Movie review: "Storks" is a bundle of joy.
"Storks" is a bright, friendly family movie with a good heart and offbeat memorable moments.

According to education news website Chalkbeat Colorado, our five largest school districts all have either embarked on or plan to test their schools’ drinking water for lead, taking no chances after the lead-poisoning crisis in Flint, Mich. http://www.milehighmamas.com/blog/2016/09/06/lead-testing-colorado/

I think the lead in schools in Portland, OR in may probably triggered this, as much as the Flint, MI problems.

We've lived in Denver for 12 years and had never been. I was so blown away by the nostalgia, wonderful staff, addictive corn fritters and old-fashioned atmosphere. We'll definitely be back, especially in the summer when I'll be the grounds are lovely.

Really unhappy with Jared's and their mistreatment of the giant pumpkin growers at the annual weigh-off. Not only did they CHARGE us to enter (we're the whole reason people come) but they didn't bother to get ribbons or prizes for the kids, which is the entire reason they work so hard all year long. Unless things change, we will NOT be back and I know of several other growers who will be boycotting due to the poor way this event is run.

I've been going here for years and though I like the doctors and PAs the support staff is horribly unresponsive. Not following up with results, taking forever to get back to my inquiries, etc. Ready to make the switch to another doctor's office.

Fantastic, fantastic, fantastic. We had a surprise party for my 8-year-old son and had all his buddies hide in the trailer. He was ecstatic to not only find them but all his favorite video games. This party will go down in infamy as the best ever. Mike was a pro--so professional and good with the kids. Highly recommend for your next bash!
