The Englewood Fire Marshal’s Office is reminding citizens to change the batteries in their smoke alarms when they move their clocks FORWARD on Sunday, March 10, 2019
In conjunction with the annual public education program: “Change Your
Clocks, Change Your Batteries” – citizens are encouraged to change the
batteries in their smoke alarms at least twice a year (at the beginning and end of daylight savings time).
In addition, you should:
For maximum protection, the Fire Marshal’s Office encourages the use of both photoelectric and ionization smoke alarms. Such smoke alarms provide early warning when fire occurs.
Photoelectric alarms quickly sense smoke from smoldering, smoky fires, such as those ignited by a cigarette falling between sofa cushions.
Ionization alarms quickly sense smoke caused by flaming, fast-moving fires, such as a kitchen fire.
Remember you may save your life and the lives of your family members by having operating smoke alarms.

We’re having a 4th of July BBQ this year and I wanted to come up with something different and fun to have for games outside. I saw a fun post on Facebook on how to make traditional inside games into yard games. Here’s a link to the original post from our friends at “This Old House”:
I decided to go for what I thought would be the 2 easiest. My husband and I made yard sized Jenga and Yahtzee.
We also needed some score sheets for Yahtzee which I downloaded here.

Now that you’ve gone through all the hard work of finding your perfect home, it’s time to make an offer. The ‘offer’ is a contract between you, the buyer(s) and the seller(s) and in Colorado is is call the “Contract to Buy and Sell Real Estate”.
When completing the contract with your Real Estate Broker, one of the first decisions you need to make is how you will be holding the title to your new home.
Thanks to Heritage Title for providing this information. Please note: this information is for reference purposes only. How title is vested has serious legal consequences. You should consult an attorney to determine what will work best in your personal situation.
If you are a single person buying a home and you will be holding title by yourself it is called holding title “in severalty”. “In Severalty”, is used when real estate is owned by a single person or legal entity. A sole owner is free to do anything with the property that is within the law—sell it, lease it, gift it, or pass it to heirs without anyone else’s permission.
If two or more people will be holding title to the home, things get a bit more complicated.
Here is an overview of the different ways two or more people can hold title and how ownership is affected. You can also download a pdf of ways to hold title here.
