  • Social media in today’s news coverage

    I wasn’t at Legacy Stadium on Saturday afternoon, but with every precious second I could feel the electricity of what was happening in Aurora.
    Maybe it was the former sports editor in me coming out, but as I sat in the comfort of my home Saturday afternoon, I kept an eye on Twitter to see what was happening in the 5A state football semifinals between Columbine and Eaglecrest. The winner will be heading to Sports Authority Field at Mile High next weekend to play for a state title.

  • Democratic electorate more female-driven

    While roughly the same number men and women registered as Republicans and unaffiliated voters participated in the election earlier this month, women made up roughly 60 percent of Democrats who voted.

    Dutch Creek honors veterans
    Editor:
    I attended the most incredible Veterans Day Recognition assembly at Dutch Creek Elementary this morning. The students honored the veterans by singing from their hearts, handing each veteran a handcrafted thank you card and playing a patriotic march on their instruments.  
    Every student was engaged in the process and exhibited exemplary behavior. Each veteran stated his/her name, branch of the service and connection to Dutch Creek. All were met with applause.

  • It’s the new normal

    Whether as kids we lived in a close-knit community like Evergreen or a big city elsewhere, the Cold War scared us. That was our normal. Now, a quarter-century after that war wound down, we live with a new war. New threats. A new normal. The Halloween slaughter by an Islamic terrorist on a Manhattan bike path made us conscious of it yet again. No matter where we live.

  • Get ready for a wild ride, Colorado

    Just 52 weeks from now, we’ll decide who’ll succeed John Hickenlooper as Colorado’s governor. All indications are we’re in for a wild ride.
       At the end of October, 26 active candidates were listed as gubernatorial candidates on the Secretary of State’s website. And shortly after a poll suggested former Congressman Tom Tancredo would run best among Republican candidates, he jumped into the race as well.
