  • 'In the pink' has whole new meaning

    When I first came down with cancer and began the chemo routine, I never thought twice about the color pink. Now I notice every woman who comes into the chemo lab decked out in a pink hat with matching pink scarf.

    I understand that the color pink has come to designate those with breast cancer, which leaves out men for the most part. But today I wonder whether pink is confined to breast cancer. Do some of those women running around with pink hats have colon cancer? Or lung cancer?

  • Man arrested in Internet luring of a child

    Donald Joseph Cameron, 40, of Thornton was arrested Monday night on suspicion of Internet sexual exploitation of a child. Cameron, the editor of Ski Racing International, is alleged to have engaged in sexual online chat with someone he believed to be a teen under age 15.

    According to the arrest affidavit, Cameron performed sexual acts on a webcam knowing that the teen he knew to be under-aged was watching. The under-aged teen was actually an undercover district attorney’s investigator.

    Ehlers is accused of having met someone he believed to be an under-aged teenage girl on the Internet and engaged in graphic sexual online “chat.” The teen actually was an undercover Jefferson County district attorney’s investigator.

  • Car break-in ring broken up, but Sheriff says it's jut the tip of the iceberg

    An Oct. 24 arrest by the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office led to the breakup of a car break-in ring tied to at least 10 break-ins and to the recovery of thousands of dollars in stolen property.

    But the arrest of several juveniles and an adult in the case didn’t even put a dent in the problem of car break-ins, according to the sheriff’s office. Car break-ins are particularly common around Red Rocks Park and Matthews/Winters Park, with 215 since January.

  • Without a trace: One year later, Nonnie Dotson's fate remains a mystery

    A homicide investigator with the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office says it’s “rare” that people vanish without a trace in this era of e-mails, credit cards, cell phones and other technology-based activity.

    That is the case, however, with 33-year-old Nonnie Dotson, a single mother and Air Force nurse based in San Antonio, Texas, who vanished while visiting her brother, Tony, in Littleton on Nov. 19, 2006, when she left his home to go to a nearby store.

  • Some days the bark is worse than the bite

    There are days, and then there are days. I had a day last Saturday.

    It all started with my grandson’s 6th birthday party. My wife, who takes such things very seriously, spent at least two days running around finding party favors, candy, decorations and other assorted junk. By Saturday morning, you would swear we were in the home party business.
