Golden Ridge Condos Home to Sculptured Wildlife
This story ran in the October issue of the Golden Transcript. The reporter, Amy Woodward, stopped by and spoke to me (Don Marion), and Lueb Popoff (the artist) for ten minutes. She then came by at a later date to take photos. We did not have the chance to see what she wrote prior to the story running, to check the facts. The biggest mistake she wrote, I (Don), took over as property manager in 2004. This is when I purchased a unit. I did not start working here untill late 2009. All in all it was a nice article.

Golden Ridge Strikes Gold With City
On April 11th, during the City Council's business meeting, Don Marion the property manager representing GRCA, presented a proposal for the Golden City Matching Neighborhood Grant Fund. At the north entrance of Golden Ridge Rd, where Golden Circle intersects, there are two dead cottonwood trees that must be removed this spring.Our proposal is to make both the trees into art work statues, like we did at the entryway of the clubhouse with the Fox and the Fox kit. Lueb Popoff , the very talented artist, proposed one tree having two curious black bear cubs looking towards the other tree, which has a majestic Golden Eagle looking over her two chicks in a nest. The cost of this project is $5000 and The Golden City Council awarded Golden Ridge the first matching grant of 2013 in the sum of $2500 dollars, thus paying for half the project . City Council voted unanimously(7-0) to award us the matching grant . The city of Golden will use this project as a showpiece for their neighborhood matching grant fund. This artwork will be seen and enjoyed by many everyday. Not only GRCA residents, but everyone going to Panorama Med Center, folks walking to the new lite rail, and all the other businesses in that area. We will keep you posted as we move along with this exciting new addition to our neighborhood.

No Vacancy at Golden Ridge Pond
It's hard to believe that less then 60 years ago, the Canadian goose was on the endangered species list, but that's a fact. Certain times of the year, Golden and Golden Ridge seem to be pledged by flocks of geese, and we also have a small number of resident geese. Last year we constructed two nesting stations, the one on the south side of the pond was occupied by a nesting pair we call Sonny and Cher and the other nesting station that's on the west side of the pond remain vacant. Sonny and Cher had a brood consisting of 7 gosling, 6 of which survived through the long winter. This spring, both the nesting stations are occupied. No vacancy at Golden Ridge Pond. By mid May we should have two families of newborn geese. Our pond is also frequented by the same Great Blue Heron, Snowy Egret, two very funny male Mallard ducks called Laurel and Hardy, a Black Knighted Heron, a Cormoran, as well as two very rare( for Colorado) Tufted Ducks have been spotted and photographed. So, if you're on your evening or morning walk, stroll by the pond and enjoy the beautiful water fowl that call Golden Ridge home for the summer.

1. Legitimate (not pirated) DVD's for lending out or watching at the Clubhouse big-screen TV.
2. Books in good shape and of current interest.
3. Recent issues of magazines.
