  • After season, Rebel wrestlers look to regionals

    LITTLETON — Ted Mullin was the perfect younger brother last season when, as a junior for Columbine, he agreed to wrestle up a weight so senior sibling Tim could compete in the 182-pound weight classification.

    Ironically, the younger Mullin fared better. Ted qualified for his first 5A state tournament at 195, while Tim couldn’t duplicate that feat as a state qualifier.

  • Finding the meaningful middle ground

    The first time I remember believing that a political event provided an absolute truth was after Richard Nixon resigned the presidency in 1974. Through all that Watergate taught us, the overriding simple truth to me was that sometimes the story about the story is more important than the story itself, and that people finding themselves in a scandal would be best served if they acknowledge their failures rather than extending the scandal by dragging out its final determinations and ramifications.

    LITTLETON — In a game that had everything one would expect from rival schools, the Chatfield Chargers outlasted the Columbine Rebels 63-56 on Jan. 24 in front of a packed house.

    Chatfield seniors Liam Mann, Keland Rumsey and Isaiah Reed were fundamental to the team’s success.

    “Back-to-back rivalry games with the wins, it feels great and obviously we needed it by the way we started league. We’re just hoping to continue that further down the road,” Rumsey said.

    By Levi Waddell

    LITTLETON — From the initial tipoff, it was obvious that Columbine junior Maura Singer was going to have a big night against the Chatfield Chargers.

    Singer’s 16 first-quarter points helped the Rebels obtain a sizable lead, and they never looked back, winning the contest 58-31 on Jan. 24.

  • Jaguar girls pull together for big Green Mountain win

    The D’Evelyn girls basketball team took a while to come together this season — literally.

    The Jaguars didn’t have their full complement of players in the fall, but now that they do, things seem to be jelling. If the Jan. 24 53-40 win over Green Mountain is an indication, D’Evelyn is hitting its stride just as the 2017-18 season is heating up.

    Earlier this week, Jefferson County joined the rest of the metro area in conducting a yearly point-in-time survey of homelessness across the county.

    The survey, a nationwide initiative, helps communities understand trends and respond to the needs of people experiencing homelessness. The information also is provided to the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development. In Jeffco, the effort began at sundown Monday and continued until after sundown the following day.

    A jury trial has been scheduled for Jordan Lemarinel, a suspect in the 2017 murder of a Littleton man.
