    WHEAT RIDGE —Haley Kopec must feel like she’s watching — make that starring in — the movie “Groundhog Day.’’

    If you ask Columbine head coach Chris Gassman, he’ll tell you that Matthew Meyer is a player with the kind of attitude that you want for your team. He’s also somebody who might play just a little too hard at times, but he doesn’t quit. He didn’t Feb. 1 against Aspen at the Edge Ice Arena.
    The Columbine senior scored the game-tying goal with 3 minutes, 25 seconds left in regulation and then won the game with 5.5 seconds remaining in overtime as the Rebels scored a crucial 3-2 victory over the visiting Skiers.

    More than a thousand people, many of them law officers, came to the 1stBank Center in Broomfield on Monday to remember sheriff’s Sgt. David Baldwin, 50. Baldwin was killed while on duty Jan. 27 when his Harley-Davidson motorcycle reportedly was struck on Colorado 93 by a vehicle driving in the oncoming lane.
