Visions of Sugarplums

Celebrating its third year as a “must-see event,” the Broadmoor Christmas House has opened for the season.

A Blue Season

A Blue Season

“I’ll have a blue Christmas without you. I’ll be so blue just thinking about you. Decorations of red on a green Christmas tree... Won’t be the same, dear, if you’re not here with me …”.

Sweet Fantasies

Sweet Fantasies

As snowflakes swirl and the holidays draw near, our thoughts turn to family gatherings and fanciful feasts–crisp roast turkey with sumptuous sides setting the stage for the crowning glory–a show-stopping dessert.

Fresh Vs. Fake: and the winner is...

Fresh Vs. Fake: and the winner is...

As the holiday season approaches, the age-old debate heats up. Is it right or wrong in the name of tradition, good or bad for the environment, positive or negative for world trade, that one would consider decorating their home with faux greenery including garland, wreaths or the centerpiece Christmas tree? The answer is there is no clear-cut answer so it is best to simply understand the facts surrounding both choices.

Art Collectors are a Funny Lot

Art Collectors are a Funny Lot

When I tour the homes of three prominent Springs art collectors, I expect them to get puffed up and self-important. I expect them to go on about how much this painting is worth or how much that sculpture has appreciated in value.

Early Arrival

Early Arrival

Cindy Jackson will never forget the birth of her first child. Born at full-term, he was admitted to the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) when he was only two days old.

NORTH POLE – Santa’s Workshop at the North Pole on Pikes Peak started over half a century ago as a copycat idea, but has grown into an integral part of the Colorado Springs community, keeping the Santa mystique alive while benefitting many.

A Game for Life

A Game for Life

Tick, tock, tick, tock. Seconds click away endlessly as a pair of combatants brood and postulate silently while hunched over a 64-square checkered board littered with pieces of varying styles, shapes and sizes. War is being waged on the battlefield laid out before them, each move a crucial parry of will against will, force against force.

Prospecting for Black Gold

Prospecting for Black Gold

Colorado oil and gas production reached a 56-year high in 2012 and shows no signs of diminishing any time soon. Driven by the development of horizontal drilling techniques and expanded use of hydraulic fracturing, the surge in production has yet to significantly affect the Pikes Peak region, but the potential exists, given that the Denver-Julesburg Basin underlies El Paso County.
