It should be noted that Golden was the headquarters of the KKK in Colorado from some time, starting in the spring 1922 and slowly pettering out. There was a very famous cross burning on South Table Mountain on September 27th 1923 (see http://photoswest.org/photos/11001751/11001874.jpg). Coors Brewing and the Coors family, as much as they may like downplay it, was very envolved in the clan during it's initial formation. I'm unfortunatly (or fortunatly) not living in Golden anymore, otherwise I would get more details from the historical museum there. If anyone is interested in updating this article, that would be the place to go.

The last time I am aware of that someone (an independent documentary filmmaker) tried to link the Coors family with the KKK, the Coors family successfully sued that person for slander, and won a monetary judgement. The Coors family maintained in court that: 1) no member of the Coors family has ever belonged to the KKK, and 2) the property on South Table Mountain on which the cross-burning took place had never belonged to the Coors family. No wonder you didn't sign your post. Plazak (talk) 22:46, 16 February 2008 (UTC)

Echo Company Novels[edit]

Golden is the home town of Michael Jennings, the protagonist of the Echo Company novels by Ellen Emerson White. The last book, The Road Home, is partially set in Golden, is anyone wants to add that.

Unsourced edit[edit]

A bit of assistance from other editors. I have twice reverted an unsourced edit, here and here only to have the editor add it back and taunt me with the three revert rule. The editor created an article about Brianne Nelson, and then added her unsourced to the notable people section of this article. I deleted it because the target article makes no mention of Nelson being from Golden, Colorado. This editor has now suggested that other editors can go look for a source for this edit. Thank you for your assistance. Magnolia677 (talk) 03:59, 26 March 2016 (UTC)

Brianne Nelson[edit]

One last time to resolve this with User:Magnolia677. Brianne Nelson is from Golden, Colorado. The references in that article state this clearly. If any user would like, they can go to the page and check - otherwise, this is a good faith edit and under WP:GF this should edit should not be reverted (nor reverted time and time again that results in a violation of WP:EW). Better yet, any user that would like to improve wikipedia could edit the subject article in question themselves. That would make two better articles - improve the Brianne Nelson and cause this edit of Golden, Colorado to be substantiated and therefore also made better (yes, I could do it, but at this point I have an issue with WP:GF being so clearly disregarded). They could also add a cite for it in the Golden, Colorado article, but this might look odd since it would be the only notable person with a reference (those lack of references don't seem to cause a ton of edit wars). So three choices: improve wikipedia (good), just stop the edit war (neutral), or continue edit war (not so good). RonSigPi (talk) 00:23, 29 March 2016 (UTC)
