1) Last week, we asked, “Where’s Kevin Now?” This week, editor in chief Dave Burdick joins Paul and photojournalist Kevin Beaty to reveal the answer: The Beloved Community Village in RiNo. Congratulations to the winners, and stay tuned for another sound-guessing game soon.

2) City reporter Andy Kenney previews city’s new master planning process for City Park, including the efforts to pull the initiative into the controversies surrounding the city’s stormwater project and the I-70 widening. Here’s Andy’s relevant reporting:
