  • Colorado College is one of 17 institutions chosen to receive a Plan Into Action grant from the state Department of Higher Education. The $63,000 will fund a one-year structured immersion project for students from both CC and UCCS to teach in rural school districts in southeastern Colorado, and create strategic community education plans.
  • National Prescription Drug Take Back Day is Oct. 27. Between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., return unwanted or expired medications to one of four locations: the Colorado Springs Police Operations Center at 705 S. Nevada Ave., the El Paso County Household Hazardous Waste Facility at 3255 Akers Drive, University of Colorado Memorial Hospital North at 4050 Briargate Parkway, or the Security Fire Department, Station 1 at 400 Security Blvd.
  • Colorado Springs crews plan to wrap up the third "2C paving season" by Oct. 26. This year, tax revenue collected under ballot measure 2C funded 222.5 miles of paving, along with curb and sidewalk replacements and 150 new pedestrian ramps, according to the city's statement.
