    Colorado health officials estimate that it will cost $5 million to launch an emergency water-pumping program next week to avert a potential catastrophic blowout at an old mine tunnel here. Such an event could send a toxic brew laced with heavy metals into the Arkansas River and harm hundreds of people in this historic mountain community. Jim Martin, executive director of the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, told townspeople Friday the state will do everything it can to jump-start a response plan that includes pumping water out of the tunnel to relieve pressure and to treat the water...

    Changing Lives At 13,000 Feet It may be several months until the America's Marines television commercial hits the air, but Tuesday we got a powerful reminder of how strong the connection is between Americans and their Marine Corps. Filming for the commercial wrapped up Tuesday just ahead of snow flurries, 13,000 feet up in Colorado's Rocky Mountains. More than 100 people showed up for the production, all braving rapidly plunging temperatures and each with a slightly different motivation for making the drive. A bus full of students from Ridge View Academy, south of Denver, drove more than three hours to...

    The Climax mine will pour molybdenum once again. Owner Phelps Dodge of Phoenix on Wednesday said it would spend $200 million to $250 million to resume strip-mine operations at the top of Fremont Pass - after shuttering it for more than 20 years. The company expects to begin harvesting the stainless steel-hardening mineral by the end of 2009. It plans to produce up to 30 million pounds of molybdenum per year for at least 20 years and hire 300 to work in the mine.

    Ken Chlouber still runs in Leadville 100 trail race, races burros and rides bulls... The siren song of politics keeps calling Ken Chlouber. "I'm not good at doing nothing," he said, although promoting an ultra-marathon, running in burro races and riding bulls and motorcycles hardly qualifies as "nothing." The Leadville Republican was supposed to be through with politics after the 2002 session of the Colorado Legislature, thanks to term limits. After four years away from the state house, though, Chlouber has decided to run for the seat in the Colorado House of Representatives now held by Breckenridge Democrat Gary Lindstrom....

People enjoy a sense of freedom up here, and they speak with rare pride and joy about their famous and friendly city council. Two of...
