Overview of the Queman's Korner

As almost a lifetime resident of Commerce City I felt compelled to put together a
website about life and concerns in our community.  We have several fine papers
reporting in this community but they are issued on a weekly basis.  The Korner,
hopefully will get some of this info out the community a wee bit faster.  See more
in our about us page.
The Korner is in initials stage of construction and will slowly evolve into the site
I envision it to be, so bear with me and bit by bit it will develop hopefully into
the alternative news source for the Commerce City community.  I welcome your
information included will go no further then my server unless you give
permission to release it.  Because concerns within the community are
developing so quickly I hastily put up this web site, please forgive me for any
errors you may find, (IE; spelling, grammar, etc).  
Hello, I'm Larry Quintana, aka "Q!" or the Qman, my moniker since 1964
given me by an army buddy who couldn't pronounce my last name.  Lets see,
ever you desire along with your favorite pastry, toast, bagel or what ever
world.  I tossed in a couple of recent pictures of myself, if you want to put a
face to the name on the articles I write.  I have shed the moustache and long
hair, but not the motorcycle and guitar.

Issues covered in our meeting included, the curtailing of train noise that wake members
of the area in the early morning hours.  A very exciting discussion on the annexation of
the community by CC, a discussion that will be followed up in the not to distant future
with answers to the many questions that were brought up.  Thoughts on how we can
include more and more of the Hispanic community into the groups were also discussed.  

The main focus of the meeting evolved around an effort to gather together with
community of Perl Mack and what is called the Goat Hill community to celebrate and
share goals and hopes for future relationships with neighborhood groups.  Also included
in this joint meeting each group will share their history, goals and issues.  It is expected
that County Commissioners will be present to speak to the groups.  More details on this
venture later.

On another note, some may have read my last editorial I made mention of the
recognition of John Lange and his efforts in restoring and developing the music
programs in the school district.  I joined with the community members in congratulating
John in this effort and furthermore his acknowledgement of the workers at all levels in
the district in this effort.  Yesterday in an article written by Monte Whaley, John’s
efforts were displayed for the state to see a very positive picture of the students, the
school district and the community.  I encourage all to read the story and I will attempt to
put a link to the story on my site.  Once again I join with the community in saying thanks
to the School District, its administration and the members of the school staff for this
accomplishment.
