  • Through faith and activity, one man finds hope

    It hasn’t been easy, and it may never be. But with every step and every stretch, Wayne Wolf finds healing.

    Nine years ago, at the healthy age of 45, Wolf had a stroke. Within minutes, he went from being being an active and successful business owner to being immobile and incapable of putting his thoughts into words. But after years of inpatient and outpatient therapy, Wolf decided to toss his wheelchair aside and take matters into his own hands.

    “I couldn’t walk. I couldn’t talk,” he said. “Now, I can do everything.”

  • Couples marry, renew vows at Red Rocks

    On a warm, sunny Valentine’s Day, dozens gathered at the top of Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre.

    Some wore veils and carried bouquets, while others dressed casually in jeans and a T-shirt. But all ventured to the park for the same reason – to share their love on the day dedicated to it.

    The Red Rocks Mass Wedding and Vow Renewal ceremony is hosted yearly at the park by former radio personality Uncle Nasty, also known as Gregg Stone. Though he is no longer associated with a radio station, Stone has continued the tradition.

  • Local church provides convenient way to mark Ash Wednesday

    The Rev. Todd Sorensen and two of his church’s lay members stand in the parking lot of King Soopers, ashes in hand. The wind whips at their St. Gregory’s Episcopal Church banner, and the bright sun beats down.

    A large van drives up to the corner of the parking lot where the three had erected a table, some chairs and pamphlets. The driver, Amy Hansen, a parishioner of St. Gregory’s, gets out, but the four youngsters in the back of the van only open the doors.
