Two decades of digging through the dookie

By Boulder Weekly Staff
The Boulder-based pharmaceutical plant Syntex Chemicals ranked among the worst polluters in the state in 1994. The company confessed to the Environmental Protection Agency in 1988 that it had discovered groundwater contamination below the plant in 1986.

BW Editor reexamines 20 years of coverage

By Joel Dyer
Many of the issues that we were reporting on 20 years ago are still hot topics today. I’m not sure exactly what this means other than to say that we are apparently better at talking about and studying problems than we are at actually fixing them.

BW Publisher travels back in time to talk to himself

An interview with Boulder Weekly founder Stewart Sallo

By Stewart Sallo
It sounds trite to say, but it’s astonishing how fast 20 years can fly by. And while we’re issuing platitudes, never has it been truer for me that time flies while you’re having fun.

BW’s first editor reflects on past two decades

By Leland Rucker
We set up shop on the Pearl Street Mall, and I hired Kathy Kaiser as managing editor almost immediately. We had each worked at the daily papers and knew there were plenty of local stories beyond what they were offering, and the chance to do in-depth features and lots of entertainment coverage that focused exclusively on Boulder was really exciting.

An angry letter to Paul Danish mad Lib

By Josh Gross
We took a general cross-section of letters we have received regarding Danish over the years and boiled them down to a general structure that non-writers can easily use to voice their disapproval with whatever Danish may say. Just fill in the blank fields.

I am writing to applaud you on your success in filling a void in the Boulder and Denver metro areas for a high-quality weekly publication. It’s refreshing to finally see a publication that clearly is striving for journalistic excellence in its writing, advertisements and editorial focus.

What 20 years of Boulder Weekly has meant to me

By Joel Dyer
I remember the founding editor selling me on the working for Boulder Weekly by explaining that we’d have some good fun before the whole thing went out of business, which we both suspected would only be a matter of months, tops. We were right about the fun. But boy were we wrong about the longevity.
