Madam Lou Bunch Day is festival honoring Madam Louisa Ann Bunch 1857-1935 of Central City, CO. She was the best known and most voluptuous (weighing 300 lbs) of all the Central City madams back in the old days. Her brothel on Pine Street remained open from 1900-1916. Madam Lou Bunch Day and its bed races honor this Madam who will always be remembered in Central City. She and many of her girls helped nurse many of the miners who were sick and dying in an epidemic. Madam Lou Bunch Day is held the third Saturday every June in her honor.

I move forward and know that I am me now. I put that other life to the side. I keep moving and educating. I bring joy to those who cry. I listen to those who need a friend and I cry in my soul when others still hate and don't love others as themselves. I try to always be positive and never dwell on that which is negative. Being happy and positive keeps you healthy and brings joy to those around you. Thanks for being my friend.
Sammy the Lifesaving Cat, as he is being called, is credited with saving the family dog’s life by fluffing himself up and confronting the bully when an aggressive bigger dog had little Izzy in its mouth.
Sammy raised and puffed out his fur and approached the big dog, then led it on a chase after it dropped Izzy to the ground. Sammy escaped without injury, and Izzy is being treated for her injuries at Animal Emergency and Critical Care Clinic in Toledo, OH, where the incident occurred. While Izzy’s injuries were life threatening, she is expected to make a full recovery.
Dr. Kittsen McCumber of the Animal ER said, “The big dog saw the cat and dropped Izzy and went after the cat. When that happened, the family was able to get Izzy to safety. The cat got away by running up a tree which truly saved Izzy’s life. The family said, ironically, Izzy chases the cat all the time, but the kitty must have felt some loyalty and ran over there and squared off with the bigger dog.”

On Memorial Day as I walked the grounds of Fort Logan National Cemetery in Denver I thought a lot about patriotism. I looked at the graves before me and then thought that there were 98,000 souls who have gone on before me in this very cemetery I was visiting to pay my respects to fallen soldiers and veterans. Some had fallen in combat and many had served and died as old men who were proud to be veterans and to have served the United States of America in her Armed Forces. The immensity of gratitude I felt towards them was profound and intense. Because of them, I and millions of Americans have freedom and are blessed to live in the best nation in the world. I write to this to honor those brave military men and women who have served and who serve the United States of America.
