Northern Colorado and the Western Slope will claim larger shares of Colorado’s population as the state adds 3 million new residents over the next three and a half decades, according to state forecasts. Greeley and Fort Collins will more than double in population and the Western Slope will grow by two-thirds by 2050, the State Demography Office predicts, while Denver, Boulder, Pueblo and the central mountain resorts will grow at slower rates. Also, El Paso County will overtake a built-out Denver County as the state’s most populated. Between 2015 and 2050, Colorado will add the equivalent of another metro Denver, on its way to 8.46 million residents. Though it’s a lot of people, the state’s rate of growth actually is predicted to slow during that period as the baby boomer generation moves on.

close Video Former CBP Commissioner Morgan: Biden’s immigration policy is ‘facilitating illegal immigration’ Former CBP Commissioner Mark Morgan reacts to the ‘remain in Mexico’ policy ending under the Biden administration. On Jan. 22, 12 Mexican state police officers allegedly participated in the mass murder of 19 people, including migrants from Guatemala , who were only miles away from the Texas border. The smugglers, along with the migrants, were shot and burned beyond recognition. They were discovered piled on top of one another in a charred pickup truck near Camargo, Mexico , near the Rio Grande River.

Howard’s Tavern in West View is no exception. The restaurant has been in the family for three generations and first opened in 1962. Derek and Rachel Bovill along with Jennifer Gronsky run it now.

close Video Test drive: Land Rover Defender Fox News Autos Editor Gary Gastelu gets down and dirty with the all-new Land Rover Defender The new Land Rover Defender is on the offense. (Land Rover) The first vehicle to carry the name in the U.S. since 1997 is a thoroughly modern machine that’s very different than recent retro reboots like the Mercedes-Benz G-Class and the upcoming Ford Bronco . Unlike the original Defender, which was a body-on-frame truck with solid axles that was sold in other countries through 2016 , the new one features an aluminum unibody and fully independent suspension. That doesn’t mean it’s gone soft, even if its standard air springs are. The midsize premium SUV was engineered for extreme off-road duty. (Note: We tested a 2020 model due to its late availability, but the 2021 version is identical.)
