The Rocky Mountain News had a good article today on how nature is reclaiming the now closed Rocky Flats site. Quoting the article:
People have become rarities at the now-defunct atom bomb plant, vastly outnumbered by coyotes, deer and owls.
Rocky Flats was once a sprawling complex where workers produced 70,000 nuclear weapons. In the past 10 years, thousands of workers dismantled it building by building and hauled off thousands of truckloads of radioactive waste.
Demolition workers packed up and left in October, leaving the 6,000 acres of foothills prairie to the occasional environmental regulator or researcher checking on the cleanup.
Heavily armed guards protecting deadly plutonium have been replaced by a 4-foot- tall wire fence that might stop a cow, but little else.
Rocky Flats is home to 108 species of songbirds, 23 species of raptors (birds of prey), 2 species of upland game birds, 49 species of waterfowl, 38 species of mammals, 14 species of reptiles and amphibians, and 11 species of fish. The buffer zone was largely untouched during the years of weapons production and will be the first area opened to visitors when the Rocky Flats National Wildlife Refuge opens sometime next year.

This past weekend was a busy one. Friday night I went dancing at the Turnverein like I do every week and then went to see the late showing of Chronicles of Narnia with a bunch of friends. The movie was ok, but not great. While it was very faithful to the novel, I ended up being a little disappointed in the overall presentation.
Sunday I had to get up early to go to Green Mountain Presbyterian Church where I was helping my friend Katie play bells in their Christmas cantata. We rehearsed for about 2 hours before the service and the whole performance went well. After the cantata, I went down to Larimer Square where I played in the annual TubaChristmas concert. There were about 325 tubas and euphoniums playing Christmas carols in the concert. Following the concert I went out to lunch/dinner with some friends from the concert at Sam's No. 3 before heading home for the night.
All in all it was a good weekend and a very busy one as well.

Welcome to my new site on CrystalTech. I have decided to switch hosting providers from Uplinkearth to CrystalTech. Over the next 72 hours, the new DNS information should propagate around the internet and you should be automatically transitioned to the new host. All of my email will continue to be received from both hosts for the time being, so I will get any mail sent to any s-church.net address. The new site has a number of navigation and maintenance enhancements and has been completely redone in ASP.NET 2.0.

Shane Church, 26, was a sophomore at CU when Barnett was hired in 1999. A Westminster-based software engineer, he recalled the excitement caused by Barnett's arrival.
"Everybody figured that with his background of having started coaching at Air Academy (High School), he'd be able to keep the good players in the state," said Church, who doesn't believe that has happened. "I'll give Barnett credit for getting his teams to play better than they were projected before the season. But I want some talent here, too. We need a coach to get everybody in the state excited. We need the new coach to build a wall around the state."
Church said that with the football programs at Nebraska and Kansas State down in recent years, CU had a chance to become a dominant team. "But Colorado missed that opportunity," he said.
