    A child’s body was found encased in concrete in a storage unit, and police in Pueblo say they are also searching for a missing boy and girl. Investigators say the body of the child was encased in a metal container that was discovered on Jan. 10. “We arrive on scene and found this metal container with concrete in it and it’s suspicious to us. It was a newer container and it’s filled with cement. It seemed odd,” Pueblo Police Sgt. Franklyn Ortega said. As police began their investigation into the discovery of the child’s body, they said they were also...

    The race for mayor in liberal Pueblo, Colorado, was turned upside down Tuesday when a Republican member of the city council ran for mayor and won. Back in November 2022, city council president and owner of Graham’s Grill and Ruby’s, Heather Graham, announced her run for mayor of Pueblo, Colorado. Graham may have seemed like a long shot, being a Republican in the famously liberal city. “This community that we love has been going in the wrong direction the last few years. I just can’t sit back and do nothing,” Graham said when she launched her campaign, according to The...

    The Biden administration’s war on the ability of American Indians and tribal nations to develop their energy resources is finally receiving the probing attention it deserves, resulting in an aggressive pushback from American Indians and tribal leaders. The tipping point came last month when Biden’s Department of the Interior announced a 20-year moratorium on new oil and gas leases on 350,000 acres of federal land within 10 miles of Chaco Culture National Historic Park in northwestern New Mexico. Navajo Nation, which earlier withdrew its support for a 5-mile park buffer due to the economic cost to tribal members, had lobbied...

    Last week, the US sought from North Korea the return of the navy ship USS Pueblo which they seized on January 23, 1968. The House passed a resolution to get the vessel back after 55 years. The US has maintained its position in the matter, terming the decision to seize the ship and its crew illegal as per international law, highlighting the vessel is the property of the US, and they want it to be returned. Meanwhile, in a report published by Rodong Sinmun, North Korea’s official newspaper, the country has vowed to wipe out the US land, not just...

    He’s in a blizzard of trouble. A Colorado man was arrested on suspicion of robbing the same Dairy Queen twice in one day. Pueblo, Colo., cops also believe Levi John Roberts, 37, tried and failed to carjack two people during those robberies. Roberts first robbed the ice cream shop around 9 p.m. Monday, at which time police responded to a call about an armed robbery, according to ABC affiliate KRDO in Colorado. The bandit reportedly made off with an undetermined amount of cash, but was forced to make his escape on foot after unsuccessfully trying to carjack a customer at...

    Once dismissed as an “odd-looking little artifact,” the tool pushes back evidence for tattooing in the U.S. Southwest by a millennium. The tool ismade from a bundle of prickly pear cactus spines, their tips saturated with dark pigment, inserted into a handle carved from lemonade sumac and bound with yucca fiber. Some 2,000 years ago, a tattooist in what’s now southeast Utah used this tool to hand-poke a design into someone’s skin. After the point of one of the cactus spines broke off, the tool was likely tossed into a trash heap. It remained there for centuries, in a pile...
  • Scarlet macaw DNA points to ancient breeding operation in Southwes

    Historically, scarlet macaws lived from South America to eastern coastal Mexico and Guatemala, thousands of miles from the American Southwest. Previously, researchers thought that ancestral Puebloan people might have traveled to these natural breeding areas and brought birds back, but the logistics of transporting adolescent birds are difficult. None of the sites where these early macaw remains were found contained evidence of breeding—eggshells, pens or perches. "We were interested in the prehistoric scarlet macaw population history and the impacts of human direct management," said George. "Especially any evidence for directed breeding or changes in the genetic diversity that could co-occur...

    The owners of a Colorado pizza joint say there’s a cheese thief in their midst after $5,000 to $7,000 worth of provolone has gone missing from their kitchen since mid-March. Hoss Kashani, owner of The Do Drop Inn based in Pueblo, Colo.—told KRDO that he noticed he had run out of cheese about a month ago. Despite the high volume of pizzas his shop prepares, Kashani says completely running out of cheese was unusual. "Middle of the week I ran out cheese and I was like, 'Oh my God'," said Kashani.

    Mon Jun 5 09:31:01 2006 Pacific Time New Mexico's Chaco Canyon: A Place of Kings and Palaces? BOULDER, Colo., June 5 (AScribe Newswire) -- Kings living in palaces may have ruled New Mexico's Chaco Canyon a thousand years ago, causing Pueblo people to reject the brawny, top-down politics in the centuries that followed, according to a University of Colorado at Boulder archaeologist. University of Colorado Museum anthropology Curator Steve Lekson, who has studied Chaco Canyon for several decades, said one argument for royalty comes from the rich, crypt-style burials of two men discovered deep in a Chaco Canyon "great house"...
