The All That Glitters jewelry store, 2518 W. Colorado Ave. in Old Colorado City, will accept donations for Dream Power Animal Rescue through August.

DVD copies of “The Incident,” a movie shot in Colorado Springs 19 years ago, are available at the Bernideen's shop, 2520 W. Colorado Ave.
The made-for-TV show, starring Walter Matthau, used several Westside locations - including the storefront where Bernideen's is now located.
At the time it was Rogers Bar, which was set up in the movie as a restaurant/meeting place for locals.
Other Westside sites included Bancroft Park, the Garden of the Gods and Fairview Cemetery.
Matthau played a down-on-his-luck lawyer in a small American town during World War II who, against his will, has to defend a German prisoner of war charged with killing one of his friends.
