Postcard From Boulder

The case of the missing winter squash

In Boulder, Colorado:

  • Dried beans and squash go missing at local farmers' markets.
  • A very Boulder explanation of the popular Twitter acronym GTL.
  • Local non-profits got excited for 'Colorado Gives' day, a 24-hour donation marathon that can bring in thousands of extra dollars.
  • Income dropped 11 percent in the last decade.
