Passing the buck: Cervi Ranch has provided generations of gyrating beasts for the Evergreen Rodeo

By Emile Hallez

Sparse patches of brush and dry grass dot the nearly featureless horizon of Sterling, where a hint of the Old West remains untainted from decades of development and technological progression. It may not seem like the ideal place to find a modern, world-class athlete, but rodeo man Binion Cervi would disagree.

Jeffco teachers union at an impasse with district over pay

By AJ Vicens

The union representing Jeffco Public Schools' teachers has voted to declare an impasse in negotiations with the district over pay increases.

"The major sticking point in the negotiations is the fact that while our workload has continued to increase, the district is not willing to add a cost-of-living adjustment to the salary schedule," JCEA president Kerrie Dallman said in a May 19 interview. "They prefer instead to give a one-time stipend."

LARASA helping Latinos apply for food stamps in Jeffco

By AJ Vicens

A Denver-based Latino advocacy organization is helping Latino residents apply for food stamps in Jefferson County, and the county says the project has been a huge help.

The Latin American Research and Service Agency recently was awarded a federal grant to help low-income Latino households apply for food stamps in Jefferson, Adams, Arapahoe, Boulder and Denver counties.

The nonprofit group initially planned to use the money to encourage more Latinos to apply for benefits but after meeting with county officials, it became clear the mission had to change.
