Denver in 5 minutes: What you need to know today, Jan. 3
Hi. Today’s the first day for my New Year’s resolution: Plan out every workday in the morning and review what I did in the evening. I’ll keep you updated. Meanwhile, here’s my read of the morning news, from the weather to a virtual art exhibit.
It might snow every day for the rest of this week.
But we have no idea how much. The various computer models call for everything from a couple inches to ten-plus. We might see a bit this morning, but it really should start Wednesday. (Weather5280)
The Denver Center for the Performing Arts Complex is hosting a virtual-reality art exhibition on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 7:30 p.m. (DBJ)
Big stuff coming to Federal Boulevard:
A local group has been pushing for redevelopment on Federal for years, but few developers have taken the bait. What might change that: Improvements to the road, a huge new CDOT headquarters, massive investment in Sun Valley and more. (Denverite)
The search for David Puckett continues:
The FBI have assigned 50 agents to join 100 local officers in the search for the 6-year-old boy, who went missing from a home on Amherst Avenue on New Year’s Eve. (DP)
Update: Awful news. Police have found a child’s body in an icy pond. No confirmation of whether it’s David. (Denverite)
Black Hawk’s big bet:
The mountain gambling town is putting millions into revamping its central strip, and Monarch Casino is building a big new hotel and a casino expansion. Will it be enough to keep up with gamblers’ changing tastes? (CPR)
