Anita Braun, Cripple Creek Today Creator, Webmaster and Author

Hi, my name is Anita Braun; if you’re a local, you likely know me.  I have a few years under my belt as a writer and journalist. (I love to write and educate and that is my personal goal with this blog.) Co-author of Murder in a Small Town, The Secret of Cripple Creek.

“Steering” readers in the right direction!

My husband and I own The Hitchin’ Post Gift Shoppe and Cripple Creek Floral at 333 East Bennett Avenue in Cripple Creek, right next door to City Hall. Stop in and say hello, we’d like to meet you!

We formerly owned the Gold Camp Journal, (among other enterprises), until 2007 when we sold it. Tim started The Gold Camp Journal in 1993 and wrote, edited and published most of it for quite awhile before hiring a reporter to help him out. From 2005 to 2007 I wrote numerous articles for our paper and a few editorials.
