Several candidates have filed to run for Denver mayor against Michael Hancock in 2019. Here’s what they say.

Helen H. Richardson, The Denver Post

Nearly a year out from Denver’s next mayoral election, several candidates have declared their intention to run — well before Michael Hancock is expected to make his bid for a third term official.

The four Denverites who have filed candidacy papers for the May 2019 election so far represent a range of viewpoints. But all see failings during Hancock’s seven-year tenure and opportunities for changes in direction, and they want to give voters more choices.

Rumors still abound about political and business figures who are interested in running, some only if Hancock decides against launching his campaign.

The mayor has had recent fundraisers, but so far only one other candidate has reported raising serious money...

5 prospects Denver Nuggets could select with No. 14 pick in NBA draft

Miles Bridges of the Michigan State Spartans celebrates after scoring against the Penn State Nittany Lions in the second half during the Big Ten Basketball Tournament at Verizon Center on March 9, 2017 in Washington, D.C.

Luck was not on the Nuggets’ side during the NBA draft lottery, as Denver kept the No. 14 pick.

Still, gems can be discovered in the middle of the first round. Just ask the Nuggets, who last year took rookie of the year contender Donovan Mitchell with the 13th selection as part of a draft-night trade with Utah, for which Mitchell now plays.

Here are some prospects that Denver could target with the 14th pick:

This is a reach, as Bridges is a borderline top-10 pick...

Refugee found guilty of providing aid to the Islamic Jihad Union after month-long trial in Denver

A federal court jury on Monday found a Uzbekistan refugee guilty on two terror-related counts including providing aid to the Islamic Jihad Union.

Bakhtiyor Jumaev will be sentenced on July 18 in Denver U.S. District Court.

Jurors believed the version of events by the U.S. Attorney’s Office. Prosecutors alleged Jumaev used code words to arrange and then pay a $300 contribution to the Islamic Jihad Union. But Jumaev’s attorney David Barry Savitz argued Jumaev was just repaying a debt to a friend.

Jumaev’s jury trial began on March 22. The case went to the jury late Wednesday afternoon. Prosecutors allege Jumaev provided material support to and conspired to join the Islamic Jihad Union.

Artificial intelligence is the latest competition for real estate agents

Instead of hiring a real estate agent, Ron and Marilyn Hougardy essentially recruited a computer to sell their four-bedroom home in Thousand Oaks, California last December.

The couple was motivated by the 2 percent commission they would pay the artificial intelligence-driven service run by REX Real Estate Exchange instead of the typical 5 to 6 percent paid to a human broker who would find buyers for them.

"It was kind of swimming upstream to make this decision, but we decided let’s try it out," Ron Hougardy, a project manager, said. The home was listed for $880,000 and sold for $890,500 in January, he said.

The bidders for the Hougardys’ home weren’t found by an agent adding the home to a multiple listing service, which feeds that information to Zillow, Trulia and Realtor.com.

Denver Beer Co on Platte Street is closing its next-door barrel room at the end of the month to reopen this spring as Cerveceria Colorado.
