Youth AwardThe mayors and commissioners of Adams County are asking for nominations for the Adams County Mayors and Commissioners Youth Awards (ACMCYA). This award focuses on teenagers who have triumphed over great odds and serve as inspirations and role models for their peers.

Each year, this program recognizes young people in grades 6-12 who have overcome personal adversity to create a positive change in their own lives or for those around them. If this sounds like a person who may not be in a school setting but is under the age of 20, those nominations will also be accepted.

This program provides businesses, the community and civic leaders an opportunity to actively demonstrate their support for the young people in all of our communities and recognize them for their accomplishments. Businesses may also help by making a monetary or in-kind donation.

If you know of a student who would be a good candidate to be recognized by the community, please help us identify them. Contact Abby Martinez at the City of Brighton Office of Youth Services at 303-655-2186 or for a nomination form or for questions about the program.

The deadline to submit your nomination is January 25, 2019.

Offered by Mark Greene – Shutters & Shades Window Fashions

At Shutters & Shades Window Fashions, we believe Quality and Price should go hand-in-hand. For over 30 years we have strived to give home owners quality window treatments at an affordable price. Alta window blinds does just that! Whether you are looking for a 2” Faux Wood Blind, the more decorative Window Shadings, or Plantation Shutters, we can fulfill your needs.

In 1988, we moved to a suburb in Central Ohio very much like Brighton Co. New construction was everywhere, providing a great demand for window coverings. Having grown up hanging draperies in my father’s business, and looking for a new opportunity to help raise a family, I started Shutters & Shades Window fashions. In 1988, the only treatments available were 1 & ½ inch metal mini blinds. Hunter Douglas Window Fashions was just introducing the Honeycomb Shades which, being an exclusive Hunter Douglas dealer, we made available to our customers. Over the next few years, Hunter Douglas introduced many innovative window treatments which allowed us to replace draperies with beautiful new products.

Recently, we have relocated to Brighton where we continue to provide the same Quality with great Prices. Along with product and price, we offer free in-home consultation (we bring the samples to you), and free installation by a certified installer with over 30 years of experience.

Susan KlineLooking toward 2019, it’s sometimes difficult to muster the energy to begin the New Year. Each year has its highs and lows, but, how we relate to them makes all the difference in the outcome. We can look back fondly at 2018 and know that our challenges have given us a better insight into who we really are. That knowledge is powerful and can be carried into 2019.

Moving into the new year, there’s an opportunity to take what we’ve learned and add to that more knowledge to become our best selves. We’ve included some thought provoking items for you to work toward your best 2019 and we hope they will offer good ideas to ponder. Most of all, we can look at the new year with enthusiasm for its blank canvas and our daily ability to paint a positive picture for our lives in 2019.

These pages are filled with valuable resources for every aspect of your lives. We draw your attention to special events that are listed to round out your January. We welcome a number of new advertisers who widen the resources available in The Brighton Buzz. Below is a quote to carry with you in your 2019 journey.


Take a leap of faith,
and begin this new year by believing.
Believe in yourself.
And believe there is a loving Source

Offered by Brian Holley – Farmers Insurance

It’s been a year of many changes and incidents. As Christmas and New Year come around the corner, take a long view approach at your protection and investments. Business climate changes as do our life situations.

When it comes to investing, time is your friend. Not timing the market, that’s pretty much impossible, but time in the market. Even when the markets move down rapidly, keeping a long-term horizon in your head can help keep you from panicking.

We’ve put a lot of time into creating an investment plan that is focused on helping you to achieve your long-term goals. When significant market changes happen, it’s a good time to review our plan, and make sure that it can withstand changing economic forces.

One of the best things you can do for your finances is to understand how the right investments and insurance; combined with a long-term outlook can work to help you achieve your financial goals.
The example of the 100-year-old enjoying a 40-year retirement (and counting!) is an inspiration for taking that long view and planning appropriately.

Take a Long View

Offered by: Chris Fushimi – A Mattress & More LLC

If you have noticed in the latest mattress ads and commercials, gel memory foam is gaining more and more in popularity. Today I will explain the differences between memory foam and gel memory foam.
Memory foam and gel memory foam are both popular in mattresses because they support and conform to your body better than the traditional inner springs. Many people like them because they feel like they are being “cuddled” by their bed. Another reason people like the memory foam and gel memory foam is because they isolate your movements. That just means, when you roll over at night, your spouse will not feel it as much.

The main difference between the two foams is the addition of the gel. These gel beads infused into the mattress are designed to wick away heat and keep you cool through the night. Research has shown that a cooler bed makes for a better night’s sleep for most. Some may feel, especially in the winter, that a warm bed is desirable. In the case of standard memory foam, it does not pull away your body heat, and you will start to sweat, and the opposite will happen because the sweat will make you cold.

One of the disadvantages to both memory foams, especially with the elderly, is that they feel like it is harder to get out of bed. They don’t have the springs to assist in sitting up and exiting. The traditional innerspring or the new hybrid mattresses may be a better option in this case, and I will discuss these choices next month.

Call Chris at A Mattress & More LLC to try out all their gel memory foam options today. 303.902.3361

The holiday season is reaching peak energy at Thollot Diamonds and Fine Jewelry. The store is in the midst of celebrating the successful launch of their 7th annual Diamonds for Diabetes fundraising event, running now through December 31st. Expecting a large turnout of holiday shoppers this season, store owner Troy and Joy Thollot would like to encourage all of their customers to take part in the festivities of the event and also give immense thanks to those who already have.

Diamonds for Diabetes is a yearly effort to raise money for children and families affected by type 1 diabetes. The fund drive was motivated by the diagnosis of Troy and Joy’s daughters, Danielle and Morgan, and is powered by the dream that all children have access to the expensive supplies required to treat this relentless disease. Every year, Thollot Jewelers puts up a tree decorated with hundreds of ornaments filled with an assortment of jewelry and gems. For a donation of $25, a customer can pick an ornament off the tree and open it to find anything from a beautiful gemstone to a piece of fine jewelry. 100% of every donation goes directly to the Children’s Diabetes Foundation in Denver.

As the Thollot family prepares for another wonderful holiday season, they would again like to extend their gratitude to the community members who participate in the spirit of charity and generosity inside and outside these final months of the year. While celebrating their 25th year in the jewelry business, the Thollot staff wishes everyone and their families the best and will be delighted to help you find the perfect gift to give this season.

Offered by Brian Margolis, The Margolis Team

The local Brighton, Reunion, Henderson, Ft. Lupton and Thornton areas have had another strong year. A healthy real estate year is closer to the 3% appreciation. Some would say our market is going down. I disagree. I see the current trend as seasonality and a much needed cooling off. This is due to the average price of a home being almost $500,000 in the Denver Market area and the increase of mortgage interest rates from their historic lows.

So what does 2019 bring for our local market? We will find out. My forecast predicts about a 4% appreciation for home values. That would make us a very healthy market and reduce the risk for a strong pullback or even severe losses like we all felt about 10 years ago.
