I'd've Tried the Black Eyed Peas Halftime Show...

"Only in Boulder" the denizens assert with great pride. As you start to question the collective municipal wisdom, the phrase takes a different meaning -- but I digress.

Unwelcome bear on Boulder hospital property chased off with country music

Maybe it was the country-western music or maybe it was just too loud to sleep. Either way, Colorado Division of Wildlife officials succeeded over the weekend in shooing away a hibernating bear after it was found holed up under a residence on Boulder Community Hospital property.

This facility used to be devoted to outpatient rehab, and I know it well from the lovely bride's 10 week stay. It is right at the edge where the town ends and the mountains begin. Not too suprising that a bear would be there.

Sheehan... Churchill... The names in this story are evocative.

I laughed at the suggestion that some other kind of music "might not have worked as a deterrent." Jeez man, if they played country-western music that loud in northwest Boulder I'm surprised they didn't turn out a few hibernating hippies too!
