    DENVER (KDVR) — A Texas couple believes they were spied on while having sex in their Denver hotel room. Now, Nathan and Christina Parks have filed a lawsuit in Denver District Court against DoubleTree by Hilton for invasion of privacy. The married couple, both 35, were staying at a Double Tree by Hilton in the Stapleton neighborhood in September 2019. When Nathan opened the door on the morning of Sept. 11, 2019, he said he discovered the door’s peephole laying on the floor of the hallway outside his room. “When I opened the door and I looked at it from...

    "For all her notoriety, Clark remains something of a mystery to even those closest to her. Evidence discovered at her home the day of her funeral raised the possibility Clark fabricated portions of her past, giving rise to a new element of the Georgie legend," reports GrandCanyonTreks.org. "While the theory is discounted by several associates, there is a faction of friends who are puzzled by connections that suggest Clark was in fact Bessie Hyde, who vanished in 1928 along with her husband, Glen Hyde, while the Idaho couple were on a honeymoon adventure floating the Grand Canyon in a wooden...
  • Colorado among the states that share names, addresses of COVID-19 cases with law enforcement

    05/19/2020 6:29:25 PM PDT · by sicsempertyrannisDenver · 33 replies
    Public health officials in Colorado are sharing health information, including names and addresses, of people who have tested positive for COVID-19 with first responders. The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment told KRDO when conducting work as a public health authority, state and local public health agencies are not bound to HIPPA laws. In that scenario, agencies can provide patient health information about those who test positive for COVID-19. In Colorado, health officials say they can share that information with law enforcement, paramedics, and other first responders. Public health officials in at least two-thirds of U.S. states are sharing...

    The problem with assessing political candidates is you never really know what they're like until they get ahold of power. And by then, of course, it's too late. The decent ones wield power with restraint and humility. They understand the limits have their own wisdom -- human wisdom -- and they also understand the inevitability of unintended consequences, which are the rule. They know they won't be in charge forever, and so they tread lightly. But the bad ones, they go crazy. And the more power they get, the crazier they go. Power is the drug they've been searching for....

    CHEYENNE, Wyo. – Exotic dancers are now getting back to work at a gentleman’s club that straddles the Colorado-Wyoming border. Although some of the property is in Colorado, The Den is technically in Wyoming. “When they reopened the restaurants and bars in Wyoming we were super excited because it’s been very difficult for us,” owner Kim Chavez told FOX31. “It’s been horrible to go almost three months without any kind of income,” Kim’s husband and co-owner Greg Chavez said. Wyoming has seen significantly fewer COVID-19 cases and deaths than Colorado. The state allowed bars and restaurants to reopen to in-person...
  • Colorado's Democrat Governor Calls Out CDC For Inflating Coronavirus Deaths

    PJ Media ^ | 05/18/2020 | Matt Margolis
    On Saturday, Colorado’s Health Department revised their official coronavirus death count downward to 878 from 1,150 as of Friday—a stunning reduction of 23.7 percent. The reason for this correction was that anyone who died from other causes while testing positive for the coronavirus was counted as a coronavirus-related death. In the wake of this revision, Jared Polis, the Democrat governor of Colorado, started pushing back against the official coronavirus death counts, saying even those of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are inflated from including people who tested positive for the coronavirus but died of other causes. “The...

    The governors of Georgia and Colorado have at least one thing in common. They both took steps to reopen their states' economies in late April amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. But for some reason, the media's coverage of Gov. Brian Kemp (R., Ga.) has been slightly different from the media's coverage of Gov. Jared Polis (D., Colo.). Kemp, for example, has been accused of experimenting with "human sacrifice." So reads the headline of an April 29 article published in the Atlantic, which accuses Kemp of turning Georgia residents into "unwilling canaries in an invisible coal mine, sent to find out...

    From the start of the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic, one of the concerns was how the death count was being tallied. White House Coronavirus Task Force coordinator Dr. Deborah Birx said last month that the United States is taking a "liberal approach" to counting coronavirus deaths. Instead of only counting those who died as a result of the virus, they are counting everyone who died who had tested positive, even if their death was unrelated to the virus. "The intent is right now if someone dies with COVID-19, we're counting that as a COVID-19 death," Birx said at the time. "There...

    Colorado has made a stunning and significant change to the way it counts COVID-19 deaths that reduced the statewide figure from more than 1,000 to 878, according to a report. The change came after Colorado’s Department of Public Health admitted that its COVID-19 death toll was counting those who tested positive for the coronavirus but had died of other causes, Fox 31 Denver reported late Friday. The department now says 1,150 Coloradoans who died had COVID-19 but only 878 of those deaths were “due to” COVID-19.

    A Colorado man who died of alcohol poisoning had his death classified as due to the coronavirus, possibly shedding light on a skewed virus death toll in the state, according to a report on Thursday. Sebastian Yellow, 35, was found dead by police on May 4. Montezuma County Coroner George Deavers later determined that his death was due to acute alcohol poisoning. His blood-alcohol content measured in at .55. The legal limit in the state is .08. But before Deavers signed the death certificate, Colorado health officials reportedly categorized Yellow’s death as being due to COVID-19.

    The Montezuma County Coroner’s Office is disputing the state’s claim of a third fatal case of the coronavirus in Cortez, saying the person died of alcohol poisoning. County Coroner George Deavers said the person tested positive for COVID-19, but an investigation by him and the pathologist determined the cause of death was ethanol toxicity. The person’s blood-alcohol content was 0.55, or almost seven times the legal driving limit of 0.08 in Colorado, Deavers said. A BAC of 0.3 is considered lethal. “COVID was not listed on the death certificate as the cause of death. I disagree with the state for...

    RIFLE,Colo.(KKCO)-- Earlier this week Shooters Grill in Rifle reopened for dine-in service, which is against the state’s safer-at-home order. Unlike Mesa County, the Governor has not approved Garfield County for dine-in eating, which means they are only supposed to provide curbside pick-up and delivery. Owner Lauren Boebert, who is also a candidate for the Third Congressional District in Colorado, told us the rule is unconstitutional. She opened up last weekend for dine-in service at 30% capacity. Boebert was initially served with a cease and desist order Tuesday afternoon by law enforcement officials.

    GRAND JUNCTION, Colorado. – Shooters Grill in Rifle received a cease and desist order from the Garfield County Public Health Department and the Rifle Chief of Police on Tuesday after reopening its dining room against guidelines from the Garfield County Health Department. Shooters began opening its dining room at 30% capacity on Saturday and has served hundreds of customers so far. Owner Lauren Boebert decided to go against guidance from the City of Rifle, the Garfield County Public Health Department and County Commissioners by opening up the dining room. The restaurant prides itself on being a safe place to eat...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Supreme Court is set on Wednesday to consider a dispute involving whether “electors” in the complex Electoral College system that decides the winner of U.S. presidential elections are free to disregard laws directing them to back the candidate who prevails in their state’s popular vote. If enough electors do so, it could upend an election. The nine justices will hear two closely watched cases - one from Colorado and one from Washington state - less than six months before the Nov. 3 election in which presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden challenges Republican President Donald Trump. The...

    Senate forecast is out and right now Dems have a (somewhat) clear advantage to take control. Here goes: Arizona: McSally hasn’t led a single poll. Trump trails Biden in most polls too so she can’t count on coattails. Dem gain. Colorado: Gardner is down double digits and Trump will Lose CO by double digits. This one is off the board. Dem gain. Maine: Collins is struggling in polling but she knows how to win in Maine. We’ll see. Currently a toss up. Georgia: Internal GOP polling just released shows Biden in the LEAD, albeit within the margin of error. Perdue...

  • Over 70% of California’s Economy Has Reopened, Gov. Gavin Newsom Says

    Over 70% of California’s economy has reopened with limitations, Gov. Gavin Newsom said Monday during his daily update on the state’s response to #COVID-19 “I know 70% is not 100%, and I recognize that ‘with modifications’ means ‘with restrictions,’ and ‘with restrictions’ means a struggle for businesses to get back where they were pre-pandemic,” Newsom said. Last Friday, the state moved into the next phase of reopening its economy by allowing some nonessential retailers - including clothing, music, toy, sporting goods and book stores - to reopen for curbside pickup. Still, the impact of the pandemic on the economy has...
