  • Several hundred people packed the public hearing room at the Jeffco government headquarters on Saturday to celebrate the adoption of 26 children by 17 families on National Adoption Day.

    While the day kicked off a new life for the families, it also marked the end of countless hours of work by caseworkers from Jeffco’s Human Services Department and adoption agencies across the metro area.

  • Even with a room full of amateur detectives on the case, the culprit almost got away with murder.

    Littleton’s Bemis Library hosted “Murder in the Stacks” on Friday, an evening of mystery and comedy with the Thornton-based Creative Revolution Theatre Company. The audience of more than 50 analyzed clues, grilled the suspects and worked together to solve a murder mystery.

  • The Colorado Center for the Blind and Arapahoe Community College again partnered to give sight-challenged students from the Front Range a chance to get hands-on science experience — by dissecting sharks.

    The center hosted about 40 students Friday for the class, taught by ACC biology professor Terry Harrison since 2005. Students who are visually impaired or blind participate in a part of science class they’d otherwise miss: dissection.

  • The men gathered around a flatbed truck, handing out seven old but well-maintained M-1 rifles and clips of blank ammunition.

    The 11 men from the Pat Hannon Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 4666 in Littleton, some in their 80s, then walked to a shelter at Fort Logan National Cemetery on Nov. 6. They positioned themselves as they had a thousand times before and waited for the funeral party to arrive.

  • After months of fund-raising and work by volunteers from across the country, the Veterans Monument at Ken-Caryl Ranch was officially presented to the community on Saturday, just in time for Veterans Day.

  • On Friday, the Foothills Park and Recreation District will give residents a chance to try several classes that focus on the connection between mind and body.

    Foothills will open up its yoga, tai chi, Pilates reformer and barre revolution classes for 20-minutes sessions. The free day lets residents sample different ways to exercise, said Tami Adams-Schlieman, fitness supervisor for Foothills.

  • Rebels Without Applause, Columbine High’s drama group, is set to premiere “Nooses Off” by Don Zolidis on Thursday in the school’s auditorium.

  • A delegation of citizen ambassadors is set to travel to Littleton’s sister city — Bega, Australia — in 2016, and the group is seeking more members.

    More than 20 people have signed up to make the 9,000-mile journey to the southeast coast of Australia and the Bega Valley. For most of the trip, set to depart March 18 and return April 4, the citizen ambassadors will stay with Bega residents and get a glimpse of their everyday lives.

  • Most pumpkin patches don’t come with an obstacle course.

    Thousands descended on the Botanical Gardens at Chatfield on Saturday for the annual Great Pumpkin Haul, a 2-mile obstacle course in which each competitor carries a pumpkin — or two pumpkins, for the more extreme athletes.

    And if carrying a pumpkin or two while climbing over a wall or through a tunnel isn’t hard enough, many participants were decked out in Halloween costumes as well.
