THIS NEWSLETTER SUPPORTED BY   Compiled by Eric Lubbers, eric@coloradosun.com CTO/Newsletter Wrangler, @brofax Good morning and happy 100th anniversary of the passage of the 18th Amendment. You’d know it as the one that prohibited alcohol around the country (we have an interesting slice of the history of Prohibition by a CSU professor later on in the newsletter). But it’s probably a bit too early to be celebrating that particular anniversary (unless you’re into midweek Bloody Marys), so just hoist your coffee and remember a time when the whole country could actually come together to pass an amendment (and then repeal it later), something that seems next to impossible here in 2019. Let’s shake this martini, shall we?    Wildlife officials hoping man-made dens help orphaned cubs of Colorado’s bad-news bears get back on their paws   A sedated orphan bear cub wait for wildlife managers with Colorado Parks and Wildlife to transfer it from a cage to an artificial den on the north slope of Pikes Peak on Jan. 15, 2019. (Mark Reis, Special to The Colorado Sun)   If you want to start your day off with a beautiful piece of writing paired with some fantastic photos of fat, sleepy bear cubs, I’ve got a deal for you. Jennifer Brown takes us through the journey of bear cubs that wildlife officials hope have unlearned the bad behavior (tipping garbage cans, breaking into garages) taught to them by their mothers and how the rehab effort fits into Colorado’s relationship with its 20,000 or so bears. I don’t think I need to do any more to persuade you to click, do I? >> Read Jennifer’s evocative story (and see more photos of the cubs) here.   Jared Polis has 208 options to lower your taxes. But it’ll be harder than you may think.   “Our tax reform proposal simply asks the largest, most influential corporations to start paying their fair share so that individuals, families and small businesses can pay less.”— Gov. Jared Polis, in his budget request   On the campaign trail, Jared Polis promised to lower the state’s income tax rate 3 to 5 percent by tackling “tax loopholes.” After his budget request made it clear he is serious about that promise, Brian Eason examined Colorado’s tax law (we have 208 deductions, exemptions and credits) to see what his options were — and why lawmakers even in his own party think it’s a tough row to hoe. >> Read Brian’s excellent explainer on how Colorado tax breaks work and what Polis would have to eliminate to get to his goal. MORE: Our politics team analyzed all of Polis’ budget request, released Tuesday, and boiled it down into an easy-to-understand explainer.   Pueblo hasn’t had a mayor in six decades. But will next week’s election help turn the tide for the city?   A spaceship lands in Pueblo and some aliens get out. “Take me to your leader,” one demands.“We wouldn’t know where to go,” Nick Gradisar quips.   While most of the Front Range has sprung back from the Great Recession (and then some) Pueblo has remained economically … stuck. It’s lost some major industry and even a minor league baseball team due to what some leaders say is a “lack of cohesiveness.” To fight that inertia, the city is shifting the way it governs itself and electing a mayor for the first time in six decades. Even if you don’t live in Pueblo, you’re going to want to read this story about how Colorado’s ninth-largest city is fighting for its economic place in the state. >> Read Jesse Paul’s report from southern Colorado here.   More from The Sun This is the best explainer about what Monday’s big Colorado Supreme Court decision on oil and gas actually means (and I’m not just saying that because I work with these guys).If you enjoy a nice cocktail, CSU professor Jeffrey Miller wants to remind you that mixed drink culture as we know it started out as a way to mask the absolutely stomach-turning taste of bootleg liquor during prohibition (for example, some moonshiners realized they could simulate bourbon by adding dead rats to their spirits for a few days).The U.S. Forest Service has built a wild horse pen that could allow it to bypass federal restrictions to sell the animals for slaughter.Officials want to keep drones away from Colorado wildfires.

Parents at the school organized an opposition and instead of fighting, the drilling pad was moved next to another school. But parents at that school, a public school serving mostly working-class Hispanic families, didn’t have the means to organize an opposition. Larry Borowsky at The Colorado Trust has a stirring look at how health risks in Colorado are unequally distributed.  // The Colorado Trust // “The reckoning has come.” Chalkbeat Colorado looks at the state of negotiations between Denver Public Schools and its teachers as the threat of a strike looms. // Chalkbeat Colorado // Bruce Finley’s three-part series on the paving of Denver is complete with a feature on the city’s attempt to build 80 acres of new green space … in an industrial wasteland. (Part 1, 2, 3). // The Denver Post // I can never get enough of skijoring dogs. // Durango Herald // Denver still has a whole lot of cranes, but this breakdown by Mike Rosenberg shows that we don’t hold a candle to the Pacific Northwest. // Seattle Times // Luvin Arms, a sanctuary for farm animals in Erie, is nursing more than 600 chickens back to health after they were rescued from a bankrupt farm in LaSalle. // Longmont Times-Call // This is an amazing story: Two white women in Colorado discovered slave-owning ancestors in their family history — and immediately donated $200,000 to the Denver nonprofit Soul2Soul Sisters as reparations. // CPR News // Denver is suing Purdue Pharma and other big drug companies to help pay for the effects of the opioid crisis. // Denverite // Nearly 3,600 USDA employees are furloughed in Colorado because of the shutdown and things like hemp licensing, drought monitoring, insurance payments and other programs that are crucial to farmers have ground to a halt. // Durango Herald    Your Thing for Today The Thing: “Those Who Can’t” (watch on TruTV or on demand) Why You Might Like It: The best thing about Peak TV (the phenomenon where every single network and streaming service is scrambling for original content to stand out in the crowd) is that talented people who may have never gotten shows, well, get them. For example, three local comedians (Adam Cayton-Holland, Ben Roy and Andrew Orvedahl) managed to parlay their Grawlix show into a full-scale sitcom that is entering its third season on TruTV. If you haven’t seen it yet, it is a very weird, very funny show set in a Denver high school (and featuring at least the exterior of the Lion’s Lair on occasion). This season looks to be building on a gentrification plot involving an evil mayor (played by Patton Oswalt), so you should probably hop back to season one to catch up. Editor’s note: Every Sunriser will include one … thing … to cap off our time together. The Thing will be just about anything, like a TV show or a book or a particularly cool dog toy.    Corrections In Monday’s newsletter, I referred to the wrong Supreme Court in the blurb about the Martinez decision (it was Colorado’s, not the U.S.) and accidentally labeled a KUNC story about worker fatality statistics as Colorado Public Radio.

SUMMER of Rockets is set to arrive on our screens this year. The new BBC cold war drama boasts a stellar cast. Here’s what we know about the production so far… Summer of Rockets finished filming last year and is due to be aired this year – it stars Keeley Hawes as Kathleen Shaw Who is in the Summer of Rockets cast? The upcoming BBC show features some familiar faces. Here’s who you can expect to see in the new series: Keeley Hawes Keeley, 42, was born February 10, 1976, and is an English actress. She trained at the Sylvia Young Theatre School. Keeley kicked off her career in the film version of The Last September (1999). But it has been her TV credits that have launched her to stardom, including Tipping Velvet, Spooks, Line of Duty and The Bodyguard. Toby Stephens Toby Stephens stars as Samuel in the BBC production Toby, 49, was born on 21st April 1969, and is an English actor. He is the son of actors Dame Maggie Smith and Sir Robert Stephens. Toby studied acting at the esteemed London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA.) He’s had an extensive career both on stage and screen but is best known for his roles as Bond villain Gustav Graves in Die Another Day as well as portraying Edward Rochester in BBC’s adaptation of Jane Eyre. Timothy Spall Timothy is a veteran actor and presenter who has appeared in multiple stage, TV and film productions. The actor, 61, first found fame in TV drama Auf Wiedersehen, Pet, following a host of theatre roles. He went on to become a well-known face in everything from Disney movie Enchanted to Harry Potter films and the rather more dark flick, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. Linus Roache Linus is a Brit-born actor based in London. His father is Coronation Street legend, Bill Roache, who plays Ken Barlow on the long-running soap. Linus launched his career playing Bill’s on-screen son, Peter Barlow, for one episode in 1975. However, he didn’t start taking up bigger roles until the mid-nineties, when he started doing acting professionally. As well as this, you may recognise his voice from adverts for brands including lastminute.com and Clinique. Mark Bonnar Mark, 50, was born in Edinburgh, Scotland, in November 1968 to parents Rosie, a social worker, and Stan, an artist. He studied at Leith Academy but left at 17 and did a YTS as a library assistant, and worked in the libraries of Edinburgh for five years. He did a short stint at Telford College in Shropshire to do a Highers but he returned to the library service and after two years ended up in the planning department at Edinburgh City Council. Mark is one of the cast of the Chanel 4 sitcom Catastrophe and also starred as barrister Colin Osbourne in the ITV crimes drama Unforgotten. The actor can also be recognised for his role as Emily Watson’s husband Gary Carmichael in BBC drama Apple Tree Yard. He’s also known for starring in Shetland as well as playing Officer Meekie in Porridge. [article-rail-topic title=”More on TV Explainers” term_id=”13288″ posts_number=”6″ /] What is the Summer of Rockets about? Set in the UK during the Cold War period and tumultuous year of 1958, fear and excitement of the future permeates the lives of all. Samuel is a 40 something Russian Jewish émigré, inventor and designer of bespoke hearing aids, whose clients include former Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill. The series follows Samuel and his family, wife Miriam and children Hannah and Sasha, as he is approached by MI5 to demonstrate his work. Yet it is not his inventions the operatives require – instead Samuel is tasked with the secret mission of obtaining information about his charming, newly acquired friends Kathleen and her husband Richard Shaw MP through whom Samuel also meets the impressive Lord Arthur Wallington. As Samuel’s life becomes more and more intertwined with his mission, how far is he willing to let things unravel for his cause? And who can he truly trust? When can you watch Summer of Rockets? Summer of Rockets is written and directed by the multi-award-winning Stephen Poliakoff. It is not known when the series will be broadcast but filming in London and Oxford started last summer and wrapped up in mid-2018. There will be six hour-long shows which will be screened on BBC Two. For those that miss it they can catch upon iPlayer after the show has been broadcast.
