    GRAND COUNTY, Colo. (CBS4) – The East Troublesome Fire has burned nearly 29,000 acres inside Rocky Mountain National Park, and on Friday, the park service said there was no timeline for reopening.

Patterson said that with the rapid growth of the fire last Wednesday into Thursday, structures within the park were lost, mainly on the west side of the park. Staff living on the east side have since been allowed back in, but those living on the west side are still under mandatory evacuation. “The evacuations that we’re hearing about on the west side were so dramatic that it was really focused on life and safety at that point and not… you know, no opportunity to do structure protection, so we do know that we lost some structures on the west side,” said Patterson. Patterson confirmed that while housing on the west...

Had to come by and see it to believe it, but they really are painting over this beautiful mural on Fairmount and Streeper. Ive walked by so many times and taken photos.

    BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A report from Baltimore’s inspector general did not find evidence that a city employee removed multiple pieces of Black Lives Matter artwork from Patterson Park due to racial motivations. On July 31, parks department employees removed the art pieces, believing the art was not permitted when in fact it was. The department blamed a “miscommunication” for the removal, adding the pieces were reinstalled within an hour once it became clear they were indeed permitted. In a statement at the time, the department said: “Months ago, community members and artists brought an opportunity to BCRP for a Black Lives Matter art installation to be featured in Patterson Park. BCRP expressed our excitement to welcome such a relevant and thoughtful project to one of our most prominent parks. We granted the permit and looked forward to the final installation. Unfortunately, due to a recent change in staff, a miscommunication occurred resulting in the removal of some of the artwork. Due to the diligence of a community member, this was brought to our attention and the pieces were restored within...

    BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The Baltimore City Department of Recreation and Parks is investigating one of its own after a park ranger allegedly damaged and removed five Black Lives Matter murals in Patterson Park. The artists said they want a clear explanation for what the city is calling a miscommunication. They all had permission to display their work in the park. One of those artists is Patton Ado. Growing up in Montgomery County, his Hispanic roots date back three generations. His great-grandfather three times over was also a refugee from Syria. He said diversity is important to him and so is Black Lives Matter. “The Black Lives Matter movement should matter a whole lot to everybody. The idea that all lives don’t matter until Black Lives Matter is pretty simple,” Ado said. When he got the news that a Baltimore City park ranger was accused of removing his mural, along with others, from Patterson Park, even though the artists had permission to display their work months ago, he was upset. “I was a little panicked. I think I said, ‘Oh my...
