New home, goals for Rocky Flats museum Olde Town site on mission to collect oral history By Clarke Reader

T

he Rocky Flats Cold War Museum has a new location, new name and a new mission. Now operating under the name of the Rocky Flats Institute and Museum, it is now located in the Jehn Center at 5690 Webster St. in Olde Town Arvada. According to Connie Bogaard, the museum’s executive director, the move is a temporary one to help save money for a building of their own, which can be dedicated to exhibits and preserving the history of the Rocky Flats plant. The museum is preparing to launch a capital campaign to raise money for a permanent site for the museum. The initial campaign will be for $2.5 million, and Bogaard said the museum has created a new website that makes donating easier, has created more fundraising options — including a mobile exhibit that could visit places like the Arvada Center and History Colorado Center — and partnerships to help raise money. “We will continue with our temporary exhibits here, and will keep working to collect oral histories from people who used to work at Rocky Flats,” Bogaard said. “That’s really the most important thing we’re trying to do here, because every story is unique and contribute’s to Rocky Flat’s history.” The museum’s new mission — which is reflected in the name change — is to make the museum a place where people can come to put the work done at Rocky Flats, and the Cold War, in the proper global context, and discuss the modern nuclear situation. “We want to be able to engage in conversations about what it meant to live by Rocky Flats, the ideas proposed for the land and the toll road that would go near-

The newest will open in October, and will focus on the workers at Rocky Flats in the 1950s. Helping out with the exhibit — and the museum as a whole — are former Rocky Flats employees Ken Freiberg, Jack Weaver and Gene McCracken, who meet every Wednesday at the museum. “We want to help educated older people and younger people, especially the younger people, many of whom have not even heard of Rocky Flats,” Freiberg said.

“We want to try to tell both sides, but that can be difficult.” Freiberg added that people who worked at Rocky Flats help nearby cities, from Arvada to Westminster and Louisville, grow. McCracken said it’s important that people should not forget the Cold War, what it meant and how it changed the lives for countless people the world over. “There were a lot of misconceptions about the plant, how it was and what we did there,” Weaver said. “We’re now able to tell people about some of that, show what we and others did, and why they did it.” For more information on the museum, visit www.rockyflatsmuseum.org.

The Austin Sigg trial may or may not end up in Jefferson County. During the Aug. 29 motions hearing, Judge Stephen Munsinger ruled that he will make his decision whether or not to grant a change of venue to the defense during the jury selection process, which begins on Sept. 20. “I don’t know if we can seat a fair and impartial jury. I won’t know that until the jurors get here,” Munsinger said. “I want to acknowledge the defense for their efforts in keeping information out of the public domain.” Munsinger’s decision came after a long testimony from Paul Talmey with Talmey-Drake Research and Strategy Inc. who conducted a survey of potential jurors. Talmey and a team of trained interviewers conducted 707 phone interviews throughout Colorado, with 303 of them done in Jefferson Sigg County, 203 of them done in the metro area and 201 of them done outside of the metro area. Those surveyed were asked over 20 questions, beginning with screener questions followed by questions regarding the abduction and murder of Jessica Ridgeway and the Sigg case. Talmey testified that his findings from the survey showed a high use of social media, like Facebook and Twitter, as a means of information gained on the case by those interviewed. “There’s a difference between getting information through a passive form and an active form and in terms of this case people are activity involved with the case,” Talmey said. “Whether it’s through email or making comments on Facebook or Twitter, people aren’t just acknowledging the case, they are involved.” Talmey said according to his findings, those interviewed in Jefferson County had a “very high awareness of the crime” and that the crime “rang a bell with people.” He said the recognition of the crime from people surveyed was much higher in Jefferson County than it was outside the county. He suggested to the judge to change the venue of the trial. “I’d say it will be hard to seat an impartial and fair jury in Jefferson County and the metro area,” Talmey said. “There are too many people with too much information.” Also during the hearing, Munsinger Sigg continues on Page 16

Display puts hunger in the picture The 22 8-by-10-inch photographs are simply set in a display case in the airy lobby of the Denver Public Library’s central branch. On an early Saturday afternoon, men and women, old and young, stroll by on the marble floors. A few glance at the images — portrayals of lives lived with hunger — but so far today no one stops. Most never see the stories just beyond the glass, much the way many never see the hunger hidden among us every day. “It’s something I hear a lot since I’ve been talking to people about poverty — `You’re not the average homeless person; you’re not the average hungry person,’” says Caroline Pooler, 53, who came to know hunger and homelessness after losing her job two years ago. Three of the photographs in the case are hers. “There really is no average hungry or homeless person. They can be someone who’s working full-time and they’re not going to get lunch that day because they have to give lunch to their kids.” Caroline and nine other women are participating in Hunger Through My Lens, an innovative project by the advocacy organization Hunger Free Colorado that gave them digital cameras to document how they see a world without consistent and healthy sustenance. The goal is simple, project manager Lauren Flax says: Give the experts, those who know what it’s like to be hungry, a platform to

voice their opinions and help shape answers to what should be a solvable issue. “We really believe there is a solution to ending hunger,” Flax says. “Just as there are many solutions, there needs to be multiple people coming up with them. Who better than the hungry?” The women are a diverse group. They are Latino, African-American and white, ranging in age from 22 to late 60s. They are mothers and grandmothers in Jefferson and Adams counties, Denver and Aurora. Some have lived in systemic poverty since they were children. Some live an “average, normal, middle-class life but they go to bed hungry every night, hiding it even from their church groups,” Flax says. Some have made bad choices, either through lack of education, access to resources or circumstances. But all share the common denominator of having experienced the isolating and

desperate hunger that comes when you don’t know how or when you’ll have your next meal. Through their photographs, they hope to provide a glimpse for others — perhaps a dawning understanding — into that world. “It’s a way to put faces to statistics,” Flax says. “It’s easy to forget a number. It’s a lot harder to forget a face or a story.” First, the statistics, compiled from various federal and state reports: • One in six Americans in the U.S., and nearly one in four children, are food-insecure. • More than 25 percent of working families in Colorado don’t have enough food to meet basic needs. • An estimated 270,000 children in Colorado, or 22 percent of all children, live in food-insecure households. • Colorado has the fastest-growing rate of childhood poverty in the country. The numbers are astonishing. And here are Caroline’s stories, told in her photographs, which she titled: • “Reverse Disparity,” a photograph of two banana clumps. One is full, fresh and smooth yellow, selling for 59 cents a pound in a grocery store in an affluent neighborhood. The other is in a smaller, privately owned grocery 30 blocks away in a neighborhood considered a “food desert” because it has no large supermarkets offering healthy options within a mile. These three bananas are slightly bruised, for sale at 89 cents a pound. “I’m certainly not faulting that grocer,” Caroline says. “We need that grocer in that area.” But lower quality food for higher prices is the reality. • “Farming for Food Sustenance for the Heart.” A close-up of an orange nasturtium, taken in an urban garden in which Caroline was working. “I really did find that while I was on my hands and knees trying to feed myself, people in suits and briefcases were looking in and wishing that was them. I am the lucky one in so many ways,” she says, “pulling my food from the ground.” • “Ancestral Meals.” A photo of a Cambodian family’s ceremonial meal, spread out in bowls and prepared in honor of ancestors for a holiday. “It’s an inside look at the diversity of the culture here in Denver and Colorado and how those cultural food needs must be met as well,” Caroline says. Although Caroline began struggling when she lost her job working in a medical research office, she initially resisted applying for food stamps, turning instead to urban gardening as a way to feed herself. She took the bottle cap- and cigarette-strewn lot of

a friend and began tilling and planting the soil until it flowered into an organic garden in which she harvests tomatoes for a nearby bodega, and lettuce, squash, eggplants and green beans for herself. A nonprofit restaurant, which operates on donations, uses her produce to cook her lunch. Local food banks also helped. But last November, one turned her and others away when it ran out of food. The memory still brings tears. “I just walked down the street and cried, more so for the thought of the moms that were turned away.” Shortly after that, she applied for food stamps. And “it has been a blessing to go to the grocery store and really meet my nutritional needs.” An artist also, she considers her work with Hunger Free Colorado among her most important. The organization offers training on how to advocate for hunger issues before local governments and agencies to those who, like Caroline, want their voices to be heard and want to make a lasting difference for others in their shoes. In October, Caroline starts a school program she hopes will lead to a job that can provide her with the stability to provide not only for herself, but also for her 24-year-old son, who despite his job still finds himself hungry at times. “I would like to buy groceries every two weeks and take them over to his house,” she says — just the way she used to. Back at the exhibit at the library, a woman glances at the photographs as she walks by. She slows down, and backtracks for a closer look. The photo of a hand-scrawled sign — “Will Work 4 Food” - caught her attention. “It just made me want to look,” Susan Wolinsky, 71, a retired lawyer, says. “I just think it’s pretty sad that in this country people don’t have enough to eat … People who have full stomachs have a better chance of being productive citizens and of helping others.” She was surprised to find out she was one of only two passersby in an hour who had studied the exhibit, which will travel to four Adams County libraries, the 16th Street Mall in Denver and Hunger Free Colorado’s Oct. 1 Hunger Summit. “It’s too bad,” Wolinsky says, “that some of the photographs aren’t on billboards towering over the city so that people have no choice but to look at them.” Indeed. That would put big faces on the big numbers that are hunger in Colorado. Ann Macari Healey’s column about people, places and issues of everyday life appears every other week.

Arvada candidates get first round of questions Chamber of Commerce forum tackles incentives, marijuana By Clarke Reader

creader@ourcoloradonews.com The candidates in the 2013 City Council race all seem to be in agreement about some of the key issues facing the city. The candidates answered questions about incentive use to attract businesses, marijuana prohibition and support of the Jeffco beltway at the Arvada Chamber of Commerce candidate forum. The forum was held at the Arvada Center on Aug. 30, and gave those running a chance to answer questions as official candidates. For the councilmember atlarge race, incumbent Don Allard and Ascenzo Di Giacomo were on hand, as well as District 3 candidates John Marriott, Ted Terranova and Justin Vicory, and incumbent Rachel Zenzinger, who is running

unopposed for District 1. All five candidates were given the same five questions and had two minutes to answer each. Since she is running unopposed, Zenzinger spoke at the end of the forum about her goals for the city. All five candidates voiced their support of incentives to attract businesses to the city, though they all urged that caution should be used, and that council should look at it on a case-by-case basis. “We have to do it — it’s a matter of competition in the market,” Terranova said. Vicory added that it is a matter of creating business opportunities that will end up benefiting the city and growing in the future. A question regarding transferring operational control of the Arvada Center to a nonprofit foundation was met by skepticism by the candidates, mostly because not a lot of information has been shared about the idea. Terranova said the issue came down to money and control, com-

paring the center to a “loss leader” — a business term that even though may lose money, brings in other benefits. All of the candidates agree that waiting to see how other communities across the state handle marijuana would be a wise move, and so do not currently advocate allowing marijuana to be sold in the city. “I would like to see how it is handled in other places, and I don’t think it’s just about us in council, but we should go out to the community and see how they feel,” Di Giacomo said. Marriott said the will of the people on Amendment 64 is absolutely clear, and so in the future the city will certainly need to take a closer look at allowing these kinds of businesses, but said that now is not the time. The candidates all seemed happy with the direction the city is heading in now, and when asked about their vision for the city, many voiced a desire to continue

along the same path, with some renewed area of focus. The city has undertaken a revision of its comprehensive plan, and these areas could perhaps receive more attention in a new plan. Allard said the city the city needs to focus on taking care of what it has, while Di Giacomo said that he would like to see transportation issues get more attention. Marriott expressed an interest in seeing neighborhoods being protected, and Terranova said the comprehensive plan should be really indicative of what the community wants. “I’d like to see more youth injected into the community,” Vicory said. “We have low income housing, but we need places for people to work, too. The average drive to work for an Arvada citizen is 26 miles, and I’d like to see that come down.” All the candidates expressed support for the completion of the Jeffco beltway.

Hope House celebrates 10 years of service By Ashley Reimers

areimers@ourcoloradonews.com Just 10 years ago Lisa Steven opened the doors of Hope House to teen moms offering them a place of refuge and support. Now years later Steven, her staff and many volunteers are helping over 110 teen moms a year in the Denver-metro area get on their feet and move closer to a self-sufficient life. “In July 2003 our first teen mom walked through the newly opened doors of Hope House’s Residential Program with her baby girl, a broken car seat and a trash bag full of clothes,” said Steven, the executive director. “I never dreamed that 10 years later Hope House would become a community of hundreds of volunteers and staff to help teen mothers in our community build stable lives for their little ones.” Hope House is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping disadvantaged teen moms become self-sufficient. The organization has a residential program in Arvada sheltering teen moms who are homeless or living in unsafe environments, and also has a resource center in Westminster which opened this January. The center is focused on providing programs on mentoring, the GED, parenting and healthy relationships and also features a learning lab. Staff, past and current moms and city officials celebrated the 10-year anniversary

The daughter of a Hope House teen mom enjoys having her face painted during the 10-year anniversary celebration on Aug. 22. Courtesy Photo of Hope House Aug. 22 in the outdoor pavilion of Heritage Community Bible Church in Arvada with food, music and children’s activities. “Hope House was appropriately named,” said Westminster Mayor Nancy McNally during the celebration. “The young women are given hope in so many ways: encouragement, educational

opportunities, counseling, mentoring, help learning to be a parent, and support to become the person they were born to be.” Steven said it’s been a privilege making relationships with so many young ladies and seeing them grow over the years and become self-sufficient women, some buying homes and starting careers. With Hope House as metro-Denver’s

only resource for providing teen moms free residential programs as well as many other support services, Steven said it’s her goal to partner with other organizations to expand services and resources to teen moms nationally and internationally. “Our focus in not so much on building on serving more girls ourselves,” she said. “We want to develop partnerships where we can all work together and learn from each other because there are very little private organizations out there serving parenting teen moms.” One thing that is expanding at Hope House is the programming. Recently a new program was developed called the Career Partner Program, which connects teen moms to employers in the community to help teen moms gain more experience in the job world. Steven said in order for a teen mom to survive on her own, she needs to make at least $12 an hour, which is tough to achieve with a teen mom’s hectic schedule and lack of job experience. “We are really looking for businesses to go out on a limb with a young lady who may have challenges in her life and give them an internship to help them and show them how to have a job,” she said. “That way the internship can be on their resume and they can make it to the next step of getting a real job or career.” For more information on Hope House or volunteer opportunities, visit www.hopehouseofcolorado.org.

Backpack scare stops school Staff Report An attempt to recreate an online video stunt led to the evacuation of Swanson Elementary School (6000 block W. 68th Ave.) in Arvada on Aug. 28. Jeffco School District spokeswoman Lynn Setzer said a backpack had been found at the school with a “strange odor.” Arvada Fire and Police PIO Jill McGranahan said “a youngster who had stated that he’d brought ‘something’ to school,” was associated with the backpack. School officials pulled a fire alarm at 9:26 a.m., and later contacted fire and police about the backpack situation. “The school was immediately evacuated, and according to the principal, it went smoothly,” Setzer said. The 490-student body of Swanson congregated in the school’s large outdoor field area while the city’s HazMat team investigated the backpack. “It ended up being benign baking soda and vinegar,” McGranahan said. She added that the student in question — identified only as being 9 years old by the school — was trying to recreate a chemical reaction he had seen in an online video.

County to ask residents about Jeffco5 Telephone conference planned this fall By Amy Woodward

awoodward@ourcoloradonews.com Jefferson County commissioners will be dialing out to Jeffco residents to get their stance on the Jeffco 5 initiative, along with other topics this fall, during a town hall phone conference. Residents however will not be able to dial in during the conference. The issue of receiving public feedback or to move forward on a decision was long debated during the commissioner’s staff briefing on Aug. 27. An official date for the town hall phone conference has not been scheduled but should take place no later than early October, according to Kathryn Heider, PIO for the board of county commissioners. The Jeffco 5 initiative seeks to increase the number of county commissioners from three to five, with a measure placed on the ballot for 2014.

If passed, Jeffco would see a redistricting in 2015, with county commissioners running for election in 2016, and officially functioning as a five member board in 2017. Operating costs and capital costs totals anywhere from $725,000 to $750,000, according to county administrator Ralph Schell who recommended that commissioners do not go forward with the initiative due to budget constraints and the budgets unpredictability for the year 2017 when the costs are implemented. District 2 commissioner Tighe requested public opinion on the matter before the commissioners make their decision. The deadline for county commissioners to refer the initiative on the ballot is July 2014, although commissioners would like to make a decision long before next summer. “It’s important to have a dialogue with the citizens,” Tighe said. “With the amount of interest we’ve seen in it, I would like to get more input.” Commissioner Tighe advocated for public hearing along with a telephone town hall conference in order to gather public input.

“I think it’s a debate that the county should have, do the people of the county want to have smaller districts and more representation, are they willing to pay for that?” Tighe said. “Those are facts that I don’t feel I have to make a decision on.” “Even in hearings, if we have a full group of people and that whole hearing room is filled with people ... that does not make the decision on what maybe the outcome is,” Commissioner Griffin said. “Each commissioner votes the way they feel is for the future, they will take into consideration what has been said.” As staff coordinates a date for the dial out telephone town hall, the members of Jeffco 5 were not pleased with the outcome of the discussion, specifically, a denial for a public forum in which residents can show up and voice their concerns to the commissioners. “I was just floored,” said Jeffco 5 member Bernie McDowell. “Jefferson county voters are being denied even the ability to make this decision. They should not have the right to keep this from being heard,” McDowell said.

opinions / yours and ours

‘Twerked’ by rewarding bad behavior One of the great “takeaways” I got from a brief study of “Parenting With Love and Logic” a few years ago was the idea that behaviors that get reinforced get repeated. I’ve been thinking about that a lot over the past week. Consider a recent Denver-area tragedy: the 6-game suspension of Broncos’ linebacker Von Miller. One thing I heard in the days after that was that, according to union rules, the only way for that to be a possible penalty would be if this were Miller’s third offense. So a phenomenally talented player has already, by the time he’s 24, had three drug “events,” including one that happened after he knew he was going to be tested every three days. This young man was drafted second overall, and handed $21 million, even though there was likely a drug event around that time. He became one of the most dominant players in the NFL and earned fame and adulation, also while, apparently, enjoying his drug issues. So exactly where in this

whole scheme is there incentive for him to change? Sure, the six-game suspension is going to hit him in the wallet, but all will be forgiven the first time he rides an opposing quarterback to the turf. Act, reinforce, repeat. Then consider the odd phenomenon of Kim Kardashian. I have yet to figure out exactly what talents this young lady possesses, what barriers she has busted through or what accomplishments she has racked up. And yet, there she is, staring back at me

from the covers of five different magazines in the checkout aisle, and all because her very public life is a bit of a train wreck. Of course, we’re talking about someone who vaulted to fame because of a sex tape and has remained in the public eye thanks to the phenomenon of “reality” TV, which, in the best traditions of Jerry Springer, encourages and rewards people for engaging in the most outrageous sociopathic behavior in front of cameras. We, the public, are the reinforcing mechanism. So, consider how you would view the world if during your formative years your every word was greeted with a laugh track, you had instant fame without any accomplishments, and your slightly-above-average musical skills were the headline act of sold out concert tours all over the world. Why, it’s just possible that you might think that the normal boundaries of decent behavior not only don’t apply to you, but don’t exist at all! Miley Cyrus’ antics at the Video Music Awards are not the result of lax parenting,

or exploitation by a media empire, though those both certainly contributed. No, I think, as easy as it is to blame Dad and Disney, I think we really should be looking in the mirror. Disney did not create Miley Cyrus — parents buying her albums and concert tickets for their kids, normal folks like us letting our young girls buy her style and watch her show, created this Miley Cyrus. In effect, we are all Billy Ray Cyrus. And this sort of celebrity worship has consequences. I mean, seriously, if we don’t get this under control, next thing you know we’re going to elect a president with no military or foreign policy experience, no executive experience, and no legislative achievements, all because he or she has a pleasant oratorical style. Oh, wait ... Michael Alcorn is a music teacher and fitness instructor who lives in Arvada with his wife and three children. He graduated from Alameda High School and the University of Colorado-Boulder.

My friends Tony and Catherine decided a few years ago that they wanted to marry themselves ... not just each other. Tony and Catherine entered into legal wedlock, without clergy or judicial presence, by conducting the ceremony themselves, which is also known as a self-uniting marriage, where the couple are married without a third-party officiant. Colorado law allows such couples to perform their own marriages. The two simply indicate this on the marriage certificate, and sign where the clergy or judicial officer would, and then sign again as “bride” and “groom.” Witnesses aren’t even necessary either, but the newlyweds do need to return the marriage certificate for recording no later than 63 days from the date of solemnization. Tony and Catherine first obtained a marriage license at the Division of Motor Vehicles, and then wrote and exchanged their own vows in the presence of family and friends, which constituted their entire self-uniting ceremony. Another couple who are friends of mine had a Hindu ceremony some months later — which they considered to be spiritual rather than religious — to allow others to celebrate with them after they had legally self-solemnized their marriage. However, self-marriage participants don’t need any kind of ceremony at all — no judge, no clergy, no justice of the peace. They can sign the marriage certificate right in the building where they got their license and file it immediately with the clerk and recorder. I’m intrigued with this concept of a selfuniting marriage, and why it makes such a profound statement. For example, for a couple to write their own vows is nice, but not unique to self-marriage. And it’s not just the novelty of having a simple ceremony like Tony’s and Catherine’s; with costs spiraling out of the realm of reality, and the increasing stress of planning a big wedding these days, many couples are scaling back. Even celebrities are eloping.

Tony and Catherine chose self-marriage because they wanted their union to be civil instead of religious, and with as little judicial involvement as possible. As Tony says, though, they had to involve the government because they filed their signed marriage certificate with the state. And, of course, the “legal” part of “legally married” includes, at a minimum, the oversight of the judicial system for the benefit and protection of all parties. This entrance of the state also occurs after a religious ceremony, too, and self-uniting marriages need not be secular, by any means. But I like that the state comes in after the fact, recognizing what the two people in the marriage have already made happen. Colorado is one of only two or three states that recognize a self-solemnized ceremony. This doesn’t mean the marriage is not valid in other states, although insurance companies and such might require a certified copy of the marriage certificate. But what I find particularly moving about two people such as Catherine and Tony who choose to enter a self-uniting marriage is that they are establishing — confirming, really — that the path they are about to travel is truly in their hands. Do you think that assuming the responsibility for your own union is a good way to declare your intentions for a life together? I do.

Crunch time at hand for Morse, Giron Recall elections sparked by gun-control measures By Vic Vela

vvela@ourcoloradonews.com The term “the third rail of American politics” has long been associated with talk about cutting Social Security — a charged issue that could lead to severe consequences for any elected official who dares to touch it. But soon, a couple of Colorado Democrats could end up learning the hard way about another “third rail” issue, as they face recall elections over their votes on gun legislation that was passed this year. The stakes couldn’t be higher for John Morse of Colorado Springs, who is the Senate president, and state Sen. Angela Giron of Pueblo. And their potential ousters could have lasting ramifications in the state and across the nation. “The message could be that it is just political poison to support any form of gun control, no matter how reasonable it may look to people,” said Bob Loevy, a political scientist at Colorado College. “If either is eliminated, the message is going to be: No matter how big or politically

strong you are, you can be knocked out over gun issues,” Loevy said. Morse and Giron are the first lawmakers to face a recall in Colorado. Their districtonly elections are scheduled for Sept. 10. Both supported legislation that requires universal background checks on all gun sales in the state, and were behind a separate law that places limits on high-capacity ammunition magazines — such as the ones used in mass killings at an Aurora theater and at Connecticut’s Sandy Hook Elementary School. Morse also sponsored a bill that would have placed liability on assault weapon owners and manufacturers whose guns are used in crimes. However, Morse ended up killing his own legislation. Republicans were unanimous in their opposition to the gun bills. The gun debate stirred passions like no other issue this legislative session. “In my seven years in office, I’ve never seen an issue have this kind of emotion,” said Rep. Frank McNulty, R-Highlands Ranch, a former House speaker. That’s about the only area of gun legislation that McNulty and state Sen. Evie Hudak agree on. The Westminster Democrat voted for each one of her party’s gun-control bills this session. Her own bill, which placed stricter limits on domestic violence offenders’ access to guns, also became law. “I received so many threatening emails,

with extremely bad language used against me,” Hudak said. “My best friend thought I should wear a bulletproof vest.” Recall organizers initially targeted Hudak as well, but that effort failed. Since then, Hudak says she’s been knocking on doors in Pueblo and Colorado Springs, in support of her colleagues’ efforts to thwart the “ludicrous” attempts at recall. Hudak and state Sen. Linda Newell, DLittleton, point out that Morse is term-limited and will be out at the end of next year, regardless of what happens Sept. 10. Giron is up for re-election next year. “If it’s just about a vote, you have elections and term limits,” Newell said. “It’s not a wise use of taxpayer dollars. We take about a thousand votes every single session. If you are recalled over every single vote? Oh my gosh. It would be dysfunctional.” But McNulty believes that recalls are “a longstanding right in the state of Colorado.” McNulty also notes that, for as much attention as the recall elections are getting, they

are rare and difficult to pursue. “I don’t think people take this lightly,” he said. “But if (elected officials) are out of step with their district, then the recall election should be there.” Like Loevy, McNulty thinks the recalls could have a lasting impact on future guncontrol efforts. “I think it certainly does send a message to folks who push policies that infringe on law-abiding citizens’ ability to hold firearms, that you will need to think twice,” McNulty said. Newell disagrees. “I’m not concerned about the policy issues at all,” she said. “The recalls send a message of fringe, special-interest groups being obtrusive.” Regardless of what happens, a precedent may already be set. “People are going to realize that there is this other way of punishing politicians over doing something they don’t like,” Loevy said.

The once and future king Arvada Center brings King Arthur back to life

IF YOU GO WHAT: “Camelot” WHERE: Arvada Center

By Clarke Reader

6901 Wadsworth Blvd., Arvada

“Don’t let it be forgot That once there was a spot, For one brief, shining moment That was known as Camelot.” The Arvada Center, 6901 Wadsworth Blvd., is bringing back to life that one brief, shining moment along with King Arthur, Lancelot, Guinevere with its production of Lerner and Loewe’s “Camelot.” The musical opens up the center’s 37th season, and runs Sept. 10-29. Performances are Tuesdays through Saturdays at 7:30 p.m., Wednesdays at 1 p.m. and Saturdays and Sundays at 2 p.m. “I wanted to go back to the original text (T.H. White’s “The Once and Future King”) for this version, and really treat it like historical fiction,” said director Rod A. Lansberry. “This applied to things like costume design and the different accents of the knights.” Lansberry also cast younger actors than people may expect, because in reality the life expectancy of the time was around 35 to 40 years old, so everyone would have been younger during these events. “Camelot” tells the story of King Arthur’s (David Bryant Johnson) legendary Round Table and the knights who came from all over the country to try to forge a new world order, one where might makes

right gives way to might for right. “The knights are really struggling with the changes that Arthur is proposing,” Lansberry said. “They’re also coming from all over the country, so you have this group of people who are very eclectic and concerned with their own plans. Arthur has to bring all these disparate people together to create something new.” Johnson said that throughout the production, audiences will see Arthur age as the burdens of trying to keep these fragile ties intact wear him down. “The great thing about this production is Rod embraced the fact that these people came from all these different places,” Johnson said. “We worked with a dialect coach to give actors different accents, and it just adds an amazing layer of variety to these knights.” Of course, the other thing that is wear-

ing Arthur down is the affair between his queen, Guinevere (Melissa Mitchell) and his best friend, Lancelot (Glenn Seven Allen). “‘Camelot’ really is the story of Arthur, Lancelot and Guinevere, and how these three people try to make sense of their relationships and how they develop as people,” Lansberry said. “All three deeply love each other, and they’re constantly questioning each other and their motives.” Johnson said that one the things he finds most admirable about Arthur is the pain he puts up with to keep his new idea of chivalry alive. “Arthur is willing to spare the lives of the two people he loves so much — and in the process cause himself a lot of pain, and he lives with that pain so he can ensure that his idea isn’t a fraud,” Johnson said. Both Johnson and Lansberry said that the production brings a sense of realism to “Camelot” that has been lacking in some versions of the story. “The armor is pretty amazing — it’s hard to understand how people were able to move so fast in it,” Johnson said. “When you put on a costume like that, it really is like putting on someone else’s skin.” This is the “Camelot” people are familiar with, but Lansberry said, it has a few twists to make it more engaging. “I wanted to make sure to give the audience what they want, but I also needed to give a better story, so they understand and identify, not just watch” Lansberry said. “This is a fresh, new version that is more realistic, and I think will really draw them in.”

Fossil Trace Golf Course in Golden is listed among the “10 most unusual U.S. golf courses,” according to Forbes magazine contributor Larry Olmsted. The writer raves about course designer Jim Engh, calling him “one of my favorite golf architects and way underrated by the general public, though the industry holds him in high acclaim.” Olmstead also notes Fossil Creek’s preservation of rustic mining equipment and the history lesson the course provides with prehistoric dinosaur tracks through holes 11 to 15 left some 64 million years ago. “Triceratops footprints have been well marked next to the 12th green so golfers can take a look, and more fossils, plaster footprint casts, and ancient history are in the clubhouse,” Olmstead notes. He forgets the great views the course offers from every direction, especially from holes No. 1 and 10, and the commune next to the 16th tee box.

PGA Tour is on the ball

The PGA Tour is not run by a slew of stooges. Witness the television commercial already out touting the 2014 BMW Championships, part of the FedEx Cup playoff tournament series that will be played at Cherry Hills Country Club in Cherry Hills Village. The advertisement features four of Denver’s best-known sports figures, from the Broncos: John Elway, Peyton Manning and John Lynch and ex-Denver Nuggets star Chauncey Billups (now with the Detroit Pistons but a Denver resident and native). So Todd Helton and Joe Sakic are chopped liver? The BMW Championship is the next to the last tournament of the FedEx Cup series that narrows the field to the final 30 that play at The TOUR Championship the following week. Next year’s BMW Championship will be played Sept. 4-7 at Cherry Hills. Tickets are already available at https://tickettapp.com/wms/buy/ bmw/2014 for the 2014 BMW Championship.

Senior Peer Counseling Parker throws residents a lifeline Continued from Page 14

Volunteers work with seniors who are lonely, frail By Clarke Reader

creader@ourcoloradonews.com Jefferson Center for Mental Health is offering people interested in helping seniors a chance to join the Senior Peer Counselor program. The program has been offered by the center for several years, but has really ramped up in popularity in the past couple years. “This is a great opportunity for people who want to give back to the community, but may not be sure the best way to,” said Liz Smith, program director with the Jefferson Center. “When we first started the program we wanted our volunteers to be older adults, but we’ve found there are benefits to having young people participate as well.” Volunteers do not need any experience, other than a desire to help. Training to be a counselor will be on Tuesdays from 10 a.m. to noon, from Tuesday, Sept. 17, through Tuesday, Oct. 29, at 7878 N. Wadsworth Blvd., in Arvada. “The training helps people understand a lot of different areas, and what many of these seniors may be going through. There is a mental health 10 portion and information on self-care, anxiety and depression,” Smith said. “Participants also learn about healthy aging and confidentiality.” The training is on-going once participants pass,

Smith added, so counselors will always have someone available to help and guide them if needed. Once they are trained, counselors works with seniors who are frail, isolated and often times have difficulty getting out of the house. “For some of these people, socializing is really difficult, so our counselors give them a kind of lifeline, so they’re not on their own,” Smith said. “They give the seniors emotional support and sometimes do what we call live reviews, which is a structured talk about their lives, and the counselors help the seniors work to resolve old resentments and conflicts.” Mariane Neff, senior peer counselor, said she became interested due to her background of helping people. “After I retired, I still felt like I had something to offer people, and I’m still active with the program, and still enjoy it,” she said. Neff said that most of the seniors she has worked with have been at their homes, but in some cases she works to get them out of the house a little more. “Doing this you really feel like you’re doing something useful,” Neff said. “It’s great to see someone move forward and get better.” Smith said that seniors in the community should know this program is available for people who need help, and people interested in helping should know there is a chance for them to do some good for older people. For more details and an application packet, contact Roberta Mangin, program coordinator at 303432-5745.

Education at the water’s edge

ch on 42. a fam, and hores. s lts: us ill panyewing By Ashley Reimers cludes areimers@ourcoloradonews.com n at Editor’s Note: This is the third story of a ssion three-part series highlighting the educationted al programming at Standley Lake Regional e., Park in Westminster. The first story focused on the history and the second story focused on recreation.

Standley Lake classes expand, offer educations for young and old

Wheat Whether it’s learning about bald eagles s or the importance of snake awareness, m. there are a variety of educational opportuclass nities at Standley Lake. est are This summer alone featured many free , and programs for children and adults offering ces the public a glimpse into the history, nature s pain and joys of the Westminster park. 1300 As an urban park, Standley Lake is a n. place where people in the city can leave the traffic and street lights behind, and enter into a world of nature without having to rain- drive miles and miles to get there. Taking ndays advantage of the close proximity to the city, ner is Holly Walters, senior ranger at the park, said s in it’s a great opportunity for park staff to eduning- cate the community on the outdoors. She said one of the goals of the programs is to help people be aware of what’s at the park and help take out any fear a person may have about the outdoors. “Here at Standley lake, we really enjoy the interaction with the public and we enjoy teaching them about what the park offers so that they can come back on their own and enjoy themselves,” she said. “Especially for children, we believe it’s important to teach them about nature so they catch the bug early on. Plus it gets them away from the television and the video games.” Peggy Boccard, recreation services manager for the city, said the education pro-

Phil Taylor, education and interpretation specialist at Standley Lake Regional Park, teaches some children how to bait a hook during the Fascinated with Fishing program on Aug. 24. Photo by Ashley Reimers grams were quite popular this summer and were well-attended. Some of the programs included: Discovering Bald eagles, which gave people an “up-close” look at the resident eagles of the park, the Edible Forage Walk, which gave people a guided tutorial on wild edibles in the park and the Birds of Standley Lake, which taught people about the large variety of bird species in the park. The snake

awareness program, which taught about the different species of the snakes in the park and in Colorado, was a big hit with 48 attendees. “We want to offer different types of activities and programs so that many people can come out and enjoy the park through our educational opportunities,” Boccard said. “This year we worked hard to expand the programs at the park by dedicating more

staff to the programming as well as increasing our marketing efforts.” The latest program, Fascinated with Fishing, was dedicated just to the little ones ages six to 12 and featured an extensive lesson on fishing. The children learned how to tie a hook, what it means to be an ethical angler, how to handle a fish and the anatomy of a fish. Each child went home with their one fishing pole and even had the opportunity to catch some fish at Loon Lake, a small lake just behind the Standley Lake Dam. Phil Taylor, interpretation and educational specialist at Standley Lake, taught the program, with some help from a couple other rangers. He said it’s a great feeling watching the kids learn a new skill, and especially catch a fish. He said this summer he’s seen a few kids come back for multiple programs. “I really just want kids to come out, have fun and ask questions. As long as a kid learns one thing, it’s all worth it to me,” he said. “Plus these programs allow the kids to come and experience the park, which is great.” Boccard said she is also working on cross-promoting different programs that connect Standley Lake to other recreational programs in the city. For example, this summer there was a water color art class at Standley Lake as well as a yoga class. “I want to look at other opportunities for programs at the park that aren’t just environmental or nature-oriented because the park has so much to offer,” Boccard said. “We want to get more utilization out of the park, develop more trails and other landbased recreational opportunities.” The next educational program is Be a Ranger for the Day and will give children ages six to 12 a look at what life is like for a Standley Lake ranger. The three-hour free program begins at 1 p.m. on Sept. 28. Standley Lake Regional Park is on the western edge of Westminster at 100th Avenue and Simms Street.

Actually, the players fought their way back into the game to made it interesting in the second half.

But Golden responded to everything successful that the Panthers did, and even though Pomona played very well during stretches the Demons were simply better. “We expect to come out and play the way we did today in every single one of our games. If we can do that we could be a pretty special team,” Golden coach Josh Nolker said. Golden looked like they might blow out the Panthers early in the first half, scoring a pair of goals. One of those goals was an absolute laser by junior Mark Seaholm. But the Panthers certainly were not going to give up. Instead they started to get physical with Golden, drawing multiple yellow cards but also throwing the Demons off their game in the process. Golden would get chippy back but at the

wrong time, and it cost them a penalty kick. Pomona senior Dillon Fee would barely convert the goal and just like that the Panthers were one goal away from tying the action. “Even though we were down we never felt like we were out of the game. I love the way our guys kept working hard, we just didn’t catch a break today,” Pomona coach Mike Askin said. Not only did Pomona not catch a break, but only forty seconds after cutting into Golden’s 2-1 lead, the Panthers saw the score change to 3-1 when Demons senior Donald Baiden converted a header off a corner kick that will likely go down as one of the prettier Golden goals scored of the entire season. “We have a lot of weapons and the po-

tential to be a really good team. Pomona is a really good 5A team, so we feel good about the win,” Golden assistant coach Aaron Manahan said. Still, the Panthers played a solid game and even controlled some of the action at times. Golden had simply jumped on them early and the Panthers couldn’t overcome the deficit. Pomona still looked like a team that expects to make the playoffs this season. “We are young, but and it will take some time, but we know we can be a really good unit this season. We will get back to work,” Askin said. Pomona (0-1) will host Eaglecrest Thursday at 4 p.m. at NAAC. Golden (1-0) will host Denver South Thursday at 6 p.m. at NAAC.

Jeffco Football Recap: D’Evelyn red-hot, Wheat Ridge hangs on Jefferson, Ralston Valley both improve to 2-0 By Daniel Williams

dwilliams@ourcoloradonews.com LAKEWOOD - Who said the D’Evelyn Jaguars wouldn’t be as dynamic offensively as they were last year? D’Evelyn has been an offensive juggernaut through two games this season racking up 95 points in two weeks. The Jaguars improved to 2-0 on the season after a 45-41 shootout victory over Mountain View on Friday. Senior quarterback Conner Mateer set the tone, 18-for-24 for 359 yards and throwing two touchdowns. He also ran for 61

yards and recorded a rushing touchdown. Senior Receiver Ty McGee caught eight balls for a ridiculous 176 receiving yards and a touchdown. D’Evelyn will play 11 a.m. Saturday when it hosts Holy Family. Wheat Ridge managed to hold off a Windsor team that just wouldn’t go away, outlasting the Wizards in a 31-22 victory Friday. The Farmers scored 14 first-quarter points and looked like they might blowout Windsor, but Wheat Ridge took its foot off the pedal offensively in the second and third quarters and led just 17-14 going into the fourth quarter. Wheat Ridge got its act together and Football continues on Page 20

“It was a complete team effort today. We scored three goals but our defense and our goaltending were equally good today,” Ocana said. Also impressive was the way Jefferson handled a 4A team in Alameda. Despite the classification the Saints were never outclassed by the Pirates.

Wheat Ridge suffers hard loss, hopes to be tougher for it Farmers miss gametying penalty kick with 35 seconds left By Daniel Williams

dwilliams@ourcoloradonews. com LAKEWOOD - It’s better to suffer a little heartache now than suffer big heartbreak in the playoffs. That is the way Wheat Ridge boys’ soccer is feeling after a 1-0 loss to Rock Canyon Thursday at Lakewood Memorial Field. Down 0-1 it looked like the Farmers hard work for 80 minutes was about to pay off when Wheat Ridge junior Max Sweeney was taken down and awarded a penalty kick with just 35 seconds left in the game. However, Sweeney’s good shot was stopped by a great save by Rock Canyon goaltender Sam Makikalli. Makikalli stopped Sweeney’s shot cold, just as Wheat Ridge thought they were going to tie the contest. “It’s a tough way to lose, but

we can keep our heads up because we played good enough to win today, it just didn’t happen,” Wheat Ridge coach Tony Thomas said. The heartbroken Sweeney was consoled by his teammates and with less than a minute left in the game the Farmers continued to fight and attempt to tie the game. But a single goal scored by Rock Canyon junior Oliver Larsson in the first half would stand up as the game-winning goal, even though if you didn’t see the score but watched the action you might think that Wheat Ridge won the game. The Farmers outshot Rock Canyon 8-5 and controlled the action and tempo for big stretches of the game. They simply could not find the back of the net and fell to a tough nonleague opponent. “We outshot them, we out worked them, we just didn’t win the game today. But that is what you get early in the season. We need to get better and we will,” Thomas said. Sweeney was visibly upset after the game but his coaches and teammates were certainly not up-
