A woman has died after it appeared she had driven her truck into oncoming traffic and crashed head-on with another vehicle Sunday afternoon, according to Aurora police.
The woman, who was driving a silver Nissan Titan, appeared to have been driving west on Quincy Avenue near Harvest Street when she crossed the center line and collided with a black Ford F-150 traveling the opposite direction, police say.
The woman was transported to a hospital, where she later died from her injuries. The two in the Ford suffered minor injuries, according to police.
The identity of the driver has not been released. Neither alcohol nor speed were “contributing factors in this accident,” according to a release from Aurora police.

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. –
This year, Memorial Day will be different. We won’t see as many gatherings because of the Covid-19 health crisis. And if events are held, we’ll be reminded to practice social distance. Either way, we can still honor the memory of America’s fallen heroes.
Memorial Day weekend is usually the unofficial start to summer. People hit the road to go on vacation or stay home and grill burgers or hot dogs. But Memorial Day is more than just a day off from work and the end of a three-day holiday weekend. The day comes with a heavy price.
Memorial Day started as Decoration Day. Flowers, wreaths and flags decorated the graves of those who died in service to our country. The first was in 1868. The final resting place of more than 20 thousand civil war soldiers who fought and died for the union and confederacy were decorated in Arlington National Cemetery.
152 years later, a small American flag will be placed on the grave of each man and woman who made the ultimate sacrifice to our nation. They gave their life defending America. They died protecting and preserving the freedoms that we enjoy every day.
There are memorials across our country that serve as a fitting tribute to those who are no longer with us. We may not know their names or their faces, but they deserve a moment of our time.
On Memorial Day, we remember more than 1.2 million of our brothers and sisters who died bravely in U.S. wars and conflicts the past 244 years. From the American revolution to the war in Afghanistan, we should take time to stop and remember, even it`s something as silently saying thank you for your service.
At the same time, let’s also remember the sacrifices their families have made as we continue to enjoy the freedoms their loved ones gave their lives to preserve.
Colorado restaurants closed for weeks during the COVID-19 pandemic soon could reopen for limited dining under guidelines that state health officials finalized Sunday evening.
No more than 50 people, or half of normal maximum occupancy, would be allowed to dine at restaurants that adhere to the guidelines and restrictions. Food pickup and delivery still would be encouraged.
Gov. Jared Polis is expected to lay out details Monday. No date for reopening has been given.
Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment officials have been working with restaurant owners during the past week developing guidelines and protective protocols that restaurants would have to follow.
Outdoor dining also would be encouraged. State health officials are recommending that restaurants work with local authorities to receive permission for expanded outdoor dining.
Health officials said any restaurant that can adhere to the guidelines can reopen. Among the requirements:
— Tables would have to be spaced at least 6 feet apart.
— Restaurant employees would have to wear face masks.
— All surfaces and shared spaces would have to be cleaned and disinfected between seatings.
— Groups of people dining together would have to stay together with no mingling.
— No more than eight people could sit together.
— Restaurants would have to encourage or require reservations.

As we get into the summer months, a word of caution to those of you model watchers out there: don’t take the bait.
Forecast models this time of year struggle, because often what drives rain chances aren’t large scale weather patterns, but small scale boundaries and processes that can be difficult to see in real time, let alone model properly. Take today for example. Our highest resolution convection allowing model (CAM) suggested a few isolated showers and storms across North Alabama in the afternoon, with nothing in Middle Tennessee.
So, what actually happened? No rain this afternoon in North Alabama, and in Middle Tennessee…
Another thing to watch out for: hurricanes in the long range model runs. This time of year, there’s almost always a model showing a big hurricane past a week out. The GFS is showing one now entering the Gulf around June 8. This is not likely. The models tend to do this. It’s something that often gets a lot of attention on social media, and doesn’t end up doing much.
So, a word of caution. Know where your weather information is coming from. Models are great tools, but they don’t replace the trained eye of a meteorologist (and many of the pages that post model data like this aren’t run by meteorologists. Just enthusiasts. We’ll keep you informed this summer. And we’ll let you know once something important has piqued our interest and attention. Until then, take what the models say with a grain of salt, and be wary of those who post a few too many model runs.
Calgary city council could make history with a vote on a proposed bylaw banning conversion therapy on Monday.
RICHMOND, Va. — Nearly two weeks ago the White House urged governors to ensure that every nursing home resident and staff member be tested for the coronavirus within 14 days.
It’s not going to happen.
A review by The Associated Press found that at least half of the states are not going to meet White House’s deadline and some aren’t even bothering to try.
Only a handful of states, including West Virginia and Rhode Island, have said they’ve already tested every nursing home resident.
Many states said the logistics, costs and manpower needs are too great to test all residents and staff in a two-week window. Some say they need another week or so, while others say they need much more time. California, the most populous state, said it is still working to release a plan that would ensure testing capacity for all residents and staff at skilled nursing facilities statewide.
And still other states are questioning whether testing every nursing home resident and staff, regardless of any other factors, is a good use of time and money.
“At this time it would be fairly useless to do that,” said Nebraska Chief Medical Officer Dr. Gary Anthone, adding that the state would have to repeat the tests almost daily to get more than a snapshot in time, and the state doesn’t have the capacity when there are others who need to be tested.
Anthone said the state was going to stick with the CDC’s guidelines, which call for testing individually when nursing home residents show symptoms or collectively if there is a new confirmed case of COVID-19 in a home.
The varying responses by states to nursing home testing is another example of the country’s patchwork response to the pandemic that also underscores the Trump administration’s limited influence. The president has preferred to offload key responsibilities and decisions to states and governors, despite calls for a coordinated national response.
“All of this is probably not as well thought out as it could have been.” said Dr. Jim Wright, the medical director at a Virginia nursing home where dozens of residents have died. “It sounds more like an impulsive type of directive rather than one that has been completely vetted by providers on the ground.”
On May 11, Trump heralded his administration’s efforts to boost coronavirus testing and said the U.S. had developed the “most advanced robust testing system in the world, by far.” That same day, Vice President Mike Pence hosted a private conference call with the state’s governors, where White House adviser Dr. Deborah Birx requested that each state target nursing homes to help lower the virus’ death toll.
“Start now,” Pence added, according to a recording of the call obtained by the AP.
Trump said later that day at a news conference that he was thinking of making it a mandatory requirement.
“I think it’s very important to do and I think, frankly, some of the governors were very lax with respect to nursing homes,” Trump said.
Birx acknowledged Friday that the two-week recommendation was a challenge but said it was needed because of the particular vulnerability of nursing homes.
“We should never be discouraged by those who can’t get it done,” she said. “We should be encouraged by those who have shown us that it can be done.”
Nursing homes residents, who are typically older and often have underlying medical conditions, have been particularly hard hit by the virus. More than 36,000 residents and staff have died from outbreaks at the nation’s nursing homes and long-term care facilities, according to an AP tally. . That is more than a third of all deaths in the U.S. that have been attributed to the virus.
Nursing home operators have said the lack of testing kits and other resources have left them nearly powerless to stop the virus from entering their facilities because they haven’t been able to identity silent spreaders not showing symptoms.
The American Health Care Association, the main nursing home trade group, said more than half of its members said they were unable to test all residents and staff within two weeks because of a lack of access to testing. The group also estimates that testing every nursing home resident and staff member would involving testing nearly 3 million people at a cost of $440 million.
Even with the tests, nursing homes struggle to find people to administer them and carve out enough time to perform them.
New York, one of the nation’s leaders in nursing home deaths, said this past week it has sent out enough kits to all nursing homes to test every resident though it remains unclear whether they will be done by the deadline.
Delaware Gov. John Carney announced a plan May 5 for universal testing of all residents and staff in nursing homes and other long-term care facilities, but the testing program is voluntary. On Friday, the state said three-quarters of long-term care facilities had requested testing kits, and that weekly testing of staff would be mandatory starting in June.
Alabama State Health Officer Scott Harris said meeting the White House’s recommendation would mean testing 50,000 people in two weeks when it took three months for the state to test 150,000 people.
“It’s just not possible,” he said.

A fatal encounter between Colorado Springs police officers and a man reported as having a weapon Sunday morning has prompted an investigation.
The man died after police tried to arrest him, which led to a struggle and the use of a Taser, according to a summary by El Paso County Sheriff Bill Elder released Sunday evening. When the Taser appeared ineffective and the man continued to struggle, the summary said, police “controlled” him take him into custody.
“At this time the suspect became limp,” it said.
This happened Sunday morning in Colorado Springs, in the 2700 block of Ashgrove Street, when five officers were dispatched about 9:55 a.m. after a report that the man had a weapon. Police contacted the person who made the report and were told the man was involved in “a disturbance” with neighbors.
When the man collapsed, police called paramedics and tried to revive him. The man was unresponsive and died at the scene.
The coroner is to determine the cause of death. The police were uninjured and have been placed on leave. Elder will lead the investigation, which is required under state law when police use force that leads to the death of a suspect.
El Paso County authorities declined to release the name or age of the suspect or provide other details about this case.

The authorities investigating the disappearance of Suzanne Morphew were looking for more clues Sunday night after concluding a three-day search of a residence east of Salida.
They’ve received hundreds of tips, but Chaffee County Sheriff John Spezze is seeking more.
“Someone has that key piece of information in this case that will help us locate Suzanne, and I’m asking our community members to continue to use the tip line (719-312-7530) to provide any information, no matter how inconsequential the tip may seem,” Spezze said.
Federal Bureau of Investigation and Colorado Bureau of Investigation agents joined in the search with Chaffee County deputies at the residence on County Road 105. Investigators went to that site based on leads and wrapped up their search about 5 p.m. Sunday.
“They were unable to make any connection,” Spezze said. The owner was fully cooperative and not connected with the disappearance, he said. Details of the search weren’t made available.
Morphew, 49, was reported missing May 10 after riding her bicycle, authorities said. A neighbor called Chaffee County dispatchers and reported a disappearance.
Since then, authorities searched an area near Maysville after finding a personal item. A dive team searched along waterways. Spezze asked residents who have home security cameras to save their footage. The investigators, under a search warrant, have taken control of Morphew’s home.
No searches were planned for Monday, but authorities said they would follow up on leads.
DECATUR, Ala. – The Alabama Jubilee Hot Air Balloon Classic has been floating over our area for 43 years.
Hot air balloons took to the skies Sunday morning in Decatur. Despite COVID-19, the community got to enjoy the popular tradition.
The highest summer attraction in Decatur
Hot air balloon pilots gathered in Decatur for the first time in 1978. The annual jubilee is a tradition enjoyed by many generations of fans.
“My dream has always been to ride in a balloon more than once,” Alexi Chadwick said. “I’ve got in the basket, but I’ve never flown.”
It’s an event the 10-year-old gets to watch her grandmother run every year.
“I think it’s the third oldest ballooning event in the United States,” Alabama Jubilee President Ramona Evans said.
What a view!
The event sparks excitement for balloon lovers and summer lovers alike.
“It’s a lot of work,” Evans said. “You get to see the result right away because when you look into the faces of all the people out looking at the balloons…there’s just nothing like it.”
Because of COVID-19, organizers had to make major changes to this year’s event to keep within health and spacing guidelines.
That meant fewer balloons and no vendors. The festival’s annual car, tractor and arts and crafts shows didn’t happen this year. And Alexi won’t be flying.
Live it UP – literally
“It’s just sad because I know a lot of people like the jubilee,” Alexi said.
But come 2021, organizers said the sky will be covered in colorful hot air balloons for everyone to enjoy.

Testing has confirmed 24,174 cases of novel coronavirus in Colorado, and 1,332 people infected with the virus have died, according to the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment tally Sunday evening.
The number of cases was up by 210, with five more deaths since Saturday.
The number of people tested for COVID-19, the highly contagious respiratory disease caused by the virus, reached 150,308, the latest state records show. More than 2,500 people were tested in one day. The actual number of people in Colorado with COVID-19 is thought to be several times higher than the number confirmed by testing.
On Sunday, state records showed 4,119 people have been hospitalized with the virus since it first was detected in Colorado in March.
State health officials were tracking 264 outbreaks at nursing homes, factories, prisons and other group settings.
The health department has changed the way it reports deaths related to the virus, listing the number of fatalities among people with the virus (1,332) as well the number of deaths directly attributed to COVID-19 on a death certificate — 1,088.
The virus is thought to spread mainly from person to person through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people nearby or, possibly, be inhaled into the lungs.
U.S. Centers for Disease Control officials say the virus is more likely to spread when people are in close contact with one another — within about 6 feet. It’s possible for a person to get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes. This isn’t thought to be the main way the virus spreads. Heath experts say they’re still learning more about this virus.
But it is clear that the virus that causes COVID-19 spreads easily. Health officials monitoring the continuing COVID-19 pandemic say it appears to be spreading more efficiently than influenza, but not as efficiently as measles.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House on Sunday broadened its travel ban against countries hard-hit by the coronavirus by denying admission to foreigners who have been in Brazil during the two-week period before they hoped to enter the U.S.
President Donald Trump had already banned travel from the United Kingdom, Europe and China. He said last week that he was considering similar restrictions for Brazil.
The U.S. leads the world in the number of confirmed cases, followed by Brazil, now Latin America’s hardest-hit country. Third on the list is Russia.
Press secretary Kayleigh McEnany cast Trump’s latest move as one designed to “protect our country.”
The ban on travel from Brazil takes effect late Thursday. As with the other bans, it does not apply to legal permanent residents. A spouse, parent or child of a U.S. citizen or legal permanent resident also would be allowed to enter the country.
