Pueblo voters will not be deciding the fate of the Christopher Columbus statue that has become the center of weekly controversy. Council members, including the two who proposed the inclusion on the November ballot, all voted against the measure. The council felt the ballot measure would further divide the community.

District 60 teachers approved, by a 94% margin, a new one-year contract which was adopted by the D60 Board of Education during their regular August meeting. The key measure is a 2.2% pay increase in the form of an experience step.

The agent wrote the affidavit to persuade a federal judge to grant a search warrant to seize and search Valencia's cell phone. The judge issued search warrants for the agent to search phones to obtain records of calls between Valencia, Camacho, and Eligio Johnny Camacho III, the father of Eligio Lee Camacho.

The affidavit goes on to state that there were text messages and phone calls among them pertaining to illegal drug activity.

Valencia said he never gave Johnny Camacho 'a head’s up about the cops coming,' according to the affidavit. 'Valencia said he heard that Johnny Camacho was a drug trafficker, but he was never involved in any kind of drug trafficking with him.'

The officer told investigators that running the plate information 'was wrong,' the affidavit states.

Since July 27 no one has died from COVID-19 in Pueblo County. There were, however, 49 new cases reported by the Pueblo Department of Public Health and Environment last Friday. Those cases occurred since last Monday.

That brings Pueblo County’s total number of positive and probable cases to 858.

There have been 15,421 coronavirus tests conducted to date here.

Statewide, the number of people being hospitalized for confirmed COVID-19 was at 134 on Friday evening. The lowest that number has gotten since the pandemic began was 126 on June 27.

Pueblo County passed 84 cases in a two-week period over the weekend which is the threshold granted by the state for the county last month.

At stake is the variance issued to the county. Passing that number can lead to a forced change of the plan. The Pueblo Department of Public Health and Environment are trying to get a jump on any state action by beginning a mitigation plan.

The state has a risk stratification chart which ranks the risk of activities from high to low. Among the highest risks outlined in the chart are bars, nightclubs, gyms, and large gatherings.

Pueblo County's variance pertains to increases in the permitted size of outdoor and indoor activities with guidance for gathering sizes, houses of worship, gyms, theaters, bowling alleys, indoor malls, bars, wineries, tasting rooms, distilleries, graduation

ceremonies, libraries, private membership organizations, and entertainment and recreation including youth and adult league and recreational ball parks, dog parks, skating rinks, museums and race tracks.

Colorado State University Pueblo had its highest summer enrollment numbers since 2013 this summer, despite the uncertainty brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, school officials said Thursday.

Summer enrollment increased by about 20% over the previous year. This year CSU Pueblo enrolled 1,252 students for summer courses – the highest since 2013, which was 1,344.

District Attorney Jeff Chostner ruled that deadly force used by Deputy Jeffrey Alfonso was justified because suspect Jesse Cedillo appeared to raise a gun in his right hand as he moved toward the deputy.

Cedillo was shot and killed on March 14 when officers got a report of an armed man in a stolen car. Cedillo also almost ran over officers with the stolen car before he hit a pole.

Chostner, in his report, said that based on the facts of Tenth Judicial District Critical Incident Team investigators, the shooting appears to be justified based on the fears and threat of great bodily injury posed to the deputy.

State Sen. Larry Crowder, R-Alamosa, has received the Marvin Meyers Lifetime Achievement award from the United Veteran Coalition of Colorado, his office announced this week. The award was given to Crowder for decades of distinguished service to veterans and veteran causes
