Rachel Simas has lived in Thornton for 30 years — despite the
foul-tasting water that can soil her clothes, gang activity and a
dearth of shopping opportunities.
But she enjoys her one-and-a -third acres, a vegetable garden
and the room for her dogs, cats and chickens. Perhaps most
importantly, her property has been paid off.
