Bear Breaks into Car, Butt-Shifts Vehicle and Drives Downhill in Boulder County

July 6th, 2019

By: Óscar Contreras BOULDER COUNTY, Colo. – A “delinquent bear” had a bit of fun in Boulder County this 4th of July, and it didn’t involve fireworks. The Boulder County Sheriff’s Office said a bear pulled open an unlocked driver’s doors and climbed in.

Thanks to technology, cannabis is safer than ever

November 25th, 2018

When the Europeans first arrived in the Americas in the late 15th century, they were apparently baffled by the act of smoking, which was regular among the indigenous peoples there, but a completely alien concept to the West. Smoking in the Americas dates back as far as 5,000 BC, with tobacco an important substance in the spiritual rituals conducted by shamans.  The Europeans soon became fascinated by smoking, and tobacco smoking soon became a popular recreational habit, which set the tone for the health problems that it would later cause around the world – prior to that time, smoking was primarily... Read More

Many women, who neglect annual OBGYN visits and/or don’t seek help when they don’t feel themselves, won’t be diagnosed until the cancer has spread substantially. Many times the symptoms will be mild or non-specific, making it difficult to tell there is something wrong. That being said, ovarian cancer is one of the most... Read More

The Mainline Alehouse Stands Out Above The Crowd

July 5th, 2018
The Mainline Ale House

Disclaimer: Mainline Alehouse plans to be closing soon The Mainline Alehouse occupies space in Old Town, Fort Collins nestled between two other restaurants, but it holds its own. The inside of The Mainline is a mix a modern clean design with touches of a woodsy/outdoor essence. The tree-like structures lined throughout the restaurants are eye catching. More importantly the Mainline served as the last place I would cover for, a last meal if you will. I ordered a shandy from the multi-page list of beers on tap, from Left Hand Brewery, called Peach Beerllini Randler. I love Left... Read More
