  • Sheriff's Calls

    Morning has broken

  • The enemy within

    Recently my son and I watched the movie “The Darkest Hour” about Winston Churchill. We enjoyed it a great deal and, of course, came away with the realization that were it not for the leadership of Churchill World War II most likely would’ve had a different ending.

  • Where have all the adults gone?

    This is, indeed, a critical time for our country. Instances of incomprehensible violence are leveraged to produce an intended political agenda.
    Traumatized and grieving victims are given no time for healing. Rather, their very personal post-traumatic stress is sensationalized and publicized. Children are being used by adults to further an agenda, an agenda that is in direct conflict with the U.S. Second Amendment.

  • Commissioner Briefs: From the Jeffco Board of County Commissioners

    Final plat for Willow Springs
    During its Feb. 27 hearing, the Jeffco Board of County Commissioners approved a final plat for 18 houses in Morrison.
    While members of the public who commented said they weren’t opposed to the development, they were concerned about the lot’s single access point. They described the entrance/exit as being at the bottom of a steep hill where vehicles frequently exceed 40 mph, and the visibility is low.

  • Columbine High is the first Jeffco school to take on ‘Rent’

    Columbine High School officials promised Tracy Schwartz an opportunity to direct her dream show in honor of her end-of-the-year retirement.

    For Schwartz, the decision was a no brainer: “Rent.” The musical has been a dream for as long as the English and theater teacher can remember, and for 20 years, she has been playing its soundtrack for inspiration prior to every show she’s directed at Columbine.

  • Trail connecting Morrison with nearby parks in the works

    The Colorado Mountain Bike Association is working with the town of Morrison, Jefferson County Open Space and Denver Mountain Parks to find a way to connect commercial downtown Morrison to existing trails in Red Rocks and Matthews/Winters Park.

    The project is in the preliminary phase, and if approved, wouldn’t be complete for approximately two years. If approved, however, the multi-use trail would be built from the town of Morrison to Dinosaur Ridge and Red Rocks entrance two along Highway 93 with the potential to extend further to Matthews/Winters.

  • Feeding Many community garden, orchard all a go

    After weeks of back-and-forth discussion, the Feeding Many community garden and orchard project is officially a go. Foothills Park and Recreation District and Feeding Many reached a contract agreement last Thursday, and Kendallvue Elementary School has organized a groundbreaking ceremony to be held Friday afternoon.

  • Lemarinel trial heads toward a conclusion

    The interaction between Jordan Lemarinel and Samuel Addison Stewart in the moments before Stewart’s death took the front seat on Wednesday, the seventh day of the Lemarinel murder trial.

  • As long as there’s fabric

    On the first Saturday in March, colorful scraps of fabric and handmade quilts covered the tables and chairs in a room at Waterstone Community Church.

    But there is a method to the seemingly haphazard scattering of cloth, and it’s one that the Scraps to Treasure quilting group has been developing for more than a decade.
