Feels like the start of the week is sneaking up on us already, eh? Turn the tables on that sneaky weekend and read today’s news.

You won’t want to miss dispatches from Donald Trump and Amy Schumer, plus there’s how the Broncos look and how your housing costs will look.

Donald Trump was here last night

This election season is weird. Your Saturday night plans could be going to hear the Republican nominee for president speak. Those were Andy’s plans, and here’s what he heard. (Denverite)

Stay calm and vote

There is no indication of any local election threats in Colorado, local officials say. National terrorism task forces Friday warned that several states may be targeted by terrorists or hackers near Election Day. (Denver Channel)

Friends don’t let friends share fake news

There is no such thing as “The Denver Guardian.” If you see an article from the organization, you should also know that their address is listed as a tree in a parking lot next to a vacant building on Colfax.

How things look between the Broncos and the Raiders tonight

“Something’s gotta give Sunday — Oakland’s pass protection or Denver’s pass defense. Finding out which one does should be fun,” Christian says. (Denverite)

Amy Schumer documented her Denver trip pretty well

Journey with me through Schumer’s instagram to see how close you came to running into her and impressing her with your jokes. (Denverite)

Look, I’m sorry your pumpkin’s not coming back

You might as well recycle it. The options range from composting it, to making a bird feeder out of your old wrinkly gourd. (Denver Channel)

Not too late to do something this weekend
