  • Making the perfect pizza crust is a delicate art.

    Flour, water, yeast, sugar and salt are the only necessary ingredients, and the perfect combination is crucial. Adding just enough yeast gives the crust a characteristic, mild flavor. Too much yeast will make the crust as bloated as a balloon. And the temperature of the water had better be just right.

    It’s a balance South Jeffco’s Bob Bruso knows all too well — because he’s spent decades perfecting it.

  • Tatum Moore is a beautiful 3-year-old girl. She and her older sister Tanner are very similar: silky blond hair, striking blue eyes and enough frenetic energy to power an 18-wheeler.

    But there's something different about Tatum. Her parents call her a "silent angel," a term used lovingly to describe their daughter's lack of communication skills. She likes to play like any normal child but can't always make her hands do what she wants them to.

    Tatum Moore has Rett syndrome.

  • If you don’t suffer from migraines, you likely know someone who does. The prevalence of migraine headaches is high, with attacks occurring in 17 percent of women and 6 percent of men each year.

From holiday decorations to seasonal plants and the stress of guests in your home, your plans for the season should include some thoughtful preparation and sharing with your pets.

  • LOL. OMG! BRB. TTYL.

    That means: “Laugh out loud. Oh my gosh! Be right back. Talk to you later.”

    The above translation can offer help for parents trying to fathom their teens’ obsession with cell phones and texting. And when those same teens are baffled by their elders’ objections to between-course correspondence at the dinner table, they too can benefit from a little cross-generational translation.

    Enter South Jeffco resident Michelle Cimino, author of “Cell Phone Etiquette: Observations from a Mom.”

  •   Columbine High School teacher Paula Reed had some issues with Nathaniel Hawthorne’s classic novel “The Scarlet Letter.” A 10-year chronological gap in the story prompted a horde of student questions in the two decades Reed has taught the material.

  •   Black-belt taekwondo instructor Ken Parks is looking for a few good castaways. They’re the folks he had in mind when he opened Red Rocks Alternative Martial Arts, South Jeffco’s newest dojo that’s a little less Stephen Oliver and a bit more Napoleon Dynamite.

    “The ‘alternative’ person gets lost. I kind of sit around the herd and just look for the ones who fall off,” Parks said of the traditional martial arts experience.

  • Major activities, accomplishments

  • Inside a tiny flower shop opening Monday in Morrison, happiness and hope have found a place on the shelves alongside plump roses and ruby-red glass vases.
