Mary Kincaid and her son, 3-year-old Jason Gutierrez, get their photo taken with Denver Broncos guard and Central High grad Ben Garland during the second-annual Mile High Salute to Fans Tour at the Fruita Community Center today. The tour will visit three to four cities per day throughout the week and includes autographs and photos with Broncos players, cheerleaders and Miles the Mascot. As a way to thank fans for their loyalty, passion and ongoing support, each tour stop is free and open to the public. Jason has Hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS) — a rare congenital heart defect in which the left ventricle of the heart is severely underdeveloped.

ACLU suit to proceed against city

Although the city of Grand Junction amended its controversial panhandling ordinance earlier this month in an effort to sidestep costly litigation, the American Civil Liberties Union has not dropped its lawsuit opposing the measure. Colorado ACLU director Mark Silverstein said that wording changes in Grand Junction’s amended ordinance were a step in the right direction, but the organization still is concerned with wording in the ordinance.
