  • Breidenbach’s quick win ignites Columbine

    LAKEWOOD — Karl Breidenbach is looking for a few good 5A wrestlers.
    Columbine’s senior 160-pounder is unbeaten and ranked No. 2 in the state’s top classification by On the Mat, though not perfect for the season, losing to Valley’s Brandon Gonzales (a defending 3A champion) and Pueblo County’s Keenan Willits (ranked No. 1 in 4A).

  • A financial meltdown: Inter-Canyon Fire board missed chances to prevent alleged theft

    By Ann Imse, For the Courier

    The Inter-Canyon Fire Protection District board failed to investigate serious overspending for five years, records show — and that allowed $643,000 to vanish before the fire chief was indicted on embezzlement charges.

    The board did not discover the alleged theft until there was no money left in the bank, in December 2012.

  • Avalanche alumni, youth groups come together

    When Ken Klee retired from the National Hockey League after the 2008-09 season, there was talk of forming a Colorado Avalanche Alumni Association, but it never really came to fruition. Still, hockey remained part of the 42-year-old’s life as a coach with the Foothills Hockey Association.

  • Rebels end slide against Chargers

    It took until the second quarter, but the Columbine Lady Rebels found Kate Gelston. The Chatfield Senior 3-point shooter was lighting it up from beyond the arc until Columbine went with a box-and-one defense to rein her in. Once the Lady Rebels did that, Chatfield’s offense was held in check, and Columbine’s offense came into its own.

  • Remembering Clarence, a Capitol fixture

    There are people we encounter in life who achieve notoriety and influence beyond what any reasonable person would expect. Clarence Miller, who passed away recently at the age of 64, was one of those people.

  • Chargers rally, stave off Rebels

    Riley Welch has been dreaming about playing in a game like this since he was in seventh grade. Maybe it could’ve been a little less heart-thumping for the Chatfield sophomore, but the end result was still satisfying nevertheless.
    Welch came off the bench to score all of his team-high 13 points in the fourth quarter, and Chatfield held off two late-second chances from Columbine to escape with a 55-54 victory on Jan. 22 at Chatfield Senior High School.

    A Jeffco sheriff's deputy, Sgt. David Baldwin, died on Sunday morning when his patrol motorcycle collided head-on with an SUV on Colorado 93 north of West 64th Parkway.

    The accident occurred just after 10 a.m. when a southbound 2004 Saturn Vue reportedly crossed into the oncoming lane while passing on a curve. Baldwin's Harley-Davidson, which was traveling in the left northbound lane, was struck by the SUV, according to a news release from the Sheriff's Office. Baldwin was thrown from the bike; he was pronounced dead at the scene.
