Colleagues help search for missing Colorado angler
RADIUM, ColRADO – Colleagues of a suburban Denver school administrator who disappeared from a raft in the Colorado River have been helping with the search.
Forty-two-year-old Eric Kophs, the director of elementary education for the Cherry Creek School District, fell off a raft Saturday while on a fishing trip with a friend.
Rescue teams called off the search on Monday because of windy conditions and high water.
Kophs lives in Aurora. He was near Radium, about 120 miles west of Denver, when he fell into the river.
A survey showed a good bit of support for local government action to bolster workforce housing in town. For now though, that support stops at supporting a new tax for funding.
