  • Getting back to normal

      LAKEWOOD — It’s Thursday night and Taylor Hunt repetitiously swims back and forth in Lane 5 at the Carmody Recreation Center. That in itself isn’t all that surprising. The Columbine High School senior started swimming when she was 6.

    It also shouldn’t be too shocking considering the 17-year-old practices nine times a week, including three morning sessions from 5-6:30 a.m. for the Foothills Swim Club and will be adding two to three practices with Columbine High this winter.

    The police are waiting until the investigation is complete before deciding if charges will be filed.

  • Dedication to school, community

     It’s my fortunate opportunity to introduce Dakota Ridge High School senior Jake Iannella. People who know Jake quickly come to appreciate his cheerful disposition, integrity, leadership qualities, and willingness to learn. Jake has been an outstanding student body leader, including key roles in Leadership Council and on the football and track and field teams. When I speak to my children about my hopes and dreams for whom I would like them to become, I easily picture the accomplishments and actions of Jake.

    Robynne Hill played competitive soccer until the age of 12, when she developed a nervous system disorder that causes intense pain in her legs. But four years later, she is thrilled to be part of another competitive sport: sled hockey. 

    Now 16, Hill catches a ride from Colorado Springs with her mom for practices and games at The Edge Ice Arena, where she has been playing with the Colorado Avalanche Sled Hockey Team for just over a year.
