At the end of our life, what matters more than how charitable we have been throughout our life

When we are remembered at the end of our lives, what do we want people to say? I think about this quite a bit and have interested to hear what others think. Early in my life I wanted to make a ton of money and was focused on being a success in the business world. As I've gotten older, I have realized that family and leaving an appropriate legacy are what matter most to me. I think it is so...

When we are remembered at the end of our lives, what do we want people to say? I think about this quite a bit and have interested to hear what others think. Early in my life I wanted to make a ton of money and was focused on being a success in the business world. As I've gotten older, I have realized that family and leaving an appropriate legacy are what matter most to me. I think it is so important to raise up great children that become productive members of society. The best way to raise children is by example. The way that we live as parents is likely what they will become. I am convinced that philanthropy and helping others is the key to living a successful life.

I am Ryan Van Wagenen and originally from Salt Lake City, Utah and now spend a great deal of time in Denver, Colorado. I have lived my whole life in Utah and Colorado and love the people in these regions.

No hot water common issue for restaurants fined after health inspections

Jimmy Johns Gourmet Sandwiches - 2325 East Colfax Avenue in Denver

This article has 1 other Denver location (Show)

The owner closed his restaurant at 777 East 17th Avenue in Denver but has another location on 32nd, so FOX31’s Erika Gonzalez stopped by to see why they have not paid. Gonzalez asked, “Can you tell me why the health department hasn’t been paid?” The owner was not there and employees didn’t know.

    No hot water common issue for restaurants fined after health inspections
    DENVER -- Every week we go behind kitchen doors for a look at restaurants to ensure food safety. Inspectors fine restaurants for repeat critical violations and for issues like no hot water or a pest infestation. From inspections to collections, it is an expensive and time consuming process designed to keep the public safe.

Danger Zones - Driving in Colorado

Fatal crashes may have one cause or multiple contributing factors. The number of drivers in Colorado involved in deadly accidents while using alcohol or drugs has steadily increased in recent years. Even so, careless/inattentive driving is the leading contributing factor among drivers in fatal crashes.

Recognizing the growing problem of distracted driving, federal transportation researchers in 2012 started categorizing Careless/Inattentive Driving as a separate contributing factor. For more information and patterns over the last seven years check out the interactive map here: knowledgeinitiative.org/interactive-crash-map

    Interactive Crash Map - Deadly Colorado Drivers
    Have you ever wondered where the most drunk driving accidents occur in Colorado? How about the roads where you might be more likely to encounter dangerous distracted drivers? The map above makes it easy for you to see the Danger Zones in Colorado by tracking reports of fatal crashes related to alcohol, drugs and distracted driving.

MLK Marade goes on despite slick conditions

The Marade (a combo of march and parade) starts at E. Colfax Ave. at Columbine, south of City Park. Participants will march straight west along Colfax, ending three miles later at Civic Center Park’s Greek Theater.

    MLK Marade will go on despite slick conditions
    Civil Rights leader Martin Luther King Jr.'s legacy is commemorated in Denver with what has grown to be one of the largest MLK Day celebrations in the U.S. - even larger than that of Washington, D.C. Among the local events set to honor Dr. King is the annual Marade on Monday morning (held rain, snow or shine).

MLK Marade Continues Through Denver Streets Despite Ice, Snow

The Marade began at 10:45 a.m. Monday at the corner of Colfax Ave. and Columbine Street. The Marade continued west toward the State Capitol and ended with a rally at Civic Center Park.

    MLK Marade Continues Through Denver Streets Despite Ice, Snow
    DENVER (CBS4) - Thousands filled the streets of Denver on Monday for the annual MLK Marade to honor the civil rights leader. One of the organizers told CBS4's Tori Mason that Martin Luther King Jr. was arrested, sprayed with water hoses and bitten by dogs to get his message out there, so dealing with icy streets and freezing temperatures seems small in comparison.
