Common Signs You Need Dishwasher Repair in Centennial, COUnusual Cooking Times
Clean Dishes Are Cool to Touch After Removing: For dishes to be clean and germ-free, you need hot, soapy water for washing. The FDA recommends using water around 110 degrees Fahrenheit, which is uncomfortable for handwashing but perfect for dishwashing machines. If you find that your dishes are cold and clammy instead of hot and steamy when you remove them, your dishwasher might need a new heating coil.
Dishwasher Isn't Draining: You'll know quickly if your dishwasher isn't draining properly because there will be a pool of water under your machine. If you're dealing with drainage problems, it could be due to a clogged drainage system or non-functioning pump.
Leaky Dishwasher: As one of our most requested appliance repairer services, we help customers deal with leaky dishwashers all the time. This common problem can be caused by a damaged door gasket, leaky dishwasher tub, loose valve, or another issue.
Common Signs You Need Refrigerator Repair in Centennial, CO
Loud Humming and Vibrating Noises: Hearing vibrating and humming sounds from your fridge is not uncommon. In fact, these noises are a normal part of your refrigerator's operation. However, they shouldn't be very noisy at all. If you hear unusually loud knocking, humming, or vibrating, you could have a problem on your hands. Whether it's a faulty compressor or a blocked condenser fan, our team will diagnose the problem and get to work fixing your fridge.
Spoiled Food: The whole point of putting your food in the refrigerator is so it doesn't spoil. So, if you notice your food spoiling prematurely, it's a good sign that you need appliance repair for your refrigerator. Because of the nature of these repairs, it's important to hire a licensed repair technician to find and correct the root cause of your problem.
Water on Floor Underneath Fridge: If you spot standing water under your refrigerator, it's a big cause for concern. Not just for the health of your appliance, but for water leaking into your home. Usually, leaks are caused by trapped condensation due to clogged pipes or hoses. You'll need an experienced refrigerator repair tech to clear blockages and ultimately solve your leaking problem.
Common Signs You Need Oven or Stove Repair in Centennial, CO
Unusual Cooking Times: Are your grandma's time-tested recipes being burnt or undercooked? Have you had to change cooking times for your family's favorite meals? Unusual differences in cooking times are a telltale sign that your oven needs to be repaired by a professional.
Oven Won't CloseElectrical Problems: It might seem minor on the surface, but when your oven door doesn't close, you can't cook your food properly. Chances are you need a licensed oven repair technician to refit or replace the hinges on your oven door, so you can get back to cooking.
Electrical Problems: If you have an electric oven and notice that it cuts off during cooking or won't turn on at all, you might need oven repair. Like gas, electrical problems are best remedied by professionals, like those you'll find at Centennial's Best Appliance Repair.

CIM Group has signed a long-term lease with RevGen Partners, Inc., a Denver-based full-service business and technology consulting firm, for 10,000 square feet of office space at LoDo Towers in Denver.
LoDo Towers is a two-building office campus comprising a 13-story, approximately 225,000-square-foot tower at 1331 17th St. and a 16-story, approximately 196,000-square-foot tower at 1401 17th St., in addition to two adjacent parking garages, in the Lower Downtown Denver neighborhood.
Founded in 2008, RevGen Partners serves Fortune 500 and mid-market companies across various industries, providing services in customer experience, analytics and insights, and digital enablement. RevGen will occupy space on the 12th floor of 1331 17th St. at LoDo Towers to serve as its new corporate headquarters. The company anticipates relocating from its current location in Centennial in early 2023.
“As we plan for RevGen’s future, downtown Denver is an obvious fit for our new headquarters,” said RevGen CEO, Kirk Mielenz. “The tremendous investment going into downtown’s status as a vibrant center for business, dining, culture, and entertainment is a big draw. We are excited to build a space in LoDo Towers that will be a desirable and accessible place for our employees, clients, and community to collaborate and connect.”
Since acquiring LoDo Towers in 2018, CIM Group has modernized the buildings with new entries and an expansive lobby. Tenants have access to an amenity center, providing lounge areas, a game space, a fitness center, and a training and event room with state-of-the-art technology. Earlier this year LoDo Towers received the UL Verified Healthy Building Mark that denotes it has excellent indoor air quality (IAQ), an important achievement in sustainability and wellness that aligns with CIM Group’s focus on Environmental, Social and Governance standards.
“LoDo Towers is well located in central downtown Denver which is a dynamic mixed-use environment with office space, residences, retailers, restaurants, entertainment and cultural venues. We believe RevGen’s decision to move into downtown Denver demonstrates the continued strength of the area as a compelling office location,” said Shaul Kuba, co-founder and principal, CIM Group.
LoDo Towers offer unobstructed views of the Rocky Mountains and notable sites in downtown Denver, including Union Station and Coors Field. The property is located in Denver’s bustling central business district with abundant shopping, dining, and entertainment options and convenient access to rail and bus services at Union Station as well as Interstate 25.
CIM Group has been an active owner, developer, and operator in Denver for more than 10 years. In addition to LoDo Towers, CIM’s Denver portfolio includes 9th+Co, an urban infill mixed-use project with a variety of retail, restaurants and entertainment alongside residential options; Ella CityHomes at 9th+Co, a collection of 35 luxury townhomes; and The Lex at Lowry, a 710-unit apartment community.

There’s a new company set to operate in the Permian Basin, born of the merger of Centennial Resource Development and Colgate Energy.
Now known as Permian Resources Corp., the company is headquartered in Midland and plans to list its Class A common stock on NASDAQ under the ticker symbol PR. The stock will then transfer to the New York Stock Exchange around Sept. 12.
“It’s been a long evolution,” observed Will Hickey, one of the founders of Colgate who now serves as co-chief executive officer of Permian Resources.
Speaking by telephone with the Reporter-Telegram, he said Colgate “had a good run of value creation over the last six-and-a-half years” and was looking for ways to drive further value creation, with an initial public offering among the options. He and James Walter, co-founder of Colgate and now co-CEO of Permian Resources, came to believe that combining Colgate and Centennial would maximize efforts to create value, bringing together two complementary, high-quality asset bases in the Delaware Basin.
Hickey said headquartering the company in Midland was a key piece of the deal.
“Being here was important to us, given how long we’ve been in Midland and what Midland means to us,” Hickey said. “It creates a strategic competitive edge for us: It’s close to the fields, our team can get there in a quick drive, the deals and relationships with the service companies are all done on the ground here.”
The combination of Colgate and Centennial has turned Permian Resources into the largest pure-play Delaware Basin exploration and production company with deep inventory of high-quality drilling locations on about 180,000 net acres.
Hickey said that, as the new corporate name implies, the company will remain focused on the Delaware. When he and Walter were forming Colgate, he said, the Delaware was in its infancy. But now operators have “cracked the code” of the Delaware, driving down costs and increasing production.
“The Delaware has gone from what some hoped it could be to become the premier basin in the US,” he said, adding that he and Walter see more growth potential in the Delaware than the Midland Basin.
Currently, the company is operating an eight-rig drilling program and expects to go to a seven-rig program in November, delivering between 140,000 and 150,000 barrels of oil equivalent during the fourth quarter. For 2023, the company plans to continue a seven-rig program with the potential to reduce its rig count assuming operational efficiencies. The rigs will spud around 145 wells and the company will complete approximately 150 gross wells. Crude oil production growth is targeted at 10 percent in the fourth quarter of 2023 over the fourth quarter of 2022.
During 2023, the company anticipates its operating activity to be split relatively evenly between New Mexico and Texas. The company will focus the majority of its New Mexico activity in the Second and Third Bone Spring Sand intervals, while its Texas development will concentrate in the Third Bone Spring Sand and Wolfcamp intervals.
Hickey said he and Walter will continue the model they put in place while developing Colgate: Building the company around generating free cash flow and shareholder returns. “Any growth needs to be founded with the goal of maximizing returns,” he said.
The pandemic, he continued, taught the industry a lot about how to treat a balance sheet and how to run a low-cost operation. For the industry to be sustainable, he said it needs to maximize free cash flow and provide low-cost hydrocarbons.
“For Permian Resources, we want to be a major producer through investing free cash flow, returning cash to shareholders and being good stewards of the environment.” For example, Centennial has a large water recycling facility the company plans to retain, and the company will continue work to reduce flaring.
He said the company will focus on ESG – Environment, Social and Governance – initiatives to show the company plans to be in business for the long run.
“We want to be leaders in the field and in the community,” he said.
Walter added, “We’re excited to grow our presence in Midland. Many of the Centennial people will be moving to Midland and we’re also looking to grow our presence in Midland through hiring. We’re a fast-growing company, we have a great culture, we’re looking to add to the team, and we’re excited about our future as Permian Resources.”

San Francisco Opera Ball back in full opulence for 100th anniversary

“Party animal” is usually just an expression. But when Katie Jarman chaired San Francisco Opera Ball in 2005 there was a literal one in attendance.
That year’s theme was “Midnight at the Oasis,” as the opening opera was Rossini’s “The Italian Girl in Algiers,” and Jarman recalled, “we knew we wanted a camel for the ball to complete the mood.”
“We finally found one, Kazzy, who lived on a farm in Santa Rosa as a therapy camel,” she said. “As people got out of their cars on Van Ness Avenue one of the first things they saw was Kazzy.”
Thankfully, Kazzy was well-behaved and “didn’t spit once,” said Jarman. And the camel set the tone for the evening, which also featured such an over-the-top party design by Robert Fountain that it was documented by Food Network host Giada DeLaurentiis for a segment on her series “Behind the Bash.”
Other opera balls have seen French poodles greet patrons, fan dancers and live orange trees full of fruit. In creating this year’s entrance at the San Francisco Opera’s centenary celebration on Friday, Sept. 9, chairs Jack Calhoun and Maryam Muduroglu looked to the company’s roots.
A handful of performers dressed as 1920s flappers welcomed guests on the turquoise carpeted steps of San Francisco City Hall. They were a reminder of how much has changed in the last century but also, how the glitz of celebrations sometimes shine brighter after turmoil.
When the San Francisco Opera was founded in 1922, the city was still reeling from a world war and a different pandemic. Now as the city continues to recover from the effects of the coronavirus pandemic guests at the first Opera Ball since 2019 seemed ready to embrace the pomp the night is known for.
“After everything the last two years, tonight is going to be the party of the century,” said San Francisco Opera General Director Matthew Shilvock. “I think we’re all still feeling that energy of what it means to come back and make and experience art together.”
New to the Opera Ball was San Francisco Ballet Artistic Director Tamara Rojo, recently hired to take the helm after Helgi Tomasson retired from the company earlier this year. Rojo won’t move to the city from London full time until December but wanted to show her support for her colleagues at the Opera.
Joined by San Francisco Ballet Executive Director Danielle St.Germain-Gordon, who also recently took the helm in March, it was Rojo’s first time attending a non-Ballet event in the city.
“In the states, there are few opera companies with global reputations. This is one of them,” said Rojo, adding that she hopes the Ballet gets an opportunity to collaborate with the Opera in the future.
The Opera Ball has been one of the most anticipated and traditional nights on the city’s social calendar since it was first held in the summer of 1941. With its white-tie dress code, it continues to be one of the most formal evenings in the Bay Area.
“The Opera Ball has always been the jewel in the crown for the city and continues to be that way,” said Mary Poland, who chaired the Ball in 2010. “The feedback I always get from people from Chicago and New York when they come out for the Ball is, ‘Boy, do you know how to throw a party in San Francisco.’ ”
This year’s Opera Ball at City Hall was designed by Blueprint Studios. Pink feather trees took pride of place on the Charlotte Maillard Shultz staircase and were a favorite selfie destination for many partygoers. Dinner by McCalls Catering & Events included peppercorn crusted smoked salmon salad, grilled filet of beef and wild prawns, capped off with a chocolate gianduja stenciled with musical notes for dessert.
Inside the Opera House, designer Stanlee Gatti draped the box seating with flowers recreating the green, pink and purple starburst that has become a logo for the centenary season. Among the political VIPS in attendance were Mayor London Breed and Lieutenant Governor Eleni Kounalakis.
Beyond the extravagance, the night’s proceeds go to the company’s funding artistic endeavors as well as education programs such as the San Francisco Opera Guild’s Voices for Social Change, Opera à la Carte, Opera Scouts and Madrigals, among other community efforts.
Calhoun estimated 900 people attended the formal dinner while another 360 attended the Bravo cocktail dinner party, where the Opera sold more of its top tier $10,000 tables than ever before. Although the total had not yet been finalized, Muduroglu believed the Ball raised nearly $3 million.
