BRECKENRIDGE, Colo. (CBS4) – The Breckenridge Ski Area has a problem on its hands heading into ski season as people are giving ski lessons illegally. Now the town may step in to help.
The police department said it’s about safety, but one thing that’s unique with Breckenridge is that the base areas are within the town limits, so while it’s a federal violation right now, the town also wants to make it illegal.
“It’s amazing how many people do advertise, especially on sites like Craigslist, and the ski areas monitor that,” Assistant Police Chief Greg Morrison said.

Breckenridge Ski Area and the town want to crack down even harder on the dangerous niche industry. Illegal ski lessons are a federal crime because it happens on Forest Service property. But with few law enforcement officers around the ski resorts in the winter, it’s also a hard…

MEDINAH, Ill. (AP) — Erasing some of their worst Ryder Cup memories, the Europeans wore the image of Seve Ballesteros on their sleeves and played their hearts out Sunday at Medinah to match the greatest comeback in history and head home with that precious gold trophy.
Europe got its payback for Brookline. Martin Kaymer gave German golf redemption for Kiawah Island.
Jose Maria Olazabal squeezed his eyes and fought back tears when Kaymer holed a 6-foot par putt — about the same length that countryman Bernhard Langer missed at Kiawah in 1991 — to beat Steve Stricker and give Europe the point it needed to keep the cup.
Tiger Woods missed a 3½-foot par putt on the 18th hole and conceded a par to Francesco Molinari that halved their match, that extra half-point making it a clear-cut win for Europe, 14½-13½.
Woods and Stricker, the anchors in the lineup, didn’t…

DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – A man is dead after a shooting outside of a Dallas cabaret that happened early Sunday morning.
Ashaki Hardeman with the Dallas Police Department says the victim was shot around 4:45 a.m. in the parking lot of a cabaret in the 10700 block of Composite Drive. Police believe the victim was involved in an argument with two people when he was shot.
The victim was taken to Parkland Hospital where he later died. He has since been identified as 28-year-old Ruben Riguero-Brito.
Investigators are talking to witnesses from the shooting.
What a rain. It started Friday and is still going on in a few spots still. Long Lake in Anderson County recorded 6.68″ of rain over the last 72 hours; the biggest amount officially recorded in north Texas. Below I pulled the biggest recorded rainfall amount for each county. That 5.39″ in Henderson Co. was at Trinidad, the 4.41″ in Navarro county was at Corsicana.
Across Dallas County there were many reports of 3″ rainfall amounts. Fortunately the rain was spread over three days so flooding problems didn’t become widespread.
Skies are going to clear some as the night moves on. We’ll have some thick fog form over our western third from Somervell County up to Jack County. Lows will drop down into the 50’s:
It’ll be dry and mostly sunny by mid-day tomorrow. A brisk north wind will temper the warm-up, highs will get into the 80’s around the metro…
