1. Westboro Baptist to protest Broomfield High School
The Westboro Baptist Church plans to protest outside Broomfield High School from 2:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Tuesday. The Topeka, Kansas-based hate group, known for picketing funerals of fallen U.S. soldiers with anti-gay rhetoric, said they will bring “words of life and health” to students. A counter protest is planned.

The first public meeting in the search for a new police chief for Denver will be held Tuesday at 6 p.m. The city announced last month that Chief Robert White plans to retire from the Denver Police Department. His replacement will come from within the agency.

4. Annual sediment flush may cause trail flooding along Cherry Creek Trail
The US Army Corp of Engineers will conduct a sediment flush in the Cherry Creek Reservoir Tuesday. The annual flush may cause flooding along the Cherry Creek Trail between the reservoir and downtown, the city warned.
