    DENVER — Motivation matters in a sport’s offseason, as golfers Lenny Urbas of Evergreen and Scott Robb of Littleton can attest.

    Neither player was satisfied with his 2013 high school season and both put in the time and effort to improve for 2014. Based on the opening 4A Jeffco tournament on Aug. 13 at Foothills Golf Course, it was a fait accompli.

    Rangers are stepping up enforcement against recreational shooters on Denver Mountain Parks land near Squaw Pass Road.

    Nearby residents have complained that the Denver Mountain Parks conservation area has become more attractive to shooters in recent months. In response, Clear Creek sheriff’s deputies contacted the Denver Mountain Parks system for help, since they don’t typically enforce rules on city of Denver land.

    Before coming to Colorado in 2004, Mark Johnson had never worked anywhere, even while in college, for more than four years. Then he and his family moved to Evergreen, and Johnson became the sports director for KOA 850-AM and the voice of the Colorado Buffaloes.

    “Once we got here, we weren’t going anywhere. We love the area,” the 47-year-old said.

    Mike Pucherelli has a goal. The second-year Evergreen Lady Cougars softball head coach wants to build up the numbers in the program for both the varsity and the junior varsity. That would include a better relationship with the West Jeffco youth program. With 28 players out for the 2014 season, he’s headed in the right direction.
