    Erie family has no reservations about saving pups

The Erie Middle School teacher can't be mad at the 3-month-old mutt, Bella, for making a mess — she's too cute and accident clean-up has become part of Simms' daily routine. In November, Simms volunteered to coordinate Colorado adoptions for LightShine Canine, a nonprofit that rescues dogs from Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota.

    Second Story Garage: Aspen Hourglass

    Most people don't play guitar like Grayson Erhard does. That's because most people can't play guitar like he does. The guitarist for Fort Collins' Aspen Hourglass often uses a difficult two-hands-on-the-fretboard technique that Eddie Van Halen first popularized but which players such as Erhard have developed beyond pop-rock vulgarity.  Full Story
