    The parcels, referred to as the Ensor properties, are at the southwest corner of West Mineral Avenue and South Santa Fe Drive. While the land was zoned by the city in the early 1980s for planned development, it still is classified by the Arapahoe County assessor as dry farmland.

  • Eagles faced adversity all season, even at the state meet

    DENVER — Dakota Ridge senior co-ed cheer captain Tyler Richey is the embodiment of cheerleading — enthusiastic, positive and full of spirit all mixed into a compact, athletic, bouncy frame. 

    She wears an enormous smile, almost as big as the bow perched atop her high ponytail, whenever she speaks, but as soon as her team left the floor at the Denver Coliseum on Dec. 5 it seemed as though Richey’s perkiness was merely a façade covering deep-seated worry.

  • Holiday remembrances

    Scores of people participated in a “pinecone ceremony” and farolito lighting to mark the holiday season at The Fort restaurant in Morrison on Sunday under snowy skies.

    Visitors wrote a name or names on a piece of paper of loved ones they want to remember during the holidays and slipped the paper into a pinecone. The pinecones then were tossed into a campfire built in the central courtyard of the restaurant, the messages carried into the sky by the flames.
