  • Depth is a concern for Clear...

    The tears literally flowed from Jeff Miller when the Clear Creek cross country coach learned that Katie Sullivan was relocating to Summit. It wasn’t just because she was expected to be the Lady Golddiggers’ third best returning runner, but because she is a great kid in general.

    But Sullivan isn’t back and neither is Grace Diekman, a 2014 graduate who was the team’s No. 3 runner in 2013, leaving some uncertainty in Clear Creek’s pecking order with the cross country season around the corner.

    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.

    There are no champions, but everyone is a winner in the Red Rocks Century cycling event.

    The 307 riders who participated in four rides in the foothills west of Morrison ranging from 33 to 100 miles on Aug. 9 were rewarded with spectacular scenery and challenging climbs.

    The real winners were Hope Communities and Can Do Multiple Sclerosis, the event’s two primary beneficiaries.

  • Column: Radio announcer Johnson...

    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.
