If you're a local independent business person, crafter or artist who would like to show off your wares, Her Story Cafe can help. Her Story Cafe, at 2356 S. Academy Blvd in Colorado Springs, teams up with a local entrepreneur each Saturday. From 1pm to 3pm they can set up a display, offer samples and show and tell folks about their business or their art.

There's no charge for the space, but owner Liz Rozenbaum expects participants to promote their event a couple of weeks out. It's a great way for others to promote themselves and it helps generate traffic and introduce new people to the Cafe.

This past Saturday, Amanda Gentile of Palace Portraits and Photography was on hand as part of a "mini glam session', which included lunch, make-up and a photo shoot.

They're currently booked through March, but if you're interested in booking a Saturday, visit Liz at Her Story Cafe at 2356 S. Academy Blvd (Astrozon and Academy) Tuesday - Friday 7 am - 3 pm
Saturdays 8 am - 3 pm.

The Colorado Springs Flames Football Club celebrates its 25th year as a sports organization in the city of Colorado Springs. The Flames were established in 1987 by Robert (Bob) Harrelson as the Colorado Springs Olympians. In 1988 they joined the Colorado Football Conference (CFC); a football club organization who showcased local teams such as the Air Force Academy Prep School and the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs. Legal issues concerning the team’s original name, Olympians, as being associated with the U.S. Olympic Center, also located in  Colorado Springs, resulted in the name change to the Flames.


What makes this organization so unique is that player participation is based on a system of no pay. Players actually pay the organization to play. This is an act which demonstrates a commitment and love for the game of football. During its twenty-four years as a member of the CFC, the Flames has won eight conference championships and participated in another eight. They have also won four Minor League Football bowl games and have been nationally ranked during several seasons.

During its existence, the organization and its players has participated in numerous community service activities and events such as food drives for local food banks and local Relay For Life cancer walks. The Flames organization is proud to be one of the nations longest continuously operating Minor League Football organizations.

Seasonal play for the 2012 season will begin the first Saturday of May as the CFC plays a Spring/Summer season. Try outs for this year’s team begins March 3, 2012, 3pm at Cheyenne Mountain H.S.  For further information you may go to the organization’s website at www.flamesfootball.com.
