tripli t voters will decide in november. three is a charm except when it comes for the broncos. deciding who will be the starting quarterback is not the luckiest of assignments. put me in, coach. >> some fans gave us there. we heard from the coach and now we want your opinion. it's known for its beauty and someone tried to ruin it. the search for two vandals. it's been burning for two months. now we know how the beaver creek fire got started. the message from a teacher
a national conversation. 9news starts now. coloradans will soon decide whether to raise the tobacco tax by roughly 300%. smokers are paying $0.84 in taxes per pack. initiative approved for the ballot would raise that to about $2.60 per pack. 9news reporter whitney wild joins us to explain why. >> reporter: a campaign for a healthy colorado is pushing thbi the main purpose is to stop young people from smoking. one dr. we spoke with says compared with other states, raising the tobacco tax in colorado has been a long time coming. >> we are now the 38th highest tax in the country. >> reporter: dr. davidoff is the president of the american heart association denver and is
the tobacco tax in colorado. >> we know the tax in colorado has not kept pace with inflation. >> reporter: the proposal would increase taxes on cigarettes by $1.75 per pack. and other products by 22% with a goal of raising more than $315 million. the bill would put that money back into tobacco education, research and would even help pay back student loans for health professionals in rural areas. supporters say the purpose is to stop young people from smoking. >> tobacco tax is one of the most effective ways to prevent youth the first place. >> smoking is bad for you. >> reporter: jackie ward picked up smoking six months ago. he stopped short of calling it unfair. >> you can't buy something without getting text. i don't think you can make a case for its fair or not. >> reporter: demetrius graham started smoking at 18. he is now 22 and understands why people are pushing to raise the tax. >> makes me want to quit. yeah. smoking is an expensive habit
raised tobacco tax from $0.20 to $0.84 per pack back in 2004. a business owner who declined to speak with us did say over the phone that he felt like this would force him to close his business. >> that much of his sales from cigarettes? wow. two months after the beaver creek fire started investigators say it was human caused. still burning along the colorado-wyoming border. we have not been told yet how they reached that conclusion. it has since burned more than 37,000 acres, more than 200 firefighters are still working the lines. they say the fire will burn until there is significant snow later in the fall. someone decided the rocks on the lookout not to need their spray paint. someone else got it on video. a whole lot of social media investigators are trying to help deputies track down the vandals. you may have seen this video
for spray painting the rocks. coloradans will rightly be upset around this vandalism but we ran into an out-of-state visitor just as ticked off as any native. >> we shouldn't be disrespectful to everything that we appreciate. a lot of us drive thousands of miles just to see this. i don't want to see the side of some rock tagged with an idiot's logo. i tell them they need to learn how to respect nature. they didn't create that. tear up what you bought and what you created. don't tear up the rest of our stuff. we often blur the spray-painted symbols of prolific taggers around count to avoid giving them attention. these guys appear to have spray- painted words and what looks like a body part and the skill level suggests this is either their first time or they don't know much about english or anatomy. we saved ourselves the trouble of the blur. the driver who rammed a denver police car still hasn't been caught and the truck he could be driving now shouldn't be that hard to spot. it started just before 10:00
pickup near peoria and 39th. the driver ran the police cruiser and then took off. no one was hurt. officers found the black truck abandoned in a lot at evans and holly. surveillance video shows the driver pulling up to another truck and stealing it. >> we heard nothing. i mean, it happened that fast. the truck is still running. so it happened fast. you know, he knew what he was doing. >> police say in a 1998 white ford f2 50 with black flames. it has montana plates, b4813. and of the stolen vehicle only this time there were two children inside. the suv reported stolen from the federal heights area this afternoon. police spotted it, the driver took off and went off the road into a vacant lot. he took off on foot but didn't get far. the young children in the car were safe and reunited with their parents.
how the thief was able to steal the suv. two climbers went up capital peek and needed help getting down once the snow started flying. took a few hours for rescuers to reach them. two rescuers went in via helicopter, one -- climbers reported they were stuck in the snow and heard thunder all around them. climbers now safe, because it's a man from longmont and a woman from ann arbor, michigan. also snow reported peaks above telluride, riders on the train at pike's peak can vouch for that. it has been snowing on americans mountain for the past several days although it is too warm for much of it to stick. that of course will start changing over the next month. the weather headlines in the metro area are the storms popping up in and around aurora this morning or this evening rather, time-lapse shows a little rain coming out of the dark clouds, not enough to put a dent in one of the driest months of august we've seen in denver.
chances increase as we get into the week a bit more. three is usually considered a lucky number. and it could prove to be just the kind of death the broncos need in their quarterback lineup. with a third preseason game a few days away coach gary kubiak says trevor siemian will start against the l.a. rams. so with no clear answer on who will start the regular season, reporter victoria sanchez asked a few fans their opinions. >> sanchez protection. >> reporter: the broncos have a lot to live up to and with two preseason games left the big question remains, who is the qb? >> what are their names? >> reporter: here are the three choices. former new york jets, last year's third string quarterback, and the rookie. >> paxton lynch is the best athlete. >> reporter: to choose? >> paxton and then sanchez. >> sanchez has the experience. he fumbles too much.
seems to be the one that he is young and he's got the guts, though. >> reporter: okay. let's let a neutral party chime in. >> i'm from switzerland. >> reporter: perfect. andre doesn't follow the broncos but he should have some insight. >> it doesn't matter which quarterback. >> peyton manning wasn't the greatest last year and we still won. >> reporter: the defense might have the pressure on them again. who >> put me in, coach. >> reporter: you think you'd do a better job leading the broncos once the regular season starts, get your name on your jersey. how about this one? sanchez with a few tweaks. sanchez, 9news. denver is 1-1 in the preseason. luckily those don't count. two more games to iron out the case before going head-to-head with the panthers. and you know they are not too happy with how the last matchup went. i know there are plenty of
twitter. close call between paxton lynch and trevor siemian. lynch came out on top with 41%. sanchez came in last with just 21%. >> yeah. sanchez did not leave a good impression. but we'll see because on our 9:00 newscast we had a little different outcome on that. so we'll have to see what happens on this one. that's their opinion. we invite you to give yours, consider it an early season warm-up to play armchair coach. go to 9news.com/for now. mark sanchez, trevor siemian paxton lynch against the panthers. voting is open on 9news.com/vote now. we will start adding those up and have the results in just a few minutes. >> looks like we've got trevor siemian at 50%, paxton lynch at 50%. mark sanchez with a goose egg. >> now there's a few more people coming in. these can say -- change so dramatically. >> we went to -- okay. we're going to come back and
going to wait this out. we'll make sense in a minute. >> hold on. >> i think they broke the internet. to afford a home in denver you need to be making east coast money or west coast money. in denver these days even if you put down 20%, you still need to make more than $72,000 a year to afford the mortgage payments. far higher than every college -- not on the coast. the salary needed to buy a home here is currently $20,000 above the national average. parking is a premium on denver street and tonight city council agreed to take on the program by putting more of the burden on developers. normally new buildings do not have to include offstreet parking if they are on small lots. but for the next seven months, new buildings will have to include offstreet parking. the city will look at permanent changes. police arrested a man in lakewood during a drunk driving crackdown.
blood-alcohol content was 1.5 times the legal limit. it was his fifth dui arrest in the state of colorado and his seventh overall. wiley also faces charges for reckless driving, driving with a suspended license and not having insurance. >> if there's any consolation in that, i guess it would be that he was taken off the street again. before someone was very seriously hurt or killed. we law enforcement continue to do what look for them, stop them, arrest them and get them off the street. >> arvada pd and jeffco sheriff's office conducted saturdays saturation patrols. they arrested a total of 18 people. weld county is tracking four cases of travel-related zika virus. twenty-one coloradans caught zika while traveling. experts say colorado itself is too high and dry for the mosquitoes to pass it here.
