  • When 13 adults are playing a land-based version of “Sharks and Minnows” on a Monday evening at Clement Park, it leads many passers-by to raise an eyebrow.

    But Camp Gladiator participants don’t seem to mind — and, to some degree, they actually encourage the curiosity.

    “I’ve had several people walk up and join us for a workout,” said Tyler Kennedy, Camp Gladiator’s primary trainer for the Littleton area. “People want to be outside, having fun.”

  • Memorial Day is cloudy and cool, with a bit of wind out of the north. People on the boardwalk along Main Street in Evergreen watch as a motorcycle tools by every few minutes. Sometimes the bike is accompanied by others; sometimes it’s alone; sometimes it’s playing music through a speaker; sometimes it’s moving to the tune of its own melodious engine.

  • Leave for work at 6 a.m. Turn onto the road. Drop down into a lower gear to get up the hill. Push the pedal down. Now the other one. Breathe in. Breathe out.

    The first mile takes more than five minutes. The 19 more to the office will be much the same.

    Thousands of Coloradans had this experience on their way to work June 22. But rather than sitting in traffic jams, they were biking to their jobs.

  • A Harris’s hawk flew above a packed house from one handler to another Sunday at the second annual Father’s Day Falcon Fest at the Audubon Nature Center at Chatfield State Park. Dads, moms and their kids watched in awe as five birds of prey were presented by the founder of HawkQuest, Kin Quitugua.

  • One man’s trash is another man’s treasure, or so the saying goes.

    Someone buys an item, only to sell it. The next person uses it, and, eventually, sells it again.

    Take Littleton resident Linda Coughlin, who was selling antiques during Ken Caryl’s community garage sale on Friday. Coughlin had a large feather Mandala dream-catcher prominently displayed on the garage siding, hoping to sell it to someone as it had been sold to her.

  • The rain and lightning held off long enough for more than 800 people to enjoy a Thursday night out at Clement Park listening to folk duo Moors & McCumber. The pair played as part of the Foothills Park & Recreation District’s Summer Entertainment Series.

  • Dakota Ridge graduate Mekayla May, the school’s IB valedictorian, sits on a bench outside the building, wearing a dark blue shirt emblazoned with the name of her future college, Emory University, which has granted her a full-ride scholarship. 

    Mekayla is looking forward to a bright future. But she’ll never forget the dimmer days in her past.

    The spring day dawned warm and clear, a perfect morning for plowing and planting at the Littleton Museum on Saturday.

  • Kygo’s “Stole the Show” echoed throughout Red Rocks Amphitheatre on Friday afternoon as Chatfield Senior High graduated nearly 450 seniors in its 30th commencement ceremony. As a group of seniors performed their class song one last time, the proverbial spotlight was on, as thousands of parents, family members, friends, teachers and classmates looked on from the stadium seats.

  • There were WACs, WAVES and WASPs. And then, there were the women Marines.

    During World War II, women served in and alongside the armed forces, including the Women’s Army Corps (WAC), the Navy’s Women Accepted for Volunteer Emergency Service (WAVES), and Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASPs).
