in case you missed it | Camera whiplash

On Dec. 18, the day before the Boulder County commissioners were to announce their decision regarding the planting of GMO crops on county open space lands, the Camera decided to give them plenty of political cover by endorsing the use of these frankencrops on our open space.

in case you missed it | Some of the less-than famous souls who passed in 2011 without ample fanfare

Hazel Jane Dickens (June 1, 1935 – April 22, 2011) was an American bluegrass singer, songwriter, double bassist and guitarist. Her music was characterized not only by her high, lonesome singing style, but also by her provocative pro-union, feminist songs.

in case you missed it | The guy behind the protester

TIME magazine’s person of the year for 2011 was not a person at all but rather an entire grouping of people the magazine referred to collectively as “the protester.” The idea is that from Egypt to Libya to Wall Street to Boulder, protesters have had and are having a significant impact on the world.

in case you missed it | Support the homeless! (Just not here)

The Boulder Homeless Shelter’s Housing First program taps into federal dollars to provide housing to the chronically homeless. The idea is that by getting transients off the street, you give them the stability they need to drag themselves out of their ruts and better their lives. In theory, it’s an easy idea to support, but one of the problems officials run into is finding landlords who are willing to take tenants with such checkered pasts and unstable futures.

in case you missed it | Drugs, driving and Denver

We were just tickled pink to see that the Daily Beast and Newsweek recently named CU-Boulder the druggiest school in America. Hey, it’s better than number one party school, right?

in case you missed it | Safety whizzin’

For those of you who have recently been exposed to Santa and/or his reindeer delivering a not-so-catchy anti-drunk-driving slogan from a poster plastered above the pisser in your favorite watering hole, there is an explanation for the odd nature of the ramblings.

in case you missed it | Racial pissing match

There’s a political war raging over Colorado’s 6th Congressional District. What makes this battle interesting isn’t the warring factions of Democrats and Republicans (snooze), but rather their weapon of choice, Hispanic people. No kidding.

In Case You Missed It | Bullying in the name of God

Two weeks ago, Michigan’s Republican-dominated Senate inserted language at the last minute into an anti-bullying bill that exempted bullies motivated by “a sincerely held religious belief or moral conviction.”

in case you missed it | Put GMOs on 2012 ballot

Obviously, the issue is highly charged, and highly charged issues make politicians nervous. A vote of the people is one way to be certain exactly how Boulder County feels about GMOs — and might be the only way to see the majority’s will enacted on county land.

In Case You Missed It | Don’t whine if you didn’t vote

Some of the election outcomes this week were decided by very small margins. For instance, we went to bed thinking that one of Boulder’s municipalization measures, 2B, was going to be narrowly defeated. When we woke up, it had passed by a margin of only 141 votes. And up in Longmont, Dennis Coombs unseated incumbent Bryan Baum to become mayor by only 164 votes.
