boulder county based nonproft guys who give expanding fraternity of charity
a men's nonprofit group has expanded in the last three years to cover more of colorado and sprouted two groups in other states.justin livingston, of superior, f ounded guys who give's first chapter in boulder county in may 2015. he was inspired by another similar group, women who care.the concept of both is simple: gather a group of people who meet once a quarter in a casual setting like a brewery. each person gives $100 per quarter and votes on which local nonprofit organization should get the money. livingston acknowledged the model is not exactly revolutionary. indeed, the longmont community foundation administers several giving circles that work the same way.but something in the guys who give formula has proven to be contagious — there are now chapters in adams county, broomfield county, denver county, kalamazoo, mich. and asheville, n.c. livingston said he started the group because he was looking for a way to stay involved in the community when his free time seemed occupied with his family and career.`life changes as we grow and time becomes more and more of a commodity. i used to volunteer at a soup kitchen and at church, i was involved in a mission trip to haiti and i was finding that there wasn't the hours to do that and finding ways to plug in,` livingston said. `it was this premise of guys who give — guys can come for 45 minutes a quarter and give $100 and be part of something that's a massive impact.`advertisementthe quarterly meetings kick off at 6 p.m...

cu boulder opens exhibit exploring relationship between science, art
a new exhibit at the university of colorado illustrates how art and science can be intertwined.the exhibit opened friday and was organized by faculty, staff and students through cu's nature, environment, science and technology studio for the arts. the exhibit and the broader studio program are funded by a grand challenge grant, which originated during the obama administration. `we proposed to the university that it would be a great idea to have more overt collaboration between artists and scientists and that there should be a physical hub for that kind of collaboration to happen and also an umbrella organization that could help facilitate those kinds of collaborations that were already in progress,` said erin espelie, the co-director of the studio and an assistant professor. the exhibit fills a wing of the newly opened center for academic success and engagement, and the pieces take many forms — glass plates, sculptures, drawings, virtual reality. many were funded by the grant and created by graduate student pairs of scientists and artists.`everyone likes the idea of inter-disciplinary, but it can be very hard to fund and very hard to implement,` said tara knight, the co-director of the studio and an associate professor. `this is an opportunity to have these encounters here on campus.` art and science have similar processes in that they involve trying and failing at new ideas and trying again, she said.`it's really all about that iterative process of creation, and t...

three years after fire, cider flows again at home near longmont
on a sunny first day of fall, among towers of ripened apples and rusty machines, the jordan family held their first apple cider pressing since their barn — and much of their livelihood — was destroyed in a fire three years ago. a couple dozen friends, family members, and people from all around boulder and weld counties came out on saturday to celebrate the momentous occasion. everyone was encouraged to bring their own apples and contribute, and community fruit rescue, an organization that collects extra fruit around boulder, weighed in with around 900 pounds.the event is a tradition that steven jordan and his brother greg jordan have been enjoying at steven and michelle jordan's home just east of county line road since the mid 1970's, ever since the two teamed up to create their own apple cider press. they even melted down their own brass in a makeshift foundry to make one of the parts.`we figured, hell, they did this in the bronze age, we should be able to do it today,` greg jordan said.their equipment has changed a lot since then, though, and now they make use of a hydraulic press to squeeze the ground up apple mash into cider. advertisementwhen the fire happened, much of their old equipment was lost in the blaze. `the grinder was lost, our press cloths were gone, the buckets luckily were in a storage tank, but our main milk tank got fried,` steven jordan said. throughout the day, much of the activity happened on a concrete slab that once made up their old barn's...

it started off as a class project and, truthfully, jalen tompkins wasn't initially sold on the idea.tompkins was tasked in a psychology class last spring with picking a community she cares about and researching a mental illness that impacts that community. tompkins' professor suggested that she focus on mental health in sports.`is it really that big of a deal?,` she thought.tompkins soon discovered that it is a much bigger deal than most people realize, and now the university of colorado senior — who is one of the best women's soccer goalkeepers in the pac-12 conference — is doing her part to spread the word.colorado goalkeeper jalen tompkins helped form the bolder buffs peer advocacy program which brings mental health awareness to college sports. (cliff grassmick / staff photographer)this fall, led by tompkins and women's basketball standout kennedy leonard, the bolder buffs peer advocacy program has been formed. it's one of many efforts being made by the cu athletic department — and the school in general — to bring awareness to mental health.cu is dedicating friday's football game against ucla to mental health awareness.out of the shadowsfor years, mental illness, especially in athletics, had been brushed aside and looked down upon, but that is changing.recently, high profile athletes, including olympic swimmer michael phelps, women's tennis legend serena williams and nba star kevin love, have publicly discussed their struggles with mental illness.advertise...

longmont police report fewer homeless, point to community programs
nearly one year since the start of boulder county's coordinated entry system and two months since the full implementation of new police programs, longmont police are optimistic that the strategy change is working.both the lead (law enforcement assisted diversion) and core (crisis, outreach, response and engagement) programs, which work to link those experiencing homelessness, addiction or mental health issues with case managers, are now fully staffed. the police-run angel initiative, which connects those with substance abuse disorders with treatment options and other services, has helped nearly 130 people. at least half of those people were homeless when they started, according to longmont police deputy chief jeff satur.satur said they have learned that the criminal justice system isn't equipped to solve these issues.`it's not really effective for a person that has no money, that has no home, that has no work,` he said. instead, satur said police are `trying to treat people with dignity, we're trying to connect them with services, we're trying to connect them with mentors.`more time, more arrestsaccording to longmont police cmdr. eric hulett, patrol officers are now spending more time talking with people on the street and evaluating them to see if they could benefit from a service, like substance abuse services.the city has also spent less this year on cleaning up homeless encampments. it has cost longmont around $8,000 through june, whereas the total last year was n...

cu expanding program to identify students at risk of failing classes
a university of colorado pilot program, designed to identify underclassmen who are struggling in their classes and connect them with resources, is expanding. the first stage of the pilot launched last fall, and the program has expanded each semester since. in its latest iteration, instructors teaching mostly freshman- and sophomore-level classes this semester in the colleges of engineering and applied science and arts and sciences, as well as the program in environmental design, will be asked to provide information about their students' performances to help identify those who are at risk of failing. at the eight-week mark, which is halfway through the semester and two weeks before the deadline to withdraw from a course, participating instructors will answer three questions about each student on their roster. they will be asked to mark students who they deem at-risk based on a set of criteria, including a grade below a low c or a large number of missed assignments. they'll also be asked to mark students who have an excessive number of absences and will be provided an open comment section to provide other information about the situations. students with one or two course alerts will receive a message asking them to contact their instructors and advisers and providing them with a list of available resources, such as tutoring. students with three or four course alerts will receive more personalized coaching.advertisementthe program started in the college of engineering and appli...

cu boulder researcher leads study highlighting ice cap's instability
the stability of ice caps at earth's high latitudes is being highlighted in research led by a scientist at the university of colorado, which shows greatly accelerated movement at the vavilov ice cap in the russian high arctic region.mike willis, an assistant professor in geology at the university of colorado and a fellow at the cooperative institute for research in environmental sciences, spearheaded research that showed the vavilov ice cap sliding as much as 82 feet a day in 2015, which shatters the ice's previous speed of about 2 inches per day.`in a warming climate, glacier acceleration is becoming more and more common, but the rate of ice loss at vavilov is extreme and unexpected,` willis said in a statement.and in an interview, he said, `what's different is, it never used to be this way. it's not something that has displayed this behavior. all of a sudden, in a couple of years, it is vomiting ice into the ocean.`the rapid collapse of the vavilov ice cap, according to the multi-national, multi-institute study, `massive destabilization of an arctic ice cap,` holds potential significance for the future of glaciers in other polar regions, particularly those of antarctica and greenland.`i'm perplexed, with some anxiety,` willis said. `i'm perplexed because we don't fully understand it, and i'm anxious because there are lots of other ice caps like this, and we're not looking at them very much.advertisement`this type of ice cap is supposed to be boring. it's...

boulder county commissioners impose niwot development moratorium
boulder county commissioners on thursday adopted a temporary moratorium on accepting, processing or approving any new applications for developments or redevelopments in a commercial district in the unincorporated town of niwot.commissioners elise jones and cindy domenico voted to impose the moratorium pending amendments to land use code provisions. commissioner deb gardner was absent.the moratorium follows a land use department determination that existing code provisions `are not adequate to provide the necessary direction in reviewing development projects` in the niwot rural community district according to a news release.the commercial part of the niwot rural community district lies on either side of second avenue, running from the block alongside martin street on the northwest to niwot road on the southeast.community members have raised concerns about `the density and design parameters` in the land use code for reviewing development applications within the district, county officials said.regulations concerning the niwot rural community district were adopted in 1993 and got their last substantial updates nine years ago, `prior to various changes in development patterns, community needs, and population growth,` officials stated in the news release.advertisementnicole wobus, the land use department's long range planning manager, said thursday that the staff request for the moratorium was not prompted by any specific development applications.however, boulder county has g...

longmont food rescue seeks to give overlooked produce a second life on a dinner plate
in less than a year and a half, longmont food rescue has collected about 22,000 pounds of food that otherwise would have been trashed.the executive director of the small nonprofit, kelly mahoney, also won the first sustainability leader award from sustainable resilient longmont.mahoney started longmont food rescue after she saw the impact that boulder food rescue has on local nonprofits, such as the boulder shelter for the homeless, where she volunteered in the kitchen.`boulder food rescue has really been an avenue for people to see their own way through food insecurity and to help folks navigate situations they might find themselves in,` mahoney said. `i knew it needed to come to longmont because we have food waste here.`mahoney said grocery stores often order more than they can sell and can have between 300 and 400 pounds of food waste per day, mostly in produce but sometimes other products, such as bread.`sometimes the produce might have a bruise on it or it's ugly and they don't want to put it on their shelves because they have a quality they have to meet for customers,` she said. `it doesn't mean that it's lacking in nutrition or health qualities. all of it is healthy and nutritious and still edible.`advertisementthe key to local food rescues is that the organization doesn't store or warehouse the food. volunteers pick up the food from a donor and transport it (oftentimes by bike) directly to the recipient, whether that's longmont meals on wheels or a an ap...
