    Denver will temporarily shut down a park that has devolved into a haven for drug users, crime and human waste. Civic Center Park and the adjacent areas will close beginning next Wednesday “until further notice” as the city cleans up and restores the green space. “The current challenges within Civic Center Park have reached a tipping point, creating conditions that put the public’s health and safety at risk,” Mayor Michael Hancock said in a statement. “This is the people’s park and we are taking steps so that everyone can once again feel safe and welcomed there,” the mayor said. Officials...

    A historically African-American parish in Denver was robbed Monday night of a number of valuables, most notably the tabernacle and several consecrated hosts. Thieves plundered Curé d'Ars Catholic Church and made off with all the church's vessels used for Mass from the vestry, which they accessed by kicking in a wooden door. They also took a laptop used for livestreaming Masses, and a sound board used to connect to the church's microphones. Father Joseph Cao, the church's pastor, said he has no idea who could have carried out the robbery, which took place sometime during the night of Aug. 30-31....

    The creators of “South Park” made a major announcement this morning during a conversation with Gov. Jared Polis – they’re in the process of buying Casa Bonita. Trey Parker and Matt Stone have said that they wanted to buy the iconic restaurant in the past, but the owner had reported that he was focused on reopening and not looking to sell at the moment. “As of about an hour ago, pending bankruptcy proceedings that have to happen in a couple of months, we’ve come to an agreement with the owner and we bought it,” Stone said.

    As of today the investigation into Anderson is still ongoing. Black Lives Matter activist Tay Anderson is returning to work at the Denver School Board after stepping down a few months ago amid accusations he molested over 60 undocumented students. As of today the investigation into Anderson is still ongoing. But that’s what compels Anderson to come back, as he believes the evaluation into his conduct has over-expanded in scope. According to ABC7 in Denver, the investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct against him have cost the Denver Public Schools Board of Education more than $50,000 so far. Tay Anderson...

    (Gabriel) Rodriguez said he arrived in Denver from Washington state last Thursday, intending to move to Colorado. He said mutual friends introduced him to Richard Platt, 42, who he met for the first time on Thursday. He said Platt recommended they stay at the Maven Hotel near Coors Field, which struck a chord with Rodriguez. “I wanted to go to the All-Star show, wanted to be part of that,” said Rodriguez. He said he was armed with a 9mm pistol and also had an AR-15 rifle in his 8th floor hotel room, which he booked himself. Rodriguez said he designs...

Although police sources did confirm to FOX31 they found 16 long guns, body armor and more than 1,000 rounds of ammo at the scene, FBI Denver tweeted that they are not aware of any threat to the All-Star Game events, venues, players or the community at this time. “As is the case w/major special events, the FBI works closely with our law enforcement partners in preparation for & in support of...

    A hotel maid is being hailed for her role in preventing what police fear could have been a “Las Vegas style shooting” at the upcoming MLB All-Star Game in Denver, a report said Saturday. The housekeeper tipped off cops after she found more than a dozen weapons and 1,000 rounds of ammunition at a hotel near Coors Field Friday, according to ABC7 Denver. The alarming discovery was made inside a room on the eight floor of the Maven Hotel, just two blocks from the mile-high ballpark that is hosting the “Midsummer Classic” Tuesday, the station said. Cops removed 16 long...

    Colorado police on Friday explained how a heroic bystander who had just shot and killed a cop-hating gunman was himself fatally struck by a responding officer. Johnny Hurley, 40, was shopping in downtown Arvada, a Denver suburb, when he heard Ronald Troyke ambush and murder Officer Gordon Beesley, who was responding to a call Monday afternoon, officials said. Troyke, 59, then returned to his truck to grab an AR-15, and was holding it when Hurley — who was carrying a concealed weapon — confronted him and shot him dead, Police Chief Link Strate said in a video clip posted Friday....
  • Denver Post goes blind, didn’t see these violent protestors at conservative summit

    The Denver Post is either straight up lying or the most incompetent media outlet that covered the Western Conservative Summit over the weekend and resulting protest by leftist whacktivists. Because according to the Denver Post, there was no protest: Compare that headline to The Washington Times’s coverage: Here’s the Denver Post’s “scene one,” Andy Ngo’s speech: As he spoke, several police officers stood sentry in front of the stage to protect him; they left when he left the stage. Ngo is often a target of protests, and Westword reported that a range of progressive groups, including the Denver Communists, would...

    Antifa activists brought chaos as they descended Friday on the annual Western Conservative Summit in Denver, drawn by favorite targets such as Oregon journalist Andy Ngo and Rep. Lauren Boebert, Colorado Republican. Videos posted by Mr. Ngo and the Blaze’s Elijah Schaffer showed multiple altercations, including a brawl between a man who confronted dozens of protesters outside the Hyatt Regency Denver, site of the two-day conference hosted by the Centennial Institute. Protesters, some with bullhorns, harassed people entering and exiting the hotel. Activists blocked traffic, prompting one driver to jump out of her car and accuse them of throwing a...

    Jesus Torres can see a lot from his perch in the cab of a tanker truck. Cars with blown tires on the side of the pothole-scarred roads. Overturned tankers on exit ramps curved too sharply for large modern trucks to handle. And more often than not, red tail lights snaking into the distance. “They need to add more lanes to all the highways,” he said on a recent morning on Interstate 270 just after leaving the Phillips 66 terminal in Commerce City. Far too often, Torres said, accidents on this highway through Colorado’s industrial center will cause long delays that...

    Denver School Board director-at-large Tay Anderson, a fervent Black Lives Matter activist, is accused of molesting over 60 undocumented students, using the residency status of the children to target kids as young as 14-years-old. A parent delivered legislative testimony last Tuesday, claiming there is an unidentified sexual predator within the school system who has targeted students. Brooks Fleming told the committee that 62 individuals had sought help handling the unnamed perpetrator. The abusive experiences ranged from unwanted touching to “violent acts of rape,” the woman said. 61 of the victims lacked documentation or were recipients of the Deferred Action for...

    An Aurora police officer, Daniel Bertelson, sent a department-wide email this month as he announced his retirement, offering some barbs and harsh assessments of the current climate for law enforcement. “I am leaving Colorado for palm trees and less communism,” wrote Bertelson, who spent 16 years with the Aurora Police Department. “Try to ignore the politicians and media,” he wrote to his colleagues. “They know nothing of this profession or honor; they’re self-serving con artists, well-dressed pimps and prostitutes at best.” The number of officers leaving APD has been increasing in recent years, jumping more than 60% from 2019 to...

    In an interview last year, Mr. Freeman argued that the austere cuts enacted at his newspapers reflected a more realistic understanding of the industry’s direction and better positioned Alden-owned publishers for the pandemic’s downswing. “We were prepared for a real step down in terms of a recession because we were honest about what was needed in the future,” he said. “Numbers don’t lie.” The newspaper industry’s numbers looked bleak even before the pandemic. Annual advertising revenue dropped 70%, or $34 billion, between 2005 and 2018, according to estimates by the Pew Research Center. More than 1,800 newspapers closed between 2004...

    DENVER — A plan to help homeless people during the pandemic by letting them set up camp in a church parking lot has forced residents in an affluent neighborhood to question their progressive values and commitment to helping ease social ills. “When I bought in Park Hill, it wasn't because there was a homeless encampment one block from my front door,” said Jon Kinning, who lives a block away from the church. “If I wanted to live in downtown Denver and near homelessness in my face every day, having people sleep on my patio or go to the bathroom on...

    There’s a gin joint in Denver by the name of Bar Max, and the owner has been up and running for more than a month after the government shutdown orders were lifted. Getting out ahead of the curve, owner Marshall Smith has been requiring proof of vaccination to drink indoors at his establishment since he reopened. And now, after the confusing new guidelines issued by the CDC, he’s allowing customers to go maskless in the bar, though again, they have to prove they’ve been vaccinated. To hear both Mr. Smith and his customers sharing their stories with the local CBS...
