Local Young Eagles Program Offers Free Flights To Young People

Know a kid ages 8-17 who might like to fly with the Eagles?

The EAA Young Eagles program was launched in 1992 to give interested young people, ages 8 – 17, an opportunity to go flying in a general aviation airplane.

These flights are offered free of charge and are made possible through the generosity of EAA member volunteers.

The next event is coming up June 8th!

The city of Loveland will be offering this “trusted utility” later in 2019.  It will be very interesting to see how it competes with broadband options already available in the community.

Thankful The Cyclist is OK, But Interesting Twists in Story

in Local News

The unidentified cyclist was taken to Medical Center of the Rockies with non-life-threatening injuries.

Two witnesses saw the cyclist crash as a white pickup with a utility bed, also southbound, passed him. But they weren’t sure if the truck made contact with the bike or its rider.

The truck stopped briefly and let out a passenger, who stayed at the scene. The driver said he was going to park his truck but then left the scene.

An eyewitness told police that he was driving north and witnessed the accident. His dashcam was rolling, and he gave the footage to the officers to help with their investigation.

It will be interesting to see if they can determine what really happened…

Congrats To These Fine Young Chefs From Our Community!

in Local News

It would be interesting to follow them to see how this skill pans out for them in the future…no pun intended.

In a large convention hall at Epcot Center, five Loveland teens cooked their way to first- and second-place wins at Cook Around the World.

The students from Mountain View, Thompson Valley and Loveland high schools, who all take cooking classes at their respective schools, came together to represent the Thompson School District at the cooking competition in Florida on April 27.

The interchange and bridge is being totally redesigned, which will cause 402 as it travels underneath I-25 to be completely closed for four months beginning June 10.

Recent wet weather has led the 120-day closure of Colo. 402 at Interstate 25, originally scheduled to begin May 20, to be delayed to June 10, according to a Colorado Department of Transportation news release.

Did You Take Part in This Phone Poll For The Local Sales Tax Increase?

in Local News

A half cent sales tax increase would mean an increase of annual taxes around $31 for the “average” Loveland household.

In return, you would get improved traffic flow on East Eisenhower Boulevard and Taft Avenue, the rebuilding of one Loveland fire station and the remodeling of another, the construction of underpasses to improve public trail safety, construction of a new recreation center and new branch library, as well as expansion of the Loveland Museum.

We found it interesting that the city's newest residents (living here 5 years or less) were the strongest supporters of the initiative.
