New report tells us what we already know

Boulder’s cost of housing is sparking final exodus of dwindling middle class

By Matt Cortina

This just in: Boulder is expensive. But the concentration of our wealth (about half of Boulder households make $75,000 or more annually) and the rate at which our wealth is growing is on a collision course with the dwindling number of affordable houses and rentals.

Greenhouse gas

Alone on the moon

A Beatles fan retells an out-of-this-world experience with the boys from Liverpool 50 years after their Red Rocks concert

Ebola anxiety

Are fears of an American outbreak justified?

By Matt Cortina

Perhaps more widespread than the outbreak of the Ebola virus is the outbreak of Ebola virus paranoia. With more than a thousand people dead, evacuations of infected foreigners to the U.S. and Europe, and an escalating number of new infections in west Africa, it’s hard to blame folks for getting a little antsy.
