Bernie gets high

Bernie gets high
Want to feel and see the Bern? Jump in the car and head to the Mile High City this weekend,
where the Vermont senator will be paying a visit. On the heels of his New Hampshire Democratic Primary victory, Sen. Bernie Sanders is holding a rally at 6 p.m. Sun., Feb. 16, at the Bellco Theatre in the Colorado Convention Center. The event is first come, first served, with doors opening at 4 p.m. for the Bern-anza. This marks Sanders' second visit to Colorado during the 2020 campaign and comes just ahead of the March 3 “Super Tuesday” primaries, of which Colorado is a part.
Of course, since it’s Bernie, the event is free and open to the public. Just don’t be surprised if
you’re asked to share your seat with someone.

For the past 75 years, when most people drive past the squat, grey-stone building along the shore of the Animas River, they recognize it as “the VFW.” What most people don’t see, though – unless they’re a veteran or family of a veteran – is the multi-generational legacy of camaraderie, caring and community that thrives inside. Or the efforts under way to keep that legacy alive for a new and growing generation of veterans.
