It is that time of year that our beautiful trees in Lowry are providing lush green shade for us, however, this also means it is the time of year that trees need to be pruned. Our HOA guidelines says: “Trees must be maintained and regularly pruned so as not to obstruct pedestrian traffic, sidewalks, alleys or the street. The city of Denver requires that branches overhanging sidewalks and streets provide at least 8′ of clearance for pedestrians, bikes, and vehicles. Generally, deciduous trees need pruning every three to four years. Regular pruning helps create a beautiful street canopy throughout Lowry.” To read all the guidelines on trees click here.
Untrimmed trees present traffic safety issues, can hurt bicyclists, make walkers need to dodge low hanging branches, and scratch, or otherwise harm vehicles.
The image pictured above is of trees that need to trimmed.

What happens when one hasn’t planned very well for retirement? The fading yet formerly hit 60’s and 70’s rock and roll group of Willy Withers, Tina Tumor, and Rickie D. Bones are finding out. These aging rockers, forced to sing for their supper by taking any gigs they can, notice more each day how hard it is to “keep on keepin’ on.” The group forges a new bond as they give the songs of their youth fresh meaning–singing about such aging maladies as weight gain, memory loss, and gastric issues (think about having that first colonoscopy performed to the chorus, “Snake it up doctor, if you twist I’ll shout!”). Together these Boomers learn that while aging “ain’t for sissies,” they’re more than ready, with the help of their beloved rock and roll, to face and to celebrate all the challenges that growing older brings.
The cast includes Deborah Montgomery (Rickie), Shelley McMillion (Tina) and Jay Louden (Willy) with backup by the Emotionett’s Rachel Findley (Perry), Tracey Sanderson (Taylor) and Steven Hartman (Jonas).
