    Street Fraternity is a crucible for violent young men in rough neighborhoods such as this in Denver and Aurora. Their families fled some of the world's worst conditions and made it to America as refugees. Of the 40-50 kids that attend Street Frat many hang out, box, lift, study and are making the grades and aspire to go on to college.

    One of the occupational hazards of dressing like Elvis is having a homeless guy throw you into a headlock and refuse to let go until you sing him a song. "I said, 'What do you want to hear, 'Please Release Me?'" recalled Jonny Barber, the Elvis impersonator in question.

The new sidewalk fund is a positive step, but it won’t solve all of the city’s sidewalk problems. It won’t pay for any new sidewalks or expansions of sidewalks that are too narrow — just repairs to sidewalks that are falling apart. https://denver.streetsblog.org/2017/11/09/denver-will-help-residents-pay-for-sidewalk-repairs-starting-next-year/

    Denver Will Help Residents Pay for Sidewalk Repairs Starting Next Year
    The new system will repair crumbling walking infrastructure neighborhood by neighborhood. Denver City Council is setting up a fund to help residents pay for repairs to sidewalks abutting their properties. The infusion of public support for sidewalk repair should lead to better walking conditions in the city's poorer neighborhoods, where property owners struggle to maintain sidewalks themselves.

Hi East Colfax! I wanted to drop a note and make sure you are all familiar with the Denver Citizen Oversight Board (COB). The COB practices civilian oversight—an ever-evolving field designed to provide communities with a voice in how law enforcement is conducted. We were voted into the City Charter last year, no doubt with much of your help. Under the Charter, the COB is authorized to make policy recommendations to the Denver Police Department and Denver Sheriff Department. We just launched a Facebook page, because we're hoping to hear more from the community. We hope you'll follow it and share your thoughts on policing, incarceration, and oversight in Denver. We welcome your voices at our bi-weekly board meetings and our quarterly public forums!
