By Melinda Mawdsley
04/10/2015

Heather Waggoner was afraid to quit cold turkey. Retirement can be scary for “a workaholic,” so the Colorado Mesa University theater professor opted for a transitional retirement, working part-time the past two years. That allowed CMU to find her replacement and gave Waggoner the time to come to grips with the reality of free time. “I was afraid I wouldn’t have enough to do,” said Waggoner, 67. At the end of this school year, however, she will be a full-time ...

Green chili, a celebrated dish of the Southwest

By Melinda Mawdsley
03/28/2015

Green chili was not a dish I grew up eating. As a native Iowan, my chili was red. It always had beef. Sometimes it had beans. At one point, I distinctly remember following a recipe that called for sugar and that V8 vegetable drink. I know. When I moved to Mesa County in 2007, however, I was introduced to new chili varieties. Sure, there was red chili with beef and sometimes beans, but there was white chicken chili and this amazing green concoction of pork, green chilies and spices. As ...

The 1980s were the best! — it struck such a chord with its comedic and sincere look at teen life that ...
