A COLORFUL YARN

Columbine Valley board recommends less density By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@ourcoloradonews.com The chair of Columbine Valley’s planning board threatened to shut down a public hearing regarding the Willowcroft property after a brief shouting match erupted April 9. There’s a lot of opposition to a plan to build 42 patio homes targeted to seniors on what was once the grand Willowcroft Manor, which has fallen into disrepair. Urban Frontier’s original plan, approved in February, called for 29 single-story homes, all with thee-car garages. But the company recently acquired 4.5 adjacent acres, adding a dozen homes, a park and some guest parking. At one point during the meeting, several residents raised their voices, talking over each other and the board members. “It’s kind of like the developer says jump, and we all say how high,” said Brian MacAulay. “There’s not been one person generally supportive of this plan,” said Mike Sullivan. “Why do we feel compelled to succumb to the pressure?” Homes continues on Page 7

Sign language speaks of community Nadelle Payne, a high school teacher of American Sign Language, can go all day without talking to someone other than her students. She is deaf. “I can pass people in the hall and say `Hi,’” she says through an interpreter. “But not a conversation.” So, on a recent Saturday, she and about 25 other deaf women and men, including high school and college students studying ASL, gathered at a Starbucks in Highlands Ranch to talk. The conversations — lively, graceful, expressive — continued for hours. Fingers moved swiftly. Arms glided, up and down, back and forth. Emotion danced across animated faces. All of it, together, words without sound spinning eloquent stories, woven in a warmth born of shared community. “To immerse ourselves in our own language” is a gift, a reprieve from the isolation that comes with being deaf, Payne says. “Hearing people can talk every day, on the phone … all the time. We talk when we have someone to sign with.” The monthly Starbucks gathering is one of many in the area designed to nurture connection and fellowship among a populace defined by its unique communication and culture. There are deaf social chats at restaurants in Boulder and Castle Rock, silent bowling nights at an alley in Lone Tree, festivals and ASL performances at Rocky Mountain School for the Deaf in Lakewood, an ASL haunted house night during Halloween, a deaf social chat in Superior, a meeting for deaf senior citizens in Denver. “It is like you are going to deaf Mecca where there are all deaf native signers,” says Michelle Stricklen, an ASL instructor at Front Range Community College who is deaf. “It is,” she says in an email, “phenomenal to me.”

Pam Meadows, a Castle Rock resident and California transplant who has been deaf since birth, started the monthly socials at the Highlands Ranch Starbucks about 2½ years ago. “We come here to socialize,” she says through her friend Dawn Davies, a Littleton schools counselor who is not deaf and is interpreting. “But it also helps ASL students so they can experience what deaf people are like.” Davies, who began learning to sign in first grade, attends many of these events to visit with friends. But as a school counselor she also helps introduce first-timers, particularly students, to the group. “I like to help bridge the gap a little bit.” A handful of high school students from Castle Rock and Highlands Ranch are here this day. It is their second visit. They come to practice signing, but they’ve picked up on some other aspects of deaf culture, too. “They’re really close,” Shawna Doughten says. “You can talk across the room,” Makayla Elms says with a smile. “They’re not different,” Paige Luke says. “Other people think they’re handicapped, but they’re not.” The three teens, along with Kayla Hendrickson from Castle Rock, have fallen in love with the language. “It’s just so expressive,” Hendrickson says. “I love how it’s really metaphoric … how you can kind of get creative with it.” “When you’re describing stuff, you’re

supposed to try to create a picture,” Elms says. “You use a lot of motion,” Luke says. The language is actually more straightforward, points out Jazelle Edwards, 9, here with her mother, who is deaf. She is not, though. “You don’t have to say the little words,” such as “and” and “the.” “Sign language is so much fun to talk,” says Clay Amos, who with his fiancee Ivy Oswald recently moved from Pennsylvania. They’ve come to meet new people. Although both are deaf, Amos can lip read and speak; Oswald has a cochlear implant, which allows her to hear, and she can speak. “It’s feelings,” Amos says about signing. “It makes you laugh.” “It is,” Oswald says with a smile, “theatrical.” And just like a spoken language, it has tones and accents, the students say. “People have tones with their voice,” Hendrickson says. “You kind of have a tone of your sign. Everyone signs differently.” George Veditz, former president of the National Association of the Deaf, said this about sign language in 1913: “It is my hope that we will all love and guard our beautiful sign language as the noblest gift God has given to deaf people.” And it is beautiful. To watch people sign is to watch stories unfold like the lyrical melody of a song. You can sense the happiness, the sadness, the excitement, the disappointment — even when you don’t know what the signs mean. But that inability to understand often creates discomfort among those who can’t communicate back, similar to being in a country whose language is not your own. “Many people are intimidated by us,” Payne acknowledges. “It takes a lot of effort for hearing people to communicate” with those who can’t hear. Stricklen tells the story of asking a flight attendant for a menu and being given one

in Braille. “I told her, `No, I just need regular.’ Am I blind?” At the other end of the spectrum, Payne says, “we are afraid we will be misunderstood.” The key, as with anyone who doesn’t know your language, is to try. “We like having friends,” Payne says. “We like it when people make an effort to try and communicate.” On this day, around the tables in the coffee shop, the barriers are down. Two women stand by the door, lost in conversation, eyes focused on each other’s signs. Next to them, Makayla Elms and Paige Luke are signing with little Jazelle and her older brother. Nearby, Payne, Davies and Meadows are in deep conversation with a group clustered in chairs. And at the tall table across the way is Oswald, hands moving, fingers working, animated as she and Amos sign with new friends. A peacefulness of sorts quietly connects them all. They are, in a sense, home. Watch, and listen carefully. The silence speaks loudly.

jsmith@ourcoloradonews.com CenturyLink announced April 10 that its $323 million effort over the last five years has boosted its Internet speeds in Colorado, reaching up to 40 megabits per second. The company focused efforts on expanding broadband availability and increasing bandwidth. “CenturyLink makes it a daily priority to continue to upgrade our entire footprint in Colorado,” said CJ Powell, public-relations manager. CenturyLink, formerly CenturyTel, absorbed Qwest Communications in April 2011. It’s central-region headquarters are in Littleton, just west of Mineral Avenue and Broadway. That location employs 2,300 people. “We’re pleased that CenturyLink continues to invest in our local area,” Kelly J. Brough, president and CEO of the Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce, said in a press release. He added that robust and reliable broadband service is critical to the business community and helps give Colorado an edge. The state agrees. It used a $5.3 million federal grant to establish the Colorado Broadband Data and Development Program, a statewide broadband mapping and planning initiative. According to the website, its mission is to “promote an environment that enables a cost-effective, sustainable, high-speed, scalable broadband network and encourages the adoption and use of broadband services for improved health, safety, education and economic development.” Internet users can visit the site to test their own speed, then submit the results.

In downtown Littleton, CenturyLink checked in at 10 to 25, as did Verizon and T-Mobile. Comcast came in at 50 to 100, and AT&T at 3 to 6. Powell said speeds vary from neighborhood to neighborhood, and while the company is continuing its upgrade efforts, it hasn’t reached every neighborhood yet. “We understand how important it is for our customers to have fast, affordable access to the Internet, so CenturyLink has made enhancement and expansion of our HSI service a priority,” Scott Russell, CenturyLink vice president and general manager in Denver and Northern Colorado, said in the release.

The South Metro Denver Chamber of Commerce will honor local business leaders and entrepreneurs at its 28th Annual Small Business Leadership Awards event, set for May 1. This year saw 125 nominees, a record year, according to chamber President and CEO John Brackney, who said that number was whittled down to 36, and then down to nine finalists. “There’s childbirth, there’s marriage, there’s graduation,” mused Brackney. “And all of these are important things, but so is small business because you put yourself out there and you deal with the complexity of starting and succeeding in business. This is an opportunity to celebrate that, too.” The annual sold-out event returns to the Comedy Works-South at 5345 S. Landmark Place in Greenwood Village, and will feature Animal Planet veterinarian and stand-up comedian Dr. Kevin Fitzgerald as emcee. Finalists for the Small Business of the Year category include Footers Catering, Greystone Technology Group Inc. and Strategic Programs Inc. This category recognizes the accomplishments of a company with five to 250 employees and in business five or more years. Those vying for Emerging Business of the Year — a company with five or more employees and in business one to four years — are Abby Senior Care Inc., Cascade

p Bill would OK licenses for illegal immigrants Sponsor predicts reduction in uninsured motorists By Vic Vela

vvela@ourcoloradonews.com

Colorado residents who are in the country illegally may soon be able to obtain driver’s licenses, after a bill proposing such a measure passed a state legislative committee on April 10. State Senate Bill 251 would allow immigrants to apply for state-issued IDs that are only meant to be used for driving purposes. Democratic Sen. Jessie Ulibarri of Commerce City, the bill’s sponsor, said during an April 10 Senate Judiciary Committee hearing that the measure would result in a ntifyreduction of unlicensed and uninsured mohosetorists in Colorado. helps Ulibarri said immigrants are driving assesanyway, and that it’s in everyone’s benefit e ac-that they are doing so lawfully and are car-

rying proper insurance. “At some point we must recognize that our (immigrant) neighbors are here,” Ulibarri said. “We see them every day in the grocery store. We see Report them in our local communities, at church or passing by at school. To have a system that ignores their presence means we have a policy that really discourages honesty, and it’s at the expense of public safety.” The bill would require immigrants to show certain types of legal documentation whenever they seek a driver’s license, such as an ID from their country of origin and proof that they have filed state income taxes. That’s in addition to standard driving tests. Those who obtain these “separate cat-

Capitol

egory” types of licenses would not be able to use them to board airplanes or to register to vote. Ulibarri cited statistics from neighboring states that have similar laws, including Utah and New Mexico, where he said the numbers of uninsured drivers have dropped significantly over the years. Denver Police Sgt. Michael Farr testified that the bill would help law enforcement agencies’ relationships with the immigrant community in investigating crimes, and would result in fewer drivers leaving the scenes of accidents. Other witnesses provided personal narratives about the challenges associated with not being able to obtain driver’s licenses. Esmeralda Dominguez of Denver testified that she is a U.S. citizen, but that her husband is not. She said they have a son who must attend several medical appointments a week, and that she is the only one

who can take him because her husband cannot legally drive. “This issue has nothing to do with ... immigration issues,” she said. “(My husband) qualifies for (legal status), but that’s taking a long time. This is affecting my family. It is an everyday issue we’re dealing with.” No one testified in opposition to the bill, which passed the Democratic-controlled committee on a 3-2 party-line vote. Republican Sen. Kevin Lundberg of Berthoud, a committee member, told Ulibarri he had “several concerns with this bill on several levels.” He said he doesn’t think the measure would make the roads safer and that he is concerned that more people would come to Colorado illegally, for such a privilege. “This is one more step down the road toward amnesty,” Lundberg said. “It creates a magnet.” The bill now heads to the full Senate for a vote.

Plan to change oil-gas commission advances

map rvice nload turyrizon 50 toTwo

House Democrats, all Republicans oppose measure

hborcom-By Vic Vela ts, itvvela@ourcoloradonews.com . s for A Democratic-sponsored bill that would e ac-shift the Colorado Oil & Gas Conservation hasCommission toward a more environmenf ourtally friendly body passed the House on entu-April 9, with no support from Republicans. nager An amended version of House Bill 1269 id inrequires COGCC board members to disclose any financial ties they may have to the oil and gas industry. There also would

be stricter rules regarding recusal, if it is deemed that the member has a conflict of interest. The bill also changes the board’s mission. The GOGCC now has a dual role aimed at encouraging oil and gas production, while at the same time protecting the environment. But under the bill, the duality would be tilted toward public safety and the environment. “We’re responding to what the public has concerns about,” said bill sponsor Rep. Mike Foote, D-Lafayette, during an April 9 House debate. “The COGCC and the (oil and gas) industry hasn’t done enough to address those concerns.”

But Republicans argue that the bill would result in wasted minerals and would dictate to owners of mineral rights what they can and can’t do with their property. “We have in this state the strictest oil and gas rules in the nation,” said Rep. Amy Stephens, R-Monument. “This is really more about a group of people coming in and telling you what to do with your mineral rights.” Rep. Ray Scott, R-Grand Junction, warned that “there will be blowback” if this bill becomes law and that the legislation is a reaction to a “hysterical” fringe. But Democrats say the changes the bill proposes do not spell doom for the highly

profitable oil and gas industry. “I don’t think the sky is going to fall over this bill,” said Rep. Pete Lee, D-Colorado Springs. The bill passed the House by a vote of 3429, with “no” votes from Democratic Reps. Ed Vigil of Fort Garland and Cherylin Peniston of Westminster. The bill that passed April 9 was scaled down from its original version, which would have prohibited oil and gas industry representatives from serving on the board whatsoever. The bill now heads to the Senate. It’s unknown at this time whether Gov. John Hickenlooper — a pro-fracking Democrat — will sign or veto the legislation, if it gets to him.

Heritage builds legacy, one brick at a time Entryway project teaches real-world skills By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@ourcoloradonews.com According to legend, the eagle represents farsightedness and immortality. The Heritage High School Eagles are demonstrating both by launching an ambitious project that will leave a lasting legacy. In the works are major improvements to the school’s entrance, including tables, landscaping, trees, a plaza and a new walkway. Students have been involved at every step in the planning, putting skills they’ve learned in HHS classes to good use. “Someday I’ll be able to tell my kids that’s what I did to contribute to my community, that’s how I spent my time at Heritage,” said senior Zachary Hecker. He’s been busy engineering the design, illustrating a more inviting place for students to gather. Hecker has studied architecture at Heritage for the last three years, and now his ideas will forever change the face of the school. His design is meant to evoke images of the Colorado tundra, home of the golden eagle, and in-

second highest gets a two-year term. The district terms are four years. Meanwhile, both the city and the school board are offering workshops for potential candidates to learn about the ins and outs of running.

Crocker St. Current board members, staff and someone from the Colorado Association of

corporates a bronze statue of an eagle that the senior class is donating. His teacher, Jason Whitehorn, said Hecker’s talent and professionalism served him well while dealing with contractors and others involved in the planning. “It really does mimic a real-life project,” said Whitehorn. “Just because we can draw it doesn’t mean they can build it.” To make the project come to life, the Parent-Teacher Organization created the Heritage Legacy Project. Alumni, businesses and the community at large are encouraged to buy a brick, engraved with their name, to help pave the more welcoming facade and forever be a part of the school. “What we’re trying to do is have our past, present and future alumni become one,” said PTO president Julie TenEyck, who’s heading up the project. Coincidentally, after the project was underway, some environmentalscience students decided they wanted to enhance the landscaping in front of the school as their senior project. “This started out a PTO-sponsored project, but the kids wanted to help,” said TenEyck. “They have a lot of pride in their school, and they wanted to show it.”

Rachel Gershon, Rachel Reisler and twins Alexa and Karly Garster researched xeriscaping and drought-resistant flowers, working with O’Toole’s Garden Center to choose just the right ones. Included are colorful butterfly bushes, tulips and dragon’s blood, perennials that won’t have to be purchased anew each year. “It saves them a bunch of money, and it helps with the water bills,” said Gershon, who noted that in their research, they discovered HHS spent $10,000 on water last June alone. The seniors will continue to work on the project over the summer, and will be invited back to a ribbon-cutting next fall. Going forward, funds will be used to upgrade the sound systems in the gym and student center and to benefit various student groups, improvements with lasting effects. “We wanted this project to be something special, something that will last for generations to come,” said TenEyck. “Not only will this project physically enhance Heritage inside and out, but it is providing current students with an opportunity to put their amazing skills to work to create something real and lasting that they can come back to and visit with their own children someday.”

School Boards will be on hand to offer information and answer questions. LPS canceled its last two elections when nobody stepped up to run against the incumbents. This time, Bob Colwell, Renee Howell and Sue Chandler are all finishing their second four-year terms and cannot run again due to term limits. For more information and to RSVP, contact Mary Stevens in the superintendent’s office, 303-347-3391. Those considering a run for Littleton City Council should plan to attend a session led by City Clerk Wendy Heffner and City Manager Michael Penny, 6-8 p.m. June 6 at the Littleton Center,

2255 W. Berry Ave. Participants will find out about qualifications, nomination petitions, circulation requirements, political signs, Fair Campaign Practices Act requirements, reporting dates and more. An election guide will be available at the forum or from the city clerk’s office beginning June 7. For more information, call 303-795-3753 or stop by Littleton Center during business hours. Littleton’s municipal election is Nov. 5. School board and city council are both nonpartisan, so candidates don’t have to disclose any affiliation with a political party.

Homes Continued from Page 1

Many on the board agreed with opponents who say the project is too dense — at about 2.95 homes per acre, it’s higher than the 2.4 allowed by the town’s master plan. However, an exception can be made if a project proves to be superior. “I feel like let’s just build some apartments and be done with it,” said board member Carol Carson. They voted to recommend the town board of trustees approve the plan but with only 34 homes. They had lowered the number on the first plan, as well, but the trustees bumped it back up. The trustees could make the final decision on the new plan as early as next Tuesday. Board member Greg Armstrong addressed strong concerns from the adjacent Brookhaven neighborhood about an emergency access to which the trustees added a 50-foot easement the first time around. “It certainly would suggest that the town has an ulterior motive, and it’s that ulterior motive that has everybody on edge,” he said. Phil Sieber, town planner, said the trustees were very clear

that they wanted the right of way in case it ever needed to be a road — an idea the Brookhaven residents are very opposed to. Resident Richard Nicholson worried that approving the higher density would set a precedent that might be followed should the large Tuck property at the south end of town be developed. Sieber objected to that, saying precedent is set by what’s around the development, not across town. Two areas near Willowcroft have higher density than normally allowed. Rachel Parris of Colorado Preservation Inc. implored the board to find a way to save the Willowcroft residence. It’s the only 19th-century building in the town, she noted, and it was designed by master architect Robert Roeschlaub, also known for the Central City Opera House. CPI put the residence on its list of most endangered places in 2010, right alongside the state Capitol dome. It’s been on the Colorado State Register of Historic Places since 1993. Board member Germaine Gregg, city manager in 1993, said she regretted asking for the historic designation after realizing how far gone the property was. “It was historic, but I think that ship has sailed,” she said.

Tavern back before licensing board Members of authority will consider suspension By Jennifer Smith We care for patients in their homes, in our inpatient facility, in nursing homes and in assisted living residences.

We’re with our patients, supporting loved ones or being with patients who have no one else. Our patients are not alone.

jsmith@ourcoloradonews.com The Tavern’s management will need to make another appearance in front of the Littleton Licensing Authority after a server was cited for allegedly selling alcohol to an intoxicated customer — an incident that could result in a five-day liquor-license suspension tied to an earlier hearing being imposed. The March 14 incident occurred when police were conducting a bar check. According to the incident report, a man told them his girlfriend had slapped him and dumped a beer on him. She admitted it and was arrested. But while Officer Samuel Hufschmidt was interviewing the man, he noticed his speech was slurred and his eyes were watery. Although the man had only had two beers and two shots of Fireball whisky

at The Tavern, he told Hufschmidt he’d been at another establishment beforehand and had too many beers to count. His blood-alcohol content was .155 percent at the scene. Hufschmidt issued the server a citation and released her on her own recognizance. Based on the police report, the licensing authority determined there is enough evidence to proceed with a show-cause hearing, scheduled for June 12. A preliminary hearing will be held May 8, when the authority will consider any proposed settlement agreement. Among possibilities is that a fiveday suspension of the bar’s liquor license, stemming from a September incident but held in abeyance, could be imposed because of the recent allegation. The authority suspended The Tavern’s liquor license for seven days in January after an incident on Sept. 28 of last year. Five separate fights broke out in and around the downtown establish-

Kansas coping with Colorado pot Littleton resident accused of carrying 4 pounds By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@ourcoloradonews.com A Littleton resident is behind bars in Salina, Kan., after police say they found nearly 4 pounds of pot in her car. As reported by the Salina Journal, police pulled over 19-year-old Taylor A. Cedillo for speeding in a school zone on April 3. Struck with an overwhelming aroma of marijuana coming

from the car, officers searched it and found the drug in a number of bags and containers of various sizes, along with $3,200 in cash, according to the newspaper. Lt. Jim Norton, commander of the I-135/I-70 Drug Task Force, said Cedillo grew up in Salina and just moved to Littleton seven months ago to work in a medical-marijuana dispensary. She has an MMJ license, said Norton, but Colorado law allows patients to have only up to 2 ounces. Norton says people transporting pot across the state line is an increasing problem in Kansas, one that’s

likely to get worse once Amendment 64 is fully implemented. The new law makes it legal for adults in Colorado to have up to an ounce for recreational use. In Salina, a town of about 50,000, he estimates police have arrested at least eight people so far this year. It’s more common for people who live there to drive to Colorado to get pot and bring it back, he said, usually from people growing it themselves rather than dispensaries. “People seem to forget that Colorado ends at mile marker one,” he said.

Slaying may derail bail-bond measure Death of corrections chief could be game-changer By Vic Vela

vvela@ourcoloradonews.com The circumstances surrounding the recent slaying of Colorado’s prisons chief is causing Republican state lawmakers to have second thoughts on a bill that seeks to change how bail bond violators are punished. House Bill 1242, a Democratic-sponsored bill that would repeal the mandatory sentencing structure of bail bond violations, had GOP support just last month. That was then. This is Clements now. The bill’s fate is up in the air now that Republicans — some of whom voted for the legislation following a recent legislative committee hearing — are voicing opposition to the measure, causing Democratic leadership to yank the bill from being voted on last week. The bill, which is being sponsored by Rep. Brittany Pettersen, D-Lakewood,

ment w law do to ional

Colone,”

would give judges and prosecutors discretion in how they punish people who violate their release conditions while they are out on bond for a criminal charge. Currently, if a person violates conditions of bond for any reason — be it for the commission of a new crime or simply arriving late to a court hearing — he or she faces a mandatory one-year jail term, if their underlying charge is a felony. A bail bond violation for an underlying misdemeanor offense carries with it a mandatory six-month jail sentence. Pettersen believes that not all bond violations should carry equal punishment. “The bill leaves it up to judicial discretion to look at the circumstance, versus having a mandatory sentence,” Pettersen recently told Colorado Community Media. “If it’s somebody who can’t make it to court, versus somebody looking to flee, the judge can take that into account.”

Slaying casts shadow

The bill passed the House Judiciary Committee on a 10-0 bipartisan vote, following a March 26 hearing. It then passed the Appropriations Committee on April 9. But Republicans now cite parole-related missteps involving the man who allegedly murdered Department of Corrections Di-

rector Tom Clements last month, as a key reason behind their change of heart. Clements was killed in his Monument home on March 19, allegedly by Evan Ebel — who died in a shootout with authorities in Texas days after Clements’ death. Ebel, who had a long criminal history, was out on parole at the time of the killing. But it turned out that he had removed his ankle monitoring device while on parole, and that DOC did not become aware of the tampering until days after the fact. Though Pettersen’s bill has nothing to do with DOC monitoring, Republicans see the legislation as akin to having more criminals on the streets, when they don’t have to be. “I suspect there is an increased focus on these types of issues and these types of bills since we learned of the various failings in the DOC system, with regard to the Clements murder,” said Rep. Frank McNulty, R-Highlands Ranch. “And I do think that, for a lot of members, that did change their perspective.” Each of the four Republican House members who voted for the bill in committee are now either expressing concerns about the bill, or plan to change their votes: Polly Lawrence of Littleton, Bob Gardner of Colorado Springs, Jared Wright of Fruita and Carole Murray of Castle Rock.

But Pettersen points out that Clements’ death occurred before the March 26 committee hearing, and that her bill has nothing to do with allowing criminals to get a free walk whenever they violate their bail conditions. “That doesn’t mean that we don’t expect everyone to be in court when they’re supposed to be,” she said. “You can still do the max. It doesn’t take that option away.” House Majority Leader Dickey Lee Hullinghorst, D-Gunbarrel, said she still hopes to get the bill through, in spite of what she thinks are Republican behind-the-scenes games aimed at killing the legislation. “We’re having some difficulty on the (House) floor, which we’re having a hard time figuring out,” she said of Republican opposition. “Maybe its gotcha, I don’t know. I hope that after all the tomfoolery we’ll be able to pass a good bill.” But McNulty said Democrats should look at themselves in the mirror to find out why the bill is being stalled. “For them to say that’s on us, they either don’t recognize that they’re in the majority, or they have other issues on their side that they’re using as an excuse as they try to get out of it,” he said. The bill had yet to be voted on by press time on April 15.

opinions / yours and ours

Even a growth industry must have borders The work of both a task force and a committee is done, and now the business of drawing up rules to implement Amendment 64 is in the hands of the Colorado General Assembly. With less than a month left in the 2013 session, the Legislature will need to hustle on the matter of recreational marijuana. As lawmakers debate the merits of the recommendations they’ve been handed, one issue that will come up is how to deal with pot tourism. Already, a company promising cannabis-related vacations has sprouted in Denver, with April 20 — also known endearingly by many marijuanasmokers as “4/20” — being its first big push. It seems unlikely the Legislature would

our view altogether ban out-of-state folks from purchasing pot. Doing so would be against the advice of the Amendment 64 Task Force and would cost the state a potentially large source of revenue. But there could be limits imposed, perhaps below the threshold of those facing residents, on how much marijuana visitors could legally procure. And, certainly, the law would require them to smoke or otherwise partake here in the Centennial State. Amid myriad gray areas, at least one

question of the week

“I don’t really keep up with politics all that much, but overall I’d give them an F with the exception of one area, and that’s the medical marijuana issue. In that case, I’d give them an A.” — Duaine Miller, Aurora “I give them a solid B. So far, so good. I don’t follow politics all that much, but I think people in other states probably have it worse. Seems everybody here is pretty content, and that makes me happy.” — Brandon Alder, Centennial

While that amount would have been against the law even in Colorado — where residents may legally possess up to 1 ounce for recreational purposes or up to 2 ounces for medicinal reasons — it does shine a light on a problem. A commander with a Kansas drug task force told reporters Colorado pot is increasingly becoming a concern in his state. Like it or not, Colorado may be well on its way to becoming known as a destination spot for pot enthusiasts. But developing a reputation among neighboring states as a source of contraband is not acceptable. Our state’s legislators, law enforcement agencies and residents should work to nip this problem in the bud.

thing is black and white: What’s smoked in Colorado must stay in Colorado. We’re not endorsing use of marijuana in any way, but if you choose to use, remember that you are breaking the law if you take it outside state lines. Kansas, for one, has been a nervous neighbor since Amendment 64’s passage in November. Last month, Kansas’ appeals court ruled it is illegal to possess pot even if it was legally purchased in another state. (For that matter, possession is still in violation of federal law, but that’s a larger matter for another day.) Earlier this month, a Colorado woman was arrested in Salina, Kan., on charges of marijuana possession. She had nearly 4 pounds of pot, police say.

too much information all in one location. Maybe it’s my lack of focus, but I am literally a less productive reader than when I was reading just one book at a time. So many people know that I am a voracious reader and recommend books for me to read. So I research the book, and if it sounds interesting I download it. Before I know it, I have left one book and moved on to another before finishing the first one. I convince myself that I will be back to finish the previous book, but it never happens. As a matter of fact, it only got worse. More people refer more books and I lose my self-control and download more books. The cycle repeats itself and I end up where I am today, partially through a halfNorton continues on Page 11

That’s my story, and I’m a stick in the mud My therapist and I have been talking about dancing. Just not with each other. We’re trying to figure out why I have no interest in dancing or dance. I won’t do “The Loco-Motion” or “The Mashed Potato.” I don’t watch dancing, either. Ballet, ballroom, belly, pole, line, none of it. Torture would be watching “Dancing with the Stars.” Extreme torture would be watching “Lord of the Dance.” I don’t even like the Soupy Shuffle. A friend of mine sent me a YouTube of some fellow who had spliced together snippets of him doing the same appalling jig in locations around the world. She wasn’t happy when I said it was absolutely dreadful So far, all my therapist and I have been able to come up with is that I may have had a profoundly adverse reaction to glimpsing Arthur Murray when I was a boy. He always had a disturbing smile on his face, like a carousel horse. I don’t imagine there is anyone else anywhere who feels the same way about dancing as I do. I prefer to be largely inert. Keep the foxtrot away from me. No Native American dances, please. Hulas? No, no, no. Even the Ice Capades gives me the willies. Everyone else either loves to dance, watch dancing, or both. I don’t know what happened with me. My guess is that Boo Radley didn’t dance either, and that’s how I saw myself when I was in high school and college. That perception has changed, but I am still very reclusive, and I think I always will be. My drinking years didn’t loosen me up either. Well. They loosened me up to other things, but not moving and grooving. I don’t listen to dance music. Maybe that’s a part of it. I listen to Beethoven and Mozart. There may have been some dancing going on in “Amadeus.” I can’t remember. But dancing to Sinfonia Concertante would never cross my mind. Painting to it would. Perhaps painting is how I dance. The canvas is my partner? Maybe that’s a

stretch and maybe not. I have done a lot of painting demonstrations, and they’re about as publicly overt as I get. I might feel very differently if I were musical. I am not. Or if I had been encouraged at an early age to dance around the house or around the school. I wasn’t. I have no regrets. I admire Fred and Ginger and Baryshnikov, but if I had to choose between being a very good painter and being a very good dancer, it would be a very good painter. My dancing abstinence has not made me very attractive to many people (women!), so when I find one (I have) for whom it is A-OK, I value them. I am sure that most — or all — modern dance performances are choreographed, but the few I have seen pieces of look improvised. That would be the end of me. I was roped into seeing one some years ago, and my friend spent most of her segment, backlighted, under a lavender, translucent gauzy tent, so all I could see was her silhouette, kind of flailing around for 15 minutes. It didn’t do much for me. I know it was supposed to be meaningful, but I would much rather have seen her across the table from me in a diner. Sooner or later we all have to figure out what we are and what we are not. I think I have. I know it’s not too late to change. Maybe I will have some kind of revelation in my final years. But maybe these are my final years, so give me painting and writing, but don’t save the last dance for me. I think I am just going to tell my therapist that it is all Arthur Murray’s fault.

After reading and re-reading the frontpage story in the April 4 Independent on Mayor Brinkman suggesting a public election for mayor, I totally agree with Councilpersons Valdez and Cole. NO! Can Mayor Brinkman be so naive as to think a public election would be any less “political” (as recall our recent national election) than among the council members? Probably 75 percent of Littleton citizens are apathetic and ignorant as to who is running the city. Even fewer probably subscribe to the Independent. Sad, but true.

The Independent

Human nature being what it is, of course elections are “popularity” contests and “politics” is everywhere — families, schools, churches, the workplace and yes, government. The time and money spent on changing the city charter would be, well, a waste of time and money. I would like to commend the city council for their dedication and hard work in spite of expected personality conflicts. Keep on keeping on! Pat Kenning Littleton

Cherry Knolls fish kill mystery solved Faulty aerator depleted oxygen levels in water

Knolls Pond and immediately contacted a fish biologist with Colorado Parks and Wildlife to study the problem. A statement from South Suburban said several water samples were collected and tested. Results indicated there were no pollutants or viruses in the pond. “As of Friday, April 12, the aerator that caused the problem has been replaced and is operating,” said DeBartolomeis. “And so far, no more dead fish have been found.” The situation mainly affected carp living in the pond, and DeBartolomeis said district park rangers removed the dead fish on a daily basis to keep the area clean. “We don’t really have an accurate count of how many fish died,” DeBar-

tolomeis said. “We just clean them up and throw them away.” While fishing is permitted in Cherry Knolls Pond, DeBartolomeis said she is unsure of how the incident has affected stock levels. The pond is on a yearly stocking schedule, and Colorado Parks and Wildlife will be restocking it on a future date when it has been determined that the pond will sustain fish. “That decision is entirely up to them,” she said. “South Suburban has no say in when or how the pond is stocked.” District park rangers and other staff will continue to monitor the site on an ongoing basis. Cherry Knolls Pond is located in Cherry Knolls Park, 7077 S. Elizabeth St. in Centennial.

make calls, write proposals, write columns and coach clients, I can look at my bookshelf and see all the titles right in front of me in one location. My eyes can scan my shelves while talking on the phone and I can immediately pull a book off the shelf and look for the dog-eared pages or stickynote tabs and find what I am looking for right at that moment of need. When I thought about boxing up all of my books and when I imagined the empty shelves with a lone e-reader or iPad, I knew I had to find a happy medium and that going “all-in” with a digital solution was not the answer for me. So I am back to the bookstore, back to carrying one book with me in my bag, enjoying the feel of the book, the smell of the ink (It’s almost like

that new-car smell, you know what I mean?), and the sound as I turn each page. And I also carry my iPad where I keep just a couple of active materials. I downloaded an awesome reference Bible and I use my reader for the magazines I enjoy and need to keep up with trends in my industry. How about you — are you a virtual reader or do you enjoy reading a book you can touch and feel? If you have mastered the minimalist challenge when it comes to reading, I would love to hear all about it at gotonorton@gmail.com. I wish you all a better than good week.

All about aerification By Tony Koski, CSU Extension Turf Specialist

A few thoughts on lawn aerification (core cultivation) from now through the fall. If lawns aren’t being regularly watered (as is the case in many communities), the lawns will likely be so hard that aerification will not be terribly effective. That is, plugs will not likely be pulled from such hard lawns without the benefit of a good soaking rain or a couple of days of intensive irrigation. Lawns that are stressed due to some of the more extreme watering restrictions will not likely benefit from fall aerification (or earlier “beat the fall rush” aerification being promoted by some companies right now). These stressed lawns may actually suffer additional stress (traffic stress from the equipment, increased drying because of open holes). Aerification holes will promote drying of the soil if they do not heal over quick-

ly. On actively growing, regularly watered lawns the holes heal quickly. On stressed, infrequently irrigated lawns the holes will stay open longer and thus promote drying of the soil — something we don’t need at this point. Plus, drought stressed and (especially) non irrigated lawns will not produce much in the way of new roots this fall — even if they are aerified. In fact, they may produce more roots if left undisturbed (not aerified) than if they are aerified. Those lawns that are being watered enough to get good penetration/plug pulling would probably benefit because they are growing “normally” (new roots will form, holes will heal over). So, lawns that do not appear to be under stress and are irrigated regularly enough to allow effective pulling of cores can benefit from fall aerification. Where watering restrictions have resulted in stressed lawns and hard soil, aerification may not be effective and may actually cause more harm than good.

How to keep your land pest-free By StatePoint

Spending time outdoors can recharge the soul and bring the family together. In your own backyard you can fi nd beauty, enjoyment and a place to connect with nature — so long as you make sure to maintain all those beautiful trees and plants. Whether you have a garden, woodlands or natural landscaping on your property, you’ll want to keep your land healthy and free of unwanted pests. And experts say that woodlands need special attention. “Although trees look strong, woodland ecosystems are particularly vulnerable to natural and man-made dangers that can gradually reduce the health and beauty of your woods,” says Mike Burns, forester and program resource manager with the American Forest Foundation. A U.S. Forest Service assessment released last December predicts that as many as 34 million acres of forest land could be lost in the United States during the next 50 years, and that all regions in the Unittereded States will experience increased stress ssed,from natural disasters and pest infestawilltions. ying Luckily, there are steps landowners can ed attake to help keep trees and woodlands safe d (es-from pests: pro- • Keep an eye out for changes.

area. Contact your state forestry agency or state department of natural resources to find out what’s bugging your area. • Monitor for pests and signs of disease every month or two. Check trees on the trunk, limbs, twigs, under peeling bark and leaves — the most likely places to find injuries. Keep your eye open for things that look out of the ordinary. • Online resources can help you become a better steward of your land. If you own some woodlands, consider signing up for the My Land Plan resource, launched by the American Forest Foundation. My Land Plan can help you connect with upto-date information about pest threats, map your land’s boundaries and record changes over time, all at www.MyLandPlan.org. You can explore the website’s newly expanded invasive pest and pathogen section and locate professional services available for your needs. • If you suspect an outbreak, collect samples of tree damage and any associated pests to accurately identify the problem, which may have more than one cause. Take pictures and notes on your trees’ symptoms. Often pictures are enough for an expert to identify the problem and help you figure out what to do next. Next steps can be identified by your state forestry agency or department of natural resources. • If you discover an insect that you suspect might be a danger to your trees, seal it in a container and store it in the freezer until you can deliver it to a proper authority.

Tapestries adorn area museum Acclaimed Dutch artist creates colorful works

IF YOU GO The Claudy Jongstra exhibit will be at the Museum of Outdoor Arts indoor gallery on the second level of the Englewood Civic Center through July 13. It is located at 1000 Englewood Parkway. Hours: 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesdays through Thursdays; 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Fridays; 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturdays. Admission is free. 303-806-0444.

By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com “We believe that we, all of us, need to seek a new approach to the environment,” says internationally recognized Dutch artist Claudy Jongstra, whose works are on display at Englewood’s Museum of Outdoor Arts. Colorful tapestries hanging in the second floor atrium at Englewood’s Civic Center serve as an introduction to the exceptional collection displayed inside the Museum of Outdoor Arts’ indoor gallery. Step inside gallery doors and one is surrounded with fragrance, texture and intense color. Jongstra has worked with architects and curators throughout Europe and the U.S., spreading her message of sustainability, of connecting with nature — and beautifying large public spaces, as well as homes, restaurants and other environments. The new Barnes Collection in Philadelphia, the Fries Museum in the Netherlands, The Victoria and Albert Museum in London, Queen Mary University in London and the Lincoln Center for Performing Arts in New York are but a few of the institutions where her large felt panels are installed. Jongstra has a farm in the northern Netherlands where she keeps 150 sheep — 17th-century Drenthe Heath heritage animals with long shaggy coats — which supply the wool. A large garden grows traditional dye plants providing colors such as indigo, madder, St. John’s Wort, rhubarb,

environments where people work and live. Atlier associates Marleen Engebersen and Maeve van Klaveren, who work in Amsterdam, are with Jongstra to install the exhibit. Additional supplies are included in her work, such as silk, linen, merino wool, alpaca — all of them add textures to the work on display at MOA through July 13. In the gallery are a variety of panels and tapestries, skeins and bundles of yarn, samples of dried dye plants. A labyrinth of dried yellow chamomile flowers rests just to the right of the entrance beneath loops of dyed yarn samples. A countertop display illustrates the felting process, where wools are layered, then soaked and compressed. Ahead to the left are a series of sheer silk organza panels with wool felted onto them in a random design, like little clouds floating. Similar sheer panels at the end of the gallery in front of the windows are further enhanced with colored embroidery. A second labyrinth form on the floor is overlaid with carded silk, which has a silvery sheen. Wall panels to the left are covered in a felted linen and were made in Colorado with fabric shipped from the Netherlands. A large tapestry with a series of red circles leads a visitor into the smaller gallery space, which holds more and varied tapestries.

Makes sense

When the creative team behind the musical interpretation of Jane Austen’s classic novel “Sense & Sensibility” first presented their idea to Tony-nominated director Marcia Milgrom Dodge, she thought they were kidding. How could Austen’s iconic 1811 work of romantic fiction possibly translate into a piece for musical theater? But the team convinced Milgrom Dodge, who fell in love with the formidable project. The result made its world premiere April 5 in Denver Center’s Stage Theatre. The result is a whimsical romp through Parker continues on Page 23

We’ve gotten some strong feedback from the business; now let’s see if we can sell it.” Curtis said her motivation for exploring the reality TV possibilities was primarily financial. “Money inspired me ... to get out from underneath my debt faster!” she said.

REAL ESTATE AGENT SPOTLIGHT OF THE WEEK What is the most challenging part of what you do? What is one tip you have for someone looking to buy a Steve Sides house? Keeping up with the search for new opportunities. Agent

What do you most enjoy doing when you’re not working? I enjoy the outdoors and music; love to fish and play guitar – not at the same time.

What is one tip you have for someone looking to sell a house? The best tip I can give someone selling is to hire me. What I mean by that is that you need someone with a lot of knowledge and the ability to continue to learn. These two things create win / win for Sellers. The process is complicated and changing. I work at helping clients reach their goal. If they do then I win as well.

How long have you lived in the area? A REALLY long time – since birth What do you like most about it? I love the mountains and the outdoor opportunities. How long have you worked in Real Estate? 20 years What is your specialty and what does that mean for the people you work with? Foreclosures have always been a part of my business. Everything from helping people involved in the process to selling bank owned properties. We have done 100’s of properties and learned a lot.

It’s the same as for sellers except for one additional item. Lending has become very complex. Finding the right lender for your SPECIFIC case is essential. The pitfalls have grown over the past few years. Working with an agent and a loan originator that know how to get through it all is the biggest and the most important part of the process. What is the most unusual thing you’ve encountered while working in Real Estate? The most unusual and funniest cannot be mentioned here but I will say this… when you deal with people and professional services you see and hear lots of weird stuff. Usually what appears to be unusual is the expectations of people on all sides of a transaction. It seems weird but is usually due to lack of understanding and knowledge – sometimes funny and sometimes sad. The key is to stay ready to bring perspectives to together.

Randy Spierings, CPA, MBA

Branch Manager, Mortgage Lender

LMB# 100022405 NMLS# 217152 Primary Residential Mortgage, Inc. Office: 303-256-5748 www.BestColoradoMortgages.com rspierings@primeres.com Regulated by Division of Real Estate Has been a CPA for over 30 years

Q

: With housing at skyhigh affordability are lenders still lending? Can I get a loan with the new stricter lending standards that are out there today? Are there low down payment programs still available? : You are correct that lending standards have changed dramatically in the last few years as banks and lenders have gone from very loose standards, particularly on subprime loans in the 2000s, to stricter standards today. Verification of ability to repay and assets for downpayment (and sometimes reserves), are now required as the stated income/ stated asset or no income/no asset loans no longer exist. Waiting periods after bank-

A

ruptcies, loan modifications, short sales, and foreclosures have all been extended – but loans are still available, even for people that have had those credit blemishes. As for low down payment programs, many counties, as well as CHAFA, offer down payment assistance programs, although most of those come with income or asset qualifiers. Additionally, grant programs with income qualifiers reduce down payment requirements to around $1000. The VA loan program, for veterans, offers a no downpayment program, and VA fees can be waived for those with disabilities. FHA offers a program with only 3.5 percent of the purchase price as a downpayment. The USDA program also offers a zero down program in certain rural areas. Finally, conventional loans are available with as little as 5 percent down. If you’re looking to purchase or refinance, seek out an experienced, trustworthy, financially savvy lender, that you can meet face to face,

who has access to the full spectrum of loan and grant programs. Then work with them to select the proper loan and grant programs and have them customize them to best suit your needs. For more information on how you can purchase or refinance a home, please

contact our lending expert, Randy Spierings, CPA (over 30 years), NMLS #217152, branch manager for Primary Residential Mortgage, Inc., a local lender you can trust, at 303-256-5748 or rspierings@primeres.com. www. BestColoradoMortgages. com Regulated by the Divi-

guarantee and will give you $500 at closing if they don’t meet or exceed your expectations. They offer a full loan spectrum, including VA, FHA, USDA, Jumbo, and conventional, among others, and are among the top 10 retail FHA lenders in the U. S. today. n

“USA Today” recently included Denver International Airport in its list of the “world’s most beautiful airports.” Here’s what the story said: “Denver International Airport’s iconic peaked fiberglass roof is meant to resemble the Rocky Mountains. Interior details throughout the airport have sparked numerous conspiracy theories — everything from supposed Templar markings in the floors to the theory that the airport serves as the secret headquarters for the Illuminati.” For more of the story, plus recommended Denver sights worth seeing, go to www.usatoday.com/story/travel/ flights/2013/04/07/worlds-most-beautifulairports/2056899/.

Steak escape

The Travel Channel recently aired an episode of “Food Paradise” with a third “Steak Paradise” edition, which included a stop at Vesta Dipping Grill, 1822 Blake St. Personally, when I think Denver steak house, Vesta doesn’t come to top of mind, but the “Food Paradise” peeps “steaked” a claim to Vesta.

were found.) Only Otto Frank survived and he later found the diary and published it. There were clashes over food, space, ideas and mannerisms, while Anne and young Peter Van Daan grew close, despite her frustration with his low-key personality. This production would certainly be appropriate for upper elementary and secondary children to make them more aware of their history. Cast members include: Kaylene Wright (Anne Frank); Bob Leggett (Otto Frank); Debbie Pierce (Edith Frank); Lauren Hoylman (Margot Frank); Renee F. Posey (Miep Gies); Thomas Moran (Peter Van Daan); Les Sitter (Mr. Kraler); Susan Sitter (Mrs. Van Daan); Jim Honiotes (Mr. Van Daan); Bruce Weston (Mr. Dussel); Gary Troutman, Jeff Long and Bob Stansbury (First, Second, Third Man). Performances at LUMC are at 7 p.m. Friday, Saturday, Sunday and 2 p.m. Saturday. Admission is free.

In the piece, diners rave about Vesta’s beef steak dishes - including the signature surf and turf, which is a flatiron steak with Manila clams - as well as waxing poetic about Vesta’s venison filet. Former executive chef Matt Selby (who now runs the kitchen at Corner House), talks about the veracity of venison. The segment likely will air again on the Travel Channel, but until then, you can check it out at www.travelchannel.com/ video/a-steak-by-any-other-name.

Wings of Hope fights cancer

The Wildlife Experience in Parker will host the second Evening of Hope, a fundraising event for Wings of Hope, at 6 p.m. on Thursday, April 25. Author and former Vietnam War-era Air Force pilot Brian Shul will give a special presentation for the benefit for pancreatic cancer research at the University of Colorado Cancer Center. The event also will include a silent auction, drinks and hors d’oeuvres. Walt Imhoff, who lost his wife, Georgia, to pancreatic cancer in 2009, is the event’s presenting sponsor. Maureen A. Shul, who lost her brother and mother to pancreatic cancer, founded Wings of Hope and was the founding mayor of Castle Pines.

Spokes town

The people have “spoken” and Denver has emerged triumphant in REI’s hotly contested Cycle Town Showdown, which pitted several U.S. cities against each other in a battle to see which city was the most bike friendly. The outcome was no surprise to anyone who has enjoyed the Mile High City’s 850 miles of paved off-road bike paths and more than 300 days of sunshine every year. Denver defeated Portland in the final round of the eight-city NCAA Tournamentstyle bracket. See the final bracket at www. rei.com/features/infographics/cyclingtown-showdown.html.

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com As the audience enters the Vintage Theatre, it finds an old-fashioned wrap-around porch filling the stage — like the ones found on big old Southern homes. The setup for the band is just in front of the stage, which works really well — except perhaps for front row seats. Interaction between band and cast adds a nice note. Vintage Theatre, with director Deb Flomberg, has staged a really polished, well-designed production of the perennially popular “Best Little Whorehouse in Texas,” with its mix of ladies of the night and their wonderful madam, Miss Mona; twofaced politicians; a sheriff who just wants to run his territory undisturbed; and a bunch of randy football players. With score and lyrics by Carol Hall and a book by Larry L. King and Peter Masterson, the 1978 original Broadway production garnered six Tony Awards: for Best Musical, Featured Actor and Actress, Direction, Book and Choreography — in other words, a solid bit of material to work with. And Flomberg has picked up on the satire and humor to craft a well-paced, entertaining piece. The story is based on one written by King about the actual Chicken Ranch, in

Choreography by Jamie Horban is cleverly worked out in limited space and Shaun Albrechtson’s set allows scenes within and without. Some of said scenes are probably not appropriate for the youngest family members, but teens and adults should enjoy the lively music and action. “Really this show is about just forgetting your troubles, sitting back and getting lost in a world filled with bright colors, fun, music, dance — lots and lots of dance,” said Flomberg. “Look closely and you’ll also find a story of strength in the face of adversity, moral corruption, political strife and loyalty to those who matter most. But you’ll also find fringe. And cowboy boots. And maybe even some sequins.”

Esquibel, a scholar in the field, will talk at 1 p.m. April 20 about “Modern Usage of Santos.” He says we can use santos to enhance people’s lives. They can reconnect us to each other … ease pain and sorrow of this time and the circumstance in which we live. Modern usage is described as (1) Use of santos as a surrogate for our presence. (2) Use as teaching aids and devices. (3) Use to express a profound sentiment that cannot be expressed in any other way. (4) To celebrate accomplishments or mark significant public events. He will give examples and encourage conversation. He said he is tending the gallery on Saturdays.

Eagles extend lacrosse win streak Heritage boys team raises record to 5-4 By Tom Munds

‘Our kids are adjusting to the new defensive alignment and we are steadily improving.’ Brad Todd, Littleton coach

tmunds@ourcoloradonews.com The Heritage High School lacrosse team established a winning record for the first time this season on April 10 when they bested Littleton 14-2. “We got off to a slow start. One of our players got badly hurt early in the first game and it took our team a while to rebound,” Eagles coach Brandt Hodgson said before the Littleton game. “We have gotten it together and have won four in a row coming into today’s game.” With the Littleton game, the schedule keeps the Eagles busy. Heritage played George Washington on April 13 and were at home April 19 against Colorado Academy. Heritage then will have a home game in Littleton Stadium April 22 against Smoky Hill. The coach said the Eagles are strong all

across the board. He is using a regular rotation of two lines of midfielders and making spot substitutions from the third midfield line. He said the defense is playing well, with junior Michael Oldenberg in goal for the Eagles this season. “Michael played junior varsity goalie last year and is doing a good job for us this season,” Hodgson said. The Eagles have about 30 players on junior varsity and 30 on varsity this season. The coach said he feels the growing interest in lacrosse at Heritage is because it is a fun sport to play and the youth program does a good job getting athletes wanting to play lacrosse in the spring.

Across the field, Littleton coach Brad Todd guided his team through warm-ups. “We graduated a lot of players from last year’s team, so we have a lot of young guys coming up from the junior varsity to fill starting roles,” he said. “This is definitely a different look from the 2012 team, when we were 9-7 and made the playoffs.” The coach said the team’s strength is the ball-handling skills of the players on attack and the depth at midfield, which makes it possible for Todd to use a three-line rotation. “A lot of our defensive starters are new to varsity, so we changed up the schemes a bit,” Todd said. “Our kids are adjusting to the new defensive alignment and we are

steadily improving.” He said the April 10 game against Heritage is always special because it is against a rival as well a game that counts in the league standings. Things don’t get any easier for Littleton after the Heritage game, On April 12 they played Colorado Academy and April 17, they were on the road against Kent Denver, a team tied for the league lead. The Lions return home April 19 against Rangeview in a 4:30 p.m. game in Littleton Stadium. The Eagles took control early in the April 10 game against the Lions. Heritage scored the first five goals and the score never got any closer as the Eagles won, 14-2. Heritage took 27 shots on goal. Joshua Davis had two goals and an assist, Matthew Rosenbaugh had two goals as nine players put the ball in the net for the Eagles. Heritage goalie Michel Oldenberg faced 17 shots on goal and made eight saves. Littleton got goals from Riley Herges and Joe Timms. Aaron Montfort, in goal for the Lions, faced 27 shots on goal and made 13 saves.

high school sports roundup League play opens in baseball

Continental League baseball teams opened the league season April 8 and ever since have been battling weather delays. Chaparral, ranked second in the Class 5A poll, scored five runs in the seventh inning to defeat Legend, 9-5, in the league opener as Max Kuhns, Josh Nicol and Zac Guy each drove in two runs for the Wolverines. Carter Kling hit a two-run homer for the Titans and Tanner Thompson had three hits. Trevor Smeeton threw a complete game, allowing only one run and five hits, as Castle View downed ThunderRidge, 2-1, to hand the Grizzlies their first loss of the season. Ellis Kelly had three hits and drove in both Sabercats runs in the fifth inning. Fifth-ranked Mountain Vista broke a 5-5 tie with four runs in the sixth inning in a 9-5 win over Highlands Ranch, Regis Jesuit pounded Douglas County, 11-1, and Heri-

tage scored all its runs in the fifth inning to beat Littleton, 5-4, despite being outhit 9-5 by the Lions. Big offensive efforts highlighted April 11 league games. Sophomore Zach Broussley hit a grand slam home run and a two-run double in the fourth inning and had six RBI as Castle View scored 14 runs in the frame and rolled to a 17-4 win over Littleton. Brody Westmoreland had five hits and drove in eight runs in ThunderRidge’s 17-0 blanking of Ponderosa. Rowdy Sheets threw a five-inning, one-hit shutout. Logan Kiefer went 3-for-3 as Douglas County beat Rock Canyon 6-0 behind Trent Maloney’s shutout pitching. Riley O’Brien struck out nine batters and allowed only one run at No. 2 Chaparral downed Regis 4-1. In April 12 Continental League games, Dean Hoth had four hits including a home

run as Mountain Vista whipped Castle View, 11-1, ThunderRidge came from behind to beat Douglas County, 14-4, and Chaparral edged Highlands Ranch, 9-8. Kling and Anthony Kaasch each had three hits as Legend defeated Highlands Ranch, 15-11, in an April 13 game. Class 2A Lutheran stormed Kent Denver, 24-9 on April 11 as Davey King had four hits and eight RBIs. The Lions hit five home runs in the game. Lutheran swept a doubleheader from Denver Science and Tech April 13, winning 10-2 and 25-6. Nathen Stehler went 6-for-7 with seven RBI in the twin bill. Valor Christian, a Class 4A team, improved its record to 7-6 with a 14-4 triumph over Roosevelt on April 11 and a 6-2 victory over Pomona April 12. Daniel Butler gave up only one earned run and struck out 11 in earning a seven-inning pitching win over Pomona.

Softball games to increase?

The CHSAA Legislative Council meets April 18 in Aurora. The Continental League will introduce a sports/activities proposal to increase the number of girls softball games from 19 to 23 for Classes 4A and 5A only. The proposal requires a majority vote of the 70 CHSAA legislative members to pass.

Knoll’s five goals lead way

Brooke Knoll had five goals and was credited with one assist to lead Douglas County/Castle View to a 15-6 win over Valor Christian in an April 11 Continental League girls lacrosse game. ThunderRidge sophomore Kirsten Greenlaw continues to lead the Continental League in scoring, assists and points. She has 36 goals, 13 assists and 49 points in seven games.

As the NCAA men’s basketball tournament whittled itself down from 68 teams to the Final Four, the players weren’t the only ones advancing from round to round. Officials were also judged on their performances. And for the fourth time in his 20-year career officiating Division I college basketball, Highlands Ranch resident Randy McCall made it all the way to the Final Four. McCall’s officiating tenure began as a college student at the University of Northern Colorado when he started picking up area high school games. After graduation, he made the gradual transition to lower-tier collegiate ball and in 1992 began blowing his Heri-whistle at the Division I level. ainst And for those who watched n thethe Michigan-Syracuse semifinal game April 6, it was McCall who etonmade the controversial charging theycall against the Orange with just l 17,less than two minutes to play that nver,helped the Wolverines cement Lionstheir victory. ew in

The former Cherry Creek High School athletic director said he watched the play multiple times after the game, and is more than confident he made the right call. “Certainly, as referees, if we can make it through a game without a play like that where we have to make a boom-boom ruling, it makes it easier for everybody,” he said. “Right, wrong, indifferent, at the end of the day I had a decision to make. It was a hard play and it had an influence on the outcome. That’s just the way it is. “I’ve had a lot of people say it was a great call, and I’ve had a lot say it was a `hard call to make’ which in referee terms means they would have called it different. … There are tough plays like that in every game but when it happens late in the game the perceived impact is a bit more magnified. I’m sure there are a lot of people who would like to crucify me for that one play, but there are a lot of people who say I got it right.” McCall isn’t losing any sleep over it, that’s for sure, and said that officials always have a good feeling of whether they got the game right, and in this case, he said they did. “I haven’t been in a game where any of us have been perfect yet,” he said. “The reality of it is there’s an accumulation of a lot of things that lead to one team winning.”

What McCall is most concerned with is fairness, and he will be the first to admit that can be one of the biggest challenges in a game where three men are working together and none see exactly what the others are seeing and calling. “You have a good idea, but never know for sure. It’s a challenge,” he said. “It’s not like being a baseball umpire where you are going to sit back there and you know the guy is going to throw a ball or a strike. Our game is so fast, and so unpredictable.” McCall, who referees in the Mountain West, Pac-12, Western Athletic Conference and Missouri Valley Conference during the season, said it’s a bit of an affirmation to advance through the rounds and be selected for the Final Four, but it isn’t everything. “Anyone who hangs their hat on whether they are moved on to the second weekend or the Final Four, if that’s all they are going to judge their year by, I think they’re nuts,” he said. “There are so many really good referees out there.” Other Final Four games McCall has done include the 2004 National Championship game between Connecticut and Georgia Tech, the 2005 semifinal between Michigan State and North Carolina and the 2010 semifinal between Duke and West Virginia.
