  • Father’s Day takes on a different meaning

    Father’s Day has come and gone, but for 41 years it has never been the same.
    You see, since March 13, 1976, Father’s Day has taken on a completely different meaning for yours truly.  That was the day, as a 4-year-old boy, I was told that my father was no longer among the living. Tommy Hicks had passed away.

  • Reach, row, throw, go

    As the weather warms, many hit the water for rafting, tubing and fun in the sun.

    But for first responders, the summertime means something a bit different — an increased likelihood for a swift water rescue. To prepare, staff at West Metro Fire Rescue, South Metro Fire Rescue, Denver Fire Department and Westminster Fire Department gathered at Clear Creek in early June for a swift water rescue training course.

    Who better to teach the skills and fundamentals of basketball than a former NBA player?

    Picture-perfect weather greeted participants of the fourth annual REVEL Rockies on Sunday morning. Half- and full-marathon runners raced downhill finishing at Bandemere Speedway.

  • Transparency of school board seems to be lacking

    It’s awfully easy to criticize your political adversaries. It’s much harder to criticize your political allies. And when it comes to policy issues that is eminently reasonable. But when it comes to process and your allies violate the same important public policy principles you’ve lambasted your opponents for employing, there is an obligation to be consistent.

  • Passion of Jeffco parents is shining through

    I can pinpoint the date like it was yesterday. In actuality, it was May 1. That was the day that e-mails started to sprinkle in to my inbox with comments, letters to the editors and columns.
