Please stay safe and keep kindness in your hearts.

Farewell to the Front Page, a Note From the Managing Editor

Life can be full of surprises.

I never expected to make writing a career in any capacity, but here we are. I began working here at the paper as a writer, a reporter, a student who had so much to learn and so far to go. I never expected to find the friendships that I did, to find all of the small joys that lay hidden throughout the school, or to find my path that will hopefully lead me to new horizons. 

This School House Rocks!

Written by Elena Tran

In the middle of Olde Town Arvada there sits a quaint, red brick building on the corner of W. 57th Avenue and Olde Wadsworth Boulevard. At first, it may seem like nothing more than a vintage school, but walking up to the building you’ll find the words “Arvada School House Kitchen and Libations” across the glass window. Built in 1882, it was a one-room childhood school for the small town. After the construction of Arvada High School, the building was repurposed into a movie theater through World War II until 2015, when the Spears family transformed it into the Schoolhouse restaurant it is today. I had the pleasure of trying out this unique restaurant with my sister and her husband; together, we entered the warm building seeking shelter from the cold.

Golden’s Hidden Gem

Written by Alan West

In what I can only describe as the most literal sense of “hole in the wall” restaurant, D’Deli is perhaps the embodiment of this old American phrase. Occupying a space no more than 20-feet wide on the busy street of Washington Avenue in Golden, D’Deli has been serving up some of the best sandwiches for nearly 50 years.  With a focus on locally grown ingredients and a (mostly) health focused menu, it’s easy to see why D’Deli has received multiple awards over the years, including being voted the best sandwich shop in Jefferson County for the last four years running.
