    I wasn’t at Legacy Stadium on Saturday afternoon, but with every precious second I could feel the electricity of what was happening in Aurora.
    Maybe it was the former sports editor in me coming out, but as I sat in the comfort of my home Saturday afternoon, I kept an eye on Twitter to see what was happening in the 5A state football semifinals between Columbine and Eaglecrest. The winner will be heading to Sports Authority Field at Mile High next weekend to play for a state title.

  • Following title, Charger boys hoops facing inexperience

    By Levi Waddell

    With deep playoff runs occurring in their past two seasons, the Chatfield Chargers boys’ basketball team has high expectations to make another run.

    “We just kind of take it one day at a time, one game at a time,” head coach Steve Schimpeler said. “I just expect us to do the best we can. That’s really the only expectation that I have and we’ll see how far that gets us.”

  • Rebel boys hoping to improve on the court this season

    By Levi Waddell

    After a disappointing first-round loss in the playoffs last season, the Columbine Rebels and head coach Clay Thielking are looking to improve headed into the 2017-18 season. With a bevy of young, inexperienced talent, the Rebels will rely heavily upon sophomore Luke O’Brien, who was second on the team in scoring last season at 11.0 points per game.

  • Eagles hope for successful season

    With the 2017-18 basketball season just around the corner, a lot of uncertainty surrounds both the boys and girls programs at Dakota Ridge High School.

    Jeffco undoubtedly will be one of the toughest leagues in the Denver metro area, so everything’s up in the air right now about where the Eagles will stand come conference play and beyond.

    Still, expectations are running high among the girls.

  • Democratic electorate more female-driven

    While roughly the same number men and women registered as Republicans and unaffiliated voters participated in the election earlier this month, women made up roughly 60 percent of Democrats who voted.
    While it’s not immediately obvious why this distinction occurred or how it might have influenced the election, if it continues into next year’s mid-term election cycle, it could play an important role in determining Colorado’s next governor, other statewide elected officials and control of the legislature.

  • Giant indoor sandbox opens in south Jeffco

    There is a new sandbox in town, and chances are, it’s much larger than any you have seen before.

    Kids Dig, an interactive play area featuring more than 40 tons of sand, opened last weekend in Littleton, just north of Southwest Plaza. The business is the first of its kind in Colorado, and owner Garry Wolff is excited to bring something fresh to an area he once called home.

  • Askins arraignment continued again

    The arraignment for the man accused of lighting Roman candles that started the North Turkey Creek Fire on March 22 has been continued for the fourth time.

    Andrew Askins, 18, was charged in late April with two Class 4 felonies of second-degree arson in connection with lighting fireworks while Jefferson County was in a stage-2 fire ban.

    He appeared before the court Monday afternoon for an arraignment but asked for a continuance. At an arraignment, the rights of the defendant are formally read and a plea is entered. Askins will return to court at 1 p.m. Jan. 16.
