Business owners in Boulder County worry that university outbreak could spell financial trouble

BOULDER, Colo. — As COVID-19 numbers continue to spike in Boulder County, data show that an overwhelming number of cases involve students at the University of Colorado Boulder. On Sunday, of the 202 new cases in the county, 174 of the cases involved students or faculty.

This week, 14 students at CU Boulder face suspension for violating COVID-19 protocol at the school. The school is also moving all classes online to slow the spread.

Well, if that isn’t the next PGA Championship winner right there on video, the guy who will start a U.S. Open at Winged Foot at 8:07 a.m. on a Thursday in September 2020 with fellow PGA winners Tiger Woods and Justin Thomas. Here he comes in a black cap and gown and a yellow Cal stole and a pink lei, 30 minutes into the introductions of graduates, up the little stairs, right behind his
