  • Putting the fun in fundamentals

    The 100-degree heat of summer didn’t deter 98 lacrosse campers — 80 kids ages 7 to 15 and 18 high school-aged players — from soaking in all the knowledge given to them at Cornerstone Park.

    From simple skill sets to pick and rolls, Colorado Mammoth players imparted their wealth of knowledge at the team’s second annual lacrosse camp July 21-22 in hopes of furthering the rapidly growing development of the sport in the Rocky Mountain region.

  • Deputy tackles carjacking suspect on I-70

    A feverish crime spree on a dog-day afternoon ended abruptly in the westbound lanes of I-70 on Wednesday when a Jeffco sheriff's deputy brought a suspect to heel on the busy highway.

    All told, the carjacking/burglary rampage involved four vehicles and three homes, sheriff's spokeswoman Jacki Kelley said. It ended dramatically near the Genesee exit when Deputy Fred Haggett tackled the male suspect, who had just surrendered two weapons after terrorizing passing motorists on I-70.

    By Carol Brzeczek

    The Colorado Open Records Act provides citizens with a process to gain access to public records. Under Colorado law, information packets no longer constitute “work product” under CORA once they “are produced and distributed to the members of a public body for their use or consideration in a public meeting.”

  • Same-sex marriage coming to Colorado

    When I was a junior at Steamboat Springs High School in 1975, there was a huge controversy when the Boulder County clerk began issuing same-sex marriage licenses. It was a national story, but it was really big news in Steamboat, as the clerk had grown up there and her father was the longtime clerk in our county.

  • Columbine finishes 2014 ranked 12th nationally

    After rolling to a 10-run victory in its District 5 Little League opener, the Ken-Caryl 9-10 team dug itself deep holes in the next two games. The first resulted in a 13-1 loss to Cherry Creek. The second almost produced a comeback victory, but ended in a tournament-ending defeat.

  • Johnson continues Bandimere dominance

    MORRISON — Allen Johnson is still the king of the mountain.

    The 35th annual NHRA Mopar Mile-High Nationals ended just like the previous two and five others since 2007 — with a Johnson victory in the Pro Stock division. The Greeneville, Tenn., driver toppled teammate Jed Coughlin Jr. in the rain-delayed final July 20 at Bandimere Speedway after Coughlin red-lighted the start. Even if Coughlin hadn’t red-lighted, it would’ve been a tough task to beat Johnson in what has become his race to lose.

  • Fighting a war, at home and abroad

    The sacrifices made by U.S. soldiers on foreign battlefields during World War II and the support from Americans back home are the focus of a new exhibit at the Littleton Museum.

    “Littleton Goes to War: 1941-1945,” a year-long exhibit that opened July 5, not only traces the arc of the global conflict but also shows the major roles that places like Littleton played, said museum director Tim Nimz.

  • Woehr vying for House District 25 seat as Libertarian candidate

    Libertarian Jack Woehr is launching his campaign for the state House District 25 seat for the second time in recent years.

    “I am running because the political system has gotten kind of toxic,” Woehr said. “Gone are the days of the honorable opponent.”

    This year Woehr is challenging two political newcomers who are vying in House District 25, Democrat Janet Doyle and Republican Jon Keyser. Incumbent Republican Cheri Gerou decided to retire from office.

  • 4 men thank Fire Rescue for saving them after cardiac arrests

    When people experience heart-stopping moments of the figurative kind, that’s usually a positive; a literal heart-stopping moment can be deadly unless life-saving actions are taken immediately.

    Thanks to those immediate life-saving actions, four men, all of whom had recent cardiac arrests, thanked the people who helped save their lives.

    On July 9, William Brewton, Victor Anderson and Michael Howell thanked the Littleton Fire Rescue first responders.
