We have to overcome our strife, conflict

In the 1800s, when there were but only 35,000 people living in the entire territory of what is now known as Colorado, with many small farming and ranching communities, there came times when the need to work in a cooperative manner overrode all other considerations — and the people came together to help each other.… Continue Reading We have to overcome our strife, conflict

Learn history, flight at WWII aviation museum

Phil Heacock recently met a woman around 30 years old who asked him, “What’s World War II?” Heacock couldn’t believe his ears.

Halle Friedman grew up watching her dad practice medicine as the only doctor and surgeon in a rural area in Washington.
