  • 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.

  • Lady Chargers slide by in foul-filled encounter

    It may have been Chatfield and Columbine, but that was about the only thing that was familiar with the fifth-place game of the Rebel with a Cause girls basketball tournament on Dec. 6.

  • West Metro Fire set to approve reductions in 2015 budget

    The West Metro Fire Protection District board was set to approve a 2015 budget at a meeting Tuesday that includes shutting down a fire engine in the Ken-Caryl area and reducing the number of on-duty firefighters.

    The cuts are part of a budget-balancing effort after voters rejected a 3-mill property-tax increase last May that would have raised taxes on a $300,000 home by $72 annually. The cuts represent about $2 million in savings in the 2015 budget.
