Look who just got named one of America’s “Top 10 Booming College Towns.” Greeley checked in at #9 on the 2018 list recently unveiled by CardRates.com, a consumer-oriented financial website. In addition to Greeley’s rapid job growth, low unemployment and well-educated population, CardRates lauded the city’s cultural amenities, especially the craft beer scene. The ranking places Greeley in the same league as buzzworthy burghs like Boise and Bozeman. It’s also one of four Great Plains communities on the list, alongside Bismarck, Lincoln and Dallas. So Greeley adds another prize to its growing trophy case, alongside recent national kudos from WalletHub.com, 24/7WallSt.com, and Livability. Read all about it at www.cardrates.com/news/top-10-booming-college-towns. Two NOCO organizations hope to smash a world record in the name of stronger teeth—and you can help. On February 26, Change Gangs (www.changegangs.com) and My Big Day (www.mybigdaycompany.com) will create the longest toothbrush chain of all time. Laid end-to-end, they’ll cover 5.5 miles—that’s 55,000 toothbrushes at about 6 inches per, if you’re doing the math. Afterward, the record-breaking brushes (all individually wrapped and perfectly sanitary) will be donated to kids in need as part of National Children’s Dental Health Month. To donate toothpaste, participate in the brush-laying, or otherwise support the cause, check out the event website at www.milesofsmilescolorado.com.  An ice cream social in February? There’s one every month at Fort Collins’ newest ice cream parlor, Old Town Churn...
