The Wavves Kick Sand In Your Speakers And Laugh....

Wavves King Of The Beach Album Cover

Remember when summer lasted forever, when you would run from the front doors of your school throwing paper in the air and ripping off your uniform to reveal jean shorts and an offensive t-shirt. You would awake at the crack of dawn with boundless energy, bent on climbing every mountain and breaking at least one skateboard deck a day as you rode a 'Wavve' of immortality and invincibility straight through whatever was considered proper behavior.

Those summers almost always included a partner in crime who beyond bumming your parents out, also had a knack for getting in the most trouble and then smiling when the authorities showed up knowing that the next phrase that came out of his mouth was going to lead to deeper trouble.......enter Nathan Williams, lo-fi infamous leader of the Wavves and all around snot nosed punk who's endless summer began long ago and is continually documented in his music including his newest release, 'King Of The Beach'.

Library Love Story: Diane and David Grey

Deciding to donate landscaping to beautify the Ross-Cherry Creek Branch was about as easy as walking by the building.

We walk in the neighborhood on a regular basis and noticed that not much had been done as far as landscaping. When the branch was under renovations recently, we started talking about how wonderful it would be if the outside of the branch could look as beautiful as the inside.

As the owners of G.E. Enterprises, Inc., a landscape company, we knew we had the expertise to really make a difference in the “curb appeal” of the branch. We contacted the library, got the wheels turning, and completed the project soon after the branch reopened earlier this summer.
