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.

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

The Front Range Fire Consortium took part in a training exercise for large-area emergency searches at Foothills Mall on Thursday. Trainees’ helmets were blacked out, and they had to perform practice search-and-rescue operations to simulate a fire situation. The Mall and its general manager, Cynthia Eichler, have been collaborating to help train these future firefighters for years using an empty department store. Training exercises like these help the cadets learn from more real-life examples.
