Mind the gap

Women’s cycling is growing, but the pay gap is still vast

By Caitlin Rockett
And Americans stayed tuned in when news rolled out that the women were awarded $2 million for their win. That’s not so bad until you compare it to the $35 million the German men’s team was awarded after their World Cup victory in 2014. And just to drive the point home: the U.

Collaboration at its finest

‘FRESH’ exhibit pairs Boulder County artists and farmers

By Angela K. Evans
“In some ways people that are in local agriculture don’t realize all the stuff going on in local arts or vice versa.

Holding court

Longmont, Fort Collins fracking lawsuits likely headed to Colorado Supreme Court

By Matt Cortina
In a rare move on Monday, Aug. 17, the Colorado Court of Appeals recommended that the state Supreme Court undertake lawsuits challenging Longmont’s fracking ban and Fort Collins’ fracking moratorium.

LETTERS

I wonder if businesses along Folsom may see reduced receipts over the next few months. If they do, perhaps they should seek out their city council to request compensation.

This isn’t because they are political geniuses. It’s because the genius of the Constitution is that it created a government that doesn’t need a genius to run it.
