When you think of Fort Collins, you think of craft beer. Even if you don't drink beer and you think of Fort Collins, you still think of craft beer. It's a big part of our community and some local breweries are teaming up to build a Habitat For Humanity home in town for a family that lost t…
Sunday, June 9th, 2013 marked the one-year anniversary of the High Park Fire West of Fort Collins. I'll never forget. Over 80 thousand Acres were burned by the massive blaze. Over 260 homes were lost. One person lost their life.
I wrote a story Monday about the Sleigh Riders event this past Saturday after the crew planted 1900 trees in the tune of about 4 hours. One of the families sent us a video today that they had put together and I wanted to share their perspective.
