Best. Festival. Ever.

To declare this year’s Carnation Festival as best-ever would be the understatement of the year. The music was absolutely my favorite part of my festival. Clearly tribute bands are very well supported and loved, from Journey, Led Zeppelin and, of course, the Lizard King and his Doors were absolutely fantastic. Great idea with the second

I Love You, Now Change!

As a real estate broker I always ask those moving to Wheat Ridge: Did you move here because of how we are, or how you’d like us to be? The answers vary of course. We are human beings and change is the constant in our lives. Our meals, our opinions, our clothes and the list

Fix Your House Before You Come For Mine

It was only six years ago when I helped on the Jeffco School Bond initiative. It included details about how much was going to be spent and where. The community was surveyed for priorities and needed changes. The $567 million bond narrowly passed. We were getting new schools, air conditioning in old buildings, lead pipes

Interview With The Mayors

The Neighborhood Gazette is distributed to every door in Wheat Ridge, Edgewater and Mountain View. I invited the mayors of these cities to meet me for a conversation at Stylus and Crate, the Gazette’s official coffee house. When I emailed them, I thought it would take some time before I heard back. I was wrong.

Art in the Barn was really an extension of the many events and programs meant to highlight artists and increase awareness of art.

What’s Wheat Ridge All About?

It was in the summer of 1974 that Roman Halaba left Poland and moved to Colorado. He already knew Theresa, who had moved with her parents back in 1967. She was a student at North High School. In 1975 they had bought a duplex on 44th and Harlan so they could live on one side

Does Exclusivity Breed Bad Service?

UPS, FedEx, DHL or Amazon. Who will Wheat Ridge choose as their exclusive single-package delivery company? All those trucks throughout the day, every day. Just imagine the damage to our roads and noise pollution. 8 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week! Some deliver commercially and some drive all the way to my house

For Goodness Sake

Wheat Ridge has always been a place of conversations. From 1969, when there were debates, door knocking and map drawing, defining our future and determining our identity against those larger cities wanting to impose themselves on our community.  The pendulum has swung from one side to the other. There were conservative years where spending was
