The weekend is so close you can practically smell it. Or maybe that's your aftershave.
Today in The Latest Word: • Three businesses expanding operations in Denver. Really... • Is Jay Cutler the reincarnation of Jeff George? • Advice to American journalists looking for work: Learn to speak German. • Is KOOL 105's loss Cruisin' Oldies' gain? • The Rocky Mountain News throws one heck of a migil.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. 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. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
