  • Gymnastics preview: Columbine, Chatfield

     

  • Speedy Davis found his niche

     Front Range Christian senior halfback Kyle Davis is a hybrid athlete, like a Prius — quiet, quick and more than capable of being effective.

    Unlike other running backs who flaunt their talent like a tricked-out Hummer, like Bo Jackson, Emmitt Smith and Walter Payton, Davis controls the field in a way that makes the defensive line wonder if that was the wind that just blew or if their man had just run by.

  • Senior uses tragedy to better self

       Some might say that life has been unfair to Trace Pozek. The Dakota Ridge senior lost his father, Benjamin, to heart disease at the age of 62 on the first day of school last year. The unexpected death shook his foundation, but not his will.

  • Coachable Gaytan focused on 2011

    If you ask Chatfield High Schools senior free safety Erik Gaytan what makes him a good athlete, he’ll tell you simply, “I’m coachable.”

    For Gaytan, being coachable means not only doing what he’s told, but remembering that, while he may be good, there are better. 

  • Injury, playoff loss push Croy

    All Josh Croy could do was watch. The 6-foot-4, 210-pound defensive lineman couldn’t contribute in the way he wanted to as the Columbine Rebels, winners of their first eight games in 2010, were on their way to a 14-7 second-round 5A state playoff loss to Grandview.

    His first full season on the varsity squad had been cut short midway through thanks to a high ankle sprain to his left ankle. But the Rebels senior is using that misfortune as a motivator for 2011.

  • Front Range Christian golfers place third at Applewood

    GOLDEN — Jared Sloan shot a team-best 84 and Front Range Christian placed third among seven schools at a 3A golf match on Aug. 18 at Applewood Golf Course.

    Resurrection Christian's Mason Munn was the top medalist after shooting a 77. He helped his team to a first-place finish with 254 points. Strasburg was second with 275 and Front Range Christian was third, two shots back.

    Other finishers for the Falcons were Paul Turner (92), Zach Garcia (101), Brax Rohde (114) and Ben Anderson (124).

  • Boulder ballot misses the point

    On Nov. 1, 2011, municipalities across Colorado will conduct elections. Voters in those cities and towns will be picking mayors and members of their city councils. They will decide on tax questions and other issues concerning how their cities will operate.
    And then there is Boulder.

  • DUI sign goes AWOL in South Jeffco

    A thief made off with an unlikely prize this week in South Jeffco — a massive DUI warning sign the Colorado Department of Transportation had placed on a trailer.
    The rolling billboard was likely stolen between 9:30 p.m. Aug. 18 and 8:15 a.m. the following morning, the Jeffco Sheriff’s Office said. The trailer and sign were placed near the intersection of West Chatfield Avenue and South Garrison Street.

  • Jeffco library board votes to block porn on computers

    Pornography will soon be blocked on all computers at Jeffco libraries, the board of trustees decided Aug. 18, following weeks of outcry over the availability of such content on public computers.
    Though the filtering system will eventually be designed to block only images deemed pornographic on adult-accessed computers, websites could be filtered in their entirety on all library computers in the more immediate future.
