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...
Colorado's 28 public colleges and universities are struggling to balance budgets with less tax dollars than were promised in May.
The state has cut eleven percent, or $80 million through budget reductions in the past six months.
To deal with the cuts, community colleges have canceled library magazine subscriptions. Western State University professors wrap up their lectures, then empty the waste baskets and dust off the desks because cleaning crews have been laid off.
Among the hardest hit are Adams, Mesa and Western colleges on the Western Slope, which get 65 percent of their budgets from tax dollars.
Linda Curan is the schools' vice president of finance. She said they put more students in each class and delay repairs.
