It was a little past dawn when the teen stirred, his eyes scrunching before flickering open. It took a moment for him to remember the events of the night before; the corpses, the fire and most of all, his dead twin. He jerked upwards with a panicked cry, his body crashing back onto the bedroll as his broken ribs and wrist flared in agony.

It was sometime past midnight when Isidore saw the dim reflection of the moon on the ground. Dropping the reins of his mare, he knelt, letting his pants soak in water from the soil. His eyes, accustomed to the dark foliage, managed to make out what seemed to be a handle. He frowned gently, letting his hands wrap around it before pulling.

As the first month of college passes by and exams start to place stress on many students, especially freshmen, there are many health issues that suddenly start to arise. At times, students may feel depressed, stressed out about academic and social pressures, and feel anxiety from being away from home. "These pressures for young adults can create the perfect storm for eating disorders development," says Bonnie Brennan, the Senior Clinical Director at the Eating Recovery Center. Leaving home for the first time can present challenges that freshman students may not have encountered when living with their parents. In this way, these challenges can result in dieting, over-exercising, and bingeing on food. "Eating disorders are complex illnesses with biological, psychological, and sociocultural contributing factors," remarks Brennan. Common triggers that can trigger eating disorder are "dieting, stresses, social pressures, and even genetics," according to Brennan.

But the only way to understand what made their simple joke of, "Thank you, we're clipping.," funny, is to understand Clipping.

It seems that when large entertainment tours roll through Denver, a problem arises. Mayhem Festival, featuring the likes of Korn and Avenged Sevenfold, decided they needed two days and two different venues to perform at; the Oddball Comedy Tour had one of the smallest lineups for their Red Rocks show; Riot Fest, as was all over the news, got kicked out of their initial venue and moved to Sports Authority Field. Uproar wasn't any different, opting for only half of their talent to rock the 1st Bank Center. Luckily, the artists that performed were some of the top bands on the tour.

The trees swayed slightly in the gentle breeze, their leaves rustling as a horse thundered by. Isidore leaned forward in his saddle, ducking underneath the branches that wanted to introduce him to the hard surface of the forest floor. Experienced hands tugged gently on the reins of his mare, bringing her to a slow stop before dismounting.

Fire was spreading from house to house, consuming the wood as the kindling it was. Had one looked closely, there were bodies littering the dirt paths, most donning fatal wounds and if they didn't, they were charred beyond recognition. There was next to nothing left in the once populated village. Death has visited, collecting the souls of the departed.

In the 40 years since, the center has evolved into a National Historic Landmark, a thriving business, and a source of community pride for citizens of Golden.
