  • Holiday lights keep landscapers busy this season

    It’s that time of year — when the pleasure of seeing lights from rooftop to treetop all over town is frequently overwhelmed by the pain of climbing ladders and unwinding tangled strings of mini-bulbs.

    Decorating is one of those things that seem like a good idea in theory. But who has the time?

    That’s when the summertime landscape companies such as Lam Tree Service and J.P. Total come to the rescue.

  • Mountains Taxi gets business rolling

    If you need a ride somewhere in the foothills or to Denver International Airport, a new business here can help out.

     

    Ralph Collins is the self-proclaimed taxi guy at Mountains Taxi, a taxi service that will take people practically anywhere in the foothills. Mountains Taxi is licensed by the Public Utilities Commission to serve a 400-square-mile area bounded loosely from C-470 to Bailey and Conifer to Blackhawk. In addition, the service provides regional transportation to the mountains or DIA.

  • Salon owner ‘walks her talk’ with healthy products, services

    For Sandy Klein, who opened Sandy’s Organic Salon this summer in Marshdale, nothing is more important than living a healthy lifestyle.

    In her personal life, she uses a juicer to extract the fiber from fruits and vegetables for a drink filled with a potent level of nutrients. At her salon, she features natural products for hair care, skin and nails.

    “I believe what you put on your body is just as important as what you put in it,” Klein said. “The skin is the largest organ in the body.”

  • Passion sets Evergreen scuba diving shop apart

    Jill Knapp opened a scuba diving shop in Bergen Park on Nov. 22 — her husband Scott’s birthday — as a tribute to the couple’s passion for diving.

    Scott Knapp died in March from lung cancer.

    “He was one of the good guys,” Jill said.

    Jill Knapp is the owner of Twin Dolphins Diving in Lakewood, and she is opening a store in the back of the Bagelry because a lot of her customers at her Lakewood shop have been coming from Evergreen. “So I decided to move up,” she said.

    LeBreakfast, LeLunch — and now LeDinner.

    Evergreen’s LePeep restaurant in Bergen Park will be open for dinner beginning the week of Oct. 6, said owner Rod Miller.
