    After a three-year hiatus, construction could begin this year on another portion of the hard-surface NEAT trail in the Bergen Parkway area, made possible by a grant from Great Outdoors Colorado and Colorado State Trails.

    With the Panthers coming into the game as a 12th-seeded team and with a losing record in the Western Slope League, it would have been very easy for the Cougars to overlook them with an eye toward a potential match-up with the Thomas Jefferson Spartans on Feb. 28.

    It would have been easy to do, but that’s not what the No. 5 Cougars did.

    It was 8 degrees above freezing when I went out this morning, and Our Evergreen World was shimmering with hoarfrost. Every, twig, stem and pine needle was encrusted with diamonds. Our entire landscape shimmered like Tiffany’s window. Backlit by the rising sun, each tree and shrub was a scintillating piece of jewelry.

  • In Colorado, tomorrow’s history today

    Over the years, I’ve written columns in February about historical African-American figures with Colorado connections in observation of Black History Month. The stories I told were about people who had lived and died before I was born.
