Good morning, weekend readers. Here’s what I’ve read that grabbed my eyes today, including stories on today’s protest march, an imminent deportation, a hidden parks treasure, the wildfire forecast and more.

What happens when a CORA lands:

Then the reporters requested records on Denver Water’s response to the first request. The result: a look inside a government department that sees a big story coming its way. (ABC7)
