"Under current case law, he has no case. Under New York law, you better put your blinds down. He’s lucky he wasn’t standing there buck naked."

Said a lawyer quoted in "Alex Rodriguez may have a tough time pursuing legal action over viral toilet pic" (NY Post). The photograph — taken of the retired baseball star when he was sitting on the toilet (which the NYT Post calls "turd base") was taken from the window of a Park Avenue office building that has a view into his apartment (where he lives with Jennifer Lopez). I remember blogging about the case the lawyer is referring to. There was an art photographer who'd caught images of people th...

Denver decriminalizing mushrooms

The rising national movement against drug prohibition took a major step forward on May 7. Voters in Denver, Colorado, narrowly passed a measure to decriminalize psychedelic mushrooms — effectively making them law enforcement’s lowest priority in the city. Signs around proclaiming support for Initiative 301, or I-301 as it became known, were an increasingly common sight in Denver leading up to the election, but still, the vote was close. The initiative passed by just 2,291 votes in a city of m...

Sakic Has the Avalanche Trending up Nicely

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Back in his Colorado Avalanche playing days, Joe Sakic’s approach was pretty much title or bust. As the team’s general manager, a similar feeling is beginning to develop. Sakic and the Avalanche took a little time for reflection following a Game 7 loss to San Jose in the second round. That page has been turned.

"Fake tough guys from the granola-paved streets of Portland" --- The Denver Post isn't buying the Trail Blazers act

It's not just the players on the Portland Trail Blazers and Denver Nuggets getting chippy with one another. Following the Portland Trail Blazers win over the Denver Nuggets in Game 6 on Thursday, Mark Kiszla of the Denver Post had a few less-than-friendly words to say about Rip City and their beloved Trail Blazers. Here's a few excerpts from his piece: On Evan Turner: "The Blazers' simmering disrespect of Denver got truly insulting: Turner, an end-of-rotation scrub for Portland, c...

Done In Denver

from Mike Chambers of the Denver Post, The Avalanche lost superstar forward Nathan MacKinnon to injury early in Game 7 at the SAP Center, and when MacKinnon returned late in the first period against the San Jose Sharks, Colorado trailed by two goals. But the resilient Avs never quit, appeared to tie it 2-2 in the second period and rallied to get within 3-2 in a Western Conference semifinal series-deciding game they can be proud of. They nearly forced overtime with two tremendous oppor...

How school resource officers in Southern California are connecting with students to prevent shootings, other crimes

As legislators in Sacramento and around the country work to prevent school shootings and protect students from active shooters, Southern California school police officers daily worry about that problem — and many other potential threats to student safety. The officers and deputies assigned to schools, called School Resource Officers or SROs, are tasked with generally keeping order, breaking up fights and dealing with problems like drug dealing, gang activity and bullying. The officers work to pr...

Denver Becomes First US City To Decriminalize Psychedelic Mushrooms

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Reason: In a surprise turn of events, a Denver ballot initiative to effectively decriminalize psychedelic mushrooms, previously thought to have failed, now appears to have narrowly passed after all. This would make the Mile High City the first in the U.S. to decriminalize psilocybin. If the unofficial final tally holds, Denver law enforcement will be directed to treat psychedelic mushrooms owned for personal possession as the lowest enforcement priority. ...

Series Tied At One Between The Colorado Avalanche And San Jose Sharks

from Mike Chambers of the Denver Post, The Avalanche, just as it did in the first-round playoff series against Calgary, answered a losing performance in Game 1 on the road to win Game 2 in the same hostile environment. On Sunday in a building they hadn’t won in since 2015, the Avs put together a workmanlike effort after a shoddy first period to defeat the San Jose Sharks 4-3 at SAP Center to even the Western Conference semifinal playoff series 1-1. Smooth-skating defenseman Tyson Barrie ...

Hanging Lake permits are going fast

Hanging Lake in Glenwood Canyon is one of Colorado’s most popular hiking destinations and it’s easy to know why — the lake’s waters are an incredible shade of turquoise and the waterfalls are hypnotic. But the beautiful natural scene that is now a National Natural Landmark has become way too appealing in the past few years, to the point where tourism was deteriorating the site’s ecological health. Visit Glenwood explained, “Over the years the popularity of the area has increased leading to v...

LITTLETON, Colo. (AP) — Denver-area public schools will be closed Wednesday as authorities search for a young Florida woman who flew to the city and bought a gun after becoming “infatuated” with the mass shooting at Columbine High School.

A Memorable First Game For Cale Makar

from Mike Chambers of the Denver Post, The script felt like total fiction, a dream made up for a college sophomore and a No. 8-seeded playoff team who played in different countries 24 hours earlier. Defenseman Cale Makar skated in the NCAA championship game in Buffalo on Saturday while the underdog Avalanche was preparing for Game 2 of its first-round series at Calgary. So what unfolded in Game 3 at the Pepsi Center had to have seemed surreal to the Avalanche and its sellout crowd...

Colorado Avalanche Can’t Score Against The Calgary Flames

from Mike Chambers of the Denver Post, Game 1 was won by Mike Smith, the Calgary Flames’ 37-year-old goalie. His teammates obviously played a role in defeating the Avalanche 4-0 late Thursday at the Scotiabank Saddledome, but Smith and the penalty killers in front of him were the clear-cut difference before Calgary scored two late goals in the final minutes of the third period. Smith outplayed Avs goalie Philipp Grubauer, who took a nine-game points streak (7-0-2) into the postsea...

The Colorado Avalanche Are Loaded For The 2019 NHL Draft

from Mike Chambers of the Denver Post, Tuesday’s NHL draft lottery in Toronto is bound to irritate Avalanche fans throughout North America if they don’t take the right approach. Which is, hope for the best (No. 1 pick) but prepare for the worst (No. 4). The worst isn’t that bad. No other team in the 31-team in the league is guaranteed to go into the June draft with a top-four pick. It’s just how it works. The Avs, who own the best chance at the No. 1 pick because they own Ottawa’s...

Nuggets fan reportedly calls referee 'racist' following Nikola Jokic ejection

Following Denver Nuggets star Nikola Jokic's ejection and his team's subsequent loss to the Washington Wizards on Sunday, a fan at the Pepsi Center “berated” referee James Capers, who is black, and called him “racist,” per the Denver Post.

There's been a spike in ER visits in Colorado following marijuana legalization, and edibles are doctors' biggest concern

A new study documents a sharp rise in emergency room visits linked with marijuana following legalization in Colorado. One of the key drivers of the ER trips appears to be edibles like weed brownies and cookies. Despite their meager sales, edibles represented a far higher proportion of weed-related ER visits compared against those for smoked marijuana.  Looking for a uniquely risky way to consume marijuana? Try an edible. That's the take-home message of a new study of weed-related emergency ro...

Denver Post Yanks Gardner Endorsement After His National Emergency Capitulation

The editorial board for the Denver Post rescinded its 2014 endorsement of Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO) Thursday after the senator sided with President Donald Trump on the national emergency declaration. “Gardner has been too busy walking a political tightrope to be a leader,” the board writes. “He has become precisely what we said in our endorsement he would not be: ‘a political time-server interested only in professional security.’” “These are extraordinary times,” it continues. “This is a bogus...
