President Trump wants a $54 billion boost in defense spending, which he'd come up with by slashing other programs from ranging from diplomacy to the arts. We speak with Mayor John Suthers of Colorado Springs on what this means for the military town. Then, it was a great weekend for skier Michaela Shiffrin of Eagle Vail at the World Cup finals in Aspen. We talk with John Meyer of the Denver Post who covered her win. Plus, music inspired by the National Parks. And, a chef, an entire restaurant and an animal scientist-- each from Colorado-- are up for top food awards.
