Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Last week, we told you a story involving Carol "Chay" Burdick, a Boulder resident going to court against her landlord after she was told to remove an Easter display featuring marshmallow Peeps or face eviction.

Unfortunately, we'll have to wait before this sure-to-be-a-landmark legal case is resolved. A two-day trial was scheduled to begin today, but the Boulder Daily Camera reports that it's been pushed back to June 22.

A call to John Pineau, Burdick's lawyer, hasn't been returned at this writing; when and if it is, we'll update this blog. We certainly hope to hear a peep out of him, seeing as how the other Peeps will have to remain silent for almost three more months.

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
