    Habitat for Humanity breaks ground on 63-home development

    SHERIDAN, Colo. — Habitat for Humanity has started work on its largest development so far. And it couldn’t come at a better time with rents and home prices continuing to skyrocket. The group broke ground on a 63-home community near West Hampden Avenue and South Lowell Boulevard on Thursday morning. Sheridan Square will feature duplexes and triplexes. They start at $168,000 for a two-bedroom unit. That’s less than half the median home price in Denver, which is nearly $400,000, according to the organization. A five-bedroom unit starts at $255,000.

    THORNTON, Colo. — A 3-year-old boy tumbled out of a second-story window on Tuesday morning to a pile of rocks below, the Thornton Police Department said. It was a scary morning for his mother — and a neighbor who said calls to 911 raised her anxiety even more after the child fell at Prairie Green Condominiums off 96th Avenue and Huron Street. “I heard a bump, very sharp,” Fe Dela Cruz Burns said in Spanish. Then, she said she heard a cry […]

    New system takes away cellphone access at comedy clubs, concerts

    DENVER — It’s a compulsive habit. Some consider it annoying. But others feel it’s essential. But prepare to give up constant access to your cellphone if you attend a comedy club in metro Denver. Anti-cellphone technology is answering the call of many celebrities. The world’s biggest global artist belts out beautiful vocals. But Adele can also belt out a verbal lashing. “Stop filming because I’m here in real life,” she told a fan midconcert in Verona, Italy. Musicians such as The Lumineers, […]

That’s the opinion of an expert who deals with elderly drivers and their families. Pat Livingston, 81, is accused of hitting Cole Sukle as he stood on the sidewalk and bike lane on July 13. She had another hit-and-run accident just months earlier. “It’s very, very sad,” said Tara of Broomfield. She didn’t want to […]

    CENTENNIAL, Colo. — Imagine million-dollar-plus homes moving in next to your neighborhood. It sounds like it would be a welcome development because property values would jump. But some neighbors of the Centennial project say it’s coming at too high a price: Their peace of mind. Neighbors in Greenwood South say construction of the new luxury homes at Marvella is getting really old. For two years, they say they’ve been dealing with the construction’s noise, smell and safety issues.

    Some Coloradans feel backlash of failed coup in Turkey

    AURORA, Colo. — We’re thousands of miles from the trouble in Turkey after a failed attempt to overthrow the government. But some Coloradans are feeling the backlash. They are supporters of Muslim cleric Fethullah Gulen, who is accused of spearheading the uprising. The Multicultural Mosaic Foundation is a nonprofit established by Turkish-Americans in Colorado in 2003. Their main source of inspiration is Gulen. Turkey President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Gulen and his supporters are terrorists. But Gulen’s supporters say that claim is laughable. […]
