More than 6,000 signatures have been collected on an online petition by a University of Colorado at Colorado Springs student with Down syndrome calling for allowing students with intellectual disabilities who earn certificates to walk with students who earn degrees at commencement ceremonies.“Every student deserves to have the same opportunities as their friends and classmates,” UCCS junior Nick Harmon states on his change.org petition seeking supporters to “advocate for inclusiveness and equality on campus.”University officials say the CU system’s graduation policy — bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degree earners are permitted to walk at commencement, but not those in certificate or endorsement programs — is not discriminatory because it applies to all students.

I hear it’s worth over $2 billion. -- Henry H., DenverHenry – The last Forbes evaluation in September for the value of the Broncos’ franchise is $2.65 billion, up from $2.4 billion in 2017 and $1.94 in '16. Tidy sum. The Bowlen family trust owns approximately 80 percent after John Bowlen, Pat Bowlen’s older brother, sold a significant share of his minority interest in March to the trust. The best estimate previously was John had owned about 35 percent. Pat’s younger brother and his sister sold their shares to Pat many years ago (and probably wish they had kept them, given the dramatically rising worth of NFL franchises). When their mother died, she left equal shares to Pat and John.Originally, in 1984, after the death of the family’s father, the five purchased a majority of the … [Read more...] about Woody’s Broncos Mailbag: Would the bickering Bowlens ever sell the team?
