    A cross-section of Colorado — young, old, men, women, and people of various racial and ethnic groups — participated in mid-January’s Celebrate Life March & Rally in Denver.

    “There were families pushing young kids in strollers and very elderly people who had a hard time walking,” Janet Hill of South Jeffco said, adding that she marched near a group of dancers in traditional Mexican garb. “It was a very diverse group. It makes you realize how these issues touch us all throughout our society.”

    Fourth- and fifth-graders at Rocky Mountain Academy of Evergreen gathered on Jan. 30 to eat a smorgasbord of cells.

    Even though the students understand that everything is made up of cells, this cell-a-bration’s cells consisted of fruits, vegetables and desserts.

    Each student was tasked with creating a plant or animal cell made out of food, labeling the various parts and bringing it to school for everyone to eat. Cells were made out of carrots, watermelon, Jell-O, tomatoes, kiwi, cookies, brownies and more.

    EVERGREEN — Evergreen’s girls basketball team has already accomplished something this season that last year’s Class 4A state championship squad didn’t do.

    The Cougars officially wrapped up the 4A Jeffco League title Feb. 13 with a victory over Valor Christian. It’s actually the first conference title for the program since the 2002-03 season.

    By Dennis Pleuss

    EVERGREEN — The Class 4A Jeffco League boys basketball title is heading back to Golden after the Demons, No. 3 seed, won the conference title outright Thursday with a 58-48 road victory against No. 8-seeded Evergreen.

    But through it all, the team never gave into the losing, and it paid off. Conifer (12-11, 8-2) can call itself conference champions after beating Alameda 65-49 on Feb. 14, capping a turnaround that will continue in the Class 4A state tournament.

  • ‘A plea for equal justice’

    As a conservative columnist, I have always tried to focus on constitutionally based concepts of personal responsibility and accountability supported by the belief that our country is founded on the principle of equality of opportunity.
    My numerous columns always attempt to support these views with appropriate facts and historical connections thereby providing a somewhat logical and rational basis for the opinions. Given the very nature of Op/Ed columns, these positions welcome opposing views.
