  • Is this an argument we need to have?

    How can we talk about the shootings in Connecticut — or Aurora or Columbine or Virginia Tech or an Oregon shopping mall or anywhere else — without getting into an argument?

  • Finding our way to actual solutions

    Readers might be wondering why this week’s Courier has no stories with local reaction to the massacre in Newtown, Conn. — and that’s a fair question.

  • Sheriff's Calls

    Griffiths leads Lady Falcons to fourth consecutive victory
    COLORADO SPRINGS — Front Range Christian broke open a tied ballgame in the second half, outscoring Colorado Springs Christian School 22-13 en route to a 39-30 victory on Dec. 15.
    Leigh Griffiths led the Lady Falcons with 14 points. Shelby Bloomquist added seven.
    Front Range Christian improved to 4-0 on the season.

  • 2012 all-conference football teams

    Following is a list of all-confererence football selections for the 2012 season:

  • Rebels win Classic on Snow’s late basket

    The Columbine Rebels knew that they had a lot on the line. A win against Chaparral meant that they would be the undefeated winner of the Columbine Classic. A loss meant that they would be in a three-way tie for first place.
    And by the end of the last game in the series — Columbine vs. Chaparral — the game clocked ran painstakingly slow. With 2 minutes, 23 seconds left in the game, the score was tied 48-48.

  • Greene, Chargers fend off Rebels

    Logan Greene wasn’t sure what to expect. The Chatfield senior forward didn’t know if his first-period goal would be enough. After all, the Chargers were playing arch-rival Columbine in front of a standing-room only crowd at the Edge Ice Arena on Dec. 14.
    And these games — no matter whether it’s a non-conference affair as this one was or a league matchup — you can pretty much throw the record books out the window. These are usually about personal pride.

  • Chatfield's Hobbs diving into the fray

    THORNTON — Averly Hobbs walks around the pool with her iPod plugged in listening to fast, upbeat music. It pumps her up.
    She forgets about everything and everybody around her to prepare for her next dive, and she’ll do jumping jacks to break her nerves. Oh, and yeah, she’ll be chewing on her ever-present gum.

  • Holding the line in the Middle East

    When people think of Kuwait, the tiny Arab state on the Persian Gulf, they frequently picture oil derricks, the Iraqi invasion that sparked the first Persian Gulf War, and an arid desert landscape.

     

    Line dancing probably doesn’t cross their minds. 

    Yet Littleton resident Cady Kennedy can’t separate her memories of Kuwait from dance steps and country-western tunes. 

  • Hikers find skeleton at Red Rocks Park

    A human skeleton has been found by hikers near Red Rocks Park. 

    Three hikers found the skeleton three tenths of a mile above and to the west of Red Rocks Amphitheatre on Friday, Dec. 14.

    The hikers notified a Jeffco sheriff's deputy who was patrolling the area and led the deputy back to the remains. 

    The skeleton was found in thick brush and appeared to have been there for some time. The person had been clad in blue sweatpants or shorts, and there were no noticeable signs of trauma, the Sheriff's Office reported.
