Denver’s marijuana tax money being used to fund local projects

DENVER — Aging irrigation systems are getting replaced. Historic sites will soon be restored. Get ready to see positives changes popping up around Denver. But how the projects are being funded may surprise you.

FOX 31: “What do pot and playgrounds have in common?”

“Hopefully nothing. Haha,” mother, Cassie Hart said.

One is helping pay for the other. The marijuana industry in Denver brings in millions of dollars annually in tax revenue. But this year, for the first time, the Denver Parks and Recreation department is benefiting big. They are receiving four million dollars in funding.

“This is where they started to build out the benches for the seating that would eventually become the stadium of Red Rocks today,” Shannon Dennison, Cultural Resource Administrator with Denver Mountain Parks said.

The very men who built the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre lived in nearby barracks during the Great Depression.

“The Civilian Conservation Corps was based here. There were about 200 young men who were out of work in the country who came here,” Dennison said.

Built in the 1930s, time has weathered the Mount Morrison Civilian Conservation Core Camp.

“You can see areas of the window where they’ve been nicked, where we have peeling walls, the glass is broken. You can see some sag in the roof and some of the buildings sink into the ground over time,” Dennison said.

But now $500 thousand dollars of Denver’s marijuana tax revenue will help restore history.

“It’s really going to give us the ability to keep this place going for another hundred years,” Dennison said.

$600 thousand dollars of the pot tax is allocated to Sloan’s lake to repair the boardwalk. Parks and Rec said it has structural issues that will be fixed at the Northeast corner.

$750 thousand dollars will pay for a new irrigation system at Harvard Gulch north.

$400 thousand dollars will give the park at Asbury and Tejon, a major facelift. It’s located on the southern end of Denver. The redesign includes more playable space for park users while also improving the functionality of the waterway and basins that capture water after the rain to improve water quality before it enters south Platte river.

“Brick that is falling apart, people damaging and vandalizing the structure. We’ve got trees growing out of it,” Scott Gilmore, Executive Director of Parks and Planning for the City of Denver said.

$1.7 million dollars will fund phase three of Sullivan Gateway, to restore the crumbling, 101 year-old terra cotta walls. They are located on the north side of Colfax, near East High School. It was built in 1917.

“We definitely want to make this a beautiful entrance to our crowning jewel park in the city of Denver,” Gilmore said.

So the next time you sit at a park bench or head to a Red Rocks concert, it could be the pot tax that’s keeping these spots in top condition.

“No matter what your stance is on marijuana, those tax revenues are coming back to the Parks and Rec department to help us get projects done that would not have been done before,” Gilmore said.

Digital Dentistry at Southpoint of Durham, North Carolina Makes it Easy for Patients to Book a Visit

DURHAM, N.C., May 11, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Digital Dentistry at Southpoint is now offering patients the ability to book an appointment online.

Dr. Gary Schlotterer, the owner of Digital Dentistry at Southpoint, has always been on the cutting edge of dental technologies and techniques. After getting feedback from patients about the difficulties of waiting for open business hours to make an appointment, Dr. Schlotterer went looking for a solution.

He found that solution in an online scheduling platform called LocalMed. LocalMed allows patients to see Dr. Schlotterer’s schedule in real time and select the appointment that works best for them. This new tool is a button, on the website, that lets the patient view what appointments Digital Dentistry at Southpoint has open that week.

There are typically several slots left open during the week exclusively for patients that prefer to book online. But, there is no guarantee that the open appointments are recurring every week.

This online appointment tool is simple to use. You can see the openings by visiting the website at (just click on the Make An Appointment button), their Facebook page, the Google business listing, and even on some insurance carrier’s sites.

The great thing about instant real-time online scheduling is that it gives patients options. You can still call the office during business hours and speak to one of the staff, you can email the office, or you can book instantly online, even from your phone.

The ability to schedule a visit 24 hours a day is helpful to many folks, including busy families. A mother with three children once told Dr. Schlotterer, she wanted to make an appointment for her daughter at 7:30 pm (when the office is closed) because at 7:30 am (when the office is open), she’s busy running the kids to school and doesn’t have time to call.

Well, now that problem is solved. With online scheduling, it is now as easy to book a visit to Digital Dentistry at Southpoint as it is to buy a plane ticket or buy toothpaste on Amazon.

Whether you are in need of regular teeth cleaning, a dental filling, a cosmetic enhancement like teeth whitening, or emergency dental services, you can get the best in dental service with a friendly and personal touch from Dr. Gary Schlotterer at Digital Dentistry at Southpoint in Durham, North Carolina.

Broncos sign former Raiders punter Marquette King to three-year deal

The Denver Broncos have signed free agent punter Marquette King to a three-year contract, the team announced on Thursday.

AFC West rival Oakland released King on March 30, parting ways with the popular and productive punter, whose social media presence was just as large as his punts were booming. While the Raiders did not offer a reason for cutting King, there were whispers that new head coach Jon Gruden’s old-school ways might not have jibed with King’s larger-than-life personality, especially for a punter.

King, 29, originally signed with the Raiders as an undrafted free agent in 2012 and the team signed him to a five-year, $16.5 million contract extension in 2016.

Last season, Pro Football Focus ranked him third among all punters, and he finished third in the NFL in net punting average at 42.7 yards.

Since 2013, when he took over for Shane Lechler in Oakland, King is second in the league in that time frame in total punts (426), eighth in gross average (46.8 yards), eighth in net average (40.8), third in punts inside the 20-yard line (168) and first in punts inside the 10-yard line (65).

Family Dentistry Brings Smiles, Laughs to Their San Juan Capistrano Office

The father-daughter dental team of Kaban Dental Group is serving up smiles and laughs at their family-owned business in San Juan Capistrano.

Lawrence Kaban, who jokingly calls his family’s practice a “necessary evil,” has been practicing out of the San Juan Capistrano office since 2004. Lawrence took over the Kaban office in 2004 from his also-dentist brother, Gerald, who decided to go back into the Air Force after opening the office on Paseo Adelanto in 1989.

The duo, father Lawrence Kaban, 69, and daughter Kelly Kaban, 30, have been working together since 2017 since Kelly finished dental school.

“Patients really like (the duo) because we joke around a lot and my dad likes telling stories,” Kelly said. “They come for the company and catching up. We work well together, I’m coming out of school with new things I’ve learned and (my father) has all of the experience. It’s a good combination.”

The dentist family’s roots started when Gerald and Lawrence went to Loma Linda for dental schooling, years before Kelly’s graduation also from Loma Linda in 2017. Since her father was an alumnus, Lawrence was able to hand Kelly the diploma and he also facilitated her first job in dentistry.

Kelly, who studied molecular environmental biology at the University of California-Berkeley, said the switch to dentistry has been great so far because of relationships created with patients. Some patients—which include prominent San Juan Capistrano families of multiple generations—date back to when Gerald first opened Kaban Dental Group nearly 30 years ago.

“We spend a lot of time with our patients,” Lawrence said. “They become family friends.”

In addition to creating a positive, good-humored environment—which Lawrence and Kelly agree can reduce anxiety of their patients, especially those who are fearful of dentistry work—every couple of months, the father-daughter team does free clinic dentistry work in Santa Ana for low-income patients.

To learn more about the Kabans, visit their office at 32124 Paseo Adelanto, Ste. 2 in San Juan Capistrano, or go to their website at

Parents who kiss children on lips before baby teeth develop may spread harmful bacteria, dentist argues

INDYPULSEParents who kiss children on lips before baby teeth develop may spread harmful bacteria, dentist argues

A dentist has advised that parents should refrain from kissing their children on the lips, particularly before their baby teeth have developed, as they could spread harmful bacteria to their young ones.

The debate over whether it’s appropriate for parents to kiss their children on the lips is a constant source of conversation.

While many argue that there’s nothing wrong with parents showing their affection in this manner, there are supposedly certain health risks that parents need to become more aware of.

Tom Brady kisses 11-year-old son on the lips sparking debate

Baby teeth are particularly susceptible to infection, as they don’t have the strength to withstand the damaging effect of bacteria.

“Baby teeth have a different type of enamel and dentine to adult teeth,” Dr Richard Marques, celebrity dentist at Wimpole Street Dental in London, explained to The Independent.

“The enamel is much thinner on baby teeth. It is not as strong as adult enamel so is more likely to decay.”

The transfer of saliva between individuals can always increase the likelihood of spreading illness.

However, parents need to be especially wary with their young children.

“Saliva transfer from parent to child is a risk as this can spread bacteria (such as streptococcus mutans) from adult to child,” said Dr Marques.

“This bacteria can cause decay of baby teeth.

“It can even affect the soft tissues and gums before the baby teeth have developed!”

There are a variety of afflictions that can be spread from mouth-mouth contact, including the cold or flu and viruses such as cold sores, which are caused by the herpes simplex virus-1 (HSV-1).

Dr Marques suggests that parents refrain from sharing cutlery with their children, blowing on their food or kissing them on the lips.

There are a number of things parents can do to ensure the optimal dental health of their children.

These include not keeping all of your toothbrushes in one container, making sure your child doesn’t swallow the toothpaste, reducing their sugar intake and taking them for regular dentists checks.

“Take your child to the dentist regularly (they can go to the dentist as early as six months when the first tooth comes through),” Dr Marques advised.

“By age two to three they should be attending the dentist every six months to check for cavities (and check how well their teeth are developing!).

“Prevention is the key. We would rather help children to not get cavities in the first place!"
