  • Littleton gives OK to tattoo shops

    Littleton has put its stamp of approval on tattoo shops.

    The City Council voted 6-1 to change zoning ordinances to allow tattoo parlors and body art shops in areas zoned for community and general business uses or in the downtown area. The shops had previously been allowed only in industrial-zoned areas.

    Under the new zoning, tattoo shops would have to be more than 1,000 feet from each other — meaning only one shop would be allowed downtown.

  • Council urged to ask ACC to keep pool open

    Users of Arapahoe Community College’s swimming pool want the Littleton City Council to persuade ACC not to close the facility.

    The college announced late last year that it intended to close the 39-year-old pool this year to make way for more activities like yoga and Pilates. Since then a group of users, including participants in Silver Sneakers swim classes and members of local swim teams, have been trying to get the college to change its mind.

    Vandals visited the course on three separate occasions over the past month and were apparently discouraged during the third incident by recently installed surveillance cameras that photographed two suspects and a vehicle.

  • Lady Falcons, despite loss, headed to regionals

    Front Range Christian may have dropped the third-place game of the 2A District 4 tournament 32-17 to Denver Christian on Feb. 28 at Vista Peak High School, but it gained so much more four days earlier.

    The Lady Falcons (3-19) scored a 34-30 win over Limon in the pigtail game Feb. 24 to lock up a regional tournament berth.

  • Burlington uses late free throws to top FRCS

    AURORA — From an outsider’s view, according to Front Range Christian boys basketball coach Brad Folk, the Falcons’ Feb. 28 game against Burlington was a loss. Well, it was. 

    The Cougars won the 2A District 4 championship game 45-39 at Vista Peak High School. But to the Falcons, it was a program builder.

  • Eagles stun Air Academy, Frozen Four-bound

    In the 2011-12 season, Dakota Ridge’s ice hockey team was 1-18, and any promise of a brighter future, at least from the outside looking in, was bleak. That was also Alec Hines’ first season as head coach. 

    Three years later, the Eagles are one win away from playing for a state championship.

    Zach Williams and Reed Hoogenboom scored first-period goals, and Graehm Konsella’s second-period tally proved to be the game-winner as Dakota Ridge upset host Air Academy, 3-2, on Feb. 28 at the Sertich Ice Arena in Colorado Springs.
