    As I sat back and reflected on 2011 with our Year in Review sections in the Dec. 28 editions I couldn’t help but hope that 2012 will be just as enjoyable as the past 12 months were.

    Often associated with European countries, curling started to get a footing in American culture when it was broadcast on television during the 1988 Winter Olympic Games held in Calgary, Alberta, as a demonstration sport.

  • Swimming is Marosy's life

    For Kristi Marosy there is just something about the pool. Maybe it’s the chlorine that has infused with her DNA, or maybe it’s the fetal lull of the water splashing into the gutters. But whatever it is it’s got a hold of her good.

  • Rebels, Snow weather Tigers to...

    Senior center Jon Snow scored Columbine’s first seven points and finished with 18 to lead the Rebels past visiting Lakewood 60-46 on Dec. 16.

    THORNTON — Maybe it was her nerves, but in the moments before Ashley Horodyski took to the pool for her 100-yard butterfly finals on Dec. 17 at the Colorado Coaches Invitational the Columbine senior was lining up in Lane 6. Unfortunately, she was marked to be in Lane 5.
    As it turned out, it probably didn’t matter which lane she was in. She didn’t have much to be worried about.
