Euphoria overwhelmed his senses when he saw that he had won."It's the greatest feeling in the world," said Okelberry, adding that he's already looking forward to defending his title next year as a senior. "Seeing everyone in the other lanes super close to me and then looking up and seeing I barely out-touched them is probably the greatest feeling ever. … It's nice having that feeling of a'plishment."The Colorado legislature this week appropriated nearly $2.07 million in'pensation for five property owners and a utility'pany affected by the Lower North Fork fire.This brings the total paid by the state to $4.9 million among 16 claimants.The March 22, 2012,wholesale Coach Grade Sunglasses sale from homepage. controlled burn that became the Lower North Fork fire, which killed three people, was set by the Colorado State Forest Service doing watershed-protection work on land owned by Denver Water in the Jefferson County foothills near Conifer.
