checked off the most significant accomplishment of all. @q >> taylor 1'2fsad the fe of t t taylor graduated and had a full career with the state patrol, he would have checked that goal off his bucket list time and time again. >> reporter: trooper clint rushing's very life is a testament to that. they were side by side investigating a crash when a meth ?u?dealer ing a traffic stop came their direction. i before that morning, but in two and a half minutes i knew the guy he was and the trooper he would have. >> reporter: and that's why taylor's mother had always been so proud, from his childhood to his army service to the start of his trooper career. >> from the age of 4 he always wanted to build his muscles and go into gxthe army. i miss him. i miss his touch, his feel. >> reporter: today carol
my that day as a mom. i will forever be his mom, but you know how hard it is to be a mom when you don't get to see your child every day? don't get to hear your child every day? it's heart breaking. >> tefo was the first of three members of e colorado during that time. president-elect donald trump suggested this morning on twitter that flag burning should be a crime, a crime punishable by the loss of american citizenship. currently there's only one conviction that can strip a natural born american of citizenship, and that's treason. trump might be serious which puts him at odds with conservatives, he could be using a literally incendiary
family's conflicts of interests, or it's suggested he's trying to provoke protesters into flag burning to discredit them. so we asked our people if turn was crazy, sneaky or what? >> i think he's probably crazy like a fox. the reality is it's an established law by the supreme court that flag burning, as disgusting as it might be, is protected by the first there are ridiculous protests happening across the country right now, and if there's one thing we're seeing consistency it's that they're getting more and more over the top, so if he's actually inducing them to burn flags to hurt their pr case, that might be a thing that's happening. >> look, donald trump is serious, seriously trolling all of us. i mean, the simple fact is that this guy spent the entire
scandals, be it signing the front of a $25 million settlement check to victims of turn university scam or the fact that the people he's been appointing to cabinets all over thplace have been wildly unqualified or the same establishment republicans he claimed to want to drain the swamp of during the entire campaign. still out doing mop up today. it's fully contained, firefighter speak for confidence that hot spots won't get beyond control. and facebook got dramatic asking people to mark themselves self-if they lived near green mountain. it worried a lot of moms of people that live in denver that were far from danger, come on
will get a knock on their door this week from a determined woman trying to help them keep their homes by stopping subpoenaing that's perfectly -- stopping something that's perfectly legal, investors buying up homes. i tacked along with her. >> reporter: jill's knuckles have to feel it on a day like today as she works her way through this mobile home park. it's the that might want you to slam the door until you find she wants to save your home. >> the county created a lena against the home -- lein against the home and then it's sold. >> reporter: and it's perfectly legal. the investors are banking on the owners not paying the lein, but after a year the investor can apply for ownership of the mobile home, and scoop it up
essentially. >> the investor with a lein as little at $73 in one case on here can come and have ownership of the entire home. >> reporter: so jill is warning owners. she has a list of 25leins sold at auction earlier this month. she got it because she was at the sale. >> people are literally sitting around the table googling names betting on who won't be able to pay. see, here it is. >> reporter: jill helped out a mom from her son's and now she's trying to help others, so she invested. >> i quickly realized between the prices plus the premiums i couldn't buy all of them, so i underlined the women and bought all theirs, so i bought nine. >> reporter: now she's on a mission to warn the 16 others. >> i'm out causing a ruckus, and telling every to pay so it doesn't happen to them.
state legislators to fight this, so the best advice before you buy any property, check with your county pressurer or local recorder to see if there's an outstanding lein, and of course pay your bills. though she found a lot of leins dealt with clerical errors. >> >. good work. thank you. with eileened within the last -- we learned within the last hour the future of loretto they're closing, declining enrollment and accreditation issues. the nonprofit that owns the lands doesn't have a preference on whether its sold to another educational institution or commercial developer, but with classes scheduled through 2017 it's way too early they say to discuss a possible commercial development at loretto heights. a homeless veteran passed away in wyoming earlier this
at his side, but he was laid to rest today with people surrounding him. the coroner was determined to find his family or close friends. finding none she invited the whole community to come to his funeral, which made for a wonderful scene. his sister was located at the last moment, and found hundreds of people gathered to brother, and met the nurses that comforted him in his final moments. >> gratitude. gratitude is the only word i can use to express it, that all of these people could come out and, a special place in my heart goes to the nurses from the icu who came to this service to tell me they were with him when he died. i'm a nurse myself, and, um, it
that they would take the time to do that. >> we like they are determined to no one who serves honorably should be forgotten, and we're working on an in depth story on the veteran and his service. tonight's recommendation is a chance to get out there and do something. volunteers are needed to light the luminaries at the colorado freedom memorial in aurora on thursday, friday, and saturday. if you've never been out there, this is it's a beautiful and serene place, and only more so when 6,000 luminaries are lit. one for each name, eachman or woman in colorado lost in combat. find the details on the next facebook page. and life for those that return home is not always perfect, but some in the community are committed to

business world, worked in the corporate world, and then ended up linking with these guys. >> veterans to farmers. it's pretty self-explanatory. a reentry grace system teaching veterans a -- reintegration system teaching veterans a variety of techniques. >> my hope is that i can make food that doesn't travel great distances that makes people feel good when they eat it. >> we don't actually charge e we fuelly pay them because it's like an -- actually pay them because it's like an on the job training program. we just see working with the plants how it truly helps people become reintegrated. >> toughest part? >> yeah, it was tough coming back and adjusting back to the civilian world. actually went through really bad separation anxiety because
