Increase in Bear Activity

During the past week, a number of area residents have reported bear sightings and encounters to county and state wildlife officials. Last week five bears were relocated from Boulder by Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW). Urban bear activity typically increases in late August as bears enter the stage of hyperphagia, a period of excessive eating to fatten for hibernation. Officials expect an increase in activity this fall because of a food shortage in natural areas.

What does a Larimer County Commissioner Do?

By: Larimer County Commissioner Lew Gaiter III

We frequently get asked “What does a county commissioner do anyway?”

One of the great privileges of being a local elected official is the incredible diversity of opportunities and responsibility. Larimer County Commissioners work both inside and outside our 8 incorporated municipalities to address the needs of the citizens here in Larimer County.

In 2015, up until August 1, there had been 204 people killed in mass gunfire shootings (three or more people killed in one shooting) here in the United States. If that average continues, we may expect that about 360 people will die from mass gunfire shootings by year’s end. Or, on a local scale, about 90% of the Lyons Middle/Senior High School population who would have died
