Since the moment she was born, Colo defied the odds. Through the mid-1950s, zookeepers did not believe it possible for a gorilla to be born and raised in captivity.

She wasn’t even supposed to have been conceived. But in 1956, Colo made history, becoming the world’s first gorilla born in a zoo. She bewildered animal experts and captivated the hearts of Americans for more than half a century, exceeding her life expectancy by two decades and living long enough to become a great-great grandmother.

On Tuesday, the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium announced that Colo, the oldest known living gorilla in the country, had died. She departed in her sleep overnight, less than a month after celebrating her 60th birthday.

Twenty years ago, Boulder Weekly did a story about a rash of business closures including a number of well-liked, locally owned shops and eateries. The Pearl Street Mall was particularly hit hard back in 1994-95 as many long-term leases were expiring around the same time and landlords were more than tripling the rents in some cases because… well, they could and that’s what landlords do when they can. It all made for a disappointing transition that saw the Mall go from almost entirely locally owned shops to a mix, including a good number of national chain stores.

So here we are again some 20 years later with Boulder experiencing the loss of, or at least the relocation of, some of its best-known and most beloved businesses. The reasons for these latest changes are more varied this time around. Landlords are still the source of change in most instances but gouging the price on leases seems to be only one of the problems. Another culprit is that owners are increasingly deciding to sell off affordable commercial property so it can be redeveloped into not-so-affordable commercial property. In other instances, business owners are simply shutting down because they have been at it for so long they just feel the need to ride off into the retail sunset.

While some businesses have definitely decided to close, others have chosen to relocate, leaving a hole in their old neighborhoods that isn’t likely to be filled. Still more business owners aren’t yet sure of their future, likely to close but still pondering whether they might move if they could find a suitable new location they can afford. But that’s a big “if ” in Boulder these days, as the new and very expensive are replacing the old and slightly less expensive on the commercial real estate front at an alarming pace.

Why the Sky Is Blue shows that skylight can be viewed from a surprising variety of vantage points. We learn how our physiology and cognitive capacities govern our perception of the sky's color. And we discover why this everyday experience has been such a source of fascination and controversy over the centuries.

Delightful and intriguing, Why the Sky Is Blue shows how the attempt to answer this age-old and deceptively simple question only enhances the magic of the blue sky we see above us.
