    Original Content | 6/20 | Red Fox
    My name is Roger. I lived in Denver for over 33 years. I voted every election against illegal immigration and against the marijuana that they brought with them to my country. The smell of people checking out of reality could be experienced all around Denver, especially from the freeways at highway speeds at I-70 and Colorado Blvd and at I-25 and Auraria Campus. I was a truck driver handling eighty thousand pounds of vehicle and merchandise at the time which made me very dangerous behind the wheel if not paying attention. As you know, a sleepy driver is more deadly...

    A political action committee backing former state Sen. Michael Johnston of Denver for the Democratic nod for governor has received another $1 million dollars from Michael Bloomberg, bringing the wealthy former New York mayor’s total donations to the committee to $2 million. ... The $1 million contribution was the largest that any campaign committee received in the most recent reporting period from May 31 to June 13, according to the secretary of state’s office’s TRACER campaign finance system. Second on the list: another $750,000 from fellow Democrat U.S. Rep. Jared Polis of Boulder to his gubernatorial campaign, bringing his total...

    A 24-year-old man accidentally shot by an FBI agent doing a backflip on the dance floor of a Colorado nightclub says he initially couldn't believe he had been wounded while enjoying a night out with friends and thought "some idiot set off a firecracker." In an exclusive interview with ABC News' "Good Morning America" set to be broadcast Thursday, Thomas Reddington said he remains "confused" by the bizarre incident that happened at the Mile High Spirits Tasting Room near downtown Denver around 12:45 a.m. Saturday.

    The off-duty FBI agent whose weapon discharged at a Denver nightclub has been identified as Chase Bishop of the bureau's Washington Field Office, law enforcement sources told CBS News. Bishop was apparently on a personal trip in Denver when his weapon went off Sunday after he did flip while dancing, wounding another person in the leg. The name of the victim has not yet been released but authorities said he is expected to be OK. CBS Denver reports that Bishop was taken to the Denver Police Department headquarters and later released to an FBI supervisor. Possible charges are pending lab...

    An Uber driver in Denver shot a passenger multiple times early Friday before the vehicle they were traveling in crashed, snarling traffic on one of the city’s major roadways, according to media reports. Denver police said the driver and passenger apparently got involved in a dispute before the driver opened fire, striking the adult male multiple times while traveling on Interstate 25 near University Boulevard around 3 a.m. The vehicle, identified by Fox 31 Denver as a silver sedan, veered off the road and hit a wall on a highway ramp. The driver called 911 to report the shooting, The...

    When the Denver City Council announced that it would not investigate Mayor Michael Hancock’s lascivious text messages with an employee, the condemnations poured in. Kyle Clark, the local news anchor and prolific quipper, had a sizzler ready. ... the structure of municipal government. That’s the kind of thing city nerds fantasize about. Anyway, in case it was too subtle: Clark was implying that the city’s elected officials were getting questionable legal advice because they rely on the City Attorney’s Office and its leader, Kristin Bronson, who was appointed by the mayor. The tweet was missing some subtlety, as tweets do....

    Washington - The Democratic National Committee is eyeing eight American cities for its 2020 Democratic National Convention, a party official tells CNN. The DNC sent requests for proposals to a host of cities and received responses from eight: Atlanta; Birmingham, Alabama; Denver; Houston; Miami Beach; Milwaukee; New York; and San Francisco. "The DNC sent the original letters of interest to a broad list of cities that have traditionally been able to meet the preliminary requirements for serving as a host," the official said. "We expect the entire selection process to play out over the next year."

    Billionaire Tom Steyer wants to impeach President Donald Trump — and he’s bringing his case to Denver. Steyer, a Californian who spent millions backing select Democrats in the 2016 elections, will host a town hall at Mile High Station May 16 — part of a series of similar events that his campaign, Need to Impeach, has hosted nationwide since March. The town halls attempt to “make the patriotic case to Democrats, Independents and Republicans about the need for impeaching Trump,” according to a Wednesday press release from the campaign. “According to a recent Quinnipiac poll, 70 percent of Democrats support...

    The video clip lasts just 20 seconds, but it’s long enough to anger anyone who believes public officials and their loved ones secretly suffer from a strong sense of entitlement. Jordan Hancock, the 22-year-old son of Denver Mayor Michael B. Hancock, had been clocked going 65 mph in a 40 mph zone in Aurora, a suburb of Denver. It’s unclear what preceded the heated exchange between the young man and the officer captured in the video, originally obtained by Denver ABC affiliate KMGH. But at some point, the 22-year-old unloads on the officer, spewing a stream of profanity and gay...

Today, 150 journalists from the Denver Post, the St. Paul Pioneer Press, and the Mercury News, and 49 other smaller papers who are accustomed to reporting the news will become the news, as they protest the owner of their papers in what some have called “a fight for their lives.” Alden Global Capital has been surprisingly silent...

If all goes according to plan, a prototype of such an aircraft will fly in the fall and could be in customer hands by 2023. The six-seat, $6.5 million TriFan 600 being built by XTI Aircraft in Denver holds the promise of dramatically cutting travel times between major city centers and offering the ultimate in private, secure transport. “It affords you utmost privacy as it eliminates the need for an airport,” said XTI CEO Robert LaBelle.

    The Pew Charitable Trusts ^ | April 2, 2018 | Martha T. Moore
    The most popular place to put a city park is, increasingly, on a highway. Cities looking to boost their downtowns, or to improve downtrodden neighborhoods, are creating “highway cap parks” on decks constructed over freeways that cut through the urban center. Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Denver and Dallas have deck parks underway. Atlanta, Houston, Minneapolis and Santa Monica, California, are among the cities considering similar projects. In crowded cities, highway deck parks are a way to create new acreage and provide green space that can spur downtown development. Capping a highway to create a park also can reconnect urban neighborhoods sliced apart...

    The governor of Colorado does our nation a grave disservice by misleading the public about the impact of marijuana on his state in the April 9 interview in Rolling Stone magazine. Neither the governor's statements, nor the smoke rising from 4/20 events, can hide the fact that drug use and addiction, especially among youths, are a growing public health concern in communities across Colorado and the nation. ... According to the 2016 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, Colorado is a national leader among 12-17-year-olds in: (1) Last year marijuana use; (2) Last month marijuana use; and (3) The...

Select Dead Sea Scrolls are on display at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science in Denver, Colorado, from March 16 to September 3, 2018. Perhaps the most significant archaeological discovery of the 20th century, the Dead Sea Scrolls represent the earliest extant copies of the Hebrew Bible (Old Testament). In addition to Biblical texts, the scrolls contain numerous texts, such as the War Scroll (Scroll 1QM), penned by a sectarian community.
