  • Nuts for toffee: Steamboat transplant brings recipe for a sweet venture to Morrison

    One day some 15 years ago, a friend gifted Pete DeWolf a box of toffee.

    Though it was quickly devoured, the toffee got DeWolf’s gears turning.

    “I thought, ‘Wow, this is delicious. However, if I were to make it, this is how I would do differently,’ ” he said.

    And thus began his efforts to create his own recipe. The rest is sweet history.

    HIGHLANDS RANCH — For the first five games of the 2016-17 girls basketball season, Columbine’s opponents faced a tall order, trying to stop Maura Singer, the Lady Rebels’ 6-foot-3 sophomore center.

  • Grinch-like Gators stuff Rebels’ stocking with coal

    WESTMINSTER — Bah humbug.

    It probably felt like the Grinch stealing Christmas or a lump of coal was left in their stocking. What’s for certain is that the Columbine Rebels didn’t expect a 5-4 loss to lowly Standley Lake on Dec. 20 at the Ice Centre at the Promenade.

  • Eagles find a way to win

    DENVER — Anyone who looks at Dakota Ridge’s hockey roster will notice that Trey Konsella is a defenseman. But, truthfully, he’s an offensive defenseman. His three goals already this season proves as much. None of those goals was bigger than the one he scored against Denver East on Dec. 23 at DU’s Joy Burns Arena.

  • Kept in the dark at light speed

    When my sister and I were young, we loved the 1960s space opera “Lost in Space.” And, without a doubt, our favorite episode involved various members of the wandering Robinson family silently disappearing from the Jupiter 2 one at a time, in apparent defiance of the laws of physics.

    Curi Yutzy knew the 2016-17 boys basketball season would be one of growing pains for his almost completely-rebuilt Dakota Ridge squad with just one senior. But judging from the Eagles’ 69-58 loss to second-ranked Rock Canyon on Dec. 16, Dakota Ridge seems to be finding its legs.

    Play defense, rebound, run and score — and repeat. 

    That was definitely the philosophy for Chatfield’s boys basketball team Dec. 13 facing an athletic and dangerous Far Northeast squad. Chatfield (5-1) used its defensive pressure and focus to control the boards on both ends of the court to run away with a 72-47 home victory.

  • Dinegar, Jaguars pull away from Lobos

    DENVER — Just 3 minutes into the game and Charles Dinegar was already having himself a game. The D’Evelyn junior had scored the team’s first nine points and was creating a defensive mismatch for the Conifer Lobos on Dec. 16. That’s when Conifer employed a 1-3-1 zone intended to slow Dinegar down.
