  • DeGette reaches out to new constituents

    When I first heard that Congresswoman Diana DeGette, D-Denver, would announce her bid to be re-elected to Congress from the 1st Congressional District at the Columbine Library, my first thought was, “I thought that library in Cherry Creek was on Milwaukee, not Columbine.”
    As it turned out, I was right — there is no Denver library on Columbine Street. DeGette, who has represented Denver in Congress since 1997, chose to announce her re-election plans from the newest part of her district, the part in South Jeffco around Columbine and Ken Caryl.

  • Bergen Park McDonald’s serves last burger

    Rumors are flying over what business might build at the location of the Bergen Park McDonald’s, Evergreen’s first free-standing fast-food restaurant, which closed Dec. 31. 

    The most prevalent rumor is that a Chick-fil-A will eventually occupy the spot, though so far the land has not been purchased and plans have not been filed with the Jefferson County Planning and Zoning Department. A Chick-fil-A representative did not return phone calls.
