Thank you Chip Bergh

My eight year old grandson fears being shot at school thanks to the recent and continuing gun violence in our schools.

He experienced two lock downs at his elementary school in Denver, Colorado this spring.

His school was closed when the Columbine copycat appeared on the scene and again when a shooting occurred at another school.

He is eight years old.

Lox & Bagel

The bagels at Spielman Bagels are delicious.

There’s nothing like lox, a bagel and cream cheese with a side of capers and tomato slices.

I could eat them everyday!

Thank you Spielman Bagels!
