  • Column: Look here, fall sports season is upon us

    Have you looked around a bit lately? No? Than take a peek. Go by the nearest high school or golf course. Chances are you’ll see a golfer, a football player or a runner cross your path. It is August after all.
    You know what that means? With school on the horizon — hard to believe, I know — high school athletics are here again, too.
    It seems as if the summer just flew by. In a lot of ways, it did. I blinked and seemingly missed it. And though it’s still a wee bit warm out there, for me at least, there’s no better time of the year.

  • Hobbs making a splash

    Chances are, if you know Averly Hobbs, that you’ll find the Chatfield Senior High junior somewhere near a pool. She’ll either be life guarding or, more likely, working on new dives.
    The repetitive work on those dives, along with her working out in the gym, is why she has become one of Colorado’s better divers.
    This past February, as a sophomore, Hobbs placed second in the 5A state high school diving championships with a 454.65 point total. Only Loveland senior Michal Bower scored higher with a 486.15 total.

  • Cencich leaves mark with bench press

    Thomas Cencich said he backed off a little bit. After all, the 52-year-old Littleton resident only had a deadlift of 429 pounds. He also took it easy with his squat of 446 pounds. Normally that’s where he would start, but he wanted to make the judges happy.
    “I’m going really easy, really light to get something on the board,” the 1978 Evergreen High School graduate said.
    Well, he was at Disney World after all. There were other things to do.

  • Staunton State Park packing them in

    Since its May 18 opening, Colorado’s newest state park has been packing in the crowds. 

    “The number of visitors was much higher than we expected,” said Jennifer Anderson, manager at Staunton State Park.

    From May 18-31, approximately 25,000 visitors experienced the 3,828-acre park southwest of Conifer. Anderson said more than 46,000 people entered the park in June.

  • Proposed land swap for Community Corrections move abandoned

    A proposed land swap that would have moved Jeffco’s Community Corrections services from the current location in Lakewood to a new home in unincorporated Jeffco has been abandoned.

    The deal would have involved swapping the Community Corrections headquarters at Kendall Street between 16th and 17th avenues, commonly referred to as the New York Building, and 4 acres at West Colfax Avenue and Wild Acres Road in unincorporated Jeffco next to Lakewood.
