Here are the best stories in Boulder today:

  1. Pre-tenured UC faculty impacted by COVID-19 are getting grant aid. The new Thrive grant provides up to $10,000 to support research and creative work. COVID-19 has affected tenure-track faculty the most during the pandemic. (CU today)
  2. Spyder is no longer the clothing sponsor of the US Ski Team after 33 years. Boulder-based Spyder Active Sports has been supplying US Ski & Snowboard outerwear for more than three decades, but starting this winter, the US Olympic team will be wearing skiwear from Italian brand Kappa. (CO Daily)
  3. Have Denver Metro rent prices gone up as much as you think? A new report from the University of Denver’s associate professor of real estate shows just how much Denver metro rent prices have risen over the past year. (9News)
  4. A Boulder couple return to overseas voluntary service. The Peace Corps suspended global operations and evacuated nearly 7,000 volunteers from more than 60 countries at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. Lisa and Peter Waugh are due to leave for Peru at the end of May 2022. (FOX31)
  5. Rattlesnake season is upon us. With the warmer weather, hikers aren’t the only ones returning to Colorado’s trails. Rattlesnakes also like to hang out on popular hiking trails on sunny days, and wildlife experts warn hikers to be vigilant. (Barometer)
