It was brought to the attention of The Trails staff that there was a patron  using the pool that has now come down with whooping cough.  They say this person was at that pool between October 11 and October 20th.  The incubation period is 7-10 days. 

There has been a very sharp increase of Pertussis in Colorado.

Police in Aurora say two men tried to grab a woman and drag her into their car at S. Chambers Rd. and E. Florida Ave. last week. She escaped.

Then Monday, two men tried to lure a young girl into their car less than half a mile away at E. Louisiana Ave. and S. Idalia St. while she waited for her school bus. She knew just what to do and she has some advice for other kids.

October 11, 2012 - Denver Metro Colorado/CDOT Region 6 - DENVER - Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) maintenance crews in the Denver metro area have dusted off their winter boots, gloves and snow plows in anticipation for the first significant snowfall.

While most of us may not be quite ready for snow and cold weather, CDOT crews are prepared for the winter ahead.

This year, 248 maintenance employees will continue to use a variety of equipment, snow removal products and technology to battle the winter conditions on Denver metro area highways. During snow events, CDOT crews will work 12-hour shifts, even on holidays and weekends, until the roads are clear of snow and ice.
