Alright alright. Today we’ve got a Denver tech company embroiled in the Clinton email saga, the business of sports and a crazy chase in Boulder, among other items.

The Clinton saga:

Platte River Networks (of Denver) hosted the Clinton family’s private email server. Sounds like a sweet gig, until the feds come knocking. The company cooperated with the FBI, but it hasn’t been so helpful to a congressional investigation, which is why it just got subpoenaed. (DP)

We’ve got a look at Tim Kaine’s visit to Lakewood yesterday. (Denverite)

Sports business:

Great Outdoors Colorado has collected close to $1 billion of money from lottery-ticket sales, which it spends on wildlife and the outdoors. Now the state auditor wants to take a look at just how efficiently the program operates – and GOCO is not happy. (DP)

People love Topgolf. We’re getting another Topgolf. It’s a fancy driving range. (DBJ)

The Broncos now control the destiny of Mile High’s name. (Denverite)

The environment:

Gov. John Hickenlooper is considering an order that would try to cut carbon emissions from power plants. (AP)

What are solar gardens, exactly? They might be a good way to bring renewables to low-income areas. (KUNC)

Crime and justice:

Boulder SWAT teams hunted for eight hours for a guy who may have had a gunshot wound to the head. They found him alive. (Denverite)

Oh, and also:

SNOW.
