Triceratops skull, skeleton dug up by workers building new Thornton police, fire station

Construction workers working on the new public safety building in Thornton found a rare triceratops skeleton and skull Friday.

The find is one of three triceratops skulls found along the Front Range and has likely been laying there for at least 66 million years, Denver Museum of Nature and Science curator of dinosaurs Joe Sertich said in a statement.

“My heart was racing,” he said. “As soon as (we) uncovered it and realized this was a horn of a triceratops and not just another leg bone or part of a hip, it made the site really exciting.”

Column: An apology to Donald Trump, from the 'fake news' media

As a fake news media member in good standing, I would like to sincerely apologize for forcing you to hold a campaign rally eight months into your first term as president.
I'm sorry that in the course of that rally I forced you to misquote yourself and to devote one reference to Heather Heyer, the woman killed during the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, versus an inordinate number of references to the journalists who cover you and your administration.
I definitely should not have made you fail to mention the 10 American sailors who died or are missing from the Navy destroyer USS John S. McCain after it collided with an oil tanker Monday.
That was callous of me, and I am deeply sorry.

Theres an Unprecedented Wildfire in Greenland. Thats Bad News for the Arctic.

This is going to sound weird, but there’s a wildfire right now in west Greenland. You know, that huge island of mostly ice? Part of it is on fire.

There’s been nothing even close to this since reliable satellite-based fire detection records began in Greenland in 2000. Very small wildfires can evade satellite detection, and old-timer scientists who have worked in Greenland for decades say that micro-fires there aren’t necessarily uncommon.

This week’s fire, however, is on another level

But global warming is just a vast conspiracy by left-wingers.

8 German Exchange Students Denied Entry at Denver Airport

The eight German students who arrived at Denver International Airport Friday to begin four weeks learning English with host families in Salida instead received a lesson in U.S. immigration policies.
U.S. Customs and Border Patrol and Customs officers determined while questioning the students that they did not have the proper visas to enter the U.S., said agency spokesperson Jamie Ruiz.
Immigration officials decided the students would have to return to Germany on the next available flight on the same airline by which they arrived, which was at 5:15 p.m. Saturday. Customs and Border Patrol held the students in a room at the airport until they boarded that flight.
The debacle left the students exhausted and resulted from immigration officials applying regulations differently than they had in the past, said Salida resident Susan Masterson, who has coordinated the exchange program, Rocky Mountain Language Adventure, since 2012.
The students applied for and received traveler visa waivers to participate in the exchange program, just as other German students in the program have for the past five years.
