The District 20 School Board essentially voted to reject this petition on Thursday night, saying the book called "Perfect Chemistry" is not suitable for a middle school audience because of its inappropriate content.

  • Water waste: Sprinklers running despite week of rain in Colorado Springs

    Water waste: Sprinklers running despite week of rain in Colorado Springs

    Thursday, July 20 2017 9:03 PM EDT2017-07-21 01:03:31 GMT

    Despite a week of rain storms in and around Colorado springs there is likely a sprinkler system running somewhere in the area. Even during storms sprinklers are spotted running. It is waste from a conservation stand-point, also on your water bill. "This would be a good week to not run them as frequently or maybe not at all,"
