The Golden High School PTA will meet at 5:30 at the school (701 24th St.).

Golden Beer Talks will take place tonight at 6:30 at Windy Saddle Cafe. Lisa S. Gardiner, PhD will discuss Tales from an Uncertain World: What Other Assorted Disasters Can Teach Us About Climate Change. Tonight’s beer comes from Hogshead 54 Brewery. Food and beer will be available at 6PM, with the speaker starting around 6:35PM. Following the presentation, they’ll take a brief intermission before Q + A, wrapping up around 7:45PM.

GoFarm will request an economic incentive for a proposed new greenhouse that will grow food. A property owner in the Goosetown neighborhood has offered the use of his property. The requested incentive would be to have the City provide a water tap on the property, which would be worth a minimum of $29,000. Staff will suggest a couple of alternatives. Staff will also provide an update on several on-going projects, such as this year’s agreement with Traxion and the proposed Local Business Awareness program.

We’re compiling a list of St. Patrick’s Day celebrations for this weekend, but here’s one I need to mention early: the Golden Elks are hosting a St. Patrick’s Day dinner at 6PM Saturday night, with corned beef & cabbage, mashed potatoes, Irish sausage, Irish soda bread, and dessert for $25. If you’re interested, you need to RSVP today: leadk.gel2740@gmail.com or golden274@gmail.com.

Twelve Years of Golden News

February 16, 2019

February is the anniversary month for Goldentoday.com. I’ve been doing this for twelve years now! Do you ever wonder why? I do it because I think it’s good for the community to have a single place that covers cultural, city, and business events all in the same place. I do it because I’ve found that people like knowing what’s happening in the community.

By 2007 (Goldentoday’s “birth” year), I had been peripherally involved with the Golden Cultural Alliance for several years, so my first self-appointed charter was to help them promote cultural exhibits and events.

In 2007 there was still much attention focused on downtown’s recovery and ensuring that downtown businesses remained viable, so I began promoting business events as well. (There weren’t as many back then: believe it or not, Golden used to go a month at a time with no live music anywhere.)

In recent years, I’ve been following board and commission meetings, so now I include the topics for upcoming city meetings, along with cultural and business events. I’ve found that Golden residents are tremendously interested in municipal news.

I plan to keep tracking local events, and I’ll keep sharing what I learn. Thanks for following my daily musings. Feel free to drop me a line anytime!

Barb Warden


Yesterday, I said that more information about the Jeffco Open Space land swap would appear on Guiding Golden, but in fact, it appeared on the Jefferson County Site. They will have two public meetings–March 2 at 9:30AM and March 5 at 5:30PM–to tell people more about the swap and to answer questions. The information about the City’s possible Coors property acquisition is now on Guiding Golden.
