Education foundation names new program officer
The Foundation for Excellence in Learning and Education announced that Jana Hoisington Matthews has been named as its program officer. Matthews will be responsible for general operations and program management, and the implementation of the foundation’s programs, which includes the on-line School Supply Drive Matching Program in partnership with EZ School Supplies in Golden and the Action Center in Lakewood.
Matthews holds a bachelor’s degree in history and political science, and a master’s degree in clinical mental health counseling. Her most recent federal appointment was as associate director for faith-based and community initiatives at the Department of Health and Human Services. The Foundation for Excellence in Learning and Education’s mission is to support the provision of supplies and learning programs to improve and enhance existing educational opportunities, particularly for disadvantaged children and communities.
Citywide fire ban
Due to dry weather and strong winds, the Golden Fire Department (GFD) is imposing a temporary fire ban within the city limits.
All open burning, including bonfires, open flame torches and welding in wildfire risk areas, and model rockets are prohibited.
Exceptions to these temporary restrictions include: supervised public fireworks displays by a state licensed operator (subject to specific fire department operational-permit requirements); outdoor cooking fires contained within commercial gas-fueled grills, enclosed wood or wood-pellet grills or smokers; enclosed outdoor fireplaces or chimineas; powered yard equipment for landscape purposes; any federal, state or local law enforcement officer or member of an organized rescue or firefighting force in the performance of an official duty.
The fire restrictions will remain in effect indefinitely. Fire Chief John Bales will continue to monitor the risks and reassess as the weather changes.
