Former Weld County judge sentenced to prison after tipping off friend to drug investigation

A former Weld County District Court judge was sentenced to a year and a day in prison Wednesday because he tipped off a friend that their mutual acquaintance was the target of a federal drug investigation in 2019.

Ryan Kamada, who has resigned his judgeship and has been disbarred, pleaded guilty to obstruction last year. His sentencing hearing lasted nearly four hours Wednesday.

Keeler: With Avalanche chasing Stanley Cup dreams, Darcy Kuemper was worth taking a flier on. But did Joe Sakic just take a flying leap?

Say it ain’t so, Super Joe. Hey, a healthy Darcy Kuemper in the crease is worth taking a flier on. But is he worth taking a flying leap?

Trading a first-round pick, a conditional third-round pick and 22-year-old defenseman Conor Timmins for a 31-year-old goaltender who’s made more than 29 regular-season starts just once since 2014?

ZZ Top: Bearded bassist Dusty Hill dies in his sleep at 72

HOUSTON — ZZ Top’s Dusty Hill, the long-bearded bassist for the million-selling Texas blues rock trio known for such hits as “Legs” and “Gimme All Your Lovin’,” has died at age 72.

In a Facebook post Wednesday, guitarist Billy Gibbons and drummer Frank Beard said Hill died in his sleep. They didn’t give a cause of death, but a July 21 post on the band’s website said Hill was “on a short detour back to Texas, to address a hip issue.” At that time, the band said that its longtime guitar tech, Elwood Francis, would fill in on bass, slide guitar and harmonica.
