An irreverent and not always accurate view of the world

First, Dr. Walter J. Palmer, the dentist in question, along with his hired guides, lured the old cat off its protected preserve. Next they shot the poor beast with a crossbow and then had to track the blood trail for 40 minutes after which they finished off Cecil the old fashion way with a bullet.

Insufficient data

Critics say Council voted before they had information necessary to evaluate rightsizing experiment

By Caitlin Rockett
Boulder’s first of three “rightsizing” pilot projects has rubbed many Boulder residents the wrong way — so wrong, in fact, that on July 28, City Council decided not to move forward with the next two pilot projects as soon as initially planned. The first project — reducing the number of car lanes and widening bike lanes on Folsom Street between Arapahoe Avenue and Valmont Road — has elicited significant public outcry. Many citizens claim City Council didn’t have adequate data to proceed with the project, which critics say has turned the corridor into a parking lot.

Raise the gate?

City officials talk about pricing policies

By Angela K. Evans
Cowles wants the City Council to look at how city parking policies align with city goals, which include reducing traffic, carbon emissions and congestion, as well as generating revenue. He says he raises the issue because of long waiting lists for parking permits in city facilities and the price difference between public and private parking garages.

(IN CASE YOU MISSED IT)

An irreverent and not always accurate view of the world

On the heels of the debut of their right-sizing program, where a handful of two-lane roads throughout the city were reduced to one lane roads with a shared turn lane for cars and big bike lanes for cyclists, the City on Saturday tried out their new commuting program: right-tubing.

Home again

Mexican immigrant who claimed sanctuary reflects on nine months living in a church basement

By Matt Cortina
The television cameras started to leave after the prayer circle disbanded. One by one — the camera guy with the tiny bulldog of a man reporting; the camera guy of the pretty young reporter with perfect hair; the camera guy who knocked over an elderly woman with a cane to get a shot — they packed up and left.

Are loopholes in policies putting ride-booking service drivers at risk?

By Angela K. Evans
The iconic pink mustaches of the Lyft brand ride-booking service are unmistakable. Whether it’s a large furry bumper-stache or a “glowstache” illuminating the night streets, the Lyft paraphernalia attracts users who have downloaded the company’s application as well as those in need of transportation who don’t have the app.

By Angela K. Evans
Sandra Goodwin, a private landowner from Boulder, Wyoming, has personally seen the effects of oil and gas development on greater sage-grouse populations near her home. When a gravel mine began hauling an average of 350 semi-truck loads a day on the county road in front of her house, she stopped seeing the birds on her property.
