Good morning. Here are 5 Things to Know for Friday, June 22, 2018.

1. A Line flaggers being removed
Today, the flaggers at several RTD A Line crossings will be removed for good after federal and state regulators signed off on the new technology that operates the crossing arms. The flaggers will be removed from the Holly, Dahlia, Steele and Clayton crossings at 6 p.m. RTD hopes to have all 11 crossings cleared soon.

2. Pres. Trump: Immigration reform a waste of GOP's time
President Trump tweeted Friday morning that Republican legislators should stop "wasting their time" trying to pass immigration reform bills, adding that new legislation won't pass unless more Republicans are added to the Senate in November.

3. How's Mueller doing?
A new poll suggests that while most Americans think the investigation into Russian meddling in the election should continue but the percentage of people who approve of the job special counsel Robert Mueller is doing is on the decline.

4. "Roseanne" coming back, sort of
ABC announced on Thursday that it will revive "Roseanne" without lead character Roseanne Barr, weeks after the show was put on hiatus after Barr sent a racially insensitive tweet. The working title of the show is "The Conners."

5. A chance of storms this afternoon
Expect mostly sunny conditions and highs in the 80s around metro Denver today. The afternoon will bring a chance of storms with some severe thunderstorms possible in eastern Colorado.
