AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. (AP) - The Air Force Academy has canceled intercollegiate sports events because of the federal government shutdown. The academy said Saturday both home and away events have been postponed. The academy's online sports calendar says seven intercollegiate events were scheduled Saturday.

YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK, Calif. (AP) - Yosemite National Park in California is open to visitors despite the government shutdown but there'll be nobody to greet them, help them navigate the trails or even make sure they're in the right campground. Spokesman Scott Gediman says the park that boasts the famous granite cliffs of Half Dome and El Capitan can't pay all of its people so rangers are being furloughed.

ROCKY MOUNTAIN NATIONAL PARK, Colo. (AP) - Rocky Mountain National Park officials say park roads will remain open if the federal government shuts down but visitor centers would be closed and entrance stations would not be staffed. Park spokeswoman Kyle Patterson said Friday rangers would continue patrolling the roads but the park would have only limited staff available to respond to emergencies. She says crews would not plow the roads if more snow falls.

DENVER (AP) - A California software company is bringing nearly 800 jobs to Denver over the next several years. The Denver Post reports the Colorado Economic Development Commission awarded San Francisco-based Accelo $14.8 million in job growth tax credits. The positions range from sales to client service to business development and will pay an average annual wage of $92,977.
