• Colorado Railcar folds

    FORT LUPTON — It was an unceremonious end for Colorado Railcar Manufacturing.

    At 1:50 p.m., Dec. 31, two bankers in long black coats emerged from the main door of the facility, got in their vehicles and drove through half-opened gates leading out of the parking lot. Leaving their vehicles at the side of 14 1/2 Street, the men pulled the gates together, secured them with a padlock and drove away.

  • Discount Tire and Service rolls into Brighton

    Turning hardship into harmony, the new owner of an automotive service center in Brighton is measuring success one car at a time.

    Greeley resident Duane Klinger, owner of Discount Tire and Service at 1820 E. Bridge St. in Brighton, was filling in for the store’s regular manager and took a minute out of the busy shop to answer some questions.

    The first centered on Klinger’s choice of name for his stores, similar to a national tire chain, a similarity Klinger says ends with the level of services his stores provide.
