  • Smart-phone app alerts CPR-trained to nearby patients in need of help

    Let’s say you’re at the grocery store and your smart phone alerts you that someone in the parking lot is having a heart attack. Even though you’re not a medical expert, you know cardiopulmonary resuscitation, and you rush out to start or assist with CPR. And, maybe, thanks to that timely aid, the patient recovers.

    This is the idea behind the smart-phone application PulsePoint CPR/AED that West Metro Fire Rescue has launched in its district.

  • Miller stocking up on racing

    MORRISON — By day, Mike Miller works 8 to 5 as a high network stockbroker, placing trades for his clientele over the phone. By weekend, the 2010 Columbine High School graduate can usually be found at the racetrack, especially Bandimere Speedway.

  • Koza investing in himself

    John Koza’s goal once he graduated from Chatfield Senior High in 2014 wasn’t necessarily to play college athletics, though the 2014 Columbine Courier male athlete of the year would’ve been able to do so. 

    After all, the four-time 5A Jeffco League boys tennis MVP capped a career with an unblemished mark in conference play and a third-place finish at the state tournament in 2013. That’s the best finish in Chatfield history.

  • ‘Still here after 100 years’

    England was in the throes of World War II when London resident Mary Barry went into labor with her first child.

    She remembers many of the roads were closed because of the bombing. Shells exploded all around the ambulance as it meandered its way to the hospital.

    On an earlier occasion, Barry recalled how she and her husband, Jim, were caught off guard by a sudden barrage that was so intense they were unable to escape to shelter. Hunkered down in the street, Mary asked Jim if he thought they would survive until morning.

  • Family fit camp makes for a ‘fun’ Saturday morning

    It’s a peaceful Saturday morning at Clement Park. Groups of runners are preparing for a 5K. Ducks and geese are walking through the grass. Locals are running along the path, some with dogs at their sides.

    In the midst of all this, a small group begins a game of dodgeball. Even as the players are knocked out, they run behind enemy lines and do a set of 10 pushups. And once they have a ball in hand, they can attempt to hit their opponents, who now have enemy fire coming from both sides.
