  • Restoring faith in body, mind and soul

    In a dimly lit room with soothing music playing in the background, three people stretch, lengthen and breathe, moving their bodies in ways they forgot they could.

    For one hour, the yogis ditch wheelchairs and prosthetics, slowly but surely restoring faith in their bodies with each pose. This is the beauty of adaptive yoga, according to instructor Ashley Curran, who leads the class at Southwest Plaza’s Yoga Joy studio.

    “The mind-body relationship is so powerful,” she said.

  • Top talent needed

    Now that we are in a period of nearly full employment, people have many job choices. The days of taking any job you can get and hanging on for dear life are over. Managers, executives and everyday employees can choose to join an organization or not. They expect that in addition to their paycheck, they have a right to expect good treatment in the forms of recognition for good work, a reasonable work schedule and respect from managers and others. Many will ask about the values of the organization as well as its goals.

  • ‘Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain’

    Last week we took a look at the circus as an appropriate analogy for the manipulation by the national media ringmasters of four rings of infotainment. Interestingly enough, there is also perhaps another similarity that merits inspection.

  • Area schools have strong showing at Jeffco track meet

    LAKEWOOD — It seems as though local track teams are peaking at just the right time.

    With the state track meet just around the corner, D’Evelyn, Chatfield, Columbine and Dakota Ridge all showed their strengths at the Jeffco League meet this weekend at Jeffco Stadium.

  • Falcons prevail against Clear Creek

    LITTLETON — The chances came in waves for the Clear Creek girls soccer team.

    Down 1-0 in the second half, the Golddiggers battled the weather as well as Front Range Christian, but neither deterred them as the clock ticked.

    The Falcons survived every challenge — including rain and lightning. Backed by two goals from junior Cami Chisholm, Front Range Christian continued its strong finish to the season with a 2-0 win on May 2.

  • Chatfield girls fight valiantly, lose to No. 6 Cherokee Trail

    AURORA — As the No. 27 seed of the 5A state playoffs, the Chatfield girls soccer team was supposed to be the underdog against No. 6 Cherokee Trail.

    But on Tuesday night at Legacy Stadium, the Chargers left it all out on the field.

    After a contentious first half, in which the score was tied 1-1, the Chargers outplayed the Cougars and forced overtime.

    Cue the drama.

    Less than five minutes into the 15-minute overtime, the ref called a deflected pass-back a negative pass back into the box: Cougar indirect free kick.

  • Jeffco Sheriff's Office dedicating unit to family crimes

    The Jeffco Sheriff’s Office, in addition to increased response from its victim advocates, has established a Family Crimes Unit.

    Sheriff Jeff Shrader presented the first-quarter 2018 Law Enforcement Authority report at the Board of County Commissioners’ May 1 hearing, stating that the unit became fully functional in January. It has four investigators and a sergeant dedicated to handling crimes involving domestic violence, child abuse, sexual assault by a family member or acquaintance, human trafficking and elder abuse.

  • The daily circus

    Sometimes the apparent absurdities of our national politics simply defy explanation. In an attempt to impart some sanity, it appears to me that the best analogy may well be that of a circus.
    Traditionally, our most popular circuses have featured compelling ringmasters directing the audience’s attention to the ever-changing entertainment in one of three rings. Today we have the national media as self-serving ringmasters directing the public’s attention to what they deem as the story of the moment, the issue or issues that best serve their anti-Trump agenda.
