    The Columbine High School graduate awoke last November in a hospital bed at the University of Texas, a machine controlling his breathing via a tube in his throat.

    The Marine, burly from a weight-training regimen, struggled to free himself upon regaining consciousness, an early show of hope that he might recover from the brain injury he sustained when he was run over by a speeding truck days before.

    He was a hero — or so people tell him.

  • Carol Janusz of Littleton is pleased to announce the marriage of her daughter, Elizabeth Michelle, to Richard M. Murray, son of David and Eva Murray of Valencia, Calif. The couple were married in a private ceremony in Studio City, Calif., on Dec. 29, 2010.

  • The Jefferson Symphony hosted its International Young Artists Competition on Jan. 8 at the Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities, which was a co-sponsor.

  • Members of Jeffco Schools IT services desk passed the hat for the Jefferson Foundation’s Homeless Services Fund.

It was very easy to write a check for the funds collected and get it to the foundation.”
