Hi there, I’m Marley! As you know, January is a time for new beginnings; I know I’m ready for mine! Speaking of new beginnings, I’d like to introduce you to Second Chance’s latest staff addition, Krissi Goetz. Krissi has been working with animals for quite some time and is here to help in ou…

I grew up as the Jan Brady of my family. In the middle of the pack, a little awkward and unathletic, not really noticed or performing well in extra-curriculars or academics — I was present in the family, but to notice me, you really had to look around. 

The first year of this new decade was not for the faint of heart. It was quite possibly one of the most challenging years many of us have had to endure in our lives. I think we can all agree that we have had to make sacrifices for the greater good. We have suffered, and we have encountered l…

As we ushered in 2021 with a hope for better days, welcome news came through that San Miguel County health officials were moving us to Level Orange, or high risk, on the state dial, an improvement from the severe risk, or Level Red status, of the preceding weeks.

Is it time yet for writing the post mortem on the Trump presidency? When is it really over? Is it the day after the election, the day each of the states certify their elections, the day the electors meet and proclaim the winner, the day that Congress accepts the decision of the Electoral Col…

A new year represents new beginnings, new possibilities and new ways at looking at things. These are important considerations knowing we have our work cut out for us in 2021 as the pandemic continues to have an impact. This first Pet Column of 2021 is not intended to set a negative tone, but…

Writing the last Pet Column of the year is a true honor that I am taking very seriously. It does create pressure on me to write something that will have a strong impact upon readers as 2020 comes to a much-anticipated end. So I put a lot of thought into it, and I am not going to wax eloquent…
