  • Blue jays joining Steller’s jays at area feeders

    Several readers of this column have called me during the last month to tell me they have had a “real honest-to-goodness Eastern blue jay” at their feeders. This is an exciting event, which seems to be occurring with more regularity each fall. They stay for a day or two and then usually disappear. This bold, sassy blue jay has apparently worked its way west along the water courses over the past many years.

The nerve of those elk!

  • Five commissioners makes sense

    Jefferson County, with a population of approximately 550,000 people, is Colorado’s fourth largest county. A three-member Board of County Commissioners, who are elected at large, governs it. Large portions of the more densely populated areas of the county exist in unincorporated areas that receive urban services directly from county government.

  • Details on pet licensing in Jefferson County

    Residents of unincorporated Jefferson County have been required to license their dogs since 1994. In 2007, Lakewood, Golden, Wheat Ridge, Westminster and Arvada joined the county’s licensing program, and residents in those cities have been required to license their canines ever since.

  • Start fixing, just like Evergreen

    By Jim Rohrer

    So the beat goes on in Washington. Lawmakers and the White House continue to haggle. Now the main topic is the health-care website, but that’s just the latest thing to demonstrate that no one is thinking solutions. It seems more fun to bash the other party and blame them for all of what’s wrong.
