Nucla, Colorado, just an hour’s drive from Telluride, has seen hard times ever since the U.S. uranium industry collapsed in the late 1970s. It’s a hardscrabble town, where the folks who haven’t fled barely eke out a living. One oasis of activity is The Apothecary Shoppe, the sole pharmacy within 4,000 square miles. The owner, Don Colcord, gamely occupies multiple roles as druggist, surrogate doctor, life counselor and community benefactor. Colcord’s sanguine public persona, however, belies a long-suffered private pain for which there is no drug, no cure and no relief.
