Loveland resident Lloyd Drew hikes towards the Devils Backbone trail head in Loveland March 16. Drew moved from Indiana to Colorado four years ago and his favorite trail is Bobcat Ridge, Devils Backbone being his second favorite. I think a lot more people are hiking at Devils Backbone today than usual, but I think it is partly because schools are closed because of spring break and the virus, said Drew. I think hiking is a good thing for children to do now to help prevent spread of the virus because they are outdoors instead of indoors with a group of people. (Anna von Pechmann | The Collegian)

Heywood stood with the sign for an hour as punishment for falling in last place of his Fantasy Football league. At the beginning of the season Heywood “did not think this was a possibility” for him, but in the last week of the season his teams began performing poorly, consequently moving him to last place. “I had the choice between a spray tan, shaving my eyebrows or doing this,” said Heywood. “So I picked this.” (Lucy Morantz | The Collegian)
