    The Tiara Rado Golf Course, home of the 2013 5A state girls golf championship, did its job. It played tough and hard with a lot of roll to it.
    But the Grand Junction course also played fair. That’s all Dakota Ridge’s Sydney Merchant and Gillian Vance could ask for as the Lady Eagles’ duo peaked at the right time, each finishing in the top 10 on May 21 at the conclusion of the two-day tournament.

  • Saye gives it his all

    LAKEWOOD — It was supposed to be offseason training, a getaway from the Colorado winter. Littleton’s Tucker Saye was rounding the track on his 2013 Staman’s Motorsports Suzuki 450, chasing down the second-place rider as part of the five-race Texas Winter Series. It was the last moto of the day, and he was off to a good start.

  • 4 arrested as deputies thwart robbery at South Jeffco coin store

    Four people were arrested early Thursday when Jeffco deputies thwarted a robbery at a South Jeffco coin store.

    A silent alarm at World of Coins, 7735 W. Long Drive, was triggered about 1:30 a.m. Thursday, according to the Jeffco Sheriff’s Office. When deputies arrived, they saw that the store’s front glass door had been smashed and that a silver Subaru was parked out front.

  • Littleton council decides not to charge admission at museum

    Admission fees won’t be charged at the Littleton Museum anytime soon, though the City Council still wants to continue looking for ways to raise money to support the facility.

    The council decided not to impose admission fees at the museum after hearing six fee-structure options it had requested in January. Museum director Tim Nimz suggested options that would raise anywhere from $7,500 to $157,000 yearly but warned the fees likely would reduce attendance.

  • Law requiring reporting of elderly abuse signed in Jeffco

    Colorado has made it a crime to not report suspected abuse of elderly people, and the law took effect with a signing ceremony in Jefferson County. 

    Senate Bill 111, which was signed by Gov. John Hickenlooper on May 16 at the Seniors’ Resource Center in Wheat Ridge, makes it a crime if those in professions such as home health care, law enforcement and nursing do not report suspected physical abuse of people 70 and older within 24 hours. 

  • Staunton is a stunner

    Staunton State Park’s much-anticipated opening weekend didn’t disappoint.

    “It’s been crazy getting ready for this, but seeing people happy has made all of the blood, sweat and tears worth it,” said Jennifer Anderson, the park manager. “I couldn’t have asked for the weekend to be better.”

  • Littleton City Council interviews four law firms

    After hearing proposals from four law firms, members of the Littleton City Council believe they may have found a solution to filling the vacant city attorney position. 

    The council has been trying to decide how it would replace former city attorney Kirsten Crawford, who resigned in February. In a review of the city's legal services, one suggestion was to outsource the work to a legal firm instead of hiring a full-time city attorney. 

  • Uneasy riders

    Any one of the Harley-Davidson or BMW motorcycles lined up at the Jeffco sheriff’s firing range was a bike lover’s dream. 

    And a bad guy’s nightmare. 

    The Sheriff’s Office hosted an advanced police motorcycle school for more than 50 officers from 11 area law enforcement agencies, including Jeffco deputies, on May 14-15. The 40-hour course gave the officers a rare chance to improve on their skills and to practice live-fire exercises while on their bikes. 

  • Tallying the 2013 legislative scorecard

    The Colorado legislature adjourned May 8 after completing the work of the first session of the 69th General Assembly. Highly contentious issues and partisan wrangling characterized the session. Democrats controlled the House, the Senate and the governor’s office after a two-year period in which control of the legislature was split, as Republicans controlled the House in 2011 and 2012 by a narrow 33-32 margin.
