    Aye-ayes (Daubentonia madagascariensis) are native to Madagascar. No one knows precisely how many exist in the wild. The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) classifies the animals as endangered and estimates that more than half of their wild population has disappeared in the past three decades. As adults, aye-ayes are about the size of possums. They use their spindly fingers to tap on the bark of trees, aiming to spook wood-boring insects inside the tree so that they'll move. When the aye-ayes hear the telltale scuttle of a potential meal, the predators chew holes into the bark and fish...

    Denver is widely regarded to be among the more liberal major cities in the United States. But it's also home to Colorado Christian University, which the research website Niche just ranked the seventh-most-conservative American college — and it's among the fastest-growing, too. "We've had nine years of record enrollment at Colorado Christian University," says Jeff Hunt, CCU's vice president of public policy and director of the Centennial Institute, the branch that puts on the annual Western Conservative Summit. "And a lot of that has to do with the fact that we're unapologetically Christian and conservative. People know exactly what they're...

Elway failed to mention that the Broncos wanted Kaepernick to take a major pay cut.... ...Kaepernick seemingly responded to Elway's comments by retweeting a tweet comparing his career quarterback rating to Elway's rating:

    After all the sturm und drang gripping the nation over why Colin Kaepernick still hasn’t been given a starting QB position in the NFL and whether or not it was some sort of racist conspiracy, I was rather surprised to see this headline over at Bleacher Report. According to Broncos General Manager John Elway, Kaepernick actually had an offer for a quarterback job in hand but he turned it down. Of course, digging into the details of the story, it’s not as much of a game-changer as you might imagine. Denver Broncos general manager John Elway said Thursday that...

    The widespread assumption at this point, when it comes to the future of Colin Kaepernick, is he will not find work in the NFL moving forward. It's tough to get a gig when you're suing your potential employers! But according to Broncos VP of Football Ops John Elway on Thursday, Kaepernick COULD have a job if he wanted to. In other words, Elway blames Kaepernick for not taking the Broncos offer when it was on the table. "Colin had his chance here. We offered him a contract. He didn't take it," Elway said. "So, as I said it in my...

    DENVER -- Flaggers have returned to some crossings along the RTD A Line between Union Station and Denver International Airport. In June, the flaggers were removed, but they have returned as RTD tries to figure out a software problem that was discovered on a number of rail lines in the area. The flaggers have returned to the York, Steele, and Holly street crossings, a move that signifies RTD believes the automated gates are still not safe enough to operate without on-site supervision. ... RTD is only saying its contractor, Denver Transit Partners, is doing some updating and testing of the...

    A Denver mom says her 9-year-old son died by suicide in their home on Thursday after experiencing bullying in school. She is now sharing the story in hopes of shining a light on bullying and suicide, KDVR reports. Leia Pierce says bullying was a factor in the death of her son, Jamel Myles, who started fourth grade just last week. Over the summer, Jamel came out to his mother as gay, she said. "(H)e looked so scared when he told me. He was like, 'Mom I'm gay.' And I thought he was playing, so I looked back because I was...

    A nine-year-old boy has killed himself after enduring four days of homophobic bullying at school in Denver, Colorado, his mother says. Leia Pierce told KDVR-TV that her son, Jamel Myles, revealed to her over the summer that he was gay. She said Jamel wanted to go to school and tell his classmates because he was "proud" to be gay. Denver Public Schools (DPS) say crisis counsellors have been made available to students at Jamel's elementary school. The school system sent letters to families on Friday about the additional counselling services for students. The letter, addressed to Shoemaker families, says Jamel's...

    After nearly 15 years of planning, hundreds of public comments, and a handful of lawsuits, a page turned Friday morning for a 10-mile stretch of Interstate 70 in north Denver.A slate of prominent transportation officials and politicians, including Gov. John Hickenlooper, formally broke ground on the $1.2 billion "Central 70" Project that will remake that section of freeway that officials call the lifeblood of the quickly growing Denver metro area."Without infrastructure, you can't grow. That's just a fact of life," Hickenlooper said after the event. "It's really building the foundation for the next 50 years of economic development for Colorado."Critics...

    On August 9, Denver experienced its first triple homicide since the summer of 2016, when a drug deal went bad in Park Hill. On Thursday, three bodies were discovered near the RTD light-rail station on South Broadway near the I-25 overpass. And according to the Denver Police Department, there's an added dimension to these latest murders: The three victims were all homeless. The DPD has yet to announce the names of the three victims, their causes of death or any suspects in the crime. But the gravity of the murders and the fact that the victims were homeless has many...

    A man accused of shooting a Colorado Springs police officer in the head in a shootout early Thursday while free on bond was known to immigration enforcement officials, yet evaded deportation despite a string of crimes, court records show. Why Karrar Al Khammasi wasn’t deported was among the questions left unanswered Friday as his bond was revoked. Cem Duzel, the officer he is accused of shooting, remained hospitalized in critical condition. The 31-year-old Iraqi immigrant appears to have lived in the Pikes Peak region for at least five years, and he had at least nine contacts with police in that...

    Well, this is just insane. The Denver Post decided to print a letter to the editor that pretty much suggested President Donald J. Trump be executed for treason. The insanity stems from the recent press conference President Trump had with Vladimir Putin, which was arguably not one of the best moments of the Trump White House. At the same time, any legitimate criticism was lost due to liberal hysteria and media overreach, namely this whack job theory that the president committed treason (via Free Beacon): The Denver Post published a letter to the editor suggesting President Donald Trump should be executed...

    The Denver Post published a letter to the editor suggesting President Donald Trump should be executed for treason. The letter criticized the president and Sen. Cory Gardner (R., Colo.) following Trump's summit with Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland, and said Soviet spies Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, who passed atomic bomb secrets to Moscow, were executed for "far less." The letter, written by Suzanne Gagnon of Lakewood, was in response to the paper's editorial last week, which gave tepid praise of Gardner. The editorial argued the Republican senator "deserves credit" for taking a tough stance against Russia and sponsoring legislation to...

    My name is Roger. I lived in Denver for over 33 years. I voted every election against illegal immigration and against the marijuana that they brought with them to my country. The smell of people checking out of reality could be experienced all around Denver, especially from the freeways at highway speeds at I-70 and Colorado Blvd and at I-25 and Auraria Campus. I was a truck driver handling eighty thousand pounds of vehicle and merchandise at the time which made me very dangerous behind the wheel if not paying attention. As you know, a sleepy driver is more deadly...
