As part of the paper’s 150-year celebration, our reporters have been hitting the streets and talking to locals in the know, to capture all sorts of stories about Golden, whether they be funny or frightful. Insightful or irreverent. The videos, called Golden Stories, are shared on the paper’s website, and here, in text form, to help celebrate the unique community which the Transcript has served for so long.
Back on June 2, the Golden Chamber of Commerce threw its first Golden Street Fair of the summer. This year’s three street fairs are being co-sponsored by the Golden Transcript. At the fair, our staff decided to capture some more Golden Stories, asking a couple folks about what they love about the city.

“I really love history, and I love that the Golden Transcript has been recording history for 150 years,” Golden local Barb Warden was kind enough to say.
Videos of a couple of those respondents can be seen on Goldentranscript.net, along with previous Golden Stories.
Two more summer street fairs are planned, 5-9 p.m. on July 1, and 5-8 p.m. on Aug. 12, each along Washington Avenue.
See you there!
