BOULDER (AP) — Officials in Boulder are worried that a major international cycling race will bypass the city next year.
The USA Pro Cycling Challenge has drawn criticism from some residents, who are concerned about the impact the race has on open space and recreation areas.
Analysts say the economic impact was much less than the $8 million that the Boulder Convention and Visitors Bureau had predicted this year because many spectators were local residents. Members of the Boulder City Council say they still believe this year's race was a success.
GREELEY (AP) — Eaton Police Chief Randall Jacobson has resigned after more than a decade in the post.
Assistant Town Manager Donald Cadwallader tells the Greeley Tribune that Jacobson was placed on administrative leave in September and was investigated on possible violations of city and police policies (http://bit.ly/TxS9am). Town administrators have not elaborated on the accusations. A message left at a phone number listed for Jacobson wasn't immediately returned Thursday night.
Police Capt. Arthur Mueller is serving as the interim police chief.
