Denver International Airport will be the first city facility to prohibit marijuana possession on all of its property as it attempts to combat illegal interstate trafficking in the face of federal law. Airport officials plan to begin enforcing the new policy, which is the furthestreaching among the city’s marijuana limitations, in early January. Recently adopted city ordinances ban the display and transfer — but not mere possession — of marijuana on city-owned property including parks, the 16th Street Mall, streets and sidewalks near schools. “We talked to all of (the federal agencies involved), and they’ve expressed concern for good reason, but it was our decision based on the way the airport operates,” said Stacey Stegman, DIA spokeswoman. “We didn’t want to impact other airports and other agencies, and we didn’t want to facilitate transporting marijuana across state lines.” Stegman said DIA chose to bar all possession and display of pot to eliminate confusion and make the same rules apply to all. She said the presence of federal agencies at DIA also was a factor; marijuana remains illegal under federal law. The airport has discretion to set such rules under state law and city charter, said Denver Assistant City Attorney David Broadwell. “Amendment 64 broadly decriminalized the possession of marijuana, but the caveat is that the owner of a facility can impose special restrictions,” Broadwell said.

Home at last, soldier’s burial brings comfort to family Pilot’s remains ID’d after more than 6 decades By Kurtis Lee The Denver Post

The date was March 20, 1945, and World War II was nearing its end when Capt. Franklin B. Tostevin climbed into his F-6P and set out on a low-level reconnaissance mission over Eigen, Germany. It would be the 22-year-old’s last mission. As he leveled the aircraft to 100 feet so he could relay the exact enemy location to his comrades flying larger P-47 fighters, smallarms fire from the ground hit his plane, causing it to bank right and crash in a fireball. “He was never seen again; nothing, he just disappeared,” Daniel Tostevin, who

lives in Erie, said about the uncle he never had a chance to meet. “It’s just devastated my family, especially my dad.” For much of the 1940s, the pain of losing a loved one overwhelmed Daniel’s father, Donald. Donald and Franklin’s oldest brother died in a car accident in 1940. A year later, their mother passed away from a stroke. “It was just my dad and Franklin at that point,” said Daniel of his father and uncle, who grew up in New Jersey. “Then Dad lost Franklin. We all knew what had happened, but Dad over the years closed up about the WAR » 6A
