A year later, the students and staff at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs are no longer in shock over the death of campus police officer Garrett Swasey, who was one of three people killed during a shooting at the Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood clinic.

Now, the Mountain Lions men's basketball team wants to make sure he is not forgotten.

"It's important to not forget the circumstances around his death and the fact that he was willing to step onto the line to protect the community and our campus," UCCS coach Jeff Culver said. "His widow wants this to be a celebration and that's what we plan to do."

UCCS hosts Colorado College at 7:30 p.m.

VAIL, Colo. (AP) — More Colorado ski resorts are open for the season.

Vail and Beaver Creek opened Friday, a day after Snowmass, Wolf Creek and Crested Butte started their lifts.

Aspen Mountain may not open until at least Monday. The Aspen Daily News ( ) reports that would be the first time the mountain hasn't been open during the holiday weekend in decades.

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) — A man accused of killing a Grand Junction woman nearly a decade ago is on trial for a second time.

Lawyers were presenting opening statements in Lester Jones' case on Friday.

He's charged with killing Paige Birgfeld, a single mother who led a double life as a paid escort.

Investigators say he was a client and one of the last people to call Birgfeld before she vanished in 2007. Her remains were not found until 2012.

Jones' lawyers say there is no physical evidence connecting their client to the killing and said one of the other men ruled out by investigators could have killed her.

The end of last school year was horrible, says 14-year-old Emma Hollis. The hurt and pain were almost too much to bear.

Five students at her school, Discovery Canyon Campus, had committed suicide in the second semester.

"It was a very hard thing to interpret," Emma said Thursday, choking back tears.

This school year, kids are seeing "a different way of interpreting" the sad story, she said.

Lining the top of every hallway of the large preschool through high school campus in Academy School District 20 is a continuous chain of thousands of paper koi fish that students, teachers, parents, custodians and other staff created.

It's a symbol of unity and hope, says art teacher Shell Acker.

Hate crimes and interest in white nationalist groups have surged since Donald Trump's election, and Colorado has seen its share of both. But the state also has seen a rise in anti-hate activism, with the Anti-Defamation League, the American Civil Liberties Union and the NAACP all reporting a spike in donations and volunteers.

The number of hate crimes and incidences of harassment across the country since Nov. 8 hit a total of 701 as of Friday, up from about 200 five days earlier as counted by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

At least 15 of those incidents were reported in Colorado.

DENVER (AP) — Opponents of a state ruling that would prevent bars and many restaurants in Denver from offering on-site marijuana consumption said the ruling would overturn a law approved by voters and force people to sneak around while they use pot and consume alcohol.

The new rule announced Friday bars liquor-license holders from apolplying for a permit to allow the consumption of pot. The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment said using alcohol and marijuana together increases impairment.

Mason Tvert, a spokesman for the national Marijuana Policy Project, said the measure approved by voters this month would allow servers to keep track of customers who drink and consume pot products instead of forcing them t
