Welcome back

*Deer Trail senior Tae'lor Purdy continues to impress. Purdy, a 2008 first-team all-state selection, leads the state in scoring, regardless of classification, at 26.6 points a game. She also is averaging 17.2 rebounds, 6.6 steals and 5.6 assists. Her signature effort, so far, came against Woodlin before the break. Purdy scorched the Mustangs for 34 points, 20 rebounds and six assists. Her sister Bay'lee, a freshman, added 25 points in the same game, an 88-20 victory.

*Not to be outdone, Caliche's Dara Kipp is averaging 24 points and six rebounds. Her season-best was 34 points against Merino, and Kipp also is hitting 81 percent from the free-throw line for the Buffaloes.

*We continue to shake our heads at the numbers being posted by Machebeuf hockey player Zack Lass. Lass is pulling away from all challengers in the state scoring race with 22 goals and 15 assists in only eight games. He has tallied at least three goals five times, and that includes two four-goal games and one in which he scored six against Pueblo County. Consider that the state leader last season had "only" 23 goals for the entire season.

*The number of head football coach openings continues to grow. Add Evergreen and University to the list, as those schools will need to replace Mike Sellers and Had Soto, respectively. That follows openings that were announced at Regis Jesuit and Thornton before the holiday break.

During the two-week break, Durango's Kyle Davis stepped down. Davis had been under suspicion of child abuse, according to the Durango Herald.

"With everything going on in my life, I thought I had better concentrate on some other things," Davis told the Herald. "When it got down to it, after several talks with (Durango athletic director) Sheldon (Keresey), I just felt it was going to take a lot to put this team back together."

The Demons finished 0-10 last season, Davis' second season. They went 3-7 in 2007

*Erie has a new baseball coach in Harold Simmons, who takes over for Bob Bote, who recently resigned. Simmons, who led the program at Windsor the past two seasons, inherits a program that finished state runner-up in 2007 and advanced to the final four last season. Previously, Simmons was an assistant at Longmont and Mountain View.

"I'm really excited to get things going," Simmons told the Longmont Times-Call. "We don't have much time before it all starts, but it's exciting."

*The Sports Authority High School Development Program, a six-week boys basketball program for freshmen through seniors, begins Monday at the Gold Crown Field House in Lakewoood. Cost is $95. Information: goldcrownfoundation.com.

*The boys and girls basketball schedule this week features some quality offerings. Let us know which games you are most interested in seeing.

    Another Christmas break for high schools and a smorgasbord of sports tournaments, a stretch without pencils, books or teachers' dirty looks for uninterrupted competition -- and fun.

    Not in Colorado, of course.

    California's Central Valley had the Holiday Invitational and Polly Wilhelmsen basketball tournaments, with dozens of teams getting ready for league seasons. Gilroy hosts the Mid-Cal Classic, a de facto preview of the state wrestling championships with 50-odd teams. Other events, big and small, dotted the state while some schools headed to Las Vegas and Reno for basketball and wrestling orgies.

    But in Colorado? Kids played one-on-one in the driveway, did pushups in the basement and searched for an open gym. Wouldn't be a surprise if some coaches opened the doors, just in case their players wanted to (wink, wink) drop by to shoot a few or a bit of five-on-five pickup.

    None of that is bad. But actual games? Nah. No wonder Colorado basketball teams never manage to play a full season of 30 or 35 games. A required break for ... uh, what is it again that kids get out of not playing for two weeks?

    get my boyfriend back writes:

    Relationships and dishonest are a curious mixture, with some couples able to transfer on quite effectively after the devastation of an affair. Typically, though, the one who was dishonest on can’t recover from it. To stay in the relationship when there’s no belief there, and she or he fears that the opposite will cheat at any time, generally is a miserable factor to do.
