    LITTLETON — The home court advantage favored Chatfield’s volleyball team on Aug. 30 as the Chargers downed Evergreen, 3-1.
    Despite the loss, the Cougars kept their chins up and vowed to push forward.
    “I’m really proud of them,” Evergreen coach Gail Andrews said. “They never gave up, which I’m really proud of them for. There’s a lot of heart in this team.”

  • Conifer football upstages Woodland Park

    CONIFER — A year ago, Conifer’s football team epitomized the Babes in the Wood tale.
    With eight sophomore starters, the Lobos were sort of like children being led to slaughter, and it was reflected in a 3-7 record.
    They’re not all grown up yet. But after opening the 2018 season with a convincing 35-12 win over Woodland Park on Friday, the Lobos are alive and well — and convinced they’re poised to return Conifer football to its usual lofty status.

  • King-Murphy students finding answers during Genius Hour

    Shortly after the morning bell rang on Thursday, second-grade teacher Alicia Needham began telling her students about how she woke up last night to the smell of smoke.
    She explained that there were wildfires burning throughout Colorado, and she asked her students how she might find out information about them.
    The students suggested web browsers Google and Wonderopolis, digital assistants Alexa and Siri, and reaching out to knowledgeable people who are near where the fires are burning.

  • District map amendments deserve our vote

    One thing most people can agree on that it offends our sense of fair play when politicians try to stack the deck for their own benefit. One issue that generates especially negative reactions is gerrymandering.

  • The welfare generation

    Stoked by the national media, the incessant drumbeat of impeach, impeach, impeach has drowned out other topics, most of which are more cogent to the lives of the average American.

  • End Overdose Jeffco allows community to discuss opioid addiction

    Addiction came quickly for Lemuel Lee.

    After being kicked out of his house at 11 years old, Lee started living on the streets, using and selling drugs. His addiction persisted, and for years, Lee worked his way in and out of the judicial system and ruined a lot of relationships.

    “I want what I want when I want it,” Lee said. “With that mind frame, it didn’t matter who or what or why I hurt them. I burned every bridge in my life between me and my family and also between me and who I thought were my friends.”

  • ‘Everything that a hungry, tired hiker could want’

    As the white Dodge van rattles its way along Wellington Lake Road, Lyn Kulenburg’s cell phone rings.

    She doesn’t like to talk while driving, so she pulls to the side of the dirt road. Kulenburg knows there are only a few reasons her husband, Bill, would call her while she is en route to the Rolling Creek trailhead. The most likely? There are more hikers. Just as she expected, that’s it.

  • Evergreen boys golf wins Jeffco league tournament

    ARVADA — Evergreen golf has been rolling this season, and Friday’s Jeffco meet at the Indian Tree Golf Club was no different.

    With an overall score of 317, the Cougars placed first in the 4A competition, led by senior Nolan Miller and junior Clayton Whitton, who both shot a 78 on a par-70 course and tied for third in 4A.

    The course conditions, Whitton said, weren’t the best, and that contributed to a few of the Cougars’ struggles.
