Case Brought to Closure 2014 Mar 09 Media (Bushtit)

______________________________________________________________________________

A secret task force in the Pokoh's Peak Police Department has reported success in the investigation, tracking and apprehension of multiple suspects under suspicion of kidnappings and homicides. A black out, agreed to by media outlets, allowed the force to go after the suspects without awareness the net was closing around them.

Private citizen Brooke Killough became involved midway through the investigation, and volunteered to act as bait for the alleged murderer. The investigation culminated into a shoot out between police and multiple suspects. One policeman, Officer Higgins was killed as were 5 suspects. The fifteen year old daughter of the ringleader, Joseph Reiner, has been placed in protective custody.

The case will be going before the grand jury soon. A trial is expected to begin shortly thereafter unless defendants waive their right to a trial by their peers.

Mine Collapse on Squaw Mtn; No Inj 2014 Apr 17 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

Pokoh's Peak, CO - Saturday, April 20th, 2014

It was reported today that an experimental shaft dug into Squaw Mountain by Patriot Mining and Resource Extraction LLC collapsed on Thursday night. PMRE spokesman Derek Echevarry said that the collapse is under investigation by company engineers, and that it was too soon to be certain of anything, but the company has a very positive outlook on what could be a very lucrative mining venture.

Using new geology scanning software, PMRE has identified the Squaw Mountain site as an 'almost guaranteed' site for extraction of pitchblende, the common name for uranium ore. They estimate that the wealth extracted from the site could top the tens of billions. PRME has an outstanding with the United States Department of Defense for supplying domestic uranium for a variety of uses.

Carter Clymer Murdered 2014 May 17 Media (Heron)

______________________________________________________________________________

<This news story gets reported on all the national channels.>

INVESTIGATION CONTINUES IN ASSASINATION

Rancher/Activist Shot on Ranch; No Leads Yet

Washington County, Colorado: Police and FBI are still looking for a suspect in the murder of Carter Clymer, 71, of Washington County, Colorado. Clymer, a rancher and state's rights activist, was shot on the porch of his ranch on the night of May 14th. Witnesses reported hearing a helicopter and seeing a black SUV driving past the ranch. Police are not commenting on the investigation at this time.

Carter Clymer had been a fixture of Northeaster Colorado for his entire life. The Clymer Ranch had been settled by his family since the 1870s; he was a descendent of George Clymer, one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. He had been one of the leaders of the Northern Colorado Secession Movement, which wished to petition the state and the Country to form a new state out of a collection of rural counties, accusing Denver of being too culturually distinct to properly serve as a state government.

Concerns are that the more radical aspects of the secession movement will see this as an attempt to silence their movement. Fringe members of the movement have been put on the FBI's domestic terrorism list.

2 Women Drown in Reservoir 2014 Jun 16 Media (Gyrfalcon)

Monday, June 16th, 2014 -Two vacationing University of Missouri - Columbia students died when they apparently drowned in Fall River Reservoir in northwestern Clear Creek County over the weekend. Meredith L Yancey, 20, of Normal, Illinois, and Susan A Hodges, 21, of Creve Coeur, Missouri were found by passersby and contacted the Clear Creek Sherriff's department, where a rescue team was dispatched to recover the bodies from the lake. The two had hitchhiked through Pokoh's Peak Thursday evening, and apparently were either given a ride to the reservoir or walked there, and camped overnight. Sometime over the weekend, apparently both drown by the lake. Sherriff Daniel Cagatay refused to comment on whether there was any foul play suspected, but he did indicate that alcohol was involved.

"Have You Seen These Dogs?"

**The picture is a grainy one, obviously not from a high resolution camera. It shows a group of five canines near a fence, most large and resembling Tamaskan Dogs. Two of the animals have noses raised as though scenting the air: one completely gray with an unusual pattern on its head and the other smaller canine mottled grey with splashes and swirls of dark and lighter fur. Pacing the edge of the fencing, a large gray dog with black marking shares the edge with another large red and black canine, along with a pure black dog of the same size.**

This pack of dogs has been sighted on the eastern outskirts of Pokoh's Peak, and are believed to have attacked residents in the area. In order to avoid painful rabies treatments, the family has asked the public to help in the capture of these dogs, or identification of their owners. Please give any information to your local police department.

Missing Priest, Others Found in Fire Aftermath

Pokoh's Peak, CO - July 13, 2014 - The continuing investigation into the fire that destroyed a building on the premises of a Pokoh's Peak business has taken a turn for the bizarre. At a news conference today, Agent Devin Williams of the Colorado Bureau of Investigation announced the discovery of the remains of at least eight people at the site, not including the two men who were known to have died on May 24th. One of the missing has been positively identified as Father Peter Earl Daratsos, a priest from Saint Catherine's Greek Orthodox Church, in Greenwood Village, a southern suburb of Denver. Daratsos has been reported missing since 1985, and was last seen in the Pokoh's Peak area. While Agent Williams refused specifics regarding the victims, he did say with "one hundred percent certainty", that the deaths of brothers Benjamin and Frank McCarthy, and the death of Father Daratsos, are being treated as homicides.

Agent Williams detailed that besides the three bodies, six other "complete" corpses were discovered, while unidentified parts of "up to four" more were found. While technically the investigation is under the jurisdiction of the Jefferson County District Attorney's Office and Sherriff's Department, assistance is being rendered by both the Pokoh's Peak Police Department and Colorado Bureau of Investigation, Agent Williams of the CBI delivered the briefing to the press because he is the senior forensic specialist on site.

Sinkhole Destroys Mining Site 2014 Jul 14 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

Tuesday, July 15th, 2014 - Pokoh's Peak was shook last evening by an earthquake that registered 4.3 on the Richter scale and centered on southeastern Clear Creek County. Although the tremor was barely felt by most residents of the city, the Patriot Mining and Resource Extraction site on Squaw Mountain was nearly totally destroyed by seismic event. Geologists from the United States Geological Survey and Colorado State University arrived this morning to observe the damage which was described by one as a 'freak occurrence' and another scientist as 'the possibility of a hidden, active fault in the area".

PMRE LLC had been contracted with the Bureau of Land Management and the Department of Defense whether Squaw Mountain had a significant amount of pitchblende, an ore that is used for the processing of uranium. This is the second seismic event in the history of the examination site, as there was a much smaller cave-in back in late April. When asked whether this new incident would deter the project, PMRE spokesman Derek Echevarry said that no decision had been made, and that the company's officers would consult with specialists and the DoD.

The tremor, while causing tremendous damage at the site, caused no serious injuries. Henry Alfred Lonegran, of Pokoh's Peak, a security guard working for GardaWorld International, was found at the site half clothed and suffering from exposure. He told reporters that he had been trapped by the tremor in the onsite building, and being buried by mud, 'when God sent his mountain angels to rescue me'. He refused further comment.

Arson destroys vacant building 2014 Aug 15 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

Friday, August 15th, 2014 - Pokoh's Peak police officials are investigating a confirmed arson at Commanche and Eaton yesterday morning. Local residents noted thick smoke coming out of the old Emmerson's Warehouse building about 7:15am Thursday morning. The one hundred and forty year old building was fully involved within ten minutes and once the fires were declared put out at 9:30am, the building was condemned.

The building, which had been in receivership for the city for twenty years, was a known trouble spot in the stressed Commanche and Eaton neighborhood. Incidents including gang violence, drug trafficking killings, prostitution and vagrancy, and to this list can be added arson. An unnamed police source on the arson squad said "Someone wanted this place torched real bad. No finesse, just brute force."

Five dead in 'mysterious' incident 2014 Aug 31 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

Sunday, August 27th, 2014 - The bad luck Patriot mining project on the western slopes of Squaw Mountain has escalated into actual deaths, as five security guards were found slain after what looks to be a fire fight in the early hours of Saturday the 26th. Both Clear Creek County law enforcement officers, state representatives of the Colorado Bureau of Investigation, and the Defense Intelligence Agency personnel (the part of the federal Department of Defense that investigates and protects military installations) have been there since day break that morning. No reporters or other civilians were allowed at the site between Colorado Highway 106 and Squaw Valley Road.

Speaking from his office in Denver, Patriot Mining and Resource Extraction LLC owner Harold Ulharich issued a statement saying that he was saddened at the loss of life and would comment more when the official investigation was completed. An unidentified employee at PMRE LLC stated that the Ulhariches were heartbroken, and even questioning whether to continue the project, despite the fact that recent explorations had shown promising results. The employee was concerned about his employment status, as he was a registered alien worker.

Police sources informed the paper that there is a great deal of confusion in the investigation, especially concerned with the reason why. One anonymous police source was quoted as saying "/deleted/ all if anyone knows what went down there. It's a damn charnel house."

Police suspect terrorists in Mtn d 2014 Sep 02 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

Tuesday, September 2, 2014 - The fire fight that killed five people and destroyed over three million dollars of equipment in a fire fight on the western slopes of Squaw Mountain on August 26th is believed to be the work of the notorious international ecoterrorist group the Earth Liberation Movement. If that is correct, it is the most violent attack in the organization's history.

At a press conference today, Clear Creek County Sheriff Daniel Cagatay showed pictures of graffiti on the destroyed mining equipment of Patriot Mining and Resource Extraction, as well gave general information on the dead and the timeline of the event. Also present was Commander Alan Toland of the United States Navy who serves as the liaison for the government contract for the Squaw Mountain project, John Larson of the United States Bureau of Land Management, and Carlos Ugarte of Spitfire Security Systems, who the dead men worked for. Notably absent was any representative of PMRE, especially the usually vocal president, Harold Ulharich.

Sheriff Cagatay outlined briefly that with the photographic evidence, and some "electronic data" secured by the Defense Intelligence Agency, they are fairly certain a large and well-armed terrorist raiding party surprised and overwhelmed the site. "What we don't know, is why this site, and more especially, if these criminals are still in the area." The sheriff said that the investigation will continue.

Local shelter scene of neglect 2014 Sep 05 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

Saturday, September 6th, 2014 - Daily News reporters discovered that one of the local homeless shelters in Pokoh's Peak is overrun with vermin and poses a potential health threat to its residents and the city at large.

(photo of a shelter room with cots, with at least a score of black and gray rats crawling everywhere)

The Helping Hands Homeless Shelter at Comanche and Shadow was the scene of an investigation into negligent practices and unhealthful conditions at the charity run organization. Reports of rats and insects along with allegations of abuse by staff of those they were commissioned to help were confirmed by reporters in a surprise inspection Friday afternoon. Photographic evidence shows that although the managing office was in good repair, the actual sleeping quarters for indigents passing through Pokoh's Peak were in disgusting condition.

Sarah Macklin, the general manager of the Helping Hands Homeless Shelter, categorically denied that state of the building, responding to a request for comment by stating, "I don't know what the hell you are talking about." Douglas Askind, a Vice President at Matrix Financial in downtown Denver, and a member of the board that oversees the shelter, when reached at his home last night, said he was unaware of the conditions and he was confident that the board would look into it immediately. No other board member decided to cooperate with the investigation.

Juliette MacAdal, a psychiatric social worker and adjunct professor at Colorado College, decried the state of the shelter. "These people, who are the neediest in our society, and who are the most vulnerable to the upcoming winter, depend on shelters such as these to survive. The mentally ill must be protected and nurtured until they can be found safe accommodations, and to submit these individuals to these conditions is one of the most heinous of acts."

While there was a preponderance of forensic evidence, those same sources say that a lack of motive hampered the direction of the case. Detective Derrick Ward, the lead detective on the case, declined to comment to calls by the media.

The case was dogged by interdepartmental feuding, and it has been rumored by some on the case that the lead investigator attached the investigation by the Colorado Bureau of Investigation was removed from the case by superiors and suspended with pay for 'mental health reasons'.

Business pulls out of Squaw Mtn Pr 2014 Sep 08 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

Tuesday, September 9th, 2014 - Patriot Mining and Resource Extraction, LLC, based in Greely, has announced they are officially pulling out of the Squaw Mountain pitchblende mining project, and will be filing a Chapter 11 bankruptcy in court immediately. Harold Ulharich, in a subdued press conference, said while he had wanted to do something for the armed forces since his middle son had perished in Afghanistan six years ago as a US Navy medic, the threat to his two remaining sons and his company's workers from the natural disasters of seismic activity and now ecoterrorism. "It may not be fair," stated the tearful Ulharich, "but I guess G_d didn't want me to do it in the first place."

Business analysts note that word has it that the test results on the mountain were positive, so Patriot Mining is walking away from a possible return of millions of dollars. The Department of Defense is expected to announce that they will begin taking bids on the site within the month. PRME, which employs twenty five people all told, will recoup some of their losses. Financial Advisor Greg Packer stated that "If PRME gets a good enough bid for their rights, they might be able to survive. If no one bids, they are definitely nonfunctional. Either way, their stock is not a good bet."

Squaw Mountain license revoked 2014 Sep 17 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

Wednesday, September 17th, 2014 - Washington DC - In a surprise development today, a rider attached to an omnibus spending bill which was passed by Congress to continue certain anti-terrorism programs across the globe impacted close to home. The amendment instructed the Department of the Interior's Bureau of Land Management to revoke the development license of Squaw Mountain in Clear Creek County. The amendment, originally sponsored by Senator Bernie Sanders (D-VT), returns the land to the protected status of the Arapaho National Forest. Senator Sanders protested that "Destroying our last remaining wilderness to mine uranium to power overpriced over powered nuclear aircraft carriers is probably the worse idea that came out of the Pentagon since Abu Ghraib."

The Squaw Mountain site, an exploratory mining area looking for the uranium ore pitchblende, was ran by Patriot Mining and Resource Extraction, LLC of Greely until a combination of unstable geological structures and a Earth Liberation Front attack that killed five security guards caused the site to temporarily shut down. With the Congressional revocation of the license to explore Squaw Mountain, PRME LLC filed for bankruptcy within an hour of the passage of the bill. In the meantime, the final cleanup of the site will be left to the Environmental Protection Agency, and should be finished within the week.

Bombing in NM; Lt Gov Dies 2014 Oct 08 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

Albuquerque, NM - October 9th, 2014 - 76 people died when a bomb exploded yesterday evening and collapsed the Sandia Peak Tramway near Albuquerque. Among the dead was controversial Lieutenant Governor Hal Morley, whose connections to militia groups along the border had been a focus of local news for the past two weeks. Morley, 64, was hosting a wine and cheese tasting aboard the tramway to begin raising funds for a senatorial run in two years, when the large bomb exploded under the second support tower, plunging the car of the private party into Domingo Baca Canyon. The party car had been ascending, but the resulting damage to the support tower caused the descending tram car, holding tourists from across the United States and the world, tumbling down the Sandia Crest.

Although no one is calling the bombing a terrorist attack, the Federal Bureau of Investigation is flying agents because of the foreign nationals who died, including Willem Deevers, MEP, who represented the Netherlands in the European Parliament, who was vacationing with his wife, his daughter and her family and was on the public tram car. State and Bernalillo County officials have not released a statement, but sources confirm there were two survivors in the public car, although they are in critical condition in the Trauma Center at the University of New Mexico Hospital.

Morley had come under criticism for his outspoken comments about controlling immigration at the border, and had been recorded visiting militia groups who voluntarily patrol the border. Most of his staff was at the function as well, along with such influential people as Earnesto Carnelo, one of the largest developers in the region, Timothy Jenkins, vice president of finance for the NHL's Phoenix Coyotes, and Alicia Voelker, director of the Sandia National Laboratories and Lockeheed Martin, Inc. Recovery of the bodies from Domingo Baca Canyon will be difficult, as it is very rough terrain. Debris from TWA Flight 260 that crashed in the canyon in 1955 still remains there to this day.

Feds focus on domestic terrorism 2014 Oct 11 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

Albuquerque, NM - October 12th, 2014 - Investigators from the Federal Bureau of Investigation have not publically commented on Thursday's disaster that killed 76 people when a bomb destroyed a support tower of the Sandia Peak Tramway, but sources inside the Bureau and the Albuquerque Police department have told reporters that the investigation is concentrating on a possible domestic terrorist group. Lt Governor Morley, who died in the blast, was a known proponent of the highly divisive militias that patrol the Mexican border and ostensibly report illegal immigrants attempting to cross said border.

A developing picture of the timeline of the explosion suggests that it was targeting the lieutenant governor, as initial forensic examinations confirm the presence of radio controlled detonators, and the bombs exploded as the upward car, holding Morley's fundraising party, had just passed the second support tower. It also has been reported that at least one pair of Bureau agents investigating the explosion have gone missing.

Air crash nearly larger disaster 2014 Oct 17 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

October 18, 2014 - Albuquerque, NM (AP) In a city still recovering from a terrorist bombing that took the life of the lieutenant governor less than two weeks ago, Albuquerque narrowly avoided another disaster when a Antonov An-140 turbo prop plane crashed just off the runway after narrowly missing the flight tower at Albuquerque international Sunport late yesterday afternoon. The turbo prop passenger aircraft bounced off the east west runway, and skidded through a chain link fence and came to rest in an empty area of Kirtland Air Force Base.

The incident occurred about 5:20pm, when a rare thunderstorm was sweeping over the area; investigators believe that the storm may have had something to do with the crash, as the plane was dangerously off course. The control tower, which controls both the international and military flights, suffered only minor damage, as the front wheel of the large Russian made aircraft merely ripped off a railing on the top of the tower. Major Chris Grasni, who was in command of the tower at the time of the incident, remarked to reports. "I have no idea how it missed us - with its trajectory, it was a miracle that that downburst happened at that exact time!"

The two pilots of the aircraft were injured and in the Kirkland Air Force base infirmary. Captain Edguardo Velez Mirellies has worked for the Aereo Servicio Guerrero for twenty four years, and has nearly five hundred hours in the Antonov An-140, a newer plane that was recently purchased by the regional Mexican Airline. It was loaded with drilling equipment and mining explosives on a direct flight from Hermosillo to Pierre, North Dakota with a stopover in Albuquerque. Fortunately, while the Antonov is a structural total loss, the explosives surprisingly did not detonate.

Sources say that if the cargo plane had hit the control tower, Albuquerque could have been without a working airport for at least three months, as a replacement could not have been finished until the New Year. All flights would have to been routed through Santa Fe.

Viral Video: OMGWTF by Lobos87101 2014 Oct 26 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

Transcript of YouTube Video from Lobos 87101 posted 0203 10-26-2014

Hand held cellphone with video capabilities is showing a street scene at night. The camera seems to be at least on the roof two stories up, and the camera is a bit shaky, as if being held over a cement railing. The street itself is brightly lit with street lamps casting a yellow glow over the all surfaces. Nearly directly across the street is a Fallas Paredes discount store, and the cellphone is trying to concentrate on a Albuquerque black and white 2012 Dodge Charger that is parked in front of it, pointing to the left, and splayed as if to block traffic. One officer (later identified as Sergeant Joseph Avery) can be seen putting on a ballistic vest and getting a shotgun out of the trunk.

Unidentified male #1 "(in Spanish) The white policeman is getting a shotgun. Who do they are going after?"

Unidentified male #2 "(in Spanish) Shhh. Shhh. They will hear you, idiot."

A silver 2015 GMC Arcadia pulls up behind the police officer and stops. A white man in a leather jacket, blue jeans and shaded aviator glasses exits the vehicle, and says something in the direction of the police, but this is inaudible. A Hispanic police officer who had been off camera before, who has on a ballistic vest, comes back to the new white man, gesturing for him to get back in the vehicle. Three other men exit the doors of the Arcadia, two white men and an African American man. The first two pull out what looks to be a cross between a machine gun and a Stormtrooper pistol from Star Wars, while the African American man goes to the trunk.

Unidentified male #1 "(in Spanish) Holy excrement! Look at that."

Unidentified male #2 "(in Spanish) Hey, we have to leave very fast. This is very bad."

Unidentified male #1 "(in Spanish) You can go, coward. I am going to record this for YouTube"

The Hispanic police officer steps back with his hand on his sidearm, while the man in the shades talks to him, and the other two men aim their weapons down the street. Sgt Avery grabs the Hispanic police officer's shoulder points down the street with great urgency.

The camera pans that direction. At the end of the block is a large crowd of people of all races and ages moving in a group. They are led by a small woman of Hispanic descent, but she seems to have very long fingernails and malformed ears and jaw. The other people seem to have issues with their mouths as well.

Unidentified male #1"I(in Spanish) Mother of G_d."

The second unidentified male tries to grab the first one, but when the first one resists, he leaves.

Sergeant Avery uses an electronic bullhorn. "This is Sergeant Avery of the Albuquerque Police department. You - you need get off the street and return to your homes."

As he finishes that, the man in the leather jacket has pulled a sword resembling a Marine's mameluke officer sword from the Arcadia, and is brandishing it. The African American man from the Arcadia has retrieved what looks to be a World War II era flame thrower from the trunk and is putting it on. The crowd advancing on the two vehicles does not stop, with the young woman in front gives an obscene gesture to the men around the vehicles.

The unidentified man in the sunglasses shouts to the others . "GIVE'EM HELL!" and he and the other two men start firing on full automatic. The melee gets confused as the men's ammunition seems to consist entirely of tracer ammunition. Unidentified male #1 ducks behind what seems to be a stone wall and you can hear him breathing heavy. After a few moments, he raises the camera above the stone wall on top of the building and points it in the general direction of the vehicle.

What can be seen is the man in the shades decapitating what seems to be a sixtyish white woman with an old style hairdo as she tries to grab him. The police car is swarmed with the crowd, and the Hispanic police officer seems to be being pinned on the hood and bitten by several of the attackers. The African American man ignites the flamethrower and directs it at the police car and any of the attacking swarm that is in his field of view, incinerating the Hispanic police officer and those pinning him. The small woman with the ears tears off the rear left passenger door of the police car, and throws it like a discus at the African American man. It cuts him in half, whereupon the flamethrower explodes, exploding the GMC Arcadia as well, and there seems to have been more explosives in the SUV, as when it explodes it rises ten feet in the air.

At this point the unidentified male #1 abandons any pretense of filming, and runs with the phone to a door and a set of dark stairs down. Once there, he points his camera back to the sky. A dark helicopter has appeared and from its side, someone opens up with a mini-gun. Although the bullets may be tracers, it almost looks more like energy blasts coming from the helicopter. Suddenly, the camera view is whipped around, and the phone drops to the ground. One can hear the voice of a man with the accent of northern California. "You're lucky, Brah. I got a job for you."

Governor decries hoax 2014 Oct 26 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

Santa Fe, NM, October 27th, 2014 - The Governor of New Mexico today held a press conference early this morning to address a viral video that has been spreading worldwide after appearing on YouTube a little more than twenty four hours ago. The video, posted by someone under the username of Lobos87101, shows what seems to be a small unit action between a group of people and two Albuquerque policemen and four men armed with heavy weapons on a street in the southeastern part of the city.

On the steps of the state house in Santa Fe, the governor was adamant that this was a hoax. "I am telling the citizens of Albuquerque, and I am telling the citizens of New Mexico, and I'm telling all of America, that we are not in some small scale war in the largest city in the state. The video, while realistic looking, is obviously some computer generated forgery capitalizing on an unfortunate tragedy that did claim the life of two city police officers. Sergeant Joseph Avery and Officer Gaudenzio Hernandez Urrutia were slain yesterday during a routine traffic stop at Zuni Road and Wyoming Boulevard, where we believe they unknowingly pulled over a GMC Arcadia with members of Los Zetas inside, which we surmised were transporting illegal drugs and weapons to places unknown. I can guarantee you there were no flamethrowers or Star War guns or black helicopters or /vampires/ in any part of this. This is just the fevered dreams of those who wish these things were real, and it distracting for our continued vigilance in protecting our borders. I have been assured by the FBI and our police organizations that a full investigation will be conducted. Meanwhile, I will be attending the funerals of both the slain officers in Albuquerque in the next few days."

Tech sites and news organizations have already been attempting to solve the mystery of what is being called the Lobos tape. Joshua Feeney of Wired magazine has already noted that the futuristic looking weapons show in the video are very real, being the Austrian made Steyr AUG assault rifles, used today by the militaries of of Argentina, Australia, Bolivia, Ecuador, Ireland, Luxembourg, Malaysia, New Zealand, Saudi Arabia, Tunisia, Pakistan, and the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Division.

Mr. Ashcroft has been ruled out as a suspect, being in Washington, DC at the time.

Federal agents kill Albuquerque bo 2014 Nov 07 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

November 8th, 2014 - Early yesterday morning, agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives of the Department of Justice raided a homestead approximately one and a half miles north of Tucumcari, New Mexico, and engaged in a brief gun battle with the lone resident of the building at the site. August Evan Vermillion, 68, died at the scene due to several bullet wounds from the shootout. ATF agents then found conclusive evidence that Vermillion was behind the bombing of the Sandia Mountain Tramway one month ago on October 8th, due to materials and recorded media found at the house. The ATF also provided reporters access to those documents, where Vermillion described more plans in his self-declared war against the federal government.

Local residents of Tucumcari described Vermillion as friendly enough to individuals, some even calling him generous to neighbors and strangers alike, but his severe anti-government stance was no surprise to them. Mr. Vermillion had publicly stated that he had purchased the insolated property to maintain his freedom, and had used funds generated from his thirty-five years as a pipeline welder to maintain his own generators and septic system. Mr. Vermillion believed the government was coming to take his firearms, and imprison him for his refusal to pay income taxes and his expose on' the influence of the captains of international finance to control the world, as noted on his website "Keeping An Eye on the Davos Stormtroopers" at www.antidavos.com. Mr. Vermillion was targeting Lieutenant Governor Hal Morley, since he believed Morley's populism regarding immigration was an act, and that certain powers were going to name him Head of the Occupation of the Southwestern United States Department after "Zero hour".

Mr. Vermillion was survived by his younger sister, three nieces and eight grandnephews and grandneices.

+bb DOUGLAS PASS, CO. A meteor crashed into Highway 139 near Douglas Pass, Colorado, at 6:15 a.m. The impact destroyed five cars and injured an estimated thirteen people. The crater left by the impact has destroyed a portion of the two-lane highway. In addition, the surrounding cliffs have suffered severe damage and have partially collapsed onto the road.

While maintenance crews have begun to repair the damaged roadway, spectators claim there was more than a meteor collision. Barry Manderville, age 41, who lives in Grand Junction and frequently commutes to Rock Springs, claims he heard howling in the night.

"I stopped to help a wounded woman. Her leg had been cut deep, looked like bite marks. That's when I heard it. Creature like none I ever heard before, howling so loud that I ran away. Wound up two miles south before I knew what the heck I was doing."

Douglas Pass is approximately three hours from Pokoh's Peak.

<OOC>: Accompanying the article is a picture of Highway 139. A large rock sits in the center of it, and a giant crater has made the road completely impassible. There are several totalled cars surrounding the crater. All inquiries should come to Crow!

November 11th, 2014 - Sphere Laboratories, LLC, a new technology firm that has recently located to Pokoh's Peak, has donated $5,000 to Jefferson County Public Schools, to be earmarked for the district to participate in the 52nd Denver Metro Regional Science Fair, February 25th and 26th at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science in Denver. The proceeds from this general donation will help defray the costs of transportation, accommodation, and pay the entry fees for students who would usually be unable to do so.

Doris Heiler, the 5th grade teacher at the Pokoh Reservation Indian Normal School, expressed her happiness. "This is wonderful. Most of my students find it difficult to find enough money to eat a healthy meal, but that doesn't meant this won't help inspire them to make more of themselves." She commented that Native American representation in the state's regional science fairs usually average a dismal three percent.

Pokoh's Peak, C.O.: Thorne Industries, a fracking company out of Washington, has proven itself one of the most successful companies in oil over the past decade in the northwest United States. After transitioning to fracking several years ago, the company has grown exponentially. However, many residents of Pokoh's Peak are worried that the company's new interest in the town may result in a loss in quality of life. Scarlett Thorne, CEO of Thorne Industries, begs to differ.

"What we offer is a commitment to any community we enter," Thorne says. "We promise to funnel money into the community, provide jobs for citizens, healthcare, benefits, fundraisers - my office does not rest. We are committed to the homes and families of the people who work for, and with, us. We strive to be more than a company."

Thorne Industries, which became a subsidiary of Pentex not long ago, has established new offices in Pokoh's Peak. When asked to comment about billing and property complaints received over the past three months, official spokesman declined to comment.

Friday, November 28th, 2014 - Denver, CO - The Denver Police Department has issued a missing person's alert for Robert Rudyard Wiley, 48, an employee of the Denver County Parks Department, whose city vehicle was found parked in a accessible parking space in the Colorado Mills Mall in Lakewood. Wiley was last seen at Matthews-Winters Park near Mount Morrison to check on a reported drainage problem that may have been aggravated by the recent rain. After checking in at 5:15pm and informing his office he was headed for the park, it had been assumed that afterwards he merely went home with the vehicle, which is allowed by county guidelines. He did not show up for work Thursday, but no suspicion was raised until his vehicle was found by a police officer parked in the accessible parking space outside of the Super Target at the mall.

Wiley is separated from his wife of twenty three years who is currently visiting relatives in Strasburg. He has four children, ranging in ages from eighteen to ten. Anyone who has any information regarding Mr. Wiley please contact the City and County of Denver tip line, at 1-800-433-6837.

Friday, November 28th, 2014 - Pokoh's Peak, CO - An unidentified woman was found in a Commanche Circle storm drain mid- morning on Thursday the 27th. The body apparently had been there for over a week, but during the steady rain the area had been receiving, blocked up the storm drain and caused city workers to discover her. Police sources say it was too early to determine whether there was foul play involved, orhow she ended up in the storm drain, but a city engineer who commented off the record found it unlikely she went to such a narrow pipe voluntarily. The engineer remarked "She would have had to crawl that far in by pushing herself forward, in the dark, with her feet."

The woman has been described as five foot four, 130 to 140 pounds, with mid length brown hair, and blue eyes. She was wearing blue jeans, a pink and white University of Colorado sweatshirt, and a green polyurethane winter coat, with black and white Reeboks. No identification was found. If you have information regarding this individual, please contact the Pokoh's Peak Police Department.

The picture is snapped at the precise time of an explosion from the inside the mobile home. While most of the blast is localized in the structure, individual gray and white smoke trails fan out from the mobile home like a firework, shooting half the length of the park itself)

Friday, November 28th, 2014 - Pokoh's Peak, CO - A fire in a mobile home caused explosions that woke up most of Pokoh's Peak and threatened the safety of over forty residents early this morning. Police and fire crews are still combing the scene as of 11 am, just before this issue went to press, combing over what exactly happened last night. Sources say that there was one large explosion that destroyed a van and started the mobile home situated at Lot 20 on fire, and then several smaller explosions from the mobile home. Some observers put forward the estimation that there was heavy weaponry stored within the trailer, and that the explosions (as pictured above) were the results of white phosphorous ammunition 'cooking off'. One other trailer and two vehicles were heavily damaged by the fire.

Fortunately enough, no one was killed. One woman, Freda Stoskopf, 61, was admitted to HOSPITAL NAME after a cardiac incident, however, doctors have updated that as of this morning, she is doing very well and would likely be released shortly. The trailer that burned was listed as being owned by one Katherine Jean Nanni, but the paper has found that she has been imprisoned in Alderson Federal Prison Camp, in Alderson, West Virginia, since being convicted of kidnapping in Florida in 1991. The second trailer and vehicle was owned by Christopher Ryan Harrison, who is currently working as a ranch hand in Edmonton, Alberta. When reached by phone, Mr. Harrison had not been notified that his trailer had been damaged by a fire by government officials as of yet.

POKOH'S PEAK (Colo.): Patrons of Wolf's Mantle Tavern received a scare on Saturday, Nov. 30, when two costumed actors began fighting. The fight scene was part of a new film called "Spiderlanch vs. Wolfquake." The film, which is still in production, is about a chaotic battle between a large spider and wolf. The film's directors wanted an honest response from their extras, so, without permission from either the establishment or their clientele, sprung the actors into the tavern and had them attack.

"Honestly, I don't remember anything," said one patron. "I ran for my life! Whatever they're making, it's going to be really scary."

The owner of Wolf Mantle Tavern has reached out to its patrons and offered a $100 retroactive paycheck as well as a free meal as a peace offering for the unexpected surprise.

Charity Event 2014 Dec 07 Media (Crow)

______________________________________________________________________________

Pokoh's Peak, CO (AP): It is not often that a species becomes un-extinct, but at least one species has. In the small town of Pokoh's Peak, Col., the short-faced bear has returned in small numbers. The bear was believed to be extinct, having been hunted down close to 11,000 years ago by primitive men.

Arthur Nazarov, an environmental lawyer from Denver, has claimed responsibility for discovering the species. Recently, he held a charity event to raise awareness and funds for new legislation that would protect the short-faced bears from harm.

"This is an important moment in history. These bears will offer us tremendous insight, and afford us an opportunity to study walking legends," Nazarov said.

Sadly, the charity event was cut short by a prank. Officials are still uncertain who is responsible.

"I'm still accepting donations, though. We need ten more backers. Remember, you donate ten grand, you get to choose a name for the bear you adopt," Nazarov said.

<OOC>: Thus far, five PCs have donated. If you would like to donate, either submit a job marked for Crow or send Crow a +mail. Thanks!

Slaughter on Pokoh's Parkway 2014 Dec 23 Media (Crow)

______________________________________________________________________________

Pokoh's Peak, CO: Roughly two weeks ago, police found evidence of multiple homicides on Pokoh's Parkway, the road that links Pokoh's Peak, CO, to Denver. Press were prevented from investigating the sight due to the murders' location, which was on private property.

"We're prepared to release information, now, after a series of images regarding these homicides were released online," Sheriff Daniel Catagay said. "In short, we believe the five people who were found dead to be close friends or acquaintances. The murders were most likely ritualistic, perhaps religious. We're investigating local practices for more information. However, I'm confident the men and women responsible for these murders will be brought to justice."

The images were posted anonymously online. They first appeared on forums in the Deep Web before appearing on Tumblr and Reddit threads. They feature decapitated and mutilated corpses, strange runic symbols, and a message that reads, "We are coming for you, Dreamers."

<There is an image of the message, "We are coming for you, Dreamers," which is written in bold text on the side of a rock.>

<There is a second image of a symbol. It looks like an upside down lightning-bolt with an oxen-yolk near the bottom - a large X has been painted through it. It is also painted on a rock.>

Catagay said it was not clear who had originally posted the images online.

OOC: If you have Garou-Lore 2 or above, your character can recognize the symbol: it is the upside-down symbol for the Black Furies. If you have Garou-Lore 1, you may recognize that it is a symbol Garou use. Questions should go to Crow. :)

Pokoh's Peak, CO: Initial reports from the capital suggest that efforts to turn a section of Arapaho National Park into a Federal Reserve for a small contingent of short-faced bears have been successful.

"This is a good day for Pokoh's Peak and its new friends, the short-faced bear. New commerce will arrive in the city, and research into these fascinating creatures will continue," Arthur Nazarov, one of the men responsible for pushing the legislation, said.

"Thanks to the charitable donations of many Pokoh's Peak residents, and large donations from the Blake and Saxe families, we were able to raise enough money to make our voices heard," Nazarov said.

The reserve plans to include a laboratory, housing for researchers, and an information booth for tourists who happen to hike through the pass.

"The area will still be remote. We like that. These are dangerous animals, so some hiking trails will be diverted to keep people safe," Nazarov said.

Movie to be Filmed in Town 2014 Dec 26 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

Saturday, December 27, 2014 (Pokoh's Peak, C0) It was announced today by the Colorado Board of Tourism, that a company called Maskerade Movies LLC is beginning production on a feature film, and that it will be looking for local talent. The company is concentrating on for low-budget horror films, has held a national competition for film students, offering them the chance to direct one of their movies. A winner has been chosen, and they will bring the production to Pokoh's Peak.

"Spiderlanch vs. Wolfenquake is, I think, going to redefine the genre of schlock horror!" says Rianna Forens, the winner of the competition. "The best horror films are the ones where you laugh, I think, and we've got some great moments in the film planned. Wolfenquake is the ancient wolf spirit of the Lakota, who can shatter the earth with his paw, awakened by the defiling Spiderlanch, an evil demon-spider brought to life by some kids who accidentally found a real magic spell and couldn't control it. When they come together, humanity loses. I can't wait to get started! This part of Colorado is perfect, with the gorges, and the snow! We're hoping to bring in some local talent, so we'll be holding auditions soon."

For those local actors and actresses that are offered positions, Ms. Forens warns that any roles will be paid at scale due to the low-budget nature of the movie, but she welcomes novices looking to get their first screen credit. Maskerade Movies LLC put out a press release and states that they look forward to seeing Ms. Forens' production, and are grateful to the community of Pokoh's Peak for all their future cooperation.

Tabloid Article: Aliens Took My Ba 2014 Dec 27 Media (Crow)

______________________________________________________________________________

Have you been scanning the classifieds sections lately in your local papers? There seems to be an epidemic of missing pets. Debra lost her flatulating cockatoo, Joey his peanut-butter-loving Pit bull, Janice her hyperactive Doberman, and dear old Mrs. Franklin her promiscuous poodle... she named her Candy. Of course, there's many more, all equally hilarious, the menagerie goes on and on, go ahead, check the list.

Normally, these types of mass disappearances are indications of some kind of nihilist cult or satanist activity in the area, it's true, the good Lord told me so! But, pause for a moment, and lets think about the facts. It can't help be noticed that we're missing, so far, the mutilated remains of these poor animals. It's as if they simply vanished, disappeared, teleported out of thin air. So, do you know what I think? I finger our frequent alien visitors, those E.T.s from beyond the stars. Come on, they must of finally finished their study of us humans and our livestock. What else explains it? They've at last decided to begin their research into our domesticated pals, man's many best friends. Who can guess what their intentions are, once this new line of research is complete. If you ask me, I rather meet my fate sooner than later. I would! To that, I say, Timmy to Lassie, one more to beam up."

Mount Vernon Cemetery Vandalized 2014 Dec 27 Media (Crow)

______________________________________________________________________________

POKOH'S PEAK, Co.: During the evening of Saturday, December 27, vandals struck at the old Mount Vernon cemetery off highway 70, south of the Morrison exit, and just north of Red Rocks. A representative of the Jefferson County Sheriff department confirmed that three marked graves were excavated and cleared of their contents by the perpetrators. Currently motive for these grave desecrations is unknown, however local historians have stated that the site has long been rumored to contain buried gold.

In 1859 Dr. Joseph Castro founded the small town of Mount Vernon in the Jefferson territory, which briefly served as its capital. The site primarily provided supplies and provisions for miners working in the area. Today, it exists as a vast track of hilly, grass-covered land that has none of its original structures, save for an old, wood-fenced boneyard.

Anyone with information about this crime should contact their local law enforcement.

POKOH'S PEAK, Co.: On the morning of January 4, John Catley, a notable local historian, was discovered unconscious at his home. EMS were called to the scene, but were unable to resuscitate the elderly Pokoh's Peak resident, who was then declared dead at the scene. Investigation of the incident by local law enforcement has indicated that robbers likely struck the home the evening before, with signs evident of forced entry and a struggle. Consequently, Mr. Catley is currently suspected to have been the victim of violence from their actions, however the corner has yet to release his official cause of death. The Pokoh's Peak Police Department has stated that his case remains under active investigation, and they are encouraging anyone with information to please contact them.

Mustangs Stolen 2015 Jan 02 Media (Crow)

POKOH'S PEAK, Co.: On January 3, local rancher Beverly Paster reported that four of her prized palmetto mustangs were stolen from her property. The thoroughbreds, named Mindy, Mark, Margery, and Milton, are believed to have been taken during the early hours of the morning, under the cover of dark.

Pokoh's Peak P.D. are actively investing the disappearance of the horses, but currently have not named any suspects. One source closely involved with the case has gone on the record, stating that fingerprints lifted from the crime scene exactly match ones also taken from the house of notable historian John Catley, who was burglarized and suspected to have been murdered the following day.

Anyone with information about this crime is asked to contact their local law enforcement. The perpetrators are considered potentially armed and highly dangerous, and should not be confronted by members of the public alone.

"Hey! Yu know that nu movie they are fliming in the Peak? I got a leked script. Get a load of this!"

Wolfenquake vs. Spiderlanch script draft #0073

(OOC Script synopsis: The early version of the script opens with a group of nerdy LARP'ers pretending at being wizards out on a camping trip throwing snappy pop culture one-liners designed to appeal to current young adults, with examples like "I cast lightning bolt at the darkness!" and "Hey, who drank all the Magic Potions!" in a reference to the cooler of beer. One of the LARP'ers, has found a real magic tome, and while pretending to everyone that he is reading the "Tome of Knowledge", accidentally summons the demon Spiderlanch. Spiderlanch proceeds to eat most of the LARPers in what is described as a 'fantastically gory' scene with 'multiple limbs strewn about' (one wizard LARPer cries out "The baffle stick wand - it does nothing!"). Two of the LARPers escape and find shelter at an old Indian's log cabin in the woods. When they tell him about Spiderlanch, the Indian recognizes the return of the demon, and decides that their only hope is to summon the ancient Lakota wolf-spirit, Wolfenquake, to battle the demon. They summon Wolfenquake by having the two LARPers have sex, and when the slavering CGI wolfman appears, the Indian requests he deal with Spiderlanch.

In the mean-time Spiderlanch has moved down into the near-by town of Pokoh's Peak, and is in process of building the giant web that will serve as the portal to allow demons to flood the world.

The old Indian insists that the two LARP'er refugees put on tribal wolf costumes and dance around a totem pole to give Wolfenquake power. There is an epic battle as Wolfenquake and Spiderlanch wage an all-out rumble in what must be CGI, destroying buildings and bridges and even parts of mountains, as they use their magical powers to devastate the landscape. The end is not yet finished.)

RogerStirlingisGod ends with the post "Straight to Video, here we come!"

Homeless Shelters Thankful 2015 Jan 09 Media (Crow)

______________________________________________________________________________

POKOH'S PEAK, CO. The homeless in Pokoh's Peak have received an unexpected surprise. Since the new year, residents of Pokoh's Peak without homes have been receiving strange, silk blankets.

"Each blanket is done in the old Ute design," says Eileen Seymoth, a professional blanket-weaver. "But in silk. The expense and craftsmanship is enormous - whoever designed and made these has probably spent a fortune, and has probably spent at least two months on each blanket."

Some members of the homeless community claim there are over forty blankets in use.

However, not every store is a happy one. "I lost my blanket in a fight," says George Firth, a man who has been out of work for three months. "It was the nicest thing I've ever owned. Soft, warm, had big threads and didn't tear. Now, it's lost. I hope I get another."

Most homeless claim the man who gave them their blanket was strange, with features that never seemed to settle. Regardless, they were happy to have received such a helpful gift.

Library Break-In 2015 Jan 10 Media (Crow)

______________________________________________________________________________

POKOH'S PEAK, CO.: In the early morning hours of Tuesday, January 6, Chilcott University's Olson library was the scene of a break in. The university's security guard, a Mr. Timothy Brown, who was on duty for the evening, clocked in, but has since disappeared and is reported missing by his employer and family. At this time his whereabouts remain unknown, though he is sought for questioning by the police.

A thorough search of the library did not indicate that any valuable periodicals or inventory were missing, making the motive of the break in unclear. The library's central map room, which features ornately beveled glass doors of the Earth, were vandalized, but otherwise the remainder of Olson's library was apparently left untouched. Although the library contains a state-of-the-art security system, the building's power seems to have been sabotaged prior to the intruder's invasion, leaving the structure dark and its many cameras inoperative. The last security footage that was recorded supposedly was of Mr. Brown doing his hourly rounds.

Anyone with information about this crime is asked to contact Pokoh's Peak Police Department.

Suicide Bombing At Local Store 2015 Jan 14 Media (Crow)

______________________________________________________________________________

Pokoh's Peak, Col.: Tradewinds Cafe, a local cafe and bookstore suffered from an attack on Tuesday. The attack left several bystanders wounded, the bomber dead, and law enforcement officers curious as to the events surrounding the bombing.

"There was no note, and no physical indication of why he did it at his residence," said one law enforcement officer. "Eye witnesses claim the man said, 'They have my kid,' but no further reasons were discovered."

The bomber has been identified as Daren Thomas Coal, a former security guard for Thorne Industries. Coal lived alone in an apartment in Pokoh's Peak. Records indicate he was released from employment when he "... allowed precious information to be unexpectedly released."

"Our hearts go out to the victims of that sad attack," said Scarlett Thorne, "and their families. Life is a precious commodity - the most precious one, in fact, second only to the secrets we bear."

Tradewinds Cafe suffered significant damage to its floor and ceiling.

"Honestly, I don't remember much. The... man, he died, and then, well, it all went blank," said Jennifer Cox, who witnessed the event. "It's weird. I woke up in a corner, covered in sweat, with some shrapnel in my arm. That's all I remember."

Police have taken one many into custody, but have yet to release his identity.

______________________________________________________________________________

Associated Press: POKOH'S PEAK, CO.: The small town of Pokoh's Peak was at the forefront of national news programs yesterday after a devastating explosion and small quake shook the town.

Police reports indicate that the explosion took place inside a Thorne Industries facility. Thorne Industries, a fracking company, has become known as one of the most successful new companies in energy.

"The facility passed a thorough quarterly-inspection two weeks ago," reports Janice Reynolds, a representative of the company. "We hold our facilities to the highest standard, and have never failed an inspection. However, we are committed to discovering what caused such a catastrophic event."

Reynolds also reports that most of the employees of the facility were absent, leaving only a small, but more than capable, crew to man the facility.

"Most of the employees were at a company dinner. The crew that was left was more than capable of handling the facility and dangerous materials. Everything was done by the book. We won't know, officially, what occurred until valuable data is recovered," Reynolds said.

Police have estimated at least twenty people may have lost their lives after the facility collapsed into a sinkhole. Another thirty individuals have been reported mild to serious injuries.

"The Pokoh's Police Department is in contact with the FBI. We're investigating the explosion and its causes. The best thing citizens can do is remain calm. Let us do our jobs," a representative of the Pokoh's Police Department said.

More information will be released as it becomes available.

POKOH'S PEAK, CO.: Several days ago, the Thorne Industries building in the city collapsed after an intense explosion that could be seen throughout the city; since then, police have revealed that twenty-eight people were injured during the explosion, and twenty-one people are reported deceased.

"Fifteen men and women were rescued during a miraculous effort," a police spokesman said. "Two men and three women risked their lives rushing into a building adjacent to Thorne Industries that was severely damaged during the explosion. No one knows exactly how they did it, but they brought those people to safety."

"They're heroes," Jackie Thomas, one of the rescued women, said. "I don't know how else to say it. Thank you - whoever you are. You saved us."

Not everyone was as fortunate. "Seven people were reported deceased in that same building. We're withholding their names as a request to grieving families," a police spokeswoman said. "Unfortunately, five others were found, too. Two of them had gathered near the front of the building after the first explosion, but they were caught and unable to escape when the Thorne Industry's building collapsed. Thirteen others were injured."

A Thorne Industries spokesperson has also revealed that ten people were working in their facility that evening, but only one survived. "We are working day and night to discover exactly what went wrong. All of our facilities and procedures are being reviewed so that such a catastrophe cannot happen again."

A memorial service for the deceased is being funded by the company. A date has not yet been scheduled.

Daughter of the Duke of Leeds Comes to Ski

     The nightlife of Pokoh's Peak is about to take off as the entourage of The Lady Samantha Osborne, youngest daughter of the Duke of Leeds, arrives in Pokoh's Peak to celebrate her 28th birthday. Lady Osborne has been at the center of several scandals involving the youth of the Royal Family. She was a childhood friend of the Duchess of Cambridge, but it was made clear that Buckingham Palace didn't want the international party girl anywhere near the future queen.

     The European press is full of stories of Lady Osborne's wild parties. Rumors have it that there's been at least one overdose a year at her annual soirrees. Strangely enough, the woman herself has never been found to have done the least little thing wrong. She arrived late last night with an entourage of people.

     Olivia Starling, the Lady Osborne's secretary revealed that the entourage will be staying in Pokoh's Peak until they 'grow tired of the skiing.' They wanted to go somewhere different for skiing this year.

Armored Car Robbery in Denver 2015 Jan 20 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

Tuesday, January 20th, 2015 - Denver, CO - law enforcement officials are actively trying to piece together the events of this Sunday night, when an Loomis Co. armored car, taking circulated currency to the Denver Branch of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City, was robbed of over 1.2 million dollars. According to traffic cameras, the car with three guards stopped in the middle of 15th street, three blocks away from the bank, and a single man exited the back of the vehicle, removed a sewer lid, and disappeared down into the underground system.

The man was described by the guards who he incapacitated as Caucasian, six feet tall, athletic, with uniquely colored, violet eyes, was wearing black slacks and a black sweater, and no coat. The guards were knocked unconscious, but not injured. The assailant was carrying a Mossberg 550 shotgun with the barrel sawed off. The guards do not remember how the man gained entry to the vehicle.

Representatives of the Federal Reserve System, as well as law enforcement from both the Colorado Bureau of Investigation and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, refused to comment on specifics, but did say that certain precautions were in place. However, the Associated Press's Ethan Kolmik, a former vice president of security for Credit Suisse USA, explained for this piece that since the money was already circulated, it was probably not yet recorded or trapped with paint cannisters. The manhunt is continuing.

Murder on the Northside 2015 Jan 22 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

January 23rd, 2014 - Pokoh's Peak , CO - In what police are saying is a "mafia-style hit", a limousine driver was murdered yesterday at the height of the persistent winter blizzard. At the BP service station at River and Lakeside, Jeffrey Hewitt, 35, of Pokoh's Peak, was gunned down while sitting in his vehicle by two men wearing heavy winter coats, and cowboy hats. Suthil Pamthoomvanh, the proprietor of the service station, told reporters that the man always reads his paper and drinks coffee after he fills up his limousine, when the men approached out of nowhere. Hewiit, who worked for ArcCorp, was a regular customer at the service station.

Police spokesmen say it is too early for any definitive answers, but as the assailants did not bother to take anything, it was not a robbery. Video cameras at the scene show the license plate of the red Ford F150 was covered by snow due to the storm. One of the men had a scarf around his face, and the other had a large beard, but both were wearing hats. Any information you can provide the Pokoh's Peak PD regarding the attack can be phoned into the station.

On the second page in the local newspaper is an article about Tradewinds Cafe, the popular establisment that was the target of a suicide bomber not long ago.

Crowds queued alongside the cafe's antique facade, hoping to be the first customers to bravely return for a coffee or a pastry.

"It sends a strong message to terrorists that we are not just going to give in to what they want. Life should go on as it always has," said Maya White, 23, Trade Wind's owner. Two weeks ago, a suicide bomber and others attacked the cafe, damaging the floor and ceiling. Fortunately, injuries to the bystanders were minor.

The town's favorite cafe, Trade Winds, is re-opened for business, much to the relief of its patrons.

PUEBLO, CO: Fire alarms loudly sounded at the old McClelland Orphanage in the wee hours of the morning on Monday, January 26, 2015. Local firefighters arrived at the scene only to discover a three alarm inferno engulfing an entire wing of the structure. It took nearly six hours and the resources of multiple battalions to finally subdue the hungry flames that were eating away at the historic structure. However, because of their heroic and valiant efforts, much of the famous site was saved from destruction. The orphanage, which currently is used as a K-8 school, contained only a skeleton crew of facility maintenance workers. It is unclear whether all employees on duty that morning managed to escape the flames. The cause of the fire is currently suspected to be arson, though Pueblo's P.D. have stated that fire marshals are still actively investigating the incident.

Anyone with information about this crime is asked to contact their local law enforcement.

Around 2 am, firefighters responded to an out of control fire in a low income district. Neighbor Cassy Cragwell, 82, says "there were some of those druggie people out there. Just like there always is. Place is going to ruin, ever since Reagan left the office. Look around us. Nothing but drugs and bars. The whole area should burn!" she scowls and shakes a cane at the camera before slamming her door shut. She is seen peeking through the curtain on the reporter's camera. Panning back to the reporter, "at least two deaths are reported, and rumors that this might have been a meth lab. People are warned to stay away from the toxic area until it is cleaned up fully." As the reporter finishes speaking, one more explosion happens, throwing a pinto high into the air, rusted car parts flying as it crashes. The house literally SHATTERS into pieces that fly out in every direction by about 50 feet, injuring the reporter and at least two firefighters. Glass explodes out of neighboring house windows, including Cassy, who dies of a heart attack and glass injuries. ((Part of a PRP ran by Aldulfr, contact him for followup))

Rocker starts local Charity 2015 Feb 05 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

February 5, 2015 - Musician Kara Raske, who apparently has made a new home in Pokoh's Peak, has used her wealth and celebrity to be the inspiration for a new charity service located in Jefferson County. "Drive Away Hunger is a new program to reach out to those who are underfed and ignored by our society," said Laura Metzger, the Operating Director of the new non-profit based on the fourth floor of the Eaton Center. "In a combination rurality exurb community like the Peak, many people can't make their way to a food distribution center. But this project, Drive Away Hunger, will synergize with existing food pantries to make sure everyone has access to the product, from the disadvantaged urban dweller, to a forgotten elderly person, and to immigrant farm labor on ranches and truck farms in the area."

At least four sixteen foot trucks have already been purchased, and painted in its trademark white and red logo. Deliveries begin next Monday the 9th, and lists have been compiled from both local government agencies and nearby non-profits. If you know of someone who needs this service, please contact Drive Away Hunger at www.DriveAwayHunger.org.

When asked if how involves Ms. Raske would be in future operations, Ms. Metzger deferred to the rocker's manager, Annette Duncan. "Kara didn't think she wanted to be part of the board of directors, since that might distract from actual work by her mere presence. But Kara plans to be continually involved in operations, and will soon begin to hold fund raisers for this endeavor." No details on these fundraisers were forthcoming.

School Board Shooting 2015 Feb 13 Media (Mockingbird)

______________________________________________________________________________

     Fridays School Board meeting was cut short before it even started. The District Superintendent came on stage to announce that cutting the arts programs had been a mistake, shortly before he drew a gun and fired it into his own head. He is listed in critical condition at Pokoh's Peak General Hospital.

     We interviewed several witnesses, most of them werent even sure what happened, but everyone agrees that it was the heroics of Donovan McGowan that saved lives. Mr. McGowan was quoted as saying "It could have been anyone It's a miracle I just pinned down the gun." If Mr. McGowan hadnt been there the wounded PhD might have tried again, or fired on bystanders!

     The School Board had an emergency session after the shooting, behind closed doors, where the decision to cut the arts programs and other recent decisions made by the Superintendent were reversed.

Sphere Industries expands in city 2015 Feb 13 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

Sunday, February 15, 2015 Pokohs Peak, CO - The medical equipment and services company Sphere Industries, LLC announced today a contract to provide medical equipment and employee services to Department of Defense run hospitals in all overseas territories. Such an contract award is easily worth $50 million dollars a year in gross receipts, and industry insiders predict that Sphere Industries, LLC will have no choice but to expand. The prime place for expansion would be the new headquarters building recently opened in 2014 in Pokohs Peak, although no announcements have been directly issued by the company. CEO and President Cassandra deAtrani opened the factory here last year instead of her native Italy, and the citys good fortune was compounded by the military contract, and company insiders say that at least one hundred white collar jobs will be created at the headquarters.

Mountain Savings Bank Security Com 2015 Feb 19 Media (Crow)

______________________________________________________________________________

POKOH'S PEAK, CO.: Yesterday, Mountain Savings Bank suffered a hacking attempt where at least one quarter of their cliental's information was stolen. Fortunately, the attack was halted by a group calling itself Pruner's Justice.

"We're tracking the records and we think an individual based in Denver is the likely culprit. We're also looking into this anti-hacking group that's calling itself Pruner's Justice," a spokeswoman of the PPD said.

Hours after the hack was made, Pruner's Justice posted a message on several Facebook walls of Pokoh's Peak more prominent citizens.

"The original messages from Pruner's Justice were in binary, and most of them were deleted," a spokeswoman for the bank said. "It translated to: 'The gift from the Pruner is a gift that taught us our own value. Your understanding is welcome, but not required.'"

Explosion Scandal 2015 Feb 19 Media (Crow)

______________________________________________________________________________

DENVER, CO.: In a press conference held today, Thorne Industries representative Janice Reynolds revealed the cause of the explosion in the Pokoh's Peak Thorne Industries building in January.

"It grieves us to report that the initial explosion was caused by a methane leak," Reynolds said. "Security footage reveals that the leak was caused by a careless employee."

The employee was not identified, but representatives of the FBI assured the public that the individual had been brought in for questioning.

"The initial explosion triggered a chain reaction, which resulted in the damage of several highly explosive materials and subsequent damage to the facility. We are taking measures, in all of our facilities, to make certain that an event like this does not occur again," Reynolds said. "We have recovered and cleaned up most of the hazardous materials that were released during the event. We're working night and day to ensure that the facility's contents cannot cause further damage."

"Scarlett Thorne is unavailable for questioning, and has been working tirelessly with efforts to clean up the site," Reynolds said, in closing, when asked if Thorne would provide a comment.

American Ninja Warrior Update 2015 Mar 01 Media (Mockingbird)

______________________________________________________________________________

American Ninja Warrior

The Obstacles for the Denver Qualifing Round have been announced!

1st Obstacle - Quintuple Step

The competitor must jump across 5 platforms that are angled 45 degrees toward the center of a water pit, and then jump to the platform at the end. The platforms are positioned alternately, left and right, across the length of the pit. They are each 60 centimeters wide, and the total length of the obstacle is 6.2 meters.

2nd Obstacle - Net Bridge

The competitor must climb across the underside of a cargo net to reach the next platform, without touching the water below.

3rd Obstacle - Rolling Log

The competitor must straddle and cling to a log 40 centimeters in diameter before kicking the ground to begin its roll down a 15 decline. Two drops were added to the supporting rails in order to jar the competitor and make it harder to continue straddling the log. The log is also notorious for coming off the tracks or halting its spin midway.

4th Obstacle - Ledge Walk

The competitor must cross two sections of ledge on a wall, with water below. The second section has two short strips sticking out of the wall at about knee height to increase the difficulty.

5th Obstacle - Double Salmon Ladder

The competitor must grab a bar which is resting on two parallel walls. The walls have seven sets of notches for the bar to rest on, with the gap between the last two sets larger than the previous ones. The bar is not bound to the wall in any way. The competitor must use his momentum to climb, raising the bar from notch to notch. After reaching the final notch, he must land the bar onto two declining tracks in a "V" shape. Once finished, they must turn themselves around, swing to another set, then move up again.

6th Obstacle - Warped Wall

The competitor must scale a concave quarter-pipe by running up and grabbing the top of the wall. The height is 5 meters and 20 centimeters.

Power Surge 2015 Mar 04 Media (Crow)

______________________________________________________________________________

POKOH'S PEAK, CO.: Power surges were reported throughout Colorado in the early hours of March 5, 2015.

Pokoh's Peak, like most of Colorado, was subject to the unexplained surges of energy. However, reports in Pokoh's Peak vary wildly from the flickering lights and destroyed surge protectors reported around the state. Some people reported that their lights turned on of their own accord. Others claimed their phones rang, and that a loud, unintelligible voice yelled at them. Several computers have been reported as going so far as to turn on, open a word processor, and begin to enter nonsense and unintelligible characters.

"It's aliens," said Aisha Novak, a student of the paranormal. "My computer told me: chtlkve'gauv'eehye. We've seen examples like this before from satellite readings."

Last year, Aisha was charged with two counts of burglary when she stole Dish Network dishes from Pokoh's Peak residents. Regardless, many believe her testimony.

"We're looking into a possible explanation with the electric companies," a representative from the Sheriff's Office said. "We're told that caged energy can occasionally make hardware, like lights, behave abnormally. It's nothing to be concerned about."

OOC: If your character has Awareness, they would have felt a powerful surge of static magic at exactly 3:31:24 a.m. on March 5th. If you wish to investigate, create a job titled: For Crow: Investigating Power Surge.

Local socialite slain in attack 2015 Mar 10 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

March 11, 2015 - Pokoh's Peak, CO - In the second violent gangland attack in six weeks, local socialite Martine Fontaine, owner of the Rolling River Country Club, was attacked in her vehicle and murdered, along with two bodyguards, early last night at the junction of Snowfall Canyon Road and River Road. Police responded to local citizenry calls of a traffic accident at the elevated junction, only to find that the assailants had pushed Ms. Fontaine's Lincoln down a thirty five foot embankment, and then proceeded to spray her vehicle with gunfire.

Pokoh's Peak Detective Franklin Adair has been placed in charge of the investigation, but it has been made clear by Chief of Police Samuel "Smokey" Johnson that all police department units will be involved in the investigation, and has requested the CBI to help in a formal submission to Colorado Springs. Detective Adair indicated that one of the two vehicles seen speeding away from the accident, a 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee, was found abandoned at a convenience store at the entrance to the Pokoh's Parkway, the main artery to Denver.

Martine Fontaine had no known next of kin, and employees of the country club are unsure of how funeral services will be held. Fontaine, known for holding holiday celebrations in the Country Club ballroom, has been a long time resident of Pokoh's Peak. The other two men who were killed in the attack have not yet been identified.

Fracking Rigs 2015 Mar 10 Media (Crow)

______________________________________________________________________________

POKOH'S PEAK, CO.: Police were notified of two incidents north and east of Pokoh's Peak on March 8, 2015. In both cases, fracking rigs owned by Thorne Industries were severely damaged due to malfunctions.

"The spills from both rigs will effect a five square mile radius," explained Donald Carpenter, a local National Forest Ranger. "Luckily, safety protocols kept the spills from becoming too severe. We expect the effected areas to suffer minimal damage. We're working with other agencies to minimize the damage, and we're optimistic."

"Both spills were caused by malfunctions in the design of the rigs," a representative of Thorne Industries revealed. "Those models that are in the field are currently being examined for similar weaknesses. We anticipate that they will be reinforced by the end of the month."

Regardless of the repairs, Thorne Industries will suffer further legal repercussions from the state of Colorado and private land owners. During the spills, several employees were wounded. One of them was in critical condition before receiving care.

Drug Violence Escalates in City 2015 Mar 13 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

March 15, 2015 - Pokoh's Peak, CO - In a major escalation of what police insiders are calling "the beginning of a drug war", two Pokoh's Peak police department detectives, Jackson Theodore Adair, 36, and Brandon Richard Schuyler, 29, were murdered in rural Jefferson County late on the morning of the 14th. Their bodies were discovered by Jefferson County sheriff's deputies on Old Gold Mine Road, after those deputies were tasked with looking for them after the pair were noted to be overdue.

Jackson "Jack" Adair was the lead detective on the recent gangland slaying of Martine de Fontaine of Pokoh's Peak, Jerome Pascal, 28, of Albuquerque, New Mexico, and an unidentified third man just four days ago on the northern edge of the city. Police insiders say the pair of detectives were following a lead on that case, when they failed to check in for the appropriate times. At first, it was believed they had been attacked by a wild dog or wolf pack, which immediately connected both their murders and the Fontaine assassination to the Boxon Mountain Quarry killings last summer, which also involved wolves and dogs. However, none of these police insiders wanted to comment on the record since the investigation was on going.

At an early morning press conference, Police Chief Samuel "Smoky" Johnson stood with Jefferson County Sheriff's Department lead detective Derrick Ward and Agent DeAndre Bailey of the Colorado Bureau of Investigation. Chief Johnson apologized for the "premature closing of the Boxon Mountain Quarry incident" last year. He also stated that while the police vehicle Adair and Schuyler were in had GPS, it did not have a dashboard camera as it was a detective's vehicle. Johnson said "Well, the police union didn't want 'em, but Bill (union representative Detective William Gowder) called this morning, and they're being installed right now. That won't happen again." Chief Johnson that because the connected homicides were over more than on state jurisdiction, Agent Bailey would be overall in charge of the investigation.

Agent Bailey is well known for being the first Muslim to be promoted to senior agent in the CBI. He thanked Chief Johnson, and assured the public he would be unceasingly vigilant in finding the culprits. When a reporter asked whether there was any possibility that this was a wolf attack, Bailey responded. "Unequivocally, no. Wolves don't phone ahead." He then ended the press conference abruptly.

ArcCorp delisted after surprise cr 2015 Mar 15 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

The Wall Street Journal Online - Notable defense contractor ArcCorp, based in Sunnyvale, California, was delisted off the New York Exhange after trading for only forty minutes and losing most of its value. Over the weekend it was announced that the Department of Defense were reassigning all contracts granted to ArcCorp to other firms, including the mega-firms Raytheon and Timken, which do similar work. While the Department of Defense did pay a substantial penalty for the sudden re-assignment, it pales in comparison to the fiscal equity lost when ArcCorp began trading at $65.58 and dropped to $1.05, when the NYSE stepped in to delist the stock. Department of Defense Peter Russell withheld comment about why the contracts were re-assigned, but did specifically note that there was no 'illegal activities that we are aware of' that caused the sudden decision.

A spokesman for the New York Stock Exchange was questions on why automatic failsafe limits were ignored during the morning plunge. T. Gray Holden indicated that the Board of Governors felt it was an appropriate step in light of the circumstances. When pressed for more details, Mr. Holden declined to comment. It is estimated that ArcCorp lost $64 million in shareholder equity, and while the $5 million dollars in contract termination penalties from the government will help somewhat, the loss of operating credit resultant from banks declining to finance ArcCorp's liquidity means it is almost certain that the corporation's assets will be sold off piecemeal in short order.

Explosion 2015 Mar 18 Media (Crow)

______________________________________________________________________________

POKOH'S PEAK, CO.: Early in the morning on March 15, 2015, a Thorne Industries fracking rig exploded.

"We believe the explosion was caused by a homemade explosive," a representative for the Sheriff's Department stated. "The detonation crippled the supports in the rig, causing it to collapse in on itself. Emergency procedures kept crude oil from escaping, but further excavation will be needed to determine subsequent damage."

The explosion is the fourth catastrophe to strike Thorne Industries in the area. Earlier this year, their offices in Pokoh's Peak were destroyed after a colossal explosion. Earlier in March, two other fracking rigs suffered damage from a faulty part. The faulty parts resulted in mild oil spills, and the company has suffered several legal allegations from the incidents.

"A group calling itself the E.L.F. has claimed responsibility for the attack," the representative added. "At this time, we have no reason to believe they were connected to the hardware malfunctions that occurred earlier in March."

FRINGE NEWS: Subreddits exploded today when a company's minutes were posted online. The company in question, Thorne Industries, is one of the United State's leading fracking companies. However, by the looks of it, they're more into corporate espionage than raping our earth for their precious oil.

Each topic on reddit was closed within ten minutes of being posted, but the damage was done. Copies of the minutes passed onto message boards in the deep web, and excerpts have already been turned into memes.

<included are two images of Walter Sobchak, played by John Goodman in the Big Lebowki, pointing his beretta while at the bowling alley. The text says: TARGET TORRES! and: ****ING E.L.F.>

The minutes were also posted across social media, but most didn't last thirty seconds. Way to go, Facebook! It's good to see our tax, I mean payments to Pentex, paying off.

Speaking of! Mentioned in the minutes is the big, fat P-word. Pentex had this to say, when I gave them a call: "We are willing to correspond with legitimate journalists who bring us worthwhile news. These alleged minutes are nothing more than fiction. This is in no way legitimate journalism."

Same old, same old. The dam doesn't break in one day, but the cracks are beginning to spread.

OOC: Several fringe media outlets, including WikiLeaks and sites that traffic in more dangerous stories, have picked up this story and posted it. It's not wide-spread.

Lake County Assault kills 24 2015 Mar 24 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

March 25, 2015 - Leadville, CO - Lake County deputy sheriffs backed up by a Colorado State Police Tactical Team engaged in a thirty minute firefight with a group of unidentified illegal immigrants on the grounds of the Leadville National Fish Hatchery in the early afternoon on Tuesday, March 24th. Police units responded to a call by two employees of the hatchery, who had arrived at the facility to check the status of the small mouth bass population during the winter season, when the hatchery is usually inactive.

Jeffrey Sapp, 47, of Red Cliff, CO escaped the attack by locking himself in an electrical conduit closet after his fellow employee, Ryan O. Risse, 36, of Leadville and he were attacked by unidentified assailants. "We were over by the walleye tank when a dozen derogative terms for Mexican immigrants come pouring down off of Mount Massive. Ryan when over to tell them we were closed and they just started attacking him with his bare hands!" After ascertaining that Risse was slain, Sapp locked himself in an electrical conduit closet and called the sheriff's office in Leadville. Sheriff Matthew Lashley and another deputy arrived, and were immediately attacked by the group. He succeeded in calling in another police car, and having dispatch in Leadville call in the Colorado State Police's Rapid Response Team, which arrived by helicopter. Sherriff Lashely was killed, as well as the deputy accompanying him (Jonathan L Brown, 29), as well as another deputy in the following car. The fourth deputy was trapped in her car and was fending off the assailants with a shotgun when UH-1 Helicopters with the Rapid Response Team arrived and ended the battle with their automatic weapons.

Deputy Amanda Helm, the fourth deputy who survived, said that four assailants had been captured, but "For some reason they just keeled over. They must have been whacked out on something. They were hitting the squad car windshield with their fists!" FBI units have arrived and are investigating.

Friday, March 27th - Nast, Colorado - State police helicopters searching for suspects in regards the attack on the Leadville National Fish Hatchery yesterday found a grisly scene on Frying Pan road between the resort camping village of Nast, and Wildcat Mountain. Twenty people of various backgrounds were found in the area of Hell Gap, a rocky cut in Pitkin County made by Ivanhoe Creek, and was spotted from the air. State Police Officers and a CBI team was air lifted in, while Ambulances made the difficult journey into the interior. The names of those found have been withheld from the press pending the investigation.

One police source that agreed to speak off the record was adamant that "this was even more crazy than the fish hatchery. The victims just died where they fell. Spread out over a half a mile, they looked like they were trying to get to Nast. They died within the last week, but some of them were young, and had the right clothes. There's no reason why they should be dead." Official spokesman Victoria Ramirez of the CBI and Eric Gasic of the FBI, who is also in charge of the National Fish Hatchery (which is technically federal property), had no comment, as it was too early in the investigation for speculation.

George Wellington Ambler, a local expert on the paranormal who lives in Denver, put forward the claim that this was alien activity. He drew parallels to the Dyatlov Pass incident in the Soviet Union in 1959

Local wanted for questioning 2015 Apr 01 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

April 2, 2015 - Pokoh's Peak, Colorado - Police released today information regarding the homicide of Opal Heart, who resided at the Mountain Ski and Spa Resort in Pokoh's Peak. Ms. Heart worked for the Central Intelligence Agency as a regional logistics coordinator, but did have access to sensitive materials, and therefore is considered a National Intelligence Officer. Ms. Heart's body was found incinerated in her vehicle on the outskirts of Ciudad Juarez, Mexico last week. Agent DeAndre Bailey of the CBI, as well as Special Agent Lynne Hittner of the FBI confirmed that foul play was involved, and they are of the opinion that Mexico was just a convenient spot to dispose of the body.

AgenT Bailey released information regarding a person of interest that resides in the area, and he believes still is in the area. River Alguin owned Under the Juniper, a curiosity shop at the corner of Pokoh's Parkway and Eaton Street, and has had arrest warrants issued for five counts of Obstruction of Justice, one count of Obstruction into the investigation of the death of a National Intelligence Offcier, and two counts of Unlawful Flight. Agent Bailey noted that Ms. River herself indicated that she had knowledge of the death of Ms. Heart, and yet refused to cooperate with law enforcement.

Agent Bailey asked anyone that sees or has seen River Alguin to please contact the Major Crime Task Force: Sawatch and Front Range office temporarily established at the police station. He does not consider Ms. Alguin dangerous, although she may be armed.

Dark Web Video 2015 Apr 01 Media (Heron)

______________________________________________________________________________

This video is only available to those people who can access the Dark Web. In this case, this requires you to have Computer 3. For those that have the skill at this level, you get a notification about this video. If you do not have computer 3, someone has to tell you about this.

The camera is set up in the middle of a dilapidated room. Outside the broken windows is the remnants of a ghost town. In the middle of the screen is a wooden seat, large enough for two people to sit, built of white cedar boards sanded and unstained. The lighting is from the front.

In the center of the very large chair, there is a figure dressed in white robes draped over the shoulder and tied with what seems to be a golden belt -- gold plates linked together by something underneath it. His hands and feet are bandaged with pure white bandages, while his face is covered with a cowl made of the white material

Sitting on his lap, is a boy of about eight years old, dressed in Captain America pajamas. The boy is staring is facing right, and is staring at the right arm of the large chair. His dirty blonde hair has the worst case of bed hair you have seen. He seems near unresponsive, and when he does speak in the video, it is monotone

The robed figure speaks in a surprisingly deep voice -- reminiscent of Amrish Puri -- think of Mola Ram from Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. The language he speaks is not very common, but someone has been nice enough to have subtitles in English. When he speaks the name of the boy, he does not say Timmy, but Teeemeeee, with accents on both syllables.

Hooded Figure: Here we are in Colorado, Timmy. It is very cold here, and I am sure you would like to go home.

Timmy: Yes

Hooded Figure: So would I. But you see, I have to collect a debt. Someone here took something from us, and I cannot go back to where I live, until the debt is paid. Do you understand?

Timmy: Yes

Hooded Figure: You see, my friend from California was taken, and he was important. Now, I must take someone like wise important. Your mother always told you to pay what you owe, yes?

Timmy: Yes

Hooded Figure: Unlike your father, who took you from your mother. I made him pay, didn't I?

Timmy: The cat did.

Hooded Figure: You are so smart, Timmy! Yes, Aaquetza did. You see, good people, like your mother, pay their debts. Bad people, like your father, take and do not pay their debts. I do not want to be here in this cold place much longer. If they do not pay, I will have to think on how to make them do so, and I think best in the place where I live. If I take you back to where I live, then I will make you my son. Would you like that, Timmy?

Timmy: I don't know.

Hooded Figure: Another wise answer. I have people in Colorado. In the place where the stones tell the stories of those heroes past, they will be. They will talk to you, if you wish.

Camera pans to the hooded figure. The man lowers his face to reveal a face that looks like this: dsc01351.jpg

Hooded Figure: Pay the debt, and Timmy will stay, and I will go away.

Missing Boy found at Airport 2015 Apr 04 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

Colorado Springs, CO - April 5th, 2015 - Timothy Bairns, the eight year old boy who had been missing for over two weeks after his mother was brutally slashed by an unknown assailant inside her Midland home, was found late yesterday afternoon wandering in Denver International Airport unharmed. An airline employee of Frontier Airlines contacted a member of the Metro Transit police, who found the child looking out the window near the Frontier boarding desk. Authorities believe that Timothy somehow was on an Avianca connecting flight from Miami, which had landed just fifteen minutes before his discovery.

(Picture of Timothy Bairns hugging a woman in a hospital bed. The woman has a large bandage across her throat, and darkened eyes. There are several other people behind the bed. Caption: Timothy reunited with his mother Deborah at Memorial Hospital North.)

After being examined at the Anschutz Campus of the Children's Hospital of Colorado, the boy was ferried immediately to his mother, who is recovering from a brutal attack on March 21st, 2015. At the Memorial Hospital North press room, a news conference by Deandre Bailey, lead CBI investigator of the multi-jurisdictional Front Range and Sawatch Range Task Force (FRSWTF) indicated that both the assault and the disappearance of Timothy's elder two siblings, Hayley, 14 and Gordon, 12, and his father, Gordon Martin Bairns, were related to at least one incident in the violent spate of attacks and disappearances between the Front Range and the Sawatch Range, that began in March. Agent Bailey, when asked why he thinks there's a link with the Bairns family disappearance, replied. "Timmy told us that his father was not the one who assaulted his mother, and gave us a description of the suspect, which we will release to you at the end of the news conference. We also know they are related because we have identified his sister Hayley, as one of those who died in the Hell Gap Incident." When a local reporter brought up George Wellington Ambler's implication that the Hell Gap incident was caused by aliens, Agent Bailey replied, "That is not a consideration. If we started taking stories of monsters and aliens seriously, we would erode public faith in the police."

(artist sketch of a Hispanic man, with a black leather jacket, angular features, a small mustache, and slicked back hair: Caption "Genaro")

The sketch is pictured above. Further details include that the man who called himself "Genaro" was known to drive a white van with blue lettering, and this was found at the site of the Leadville National Fish Hatchery, where twenty people died attacking the police. It has been confirmed from other witnesses, and Bairns' description, that he always carries one is tentatively identified as a Ingram Mac-10 submachine gun. "Genaro" is to be considered armed and dangerous.

The Director of the Denver branch of the FBI:

"Ladies and gentlemen, I want to ask the public's help on locating this woman -- (shows picture of Kendra) -- Dr. Kendra Cartwright, CEO of Gateway Securities and professor of mathematics at Colorado State University. The FBI has come to believe that she has been kidnapped by foreign agents. If you see her, please contact the FBI via phone, text, or Facebook. Anonymity is guaranteed."

Afterwards, a news report indicates that her home was burned, her place of business shot up, and her car was attacked and smashed on a Denver freeway. Dr. Cartwright is known to the state department for her business dealings with foreign governments; many institutions want to use her cutting-edge security software. While the FBI will neither confirm nor deny this, an anonymous source says that they believe terrorists may have kidnapped Dr. Cartwright to get ahold of the secrets of her security software.

______________________________________________________________________________

Pokoh's Peak, CO - Sunday, April 26th - A traffic accident late last Tuesday night on Tucker Street in down town Pokoh's Peak has been revealed to be an actual homicide by reporters. George Tewkesbury, 39, of Pokoh's Peak, was driving a van east bound on Tucker Street he saw two motorcyclists run into each other in the middle of the street. One of the motorbikes ran into his van and disabled it. When he emerged from his vehicle, he was injured, but he saw one of the cyclist holding a sword over the other accident victim. The huge man, described over seven feet tall, told him to go away. Mr. Tewkesbury then ran away, leaving his van behind, where he was eventually treated at Pokoh's Peak General Hospital and questioned by police.

Grisly Find Enlarges Divide Myster 2015 May 01 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

Leadville, CO - May 2, 2015 - Alerted by campers who found a polyurethane boot with a foot in it floating in the Arkansas River, police have found yet another grisly site in the Lake County area in the area near the Continental Divide. Investigating the source of the boot, searchers found at least two dozen bodies in the Busk-Ivanhoe Tunnel in the Sawatch Range near the site of the earlier Leadville Fish Hatchery attack. Buried under the ice, the bodies seem to have been deposited there over the winter, although the roads to the Busk Ivanhoe Tunnel on this side of the mountain are closed until the end of May.

While police sources say it is too early for any definitive answers, they do confirm that is more than likely connected to the Leadville National Fish Hatchery attack and the discovery of a score of corpses at Hell Gap on March 26th. The Busk-Ivanhoe water tunnel, which pipes water under a northern spur of Mount Massive from the Colorado River basin to the Arkansas River basin across the Continental Divide, connects both areas.

The Front Range Swatch Range Multijurisdictional Task Force, led by Colorado Bureau of Investigation Agent DeAndre Bailey, is temporarily relocating to Leadville from Pokoh's Peak to conduct autopsies and forensic evaluation on the site. So far, the FRSRMTF has spent over a million dollars investigating the rash of violence occurring since the beginning of the year, and it's members include the Jefferson County Sherriff's Department, the Lake County Sherriff's Department, the Pitkin County Sherriff's Department, the Pokoh's Peak Police Department, the Colorado State Police, the CBI and the FBI.

Tonight, on SyFy! Part 1 2015 May 05 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

Syfy presents ""Spiderlanche vs. Wolfenquake"

Opening Card "Colorado, around 1550 AD"

The camera pans to a mountain, which is obviously Pokoh's Peak, with all the buildings photohopped out. A very stern looking Amerind man of an unspecified tribe (his costume is a mixture of Dakota and Delaware tribal clothes) walks up through Enterman spruce in the late fall. He comes upon a young Amerind woman and a handsome Spanish conquistador (you can tell by his helmet) en flagrante delicto in a meadow - the meadow is not in Colorado, but looks more like California. The Amerind man calls out to the sky for vengeance, draws a knife, and approaches the couple.

Next Scene:

A minivan drives up Pokoh's Parkway from Denver, with six people in it. There are four males and two females (white hunk male named Jack, black hunk male named Ty, white male geek named Carl, white male geek named Ricky, Asian sex pot female named Kayla, shy white female named Cammie Nix). They are going to Shadow Peak to play Realm of Enchantment, a Live Action Roleplaying game where they are all wizards. It is established that Cammie is nervous and non-committed, her friend Kayla is trying to get to Ty, Jack is a close friend of Ty, Ty is former boyhood friends of Ricky, Carl is the Plotmaster and over enthusiastic gamer. There's a park on Shadow Peak that has enough space for the game. Carl intones seriously about the world - which is a direct Tolkien ripoff.

When they pull in to the park (Drifters Gully State Park parking lot), there is an Amerind shown observing them from a ridgeline above. He dressed in modern clothes accept for his fringe hat (anyone who knows anything about racial traits can determine that he is actually Phillipino). He says nothing.

Carl brings out an old book and says he wants to lead them to a cave where they can start the adventure. Cammie looks unenthusiastic. Ty reminds Jack to help him carry the 'magic potions' which turns to be a cooler filled with Coors Light. The trek up to the cave and begin to set up.

Scene changes to an unnamed Air Force base (which can be recognized as Fullerton Airport in California, with some composited shots of Edwards Air Force Base). Captain Deke Parker is being ordered to take a break after his rescue mission in the desert where he defeated Islamic terrorists and got out the Secretary of Commerce's daughter. The colonel says "Go to the mountains, far away from the desert. That's an order." After grunting, Parker packs his bags, including his sub machine gun and grenades.

______________________________________________________________________________

Carl uses the old book he found to call out to the shadows and begin the game. Kayla makes googly eyes at Ty, Jack makes googly eyes at Cammie, and Ricky looks like he is thinking he should have taken that bit part on "Dark Matter". When Carl completes the incantation, which resembles some sort of Eastern mystic chant, there's a rumble and the screen shakes. It stops, and Carl continues, saying that the five chosen wizards should go forth and find the sacred key to lock the Evil in the mountain forever. The five go out, and begin to walk in the woods. Carl takes a large fake gold key out of a canvas bag that we've never seen before, and walks out after them to hide it. As he does so, he is bitten on the head by something which isn't shown in the picture and dragged into the air.

Deke Parker arrives at the same parking lot the kids SUV is in, and starts to get climbing gear ready. He looks around, juts out his jaw, and starts to climb.

The camera cuts to Ty and Kayla making out. Kayla takes off her top (back seen only - this is SyFy!) and is suddenly yanked out of the picture. Ty screams in horror, and runs directly away from the camera, when suddenly he is speared by a huge hairy leg.

Jack and Cammie are walking around discussing their college degrees - he's going to be a lawyer specializing in defending innocent people, she's going to be a microbiologists. Jack has a beer, but he never opens it. Jack and Cammie hear Ty's scream and run across the meadow towards the sound. It should be noted, there are no slopes in the picture.

In the darkness of the trees, Jack and Cammie find Carl, Kayla, and Ty webbed into the trees. Jack takes out one of the fake props and tries to cut Kayla out, but it is a fake knife, and he throws it away in disgust. Ty who is the only one is conscious, tells him to run, because it's too late for them. Keen observers will note Ty's torso is intact. Jack refuses, and Cammie reveals she has a real knife given to her by her Green Beret father. She gives Jack the knife, and he begins to cut at Kayla again, when the effects Spider shows up. Spiderlanche makes the ground rumble, and is based on the Mexican tarantula.

Spiderlanche approaches and Jack stands his ground, whipping the knife around in what looks to be some imitation of Tommy Lee Jones in Under Siege. Spiderlanche eats him. Plot twist!

SECOND COMMERCIAL BREAK

There is a long sequence where Cammie is running down the mountain, with some nice camera work. She runs into Ricky, who can't find anyone. They both see Spiderlanche being menacing on the mountain top. Ricky says he found a cabin in his search for the key, and they go there. While going there, they come across Captain Deke Parker who has seen the Spiderlanche and ascertained the situation, and was preparing to try to kill it. First, he attempts to get Ricky and Cammie to safety at the cabin. They make their way to the cabin, where they find the Amerind from the parking lot. His name is Old Coyote.

______________________________________________________________________________

There, they find Old Coyote, the Amerind/Pilipino man. He explains that Spiderlanche is the vengeful spirit of the Indian from the beginning of the movie. A Sioux spider spirit had given him power, and only the Lakota wolf spirit had imprisoned him in Shadow Peak. Wolfenquake needs to be summoned, but luckily, Old Coyote can do it. They watch him as he does some dancing around the fire inside (on a sound stage), and he completes it. Ricky says it's amazing, he never believed magic was really real. Spiderlanche rips off the cabin's roof and eats him.

Parker, Old Coyote, and Cammie run down the mountain to the parking lot. Although Spiderlanche is about twenty feet wide and can stride over the trees, they easily beat him. They roll into town (there must have been a recent snowfall), while Spiderlanche comes after them. There is a spectacular scene, where local residents come out of their homes on the slopes of the Peak, and are crushed as Spiderlanche bowls through their houses. (One of the extras is played by the PC Liam).

FOURTH COMMERCIAL BREAK

Meanwhile, on the opposite side of the valley, the colonel from the first scene with Parker is arriving to deal with the monster with six guys and two jeeps. Looking over the city under the moonlight (quite a nicely put together shot); they see the CGI Spiderlanche start to blow things up by its physical presence. Coming from the mountain the soldiers are on, Wolfenquake, a timberwolf that stands twenty feet tall comes down the mountain. One man tries to get in its way with an M4 assault rifle, and is tossed aside from his trouble. There is a brief, frenetic scene as the colonel and his men are defeated (but not eaten), by Wolfenquake.

Meanwhile, Deke Parker, Cammie Nix, and Old Coyote arrive in down town (Commanche Circle), and go into Parker's motel. Old Coyote excuses himself to find other medicine men, and Deke and Cammie alone. Cammie explains her guilt at all her friends being eaten. Parker explains that he feels some guilt at not being able to save the park ranger. (What park ranger? This is not explained). They comfort each other and have an elongated sex scene with great lighting and perfect timing.

Wolfenquake and Spiderlanche rush at each other, with many CGI shots and lots of destruction. At one point, a very fat man comes out of a building. A jump cut shows it is Vasiliou Antiquities. The fat man yells at Spiderlanche to get out of his town, and Spiderlanche stops to eat him, messily, destroying the Antique store in the process.

Parker and Cammie are relaxing post-coitus when they hear the destruction. They get up out of bed before a car comes crashing through the set. Moments later, dressed like they were before, they run out into a composited picture showing half the buildings on fire. They see Wolfenquake behind them, and run down the street. For a moment you can see the sign for the Trade Winds Cafe, but then the scene cuts and they are running on a different street altogether.

Wolfenquake appears to be chasing after them, and gaining. But - Old Coyote steps out from an alley, and says something in what appears to be Salish, rather than Lakota. Wolfenquake stops, and Old Coyote says white men have accidently woke the Spiderlanche. Spiderlanche, hanging on the U S Bank on Eaton St, agrees. Wolfenquake goes toward the spider.

SIXTH COMMERCIAL BREAK

This whole segment is Spiderlanche and Wolfenquake fighting. Spiderlanche only uses its web spinnerets once, while Wolfenquake stomps on Water St, breaking the webs. Strangely enough, with all the cars and huge creatures being thrown around, none of the buildings are destroyed. At the end, as F-14s roar overhead, Wolfenquake is victorious, and tears Spiderlanche limb from limb, one leg at a time.

SEVENTH COMMERICAL BREAK

As Wolfenquake climbs Shadow Peak, Old Coyote explains that he is merely leaving until the Lakota need him again. He stands there admiring Wolfenquake's back, while Captain Deke Parker and Cammie Nix embrace. Roll credits.

Police Ambushed on Boxon Mountain 2015 May 17 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

Sunday, May 17, 2015 - Agent DeAndre Bailey, the leading figure in the recent investigation of the spate of violence, was ambushed at the Boxon Mountain Quarry last night, in a fiery attack that was visible for miles. Bailey, the head of the Front Range Swatch Range Multijurisdictional Task Force, was severely injured and now is resting in Pokoh's Peak General Hospital with a fractured skull. Two other police agents, Victoria Esmerelda Ramirez, 48, of the Colorado Bureau of Investigation, and Steven Lyle Guest, 36, of the Swiss Guards, the police force of Vatican City, who had been associating with the FRSRMTF as part of an exchange program, were killed in the ambush.

A news conference held by the Jefferson County Commissioners, and Thomas Orsted, the remaining member of the Task Force, fielded questions for an hour this morning. The attack was likened to the ambush of two city detectives, Jackson Adair and Brendan Schuyler, on Old Gold Mine Road on March 14 of this year. In fact, Orsted proclaimed that he was in the process of tracking down the email that led the three to go to Boxon Mountain on Saturday night.

The question and answer session became heated when several reporters asked why no one outside the unit was informed that Steven Guest was present. Agent Orsted stated angrily, "Steve wasn't here to be interviewed in your (expletive deleted) Lifestyle section." County Commissioners than fielded accusations that the Task Force was using unauthorized armaments that caused the massive explosion that was visible both in Pokoh's Peak and Denver. The official comment was that an investigation was pending, while Orsted stated "Really? Two detectives dead, four sheriff deputies dead in Lake County, now three more dead, how many civilians murdered, and you (expletive deleted) want to know if we filled out the (expletive deleted) paperwork?" At this point, Orsted was ushered from the interview.

Summer Construction Project Initia 2015 May 19 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

May 20, 2015 - Pokoh's Peak, CO - Linda Burton-Grimes, councilwoman of the 21st ward, held an outside news conference today at Monument Park, where she announced that she had been approached by a construction company who had volunteered to do construction work around her ward, the neighborhood around the intersection of Lakeside Way and Commanche Circle.

At the news conference, Burton-Grimes, known for her vociferous speeches and her plebian roots, held forth when questioned how she convinced Luciano Construction, which has just expanded a new operation in Pokoh's Peak to repave the streets for free. "Listen, somehow someone got the knowledge that politicians accepting free offers was somehow corruption. It's not. It's not. This is just playing it smart. If the state house in Denver would play it smart, I wouldn't have to make deals with corporations looking for advertising to have decent roads! If Gordo the Bozo (i.e. Gordon Schiller, the Republican state representative for the 25th District, which encompasses a majority of Jefferson County) was smart, he would be able to bring more businesses to Pokoh's Peak! And the county! Who gets things done?" It devolved into a rally at that point.

Attack on PPPD HQ covered up 2015 May 31 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

June 1, 2015 - Pokoh's Peak, CO - Federal, State and Local police forces are involved in a conflict that is akin to a "low intensity war" that has not been revealed to the public, reporters for the Daily News have discovered. The Front Range Sawatch Range Multijurisdictional Task Forces office housed in the Police Department building in downtown Pokoh's Peak was raided by unidentified assailants on the night of the May 27th, and no public report was issued. This attack caused the injuries to two law enforcement officers, Gary Hendricks, a twenty two year veteran of the Pokoh's Peak PD, and Thomas Orsted, the CBI agent who briefed the press after the injured DeAndre Bailey, CBI agent in charge of the FRSRTF. Police insiders report that one to two men climbed up the State Street fire escape and attacked the Task Force's office with gas bombs, and made off with incriminating evidence before they could be stopped.

Agent Bailey was interviewed at Police Headquarters by reporters today, where he refused comment, on how brazen an attack a police building could have been failed to be reported to the public. He also refused to comment on this picture, taken at a police operation on Boxon Mountain in March.

(A photograph of a person taken in front of a house, on the side of a mountain, with patches of snow still visible in places under the eaves. He is about six foot two, wearing unlabeled, black Swat team armor, and a black balaclava. He has an assault rifle (not an M16 or M4), grenades pinned to his web gear, and two odd pipe like guns hanging from his hips). He is looking away from the camera and inside the window of a house it is daylight).

Police insiders say that a powerful drug cartel has chosen central Colorado to resist the law enforcement officials, starting with the assassination of a financier, Martine de Fontaine, in February. So far, this undeclared war has claimed the lives of at least eight police officers, over eighty civilians, and, as the police insider reports "That's the only ones we know about.". Chief of Police Samuel "Smoky" Johnson commented that he was vaguely aware of the situation, but claims that the state agency in charge has "kept me in the dark." He vowed to get to the bottom of the situation.

Strange Past of Dead Cop 2015 Jun 12 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

Magazine Section - Saturday, June 13, 2015 - The Vatican - The mysterious background of an exchange police officer who died in a drug cartel ambush on Boxon Mountain on has been brought to light after an extensive investigative project by Pokoh's Peak Daily Times reporters. The history brings to light how the Front Range Sawatch Range Multijurisdictional Task Force may be covering up from public consumption the extent of the activity and danger of drug cartel activity in Jefferson County.

Investigative reporter Juliana Engler has found an incomplete biography of one Steven Lyle Guest, the exchange officer from the Vatican that died in an ambush of police forces at the Boxon Quarry on May 16th. Guest was born in 1976 in Billngshurst, Sussex, England, to Martin, who worked for the Sussex County Public Works, and Emily, who was the secretary at Saint Gabriel's Catholic Church. Martin and Emily, when called, said that Steven was a very adventurous child, but never gave them nor his four brothers and sisters any sort of problem. It was not surprising that Steven joined the Army at the age of 18 in 1994. After four years as a member of the Household Guards Calvary (which now drives tanks), Guest joined the Parachute Regiment, and then in 2001 was accepted into the Special Air Service. He was deployed for Operation Archer, the British contribution to the war against the Taliban in Afghanistan, and in the process of that Operation, won the Conspicuous Gallantry Cross, the current second highest rankling medal in the British Armed Forces. The reasons for this award are sealed as not available due to British national security.

Strangely enough, Staff Sergeant Guest resigned from the Army in spring of 2006. Mr. and Mrs. Guest, however, says that he told them that he was still in the Army, but the British government denies that. The Vatican government refuses to comment on anything with Mr. Guest except that he was a member of their police force, and that he was authorized to be in an exchange program in the United States. However, a Freedom of Information Act request shows there is not such a program in the Colorado Department of Public Safety, which is the organization which contains the Bureau of Investigation. Agent DeAndre Bailey refused comment - however this reporter received a call from someone who indicated that this was a Drug Enforcement Agency program. A call to the public numbers of the DEA office in Denver refuses comment on any active program.

What was Steven Guest doing in the United States? Who sponsored his arrival? If it was the DEA, why will they not confirm it? With the amount of brazen violence going on in the area, and the fact that there are rumors of Mexican cartel members meeting in Denver, it is becoming apparent to this editorial board that there is more going on than the government is releasing. Stayed tuned for a multi-part investigative report on this issue in the upcoming weeks.

Disturbing News 2015 Jun 20 Media (Crow)

______________________________________________________________________________

POKOH'S PEAK, CO: Many of Pokoh's Peak's northern residents have begun to complain about wolf howls and attacks against livestock. Strangely, wolves have not been denizens in the state for more than 60 years.

John Carlow, a local organic farmer and forester, has been raising sheep, cattle, sheep, and chickens for twenty years. On June 19, a Friday, his livestock was butchered in the late evening.

"I come out to see my pasture, bout as red as a sunset. Carcasses torn up, meat ripped right off the bone. Never seen none like it," said Carlow. He, and several experts, identified the bite and scratch marks as belonging to canis lupus, also known as gray wolves.

Dozens over other complaints have been made against the noises the wolves have made. Carlow suspects the presence of several nomadic packs, or perhaps one large pack, but notes that their behaviors are exceedingly irregular.

"Wolves don't like humans. They stay clear, usually ain't so loud, neither. Whatever these wolves is, they're differnt," Carlow explains.

Professor Jay Rorikson says differently. "Wolves in large numbers often behave irregularly. In addition, the presence of a canis lupus magnus, or, simply, a rather large wolf, can spur a pack into frenzies. While uncommon, the 'magnus would certainly explain the noise and recent attacks. Stay indoors after dark, and keep livestock in pins. If necessary, use spotlights on fields. Eventually, the packs will roam elsewhere."

Gov answers questions about TF 2015 Jul 02 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

Friday, July 3, 2015 - Colorado Springs, Colorado - Executive Director of the Colorado Department of Public Saftey Stan Hilkey answered questions regarding the unprecedented scope of the Front Range Swatch Range Multijurisdictional Task Force at a press conference to announce a new community policing initiative in Pueblo. The FRSWTF is a task force put together and led by CBI agent DeAndre Bailey, which was created by the governor at Agent Bailey's urging to combat a spate of homicides earlier this year. Reporters at the new conference directed questions regarding the accusations that hundreds of police man hours have been assigned to the Task Force whose mission is open ended, and that officers within the task force have been operating outside the standard operating procedures of the law.

Director Hilkey, the former sheriff of Mesa County appointed to his position by the governor, responded emphatically to the question. "We haven't had an incident since May 27, which means the task force is doing its job cutting down on the violence in Jefferson, Park, Lake and Pitkin counties. As for the assertion that it is open ended, that's so wrong. I am sure if the violence is abated by the end of the summer, they'll be no need to continue its existence."

A picture is really worth 1,000 words - or more.

     Newly arrived artist, Cosmo Marks shared a photo of a Native American woman standing on the roadside outside Pokoh's Peak, Colorado. Neither the woman, or her tribal affiliation is identified, but the photograph was taken in June of 2015.

     She is a middle-aged woman, smiling brightly, she poses with her arms out wide, indicating both mountainous wilderness and a thriving city. She wears a traditional dress decorated with elk teeth, leather belt, and bead necklaces. Her feet are bare.

     When I heard the name Pokoh's Peak, I honestly thought of a rustic community set in some vibrant valley between majestic mountainsides. A place where civilization was emerging from the earth at a snail's pace. I was mistaken.

     While the surrounding rural beauty of untamed wilds is unmistakable, Pokoh's Peak is everything but backwoods. What I found wasn't some uncut stone waiting to be shaped by the ebb and flow of water, but rather a many faceted diamond that glistens under the Colorado sky.

     This is a melting pot of cultural and social casts, that seems to already be developing its own personality. I have found few places on this earth where I can attend an authentic sweat lodge, surrounding by people deeply immersed in their heritage, and in the same day enjoy a Starbuck's coffee at a local internet cafe.

     My opinion. Denver's tourism bureau should begin to worry.

Dotsero Maar, a Colorado volcano in the Rocky Moutains, south west of Pokoh's Peak, is once again showing signs of activity. (This location is slightly moved from the real world counterpart).

Dotsero Maar is the youngest volcano in the United States, volcanos under 10,000 years old are more likely to become active again. A new lava vent has recently opened in the crater of the 4,200 year old Holocene era volcano, this is a Maar type volcano, a crater instead of a mountain. At over 700 meters wide, and 400 meters deep, the crater is vast and impressive and officially closed to all tourists due to the danger of the new lava vent opening.

     The Colorado sunset is a crucial choice for capturing extra detail and giving just enough extra light to bring out some of the deep shadowy detail of Dotsero Maar. Just a looming giant in the distance to most.

     The photographer, seems to have found what appears to be the sweet spot for getting all the stars in the sky, and lights from the distant Ute Reservation and Pokoh's Peak. A little over thirty miles away.

     The photo captured something magical about our world. Although it is beautiful to see the volcano at sunset, it is the newly opened lava vent on Dotsero Maar that captures the imagination.

     Doctor Collin McAfferty, an American volcanologist says the Dotsero Maar volcano is currently classified as an inactive volcano, and it is unlikely to erupt. It has been inactive for approximately four thousand years.

     Doctor McAfferty, who received his PhD in Geology from MIT also says the volcano currently poses very little danger to the city and the Ute reservation. The biggest danger is posed to anyone trying to hike out and explore the volcano. Some of the ground has become unstable and one lava vent has allowed lava to come dangerously close to the surface.

     Doctor McAfferty does offer a poignant reminder that if Dotsero Maar erupted, it would be Catastrophic. It has the potential to cause millions in property damage, untold loss of life, devastating damage to the forests and ecosystem. In a quote from the Doctor, "It's almost unthinkable."

     The Federal Government, in cooperation with the State Parks system, has added additional seismic monitoring equipment to the area around the Volcano and Doctor McAfferty and his survey team are taking extra steps to examine the state of other lava vents in the area.

By Line. Cosmo Marks.

High Rise Nightmare in SF 2015 Jul 20 Media (Gyrfalcon)

July 20, 2015 - San Francisco, CA - a city land mark was partially destroyed when over the weekend when 345 California Center, the third tallest building in metropolitan San Francisco and the location of the Loews Regency hotel, had twelve floors of the west tower burn for over fifteen hours, which brought fire units from as far away as Sacramento. The fire began in the 35th floor which is not regularly occupied, but has conference facilities rented as a case by case basis. A private party had reserved the floor, but no further information regarding this private party has been made available to the press. However, the 38th through the top floor is the hotel, and customers were evacuated by helicopter and emergency walkways to the east tower.

(A nighttime picture of the skyscraper - the 35th to the 47th stories of the building's west tower are billowing flames, while a state police helicopter is landing on the roof. Picture of the building during the day. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:345_California_Street.JPG).

Fire and police insiders say an investigation into arson started immediately. The hotel services company which leases the floors to businesses and runs the hotel used the structure's sparkling safety record and modern fire suppression techniques in its sales brochures. At least ten people are missing from the hotel, but there is no count on who was renting the conference room.

Local Woman Struck By Lightning 2015 Jul 29 Media (Crow)

______________________________________________________________________________

POKOH'S PEAK, CO: On Thursday, July 30, 2015, a local woman was struck by lightning while standing outside her place of business.

Dixon Lee Lines, owner and manager of Club Eclipse, was struck by lightning in the afternoon. "It was a spontaneous discharge event," said Dr. Ludwig Meyer, a meteorologist in Denver. "They do not occur very often. Ms. Lines is very lucky to be alive." That day, there were no clouds capable of producing lightning. Yet, Lines was still struck.

Nearly 24,000 people are struck by lightning each year. In the United States, nearly 50 people die from strikes each year.

Lines, who was pregnant, was rushed to the hospital following the strike. Earlier in 2015, the same site suffered from a massive explosion that detonated inside the then-named Thorne Industries, one of the fastest growing fracking countries in the world. Club Eclipse stands on top of what remains of that fatal day, where several people lost their lives.

"This block is cursed," one bystander, Vicky Barnes, said. "The devil's in that plot." Several seemed to agree. Lines was unavailable for comment.

______________________________________________________________________________

A blurb on the evening News, after something about a Summer Job Fair, is seen!

"And in sadder news, a local Logger was found dead at the Pokoh's Cantina and Brewery. His identity is still unknown, and police suspect foul play at this time. The police have been unable to determine the victims identity and if you have any information you are encouraged to call the TIP line." A phone number is displayed under a sketch of the victims face, a rugged looking man in his mid to late thirties.

A shot of the Cantina is shown on screen, with a reporter interviewing a customer. "Well I'm just shocked, though not as shocked as I should be, seems every week something weird happens down here. Just the other day some drunk guy peed on the bar, and now a guy dies after storming in and crushing a table? I mean jeez...But hey, its not the owners fault, they have good grub, good drinks, and they even gave out a free cupon after this unpleasantness. I mean hell, if I was weirdo, I'd come here for chow and booze!" he chuckles, and then the story changes to something about the Queen's Corgies in England.

Missing Minnesota Men found dead 2015 Aug 24 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

August 25, 2015 - Louviers, Colorado - Acting on a tip phoned in to the Front Range Sawatch Range Multijurisdictional Task Force, Douglas County sheriff deputies have found the bodies of four young male adults who have been missing for over a month in a private well on a derelict farm in the northwestern part of the county.

Tentatively identified by their Bureau of Indian Affairs ID cards, George William Erie, 20, David Henry Crow Dog, 19, Charles John O'Hara, 18 of Red Lake, Minnesota and William Thomas Grass, 19, of Redby, Minnesota, were found dead and submerged in a well after the precise location was phoned in as an anonymous tip. Douglas County spokesman Martin Gottleib confirmed with reporters that the men were the Red Lake band of the Lakota, from the reservation up there., and while there had been some concern in the area that they had been missing, the amount of police calls and the FRSRTF prevented any meaningful search of the area. Gottleib also confirmed that they are "one hundred percent certain' that the men were murdered, but could offer no more information as the investigation is still continuing.

Tragedy in Mexico 2015 Sep 17 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

(AP) September 18th, 2016 - Torreon, Coahuila, Mexico - The largest city in North Central Mexico is reeling from an unimaginable tragedy that erupted in the early morning hours of Thursday, September 17th. The Torreon State Orphanage, a government facility near the airport, was burned down in what authorities all but declare was a deliberate act. Reports are confirmed that first responders found the doors and shutters pad locked from the outside, and most of the two story building was already fully engulfed in flames.

(Picture: A white stone building with red-orange flame pouring out of the windows, with the front door hacked open. Inside the door, flames can see billowing inside. One can see a Mexican EMT yelling off picture, while two firemen put a hose on the flames. On the wall written in red, are the words "no te metas donde no te llaman!")

(caption: The Torreon State Orphanage burns down after midnight, early Thursday morning)

Mexican officials say that seventy three people died in the blaze, seven staff members and sixty six children. They report that there was no previous threats against the orphanage, and that most of the children and all of the workers came from the local environs. It is assumed because of the speed and intensity of the fire that a massive amount of accelerant was used. Traffic at the Francisco Sarabia International Airport was delayed for six hours due to the huge clouds of smoke.

One Dead in Lubbock Gang War 2015 Sep 30 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

(AP) Wednesday, September 30, 2015 - Lubbock, TX - One person is dead and an undisclosed number are injured in a gun battle in the central railyards in this central Texas town, after a battle occurred early Tuesday morning. Local police and Texas Rangers are still on the scene trying to piece together the incident that rocked the mid-sized industrial town early Tuesday morning.

One unidentified male was found dead due to an explosive device in a multi-stop truck, and there was evidence of a several rounds of ammunition fired in the rail yards. Forensic experts informed reporters that while the situation is not clear as yet to what occurred, but military grade ordinance was used. The police have located one witness, but internal sources say she was a local teenager who was kidnapped and caught in the middle, but she is not a suspect. The Associated Press has made the editorial decision to withhold her identity due to her age and the possibility of retribution.

Another source within the city hall indicates that the authorities believe this is a conflict between the Mexican zetas, a violent criminal gang vying for control of the drug trafficking out of northern Mexico, and the remnants of the Smaldone mafia family from Denver.

Three dead in gang shootout 2015 Oct 01 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

Denver - October 2, 2016 - Police responded to several emergency services call last night after an apartment building in the Five Points section of north central Denver was the scene of a loud shootout. Police confirm there were three fatalities, and one injury. Carson Ignatius Lubersmith, 23 was taken to Presbyterian St Luke's hospital where he remains in critical condition in the ICU Trauma unit. Meanwhile, Tomas Manuel Diaz, Joseph Xavier Gort and a third person whose identity has yet to be released were killed by an unidentified attacker at about 9pm on Thursday night.

Detective Arthur Dellings of the Major Crimes Unit believes the attack was made by a highly trained vigilante, who entered the fourth floor of the Skyplace Apartment Complex on the northwest corner of Arapahoe and 28th Streets. Detective Dellings believe the man, who apparently shut the power off to the entire fourth floor before entry, was retrieving three girls who had been missing from the suburb of Ken Caryl the last two weeks. Jennifer Gaithers, 17, Lucinda Eckenrode, 16, and Martha Jade Paulsen, 16 went missing on September 15th, and witnesses confirmed that the girls were in the apartment complex. Detective Dellings informed reporters that identification and clothes from the high school girls were found in the apartment, but there is no indication of where the attacker has taken them. He remarked to reporters, "While we have reason to believe that the girls were being held against their will, the person or persons who have freed them did not have the authority to murder these men, no matter how questionable their character. We implore the assailant to turn the girls over to a medical professional as soon as possible." Police insiders indicate it is highly likely one of the missing girls were severely injured during the break out.

Jefferson County Workers Strike 2015 Oct 06 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

October 7, 2015 - As of 12:00am midnight, Jefferson County government workers that called a wildcat strike against the county administration because of the non-union nature of their non-essential employees. Organized by the AFSCME (the American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees), the quickly developing strike occurred when workers held a ballot over the weekend to unionize. Their demands is that either all municipal employees should now be covered by the AFSCME and current vendors for county services all have union employees (in essence, create a closed shop). Count government initially refused to consider terminating the latter agreement, siting the cost of settling breach of contract claims. Now, as county offices close and picket lines form, they are unsure of what to do. Government Spokesman Lesley Ann Canton expressed dismay, "No one's been unhappy before - the commissioners are stunned at this instant jump to such a drastic action." AFSCME spokesman Roger Tucker countered, "Every citizen has the right to a living wage, and a fair and equitable grievance system so their rights can be respected. For too long Jefferson County has ignored worker's rights, and endangered the quality of work done in the region." Jefferson County's long time record of being a conservative bastion notwithstanding, pundits point to the recent liberalization trend occurring in Colorado as a leading indicator that this would happen.

The strike does not affect state offices, City of Pokoh's Peak offices, or federal offices. While the Police union, Firefighter's Union and other services like them say they will respect the picket lines, the will be accordance with regulations and provide immediate emergency services.

The following piece appears in Pokoh Peak's newspaper, and on their website. In the paper, it's a sidebar on page seven. On the website, it's under the Opinion section.

POKOH'S PEAK, CO: A scandalous Twitter post received a great deal of traffic yesterday. With over five thousand retweets and even more likes in less than an hour, it was the hub of local news.

"Word is Detective Jameson Hack works for that fugitive, Justice Kowalski. Hack is keeping her one step ahead of Special Agent DeAndre Bailey and the Multijurisdictional Task Force hunting her," read the post. A juicy piece of gossip, the tweet has invigorated the Pokoh's Peak rumor mill.

"Where does it end? I moved here to get away from big city politics," wrote George Harper.

Pokoh's Peak has never had a strong presence on social media, but the time may be ripe to for the community to begin to connect.

Jefferson County govt caves 2015 Oct 13 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

Wednesday, October 14th. 2015 - Pokoh's Peak, Co - Jefferson County's Board of Commissioners gave into striking workers' demands yesterday and notified the AFSCME local that they would give into the demands of the union, and reopen all contracts for county services immediately to companies that employ union workers. Contracts will be open for bidding immediately, to take effect at the first of the year.

Jennifer Blake, spokesperson for the board, explained that the operating budget for Jefferson Count precludes the ability to hire Union workers directly, as any savings the Union contracts would offer would automatically have to go pay the salary for a new level of management, "which simply was not budgeted." Ms. Blake also noted that the breach of contract fees for existing contracts of non-union vendors would necessitate an automatic freeze on capital improvements for the rest of the year, the cancellation of wild fire evacuation and deterrence exercises for next year, and the cancellation of certain evening programs in the county's library system. These cuts would not affect the City of Pokoh's Peak library system, which runs from a different budget.

Local nuns kidnapped 2015 Oct 27 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

Tuesday, October 27, 2015 - Pokoh's Peak, CO - For the second time in a month, tragedy and controversy has struck the Catholic Church in Jefferson County. First, St. John's Church was closed by federal authorities on suspicion of being a part of a Guyanese Gold smuggling ring, and now, a dozen nuns have been kidnapped by parties unknown after it had been brought to the archdiocese's attention that the Convent of the Sacred Heart, located just north of the city in Jefferson County, had been fortified with wire fences and razor wire.

Sheriff Shrader of Jefferson County says that as the Archdiocese prepared to begin an investigation into the construction of the fence and concertina wire around the convent, a person who went by the name "Templar" (police authorities are unanimous that is probably not his real name) called the Front Range Sawatch Range Multijurisdictional Task Force to inform them that the nuns who live at the convent were under threat of being murdered. Agent in Charge DeAndre Bailey immediately notified Sheriff Schrader, and police units arrived with a half hour, at 11 am on Monday. However, except for vicious attack guard dogs, the convent was empty. Sheriff's deputies guarding the intersection of Old Goldmine Road and Stapleton Rd had attempted to stop a van which had nuns in the back of it, driven by a "Caucasian man in a brown coat, and an African American woman", but the bus containing the nuns ran the checkpoint, and the officers in pursuit had a mechanical breakdown.

((Picture of a small 16 seat airport shuttle bus) Caption: "The van looked like this above, and was rented from the Denver International Airport, as the dash camera of the cruiser took pictures of the license plate".)

The FRSRMTF and the Sheriff's office are continuing the search. If anyone has information regarding the location of the two suspects and the nuns, please call the Task Force Hotline at (800) 536-7653 or the Jefferson County Sheriff's Department.

The aircraft was just beginning final approach when the pilot reported sucking in a great number of albatrosses that flew up from the sea at the last minute. All three crewmembers perished and one man on the ground, and the plane burned for four hours. Fortunately, this part of the beach was not being used, since it was late October. The man on the ground was using the undeveloped area before the airport approach way for bird watching.

Civil aeronautics experts say a bird strike of this magnitude are very rare, but witnesses along the beach to the north testify to the large amount of albatrosses in the area. Georgia Gaetti, head of Italy's Accident Investigation Board, refused to give a definite cause yet, but did comment that if it was a bird strike, "then this was extraordinary bad luck."

Several officers said they heard a shout from upstairs, but did not think anything of it, and the body was only discovered at around 9 pm, by Sergeant Halladay, who noticed the lights on in the office, and the door ajar.

Jameson Freedman was a police detective who had been surrounded by tragedy. His partner, Gwynith MacIntyre, was murdered on June 29, in what police believe was a staged suicide. Only two weeks ago, a known mafia associated named Johnathan Alberto Giacomo tried to assassinate Detective Freedman outside the Blue and Gold tavern, a popular city drinking establishment. Reports indicate the Detective Freedman was killed by multiple stab wounds, sources indicating that there was more than one assailant.

Detective Freedman was known to be a member of Front Range Sawatch Range Multijurisdictional Task Force, and police sources believe he was one of their most effective officers, as he was instrumental in a certain investigation regarding local opiate dealing. CBI Agent in Charge DeAndre Bailey declined comment, and stated that since it was a policeman killed in the police headquarters, a local detective and the PPPD Internal Affairs department were handling the case. The primary on the case, twenty-two year veteran Carl Smith stated he does not comment on active investigations. However, one police source that requested anonymity suggested that there is a growing feeling that the FRSRM Task Force is contributing to the rise of police homicides, due to its dangerous mission.

Another homicide strikes Police 2015 Nov 03 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

Wednesday, November 3, 2015 - Pokoh's Peak, CO - In what police say is a sign of escalating violence, the corpse of Detective Jameson Freedman was stolen from the Pokoh's Peak General Hospital morgue early Tuesday morning. Security cameras show a single person enter the morgue, and overpower Daniel Lewis Stephenson, 23, a medical student attending the University of Colorado and working part time as the overnight morgue clerk. The student was strangled and left to die on the tile floor of the morgue, and the assailant eluded the night staff and went out the garage where bodies are picked up from. As noted, investigations are continuing.

Police sources says this recent murder is greatly connected to the hidden drug war that started with the assassination of Martine de Fontaine back in March, and has escalated from there on. The governor is said to be considering ordering more assets to the Pokoh's Peak area, but has ruled out deploying the National Guard, for now.

TF finds nuns in abandoned home 2015 Nov 05 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

- November 6, 2016 - DeAndre Bailey, head of the Front Range Sawatch Range Multijurisdictional Task Force, announced today that the governor's appointed task force, in coordination with the Jefferson County Sheriff's Department, located the 11 Norbertine nuns that were kidnapped by parties unknown on Monday, October 26th. Acting on a tip from the kidnappers themselves, deputies found the nuns in an abandoned ski chalet near Mount Tom off Golden Gate Road in the north of the County. After a brief interview, acting on a direct request of the Archbishop, the nuns were transported to a different convent somewhere to the east.

While Agent Bailey admitted that the kidnappers did break laws crashing through a police roadblock, after interviewing the nuns, it seems that the two suspects were experiencing paranoid delusions due to tampered marijuana, and once they came to their senses called the police to have the nuns picked up. It seems that the pair were concerned that the nuns were in danger of the Illuminati, and that's why they grabbed the nuns. However, the nuns reportedly have suffered no lasting psychological scars. Sheriff Shrader indicated while the charges remain outstanding, the Task Force and his department would not aggressively pursue to the young adults, as with the spate of homicides, they were "more important things".

Attempted Homicide in Pokoh's Peak 2015 Nov 20 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

Thursday, November 19th, 2015 - Pokoh's Peak, CO - In what is described as a vicious attack, assailants invaded 121 Clear Creek Boulevard and assaulted the owner, Giles Hammond, a retired librarian, who was home at the time. At least two assailants viciously beat and stabbed Hammond, who miraculously survived due to the prompt arrival of Emergency Services. The assailants attempted to also destroy the house using accelerants and caused extensive damage to the main floor, although it is not yet known whether the structure will be condemned.

The case has been assigned to the Front Range Sawatch Range Multijurisdictional Task Force, since it is similar to revenge killings made by some drug smuggling organizations in South Dakota. Agent DeAndre Bailey, the beleaguered head of the Task Force, addressed reporters and stated that while Mr. Hammond was not originally in the Task Force's view, he would be now, and they would wait patiently for the victim to reach a condition that they would be able to talk to the police. In the meantime, city police officers will now have a constant guard on Mr. Hammond's hospital room. Bailey commented, "Maybe it was a case of mistaken identity, or Mr. Hammond is involved with something dangerous. I hope he understands his best chance for justice and safety lies with cooperating with the Task Force."

November 20, 2015 - Denver, CO - Early Thursday morning, the 19th, there was a huge gun battle occurring at the playground of Arapaho and 30th Street. However, when police arrived, there were no signs of victims or assailants, but there was a great deal of evidence of the attack. Police were alerted when Joseph Franklin Dade, 18, of the Five Points neighborhood, was admitted to Presbyterian - Saint Luke's Medical Center with a gunshot wound. It is not known who was involved with the shooting, but has been determined that Dade was wearing the gang colors of the Five Points White Elephants, a local organized group successful in keeping control of the Five Points for over sixty years. The police investigation is continuing, but a Denver PD spokeswoman assured the press that no bystanders were harmed.

Archbishop's staff attacked! 2015 Nov 23 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

Tuesday, November 24, 2015 - Denver, Colorado - The violence that has infected the area since the beginning of the year has struck close to a Denver icon. Justice Kowalski, a known fugitive who has been charged with multiple homicides of policemen, broke into the dormitory of the Cathedral Basilica of the Immaculate Conception, the seat of Archbishop Samuel J. Aquila. Kowalski, murdered a church employee, Dexter Macius, 29, a Brazilian national on a work/education visa to study theology, and assaulted Father Matteo Tornincasa, 69, with an archaic broadsword, early Monday morning at around 5am. Four others were in the building, but all escaped harm.

Tornincasa, originally from Camastra, a sea side village in southern Sicily, is recovering after surgery in St Anthony's Hospital. Tornincasa is a member of the Jesuits, and consented to be interviewed after the surgery by the press. "Please, do not harm the woman. I believe she is addicted, and her actions are not her own. She claimed to be killing us because DeAndre Bailey, a friend of mine, is some sort of Soldier of the Church hunting her and those precious to her. It is a sad think what narcotics and hallucinogenics can do to a person." Agent in Charge DeAndre Bailey, when asked for a comment at his task force office in Pokoh's Peak, noted he could hardly be a soldier of the Catholic church, being a Muslim. He also explained that Kowalski's ire has been drawn to him, since she is a known associate of Andre Jacobs, a known leader of a criminal organization in Pokoh's Peak, and that the late Detective Jameson Freedman, slain recently in the very offices of the task force, was investigating Jacobs at Bailey's command.

Lawsuit filed against Daily News, 2015 Nov 26 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

November 27, 2015 - Pokoh's Peak, CO - Today in Colorado District Court, a civil suit was filed against the State of Colorado, Colorado Bureau of Investigation Agent DeAndre Bailey, and the Pokoh's Peak Daily News on behalf of Andre Jacobs, who was referred to by Agent Bailey in an article about the attack on the Basillica with a unflattering characterization.

Margaery Potter, a well-known local lawyer, alerted news organizations to the suit and held a news conference on the steps of the city's District Court. After making disparaging comments about the task Force that DeAndre Bailey heads being ineffective, she explained that "...at this point I am filing a Lawsuit on behalf of my client due to Bailey's frivolous comments. We as American citizens enjoy Constitutional freedoms that many other individuals do not. I am, and I know my client is also, staunch supports of the first amendment. However, freedom of speech does not authorize the Government to make false accusations against a citizen. In fact, it strictly forbids the government from doing so."

Potter admitted that Jacobs had made mistakes in his youth and has served time in prison, but that he has been a model citizen and business owners. Sources say that he has a felony record in California.

Potter continued , "Special Agent in Charge DeAndre Bailey's statements are a clear Detriment to Character made in a very public venue against my client. Mr. Jacobs and I have discussed this at length. It's unclear if Bailey has a problem with individuals that have made past mistakes and reformed or just African Americans in general. Again though, that is conjecture on our part. We are not accusing Bailey of racism. That would be almost as frivolous as naming someone the leader of a criminal organization without any evidence of any crime linking to them."

Potter then summed up , "In light of this, I have filed a civil Lawsuit against the Pokoh's Peak Daily News, DeAndre Bailey, and the Front Range Swatch Range Multijurisdictional Task Force. We have asked for a Front Page retraction and apology from the Pokoh's Peak Daily News, and punitive damages from both DeAndre Bailey, and the Front Range Swatch Range Multijurisdictional Task Force in the sum of $1,250,000.00 to be donated to local a local charitable organization called the Helping Hands Mission... Thank you all for your time."

When asked for a comment after the presentation, Agent Bailey, who is also African American, simply replied, "Not the first time I've been called an Uncle Tom, won't be the last time." His attorney, Patrick Byrne, indicated all other questions should go through his office.

Letter from the Ombudsman of the Pokoh Peak's Daily News

Our readers,

As you know, we have recently been named in a lawsuit regarding an article that was published on November 23, 2015. Reviewing this, while we are not going to print a retraction, we wish to clarify that the Daily News did, at no time, report that Andre Jacobs was a criminal in any direct manner, and we have no evidence that he is one, and we have not implied that he is. Our employees merely reported the words of an important public personage, and his accusations, which, by its very definition, is news.

We publish this clarification in the hopes that our readers understand our position. The truth of the matter is, DeAndre Bailey said that comment about Andre Jacobs, and we reported it. Those are the facts.

Controversy Surrounds Task Force 2015 Dec 09 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

Thursday, December 10th, 2015 - Pokoh's Peak, CO - It has been reported that DeAndre Bailey, the CBI agent who was appointed by the Governor to head up the Front Range Sawatch Range Multijurisdictional Task Force this spring after the a spate of violent multiple homicides, and who has recently been sued by a local resident for making allusions to said resident's character, has found himself in more controversy. A police insider who declined to be identified noted that Bailey did not report to the police that he had called Jameson Freedman to the office on Monday, November 2nd, which would probably make him the last person to see PPPD detective alive. He only recounted this when he was called in as part of the investigation into Freedman's death. Freedman was brutally slain in the Task Force's office shortly after arriving for the summons. When asked for comment, Agent Bailey declined to say anything.

Grumbles of lax security in the task forces offices (the second floor of the main PPPD headquarters building was breached by unknown assailants on May 27th), some insiders have begun questioning the operational procedures of the security for both the police force, and the state wide Task Force. Recently, the fire escape, which primary investigator Detective Carl Smith confirmed was used in both incidents, was removed by city workers and replaced with a interior rope ladder. No leads on the previous attack exist at this time, but Detective Smith believes they are related, but would say no more on the matter.

Motive Behind Homicide Baffles 2015 Dec 14 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

December 14, 2015 - Pokoh's Peak, CO - The murder of Thomas Fillory III at the Northside Mall as he was leaving for the day has been stymied by a lack of motive, so say police insiders about the shocking homicide that occurred in the parking structure during last Wednesday's rush hour.

Fillory, who was a senior partner at Pokoh's Peak Investment, Inc., was ambushed at his vehicle after he left for the day. Eyewitnesses were waved away by a man in front of Fillory's car, but interviews by police afterwards showed that the man, dressed in a black hoodie and sweatpants, with a baseball cap, was probably a suspected assailant. Fillory was pronounced dead at the scene, and transported to Pokoh's Peak General Hospital after his vehicle became fully involved with a fire.

Local police are still struggling to find out exactly why Mr. Fillory was targeted, as it is assumed that it was not theft since the car burned and Mr. Fillory had access to a sizable amount of cash within his office. Police detectives are combing through financial and legal records to determine if it was related to his business. Timothy Nguyen, acting spokesman for the Front Range Sawatch Range Multijurisidictional Task Force, was unaware of any connection to the task Force's mission and Mr. Fillory's death, but would thoroughly vet the information "as long as it did not interfere with the original investigation."

Thomas Fillory III was buried in Fairmount Cemetery in Denver. His father, Thomas Fillory, Jr, his only known next of kin, could not be reached.

Real Truth For Those Who Can See 2015 Dec 26 Media (Nighthawk)

TRUTH BITS COMES TO THE PEAK

OH my darlings, the goings-ON in Colorado! I heard about the police cover-ups, the so-called "Special Task Force", and of course, the zombies! (The aerial picture of the Leadville National Fish Hatchery from +bbread 7/120 and a link to the story have been included). Illegal immigrants don't travel in packs and suddenly keel over! Sure, the sheeple will fall for that story, but we know better, don't we, Truthers!

Your Auntie Enygma couldn't resist any more, and so I've left the swamps for the mountains, and it looks like I've gotten here just. In. Time. After a private interview with a source who begged that he not be named (due to his OFFICIAL status), in which the gruesome spectacle of a man, mauled and swollen due to MASSIVE venom-levels which have not been identified. Now this is not some small snack attack, my darlings. No, this man's entire body was so swollen that he couldn't even be identified! And he wasn't the first. Oh my, no no. There were two other bodies found nearby, having been EATEN.(A link to +bbread 7/213)

Now, I'm thinking chupacabra. A large one, that's come north. But you can be sure that I'll find the TRUTH. Because remember, my darling believers, when you can't trust the puppet media, or the government acting in your "best interests", you can always trust Auntie Enygma. Stay safe, and keep your eyes open!

USAF mishap causes massive damage 2016 Jan 01 Media (Gyrfalcon)

January 2, 2016 - Pokoh's Peak, CO - In what is a potential disaster, two USAF ground support aircraft accidentally bombed a Pokoh's Peak farm in the early morning hours today. Emergency crews and government agencies on site, but the damage has yet to be determined.

In a quick briefing by Major Jennifer Edward Donatel, two A-10 Thunderbolt II ground support aircraft, affectionately known as Warthogs, from Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado Springs, apparently went off course for a live fire exercise, and dropped their entire payload on what is known locally as the Aeduna Farmstead, five miles south of Pokoh's Peak just off Evergreen Canyon Road. There is no official estimates of casualties or damages, but one sheriff's deputy who served in Afghanistan stated that "Warthogs don't leave much, after they do what they do."

More details will be printed once it becomes available.

JeffCo bombing "accident" - USAF 2016 Jan 18 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

January 18, 2016 - Colorado Springs, CO - Today, the USAF announced the findings of the investigation to the accidental bombing of a local cottage farm in Jefferson County, the Aeduna Famrstead. Major Jennifer Donatel briefed reporters as to the circumstances regarding the mistake.

"On January 2nd, two A-10 Thunderbolt II ground support aircraft left Petersen Air Force Base to make initiate a live fire exercise at the Lowry Bombing and Gunnery Range, in Arapahoe County, east of Aurora, Colorado. The technician team that pre-programed the LiveEx parameters accidently confused Lowry with Genesee Mountain Park Training Annex, a Cold War radar station that was decommisioned. It had been used as a location for strategic bombing exercises in the 1970s and 1980s, and a technician, using the wrong code book, inputted the wrong coordinates. Major Kevin A. Ashley, commanding officer of the 358th Fighter Squadron, and 1st Lieutenant Daniel P. Lothan, his wing man, took off and found themselves over Jefferson County early in the morning. Major Ashley, on his own initiative, after realizing that he was west of Denver, instead of south east of it, decided to unload his ordinance for safety reasons in an area according to his map was unoccupied. Major Ashley incorrectly identified the location, and the Aeduna Farmstead was bumbed with 6 mk-77 500 lb incinderary bombs and 6 Mk 82 cluster bombs. As of this time, no one was known to be injured."

The USAF spokesmen continued, "Major Ashley has had a reprimand put into his permanent file, and has chosen to resign his commission. Lieutenant Lothan has been transferred to Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, in Arizona. A letter of reprimand put in his file as well. The technician team faced non-judicial punishment. Of course, the Air Force will compensate the owner of the property once they file a claim with the Department of Defense."

The bombing that took place five miles south of Pokoh's Peak, caused an estimated five hundred thousand dollars of damage, plus an exhaustive effort to remove all the unused cluster munitions that were left on the range.

Local News: Celebrity Visits Local 2016 Jan 31 Media (Crow)

______________________________________________________________________________

POKOH'S PEAK: On January 31st, Aaron Lewis, country singer and former lead singer of the popular rock group Staind, visited Trade Winds Cafe. The cafe is a popular, local hangout.

Lewis was seen sitting with former American Idol contestant Andrea Henderson. <There is a picture of the two of them talking at a booth.> Henderson, whose musical career had a brief spark after her time on Idol, was seen working at the cafe.

Lewis has been in the public eye recently for his criticism of Atlanta Records after its purchase by Pentex Inc., one of the largest mega corporations in the world. Since comments made earlier in 2015, his musical career has faded. In early 2016, he was charged with slander by Pentex Inc., but the charges were settled out of court.

Lewis declined to comment as to the reason for his visit.

Arson strikes Denver churches 2016 Jan 31 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

Denver Colorado - January 31, 2016 - In a mysterious, but coordinated attack, three Denver area churches were burned down late last night and early this morning in what authorities are calling a coordinated arson rampage. The motive behind the attacks are unclear, because all three churches were closed and not in use, and served different segments of the community.

The old Bethlehem Baptist Church of Denver in the Baker neighborhood, the Saint Atrios Greek Orthodox Church on Montview Boulevard, and the First Adventist Church in Darby were all attacked and set afire around midnight on the 30th, which suggests that it was coordinated. Neighbors heard brief gunfire and saw the fire, but could not identify any vehicles or perpetrators. Only in the case of the Baker neighborhood church, was their deaths, as locals say a family of illegal immigrants who had arrived from Central America had been squatting in the parsonage since their arrival at the beginning of winter. Police sources confirm that the family, a man, woman, eight-year-old girl and new born infant perished in the blaze. They are treating the deaths as homicides.

At this time, the FBI will not be involved, as there is no indication as this was a hate crime, because only one church, again, the Bethlehem Baptist Church, had a minority as the majority of the former congregation. However, local sources do not rule out radical anti-theists.

______________________________________________________________________________

MOAPA, NEVADA (AP): On January 16th, well after dusk, a laboratory north of Las Vegas exploded. The explosion released several toxic materials into the desert.

In another arson incident, Thorne Industries Laboratories, a branch of Thorne Industries, suffered another attack. In 2015, the fracking company suffered several attacks from eco-terrorists, including an explosion of a distributing facility in Pokoh's Peak.

The most recent explosion destroyed a laboratory and research facility. Authorities have said that at least nine men and women lost their lives, and that some of them died from heavy ordinance, knife wounds, and gunfire, presumedly at the hands of terrorists.

After the explosion, several hazardous materials leaked. Fortunately, emergency personnel were able to contain the leaks before it contaminated much of the surrounding area.

The Sheriff Department arrived on the scene. A spokeswoman said, "We will find the people responsible for this catastrophe and bring them to justice. There is no excuse for this kind of behavior, and it does nothing but harm what we want to protect: mother nature. Thorne Industries has joined top energy leaders in developing the safest means of containing its waste, and they are a respected employer in the area."

In 2015, Thorne Industries was criticized for its poor handling of toxic waste. In under six months, they funded numerous programs, spending close to $300,000,000 to improve their containment facilities and procedures. In early 2016, they ranked among the safest energy companies in the world.

Thorne Industries has declined to comment.

Tabloid 2016 Feb 03 Media (Crow)

______________________________________________________________________________

Several tabloids and internet sites have picked up a similar story, and it's also found some traction as a comedic piece in major news outlets. The story coincides with another story, from legitimate sources, concerning a major accident on I-15 north of Las Vegas, Nevada, on January 16, 2016. One man was killed and several were critically injured. The original tabloid story is as follows:

I SAW BIGFOOT ON I-15

Jessica Pence, who lives in Riverside, NV, was driving home from work when she saw a major car wreck on I-15. Not uncommon. What surprised Pence was the person she saw on the road.

"It was dark out, but my headlights were bright enough for me to see him," Pence said. The next part she says in a lowered voice, her hands trembling. "He was big. Twelve, maybe fourteen feet tall. He had a lot of hair, and he walked right across the road until a car hit him. Then he... he got up, pulled the man out of the car, and smashed him against the road. Then another car hit the first, and I nearly crashed."

Pence works as a bartender in Las Vegas, but you've never heard of the place she works, and she won't give it. She goes by Candy. "I serve more than drinks," Pence says with a bright smile.

"I could barely move. He came right over to my car, looked in the window, and asked if I could spare some water. I didn't know what to do. I just saw Bigfoot kill a man. I handed him my water, and he left."

Pence's apartment smells like alcohol, but that's no surprise. There are bottles everywhere. "I'm a collector," she says.

Now, she's a believer.

Tragic Fire in Littleton 2016 Feb 08 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

February 9, 2016 - Littleton, CO - A house fire in Little claimed the lives of a four person family and four fire fighters around mid day yesterday. Fire investigators are still trying to piece together the chronology of events, but 911 calls were first recorded coming in just before 12:30 yesterday afternoon at a house on South Maxwell Road.

Steven Henry Garner, 45, a vice president for AXA Equitable Life Insurance, was found dead in the burned out wreckage of his home, along with his wife , Courtney, 42, his son Blaine, 16, and his younger son, Jaden, 11. Investigators surmise that they were in the recreation room in the basement and succumbed to smoke inhalation before fire fighters arrived. Meanwhile, deputy chief Harlan Thomas, 52, and firefighters Youssef al Hassan, 36, Richard Carraday, 29, and Keith Mercer, 24, died while fighting the blaze when the roof of the main structure collapsed. Initial reports says the fire started in the garage and rapidly spread to the remaining buildings. A full arson investigation has begun with the aid of state agencies.

(The well-dressed anchor looks up from her 'notes', looking at the camera, and reading from the teleprompter, with an image of Colorado behind her, with Pokoh's Peak marked on the map)

Breaking News here at CNN. Reports are coming in that there was a bombing attack at a caf in downtown Pokoh's Peak, Colorado and at least twelve are dead.

(Behind her, there is some ubiquitous cellphone video footage of the Trade Winds Caf and neighboring buildings have small whisps of smoke coming out. Pokoh's Peak PD and Jefferson County Sherrif's Department vehicles are everywhere, as fire trucks and ambulances) People are rushing into the Caf, whose windows are blown out and whose door is out in the middle of the street. Flashes of other people on the street, dressed in winter coats, hats and gloves, point at the smoking building. The time is 11:15am CST on February 9th).

Information is still coming in, but there seems to be no indication of it being a terrorist attack. However, Denver, just over an hour away by vehicles, has a sizable Somali population. Right now, we are going to go to our local affiliated report, Richard Hurst, from our Denver office.

(Richard Hurst is hatless, but has expensive leather gloves and a black woolen court. Behind him, there is the same shot of Trade Winds, but the smoke is gone, and now there are FBI and CBI vans joined the emergency vehicles.)

Sources here say that the bomb was very powerful, and was purposefully filled with projectiles to injure and kill people. However, FBI agents are refusing further answers at this time, and are trying to prevent any more information from coming out. In Washington, no statement has yet been issued from the White House.

FBI says terror bombing not Islami 2016 Feb 11 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

Friday, February 12, 2016 - Pokoh's Peak , CO - The terror attack that killed eight this past Tuesday in this bustling resort city in Central Colorado was 'more than likely' not the result of Islamic extremists, says Joyce HIttner, the FBI agent in charge of the Denver office, and lead person on the case. While details are not being released due to current investigation proceeding, sources in the local federal government offices in Denver believe it also wasn't domestic terrorism is, but rather a known Mexican ultra nationalist, Cayetano Jesus del Campo, a drug cartel leader who works out of the city of Torreon in the state of Coahuila. Del Campo has been reportedly very angry with Republican presidential Donald Trump's promise of building a border wall, and although the Republican primary campaign is nowhere near finished, has made several inflammatory comments about the whole idea.

The blast itself was centered on the Trade Winds Caf, a site that had been bombed before in January of 2015, where Darren Thomas Coal, a mentally imbalanced man, blew himself up in the caf and injuring a half a dozen. This attack had eight people killed, including Elizabeth Jackson, 31, a Trade Winds hostess, Pooja Patel, 23, a waitress, Mark Evan Franklin, 22, a Chilcott University graduate student, Bonnie Telarico, 53, a sculptress, and Hyacinth Sarah MacGraw, 29, a web site designer all from Pokoh's Peak. Also killed were Hubert J Johnson, 61, and Elaine Viola Johnson, 59, of Memphis, Tennessee, who were on vacation. The identity of the eighth victim has yet to be released.

Agent Hittner was highly confident that very soon they would announce the facts of the attack, but refused to confirm or deny the accusations leveled on Del Campo. Meanwhile, a spokesman for the Trump campaign reportedly stated that such tragedies "are exactly why a wall is necessary" and expressed their regard for local law enforcement.

Task Force head ambushed - one dea 2016 Feb 11 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

Friday, February 12, 2016 - Pokoh's Peak , CO - Further complicating the extensive investigation of last Tuesday's terror attack, FBI Special Agent in Charge Joyce Hittner announced that Front Range Sawatch Range Multijurisdictional Task Force head DeAndre Bailey, an agent with the Colorado Bureau of Investigation, has been missing since Tuesday night. She had announced thet Agent Bailey, along with his driver, Sergeant Timothy Nguyen of the Colorado State Patrol, had been dispatched to investigate a possible source of explosives used in the bombing, where plastic cap serial numbers had been traced to the Half and Half Stone Quarry in Twin Cedars, Douglas County.

(An official picture of his DeAndre Bailey in his CBI uniform)

Local Douglas County deputies discovered the Bailey's and Nguyen's state vehicle crashed by the side of the road, and the sergeant deceased inside the vehicle. Hittner explained there was 'overwhelming evidence of an attack', which police insiders told reporters that there was a firefight with the use of automatic weapons.

Bailey has been missing for two days and police searches of the Platte river valley have turned up no leads. Forensic analysis indicates that Bailey was injured at the site.

The FRSRMTF has had mixed success combatting the wave of drug related violence in the area at the beginning of last year. However, with the demise of its leadership, it's future status is in limbo. Meanwhile, Agent Hittner set up a hotline for any information regarding the whereabouts of Agent Bailey.

Kidnapped agent's body found 2016 Feb 13 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

Sunday, February 14, 2016 - Denver, Colorado - DeAndre Bailey, the head of the anti-cartel task force based in Pokoh's Peak, was confirmed dead after his body was delivered to the Denver Islamic Society late Friday night, three days after he went missing in Douglas County. Wrapped in a shroud, witnesses who found the body said that the agent, a known Muslim, had been tortured before his body had been deposited at the Center on Birch Street.

For the past year, Bailey had overseen the Front Range Sawatch Range Multijurisdictional Task Force in Pokoh's Peak for nearly a year, to combat the heavy incidence of violence that had surrounded the area designated in the task force. This task force had linked the incidents which killed scores of people, including a dozen law enforcement personal, to a local gang war among groups of organized crime in the area. The task force had succeeded in settling the violence, but had not made any major arrests. Joyce Hittner, the Special Agent in Charge of the FBI Denver office, believes that Bailey had been so successful that the man the FBI suspects at being behind the most recent Trade Winds Cafe bombing, Cayetano Jesus del Campo, had deliberately targeted Bailey, which resulted in the death of Bailey and his driver, Sgt. Timothy Nguyen at a Twin Cedars quarry last Tuesday.

Bailey is survived by his father, Junior Bailey, and his mother, Skanti Africa-Bailey, professor of Sociology at the University of Denver, his brother Nelson, his sister Kalaiah, his wife Kyeisha (Foreman) Bailey and his daughter Malia and his son Devin. Funeral services will be held today at 2pm, at the Muslim Garden Cemetery in Bennett.

In a press release today, Mr. Jacob McLaughlin, current head of the Aperta Society of Scholars, formally announced its closure. The Aperta Society was founded close to a century ago by George Thompson and Caroline Meredith, and remained a small local group which supported a few local charities. McLaughlin took over the position in the absence of its former chairman, but failing membership and attendence has taken its toll.

"A shakeup in membership a few years ago has had attendence drop significantly, and new enrollment is non-existent," McLaughlin notes. "I'd like to thank Pokoh's Peak for hosting the organization for as long as it has."

Riots in Alabama 2016 Feb 24 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

Thursday, February 25, 2016 - Montgomery, AL - The governor of Alabama announced the cessation of martial law after what appears to be the first calm night in a week. What started as a discovery of an abattoir in the small town of Hope Hull, just southwest of Montgomery, escalated into rioting when an Alabama state trooper brought in to help with the massive investigation, shot and killed an African American man, Danyeel Danton of Montgomery, and injured two men with him.

The abattoir, in the words of the FBI spokesman David Blough, was found at Farwell's Farm, a cotton farm that had been abandoned after it had been foreclosed on by a bank six years ago. Local boys fund the evidence of violence and remains of many people. In the cavernous old style brick barn, police officials found evidence of at least forty corpses and markings of an undecipherable nature. The FBI was called in to help with the crime scene investigation, and asked the governor for assistance. Officers from many Alabama jurisdictions were dispatched to Hope Hull, to help canvassing the property and running down leads.

On Saturday night, Trooper Kevin George Dixon pulled over Danton and his two friends, Niall Younger, of Montgomery, and Edward Fisher IV, of Boylston, for driving suspiciously, although they were returning from the Mississippi State - Alabama basketball game. According to traffic cams, Danton cooperated, but Trooper Dixon returned to his vehicle, and when he returned, began firing at Danton's Nissan Sentra. Sunday morning, someone had released the dash camera footage to the public, and Montgomery the scene of both non-violent and violent protest. The national guard was dispatched, and for three days Montgomery was the scene of protests. However, with the arrest of Dixon for homicide in the second degree and two attempted homicides, and the presence of the Guard, Wednesday night passed peacefully, and the governor lifted the proclamation.

March 16th, 2016 - Pokoh's Peak, Colorado - Police are investigating a serious explosion that happened on Parmalee Gulch Road last night at about 1am. A 1970s truck with Republic of Mexico plates blew up on an isolated patch what is also known as County Road 120 after it was involved in a crash due to icy conditions. There were no survivors, and the partial remains of four people have yet to be identified.

Investigators estimate that the vehicle carried at least four hundred pounds of explosives).

Jefferson County Sherriff Deputies are looking into it, as well as the FBI and the Department of Homeland security. However, a police source says that it is highly unlikely it is related to terrorism or drug violence, and more likely a black-market delivery of explosives. The FBI will hold a news conference when they have more details.

At approximately 10pm, nine people, two with shotguns, blew through the front glass partitions and preceded to demolish the six story establishment. While there was extensive damage (police sources estimate in the hundreds of thousands of dollars), there are leads to the perpetrators or the motives involved in the massive vandalism.

The General Manager of the SOURCE club, Billy Fraser confirmed no employees were injured, but declined to comment further, citing the police investigation, but did release a statement from , the club owner, Shawn Nielsen. "A number of the gangs that have recently been moving into town have targeted The SOURCE Club because they have been rejected in their attempts to turn The SOURCE into their personal gang turf when the club opens later this year. Giving in to these gangs will only endanger the club goers who just want a nice place where they can just enjoy a fun night on the town. Dont worry, we will fix things back up..."

Bodies found in Sand Creek Park 2016 Mar 22 Media (Gyrfalcon)

Denver, CO - Sunday, March 17, 2016 - Continuing a spate of violence across the region, six bodies were found in Sand Creek Park in western Aurora early Sunday morning by police and FBI agents in what was described by police sources as 'grisly'.

Only three of the dead have been identified, all three former member of the Smaldone family of organized crime. They had been shot and knifed, two seemingly execution style, although sources say their limbs were unbound. Three looked to have been crushed by a heavy weight, although police speculate it was a construction vehicle of some sort, although no witnesses remember any noise. Police say that there was a very substantial amount of ammunition expended, but security guards at the nearby University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus claim they heard nothing.

Also, at least two large fires were set, although there were no reports of why it was. One federal informant, speaking on strict confidentiality, says that the phrase "soberano de las muertos" was written in blood on the Fitzsimmons Parkway thirty feet wide. The phrase means "ruler of the dead" in Spanish. Also, found carved in a tree was the phrase "Chinese gotta lotta hells" and an ear pinned to it with a shard of a femur. However, Joyce Hitner, lead investigator, refuses comment and asked the paper not to use the description. Citing the public's right to know, we declined.

March 19, 2016 - Pokoh's Peak, CO - Chief of police Samuel "Smokey" Johnson held a brief news conference today regarding accusations that two vehicles were burned in the Gode Lake Fairgrounds area over the weekend, and the police covered the story up. Chief Johnson decried the accusations as ridiculous, saying that if journalists had missed an event, that is not evidence of a cover up. He indicated that there is no violence problem in Pokoh's Peak, and if someone wanted to look for a problem, they should look at Denver.

Afterwards, Chief Johnson's Administrative Assistant, Renee Hayes, passed out a brief investigation summary of the vandalism that occurred at Gode Lake Fairgrounds. Someone blew up a vintage 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air after experimenting with engine boosts. The resulting blast also destroyed a 2014 Volvo XC90 that had been stolen earlier in the day. While no one was injured, accusations that there was a firefight on the street outside were found to be false, as police investigators could not find any witnesses of said activity.

Gas Main disaster in Roxborough Pa 2016 Apr 03 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

March 20, 2016 - Roxborough Park, CO - This affluent enclave of Denver suffered a tradgedy of immense proportions over the weekend as what is suspected to be faulty gas lines laid by Xcel Energy of Minneapolis, Minnesota. An impromptu press confgerence was held at the head of Choke cherry way, the spur road which had the faulty gas lines. It was discovered early Saturday morning that all fourteen houses had been filled with natural gas that had been used for fuel for the home heating systems. For some reason, county inspectors noted that the gas did not have the chemical markers that make the gas smell. It is estimated that forty five people, including whole families, had been killed by being aphyxiated by the gas.

(picture of a group of well -dressed people addressing a crowd of reporters in front of a street which shows a good number of wealthy homes, easily costing a half million or more. Since the picture is in the evening, the street has flood lights everywhere, and shows one house has been demolished, with two front loaders in the front yard, one with the hoe part blown or torn off) CAPTION: Douglas County Commissioners address reporters outside of Choke Cherry way. (OOC: If you know anyone in Denver, please drop Gyrfalcon a mail regarding picture in paper).

Saturday morning contractors had arrived to begin excavation of a new pool for 7039 Choke Cherry Lane, the house of Donald Lewis, his wife and two children. One of the excavators must have ignited a pocket of the gas, and destroyed the front loader and the rest of the house. Douglas County deputies prevented any photographers from getting closer to the wreckage.

Arson in north neighborhood 2016 Apr 12 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

Wednesday, March 23, 2016 - Pokoh's Peak, CO - Authorities are investigating a mysterious and baffling arson that further destroyed an already burned estate located just outside the city limits last Monday night. The Wimberley estate, which burned down last year, was the site of two intense fires that strangely enough, was filled with ammunition. The fire department needed to wait two hours for all the ammunition that apparently was in the basement of the property to finish detonating. Two vehicles were found on the property, but they turned out to have been stolen from their owners at least a month ago. The investigation continues, but police sources note that one of the vehicles was stolen in Tampico, Mexico, so it is probably related to the current internal conflict between Mexican cartels.

DEA taskforces raids Golden mine 2016 Apr 17 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

March 26th, 2017 - Golden, Colorado - local law enforcement officials from Jefferson Count aided a DEA team on a raid on suspected Los Zetas gang members that were using the recently closed Jackson Gulch Pegmatite Mine as a base of operations for the turf gang war currently going on in the Denver metropolitan area. Although the Jefferson County Rapid Response Team was dispatched to the area, Agents of the Drug Enforcement Agency, a division of the federal Department of Justice, led the attack in late evening hours. Eyewitnesses driving along Interstate 70 and Us Route 6 reportedly saw a massive amount of tracer fire enveloping the compound of the Martin Marietta Aggregates Division of the Lockheed Martin Corporation. Police sources say that the DEA has a tight grip on the situation, and is not releasing a lot of information even to other police departments; however, the casualties were deemed to be significant.

(IMAGE: A night shot of an industrial compound at night, with at least two dozen ambulances with their lights on, and a great deal of Jefferson County patrol cars and black SUVs. The picture is taken from altitude, most likely from a helicopter. CAPTION: Emergency rescue crews in the aftermath of the Los Zetas shoot out at the Jackson Gulch pegmatite mine on March 24, 2016).

The Department of Justice refused comment, but Barbara Gehrlich, a spokesperson from Lockheed Martin at their headquarters in Bethesda, Maryland, indicated the company was aware of the incident, and was doing its best to cooperate with law enforcement officials. Ms. Gehrlich indicated that the mine was closed only until an EPA application reopen and expand the mine was approved. Governor John Hickenlooper address reporters saying "It was a shame that so many people lost their lives." A representative of his officer later clarified the statement, stating the governor's office had yet to receive an official preliminary report.

Fallen Angel Denver (Warning! NSFW!)

POSTED March 27th, 2016 by TruthWarrior87

About: (Caught by surveillance camera at my work. This has not been altered in any way. The road is Pena Blvd, the direct way to get to the airport)

(OOC Description: A black Mercedes Benz S-600 four door sedan with plates that seem to be consistent with Colorado plates coloring (the film is too fuzzy to read the plates) is traveling northbound on Pena Boulevard toward Denver International Airport. Suddenly, a figure dressed in what looks like a white business suit, with angelic graceful features (elongated face, ears, eyes, long flowing blonde hair) appears from the left and moves faster than the camera can keep up. The angelic being brings a large sword like object down on the car's hood, slicing into the engine block. The car stops after rolling maybe twenty more feet, dragging the being in front of the grill.

Two men get out of the front doors, armed with weapons. The angelic being, who is moving at such a speed the camera can barely registered details, somehow disables to the two men. It then uses the sword in its hand to open the top of the vehicle like an aluminum can, and you can see the being bend over into the back seat. The creature, by examining it's position, is probably nine feet tall. It does something in the back seat for maybe 90 seconds, and then vanishes toward the Rocky Mountain Arsenal Wildlife Refuge. A few seconds later, the car explodes)

State settles with Jacobs 2016 Apr 17 Media (Gyrfalcon)

March 28, 2016 - Pokoh's Peak, CO - The lawsuit that was filed by Andre Jacobs against the Pokoh's Peak Daily News, DeAndre Bailey, and the State of Colorado has been settled through an agreement days before the civil suit was to go to trial. Details of the settlement were not released, but Arnold Sobchik, a state's attorney, issued the following brief statement. "Mr. Andre Jacobs has not been charged or convicted of any offenses since arriving in Colorado, so the deceased Special Agent in Charge DeAndre Bailey's statement, "Andre Jacobs, a known leader of a criminal organization in Pokoh's Peak" was inaccurate."

The Pokoh's Peak Daily News did not join and was not a partner to the agreement, as we merely reported the words of a state official.

Arson/Homicide causes $1 mil damag 2016 Apr 27 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

April 18, 2016 - Aurora, Colorado - An arson that claimed the lives of thirty illegal immigrants who were riding in train cars and damaged the main railroad yard in this eastern suburb of Denver was connected to the recent Mexican cartel activity by police sources, reporters for the Denver Post have found out. The multiple homicides and arson that severely damaged the CSX siding yard and one of the main spurs will cost the company at least one million dollars to repair, not counting the losses due to the necessity of rerouting traffic. Six railroad cards were burned all together, using an accelerant that was so hot it twisted the rails on the beds below. While insiders say forensic specialists are unsure of what could have caused the warping, it was very clear that in at least two of the cases, illegal immigrants were kept in the lock cars, and the fire was so hot identification has been very slow. The theory of the homicides was that the immigrants found out about a shipment onboard the train, and slain to keep the secret. FBI agents are already on the case, as the train cars would have crossed state lines.

Memorial Day crash kills 10 2016 May 30 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

Tuesday, May 31st, 2016 - (AP) Denver, CO - A stolen van carrying highly flammable material attempted to run a red light at the intersection of Martin Luther King Jr Blvd and Downing Ave, clipped a vehicle that had right of way, and swerved into vehicles in the opposing lane, crashing head on in one vehicle. The resulting fireball engulfed two more vehicles waiting at the light.

Witnesses say that the van, a 1979 Ford Econoline stolen from Oklahoma in March with two occupants, was engaged in a high-speed chase with a yellow and black school bus. The larger vehicle was chasing the van southbound on Downing Ave, and traffic cameras indicated that the chase began in the Five Points neighborhood. At Martin Luther King Jr Boulevard, the van ignored the red light, and side swiped a vehicle driven by Manuel Rodriguez Acala, 41, who was heading to his night shift at the West Book Publishing company. Mr. Rodriguez Acala said the van seemed to careen out of control, and run into the vehicle of Linda and George Schrader, both 51, of Cheyenne, Wyoming, who were returning from a Memorial Day reunion of Mr. Schrader's Marine unit he served with in Desert Storm in San Antonio. The Schrader's were killed instantly. Also killed was Derrick Martin, 32, of Denver, who was driving a Yellow Cab taxi, and the Ramirez family of Golden: Pablo, 34, Allison, 31, Eduardo, 12, and Gustavo, 8, who was also returning home from a Memorial Day picnic in Colorado Springs.

Police officials say the investigation is ongoing, but they believe the accident may be related to the arrival of the Zetas, a hyper violent drug cartel from the border reaches of Mexico. The bus has been photographed and a notice has been spread to all police jurisdictions in the state. The police department's forensic unit said there was a high concentration of flammable fuel in the van, but it's purpose was unknown at this time.

Explosion kills 3 policemen 2016 Jun 09 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

June 9th, 2016 - Aurora Colorado - A police investigation into an arson in Denver has led to the death of two Denver police officers and a ATF agent in an explosion which can only be described as a booby trap.

Firefighters responded to several calls of a house fire at 835 Oswego Street in Aurora on Monday morning, and while putting out the house fire, found a dozen bodies in a dumpster behind a prefabricated building of the home owner and alleged killer, Stephen Drew Tillotson, 38. They also found a military vehicle that has been stolen from the Kansas National guard in early march, parked in the building as well. Once they put the fire out, they determined that the wife, Amanda Leigh Tillotson, had perished in the fire. The two Tillotson daughters, Ashleigh and Britni, were found unharmed at a neighbor's house. The neighbor, Shmuel Aaron Rosenberg, a retired rabbi from Connecticut, told investigators and this reporter that Mr. Tillotson had drove off in a truck after the two girls had run to his house, saying that their mother and father were having a violent argument. Police speculate that Ms. Tillotson had discovered the corpses in the dumpster in the back of his siding repair and installation business, and Stephen Tillotson had reacted poorly. Mr. Rosenberg gave a police of the truck that Mr. Tillotson used. The retiree who had moved to the Denver area because his son works for Matrix Financial Services Corporation, referred to the suspect as "a troubled man who did not see the darkness as it came upon him."

But the tragedy was not over. As the crime lab and police and fire investigators combed the house, Edward R. Yardley of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms came to secure the M11126 Stryker that had been stolen from a national guard armory. Apparently, Mr. Tillotson had rigged the driver's seat with plastic explosives and when agent Yardley sat down, he detonated the bomb. Two Denver Police officers, Jose Tomas Gilliad Ruiz, 26, and Arthur Martin Rodgers, 34, were killed along with Agent Yardley. Four police officers and two crime scene lab technicians were injured, and three houses were condemned due to damage.

(Photograph of a man professionally done, standing on front of a building with siding. The caption reads "Stephen Drew Tillotson")

Tillotson is considered armed and dangerous, and is the subject of a nationwide manhunt. The FBI has taken over the investigation due to the death of a federal officer.

YouTube moderators removed the video and forwarded it to law enforcement within fifteen minutes, but downloads of the video made it to the dark web. Please decide for yourself whether your PC would have the skill to find it on the Dark Web, or an acquaintance downloaded it from YouTube before it was removed).

Title: To Those Who Should Know Better                    Posted By: BeareroftheVoiceTriumphant

Scene: In what seems to be a mid-morning shot on the side of a mountain, four girls between the ages of 12 to 14 are fastened to folding chairs with duct tape. The girls are blindfolded, and are in a state of emotional distress. The camera is positioned so that all four girls can be seen at the same time, and that the Denver skyline is in the behind the furthest left hand girl. The camera never moves during the film.

A man wearing blue jeans, hiking boots, a blue zipper up sweatshirt, and some sort of shroud that covers his head and makes it impossible to see his face, comes up behind the four girls.

"The goddess told me that my time as a messenger is upon me - that I am the bearer of her voice, and the voice of all those she has consumed. If I am worthy, she will consume me and I will serve her for eternity. And thus, she has commanded!"

His voice is strident and high pitched, but you can also tell that he has a microphone within the dark shroud. He takes out a piece of off white paper and reads from it slowly and carefully.

"To Dr. Strangegood of the Spanish Mission. You were warned. Your negotiations were nothing but ridiculous posing, as you made no offer but to interfere more! You cannot defeat the Conquistador, champion of my goddess! Your choice was simple. You were to mind your own business. Dr. Strangegood, this blood is on your hands!"

He removes a 3-inch buck knife from his sweatshirt, and cuts the throat of three of the four girls, starting from left to right. He stops behind the fourth girl, looks at the paper, and reads it again.

"The Conquistador reminds you that you of the Spanish Mission and Doctor Strangegood, this is not your war. All you are doing is prolonging the violence. If you keep interfering with the Revolution, more people will die, because of you."

He takes a lighter and burns the paper to ash.

"All hail the goddess."

He leaves the fourth girl alone, and moves out of the camera. It then turns off and the video ends.

Minner, unarmed, approached the desk sergeant and told him that he was the "messenger of the Dark Goddess", according to police sources, and put his hands on his head.

NE Park Hill neighborhood explodes 2016 Jun 29 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

Denver, CO (AP) Thursday, July 30thIn a bizarre cacophony of violence, Tuesday night, the Northeast Park Hill neighborhood at the intersection of E 35th Ave and Elm St exploded into violence as one man was killed in an attack on a sports utility vehicle around 10pm on Tuesday night. Witnesses, including many cellphone cameras from the nearby apartment complex, shows the vehicle speeding away from the intersection, and then flipping over several times. Whoever was attacking the old 1990s SUV then grabbed the people from the wreck, and shoved them in the trunk of the sedan.

Denver Police are baffled by the way the attack went down, but are certain it is again, part of the diminishing drug territory war between local criminal organizations and two allied cartels from Mexico. The FBI has dispatched a special investigative unit from Washington to handle this investigation, over the objections of the mayor and the chief of Police.

A Dodge Daytona registered to Bryson Atkins lost control on Dam Road, descended the north face of the dam, and slammed into a Honda Accord driven by Brandon Bernard, 28, of Denver, who spun across the interstate and struck a semi driven by Alberto Rodriguez, 42 of Little Rock, Arkansas. Atkins, 22, of Denver, and Tra Carter, 25, also of Denver, were killed, as well as Bernard and Rodriguez. Traffic was held up for hours at the bypass, even with heavy lift helicopters from Buckley Air Force Base aiding in clearance operations.

Monday, July 4, 2016 - Denver, CO (The Denver Post) - In what Denver Police Department officials describe as a possible break in the Mexican cartel violence recently plaguing the city, two men and one woman who are believed to have represented the Torreon cartel were slain by unknown assailants. The Federal Bureau of Investigation was called and, gave tentative identification of one Elizaveta Maria Rubio Suero, age unknown, who was considered to be a top lieutenant in the organization. The other two men were burned beyond recognition. Apparently, they were slain when their limousine stopped at the light for a right turn on Interstate 470 from Quincy Boulevard.

Picture: A black modified Lincoln Town Car so riddled with holes that all four tires are flattened and every window broken. Caption: The limousine that was attacked late Saturday night)

Rubio Suero was identified as unique that she held a position of authority in the alliance of the Zetas, ex national Mexican police who have decided to become their own cartel, and the Torreon cartel, a little known organization apparently attempting to grab territory in Denver as an attempt to move up the ladder. Police insiders speculate that local remnants of the Smaldone crime family, and their Columbian allies, hired muscle from Chicago, Saint Louis or points east to take care of the effective Rubio Suero.

Grisly find in Golden house fire 2016 Jul 14 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

- Friday, July 15, 2016 - Pokoh's Peak Times - An early morning house fire has led to a grisly find in a house fire on Black Birch Lane on Lookout Mountain in northern Jefferson County. A half million dollar skiing lodge held by a consortium of California businesspeople burned down to the ground, but while Golden firefighters were going through the wreckage, they found the charred remains of at least a score of people. Insiders said they were concentrated in one room, so an exact count has not yet been determined. Since the bodies were burned beyond recognition, the Sheriff's department has asked for assistance from both the CBI and the FBI. The recently dispatched Special Administrative Investigative Division was assigned immediately to not only this case, but several cases of mysterious violence that has happened over the last six months.

Opus Dei, Latin for 'Work of God', is a movement within the greater church that teaches that laymen, (that is non-clergy) should strive to live as saints, stressing hard work and competence, as well as taking active part in fighting what it perceives as corrupting influences. The movement has sometimes been accused of conservative militancy, especially for members from the African continent, who have been known to participate in politics and even armed struggle if they believe the cause is right.

(Picture of the Convent of the Sacred Heart last year during the unpleasantness)

The convent itself was the source of some controversy, when eleven Norbertine nuns were kidnapped and later returned after a county wide search by the Front Range Sawatch Range Multijurisdictional Task Force, which disbanded after the death of its leader, CBI agent DeAndre Bailey, earlier this year.

Colorado Day 2016 Jul 31 Media (Dove)

______________________________________________________________________________

Our favorite state turns 140 years old on Monday, and as usual, it's celebrating in style.

The Centennial State first joined the union on Aug. 1, 1876 thanks to Proclamation 230, which was signed by President Ulysses S. Grant. The state is named for the Colorado River, which got its name for the ruddy silt Spanish travelers saw in the water.

Colorado became a territory on Feb. 28. 1861, and has been inhabited by Native Americans for 13,000 years.

The U.S. Census Bureau estimates 5,456,574 people lived in Colorado as of July 1, 2015 an 8.5 percent increase since the 2010 census.

At 104,094 square miles, Colorado is the eighth largest state in terms of land but ranks 22nd in terms of population.

There are multiple events happening on Monday to celebrate Colorado's birthday, including free admission to state parks. You can find more information about that here: http://bit.ly/2aqw90p

In addition to offering free admission, History Colorado is also having multiple performers and exhibitors show off what exactly makes Colorado great: http://bit.ly/2ajYTGs

XXX-Files YouTube vlog #1 2016 Aug 01 Media (Nighthawk)

______________________________________________________________________________

**The theme music to the XXX-Files starts playing, before fading in to a red-head done up in dramatic make-up with a big smile and bigger boobs. The boobs are evident, because she's wearing a sheer black pegnoir over a black Merry Widow, lounging on a couch in front of a huge window, through which can be seen the Rocky Mountains.

      "Well, darlings, you asked for it, and you know I love to give you whatEVER you want. I'm here, in Pokoh's Peak, Colorado, and baby, this town is so full of weird shit, I'm surprised it's not featured in Ripley's!"

     The visual fades to a picture of the Trade Winds, and the redhead's voice can be heard purring, "Innocent coffee shop? HA! This coffee shop has been blown up TWICE in the past year, but each time it's been restored to look exactly the same as before. And the locals don't even seem to REALIZE."

     The screen flips to a recording of Drew sitting in the Trade Winds and looking surprised as he says, "Was out of town for a while, and didn't realize..." He looks around and looks confused as he says, "They really did make this place right back to how it was before, didn't they?"

     The visual flips back to the redhead leaning forward, with a salacious smile, her hands clasped in her lap to strategically block the crotch shot, since her legs are spread, while simultaneously pressing her breasts together. "Change-resistant conservatives or MALIGNANT FORCE, drawing disaster and death into its walls, maintaining it's domain unchanged? Waitstaff and patrons have died here, yet the locals don't seem to mind the cafe's unchanging reminder of their loss."

     *The screen flips to the famous face of Andrea Henderson, saying, "I was a waitress here before the explosion. I lost a couple of good friends that day."

     Zilla reappears in a dramatic explosion-style fade-in, with a shocked expression that could also be described as 'smile like a donut'. "Andrea Henderson?! Platinum selling pop star, here in small-town Colorado, working as a WAITRESS? There's definitely something about this cafe that's affecting the minds of the locals, and they don't seem even remotely concerned!"

     Andrea Henderson reappears, saying "Every day has something crazy going on. I'm pretty oblivious to it. I was in my own bubble, you know?" There are a couple of tiny hesitations that indicates a bit of vid-editing may have taken place on the text.

     Zilla reappears with a Harry-met-Sally expression on her face, as she moans, tossing her hair violently, "Ohhhh YES! I LOVE IT! In her own bubble, huh? Metaphor or ALIEN POD ABDUCTION with post-traumatic memory editing?!" She leans forward to the camera again, and murmurs, "You know I'm going to find out, because nothing gets me going like things that go BUMP," *hipthrust* "In the night. This is Zilla with the XXX-files. Follow me on Twitter, Facebook, and don't forget to tell me what you think of my lingerie in the comments!" A kiss is blown to the screen, and it goes black.

______________________________________________________________________________

     **The theme music to the XXX-files starts playing, before fading in to a redhead wearing an itty-bitty teeny-weeny pink polka-dot bikini. Hourglass figure is prominently displayed, as are a bright shiny pair of pink stilettos. She wags a finger, with an mock-scowl with pursed lips.

     "You naughty, NAUGHTY fans. Begging me to just wear my robe." The slow smile is pure tease, as she continues in a breathy voice. "But keep watching, and maybe ... just maybe, you'll get what you want. Because you know, that I know what you really ... REALLY... want."

     Andrea Henderson's face appears again, smiling as she looks at the camera, at an odd angle that is vaguely reminiscient of an upskirt shot. "I've seen a few of your vids."

     Zilla reappears as a small figure in her pink bikini at the bottom of the image with a pin-up style pose of 'oh my gosh!' "Andrea Henderson's a fan! OMGWTFBBQ" scrolls across the bottom in white text, before the screen goes back to watching Andrea's face. Zilla's voice in the background can be heard saying, "Really, you've never heard of all the weird shit going on here?" Andrea laughs, looking at the camera for a second, "Uh... I've never heard of any things like that. I don't even have any friends besides fellow waitresses. I think it could be amnesia. I think I'm just a boring girl, you know?" The audio text has those little flicks that hint at sound-editing within the sentences. Zilla reappears for a moment to whisper conspiratorially with a shocked expression on her face, "I KNOW, right? Andrea Henderson, three million Twitter followers, platinum superstar, contender for the America's sweetheart award, has been brain-washed somehow into thinking she has no friends, that she's boring, and a waitress?! Drugs? Sinister influence from the cafe? Brain damage from her tragic car crash a year ago? Blackmail from criminal elements, that she's hiding from?"

     Zilla's voice cuts in again. "So what's next for you?"

     "Maybe a Hooters?" says Andrea with a grin. "You know boys are dumb and they want to check out half-naked hot girls with a nice rack. You met Drew earlier. He was at my place last night. One of my favorite customers." More of those tiny blips, but every word is clearly Andrea's voice.

     Zilla reappears, fanning herself violently with a pink lacy fan, as she murmurs, "Sorry boys, the rest of that story is FAR too naughty to tell on YouTube." It blips back to Andrea saying, "Know what's the best part of living in Pokoh's Peak? No one knows who I am."

     Zilla reappears, laying on her stomach, legs crossed in the air behind her, breasts smooshed out on the ground in such a way that she looks completely naked. "What is she hiding from? Has Andrea gone full-Britney? Does she like being a servant? Does it fill some deep, masochistic need to be demeaned? And when she says favorite customer... well, darlings, we have to wonder, don't we? What could make a platinum superstar believe she's a waitress!? There is something in this town, darlings. Something affecting the people here, and I will get to the bottom of this!" A shot of Zilla facing away from the camera, as she smacks her voluptuous ass with a wink. "Because everyone knows how much I like bottoms! This is Zilla with the XXX-Files. Follow me on Twitter, Facebook, but not in real life, because that is STALKING, darlings. She blows a kiss to the screen, and it goes black. A subscribe button appears, dancing over what is most likely a picture of her cleavage. And Zilla's voice, husky, almost pleading, "Click my button... Please!"

***The theme music to the XXX-Files starts playing, before fading into the curvy redhead, wearing a painfully sheer white caftan in front of a bright light. Nothing obscene can be QUITE made out, but the lines of her body are VERY clear, as she's holding a flashlight onto her face, making it visible. Black glitter lipstick, and a gorgeous smokey eye.

     "BOO! Oh my ghost-loving ghoulfriends, you are going to LOVE this episode. So, I'm still in Pokoh's Peak, and I sought out an expert opinion on the supernatural. Now, I PROMISED not to reveal this source's name but, believe me when I say that any occult-groupie would squee! So /chew/ on that, while you listen.

      The screen goes dark, and a male voice can be heard, saying, "Are youu interested in such things? Are you interested in the truth?"

      A mini-Zilla appears in the corner, wearing a Britney-esque schoolgirl outfit and jumping up and down dangerously, clapping excitedly during the man's voice-over.

     Zilla's voice: "Of course! That's my entire life! And I have to say, the Trade Winds cafe? Strange, don't you think? That they've restored it PERFECTLY back to its original state twice? After being blown up?"

     The man's voice says, "You know the story of the original owners, don't you?"

      The schoolgirl Zilla is back, and makes a surprised face, before shaking her head, and leaning over, pantomiming holding a hand up to her ear during the man's question.

     Zilla's response, "No, I don't, could you tell me?"

     "Now, I am told that the owner, Lily Alexandra White-Singh, was connected to an ancient Indian death cult, through her mother's lineage. She reportedly carried a weapon with her at all times."

     Zilla's voice, breathy and excited, "An Indian death cult? Like the Kali worshippers?" A quick insert of the KALI-MA scene from Indiana Jones.

     Man's voice: "Exactly. Why do you think it blew up the second time? It was an assassination."

     Schoolgirl Zilla scrawls "Assassination?!" in comic sans across the screen and then pretends to faint.

     Zilla's voice, whispering: "An Assassination? It did fail, didn't it? The news didn't mention that she died."

      The man's voice, the sound of cards shuffling in the background: 'Who said it failed? Maybe there's a reason the place always looks the same? Maybe it still has the same owner."

     Schoolgirl Zilla, pops her head up, with a confused, 'What you talkin' 'bout Willis!' face.

     Zilla: "Are you saying she survived an explosion that destroyed a building?"

     The man's voice. "No. She didn't survive. But the dead don't like change."

     Schoolgirl Zilla saunters out in a different-but-equally-skimpy schoolgirl outfit, and then is chased off-screen by a digital ghost.

     Zilla: "That explains a lot. How do you know her spirit is there? Have you heard about ghost sightings or hauntings?"

     The man's voice: "I have. People come and talk to me about ghost sightings all the time." Schoolgirl Zilla runs across the screen holding her old uniform, in a white bra and lacy panties, while a now-group of ghosts is chasing her.

     Zilla's voice: "Would you say Pokoh's Peak has a higher than average infestation of spirits?" More ghosts start popping into view on the screen, like someone hitting copy-paste many times.

     Man's voice: "No, I would not. Pokoh's Peak has an average population of spirits. Spirits come in all shapes and sizes." Zilla runs out in what has to be a "Sexy Ghostbuster" halloween costume, and the ghosts start disappearing like popping bubbles as green lines appear next to the words "Pew Pew!"

     Zilla reappears full-size in her original schoolgirl costume, which has been strategically torn and ripped into JUUUUST this side of indecency, chest heaving excitedly, as she says, "I knew it! That freaky cafe was owned by a death-worshipper, who was murdered, but is still tied to the place! The cafe haunted and guarded by her spirit, locked into an unchanging design by a malevolent spirit! Obviously confusing the locals with some sort of mind-fogging ectoplasmic ability, to the point that even Andrea Henderson no longer remembers who she is? Or the other patrons? None of whom seem to realize that their very minds are being affected! Well now, my dears, that's why I'm a Starbucks girl. No death cults haunting that kind of soulless corporate entity!"

     Zilla reappears, obviously naked behind three strategically-clutched schoolbooks, as she says, "And that's ONLY THE BEGINNING! Stay tuned darlings, I have not yet begun to hunt!" She blows a kiss, the books begin to slip dangerously, and the screen goes black, as the sound of books falling can be heard, with a small 'OW!'. Ghosts drag "Follow me on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram! And don't forget to subscribe. You know how much I love it when you stroke my button!" The subscribe button dances like an effective censor bar across a torso shot of a topless Zilla.

     ***The theme music to the XXX-Files starts playing before Zilla appears, dressed all in red, from a teeny bikini with sequined stilettos to the lipstick and horns on her head. A background of flames roars behind her.

     "This one is going to be a HOT one, my little fan-zillas! And, we have one of YOU to thank for the tip!" She winks and brings a finger to her lips, "Now, of course we agreed to keep their identity secret, because we all know what the government does to keep its cover-ups, don't we darlings, but I verified their identity and bonafides."

     A mini-Zilla dressed as a stern secretary appears in a pop-up bubble in the lower right corner. She inspects some papers with a giant magnifying glass, before stamping them CERTIFIED. The bubble pops and disappears.

     Devil Zilla appears in front of a chalk board, holding a riding crop. She whacks the board, and the words "SPONTANEOUS COMBUSTION" flame into existence on the board. She makes a throaty sound of pleasure, before saying, "MMPH! Oh you KNOW what gets me hot and bothered. Inexplicable, unexpected, and SUPER-FREAKY. Now some people like to blame methane or flammable materials, but--" Zilla looks from side to side, before waving the camera closer and closer, until it's a close-up of her glittery red lips as she whispers, "I'm guessing -- VAMPIRE!" And she smiles, revealing a pair of white plastic fangs. The camera zooms back out, and Zilla is now dressed in 'seductive vampiress!' costume. Lacy revealing black dress, lots of leather and bat motifs.

     "Vot?! You say you do not be-lieeeve me? Fine. ZEE EVIDENCE!"

     The riding crop whacks the board, which erases itself, and scribbles "Louis Bennett" on the board. "Allow me to introduce you to Louis Bennett!" Several pictures of the man appear on the board. "Looks like a nice normal guy. Probably likes sweater vests and tweed, yes? HA!" An invisible red marker draws fangs and mean eyebrows on Louis' picture.

     "Apparently vampires are still catching up to modern society, because no one told Louis to look both ways before crossing the street. He was run over by a car!"

     A gif of Dracula facepalming appears for a second.

     Zilla is reading from the Pokoh's Peak newspaper, a copy of the story displayed on the screen prominently. (+bbread 7/11) "He was brought into the Pokoh's Peak ER -- but why hear what the papers told everyone! Let's hear from my super-fan who SAW the whole thing. Speak, daahlink!"

     A figure completely hidden in shadow speaks, the voice obviously run through several distortions. "When the EMTs brought him in, it was just after morning shift change. They said he'd been hit by a car. He had multiple fractures to the ribs, legs, and one arm, as well as trauma to the head and neck. We were having a hard time getting readings. It was so strange! His heart rate would be there one minute, and gone the next, and changing the leads didn't help! We knew it wasn't the equipment because the EMTs had the same trouble on the ambulance. His temperature also dropped a couple times. Like, he just went -cold-, and then warmed up again! Weirdest thing I've ever seen! He was conscious though, even when he was cold or had no heartbeat. After we couldn't get him stable in the ER, we put him on a gurney and started to transport him. There wasn't any smell of gasoline or anything. No one had a lighter. The corridor was obviously empty with the amount of light coming in through the windows!"

     Zilla reappears, eating popcorn with rapt attention. "Don't stop! Don't stop darlink! Please!"

     The shadowy figure resumes, but now there appears to be some distress. "Well, there wasn't any rise in temperature, but hi-his face and arms just ... ignited! And he started screaming, and thrashing but, he couldn't really move with the damage to his limbs. I--Someone grabbed the fire extinguisher, and sprayed it all over him, but it didn't help! He was on fire, and trying to put the flames out with the sheet he was under, but nothing helped! He just kept burning. Within minutes .

He kept burning for another ten minutes, until the flames stopped. All that was left was a pile of ashes in the warped part of the gurney."

     Zilla reappears holding a checklist. "Was there oxygen present?"

     The figure nodded, "Yes, but all oxygen tanks come with a shut-off. We hit that first thing, and pulled it away. It had nothing to do with the fire."

     Zilla makes a big red X.

     "Any flammable fluids present?"

     The figure shakes its head. "No. That's what they tried to tell us later, that maybe he'd been doused in gasoline from the car that ran over him, but there was no gasoline smell. Even the ... the smoke didn't smell like gasoline burning."

     Zilla makes another big X. "Any electric current present?"

     The figure shrugs. "Just the leads, but those were monitoring, not delivering current."

     Zilla makes another red X, and an error horn honks obnoxiously.

     "Well, that seems pretty clear, doesn't it? You wheeled him into the bright sun-lit corridor, and FWOOSH, he combusted!" She turns to look up into the camera with a mock-chastising face (and a lot of cleavage), "Let this be a lesson to you, bloodsuckers. Always look both ways before crossing the street." She blows a big kiss to the camera, "MWAH!"

     Little bats drag the standard "Follow me on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram! New pin-ups in the store! Don't forget to subscribe!" banner across the screen. Another bat is following them, carrying a bra. Zilla chases it across screen, yelling and waving a broom with one hand, the other clutching her breasts for modesty. And safety because those things bouncing could hurt someone.

Sacred Heart gets new tenant 2016 Aug 10 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

August 11, 2016 Pokoh'S Peak Times - The Denver Archdiocese today announced that the vacant Convent of the Sacred Heart will be converted into a ministry building for the Opus Dei, a laymen organization dedicated to helping normal people live 'within the bounds of Catholicism and in the love of Christ". The building, fully renovated after last year's unpleasantness, is ready for habitation.

The promotional release indicated that Father Enrique Silva Padilla, a protg of the former Auxiliary Bishop of Denver and current Archbishop of Los Angeles, Jose Horacio Gomez, has been named to the facility. It will act as a conference and meeting area for the Opus Dei and other archdiocese organizations, as well as a retreat for contemplation, being situated on beautiful Genesee Mountain. Father Enrique responded to a telephone call by saying "There's a lot of work to be done, but we rejoice in receiving a place of peace and contemplation in the environment that God has granted us." Father Enrique will be housed full time at the convent, as well as those who wish to use the dormitory for retreats, will help restore the convent to a more "sunny and joyous place."

Press Release-Kendrick 2016 Aug 11 Media (Nighthawk)

______________________________________________________________________________

*Press Release posted on local stations which quickly spreads in various mediums nationally and internationally.*

A female reporter's voice says, "Today, Calliope Kendrick stepped into the limelight again under circumstances which have many questioning what's happened to the heiress in the past 4 months. Let's hear her explanation of the events."

The scene shifts to a small conference room, where Cali confidently stands behind a podium. "I know you may have questions, but this is a statement only at this time. I hope you'll understand."

Cali focuses on the podium top and its obvious she is reading as the sound of cameras snapping can be heard.

"I know many of you have a lot of questions involving the crash that took place four months ago. As you can see, Yes, I am alive and well. First and foremost I will go on record saying: No, I did not stage my own death. This was the doing of a mentally unsound mind. The one who staged my death and kidnapped me did so out of a misguided notion of protecting me. In their state at the time they thought locking me away would be the best way to keep me safe from the world around me."

"After months of being locked away," she pauses, taking a breath before continuing, "I was able to make my escape where I slipped away from where I was being held. With the help of some locals, I was able to make it to an embassy. I was able to contact some friends to return me home. My fiance and I did not think it wise to announce my return until the one responsible for my capture and staged death was apprehended. We have been given word from Jules Sergio, this person is currently in treatment for their mental health. My fiance and I had contacted Sergio in hopes to get him to convince his client to go public with his wrong doing and we were assured it would be taken care of. His client, my father Reginald Kendrick, is the one responsible for my kidnapping and detainment against my will. I am not interested in pursuing charges against him at this time; it is my only hope that he receives the treatment he needs, and that he will be well again soon. Thank you."

The feed cuts back to the reporter, as Cali leaves the room, taking no questions. "So it appears her /father/, CEO of Kendrick Enterprises, is being accused by Ms Kendrick of kidnapping and unlawful detainment, although..in her words..she is not pressing charges. We have been unable to reach Mr. Kendrick for comment. More as we get information on this situation. Back to you, John."

      ***The theme music to the XXX-Files starts playing, before it screeches mid-tune, and Zilla appears for a moment, dressed as the nurse Hugh Hefner would hire. "It's come to my attention, that some of you have been suffering medical problems while watching my show." She holds up a piece of paper, and reads, "If you find yourself suffering an erection lasting more than four hours, try using more lube. Don't take performance-enhancing drugs before watching my shows. If you have a weak constitution, blood-pressure problems, or marital issues due to being unable to get it up without thinking of my amazing boobs, stop watching my show and get professional help instead of trying to sue me. 'Kay? 'Kay."

      The theme music starts playing again, as a black screen of tiny text appears, reading "Nothing stated, implied, or expressed on the XXX-Files should be substituted for medical, legal, or psychiatric advice" in four paragraphs of legalese.

      Zilla appears, lounging in a beach chair and fanning herself with a black lace fan. She's wearing a sheer yellow peignoir over a bumble-bee striped baby-doll, where the black bits are opaque and the yellow bits aren't, with a black floppy hat and sunglasses. The opaque bits are barely long enough to ensure YouTube regulation compliance.

      "My dears, it is HOT here in Colorado! The tiniest little exertion, and I'm all moist and sticky! But, that doesn't mean I'm not a busy little bee on your beee-halfs! In fact, I've been so busy that I've got new Fib-BEE friends!"

      A shot of a black government vehicle, with a man and woman inside. Close-ups of the man and woman, enhanced pop up. "Aren't they ADORABLE? I really must be onto something interesting, if the government is watching my show too. Hiiiii!!"

      Zilla appears in the bottom corner and brushes away the picture which disintegrates and blows away. "But you're not here for blatant government overreach and invasion of privacy, are you, darlings. You're here for exposure," she starts to lift the hem of her baby doll, teasingly, before adding cheerfully, "Of the strange, occult, and uncanny!"

      A picture of the Helping Hands Homeless shelter appears, taking around dusk, allowing for odd shadows to stretch forth ominously. "For a homeless shelter, it sure makes the news regularly for .. odd happenings. Like a sudden rat infestation that disappeared without being treated by any of the local pest removal services. And ridiculous expensive gifts. And odd ritual dances. Now, I'm not saying it's aliens.." Zilla makes the now-famous meme face.

      "But it is TOTALLY aliens! Two years ago, they had a massive infestation of rats." Pictures from the Pokoh Peak news article showing the infestation appear. "I spoke to every pest-control service in the city." A list of them appears, and Zilla presses a button on a remote control. One by one, "No, we didn't treat it. Don't know who did, either." "Nope. Wasn't us." "Nah, we'd remember that. Never seen a rat infestation like those pictures." And each name gets a red x stamped on it.

      Zilla returns, wearing an extremely skimpy safari outfit and holding a net. "But, would they go away on their own?"

      Again the names of the exterminators, and the sound segments, "Nope." "You kidding? That's rat paradise there." "I'd be damn surprised. Especially with winter comin'."

      Zilla grins at the camera. "So, this homeless shelter is infested with rats. Then, all of a sudden it's not! This kind of sudden infestation/de-infestation? Is extremely unusual. So, did someone CALL those rats? Were they responding to some sort of unknown signal? Some otherworldly influence?"

      Zilla winks, "And it's not just strange animal behaviors. This particular homeless shelter has issues with strange beings showing up and doing inexplicable things. Like the strange being who gave away twenty to thirty blankets worth /thousands/ of dollars. That's a solid estimate, by the way, for a solid-silk handwoven blanket. Nearer ten thousand given the two months of weaving work estimated per blanket. When asked to describe the person who gave them such a luxurious gift? They said his features kept changing, like they couldn't decide what they were supposed to be. Now, if I had two hundred thousand dollars and wanted to help the homeless? I think I could come up with something better than twenty blankets."

      A screen appears titled, "ALIEN REPORTS", with a list of dates and quotes from people who claimed to see aliens, saying things like, 'I couldn't tell what they looked like,' 'their face was sort of ... shifting' 'it was like staring at a face made of silly putty'. Zilla reappears, with a wide smile, and a futuristic sexpot suit made of silver lame, holding a silver "ray-gun". "But there's so much more I have to tell you! And darlings, believe me, when I say, you'll want to tune in for part two!

      She shoots the ray gun at the screen and it dissolves into a black screen where a parade of tiny green aliens marches into view. They're carrying off a tied-up Zilla, like ants in cartoon picnics, as she's struggling and writhing against a lot of ropes. The last alien drags across the standard "Subscribe!" message.

3 killed in violent street fight 2016 Aug 16 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

Wednesday, August 17, 2016 - Pokoh's Peak Times - Three people are dead in a spasm of gunfire and violence in the 700 block of River Road Tuesday night. Officers responded to reports of a man firing an automatic weapon and a flamethrower at three teenage girls in the alley between Fergus Thrift Shop and a private residence. The man was then killed by another woman who cut off his head with an axe. Police are unclear as to the cause of the attack, but there are several possibilities.

The man, identified as Vincent Antonio Pantusso, of Kansas City, Kansas, was witnessed as coming out of his vehicle and approaching the three women without speaking, and began firing his Heckler & Koch submachine gun directly at the women. Since the woman, supposedly underaged prostitutes, were in the alley, no one knows the results of the first volley. Pantusso dropped his submachinegun, and began to burn them with a restored Word War II era M2 flamethrower. Two of the girls were killed, and their identities have yet to be made. However, as Pantusso was directing the flames at the three women, one woman dropped off the roof of a nearby building across the street, a three family unit at 708 River Road, and tried to shoot him. A red Toyota truck tried to run Pantusso over, and then yet another woman dressed in a swimsuit walked up behind him and struck his head off with an axe. At that point, everyone fled the scene until police arrived.

Police insiders speculate that this was an organized crime turf war, or Mr. Pantusso was a violent misogynist. These same insiders lean to the first issue, since Mr. Pantusso drove all the way from Kansas City. Inquiries have been made to Kansas.

***The theme music to the XXX-Files starts playing, as a black screen of tiny text appears, reading "Nothing stated, implied, or expressed on the XXX-Files should be substituted for medical, legal, or psychiatric advice" in four paragraphs of legalese.

      Zilla appears, in her futuristic sexpot suit made of silver lame, doodlebob antenna bouncing on her head, sitting in a generic space-ship captain's chair.

      "Full speed ahead, and damn those big, throbbing censor-torpedoes! The set rocks, as if hit by an explosion, and Zilla moans, gripping her chair tightly, "Oh.. yes... YES! More!" Another explosion and Zilla's O-face appears on full display, as she whips her head around, screaming, "OH GOD, YES! YES RIGHT THERE!" A computer screen with a pixel face fills the screen, and says emotionlessly, "Shields are down. And soggy. Prepare to be boarded."

      Zilla reappears, holding a small pink glowstick up as she appears to be hiding in a small cabinet, holding a finger to her lips. She stage-whispers, "So, let's talk aliens."

      The screen flicks back to a picture of the Helping Hands Homeless Shelter, and space-girl Zilla appears in miniature in a corner bubble. "So, we've got inexplicable animal swarming, and a being with a constantly shifting face." The two appear as bullet points over the shelter as she speaks. "But wait, there's MORE! Like, inexplicable memory loss occuring in the area around the shelter, and cellular interference. Watch this."

      A clip of Zilla walking down the street, unedited, wearing a white wife-beater and jeans, and appears to be general recording, as she's saying, "So, I'm heading down to the shelter to talk to---" And the recording abruptly cuts off. Zilla returns. "I checked the phone logs. My phone disappeared entirely from the grid ten minutes after I lost signal." A display of cellular tracking is shown, where it stops abruptly. "The battery was full, and if it was stolen, whoever took it never used it. But my phone is constantly streaming video. Even if stolen, it still should have been uploading files from the moment it was taken. But this? This dead stop? Shouldn't happen. I can't remember anything from that exact moment, for the next hour, when I woke up in the seedy bar next door. But when I talked to a local doctor, he told me that it wasn't the first case of strange memory loss he'd encountered recently."

      Zilla reappears, "So, I got a new phone, and I went back. I met a local there, Dr. Hollar Phillips, a noted local paranormal afficionado, and here's what he had to say."

      Hollar appears on the video, with the homeless shelter in the background, as he says, "I would leave the Homeless shelter alone. There is a known gang there tends to be a bit sensitive about stories published."

      Zilla reappears full screen. "A ... gang? Running a HOMELESS shelter?" A little cartoon UFO hot-rodded out like gangbangers cars goes zooming across the screen with little green men wearing bandanas in it.

      Hollar reappears, "Not running but claiming it... They make sure the homeless isn't messed with or highlighted. Since the fire last year they were a bit peeved. Hell, I and a bunch of people had to rent homes to keep them out from the cold."

      Zilla reappears, saying, "Interesting phrasing, eh? THEY were a bit peeved. People had to rent homes because this unnamed gang was angry at their facility being burned?" The screen flips back to Hollar's face, as Zilla asks, "Why do they want to protect the homeless? Are they doing experiments or something that couldn't bear scrutiny?"

      Hollar shrugs, "I don't know much about the gang but there is one." He says, "They just look after the homeless, not much paranormal stuff about it."

      Zilla's voice. "So the homeless population, no reports of odd sights or issues? It says in the newspaper that there were allegations of abuse against the staff during the rat infestation. What kind of abuse do you think they were talking about?"

      Hollar tilts his head, "Homeless people claim to see stuff all the time...That's about the only connection."

      Zilla reappears, still in her Space-slut suit, as she says, "Really? Claiming to see things like a mysterious dance troup that came in, performed a ritual dance, and left, and no one afterwards could identify the dancers or say that they knew the troupe were coming to perform that day? Interesting that the one population "claimed" by this mysterious "gang" seems to be the one least likely to either seek help from the authorities, or be believed by them, even if they do. Coincidence? We don't believe in coincidence, here at the XXX-Files."

      Zilla reappears, posing on a rocket placed predictably between her legs in a pic very reminiscient of WW2 pinups. "Stay tuned darlings. I have SO MUCH MORE to tell you about. Like a man who genuinedly experienced the impossible. Next time, on the XXX-Files!" The rocket starts shaking, and as Little 2D Men in Black come chasing her, (with the faces of the FBI agents she mentioned last show pasted in), the rocket blasts off, incinerating the men in black, as Zilla squeals happily on top. The camera moves forward, and tilts to look down at the ash-piles, which read "Subscribe for more HOT NEWS"

Gangland Violence on Commanche 2016 Aug 22 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

Monday, August 22, 2016 - Police released details today of the killing of two young men on Commanche St in the rear parking lot of the Rainbow Motel. Late Thursday morning, an unknown assailant assaulted Ricardo Perez Sanchez, 27, Henry Joseph Hall, 24, and Steven Edward Young, 23, who was engaged in the distribution of controlled substances. A firefight broke out, and Perez Sanchez was run over by a vehicle and Hall was shot to death. Young, who drove the vehicle over his friend, was admitted to Pokoh's Peak General Hospital with a large wound. While he was originally treated by a trauma doctor, his prognosis is that he will survive.

Police are on the lookout for a tall African American male with dreadlocks and a mustache, who is known to be wearing a dark leather jacket. He is armed and considered very dangerous. Anyone with information regarding the assailant should contact Detective Sergeant Carl Smith, at PPPD headquarters.

Gang Assassination 2016 Aug 22 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

Monday, August 22, 2016 - In a possibly related murder to the earlier gangland violence, Steven Arik Johnson, of the 400 block of Shadow Street, was assassinated in the driveway of his home by an assailant not more than an hour after the Rainbow Motel killings. Police say that his pregnant girlfriend was watching from the kitchen window when Mr. Jackson unlocked his vehicle and prepared to enter, when a small man wearing a large black hat rose and shot him in the back of the head. Jackson, 25, was killed instantly. Johnson was a known member of the national gang of the Crips, but had resided in Pokoh's Peak for sixteen years. Any guesses at motive would be pure speculation, but police insiders believe it was due to his gang affiliation.

Friday, August 26, 2017 - Pokoh's Peak, CO - Police were called to a duplex on Shipley St near River Road for another homicide, this one involving Charles Henry Martin, 31, of the 8000 block of Shipley St. Mr. Martin apparently was returning home late at night and was shot on his front covered porch by his assailant in the back of the head. A neighbor heard the gun shot, but by the time he went to his window, he could not see the person who killed Martin. Police sources say that Martin had on him $2,000 in cash, and 8 grams of refined heroin, with a street value of $1600, packaged for sale. No leads have been established, as Mr. Martin's own camera security system had been disabled before the incident. Martin's family lives in Saint Louis, but he has resided in Pokoh's Peak for five years.

August 29, 2016 - Pokoh's Peak Times - Another night, another killing of citizens thought to be involved in the drug distribution racket. Thomas Jose "Tommy" White, 29, of 1714 Cottage St, was gunned down by assailants just outside his mother's house early Sunday morningt. Also slain was his friend and what the neighborhood described as his bodyguard, Jason Matthew Green, 23, of the 2000 block of Shadow St. While witnesses have not been forthcoming, traffic light video shows that White and Green rode up to the house, and was attacked from an assailant waiting in the porch area, while two others hid behind parked cars. Police sources say they have a lead, but declined to comment on what that lead could be.

Midge White, 54, the mother of Tommy White, was consoled by community activist Lawrence Nelson, who noted that in the last two weeks African American men had been gunned down in front of their homes, and the police seemed to be unable or unwilling to act. "You aren't telling me that if these were white men, they would be burning down the city to find them.

2 dead, 2 wounded in Labor Day amb 2016 Sep 05 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

Tuesday, September 6, 2016 - Pokoh's Peak Times- Labor Day started off with an attack on a suspected drug house on Crittenden St just south of St John's Church, when in the early hours of Monday a lone gunman entered the second floor property at 1825 Crittenden St and from the porch, shot and killed James Wilson, 31. His associates began to return fire, including from a submachinegun. Jerry Dennis Phillips, 29, was killed by the assailant by having his throat cut by a long blade - from witness reports, he was the one firing the 9mm mini Uzi. Walter Patrick Evans, 27 was admitted to the hospital with stab wounds in the chest and throat. His condition is listed as critical. Peter Harold Turner, 25, of Denver, was admitted as well in stable condition, as he was found unconscious on the ground with a broken right arm, right leg and several ribs, and a concussion. Wilson, Phillips and Evans were from Pokoh's Peak.

A Times reporter had a chance to speak to Turner before he was put into the intensive care unit. Mr. Turner, who's criminal past includes petty theft and drug distribution, opined that the assailant was "A white (expletive) with one a funky big hat and a priest's collar" was obviously there to kill Wilson, who was described by Turner as "the boss". Turner says that after shooting Wilson he engaged the other three, pushing Turner so hard that he fell fifteen feet from the house unto the gravel and hardpacked dirt driveway. Police sources confirm his account about where he was found, and said that had an eyewitness to Turner's fall, but not to any of the other activity during the incident. This is considered related to the other homicides that have started since mid-August.

Moss had been missing for some time, although the Jefferson County sheriff's department has no indication why Moss was at that particular place. Friends said that Moss was interested in the paranormal, and there were indications that Moss had gone to the derelict building since local rumors say it is haunted by a supernatural force. However, police sources say most likely, Moss fell down the stairs and his body had been worried by wild animals over the time that the corpse remained in the house.

Massive Shoot Out and Fire on TV 2016 Sep 06 Media (Gyrfalcon)

Wednesday evening, September 7, local news is saturated with a coverage of the burning of a three-story row home on Fremont Circle, in the central business district. Pictures are carried by local and national media, showing the brownstone burning, and eventually an unmarked helicopter landing on the roof, and spiriting seven people away. The people were all armed with assault rifles and were wearing Donald Trump Halloween-type masks. The newscasters say that the house, 5 Fremont Circle, was the residence of a wealthy investment banker, Mark Reynolds LeSeur VI, who has an office in Denver. A dozen or so masked individuals broke into the house at 3:10 in the afternoon, set fire to the lower floors, ostensibly to prevent the police from interfering, and then escaped via helicopter. There is only one reported injury outside the building (several really great shots of Chester Pearson performing medical procedures on a wounded young woman, with an RRT officer and a uniform police officer, hiding behind a squad car), the death toll inside has yet to be determined. The coverage lasts until 2 am,

______________________________________________________________________________

Sunday, September 18, 2016 - Pokoh's Peak Times, evening edition - Two widespread incidents of murder and destruction hit the town in the latest incident of violence. Two PPPD officers, Nicholas Roy Myers, 33 and Benjamin Bruce Long, 27, were ambushed and killed on Chinook Street last night at around 10pm, responding to a report of gunshots at 27 Chinook St. Meyers, a 15-year veteran, and Long, who has been with the force for three years, were shot to death in their car as they moved westbound on the street. Forensic specialists found they had not even drew their sidearms. Inside the house, owned by a private consortium, found seven bodies, and hundreds of rounds of spent ammunition and assault rifles. PPPD detectives, with the help of the FBI, are investigating.

Meanwhile, at the club Eclipse in the old Torne industries building, a dozen armed men barged in during the height of the business on Saturday night, a security guard, and demanded the location of local Andre Jacobs. When Brandon Foster, manager of the club, approached them and told them Jacobs was not there, the leader of the invaders cut Foster's throat, and in a bizarre ceremony, drank the blood in front of dozens of horrified club growers. The man shouted "Here endeth the lesson, Teen Wolf" and fled before police vehicles could respond. The FBI has also been asked to aid in this case.

The Pokoh's Peak Times and our sister television station, KJCW Channel 9, will soon be launching a multi part series examining the spate of violence in the county and Denver, and its local roots, and what can be done about it. The first installment will be shown on KJCW, and hosted by news anchor Charlene Gray.

PPPD officers missing after crash 2016 Sep 21 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

Thursday, September 21, 2016 - Pokoh's Peak Times - Two PPPD officers are missing after their crashed vehicle was found abandoned off of Sibley Street near the airport. Russell Victor Sanders, 38 and Sandra Donna Ross, 32, was not located after their Dodge Charger was found crashed into the derelict P T Powell Refrigeration Manufacturing plant on Wednesday morning. The two officers, both with the department for over ten years, had last checked in at 2 am Tuesday morning on routine patrol. When they were noticed overdue, it took ten hours to locate the crashed vehicle. Detective Richard Secor, who is heading the investigation, notes that he is certain foul play is involved. "The vehicle was stripped of everything - firearms, medical kits, even the computer ripped from the dashboard".

(PICTURE: A blue and white 2015 Dodge Charger with a gold stripe that is the colors of the PPPD sits smashed against the old 1920s brick wall of an old-fashioned factory. The windshield has blood stains on it from impact. The front door on the driver's side is missing, and there's ancillary damage to the rest of the vehicle. Police officers stand around, looking uptight, while you can see the backs of two people with FBI in yellow on their windbreakers. CAPTION: The vehicle was found at 7:30pm by other officers. No sign of the two officers were present).

Chief "Smokey" Johnson announced an award of $10,000 for any information regarding the missing officers, donated from the Police Union's Emergency Fund. Detective Secor gave a number (413-243-7773 or 413 -AID-PPPD) for the hotline that has been opened at headquarters. Police insiders say that there is great concern that police morale is plummeting again, and the chief and the union want to make sure that Ross and Sanders get back safely.

On a black screen: In conjunction with the NewsMedia Group and Fox News-

"Searchers after horror haunt strange, far places." - H.P. Lovecraft

Fade in: A picture of the Boxon Mountain quarry, and a KJCW reporter, Martin Sullivan is reporting in the mid-morning sun. The Caption reads "May 25th, 2014"

Sullivan: "In this out of the way quarry, on the Denver side of Boxon Mountain, a grisly find in what seems to be a run of the mill drug case. Investigators of the attack on Boxon Mountain Quarry have discovered multiple corpses underneath the burned out building on the quarry grounds. Investigators say those bodies may have been there for years."

(Sullivan turns and approaches a detective (those who have met Derrick Ward of the Jefferson County Sheriff's Department will recognize him, but he is not identified in the video)) "Detective, Detective, what do you think is going on here?!"

Detective: "Since we discovered this six hours ago, we have no idea. Probably a dump ground for cartel work."

Fade out, and now a picture of Boxon Mountain from the west side in the distance. The camera zooms back and pans to Charlene Gray, news reader for KJCW.

Gray: "And so started a two year spiral for the Front Range, with mysterious killings and explosions, which involved four police agencies and the governors. In this special series funded by the NewsMediaGroup, and NewsCorp, we'll trace the descent of this once peaceful area of natural beauty and resources and conservative population into the violent pit it has become."

Missing Boy Found 2016 Sep 23 Media (Kestrel)

______________________________________________________________________________

Young Andrew Robins, who disappeared from his home 3 years ago, was dropped off at the Colorado Springs Fire Department. The boy was 10 years old at the time of his disappearance and so far as doctors can tell, he still is. The story he told the firemen before collapsing was all but incoherent, suggesting abuse and some sort of experimental science or drugs that cuased him to hallucinate heavily. He then fell into a coma that the doctors have been unable to explain.

The boy's parents are very worried but are just happy to have their son back. They have asked that all questions be directed to the family lawyers at Drew, Martel and Hendle in Colorado Springs. Questions remain as to where the boy has been and what sort of experiments might have been done on him to prevent his aging.

Friday afternoon protest turns vio 2016 Sep 23 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

KJCW segment on the evening news, Saturday, September 24th - A throng of neighborhood people and Evangelical Christian activists from the Soldiers of Gethsemane Church protested the operation of Mark's Showplace today, originally with chanting and signs, but eventually the protest turned ugly. Members of the Soldiers of Gethsemane Church, led by their controversial pastor, Bobby Barnes, were caught on security video taking up loose stones from a nearby alley and causing damage to the windows and signs of Mark's Showplace. The erotic entertainment business was shut down, and six people were arrested. Reverend Barnes, who while picked up a stone, did not throw it, was not arrested but spoke to our reporter:

(Bobby Barnes is in his mid forties, with a mullet and a horseshoe mustache that is well trimmed, but shows flecks of gray in the sandy blonde hair. He wears a blue and white striped shirt, and as he speaks, he has a Bible in one hand).

"I'll admit, we got carried away. My flock got carried away, but can you blame them? A place where woman lewdly dance for money. Who knows if they do it because they are forced by those followers of the devil, or because they are followers of the Prince of Filth themselves? We allow this sin, this hypocrisy, this desecration to continue in the name of free speech, and force those God fearin' people to watch this as they live their lives. I picked this rock to speak of St Peter, upon the Lord Jesus was going to build his church upon. They saw me pick it up, and carried away in their anger at wickedness, broke the law. We will meekly abide the justice of the courts - but make no mistake - we will burn the sin from Jefferson County! Believe in that!"

Authorities say the rioters did $10,000 of damage to the establishment, and it will be closed for at least three weeks for repairs.

Saturday, September 24th - Pokoh's Peak Times - The Jefferson County Sheriff's department is investigating the brutal slaying of a family of four in Indian Hills, in the central part of the county. The Fisher family, Victor, 36, Carol, 34, and their two children, Ruth, 9 and Sharon, 7 were found by their Victor Fisher's brother Martin Fisher, when he came over to watch Stranger Things on Netflix. Mr. Fisher had what doctors are calling a "cardiac event" and was hospitalized in Pokoh's Peak General Hospital today.

Sheriff Shrader declined to comment as it is an ongoing investigation, but police sources say that they have no motive for the gruesome crime. No valuable were taken and no indications of forced entry. The source concluded that "There was more than one - it's like the (expletive) Manson family." The funerals have yet to be determined for the family.

Local arrested on homicide/drug ch 2016 Sep 26 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

Tuesday, September 27, 2016 - Pokoh's Peak Times - The FBI and Jefferson County Sheriff's Department announced this morning that they had arrested Samuel Carbuncle IV, 50, pf Pokoh's Peak and charged with attempt to distribute narcotics, and accessory to homicide and held on $500,000 bail. FBI agents, led by Jack Radtke, of the Special Administrative Investigation Division, arrested Mr. Carbuncle while he was residing in an RV outside the Mountaineer Resort. Mr. Carbuncle was held in the secure facility at the FBI in Denver.

(Picture:A brown 2014 Honda Odyssey is parked in the Mountaineer parking lot. The driver's side window is smashed to bits, and the front windshield is coated with blood. Caption: The murder victim was found in this vehicle as the FBI arrived early Sunday morning)

Agent Radtke spoke to reporters, saying that there was a major drug deal occurring at the Mountaineer, and one of the participants was slain due to misidentification. No details on who was killed was released. However, Agent Radtke believes that one group was out of state from Louisiana, making this an FBI case. As an aside, Agent Radtke said he believes that Mr. Carbuncle was not involved in the homicide, but was part of the transaction, so he is being charged as an accessory.

     "Suicides appear to be on the rise in Pokoh's Peak. Over the last several months, suicides have gone up three percent for this time of year. In a surprisingly large number of cases, people have described their loved ones as being happy, content or having recently found something that brought them out of a previous slump only to have suddenly slid back into crippling depression.

Gray: Father Peter Earl Daratsos was a Greek American who had heard the call of the Church from his early days. People remember him as engaging and energetic, always reaching out to those in need. They also remember his zeal regarding his faith, and how he thought that he scourge of drugs had destroyed peoples lives. Active in attempting to rehabilitate those addicted to the surge of cocaine in the 1980s, he was also known to be difficult, confronting local pushers and berating police officers for not doing more.

(a picture of Father Daratsos, upon his appointment to the clergy)

Gray: In the summer of 1985, he disappeared.

(the picture fades out)

Gray: This servant of the community had vanished and any investigation turned up no leads. While his vehicle was found in a park in west Denver, rumors abounded that no nonsense thugs from Los Angeles had took exceptions to his crusade. The mystery continued, until May of 2014 when his mummified body was found on Boxon Mountain.

(the video from the first episode)

Gray: Police sources at the time postulated a lot of different theories - that the quarry was being used unknowingly for dumping of the bodies for thirty years by the new masters of the drug trade, the Crips from Los Angeles. The attack on the mountain was not an attack - CBI Agent Devin Williams, assigned to the case for his reputation and forensic expertise, mentioned that it was a deal that had gone bad, on private property. However, Agent Williams was removed due to bureaucratic issues, and was disappeared himself months later.

Gray: It could have been forgotten, but then in the winter of that year, during the high tide of the ski season, more violence appeared, directly related to the drug trade. A Denver County Parks worker, slain after alledgedly witnessing a drug transaction, a mule for the Los Angeles connection, somehow stuck in the sewer pipe at Shadow and Comanche, a series of violent murders on Pokoh's Parkway, with a warning against a group called the Dreamers.

Missing Man Possible Victim 2016 Oct 03 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

October 3, 2016 - Pokoh's Peak Times - A man missing for over a week is most likely a victim of foul play, despite being a registered sex offender. Todd Jesse Ortiz, 23, of the 1400 block of Shadow St, was last seen two weeks ago by his parole officer during his weekly meeting. After he missed his second weekly meeting with his parole officer, PPPD officers were detailed to his home, which was burglarized and signs of a struggle were evident. Police investigation concluded that several witnesses saw Mr. Ortiz being dragged from his apartment by a woman with a sidearm, but no one attempted to stop the assailant as Mr. Ortiz was known to be a registered sex offender.

Mr. Ortiz was convicted six years ago for using Rohypnol to sexually assault a fourteen year old female at a party after a Bear Creek Senior Highschool football game. Although Mr. Ortiz was 17 at the time, he was tried as an adult due to popular outcry. Nathan Wallace, head of the Denver chapter of the ACLU, spoke to reporters regarding the case. "While violence against women is always wrong, the sexual offender registry will continue to be abused. Todd was turning his life around, served his time, and made every parole meeting. Not only did someone come and beat him and drag him away with a firearm, it seems clear to me that his neighbors then looted his apartment. All because of a crime he did six years ago."

PPPD spokesmen had no comment, but police insiders hold out little hope that Mr. Ortiz will be found.

Massive fire devastates group home 2016 Oct 03 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

October 3, 2016 - Pokoh's Peak Times - In what experts are calling a harrowing tragedy which is becoming all too common, at least eighty one people are dead, mostly children, when the William S Clark Group Home on the slopes of Mount Bergen exploded and burned down to the ground early Sunday morning. Three children survived the blast, but all three are considered stable and are expected to make a full recovery, thanks to unknown heroes who pulled them from the ruble, but left before emergency crews arrived.

The group home, a purpose built orphanage built by Clark, the famous Massachusetts educator who also was a mining company owner, was over a hundred years old. However, it had been inspected both by the county building inspectors and the state Department of Public Health and the Environment within the last month, and had received high marks in storage of hazardous material and fire safety. Dale Griffin, who owns a house next to the orphanage, says that Michael and Sarah Graham, the married couple and operators of the group home, were diligent and dedicated people. "Good Christian folk, they took care of everyone. They even had a sprinkler system installed, even though the inspector said they didn't have to."

The cause of the explosion and resulting fire are unknown. The Grahams, the onsite psychologist Dr. Shirley Kim, and the groundskeeper/maintenance man are presumed dead, as well as sixty-eight children, either orphans or children from unstable homes. Ambulance units were overwhelmed, so National Guard units were dispatched to the scene to take the dead to Hangar East at Chilcott airport. Fire inspectors are investigating, and hopefully will find a cause soon.

FBI asks for missing person report 2016 Oct 03 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

October 3, 2017 - Denver Post - Jack Radtke, the FBI agent in charge of the Special Administrative Investigation Division, which has been tasked to combat the growing number of violence incidents over the past two years, held a press conference today at the FBI Headquarters requesting the public to not only report suspected missing persons reports to their local authorities, but also to his office.

"Since our arrival here, SAID has done a complete audit of missing person reports for the state of Colorado, and we find that normal missing person reports have underreported the amount of missing individuals by at least thirty five percent. The most egregious counties for missing people are in order, Jefferson, Denver, Arapahoe, Adams, Douglas, Park, Clear creek, Bloomfield and Lake counties. We ask in the spirit of justice, that people also report missing friends and families to our offices, either at 1-800-324-7243, or at www.fbi.gov/comissing. While we still believe that the violence caused was a battle of two opposing forces tangentially involved in the drug trade, having an accurate demographic and geographic map of where violence has occurred is the first step to shutting it down."

Reaction ranged from positive commendations from Colorado's two senators and seven Representatives to congress, to angry condemnations from local law enforcement officials. Samuel Johnson, police chief of Pokoh's Peak said he was disappointed. "This public relations ambush, this lynching of local officers by hype, is a travesty. He acts like we haven't been doing our best!" Denver PD chief Rodney West said, "Anyone can hop off a plane from DC and point fingers. But that's what you'd expect." However, Sheriff Amanda Helm of Lake County welcomed the report. "Others weren't at the Leadville Fishery attack. I was. Something has to be done."

Violence can only be concealed by a lie, and the lie can only be maintained by violence.

           - Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

Gray: On Tuesday, January 13, 2015, Daren Thomas Coal, a security guard for a local corporation, walked into the Trade Winds Caf in down town Pokoh's Peak, and after muttering "They have my kid", blew himself up with a sophisticated suicide bomb. At the time, police were curious about his motive - it turned out that Mr. Coal's children were safe and all accounted for.

(image of the Trade Wind's Caf after the bombing)

Gray: It was a mystery, until police sources started noticing the increasing use of the drug technique "kitty bending", where users mix the sedative Ketamine with Valium for the high, but it also induces hallucinations. It is suspected, with evidence given by his wife and friends, that Coal suffered a psychotic break and hallucinated that his company, Thorne Industries, had kidnapped his son, Vincent, and he needed to attack the caf or the 'secret masters' would kill his child. This coincides with what street level dealers said about the beginning of 2015.

(Image of a man with expensive gray slacks, and a white shirt. His skin indicates he is not white, probably Hisspanic, but his face is pixelated, and his voice has been changed)

Confidential Informant: So, about that time, the cholos, both Mexicans and the Crips, started selling the stuff for kitty bending on the streets. The bosses of the Peak didn't like that, no. They came down hard, and that's what happened to ese Fontaine. Crips didn't like being told no, understand?

Gray: Reactions were swift.

(image of an overturned Lincoln MKS filled with bullet holes, lying in the verge off of Snowfall Canyon Road and River road. Uniformed officers and police detectives can be seen everywhere)

Gray: Martine Fontaine, an alleged crime lord and one of the 'old guard', and two of her bodyguards were ambushed by Crips on March 10, 2015. The perpetrators, shown on surveillance cameras, escaped to Denver. But the message had gotten through. Kitty bending would not be stopped. Not until the unspeakable happened.

Gray: Four people died, Sheriff Lashley, Deputy Brown, Deputy Ellis, and Ryan Risse, an employee of the fishery. Deputy Helm, now Sheriff Helm of Lake County, was rescued by the RRT, and Jeffrey Sapp, another employee, was found locked in an electrical substations room. Both survivors declined to be interviewed for this segment.

(film from a helicopter of a dirt road in winter, with a frozen over river nearby, and many bodies just lying sprawled where they fell, bringing to mind the pictures of Jonestown in Guyana).

Gray: Almost two dozen people died attacking the fishery workers and the officers. Twenty four were found a week later on the other side of mountain range, unexpectedly dead as they walked. Later that month, more bodies were found in the unused Busk-Ivanhoe Tunnel, where they had been tossed in the canal underneath, and some had floated all the way to the Arkansas River.

(a computer graphic of the waterflow from the waterway in the tunnel, through Lake County to the Arkansas river)

Gray: It was baffling and frightening, and it took eighteen months before a possible theory developed about the insanity at the Fishery.

Dr. Ernest P. Russell, PhD in Psychology, University of Colorado: "Kitty bending is dangerous because the wrong amount of ketamine in the mixture will cause permanent psychosis, with both homicidal and suicidal thoughts. Obviously, someone gave these pour souls who were choosing to party (he puts air quotes around party) the wrong mixture, and the results were catastrophic."

Confidential Informant: "After that cluster (expletive deleted), the head of the Crips said no more of that shit. (image the CI is talking over an image of Andre Jacobs) He didn't want to give up the cash, but it was too dangerous. He stuck with heroin and cocaine, but he did branch out to prostitution."

(image of a 12 year old girl dressed scantily on a street corner at night, under a street lamp).

______________________________________________________________________________

Thursday, October 13, 2016 - Pokoh's Peak Times - In the first victory in the escalating drug war threatening to engulf central Colorado and the Denver metropolitan area, FBI agents launched a dozen raids across Jefferson County, arresting at least two dozen suspects in evening raids. Head agent Joyce Hittner, at a press conference just before press, announced the arrests and the seizure of over one million dollars in street value of illegal drugs, including large amounts of heroin, cocaine, and crystal methamphetamine. FBI strike teams reinforced by Colorado Bureau of Investigation units launched simultaneous raids across the whole county. Pokoh's Peak Police Department, Arvada Police Department, Edgewater Police Department, Golden Police Department, Lakewood Police Department, Littleton Police Department, Westminster Police Department, and Wheat Ridge Police Department, plus the Jefferson County Sheriff's Department, were not involved.

When asked about the lack of police involvement, the lead agent on the arrests, Special Agent Jack Radtke, replied, "It would be impolite for me to comment on that. Let us just say, we would not be able to do so without the work of the late DeAndre Bailey of the CBI. Hopefully, this will send a message to criminals that their history is determined, and maybe, just maybe, keep a light hand off the trigger."

"None can love freedom heartily, but good men; the love not freedom, but license"

               - John Milton

Charlotte Gray, KJCW anchor: Governor Hickenlooper and the General Assembly were shocked by the outrageous events in and around central Colorado, and they increased funding to law enforcement to deal with the threat. The main focus point was the Front Range Sawatch Range Multijurisictional Task Force, led by DeAndre Bailey , a Colorado Bureau of Investigation agent long groomed as a rising star since his football days at Colorado State University in Fort Collins.

Gray: The Task Force picked over the evidence and grilled confidential informants, trying to determine influences that were converging on Pokoh's Peak, from Los Angeles

(Image: reusing a mug shot of Andre Jacobs from the first episode)

Gray: to Mexico

(video of a stretch limousine passing in front of a poor section of an unnamed Mexican city)

Gray: It was evident that they were getting closer. On May 16, 2015, three members of the task force, Agent Bailey, Agent Victoria Ramirez of the CBI, and Steven Guest, an exchange officer from the Vatican, drove to meet an informant from the Crip gang in Pokoh's Peak, meeting at the old quarry on Boxon Mountain. The three policemen were ambushed there by unnamed assailants, and Ramirez and Guest were slain. Bailey was put in the hospital with a fractured skull. Thomas Orsted, another member of the Task Force reacted angrily:

(Video image in front of Polcie HQ - reporters questioning Orsted:

"Really? Two detectives dead, four sheriff deputies dead in Lake County, now three more dead, how many civilians murdered, and you (bleep) want to know if we filled out the (bleep)ing paperwork?"

Gray: To this day, Orsted believes that it was related to the current slant of the investigation.

Orsted: Boxon Mountain was a set up. What they didn't finish them they finished later. I - I was no longer able to perform my duties, but we know who did it, we did. But when you are a cop, you can only go by what you prove, not what you believe.

Gray: The identities of the assailants at Boxon Mountain were never discovered, but the high profile ambush of the task force operatives did quiet everything down. It was not until November, when drug violence begin to rise again. Both in here, and in Denver.

Video: Dr. Ernest P. Russell, PhD in Psychology, University of Colorado: "It would only be natural that the street criminal would wait until the winter months. The late spring attack was seen by tens of thousands, and not even harden criminals like to be seen as what they are. They like to raise families, run businesses, and make sure no one ever sees them as more than they wish them to be"

Video: Chief Samuel "Smokey" Johnson, PPPD: "The summer and fall of 2015 was eventful, but nothing directly related to the drug territory war. I mean, we noticed here and there strange things. Denver had a lot more violence, but only looking back could we tell it was coming back. I think after the Boxon Mountain thing, the sides" he puts the words in quotes with his fingers "agreed on a truce. I'm still trying to figure out what the hell the nun thing was about."

Gray: It is still unknown what exactly started the war again. Perhaps it was the public outing of one of the main players.

(Video image of Margaret Potter's filing of a civil lawsuit against DeAndre Bailey, the Pokoh's Peak Times, and the state of Colorado for defaming Andre Jacobs)

Gray: But whatever the reason, as with February 2015, a single event signaled the re-opening of the conflict anew.

Cartel flies into terrorism 2016 Oct 15 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

Sunday, October 16, 2016 - AP (Pokoh's Peak, CO) - Pokoh's Peak is known for its scenic beauty, it's wonderful ski slopes, and its position as a bedroom community for Denver, but for the past two years, it has become, along with its much larger neighboring city, a flashpoint for conflict between rival drug cartels. ON Wednesday, October 12, the FBI and local authorities launched multiple raids across the city, arresting more than two dozen people and seizing two and a half million dollars in drugs. In response, one or more of the cartels made the decision to terrorize this Rocky Mountain city, seizing a Colorado department of Transportation work crew working on a lonely state highway and horrifically dropping them from a Cessna 208 turboprop plane in a move reminiscent of the Dirty Wars in Chile and Argentina. The plane itself went down in a wooded area near Mount Pokoh.

Of the eight road crew workers, seven were found, the most recent one this morning, near the location of the crash site. One remains missing, while one, William Thomas Begay, a Native American, miraculously survived a one thousand foot fall unto a roof of a Volkswagen Cabriolet, with only a broken arm. One suspect was found in the plane itself, while another assailant was found along the flight path. It is unknown which side in this drug war ordered the act, but it is leaning to the shadowy Torreon cartel, who may have employed ex-professionals from the dirty war. The terroristic act, which included a message written on the body of each the victims and stated "Look! We can deliver messages, too! Ho. Ho. Ho" was most likely related to the drug raids three days earlier, and a reference to the movie "Die Hard". Special Agent in Charge Joyce Hittner said it was uncertain who the message was for, whether it was to law enforcement or to cartels competitors.

In a highly unusual, related story, a statement attributed with high reliability to Los Zetas, Group Bravo and Zetas Vieja Escuela (Old School Zetas) announced that despite media reports, they have had no dealings in the Denver Metropolitan area, and threaten death to anyone mispresenting them.

Meanwhile, the FBI has filed papers in Federal District court to ask for officially ask for aid from the National Security Agency in Fort Meade, Maryland.

His vehicle, a black 2015 Nissan 300Z, was found abandoned eight days ago at a Pokoh's Peak care facility.

White letters on a black screen: In conjunction with the NewsMedia Group and Fox News (fade out)

(fade in - white letters on black)

No matter what political reasons are given for war, the underlying reasons is always economic

          - A J P Taylor

(fade out, fade in to news footage of Trade Winds Caf in the aftermath of the February 2016 bombing, concentrating on the shattered front window and a remaining section with blood splatter on it)

Charlene Gray, news anchor: Eight people died in that explosion, including Edwin Don Hicks. Hicks was an arson investigator for the Littleton, Colorado, who police suspect was the suicide bomber himself. Hicks left behind a family and besides the death of his coworkers at a recent fire, his life seemed ordinary. In fact, the last time he was seen was at the site of the deadly fire on South Maxwell Road. After that, he walked into the trade Winds Caf and blew himself up. Information that was leaked to KJCW, the whole basis of this report, was Hicks was forced by the Torreon Cartel to his act, with a threat to his family, with the idea that Andre Jacobs, whom the Torreon Cartel believed to be their main competition for the drug trade in Pokoh's Peak, was having a meeting there.

(image of Andre Jacobs' mug shot from the California Department of Detention, and a picture of alimo through a Mexican city)

Gray: Jacobs was not there, so the violence continued. This was followed shortly with the assassination of DeAndre Bailey, who along with Colorado State Patrol Sergeant Timothy Nguyen, were assaulted and slain by one side or the other. Andre Jacobs civil suit against Bailey was settled after the death of the agent, but there is no concrete evidence linking the two actions.

Video of Jack Radtke, FBI: I've got all of Agent Bailey's files, but what I think happened is that when DeAndre was assassinated, all the steam of the task force just" makes a poofing motion with his hand. "Local law enforcement is not equipped for maintaining the momentum of a force, not like us or say, the Policia Federal of Mexico. Son until we were called in after the use of assault rifles on an interstate highway, the investigation just kind of tread water."

Chief Samuel "Smokey" Johnson, PPPD, on being told of Radtke's comments - he gets up and walks off camera. There's a time gap, then he comes back and sits back down: "/Agent/ Radtke sits in his DC office and takes the cases after the facts, and you can understand why he thinks that's the case. But PPPD has to be on the ground every /day/. Starting with Jack Adair and Detective Schuyler, we have lost a dozen offices! A dozen. So, he can come to my office, look me in the face and tell me we have lost momentum." He stares at the camera. "I look forward to it."

Gray: Whether local police lost their drive, the rival cartels, the Pokoh's Peak Crips and the Torreon Cartel, continued their war.

(video footage of the SOURCE club having been shot up on March 16)

Gray: The war continued, with shootings for mysterious reasons. No one knows which side claimed the SOURCE club, but it's opening as delayed due to the attack. Sproadic attacks continued.

(videos of police units investigating burned out cars on the Gode Lake Fairgrounds, and a crime scene in Sand Creek Park in Denver)

Gray: The first major blow to cartel operations was a DEA raid on the closed Jackson Gulch stripe mine.

(cellphone camera footage from a person driving on Interstate 70, showing massive tracer fire from the area near the mine)

Gray: While DEA officials will not collaborate, a significant portion of the Torreon cartel's manpower was either killed or arrested that night. With the Jacobs' gang defending its home turf, the battle for Pokoh's Peak was over. The Battle for Denver had just begun.

Sunday, October 23, 2016 - (AP) - Denver, Colorado - Today, prosecutors filed 67 counts of drug possession and drug trafficking in federal court at the Alfred A Arraj Courthouse in Denver. 22 defendants were arraigned and twelve of them pleaded Guilty, while the rest pleaded Not Guilty. The Federal prosecutor in charge of the case, Ricki Stone, acknowledged while there was twenty seven arrests, only twenty two people were arraigned.

Neighbor Watch under fire; 2 dead 2016 Oct 24 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

Saturday, October 22. 2016 - Pokoh's Peak, CO - A street altercation involving a neighborhood watch formed to combat recent drug violence and unidentified assailants ended in the deaths of two watch members and the severe inuring of a third. Joel Elliott Hunter, 29, and Ray Marcus Wagner, 53, were killed and Carrie Slipper, 39 was shot twice in the stomach and in the throat, on Wagner Avenue early Thursday night. Witnesses say that a man approached the watch group of four people, and made suggestive comments toward Ms. Slipper. When the fourth man of the watch group objected and tried to physical intimidate the assailant, two other men ambushed the group. One of the men had what police describe as a Glock 18 machine pistol, which fired over two dozen bullets at the group. Hunter was killed instantly, and Wagner bled out.

Carrie Slipper is a physical therapist who works with the Helping Hands Shelter, was listed in serious but stable condition in Pokoh's Peak General Hospital. Hunter was a sculptor and painter from Great Bend, Kansas, who had moved to Pokoh's Peak after hearing that of the vibrant art community in the area. He is survived by his parents in his Kansas, and his partner of three years, Grant Meyer, the artistic director of the Zephyr Stage Theatre in Pokoh's Peak. Wagner was a retired US Navy Chief petty officer, who had served thirty years in the military. Funeral arrangements have not been announced.

Charlene Gray, KJCW news anchor: It is unclear why Denver got involved in the turf battle between what DeAndre Bailey called "the old Guard", the Jacobs network, and the Torreon cartel. But between mid March and the 4th of July, Denver bared the brunt of the violence. At last count, over one hundred twenty individuals were killed or injured, and police sources indicate they may be finding bodies for years.

Dr. Ernest P. Russell, PhD in Psychology, University of Colorado: It is thought that the most successful drug cartels rely on the animalistic sides of any human's personality. Thousands of years ago, when we were a more unabashed predator than we are now, humans struggled over feeding grounds. Much as a pack of wolves would not only wish to keep the deer meadows free of competitors, mayhaps Denver was like the waterhole nearby. In any case, this was a life and death struggle against two or more organizational predators, struggling for feeding rights. The rabbits and the mice got in the way.

Chief Samuel "Smokey" Johnson, PPPD: I can't really give you the details, but the DEA raid on the mine broke whatever happened. Sure, the local networks were still making money, but after that raid, roaming gangs of dead eyed killers moved away from Pokoh's Peak to a larger city, where it was easier to hide. " A knowing smile. "PPPD didn't mean to do that Denver, but we were doing our jobs."

(computer presentation of the Denver/Pokoh's Peak area, with killings of four or more people from January 2015 to September 1, 2016, the images appearing in chronological order.)

Gray: With the final moves of Denver, a city was left burning and for many, in mourning. The flow of drugs were unabated, the police were stretched to the breaking point. It was estimated that the city of Denver, the Counties of Douglas, Adams, Arapaho< Jefferson and Denver sent over $900,000 in paid overtime, and indicated the death of over 18 veteran officers. These numbers have been replaced, but not their quality.

(stock furniture of DPD funeral)

Gray: It was assumed that the violence would continue in a lesser form, even as the aggressive Jacobs network had fallen quiet. Even now, the Old Guard and the Torreon cartel, quietly circle each other to pick over the bones of the what was once an organization that controlled most of the illegal drugs in the city. Andre Jacobs himself was last reported to have fled to California, taking only his closest subordinates and leaving his erstwhile allies to twist in the wind. The Torreon cartel has had a recent breakup with their alliances with the Zetas, and it leaves the shadowy figures of the Old Guard in their places of power.

(video of a high rise in Denver, video of the Eaton St nightclub strip, video of Pokoh's Peak itself, although no particular building can be clearly scene)

Jack Radtke, FBI agent in a voice over of the videos: They are still out there, the thugs, the villains, the monsters, that caused this. They think they can get away with it, but they aren't. Not just because of the FBI, but because decent, right minded people know the difference between right and wrong, and they will stand. We have a case against Jacobs now, thanks to some of those people. We will find him in California. As for the rest, it is only a matter of time. When they make a mistake, the FBI, the CBI, and all the local police will be there, waiting for them.

Gray: Is the violence over with the causes of the violence having fled? No one can tell. They may come back. But the press, and the police, and your local citizen will be looking for them.

Plane Survivors tell of their orde 2016 Oct 28 Media (Gyrfalcon)

Saturday, October 29, 2016 - (AP) Denver, Colorado - In an ABC NBC exclusive tonight, Augustin Romero Herrera and William Thomas Begay will discuss the miraculous events of how they survived the massacre of their fellow road crew workers who were kidnapped and murdered by the Torreon cartel. The Cessna 208 dropping the Douglas County road crew as a message to rival drug gangs dropped a total of seven out eight men.

William "Billy" Begay, a Ute Indian from the local reservation, was cast out by one of the six hijackers from Mexico at one thousand feet over the Central Business District of Pokoh's Peak. He smashed into a Volkswagon Cabriolet, which had a soft top, and survived the fall with only a broken left forearm. He attributes his survival directly to the spirit of his ancestors, Senawahv.

Gus Romero was supposedly the last person to be dropped out of the plane, but as the only Hispanic person in the road crew, he guesses that they didn't want to kill one of their own. Romero says "My family was in Texas before Davy Crockett showed up, but they didn't know that, and I wasn't about to tell them."

The ABC news documentary comes on the same night as the conclusion of Fox's six part special on the violence in Colorado.

Lottery Ticket Spree Continues 2016 Oct 30 Media (Kestrel)

______________________________________________________________________________

A local convenience store here in Pokoh's Peak was targetted by what authorities believe to be a 3-person team, two men and a woman, that have been working their way through Colorado. The pattern is the same, although which individual plays which roll has varied. One of them asks to use the bathroom, then another comes in and tells the cashier that the bathroom is flooding. While the cashier goes to deal with the flooding bathroom (the toilets appear to be intentionally clogged to cause this overflow), the group steal all of the lottery tickets - and if possible, the store keys.

The store in question, Marty's, has been a landmark of Pokoh's Peak for more than thirty years. Recently, the owner had started advertising his large supply of lottery ticketss, claiming to have more and more types than any other store in the area. This appears to have backfired as the store was hit less than a week after the advertisement was aired the first time. Police in the area refused to comment, but an annonymous source inside the department say that they had believed the spree limited to the Wheat Ridge and Broomfield area on the far side of Denver.

Drug Deal goes wrong in Golden 2016 Nov 04 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

November 2, 2016 - Pokoh's Peak Times - Forty one party goers at the Halloween night bash at the Mount Vernon Country Club north of Pokoh's Peak was held hostage for a half an hour as rival gangs practically destroyed the ninth hole of the private golf course on the other side of Genesee Mountain. At approximately 11pm, as the party was still in full gear, a dozen men with automatic weapons and frightening masks (later determined to be the uniform of Taiwanese Special forces) broke into the club and expertly subdued staff and guests for about an hour and a half. During that time, the area around the ninth hole, the on farthest from the club house, was the scene of a firefight, says some of the survivors. These survivors, who refused identification out of fear for their lives, said that their captors assured them that they were only being held to prevent any outside interference of what appeared to be a clash of criminal organizations. A woman behind the mask said that the "people from Torreon" would have to go now. Police sources say, some of the assailants spoke Greek.

Picture: hqdefault.jpg Caption: The assailants were dressed like this Taiwanese Special Forces soldier.

The assailants left as soon as the firefight was over, and the staff and party goers were only bruised and frightened. Police response was slowed by mechanical failures at the Jefferson County Sheriff's Department, and Colorado State Patrol officers arrived first, but not in time to see any suspects. Police sources vaguely identified some human bones, but the entire area near where the battle took place was incinerated by jellied gasoline, more commonly known as napalm. Both CBI and FBI units were there for the entire day, only leaving this morning.

Colorado Legislature passes bond 2016 Nov 08 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

Tuesday, November 8, 2016 - the Colorado State legislature, on the urging of Denver and Pokoh's Peak City officials, and county officials, passed an emergency bond bill to supplement law enforcement budgets by two-fold across the state. With the ratings on the bonds as excellent, bond markets snapped up the Colorado l Appropriation for Law Enforcement (CALE) bonds at a record rate. According to the state accounting office, the extra funds will pay for overtime, new hires in both regular police and rapid response teams, and heavier firepower to deal with influx of criminal elements from Mexico.

Locally, CALE outlays will be used by Pokoh's Police Department to fully staff the Rapid Response team, and the purchase of carbine rifles to supplement patrol cars. Jefferson County will be outfitting its new Tactical Assault Squad with new tech body armor, and at least one armored personal carrier for standoff situations. As a compromise to liberal lawmakers, all police agents on active duty will be required to wear body cameras, with exceptions requiring state court approval. The special court will be established in Denver.

     In the early morning of November 11, the Orthodox Jewish cemetary serving Denver, Pokoh's Peak and it's surroundings was broken into by a woman described as a young blond woman in her early twenties who appeared to be wearing an outfit that didn't suit the weather. She dug up the grave of Pokoh's Peak citizen Genevieve Moreau, a sixteen year old who tragically took her own life six weeks earlier. The woman allegedly severed and stole the head of this young woman, adding to the family's already terrible suffering.

     When asked for comment, the just fired security guard, Jacob Mitzheim, said that he thought he had her cornered when he called the police, but when they arrived the woman was gone. When asked to describe how she escaped, he would only say that he couldn't explain it, that it should have been impossible. A source close to the family say that he appears to have entered a fugue state at the time of the robbery and has no clear memory of what really happened. He is being cared for at home by family.

House fire kills 10 2016 Nov 11 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

November 11, 2016 - Pokoh's Peak Times - Ten people are dead after a four alarm blaze broke out in a southwest Pokoh's Peak neighborhood. The fire, at 2715 Machebeuf Street, started in the basement and with twenty minutes, fully engulfed the house. This was the home of the Matthews brothers, John, Mark, Luke, Simon and Peter, who had grown up in the neighborhood and inherited the home from their grandmother. The five other people confirmed dead in the fire were 'probably' their significant others, although their next of kin have not been notified, so their identities have not been released. Police insiders believe that the fire started in the basement due to the Matthews attempt at making crystal methamphetamine, also known as meth. Friends of the Matthews, who frequented white supremacist organizations, said they were considering doing that to fund their "rebellion against the Zionist Occupied Government". Crystal methamphetamine manufacturing can be dangerous since the process is extremely flammable. It is also believed that the Matthews had stored explosives, including grenades in the basement, for their planned rebellion. Reports that three Hispanic men seen running away from the house just before the fire has not been substantiated, and may be just a reflection of the overall unease of the metropolitan area due to the Torreon drug cartel 's attempted takeover of the territory.

Funerals for the brothers will be held at Camp Stormfront in northern Larimer County next weekend.

Explosion at mall 2016 Nov 14 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

Monday, November 14, 2016 - Denver Post - Mysteries still abound about the massive explosion at the Flatiron Crossing Mall in Bromfield that occurred Sunday night at 8pm, destroying forty five vehicles in the parking lot at the intersection of Zang Street and Flat Iron Drive. Police spokesmen for the Broomfield Police Department are unsure about the number of dead although they report four injured when a hood of a car crashed into Zoe's Restaurant. The injuries were not life threatening. Eye witnesses report at least two deaths, but forensics experts are having difficulty in determining actually who died and what happened.

The case has been taken over by the FBI and deemed a 'matter of national security', causing most local sources to identify this as a terror instant, but the security laws have been issued, so those same sources are being discrete on what they tell reporters. One undisclosed source in Washington, DC says that they believe that this was not related to local troubles, and may have been a terrorist attempt on the mall that detonated early.

Three children dead in church atta 2016 Nov 19 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

+bb Saturday, November 19, 2016 - Pokoh's Peak Times - Three local children are dead after stumbling upon some sort of secret meeting in the basement of the abandoned St Paul's church in southwestern Pokoh's Peak. Dean Larson, 14, Greg Carlson, 14, and Dustin Harper, 13 were found slain along with five adults in the attack on Thursday night, shot in the head by an unknown assailant. The five adults have not been identified officially, but police sources say that one of them may be George Timothy Greene, 28, a popular transgender performer in the Denver scene, that has been missing for some weeks.

Police sources told reporters that this was related to the ongoing violence, but the Times has learned that the three children were not killed by the same 9mm pistol and are believed to have been 'sacrificed' to something, although details were not forthcoming. When informed of this release of this opinion, Detective Richard Secor accosted a reporter and explained that if that part of the story got out, "PPPD will freeze you out so bad you'll think you were in Edmonton". The Pokoh's Peak Times has asked the police department for an internal investigation into Secor's threat.

Homeless Couple burned to death 2016 Nov 19 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

Sunday, November 20, 2016 - Pokoh's Peak Times - A couple known for small time theft and bunko have been found burned to death in Pokoh's Peak, behind the Wheeler's Printer and Copier Supplies building. Blaine Stephen George, 31, and Virginia Emma Burke, 26, were well known for being local characters in the East Colfax area of Denver. Denver police say that while the couple did engage in panhandling, small time snatch and grab, prostitution and bunko, they were well liked in the neighborhood, and 'relatively harmless'. There is no indication how they got into the dumpster behind the office supply company, although authorities surmise they may have been sleeping been someone threw an Improvised Explosive Device into the dumpster. Burke died instantly, but bystanders attempted to smother and first aid George, but were unsuccessful. Police sources declined to ascribe a motive for the horrific attack.

Ex Con found murdered in home 2016 Nov 19 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

Sunday, November 20, 2016 - Denver Post - Gabriel Guzman Munoz, 36, a resident of Aurora who had been released less than three weeks ago from Crowley County Correctional Facility was found murdered in a private home bordering Pokoh Peak's Chilcott International Airport. Guzman Munoz, who was released six years into a ten year sentence for grand theft auto for good behavior, apparently was picked up by a group of people in a white 2007 Buick Lucerne, but never arrived at the party for his release at his family's house. Most police officials in Aurora and at Crowley County CC, while acknowledging his previous career, are discrediting the idea that Guzman Munoz directly contributed to his death, especially with the news that the FBI has taken over the case. Security cameras at the correctional facility showed the ex-con waiting for the 7:30pm bus, but being picked up at 7:10pm by the vehicle - this same vehicle was traced to be at ground zero of the attack on the Flatiron Crossing Mall in Broomfield, by FBI forensic experts. Special Agent Jack Radtke is promising to release more information as he is able to.

Man Wakes from Coma with Amnesia 2016 Dec 06 Media (Kestrel)

______________________________________________________________________________

     Andrew Wilkins, a local artist who has been missing for the last five months was found acting strangely in downtown, attracting a crowd although eye witness accounts of exactly what happened are very strange and make little sense. Video shows him attempting to run into traffic and then stopping for no apparent reason, falling into a shaking mess on the ground. He was picked up and held in the psych ward at the local hospital. While there he ranted about how his body had been stolen and he'd been forced to hurt people, and about how he'd seen all sorts of strange creatures, describing the corners of his room as being full of dark creatures and nightmares. Approximately twenty-two hours after he was admitted to the psych ward, he fell into a coma. Waking up three days later, he was disoriented but had no memory of the last few months. He is still in the psychiatric ward, being treated for amnesia, rather than delusions. He was willing to speak with the reporter but had little to say, he claims to have no memory of anything that has happened in the last 5 months.

     In that time, he has produced no art, having failed to fulfill existing commissions or take new ones. His wife reported him missing after three days - he regularly would disappear for short periods when engaged in his work, but never for longer than that without contacting her. She's relieved to have him back but very worried about his amnesia and where has been over the last few months. Police are investigating.

Theft Arson Homicide in JeffCo 2016 Dec 12 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

Tuesday, December 13, 2016 - Pokoh's Peak Times - A Palladian style mansion built on the slopes of Mount Pence was burned down early Monday morning, in what Jefferson County Sherriff's Department detectives are calling a theft, which led to both arson and homicide of at least two people. 15 Sinton Road, known locally as Cassa delle Farfella, was a complete ruin, after the assailants used stolen aviation fuel from Chilcott International Airport to burn down the stone mansion completely. At least two security guards were killed by the assailants and left to bleed to death in the front yard before emergency units arrived. Local residents told police that the woman who lived there, Adalina Giovanni, had decorated the house in a very expensive manner. There is some evidence that items were carted away before the house was burned down. Whether more people were in the house has yet to be determined, because the jet fuel used to incinerate the house has rendered the property unstable, so to identify any more victims will be a long and arduous process. Police sources say there is no news on the whereabouts of Ms. Giovanni.

Selena Zhang Destined to Hollywood 2016 Dec 20 Media (Owl)

______________________________________________________________________________

Variety - Today it was announced that UFC fighter Selena Zhang has been offered a movie role in the next Dwayne Johnson action flick. It's unclear at this time what her role will be, but speaking with The Rock he assured that it would be one that would speak to the fighter's abilities as he's very impressed with her.

Zhang is currently ranked #4 in the world in the UFC and is believed to be a contender for the Welterweight belt. Her fans know her as B.A.B.S., an acronym she picked up during her fight when she screamed at her coach that she was a bad ass bitch. Since then her popularity has soared.

Right now the movie is in pre-production and will begin filming in the spring.

Homeless Shelter arson 2016 Dec 20 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

Tuesday, December 19, 2016 - Pokoh's Peak Times - Federal, state and local investigators are probing the attack on the Helping Hands homeless shelters early Monday morning, which resulted in no deaths or injuries but many questions. Approacximately one am, ten armed men emerged from two vehicles and entered the vehicles, while at the same time, someone temporarily disabled the three cellular towers that served the area. The men, armed with assault rifles, freed all the dogs from the shelter and forced occupants of the other one out into the street, and then detonated kerosene bombs within both buildings, gutting both. It has yet to be determined whether the buildings can be rebuilt. Investigators have no motives for the attack, as there are conflicting witness accounts. Some claim it was the action of the dreaded Torreon cartel, while others claim that none of the men spoke Spanish. Investigators believe that the manager of the sites, Darla Renningan, is tangentially related to Andre Jacobs, whose alledged drug ring was busted this year by the FBI.

Homeless shelters and good Samartians have stepped up to provide extra housing for idigents. Jolon Talltrees, proprietor of Greener Pastures Recycling center, has let some of those who took shelter at Helping Hands stay at his housing, and Club Alighierihas re-opened it's temporary shelters. In the meantime, a search for perpretrators and motives continue. Police are looking to interview Ms. Rennigan, and police sources says she has yet to meet with them.

Church provides homeless shelters 2016 Dec 22 Media (Gyrfalcon)

______________________________________________________________________________

Friday, December 23rd, 2016 - Pokoh's Peak Times - In a bit of early Christmas giving, the Denver archdiocese has announced the rapid opening of eight new shelters immediately, scattered around the south western end of Pokoh's Peak. These new shelters were rundown houses that had sat on the market for for over a year, and were bought by the Catholic church and turned into available spaces over night.

(A map of southwestern Pokoh's peak, with eight starred locations)

Robert E Kelley, the manager of the Opus Dei retreat on Old Gold Mine Rd on Genesee Mountain, spoke to people at the opening of a home on Shadow Street. "Opus Dei means 'the work of God", and what better work can there be than providing for those less fortunate then us. I've talked to the city managers, and they believe this will more than compensate for the loss beds at Helping Hands. While we have the rooms and basic supplies, we still need funds and donations. I will be staying on Shadow Street for the time being, and hopefully we can receive more donations to fund this long term project. Although this is a Catholic organization, we do not discriminate for any reason, and while we will certainly discuss our faith, if asked, it is not a requirement of use." Shelters for the homeless havebeen stretched since the December 18th attack on the storied Helping Hands shelters on Comanche Circle.

Girl of 8 Dies Mysteriously 2016 Dec 23 Media (Owl)

______________________________________________________________________________

Denver Post - Two days ago paramedics responded to Pokoh's Cantina and Brewery, a hotspot in the Pokoh's Peak district of Denver. 911 received a distress call about a 8-year old girl in medical distress. Rescue dispatchers attempted to relay first aid assistance to the caller to no effect. When paramedics arrived, they found the girl on the floor with several patrons rendering CPR and life saving techniques to the young girl. Rescue personnel attempted to resuscitate the girl for 20-minutes before whisking her away to the hospital where she was later pronounced dead. It was reported that the girl's parents were at the scene but refused to speak to any media, only providing that they were grief-stricken and wanted to be left alone.

Pokoh's Cantina and Brewery was last inspected in March of this year and passed with flying colors. Police stated they are unsure of the cause of death at this time and the young girl would be going through an autopsy to ultimately determine what killed her.
