  • Children and their parents enjoyed an afternoon farming fruits and vegetables, shopping, and preparing sit-down meals — all while aboard a bus.

    Rich Haas believes he chose his life. He grew up with an alcoholic father and several siblings — all now deceased — whom he described as “crazy.”

    But it was a decision his soul was willing to endure.

    Haas, a resident of Morrison, is the author of the newly released book “Sacred Quantum Metaphysics.”

  • Today’s high school freshmen weren’t yet born on Sept. 11, 2001. The youngsters climbed anyway.

    Many who attended Sunday weren’t in New York, Washington or Pennsylvania on that horrific day, and don’t know anyone who was. And still they climbed.

    Some participants weren’t firefighters and didn’t have any connection to first responders. And yet they climbed as well.

  • The Audubon Nature Center at Chatfield State Park hosted a “100 Years for Birds” event on a recent Sunday in honor of the centennial of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act.

    The event offered information booths and displays on various species of migratory birds; a live raptor presentation by Nature’s Educators; a rubber-duck scavenger hunt for the youngsters; and nature walks led by master birders.

  • When the summer sun is scorching and the pool is open for one more day, everyone and their dog come out for a swim. Literally.

    Deer Creek Pool hosted its annual Doggy Dip on a recent Sunday evening, and more pools in the South Jeffco area were scheduled to host similar events before closing for the season.

    Pet owners of all ages brought canines of varying sizes to enjoy the water, the fun and the community.

  • A South Jeffco golfer was treated last month to an unexpected trip to Baltusrol Golf Club for the PGA Championship.

    But the journey to Springfield, N.J., for the season’s final major didn’t begin on a qualifying course or as an item on a personal bucket list. It started with a news story.

  • Every time Karen Brown watched coverage of the Ironman World Championship in Kona, Hawaii, she was moved to tears. She saw Julie Moss win the silver medal in February 1982, and dreamed of competing herself.

    “Watching them, I thought, ‘Oh, they’re professional athletes, and I only run for recreation,’ ” Brown said. “I thought I could never do it.”

    The Inter-Canyon Fire Protection District hoped that by firing up the grills this past weekend it would be able to muster some new firefighters. 

  • After co-teaching art at Montessori Peaks Academy for six years, Andrea Rollins and Michele Hardesty decided it was time to expand their reach and act on an idea that had been brewing for years.

    MORRISON — Maybe it’s cliche to say there’s nothing else like it, but it’s true.

    “We’re very fortunate to have Red Rocks inside of our own backyard,” said artist Keith “Scramble” Campbell. “The reason there is so much activity there is because it really, truly is the best place to see live music. It really changes your perspective on other venues, too.”
