Service increased now through the end of the ski season

  • By Justin Criado, Editor

In April 1979, singer Ozzy Osbourne learned he’d been fired from seminal heavy metal band Black Sabbath, which took the world by storm throughout the decade with their original brand of down-tuned, doom-laden music. Osbourne, with no guarantee of success, decided to embark on a solo career, quickly releasing two records — “Blizzard of Ozz” (1980) and “Diary of a Madman” (1981) — after the split. They were both massive hits. One Ozzy original, “Flying High Again,” seemed to recognize his bounce back to the top.

Over the past two years, commercial service at Telluride Regional Airport (TEX) had

This week, take a moment to wish Bear Creek a happy birthday.

On Jan. 23, 1995, ownership of the 320-acre parcel that stretches south from Telluride Town Park, formerly a patchwork of mining claims and private lands in lower Bear Creek Canyon, passed to the then-newly formed San Miguel Conservation Foundation (SMCF) and, ultimately, the Town of Telluride.

Telluride residents are familiar with the devastating effects of wildfires. The fires during the summer of 2018 were disastrous for parts of Colorado. Fortunately, most residential areas were spared. For the current wildfires in Australia, the same is not true.

The continent’s megafires are burning in populated areas, which is atypical. Wildfires of this scale usually burn in remote regions in Canada or Siberia, where they can burn out without threatening people, as

By the time you read this, the Dakota Home Store, a fixture on Telluride’s Main Street for more than two decades, will be no more.

All gone: the carefully selected tables and chairs, the scrupulously curated kitchen supplies. Goodbye to Joya and Danny, the golden retrievers who lounged inside the warm store in winter and greeted kids outside in summer.

For that matter, farewell to the golden-retriever-shaped salt-and-pepper shakers, one of the few items left in the store Friday afternoon. Tom and Anne Connor, Joya and Danny’s owners — also the owners of
