  • Osmosis wins award for redesign project

    Deborah Cameron|Nov 23, 2022

    The mid-20th century modern, bi-level home is a classic design found around the country and in many Boulder County neighborhoods.

  • November book review: Cloudbreak, California

    Hannah Stewart|Nov 23, 2022

    I don't read memoirs very often, which is a shame because they are so unique and interesting. That's certainly the case with Kelly Daniels' book Cloudbreak, California. What is perhaps most unique about it is the way it's organized. There's a sense of chronological order--the first chapter begins with Daniels reflecting on his childhood--but as the story progresses, we revisit the past alongside him. For example, there's this excellent part where Daniels is describing a sojourn into a...

It was a stunning victory for Bernett, but her victory was overshadowed by the filing of criminal charges against her related to whether or not she resided in the legislative district she was elected to represent. The Boulder District Attorney’s...
