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.”

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.

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.”

By Elizabeth Miller

The state bill that would have rolled back Colorado’s renewable energy standards to half of their proposed levels was co-sponsored by legislators who have been linked to the fossil fuel-funded American Legislative Exchange Council. The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) describes itself as “the nation’s largest nonpartisan, voluntary membership organization of state legislators. The organization advances limited government, free markets and federalism,” in a letter to Google Chairman Eric Schmidt written in response to his comments on the company’s choice in September to part ways with the organization.

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.
