  • Rebels align for another state title run

    LITTLETON — Brittany Wilson is back on the high school soccer field.

    As one of the top young goalkeepers — not only in the state of Colorado, but nationally — she will compete at the high school level this spring. After two seasons playing for Chatfield, Wilson trained with her Real Colorado club boys team last spring instead of playing for the Chargers.

  • Just the beginning

    BOULDER — A spontaneous final team meeting for Chatfield’s 2015-16 boys basketball team was held at center court in a nearly empty Coors Events Center on March 11.

    With midnight approaching, the clock had already run out for the Chargers (24-3 record) after a 72-50 Class 5A state semifinal loss to now two-time defending state champion Overland.

  • State champs end Chargers’ tourney run

    BOULDER — It took the defending state champions, along with one of the top recruits in the nation, to end Chatfield’s boys basketball season.

    Overland ended the Chargers’ 15-game winning streak with a 72-50 victory in the Class 5A state semifinals March 11 at the Coors Events Center in Boulder. The Trailblazers’ 6-foot-10, 240-pound senior De’Ron Davis, who will play for Indiana University next season, powered Overland on both ends of the court against Chatfield.

  • Defending champs too much for Chatfield

    BOULDER — It wasn’t the ending Chatfield’s boys basketball team envisioned when it stepped onto the court at the Coors Events Center in Boulder last Friday night.

    The Chargers had aspirations of upsetting the defending Class 5A state champion Overland Trailblazers in the semifinals March 11, in turn, getting a shot to win Chatfield’s first boys hoops state title since 1992 the next day in the title game.

  • An important lesson on the road of life

    By John Newkirk 

    As a boy I used to pass time on the school bus by counting street signs bearing names of classmates or family friends: Norman Lane. Willa Way. Lemasters Drive. Julie Lane. Granzella Road. Herzman Drive. What a novelty, I thought, to live in a community where roads are named after residents who are still living.

  • Lot rezoned to accommodate two homes

     Jeffco's county commissioners unanimously agreed to allow a Littleton-area developer to rezone a 15-acre parcel to build two homes on the property.

    The land, near the intersection of South Deer Creek Canyon Road and South Murphy Gulch Road, was previously zoned Agricultural-2, which allowed only one house on every 10 acres. The March 1 vote rezoned the lot to Agricultural-1, which will allow one house for every 5 acres.

  • COUNTY BRIEFS

    Jeffco, Comcast continue talks

    Jeffco officials and Comcast have not yet agreed on a change in the company’s fee structure for its use of county-managed right-of-way.

    The county commissioners told Comcast on Feb. 2 that unless the company signed a contract by month’s end to change the way it pays to do business in unincorporated Jeffco, the commission would consider revoking its use license.

  • DA seeks grant to boost prosecutions in sex assault cases

    Jeffco’s district attorney and his staff want to focus more resources on prosecuting felony sexual offenders, and have applied for state grant funding to help with that goal.

    Eva Wilson, who serves as DA Pete Weir’s senior chief deputy district attorney, told the county commissioners March 1 that she hopes a grant will help the office double the number of felony sexual assaults that it prosecutes.
