    Looking for orange on ‘United in Orange Friday’ in Denver

    DENVER — An official mayoral proclamation created  “United in Orange Friday” as a way for Broncos fans to show their support. But you wouldn’t guess by looking around the 16th Street Mall that fans are standing solidly by their team that takes on the Indianapolis Colts Sunday. “I did not get the memo I was supposed to be wearing orange,” says Donald Ferguson III, who recently moved to Denver from Florida. It seems most everyone is united in every color–but […]

    New $52 billion plan would reduce Denver’s traffic congestion

    DENVER — It’s a common and annoying fact of life that often no one rushes home during rush hour in metro Denver. But a new plan announced today by the Reason Foundation would alleviate the crush of congestion. The plan would cost $52-billion. See the full plan here. The current long-term plan costs $133-billion and some say won’t solve our traffic troubles. “It’s pretty bad around Denver. I-70 sucks. Horrible,” says Eric Thurston, who drives a lot for a living […]

  • Freezing weather means trouble for some residents

    DENVER — First came the cold, then the floods. Homeowners in Colorado ring in 2015 with busted water pipes. And it’s keeping Denver firefighters busy. “It was loud. It was loud,” says Claudia Alvidrez, a resident of Nob Hill Condos at 2929 W. Floyd Ave. She awoke this morning to the sounds of rushing water–not from the shower–but the ceiling. “I heard this noise and my whole is full of water and it’s cold,” she says. Denver firefighters come in […]

  • Record-shattering cold takes a toll on Colorado heating systems

    HENDERSON, Colo.  — Repair crews work overtime, helping families turn the heat back on — including one family in Henderson. Experts say the only real way to make sure your heat doesn’t break is to do routine maintenance–like changing your furnace filter every 90 days and doing a complete thorough cleaning every third year. “Hey, how’s it going?” asks Sid Sanchez, as he enters a home in the 9400 block of E. 106th Ave. “Freezing!” says the woman who answers the […]

    CDOT launches tire safety program, ‘Operation TireSafe’

    DENVER — CDOT launches a program to promote tire safety after too many drivers were spinning their wheels in the High Country. On a single day last year, CDOT found 86-percent of vehicles stranded on I-70 had bald or worn tires. So CDOT is taking action to keep the wheels of transportation moving forward in the  mountains. It’s as common as snow in the mountains.   The flakes fall–and traffic stalls. “We’ve all been stuck in those 2,3,4 hour trips […]

    Colorado becomes first state to fund research to show benefits of medical marijuana

    DENVER — Colorado became a pioneer in funding research that shows the benefits of medical marijuana Wednesday. The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment approved more than $8 million to pay for several research projects. The money to fund the medical research comes from application fees from medical marijuana patients. Some of them say using the money this way is nothing less than stealing. And now they’re suing the Board of Health to stop them. The Turner family comes […]
