  • Racing at Bandimere a love-hate experience for Romeros

    MORRISON — When it comes to the Romero family, drag racing has always been a family affair.
    “I’ve been racing probably for about 30 years, and my dad raced before that,” Ted Romero, 47, said. “He’s the one that got me into it and I just kept going.”
    Just as he inherited his love for hot rod cars from his father, Ted passed it along to his son, 19-year-old Jeremy.

  • The shaping of a journalist, staff

    I woke up Saturday morning to the news of the passing of Jim Vance. Who you may ask? Let me explain.
    Vance, for as long as I can remember, was the news anchor for NBC4, the local affiliate in Washington, D.C. The 75-year-old started at WRC-TV in 1969, two years before I was born.

  • Perlmutter would’ve made a good governor

    The people of Colorado would’ve been well served had Ed Perlmutter become our 43rd governor in 2019.
    Perlmutter, who served eight years as a state senator from Jefferson County, and who is now serving his sixth two-year term from the 7th Congressional District, announced last week that he was dropping his bid to become Colorado’s next governor. He leaves a crowded, and likely to get larger, field of both Democrats and Republicans who would like to succeed Governor John Hickenlooper.

  • Important for journalists to tell all sides

    Journalism, specifically journalists themselves, have taken it on the chin frequently in the past year and rightfully so.
    Bet you didn’t expect me — a journalist for more than 27 years — to say that, did you? But it’s true. We need to be held accountable for our reporting day in and day out. That’s what the public expects and deserves.

    That being the case, Chatfield coach Bret McGatlin likes where his team stands with six weeks remaining until the 2017 season opener in Florida.

    Editor:
    Maybe Trump is the president. Maybe not. The investigation into Russian meddling in our electoral system might just enlighten us on that matter —meddling as in it’s too subtle for an ordinary person to know it’s happening until it’s all over.
