On this day in 1919 President Woodrow Wilson collapsed after a speech in Pueblo, Colo., during a tour in support of the Treaty of Versailles.

Here in Colorado, recall is in the fall air. For now, Vail's Arn Menconi will kept his seat at the head of the Eagle County Board of Commissioners for at least the rest of the year. Petitioners missed the deadline to submit the required signatures for an election late this year to recall Menconi, but that does not mean the effort is over, said recall leader Mike Reid.

Will there be a recall of J-Hic here in Denver as he goes on a spending spree heading into the DNC national convention less than a year away?

Denver GOP Councilwoman Jeanne Faatz said in theory she could support J-Hics new pay plan for city employees if the city paid out the same total amount of money to all employees (which seems very unlikely to me). She said the reason she supported the proclamation (to consider the scheme)was to avoid collective bargaining. "I want to keep the frustration level (among city employees) from getting out of hand," Faatz said. (Denver Post)
