"Mimi" The Elephant At The Denver Zoo Since 1961 Is Going Into Hospice Care
Mimi the Elephant has been at the Denver Zoo since 1961 and is One of Oldest Elephants in North American Zoos. Mimi is aging and her health is fading. Soon, the Denver Zoo says that this special Elephant will go into what they call "Hospice Care."  Mimi was born in India, and while Mimi's birth date is not known the Zoo believes she is at least 53 years old, making her one the oldest elephants in North American zoos.


Denver Zoo
 
"We have had the honor of caring for Mimi since 1961. She has been a tremendous ambassador for generations of Denver Zoo guests and a beloved member of our community," says Denver Zoo President/CEO Craig Piper.  
Piper went on to say:

"Although we will continue to offer her the best of care and hope she rebounds, the time has come to allow her to live her remaining time with the dignity and respect she so richly deserves. Mimi has good days and bad days and we have no way of knowing how much time she has left. However, no matter how much we wish, nothing will turn back time and give her the health she enjoyed in her youth."

According to the Association of Zoo's & Aquariums Asian Elephant Species Survival Plan, the average life expectancy for female Asian elephants in zoos is 46.9 years old.


Denver Zoo

Zoo staff will be monitoring Mimi's health very closely and keep her as comfortable as possible. According to the Denver Zoo, Mimi continues to be loved by everyone in Denver and Denver Zoo will continue to provide updates when appropriate.

Telemarketer Threatens To Blow Up Colorado Home + The Do Not Call List
We've all had those calls from telmarketers in the past, but this time a telemarketer threatened a Colorado resident in Mead, saying they would blow up their house after refusing to buy a product, according to an article. Tuesday evening a telemarketer called a home in Mead around 6:30 p.m. and threatened to blow up the home after a family refused to buy a product they were trying to sell. Weld County Sheriff’s Office along with Dacono Police evacuated several homes in the Mead neighborhood and searched the house but nothing was found.

When the homeowner said he was not interested in the product for sale, the telemarketer said there was a bomb in that house and it would blow it up if anyone left, said Tim Schwartz, spokesman for the Weld County Sheriff’s Office.

The homeowner said the telemarketer had a foreign accent.
"We’re guessing the call didn’t originate in the U.S.," Schwartz said.

[ TheDenverChannel.com ]

Are you on the National Do Not Call List and the Colorado Do Not Call List? It only takes a few seconds to add your number or numbers to help reduce or stop those unwanted calls.

Just a reminder, anyone you currently have an existing business relationship with such as banks or insurance companies can still call you and political organizations and charities still have the right to call you legally.

Scott began his television career in Colorado Springs in 1958 and the popular show was moved to Channel 2, KWGN in 1966 the show ran until 1998, when it was canalled.
Scott created a Colorado legend and legacy as Blinky, a red-nosed, plaid-jacketed, pouty-mouthed goof whose gentle humor made a would-be thief temporarily reform his ways and whose safety tips prompted generations of children to look both ways before crossing the street.

I remember waking up and watching "Blinky's Fun Club" do you? Blinky's special Birthday wish was very popular as he wished Colorado kids a "Happy Birf-Day" with a special song.

Beloved Sea Lion, Bismark At Denver Zoo Passes Away While Undergoing Surgery
A sad day at the Denver Zoo as a beloved Sea Lion passes away while getting prepared for surgery. Bismark was extra special to visitors and zoo staff.

Denver Zoo, Facebook

The Denver Zoo posted the following on their Facebook page Thursday:

Bismarck, a beloved male California sea lion at Denver Zoo passed away under anesthesia on August 22. He was believed to be about five years old. Since his arrival he had been an ambassador to the physically challenged as he was missing his back flippers yet adapted to swim just as easily as the zoo’s other sea lions.

The post went on to say:

“This was a very surprising loss and our hearts go out to the zookeepers that worked with Bismarck every day,” says Vice President of Veterinary Medicine Scott Larsen. “It is always difficult to lose an animal, especially one as amazing as Bismarck, but to lose one during a medical procedure that was intended to help him is especially hard.”

Colorado Still The Fittest State In The Country
Lately, I have been focusing on being more acitive, but I'm still not as active as I'd like to be. I have been working on eating better and cooking more. Colorado remains the fittest state in the country, according to a report from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. That means 20.7 percent of Colorado residents have a body mass index higher than 30. Thank goodness for so many days of sunshine in Colorado and all the great outdoor activities in our backyard from hiking to sking to swimming and riding bikes.
