  • Missing Colo. man found dead after five days in theater restroom

    FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) — A Colorado man who was missing for five days was found dead in a locked movie theater restroom after workers noticed an odor and forced their way in, authorities said.

    Police had searched the area around the Fort Collins theater after the family of 66-year-old George DeGrazio reported him missing on Jan. 9 and his vehicle was found nearby.

    DeGrazio died of a heart attack, Deputy Coroner James MacNaughton told KMGH-TV of Denver (http://bit.ly/wrNaQe).

    The man's son, Dylan DeGrazio, told the station that he was upset that theater employees didn't find his father's body earlier.

  • New grazing contract awarded for Valles Caldera

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Researchers at New Mexico State University and ranchers from Jemez Pueblo have been awarded a grazing contract that will allow them access to the Valles Caldera National Preserve next summer.

    One environmental group has concerns about returning cattle to the 89,000-acre preserve after more than a third of it was charred last summer by the massive Las Conchas fire. However, preserve officials said the grazing partnership meets congressional mandates for how the property should be managed.

  • Packers, Giants meet again in the playoffs

    Athletes and coaches don’t live in the past. They do get enlightened and even uplifted from it.
    The Green Bay Packers and New York Giants have good memories from recent postseasons. Green Bay went from sixth-seeded NFC wild card to Super Bowl champion a year ago. New York used a similar route to win the 2007 NFL championship — winning at Lambeau Field on the way.
    They meet Sunday in the final game of the divisional round.
    In going 15-1, including winning all eight home games, the Packers established themselves as the cream of the NFL this season. They have gotten healthy during their bye. They beat the Giants 38-35 in the Meadowlands on Dec. 4.
    Most significantly, they discovered how to win in last year’s surge to the title.
