Wake-Up Call: The sky's the limit for Jeff Peckman

When John Hickenlooper was a favorite to take Ken Salazar's Senate slot, local politicos slobbered over the idea of a winner-take-all race for the Denver mayor's seat in May. But Michael Bennet's appointment to the Senate ended that game of musical chairs, and now the last outstanding issue that might have sent Denverites to the polls in a few months is also on hold.

Last year, Jeff Peckman had proposed a ballot initiative requiring that Denver establish an Extraterrestrial Affairs Commission, to prepare this city for dealing with visitors from the skies. But with Barack Obama now in office, Peckman is more confident of openness on the federal level regarding the "disclosure of UFO/extraterrestrial information," and so has put his local proposal on hold... for now. "I would say I'm only 51 percent confident, so I'm not abandoning the ballot initiative," says Peckman.

In the meantime, he'll continue to disclose UFO info in his role as the resident Ufologist for the Denver Examiner. Watch the skies.
