  • Art, ideals collided at Main Street Fine Art

    “The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries.”
    — Winston Churchill

     

  • Hey, Newt: Go easy on capitalism

    This past month, I saw something I never thought I’d see: a Republican presidential candidate attacking an opponent for his participation in free-market capitalism. Newt Gingrich launched the first volley several weeks ago, going after Mitt Romney for his past work at a buyout firm, Bain Capital.
    The Wall Street Journal took notice of the unusual attack, saying that “a super-PAC supporting the former House speaker plans to spend $3.4 million in TV ads in South Carolina portraying Mr. Romney as Gordon Gekko without the social conscience.”

    Hockey, charity continue at ‘Dawg Pond’ in Indian Hills
    Dear friends and neighbors:
    I am the president of Dawg Nation Hockey Foundation, a 501(3)c founded in 2011 by a group of local adult hockey players looking to give back by helping those in need. Our first year blew away all expectations, as we pulled in more than $90,000 and, more importantly, were able to aid seven individuals suffering from illness or injury.

  • 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.

  • The Avs score big off the ice

    Several years ago, I had an interesting conversation with a guy who used to tend bar at a popular Larimer Street restaurant. The place gave complimentary meals to professional athletes, which in turn drew larger crowds. All in all, it was a good business proposition.
    One night, a big-time out-of-state NFL quarterback came through with his entourage. They stayed awhile, took full advantage of the free food and drink, kept the staff extremely busy, and had a good time. But when the time came to wrap it up, the tip was $10.

    Golf courses are not native to Colorado
    Editor:
    In Davidson’s letter about elk damage on the golf course, he states that elk are not native to Colorado. Elk have been pushed by human activity for many decades to be found where they now try to live. Are exclusive elitist golf courses native to Colorado? Not hardly.

  • Legislators face major issues in new session

    Ready for up to 120 days of nonstop fun and excitement? You’ve got it; your Colorado General Assembly convenes today for the 2012 legislative session.
    As has been the case for the last several years, budget discussions will dominate this year’s session. While there was good news in the last revenue forecast of 2011, there are still many more needs than there are resources, and tough decisions will need to be made about how to do it.
