On the Denver Post Chris Dempsey wrote an article called "Nuggets clinch playoff spot", the article talks about how the Denver Nuggets a pro basketball team clinched a playoff spot in the western conference division. The Nuggets have made a playoff spot seven straight times and this year their looking to go far and maybe even win a championship. This matters because many people are probably going to be rooting for the team that s never won a series ad this year it’s going to be the Nuggets. This year is the best chance that the Nuggets can win a championship and I will enjoy it if it does happen.

I read an article on the Denver Post called "Univ. of Colo. considers 9 percent tuition hike" written by the Associated Press. The article talks about how the University of Colorado is raising their intuition prices, the prices can be raised from $572 to $7,018 a year and out-of-state students would pay $28,000, up $1,300. This matters to me and to the world because in four years I will be going to college and the tuition that they are asking for is a lot for any family to afford. What matters to the world is a lot of people cannot go to college because they can’t pay for it and raising the price is obviously not helping the cause.

"Trooper's BAC level more than double legal limit" is article on the Denver Post by Jace Larson. This article is talking about how a Colorado state trooper was arrested because the arresting officer smelled a strong presents of alcohol. The trooper was taken in to custody and a test was done on his blood alcohol level. The blood alcohol level was more than double the legal limit at .194 when the legal limit is .8. All of the dirking that the trooper did was while he was on the job. This article matters because we are suppose to trust our officers to do their jobs and stop people that are breaking the law, Police men are not monitored while on patrol and who knows what they could be doing something can be done about this.

In an article in the Denver Post "Jury finds Clark guilty in Darrent Williams" by Lindsay H. Jones. The article talks about how the police department just convicted a man named Willie D. Clark with the murder of the Denver Broncos player Darrent Williams. What I am so surprised about is Darrent Williams got murdered in 2007 and we are in 2010 now and the police just found the person that did the murder. What matters about this article is this is just one example that shows the American justice system is bad because if it takes three years to find someone guilty there’s something wrong.

The article on the ESPN blog named "Villegas seals third PGA tour win" by the Associated Press. The article talks about Camilo Villegas a Colombian golfer that won one of the biggest PGA tournaments in the year by 4 four shots over Anthony Kim of the USA. People say that Camilo acted bold and that is what put him above his competition. What matters in this article to me and the world is he is form Colombia and that is where I was born and I am glad he is representing my country, which matters to the world because he is form Colombian, and Colombia is not a well known country and he is just making it stand out.
