Washington Post Op-ed: Trump's anti-LGBT Army secretary nominee thinks veterans like me have 'a disease' 23.4.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Like Mark Green — President Donald Trump’s nominee for secretary of the Army — I served my country in uniform. I was proud to be an infantry officer and retired honorably after 34 years. But as a transgender member of the military, I hid my authentic self for decades to continue serving the country I love.

Ian Poulter, Europe’s Ryder Cup star, missed the cut and lost his fully e...

Healthy eating: White bean chicken chili 17.4.2017 Steamboat Pilot
1 1/2 cups chopped green chiles (Pueblo roasted chiles work well) 1 tablespoon ground cumin 1 to 2 teaspoons ground black pepper 1/2 teaspoon white pepper 1 bunch cilantro leaves, roughly chopped Rinse beans well, cover with water and soak overnight; 2-3 cans of beans can be substituted. If you would like to avoid buying the chicken stock and chicken breasts, make your own stock by boiling down a package of chicken thighs, or cut up whole chicken and use this meat and stock instead of the pricier chicken breast.
