The Home Front: Urgency on homelessness, victory for fracking and a real-life “The Night Of”
The Grand Junction Daily Sentinel has a piece about a local disappearance-and-death trial into which attorneys are introducing an alternate suspect. (Just finish watching HBO’s “The Night Of”? Read this one.)
The Longmont Times-Call fronts a story about three service providers for homeless and low-income locals now consolidating under one roof.
The Loveland Reporter-Herald reports that local school district operations manager Dan Maas and his wife were killed in a crash, “leaving the district reeling over the loss of a ‘superstar,’ a ‘man of great integrity,’ ‘a visionary.’”
Steamboat Today has a story about how the city is “sniffing out” ways to make Steamboat Springs more dog friendly.
The Fort Collins Coloradoan reports how the city might put up a local ballot measure for the November election asking city voters if they “meant what they said in 2010 when approving the Keep Fort Collins Great sales and use tax.” Yes, this is a TABOR thing.
The Boulder Daily Camera fronts a big feature about how the city has “agreed on urgency” but varies on the approach to solve a local homelessness issue that has become an increasing point of local concern this year.
The Durango Herald reports on a group that protested after local District Attorney Thom DeLoux chose not to file charges against law enforcement officers who shot and killed a Park County man during an eviction.
The Denver Post fronts a failed effort by anti-fracking activists to get two anti-fracking measures on the November ballot for statewide voters. “The setback represents a major blow to environmentalists, who tried in 2014 and again this year to use the Colorado ballot to put new limits on hydraulic fracturing — or fracking — a procedure in which water, sand and chemicals are pumped into the ground to extract oil and gas.”
The Gazette shows everyone what that crazy hail storm looked like in Colorado Springs yesterday. Spoiler: It looked like winter already.
