ince the announcement late in the fall semester that Colorado State University-Pueblo was facing a budget deficit that would force layoffs, a storm of backlash has taken over the university and doesn’t seem like it will end soon. 

On January 6th, Chancellor Martin visited CSU-Pueblo in order to explain why it was essential that CSU-Pueblo fire 50 employees. According to Martin, one of the ways the school would be able to fix its $3.3 million budget deficit was to layoff faculty and staff. 

As would be expected, many faculty and staff were unhappy about this news, but Professor  of Sociology Timothy McGettigan made his disapproval for the announcement public in a big way. 

A chain of emails started to be sent to all faculty, staff and students following this announcement through the university’s email system, explaining to anyone who would read them what was happening and how McGettigan viewed the situation. 

McGettigan even helped to announce and set up two rallying events on January 16 and 17 to peacefully protest the job cuts.

The rally on January 16 at Sister City Plaza in Pueblo demonstrated a collective front against the proposed budget cuts and layoffs at the university. A crowd of more than 50 …

Acoustic heartbreak in the Colorado San Juans with John Statz

Published

on

John Statz by Veronica Holyfield

Songs about heartbreak should resinate. And with John Statz they do. They’re equally soft and striking. His new full-length album “Darkness on the San Juans,” available May 11, takes an acoustic turn from his other recent work. Then, he had full bands in studios. With this project, he gathered a few friends in his living room to record. Like heartbrea…

Songs about heartbreak should resinate. And with John Statz they do. They’re equally soft and striking.
His new full-length album “Darkness on the San Juans,” available May 11, takes an acoustic turn from his other recent work. Then, he had full bands in studios. With this project, he gathered a few friends in his living room to record.
Like heartbreak itself, the album is more personal, more raw and more intimate. The Wisconsin native who now calls Denver home said he hasn’t done something quite as stripped down in a while, and when it came to get back into songwriting after the release of his last album last summer, there was also a reason to write.
It was the aftermath of a breakup.
“We retrace our steps. We look at what we thought we knew. We ultimately discover and face the truth under the stories we told ourselves along the way,” he says of the album.
In addition to the post-love songs, the album features a few songs Statz previously worked on but didn’t have a place on an album, and songs that are meant to be more acoustic. “Presidential Valet” is the story of Armistead, President John Tyler’s vale…

There are many different styles of beer. Ranging from light lagers (think Bud Light) and ales to sours, stouts, and IPAs.
Within those styles, however, are varying styles.
For example, one would think a sour beer is a sour beer, right? Wrong. According to the Beer Judge Certification Program, which defines every style of beer, there are six recognized European sour styles.
For IPAs, there are seven. American beers have four; stouts have three… You get the point.
Even with viewing the list of recognized styles, it’s not a complete list.
Take New England IPAs (NE IPA), as a prime example. Many breweries are currently mass producing this style of beer, and it’s selling like crazy.
You may have heard one of your annoying beer loving friends talk about drinking a “juice bomb,” or a requesting a “hazy IPA” at the pub, and shrugged it off. It turns out, they…
