  • Jeffco searching for suspects in SW Plaza robbery

    The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office is searching for two suspects accused of stealing merchandise from Macy’s at Southwest Plaza Mall.
    Around 5:30 p.m. Nov 18, the two suspects — a male and female — reportedly stole lingerie, clothing and a fragrance set, according to Jenny Fulton, spokeswoman with the Jeffco Sheriff’s Office. These items are valued between $400 and $500.
    Several loss prevention employees tried to stop the two as they left the store, causing the suspects to drop some of the items on their way out.

  • D’Evelyn basketball hopes to stay strong this season

    For the past few years, D’Evelyn basketball has been a force to be reckoned with in the 4A Jeffco league, and the boys and girls both hope to carry that success into this upcoming season and perhaps improve upon their standings.

    Last season, the Jaguar girls made it to the Sweet 16 before falling to No. 2 Pueblo West, and that was a step back for them. The two years before, they made it to the Great 8.

    With the team comprised of mostly seniors and juniors, the Jaguars are hoping to return to Great-ness, or maybe even a little better.

  • It’s the new normal

    Whether as kids we lived in a close-knit community like Evergreen or a big city elsewhere, the Cold War scared us. That was our normal. Now, a quarter-century after that war wound down, we live with a new war. New threats. A new normal. The Halloween slaughter by an Islamic terrorist on a Manhattan bike path made us conscious of it yet again. No matter where we live.

  • Chatfield dominates in first round of playoffs

    LAKEWOOD — Chatfield’s hurry-up, quick-strike offense doubles the pressure on opposing defenses.

    That combination doesn’t do the Charger defense any favors, either. Often, the Chargers barely have time to catch their breath before returning to the field after a quick score by the offense. And they tend to play in the shadow of their offensive brethren.

  • Chatfield bows out early at state

    DENVER — After a long, hard-fought season, the Chatfield volleyball team ended its run at the state tournament at the Denver Coliseum on Saturday afternoon after losing in the round robin-style first round.

    “I think we did really great,” senior middle blocker Lacey Cowan said. “I have zero regrets because I think we put it all out in the court today. I think that we should all be happy with how we played.”

  • D’Evelyn ends historic run at state tournament

    DENVER — Although the D’Evelyn volleyball team couldn’t earn a win at the state tournament, the Jaguars still made history on their road to state this year.

  • Get ready for a wild ride, Colorado

    Just 52 weeks from now, we’ll decide who’ll succeed John Hickenlooper as Colorado’s governor. All indications are we’re in for a wild ride.
       At the end of October, 26 active candidates were listed as gubernatorial candidates on the Secretary of State’s website. And shortly after a poll suggested former Congressman Tom Tancredo would run best among Republican candidates, he jumped into the race as well.
