    More asinine overreaction from the quivering minds of school officials In Loveland Colorado, about 45 minutes North of Denver, a 7-year-old 2nd grader has been suspended for trying to save the world. It appears that the boy lobbed "an imaginary grenade into a box with what he called pretend evil forces inside." According to the child, he pretended to blow up the box "so nothing can get out and destroy the world." Thank God he wasn't carrying a Hello Kitty Bubble Gun, a small piece of paper, or a pointed finger. Who knows what kind of imaginary trauma he could...

    Rocco Landesman is the chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts. Boy, does he know how to spin the official line on offensive art. In a recent interview in Cincinnati, he was asked vaguely about controversy. "The best art taps into deep feelings, sometimes to comfort and sometimes to confront. Art can be very uncomfortable," Landesman said. "That can lead to strong reactions. For some of us, it draws us into the arts over our lifetimes and careers. For others, it creates strong negative feelings." Landesman wasn't being asked specifically about negative feelings over the Loveland Museum Gallery in...

  • It's smut, not art, Loveland protesters say

    LOVELAND — About 25 to 30 residents stood outside the Loveland Museum/Gallery this morning protesting a portion of an exhibit that appears to show Jesus Christ involved in a sex act. "This is not art, it's smut, pure and simple," said Ronald Minto, who said he's not against graphic art per se. But the color lithograph produced by Stanford University's Enrique Chagoya is outright pornography, he said. "This is a museum, not an X-rated book store," said Minto. The lithograph is spread over 12 panels, each about 7- by 7-inches, and is called "The Misadventures of the Romantic Cannibals." It's...

    To passers-by, the event at Lake Loveland on Wednesday looked like any other friendly picnic. Casseroles were served on disposable plates, and the local wasp population was abuzz in anticipation of finding a soda can left unattended for too long. But a closer inspection of the 10 or so participants showed it was more than just a dinner — it was an opportunity to send a message. Several local gun owners used the picnic at South Shore Scenic Park to show solidarity with a man who was approached last year by police because he was openly carrying a firearm. Six...

    Associated Press ^ | Dec 29 | (AP) -
    As if Colorado residents don't have enough snow to dig out from, one resident is offering more for a price on eBay. Starting bids were holding steady Friday at 99 cents for snow from "Blizzard I and Blizzard II" being offered by Mary Walker. She and husband, Jim, got the idea for selling snow after shoveling mounds from two storms a week apart that together dumped more than 4 feet along the Front Range. "I figured eBay has ghosts and all sorts of weird stuff, so why not snow?" said Walker, who teaches business workshops on employee communications. How much...

    Loveland resident Bill Busch watched through his glass door as a small black bear grasped a bird feeder in its front paws and yanked it to the ground. Then, the yearling lounged under the tree in the back yard in southwest Loveland and munched on seeds. “He’s a cute little devil,” Busch said. “He was really cute when he was sitting in my tree earlier like a person with his fanny down and his arms hanging.” The roughly 80-pound bear spent all Saturday in the neighborhood lounging, eating and jumping from yard to yard on Heather Drive and Ida Drive....

    Brian Morse, 54, was declared dead at the scene, at a home in the 2300 block of Fountain Drive, after his glove became stuck in the wood chipper and pulled him in. The Larimer County Coroner's Office identified Morse, owner of Brian's Tree Trimming & Removal Service, using fingerprints. The cause of death was listed as "total morselization." The gloves protected Morse's hands, leaving the fingerprints intact.

    LOVELAND (AP) - In a move that has been unsuccessful elsewhere in the United States, 17 workers at a Wal-Mart Tire & Lube Express have taken the first step to unionize. The National Labor Relations Board planned a hearing Thursday to consider the workers' request to be represented by the United Food and Commercial Workers Local 7. "Wal-Mart workers don't have to be second-class citizens," said Ernest Duran Jr., president of the union, which also represents more than 17,000 grocery workers at King Soopers, Safeway and Albertsons. Union officials argue the workers in the automotive service department are separate from...

    American flags - handheld flags as well as depictions on clothing - stood out in a sea of people gathered Sunday to talk about the possible war in Iraq. Among the crowd were people whose opinions, ages and backgrounds varied as much as the words spoken by the four panelists aligned on both sides of whether war is the answer. During the forum at the library, Tom Buchanan and Greg Snyder advocated war while David Carr and Mark Easter favored continued, tough U.N. inspections. All seemed to agree that something needs to be done to disarm Saddam Hussein and to...

    Group wants city's support on Iraq By Dave Brendsel Reporter-Herald Staff Writer A Loveland peace group will ask the City Council tonight to pass a resolution urging national leaders to pursue diplomacy before war with Iraq.

Tonight, several of them will ask the council to support a resolution that calls for a "diplomatic resolution...
