  • State legislature facing tumultuous 2018 session

  • New program at Jeffco Jail benefits Foothills Animal Shelter

    Dogs at the Foothills Animal Shelter now have new beds to lie in thanks to a new program for inmates at the Jefferson County Jail.
    The program, which began in September, teaches inmates to sew by refurbishing old bedding materials into dog beds.

  • Galan-Browne is an EHS standout in sports, academics, leadership

  • New Year’s Day Polar Plunge a tradition for out-of-towners

    All of the 250-some people who climbed out of Evergreen Lake on Monday afternoon had the same expression on their faces — that of unbelievable, mind-numbing cold.

    “Never again,” one woman said between the teeth chattering, as a loved one threw a towel over her.

    But that won’t be the case for Denver’s Sawyer family, who has done the annual Evergreen Lake Plunge every year since it started in 2008, and in Boulder before that.
