Water plan awaits comment Conservation blueprint ready for public input By Tom Munds Englewood completed development of a water-conservation plan and awaits public comment on the plan before it is submitted

to the state. The plan will be available for review May 1 on the city’s website at Starting May 1, comments on the plan can be made through the website, which will be listed under the “In the Spotlight” portion of the home page. Residents also can make comments in person by attending one or both of the meetings of the Englewood Water and Sew-

er Board that will be held at 5 p.m. May 14 or at 5 p.m. June 11 in the community development conference room. The conference room is on the third floor of the Englewood Civic Center, 1000 Englewood Parkway. The deadline for public comment is July 1. The main objective of a water-conservation plan is to improve water-use efficiency, which, in turn, reduces overall water de-

mands. Englewood developed a water-conservation plan in the mid-1990s. A new plan was needed following the state decision four years ago to revise water conservation requirements. The city’s draft plan was created by staff members and conservation consultants hired using a state grant. Those working on Water continues on Page 9

Home values show decline in Arapahoe Assessor notes that figures aren’t tied to current sales By Jennifer Smith

Once a month, volunteers from Englewood Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 322 spend four or five hours handing out free coffee to visitors and staff at the Veterans Affaird Medical Center in Denver. A trio of volunteers, Lyle Carter, Phil Phillips and Ruby Clark, staffed the booth on April 19. “It is so nice to have the coffee booth here,” said Mike Latrell, who was wounded in Iraq. “It’s usually a fair wait to see my doctor, so the coffee is sort of a pick-me-up for me. Bless them for being here and I really appreciate the smiles, a little conversation and, of course, a free cup of coffee.” Latrell was among a steady parade of visitors to the booth that kept the volunteers busy filling orders for coffee black or with a specific number of cream and sugar packets, a cup of hot chocolate and even a request for a cup of mocha. “The coffee booth is a statewide Veterans of Foreign Wars project. There is an effort to have volunteers here every Monday through Friday,” Carter said. “I guess other posts are like us when it comes to difficulty recruiting volunteers, because some days the booth isn’t staffed.” Phillips said he thinks the VFW has staffed a coffee booth at the Denver VA hospital since about 1975. Carter has been among the volunteers for 25 years or more.

“The recovery has not happened yet in Arapahoe County.” That’s the news Corbin Sakdol, Arapahoe County assessor, gave officials from throughout the 348 taxing entities in the county on April 18. Having just finished reassessing property values, he has a pretty good handle on the situation. Although sales are up in most places, values of the 150,000 single-family homes in the county are generally down but with a few bright spots. Centennial and Greenwood Village are up. Aurora, Sheridan and Englewood are down, and Littleton is split. “Ridge Road is still quite Sakdol the dividing line,” he said. Homes south of Ridge Road are mostly maintaining or climbing, while the north isn’t in such great shape. Sakdol says condominium values are way down across the board, but office buildings and commercial properties are up. Foreclosures are down from the peak in 2008. “It’s happening, but it’s not near as bad,” he said. “Things are much better, but they’re still not good.” One reason there’s discrepancy between rising sales and falling values is that Colorado law requires Sakdol to use 2-year-old sales data to determine current taxable value. The tax bill property owners will be getting in the mail starting May 1 reflects sales that occurred between July 1, 2010, and June 30, 2012. So as home prices started crashing during the housing bubble of August 2008, property taxes reflected July 1, 2006 to June 30, 2007. Conversely, as sales are now beginning to increase, taxable values remain low. Those 348 taxing entities can significantly impact property owners’ tax bills, as well. Similar homes in similar neighborhoods might be valued about the same and still have vastly different property-tax bills. It depends on voter-approved mill levies collected by the school district or water entity, for example. Sakdol also points out that, in Colorado, commercial properties are taxed at a rate of 29 percent, while it’s just under 8 percent for residential. (Keep that in mind when considering converting a cute bungalow to a charming coffee shop, he notes.) The Gallagher Amendment intended to maintain a 55/45 split between commercial and residential property taxes, so it ratcheted down

Martin Plastics site changing hands New developer going forward with apartment plans By Tom Munds Littleton Capital Partners, which had planned to develop apartments at the old Martin Plastics site, is selling the property to Las Vegas-based Fore Property Co. The new owner pledges to follow through with plans for an apartment complex on the site at West Oxford Avenue and South Windermere Street, and Englewood City Council has agreed to shift a redevelopment assistance agreement from Littleton Capital Partners to Fore Property. Representatives of both companies explained the sale to the Englewood City Council at the April 15 meeting, and the council approved a resolution needed to extend the redevelopment assistance agreement to the new owner. Darren Hollingsworth, city economic development manager, told the council the approved planned-unit-development zoning followed the property, but the city council must approve extending the development assistance to the new owner. The council-approved incentives include: Rebating use taxes not to exceed $260,000 or 55 percent of the building use

The metal Martin Plastics buildings are scheduled to be removed soon so a developer can construct an apartment complex on the property. The city has approved development incentives for the project.

mote the project development,” Hollingsworth said. “When the project is completed, the city will receive an estimated $213,880 in property taxes over the first 10 years. Also, even with the incentives, it is estimated the city will still receive about $300,000 in revenues from use taxes, permit fees and fees in lieu of parks.” He added it is expected the new residents also will shop and do business in Englewood, thus increasing the city sales tax revenues. Jonathan Bush, managing partner of Littleton Capital Partners, said the company was exploring financing and equity

partners for the project when they met with Fore Property. “The Fore Property officials liked the project and, since they develop their own projects, offered to buy the site and move forward with constructing the apartment complex,” Bush said. “We appreciate all the cooperation we received from Englewood city officials and we hope to be able locate a site for a project in the community. We also are excited about the quality development Fore Property Co. can create in Englewood.” Fore Property representative Lee Novak said the firm is excited about the project. “We look forward to working with city officials as we move forward with the project,” the vice president for western regional development said. “We currently are constructing a similar project at Mississippi and Broadway. It also will be 240 to 260 apartments.” He said work has to be done to complete the sale, and the best preliminary estimate is that work on the project should begin in late summer or early fall. The council then discussed the request to extend the development incentives to the new property owner. Councilmember Joe Jefferson said he would vote for the proposal even though he doesn’t favor the council exceeding the policy of rebating 50 percent of use taxes and waiving half the payment in lieu of parks fees. However, Mayor Randy Penn said the city benefits from the rebate of 50 percent of the parks fees because this will be the first time the city has ever collected any fees in lieu of parks. After the discussion, the council voted unanimously to approve extending the development assistance agreement to the new owner of the Martin Plastics site.

the own move ment ll the wood ate a also ment ood.” ovak By Melinda Myers ct. Special to Colorado Community city Media projonal con- The extreme heat and drought sippiof 2012 was hard on lawns and 260gardens. “Many gardeners are facing a blank slate of bare soil, pletemasses of dead patches that were mateonce lawn or a bit of grass interin inspersed in a sea of weeds,” says gardening expert Melinda Myers. quest Myers recommends following es tothese steps to improve lawns this season. d he Start this spring to renovate gh heor improve your weather-worn pol-lawn. Remember that water is andcritical to get newly seeded and parkssodded lawns to survive. So be prepared to help nature along d thewith the recovery effort. rcent Evaluate the damage. Then e the use the checklist below to find y fees the best course of action to aid otedthe ailing lawn. the If the lawn is more than 60 o thepercent weeds or bare soil, it’s probably time to start over. Use this opportunity to create a great foundation for growing a healthy lawn. Kill off the existing vegetation, add several inches of organic matter such as compost or peat moss and a low nitrogen slow release fertilizer into the top six

Renew, renovate for perfect lawn to eight inches of soil, and rake smooth. Select more drought tolerant grasses like rhizomatous (turftype) tall fescues, buffalo grass, and Habiturf native lawn mix. Make sure the grass is suited to the climate and plant according to the label. Then sow the seeds, lightly rake and mulch or lay sod. Water often enough to keep the soil moist until the seeds sprout or the sod roots into the soil below. Then water thoroughly when the top few inches of soil are crumbly, but slightly moist to encourage deep roots. Fertilize new, existing and stressed lawns with a low-nitrogen slow-release fertilizer like Milorganite. It won’t harm stressed lawns, young seedlings or newly laid sod. It will encourage slow steady growth. Southern lawns can be fertilized in April and again in early June. In the north fertilize around Memorial Day. And if 2013 turns into another hot dry summer, it won’t burn the lawn. Mow high to encourage deeply rooted grass that is more drought-tolerant and pest-resistant. And mow often, removing only a third of the total height. Be sure to leave these short clip-

pings on the lawn. They return moisture, nutrients, and organic matter to the soil. Repair small dead and bare patches as needed. Use a lawn patch kit, grass seed and mulch. For small spots, loosen the soil surface, sprinkle grass seed and lightly rake. Or mix a handful of grass seed in a bucket of topsoil. Sprinkle the mix over the soil surface. Do a bit more soil preparation when renovating larger dead areas in the lawn. Remove or kill any weeds that have filled in these areas. Till two inches of compost, peat moss or other organic matter into the top six inches of soil. Sow seed, rake and mulch or lay sod. Overseed thin and sparse lawns. First, core aerate the lawn to improve soil conditions and increase seed-to-soil contact. Spread grass seed over the aerated lawn and water as needed. Or rent a slit seeder or hire a professional with this type of equipment. These machines slice through the soil and drop the grass seed in place, increasing the seed-to-soil contact that is needed for good germination. Core aerate lawns that have more than a half-inch of thatch, those growing in compacted

Courtesy photo soils, or before overseeding. By removing plugs of soil you break through the thatch and create channels for water and fertilizer to reach the grass roots. Spot treat weeds on lawns that need minimal repair. Wait at least until fall to treat new and overseeded lawns. Spot treating minimizes the use of chemicals and reduces the stress on already stressed lawns. As always, read and follow label directions carefully. Proper maintenance and a bit of cooperation from nature will help transform a lawn from an eyesore to an asset in the landscape.

By StatePoint Selling a home can be challenging. The good news is there are a few tweaks that can give homeowners a serious leg up on the competition. With the warmer months being the most active time of year to buy and sell real estate, it’s important to ensure your home is seen in the best light possible. “Despite the influx of homes for sale this season, the process of buying and selling a home can be simple, efficient and enjoyable,” says Wendy Froehlich of Homes. com, one of the nation’s top online real estate listing and lifestyle resources. According to, the top five projects that improve home equity are: Bathrooms If adding an additional bathroom isn’t an option, upgrade existing ones. Adding a dual vanity to a master or secondary bath improves functionality, allowing multiple people to use the space. Change out fi xtures like faucets and shower doors to increase aesthetic appeal. If you’re on a budget, replace light fi xtures or switch plates to help refresh the space. When working with a small space, highlight storage options with shelving and update or remove wall decor, paint or wallpaper. Outdoor spaces Curb appeal adds immediate interest to any home’s exterior. According to Remodeling Magazine, improving outdoor spaces can increase a home’s resale value dollarfor-dollar. Frame the front walkway with items that add visual interest, like flowers, potted plants, large rocks of various sizes and solar-powered lights. If yard space is scarce, hanging plants are another great, low-cost option. Extend outdoor projects to the back-

yard — power-wash decks or patios and clean screened-in areas. Kitchen Kitchen renovations can cost anywhere from $20,000 to $40,000 and more. If that’s not in your budget, upgrading cabinetry and paint does wonders to liven up even the most outdated spaces. Add crown or decorative molding to “shape out” the kitchen cabinets and modernize the space. Repaint cabinets, or add new hardware to add visual interest and brighten dark spaces. Basement Basement improvements can optimize livable space and protect the home from extreme weather, mold, moisture damage and mites. Whether transitioning the basement to a home gym, office or family room, the basics remain the same: insulate well and waterproof. Maximize space by including shelving and storage units. If possible, make the space feel open and inviting by creating an open stairwell, a trick that visually connects the upper part of the house with the lower, and filters natural light into the space. Mudroom Mudrooms ensure families stay clutterfree and have a dedicated space to drop stuff as they come through the door. They can also make potential homeowners feel welcome upon entry. While knocking out a wall to create a mudroom is expensive and labor-intensive, you can make a “drop zone” by simply anchoring a bench to an empty wall and hanging labeled storage units. Making homes stand out in a sea of real estate listings isn’t always easy. More tips on increasing home values can be found at

Tentative plans call for construction of a seven-story tower with two 2,700-squarefoot, three-bedroom top-level penthouse suites with wrap-around balconies. There will also be a four-story building along with 600 stalls of sub-ground and first-level parking. It is expected to take about a year to complete the project. Kevin Foltz of Forum Real Estate Group said in a press release that the apartments should be among the finest anywhere in Denver, providing the residents a “resortlike” lifestyle. Planned amenities include an outdoor swimming pool, two outdoor spas, rooftop lounges and a 24-hour on-site concierge service. There will be electronically controlled access to apartments that have nine- to 12-foot ceilings and hardwoodstyle floors. The 300-apartment complex is scheduled to include about 150 one-bedroom units, 120 two-bedroom units and 30 threebedroom units Work on the project is scheduled to be done from 6:30 a.m. until 7 p.m., six days a week.

City OKs incentive changes for builder Tax rebate will apply at site of closed middle school By Tom Munds Developers who plan to turn the Flood Middle School site into an apartment complex called Hampden Broadway will receive a rebate of use taxes from the city to help pay the cost of moving the city ditch. Englewood City Council voted 6-1 on April 15 to approve changes to the development assistance agreement for the project. The changes were wording that provided a use tax rebate of $170,000 instead of a rebate of the lower cost of moving the city ditch box culvert. Councilmember Joe Jefferson said he voted against the issue because he felt the rebate should be the actual cost of moving the ditch and not the $170,000.

Yes votes for the changes to the incentives were cast by Mayor Randy Penn, Mayor Pro Tem Jim Woodward and Councilmembers Jill Wilson, Bob McCaslin, Linda Olson and Rick Gillit. With the changes to the agreement, the developer will not just receive a rebate for the cost of relocating the box culvert, but will receive the entire $170,000 rebate of use tax revenues. Once the cost of moving the box culvert is covered, any money remaining from the $170,000 will be used for other public improvements. The relocation is necessary to clear the easement for the box culvert, because buildings can’t be constructed over utility easements and plans are for the original easement to be covered by a portion of the apartment complex. The development is a $38 million project. Darren Hollingsworth, city economic development manager, said the city is expected to receive a total of about $500,000 from building use tax

on the project. He added that no property tax was paid on the site while it belonged to the school district. However, the estimated city property tax will be about $11,000 a year on the project that will contain 310 apartments and will be home to about 500 people. The project design is for two buildings, one on the Flood site and one on the adjacent ball field. The concept is to design the buildings so all tenant parking is on the site. Originally, the plan was for 350 apartments, but the developer agreed with the Planning and Zoning Commission recommendation and reduced the maximum number of apartments to 310. The plans include a number of amenities, including a pool, landscaped courtyards, a fitness center, a cyber cafe and a bicycle shop. Demolition of the Flood building is expected to begin in the next month or so, with construction of the apartments likely to take about 18 months.

Stoned-driving limit stumbles Bill killed, but Republican plans to try amendment By Vic Vela A Senate panel on April 22 killed legislation that attempted to set a blood standard for being too stoned to drive. But lawmakers may still have an opportunity to put a driving-stoned limit on the books this legislative session. House M i n o r ity Leader Mark Waller, RColorado Report Springs, told Colorado Community Media that the House will still try to get a standard through that deals with driving while under the influence of marijuana. That effort will come in the form of an amendment to one of the bills dealing with the regulation of Amendment 64. “It will fit into one of those bills,” Waller said. “The best way to do it would have been through legislation.” But that route is not possible now, after the Senate Judiciary Committee


voted 4-1 against moving House Bill 1114 forward, a bill that Waller sponsored in the House. The bill would have limited drivers to five nanograms per milliliter of blood for THC, marijuana’s psychoactive ingredient. But committee members expressed a number of concerns, such as that the law might unfairly affect medical marijuana patients and whether the standard would lead to police enforcement issues over blood sampling. “I take it very seriously for people to drive impaired,” said Sen. Kevin Lundberg, R-Berthoud, who voted against the bill. “I also take it very seriously for the government to prosecute people who aren’t impaired.” Sen. Steve King, R-Grand Junction, the bill’s senate sponsor, was the only committee member to vote for the legislation. The bill had momentum going into the committee hearing. For starters, this year’s bill would have set a less stricter stoned-driving standard than in year’s past. And it breezed through the House on a 57-6 vote. “We didn’t see this coming at all,” Waller said of the bill’s demise in committee. “After talking with Senate leadership, I was under the impression it would pass.” The House minority leader said he was “incredibly disappointed” that the legislation did not pass, especially

since the bill had been “watered-down in such a way to make it more palatable for everyone involved.” Now the plan is for the stoned-driving standard to be included in one of the omnibus bills that deal the regulation of Amendment 64 — the voterapproved measure that legalizes recreational marijuana use in Colorado. The legislature must pass Amendment 64 regulations this session, or it will be up to the Department of Revenue to put its own rules in place. Waller said the Amendment 64 Task Force would have dealt with this issue originally, but it was determined that the standard was better dealt with through its own legislation. The first committee hearing dealing with one of the Amendment 64 bills is scheduled for April 24. Waller did not know which bill the stoneddriving amendment would be tacked on to, but said that it wouldn’t be difficult for it to be worked on in a day, in time for that hearing. Waller also said that if an amendment does get through the House, and that if it is somehow stripped during the legislative process, that he “is confident that a senator would be willing to bring (an amendment to the bill in that chamber).” If a stoned-driving standard does not prevail through an amendment, it would mark the fourth time that an effort of its kind has failed in the General Assembly.

If Colorado wants a place in the growing global economy, then its education system must deliver the skills needed for students to succeed as 21st-century citizens.

Photo by Deborah Grigsby winning curriculum — a curriculum that’s rich in technology, collaboration, creativity and shared economic success. “It’s not about bricks and mortar,” said Flor. “It’s about what experiences are children getting — starting in kindergarten all the way through — that prepare them to be engineers, or whatever it is they want to be.” Panel moderator Lisa D’Ambrosia said education has long been one of the chamber’s prime initiatives. She sees a strong connection between academia and the coming economy. Schools are now looking to the business community and asking it to help define what the future workforce should look like. So, what it is kids need to know to be successful in their lifetime? “We can’t even predict all the jobs that will exist when they

graduate, but we can predict the kind of skills they’ll need to be successful, no matter what those jobs are,” said Fagen. And the Douglas County School District has been reaching out to some of the biggest names on the planet. “Nike, for example, wants people who `obliterate’ boundaries, are risk-takers, are smart, passionate curious people, rebels, original thinking,” Fagen said. “So just as the industrial revolution paid attention to what it was the assembly-line mode needed, we want to pay attention to what our business partners want in our students.” “We have a vested interest in education with relationship to the business community,” D’Ambrosia said. “It’s one of the driving forces for bringing jobs here to the south metro Denver area.”

Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson took advantage of a meeting of the Western Arapahoe Republican Forum on April 20 to clarify his stance on gun control, which he feels was misrepresented after he released an open letter on the subject. “We will not enforce the background check and the high-capacity magazine ban proactively. … But I won’t tell you that I am not going to enforce these laws,” Robinson he told the group, referring to recently passed state laws. His position that law-enforcement officers don’t write the law but swear an oath to uphold it was taken by some to mean he was soft on the Second Amendment. “Public safety professionals serving in the executive branch do not have the constitutional authority, responsibility and, in most cases, the credentials to determine the constitutionality of any issue,” Robinson wrote. If law-enforcement officers stopped enforcing laws they don’t

like, it could set a dangerous precedent if juries followed suit, he said. “Rhetoric can impact the criminal-justice system,” he said. Robinson will address what he feels are problems with the new laws through lobbying and legal means, and he announced April 22 that he will sign on to a lawsuit initiated by a group of sheriffs to get the laws overturned. He also plans to help write a bill for next year that would clarify the new laws. “To a degree, I support background checks for private sales,” he said, but he believes the new Colorado law goes too far by requiring them for transfers among family members. As far as the ban on highcapacity magazines, he thinks it will be impossible to enforce. “No one goes to jail unless you get to probable cause,” he said. Robinson addressed what he feels are real problems: mentalhealth issues, gang violence and street-crime violence. “I think we’re doing something really wrong,” he said. “We’re not dealing with the issues we can make a difference about.” He adds violent media to the list, as well, saying it desensitizes kids and blunts the consequences of violence. “They simply go back and hit the reset button and start all over again,” he said. “But the First Amendment applies to everyone, even those worshipping the almighty dollar to put forth death and destruction.”

opinions / yours and ours

Keep jobs at home, businesses at ease The Keep Jobs in Colorado Act appears to have considerable support as it passed the House Monday at the Statehouse. We appreciate suggested improvements touted by the act, House Bill 1292, co-sponsored by state Sen. Andy Kerr, D-Lakewood, but give pause to some of its measures long-term. We agree with Kerr that changes are needed in penalties for companies that do not meet a threshold of requiring 80 percent of all taxpayer-backed state project labor be conducted by Colorado workers. Kerr noted the 80 percent requirement has been on the books since 1933 but a jail penalty for non-complying company owners has not been enforced. We agree virtually every law should have teeth, so it makes sense to amend the law by replacing jail time with civil fees for violations and retooling the compliance process. The Keep Jobs in Colorado Act also aims

our view

to: • Clamp down on outsourcing of jobs overseas in state contracts with beefed up disclosures on state contractors who use second-party vendors; • Provide stricter enforcement of out-ofstate bid preferences to make sure Colorado companies have all legal advantages available; • Expand the so-called “best value” metrics related to in-state employment and domestically produced materials for contracts that are not co-mingled with federal funds;

question of the week

What are you looking forward to this summer? With Memorial Day only a month away, we asked people at a Highlands Ranch coffee

shop what they are looking forward to the most this summer.

“Selling houses, helping people meet their fitness goals, warmer weather. This (cold weather) is ridiculous.” — Leslie Rogers Peckham, Highlands Ranch

“Having cookouts at the park. And the warmer weather.” — Becky Nazzaro, Lone Tree

“Getting outside to do a lot of my workouts. I run the steps at Red Rocks a lot and I love it. I’m also looking forward to opening my pool.” — Brian Peters, Highlands Ranch

“Swimming in Brian Peters’ pool. And outdoor volleyball. I love everything about summer. I travel a lot, so whenever I come back to Colorado I just feel the air and say ‘aaahhh.’“ — Brian Richter, Highlands Ranch

Wanting to watch a train wreck If Madame Defarge were living in the southwest United States today, where would she be and what would she be doing? Be specific. I want the name of the city and the building, and exactly what she was doing with her hands. Here is a big hint: The last time we saw Madame Defarge she was a tricoteuse. That practically gives it away. Think it over. Some of us like to polka. Some of us like to bowl, shop for shoes, or breed cockatiels. And some of us like to knit. Madame Defarge liked to knit. There’s the giveaway. Madame Defarge would be knitting in the Maricopa County Superior Court Building in Phoenix, and attending the death penalty trial in the case of Arizona vs. Jodi Arias. Defarge was considered the main villain of Charles Dickens’ “A Tale of Two Cities.” As a tricoteuse, or knitting woman, she secretly encoded the names of people to be killed during the French Revolution. I thought of Defarge when I heard that a woman drove six hours just to see the trial. Why? To see a melodrama in person? To be on television? Or maybe to see someone sentenced to death? I can understand why someone might have a peripheral interest in a case like this one, or the Trials of the Century that have preceded it. Leopold and Loeb. Bruno Hauptmann. The Rosenbergs. O.J. And more recently, Casey Anthony. I catch up on these cases, but not hour after hour. There’s a channel that is covering the Arias trial all day long. One Arias juror was dismissed, and she came back to sit in the courtroom. The Hauptmann trial was a pip. A circus, really. Hauptmann was accused, convicted, and executed for kidnapping and murdering Charles Lindbergh’s 20-monthold son. People mobbed the courtroom. Some climbed in through windows. Maybe none of us wants to be in a train wreck, but apparently a lot of us want to see one. I don’t get it. And if I had to

listen to the prosecuting attorney in the Arias case for more than a minute or two at a time, I think I might want to get into Thelma and Louise’s back seat just before they went to the worm restaurant. The closing defense argument in the case of Leopold and Loeb might have been worth hearing in person. Clarence Darrow said, about Loeb, “This terrible crime was inherent in his organism, and it came from some ancestor. Is any blame attached because somebody took Nietzsche’s philosophy seriously and fashioned his life upon it? It is hardly fair to hang a 19-year-old boy for the philosophy that was taught him at the university.” I am sure that Darrow had a rough idea beforehand what he was going to say, but I doubt that he read that from a script. To be able to speak with such clarity on the spot would have made a big impression upon me. It worked on the judge too. He spared the lives of Leopold and Loeb. The case from start to finish makes the Arias trial look like an afternoon soap. Sooner or later we all get called to jury duty. I was. There was a very well-made video we had to watch first, that tried to soften the major life interruption we were about to experience. I am guessing that some people would pay to sit on a death penalty case jury. Craig Marshall Smith is an artist, educator and Highlands Ranch resident.

• Create a central tracking system for state projects — in practice tracking the most costly materials in public works projects, such as items made from iron, steel and related manufactured goods. In light of these values, we recognize the arguments of some Republicans and others that it can be a difficult process ensuring that projects involve Coloradobased materials. In one of our stories earlier this month, Rep. Ray Scott, R-Grand Junction, stated flatly there is “no way in this free market system that everyone is going to be truthful.” Sad but true. Further we acknowledge it is highly problematic for contractors to know and document the sources of all materials. As for tracking payroll, that is not as much of a challenge, but more paperwork means increasing staff time and cost for contractors.

Overall, the act’s key measures can in some ways strengthen the state in the current challenging economic climate. The measures match the times, although it’s surely dicey work because making laws to regulate business — whether it’s incentives or tariffs or common taxes, and so on — will always be complicated and questionable to free market purists. For now, we support the general ideas, but long-term, we harbor reservations because the effort to stay local and secure jobs works against the pressing global marketplace and its competitive realities of comparative advantage — when one country can produce products or provide labor more efficiently than another. Given that the state employment rate decreased from about 8.2 percent a year ago to 7.1 percent last month, we’d like to see Colorado in a trend to entertain fewer laws that mean increased government protocols and processes for business.

Hospitals are grounds for hope Over the past 17-plus years I have either been treated personally at local hospitals or have had family members and friends end up in the clinic, emergency room or hospital. And, over these past 17 years, I have talked to members of our community and many of you about our experiences at the different hospitals. Many of you have even sent me an email over the past few years sharing your experiences. Based on my experiences with family and friends and all of the unsolicited feedback I have received, I am happy to report that the teams at our local hospitals are doing an incredible job in caring for patients. We have been truly blessed with some of the most talented, caring, and compassionate doctors, nurses, technicians and support staff in health care. Even the volunteers at our hospitals seem to go out of their way to make sure patients and family are taken care of. Having had to deal with a very significant health-care issue in my life recently, unfortunately I have found myself spending more and more time in hospitals, doctor’s offices and clinics as the primary caregiver for my wife. I am reminded each day and during each visit just how hard our health-care professionals work and how their amazing gifts of caring and compassion are tested multiple times per day. As I watch everyone from the EMTs bringing patients in, or the staff caring for the patient, I am in awe of their sincerity, love and technical ability. Conversely, just as in any service-oriented business, I see the patients or family members of the patients become disruptive, abusive, belligerent and impatient as they bark out demands and treat their potential caregivers with complete disregard

for the genuine effort of care being given. These same patients and family members do not understand how others observe their behavior and how damaging it is for the health and well-being of the patients who are there to get better. Not to mention how it impacts the morale of the clinic, the staff, or the other patients and families. If we are to have hope for health care, I would ask that instead of pointing the finger of blame at how “broken” health care is, that we begin by building a winning and positive relationship with the people who are immediately in front of us, our nurses, doctors, technicians and support staff. Kudos to these hospitals for being such a great place for all of those who find themselves needing care. They are wonderful institutions with amazing patients and families from our community and incredible staff and leadership, working together and providing hope for healthcare. I know some will have their stories of success and others will share their challenges, I would love to hear both at, and when we work collectively with our health-care providers it is always a better than good week.

the draft also considered input from members of Englewood’s Water and Sewer Board. The result was a draft developed in accordance with the Water Conservation Act of 2004. Once the plan is approved by the state, Englewood is qualified for loans, grants and other forms of financial assistance for water and water-supply delivery projects from the Colorado Water Conservation Board and the Colorado Water Resources and Power Development Authority. “Those drafting the plan included consideration of at the Colorado Water Conservation Board’s list of about 50 conservation measures. The state board urges communities developing water conservation plans to select the measures in the list that are appropriate for that community,” said Yasser Abouaish, Englewood utilities engineer.

“Things have changed a lot since I started coming to the VA hospital,” the Englewood resident said. “When I started, all the staff was male with the exception of a few nurses. Now, there seems to be as many women as men on the staff. Back when I started, most of the vets were older and almost all of them were men. Now, we see a lot of younger vets and there are a lot of women who come to the VA hospital.” The volunteers pass out 500 to 600 cups of coffee and chocolate in their five-hour shift.

Sherry Forsyth was one of their visitors on April 19. “I appreciate the VFW staffing

what homeowners were paying as the economy worsened. However, TABOR says

“The group drafting Englewood’s plan selected about 15 measures for our community.” He said the measures selected for Englewood focus on three main areas — expediting the installation of water meters, an aggressive public education program about water conservation and a system to minimize leaks. “The draft, if approved by the state, will be a 10-year plan,” Abouaish said. “The plan will be reviewed once a year to see if the measures are moving toward the ultimate goal, which is a 10 percent reduction in water use over the 10-year period.” When approved by the state, the plan will also be used to guide effective and responsible use of water resources during periods of drought. Englewood’s water system isn’t expected to have to use drought management plans because the city has diversified water rights providing water supply with a high degree of reliability.

the booth,” she said with a smile. “I live in Monument and it is a long ride. The coffee is a nice break after the ride and helps pick me up a bit.” Clark said she thinks the veterans like a cheery greeting as much as the coffee. “Being here is fun and I am glad I can do it,” she said. “I try to smile and say something nice as I make the coffee for the vets. My goal is to get each veteran to smile, because a smile is the wages for the volunteers.” Carter is a Marine veteran. He took time to greet fellow Marine Robert Sanders, and they talked about shared experiences in Korea. “It’s nice to be greeted and it’s nice to get a cup of coffee at the right price, free,” Sanders said. “After all, what is a Marine without coffee?” it can’t go back up without a vote of the people, so it remains skewed. Sakdol reminds property owners they only have until the end of May to appeal their tax bill, and urges them not to pay anybody to do it for them. “We’re really easy to get along with,” he said. “Come and talk to us for free.”

Time your move right to save money B

uying a new home is the most expensive purchase a person is likely to make in his or her lifetime. It also can be one of the more stressful. The Employee Relocation Council states that moving is the third most stressful event in life, following death and divorce. But a well-timed move can reduce stress and save money. Moving during certain times of the year can result in considerable savings. Moving during the summer, when children are out of school and the weather is nice, can make a move more manageable. Keep in mind that because late spring and summer are the peak moving seasons, they also tend to be more expensive. Many moving companies and truck rental agencies will charge a premium if you use their services during the summer. Furthermore, crews may change in the summer when students on vacation could fill in for regular, more experienced movers.

High prices are not only reserved for those who buy a new house during the spring and summer. Renters may find spring and summer is also the peak season for rentals. Many apartment managers can attest that the dates between June 2 and August 30 are quite busy in terms of apartment turnover. College students are more likely to move as soon as the academic year ends, and many landlords plan leases to expire in the summer months to ensure that re-renting places will be easier thanks to a flooded apartment market. According to Apartment Wiz, a Houston-based apartment locating service, although there might be greater apartment availability during the warm-weather months, it also means greater competition between prospective tenants. That greater competition can drive up prices. But apartments are harder to fill in the fall or at the onset of winter. That’s because

many people do not want the hassle of moving once school has started or the weather has chilled. Landlords who are stuck paying utilities and advertising fees for vacant apartments are far more likely to negotiate rent prices, lease terms and even security deposits during the winter in an effort to fill the apartment quickly. People sitting with homes on the market are also more likely to negotiate during cooler months when foot traffic has fizzled out. That can make shopping for a home in the fall advantageous to home buyers. Here are some other tips to reduce stress and save money when moving into a new home or apartment. • Move mid-week. Weekends are a prime time for truck rentals and moving companies. Pick a Tuesday or a Wednesday to move, and you’re much more likely to find an available moving service (even during peak mov-

ing months); you may even be able to negotiate a lower rate. • Pick a mid-month moving date. Many people move at the beginning of the month when leases are up or after mortgage payments are made. Fewer people move in the middle of the month, so you might find more affordable moving deals if you can wait a few extra weeks. • Schedule a fall or winter move. The American Moving and Storage Association says half of all moves occur during one-third of the year -- between the beginning of May and Labor Day. Beat the rush by moving outside of these dates. • Get an early start. Many people underestimate the amount of time it takes to actually move their belongings. Try to schedule a moving company to come very early in the morning to give you ample time to pack up the truck and unpack at your new home. ■ Metro Creative Services

Open house introduces bike program Arapahoe nonprofit similar to operations in Denver, Boulder By Tom Munds The April 22 display of the B-cycle program drew quite a few people before Mother Nature put a damper on the scene with a cold temperatures and snow. The event was organized by Joel Phillips, who is executive director of Arapahoe County B-cycles, the organization seeking to bring the share-a-bike program to Englewood and other communities. He said quite a few people stopped by and took test rides on the bikes during the nice weather early in the day. “Few people stopped by after the cold weather set in,” he said “When we were getting visitors, city officials and a number of other people told me they were excited about the effort to bring the share-a-bike program to our community.” Englewood Mayor Randy Penn took a test ride on one of the bikes. He said he found it easy to pedal and easy to steer. “I think the B-cycle program would be great for our community,” he said. “It is a way to make it more convenient to get from

A trailer and bike station were set up April 22 to introduce the B-cycle program to Englewood. The display launched an effort to get a share-a-bike program up and running in Arapahoe County. Photo by Tom Munds place to place without getting into a car.” Phillips said the open house and display kicked off the project, and the next step is to raise the needed financing, about $1.5 million.

“We are just getting started, but it seems doors are starting to open for our fundraising effort,” he said. “We are looking at grant possibilities, and they are many. One of our volunteers is doing the research and writing

the grant proposals.” Phillips said he also will seek support from corporations in the form of advertising dollars. There are almost a dozen possible ad spaces on each bicycle. Phillips said the cost of ad placement is tax-deductible because the Arapahoe County B-Cycle project is a nonprofit organization. “We feel the ad spaces on the bikes could generate about $2,100 a month in revenues,” Phillips said. “That money would help make sure the project is sustainable.” He pointed out that share-a-bike programs have worked well in other communities, including Denver and Boulder, reducing pollution by getting cars off the road and providing exercise for the riders. Phillips said tentative phase one plans would set up 10 stations located near the light rail stations in Englewood, Littleton and Sheridan. The expanded phase would establish stations in Greenwood Village, Centennial and Aurora. The program allows regular uses to purchase an annual, monthly or weekly membership, plus the occasional rider can use one of the available bikes on a walk-up basis. For more information about the effort to bring B-cycles to Arapahoe county, visit or call Phillips at 720-2039370.

Sundays on the Streets adds eats Food trucks to rally at Centennial outdoor market By Deborah Grigsby Local hipsters and foodies, rejoice. Sundays on the Streets, Centennial’s yearly outdoor art market known for its eclectic taste in all things artsy, now hopes to be known for all things tasty, too. Along with its new location at Cherry Knolls Shopping Center, directly across the street from The Streets at SouthGlenn, event pro-

moter Robin Loughran says this year’s market will include an army of food trucks. Yes, food trucks. No longer the last bastion for sandwiches at construction sites, Loughran said food trucks have morphed into trendy mobile catering options offering a smorgasbord of different cuisines. “It’s a perfect combination for us this year,” she said. “They’ve long been a hit downtown and we hope to have the largest collection of gourmet food trucks in the city at Sundays on the Streets and we’ve already got five trucks confirmed.” A summertime staple at The Streets at SouthGlenn,

IF YOU GO Sundays on the Streets 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., rain or shine • May 12 • Aug. 11 • June 9 • Sept. 8 • July 14 • Oct. 13 New location — Cherry Knolls Shopping Center University Boulevard and Arapahoe Road (Directly across from the Streets at SouthGlenn) For more information and vendor applications, contact Robin Loughran at 720-985-8580

Loughran also said the market’s decision move to Cherry Knolls was based on the need for more space and options for vendors. “We’ve got a little more

room to spread out, and while vendor tents are encouraged, they are not required,” she said. “We will also have more flexibility when it comes to parking and setup.” Sundays on the Streets features the wares of local artisans, photographers and other crafty folk. “There’s jewelry, handbags, designer accessories, baked goods and this year, we’ve added antiques,” said Loughran. The market is held monthly on the second Sunday, beginning on Mother’s Day, May 12. Market hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Loughran said interested vendors, artisans,

Local event promoter Robin Loughran is promising Centennial’s largest rally of trendy food trucks each month at Sunday on the Streets, the city’s annual outdoor market, which begins May 12. Food trucks, like Denver-based Solar Coffee, pictured here, have become popular among hipsters and foodies. Photo by Deborah Grigsby musicians and food trucks should contact her directly for an application. While space is still available, she expects to be sold out soon.

“Centennial is my home, too,” she said. “And Sundays on the Streets is just one way to celebrate the people of this wonderful community and in which we live.”

‘Duck’ stars grace Rock

Eric Mather and Seth Maisel (front), Mackenzie Paulsen and James O’Hagen Murphy (rear) on their breakneck adventures in “The 39 Steps” at Littleton’s Town Hall Arts Center. Courtesy photo by Michael Ensminger

Classic play gets frantic Town Hall hosts ‘The 39 Steps’ By Sonya Ellingboe London, 1935. Bored special-agent type Robert Hannay, tired of being back in London (his old buddies are married or eaten by a crocodile), decides to go to the theater as the Town Hall Arts Center production of “The 39 Steps” opens. Hannay, played by James O’Hagan Murphy, is joined in his theater box by sexy spy Annabella Schmidt (Mackenzie Paulsen) who goes home with him — and is murdered by morning. He is off and running towards the Scottish Highlands, from unknown killers and in search of the spy ring called 39 Steps — with three different women, all played by Paulsen.

if you go “The 39 Steps” plays at Littleton’s Town Hall Arts Center through May 5. Performances: 7:30 p.m. Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays; 2 p.m. Sundays and Saturday, April 27. Tickets: $20-$40, 303-794-2787, ext. 5 or Ten value seats are made available at $10 each one hour prior to each published curtain time.

The rest of the 100-plus parts are played with astonishing comic timing by two “clowns”: Eric Mather and Seth Maisel. Sometimes it’s just the change of a hat and at other times, there are rapid costume changes — all very cleverly staged by veteran director Robert Wells. We see a race across the tops of a moving train headed towards the Highlands, the misty Scottish moors at dawn, the McGarrigle Hotel and its peculiar proprietors, the stage of the London Palladium and more ... Hitchcock’s original 1935 movie was

based on a spy thriller written in 1915 by John Buchan. One wonders what those two would think of this crazy version, adapted by Patrick Barlow. And one wonders at the imagination that could envision this ongoing hilarity. It’s a delightful spoof that keeps an audience laughing as our hero is chased by police, dogs, planes and sinister types. Wells, in his notes, calls our attention to the first biplane crash ever staged at Town Hall. His skill in bringing out the comedic, as well as that of the actors, who have to change directions and characters on a dime, make it work — aided by a nimble backstage crew. The play is set in 33 scenes — from Hannay’s London apartment to the Highlands and back again. Presumably, the auditions emphasized fitness as a requirement for the cast — especially for Murphy’s Hannay!

Multifaceted artist to perform ragtime Roberts coming to Englewood music shop By Sonya Ellingboe Composer, pianist, visual artist and poet David Thomas Roberts is a 21st-century Renaissance man. He will illustrate one facet of his multiple talents when he performs for the Ragtime Society of Colorado at 7 p.m. May 1 in Englewood. Roberts, who has performed in Norway, Japan, New York and across the U.S., will focus on traditional and New Ragtime — or “Terra Verde” — at the Ragtime Society’s new venue, Schmitt Music, 155 W. Hampden Ave., Englewood. (Turn north on Cherokee into the shopping center. Schmitt Music is on the right, with parking.) Roberts was born in 1955 in Moss Point, Miss., and wrote his first piece, a waltz, at 8, performing it in a recital. By his mid-teens, immersed in music, his compositions increased in depth, influ-

enced, he writes, “by the work of Ives, Satie, Cage and Joplin — influences that continue to drive me.” “Romantic Minimalism” is one facet of his work that continues today — “an emotive, pattern-driven direction.” But what his Colorado audiences will hear is in the realm of a specialized art music, New Ragtime and its relative, Terra Verde, that niche audiences around the world recognize as David Thomas Roberts’ sound and material. Perhaps best known is “Roberto Clemente” (1979), as well as “Camille,” “Through the Bottomlands,” “Frederic and the Coast” (also 1979). His playlist for May 1 had not arrived as of press time. He writes that in 1995, he first applied the term “Terra Verde” to the “Neo Romantic Pan-American genre he had pioneered.” Latin beats combine with the ragtime style in a lively, pleasing sound which harks back to early composer Louis Moreau Gottschalk, who used to haul his piano by train, performing in the U.S. and Latin America.

if you go David Thomas Roberts will perform at 7 p.m. May 1 at Schmitt Music. 155 W. Hampden Ave., Englewood, sponsored by the Ragtime Society of Colorado. Tickets cost $20/$15 members. For reservations, call 303-979-4353, society president Colleen VanderHoek of Littleton. Roberts and pianists Frank French and Scott Kirby have incorporated Gottschalk’s style into their own modern versions of Terra Verde. All integrate traditional ragtime pieces such as those by Scott Joplin into their programs as well. (Kirby is scheduled in September.) Roberts, who is an active Primitivist painter, relates to the American landscape in his compositions, with suites such as “American Landscapes,” “New Orleans Streets” and “Map Dreams. His 20 released discs include many first recordings of neglected American pieces of the late 19th and early 20th century — such as Gottschalk.

The Rock Christian Academy in Castle Rock has bagged Phil and Willie Robertson, two of the stars of the wildly popular “Duck Dynasty,” A&E’s reality series, for a speaking engagement and fundraiser beginning at 6:30 p.m. May 19 at The Douglas County Events Center. Event organizer and Rock Christian Academy parent Michael Brumbaugh took dead aim at the Robertson clan months ago by contacting the family’s agent and refusing to give up. His persistence paid off. Phil and Willie, part of the family that made its fortune in products for duck hunters, will speak about “Faith, testimony, business, the importance of raising children with biblical principles and a Christian education.” “We need to do a big event every year to continue to fund the scholarship fund,” Brumbaugh said. “I thought about it for a couple of months, then started watching `Duck Dynasty.’ I thought, `These guys are great! I wonder if they do speaking engagements since they come from a Christian family?’” The persistent parent hounded the agent until he got a “confirmed” answer. “When your heart is in something and you believe in something as strong as the Rock Academy, and how God is moving in that school, you fight for what you believe in,” he said. “This year God blessed us with `Duck Dynasty.’” With 8.6 million viewers, A&E’s “Duck Dynasty” is the highest-rated reality show on cable TV. The money raised from the event’s ticket sales will help fund a 10,000-square-foot expansion of the existing building, build the school’s playground and provide financial aid and scholarships to families who can’t afford the $4,700 annual tuition. VIP tickets (with a pre-event meet and greet) are $150; other tickets are $60 for general admission to $80 for “gold seating” right behind the VIP seats.

Elway’s concerts scheduled

The hottest patio of the season is Elway’s at Cherry Creek — no doubt, no argument. Elway’s Cherry Creek summer concerts return with live music, cocktails, the signature menu and beautiful Colorado evenings in the Elways’ backyard starting June 19. These wildly popular outdoor concerts play each Wednesday night from mid-June through late August, including the return of the Railbenders to the Summer Music Series and a special Independence Day July 3 celebration for 2013 featuring local legends The Samples along with special food and cocktails. Appearing this year are several tribute bands including Message in a Bottle, covering The Police; Forever in Blue Jeans, channeling Neil Diamond standards; and Under a Blood Red Sky, who rock out U2 hits. The brotherly harmonies of Something Underground take stage on July 10. And newcomers, Justin Lane Band, will bring hard-hitting country to the backyard while all-girl band The Trishas deal a combination of tight four-part harmonies in an eclectic soulful sound.

Choices in glazes “depend on what you come up with that pleases you,” she said. She works in her home studio in Roxborough Park, where she has a potter’s wheel, slab roller, electric and raku kilns. For gas firing, she uses the large kiln at the guild studio, which can involve a considerable time commitment, as firings take longer. It does give different colors with glazes and can go to the higher Cone 10 temperature, which allows different effects. About 30 potters will exhibit and sell almost 2,500 pieces of original, handmade functional and sculptural pottery.

“A group of us has been experimenting with a new temperature this year,” said Colorado Potters Guild member Mary Lou Steenrod of Littleton. “We have been firing Cone 6 glazes in the gas kiln (instead of the electric kiln usually used for these lower temperatures). “It gives us a new palette of colors,” she said, adding: “A number of pieces with these new colors will be included” in the guild’s Spring Show and Sale, scheduled May 2-4 at First Plymouth Congregational Church, she said. She, personally, has been doing more work in porcelain, which she will also display. She uses a combination of glazes available at the guild’s studio, such as a copper glaze is enhanced by use of wax resist and then the addition of a black glaze, which gives green color where the two blend together.

As the Arapahoe Philharmonic orchestra wraps up its 59th season, the musicians have completed a search for a new conductor to follow in the footsteps of the late Vincent LaGuardia Jr. On May 10, Devin Patrick Hughes will take his place in front of the orchestra for a concert at Mission Hills Church, called “The Magnificent Orchestra,” which includes Mahler’s “Symphony No. 1 (Titan),” Brahms’ “Academic Festival Overture” and Gershwin’s “Lullaby for Strings.” Musician Gail Sindelar, who has been involved in the selection process, writes: “The Arapahoe Philharmonic Players have had 15 different conductors since last May: four auditioning conductors, two guest conductors for special concerts, three assistant conductors and six conductors for our youth outreach programs.”

every time in the pool.’ Pirates swim team members probably will achieve some individual milestones this season, but the small roster means Englewood is unlikely to win any dual meets. “There is no lack of effort on the part of our swimmers, but the small roster puts us at a disadvantage at dual meets because we don’t have the depth to challenge for top spot in all events,” Pirates coach Elizabeth Sedalnick said during the April 17 meet at George Washington High School. “We lost some kids who were with us earlier this season and I attribute that primarily to the fact we don’t have a home pool. But the 10 kids we have are amazing. They show up every day to practice and they are passionate about being on the swimming team and doing their best.” The Pirates were on the road again April 23 at Montbello and, on April 26, they travel to Westminster. The team then wraps up the month on April 30 with a road meet against Thomas Jefferson. The coach said the fact that Englewood no longer has a pool at the school proved to be a bigger deal that she thought it would be. The Englewood High School pool was demolished as part of the construction of the new seventh- through 12th-grade campus on the site. That means the swim team

Coach Elizabeth Sedalnick has to practice at the Englewood Recreation Center and does not swim any meets at home. “The fact we don’t have a pool is probably why about half the guys who said they would come out for the team either didn’t come out or have left since we started practice,” she said. “But I believe the loss of a home pool will become less of an issue in the future because the guys will be used to the way we do things now.” The coach said she is so proud of the 10 swimmers on the roster. “I would not trade a state championship team for the boys I have now who put forward total commitment every time in the pool. I would rather have these kids than a group of talented swimmers who really don’t care about the team or the sport,” the coach said. “ An example of the effort kids put forth is the fact we had two guys come out for the team, Jeremiah Traylor and Miles vonSteinmetz, who could not swim. They are amazing, have worked really hard and have steadily improved. Against George Wash-

ington, Miles cut 19 seconds off his personal best time in the 50-meter freestyle when he swam it in 42.58 seconds, and Jeremiah improved his personal best by four seconds to 42.28 seconds.” George Washington won the meet 14830. Englewood’s best finishes in events were by Ethan Mounts,who finished third in the 200-meter freestyle, and Javier Baylon, who finished third in the 100-meter breaststroke. Ricardo Baylon, one of the team’s two seniors, said Sedalnick convinced him to come out for the swimming team when he was a sophomore, he found he liked it and has stuck with it. “I have always liked to swim but never tried competition before until I joined the team,” he said. “I found it was a hard sport and I like challenges, so I stayed with the team.” He said challenges included learning to do the butterfly stroke and the amount of yardage required in each practice in order to develop stamina and refine the techniques required by each stroke. “I really like to swim the backstroke,” he

said. “I like it because I am on my back and it is so much easier to breathe while I am swimming.” He said the most enjoyable thing about being on the team is practicing and swimming with his teammates. He said his personal goal for the year is to swim the 50 freestyle in 30 seconds. He said that will require cutting four seconds off his personal best time in the event, but he said focus on stamina and technique will enable him to achieve his goal. Fellow senior Jacob Jolly said, like his teammate, the coach convinced him to join the swim team in his sophomore year. “I came out for the team and, once I got into it, I found it was not too hard and it was fun,” he said. “I discovered swimming a long distance was awesome because you just let your body do the work under control of your subconscious mind while your conscious mind thinks about other things.” Jolly swims the 500-meter freestyle, which means he is in the water more than seven minutes. “As I am swimming the 500 freestyle, I try to pick out fast songs in my mind and swim in time to the music,” he said. “There are several songs and I change from song to song, seeking a faster beat the further I get into the event.” He also swims the 200 individual medley and he said, for him, swimming the 50-meter butterfly stroke leg is the most challenging. However, in the George Washington meet, he swam the 200 individual medley in 3:16.67, which was 19 seconds faster than his personal best time in the event.

Pirates rebound with soccer win Englewood continues hunt for playoffs By Tom Munds Disappointment showed in the faces of Englewood’s players and coaches after an April 19 soccer loss to Elizabeth, but the Pirates put it behind them the next day and defeated Fort Morgan 3-1. “We expected to win the game with Elizabeth but they took advantage of our mistakes,” Pirates coach Bill Gilmore said after the Elizabeth game. “After the loss, I told the girls we still had four games to play and still had a chance to make the playoffs, so they needed to focus on the Fort Morgan game, and they did.” The Pirates come into the week with an 8-2 overall record and they are 2-2 in league, which puts them the middle of the Colorado 7 girls soccer standings. However, the remaining schedule consists of four league games, and the outcome of those games will determine where they finish in the standings. On April 23, the Pirates were at Aurora Public Schools Stadium against Vista Peak, and on April 25 they travel to Weld Central. The Pirates play their final regular season home game April 30 against Fort Morgan and close out the schedule May 2 with an on-the-road rematch with Elizabeth. “I knew it would be a shootout against Elizabeth but I never expected us to give up eight goals,” Gilmore said. “This loss means we are no longer in control of our own destiny as far as the playoffs go. If we don’t finish in the top two we don’t get an automatic bid. Right now we aren’t first or second in league, so we just have to focus on winning our remaining games and see what happens when they draw up the state playoff bracket.” There will be 32 teams in the Class 4A state playoffs. Automatic bids to top league finishers could total 24. The remaining spots in the bracket will be at-large spots that will be filled by the tournament seeding committee. The Englewood-Elizabeth game was a hard-fought, physical battle. The Pirates made a bid for a comeback as Elijah Daughtry scored a pair of goals in the closing four minutes of the game, but it wasn’t enough, as the Cardinals won, 8-6. It apparently was a different story April 20 in Fort Morgan as the Pirates controlled the tempo of play the whole game. According to Fort Morgan statistics, their goalie had to make 25 saves, but the

Photo by Tom Munds Pirates still put three shots in the net to win the game, 3-1. Julia Kline, Lucy Yaklich and Daughtry each had a goal for Englewood. Pirates goalie Cassidy Cox played a good game and made six saves. This is the first year Pirate defender Maddie Smith has played soccer. She said she wanted to stay active, and in the spring it was either soccer or track and, since she isn’t a runner, she chose soccer. “I’ve always wanted to play soccer, I decided why not and I joined the team this year. I found soccer is a lot of fun but it also was harder than I expected to be able to play well,” she said. “In particular, I found learning the eye-foot coordination to be able to handle the ball well was harder to master than I thought it would be. I am a catcher for the softball team and I play basketball, so it has been hard to overcome the habit of reaching up to catch the ball with my hands.” Smith said her play as a soccer player has improved at least 100 percent since the start of the season. “I was a real rookie when I started. The coaches and my teammates worked with me to help me improve. Now I find my speed and quickness are better and my ability to know where to be as a defender when the other team is coming up the field has

improved tons. I also feel, when I have the ball, I know a lot more about where I need to put it to help our team push up the field,” she said. “I am a defender and I really like that position because I enjoy being physical

and I get the chance as a defender.” She said her goal for the remaining games is to keep improving and stay strong as a defender to do all she can to help her team win.
