    McDonald’s pledge last week to start using cage-free eggs is only a small step in preventing staggering suffering endured by millions of birds.

    McDonald’s made headlines recently by announcing it will transition to cage-free eggs by 2025. Hooray: You can feel better about eating that Egg McMuffin.

  • Dear Editor,

    The Fort Lupton Optimist Club held their annual Ducks Across the Rockies race Sunday, Sept. 13.  The event took place at the corner of Weld County roads 6 and 19, at 2 p.m. This year, water levels were perfect, and so was the weather.

    DENVER — With the Denver Broncos season underway, the Better Business Bureau is warning fans to watch out for scammers that might be trying to peddle counterfeit tickets online and outside the stadium right up until the opening kickoff. 

    BBB reminds everyone that they run the risk of getting thrown for a loss if they decide to gamble on a less than reputable ticket source.

    During a recent visit to Copenhagen, I squeezed in a visit with city officials to learn more about the Danish health system, particularly the country’s arrangements for long-term care, a topic that draws endless complaints from American families, including many readers of this column.

    For today’s report, I have a bunch of statistics for you.

    Where are you going? Come back here and sit still while I drill these stats into your head!

    I realize that numbers can numb the brain, but this is a good story, and I promise that these statistics are easy to absorb. In fact, the number 400 pretty much sums it up.

    September is National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month. While suicide often catches surviving family members and friends by surprise, a lot of scientific research exists about the causes and deterrents of suicide. Knowledge makes a difference and saves lives.

  •  Dear Editor,

    The United Way of Weld County this year is celebrating its 75th year of making a significant impact in the county. The Community Campaign has officially begun, and your support of United Way is needed now more than ever. The 2015-2016 campaign goal is for $3.2 million to make community wide advancements in education, income (financial stability) and health. 

  • In my blog last week I talked about my Colorado road trip [in early August] with PMQ (www.pmq.com) “think-tankers” Richard “Daddio” Ames and Steve “Bodega Highway” Hitchcock. But if I’m being perfectly honest, one of the Rocky Mountain highlights of my July journey was the meatball sandwich I inhaled July 15, at Wholly Stromboli, in Fort Lupton, site of the Great Western Pizza Summit.

  • Some days, I get an irresistible compulsion to tear out my hair.

    My latest outbreak was triggered by a New York Times opinion piece by Peter Georgescu, the former chairman of the giant PR outfit, Young & Rubicam.

  • My family has been involved in water issues and finding better ways to irrigate and conserve water since the 1960s. Even then, we knew that water storage was the key to the future water needs in Colorado. Even then, we knew that if we didn’t do anything to keep Colorado’s water in Colorado, agriculture would be the avenue our urban cousins would pursue to meet their thirsty needs.

  • The campaigning for next year’s elections is starting to draw more attention, and with it comes a focus on voters and their mood. Which is all well and good, but it leaves out of the equation one large bloc of citizens: people who are eligible to vote, but don’t.

  • Maybe it’s just a coincidence, but in the year in which small-d democracy — for both good and ill — has taken over the presidential season, the Colorado Republican establishment has chosen to opt out of the process.

    If there’s a fever out there — and there undoubtedly is — the typically anti-vax Republicans have gone full immunization protocol to combat it.
