    Opening Day, 2012!

  • Western red squirrels begin roaming forests in April

    March has been an interesting month with weather zig-zagging between record highs, record lows, exceptional spring-like weather along with exceptional drought with which came a serious forest fire near Conifer. All of this brought a great deal of uncertainty.

  • GETTING BACK ON THE MOUND

    Eric Castillo felt the pain. He saw the swelling on his left knee. But no matter what the pain wouldn’t go away. And, unfortunately, there was an all-too-real reasoning for that.
    The now-Clear Creek High School freshman was suffering from Ewing’s Sarcoma, a form of bone cancer that was hindering not only his knee but the tibia bone. The diagnosis came in January 2011 and all but threatened to end his baseball career, even before it truthfully got started.
