Broncos season ticketholders are getting their bills for the 2017 season. The team should improve over the next season with our young quarterbacks gaining more experience.

Poker has become a big-time sport

Poker has become a big-time sport

I’ve been enjoying recent poker columns in The Gambler and have played a few times at a friend’s house.  Along with the poker, the hosts provide a great assortment of pizza and nibbles that make the evening very entertaining. A second great option of this home game is that losers start a “cash game”. So, […]

A catty column if ever there was one

A catty column if ever there was one

Driving to work, one sees so many people out walking their dogs. The walk serves two purposes—exercising the dog and the owner. What I don’t see is anyone walking their cat. Somehow cats just get off living in our homes, using litter boxes and spending their days lounging comfortably on soft carpets. Sometimes they are […]

Humor is good remedy for cabin fever

Cold weather, long traffic lines, Broncos left out of play-off games, stock show over—we must all suffer several more months of winter. This story is reprinted again this year in case you missed it.

THE LAST HAND – A good cabin-fever joke about our lovely snow

It seems, historically, whenever the National Western Stock Show arrives, the bitter cold weather comes right along with the fancy livestock, horses, sheep and chickens.

Bombeck remembered

The new year is a good time to remember Erma’s philosophy She wasn’t a politician, never held public office, but offered advice from her heart that seemed to heal our souls and tickle our funny bones. I heard Erma Bombeck speak many years ago. She addressed a newspaper audience at our annual press convention at […]

This year is about to wind up in the history books. Overall, 2016 was a good year for the gambling industry with the growth in construction and housing industries.

Wall Street Journal highlights nationwide gambling

Wall Street Journal highlights nationwide gambling

I’m not sure how many gamers out there read The Wall Street Journal, but it had a very interesting article about the gambling business back in September. Have had it on my desk to “columize” (a new word), and here’s the gist of what the paper had to say about gambling in general. Gambling has […]

THE LAST HAND – Thanksgiving is turkey-trot time

THE LAST HAND – Thanksgiving is turkey-trot time

I guess if the Cubs can win the World Series, Donald Trump can become president. Widespread prosperity will be good for everyone and he should create more jobs for everyone. In the meantime, life will go on and we will enjoy this great fall weather and await the blizzards that will no doubt hit us […]

THE LAST HAND – Lady luck shining on veterans Nov. 11

Veterans Day is Nov. 11 and we salute our veterans from wars dating back to World War II. Not many of these heroes are left, but they truly were the greatest generation.
