A test of UNC's Emergency Alert Messaging System will be conducted about noon on Wednesday, June 5. The test message will be sent to UNC email accounts and text-enabled office phones and via text and voice messages to subscribed cell phones. If you want to sign up to receive emergency alert messages on your cell phone or if your cell phone number changed recently, instructions are available on the Emergency Alert System website.

Help Get Three City Blocks in Greeley Revitalized

Here's a chance to help Greeley get three city blocks spruced up for free, and all you have to do is click your computer's mouse a couple of times. Greeley's one of 100 cities across the U.S. selected for "Main Street Matters" a competition sponsored by paint manufacturer Benjamin Moore.

If it gets enough online votes, the city will be among the 20 that will receive enough paint and supplies to paint the facades, porches, shutters and trim of three city blocks.

Voting for the competition ends June 30. To vote for Greeley, go to the Main Street Matters website, click on Colorado in the U.S. map and then click on "Greeley." Voters can cast a vote once per day.
