  • Brits show the way on spending

    Last week, a coalition government in the United Kingdom made its long-anticipated announcement about $128 billion in government spending cuts. It’s aggressive and audacious — and certainly more ambitious than anything being done on this side of the pond.

  • Mild fall brings out winged, four-legged creatures

    This has been a beautiful fall so far, with warm sunny days and blue skies.

    I am now getting physical therapy on my wrist and have enjoyed the warm, gold days as much as possible.

    I get outdoors for a bit most days to enjoy the fall weather while I can. Locally, some of the aspen are still green but other ones are in full color. From what I have seen on the TV news, many of the leaves have already been blown off in the high country.

  • Surprising state run a short stay

  • Evergreen takes third at league meet

    LITTLETON — Twelve teams from all over Jefferson County, including Chatfield, Columbine and Evergreen High Schools, showed off their best gymnasts at the league championship on Oct. 23 at Chatfield High School.

  • Evergreen boys, girls teams win regional

    LITTLETON — They say good things come in small packages and in the case of Conifer sophomore Gabriel Valenzuela that saying couldn’t be more accurate. Valenzuela, who is tiny but powerful, earned first place at the 4A Region 1 girls cross country championship on Oct. 22 at Clement Park.

    The 5k course, which led runners all over Clement Park, was brutal for some and downright punishing for others. Valenzuela, meanwhile, just took it in stride.

  • Cougars prep for playoffs with upset

    The Evergreen Cougars decided to save their best for last. They played their best game in their final home game of the regular season, beating the 2010 Jefferson County 4A league champion Green Mountain Rams, 25-21, 19-25, 25-19, 25-21 on Oct. 21.

    The Cougars’ win ruined what was a perfect season in the league for the Rams (17-2, 9-1), who looked overmatched most of the game, only narrowly taking Game 2 and trailing throughout the rest of the games.
