Littleton pot-shop policies must wait City council decides to keep out marijuana establishments until Oct. 1 By Jennifer Smith

Gauthier and fellow Cutthroats player Ben Wilson were on the ice with the Littleton Bantam Sabres at the South Suburban Family Sports Center in Centennial. The Feb. 19 event was designed to highlight hockey’s popularity in the community.

CHILLIN’ WITH THE PROS

Anyone itching to capitalize on pot in Littleton is going to have to wait to scratch. City council on Feb.19 passed a temporary moratorium on marijuana establishments, effective until Oct. 1 — the date by which state law allows municipalities to adopt regulations if the state fails to come up with its own. Councilor Jerry Valdes cast the only no vote, worried about usurping the rights of the voters who passed Amendment 64, which legalized marijuana for adults, in small amounts, for recreational use. “Did we put a moratorium on alcohol when it was being discussed it was going to be more available?” he asked. “For some reason, I think just because it’s marijuana, we’re reacting this way.” Councilor Jim Taylor agreed in principle. “I think marijuana ought to be legalized and then tax the hell out of it,” he said. But he’s concerned about pot clubs, where people could gather and smoke their Marijuana continues on Page 27

Coffman introduces targeted spending bill Across-the-board cuts viewed as a threat to national defense By Deborah Grigsby

dgrigsby@ourcoloradonews.com Just days before federal sequestration could begin, U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman introduced a bill that would stop automatic across-the-board spending cuts targeting the nation’s military. Coffman, a combat veteran and member of the House Armed Services Committee, introduced HR 804 in Washington Feb. 25 and said his plan of directed cuts will reduce costs by $500 billion over the next POSTAL ADDRESS

decade, but not compromise defense capabilities. “Our country deserves better than sequestration,” Coffman said in a press statement. “Sequestration will jeopardize our national security and hurt our military personnel, their families and our veterans.” Owen Loftus, a spokesman for the congressman, said the bill is essentially a Coffman replacement for the broadbrush cut in defense spending only. “Rep. Coffman agrees there needs to be cuts in federal spending, but there are better ways of doing it without jeopardizing

military capability, Loftus said. Sequestration is part of the Budget Control Act of 2011 deal, which traded increases to the nation’s debt limit in exchange for spending cuts to reduce the deficit. Although the intent was to have acrossthe-board cuts divided equally between defense and nondefense discretionary spending, it served only as a placeholder until Congress could come up with an alternative plan to reach the same deficit reduction goal. Congress failed to come up with an alternative before the end of last year, and only could agree on a two-month delay that expires at the beginning of March. Now, under the sequester, the Defense Department faces more than $500 billion in Coffman continues on Page 27

Resolution is brief break from brawling On the heels of a contentious week in the General Assembly that involved some heavy-duty debate on — you guessed it — gun-control issues, there came a moment where even the hardest of the hard-nosed legislators shared some ... um, love? No, really. It was straight out of a Disney movie. The only missing was an Elton John soundtrack. “We had been fighting all week and we came together,” said Rep. Tracy KraftTharp, D-Arvada. “Even when I left the floor I still was in tears.” Kraft-Tharp was referring to her fellow legislators’ gushing support of a resolution that she sponsored in the House of Representatives, which proclaimed Feb. 20 as Awareness Day for Individuals with Developmental Disabilities. The resolution recognized persons with developmental disabilities, as well as those who provide services to members of that community. “It was a moment for us to recognize the courage of people with these disabilities,” Kraft-Tharp said. The resolution proved to be a tearjerker for a few House members, some of whom shared personal accounts of how disabled persons have had positive impacts on their lives. Rep. Lois Landgraf said her 40-year-old son has been developmentally challenged since he suffered a brain injury at the age of 17. “From a grateful mother, thank you,” the teary-eyed Fountain Republican told Kraft-Tharp.

But perhaps the most touching moment came when Rep. Jim Wilson, R-Salida, choked back tears as he recalled spending time with a young, mentally disabled girl named Lisa, while he worked in a “hayhauling” business as a young man. “Every time she saw me, she’d come up to me and say, `I love you, Jim Wilson,’” he said. “And it irritated the heck out of me because that’s the way it was supposed to be when you’re a macho guy.” Wilson said that the type of “unconditional love” he received from Lisa “needs to be in this chamber, in this state,” and that, in a sense, people with developmental disabilities are “a gift from God.” “They teach us what we forget when we get older and become jaded,” Wilson said. It’s not every day when all lawmakers agree on … well, anything. So it was refreshing to see the two sides take a break from the Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robot-like action that’s been going on lately - albeit, temporarily.

An idea to pedal

By the way, Sen. Andy Kerr co-sponsored the resolution that honored mem-

bers of the developmentally disabled community. Perhaps he came up with the idea while he was on one of his many bike rides to the Capitol. The Lakewood Democrat has set a personal goal to ride his specialized, Roubaix brand road bike to work, for at least half of the days of this legislative session. Kerr has been using Twitter to provide updates on his efforts. “It’s a good way to put pressure on myself,” Kerr said. “And it’s a good way to get the word out that it’s a viable and healthy way to get to your job.” Now, I walk several blocks from my place to the Capitol every day. But that effort seems puny in comparison to a guy who rides his bike all the way from Lakewood. With all these marathon-like legislative sessions going on in the Capitol these days — and all the free food being carted in on a daily basis — it’s no wonder that lawmakers like Kerr grab hold of every exercise opportunity that they can.

Quote of the week

“I’m not Akin, man.” — Rep. Joe Salazar, D-Thornton, Feb. 19. It was a rough week for Joe Salazar. The freshman Democrat found himself embroiled in a controversy — one that garnered national attention, especially in conservative media outlets — over a rape comment that he made during a recent floor debate on a bill that seeks to ban concealed weapons from being carried on college campuses. Republicans have pounced on the com-

ment, likening it to failed Missouri Senate candidate Todd Akin’s infamous interview from last year, where he said that women who are victims of “legitimate rape” don’t get pregnant. Salazar has since apologized for his comments, and has said that Republicans are playing politics with his unfortunate comment, as Colorado Community Media reported in a previous story. I recently took part in an interview about the Salazar controversy with Colorado Public Radio’s Bente Birkeland, and the Denver Post’s Lynn Bartels. You can find that conversation at www.kunc.org/ post/capitol-conversation-rape-commententers-colorado-gun-debate

Tweet of the week

From Rep. Polly Lawrence, R-Littleton: “Been around horse**** all week, I needed some gun powder to balance it out.” Lawrence posted a picture with her tweet that showed her holding a gun on what looks to be a shooting range. Now, the question is: Was she literally referring to being around manure all week, or was she opining on some of the stuff being said during debates of the gun bills? I’ll just leave that one up to your imagination. Vic Vela is the legislative reporter for Colorado Community Media. He can be reached at vvela@ourcoloradonews.com.

Kids pour their hearts into Freedom Week Sertomans honor winners of student essay contest By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@ourcoloradonews.com “I was born into a world of destruction,” wrote Issa Grimes in his award-winning 2013 Sertoma Freedom Week essay. “The ability to walk outside was not an option.” True freedom is only achieved, he said, when people are “compelled to look inward to find their inner freedom.” One might expect such words from a wise old man with a lifetime of experience and struggles to overcome.

Grimes is a middle-schooler. He told the audience he was born in Africa, a world of war in the 1990s. He was adopted in 2003 and now attends Oberon Middle School in Arvada. He was the Front Range District winner in Sertoma’s essay contest, part of the club’s annual Freedom Week celebration. “The purpose of Freedom Week is to involve our community in a celebration of liberty, the central concept of our nation’s historical beginning,” reads the flier handed out during the 30th annual luncheon at Pinehurst Country Club in Denver. “We strive to promote an awareness of how our lives have been enriched by the premise of freedom.” The Central Colorado District winner was Gabriella Lorance, who attends Most

Precious Blood in Denver. She wrote of what life would be like as a girl her age in Afghanistan, facing forced marriage and punishment for simply revealing her face. “I showcase my face and am often told I am beautiful,” wrote Lorance. “I sing. I dance. I am free.” Littleton Sertoman Dave Oppenheim helped judge the essays and said it was refreshing to see how much thought the kids put into defining “freedom.” “Kids get a pretty bad rap, especially in the paper, and this is the good side of them,” said Oppenheim, who won the essay contest himself in 1963. “These are the kids who really don’t make the noise and don’t get the attention. Only the bad kids get the attention, so everybody thinks they’re all bad, and that’s just not true.”

LOCAL WINNERS Students from 36 schools submitted entries in the 2013 Sertoma Freedom Week essay contest, with one winner chosen from each. Each earned $100 and a plaque, with the two regional winners earning an additional $200. Local winners include: Jasmin Miller, Englewood Leadership Academy Reagan Shane, Cresthill Middle School Natalie Garner, Ranch View Middle School Ji Yoon Park, Rocky Heights Middle School Jacob Barnard, Saint Thomas More Marissa Steagall, Shepherd of the Hills Christian Gutierrez, Englewood Middle School Alexsandra Raburn, Euclid Middle School Emily Kastner, Goddard Middle School Emma Parkhurst, Newton Middle School Cami Goldsberry, Powell Middle School

Proposed apartments gain rare consensus County Line plan popular so far By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@ourcoloradonews.com Development often causes a stir among Littleton residents, but Littleton Commons is sailing through calm seas so far. “When proposals are presented that are rational … I’m glad to come support them,” said Paul Bingham. He is actively involved in a group that opposed increasing the density at Nevada Place downtown, which council approved, and is gearing up to fight a proposal for a five-story apartment building on the site of the old sheriff’s building at Alamo Avenue

and Bemis Street. On Feb. 19, Littleton City Council unanimously approved on first reading the Littleton Commons plan for 385 units that would lease for up to $2,100 a month. Assuming second reading on March 5 plays out similarly, the 18-acre plot at the southeast corner of County Line Road and Erickson Boulevard will house three- and four-story buildings composed of one-story units with up to three bedrooms. The complex would feature a clubhouse, fitness center, pool, barbecue area and 25 percent open space. Developer Mark Kerslake of the Province Group also owns the 12 acres across Erickson and intends to build retail there. He tried for six years to fill all 30 acres with retail, but says challenges with topography and access hindered those efforts.

Councilor Bruce Stahlman wanted to ensure the project council approves is the project that gets built, noting some lack of specificity in the architecture. Staff pointed out the minutiae gets hammered out further along in the process. “This really is a rezone and not a redecorate,” noted Mayor Debbie Brinkman. Councilor Peggy Cole wondered whether there are too many new apartments cropping up too fast — also on the drawing board are Nevada Place downtown, Broadstone at Littleton Station at the old sheriff’s building and Littleton Village at the former Marathon site, which is currently zoned to include retail, apartments and single-family homes. And although it’s technically in the town of Columbine Valley, there’s a proposal to build 29 patio homes at the old Willowcroft

Farm at Bowles Avenue and Platte Canyon Road. “If everybody is laying eggs at the same time, we’re going to have a lot of eggs to eat,” said Cole. She also noted that many Littleton Commons residents will shop in Highlands Ranch, as the site is south of County Line Road. But Brian Brewster, owner of NoNo’s Café across the street, noted lots of Highlands Ranch folks patronize his establishment, so it’s a fair trade. He was there to voice his support for the project. Even Jim DuBose, who admits he’s opposed most projects in the past, urged council to approve the project. “It’s better than any I’ve ever seen before,” he said. “Be still my heart,” joked Councilor Phil Cernanec.

Lots of parents today might have experimented with drugs over the years and therefore think they’re hip to the scene. They’re dead wrong, according to Bob Stutman, a 25-year veteran of the Drug Enforcement Administration who says today’s drug culture is vastly different than it was even a decade ago. “Our kids are using drugs today for which there is virtually no room for error,” he told an audience at Arapahoe Stutman Community College Feb. 20. “They make a mistake, and they’re dead.” Stutman has lots of terrifying statistics floating around in his head, not the least of which is the way many kids first dip their toes into the “high” tide — huffing cooking spray. In fourth grade. And forget marijuana, which runs $200 to $400 an ounce on today’s market. Easier and cheaper are markers stored in a plastic bag with the caps off. And it’s not just kids — on average, five to six college students die on campus every day from a drug overdose or alcohol poisoning. “What’s happening today puts the crack years to shame,” Stutman said. And he should know — he’s credited with bringing the crack epidemic of the 1980s to the forefront of national attention.

Sixty-five percent of addicts today are hooked on things that were meant to help - Ritalin and Adderall, both meant to control attention-deficit disorder, can mimic the effects of cocaine. They come in timerelease capsules, but crushed into powder, the effects hit all at once. The most insidious drug, says Stutman, is oxycodone, a common prescription pain reliever. Crushed, it acts like heroin. One young man opened Stutman’s eyes to the perils of “oxy” by comparing the high to the feeling of being held in a mother’s arms. “Think about it … the strongest emotional bond in the world can now be replicated by a pill out of a medicine chest in about eight seconds,” he said. And if you make the common mistake of thinking “my kid doesn’t do drugs,” think twice. Don’t think Jerry Garcia, think Rush Limbaugh. He was on air as an “oxy” addict for more than three years, and nobody guessed a thing. “That’s the insidiousness of this drug,” said Stutman. “They don’t slowly fall off the deep end, they go along normal and then they crash.” The good news is that “oxy” use is starting to decline. The bad news is that it’s because heroin is half the price, but 10 times stronger than it was 12 years ago. The key to prevention, says Stutman, is not law enforcement, is not shutting down the Mexican border, is not drug-prevention programs in schools — it’s parents. He suggests eating dinner together, paying attention, listening, not judging. All kids who yearn for a high are different except for one thing, says Stutman: “They all perceive they are no longer the priority of their parents.”

Council hears plans for Willowcroft Developer’s alternative could create more traffic By Sonya Ellingboe and Jennifer Smith sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com

If Garrett Baum isn’t allowed to build 29 patio homes on the old Willowcroft Manor property, he said he’ll build two-story family dwellings instead — likely increasing the population and traffic even more. Hearing lots of concerns about the possible effects of the plan during an unusually packed Columbine Valley Town Council meeting Feb. 19, staff agreed it exceeds the allowed density for the site, at 3600 W. Bowles Ave. They’d like Baum to decrease the number to 26 patio homes, still a bit above the 23 that would be allowed now.

“I bought in Columbine Valley for low density,” said Jeff Brooks from The Village, who added he’s not concerned with the design, but about traffic. Baum’s areadly come down from 31 and points out that two areas in the town currently have higher density than allowed. Mayor Gale Christy invited a representative of each homeowners’ group to speak, limiting them to five minutes each. Others weren’t permitted to speak during the meeting, which Christy described as a look at a preliminary draft. There will be a public hearing next summer. DeeDee Morland of Burning Tree said she’s opposed to any deviation from the master plan regarding density. “It devalues adjacent property,” she said. Kathy Boyd, secretary for Old Columbine, and Mary Lou Seliger of Columbine Village both echoed Morland’s concerns. Questions came up about the adjacent Grimm property. Baum said he was working on rights to it. The trustees had some questions regard-

ABOUT WILLOWCROFT Willowcroft Manor was originally the home of Joseph Bowles, one of Littleton’s most prominent settlers. The main house was built in 1884 and designed by Robert Roeschlaub, also known for the Central City Opera House. The grandiose mansion still stands on the property, along with two barns, a bunkhouse and a smokehouse. Mary Wolf visited the property every day for nearly 35 years with her late husband, Bruce, both prominent real-estate agents in the area. He grew up there after it was purchased in 1945 by his mother, Cynthia, who lived there until shortly before her death in 2005. Bruce Wolf was the executor of his mother’s estate until his death in 2008, at which time his half-brother, David Owen, took over. Owen had no interest in keeping the property and, in 2009, sold it at auction “in five minutes for $1,430,000,” according to Rocky Mountain Estate Brokers Realty’s website Mary Wolf and other members of Historic Littleton Inc. worked to get the property listed on the Colorado State Register of Historic Places in 1993. Then Colorado Preservation Inc. put it on its list of most endangered places in 2010, right alongside the state Capitol dome.

ing width of emergency access, landscape maintenance and what will happen to old trees. Police Chief Bret Cottrell wondered if the roads were public or private (they are public) and the length of the emergency exit. Representatives from Brookhaven I and II said after many discussions, one issue was consistently supported: Contrary to

staff’s opinion, they do not want access on Brookhaven Lane for the new housing and want traffic to go on the collector street, Middlefield Road. The trustees decided to defer further discussion until Feb. 26, when they were to convene for a study session. Interested parties should call the town offices at 303-7951434 for more information.

Spike in gas prices expected to slow Pinch at pump felt all over, but Colorado cheaper than most By Ryan Boldrey

rboldrey@ourcoloradonews. com Colorado’s 73-cent spike in gas prices from Jan. 22-Feb. 22 may be the largest month-to-month increase in memory, according to one area expert, but a reprieve for Centennial State drivers appears to be right around the bend. In 2011, gas prices peaked at $3.77 in mid-May and in 2012, the high was a $3.90 average on April 17. According to Wave Dreher, director of communications for AAA Colorado, prices are expected to peak sometime around mid-March this year, and barring potential conflict in the Middle East or hurricanes in the Gulf, this year’s high should be lower than the peak points of the previous two years. “We were so fortunate at the

first of the year to be so far below the national average,” Dreher said. “We are still well below the national average, and everything I’ve read says we have strong supplies here in the Rocky Mountain West.” According to Dreher, Colorado started the year at an average of $2.99 per gallon, 50 cents less than the national average. But after dropping to $2.85 in mid-January, prices were up to $3.58 per gallon as of Feb. 22. The spike brought Colorado within 20 cents of the national average, but only five states — Idaho, Montana, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming — currently have less expensive gas prices. In the south metro area, prices are about 3 cents lower than the state average, but the range varies from $3.35 at the Every Day Gas Station in Parker on the low end to $3.80 at the Town Center Drive 7-Eleven in Highlands Ranch. Prices all over the state have been going up every day since they bottomed out in mid-January. “Sure, I’ve noticed, but what

Castle Rock resident Jorge Markoss fills up at the Conoco at Founders Parkway and Interstate 25 on Feb. 21. Markoss paid 3.86 a gallon for premium gas, topping $60 on a 16-gallon tank. Gas prices in the greater Denver area have jumped 71 cents per gallon in a month’s time. Photo by Ryan Boldrey can you do?” asked Jorge Markoss of Castle Rock after pumping over $61 of premium gasoline into his wife’s vehicle at a clip of $3.86 per gallon at the Conoco at Founders Parkway and I-25. “It has been

higher in the past.” Markoss is right too, it has been higher, but the state average — which peaked at $4.09 in July 2008 — was only $3.10 on Feb. 22, 2012, exactly 48 cents less than it was

this year on the same date. Part of the reason for the huge spike, Dreher said, is the earlierthan-usual switch from winter to summer blends nationwide — which causes some refineries to go offline during the switchover. With spring coming earlier in most parts of the country this year, more states are making the switch earlier, which is driving price hikes more quickly as opposed to a slower, more gradual climb. Colorado is expected to make the switch to summer blends in mid-March, which will jump prices about 10 cents, but after that gas costs should begin to taper off, she said.

Airport lands state grant for needed improvements Safety upgrades planned for taxiway signage, lighting By Deborah Grigsby

dgrigsby@ourcoloradonews.com Centennial Airport has been awarded a $444,000 grant to upgrade fading taxiway signs and lighting. Gov. John Hickenlooper authorized the distribution of $20.6 million in state aviation fuel tax revenues Feb. 15 through 44 grants to Colorado general-aviation airports under the Aviation Discretionary Grant program, administered by the Colo-

rado Department of Transportation’s Division of Aeronautics. “We are very pleased to receive the grant from the state, which is entirely self-funded by users of the aviation system,” said Centennial Airport Executive Director Robert Olislagers. “The state has a separate grant fund program and usually funds projects that, although safety-related, are not eligible for federal funding, or are sufficiently low on the priority matrix.” The grants range in size from $3,650 to $3 million and require local or federal participation, according to a statement from Hickenlooper’s office. Projects funded typically include safety and infrastructure needs. Olislagers said Centennial will use the grant to update the taxiway and lighted sig-

nage boxes on the airfield. “The high altitude and UV exposure causes the panels to fade, requiring replacement,” he said. “We want to make sure they are legible for safety reasons.” Olislagers mentioned the airport is also anticipating another sizable federal grant to completely reconstruct the crosswind runway. Cost estimates for that project, according to Olislagers, come in at close to $6 million, with the airport footing the 10-percent match and the federal government covering the remainder, “depending on what happens with sequestration.” Pilots can expect to see new signage and panels as soon as May. Olislagers estimates some of the airport’s existing signage and lighting may be more than a decade old.

“We have improved public-use airports all across the state by leveraging these grants with local and federal matching funds,” Hickenlooper said. “These airports are critical to the economic well-being of communities as energy, tourism and business travel to local destinations continues to grow. Developing and maintaining an efficient, safe transportation system is vital to Colorado’s economic growth.” The Aviation Discretionary Grant Program was instituted by an amendment to the Colorado Constitution in 1992. Proposals from public-use airports are received and evaluated by CDOT Aeronautics staff and approved by the Aeronautical Board, which is comprised of aviation industry representatives appointed by the governor and approved by the Colorado Senate.

Cities tout jobs, development Five communities point to their achievements, goals for year By Deborah Grigsby

dgrigsby@ourcoloradonews. com

City leaders from five south metro-area communities gathered at Arapahoe Community ss on College to celebrate accomplishand ments of 2012 and preview what’s treet, in store for the coming year. The Feb. 22 panel, hosted by rther First Bank, served as platform for re to announcements, as well as goodparnatured ribbing. -795A shared vision for transportation connectivity was a common theme, but the biggest news came in the form of economic development across the community. “We really do want to have Centennial be one of those places where people want to live, work, play,” said Centennial Mayor Cathy Noon to a crowd of more than 300 entrepreneurs, nonprofit organizations, local businesses and students. “We were very proud this year that Money magazine again named Centennial as one of the safest cities in America, and that’s quite an accomplishment for a city that didn’t even exist 12 years ago.”

Local leaders gathered at Arapahoe Community College for a look at what’s in store for 2013. The free event, held Feb. 22, attracted more than 200 attendees to hear the mayors of four local cities and a Highlands Ranch official. Photo by Deborah Grigsby Noon also announced that Jones International Ltd. has submitted a zoning request to build more than 1.8 million square feet office and retail space on 42 acres of vacant land north of Ikea. “We are currently dealing with an inflow of great opportunities for infill development,” said Littleton Mayor Debbie Brinkman.

In addition to the city’s approval for a 72-unit luxury apartment building downtown, Brinkman noted multiple expansions, including a $10 million project by Mercedes Benz and Health South’s 49,000-square-foot in-patient hospital. “The fun news is that Breckenridge Brewery has applied to

rezone to move their brewery and expand to about three times the size they currently are,” she said, “and that’s about a $20 million project.” Restaurant Solutions Inc. has purchased a 65,000-square-foot vacant building on Mineral Road and plans to bring 90 jobs to the Littleton area in May.

Lone Tree Mayor Jim Gunning said his 2013 priority was maintaining property value. “Those of you who have been watching Lone Tree know it is a small city, but in terms of economic development, it’s very robust,” he said. Among Gunning’s announcements were a $107 million expansion by Sky Ridge Medical Center, a new Embassy Suites near I-25 and Lincoln Ave., a headquarters expansion by Time Warner Telecom, and the official opening of Cabela’s on Aug. 15. “In 2012, our city council established economic development as one of our main goals,” said Englewood Mayor Randy Penn. Penn said in 2008, the city had $12 million in permits; in 2011, $22 million in permits and in 2012, $49 million in permits. “The great thing is 2013 is starting off with a little over $25 million in permits,” said Penn. Penn said he is also working to find space and funding for a “huge convention center” in the City of Englewood. Allen Dreher, treasurer of the Highlands Ranch Metro District, said with the completion of the Highlands Ranch Mansion project, the community will create an accompanying historic park located on the west side of the building. “We have no Cabela’s, no Ikea, we just have a lovely place to live,” joked Dreher.

OPINIONS / YOURS AND OURS

Olympic wrestling decision falls flat Last weekend’s state high school wrestling tournament brought together some of the most dedicated young men and women in Colorado to showcase a sport that is off the mainstream radar. The hundreds of teenagers who competed in Denver spent months, maybe years, working on moves and strategy, running, lifting weights and sweating. During the season, many monitored their weight down to the ounce. What’s more, they carved out a certain toughness they might not otherwise have known was there. For most of them, their moments on the mats at the Pepsi Center would be the ultimate stage. But some of the young grapplers, no doubt, have aspirations to extend their wrestling careers. First, college. Then, if they can beat the odds, the Olympics. But have the odds already beaten them? As you may have heard, the International Olympic Committee voted on Feb. 12 to drop wrestling from the Summer Games

OUR VIEW following 2016. The sport doesn’t grab the headlines, the TV ratings or the ticket sales of many other athletic endeavors. True, the only wrestling champion many people can name is Hulk Hogan, who performed in a professional, scripted version made for TV. But the amateur sport, real wrestling, has history on its side, dating to the first modern Olympiad in 1896. Going back even further, more than 2,000 years ago, Greeks saw fit to grapple. Wrestling ultimately took hold in many nations and continues as a true test of not only athletic aptitude but of one’s self. Last summer, Forbes.com ran an article with the headline “Why wrestlers make

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Toll-only lane is poor idea

Building a “Toll Only” lane on C-470 is just a bad idea. It creates a lot more construction, a lot more cost, as well as more driving difficulties and safety hazards. Like I-25 north of Denver or those HOV lanes in other big cities. And very few people will use it, especially once they see the cost. Just look at C-470 east — it’s practically empty, even in rush hour. This is just an attempt by the C-470 Corridor Coalition to

get around putting the matter to a public vote. Why don’t they just put it to the public to see if we really want to pay $350 million to build more lanes? The reality is that South Denver is just growing too big, too fast, and if we want to keep growing like this we’re going to have to pay the cost. Is that what we really want? Brian Arkell Lone Tree

Marching to the same drummer It’s just about time to be as mad as a March hare. March is thought of as a hare’s breeding season, and most hares go nuts when they’re breeding. Who doesn’t? The rest of us have March Madness too. The NCAA Division I basketball tournament is a sports fan’s favorite time of the year. Sixty-eight teams start out, and are eventually whittled down to the Sweet Sixteen, the Elite Eight, the Final Four, then just a couple, and it all happens within a few weeks in March and one in April. There are always surprises, Cinderellas, disappointments, buzzer-beaters, and who the hell is Drexel? If you’re old enough, you can still see Michael Jordan’s game-winner for North Carolina, or Christian Laettner’s gamewinner for Duke. If you’re really old enough, you know what championship team Kenny Sailors played for. We root mostly for our alma maters, but after that there are always wonderful human-interest stories, like Michigan’s Chris Webber calling a time-out when Michigan was out of time-outs. By the time I enrolled in college, my school had just won back-to-back championships. By the time I was graduated (with two degrees), we had won seven more. The players stayed around for all four years back then, even the best ones. Now they leave after one, and it used to break my heart. Now it’s just the way it is. One afternoon, I thought I would try out for manager, and wound up in a locker room with one of the most famous coaches in basketball history, and what seemed like 10 All-Americans. I never went back. It was too intimidating I don’t watch professional basketball. It’s not basketball. It’s a version of rugby, and consists primarily of spectacular dunks and tattoos. Not only that, basketball is a fall and winter sport. But the pros will still be at it two and a half months after Major League Baseball opens its season. That’s not right. Once March Madness gets going, you’ll be able to sample games in airports, sports bars and pharmacies. One of my favorite tournament memories was watching the start of a Gonzaga game — before they became a powerhouse — in one airport, and then seeing the end of the upset in my destination airport.

While I was flying high, so were the Zags. Every year some school no one has ever heard of, including their own alumni, beats a team everyone has heard of. Last year it was Lehigh, a 15-seed, beating Duke, a 2-seed. Oh, I’ve heard of Lehigh. I just thought they were in Division III, and played schools like Robert Morris, Muhlenberg and Bucknell. It turns out that they do. The current darlings of college basketball are the Butler Bulldogs, who play in Hinkle Fieldhouse, which opened in 1928. The fieldhouse was used in the film “Hoosiers.” Quick, tell me where Butler is located? The Bulldogs have been upsetting so many bigger schools (enrollment is only 900 more than Cherry Creek High School), that it’s an upset now when they lose to anyone. Future U.S. Sen. Bill Bradley scored 58 points for what school in the Final Four consolation game in 1965? See how much fun this is? Where did Jerry West go to college? There’s a clue in his name. What school’s nickname is the Hoyas? What’s a Hoya? Here are some answers. Kenny Sailors played for the 1943 champion Wyoming Cowboys. Sailors popularized the jump shot. Butler is located in Indianapolis. Bill Bradley played for Princeton. Jerry West was a West Virginia Mountaineer. Georgetown’s nickname is the Hoyas. And what’s a Hoya? No one knows. Before the first tournament game this year, millions of basketball fans will try to puzzle out the brackets, including President Obama. By the time the tournament is ended, some unknown will have had its Fifteen Minutes. Craig Marshall Smith is an artist, educator and Highlands Ranch resident.

the best employees.” The story began with a quote from Olympic gold medalist Dan Gable. “More enduringly than any other sport, wrestling teaches self-control and pride. Some have wrestled without great skill — none have wrestled without pride.” Who wouldn’t like to see more people in the workplace — and in the community — with greater self-control and more pride in what they do? If the Olympics serve as a source of motivation for young athletes to continue honing these traits, why take that carrot away? There is still a fighting chance for the sport to appear in the 2020 games. In May, the Olympic committee will consider adding one more sport. Already, efforts are under way in the wrestling community to make sure their sport is the one. There’s even talk of the United States and Iran working together for the cause, a true display of how sports

can unite. We won’t use this space to trash other sports, ones that could be kept out so that wrestling might stay. All sports, in their own way, teach pride and self-control when done right. But consider this: LeBron James has the NBA Finals. Regardless of what wellintentioned players might say, high-profile professional sports reach their pinnacle within the confines of their league’s playoff tournament. Or in a global, sport-specific championship, such as soccer’s World Cup. Amateur wrestling has major events that unite the world’s finest besides the Olympics. Did you know that? No? That’s the point. Wrestling needs the Olympics’ stage. And the Olympics need wrestling to help it remain something the world takes genuine pride in, not just watches like so much reality TV.

Do you remember the time? Do you remember the time, the first time that you fell in love? Do you remember the time when you first met that special someone? Well, I wish I could lay claim to those words, but they actually come from a Michael Jackson song titled “Remember the Time.” I was coaching one of my sales clients recently and all he could say was that he remembered a time when he was really successful, making sales, making money, and had lots of close clients and friends. Then as we talked more and we started to dig a little deeper we found that he had stopped doing the very things that had earned him those clients and close friends, earned him that money, and helped him make those sales. You see, he started to take for granted the hard work and effort he put into his career and the attention he placed on his prospects and clients. All of a sudden he was living in a comfort zone, not paying attention to detail, not doing the little things, and not going the extra mile to win the business. So what happened? He found himself moving from the top of the leaderboard in his company to almost the bottom. They were getting ready to let him go. Funny thing is that I had another client that I was coaching. He also remembered a time when he was really successful, had a great marriage, was having lots of fun, and thought he had found bliss. Then as we talked more and we started to dig in a little deeper we found that he too had stopped doing the very things that had first connected him and his wife, he stopped courting her, he stopped paying attention to what was important to her, and he found

himself staring down at the potential for divorce. You see, he too took for granted the hard work and effort, the romance that he had placed on his relationship to win her hand in marriage. All of a sudden he too was living in the comfort zone, not paying attention to detail, not doing the little things, not sharing his heart or feelings. And the same thing that happened to our sales champion happened to him. He went from being the star in his bride’s eyes to being at the bottom. She was ready to let him go. Do you remember the time? Do you honestly remember the time? The time you fell in love and what made you fall in love, the time you first placed eyes on your spouse, the time you first held hands, or the time you first kissed.

Mental health is link in gun tragedies

In wake of recent tragedies, legislatures all across America have been debating how best to keep our society safe. There is no doubt this topic deserves great attention and we must er take a realistic, informed approach in hat order to move forward with effective legislation. On April 20, 1999, two mentally disturbed individuals at Columbine High School killed 13 innocent peolple. This tragedy was heard around ofile the world, and those lost souls are e still mourned today. Just like in wake ayoff of the recent tragedies, our society was left with one question, “What ioncould have been done to prevent this from happening?” Columbine happened approximately five years e after the Federal Assault Weapons Ban t’s (AWB) was enacted, which was largely considered one of the most extreme e. gun-control measures in our recent lp it history. The Federal Assault Weapons uine Ban also dictated magazine capacities. Unfortunately, this measure taken by the federal government did not prevent this tragedy from occurring. I agree with Gov. John Hickenlooper on this issue when he said that there would not be a single gun law that could have prevented the Aurora massacre. This same view is not held by many of his Democratic Party members in the House, despite an overwhelming amount of statistics and precedence ascertaining that more gun control is not the solution. On Feb. 12, House Bill 13-1224, sponsored by Rep. Rhonda Fields, D-Aurora, would ban magazines that hold more than 15 rounds. Magpul, a designer and manufacturer of polymer firearms accessories, was one of the hundreds that signed up to testify against this bill. This concept firearms company, based in Erie, has indicated that if House

Bill 13-1224 is passed, they will move their operation out of Colorado. This will result in the loss of approximately 700 jobs and $85 million in Colorado’s economy. House Bill 13-1229, sponsored by state Reps. Fields and Beth McCann, D-Denver, would prohibit and criminalize the private transfer of firearms without a background check. This would potentially make it illegal for an uncle to pass down a firearm to a nephew without going to a commercial location that sells guns and paying them to perform a background check. Both of these bills passed the Judiciary Committee on Feb. 12, 2013, on a party-line vote, seven Democrats defeating four Republicans. HB 13-1226, sponsored by state Rep. Claire Levy, D-Boulder, would repeal the current right to carry a concealed firearm for self-defense on a college or university campus; this bill was heard in the Education Committee on Feb. 13. HB13-1228, sponsored by state Rep. Lois Court, D-Denver, would require law-abiding citizens to pay a fee for a background check when purchasing a firearm. HB 13-1228 was heard in the Finance Committee on Feb. 13. Both HB 13-1226 and HB 13-1228 passed their committees on party-line votes, Democrats defeating Republicans. Feb. 15 turned out to be quite a day at the Capitol. We debated these gun-control bills for approximately

fourteen hours and did not leave the floor until 11 p.m. The Republican Caucus unanimously opposed all four of these bills, but we were unsuccessful in our effort to stop the legislation. All but a few Democratic representatives voted in favor of these particular gun control measures. Rep. Ed Vigil, D-Pueblo, was the only Democratic representative to stand in opposition to all four of the gun-control bills. The vote counts on the third reading for these four bills were as follows: HB 13-1224 passed 34-31; HB 13-1229 passed 36-29; HB 13-1228 passed 33-32; HB 13-1226 passed 34-31. All of these bills are now on their way to the Senate. There are a multitude of great resources from unbiased agencies that can assist you in learning more about the gun-control issue. I urge you to learn more and evaluate what you believe to be the root cause of these tragedies. I think our work will provide greater returns to the people of Colorado if we look at the common denominator between the recent tragedies in Newton and Aurora: mental health. We need to focus more resources and energy into improving the mental health system in Colorado so we can give people the help they need and prevent future tragedies from being committed. Furthermore, we should be working toward providing a pro-business environment, and evaluating, is the problem the high-capacity magazine or the person behind it; before we pass a bill that drives a successful business out of the State of Colorado. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions on these issues.

and the first segment of the Northwest Rail Line to south Westminster are 35 percent complete. Also, the I-225 Rail Line through Aurora and the express lanes as part of the U.S. 36 Bus Rapid Transit Project are also under construction. However, despite all the progress, RTD has its challenges in building out the whole FasTracks program, largely due to increased costs and lower-thanexpected revenues due to the recession. One of the projects that is on hold until RTD has funds to build it is the Southwest Rail Extension from Mineral to C-470/Lucent Boulevard in Highlands Ranch. The station there will also include a 1,000-space Parkn-Ride. RTD has invested $25 million in this project, including acquiring the property at Lucent Station, purchasing light-rail vehicles, and planning and engineering for the sta-

tion. While staff continues working on design efforts, the crucial issue is finding a way to fund the build-out of the extension sooner rather than later. The key is working together to make it happen. In early February, I hosted a meeting with elected officials and staff from Arapahoe and Douglas counties, the cities of Centennial, Englewood, Greenwood Village and Littleton, Denver South Economic Development Partnership, Highlands Ranch Chamber of Commerce, Highlands Ranch Community Association, Highlands Ranch Metro District and the South Metro Denver Chamber of Commerce. RTD General Manager Phil Washington, RTD staff and I discussed the current status of FasTracks and the Southwest Extension. Our plan moving forward includes establishing a task force with our partners to discuss alternative financing strategies to get this extension built as soon as possible. Additionally, the FasTracks Citizens Advisory Committee is holding its

Get on a train and the popularity is obvious. Ridership far exceeds initial projections, with much more rail to come. RTD’s FasTracks transit expansion program will build 122 miles of new commuter rail and light rail, 18 miles of bus rapid transit service, add 21,000 new parking spaces, redevelop Denver Union Station and redirect bus service to better connect the eightcounty district. Right now, RTD has 81 miles of rail and bus transit in construction or soon to begin construction and has invested $4.7 billion across the region.

His life began 61 years ago in Dallas, Texas. His Canadian mother, Mary Elizabeth Shaver Eaman (Molly) and New Yorker father, Howard Macdonald Sharp, moved to Texas in search of a job. Day two in Dallas landed his father a job at Tempco. Day three landed his mother with their first born son. They lived in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area for the next 9 years, joined by two brothers and a sister. In 1960 the family moved to Littleton, Colorado where Don attended school graduating from Arapahoe High School in 1969, followed with two years at Arapahoe Community College where he studied Art and Biology. An Eagle Scout, who attained God and Country status and Order of the Arrow, Don always enjoyed being outside, hunting rattlesnakes as a teenager and when older searching for mushrooms or spelunking in caves around the country and Mexico. Don enjoyed scuba diving when he was younger, was an expert skier, and often owned horses, pigs, chickens or ducks. He was most passionate though, about flying the Cessna Cardinal he co-owned with his brother. Don’s demeanor was generally that of a happy camper and a loyal, courteous and cheerful boy scout. Don spent most of his working life in the families metal stamping and spin-

ning factory, where he was an accomplished metal spinner. In the last 10 years, Don’s primary focus was on building his home outside of Walsenburg, where views of the Spanish Peaks, and horses in the pasture hinted at the peace he had always hoped for. Construction on the house lingers to this day due to the insidious servitude alcoholism demands. The shadows of his dream were outlined by the slowly evolving house against the crumbling tack rooms and paddock. The happy camper, having nearly died at least 5 times since the age of 14, has closed his eyes in peace since the battle is finally over. Don Sharp’s lifelong battle with alcoholism, ended when he suffered a fatal heart attack while attempting to get his pickup truck out of the ditch after a recent snow storm. Rest in Peace brother. Don was preceded in death by his mother in 2010 and his father in 2011. He leaves behind his two beloved dogs, Stitch and Bolo, who stood by his side from the moment of death until 3 or 4 days later when his body was discovered by a farmer on his way to feed the cows. His brother Ken lives in Pueblo, sister Janet Pritchett lives in Denver and Ridgway, and youngest brother Walter lives in Littleton.

Roxborough’s Zach Miller shreddin’ life Cerebral palsy doesn’t hold back young champ By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@ourcoloradonews.com For a boy who’s dealt with physical challenges all of his 13 years, one would think hearing he was too normal would be the best news ever. Not so for Zach Miller, a champion on two fronts: as the 2013 Children’s Miracle Network Hospital Champion and on a snowboard. As a baby, Zach was diagnosed with a form of cerebral palsy. “It was hard to hear such an overwhelming, life-changing diagnosis,” said Zach’s mom, TR. He had trouble holding his head up, and she had to coax every bit of food into him. But Children’s Hospital doctors jumped right in with therapies and resources that made a difference right away. At age 6, Zach, who lives in Roxborough with his family, got to try skiing and soon was an avid participant in the hospital’s sports program. That was all well and good — until he discovered snowboarding. His eyes catch fire as he talks about the turns, the jumps, the rollers, the step-ups, the berms,

the tabletops, the slalom and, of course, the wu-tangs. “When I get on the snow and strap in, it’s like I’m a different person,” he said. Whoever that different person is, he’s a winner just like Zach. Zach won the 2012 Wells Fargo Ski Cup National Adaptive Race in Winter Park, and a 2014 Paralympics qualifying race in Lake Tahoe. Unfortunately, Zach was ruled too high-functioning to compete in Russia. “When I got turned down, that changed my life,” said Zach. “If you’re normal, you can’t be amazing.

You’d never know, he said, until the pain and the tiredness hits and all of a sudden he can’t get up the stairs or off the couch. “But I’m really fortunate to have a brother and father who are there to pick me up, and a family to support me,” he said. “And also the hospital — it’s an accepting environment, and you don’t have to be worried about being made fun of. They support you and they won’t let me say `I can’t.’” Zach’s already well on his way to being grown up, but he’d like to go pro somewhere along the way. “That’s a pretty big goal,” he

The Independent 9

Is there a bond or a stock bubble? The financial markets seem to be improving after a very rough decade. Now that the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) has doubled since the low point in 2007, investors are feeling it is OK to put money in the market. If you did not panic in 2007 and stayed the course, you are in much better shape than someone who flew to safety and abandoned their growth counterparts. More money flowed into bonds as a flight to quality in 2012 than 2008 and 2004 combined. So while the equities markets were busy doubling, most investors were buying bonds. Knowing when and where to invest is always a quandary. There is always a justification to do nothing, or “wait it out.” There will always be uncertainty, which is why you can’t use the economy or the financial markets as a guideline for investing. You should create your own strategy based on the length of time you have before you need the funds, how much volatility is tolerable and how much diversification is needed. Don’t think of one asset class as better than another, or that you should only be in

one at a time. The real trick to managing risk is to determine how much and what type of fixed income or equities you should hold and for how long. Diversification at a minimum should include both fixed-income assets (bonds) and growth assets (equities). Good advisers will drill each of those categories down into specific asset classes, including on the bond side, short, long, government, corporate and foreign. Those can be dissected again into high yield, municipal, emerging or developed markets. On the equity side there are even more

choices, including value, growth, large, mid, small, domestic, developed foreign, emerging markets and alternatives. This last category can be broken down into a myriad of options including real estate and commodities. Therefore, the over-simplification of bonds versus equities is truly a macro view for this exercise. Here are some signs of a bond bubble: • The Federal Reserve purchased 75 percent of U.S. government debt in 2012. Eventually the Fed will need to back off the easing and the bond supply will escalate, hence pushing prices down. • Interest rates are at 200-year lows and bond prices are at all-time highs. In order for a bond to have a gain, interest rates would need to drop lower. Since the Fed cannot go lower than zero percent, their bong buying has created the essence of a negative interest rate. When the Fed stops buying bonds, yields would likely increase, further driving down the value of the bond. Equities have always appeared to be more volatile and hence are perceived as riskier. While that is true in the short term, the opposite may be true for the long term.

If your time horizon is at least one business cycle away (seven to 10 years). Then your loss of purchasing power is your biggest risk, not the near-term fluctuations in the equities market. Investors should be aware of the herd mentality that often leads significant shifts in where investors go. The majority of new dollars in 2012 were buying bonds at high prices when a better strategy would be to take profits and re-allocate to other categories.

Art from the heart

“Sara” by Robert Lace won Best of Show for Black and White in the “Eye of the Camera” exhibit.

“San Acacio” by Charles Lehman won Best of Show for Darkroom Processing and Printing. There were 12 entries in the category in the Littleton Museum show. “the best photographer starts right here,” pointing to himself as an individual — meaning it wasn’t the equipment that made the difference. He praised the quality of entries generally, admitting to “some disappointment on presentation in a few.” Mike Berenson’s “Wonders of the Night,” Best of Show in Color, is an image of an old log cabin in a night sky of swirling lights. Magic is afoot! “Sara,” by Robert Lace is Best of Show in Black and White. It’s a large portrait of a blond woman (with dark roots) staring at the camera, with one eye covered by her hair. The viewer is certain she has a story to tell. A new category this year is Darkroom Printing and Processing (versus digital) and the Best of Show went to “San Acacio,” a softly lit picture of an old adobe church and surrounding adobe fence, by Charles Lehman. It appears to be well-maintained and speaks of hundreds of years of service to parishioners. (There were 12 entries in this category.)

Charles Lehman’s “Crown Dancer” won First Place in Color. A single White Mountain Apache Crown Dancer in ceremonial attire represents the spiritual ancestors of the Apache people. With painted body and shrouded head, he looks solemn and otherworldly. One can almost hear drumming in the background and wants to know what story the image reflects. Crisp details stand out in David Anderson’s “Junkyard,” First Place Black and White. An ancient truck is backed by old window frames and miscellaneous junk. Where have they been? Second place awards went to “Trapped in Ice” by Oswald Pfenninger (color) and “Radial Ascent” by Gary Witt (Black and White). Best of Show winners will receive $500 each; First Place, $300 and Second Place, $150. Littleton’s council-appointed Fine Arts Board sponsors this popular annual exhibition, open to all Colorado photographers. The three Best of Show winners will have a joint show in 2014.

Parker: 5280 looking for food critic Parker continues from Page 10

CEO of Goodwill Industries of Denver, Jesse Wolff has announced he is resigning. During his tenure, Wolff has made a significant impact growing the venerable nonprofit’s mission, building the brand, investing in its employees and facilities and transforming the culture of the organization. Since Wolff was hired in 2010, Goodwill’s revenues have nearly doubled and community donations have increased significantly. Also under Wolff’s leadership, Goodwill has created nearly 500 new jobs in Denver and northern Colorado, and the company is now among the 60 largest private employers in the state with nearly 1,400 employees. Also over the last three years, Goodwill has opened 15 new retail stores, Outlet Worlds and donation centers — contributing millions in economic impact to the state. “This was not an easy decision to make,” Wolff said. “In my time at Goodwill, thanks to the hard work of so many talented, hard-working employees across the company we’ve accomplished so much — we’ve increased revenues by more than 40 percent, we’ve increased the reach

of our mission programs tremendously and we added 500 new jobs, just to name a few. The transformation of Goodwill that I envisioned has become a reality and I feel like I’m leaving Goodwill in a really good place. “The decision of who will replace me will ultimately be made by Goodwill’s Board of Directors led by Carrie Mesch. I feel we have one of the strongest boards a nonprofit could ask for, so I am confident they will find someone who will continue to lead Goodwill on its path of increased mission impact, retail growth and employee investment.” Upon Wolff’s departure, for which a date has not yet been set, David Brunick, Goodwill’s vice president of human resources, will act as interim CEO.

A watercolor, “Contemplative Morning in Salcomb, England” by S. Williams, won first place in the Depot’s Anniversary show. Courtesy photo Williams for her “Contemplative Morning in Salcomb, England,” a large watercolor depicting a quiet woman seated in a formal room — apparently thinking. A warm palette

includes peach, probably velvet chairs and dark walnut wood. Her dress is in neutral tones, so she doesn’t stand out from the rest of the patterns. Second place was award-

ed to Fred Bikle for his watercolor, “Alley Rental” and third place to Joyce Murphy for “Tranquility.” An Honorable Mention ribbon went to photographer Peggy Dietz for “After the Lunch Crowd,” which shows a waitress cleaning up in a mellow-looking restaurant with exposed brick wall. Another was given to Brian Serf for his watercolor, “Gates of Lodore, Green River.” The Depot Art Gallery is located in a 19th-century Santa Fe Railroad depot, which was restored by Littleton Fine Arts Guild members with Bicentennial funds and other grants. They operate it, although it belongs to the City of Littleton. Hours are 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Wednesdays through Sundays. 303-795-0781.

What is the most challenging part of what you do? I keep up with Tenant demand for rental properties and sometimes having to break a wonderful family’s heart because the owner has selected another applicant. I love matching up wonderful people with beautiful homes and I wish I had one for every tenant that is searching. My passion is to help people and I hate when I can’t.

What is one tip you have for leasee (tenant)? If you are looking to rent your next home, I recommend that you do research. Many rental properties can be found online, but I suggest you drive around a neighborhood that you like – especially around the first week of the month. You may find properties that some owners and agents don’t market online – they simply post a “For Lease” sign. Always check the public records or get some type of proof that whomever is leasing you the property is actually the owner or representing the owner on the deed. Finally if the property seems too good to be true online it probably is! Be careful of scams and try to work with reputable landlords and companies.

PROPERTY TAX BA$I¢S P

aying property taxes is a necessary side effect of home ownership. Across the United States, residents are required to pay property taxes based on an assessment of their homes’ value. Taxes on land and the buildings on it are one of the biggest sources of revenue for local governments. Property taxes are not imposed by the states, but by the smaller governing bodies in cities, towns, townships, counties, and other jurisdictions. Although the taxes are mandated by a higher governing power, the rate at which you pay taxes could be based on a very local assessment of the area in which your house is located and the current market conditions. An assessor will visit a home • usually prior to purchase • and make a determination on the percentage of tax to be paid depending on the condition of the home, the

improvements that have been made and the climate of the economy in your particular town or city. Property taxes are usually calculated by taking the assessed value of your home and multiplying it by the tax rate that has been determined by your local government. While no one can “legally” escape paying property taxes, there are several ways to have them lowered. Getting your home re-assessed is one such way. Individuals who have reached a certain age may be eligible for certain discounts on property taxes. But this may require a very low income to qualify. There are also some tax credits or homestead exemptions that may qualify you for a limited assessed value on the property. For those of you who think you pay a “Lion’s Share” in taxes, take this into account. According to data from the Tax Foundation and Forbes,

areas of New Jersey, New York and Illinois boast some of the highest property taxes. Residents of Hunterdon County, New Jersey paid on average $8,600 a year between 2005 and 2009. Those in Lake County, Illinois pay around $6,500. People living in Westchester County, New York can plan on spending $8,400 per year. And to our friends to the north, statistics indicate that homes located in Ontario cities in central Canada have the highest property taxes. Toronto residents, for example, pay an average of $3,900. In this tough economy, lowering property taxes (which are generally rolled into the mortgage amount for ease of payment) could substantially reduce bills. As many as 60 percent of properties across the United States are overassessed, according to the National Taxpayers Union, a nonprofit group that promotes lower taxes. ■

A change in the status of a neighborhood can also give rise to higher property taxes. An influx of new residents or new construction of stores and homes can have a major effect on the assessed value of your home.

If you suspect your property taxes are high, here are the steps to take. • Get a copy of your property tax assessment from the local assessor’s office and double-check all the information contained to see if it is correct. • Check the assessments of five comparable homes that have sold in your neighborhood in the last three years. • An independent appraiser can also provide you accurate information at a cost. Make sure he or she is licensed with the National Association of Independent Fee Appraisers or by the American Society of Appraisers. • It’s not possible to lower the property tax rate, just the assessed value of the home through an official appeal. There may be fees associated with this appeal, however.

Some home improvements will increase the value of your home and, in turn, your property taxes. Here are some of the most common culprits: • extra stories to the home • outhouses, like a guest house • sports courts, like tennis • installation of an inground pool • improvements to fencing • addition of a garage or another room on the home

Buzzer-beater not enough as Warriors fall in OT Cherokee Trail wraps up league crown with win at Arapahoe By Craig Harper

sports@ourcoloradonews.com Closing the regular season with four straight wins - the last two over ranked Centennial League opponents - would have provided the Arapahoe boys with a desirable momentum boost for the 5A playoffs. Thanks to Thomas Trotman’s improbable 3-point buzzerbeater at the end of regulation, the Warriors had a chance to do just that in overtime Friday night against fifth-ranked Cherokee Trail, which had lost star player Roderick Bernstine to a knee injury. But Arapahoe couldn’t overcome a tough start to the extra session and the visiting Cougars, saved by 20-of-26 free throw shooting over the final 11 minutes, hung on for a 63-61 victory. Its ninth straight win clinched the Centennial League title for Cherokee Trail (16-7, 12-2). Arapahoe (16-7, 8-6), which won the previous three titles, finished fourth thanks to No. 9 Grandview’s 59-56 victory over Cherry Creek. The Bruins (7-7 league) beat the Warriors twice and would have held the tiebreaker. Arapahoe coach Dan Snyder, whose last two teams won 25 games and reached the Final Four, had mixed feelings about the week. “We played really well on Wednesday night (75-64 win over Grandview),’’ he said. “But we didn’t execute down the stretch tonight and you can’t do that against a team that’s really good. They won the league and they deserve to win the league.’’ “We fought all the way to the end in this game and the last three games we played very well,’’ Trotman said. “Our effort has been there. Our execution has kind of killed us.’’ Trotman hit what Snyder called a “fluky’’ 3-pointer from about 10 feet over the halfcourt line as time expired after the Cougars had gone ahead 51-48 on two free throws by Solomon Yon with 8.6 seconds left. But the Warriors couldn’t build on that emotional high in the three-minute overtime. Cherokee Trail scored four second-chance points in the first 32 seconds following a missed shot inside by

Arapahoe’s Matt Glasscock (15 points) and a Warrior turnover. Arapahoe got to within two points three times before Trotman (12 of his 14 points after the third quarter) hit another last-second 3-pointer for the final margin. And while Cherokee Trail was 12-of-16 at the foul line in the fourth quarter (two misses by Jay Nelson with 28.5 seconds left gave Trotman the chance to tie it), Arapahoe went 3-7 in the period and Glasscock was 1-of-2 with a chance to make it a two-point game with 16.8 seconds left in overtime. “What we said in the locker room was we just didn’t execute the little things, and making free throws would be one example,’’ Snyder said. “And then we turned it over too many times. You can’t do that and expect to win against a team that’s that good.’’ Arapahoe, which also got 16 points from Mitch Albyn, had trouble matching up with Chrerokee Trail’s athleticism but was stronger inside. “We weren’t able to keep them from getting to the basket and they were able to beat us off the dribble too many times,’’ Snyder said. “And when we helped they would get offensive rebounds. “But our guys played their hearts out, so we’re very, very happy with the effort. We just came up a little bit short to a really good team.’’ Snyder also thought Arapahoe “played much better than we did in the first game against them,’’ a 49-38 loss on Jan. 30 that “was one of our poorest performances of the year. This was certainly a much better game, and we hung in there.’’ Cherokee Trail built a 17-6 lead late in the first quarter, with the 6-7 Bernstine hitting two of his three 3-pointers. But Arapahoe finished the final nine minutes of the half with an 18-5 run, the Cougars making just three of their last 12 shots. But the Cougars opened the third quarter with a 9-2 run and never surrendered the lead thereafter. Bernstine’s injury to his right knee put a damper on Cherokee Trail’s victory and league title. The University of Denver signee stepped on a player’s ankle and landed awkwardly on a rebound with 4:37 left in the fourth quarter. Bernstine, who averages 19.2 points and 9.9 rebounds, scored 10 points (nine in the first half)

sixth overtime game, which Gregory said “helped us keep our composure. They know what they have to do to grind these out.’’ “Give credit to Arapahoe, they made huge shots,’’ Gregory addPar ed. “I mean, we thought we had `em beat a couple of times.

They lost early in league play to Grandview and No. 8 Eaglecrest before embarking on the current nine-game winning streak, avenging both defeats along the way. “Four of our top eight guys didn’t play until January and we played a tougher schedule this year,’’ Gregory said. “We lost some tough games and really played pretty well, considering, but just couldn’t get over the hump.’’ Friday was Cherokee Trail’s

Sports roundup: Golden Eagles grab No. 1 seed Regis, ThunderRidge also earn first-round byes By Jim Benton

jbenton@ourcoloradonews.com There’s no doubt that Mountain Vista spent all season proving they belonged among the state’s top teams. Mountain Vista coach Bob Wood hopes his team doesn’t have any doubts heading into Saturday’s first game of the Class 5A boys state basketball playoffs. The Golden Eagles lost two of their last three regular season games after reeling off 19 consecutive victories, but still earned a No. 1 seed in the postseason tournament, which began on Wednesday after press time. Mountain Vista lost 66-62 at Chaparral and 76-73 at Highlands Ranch and the Golden Eagles will play the winner of Pine Creek-Lincoln Saturday after drawing a first round bye. “I don’t know if losing a tough game helps you,” said Wood. “I’d say winning a tough game helps you. Losing a tough game just puts

doubts in your mind.” ThunderRidge, 17-6, also had a first round bye Wednesday and will face the winner of the Overland-Rampart game Saturday. The girls Class 5A state playoffs started Tuesday and Highlands Ranch, ThunderRidge, Chaparral, Rock Canyon and Arapahoe all had byes. Either Pine Creek or Cherokee Trail will play at Highlands Ranch Friday. ThunderRidge will face the winner of the Rampart-Rocky Mountain game. Chaparral entertains the Monarch-Pomona winner while the Grand Junction-Mountain Range winner will play Rock Canyon. In Class 4A, the Valor Christian (18-4) boys will play the winner of the Falcon-Green Mountain game in a second-round contest Saturday. THREE ARE OUT - All three local teams were eliminated last weekend from the state hockey playoffs. Standley Lake beat Valor Christian, 2-1, and defending state champion Regis Jesuit ousted Heritage, 6-0. Mountain Vista beat Aspen, 3-1, but lost 3-2 in four overtimes to Resurrection

Creek’s Finesilver captures elusive state crown Bruin junior knocks off Cordova for 120 pound title By Jim Benton

jbenton@ourcoloradonews.com DENVER - The long wait is over for Mitch Finesilver. The Cherry Creek junior lost in the finals at last year’s Class 5A state wrestling tournament and he wasn’t about to let that happen again. Finesilver, one brother in two sets of twins wrestling for Creek, defeated Coronado’s Adrian Cordova 3-0 to secure the 120-pound state championship last Saturday at the Pepsi Center. “In the second period, I took him down,” said Finesilver. “I got a stall call in the third and it ended up being 3-0.” Cordova was a two-time defending state champion and the two wrestlers split two matches this season. Finesilver, however, won the most important match and

collected his 44th victory in 46 matches this season. “I’ve been training for this since last year,” Finesilver said. “Last year I took second. I’ve looked past that and I’ve been training hard. It feels good to come out on top.” Mitch’s twin brother, Zach, finished fourth at 126 pounds and freshman brother Matt failed to place at 113 pounds. Regis Jesuit junior Grant Neal joined Mitch Finesilver as a state champion when he won the 195-pound title with a 3-2 win over Payton Tapia of Fossil Ridge. The win completed a 41-3 season for Neal. Valor Christian senior Chaz Polson lost in the Class 4A 170-pound finals and teammate John Hoist was third in the 152 pound division.

Parkin scores lone goal for Eagles By Jonathan Maness

ARVADA - It was a tough ending for the Valor Christian hockey team. The Eagles, who were the fourth-seed going into the Colorado High School hockey playoffs, gave all they had before falling to Standley Lake 2-1 in overtime on Friday at the APEX Center. Jeff Moffat found the back of the net two minutes into overtime to close out the season for Valor Christian - which posted its best record in school history. “Obviously, we would have liked to go further. But it was a good season,” Valor Christian’s coach Mike Pasquarella said. The Eagles came into the playoffs as one of the hottest squads. They were winners of eight of their final 10 games, and got a big 2-1 victory over rival Heritage in the season finale. They even took an early lead on Friday. Junior Ian Parkin took a pass from Ben Joseph and beat Standley Lake’s goalie Vincent Case early in the second period to give Valor Christian an early 1-0 advantage. But after that the Eagles couldn’t get past the Case and the Gators tough defense.

Though they enjoyed success last year, advancing to and winning at least one game in the 5A playoffs, Arapahoe and Grandview have been building for a crescendo in the 2012-13 girls basketball season with a core group of seniors. Neither team has disappointed. Each has been ranked No. 1 this season - Arapahoe for one week in January, Grandview returning to the top this week for the first time since the holiday break - and a member of the top five virtually since the first poll in December. And head-to-head this season has been much like the previous ones. For the third straight year the Warriors won the second game of Centennial League play to split the series, accomplishing the feat on the road for the second time in a row with last Wednesday night’s 5647 victory. By avenging a 65-48 homecourt loss on Jan. 25 that knocked it out of the unbeaten ranks, Arapahoe’s win handed the Wolves (21-2, 131) there only loss in Centennial League play this season. “We’ve always battled back and forth with Grandview, even through middle school,’’ said Arapahoe’s Karlyn Johnson. “They’ve got five

Photo by Jonathan Maness The Gators were able to even the game up late in the second period when Dalton Linkus got past Grant Verlinde to even the score. Neither team found the back of the net in the third, but in the extra period Moffat scored only his third goal of the season for the Gators. Grant Verlinde had 23 saves in the loss for the Eagles. It was the final game for the Eagles’ 10 seniors, including Wiley Myrick, who had a team-high 13 assists. As well as Cody Letsinger and Caleb Hance, who were invited to a pre-draft camp and a chance to skate in front of scouts from the St. Louis Blues and Edmonton Oilers.

The two seniors will also try out for junior hockey programs, Letsinger has tryouts with the Vernon Vipers and the Penticton Vees of the British Columbia Hockey League. Hance is scheduled to tryout with the Bismarck Bobcats of the North American Hockey League. “We are going to miss the seniors and their leadership,” Pasquarella said. Both Letsinger and Hance were part of the Eagles defense that allowed only 57 goals this season. Verlinde, who is a junior, had 341 saves this season for Valor Christian. Joseph, who led the Eagles with 20 goals and 32 points, should be back next year for his senior year.

seniors or so and we’ve got eight that we’ve played with. We knew we could take them. We knew we didn’t play our best in the last game and we had to come out here and show them what a game should look like.’’ Arapahoe coach Jerry Knafelc agreed. “We needed to win this game,’’ he said. “The league (title) is all kind of a great accolade, a nice reward for the kids. But it’s kind of out of our hands at this point, so I was more worried about this game. I cared more about winning this game against a great opponent and getting us prepared for the playoffs.’’ Wednesday’s game was a reversal of the first matchup in terms of the team’s energy. And that, the coaches said, was the main difference. “It’s very simple,’’ said Grandview coach Josh Ulitzky, whose team had won 10 straight since a six-point loss to Regis Jesuit. “I think we came out (in the first game) with the intensity that they had here.’’ Knafelc said his team’s ability to take advantage of its depth and athleticism and create faster tempo that was lacking for the Warriors on Jan. 25. It helped offset the inside play of Grandview’s 6-1 Adaeze Obinnah. The Rice University signee had 18 points and 9 rebounds, six of those on the offensive boards to go with five by Sedia Olsen.

Coffman feels the greatest threat to national security is unsustainable debt levels, and no area of the federal government should be off limits when it comes to reducing spending. Among the items on Coffman’s to-do list: Save $53 billion by using local civilian contractors instead of military personnel to perform commercial-type activities on military bases; save $20 billion by cutting U.S. forces in Europe; and save $36.7 billion by reducing the number of civilian defense positions through attrition.

“Trust Us!” Without public notices, the government wouldn’t have to say anything else.

Public notices are a community’s window into the government. From zoning regulations to local budgets, governments have used local newspapers to inform citizens of its actions as an essential part of your right to know. You know where to look, when to look and what to look for to be involved as a citizen. Local newspapers provide you with the information you need to get involved.

Notices are meant to be noticed. Read your public notices and get involved!

$150 billion — Require annual reductions by cutting programs that don’t contribute directly to military capability. $100 billion — Adopt “sea swap” policies for cruisers, destroyers, and amphibious ships by flying crews out to ships instead of changing crews at home ports. $53 billion — Use local civilian contractors instead of military personnel to perform commercial-type activities at military bases. $52.5 billion — Shift Army and Marine Corps troops to Reserves, preserving ground combat strength but returning active-duty forces to pre-9/11 levels. $52 billion — Reduce Pentagon spending on non-major equipment replacement. $36.7 billion — Cut the number of Department of Defense civilian bureaucrat positions through attrition. vention, supply, transportation, communication services and recreation support. “Or in non-military speak, garbage collectors, firefighters and civilians working at base movie theaters, gyms and such,” he said.

While these targeted proposals are not painless, Coffman said they provide a reasonable road map for avoiding the national security and fiscal disaster that would follow from not reducing the nation’s debt.

Mayor Debbie Brinkman noted confusion about the new law is standard, with governments at all levels trying to figure out how to proceed. “It’s our responsibility to protect the community from this type of poor legislation,” she said. On the same night, Columbine Valley’s town board unanimously passed a ban on all marijuana facilities and limited growing it to locked areas. There will be public hearings on second reading, March 5 in Littleton, March 19 in Columbine Valley.

Student pilots hope to weather change Expense, uncertainty drag numbers down By Deborah Grigsby

dgrigsby@ourcoloradonews.com Centennial student pilot Chase Sperry has a lifelong dream of flying corporate jets. Although the dark-haired, 24-year-old college junior has already invested thousands of dollars into pursuing an aviation degree, current industry trends for pilots have found him thinking about re-routing his career. While many local flight schools declined to share actual student numbers, a recent study conducted by the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association found that up to 80 percent of student pilots drop out of training without earning a certificate. According to AOPA, there’s been a steady drop in the number of pilots in the United States. In 1980, there were approximately 827,000 active, certified pilots, and by 2011, that number had dipped to 617,000. “It’s really discouraging out there, and it’s not getting any cheaper to do this,” said Sperry, who is pursuing a professional pilot degree from Metropolitan State University in Denver.

The 24-year-old Metro student hopes rising fuel costs and changing regulations won’t force him to choose between the cockpit and a steady paycheck. Photo by Deborah Grigsby If just the cost of going to college wasn’t enough, Sperry says tack on approximately $140 per hour for a single-engine flight instructor, plane and fuel. Some speculate rising fuel costs, liability

and even more rigid medical qualifications are clipping industry growth and fueling the graying of aviation in general. AOPA conducted a national survey of 800 pilots in 2012 and found approxi-

mately 80 percent of the responding survey population was between the ages of 40 and 74. Ninety-six percent of those surveyed were male. Although Sperry is determined to fulfill his dream, he admits he’s uncertain about how he’ll get there. “A lot of students I know in the professional pilot program have changed their majors simply because the expense and commitment are prohibitive,” he said. “I’ve even thought about double-majoring in aviation management, myself, just to have a quick backup plan.” Sperry points to new federal mandates that require all newly hired commercial pilots to have at least 1,500 hours of prior flight experience, more than six times what was required in 2012. “This is just going to make it more difficult and expensive,” he said. “It’s really just so unpredictable, I can’t even imagine what it’s gonna look like when I get there — if I get there.” Industry trade magazines predict an upcoming shortage of qualified commercial pilots as new regulations take effect and large numbers of pilots retire due to age limitations and health problems. “I can only hope I can stay with it until then,” Sperry said. “But good pilots always have a plan B.”

Combining coffee with collectibles Festive Cup offers more than just java By Ryan Boldrey

rboldrey@ourcoloradonews. com Combining coffee with collectibles, Highlands Ranch’s Festive Cup Coffee has a little something for everyone, whether they are looking for some quality caffeine, a tasty treat or that perfect gift for that special someone. Open since mid-December, the shop at 50 W. Springer Drive offers what the Starbucks of the world don’t — a true family business that goes one step beyond what one expects from a traditional coffee house. With a wide selection of Vera Bradley purses, Webkinz, Artesania Rinconada, clothing, jewelry, greeting cards, candles, figurines for all seasons, and yes, even Betty

Boop memorabilia, owners Gail Shaloy and Dawn Whitham offer the perfect mix of hard-to-find items all in one place. “We really strive to find unique items in a variety of price ranges from not too expensive to much more expensive that you are not going to be able to run into even if you are shopping in a bunch of other places,” Shaloy said. Each piece of Artesania Rinconada, for instance, is completely unique from the next. Made in Uruguay, the ceramic handcarved figurines are accented with platinum and gold, and according to Whitham, not that easy to find. The two Highlands Ranch women began their business online a few years back, dealing strictly with collectibles, and in 2010 opened The Festive Plum in Historic Downtown Littleton. Not long after opening “The Plum,” the two ladies began to envision a collectible shop that also served

as a full-service coffee bar. The Festive Plum is in the process of closing to give way to the new store. “We thought people would think it was fun if they could come in and get coffee while they were shopping for collectibles,” Whitham said. “Women would come into `The Plum’ with their husbands and they would run outside. Now they don’t feel like they are in a girly store, they can sit inside and relax while their wives are shopping.” The coffee-bar portion of the store is complete with wireless Internet, comfortable chairs, couches and tables. The coffee is local and organic, from Denver’s Coda Coffee Company, and a lot of the delicacies are also local, including the gluten-free chocolate pretzels and chocolate-dipped sandwich cookies by Creative Chocolates by Karen.
