RTD to update bus system


According to the Denver Post, the RTD has recently proposed a plan on renovating about 60 of their buses traveling on U.S. 36, or parts of I-70 from Denver to Boulder.

Indie Spotlight – New Politics


Pop punk has really made a comeback lately, with Fall Out Boy and Blink 182 dominating the radio and a flurry of new bands showing up in unexpected places with their own unique styles and takes on the genre. One of these fresh new bands that nobody seems to know about is New Politics, from none other than Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

I wouldn’t say I’m a dedicated fan of pop punk or dance punk, but I love New Politics. Their electric guitar-centered instrumentals, heavy beats, and upbeat sound have completely won me over.

High school–the place where people “find themselves.” Well, the only way that people are told that they can find and define themselves is through their relationships with others. Who they choose as friends can have a lasting impact. This whole notion has been pounded into our brains countless times over the years so now it’s all mush and a dead topic. What about the other side though? What about if a person stays away from a relationship? This has an equally powerful effect. Did you know that people can actually figure out a lot about themselves without getting caught up in the dramatic choices of others? Some can actually learn much more from being independent.


The economics of pot


Colorado’s economic future is now looking better than ever with a very unlikely candidate to boost our economy: marijuana. Yes, in the eyes of Colorado lawmakers, cannabis equals cash, and a lot of it. According to9News, pot sales exceeded $1 million on first day. With estimated revenue of over $70 million by the end of this year according to Huffington Post, this profit means big things for the state of Colorado.


In Line for iN-TEA

During weekends full of playoff games, it’s often difficult for busy students to find a quiet place to study. Homes full of family members cheering on their football team don’t exactly provide the best environment for focusing on schoolwork. But never fear, a new business in Downtown Littleton, iN-TEA provides the perfect place to do homework while enjoying a nice cup of freshly brewed tea.
