PUEBLO, Colo. (AP) - Teachers in the southern Colorado city of Pueblo have voted to strike over pay, but a walkout won't start at least until May while the state decides whether to intervene. The Pueblo Chieftain reported Friday the vote was 471-24. The vote came after the school board rejected a fact-finder's recommendation that teachers should get cost-of-living raises.

DENVER (AP) - Environmentalists are asking an appeals court to reinstate a rule restricting harmful methane emissions on U.S. lands, at least temporarily. Attorneys for 13 groups on Friday asked a federal appeals court in Denver to block an order by a lower court that halted the regulation. The rule required energy companies to capture methane gas instead of burning it or wasting it at drilling sites on public lands.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - The military is moving nearly 150 personnel to a Colorado Air Force base as it streamlines its space operations.

The Denver Post reports James Mamich was arrested Thursday on suspicion of burglary, assault and criminal mischief. Mamich was being held in the Elbert County jail. Online jail records didn't indicate whether he had an attorney.
