Denver is going upscale. A 50-story building is set to grace (and change) our skyline. It's a swank Four Seasons hotel and condominium project at 14th and Arapahoe, across from the Teatro Hotel. Completion is set for 2007.

Colorado Congressman Scott McInnis announced last year he would not seek re-election. After the announcement, he paid his wife with campaign funds to serve as his campaign manager. Democrats and Project Common Cause say it may be illegal. Even if legal, they say, it is unorthodox and inappropriate.

The Denver Divas, a social and networking group for young professional women in Denver, held their monthly "meeting" Tuesday evening at Mao Asian Bistro in Cherry Creek North.

If the exit polls are to be believed, George W. Bush's share of the Latino vote in Colorado was the lowest of all of the states with large Latino populations -- a mere 30 percent.

It seems like every election produces at least one extremely close result. In 2002 it was the 7th Congressional District race that was decided by 121 votes. That seems like a landslide compared to the election in State House District 23 in Jefferson County, where Republican incumbent Ramey Johnson is holding a four vote lead over Democrat Gwyn... MORE
