Herrin sentencing reset to Jan. 3

By Vicky Gits

 Sentencing has been delayed until Jan. 3 for the man who pleaded guilty to charges of kidnapping an Evergreen woman and taking her to his house in Kittredge nearly one year ago. He had been cleaning her house for four years.
Herrin appeared briefly before Jefferson County District Judge Philip McNulty in court on Dec. 6. Herrin's new attorney, public defender Jeff Dougan, asked for a continuance because he needed more time to look at the case records and court transcripts. Herrin's private attorney Robert Bernhardt withdrew from the case on Nov. 8.

Bergen Valley kids perform native American dances

By Deb Hurley Brobst

Third-graders at Bergen Valley Elementary School recently danced Native American dances and ate at a potlatch — in part to create memories.
“This has been a tradition at Bergen Valley for years,” said third-grade teacher Cindy Cox, who coordinates the Native American program. “I have kids come back (years after leaving third grade) to say that they remember this program.”
Cox, who has been teaching at the school for 17 years, said she has kept the tradition going after the previous teacher in charge of the program retired.
