Roads are icy in spots that saw accumulating snow yesterday. Allow yourself plenty of extra time this morning and dress warmly, as wind chills are in the single digits and teens for many. A second disturbance will bring another round of snow showers to the Front Range this afternoon and early evening. While not as heavy as yesterday, some additional light accumulations over the higher terrain will be possible, including Teller and Northern El Paso Counties. Highs in the 30s and 40s will feel colder when factoring a blustery northwest wind. Click on the 'Weather' tab for more...
A new ban on panhandling will go into effect within the next two weeks in downtown Colorado Springs. Among the activities now banned: Salvation Army’s Red Kettle campaign.
11 News talked to the Salvation Army to find out how much the new ban will impact their ability to fundraise during the holiday season. A spokesman told us that it will have an effect, but probably not as large as many people think.
He said only one bell ringing location will be affected. That’s on the corner of Tejon and Pikes Peak.
He said not being able to collect downtown is a loss, but is optimistic that the panhandling ban will not significantly hurt their fundraising.
The El Paso County Salvation Army’s Red Kettle campaign raised $68,000 last year and accounts for around 15 percent of the organization’s income.
