Whether you want to read about the city or just pick up a summer read from a local author, you will find a little bit of everything from Boulder authors.

As the Daily Camera was being torn down outside our office we had the pleasure of having Clif Harald, with The Boulder Economic Council, and Liz Hanson, with the City of Boulder, present at our recent monthly meeting.  It was a fun and very insightful look at Boulder and the economic engine that drives our city in paradise.

Diversity is the name of the game in Boulder, from high tech to back-to-basics natural foods, the City of Boulder provides jobs for 100,000 individuals.  There is a job for everyone; man, woman and child in Boulder.  Seeing a 1 to 1 ratio is very rare.  If you look at Denver as a comparison, Denver has 1.5 million jobs for a population of 3 million, or a 1 to 2 ratio.  Fort Collins runs at 1 to 1.5 ratio.  The Colorado economy

The Fourth of July is coming up fast, have you made your plans? We've gathered a list of our favorites to give you some ideas for the big day. 

Why not start the day off at the Boulder Reservoir for their Star Spangled Splash? This day in the sun begins at 8am with a 5k, followed by a volleyball tournament at 10am. Grab some food from one of the food trucks that will be hanging out in the sand, and dance the afternoon away to the live DJ. This party ends at 6pm, and does not include fireworks, but is a great way to get a head start on celebrating.

Once you have your fun in the sun it's about time to settle in for a fireworks show. If you want to stay in Boulder, head on over to Folsom Field on the CU of Boulder

We all love the convenience of our tablets and smart phones these days, so why would we not expect our kids to be just as attached? I think as parents, we know our kids could use a little less time in front of a screen, but that isn’t always easy. Now that school is out you have even more chances to get out there and un-plug with your kids. The more you get the family away from the screens, the longer you’ll stay away too. Our kids are learning by example, so let’s help them see the fun that awaits them without their iPad in tow.  Here are some of our tips to get un- plugged.

First things first, keep it simple. Too many options or toys in a room can be very overwhelming to those little eyes. Try setting up a table with just the dinosaurs or the Play

Created back in the 1970’s, disc golf shares many similarities with traditional golf. You start at a tee and your goal is to get your disc (your Frisbee) to the end of the course in as few throws as possible. At the end of the course will be the pole hole, an elevated metal basket that you aim your disc at. Unlike traditional golf, disc golf offers free courses, making it readily available to anyone who is interested. Some of the courses may offer challenges, such as water or trees, but with disc golf you will not need a golf cart to make your way through the course. Sound like a great idea for your next Saturday? We have gathered a list of the courses in and around Boulder for you to explore.

In June/2013 the Boulder Valley housing market was humming along. Construction was peaking with new homes and condominiums being built in most market areas. Dormant housing projects, the product of several years of buyer disinterest, had new life breathed into them. Mortgage interest rates were slightly under 4% for the traditional thirty year fixed-rate loan. Single family home sales were up 12% for Boulder County through May/2013 compared to through May/2012. Attached unit sales were up nearly 15% for the same time periods. Available inventory was scarce. Home values had increased. Bank foreclosures and short sales were few and far between. All the stars had aligned and it was a seller’s market.

Here we are twelve months later. Several of the
