update on coyotes in Baker

this is the coyote that was in our yard daily for more than a week; the picture was taken during a mid-day rain — when dry the coyote looks a lot less scruffy than this; we hazed it extensively and have seen no sign of it since a little over a week ago, but we did hear that people had seen it farther south, on Byers, and that's the direction it was headed when we last hazed it; read on for more coyote exploits and how to deal with coyotes in the neighborhood

coyote near Bannock & Archer — watch your cats!

Divino Wine & Spirits

Divino Wine and Spirits is only a block and a half beyond the southern border of the Baker Neighborhood, but its owner, Dave Moore, is a neighborhood resident.

And, for April of 2011 Dave was selected as the Bike Denver Bike Hero. From the article:

Dave opened his super snazzy south-central Denver wine shop, Divino, (1240 S. Broadway) in 2003, and has been riding his bike to work from his home in Baker ever since. Dave humbly says his commute is only two miles each way
