Blaze Causes $2 Million In Damage To Downtown Building
KGTV, 10News.com – Dec 30, 2007
Early reports listed Jerome’s furniture business among the businesses affected because of a sign painted on the building’s exterior, but Luque said it appears that business was no longer at the location. The building owner leases separate spaces within the warehouse to various commercial tenants. A restaurant supply company, a moving and storage business, and classic car storage service have been identified as being on the site. None appear to have any water or significant smoke damage, Luque said. A sixth business dealing in computer electronics was about 50 percent damaged, Luque said. He placed the fire damage at about $2 million. Broadway between 15th and 17th streets and 16th Street between E and C streets were expected to be closed for most of the day today, the dispatcher said.

I had signed up for a motorcycle tour of the Silk Road and noticed that the tour group — Edelweiss Bike Travel — was offering a Chinese bike in addition to the usual BMWs. If one of the world’s largest motorcycle tour companies was using the bike on one of its most challenging trips, it couldn’t be that bad. Could it?I had never heard of Jialing, but it turns out that the company is one of the oldest and the largest motorcycle manufacturers in China. China Jialing Industrial Co. makes 20 per cent of China’s motorcycles, scooters and mopeds, or two million vehicles a year. What the JH stands for in JH600, that’s not clear, but it could be Jialing Honda. Since 1981, Jialing has been working with Honda Motor Co…

If the Supreme Court rules in favor of the failure to grant a judgment of acquittal, the case would be over and Arbyummi would be cleared. But if the defense wins on the other argument, it would mean yet another trial. Meanwhile, Duncan tries to get on with his life as his mother, Carol Duncan, and wife, Lili, battle their insurance company, filing appeals and usually winning with the state insurance commissioner to get payment for Duncan’s escalating medical costs and thousands in prescriptions monthly. “There have been no great improvements,” said Carol Duncan, who lives with the couple — who sold the restaurant they co-owned — and the couple’s 4-year-old daughter, Carol. Her son has been hospitalized several times since that fateful rainy night — including for a blood clot in June 2006, when he nearly bled to death. But his speech is improving, he can have a little conversation and retains some things. “That wasn’t expected, so that’s a great thing,” said Carol Duncan, a recent widow and cancer survivor…
He’s just accepted his fate. ”She spent hours working with him daily in the garage, doing rehabilitation exercises to make sure his muscles wouldn’t atrophy. But due to recent construction, it’s now being used for storage — and for washing dishes as the home is ripped apart. But Lili, who works seven days a week, juggling several jobs, put in a pool — partly for family enjoyment, but also so her husband can undergo rehabilitation in the water and play with his child. “She didn’t ask for this,” Carol Duncan said of Lili, who has stood by her husband through the entire ordeal. “She’s right there for him all the time. Marriages usually break up over things like this.

“One lady from Georgia brought us candy. The couple roll with it. More than two years after moving into the modern, industrial-style home in the foothills north of Boulder, the family has grown. Daughter Talia, 3, who was born during the project, recently gained a little brother, Ansel, born in August. Also changing: the house. A wall went up between two bedrooms, giving each child a distinct space…
“We put a lot of money into it – lighting that was imported from Europe, ironwork that was custom-made for us, big plush pillows and furniture,” Kim said. Only management can get a taste of the building’s MTV-famed past. The off-limits downstairs, which serves as liquor storage and manager offices, still has the same walls and books the Real World stars shared, Kim said. But the show still attracts curiosity. “Almost every night, someone asks me if this was the Real World house,” Kim said. Cars drive up in front and start taking pictures, and once a busful of tourists unloaded and started snapping away, she said. “I can’t tell you how many scrapbooks I’m in.
