Through rain, sleet and snow, Rockport mail carriers deliver — until now, anyway. And it wasn’t the rain, sleet or snow that stopped some of them.

Nearly every day over the last five months, an average of 10 turkeys — led by a pair of male “ring leaders” — have been chasing and attempting to peck a postal worker on his route along Marmion Way and South Street.

Attn. Parkland Library Staff: Are you ready?

There wasn’t time to look up any books on obstetrics before a woman gave birth in the Denver Public Library.

Library spokeswoman Celeste Jackson says the woman walked into the library, said she had been riding a city bus and was in labour.

She gave birth just inside the library entrance.
