Radio Golden #6 – May 18, 2012: bronze statues, off-leash dogs, State Senator Cheri Jahn, and more

Episode 6 of Radio Golden is online! Some of the ground we cover:

  • a proposed new bronze statue in Golden of bike racer Levi Leipheimer
  • the policy on and fines for off-leash dogs
  • high-speed police chases
  • special guest State Senator Cheri Jahn on the 2012 legislative session
  • and more …

Radio Golden #5: the beltway, Golden’s charter schools, tobacco, & more!

Episode 5 of Radio Golden is in the wild … I wasn’t able to join this time, but Pamela and Matt covered the beltway bill, what’s happening at the community garden, the tobacco regulation measure that City Council just passed, and more. They also had an interesting and provocative conversation with Jami Boarman, the principle of one of Golden’s public charter schools.

Radio Golden Episode #4: The “My Eminent Domain is Bigger Than Yours” edition, special guest Nathan Richie of the Golden History Museums, youth access to tobacco products, and more.

We published Episode #4 about a week ago. We had a great time, focusing mostly on the latest shenanigans and on a terrific interview with Golden History Museums director Nathan Richie.

We also experimented in this episode with a different format. In response to a listener suggestion (thanks Eric!), instead of a shorter episode with a separate extended interview, we recorded everything in a single podcast. The show is longer (about 50 minutes) but we didn’t break up our conversation with our guest. Let us know what you think!

On episode #4 you’ll hear:

  • 02:03 – Jeffco’s beltway shenanigans at the State Legislature
  • 14:21 – GURA’s new parking lot
  • 18:12 – Windy Saddle’s request for a liquor license for their outdoor seating
  • 22:35 – A conversation with Nathan Richie, the director of the Golden History Museums
  • 40:45 – Getting Involved
  • 44:00 – The Mailbox
  • 44:37 – Community Chatter

And here are some links related to some of the issues we brought up during podcast:

The Bell Middle School iSTEM Open House and Other Upcoming Events

An open house for Bell Middle School's new STEM program is this week.

My First Book Launch: The Nimble Nonprofit Hits the Streets

In non-Golden news … last week I published my first book, The Nimble Nonprofit: An Unconventional Guide to Sustaining and Growing Your Nonprofit. We landed a bunch of great reviews on Amazon, held the #1 spot in the Kindle store for nonprofit books (we’re at #3 right now, but I’m still pretty happy about that), and the book is now available for $4.99 in both the Amazon and Barnes & Noble stores (iTunes coming soon).

The book is available as an e-book only, but for folks that don’t own a e-book reader it’s very easy to download a free book reader app for your PC, Mac, or tablet from Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

Golden’s 2012 Sustainability Awards

Every year the Sustainability Advisory Board presents Sustainability Awards to Golden residents and organizations. The three recipients this year are all extremely worthy.

From Mayor Sloan’s newsletter:

Three 2012 Sustainability awardees were recognized at the [City Council] meeting. Compass Montessori School (through teacher Erik Albright) was singled out for its environmental education program that fosters students interest and efforts in recycling, food production, farm animals, wildland restoration, and energy conservation. Barbara Rogers, a resident of Golden Ridge Condominiums, was given an award to celebrate her active organization of single-stream recycling for more than 370 condominiums. And Don Cameron, local resident and high school chemistry and physics teacher, was lauded for his long-term sustainability efforts. In particular, Don and his wife Carol have converted space on their lot in the East Street District into a neighborhood garden, allowing several neighbors to use nine plots in this space.

Radio Golden Episode #3: the Beltway Lawsuit, Jeffco’s Emergency Notification System, Downtown Liquor Licenses, and More

Radio Golden Episode #3 features an interview with the executive director of one of the environmental groups suing the federal government to stop the proposed toll highway north of Golden. We also cover Jeffco’s emergency notification system, Golden’s Community Wildfire Community Protection Plan, downtown Golden liquor licenses (and especially outdoor seating), and more. Check out the main podcast (Episode #3) and check out the extended interview with Josh Pollock.

Memorial Service for Vi Hader on Monday, April 16

This photo (from the May 2005 Golden Informer) shows Vi (right) talking with Rick Gardner and Gwyn Green at Gwyn's City Council farewell party.

Some sad news: longtime Golden resident (and my delightful neighbor) Vi Hader passed away a couple of weeks ago. The Denver Post website has an obituary … Vi lived a very full and fascinating life, and contributed a lot to Golden during the sixty-ish years that she lived here. The memorial service is scheduled for Monday, April 16 at the First United Methodist Church in Golden (1500 Ford St.).

Radio Golden Episode #2: Mike Murphy, Sprawl, Rude Trail Users, and More

Radio Golden Episode #2, featuring an interview with Mike Murphy, discussion about sprawl north of Golden and the library’s potential expansion, a rant about rude trail users, and more is available on the Radio Golden website. You can listen to or download Episode #2 and the Episode #2 Extended Interview, or you can just subscribe to the Radio Golden podcast through iTunes.
