After a mild Saturday, temperatures to finish the weekend will be MUCH colder! A system to our west pushes into SE Colorado overnight. Snow showers will be possible by early Sunday morning across the I-25 corridor with a change to rain and snow showers through the afternoon. Accumulation should be minimal as most moisture looks to be light and temperatures will warm into the upper 30s and 40s through the afternoon, though areas in higher elevations could see 1-2". The main impact will be the cold along with winds gusting up to 40 mph at times. Click on the 'Weather' tab for more...
He gave up his dreams of playing baseball so he could be a farmer. At that time, he had no idea pumpkins would make him famous.
But a bronze statue was dedicated in honor of local legend Nick Venetucci on Saturday.
For more than 50 years, he would let children come to his farm to pick out Halloween pumpkins for free.
Mr. Venetucci died nearly two months ago. But his wife, Bambi, believes he's smiling down today from heaven.
"The pumpkin fields are empty now. No longer do we hear laughter of children. However, Nick can hear 'Well done, well done, my good and faithful servant'."
The project has been in the works for two years. It cost $130 thousand.
Venetucci's work will live on next to the statue. The small area will eventually become a pumpkin patch.
