El Paso County Assessor Steve Schleiker is hosting an online forum to discuss property valuations ahead of the 2021 reappraisal year. The forum, which is geared primarily towards commercial property owners, commercial property managers, and commercial property agents, brokers and lenders is critical to helping the public understand how the COVID-19 pandemic may impact local property values.

“The combination of our red-hot real estate market and the COVID-19 pandemic is going to have some major impact on the 2021 property valuation process,” said Assessor Schleiker. “We need to start the conversation now so citizens are informed as to how their property taxes may be impacted and our work is transparent.”

An American journalist and her mother were murdered in Turkey, but a quick investigation and prosecution led to a conclusion of domestic violence that some have questioned.  Moreover, questions have been raised as to why the U.S. didn't investigate the case?  The slayings of Halla Barakat, 24, and her mother Orouba, 62, an activist fierce critical of Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad, held similarities to the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.  Recently, a United Nations official tasked with investigating extrajudicial killings expressed interest in further investigating the Barakat murders.  The murders have been the subject of a  new co-investigation by ABC News and  Reveal from the Center for Investigative reporting.  Extra host Shannon Brinias discussed the case with lead reporter Fariba Nawa from her base in Istanbul.  "Justice for Halla" aired on ABC' Nightline and is reported in podcast form.  To listen to the podcast of the ABC/Reveal report, click here for Reveal link.  For further information on the investigation on the ABC News website, click here
