  • On May 27, Shaffer and Mortensen elementaries joined thousands of chain links to celebrate a year devoted to Rachel’s Challenge.

  • It’s a Friday afternoon at B’nai Chaim, and Rabbi Joel Schwartzman is running between the building’s two floors, trying to reconcile temperatures between the freezing ground level and the balmy basement.

    In about two hours, 200 congregants would pack the small Reform Judaism synagogue for a night of musical devotion, a treat Schwartzman and his wife, Ziva, provided a few weeks before his July 2 retirement.

  • Editor’s note: The Courier has been following Ashley Bissel in her fight against a rare form of brain cancer. This is the final installment in the series.

     

    Ashley Bissel wears a simple charm bracelet, a chain of loose silver links adorned with a single a accoutrement, a small ribbon of the same metal.

    She grasps the tiny charm between her thumb and forefinger, absorbing its smooth texture and savoring the significance.

    Every May 15, she plans to add another.

  • Prom was different this year for Chatfield High School junior Hally Burns.

    Dressed to the nines and meticulously groomed, Hally arrived at the dance looking as glamorous as a trendsetting musician attending the Grammy Awards.

    “We’re going to make her like Taylor Swift tonight,” said stylist Shauna Morris, as she ironed Hally’s hair into thick strands of loose curls. “That is who she picked out.”

  • Colorado U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet met with members of the Littleton Hawks U16 AA Hockey Team and their coaches during the team’s recent visit to Washington., D.C.
    The team, in the nation’s capital to compete in a national tournament with 47 other teams from around the country, stopped by Bennet’s office and toured the U.S. Capitol.

  • A small gathering of local residents waited patiently on April 13 at Columbine High School, where each made a ceremonious stitch in a patch for the National 9/11 Flag.

    The partially restored banner — which was found in October 2001 hanging from wreckage at 90 West St. across from the Twin Towers — now contains pieces of flags from across the country, including threads from the historic Lincoln Flag and, now, shreds from a former Leawood Elementary School flag.

  • Just as the metro area’s weather took a dramatic turn last weekend, shifting from highs above 80 on Saturday to a snowstorm the following morning, far stranger things were happening on Neptune.

    The planet, for example, may have been experiencing a rainstorm — with liquid methane precipitating in beach-ball-size drops.

    And nearby, on Neptune’s largest moon, Triton, the entire atmosphere over one hemisphere may have been frozen to the surface during an unimaginably cold winter.

  • During his flights from Denver to New York and Los Angeles, Dakota Ridge High School student Graham Stookey has more on his mind than most of his peers.

    As many of his fellow seniors begin stressing about prom dates and college acceptance letters, Graham is negotiating terms with record labels on both coasts, choosing a deal that could help solidify his musical career and make him a household name.

  • James Paul Palin and Denise Kinrade-Palin, owners of Once Upon A Child of Littleton, were awarded the Sales Excellence Award at the company's annual conference and trade show at the Hilton Orlando in Orlando, Fla., from Jan. 22-25.

    The award is given to franchisees who achieve a specific level of sales.
