Accel at Golden Ridge Presents “After the Diagnoses”

October 22, 2018

Accel at Golden Ridge - After the Diagnosis

Update:  This event has been rescheduled to November 15th.
This Thursday from 6-7:30PM, Accel at Golden Ridge will host the first of five evenings with the Hammond Law Group.  The topic is “After the Diagnoses: Scrambling to Put the Pieces Together.”

When a family member is diagnosed with cancer or dementia, there are no easy solutions or quick fixes.  The months ahead will be difficult and taxing.  One of the best ways to ease the burden and provide peace of mind is to ensure your wishes are carried out and no matter how the disease progresses. In this presentation, Attorney Catherine Hammond will guide participants through planning for the five key issues that must be addressed, to ensure your family can navigate an uncertain future.

Appetizers and beverages will be served.  Please RSVP at 303-317-5002 or

Another Auction: The Briarwood Inn

October 20, 2018

Briarwood Inn Auction - Golden Colorado

Yesterday I wrote about the auction of Heritage Square’s rides and equipment.  Then I received a flyer about another auction here in Golden: this time it’s the Briarwood Inn.  Here’s the information provided by the auction company:

Auction Highlights
After over 40 years as a family owned restaurant and staple of Golden the owners of The Briarwood Inn have decided to move on to other life adventures. This public online auction to include: heating and cooking equipment, roll in convection oven, refrigeration, plating and catering for large banquets, smallwares, dining tables and chairs, bar equipment, wine cellar racks, chandeliers, imported antiques, patio furniture, fountains, outdoor lighting, sheds and a Large digital outdoor street sign.

You can view images of the available objects online, inspect them in person (map) on October 23rd, from 9AM-4PM (UPDATED TIME), and bid online starting now.  The auction lots will close starting at 1PM on October 24th, so have your final bid in by then.

Golden residents have enjoyed many good meals and happy occasions at the Briarwood, and it’s sad to see it go. This auction is your chance to buy a keepsake.

You may be wondering what will happen next on that property.  Confluence, which is the company that developed the 8th Street Apartments (across the street from the Briarwood) and is building the new sophomore apartment building across from Safeway plans to redevelop the Briarwood property.  They visited GURA in May to discuss their early concept of apartments and a boutique hotel.  GURA discussed the possibility of providing a tax incentive if they included low-income housing in the mix.  The Planning Department expected to receive an updated plan from Confluence this month, which may be discussed at a Planning Commission meeting in November.

Do you need a merry-go-round for the yard?

Table Mountain Vision Clinic: Think Twice About the Spooky Lenses

October 18, 2018

Table Mountain Vision - Golden Colorado

What better way to dress up as your favorite creature this Halloween than spooky contact lenses?

Dr. Jackson-Condon and Dr. Peterson urge you to think of other fun ways to trick or treat, as these contact lenses can actually be quite dangerous to your eye health!  The only safe way to wear contacts is to go to your optometrist, where you can be fit for lenses specific to you and your eyes.  Contacts are not one-size-fits-all devices and can cause serious injury.  The cornea, which is the front, clear membrane of the eye covering the pupil and iris can become easily damaged.  Corneal abrasions, infections, and impaired vision are all serious side effects that can be caused by contact lenses not acquired through an eye doctor.  The FDA specifically lists boutiques, novelty and Halloween stores as places to not safely buy contact lenses.  Take care of your eyes this Halloween!
