The best way to describe Rocky Mountain Youth Corps is to ask a participant. I asked Steamboat Springs high school senior Taylor Zabel a few questions about his experience and here’s what Taylor had to say:
The perfect supper after an awesome day of skiing.
Saturday was about pride, not spite, hockey not hate, and even after a great hockey game, the end a bitter pill for one nation, it was that peace that shone through.
Getting yelled at actually has helped me learn Russian. For instance, “NO! Against the rules!!” is Russian for “Ohhh, I apologize, fine sir. We really wish you wouldn’t do that”.?
Waking at 6 a.m. to watch a college basketball game may seem like a good idea sometimes, but 4 a.m. is not one of those times.
Valentine’s Day is upon us again, and what would the middle of February be without a few selections at the local bijou to provide people with a good date night? Whether you and your significant other are planning to step out on the town or snuggle up at home with a DVD, there are plentiful films to be enjoyed for whatever your liking, many of which have come out within the last year.
As the sun sets over the mud-brick town of Jesus Maria, Mexico, we pull into a broad, open-air salon, fragrant with the smell of fresh tortillas. The people seated at a few dozen tables are in their Sunday best: shirts with ties, cowboy hats and ostrich or crocodile boots with long, pointed and silver adornments.
This is not what I expected, and I’m not talking about the lack of authentic Russian food in Krasnaya Polyana, Russia, the weather so warm you barely need a coat or even the presence of Russian cheerleaders pom-poms and all — at many Olympic venues. I’m talking about the success of the United States athletes we’re here to cover.
High overhead as darkness falls on crisp February evenings is a tiny cluster of stars that often is mistaken for the Little Dipper. Although it does have a dipper shape, with a tiny bowl and a tiny handle, its ancient name is the Pleiades star cluster.
The Olympics is the event that doesn’t sleep, and I haven’t much, either.
At a glance, Yampa Valley Medical Center’s recent accreditation by the Commission on Cancer may not mean a lot to the average resident. It can mean everything, however, to those who have, or may face, a cancer diagnosis.
While there may be plenty of quick and convenient options for dinner, hastily prepared food or grab-and-go meals are often are less nutritious and more expensive than planned, home-prepared meals.
101st Winter Carnival example of town's charming reputation
The annual Winter Carnival that shuts down Steamboat's busiest street is about as good of a definition of "Steamboat charm" as one can find.
The interviewing process at the Olympics is always challenging. It’s interesting, it’s tight spaced, and often, it’s downright frustrating.
At the Olympics, they have cheerleaders and a marching band for the halftime of speedskating events.
