    Beautiful area. Lived nearby for several years.

    Good thing the OT rule will apply to the SE, as the limited circulation exemption only applies to newspapers or newspaper groups with a total circulation of less than 4,000. You'll also be driving a lot and dealing with traffic. It's quite a haul going from Columbine to Evergreen and Idaho Springs.
