New to the festival this year is the Scales and Tales hands-on reptile and amphibian exhibit, the Downtown Aquarium and CO Aquarium Society all offering interactive live animal demonstrations and presentations. Among the returning vendors will be the Rocky Mountain Wanderers, a nationally known walking group. “It (the festival) covers a lot of outdoor activity, between a walk, a bike ride, and outdoor game booths,” Miller said. “It highlights environmental education, which is what the nature center is about.” The festival offers a variety of environmental and ecological education, promoting the city’s trails, the environment, outdoor activities and healthy lifestyle choices. Among the vendors, organizers have incorporated live animal presentations from HawkQuest, Wild Birds Unlimited, and the Birds of Prey Foundation into the festival as well as a variety of educational displays and activities for visitors to experience. “People are surprised to learn, that maybe they have a park so close to them that they didn’t realize or that there’s trail connections around their house,” Miller said. “It really is that they learn about their outdoor spaces in Arvada and how accessible they really are.” To learn more about the event call, 720898-7405 or visit arvadafestivals.com.

Learning about learning Senator tours area schools to listen and learn By Crystal Anderson
en. Rachel Zenzinger took a moment to talk about key issues and gain feedback during an educational tour, Monday, May 19. The senator met with principals, teachers and students from Pomona High School, Oberon Middle School and Meiklejohn Elementary seeking to hear about the issues, challenges and successes they’re facing around some key topics, including, Common Core implementation, technology, and new testing standards. “When we’re listening to testimony down at the state capital, sometimes it’s somewhat removed from the experiences in my own district, so this allows me the opportunity to really get to know what the real-world issues are in Senate District 19,” Zenzinger said. During her tour, Zenzinger asked questions to gain input on key issues, learning about the diversity among schools, and finding teachers and administrators were happy to have her support, as well as hear the needs of the school community in her district. “I appreciate that she wants to hear the voice and the perspectives of school communities, teachers, students, administrators and really capture their wants and needs at the state level,” Peña said. On her tour, Zenzinger heard both praises and concerns surrounding technology from several teachers and administrators. One of the teachers she met with, the senator’s former cooperating teacher, Ken Detweiler, said he wanted more information about implementing today’s testing technology more in the classroom. “I would like to find out the technology used to create the PARCC tests,” Detweiler said, “So I could try and imitate similar technology in my classroom so they could

She said she was interested to hear their opinions, as it’s vital to decision making at the statehouse. “Sitting on the Senate Education Committee, I find the information I’m gathering here to be absolutely vital,” Zenzinger said. “I think this is real-world feedback, and that’s the kind of feedback we need to make the best decisions.”

Food is foundation of bridge to future As a family approaches the stand, Monse Hines smiles and offers: “Do you want a sample?” “No,” Greg Elliott says. “We know it’s good.” He looks at his wife. “Two zucchini, two hots?” He glances at the small container on the table. “And a thing of this stuff.” “OK,” Monse says. “Thirteen dollars.” “Oh,” Greg says. “Give us one more of each.” The “each” is a pupusa, a traditional El Salvadoran food the size of a small tortilla made of corn masa filled with various ingredients — in this case, beans or zucchini, corn chile poblano and mozzarella or the “hot” mirasol roasted peppers. The “stuff” is curtido, a pickled cabbage slaw, also from El Salvador. “We tried them last summer,” Greg says, “and we really got hooked on them.” And, adds his wife, Danielle, there’s Monse (pronounced Mohn-seh). “She’s very sweet.” Monse Hines is sweet. She is small with earnest brown eyes and long, brown hair casually pulled into a ponytail. She wears faded jeans with a blush pink blouse and a silver necklace with a medallion of Mary, Joseph and the baby Jesus. Her nails are bluntly cut, no polish. Her smile is friendly and easy, like the conversation with her customers, many of them regulars at this farmers’ market. But don’t be fooled. Monse Hines, 34, is bold and brave, too — so much so that she made her entrepreneurial dream come true, one small, risky step at a time. And she did it despite being a newcomer to this country, this language, this culture. In a few short years, she has built a business that could be her family’s future. In the process, she has firmly cemented the roots of her El Salvadoran home into the foundation of her new one — adding yet another cultural ingredient to the melting-pot land we live in. “I think we all have the ability to come out ahead,” she says, intently, in Spanish.
“Solo se necesita un sueño.” All you need is a dream. Flavored with heaps of determination. “No existe la suerte,” she says. “Cada quien se hace la suerte.” Luck doesn’t exist. Each person makes his own luck. Monse should know. She was born in a Salvadoran town so small it doesn’t have a stoplight and there are few cars, anyway. Her parents taught in a high school in a nearby city, about half the size of Colorado Springs, where she lives now with her Army husband and two daughters. She met her husband in Germany, where she had traveled for a yearlong exchange program while in college. She wanted to learn German, so she sold her car and just about everything she owned to finance the trip. Friends took her to an Oktoberfest, and while she was dancing, Timothy Hines, stationed at a nearby Army base, began talking to her in English. “I asked him why he was talking to me in English — we are in Germany,” Monse remembers, with a smile. Three months later, they flew home to his family in Texas and married on Thanksgiving Day. They celebrate their 10th anniversary this year. It was in 2011 — Tim was deployed for a year in Afghanistan — that Monse’s dream emerged. Her sister took her to a Whole Foods. She recalls the wonder. “Everything was so pretty,” she says. “There, my vision started — a healthy product in this supermarket.” After deciding that her pupusas and curtido would be gluten-free and use only organic and non-genetically modified
ingredients, she began researching on the Internet: How to get a license to sell a food product. How to make a label. How to package according to health department regulations. Who had the best prices. Everything had to be bought in small quantities because there was little money to invest — she and Tim had decided they would not take out loans. Each month, Monse would decide how much she could afford to spend. Maybe $100 one month. She needed a Web page? Maybe $10 more another month for that. Neighbors and family helped her navigate the English language and fill out paperwork. Her mother-in-law designed her label. “We all have these angels who help us,” Monse says. Then she won an audience at a Whole Foods in Colorado Springs. And, in June 2012, her curtido, under the name Monse’s Taste of El Salvador, first appeared on the store’s shelves. The pupusas followed two months later. “No sé como explicarlo,” she says. I don’t know how to explain it. “To know that a company so big wants your products — it’s like being in a dreamland.” Tim got home in time to make the first delivery. He was thrilled. “She decided `I’m going to do this’ and she did,” he says. “I was proud to come home and share this thing that was hers.” He describes how, for Monse, food from her country was a way to introduce herself to families in the places they lived. “She would make something from El Salvador and nobody else would have it and it was something she could share.” As a business, it does the same, opening a door between cultures. The niche “is hers and she can claim it — `This is how my mom and my grandma made it and I’ll use your ingredients to make something from my home,’” Tim says. “I think it’s really cool.” These days, Monse has one employee to help her make about 7,000 pupusas a week. They work from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
out of a commercial kitchen space that is shared with five other entrepreneurs. “We divide the cost so we can all survive,” Monse says. And she buys her produce from Pueblo and Colorado Springs farmers, so that the circle of local enterprise is complete. Her products can be found in Whole Foods in Colorado Springs, Highlands Ranch, Southglenn and Belmar, and soon in a Natural Grocers in Colorado Springs. The University of Colorado in Boulder buys about 4,000 pupusas a week to sell in its cafeterias. “I can’t believe that this has happened to me,” Monse says. “I am grateful to God and to the support from this country. As a woman, too, I feel as if I’ve been able to better myself, that there are no barriers.” The Army has relocated Tim to Oklahoma for three years, starting in mid-July. But they have decided Monse and the girls will remain here. They will travel back and forth to see each other. The business, they hope, will be their work after Tim retires. “We have to make the sacrifice,” Monse says. “Si Dios quiere” — if God wills it, “the business can give us a better future for our daughters.” A customer approaches Monse’s stand at a recent farmers’ market in Highlands Ranch. “Can I try one?” the woman asks. “Which one is this?” “Black bean,” Monse says, as she slices the pupusa that has been heating on the pan and tops it with a spoonful of curtido. “Excellent,” the woman says, after a bite. “You’re here every week?” One more sale. One more convert. One more step toward a future built on a taste of the past. Ann Macari Healey’s column about people, places and issues of everyday life appears every other week.

Pot law aims to protect kids Separate measure deals with concentrates By Vic Vela firstname.lastname@example.org A Highlands Ranch legislator hopes that a new marijuana law will help keep the drug out of the hands of children. Gov. John Hickenlooper on May 21 signed into law a bill that aims to distinguish cannabis-infused edibles like candy and cookies from other foods so that kids don’t accidentally consume the drug. Rep. Frank McNulty, R-Highlands Ranch, a bill sponsor, said that by requiring edibles to be packaged in a way that makes them easy to identify as containing marijuana, fewer children would end up
having to be hospitalized for accidental ingestion. “It certainly gives parents and teachers and school resource officers the tool that they need to identify these things and keep them out of kids’ hands,” McNulty said. Report The bill was signed at Children’s Hospital Colorado in Aurora, where nine children have been treated for marijuana ingestion so far this year. The bill creates a task force that will determine the rules to make marijuana edibles clearly identifiable. That includes what kinds of markings are on the packag-
ing or on the edibles themselves. The bill is a change from its original form, which sought to prohibit companies from “selling things that look like kid snacks, lacing them with THC and turning around and selling them to adults,” McNulty said. However, that effort had to be pulled back after it ran into problems during the legislative process. “I would have liked to have gone further, but we had to work within the process we had,” McNulty said. “And I think the end product moves us to a direction of keeping kids safe.” Hickenlooper also signed into law a separate bill that regulates the amount of concentrated marijuana that a person can possess. Under Amendment 64, which was approved by voters in 2012, adults are al-
lowed to possess up to an ounce of marijuana, regardless of whether it is in plant “bud” form or in concentrated form, such as hash oil. But concentrated pot can contain many more servings than in plant form. The new law addresses that by requiring the state to determine how much concentrated pot is equal to an ounce of leafy marijuana. Both bills received bipartisan sponsorship and support at the General Assembly. Christian Sederberg, a marijuana attorney, said the Legislature did a good job this year in dealing with the new territory of legalized pot sales and consumption. “At the end of the session, there were a number of responsible bills that add to the regulatory structure and provide opportunities for the program to continue to improve,” he said.

Denver stays on list for Republican convention Three other cities compete for 2016 RNC By Amy Woodward awoodward@colorado communitymedia.com Denver made it through the latest round of cuts on Thursday, May 22, for cities competing to host the 2016 Republican National Convention. That leaves three other cities including Cleveland, Dallas and Kansas City, Missouri. Earlier in the day, Cincinnati and Las Vegas withdrew their bids for site selection. This latest announcement means
that Denver will receive a visit by the site selection delegation some time in June or July. “Today the committee determined that Cleveland, Dallas, Denver, and Kansas City will receive official visits from the full RNC site selection delegation,” Committee Chairwoman Enid Mickelsen said in a statement. “All cities excelled in nearly every aspect of their bids and presentation this year, but these four cities stood out from the field from the start of this process and deserve a deeper look by the full committee.” Pete Coors, Denver 2016 committee chairman, held a small press conference on Thursday. “This is a huge deal for Denver and for Colorado,” he
said. “We need to have them understand hopefully what a great city this is and that we have the capability and the capacity to pull off a convention.” In the end, it all comes down to funding, he said. At least $50 million is needed by the RNC to throw the convention, and Dallas proves to be a worthy opponent who has reportedly already raised $25 million. In the coming weeks, the committee will be stepping up its fundraising, Coors said. Commitments from donors and various private sources have raised $10.3 million, according to Colorado GOP Chairman Ryan Call.

opinions / yours and ours
Newest may not be the greatest With so much content and so many authors and experts who write about the trends in the field of personal and professional development, sales training, leadership and customer service, I am often asked by customers for the latest and greatest material in these areas. They are looking for that something new or a silver bullet, some magic dust or cure-all pill to fix their problems, their people, or in some cases, themselves. Now don’t get me wrong, I am a huge advocate of growth and I am all for continuing education whether that comes in the form of reading, listening, watching, participating in seminars, or cloud learning through socialization of ideas, or any other medium, for that matter, that takes us and/or our teams to a higher level. Any attempt at upping our game in anything we do or endeavor to do is to be applauded. And when I am asked for specific advice or recommendation for a good book or program to attend, I love to share thoughts and ideas as well as happily
recommend something provocative that I have recently read or participated in. But my favorite thing to do is remind people that it is not necessarily “what’s new” that works … it’s really all about “what works” that works. Sometimes the latest and greatest writings or advice is adopted quickly as a trend or fad, but soon meld into some remnant of a concept or philosophy that was written and practiced long ago. I still enjoy these programs and materials because maybe they put a new spin or twist on an old theory and I get to experience
it in a new and different way. Many of the books I have read are dogeared and highlighted in different colors and tabbed with different color sticky notes as I have gone back to the same books many times over. It’s like watching your favorite movie for the 10th time and hearing a line or seeing a scene that you previously missed. When Hall of Fame baseball player Ted William finished the 1941 baseball season with a .400 batting average, was he using today’s technology to achieve his results? When golfing greats Jack Nicklaus, Sam Snead, Arnold Palmer or Byron Nelson recorded golf scores in the low 60s they surely weren’t using the clubs, grips, balls, and swing technology we use now. As a matter of fact, I would bet that any of today’s baseball players such as Troy Tulowitzki or Derek Jeter, and golfers such as Bubba Watson or Tiger Woods, would have been equally as good if they played with the same equipment and competed in the same era as the above-mentioned greats. I say this with confidence because it
really isn’t about the equipment, it’s about the player, the talent, the work ethic, and the practice. With a focused approach on effort, practice, and the fundamentals we can all excel in anything we strive for in our personal life, our business, or in our recreational activities. So even with all the technology and gadgetry available to us, it really isn’t about “what’s new” that works, it is about finding “what works” that works. How about you, do you focus on effort and practice, or do you look for the newest or latest and greatest equipment to up your game? Either way I would love to hear all about it at email@example.com. And I do believe that when our efforts and practice outpace our search for the next new thing, it really will be a better than good week.

A message for our graduates This week, as I contemplated Memorial Day, I also shared in the joys of young people in my life who are graduating from high school and college. The two are not unrelated. Memorial Day was even more poignant this year because I spent several days in Washington, D.C, last month for a business meeting, where my sister joined me for a few glorious days in our nation’s Capitol. Our focus was the memorials: the stunning and profound Vietnam wall, the eerie and ghostly Korean War Memorial, and the globe-like memorial to those men and women who fought for freedom and against evil in World War II. Arlington National Cemetery was particularly moving, where the sign at the entrance reminded us that “these are hallowed grounds.” As we reverently passed through blossoming trees that shaded rows of headstones, I was reminded of similar rows here at Fort Logan, where my mother and father – both World War II veterans – are laid to rest. What does this have to do with you young people who are embarking on new chapters in your lives? Everything. Some of you will choose to enter the U.S. Armed Forces yourselves, some will become business and community leaders, artists and musicians who continue to enrich our culture. These are not mutually exclusive. Some of you will opt for public life, elected officials to whom we will look for honesty and integrity … please remember this. You will be the activists and the pacifists who will force a balance in our nation’s thinking, the newsmakers and news reporters whose viewpoints will both shape and provoke our own. You will work passionately for social justice, and you will become educators so that one day graduates can stand where you are today and learn that they are the hope of the future. Because you, dear graduates, are the
hope of our future. In a world where countries – despite their protestations otherwise – are pursuing, building, acquiring, and stockpiling nuclear weapons, where self-proclaimed leaders are oppressing their own people and crushing anyone else who gets in their way, where extremist groups of all kinds abuse human rights, you must take up the mantle of those who came before you. Crucial to your success is this: you are living in the United States of America, a country built on free speech and a free press, on freedom of religion and freedom of assembly, rights not enjoyed by many peoples around the globe. It is your responsibility to begin right now, today, to combat those forces – from without and within – that erode these principles. Many of you know that I am an outspoken pacifist, advocating for means, whenever possible, other than violence. This is my stand, and you must take yours, but I truly believe that you, that all of us, can achieve our own potentials only if America achieves hers in the landscape of the world. We must all step up, speak out, and act for what we believe is right. On Memorial Day 2014, as you begin your journeys into the world, please join me in honoring those who have already stepped up, those who served – including my parents – and those who died, for the ideals of freedom, human rights, and peace.

A look back at the legislative session The legislative session has come to a close and this year, as usual, we were busy under the gold dome. I was pleased with how much good, bipartisan work we accomplished this session, especially on bills helping Coloradans recover from the floods and fires of 2013. Ninety-six percent of the bills that passed this session passed with bipartisan support. This included making historic investments in our education system, putting nearly $500 million to K-12 and $100 million into higher education as well as adding vital transparency provisions so parents know how those dollars are being spent in their schools and districts. I am happy to report that 11 bills I sponsored this session passed the House and Senate. Some have already been signed by Gov. Hickenlooper and some are still awaiting his signature, but all will have benefits for House District 29 and the state of Colorado. Our economy is continuing to recover, but there is still more work to do to help Coloradans find a job. My main priority this session was to continue to work to improve Colorado’s economy. Many of my
bills focused on creating good-paying jobs across the state. HB 1015 extends the ReHire Colorado program through 2017. This program provides job coaching, training and transitional job opportunities to under and unemployed Coloradans and has been successful over the past year, already 500 people have enrolled. The program was scheduled to end this year, but this bill ensures that we will continue to help Coloradans get the skills they need to find a job as the economy recovers. HB 1014, which I sponsored with Minority Leader Brian Delgrosso (R-Loveland) extends the job growth incentive tax credit and allows businesses to receive the credit for up to eight years. This bill will attract new busi-
nesses to Colorado and retain employers that offer good-paying, quality jobs. HB 1374, which I sponsored with Rep. Chris Holbert (R-Parker) will encourage aircraft manufacturing across Colorado, including at Rocky Mountain Airport. I was also pleased to support legislation making childcare more available and affordable for Colorado’s hardworking families. Unfortunately, Colorado is consistently ranked among the top ten states with the highest rates of suicide in the country. SB 88, which I sponsored with Sen. Linda Newell (D-Littleton), creates a suicide prevention commission task force to provide recommendations to the Office of Suicide Prevention to help at-risk individuals in Colorado and reduce the rate of suicide in our state. I have heard from many constituents concerning the US 36 contract and development project. In response I sponsored SB 197 with Rep. Mike Foote (D-Lafayette) and Sens. Matt Jones (D- Louisville) and Bernie Herpin (R-Colorado Springs). This bill requires CDOT to increase public participation in any future public-private partnership and increases legislative
arvada city council on the record Arvada City Council voted on the following legislation during its May 19 business meeting. Council members in attendance were Mayor Pro Tem Mark McGoff, District 1 Councilman Jerry Marks, District 3 Councilman John Marriott, District 4 Councilman Bob Dyer, and Councilmen At-Large Don Allard and Bob Fifer. Mayor Marc Williams was absent.
Council unanimously passed several agreements to annex Britton Park, 5574 W. 69th Ave., into the City of Arvada. Britton Park is a 7.1 acre parcel purchased by the City of Arvada in 2013 and is a designated park property.
Leyden Rock Development Update
Council unanimously decided on two resolutions authorizing the annexation of Allied Waste, 18900 W. 82nd Ave., and the development plan and preliminary plat of 412 single-family residential lots, representing the third phase of the Leyden Rock project. The area will cover 347 of the project’s 1,032 acres and will include single-family housing in the Town of Leyden, which lies west of Indiana Avenue. The project began in 2009 and this will be the final phase of the overall development plan.
Neighborhood Improvement Grants Council voted 3-3 (Mayor being absent) down a resolution authorizing the city to spend $43,813 for allocation to six Arvada neighborhoods as part of the Neighborhood Improvement Grant program. Council was disappointed with the program’s applications, stating many of the applicants were homeowners associations and whether this grant program, as currently proposed, is an efficient use of city resources. The neighborhood grant program was designed in 2010 to help identify projects throughout Arvada’s neighborhoods to help benefit, beautify and improve those areas. This year, the city received eight applications which were evaluated by members of several city departments based on a set of criteria including neighborhood benefit and involvement, sustainability, as well as the presence or need for additional funding partners. Since the motion did not pass, council suggested to staff revisiting the program, evaluating it’s criteria and using it on a need-basis. The next council meeting is 6 p.m. June 2, in the Council Chambers at City Hall, 8101 Ralston Rd. in Arvada. — Compiled by Crystal Anderson

letter to the editor A matter of diversity Columnist Michael Alcorn asserts in his May 8 column that “Dr. Alphonzo Rodriguez, doctorate, came within inches of accusing the Jeffco School board president of being racist.” Then Alcorn goes on to describe racism using a blatant example from recent national news. Rodriquez in no way inferred that Ken Witt was racist, just that he did not understand the wider meaning of diversity, meant to include a range of things, like gender, race, religion, sexual preference and gender identity, as well as special needs and others. We live in a time when
many people are openly hostile to some of these groups, and a sensitivity to that is critical to someone who leads a school district like Jeffco. I get the impression that Alcorn does not understand the full meaning of the word, either. Witt made the statement, and refused to include language on diversity in the job description. Let him explain what he meant. By the way Rodriquez’s first name is Alonzo, not Alphonzo, and adding doctorate after his name is redundant. Laei Moe Arvada
Anton G. Pegis 1920 – 2014
Anton G. Pegis, 94, died peacefully at home in Golden, Colorado, on May 15, 2014. He was preceded in death by his wife of 63 years, Harriet Stevens Pegis; a granddaughter, Julie Hébert Cameron; and five siblings. His survivors include daughters Stefani De Bell (Michael) and Penelope Pegis; granddaughter Kimberly Hébert and stepgranddaughter Heather Beechum; sister Polly Pease; and many nieces and nephews. Born in 1920 to George and Eugenia Pegis, Tony grew up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where he graduated from Bay View High School. He was in the Wisconsin National Guard before enlisting in the U.S. Army in 1940. After receiving his Army commission in 1942, he served in the Pacific theater during World War II. In 1980, he retired from the Army Reserve with the rank of major. Tony received a bachelor’s degree in 1949 from Western State College in Gunnison, Colorado. He taught English at Fort Lewis College in Durango, Colorado, before moving to Denver, where he earned his master’s and doctorate in English from the
University of Denver. During a 28-year career at the Colorado School of Mines in Golden, he taught English and philosophy and served for 10 years as Vice President. Upon his 1982 retirement, he was named Professor Emeritus of English. The Mines Class of 1960 made him an honorary class member in 2000 and established a scholarship fund in his name. After retiring from Mines, Tony continued working as a technical writing consultant for federal agencies and private industries. He also taught technical writing and editing seminars throughout the United States and in Germany, Guam, and Puerto Rico, until he fully retired in 2005. Tony and Harriet enjoyed traveling; a highlight was their trip to Greece, where they visited Athens and journeyed to the village of Tropaia, the birthplace of Tony’s parents. Interment is at Fort Logan National Cemetery; arrangements are private at Tony’s request. Memorial contributions may be made to The Dr. Anton G. Pegis Scholarship Fund, Colorado School of Mines Foundation, P.O. Box 4005, Golden, CO 80402.

Spotlight on the Arvada Beer Company Neighborhood brewers bring homebrewing to a craft scale By Crystal Anderson
canderson@colorado communitymedia.com Editor’s Note: This story is the first in a three-part series exploring the breweries of Arvada. Look for the next installments in our July 3 and July 31 editions.
n 1988, Cary Floyd tasted a friend’s homebrewed beer, mulling over the tastes of the hops and spice, and became hooked. Soon after, Floyd began to brew his own beer, and after a positive reaction to one of his early batches, he knew he was onto something good. “In 1988 really, there were not a lot of good brews around,” Floyd said. “By my fourth batch, I took a keg to a Super Bowl party, everybody loved it and I just kept going on from there, making more flavorful beers.” Over the next 14 years, while working as a director for technology mogul, Oracle, Floyd consistently brewed his own beer. He practiced different styles of brewing, created recipes, mainly German beers, such as a Pilsner or Hefeweizen, and developed consistency in his beer. In 2002, he won his first medal at the Dixie Cup in Texas, and shortly after in 2004, met his future wife, Kelly. He challenging her to make a better beer — and she did. After winning his playful challenge, Floyd knew not only did he have to marry her, they needed to start a business.
What’s on tap · Goldline IPA - 6.2 percent ABV , 65 IBUs – An IPA loaded with 8 kinds of hops. · Ralston’s Golden Ale - 5.2 percent ABV , 25 IBUs – A crisp, malty American-style ale. · Watermelon Wheat -- 5.1 percent ABV, 14 IBUs -- A refreshing wheat beer with hints of watermelon. · Lemon Shandy – 4 percent ABV, 12 IBUs – A mix with Ralston’s Golden Ale mixed and fresh lemonade. · PoolHall Porter – 5.1 percent ABV, 15 IBUs – A dark ale with chocolate, caramel and malty tones. · Vanilla Porter – 5.1 percent ABV, 15 IBUs – A dark ale with hints of chocolate, caramel and vanilla. · Arvada Red – 5.2 percent ABV, 19 IBUs – A smooth, malty red beer with a low hops profile. · Hopped Up Red – 5.2 percent ABV, 35 IBUs -- The traditional Irish Red beer with an additional45 IBUs of hops. · Irish Stout on Nitro – 4.5 percent, 30 IBUs – A dark stout with a rich creamy flavor to balance the bitterness. · Saison de Davis – 7.5 percent ABV, 25 IBUs – A Belgian inspired ale with a distinct flavor profile. · Water Tower Wheat- 5.1 percent ABV, 14 IBUs – A Hefeweizen with light hops and a hint of banana. · Rennovator Dopplebock – 11 percent ABV, 22 IBUs – A rich and malty German-style lager.
“Beer is an art, and to make beer, is an art,” Kelly said. “To create the recipe, to go ahead and actually brew it and make that beer — it’s an art form that most people don’t realize. There’s a lot of science behind the project.” A few years and over 400 home brewing medals later, the couple decided to open up a microbrewery, and in 2010, the Arvada Beer Company was born. “Our concept is to be the local hang-
out,” Floyd said, “You want to come here with your family, your friends, you want to come hangout.” Located at 5600 Olde Wadsworth Blvd., the Arvada Beer Company taproom sits in a spacious, relaxed corner building in the heart of Olde Town Arvada. Seating around 150 patrons, the taproom offers more than 60 types of games, catering from 11 Olde Town eateries, and a quiet atmosphere to enjoy a conversation and savor a handcrafted brew in. “I’m really happy with their location here, and the interest in history,” said Buddy Sexton, 72, a patron of ABC. “I meet a lot of nice people here so it’s a good place to hang out; it’s my hangout now.” Aligning the walls around the taproom are vintage photographs and posters depicting the building’s former uses, owners and other key points of the building’s 100-year history — an aspect patrons love to talk about. “This (ABC) is in the middle of thousands of memories for me,” Sexton said. I was surprised and impressed when I met Cary, because he studied the history of Arvada, and I was impressed around the history he has here.” Aside from the history, patrons come to ABC to have conversations and enjoy hanging out with one another while sipping one of ABC’s 50 award-winning beers. “There are other places that serve beer, and other places that brew beer, but the beers here are top of the line,” Sexton said. “The thing I like about the business is, he’s (Floyd) not concentrated on food, he’s concentrated on beer and
brewing, not anything else. That’s what makes them (ABC) stand out.” On a daily basis, ABC has 10 to 12 beers on tap, brewing three to four beers a week. Five house beers, such as the Gold Line IPA (India Pale Ale), PoolHall Porter, and the Lemon Shandy, with seasonal or special beers, such as the Butter Pecan Brown and Chile Golden Ale are rotating through the taps. Every month ABC introduces different styles of beer, such as Belgian beers, to help create diversity and fit their and their clientele’s ever evolving tastes. “It’s fun to play, fun to create, and fun to see what people think, the best part of the job is playing,” Floyd said. In addition to brewing their beers, Cary and Kelly also attend several beer festivals, host AM 760 Radio’s Colorado Craft Beer Show, and offer a home brewing contest, giving local home brewers a chance to have their beer flowing crisp at 38 degrees out of ABC’s taps. “That’s where we came from, we’re home brewers, so it’s fun to get the homebrew community involved in the business that we run now,” Floyd said. Annually, ABC produces around 1200 barrels of beer, selling the majority of beer in the taproom. While they don’t bottle or can, they sell 64-ounce and 32-ounce growlers, and in the future, Cary and Kelly are looking to expand, opening another neighborhood tasting room in western Arvada. “At the end of the day,” Floyd said, “Seeing people sitting over there (in the taproom), smiling because they like the beers — that’s the best part.” For more information on the Arvada Beer Company, visit www.arvadabeer. com.

In celebration of its 35th anniversary, Swallow Hill Music in south Denver is delivering more music to more people in more places. And its latest effort to expand its music community comes with wheels. A donor recently gave Swallow Hill Music a 1976 Silver Streak motor home, to be turned into a mobile music community. But, the ol’ girl needs a little TLC. A crowd-funding campaign with a goal of raising $10,000 launches today to help the Swallow Hill Music mobile home hit the road. Contributions made over the next few weeks will get the Silver Steak running smoothly, add signage and give her an overall buff and shine. Once she’s up and running, she’ll turn into a mobile music community, providing Instrument Petting Zoos, impromptu performances and musical experiences throughout Denver. Taking Swallow Hill Music on the road will boost Denver’s access to music education by transporting instruments and musical experiences throughout the metro area, meeting people where they live and enriching their lives through music.

New open-air space
The idea is so brilliant that you would have thought the Larimer Square brain trust would have planted seeds for a farmers’ market years ago. But the seeds have finally sprouted into a full-grown fruit, vegetable, bread, cheese, spice and meat market in the courtyard adjacent to restaurant Bistro Vendome, owned by Larimer Square lassies Beth Gruitch and award-winning chef Jennifer Jasinski. To help establish the “chef-curated” open-air vendor space, Euclid Hall and Stoic & Genuine (opening July in the Union Station redevelopment) chef Jorel Pierce lent his culinary prowess to the project with the support of Larimer Square honchos Jeff Hermanson and Joe Vostrejs. The result? Le Jardin Secret, debuting with the Denver Chalk Art Festival on May 31 and continuing on Saturdays through Aug. 23. Le Jardin organizers hosted invited guests to a sneak peek of the bounty offered by local merchants including Grateful Bread Company, Western Daughters Butcher Shoppe, the Truffle Cheese Shop, Sugarmill and Blooming Fool.

School funding measures signed into law By Vic Vela
firstname.lastname@example.org In front of a group of school children who are just starting to grasp basic arithmetic, Gov. John Hickenlooper on May 21 signed into law a pair of complex, multimillion dollar school finance measures. The new laws will allow a state school finance system that was significantly strained
by recession-era budget cuts to grow by nearly $500 million. The cash infusion will fund several areas of K-12 resources, including school construction and preschool, kindergarten and English language learner programs. “We’re trying to make sure that each one of you guys gets every single advantage, every single chance, because your success is the future of this state,” Hickenlooper said during a

bill signing that was held inside Aurora’s Ponderosa Elementary School. A major K-12 funding piece comes from the Student Success Act. The legislation provides $20 million for programs that target children who are struggling to read and $53 million for school construction, with $40 million of that going toward construction in rural areas — the latter funding coming from Amendment 64-backed retail marijuana revenue. An additional $3 million will go toward financial transparency efforts that are aimed at allowing taxpayers to see how the new money is being reported and spent. The funding includes a $110 million buy down of the so-called “negative factor” — recession-era funding cuts that slashed about $1 billion from the state’s K-12 budget. The governor also signed into law the annual school finance act, which includes $27 million for English language learner programs and funds an additional 5,000 seats in preschool and kindergarten classrooms. “This bill that the governor is about to sign will authorize 5,000 more kids next year going to publicly-funded, quality preschool programs than what was possible the year before,” said Sen. Pat Steadman, D-Denver, a bill sponsor. Additionally, per-pupil funding for next school year will jump to $7,021, a 5 percent increase. “That’s almost $400 for every one of you
students,” Sen. Mike Johnston, D-Denver, told the children in the audience. “So imagine if you came through the doors this morning and we handed $400 to each one of you. It would be pretty good stuff.” The funding efforts that the Legislature passed this year were a response to last year’s failed Amendment 66 ballot measure, which sought to bolster school funding through tax increases. No Republican lawmakers were present for the signing ceremony. However, the Student Success Act was co-sponsored by Rep. Carole Murray, R-Castle Rock, and both bills received bipartisan support at the Capitol. Republicans who expressed concerns about the funding measures during the legislative process argued that the efforts do not go far enough in replacing “negative factor” dollars. GOP lawmakers also wanted school districts to have more control over how the money is spent, without state strings attached. But Democratic lawmakers who attended the bill signing told students that they’re going to be in a better position to succeed because of the new funding. “People worked really hard to cause us to fund education at a higher level; to be able to restore some of the money that was missing; to be able to cause you to have a better opportunity to be successful,” said Rep. John Buckner, D-Aurora.

Ain’t Life ‘Fantastick’? Classic romance comes to Miners Alley By Clarke Reader
creader@colorado communitymedia.com History’s longest running musical is coming to Miners Alley Playhouse, bringing along with it a delightful mix of humor, unique characters and memorable tunes. “The Fantasticks,” a musical by Tom Jones and Harvey Schmidt that premiered in 1960, will be playing at Golden’s Miners Alley, 1224 Washington Ave., through June 29. Performances are Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday at 6 p.m. “This show has really endured the test of time and is on a lot of people’s favorites list,” said director Brenda Worley Billings. “To be that enduring it has to have all the things that people want in a story.” The story of “The Fantasticks” centers on two neighboring fathers who try to trick their children, Matt (Mark Lively) and Luisa (Jacquie Jo Billings), into falling in love by pretending to hate each other. The fathers figure that since teenagers always want to do the opposite of what their parents say, the best way to get them together is to act like the families can’t stand each other. To help sell the story, the fathers hire some traveling actors to stage a mock abduction so that Matt can save Luisa, thus putting an end to the feud. The plan works, but once the two children learn that the whole scenario was a set-up, the split-up. As they navigate their way through the difficulties of the real world, they start to wonder if they actually do belong together. The musical includes such hits as “Try to Remember,” “They Were You,” and “Soon it’s Gonna Rain” in its song list. Billings describes the story as “moonlight in the first act and sunlight in the second.” “There are some very funny and tender moments and it is really fun journey,” she

added. Rory Pierce plays El Gallo, who serves both as narrator and one of the actors hired to kidnap Luisa, said that the show exemplifies the idea that no one can appreciate happiness without a little bit of sadness. “People might be surprised by the depth and nuance of the characters,” he said. “El Gallo is certainly a larger than life character who likes to teach life lessons to anyone who will listen.” “The Fantasticks” represents several first for the people involved. This is Billings first time directing at Miners Alley and is Pierce’s first appearance on the Miners stage. Pierce is a nearly 25-year veteran over at the former Heritage Square Music Hall and said that playing the new venue has been an exciting experience. “I got some priceless experience at Heritage Square and I really couldn’t ask for a better theater or show for the first time I stepped away,” he said. “The cast has been tremendous and the production team has been wonderful.” Billings said the show is a great ride for everyone to take. “We want everyone to come and take this musical journey with us,” she said. “It has endured all these years because of the way it captures what is comic in life.” For more information, call 303-9353044 or visit www.minersalley.com.

rV the state’s runner-ups Columbine wins all-Jeffco title game with huge second half By Daniel Williams
dwilliams@colorado communitymedia.com COMMERCE CITY — The slipper didn’t fit. Early in the game No. 10 Ralston Valley electrified the soggy crowd by taking a 1-0 lead and for a moment it felt as though the Mustangs were going to win their first 5A state soccer championship. However, it was No. 8 Columbine who proved themselves he state’s best team, winning a weather-delayed state title game 3-1 Thursday at Dicks Sporting Goods Park. Ralston Valley carried the momentum from its dramatic 3-2 comeback victory over Pine Creek last Saturday into the title game, taking a 1-0 lead in the game’s 21st minute when freshman Lindsay Guerrero scored on a breakaway. Guerrero was set up by fellow freshman Sarah Bevington and the Mustangs held the 1-0 lead into halftime and looked like they were on the verge of winning a state title. But on the verge was as close as Ralston Valley would come, as the second half belonged to Columbine. The Rebels wasted no time seizing control in the second half, scoring seven minutes into the half. Columbine sophomore Kelcey Cavarra scored off a free kick that slipped through the fingers of Ralston Valley goalie Renee Roemer in the 47th minute of action. Three minutes later Columbine took a 2-1 lead when freshman Amanda Porter scored off a shot from an improbable angle. The Mustangs attempted to respond with several second half scoring chances but a combination of a slippery field and Columbine’s defense kept Ralston Valley from converting an equalizer. The Rebels would seal the deal with less than a minute left in the game when sophomore Tatum Barton made it 3-1, scoring on a breakaway that broke the Mustangs’

However, the Mustangs were beat by Columbine 3-1 in the 5A state championship game. Photos by Daniel Williams hearts. The championship for the Rebels is extra special and properly timed as retiring Columbine principal Frank DeAngelis attended his last sporting event. DeAngelis became a national figure with his handling of 1999’s Columbine shootings. DeAngelis wraps up a 35-year career at Columbine High School. It was also the second time Columbine beat Ralston Valley this season. On April 28 the Rebels beat the Mustangs 1-0 in a league contest that helped decide the 5A Jeffco League title. The 5A title game was originally scheduled for Wednesday but heavy rain and hail pushed the game back 24 hours. The heavy rain returned on Thursday but the girls played through the storm. Columbine becomes the first 5A Jeffco team to capture a girl’s soccer championship since Chatfield in 2009.
Students in the Ralston Valley section cheer on their Mustangs, even enduring some heavy rain, Thursday at Dicks Sporting Goods Park.
4A a runaway but 5A golf had dramatic ending Playoff decides individual 5A state champion By Daniel Williams
dwilliams@colorado communitymedia.com LITTLETON — The girls’ 4A golf state championship was won in clear fashion, but drama surrounded the 5A state championship, Tuesday at Raccoon Creek Golf Course. After 36 holes the girls’ 5A title was still undecided but Rock Canyon senior Michelle Romano pared the first hole of a playoff to claim the individual title with a score of 9 over. Romano beat Arapahoe’s Hannah Wood in the playoff and outlasted three other golfers who all finished one stroke behind Romano at 10 over. Regis Jesuit won the 5A team title with a final score of 485 just beating Rock Canyon who finished with a score of 490. Arapahoe finished third with at 493. Jeffco’s top finisher was Columbine’s Jaylee Tait, who led the pack at different points in the tournament, and finished at

83 for a final score of 17 over. The Mustangs also finished as the state’s eighth best team with a team total score of 88 over.
Pomona’s Zarena Brown also had a noteworthy finish for Jeffco shooting 20 over after efforts of 79 and 85. Brown finished in 19th place. The 4A tournament was not much in doubt compared to 5A’s dramatic finish but there was still plenty of impressive golf played both days of competition. None were more impressive than Jefferson Academy’s Jennifer Kupcho who finished at 2 over after shooting rounds of 72 and 74. Kupcho finished 14 strokes ahead of her closest competitor, Valor Christian’s Andrea Ballou, who finished 16 over. Emilee Strausburg of D’Evelyn finished third at 18 over. Cheyenne Mountain won the 4A team title finishing at 88 over, followed by Montrose who finished +103 and Colorado Academy at 105 over. 4A Jeffco had three additional golfers finish in the top 13 including Golden’s Megan Vernon who finished eighth overall at 26 over. Wheat Ridge’s Leah Donnelly finished tied for ninth with her 27 over and Green Mountain’s Nicole Rooney finished tied for 13th with her final score of 28 over.

Green Mountain claims state baseball title Rams a team of destiny on dramatic ride to 4A title By Daniel Williams
dwilliams@colorado communitymedia.com LAKEWOOD — Despite having to beat both Longmont and Niwot on Saturday to win the 4A State Baseball Tournament, Green Mountain sealed the deal, to win the state title on Friday. One day before the Rams offi-
cially won a state championship they were one strike away from being eliminated from the tournament all together. But after a dramatic 7-6 comeback victory over Durango Friday at All-Star Park, the Rams realized there was no way they were going to end their season without the 4A state championship. “We just kept on believing that we were the best team and that we were going to come out on top,” Green Mountain coach Brad Madden said. The Rams were down 5-1 and then 6-5 in the seventh inning,
down to their final strike against Durango on Friday. But somehow Green Mountain managed to load the bases before senior catcher Justin Akiyama hit a walk-off game winning hit. “I didn’t want that to be my last ever high school at bat,” Akiyama said. “I was going to do whatever it took to keep us alive.” After Akiyama’s clutch hit Rams’ players went bananas and, despite having to win two more games 24 hours later, Green Baseball continues on Page 17

Garcia named wrestler of the year Garcia is arguably Colorado’s all-time greatest wrestler By Daniel Williams
dwilliams@colorado communitymedia.com LAKEWOOD - PT Garcia is a Colorado wrestling icon. And to top off one of the greatest prep careers in our state’s history the Bear Creek senior was honored as the wrestler of the year by the National Wrestling Hall of Fame Colorado chapter. Garcia, along with a handful of others, was honored at the 16th Annual Hall of Fame Honors Banquet last Saturday at the Marriott Hotel in Colorado Springs. A three-time Colorado state wrestling champion, Garcia defeated Greeley West’s Adrian DeLaCruz 10-7 on Feb. 22 to win a 132-pound state title. He also won a state championship at 132 as a junior and 120 as a sophomore. Also honored was Valley head coach Mike Caciari who was tabbed as high school coach of the year after leading his Vikings to a 2013 state title. Bill Bragg, David De Giacomo, Mickey DeRock, Harlan Hankins, Greg Maestas,
Art Martinez and Harvey Starbuck were also honored for their lifetime service to wrestling. And others who were honored Saturday night included: College Coach of the Year Chuck Pipher, Colorado Mesa University College Wrestler of the Year Josh Martinez, Air Force Academy, Youth Coach of the Year Ben Menzor, Youth Wrestler of the Year Josiah Rider, Wrestling Media Award Tim Yount, Wrestling Officials of the Year Ryun Mendoza and LD Powell, Dave De Giacomo Award Steve Valdez and the Special Merit Award Kevin Bracken. In other wrestling news: CHSAA’s Legislative Council announced Thursday wrestling will use its own enrollment number cutoffs to determine classes. According to CHSAANow.com, wrestling will now join football as the only sports to have separate enrollment cutoffs, where as every other sport uses figures primarily determined by the number of basketball schools in each classification. The affected are classes 4A, 3A and 2A but there were no changes in 5A. The problem stemmed from wrestling looking at a standout disparity of teams in each classification, with 4A set to have 71 teams while 3A would’ve had 38. Now with the change 4A and 3A will have 53 teams each.

Baseball Continued from Page 15
Mountain had the definite feeling of a team of destiny. Saturday’s games were just a formality as the Rams beat Longmont 9-1 and then went on to beat Niwot 10-2 to claim the 4A
state title. And while Green Mountain outscored their opponents 19-3 on Saturday and nearly every player had a hot stick, it was outstanding pitching that sealed the championship for the Rams. Green Mountain junior pitcher Talon Schaller single-handedly — or singlearm-idly — pitched his way to the Rams’ title, throwing a complete game two-hitter against Longmont.
Having only thrown 72 total pitches against Longmont, Madden decided to start him against Niwot in the championship game and Schaller picked up where he left off throwing five more innings against Niwot, giving up only two more hits. Schaller threw 12 innings in total on Saturday, striking out 12 batters and putting an exclamation point on Green Mountain’s championship season. The Rams (20-7, 9-5 in league) wrap up
their season as 4A’s best team, even though they were only the second best team in 4A Jeffco this season. Wheat Ridge won the league championship and was looked at as the most likely team out of 4A Jeffco to make a run at a state title. Well, Green Mountain would definitely trade a league title for a state title, and after their incredible playoff run there is no doubt that the Rams are the state’s best.
