  • Rezoning request for Coal Mine Ave. Brewing company approved

    A local couple received this week the green light to move forward with their plans to open a dog-friendly craft brewery in south Jeffco.

  • Burglaries, vehicle crimes down compared to ’16

    Burglaries, motor vehicle thefts and vehicle trespasses all took a dip in the first quarter of 2017 compared to the same time last year, according to the Jeffco Sheriff’s Office’s Law Enforcement Authority quarterly report.
