Welcome to the neighborhood

Ted and Lynn Tice moved to Castle Pines in June from Chicago, Illinois where they both were born and raised. They were drawn to Colorado because of the active lifestyle which they had enjoyed when they lived here while Ted was employed by CoBank from 2004 through 2008.
During the first week in their new home the Tices had a surprise visit from a large bear that was intrigued by the trash they had left outside for the weekly pickup.
“Thanks to good neighbors who watch out for things in our neighborhood, the run-in with the bear had a good outcome. We were unaware that the bear was in our yard until our neighbors called to warn us. I could have walked around the corner of the house and come face to face with him.”
