It appears that Bergen Valley and Bergen Meadow elementary schools will return to being one school. If approved by the Jeffco school board on Nov. 10, Bergen Meadow, which houses students in preschool through second grade, will close after the 2023-24 school year. Meanwhile, an addition will be built onto Bergen Valley, which currently has third- through fifth-graders, to accommodate preschool-fifth grade beginning in fall 2024. The school board heard recommendations for school closures at its meeting on Aug. 25 since enrollment districtwide continues to decrease. Fifteen other elementary schools in the district — all down the hill — are slated to close in June and combine with nearby schools. Before the Nov. 10 decision, district officials promised community meetings to get feedback from the

“It is hard on all school communities when we do not efficiently utilize our resources and take advantage of economies of scale,” information from the district said. “Most importantly, it creates inequities in the educational opportunities that schools are able to provide to students due to budget limitations.”

Bergen Valley, which is on Sugarbush Drive about 1.7 miles away, was constructed in 1997 to provide more space for the overcrowded BergenBergenElementary.Meadowand Bergen Valley — known collectively as The Bergens — share a principal, buses, a PTA and more.

The district lost 5,000 students between 2019 and 2022, officials said. “There is no joy in what we are presenting here tonight, but it is the work we believe needs to be done,” Lisa Relou, Jeffco’s chief of strategy and communication, said at the boardEvergreenmeeting.elementary schools generally have seen enrollment declines, and census data show that Evergreen is aging, with the largest percentage of the population — 33% —between 50 and 69. According to the data, 7% are 20-29, 12% are 30-39 and 14% are 40-49. Longtime Evergreen residents suggest that Evergreen elementary schools have seen enrollment decreases in part because some families have chosen online options, especially since the pandemic, plus the area also has Rocky Mountain Academy of Evergreen, which is a public charter school, plus three private schools: the two campuses of Montessori School of Evergreen and Evergreen Country Day School. Closing elementary schools is phase 1 of the district’s consolidation plan called “Regional Opportunities for Thriving Schools.” Phase two, which is expected to begin in January, will include looking at possible consolidations at middle schools and high schools throughout theJeffcodistrict.officials believe that closing some elementary schools — while difficult for families and school staff — is the right way to proceed.

Sherman explained that he’s been a sculptor his entire life, and he has loved the “creative obstacles” he has encountered on his artistic journey. This was Sherman’s second time in the festival, and he said he has been impressed with Evergreen because people go out of their way to help others.

Charles Sherman, an artist from Los Angeles, sat under an umbrella as he watched attendees check out his sculptures, many of which are large. A man stopped and asked Sherman where he could put such a sculpture, and Sherman replied that it could go near a home’s front door.

The 56 th annual festival is organized by the Evergreen Artists Association, which through a juried process selects a variety of art created by artists locally, in Colorado and from around the country including New Mexico, Arizona, Nebraska, North Carolina, California and Texas. Included among the 100 booths were fabrics, metalwork, glass, furniture, baskets, kitchen utensils and ceramics in addition to paintings and photographs. The festival was fi lled with something for every artistic taste.

Lake trail project to be rebid in

Pickleball clubs hopes for more courts The Evergreen Pickleball Club hopes the Evergreen Park & Recreation District board will keep the growing sport in mind as it embarks on a strategic plan.

In July, the district received only one bid that was substantially higher than the money the district has. Staff rejected the bid and asked construction companies why they didn’t bid on the project.

“When we put it out to bid (in October), we will be more flexible in the timing,” Cohen said. She noted the bid request will still require the work that will force a detour on Evergreen Parkway to be no more than 120 days as originally planned.During construction, Evergreen Parkway along the lake is expected to be down to one lane, and the detour will divert northbound traffic through downtown Evergreen to Meadow Drive while southbound traffic will travel on Evergreen Parkway.Cohensaid the organizations providing large grants for the project — the Denver Regional Council of Governments and Colorado the Beautiful — have provided extensions.Plans call for a 10-foot-wide concrete trail along Evergreen Parkway and a soft-surface trail along the lakeshore.TheEvergreen Lake North Trail was built in 1987, and in 2016, a portion of the trail collapsed, closing it for 19 months. EPRD staff managed to shore up the supports under the trail to reopen it. Most recently, an area of the trail collapsed in August, and crews were able to make repairs and reopen it in two days.

EPRD board members approved the salary ranges for all positions in the district at its Aug. 23 meeting, noting that as they move through the budget process, they may be able to afford merit increases on top of the minimum wage adjustment.

Liz Cohen, EPRD’s grants and development coordinator, said the companies’ biggest concern was the tight construction timeline, especially being unsure whether construction materials could be delivered in a timely manner.

Club President Bob Taber explained at the Aug. 23 EPRD board meeting that the club now has about 240 members after the sport was introduced to Evergreen in 2011. Outdoor courts are in Marshdale Park and at Evergreen Middle School when school is not in session, and indoor courts are at Wulf Recreation Center. Taber said more than half of members live south of downtown Evergreen, and he advocated for more indoor courts on the south side of town. He noted that if EPRD had competitive pickleball courts, it could host tournaments that would bring more money to the district and visitors to Evergreen.

The Evergreen Park & Recreation District will ask for bids to build the Evergreen Lake North Trail starting in October after rejecting the one bid it received in July. Before requesting bids from construction companies for the $4.5 million project, the board wants to hire a construction manager, EPRD staff told the board at its Aug. 23 meeting.

EPRD sta ’s minimum wage to increase The minimum wages for Evergreen Park & Recreation District employees will move to $14 per hour beginning in 2023. Increasing the hourly wages will cost the district $49,000, which will be factored into the 2023 budget that the board will approve in December.


Heather Facer, EPRD’s human resources manager, said of the 238 staff members on the payroll, 152 will get the raises to $14 per hour, primarily those working in children’s programs, at the Lake House, bus drivers, coaches/general recreation instructors, referees and aquatics. Many are part-time or seasonalExecutiveemployees.Director Cory Vander Veen said the rec district has a difficult time finding seasonal employees.The salary ranges are derived from a compensation study looking at other comparable recreation districts. The compensation study is done every five years, and this year it looked at wages for comparable positions in the Golden, Foothills, Apex and Mountain recreation centers.Facer said compared with the other recreation districts, EPRD is in the middle in terms of insurance and retirement benefits and paid time off.

“A little prayer and a lot of food,” added Ellen Murray, the church’s marketing director. As the group grew, Elrod explored becoming a minister, including a residency with BRAVE Global. The group became too large to meet at someone’s home, so it moved to Venue Theatre where as many as 80 people have attended services.

Both Stenger and Murray are pleased with the leadership Elrod has“Weprovided.areblessed to have a man of faith with a heart of a shepherd,” Stenger said of Elrod. Murray added: “Brian has such a light about him.” Elrod hopes to focus his congregation on service, so people live their faith. He says he has created Ignite Fellowship so the candle of the Lord isn’t blown out. Instead, he wants that candle to be ignited through the Holy Spirit and to be a light to the community.

New Conifer church to shed a light on faith

Pastor Brian Elrod, also an ordained chaplain, is excited about creating a more formal organization from a group that had been meeting monthly in private homes for about a year. The church’s official launch will be at 10 a.m. Sept. 18 in the Venue Theatre. Prayer is at 6 p.m. Wednesdays with fellowship after the service on the third Sunday.“When we started (to meet in Evergreen), we didn’t say we wanted to start a church,” Elrod said. “We were meeting once a month to eat.”



The pastor of the new Ignite Fellowship in Conifer hopes to be a light in the community for those looking for a welcoming, non-denominational church.



From left, Ignite Fellowship’s launch coordinator Riki Stenger, Pastor Brian Elrod and marketing director Ellen Murray.

Elrod, who had a long career in sales before becoming a chaplain and pastor, said Ignite Fellowship is based on four pillars: proclaiming the authority of God’s word as written in the Bible, lifting the name of Jesus through worship, using the power of prayer and proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ. The fellowship wants to help those who are hurting, provide healing aid and fulfill the needs of those hungry for spiritual enlightenment.Elrod,Murray and Riki Stenger, the church’s launch coordinator, said they were raised in more traditional faiths but felt unfulfilled spiritually by the ritualistic services and lack of connection. They wanted to find another spiritual direction.Thechurch is based on authenticity, said Stenger, who has been part of the group since it started meeting, with prayer as the main focus.“It’s a fellowship of like-minded people,” she said. “It’s a very connected group of people.”

SEE BAREFOOT, P18 Friends walk in the Barefoot Mile. The group has a connection to Wilmot Elementary and to a book club they belong to, and they wore orange to the event.

“You are doing a one-mile walk for freedom,” he told the group, noting that he has been barefoot for 12 years to show solidarity with enslaved children. He said he never thought going barefoot would become a fundraising tool.

A one-mile walk for freedom


More than 300 barefoot people took to the Marshdale Fields on Aug. 27 to fight child trafficking. All ages participated in the fourth annual Mountain Community Barefoot Mile to benefit JOY International, a Conifer-based nonprofit that helps with rescue, reintegration of children into society, prevention and education. Dr. Jeff Brodsky, its founder and president, travels around the world to train other organizations and to help rescue children.Brodsky told the group before the walk began that while he travels around the world to participate in Barefoot Mile events, this one was his favorite because of the wonderful people and because it’s close to his Conifer home.

“I never went barefoot to raise money,” he said. “I did it to raise awareness.”Yet,lastyear’s Mountain ComBarefoot Mile aims to help end child tra cking

Aging smarter: Top tips for better brain health YOURLETTERS

Maintain a healthy diet

Don’t shortchange your zzz’s

The brain is constantly busy during waking hours, but while we sleep, the brain has a chance to relax and “detoxify” from the day. Scientists are learning that this process is critical to maintaining brain function, and in turn, helps keep the brain healthy and memory sharp.

TO THE EDITOR Don’t block the view I would be very happy with a new firehouse at El Rancho and a remodeled one at Lookout Mountain. I would like a new Alpine Rescue Building. “Zero cost?” No. In order to get these things, we would have to swallow a commercial blot. Another mini-mall across the street from a minimall, more lights, more noise and what looks like every other mini-mall in every city in the West. We can build these things without having to pay a prohibitive price. As to the “Gateway,” we have one. It’s called the front range of the Rocky Mountains. Go up I-70 to exit 254 and you will see something that makes your heart rise at the top of the hill. Your hotel, gas station and burger place are nothing more than a bunch of buildings blocking the view.

We tend to chalk up these momentary memory lapses to our busy schedules or even stress. As it turns out, occasional forgetfulness can be a normal and natural part of aging. However, these episodes of forgetfulness also may be a sign of a more serious problem with mild cognitive impairment or Alzheimer’s.Thegood news is there are some simple strategies you can implement that may help combat memory loss and keep your mind sharp, no matter your stage in life.

Exercise that brain

To help reap the benefits of brain-boosting foods, consistently reach for fruits and vegetables as well as include items that are high in mono- and polyunsaturated fats and omega-3 fatty acids, like salmon, nuts, avocados and olive oil. Try to stay away from foods high in trans and saturated fats, like cake, doughnuts and fatty cuts of beef.

Joanne Greenberg, Golden Thoughts on Lesley Dahlkemper Lesley Dahlkemper is running for re-election as our county commissioner. I have nothing but tall praise for this special woman. She is altogether a caring, capable and accomplished commissioner.

Lesley has earned respect and admiration with her strengths, compassion, leadership and the ability to “get things done.” Respect comes easily if you have followed her career at all. If you know her as I do, you would be drawn to her and feel comfort in the issues she tackles successfully. That is what we want and need-a respected and effective leader with her feet on the ground as she tackles challenging issues with the talents she owns. She cares about Evergreen and our county.

Bottom line Always be mindful of changes as you age. If you notice abnormal or rapid changes in memory or forgetfulness, talk to your provider. There are many reasons for memory changes. For example, if you have had COVID-19 and are experiencing “brain fog,” it could be a post-COVID condition.

Aim for seven to nine hours of quality sleep a night. Of course, everyone is different, and medications as well as underlying health conditions can impact sleep. Consult your provider if you are having trouble getting adequate sleep. Get moving Regular physical activity can boost brain health. Most adults should get at least 150 minutes of moderate intensity physical activity weekly along with at least 2 nonconsecutive days of strength training.But, set realistic fitness-related goals for where you are in life. Starting with daily walking is a good first step. Or perhaps you feel motivated to finish your first 5K or hit a nice bike trail. People should always check with their physician before starting any exercise regimen.

We all have heard the adage “use it or lose it.” This is particularly prudent advice when it comes to keeping your memory and brain function in the best shape possible.Examples of activities that may stimulate your brain include crossword puzzles, painting, reading or online brain games.

O ne of the great things about public art is that it serves so many purposes — just as easily as it adds beauty to a community, it can also become a landmark, a location for people to orient their lives around. And Thornton’s latest public art piece aims to become a waypoint for both residents and travelers alike due to both its size and location.

“It’s a gift to take something different and futuristic and put it where people can see it. It can be a shock visually, but over time it can define a place and give residents a sense of pride,” Leathers said. “These kinds of pieces start out as landmarks, but become what a place is known for.” Stay current on Thornton’s public art efforts by visiting

As Alisa Zimmerman, Thornton’s Arts and Culture manager, explained, Alkanoglu’s work was approved by the city council and recommended by Thornton Arts, Sciences and Humanities Council (TASHCO) Public Art Subcommittee. The process began in 2020, but the COVID-19 pandemic delayed the project.“There were no size or dimension limitations to the call for artists,” she added. “This is our biggest budgeted piece and I think the fact that we supported thinking big about the work brought in a lot of submissions.”Alkanoglu has worked in the state before and the way he embraces STEM principles in his creations made it uniquely appealing, as did the fact that it’s made of carbon fiber, which should withstand all the Colorado climate can throw at it.

“When I proposed this sculpture for Thornton, I wanted to design something that would complement the extraordinary backdrop of the Colorado sky and Rocky Mountains complete with its purples, blues and warm colors,” he said in a provided statement. “The site was chosen as a gateway for Thornton with the sculpture signaling a city on the move.”Thework’s location on one of the state’s major highways will not only provide plenty of eyes, but also an opportunity for those doing something as routine as driving to or from work the opportunity to be transported by the power of art.

Portland, Oregon, artist Volkan Alkanoglu has created a 34-foot-tall contemporary art sculpture for the city and when it is installed this fall, it will be the largest 3-D printed sculpture of its kind in the United States and the second largest in the world, according to provided information. Its home will be on the median at East 136th Avenue between I-25 and Lincoln Street.

“Thornton is really interested in becoming a beacon for more contemporary public art and a place that adds art that is a little less traditional,” said Hannah Leathers, Thornton public art coordinator. “This work has bright colors and a very futuristic look. It has a technological and scientific look, but is also beautiful in the way it mimics the Rocky Mountain sunset.”

The creative process is a unique and mysterious process — one that defies easy explanation and rationalization, even by those who have been artists their whole lives. But the artists in Walker Fine Arts latest show, Modus Operandi, explore this process and their own artistic language. It’s on display through Saturday, Sept. 10. The gallery is located in suite A at 300 W. 11th Ave. exhibition features Laura Guese, Deidre Adams, Blair Vaughn-Gruler, Ben Strawn, Melanie Grein and Melana Bontrager.

For Conifer volleyball coach Laurie Eddy, getting COVID-19 wasn’t such a bad thing. Eddy tested positive on Aug. 23, which meant her team had to prepare itself for its home matches against Kennedy without her. The Lobos won 3-1. “This year instead of scrimmages we did inter-squad scrimmages, and everyone set up (as if it were) a home game,” Eddy said. “So, on Monday, everybody was ready.”

The Cougars play Northridge at 7 p.m. Sept. 3 at Northridge, then Eagle Valley at 7 p.m. Sept. 9 at home. Conifer volleyball returns nine to the squad

Eddy noted that preparing without her for the games helped build more camaraderie among the players on a varsity team with nine returning players, three of them on varsity since they were sophomores.“Wehavea lot of experience, and that is an awesome thing as a coach to rely on,” she said. “There’s a lot of depth in hitters andEddydefense.”saidit was nice to start the volleyball season in a normal way without masks, with full practices and a regular schedule. Even with a senior-heavy team, Eddy said she is excited about two freshmen starters, Hayden Buscher and Maya Meyers, who will be able to lead the team in the next few years. The team’s next home match is at 6:30 p.m. Sept. 8 vs. Bear Creek.

Year-over-year dip in new filings seen in second quarter

The Colorado Secretary of State’s office last week shared the latest quarterly update on how small businesses in the state are doing. It’s mixed, Secretary of State Jena Griswold said. Job growth remains strong, but the number of businesses that are delinquent in filing regular reports or repaying a debt rose.

Speaking of business filings, Colorado’s Business Fee Relief Act went into effect July 1. That dropped the cost of registering a new business from $50 to $1. In the first month, the state attracted 13,000 new business registrations and 4,200 trade names, which the Secretary of State’s office estimated a $750,000 savings for small business owners. This story is from The Colorado Sun, a journalist-owned news outlet based in Denver and covering the state.

“Our view is that this is not, we’re not in a recession,” Wobbekind said. “Despite the slowdown in the first half, expectations are that the 2022 overall GDP will be positive. Right now, the forward-looking forecast for the third quarter is running at about one-andhalf percent for GDP growth. But this is still obviously a much more moderate growth economy than we had in 2021.”

“And while many new entities are filing with our office, the report also notes an uptick in delinquencies and dissolutions as well as signs of pessimism from the business community due to inflation, supply-chain disruption, worker shortages and interest rates among other factors that continued to place pressure on small business owners,” Griswold said during a news conference.

If you want to try the great game of lacrosse, this is a fun option!!

According to data provided by the Leeds School of Business at University of Colorado, the number of new business filings was slightly negative from a year ago, at -0.2% in the second quarter, which was the first annual decline since the start of the pandemic.

And the number of companies showing signs of failure grew at double-digit rates — delinquent filings were up 9.8% while companies that dissolved their business grew 27%.

Brian Lewandowski, executive director of Leeds’ Business Research Division, speculated that more businesses would have dissolved earlier if it hadn’t been for federal stimulus packages that provided financial aid to small businesses, like the popular Paycheck Protection Programs.“Perhaps the rise in dissolutions and delinquencies are a sign of some of that strain on businesses now that the stimulus has gone away,” he said. “With a slowing national economy, can we expect to see the rise in business failures over the coming quarters?” His colleague Richard Wobbekind thinks so. Even though bankruptcy filings fell in the pandemic, recent data lags.“Ithink there’s a fair amount of concern that we’re going to see bankruptcy and those kinds of things uptick over the next two quarters,” Wobbekind said. “Some of the funding that was out there has run out. We’re hearing this from the banking community and elsewhere.”

The nation’s gross domestic product slowed in the first half of the year, which can indicate an economy in recession. Nevertheless, strong job numbers and a growth in the number of businesses in good standing are evidence that Colorado’s economy is holding steady.



“People just needed an outlet,” BoxlerBoxlersaid.saw many new faces at the shop (behind their masks), with people picking up new skills like knitting and sending handmade cards to relatives in nursing homes.

The Craft Box has many items for paper crafting, including stamps, die and more.

The Craft Box, Wheat Ridge The Craft Box, located at 6141 W 44th Ave. in Wheat Ridge, is the “premier thrift store for crafters,” according to staff.

Owner Liz Boxler had the idea for a secondhand craft store over 10 years ago when a friend passed away and left behind a mountain of craft supplies. She wanted to provide a place for the items to go where they would be appreciated.


hrift stores are more than just grandpa’s old shirts and the Goodwill store on the corner. Many shops around the metro area are bringing their own twist to secondhand stores.

“Our goal was definitely to keep things from going into the landfill,” Boxler said. Not only does the store provide a second home for craft supplies, but it also provides a low-cost opportunity for those looking to start projects without breaking the bank. Supplies like fabric, yarn, stamps and more can get expensive when purchased new.The store also has a mission to sponsor charities and groups in the community. One ongoing project the store features is the “fidget quilt” for people with Alzheimer’s and sementia, where crafters can take a kit with supplies to create a quilt with tactile stimuli on it to bring back to the store to donate, or to give to someone they know who would benefit.Thestore also uses its unsellable fabric to make reusable tote bags for people to use at the local food bank.

“I think it was good for us during COVID,” she said. “Not necessarily a huge spike in sales but more of an interest.”Boxlerhopes to continue to see this interest in crafts, and looks forward to new customers.

“At least they know it’s going to be loved,” she said. The original Craft Box location was in Golden, and the store moved to Wheat Ridge five years ago. Items are donated to the store, and sometimes the store is able to purchase secondhand items from people. Employees want people to know these items are valued.

At the Craft Box, Boxler said, the No. 1 selling item is fabric, followed by yarn, though the store does see a great deal of paper crafters coming in for supplies. During the beginning of the pandemic, the shop saw an uptick in fabric sales for those sewing masks. As with many other craft stores, the Craft Box could not keep elastic on its shelves during this time. However, masks were not the only thing people were making during the lockdown.

“I hope the Craft Box is a place for people to be inspired and heal,” she said.The shop is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. It is closed Sundays. For more information, visit


An employee at The Good Couch works on cleaning one of the couches.

One of the owners and founders, Nick Reichert, explained that couches and furniture items are often curated for people’s personal aesthetics and end up getting thrown out when they redecorate.


The thrift store is open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday and is closed on Sunday and Monday.

about acceptable donations can be found on its website at, The Good Couch will come into your home and haul out the couch that is being donated. Unlike junk removal services, The Good Couch won’t throw it into the landfill. Even the damaged couches are used for The group gets about eight to 10 donated couches a day and sells around six a day. All the local furniture stores now recommend the group’s services for people buying new furniture who need a way to dispose of the old items.

“Most of our clientele are regulars,” said Wendy Roth, who has been volunteering for two years. The store gets more than just the regular clothing and knickknacks, however. One of the most bizarre donations was a “dog zipline kit,” which apparently sold very quickly.

Liz Boxler, owner of The Craft Box

The Good Couch has a large inventory of restored couches.

The volunteers at the store describe the place as “a little gem,” and say that people are consistently delighted to discover them. The store shut down for a few months during the pandemic, but now sees regular customers and a number of people buying clothing to send home to other countries or to bring to the Native American reservations.

“They’re such a large item and so personal to your decor,” he said. “A lot of trash ends up in the landfill, and furniture especially.”

Three of the volunteers at Soul Dog laugh as they work alongside each other.

Not only does The Good Couch believe in helping the environment, but the business also works to help the community. The company partners with Colorado Coalition for the Homeless and helps to donate furniture to the coalition as needed. The founders always hoped they could pair up with a local nonprofit group, Reichert said. Working with the community and giving back is the ultimate goal, Reichert said. So far, the company has donated $17,930 to the Colorado Coalition for the Homeless, and also helped furnish an affordable housing During the early days of the pandemic, The Good Couch had to pause business, but overall the company saw growth. “During the pandemic, we grew by like 50%,” Reichert said. Reichert attributed the uptick in business to the number of people moving, downsizing and generally trying to save money on furniture.TheGood Couch is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday and closed on Sundays. Information about donating or buying couches can be found online at good amount of pet supplies that are donations was a “dog zipline kit,”

The group’s thrift store helps to fund the travel costs for the program, and other donations offset the costs of medications, supplies and operation of clinics.

The Good Couch, Northglenn

Information about the store can be found at or on its Facebook page, “Soul Dog Rescue & Humane Society Thrift Store.”

Soul Dog Humane Society Thrift Store, Englewood Soul Dog Humane Society Thrift Store is located at 4725 S. Broadway in Englewood. The small shop boasts consistently low prices for clothing, housewares, pet products and more.

Soul Dog is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to the protection and spaying/neutering of animals. The group travels to rural areas on Native American reservations to spay and neuter pets at no cost to the public.

Soul Dog has a low-cost clinic in Fort Lupton for spaying/neutering, vaccination and microchipping. It also offers rotating vaccine clinics on tribal lands on a bimonthly basis. The thrift store in Englewood is run by about 10 volunteers. Not only does the store support the mission of Soul Dog, it also strives to support the local people.

“Our mission is to help our friends in the community,” said Kimberleigh Anders, who has been volunteering for two years. The store keeps prices low — $2 for most clothing items, many marked down to 50 cents. It has a good amount of pet supplies that are donated new from pet stores. The shop, which has been in the community for 10 years now, has become a landmark of the community, attracting a regular customer base.

The Good Couch is located at 425 W 115th Ave. in Northglenn. What started in 2017 as a group of guys flipping couches from Craigslist turned into a business with sustainability at its core. The Good Couch will pick up most old couches for free, and the staff refurbishes them and sell the furniture for a low price. The company has some parameters, though. It will charge for pickups outside of the 25-mile radius of its warehouse and also charge for damaged or patterned furniture. More information

In a long-awaited announcement, President Joe Biden on Aug. 24 said his administration will cancel $10,000 in student loan debt for borrowers who make less than $125,000 a year, or $250,000 for taxpayers file jointly. In addition, Biden said many students from low-income backgrounds will receive an additional $10,000 in relief. The unprecedented maneuver by Biden should reach over 43 million borrowers and even wipe out loan repayments for some. But it likely won’t fix some of the larger issues surrounding student debt — namely the cost of college and the large amounts borrowed by some to foot the cost of college. Nationally, student debt has ballooned to over $1.7 trillion.U.S.Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona said in a news release Wednesday that student loan debt has hindered many Americans’ ability to achieve their dreams — including buying a home, starting a business, or providing for a family. The department also announced other changes to make repaying loans“ education should set us free; not strap us down,” Cardona said. “We’re delivering targeted relief that will help ensure borrowers are not placed in a worse position should be creating opportunity, not a debt Bidentrap.”ranon canceling at least $10,000 in student loan debt and faced pressure from advocates to cancel much more. He repeatedly delayed a decision amid intense debates about whether debt cancellation would advance economic justice or disproportionately benefit higher-earning Americans during a time when the working class is the students who started with the least. About 27 million Pell Grant recipients should be eligible to receive up to $20,000 in loan forgiveness. Pell Grants cover a portion of college costs for students from low-income families, with the large majority of eligible students coming from households that earn less than $60,000 a year.

Members of Team Twinkletoes from TallGrass Aveda Spa have participated in the Barefoot Mile since its inaugural year. Team members always wear capes to make participation more festive. munity Barefoot Mile raised $60,000 for JOY International. Josh Doneff, an organizer of the event, said the goal was to increase the amount to $65,000 this year. Brodsky said rescuing someone from enslavement cost $2,000 to $3,000, so the money goes to a good cause. In addition, money goes to train others on how to spot someone who is being trafficked. Church groups and individuals took part in the walk, including a group wearing orange. Most in the group have been part of a book club for 25 years and also have a Wilmot Elementary School connection. Group members said they supported each other in various causes over the years, and participating in the Barefoot Mile was another way to get together and support an importantThecause.TallGrass Spa & Salon team — as always decked out in superhero masks and capes — was ready to start its fourth Barefoot Mile.

Turf war EVERGREEN – As was his custom, the man parked his pickup truck near the grocery store just after noon, carefully placed his hand-lettered sign for maximum visibility, and made ready to solicit donations from the stream of small bills turning off of Evergreen Parkway. He’d yet to see his first dollar, however, when a woman with kids “piled out” of a minivan, set up folding chairs in front of his sign and prepared to corner his market. The man yelled at the woman to move on. The woman yelled at the man to take a powder. The man threw a rock toward the woman. The woman threw a rock back toward the man. A passerby couldn’t possibly help noticing the hullabaloo going on at one of Evergreen’s most-trafficked intersections and notified JCSO. The woman took notice of the passerby’s notice and piled everyone back in the minivan for a hasty retreat. The man told deputies that the woman and her young crew are well-known at intersections all over Lakewood and Littleton, and she had no business poaching west of the Hogback. With her departure, peace had returned to the mountains and officers returned to their normal duties.

Group encounter KITTREDGE – Backing out of his driveway on the morning of Aug. 4, he had the bad luck to clip his neighbor’s trash can, and the worse luck to have his neighbor witness the minor mishap. “Pick my (fortygallon) trash can up, (Massimo)!” demanded Neighbor. In view of the strained relationship between their respective households, Bad Luck decided it was “too early” for what promised to be an unpleasant “confrontation” and simply drove away, leaving the barrel where it lay. But if Bad Luck considered the matter closed, Neighbor did not, and Bad Luck returned home that evening to a hot reception. “Do you have a (familiar) problem, dude?” Neighbor asked as a purported “mob” of “shirtless” residents poured out of their homes to support Neighbor’s cause. Speaking later to deputies, Bad Luck likened his assembled detractors to drunken “KKK” goons brandishing figurative “pitchforks,” and he assured the officers he was prepared to meet such threats with whateverstrong measures he may deem necessary. Officers took considerable pains to explain to Bad Luck the serious legal dimensions of deadly force, and strongly recommended he call JCSO before going off half-cocked.

Sheriff’s Calls is intended as a humorous take on some of the incident call records of the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office for the mountain communities. Names and identifying details have been changed. All individuals are innocent until proven guilty.

EVERGREEN – Making a run for the border on the afternoon of Aug. 4, he picked up his bag of burritos at the drive-through window only to discover that the guy at the drive through window had handed him somebody else’s zesty fiesta. He called in a complaint, and the manager told him to return to the drive through window for a refund. Unfortunately the manager wasn’t working the drive through window, and the guy who was “didn’t know anything about a refund.” What happened next depends on who’s doing the telling. The PO’ed patron told deputies the guy at the drive through window was aggressively uncooperative and ultimately came outside spoiling for trouble. The angry employee told deputies the patron “started throwing things through the window” and “challenged me to a fight.” The manager said the complainant is no longer welcome on the border. The complainant seemed to be okay with that.

Problem solved EVERGREEN – By midnight the bar patron was drunk as a skunk, so the staff cut him off. By 12:01 he was loud, violent and obnoxious, so the staff kicked him out. When he refused to go quietly into that good night, they called JCSO. “Look, big dog,” Obnoxious warned deputies asking after his welfare. “You don’t want this problem, man.” Almost certainly they did not, but they were stuck with him anyway. Even as deputies were doing their level best to keep Obnoxious cool until they could find him safe harbor for the night, he was repeatedly raising his fists and “squaring off” to fight them. Obnoxious soon proved so relentlessly uncooperative, crudely offensive and physically threatening that deputies had little choice but to arrest him outright and drive him down the hill in handcuffs.

to decide a ordable housing ballot measure

The measure has reported more than $2.8 million in fundraising from groups including Gary Community Ventures, Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver, and the National Association of Realtors.

Proposal would increase level of funding from state

The loans are forgiven if affordable housing projects are started within a decade.•Grants and financing for low- and middle-income multi-family housing, and gap financing for projects that qualify for affordable housing tax credits.

• Debt financing for modular and factory-based housing builders. It would be nearly a sixfold increase in the state’s dedicated affordable housing funds, which are currently about $50 million per year, Johnston said. The state is also in the middle of spending about $400 million of federal funds on housing across the state, but Johnston said that wouldn’t be enough.

September 1, 202222 Canyon Courier “Need to know these people to decide?”

Workers build townhomes in Littleton in 2018. The rising cost of living in the city and surrounding metro area has spurred local leaders to look for new ways to ensure a ordable housing.

A proposal to increase the state’s funding for affordable housing will appear on statewide ballots this November after supporters collected more than 200,000 signatures. The “Make Colorado Affordable” proposal would require the state to spend a certain amount — almost $270 million in its first full year — on affordable housing.

“You can’t build an affordable housing supply with one-time funds. They have to be long term. They have to be stable and they have to be significant,” he said. The program would be focused on families making 60 percent or less of an area’s median income, with some flexibility. It also includes incentives for governments to reduce the bureaucratic red tape that can slow down affordable projects.

“We think this is the first time housing has ever been on the ballot statewide in Colorado,” said Mike Johnston, CEO and president of Gary Community Ventures, the philanthropy that is one of the measure’s main backers. He added: “And we know it’s a critical moment for us to make sure that teachers and nurses and firefighters have places to live in our communities.”Themeasure would not directly raise taxes. Instead, it sets aside a tenth of a percent of the income taxes the state is already collecting. However, it would have the effect of reducing TABOR refunds by the same amount, too — meaning it will have a cost to taxpayers in some years.“Initiative 108 is a bad idea. There’s nothing ‘affordable’ about taking $300 million of our TABOR tax refunds for this flawed housing measure,” tweeted Michael Fields, president of the conservative Advance Colorado Institute. Johnston estimated the measure could fund 10,000 affordable housing units per year. That’s compared to a deficit of more than 100,000 homes for the state’s poorest people — and an overall market shortage of more than 300,000 homes. The measure will only go into effect if it’s approved by a majority of voters in the 2022 election. If so, it would create a statewide affordable housing fund for purposes including:Land banking. Governments and nonprofit developers would get loans to buy land for future projects.

A group of Republicans on Aug. 24 initiated a recall against Colorado state Sen. Kevin Priola, two days after the Henderson lawmaker announced he was leaving the GOP to become a Democrat. The recall effort, backed by a deeppocketed conservative nonprofit, kicks off a flurry of legal questions, namely whether the recall will be focused on Priola’s current state Senate district or the one he will begin representing in January. Priola was drawn into a much more Republican district during last year’s once-in-adecade redistricting process.

“Kevin Priola lied to voters and broke the trust of those who elected him,” Burton Brown said in a writtenPriolastatement.saidearlier this week that he wasn’t surprised Republicans were talking about trying to recall him as soon as he announced he was becoming a Democrat. He said he will defend himself.

“As I’ve said in the past when these clowns have done this, recalls should be done for corruption and malfeasance, not because you disagree with someone,” Fenberg said. The petition language submitted to the Colorado Secretary of State’s Office to initiate the recall process claims Priola “does not represent the views of (his) district).”

Republicans initiate recall of Sen. Kevin Priola

Lawmaker is leaving GOP to become a Democrat

The language cites Priola’s vote in favor of new road-usage fees to pay for transportation projects, support of Proposition CC in 2019, and backing of a 2019 bill making personaluse possession of most drugs a misdemeanor. The recall language also notes that Priola was a cosponsor of an unsuccessful 2018 bill backed by Democrats and Republicans that would have paved the way for a supervised drug-consumption site in Priola,Denver.whooften voted with Democrats in the legislature even when he was a Republican, cited concerns about the GOP’s embrace of 2020 election conspiracies and the party’s unwillingness to work on legislation to combat climate change as driving his decision to become a Democrat.

The recall committee is made up of two Republican voters from state Senate District 13: Louisa Andersen and Jeff Sloan. The Colorado GOP is supporting the recall effort, said Chairwoman Kristi Burton Brown.

The Colorado Secretary of State’s Office was investigating last week, with the help of the Colorado Attorney General’s Office, how the recall will play out. It’s possible the situation could end up before a judge. The first step in a recall process is submitting a petition to the Colorado Secretary of State’s Office. The petition has to be accepted before the recall’s organizers can begin collecting signatures to try to force a special recall election. About 18,000 signatures from voters in Priola’s district — again, it’s unclear if it’s his old or new district — would be needed to force the special election. The signatures would have to be collected 60 days after the petition is approved.

“My guess is they’ll pick someone they can actually trust and who more closely reflects their views.”

The recall’s supporters want the recall to happen in District 13. Priola’s term ends in January 2025.Advance Colorado Action, a conservative nonprofit with millions of dollars to spend, said it’s supporting the recall. An issue committee called “Recall Priola” has been formed to raise money for the effort.

Senate President Steve Fenberg, a Boulder Democrat, told The Colorado Sun that Democrats will come to Priola’s defense if a recall is initiated against him.

Priola represents Senate District 25 now, but come January he will represent Senate District 13, because of last year’s redistricting process. (While the 60-day signature gathering period won’t be over before the new year, the recall election will likely have to take place in 2023.)While Priola’s current district is a tossup, the new Senate District 13 leans 4 percentage points in Republicans’ favor, according to a nonpartisan analysis of election results in the district from 2016 to 2020.

“It’s strange how the way you affiliate changes people’s perceptions of you,” Priola said on Aug. 24, citing the millions of dollars spent on his 2020 reelection race.

State Sen. Kevin Priola, center.



“I cannot continue to be a part of a political party that is OK with a violent attempt to overturn a free and fair election,” Priola wrote in a letter Monday announcing his decision. “There is too much at stake right now for Republicans to be in charge.” This story is from The Colorado Sun, a journalist-owned news outlet based in Denver and covering the state.

“Voters in Senate District 13 deserve to decide who they want to represent them,” Michael Fields, a senior adviser for Advance Colorado Action, said in a written statement.
