On Saturday, July 30th and Saturday, Aug 6th, COSILoveYou will host the fourth annual “Backpack Bash”.The Backpack Bash is a citywide effort that seeks to provide access to all things back-to-school for thousands of families in need across the Pikes Peak region. This includes backpacks filled with essential school supplies, additional health services, and the opportunity to have fun as a family in a carnival-style setting. 

 

This event takes place on two consecutive Saturdays, at six locations across the community. Due to the collaborative nature of the Backpack Bash and the hard work of many local partners, this event is completely free to the community. The Backpack Bash is prepared to resource 12,000 students with the essential items needed to get a great start to the school year. 

 

To ensure that we are able to execute the Backpack Bash, COSILoveYou is relying upon the generosity of the community. Our greatest need right now is backpacks. Please consider donating a new backpack at any of the donation drop-off sites across our community. If you’d prefer to make a financial donation, you can fund a new backpack for a student in the Pikes Peak region for just $11. For all info on how to donate, visit backpackbash.com

 Among all types of distracted driving, it’s the use of a phone that leads to most serious injuries in crashes, according to new data from the Colorado Department of Transportation.  Of the 302 serious injuries in distracted driving crashes in 2020, 205 injuries involved drivers who were using their phone just prior to the crash.  The remaining approximately one-third of injuries involved drivers who were distracted by a passenger just prior to the crash. 

To keep the issue of distracted driving top of mind for drivers, CDOT is launching an effort to bring together students, schools, business partners and drivers to take a stand against distracted driving by signing the Defeat Distracted Driving Pledge.

With an infusion of $2.7M from the City’s reserves, Mayor John Suthers on Monday announced the launch of “Keep It Clean COS,” a comprehensive initiative aimed at reducing litter in Colorado Springs. The program has several components. First, the $2.7M will go to purchase new street sweepers and vacuum trucks, and to add manpower to remove trash from medians, streets and other public rights of way. Second, the city is challenging businesses and private citizens to clean up their own property, whether residential or commercial. Finally, Suthers announced a new citywide award. The “Keep It Clean COS Spirit of the Springs Award” will be given annually in the fall to a resident or volunteer community group that has made a significant contribution to helping keep Colorado Springs clean.

International oil benchmark Brent crude, which reached nearly $139 a barrel overnight as the market reacted to the possibility of a ban, was up 6.94% at $131.76 at 10:30 a.m. EST. The shift was reflected in the Dow Jones Industrial Average plunging more than 680 points, or by more than 2%.

 

The U.S. imported about 672,000 barrels a day from Russia in 2021, roughly 8% of the total U.S. of oil and refined products, according to the Energy Information Administration. Today’s ban announcement by US President Joe Biden on Russian oil, gas, and energy imports will increase prices on these commodities - the second-biggest jump in 30 years – stressing market volatility. Founder & CEO of Quant Data, Mr. Hiesinger is a market analyst with extensive experience in observing market fluctuations.
