  • Boeing has called its 737 Max 8 ‘not suitable’ for certain high elevation airports like Denver

    LA Times ^ | Apr 2019 | Anita Sharpe
    Before last month’s crash of a flight that began in Ethiopia, Boeing Co. said in a legal document that large, upgraded 737s “cannot be used at what are referred to as ‘high/hot’ airports." At an elevation of 7,657 feet -- or more than a mile high -- Addis Ababa’s Bole International Airport falls into that category. High elevations require longer runways and faster speeds for takeoff. The Ethiopian airport’s altitude hasn’t been cited as a factor in the downing of Flight 302 and likely didn’t cause the crash. But it could have exacerbated the situation because an airplane’s performance degrades...

    The 18-year-old accused in the fatal shooting at a Colorado charter school shared social media posts that were critical of President Trump and Christians, but heaped praise on former President Barack Obama. On what appears to be his Facebook page, Devon Erickson gave no indication of the carnage to come at STEM School Highlands Ranch. The shaggy-haired teen filled his page with posts about the Denver Broncos, playing paintball and appearing in community plays like “Les Miserables” and “Legally Blonde The Musical.”

Suspect Devon Erickson (shown) wrote anti-Christian, anti-Trump messages on social media, while the other, Maya McKinney, calls herself Alec. The motive for the shooting in the suburb of Denver is unclear, but a...

  • Denver Post Sports Writer, Nuggets' Coach Call For Gun Control After School Shooting

    05/09/2019 8:56:26 AM PDT · by rktman · 36 replies ^ | 5/8/2019 | Jay Maxson
    Just hours after the deadly school shooting in Colorado Tuesday, the coach of the NBA's Denver Nuggets called for gun control. Then Denver Post sports columnist Mark Kiszla joined in the call, declaring, "We love our guns more than we love our children" and demanding "the change" that translates to gun control. Tuesday's shooting at the STEM School Highland Ranch south of Denver that left one victim dead and eight wounded prompted these knee-jerk demands that always follow gun violence. Prior to the Nuggets' home playoff game against Portland Tuesday night, Coach Michael Malone (see photo of Malone's pre-game press...

    Kendrick Castillo – only days from graduation – acted fast inside of his British literature class at a suburban Denver school Tuesday afternoon. And he paid with his life. When a gunman burst through the door at STEM School Highland Ranch, barking at students to stay in place and not move, Castillo, 18, rushed the shooter. It was a quick-thinking move that fellow students said gave them a chance to bolt for safety or take cover under desks. "Kendrick lunged at (the gunman), and he shot Kendrick, giving all of us enough time to get underneath our desks, to get...

  • Denver could make history with vote on 'magic mushrooms'

    05/07/2019 7:58:18 PM PDT · by LouAvul · 63 replies
    Voters on Tuesday were deciding whether to make Denver the first U.S. city to decriminalize psilocybin — the psychoactive substance in "magic mushrooms" — and add a new chapter to the city's role in shaping wider drug policy. A citizen initiative on the ballot followed the same tack taken by marijuana activists to decriminalize pot possession in 2005 in the city. That move was followed by statewide legalization in 2012. A number of other states then broadly allowed marijuana use and sales by adults. Psilocybin decriminalization campaign organizers have said their only goal is to keep people out of jail...

    In August 2018, the Colorado Department of Transportation broke ground on Central 70, a massive five-year (at minimum) project intended to reimagine and revitalize a stretch of Interstate 70 through Denver — and construction on the I-270 flyover to eastbound I-70 will result in a large stretch of the highway being closed at 10 p.m. tonight and staying that way for the entire weekend. The timing of this temporary shutdown is noteworthy, given that it follows in the wake of a new national report that rips Central 70 and argues that rather than expanding the existing roadway, CDOT should tear...
