    The starboard engine of a United Airlines passenger jet burst into flames over Denver on Saturday — forcing an emergency landing and causing a huge piece of engine casing to land on a suburban front yard, officials and witnesses said. Amazingly, no injuries were reported from on board Honolulu-bound United Flight 328 or on the ground — despite dramatic images showing the rattling, burning engine and the front yard wreckage. The Boeing 777 took off from Denver International Airport at 12:49 p.m. with 231 passengers and 10 crew members on board but quickly experienced engine trouble and returned to Denver...
  • House Republican reacts to Dems' fit over guns in her home(more in depth than yesterday)

    Reacting to Democrats who had a fit over the fact she has guns in her home, a Colorado congresswoman says her colleagues across the aisle are "too busy mocking the Constitution" to get their work done. The reaction from U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-Colo., came after a virtual hearing that disintegrated into a diatribe against the Second Amendment, which, Boebert pointed out, is part of the Constitution that Democrats swore an oath to uphold. "Rather than having a productive debate about policy … Democrats were too busy mocking the Constitution and disrespecting the everyday Americans that I was elected to...

The comments from both legislators came during the announcements and introductions of the House Friday morning. “Today is the 448th Friday since my son Alex...

    Anyway, the reason it was in Fort Collins is ’cause Dan lived in Fort Collins. Remember, his original complaint was his wife wouldn’t let him spend the money, because she was not a fan. She wouldn’t let him spend the money on a subscription to the newsletter, so that’s when I suggested he do a bake sale and leave his wife out of it if she didn’t want to be part of it. (interruption) Oh, that’s right. He was getting Xerox copies. That’s what blew me up. We had a copyright and intellectual theft issue going on, and this guy...

    It was only three months ago that we lowly voters passed Prop 117 to stop the state legislature from raising taxes without our consent by calling them new “fees.” Thanks to our Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights, we get to vote on tax increases. Well, at least we did until our TABOR-loathing state Supreme Court ruled that taxes labeled a “fee” need no consent. We just want consensual taxation. Now, the legislature is already entertaining a colossal tax increase, again, without our consent, this time for transportation. The dodge they plan to get around 117 is to immensely increase an existing...

    Accountants along Colorado’s Front Range are telling CBS4 that dozens of clients who paid their 2019 taxes are nonetheless getting menacing letters from the IRS. Those letters are threatening late fees, penalties and in some cases, property seizure. “Well they’re frightened,” said Denver CPA William Fraser, “They don’t understand why the government, the IRS, would be chasing after them when they’ve paid their taxes.” Fraser said he has about 30 clients who paid their 2019 taxes but are still getting the intimidating letters from the feds. He says his clients are “frightened, angry, stressed, worried because the letters say they’re...

    Sky-Hi News ^ | February 1, 2021 | Tim T. Schowalter
    Joe Biden just put me out of business by suspending new oil and gas leases and drilling permits. I am a petroleum geologist and generate drilling prospects in the Rocky Mountains on federal lands. I worked six years to get a prospect ready to drill and Biden just illegally broke the terms of the lease, killing the deal. This action was done under the guise of helping climate change but will not stop one CO2 molecule from being released, as there is nothing in the executive order to reduce consumption. No one is going to drive less, fly less or...
  • Biden Killed the Keystone Pipeline, Now He's Killing Small Towns

    One of President Joe Biden's first moves in office was to sign a number of executive orders, including one to cancel the Keystone XL Pipeline, which would bring oil from Canada into the Great Planes. With the stroke of a pen, Biden's executive order effectively killed 11,00 construction jobs. The small town of Dorchester, Nebraska, which has 600 residents, immediately felt the impact of Biden's "climate change" initiative. The town was once bustling with construction equipment and piping. That came to a screeching halt. And now, fields of pipe lay untouched. "We had pipeline crews here. During the COVID, it...

    Colorado Parks and Wildlife recently shared a video of an encounter between a skunk and one of Colorado's deadliest predators with an outcome many wouldn't expect. The video below captures a skunk walking by a mountain lion at night. The clip then cuts to another scene that shows the mountain lion seemingly trying to decide whether or not to pounce on the small creature. The skunk (now seen through the brush on the left side of the clip) bluff charges the lion multiple times as the lion can be seen sinking backward and baring its teeth. Eventually, the skunk wanders...
