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...
Thornton police commander Lori Moriarty says Colorado needs to take action against methamphetamine labs because some of them are exposing children to dangerous fumes.
She says sometimes police don't even know when children are inside a home before they raid it for meth.
Moriarty spoke today at the first meeting of a new state task force looking for solutions to the meth problem.
She and Attorney General John Suthers are both on the task force. They called for more cooperation among police agencies and between police and social service agencies.
State lawmakers set up the panel.
Meth users accounted for 31 percent of everyone admitted to treatment programs last year -- up from 14 percent in 2000. Families are often hit hard because about half of meth users are women, compared with a fourth of the population for most other drugs.
