Stop down to O'Brien Park on Sunday, Aug. 5 for the big jazz band sound of the Denver Municipal Band.  The DMB was founded in the late 1860s by Alex Sutherland, bugler at the "Charge of The Light Brigade." Surviving the ordeal, he settled in Denver where he was active in many of the city's early musical activities.   The staple of DMB activity remains the "century plus" tradition of summer concerts. Presented in accessible parks settings, these family gatherings are entertained by the areas leading professional players, including many principal players of the Colorado Symphony Orchestra. In addition to the full 40-piece concert band, the DMB family of ensembles includes a 17-piece jazz band, jazz combo, brass band, plus woodwind and brass quintets. These regularly present concerts in sc...

In recent weeks there have been four businesses in Parker that have been the victims of window/door smash burglaries. In all cases, the window or glass door was smashed with a rock and cash was taken from the cash register and the back office. In one case the suspect(s) turned over a desk causing all of the computer equipment to fall to the floor. In another case computer equipment was pushed off the desk.   There have been several similar incidents in Franktown and Castle Rock within the last several months. These incidents are occurring mainly in the early morning hours of Saturday and Sunday, between 0030-0300 hrs.  Increased patrols will be conducted in areas identified as likely target areas by the Parker PD.

Denver is Hot - Where Do you go to Cool Off? We broke a record yesterday for the date with a high of 100 in Denver.  Yikes!  And its still June!  They are predicting 99 for today and although its supposed to cool down a little throughout the week, its still hot.  When my family gets hot, we love to go swimming.  But to add a bit more excitement, they love the water parks.  And I get to be a kid too when we go.   Fortunately the Denver area has plenty of them.   Here are a few of our favorites: Pirates Cove, Englewood - located on Belleview across from Cornerstone ParkPirates Cove is large enough to have a wide range of fun but small enough that it just isn't "too" big.  My kids love Pirates Cove - they float for hours on the lazy river and love the giant slides.  They also enjoy heading...

The Parker Fair was great yesterday.  I saw many friends and enjoyed the rides. The food was great too. There has been a lot of excitement around the Parker County Fairgrounds as the improvements and renovations have developed. The 2007 Parker County Fair was the first fair on the newly transformed fairgrounds up the hill. As a result, every area of the fair was positively impacted.  Colorado Relocation:http://www.homesandpeople.com/relocation.html
