    LAKEWOOD — If baseball doppelgangers exist, look no further than the Dakota Ridge Eagles and Denver West Cougars.
    Rivals in the U.S. Specialty Sports Association (USSSA) 12-under Majors classification, both teams pride themselves being community-oriented programs – the Eagles represent the Dakota Ridge High School district; the Cougars are predominantly comprised of players from Evergreen and Conifer – whose coaches stress the fundamentals of the sport.

  • Time to come up with reasonable solution

    What if the debate over health insurance was about what we support instead of what we oppose? What if the discussion included all 535 members of Congress instead of just those who happen to belong to the party in power?
    As Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s ill-advised plan to ramrod overhaul of the Affordable Care Act through the Senate without allowing time to fully understand its ramifications failed last week, it is apparent the questions Congress is trying to answer are the wrong ones to ask.

    The incident occurred in the afternoon on a rock near the entrance of town heading west on Highway 8. It was not at nearby Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre, where it is illegal to climb on rocks.

  • Foothills eyeing community garden plots

    In the midst of a continued period of growth, Morrison town officials are working on a plan to preserve the character of their town.

  • Inter-Canyon pushing for new volunteers

    For fire departments such as Inter-Canyon Fire Protection District, volunteers are everything.

    And in light of this, Inter-Canyon will be kicking off a push for more on Monday. Volunteer applications open that day and will stay open for a month.

    “Nationwide and in Jefferson County, as well as at Inter-Canyon, volunteerism (in the fire service) is on the decline,” said Dan Hatlestad, spokesman with Inter-Canyon.
