Art of Tom Russell to be on exhibit

By Melinda Mawdsley
07/28/2014

Artist and musician Tom Russell’s interest in art began as a young boy for very “young boy” reasons: He loved the smell of oil paint and he loved the paintings his grandmother did of champion boxer Muhammad Ali and other childhood sports heroes. Then, 10 years ago, Russell decided to take up painting more seriously, selling works immediately and producing record covers for himself and others, including his records, “Mesabi” and “Aztec Jazz.” For ...

Gods and heroes

By Melinda Mawdsley

From A to Z — Athena to the zodiac — Greek mythology is comprised of fantastical stories of heroism and deceit starring beautiful goddesses, sculpted gods and heinous beasts. They have evoked a long-held interest in ancient Greek tales. But beware. Read this warning in 2009’s “The Mythology Handbook”: “These tales of gods, heroes, and men are truly fascinating and are apt to take a powerful hold of one’s imagination.

When sharing a trail, respecting rules a must

By Melinda Mawdsley
07/17/2014

I like cute, well-behaved dogs, so this column isn’t because I hate dogs. This column is about my frustration when dog owners choose what rules they want to follow, including this rule: Dogs aren’t allowed on Hanging Lake Trail. The reason I know dogs aren’t allowed on Hanging Lake Trail is because the sign at the trailhead read, “No Dogs.” There’s another sign in the parking lot with a red, warning arrow also noting dogs are prohibited on the ...

07/17/2014

The first thing I noticed was the smell. Co-worker Rachel Sauer and I had barely exited our car when the intoxicating scent of evergreen trees mixed with fresh mountain air after a rain shower welcomed us with open arms. “I’m so happy,” we each said at the same time. Although Rachel and I love living in Grand Junction, we also enjoy places where morning temperatures stay below 70 degrees and tree cover dampens the sun’s intensity.

Living nearly 40 years with a hole in his heart took a toll on Jody Hudson. Sure, Hudson, now 44 and a Grand Junction Fire Department firefighter and paramedic, looks back on his childhood fondly and loves his wife and children dearly, but Hudson spent most of his life longing to meet, hug and talk to the siblings he knew he had but could never touch.

She even canned tomatoes! It was one of the most excellent things I’ve ever seen.) (This is Rachel, by the ...
