  • Chatfield locks up handful of state times vs. Gators; Rebels fall

    Elite swimmers can make bagging state qualifying times look as easy as a paddle through the kiddie pool. It’s a feat most aspire to, but even elite swimmers have to claim their first before they can move forward.
    That is exactly what Chatfield junior Travis Roundy did March 16.

  • Long ball spoils Dakota Ridge’s home opener

    There wasn’t much that relief pitcher Nick Silva could see that was wrong with his pitch, other than it was a little higher than he would’ve liked. However,that proved to be just enough.

  • Kerr to committee witness: ‘Lady, shut it’

    State Rep. Jim Kerr defended in an interview Sunday his curt response to a prison nurse who interrupted him last week during a hearing about proposed changes to the state’s personnel system.

  • Panel: McCasky violated ethics standards

    Former Jefferson County commissioner Kevin McCasky violated Colorado law when he voted to approve $400,000 in county funds for the economic council to which he had applied and later accepted a high-paying job, a state ethics panel ruled Monday.

    The Colorado Ethics Commission made its ruling a little over a year after Colorado Ethics Watch filed a complaint against McCasky, alleging the former commissioner breached his fiduciary duty to the county by performing an official act in which he had a financial interest.
