  • School board to vote tonight on whether to search for new superintendent

    The Jeffco school board will decide Jan. 12 whether to begin a search for a replacement for Superintendent Dan McMinimee.

    The announcement comes after two executive sessions — held Dec. 8 and 15 — in which school board members discussed the superintendent’s contract and received legal advice related to it. While the board has until March 31 to make a decision, a statement released Tuesday said “the board felt it was prudent to start the discussion early.”

  • Dinegar, Jaguars pull away from Lobos

    DENVER — Just 3 minutes into the game and Charles Dinegar was already having himself a game. The D’Evelyn junior had scored the team’s first nine points and was creating a defensive mismatch for the Conifer Lobos on Dec. 16. That’s when Conifer employed a 1-3-1 zone intended to slow Dinegar down.

  • Evergreen dominant at Jeffco mini-meet

    LITTLETON — Though the 200 individual medley is one of Tyler McMonigle’s favorite races, it’s also a difficult one to transition out of each stroke. That’s because the Evergreen High junior has to cope with scoliosis, a condition she’s had since birth.

    The first 50 yards of the individual medley — the butterfly — can be difficult, she said.

  • Lady Lobos pick up their first win

    ARVADA — There were plenty of reasons to be pessimistic. Showing up to the game late. Opening up in a 2-0 hole after a technical was called for wearing the wrong-colored jerseys. Falling behind 8-2 early on. 

    It was far from the kind of start the Conifer Lady Lobos would’ve preferred.

    But head coach Cara Walderman wasn’t too concerned with any of that. If anything, she was taking the blame for it.

  • Winter solstice heralds the coming of spring

    (Reprinted from Dec. 28, 2009)

    Looking out the window, I still see snow on the ground, and we will have snow for at least three more months. However, this past Monday, Dec. 20, was the changing point, and yesterday was the beginning of the change, the winter solstice, or the first day of winter.

    That’s the day my husband, Bill, used to call the best day of the year because it meant that from that day forward every day became a bit longer, and this meant spring was on its way. The best time of the year.
