  • 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 last week at the age of 64, was one of those people.

  • Differentiating between crows, ravens a matter of sight, sound

    This past week has brought us more spring-like weather with temperatures in the high 50s and the melting of what little snow we had left. Once more, my feeders are deserted by the juncos, which obviously prefer seeds that they can find in the fields to what I offer them at the feeders. They do eat the white proso millet when the fields are covered with snow.

  • Divers Mills, Lewis pave the way

    ARVADA — Bailey Mills and Katrin Lewis may be only 10th-graders, but they’re already making a name for themselves on the diving platform for the Evergreen Lady Cougars. They did so again Jan. 18 at the Jeffco Invitational, placing second and third respectively in the 1-meter diving competition at George J. Meyers Pool.
    Mills finished with 386.35 points, and Lewis scored 377.7. They were tops among 4A competitors in the meet. Chatfield’s Averly Hobbs won going away with 452.4 points.

    Every time Joseph Brody walks onto the mat, he’s at a disadvantage. That’s not too difficult, considering the Evergreen freshman weighs all of 95 pounds soaking wet and is wrestling 106-pounders.

  • Former board members voice concern about open governance

    Several former Jeffco school board members attended last Thursday’s meeting and signed up for public comment, including Jon DeStefano, Judy Pierce, Dave Thomas, Debby Oberbeck, Sue Marinelli and Rick Rush.

    Former board member and president Dave DiGiacomo spoke for all the former members. DiGiacomo served on the board from 1991 to 1999.

    “We care deeply for the students, teachers, staff and administrators of this district,” DiGiacomo said. “We have become concerned with the actions of our newly elected school board members.”

  • School district plans ‘classroom dashboard’ for data

    Jeffco Public Schools announced plans to move forward with equipping teachers with a “classroom dashboard” to access student data at last Thursday’s school board meeting.

    To the relief of many Jeffco parents, the plans didn’t include the words “inBloom” or “cloud.”

    Since 2012, the school district has been planning a classroom dashboard for teachers, who use numerous systems and access large amounts of student data daily.
