Sara Flint falls to the ground as she misses out on a seat during a 65 person game of musical chairs outside the Ivywild School Thursday, August 8, 2013 to support the El Paso County Head Start Program, which provides children living in poverty with a place to attend preschool. Sequestration cuts forced Head Start to close five classrooms and 142 slots this year. The musical chairs were taken from the classrooms that closed and were painted by Head Start students. Events like the musical chairs have raised enough money to regain 14 of the lost slots. Michael Ciaglo, The Gazette
