Lakewood High School's Lip Dub Video Gets Katy Perry's Attention [VIDEO]
Lakewood High School put together a lip dub video to Katy Perry's 'Roar' and it got the singer's attention on Twitter! The students at Lakewood High want Katy Perry to come to Denver and perform a concert at Coors Field to raise funds for those affected by the recent Colorado flood.

According to an article from Denver Westword, the video got Katy's attention. 

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.

Denver City Council To Vote On 5 Cent Grocery Bag Fee Monday Night
First it was Boulder, and now Denver might add a grocery bag fee. Tonight, the Denver City Council will vote on a 5-cent grocery bag fee. 

According to an article from the Denver Post, it appears that the bag fee proposal will pass Monday night.

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.

This Week Might Feel More Like September In Colorado
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 Elephant Now Available For Denver Zoo Visitors To See
Billy, the Denver Zoo's newest elephant can now be seen by zoo visitors! 



Denver Zoo
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.
