    Each instructor has his or her own style, but Andy Stanford put a unique spin on teaching shooting. “I used to play the accordion and sing ‘The Gringo Pistolero’ after each of my shooting courses.“ The anecdote reveals the two contradictory sides of Stanford’s personality: A championship shooter, Stanford had been a combat marksman since 1977; years later he turned his back on shooting and focused on music. “I started shooting at an early age,” he said. “When I was 15 I started combat pistol competition. My mom would drive me two hours.“ The hobby was good for him, he...

    Hurricane Irma forces cancellation of University of Northern Colorado vs. Florida football game Samuel Mustari September 7, 2017 Hurricane Irma wins. It might not even make an appearance in Gainesville, Fla., but in the best interest of student-athletes at the University of Northern Colorado and the University of Florida, the football game between the two schools scheduled for Saturday was canceled because of the impending landfall of Hurricane Irma. Because the schools do not share a common open date, the game will not be rescheduled. However, UNC's payday — originally set at $625,000 — is being negotiated by officials from...

    Man who claimed neo-Nazi haircut led to stabbing in Colorado actually stabbed himself, police say By: Blair Miller SHERIDAN, Colo. – A man who claimed he’d been stabbed outside a Sheridan restaurant on Aug. 16 because his haircut made him look like a neo-Nazi actually stabbed himself, police say.

  • Confederate-themed mascot at Weld Central High School stirs up controversy (Colorado)

    Greeley Tribune ^ | 26 Aug 17 | James Redmond
    Two conflicting petitions regarding Weld Central High School's strikingly Civil-war-era-soldier-looking mascot, the Weld Central Rebel, are currently circulating online among community members. The petitions — one advocating a change in school mascot, the other defending its existence — mirror high-profile incidents across the nation regarding disagreements about Civil War monuments and homages. The contention at Weld Central arose in the week following violence at a white nationalist rally Aug. 12 in Charlottesville, Va., protesting the removal of a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee. Around the country officials have removed, often quietly, Confederate monuments. Duke University removed a statue...
  • LOL: ‘Shoot Selfies, Not Animals’ PETA Campaign Gets Hilariously Trolled by Hunters…

    Louder With Crowder ^ | Friday August 25 2017 | Kacie Burnett
    “Shoot Selfies, Not Animals” is a phrase so moronic only PETA could have conjured it up. It’s the name of their latest anti-hunting campaign, which has been making the rounds online. The activist group launched the photo frame a few days ago. It’s now the number one filter currently on Facebook. It didn’t take long for the filter to go viral, but not for the reasons PETA hoped. Hunters quickly jumped onboard and hijacked the campaign in a hilarious trolling. Naturally, PETA responded rather butt-hurtedly. Courtesy of their blog: It’s not every day that thousands of hunters throw their support...

    How Weld law enforcement is working with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to combat gun crime In 2016, the new year opened with five shootings in Colorado Springs. Those shootings were spread across the city, but as police collected evidence from each crime scene, detectives began to suspect they were linked. Police found similarities on the spent shell casings they gathered. Every shell bears a specific "fingerprint" from the gun from which it was fired, a set of distinctive markings on the shell casing left by the gun. Each gun leaves different markings, making shell casings an...
