  • Protesters rally against Rooney Valley rezoning

    Some dressed in full-on dinosaur costumes, others wore dinosaur hats, and many carried signs proclaiming, “No car dealerships, no rezoning” — all to protest a rezoning application that would have allowed auto dealerships, hotels and retail on the northwest corner of C-470 and Alameda Parkway near Dinosaur Ridge.

  • Network offers help, sense of community for homeless

    On one of the first official nights of winter, the frosty breath of a dozen people filled the air outside the Charles Whitlock Recreation Center in Lakewood.

    Former Jeffco district attorney Scott Storey was arrested early Saturday on suspicion of driving under the influence.

  • Barrows, Lady Rebels escape with win

    Ellie Barrows made the most of her opportunity, and the Columbine Lady Rebels benefited from it.

    Playing without stalwarts Annabelle Young and Skylar Alward, Columbine had to look for others to step up and lead the way. Barrows only scored seven points Friday night at Chatfield Senior High, but her final two — on a layup with 51 seconds remaining — was enough for Columbine to sweep the season series with a nail-biting 55-52 win over a valiant Chatfield squad.

    Behind 13 points from freshman Emily Doolittle and 12 from sophomore Sydney Daniels, Dakota Ridge led from start to finish in rolling to a 54-38 victory over the Lady Tigers at Dakota Ridge High School. But it was the team’s defense, specifically a full-court pressing trap, that befuddled Grand Junction for much of the night.

  • Chargers perfect in Jeffco, again

    On the one hand, as Chatfield senior Titus Reed put it, the Chargers’ 74-39 victory over Columbine on Friday night was a “good milestone,” and it was. 

    Chatfield not only completed its second straight 5A Jeffco League championship, but it also won its 30th straight conference game. The team celebrated by cutting down one of the nets at Chatfield Senior High afterwards.
