NEWS, APRIL 24TH

ASPEN, Colo. (AP) – The U.S. Forest Service has posted warning
signs around a cabin near Conundrum Hot Springs, warning that
there’s a bunch of frozen, dead cows inside. The cows wandered into
the cabin over the winter and died when they couldn’t escape.
Rangers are trying to figure out how to best get rid of the
carcasses — possibly by using explosives on the cabin.

DENVER (AP) – The Colorado House has given preliminary approval
to a measure that would increase penalties for leaving the scene of
a car accident involving serious injuries. Supporters say the law
would help police catch people who are driving under the influence
and cause accidents. The stricter penalty would increase fines and
prison sentences for leaving the scene of a crash.

DENVER (AP) – A bill that would allow illegal immigrants in
Colorado to attend college at a discounted tuition rate was
narrowly approved by the House Education Committee yesterday. It
now moves to another House committee. A similar measure failed in
the full House last year. The bill has already passed the
Democratic-led Senate.

DENVER (AP) – Colorado is preparing to tap a law that allows a
water trust to lease water from willing water users to preserve
wildlife and plants. The Natural Resources Conservation Service is
warning stream flows are likely to be low across the state this
summer. The law was passed in 2003 to protect waterfowl, wildlife,
fish, bugs and plants.
