The Spring Gulch Men’s Book Club met last Thursday at the Mill Site Inn, near Ward. The club is regarded (by its members) as the oldest men’s book club in the area. This month’s book, “Wort and Pizza” (based roughly on the Tolstoy classic), seemed appropriate as the Mill Site specializes in high-altitude, high-gluten pizza, and well, there always seems to be beer available at their meetings. Pictured are (right to left) Jack St. John, Greg Harms, Dave Brininstool, Clark Hodge, and Mill Site Inn proprietor Carol. Carol commented that we were the first exclusively male book club to visit her

Do you ever feel confused about what your diet should be or wish to have alternatives to pharmaceutical medicine? Have you questioned the balance of vitamins and pharmaceuticals in your routine to wonder how what you do today might affect you long-term?
Information can be extremely confusing about health and it often can feel like every bit of information out there conflicts with something else. When it comes to navigating our own health choices, it can be

A friend said she and her children recently spent four hours at the Longmont Museum’s BUILD! The Amazing World of LEGO exhibit without tiring or getting bored. A fan of the creative toy, from the time our boys were young, I decided to check it out.

The town was full of festival-goers over last week through the weekend bringing good music to folks from near and far, and boosting the town’s economy. Besides the lessons, they enjoyed tubing, swimming, playing, jumping, dancing, eating, etc. The downtown area was congested all weekend with hardly a place to park. All enjoyed their stay in Lyons. FolksFest is August 16 through 18.
