Wanted: Fifty Boulder voters who think local government matters

By Joel Dyer
There is an election deadline rapidly approaching and the majority of potential city-council candidates for Boulder could use your help. At 5 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 24, any person running for a city council seat who doesn’t have 25 legal signatures on their “petition of nomination” gets punted to the curb and will not have their names on the ballot for this November’s election. No big deal, right? I mean, how hard can it be to walk around with a clipboard and get 25 registered voters — including friends, family and coworkers — to sign their name to your petition?

ISDS: A corporate cluster bomb to obliterate our sovereignty

By Jim Hightower
The Powers That Be are very unhappy with you and me. They’re also unhappy with senators like Elizabeth Warren, activist groups like Public Citizen, unions like the Communications Workers, and… well, with the majority of us Americans who oppose the establishment’s latest free trade scam.

Savage Love

By Dan Savage
I lost my dad young and I had a bunch of issues growing up. I’m probably gay, I love the idea of light bondage, and I’ve been this way for as long as I can remember. I feel like I’ve been on a self-discovery thing over the past year and have caught tidbits that bothered me.

An irreverent and not always accurate view of the world

They’re called “vending machines” and apparently you just press a button with letters and numbers on it — no, no, that’s not it. The real beverage robot goes into separate rooms, takes drink orders, and goes to a “bartender” robot that places the requested drink in a cooler.

Purge such possibilities from your mind. What the Great Balancing Act asks of you is to express what you stand for with great clarity. It invites you to free yourself, as much as you can, from worrying about what people think of you. It encourages you to be shaped less by the expectations of others and more by what you really want.

By Noel Phillips
When the stars of the tennis world battled it out on the courts of Wimbledon a few weeks ago, viewers not only be turned their heads left and right following the action on the court, but up and down as well, as gallons upon gallons of Pimm’s No. 1 Cups were thrown back in the stands and at home.

Cheers and clapping come from the road as two eager runners take off in a sprint in the 800-meter road challenge for Shoes and Brews in Longmont. As the two runners loop back and head to the finish line, with Longs Peak looming behind them, owners, bystanders and shoe shoppers are whistling and counting down their time, urging them to the finish line.

Experience it

This is not a review of Gold Hill Inn

By Matt Cortina
I cringe when the third course arrives at Gold Hill Inn. I cringe because I realize there’s no way to describe this unique experience without feeling gross and unqualified. You can’t review Gold Hill Inn in the same way you can’t review, say, a whale. You can’t review it because it is unique, earnest and wonderful in a way that cannot be put into words but can only be experienced.
