  • Black and white and strong all over

    In the basement of their South Jeffco home Dakotah Mann and his mother, Stefanie, are carefully stacking Olympic weights on a homemade structure made of nothing but tiny strips of rolled up newspaper and glue. They manage to pile 525 pounds on top of the seemingly fragile 38.4-gram creation, and it shows no sign of weakening.

    Slowly, they release their grip on the final 45-pound weight. A crunch breaks the silence, and hundreds of pounds of iron drop less than an inch before hitting safety guards, the clank of each plate resonating.

  • Hicks: 7-year-old, 24-hour game tied together

    Christian Moreno epitomizes what the 24 Hours of Hockey is all about. In a lot of ways he could symbolize who the benefit game, now in its fourth year, is for.

  • Rebels rally once, but not twice

    GREENWOOD VILLAGE -- Maybe Columbine shouldn’t have been in the district finals anyway. But just the simple fact that the Rebels got there -- and how they got there -- was a testament to the team’s will.

    Unfortunately, will can only carry you so far.

  • County dedicates new Open Space park

     

    Civil War buffs, Westernaires riders and a general spirit of antiquity permeated the Hildebrand Ranch Park dedication May 6, though afternoon showers forced visitors to seek the cover of a festival tent.

The officers were responding to a 911 call made by the suspect’s wife.
