  • SHERIFF'S CALLS

    Could they be meteorites?

  • Bipartisan education reform bill introduced

    As I wrote several weeks ago, I’ve been working with Gov. Bill Ritter and a bipartisan group of legislators to craft a rigorous education reform bill to prepare Colorado’s educational system for the challenges of a new global economy. That bill, called the Colorado Achievement Plan for Kids (or CAP4K), was formally introduced last week.

  • To err is human, to proofread divine

    Last week the Colorado Department of Transportation confronted a problem that is usually more closely associated with newspapers — the dreaded typo. Here in the world of print journalism, one of our biggest fears is that a rogue spelling will escape our attention and wind up in a monster-size headline on the front page.

  • Large steel building creates wall between neighbors

    Veronica Weins knew her neighbor in Columbine Hills was building a garage, but she didn’t know it was going to be a featureless, metal industrial box almost two stories tall and nearly as big as a house.

    So instead of a view of rooftops and treetops, as of November Weins has gazed at a very different vista.

    “It’s just so big that’s all we look at. It’s like a big wall there, and we used to be able to see way over to the next street,” said Weins, a retired corporate legal assistant in her 70s.

  • Festival to feature local filmmaker

    When you're just starting out in film, it's good to be a multi-tasker like Littleton resident Timothy Anderson, 25, who was writer, director, editor, motorboat operator, publicist and producer on his most recent short film, "At The Surface."

    The movie is premiereing at the Vail Film Festival, which runs April 3-6. The 24-minute-long feature will be presented at noon, April 4 and 10:45 a.m. Sunday April 6.

  • Littleton-based foundation still helping African village

    It has been more than 10 years since Omar Dia was gunned down at a bus stop in downtown Denver by two skinheads. The shock and anger over the hate crime led Coloradans to an outpouring of donations and support for Dia’s widow and children and the people of his village of Diorbivol, Senegal.

    And a Littleton-based foundation, along with some South Jeffco high school students, is keeping that effort alive.

  • Arapahoe knocks around Columbine in nonleague tilt

    CENTENNIAL- Columbine’s young pitching staff learned an old lesson March 21.

    Seemingly up for the battle against Arapahoe, the Rebels watched the little things add up to big problems as the Warriors ran away with a 13-5 Class 5A nonleague victory.

  • Chargers blank Mustangs

    Callie Hancock got her curve on.

    Chasing down an excellent through ball from teammate Stephanie Rowe, Hancock was surprised that the soccer ball spilled out of the hands of Mullen’s goalkeeper and right to her feet March 19.

  • Rebels run past Eagles

    ARVADA- Speed thrills.

    Into the wind or away from the wind, the ladies of Columbine lacrosse can flat out fly, which is more than enough to make you forget about the occasional awkward or errant pass.

  • Rebels rebound from loss to Chargers, thump Cougars

    LAKEWOOD- It’s the little things in sports that mean a lot.

    Columbine did all the little things right in its boys lacrosse game against Evergreen on March 20 at Trailblazer Stadium.
