  • 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.

  • Climbers rescued off rocks in Ken-Caryl Valley

    A group of teenagers got into a sticky situation Wednesday evening after climbing on rock formations in the Ken-Caryl Valley.
    West Metro Fire Rescue was called to North Ranch Road and Killdeer Lane in South Jeffco just before 7 p.m. Two climbers were stuck 60 feet up and another was stranded at around 40 feet. A fourth teen was able to get down on their own.
    “There’s algae on the sandstone formations,” said Ronda Scholting, spokeswoman with West Metro Fire Rescue. “When it gets even a little bit wet, it gets way slick.”

    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.
