In case you missed it

So the Republican version of the U.S.S. Minnow is now headed out to sea on a three-hour tour with Cruz playing the role of the Skipper. Oddsmakers are betting that Donald Trump will be cast as Gilligan but who really knows with these guys. Can you say, “Nine! Nine! Nine!”?.

The magic of Kesem

CU Boulder students lead the second year of Camp Kesem, a summer program that supports children through a parent’s cancer

By Caitlin Rockett
When Al Visconti was diagnosed with synovial sarcoma in 2004, his son was only 4 weeks old. Intense chemotherapy followed, as well as debates about whether the affected leg would need to be amputated. Surgery saved the leg, but the chemo continued. For nine months, Vicsonti would come home from the doctor connected to a pump that delivered drugs for five days straight. He endured this every three weeks for the entire nine months.

By Matt Cortina
Forty-six years ago, a group of Denver high school students and Chicano supporters participated in a walkout. Some were beaten by police and arrested. They were protesting the fact that a history teacher was teaching them a washed-over, ethnocentric version of history.

news briefs

New rules released for hydraulic fracturing on public and tribal lands by the U.S. Department of the Interior called for increased transparency on chemicals used by posting them to the website FracFocus within 30 days of completing operations, “validation of well integrity and strong cement barriers between the wellbore and water zones through which the wellbore passes”; “higher standards for interim storage of recovered waste fluids from hydraulic fracturing to mitigate risks to air, water and wildlife”; and “measures to lower the risks of crosswell contamination with chemicals and fluids used in the fracturing operation.”

In case you missed it

It’s because you and your lazy coworkers are contributing to a $1.9 billion, with a “B,” loss in worker productivity. So when you suddenly see Tom jump from his cubicle screaming, “Yes,” just know that it’s not because he finally finished the spreadsheet he should have turned in two days ago.

BLACK IN BOULDER

Boulder racism through the eyes of people of color

By Matt Cortina
It’s the Boulder liberal attitude versus the KKK,” says Derrick Jones, a black professor at Naropa living in Boulder. He’s trying to decide what’s worse. “For me, I can respect to a degree someone who identifies as a member of the KKK and is out with their views. It’s a little easier to take in, digest and in some degree respect than to encounter racism denial, because I know what I’m getting. It’s a little harder to accept the racist activity or the perpetuation of a privilege structure from someone who claims to be colorblind or not racist or liberal.”

Happy Sunshine Week: Introducing The Foilies

By Dave Maass
Welcome once again to Sunshine Week! It’s that time of year when journalists, citizen watchdogs, community activists, data wizards, political gadflies, public-records litigators and open-gov fanatics come together to champion the cause of transparency and commiserate over the obstacles we face everyday while chasing sunlight.

In case you missed it

For progressives and any Democrat who views politics as something more important than a sport where winning trumps democracy, her press conference to answer questions on why she hid her Secretary of State emails from the public and government oversight should be the final straw.

Out of the shadows

Older LGBTQ adults lived most of their lives in the closet, but a Boulder County project leads the way in helping this community come into the light

By Caitlin Rockett
Gwen Goodwin was just shy of 53 when she decided it was time to come out of the closet — born in a man’s body, she says she could no longer live “the half and half life.” So she went to her boss at the Colorado Department of Human Services, expecting to be told to pack up and leave, but instead her confession was received with compassion.

Taking aim

County commissioners ban bow and arrow use in Sugarloaf community

By Matt Cortina
Is a bow and arrow a firearm? Yes, according to the Boulder County Commissioners, but only on Sugarloaf Mountain. The commissioners voted unanimously on Monday, March 9, to adopt a resolution that will ban the use of bows and arrows in a small community up on Sugarloaf Mountain. The resolution “clarifies” a 1980 resolution that established a firearms discharge district in the area that prohibited the use of firearms in the 4-and-a-halfsquare-mile area of private and public land in the area.
