  • Sheriff's Office questions credibility of report on body in cave

    After two extensive searches for a body that a man reported seeing in a cave near Red Rocks Amphitheatre last week, the Jeffco Sheriff’s Office is questioning the credibility of the report, sheriff’s spokesperson Jacki Kelley said Tuesday.

    “Our witness has been very uncooperative and untruthful about some of the things he shared,” Kelley said.

  • Tighe upsets incumbent Odom in county commission race

    Democratic challenger Casey Tighe upset incumbent Republican John Odom by 738 votes in their race for a seat on the county commission, a contest so close the results weren’t finalized until two weeks after Election Day.

    Tighe becomes only the second Democrat in more than a decade to join the three-member commission, in a stunning win for a political newcomer in a county that has traditionally leaned Republican.

    “I'm happy with the outcome,” Tighe said. “I guess I can say I'm pleased with the way it turned out.”

  • Rebels’ lacrosse talent jumping to next level

  • Getting back to normal

      LAKEWOOD — It’s Thursday night and Taylor Hunt repetitiously swims back and forth in Lane 5 at the Carmody Recreation Center. That in itself isn’t all that surprising. The Columbine High School senior started swimming when she was 6.

    It also shouldn’t be too shocking considering the 17-year-old practices nine times a week, including three morning sessions from 5-6:30 a.m. for the Foothills Swim Club and will be adding two to three practices with Columbine High this winter.

    The police are waiting until the investigation is complete before deciding if charges will be filed.

  • Dedication to school, community

     It’s my fortunate opportunity to introduce Dakota Ridge High School senior Jake Iannella. People who know Jake quickly come to appreciate his cheerful disposition, integrity, leadership qualities, and willingness to learn. Jake has been an outstanding student body leader, including key roles in Leadership Council and on the football and track and field teams. When I speak to my children about my hopes and dreams for whom I would like them to become, I easily picture the accomplishments and actions of Jake.
