billion a year in new tobacco taxes, more than double what the state makes on medical marijuana. the goal of the ad is convince there is no solid plan to spend. >> $315 million tax on tobacco that would lock government spending programs deep inside our constitution. for programs that have yet to be determined. that is not right. especially when we don't even know where much of the money is going. >> this is misleading, there is tax money amendment 72 would bring in, your official state voter guide explains the money would go to grants to fund research on tobacco to help veterans and to treat addiction in young people among other things. the ad defendathize claim by pointing out that we don't know who would get the grants and that is true, but that is how grants work, you have to make a pitch for how am money is going to accomplish something in order to win a grant. the valid question has legal
to... >> allowing powerful special interest to misuse our constitution and tax dollars. >> this is speculation, the ad makers are arguing that the grant program's amendment 72 would fund would be abused, we can't prove that won't happen, but the ad makers can't prove that it will. amendment 72 would put guardrails in the laaimed at preventing abuse, like posting grants online so the public can there is something else you should know, we don't know what powerful special interest used grants to research health issues but we can tell you what special interest paid for the ad, the no on 72 campaign is funded so far by just one donor, ultri, one of the biggest tobacco companies in the world, you may know it as phillip morris. the ad is filling a narrative that it will raise lots of money with no plan for spending it.
these taxes and decide whether you like it or not. brandon rittiman, 9 news. >> we invite you to dig into the research, check our work, there is a link in brandon's story on 9news.com. our next question comes from sheila. >> i want to know if a dnr tattoo on my body located somewhere you can tell me where, would actually be official at a hospital or ambulance or wherever, because i want it. >> our out. >> reporter: a dnr tattoo sounds like it should work and make it clear that you don't want to be resusitated. >> but it isn't, catherine is an estate planning attorney and wrote a blog on the topic of do not resusitate tattoos. >> doctors done know if it is valid or not. might be ambiguous because they don't know exactly what you might mean, especially if you
a fan of a band called dnr or you like the government agency that takes care of forests and animals or maybe your significant other has the initials "dnr." in a split-second situation the person caring for you isn't going to know what it means, even if you spell it all out. also... >> it is not changeable, and any other kind of medical directive would be changeable, a tattoo is hard to take off. >> doctors won't take the time to check your sure you have legal ways to back it up. >> because of the liability, too important to not end somebody's life if that is not what they still meant. >> if you want dnr order, get the paperwork and register it, it still your best bet. i am steve staeger. >> your questions guide our conversation each night on next, you can e mail us, firstname.lastname@example.org or get our attention with #heynext.
285 into jefferson county you will see a name along the highway, a name we hope is a familiar one, sergeant shaun renfro. if it doesn't ring a bell, lets fix that. >> a sign of his service, his sacrifice, a 7-mile stretch of 285, the sergeant sergeant renfro highway, he stopped to help a family that got in a crash, before the second crash to safety. he could have driven by on the snowy day, he wasen on duty but he didn't sign up to serve only when on the clock, he didn't sign up to serve only when it was safe or easy or warm out. sergeant renfro agreed to serve all the people passing through, every day. the days when people were happy with police, and the days when some other officer, some other place, made it harder for people to trust the good ones.
they are almost all good ones. >> you have told us that you like big, bold ideas. that is why you should read denverite, the online news start up, there are competition-- they are our competition, but not if you have to choose between denverite and next and we love the series "one big crazy denver idea." we caught up with the first thinker they featured to explore his plan toha >> just popped into my head, how to make cities better, that is watt i want to do. my proposal is replace spear boulevard with a park between colfax and downing and create a place for people, not cars, i am chris jones, i came up with the idea thinking about park space in the city. how we use cherry creek and it is a great amenity in the city but cut off by 8 lanes of traffic. this could happen if there was
block-long parks at street level and they would all be connected underground by the river channel and the bike path. i think losing spear boulevard and replacing with park space would create places for people, not just cars, there is a possibility removing speer could help traffic. it cuts off neighborhoods, there is a lot of dead end streets, it is hard to get one side to the other, if we rebuild the street grid we would of 13 intersections, right here in the heart of the city. the idea is not just to remove cars and remove the street and make it more difficult to get one place to another t could be a place for a transit line, cherry creek to downtown. removing it won't happen any time soon but in the fuchwer driverless cars reducing traffic and transit is more widespread i think there could be a opportunity to make it a park space. >> thinking big. get to the chopper.
somebody use that terrible line? they are installing lines on the western slope. this is xcel's bet that the need for power will increase, they are installing lines between rifle and parachute, there aren't usable roads and that project should be wrapped up in november . we will talk about brandon marshal, not the protest, stay with us. we are talking the fine he got hit with for how he hit newton in the season or, than $24,000. darion stuart reaching for $18,000 from how he hit newton and both will fight the fine, broncos guy, mike klis, calls them as he sees them and thinks the nfl is right. >> reporter: i thought the nfl nailed it, there were 4 hits to the helmet on cam newton. 2 guys didn't get finedism that was von miller and shaq barrett. the league correctly determined that those were accidental,
unintentional, so they don't get docked. that was right. brandon marshal got the biggest fine, i thought that was correct because brandon marshal launched. he was in a separate category than darion stuart. marshal launched left on 2 feet and was charged with launching and illegal use of the helmet. darion stuart got a $18,000 fine, marshal got the $24,000. stuart's was less because he got a infraction. i thought they both got the right and i tell you, i know everyone is saying these guys make a lot of money, but just like a speeding ticket, no one likes to get a speeding ticket $100, that is a lot of money to these guys and they are going to appeal. >> our mike klis there, broncos huddle starts for the season tonight right after next. there is a new chick-fil-a at dia, con course b, i bring it

humanity. for next, i am christine noel. >> doctors expect that taylor has 4 more months of aggressive treatment. after that point, everybody's stress level should come down. never underestimate the power of a gesture like that or this, 2 kids dropped off notes at the parker police station, emily wrote "i feel bad about what is happening this year because people keep shooting police and are not appreciating what you guys do. i know you guys are just trying to protect us." i simple act of kindness but made some people's day at parker pd, the officers posted them on the facebook page writing "your support and appreciation, humbling." the last 2 stories are not to suggest that law enforcement officers are perfect. they will be the first teal tell you-- to tell you they make mistakes, they try not to with the swat team. grand junction police and mesa were looking, they broke down a
