A strong cold front will move through Southern Colorado today. It will bring much colder temperatures (especially in the afternoon), strong wind, a few rain/snow showers, and blowing dust to Southern Colorado. Light snow accumulations and poor visibility will be possible for a time this afternoon and evening north of Colorado Springs and south/southwest of Pueblo. Blowing dust will be mostly likely on the Eastern Plains, where a Blowing Dust Advisory is in effect. Bottom-line, your Tuesday will feel (and look) a lot different than the past two days. Be prepared...
A full-time Air Force Reserve lieutenant colonel could face criminal charges for allegedly vandalizing cars parked at Denver International Airport bearing pro-Bush bumper stickers.
Lieutenant Colonel Alexis Fecteau is deputy for operations for reserve forces at the National Security Space Institute in Colorado Springs.
Denver police spokesman Sonny Jackson says Fecteau is believed to be responsible for defacing at least ten vehicles between December and June. A bait car left by a police detective also was defaced and the detective tracked down Fecteau, who turned himself in Friday.
Jackson says Fecteau is suspected of blacking out the Bush bumper stickers and then spray painting an expletive and the president's name on the vehicles.
Fecteau is released on bond. Police have referred the case to prosecutors, who are considering filing criminal charges.
Base spokesman Staff Sergeant Donald Branum says the base is working with local authorities.
