December 2, 2016D Mayor Cathy Noon alongside Nancy Sharpe, the Arapahoe County Commissioner for District 2 and Bill Lamberton, the Board President for the Parker Jordan Metropolitan District cut the ribbon at the Arapahoe Road Trailhead Nov. 17. STEPHANIE MASON

Arapahoe Road Trailhead opens after six years of construction BY STEPHANIE MASON SMASON@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

After six years of construction, the Arapahoe Road Trailhead is open for public use. “We are really thrilled that the city has this gem located in it,” Mayor Cathy Noon said. “We are happy with the partners that came together … All the parks, all the trails, all the open space we have within the city and the county have certainly benefited.” On Nov. 17, Noon cut the ribbon at the trailhead alongside Nancy Sharpe, Arapahoe County Commissioner for District 2, and Bill Lamberton, board president of the

Parker Jordan Metropolitan District. The occasion marks a six-year effort to fill a gap in Arapahoe County’s trail network, according to the city. The trailhead, at 15200 E. Arapahoe Road, provides a safe crossing under Arapahoe Road, restrooms, a playground, bicycle racks, covered picnic shelters and landscaping. In 2010, the Open Spaces program purchased the space for $750,000. An additional $1.3 million has since been invested in constructing the amenities. The trail connects to Cherry Creek State Park and Cherry Creek Regional Trail, which sees 4,000 to 6,000 users per month during the peak season, Sharpe said.

South Suburban creates blueprint for the future District develops its first master plan, guiding next 10 years of decisions BY KYLE HARDING KHARDING@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Nearly six decades into its existence, the South Suburban Parks and Recreation District is developing its first master plan, guiding the future of parks, trails, open space and public recreation in the area. “We’re really looking at the blueprint for the next five to 10 years of the district,” Amanda Jeter, of planning firm Design Workshop, said at a Nov. 17 meeting at the Lone Tree Golf Club & Hotel. District Executive Director Rob Hanna called the plan a guiding document for South Suburban’s near future. “It creates the pathway for what we’re going to spend our money on,” he said. Design Workshop and the district are drafting the plan, a version of which should be completed and available for public review early next year. The plan will lay out priorities for maintaining and upgrading facilities and partnering with other

entities on projects. South Suburban encompasses 74 parks and more than 2,000 acres of open space, as well as more than 100 miles of trails and four recreation centers across Littleton, Centennial, Lone Tree, Sheridan, Columbine Valley, Bow Mar and unincorporated areas of Arapahoe, Douglas and Jefferson counties. Through focus groups and a mail survey, Jeter said the district has found more support for maintaining current properties than for acquiring new ones. “Most agree on taking better care of what we have,” she said. Different communities in the district have different priorities, though. Lone Tree residents expressed equal support for maintaining current assets and acquiring new ones, with high levels of support for a new outdoor pool, off-leash dog parks and a new recreation center. “Sheridan has much different demographics and community needs than places like Lone Tree or Centennial,” Jeter said, noting that Sheridan residents were more likely to list multi-use athletic fields as an important asset.

Lawyers for shooting suspect unsure about plea Judge pushes attorneys for Kevin Lyons and prosecution to make decisions in case BY KYLE HARDING KHARDING@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Judge Carlos Samour Jr. expressed frustration at the slow pace of the case of a Centennial man facing murder and attempted murder charges in an April shooting. Attorneys for Kevin Lyons, who is suspected of killing a well-known Centennial doctor, said at a Nov. 21 hearing they are not yet ready to inform the court what type of plea he will enter. The prosecution also isn’t ready to say whether the death penalty will be sought.

Lyons is accused of killing his neighbor, Kenneth Atkinson, and shooting his wife, Elizabeth Lyons, and neighbor Laurie Juergens — and of shooting at two other neighbors and two Arapahoe County Sheriff ’s deputies. Elizabeth Lyons told police her husband had been acting erratically in the days leading up to the shooting and that he shot Lyons her after she suggested he seek mental health treatment at a hospital. Police and prosecutors allege Kevin Lyons then shot Atkinson and Juergens outside while they were trying to help his wife escape. In June, Lyons was ruled competent to stand trial following an evaluation at Colorado Mental Health Institute at Pueblo. He could still enter a not guilty-by-reason-of-insanity plea, but public defender James Karbach said

“We really sincerely don’t know what plea we’re going to enter, and I mean that,” James Karbach, public defender the defense is still determining how to plead. “We really sincerely don’t know what plea we’re going to enter, and I mean that,” Karbach told Samour at a Nov. 21 hearing. Samour had wanted Karbach to advise the court of his plans and hold an arraignment on Dec. 9. Karbach said he may not know Lyons’ plea until January. He said there are many records to review to determine whether an insanity plea is appropriate, and said a person contracted by the defense to

review those had been unable to do so. Chief Deputy District Attorney Elizabeth Oldham said the office is waiting on mitigation information from the defense before determining whether to seek the death penalty. Samour set a status conference hearing for Dec. 9. He said he hopes the defense will know the plea and that the prosecution will have a death penalty decision by then. “Unless these decisions get made,” he said, “this case is not going to move.”

Driver accused of killing two women expected to plead guilty BY STEPHANIE MASON SMASON@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Taden Jones, a 2015 Arapahoe High School graduate accused of causing a car crash in Centennial that killed two women, is expected to enter a guilty plea at a Jan. 6 hearing, his attorney, Suzanne Rodgers, said. At the Nov. 18 arraignment, visiting Judge Ken Plotz scheduled a disposition hearing for 1:30 p.m. Jan. 6 at Arapahoe County District Court in Centennial. “The only thing we did today was postpone pleading guilty,” Rodgers said after the hearing. “We are working out some particulars of that guilty plea … It will be clear on that date that he will be taking responsibility for what happened.” Jones, 18, will most Jones likely not be sentenced on that date, Rodgers said. Jones — whose eight charges include two counts of vehicular homicide, reckless driving and driving under the influence — never wanted the case to go to trial, Rodgers said. He has been free on $50,000 bond since April 2. On April 1, Jones was driving an Acura sedan that crashed into the vehicle driven by Audrey Carolyn SEE JONES, P13

Thanksgiving food boxes are handed out About 500 receive holiday dinners from Integrated Family Community Services

Evan Whyte hands out candy as he joins with volunteers assisting at the Nov. 19 Integrated Family Community Services Thanksgiving food distribution.

BY TOM MUNDS TMUNDS@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Integrated Family Community Services enlisted the help of a small army of volunteers Nov. 19 to distribute boxes containing all the fixings for a Thanksgiving dinner to about 500 needy families and seniors. “This event has been held for at least 19 years,” said Sandra BlythePerry, IFCS executive director. “Each box contains all the items needed to prepare a traditional Thanksgiving meal plus other things like macaroni and cheese, spaghetti, spaghetti sauce and other items for meals for a few days after the holiday. We also provide a certificate so the family can pick up a turkey or ham at the supermarket. The typical box is made up to supply the needed items for a family of four.” She said it takes a lot of help for the organization to gather all the items needed to fill the food boxes and to distribute them. The IFCS director explained there are a lot of organizations that put on drives to collect food for the project, and there are numerous organizations and individuals who donated cash to buy additional food items as well as the supermarket gift certificates so each family can have a turkey or a ham. Once all the items are assembles at IFCS headquarters in Englewood, volunteers pitch in to pack the boxes donated by Cowboy Moving and Storage. On distribution day, hundreds of vehicles are lined up as families come and pick up the boxes and about 50 boxes are delivered to seniors. This was Jason Whyte’s first year as IFCS Thanksgiving food distribution volunteer. “I have volunteered to deliver Thanksgiving food baskets for the Englewood Lions Club the past 10

years, but this year Mike Flaherty and I signed up with the club to volunteer for this event,” the president of the Greater Englewood Chamber of Commerce said. “It is great to see so many volunteers from the Mountain Vista High School youth service club here today. It is great for them to help. They are a good example of volunteering for my children who are here with me today.” Ryan Lane, a Mountain Vista senior, said this is his fourth year volunteering at the IFCS event and it is one of his favorite volunteer activities. “Volunteering here helps me realize how fortunate I am,” he said. “Being here today also makes me happy because I am doing something to help others. This event is sort of special because we are volunteering to help needy families have a happy Thanksgiving.” Rose Berger smiled as volunteers loaded a food box into her car. “This help means so much to me,” the Englewood resident said. “I am a single mom with a little one and it is just wonderful to know someone is willing to help us like this. There would have been very little for Thanksgiving. But we will now have a nice Thanksgiving meal. I wish I could personally thank all those who are helping out today to make Thanksgiving nicer for so many people.” Bryce Schumacher, a Mountain Vista freshman, said this is his first time helping with the IFCS event and he is happy he came.

Rocky Vista students test medical skills in the wild BY TOM SKELLEY TSKELLEY@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Many Coloradans take to the trails to enjoy fall colors and get some exercise before winter’s arrival, but a recent trip to the great outdoors was serious business for students at Rocky Vista University. During the first week of November, a handful of students in the school’s Rural and Wilderness Medicine honors program participated in an orienteering course in Castlewood Canyon with members of the South Metro Fire Rescue Authority and the

Franktown Fire Protection District. Students in the program intend to become physicians who may find themselves in remote or dangerous areas during their careers. And the course trains students to locate and treat medical emergencies with minimal equipment and maximum difficulty. “It was great practice and a fantastic learning experience,” secondyear student McKenna Abercrombie said. “I unexpectedly became a ‘forest OB/GYN.’ ” With only a map and a compass, SEE ORIENTEERING, P7

“I like to do volunteer projects and have worked with the Mountain Vista club before. Today is a lot of fun and I like talking to all the people in the car as we load the food boxes,” he said. “Everyone is so appreciative that I get a tingle in my heart talking to them. It isn’t easy work but the smile of the people we are helping makes it all worth it.” Alicia Jones said it was an amazing day for her and her family as IFCS provided them a Thanksgiving food box. “IFCS is wonderful,” the former Denver resident said. “Our family was homeless and I went to Colorado Coalition for the Homeless. My case manager, Sandy Horner, hooked us up with the right resources and the right people to help us. We are now in transition housing. My husband is

working and I am on maternity leave and will soon be going back to work, so we are on the way to getting back on our feet.” She said all the IFCS help has truly been a blessing for the family that includes Jones, her husband, their 13-year-old son and their new baby. “All the help from IFCS, including the Thanksgiving food box, means so much,” she said. “There wouldn’t have been much of a Thanksgiving dinner but now we will have a traditional Thanksgiving dinner and we will sit down to a family meal in a nice home instead of being homeless or in a shelter.” While volunteers distributed food boxes, more items for Thanksgiving food boxes arrived. “We are bringing 100 boxes of Thanksgiving food items donated by members of the congregation of the Abiding Hope Lutheran Church,” John Reha said. “This program was started by Jim Cronin 17 years ago. We did 12 boxes that first year.” He said members of the church in Jefferson County donated cash or the food items that filled the 200 boxes the team delivered. The team delivered 100 boxes to IFCS and 100 to another Thanksgiving food distribution program. “It is a self-sustaining program and we look forward to it every year,” Reha said.

A merry night of cocoa, cookies, Santa and lights The city’s fifth annual holiday lighting event in Centennial Center Park draws crowd of 4,000 BY STEPHANIE MASON SMASON@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

New shoes, a Doc McStuffins doll and nunchakus are what brother and sister Michael Corcoran, 5, and Laila, 7, excitedly whispered into Santa’s ear. Behind them, waiting their turn, stood a line of children with hot cocoa mustaches and cookies in their hands. In the amphitheater just down the snow-patched hill, dancers from the Denver Ballet Theater Academy leaped and twirled to select pieces from “The Nutcracker” in Centennial’s fifth annual holiday lighting celebration Nov. 19 at Centennial Center Park. About 4,000 people attended the event, which culminated with a colorful tree-lighting finale. After the “Nutcracker” performances, choirs from Newton Middle School and Creekside, Peakview, Peabody, Sandburg and Homestead elementaries performed holiday songs leading up to the tree lighting. The cookies and hot chocolate were free. And the event was sponsored by Ting, the fiber internet company that will provide services for Centennial’s fiber broadband infrastructure initiative. The evening concluded with Mayor Cathy Noon and seven members of Centennial’s city council surrounding Santa as he plugged in the holiday lights.

It reminds me that all of the studying is worth it.” Ryan Shelton, a lieutenant with the South Metro training division, said this was the first time the authority trained in such an exercise with Rocky Vista students. He agreed with Haverty’s assessment that realistic practice of the skills learned in class will translate to better results once they are literally in the field. “Rocky Vista is on the right path to putting them on the course they’re going to work in,” Shelton said. “The next time we see them, we’ll be calling them doctor.”

students were tasked with finding volunteer “victims” in the wild and treating their simulated injuries, including bleeding head wounds, an internal injury and a woman experiencing premature labor. Students also practiced emergency skills such as guiding “walking-wounded” victims to safety and surgically opening airways on mannequins. “The entire exercise was a blast,” said Charles Haverty, another second-year student. “Most of the first two years of medical school are spent reading about things, but (a class like this) allows me to actually

Democrat wins state board of education race McClellan defeats incumbent Scheffel for District 6 seat BY CHRIS ROTAR CROTAR@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

In a race that wasn’t decided until 10 days after the polls closed, a Centennial Democrat has unseated a Parker Republican on the Colorado State Board of Education. Rebecca McClellan, a former member of the Centennial City Council, has emerged as the winner in one of the state’s closest races, the contest for the state board of education in the 6th Congressional District. McClellan defeated incumbent Debora Scheffel, who narrowly led after Election Night, Nov. 8, but fell

behind after further ballot counting in the ensuing days. McClellan took a 50.2 percent to 49.8 percent advantage by the time the Colorado Secretary of State’s Office released updated numbers on Nov. 18. That put McClellan more than 1,200 votes ahead, good McClellan enough to seal her election. McClellan — whose election gives the Democrats a 4-3 advantage on the board — said she will be the only member of the body with a child in public school. “As a public school parent, I will put our Scheffel children’s education first,” said McClellan, who served on

the Centennial council from 2006-14. “I’m proud that my campaign reflected a broad coalition of Coloradans who came together to support positive change.” Scheffel is the dean of education at Colorado Christian University and has served on the state board of education since 2011. “While I am disappointed, I know the people of the state of Colorado will continue to expect the very best from our public education system,” she said. “They will continue to want students at the center of each decision and for teachers and staffs to have the flexibility they need to meet the needs of all students. “I encourage everyone to remain diligent and to volunteer in classrooms and read to children. It is imperative that we provide great education opportunities for every child in the state of Colorado.”

The largest portion of District 6 is in Arapahoe County — where McClellan enjoyed her biggest advantage in votes — including Aurora, Centennial, Littleton and Greenwood Village, but it also includes Highlands Ranch and parts of Adams County. McClellan won about 53 percent of the vote in Arapahoe. Scheffel won roughly 60 percent of the vote in Highlands Ranch, but the conservative Douglas County community accounted for only about 15 percent of the ballots cast. McClellan congratulated Scheffel for “running a positive race that was a true competition of ideas.” “I’ll keep that positive and constructive spirit going forward,” McClellan said. “We have a diverse district and I pledge to work to ensure every child has access to a highquality public education for a bright future for them and our state.”

VOICES

Motivating thoughts can be the perfect spark for a successful comeback WINNING WORDS

Michael Norton

H

ave you ever found yourself way behind on a project? I mean really much further away from where you needed to be in order to get something completed by a certain day or time? The pressure mounts as the deadline draws closer, and with every minute or day that passes we almost feel like we are too far behind to close the gap and get it done. And then something happens, and that something is the comeback. We stand up, stretch our legs and arms, shake out the dazed and confused cloud in our heads, pour a cup of coffee and get busy, making up ground as we move closer to our goal or target. And with a big “whew” and sigh of

relief, maybe even catching our breath for a minute or two, we can enjoy our comeback and take satisfaction in our accomplishment. We see this play out every week in sports don’t we? Whether it is a team or an individual that has to rally and come from behind to win, it’s an incredible event to watch. And I don’t know about you, but the bigger the gap or larger the lead, the more I start rooting for the comeback to happen, even if I find myself rooting against my own team or player. I just love a comeback. And here we are approaching the end of the year. Although we have watched comebacks happen all around us and in many sports, many of us still face challenges and are up

against tight deadlines, quotas, and still have a need to finish the year in order to meet and exceed our expectations. Now I want you to think with me for just a moment. Think about the words that might be used in a locker room or in a board room, or at a sales meeting to inspire the team or group to come from behind and claim victory. We might hear words like: dig deep; get fired up; tough it out; drive; passion; purpose; resolve; commitment; luck; momentum or a shift in momentum; teamwork; get your head in the game; there is still time on the clock; we can do this.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Kudos for traffic calming After reading your article on the trafficcalming measures along Easter Avenue and Nobles Road, I wanted to express my appreciation for the traffic-calming measures. As a Cherry Knolls resident who lives along Easter and Nobles, I have witnessed an increase in traffic and speeding in our area and am concerned about the safety of our children walking to and from school. I am extremely thrilled with the new traffic calming

With holiday season at hand, seniors can benefit from eight travel tips LIVING AND AGING WELL

David Peck

W

ith the holidays upon us, one of the greatest gifts for grandparents is the gift of travel. Whether you are planning to visit grandchildren or taking a family excursion abroad, it is important to plan ahead to accommodate your needs. According to Orbitz.com, Denver International Airport will be the nation’s sixthbusiest airport over the Christmas holiday travel season (travel between December 22-28). Here are eight tips to help you travel with ease, regardless of whether you are traveling with a

companion or alone. 1. Talk with your spouse or your children about your travel wishes. Before booking a trip, have a conversation about when you would like to travel and to where. Some seniors may be excited about traveling abroad, while others may prefer a short car or train ride to stay relatively local. Consider your needs and wishes before solidifying any travel plans. 2. Plan ahead for the simplest routes. Research which mode of travel is the easiest and most efficient. Try to find routes that are more direct and require less travel

time. For example, you may want to avoid layovers, but if the trip you are planning does require a layover to get to the final destination, be sure to allow ample time to reach the connecting flight. 3. Request assistance in advance. If you or your spouse has physical limitations, or other medical needs that require minor assistance, call the airline in advance to request disabled seating, assistive devices, or to get help carrying your luggage. You can also request pre-boarding, if needed, when checking in for your flight. 4. Ensure the destination is pre-

pared. Call the hotels and tourist destinations you plan on visiting to ensure they can accommodate your needs. If you are traveling to visit family or friends, call to ensure that they understand your needs and are prepared to accommodate them. Giving them time to prepare will ensure you are comfortable and safe during your visit. 5. Print documents and make copies. Prepare a travel folder and include a full itinerary, along with copies of airplane or bus tickets, SEE AGING, P19

SMITH: A simple wish: the ability to cross the street without being run over FROM PAGE 10

A cool barefooted guy walks among his group, making gestures with his hands, just like those women on “The Price is Right,” only slower and more poetically. Kundalini yoga isn’t like that. “It derives its name through a focus on awakening kundalini energy through regular practice of meditation, pranayama, chanting mantra and yoga asana” (Wikipedia). Oh. Then I had to look up “pranayama.” It has something to do with breath control. The dog and I pant in the summer, but I don’t think that counts. What all of this amounts to is that there is another entire population that does not include me. The closest I get to belonging to any group, is rooting for my alma mater. That’s it. I am not inclined to discovering The Spirit, or finding the Principles of Life. I simply want to walk across the street to the mailbox without being

run over. “The modern man should take it from the navel upwards to the middle of the eyebrows. This is called Sakti-Chala.” I rarely quote the Bible, but this is a good one, from Proverbs. “A fool takes no pleasure in understanding, but only in expressing personal opinion.” That’s me. I am the fool on the hill. My life is very, very limited. This, writing, is 25 percent of it. Painting is another 25 percent. The other two-thirds are none of your business. Kundalini yoga “aims to cultivate the creative spiritual potential of a human to uphold values, speak truth, and focus on compassion and consciousness needed to serve and heal others.” That’s very impressive. Yoga is an old discipline from India. Unfortunately, the news that often comes out of India is completely contrary to everything else that yoga sits for. I will stick with walking the dog, and humming “Blue Moon.” They

NORTON: There is still time to catch up on projects and goals that matter FROM PAGE 12

So if you are finding yourself behind in the game or if you have fallen behind on projects, timelines, sales goals, or anything else, just remember that there is still time on the clock, and you can do this. One of the phrases listed above always resonates with me a little more than the others, “Get your head in the game.” I love this because for me whenever I feel like I am behind or pressured to perform, I start to get too distracted as I think about ways to catch up or come from behind to win. I generate too many ideas and experience too many feelings and just don’t have enough focus. As soon as I remind myself to find that focus, seek clarity, I can begin executing and getting done what needs to get done. And in that focus and clarity, I create space

for those other words like passion, purpose and momentum to take root in my subconscious, and then I am off to the races and definitely on my way to a comeback. How about you? Where are you as the end of the year approaches? Are you far ahead of your plan and able to coast to victory or are you in need of a come-from-behind win before the end of the year? Either way I would love to hear all about it at gotonorton@gmail. com. And when we remember that there is still time on the clock, and that we can find our focus and clarity in order to execute our comeback, it really will be a better than good week. Michael Norton is a resident of Castle Rock, the former president of the Zig Ziglar Corporation, a strategic consultant and a business and personal coach.

New pediatric helicopter will serve 120-mile radius infants,” said Kathleen Mayer, director of Flight For Life Colorado. Flight For Life Colorado is the critical care transport service of Centura Health, a network including 17 hospitals, two senior living communities and more than 100 other physician practices in the region. Children’s Hospital Colorado was founded in 1908. Its 16 locations in Colorado — including Highlands Ranch — provide a network of pediatric care. The new aircraft will allow Children’s pediatric teams to respond more quickly and efficiently, Mayer said. “The metro-area traffic is getting to be more and more of a factor for us,” she said. The helicopter, an Airbus H130 T2

BY JESSICA GIBBS JGIBBS@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Flight For Life Colorado and Children’s Hospital Colorado have announced a new addition to their emergency services — a helicopter uniquely designed to transport pediatric patients and newborns within a 120-mile service area of metro Denver. The helicopter, expected to take flight in 2017, will be based in metro Denver and staffed by nurses and respiratory therapists from flight crews at Children’s Hospital Colorado. “For several years our newborn team has been traveling substantial distance by ground to respond to critically ill

leased by Air Methods Corp., also provides some independence. The pediatric crew was previously sharing a helicopter with teams focused on treating older patients, Mayer said. However, the needs of pediatrics crews are more than what it could offer. The other aircraft performs well at high altitudes, Mayer said, particularly during rescues. And it has good horsepower. What it lacks is the space required for equipment used in pediatric and infant care. Joe Darmofal, director of the flight team, outreach and education at Children’s Colorado, said the pediatric helicopter will have approximately double the interior space and will carry

an incubator weighing more than 300 pounds, plus other equipment used in newborn transport. Pediatric teams would typically serve about 1,000 patients a year, he said. That number is expected to grow with the new helicopter’s help. Children’s has brought on a second pediatric team, he said, so two crews will be available 24/7. “We’re doing quite a bit of training between now and when the helicopter rolls out,” he said. The training of crews, which typically consist of three to four people, will include night-vision goggle training, safety training, survival training and training of how medical crews interact with pilots during calls.

JONES: Arapahoe grad’s plea date postponed FROM PAGE 4

Burton, 77, near the intersection of South Colorado Boulevard and East Peakview Circle. Burton and her passenger, Gayle Brown Buckwalter, 82, died. According to the arrest affidavit, Jones admitted to having three beers before the crash. Jones’ toxicology report was not in the court files, a court administrator said. Jones was also found to be in possession of a fake South Carolina license that said he was 23. Responding Arapahoe County Deputy Evan Driscoll wrote that

Jones asked, as they were leaving the scene, “Am I getting a ticket for the crash?” Although Jones cannot legally contact the victims’ families directly, Rodgers said, he has tried reaching out to them through the district attorney’s office. Members from the victims’ families, who attended the hearing, expressed frustration with the lengthy court process and the extended date. “I personally have found a spot for forgiveness, but that does not negate the need for justice,” said Beth Johnson, Burton’s daughter.

Putting From agriculture to health care, professionals use their skills to assist others BY KYLE HARDING KHARDING@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

S

ince the late 1990s, Stan Brown and his wife, Tami, have been teaching Kazakhstani farmers to grow apples and other fruit trees. The Browns live in Castle Rock now, but they lived full-time in Kazakhstan until 2010. Stan returns to the Central Asian country several times a year as the project manager for the orchard management training program they founded there with the help of IDEAS, a Littletonbased nonprofit group for which Tami is director of international operations. They also run a for-profit tree nursery there. “It’s training poor farmers how to improve their lives,” Stan said. Kazakhstan is not the only country where IDEAS operates — and agriculture is far from the only field it has professionals in. IDEAS has more than 100 people doing longterm assignments in 14 countries, including Thailand, Jordan, India and Egypt, while another 20 to 40 per year go on short-term trips. Their projects range from nursing to dentistry to teaching and information technology. “Our mission is to demonstrate love in tangible ways,” says Sarah Rymer, director of communications and recruiting for IDEAS. “Our specific niche is professional skillsets.”

faith work to

By IRS standards, IDEAS is not a faith-based charity, Rymer said, but most of the group’s work is in partnership with local entities that are. Volunteers sign a statement of faith and are mostly Christian. However, Rymer said, IDEAS does not evangelize. “We are not traditional missionaries,” she said.

Birthplace of apples Kazakhstan has a rich history of fruit tree cultivation — in fact, the first apples were cultivated there. When the Browns moved there, however, the country’s orchards were in disrepair and its farmers had fallen behind on modern techniques. “The agriculture had fallen into a very sad state because of the economic collapse of the Soviet Union,” Stan said. After taking a survey trip to the country, the orchard project was born. “We had observed that the geography was very similar to eastern Washington,” Stan said. Washington is the leading appleproducing state in the U.S., growing 10 to 12 billion a year, mostly in the rural central and eastern portions of the state, according to the Washington Apple Commission. “It’s been very encouraging to see the fruit industry there take on modern elements and be productive,” Stan said of Kazakhstan. Children of missionaries, the Browns were both raised abroad, Stan in Pakistan and Tammy in Kenya. They met at Wheaton College in Illinois and have paired their SEE FAITH, P15

Members of the Karen ethnic group in Thailand study to become medics. The education program is administered by volunteers from IDEAS, a Littleton charity.

SKILLS-BASED VOLUNTEERING The Council for International Development calls skills-based volunteering “experteering.” “In increasing numbers, professionals are turning to travel and international service as a way to diversify their experience and help them start careers in the global development sector,” the New Zealandbased organization’s website says. The group urges would-be volunteers to find projects

that match their professional skills. For IDEAS, a Littleton-based nonprofit organization, those skills run the gamut from lab technicians to doctors and dentists in the health care field, to agriculture with mechanics, irrigation technicians, agricultural cost accountants and agricultural engineers. According to Sarah Rymer, director of communications and recruiting for

IDEAS, teachers are the most in-demand career for the group and Jordan is the country with the most demand. Though IDEAS volunteers are mainly Christian, Rymer said that they don’t go overseas to spread their faith. “It’s truly being an accountant or a teacher or a nurse,” she said. IDEAS can be found online at www.ideasworld.org.

professional skills with religious beliefs to work in developing countries for decades, with Stan working in business development and Tammy in public health. Before Kazakhstan, they lived in Turkey. The biggest obstacle to getting westerners to work in Kazakhstan is a perception that it might be a dangerous or undesirable place to live, Stan said. “Because it has ‘stan’ in its name, people think ‘Pakistan, Afghanistan, war,’” he said.

dbt

However, he said the country is modern and has a lot to offer. “It’s a beautiful country with beautiful mountains,” he said. “When people over there ask us what Colorado is like, we say ‘it’s a lot like here.’ ” A family affair Stan and Tami’s daughter and son-in-law, Lauren and Shledon Nest, also work for IDEAS, as health care professionals in Thailand. Lauren, a nurse by training, grew up mainly in Kazakhstan, while her parents worked there. Now, she and Sheldon, a son of Colombian im-

migrants who was raised in New Jersey, administer a program that trains people from the Karen ethnic group in rural parts of Thailand to be health care professionals. “I never would have imagined myself working with Karen people,” Sheldon said via email. “But when I learned of this opportunity I jumped at the chance to be a part of something that has lasting impact.” Lauren and Sheldon met at Liberty University, a Christian school in Virginia, where Lauren received a nursing degree and Sheldon earned a degree in health promotion.

Sheldon went on to get a master’s degree in public health from Colorado School of Public Health while Lauren worked as an emergency room nurse in Fort Collins. The Nests have been in the city of Chiang Mai, in the northern part of Thailand, for more than a year now, and their daughter was born there eight months ago. They believe they were meant to help there, Lauren said in an email: “We believe that God has called us to use our professional skills to work with individuals and communities that are marginalized and have very little access to quality health care.”

‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ brings holiday happiness to Lone Tree BY SONYA ELLINGBOE SELLINGBOE@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

“It’s an iconic and important story,” said actor Jamie Horton as he looked forward to “a season inhabiting the character of George Bailey. I care a lot about it and am very fond of the piece — it’s really special as a live radio play …” Horton, currently an associate professor of drama at Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire, performed with the Denver Center Theatre Company for its first 23 years and was a much-loved figure in the Denver theater

community. He has returned regularly over the holidays to perform with Stories on Stage and in an annual Christmas reading at the Tattered Cover Book Store (Dec. 12 this year.) This season, he will perform as George Bailey in Lone Tree Arts Center’s production of “It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play,” which runs Dec. 8-18. The play, adapted by Joe Landry from the 1946 movie that starred Jimmy Stewart as Bailey, will be directed by Randal Mylar, who also worked at DCTC in earlier years and helmed last year’s “Explorer’s Club” at Lone Tree, as well as

other productions. It will be presented as a live, 1940s-era radio broadcast, complete with an applause sign, commercial jingles and on-stage sound effects. A cast that includes Randy Moore, Stephanie Cozart, Mark Rubald, Michael Santo, Randy S. Pierre, Lisbeth Splawn and others will take on multiple roles as a few dozen characters. Bailey’s story unfolds one Christmas Eve as he reflects on his life and considers suicide. His guardian angel appears to show him good scenes from his past life and how it might have been had he not lived …

“It’s a lovely story,” Horton said. “The idea of having a chance to see how much one’s life means has special meaning to me.” He has not played this role before — although it seems like a natural for him. We spoke with Horton in New Hampshire, which is near where he and his wife, Nancy, met in high school, he said. In a sense, he has two homes: New England and Colorado … He spoke fondly of “flying into Denver and seeing the mountains again.” And he’ll be spending time with old friends, on and off stage. Rehearsals started Nov. 22.

I would like to thank the City Council and staff of the City of Centennial for budgeting the Neighborhood Traffic Management Program (NTMP) and its yearly implementation. The City’s Public Works Depart-

Also, this plan was approved by a large majority of residents who live along Easter and Nobles Road which include Cherry Knolls residents and a few of The Knolls residents that live along Easter, which have been affected by the increased traffic/ speeders.

World premiere of holiday play graces stage at Arvada Center

‘I’ll Be Home for Christmas’ tells overlapping stories set in California in 1969 BY SONYA ELLINGBOE SELLINGBOE@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

As it celebrates 40 years as an arts center, Arvada Center presents its first world premiere: “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” originated at the Arvada theater with music and lyrics by Arvada’s music director David Nehls and book by Kenn McLaughlin of Houston. The two have written musicals together before, but none has been performed in Nehls’ home theater. (Readers may have seen his “Trailer Park Musical” elsewhere in Denver a few years ago.) An interesting piece on creating a musical is included in the program: “Creating a new work for musical theater is one of the most thrilling journeys in the arts,” Nehls said in a program story about the show. Both writers grew up watching the ‘60s variety shows with their families—and both were aware of turmoil in the ‘60s as well, including strong responses to the war in Vietnam, where Simon has been. The play was first discussed in December 2012 after the two finished a show for McLaughlin’s theater in Houston. Nehls called with an idea and McLaughlin worked on it on the plane. Rod Lansberry, Arvada’s artistic director and producer, “reached out to Nehls after the past Christmas and the pair had a complete first draft by March. “The biggest change came late in the process with a different approach to Simon’s journey through the play … dialogue shifted in places … the ending is the hardest part to get right and we’re still working through it.” In June, a workshop was held with actors and a live audience. Lansberry said “getting live feedback led us to many insights and ideas that only helped us to solidify and improve the piece.” McLaughlin added: “We got to hear where the audience got lost and we got to hear what moved them … it’s a musical comedy with a very powerful story about a soldier and his return from Vietnam. Balancing the power of the story and making sure

IF YOU GO “I’LL BE HOME FOR CHRISTMAS” runs through Dec. 23 at the Arvada Center, 6901 Wadsworth Blvd., Arvada. Tickets, $53-$77, 720-898-7200, arvadacenter.org. we honor all the voices of that story while we surround it with some joyful singing and dancing — it is a great and thrilling challenge indeed.” It’s Dec. 14, 1969, on the set at Television City, Hollywood, California. The set is a living room where the Bright Family is to perform its annual Christmas variety show, a widely watched national performance. Dana (Noah Racey), Louise (Megan Van De Hay) and daughter Maggie (Kim McClay) disagree about the act Maggie is to be in. Maggie has choreographed a new, more up-to-date act and mom doesn’t like it. In the middle of rehearsal, son Simon (Jake Mendes) arrives home. He is a former teen idol, now a decorated war hero, troubled by his return to civilian life and haunted by war experiences. He doesn’t want to wear his uniform, absolutely doesn’t want any mention of his medal and can’t get enthused about performing. But he eventually does a solo number well. There are side stories going on — perhaps too many. A pair of wimpy writers keep showing up and being rejected. The Brights’ friend Carol Marie (Sharon Kay White) is depressed about not having a man at Christmas when cowboy singer Len Ramble (Andrew John Diessner) appears with a ballad, “Christmas on Highway 13.” Maggie has befriended a young black ensemble member, who is an orphan, who remembers watching the Bright Family show with the nuns. The engaging show runner, Ruby (Sheryl McCallum) also has a story … And then, President Nixon was in the audience until his agents thought the tap dancers sounded like gunshots and evacuated him, we are told … This is basically an appealing show with some bright new music … the cast is talented, the choreography is sound. Perhaps a bit more sorting and smoothing is in order, but audiences will lean back and soak up the holiday cheer as it’s presented here and now. For it to go national, which we’d love to see, it probably needs some more work.

Residents craft cards for Children’s Hospital Colorado Kate Blakeman is one of seven artists recognized

Kate Blakeman, 12, shows off one of her art pieces. Blakeman was picked as one of Children’s Hospital Colorado’s holiday card artists for 2016 for a festive drawing she created of Steamboat Springs. “I really like doing different things with art,” said Blakeman, who has been cancer-free for more than five years. ALEX DEWIND

TO BUY A CARD To purchase one of Children’s Hospital Colorado’s holiday cards, visit www.holidaycardproject.org. All proceeds go to the hospital’s Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders.

BY ALEX DEWIND ADEWIND@COLORADOCOMMUNITY

When Highlands Ranch resident Kate Blakeman was 5 years old, she was diagnosed with acute lymphocytic leukemia, a type of blood cancer. The timing was just six weeks after her family had moved to south metro Denver from Chicago. She was in treatment for about two years and spent about four weeks at Children’s Hospital Colorado. “They did a phenomenal job of taking care of her,” her mother, Kathleen, said. “You do feel like family.” Blakeman, now 12 and more than five years cancer-free, likes to sing, read and bike ride with her dog. She also loves to draw, specifically animations, people and animals. This year, her drawing of Steamboat Springs — the Colorado ski town that her family visits almost every year — will be featured on Children’s Hospital Colorado’s annual holiday cards. “It’s a cute little town,” Blakeman said. “Over the streets they have wreaths and bows. It’s just so pretty with all of the snow.” Centennial’s Adam Ficker, 16, had his artwork of Aurora selected as one of the winning holiday drawings.

Ficker was diagnosed with nephroblastoma, a kind of kidney cancer, at just 15 months old, but is cancer-free today. Every June, patients or former patients of the Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders at Children’s Hospital Colorado create holiday artwork. In August, staff and parents vote for three favorite drawings. There is also an open house for representatives who are interested in sponsoring a drawing for the holiday season. Winning designs are made into cards and sold online and throughout the community. All proceeds go to the Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders. This year, Blakeman was one of seven artists selected. She started brainstorming her design several months ago. Her mother encouraged her to take anything she loved and incorporate a Christmas theme. So Blakeman chose one of her favorite ski towns. She crafted a street lined with colorful buildings covered in blue snowflakes. Blakeman, a snowboarder, made sure to include a “Ski and Board Shop.”

Cups runneth over in ancient treatment getting new attention Parker spa offers approach favored by Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps BY TOM SKELLEY TSKELLEY@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Most people wouldn’t think to look for innovative technology and wellness treatments in one of Parker’s oldest buildings, but that’s what’s in store at Parker Day & Med Spa. The spa, at 19767 Pikes Peak Ave., blends the old and the new in both its Victorian appearance and the treatments offered within. Cutting-edge tools like lasers and ionic equalizers are combined with ancient treatments like massage and an ancient Asian practice that’s recently gotten recognition: cupping. “There’s definitely been quite a bit more interest in it since the Olympics,” manager Nadia Ker said. Swimming fans may remember Michael Phelps’ bruised physique during the 2016 Games in Rio. Phelps and other cupping proponents claim it relieves muscle pain and decreases tension after they train and compete, giving them a competitive edge. Owner Tina Long said interest in cupping may be new but she’s offered the treatment since 1993. Clients seek the treatment for migraines, improved circulation and carpal tunnel syndrome, among other maladies, she said. Everyday use forces muscles and skin to tighten, she said, and cupping pulls them loose. “It’s literally sucking your tissues up into this cup,” Long said. “It forces

stretching within the skin, muscle tissue, fascia, tendons and ligaments.” Folk medicine practitioners have used cupping for centuries with the goal of stimulating the immune system, draining toxins from the body and improving blood flow with bamboo, glass or plastic cups. At Long’s spa, clients begin the treatment by standing on a treadmilllike movement plate that vibrates vigorously to ramp up blood circulation. The next step is lying on a massage table as lasers pass over the client to heal the skin. A massage follows, during which the cups are applied to the back. The cups are gently set on the skin, then a valve is pumped to extract air and create suction. “A lot of people aren’t used to the feeling because it’s a pull, not a push,” said massage therapist Anna Robertson, who likens the technique to the opposite of pushing on pressure points. “It’s kind of a sucking, pinchy feeling,” said Rich Gerber, a seven-year client at the spa who said he’s been getting cupping treatments about once a month for the past 18 to 24 months. Despite increased interest in the procedure, there isn’t much clinical research on cupping’s effectiveness. Researcher Edzard Ernst of the University of Exeter wrote that there is some evidence that it may relieve pain, but it is difficult to evaluate claims of other health benefits from the practice. But, though he admits he was initially skeptical, Gerber swears by the treatment to relieve pain in his muscles and lower back. “The first time it was like `What are you doing to me?’ ” he said. “But the more and more they did it, the better and better I felt.” One unavoidable side-effect that comes with the treatment is bruising, but Gerber and Long said they generate more laughter than discomfort. Long avoids placing cups on clients’ necks. For some reason, she said, “They don’t want their spouses to see bruises on their necks.”

Bruins lose a close one Valor edges Cherry Creek in 5A state semifinals BY TOM MUNDS TMUNDS@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Valor Christian and Cherry Creek slugged it out in the Nov. 26 Class 5A state football semifinal game at the Stutler Bowl in Greenwood Village. The game came down to the final

seconds as Valor kicked a field goal as time ran out to edge Cherry Creek 10-7. Valor, which also defeated Creek in last year’s semifinals, moves on to play Pomona for the state championship Dec. 3. “We played our butts off and our kids can hold their heads high because we battled right from the start to the game was over,” Cherry Creek coach Dave Logan said. “We played through a lot of adversity this year and I am as proud of this team as any team I have coached

over the last 24 years. Every player did his best, laid it on the line, but unfortunately we came up a little short.” Valor’s coach agreed it was an intense game. “They probably deserved to win the game as much as we did, but we were able to make that one more play,” Valor Christian coach Rod Sherman said.

KEEPING SCORE WITH... JP MARINARO What is your favorite movie? My favorite movie is “The Lord of The Rings” trilogy because I enjoy an action/ thriller that keeps me on the edge of my seat every time. What is your favorite pre-competition meal? Over-easy eggs on toast because I just like eggs. Why do you participate in sports? I participate in sports for the challenge to win and beat the other opponent and also because I love competition.

What is your favorite type of music and who is your favorite artist? My favorite favorite types of music are rap and classic rock. My favorite band is Led Zeppelin. What is your favorite subject in school? My favorite subject in school is biology because I love learning more about the world we live in. Do you have any pre-competition superstitions or rituals? I do. My pre-game ritual is when I get into the car, I put on my music and look out the window until I get to the rink, then we go out for team warmups once we are all at the rink.

Thompson, who helped Littleton win the 1987 and 1989 4A state championships, OVERTIME died June 9 at the age of 45 from multiple organ failure. Thompson’s wife, Michelle, mother Sue, brother Chip and aunt Jan will be at the game for the halftime tribute that will have a commemoJim Benton rative Littleton jersey unveiled. Ron Vlasin, Thompson’s coach, will take part in the halftime ceremony. Thompson averaged 28.5 points and nine assists a game as a senior and was the 1989 Colorado High School player of the year. Thompson played college basketball at Texas A&M and Oklahoma State. He played for four National Basketball Association teams, including the Denver Nuggets, and was head coach at the University of Texas at San Antonio from 2006 until March of 2016. “It’s a privilege for our team, our school and our whole community to have a chance to honor Brooks Thompson and his family,” said current Lions boys basketball coach Ryan Fletcher. “His contributions as an athlete and person are an inspiration to our current players and the entire Littleton family.” Running strong Mountain Vista’s girls cross country team finished second to Broomfield in the Class 5A state cross country meet in October. However, the Vista girls haven’t stopped running.

Six of the seven Vista girls who took part in the state meet ran in Arizona, with freshman Sarah O’Sullivan leading the charge. She was 15th overall with a time of 18:17, but was fourth among the runners competing for the team title. Freshman Jenna Fitzsimmons was seventh and Caroline Eck, recovering from a lower-leg injury, was ninth among the athletes in the team competition. “Hard to say what our chances are at the nationals with so many great teams,” coach Jonathan Dalby said.

BENTON: Area athletes are selected by group to join all-state teams for volleyball, gymnastics FROM PAGE 28

“A top-10 finish in the U.S. is certainly a goal. We are super excited for the kids and eager to see how they will do against the nation’s best. “It would have been easy for them to give in after being second at state, but these are resilient kids.” Better viewing prediction I’ve never been one to go out on a limb and make a prediction, but I’m making a bold statement about the Class 5A state championship football game between Pomona and Valor Christian in Denver. I’m confident that fans will be able to

see the numbers on the jerseys of the Valor players, since the Eagles sported new jerseys with distinguishable numbers during their semifinal game against Cherry Creek. All-State volleyball, gymnastics CHSAANow.com released its all-state teams for volleyball and gymnastics, which included several area athletes. Melissa Evans from Highlands Ranch, Rock Canyon’s Skylar Lane, Alyssa Oswald of Mountain Vista and Jasmine Schmidt of Chaparral were named to the Class 5A first team. Evans was tabbed player of the year. Ali Travis and Sam Weber of Holy Family were first-team 4A selections.

Brooke Weins of Pomona was the Class 5A gymnast of the year and the Panthers’ Tracey Boychuk was coach of the year. Joining Weins on the first team were Kaylie Berens of Pomona, Lakewood’s Amber Bell and Kesley Boychuk of Pomona. Rachel Cody of Standley Lake, Camille Dipaola of Green Mountain and Emily Graham of Green Mountain were Class 4A first-team picks. Cody was the 4A gymnast of the year and Green Mountain’s Sandi Peterson the coach of the year. DU soccer team advances Three starters on the University

of Denver’s men’s soccer team — which edged Washington 2-1 Nov. 26 during a second-round NCAA tournament playoff game — graduated from south metro high schools. Junior midfielder Graham Smith is from Highlands Ranch, redshirt sophomore defender Scott Devoss is from Arapahoe and junior defender AJ Fuller went to Heritage. 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 303-566-4083.

FOOTBALL: Both teams at 5A state semifinals made interceptions, penalties in close game FROM PAGE 28

late in the first quarter when Valor mixed passes and runs on a 10-play, 80-yard scoring drive to go ahead 7-0 with 1:21 left in the period. There were outstanding plays by both teams, but both teams also made mistakes. Each team made two interceptions, plus there were a blizzard of penalty flags that often stifled promising drives so the Eagles’ lead stood up until Cherry Creek (9-4) mounted an 80-yard scoring drive and added the extra point to tie the score at 7-7 early in the second half.

It looked like the game might go into overtime, but Valor (10-3) got the ball on its own 45-yard line with 2:06 left in the game. They drove to the Bruins’ 7-yard line and kicked the winning field goal with no time left on the clock. “We played hard and had our chances like missing two field goals,” Logan said. “But, as I said before, I am very proud of these guys because they did their best today and all season long.” Bruin quarterback Trey Windham completed 9-of-24 passes for 81 yards and carried the ball 22 times for 154 yards. Kevin Palacion carried the

ball six times for 31 yards. Palacion, a 5-foot-4, 195-pound senior, said he has always played fullback, a player who is called upon to batter his way to gain the tough yardage. “People underestimate me because I am short, but I am strong, quick and use my big body to run hard,” he said. “I am short so I can hide behind the big linemen to drive inside and get those dirty yards we needed.” Defensively, the Bruins had three players who made nine tackles each, Trey Jones, Yanni Staviopoulos and Curtis Appleton.

Cherry Creek senior Trevor Brown is one of the few Bruins who play both offense and defense. In the Nov. 26 game, he was a blocking back, a tight end, a linebacker and a down lineman. “It was a tough game today. Valor played a heck of a game and so did we but we just came up a little short. I feel honored to join my teammates playing in the final four against the best teams in the state,” he said, his face reflecting the disappointment of the season coming to an end. “I just play where they need me.”

But the campaign they represent is an all-out attempt to permanently purge competitive athletics of doping. “People are getting the impression that everyone’s dirty,” Goucher, a topranked marathoner based in Boulder, told The Associated Press. “We need to build the sport back up in a positive light.” That’s the goal of the Clean Sport Collective, a new anti-doping initiative making a splash on social media. It launched this month with an aggressive campaign on Facebook, Twitter and other platforms. Olympians and amateurs alike have been publicly pledging to live, train and compete “clean” — totally free of banned performance-enhancing drugs — and

taking selfies aimed at both inspiring and shaming track-and-field competitors, swimmers, cyclists, triathletes and others. Significantly, their bully pulpit is getting a boost from the corporate world: Brooks Running, Oiselle, Skechers and other companies have signed on as partners. Shanna Sparks Burnette, a former Division I collegiate runner, co-founded the Collective to get the focus off the cheaters and back onto athletes committed to drug-free achievement, whether at an Olympics or a local 5K. “We really wanted to make a positive impact and change the narrative to celebrate the brands and all of the amazing and inspiring people who are doing it the right way,” she said. “The mentality is `win at all costs — do whatever you can do to get ahead.’ As a society of people, we need to not do that to each other.” It’s been an especially tough year on the doping front. Russia’s track and field federation remains barred from international

competition, and all but one member of the team was forced to sit out the Rio Olympics after independent investigators appointed by the World Anti-Doping Agency issued a damning report into widespread use of banned substances. Kenya, too, has been caught up in dozens of offenses implicating dopers who robbed clean athletes of winnings and glory. Last month, former Chicago and Boston Marathon champion Rita Jeptoo had her doping ban doubled to four years and was stripped of her Boston title from 2014, when she’d been hailed as a hero for winning the iconic race’s first running since the deadly 2013 finish line bombings. Huddle, a two-time Olympian, said it’s gotten to the point where she wonders about some of the runners who outkick her in international competition. “Sports are supposed to be inspiring to people watching them, but there’s so much cynicism implanted now,” said Huddle, who wore the Collective’s tattoo on the back of her hand while finishing third at this month’s TCS New

York City Marathon, her debut at the 26.2-mile distance. The upstate New York native, who now lives and trains in Providence, Rhode Island, is calling for a one-strikeyou’re-out approach to the doping scourge — a lifetime ban, not just a brief suspension, for those who test positive once for a banned substance. “That would put the fear in the back of an athlete’s mind: `What if I get caught?’” she said. “Right now there’s just not enough risk.” The Clean Sport Collective means business. Pro athletes who take the pledge promise to donate $25,000 to the nonprofit if they ever test positive. Those opting for the extra step of certification have to get bloodwork and a “biological passport” that attests they’re drug-free. Corporate partners, likewise, commit to sponsor and invest in clean athletes only. And athletes of all abilities are using the hashtag #cleansportco to post about their vows. SEE DOPING, P39

Knee Arthritis Pain: One HUGE Mistake And Two “Smart Moves� Doctor’s Simple Advice Gets Rave Reviews By Patients Lucky Enough To Give It A Try

By Matt Edgar America’s Health Writer

Denver- Have you been told that exercise will help your knee arthritis pain? Well... has it helped? If it hasn’t, one local doctor has a very good reason why. Not only that - he says if you are trying to exercise with knee arthritis - you might be making a HUGE mistake. Sounds crazy? Yes it does. In fact, I thought it was a ridiculous thing to say. That is until I talked to some of his patients who gave him rave reviews. Many said he completely changed their life. :KHQWKH\¿UVWFDPHWRWKHRI¿FH WKHLU NQHH DUWKULWLV SDLQ ZDV VR bad they could barely walk and were scheduled for total knee replacement surgery. In a relatively short period of time, they cancelled surgery and are enjoying their lives again. Why is exercising a HUGE mistake and what does this doctor recommend that is helping so many knee arthritis sufferers who come to see them from all over the state? Double Edged Sword The doctor says that exercising with knee arthritis is a double edged sword. It is true, your knee joints need motion to be healthy. And lack of motion can be very detrimental.

Without motion joints become “sick.â€? And in theory exercising should help knee arthritis. But here is the BIG problem: Knee arthritis is condition that dries XSWKHOXEULFDWLQJĂ€XLGVLQ\RXUNQHH It also changes the joint surface and creates bone spurs. Because of these changes - exercising on an arthritic knee can cause more swelling, more pain and more arthritic changes. Imagine driving your car without any oil. What happens? The engine parts scrape together and wear out. You can’t simply drive your car more and make it better. And in many cases - you simply can’t just exercise your knee and make it better, either. What’s the answer? In a car it’s simple - put in more oil. And then make sure the oil level is correct and it is changed when necessary. With your knee joints - it is a little more complicated. 7KHPDMRUOXEULFDWLQJĂ€XLGLQ\RXU NQHH MRLQW LV FDOOHG V\QRYLDO Ă€XLG 6\QRYLDOĂ€XLGLVWKHĂ€XLGWKDWÂłGULHV upâ€? when you suffer with arthritis. But there is good news: Now doctors can inject one of the building EORFNVRIV\QRYLDOĂ€XLGGLUHFWO\LQWR your knee joint. This building block of synovial

Making Knee Arthritis Pain Worse: Research has discovered that people are suffering with arthritis much younger than expected. Making the right treatment choices now can possibly stop the progression and eliminate the pain.

Ă€XLGLVFDOOHGK\DOXURQLFDFLG $QG when hyaluronic acid is injected directly into the knee joint, many experts believe it helps lubricate the joint. Some say it is like squirting oil on a rusty door hinge. This allows the knee joint to glide more smoothly and often reduces or even eliminates pain. And here is the most important

part: Now that the joint is lubricated and can move with less or no pain  VSHFLÂżFH[HUFLVHVFDQEHDWUHPHQdous help. That’s why the doctors (when patients qualify) treat knee arthritis patients with hyaluronic acid injections FIRST and then prescribe a very VSHFLÂżF UHKDELOLWDWLRQ DQG H[HUFLVH program specially developed to help knee arthritis pain. This comprehensive knee arthritis pain program is called, “P.A.C.E.â€? and has been getting wonderful results. So what is the HUGE mistake? If you suffer with knee arthritis and are exercising and the pain is either not getting better - or getting worse - you may be making a mistake. You may actually be making things worse. And that’s the last thing you want to do. What are the two “smart moves?â€? If you have knee arthritis pain, look into viscosupplementation with hyaluronic acid. In many cases treatment with hyaluronic acid followed E\DVSHFLÂżFUHKDELOLWDWLRQRUH[HUFLVH program can get results when everything else has failed. In fact, it is not uncommon to get pain relief just from the hyaluronic acid treatments alone - without doing any rehabilitation or

Knee Pain Treatment Craze In Denver

After thousands already helped knee pain sufferers face 48 hour cut off to get risk free screening for incredibly popular treatment (ORI) - The clock is ticking. There is only 48 hours to go. If you suffer with knee arthritis pain and would like to get a risk free knee pain screening to see if the experts at Osteo Relief Institute in Greenwood Village, CO can help you with their extremely popular knee pain relief program - read this right now. Here is why: For the past several years, the experts at Osteo Relief Institute have been literally swarmed with knee arthritis sufferers looking for relief. Nearly all these knee pain sufferers chose Osteo Relief for one reason - their top-notch knee pain relief program featuring viscosupplementation with hyaluronic acid and specially designed rehabilitation program. The Secret To Success? The experts at Osteo Relief Institute believe one of the biggest reasons for their success is the fact that they have some of the best technology money can buy. Laser Guided Digital Imaging The clinic uses extremely advanced imaging equipment that allows them to see directly into the knee joint that they are treating. This advanced imaging is called, “Laser Guided Digital Imaging� and many experts believe is the difference between success and failure with this knee pain treatment. And probably the best thing about this technology is that it has allowed the experts at Osteo Relief Institute to get results with knee pain when so many others have failed. What Is This Treatment? This treatment is viscosupplementation with hyaluronic acid (HA). Those are big medical terms that ba-

sically means this... When you have knee arthritis WKH OXEULFDWLQJ Ă€XLG V\QRYLDO Ă€XLG  in your knee joint dries up. This means instead of gliding smoothly - your bones start to rub and grind against each other. This causes a little pain in the beginning - but over time the pain steadily gets worse until it is excruciating. Hyaluronic acid works so well because it is like “joint oil.â€? It is a natural substance and is one of the natural EXLOGLQJEORFNVRIWKHV\QRYLDOĂ€XLG that lubricates your knee. Scientists and researchers discovered this natural building block to V\QRYLDO Ă€XLG LQ WKH URRVWHUÂśV FRPE - that big red thing on top of the roosters head. It is extracted from WKHURRVWHUVFRPESXULÂżHGDQGFRQcentrated. When it is injected directly into your knee joint, it is like squirting oil on a rusty door hinge. Hyaluronic acid allows your joints to glide more smoothly eliminating a lot of the rubbing, grinding and pain. Why You Should Try This Even If You’ve Already Had Similar Treatments Without results... “We have been able to help so many knee pain sufferers - even many who have already tried other injections like Synvisc, Supartz, Orthovisc and even Hyalgan. We use special and very advanced low-dose videoĂ€XRURVFRS\LPDJLQJFDOOHGÂł+RORJLF Digital Imagingâ€? so we can see right into the joint. This allows us to put the Hyalgan exactly where it needs to be. Studies show doctors doing joint LQMHFWLRQV ZLWKRXW Ă€XRURVFRS\ PLVV the joint up to 30% of the time.â€? said the director of Arthritis Treatment at Osteo Relief Institute.

Hyalgan Injected Directly Into Knee Joint Like “Joint Oil�

Successful Treatment - Hyalgan being precisely injected directly into the knee joint using Hologic digital imaging. Advanced imaging allows treatments to be as precise as possible. Hyalgan can lubricate the joint and decrease pain.

Osteo Relief Institute is a state of the art medical facility offering only the best technology. And that’s not all - Osteo Relief Institute has a complete knee relief program called “P.A.C.E.� to make sure you get the most pain relief and the best possible results from treatment. “Every case is individual. Some patients get quite a bit of relief right away - others take a little more time. But most have been extremely happy and the results usually last for at least 6 months. Patients who were suffering for years with bad knee pain are getting their lives back... going for walks again and exercising. It’s amazing to see. They tell all their friends - that’s why we are swarmed. I can’t tell you how many patients have cancelled their total knee replacement surgeries.� added one of the doctors.

Research Shows Doctors Miss The Joint Space About 30% Of The Time Without Advance Imaging

Failed Treatment - the injection (and Hyalgan) misses the joint space. Research shows this occurs up to 30% of the time without the use of Hologic Digital Imaging to guide the injection. This is why Hyalgan may not have worked for you.

How To Get It If you have knee pain, the doctors and staff would like to invite you for a risk free screening to see if you are a candidate for Hyalgan treatments and the P.A.C.E program. All you have to do is call 720-500-104 right now and when the scheduling specialist answers the phone tell her you would like your free “Knee Pain Screening.� Your screening will only take about 25-30minutes... you will get all your ques-tions answered and leave knowing if you have possibly found the solutionto your knee pain. But You Must Do This RIGHT NOW The specialists at Osteo Relief Institute can only accept a limited amount of new patients each month for this screening. And because of the demand, we can only guarantee you a spot if you call within the next

exercising at all. And the results can be dramatic. If you are thinking about giving hyaluronic acid treatments a try this is VERY IMPORTANT: In our opinion the doctor you choose should use advanced imaging technology VXFK DV ÀXRURVFRS\WRJXLGHWKHLQjections and make sure the hyaluronic acid goes where it is supposed to. Laser guided digital imaging is one of the best technologies to guide injections. Research shows that without ÀXRURVFRS\ GRFWRUV PLVV WKH MRLQW space up to 30% of the time. Obviously, if the joint space is missed - the treatment cannot work. If you have already had viscosupplementation without this advanced imaging technology and it did not work - you may want to give it another try with a doctor who uses this cutting edge technique to get the best results possible. So, if you suffer with knee arthritis pain, talk to a specialist about viscosupplementation with hyaluronic acid especially if exercise is not working or making things worse. And make sure the doctor you choose works in a state-of-the-art medical facility and uses advanced ÀXRURVFRSLFLPDJLQJ /LNH ODVHU guided digital imaging) to guide the injections to make sure the treatments have the best chance to work. For more information on viscosupplementation for knee arthritis or to get a free screening to see if this treatment is right for you, one of the specialists at Osteo Relief Institute can be reached at 720-500-104. 48 hours. If you are suffering in pain - make the call right now so you can make your appointment today. Why not take 20 minutes for your risk free screening to discover how you may be able to end your knee arthritis pain? So call 720-500-104 right now DQG ¿QGRXW LI WKH H[SHUWV DW 2VWHR Relief Institute can help you like they have already helped thousands of others in your community.
