  • Clarinet cases and water bottles are scattered haphazardly in the outfield grass on Chatfield High School’s baseball field. More than 100 students, most wearing shorts, stand at attention, waiting for cues from the marching band’s drum majors.

    It’s a Saturday — homecoming day — and the band members have been rehearsing since 8 a.m. They get their first substantial break at 11:15. Fifteen minutes later, they’re back in formation.

  • For as long as there have been cars trusty enough to chug up the mountains, artists have ventured around the Lariat Loop hoping to capture that elusive sunset reflecting in Bear Creek or the first aspen turning to gold near Buffalo Bill’s grave.

    The Lariat Loop is a 40-mile scenic circle developed in the 1920s to help Coloradans experience the mountains in proximity to Denver. To celebrate the anniversary of the Loop’s designation as a National Scenic Byway, on Oct. 17 the Loop’s Heritage Alliance will host the Lariat Loop Art Bistro.

  • The Golf Club at Ravenna became the setting for “Havana Nights” as the annual Hats Off to Hope House event was held at the home of Bill and Jill Maul on Sept. 16. More than 170 guests attended, including Glenn Jacks, owner and developer of Ravenna, as well as John and Lorraine Bandimere (pictured) and Tehema owners Tony and Nancy Haley. More than $80,000 was raised to invest in teen moms who are dedicated to building stable lives for their little ones.

  •  

    Jackson was only a few weeks old when his guardian, Connie Rivera, noticed something peculiar about him.

    Just like other bulldog puppies, he would snort, chew and run amok — but Jackson would curiously flop over, winded, after only a few rambunctious minutes.

  •  

    Blasts of distorted electric-guitar chords compounded with a capricious flow of drums and cymbal crashes on Sept. 18 as the Summerset Festival audience absorbed the hard-rock performance of local student band Chapter 4. A teenage crowd edged up against the stage, transforming a small section of grass in Clement Park into a mosh pit, pushing and laughing as they bounced off of one another.

  •   Gary Rower waved to the Midwesterners far below as he piloted his red-and-white-striped World War II-era biplane across the country in his annual pilgrimage to the Jeffco airport.

    Visible in the open cockpit, the aviator, protected from the elements in antique-style cap and goggles, demonstrated an arsenal of aerobatic maneuvers at the Colorado Sport International Air Show on Aug. 29 and 30.

  •   Racers roll up to the Bandimere Speedway starting line, waiting with sweaty palms for the staging-tree lights to turn from yellow to green. Then they break from the start and travel 60 feet in about eight seconds. In wheelchairs.

    Bandimere for the first time hosted the Craig Hospital Motor Sports Day and Wheelchair Drag Races on Aug. 26, with all proceeds benefiting Craig’s Paralympic Sports Programs. Some 20 participants ages 10 to 72 competed not for prizes but for fun and thrills.
