FORT COLLINS, Colo. - DNA tests have linked Philadelphia's Center City rapist to sexual assaults on seven young women since May in this college town in the foothills of the Rockies, police say. The link to the unsolved crimes in Colorado was the first time police have tied the Center City rapist to new crimes since August 1999. That 1999 rape ended a two-year, six-victim run of crime in Philadelphia that included the strangulation death of University of Pennsylvania graduate student Shannon Schieber, 23, in 1998.

DENVER - From the time he taught himself to read at 18 months, played the piano at age 3 and graduated from high school at 10, Brandenn Bremmer shocked and amazed people with the unfathomable talent of an academic and musical prodigy. But this past week, at 14, he did something else that those closest to him struggle to understand: He took his own life. "It was like he knew the time is here and he couldn't wait," said his mother, Patti Bremmer. "We know it was a spur-of-the-moment decision, that he had to do it then.

FORT COLLINS, Colo. - From his seat in the instrument-crammed cockpit, Dutch Snyder dips a bright-yellow wing and sizes up the billowing smoke on the forested ridge ahead. With his left hand, he makes minor adjustments to a computer before beginning his attack. Satisfied, he pushes the control stick forward, drops to treetop level and punches a button beneath his right thumb. Instantly, a red plume of chemical retardant is released from the belly of the single-engine plane and falls to earth, cutting off the wildfire's path and buying time for ground crews hiking into the backcountry.
