  • Season opener leaves FRCS wanting more

    DENVER ­— Maybe it was the yardage — the back nine played 200 yards longer than the front, or the trees that hover around the Wellshire Golf Club course, or just fatigue. Whatever the case, the boys golf regular-season opener on Aug. 11 left Front Range Christian golfers clamoring for more.
    Led by Jared Sloan’s 88, the Falcons placed sixth out of eight teams on the Par-71, 6,498-yard course. Sloan’s score — he shot 5-over 40 on the front nine before firing a 48 over the last nine holes — left him in 10th place.

  • Planning commission approves changes to South Jeffco blueprint

    The county planning commission unanimously approved a revision to the South Jefferson County Community Plan on Aug. 10, altering the existing plan to encourage more mixed commercial and residential development.

    The most significant difference in the new plan is the addition of “neighborhood centers,” mixed-use parcels that could one day be home to small developments similar to Belmar. If redeveloped, the areas would function as small communities in which residents would live, shop and potentially work in the same general locales.
