It was fate -- sort of. Lakewood High School's lip-dub to Katy Perry's "Roar" was in fact a submission to Good Morning America's call for such entries, but it wasn't the first time the Colorado school had gone viral with its own Perry rendition. In 2011, the school did a take on "Firework," but hadn't produced another video of it's kind until now.
Kerry Perry loved the video so much, she gave props on Twitter.
In Denver, the council is expected to approve the fee that would start in April, directing grocery and convenience stores to charge 5 cents for every bag, paper or plastic, given to a customer. The idea is to entice people to stop using the thin plastic bags and rely on reusable bags instead.
Revenue from the fee would be split, with the city getting 3 cents and the store 2 cents. The city expects to generate $1.7 million the first year, which will be directed at outreach, environmental cleanup and buying reusable bags to give away.

Over the last few days we have seen Coloradoan's come together to help their neighbors and the power of community! Many couples who had weddings planned this month in Colorado, had to quickly change their plans and that is not an easy thing to do. A Facebook Page was created to help connect Colorado couples to wedding resources quickly to continue with their wedding plans.
'Save My Colorado Wedding' is spreading like crazy, and according to the page today, they are overwhelmed with people in need and those that want to help.
It seems we have all been talking about how hot it has been in the last few weeks, with temps in the 90's, it hasn't really felt like September in Denver. It sounds like this week might feel a little bit more like fall is on the way.
Billy, the Denver Zoo's newest elephant can now be seen by zoo visitors!
Billy, the much anticipated new resident of Denver Zoo’s new Toyota Elephant Passage exhibit can now be seen by guests.
“Billy has cleared a mandatory quarantine and with a full clean bill of health, he ventured outside for the first time today. The Denver community has been asking about him regularly. I know they will fall in love at first sight,” says Denver Zoo Director of Communications Tiffany Barnhart.
Denver Zoo imported a male Asian elephant from the Antwerpen Zoo in Belgium in late June. The 5-year-old elephant will support the Association of Zoos and Aquariums Species Survival Plan with valuable genetics as he is not closely related to any elephants in the US. The young bull is the third bull in the zoo's newest exhibit, Toyota Elephant Passage, a $50 million state-of-the-art animal habitat
This elephant was born Feb. 17, 2008 at Dublin Zoo weighing 176 pounds. Denver Zoo took numerous measures to ensure the elephants safe transport back to the United States. To prepare for the elephant's arrival, one zookeeper, one assistant curator, the area curator, two veterinarians, the vice president for animal care and one communications staff member flew in advance to Antwerpen Zoo. One zookeeper arrived more than a month in advance to spend bond with Billy and learn his routine.
