Council honors calendar artists City publication made up of works from students By Tom Munds

tmunds@ourcoloradonews.com Families and friends filled most of the seats Nov. 19 as the Englewood City Council honored the 15 young artists whose works were selected for next year’s calendar. “For each of the last 12 years, Englewood has used artwork created by students who go to school or live in Englewood for its calendars,” Mayor Randy Penn said. “Selecting the winners was a difficult task because there were so many good entries.” He said he wanted to thank the parents and the art teachers who helped make the calendar art contest such an annual success. The contest is popular and often draws

began their Black Friday sales at 8 p.m. Thursday. Apparently, the 8 p.m. start appealed to a lot of people, as parking was at a premium at the Englewood Walmart store and there was a steady parade of people headed through the doors just after 8 p.m. Nov. 22. Bryan Pollard and his wife Sue smiled as they pushed a shopping cart to their car. “It sure was crowded in there, but we found what we were looking for and saved

Sewer rates will rise 4 percent in each of the next three years for Englewood customers after the Englewood City Council unanimously approved the fee increases at the Nov. 19 meeting. For 2012, the typical residential customer paid $219 a year for sewer service. When the first of the three rate increases begins in 2013 it will raise the average annual rate to $227, and in 2014, the yearly rate will go up to $236.87. The final 4 percent raise in 2015 will raise the average annual fee to $246.35. “We presented the need for a rate increase to the Englewood Water and Sewer Board in order to cover operating expenses, maintain adequate reserves and make payments on bonds we plan to sell,” said Stu Fonda, utilities director. “After considering a number of possible rate increases, board members recommended enacting a 4 percent rate increase in 2013, 2014 and 2015.” Mayor Pro Tem Jim Woodward, a water and sewer board member, said there was no

Meeting to focus on school change Chenango site will become campus for alternative high By Tom Munds

tmunds@ourcoloradonews.com

Englewood School District is holding a town meeting at 6 p.m. Dec. 4 to discuss the project that will transform Englewood Middle School into a new home for Colorado’s Finest Alternative High School. The meeting is open to the public and will be held in the auditorium of Englewood Middle School, 300 W. Chenango St. The tentative agenda includes discussion of plans for the renovation of the inside of the building and changes to the outside of the building. Plans also are to detail the timelines for the project, construction hours, safety and parking. The work at the middle school building will be a $16 million project funded by $8 million from the voter-passed bond issue and an $8 million state grant. “This work at the middle school fits in with project underway to construct a seventh- through 12th-grade campus on the current Englewood High School site,” said Brian Ewert, school superintendent. “When the campus on the Englewood High School site is completed, the middle school students will move there and the makeover of the middle school building will create a new home of Colorado’s Finest Alternative High School.” Ewert said the outside of the building will be spruced up, but about the only major change is that the entrance will be moved from its present location on the north side of the school facing Chenango Street to the west side of the school facing School continues on Page 23

Cemetery care isn’t grave undertaking The first time Steve Engle ventured into the cemetery, the weeds and grass reached his shoulders. Thorny bushes grabbed at his clothes and twisted over the stones, muffling the past buried beneath. But as Engle uncovered first one stone marker, then another, unremembered stories began to whisper. He listened. And they touched his heart. “Simply because you’re dead doesn’t mean you should be forgotten,” said Engle, 64, as he gazed at the simple stone of Joseph Chmura, a Korean War veteran. “These stories need to be told. Those buried here need to be honored.” So Engle, a retired salesman who sees history’s footprints wherever he looks, has worked to do just that. It has become a labor of love and a way to chronicle the memoirs of the land around him. “We all need to have a relationship to the land,” he said, looking out from the graveyard into peaceful Mount Vernon Canyon. “There’s significance in the land.” The historic Rockland Community Church and Cemetery, built in 1879 and on the National Register of Historic Places, nestles against a quiet hillside minutes from the Lookout Mountain/ Buffalo Bill exit off I-70. Slightly larger than a football field, the cemetery and its small, simple clapboard church with white peeling paint and green shutters are tucked between two private homes. Engle, who lives minutes away in Genesee, first stumbled upon the cemetery in 2008 during a work day with a men’s group from Rockland Community Church, whose modern-day incarnation sits just down the road. It took weeks to mow the brush and clear away the thorns enough to begin to understand

the importance of the narratives and lives that time and neglect had camouflaged. That same year, Engle began studying toward a master’s degree in public history at the University of Colorado-Denver. His thesis is to accurately measure and map the cemetery. That means finding and documenting graves, identifying them and providing each with “a proper obituary.” So far, he has uncovered 144 graves — the first burial was in 1880, the most recent in 2010 — but he believes more are there, some maybe even under U.S. 40, which borders the top of the cemetery. “People got sick, people died, they didn’t know where to take the bodies,” he said of the early years. “They dropped them off here. The ground was frozen, you couldn’t dig a hole. They tagged ’em and dropped them off and went on their way.” Engle’s care has transformed the cemetery. Now you see the markers, once hidden under the brush, jutting from the ground beneath the Ponderosa pine. Simple white crosses. Gray and white marble headstones with precisely formed inscriptions. Red granite with names scratched on by hand. He has added American flags to the graves of all veterans — from the Spanish-American

War to the Korean War — and purple, yellow and blue plastic flowers to every marker. The graves are grouped by families, many of whose roots run deep in the area. More than a church cemetery, it is a community cemetery. All the while, Engle has listened. On this day, he sits on the edge of Charles Delaware Kemper’s grave and picks up a smooth, lined copper-colored rock. Kemper, in his early 30s according to the stone marker, died in 1994. Engle found the rock when he was clearing the grave. The marker reads: “You gave us love and laughter and taught us the meaning of hope and courage.” “I always kept the rock with it so it wouldn’t get away from here.” He turns it over in his hands. “It’s a very touching memorial, and it’s interesting that when you go to a cemetery you find a lot of reference to laughter.” Nearby stand a trio of white crosses, the only identification a small tag that says “Child of Bill Anderson.” “They all died at the same time. My guess is a diphtheria epidemic.” Engle walks toward three more crosses that say only “Stomp child.” “You reflect on life and how hard it can be, and how hard it can be for all of us, I guess.” The largest section belongs to the Ralston family, the area’s original pioneers. Lucien Hunter Ralston, a Civil War veteran and Army scout, brought his family from Kentucky in 1879, hoping the Colorado air would help his wife’s severe asthma condition. Engle stands by Ralston’s grave, which bears a U.S. and a state flag. “I put a Kentucky state flag out there for them.” Some markers share more than just names, birth and death dates. Engle stops before the grave of William Keiper, whose stone depicts a cabin,

elk, pines and coyotes. “What was important to this man was nature. He had his cabin out in the woods. He had a lot of game, the dove of peace, the howling of coyotes. … I’m sure he treasured that.” Much has been accomplished since Engle took on the job of caretaker. He’s on his fourth push lawn mower from Home Depot. He doesn’t use a riding mower because he would run over, and possibly destroy, the markers and relics he regularly discovers. But there is still much to do. Engle is hoping to use ground-penetrating radar to locate more graves and uncover the reasons for several ground depressions that pock the cemetery. Researching the lives of those buried is a consuming task. But he is happy to unlock the mysteries in this small piece of ground. He doesn’t plan on walking away any time soon. On a hot day, when he needs a shady spot to rest while he’s mowing, Engle usually heads over to World War II veteran Harry T. Lee’s grave under the juniper tree. “I’ll talk to him.” He chuckles. “You have a tendency to talk to them when you’re working around them.” But he also continues to listen. There are still so many stories left to tell. When completed, Steve Engle’s research will go to the Jefferson County Historical Archives. Anyone with information about the cemetery can reach Engle at empiresge@aol.com or 303-526-0893. Ann Macari Healey’s column about people, places and issues of everyday life appears every other week.

Inter-Faith seeks holiday sponsors About 200 needed to help families, seniors By Tom Munds

tmunds@ourcoloradonews.com Inter-Faith Community Services sent out an appeal for sponsors to provide Christmas gifts for needy families and seniors. “Our goal is to provide gifts to 650 families and seniors,” said Maria Pearson, Interfaith community relations director. “Right now, we need sponsors for 193 families and 24 seniors in order to reach our goal.” The annual Inter-Faith program is to help needy families and seniors have a nicer holiday by providing gifts to go under the Christmas tree. However, like so many charitable organizations, Inter-Faith has seen the requests for assistance steadily increase while, at the same time, donations and the number of sponsors for projects like the Christmas program have declined. But there is still time to help Inter-Faith reach its goal.

The system is simple. Each sponsor is provided with a profile of a family that includes name, age, clothing sizes, favorite colors and requested gifts. The sponsor also usually provides a supermarket gift certificate to enable the family to buy the ingredients to cook a holiday meal. “Typically, sponsors spend an average of $50 per family member,” Pearson said. “The sponsor can select the family to help. The families on our list range from a single parent with one child to a family that is the parents and seven or eight children.” The sponsors bring the gifts to the InterFaith office at 3370 S. Irving St. for distribution to the families. The goal is to have all the gifts distributed by Dec. 13. Pearson said people can provide cash donations if they are busy and do not have time to do all the shopping. She said the organization has some and the cash donations will be provided to super shoppers who enjoy helping the project by taking the list and hitting the stores looking for the best gifts for the money. For information about the holiday gift program or to be a sponsor, call Pearson at 303-789-0501.

ENGLEWOOD POLICE BRIEFS Two in trouble following fight

Both men involved in a fight could face charges of assault. About 4:20 p.m. Nov. 22, officers went to the 3500 block of South Pearl Street to investigate a resident’s report that two men were fighting and one of them had a knife. Officers found two men arguing. The 44-year-old involved in the argument had several wounds that appeared to be caused by a knife. He was taken to Swedish Medical Center, treated for his wounds and then given a summons for third-degree assault and disorderly conduct. The other combatant, 34, was arrested. He was treated for a broken hand apparently received in the fight and then taken to Arapahoe County Jail. He could face second-degree assault charges.

Stolen vehicle recovered

When an Englewood Police officer stopped a driver for not stopping at the stop sign at South Elati Street and West Hampden Place about 2 a.m. Nov. 27, he checked and found the vehicle had been reported stolen in Federal Heights. The officer arrested the 26-year-old driver for theft by receiving and several

traffic violations. The report states the driver was uncooperative. She was taken to the Englewood police station and placed in a holding cell. When she was removed from the cell to be taken to Arapahoe County Jail, officers found a small bundle of cocaine. The trip to the jail continued and now the woman also could face charges of possession of a Schedule II controlled substance.

Prescription charge possible

A King Soopers pharmacist called police when a 35-year-old man tried to fill a fraudulent prescription. The attempt happened about 8:45 p.m. Nov. 26 in the pharmacy of the King Soopers at 101 Englewood Parkway. The 35-year-old attempted to fill a prescription 60 Roxicodone 30 milligram tablets. The prescription was in a different name and the suspect had the Colorado identification card for that name. However, the pharmacist recognized the man because he was on an alert bulletin posted by King Soopers. Police arrested the suspect and he was taken to Arapahoe County Jail. He could face charges of fraud and deceit.

Developer presents Flood site plan Apartments could replace former middle school By Tom Munds

tmunds@ourcoloradonews.com Representatives of Bradbury Holding told the Englewood City Council that approval of their rezoning request was essential to their plans to redevelop the Flood Middle School property. The presentation was made during the Nov. 19 public hearing on the zoning request. The only other person to testify at the hearing was Bob Laughlin, president of the South Broadway Business Improvement District, who presented a letter from district representatives supporting the rezoning and the project. The city council listened to the public

hearing testimony and will vote on first reading of the rezoning request at the first meeting in January. If it passes with no major changes, it will come up for second and final reading at the second meeting in January. The rezoning proposal was presented by Brook Bell of the community development department. The developers then made their presentation. Edward Barsocchi, a principal partner in Bradbury Holding, said the team of traffic specialists, architects and landscape designers has been working on the project for almost a year. He added that city departments have worked with the developers to help resolve issues that arose. “This is basically the same project we

presented to the city council in April,” Barsocchi said. “However, we now are presenting the project in a lot more detail.” He said the first order of business is rezoning the site from the current three zoning designations to a planned unit development. While current zoning would allow up to 164 units, the developers want to demolish the middle school building and construct an apartment complex. The plan was to have a maximum of 350 units, but the developers agreed to the Planning and Zoning Commission recommendation to reduce the maximum number of apartments to 310. The design is for two buildings, one on the Flood site and one on the adjacent ball field. The concept is to design the buildings so all tenant parking is on the site. Wood Partners was selected as contractor for the project. He said it will be a green project with an effort to receive at least sil-

Sharpe tapped for two positions

Group, governor choose commissioner for different roles Staff report Arapahoe County Commissioner Nancy Sharpe has been appointed by Colorado Counties Inc. to serve on the statewide Elder Abuse Taskforce and appointed by Gov. John Hickenlooper to serve on the Colorado Executive Leadership Council on Child Welfare. The Elder Abuse Taskforce was established this year by Senate Bill 12-078 to address protection issues related to elderly, at-risk adults who may

be mistreated and exploited. “It was an honor to be selected to serve on both these committees,” said Sharpe, who repreSharpe sents District 2, which includes the cities of Centennial and Greenwood Village, a small portion of Aurora and unincorporated central Arapahoe County. An Arapahoe County press release said task-force recommendations may lead to the implementation of a mandatory reporting system by Sept. 1, 2013, subject to funding

availability. Sharpe also was appointed to the Colorado Executive Leadership Council on Child Welfare, which handles matters related to protecting vulnerable children and advancing the state’s child protective services system. The council advises the Department of Human Services regarding policy, budget and program issues. The council also looks at matters involving Statewide Child Protective Services, outof-home care and adoption, with a focus on prevention and early intervention to prevent entry and re-entry of children and families into the child protective services system.

ver LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) designation and possibly gold designation. Plans are for there to be a number of amenities, including a pool, landscaped courtyards, a fitness center, a cyber cafe and a bicycle shop. Traffic was a subject of discussion. Billy Harris explained the traffic study his company conducted, with the conclusion that no improvements are needed to surrounding intersections to efficiently handle the traffic generated by the project There was a question about the timeline for the project. Barsocchi said, if the rezoning is approved in January, the demolition of the Flood building should begin in the first quarter of 2013 and should take 90 to 120 days. It is estimated it will take about 18 months to complete the project, with the first tenants moving into apartments in the summer of 2014.

OPINIONS / YOURS AND OURS

An important day in the season of giving At this time of year, you probably do not need to be reminded of the adage “it’s better to give than to receive.” Chances are, you’ve already made some headway on your holiday shopping list, perhaps starting on Black Friday, or even on Thanksgiving night. The spirit of giving is what propels these treks through malls and big-box stores. You’re buying gifts for loved ones and, as a bonus, helping to stimulate the economy. But have you checked your list twice? For those of you in a financial position to do so, we encourage you to add another name (or two) to that list — specifically that of your favorite nonprofit organization. Con-

OUR VIEW veniently, there is a day set aside for doing this. Thankfully, you won’t have to wait in any lines. Colorado Gives Day is Dec. 4. Created in 2010 by Arvada-based Community First Foundation with the financial support of FirstBank, the aim is to “increase philanthropy in Colorado through online giving.” Touted as “24 hours to give where you live,” you can donate to your favorite nonprofits

at givingfirst.org/cogivesday. Last year, $12.8 million was distributed to 928 nonprofits, according to the Colorado Gives Day 2011 Giving Report, which can be found on the website. That dollar amount was a 46 percent increase over the inaugural event in 2010. More than $2.5 million was donated last year between Arapahoe and Douglas counties, places that are home to countless deserving nonprofits. The average donation last year was $237, but donations as small as $10 are accepted. A full 100 percent goes to the charities. And yes, your donation is tax-deductible. The causes your money can help are

numerous, with more than 1,000 organizations participating. Eligible nonprofits on the list include those dedicated to helping children, animals and the environment; those looking to fight various illnesses; those looking to enrich our communities through promoting the arts; and many, many more causes. You can search through the list of nonprofits on the website. We believe you’ll find Colorado Gives Day to be as easy and rewarding a way to give as you’ll find this holiday season. For more information, go to givingfirst. org/cogivesday, call 720-898-5900 or email givingfirst@communityfirstfoundation.org.

Journey isn’t all about destination

No, really, you shouldn’t have I imagine you are wondering what to get me for the upcoming holiday. You are understandably grateful for a year’s worth of humor and insight. We show our gratitude by buying something for someone they would never want, but as the saying goes, “It’s the thought that counts.” That’s what I want you to get me: the thought. No actual objects. If it is the thought that counts, you could get someone anything, oatmeal on a stick, lozenges, an X-Acto knife that didn’t come with a blade, and just say, “After all, it’s the thought that counts.” Most people can’t give the right gift to save their souls. That’s why the gift card is a multi-billion-dollar idea. Do you know anyone who looks a gift horse in the mouth? Well, now you know one more: me. If I were to open a gift, let’s say a polyester vest or season one of “Breaking Amish,” I would hand it right back, with my fingers on my nose. We like to make lists at this time of year: Best Film, Best Song, Best Ex-CIA Director Scandal. I have come up with a list of things I don’t want you to get for me. That should streamline your shopping by hours. I do not want a gefilte fish. First of all, there is no such thing. It’s more like a fish pudding. It’s boned carp or pike and it’s ground up into a virtual paste and made into quenelles, or fish balls. No thank you. In fact. Let me save you a lot of trouble. I don’t want balls of any kind. Don’t get me anything that you talk into. Or listen to. If you get me an iPhone, don’t bother me anymore. Consider our bridge burned. It was probably a primitive suspension bridge to begin with. No magazine subscriptions, joke singing fish, or any kind of a novelty gift. It won’t pass “go,” it will go directly into the trash. One year my 40-something sister showed up with a Cabbage Patch Kid. Which she put in my mother’s antique, child’s rocking chair. My sister put a doll-sized quilt over the doll’s legs. It made me sick. I assume you know that malls atomize the atmosphere in all common areas at this

time of year with a scent that causes you to spend money recklessly. It’s a combination of a secret ingredient and the smell of scalloped potatoes. It can linger in the body for days, and it might explain why people actually line up on Black Friday to buy something with George Foreman’s name on it. I have been looking a gift horse in the mouth since I was a kid. A relative bought me a figurine of a horse. I had no interest in figurines of anything, and I had no interest in horses. The gift was a double negative. But I had been taught to be grateful. This was a mistake. I admired the horse and held it to the light. Noting my delight, the relative would later buy me half a dozen figurines of horses for special occasions. Then I put my foot down. The expression, “Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth,” comes from teeth. A horse’s teeth appear to become longer with age (you’ve heard “long in the tooth”) because their gums recede, exposing more tooth. If you were given a horse and inspected the teeth, it was considered ungrateful. Hell, yes! I rarely receive gifts anymore. Which is fine with me. Unless you can give me the keys to a Porsche, don’t bother. Objects will not make my life better, or any different. They just need to be dusted. I would take brutally strong coffee. Certain dog treats. The best gifts are good memories. Craig Marshall Smith is an artist, educator and Highlands Ranch resident. He can be reached at craigmarshallsmith@comcast. net

WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU

If you would like to share your opinion, go to www.ourcoloradonews.com or write a letter to the editor. Please send letters to letters@ourcoloradonews.com.

“Are we there yet?” “How much farther do we have to go?” “Can you please go faster?” Anyone who has taken a long trip or car ride with anxious children or impatient adults has heard these questions before, and probably similar questions, comments, or complaints many times over. It seems that many people want to arrive at their destination without actually going through the journey. It’s like saying we want to win without playing the game. Where is the fun in that? Whether they suffer from a need for instant gratification or have a belief in teleportation like “Beam me up Scotty,” they are missing everything that makes arriving at our destination worth the journey and all of the experiences that it took to get us there. Could you imagine if the coin toss in a football game actually decided the outcome? The players returning to the locker room, high-fiving each other, and passionately talking about the way the referee flipped the coin, how it bounced on the turf, and how they were racked with nerves and excitement waiting for the heads or tails outcome. That’s not how it works, right? They want to go back to the locker room a little battered and bruised, muddy and sweaty, and talk about the amazing plays, big hits, and spirit of the game. They want to share in their experience the journey. Would we really buy a season pass or lift ticket so that we could take the chairlift up and then immediately ride it back down? No way. We want to feel the pull of gravity, the steepness of the hill, the snow under our feet as we ski or snowboard down the mountain. We want to set our edges, make sweeping turns, fly through the powder, and maybe take in a few bumps along the way. We want the journey of getting to the

bottom so that we can get back on the lift and share the stories of our last run with our friends on the chairlift and everyone who will listen at après ski at the end of the day. While we are on our journey it is also important that we will fail sometimes, we will have setbacks, and we will even lose sometimes. If I stick with the football analogy there hasn’t been an undefeated Super Bowl winner since 1972. But 40 teams have won the championship since then, all with losses on their record. And how many of us have caught an edge in the middle of great ski run and wiped out? So on our journey and as we grow we must be willing to fail, just as long as we learn from the setback and keep moving in the direction of our destination. Lastly, we need to have that destination clearly in our hearts and mind, because as we move towards our ultimate goal, we will reach mini-destinations along the way. It is kind of like aiming for the moon and hitting a star. I would love to hear all about your journey and your destination at gotonorton@ gmail.com and I hope it will be a better than good week for each of you.

Holiday Parade to step off Dec. 1

lBy Tom Munds -t m u n d s @ o u rc o l o r a d o

news.com

e - Strike up the band, it’s time for the Englewood -Holiday Parade. - The parade entries will assemble on South Acoma nStreet and step off west on dEnglewood Parkway on Dec. 1 at 10 a.m. e “We have a few new enetries this year,” Rosemanrie Cabral said. “We have some new floats and sevneral “movie” cars like the sBatmobile, and some cosltumed “Star Wars” characsters will join us. The parade gwill wind up with Santa riding on the antique fire -truck. We’ll just hope for @good weather so we can nhave a good time.” The parade ends at the Englewood Civic Center, swhere a group will place a -wreath at the Purple Heart fMemorial located on the north side of the plaza’s circular driveway. Provided the weather is good, the driveway will be blocked off so the movie cars can be put on display. Then, the focus will shift to the amphitheater where school groups will perform. Thanks to an effort spearheaded by the Greater Englewood Chamber of Commerce, the Englewood Holiday Parade was reborn in 2010, bringing back a holiday tradition that had been an annual community event for about 40 years. The idea of resurrecting the Englewood parade was suggested by Cabral, a chamber board member. She said the year she moved her business, Cuttin’ Loose, into Englewood, the city had a lot of great stuff in mid-December like Santa arriving by light rail, the tree-lighting ceremony

Bishop Elementary School students braved the cold and snow to march in last year’s Englewood Holiday Parade. File photo and fireworks from the city hall roof. “I told all my customers about how much fun it was, then last year, they just threw a switch,” she said “I thought we should do more than that.” The chamber adopted the suggestion, but it required cooperation from the city and businesses. There are printed hints of a holiday parade when Englewood became a city in 1903, but the first newspaper report about a parade was published in 1909. History indicated Englewood’s parade would be

an annual event for a few years, there would be a few non-parade years, and then the parades would resume. There was a sizable parade as part of the first Englewood Days held on Sept. 12, 1930, and there was a very special parade down Broadway that had been painted gold for the occasion on Englewood’s Golden Jubilee in 1953. The parade that reappeared in 1953 became associated with a free pancake breakfast and was held annually until about 1960. The most recent annual

Englewood Parade was started by the Cinderella City Merchants Association in the late 1960s. The late November event was held to bring Santa to the mall. In the early 1970s, the merchants association announced they could no longer financially support the parade. The city stepped in and took over planning and putting on the parade. There was talk at the city of no longer having a parade in 1995, but there was a parade that year. The city’s concern was financial, as reports indicated staff time and other expenses added up to more than $25,000 a year. Starting that year there was an appeal for support from residents and the business community. There were volunteers and some support, but the city was still paying most of the costs to put on the parade. There was a parade in 2003 but city officials said there wouldn’t be a parade in 2004 if there wasn’t major support for the project, and one wasn’t held until 2010.

Station to get touch of whimsy Sculptor’s work installed in Utah By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com The grand opening of the light-rail station in Provo, Utah, on Dec. 10 will be more festive because of Littleton sculptor Don Mitchell’s art. “Portal to another Place,” includes a clock for riders and measures 18 feet tall. “Greeters” is 12 feet tall and rests at the opposite end of the platform. Both are in Mitchell’s signature whimsical style, brightly painted. He won the commission in competition with about 400 artists. “At my age, (74) I’m delighted when I win one,” he said. He has work in Littleton — “Skip to My Lou” at Gallup Park; at the South Suburban Ice Rink; in Lakewood, Westminster, Longmont, Arvada, Boulder, Thornton, Vail, Aurora, Fort Collins and at locations across the country. He says the project has been under way for three years since he won the commission: paid 50 percent by the Utah Transit Authority, 25 percent by the city of Provo

and 25 percent by private donors. “I made them last summer and shipped them to Provo, where they were put in storage” until the station was completed, he said. A Utah clock expert was needed to get the electronic clock installed on “Portal to Another Place,” where it’s lighted at night. “It took 180 feet of wire and the man had to use climbing gear to install it.” How do you ship an 18-foot-tall metal sculpture? Mitchell said that after they were powder-coated (similar to an auto finish), a company in Commerce City picks them up, wraps them and carries them on a flatbed to the destination. Now he is painting a smaller piece for NCM, a high-end purse company, for display during the huge upcoming Art Basil show in Miami. Littleton residents may recall his oneman exhibit at the Littleton Museum in summer 2008, when the gallery was filled with fanciful creations. Mitchell studied biology and philosophy in college and then completed a four-year apprenticeship in metal fabrication in the experimental engineering group at General Motors, which led to a career in engineering, manufacturing and management of products with GM and similar companies.

“Greeters” was installed by Littleton sculptor Don Mitchell in Provo, Utah. Courtesy photo It prepared him for a second career as artist and sculptor, which continues today — creating art that makes people smile.

Talk a little NBA b-ball while sidling up to Denver Nuggets Head Coach George Karl during a charity breakfast from 7 to 8:30 a.m. Dec. 4 at Coohills, 1400 Wewatta St. Space is limited, so RSVPs are requested by Nov. 30 to dbravo@progressivehealthcenter.org or by calling 303-788-9399.

The Cancer Care Initiative helps with patient navigation, pain management, survivorship and integrative medicine. Presented by Community First Foundation and FirstBank, Colorado Gives Day asks you to give to your favorite charities through the website www.GivingFirst.org, an online giving resource featuring every nonprofit participating in Colorado Gives Day. One hundred percent of your donation will come to the charity you choose. When you give online anytime on Dec. 4, the value of your donation will be increased by the FirstBank Incentive Fund. Donate online at www.givingfirst.org/ progressivehealthcenter anytime during the 24-hour period of Dec. 4 to “Give Where You Live.”

Taxi turkeys

For the 20th year in a row, Metro Taxi drivers volunteered to bring meals to residents in need by delivering food from the legendary Daddy Bruce Randolph Thanksgiving program. Metro Taxi Denver drivers assisted the Epworth Foundation’s annual Denver Feed a Family Thanksgiving program by delivering more than 1,800 food baskets to Denver residents unable to leave their homes. At midnight prior to our traditional turkey day, three city blocks surrounding Epworth United Methodist Church, 3401 High St., closed to set up a giant assembly line for Thanksgiving food baskets. After hundreds of volunteers sorted and packed the food that Walmart had donated and hauled in, volunteer drivers from Metro Taxi began delivering food baskets to the elderly and shut-ins. The drivers navigated more than 120 routes and made more than 1,800 deliveries to needy residents in northeast Denver who would otherwise not have had access to the donations. “This is not a business decision for us, this is simply the right thing for us to do and we are so proud of our drivers who step up to help their neighbors,” Metro Taxi Denver Operations Manager Bobby McBride said. “We have people on staff here who have been helping feed families through the Daddy Bruce Thanksgiving program for 20 Parker continues on Page 18

Be ready to move quickly you don’t want to miss out Owner/Broker Associate Carriage House Properties, LLC Cell: 303-884-0284 Office: 303-680-1339 www.wangersellshomes.com wendy@wangersellshomes.com

good. I also can help sellers get their home ready for sale by staging and knowing what buyers are looking for when they visit a home they might want to purchase. What is the most challenging part of what you do? The most challenging part of the business today is finding a good quality home for sale. That is one of the reasons why I build is to fill that void.

Where were you born? Minneapolis Minnesota How long have you lived in the area? I moved to Colorado 41 years ago. I grew up in Aurora, went to the University of Northern Colorado and currently live in Denver with my Husband, Gary of 17 years. What do you like most about it? I love living in Colorado, it is fantastic to see the season change. I am inspired by how active our state is, people are out running, riding their bikes and walking their dogs, no matter what the temperature is outside. I also like the fact that you can golf almost all year round. How long have you worked in Real Estate? I have been selling Real Estate in the Denver Metro and surrounding areas for more than 16 years. What is your specialty and what does that mean for the people you work with? I feel I bring many great aspects to buyers and sellers. Not only do I sell Real Estate but, I also have my own homebuilding company with my husband, it is called Stoneridge Homes

or be bid out.

What is the most unusual thing you’ve encountered while working in Real Estate? I always knock, ring the doorbell and say hello really loud, when entering a home. You never know whom you might find in the shower - as I experienced early on in my career.

Photos left to right: Golfing with Gary; Wendy Wanger

What do you most enjoy doing when you’re not working? I love cooking with Gary. We always have a large crowd for Thanksgiving and have great pleasure sharing with them, what we are thankful for in the past year. I also, love to play golf with my friends and enjoy being outside. I enjoy traveling to beautiful places. What is one tip you have for someone looking to sell a house? Make sure your home is sell ready. It is so important to make a great first impression. Pack up your nick- knacks, clean out your closets and leave the lights on. Also, make sure your home is priced right. The last thing you want to do is overprice it. Most buyers will visit your home in the first 2-3 weeks it is on the market. You don’t want to lose them. What is one tip you have for someone looking to buy a house? Patience, inventory is very low

A

nyone purchasing a home needs to have it inspected, not only by a general home inspector, but in many cases by a professional engineer, mold inspector, radon tester, or any other specialists trained to evaluate any other potential problem. Sellers, whether using a real estate agent to list their homes, or whether they are handling the sale themselves, are wise to protect themselves by filling out in detail the Seller’s Property Disclosures for residential properties sanctioned by the Colorado Division of Real Estate. This form, which can be down-

ISCLOSURES

loaded from the division’s website, has become more detailed every year. For the most part it protects both the buyer and the seller from any surprises. Even so, certain rules regarding disclosures need to be followed if the seller wants to avoid being sued for failure to disclose known problems with the property. As a general rule, the buyer and the inspector the buyer hires are expected to note problems that are obvious, known as patent defects, such as obvious cracks on the basement floor. The problem comes in when there are latent defects, or defects that are not obvious that the seller failed to disclose, such as past water problems, leaks, hidden mold, or basement cracks which are covered up by carpeting. Problems can arise when the seller discloses, or fails to disclose, something that may or may not affect a potential buyer’s decision on whether to purchase the property. For example, if one of the parties that lived in the home committed suicide, or died of cancer, or was murdered, or abused his or her children. These and similar issues will effect some purchasers’ decision to buy, but not others, because they are subjective, and really have noth-

ing to do with the condition of the house. Colorado law, specifically C.R.S. 38-35.5-101, protects a real estate broker who does not make these disclosures from lawsuits, but does not protect the seller. Disclosing these matters might be prudent for a seller to avoid problems down the line with buyers sensitive to those and similar situations that don’t affect the physical condition of the house but could have psychological effects on certain buyers. Another tricky area is when a home inspector claims the home has a structural problem and the buyer terminates the contract based on that finding. Assume that the seller

then hires a professional engineer who finds there are no structural problems and that the house is structurally sound. Should the home inspector’s opinion be conveyed to subsequent potential buyers or not? One of the items on the Colorado Division of Real Estate’s website questionnaire is “Written reports of any building, site, roofing, soils, or engineering investigations or studies of the property”. This suggests that any such condition needs to be reported, even if overridden by a more competent professional, since a professional engineer is in a better position than a home inspector to determine the structural soundness

of a home. Tricky, but probably the first report should be disclosed and then followed up by the report of the professional engineer. Bear in mind that the only matters that need to be disclosed are those within the knowledge of the seller at the time he or she is preparing the disclosure statement.

Painter is man of many words Painter Craig Marshall Smith has an exhibition on display at the Museum of Outdoor Arts, Englewood Civic Center Atrium gallery, through March 2. Accompanying them, at the top of the stairs, is his painting of a larger-than-life horse, “Rodger,” named after his late Metropolitan State colleague Rodger Lang, which is in the MOA permanent collection. A Highlands Ranch resident (and regular columnist for our papers), Smith’s work is described as abstract expressionist and combines architectural draftsmanship and Asian-influenced calligraphy. His work is found in private and museum collections and his mural of Canada geese fills a wall at Bemis Library in Littleton. The MOA is on the second level of the Englewood Civic Center, 1000 Englewood Parkway. Admission is free.

Town Hall Arts Center hosts beloved musical ‘Sound of Music’ charms audiences By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com From the first note, Town Hall’s charming production of “The Sound of Music” captures the spirit of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s musical masterpiece, a part of our national cultural fabric since it opened on Broadway in 1959 with the beloved Mary Martin as Maria. That first note is “Preludium” by the nuns at Nonnberg Abbey, who manage lovely harmony, then break into a discussion about how to deal with the spirited novice Maria — who soon appears on the mountainside singing the namesake song. Rebekah Ortiz brings a clear voice and joyful stage presence as a convincing Maria. Music director Donna Debreceni writes: “As many times as I’ve had the pleasure of doing “Sound of Music,” I still

marvel at how truly amazing this score is. … Every instrument has something to say … .” Director Robert Wells cast the show with accomplished singers, and Kelly Kates’ choreography fits the small Town Hall stage space smoothly. Tina Anderson’s stage design works from a mountain landscape ever-present in the background and a stone patio area, which is converted with occasional set pieces. Keegan Flaugh portrays the conflicted Capt. Von Trapp and Ryan Howard returns to Town Hall as his friend Max Detweiler. Kids who aren’t familiar with the history of the time might benefit from a short brush-up about the Nazi rise to power before they attend. The opening night audience was obviously familiar with every note and anticipated each song, greeting them with early applause at times, unfortunately. This show, and the film version which appears frequently with “sing-along” invitations, will continue to draw audiences as a new generation discovers its appeal. Based on a memoir by the Baroness Trapp, the book by

IF YOU GO “The Sound of Music” plays through Dec. 30 at Town Hall Arts Center, 2450 W. Main St., Littleton. Performances: 7:30 p.m. Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays; 2 p.m. on Saturdays Dec. 8, 22, 29; 2 p.m. Sundays, plus 6:30 p.m. on Dec. 6.

Howard Lindsay and Russell Crouse developed into a tale with perhaps more romantic features than the original facts contained, but one that appeals year after year to repeat and new audiences. It makes an ideal family-oriented holiday show, without inclusion of that overworked gentleman in the red suit or the music that is repeated over and over … Those who plan on attending will want to reserve tickets in advance. A number of performances are already sold out, according to the box office.

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com Running Meter Press was founded last year by writer Gary Reilly’s friends Mike Keefe and Mark Stevens to publish a series of comic novels — 11 in all — about the adventures and misadventures of Denver cabbie Brendan Murphy, written by the late Reilly, whose “Asphalt Warrior” went straight to Denver’s best-seller list last June. Murph’s cab seemed to draw elements for a story to its likable, easygoing driver, who never intended to get involved in the lives of his fares. Reilly’s short story “The Biography Man” won the Pushcart Prize in 1977 and he had written two Vietnam-era novels, science fiction, noir thrillers and more. He gave his friends permission to publish the Murph books before he died in 2011, when his interest in finding a publisher resurfaced. Denver City Auditor Dennis Gallagher, who also knew Reilly, will introduce and read from the next title, “Ticket to Hollywood,” at 7:30 p.m. Dec. 3 at the Tattered Cover LoDo, 1628 16th St., Denver. Gallagher’s brother Tim was a friend of Reilly’s from high school. In the new novel, a young woman on her way to see the movie “The Great Gatsby” leaves her purse in Murph’s cab and goes missing. Police encounters and Hollywood experiences follow for Murph. Keefe, the recently retired Pulitzer Prizewinning political cartoonist with a 36-year career at the Denver Post, said that Big Earth Publishing in Boulder added Running

Bowled over

“Ticket to Hollywood” is by Gary Reilly, the late author of “Asphalt Warrior.” Courtesy image Meter as an imprint, and a national campaign will be launched to sell the books, with all proceeds going to Reilly’s partner, Sherry Peterson. Keefe met Reilly in a film class at the University of Colorado-Denver in 1977, about the time he “went underground for three decades to work on his prose and refine his craft.” “Ticket to Hollywood” and “Asphalt Warrior” are published in trade paperback ($14.95) and e-book format and are in the collections of area libraries.

After hurdling numerous stumbling blocks, Punch Bowl Social, the much-anticipated diner and bowling alley from Denver restaurateur Robert Thompson, has finally opened at First Avenue and Broadway in the former Big Lots building. The opening night event included live music by The Epilogues, with the ticket take going to Big Brothers-Big Sisters of Colorado. Tickets were purchased at www.punchbowlsocial.com for $15 to cover the charity donation and entertainment. “We are proud to bring PBS to the Baker District and launch it in conjunction with such a worthy charity as Big Brothers and Big Sisters,” Thompson said. The 24,000-square-foot bar, diner, bowling alley and coffeehouse also includes pingpong, marbles, deck-shuffle, shuffleboard, darts, pinball, foosball, pool tables, board games and a wall of throwback video games. Punch Bowl is open daily starting at 6 a.m. for the coffee shop, breakfast served from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m., lunch and dinner 11

A perfect ending

Kent Denver wins first football title since 1991

By Daniel P. Johnson

ENGLEWOOD - Like a lot of teams in prep and college football, Kent Denver awards its players pride stickers for achieving big plays on the field. Senior Brannon Jones, a twoway starter for the top-ranked Sun Devils, creatively arranged his to spell out BAM across the front of his helmet. What a fitting word for a player that turned himself into a battering ram in the fourth quarter of the Class 2A state championship game Nov. 24 against No. 7 Platte Valley. With the unbeaten Sun Devils down 17-14 with just 6 minutes, 53 seconds to play in the game, Jones took a handoff from Kent’s own 33-yard line, busted through the line of scrimmage, brushed off four would-be tacklers and rumbled into the end zone to give his team a 21-17 lead. Jones tacked on an insurance touchdown with 2:03 to play as the Sun Devils won their

first state championship since 1991 with a hard-fought 28-17 victory over the Broncos at a jam-packed Justin DeSorrento Memorial Field. “It was a lot of will and determination,” said Jones of his game-winning touchdown. “It was the offensive line and everyone buckling down, too, and saying that we needed to play tougher than we are. That break came right when we needed it.” For Jones, one of a handful of seniors that was part of the Kent Denver team that lost in the state final four years ago, ending his prep career with a state championship game - and victory - on the team’s home field was rewarding. “This is amazing,” Jones said. “To get back (to the state championship), win it and go undefeated is amazing and more than I could’ve asked for or dreamed.” Platte Valley (10-3) looked poised to ruin the Kent Denver (13-0) victory party. With quarterback Logan Sitzman doing his best Tim Tebow impersonation, the Broncos rallied from an early 14-3 hole to take a 1714 with 21 seconds to play in the second quarter on a 5-yard touchdown run by Sitzman. The Broncos, though, were

to Pettyjohn. Matarazzo threw a 22-yard touchdown pass to Brian Boatman to increase the lead to 14-3. An interception by Tom Bluher off a tip by Trevon Hamlet set the Sun Devils up with a first-and-goal from the Platte Valley 5-yard line, but the Sun Devils were unable to put any points on the board and the Broncos responded with 14 unanswered points to take the lead. “We knew this was going to be a tough game,” Kent Denver coach Scott Yates said. “We have a bunch of kids with great character, and they weren’t going to give up. It’s a testament to the young men on this team and the determination they had … they’re fighters and they wanted to finish.”

The Eagles, winners of 11 straight games, stand just 60 minutes away from their firstever 5A state title, and fourth-straight overall. They’ve won all four of their playoffs games by 30-plus points, three by more than 40. THEY SAID IT “The amount of time and effort we’ve put in and the preparation; we couldn’t ask for better coaches. They prepare us beyond belief and it’s so nice to have all of that pay off and you’re finally going to state.” Valor Christian quarterback Luke Del Rio

Boys hoops: Warriors look to rebuild Arapahoe returns just one starter from last year’s state runners-up team By Daniel P. Johnson

djohnson@ourcoloradonews.com Arapahoe’s boys basketball team has enjoyed great success the past three years. They’ve won three straight Class 5A Centennial League titles. In the last two years, they’ve won 50 games (25 each season which is a school record) and lost just five games, while reaching two state Final Fours. Last year, they lost in the 5A title game in overtime to Chaparral. Coach Dan Snyder, who is in his seventh year at Arapahoe, knows that while this year’s team may only return one starter from a season ago, he does have a handful of players with varsity experience. “It will be difficult to match the past two years, but we expect to have a competitive team,” said Snyder, who has a record of 12629 at Arapahoe. “We return only one player who was a full-time starter last year, but we have a number of players who have some varsity experience. We have good size and shoot the ball pretty well.” Taven Sparks, a 6-foot-4 guard, fresh off of quarterbacking the football team to an appearance in the 5A state quarterfinals, is the Warriors’ lone returning starter. Backup point guard Thomas Trotman and parttime starter at forward, 6-foot-5 Evan Walsh provide that experience Snyder referenced. Mitch Albyn (6-foot-5 senior) and Matt Glasscock (6-foot-5 senior) are two athletic bigs that have shown outside range. Brendan Till is a 6-foot-2 junior guard that will extend the defense with his 3-point shooting. Snyder sees the race for the Centennial

League title being a competitive one. “This should be a banner year for the Centennial League,” Snyder said. “I think most people would say that our league will be the strongest league in the state this year.” Cherry Creek, which finished second to Arapahoe in the Centennial League a year ago with an 11-3 mark (18-8 overall), is led once again by coach Mike Brookhardt. The Bruins, who reached the Sweet 16 last season, are “an inexperienced team with great potential,” according to their coach. Sam Stoveall, a senior, is the team’s best shooter. Six-foot-seven Graham Pingree will pack a punch on the post and sophomore Will Bower is the team’s best athlete. In the Continental League, Regis Jesuit finished last season with a perfect 11-0 mark in league play (20-4 overall) and earned one of the four number one seeds in the 32-team 5A state field. The Raiders, however, were upset in the second round by Poudre, 57-54. Coach Ken Shaw, whose teams have compiled a staggering 43-1 record in Continental League play the last four years, thinks his team is capable of making a deep run in the playoffs. Josh Perkins, a 6-foot-3 junior point guard, leads the way for Regis Jesuit. Last year, Perkins averaged 18.6 points, 5.2 assists and shot 56 percent from the field and 82 percent from the free-throw line. He was an All-State selection and also participated in The Show All-Star Game, which features the best players in the state. Senior guard Eric Stemper, junior forward Devin Kadillak, junior forward Elijah Sanford and sophomore guard Bryan Staerkel are solid all-around players that Shaw says will contribute to the team this season. Littleton finished last season with a 2-9 league record and 5-18 overall, while Heritage was 3-8 in league play, 8-15 overall.

File photo In Class 4A, Valor Christian reached the Final Four a year ago, and according to its coach, Ronnie DeGray, they have some unfinished business to attend to this season. The Eagles, 23-3 a season ago, lost 70-59 to eventual champion Lewis-Palmer in the semifinals. Chase Foster, a 6-foot-4 junior was a second team All-State selection a year ago. He returns, along with classmate, Christian

McCaffrey. McCaffrey was a first team AllContinental League selection. Marcus Wilson and Garrett Baggett also return to the Valor Christian lineup. In Class 3A, Kent Denver was 14-12 a year ago with a 4-5 record in Metro League play. They advanced to the second round of the 3A state tournament, where they were eliminated by Faith Christian.

Girls hoops: Centennial figures to be a battle Cherry Creek, Arapahoe look to contend for league title By Daniel P. Johnson

djohnson@ourcoloradonews.com There will be a lot of familiar faces returning to the Class 5A Centennial League in girls basketball this season. As such, Cherry Creek coach Chris Curneen suspects the same teams that finished at the top of the league standings will be vying for the league title in 2012-13. “It should be a three-way battle for the league title,” said Curneen, whose Bruins squad finished third in the Centennial League last year with a 10-4 record, 14-11 overall. “The league didn’t graduate many, so (the league) should be one of the best leagues this year.” Cherry Creek brings back a pair of first team all-Centennial League players in 6-foot senior, Megan Rohrer and 5-foot-1o junior, Mikaela Eppard. Kate O’Brien, Molly Rohrer and Brittney Roy will all see significant playing time. “We’re hoping for a final four appearance,” said Curneen, whose team lost in the second round of state last year. Arapahoe and Grandview finished tied atop the league standings with 13-1 records last year. The Warriors (196) overall, lost by a point (44-43) to ThunderRidge in the round of 16. With nine seniors on the rosters, depth is not an issue for Arapahoe. In the Continental League, Regis Jesuit looks to reload after losing four key players to graduation from last year’s team that reached the Final Four. The Raiders do have a pair of dynamic juniors that coach Carl Mattei figures should lead the way in 2012-13.

Justine Hall, a first team All-Continental League player who averaged 13.3 points per game, is back, as is forward Diani Akigbogun, who averaged 10.3 points and 6.4 rebounds and was second team All-Continental League selection. Jordan Molyneaux (6-foot-4 junior), Anna Ptasinski (5foot-10 junior who returns from an ACL injury), Kesli Lidge and Jessica Lewis are all players Mattei identified as being integral to the team’s success. Heritage finished last season with an 8-3 mark in Continental League play (18-7 overall) and reached the second round of the state tournament. Littleton was 2-9 in league, 7-17 overall. In Class 4A, Valor Christian coach Sherryl Klosterman returns 10 players from last year’s team, and is hoping that depth is a source of strength for the Eagles this season. “We are an experienced and deep team with eight seniors and two returning sophomore starters,” Klosterman said. “Our strength will be our versatility, as we have several players who can play multiple positions, creating mismatch issues for our opponents. Defensive pressure and intensity will be our key to success this season.” Caroline Bryan, a 5-foot-10 sophomore who averaged 14 points and nine rebounds (honorable mention All-State), returns, as does 5-foot-11 sophomore Kendall Bradbury, who scored 12 points and grabbed eight rebounds a game. Kara Foley (nine points, four rebounds) and Annalise Pequette (seven points, four rebounds) are other key returning players for Valor Christian, which finished 2011-12 with a 19-5 record and lost in the second round of the 4A state tournament. In Class 3A, St. Mary’s Academy was 10-11 overall, with a 4-6 mark in Metro League play. Kent Denver was 2-16 with a 2-8 league mark.

It’s a rebuilding season for the Pirate boys New basketball coach teaching new system to team of young players

Coach Dave Chapman’s assessment of the coming season is the Englewood High School boys basketball team will be building a program starting from scratch. “All last year’s varsity players graduated in June, I am a new coach,” Chapman said. “This year, we don’t have any tall players and all our guys have the skills to play guard so we will use a style of play that pushes the ball up the court quickly on offense and plays aggressive defense.” The team saw its first action against an opponent in the Nov. 20 scrimmage against Skyline, a team they are likely to see again as they open the season Dec. 5 on the road at the Skyline Tournament. The first home game of the year will be Dec. 11 against Ridgeview Academy. Home games are triple headers with the freshman game starting at 4 p.m., the junior varsity game at 5:30 and the varsity tipoff about 7:15. Admission is $5 for adults and $3 for students with school identification and a ticket is good for all three games. Englewood’s players know Chapman because he has been the assistant varsity coach and head JV coach for several years. Chapman was then selected to fill the head coaching vacancy when former head coach Stu -Howard retired at the end of last school year. “We knew this season would be a challenge with no returning varasity starters which meant we had to echange the way we play basketball,” the new coach said. “The last three years, Englewood had two big men in ethe middle and worked the ball into their post players. We don’t have any tall players this season so we will use a system built around the strengths of our current players. We have pretty good quickness and the guys handle the ball well. So, we’ll try to push the

Chapman has the Pirates play a shortened eight-game summer season and 25 players turned out for the practices and the games. That helped players get used to the style of play they will use when the season starts in December. The coach said he does have some experienced players like Jared Lick, team captain, did see playing time in some games toward the end of last season and Tucker Horan who practices with the varsity last season but was sidelined most of the year with an ankle injury. The coach said Isiah Mestas, a move-in from Bear Creek, who is a point guard and will also help the team. He said it still is basically a young team with at least a couple sophomores on varsity and other JV players may move up from time to time to fill out the varsity roster. “Our strength will be pushing the ball on offense and playing solid defense,” the coach said. “We are playing zone right now but are working on playing man-to-man and putting on a half-court press to try to force turnovers.” The coach said the league schedule

is basically and unknown. “This is a new league and we’ll be playing most of these teams for the first time and know little about them,” Chapman said. “However, I expect Elizabeth will be strong. Elizabeth looked good last season and they were strong when we played them this summer.” Team captain Jared Lick said basketball is his game. He said he doesn’t play any other sport and his focus year around is basketball. “My strength is crashing the boards,” he said. “I hustle, get position and get the rebounds. I also can shoot pretty well from outside plus a lot of my points come from getting the offensive rebound and scoring on the put-back.” He said he likes the new coach and knows him because Chapman coached him last season. He said he knows this is a different system but he said he and his teammates are learning how to make it work smoothly. “I know that I will be the post player this season even though I am not all that tall,” he said. “But I have no personal goals for scoring or rebounding this season and my focus all year will be doing all I can to help out team win games.”

Pirate girls will play a run and gun style Coach’s system uses speed and quickness to counter a lack of height

CHAMPIONSHIP SATURDAY

tmunds@ourcoloradonews.com Coach Adrian Thompson said the players on the Englewood High School girls basketball team have a lot of heart and have worked hard to learn and implement the new program she introduced this season. “The new coaching staff will be emphasizing basketball fundamentals so we can implement an up tempo style in order to compensate for the lack of height on our team,” she said. “I have some leaders with varsity experience and that will help. Also we are a team with a lot of quickness and speed. So, we’ll use our quickness and speed to push the ball up the court on offense and play aggressive defense.” The Pirates worked against their first opponent Nov. 19 in a scrimmage against Skyline and they open the season at home Dec. 4 against Denver North. Englewood will have a varsity and a JV team this season so home dates will be double headers. The JV game will start at 5:30 p.m. and the varsity tipoff is scheduled at about 7:15. Home games are played in the Englewood High School field house and a single ticket is good for both games. The coach said her plan is to have the players at the high school use her system and she also plans to introduce the system at the middle school and elementary school levels. “We will work with those teams, helping the players develop good basketball fundamentals and our style of

Photo by Tom Munds play,” the coach said. “I hope working at those levels will encourage athletes and help them prepared to join us when they come to Englewood High School and play for the Pirates. As the coach noted, the Pirates have several returning letter winners on this year’s team including Mason Brainard, Kadie Kavinsky, Miranda Holman and Julia Kline. Coach Thompson said the veterans will probably be starters. However, she said, because of the up tempo style, she expects to make frequent substitutions to keep fresh players on the court so many younger players will see time in the varsity games. Kadie Kavinsky, a returning starter, said she is glad to be back on the basketball court. “I love basketball and it’s an exciting year because we are building the foundation of a new program,” the ju-

nior said. “I look to bring some leadership to the team and to help make this team like a family.” She said the team knows that most likely every opponent they face will have a height advantage. “We do have good quickness and speed so we need to use those talents to push the ball quickly up the court,” she said. “We have to establish position to get rebounds. We also are shooting from outside pretty well and, as we practice, we are getting better.” Kavinsky said this will be a difference for her this season because she is designated as a shooting guard. “This is my first season as a shooting guard so I’ll have to focus on taking and making more shots,” she said. “That is different role for me but I think it’ll be fun and I’m looking forward to the start of the season.”

real choice but to raise rates because it will be necessary for the Littleton/Englewood Wastewater Treatment Plant to add additional treatment systems in order to meet stricter federal and state requirements. Fonda agreed and added that the rate increases will also allow the plant

to borrow $3 million in 2013 in order to take advantage of interest rates, which are at a historic low. He said the borrowed funds will be placed in plant reserves in anticipation of the requirement to build facilities in 2016 to meet federal and state nutrient removal standards. Englewood and Littleton jointly own and operate the regional treat-

ment plant that serves about 300,000 people. Littleton serves about 55 percent of the customers and Englewood serves about 45 percent. Rates for Littleton customers will also be going up starting in 2013, but Littleton used different rate hikes spread over four years to reach the same financial goal.

the parking lot. The renovation is scheduled to include a facility to make it possible for Englewood schools to have a cosmetology program. Englewood used to have a cosmetology program, but it was closed down a few years ago.

When the renovation is completed, it will mean Colorado’s Finest Alternative High School building will have all the equipment to enable students to take and complete the cosmetology program. They will be prepared to take the tests to be licensed and immediately apply for jobs cutting hair, plus they will be qualified to give pedi-

cures or manicures. The new CFAHS building is also scheduled to have a fully equipped STEM lab for students focusing on science, technology, engineering and mathematics as well as a gymnasium and a facility to provide a school lunch program not available at the present location.

bargains on electronics. The first arrivals set up for comfort in tents early in the day, and Connie Bennett said she had been there since about 2 p.m. Bennett said she is single and couldn’t go home for Thanksgiving, so under the circumstances, why not spend a few hours waiting in line to get a deal on the new laptop she needs. Subhash Yangar, who was about 30th in line, said the tents were up and there were only a few people when he came to check out the line about 1:30 p.m “But the line had grown some when I came back about 5:30,” he said. “I came today looking for deals on a TV and a couple other things. I figured waiting in line for a few hours is worth it to save several hundred bucks on things I want for my home.”
