If you follow Sentinel Colorado online, in print or here in our Daily E-dition, I don’t have to remind you how the news from the region during the past couple of weeks has been hard to keep up with.
Among the headlines we’ve delivered to you recently include:
- News that city lawmakers likely held an illegal vote during a closed meeting that effectively ended a censure move against Councilmember Danielle Jurinsky — without public debate. Days later it became clear that city conditions for reimbursing Jurninsky for her $16,0000 in legal expenses weren’t met, also violating city codes.
- The Sentinel this week took a long look at how a far-reaching and comprehensive plan to remake the entire Aurora Public Schools District fell apart at the 11th hour. The unexpected end of the APS BluePrint plan unraveled when parents at one school successfully persuaded the school board to spike the plan to prevent closure of Sable Elementary school.
- The Sentinel this week also offered extensive context and detail to stories about how a homeless camping ban became law in Aurora.
- Sentinel reporters brought you insight into how the imminent demise of Tri-County Health could impact everyone in the Aurora region.
- Sentinel sports reporting pros brought you hundreds of photos, names and stories about amazing student athlete victories and stinging losses.
During the past two weeks, The Sentinel has offered readers more than 200 local stories, including dozens of photos and 180,000 words. In addition to all that, The Sentinel has provided thousands of more stories and photos from the Associated Press and other collaborating Colorado newspapers.
And the required cost to you and anyone, anywhere who wants or needs access to those stories? Nothing.
