    BOULDER COUNTY, Colo. (CBS4) – It may become the iconic photo of 2020, the symbol of the worst wildfire season in Colorado’s history. And it doesn’t contain a lick of flame. Only the licking of hands. It shows an equine odd couple – Adam, the draft horse, and Ennis, the donkey — greeting a trio of humans who were not sure what to find in the remains of a ranch overrun by fire the day before. (credit: Boulder County Parks & Open Space) Adam and Ennis were turned loose by their owner at the behest of first responders trying to save as many people and animals as possible on Saturday, Oct. 17, the day the Calwood Fire started in the foothills northwest of Boulder. High wind propelled the blaze through the treetops eastward. Jason Vroman, a Senior Ranger with Boulder County Parks and Open Space, was patrolling near Broomfield at...
    Though Denver Public Schools will be shut down until October 16, the Denver Public Library is just starting a soft reopening, and many workers for the City and County of Denver are doing their gigs from home, Halloween is still happening. The holiday comes as coronavirus cases rise nationally and President Donald Trump, who is dealing with COVID-19, mugs as though he's doing fine and encourages residents of the United States not to be scared. But plenty of people are, especially as they contemplate kids and trick-or-treat activities. And so the Denver Department of Public Health and Environment has released a set of guidelines regarding what people can do to reduce their risk of transmitting or catching the virus as they celebrate Halloween. The guidelines are based on the county's current status on the state's COVID-19 Dial Dashboard, where Denver falls somewhere in the middle, under Safer at Home, Level 2 Concern, with enough cases...
    The latest weekly COVID-19 outbreaks report from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment has the most entries since the start of the pandemic, a stunning 53. A large chunk of the sites included in this batch is associated with educational institutions, paced by Greek houses at major colleges and universities: seven, bringing the total to fourteen over just two weeks. And that's not counting the positive or probable novel coronavirus cases at the University of Colorado Boulder, currently nearly 1,700. The CDPHE considers an entity an outbreak after two or more COVID-19 cases among residents, staffers or other people connected to a specific location are confirmed within a fourteen-day period, or two or more cases of respiratory illness with an onset of symptoms within a fourteen-day period are paired with at least one additional COVID-19 diagnosis.

    Image via Harvard Global Health Institute, A new, interactive COVID-19 risk level map, developed by researchers at the Harvard Global Health Institute, says many Florida counties should probably institute stay-at-home orders. The map, released today, allows users to view the risk level of every state and county in the United States. The coronavirus risk levels are indicated by a color rating―green, yellow, orange or red―based on the number of new daily cases per 100,000 people.  A county with fewer than one daily new case per 100,000 is green; one to 9 is yellow; 10-24 is orange, and 25 or above is red. If a county is at the red level, it means that it is at “a tipping point” and that “stay-at-home orders are necessary,” according to the dashboard.  Florida is one of just three states, including Arizona and Mississippi, “in the red” with a total average of 29.1 daily...

    Police video and documents released more than a year after the in-custody death of a black man in Texas show that sheriff's deputies used a stun gun on him four times despite his multiple cries of "I can't breathe" following a chase after he failed to dim his headlights. Javier Ambler gasped for air, told police he had congestive heart failure and begged, "Save me" before he was stunned a fourth time and lost consciousness, according to a report published Monday by the Austin American-Statesman and KVUE-TV. The revelations about Ambler's 2019 death raise questions about Williamson County deputies' practice of pursuing drivers for minor crimes. A local prosecutor involved in the investigation of Ambler's death also says the circumstances are troubling because it was being filmed for A&E Network's real-time police show "Live PD." KVUE reports the sheriff's office in February refused to release any information about the case, but...

Just this week, local media outlets were able to obtain bodycam footage of the detainment. What are the details? The incident was initially captured during the taping of an episode of the reality show "Live PD," according to reports, though the episode has not aired.
