    Indiana governor declares public health emergency due to HIV epidemic

    INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — Indiana is declaring a public health emergency in one county due to an epidemic of HIV. Gov. Mike Pence issued the order Thursday for Scott County, which has 79 confirmed cases of HIV since mid-December. The county averages about five new cases a year. “Scott County is facing an epidemic of HIV, but this is not a Scott County problem; this is an Indiana problem,” Pence said in a news release. All the cases in the current […]

    Man who stole taxi, assaulted driver, ran over pedestrian gets 8 years

    DENVER — A Denver man who plead guilty to attacking a taxi driver, fleeing in that driver’s taxi and plowing over a pedestrian in the process was sentenced to 8 years in prison Friday. The incident took place in the early morning hours of March 16, 2014, when Curt Glinton, now 24, attacked a taxi driver and a bystander in the area of 44th Avenue and Tejon Street following a heated argument regarding a cab fare. Glinton then forced his way into the driver’s seat of the taxi and […]

    Wilkins family rejects donation after State Rep. calls baby cut from womb ‘act of God’

    LONGMONT, Colo. — State Rep. Gordon Klingenschmitt refused to apologize Thursday after calling the death of an unborn Longmont child who was cut out of a pregnant woman’s stomach an ‘act of God.’ On Friday, the family of Michelle Wilkins, the victim in the bizarre and tragic case, refunded a $1,000 donation from Klingenschmitt, R-Colorado Springs, that was intended to help fund Wilkins’ recovery. It was unclear if the often-controversial Klingenschmitt made the donation before or after he made the polarizing remarks on his evangelical YouTube […]

    Mysterious piano appears on summit of narrow trail in Santa Monica Mountains

    SANTA MONICA, Calif. — The Santa Monica hills are apparently alive with the sound of music. How the source of sound got up the hill, however, became an entirely separate mystery — one that seemed to have been solved Friday. On Thursday, hikers flocked to the so-called Santa Monica Mountains — clearly some Coloradans would dispute this particular 1,500-foot overlook’s status as a “mountain” — to behold, ponder and even sit down a play the upright piano that mysteriously appeared earlier in the […]

    Spouses, nanny of victim, Columbine survivor retained for theater shooting jury

    CENTENNIAL, Colo. — Jury selection in the Aurora theater shooting case saw an unprecedented moment Monday morning. It set the tone for an uncanny day overall, and Arapahoe County District Court Judge Carlos Samour Jr. summed it up succinctly. “I don’t think I’ve ever seen a husband and wife end up in the same jury pool before,” Samour said. “Then again, I’ve never issued 9,000 jury summonses for a trial before.” But the duo didn’t just end up in the […]

    Broncos sign defensive lineman Vance Walker to 2-year deal

    DENVER — The Denver Broncos made an effort on Thursday to bolster their defensive line, a unit that also lost a familiar face Thursday. That effort was personified in Vance Walker. The free agent defensive lineman signed a two-year deal with the Broncos Thursday, which was expected to be valued at $4 million. The team referred to Walker as a defensive end, which is an important distinction considering Terrance Knighton, a standout defensive tackle for the Broncos the past two seasons, signed a […]

    McDonalds plans to add kale to menu; will it be a hit?

    DENVER — Looking for some kale in that Shamrock Shake from McDonald’s? It’s not going to happen in time for St. Patrick’s Day next week. But maybe in 2016? That’s what one Wall Street firm is suggesting. Janney Capital Markets restaurant analysts wrote in a report Monday that “one of our industry sources indicates that McDonald’s U.S. plans to roll out kale as an ingredient in its restaurants at some point in the not-too-distant future.” One of the analysts, Mark […]
