Multiple Grammy-nominee Michael Martin Murphey has replaced the Subdudes as the main act during this year’s final Colorado Riverfront Concert Series show after the Subdudes canceled because of the unexpected death of one of its members.

Fruita’s Don West called it an adventure, and it’s difficult to imagine a more appropriate word to describe his two-month, solo motorcycle trip from Grand Junction to the Arctic Circle. After leaving Grand Junction earlier this summer aboard his new Suzuki V-Strom 650 purchased at Grand Valley Powersports, West returned a couple weeks ago with about 10,000 miles on his motorcycle, having traveled Alaska, the 50th, and final, U.S. state for him to see.

Have you ever had an imaginary conversation with aliens? Fine, probably not. But what if you could? What if those foreign creatures landed on Earth in a sparkly, spherical spaceship resembling a disco ball searching for answers to confounding questions such as: “Who is Kim Kardashian, and why does she have a popular mobile app game?” A question like that may seem silly but, as casual observers of a society from afar, aliens don’t care about our politics, religion and ...
