Golden birthday …

Kale Burke will be 11 years old on Nov. 11, 2011 — that’s right, he turns 11 on 11/11/11. This year’s date has been widely heralded because it is the only time in a hundred years where a double-figured number forms a palindrome, reading the same backward and forward.
Burke was born at Valley View Hospital in Glenwood Springs, Colo., Nov. 11, 2000. Today he is in the fifth grade at Meeker Elementary School and enjoys sports and the outdoors. To celebrate his 11th birthday, Kale will visit Bananas Fun Park in Grand Junction, Colo., according to his mom, Stacey Burke.
