Recovering the gloves, and ourselves

Have you noticed the mornings?  It’s only the end of August, but the mornings are slightly chilled, shadowed and sleepy. It feels like fall outside the window, which is no longer left open. The ceiling fan is silent. A blanket is needed. Summer clothes remain in the closet, exhausted from overuse. Time to wash the green jacket; try on that favorite sweater to see if it still fits.

It’s the same ‘cancer’

ISIS, Hamas — with or without beheadings — is the same ideology, the same enemy.

Mazel tov on 10 years of Judaism in Douglas County

When the northern Douglas County suburb of Highlands Ranch was established just over three decades ago, it grew like wildfire. Before we knew it, this masterplan community had an elaborate system of neighborhoods, schools, businesses, a hospital — nearly every amenity a community could want. Among those flocking to Highlands Ranch were Jews — a lot of Jews, mostly unaffiliated.

Todd Helton, a worthy role model

We’ll just have to forget for the moment that the Colorado Rockies have become the laughingstock of the Major Leagues, what with their league-wide worst record and wildly incompetent owners and front office. Actually, it will be nice to forget — in order to remember Todd Helton. He became the first Rocky to have his number (17) retired at a touching ceremony at Coors Field this week. This is perhaps the only good thing the Rockies’ owners have done in the past number of years. Helton was ...
