  • Ken-Caryl U13 squad enters uncharted territory

    Be it from hitting grounders to his infielders to launching fly balls to outfielders or keeping a keen eye on his pitchers, Scott Worman has a pretty good handle on his players.

  • Young actors take on 'The Magical Land of Oz'

    Dorothy, the Scarecrow and the Tin Woman are walking through the forest when they suddenly come upon the Cowardly Lion. With a great roar, he frightens them out of their wits.

    “See,” Dorothy tells the Cowardly Lion, “you’re so scary, you set off the security alarm!”

  • Pedals power the commute

    Leave for work at 6 a.m. Turn onto the road. Drop down into a lower gear to get up the hill. Push the pedal down. Now the other one. Breathe in. Breathe out.

    The first mile takes more than five minutes. The 19 more to the office will be much the same.

  • Column: Return lets me know what I’ve been missing

    Hi again. I’m back.

    Nine months ago, I didn’t envision a return to Evergreen Newspapers and Landmark Community Newspapers, Inc. Working in Boulder had given me a more regular work schedule, not as far of a drive from my Arvada home and a sense of being back in the operations of a daily newspaper.
