Rolling With the Press
A Publisher's Journey

by Edward Lehman
with Suzanne Barrett

Edward Lehman, newspaper publisher and civic leader, grew up in Denver in the 1930s when gangsters and kidnappings were front-page news. His work life began as a paperboy and culminated as owner/publisher of the Longmont Daily Times-Call, the Loveland Daily Reporter-Herald, the Cañon City Daily Record, and the Colorado Hometown Weekly Newspaper. Lehman’s varied professional life also included years as a police reporter, deputy district attorney for Denver, and a stint in the Colorado state legislature.

In Rolling with the Press, Lehman documents his personal story and newspaper career, spanning much of the twentieth and into the twenty-first centuries and reflecting sweeping changes in society, reporting, technology, communication, and business management.

Safe at Last

Elaine Pease wrote Safe at Last: True Stories of Horse Rescues based on her volunteer experience at Colorado Horse Rescue (CHR) in Longmont, Colorado.

Beautiful photographs by Roxanne Capaul illustrate the stories and Mini Pearl, the ‘spokeshorse’ for CHR, pops up throughout the book with tidbits of information about horses.

Elaine Pease is the author of several children's books including the historical novel Ghost Over Boulder Creek.
“Safe at Last is a wonderful and deeply inspirational book, perfect for youngsters.”
