A perfect day today for a long and winding bicycle ride. Traveled west from Denver, into the big hills of Golden Gate Canyon, slowing here to take it all in.

My dad! He’s out of rehab at the nursing home as his health keeps improving. My mum reports the nurse - a “big bloke” who helped my dad into the car - noticed the KUNC bumper sticker. He then gushed about the station as a lifesaver and how it makes his day. And that made my day!

@WJeffreyBrown  Wait until there’s just one newsroom left in every state and then start to ask why there’s no news coverage outside of large cities.

It's an honor to be a screener for the @duPontAwards . This is my third year doing it. I look forward to digging into the submissions and, as inevitably happens, being inspired by top work from other newsrooms.

Of the many attempts to save local news, this experiment in California is one I’m going to watch closely.

Our latest @KUNC  investigation stems from the Elijah McClain case. Colorado medics used ketamine 902 times in cases of "excited delirium" in the last 2.5 years. That includes 180 times in the first half of this year. I team up with @raedear1 . Story:

An Annenberg survey on civics found that 39% of Americans polled could name all three branches of federal government. Twenty-two percent couldn’t name one. The National Commission on Military, National and Public Service has recommendations on how to change that, and more. 👇

One email, sent directly to us by the Senate's top administrator, asked to tell other news orgs not to approach aides and interns for interviews, but to speak with communications secretaries. We didn't act on that request #coleg  #copolitics
