Does the city of Cortez have a high sales-tax rate? That question has come up following a remark made by Montezuma County Commissioner James Lambert. In a recent interview with KSJD’s Austin Cope, Lambert said he’d heard that Cortez has the second-highest sales-tax rate in Colorado. It turns out that isn’t true, but earlier corrections we posted on the KSJD web site also contained some inaccuracies.

In the 1986 NFL AFC Championship game, Denver Broncos wide receiver Mark Jackson caught a touchdown pass from John Elway to send the game into overtime in what became known as "The Drive". KSJD's Tom Yoder caught up with Mark Jackson to talk about "The Drive", how he became part of the Broncos' group of wide receivers known as "The Three Amigos", and why he is making an appearance in Cortez on December 1st.
