Faces of Boulder – Pic of the Day!

December 1st, 2021

Wandering into the children’s wing of the Boulder Public Library, my attention was unexpectedly grabbed by the sound of silly songs and laughter from the back of the otherwise quiet room. As I made my way through the colorful, book lined aisles seeking the source, I found Melanie finishing up a planning session for an upcoming children’s story time. Meet Melanie! This cheery 15 year Boulder resident is the Youth Services Specialist there at the library. Originally from Ogden, Utah, she came to Boulder seeking a more progressive atmosphere but wanting to stay within the charm of the Rocky... Read More

  Meet Lia! Lia is a junior as CU Boulder and is studying international business. She has a strong love of traveling and has already been to 41 countries and has lived in Ghana and Indonesia.

November 18th, 2021

Kay is originally from Milan, Italy and moved to the Boulder in 2006. Before coming to Boulder, she lived in Pennsylvania, California, St. Louis and many other places. She was adopted, which was what prompted her move to the U.S., but, “if I wasn’t adopted I would want to come to America to experience the different cultures and people. It’s a place people come to thrive and succeed and that would be why I would want to come here.” She occasionally goes back to Italy because a lot of her family still resides there. She says Pearl Street is lit and believes that the people... Read More

Meet Elizabeth! She was volunteering at the Boulder Creek Fest encouraging kids to sign up for reading camps this summer. “Reading is important to me because it opens a world that you can’t explore anywhere else.

An Ebio major by day, slam dunk champion by night. Meet Mak, my neighbor and current SlamJampalooza winner. Mak moved to Colorado from Alaska to attend CU Boulder and hone his mini-hoop skills. Every opportunity he gets, Mak travels around the world to scuba dive and fish. If you were to ask Mak how he would describe himself, he would say he’s a mix between Shaq and Aquaman. An opportunist by nature, there is no doubt Mak helps make Boulder the intriguing place we can all call home. Thanks Makane!  Read More

“I drive around neighborhoods find children who want ice cream. I don’t take tips, but some people really insist on it, so I keep it separate because there are usually kids that come up that don’t have money, or can’t afford what they want, so I just use that money for them.” – Terry  Read More

“Running clears my head and is a great way for me to relieve stress. I try to get out every day for either physical or mental reasons. I love it because it gives me a freedom unlike anything else. I can zone out completely or focus on certain issues and work it out in my head. Most importantly, beer tastes that much better after a solid run.” Thanks for the insight Josh!  Read More

CU’s Ice History

November 2nd, 2021

In the news yesterday, a UK based research team reported that a massive iceberg weighing more than one trillion tons broke off from western Antarctica. It is bigger than the state of Delaware, and surprisingly (and thankfully) scientists do not believe it will impact sea levels or coastal regions. The ice shelf was already floating before it broke off and therefore there will be no water displacement or sea level rise. Recently, students and professors at the University of Colorado, Boulder have been studying the effects of black carbon on ice and snow in ecosystems around the world. Black carbon... Read More

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!

October 22nd, 2021

Last weekend was Earth Day, and Boulder citizens made their zeal for the environment and sustainability known with hikes and conferences downtown, kid’s activities in the park, and films at the Fiske Planetarium at the University of Colorado. Boulder is an exceptionally environmentally conscious town and I thought it would be interesting to look at the history of Earth day and what Boulder citizens have done to help and protect the environment. The first Earth Day occurred in 1970, and was started by then Senator of Wisconsin, Gaylord Nelson. After seeing a massive oil spill in Santa Barbara... Read More

Sophia is an 8-year-old harpist and by far one of the youngest performers on the Pearl Street Mall.  Sophia’s been studying the harp with local music teacher Margot Krimmel after getting the harp as a Christmas present last winter.  Sophia’s father, Alexander told me he had a sense she would be musically inclined and after showing her a picture of a harp, her decision was made.  Make sure to drop a dollar in Sophia’s basket if you see her performing, she’s saving up for her new pedal harp!  Read More
