Brighton Family CounselingAt Brighton Family Counseling we understand that your marriage can become muddled, frustrating, or sometimes seem beyond hope. When two lives are brought together, it is the joining of worlds. Each individual brings an intricate history of experiences, as well as unique dreams for the future. Trouble strikes when these stories fall out of harmony, and it is our expertise to get them back in sync. We use proven methods and have helped hundreds of couples achieve the most from their relationship and mend those places of struggle.

The reasons for discord are many, but we all are familiar with the symptoms: blaming, distrust, anger, frustration and hopelessness. Our goal is to help you begin to shift these longstanding patterns that have not gone away on their own. In session, we provide a safe space for open and deep communication so that everyone is heard and given the opportunity for healing. We also take a step back to look at the big picture. Additionally, marriage takes place in the real world, and understanding the environment of life is a key ingredient to success.

The staff at Brighton Family Counseling specialize in marriage counsel, and are experienced in walking couples through their marriage with fresh eyes. We look forward to bringing your marriage the health and wellness that you deserve. Call us today and begin that process now!

The Margolis TeamSome say it’s a blessing that school is starting again. Some say summers are just too short. Do you feel like you have missed out on opportunities to spend time with your friends and family? Well, there are two weeks left to make some fun summertime memories. Don’t wait!

One of the great parts of my business is hearing about the memories people have made in their homes when they put them on the market. Just as wonderful is hearing the excitement in the voices of clients who look forward to start making memories in their new homes.

Getting to know my clients on a personal level is one of the best parts of being a Realtor. I enjoy it when clients become friends who continue to trust me with one of their biggest financial transactions. I like to earn that trust by listening to your specific wants and needs, and then ensuring you feel good about the end result.

Some of you have growing families, and others are becoming empty nesters. If you are thinking about selling your home to better fit your evolving lifestyle, this is a great time because inventory
levels still remain at record lows.

When the time comes for selling, call/text your local trusted real estate adviser, Brian Margolis at 720-352-0454. Until then, have fun creating some last minute summer time memories!

Susan KlineWe are the lucky ones, to be sure! Why, you might ask? The answer is clear. We live in and around an area that has some of the best produce in all of Metro Denver. The fresh produce from the area’s farms is magnificent and available for all of our readers to enjoy! This is one of those times when stopping by a local market daily for fresh sweet corn, fruit and vegetables on the way home from work is a special gift and a great way to stay healthy. Please note the full page ad on page 36 that highlights some of Brighton’s best markets.

Our cover advertiser, Palizzi Farm, will celebrate with their Labor Day Weekend event from September 1st through September 4th. Sunday, September 3rd will be a day of highlighted activities with live music, food, contests, a dunk tank, and Fireworks at dusk. While Palizzi’s vegetables with be available through early October, this is the time to buy the season’s best vegetables at the most reasonable prices to freeze or can for the months when you’re missing the taste of their nutrient packed delicacy. On Saturday, September 2nd, Palizzi Farm will be giving each attendee a free ear of roasted corn in appreciation for their valued support of their market which is 41 years old this year. Don’t miss this wonderful event!

The Brighton BuzzWe’re also going to see many children heading back to school this month. The summer goes way too fast and families will go back to the school schedules that keep everyone on their toes working toward having a successful school year. A number of our advertisers have put in Back to School specials, so read through the magazine to take advantage of this time of year’s best deals.

If you haven’t had an opportunity to enjoy summer yet, there’s still time to do it. Make it a priority to do something you enjoy during this season and create some special memories.

Good Growing This August (for anyone with a garden)

Happy August Days to All!

Your primary care provider can also complete school forms such as asthma action plans, allergy plans and other medication administration forms that may be necessary for the school nurse. Completing your child’s Well Visit in the summer prepares your child for a jump start for the new school year. Please remember to bring in your child’s vaccination records as well as a list of current medications and forms that need to be completed for school in regards to your child’s annual Well Exam.

In addition to providing a yearly Well Exam during the summertime, your primary care pediatrician can also provide school sports physicals at the same time.

Schools out! Time to veg, right? WRONG! Reading is crucial to a childʼs success in and outside of school. According to the National Institute of Health, “when children become good readers in the early grades they are more likely to become better learners throughout their school years and beyond.”

As a parent, what can you do? The following is just a short list of ways to encourage reading over the summer, and to make it fun as well:

  • Encourage book reading, but allow you child shorter, easier “reads” such as comic books, magazines, or story books.
  • Help your child find books on subjects that are of interest to him/her. Make a list of interesting topics and visit your local library. Utilize the librarians and inquire about summer reading programs for children.
  • Model, model, model reading to your children! Children need to see that reading is a lifelong activity that even his/her parents enjoy!
  • Get a second copy of your childʼs book and read along with him/her. You can take turns reading aloud to each other. Reading together encourages discussion of the book.
  • Schedule daily reading time. Set aside at least twenty minutes daily to devote to reading and help your child stick to this reading schedule.

Summer reading does not have to be boring. With a little forethought, you can help your child become a better reader while having fun doing it!

This will be the final article in my series on recent developments in Immigration law. Neither the author nor the editor of the Brighton Buzz take any position or opinion on this issue. As always, our job is to keep you informed.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) very recently made it clear that they will continue to have a presence at local courthouses. Consequently, some have expressed concern that victims of violent crimes or key witnesses that could help the government prosecute violent criminals will not come to court for fear of arrest and deportation.

“Locations treated as sensitive locations under ICE policy would include, but are not be limited to:

  • Schools, such as known and licensed daycares, preschools and other early learning programs; primary schools; secondary schools; post-secondary schools up to and including colleges and universities; as well as scholastic or education-related activities or events, and school bus stops that are marked and/or known to the officer, during periods when school children are present at the stop;
  • Medical treatment and health care facilities, such as hospitals, doctors’ offices, accredited health clinics, and emergent or urgent care facilities;
  • Places of worship, such as churches, synagogues, mosques, and temples;
  • Religious or civil ceremonies or observances, such as funerals and weddings; and
  • During a public demonstration, such as a march, rally, or parade.”
