Mistake invalidates test scores Two teachers make error in proctoring By Tom Munds

tmunds@ourcoloradonews.com Human error in administering ninthgrade state student assessment tests resulted in no-score reports for math and writing for most of Englewood High School’s freshmen. “Two teachers were proctoring the ninth-grade math and writing tests,” said

Karen Brofft, Englewood assistant school superintendent. “They were trained and prepared to administer three tests per day in a scheduled order. Somehow there was a mistake, and the mix-up in how the tests were given resulted in what is called misadministration of state tests.” The district sent a March 15 letter to the parents of all Englewood High School students explaining the issue and the state rules dictating what happened. “I read the letter and I guess I understand the problem,” Englewood resident Tanya Harrison said. “My stepdaughter is

a sophomore and this doesn’t impact her. But I am glad the district let everyone know what happened.” Brofft said the situation happened because the schedule called for students to take math test 1, writing test 1 and writing test 2 on the first day and to take writing test 2 the next day. The proctor team mistakenly had the students take math test 1, math test 2 and writing test 1 the first day. “The next day, the proctors realized their mistake and reported it to the school, who called me and I then reported it to the Colorado Department of Education,” Brofft said.

“The rules are if tests are misadministered, students could talk about the test, which would give students who were taking the test later taking an advantage. The result is the scores of all those who took the misadministered tests become a zero.” The assistant superintendent said the teachers proctoring the test felt very bad about their mistake, and she said the school took the appropriate action in the matter. However, since this is a personnel matter, she said the names of the teachers will not be released. Scores continues on Page 9

Choir show combines many voices Five choruses join in Festival Choir Concert By Tom Munds

tmunds@ourcoloradonews.com Choral music replaced the sounds of sports activities in the Englewood High School fieldhouse during the March 19 Festival Choir Concert. The concert featured singers from five Englewood schools: Bishop and Clayton elementaries, Englewood Middle School, Englewood Leadership Academy and Englewood High School. “This is the second year we have done the festival choir concert in celebration of Music in Our Schools Month,” said Garlyn Saddler Bello, EHS choral director. “There are 250 voices taking part in tonight’s program. There will be a time when all the singers are on stage, plus there will be songs performed by one school’s choir as well as songs performed by special groups of singers like the Englewood Talent Company.”

A crowd packed the Englewood High School fieldhouse during the Festival Choir Concert. Choirs from five Englewood schools joined together, and also had individual performances during the program. She said preparations for the program have been under way for a while, with performers practicing their music.

“We only had one night, March 18, to rehearse but everyone has worked hard and the rehearsal went very well,” Saddler Bello said. “I think the biggest challenge I had putting the performance together was the planning and timing so all the equipment and people were in place at the right time.” In her opening comments, the EHS choral director said the event was an opportunity to bring attention to music programs in the schools. She said the program was designed to include a wide range of songs such as the oldies pop favorite “Sixteen Tons,” the spiritual “Joy in My Heart” and the Irish folk song “Maria’s Wedding.” Choir continues on Page 9

By a 4-to-3 straw poll vote, the Englewood City Council directed staff to draft legislation that would prohibit setting up any aspect of the recreational marijuana industry in the city. The proposal would prohibit marijuana cultivation facilities, marijuana product manufacturing facilities, retail marijuana stores, marijuana bars and marijuana testing facilities anywhere in the city of Englewood. The proposed legislation would have no impact on the three medical marijuana stores located in the city. The decision came during the March 18 study session discussion about establishing rules to govern the recreational marijuana industry, which became legal with the voter passage of Amendment 64. “The governor’s Amendment 64 Implementation Task Force completed its work and sent the recommendations to the state Legislature,” Dan Brotzman, city attorney, told the council. “It appears there will be a two-tier system of state plus local rules.” The council then began talking about what local rules should be implemented. A discussion of the criminal section pointed out that local laws must agree with the Colorado Constitution, except that they can be more restrictive. Brotzman said the suggestion was to deal with possession of marijuana in vehicles or smoking it in public like similar violations of the liquor laws. The council gave consensus agreement to the suggestion and Brotzman noted it made preparing the regulations easier. Council Member Rick Gillit said many constituents in his district want no retail facilities in the city. He said Amendment 64 allows people to possess less than an ounce of marijuana for private use and it allows people to grow marijuana in their homes as long as they comply with established rules. The state constitutional provision also allows local governmental agencies to ban the recreational operations. Gillit then suggested city regulations be established prohibiting any retail marijuana operations in Englewood. Mayor Randy Penn asked for a consensus on Gillit’s proposal. Four council members, Gillit, Bob McCaslin, Linda Olson and Jill Wilson, supported the proposal, while Penn, Mayor Pro Tem Jim Woodward and Council Member Joe Jefferson opposed it. Plans are to bring the issue to the regular council meeting for a formal vote. “The people of Englewood strongly supported Amendment 64,” Jefferson said. “I Marijuana continues on Page 9

Modmarket locating in Kent Place Restaurant to serve fine food prepared quickly By Tom Munds

tmunds@ourcoloradonews.com The owners of Modmarket decided to establish their fifth metro-area restaurant by leasing the final retail vacancy in the Kent Place development. “My partner and I really like the area,” said Anthony Pigliacampo, co-founder. “It is a nice development, there are a lot of people in the area and there are not a lot of dining-out options in the area.” The Modmarket is a fast casual restaurant offering simple, wholesome food prepared from scratch. The menu includes salads, soups, sandwiches and plates with prices ranging from $6 to $10. Pigliacampo said the layout of all Modmarket Restaurants is similar in that the kitchens are open so customers can watch their meals being prepared. However, the seating area and decorations differ at each location to fit in with that specific neighborhood. Work is under way on the space, with plans for the restaurant to open by midJune serving breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Planned hours are to be from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. during the week and 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. on weekends. When the store opens, there will be a staff of 35 to 40 people, with about 70 percent of the people working full-time. Pigliacampo said he and his partner are excited to bring this type of restaurant that should fit in nicely with the other stores in Kent Place. “We feel the new Fresh Fare by King Soopers store is a plus for our new restaurant location,” he said. “We feel that store attracts shoppers interested in purchasing healthy food, which should be a natural crossover to stopping by our restaurant.” He said it is a nice neighborhood for the restaurant and it was a pleasant surprise when they learned that there were 400 apartments being built adjacent to the Kent Place retail development. Pigliacampo and his partner, Rob McColgan, opened the first Modmarket Restaurant in 2009 in Boulder. “We eat out a lot and we found there were not a lot of places where we wanted to eat on a regular basis. It wouldn’t be good for our health,” he said. “So, we came up with this concept of a restaurant serving healthy, wholesome food and opened our first location. We have four locations operating and Kent Place will be number five.”

Three offers submitted for depot City council weighing proposals to buy Englewood train station By Tom Munds

tmunds@ourcoloradonews.com Englewood put its historic train depot up for sale, and the city has received three offers to buy the building. The proposals came from the Englewood Historic Preservation Society, the Englewood Urban Farm and Tom and Patti Parson. The historic preservation society wants to turn the depot into a community history museum, the urban farm seeks to establish an urban farm community center, and the Parsons want to create a living museum of letterpress printing. All three proposals plan restoration of the depot. The preservation society and the urban farm both would depend largely on approvals of grant requests to provide funds for restoration. The Parsons pledged personal assets and earnings from printing operations to pay for the restoration. The preservation society proposal calls for the city to sell the organization the depot for $1 and for the organization to sign a longterm lease with the city for the land. The lease payment would be 10 percent of the gross revenues generated by the society, estimated at $6,500 in the first year and growing to an average of $10,000 a year by the fifth year. The Englewood Urban Farm website notes that cofounder Eric Runstadler has created the Glencoe Homestead, a Denver urban farm that demonstrates how to keep a garden, bees, chick-

The city received three offers in response to a request for proposals to buy the Englewood Depot. The city council is considering the three proposals. File photo ens and goats in an urban environment. In its Englewood proposal, the urban farm seeks a three-year lease-to-purchase agreement with annual lease payments of $50,000 a year for three years. The Parsons would pay $30,000 cash to buy the depot. Members of the Englewood City Council met in executive session to review the proposals. The reason given for the executive session is that there are proprietary financial information contained in the documents. The three offers were a result of the city council’s approval to publish a request for proposals in November, seeking creative redevelopment and adaptive use of the 1915-era train depot. The request-for-proposal package explained the city’s sale process, contained information about the building and outlined the city’s expectation that the buyer will be able to follow guidelines for historic restoration before putting the building to use. Englewood initially used a request-for-proposal process in a move to sell the depot in November 2011. In April, the only offer had been presented would have

done historic restoration to the depot so it could be used as a company’s offices. But a large number of

residents spoke against the sale and the potential buyer withdrew his bid. Several residents established the

Englewood Historic Preservation Society, seeking to turn the depot into a museum. Another proposal was to build a chocolate museum and factory adjacent to the depot and make the depot into an Englewood museum. The city council has met several times to discuss the future of the depot and finally agreed to again use the request-for-proposal process to seek a buyer. The depot was built by the Santa Fe Railroad in 1915 and was located on the east side of the tracks near the U.S. Highway 285 underpass under South Santa Fe Drive. It served as a passenger and freight stop on the railroad. During World

War II it was a transfer point from main-line trains to the spur line running to Fort Logan. Depot use declined and it was closed in the 1950s. It sat idle until the site was purchased and the developer planned to demolish the depot if it wasn’t moved. In 1994, the Englewood Historical Society moved the depot to its present location on South Galapago Street along Dartmouth Avenue. The building has sat empty since it was moved. However, it was placed on the State Register of Historic Places and a partial restoration was done. The society deeded the depot back to the city in 2002.

Disaster drill tests community responders Volunteers match wits with mock tornado, real snowstorm By Deborah Grigsby

dgrigsby@ourcoloradonews. com In spite of a snowstorm, volunteers with the Community Emergency Response Team went looking for tornado victims. Although the tornado didn’t really happen, the snowstorm did, and more than 80 local volunteers took part in a countywide mock disaster drill on March 23 in Littleton. “This is our sixth year of conducting the exercise,” said CERT Coordinator Mickey Kempf, “but the snowstorm this year is a relatively new concept.” The CERT program educates people about disaster preparedness, particularly for hazards that may impact their area, said Scott Sickafoose, spokesman for the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office. Volunteers train in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization and disaster

More than 80 community volunteers came together for the event, which educates local volunteers to help in times of disaster. Photo by Deborah Grigsby medical operations. “The key concept is for CERT members to be able to help others in their neighborhood or workplace following an event when professional first responders may

not be immediately available,” he said. “Volunteers also learn ways they can keep themselves alive until help can arrive.” The day-long exercise, held

at the Metro Fire Training Center in Littleton, was modified from its original outdoor agenda and moved inside to accommodate volunteer victims, mostly Centennial Boy Scouts from Troop 456.

“It was fun, but got pretty boring at times,” said 12-year-old Campbell Zantop-Zimlinghaus, a first-time role-player who braved the cold weather for the outdoor search and rescue task. “I was just waiting and waiting.” Campbell’s twin brother Peyton said the experience provided insight into how he might respond as a victim of disaster. “I think if I really was a victim, I think I would try to do more to be rescued,” he said. “I don’t think I’d just sit around and wait for people to find me.” Tabletop exercises forced participants to think through a variety of disaster scenarios, including earthquakes. “For every hour spent in an exercise, there are about 10 hours spent in training,” said Max Khaytsus, president of OMEGA Responders, a nonprofit search and rescue organization trained to support emergency responders. “Exercises and regular training are important to prevent skill atrophy.” CERT programs, according to Kempf, are funded by both state and federal resources, but also through support and donations from local businesses.

Schomp helps animal shelter go mobile ‘Adoption-mobile,’ donation coming from dealership By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@ourcoloradonews.com What did one puppy at the Humane Society of the South Platte Valley say to the other puppy? ROAD TRIP! Ralph Schomp Honda is providing a huge boost to the center, building an “adoption-mobile” to take the pets to the people. Staff will chauffeur them to two or three adoption events every weekend

through the fall at a variety of festivals, farmers markets, malls and retail outlets. “This is such an exciting opportunity for the Humane Society of the South Platte Valley,” said Leslie Maisonneuve, facilities coordinator. “The partnership will help us reach out to even more folks in our community, and, in turn, allow us to find more homes for animals in need. … As you can only imagine, we were just overwhelmed by their generosity and passion for helping the animals in our community.” Schomp is also kicking in $15,000 to help sponsor community activities at HSSPV, such as training

classes and lecture series on topics like animal welfare. “We are really looking forward to the partnership,” said Jay Andre, Schomp’s general manager. “This is a very unique opportunity that fits in well with our commitment to give back to our community. I have to say, I’m really excited about building the adoption vehicle. It will be a fun project for us, and we really believe that it will help the humane society find homes for so many more wayward animals.” Maisonneuve has been working hard to stabilize the facility since she took the helm last October. The partnership with Schomp

helps fulfill her goals of getting the community more involved and making the shelter more efficient. Littleton and Englewood each provided $100,000 to kick-start HSSPV in 2009, and agreed to pay $50,000 a year for animal-sheltering services. Both councils gave the shelter an extra $41,000 for 2012 — for a total of $91,000 each. Littleton City Manager Michael Penny warned he expected it to be the last time. Since then, Mayor Debbie Brinkman has been working with surrounding communities to explore options for housing lost or abandoned animals throughout the south metro region.

He said plans call for the contractor to take out the medians, allowing traffic to be shifted. Shifting the lanes at Belleview and Broadway may require eliminating the two left-turn lanes for the duration of the project. Kahm said the projects will make it difficult to get to some of the businesses in those two locations.

The city is working with Denver Water to send out notifications to 1,400 residents and businesses in the next week. One of the projects is in the middle of the intersection of Belleview and Broadway. The state highway department has told Denver Water that all work on that project must be done only on weekends. The exact dates of the work haven’t been established. With the anticipated traffic disruption, Kahm said Englewood is working with Littleton to place message signs warning drivers about the construction on Broadway from mid-April until at least mid-May as far south as Mineral Avenue.

Man arrested after police hear gunfire 20-year-old suspect first spotted by Denver officers By Tom Munds

tmunds@ourcoloradonews.com Englewood police arrested a 20-year-old man who allegedly was firing a gun in the air in the area of West Wesley Avenue and South Zuni Street. The incident was reported about 5:15 a.m. March 23 when Denver police officers in the area on an unrelated matter heard shots fired and investigated. One Denver officer reported seeing a

man at the Wesley-Zuni intersection firing a handgun down the street. When the officer challenged the man, the suspect reportedly tossed the pistol over his shoulder as he raised his hand and then ran. Officers saw the man run into a house in the 2300 block of West Wesley Avenue. Englewood police went to the house and located the 20-year-old suspect. A warrant had previously been issued for his arrest on a different matter. The suspect was arrested and taken to Arapahoe County Jail where, in addition to the warrant charges, he could face charges related to the weapon and firing the shots.

now is the time to prepare for wildfires Colorado’s first major wildfire of the year didn’t even wait until spring. The Galena Fire prompted evacuations while scorching more than 1,300 acres near Fort Collins earlier this month. The blaze was an all-too-early reminder of what Coloradans went through last year, what many consider the state’s worst ever for wildfires. Statistics, provided by the Colorado Division of Fire Prevention and Control, tell the toll in 2012: Nearly 400,000 acres were burned. More than half a billion dollars in property was lost. The Waldo Canyon Fire alone destroyed nearly 350 homes. More than $48 million was spent in suppression efforts for the 16 largest wildfires of the year. Six civilians were killed. Already in 2013, we must turn our atten-

our view tion to fire from ice. Even after several recent storms, snowpack is below normal levels and the state’s drought lingers. With little relief in sight, Denver Water and other utilities recently announced watering restrictions. It’s possible open-burning bans are not far behind in the metro area and around the state.

“I think it should extend to marriage. I believe in equality across the board. I see a lot of similarities between civil rights for African-Americans in the past and what’s happening now ….” — Corie Hudspeth, Littleton

hanging on in quiet desperation Forty years ago, Paige Ernster invited me over to her Westwood apartment to listen to a new vinyl album. I listened to the entire album from start to finish. Now and then I still do. I know you know the album, and you might even know every “heartbeat, clock tick, and register ring” by heart, but I’ll bet you a case of Guinness that you can only name one song on the album: “Money.” “Money” made it to the radio, even with a profanity. Here are some other titles: “Speak to Me,” On the Run,” and “The Great Gig in the Sky.” See what I mean? You don’t know them by name, just by sound. And the sound is brilliant. “The Dark Side of the Moon” was recorded in two sessions in 1972 and 1973 at Abbey Road Studios in London. “Dark Side” was different from the band’s seven previous albums, because there were fewer extended instrumental excursions, and because the songs were seamed together. The album’s themes include “conflict, greed, the passage of time, and mental illness, the latter partly inspired by former band member Syd Barrett’s deteriorating mental state.” The lunatic is in the hall The lunatics are in my hall The paper holds their folded faces to the floor And every day the paper boy brings more. I still see the album’s cover art on Tshirts worn by teenagers. The band had seven Storm Thorgerson designs to chose from. It took them three minutes to decide. “The band trooped in,” Thorgerson said, “swept their gaze across the designs, looked at each other, nodded, and said, `That one,’ pointing at the prism.” Other things you might like to know: The original working title of the album was “Eclipse” because the previous year a group called Medicine Head had released their own “Dark Side of the Moon.” When it flopped, Pink Floyd claimed the title. “Money” is one of the few hit singles ever to utilize 7/4 signature time. I have no

idea what that means. “At the very end of `Eclipse,’ in the right channel, there is the faint sound of a Muzak version of the Beatles’ `Ticket to Ride.’” A lot of these tidbits can be picked up in the documentary, “The Making of The Dark Side of the Moon.” I recommend it. I was in my mid-20s when I spent that afternoon with Paige. I was a college student. I didn’t know what was going to happen to me, so there was a lot of apprehension. And there should have been. An art degree is notorious for being impractical and almost worthless to employers. To employers other than college and universities, which is where I landed for 30 years. I lifted the name of this column from one of the songs, “Time,” and band member Roger Waters lifted the words from a Henry David Thoreau poem: “Most men lead lives of quiet desperation and go to the grave with the song still in them.” It’s easy for me to become sentimental about “The Dark Side of the Moon.” It has been in a sidecar with me for 40 years. I haven’t always stayed on the road. One troubling night, I heard “Speak to Me.” Every year is getting shorter, never seem to find the time Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way The time is gone, the song is over Thought I’d something more to say.

would create a state aerial firefighting fleet. The bipartisan proposal is a response to the dry conditions in the state and to the federal government’s dwindling fleet of firefighting aircraft, which Colorado relies on for help with large blazes. “Quite frankly, we are one lightning strike, one careless match throw, one terrorist intentional match throw away from a catastrophic wildfire in Colorado,” said state Sen. Steve King, R-Grand Junction, who planned to be a sponsor of the bill. At this point, we can’t pass judgment on whether creating the fleet is the right way to go. The bill had not even been introduced as of press time. Further, the lawmakers shied away from answering questions on the program’s cost, which would include the initial funding plus

maintenance. Certainly, it wouldn’t be cheap. But we will applaud the legislators for bringing attention to and taking seriously the wildfire threat facing Colorado. The state needs more officials working toward solutions — not merely making speeches in the grim aftermath — when it comes to this issue. The burden is not on officials alone, however. We all play a role in wildfire prevention and safety. Make sure to take precautions like creating a “defensible space,” an area free from brush, around your home. If your city or county imposes open-burning restrictions in the months ahead, follow them. A year from now, we don’t want to look back at 2013 the way we do 2012.

a lot going on at ‘the Cap’ There’s a lot going on down at “the Cap,” as we say, and my personal plate has been full as well. Thought you’d like to see the progress of some of my bills this session. • On March 15, my first bill of 2013 was signed into law! HB 13-1084 addresses child care licensing status when a new FEIN (Federal tax identity number) is issued. This legislation seeks to reduce child care costs for parents by eliminating duplicative red tape for child care providers while maintaining the integrity, safety, and quality infrastructure of the child care center licensing process. • Cutting red tape and streamlining for government and business owner efficiency is one of my favorite things to do as a legislator. On March 20, HB 13-1223 passed the Senate Health and Human Services Committee. This bill helps small health insurance companies and Division of Insurance staff by modifying reporting requirements. • SB 13-163 has passed through both chambers, and is now on its way to the Governor for signing. This continues the Colorado Infant Hearing Advisory Committee (CIHAC). The CIHAC makes recommendations on guidelines for newborn hearing screening and best practices for hospitals, audiologists, early interventionists, and physicians. Our Colorado advisory committee has received national attention for its innovation and effectiveness in identifying close to 100 newborns with hearing loss every year. Finding and treating this condition early helps the child, the parents, and the taxpayers. • I’m really excited about my HB 131147 that passed through the Senate State, Veterans, and Military Affairs Committee on March 20. This bill gives college students an opportunity to register to vote at the time of course enrollment. I am proud to encourage young adults to start a lifelong habit of participating in civic engagement by being registered voters!

• On March 21, HB 13-1060 passed through the Senate Local Government Committee. I’m enjoying working with Mayor Tisdale of Cherry Hills, Mayor Rakowsky of Greenwood Village, and the Colorado Municipal League on their one bill they’re proposing this year. Maximum municipal court fines have not been increased in 21 years. So, in order to keep up with current economies and growing lawlessness of “bad actors,” this bill allows a municipal judge to fine a person or entity up to $2,650 when convicted of violating a municipal ordinance. Another example of bipartisan efforts to solve challenges! • HB 13-1104 regulates mental health professionals, repeals the requirement that these professionals orally disclose their credentials, maintains written disclosure, and modifies the peer health assistance program for the practitioners.

Library operates career help center Facility offers equipment, assistance for job search; volunteers are needed By Tom Munds

tmunds@ourcoloradonews.com Jayne Green said, being new to the community, she went to the Englewood Public Library, found out about the career help center and launched her search for a job. “This is the first time I have searched for a job in years, and so much has changed,” she said. “The staff has been very helpful. For example, my resume is probably 15 years old and definitely had to be rewritten, plus they have helped me with online applications, which are all new to me.” Green is among those who have used the services provided by the library’s career help center. The center has eight computer stations with software for drafting resumes and cover letters, but none of the computers is connected to the Internet. A table at the front of the center holds a wide variety of informational bulletins and publications to assist job-seekers. There is no charge to use the career help

Starting in April, the center’s hours will be 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. “The library staff starting talking about the need for a career help center about a

year ago, and we got it set up and it opened in August 2012,” said Leigh Bertman, who staffs the center. “We have the area reserved three days a week and are on hand to help those who are using the computer in their job search.” She said there are four to six people in the center each time it is open.

“We have a wide range of people using the center,” Bertman said. “We have individuals with a wealth of job experience and advanced degrees and we even have a few people who are looking for a job for the first time.” The center has developed templates for resumes and cover letters. Bertman said the templates are based on what is best received by respective employers. She said the center is seeking volunteers with some expertise in computer use and in how to navigate the job market. Colleen Homedale was among those at the center March 14. Her job was eliminated in January. She discovered the library help center and said the staff had been marvelous. “Leigh and other staff members have been so helpful,” she said. “They really know their stuff and, while they guide you in preparing a resume or cover letter, they encourage you to make the end product reflect who you are and what you can do.” She said she had built a file of resumes and cover letters with each one tailored for a particular job application. “I can’t say enough good things about the center and the staff,” Homedale said. “They have really helped me in my search for a new job.”

Library to host best-selling author C.J. Box will talk about latest Joe Pickett novel By Tom Munds

tmunds@ourcoloradonews.com Author C.J. Box, whose novels regularly appear on The New York Times best-seller list, will visit Englewood. The session with the author starts at 2 p.m. April 6 and will be held in Hampden Hall, located on the second floor of the Englewood Civic Center, 1000 Englewood Parkway. There is no cost to attend the session. “I am looking forward to coming back to Colorado and, in particular, coming to Englewood,” Box said during a phone interview. “I really enjoy appearing at libraries because they are usually less crowded than book signings, plus this session generally attracts a wider range of readers of different kinds of books.” The Cheyenne resident is probably best known for his books about game warden Joe Pickett. “I started out to retell a story about the efforts to protect an endangeredspecies ferret. It seemed a game warden would be a natural main character and Joe Pickett was born,” the author said. “The book was well received and the publisher wanted me to write more Joe Pickett novels, so I did. My latest book, “Breaking Point,” is the 13th Joe Pickett novel.” He said he is a writer who works under deadlines and writes every day that he isn’t on the road on a book tour. “I am fortunate because the source of ideas about the outdoors and the environment that are the theme of my books never seem to run dry,” he said. “I have been able to submit a Joe Pickett novel about once a

The latest book by C.J. Box is the 13th Joe Pickett novel. Box will be making a personal appearance in Englewood on April 6. Courtesy photos year. My latest novel came just came out and I am already working on my next book.” Box began his writing career as a journalist for a small newspaper in Wyoming. He had several other jobs and eventually created a company to promote the Rocky Mountains overseas. He ran the company for 23 years and, in 2001, left to become a full-time author. He said he spends a lot of time on the Joe Picket novels, but added that he also finds time to write other stand-alone books that are not part of that series.

Weather forces egg-hunt change Snowy forecast prompts postponement to March 30 for event at Miller Field By Tom Munds

tmunds@ourcoloradonews.com Englewood Parks and Recreation Department believed the snowy forecast and reset the date for the Great Egg Hunt from March 23 to March 30. All the Great Egg Hunt details, except the date, remain unchanged. The event will be held at Miller Field, 3600 S. Elati St. Gates open at 9:30 a.m. and the signal to start gathering goodies sounds at 10. The event is for 1- to 8-year-olds. The cost is $1 per child and all the young hunters are

asked to bring a container for the loot they collect. Early arrivals chat and socialize as they gather behind the tape while volunteers complete the task of littering the grass with an abundance of plastic eggs, goodies and toys. The crowd is usually large so, to give all the children the opportunity to collect goodies, the hunting grounds are clearly marked off into four areas, one area for each of the four age groups. There are separate areas for 1- and 2-year-olds, 3- and 4-year-olds, 5- and 6-year-olds and 7- and 8-year-olds. Parents are not allowed to help the older children but can give a hand to the toddlers and very young children, assisting them as the kids collect the goodies.

The Englewood Public Library will play host to a public appearance by best-selling author C.J. Box on April 6.

Emergency drill ends in chocolate THINGS TO DO Tri-County Health holds practice run at ACC

TUESDAYS THROUGH MARCH 31

By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@ourcoloradonews.com Dozens of “anthrax victims” swarmed into Arapahoe Community College March 22, clamoring for a cure. Happily, M&Ms did the trick. The college was the scene of a Tri-County Health Department disaster drill, a test to see how many doses of medicine staff could dispense in an hour. Not enough volunteer “patients” turned out to get a good answer, but there was a steady stream of folks unable to resist free chocolate. In 2009, Tri-County experienced the real deal. During the “swine flu” epidemic that killed thousands of people worldwide, it set up shop at ACC and more than 60 other sites in Adams, Arapahoe and Douglas counties, handing out 64,000 vaccinations in 24 days. “This is what Tri-County Health Department is all about,” said Dr. Richard Vogt, executive director. “Our job is to be on the front lines.” But with no major local disasters since, it never hurts to stay in practice. Tri-County gets federal funds each year for emergency preparedness. “We have a bunch of dedicated individuals figuring out how to respond to the crisis at hand,” explained Dr. Richard Vogt, executive director. Eighty-three of them were on hand for the drill, filling roles such as runners, greeters and line monitors. Intake workers were prepared to handle whatever twists they faced, from what to do if someone was drunk or allergic to the medicine to how to handle a family that only spoke Nepalese. “It went without a hitch,” said Vogt. Nursing student Corey Smith spent the first day of her clinical rotation at Tri-County on the “M&M team.” “I really want to help others, so it was a good experience for me,” she said. “Totally new.”

SOUP DINNER. he Arts at Plymouth program of First Plymouth Congregational Church, Englewood, provides soup suppers at 6 p.m. Tuesdays during Lent, followed by organ concerts at 7 p.m. featuring Ken and Barbara Mervine on March 12, Ben Ehrlich on March 19, and Bryan Dunnewald on March 26.

Choir: ‘I think this concert is special’

Choir continues from Page 1

Throughout the performance, there were audio recordings and video clips of individuals talking about the importance of music in the schools. A section of seats was reserved for the Bishop choir and, on the other side of the seating area, there was a section reserved for the Clayton singers. Seats were hard to find in the fieldhouse seating area between the choirs as a large crowd of families and friends came to watch and hear the performance. Pennie Aranda sat on her walker just inside the door. “I am excited because I am here to listen to my greatgrandchildren, Navaya and Jeremiah Cimino, sing,” she said. “The great-grandchildren really love music and they were very excited about singing with the Bishop choir. I’m glad because I also loved music when I was younger.” As the start of the program neared, groups began lining up to take their places. By the door, Micah Scott said she was excited about being part of the festival. “I love music and I love to sing,” the Englewood High School student said. “When we practiced together most of the young kids seemed a little nervous because they knew we’d be singing before a large crowd. But I believe they will quickly get over the jitters and do just fine.” Scott said her favorite part in the program was the opening number, “Freedom is Coming,” a collection of songs of protest and praise from South Africa, because it is such a powerful collection of music. A short distance away, Aliah Pater said bringing so many choirs together and blending their voices is amazing. “It has been a great experience so far and I am looking forward to our performance tonight,” the Englewood Leadership Academy seventh-grader said. “I’m very excited and a little nervous right now but I know that will go away once the music starts.” At the other end of the hall, Bishop second-grader Jada Tanner said she was very excited about being part of the program. “I like music. Justin Bieber is my favorite,” she said with a smile. “All the voices sounded great at last night’s practice. I think this concert is special and I think it is a lot of fun.”

There are a total of 160 Englewood High School ninthgraders who took the test in question. The misadministered math test was given to 144 freshmen, and that means their official scores on those tests will be zero. Scores for the 16 freshmen who weren’t part of the misadministered session will be recorded and reported. The opposite is the case with the writing tests. The scores that 144 ninth-graders recorded in writing will be reported while the scores for the 16 who were in the misadministered session will be zero. “This is an unfortunate situation,” the assistant superintendent said. “We are working with the state department of education so they will provide raw test scores for those who will officially be scored zero. That is important so the students know how they did on the tests and so teachers can determine who might need additional help in those subjects.” Janelle Asmus, a spokeswoman for Colorado Department of Education, said misadministration of assessment tests doesn’t happen regularly but it does happen. “We are pleased Englewood reported the problem immediately,” she said. “The prompt reporting to the school, parents and the district is what we encourage and expect all our school and districts to do.”

don’t support banning all retail operations. If that course of action is contemplated, I suggest we put it to a vote of the people and let our residents decide whether or not the city should ban all retail operations.” There was no support for the proposal to put the issue to a vote. Jefferson’s suggestion is expected to be raised again at the next city council meeting so votes for or against it can be recorded. Olson said she thought the people voted for the right to have and use marijuana but the residents she talked to didn’t want any retail operations in the city. Jefferson disagreed and said the decision means the city is telling property owners that no aspect of the retail marijuana business will be allowed in Englewood.

303-710-3810 matt@calldenverhome.com www.CallDenverHome.com Where were you born? I was born in Saginaw, Michigan How long have you lived in the area? My family and I moved to Colorado from Ft. Myers Florida in June of 2006 What do you like most about it? I love the laid back attitude of the people in Colorado. The mountains are fantastic and weather constantly changes. However, the way people here take the time to enjoy life and spend time outdoors and with one another is a source of constant encouragement.

Orlando Florida back in 1990. In 2000, I began my real estate career at Century 21 in Fort Myers until I opened my own brokerage in 2002.

What is your specialty and what does that mean for the people you work with? I specialize in listing and selling residential homes and condominiums. A specific skill set is needed to assist seller in preparing their homes for sale and presenting them in a way that maximizes their return. What is the most challenging part of what you do? The most challenging part of real estate comes when dealing with multiple offer scenarios from both the selling and buying side of a transaction. There may be many that want the property but only one person is going to get it. The other interested parties are going to be disappointed.

Dig it!

but I get a lot of satisfaction from that.

What is one tip you have for someone looking to sell a house? Hire an agent that is familiar with the area that you live in and has a good success rate in that area – listen to their advice. What is one tip you have for someone looking to buy a house? Get all of your financial matters in order with the mortgage company prior to looking at homes. What is the most unusual thing you’ve encountered while working in Real Estate? Most recently, I showed a home with a room in the basement that had several locks on the door and fluorescent lights coming from underneath the door.

The ‘ins and outs’ of home warranties

B

uying a home is arguably one of the largest purchases a person will make. It can also be one of the most stressful. Individuals take quite a financial leap when buying a home. Even after careful consideration of funds and budgeting, it’s easy to become overextended. A home warranty can take some of the bite out of unexpected expenses. Although home buyers are urged to hire an inspector and check a property and structure from top to bottom before signing on the dotted line, a home inspector cannot foresee everything that may crop up after a person moves into a home. “When my home inspector reviewed the property he found only minor things that needed attention,” says Jeannine in New Jersey. “After Imoved in, we shortly learned that the crawl space had flooding issues that would require a lot of money to fix properly.” Home warranties can be a smart investment that take some of the financial pressure off of new

homeowners. They can also be negotiated into the sale terms of the home so that the seller is responsible for providing the warranty to the new buyer. Home warranties do not negate the need for homeowner’s insurance, but they can add protection against large monetary pay-outs to repair many items around the house. Policies may differ as to specific coverage, but most home warranties will cover major systems of the home, such as heating/ cooling, plumbing, electrical, as well as certain appliances. To decide if a warranty is the right investment, home buyers should consider the following: * Home warranties are only as good as the company backing them. Careful investigation into the trustworthiness of the warranty company and its track record should be completed. * Read the fine print of the warranty. Learn what exclusions exist, which may not make the warranty practical. * Keep in mind that the warranty company reserves the right

to determine if a repair or replacement is adequate in a claim situation. * In general, warranty companies work with their own set of contractors. This means a homeowner may not be able to hire his or her own preferred contractors to do work. * There may be a deductible or a fee charged prior to having a technician assess a repair situation. * The warranty company may require inspection of the house to be sure items are in good working order before offering a plan. * If a warranty is offered through a home seller, there may be no negotiation on the coverage or company used. Home buyers should keep in mind that there are many unforseen expenses that can arise when purchasing a new home. Having some additional protection, such as a home warranty, could mean saving money on outof-pocket repairs. ■ Metro Creative Services

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.

Celtic Tavern is best bet

Rep. Mike Coffman, left, assists Brig. Gen. James “Jim” Hall as the crowd stands to sing “God Bless America,” with former Colorado Gov. Bill Owens in the background. Hall was honored for his contributions to the aviation and parachuting community during a reception held March 24 at the Glenmoor Country Club in Cherry Hills. Photo by Deborah Grigsby

Parachute pioneer lauded Legendary jumper Hall honored with benefit for son By Deborah Grigsby

dgrigsby@ourcoloradonews.com At 86, retired Air Force Brig. Gen. James “Jim” Hall may not be suiting up for another free-fall jump, but many of the technical improvements he engineered decades ago still are. A master parachutist with more than 1,800 jumps, Hall became a legend in the field of parachuting, including helping launch the Air Force Academy’s premier parachute program. Hall, accompanied by his family, was toasted at a March 24 reception at the Glenmoor Country Club in Cherry Hills Village. Lauded by the likes of former Colorado

Gov. Bill Owens, U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman and former U.S. Rep. Bob Beauprez, more than 150 guests attended the Irish-themed event that also served as a benefit for his special-needs son, Eagle Hall, who hopes to continue to participate in the Special Olympics James Hall, who is a graduate of the both the Army Parachute School and the U.S. Forest Service Smoke Jumper School, is credited with creating the “buddy system” for free fall and the “4-line cut” for parachuting emergencies. In 1959, Hall and a partner founded the first professional parachuting firm ever. “Almost every parachute development done for the U.S. Air Force Academy in the first 30 years came from Gen. Hall,” said retired Lt. Col. John Buckley, a former combat pilot. “Brig. Gen. Hall’s developments saved lives.” Hall’s life accomplishments are the stuff from which legends are made. From conversations with Fidel Castro

and Che Guevera, to Hollywood stuntmen, Hall’s accomplishments are the stuff from which legends are born. In 1965, Hall suited up to conduct the first zero-zero ejection seat test for the F-106. The test was known as Project 90, and zero-zero refers to the fact Hall was propelled more than 400 feet in the air from an aircraft cockpit at zero feet in altitude and zero knots velocity. Hall often jokes about the event, saying he has been “kicked in the a-- harder than that.” Irish tenor Anthony Kearns performed a short repertoire of traditional Irish ditties, much to Hall’s delight. “Wow, I didn’t know I had this many friends,” said a humbled Hall. “I just want to thank each of you for being here and each of you for being my friend.” Hall retired in 1981 from the Colorado Air National Guard and was later inducted into the Colorado Aviation Hall of Fame.

The Celtic Tavern at 1801 Blake St. is in its 13th year of doing business and is ready to branch out by providing Denver’s only Off Track Betting facility. “We have changed as the business grew,” said owner Noel Hickey, “by expanding in 2004 into the space next door, opening Delaney’s cigar bar and lounge. We are now ready for the next change. On April 6, we will open the only Off Track Betting facility in the City and County of Denver. “It will add excitement in both bars. We will open at 10 a.m. every day. On May 4, Kentucky Derby day, we will be hosting one of the biggest Derby day parties seen in Colorado. With the help of our friends at the Ninth Door and Vesta Dipping Grill, the Blake Street trifecta will be the place to be.”

One Lincoln Park problems

The One Lincoln Park building that Dealin’ Doug Moreland and Tom “Lou from Littleton” Manoogian co-own is having problems again. Apparently they are replacing ALL the water pipes with copper pipes. Water is being shut off intermittently. The water issue has affected the White Crown Credit Union (yes, my credit union) this week and this will be an ongoing project for a year.

Microbrews help end poverty

Join Whole Foods Market Denver and Rocky Mountain Micro Finance Institute for a party to help end poverty around the world from 6 to 10 p.m. Saturday at the McNichols Civic Center Building at the corner of Bannock and Colfax. Taste some of Colorado’s best microbrews and spirits, including a custom limited edition of Pineapple Pale Ale from Denver Beer Co., as well as samples from other micro breweries such as Odell Brewing Co., Crazy Mountain Brewery and Parker continues on Page 19

Craft brewers spend so much time creating flavor in their brews that we just want to build on the templates they’re laying down for us.” More information at http://drafthouse.com/denver/littleton.

Tamayo adds bottomless brunch

Pizza pizza!

Tamayo, the 12-year-old Larimer Square high-end Mexican spot that recently went through a major renovation, has upped the ante on brunch. Some gal pals and I got invited to a friends and family tire-kicking try-out of brunch on Sunday, which featured a $35 all-you-can-eat and drink “bottomless Margarita bunch” for $35. But the “drink” part isn’t limited to Margaritas. Mimosas made with traditional orange juice, guave, mango or blood orange, as well as Bloody Marys and Bloody Marias are included. And, if you’re a teetotaler, the price drops to $20; $10 for children 12 and under. The menu includes sopas y ensaladas, antojitos (starters), tacos and tortas and cazuelas (baked eggs).

Englewood soccer remains unbeaten Girls best Arvada to raise season record to 5-0 By tom Munds

tmunds@ourcoloradonews.com The Englewood High School girls soccer team is off to its best start in several years as the Pirates headed into spring break with a 5-0 record, outscoring their opponents 42-2 in those five games. “This has been a great start as we win games, which helps us build momentum for the upcoming league season,” Pirates coach Bill Gilmore said before the March 21 game with Arvada. “I knew we would push the ball and play a strong offensive game, but I didn’t expect that we would be leading the state in scoring at this point in the season.” After beating Arvada 6-1, the field went dark for a week for spring break. The players return to school April 1 and the Pirates are at home against Wasson on April 2. Englewood opens play in the Colorado 7 league on April 9 against Vista Peak, and is at home against potential title contender Skyview on April 11. Home games start at 6:30 p.m. and are played in the Englewood High School Stadium. Admission is $5 for adults and $3 for students with school identification. The Pirates got things going quickly in the game against Arvada as, less than three minutes into the game, Elijah Daughtry drilled a shot into the net. The pressure didn’t slacken as Englewood kept the ball on the Arvada side of midfield most of the game. Pirates took shots frequently. Some were high and sailed over the goal, but many were on net. The Arvada goalie stopped several scoring attempts, but Englewood’s Kadie Kavinsky helped her team’s cause by scoring three goals before the end of the first half. Kavinsky added a goal and teammate Julie Kline scored for the Pirates as Englewood won the game. Kline said it has been an awesome season for her so far. “We are playing well together as a team

Photo by Tom Munds and I think that is because we are almost like a family,” the sophomore said. “Personally, I am scoring more goals this year. Last season, I only had three goals and I already have nine.” She said the scoring opportunities are a result of teamwork, and everyone has her heart in the game, with more focus and the intent to make the playoffs. “I guess I am shooting better too,” she said. “I have been working to improve my shooting, on getting over the ball and driving it into the net.” Kline said she’ll take any shot available but, if she had time to aim, she likes to

shoot for the upper corners of the net because many goalies are unable to get to that spot to try to block the ball. Daughtry is having a special season so far, as she is one of the leading scorers in the state with 17 goals. “I think part of the success I am having is because I am back on the Englewood team with some of the girls I have been playing soccer with for years,” she said “I also think I am taking more shots and I am shooting harder and more accurately.” The talented junior’s goal total has been aided by scoring six goals against Westminster and five against Fort Lupton. The coach

said it has been a lot of years since an Englewood High School girls soccer player has scored six goals in one game. Daughtry said, if she has a choice, she likes to put low, line-drive shots at the net and, when she gets control of the ball, she likes to use her speed to get in close before taking the shot. However, she said, if she is open, she will take the long shot. She is an athlete who plays basketball but said soccer is her favorite sport. She said her personal goal for the season is to do all she can to help her team win, get to the playoffs and do well, plus she would like to be selected as first-team all-conference.

Pirates baseball team off to strong start Englewood ups record to 5-1-1 on Tyler Harris’ walk-off homer By tom Munds

Junior Tyler Harris created a long-lasting memory March 20 as he blasted a walkoff home run well over the 340-foot mark to give Englewood High School’s baseball team the 5-4 victory for the team’s fifth win of the season. The Pirates have little time to enjoy the win as they were scheduled to be on the field again March 22 against Arvada, weather permitting. Whether the weather permitted the Englewood-Arvada game or not, the team was heading into a week off for spring break. School resumes April 1 and the baseball team resumes play the same day, as they will travel to Manual High School for a 4

p.m. game. They return home April 3 for an important league game against Elizabeth, and April 5 they will play a rematch with the Cardinals on their home diamond. Elizabeth came into the week with a 1-1 record, but plans were to play several games during the last week of March, when they journey to an invitational tournament in Arizona. Englewood’s April 3 home game begins at 4:30 p.m. and will be played on Harry Wise Field, north of the high school in the Hosanna Sports Complex. Pirate coach Mike Rowe said he was happy with the fact the team is 5-1-1 and is off to the best start in several years. “I think the difference is we have 12 guys who come to the field every day ready to play baseball,” he said before the March 20 Fort Lupton game. “We have been playing well. We are hitting the ball hard, our field is vastly improved over last year’s and our Baseball continues on Page 21

pitching has been strong.” He said he credits much of the improved pitching to the adoption of focus on pitching to contact. “We stress to our pitchers that, instead of trying to paint the corners and strike out the batter, the focus should be delivering the ball in the strike zone and, if the guy gets a bat on the ball, then we need to play good defense,” the coach said. “I tell the guys that pounding the strike zone is the goal because even the best guys with the bat only get a base hit three of 10 trips to the plate.” He said it also helps that the Pirates have a deep roster. He said Englewood took the field against Fort Lupton without two starters and with three or four guys playing despite minor injuries. “That could have been a problem except for the fact we have good players on the bench so, when we substitute, there is no drop in the caliber of play,” Rowe said. Englewood came into the March 20 game with decisive wins in four of their last five games. It proved to be a class between two evenly matched team and turned into a see-saw battle. Englewood scored first, then Fort Lupton went ahead 3-1. The Pirates came back to score runs and the score was tied 4-4 in the bottom of the fifth. Englewood kept Fort Logan from scoring, but the Pirates had men in scoring position in the fifth inning, then loaded the bases with no outs in the sixth but didn’t score. The game was tied 4-4 in the bottom of the seventh inning and the first two Pirates batters were retired in order. That sent Tyler Harris to the plate. The count was 2-2 when

Harris got a fastball down the middle of the plate and drove it well over the left field fence for a walk-off home run that gave the Pirates the 5-4 win. “I wanted to make contact and I was looking for a curve ball because he threw me a curve and struck me out my last time to bat,” Harris said after the game. “The pitch was right down the middle of the plate and I swung the bat hard.” He said he hardly felt the contact and it was almost like taking a practice swing. “I knew I really hit the ball hard when I looked up to see it was a high, long drive,” he said with a smile. “For a split second, I thought it might not make the fence, but then I was sure it would clear the fence and be way out of the park. I’ve hit other homers but this may be the longest home run I have ever hit.” The ball cleared the fence above the 340foot sign and the coaches estimate it probably was a 370- or maybe even a 390-foot drive. Englewood sent Brayden Newkirk to the mound against Fort Lupton and the senior went the distance. “I felt good out there on the mound,” Newkirk said after the game. “I did have some trouble getting my fastball in the strike zone but my curve was working real well. My curve breaks from outside to the inside and is my best pitch.” Newkirk struck out five and only gave up two hits. He said he throws well and is working to develop a split-finger fastball, which should be another strong pitch for him. The senior plays shortstop when he isn’t on the mound. He said he likes playing shortstop best because it is fun to be in on all the action that goes on in the infield.
