Couple in Boulder land dispute threatened
BOULDER, Colorado ” Police say someone mailed ammunition and a threatening letter to a Boulder couple who laid claim to part of their neighbors’ land under an obscure Colorado law.
A package sent to Richard McLean and Edith Stevens contained a shotgun shell, a rifle shell and a letter telling them to choose which they wanted to face.
The couple say the package arrived in December. Police said this week they found no fingerprints or DNA on the package and have closed the investigation without arresting anyone.
A judge awarded McLean and Stevens about one-third of their neighbor’s lot under the law of “adverse possession,” which allows someone to gain possession of property after using it unchallenged for 18 years.
The neighbors have appealed.

Are we seeing more bears because there are more bears on the valley floor, or because we’re all spending more time at home? It could be a bit of both.
