Cora the accelerant-sniffing dog puts her nose to the grindstone for Thursday’s construction fire in Denver

When the charred buildings near 20th Avenue and Federal Boulevard were deemed safe for fire investigators to occupy, 2-year-old black lab Cora was on the case.

No one was injured, but four people were evacuated from one nearby house. It took around three hours to extinguish the fire that started around 2 a.m. and quickly engulfed the seven-unit buildings at 1920 and 1930 Grove St.

WeCAN MEMBER VOTE: Proposed updates to the WeCAN Bylaws

The WeCAN Board of Directors has been volunteering their time to get the West Colfax Association of Neighbors Bylaws updated. The core change to the bylaws is to be more inclusive by enabling online voting. We believe this will allow us to get more input and participation from our members when important issues come up in West Colfax. We realize that many residents and business owners are too busy to attend general meetings, but their input is nevertheless very important to us.  In addition, several other changes have been made such as revising our purpose, removing unneeded language, and further defining voting requirements.

A very thoughtful piece about a plan that could effect Colorado's taxpayers now and in the future.

    Why doesn't the Winter Olympics exploratory committee comply with the Sunshine Law? - Colorado Freedom of Information Coalition
    The city says the Denver Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games Exploratory Committee, formed by Mayor Michael Hancock, is not bound by the Colorado Open Meetings Law and, therefore, it can meet however it sees fit. But there is a solid legal argument that the state's open meetings law indeed does apply to the Winter Olympics exploratory committee.
