Storm dumps foot of snow

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS – A storm system dumped about a foot of snow on the Park and Gore ranges in northwest Colorado before moving onto the Plains states Sunday.Some isolated spots in the mountains reported up to 2 feet of snow, but most areas above 9,000 feet generally saw about a foot of snow, National Weather Service meteorologist Troy Lindquist said.The Weather Service originally had forecast up to 16 inches of snow in upper elevations through Sunday night, but it canceled winter storm warnings and advisories for the north-central mountains in the afternoon as the storm quickly moved out.CIA considering moving some operations to DenverDENVER – The CIA is considering moving its domestic operations division to Colorado, and could locate it at the Denver Federal Center, already one of the largest concentrations of federal employees outside Washington, Center, U.S. Rep. Bob Beauprez said Sunday.”I don’t think the deal is done, but it is a testimony to the growing significance of the Denver area in energy, bio-tech and almost everything that is national,” he said in a telephone interview.The Arvada Republican first spoke of the possible move in an interview published Sunday in The Denver Post.He said he learned of the possible move in a chance encounter with an acquaintance, whom he would not further identify, before a report published Friday in the Washington Post said the agency was considering the move. “The acquaintance knows the Federal Center is an issue for me because it is in my district. The contact said they were seriously looking at moving a significant (CIA) operation to the federal center. It would certainly be another feather in the cap for the metro Denver area,” said Beauprez.The CIA has refused to comment on the move.Seven-year-old dies after being mauled by dogFRUITA – A 7-year-old girl died Sunday at St. Mary’s Hospital of injuries received when she was mauled by one of the family’s dogs, said police spokesman John Coughran.He said the name of the victim would be released later.The child was attacked last night by an adult male Alaska malamute.
