BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - A year of upheaval at the U.S. Interior Department has seen dozens of staff members reassigned, rules governing industry shelved and complaints its leaders are ignoring public input. The evolving status quo at the agency has met with praise from energy and mining companies and congressional Republicans. Others say the changes have curbed outside input and elevated corporate desires above the government's duty to safeguard public lands and resources.

DENVER (AP) - Two people died and three others were injured when two cars collided and rolled over early Sunday on Interstate 70 in Denver. Doug Schepman with the Denver Police Department says the crash happened shortly after 2:30 a.m. between a silver sedan and a dark sedan. The accident remains under investigation.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - The National Space Defense Center at Schriever Air Force Base in Colorado is now in full operation. The center, which last year was operating with borrowed troops, has begun operating 24 hours a day with a staff of 230. Its mission is to ferret out threats to military and spy satellites and take actions to keep American interests safe in orbit.

DENVER (AP) - Police stations in Denver are accepting bump stocks after the city banned the devices. Bump stocks allow semi-automatic rifles to mimic the rapid fire of machine guns when attached. The move was largely symbolic as the city has long prohibited the types of semi-automatic rifles that can be modified by the device.
