  • Rebels end slide against Chargers

    It took until the second quarter, but the Columbine Lady Rebels found Kate Gelston. The Chatfield Senior 3-point shooter was lighting it up from beyond the arc until Columbine went with a box-and-one defense to rein her in. Once the Lady Rebels did that, Chatfield’s offense was held in check, and Columbine’s offense came into its own.

  • Remembering Clarence, a Capitol fixture

    There are people we encounter in life who achieve notoriety and influence beyond what any reasonable person would expect. Clarence Miller, who passed away recently at the age of 64, was one of those people.

  • Chargers rally, stave off Rebels

    Riley Welch has been dreaming about playing in a game like this since he was in seventh grade. Maybe it could’ve been a little less heart-thumping for the Chatfield sophomore, but the end result was still satisfying nevertheless.
    Welch came off the bench to score all of his team-high 13 points in the fourth quarter, and Chatfield held off two late-second chances from Columbine to escape with a 55-54 victory on Jan. 22 at Chatfield Senior High School.

Baldwin was thrown from the bike; he was pronounced dead at the scene.

  • Lockout at 8 schools in Columbine area ends

  • Upgrades provide a big lift

    The house had become a prison for Jeaninne Kasa. But that was before the Zephyr Express.

    Kasa, 54, has a progressive form of multiple sclerosis, a chronic disease that attacks the central nervous system. Within two years of her diagnosis in 2010, the former elementary school teacher had lost the ability to walk up and down the stairs in her home near Lilley Gulch Park. 

    “Oh, boy, it was hard. I was depressed,” Kasa said. “We went through a lot of troubles back then.” 

  • Deputy to kids: Don’t let drugs prey on you

    An American bald eagle seems like a strange visual aid for a talk about the dangers of drugs. 

    But for almost 20 years, Arapahoe County sheriff’s Deputy Brian McKnight has used birds of prey to start a conversation with kids in Littleton on the dangers of alcohol, marijuana and cigarettes.
