CSU recently hosted the Cantaloupe Safety Symposium. The seminar brought together many food safety experts to discuss recent food born illness outbreaks and preventative measures. In 2011 an outbreak of Listeria from cantaloupes left 147 people sick and resulted in 33 deaths. Just last year an outbreak of salmonella left 261 people ill and resulted in 3 deaths. According to CSU microbiologist and food safety researcher, Dr. Larry Goodrich, cantaloupes are one of the prefect foods for bacterial growth. It’s   flesh contains plenty of water and has an ideal PH level for bacteria to grow. Dr. Goodrich discussed how the producers and farmers need to take more responsibility in creating safer environments so the melons are less likely to be exposed to bacteria.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration hopes to implement new regulation policies this year that will impose stricter restrictions on food producers. After studying the outbreaks they hope to plan more inspections of food producing operations in order to help reduce risk. CTV11 reporter Tom Mullen gives tells us a little about the research discussed, why cantaloupes are so vulnerable and how to protect yourself from getting sick.

Kardashian gets fairytale divorce; Reese Witherspoon arrested

Looks like Kim Kardashian is finally getting her wish for a fairytale divorce from NBA star– and husband of 72 days— Kris Humpries.

E! News confirmed a final divorce settlement was reached and signed between the two bickering parties then handed into an LA court last Friday.

Humphries rep told E! News exclusively that Kris and his family are excited to move forward and are “grateful for all of the support they have received in this process.”

This settlement comes 536 days after battling in court and six months after Kardashian began to house rapper Kanye West’s baby.

The details of the settlement still have yet to be released, but Humphries will not get the 7 millions dollars from Kardashian that he initially wanted–it’s reported he won’t even get a single penny!

Cheers to welcoming baby Kimye into a Kris Humphries free world!


For Reese Witherspoon and her agent husband Jim Toth, Friday night ended in handcuffs for the celebrity couple. Unfortunately for them, the handcuffs had nothing to do with kinky bedroom action.

According to the police report filed, Witherspoon’s husband was pulled over for suspicion of driving drunk after he was weaving between lanes. Toth blew a 0.139 on the Breathalyzer test, subsequently followed by charges of driving under the influence.

Toth however wasn’t the only one getting in trouble with the law. As Toth was given a field sobriety test, Witherspoon, 37, got out of her silver Ford Fusion, only to be ordered by the trooper to go back.

“Mrs. Witherspoon began to hang out the window and say that she did not believe that I was a real police officer,” the trooper’s report said. He told her to “sit on your butt and be quiet.”

She then got out of the car again and when told again to return to the car, said she was a “U.S. citizen” and was allowed to “stand on American ground,” according to the report.

Witherspoon wasn’t backing down and decided to play the celebrity card (assumably because she can no longer play the blonde card). The Hollywood star reportedly asked the officer if he knew who she was.

“I answered, ‘No, I don’t need to know your name,’ ” the officer wrote in his report.

She went on to tell the officer, “You are going to be on national news.”

Since the arrest and quick stint in jail, the celeb couple have both expressed their deep regret for the night’s actions and hopes to move on and learn from the incident.

Watch the video below of Witherspoon’s arrest and let Ram Entertainment know what you think of the latest jailed celebrity couple.

Fort Collins artists paints transformer boxes to reduce graffiti

Have you ever noticed the colorful painted transformer boxes scattered across Fort Collins? In 2006, the City of Fort Collins came up with a plan to help prevent or reduce graffiti in an inexpensive way. They hired local artists to paint transformer boxes across town. The painting of these transformer boxes not only brought beautiful art to the community, but it made the boxes less desirable for graffiti and tagging.When graffiti struck, the City would spend money sanding, priming and painting the boxes along with 20-30 man hours of labor. This artistic plan to reduce graffiti has been estimating to save up to $130,000 over the life of one transformer box.

When the project started, Amelia Caruso painted the first group of transformer boxes in Tenney Alley, north of Mountain Avenue. The project has grown since, hiring 9 artists to paint over 11 transformer box locations this next year. Each artist showcases his or her own artistic style on each box. The artists are currently submitting their plans for the 2013-2014 year transformer boxes.To find out more information about the Artist  in the Alley  and Art in Public Places programs, visit www.fcgov.com/artspublic/.
