Crowd joins Santa for breakfast Englewood event includes pancakes, visit with St. Nick By Tom Munds

tmunds@ourcoloradonews.com Red and white seemed to be the favorite colors Dec. 8 as families gathered at the Malley Senior Recreation Center to have a pancake breakfast and take children to see Santa. Dozens of young volunteers wearing Santa hats made sure there were place settings, butter and syrup at every seat and quickly moved in to clear the space when a family left. Older volunteer were on hand to help people get their drinks, while in the kitchen the cooks were kept busy flipping hot cakes and preparing the scrambled eggs

and ham to quickly serve families in order to keep the line moving. The holiday spirit was reflected in the songs on the public address system and in the music played by the members of the Colorado Flute Association. At the tables, parents urged their children to eat, but most children were less interested in food and more interested in heading down the hall to visit with Santa. “This is a great event,” Sandra Pollock said as she and her daughter waited to see Santa. “My daughter takes dance classes at the recreation center and I read about this event. I’m so glad we came. Alice is 5 and wanted to see Santa, and this is so much better than fighting the crowds at the mall.” The family got a number as they checked in at the gym where Santa and his helpers were set up. There were Christmas videos on a big screen, as well as the opportunity to make a green and red paper chain or color a picture, to keep the children busy until

it was time to get in line to visit Santa. Santa greeted each child and posed for a picture that was printed and given to the child’s parents. Sometimes he posed with two or three children. But each child had a chance to talk to Santa. On the way off the platform they received a gift bag with a toy, candy cane and some other gifts. Sarah Hopkins, 7, held tightly to her sister Tina’s hand as they left after seeing Santa. “It was fun,” the Sheridan girl said. “Mom brought us this morning and she’s excited because this is Tina’s first visit to Santa. She wouldn’t get on his lap unless I held her hand. But she told Santa what she wanted and so did I. Santa was really nice and we had a good time. Tina was too excited to eat when we came in so we came to see Santa first. I don’t know about her but I am hungry and ready to eat.”

Plans for transforming Englewood Middle School into the new campus for Colorado’s Finest Alternative High School were outlined at a Dec. 4 meeting for middle school neighbors. The renovation is part of the major school district project that includes creating a seventh- through 12th-grade campus on the Englewood High School site. When that project is completed in 2014, Englewood Middle School students will move into the new campus and Colorado’s Finest Alternative High School will relocate to the remodeled middle school building at 300 W. Chenango Ave. Creating the new campus will use $40 million from in voter-approved bonds. The middle school project will use $8 million in bond money as matching funds for a state Renovation continues on Page 22

Street closure notices will likely go up Jan. 6, and the 3400 block of South Clarkson Street is proposed to be closed to through traffic by Jan. 21. Craig Hospital requested the closure for its $90 million remodeling and expansion plans, so the ground can be leveled and the east and west buildings can be connected. Part of the project will increase patient space. The additional space will only add a few beds and is being done primarily so all patients will be in private rooms, instead of two or three to a room. Following meetings and a public hearing where concerns were raised about the proposal, the city council approved the street closure. Rick Kahm, public works director, explained the proposed timeline at the Dec. 3 city council study session. He said plans call for a temporary traffic turnaround to be built on Clarkson south of the Craig bridges over the street. The turnaround is scheduled to be completed and construction safety fencing erected around the north end of Clarkson by Feb. 11. Demolition for work on the north addition is scheduled to begin Feb. 18 and the remodeling and expansion project is scheduled to begin March 4. Kahm said Craig is anxious to get the project started. He said issues that must be addressed prior to the closure include getting signs in place, rerouting the Art Shuttle and establishing routes vehicle routes to the Swedish Medical Center emergency room. Kahm said plans are to make the portion of Old Hampden Avenue between Clarkson and Logan a hospital zone with a 20 mph limit. He said the new speed limit signs will be installed and there will be pedestriantriggered flashing lights at all the hospital zone intersections. The city also wants to install radar signs informing drivers of their speed, but the cost is about $20,000 and the city is working with Craig and Swedish, seeking assistance in covering the cost. About 7,000 feet of fiber optic cable for city traffic cameras will be installed and the cable order could take four to six weeks to be delivered. The city and hospital representatives also are working on rerouting the Art Shuttle. The proposal is for the eastbound shuttle to go north on Logan then east on Girard, where it will join the existing route at Clarkson and Girard. Tentatively, the stop on Hampden between Pennsylvania and Pearl will be moved to the southwest corner of Girard and Pennsylvania. Also, the Clarkson stop will be moved to the southwest corner of Clarkson and Girard. Kahm said Craig Hospital will pay for moving the stops and printing new route maps. Also, there will be advance notices of the changes posted on the shuttle buses and at the affected stops. Kahm said plans are to have everything done except the speed limit signs installed before Clarkson is closed. Council Member Jill Wilson said she was excited about the project, but she wanted to make sure the promise was kept to monitor traffic, with mitigating steps taken if there is increased traffic on streets in the neighborhoods surrounding the project.

Some crimes do harm to us all Kimber Schneider, 42, mother of two, can close her eyes and still see his face, the brown hair, the jean jacket. Gene Martin. Last seen in August 1984 while delivering newspapers in Des Moines. Five days shy of his 14th birthday, he disappeared, never to be found. He rode the same school bus as Schneider, then in middle school. “It has shaped how far I let my kids go out of my bubble,” she said. “And I didn’t think it would.” But how could it not. One moment, a child is here, walking to school, playing in the park, carefree, believer of good. The next instant: Vanished. Innocence lost. Trust — in the world — broken. For the family and friends left behind, the horror never ends. And in today’s world, it implants terror in the hearts and minds of parents everywhere. As parents, where do we draw the line between fear and faith, protectiveness and independence? Where do we go when a child, like little Jessica Ridgeway, is abducted on her way to school, then killed in a most terrible way? We do what parents have always done. We grieve, because we can almost imagine what that loss would feel like. We worry, because what if it happened to our child? We reassess parenting methods and teach vigilance better than before. And, we try to remind ourselves that good is more abundant than evil. Fear cannot win. The black-and-white clarity of statistical data also helps balance the tilting anxiety between possibility and probability. Consider that the probability of a child being abducted by a stranger is about one in 650,000, slightly less than the odds

of dying by fireworks discharge, said Dr. Kim Gorgens, a clinical psychologist at the University of Denver who teaches the psychology of criminal behavior. The numbers come from federal justice and health studies. “Statistically speaking, kids are fairly safe, all things considered,” said Gorgens, who has an 11-year-old son. “The difference is the availability of media and information overload about safety risks.” Google news alerts on the Internet. Radio. TV. Text-message updates on phones. Facebook posts. The constant stream of news is inescapable when something bad happens today. The immediacy, in cases such as Jessica’s, overwhelmingly creates a sense that evil lurks in the corners and, even, wide-open spaces of communities we suddenly no longer consider safe. Bad things have always happened. My neighbor remembers the sexual assault of a classmate during his high school years in California more than 20 years ago. Schneider talks of another child kidnapping that happened in her husband’s home state of Minnesota in the 1980s. But instantaneous cross-country knowledge didn’t exist then to cast its fearful net over us. My mother, who is 79, remembers only one child abduction incident being talked about during her youth — of famous

aviator Charles Lindbergh’s baby in 1932, which actually occurred the year before she was born. “Bad things happened,” she said. “Before, we didn’t know of them.” She does, however, add a caveat: The world today is a less friendly place, a more suspicious one in which scarier incidents occur more frequently than the world in which she grew up, or the world in which she raised her three kids. Back then, the culture was different, less brutal violence in movies and video games. Boundaries were narrower and more respected; people paid attention to each other more, relied on each other more. My mother could call the telephone operator to find out where I had wandered as I played with friends. “She’s over at the Lopez’s house,” the operator would tell her. The grapevine constantly chattered and watched. Now we have Neighborhood Watches, which are highly successful crime prevention programs, according to Gorgens. They require an investment by neighbors to look out for one another, to care beyond their fences, to believe that what happens to someone else is their business, too. If we operated in such a fashion all the time, could we keep our children safer? A positive outcome, if it can be called that, of Jessica’s tragedy was a re-examination of family safety policies. “It’s like a call to arms for parents,” Gorgens said. “Every parent evaluates their own procedures.” The collateral damage, as Gorgens described it — a bruised perception of safety, the traumatic anguish — was more difficult to manage. For many, a new reality exists. Kimber Schneider still sees Gene

Martin’s face. When her kids complain they can’t walk somewhere alone, she is unyielding: “You have to be with someone. There are bad people in the world who do bad things and that’s why mommy is really careful about where you are. … People will take you. People take kids all the time and don’t think that just because you live where you live that it’s not going to happen, because it can happen anywhere.” They take her warning in stride, she said. Just a matter-of-fact part of life. Like our parents before us, we tell our children not to talk to strangers. We teach them how to cross a street. But we have added to the precautionary list: Always walk with a buddy, even to a restaurant bathroom. Call as soon as you get to your destination, even if it’s just around the corner. Park in well-lit areas, even if the area is crowded. Learn self-defense, even if you think you’ll never need it. We do our best to prepare them to know how to be safe. Because, as my mother said, one day, “like all good parents, you have to let go.” Gorgens offers this to think about: “When you have a quiet moment and your fear starts to unravel you, consider what’s the likelihood I’m going to face that problem? Have I done everything possible to protect myself?” That’s all, really, that we can do. That, and continue to believe in goodness — and make it our business to look out for one another. Especially the children.

Freedom Service Dogs graduates a dozen

Animals help with therapy, dealing with disabilities By Tom Munds

tmunds@ourcoloradonews.com Excited barks joined with applause as diplomas were presented to owners and a dozen of their furry friends at the Dec. 8 Freedom Service Dogs graduation ceremonies. Freedom Service Dogs is a nonprofit organization in Englewood that rescues dogs from shelters and trains the animals to assist individuals with disabilities. Training is customized for each client, and typical services the dog can do include tasks like opening doors and turning on lights. Dogs also are trained to become companions for people with emotional disabilities. The Dec. 8 graduation included four traditional clients, three veterans and five University of Denver students in the graduate social work program who will be in programs providing dog-assisted therapy. Michael Holtvluwer, a Centennial resident, graduated with his first service dog named Fender. Holtvluwer is in a wheelchair as a result of dystonia, a neurological disorder in which the brain sends unwanted signals to muscles causing movements or twitches. “I am amazed at all the thing Fender can do for me,” he said. “He helps me with stability and picks up things for me. Fender goes

with me everywhere I go and even takes a bath with me.” His dad Eddie said Fender is a big help. “Fender is really amazing,” he said. “He even pushed the handicapped panel to open doors so I can push the wheelchair through. Fender is helping Michael come out of his shell and Michael even

feeds him now. Having Fender makes me feel more comfortable when I am not with him.” A short distance away, Donna Duran talked about her new dog, Dazzle. “My service dog got too old and Dazzle is my replacement dog,” the Littleton resident said. “Dazzle is a great companion and does a lot of things for me.

For example, Dazzle retrieves things I drop when I am in the wheelchair, and goes and gets my son if I need help.” The other graduate in a wheelchair was Lakewood resident Beth Morrissey. “Drake is my third service dog and he is wonderful,” she said. “He gives me confidence in myself, gives me freedom and independence and helps me enjoy my life.” Drake’s former owner, Nancy Hamilton, attended the graduation. “I am a therapist and I thought maybe I could train him as a therapy dog,” Hamilton said. “Drake was a good dog that had a lot of bad ideas and, as I am a single mom, I didn’t have the time to train him, so I am so glad he wound up here and is helping Beth.” Samantha Roberts and her therapy dog Hattie were among the five University of Denver students taking part in the graduation. “My undergraduate degree was in psychology and then I found out and enrolled in the two-year DU animal assisted therapy program,” She said. “I love animals, I want to help people and this seemed like a way I could have the best of both worlds.” She said she isn’t sure what she will eventually do, but she is an intern in a University of Colorado program helping people on probation or parole dealing with substance abuse, and the therapy dog is a great benefit working with the clients. “I am not sure I’ll continue in this area,” Roberts said. “But I like it because I see the impact this program can have on individuals and families.”

OPINIONS / YOURS AND OURS

Look local for holiday shopping As we reach the midway point in the holiday shopping season, halfway between Thansgiving and Christmas, we encourage our readers to shop local as they look for those just-right gifts. For all the hype surrounding Black Friday, it’s not the biggest shopping day of the year. It consistently ranks behind the four days that make up the two weekends preceding Christmas — in other words, the point where we are now. During the late part of the year — with all its holidays — there is information aplenty about local businesses and products in our newspapers. Stories throughout the year cover the lo-

Of course we know online shopping edges up a few percentage points each year. But even there we encourage our readers who

Private sector payroll jobs increased 8,500 and government increased 100. Looking back a year, the current 7.9 unemployment rate has declined two-tenths of a percentage point from 8.1 percent in October 2011. Colorado is faring well in statistics like these compared to many other states. So it is a good time to show your pride. As you make holiday purchases — as well as everyday or durable-goods purchases — we encourage you to take time and look for your consumer needs to be met by your neighbors. Supporting local businesses makes our communities stronger.

Don’t be shy about spreading good word

A Phillies ad over four strangers I was told recently to count my blessings. “Count your blessings instead of complaining about things that can’t be changed for a change.” I wondered if they were talking to me. I am Mr. Sunshine. I usually write my columns after a bowl of coffee and a few chapters of Kafka, so it’s little wonder that I have a sunny disposition about things I read in the paper, like the new gun dorm at CU (there have been zero applications), and assorted kidnappings nationally, and the frenzy among my countrymen for electronic Christmas gifts. I was voted “Most Likely to Succeed” by the senior class. I didn’t quite make it. I had to turn in my plaque. John S. became president of Holiday Inns of North America. I was the head coach of a coed softball team. That’s about it. But there are blessings all over the place. I don’t have to look very far. I can start by looking at the floor. No, it’s not the carpet or hardwood flooring. It’s a heartbeat. I was across the street the other morning, when Smitty was tied up in the front yard. He was examining our rabbit. The same rabbit is here every day. I think it is the same one. I wish there were some humane way of tagging him. Maybe he could carry a pocket watch. I looked across the street at Smitty and thought that he looked exactly like a red mouse. He’s an expensive red mouse. Thousands of dollars for medical procedures and boarding and cheese cubes. Worth it. This home is a blessing. I have never been down and out, but I have lived in apartments in sad places. I lived in an apartment across the street from the Sawtelle Veterans Home in southern California. Back then it was a gritty area, with some unfortunate stories. There was a self-immolation. We don’t have many self-immolations in Highlands Ranch. Backlighted bare trees are blessings. You know about backlighting, don’t you? It turns things into silhouettes, and makes them interesting even if they’re not. Put your worst uncle in front of a setting sun and take a picture. Your worst uncle will look like Lawrence of Arabia instead of just Lawrence. Black and white are blessings: black and white films, photographs, and old televi-

enjoy online shopping to choose the websites featured by our local businesses. The Colorado Retail Council has forecast a 2.9 percent increase in holiday shopping projections, while the National Retail Federation predicts spending around the country will rise 4.1 percent from last year.

I went back to Michigan to visit my family right before my final semester of college. Dad and I had a heart to heart about my future and then he asked me what they could get me for graduation. I just sat there and looked at him. Eventually I composed myself and said, “Get me? Dad, you and mom have already given it to me.” They put me through schools in four states. Every time we moved they made sure I would be educated. Thanks to them I was able to write this sentence. I know the difference between right and wrong, that’s a blessing. Between good and evil. And between ice cream and ice milk. I am leaving a few things out, for the sake of discretion, but read my mind and that will take care of it.

Who do you know? I mean who do you know that you would feel really good about recommending or providing a referral for? What if I asked it a different way? What if the question was this, who knows you and who would feel really good about giving you a referral or recommending you as a friend, or for a job, or to join a committee? You see, networking happens all the time, whether we do it consciously, unconsciously, or subconsciously, we have an opportunity to participate at many levels. I can share with you that many years ago, when I had my first big opportunity to join a company, the difference maker between why I was hired and beat out the other few finalists was because of the letters of recommendation that were sent on my behalf. They were so strong that the hiring manager almost couldn’t believe it. But after following up and speaking directly to the people who endorsed me, the hiring manager became convinced that I was the right candidate and offered me the position. Facebook and LinkedIn have helped me to reconnect with so many people. Some folks that I grew up with and went to school with, others that I served with in the military, and many people that I have worked with or had an opportunity to know professionally. Social media is awesome in that way, connecting us with people from our past as well as our present. But even without the help of such technology, we still have our immediate circle of friends, family, co-workers and associates that help us and who we should be willing to help as much as we possibly can. Just think of all of the wrapping paper, Girl Scout cookies, popcorn or gift cards you have purchased from a neighbors child. If you are like me, you just can’t say “no.” If we took this same concept just one or two steps further, we should be asking ourselves things like, “If I am going to buy a car I will buy it from that guy I went to high school with who is now selling cars.” Or “If my spouse and I are going to dinner,

why wouldn’t I go to that restaurant that my neighbors own and maybe where my other friend’s daughter is a server?” I am not sure about you, but I love referring people, connecting people or businesses, and making recommendations or referring anyone and everyone I know to people and companies that I can trust and who I know will deliver a better than good result. Many of my friends and family members work for big corporations, and I am grateful for the work that they do and all the people that they serve. But I must share with you that my heart goes out to the entrepreneur or small business owner and their staff. One day, and maybe one day soon, you will find yourself in a position to recommend someone, refer people to a business, or network with folks where you can help connect the dots between two people or businesses. And you may just even find that when you are the consumer, when you do everything you possibly can to shop where your friends and neighbors are trying so hard to build their business, that you will not only be helping them, but you will truly be enriching your own life as well.

Volunteers bring Christmas cheer to kids Journey Church project aids Bishop Elementary families

Have a wedding, anniversary, engagement, birth or special occasion coming up? Share it! Colorado Community Media invites you to place an announcement to share your news. Go to ourcoloradonews.com/celebrations for package and pricing information. Deadline is 10 a.m. Tuesdays the week preceding the announcement.

By Tom Munds

tmunds@ourcoloradonews.com The hum of conversation and occasional laughter replaced the normal Saturday stillness at Bishop Elementary School on Dec. 8 as parents came to get presents for their children from the Christmas Store. This is the second year Journey Church has sponsored and staffed the Christmas Store to try to help about 140 families provide nice presents for their children. The program is simple. Parents sign up and the church provides a choice of gifts ranging from coats and boots to dolls and electronic games. Although the retail cost of each gift ranges from $20 to $50, parents select two gifts for each child for a fee of $5 per gift. “This project is awesome and it is a huge help for our family. It is amazing these people would do this for people they don’t even know,” Nicole Breese said. “We live in Englewood, we have five children, three of them going to school here at Bishop. I work full time and go to school full time. My husband did work full time but is unemployed right now recovering from knee surgery. This store will make a much nicer Christ-

Photo by Tom Munds mas for our children and for us.” Cory Bragg, mission pastor, said the relationship between Journey Church, located in Centennial, and Bishop Elementary School started when the lead pastor was riding a bus on a cold day and asked a Bishop student why he wasn’t wearing a jacket. The boy said the family only had one coat and today was his brother’s turn to wear it. “We put together a coat drive for Bishop,” he said. “After we visited Bishop, we wanted to do more to help those families. Members of our congregation had helped out with a Christmas Store downtown and we agreed we should do a

store for the Bishop families last year. It was a big success as we served about 90 families. So we are doing it again this year and we are pleased that about 140 families have signed up.” This year, project planning began in September, as organizers raised about $20,000 to buy the estimated 600 gifts needed for the project. The Christmas Store was set up at Bishop on Dec. 8. Volunteers from the church greeted families as they arrived at the school. There were volunteers to help them sign in and volunteers to help the parents shop for gifts. Volunteer Ronda Vernaza said she was glad to be part of the project as

she waited to help a family shop. “I grew up in a poor family and understand the circumstances facing some of these parents,” the Highland Ranch resident said. “I think this is an awesome program helping parents get nice gifts for their children for a very low cost. My reward is seeing the smiles on the faces of the parents as they find that special gift for one of their children. It makes me want to be at that home on Christmas to see the faces of the children as they open the packages.” The organizers also made sure there were volunteers who spoke Spanish to help parents who might struggle with English.

Clyta M. Lincoln Holland passed away peacefully surrounded by loved ones at 3 a.m. on Monday November 19, 2012. Although she moved to Eureka Springs, Arkansas in 2000 to be closer to her three children and their families, she never lost her love for Colorado. Clyta was born at home on Delaware street, January 5th, 1922 in downtown Denver and later moved to the same street in Englewood where she resided until her graduation from Englewood High School class of 1940. She met and married her one true love, Air Force cadet John K. Holland on October 10, 1942 in Midland, Texas. After the war they returned to Colorado and

raised their three children: Janice, Ken and Dawn. John preceded Clyta in death in 1971. Upon his passing, Clyta became a floral designer until her retirement. She enjoyed the company of many of her fellow classmates over the years and had an avid interest in travel and reading. After moving to Arkansas, she joined the Red Hat Society, an organization for active senior women. She recently returned from a reunion with her sister-in-law and family in North Carolina. Upon her return, she was diagnosed with a inoperable heart condition. Her infectious smile and gentle spirit will be greatly missed by all those lucky enough to have known her.

Children’s Hospital prepares to ‘top out’ By Ryan Boldrey

Youthful musicians show off their talents Fifth-, sixth-graders take part in voluntary orchestra classes By Tom Munds

tmunds@ourcoloradonews.com Students in Englewood’s new voluntary elementary school music classes performed in front of a crowd for the first time at their Dec. 6 concert. The day after the concert, the musicians met with Scott Jensen, the middle school music director who teaches the class, to evaluate what they had done and to talk about what the future will bring. “You students have been with me for two and a half months and you have really come a long way,” said Jensen. “Some of you were a bit nervous at the concert, but everyone settled down and really did a good job.” He thanked the students for their efforts and told them they would immediately begin learning something new as they begin preparation for the concert they will present in May. The program is new this year, offering fifth- and sixth-graders the opportunity to attend the after-school program to learn to play orchestra instruments. The students are bused from their elementary school to the middle school for classes and, when the classes are completed, the students are bused back to their home school. “Each week, I meet with students playing woodwinds on Tuesday, percussionists come to class on Wednesday and those playing in the brass section are with me on Thursday,” Jensen said. “Then, on Fridays, I meet with all the musicians.”

He said the classes present the fundamentals and all the students are urged to practice daily. All students have instruments. Some have their own instruments while others are provided by the school. Student Ethan Urbina said he joined the orchestra because he loves music and it is part of his personality “I came to the classes because I wanted to see what it was like to play an instrument,” he said. “I initially thought I would like to play the flute but decided against it after trying it. I saw the clarinet, I tried it, liked it and now this is my instrument.” He said he was nervous when he got up on the stage for the Dec. 6 concert, but he did his best to play the right notes and keep a smile on his face. Classmate Megan Trail said she joined the orchestra because she wanted to try doing something new and different. “I chose to play the trumpet because dad played the trumpet,” she said. “It was harder to learn than I thought it would be. I think the hardest thing was learning how to properly position you lips on the mouthpiece.” She, too, said she was a little nervous as she took the stage for the concert, but when the music started, the nervousness went away. She said she has fun with the trumpet and plans to stay with the orchestra. Damien Land joined the orchestra and decided to play the drums. “I like drumming on things so I guess it was natural for me to be a drummer,” he said. “Learning to play the drums is a little harder than I expected. It was a lot more fun when we moved from doing drills to actually playing a song. I like the orchestra and I want to continue to take the classes.”

On target to open in December 2013, Children’s Hospital Colorado’s South Campus is preparing for a ceremonial moment on Dec. 17 — and the community is invited. The raising of the topping-out beam of the Highlands Ranch hospital will bring together hospital dignitaries, patients, community leaders and staff, and according to Children’s Colorado Vice President Suzy Jaeger, there will be a little fun too. “We let the kids sit behind the cranes and help the construction workers get it up to the top of the building structure,” she said. “It’s very much a Children’s tradition. It really connects all the dots and makes you understand why this kind of stuff is really important. It’s really symbolic of the importance of this community.” In preparing the beam, patients, hospital staff members and construction workers gathered this past week at outpatient clinics throughout the south metro area, as well as at Hometown Holidays Friday night in Highlands Ranch, to sign the beam. One of those signing the beam at Littleton’s Outpatient Specialty and Therapy Care Clinic Dec. 6 was Jordan Corray and his children Capri, 8, and Logan, 5, both of whom have been patients at Children’s. “We’re very excited to have Children’s closer to home,” said Corray, who as superintendent for Sturgeon Electric has done a lot of work for Children’s, including building the catheterization lab where Capri wound up at the Aurora campus. “We know we get the best care there. Having it close to home is going to be a real convenience.” The south campus, which broke ground May 23 in Highlands Ranch, will offer inpatient care, a wide range of outpatient services, a 22-room urgent care, a sports medicine program, four operating rooms, numerous laboratories, imaging and diagnostics. Keeping with the concept of Children’s it will also have play areas, shortterm sibling care, a family hospitality area,

and a healing garden. The facility, which will be 175,000 square feet when it is complete, is expected to employ 300 people. The 125 employees who currently work at the four existing southmetro satellite clinics in Littleton and Centennial will all be relocated to the south campus, and Children’s plans to hire an additional 175 employees. According to Derek Breier, project manager of Centennial’s Saunders Construction, which is heading the project, the exterior of the building is anticipated to be complete in April, and then it should take another six months to finalize the interior. From there, it will take Children’s two months to have everything prepared to open. “We can hardly wait,” Jaeger said. “If we could open up tomorrow we certainly would. It’s been a long time coming and we’re very anxious to get things up and going.” The special topping-out ceremony is at the construction site of the new facility. It will take place from 3:30-4:30 p.m. Dec. 17 at 1811 Plaza Drive, Highlands Ranch.

Fire safety poster contest winners honored Fire chief, mayor present certificates to students By Tom Munds

tmunds@ourcoloradonews.com Englewood City Council held a ceremony during the Dec. 3 meeting to honor the five school classes selected as winners in the annual Fire Prevention and Safety Week Poster Contest. Friends and family filled most of the available seats in the council chambers for the awards. After the awards, the council took a short recess for the reception held in the community room, where there were refreshments and where all the winning posters were displayed on the walls. For the ceremony, Mike Pattarozzi, fire chief, talked about the contest. He said the fire department staff took an active part in

the project. There also was active student involvement and about 30 entries were submitted. The judges had the difficult task of selecting a winner for each grade, kindergarten through fifth grade. Pattarozzi announced each winning class. Mayor Randy Penn presented the teacher and student a certificate. This year’s winners were: • Kindergarten: Art teacher Shonda Kaspar’s class at St. Louis Catholic School. • First grade: Kaspar’s class at St. Louis Catholic School. • Second grade: Janet Niswonger’s class at All Souls Catholic School. • Third grade: Regina Holms’ class at All Souls Catholic School. • Fourth grade: Cari Prado’s class at All Souls Catholic School. • Fifth grade: Amy DeGrood’s and Angela DeMunck’s classes at Bishop Elementary School.

It has a well that could be used to water a proposed tree nursery, said Patterson, and a bridge will connect it to Big Dry Creek. Littleton Mayor Debbie Brinkman praised the South Platte Working Group, of which she is a member, for its work on the projects thus far. “The properties now are in a thousand times better shape than when we purchased them,” she said. “They’ve become amenities to the community, and that’s great. What I love is that the committee was pretty loud and clear about passive recreation and keeping it natural.” She and SSPRD board chair John Ostermiller both voiced concern about one aspect of the proposal — allowing overnight camping and a temporary fire pit at the Murray site. “I’m not a fan of overnight permitting of any type,” said Brinkman. Dave Lorenz, executive director of South Suburban Parks and Recreation District, has said the restorations will likely be funded through a joint venture among various entities, as were the purchases.

Meals go mile high

Santa-garbed Larry Propp meets Amy Hunt’s kids, 3-year-old Cody Hunt and 2-year-old Hailey Hunt, on Dec. 4 at the Park Meadows mall. Photos by Courtney Kuhlen

The business of being Santa Park Meadows’ holiday star is entrepreneur off stage By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com In his hometown of Sterling, to his 6-year-old granddaughter and the children who share with him their most heartfelt desires at Park Meadows shopping center, Larry Propp has but one name: Santa. To the 60 Santas who work for him, he’s the boss. With his seven years of mall experience,

naturally white beard and a love of children that inspires their confidence, Propp is a considered a premier Santa. Four other Santas work as his backups. While he won’t reveal his specific compensation, the typical Santa contract for six weeks of work at a peak venue like Park Meadows includes a $10,000 to $15,000 salary, lodging, a meal package and often, car rental and airfare. “We pay a lot for our Santas,” said Pamela Schenck-Kelly, Park Meadows’ manager.

Larry Propp uses some of his strategies to get a picture with 2-year-old Joaquin Diaz, who was not too sure about the stranger with the white beard.

“But you can tell the difference between someone who loves what they do and someone who doesn’t. We bring the best Santa we can possibly bring.” In addition to working one of the most coveted venues in the industry, Propp runs a Santa agency. He selects, trains and helps place Santas in malls and other venues nationwide. Instruction and administration comes naturally to Propp, who retired 10 years ago from a career as a community college administrator. The Santa industry is competitive, and Propp is highly selective about who’s allowed to join his agency. “You have to be a natural-bearded Santa,” he said. Hair color doesn’t matter; any beard can be made white, he said. But thickness does. Propp wants to see a full, round beard that covers the skin under the mouth — an area in which some men have trouble growing hair — and a generous mustache. Eyes are preferably blue, and while even Propp pads his figure for the holidays, a good Santa has a solid build. The other qualities are harder to put into words. “I’m really looking for a personality, a sense of humor, someone who’s fun to be around,” Propp said. “A jolly guy is what I’m looking for.” All Santas also must undergo a federal background check and drug test. Those who make the cut receive a Santa manual, instructional DVDs and personal training from Propp that includes suggestions on packing for the road, hair preparation and posing for pictures. The most important bit of advice? “Do not break character,” Propp said. “You are Santa.” He shares with them knowledge gleaned over the years, including the proper approach to take with children of varying ages. Children between the ages of 1 and 2 are the most challenging, he said. “Once they get to 2, about two-and-ahalf, they will just accept you for who you are and usually will have a very long wish list,” Propp said. “That goes good until about 7 or 8; then they start shying away. When they’re in high school, the girls will start wandering back in. At that time, their wish list is, `I want Justin Bieber,’ or perfume.” Like many businesses that involve customer service, Propp is always in the market for bilingual employees. “There’s a shortage of Santas,” he said. “If I had a Santa today that spoke Spanish, he’d have a job tomorrow.”

The Colorado Convention Center is stepping up its cuisine scene to incorporate Colorado-produced eats into its concession stands. Centerplate, the Convention Center’s official caterer, has brought in Colorado suppliers such as Polidori Sausage, Continental Sausage, produce from Blue Bear Farm (Centerplate’s 5,000-squarefoot urban garden), along with grass-fed beef burgers from TAG chef/owner Troy Guard, to up its good-grub game to appeal to conventioneers who bring in millions of dollars annually to support our economy. “We started this project in February by talking to talents in the country using local products and bringing authentic Colorado (cuisine) to the Convention Center,” said Laurence Rua, Centerplate’s regional vice president, during a press lunch last week. All 14 of the Convention Center concessions are now sending a clear Colorado cuisine message to visitors. “We’re designing food not just to eat, we’re designing food … to say welcome to Colorado, which is our theme of the redesign of the food program,” said John Sergi, Centerplate’s chief design officer. QR codes on concession stand signs connect with the www.visitdenver.com website to take viewers to see other eateries around town where out-of-towners can dine. Other chef consultants who were brought into the program’s redesign were Roberto Santibanez, a New York restaurateur and author of “Truly Mexican,” who created tortas and tacos using local ingredients, and Italian expert Bill Pustari from New Haven, Conn., who created pizzas using seasonal vegetables and locally sourced meats. The public is invited to try out the new food program whenever the Convention Center is open.

Spoiler alert

If you haven’t watched your recorded version of Wednesday’s “Top Chef” series on Bravo, don’t read this. Denver’s Tyler Wiard, exec chef of Elway’s steakhouse, was told to “pack his knives and go” after he was paired up with CJ, one of the show’s past chef-testants, after the reluctant duo bummed out the judges with a badly executed pork burger. But don’t count Wiard down and out quite yet. Bravo continues the contest with “Last Chance Kitchen”, a web-only battle by the ousted chefs to win a place back on the big show. On this week’s webcast, Wiard and CJ were again paired (to their amusement and chagrin) and challenged to make a dessert in competition against reigning “Last Chance Kitchen” champ Kuniko Yagi. Chef/judge Tom Colicchio declared the pair the winners of the dessert challenge for their cherry fritters and hay (yes, you read that right) ice cream. So they will move on to face the next ousted “Top Chef” contender. To see the webisode, go to www. bravotv.com/top-chef. Parker continues on Page 19

REAL ESTATE CAREERS MARKETPLACE SERVICE DIRECTORY

REAL ESTATE AGENT SPOTLIGHT OF THE WEEK Amy Terry What is your specialty and what does that mean for What do you most enjoy doing when you’re not workRealtor

the people you work with? My specialty is the SW metro area market. Because I focus my business in one area, I have deep market knowledge of different subdivisions, schools, builders, changes coming to an area, etc. This enables me to arm my clients with as much knowledge as possible to make the best decisions to help them reach their goals.

8z Real Estate 303.882.3954 Mobile AmyTerry@8z.com www.8z.com Website

Where were you born? Wheat Ridge, CO but I grew up in Littleton. How long have you lived in the area? As long as I can remember.

What is the most challenging part of what you do? There are many moving parts in a real estate transaction and many parties involved. Each person has to hold up their end of the bargain and do their job for a transaction to come together. It is very frustrating when one or several people within a transaction drop the ball.

What do you like most about it? I love the central location. It’s 20 minutes to the mountains for hiking, camping, skiing – 20 minutes to downtown for sporting events, live theater, fine dining. We really have access to the best of both worlds.

ing? I love spending time with family, friends, & my rescue dog Reece. I adore traveling to new destinations. I am also passionate about yoga and meditation and practice each daily. What is one tip you have for someone looking to sell a house? Selling a home can be an emotional and stressful process. I remind my clients to focus on the end goal and not to stress about the little details (that’s my job!). What is one tip you have for someone looking to buy a house? Right now, financing is a big hurdle; you are a step ahead if you get your financing in order before beginning your hunt. That way when you find the right home you can jump on it. What is the most unusual thing you’ve encountered while working in Real Estate? Too many crazy stories to choose from!

How long have you worked in Real Estate? A total of 14 years as a receptionist in high school, an office manager and assistant through college, and as a Broker the last 7 years.

The thicker walls in our New Town Builders’ high performance homes allow for 60% more money-saving insula on than in a conven onal home, and our roof is 6 inches higher than a typical home, so we can get 2 ½ mes MORE insula on in the a c. This reduces heat loss, and more importantly, reduces your energy bill! Talk to us about building your (surprisingly affordable) energy-efficient new home.

Home features that are T

DISAPPEARING

here is no denying the profound impact that the recession has had on the real estate industry. For the last several years, the real estate market went from booming to one characterized by homes sitting on the market for months on end. New home sales also have been conservative, and builders are cutting back on some offerings that were once commonplace. The National Association for Realtors says that, despite floundering sales, there are fewer foreclosed homes available now than in recent years. Distressed homes -foreclosures and short sales sold at deep discounts -- accounted for 25 percent of homes sales in May of 2012. That figure is down from 28 percent in April and 31 percent in May of 2011. While home sales have increased, money is still tight in the building industry and among home buyers. As such, instead of over-the-top fea-

tures in homes that were once becoming the norm, builders are now focusing on more value-conscious designs and offerings. The list of add-ons also has been reduced.

Mortgage Corner

So what can buyers expect to live without when buying a newly constructed home? Here are a few of the common features that are falling by the wayside.

Sunrooms: Once bringing in the outside had a strong, loyal following, but now builders are focusing on home features that immediately add value and attract the buyer’s

eye. Therefore, they’re putting their resources into linen closets and laundry rooms while de-emphasizing sunrooms. Extended ceiling heights: It can take a lot of energy to heat rooms with 15-foot ceilings. As a result, grandiose family rooms and two-story foyers are less attractive to buyers focused on saving money. Homeowners want spaces that are easier to heat and cool. Luxury bathrooms: Many private residence luxury bathrooms rival those found at popular 4-star hotels. But luxury bathrooms are being phased out in favor of less expensive, more practical options. Outdoor kitchens: Although entertaining at home is one way to keep budgets in check, some homeowners have realized they don’t need a complete backyard kitchen with a pizza oven and brick fireplace in order to host guests. According to a survey from

the National Association of Home Builders, outdoor kitchens are the second leastlikely feature to be included in homes built in 2012. Media rooms: Individuals certainly love their gadgets, but many of these gadgets have become smaller and more portable. That reduces the need for giant home theaters and gaming spaces. While certain features are disappearing, there are others that are growing more and more popular. Dual sinks in kitchens, walk-in closets, extra storage areas, and hidden charging stations for devices are likely to show up more and more in new home designs. The design of new homes is changing to be more budget-friendly and also represent the changing priorities of home buyers. As a result, today’s newly designed homes will likely look much different from homes built just a few years ago. ❑

‘Man Who Came to Dinner’ at Denver theater

“The Man Who Came to Dinner” plays through Dec. 22 at the John Hand Theater, 7653 E. First Place, Denver (Lowry). Performances: 7:30 Fridays, Saturdays; 2 p.m. Sundays. Tickets: $20/$18, 720-880-8727, thisisspotlight.org.

most unhappy, while his wife and kids are intrigued. And then, there’s Stanley’s weird sister Harriet, played by Littleton’s Linda Suttle — in a startling variety of costumes. Dan Connell plays the Whiteside part well, with raised eyebrows, sneers and lots of tart one-liners. He is a founding member and board chairman of Spotlight Theatre Company, which collaborates with Firehouse Theater Company to produce this American classic. The two veteran directors have a strong cast and have choreographed all the farcical coming, goings and door-slammings very well. Fine comic timing is essential to a successful production of this brand of play and it is planned really well, so the delivery man and Banjo don’t collide, nor do others, despite rapid movement much of the time in a small stage space. This familiar play is dated, yes, but it’s a story that could happen to another family in another town today, so it plays as quite fresh. It offers a nice light alternative for those who don’t seek Christmas-themed entertainment.

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com When George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart wrote their comedy “The Man Who Came to Dinner” — now playing at Denver’s John Hand Theater — in the 1930s, many in the audience would have recognized several barely disguised theatrical personalities who were often in the news. They were looking for a vehicle for one of them, in fact — critic Alexander Woollcott — to make a stage appearance. It seems that Woollcott had appeared at a weekend affair at Hart’s estate and “taken over the master bedroom, slept until noon, terrorized the staff and ate everything in sight …” according to the notes by directors Pat Payne and Bernie Cardell. When Hart told Kaufman about it, he commented that “it’s good he didn’t break his leg.” The two looked at each other, the proverbial light bulb went on — and a play was born. Woollcott, according to online accounts, thought the play was delightful, and while his schedule didn’t let him appear on Broadway when it opened in 1939, he did,

Courtesy photo by Rachel Graham play the part in California later, with good friend Harpo Marx in the cast. (The Banjo part is certainly Harpo, while Beverly Carleton is fashioned after playwright Noel Coward.) A successful film was made in 1942, starring Broadway lead Monty Wooley. Lights go up on the 1930s living room of the well-off Stanley family of Mesalia, Ohio. It’s decorated for Christmas.

We hear a roar from the next room. Famous radio critic Sheridan Whiteside was in town to lecture and accepted a dinner invitation to the Stanley home. Alas, he fell on a patch of ice on the doorstep and is in bed offstage, attended by a terrified nurse and a ditsy doctor. The phone rings; telegrams, mail and a gift of live penguins arrive. The ensuing chaos makes Mr. Stanley

‘Along the Platte’ along the alley Tucked-away Garage Studio exhibits paintings of cyclists

Arapahoe Philharmonic plays ‘Holiday Pops’

By Sonya Ellingboe

By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com New fuschia-pink awnings make Littleton’s “Gallery in the Alley” easy to find at 5784 S. Rapp St., tucked in behind the Old Mill Brewery and Grill. The Garage Studio and Fine Art Gallery is the proper name, and it’s one of downtown Littleton’s hidden treasures. It’s been about 11 years since the early mechanic’s garage was transformed into a studio for a group of artists, plus a gallery to display their art. The artists were initially drawn together through classes at the Curtis Street studio of longtime Littleton artist Marie Ungemah, who suggested they were ready to launch on their own and should consider a gallery/studio. Former partner Katie Rohrbaugh located the space, and those creative types could see a different future for the weathered building, with a new coat of paint and other improvements. Current gallery partners Don and Barb Simasko and Susan Rommel have invited Ungemah to exhibit her recent and colorful “Along the Platte” series of paintings of cyclists traveling the South Platte River trail. Her works will hang through December, along with the partners’ recent paintings. Art ranges from abstract to representational to impressionistic, according to Rommel. Readers have probably seen the Garage Gallery artists’ works at the Café Terracotta in downtown Littleton, where they have provided a rotating exhibit over a number of years.

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews. com

“Late Afternoon Ride” by Marie Ungemah shows cyclists on the Mary Carter Greenway by the South Platte River. Courtesy image The three are at the studio most weekdays, Rommel said, and all welcome visitors. “Hours are by appointment or by chance” is how they put it, but drop-ins are greeted happily. Calls are encouraged at 303-703-4080. While the group used to have a fairly regular schedule of exhibits with guest artists, the space is mostly used today as a working studio, Rommel said. And of course the group is convinced that an original painting makes an ideal and lasting holiday gift.

Orchestra members with Arapahoe Philharmonic and guest conductor Travis Juergens met in August and chose the program for a “Holiday Pops” concert scheduled at 7:30 p.m. Dec. 15 at Mission Hills Church, 620 South Park Drive, Littleton. This is the Arapahoe Philharmonic’s 59th season of local concerts. Before the concert, the orchestra will hold a silent auction beginning at 6:30 p.m., according to publicist/musician Gail Sindelar, who is excited about this program — new for the orchestra. Included: • “Hark the Herald Trumpets Sing “ (Mendelssohn/Chip Davis,

Giving is the Spirit of the Season by Terry McElhaney As the Spirit of the Holiday season begins its yearly conversion of things ordinary and trivial into things festive and reflective, The South Metro Chamber encourages all to consider those who spend the whole year in the service of others in need. The following non-profit groups are but a small sampling of organizations, both large and small who are always in need of support whether it be monetary, goods, services, or simply time. Take a moment and give thought as to how you might share a bit of yourself for the benefit of others not only this time of year, but throughout the year. Project C.U.R.E. is a humanitarian relief organization that collects medical supplies and equipment and donates it to developing countries. Since 1987, Denver-based Project C.U.R.E. has delivered donated medical supplies and equipment to the most desperately ill and impoverished people living in more than 108 countries around the world. Last fiscal year, Project C.U.R.E. delivered 83 cargo containers valued at more than $26 million worth of medical relief to developing countries. PROJECT C.U.R.E. is currently the world’s largest distributor of donated medical supplies and equipment. www.projectcure.org TLC Meals on Wheels is a private, non-profit organization dedicated to meeting the nutritional needs of our neighbors. A healthy, hot meal is delivered by caring volunteers to our clients’ door at lunch time Monday through Friday, for only $3 per day. Often one hot meal a day can make the

difference between a senior living independently and having to be institutionalized. In addition to the nutritional value of the meals, the social interaction with the volunteers delivering the meal and assuring that the senior is well encourages independence. www.mealsonwheelslittleton.org Inter-Faith Community Services provides basic human services and enrichment programs to low-income people using community resources. Inter-Faith fosters self-sufficiency and respects the dignity of each client. Serving the people of Centennial, Englewood, Glendale, Highlands Ranch, Littleton, Lone Tree, Sheridan and unincorporated Arapahoe County, Inter-Faith is the largest non-governmental agency helping individuals, families and seniors who are struggling in the South Metro Denver area. Their goal this year is to “adopt” 550 families and 100 seniors for the holidays. www.ifcs.org

During the year, the Denver Rescue Mission provides shelter, food, clothing, education, Christian teaching, and work discipline to meet individuals at their physical and spiritual points of need. Operating five different facilities, each with a specific mission and clientele, the Denver Rescue Mission is the oldest full-service charity serving the needy in the Rocky Mountain Area. www.denverrescuemission.org

in the lives of the more than 19,000 people served each year. Goodwill promotes sustainable change throughout the community and supports a growing economy through a model that provides education, training and opportunities to help the working poor, people moving from welfare to work, and disabled adults attain true self-sufficiency. www.goodwilldenver.org Alternatives Pregnancy Center exists to care for Denver-area women and men in pregnancyrelated crises and offer them a meaningful alternative to abortion. The center seeks to meet emotional, physical and spiritual needs, enabling and encouraging women every day. Alternatives provides a “Baby Shower in a Bag” to new mothers. We are in need of new baby items including: pacifiers, baby wipes, sleepers and outfits (size 0-3 months), hooded bath towels and washcloths, bottles, baby toiletries, and grocery gift cards. Alternatives’ services are free and confidential with six metro area offices and a 24-Hour Helpline at 303.295.2288. www.youhavealternatives.org

DAM extends Van Gogh hours Tickets for “Becoming Van Gogh” at the Denver Art Museum are in heavy demand and the museum has been able to respond by staying open until 9 p.m. most nights (the entire Hamilton Building will be open for visitors, although the North Building will close at 5). The exhibit assembled by curator Timothy Standring, with assistance from co-curator Louis Van Tilburgh of the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, consists of about 70 paintings and drawings by Van Gogh, plus some by artists who influenced his development. Timed tickets include general admission, so visitors can roam elsewhere in the museum. (We especially recommend the works by El Anatsui on the fourth floor.) Reserve in advance to get the time slot you want. Tickets: VanGoghDenver.com or call 720-913-0130 ($3 service charge for phone orders). Note that DAM’s new next-door neighbor has a show called “Vincent|Clyfford,” which explores connections between Van Gogh and Clyfford Still.

Former Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow is making hay in the New York gossip columns with a much higher completion rate than he ever had during his short stint here. The New York Jets backup QB apparently has introduced actress girlfriend Camilla Belle to his parents, and “mom and dad approve,” according to an item last week in the New York Post’s Page Six column, which credits In Touch magazine for the initial report. “His mom, Pam, likes that Camilla comes from a strict Catholic family, and loves that she does so much work with a children’s charity,” Page Six said, quoting an In Touch source. “Pam thinks Camilla could be the girl Tim has been waiting for!” Here’s the link to the story: www.nypost. com/p/pagesix/tim_tebow_introduces_camilla_belle_wl8S5J9u5EYGn2G1mCkzmI.

Englewood rolls in season opener Pirate wrestlers turn in an impressive outing against Lutheran By Tom Munds

tmunds@ourcoloradonews.com Englewood’s wrestlers gave the home crowd a lot to cheer about as the Pirates won their opening season dual match 5112 over Lutheran. “I am very pleased with the way all our guys wrestled tonight,” Pirates coach Jim Potter said. “Our veterans did a good job and I really liked to see the way our first year wrestlers responded tonight.” Things didn’t go as well Dec. 8 as Englewood lost to Liberty 70-12. To finish out the month, the Pirates wrestled rival Alameda in dual meet competition Dec. 12 (after press deadline) and travel to Denver North High School for the Dec. 15 tournament to close out the 2012 portion of the schedule. The first match of 2013 is scheduled Jan. 5 on the road at Westminster and Jan. 12 the Pirates travel to the Colorado 7 League tournament at Elizabeth. The next home match will be the Jan. 23 dual match against Mullen. Potter said he has about 25 guys out for wrestling which is good. However, he said he has several heavyweights but only has one wrestler under 130 pounds and he is a freshman. That means the Pirates will forfeit the three lower weights. They also don’t currently have a wrestler at 182 pounds. The gaps in the roster means the Pirates

Pirate 220 pounder Ben McFarland works to pin Lutheran’s Bobby Glandon. McFarland got the pin and Englewod won the dual match, 51-12. Photo by Tom Munds usually spot a dual match opponent 24 points, a large challenge to overcome. However, the Dec. 6 dual match brought together two teams of about the same size. Englewood and Lutheran had two double forfeits, meaning neither team had a wrestler at the weight. But Lutheran had three more unfilled weights so Englewood had an 18 point edge going into the match. The first weight in dual match competition is rotated through the 13 weights. The Dec. 6 dual match started at 145 pounds where Pirate wrestler Shane Menefee’s conditioning paid off. He was trailing 8-2 in the

early going but he came back strong, particularly in the third period, to score an 11-8 decision. Later in the match, Ben McFarland scored his first varsity win as he pinned Lutheran’s 190 pounder Bobby Glandon late in the first period. After his win, he said he originally came out for wrestling to help stay in shape for football. “I came out to see what wrestling was like and I found I really liked the sport,” he said. “However, I also found out that being in shape to play football doesn’t mean you are in shape for wrestling. I am learning

H S t w

wrestling moves but I am also working hard on conditioning to build my stamina so I m don’t run out of gas late in a match.” He smiled when he talked about his firstg varsity pin. “I was nervous in the beginning of the match but I got over that and I kept telling myself I could beat him,” he said. “I just pressed my effort to take him down and, when I put him on his back, I was confident I could get the pin.” He said, while he is working on building his stamina, he also is in the weight room working to get stronger. “I know I need to be stronger at this weight,” he said. “I am in the weight room a lot and, in there, I am doing a lot of reps with light weights and also doing some heavy weight lifting to build strength so I can be more competitive at 190.” Teammate and returning letterman Nolan Severa had a forfeit but agreed to wrestle an exhibition match but that was called off in the second period. “This is another season and I am a better wrestler because, over the summer, I lifted weights and worked out like a madman,” he said after the match. “I come into this season a lot stronger. Also, I am a lot more confident in my wrestling skills and I am lot more determined to win matches this season.” Severa said he is best on his feet because he works to score points by taking the opponent to the mat, letting him up and taking him down again. He said his favorite move is the double-leg takedown. “I am in good shape, I am stronger and I have the conditioning to go full speed six minutes if necessary,” he said. “I want to win some matches but my season goal is to qualify and to wrestler at state.”

Shorthanded Pirate girls lose to Sheridan Rash of injuries meant Englewood had a young team on the court By Tom Munds

tmunds@ourcoloradonews.com Injuries made it necessary for Englewood to take the court Dec. 7 against Sheridan with only two players with varsity basketball experience on the roster. “We have been hit really hard by injuries and tonight, we only have four girls on the roster who have played high school basketball at any level,” coach Adrianne Thompson said after the 45-27 loss. “Our inexperience really showed out there tonight. Our two varsity veterans took almost every shot and we had a whole lot of unforced turnovers that can be attributed to the inexperience of our players. We’ll just keep working and trying to get better.” The Pirates close out the 2012 portion of the schedule at home Dec. 14 against Jefferson and Dec. 18 at home against Arvada. The courts go dark Dec. 21 as the school closes down for holiday break. Practice resumes in early January and the Pirate girls open the 2013 portion of the schedule Jan. 8 at Fort Morgan. The Pirates came into the season with a roster made up of several girls who saw at least some varsity basketball playing time and a number of players new to varsity competition. Injuries sidelined four players expected

to see action against Sheridan. So, Englewood played the Dec. 7 game with two returning letter winners, five freshmen, one sophomore and a senior who was playing varsity basketball for the first time. “This was the first varsity basketball experience for the majority of our girls and it is a big transition from even junior varsity so it was hard on our players,” the coach said after the game. “We didn’t have the experienced players available tonight to run our offense. That put additional pressure on our guards, Kadie (Kavinsky) and Mason (Brainard). They wound up taking almost all the shots because, even when they were open, our younger players hesitated to shoot the basketball.” Thompson added that she saw some good things on the court against Sheridan and said the coaches will continue to stress fundamentals and help the players improve their basketball skills. The coach said this, her second year, is a different season as there is a new coaching staff helping implement her system. She said he staff is working to help the players improve every aspect of their game. She said volunteer coach Josh Pavlovich is heading up working on physical conditioning, Katie Cardon is heading the junior varsity and is the assistant varsity coach and Mekka Lebkey is helping coach on all levels. “We have a lot of young players with good athletic abilities but we are working with them on their basketball skills,” the coach said. “We have improved 150 percent since we started practice but we still have a long way to go.”

Englewood’s Mason Brainard battles two defenders as she drives to the basket in the Dec. 7 game agains Sheridan. Brainard made the basket but Sheridan won the game, 45-27. Photo by Tom Munds Sophomore Madison “Dolly” Ostrowski played center for the Pirates against Sheridan. “It was very rough out there tonight,” she said after the game. “Our coach Josh Pavlovich helps me work on getting position and boxing out the other center under the boards. Tonight, the Sheridan center was too big and too strong. She set up and I just couldn’t move her.” Ostrowski got a offensive rebound and scored on the play. She said it was fun to score for her team. She said she is having more fun playing basketball than she has in the past. She said the coaches are helping her work on condi-

tioning. They also are working to help her establish and maintain position so she can control the boards. Kadie Kavinsky led the scoring with 13 points and senior Mason Brainard had 12. “We played hard tonight and it was a tough game,” Brainard said after the game. “This is a determined team. I have never seen players work this hard to learn the system and improve their skills in four years here playing varsity basketball at Englewood. We have a lot of potential and we can learn from tonight. The young players worked hard and played hard tonight and our team will get stronger and better as we get our injured players back in the lineup.”

Toms take home state crown

By Daniel P. Johnson

priate answer: “If we’re going, we may as well win,” Arbogast said. The Toms did just that as they edged out Grandview by a single point at the Denver Coliseum on Dec. 7 to take home the school’s first state championship in the Poms category since 1994. “It feels really good, but it still hasn’t quite sunk in yet and I’m still kind of in shock that it happened,” Bruhn, 17, said. “I think we hoped and prayed that what we

djohnson@ourcoloradonews.com

CENTENNIAL - Before the Colorado High School Activities Association’s State Spirit competition, Arapahoe Toms co-captains Nicole Bruhn and Amanda Arbogast were asked a simple question: d Can you win? The girls, who have been friends since middle school, shot each other a quick tglance, smiled and followed with an appro-

did was enough (to win). We felt good about it as a team. All the competition was so good and it was really cool that it did pay off.” Arbogast and Bruhn were certainly hands-on when it came to preparations for the routines the Toms performed at state. “We picked out the music and came up with the routine,” Bruhn said. “We really wanted to make the dance our own.” Their coach, Kay Seastone, was on board with the decision. “These two (Arbogast and Bruhn) are ex-

cellent representatives of what it means to be an Arapahoe Tom,” Seastone said. “I’ve seen them grow so much over the last four years. They looked up to the older girls on the team when they were younger, and now they are the ones setting the example. “It’s been great to see them both mature and they put so much into this.” “We worked so hard the last four years and to have it pay off with state title in our senior year is the perfect ending,” Bruhn said.

Renovation: Project will take 11 months Renovation continues from Page 1

Building Excellent Schools Today (BEST) grant. Brian Hart is managing the project for Haselden Construction, the company selected to build the project. “This will be a three-phase project that will take about 11 months,” Hart told the audience of about 40 people. “Phase one will take about five months and will begin in late December or early January. That is when we will mobilize our equipment to begin remodeling the south half of the building while the students attend classes in the north half of the building.” He said all workers will undergo background checks and will be required to wear stickers on their hard hats, identifying who they are and that they have undergone the required background check. Crews will erect wooden partitions between the construction site and the student area. That is to make sure construction workers can’t go into the student area and students can’t go into the construction area. “We will begin phase two in June 2013,” Hart said. “Student will be moved to the south half of the building and we will fence the northern half of the school to begin work inside and

outside the building.” Outside work includes installation of windows and creating a new parking lot at the north end of the site, plus crews will be moving the building entrance from Chenango to the west side adjacent to the present parking lot. Hart said about 90 percent of the work will be done inside the building and work hours will be from 6 a.m. until 6 p.m., so there should be very little noise to disturb neighbors. A resident asked about the route and amount of construction traffic. Hart said there will be no heavy construction equipment involved in this project. He said most construction-related traffic will be relatively small trucks delivering supplies and equipment. The general route is to come in off Broadway to the delivery area adjacent to the school. Another resident asked about recycling and environmental construction. “We are seeking to meet the LEED silver certification confirming that the project is environmentally friendly,” Hart said. “One of the certification requirements is that 50 percent of construction debris be recycled. Most of our project recycles about 75 percent.” Colorado’s Finest Alternative High School opened in 1980 and was one

of the first alternative high schools in the state. It has always been located in the former Scenic View Elementary School building at 2323 W. Baker Ave. The building is too small and temporary classrooms have been added. Inside the former elementary school, there are no classroom walls, a very small gymnasium and no facilities to offer school lunches. The new location will mean, for the first time, the alternative high school will have lunch facilities, a full-size gymnasium and locker rooms. When the project is completed, there be a number of additions to the alternative high school programs. Those additions will include the district’s new cosmetology program, a video editing and production program and a science, technology, engineering and math laboratory. Bobbie Skaggs-Renaud, CFAHS principal, said the new campus will follow the traditional calendar, and classes will be in session from 7:55 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. She said there are about 350 students at the alternative high school this year and she expects about the same number of students will be enrolled when the new facility opens. That number is expected grow to near the school’s capacity of 570 students.

proved the addition of six (6) wells to the ECCV Well Field, additional sources of replacement water to the ECCV Augmentation Plan approved in Case No. 02CW403, and a recharge project in the Beebe Draw (the “Beebe Draw Recharge Project”). The Water Court also approved a plan for augmentation to replace the out-of-priority depletions created by the pumping of wells located on 70 Ranch (“70 Ranch Augmentation Plan”) and a recharge project on 70 Ranch (“70 Ranch Recharge Project”).

ECCV also seeks Saturday, a determination that it can replace the historical return flow obligations for its Burlington-Barr a n d FR IC O- Ba r r s h a r e s th a t w e r e changed in Case No. 02CW403 with recharge accretions from its reusable water supplies in the Beebe Draw aquifer, using the Unit Response Functions (“URFs”) decreed in Case Nos. 02CW404 and 03CW442. 3. Description of Barr Lake. 3.1. Barr Lake. Barr Lake is an off-channel reservoir located in Sections 15, 21, 22, 23, 26, 27, 28, and 33, Township 1 South, Range 66 West of the 6th P.M., Adams County, Colorado. Barr Lake is an enlargement of the original Oasis Reservoir. ECCV is a shareholder in the Burlington Barr Lake Division of FRICO and the Barr Lake Division of FRICO, and has the right to store water in Barr Lake. ECCV also has the ability to store water in Barr Lake on a “space available” basis subject to and in compliance with its agreements with FRICO, and any subsequent agreements they may enter. 3.1.1. Location of Dam. At a point at the center of Section 23, Township 1 South, Range 66 West of the 6th P.M., Adams County, Colorado. 3.1.2. Surface Area. 1,900 acres at high water line. 3.1.3. Storage Height. 34 feet. 3.1.4. Capacity. 30,057 acre-feet, dead storage is less than 300 acre-feet. 3.2. Barr Lake Toe Drains. FRICO constructed a toe drain system into the Barr Lake dam to drain the seepage in and through the dam, and an interceptor ditch to collect underflow surfacing from beneath the structure. The water in the toe drain system is measured by a gage on the collection trench fed by the toe drain and then released into the Beebe Canal. Flows in the interceptor ditch are measured at the head of the Beebe Seep Canal. 4. Sources of ECCV’s Fully Consumable Water Stored in Barr Lake. 4.1. The 70 Ranch Water Rights decreed in Case Nos. 02CW404 and 03CW442; 4.2. ECCV’s FRICO-Barr and Burlington-Barr shares decreed in Case No. 02CW403; 4.3. FRICO’s MultiPurpose Water Right decreed in Case No. 02CW403 (limited to the extent of ECCV’s pro rata ownership of FRICO shares, or as otherwise allocated by and between FRICO shareholders); 4.4. The fully consumable portion of all water rights claimed in ECCV’s pending applications in Case Nos. 06CW40, 11CW151/ 05CW58, 11CW280, 11CW285, and 12CW73; and 4.5. The fully consumable portion of ECCV’s currently owned but unchanged water sources and future acquired water sources, which include but may not be limited to shares in the New Cache la Poudre Irrigating Company, the Cache la Poudre Reservoir Company, and the Ogilvy Irrigation and Land Company. Once the currently owned and future acquired water sources are changed ECCV will follow the procedures in paragraph 19 of the decree in Case No. 02CW403 and paragraphs 25 and 58.5 of the decree entered in Case Nos. 02CW404 and 03CW442 to add those rights as additional sources of replacement supply. 5. Determination of the Claimed Seepage from Barr Lake. 5.1. Toe Drain and Interceptor Ditch Seepage. ECCV seeks a determination of its pro rata portion of seepage attributable to ECCV’s fully consumable water stored in Barr Lake that is discharged to the Beebe Canal through the Barr Lake toe drains and interceptor ditch. The precise amount of this seepage varies based upon the total amount of water in Barr Lake, the amount in ECCV’s Barr Lake accounts, and other variables such as evaporation and precipitation. Accordingly, as part of determining ECCV’s pro rata seepage, ECCV will seek to adjudicate a methodology that will account for the variables and enable the calculation of ECCV’s pro rata seepage. 5.2. Ground Water Seepage. ECCV seeks a determination of the amount of ground water seepage into the Beebe Draw aquifer that is attributable to ECCV’s fully consumable water stored in Barr Lake and the adjudication of a methodology to evaluate the calculation of such water. ECCV is not claiming seepage on water stored in Barr Lake that is allocated for ditch loss replacement or historic return flow obligations. ECCV is in the process of gathering data from monitoring wells in and around Barr Lake. The data from the monitoring wells will be used to determine the amount of underground seepage from Barr Lake. 6. Determination of the Use of Recharge Accretions in the Beebe Draw to Replace Historical Return Flow Obligations. ECCV seeks a determination that it can replace the historical return flow obligations for its changed Burlington-Barr and FRICO-Barr shares with recharge accretions from its reusable supplies in the Beebe Draw aquifer. ECCV’s water rights, as described in paragraph 4, have been and/or will be decreed for use as a replacement source of supply, which includes the replacement of historical return flow obligations. ECCV will use the URFs decreed in Case Nos. 02CW404 and 03CW442 to determine the timing and amount of the recharge accretions in the Beebe Draw in order to replace the historical return flows from the Burlington-Barr and FRICO-Barr shares in timing, location, and amount. 7. Owners of Land upon which Structures are Located. The Farmers Reservoir and Irrigation Company (“FRICO”), 80 South 27th Avenue, Brighton, Colorado 80601, is the fee owner of Barr Lake and the Burlington Ditch. The United Diversion Facility No. 3 and the land at the point of diversion for United Reservoir No. 3 are owned by United Water and Sanitation District (“United”), 8301 East Prentice Avenue #100, Greenwood Village, Colorado 80111.

12CW257 East Cherry Creek Valley Water and Sanitation District, acting by and through the East Cherry Creek Valley Water and Sanitation District Water Activity Enterprise, Inc. (“ECCV”), 6201 S. Gun Club Road, Aurora, CO 80016 (c/o William B. Tourtillott, Esq., Brian M. Nazarenus, Esq., Sheela S. Stack, Esq., Susan M. Ryan, Esq., RYLEY CARLOCK & APPLEWHITE, 1700 Lincoln Street, Suite 3500, Denver, Colorado 80203, Telephone: 303-863-7500, Attorneys for ECCV), APPLICATION FOR DETERMINATION OF WATER RIGHTS, IN ADAMS, ARAPAHOE, DENVER, DOUGLAS, ELBERT, JEFFERSON, MORGAN, AND WELD COUNTIES, 2. Introduction. ECCV has developed an integrated system for the diversion, accretion, collection, storage, transmission, and treatment of its water rights. The integrated system, which is also referred to as the Water Supply Project or the Northern Project, is designed to provide ECCV with a longterm, sustainable municipal water supply for its service area located in Arapahoe County, Colorado. A map of ECCV’s service area is attached as Exhibit 1. According to ECCV’s Water Conservation Plan, at full build out which is expected to occur in twenty years, ECCV will require approximately 12,000 to 14,000 acre-feet of water. The Water Court has previously decreed various components of the Water Supply Project. In Case No. 02CW403, the Water Court approved a plan for augmentation (“ECCV Augmentation Plan”) for ECCV’s Upper Beebe Draw wellfield (“ECCV Well Field”), as described in paragraph 15.1 of that decree. The ECCV Augmentation Plan allowed for the addition of wells to the augmentation plan and for the use of additional sources of substitute supply to replace the out-of-priority depletions resulting from pumping the ECCV Well Field. Case No. 02CW403 also decreed a change in use for ECCV’s shares in the Burlington Ditch Reservoir and Land Company (the “Burlington-Barr Shares”) and ECCV’s shares in the Farmers Reservoir and Irrigation Company (the “FRICO-Barr Shares”). The decree in Case No. 02CW403 excluded Barr Lake toe drain seepage from the quantification of the historical consumptive use associated with ECCV’s shares. In Case Nos. 02CW404 and 03CW442, the Court approved the addition of six (6) wells to the ECCV Well Field, additional sources of replacement water to the ECCV Augmentation Plan approved in Case No. 02CW403, and a recharge project in the Beebe Draw (the “Beebe Draw Recharge Project”). The Water Court also approved a plan for augmentation to replace the out-of-priority depletions created by the pumping of wells located on 70 Ranch (“70 Ranch Augmentation Plan”) and a recharge project on 70 Ranch (“70 Ranch Recharge Project”). By this application, ECCV seeks a determination of: 1) its pro rata portion of seepage attributable to ECCV’s fully consumable water stored in Barr Lake that is discharged to the Beebe Canal through the Barr Lake toe drains and interceptor ditch; and 2) the amount of ground water seepage into the Beebe Draw aquifer that is attributable to ECCV’s

According to ECCV’s Water Conservation Plan, at full build out which is expected to occur in twenty years, ECCV will require approximately 12,000 to 14,000 acre-feet of water. The Water Court has previously decreed various components of the Water Supply Project.

The Water Court also approved a plan for augmentation to replace the out-of-priority depletions created by the pumping of wells located on 70 Ranch (“70 Ranch Augmentation Plan”) and a recharge project on 70 Ranch (“70 Ranch Recharge Project”). By this application, ECCV seeks a determination of: 1) its pro rata portion of seepage attributable to ECCV’s fully consumable water stored in Barr Lake that is discharged to the Beebe Canal through the Barr Lake toe drains and interceptor ditch; and 2) the amount of ground water seepage into the Beebe Draw aquifer that is attributable to ECCV’s fully consumable water stored in Barr Lake. ECCV seeks to use its pro rata portion of these reusable water supplies as a source of substitute supply for the ECCV Augmentation Plan decreed in Case No. 02CW403. ECCV also seeks a determination that it can replace the historical return flow obligations for its Burlington-Barr a n d FR IC O- Ba r r s h a r e s th a t w e r e changed in Case No. 02CW403 with recharge accretions from its reusable water supplies in the Beebe Draw aquifer, using the Unit Response Functions (“URFs”) decreed in Case Nos. 02CW404 and 03CW442. 3. Description of Barr Lake. 3.1. Barr Lake. Barr Lake is an off-channel reservoir located in Sections 15, 21, 22, 23, 26, 27, 28, and 33, Township 1 South, Range 66 West of the 6th P.M., Adams County, Colorado. Barr Lake is an enlargement of the original Oasis Reservoir. ECCV is a shareholder in the Burlington Barr Lake Division of FRICO and the Barr Lake Division of FRICO, and has the right to store water in Barr Lake. ECCV also has the ability to store water in Barr Lake on a “space available” basis subject to and in compliance with its agreements with FRICO, and any subsequent agreements they may enter. 3.1.1. Location of Dam. At a point at the center of Section 23, Township 1 South, Range 66 West of the 6th P.M., Adams County, Colorado. 3.1.2. Surface Area. 1,900 acres at high water line. 3.1.3. Storage Height. 34 feet. 3.1.4. Capacity. 30,057 acre-feet, dead storage is less than 300 acre-feet. 3.2. Barr Lake Toe Drains. FRICO constructed a toe drain system into the Barr Lake dam to drain the seepage in and through the dam, and an interceptor ditch to collect underflow surfacing from beneath the structure. The water in the toe drain system is measured by a gage on the collection trench fed by the toe drain and then released into the Beebe Canal. Flows in the interceptor ditch are measured at the head of the Beebe Seep Canal. 4. Sources of ECCV’s Fully Consumable Water Stored in Barr Lake. 4.1. The 70 Ranch Water Rights decreed in Case Nos. 02CW404 and 03CW442; 4.2. ECCV’s FRICO-Barr and Burlington-Barr shares decreed in Case No. 02CW403; 4.3. FRICO’s MultiPurpose Water Right decreed in Case No. 02CW403 (limited to the extent of ECCV’s pro rata ownership of FRICO shares, or as otherwise allocated by and between FRICO shareholders); 4.4. The fully consumable portion of all water rights claimed in ECCV’s pending applications in Case Nos. 06CW40, 11CW151/ 05CW58 , 11CW280, 11CW285, and 12CW73; and 4.5. The fully consumable portion of ECCV’s currently owned but unchanged water sources and future acquired water sources, which include but may not be limited to shares in the New Cache la Poudre Irrigating Company, the Cache la Poudre Reservoir Company, and the Ogilvy Irrigation and Land Company. Once the currently owned and future acquired water sources are changed ECCV will follow the procedures in paragraph 19 of the decree in Case No. 02CW403 and paragraphs 25 and 58.5 of the decree entered in Case Nos. 02CW404 and 03CW442 to add those rights as additional sources of replacement supply. 5. Determination of the Claimed Seepage from Barr Lake. 5.1. Toe Drain and Interceptor Ditch Seepage. ECCV seeks a determination of its pro rata portion of seepage attributable to ECCV’s fully consumable water stored in Barr Lake that is discharged to the Beebe Canal through the Barr Lake toe drains and interceptor ditch. The precise amount of this seepage varies based upon the total amount of water in Barr Lake, the amount in ECCV’s Barr Lake accounts,

ited to shares in the New Cache la Poudre Irrigating Company, the Cache la Poudre Reservoir Company, and the Ogilvy Irrigation and Land Company. Once the currently owned and future acquired water sources are changed ECCV will follow the procedures in paragraph 19 of the decree in Case No. 02CW403 and paragraphs 25 and 58.5 of the decree entered in Case Nos. 02CW404 and 03CW442 to add those rights as additional sources of replacement supply. 5. Determination of the Claimed Seepage from Barr Lake. 5.1. Toe Drain and Interceptor Ditch Seepage. ECCV seeks a determination of its pro rata portion of seepage attributable to ECCV’s fully consumable water stored in Barr Lake that is discharged to the Beebe Canal through the Barr Lake toe drains and interceptor ditch. The precise amount of this seepage varies based upon the total amount of water in Barr Lake, the amount in ECCV’s Barr Lake accounts, and other variables such as evaporation and precipitation. Accordingly, as part of determining ECCV’s pro rata seepage, ECCV will seek to adjudicate a methodology that will account for the variables and enable the calculation of ECCV’s pro rata seepage. 5.2. Ground Water Seepage. ECCV seeks a determination of the amount of ground water seepage into the Beebe Draw aquifer that is attributable to ECCV’s fully consumable water stored in Barr Lake and the adjudication of a methodology to evaluate the calculation of such water. ECCV is not claiming seepage on water stored in Barr Lake that is allocated for ditch loss replacement or historic return flow obligations. ECCV is in the process of gathering data from monitoring wells in and around Barr Lake. The data from the monitoring wells will be used to determine the amount of underground seepage from Barr Lake. 6. Determination of the Use of Recharge Accretions in the Beebe Draw to Replace Historical Return Flow Obligations. ECCV seeks a determination that it can replace the historical return flow obligations for its changed Burlington-Barr and FRICO-Barr shares with recharge accretions from its reusable supplies in the Beebe Draw aquifer. ECCV’s water rights, as described in paragraph 4, have been and/or will be decreed for use as a replacement source of supply, which includes the replacement of historical return flow obligations. ECCV will use the URFs decreed in Case Nos. 02CW404 and 03CW442 to determine the timing and amount of the recharge accretions in the Beebe Draw in order to replace the historical return flows from the Burlington-Barr and FRICO-Barr shares in timing, location, and amount. 7. Owners of Land upon which Structures are Located. The Farmers Reservoir and Irrigation Company (“FRICO”), 80 South 27th Avenue, Brighton, Colorado 80601, is the fee owner of Barr Lake and the Burlington Ditch. The United Diversion Facility No. 3 and the land at the point of diversion for United Reservoir No. 3 are owned by United Water and Sanitation District (“United”), 8301 East Prentice Avenue #100, Greenwood Village, Colorado 80111.
