  • Field 3 at Columbine Knolls Park to be renamed

    Eleven months ago, beloved Jeffco baseball coach and tournament director Michael Fray passed away at age 60 due to complications from diabetes. Now, after months of lobbying and appealing to the Foothills Park and Recreation District, he’ll have a baseball field named after him.

    In a meeting last month, the district voted unanimously, 5-0, to rename Field 3 at Columbine Knolls Park “Mike Fray Field,” located at Kendall Boulevard and Elmhurst Avenue in Littleton.

  • For NHRA star, racing at Bandimere is a unique experience

    MORRISON — Even though the Mopar Mile-High Nationals NHRA race is the most difficult on the 24-race tour every year, national Pro Stock star Jeg Coughlin Jr. always looks forward to racing and reuniting with old friends at Bandimere Speedway.
    “This is probably one of my favorite races on the tour,” Coughlin said. “I get guilty of saying that, though, from race to race, but this is a great event.”

  • Racing at Bandimere a love-hate experience for Romeros

    MORRISON — When it comes to the Romero family, drag racing has always been a family affair.
    “I’ve been racing probably for about 30 years, and my dad raced before that,” Ted Romero, 47, said. “He’s the one that got me into it and I just kept going.”
    Just as he inherited his love for hot rod cars from his father, Ted passed it along to his son, 19-year-old Jeremy.

  • The shaping of a journalist, staff

    I woke up Saturday morning to the news of the passing of Jim Vance. Who you may ask? Let me explain.
    Vance, for as long as I can remember, was the news anchor for NBC4, the local affiliate in Washington, D.C. The 75-year-old started at WRC-TV in 1969, two years before I was born. He was one of the first African-Americans to sit in the news anchor chair. No, he doesn’t have a nationally recognizable name like Walter Cronkite, Dan Rather or Peter Jennings, but he was a staple in Washington, D.C., television news.

  • Rebels show some muscles, resilency

    Still a relative baby, the Hog Olympics, hosted by Columbine for the fourth time on Friday, have grown enough to require a tweak in the scoring system.
    With 18 schools fielding 23 teams, event coordinator Ray Barron replaced pool play, with the top two teams squaring off for all the marbles in the final event, in favor of a cross country scoring system for the strength competition spectacle for high school offensive and defensive linemen.

  • Perlmutter would’ve made a good governor

    The people of Colorado would’ve been well served had Ed Perlmutter become our 43rd governor in 2019.
    Perlmutter, who served eight years as a state senator from Jefferson County, and who is now serving his sixth two-year term from the 7th Congressional District, announced last week that he was dropping his bid to become Colorado’s next governor. He leaves a crowded, and likely to get larger, field of both Democrats and Republicans who would like to succeed Governor John Hickenlooper.

  • Important for journalists to tell all sides

    Journalism, specifically journalists themselves, have taken it on the chin frequently in the past year and rightfully so.
    Bet you didn’t expect me — a journalist for more than 27 years — to say that, did you? But it’s true. We need to be held accountable for our reporting day in and day out. That’s what the public expects and deserves.
