City considers new car dealerships on Arapahoe Road Proposal would address restriction at issue in 2016 petition push BY ELLIS ARNOLD EARNOLD@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

A proposal to allow more new car dealerships on the Arapahoe Road corridor has partly revived a debate that drew opposition from more than 4,000 Centennial residents in late 2016: Should certain types of businesses be allowed to open on the major street? “No, I’m not for it,” said Tammy Maurer, a member of the Centennial City Council and one of two residents who petitioned in 2016 to keep restrictions on drive-in or drive-through restaurants, convenience stores and gas stations, car sales and rental services, and car washes. That move came in response to the city council voting 6-3 to lift those restrictions in November of that year. Under that change, the corridor, which covers East Arapahoe Road from roughly South Parker Road to South Yosemite Street, could have seen new businesses in those categories. But a petition to stop that change was submitted that December, and it garnered the more than 4,000 verified signatures necessary — 5 percent of the city’s registered voters — to force a possible citywide vote on whether to

ELLIS ARNOLD allow for the new businesses. Among the residents’ concerns was increased traffic flow on Arapahoe Road. In response, the city worked with the petitioners — Maurer and resident Jill Meakins — on a compromise passed in February 2017 that avoided the special election. The key point in that compromise was allowing for restricted businesses to open as part of a redevelopment if they’re part of a plan that involves other types of businesses — known as a “unified, master-planned development.” Under city rules, that must include at least four non-restricted businesses. A Culver’s drive-through restaurant at South Havana Street got the green light to open through that exception. But new car dealerships would still

need another go-ahead from Centennial, and the city council is considering allowing for them with a new ordinance. “There are likely only one or two parcels where we would anticipate seeing an application for a new vehicle-sales use in the future,” said Derek Holcomb, deputy director of community development for the city. If the new ordinance were to be approved, the change would apply to sections of land at least five acres in size, but factors such as zoning and vacant land limit the possibilities, Holcomb said. Only one property owner has formally expressed interest in proposing a new vehicle-sales use along the corridor, Holcomb said. Used-car dealerships would not be allowed under the new approval process. That distinction didn’t matter to Maurer, who said a problem with dealerships is that they “get in and they

stay” and use a large amount of land. “We have a lot — we have (around) 10 or 11 now” on Arapahoe Road, Maurer said. “It would be nice to see other uses.” Medical uses or offices — or recreational “fun” uses, like a trampoline club — would be preferable along the corridor, Maurer said. As of July 5, the city had received emails from about a dozen individuals objecting to the proposed ordinance, Holcomb said. One person who was opposed changed their mind and submitted a letter in support after attending a public hearing by the Centennial Planning and Zoning Commission, a body that recommends regulations pertaining to use of land in the city. At that hearing June 27, the commission recommended by a 5-1 vote that the city council should approve the ordinance. The city council on July 16 will vote on setting a public hearing that’s expected to take place Aug. 6, where the council will vote on the ordinance. As part of the city’s gathering of input for its upcoming comprehensive plan — a document that lays out a vision for how the city should develop in the future — one of the surveys given to residents asked which uses they’d prefer on Arapahoe Road, and car sales was the least supported among eight kinds of businesses, Maurer said. Grocery stores, retailers — like a cell phone store or fitness establishment — and quick-serve restaurants, including drive-throughs, were among the most-supported uses, according to that survey.

Preventing dropouts among pregnant, parenting students Programs work to ensure education for young people amid big challenges BY SHANNA FORTIER SFORTIER@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

During her sophomore year of high school, Leslie Belmontes found out she was pregnant. Not feeling like she could continue at her traditional high school, Northglenn High, Belmontes transferred to New American School in Thornton for her junior year. She thought the nontraditional school would be a better choice for her to continue her education while she prepared to become a mother. But after giving birth to her son, Aaron, during winter break, a lack of support from school staff, babysitting needs and additional medical attention for her son, who was diagnosed with Down syndrome and a heart murmur, made Belmontes feel that she couldn’t go to school anymore. She became part of the 90 percent of pregnant and parenting teens to drop out of school, according to the National Dropout Prevention Center. The center, a nonprofit based in South Carolina dedicated to increasing graduation rates, also published a self-reported study that said 28 percent of female dropouts cited pregnancy and the health concerns associated with it as the reason for dropping out of school. Another 25 percent cited becoming a mother. Lack of childcare is one of the biggest reasons for this. But some school districts in the Denver metro area are trying to cut down this percentage by providing resources for pregnant and parenting students to continue their education. Jeffco offers program In Jefferson County Public Schools, the Adolescent Pregnancy and Parenting Program is based at McLain Community High School in Lakewood. The program provides wraparound services, which include mental health support, allowing students to earn their high school diploma while also receiving parenting and child-development education. On-site day care is also provided. “It’s about removing the barriers of what am I going to do with my child and how am I going to keep going to school,” said Sara Killian, JCAPPP district nurse based at McLain. As Jeffco schools’ only teen parenting program, JCAPPP has been around for 45 years — housed in Arvada until the McLain campus opened in 2000. The program ended the 2017-18 school year with 11 active students. The nontraditional enrollment program accepts and graduates students throughout the year based on need. About 20 students utilized the program throughout the year, four of whom were young fathers. One struggle the program has is that some people within the district aren’t aware of what is offered.

PHOTOS BY SHANNA FORTIER “We’re continuously reaching out to counselors so they know where to bring students for support,” said Holly Davidson, director of the early learning center at McLain. “Some girls want to stay in their home school, but we need to not just meet them as students but also as parents.” Davidson said the peer support from other pregnant and parenting teens is something the program at McLain offers that they don’t have in a traditional high school environment. The program staff also act as mentors for the students. “Parenting is a unique experience but we still find there are similar worries,” said Katy Waskey, JCAPPP director. “I think having a mentor to work through the process gives you more confidence moving forward.” The goal of the program is to both create confident, capable parents and break barriers in teen moms earning their high school diplomas. Providing support Englewood Schools offers a similar program. With a district of about 3,000 — significantly smaller than Jeffco’s 86,000 students — Englewood did not need to utilize its pregnant and parenting program this past school year. “We haven’t had that many students use the program in recent years, but the graduation rate has increased because they have the support,” said Callan Clark, executive director of student services for Englewood Schools. Unlike Jeffco, the Englewood program is run at each of the two high schools in the district, Englewood High and Colorado’s Finest High School of Choice. District nurses take the lead teaching health and skills needed to prepare to be a mom — including parenting and first aid.

“We want to support all our kids no matter what they’re going through, and if it’s pregnancy, we want to support it,” Clark said, adding that some pregnant students throughout the years have chosen to attend Denver’s Florence Crittenton, a school specializing in education for teen moms. Florence Crittenton, a nonprofit, has a public-private partnership with Denver Public Schools for its high school, which is celebrating 35 years. The high school provides wraparound services for pregnant and parenting students ages 14 to 21 from throughout the metro area. Services include academics, post-secondary support, parenting and nutrition classes, an early childhood education center and a Denver Health center on campus. “The number one reason a teen girl drops out of school is pregnancy, so we are here to serve that population,” said Julia Goodman, marketing and communications coordinator for Florence Crittenton Services. The school, which also has open and rotating enrollment, serves about 200 students throughout the year. “We’re teaching them to be wellrounded, responsible, thoughtful members of the community here on our campus,” Goodman said. “We really are focused on that two-generation approach helping the young mother to succeed but also her child.” Down the road from Englewood, Littleton Public Schools’ alternative high school program, Options, offers nursery services to district students. “When teen parents use the nursery, they are required to take parenting classes and a parenting lab, which contributes to operating the nursery itself,” said Diane Leiker, director of communications for LPS. “Teen parents earn elective high school credit for both. The nursery helps teen

Focused on success One young mom who was able to create a cycle of success is Dakota McGrath, now 20. McGrath initially dropped out of high school after giving birth to her son, P.J., the first week of her junior year. “It was really hard to be at school and have him at home,” McGrath explained. “I wanted to be there, but I couldn’t.” Lack of adequate and safe childcare kept McGrath out of school for four months. But with the help of her son’s father’s family, McGrath was able to go back to her school, Denver Center for 21st Century Learning, and earn her high school diploma. “I wanted to finish school,” McGrath said. “I love school. I like to learn and take notes. I missed my son every day. But it was worth it.” McGrath said that she wants to teach her son to value education. “I want him to be a good person,” she said. “I need to put priority on things like education and being a good influence for him.” To continue her education and get support on being a teen mom, McGrath turned to Hope House, a nonprofit based in Arvada that empowers teen moms and moves them toward self-sufficiency. “For me, Hope House is a place that I can go and I can just be a mom,” McGrath said. At Hope House, she participates in fellowship nights with other young mothers and is part of the college program, in which she is studying for a career in legal office administration. Belmontes has also found love and support at Hope House. After dropping out of high school, the young mom learned of the nonprofit that also facilitates GED classes. Now, she’s one test away from completing her GED. “It means that I will be able to work and save money to go to college,” Belmontes said of earning her GED. “I want to be a nurse and then eventually a doctor.”

Sterling Ranch welcomes 100th family Homeowners weigh in on life in development under construction BY ALEX DEWIND ADEWIND@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

D

ave and Leslie Samson had been married five years and were looking to transition from a two-story home in Denver to a ranch-style home they could call their own. After touring several areas, disappointed with either the layout or the community, they decided to look at spec homes in Sterling Ranch. They fell in love with one in the masterplanned community in northwest Douglas County. The Samsons, both in their late 50s, are the 29th homeowners to live in the development, which is on a 20-year buildout schedule that is expected to end with 12,000 homes and 33,000 residents. Earlier this year, they moved into their one-story home with large hallways, spacious rooms and a basement for additional space. They have a neighbor on one side of their home and their backyard faces a pocket park. They have a view of Mount Evans. “It’s a small lot but we are not crowded,” Dave Samson said. “I just think this is going to be a very good place for us as we get older.” Sterling Ranch sits west of Santa Fe Drive and south of Chatfield Reservoir, just east of the Roxborough community and next to Roxborough State Park. Paved roads weave through pockets of homes with a variety of layouts and designs, surrounded by unfinished homes and construction equipment. Founders Harold and Diane Smethills purchased the land in 2004. The $4.4 billion multigenerational, ecofriendly development is planned to encompass 3,400 acres of homes, schools, churches, shopping, recreation, trails and the latest in technology. This summer, Sterling Ranch welcomed its 100th family and hit half a billion dollars in development investment. Another 200 homes are in various stages of construction. Homes start in the mid $400,000s and many are listed in the $500,000 to $700,000 range on the development’s website. Some high-end options go into the millions. “There is just a lot of enthusiasm and momentum,” Harold Smethills said. Fast internet is crucial In the summer of 2015, construction of the development’s water and electrical infrastructures began. Two years ago, the first model homes broke ground in one of eight villages, or community areas comprising a variety of home styles, from modern to traditional, one-story to multi-level. The first village, called Providence, will have nearly 800 single-family

homes, 85 acres of open space, one school, a church, a civic center, a recreation center and a fiber optic network. Residents have access to one of the fastest internet speeds available in the U.S., CenturyLink’s 1-gigabit service. Homes and businesses are also interconnected by a virtual touch-screen that controls technology and energy usage. “The key is the gigabit speed, and that is working beautifully for us,” Smethills said. “A large number of homeowners work from home because of the bandwith.” Dave Samson, who works in IT, is

enjoying the ease of adjusting his sprinklers from his cell phone. But the virtual system has been somewhat difficult to navigate, he said. “We have all TVs connected and almost never have any performance issues,” he said. “The system itself is a little complicated. We haven’t tried the automated light system yet.” Rocky road The Smethillses have encountered challenges along the way. In 2011, Sterling Ranch drew opposition from residents of Chatfield, a small community of 65 people that sits near the development’s northwest

border. The Chatfield Community Association filed a lawsuit against Douglas County’s approval of Sterling Ranch, arguing the project did not have proof of a sufficient water supply. The residents also worried about the negative impact on their rural way of life. But the Smethillses have continued to put water, energy and quality of life at the forefront of their planning process. Sterling Ranch is the state’s first rainwater harvesting community. A storm management system will collect rainwater from commercial buildings and street gutters to store in tanks and retention ponds. About 40 percent will be used for irrigation. As the development progresses, Titan Road, a choppy two-lane road that connects the development to Santa Fe Drive, will be expanded to four lanes to fix what Harold Smethills calls a “roller-coaster speedway.” The portion of the road from Sante Fe to the development’s first neighborhood has already been expanded. For every home built in Sterling Ranch, $3,000 goes to county roads that need repairs. “That’s $37 million in new money that will be going to Douglas County,” Harold Smethills said. “The essence of good land planning is solving community problems. The infrastructure in northwest Douglas County is in terrible shape.” Home sweet home Despite heaps of construction surrounding them, the Samsons are pleased with their new home. They sit on their back patio and greet people walking by. Their neighbors are a mix — young couples, working professionals, families and singles. They look forward to a civic center opening later this year and a recreation center and pool that is expected to open next year. The extra space in the basement will be used during visits from their children and grandchildren, they said. They commended Harold and Diane Smethills for their planning process. “They are very thoughtful and they care about the community and the nature around us,” said Leslie Samson. “They just want to be good stewards of the land they own.”

Aerospace attraction coming to Centennial Airport First phase of Wings Over the Rockies’ new campus to open July 21 BY ELLIS ARNOLD EARNOLD@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Aviation enthusiasts in the metro area are in for a new experience when an attraction by Wings Over the Rockies opens at Centennial Airport July 21. Visitors will be able to engage with interactive and educational exhibits, watch airplanes take off and land, test flight simulators, and even listen to radio chatter from the airport’s airtraffic control tower. “You can hear what the pilot is hearing,” said Ben Theune, director of marketing for Wings Over the Rockies, a nonprofit that works to educate about aviation and space. The Boeing Blue Sky Aviation Gallery will be the first phase to open of the nonprofit’s Exploration of Flight campus — the nonprofit calls it unique to the nation — where enthusiasts can have fun but also help solve a looming problem in the aerospace industry. “In aerospace in general, there’s a huge lack of qualified personnel,” Theune said. “Boeing estimates that over the next 18 years, in the aviation industry alone, 2 million workers will

need to fill pilot gaps, aircraft-maintenance gaps, engineering, air-traffic control — the whole bit.” The Blue Sky Aviation Gallery will offer the virtual-reality experience of flying in an aircraft and possibly will show what it’s like to work other roles in flight, like being in air-traffic control, Theune said. The virtual-reality experiences will complement flightsimulator machines, interacting with the latest industry technology and even the ability to experience flying in a plane through a partnership with the Aspen Flying Club. After nearly a decade of planning and fundraising, the 19,000-square-foot hangar will be open to the public Fridays and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sundays from noon to 5 p.m., beginning July 21. The facility sits at 13005 Wings Way in unincorporated Arapahoe County near East County Line Road and South Peoria Street, on the southeast side of the airport. The campus will also eventually feature the Ozmen Black Sky Space Gallery, based around “cutting-edge space technology and concepts,” the nonprofit’s website said. Construction on that project will begin in 2019, the website said. Other parts of Wings Over the Rockies’ 15-acre property at the airport may be taken up by an out-of-state charter school focused on aviation and space, Theune said.

Ben Theune, director of marketing for the nonprofit Wings Over the Rockies, stands at a flight simulator at the Boeing Blue Sky Aviation Gallery July 5. The facility will be the first phase to open of the nonprofit’s Exploration of Flight campus at Centennial Airport.

South Metro Fire Rescue crews help battle wildfires Eight firefighters from South Metro have been sent to three locations BY NICK PUCKETT NPUCKETT@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

As Colorado celebrated Independence Day, six wildfires of 1,000 acres or more were challenging fire crews across the state. Personnel from South Metro Fire Rescue were among those working to douse the flames. South Metro recently deployed three crews to battle blazes in Durango, Costilla and Huerfano counties, and Pike National Forest. One South Metro firefighter was deployed to assist crews at the 416 fire in Durango, a crew of three was sent to the Spring Creek Fire in southern Colorado and another crew of four was sent to mitigate small fires in the Pike National Forest. The crew at the forest has been there for five weeks to help douse fires before they get too big. Eric Hurst, public information officer for South Metro, said that while the department has sent several firefighters, he doesn’t expect any problem with the daily operation of fighting fires in the district, which encompasses a large swath of Douglas and Arapahoe counties.

“It’s kind of a balancing act,” Hurst said. “We’re basically at that threshold now where we wouldn’t send anything else out.” Hurst said South Metro keeps reserve firetrucks available in situations like this and some of those are in use now. The crews on deployment will remain at their assignment for a minimum of 14 days at a time. Hurst said the crews will often work 12- to 16-hour days or work overnight if needed. “There’s not a lot of glamour to it, but the great thing is we get to help other communities when they need help,” Hurst said. On July 4, South Metro personnel at the Spring Creek Fire worked alongside hundreds of other firefighters throughout the day and night in an effort to prevent the spreading of what grew to a more than 100,000-acre fire. The blaze, located in both Costilla and Huerfano counties, became the third largest wildfire in state history was responsible for the destruction of more than 100 homes. Hurst said metro-area residents should be mindful of possible fire hazards by avoiding the use of things that get hot, cause sparks or an open flame when there is high fire danger. Something as simple as mowing a lawn on a hot, dry day can spark a small fire, he said. For any questions regarding fire safety, email reducingrisk@south-

Customers can purchase state parks passes at self-service kiosks STAFF REPORT

Colorado State Parks has rolled out new self-serve kiosks that allow customers to purchase daily and annual state parks passes. The kiosks replace or augment existing systems that require customers to place cash in envelopes when staff members are not available. The machines take credit cards and are more weatherresistant than the envelope system. They are more convenient for customers who do not carry cash and require less employee time to collect payment. “Not a lot of people have exactly seven dollars (for a daily park pass) in their pockets,” Kirk Teklits, parks and wildlife statewide business operations coordinator, said in a news release. “As far as customer service goes, being able to pay by credit card is definitely a desirable service option.” Customers who purchase an annual pass from the kiosk will get a printed receipt that they can

then take into a parks and wildlife office to redeem. Teklits said 15 stations are installed at nine parks and more will be coming later this summer. “Most of the kiosks run on solar power, provide multiple sales channels to our customers, and help our staff with money collection and counting,” Teklits said. “It also helps our law enforcement officers quickly determine who has bought a pass and who hasn’t.” Teklits said more than 800 daily passes and 55 annual passes have been sold through the kiosks since the first ones were installed June 13. The kiosks accept Visa, Mastercard and Discover cards. Kiosks are now installed at Boyd Lake, Castlewood Canyon, Chatfield, Lory, North Sterling, Highline, James M. Robb — Island Acres and Lake Pueblo state parks. Later this summer, kiosks will be installed at Cherry Creek, Eleven Mile, Golden Gate, Staunton, Steamboat Lake, Cheyenne Mountain and Lathrop.

The ‘Gap’ project on I-25 won’t significantly affect environment, report says Federal review makes way for construction to start BY JESSICA GIBBS JGIBBS@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

The Colorado Department of Transportation and the Federal Highway Administration have signed a “Finding of No Significant Impact,” affirming plans to fix the Gap south of Castle Rock will not significantly affect the environment within the project site. CDOT has worked on a Planning and Environmental Linkages study examining the 34-mile stretch of Interstate 25 between C-470 and Monument for more than a year, according to a news release issued by Douglas County. The Gap spans approximately 18 miles within that area, beginning south of Castle Rock and ending with Monument. The roadway is notorious

for creating a bottleneck, where the interstate shrinks to two lanes in each direction, and unpredictable travel times. CDOT announced in April when it debuted its environmental assessment of the Gap it planned to widen that portion of I-25 by adding one toll lane in each direction. A roughly one-month public comment period followed. That feedback is also available in the FONSI on CDOT’s website, codot.gov. Improvements to the Gap are set to cost $350 million and also include replacing bridges, adding wildlife crossings and widening shoulders for emergency management situations. “Signing the FONSI is significant,” CDOT Executive Director Michael Lewis said in the release. “This is a necessary step before we can break ground on one of the most critical transportation projects in the state.”

4 county preschools earn seed grants to create outdoor learning areas STAFF REPORT

Four early childhood learning centers in Arapahoe County have been selected as Colorado Early Childhood Health Outdoors seed grant sites. Healthy, natural and affordable are the foundations of the ECHO program, and they are the values that drive ECHO’s mission for all children in Colorado to have daily access to quality outdoor learning environments, said a news release. Bethany Busy Bee Preschool, Bright Beginnings Learning Center Inc., Cherry Creek Presbyterian Preschool

and Joshua Early Childhood Center will each receive $5,000 to use toward the creation of a naturalized outdoor learning environment, landscape design assistance and support, ongoing training and technical support. Each ECHO seed grant site will work collaboratively with selected ECHO Demonstration Sites to learn best practices in outdoor learning environments and ways to naturalize their outdoor spaces. ECHO is based on a decade of research by North Carolina State University’s Natural Learning Initiative on the Preventing Obesity by Design

MILESTONES

model, the news release said. This research showed that, by improving the design of outdoor spaces through affordable interventions and providing hands-on training for early childhood professionals to actively engage children in these outdoor spaces, young children and early childhood programs see substantial benefits, the release said. ECHO is a partnership between the National Wildlife Federation, Qualistar Colorado, and the Natural Learning Initiative. ECHO seed grant sites were selected from a competitive pool of applicants.

Woman wants climb to highlight mental health 65-year-old sets sights on summit of Kilimanjaro BY NICK PUCKETT NPUCKETT@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

A local woman is setting out to summit Mount Kilimanjaro at age 65 in an effort to raise awareness for mental health. Claire Averill, of Highlands Ranch, will begin her eight-day trip up the highest point in Africa on July 12. She said the climb will be an intense struggle for her to bring to light the lifetime of struggle people with a mental illness suffer. Averill

said this would all be new to her. “I wanted to do something that I felt would be a struggle for me because of what those go through that are afflicted with any mental health condition,” Averill said. “Their life is a struggle sometimes. To me, this was something that was outside the box for me and would be a struggle. That was my equation.” Averill is part of the Happy Crew, an advocacy group that raises awareness of suicide in Douglas County. Specifically, the group reaches out to high school students. SEE CLIMB, P17

Human-dog relationship status: ‘It’s uncomplicated’ QUIET DESPERATION

Craig Marshall Smith

W

hy does your dog lick your face? You say, “My dog doesn’t lick my face.” Do me a favor, and just play along. Your dog licks your face because it tastes like a ham on rye. How can your face taste like a ham on rye if you’re a vegetarian? It can’t. This isn’t the correct answer. Harry is almost 9 months old, and he still licks my face, especially first thing in the morning. I am undecided about it.

It is either a good example of bad parenting, or rather pleasurable. After all, I am a Scorpio. It makes me think about the queen and her corgis. Do any of them wake the queen with their tongues, as it were? I doubt it. My guess is her corgis are trained before she meets them, and she misses out on all of the fun I am having with Harry. Harry licks my face for a number of reasons, according to everything I have read.

It’s a sign of affection. Harry is showing his gratitude. For what? He doesn’t live in a home with an Elvis impersonator. He doesn’t live in a home with country music. He doesn’t live in a home with cats. He’s grateful because he lives in a home. It means we’re friends. He licks me because there are tiny food particles in my skin? Unfortunately, it’s probably true.

It relieves stress. Maybe you know someone who bites their nails. Licking is similar. Harry doesn’t bite his nails. I wish he would. I have to take him to the vet to get it done, and it’s not cheap. Do it myself ? I don’t think he would sit still long enough. I would end up trimming his nose. Licking releases pleasurable endorphins. His or mine? SEE SMITH, P15

How pets help keep us healthy as we age

appiness is a warm puppy. Who doesn’t love the feel of fur between your fingers, or the nicker of a horse when they see you come into the barn? The importance of the human-animal LIVING AND bond has been AGING WELL increasingly recognized and studied in the last 30 years. For those of us who have felt the nuzzle of a cold nose in our hand, or warmth of a cat settled in our lap, we have firsthand experience of the power of an Kelly Diehl animal’s love. In an increasingly fractured and hectic world, where family can be separated by long distances and busy schedules, pets can help fill an important role in providing companionship and purpose for seniors.

This actually happened last week. Someone replied to my question, “What is the best news of the day?” with this text, “Nothing, it’s been a tough 48 hours.” My reply, “Understood, let me know how I can help.” Their reply, “Well, your offer to help is now my best news of the day, thanks.” Like a good joke, motivation and inspiration require the right timing and delivery or they can seem off-putting and offensive. Some may find that hard to believe; however, life brings real challenges and trying times, and when we are in one of those seasons of life, what we need is more hope and encouragement instead of motivation and inspiration. They are very much the same; however, certain situations call for one

Some of Harry’s current behavior will be trained out of him, and some of it will end on its own. He’ll grow out of many of the things he is doing now. Truth is, I know I am going to miss some of it. By reason, age, and logic, Harry is my fourth and final dog. He might outlive me. I will never have another puppy of my own in my life. Once or twice a day, he runs a figure-8 around the living room and dining room and it’s a blur. I have no idea how he does it. Around the dining room table into the living room, behind the couch, and back to the dining room. Lap after lap. And then he comes to an immediate

Although it seems intuitive that pet ownership would be beneficial, what do we really know about the health benefits of pet ownership? There are many documented health benefits to pet ownership. Several studies have shown that interactions with animals (not necessarily pet ownership) can decrease blood pressure, lower cholesterol, and help treat depression. A very recent study showed that Alzheimer’s patients who interacted with animals had improved cognition. Of course, many studies suggest that people who own dogs get more exercise, although other studies contend that people who are active tend to exercise more with their pets. Although the jury is still out on the effect of pets and exercise, there is no question that interactions with animals improve many measurements of well-being. A few lesser known, but equally important benefits of pet ownership include enhanced self-

more than the other. Now we need to remember what Zig Ziglar said about motivation, “People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well neither does bathing, that is why we recommend it daily.” What a great quote and reminder for anyone needing a little pick me up. And I can share with you that there is no better way to get motivated and stay motivated than by being a source of motivation to others, offering hope and encouragement whenever we can. So how about you? What is your “Best news of the day?” I would love to hear you story at gotonorton@gmail. com and when we can stay connected and offer our love, support, hope, and encouragement, it really will be a better than good week.

halt and looks up at me with Those Eyes. Sure: I wish he would sit, stay, come when called, relieve himself where directed, and welcome strangers in our home. Maybe that time will come. But these days are wonderful. He is making new discoveries every day, and I get to see that happen. I watch him run his 8s, and I feel younger again myself. He sits near me when I write, waiting impatiently for me to finish so I can walk him, pet him, feed him, read to him, hold him. My disposition leans like Pisa to pessimism about people and The World.

discipline and self-worth, and more opportunities for meeting people. As one recent AARP article put it, “Pets are natural born ice breakers!” Pet ownership is not without its downside for seniors. Although there are many documented benefits, there are some downsides to pet ownership. Veterinary care can be expensive, and, for folks on a fixed income, can be a drain on limited resources. As seniors elect to move into assisted living or other types of housing, they can encounter restrictions on size or type of pet, or whether pets are allowed at all. Many physicians are concerned about the potential for injuries or falls for older pet owners — and sometimes a pet can be injured if stepped or fallen on. Thinking outside the box of traditional pet ownership can provide

alternative options. As mentioned above, many studies show that simply interacting with animals on a regular basis can have positive health effects. Volunteering at a shelter or rescue can be a rewarding experience — not only can it give you your animal “fix,” helping out also provides muchneeded support to our most vulnerable animals. Many shelters and rescue groups also need volunteers to foster pets for a short time before permanently placing them in a forever home. This can be a great way to get the benefit of having an animal in your home without a long-term commitment. If you travel frequently to visit family members you may find fostering dogs and cats a rewarding experience and one that fits with your lifestyle. You can even foster guinea pigs! SEE AGING, P31

Yet we will continue to hold administration officials accountable for pursuing the rollback of conservation protections on millions of acres of national monuments, scrapping collaborative habitat management plans for sage grouse, and not fighting administration proposals to cut popular public access programs like the Land and Water Conservation Fund. These actions threaten to undermine Roosevelt’s legacy, and I join Backcountry Hunters & Anglers in urging the Trump administration to do the right thing and stand up for our public lands.

Media steeped in bias Yes, I agree with Mr. Raehal — it has gone too far when people are killed, as we saw in the Capital Gazette tragedy. Awful. Tragic. Sad. However, I have to take issue with his analysis and defense of todays’ journalism. For those of us who remember the “Dragnet” TV series and the iconic line by Sgt. Friday, “just the facts mam, just the facts,” it’s a quaint reminder of how journalism used to be when the “hard

news” did report the facts and nothing but the facts. Sadly that is not the case any longer and the industry has lost its credibility and respect as a result. And it won’t improve until the industry and Mr. Raehal fully recognize this reality. Mr. Raehal lets us know that journalists “care,” and I am sure that is true. But the issue he is not addressing, or glossing over on purpose, is that the mainstream media today is not informing — they are building bias and their own liberal agenda into news articles we see in newspapers and on TV news. That is the true threat to our republic, contrary to his contention. I offer just one of many examples: Does anyone believe that Jim Acosta of CNN, who is a reporter, not an opinion commentator, is “informing” us when his questions are nothing more than editorials with a gotcha question at the end of it?

Commander ‘clear top choice’ for Denver police chief Paul Pazen replaces the retiring Robert White ASSOCIATED PRESS

A commander with more than 20 years of experience on the Denver Police Department is its next chief. Denver Mayor Michael Hancock announced recently that Paul Pazen will lead the department. Hancock says Pazen was “a clear top choice” of city officials and residents involved in the search. Pazen was one of five finalists

interviewed. All of the finalists are members of the department’s command staff. Chief Robert White in April announced plans to retire after more than six years leading the department. White previously worked in Louisville, Kentucky and Washington, D.C. “The testament to Chief White’s indelible impact on the department is the deep bench of leadership he has developed, and Paul Pazen has been a rising star in the department who is one of the many results of that work,” Hancock said in a news release.

Pazen joined the department in 1995 after five years in the U.S. Marines Corps. Pazen said he wants to build on the department’s changes under White and add “precision policing” and wraparound services to minimize crime and violence. “My family has a lifelong commitment to service and there is no job I would rather have than to be a member of the Denver Police Department,” Pazen said in the news release. “I am truly grateful to the mayor for this opportunity and look forward to leading the dedicated men and women of DPD.”

Climate, incentive program draw storytellers to state BY CLARKE READER CREADER@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Parker resident Michelle Ullman films an episode of her series, “On the Menu with Michelle Ullman,” at Castle Rock’s 212 Pizza. COURTESY OF MICHELLE ULLMAN

hen Parker resident Michelle Ullman began preparing for the first season of her television show, “On the Menu with Michelle Ullman,” it was important that she “put our fork where our mouth is.” Which meant filming episode one at La Baguette de Normandy in Parker and doing the rest of the 10-episode season in the Denver metro area. “Supporting local should lead by example and start at home,” Ullman said. “There is a wonderful film/TV community here, some of whom I hope to hire on as we grow into making feature films. Denver is primarily a commercial market. We hope to add some film work here.” Ullman is just one example of a growing group of creatives looking to do more filming in the metro area. Denver native Haylar Garcia recently released his third film, a horror movie titled “Apartment 212,” which was shot in the metro area and in his RiNo studio. The movie was released at the Sie FilmCenter in Denver as well as theaters in Los Angeles, New York, Seattle, Detroit and other major cities. “There are so any great artists in the area that deserve a voice, and so many creative communities that deserve to be employed,” he said. “It just seems like the right thing to do to bring national talent here to be a part of it all.” The Colorado Office of Film, Television and Media works to bring in storytellers of all kinds to the state, including filmmakers, animators, gamers and photographers. The office connects these storytellers to resources they need, like location assistance, crew referrals and inter-governmental cooperation. Perhaps most importantly, the Colorado Office of Film offers an incentive program that provides a 20 percent cash rebate for eligible production costs. The incentive program covers feature films, television pilots, television series, television commercials, music videos, industrials, documentaries, and video game design and creation, as well as other forms of content creation. “Keeping the film incentive active will be a big factor in bringing people to the state,” Ullman said. “Keeping a pool of skilled crew, and talented actors to offer filmmakers here in Denver is also important. The current Colorado incentive is only valid on Colorado residents, so the more we can offer them in crew and talent, the less has to be brought in from out of state.” SEE FILIMING, P24

Visual musician’s display sounds like good time

T

he first time artist Scramble Campbell visited Red Rocks was during a sold-out run of Widespread Panic performances in 2000. In that kind of atmosphere, he couldn’t help but do what comes naturally to him — painting the musicians live. “I’d been traveling around to local shows in Florida and the rest of the country doing these live paintings,” COMING he said. “I still ATTRACTIONS do about 80 to 100 of these kinds of paintings a year. In the years since that first Red Rocks show, I’ve done more than 430 live paintings at Red Rocks.” Every year, Campbell puts Clarke Reader together a show of his works, and this year the 14th annual Scramble Campbell Red Rocks Art Experience will be on display at the amphitheater, 18300 W. Alameda Parkway in Morrison, through July 22. This exhibit is open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., reopening during concerts until the end of the show. The man himself will be available for tours and discussions, and he’ll also be painting at concerts through July 22. “I like to shake up the exhibit based on who is playing a show,” Campbell explained. “When the Avett Brothers or Blues Traveler are playing, the exhibit features previous works I’ve done inspired by their performances.” Red Rocks is unquestionably the best venue in the country, according to Campbell, and he sees what he does as a different kind of performance that nonetheless fits into the venue. “I’m really an artistic and visual musician,” he said. “And there’s a visual thread of the venue that is part of every painting.” To learn more about Campbell, check out www.scramblecampbell. com. ‘Daily Show’ correspondent stops by Comedy Works If you’re a longtime watcher of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show,” like I am, you know how easy it is to get attached to correspondents, and one of the best in the current iteration of the show is Roy Wood Jr. SEE READER, P24

Rush Creek project will provide electricity for 325,000 homes

The power is blowin’ in the wind

BY TABATHA STEWART SPECIAL TO COLORADO COMMUNITY MEDIA

On the hottest day of the year so far, dozens of Elbert County residents, local and state elected officials and Xcel Energy representatives gathered at the home of Jan and Virgil Kochis in Matheson, to get a peek at the latest of 30 wind turbines that were recently completed on the Kochis property, as part of Xcel’s first major wind farm project: Rush Creek Wind Farm. “This farm has been in our family for more than 100 years,” said Jan Kochis, property owner and chair of the Rocky Mountain Farmers Union Board. “Virgil’s grandparents settled here. This may make it possible for the family farm to stay in the family another 100 years.” When the Rush Creek project is completed and fired up this October, it will provide energy for approximately 325,000 homes in Colorado. While renewable energy is much needed in the state, Kochis said the installation of the turbines on their property — which is east of Simla and west of Limon — will provide much-needed income during a hyear of above-average temperatures and below-average rainfall, making it a tough year for growing crops. “The new income that these turbines provide will create more certainty for our farming operations by helping balance against the rollercoaster commodity markets and unpredictable weather,” Kochis said during the June 28 event. State Rep. Kimmi Lewis applauded landowners like the Kochises for their willingness to lease their land and drive economic development within the county. ”I’m honored to be on Virgil and Jan’s property today,” said Lewis. “This is true economic development, and I so much endorse that type of growth in rural areas. The day will come when we look out, like today, and see wind turbines. I applaud those landowners who are willing to do that.” Elbert County Commissioner Grant Thayer said each turbine brings in about $4,000 annually in property tax, and provides an alternative to farming in rough years. “It’s another income stream for agriculture people in Colorado,” said Thayer. ”We’ve had strong support, and the locals like it.” Residents had concerns

HOW DO WIND TURBINES WORK? According to the Wind Energy Foundation, people have harnessed the energy of the wind as far back as 5000 B.C., when boats were propelled along the Nile River using only wind, and later, when in the late 19th century windmills came into use to pump water for farms and ranches. While the simple design of a windmill has remained the same over the years, the latest iteration of electricity-generating wind turbines are much larger, generate more electricity, and distribute the electricity much farther than their ancestors. Erecting today’s wind turbines is much more complicated.

Jan Kochis speaks to community members and state and local officials about her experience having 30 wind turbines installed on her land in Matheson. The turbines are part of Xcel Energy’s Rush Creek Wind Project. PHOTOS BY TABATHA STEWART

What is the Rush Creek Wind Farm?

about the extensive amount of work that goes into erecting the turbines, including increased traffic and dust that comes from truck traffic on rural dirt roads. Neighbor Tim Brown said he has held out leasing his farm for wind turbines, but he attended the June 28 tour of the farm, and spoke to the crowd that gathered. “It’s all been pretty good,” Brown said. ”We got along really well as far as the construction and the extra traffic.” Attendees were given a tour of the Kochis property, and got up close and personal with a turbine, which towers approximately 260 feet above the ground. Cattle grazed in the field below the turbines, and

signs of crops growing in the surrounding field showed that land leased for turbines can still be used for grazing and growing. Xcel project manager Gerry Kelly answered questions about the construction and working of the wind turbines. “The towers are 80 meters tall, with three blades that measure about 54 meters each (about 177 feet),” said Kelly. ”The hub generates the electricity that is transmitted to a substation before being released into the Xcel Energy grid.” Placement of the towers is an important factor when designing a wind farm. According to Kelly the towers are placed a quarter-mile apart,

with about 1,000 to 1,200 yards necessary in front and behind each tower. The blades are electronically controlled, and can be manipulated to maximize the wind, as well as be turned off in the event of too much wind. Kelly said it could take years of studying wind patterns before a site is deemed a good fit for a wind farm. Kochis said she knew some people didn’t like the changing landscape that wind farms bring, but she doesn’t mind seeing the turbines outside her window. “I enjoy every day looking out my kitchen window and seeing the majestic wind turbines through my trees,” Kochis said.

First, a wind turbine must be installed, which involves erecting three tower sections, totaling a height of about 260 feet. At the top of the tower the hub and nacelle, which house all of the generating components, are placed, with three blades, approximately 177 feet long, attached to the hub. Each foundation requires about 300 yards of concrete and reinforced steel. Electricity is generated within the nacelle when the wind blows, which spins a shaft connected to a generator that creates electricity. The electricity created is transmitted through lines down through the tower to substations, where it is released into the power grid and distributed.

Representatives from Xcel Energy lead a tour of the Rush Creek Wind Farm in Matheson.

‘The Arsonists’ is haunting look at power of family ties BY SONYA ELLINGBOE SELLINGBOE@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

The theater was dark already when we arrived at Benchmark Theatre on a Sunday evening for a performance of “The Arsonists” (perhaps a bit too dark). And there was a soundtrack of crickets and other swampy critters, plus a bit of moody music to set the scene … Walls of a bare cabin let firelight flicker

through the slats. Lights came up briefly for a welcome from Benchmark’s co-producer, Rachel Rogers, and darkness returned as we listened to a frustrated, profane woman, trying to move a heavy bundle into the ramshackle cabin and across the floor to a hole at the back corner where she tears at the floor and eventually dumps her burden … As light came on again, a distraught

young woman, known in the script as M, appears (Florida native Rebakah Goldberg, recently welcomed in the Denver theater community). She roams the little space — talking, restless, frightened, searching? M spies a leather jacket in a cardboard box on the floor. She clasps it to her, smelling and hugging it, puts it on and obviously feels better. It’s her late father’s jacket and we learn that the family business, as it were, is arson in the Florida swamps, where vegetation flares and burns quickly. “The Arsonists,” a dark work by playwright Jacqueline Goldfinger, is in a new play’s process of becoming recognized. It was first produced by three member theaters as a National New Play Network Rolling World Premiere. (Curious Theatre in Denver is an NNPN member and participates in a similar process.) Benchmark, in its second season, housed in the former Edge space, seeks strong new material and presents the regional premiere of “The Arsonists” — giving the work an additional boost along its path. With haunting music, we follow a father-daughter tale inspired by the Greek classic legend of “Electra,” about a daughter who does not want to let her father go … Stephen Weitz of Boulder Ensemble Theatre is the discerning director.

IF YOU GO “The Arsonists” plays through July 21, with performances at 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, 6 p.m. Sundays, plus additional performances on July 12 and 19. (No performance on Friday, July 6.) Benchmark Theatre is at 1560 Teller St., Lakewood, in the 40 West Arts District. Tickets cost $30/$20 at benchmarktheatre.com. Questions? Info@benchmarktheatre.com. No children under 8. H, the desperate father, played by skilled local actor Michael Morgan, appears suddenly to tell M that she left part of him back at the death scene … he can’t totally depart until he is made whole … She of course goes to search for it … Conversation between the pair is alternately spooky, poetic and funny, as they talk about the past, and the late mother … A strong, loving relationship between father and daughter lights the interaction throughout, although the relationship is probably far from the experience of most audience members. Called “a play with music,” this haunting production will send you home with immediate memories of strong performance — and perhaps a backward glimpse of one’s own ancestry somewhere?

‘Pink Progression’ exhibition pays tribute to Women’s March events Center for Visual Art display will continue into August on Santa Fe Drive

IF YOU GO

BY SONYA ELLINGBOE SELLINGBOE@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

The Center for Visual Art, Metropolitan State University of Denver’s gallery, is at 965 Santa Fe Drive, Denver. There is some free parking in front. Hours: 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays, noon to 5 p.m. Saturdays. Admission is free. 303-294-5207, msudenver.edu/cva.

Turn right as you enter the Center for Visual Art on Santa Fe Drive and admire the sleek pink “Ourobouros,” a huge pink snake, circling to bite its tail, by Emma Hardy and Rebecca DiDomenico. It hangs in the gallery window and in a way, speaks for the entire “Pink Progression” exhibit. It is these two artists’ version of an ancient symbol for cyclicality, recreation of self … “Pink Progression” was inspired by — and celebrates — the two recent Women’s Marches, 2017 and 2018, and is said to “address concepts of human rights, gender, sexual identity, feminism and inclusivity.” More than 50 artists explore social interactions in at least 50 different ways — in paintings, prints, sculpture, drawings, ceramics, video and combinations of techniques, large and small … A visitor becomes fascinated and thoroughly engaged by the many ways of seeing, feeling. The CVA credits local artist Anna Kaye with organizing this large show, which has visited the Boulder Public Library and Denver Public Library prior to its position at the CVA, through Aug. 19. Art lovers will almost all find something that impresses them on a visit to this varied exhibit, tied together by color and focus. (And no doubt, something that fails to impress, given the wide range of style and technique!) Many works are loaned by the gallery that represents an artist. Near “Ouroborous,” find a couple of walls, papered with a “Domesticated Rat” pattern by Rachel Delaney and Sandy Lane — and individual sheets with a single rat enjoying eating something pink. (Crayons are thoughtfully provided for those who want to color a page to carry home, as did the 20-somethings who accompanied us.) Each artwork has a message or a question or a vision. At the far end of the gallery is Trini Bumiller’s floor-to-ceiling “Monumental,” consisting of 128 panels, painted in oils. Each depicts a national monument, “created to honor and protect places of cultural, environmental and cultural importance,” and each incorporates pink. “The pink hues represent all phases of feminism,” Bumiller writes, “from baby blush and sexy hot pinks to reds of passion, rage and love.” We see landscapes, buildings, plants, figures and much more … Katy Caron of Littleton, Arapahoe Community College Ceramic Department chair, collaborated with Marie

Perrin-McGraw to craft “Untitled (Shadow Box),” and Sue Simon of Englewood exhibits a large painting, “I Am,” subtitled “DNA Sequence,” in the back right gallery. Simon says “My paintings combine abstraction with science and mathematics — scientific concepts developed from real scientific research. They describe our new understanding of the universe. Paintings are based on combining the elegance of science and the visual richness of art.” Across from Simon’s work, appropriately situated with a place to sit and look — and ponder — for an extended time, is Laleh Mehran’s electronic “Tenuous Hierarchy 1, 10, 100.” A black frame surrounds a screen with Trini Bumiller constant movement artist of patterns, accompanied by soft sound. It “explores power across global borders by collocating topography from one country to currency of another. These combinations of foreign structures examine the control and impact of money on sociopolitical infrastructures.” Readers may recall Mehran’s stunning installation in 2012 at the Denver Art Museum: “Men of God, Men of Nature.” She is on the University of Denver faculty. Julia Rymer Brucker of Littleton exhibits four panels: “Light at St. James.” She also works at the intersection of art and science. “Through art, I uncover the beauty of the natural world,” she wrote, “from a cell to an orbiting planet to a tree shedding leaves …” An Aug. 4 workshop is planned: “Rethinking the Pinking,’ with exhibit artists Steven Frost and Frankie Toan, from noon to 3 p.m. The hands-on workshop and discussion will address the symbolism of the iconic pink hat of the Women’s March and generate new concepts for more inclusive symbolism. Who does the hat represent/ exclude? How should we consider a more inclusive symbolism in activism? Participants will be encouraged to design alternative hats that reflect each participant’s own voice in contemplating feminist activism. Age 17 and up. The rear gallery holds a related student exhibit called “Reclamation.”

“The pink hues represent all phases of feminism, from baby blush and sexy hot pinks to reds of passion, rage and love.”

A

pounding summer squall sent musicians and techs scrambling to cover instruments and mixing boards at the 28th annual Breckenridge Brewery Hootenanny in Littleton on July 7, but for the throngs of festivalgoers, the storm was just a chance to dance in the rain and play in the mud. The Hootenanny featured a lineup blending Colorado-appropriate jam, country and folk sounds, including Hard Working Americans, Coral Creek, Billy Strings and Phish co-founder Mike Gordon. The Brewery’s brews no doubt softened the blow of the storm that briefly delayed the festivities. “I’m a Colorado girl, so I’m not scared of a little Mother Nature,” said Stacey McCormick of Arvada, attending her second Hootenanny with her husband Dan. “Just so long as it doesn’t water down my beer.”

‘Full Circle’ exhibit is worth coming around to see Terry Maker is Boulder artist with fascinating works at Littleton Museum BY SONYA ELLINGBOE SELLINGBOE@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Viewers at the opening of Terry Maker’s “Full Circle” exhibit (through Aug. 19 at the Littleton Museum) huddled in groups, fixated on Maker’s brightly colored, complex compositions, speculating … How did she do that? What am I seeing? What are those objects embedded in resin? Some are quickly recognizable, such as candy in the “Jawbreaker” series or pencils in “Pointless,” but the subtle color of shredded photographs in “Snapshot 1 and 2,” which greet the visitor upon arrival, are not so evident at first … Maker, a prominent Boulder artist, says she “explores the process of artmaking while addressing themes related to human desire and decay, death and resurrection, both mundane and sacred and mark making, both literal and figurative. “By using a diverse range of commonplace, discarded, domestic objects as well as traditional art-making materials, I cast, compose and assemble sculptured forms that are subsequently cut, drilled, scraped or

otherwise manipulated to reveal the `guts’ of the matter. Gleaning detritus for its dual identity creates a startling conclusion. What is commonplace and rough-hewn mulch becomes formally graceful.” Her craftsmanship is truly astonishing as she has organized common objects of assorted sizes, textures and colors into (mostly) circular frames that lead the eye into the depths of a particular composition. “Eyerolling (Yellow),” 2017, and “Eyerolling (Red),” 2017, seem to lean toward Oriental design, I thought, but their labels say they are composed of “paper targets, collaged targets and vacuumformed shaky eyes.” A three-dimensional “Trigger,” 2018, a sort of starburst form, contains a “high density polyurethane foam and wood parts,” it says. The wood parts, on closer inspection, once were incorporated in guns. Stunning statement there, aiming in all directions … For many of the 35 works in this show, Maker’s complicated process involved compacting, amalgamating the chosen items together, then slicing off a cross section which is polished and becomes an art piece, “providing the structure for new replicated cross sections.” These revealed surfaces present the viewer with a visual puzzle, which compels one to question accepted modes of art-making and confront this unique visual vocabulary.

IF YOU GO “Full Circle: Works by Terry Maker” is exhibited at the Littleton Museum, 6028 S. Datura St., Littleton, through Aug. 19. Hours: 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesdays to Fridays; 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays; 1 to 5 p.m. Sundays. Admission is free. 303-795-3950.

But, one would hope the viewer can just enjoy the richness, texture, color and depth of Maker’s works, without getting too involved in how they are made. Visually engaging, each work offers a depth of color and texture that leads the eye to the next equally engaging circle! To the left of the entrance are two groupings that are not to be missed:

A set of works in oval frames, called “Kingdom,” rise perpendicular to the wall and really draw one to inspect closely. Hundreds of intricately made tiny objects, created with wood and resin, build a city — Who lives and works there? When? What’s the story? (Create a story? …) Across from “Kingdoms” is “Small Album Sides,” a series of older album covers — and the vinyl records they contained are shredded and packaged — nostalgic, perhaps, but … One more story for the viewer to concoct before departing! Plan to spend some time with “Full Circle: Works by Terry Maker.” Kevin Oehler, Littleton Museum curator of exhibits, not only planned an exhibit that highlights the imaginative works, but produced a handsome catalog that offers added insight into Maker’s life and work. “The circle becomes both a building block and a formalist end in itself. Viewers will begin to notice dozens of ways this geometric figure is put to task, and the wide spectrum of objects and effects it generates,” he writes.

FILMING FROM PAGE 18

As anyone who has traveled the state can attest to, the variety of scenery Colorado has to offer is one of the biggest draws for filmmakers, like director William Garrison. He has been working on the pilot for a television series called “Frozen Dead” in Nederland, not far from Golden. “Colorado has some great locations and great history. It provides an excellent backdrop for great movie ideas,” he said. “There is a wealth of creative talent in the Denver area. That alone should attract new productions — plus, we also have a lot of sunshine and four full seasons, unlike L.A.” A trip to any of the many small theaters in the metro area demonstrates there’s a wealth acting talent, and that includes all ages. Despite being so young, 10-year-old Payton Maynard, of Arvada, has already worked in several independent films and is one of the leads in “Frozen Dead.” She recently took to the stage for the first time in the role of the Young Queen Elizabeth II in Aurora’s Vintage Theatre’s production of “The Audience.” “There is obviously going to be double the amount of opportunities to work as

an actor in other places like Los Angeles or New York, but I have found a good amount of work here,” she said. “You just have to know how to look for it. I have a fantastic agent and manager that are always giving me opportunities, and I have an amazing mother who works hard to make good connections with people in the film industry.” Maynard’s mother Courtney has been keeping an eye on the Denver film scene as she helps out her daughter and is eager to see how the form will grow in the area. “I would love to see bigger directors take advantage of the amazing talent from crew to cast that all call William Garrison Colorado film director home,” she said. “Because the Metro area is so condensed there is a large group of actors and crew that all know each other and network together. Having personally worked with a lot of them, I can say that the Denver scene has some dynamite industry professionals.”

Greenwood Village shows off talent of local artists Colorado is home to many artists of unique talent and skill, and many of them won’t receive the wider recognition they deserve. That’s why smaller galleries and spaces are so crucial — they provide space for local artists to show their work. This year marks the 35th annual All-Colorado Art Show on display at the Curtis Center for the Arts, 2349 E. Orchard Road in Greenwood Village, which gives area artists a chance to get their work out there. The exhibit takes place from July 14 through August 25, 2018, with an opening reception on Saturday, July 14 from 6-8 p.m. This exhibit was open to artists in

all mediums, currently residing in Colorado, to apply. More than 60 artists will be represented in the show, which was juried by Greenwood Village resident and international artist Patricia Aaron.

Clarke’s Concert of the Week — Counting Crows at the Pepsi Center Growing up in the ‘90s meant there were some bands that were part of the musical atmosphere of the time. You’d hear them all the time on the radio, see them on MTV and shell out for tickets every time they came to town. One of the better of these groups was the Counting Crows, and they’re hitting the road this summer in honor of 25 years of being a band. The Counting Crows, along with ‘90s stalwart Live, will be stopping by the Pepsi Center, 1000 Chopper Circle, at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, July 18. Over the years, the Counting Crows have released some excellent albums, but their 1993 debut, “August and Everything After” will always go down as their classic. Radio mainstays like “Mr. Jones” and “Rain King” are still in heavy rotation on stations like KBCO. Go to www.altitudetickets.com/ events/detail/counting-crows for tickets to this great show.

Study finds coffee drinkers may live longer 10-year British overview raises intriguing possibilities BY LINDSEY TANNER ASSOCIATED PRESS

Go ahead and have that cup of coffee, maybe even several more. New research shows it may boost chances for a longer life, even for those who down at least eight cups daily. In a study of nearly half-a-million British adults, coffee drinkers had a slightly lower risk of death over 10 years than abstainers. The apparent longevity boost was seen with instant, ground and decaffeinated, results that echo U.S.

research. It’s the first large study to suggest a benefit even in people with genetic glitches affecting how their bodies use caffeine. Overall, coffee drinkers were about 10 percent to 15 percent less likely to die than abstainers during a decade of follow-up. Differences by amount of coffee consumed and genetic variations were minimal. The results don’t prove your coffee pot is a fountain of youth nor are they a reason for abstainers to start drinking coffee, said Alice Lichtenstein, a Tufts University nutrition expert who was not involved in the research. But she said the results reinforce previous research and add additional reassurance for coffee drinkers. “It’s hard to believe that something SEE COFFEE, P26

we enjoy so much could be good for us. Or at least not be bad,” Lichtenstein said. The study was published July 2 in the journal JAMA Internal Medicine. It’s not clear exactly how drinking coffee might affect longevity. Lead author Erikka Loftfield, a researcher at the U.S. National Cancer Institute, said coffee contains more than 1,000 chemical compounds including antioxidants, which help protect cells from damage. Other studies have suggested that substances in coffee may reduce inflammation and improve how the body uses insulin, which can reduce chances for developing diabetes. Loftfield said efforts to explain the potential longevity benefit are continuing. Adam Taylor, fetching two iced coffees for friends recently in downtown Chicago, said the study results make sense. “Coffee makes you happy, it gives you something to look forward to in the morning,” said Taylor, a sound engineer from Las Vegas. “I try to have just one cup daily,” Taylor said. “Otherwise I get a little hyper.” For the study, researchers invited 9 million British adults to take part; 498,134 women and men aged 40 to 69 agreed. The low participation

rate means those involved may have been healthier than the general U.K. population, the researchers said. Participants filled out questionnaires about daily coffee consumption, exercise and other habits, and received physical exams including blood tests. Most were coffee drinkers; 154,000 or almost one-third drank two to three cups daily and 10,000 drank at least eight cups daily. During the next decade, 14,225 participants died, mostly of cancer or heart disease. Caffeine can cause short-term increases in blood pressure, and some smaller studies have suggested that it might be linked with high blood pressure, especially in people with a genetic variation that causes them to metabolize caffeine slowly. But coffee drinkers in the U.K. study didn’t have higher risks than nondrinkers of dying from heart disease and other blood pressurerelated causes. And when all causes of death were combined, even slow caffeine metabolizers had a longevity boost. As in previous studies, coffee drinkers were more likely than abstainers to drink alcohol and smoke, but the researchers took those factors into account, and coffee drinking seemed to cancel them out. The research didn’t include whether participants drank coffee black or with cream and sugar. But Lichtenstein said loading coffee with extra fat and calories isn’t healthy.

Area woman set to play against pros

T

Players can participate in a variety of beach volleyball games at The Island in Denver.

Game’s reach goes beyond beach

Those wanting to play volleyball in the sand find opportunities in metro area BY JIM BENTON JBENTON@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Shelly Leuenberger temporarily left her love of playing beach volleyball behind when she moved with her family from California to Colorado. However, the Parker resident is playing volleyball again in the sand in landlocked Colorado after finding The Island, a beach volleyball facility in southeast Denver. “There’s no beaches here,” said Leuenberger. “I’m from Hermosa Beach where beach volleyball is major league. I used to play at the beach all the time. “When I moved here 3 1/2 years ago, I gave up the sport and then I found this place. It’s is a little bit different than at the beach but it makes me feel good that I’m back into it.” Beach volleyball is booming around the Denver area, with sand courts at bars, clubs and parks. The Island, 2233 S.Geneva St., has

six indoor sand courts, two outside and plans are to add six more outdoor courts. Tom Davenport is the owner and he also owns The Oasis at 2400 W. Midway Blvd. in Broomfield. The Oasis has seven indoor and three outdoor beach volleyball courts. There are leagues at both locations with six-on-six competition, fouron-four and the popular two-on-two doubles that is seen on television and at the Olympics. There is no ocean, sea or bay around the sand courts in Colorado and players don’t have to worry about elements like the wind off the shore. “What is different than an actual beach is the sand is fluffier and deeper,” said Leuenberger. “The sand is more shallow here and that’s the only difference.” Sand in Colorado is sometimes called “jumpers sand” because the sand on the genuine beaches is deeper, which makes in harder to jump. The popularity of beach volleyball is at least partially because of the inclusivity of the sport. “I found is it is a game that lends itself to coed participation,” said Davenport. “You can play with men and women on a court. It’s a relatively level playing field.”

And all players are involved. “It has a high degree of immediate gratification,” Davenport said. “Every time the ball comes over the net, especially in doubles beach volleyball, you get to touch it, you get to pass it, set it or hit it. Every point, every play, you are involved. “In golf, you get to hit the ball 100 times around the golf course and you can be either a hero or goat. Volleyball has that same addiction component because of the gratification.” There are some unwritten rules involved the culture at The Island. For instance, a guy never blocks a lady. “There is a volleyball etiquette you have to know here because some people don’t follow it and they don’t last long,” said Adam Wiedel, of Castle Rock. “People start getting on their cases.” Wiedel lists several reasons people keep playing beach volleyball. “Some people like the competitiveness and some like the sport, some people like the accomplishment, some like to have the beer and some like to have good friends,” he said. “It is whatever drives them to have fun that keeps them coming back.” SEE BEACH, P35

here will be 120 golfers in the field for the first-ever U.S. Women’s Senior Open that starts July 12 but there is more to this story. Centennial resident Janet Moore is probably tired of hearing the above play on words, but the 53-year-old is a Colorado Golf Hall of Famer who will enter her 26th U.S. Golf Association tournament. OVERTIME “They (USGA tournaments) were all a big thrill,” said Moore. “It’s always my goal to qualify for them. My goal someday is to do well in one of them. The Jim Benton furthest I’ve gone is the quarterfinals in a Mid-Amateur. Right now this tournament would be the one that sticks out the most. This is against pros and really, really good players. It will be fun. I’m just going to go out and have fun and try to play my best.” The tournament will be at the Chicago Golf Club, one of the five founding clubs of the USGA and the oldest course in the U.S. in continuous use at the same location. The course will be 6,082 yards and play to par 73. Moore, who attended Wheat Ridge High School, shot a 74 on June 12 at Common Ground Golf Course in Aurora to qualify for the inaugural Senior Women’s Open. She won a Colorado-record four consecutive CGA Women’s Stroke Play titles and five overall. Moore was inducted into the Colorado Golf Hall of Fame in 2001 when she was only 36 years old. Moore was one of four golfers to qualify from the June 12 tournament. Valley Country Club teaching professional Sherry Andonian-Smith and part-time Gunnison resident Marilyn Hardy also qualified along with Patricia Beliard from Katy, Texas. “I’m very excited they are having the first U.S. Senior Women’s Open,” she said. “A lot of people say it is long overdue and as an amateur for me it is a bonus. “Once I heard they were having it, I set my sights on qualifying for it. There is something very special about a USGA event. As an amateur it allows you to play at a high level. And you get to play with great players from other states and across the country.” SEE BENTON, P35

LETTERS FROM PAGE 16

know what Mr. Gardner has to say on the subject. Darryl Shaw Lone Tree

Where’s Gardner’s voice? In your June 28 issue you gave us brief statements from Colorado lawmakers and the governor reacting to family separations on the border. For some reason there were six photographs but only five statements — no comment from Cory Gardner – just a photo. Maybe your readers would like to

President trying to fix situation Regarding the article “Colorado politicians react to family separation”: The subhead, “White House rolled out, then halted, policy of separating children” is a misrepresentation implying President Trump and his administration are responsible for the separation of illegal immigrant

children from their families (assuming the children even belong to families at the border). The Flores Consent Decree from 1997 differs. It says that unaccompanied children can be held only 20 days. A ruling by the Ninth Circuit extended this 20-day limit to children who come as part of family units. So even if we want to hold a family unit together, we are forbidden from doing so. Separation has been going on since 1997. President Trump’s executive order is an attempt at fixing it.

We have had an essentially open border as previous presidents practiced catch and release. President Trump is simply trying to enforce immigration laws. As for politician’s reactions the article quotes four liberals and one straddling representative (Coffman). Cory Gardner’s quote earlier ignores the 1997 Decree as he also panders. The headline should read “Colorado politicians pander to family separation.” George Sullivan Centennial

Adopting an older pet is another option for people who love pets but worry about a long-term commitment or don’t want the hassles associated with raising a young animal. Many older pets sit unwanted in shelters, but they can make great companions for seniors.

I’m happy we can share our golden years together!” Pets can fill an important void in seniors’ lives. They provide unconditional love and

FROM PAGE 30

Moore, whose husband and Arapahoe High School graduate Kent is a Colorado Golf Hall of Famer who has won over 15 Colorado Golf Association titles, never considered turning professional. “For a while there I was doing really well on the state level but unless you are dominating of the state level and doing real well nationally it doesn’t make much sense to turn pro,” she explained. “I could do OK there for a while on the state level but I’ve never won a national tournament. That’s the reality of it. You have to be dominating at both levels to be able to compete.” An ailing neck has bothered Moore and it wasn’t until June 28 that she committed to compete in the Women’s Senior Open. She started preparing for the tournament July 3. “I’ve been doing everything to take care of it,” Moore revealed. “I’ve gone to a chiropractor, a trainer, message, everything, you name it, I’ve done it. It is now getting better. I used to practice five hours a day. I practice two hours a day and that’s enough for me. I practice a little smarter these days.” Moore coached golf at Wheaton College for a few years when her daughter Sarah was playing. It is a 10-minute

BEACH FROM PAGE 30

Gina Engbarth of Centennial plays 20 hours a week. “It is not surprising anymore to play beach volleyball in Colorado,” she said. “Tom (Davenport) has done so much for beach volleyball in Denver. “You can play year round. I don’t know how much more it can grow because there are so many people involved in the sport but, yeah, I think it will continue to grow here in Colorado and across the U.S.” Kris Bredehoft of Englewood is a player and coach.

drive from the Chicago Golf Club and Moore got the chance to play the course once. No. 8 national ranking Mountain Vista’s Class 5A state championship baseball team was ranked eighth nationally in the MaxPreps rankings for the 2018 season. According to MaxPreps and CHSAANow.com, it was the highest a Colorado team has been in the computer rankings since Rocky Mountain was No. 7 following the 2010 season. Mountain Vista was eighth in both the writers and computer rankings. The Golden Eagles, third in West Region rankings, ended the season with a 26-1 record with its only loss coming in the first game of the 5A double elimination state tournament. Class 4A state champion Valor Christian was ranked 42nd nationally by MaxPreps. Besides Rocky Mountain in 2010, other top national rankings over the years by Colorado schools include Cherry Creek No. 12 in 2012, Rocky Mountain No. 11 in 2014 and Eaton No. 17 in 2015. Jim Benton is a sports writer for Colorado Community Media. He has been covering sports in the Denver area since 1968. He can be reached at jbenton@ coloradocommunitymedia.com or at 303566-4083.

“The sport is definitely big here,” she said. “Girls are solely going for beach scholarships now, where they used to go for hard court. There are a lot of the same principles but it is a hard transition from hard court to beach. “In hard court, players specialize in a position. In beach, you play every position. It makes you more versatile.” Women’s beach volleyball is recognized as an emerging sport by the NCAA with 93 schools, including 54 in Division I, having varsity teams. Colorado Mesa, a Division II school in Grand Junction, is the only college in Colorado to have a team but several other schools are considering adding the sport.

Without public notices, the government wouldn’t have to say anything else.

Public notices are a community’s window into the government. From zoning regulations to local budgets, governments have used local newspapers to inform citizens of its actions as an essential part of your right to know. You know where to look, when to look and what to look for to be involved as a citizen. Local newspapers provide you with the information you need to get involved.
