An officer’s end of watch Suspect goes free on bond By Jennifer Smith

of mourners as law-enforcement officers stood vigil over Denner’s casket, draped in the American flag, and most of the Littleton Police Department looked on. Officer Krista Bunten worked closely with Denner in the detective unit, where he specialized in catching Internet predators. The looming 6-foot-7 officer would pose as a young teen, trying to lure them in. “He was a police officer without a mean bone in his body,” said Bunten. She cried as she told his wife, Kristin, and young children, Kaidin and Kaitlin, how much he loved them. Enley said the most important

The man charged with causing Littleton Police Officer Kevin Denner’s death in a traffic collision is free on $50,000 bond. An angry Magistrate Frank Moschetti on May 10 ordered Jemal Dawed to stay within 20 miles of the metro area, be tracked by GPS and submit to monitored sobriety. However, he declined the prosecution’s request to increase Dawed’s bond from $50,000 to $150,000. Dawed is charged with vehicular homicide, driving under the influence of alcohol, careless driving and failure to yield the right of way. He was not injured in the crash. Moschetti was clearly annoyed at Dawed’s attorney, Wazir-Ali Muhammad Al-Haqq, after the lawyer was more than an hour late for the May 10 bond hearing. Al-Haqq said he had locked his keys in his running car and needed help from the fire department to get back in. Al-Haqq proceeded to argue his case, saying Dawed has no intentions of skipping bail and no criminal history. He accused the prosecution of insinuating Dawed might leave the country just because he’s from Africa, where his par- Dawed ents still live. He appeared in court with an interpreter who speaks Amharic, the official language of Ethiopia. “Before you start blaspheming opposing counsel, you should be on time and listen to their argument,” Moschetti said, loudly and pointedly. What prosecutor Brittany Martin did say was that a $50,000 bond was “wholly inadequate” in this case. Her team has discovered seven different addresses for Dawed and was unable to confirm his employment status. “We believe Mr. Dawed is a flight risk,” said Martin. Al-Haqq said Dawed is an American citizen and has worked as a driver at Denver International Airport for six years. He pointed to three rows of people who he said were there to vouch for Dawed. Dawed has surrendered his passport to his bail bondsman, who agreed to turn it over only to the court when he gets his money. “A $100,000 bond would be oppressive and unjustified,” said Al-Haqq. District Attorney George Brauchler is personally prosecuting the case. “I made a commitment when I came into this office that if a police officer is murdered or someone attempts to murder them, or

rial service held at Mission Hills Church on the morning of May 10. “Kevin dedicated himself to protecting those who could not protect themselves.” But there was nobody who could protect Denner enough to save him on May 6. Denner, 42, was riding his Harley-Davidson motorcycle when, police believe, the driver of a Toyota failed to yield the right of way. Denner struck the vehicle’s passenger side and died at the scene. Julie Anderson was there, just passing by when it happened. She says Denner died peacefully, with no fear on his face. “We all wanted and waited for a miracle, but none was to come,” she told hundreds

Markets sprout, and farmers survive The early morning chill, left over from winter’s most recent unwelcome blast, settles along the quiet street where blue and white canopies have popped up like overdue buds, signaling the arrival of the season’s first farmers market. Soft music, lingering from a nearby restaurant, punctures the hush, along with occasional laughter and voices from vendors as they ready tables with wares and hopes for a good day. Danish bakery workers pull sugar-crusted strudels — apricot and apple raisin — from their truck to shelves along the sidewalk. Nearby is the homemade peanut butter woman and the Angus beef man and the cheerful El Salvador cook. At the end is the farmer. He is 63, the great-grandson of a farmer who bought a plot of land 108 years ago in Welby, between Denver and Thornton, off North Washington Street. Today, he has 80 acres in Hudson, a country town of 2,300 northeast of Denver on Interstate 76, a solid hour-and15-minute drive to the Sunday market in Highlands Ranch. He stands next to his white truck, watching the market unfold, an ever-present cigarillo clutched in a weathered hand that tells a story of a working life rooted in the soil. He is a content man whose easy smiles crinkle soft grooves around blue eyes that peer intently from a sun-worn face. “I might not be farming today if it weren’t for the markets,” Alan Mazzotti says. “They’ve kept us in business.” And they’ve kept us, the customers, connected to a less complicated time, when people knew who had grown the food on their table — a slice of knowledge that cultivated gratitude and nurtured community. Sean and Maria McAfee, married 22 years, can’t drive by a farmers market without stopping, whether it’s along the coastal drive to San Francisco or in their

hometown. When they lived in Evergreen, they visited the local market there every Tuesday. Now, in Highlands Ranch, they never miss a Sunday. It’s a matter of principle and a matter of friendship. Besides the benefit of fresh produce, “I’d rather pay a little more to support local people,” Maria says. “We’re big believers in moving away from the Walmart-ization of the U.S.” And, over the years, many vendors have become friends — the Angus beef man invited them to his wedding last year. “They become part of the fabric of your life,” Maria says. “We were so excited,” Sean says of the week leading up to opening day. “We were talking about this all week.” They walk away, hand in hand, each with a small bag. Basil and oregano seedlings in one, peanut butter, pasta and honey in the other. This time, “we didn’t have a lot to buy,” Maria says. “It was seeing old friends.” Colorado has more than 100 farmers markets, with about half in the Denver metro area, according to the state Department of Agriculture. They operate individually or through sponsoring organizations. Most are seasonal, running from May through October, and their

arrival seems to signal the start — finally — of summer. The Metro Denver Farmers Market, founded 36 years ago, is the oldest organization. And that’s how long Mazzotti, an original member, has been selling at the outdoor markets, which he estimates have kept 70 percent of local farmers in business. In fact, he says, most farmers grow specifically for the markets. He has corn, carrots, green beans, cauliflower, sweet corn, cucumbers, winter and summer squashes, parsley, basil. “I can’t think fast enough,” he says as he rattles off the list. Farmers do have other outlets such as fruit and vegetable stands, garden centers and pumpkin patches. But they expect to earn most of their money in the summer markets. They are, however, no longer just for farmers. Walk through any market and you’ll see the realization of a melting pot of dreams. There’s the gourmet nut man, stirring almonds with a wooden paddle in a copper vat as a tantalizing aroma draws a crowd. There’s a local children’s book author. And there’s Monse Perez Hines, the young Salvadoran wife of a military man, who drives up from Colorado Springs each week to sell curtido and pupusas, traditional foods she makes in her home which are so popular she always returns with empty coolers. “I’ve received such great support from everyone here,” she says. And “I’ve been able to share my culture.” And Evi Bujdoso of Hungary, selling Danish pastries. She wears a white apron, and her short, blond hair pokes out from beneath a white cap. A half hour from closing time, just a handful of strudels and a few croissants are left. “We weren’t prepared all the way,” she says with a slight accent and a quick smile. “People were excited to see us back again.” As vendors begin to pack up, Mazzotti stands by his truck, behind the tables and ground laden with pansies, petunias and geraniums in planters, baskets and trays. Herb seedlings, also from his greenhouse, sit in the canopy shade. It’s too early in the season for most vegetables and fruit. The day’s proceeds: Just OK. “A little chilly,” he explains. But that’s all right. He’s reconnected with many of his customers, some now friends, like the brothers in their 90s at the Auraria market in Denver that he’s known for 30 years and who even visit his farm at times. Next week, he hopes to bring asparagus, spinach and lettuce with his flowers. Come June, he’ll be trucking loads of vegetables to six markets a week. Down the row of vendors, he watches canopies folding shut — like tulips closing at day’s end. Like the others, he loads up and heads for home. “I’m tired,” he says. A smile quickly appears. “I’m getting older every day.” And rest won’t come until the plants are back in the greenhouse, the truck is cleaned, the crops tended, the chores all done. Then, he’ll enjoy the peace of the land, the lack of pavement that traps heat, the friendliness of country neighbors. “I have to make a living. I have to feed my family, too.” But more than anything, he says, working the land and sharing its yield with the rest of us, “is a way of life.” A farmer’s life. And a good life. You’ll find farmers markets listed at www.coloradofarmers.org. Ann Macari Healey’s column about people, places and issues of everyday life appears every other week.

Ex-Bronco partners with mental health team Dilts takes position to kick depression

LAWMAN NAMED COMMUNITY LEADER OF THE YEAR The Arapahoe/Douglas Mental Health Network named Douglas County Sheriff’s Capt. Attila Denes the community leader of the year for his work as the agency’s Crisis Intervention Team coordinator. The CIT team trains law-enforcement officers to recognize signs of a mental health crisis and to help assess proper response while in the field. Denes implemented the CIT program in the south metro area and eventually helped the program expand statewide. Part of the program’s goal is to eliminate the stigma of mental illness and increase access to treatment through education, advocacy and support. “I am deeply honored and humbled to work with so many dedicated professionals who have dedicated their lives to mental health issues,” Denes said. Denes has been a board member of the Crisis Intervention Teams Association of Colorado since 2007. For more information about the association, visit citac.us.

By Rhonda Moore

rmoore@ourcoloradonews.com When former Bronco Bucky Dilts came to the end of a long road of tribulations that included the loss of two family members to suicide, he decided to go public with his story. Questioning his skills as a public speaker, he heeded advice that proved wise. Dilts was the keynote speaker May 10 at the Arapahoe/Douglas Mental Health Network benefit luncheon. Before a packed crowd, he stepped up to the lectern to “just tell his story” about his experience with mental illness. His story held the crowd rapt. Dilts joined the NFL in 1977 as a punter with the Denver Broncos, leaving the league after three years to launch a career in sales. His first brush with depression came in 1984, with the suicide of his 28-year-old sister. Twelve years later, suicide touched his life again when Dilts and his wife received news that his mother-in-law took her own life. The personal crises continued in 2000, when Dilts lost his wife to divorce after 20 years of marriage. At the time, it was his darkest hour. He isolated himself from friends and family, went through four jobs in six years and began to entertain dark thoughts of his own. “I couldn’t do anything,” Dilts said. “I was just about thinking about suicide. I was

The Arapahoe/Douglas Mental Health Network benefit luncheon was held May 10. From left are master of ceremonies Dave Aguilera, CBS Denver; Joan DiMaria, executive director, ADMHN; keynote speaker Bucky Dilts; and community leader of the year Capt. Attila Denes of the Douglas County Sheriff ’s Office. Photo by Rhonda Moore almost there.” In 2004, Dilts’ ex-wife was diagnosed with Stage IV cervical cancer. She did not want to tell the couple’s two children, who would not know they were losing their mother until about two months before her 2006 death. In the wake of her death, Dilts threw himself into the task of raising his children, until his world was derailed again. In 2008

‘Every 15 minutes someone in the United States dies by suicide. We can and we will end that.’ Joan DiMaria, executive director of the Arapahoe/Douglas Mental Health Network

Congratulations Class of 2013!

Dilts got his own diagnosis — prostate cancer. “It really got to me,” he said. “But it gave me an opportunity to talk about things people don’t want to talk about and it led me to this.” After Dilts successfully fought his cancer, he embarked on a speaking career to address the stigma of suicide and the effects of depression. He ran into some resistance among family members who didn’t want him to expose his family’s experience, showcasing the stigma he says ranks among the greatest treatment challenges. “People want to hide it,” he said. “They’re ashamed of it to the point they won’t seek treatment. Others don’t want to talk about it at all. It’s time to shelve stigma. Stigma sucks.” Dilts partnered with the Arapahoe/

Douglas Mental Health Network to help promote its latest effort for treatment of mental health issues. The network serves residents of Arapahoe and Douglas counties with free and reduced-cost mental health treatment in Littleton, Englewood, Parker and Castle Rock. The network launched a Mental Health First Aid course to teach people how to recognize signs of mental illness in hopes of reducing the number of suicides in Colorado. The number of suicides through April in Douglas County was 25, compared with 14 at the same time in 2012, according to the Douglas County Coroner’s Office. “Every 15 minutes someone in the United States dies by suicide,” said Joan DiMaria, executive director of the Arapahoe/ Douglas Mental Health Network. “We can and we will end that.” For more information about the Mental Health First Aid course or to find a treatment center near you, visit admhn.org or call 303-730-8858. The network’s emergency mental health help line is 303-730-3303.

m It’s all about animals at bill-signing Protection act, focus on shelter pets become law By Vic Vela

vvela@ourcoloradonews.com Dogs had their day in Denver on May 13, as Gov. John Hickenlooper signed two pieces of legislation that led to some serious tail-wagging from our four-legged friends. The governor — who brought his dog Sky to a bill-signing at the Denver Animal Shelter — put his signature on a bill aimed at protecting dogs whenever police are called to their owners’ homes, and another that designates dogs — and cats — that are adopted from animal shelters as the state pets. “These pets become a huge part of people’s lives,” Hickenlooper said. Each bill received support from Democrats and Republicans in the General As-

sembly this legislative session. “This is a bipartisan day for dogs,” said Sen. David Balmer, R-Centennial, who was flanked by Democratic lawmakers, Sen. Lucia Guzman and Rep. Lois Court, both of Denver. The three co-sponsored Senate Bill 226, known as the “Dog Protection Act.” The bill requires law enforcement agencies to put in place training, and to adopt policies and procedures that officers would be required to adhere to whenever they respond to homes where there are dogs. The measure allows dog owners the opportunity to put their pets outside or into another room whenever police come to the home for calls involving non-violent situations.

PERCENTAGE OF THIRD-GRADERS READING AT PROFICIENT OR ADVANCED LEVELS

ealthBy Jennifer Smith o rec-jsmith@ourcoloradonews.com es of lora- Littleton Public Schools third-graders ril inoutpaced the state average on this year’s th 14Transitional Colorado Assessment Program o thereading test by 13 percentage points. “We are very proud that our third-grade thereading scores continue to be so high,” said n Di-Scott Murphy, LPS superintendent. “These hoe/scores are a clear reflection of the dedicacantion our students, parents, teachers and principals have to helping each student entalachieve at a high level. We are always lookreat-ing to improve, and these tests help us pinrg orpoint areas that need more attention.” This is the second year the TCAP has ealthbeen administered since it replaced the Colorado Student Assessment Program, or CSAP. It’s bridging the gap until new state standards are fully established. Eighty-six percent of all LPS third-graders scored proficient or advanced on this year’s test, compared with 73 percent at the state level. Gains were made in six of the 15 schools. “LPS has initiated a strong focus on literacy at the elementary level,” reads a press release accompanying the scores. “The five elementary schools serving students with the greatest needs have had five years of

lated dog shootings around the state. Erie resident Brittany Moore’s German Shepard, Ava, was 4 years old when it was shot to death by a police officer there two years ago. “We’ll always miss her and she’ll always be in our hearts,” Moore said afterward. “But I think this was a huge deal, this bill. I think it’s going to help a lot of situations,” The bill received unanimous support from both legislative chambers this session. The same cannot be said about Senate Bill 201, which designates cats and dogs that have been adopted from state animal shelters and rescues as the state pets. The bill received criticism from animal breeder and retail groups, who felt that the legislation created a perception that it’s better to obtain pets from shelters and rescues, than from other places where pets can be adopted or purchased. At times, legislative committee hearing testimony, and debate inside the House and

Senate, resulted in lengthy discussions. Democratic Sen. Andy Kerr of Lakewood, a bill sponsor, who brought his young son and his dog to the event, joked about the contentious nature of the legislation. Just before Kerr was about to speak, playful dogs behind the podium got their leashes tangled up, which caused the Colorado state flag to tip over. “Next time somebody brings me a bill and says this is a nice, easy little bill ...” quipped Kerr. “It’s kind of like taking your 3-year-old son and your dog to a bill-signing, and then trying to catch the Colorado flag at the same time.” Rep. Brittany Pettersen, D-Lakewood, also a sponsor of Senate Bill 201, said the challenges that surrounded the legislation were worth it, in the end. “These are our most vulnerable animals, who need homes,” she said. “And it’s about bringing awareness and the importance of adopting animals.”

intensive literacy training and intervention; other elementary schools have had a literacy focus for three or four years. As a result, overall LPS third-grade reading scores have steadily increased or remained very high.” Five elementary schools have more than 90 percent of kids reading at a proficient or above: Littleton Academy charter school (98), Franklin (96), Wilder (95), Lenski (94) and Sandburg (92). Coming in at less than the state average number of proficient and above readers are East (68) and Field (62). Building on last year’s 7 percent increase in the number of students with disabilities who scored proficient and advanced, this year showed an additional 3 percent increase for a total of 10 percent over two years. English-language learners performed better overall this year than last.

Rezoning moratorium is non-starter Council unanimously rejects proposal by citizens’ group By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@ourcoloradonews.com Littleton City Council flatly rejected a moratorium on rezoning proposed by a citizens’ group on May 7. Citizens for Rational Development is concerned about the sudden spate of growth in the city, particularly apartment complexes already approved or pending. All told, there are about 2,000 units in the works, more than 900 of them at the Marathon site on South Broadway. CRD spokesman John Watson’s argument touched on everything from density to traffic to property values. “But the citizens are here tonight because they’re concerned way beyond those issues,” he told council. “They’re concerned about their neighborhood issues.” About 30 people spoke during the 3½hour meeting, which also addressed council’s new economic plan. About twice as many were in favor of the moratorium as

those against it. South Metro Realtors Association and the South Metro Denver Chamber of Commerce heard about CRD’s plan just a few days before and quickly rallied members to champion a “Littleton is open for business” message. “No one in their right mind would impose a moratorium on their business, and any government that does so, does so at their peril,” said John Brackney, chamber president. Brinkman “The last thing you want to do is put government inhibitors in the way of market progress,” agreed Kay Watson, SMDRA board member. But CRD has had time to organize since last December, when they found out about a proposal for a 325-unit project planned for the old sheriff’s building at Littleton Boulevard and Bemis Street, and they’ve assembled a diverse group of community activists. Paul Bingham, longtime council-watch-

er, has been with CRD from the beginning and urged council to consider the moratorium. “It’s for a very narrow segment of the market,” he said. “It’s not a total building ban.” Betty Harris, long active in local Democratic politics, said overbuilding of multifamily development is short-sighted. “Once the infill is filled up with apartments, there’s no way to do a do-over,” she said. “We must implement impact fees rather than shafting the public once again.” Impact fees are the only thing just about everyone in the room agreed on. City Manager Michael Penny explained that residential developers are currently only charged a fee for parks and open space. Staff is drafting an ordinance to change that, and Penny said only one project under consideration will go through prior to its presumed passage. “We concur with all the comments here about development paying its own way,” he said. In the end, council unanimously shot down the moratorium. “We have spent the last two years trying to tell the public and potential developers

that we’re open for business, that we’re no longer closed, that we don’t have a fence built around us that says `we don’t want you,’” said Councilor Jim Taylor. Councilor Phil Cernanec said the city can put the right burden in the right place without a moratorium, and Mayor Pro Tem Bruce Stahlman and Mayor Debbie Brinkman agreed. “Developers are going to come in and say what they want to do, and guess what? We get to say yes to it or we get to say no to it,” said Brinkman. Councilors Bruce Beckman, Peggy Cole and Jerry Valdes noted that many of the speakers had valid points. “Community values were expressed tonight that council needs to keep at the forefront of the discussion,” said Beckman. Watson said the group is considering trying to petition the matter onto the November ballot, but will wait until council rules on the old sheriff’s building rezone. “I feel that the citizens will continue to present these issues until they are resolved,” he said. “We all have the best interests of the city at heart, and we expect them to get resolved.”

Activists want their ideas on ballot Aviation laws take flight in Centennial Group unhappy about high-density projects By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@ourcoloradonews.com Look for Citizens for Rational Development to be pounding the pavement in the coming weeks, as group members try to petition two ordinances onto the November ballot. CRD is a group of Littleton residents who have banded together to fight high-density projects, particularly around the two lightrail stations, and are calling on city council to implement strategic plans to guide development. Carol Brzeczek announced the move during the May 7 Littleton City Council meeting, which lasted nearly four hours. About 30 people spoke during public comment, many urging a moratorium on rezoning. Along those lines, the first proposed ordinance would require the seven-member council to pass rezoning requests with a supermajority of five councilors, as required by state law. Littleton’s home-rule charter supersedes state law on most things, and it allows those changes to pass with a simple majority. “We believe that the change is necessary because any rezone of a property impacts those nearby, and the original zoning is relied upon by those people,” said Brzeczek, who is active with both the Sunshine Boys local activist group and CRD. “When that promise is to be broken, we believe that decision should fall to a higher standard than just the simple majority.” Recent votes on Littleton Commons apartments and Breckenridge Brewery breezed through unanimously. However, notes Brzeczek, the 2007 Walmart vote and the Nevada Place deci-

sion earlier this year would not have been approved under her proposal. “We believe this puts the advantage of any rezoning on the side of the citizens, and not developers,” she said. Councilor Peggy Cole said she would be interested in considering such an ordinance, but Councilor Jim Taylor flatly disagreed. “We adopted a home-rule charter to get away from the state, and frankly, I don’t even want to see an ordinance come before us,” he said. CRD’s second proposal is to limit council’s use of executive sessions. “We believe that there should be very few reasons for our elected representatives to be discussing the public’s business behind closed doors,” said Brzeczek. “Our councils, past and present, behind closed doors make severance agreements and other arrangements that cost the taxpayers plenty and would remain unknown unless the citizens are smart enough to ask for the agreements through a Colorado Open Records Act request. We believe that the citizens of Littleton deserve to know just how every dollar of our tax money is spent and which council member supports that spending.” The change would allow council to meet in executive session to discuss only matters that are required to be confidential by state and federal law and ongoing lawsuits. It would prohibit them from turning off the recording when meeting with their attorney, and require them to keep the tape until all the councilors are no longer on council. Sponsoring the ordinances along with Brzeczek are four others active with CRD: Frank Atwood, Betty Harris, Jose Trujillo and Mary Bradford. The group will have 90 days to gather nearly 1,600 signatures from those who support the effort to put the ordinances to a vote of the people. They’re due at the city clerk’s office on Aug. 7.

Hickenlooper inks new legislation at airport ceremony By Deborah Grigsby

dgrigsby@ourcolorado news.com Three new aviation-related bills were signed into law by Gov. John Hickenlooper, two of which benefit Colorado’s growing aviation and aerospace industry. The bill-signing took place May 13 in the Denverjet Center lobby at Centennial Airport. One bill, known as the “Aviation Development Zone Act,” grants Colorado aircraft manufactures a $1,200 state tax credit for each new employee hired, another extends the Colorado job growth incentive tax credit by an additional five years, and the third creates a special license plate for the Civil Air Patrol. Hickenlooper lauded House Bills 13-1080 and 131287 as “huge job creators,” not just for Centennial, but for all airports around the state. “People often say I spend too much time trying to get companies to put their headquarters here,” Hickenlooper said. “The fact is, for every big company that locates here, there are several smaller companies that come in and feed off the

new economic cluster created.” “That runway out there is not just a piece of concrete that connects Arapahoe and Douglas counties,” said Republican Rep. Chris Holbert of Parker, one of the HB 13-1080 sponsors. “It’s actually a portal to new opportunities.” House District 43 Republican Rep. Frank McNulty joked that SB 13-060 was not really a jobs bill, “unless you’re an inmate in Canon City.” The bill, sponsored by McNulty, creates a Civil Air Patrol license plate. “This is just a small way to recognize the tremendous work this organization

does,” he said. Hickenlooper signed the license plate bill into law on the tail of a Civil Air Patrol plane, much to the delight of several uniformed CAP members in attendance. According to Airport Executive Director Robert Olislagers, who helped author major portions of the Aviation Development Zone Act, aviation in Colorado contributes an estimated $11 billion to the economy and supports more than 340,000 jobs. Centennial is currently home to several major aviation and aerospace companies, including Sierra Nevada Corp. and Jeppesen.

By Jennifer Smith jsmith@ourcoloradonews.com The Heritage High School Class of 2013 has a lot to brag about. The school is on U.S. News and World Report’s list of best high schools, chosen from across the nation based on state proficiency standards and how well they prepare students for college. It’s also on the Washington Post’s list of America’s most challenging high schools, which includes about 1,900 public and private schools from across the country. In April, the students honored one of their own with the Lone Survivor Obstacle Course, part of the school’s always successful MAD Week. “MAD” stands for “Make a Difference,” and they do. They’ve raised more than $115,000 since 2006 and constructed an entire school, Heritage High School of Kabala, in Sierra Leone, Africa. This year they chose to honor Danny

Dietz, a Navy SEAL who graduated from Heritage in 1999. Dietz was killed in Afghanistan in 2005. The students raised about $13,000 for two nonprofits with ties to Dietz: The Danny Dietz Leadership and Training Foundation is run by Danny Dietz Sr., and the Lone Survivor Foundation is run by Marcus Luttrell, the only

survivor of the attack. “This senior class has really made a strong impact on the local and global community through their fundraising efforts and their community service toward our sister school in Sierra Leone, The Lone Survivor Project and The Danny Dietz Foundation,” said Principal Stacey Rien-

deau. “They have answered the call time and time again to not only excel academically, but to change the lives of others.” Also 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. The Parent-Teacher Organization created the Heritage Legacy Project, encouraging alumni, businesses and the community at large to buy a brick, engraved with their name, to help pave the more welcoming facade and forever be a part of the school.

In return, some students from the Tohoku Institute of Technology in Sendai, Miyagi, visited Littleton High School on March 22. DECA students got to travel as well, to the International Career Development Conference in Anaheim, Calif., to compete against 16,000 of the best

DECA teams in the world. The students qualified for the conference by placing in the top five at the State Leadership Conference in February. Senior Raj Reddy competed in a event called “Entrepreneurship — Growing your business,” where he detailed Omirown, his technology start-up that is developing a new game for iphones and ipads. Oaks said 50 graduates are members of the National Honor Society, 44 are completing the International Baccalaureate Program and many more will have completed advancedplacement courses and college-level coursework at Arapahoe Community College.

With pot legal, here come the laws Legislature wraps up work on package of regulation bills By Vic Vela

vvela@ourcoloradonews.com The state Legislature may have passed rules involving sales and usage of recreational marijuana in Colorado, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t unresolved issues surrounding the newly created industry. Questions loom as to whether voters will support the tax model that legislators put in place to support retail pot regulations, and whether the federal government will intervene. Still, lawmakers believe they did good work creating laws to regulate an industry where every movement is in uncharted territory. “Given the short time frame, I think we’ve done the best job we possibly could,” said Rep. Dan Pabon, D-Denver, a major driver of pot legislation this session. “This was the project I undoubtedly spent the most amount of time on this session, to make sure we got it right.” Pabon was the sponsor of House Bill 1317, which creates regulations for the operation of retail marijuana stores. Retail pot shops are to open beginning Jan. 1, under the supervision of the Department of Revenue. There will be limits as to what retail marijuana stores can and cannot do, as well as how much marijuana consumers are allowed to purchase. Some late-session amendments to the pot legislation would have allowed out-of-state residents to purchase greater amounts of the drug, as well as to permit the existence of marijuana clubs, where people could congregate to use the drug. However, those amendments failed. Sen. Cheri Jahn, D-Wheat Ridge, along with Pabon, was instrumental in crafting the Amendment 64 bills. She opposed those amendments, and said it’s important for the state to go slow in rolling out the new industry.

Marijuana use and sales are illegal under federal law, and the U.S. Attorney’s Office has yet to provide insight as to how it will respond to the new legislation. So, lawmakers like Jahn say they wanted to make sure they put in place regulations that support strong oversight and that also keep the drug away from children. “We have so much to lose if we don’t do this right,” Jahn said. “And because we have so many `I don’t know what I don’t knows,’ I just think we have to move really cautiously.” But regulations surrounding the industry are bound to change, and lawmakers certainly will address many other pot-related issues in the Report coming years. “It’s been 80 years since Prohibition and were still passing alcohol laws today,” said Pabon. “We’ve had 80 years to protect that system. We’ve had six months to implement this one.”

Capitol

Voters to rule on tax

Another key piece of Amendment 64 legislation came in the form of House Bill 1318, which will ask voters to support a 15 percent excise tax, and an initial 10 percent sales tax on retail marijuana. House Republicans unanimously opposed the bill, even though the bill received bipartisan support in the Senate. Rep. Frank McNulty, R-Highlands Ranch, cautioned that if voters do not approve the tax, the money could end up coming out of the state’s general fund. “It was an issue of making sure we were protecting the state,” McNulty said. “We supported suspending retail operations if the tax doesn’t pass. If the tax doesn’t pass ... and if you’re not putting other options in front of voters, everything that state government does is vulnerable.” Fears over what the voters might end up doing in November led to a late-session ef-

IT’S AMAZING WHAT WE’LL DO TO TEST TRANE’S TOUGHNESS. YOU’LL BE EQUALLY IMPRESSED WITH OUR FINANCING OFFER.

fort aimed at a partial repeal of Amendment 64, one that was supported by McNulty. The resolution called for the suspension of retail marijuana sales if the pot taxes are not supported by voters. It would not have affected the decriminalization aspect of Amendment 64, so it still would have been legal to smoke the drug. However, that legislation died almost as quickly as it was introduced in the Senate. Democratic Senate President John Morse teamed up with fellow Colorado Springs Sen. Bill Cadman, the chamber’s minority leader, to introduce the legislation. The resolution passed in a hastily scheduled committee hearing, just three days before the session ended. But it was never brought to the floor of the Senate for consideration. Morse said he “didn’t have the votes” to get the resolution passed. But he said he hoped the crafting of the legislation sent a message to the pro-Amendment 64 lobby, that they need to ensure the tax rate passes in November. Pabon said he didn’t think the partial repeal effort “ever would have gotten out of (a House) committee, let alone to the floor.” “At the end of the day, the voters have already spoken about this issue and they don’t need to take another vote on it,” Pabon said. Gov. John Hickenlooper said he’s confident that Amendment 64 backers will work with lawmakers in making sure that the taxes pass in November, so that the state isn’t stuck with the bill. “I think we’ll all work on it,” the governor said. “I think they’ll commit resources because if it doesn’t pass, their lives will become chaos. And I don’t even want to speculate what the federal government will do. I don’t even want to speculate what the people of Colorado will do. “They can take it nonchalantly at their own risk.”

It also prohibits marijuana from being allowed on school grounds • Sets up law enforcement training that deals with roadside sobriety tests. • Prohibits open containers of marijuana from being inside vehicles. • Creates the same indoor air-quality restrictions as those dealing with tobacco. House Bill 1318: • Retail sales of marijuana are subject to an excise tax of up to 15 percent, and a retail tax of up to 10 percent. That’s in addition to the standard state sales tax rate of 2.9 percent and taxes imposed by local governments where retail pot sales are allowed. Because the General Assembly cannot increase taxes, voters must approve the excise and retail taxes this November. • Cities and counties that allow the sale of retail pot will receive a 15 percent share back of retail marijuana taxes that are collected by the state.

When it comes to energy independence, U.S. Sen. Mark Udall admits there’s no silver bullet. But there is “silver buckshot,” he said. Udall, who was in Centennial on May 10 at the South Metro Chamber, said one of Colorado’s most promising areas of growth will be energy, and not just in fossil fuels. However, according to the second-generation Democratic statesman, in order to seize the opportunities that come with energy, the government must first eliminate economic barriers that hinder new product and job development. For Udall, those barriers are immigration reform and a balanced budget. Although statistics show unemployment is down and housing starts are up, Udall said it’s not enough, and Colorado’s diverse energy landscape may be the key to keeping the economy growing. “Colorado is truly a bal-

anced model for a national energy policy,” Udall said. “Just think about it — we’ve got solar in the San Luis Valley, we’ve got wind towers on the Eastern Slope of the state, we’ve got natural gas and coal and oil on the Western Slope. We’ve got it all and we’re showing the showing the nation — and literally the world — how to achieve energy independence.” An advocate for renewable energy, Udall went on to explain that innovation will play a role in maintaining balance between energy production and the environment. “One success story is a methane capture project in Somerset, Colo.,” said Udall. “And what this project does is take a waste product — which is methane — and turns it into electricity.” The project is a collaboration between Aspen Skiing Co. and Oxbow Mining LLC to explore the untapped potential of coal bed methane. Udall pointed out that methane gas is either burned off or vented away from the mine. “This waste product now powers all of Aspen’s four ski areas, 13 restaurants and three hotels,” he said. “And this is all because members of the private sector

decided to come together and find an innovative jobcreating solution.” But while Udall cites the Oxbow model as an example of success, he also points out that the transition to renewable resources must come gradually. “We will eventually get there,” he said. “When you think about it, fossil fuels are finite.” But in the meantime, Udall said the state shouldMAY 2 continue responsible development of more traditionalHEALT Allianc energy resources. “We in Colorado have aand Do tremendous opportunityArapah to lead the world in oil and“The A natural gas production,” heone of said. “Why?

It’s an exciting feature of our town.” “This is the kind of cooperation that builds community strength,” said David Buck of the Buck Foundation. “We believe in efforts by Littleton’s citizens to improve their community. Decades ago, my mother, Mims, worked with other women to plant annual flowers in Littleton public spaces. My father, Douglas, was an avid gardener and each summer donated part of his extensive harvest to individuals in Littleton. Community involvement has always been a part of our family.” Borger said the donation could not have come at a better time. SSPR had approved a matching grant to plant trees in the parks, but the district’s rules called for bigger ones than the group had planned on, he explained. “With the desire to make a more significant impact, the Crabapple Trail board of directors decided to put more of its own community-based funds into the planting project,” he said. “That decision was made easier because of the Buck Foundation donation.” The Buck Foundation has also supported Bemis Library, the Littleton Immigrant Resources Center and the Douglas H.

opinions / yours and ours

Session over, where do we go now? The Colorado General Assembly’s 2013 session came to a close last week without the extra-innings drama of the previous year. No doubt, much was accomplished over the past four months by the Democrat-controlled Legislature, including approval of some high-profile pieces of legislation. Civil unions? Check. (Unlike last year, there would be no last-minute theatrics over a bill approving these.) Numerous gun-control measures? Check. Overhaul of Colorado’s election rules? Check. Mass frustration by Senate and House Republicans? Check.

our view A statement released by the Colorado Republican Party the day after the session’s end called it “the most divisive and partisan in the state’s history.” We’re not sure where to rank the session on the all-time list, but it certainly was both very divisive and very partisan. It also was very predictable. November’s elections ensured one-party control in Colorado. With a House, Senate and gover-

nor united, little could stand in the way of getting bills passed, controversial or not — a single vote from the other party or not. And while the session was not without some solid examples of bipartisan legislation, Democrats were prolific with their newfound power. “You may not agree with everything we’re doing, but you can’t say we’re not doing anything,” Democratic Rep. Dominick Moreno told Colorado Community Media legislative reporter Vic Vela in April. We’re not using this space to call out the Democratic Party. Republicans likely would also have taken full advantage of such a position. Democrats worked together and accomplished what they felt was right.

Letters to the editor

What advice do you have for the graduates of 2013? Colorado Community Media surveyed four people at the Lone Tree Arts Center this week, among them business-

But one-party control in a state that is about as purple as it gets has us wondering if Colorado’s residents were best served by this past legislative session. On the state’s active voting rolls as of May 1 there were 915,793 Republicans, 875,926 Democrats and 862,050 unaffiliated voters. That’s not far from one-third each. Those figures make it tough to believe that either party’s platform can adequately represent the constituency as a whole. Clearly, consensus is elusive in Colorado, but if nothing else, the 2013 session was a test of the tastes of the hundreds of thousands of unaffiliated voters. Theirs is the critique that will matter most when they speak at the polls in 2014.

man Charles R. Schwab, about the advice they’d give today’s high school and college graduates.

“Develop passion about whatever they want to do in life. Employers want kids that are deeply passionate … That really means serving somebody and loving doing it.” — Charles R. Schwab, Woodside, Calif.

“Go out and fail. Take a chance. Take a risk. That’s when you learn the most. You’ll learn more from your failures than your successes.” — Larry Fullerton, Greenwood Village

“Absolutely follow your passion first. Second, pay attention to your world. We’re all much more connected … Third, always try to do the right thing. Don’t be motivated by power or greed.” — Charlene Sherwood, Denver

“Look to your community and your friends for opportunities. Douglas County is filled with opportunities and growth. Reach out to the types of employers within your area of passion.” — David Gardner, Parker

Stapleton guilty of bait and switch

Colorado State Treasurer Walker Stapleton says, “the state’s public employee retirement program doesn’t have a partisan problem, it has a math problem,” in “State Treasurer cites PERA math problem,” The Independent, May 2. Yet Republican Stapleton said this at a town hall meeting hosted by Republican State Rep. Spencer Swalm. Apparently, Stapleton complained in general about PERA’s “8 percent rate of return” at the meeting, then zeroed in on SB 13-213, “pending legislation that seeks to overhaul how Colorado finances public education.” He said, “PERA reform should be tied to this,” because, as the article states, he suggests “the two are inextricably linked.” He suggests? The article quotes him,

that, “what I don’t want this to be is a bait-and-switch kind of deal.” The only bait-and-switch I read in the article is Republican Stapleton’s “suggesting” these two issues are “inextricably linked.” Kenneth Valero Littleton

Historic house faces inglorious end

Concerning the destruction of Willowcroft house, hopefully since it is the last historic property in Columbine Valley, they will at least maybe recycle the stone that the house is built from to make a grand entrance to the enclave, and maybe even let someone reclaim some of the interior features. But most likely it will all end up in the dump. Rick Brachtenbach Littleton

You can kiss my coffee table Today’s theme is euphemisms. We use them all the time, knowingly or not. “A euphemism is a generally innocuous word or expression used in place of one that may be found offensive or suggest something unpleasant,” says Wikipedia’s entry on the topic. “Some euphemisms are intended to amuse, while others use bland, inoffensive, and often misleading terms for things the user wishes to dissimulate or downplay.” Well, you can kiss my coffee table. I use euphemisms all of the time that are not intended to mask something that is offensive or impolite, as you will see. What is a euphemism for “euphemism”? Beats me. The word comes from the Greek (Don’t they all?), meaning “the use of words of good omen.” How did we get from that to dissimulating unpleasantries? How many of you were given euphemisms as a child? For example, how many of you went to the bathroom to urinate or defecate? My guess: none of you. Parents say the darndest things when it comes to those things. Mine referred to One of One and Two as “dooty,” which phonetically is “duty.” When I heard my teacher say “It is your duty,” I wet my pants. W.C. Fields used to say “Mother of Pearl!” which always sounded like a profanity. He’d yell “Godfrey Daniel” when something went wrong. I’d name my kid Godfrey Daniel. In case you are wondering (I did), there are people named Godfrey Daniel and Godfrey Daniels. I’d like to meet their parents, to find out if it was an intentional choice coming from Fields, or if they were oblivious. Language is where I have fun. It’s where I have the most fun. Don’t take me out to the ball game, although there is always the national anthem, and “Jose, can you see?” The first time I heard the Lord’s Prayer,

I thought, “This is great. They have art classes in heaven.” You know? “Our Father who art in heaven.” Most of the time we speak in predictable patterns, and it makes it very easy to finish someone’s sentences. Unless they are good with euphemisms, then you never know what to expect. “Go jump in a _______, you _______,” is a wide-open opportunity for a wordsmith. There’s something called reverse understatements (litotes). “He’s not very tall,” really means “He’s a shrimp.” Using “challenged” is another way of speaking around an expression. A shrimp, then, is “vertically challenged.” Safer, but not very interesting, is it? Wikipedia again: “Connotations easily change over time. `Idiot,’ `imbecile,’ and `moron’ were once neutral terms for a developmentally delayed adult with the mental age comparable to a toddler, preschooler, and primary school child, respectively.” Now we have “developmentally delayed.” Euphemisms became more and more common and mandatory the longer I taught. Words that I used in the 1970s were unacceptable thirty years later. It got tricky sometimes, because so many words have implications that they didn’t before. Golfers still have handicaps, but no one Smith continues on Page 11

Gavel comes down on 2013 Legislature

On May 8, we ended the 2013 state legislative session. There were bills on some difficult and complicated issues, yet we is also did some significantly positive work. ering In total, we passed 441 bills (including d by repeals). Below are more of my bills this te’s session not yet covered in my columns. re Child protection ats • HB 13-1271, Child Abuse Reporting not Hotline and Training: Colorado ranks 17th highest in the nation for children experive encing abuse and neglect. HB 13-1271 is ately the first step in creating a statewide child abuse reporting hotline system and consisdo, tent training practices to those answering as a calls. By making it easier for people to call, ou- and with better training of hotline workers, this should help prevent child injury and r death. 014. • SB 13-255, Strengthening Child Fatality Reviews: This bill improves the process for analyzing child fatalities to identify potential improvements in protecting children. For the first time, we will have statewide consistent best practices with child fatality reviews in order to prevent

child deaths. • SB 13-278 directs a task force to recommend a definition of a “drug-endangered child” in the context of child abuse or neglect to assist child protection workers, family courts, and mandatory reporters in identifying and reporting situations that would be applicable. Protection of domestic violence and sexual assault victims • HB 13-1259, Civil Protection Orders/ Domestic Orders: This bill elevates safety as a primary concern in domestic relations cases involving children and strengthens the civil protection order process. The safety and well-being of abused children and

parents should be of primary importance in any court. It also adds sexual assault to the definition of domestic violence for civil protection orders. Juvenile justice • HB 13-1254 expands the restorative justice program in Colorado, with the goal of keeping juveniles out of the juvenile justice system. Restorative justice emphasizes repairing the harm to the victim and community caused by criminal acts of juveniles and adults. This bill will increase the use of restorative justice practices, particularly facilitating victim-offender conferences, which are completely voluntary and have shown dramatic reductions in recidivism. Helping small businesses • HB 13-1208 gives more flexibility to the funding of creative districts in Colorado, allowing for small creative businesses to expand. Creative industries make up the fifth-largest employment sector in Colorado and positively affect the local economies and community cultures. Technology and cost savings • HB 13-1079, Joint Technology Com-

Making time for the important things I heard the coolest story the other day so I thought I would share it with you all because I found it to be just so very meaningful and powerful. A very close friend of mine was attending church last Sunday and she shared with me the message that was delivered during the Mass by the deacon of the church. And although I will try and capture the details, it is really the essence of the message I hope I can pass along. The deacon shared that every night at 6 in his home all the cell phones, televisions, and anything that would be considered an intrusion on their time is turned off and that he and his wife just talk for 90 minutes. They make time for each other; more importantly, it is uninterrupted time. I found myself questioning my own approach as I talk a lot about focusing on the important things in life, but this was a tactical approach that I thought I could abide by. As a matter of fact, a year or so ago someone else from the community shared with me that not just at 6 at night, but every Sunday is family time and that their entire family turns off their cell phones on Sunday as they spend time together.

So why am I sharing this with you again now? Good question and thanks for asking. You see, in cleaning out my home recently I found a deck of cards with a score sheet folded under it. It was a score sheet that had a game that was only partially completed. My wife and I used to play cards or backgammon in the evenings and apparently the last time we played, we left the game unfinished, believing we would have time to get back to it one day. That day never came as unfortunately my wife lost her long battle to pancreatic cancer last month. Many of you in the community have been awesome supporters through prayers and well wishes. So I wanted to thank you all for staying with us and for your compassion

during the entire battle. More than that, I wanted to give you all the gift of remembering what is truly important and that is our relationships, whether they are romantic, family, or simply close personal friendships. Do you have a game in your own life that is left halfway finished? A conversation that needs to be completed? A feeling that should be shared or made abundantly clear? Do you regularly make time for those you hold the closest in life? Uninterrupted time, no televisions, no cell phones, or no outside interferences? The good news is that if you are reading this column, you can still make time for the important things in life … each other. Thank you again from my entire family. I am in awe of the community and appreciate you all so very much. I would love to hear all about how you make time for the most important things at gotonorton@gmail.com because when you do, there is no doubt that it will be a better than good week.

Choose carefully during record highs Now that we hit the record highs on several of the stock market indexes, it is time to be choosy about future investments. This reminds me of a famous commercial when I was growing up with the mantra “Choosy mothers chose Jif.” Well, now that markets have more than doubled off their low points, investors can afford to be selective. In the peanut butter analogy, you can afford to buy the best. The real question is how to be selective trying to invest in a market that feels like you are paying too much for anything you consider. Here is a primer our investment committee recommends when working with your adviser. 1. Determine the length of time for your portfolio. If it is longer than a full business cycle of seven to ten years, don’t worry about what point you are buying in. The strategy and allocation is much more important than the timing. 2. Build a strategy based on proper diversification for your time frame and risk budget. This allows you to add a variety of different types of investments, some of which may not be at a high-water mark yet. 3. Seek the best “risk-adjusted” returns for each piece of your portfolio. “This means you want to research additions to your portfolio based on risk first,” says KFS Investment Analyst Greg Richards, CFP. Returns are actually a byproduct of how much volatility you are willing to accept. This can help avoid the short-term high flyers and direct you more towards longterm consistency. 4. Consider what category you are adding more money to and how that category is performing. If you have an opportunity to buy lower in a different sector, consider putting money to work in the undervalued asset class first. Dollar cost average by investing in smaller sums over a period of time to get average pricing over good and bad months. This will lessen some of the

O

Let shi

pain when the market corrects. 5. Resist the urge to only buy the best performers. In fact, you may want to consider trimming those categories by taking some profits off the table in those asset classes and using the proceeds to buy in areas that are not yet overvalued. Richards, who heads up the investment committee, reviews over 20 different metrics before investing. He suggests at a minimum, investors wanting to get into the market at these levels should at least research some basic risk measures. Review downside capture, active share, standard deviation and Sharpe ratio to get a feel for how a manager may perform in various market conditions. The current performance may not be a good indication of how sustainable your returns will be over your time frame.

Officer’s co-workers remember Letter from police group shines light on Denner

Editor’s note: The following was written by the employees of the Littleton Police Officers Association, Fraternal Order of Police #26 Once again the corridors of the Littleton Police Department have been darkened by the unexpected loss of a beloved colleague. Though we have been here before with the losses of Chris Grosz, Bill Black and Kathi Christ, it makes it no easier to comprehend. Our hearts and minds are left wondering why it is that someone so good and so cherished can be taken from us so young. And it has left us with broken hearts once again. The men and women of the Littleton Police Department were shocked into reality with learning of the tragic loss of Officer Kevin Denner. Kevin died doing something that he loved, riding his motorcycle. But that is not the only thing that Kevin loved. He loved his wife Kristin, and his children Kaidin and Kaitlin too, with all his heart. And he also loved the work of being a police officer and the people he had the opportunity to work with. But it was us who were

the fortunate ones. Officer Kevin Denner was our friend. He was the gentlest of souls with the strongest of convictions. He was big and strong, but soft at heart, never having an unkind word to say about anyone. It simply was not in his DNA to be mean-spirited. He lived a life committed to his family. He spoke of them often and dedicated his life to being the best father and husband he could be. Kevin spent the past year on patrol working the graveyard shift. Ironically, Kevin’s work put him in a position to keep the citizens of Littleton safe from drunk drivers. Prior to that, after having spent just a year as a patrol officer, his talent was realized and he made detective. He spent over eight years as a detective, where he became an expert investigator in computer-related crimes. But it was while working graveyards where Kevin showed

his co-workers the kind of man and father he was. Always putting his family first, Kevin would often come home at daybreak after working through the night, and because Kristen, who was a schoolteacher, had early school, he would stay up to get his kids breakfast and off to school before lying down to get some rest. And then he would get up early to pick them up. And he gladly did it to show his love for his family. That is who Kevin Denner was. A good, loyal family man who just happened to be an outstanding police officer. Kevin Denner was a very kind and decent man. Kevin always seemed upbeat and pleasant and had the innate ability to convince most everyone he met that he was their friend. He was very large as cops go, standing about 6-foot-7. He was intimidating in stature, but far from threatening. He was affectionately known by all of us as “Big ’n.” Kevin was the kind of police officer who provided a great deal of comfort to any officer he was covering on a call. With Big ’n there, one didn’t have to worry too much about things getting out of hand. One glance at this mountain of a police officer

left suspects with very little incentive to be uncooperative. As one glances at the heartbroken faces of our fellow Littleton Police employees, it is not difficult to understand their grief. Because they too came to know a kind and decent man who always had time for a friendly word or to share a funny anecdote. It is people like Kevin Denner who set the bar of civility high and left the rest of us struggling to measure up. So, as often is the case when one loses someone they love so unexpectedly, we are left to ponder; if only we had told him how much he meant to us; if only we had showed him what an impact he had on us as human beings; if only we shared with him what an influence he had on our lives. If only … We hope for Kevin’s sake we did. So we say farewell, not just to Littleton Police Officer Kevin Denner, but to Kevin our friend, our inspiration, our cherished and beloved colleague and to the person who simply by having known him, had the ability to inspire us all to do, and be, better. We will not let him down. Kevin Denner, the man, represented the best in all of us and we will miss him terribly.

dent and eor in uescall Continued from Page 1 Any kills them like (Englewood police officer) aJeremy Bitner, I am going to try to find a te way to be involved in that case,” Brauchler ct told the Independent. “I think that the men ted. and women in blue deserve to have the ectly; weight of this office come to defend them

on these things. I wish I could be on every single vehicular homicide. I wish I could be on every case where someone was hurt by a drunk driver. But if I have to draw the line somewhere, it’s going to be when one of the people that protects us is killed by criminal conduct.” The hearing ended just as Denner’s memorial service was beginning at Mission Hills Church. Police say Denner was off duty and rid-

ing his personal motorcycle at the intersection of Belleview Avenue and DeGaulle Street in Aurora on May 6 when he crashed into the Toyota that Dawed was driving. “We believe the driver of the Toyota caused the accident by failing to yield the right of way when making a left turn,” Aurora police said in a statement on the day of the collision. Al-Haqq responded to questions from the Littleton Independent in an email.

“Mr. Dawed is remorseful and sad about the accident and the pain the victim’s family is obviously suffering,” wrote Al-Haqq. “Mr. Dawed did not leave his home with the intention of having an accident. The accident was unforeseeable, and it deeply grieves Mr. Dawed that it happened. Mr. Dawed extends his prayers and concern to the grieving family of the accident victim.” Dawed is set to be formally charged on May 24.

mark Denner leaves on the world is his family, and he asked the Littleton Police Department to literally and figuratively stand behind them. “This is the only payment I can offer for you sharing Kevin with us,” he said.

Family friend David Phelps said Denner’s dedication to the department was clear. “He really wanted to serve,” he said. “He had no agenda. He was just a really solid guy.” Following the service, a huge contingent of police vehicles escorted the funeral procession to Littleton Cemetery, where Denner was laid to rest. “Our prayers are with you as you move into your future,” said Pastor Rick Derbyshire.

Colorado’s Civil Union Act took effect May 1, making same-sex unions legal. But while Scott Strong, left, and his partner T.J. Sullivan, of suburban Aurora, say the new law is a step in the right direction, they prefer to wait for total marriage equality, not just at the state level, but at the federal level, as well.

For Scott Strong and T.J. Sullivan, their relationship is already very real. And while some samesex couples rushed to usher in Colorado’s Civil Union Act with midnight ceremonies, the self-described “40-somethings” went quietly about their lives in suburban Aurora. “First of all, that kind of stuff is just way past our bedtime,” joked Sullivan. “And while we don’t want to take away from civil unions’ awesomeness, it’s just not something for us.” Although the new state law treats civil union partners, in nearly all respects, like married people, parties to a civil union are still denied many rights afforded by those in heterosexual marriages. For that reason, Strong and Sullivan have taken a firm stance to wait for full marriage equality at the federal level. “For example, simple things like filing a joint income tax return or receiving certain Social Security benefits are still denied,” Strong said. “And then, there’s other things, like portability — a civil union here in our state doesn’t necessarily mean anything in another.” Sullivan went on to say that while civil unions are a step in the right direction; they are “not exactly the golden ring” that many same-sex couples seek. Civil unions are more a political compromise, according to Strong, pacifying those who were not ready

marriages, still have to be explained.’ T.J. Sullivan for same-sex couples to marry. “It’s kind of a whole messy situation,” Sullivan added. “Civil unions, unlike marriages, still have to be explained.” He said federal laws still codify him and Strong as second-class, and that until those laws are repealed, civil unions do nothing to change it. Sullivan was referring 1996 Defense of Marriage Act, a federal law being weighed by the nation’s Supreme Court. DOMA, as it is known, restricts federal marriage benefits and interstate marriage recognition to those in opposite-sex marriages. “For us, if DOMA falls, that is the greater prize,” said Sullivan, who says it will be nice when the government catches up “with our real lives.” So until then, Strong and Sullivan will wait. “In some ways I have to applaud the state, but it doesn’t feel right to celebrate just yet,” Sullivan said. “It’s like celebrating a victory when we’re only twothirds of the way through the race. We’ve still got a third of the way to go.”

REAL ESTATE AGENT SPOTLIGHT OF THE WEEK What do you most enjoy doing when you’re not working? Matt Kuchar, GRI, CDPE, FIS How long have you worked in Real Estate? I started selling Manufactured Homes to retirees in I enjoy fixing up and improving my house. Sounds weird Realtor®

Orlando Florida back in 1990. In 2000, I began my real estate career at Century 21 in Fort Myers until I opened my own brokerage in 2002.

303-710-3810 matt@calldenverhome.com www.CallDenverHome.com

What is your specialty and what does that mean for the people you work with? I specialize in listing and selling residential homes and condominiums. A specific skill set is needed to assist seller in preparing their homes for sale and presenting them in a way that maximizes their return.

Where were you born? I was born in Saginaw, Michigan How long have you lived in the area? My family and I moved to Colorado from Ft. Myers Florida in June of 2006

What is the most challenging part of what you do? The most challenging part of real estate comes when dealing with multiple offer scenarios from both the selling and buying side of a transaction. There may be many that want the property but only one person is going to get it. The other interested parties are going to be disappointed.

What do you like most about it? I love the laid back attitude of the people in Colorado. The mountains are fantastic and weather constantly changes. However, the way people here take the time to enjoy life and spend time outdoors and with one another is a source of constant encouragement.

but I get a lot of satisfaction from that.

What is one tip you have for someone looking to sell a house? Hire an agent that is familiar with the area that you live in and has a good success rate in that area – listen to their advice. What is one tip you have for someone looking to buy a house? Get all of your financial matters in order with the mortgage company prior to looking at homes. What is the most unusual thing you’ve encountered while working in Real Estate? Most recently, I showed a home with a room in the basement that had several locks on the door and fluorescent lights coming from underneath the door. I don’t think they were preparing tomatoes for spring planting.

Y

ou have just signed a contract to make the largest purchase that you probably will ever make in your lifetime - a home. Not only is it wise to understand the details of the purchase contract, but it is also important to understand potential problems you may be facing in the home itself. That is what home inspections are all about. Theoretically, you can inspect a home yourself. However, when you purchase a home, the average buyer looks for reasons to buy it and not for problems the home might have. That is why an unbiased home inspector, who will cost you somewhere between $250-$500 depending on the size of the home, is almost mandatory in any home purchse. In Colorado, home inspectors

do naot have any licensing requirements. Most home inspectors enroll in a course that teaches them what to look for. However, because there is no state test in Colorado, an inspector who graduates from an authorized course can begin inspecting homes right away. Therefore, you should always inquire how many homes the inspector that you are planning to hire has inspected so that you are not getting a rookie. It is also important to know that most contracts required by home inspectors in Colorado limit their liability in the event they fail to disclose serious defects. That means if the inspector fails to notice a serious mold condition that may require up to several thousand dollars worth of remediation, the most you can expect to collect against him in a suit is the amount that you paid him for the inspection. The main things the inspector will look for in reviewing the condition of the home is the heating system, plumbing, electrical system, and central air conditioning system, as well as the roof, attic, visible insulation, walls, ceilings, floors, windows, doors, foundation, basement, landscaping and visible structure. Most inspectors will also offer you additional services such as radon testing, water testing and termite in-

spection, all at an extra but minimal charge. The standard Colorado real estate purchase contract allows a buyer to require the seller to remedy unsatisfactory conditions, adjust the purchase price or terminate the contract. In fact, the inspection clause allows the buyer a complete escape from the purchase contract for any reason or no reason at all. It is one of several escape clauses in the contract that sellers should be aware of when taking their homes off the market. If a buyer is acting in good faith, he will provide for an early inspection in the contract so that he can exercise the clause early if need be to allow the seller to put the house back on the market. A seller should be wary of buyers who leave the inspection too far down the road, especially in the high selling season. Responsible real estate brokers representing buyers will call for an early inspection so that their buyer can get an early estimate of what corrections, if any, the home needs. In any case, a home inspection is a must for a buyer and is even a good idea for an individual that is not selling his or her home to just get an independent opinion if there are any issues in the home that need immediate correction. n

Museum shares powerful photos

Littleton sculptor Kim Kaminsky polishes a Wagon Wheel sculpture, commissioned by the Littleton Fine Arts Board. Courtesy photos

Sculptures installed on Main Street Bike racks funded by donations from tours By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com Walk, bicycle or drive along Main Street in downtown Littleton, and you can see 12 “Wagon Wheels” and 12 “Mountains and Peaks.” Created of steel and bronze, they are new sculptures designed to serve as bike racks, commissioned by Littleton’s Fine Arts Board and bolted in place on May 4. Funds for the works came through a donation from John Brackney and Brian Vogt — proceeds from the “Haunted Littleton” walking tours the two conducted each Halloween season for a number of years. They have wanted to donate to a downtown Littleton project. The Littleton Fine Art Board posted a call to artists on Café, an online program used to advertise calls for artists and entry forms to shows. Several responses included those from Kim Kaminsky of Littleton and Montrose artist Caleb Kullman, who were present May 4 to unveil sample pieces at the west end of Main Street. Kullman’s is in front of Bradford Auto Body and Kaminsky’s is at the newly finished Market Place across the street. Both are fabricated in a kind of steel that will weather well to a rust-colored patina. Others are on both sides of Main Street. Polished bronze relief plates are in the center of each Wagon Wheel. They have one of two images: “Littleton Today” shows a festive Western Welcome Week on Main Street, with the old Carnegie Library (Melting Pot). “Littleton Past,” with an agricultural motif, includes wheat, fields, train tracks and the old depot. The wheels were cast in sand molds, then cleaned, polished and welded together. The bronze plates were hand-sculpted and cast in bronze, using the lost wax process, then attached to the wheels, which are bolted to the concrete. Kaminsky, who lives in Littleton with her husband and two daughters, grew up in Chicago and started her interest in art early. She has a BFA in art from Creighton University in Omaha, Neb., and an MFA from Pennsylvania Academy of the Arts. The family moved to Littleton in 2008, where she was able to build a light, airy studio in her back yard — a place to work and to hold children’s art classes.

History Colorado kicks off a summer of exploration of local and national military history at the History Colorado Center, 1200 Broadway, with the opening of “The American Soldier: A Photographic Tribute” on May 25, continuing through Sept. 2. This national traveling exhibition features 116 enlarged photographs that capture images of American soldiers, beginning on the Civil War battlefields in 1861 when the new medium of photography first documented the grim realities of war, to the war in Iraq. “Spanning nine wars, I’ve often wondered what the exhibition photographs have in common,” said exhibition curator Cyma Rubin. “These photographs have power. They have an ability to reach people ... each image has a life of its own.” For complete information, go to www. historycolorado.org.

Drew crew

Comedy Works South at the Landmark has landed a big fish: Television personality/actor Drew Carey will perform there on June 21 and 22. Show times are at 7:15 and 9:45 p.m. both days. Ticket prices are $26 per person. Advance tickets are available at 720-2746800 or www.comedyworks.com.

Makes cents

Montrose artist Caleb Kullman presents his “Mountains and Peaks” sculpture on May 4.

Caleb Kullman graduated from Reed College in Oregon with a degree in anthropology, where he was first exposed to blacksmithing. He says he learned to think independently at Reed and have confidence in his ability to teach himself new things. He next learned the craft of farriery — horseshoeing — in Tucumcari, N.M., and began a practice, which paid living expenses while he increased his skill with iron. In New Mexico, he attended Frank Turley’s basic blacksmithing class in Santa Fe and visited the studio of Tom Joyce, where he saw beautifully crafted iron pieces. A Fulbright scholarship in 2002 led him to study with Yoruba blacksmiths in Nige-

ria for eight months, followed by classes at Penland School of Crafts and Haystack School of Crafts. In 2006, he moved to Montrose, where he has a downtown studio with three forging stations, modern fabricating equipment and machine tools. He says he uses traditional techniques to create pieces for today’s architecture. Fine Arts Board members are appointed by the Littleton City Council and are volunteers. Members are Jerry Clapsaddle, Jim Dickson, Kathleen Eckel, Kelly Strohman, Sarah Trujillo, Val Watson and Chairwoman Denise Weed. They represent all four council districts.

Quarters for Kids, the annual event founded by Tammy and the late Noel Cunningham, will continue holding its annual fundraising campaign despite the recent closure of Strings restaurant. Viewhouse Eatery, Bar & Rooftop, a new venture for Lotus Concepts at 2015 Market St., has stepped into the Cunninghams’ sizable shoes to acknowledge the fundraising efforts and honor the children with a private breakfast on May 10. Quarters for Kids is a school-based program where students raise quarters to help provide breakfast for residents at the Volunteers of America Brandon Center for Battered and Homeless Women and their children. Denver Mayor Michael Hancock will recognize the efforts of area students, KOSI-101 radio personality Murphy Huston will emcee the event and Denver Nuggets mascot Rocky will entertain the students. According to VOA legend, 22 years ago Noel discovered — after talking to VOA’s Jim White — that the cost to feed breakfast to a child living in one of Denver’s home shelters was 25 cents. The idea that such a small amount of change could make such a difference motivated Noel to start the Quarters for Kids campaign. While this year’s campaign ended in April, schools and students can plan to participate next April. For more information, go to www.voacolorado.org.

Hands-on outdoor experience awaits kids Cal-Wood outing set for East Elementary students

How to donate A “cleanup day” at Littleton’s East Elementary School will help students earn money for the trip to Cal-Wood Education Center. Community organizations have adopted this school in the past and individuals may also be interested in donating. Checks can be sent to East Elementary School, with a note in the memo line that it is a Cal-Wood donation. East is at 5933 S. Fairfield St., Littleton, CO 80120.

By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com On August 13, just before the next school year begins, a big bus will arrive at East Elementary School in Littleton, ready to carry excited fifth-grade students away for four days and three nights at Cal-Wood Education Center, in Jamestown, outside of Boulder. The 1,200-acre outdoor classroom includes forests, many species of wildlife and plants, nine miles of trails, meadows, peaks, ponds, streams, a waterfall, a 1901 homestead, an American Indian tipi, once-active mines, camping areas, cabins and a lodge. Each child will have a new backpack filled with supplies, a Nalgene water bottle and “the coolest T-shirt ever,” according to their teacher, Nicolette Vander Veld, who with her teammate Chris Moore will accompany their young charges. This is the sixth year that East’s fifth-graders have gone on the trip, so many are anticipating especially eagerly because a sibling has had the experience. Recently, the teachers received a welcome visit from members of the Breakfast Optimists Club of Littleton, which has taken a special interest in the school, where some students are still mastering English and many qualify for a free lunch. BOCL

East Elementary fifth-graders will learn what kinds of animals have been at Cal-Wood Education Center before them as they pursue STEM skills. Courtesy photo members combined a grant from Allstate Insurance, which member Tom Scavuzzo arranged, with proceeds from a bowling day and a donation from the club treasury for a total of $2,300 towards the Cal-Wood trip. Vander Velde said she was “surprised and so very thankful.” “For many students, this will be their first trip away from home,” Vander Velde said. She and Moore have especially designed the program with Cal-Wood staff to

meet their students’ needs. The organization works with one school at a time as they explore the learning center for an immersion experience in environmental education, which fits the STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) objectives. A typical day at Cal-Wood might include scheduled times for waking up, showering and packing for the day; breakfast and cleanup; Field Day, guided by CalWood staff (lunch is carried along); “Body

on Bunk” (reading journaling, sleeping); “Down Time, “supervised by school and parent support personnel; dinner and cleanup; evening program guided by CalWood staff; getting ready for bed; and lights out. A detailed teachers guide spells out the program for teachers and support staff. Team building is an important part of each day as well, and instructors are trained in “sheltered instruction,” Vander Velde said. “It’s a methodology for instruction that allows all students to develop academic vocabulary and deep understanding of concepts presented, even when they are learning English as a second language.” (This student body speaks many different languages at home.) “One of the best parts is the first week back at school! The teachers and students know each other very well after spending time together for a week. And, they all miss the incredible food from Cal-Wood!” Vander Velde concludes.

Progenitor delivers writing, art Air Supply to ACC publication has theme of fire, regrowth By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcolorado news.com Pro-gen-i-tor: 1. A person or thing from which a person, animal, or plant is descended or originates; an ancestor or parent. 2. A person who originates an artistic, political, or intellectual movement. Definitions and a bit of history fill the front page of Arapahoe Community College’s Art and Literary Journal, Progenitor 2013, which was presented on April 30 at an event in the Colorado Gallery of the Arts. The name is from the school motto, “Progenitories Sumas” — “We are the ancestors.” It refers to responsibility to coming generations. An award winner in college media, produced every spring since 1967, the handsome current volume’s cover is “Fired Sun,” a photo by writer/photographer Stacia Duvall, depicting a contorted skeleton of a tree against a blood-red sunset. It was taken in Littleton on the night the Lower North Fork Fire began, Duvall said. Stories, essays and poetry range from whimsical to dark and include winners in

The cover for the 2013 Progenitor is in keeping with the theme of fire and renewal. The photograph, “Fired Son,” is by Stacia Duval. Courtesy photo the 2012 ACC Literary Contest, submitted by writers throughout the state. The art includes winners in the ACC Fine Art Juried Competition. (The 2013 Literary Contest winners were just announced. See the Writer’s Studio website.)

The staff for the journal, the Literary Magazine Production class, overseen by Writers Studio director Kathryn Winograd, included Editor Joshua P. Sullivan; Assistant Editor Holly Huner, Arts and Photography Editor Jason Colbourne; Poetry

Editor Lydia Farrar; Fiction Editor Kathryn Peterson; Non-Fiction Editor Juanita Pope; Creative Director Mollie Rue; Studio ACC’s Brian Wright and staff member Josh Olson. Adviser in addition to Winograd was John Hall, Multimedia and Graphic Design faculty at ACC. The staff’s statement about assembling the journal refers to a theme of fire and re-growth, which follows last year’s investigation of water. The staff interviewed Dr. Tony Cheng, forestry professor at Colorado State University, where they talked of regrowth after fires and formed parallel thinking about Progenitor contributors. “Each contributor displays a strong fiery ambition, fueling personal growth in the natural cycle of being an artist … fires of life can jolt artists into digging deeper into themselves and their life experiences, releasing the energy stockpiled and sometimes locked up in psyche, heart and mind …” says a summary statement. Writers explore a fear of flying, cancer, fighting sisters, teen and Harlem dancers, a long-running town feud and a poetic response to early flight theories of Bartolomeu de Gusmao, plus other trains of thought It is available at ACC and online: www.arapahoe.edu/ progenitor-online/2013/.

play in Parker Australian singers’ show at PACE Center likely to sell out By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcolorado news.com Air Supply — Australians Graham Russell and Russell Hitchcock — will play a May 30 date at Parker’s PACE Center to what will likely be a soldout crowd. (A few tickets remained when we spoke with center director Elaine Mariner last week.) Area audiences have especially responded to musical programs in a variety of styles since the PACE Center opened, she said. Other sell-outs Mariner listed include The Vienna Boys Choir in November 2011, soon after the venue opened; and the Parker Symphony Orchestra/ Parker Chorale Holiday Shows in 2011 and 2012. A New Year’s Eve celebration sold out in October. In 2012, Celtic Nights, Natalie McMaster, Stunt Dogs, “Fiddler on the Roof,” Colorado Symphony Orchestra’s Drums of the World, the John Denver tribute and “A Christmas Carol” were also sell-outs.

Russell and Hitchcock met when both were in a production of “Jesus Christ Superstar” in Sydney. After the shows, they would perform together in coffee houses and nightclubs, singing Graham Russell’s original songs. With their smooth harmonies, they eventually landed a recording contract and had a No. 1 single on national charts. Russell writes songs and plays guitar, paired with Hitchcock’s tenor voice. Their song “Lost in Love” connected them with Clive Davis, a music industry executive who signed them to Arista Records. “Lost in Love” became the world’s fastest-selling single and they followed it with ”All Out of Love.” Top-selling albums followed and the pair has toured the world for many years since, sometime with other band mates. Their newest release, “Air Supply Live,” was recorded in Israel and is available at Air Supply shows and online. In 2011, they were still performing 150 shows a year. Air Supply performs at 7:30 p.m. May 30. Tickets, on sale since late January, cost $45, $55 and $65. Visit PACEcenteronline.org or call 303-805-6600.

Creek girls again claim crown Bruins capture 17th consecutive 5A tennis title By Tom Munds

tmunds@ourcoloradonews.com Cherry Creek again successfully defended it Class 5A girls tennis championship, defeating Fossil Ridge 67-46 for the team title. It marks the 17th year in a row the Bruins have won the state crown. The standings were closer going into the finals with three head-to-head BruinsSabercats battles at No. 1, 2 and 3 doubles. Cherry Creek’s No. 1 doubles team of Madeleine Bernstein and Julie Berlinger and the No. 2 doubles team of Morgan Cohen and Mia Hoover won their matches, plus Gloria Son won the No. 2 singles title to ice the Bruins’ bid to retain the state team championship. Cherry Creek also strengthened its hold on first place as the No. 3 doubles team finished second, the No 3 singles player finished third and the No. 4 doubles team finished fourth. After winning her finals match, 7-5, 6-1, Son was relaxing but took time to talk about her victory. “Today was amazing and winning state was the greatest feeling ever,” Son said about her play in the finals. “I was very nervous early when I saw all the people watching our finals match and I fell behind 5-3 in the first set. I told my coach I was determined to win this match. I got it together, focused mentally and physically so I was able to win in straight sets.” The freshman was undefeated in 5A competition this season. She said she has been playing tennis since she was about 6. She also said she feels one of her strengths is playing an aggressive style and coming to the net. Tennis is her only sport, but she said the coach works with her on conditioning so she will have the stamina to play her best even in a tough, three-set match. Cherry Creek’s girls tennis program has accurately been called amazing, winning 17 straight state team championships. Coach Chris Jacob said depth is a major strength of the team.

Arapahoe High School’s Callie Nicoulin returns a shot as she and doubles partner Lauren Myers play in the Class 5A state tennis tournament. They won the No. 4 doubles state championship. “We had 161 girls come out for tennis this season,” she said. “We have six coaches on the staff and we try to have things organized so every girl is on the court four or five days a week.” A tennis team is made up of three singles players and four doubles teams. The coach said a big part of the program is vying for spots on the rosters of the Bruins’ two varsity and three junior varsity teams. “The system allows anyone to challenge for a spot on one of our teams,” Jacob said. “Of course, computers help a lot keeping track of all the competition. We also have a seeding ladder and encourage players to challenge players above them on the ladder because our goal is to have every player on the court in a match against another team, a challenge match or at practice four or five times a week.” She said there are a lot of strong teams so she knew state would be tough. “There was no team that dominated the field this season,” she said. “It seemed every team had good players on the roster, so we knew it would be challenging to success-

fully defend our state title again.” Jacob said tennis is the primary and, in most cases, the only sport most of the members of the Bruins girls team play. “We are fortunate we have three very nice indoor tennis facilities nearby so most of the girls on our team can play tennis all year,” the coach said. “We have five seniors on this year’s team, so we’ll have a good group coming back to help us next season.” Two other schools in the area, Arapahoe and Heritage, had some success at the state tournament. Arapahoe High School finished fifth as the team of Callie Nicoulin and Lauren Meyers won the No. 4 doubles state championship, and teammate Tate Schroeder lost a tough three-set match to finish fourth

at No. 1 singles. The Heritage team had its best season in several years as the Eagles’ No. 2 doubles team of Amy Farmer and Ginny Hancock took third and the No. 4 doubles team of Erin Myles and Caroline McLeod finished fourth. “This has been a pretty good season for our team,” Eagles coach Kristy Brethauer said. “We had all our players qualify for state for the first time in a while, plus we had some girls place at state.” She said the team should be pretty good next year as they only have four seniors on varsity. She added the team was young as far as experience was concerned because several players were new to varsity competition.

Bruins advance in Class 5A baseball playoffs Creek bests Castle View and Ralston Valley in district play By Tom Munds

tmunds@ourcoloradonews.com Cherry Creek won both ends of the May 11 district doubleheader, edging Castle View 6-3 and besting Ralston Valley 13-0 to advance to the next level of the state Class 5A playoffs. Districts ended the season for both Castle View and Ralston Valley. Cherry Creek moves on the first round of the state playoffs May 17 against Grandview. Before the May 11 games, Bruins coach Marc Johnson said he was concerned about the district playoffs. Cherry Creek faced Castle View in the first game. The Sabercats came into the playoffs with an 8-11 record while the Bruins were 17-2. “We are healthy but records don’t mean a lot in the playoffs and we play the games because anything can happen,” he said. “Districts are challenging because one bad game and you go home.” Shawn Wyss, Castle View coach, sent

Castle View’s Trevor Smeeton unsuccessfully attempts to avoid the tag of Cherry Creek second baseman Ryan Robb. The Sabercats battled hard but lost 6-3 in the first round of the state Class 5A playoffs. Photo by Tom Munds senior pitcher Alex Atwood to the mound. Atwood threw well early and the game was tied 1-1 going into the home half of the

fourth inning. However, the Bruins got the bats going and pushed five runs across the plate. Cas-

tle View tried to get a rally going in the sixth and scored twice but never got any closer. Ben Dalke had a solo homer while teammates Tony Favilla and Tyler Solis each drove in a run. Ralston Valley won its opener over Fort Collins 4-0 and faced the Bruins in the district finals. Cherry Creek broke the scoreless tie in the bottom of the second and put the game out of reach with 11 runs in the bottom of the third inning. The scoring outbreak included a home run by Derik Beaupres. Dyllin Mucha and Jax Griffin each had two-run doubles. Griffin was on the mound for Cherry Creek. He struck out four and gave up only four hits in five scoreless innings. He also helped his own cause as he had a home run, a double and led the team in RBIs with four. The senior said he based all his pitches off his fastball. “Today, as long as I got my fastball in the zone for strikes, I could throw other pitches to fool the hitters,” he said after the season. “That was my fifth home run and it helped strengthen my confidence as we go to state.”

Man ready to face ‘death’ head on Extreme racer taking on toughest challenge yet By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@ourcoloradonews.com To Barclay Williamson, it makes perfect sense to pay $600 to travel halfway across the country to be physically brutalized and psychologically tortured for up to 72 hours with no sleep in something called a “Death Race” — and there isn’t even a prize if you win. “It’s just something to really test your soul,” said the 23-yearold Littleton resident. Indeed. “This is the ultimate challenge,” reads the event’s website. “The Death Race is designed to present you with the totally unexpected, and the totally insane.” Williamson will face mud runs, obstacle courses, trail racing, physical challenges and mental challenges in this endurance race, which starts at 5 a.m. on June 21 in a forest in Pittsfield, Vt. Organizers brag that 90 percent of participants fail. “Please only consider this adventure-style race if you have lived a full life to date,” they warn. Competitors might have to

PROFESSIONAL

chop wood for two hours, carry a 20-pound stump around for an hour, chop an entire bushel of onions or, after 20 hours of racing, memorize a Bible verse, hike to the top of a mountain and recite it back word for word. Williamson reached out to the Littleton Independent to get out of a particularly awful challenge — lifting boulders weighing 30 to 50 pounds until they total 30,000 pounds, which takes about nine hours. Racers are excused if they can snag a news article about them. (Most reporters probably think giving away a little free publicity is fine if they get to write about something called a “death race” and can rescue somebody from what could be a near-death experience at the same time.) The cross-fit trainer says he’s not doing anything too out of the ordinary to prepare, as he already spends most of his time at the gym or at Metropolitan State University of Denver, where he’s majoring in exercise science. “I’ll have to constantly remind myself that it’s all a game, and lies and deception is a part of it,” he said. “My temper can boil over, so I just have to keep my wits about me.” This won’t be the first time Wil-

liamson has endured intensity. He was going through Navy SEAL training when he tore a ligament in his knee. “I feel like I’m kind of racing for redemption,” he said. He’d wanted to be in the military since he was a kid, when he really started getting into fitness. “I do value my appearance,” he said. “I was really heavyset when I was 11. I constantly ate, and I had a massive belly. I got picked on a lot in sixth through eighth grade, and one day it just clicked that I didn’t want to get picked on anymore.” So he took up wrestling and changed his diet to eat “paleo,” trading grains for lots of meat and veggies, getting into fighting shape one step at a time. He says he’ll approach the Death Race the same way. “You just cherish each of those little segments that you’ve gone through and progressed through,” he said. “And this is kind of a darker view, but you feed off the people who quit, knowing you made it farther than they did. … It’s all just about one thing at a time. The quickest way to fail is to think about the next thing you have to do.”

Barclay Williamson is training to test his strength and endurance to the extreme next month in the Spartan Challenge Death Race. Courtesy photo

Background and Relationship of the Applicants and Applicants’ Prior Decrees and Pending Cases. 2.1. Background. On December 15, 2009, ACWWA, United, and ECCV entered into an Intergovernmental Agreement (“IGA”) to provide for ACWWA’s participation with ECCV and United in an integrated system for the diversion, accretion, collection, storage, transmission, and treatment of their water rights. The integrated system, which is also referred to as the Water Supply Project or the Northern Project, is designed to provide ECCV and ACWWA with a long-term, sustainable municipal water supply for their respective service areas located in Arapahoe and Douglas Counties, Colorado. Maps of ACWWA’s and ECCV’s service areas are attached as Exhibit 1 and Exhibit 2, respectively. Pursuant to the IGA, United will provide ACWWA with 4,400 acre-feet of con-


ECCV and United in an integrated system for the diversion, accretion, collection, storage, transmission, and treatment of their water rights. The integrated system, which is also referred to as the Water Supply Project or the Northern Project, is designed to provide ECCV and ACWWA with a long-term, sustainable municipal water supply for their respective service areas located in Arapahoe and Douglas Counties, Colorado. Maps of ACWWA’s and ECCV’s service areas are attached as Exhibit 1 and Exhibit 2, respectively. Pursuant to the IGA, United will provide ACWWA with 4,400 acre-feet of consumptive use water that will be delivered through ECCV’s water delivery facilities for use within ACWWA’s service area. 2.2. Decreed Components of the Water Supply Project. The Water Court has previously decreed various components of the Water Supply Project for ECCV and United’s use: 2.2.1. In Case No. 02CW403, the Water Court approved a plan for augmentation (“ECCV Augmentation Plan”) for ECCV’s Upper Beebe Draw wellfield (“ECCV Well Field”), as described in paragraph 15.1 of that decree. The ECCV Augmentation Plan allowed for the addition of wells to the augmentation plan and for the use of additional sources of substitute supply to replace the out-ofpriority depletions resulting from pumping the ECCV Well Field. 2.2.2. In Case Nos. 02CW404 and 03CW442, the Water Court approved the addition of six (6) wells to the ECCV Well Field, additional sources of replacement water to the ECCV Augmentation Plan approved in Case No. 02CW403, and a recharge project in the Beebe Draw (the “Beebe Draw Recharge Project”). The Water Court also approved a plan for augmentation to replace the outof-priority depletions created by the pumping of wells located on 70 Ranch (“70 Ranch Augmentation Plan”) and a recharge project on 70 Ranch (“70 Ranch Recharge Project”). 2.3. Pending Water Court Cases to Integrate ACWWA into the Water Supply Project. There are several pending water court cases to decree various components of the Water Supply Project, which, under the IGA, will be utilized by ACWWA. 2.3.1. Case No. 10CW306. The pending application in Case No. 10CW306 seeks to adjudicate and confirm ACWWA’s participation in the following components of the Water Supply Project: the ECCV Augmentation Plan, the 70 Ranch Augmentation Plan, the Beebe Draw Recharge Project, and the 70 Ranch Recharge Project. The application in Case No. 10CW306 has been amended to conform to the decree entered in Case Nos. 02CW404 and 03CW442. 2.3.2. Consolidated Case Nos. 11CW285, 09CW283, and 07CW335. ACWWA and United are Co-Applicants in pending Case No. 09CW283 in which they claim appropriative rights of substitution and exchange to assure delivery of water available to ACWWA to the ECCV Well Field for delivery to the ACWWA service area as contemplated in the IGA. United and ECCV are Co-Applicants in pending Case No. 11CW285 in which they claim appropriative rights of exchange for a stream reach below the Fort Morgan Canal headgate to the exchange reach previously decreed in Case No. 02CW404 and 03CW442, and an exchange reach from the confluence of the South Platte and St. Vrain Rivers up to United’s St. Vrain Diversion claimed in Case No. 07CW335, to assure delivery of water to the ECCV Well Field for delivery to ECCV’s service area. Case Nos. 09CW283 and 11CW285 have been consolidated with Case No. 07CW335 for all pre-trial and trial purposes. 2.3.3. Consolidated Case Nos. 10CW312 and 11CW280. ACWWA and United are Co-Applicants in pending Case No. 10CW312 in which ACWWA is seeking a 500 acre-foot conditional water storage right in United Reservoir No. 3. ECCV is an Applicant in pending Case No. 11CW280 in which ECCV is seeking conditional water storage rights in United Reservoir No. 3, Barr Lake, and Gilcrest Reservoir as well as an appropriative right of exchange. Case No. 10CW312 was consolidated with 11CW280 for all pre-trial and trial purposes. 2.4. The purpose of this application is to change the use of the decreed water rights associated with shares in the Cache la Poudre Reservoir Company and the New Cache la Poudre Irrigating Company (collectively “Subject Water Rights”) that were acquired by Applicants for use as a source of substitute supply for the ECCV Augmentation Plan decreed in Case No. 02CW403, Beebe Draw Recharge Project, 70 Ranch Augmentation Plan, 70 Ranch Recharge Project, and the South Platte River Exchanges adjudicated in Case Nos. 02CW404 and 03CW442. In addition, the subject water rights will be used as a source of substitute supply for the exchanges claimed in consolidated Case Nos. 07CW335, 09CW283, and 11CW285, as source of substitute supply for the plans for augmentation and recharge projects claimed in Case No. 10CW306, and for storage in United Reservoir No. 3, Gilcrest Reservoir, and Barr Lake. 3.

Art students create a healing mandala on the sidewalk near the Littleton High School Theater on May 8. Mandalas are a type of spiritual and ritual symbol typically found in Hinduism and Buddhism, representing the universe. They express themes of life and loss, harmony, earth and balance, growth and rebirth, as well as community and individuality. The project was part of Mary Rosenberg’s visual art class and was the idea of LHS graduate Brenda Cleary. Students designed this mandala to symbolize how individuals and communities recover from loss. Photo by Deborah Grigsby
