Local Collaborative Trail Wins Starburst Award

in Local News

Want to bike or walk from Loveland to Fort Collins without motorized vehicle hassles?  Well, you can now…on an award winning trail!

And the trail has won a Colorado Lottery Starburst award for excellence in the use of Lottery proceeds for community and conservation projects.

The 4.4-mile long, 10-foot wide Long View Trail runs along the east side of North Taft Avenue in Loveland and South Shields Street in Fort Collins and provides a safe, detached, non-motorized alternative to traveling between the two cities.

All In a Days Work…NOT!

in Local News

Can you imagine wondering every time you pull somebody over if you're going to get shot in the chest?

Wow.  How many of us would seriously be considering another line of work if this happened?

Five years ago Loveland Police Officer Garret Osilka took a shotgun blast to his bulletproof vest that had such force it created a fist-sized dent in his chest. Patrolling the streets of Loveland to this day, he said he has no trouble remembering what it felt like.

Did you know that today is #NationalZooLoversDay?

While the Denver Zoo is an awesome place, less than an hour away you could visit lions and tigers and bears in a more natural setting at “The World's Largest Carnivore Refuge”!

Yup, we're talking about The Wild Animal Sanctuary in Keenesburg.

And if you're into wild birds, you don't even have to leave Loveland…we've got the Morey Wildlife Reserve right here!  There have been 34 different species seen there this month already!

Today would be an awesome day to get out there and observe…:-)

Did you know that guinea pig is a traditional food in Ecuador?

Currently, Loveland law prohibits ownership of potbelly pigs, pygmy goats, regular goats, Dexter cattle and large livestock within city limits, unless they are show animals.

But, the Loveland City Council in coming weeks may decide that pigs as well as pygmy goats  are no longer contraband inside the city limits.

Would you raise them as pets, bacon, or both?
