  • Kopp, Gerou roll out wildfire legislation

    State Sen. Mike Kopp, R-Littleton, and state Rep. Cheri Gerou, R-Genesee, hope to pick up where Kopp and former state Rep. Rob Witwer left off in their 2008 work on wildfire legislation.

    The duo are teaming up to push a series of bills aimed at reducing the threat of catastrophic wildfire in areas where urbanization and wild lands meet.

  • Jeffco GOP hit with subpoena in connection with alleged wiretapping

    The Jefferson County GOP was hit with a subpoena last week in connection with its one-time website administrator, who is a defendant in a federal wiretapping civil lawsuit.

    Robert Cook, who owns the Jeffco GOP's website and was hired to do computer work for the party, is one of four defendants in a civil lawsuit brought by longtime county critic Mike Zinna.

  • Young guns help Chatfield pin down Columbine

    It didn’t matter that Erik Gaytan and Clay Davenport were new to the Chatfield varsity rivalry with Columbine, neither needed an extra reason to win.

    Gaytan, a freshman, and Davenport, a sophomore who moved in from South Carolina, notched pins in the last two matches Jan. 22 to ensure Chatfield’s 45-33 victory over the host Rebels.

    “You know you have to win, it’s Columbine. … I know everybody there,” Gaytan said. “You got to beat them.”

  • Chatfield girls remain perfect in Jeffco

    When the 2008-09 girls basketball season, Chatfield looked like a team uncomfortable in its own skin.

    Dropping six of its first seven games, Chatfield had a bumpy start transitioning to new coach Mike Deutsch’s up-tempo scheme.

    After a bit of work, the road is much smoother now for the Chargers.

    And, while the Dakota Ridge team the Chargers faced Jan. 23 isn’t as powerful as ones of the recent past, the team’s 48-43 win over the rival Eagles was significant for a number of reasons.

  • Kerr, Kopp propose legislation on Littleton sewer rates

    Jeffco lawmakers are proposing legislation that would force the city of Littleton to set sewer treatment rates paid by tens of thousands of South Jeffco homeowners based on actual usage costs.

    Littleton says its rates are fair and necessary, but a group of water and sanitation districts that rely on the Littleton/Englewood Wastewater Treatment Plant for sewer service say they don't have a voice in how rates are set.

  • Jeffco sheriff looking for potential kidnapper

    The Jefferson County Sheriff's Office is asking for help in tracking down a man who tried to force a South Jeffco woman into his truck Jan. 3 after possibly sexually assaulting her.

  • Chargers fall to Rams in OT

    LAKEWOOD — Chatfield boys basketball coach Steve Schimpeler found his missing team Jan. 21. A positive result, however, continued to hide.

    Days after going AWOL and being upset by the defensive Arvada West Wildcats, the Chargers showed up in time to face Class 5A Jefferson County League leader Green Mountain.

    The Chargers had plenty of grit and moxie for four quarters, only for the Rams to knock them out in overtime for a 67-63 defeat.

    “We have character. We just don’t have enough firepower,” Schimpeler said.

  • Chargers wear down Rebels

    The final score will read: Chatfield 80, Columbine 63, but in actuality, the boys basketball game between the two rival schools was much closer.

    The underdog Rebels played inspired basketball Jan. 14 at Chatfield Senior High School, and the first quarter, in particular, was a thing of beauty – something their coach, Jeff Wennberg, hopes becomes the norm as the team enters the meat of the Class 5A Jefferson County League schedule.
