  • Chatfield diver scaling new heights

    To dive on the highest level in college, Chatfield’s John Fox must go where most would choose not to.

    Nah, he’s not joining the starship Enterprise or anything like that.

    But, he is scaling heights, up to the tune of 10 meters.

    It’s all in an effort to land a spot on a Division I swimming and diving team.

  • Swings of emotion

    Columbine volleyball players ran the gamut of emotions in a 48-hour stretch.

    First up were the non-desired emotions of anger and frustration after taking one on the chin in a four-game home loss to Lakewood on Sept. 30 that could potentially keep the Rebels from a three-peat as Class 5A Jefferson County League champions.

  • Falcons fall in five-game thriller

    Front Range Christian appeared to have things well in hand.

    Up two games to none in its Class 2A Mile High League home match against Alexander Dawson, the Falcons were certainly soaring. Alexander Dawson, though, found the reserve to rally and when the final whistle sounded, it was the Mustangs that emerged victorious with a dramatic five-game win 14-25, 22-25, 25-19, 25-18, 15-12 on Oct. 3 at Front Range Christian High School.

  • Chargers wary of moral victories

    LAKEWOOD — Despite what the 48-28 score might suggest, Chatfield gave Pomona all it could handle deep into the fourth quarter Oct. 2.

    Just don’t expect the Chargers to feel good about it.

  • A new home for Jeffco's homeless pets

    When it comes to replacing Jeffco’s aging and crowded animal shelter, County Commissioner Kevin McCasky has set an ambitious goal: Groundbreaking for the new $9 million facility will take place by Nov. 1.

    "How's that for an optimistic schedule?" McCasky asked the assembled crowd Oct. 1 at the northwest corner of the Jefferson County Fairgrounds, where the 30,000-square-foot shelter will be built. The Table Mountain Animal Center — the name of the current shelter and of the new one — serves Jefferson County and its municipalities.

  • Johnny Mac's hopes to hit it big at the movies

    A movie about John and Myrlene McLean would have the restaurant business as a backdrop. And their latest venture does indeed have a place in the movies — or at least next to the movies.

    The South Jeffco couple opened Johnny Mac’s on Sept. 24 in a space just off the lobby of Elvis Cinemas at West Bowles Avenue and South Kipling Street. The diner-style eatery, which can hold about 30 people, is adorned with movie posters, the biggest from Robert Redford's 1992 hit "A River Runs Through It."

  • Hacker steals personal data of 12,230 Foothills customers

    The credit card numbers and other personal information of nearly 12,230 people were stolen in a recent breach of the Foothills Park & Recreation District website.

    The district announced the breach Oct. 1, saying it is working with the Jeffco Sheriff's Office to investigate the theft.

  • Clean sweep for Eagles at Dave Sanders Memorial Invitational

    Evan Appel wasn’t sure if he was going to run on Sept. 26 or not.

    The defending Class 5A cross-country state champion and senior at Dakota Ridge High School hadn’t been feeling all that great recently, and shutting things down for the afternoon would’ve been an easy thing to do.

    But, after taking part in the pre-race warmup, Appel decided to go ahead and go through with the race.

  • 2008 Emily's Parade a wunderbar event

    A German film crew joined more than 2,000 motorcycle riders on Saturday for the third annual Emily’s Parade from Columbine High School to Bailey.

    ZDF Television travels annually from Germany to America to cover human-interest stories. During their travels throughout the U.S., the crew had planned a stop at Columbine High this week to explore ways school officials and family members have continued the healing process through outreach programs.

  • New faces guide Columbine past Arvada West

    ARVADA — Phillip Romero is one of those players that, because of his athleticism, needs to be out on the football field as much as possible.

    Good thing for Columbine that Romero has no qualms about playing multiple positions.
