  • Jaguars’ season-ending loss follows familiar script

    By Kevin Carmody

    FALCON — In 32 minutes, coach Dan Zinn saw an entire 25-game season play out before his eyes.
    His D’Evelyn basketball team fell behind after a 9-0 Falcon run early in the second quarter, spent the rest of the game playing catch-up.
    But they couldn’t get clutch shots or stops late in a 75-67 loss in a Sweet 16 playoff game on Feb. 28 at Falcon High School.
    “This game was kind of our season,” said Zinn, the Jaguars’ third-year coach. “We seemed to get in trouble early, but we’d fight our way back. We just couldn’t fight all the way back this time.”

    A new device obtained by West Metro Fire Rescue aims to assist first responders in giving CPR to patients.

    Called the Lucas device, the portable machine has been around since 2003 and is used to treat sudden cardiac arrest patients. It acts as a second pair of hands and can administer chest compressions on its own. This saves time and energy for paramedics and EMTs, allowing them to focus on other life-saving procedures during medical calls.

    Now called the Old Town Historic Overlay District, the plan — if approved — would create rules and regulations that future businesses must adhere by in order to open in downtown Morrison. While current businesses would be grandfathered in, the rules would apply should they wish to make changes in the future.
