Election activists have some primary problems with Colorado's system

Categories: Politics

Unaffiliated voter, are you sorry you didn't get a chance to vote for Tom Tancredo?
Colorado's primary was a month ago, and the candidates who triumphed in that round are racing toward the November 4 election. But 35 percent of the active voters in Colorado had no real say because they are unaffiliated. And although a voter can affiliate with a party in order to vote in a party's primary, that's not a fair solution, says Gwen Ballard -- an active and definitely unaffiliated voter.

Kelsey Grammer to sister's killer at parole hearing: "I live with tragedy every day"

Categories: Colorado Crimes

Kelsey Grammer during an interview with Oprah Winfrey last year. More images plus video and audio below.
Actor Kelsey Grammer visited Colorado earlier this week, but he wasn't in the state where he once maintained a ski home for pleasure. Quite the opposite, in fact. He appeared via video conference from Denver at a Buena Vista parole hearing for Freddie Glenn, a man convicted of killing Grammer's younger sister, Karen, and two others in Colorado Springs circa 1975. Glenn had asked for parole, but while Grammer offered forgiveness, he stopped short of endorsing that Glenn be freed. During his testimony, Grammer said, "I live with tragedy every day of my life." Photos, audio and video below.

Update: Clarkson Street group home to appeal permit revocation

The Bennet-Field mansion at 740 Clarkson, bought in 2011 for $700,000.
Update below: The Colorado Court of Appeals has overruled a Denver judge's decision to allow Open Door Ministries to operate a treatment program for recovering addicts in an historic mansion on Clarkson Street -- the latest twist in a long-running zoning battle in the neighborhood that was the subject of my 2011 feature "Meet the Neighbors." ODM now has only a few weeks to either appeal the decision to the Colorado Supreme Court or make drastic changes to its Lighthouse boarding home, which neighbors contend was started with an improperly issued permit, one that the appeals court now says must be revoked.
