Paddleboarding has become a quintessential summer experience in Colorado. But before you head out for a day on the water, plan ahead. Here are some things to consider: Can you use your own board, or must you rent a board at the site? Where are the best places to paddleboard? We’ve listed some of the best below. (Note that this is not a complete list of every body of water where a paddleboard is allowed in Colorado, but can provide some ideas for getting started with the sport.) When is a good time to go? The best times to paddleboard are similar to hiking: in the morning to avoid summer’s afternoon thunderstorms and when there will be decent parking. What about safety precautions? Note that “people are legally required to have one life jacket available for every person aboard a vessel, including a paddleboard,” according to Joey Livingston, statewide public information officer for Colorado Parks and Wildlife. “We would recommend wearing it at all times. With our cold, deep … [Read more...] about Paddleboarding in Colorado: Where you can go, where you can rent, and tips for a fun day on the water

About 2.7 million or 9.1% of Californians identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender — the largest share of any highly populated state and one that is “considerably higher” than the national figure of 7.9%, according to a census data analysis published by the Public Policy Institute of California. Even the national figure is higher than estimates derived from other surveys. In February Gallup reported 7.1% of U.S. adults identify as LGBT — about double the percentage from 2012 when the firm first measured it. One possible reason for the difference, senior fellow Hans Johnson wrote in a post outlining his findings, was survey type. Gallup and others rely on phone calls, whereas the census used an online format, which may help survey takers feel more at ease when answering potentially sensitive questions. For his analysis, Johnson drew from the Census Bureau’s ongoing Household Pulse Survey, designed to measure household experiences with the pandemic. “In July 2021, for … [Read more...] about Analysis: California has the highest share of residents who identify as LGBT
Good morning, Bay Area. It’s Thursday, June 30, and we may finally find out today if the Oakland Athletics will be approved to move forward with their ballpark at Howard Terminal. Here’s what you need to know to start your day. Surge upon a surge? Before the current COVID surge, the Bay Area had been accustomed to the pandemic pattern where a rise in cases over several weeks was then followed by a short plateau and rapid drop. It’s now very clear: that isn’t playing out this time. Cases continue to rise in the Bay Area and across the nation, as two new highly infectious and immune-evasive coronavirus variants, BA.4 and BA.5, become dominant. These new variants could prolong the current surge or cause a fresh spike in cases, and they could apply pressure on health care systems frayed from nearly three years of pandemic stress. Just how bad could things get this time — and would mask mandates and other restrictions return? Erin Allday looks at what we know now . How to … [Read more...] about Bay Briefing: Will new COVID variants make the surge even worse?
Throughout the month of June, several Bay Area business owners announced the permanent closure of their cherished restaurants and bars after decades in service. Among the shuttered businesses was Buffalo Bill’s Brewery in Hayward, which closed its doors after nearly four decades. Owner and master brewer Geoff Harries first shared the news of Buffalo Bill’s Brewery’s closure on Instagram and later told SFGATE that his decision to close was based on a lengthy closure during the pandemic. The historic bar will be remembered for putting pumpkin ale on the map back in 1986 when its former owner, Bill Owens, revamped the polarizing brew and turned it into a seasonal classic. In San Francisco, Ramon Oropeza Sr., the owner of Villa D'Este, also announced the closure of his cherished Italian restaurant after 44 years. It’s unclear whether the pandemic motivated Oropeza in his decision to permanently close, but in a goodbye message, he told his longtime customers that he was looking … [Read more...] about Villa D’Este, Buffalo Bill’s Brewery and more Bay Area restaurants, bars that closed in June
This is a carousel. Use Next and Previous buttons to navigate 4 At some point, if the moral outrage subsides (it shouldn’t) and the eye-popping payouts fade into the background, this will become mostly about golf. The players. The actual competition. And that doesn’t shape up as especially appetizing, either. The LIV Golf Invitational Series makes its United States debut Thursday outside Portland, Ore. Three weeks ago, when the inaugural event was held near London, Charl Schwartzel held off Hennie du Plessis to win. Boy, that was riveting. Oh, wait, you don’t remember? Greg Norman and his rogue tour obviously can’t claim the ethical high ground. Not when its funding comes from Saudi Arabia, widely known for rampant human-rights abuses. Not when this looks, feels and smells like a blatant attempt at “sportswashing.” Norman’s bold, distasteful venture also can’t claim any sort of golf high ground. Not when its highest-profile player … [Read more...] about LIV Golf comes to U.S., but it’s not compelling sports theater on any level
