Nick Lachey wins The Masked Singer!

Breaking! Piglet (a/k/a Nick Lachey) wins The Masked Singer! (98 Degrees) (I had no idea he was such a good singer!) // Also Congratulations to Cam Anthony for winning The Voice and to Chayce Beckham for winning American Idol! // Talent Needed: DDP has issued a call for local artists and musicians interested in participating in Taste of Colorado. Organizers said this year’s festival will exclusively feature local food vendors. Interested musicians, restauranteurs, marketplace vendors, and artists are asked to submit their interest by June 1, 2021. See “Business News / Taste of Colorado”

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. Let us resolve to, once and for all, defeat the stigma. Just talk to someone! And if you are struggling with depression and suicidal impulses, please call the Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255. Please see our stories under “Thoughts and Prayers.” And know that, if you decide to end your life, a) you WILL be missing out on a lot of wonderful things, and b) you will leave behind people who will forever be haunted and asking themselves, “What could I have done?” I know. My BFF from 1st grade thru 12th + took herself out at the age of 21. And I have never forgotten. Happy Heavenly Birthday May 30, Jackie. You are still much loved.
