    Safety is your number 1 concern when driving, and it’s even
more important – if that’s possible – when you’re traveling with
children. The proper car seat is crucial. Here’s how to choose one
that protects your most precious cargo:
• Check the safety label. Make sure it meets or exceeds feder-
al safety requirements for carrying children.                                      Premier Care with the Compassion Your Pet Deserves.
• Be wary of used seats. A previously owned seat that’s more
than six years old may not be safe. Look for missing parts, cracks,       Full Service Medical Care and Surgery
or other signs of wear and tear. Call the manufacturer to ask about
                                                                                                Founded in 1984
durability and recalls.
• Get the seat that fits your child. Infant seats are designed for
children from birth to about 20-35 pounds. You’ll need a front-fac-               Monday – Friday: 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.

80 pounds. Keep careful track of how big your child is.
• Learn the safety belt test. When your child is about 13 years
old, he or she may be ready to ride with just a seat belt. Do the              303-973-4200                            www.dcah

ride low on his or her hips? Does the shoulder belt lie on the
child’s collar or shoulder? Does the child sit comfortably with
seat belt and shoulder strap correctly fastened? If any of the
answers to these questions are no, keep the child in a safety seat
until he or she has grown sufficiently.

Your HOA At Work
    The Columbine Knolls South II Homeowners’ Association,
and in particular, the Board of Directors, works very hard to con-
stantly improve the community. This involves many, many hours
of effort and all of these people, since the HOA was formed in
1984, do this work on a voluntary basis. Why, because they want
to continue to make the neighborhood a great place to live.
    The most recent example is the entrance to the community at
Chatfield and Yukon. The Board made the decision to have an
irrigation system installed so that the two planters below the
signs, can be used. Up to this point, very little has been planted
because there was no access to water. By coordinating this work
with Jefferson County, the cost to the community is substantially
decreased. For example, there are no tap fees involved and these
fees can be very, very expensive.
                                                                            Steve Travers

Yukon and the Board will have the electrical work done on the                   #1 Real Estate Agent

Project schedule allows. In addition to the lighted signs at the
entrance, it will also allow us to have lights during the holiday
