  • IQ: Afghanistan and anthrax

    Afghanistan and anthrax are dominating the headlines, but we are starting to refocus equally on the news of our own back yards.
  • Note from the Publisher

    Early this year staff members at the Independent brainstormed about what unique role we could play to help make Colorado Springs a better place to work, play and raise families. Out of these discussions, the Independence Community Fund emerged and, after hours of review, our community board selected the following nine non-profits as our inaugural recipients.

    This years offering from David Mamet, Heist, is in step with his best work.
  • Monstropolicious

    Monsters, Inc. has a lot to recommend it. There's a ton of tongue-in-cheek humor, and frame after frame is packed with pop cultural references, sight gags and just plain cool action. The writers clearly went to town.
