Denver Public Library book sale

The Denver Public Library Friends Foundation annual Summer Used Book Sale will take place Wednesday, June 20 through Saturday, June 23. The sale is held in the Conference Center at the Denver Central Library, 14th Ave. and Broadway, and features over 60,000 items—including children’s books, nonfiction and fiction books, along with CDs, DVD and audio books—all at bargain prices starting at under $1. The annual summer sale is sponsored by the Denver Public Library Friends Foundation and raises more than $45,000 for several library programs and services. Books and materials sold come from both private donations as well as items that have been retired from the library’s collection.

CU and School of Mines students compete

Colorado Corn Administrative Committee is proud to sponsor the University of Colorado-Denver’s 2018-2019 Lynx Motorsports race team. These students are predominately Mechanical Engineering majors, and will be competing in an International Formula SAE race in Lincoln, Nebraska starting on June 20th with a racecar that runs on E85 (70-85 percent ethanol) alternative fuel. Lynx Motorsports is one of two teams from Colorado; the other is from Colorado School of Mines. Lynx motorsports will be running their car on E85 for the second straight year because they were pleased with the horsepower of this high-octane fuel especially with the mandatory intake air restrictor.

Education construction projects approved

The Colorado State Board of Education on Wednesday approved $447 million for 35 school construction projects across Colorado from the Capital Construction Assistance Fund for the Building Excellent Schools Today (BEST) grant program. The 2018-19 award is the largest ever amount approved for the program that began in 2008. Approximately $85 million of the 2018 awards will be funded through cash grants provided by income earned from the Colorado State Land Board, marijuana excise taxes, spillover from the Colorado Lottery and interest on the assistance fund. Applicants will contribute $74 million in matching funds. Another $190 million is through lease-purchase grants from the state. Financing will be repaid with future assistance fund revenues. Applicants will contribute $98 million in matching money.

Our Government

White House


President Donald J. Trump announced his intent to nominate the following individuals to key positions in his Administration: Shannon Lee Goessling of Florida, to be the Director of the Office of Violence Against Women at the Department of Justice; Daniel Simmons of Virginia, to be an Assistant Secretary for Energy, Efficiency, and Renewable Energy at the Department of Energy; Irving Bailey of Florida, to be a Member of the Board of Directors of the Overseas Private Investment Corporation for a remainder of a three-year term expiring December 17, 2018 and an additional three-year term expiring December 17, 2021.

Colorado Governor

Gov. John Hickenlooper released a joint statement with the Colorado Immigrant Rights Coalition calling on the Trump administration to reverse the cruel practice of family separation. “Purposely separating children from their parents is immoral and un-American. Immigration enforcement is a necessary function of our federal government, but it is beyond comprehension that the Trump administration is using these families as pawns to deter immigration. We urge the administration to stop this cruel practice. If the White House won’t act, Congress should. No political end is worth destroying families and traumatizing children.”

Denver Mayor

Mayor Hancock on Denver’s Mobility Action Plan, “Our streets are truly our most publicly held asset and their connections literally weaves us together. This Mobility Action Plan is a bold and deliberate effort to accelerate changes in the near term, while advancing the city’s mobility policies and longer-term planning efforts.
