    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.

  • 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.

    There are no champions, but everyone is a winner in the Red Rocks Century cycling event.

    The 307 riders who participated in four rides in the foothills west of Morrison ranging from 33 to 100 miles on Aug. 9 were rewarded with spectacular scenery and challenging climbs.

    The real winners were Hope Communities and Can Do Multiple Sclerosis, the event’s two primary beneficiaries.

  • Column: Radio announcer Johnson embraces Evergreen, Buffs

    Before coming to Colorado in 2004, Mark Johnson had never worked anywhere, even while in college, for more than four years. Then he and his family moved to Evergreen, and Johnson became the sports director for KOA 850-AM and the voice of the Colorado Buffaloes.

    “Once we got here, we weren’t going anywhere. We love the area,” the 47-year-old said.

  • Increased numbers give Evergreen options

    Mike Pucherelli has a goal. The second-year Evergreen Lady Cougars softball head coach wants to build up the numbers in the program for both the varsity and the junior varsity. That would include a better relationship with the West Jeffco youth program. With 28 players out for the 2014 season, he’s headed in the right direction.
