  • Depth is a concern for Clear Creek girls, boys in 2014

    The tears literally flowed from Jeff Miller when the Clear Creek cross country coach learned that Katie Sullivan was relocating to Summit. It wasn’t just because she was expected to be the Lady Golddiggers’ third best returning runner, but because she is a great kid in general.

    But Sullivan isn’t back and neither is Grace Diekman, a 2014 graduate who was the team’s No. 3 runner in 2013, leaving some uncertainty in Clear Creek’s pecking order with the cross country season around the corner.

  • Cougars’ Urbas finds redemption

    By Craig Harper
    For the Courier

    DENVER — Motivation matters in a sport’s offseason, as golfers Lenny Urbas of Evergreen and Scott Robb of Littleton can attest.

    Neither player was satisfied with his 2013 high school season and both put in the time and effort to improve for 2014. Based on the opening 4A Jeffco tournament on Aug. 13 at Foothills Golf Course, it was a fait accompli.

  • Denver Mountain Parks stepping up enforcement of no-shooting rule

    Rangers are stepping up enforcement against recreational shooters on Denver Mountain Parks land near Squaw Pass Road.

    Nearby residents have complained that the Denver Mountain Parks conservation area has become more attractive to shooters in recent months. In response, Clear Creek sheriff’s deputies contacted the Denver Mountain Parks system for help, since they don’t typically enforce rules on city of Denver land.

  • The media: part of today’s great divide

    Editor’s note: This column is the fourth installment in a five-part series that looks at the divisiveness in the U.S. Congress and offers possible solutions.

    The conventional wisdom, especially among Republicans, is that the news operations at the major networks favor the Democrats. It’s subtle, they say, but the stories they cover and the questions they ask show their left leaning. You might remember that Katie Couric ambushed Sarah Palin asking a trick question: “What publications do your read?”

  • Latvian artist exults in colors of the Southwest

    Artist Larisa Aukon spent her childhood years staring at the gray winter skies of Latvia. Fifteen years ago, when Aukon landed in Arizona, she found herself inspired by the explosion of color in the American Southwest. Today, Aukon’s monotone childhood memories are a far cry from the color- and light-imbued canvases she produces. At Mirada Fine Art Gallery in Indian Hills, Aukon’s first solo exhibition in Colorado, “color of LIFE,” reflects on the vibrant life she has built in her adopted home.
