Why NOCO Style Moved

Greetings from Loveland, NOCO Style‘s new global headquarters as of April 1. We’ve set up shop in desk chair, a co-working space located in the old First National Bank building. Why the move? It wasn’t just for the boffo rooftop views and the tasty food at Five Tables downstairs. Like NOCO as a region, NOCO Style as a publication is in the process of evolving. We’re reaching out to new audiences, looking for new types of stories to tell, and trying to capture the new sense of identity that’s being forged . It seemed like a good time to...

Cary Forward

A conversation with blues guitarist Cary Morin. It takes a lot to keep Cary Morin away from FoCoMX. He’s only missed the music festival once since its inception in 2009. But he’ll be absent when the 11th FoCoMX rolls out April 25-29, for very good reasons. Morin discusses his upcoming project, NOCO’s music tradition and more in this edited Q+A.

Youth Movement

A Conversation With Sue Ballou Sue Ballou is co-chair of the Larimer County Partnership for Age-Friendly Communities’ Housing Priority Group. She is also a member of PAFC’s board of directors. This is a lightly edited excerpt of our conversation. Go to www.pafclarimer.org/housing-1 to learn about PAFC’s housing initiatives. Tell me how the Partnership for Age-Friendly Communities came about. Did you have a hand in organizing it? The Partnership for Age-Friendly Communities started as kind of a partnership between the Foundation on Aging, which has been around for quite a while, and the Larimer County Office on Aging. They wanted to do more than either had been able to do on their own. What time frame are we talking ? This was . . . . 2012? Around then. In 2013 we really started forming teams. So we held a stakeholders’ meeting that brought together some 60 people from the community to talk about issues on aging. And out of that we formed four priority groups: Housing, Health and Wellness, Culture of Aging, and Mobility and Access or transportation. And so on each of those priority groups, there are people who work in that field. I’m co-chair of Housing, and there are people from both housing authorities, there’s a developer, there’s somebody representing the Northern Colorado Builders’ Association, realtors, government people. Each of the four priority groups has those, and...

Greetings and Salutations

Here’s how to create a warm NoCo welcome for wedding travelers.   Raise your hand if this has ever happened to you. You drag yourself into the wedding hotel on Friday night, hungry and tired, with garment bags draped over every limb. As you leave the front desk with your room key, the clerk hooks a “welcome bag” over your pinky. You peek inside, hoping for a little refreshment. Instead you find a droopy sheet of crepe paper, a bag of Lay’s, a bottle or two of Evian, a Snicker’s bar, a box of TicTacs, a piece of wilted...

Rustic and Renewable

Located on four acres at the foot of Long Pond, Wood’s sparkling abode evokes the upraised lines, rough finishes, and cavernous feel of a pastoral outbuilding. You won’t find bales in the loft or saddles in the storeroom. But there’s enough weathered wood, corrugated tin and earth-toned surfaces to put any pony at ease.
