Weird Colorado news

For better or worse, Colorado is a place that’s never short on strange headlines. In fact, some of the top headlines from the month of March include a cold case solved because of a can of Coke, a beef with the Nebraska governor, and a man peeing on a plane. We love you Colorado, but you weird us out!

Weird, strange, and surprising news from around the state

We had high hopes for the new year, but apparently 2021 isn’t getting any less weird than the prior one. Guess we need to buckle up for this funky ass ride. Sorry folks; there is no ejection seat on this one. We’re all stuck together.

On the night of December 20, 1984, Jonelle Matthews returned home to an empty house after performing Christmas carols at a local nursing home. The 12-year-old Greeley, Colorado, resident wasn’t supposed to be home alone for long. Her father was just down the road at her sister’s basketball game. Her mother was out of town to...

Get your rear end outta town

Rarely will we ever suggest that you should take a road trip for shopping, but today is unlike any day, and that’s exactly what we’re going to tell you to do. If you’re looking for a way to pass the time, might we suggest that you hop in the car and high tail it to Tucson, AZ? In this mid-size Arizona metropolis, you’ll find...

The truth is (probably) out there

Are humans alone in this vast universe? It’s a question as old as time — one that’s not easily answered.

Bigfoot, the Slide Rock Bolter, and Chupacabra, oh my!

The night Brenda Harris discovered Bigfoot on her porch started off quite ordinary. It was a hot summer night in Upper Fruitland, on the west side of Farmington, where she lived with her husband and two children. Her husband had just left for his graveyard shift and her brother and children’s cousins were staying the...

Some dude is claiming he found Forrest Fenn’s treasure

In what hopefully proves to be the final twist in the tale of the Forrest Fenn treasure, after months of anonymity, a Michigan man is claiming that he was the finder of the hidden chest.

Neither here nor there: Monoliths appearing and disappearing all over the planet is freaking people out

While the mysterious monolith dropped in the middle of the Utah desert is now gone, it lives on in the imaginations of bored people everywhere.

Confused? So is everybody else.

In November, a strange silver monolith was found in the Utah desert. No one knew where it came from or how it got there. The structure was...

Mysterious drones and buried treasure

If you haven’t noticed, 2020 has been a weird year: it’s been stressfully contentious, horribly unlucky, and has brought out both the best and worst in people. If you haven’t noticed any of these things, we highly recommend that you crawl back under the rock from whence you came. Trust us. Ignorance is bliss.

We have big news! DGO Mag is going monthly!

As I was trying to think of the words to say in this column, the only thing that came to mind were the lyrics to that old song Turn! Turn! Turn! by The Byrds:

To everything (turn, turn, turn)

There is a season (turn, turn, turn)

And a time to every purpose, under heaven

A time to be born, a time to...
