Lovett’s Neighborhood: Expansive, With A Place For All | Print |  E-mail

by Susan Dugan

Being in a neighborhood ... I feel you should look beyond just where your little life is and make sure you understand what’s going on around you,” says Pat Lovett, president of University Neighbors, the Registered Neighborhood Organization (RNO) representing an area that encompasses the University of Denver and just west. The Colorado native, who graduated from Machebeuf (Catholic) High School, is a University of Colorado at Boulder graduate who spent most of her career employed as a manager at Oppenheimer Mutual Funds in Denver, most recently as head of human resources. Four years ago, she quit to launch her own career-coaching business.

Give Thanks For Successes, Bounty & Recharge For Spring | Print |  E-mail

by Joan Hinkemeyer

In November, nature exhales slowly and quietly, signaling a time for rest. After October’s brilliant extravaganza, the curtain slowly descends to the fading sounds of our appreciative applause. Colorful costumes and striking backdrops vanish as nature shifts to the quiet beige of this month – a still month that seems suspended between summer’s lush verdancy and winter’s stark slumber.

Too much angst

can make you grumble.

Giving thanks

can make you humble.

 

There’s always plenty of both to deal with, even in charming UPark. Too much traffic, too much building, too many leaves falling, good grief – it’s just too-too-too. And yet, such great neighbors, such nice parks, such beautiful trees (even so). We are fortunate to live here.

Wash Park Upgrades

Better Late Than ...

Dear Editor:

Just a quick note on parks. After many years as a casual Wash Park user/visitor, it’s been fascinating to see the      new additions appear this summer. Too bad World War III between neighbors, users and Parks & Rec was necessary to get kinda basic customer-friendly add-ons – prominent rules-holding sandwich board signs at entrances, and an adequate number of porta-potties – in the park. (I’ve even seen similar new additions at other Denver parks this summer.) To think a little planning and management long, long ago could’ve minimized – or even avoided all of the “hostilities” and made the parks better for everyone.

Giving Thanks Involves The Act Of Giving; Just Speaking Of Gratitude Doesn’t Cut It | Print |  E-mail

by Paul Kashmann

I love Thanksgiving. It sits in a first place tie with 4th of July for my favorite holiday celebration. Absent is any Christmas-like shopping mania aiming to ensure that every possible human being on my contact list is given adequate material assurance that they hold a highly regarded place in my heart.
