  • Dakota Ridge wrestling program pinned due to lack of numbers

    The Dakota Ridge High School wrestling program has been suspended for the 2010-11 season due to a lack of participants, head coach Larry May said.

    Athletic director Matt Heckel made the decision to forego the wrestling season on Nov. 19 after the program only signed up 11 wrestlers a week after practice had started. Jefferson County District rules mandate that a program have at least 14 wrestlers in order to have a paid coach. May is not a credentialed teacher in Jefferson County schools.

  • Reject public funding for private schools

    By Randy Brown

    Let’s start with the most obvious problem: the math.
    Meet Mr. Smith, who has four children that he is sending to the private school of his choice. With public funding of private schools, his children will cost the taxpayers an estimated $4,000 for schooling per year. The actual numbers will be negotiated and argued about for years by proponents of school choice, but the concept will not change.

  • State’s budget writers in bind

    2011 will be one tough year for legislative budget writers in Colorado. To begin, they will face one of the toughest budget years in our state’s history. Add to that the fact that split control of the legislature means the Joint Budget Committee will be made up of three Republicans and three Democrats. And if that’s not enough of a challenge, the six members of the JBC will have three cumulative years of experience on the budget panel.

  • Smartco closing Colorado stores

    Smartco Foods, a bargain grocery chain that opened five stores in Colorado this year, is closing its Colorado outlets after only three and a half months.

    The five stores in the Denver area, including one in Littleton, employ about 100 people.

The decision was made following months of disappointing sales, a news release from the company stated.
