Awakening a lifetime

Access Art tours at BMoCA use art to open conversations with people with Alzheimer’s and dementia

By Elizabeth Miller
It’s a warm spring day when John, dressed in a red plaid shirt with notes peeking out of the breast pocket, the first few scrawled pencil lines of which read yesterday’s date and “7:49 a, wind blowing from the west very hard,” and tan corduroys that sag in the seat, pauses on the sidewalk in front of the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art. He looks up at the sign over the entrance, then down at the door, up again to the sign, then his hand reaches for the door.

Wet for 50:

Boulder open water swimmer Matt Moseley looks to set a new record on the Colorado River

By Tom Winter
The river starts as nothing, just a trickle of snowmelt in the high Rockies, the wet drops of a winter’s precipitation falling off of lichen-covered rocks, streaking cliffs in dark zebra stripes of moisture.

Only you can prevent West Nile virus

Recent tests show the virus has arrived across Boulder County

By Mollie Putzig
With a backpack full of specialized bacteria, a force of technicians patrols Boulder-area still waters for miniature pests that can metamorphose into airborne vectors of disease. Acting like the Ghostbusters for mosquitoes, technicians seek out larvae and douse them with a spray of tiny bacteria called Bti — Bacillus thuringiensis israelenis. Bti is derived from naturally occurring soil bacteria and act as a larvicide that kills infantile mosquitoes before they can emerge from their watery breeding grounds.

Home again

Mexican immigrant who claimed sanctuary reflects on nine months living in a church basement

By Matt Cortina
The television cameras started to leave after the prayer circle disbanded. One by one — the camera guy with the tiny bulldog of a man reporting; the camera guy of the pretty young reporter with perfect hair; the camera guy who knocked over an elderly woman with a cane to get a shot — they packed up and left.

Are loopholes in policies putting ride-booking service drivers at risk?

By Angela K. Evans
The iconic pink mustaches of the Lyft brand ride-booking service are unmistakable. Whether it’s a large furry bumper-stache or a “glowstache” illuminating the night streets, the Lyft paraphernalia attracts users who have downloaded the company’s application as well as those in need of transportation who don’t have the app.

News Briefs

“It was a rather poorly run meeting,” says Dave Hallock, an Eldora resident and coordinator for the Middle Boulder Creek Coalition. “First of all, it was held up in Fort Collins, whereas most of the people involved in [the objection process] live in Boulder, Nederland, Eldora.

LETTERS

Another point of contention that occurred when I read Mr. Cortina’s article is with the paragraph which begins: “This is all beside the point that in the lease signed by Allen and all other Vista Village owners...” Mr. Cortina never asked me about my lease.

For whom the road tolls

By Paul Danish
Everyone in Boulder with access to a car, truck or bus has probably done it, and most have done it dozens of times. For many residents, the view from the top of Davidson Mesa was their first view of Boulder. It’s a picture in virtually everyone’s mental photo album.

Why a New Jersey puffer fish should not be president

By Jim Hightower
The Romneyites determined that the prima donna Christie was wholly unqualified to be vice president, but the rejection didn’t deflate Chris’ puffed-up self-esteem one dot.
