Kathy and Mike Anderson
My husband and I have lived in our house on Nevada Avenue for thirty years. Our two children were born and raised here and graduated from Steele, North, and Palmer before continuing to college. I have been involved as an education professional in many capacities from preschool to high school, ever since my graduation from Colorado College.
I currently am co-owner of Anderson Analytics, an economic research and consulting firm. I spend many hours volunteering on the Old North End Neighborhood Board, the Neighbors for a Safe North Nevada group, and the North End Woodlands group.
Dan Tynan and Nancy Ekberg
Dan Tynan and his wife, Nancy Ekberg, both work at Colorado College. Although Dan recently retired from the English department after 46 years, he stays connected by teaching two blocks a year. He has taught a course on "Nature and the Environment" for many years, often in collaboration with a Biology professor. Nancy Ekberg teaches and coaches early music in the Music Department at CC, and performs Medieval, Renaissance and Baroque music on early instruments with her student group twice yearly. They both love their jobs and love walking to work! They have three grown sons raised in the same house on North Tejon for 28 years and have cherished the old-fashioned environment of the neighborhood. The boys grew up playing soccer on the street, basketball at CC outdoor courts, and family bike rides. The closeness with neighbors of all ages has been deeply fulfilling over the decades, and the beauty of the trees and bushes has helped this urban wildlife to flourish, amuse, and enrich us all. Although we have lived in other areas of this city, we feel most at home right here in the North End.

NEW Logo Designer
As a designer, Arley’s goal has always been to create beautiful things that serve a meaningful purpose. After graduating from Parsons the New School for Design in 2004, she left the hurried lifestyle of New York City to pursue a slower pace of life that allowed for spontaneous campfires, late-night jam sessions and plenty of time to cook, draw, and love. Her life-long passion for drawing has developed into a fanaticism for old-fashioned sign painting and hand-lettering – a style that has become one of the most identifiable features of Ladyfingers Letterpress.
