County OKs oil, gas rules Two-year process clears way for faster approvals By Deborah Grigsby

dgrigsby@ourcoloradonews.com

Centennial resident Grayson McGraw says historic gravesites and mausoleums, like this one in Denver, are an important part of any state’s history. However, many gravesites in his home state of Louisiana, some dating back to the 1700s, are slowly being swallowed by the Gulf of Mexico. McGraw hopes to raise awareness — and about $2,000 — to complete an hour-long film documentary. Photo by Deborah Grigsby

Saving Katrina’s last victims Filmmaker to document Gulf ’s sinking cemeteries By Deborah Grigsby

dgrigsby@ourcoloradonews.com Nearly eight years after Hurricane Katrina ravaged the Gulf Coast, the infamous “storm of the century” is still claiming victims.

But these victims don’t complain, nor do they even ask for help. These victims are among the more than 20 historic coastal cemeteries that are losing their battle with Louisiana’s eroding coastlines. “Many of the graves there date back to the 1700s and 1800s,” said Centennial resident Grayson McGraw, who hopes that through a documentary film project, he can garner public attention to save and possibly

Wings of Hope gets supersonic support SR-71 pilot speaks at event targeting pancreatic cancer By Deborah Grigsby

dgrigsby@ourcoloradonews.com It’s no secret that Brian Schul likes speed. The retired Air Force pilot once flew the SR-71 Blackbird, the world’s fastest — and perhaps most classified — aircraft. But even for a guy who’s flown more than three times the speed of sound, some things, like a cure for pancreatic cancer, can’t come fast enough. Schul, who lost both his mother and brother to pancreatic cancer, was the keynote speaker at a special Wings of Hope fundraiser on April 25 at The Wildlife Experience in Parker, organized by his sister, Maureen Schul, the former mayor of Castle Pines. One of only 93 men to fly the mysterious black plane know as “the sled,” Schul shared his inspiring story of being shot down in Vietnam. Badly burned, Schul was hospitalized for nearly two years, only to come back to pilot the world’s fastest and highest-flying aircraft ever built. Schul also shared what he describes as

Arapahoe County now has a formal process for permitting oil and gas exploration. In a unanimous vote April 30, the county commissioners approved not only an administrative procedure, but a companion memorandum of understanding, the two major documents that oil and gas companies, like ConocoPhillips, have been waiting on for almost two years. While the MOU is voluntary for oil and gas operators, Arapahoe County Senior Planner Sherman Feher says the two are essentially tied at the hip. Feher went on to explain the connection. “What this is, basically, is a quid pro quo situation,” he said. “Operators would agree to more stringent standards than the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission stipulates, then in exchange, the county would provide an accelerated administrative process with lower fees.” Thomas Dugan, an attorney for ConocoPhillips, applauded the decision, saying the open exchange of information with council and staff resulted in reasonable and workable documents. “I’ve been through this public process a hundred times, and in my experience, this had been a very organized process and your staff should be commended,” said Dugan. South Metro Denver Chamber of Commerce President John Brackney called the decision critical to the state’s future. “There’s a bigger picture here, and it’s jobs, jobs, jobs,” said Brackney. “We at the South Denver Metro Chamber have always believed that energy policy should be one of our highest priorities. But not everyone was happy about the County continues on Page 10

Pot issues heating up Legalization could come back to ballot By Vic Vela

vvela@ourcoloradonews.com A late legislative session effort that could put Amendment 64 back on the ballot led to a fingerpointing exercise in political theater late last week — a wild turn of events in marijuana reguReport lation activity that capped an eventful period of pot-related action at the Capitol. News of an Amendment 64 repeal effort generated buzz, just two days after the first piece of legislation that seeks to set up a

Retired Air Force pilot Brian Schul stands in front of “the sled.” Schul has partnered with Wings of Hope, a charity organization that helps fund research for pancreatic cancer research. Photo by Gallery One one of the rarest collections of SR-71 photographs in the world. “I always had my little camera with me,” he said. “Now most people would think you couldn’t take a camera along on a topsecret mission, but I dug into the Air Force regulations and it never said I could — but it also never said I couldn’t.” Schul’s collection, mostly film, is the foundation for his book, “Sled Driver,” which is one the most authoritative publi-

cations on the plane. The book was on sale at the event, with proceeds from it, as well as some of his photos, going to Wings of Hope. “Our goal is to help raise awareness and research dollars for pancreatic cancer,” Maureen Schul told the crowd of more than 300. “My family was stunned as to how little there was in the way of early diagnostic Hope continues on Page 10

Teen stage production isn’t child’s play They file onto the stage, in red-andwhite collared shirts, 10 young women and men intent on provoking indignation among the hundreds of sophomores in the audience. Their words overlap into layers, resounding, pulsing, reverberating: It is happening. It is around us. There is abuse. There is assault. We are victims. We can fight it … Feel the outrage in this room. Then: “If you are holding a card with the number five on it, please stand.” Across the auditorium, boys and girls slowly, unsurely, rise. One in five high school students reports being physically or sexually abused, or both, by a dating partner, students are told. “If you are standing,” a voice says from the stage, “you are giving our statistic a visual image. Standing does not necessarily depict your future.” But, if you don’t pay attention, it could. On a recent morning, the Encore Players, an acting troupe comprised of juniors and seniors from Chaparral High School in Parker, presented a 20-minute performance called “The Outrage” to sophomore students at another school. Its purpose is to educate about teen dating violence, a problem on the rise — to define in no uncertain terms the meaning of rape and sexual assault. “It’s such a powerful message to share with kids,” said Ann Carter, director of the Women’s Crisis and Family Outreach Center in Douglas County. It becomes even more powerful when teens themselves tell the story. Initially, there was a bit of awkwardness among the actors. “I was a little uncomfortable with it at first,” junior Alex Soto said. “It covers topics people don’t usually bring up. You don’t talk about things like this in everyday

conversation.” But then came the education piece: “I was pretty shocked,” senior Sam Larson said. “I had no idea the extent to which this is a problem.” And, finally, the realization they could make a difference: “A theater isn’t necessarily for entertainment purposes,” junior Anne Heart said. “It’s for getting a message across.” Their teacher, David Peterson, agreed. Besides dealing with an issue that could affect them, he said, the production “is a wonderful experience for students to learn about the social change that can come from an art form like theater. … Hearing that your performance has helped someone is a powerful experience.” “The Outrage” also demonstrates the power of community working together to create change, in this case an organization that works to prevent domestic violence and a school district. Carter, from the women’s center, had seen a YouTube clip of “The Outrage” and immediately thought it would be an effective educational tool. “Teen violence tends to get hidden — they think that’s just part of growing up, that it’s not a big deal,” Carter said. But it’s learned behavior, and that can carry into adulthood. So, the center bought the rights to the script about two years ago and approached Peterson about having his students perform it at a gala fundraiser. The performance touched several audience members so much they provided seed money to

produce it in high schools. The Douglas County School District agreed to pilot it this school year in three high schools. Next school year, the Encore Players will perform for sophomores in all of the district’s high schools, always accompanied by someone from the women’s center to answer questions and provide resources. “Relationship safety … is a topic we all value, and all our kids could benefit from hearing about it,” said Staci McCormack, the district’s student wellness coordinator. “Kids might not be in it (violence), but they are affected, they are impacted, because it is around them.” And because of technology, “our generation has a lot more diverse forms of dating violence,” junior Kirsten Brandes said. Texting. The Internet. Social media. They all can make it easier for abuse to happen. Lynn Adams from the women’s center told students at the performance the story of a 10th-grade girl who received 17 threatening texts, including one of a gun, from her ex-boyfriend because they broke up. “When things like that happen, it’s pretty serious,” she said. “It could potentially ruin your life.” The incidence of dating violence among teens is growing, according to the Centers for Disease Control. It reports 25 percent of teens say they are victims of dating violence, whether it be emotional, psychological, physical or sexual, and 54 percent have witnessed such violence among their peers. Carter wants teens to know unequivocally those relationships are not OK. “You need to have a respectful relationship where both parties have a voice, where both parties are empowered to make decisions to have the relationship go in the way they both want it to go.” In its 20 minutes, “The Outrage” covers a lot of ground. Woven among short scenes that depict a boyfriend’s physical abuse and how to get help are these eye-opening statements:

• One in four teenage girls in a relationship say they have gone further sexually than they wanted to because of pressure • Eighty percent of teens consider verbal abuse “a serious issue” for their age group • Fifty-four percent of parents say they have not talked to their child about dating violence • One in three teenagers say they know a friend or peer who has been hit, punched, kicked, slapped, strangled or physically hurt by his or her partner • Eight of 10 female survivors of rape know their rapist as a boyfriend, friend or casual acquaintance And then there’s this one: One woman is abused every nine seconds. One. Two. Three. Four. Five. Six. Seven. Eight. Nine. To the Encore members, the statistics on the page have become real. Brandes said: “They are people.” They line the stage, in their red-andwhite shirts, young faces with hopeful hearts and a message intended to shock into action. The words overlap. They resound. Pulse. Reverberate. They envelop the listening students. Education … Strength … Courage … This is the change. It is happening. It is around us. There is abuse. There is assault. We will stop it. We will fight it. Change the rage in this room. Ann Macari Healey’s column about people, places and issues of everyday life appears every other week.

Eatery photo contest gets ‘interesting’ Participants get chance to snap up Mexican vacation By Deborah Grigsby

dgrigsby@ourcoloradonews. com They don’t always have a photo contest, but when they do, it’s interesting. Mellow Mushroom, the funky Atlanta-based pizza chain, has partnered with Mexican beermaker Dos Equis to create “the most interesting photo” contest, sporting a chance to celebrate Cinco de Mayo in Mexico. According to a Mellow Mushrom press release, only one photo will win the Ultimate Mellow Mexican Vacation, while other photos are rewarded along the way, with additional prizes that include merchandise and gift cards. The grand prize winner will select from a choice of Mexico destinations: Cancun, Rivera Maya, Playa del Carmen, Isla Mujeres or a Mexican cruise. The idea is to be “interesting,” said Dave Hayes, general manager of the Mellow Mushroom at The Streets at SouthGlenn. “Essentially, all you have to do is come in and take a photograph

of yourself with the Dos Equis man,” he said. The social-media-driven contest ask customers to pose with a cardboard effigy of 74-year-old Jonathan Goldsmith, who portrays the beer maker’s “world’s most interesting man,” tag it with #CincoDeMellow and then upload it to Instagram. Hayes said the contest runs through May 5, nationwide. “I’ve been back here three times in three different outfits,” said diner Ken Ames. “I’m winning this trip if it’s the last thing I do. I had to work during spring break, so got this coming, you know?” Leticia Jones said she doesn’t care if she wins or not. “I just wanted a picture of me and Mr. Interesting for Facebook,” she joked. “Actually, I’d really like to have the cardboard cutout when they’re through. It would look great in my office.” For more information and contest rules, visit www.CincoDeMellow.com. Mellow Mushroom was founded in 1974 in Atlanta, and is operated under Home-Grown Industries of Georgia Inc. Each locations is locally owned and operated. No purchase is necessary and contestants must be 21 years or older to enter.

Staff and diners at the Mellow Mushroom at The Streets at SouthGlenn strike a pose with the “world’s most interesting man.” The Atlanta-based pizza chain has teamed up with Mexican beer maker Dos Equis for a social media-driven photo contest to win a trip for two to Mexico.

’ State budget for 2014

rejuvenates programs Funding restored in wake of recession By Vic Vela

vvela@ourcoloradonews.com Next year’s state budget was signed by Gov. John Hickenlooper on April 29, a $20.5 billion plan that restores funding to many programs that had been cut during the recent recession. Hickenlooper signed the so-called “long bill” at a Capitol press event, where he expressed optimism in Colorado’s economic direction, while also acknowledging the cloudier fiscal period that the state is emerging from. “We are enacting a budget in a unique time in our history where we are coming back from this incredible recession,” Hickenlooper said, with members of the Legislature’s Joint Budget Committee standing behind him. “Colorado’s economy is outperforming the nation’s economy and I think we are now ... able to catch up in a number of places.” Funding is not only being restored to areas of last year’s budget that were cut, it also puts more money into savings. Next year’s budget adds $80 million to the state’s General Fund reserve, a 1 percent savings increase from last year. “Our intention is to continue to add to that reserve each year, so we can soften the actions those recessions create,” the governor said. Public schools will see a per-pupil funding increase of about $172 in next year’s budget — an increase that is tied to a tax hike associated with the School Finance Act, which voters still must approve once Hickenlooper signs the measure into law. There also will be more than $5 million

added in financial aid for college students, and more than $100 million for higher education maintenance projects. And, state workers will receive a 2 percent pay increase, their first pay raises in years. Sen. Pat Steadman, D-Denver, said the Department of Human Services “is a real winner in this year’s budget.” The Joint Budget Committee chairman touted the $13.3 million funding increase that will go toward the state’s child welfare system, and toward services geared toward people with developmental disabilities. Steadman also referenced the nearly $20 million that will go toward establishing a statewide mental health crisis system, which will include crisis phone hotlines available 24 hours a day. Rep. Claire Levy, D-Boulder, also a Joint Budget Committee member, said the budget provides more funding for affordable housing, legal aid programs for people who cannot afford lawyers, and restores $2 million in grant funding for libraries in rural areas. “That won’t ever get headlines, but to the people who need those services, it’s very important,” Levy said. Of the two Republican members of the Joint Budget Committee, only Rep. Cheri Gerou of Evergreen attended the budget signing. Sen. Kent Lambert, R-Colorado Springs, was the only committee member to vote against this year’s budget. Though the budget did receive some Republican support in the House, it did not garner a single Republican vote in the Senate. Many Republicans argued that the new budget’s spending would exceed growth. Their votes also were an extension of their resentment toward Democrats’ efforts on gun-control legislation.

Tuition bill for undocumented students signed by governor Measure took years to come to fruition By Vic Vela

vvela@ourcoloradonews.com Cheers thundered inside a packed student area at Metropolitan State University of Denver on April 29, as hundreds showed up to witness a bill-signing that will allow undocumented students to pay in-state tuition rates at Colorado colleges and universities. And while Gov. John Hickenlooper’s signature on Senate Bill 33 was the most important part of the event, it was one line in particular that perhaps earned the most enthusiastic reaction from the predominantly young crowd. “Today, we’re here to tell you that in Colorado, the doors are open and the dream is alive,” said state Sen. Mike Johnston, DDenver.

The bill that has been dubbed ASSET — Advancing Students for a Stronger Economy Tomorrow — is finally a realization, 10 years after it was first introduced in the General Assembly, and after several failed attempts to get the legislation through. “It feels I did something, like I accomplished something,” said Val Vigil, a former state lawmaker who was the first legislator to push for this type of proposal. Vigil is now a councilman and mayor pro tem for the City of Thornton. “I always did it for the kids,” Vigil said afterward. “But now that it’s done, it makes me feel great. It makes me feel wonderful.” The act allows all students to pay in-state tuition rates so long as they are high school graduates who have attended a Colorado school for at least three years. The measure also requires that students actively seek legal residency status in the U.S. The bill received bipartisan support in both legislative chambers this session.

Kids have a blast at space company Lockheed hosts hands-on Young Minds at Work Day By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@ourcoloradonews.com Take Your Kid to Work Day is a truly astronomical experience at Lockheed Martin. “This event is awesome,” said Joe Rice, Lockheed’s director of government relations. “It’s supporting our future. It gets kids excited, then they’re motivated to learn. Then in 20 years, they’ll be building our satellites and space crafts.” Rice’s two kids, Harrison and Lexie, and their friends were just four of the 1,500 kids who visited Lockheed’s Waterton Canyon campus April 25, Young Minds at Work Day, almost all of them children of the 3,800 people who work there. A variety of science and technology activities entertained them, from blasting off two-liter soda bottles to launching marshmallows Angry Bird-style to virtually working on a motorcycle in a 3D cave.

Harrison Rice discovers a little something about propulsion by launching a two-liter soda bottle full of water into the air during Lockheed Martin’s Young Minds at Work Day. Photo by Jennifer Smith Perhaps the most popular event was getting to visit with reallive astronaut Rex Walheim, who’s been on three shuttle missions — the last as a mission specialist on the final flight of the shuttle program. He’s currently the astronaut representative to the Orion Program, which will carry humans to

Mars in 2021. The kids, ages 6 to 18, asked smart, curious questions — everything from how electricity works in space (solar power or fuel cells) to how astronauts use the restroom (very carefully) to how they get water to drink. The answer to that last one

Bill pitches incentives for efficient homes By Vic Vela

vvela@ourcoloradonews.com Colorado homebuyers would be eligible for new financial incentives toward the purchase of energy efficient homes under a Democrat-sponsored bill that passed the state Senate on April 30. The measure now heads to the governor’s desk for his signature. But Republicans opposed the “Colorado Energy Saving Mortgage Bill” the entire way this legislative session, arguing that the bill is another example of Democrats subsidizing tax dollars for a “feel good” program that doesn’t really do anything. House Bill 1105 gives Coloradans up to $8,000 in incentives to either buy or rehabilitate homes that are energy efficient. Homeowners would be eligible to pocket the incentives in multiple ways, including having the option of an interest rate buydown, or having the down-payment of their mortgage reduced. Rep. Max Tyler, D-Golden, a House sponsor of the bill, said the program not only saves homeowners’ money, it can also lead to positive environmental impacts on the state. “It’s an attempt to drive the marketplace, to some degree, to more energy efficiency,” Tyler said. The bill redefines the existing Colorado Energy Star mortgage incentive program — which is administered by the Colorado Energy Office — by creating an energy-saving mortgage cash fund that is made up of state

appropriations and matching funds from utility companies. The bill passed on party-line votes in both chambers of the General Assembly this session, most recently by a 20-15 vote in the Senate on April 30. Though there was no debate in the Senate, Republicans argued against the bill during a March 26 House debate, where they stressed the bill promotes energy efficiency on the backs of taxpayers, and that the legislation should have been targeted more toward lower-income families. Rep. Cheri Gerou, R-Evergreen, didn’t care how her colleagues voted on the bill because she considered the legislation useless. “This is a feel-good bill, but doesn’t do anything,” she said. The bill is one of several energy-related pieces of legislation that Tyler has been promoting this legislative session. The legislation includes bills that expand financing of new energy improvements for commercial properties, and separate legislation that expands state contracts that seek energy-cost savings to include those that increase state vehicle operation and fuel cost savings. Tyler said he’s been able to move on energy bills this session compared to years past when Democrats did not have the majority power they now enjoy. “After playing defense the last couple of years, we’re able to move things forward again,” he said.

might have made some kids change their minds about how cool it is to be an astronaut. Visiting spacecraft take water to the space station, but conservation is key when you’re 220 miles above the Earth for months at a time. “You guys are going to think this is really gross,” laughed Walheim. “You see where I’m going with this, right?” (Let’s just say today’s drink of water gets recycled into tomorrow’s drink of water.) Walheim said he enjoys the chance to get out of Houston to get to know the people who make his work possible, and this event afforded him the added opportunity to meet their kids, as well. He recalled meeting astronaut Charles Duke as a youngster, then again last year. “You always wonder if you really do ever get to inspire a kid,” he said. “I got to tell Charlie, you really did inspire a kid.” Kids like Grey Mashrouteh might be telling Walheim the same thing someday. The 10-year-old wants to be a pilot like his grandpa and great-grandpa before him. “I found out pretty much everything I wanted to find out, so it’s been a pretty fun day,” he said.

Lockheed employees are a passionate bunch and were excited to see the children soaking up the knowledge while thoroughly enjoying themselves. Allan Cheuvront helped his 8-year-old grandson, Braeden Dobbins, launch a soda bottle, explaining the physics behind the blast. “I think it’s safe to say we’re an aging workforce,” he said. “Kids today have more ability and capability than I ever did.” Cheuvront has worked at Lockheed for 33 years and is currently helping design the Osiris Rex, which will launch in 2016 and bring back samples from a nearearth asteroid in 2023. “Asteroids are the direct remnants of the original building blocks of the terrestrial planets,” reads a fact sheet about the project. “Knowledge of their nature is fundamental to understanding planet formation and the origin of life.” Cheuvront says his older grandson, 11-year-old Ben, already knows he wants to carry on grandpa’s good work. “In theory, these kids could bring Osiris Rex back,” he said.

Lone Tree investing in commercial area Council OKs consulting deal for Entertainment District By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com Lone Tree is investing an additional $100,000 into its Entertainment District by hiring a consultant to define the area’s future. It’s a future that city leaders hope will include throngs of shoppers congregating at a revamped commercial center. During its April 16 meeting, city council approved a contract with Boulderbased 505 Design, chosen from among 16 consulting teams that responded to a February request for proposal. The firm will work with business owners, tenants and area residents to create a vision and identify improvements for the area, anchored by the United Artists movie theater, that extends along Park Meadows Drive south of Yosemite Street. “By the end of summer, we hope to have a vision and some projects identified,” said Steve Hebert, Lone Tree’s community development director. “If council, property owners and business owners indicate they want to move forward, the next phase would be figuring out who pays for what and how to go about it.” If physical changes are recommended and financing secured, Hebert said construction could begin late this year. “Realistically in 2014, but maybe late 2013,” he said. “Obviously if it’s a large capital improvement, it’s going to require some additional engineering and review, and might require planning commission and council re-

The Lone Tree entertainment district in the area of Yosemite Street and Park Meadows Drive offers businesses including a movie theater, Mexican, Indian, Japanese and American restaurants, indoor sky diving, bowling, laser tag and a cigar lounge. The city hopes to make the area more inviting. File photo view. There’s a whole menu of things that could come out of this.” Lone Tree paid the Urban Land Institute $25,000 to do an initial study late last year. The international nonprofit uses teams of experts to advise communities on land use. Its December report envisioned a promenade-style walkway with fountains, play areas and greenery. 505 Design’s managing principal John Ward isn’t yet ready to paint such a detailed picture. That, he said, will be revealed by stakeholders who include not only business owners, managers and people who live in the area, but moviegoers, diners and other customers. “We will start with smaller, individual groups,” Ward said. “You find common ground, things that all of a sudden build upon your story. We’re trying to figure out what the narrative idea is for the area, and how it relates to the other pieces of Lone Tree. “I definitely think it’s an opportunity to really create a neighborhood. To me, it’s sort of a no-man’s-land now.” 505 Design will work with the city to identify focus groups, set and facili-

tate meetings, and develop a design strategy document, financing and implementation plan, among other steps. The city hopes the first part of the two-phase project will be done by fall, so it can plan its 2014 budget with Phase II in mind. A public open house and council presentation of the plan tentatively is set for August. The Entertainment District offers an array of activities, including a movie theater, indoor skydiving, bowling, laser tag, several restaurants and a cigar lounge. But critics say it’s tough to find, hard to access and tricky to navigate. Its design discourages walking, and the businesses are arranged so that some are difficult for passers-by to see. Retailers in the area generally agree changes are in order. “But individuals thinking about those things is not going to get us where we want to go,” Hebert said. “In order for it to be the most successful, we need as many property owners and business owners to agree upon: one, identification of the problem, and two, identification of the solution. We need to bring people together to have that conversation.”

Thirty years later, he owns the largest residential mowing service in the Denver metro area, servicing thousands of lawns a week. Photo by Ryan Boldrey mowing service in the Denver metro area, servicing all of Douglas County, most of Jefferson and Arapahoe counties and recently adding some of the newer suburbs to the northeast. Based out of a garage and office on Titan Park Circle in unincorporated Douglas County, Erbert has a staff of 40 working for him that attends to thousands of lawns per week, some of which he was cutting as a 12-yearold boy. There was a time, though, after receiving a computer degree from Metro State in 1994, that Erbert almost put his mower away. Yet he found working in an office so incredibly boring, he instead decided to get even more serious about what he

already knew he could be successful at. “I like the grass and I like being outside,” he said, “but almost even more, it’s the people. I love our customers and I love our team, I love cultivating the family atmosphere that we have here. “We are kind of weird and wacky and like to have fun. We are obviously professional at people’s homes, but I want my staff to come to work and act just like they would at home. If they act differently at work, they are not being really who they want to be.” For more information on services and costs or to learn about the company, visit www.ErbertLawns.com or call 303-948-6631.

A trio of companies submitted proposals for developing property at the corner of Broadway and Englewood Parkway and the block-long parking lot facing the 3400 block of South Acoma Street. The Englewood Urban Renewal Authority owns the parking lot and about half the lot fronting on Broadway and Englewood Parkway. The city owns the other half of the frontage lot. The two owners agreed earlier this year to put out a request for proposal for development of the site. “We received 45 requests for information about the site, but we only received three proposals by the deadline. While specific details of each proposal are different, all three proposals would develop a project of mixed use retail and residential development,” said Alan White, community development director. “The site is currently zoned commercial, which would allow mixed retail and residential development.” One proposal would construct a trio of three-story buildings with retail on the Broadway-Englewood Park-

way frontage and about 75 apartments. The second proposal would construct three-story buildings to house retail on the Broadway frontage plus about 48 townhomes. There were three mixed use options as part of the proposal. The final proposal would be two-phase construction. Phase one would be a twostory building with 10,000 square feet of retail space on the Broadway frontage and a roof deck restaurant. Phase 2 would be a four-story building with 100 rental units and retail space facing Acoma Street. Proposed purchase prices range from $600,000 to about $1.4 million. There is also suggestion of about $800,000 for a 75-year ground lease. Mayor Pro Tem Jim Woodward, who is council liason to the EURA, told the city council at the April 22 study session that the authority would like to get a committee together to review and evaluate the proposals. He said the authority is asking for two council members to be part of the committee that would attend the first meeting April 24 and future meetings until a proposal is accepted. The council agreed Woodward and Councilmember Joe Jefferson would serve on the committee. Councilmember Rick Gillit will substitute for Jefferson at the first meeting, scheduled for April 24.

opinions / yours and ours

Turning the gun debate to mental illness The 2012 mass shootings at the Aurora movie theater and at Sandy Hook Elementary School sparked discussion of the role mental illness may have played in the tragedies. What can be done to improve treatment for the mentally ill? How can we make sure those whose illness manifests itself in violent tendencies don’t have access to guns? That debate was quickly overshadowed by gun-control measures in Congress and in state legislatures that frequently became arguments over the Second Amendment. In Colorado, the 2013 legislative session, now less than a week from its scheduled end, will be remembered most for Democrats pushing through several gun-control bills to the outrage of Republicans. But the mental illness aspect hasn’t gone away. We were reminded of this by

our view last week’s scare in Littleton in which a police-issued safety alert cautioned that a man with access to a semiautomatic rifle had, weeks earlier, made threats to shoot people at the local hospital and at a big-box store. The 24-year-old Highlands Ranch man had spent more than two weeks in the same hospital he threatened after being admitted on a mandatory hold for having homicidal or suicidal thoughts. We know these details only because the safety alert inadvertently, police say, made its way into the hands of the public, largely because of various media reports. The alert, issued April 25, had been intended

question of the week

After recent news events, how safe do you feel? Colorado Community Media surveyed four people at random to determine whether

recent national tragedies have impacted their thoughts on personal safety.

“I feel perfectly safe, but I’m kind of a red-blooded American. Unfortunately, with the Boston bombings, when it’s people in U.S., it’s difficult to pre-emptively stop those. We can’t get everything.” — Lee Nordhold, Denver

“I feel safe. Yesterday, I heard the five surviving presidents speak and that made me feel safe. It seemed like they are all on the same page, which made me feel good.” — Marguerite Langstaff, Littleton

“I just came back from Boston, and seeing the state of readiness and so many different authorities that got together to make sure security was buttoned up made me feel safe.” — Kevin Humes, Aurora

“We’ve gone through Columbine and the Aurora theater shooting, but I don’t feel like I’m in danger when I go out or anything. There are always going to be crazy wackos out there.” — Tommy Weber, Littleton

Heart and soul of a dachshund Are you in a bad mood? Take one dachshund and call me in the morning. It’s impossible to look at a real dachshund or a photograph of one and not feel better. Go ahead. Google “dachshund” and you will see what I mean. They weren’t designed, yes designed, to lift your spirits. They were designed to track badgers. I suppose a standard-sized dachshund would stand a chance, but a small standard, like Smitty, or a miniature, would be torn to shreds. I think Smitty would have a 50-50 chance of whipping a box of Wheat Thins. If you’re planning to buy or adopt a dachshund, do your research first. Some of them can be nippy, and some of them will only focus on one member of the family. Smitty is here in the room with me, so I have to be careful about what I say. I will sneak in a subliminal message. Dachshunds are German-engineered, the word “dachshund” means “badger hound,” (they are very, very funny looking), and they like to burrow under blankets. Don’t go calling them wiener dogs around me. Hardy har har. How would you like to be called “crab man” or “crab woman” just because you resembled one? Or “chameleon boy” just because you changed colors now and then? You wouldn’t. If you look into the eyes of a dachshund, you are looking into the heart and soul of life. I know I tumbled overboard the first time I saw Smitty’s cognac-colored eyes. He begged to be adored and I lost control, the way a fool would do. I have a good friend who has a dog that doesn’t look like a dog. She sends pictures and I have nightmares. It weighs 124 pounds. That’s 8 pounds more than Jennifer, my girlfriend, weighs. And it’s 108 pounds more than Smitty weighs. Think about it. The amount of food. The amount of poop. I want a lap dog, not Smokey the Bear.

Another good friend just went through a nasty divorce, and custody of the dog was big. I actually think there was more contention over Scrapple than there was over the children. Dogs will do that to you. It’s been said over and over that dogs don’t know or care if you have had a bad day. They are here to make your day better no matter what. I am on my third dachshund. My childhood dachshund, Hexe, was an antidote for just about everything from the anxieties of growing up, to the Wrath of Shirley. My mother made some days very difficult. If you know what an anal retentive is, mom was varsity, first team, All American, Hall of Fame. She lettered all four years that I was in high school. Hexe snuggled. Shirley scolded. Hexe snuggled. No matter what anyone says, no one is going to give you unconditional love. Something, some thing, will invariably rub your unconditional lover the wrong way. Just because you drink salad dressing out of the bottle doesn’t make you a bad person. Just because you sing “Moon River” in a falsetto with a spoon on your nose doesn’t make you a bad person. Smitty wouldn’t care one way or another. He is here to dispense love. That’s his assignment. Some of us get carried away and put Smith continues on Page 9

just for the people deemed most affected, such as the hospital, the man’s relatives and his former employer. It was distributed as “a precautionary measure and a courtesy,” Littleton police said, and the man had not been charged with a crime. A day after the bulletin was issued, the man checked himself into a hospital seeking treatment and was not considered a threat, authorities said. Media organizations and the public were given a peek behind the curtain at something that surely happens more often than we would like to think. Because of privacy laws, neither the media nor the public are privy to much of what happens before someone who is mentally ill commits a crime. Let’s be clear: The vast majority of mentally ill people do not commit crimes,

and may actually be more prone to being victimized, experts say. But some individuals with certain types of mental illness are driven to hurt people. And they should not have legal access to guns. We have no way of knowing whether the subject of last week’s safety alert actually planned to hurt anyone or whether he is even mentally ill. But the mere notion of someone with bad intentions and access to a firearm fuels thoughts of another tragedy. What can be done? How can public safety best be protected without trampling on an individual’s rights? There are lawmakers in Congress and in the Colorado General Assembly having this discussion. We hope they will put the same passion into these talks that we saw in earlier gun-control debates, sans the partisan politics.

‘Ah-ha’ is mark of creativity Seems like even at this stage of my life I still find myself having those “ah-ha moments.” You know that moment when the light bulb has gone off in your head and you suddenly get it, or a solution to a problem pops into your head. It’s a great feeling isn’t it? I mean especially when we find ourselves in a situation where others have already come up with the answer before us, or they just get things faster. I am also grateful that those “ah-ha moments” keep coming. It means that I have not gotten to that point where I believe I already have all of the answers. I don’t believe anyone ever really gets there, however I do know many people who think that they already know everything. Do you know anyone like that? If you do know anyone who fits into the know-it-all category, you can share

with them one of my favorite quotes, one that I use to remind myself to constantly be learning and growing. Eric Hoffer says it this way, “In a time of drastic change it is the learners who inherit the future. The learned usually find themselves equipped to live in a world that no longer exists.” We must always be willing to learn. “Ah-ha moments” can come at any time. Norton continues on Page 9

letter to the editor resident dubious about city’s high marks

What is it with politicians? I refer to your front page item reading “Report card gives Centennial high marks.” I suppose high marks are in order if it is politicians grading themselves. The fundamental premise (or promise) of the city’s incorporation was to take “baby steps.” First to “establish boundaries around the all-important tax base” and then “very gradually to build only a modest skeleton of public administration for a new city.” That was one of many of Randy Pye’s promises. Currently we have a mayor, city clerk, departments for communications, economic development, human resources, community development, finance, animal control, as well as an office for the city manager. And the list goes on.

A “Taj Mahal” had to be purchased for $4.5 million to house the burgeoning bureaucracy. Top that with a city park costing over $8 million for land acquisition and development. Now city taxes that were to be 1 percent have risen to 2.5 percent. Patrol cars lurk down side streets waiting to pounce on unwary motorists making a (gasp!) rolling stop at 5 a.m. Hordes of patrol cars prey on University Boulevard drivers who might exceed the school zone speed limit at midmorning (what are lights for when the kids are in class?) But, we have to finance this behemoth and what better way than to have a hidden tax called “traffic tickets”? All great marks? We were the marks. George Sullivan Centennial

Train wreck looms with election-law rewrite

Following a secret, months-long process and without any input from my office, ng voters, or Republican legislators, Demoidu- crats rammed through legislation that are fundamentally changes how we run our not elections. Unfortunately, this election-law rewrite will lead to disaster. r the To begin, the bill forces Colorado into ly election policy that performs worse than is our current system. The new bill mandates of mail ballots for every voter and Election ss to Day registration. Currently, Colorado ranks gedy. third best in voter turnout nationwide — one of the few states that increased turnout ling in this last election. Colorado outperforms every all-mail-ballot state in the country. nd And we outperform six of the eight Elecing tion Day registration states. But even if you like the policy, this bill he is a rush to failure. Some may remember aw Denver voters waiting in line for hours e in 2006. Denver’s own analysis blamed much of the failure on vote centers and the rushed development of an Internet-only poll book. That analysis criticized the short time frame — eight months — to deploy the system. By contrast, this bill’s unrealistic

My “ah-ha moments” have happened while driving, at church, eating a meal, or other random places. The point is that

100-day timeline will result in a sloppy, untested system that puts our voters at risk. Other states attempting this project have allowed themselves anywhere from 13 months to two years. Additionally, the bill bans neighborhood polling places in exchange for scattered, big-box voting clearinghouses. By rushing development and mandating these clearinghouses, the legislature is repeating every mistake that led to voters waiting in line for hours in Denver in 2006. Even if implementation goes smoothly, Election Day registration still opens the door to fraud. Because Colorado has weak identification requirements — an easily forged utility bill is enough to vote —

when they happen, we have to recognize them as an “ah-ha moment” and not write it off as just another miscellaneous or obscure thought. The other thing I have really come to appreciate is when I observe someone else enjoying their “ah-ha moment.” When we see the light bulb go off for one of our children, a friend or a customer it is so rewarding. And instead of just watching them “get it,” the best thing we can do is talk them through it, ask questions, get them to expand upon it. Because it is in those moments of expanded thinking where the true learning takes place and they have a chance to internalize and own the idea for themselves. And we should be open to

cheaters will be able to vote twice using different names. These worries aren’t theoretical. This last election, El Paso County caught a person who registered five times using false information. County officials caught him, but only because they had 29 days before the election to investigate the registration fraud. Under an Election Day registration scheme, this person would have been able to vote several times. Also in 2012, Colorado saw instances of people from other states trying to illegally vote in our battleground state. And in 2004 the city of Milwaukee saw over 4,000 more votes than registered voters. The resulting 68-page Milwaukee police report targeted Wisconsin’s Election Day voter registration as the problem. And finally, mandatory mail ballots remove choice and open the door to voter intimidation. Despite best efforts by all political parties and county registrars, about 1 million Coloradans reject voting by mail, and instead vote in person. In fact, Colorado saw a spike in provisional ballots this last election, because people changed their minds and wanted to vote in person,

all “ah-ha moments” large and small and maybe even grandiose. Sometimes just that little spark of an idea can blossom into something much bigger that is in alignment with our personal and professional goals. And even our large or grandiose “ah-ha moments” can help us fulfill the biggest and wildest dreams of our hearts. I would love to hear all about your recent “ah-ha moments” at gotonorton@gmail.com and when the light bulb goes off this week for you, I am sure it will be a better than good week.

rather than by mail. But now everyone will receive a mail ballot — even if they don’t want one because they fear intimidation. Even now, the Town of Center faces vote fraud charges because, as one witness said: “Once everyone gets a mail ballot in their mailbox, in some communities like mine, the bad guys will be there to intimidate them. They don’t get to say, `I don’t get a mail ballot. I go to the polls.’” We should take time to get it right, because we can fix many problems. But the Democratic majority refuses to compromise. We should take the time to get it right. Photo identification and proof of citizenship for late registrations dramatically reduce the chances for fraud, but Democrats refuse to even consider that. And Colorado should allow people the option to refuse a mail ballot and vote in person. From the start, Democrats have frozen out anyone who might disagree with them, refusing common-sense compromises. Colorado voters deserve better. Scott Gessler, a Republican, was elected Colorado secretary of state in 2010.

Cabela’s hiring 200 in Lone Tree Outdoor retailer on track for mid-August opening By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com Cabela’s has started the interview process to fill 200 positions at its Lone Tree store, which is scheduled to open Aug. 15. The sporting goods store is hiring full-time, part-time and seasonal employees to staff the 110,000-squarefoot building. “We are looking for employees who will deliver legendary customer service to the thousands of loyal Cabela’s customers across the Colorado Front Range,” said Cabela’s spokesman Chuck Bera. The development site at RidgeGate Parkway and Interstate 25 also includes room for two or three other retail pads, a restaurant and hotel. Those tenants haven’t been selected yet. “Part of the problem is, we have almost every retailer you can think of,” Lone Tree’s Deputy City Manager Seth Hoffman said. “It’s a great problem to have. “I know the property owners are in active discussions with different retailers. It’ll just be a matter of them finding the right match. We expected

Properties draw line at pot Apartments, condos see problems tied to legalization By Deborah Grigsby

dgrigsby@ourcoloradonews.com As Colorado details how pot smokers can legally light up, homeowner associations and apartment complexes are starting to feel the effects. While Amendment 64 permits recreational use of marijuana by adults, as well as the indoor cultivation of up to six plants, some property management companies are already threatening fines for those who use or grow in their units. Many newer properties have already banned smoking entirely. Alta Aspen Grove, Littleton’s newest complex, is 100 percent smokefree. Tenants sign an addendum to their lease that allows the company to fine them $50 for the first offense, $100 for the second and evict them on the third. The building is LEED Silver certified. “It attracts kind of a different demographic,” said Carissa DeKeyser, assis-

regulatory model for the new recreational pot industry passed a legislative committee. The effort — if it ever gets off the ground — would ask voters to repeal Amendment 64, if they fail to support the tax rates tied to retail marijuana purchases. However, it remains to be seen whether the repeal effort has any legs, or if it’s dead on arrival in either legislative chamber. Repeal effort rumblings led to a tense April 26 press conference outside the Capitol, where Amendment 64 proponents clashed with an advocacy group that seeks to restrict access to marijuana in the state. Later that day, House lawmakers approved preliminary passage of House Bill 1317, an omnibus bill that puts in place Amendment 64’s regulatory framework. And, earlier in the week, a House committee voted to tack on a cone andtroversial driving-stoned standard to dlifeHouse Bill 1317 — one day after a Senn li-ate committee killed legislation that doorsought to do the same thing. An early draft of the repeal effort udesasks voters to repeal last November’s ck toinitiative that legalized recreational marijuana use in the state, if they reject the tax model tied to Amendment 64 implementation. That tax framework is in the form of House Bill 1318, which in its original form asks voters to approve a model where retail pot would be subject to an excise tax and a separate retail tax of up to 15 percent each. That’s in addition to a 2.9 percent state sales tax and whatever other taxes municipalities may tack on. Also, the bill was amended to allow municipalities to receive a 15 percent “share back” of the retail sales taxes collected by the state, up from the 10 percent originally included in the bill. Amendment 64 proponents are furious at the repeal effort — which had

tant community manager. “When they find out we’re 100 percent smoke-free, they’ll either walk right out the door or they’ll be even more interested.” Jill Kearney rents a condo in a Denver high-rise and said just the thought of her neighbors lighting up has her looking for alternatives. “I really don’t care what other people want to do, but the thought of having someone living next door growing and smoking marijuana really encourages me to start looking for a house to rent,” said Kearney. “I’m probably not going to have as nice of a place, but if this is the way it’s going to go down, I don’t feel I have a choice.” But problems with marijuana use in properties where tenants share a common wall are more than just smoke, according to Molly Foley-Healy, special counsel for Winzenburg, Leff, Purvis and Payne who specializes in property law. “Problems include the distinctive smell of not just pot when it’s smoked, but also when it’s growing,” said Foley-Healy, adding that other concerns include mold, excessive use of water for hydroponics, light pollution from grow lights as well as electrical haz-

ards from overloaded wall outlets. And just like many municipalities, property managers are torn between two governing jurisdictions. “The real sticky wicket comes when you look at most contracts signed by the tenant,” explained Foley-Healey. “Most communities, when you buy or rent, will have you sign a document agreeing to the association’s governing documents and most require tenants and residents to abide by all laws — meaning federal, state and local laws.” While pot may be legal under state law, the fact is, it’s still illegal under federal law. According to Foley-Healing, the other looming question for property managers is the issue of enforcement. She said it’s a fine line, and she encourages her clients to defer matters to local authorities. “Just like when tenants have problems with loud music or unleashed dogs, there are usually municipal codes that already exist to deal with these kinds of things,” she said. “If it becomes a problem, I would highly encourage any of our clients and residents to report the matter to local authorities and let them handle it.”

not been introduced in legislation as of April 26. Representatives of anti-marijuana group Smart Colorado denied they they’re the driving force behind the repeal push, but acknowledged that they have been a part of the process. Spokeswoman Diane Carlson said that if money isn’t provided to fund regulatory costs, “then (Amendment) 64 should not be implemented.”

popular aspects of Amendment 64, such as decriminalization for smalltime pot-related offenses. “The voters went out there, they got the signatures, they got this on the ballot,” Singer told Colorado Community Media. “So, for the state legislature to turn around a year later and say, `Let’s do a mulligan,’ ... apart from looking bad, it takes so little credence for what the voters actually did in 2012.” Singer’s bill passed the Finance Committee and was expected to be voted on by the entire House this week.

Tax rates spark debate

As of last week, it was unknown which specific lawmakers would join in crafting a repeal measure, which probably would come in the form of a joint Senate and House resolution. Rep. Frank McNulty, R-Highlands Ranch, said he “wouldn’t have a problem” with asking for an Amendment 64 repeal if the voters don’t approve the taxes tied to its regulation. “There is a strong concern that if the tax doesn’t pass, then families and small businesses are going to be saddled with the cost of implementing legalized pot,” McNulty told Colorado Community Media. “I don’t think that’s right.” Some Republicans have argued that the proposed 15 percent excise and retail sales taxes might be too high for voters’ liking. And, even if voters approve the taxes, the rates could have unintended consequences. “I would rather us do something prudent out of the gate to not create that stronger black market,” said Rep. Kevin Priola, R-Henderson, during an April 25 House Finance Committee hearing on House Bill 1318. But those who support the 15 percent rate argue that there’s just no telling how much it’s going to cost to regulate the new industry, and that it’s better to ask for a higher tax rate now, and then possibly adjust to a lower rate down the road. Still, Rep. Jonathan Singer, DLongmont, the sponsor of House Bill 1318, said he is “willing to talk about different (tax) models that might work better.” Singer said that’s a lot better than seeking a repeal, which not only would do away with the retail marijuana industry, but also would strip other

Driving limit returns

The two bills that seek to put in place regulations for recreational marijuana — House Bill 1317 and Senate Bill 283 — passed committees last week, following lengthy hearings. One of the more contentious areas of House Bill 1317 is a proposed head start that existing medical marijuana dispensaries would have in entering into the new retail pot market. Medical marijuana licensees would be allowed to apply for retail licenses on Oct. 1, while everyone else must wait until Jan. 1, 2014. Some Republicans argued that allowing existing dispensaries to get a jump on other businesses would give them an unfair advantage over pot shops just entering the market. But Rep. Dan Pabon, D-Denver, the bill’s sponsor, said there needs to be some easing into the market to help regulators deal with the new industry. “This is not for a monopoly, but to let the Department of Revenue get used to a new era,” Pabon said during an April 25 hearing. Also, a key amendment was added to Pabon’s bill at that same hearing, which would set a blood standard for being too stoned to drive. The effort had failed in a previous committee, after concerns were raised that the standard would unfairly affect medical marijuana patients, and that it would lead to police enforcement issues about blood sampling. The driving-stoned amendment still must survive the Senate, where the effort has died before.

Oprah doing part for Dish

Mom is the present Photos by Deborah GriGsby Early Greek and Roman spring festivals were often dedicated to the mothers of many deities. While celebrations differ across the globe, the meaning of Mother’s Day has, for the most part, remained the same. Four Centennial moms agree that motherhood is not only a calling, it is also a rite of passage handed down from generation to generation. But ask these matriarchs what’s the best way to honor them on their special day, and they’ll tell you it’s not always something from the store — it’s time spent with family and friends.

Inside scoop: Oprah Winfrey, yes, that Oprah, will make a special appearance at Douglas County-based satellite company Dish Network’s annual retailer convention in San Antonio in mid-May. She’s supposed to be taping a 30-minute show during the event. Also entertaining during that event is comedian Bill Engvall of the Blue Collar Comedy Tour, and the band Train. Team Summit — the name of the conference — will be held May 14-16. Oprah will make her appearance on May 14. Jill Arrington from Fox Sports will be cohosting the entire week with Amir Ahmed, senior vice president of indirect sales for Dish. Don’t have details, but I’m told by a super-secret double-probation source that Oprah’s rider (meaning what she needs before and after her appearance) is crazy! Tons of diva-like demands. If I hear more, I will “dish” the deets.

Sisters Cathy Lines, left, and Jeannie Lines-Dolan, right, look forward to celebrating Mother’s Day with their mom, Lois Lines. When it comes to celebrating motherhood, they feel the ultimate way to honor mom is by spending time together.

Chef and restaurateur Frank Bonanno was set to open his latest joint, Bonanno Brothers Pizzeria, on April 27 at The Vistas at Park Meadows. It’s his first venture outside of Denver, and the 10th addition to his rapidly growing empire, which includes Mizuna, Luca d’Italia, Bones, Osteria Marco, Green Russell, Lou’s Food Bar, Russell’s Smokehouse and Vesper Lounge. Say what you want about Bonanno, but his record with successful eateries speaks for itself. Bonanno Brothers Pizzeria will feature an open kitchen with an Italian wood-fire oven that will showcase pizza makers, cheese mongers and charcutiers. “The menu at Bonanno Brothers Pizzeria started as something simple — unifying standout items from Osteria Marco with some of our cherished appetizers from Luca d’Italia,” Bonanno said. “The entire menu represents the food I always look forward to sharing with my family.” Hours are 11 a.m. to close on Monday through Sunday with happy hour from 2 to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 8 to 10 p.m. Saturday. For more information, go to www.bonannobrotherspizzeria.com.

Oh, ick!

Lois Donahue of Centennial jokes that it’s pretty cool that Mother’s Day is finally “all about me.” Donahue, seated, poses for a quick portrait with her daughters, Kathy Reyer, center, and Kim Dority, and says that Mother’s Day is the perfect time to slow things down and spend time with family.

Centennial resident Vera Jeffords, seated, and her special “daughters” Cristina Jeffords, left, and Taylor Jeffords honor motherhood across multiple generations and cultures. The trio says motherhood is the international language understood across the globe.

First Avenue Hotel and El Diablo and Sketch restaurant owner Jesse Morreale has far from come to terms with the city of Denver over alleged “safety violations” regarding his places of business. On April 25, Morreale lost yet another legal battle that said, barring improvements to the property, the city will have him shut down at First and Broadway on May 3. His attorney, David Foster, however, is fighting the order. For my part, I just hope that El Diablo stays open, because I think that space has been a real plus to that part of town. And executive chef Sean Yontz is the bomb (however you say that in Spanish) to that establishment. Stay tuned to this unfolding drama.

You cannot control what REALTOR®

RE/MAX Leaders Direct: 303-842-2920 Office: 303-834-1144 ext 37 www.heatherlamb.remaxagent.com

What is the most challenging part of what you do? In Real Estate, there are no “business” hours and I need to be available 24-7 to best assist my clients. It never fails whenever we try to take a vacation, business calls and I end up working. The joke in my family is that when business slows down, just go on vacation!

Where were you born? I was born in Dallas, TX but consider myself a Colorado native since I moved here when I was two.

What do you most enjoy doing when you’re not working? When I am not working you will find me outside! I love to run, hike, fly-fish, camp and mountain bike. I also enjoy photography and capturing nature shots, so I am always looking for new places to explore.

How long have you lived in the area? I grew up in Colorado and made a brief hiatus to Washington State for 14 years. I moved back in 2004 and been here ever since. What do you like most about it? Colorado is home to me and most of my family lives in the area. I absolutely must be outdoors whenever possible and living here offers endless opportunities to do just that!

What is one tip you have for someone looking to sell a house?

How long have you worked in Real Estate? I discovered my passion back in 2003 when I became a licensed agent in Washington State. Ten years later and I am still in awe of how much I love being a Realtor and wouldn’t know how to do anything but Real Estate!

the market value of your house is at a particular time so embrace it and make your house the best one for the price and you will sell quickly! What is one tip you have for someone looking to buy a house? Keep your expectations realistic and options open. If you have an idea of the perfect house at a perfect price, you are setting yourself up for disappointment. Sometimes your “wants and needs” will change as you go through the home searching process. My favorite example of this was a young couple I worked with a few years back. On our first meeting, they were adamant in saying, “Heather, do NOT show us anything in Highlands Ranch!” From everything they told me they wanted and were looking for in a house, I knew of just the perfect house and you guessed it – it was in Highlands Ranch! I asked them to be open-minded and begged them to view this house. They reluctantly agreed and don’t you know it, they fell head over heels and are now proud homeowners in the one place they insisted they did not want to live! What is the most unusual thing you’ve en encountered while working in Real Estate? While previewing homes – alone, for a client that worked long hours, I headed down to the basement and opened the door to a stor storage closet. As I flung open the door, I found myself eye to eye with a life-sized statue of the Virgin Mary. My brain could not process fast enough that I was just looking at a harmless Christmas decoration! I turned and ran out of that house so fast I almost forgot to lock the door. Now when previewing alone, I tell cli clients, “I do not do basements!”

What is your specialty and what does that mean for the people you work with? Several years ago when the housing market turned, I was getting calls from past clients desperate for help and in the face of foreclosure. Recognizing the need and desire to assist, I became certified as a short sale/ foreclosure expert and obtained my SFR and CHRE designation. The mar-

We’re inspired by classic Colorado architecture and passionate about cra smanship. Yet we geek out on the latest technology and sustainable building techniques. The thicker walls in our New Town Builders’ high performance homes allow for 60% more money-saving insula on than in a conven onal home, and our roof is 6 inches higher than a typical home, so we can get 2 ½ mes MORE insula on in the a c. This reduces heat loss, and more importantly, reduces your energy bill! Talk to us about building your (surprisingly affordable) energy-efficient new home.

RENTAL VACANCIES Randy Spierings, CPA, MBA Branch Manager

NMLS #217152 MLO #100022405 Primary Residential Mortgage, Inc. Office: 303-256-5748 www.BestColoradoMortgages.com rspierings@primeres.com Regulated by Division of Real Estate Has been a CPA for over 30 years

Q

: My understanding is that rental vacancies are decreasing and rental rates are increasing. I also have heard that housing prices are increasing and that interest rates are still near 60 year lows. In this scenario is it better to rent or own. : You are correct that vacancies are very low and are continuing to impact rental rates. This trend is being driven by the number of people that have lost homes through short sales and foreclosures and the tighter lending environment of the last several years. You are also correct that housing prices in many areas in Colorado are showing month to month and year over year increases as inventory of homes available for sale have dropped

A

from about 25,000 to around 6,000. And interest rates, driven by Federal Reserve efforts, a sluggish job environment and economy, and a flight to safety caused by uncertainty in Europe, are near 60 year lows. As a result home affordability is at near record levels and about twice as high as 6 years ago. Given this environment the mathematics are definitely waited in favor of purchasing. From a mathematical standpoint if someone rented a home today at $1200 per month and if rent increases by 3% per year, over the next 30 years a person would have spent over $680,000 for housing and would own nothing. A person that purchases a home for $200,000 today with a 30 year fixed mortgage would have a payment of about $1200 per month, which may be tax deductible, and except for increases in taxes and insurance, would remain constant for 30 years. Thus payments over the 30 years would probably be less than $500,000, resulting in savings versus renting of over

ourcolorado

$180,000. And that house, if it appreciated at 3% per year, would be worth $485,000. Total difference – over $665,000 in favor of owning. If you’re looking to purchase or refinance, seek out an experienced, trustworthy, financially savvy lender, that you can meet face to face, who has access to the full spectrum of loan and grant programs. Then work with them to select the proper loan and grant programs and have them customize them to best suit your needs. For more information on how you can purchase or refinance a home, please contact our lending expert, Randy Spierings, CPA (over 30 years), NMLS #217152, branch manager for Primary Residential Mortgage, Inc., a local lender you can trust, at 303-256-5748 or rspierings@primeres.com. www.

Willkommen to the Kit Kat Klub Menacing ‘Cabaret’ on stage at Aurora Fox Studio Theatre By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com Chairs in a semi-circle and little round tables, plus a circular center stage and big old-fashioned bar, give the Aurora Fox Studio Theatre a cabaret look, specifically the Kit Kat Klub, circa 1931, Berlin, for “Cabaret.” An uneasy feeling hovers over the small nightclub. Weimar Germany’s hedonistic approach to life was about to end as the Nazis came to power. The club’s dancers, skimpily clad in black, with torn stockings and distinct personalities, come onstage and begin to exercise as the live band begins to play “Willkommen.” And we meet the extraordinary, androgynous character called Emcee (Matt Lafontaine), who narrates, sings, dances and ties it all together. Somewhat threatening, he seems to represent the approaching dark times. Director/choreographer Danny Harrigan refers in a program note to “The Fosse Kaleidoscope that you will see” and the whole look of the show reflects early direction by the late Bob Fosse — in choreography and staging. Dark-rimmed eyes, exaggerated moves and a raw, sexy mood prevail in the club scenes. Music by John Kander and Fred Ebb won the 1967 Tony for Best Score, and “Cabaret” also won for Best Musical. It is a strong piece that will challenge a director. Harrigan’s production captures the dark

If you go “Cabaret” plays through May 12 at the Aurora Fox Studio Theatre, 9900 E. Colfax Ave., Aurora. Performances: 7:30 p.m. Fridays, Saturdays; 2:30 p.m. Sundays. Tickets: $27/$20, 720-362-2697, IgniteTheatre.com.

overlay, as well as some lovely music. The four-piece band, led by Brandon Bill on keyboard, enhances the production, although on a few occasions, it drowns out a singer. On the whole, sound is well-balanced. British singer Sally Bowles (Lindsey Falduto) moves between this seedy world and a potentially healthier one represented by American Cliff Bradley (Marcus Turner), a novelist who hopes Berlin will inspire him to write his next book. He falls in love with Sally and wants to take her to America, but she is unable to recognize the growing threat and returns to the nightclub instead. Chemistry between these two is a bit short. The other heartbreaking romance is between Fraulein Schneider (Barbara Porreca) and aging Jewish bachelor Herr Schultz (Brian Trampler), as she chooses political safety over a chance at love. Nazi presence comes through in the innocent-sounding song “Tomorrow Belongs to Me,” which is chilling when one recognizes it. Characters Ernst (Rob Janzen) and Fraulein Kost (Maggie Tisdale) lead here and are increasingly sinister. “Cabaret” is entertaining and challenging for adults — not appropriate for children. The relatively new Ignite Theatre company has taken another significant step forward.

Surrounded by sunshine, ancient architecture and olive groves, artist/instructor Susan Elliott and 11 former students and colleagues were in Italy last year for a twoweek workshop at La Romita, an art school situated in a 16th-century monastery in the Umbria region that once housed the Capuchin Order of Friars Minor. Because all were professionals, they had no instructor, but worked on their own projects in watercolor, oil, pastel and acrylic. The group is exhibiting resulting paintings in the Stanton Gallery at Littleton’s Town Hall Arts Center through June 18, with a public reception planned from 5-8 p.m. May 10. La Romita offers about 10 two-week workshops in various art disciplines and at various levels of skill each year, Elliott said. A visit to the La Romita website, laromita.org, shows a traditional stone house with red tile roof, surrounded by shrubs and trees. The owners write that it was a monastery until the early 19th century and has been in private ownership since the grandparents of the present owners, Enza and Paola Quargnali, bought it for a summer home and farm for olive and olive oil pro-

Lone Tree photo show returns

The Lone Tree Photographic Art Show & Sale started on April 20, but runs through June 9, and visitors can view nearly 100 images from local and international photographers at the Lone Tree Arts Center. More than 600 images from 214 photographers were entered for the show. Juror Weldon Lee said: “The number of great images submitted for this year’s Lone Tree art show was staggering, which made the jury process extremely challenging. Every category was packed with outstanding photographs.” Guests who attend the show can vote for the People’s Choice Award. For the first time, the show’s entries were divided into four categories: wildlife; digital art; nature and landscape; and people, places and travel. On May 18, Lee will present a photo seminar, “Photographing the Magical World of Wildlife,” from 3-6 p.m. Registration is $30 and is open to all levels of photographers. Photographers may register online at www.LoneTreeArtsCenter.org or by calling the box office at 720-509-1000. Lee has traveled the world’s most exotic locations photographing wildlife and

Artists were transported to surrounding hill towns to paint, including Orvieto, Assisi, Todi, Perugia and Spoleto, as well as ancient sites — and enjoyed “three scrumptious meals a day, prepared in northern Italian style,” said Elliott. Participating artists were from the Denver area, with one exception, and most were from the south metro area. Many were Elliott’s students at Arapahoe Community College, and she was joined by art department colleague Marsha Wooley, of Parker. Others were Bob Barr, Denise Eiseman, Cilla Englert, Sherri Hofland, Barbara Kloehn, Arlene Kunz and John Sandifer of Seattle. (Two others who traveled with the group will not be exhibiting.)

Nighttime photographer enchants Littleton man’s work named Best of Show

If you go The 2013 Lone Tree Photographic Art Show and Sale runs through June 9 at the Lone Tree Arts Center, 10075 Commons St., Lone Tree. It is open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays through Fridays and during performances. (When you visit, cast your vote for the People’s Choice award, to be given at the end of the show.) Information: LoneTreeArtsCenter, 720-5091000. Admission is free.

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com “We expected 370 or so and there were over 600,” juror Weldon Lee said of entries at the April 20 opening of the 2013 Lone Tree Photographic Art Show and Sale. “It was overwhelming — I went through them again and again. I needed to narrow to 90 … it hurt to take images out ....” He focused on images that told a story over those more technically perfect. The 93 images are thoughtfully displayed in the lobby and on adjacent hallway walls at the Lone Tree Arts Center. Lee awarded the teal Best of Show ribbon to Littleton photographer Mike Berenson, who specializes in capturing the Rocky Mountains at night — a magical world. His “Lenticular Mountain Milky Way” was shot at 4 a.m. on a moonless night at a ridgeline en route to Grizzly Peak. Berenson said he got a special permit from the state transportation department to leave his car at a parking spot off Loveland Pass and hiked three hours, with a companion, to reach this particular spot, where he knew the sky and reflections on the snow would be just so. (“Lenticular” is defined as relating to a lens.)

”Lenticular Mountain Milky Way” by Mike Berenson won Best of Show at the 2013 Lone Tree Photographic Show and Sale on April 20. Photo by Mike Berenson Lee, who also selected 12 images by Rock Canyon High School students for display, will offer a seminar for interested photographers from 3-6 p.m. May 18 at Lone Tree Arts Center.

He has traveled around the world photographing exotic wildlife, and has images in museums and private collections, in maga-

Lee’s other awards in the four categories for 2013 offer a rewarding potpourri of creative vision: • Wild Animals — First Place, Karen Kirkpatrick for “Nourishing Flora,” a close-up of a bee in a white echinecea flower.

The B.I.G. Day – Community Tradition Continues It was a day of giving and gratitude, sweat equity and camaraderie, dirty hands and warm smiles as the third annual B.I.G. Day (B.I.G. stands for Be Involved, Give) proved that community spirit is alive and very well in South Metro Denver. The Chamber’s Non-profit & Business Partnership lead by Steve Bocher of Catch Fire Marketing as Chair, and Laurian Horowitz of Colorado Life Lessons as Event Chair continued the community tradition. Although the turnout was smaller than last year’s recordbreaking event, the almost 337 volunteers were very motivated with some nonprofits having to create additional projects as the planned ones were accomplished in record time. Activities ran the gamut from planting vegetables at Denver Botanic Gardens at Chatfield, to building storage racks and organizing at SheShe’s Corner and planting trees and weeding at the Denver Botanic Gardens community garden. Medical supplies were sorted at Project CURE for shipment to 3rd world hospitals, and food boxes were packed at the Jeffco Action Center. Thomas Messina of Mountaintop Acupuncture enjoyed getting dirty at Denver Botanic Gardens at Chatfield: “It was great getting into the dirt to plant onions, I would work in the garden on a regular basis. It’s good to help the community. I want to thank the Chamber and everyone involved in making this happen. The Audubon Society of Greater Denver got trails cleaned up and readied for the summer months, and volunteers accomplished spring cleaning at Boys Hope Girls Hope. Alternatives Pregnancy

Center got their offices ship-shape in record time, and TLC Meals on Wheels of Littleton got must needed help with the preparation and delivery of meals to their elderly clients. South Suburban Parks got a sprucing up through the South Suburban Parks & Recreation Foundation volunteers while “spa boxes” were assembled for cancer patients at Spa 4 the Pink. “I’m a firm believer in giving to the community and whatever we give always seems to come back ten-fold. It also just plain feels good! Wonderful program! Great people! Thanks for facilitating and coordinating such an incredible event! Kudos to Lauren, the committee and all the sponsors,” stated Heidi Winter of European Wax Center who helped out at SheShe’s Corner. Many businesses and organizations came together and organized teams and groups of volunteers for the B.I.G. Day activities. CliftonLarsonAllen, InfoCubic, Webolutions, Silpada Designs, Leadapalooza Leads Group, The Leading Edge, Rotary Club of Littleton Sunrise, Catch Fire Marketing, Dream Catcher Affinity Group, American Heritage Girls, Sierra Ridge Networks, and NAMI Arapahoe/ Douglas County all came out in force to make the day a success. Brien Darby, Manager of the Denver Botanic Gardens community gardening program was thrilled with the experience. “I presented them with some very big tasks with a lot of digging and heavy lifting and they were just about the most enthusiastic group I have ever worked with! We completed all the tasks I had planned and even started on a few additional projects. I really appreciate the level of teamwork

and “ready for anything” attitude that we consistently receive from volunteers participating in the BIG help day.” After all of the hard work, it was time to blow off some steam as many of the volunteers gathered at the Chamber Center to celebrate the day. With a delicious lunch buffet served by event sponsor McCormick & Schmick’s, the group watched as Brian Olson of Conversation Starters had a video already prepared showing the day’s activities. The crowd gave a cheer of support for the B.I.G. Day and many expressed that this was just a beginning with many more hours of volunteer efforts were to come. Chamber Investor LokalMotion was also a sponsor of the event making it the best post-B.I.G. Day celebration yet. Chamber Nonprofit and Business Partnership Chair Steve Bocher of Catch Fire Marketing thanked the B.I.G. Day Organizing Committee members: Chair Laurian Horowitz of Colorado Life Lessons, Brian Olson of Conversation Starters, and Sandy Coen of SheShe’s Corner as well as all of the volunteers past and present. “ ...while the official tally isn’t in, you should take great pride in knowing that over the past three years 9,000-10,000 volunteer hours have been spent making our community a better, more prosperous place...and that thousands of lives have been touched because of the work that was accomplished during the B.I.G. Day. And also significant, thousands of people have been exposed to the great work of dozens of non-profits and many have stayed connected to these organizations and gone back to support them again!”

IF YOU GO Jennifer Riefenberg’s exhibit, “The High Line Canal: a 66 mile Journey of Plein Air Paintings” will be at Koelbel Library, 5955 S. Holly St., Centennial, through May 31. Open during library hours.

Color um.). “From its humble beginnings, through enda the rocky crags of Waterton Canyon to its nst a desolate and dry end just west of Denver Inagos” ternational Airport, the High Line Canal is a ions, treasure passing through the Front Range of Colorado,” artist Jennifer Riefenberg writes. lace, Riefenberg, a longtime member of the lace, Littleton Fine Arts Guild, which operates Third the Depot Art Center, has lived near the onorHigh Line Canal for the past 20 years, enjoyMcing a strong connection to its beauty. She has been a member of the High Line lace, Canal Preservation Association and at the cond same time, she has been doing a lot of plein nowy air painting (painting outdoors). acial She conceived the idea of walking the varik length of the canal and recording its spaces and seasons in a series of small oil paintlamings. hrys“I just decided to start and I never got Andi sick of painting. I could probably do 1,000 tion, and never get tired of the beauty” Riefenberg said. She expressed concern to her husband that she might end up with a great many paintings that looked alike, but each day was different. Oil paint was the medium of choice because it withstands summer’s dry heat and winter’s cold better than other mediums. Riefenberg’s paintings will be displayed at Koelbel Library in Centennial through May, with a public reception from 2-4 p.m. May 4. She has a total of about 60 paintings,

but is not certain they will all fit. The show is called “The High Line Canal: a 66 mile Journey of Plein Air Painting.” She tried to paint one day in every week at some point along the canal. “I jumped around and used the small wire-bound `Guide to the High Line Canal Trail,’ published by Denver Water as a guide,” Riefenberg said. She spent one and a half years and walked almost every mile. On each day, she wasn’t sure what she’d paint until she got there. One rule of thumb was that the canal or trail must appear in every painting. Sometimes, the view to the west was so striking that it tempted her eyes away. Zero mile in Waterton Canyon brings the water tumbling through a tunnel from the South Platte River. She slogged around in winter mud near 64th Avenue since there is no trail access to the dried out end of the canal. The trail guide helped her with places to park along the way and other useful information. It is available at bookstores. The south part — Greenwood Village and Cherry Hills — is the most difficult for parking spots and involved some long hikes. People she met along the way, especially in Denver and Aurora, were “a pleasurable experience — the kids were a blast.” Some

‘Collective Nest’ dedicated at Hudson Gardens site Outdoor sculpture represents protective space for wildlife By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com Sculptor Joshua Wiener recently explained his concept for “Collective Nest,” his new piece of public art installed at Hudson Gardens and Event Center. It uses contrasting curved and straight lines to form a giant nest that protects wildlife. The nest and supporting post are milled steel, which has already formed a coat of rust, which will protect it from further deterioration, he said. The fish and hawk in the nest are made of stainless steel and will not oxidize, providing contrast. Members of South Suburban Parks and Recreation District’s Public Art Committee hosted a dedication of the 22-foot-tall sculpture on April 21 for friends, family, the public and SSPR representatives. It is placed west of the amphitheater, where it will be enjoyed by concert audiences and is high enough to be visible from the Mary Carter Greenway as well.

IF YOU GO Hudson Gardens and Event Center is at 6115 S. Santa Fe Drive, Littleton. It is open daily from 9 a.m.-5 p.m., except for early closing on concert days. Admission is free for garden visits, but there is a charge for concerts. Hudsongardens.org. Close beyond it is the new Songbird Garden, which last fall had feeders, trees and shrubs installed that will attract birds. Soon, a group of perennials will go in, which also will provide food and nectar for birds. Said feathered friends will probably be seen perching on the giant nest. The garden area around the sculpture had been recently cleared with a prescribed burn and looked a bit bleak, but it should soon be filled again with blossoms and greenery next to the water garden. Visitors may enjoy watching it redevelop. Wiener, a Boulder resident, is the son of sculptor Madeline Wiener, who has a work in front of the Goodson Recreation Center. He teaches at Denver Art Students League and has works created in various materials across Colorado, including a cycling team in Durango and gates to the Carson Nature Center in Littleton.

It will be available to order for anyone interested and contains reproductions of the paintings plus her running text. “It’s such a treasure to so many people,” she says of the canal she now knows so well.

Competition tough at Liberty Bell Top athletes tested in continuing bid to land a state meet berth By Tom Munds

tmunds@ourcoloradonews.com Athletes from schools around the state traveled to Littleton April 26 and 27 for the Liberty Bell Invitational Track Meet for the opportunity to match their talents against some of the best competition in the state. “This is one of the final big meets before state, the competition level is high and so kids making bids to go to state get to see the caliber of competition they will face there,” said Larry Lienemann, one of the meet founders. Sixty-two schools were represented at the meet so the battles were fierce for the top spot in every event. Cherry Creek’s girls won the team title for the second year in a row. The Bruins were first in the standings with 76 points and the Arapahoe girls were second with 64 points while ThunderRidge finished third with 42 points. Rock Canyon finished 11th with 26

Arapahoe’s Jonathan Johannsen pushes to stay ahead of Heritage runner Andrew Hunter in the 4 X 800-meter relay at the April 27 Liberty Bell meet. Sixty-two schools were represented at the meet.

Fort Carson topped the team title with 84 points. Arapahoe and Cherry Creek tied for fourth with 32 points each and a host of local teams finished in the top 20 with Valor Christian eighth, Heritage 11th, Mountain Vista 12th, Highlands Ranch 14th, Castle View 15th and Douglas County 16th. Freshman Ashley Miller did her share to help Cherry Creek’s girls win the team title as she finished first in the 100-meter hurdles and the 300-meter hurdles and joined forces with Jessica Daubert, Megan McCabe and Emily Romo to win the 4x100 relay. “When I started doing track a couple years ago, I thought it was cool to jump over stuff so I started running the hurdle events,” Miller said. “I am getting better at the events because I am getting faster and I am putting in more work to improve the techniques you need

to be competitive in the hurdles.” The freshman said the competition at the Liberty Bell was challenging and helped her take another step to drop her time in the 100 hurdles to 13.5 seconds. Arapahoe scored a lot of points in the relays to help the Warriors take runner-up honors in the girls division. Arapahoe took first place in the 4x400 relay and the 4x800 relay and was second in the 4x200 relay. Taryn Phillips helped the Warrior cause by winning the 400-meter dash with a time of 55.62 seconds. Littleton’s Barry Visser and teammates Jake Bergman, Jack Bobb and D’Angelo DeNiro finished sixth in the 4x400-meter relay, Visser’s favorite event. “I started running track to get in shape for soccer but my brother graduated two years ago, he ran track so I decided to run track too,” he said. “It turned out to be

Cherry Creek captures golf tournament at Rolling Hills Ringsby’s 69 leads Bruins over second-place Arapahoe By Scott Stocker

Special to Colorado Community Media When it comes to the Ashley Forey Girls Golf Tournament played at the Rolling Hills Golf Course in Golden, it’s been back-andforth for the teams from Cherry Creek and Arapahoe. Cherry Creek and Arapahoe have won the past four tournaments. This one went to Cherry Creek, with 2012 to Arapahoe, 2011 to the Bruins, 2010 to the Warriors. And it’s a tournament both schools have been eager to attend over the past 19 seasons. Cherry Creek, led by medalist Calli

Ringsby, who shot 69, won the tourney on April 29 with a 220, followed by Arapahoe with 226, Valor Christian third with (245), Legacy fourth (251) and Fairview fifth (253). Ringsby also found herself back as the medalist as she had won the tournament when she was a freshman in 2011. She was joined in the team trophy presentation by teammates Mackenzie Cohen (73), Dani Urman (78) and Margot Leibold (95). “This tournament is such a lot of fun,” Ringsby said. “It’s so it’s great to be back on top. It was an up and down day as I had five birdies, but to many bogies for me. This is really a great course and all of our team played well today.” And that certainly held true for Cherry Creek coach Bob Kubiak. “We played excellent today and that 69

‘This tournament is such a lot of fun. It’s so great to be back on top.’ Calli Ringsby by Calli was great,” Kubiak said. “I’m just very happy with the way the girls played. We’ve only had five meets this season - the weather has been hard on everyone, but today was just great. We just hope it can continue for a few more weeks.” No doubt it was a good day for Cohan, too.

“I had my best score of the season today,” Cohan said. “I just love this course and it was a lot of fun out there. The greens were tough and I just wanted to stay on the lower edge of the holes. I think I accomplished that. As a team, we certainly had the good day.” The silver medal went to Arapahoe’s Claudia Davis, who came through with a 71. She was joined on the teams award stand by teammates Holly Schafee (76), Hannah Wood (79) and Nikki Bachman (95). “It was a beautiful day with great weather,” Davis said. “I just wish we could have had more of them this season. We have a lot of good competition with Cherry Creek and we’ve been one-two, I think, over the past four seasons here. I played well, but would have like to have had a few less strokes.”

Much unsettled as baseball season nears end Continental teams scramble for spots in playoffs

jbenton@ourcoloradonews.com Continental League baseball teams wrap up regular-season play this week, but there was still a lot to be decided in the closing games. The top five teams in the league will earn automatic spots in the 32-team state playoff bracket, with seedings still to be determined. There will also be seven wild-card berths available, and several Continental teams will be scrambling to improve their credentials. Chaparral, the state’s No 2 ranked Class 5A team, faced Rock Canyon April 29, ThunderRidge May 1, and a yet-to-be-rescheduled makeup game against Mountain Vista as the Wolverines tried to hold off secondplace Regis Jesuit and possibly host one of the eight district tournaments that will be played May 11.

the bottom of the seventh to edge Douglas County 3-2 April 25. Spencer Olwell and Zac Guy collected the runs batted in. The Wolverines notched a five-inning 12-2 league win over Castle View April 26 but dropped a 5-4 non-league game to No. 7 Rocky Mountain at Coors Field April 27, which snapped Chaparral’s 10-game winning streak. It was a tough game for Chaparral coach Tony Persichina to manage. Obviously the Wolverines wanted to win against a team ranked in the top 10, but at the same time, Persichina wanted to let all his players get into the game played at the home of the National League Colorado Rockies. Kuhns, the Wolverines’ leading batter, hit ninth in the lineup. “It’s an experience you cannot take away from the kids,” Persichina said. “We started one through five in the lineup, guys that don’t get a lot of playing time, but if I have the opportunity for kids to play on a stage like this, to take that away from them would not be right. “It was tough. You still want to win the game. You second-guess yourself, but you know you are doing the right thing for your

players and students.” Spencer Ibarra’s two-run double in the bottom of the sixth inning provided Rocky Mountain with the winning margin. Lobos starting pitcher Grant Gamble struck out the first six batters he faced and fanned nine of the 19 batters. Chaparral had most of its regulars in the lineup in the closing innings and had the tying run on base in the seventh. “It was timely hits by them and no timely hits by us and pitchers not having command and throwing balls.” Persichina said. “We move a guy one spot, our pitcher locates the ball and it’s a different ball game. Our kids have to understand that this is one game and move on. We have to finish strong going into the playoffs. “I feel pretty good. You can’t feel much better than having a 10-game winning streak.” ThunderRidge dropped out of a secondplace tie when the Grizzlies lost, 5-3, to Regis April 26. The loss followed a 9-2 win over Mountain Vista April 25 that was highlighted by Brody Westmoreland’s home run, two hits and three RBIs. ThunderRidge scored 11 runs in the sixth inning in a 17-0 rout over

Heritage that saw Westmoreland collect three hits. ThunderRidge scored twice in the bottom of the seventh against Regis, but Brody Weiss’ controversial two-run home run in the Raiders’ 3-run fourth inning provided the winning margin. ThunderRidge argued that the home run, hit down the third base line, was foul. “We just couldn’t get that big hit,” ThunderRidge coach Joe White said. “Regis is a good team. We fought them hard and it was good for us to play a game like that to see where we are. We battled at the end and that was nice to see.” But what about Weiss’ homer? “There was absolutely no chance that the ball was fair,” White said. “They beat us by two and that was a 2-run homer. That’s the difference in the game.” There wasn’t much difference between Legend, Castle View, Mountain Vista and Rock Canyon heading into the final week of the regular season as they try to secure the fourth- and fifth-place spots in the league standings. Only two of the four have a chance to claim an automatic state playoff berth. The other teams will have to sweat out an at-large bid.

Track meet at Littleton High School draws massive field Athletes from 62 schools face day of tough competition By Tom Munds

y be- Athletes wearing uniforms of all the colplusors of the rainbow filled the football field therswhile friends, families and teammates her.” occupied just about every Littleton High bethSchool Stadium seat April 27 at the Liberty sh inBell Invitational Track and Field Meet. sec- “This is a major meet because it is late in aileythe season and there isn’t a lot of time left to ith aqualify for state,” said Sherri Rossing, Heri-

tage girls track coach and one of the event organizers. “It is a challenge logistically to put on a meet this size and we couldn’t do this without a lot of volunteers. We have 142 kids on the track team and all their parents are helping us put on this meet by staffing the gates, working the concessions or other needed tasks. We have a big field, the competition will be top caliber so it should be a great meet.” Heritage track coach Nick Hayes started the Liberty Bell meet in 1973. “Back then it was a boys-only meet,” said Larry Lienemann, one of the meet’s founders. “Back then, we had two classifications

by school size and we had 21 teams total at that first meet. We started at 3:30 in the afternoon. All the timing and scoring was done by hand and we has so many heats to run that the meet didn’t wrap up until after 3 a.m.” The meet grew over the years but remained a boys-only meet with two classifications. In 2006, there was a section added for girls teams and in 2008, organizers went to a single boys division and a single girls division for all participants, regardless of school size. Lienemann said another reason the Liberty Bell is popular is the change in the

method to qualify for the state meet. For decades, the qualifying competition was the league meet. In the late 1990s, the state changed the system to the one that is still used. Now, the state establishes qualifying standards and an athlete or relay team must meet that standard to be considered for a spot at the state meet. Qualifying can only be done at meets that have the state-required equipment operating. All the athletes and relay teams that meet the standards at a qualifying meet are then eligible for state but only the top 16 in each event advance to compete for a state title.
