Former Secret Service member who was assigned to Jacqueline Kennedy Clint Hill and Lisa McCubbin our special in-studio guests to discuss their book Mrs. Kennedy & Me: An Intimate Memoir. They have a slide show presentation and book signing at the Tattered Cover in Lodo starting tonight at 7:30 pm. For four years, from the election of John F. Kennedy in November 1960 until after the election of Lyndon Johnson in 1964, Clint Hill was the Secret Service agent assigned to guard the glamorous and intensely private Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy. During those four years, he went from being a reluctant guardian to a fiercely loyal watchdog and, in many ways, her closest friend. Clint Hill was in the presidential motorcade during the John F. Kennedy assassination. Hill remained assigned to Mrs. Kennedy and the children until after the 1964 presidential election. He then was assigned to President Lyndon B. Johnson at the White House. In 1967, when Johnson was still in office, he became the Special Agent in Charge of Presidential protection. When Richard Nixon came into office, he moved over to be the SAIC of the Vice Presidential Protective Division. In 1972, Hill as promoted to the position of Assistant Director of the Secret Service, responsible for all protective forces. He retired in 1975. Lisa McCubbin is an award-winning journalist who has been a television news anchor and reporter, hosted her own radio show, and spent more than five years in the Middle East as a freelance writer. She is the coauthor of the New York Times bestseller, The Kennedy Detail.
Fire officials in Colorado Springs have long worried about the potential for an out-of-control wildfire within city limits. This summer that scenario materialised, as the blaze that started in Waldo Canyon killed one person and gutted an estimated 347 homes, making it the most destructive wildfire in Colorado's history.
It was the result, said fire officials, of two distinct trends: the rising number of wildfires in recent years, and the growing number of people living in high-risk fire zones.
"This is something we have been talking about for 21 years," the city's deputy fire chief, Tommy Smith, told reporters.
As of now, the focus shifts towards ensuring such a tragedy never happens again, Steve Cox, a former fire chief and adviser to the Colorado Springs mayor, said. "We want to change something in the equation so we don't end up with the same thing that we have now."
But it could require reversing a major demographic trend. Over the last 20 years, quarter of a million people have moved into Colorado's red zones, areas seen as most at risk for wildfires.
More than 1.1 million Coloradans now live in red zones across the state, an investigation by the independent I-News Network found.
