You, too, could be the subject of a Kenny Be cartoon! His May 3 Worst-Case Scenario, "Greenprint Your Office in Six Easy Steps," follows Greenprint Denver director Beth Conover as she introduces such useful -- and fictitious -- creations as the combo office chair/composting toilet.

But now economics has trickled down to Kenny's heroine, and she's planning to leave her post as the head of Denver's "high-profile sustainability program" so that she can spend more time with her kids -- really! Conover still plans to work with Greenprint Denver, though; in particular, she wants to make sure next year's Democratic National Convention is the greenest ever.

And in the meantime, the hunt is on for a new director. Want to go for the green? The job -- which pays $70,000-$85,000 -- is listed here.. -- Patricia Calhoun

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
