  • Tebow a role model? You bet

    In 1983, the Baltimore Colts selected John Elway with the first pick in that year’s NFL draft. Elway had no interest in playing for the Colts, and said he would play professional baseball if they took him. So the Colts traded Elway to the Broncos for two players and a first-round pick in the 1984 draft. The rest is history.

    Since then, Broncos drafts have been pretty ordinary. No big headlines, no huge stories. 

    Until this year.

  • Fixture at EHS retires in a Flash

    Lee Mayranen came by his nickname, “Flash,” pretty easily.

    Mayranen, the facility manager at Evergreen High School, was dubbed Flash by a teacher years ago because of how quickly he walks around the building and how he takes care of things, well, in a flash.

    He’s retiring from Jeffco Public Schools in June. He spent 34 years with the district, 17 of them at EHS. Flash was honored May 13 for his years of service to the school at the seniors’ end-of-the-year assembly. He was named an honorary member of the 2010 graduating class.
