Underground aliens and cattle mutilations: Dulce, New Mexico has long been the site of strange activity and conspiracy theories

Before the gory cattle mutilations, break-ins, and threatening phone calls, Dulce, New Mexico was a safe and peaceful place for R. Edmund Gomez and his family.

It wasn’t a place where you locked your doors or were wary of your neighbors, Edmund said. He and his family worked their ranch then – a ranch that had been in...

As if the world isn’t scary enough, a snow tornado was spotted in NM

Game of Thrones, Pokémon, and superheroes to hit the streets of Durango for Snowdown 2019

This week, you’ll probably see Wonder Woman sippin’ a beer at one of downtown Durango’s bars. Or, you may spy Pikachu as they belt out a drunken version of Radiohead’s “Creep” at karaoke night. Or maybe a dinosaur will beat you in beer trivia.

Umm, I’ve never been to Snowdown, so why should I go?

I’ve lived here for a few years, and I’ve never made it out for Snowdown. I’m not trying to be a buzz kill, but part of me just doesn’t get it and another part of me simply doesn’t like dressing up.

A classy lady’s guide to preparing for the apocalypse

The first (and only) time I’ve ever watched “Apocalypse Now,” I was on a substance I’d rather not name. It was college, aka the time when doing stupid things on the regular was the only way to live. I spent the entire first half of the movie ranting and raving that it wasn’t accurately depicting a real apocalypse (clearly...

Disaster prep in the Southwest: Are end times just around the corner?

Google Maps will take you most of the way to Drew Miller’s latest Fortitude Ranch, but not quite all the way there. We were trying to track this place down for our story, and per Miller’s instructions, we approached the pinpoint that Google had guided us to, and then took another turn down a steep dirt road and before...
