What was that we were saying about #ACAB?
Former Adams County sheriff, top officials accused of falsifying records
Rick Reigenborn, a former sheriff for the county, Tommie McLallen, a former undersheriff and Mickey Bethel, a former division chief, face four felony charges, including forgery and attempt to influence a public servant, court records show...
Both McLallen and Bethel “retired while under investigation.”

About 120 people lived here permanently, but it is clear that many others came here for special events or ceremonies. See the walls that enclosed rooms (of about 150), but also surrounded 75 gathering places - courtyards and plazas.
Note the ruined opening to an upper alcove. There were nine storage rooms here used as granaries, up where it was cool and dry. Access was by wooden ladders.

[Rahbar] Sam Presti on NBA champion Nuggets: “What I see there is a result of commitment. Murray and Jokic are committed to winning with the Nuggets. The organization is committed to winning with those guys.” This mutual commitment is what the team + players look to be building in OKC. https://www.rawchili.com/3087016/

[Klis] Broncos are bringing in former Saints WR Tre’Quan Smith for a visit/physical tonight/tomorrow. Smith played 5 seasons for Saints, 4 for Sean Payton. Had combined 66 catches, 825 yards, 7 TDs in 2020-21. #9sports https://www.rawchili.com/3086248/
We’re taking it slow-ish on our way back home from tour, and picked a route on which we hoped we’d see some #foliage and HOLY MOLY our drive through #Colorado today exceeded every hope I had. The photos are gorgeous, but they honestly don’t do justice to the expanse of beauty we encountered today. I’m so grateful to have gotten to experience this.
[Stevens] Sean Payton said today was a “really, really good practice.” Added they need to follow it up with another good practice tomorrow. https://www.rawchili.com/3086070/
The orphan well program spent a record $10.2 million in 2023 and completed plugging on 61 wells, but recently saw a “surge” with 200 new abandoned oil and gas wells.
“We can all agree that the collective goal and the collective best outcome is when operators plug oil and gas wells at the end of their useful life,” Murphy (chair of oil&gas agency) said.
Well ... actually, the best outcome is to leave the oil in the ground ...
Xcel Energy is proposing building three new methane gas plants in #Colorado
There's a rally tomorrow, "House Plants, Not Gas Plants" where we'll deliver a petition of over 2,000 signatures and give out house plants to folks who attend. 🌱

Same here, I have excellent sheets and I like to sleep in perfectly flat sheets so I tuck in the top sheet really well so it's not slipping around. Then when I wake up I pull that sheet tight while I'm in it, get out, straighten the thin blanket and then the duvet, tighten the sheet again and it's flat. #Colorado is dusty so keeping it tight is important!
This is an interesting one. Leaky mines spewing methane. Shocking amounts discovered. Now that we know how bad they are, does it justify new industrial development for cleanup?

BTW, you might need to be looking up more to improve your #MentalHealth. Works well for me. Mondays do not have to be blue.
When I saw this ad, I wondered what the spread was for USC vs Colorado next week.
HAHAHA anyway this goes, I win.

Deion Sanders and Colorado were brought back to reality by Oregon. And it wasn’t pretty.
Oregon's 3rd string was better than Colorado's 1st string. Heisman, my ass... they shouldn't have even had the 6pts.
No. 19 Colorado completely dominated in 42-6 loss to No. 10 Oregon
The 1st 3min of this hilarity is everything that's wrong with sports talk. 100% disingenuous hype... All for the clicks.
Losing 42-6 to a real football team & the only reason for the 6 was it was in the final 2min of the game against Oregon walk-ons. Should've been a shut out.
Am I a hater? Especially when you call a loud mouth pretender "America's team"? HELL YEAH.

A judge is scheduled to hear a similar effort to keep Trump off the ballot in #Colorado on Oct. 30.
3-0 Oregon vs 3-0 Colorado.
Damn. ABSOLUTELY SAVAGE.

That's why it was so great when #Colorado passed the nation's first wheelchair right to repair bill last year:
California actually just passed *two* right to repair bills; the other one was SB-271, which mirrors Colorado's HB22-1031:
This is big! It's momentum! It's a start!
Dance of the Aspens - This stand of aspen trees somewhere in Colorado appears to be dancing due to the curved trunks caused by heavy snows when they were saplings. Such a beautiful location, and one of my favorite autumn images.

One of the local Wireless #Internet Service Providers, #WISP, is overstating their service as 100/20. This is really annoying as it messes up all the #FCC and state #broadband maps. In reality, everyone is lucky to get 25/3 with them and given the terrain in #Colorado, like where I live, service is not even possible due to line of sight.
I want #fiber!
Some states — #Colorado, #Montana, #NewMexico, #Washington and #Wyoming — rolled back 50 percent or more of their progress since 2000. In #Oregon and #Nevada, wildfire smoke has completely erased their gains....
a single day of unhealthy smoke — in the “red” level on the federal government’s color-coded scale — gave the hospitals he was studying in central Oregon a 41 percent chance of exceeding their capacity....
University of Montana toxicologist Christopher Migliaccio tracked residents who lived through that smoke and found they showed significant decreased lung function one and two years afterward..."
@glightly I am angry for and with you. Here in #Boulder #Colorado - also a liberal college town, pro-climate, pro-environment, supposedly 'bike friendly'. Few racks, if they exist are awful, also doling out public space to for-profit corps (just expanded Lime, great for visiting students and tourists, crap for us townies).
I feel your pain. It can be truly infuriating
Forced Labor Continues in #Colorado, Years After Vote to End #Prison #Slavery
Coloradans voted in 2018 to amend their state constitution to ban forced labor in prison. Years later, incarcerated people are still being punished for refusing work assignments.
She broke the law of public indecency with her lewd behavior and should be registered as a sex offender!!!!! #LockHerUp
> The fallout from Rep. Lauren #Boebert's humiliating ouster from a #Denver theater after she aggravated fellow playgoers by vaping, dancing in her seat, taking flash pictures and engaging in mutual groping with her date may not be over.

I have ethical concerns about wolf introduction in #Colorado.
We live in a secluded valley backing up to wilderness with healthy herds of domestic and wild game animals.
Wolves are an apex predator. They will flourish and multiply here.
Sadly, then we will have to start hunting and killing wolves to control their numbers.
Where are the humane ethics in that? It seems to me that Wolf Introduction is merely ‘stocking’.
