  • Arrest made in Lakewood townhome fire

    West Metro Fire Rescue investigators have made an arrest in connection with a fire that destroyed three townhomes in Lakewood.

    The suspect, Robert Carlton Lohman, 41, is being charged with multiple counts of arson and reckless endangerment stemming from an early-morning fire on Feb. 15. Investigators allege that Lohman started a fire on the rear patio of his townhome at 8378 W. Virginia Ave. about 2:05 a.m. while Lohman’s family and other residents were asleep.

    Everyone in the home, including the pets, made it out of the house safely.

  • Seceding from rational thought

    Just think of the opportunities secession will give to Coloradans from all walks of life. Once we rid ourselves of that evil scourge that’s haunted us since we became a state a tortuous 136 years ago, we can move on and meet our true destiny.

    Snow, Rebels rally in the fourth to knock off Littleton

    Jon Snow scored a game-high 30 points and pulled down 11 rebounds as Columbine bounced back from its first loss of the season to topple Littleton, 66-58, on Dec. 6.
    The Rebels (2-1) trailed 50-45 after three quarters, but rallied to outscore the visiting Lions 21-8 over the final eight minutes.

    Andrew Malmstrom led Litttleton (2-3) with 23 points.

  • Cyclones block Eagles’ direction

    The saying, ‘when a door closes a window opens’ doesn’t mention anything about screens blocking those doors and windows. Such was the case for the Dakota Ridge Lady Eagles when they lost 66-40 to the Pueblo West Cyclones at home on Dec. 8 at the Battle at the Ridge tournament.
    The Lady Cyclones put up a screen so tight under the net that it closed the doors and windows of opportunity for host Dakota Ridge.

  • Defensive pressure turns game Chatfield’s way

    DENVER — Anthony Shoeboot wouldn’t take credit for his play on defense. The Chatfield senior figures he was just one part of the equation. But his guarding of Mullen’s inbound play certainly played havoc on the Mustangs during their Dec. 8 game at Hutchison Field House.
    Chatfield’s full-court pressure defense ignited a half-closing 12-4 run, and the Chargers never trailed again in an 86-67 victory.

    If you were at the concession stand a little too long, you probably missed it.
    Chatfield scored four goals in the first five minutes of the second period to turn a 1-1 tie into a comfortable lead over Dakota Ridge on Dec. 9 at the Edge Ice Arena. The teams were even the rest of the way, but the damage was done as the Chargers came away with a 7-3 victory over the Eagles.

  • The gym goes Zen: FitClub Columbine opens state-of-the-art facility in Littleton

    The first thing visitors will notice when they walk into Koko FitClub Columbine is the absence of pumping, loud music and the lack of mirrors. Instead, visitors are greeting with quiet pop music, serene colors and gentle lighting.

    “It’s the world’s first and only automated personal training studio,” Koko FitClub owner Alex Keller said. “It’s a fusion of technology and exercise and makes exercise accessible for people who have trouble, for different reasons, maintaining an exercise program.”

  • Library will draw on reserve funds again in 2013

    Jeffco libraries will maintain their level of services in 2013 despite another revenue shortfall, a half-dozen mountain-area residents learned on Saturday.

    The $430,000 shortfall is a result of fewer property-tax dollars being collected and an increase in costs the library must pay the county, Pam Nissler, Jefferson County Public Library executive director, said during a community forum at Evergreen Library.

  • Harriman Lake Park to remain closed

    Residents will have to wait a few months more before they can use Harriman Lake Park, which has been closed since November 2011 for a project to rebuild the dam. 

    The park, at South Kipling Parkway and West Quincy Avenue, includes a 1.4-mile trail around the lake. Foothills Park & Recreation District has leased much of the park from Denver Water since 1995. Foothills has also leased 11 acres southwest of the lake from Jefferson County Open Space for 15 years.
