Campus project breaks ground Ceremony marks demolition’s end, start of construction By Tom Munds

first fall fling. She said she moved to Englewood earlier this year and a neighbor offered her a ticket, so she decided to come and see what the event was all about. “I came tonight because I am a strong supporter of public education. This is fun and I hope they raise a lot of money for a great program,” she said. “They won my heart when those kids in the Strings Attached program performed. I appreciate what the foundation is doing and I will do what I can to support it.” She said she also had a great experience as she met four former Broncos players who attended the event. “I am a big Bronco fan and meeting players like Larry Evans and Wade Manning was pretty special,” she said. “I got to talk to them and I got their autographs,

Cloudy weather didn’t dampen the mood Oct. 12 as school officials, board members and guests used shovels to turn a little dirt, ceremonially launching construction of the more than two-year project to transform the current Englewood High School area into a modern sevenththrough 12th-grade campus. Work had been under way on the Englewood High School campus since spring as crews demolished the Lowell Building, technical arts building, tennis courts and pool and hauled away the debris. The completed demolition provided a large open area where the groundbreaking ceremony was held. “This is the beginning of the next step of the project and soon we’ll see crews moving a lot of dirt so they pour foundations for the first of the building,” said Brian Ewert, school superintendent. “This is the kickoff of a major, exciting project symbolizing that Englewood Schools is moving into the 21st century and are here to stay.” Ewert said that, along with new buildings, the district is making major changes to curriculum and instruction methods. “We have to understand we are educating students and preparing them for jobs that may not exist today,” he said. “That requires a different approach to teaching in order to have graduates who are critical thinkers, problem-solvers and have the ability to collaborate to solve problems. We must do that because we are told that in the near future, it will be rare to find a job that is done in isolation.” Ewert said the new campus will be state-of-the-art and will include the equipment for a STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) program, a culinary arts program and a visual arts performance program. “We are thinking and talking about the future of technology being on a oneto-one basis, meaning every student will have some form of technology in his or her hands every day,” the superintendent said. “Technology is definitely changing things and I can see the time in the not-too-distant future when there will be few traditional textbooks, as just about all textbooks will be available on laptop computers or pads.” The groundbreaking signaled the start of construction needed to create a modern campus. All the buildings will be new except the auditorium and the field house. How-

Fall Fling yields fun, funds Englewood Education Foundation holds annual fundraiser By Tom Munds More than 100 people had a catered dinner and opportunities for lots of conversation, and many took part in enthusiastic auction bidding during the Sept. 12 Englewood Education Foundation Fall Fling. “This is our major fundraiser and I think it was a success again this year,” said Karen Miller, EEF president. “This fundraiser is very important and all we raise goes to our programs since several years ago when we became an all-volunteer organization.” She said the money goes to the foundation’s two major projects, creativity grants and scholarships. Last year, the foundation awarded $18,000 in scholarships to 2012 graduates of Englewood High School and Colorado’s Finest Alternative High School. Additionally, this fall the organization provided more than $16,000 in creativity grants to teachers for projects not included in the normal district budget. She said sponsors have stepped up this year and their donations will cover

That will allow the money from ticket sales and the auctions to be used for scholarships and for creativity grants. A variety of items were donated for the auctions, including a baseball signed by Colorado Rockies player Todd Helton as well as wine gift sets, gift baskets and hand-knitted scarfs.

Shops for immigrants aren’t strictly business Indira Torres stands behind the counter, mahogany hair neatly pulled back, ready for the steady flow of requests. “How are you?” she asks in Spanish as a man in paint-spattered pants, a camouflage Air Force hat tipped back on his head, walks through the door. “Muy bien, gracias a Dios,” he says. Very well, thanks be to God. He hands his check to Torres to cash. A young mother pushes a stroller inside and gives Torres $40 to pay toward her light bill. Torres taps in the woman’s information on the computer and applies it electronically. An older man pays for a calling card to Mexico. A young woman adds $3 on a rechargeable phone account. A daughter sends her retired parents, in their 70s and in Mexico, several hundred dollars for living expenses. A son wires his mother — and a sister — also in Mexico, enough money “so that they won’t lack for anything.” This small storefront, in a Latino market that sells the fond tastes of once-upon-a-time lives, has become a one-stop shop that helps preserve the connection between the old country and the new one. It also provides the financial services essential to begin planting stable roots here. It’s like a warm, comfortable home, says Mayra Saldana, a petite 28-year-old Littleton resident who with her parents

owns the Littleton store and another in Denver that adjoins a restaurant. “We provide the services where we can send money to their families and, as well, commonly used ingredients for Hispanic dinners.” Food for the soul in every way. The businesses, throughout the Denver metro area, nearly shout their services in bold-colored lettering in Spanish to passersby — money transfers, checkcashing, calling cards, money orders. Like Saldana’s two places, many share space with restaurants, small neighborhood markets or convenience stores that sell everything from piñatas and cowboy boots to pico de gallo and baptismal candles. One, on Federal Boulevard in Denver, advertises its services in a jewelry store. The stores are a cultural reference point for many Latino immigrants, says Laszlo Kalloi, community affairs consul for the Mexican Consulate in Denver. He notes that consulate officials encourage the use of traditional bank services, rath-

er than the private businesses, because more financial options are offered. But the neighborhood locations and absence of a language barrier make them feel more comfortable, he says. “They know the system and it’s easier.” Walking through the doors is like stepping into another country, one with mariachi or cumbia music soft in the background, freshly baked pan dulce on trays and Spanish CDs and DVDs on the racks. The sweet-spicy hot tamarind candy and crispy homemade chicharrones take me back to my growing-up years in Mexico and the other Latin American countries we lived in when my parents worked for then-United Fruit Co., which produced Chiquita bananas. The nostalgic warmth of memories tease my heart for the culture I love deeply, and I can only imagine how it must remind many how far they are from home. And, yet, maybe not so far, at least for a few moments, with the assistance of people like Indira Torres, 27, who drives six days a week from her house near I-70 and I-25 to Las Huertas Mexican market. She doesn’t mind the commute to Littleton. “I am happy here because I know these people. I feel like this is my second home.” With a kind smile, she deftly works the computer like a magician. She knows how to make the transfer happen, which calling card to suggest and how to exchange cash for money orders to pay the rent. Just east of I-25 on Lincoln Ave. See

She gets the job — all the jobs — done. For construction workers. Restaurant waiters and busboys. Mostly men, but some women, too. Mostly from Mexico, Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala. But also some from India, Saudi Arabia and Africa. They all come, many weekly, to conduct their financial transactions with confianza, Torres says. Trust. That is why Veronica Vargas, 37, on a recent afternoon, walked in after her restaurant shift to send money to her family in Mexico. Trust — and the language — make it “easier.” She is one of 10 siblings and also has many nephews and nieces. She tries to help her parents out the most, but “I help them all,” she says. “Not always, because sometimes, I can’t. But a little bit.” These are the stories Torres hears every day as she facilitates the connection from the home in the new country to the home in the old country. Money sent to buy medicine, to help build a house, to make life a little better. Stories about the bond that transcends the miles — love.

Kent Place retail area taking shape By Tom Munds Construction of the buildings for the Kent Place retail development are in the final stages. For example, Fresh Fare by King Soopers, the anchor for the Kent Place retail development, is scheduled to open by mid-December and, according to reports, other retail stores scheduled to open about the same time. Kent Place is the development of the former Denver Seminary site. There were several development proposals but the economy brought about changes. Work is now under way for Continuum Partners, working with Regency Centers to build the retail development on half the 11.4 acre site. The other half of the site will be an apartment complex developed by Forum Real Estate Group. The retail development is nearing completion, while work is in the early stages on the residential development that is expect to take about two years. Fresh Fare by King Soopers will be the retail development anchor. The main floor of the building will be 30,000 square feet and there will be a 10,000-squarefoot mezzanine area. Kelly McGannon, marketing and communications director for King Soop-

ers, said Fresh Fare by King Soopers will provide the usual wide selection of food products and fresh produce that are traditional in the supermarket. She also noted the store’s decor has been designed to fit the community. “While all the items are there for regular grocery shopping, Fresh Fare is a new concept because the store will also feature a variety of grab-and-go meals,” she said. “Those grab-and-go meals will be prepared in the facilities that occupy the mezzanine of the store.” The retail development also includes two other buildings that reportedly are 81 percent leased. Tenants include a King Soopers pharmacy, Kriser’s Pet Food, Wine Pro and Patxi’s Pizza. Other spaces also have reportedly leased by an ice cream store and a restaurant. Chase Bank will occupy separate building at the northeast side of the retail site. The banking facilities will include two drive-up lanes, one that is serviced by a teller and the other that provides access to an automatic teller machine. While the retail development is nearing completion, heavy equipment is preparing the north and east edges of the site for construction of the residential development. Plans are for 250 to 300 apartments in the building that will be up to five stories high. Forecasts are it will take about two years to complete construction of the facility that will offer luxury, high-end apartments for rent.

Halloween Carnival draws near Rec center gets transformation By Tom Munds Even before the sun goes down, a steady parade of costumed creatures of every size, shape and description is expected to begin arriving for the Oct. 27 Halloween Carnival. This year’s carnival will be held from 5-8:30 p.m. at the Englewood Recreation Center at 1155 W. Oxford Ave. There is no charge for admission, but game tickets are 25 cents each. A single ticket is required for most attractions. To try to alleviate the wait, attraction tickets are now on sale at the recreation center and at the Malley Senior Recreation Center. On carnival night, as in past years,

there are expected to be large and small visitors dressed as a variety of comic book characters, slinky as well as scary witches, some ballerinas, a few princesses, several pirates and some creatures that defy description, They are there for the one night each year when the Englewood Recreation Center is transformed from a center dedicated to health and fitness into the spooky habitat of cackling witches and marauding monsters attending the annual Englewood Halloween Carnival. Coming through the front door, visitors find the lobby is populated by a variety of characters and creatures handing out candy. The next stop is the gymnasium, transformed into a beehive of activities. Booths lining the walls include carnivalstyle games and skill challenges, such as an opportunity to shoot a hockey puck into a goal and a chance to knock down figures with bean bags. Win or lose, the

contestant gets some type of prize. At the same time, the center of the gym floor is taken up by popular inflatable attractions, like an obstacle course, and an inflatable room where kids can jump up and down to enjoy the trampoline-like action of the air-filled floor. A concession stand will sell snacks like popcorn, with proceeds going to benefit the Englewood Youth Council programs. Jeff Jones, organizer of this year’s event, said the haunted house had become a regular event at the carnival but was missing last year. However, he said it will be back at this year’s carnival and it will be bigger and scarier than ever. There will be a costume contest between 6 and 7 p.m. Those who want to take part in the contest need to sign up at the concession stand. There is also a location where those attending can have a photo taken in their costumes.

Each year, between 1,500 and 2,000 people attend Englewood’s Halloween carnival. Many families like the Cheryl Thompson family make the carnival an annual event. The Englewood resident said there was a family meeting in late summer to try to come up with a costume theme that works for the whole family. “Some ideas just won’t work and some ideas sound good but it proves to be too tough to create the costumes,” she said. “But, eventually we come up with an idea we can use.” She said she, her two sisters and her cousins have been shopping discount stores for clothes and accessories that can be used as they create costumes for the family group that will probably number more than a dozen. Thompson declined to talk about the family costume theme but said she thinks it will be easy to spot them on the night of the carnival.

Turkey day is more than a month away, but Inter-Faith Community Services is working toward its goal of gathering and filling more than 800 baskets with all the fixings for a traditional Thanksgiving dinner. “We began registration for holiday programs midSeptember and we had a huge response. The thing that sort of surprised me is the fact most of the signups were new to InterFaith,” said Maria Pearson, Inter-Faith spokeswoman. “We decided to keep the Thanksgiving food baskets at about 800, the same as last year.” On distribution day, Inter-Faith provides each client with a box of food that includes all the in-

gredients for a traditional Thanksgiving dinner for a family of five, plus enough food to last an extra day or two. Instead of meat, the box includes a supermarket gift certificate to purchase a turkey or a ham. Purchasing the items to fill the box probably would cost about $135. Pearson said that in addition to the items scheduled to go in the boxes, Inter-Faith can use cash donations to purchase the gift cards and buy the fresh produce that are included in the box. Donations are coming in and Pearson said the biggest needs right now are turkey or chicken gravy, marshmallows, large cans of yams, oatmeal and tuna helper. Churches and service organizations regularly reach out to help people through Inter-Faith. For example, Swedish Medical Center is conducting a month-long food drive for the Thanksgiving program, as are Mayflower Church and Colorado Heights University. Pearson said the cities of Englewood and Littleton will join the effort, as will the Centennial Youth Commission. She also said the congregation of Shepherd of the Hills Church in Centennial always helps with donations of food and money. There also are plans for food drives outside local supermarkets. Groups staffing the drives include the Centennial Rotary and the Englewood Lions. “We are so thankful that so many people volunteer to help up with all our projects,” Pearson said. “Last year, more than 12,000 people volunteered their time and efforts and we expect our total number of volunteers to exceed that number this year.” For information on about Inter-Faith, its programs or how to make donations, call 303-7780501.

Seeking re-election, Newell notes ‘purple approach’

0 nBy Jennifer Smith n Sen. Linda Newell, a Democrat, is erunning for a second term in state Senoate District 26. She’s held the seat since eedging out Republican Lauri Clapp in 2008, and the red team every much wants it oback. This time, Newell .faces Republican Dave aKerber. Newell grew up in rOrange County, Catlif., daughter of a tclinical psycholorgist and a high-school Newell -teacher. She has a bachelor’s degree from Unieversity of California, Irvine. She is also sa certified senior professional in hufman resources and registered organization development professional. She has been a member of the National Busi-

ness Executives and the Women’s Professional Network. She has two grown daughters. SD-26 includes all or part of Littleton, Centennial, Greenwood Village, Cherry Hills Village, Englewood, Sheridan, Columbine Valley, Bow Mar, a small part of Aurora and other areas. Colorado Community Media asked the following questions of the candidates in Senate District 26. Below are Newell’s answers. (Editor’s note: Kerber opted not to answer the questions.) What makes you the best candidate for this office? Four years ago, I made a commitment to listen to my constituents and work with people of all parties for the common good of all Coloradans. I’ve kept that promise and have represented a “purple” district in a purple way. In doing so, 97 percent of my bills had bipartisan support, and I’ve been recognized as one of

the most effective legislators at the Capitol. I work hard, smart and I get things done. That’s why Republicans, Democrats and independents support me. They see that I get people from both sides of the aisle working together. That’s my proven track record. What do you see as the biggest challenge facing the district and what would you do to meet that challenge? Continued economic recovery. We’ve been able to keep ahead slightly of other states by reducing red tape, improving the regulatory scheme and collaborating with groups like business, education, transportation and nonprofits. As an example, I’m proud of sponsoring the Film Production Jobs bill this year to bring back the film industry and tourism jobs we’ve lost over the last decade. But there’s still more to do. I will con-

tinue to partner with the governor and business and education communities to look out for job opportunities, as I have each year, and help get people back to self-sufficiency.

What should be done to improve Colorado’s K-12 educational system? We’re lucky in Senate District 26 to have the best school districts in Colorado! Important next steps for education are comprehensive fiscal reform and review of statewide mandates that no longer work for the system, which, in turn, no longer work for the student. As with my Fair School Discipline bill, I collaborated with all parties to make sure we’re finding solutions that make sense at the district, school and student level. Colorado has taken huge steps to reform our education system, and I will continue to work with stakeholders to find evidence-based solutions that lead to student success.

DeGette urges policy certainty Stroud says politics not career W By Tom Munds Democratic Congresswoman Diana DeGette is campaigning to continue to continue to represent Colorado’s Congressional District 1 in the U.S. House of Representatives. DeGette is a fourth- generation Coloradan who graduated from Denver South High School. She earned her bachelor’s degree from Colorado College and her law degree in 1982 from New York University. She was elected to the state House of Representatives in 1993 and again in 1995. In 1996, when Democratic District 1 Congresswoman Patricia Schroeder decided not to run for another term, DeGette was selected as the candidate Degette by Democrats and won the election. She and her husband live in Denver. The DeGettes have two daughters. Colorado Community Media asked the following questions of the candidates in the Congressional District 1 race. Below are DeGette’s answers. What makes you the best candidate for this office? I’m honored to currently represent the 1st Congressional District. Every day I have the privilege of bringing my constituents’ concerns and priorities to my colleagues, and this year I’m particularly proud to welcome the input of new constituents in our district. I’m proud to have fought for quality, affordable health care; led the charge on stem cell research;

spearheaded reforms to ensure food safety and worked to protect our resources, while driving a clean energy future. I’m the senior member of Colorado’s delegation and ranking member on Oversight & Investigations, so I can ensure Colorado always has a seat at the table, and our shared values are reflected in national policy. If elected, what would you do to promote job growth? Our most important task is to get Americans back to work. I talk to many business owners and they say what holds them back is policy uncertainty in D.C. We must come together and address our fiscal challenges immediately to bring certainty back to the markets and the business community. Doing so will prompt more hiring and help our small businesses get the capital they need to grow. What is the best way to meet the nation’s growing energy demands? Here in Colorado we are well-positioned to drive the 21st-century clean energy economy, in our nation and across the globe. Colorado’s research base, our welleducated workforce, and our vast natural resources offer our state a unique opportunity. In our state, clean-tech jobs are already vastly outpacing overall job growth overall, meaning not only can we provide the energy our nation needs, but we can create jobs in the process. Through renewable energy and our vast natural resources, we can meet the nation’s energy demands. However, we must have policies that promote all types of energy, driving innovation and job creation.

By Tom Munds Republican Danny Stroud is challenging eight-term incumbent Congresswoman Diana DeGette to represent District 1 in the U.S. House of Representatives. Stroud was born in Oregon. In 1971, he became the first in his family to attend college when he was selected to attend the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. He graduated in 1975 with a bachelor’s degree with academic emphasis in Middle Eastern studies before serving six years in the Army in a number of locations and roles. He later earned his master’s degree from St. Mary’s College of California. He moved to Colorado 20 years ago, has held a number of positions Stroud and is serving as president of his firm, Verz Ventures, a company that works on economic development issues with small and medium-size companies. He lives in Denver and is the father of two daughters who are both in college. Colorado Community Media asked the following questions of the candidates in the Congressional District 1 race. Below are Stroud’s answers. What makes you the best candidate for this office? I have the knowledge, skills and motivation. I do not view this as a career. It is a call to duty just as our Founding Fathers envisioned. I am a West Point graduate with 13 years active and reserve service with knowledge of military spending. I earned the Meri-

torious Service Medal (twice) and am aB life member of the Veterans of Foreignj Wars. I have started and run successful small businesses. I know how to balance a budget and spend within my means. I was a director at the nonprofit Mentall Health Association in California. My twot daughters have successfully tackled col-S lege, work and community service. I haver been active as a volunteer in their school1 and sports teams for 13 years as a coachm and parent. If elected, what would you do to pro-fi mote job growth? Simplify tax structurest and lower corporate tax rates to allowh middle-class small business owners tov keep more of their income. Reduce regu-i lations on businesses that drive up con-d sumer costs. Unleash domestic energya production to lower energy costs, there-J by lowering business costs and creatingH jobs. Decrease the cost of government by reducing its size, complexity and spend-v ing habits because a too-large govern-l ment stifles growth. Reduce the deficitP spending. Re-examine our foreign tradef practices and curtail unfair practices while strengthening and opening newa markets for American goods and servic-c es. I want to give every family access toB great schools at all levels with affordabler higher education and focused job-train-s ing programs that develop marketable skills that all businesses need. What is the best way to meet the na-d tion’s growing energy demands? Open up responsible domestic energy exploration and production; cease vilification of the hydrocarbon energy sources and encourage “all of the above” efforts for energy independence. We have sufficient energy supplies here in North America to be completely energy independent.

Doty closing DMV offices on Election Day Commissioners OK request by candidate aiming to join their ranks Staff report Arapahoe County’s Republican Clerk and Recorder Nancy Doty, running for county commissioner against Democrat Carrie Warren-Gully, has been granted her request to close several county buildings — including Department of Motor Vehicle centers and the county workforce center that assists job-seekers — on Election Day. The Board of County Commissioners recently approved Doty’s request to close six county buildings, most of them DMV centers, to free up parking for voters and to allocate county staff to accommodate anticipated heavy voter turnout on

Nov. 6. “We have limited parking around some of our buildings,” said Arapahoe County Commissioner Susan Beckman. “Our number one goal is to have a successful election and adding parking problems for voters is not going to help us achieve that goal.” Beckman said this is not the first Election Day where the county has opted to close buildings or limited certain services. “We have always done this to some degree in the past, but this year is the most comprehensive.” According to a press release, the county will close the Administration Building, CentrePoint Plaza and the Public Works and Development office at Lima Plaza. County motor vehicle branch offices in Aurora, Byers, Littleton and Centennial will be open for election services, but will not process driver’s license, automo-

The Administration Building will serve as a drop-off site for mail-in ballots and CentrePoint Plaza and Lima Plaza will serve as Vote Center sites on Election Day. The Administration Building, CentrePoint Plaza and Lima Plaza will be open to the public for election-related services only. Recording services also will be available at the Administration Building. All other county buildings, including the Sheriff’s Administration and Coroner’s Facility in Centennial and Human Services at Arapahoe Plaza in Littleton, will be open Nov. 6 to the public as normal. County employees will work as scheduled and may help with election tasks if necessary, such as answering phones,

Because employees will be working the night, Motor Vehicle offices in Aurora, Byers, Centennial and Littleton will reopen to the public at 10 a.m., Wednesday, Nov. 7. Douglas County will also be adjusting office hours and services, but no details have been released yet, according to County spokesperson Wendy Holmes. Denver County residents will not see an impact as its Motor Vehicle offices operate separated from the Clerk and Recorder. “Citizens are not going to be happy if we complicate the election process with parking problems,” said Beckman. “This should help.” For more information regarding hours or about the upcoming election, visit or call 303-7954511.

Warren-Gully devoted to education By Jennifer Smith Democrat Carrie Warren-Gully, a lifelong resident of Arapahoe County, wants to replace term-limited Susan Beckman, a Republican, to represent District 1 as a county commissioner. While this is her first foray into politics, Warren-Gully has been actively involved in education issues for the past Warren-Gully dozen years. She and her husband, Jim, have three sons in Arapahoe High School. A self-described “professional volunteer,” she spearheaded the last mill-levy campaign for Littleton Public Schools, which was successful in spite of the recession. Colorado Community Media asked the following questions of the candidates in the Arapahoe County Board of Commissioners District 1 race. Below are Warren-Gully’s answers. What makes you the best candidate for this office? Born and raised in Arapahoe

County, I’ve been active in our community all my life. Along with my husband, Jim, I’m raising my family here. I believe most of us don’t live our lives based on party labels or political ideologies. We just want a great place to live, work and play. That’s how I’ll approach decisions as a county commissioner: What’s good for our community? I’ve been actively involved in our schools, a strong supporter of open spaces and will be a voice of civility on the board of county commissioners. What do you see as the biggest challenge facing the county and what would you do to meet that challenge? Our number-one priority has to be budget management and the financial health of the county. If you understand an organization’s budget, you understand their programs and their values. Another important role of the board of county commissioners is to provide long-term leadership and vision for the county. County agencies and departments are responsible for day-to-day management and operations.

The commissioners should be looking two, five, 10 years down the road. Law enforcement and other public-safety issues, veterans, helping our most vulnerable citizens, education, business expansion and retention and infrastructure and transportation are all priorities. What can the board of commissioners do to ensure that oil and gas drilling is done responsibly in the county? The state manages oil and gas development and determines well locations, well spacing, well types, noise levels, odor and dust levels. The county oversees transportation, erosion control, use of our local infrastructure, wildlife, water quality and emergency regulations. Our number-one priority must be to protect the health and safety of our citizens and our natural resources. Baseline water testing is essential to monitor any impact on water quality. We also need a policy outlining requirements for activities the county oversees. The policy should then be met by all companies exploring for and producing oil and gas in the county.

the private and public sectors and therefore, I have an excellent understanding of the business community and also how to work within the government structure. My management and financial experience will bring new leadership to the board of county commissioners. During these tough economic times, it is important to have a person in leadership who understands the impact of government regulations on businesses while working for the taxpayers and not imposing additional burdens on those we serve. What do you see as the biggest challenge facing the county and what would you do to meet that challenge? Businesses over the past several years have had to learn to do more with less. Our county government also faces this challenge. Citizens expect exceptional services and responsible use of taxpayer dollars. As county commissioner, I will commit to leading our management teams by helping to determine how

What can the board of commissioners do to ensure that oil and gas drilling is done responsibly in the county? Because Colorado has the most stringent rules on oil and gas at the statewide level, local governments are limited on what they can regulate. Many counties have appropriate regulations and we can and should create regulations around these, borrowing on best practices of other counties where oil and gas development and hydraulic fracturing have occurred. Typically, these are limited to road maintenance, surface water, noise and pollution. Limitations of local involvement have been spelled out by the attorney general’s office.

Disconnecting to stay connected Wow, the other day my whole family was called out by my mother-in-law. She had been staying with us for a while, and one evening she had come into the living room, where she saw everyone in the family with their head down and iPhone, Droid, laptop, or iPad in their hands. Have we really gotten that bad? In retrospect, and unfortunately, the answer is yes. Here we were on a night when I wasn’t traveling and my children weren’t working at their part-time jobs or hanging out with their friends. We were all together in one room and yet totally disconnected. Now typically we leverage the power of technology to stay in touch with calls, Skype video calls, loving text messages, and postings and messages on Facebook because of our conflicting schedules. But I guess we had gotten so used to being connected virtually, maybe, just maybe, we had become disconnected in reality. So I wanted to see if we were the only

Doty has experience, knowledge I don’t normally get excited at election time, but this year I am excited to cast my vote for Nancy Doty for county commissioner in District 1. When Nancy became county clerk and recorder, she inherited a dispirited staff and an office that had been very badly managed. She rebuilt employee trust and morale, brought her public and private management expertise to reorganize the department, and made customer service job one. Nancy will bring her excellent experience and her knowledge of budgeting and auditing to the office of county commissioner. Nancy knows and understands Arapahoe County and will serve the citizens well. Her opponent has virtually no experience in either the public or private sector. Particularly in local elections, I don’t care about the candidate’s party affiliation. I just want to elect the person with who will serve the office in the best and most efficient manner. That person is Nancy Doty. Ray Koernig Littleton

Kerber well-suited for Legislature “We need to start fresh with new leaders who have practical experience and truly understand the challenges people face today.” When I visited Dave Kerber’s (running for state Senate District 26, Littleton, Englewood, Centennial, and Sheridan) website, this sentence jumped out at me. When testifying at the state Legislature, it is surprising to me how few legislators have taken the time to understand that most of what people do want from government is supplied at the local level. An assortment of quality education choices for their children, safety in their neighborhoods, and sensible plans for the growth and maintenance of their communities are all most folks want from the government. Their state legislator should be someone who can balance their local districts needs with that of the rest of the state. Dave Kerber’s experience as a city council person has given him a chance to see government’s impact on communities both good and bad. He has built a business, a family, and a law practice. With the differences in each of HD26 cities it is important to have a senator who

family or people prioritizing our lives around technology and toys instead of focusing on what is truly important, a real connection to one another. And I am sure this will not surprise you, but almost everywhere I looked I found similar behaviors. On a recent trip I was late for a connecting flight, and although I barely made it to the gate on time I was the last one to board the plane. And since I was still stinging from the reality of being disconnected from my family, I was more aware and glanced at people sitting in their seats. Not too long ago you would see people

engaging in conversation and getting to know their seatmates for the next few hours. Now, as I made my way through the cabin, I witnessed more than half the passengers with their ear buds already plugged in, heads down looking at their phone, Kindle, or iPad. Upon arriving at my destination and waiting to meet my party at a restaurant, I saw a family very close in number and ages to my own family. As they sat waiting to be called by the hostess, dad was pacing near the door on a call, mom was texting, the eldest daughter had her iPod on and ear buds in, and their son was playing a game on his smart phone. I had already made a solemn commitment to never text and drive. Well, now I am making the same decision and commitment to never text, email, play backgammon on my phone, or cruise around Facebook if it means missing another opportunity to communicate, connect, or just be with my family or friends. My good friend and author Billy Cox shared a quote with me, “Every min-

ute we spend doing the wrong thing, is one less minute we have to do the right thing.” Don’t get me wrong, I think that technology is awesome, great fun, and absolutely increases productivity when used properly. But going forward, I am going to really consider how and when I will use it, asking myself, “Is this one more minute of doing the wrong thing that will rob me of one more minute of doing the right thing?” Kudos to my mother-in-law, for calling us out. Thanks, Mom. How about you, has technology taken over your relationships or do you disconnect to stay just a little more connected to your family and friends? I would love to hear all about it at and I know that when we do connect it will be a better than good week.

Longtime district attorney backs Feldman I was the elected district attorney for the 18th Judicial District (Arapahoe, Douglas, Elbert and Lincoln counties) from 1969 until 1997. The district attorney is one of the most important offices in the county, as the person in this position sets the tone for the enforcement of the criminal laws within this jurisdiction. The district attorney is the voice of the victim in court, the voice of the community in the criminal justice system and the advocate for adoption of programs to reduce criminal activity. A district attorney should have the personal and professional ethical commitment that is needed to fulfill the trust placed in him or her, be dedicated to achieving justice, be honest beyond reproach and possess the skills to manage a staff of over 220 employees and manage a budget of approximately $19 million. Ethan Feldman was one of my outstanding deputies, and later a chief deputy district attorney handling the most serious cases. Ethan also trained and supervised new deputy district attorneys. He entered private practice and later served as a judge in our district for 20 years. During his entire career, Ethan Feldman has demonstrated those qualities I have listed above, and has the knowledge, ability and character to be an outstanding district attorney and one of whom we can all be proud. I urge you to join me and over 100 present and former prosecutors in supporting Ethan Feldman, and urge you to cast your ballot for him in the upcoming election. Robert Gallagher Greenwood Village

Feldman more qualified candidate This year there is an important race for DA in the 18th Judicial District (Arapahoe, Douglas, Elbert, and Lincoln counties.) The elected district attorney is responsible for the prosecution of all criminal cases within that district. I encourage you to check out the experience of both candidates. I am confident that you will find, as I did, that Ethan Feldman is clearly the more qualified candidate.

As a former prosecutor, defense attorney and judge, Ethan has been honored for his legal knowledge, his judgment, his integrity and his commitment. We have a unique opportunity to vote in a candidate who has the perspective and balance to be a great district attorney. Please join me in voting for Ethan Feldman for district attorney!

Re-elect Bagley to RTD board When my neighborhood recently thought our local bus service was to be reduced or discontinued, we immediately contacted our board representative, Kent Bagley. Kent went right to work and did the necessary research to provide the information we needed.

I’ve followed Kent Bagley’s work as our representative on the RTD board and feel strongly that he deserves re-election to a second term.

Man pleads not guilty GUN & KNIFE SHOW OCT. 20 & 21 SAT 9-5 & SUN 9-4 in death of officer DOUGLAS CO. FAIRGROUNDS • CASTLE ROCK BRING THIS AD FOR $1.00 OFF


Alleged driver set for trial in April By Tom Munds Aurora resident Conner Donohue, accused in a collision that killed an Englewood police officer, appeared in court Oct. 12, where his attorney entered pleas of not guilty to the list of charges Donohue is facing. Attorney John Portman represented Donohue at the arraignment, which concerned charges arising from the May 28 death of Jeremy Bitner. Donohue, accused of being the driver who hit and killed Bitner on South Broadway, was in 18th Judicial District Court to enter a plea for charges ranging from vehicular homicide, a class 3 felony, to two counts of vehicular assault and a charge of leaving the scene of the accident.

There were several lesser charges such as DUI, careless driving and not having proof of insurance. About 20 members of Bitner’s family and the Englewood Police Department were in court for the arraignment, as were four or five members of Donohue’s family. Donohue, who is out of jail on $100,000 bond, looked very different than he did in his first court appearance, when he had a nearly shaved head and was wearing an orange jumpsuit and chains. On Oct.12, he wore a striped shirt, tie and glasses and stood quietly beside his attorneys looking at the judge. After the plea was entered, Judge Marilyn Antrum asked prosecutor Jason Sears for an estimate of trial length. Sears said presentation of arguments, witnesses and evidence probably would take six days. The judge, defense attorneys and prosecutors then began trying to find dates when all parties would be

available for the two-week trial, and tentatively settled on April 9, 2013, for the opening date. The 20-year-old Donohue is alleged to have been drunk at the time of the collision, which occurred just after midnight. Donohue’s car reportedly hit Bitner and motorist Kevin Montoya while they were standing outside Bitner’s patrol car that was pulled to the curb just south of the intersection of Broadway and Belleview. Bitner died later that day. The 20-year-old Montoya, who was injured, was released from Swedish Medical Center on May 29. Donohue reportedly drove away after hitting the two men. A detailed description of the suspect’s vehicle was broadcast to area police agencies. Donohue’s vehicle was seen a short time later several miles from the crash scene. Littleton police stopped the car, arrested Donohue and took him to the Arapahoe County jail.

Cherokee Ranch & Castle Hosts Gothic Author As the days grow shorter, leaves turn crimson and gold, and a chilling wind begins to blow, thoughts more easily turn to the darker side of life. Stories of morbid possibilities and gruesome happenings become more common place at this time of year. Such was the case at the Cherokee Ranch and Castle last week as the organization hosted another performance in its Meet the Author series. Edgar Allan Poe – Dark Whispers of Genius was vividly portrayed by actor David Skipper in period costume. Armed with an encyclopedic knowledge of the gothic author and an appropriately baleful voice, the actor switched between reciting some of Poe’s lesser-known works and thoughtful musings that the author may have had. He began with a reading of the poem Ulalume – one of three poems written as his beloved wife, Virginia, slowly succumbed to consumption, now known as tuberculosis. “The skies they were ashen and sober; The leaves they were crisped and sere— The leaves they were withering and sere; It was night in the lonesome October Of my most immemorial year: It was hard by the dim lake of Auber, In the misty mid region of Weir— It was down by the dank tarn of Auber, In the ghoul-haunted woodland of Weir… Anecdotes about his troubled life “…the dead rest only as long as we remember…”, literary influences that formed him as a writer, poet and critic “…in many literary circles I am known as the Tomahawk Man because of my rather scathing reviews of supposed fellow authors work such as that lick-spickled Longfellow who couldn’t put a sentence together if he had a bag of words,” and the creative writing process “My writing comes from my mind and my spirit, my poetry comes from my heart...” were fodder for the performance. These themes were explored in between readings of both poetry and prose after which questions for the author were taken while still in character. “No sir, I never took drugs. I do, however, suffer from— inebriation from time to time—but have sworn off and am now a temperate man.” After the in-character performance, Skipper took further questions from the audience regarding insights into Poe’s life as well as his death, which is still shrouded in mystery. The actor’s knowledge of Poe and insights into his psyche were as much intriguing as they were enlightening. The fact that the Castle’s last owner, Tweet Kimball was a direct descendant of Poe’s surrogate family (the Allan family) further added to the macabre atmosphere. As is tradition, tours of the citadel were given by foundation docents prior to the performance. Tours are not only educational, but thoroughly enjoyable as history was woven with anecdotes of the former owners giving glimpses into their personal lives. The furnishings, much of which dates back to the 16th & 17th centuries, and the art collection are remarkable especially when paired with the descriptive narrative of the guides. The tours alone are worth the price of admission. Also included was an incredible buffet dinner enjoyed before the performance with a luscious desert and coffee service after capping off the evening’s experience. The Authors Series continues with Julie Pech - The Chocolate Therapist and A Holiday Dinner with Charles Dickens in December. The Cherokee Ranch & Castle Foundation operates the facility hosting a variety of other activities including guided tours, afternoon teas, educational opportunities and special events & weddings. The Foundation also oversees a heard of prize winning Santa Gertrudis on

My husband is Fire Marshal for the City of Littleton. I love the smalltown feel of Littleton with all the benefits of the big city next door. How long have you worked in Real Estate? My father was a custom homebuilder and I worked with him for several years learning home construction from the ground up. When he opened a Real Estate office almost 35 years ago, I followed him!

round a home sale - from contractors to lenders to difficult family situations. You must have experience, knowledge, and be proactive to keep transactions together. What do you most enjoy doing when you’re not working? Time with family and friends! Grandkids make any day a perfect day. I enjoy travel and staying at our houses in Arizona and Florida.

What is one tip you have for someone looking to buy a house? Location, location, location!! Many things can be upgraded after you move into a home, but not location. What is the most unusual thing you’ve encountered while working in Real Estate? After 30+ years in this business, there have been a lot! Most memorable was visiting a home prior to closing only to find that all the hot-water heating pipes had burst and water was running out of the ceilings. There was a foot of water in the basement! The sellers fixed it and we closed about two weeks later. From Left to right: The extended Hofstra Fmily; Kathy Hofstra; My Husband and me

nterest rates now are near 60year lows. People are securing 30-year loans under 4 percent and 15-year loans in the low 3-percent range. This makes owning a home much more affordable and is why we are seeing significant increases in home purchases and mortgage refinances. The ultra low rate environment is being driven by the uncertainty of the whole European situation, where a number of banks and countries are teetering on default,

Home for Sale

coupled with a very slow growing U.S. economy and a job market that is barely maintaining positive momentum now. Because of this uncertainly and a slowdown in economies in China and Asia, people are seeking a safe haven for their funds and are driving the U.S. Treasury to record lows. In fact, it appears if you add back inflation, people are actually accepting negative returns on their U.S. Treasury bond investments as they are more concerned about a return of their investment than a return on their investment. So now is the perfect time to look at refinancing or purchasing because of the low rates, and two, because of the number of refinancing programs now available that focus on allowing people to refinance homes, even if their value has declined.

which will go on my wall with the other autographs I have collected.” This is the second year former Broncos players have attended the event. This year, Evans and Manning were joined by Larry Brunson and Frank Robinson. The men joined the crowd for dinner and posed for dozens of photos with those attending the fling. The former Broncos also stepped up to help the foundation’s live auction as the athletes became an auction item by agreeing to be part of foursomes rounds of golf at Broken Tee at Englewood Golf Course. The foundation was born about 20 years ago when then-school administrator Larry Nisbet met with a group of supporters seeking ways to help the schools. The end result was the creation of the Englewood Education Foundation. The organization established the process needed to raise donations of money and materials to support school programs not funded through the district budget. The initial foundation project was awarding creativity grants, which provide full or partial funding for projects that aren’t budget items. A few years later, the scholarships were added, but a lot of focus remained on the creativity grants.

ever, both of those buildings will undergo major renovations. The campus transformation will cost about $40 million that is available because voters gave the district approval to sell bonds. Work now will begin on phase one construction that will build about 65 percent of the project. This phase will include construction of what will become the middle school facility on the north end of the site. The construction also will include most of the common areas like science labs that, when the project is completed, will be used by both high school and middle school students. Phase one is tentatively scheduled to be completed by November 2013. The next phase will involve moving the high school students, teachers and classrooms to the newly constructed middle school building. That is tentatively scheduled to happen over the winter break in 2013. Shifting the high school classes to the new building is necessary so the remaining high school buildings can be demolished. That makes way for construction of the final 35 percent of the project. The demolition of the main high school building and completion of the remainder of the project is scheduled to begin in January 2014 and be completed by November of that year.

Discount stores add to retail options Savers, Dollar Tree doing brisk business in Highlands Ranch By Jane Reuter

info: 303.347.0383

sponsored by: horizon christian fellowship

In affluent Douglas County, the phrase “discount store” was synonymous with retailers like Nordstrom Rack. No longer. Savers secondhand store and the Dollar Tree recently opened side-byside near the intersection of Quebec Street and C-470 in Highlands Ranch, and both report strong early sales. Business at Savers has been “fantastic,” said the store’s retail sales manager Tammy Forbes, a fact she attributes at least as much to the pleasure of bargain shopping as the slowly recovering economy. “Do you know how much fun it is to come in here and find an Ann Taylor for $7.99?” Industry statistics show plenty of people share Forbes’ definition of fun. The resale industry has grown by 7 percent in the past two years, with annual revenues of about $13 billion, according to NARTS, an association for those in the resale industry. Their research shows today’s thrift-store devotees cross all economic levels, including those drawn by economic necessity, green shoppers who prefer recycled goods to new, and shopping hobbyists lured by the thrill of a find. Shoppers at the Highlands Ranch Savers support those findings. “Even when I wasn’t a stay-athome mom and had disposable income, I still would come to secondhand stores,” said Centennial resident Connie Russell, shopping with her baby boy. “I like finding a bargain.” Savers joins Plato’s Closet, Uptown Cheapskate and a handful of consignment shops already in business in the Highlands Ranch area. The Dollar Tree, meanwhile, is the first dollar store in Highlands Ranch — a community in which the $104,000 median household income is twice the state and national aver-

Centennial resident Connie Russell displays one of her Savers’ finds during an Oct. 9 shopping excursion with her son at the new Highlands Ranch store. Photo by Jane Reuter ages. Both stores are welcome additions to the area’s retail landscape, said Highlands Ranch Chamber of Commerce LaRae Marsik. “We have it all in Highlands Ranch from discount options to amazing luxury retailers,” she said. “It speaks to the diversity of taste and clientele we serve. Whether they live, work and play in Highlands Ranch, or whether they travel through the community to some other destination, there’s a really interesting combination and diverse mix to meet all those tastes.” Adding such stores also keeps tax dollars stay in the community, she said. “People were already shopping

that way,” Marsik said. “Now we’re not losing business to other areas that may have had more variety in that discount sphere.” Highlands Ranch resident Shelley West is a living example of that. Once a mall shopper, she now steers clear of the crowds, costs and parking issues she found there in favor of discount retailers like TJ Maxx and Ross. Until the Highlands Ranch Savers opened, she’d never before shopped at the thrift store chain. But logic will bring her back, she said, holding up a near-new toddlersized dress. “Especially for my grandchildren, it doesn’t make sense to buy new,” she said, adding with a smile: “It’s always good to get that bargain.”

Boulder bombs on booze biz Is Boulder crying in its beer? While the burg may have thought it would get the only Trader Joe’s in Colorado with a liquor license, Denver snagged that shot. When both stores open next year, Denver customers will be able to buy liquor and check out in an attached area of the store. The grocery and liquor sections will share a common entrance, but liquor sales must be completed separately. How did Denver grab the liquor biz from Boulder? “We’re a better and bigger market so they can sell more (liquor) here,” said a source close to the deal. “Our process (to obtain a liquor license) is faster and cleaner, and Boulder blabbed about getting a liquor store. Denver kept its mouth shut.” The initial hearing — the first step in the liquor license process — will be held at 9 a.m. Oct. 26. The store will have to jump through a few city-required hoops before getting the final sign-off. Both Boulder and Denver Trader Joe’s stores are expected to open around the same time next year.

“The Child’s Wish of Peace” is by Nguyen Diem Vy, age 4. It is on display at Arapahoe Community College. Courtesy images

“Peace” was created by Chau Thien An, age 7.

Bonanno in the ‘burbs “Peaceful Country” is by Huznh Vu Thuy Duong, age 15.

Exhibit aims for the gut Vietnamese children’s art spurs responses By Sonya Ellingboe Arapahoe Community College’s Colorado Gallery of the Arts hosts an exhibit that intends to stimulate an emotional response from its viewers: “Speak Peace: American Voices Respond to Vietnamese Children’s Paintings.” It will open from 5-7 p.m. Oct. 19 with a public reception that features music, refreshments and dramatic readings of the exhibit’s poems by members of the ACC Creative Writing faculty, various Colorado poets and Eliot Wilson. Brightly colored paintings are framed with poems that respond to them. Poems were written by young children, teens, college students and older amateur and professional poets — and they range in skill and mood as the paintings do. The exhibit was organized by the Wick Poetry Center at Kent State University, where four people were killed 42 years ago in and near a student protest of the Vietnam War.

Nicole Robinson, program and outreach coordinator for the Wick Poetry Center, will speak about the inception and growth of the exhibit. Paintings came from the War Remnants Museum in Ho Chi Minh City, following a suggestion from Dr. Edward Tick, founder of Soldier’s Heart, a veterans’ return and healing organization, who started conversations in summer 2009 with Kent State’s Anderson Turner. In January 2010, the Wick Poetry Center put 70 digital images online, inviting poetry in response. It received more than 1,200 submissions from across the nation — from individuals and classes who wrote a joint piece. “This is a place where art and artists have played in all cultures throughout time,” wrote David Hassler, the poetry center’s director. Among the paintings: “Together Protect Peace” by 15-year-old Ta Thauk Khue: four hands hover around a delicate paper crane, a peace symbol. Heidi Hart, a Quaker, teacher and poet wrote “Reverse Folds”: “My son teaches me to fold a paper crane, Crease here, undo … How long To wait for peace, for grief’s slow work to mold

Into a shape the palm can hold, as delicate As wings? My son folds by memory. `I made five today,’ he says, `have to be patient ….’” “Peace” shows cats napping on a tank in a pastoral setting. It’s a watercolor by 7-year-old Chau Thien An, which drew Kent high school teacher Jeffrey Harr to write: “Cats nap On a tank that’s traded firepower for flower power, the roar of war for the soft purr of peace. A nice place to sleep, if you’re lucky — nine lifetimes of violence. Others we noted were “A Friendship World” by Nguyen Duc Danh, age 13, and “Peaceful Country” by Huznh Vu Thuy Duong, age 15, which depicts a water buffalo lying in a green setting, with a black and white bird on its back. The exhibit runs through Nov. 13 and is open noon-5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays; until 7 p.m. on Tuesdays. Admission is free. The Colorado Gallery of the Arts is in the Annex at the east side of the main campus, 5900 S. Santa Fe Drive, Littleton.

Frank Bonanno, one of Denver’s top restaurateurs with such stellar eateries such as Mizuna, Luca d’ Italia, Osteria Marco, Lou’s Food Bar and Russell’s Smoke House, is putting a pizza place in the ‘burbs, according to a blog post by 5280 magazine. According to the posting, Bonanno will take over the shuttered Counter space and open Bonanno Brothers Pizzeria in The Vistas at Park Meadows, the outdoor shopping area next to Park Meadows Mall.

BY THE NUMBERS Number of points allowed by the Kent De n v e r football team this season.



of state championships C h e r r y Creek High School has won in its history. The boys tennis team won title No. 200 on Oct. 13.

Pirates bid for grid win against Weld Central Englewood goes on the road looking to snap three-game losing streak


Bennett at Kent Denver, Friday, 3:30 p.m. The Class 2A Colorado League championship will be up for grabs when the Tigers (6-1, 3-0) take on the Sun Devils (70, 3-0) in a game that features two of the top rushing attacks, not to mention two very stingy defensive units.

By Tom Munds Coach Jay Graves called on his players to forget the 51-6 loss to rival Elizabeth and to focus intently on getting ready to go after a win Oct. 19 on the road at Weld Central. “We are young and we are a little beat up but we will not give up,” Graves said after the Oct. 12 Elizabeth game. “I want the guys to make it a matter of pride for us to return to playing Pirate football and winning games. The first step will be Weld Central, a team I feel we match up well against.” Weld Central comes into the Oct. 19 game with a 3-4 overall record and a 2-0 league record. They have won their last three games. Last week. They rolled to a 33-12 win over Vista Peak. Rebels quarterback Brandon Blackstone completed three of seven passes for 45 yards. But, the bulk of the offense came on the ground as Weld Central rushed for 310 yards. Tyler Neblsick was the rushing leader with 22 carries for 158 yards. The Rebels were tough defensively as the basically kept Vista Peak in check for most of the game and they forced three turnovers, two interceptions and one fumble. The Englewood-Weld Central game will be played Oct. 19 at Weld Central High School. The kickoff is at 7 p.m. and admission is $5 for adults and $3 for students with school identification. Last week, Englewood got off to a quick start against Elizabeth. The Pirates received the kickoff and, on the second play from scrimmage, they ran a counter play with Kamal Johnson slashing off the right side of the formation. The blocking opened a hole and blockers cleared the way so Johnson could turn on the jets and go 78 yards for a touchdown. Unfortunately, that proved to be Englewood’s highlights for the game as Eliz-

Photo by Tom Munds abeth took control of the game and went on to win, 51-6. In the third quarter, it appeared the Pirates scored again as Greg Pearson evaded would-be tacklers and ran 73 yards to the end zone. Unfortunately, the TD was called back because of a penalty that happened well behind the play. “We are banged up right now and have three freshmen starting on our line,” Coach Graves said after the game. “We also are missing our senior team leader Damasjae Currington who is out with an injury. We might get him back for Weld Central and, if that happens, it will be a big lift for us.” He repeated that this is a young team and the players need to keep working hard to get better every week. “We want to win some more games and we are at the point in the schedule where that could happen,” the coach said. “We just have to keep focused, play our brand of Pirate football and we should get some more wins before the season is over.” Injuries have plagues the Pirates this season. Against Elizabeth, defensive lineman Matt Hiibschman suffered what is called a stinger in his neck. It is like a pinched nerve and, while it isn’t serious enough to keep him off the field, it is a painful, nagging ailment.

“It was tough up front tonight,” Hiibschman said. “It was a battle and they were quick so it was hard to get off their blocks and their runners were good too.” He said he has been playing defensive lineman since the sixth grade. He said that is where he likes to be even though the guy across the line frequently has a size and weight advantage since Hiibschman is 5-7 and 155 pounds. “I like defensive line because it isn’t a complicated position to play,” he said. “Basically, you just try to read the play so you can get in and tackle the ball carrier,” he said. “I like it on the line because you get to hit people every play. That’s fun.” Freshman Kevin Mahler is one of the freshmen starting on the line for the Pirates. “It is a big step as a freshman for me to be playing regularly with the varsity,” he said after the game. “It was a steep learning curve to learn the varsity plays because they are different than the JV plays. But, getting this varsity playing experience gives me confidence when I do get to play JV. This playing experience also gives me confidence that I can compete for a starting varsity spot next season.” He said, in the off season, he will spend a lot of time in the weight room to get stronger for next season.

The softball season wraps up with the twoday tournament to determine the state’s best.

THEY SAID IT “Honestly, the team title means more than the individual title. Before the finals we all talked about trying to win those matches against Fairview because they were so close to us in points. We really wanted to bring home another star title to our school and I’m glad I was able to be a part of this team.” Cherry Creek No. 2 singles player Connor McPherson

Volleyball team battles through tough season

Pirates play hard but have only won three matches so far this season

By Tom Munds

Coach Ken Anderson said the Englewood High School volleyball season hasn’t come close to his preseason expectations. “I thought we would be competitive but it hasn’t worked out that way,” he said during the Oct. 15 practice. “The season hasn’t even come close to my expectations.” He said even though some of the athletes had played varsity volleyball, generally the team didn’t understand that it is a faster game than they are used to be playing. “Success in varsity volleyball requires every player be on her toes constantly, always on the move and learn how to read an opponent,” he said. “We just haven’t reached that level of understanding of the game yet.’ The Pirates were at home Oct. 20 for the final home match of the year. Englewood closes out the regular season with an Oct. 23 road game against Machebeuf and an Oct. 27 road game against Vista Peak. Coming into the week, Englewood had a 3-16 overall record and they were winless in nine league matches. “The varsity has struggled and so had the JV,” Anderson said. “But the freshman team has played pretty well and they have a lot of potential. The challenge is to have a good understanding of the speed of play, learn to play as a team and how to play the game.” The coach said the real understanding of the game of volleyball comes with on-court experience against good opponents. “Many of our athletes play more than one sport for Englewood,” he said. “I think that is a good thing but playing other sports doesn’t prepare our players to go up against athletes who focus on volleyball and play on club teams most of the year.” He said the problems that crop up means Englewood don’t win many matches which, in turn, do not inspire the team’s confidence. He said a couple wins would be a big boost for this team. The coach said the team should have a lot of potential next year because there are only five seniors on the roster.

Coach Anderson said several players have done much better than he expected like Anna Schultz and Elizabeth Coleman. Coleman, a senior, is playing varsity volleyball for the first time. She is a front-line specialist as a hitter. “This has been a fun season. We would like to have won some matches but it has been fun anyway,” she said. “I think the most fun is being part of the team. It is great to be on the court with the other players.” She said one of her favorite things about volleyball is placing a well-hit ball. “It is fun to get up and hit the ball in bounds with a

lot of power,” she said. “Getting a good set and driving the ball to the floor may be the best feeling in the world.” She said her first three seasons at Englewood, grades were a problem for her and she wasn’t able to play. “The biggest improvement I have made is my grades,” Coleman said. “When it comes to volleyball, I think the biggest improvement has been getting my timing down so I can be at the peak of my jump when I spike the ball. I am doing that more consistently this year. It really feels good to make the hit because I hope every hit helps my team.”

Englewood Pirates readies for cross country regionals Oct. 17

Bruins blast Buffaloes

Regional meet at Clement Park determines who goes to the state meet

By Daniel P. Johnson

By Tom Munds The light at the end of the tunnel looms large as the Englewood High School cross country team prepares for the Oct. 18 meet that will determine if the season is over or if there are Pirates who will head to state Oct. 27 in Colorado Springs. The regional meet will be run over a very difficult, hilly course at Clement Park which is on Bowls Avenue and Pierce Street. This year’s Class 4A regionals includes teams from Alameda, Arvada, Conifer, D’Evelyn, Elizabeth, Englewood, Evergreen, Golden, Green Mountain, Mullen, Ponderosa, Valor Christian and Wheat Ridge. There are separate races for boys and girls. In each race, the top five teams in the standings as well as any runners from non-qualifying teams who finish in the top 15 will qualify for state. A school must enter at least five runners but can enter up to nine. However, only the points earned by that squad’s first five finishers count toward the team’s score. Englewood ran in the league meet last week. The boys finished third and the girls finished sixth in the team-score standings. Assistant coach Stu Howard said the Pirates ran well and times were good. He said, after the league meet, the practice schedule will taper down. “We’ll do some runs and we’ll do a little speed work,” he said. “In speed work, they will do hard runs for 800 meters, then slow down then go hard again. Practices will begin to be lighter to give the runners the opportunity to rest and be fresh going into regionals.” Chad Glover set the pace for the Pirates at the league meet as he finished sixth with a time of 16:49. “I decided to take up cross c0untry when I was in eighth grade,” he said. “I was close to one of the assistant coaches, my friend was running cross country, and I had never played any kind of sport so I decided to give it a try.”

He said he wasn’t an athlete and it was very rough at first as it was a struggle to get in shape to run the five kilometers without stopping. “I didn’t want to quit so I kept pushing myself,” he said. “There is a quote that says you might wonder what you are doing out there but it comes back to the satisfaction and fulfilling to finish a race or a hard workout.” He said he finished his first race but the time was very slow. He said persistence has helped him as he worked to improve his times. “If you want to get better, you have to get out and run every day, even when you don’t want to run,” Glover said. “I like running. I think it is a time to relax and get refreshed.” He said his goal is to run a 17:20 race at regionals because he said that pace has at least a chance to qualify him to go to state. Glover was the first Englewood runner across the finish line at the league meet. Eric Almanzar was 11th and ran a 17:36 and Tucker Horan was 16th and ran an 18:21. He was followed by Mitch McDonald (18:35), Cole Horan (20:53 and Luis Bayulon-Morales (24:02). Maddie Avjean is part of the girls team this year. She said she was encouraged to join the team as an eighth-grader but it was rough at the start as she was slowed by injuries. “I like to run. It clears my mind and my whole family has been runners,” she said. “When I am running the full course, about half the time, I keep about how much I would like to quit. But I feel I have come so far, I right as well finish. Actually, I don’t remember finishing because I am just glad the race is over.” The senior said she will run track this spring. “I like track and my favorite event is the 400-meter run,” she said. “I like it because it isn’t a sprint but it isn’t a long-distance race. It’s just the right distance to have fun and push hard.” Mason Brainard was the Pirate leader at the league meet as she finished 14th with a time of 21:56. She was followed by Kadie Kavinsky in 24th spot with a time of 23:13 and Natalie Pena who was 25 with a time of 23:25. The other Pirate girls in the race included Shawna Eldridge (23:48) and Avjean (26:09).

Cherry Creek creeps closer to Centennial League title GREENWOOD VILLAGE – Cherry Creek’s goal when it takes the football field is short, simple and to the point: Be better than you were last week. The Bruins have made great strides from their 0-2 start and, thanks to a 35-7 victory over Smoky Hill on Oct. 12 at the Stutler Bowl, have now won five-straight games and are within reach of the Class 5A Centennial League championship. Cherry Creek (5-2, 3-0 Centennial League) can clinch no worse than a share of the league championship with a victory Oct. 28 at Grandview (4-3, 2-1). “(Grandview) is an extremely important game,” said Cherry Creek quarterback Luke Papilion, who had a big game against the Buffaloes, completing 18-of24 passes for 241 yards with three touchdowns. “It’s been a long time since Cherry Creek has won the league title. We’ve won five straight and are playing at good level, but we want to keep doing what we’re doing and keep improving each and every week.” The Bruins controlled the game against the Buffaloes (3-4, 0-3) from the outset and led 14-0 after the first

quarter and 28-0 by halftime. After the Homecoming ceremonies, the offense continued rolling right along in the second half as Papilion threw a 21-yard touchdown pass to Mikey McCauley that extended the Bruin lead to 35-0 early in the third quarter and ushered in the second-string. “It felt good to open things up offensively,” said Papilion, who also connected with Joseph Parker IV (38 yards) and Khaleo Buckmon (3 yards) on scoring passes. “I thought that everyone did a great job of executing, from the line to the backs to the receivers; I can’t be successful without my teammates, and they were great (Oct. 12).” Papilion’s big night allowed running back Tahj Willingham to get some rest, although he still managed to rack up 94 yards and a pair of touchdowns on his nine carries. Defensively, the Bruins were stout; they allowed just two first downs in the first half. “We’re plugging away and trying to get better,” Cherry Creek coach Dave Logan said. “We’re a young team and it was Homecoming week and there are a lot of distractions that come along with that, but I thought our effort and focus were good.” While the Homecoming win and five-straight wins are nice, Logan already had his eyes set on the next game. “(Grandview) is a good team,” Logan said. “It’s going

Historic win for Cherry Creek Boys tennis wins school’s 200th state championship By Daniel P. Johnson

d j o h n s o n @ o u rc o l o r a DENVER Cherry Creek’s Connor McPherson knows Fairview’s Ignatius Castelino quite well. The two have run into each other at various United States Tennis Association tournaments, not to mention competing for their respective schools. In the 2012 season, McPherson had come up short against Castelino in their two prior meetings, but the Cherry Creek junior had a big shot at redemption in the No. 2 singles final of the Class 5A boys tennis state tournament on Oct. 13 at Gates Tennis Center. With steady groundstrokes and quick footwork, McPherson was able to grind out a 6-3, 6-2 victory that not only earned him his first victory over Castelino, but a state championship as well. “It feels amazing,” McPherson said. “This is my third title and I really had to work hard for it because Ignatius is a great player. I felt on I was re-

ally on my game (Oct. 13) and played really consistent.” McPherson’s win over Castelino was a pivotal victory for Cherry Creek, which entered the final day of the tournament just six points ahead of Fairview in the race for the team title. The Bruins would win three out of the four head-to-head matchups against the Knights and that clinched the team’s 38th state championship in the last 41 years. The state championship also proved to be the 200th in Cherry Creek history. “Honestly, the team title means more than the individual title,” McPherson said. “Before the finals we all talked about trying to win those matches against Fairview because they were so close to us in points. We really wanted to bring home another state title to our school and I’m glad I was able to be a part of this team.” Senior Will Ro won the No. 3 singles title, as he defeated Fairview’s Alec Leddon in straight sets 6-1, 6-4. “It feels great, especially being a senior,” Ro said. Ro felt that his prior

experience at the state tournament was an advantage. “I knew (Leddon) was a freshman,” Ro said. “Getting off to a quick start was big for me because I was able to just settle in and treat (the final) like a regular match.” The No. 2 doubles team of Connor Petrou and Jake Miller lost the first set to Arapahoe, but rallied to win the next two to win the state title 5-7, 6-3, 6-4. Dan Kapriellian and Noah Reiss defeated Fairview’s Ben Krahenbuhl and Nick Blanco in straight sets to win the N0. 3 doubles championship. Gifford Mellick and Harshii Dwivedi also topped Fairview in the No. 4 doubles final, bringing home the team’s fifth individual title.

Arapahoe finishes third in team standings

Arapahoe boys tennis coach Jake Keller thought his team was capable of a top-four finish at the 5A state tournament. His players proved him right, and then some. Buoyed by strong doubles play and a thirdplace finish at No. 2 singles by Nick Farmen, the Warriors wound up placing third in the team standings behind Cherry Creek and Fairview. “This is great for Arapahoe tennis,” said Keller,

whose team won the 5A Region 4 tournament a week prior to state. “I thought the team played outstanding tennis, and that’s what you want is for your team to be peaking going into the biggest tournament of the year.” The Warriors were able to play their best tennis at state in large part due to the difficult and demanding schedule Keller set up for them. “I made the schedule tougher on purpose,” Keller said. “I wanted our guys going up against the top teams in the state. I wasn’t as focused on the results of those matches; I wanted the guys to get that experience of playing in big matches against tough competition. “The last three weeks we were playing three-tofour matches a week … that’s a lot of tennis. But, it really paid off because the guys were ready for state.” Arapahoe’s No. 2 doubles team of Chad Curd and Michael Vartuli advanced all the way to the finals of their bracket, and played Cherry Creek’s Connor Petrou and Jake Miller. Curd and Vartuli won the first set 7-5 but dropped the second 6-3. The third set saw Cherry Creek jump out to a 4-1 lead before rain hit the courts at Gates Tennis Center. The match was

eventually restarted and while the Warriors rallied, they ultimately came up short as the Bruins won the decisive set, 6-4. “We always seem to win a lot of first sets against Creek,” Keller said. “They are a very patient team and very consistent.” Farmen was the top singles finisher for Arapahoe, placing third after defeating Chanon Penvari from Regis Jesuit 6-2, 6-1. At No. 3 doubles, Jake Becker and Dylan Panis played their way to a third-place finish. They defeated Fossil Ridge in the third-place match 6-4, 6-4. John Nelson and Matt Swearringen won their first round match at No. 4 doubles over Poudre 6-2, 7-5, but were eliminated by the Regis Jesuit team of Noah Warren and Joe Robertson in the quarterfinals 6-2, 5-7, 7-5. Michael Sisnowski lost to eventual state champion Hayden Sabatka of Highlands Ranch at No. 1 singles in the quarterfinals 6-2, 6-1. Zach Cohen and Jeff Craig had a good run in the No. 1 doubles bracket, advancing to the semifinals before losing to Cherry Creek in three sets 3-6, 6-3, 6-1. At No. 3 singles, Connor Blanks fell to Caleb Gartner of Grand Junction in the opening round.

Regis Jesuit turns in sixth-place performance

The Raiders from Regis Jesuit turned in a solid showing at the state tournament and wound up finishing sixth in the team standings. The No. 4 doubles team of Warren and Robertson had the best finish for the team, as they placed third overall. Warren and Robertson defeated Grand Junction 6-4, 6-3 in the third-place match. Penvari reached the quarterfinals at No. 2 singles before being eliminated by eventual state champion, McPherson of Cherry Creek 6-2, 6-1. He advanced through the playback draw and took on Farmen of Arapahoe for third-place, but lost in straight sets 6-2, 6-1.

Skate party to benefit music program

Strings Attached gets funds from Littleton event By Tom Munds Organizers hope there will be a lot of wheels whizzing around the rink at the Oct. 22 skating party to raise funds for the Strings Attached program. The skate party will be held from 6-8 p.m. at Skate City Littleton, 5801 S. Lowell Blvd. Admission to skate is $4.50, and it costs an additional $1.50 to rent skates. Owners can bring and use their own wheels, including in-line skates. Strings Attached is a program or thirdthrough seventh-graders and adults who are learning to play the violin, viola or cello by taking voluntary after-school lessons. “This is the second year we have had the skate party fundraiser,” said Clementina Martins, program volunteer. “We had a pretty good turnout and we are hoping for that again this year. The idea is to have some fun skating and, at the same time, raise some money for our program.” Ben Tompkins, instructor and program director, said he has 109 students enrolled in Strings Attached this year. That is 11 less than last year, but he noted some of the older students now are taking part in the elementary school orches-

Strings Attached students prepare for last year’s concert. The program that offers voluntary violin, viola and cello lessons receives a portion of its funding from the Englewood Education Foundation. The program also is holding an Oct. 22 all school skate party fund raiser. File photo tra program. He noted the program also added the opportunity to learn to play the viola this year and he hopes to offer bass lessons in the near future. Tompkins created an orchestra last year as a way to keep older student involved in instrumental music. He said he is pleased that the number of musicians

Wink offers singular view

where quality and reputation are rock solid


Longtime artist holds Town Hall exhibit


By Sonya Ellingboe


Starting in her childhood, Sharon Wink loved to draw , and paint — to create. Art was her favorite subject, and as she puts it: “I was able to produce fairly accurate representations of people, animals and environments around me, but my efforts lacked the emotional impact that comes from looking into and being subsumed by another world.” In today’s paintings, she said, she strives continually to create the feeling of becoming one with another world. “For me, the creative process is the product. While painting, I enter a different environment where I live temporarily.” Wink is well-known in the community because of her long stint as director of counseling at Arapahoe Community College. She was an active member of the Town

and Gown Society, started by Littleton Independent editor Houstoun Waring to provide interaction between higher education and the Littleton community. Her one-woman exhibit, “Passing the Torch,” will be in the Stanton Gallery at Town Hall Arts Center from Oct. 23 through Jan 8. Since she retired, she has painted in watercolor, attending a number of workshops with well-recognized teachers, and is a Signature member of the Colorado Watercolor Society. She also belongs to the Painted Toe Society, a group of artists who meet on Mondays in Golden, and she paints with other artist friends at least one other day a week. She has focused on figure and portrait painting, capturing individuals and groups, and the upcoming show will display a selection of 30 portraits, “ranging from facial to full-figure impressions of children and seniors … I prefer to paint the interactions of landscapes, people and animals in a representational style.” An artist’s reception will be from 3-5 p.m. Oct. 27.
