Odds and Ends


Cookie Lockhart wears many hats. The Steamboat native is an auctioneer who dabbles in real estate and antiques.

Now Lockhart also can lay claim to several Best of the 'Boat titles. She was voted the city's friendliest person, a title she shares with Debbie Linthicum. She also placed second in the categories of best-dressed female, most eligible bachelorette and best storyteller. And her antique store was voted among the city's best second-hand stores.

No individual placed in more categories than Lockhart.

"Wow, that's really exciting. That's so cool," Lockhart said. "I guess I won the all around."

Lockhart said she didn't prefer one category to the other, though she did confess she thought she might do well in the best-dressed category, which went to Barbie Johnson.

"It would have been nice to win best dressed," she said. "I guess there were more younger voters."

Lockhart wouldn't say how old she is, though she did say "I just found a Steamboat Pilot from 1951 with a story about me placing second in a pony race."

So now that she's been identified as a well-dressed, friendly person with great storytelling abilities, how long does Lockhart think she can remain on the most eligible bachelorette list?

"Isn't everyone who's single looking?" Lockhart said. "If Mr. Right came along, sure I'm ready."
