    GOLDEN — At first glance, it looked like it might be a rough day at Applewood Golf Course on April 13.

    All the Jeffco League girls golf teams descended on the par 71 course for the third conference tournament of the season. With the greens having just been aerated, putting would be a challenge with more sand than grass visible on most greens.

  • 'Legally Blonde' features laughs, songs at Clear Creek High

    Elle Woods has come to Clear Creek High School.

    Elle — portrayed by senior Emily Gerding — will star in “Legally Blonde the Musical” at 7 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday. The musical follows the plot of the 2001 movie, only with random outbursts of song, as Rachel Smith, the show’s director, put it.

    Smith, a CCHS English teacher, said Gerding is “channeling her inner Elle. She has put in a lot of work to make (Elle) a fun, likable character.”

  • Two lifesaving acronyms: CPR, AED

    A half century ago in rural Pennsylvania, a woman named Clem spent her mornings immersed in the pungent smell of chlorine and the ornery noise of youngsters wakened too early.

    Part drill instructor and part den mother, Clem preached water safety with the fervor of a country minister, and over the years she taught thousands of young charges how to swim. For the older students, the ones earning their lifeguard certification, this also meant a course in cardiopulmonary resuscitation.

    In January, Doug Parce, a volunteer captain with Inter-Canyon Fire, was going through security at JFK International Airport in New York on a business trip to Europe when another passenger told a TSA agent that somebody wasn’t well.

    Parce saw the man, who was sitting on a bench where passengers put their shoes back on.
