More Denver fans

Hi everyone, this is Paul Cameron at my desk in the WBTV Newsroom.

Breaking tonight—that standoff in Oregon between ranchers and federal authorities has taken a deadly turn in the past two hours.  Four were arrested, including the group’s leader.  One person is dead.  More details coming at 11:00.

Will the Broncos outweigh the Panthers faithful attending the Super Bowl?  According to Orbitz.com there are 146% more Denver fans going to Santa Clara, California than those from Carolina.  Also, airfare and hotels have been jacked up by nearly 113% more than normal during the next 13 days.

Want to go to the Super Bowl?  Reporter Sara-Blake Morgan says you might have to take out a second mortgage to afford the trip.  While airfare and a 3-night stay in a hotel will run you about $2,000, it’s the ticket itself that’s gone astronomical.  Prices for average seats are going in the $4,000-5,000 range.

Republican front-runner Donald Trump says he’s skipping the last GOP debate before the Iowa caucuses.   Trump is critical of Fox News moderator Megyn Kelly who’s been asking touch questions.  Trump claims she is “playing games.”

Also tonight, we’re hearing from Luke Kuechly’s high school football coach.  Knowing Luke, you won’t be surprised to hear what he has to day. 

Please join Eric, Molly Grantham, Delano Little and me for WBTV News at 11:00!
