Colfax Avenue Walk of Fame: Bill Frisell

Today we are inducting legendary guitarist/East High graduate Bill Frisell into the Colfax Avenue Walk of Fame and Museum, and this poster is going on the wall. My favorite work of his was with the Ginger Baker Trio. One of their albums was called "Falling Off the Roof", and I was actually at Ginger Baker's house when he fell off the roof.

Get to Know Your Neighbors! Great advice fro...

Get to Know Your Neighbors! Great advice from the Lowry Community Master Association! Neighbors, please make sure you know the name and contact information of (at least) your immediate neighbors. Knowing how to get in touch with your neighbors helps make your neighborhood and street safer. They have created a simple contact sheet, which you can use. Here are some real-life situations that highlight why this is important: Denver Police have reported many garage doors left open by residents who were not at home. Criminals drive neighborhoods looking for open garage doors - it takes seconds and garage theft is reported weekly by your neighborhood residents. Know how to alert your neighbor to a garage door left open and know who to call if you suspect you left your own garage door open. Make sure your neighbors know how to reach you, especially when you are out of town. 'Tis the season...for package theft from porches. If you know an important package has been delivered and you may not be home for a while, send a text to your neighbors to see if anyone is home to grab it for you. Criminals that have robbed a house have hidden in neighbors' yards while police search for them. Know how to alert your neighbors to on-going criminal activity. When a few homes are easy targets for theft and other crimes, it attracts crime to the entire neighborhood. The Denver Police Department illustrates over and over again how absolutely critical it is to know your neighbors and how to reach them. Start getting involved with your neighborhood by coming to neighborhood meetings every month the Denver Police Department is there every month. Next one is November 21 at 6:30 PM at 14th and Tamarac, close enough to walk to.

Charlie Chan Village
