Fort Collins Gets No. 1 Ranking In New List Of Best Places To Live In America - CBS Denver
Fort Collins has the honor of being the "Best Place to Live in America."
FORT COLLINS, Colo. (CBS4) – It’s a college town, a beer-lover’s town, a city bustling with industry, and now Fort Collins has the honor of being the “Best Place to Live in America.” That’s according to the website Livability.com, which came out with its rankings earlier this month. No other Colorado municipality landed in the Top 20. (credit: CBS) Fort Collins was described as a “vibrant and growing city that’s overflowing with opportunity” by the survey’s authors, who took the coronavirus pandemic into account. They put 1,000 small to mid-sized cities under the microscope for their list and considered broadband access, economic resilience and job numbers as important metrics now that more people are working from home and many others are searching for work. “Innovation and enthusiasm course throughout (Fort Collins),” they wrote. Being home to Colorado State University most likely helped a lot in the survey. Two other college towns — Ann Arbor, Michigan, and Madison, Wisconsin — were No. 2 and No. 3 on the list. Downtown Fort Collins during a snowstorm last year (credit: CBS) If it’s been a while since you’ve visited “the Fort,” Livability.com recommends the following activities in northern Colorado’s largest town: – Coffee shop: Bindle Coffee– Restaurant: Rio Grande– Best co-working space: The Articulate– Best breweries: New Belgium, Odell’s, Horse & Dragon– Creative hub: Wolverine Farm– Shopping: CSU Surplus Property (“like a thrift shop on steroids”) Old Town Square in Fort Collins (credit: CBS) Horsetooth Reservoir was also recommended as a place to go boating or hiking.

‘We Are Ready To Go’: Miami Dolphins GM Ready To Draft From A Distance During Coronavirus Crisis - CBS Miami
For Miami Dolphins GM Chris Grier, there is no escaping the million dollar question these days – even around his own household.
MIAMI (CBSMiami) – For Miami Dolphins GM Chris Grier, there is no escaping the million dollar question these days – even around his own household. “Pest control guy spraying for ants at the house and he’s over here asking me Dolphins questions the whole time,” he said chuckling. “My wife and kids are worse than you guys. Every day they pop in my office going, ‘Who are we taking?’” The prevailing wisdom is that the Dolphins will use their first pick on a quarterback, with Oregon’s Justin Herbert and Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa seen as the leading candidates. I asked Grier if the Fins are set on who they want, and if they are willing to trade up to get him. “We have an idea of who we like. But, again, we are going to make sure we have all the information,” he said. “In terms of moving up, trading, all that stuff, we are in the same process as it is every year. Teams call us. We call every team. Every team calls every team. Everyone is just doing their due diligence.” Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Dolphins will not have their usual war room set up. But Grier says the team’s brain trust will be well connected thanks to technology. “For us it will be different, but we are ready to go. We are gonna have some run-throughs of it. But we are very confident,” Grier said. Already, the Fins have had a busy offseason, adding some young but seasoned free agents. Now, with 14 draft picks, Grier believes the Fins are ready to stockpile talent to build a winning team. As the guy most responsible, he knows the pressure is on. “We do the job we expect to do. We feel fully capable and very excited to do it. We can build a strong team here,” he said.
