Gov. Jared Polis signs four bills, including property tax relief, after lawmakers wrap up special session

Gov. Jared Polis signs four bills, including property tax relief, after lawmakers wrap up special session Four of the seven bills passed by lawmakers during an emergency session aimed at softening property tax increases and providing other forms of relief to residents were signed into law Monday evening by Gov. Jared Polis, just hours after the legislature adjourned.The measures approved since Friday, in a session called after voters rejected Proposition HH this month, will affect nearly all Coloradans who are grappling with surging property taxes and a fast-rising cost of living. The owner of a typical $500,000 home will still see a significantly higher property tax bill early next year, but it will go up roughly half as much under the first measure signed by Polis.Income taxpayers will see a flat refund of about $800 under another new law, which follows the flat-refund model used last year for rebates mandated by the Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights instead of a tiered system that provides more to higher income earners.As many as 400,000 lower-income workers who qualify for the federal...

Nikola Jokic, Michael Malone ejected but Nuggets hang on to hand Pistons 12th consecutive loss DETROIT — Instead of gradually amassing five fouls to keep himself mostly sidelined, Nikola Jokic expedited the process this time.In the second game of a Rust Belt back-to-back in which Denver’s frustration with officiating stewed and simmered until it boiled over, Jokic followed Nuggets coach Michael Malone down the tunnel almost exactly one quarter after Malone was ejected for arguing calls early in a 107-103 Nuggets win against the Pistons.Denver (10-4) escaped a hectic finish to snap a four-game road losing streak and extend Detroit’s losing streak to 12 games. Reggie Jackson led the charge sans Jokic with 21 points, six assists and no turnovers in a mostly sloppy game. Denver turned it over 14 times, Detroit 18 times. Jackson scored a floater and-one to tie the Pistons at 97, gave the Nuggets a 103-101 lead with a driving layup and lobbed an assist for Aaron Gordon that turned into the go-ahead and-one with 1:33 left. Denver never relinquished that lead thanks...

Howell, Wilson reach milestones while leading defensive resurgence for Colorado State Colorado State redshirt junior linebacker Chase Wilson and junior defensive back Jack Howell reached milestones Saturday night against Nevada, but the two are more importantly leading a CSU defense that has played a big role in the team’s last two victories.In the Rams’ 30-20 victory against the Wolf Pack at Canvas Stadium, both Wilson and Howell topped 100 tackles for the season. It was Wilson’s first time reaching the century mark and Howell’s second.“Really, really proud of Chase going over 100 tackles in his first year starting at linebacker,” CSU head coach Jay Norvell said. “Jack has had a tremendous career here. We’re so proud of those guys.”Both players needed big games against Nevada to reach those milestones and both of them delivered. Howell had 12 tackles to push his season total to 106 while Wilson had 11 to give him 102. Wilson also had a pair of tackles for loss and a sack in the game.Not only did Howell top 100 for the second year in a row, but he is the first CSU de...

It was ridiculous.”  Once inside the Southwest terminal, long lines of passengers waiting to check in their bags awaits those just arriving at the airport.  Holiday travelers in the Southwest terminal at LAX on Nov. 20, 2023.

Amid 6-game losing streak, Steve Kerr says Warriors ‘need some practice time’ SAN FRANCISCO — Riding a six-game losing streak entering their matchup Monday night against the Houston Rockets, what the Golden State Warriors need, coach Steve Kerr said, is more practice.“We need some practice time and kind of sharpen some things up,” Kerr said before tipoff.The losing streak, longer than any they had last season, has been a trying stretch of basketball. Without Steph Curry for two games, and with Draymond Green missing his third straight Monday serving a five-game suspension, the Warriors’ offensive rating has sunk to fourth from the bottom of the league over the six-game skid.They entered Monday night at 6-8, in 10th place in the Western Conference.Kerr chalked up their early struggles to a feeling-out period, as he attempted to trim down his rotation.“The biggest thing with this team now is there hasn’t been separation in terms of the nine or 10 guys who are going to play night after night,” Kerr said. “By my count, if we’re...

It was literally an honest mistake and a mix-up.”Castlemont, which lost to McClymonds in las...
