“I’m excited,” Eid said in a video-recorded interview. “I’m thinking for pursuit, I’m actually, (I) usually win them.”

A planned national high school walkout for gun control on the 19th anniversary of the Columbine shooting Friday won’t include student protests at the Colorado school that changed the way the nation viewed shootings.
Just as it has done every year since the April 20, 1999, shooting killed 12 students and a teacher, Columbine High School will be closed, and students there will stick with their tradition of holding a day of service to commemorate the tragedy in a community that includes both those who have pushed for gun control and to arm teachers.
While the current statute requires landlords to provide weatherproof homes and functioning heaters, it doesn’t specify mold as a violation of habitable standards.
As Denver becomes a place where more people rent than own, State Rep. Dominique Jackson and advocacy group 9to5 Colorado think it’s time to update laws that protect tenants.
House Bill 18-397, introduced this week by Jackson and State Sen. Dominick Moreno, calls for significant amendments to the current “Warranty of Habitability,” a state statute that holds landlords accountable for making sure their properties maintain basic safety standards. For instance, while the current statute requires landlords to provide weatherproof homes and functioning heaters, it doesn’t specify mold as a violation of habitable standards, according to a summary of the proposed bill.
Under Jackson’s legislation, mold would be a violation.
