The Nuremberg Trials
Seventy years after the world brought charges against individuals for their actions in World War II, crimes against humanity are still part of the fabric of the world in which we live (ISIS, Syria, etc.). Join Active Minds as we look back at the series of trials known as the Nuremberg Trials and trace its impact on the creation of the International Criminal Court and how the world views war crimes. We will discuss how this legacy applies to events in the modern world as well as the current challenges of implementing this area of international law.
Thursday, Jan. 26, 6:45–7:45pm
The most popular sport in America, football is both entertainment and big business. Join Active Minds as we trace the history of the game from Johnny Unitas to Peyton Manning, telling a few of the great stories of the game along the way. We’ll also cover some of the sport’s current challenges and opportunities, including player concussions and the rise of fantasy football.

Snow Removal Policy
During Major Snow Events as defined by current Denver City & County standards, the Stapleton MCA will initiate its emergency snow removal plan for the alleys along with the city’s plan for neighborhood streets. In the event of a major snow event, the snow removal plan will include the continuous use of heavy equipment, light equipment and hand work to remove the snow from alleys, intersections and major pedestrian paths. Alley work will be limited to the removal of enough snow from the alleys so residents can access their garages. This emergency-only procedure involves attempting to open up a single drive lane through each alley in the community. The drive lanes will not be scraped down to pavement, to eliminate the need to truck any snow off-site.
This procedure does not negate individual property owners from participating in the snow removal during these types of storms. Although we are unable to address the complete removal of snow on the roads, it is our goal during major snow events to remove enough material to allow for some level of travel in and out of the alleys. Paths and parks are done to open up some level of pedestrian travel. We will continue to address all the pocket parks and pathways to ensure that they are as snow free as possible to promote pedestrian access throughout the community. For detailed information about the snow removal policy, visit our website at www.stapletoncommunity.com.
