  • Furry friends leave paw prints on our hearts

    It’s the little things in life that are important. And for a little girl in Conifer, a small thing has left her life, and she’s pretty sad about it.
    Garlands the hamster, voted Conifer’s first unofficial mayor in 2009, passed away in November. Garlands was 3 years old.

  • Little opposition to approval of 2011 Deer Creek Challenge

    Opposition to Jeffco’s approval of the second annual Deer Creek Challenge bicycle tour was almost nonexistent Dec. 7, compared to the vehement objections from canyon residents at last year’s public hearing.

    A Colorado governor whose courageous support of civil rights during World War II is now honored with a tall, rose-colored monument on Kenosha Pass.

  • Local author shares advice on job preservation

     Evergreen consultant Jim Rohrer has written the perfect book for anyone in a down economy who has a job and wants to keep it, but needs a few fresh ideas.

    From 2008 to 2010, Rohrer watched the drumbeat of news about job losses and got the idea of helping people become so valuable they can enjoy their jobs instead of worrying about losing them.

    "Never Lose Your Job: Become a More Valuable Player" is the compendium of a lifetime of successful business experience as an executive in the work world.
