While this 1950s vintage promotional film for Colorado Springs isn’t as wonderfully campy as Time To Live!, it’s ripe with exquisitely over-rendered ad copy that doesn’t fail to marvelously capture our bygone and “glamorous little city of 65,000” as the narrator and his wife Blessing live the dream of the pioneers in style […]Continue Reading →

We’re continually blown away by the fruits of the house music scene here in the Pikes Peak region.

Given our spotty track record for supporting arts and culture that isn’t […]Continue Reading →

Sheriff Terry Maketa Orders Closure of Old Stage Road and Gold Camp Road
Fire danger remains extremely high with low relative humidity levels, unseasonably warm temperatures and an abundance of fire fuels. Fire fighting resources are spread thin due to the ongoing effort to fight the Waldo Canyon Fire.
For these reasons, Sheriff Terry Maketa has ordered a road closure in the 2100 block of Old Stage Road effective at 10:00 a.m. on Tuesday, July 3, 2012. The closure effectively denies access to Gold Camp Road. To solidify the closure of the area, the Teller County Sheriff’s Office will close Gold Camp Road within their jurisdiction at Lazy S Ranch Road. The closure will remain in affect until further notice. For those with homes within the closure area, access into the area will be granted with proof of residency.Continue Reading →

Each summer a particular refreshment seems to mysteriously make its way from our subsconscious toward our frontal lobes to become the mascot drink of the summer.
