study sheds light on lafayette's existing multimodal conditions
most of lafayette's through streets are uncomfortable for cyclists to ride along due to the high-speed traffic and narrow buffers, according to a study examining the city's current multimodal conditions, which sheds light on some of the obstacles facing the city's far-reaching transit and pedestrian goals.the study, conducted over the last four months by stephanie ball, of the university of colorado's college of architecture and planning urban and regional graduate program, comes ahead of the city's future plans for a multimodal comprehensive design.such a plan typically includes a framework for widening arterials and creating safer passages for cyclists, as well as encouraging residents to utilize public transport more through the use of incentives and the creation of more park-n-rides and bus stops nearer to higher concentrations of residential areas.similar frameworks exist in westminster's mobility action plan and envision longmont multimodal and comprehensive plan, both created in 2016. boulder county created a similar transportation master plan in 2012.among some of the more notable conclusions: sidewalks along the city's main thoroughfares, including south boulder and west baseline roads are uncomfortable to walk on due to no buffers from fast-moving nearby cars.furthermore, most streets in lafayette are not `bicycle friendly,` according to the study.`the biggest issue i see is especially around 95th street,` zach sharp, the owner of domestique mobile bike s...

bald eagle found shot dead east of milton reservoir in weld county
the bald eagle found shot dead may 10 about a mile east of milton reservoir in weld county. (colorado parks and wildlife)a state agency is seeking more information about a bald eagle that was found shot dead on may 10 about a mile east of milton reservoir in weld county.a landowner reported seeing a bald eagle perched on the ground in his pasture south of his residence near the reservoir on may 9, according to a news release from colorado parks and wildlife. the next morning, the landowner found the eagle dead in the same location.bald eagles are protected federally under the u.s. fish and wildlife service bald and golden eagle protection act, as well as state statute. colorado parks and wildlife officers retrieved the eagle and submitted it to the health lab for analysis, according to the news release. a necropsy conducted on may 15 found that the eagle had suffered a gunshot wound across the lower abdomen. the agency doesn't believe the gunshot wound immediately caused the death, but internal hemorrhages along with severe tissue damage likely caused the death within 24 to 48 hours of the bird being shot. colorado parks and wildlife is asking members of the public who may have information about the incident to contact its fort collins service center at 970-472-4300. madeline st. amour: 303-684-5212, [email protected]

longmont father fires shot at person after hearing someone outside daughter's room
(matthew jonas / staff photographer)longmont police are investigating an incident that involved a man firing a shot at an unknown person in his yard sunday night.a 49-year-old man who lives in the 2700 block of denver avenue told police he heard someone outside his 17-year-old daughter's room at 9:40 p.m., according to longmont police cmdr. joel post. unsure of who it was, the man armed himself with a handgun and went outside to confront the person in the yard. the man described the suspect in the yard as between 20 and 30 years old and about 6-feet 1-inch tall with a medium build, post said. the man thought he saw the person — who he did not know — holding something in his hand, so he fired a round from his handgun, post said. the suspect fled the yard by climbing over a fence. police were not able to determine where the bullet went, post said, though he added that there was no report or information that led them to believe the suspect was injured or any property was damaged by the shot. according to post, `the potential is there` for charges to be filed against the father for firing the shot. while colorado has a make my day law, state statute says that deadly force can only be used if the person has reasonable grounds to believe that he or she is in imminent danger, or the other person appears about to use force. the case is still under investigation. police are not yet identifying the people involved. madeline st. amour: 303-684-5212, [email protected]

gary barnett couldn't believe it at first. can you blame him?barnett, the last football coach to lead the colorado buffaloes to a conference title in 2001, was in his third season overhauling northwestern's program in november 1994 when rumor spread from player, to athletic trainer, to graduate assistant, to assistant coach and to barnett that senior running back dennis lundy made an illegal cash wager on his own team losing big.the allegation surfaced after lundy, then northwestern's career-leading rusher, had fumbled on the iowa 1-yard line in a 36-point defeat. might lundy have intentionally let go to ensure northwestern wouldn't cover the spread? barnett needed proof. so he called lundy into his office the following monday.“what do you have to say?” barnett asked.“it's true,” lundy replied.barnett was speechless.“all i could see was three letters go across my eyes - fbi,” he said.advertisementdaily camera filegary barnett.as far back as 1919, when the white sox fixed the world series, and as recently as 2011, when several university of san diego basketball players were convicted of points shaving, the cross section of college sports and gambling has left black marks on the game's integrity. it's why the ncaa had long pushed against gambling of any kind on its events. now, the ncaa has no choice but to embrace it.the supreme court's 6-3 decision to strike down federal law prohibiting sports gambling outside nevada brings to light the challenging enforce...

boulder county careconnect changes name to cultivate
boulder county careconnect has undergone its second name change in the nonprofit's 46-year history in order to clear up confusion. the organization is now simply cultivate.`we definitely have our practical reasons and then we have our philosophical reasons,` cultivate executive director chrysti r. britt said. `one of our practical reasons is that for a long time, so many people thought we were part of the government and there was a lot of confusion, plus it's hard to say and hard to abbreviate.`cultivate started in 1972 as rsvp, the local service provider for a federal program that matches volunteers 55 years old and older with nearby volunteer opportunities. while the organization still receives federal and local funding from boulder county to operate the program, it is not part of the government.ruby zavala, a program coordinator with cultivate, shops for food for homebound seniors at the king soopers on table mesa drive in boulder on thursday.

ed engle: the people's fish
ed engle great outdoors i got to memphis a day early on my way to speak to the mid-south fly fishers club. the early arrival wasn't exactly by design; it's just the way the airline reservation worked out. it didn't bother me at all, because i'd never been to memphis and rather than tour graceland or some other local tourist trap juan kindelan, the club president, suggested we fish a privately owned lake that he had access to. i was travelling light, but juan said that was no problem because he had plenty of fly rods, poppers and anything else we'd need to pursue the bream and bass contained in the lake. if you're not from the south, you may not be familiar with the word `bream`. in tennessee, panfish such as this bluegill are often called bream. note the sharp, spiny dorsal fin. (ed engle / courtesy photo)the american heritage dictionary gives a first definition of bream as `any of several european freshwater fishes of the genus abramis.` it goes on to describe these fish as having a flattened body and silvery scales. it doesn't take long to realize that this isn't the fish they're talking about in tennessee and other parts of the south. you need to go all the way down to the last definition to find bream defined as `any one of various freshwater sunfishes of the genus lepomis and related genera, such as the bluegill.`that's a little more like it.i grew up in virginia, and i heard the term bream once in a while pronounced `brim,` but not in my family. my fol...

boulder county experts say new medication could ease detox, but treatment mix still needed
the u.s. food and drug administration approved the first nonopioid treatment for use in managing opioid withdrawal symptoms in adults on wednesday. while the new drug, lucemyra, can't treat withdrawal long-term, it could ease the effects of the acute symptoms that appear in the first few weeks. this could make people more likely to stay in detox, according to ann noonan, director of sud center of excellence at mental health partners, a nonprofit community mental health center in boulder.`one of the things that we know is clients that have opiate dependence fear withdrawal more than they fear relapse,` noonan said. lucemyra, also called lofexidine, was first developed as an antihypertensive drug to treat high blood pressure, but researchers discovered that it could also treat some of the withdrawal symptoms because it affects a neurotransmitter believed to cause a number of withdrawal symptoms, according to robert valuck, a professor at the university of colorado skaggs school of pharmacy and pharmaceutical sciences.the fda has approved it for use in adults for up to the first two weeks of treatment, which is typically when people experience acute withdrawal symptoms.advertisementaccording to valuck, most people describe it as being like a really bad case of the flu -- dozens of times worse than the worst flu you've ever had. withdrawal can cause runny nose, anxiety, difficulty sleeping, muscle aches, sweating, vomiting and headaches. people also lose control of their gast...

how the death of voicemail is changing the way we connect
varun bhansali, 32, a digital marketer in san jose, calif., rarely leaves voicemails or makes phone calls except for work. (dai sugano / san jose mercury news)don't wait for the beep: voicemail is going the way of the dinosaurs.although phone-message technology advanced steadily from cassette recorders attached to landlines to services offered by phone companies to cloud-based message storage for mobile devices, it's now running up against a changing american society that places increasing value on saving every possible moment of time.with the prevalence of mobile phones, texting, chat apps and email, voicemail just isn't as what it used to be.`let's say i get a phone call from my brother,` said nora lara, a 50-year-old employee at santa clara county superior court, who is no fan of voicemail and prefers texting to talking on the phone. `i'll ignore it. and then he'll text me. when people leave me voice messages, i just delete them without even checking. if they want to get hold of me, they can text me.`roman basinschi, a 26-year-old software engineer, never uses voicemail. `i don't think it's even set up,` he said. occasionally he'll leave a voicemail — but only for older people and only in more formal situations.lara and basinchi illustrate a profound and widespread change, one that is re-shaping personal and professional communications and creating a whole new set of rules for how to connect. voicemail is now viewed as inefficient. and for many, that feeli...

pro-second amendment activists rally in longmont
pro-second amendment demonstrators crowded around four corners of the intersection at hover street and nelson road in longmont on saturday, a continuation of numerous gatherings organized by the online community `rally for our rights.`activists carried pro-gun placards and waived american flags and the yellow `don't tread on me` gadsden flags which have become associated with libertarians and supporters of gun rights. `not everyone agrees with the anti-gun sentiment that's taken over the nation,` organizer lesley hollywood of johnstown said. `criminals are the problem, not law abiding citizens.` many of the demonstrators were carrying firearms, including ar-15 style semiautomatic rifles. longmont deputy police chief jeff satur said that police had received some calls from people concerned about the weapons, but police hadn't taken any action because it is legal — with exceptions for city buildings and some parks — to open carry in longmont, as long as it's not done in a threatening manner. `sometimes these people carry in a way that causes alarm,` satur said. `i'm not sure they are doing any favors to their cause doing that. people have a right to carry, but you have to think about your presentation.` advertisementnumerous demonstrations associated with rally for our rights have taken place in larimer and boulder counties, including one last month ahead of a planed vote by the boulder city council to ban certain semi-automatic weapons deemed to be `assau...

study sheds light on lafayette's existing multimodal conditions
most of lafayette's through streets are uncomfortable for cyclists to ride along due to the high-speed traffic and narrow buffers, according to a study examining the city's current multimodal conditions, which sheds light on some of the obstacles facing the city's far-reaching transit and pedestrian goals.the study, conducted over the last four months by stephanie ball, of the university of colorado's college of architecture and planning urban and regional graduate program, comes ahead of the city's future plans for a multimodal comprehensive design.such a plan typically includes a framework for widening arterials and creating safer passages for cyclists, as well as encouraging residents to utilize public transport more through the use of incentives and the creation of more park-n-rides and bus stops nearer to higher concentrations of residential areas.similar frameworks exist in westminster's mobility action plan and envision longmont multimodal and comprehensive plan, both created in 2016. boulder county created a similar transportation master plan in 2012.among some of the more notable conclusions: sidewalks along the city's main thoroughfares, including south boulder and west baseline roads are uncomfortable to walk on due to no buffers from fast-moving nearby cars.furthermore, most streets in lafayette are not `bicycle friendly,` according to the study. `the biggest issue i see is especially around 95th street,` zach sharp, the owner of domestique mobile bike ...

lafayette seniors living in memory care unit take carousel ride in nederland
a diminutive woman, an octogenarian at least, perched atop a handcarved cheetah as nederland's carousel of happiness took a counterclockwise spin on friday afternoon, her cataract-clouded eyes open wide and a sly grin gracing her face. once the vintage piece of machinery slowed to a standstill and the ragtime music from the wurlitzer band organ subsided, karen klauss posed the question:`wilma, do you want to go again?`wilma slapped her hands on the cheetah, then paused for several beats. `yeah, i want to go again.` klauss, vibrant life director at the peaks at old laramie trail, brought about 10 residents from the lafayette nursing home's memory care unit to nederland's famed dollar-a-ride carousel as a field trip of sorts on friday afternoon. the residents are all in various stages of dementia, and although they generally take a scenic drive on fridays up boulder canyon or north to longmont (and perhaps stop for ice cream), friday's stop in nederland was a special occasion. klauss said many of the residents wouldn't remember the two rides on the carousel by the time they climbed back into the bus for the ride home. but none of that mattered. `right now, we are experiencing so much joy just being in the moment,` said klauss, adding that experiences such as the carousel ride have a therapeutic benefit for residents.`we are all people and this is the situation they are in,` she said. `we want to make their lives the best we can.` advertisementcarousel operator ta...
