Chief Doug Stephens says he’s ready to lead the Littleton Police Department to a fresh start filled with unique opportunities, and he intends to promote an atmosphere of recognition and appreciation. “My motivation and my goal is to give them more ownership of their fate and how we operate,” he said, both sworn officers and civilian employees. City Manager Michael Penny says he’s excited to have Stephens on board. “He is going to be able to bring a new perspective Stephens to the department,” said Penny. “His approach to law enforcement and leadership is just what this department needs to re-energize and focus on the future to meet the needs of the Littleton community.” Stephens, 45, has a wide swath of experience in law enforcement. Raised in Cheyenne, he graduated from the University of Wyoming with a degree in criminal justice. He earned his master’s degree from the University of Colorado at Boulder and successfully completed the FBI National Academy, Session 231, in 2007. He started in the Denver Police Department in 1991, where he stayed until taking the helm in Littleton on May 20. Stephens continues on Page 12

Northeast Littleton neighbors urged to unite City officials see route to better days ahead By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@ourcoloradonews.com City officials are urging residents of Littleton’s northeast neighborhood to band together to ward off crime and other problems there. “You guys are the eyes and the ears of the neighborhood,” said Mark Barons, the city’s neighborhood resources coordinator. “I would encourage you to talk about organizing.” About a dozen neighbors attended a meeting May 23 at Little-

ton Center to discuss the situation, which came to a head last October in the form of a fatal shootout that teens in the neighborhood said was the result of warring gangs. “I can’t wait to get out of this neighborhood, sadly,” said one young mom who witnessed the alleged perpetrators running across her lawn. She said random acts of violence are one thing, but it’s a much bigger problem when violence becomes a part of a neighborhood’s culture. Littleton Police Officer Bryan Lynch said the area has calmed down quite a bit since the shooting. Many of the troublemakers have moved, she said, and three of them are in jail since the incident,

which left 18-year-old Da Von Flores dead in the street. Lynch noted that National Night Out will be back this year after falling victim to budget cuts last year. She urged the neighbors to participate by holding a block party. “It’s making a show of neighborhood solidarity, and showing criminals you’re not cowering in your houses,” she said. Police Cmdr. Sean Dugan urged people to call police whenever they see something even a little suspicious. Sometimes people are afraid police will identify them to the suspect, or they just don’t want to “bother” the officers. NeiNeighbors continues on Page 12

Graduation isn’t just matter of degrees A week ago, Ana Elfring, 18, graduated from high school. The event wasn’t particularly emotional — she was ready to move on, the diploma the required bridge to a university education and her future. Two weeks ago, T.J. Sweetin’s grandfather solemnly handed him a folded American flag that had flown over the state Capitol; his parents proudly pinned the rank of second lieutenant onto his dress blue uniform. A college degree in hand and four years of ROTC behind him, the 21-year-old was, officially, finally, a Marine. Around the same time, Ellen Theis exuberantly accepted her English degree, six years after beginning it — and more than 30 years after her first literature class — on the day before her 52nd birthday. “I would call it a milestone,” Theis said, “and a dream come true.” The school year’s end marks one of life’s milestones, the ritual of graduation, an acknowledgment of accomplishment, a rite of passage from one point in life to another, wrapped in assorted ribbons of meaning. Educational achievements aren’t the only milestones that become defining pieces of our stories. There are first drivers’ licenses, first jobs, 25th wedding anniversaries and 50th birthdays. They seem to impart needed stamps of approval on life’s timeline. Interestingly, studies show countries with well-established cultural rites of passage — “very distinct before and afters” — tend to have lower crime rates in young adulthood, said Kim Gorgens, an assistant professor of psychology at University of Denver. Just as compelling, added Gorgens, is the mind’s ability to hold onto noteworthy memories about ourselves. “We have this natural tendency to be storytellers,” she said. “The autobiographical episodic memory is particularly

resistant to decay. … As we are losing our capacity to define ourselves, the last thing to go is our recall for significant events. It has a natural buoyancy.” Perhaps that’s because they can be among our happiest times. For Ana Elfring, these moments are more a series of steppingstones than milestones. Her 4-foot-11 slight frame belies a fierce strength. Determined to gather the resources needed to get herself to University of Colorado at Boulder, she navigated the financial aid maze on her own, securing several scholarships and a work-study grant. “It makes me feel really accomplished,” Elfring says of her successful effort to pay for college. “It’s like a weight off my shoulders.” She is most excited about the independence to choose what her day will look like, from what she eats to when she studies to what she does for fun. She plans to study biology and considers that graduation from college will, perhaps, mean more than her high school steppingstone. “I like to live more in the present than looking forward to something,” Elfring says. “But just because I’m not as goaloriented doesn’t mean that I don’t strive to succeed. It’s just that I don’t look at things as ‘Well, at this point I should have achieved this much.’ I just kind of do my

best as I’m going and see where it takes me. And, so far, I’ve been taken to pretty decent places. I’m going to the school I want to go to. I have friends and I have a job. So I’m pretty happy.” Thomas Joseph Sweetin is a tall, adventurous young man called T.J. after his namesake, his great-grandfather. His father’s job with the Drug Enforcement Administration moved the family around the country and instilled a love for change and excitement of the unknown. He likes to look forward and mark the big moments. Earning an international affairs degree from CU was definitely more meaningful than receiving a high school diploma for Sweetin. “College was different because I put so much work into it,” he says of days that involved not only academic studies but also hours of training and community service for the 100 students in ROTC. But the greater milestone, he says, is being commissioned into the Marines. “So many of my friends were upperclassmen, and we saw them graduate and get deployed, and you’re counting down the days to that,” Sweetin says. “When you’re a freshman, it feels so far off. You’re kind of waiting … for that day. The entire culmination of that whole college career is summed up in the one commissioning day.” In October, Sweetin heads to Quantico, Va., for six months of basic officer training. The next benchmark, he says, will be deployment. “It feels really good,” he says. “Life — it’s exciting. I’ve been ready for a while to get on with it.” On a recent Sunday morning, at the athletic field of Metropolitan State University of Denver, Ellen Theis hurled her dark blue cap into the air in exultation. A wife and mother who describes herself as a “why not?” person, she had always felt “less than” without a college degree.

The achievement filled her to brimming. “When it really hit was when I picked up my cap and gown,” she says. “It was very surreal. It was joyous. … I was struck wordless by the profound feeling of satisfaction and deep pride in myself.” The journey had been long and circuitous. After high school, without encouragement or financial resources for higher education, Theis worked odd jobs and became a hairdresser. Children and family then became priorities. But hovering in the back of her mind, always, was a yearning for school: “I wanted to learn about James Joyce and Shakespeare, and I wanted always to know more.” Over the years, through four colleges and three states, she took a course here and there. At 46, when she saw friends pursuing degrees, she decided she could do it, too. She started with one course a semester and kept adding until she was juggling four at once. And on graduation day, she proudly hung a blue-and-gold cum laude cord around her neck. She briefly considered not attending commencement. Then she realized if she walked away, the moment might be lost. “It’s much sweeter,” Theis said, “when it’s not handed easily to you.” She needed to mark this passage well. So her dad and stepmother flew in from California. Her husband and daughters, 15 and 13, bore witness, too. After, she felt complete. “My ideal self,” Theis said, “has a degree.” And so ends this season of milestones.

Warriors leave impressive legacy Photos by Deborah GriGsby

Graduates toss mortarboards into the air during Arapahoe High School’s 48th annual commencement exercises, held May 23 at Littleton Public Schools Stadium.

Arapahoe High School seniors left Littleton Public Schools Stadium with not only their diplomas, but with an impressive list of accomplishments. Principal Natalie Pramenko said the Warriors Class of 2013 garnered a record number of scholarships, “around $21 million.” The outgoing class of Warriors also gave back to the community through several charitable projects. Arapahoe High School enjoys a special relationship with the Northern Arapaho tribe from the Wind River Indian Reservation in Wyoming. The relationship promotes awareness of the coexistence of two very diverse cultures. Northern Arapaho Tribal Elder Mark Soldier Wolf and his family were in attendance at the school’s 48th annual commencement exercises on May 23.

Driver allegedly drunk in crash with officer Defendant makes return to court By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@ourcoloradonews.com Prosecutors say the man charged with causing the death of Littleton Police Officer Kevin Denner had a blood-alcohol content of more than .08 percent when his vehicle allegedly collided with Denner’s motorcycle. Under Colorado law, that would mean Jemal Abdelkader Dawed was driving under the influence of alcohol. Because of that, Aurora police were in court May 24 to revoke his driver’s license,

though they issued him a temporary one. Dawed’s attorney says his client has worked as a driver at Denver International Airport for the last six years. Dawed is free on $50,000 bond, although the pros- Dawed ecution has tried twice to get the amount raised to $100,000. “The people are concerned about the defendant’s return to court based on his lack of community ties, and based on the gravity of the offense,” prosecutor Brittany Martin told Judge Richard Jausch. She said the only family confirmed to

be living here is one brother; the rest of his relatives apparently are in Africa. “Bond is not to be punitive,” countered Dawed’s attorney, Wazir-Ali Muhammad Al-Haqq. He said his client has conformed to every condition the court has placed on him, including wearing a GPS tracking device and turning his passport over to his bondsman. “There are at least 12 people here today to stand for Mr. Dawed because of his importance and his reputation within the Ethiopian community here in Colorado,” Al-Haqq said. The judge declined to raise the bond from $50,000, the standard amount for the offenses he’s charged with. Dawed is charged with vehicular homi-

cide, driving while under the influence of alcohol, careless driving and failure to yield the right of way. He was not injured in the crash. Police say Denner was riding 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. Jausch set Aug. 8 as the date for Dawed’s preliminary hearing. District Attorney George Brauchler is personally prosecuting the case.

What new laws mean for gun owners Presentation on rules, trusts set for June 5 By Ryan Boldrey

rboldrey@ourcoloradonews.com With Colorado’s new gun laws set to go into effect July 1, there are steps that owners of high-capacity magazines and select guns can take to protect their assets. While all those who own any of the soonto-be-outlawed guns and magazines prior to July 1 will fall under a grandfather clause and be allowed to continue to possess anything that was obtained before that date, there will be an issue of transferring those items to anyone else or willing them to a family member in the future. In order to keep those guns and magazines in the family and not be required to turn them in when the owner dies, Krystal Woodbury, shareholder with The Law Center in Highlands Ranch, said people need to set up a trust prior to July 1. If an owner does not have guns in a trust, they are associated with that person’s Social Security number, she said. A trust, however, places the firearms under a tax ID number, which allows for legal transfer to the benefi-

With new gun laws about to go into effect July 1, there’s a lot current gun owners need to be made aware of. File photo ciaries named in the trust. “The laws are very specific, but very vague at the same time,” Woodbury said. “After July 1, it is a violation of the law to sell, transfer or accept a large-capacity magazine. So whoever the owner is on July 1 is

the owner forever. When they die they can’t be transferred in state, they can’t be sold, and they can’t be possessed. The owner has to be the owner forever here in Colorado.” Unless, that is, the owner sets up a trust. Those named in the trust, as long as they

are allowed to legally possess a firearm, may then receive the firearms. Depending on how the trust is set up, those named may also be allowed to use the firearms prior to the death of the owner of the trust. “You can be as specific or as general as you want when setting it up,” Woodbury said, adding that a family security trust that names decedents as beneficiaries is valid for 1,000 years in Colorado. “You must make sure the beneficiaries can legally possess a firearm, however, and perform a background check on each of them. The beneficiary also has to certify that they have not been convicted of a felony.” Woodbury will be making a public presentation on what the new gun laws mean for those who own firearms from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. June 5 at the Highlands Ranch Chamber of Commerce, 300 W. Plaza Drive, Suite 225, in Highlands Ranch. She will address revocable and irrevocable trusts as well as the benefits and drawbacks of each, as well as talk in depth about each of the new laws. The presentation is free, but an RSVP is required by calling 303-791-3500 or by visiting the chamber’s page on www.meetup. com.

Sweeping revision of school finance signed into law Fate of measure will be in hands of voters By Vic Vela

vvela@ourcoloradonews.com Colorado public schools are a step closer to a major funding overhaul after Gov. John Hickenlooper on May 21 signed a new school finance act that proponents say would provide a long-overdue modernization of an antiquated school funding formula for classrooms across the state. But the governor’s signature doesn’t make the reform measure a done deal. Voters must give the go-ahead to the legisla-

tion’s price tag of about $1 billion in new taxes, something that Republican lawmakers are sure to rally against in the fall. If a vote falls short this November, the proposal could come back for funding votes Hickenlooper through 2017. Hickenlooper, who was flanked at the Capitol billsigning by legislative co-sponsors of Senate Bill 213, dubbed the “Future School Finance Act,” hailed the legislation as a way to “allow Colorado to vault to the top of every state” when it comes to school financing and transparency.

‘This bill really positions Colorado to be the national leader in terms of school reform, in terms of school effectiveness.’ Gov. John Hickenlooper “This bill really positions Colorado to be the national leader in terms of school reform, in terms of school effectiveness,” Hickenlooper said. The legislation would mark the most sweeping change to the state’s school finance formula that’s been seen in decades. The act would fund full-day kindergarten, provide preschool for at-risk children and would increase needs-based programs for special education students and children who are learning English. The legislation also would provide more funding for students who are involved in gifted and talented school programs. The bill would give school districts greater flexibility in being allowed the opportunity to have longer school years and school days, if they choose to do so. The bill also is expected to increase per-pupil funding for most school districts across the state by way of a funding system that supporters say is a more equitable way of divvying up money. Under the new formula, the state would determine how much revenue individual school districts are able to raise, with the state backfilling the difference. The state also would provide more support for local mill levy-matching. And, the bill would create a new teacher evaluation formula that supporters say is badly needed. Sen. Mike Johnston, D-Denver, was the main driver behind the legislative effort. The former Thornton High School principal

said the bill marks a “tremendous step forward” in making Colorado a school reform model for the nation. “Instead of forcing (students and teachers) to work in a system that was created before the Internet, email and cell phones ... they instead will work in a system that is built for the 21st century,” Johnston said. But Johnston’s efforts could be all for naught if voters do not approve funding, which would come in the form of some sort of tax increase. Rep. Millie Hamner, D-Dillon, a bill sponsor, acknowledged that “the biggest challenge” will be in convincing voters to provide funding for the measure. Backers of the act don’t yet know what the tax measure will look like on the fall ballot. Hickenlooper would not say which tax measure he preferred, but did say that he “certainly” will campaign for the effort. The governor shouldn’t expect many Republican lawmakers to join him on the campaign trail. Republicans during the legislative session denounced the reform measure as a bloated effort that would lead to greater bureaucracy and doesn’t do enough to put in place necessary school reform measures. They also say the bill is nothing more than a $1 billion tax increase on the people of Colorado. The new school finance model would not take effect until the 2015-2016 school year. The 2013-2014 school funding model came in a separate piece of legislation.

Realtor helps handle a house divided Rogliano recognized for work with women getting divorced By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@ourcoloradonews.com Joan Rogliano considers women like herself to be metaphorical wildflowers. “We’re survivors, and we bloom where we’re planted,” said Rogliano, a Littletonbased real-estate agent. “And we’re all different sizes and shapes and ages.” About 15 years ago, Rogliano found herself in the middle of a “very conflicted” divorce. Fortunately, her career had prepared her to deal with what would happen to the house. Unfortunately, she says, not all women are so lucky. “They were getting bad information and being bullied into selling when they didn’t want to sell,” she said. “Honestly, that made me really mad.”

So three years ago she started Wildflower Women’s Foundation in Centennnial to provide scholarships, legal advice and financial advocacy to women going through divorce or who have been widowed. It grew out of informal workshops that were growing ever more popular. “I just kept getting these arrows that this was bigger than I could support by myself,” she said. So she got a bunch of corporate grants and a board made up of people who could and wanted to help. “Divorce takes a team,” she said. “But we’re all working together for the person who is going through this. None of us can do this alone.” That work is paying off. Realtor magazine and the Good Neighbor Society recently named Rogliano one of just five “Volunteering Works” recipients in the country. The program matches Realtors who work on small-scale charitable efforts with mentors and awards them grant money. Win-

ners are selected based on their dedication to the community and the potential for their charitable work to be expanded or improved. Rogliano’s mentor is 2003 Good Neighbor Claudia Deprez of Illustrated Properties Real Estate in West Palm Beach, Fla. They’ll work together to increase the foundation’s visibility and build a stronger network of professionals to support women. “Our goal is to take it national,” she said, as the need is expanding, particularly given the numbers of divorcing baby boomers. “It’s usually the women who are filing, and their needs are really different,” she said. “The kids are gone, and they thought they’d be retiring soon and that there were all these assets, and then they find out there are no assets because they weren’t paying attention.” Rogliano says older women often don’t

want to keep the house because they don’t want the maintenance hassles or they’d simply rather have the money. Younger women with children, however, usually want the continuity and stability of their own neighborhood. Often they think — or they’re told — that they won’t be able to afford the payments or qualify to refinance. Rogliano says their renewed confidence once they realize they can is amazing to see. “The women really bloom and go on to do some really terrific things,” she said. Although the foundation has helped as many as 100 women in a month, Rogliano estimates it’s only reaching about 5 percent of the women it could help locally. “We know they’re out there, and if they’d just apply for money, we have it sitting in the bank,” she said.

Beloved Joe Guennel left big mark in area Scientist was driving force in Colorado soccer By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com Littleton’s beloved Joe Guennel, who died May 13, touched the lives of thousands of soccer-playing boys and girls — and their parents — over half a century, while also conducting serious scientific research. After he retired, he wrote and illustrated two handsome volumes on Colorado’s wildflowers. In 1961, Guennel came to work at Marathon Oil Co. as a palynologist (a scientist who studies spores and pollen). In addition to building an international reputation in science, with more than 30 papers published, he became known as the “Father of Colorado Soccer” and had involvements in the sport across the nation. He worked with the U.S. Olympic Committee for 12 years. Born in Oelsnitz, Germany, Guennel moved to the United States with his family in 1934 at the age of 13. In high school, he lettered in football, basketball and baseball. He received bachelor’s and master’s degrees in botany from Butler University in Indiana, served in the Army Reserve, then served in the the U.S. Army from 1943-45 in Germany, France and Austria. He returned to Germany as a civilian employee, where he met and married Hilde Lang in 1947. She died before he did. Guennel worked for the Indiana Geological Survey and received his Ph.D. from Indiana University, where he started a soccer program that now is at the top nationwide, according to former Marathon colleague and fellow soccer enthusiast Hossein Kazemi. When Guennel joined Marathon in Littleton in 1961, he met John Meyer, a Dutch man who advocated a junior soccer program for the area and was eager to start it, although he had not played as a child. Meyer was transferred out of state in two years, but Guennel was hooked. Kazemi, now a Castle Rock resident and faculty member at Colorado School of Mines, said Guennel recruited him when he joined Marathon as a 30-year-old scientist — and Kazemi is still coaching more than 40 years later. Kazemi estimates that there may be as many as 70,000 boys and girls playing soccer in the Colorado Youth Soccer Association. “He had a tremendous amount of influence — I can’t say enough about it,” Kazemi said. When Guennel started his organization, he had to do it all: lining up fields, ordering

‘He had a tremendous amount of influence — I can’t say enough about it.’ Hossein Kazemi balls from the east, coaching, officiating, fundraising, holding clinics and more. He also encouraged European teams to play in Denver so families could watch the pros. Initially, he was not allowed to pound goalposts into the ground in Denver, since the sport was so little respected and authorities did not want to damage the grass. Guennel convinced school boards to include the sport — the Centennial League accepted it as a varsity sport in 1968 and the Colorado High School Activities Association sanctioned it in 1971. Guennel later found time to help programs start in Ohio, Montana, Massachusetts, Oklahoma and Texas, according to the Colorado Sports Hall of Fame website about him. Intercollegiate teams and two semi-pro teams are now on the scene in Colorado. Guennel was elected to three different Halls of Fame: Colorado Sports Hall of Fame, Colorado Soccer Hall of Fame and U.S. Soccer Hall of Fame. When Guennel retired, he intensified his study of the flora of Colorado — painting, photographing collecting and cataloging slides and specimens. He wrote and illustrated a user-friendly two-volume “Guide to Colorado Wildflowers,” with watercolor paintings and photographs of each variety. Many local friends enjoyed mountain hiking with this energetic man. Guennel married Inge Holmgren on April 19, 2010, and continued to live in Littleton, still visiting soccer games when possible. He gained a stepdaughter, Janine Holmgren, with whom he established a warm connection, as he told her about German heritage. Inge said her husband also taught a number of local kids to ski in earlier days, including a young Bill McKinnell Jr., who said Joe and Hilde were like a second set of parents to him. They recall trips to the mountains in Guennel’s Volkswagen, almost choking on the smoke from his oftenpresent cigar. Burial was at Fort Logan Cemetery, and friends gathered to share stories about Joe Guennel, although there was no formal service, in keeping with his wishes.

Donkeys rescued after being dumped 20 animals abandoned on national grassland Staff report The Colorado Humane Society & SPCA assisted the Otero County Sheriff’s Office and the U.S. Forest Service to gather approximately 20 donkeys that were abandoned on the Comanche National Grassland by their owner. With the help of several agencies, the donkeys were gathered and CHS transported them to the Dumb Friends League Harmony Equine Center near Franktown. “First and foremost, the forest service and our agents wish to thank the Picket Wire Canyonlands permittees for their help in resolving the situation,” said Katrina Schou, chief investigator for the Colorado Humane Society. “No matter the circumstance, there is no excuse for abandoning and neglecting

these animals. Owners need to find alternative placement for these animals if they cannot be cared for any longer.” The donkeys’ owner, a Crowley County man, will face charges of animal abandonment, in addition to federal charges for dumping the animals on public land. “As more and more donkeys are abandoned or neglected, an added burden is placed on shelters and rescues across Colorado,” said Duane Adams, director of the Colorado Humane Society. “Now, more than ever, we are encouraging people who can afford the cost of care to look at adopting donkeys.” For donkey-specific adoption information or for general information about the current state of donkeys in Colorado, contact Kathy Dean, CEO of Longhopes Donkey Shelter, at 303-644-5930.

opinions / yours and ours

Longtime friendship blurs the decades “You two look like you’re up to no good tonight,” the attractive stranger said. She was about 15 years too late. Mike and I weren’t exactly looking for trouble. We were looking for a box of candies in a grocery store on Quebec. I had given Mike a box of Mike and Ike with the “Ike” scratched out, and he thought I had scratched it out myself. I wanted to prove to him that they weren’t my scratches. The candy’s parent company, Just Born, had the brilliant idea to spend $15 million in 2012 on an ad campaign designed to boost sales. Just Born had spent $125,000 on adverting in 2011. Big difference. The plan was to revive sales by splitting up Mike and Ike, and then re-unite them (which Just Born did in 2013). Did it work? You tell me. I have never had a Mike candy or an Ike candy in my life. But I have a Mike friend. He flew into Denver recently to select a painting from my inventory, as a gift. He didn’t know that he was going to be asked to perform an illegitimate marriage. That story is saved for another day. I met Mike the friend in 1960 in southwest Ohio, where we both attended the

same high school. I had just arrived from Southern California. Orange County, Calif., and Hamilton County, Ohio, in 1960. Big difference. One was sunshine and more sunshine. One was overcast and more overcast. I became overcast myself, until I met Mike, who lived just up the block. We were inseparable, until his father was transferred to northern California, after our junior year. His departure was a very sad day for me. Our friendship since then has had a few gaps, and at one time we were down to exchanging Christmas cards. You know that a friendship is in disrepair when it gets down

to nothing but Christmas cards. Then Mike’s first wife was run over by a bus in New York City. Mike’s wife thought her death meant something sideways, that Mike and I needed to revive our friendship. Thank you, Connie. Since then we have been back and forth, Colorado to California, and California to Colorado. It’s not been often enough, but when it happens, it’s perfect. Mike was a very respected San Francisco architect and I was, well, a difficult college professor, so we come together as a bright, intelligent, articulate team. However, we thrive on foolishness, and sophomoric behavior. It’s 1962-63 again. Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “A friend is a person with whom I may be sincere. Before him, I may think aloud.” I know what he has done, the good and the otherwise, and he knows what I have done, for the past 53 years. I am always startled by the similarities: each of us has hit a few doubles and triples, experienced love, and missed the off ramp now and then. In 1967 we went to a concert at Melodyland, which had a revolving stage, in

Orange County, Calif. Two up-and-coming acts performed. First, Simon and Garfunkel. They were followed by The Mamas & The Papas. Not bad. As the stage revolved, I could hear Garfunkel’s mint clicking in his mouth. At that time, Simon was good friends with Garfunkel, just like Mike and me. Then things went off, and they split up, and both of them have had good careers apart. Eventually they gathered up and called each other. I watched them sing “The Boxer” on Letterman on July 2, 2011. Garfunkel’s hair was still haywire. “God, that was nice,” Letterman said afterwards. After Mike left us yesterday morning, to return his rental car at the airport, I said to Jennifer, “God, that was nice.” The attractive stranger could have been a mentalist and said, “You two look like old friends. Memories have brushed the same years.” Craig Marshall Smith is an artist, educator and Highlands Ranch resident. He can be reached at craigmarshallsmith@comcast. net

preparedness kit? In light of recent man-made and natural disasters, Colorado Community Media visited locations in Englewood and

Littleton to ask people if they had put together a disaster preparedness kit in their homes.

“No, I have don’t have a kit but I have everything I need in my house in case of a disaster. I don’t plan to put a kit together because I just don’t worry about a disaster hitting our area.” — Dana Murphree, Englewood

“I do not have a kit put together but I feel I have all I need to be well prepared at my home. However, I think having everything together is probably a pretty good idea.” — Marissa Gettman, Englewood firefighter

“I do not have a disaster preparedness kit. … I guess it would be a good idea to have those things gathered up in one location if some sort of disaster hit so it might be a good idea to put a kit together.” — Kathleen Gibson, Littleton

“I don’t think we have a disaster preparedness kit in our house although we have everything they recommend to have in a kit there. It probably would be a good idea to have all those things … in one place.” — Carl Coulson, Centennial

Reprieve for killer of four is a case of justice denied I am incredibly disappointed with Gov. John Hickenlooper’s executive order to stay the execution of Nathan Dunlap. With a looming execution date set for this August, the governor was left with few options regarding Dunlap’s fate. He could have signed the warrant allowing the execution to move forward or he could have commuted Dunlap’s sentence to life without the possibility of parole. He chose neither. Instead he granted a temporary reprieve, meaning Dunlap will likely remain on death row for the duration of Hickenlooper’s administration. It’s a non-decision that leaves Dunlap’s fate, and the pursuit of justice by victims’ families, up to the next administration. The governor’s lack of leadership results in the worst possible option for the victims’ families, the integrity of our legal system, and the citizens of Colorado who have decided more than once that the death penalty is an appropriate sentencing option in our state. Though it has been almost 20 years since this horrible crime was committed, we cannot allow our memory of the victims and the grieving families that Dunlap’s brutal crimes left behind to fade.

I was living the dream and didn’t even know it. The main reasons that I was missing it were because I had not identified my dream and I did not understand the process to fulfill it if I had known what it was. A couple of stories illustrate my dilemma. In the first chapter of my book, “Welcome to the Big Leagues — Every Man’s Journey to Significance,” the main character was playing in the big leagues on, arguably, the best baseball team to ever take the field. With Cincinnati’s Big Red Machine, Darrel Chaney played in four National League championship series and three World Series, including the classic sevengame, 1975 World Series with the Boston Red Sox. But he was living with the nagging frustration that his dream was unfulfilled because he was the utility player among superstars. Joseph is a key figure in rescuing and establishing God’s people during their difficult days in the captivity of Egypt. The Bible narrative reveals that God put the dream in the boy Joseph but refined and focused the dream during the painful maturing process that included rejection, slavery, injustice and more rejection before the dream came true. During the decades of pain, I doubt Joseph would have said,

Justice delayed is justice denied. While I understand the choice to sign or not sign Dunlap’s death warrant was one of the most difficult and personal decisions Hickenlooper will make during his time in office, a decision that provides closure to the victims’ families would have been the right thing to do. To shirk his responsibility and duty as governor demonstrates a lack of courage, a lack of respect for the victims, and a total disregard for our judicial system and the 12 jurors who convicted the Aurora mass murderer. When Dunlap brutally murdered 50-year-old Margaret Kohlberg, 19-yearold Sylvia Crowell, 17-year-old Ben Grant

“I’m living the dream,” even though his dream really was coming true. During this era of terrorism, a difficult economy plus relational and family chaos, it seems to me that many are giving up on the idea of a dream let alone the hope of it being fulfilled and the satisfaction of living in the process. When I was a boy, I remember wanting to be somebody who mattered — someone whose life made an impact on those around him. I was clueless what that meant but as I lived I tried to find it in many of the normal ways, usually ending up in disappointment. I like sports, but I was not a great athlete. I have a college degree but academics were a struggle for me. I went into ministry, but never had a large church. God has always provided for me

All of us have our personal graduations First of all, I would like to congratulate everyone who has recently graduated from any level of education as well as all of the family members and friends who supported you along the way. You did a fantastic job, and each and every one of you should be very proud of yourselves. I could include the typical quotes by Dr. Seuss, Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King Jr., Mark Twain or Walt Disney about the places you can go, the things that you can accomplish, pursuing your dreams and living with an abundance of creativity and imagination as you prepare for whatever it is that you have graduated to. But since most of you that graduated or attended a graduation ceremony have heard your fair share of quotes for the week, I will not quote these gentlemen again. Graduation isn’t just for the students; at some point in life we all graduate to some

but most of my life has been on the ragged financial edge. Now, with the perspective that almost six decades of living provides, I am beginning to see that my struggles have cultivated strength, my interests have provided ideas, my relationships have nurtured empathy and my financial needs have deepened faith and a known dependency on God. All of that adds up to more skills and opportunities for me to serve others where my life really matters. Joseph’s dream came true when he interpreted and helped Pharaoh’s dream come true. God’s people were saved from starvation and became a great nation. After a pregame conversation with the wise baseball manager, Sparky Anderson, Darrel discovered that his good work as a utility player helped the team be all everyone dreamed it could be. His job was to “be ready when the game came to him.” He was, and the Reds won that incredible World Series in 1975.

higher level in our career, a skill, a talent, or even in a relationship. Technically, I guess that does make us all students, doesn’t it? We are constantly learning and a student of life. As we prepare to graduate or advance in any endeavor, it takes time, commitment, and a desire to actually want to advance or achieve that next level. There is a quote that I would like to share with you. I have

shared it before in previous columns, but it is so relevant and so powerful I wanted to share it again. Eric Hoffer says it this way, “In a time of drastic change it is the learners who inherit the future. The learned usually find themselves equipped to live in a world that no longer exists.” We have to constantly be willing to learn. How about you, are you taking your fitness to a higher level? Maybe you are advancing your ability in learning to play an instrument. Perhaps you are studying a second, maybe even a third language. I know many of you who read this column are studying the Bible and looking to further your understanding of God’s word. And maybe there are some of us who are graduating to new heights in our ability to communicate and build deeper relationships.

Many times, as a hospice chaplain, I have stood at the bedside of a loved one who just passed from this life into the next and heard the family share the immeasurable impact of that life on theirs. Things as simple as the memory of a mom singing while she fixed pancakes, a dad taking his daughters on dates to teach them how a man should treat them or the importance as the presence of a spouse who simply was there to endure the trials and share the joys were all important actions that influenced lives and left a lasting legacy of what life is all about and how it should be lived. I wonder if the person felt that their life mattered, knew their impact changed the world and realized that they were living the dream. When the churches of our town teach the story of Joseph and help people understand God’s strategy of love to make every life matter, we can all believe in our dream, welcome the process and dream even greater dreams.

and 17-year-old Colleen O’Connor, and callously shot Bobby Stevens in the head, a nightmare began for their families that continues to this day. For 20 years, these families have waited for justice to be delivered. Now, Hickelooper’s failure to make a decision will ensure their nightmare continues, at least through the end of his time in office. If the governor had decided to commute Dunlap’s sentence to life without the possibility of parole, I would have disagreed with the decision but I could have respected it. At least then the families would have had some sort of resolution to their nightmare. But it is completely unfair to say to the victims, who have doubted for nearly 20 years that justice

You see we really never stop learning and never stop attempting to graduate or advance to a higher level. My sister-inlaw recently visited Colorado and had not actually cooked a full meal in over 27 years. But with a little coaching and support, she cooked an incredible dinner and I believe has now graduated to a new level in her ability as a chef. OK, maybe “chef” is a little too strong, but she did an amazing job. Where are you going? What are you pursuing? What do you want to advance in your life? I would love to hear all about it at gotonorton@gmail.com and when we pursue graduating at anything in this life, it will certainly be a better than good week. Michael Norton, a resident of Highlands Ranch, is the former president of the Zig Ziglar organization and CEO and founder of www.candogo.com would prevail, that they will have to wait even longer for finality in this horrible ordeal. We expect our leaders to make tough decisions when the circumstance calls for it. We may not always agree with the decision a leader makes, but we expect it to be made. Hickenlooper’s refusal to make a decision regarding the fate of Nathan Dunlap is a failure in leadership that ignores the citizens who decided capital punishment is an appropriate sentencing option, that marginalizes the judicial system that got us to this point, and — most importantly — that delays justice for the victims and families of this horrible crime.

Planting completed in Songbird Garden Program is connected to nationwide initiative

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com A nationwide Save the Songbirds initiative is designed to save a million songbirds by creating 50,000 acres of habitat for them across the country. Hudson Gardens in Littleton is a participant. The program was made possible by a grant from Scotts Songbird Selections, a division of Scott’s Miracle Grow, plus contributions from the Audubon Society of Greater Denver, Front Range Birding Company and the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District. In fall 2012, space was set aside for a Songbird Garden in the northwest quarter of Hudson Gardens — past the amphitheater. Trees were planted, or existing ones were incorporated, and feeders and nest boxes were installed. A planting plan, chosen for food and cover, was published looking ahead to spring 2013, when select perennials would be added. Scientists specializing in botany and ornithology approved plant and feeder choices and future plans for appropriate plantings. On May 21, Hudson Gardens volunteers planted perennials to fill in the prepared beds. The garden will be visible from the Monet water gardens as well as the edge of the amphitheater and will offer information that encourages individuals to make home gardens into wildlife sanctuaries. A

Basic tips for a backyard bird habitat include: • Choose plants for function rather than appearance.

• Plant trees and shrubs that offer heavy fruit production. (Birds especially like red and blue-colored berries.) • Skip the grass and substitute birdfriendly plants. • Layer your landscape to emulate a natural environment.

• Don’t deadhead. Let plants set seed to serve as food. • Leaf litter is good. Place piles of raked plant material under trees and shrubs to provide cover and insects. • Go organic. Use non-chemical management methods to tame pests and diseases when possible. Herbicides and pesticides can be ingested by birds if they feed on affected insects or plants. Plant material in Hudson Gardens’ Songbird Garden includes sunset hyssop, redosier dogwood, hedge cotoneaster, Russian Hawthorne, blanket flower, dotted gayfeather, Arnold’s red honeysuckle, tall Oregon grape holly, Oregon grape holly, bee balm, beardlip penstemon, Austrian pine, narrowleaf cottonwood, Mexican coneflower, golden currant, little bluestem grass and Indian grass. The Gardens also offer monthly Bird Walks, classes on many aspects of gardening and seasonal special gardens. A mentorship program in beekeeping provides opportunities to learn this popular activity. For information on dates and fees, see hudsongardens.org/programs. Nearby is Joshua Weiner’s recently installed steel sculpture of a giant, all-inclusive nest — an appropriate companion piece.

Activist hopes music ‘Duck Dynasty’ rocks The Rock Academy Robertson pair to raise will bring harmony helps $60,000 for school Woman tries to find home for community piano By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@ourcoloradonews.com Betty Harris wants her fellow Littletonites to make beautiful music together amid all the recent controversy, but she just needs a place to make it happen. Harris has long been an active Democrat and recently became involved with Citizens for Rational Development, a local activist group fighting high-density development throughout the city. Local business groups have stood on the other side of the fence, attending public meetings in support of such projects. Everyone is polite for the most part, although a man had to be removed from the Littleton Center by police May 13 after he became agitated during a planning-board meeting. “There are too many barriers between us,” said Harris. “We need to find ways to come together over common interests, like art and music. We tend to be clannish anyway when we don’t know other people, and we’ve been taught to be afraid of people we don’t know. I figure a stranger is only a stranger for about 30 seconds.” So Harris started thinking about ways

that everyone could just get along in a neutral, nonpolitical way. She was inspired by Denver’s “Keys to the City” program that placed decoratively painted pianos along the 16th Street Mall for anyone to play. She acquired a used piano and hauled it to the mall at Woodlawn Shopping Center. She debuted it at the Arapahoe County Democrats Pancake Breakfast May 18, whereupon a sing-along quickly commenced. “Somebody has to take some responsibility to change the culture on your corner, at least,” she said. But she hit a snag when other merchants in the mall complained it was too loud and might attract homeless people, and the owners of the strip mall said it had to go. “So now we’ve got to figure out what to do with the piano,” she said. She’d like to put it somewhere the whole community can access it, but also where it can help attract traffic to local merchants. She’s welcoming ideas at 720-560-3806 or betty@bettyaharris. com. Harris also recently organized a group of amateur artists who paint together once a month, and “What a Yarn,” knitters who gather at the library. “We have an absolutely marvelous time with each other,” she said. “We’ve built much stronger relationships. People that we just knew are now really good friends.”

rmoore@ourcoloradonews. com It was a good day at Duck Command central when the “Duck Dynasty” family came to town. Phil and Willie Robertson of “Duck Dynasty” made an appearance in Castle Rock May 19, to help raise funds for The Rock Christian Academy. Their visit was at the top of the list for the school’s parent-teacher fellowship, which came up with the idea to invite the Duck Commanders to town. The idea turned into a $60,000 fundraiser, with the proceeds from ticket sales dedicated to a 10,000-squarefoot expansion of the school, improvements on the school’s playground, technology updates in the classrooms and financial assistance to qualifying families, said Michael Brumbaugh, assistant direc-

Duck Commanders Phil, left, and Willie Robertson helped raise $60,000 for The Rock Christian Academy in Castle Rock with a May 19 appearance at the Douglas County Event Center.

The school intends to use part of the money to provide scholarships to families who can’t afford the $4,700 annual tuition, Brumbaugh said. One unexpected consequence of the “Duck Dynasty” visit began to emerge in the days after the academy began spreading the word about the event.

At the time of the announcement, enrollment was 86 students, Brumbaugh said. The day after the Duck Commanders left town, enrollment for the coming school year was 106 students. “There will likely be even more students enrolled before the school year begins,” Brumbaugh said. “That was (our) main goal — to increase enrollment.”

Law aims to keep jobs in state Governor signs bill that GOP links to unions By Vic Vela

vvela@ourcoloradonews.com Gov. John Hickenlooper on May 24 signed into law a state-contracting reform bill that aims to reduce the outsourcing of public works projects and penalizes employers who do not hire local workers or who buy foreign-produced materials. But it’s a bill that earned little legislative support from Republicans, who panned the legislation as another example of Democrats protecting unions over businesses. House Bill 1292, which Democrats dubbed the “Keep Jobs in Colorado Act,” reforms the bidding process for state work projects, such as highway construction. Bill sponsors say the legislation helps to ensure that Colorado taxpayer dollars are being spent on local workers. “This really was my number one priority coming into this legislative session,” said state Sen. Andy Kerr, D-Lakewood. “We need to do everything we can to keep and create jobs in Colorado, and make sure our taxpayer dollars are being used as wisely as possible.” Under the bill, state agencies would not

‘I wasn’t trying to protect one kind of worker over the other. I think the important thing is that local taxpayers are protected and that jobs stay here, at the end of the day.’ State Sen. Jeanne Nicholson, D-Black Hawk only weigh bid costs from contractors, but also would take into consideration “best value” bids, which include factors such as the contractor’s employment practices, such as worker wages and benefits. The teeth in the act is in the enforcement of a law that’s been on the books for 80 years. Before the bill was introduced, there was a requirement that state-funded construction projects have a workforce that is made up of 80 percent of Colorado workers. For years, the requirement was rarely, if ever enforced, primarily because the penalty for employers who violated the law was jail time. Now, the bill creates a series of civil pen-

alties that could eventually lead to contractor disbarment whenever that 80 percent threshold is not met. State agencies can waive the 80 percent rule if contractors can show there is not sufficient Colorado labor available for a project. The bill also requires many contractors to provide proof of the country of origin for materials used in projects, such as iron and steel. The two state entities that will oversee enforcement of the bill’s provisions will be the Departments of Labor and Employment, and Personnel and Administration. Some contractors who testified during

“It’s the only real job I’ve ever had,” he laughs. Stephens lives in Arvada with his wife, Susie, an investigator with the Jefferson County District Attorney’s Office. They have two sons: Hayden, 8, and Brenten, 5. He most recently headed up Denver’s gang unit, but worked everything from street patrol to internal affairs to officer training to hostage negotiations. He headed up the pattern crimes unit for a while, investigating trending crimes despite not having any detective experience. “They told me they didn’t need a detective, they needed someone to lead the bureau,” he said. Stephens believes a good leader helps talented people get the things they need to do a good job, supporting them along the way. “We need to give them opportunities to advance and explore the things they’re interested in,” he said. “When you learn, not only does it keep you interested, it makes you a better officer.” Asked about recent morale issues at LPD, Stephens said that from what he’s heard so far, they’re no different from any other department’s. “When you see the perception of morale issues, it’s really a communication issue,” he said. He believes the best way to lead is to remain open, accessible and inclusive. “Then you don’t have to rely on rumor and speculation, which can hurt morale,” he said. That goes for the community, too, Stephens said. Outreach is invaluable to a po-

ther is true, he said. “We have important things to do, but probably not more important things to do,” said Dugan. “Call us. We’ll send four or five officers there. We’ll saturate that area, and if enough of that happens, they’ll go elsewhere.” Dugan said the new chief, Douglas Stephens, has already talked about reinstituting community teams. Until last summer, LPD maintained a special-enforcement team focused on gangs, drugs, graffiti, sex offenders and similar crimes. The team was disbanded due to vacancies in the department, and the officers were reassigned to patrol. Several neighbors commented that they’ve noticed distinct improvements in things like crosswalks, sidewalks and general cleanliness. Denise Stephens, director of economic development, said the city has focused its community-development block grants from the county on the neighborhood for capital improvements, and Re-

the legislative process raised concern their costs of doing business with the state would rise and that the bill’s reporting requirements would increase overhead. In fact, the General Assembly’s Legislative Council’s staff report on the bill states that “the new reporting required by the bill may increase contractor costs.” Republicans have criticized the bill as something that could actually reduce the number of contracting jobs and blasted it as having been spearheaded by unions. The AFL-CIO was a major driver of the legislation. “Whatever happened to the simple, `Hey, low bid? Qualified bidder? Sold?’” said Sen. Kevin Grantham, R-Canon City, during a Senate debate earlier this month. “That’s good for the taxpayer.” But bill supporters believe there should be more to the process than just low bids. “A low bid may cost less, but at the end of the day, it may not be the best value for the taxpayer,” Kerr said. And bill sponsors disagree that this bill is all about making unions happy. “I wasn’t trying to protect one kind of worker over the other,” said Sen. Jeanne Nicholson, D-Black Hawk. “I think the important thing is that local taxpayers are protected and that jobs stay here, at the end of the day.” lice department, he believes, so he’ll look at reviving the special-enforcement teams that were disbanded last summer, or something like them. SET teams focus on crimes like graffiti, gang activity and such, and the officers take on dual roles of crime-fighting and outreach. “I’m a fan of proactive units,” he said. Having come straight out of Denver’s gang unit, many are wondering how Stephens plans to impact the northeast neighborhood in the wake of last year’s gangrelated homicide. While he said he’s not yet intimately familiar with the area’s issues, he will be. “Generally, the best approach is a comprehensive one that involves both police and the community,” he said. Earning the respect and trust of residents is key, he believes, and says Littletonites already have a good relationship with the department. He said the city and the department are both sized just right — big enough to have good resources, but small enough to get things done. “It just feels good,” he said. Stephens intends to leave the two division-chief spots vacated by Bill Christensen and Bob Brandt vacant for now and focus resources instead on making sure there are enough officers on the streets. “The supervisors now are really stepping up to the plate,” he said. Asked about what stands out so far in his career, he said that, sadly, it’s the bad things — dead friends and tragedy. “But there are so many good things about this job, I can’t imagine doing anything else,” he said. “My favorite memories are a combination of all the smiles and laughs and camaraderie with all the people I’ve worked with. It’s like spending time with your friends.”

‘I think the city government does a really great job of supporting the community.’ Bryan Lynch, police officer becca Thompson, senior code specialist, said they’ve stepped up code enforcement in the area. “We look for things that as you drive around the neighborhood make you think, `I wouldn’t want to live there,’” she said. Kimberly Kingston with South Metro Housing Options noted the agency can help with a wide variety of grants and loans for homeowners and renters alike, intended to help maintain properties. “I think the city government does a really great job of supporting the community; it’s just a matter of getting the word out,” said Lynch.

Unlock your mortgage approval R

eal estate professionals say the market is rebounding, and many would-be home buyers are eagerly awaiting their opportunities to purchase their own homes. Fresh data indicates that the inventory of properties is quickly drying up and soon the market is poised to point in the sellers’ favor. According to Allen & Associates, a real estate appraisal, consultant and research firm based in Colorado, properties in the area listed for sale are below the six-month supply of inventory. Now could be the time to get a good deal on a home, provided buyers are able to secure mortgages. No matter how many affordable homes are available, if a buyer cannot get approved for a mortgage, then his or her chances of owning a home are slim. In the wake of a tumultuous economy, many lenders tightened restrictions on mortgage lending. And even though the economy has rebounded, many lenders have continued to follow strict guidelines before lending money. In order to secure a mortgage with a good interest rate, buyers must take control of their financial situations and fix problems that could lead to loan rejection. Many things can impact a mortgage application. Here are the ways to overcome liabilities and improve your standing with prospective lenders. Know your credit rating. Your credit rating is a score that lenders rely on when deciding whether or not to approve your mortgage application. The higher the credit rating, the more attractive you look to prospective lenders. But the lower your score is, the more difficulty you will have getting a loan. Should you get a loan with a low score, you may have to pay a higher interest rate than someone with better credit. Prior to making any big financial decisions, such as applying for a mortgage, it is vital to find out your credit score. You can request a free copy of your credit report, which includes your credit score, once a year from the three major credit reporting agencies in the United States and Canada: TransUnion, Experian and Equifax. You also

N

L E D MO ! N E P OW O

can pay for your credit report. Address any issues on your report. Once you know your score, you can take steps to address any issues on the report. Pay down revolving consumer debts, such as credit card balances and auto loans. Report any errors on your credit report so they can be adjusted. Pay bills on time and address any notices of collections before they make it onto your permanent record. If you will be applying for a loan soon, avoid opening any other credit accounts for the time being. Maintain steady employment. Having a job is often vital to getting a mortgage. Lenders tend to look for long-term financial stability, which is best illustrated by maintaining steady employment. Jumping from job to job may be a red flag to lenders, so it’s better to make a switch after you have been approved for a loan. Save, save, save. Having more money in the bank lowers your loan-to-value ratio, or LTV. This will make you appear less risky to lenders. Individuals who have saved for a considerable down payment on a home are also seen in a better light. Make sure you have a credit history. Some people are too cautious with their credit and think closing accounts or avoiding credit entirely will make them more attractive to lenders. But this can backfire. Lenders will want to see a strong credit history that indicates your ability to pay your debts on time. Get a cosigner. If you are uncertain about your ability to secure a loan on your own, then consider a cosigner to make you more attractive to prospective lenders. The cosigner helps guarantee the lender that your mortgage payments will be made. People looking to buy a home in the near future must make themselves attractive to mortgage lenders, many of whom are still reluctant to approve loans for candidates without strong financial backgrounds. ■ Metro Creative Services

Winners on the walls Greenwood Village gallery invites five artists to show works By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com Each year, Curtis Arts and Humanities Center invites artists to enter an All Colorado Show, with a juror selecting the exhibit from many entries. This spring, director Jo Cole decided to invite five winners from previous years to submit works for the “Gold Medal Show: Five Years of First Place Winners From the Greenwood Village All Colorado Annual Shows.” Invited artists each exhibit a small selection of representative work, which gives a good picture of the high-quality art this gallery attracts. It should be better known among area art lovers.

if you go Curtis Arts and Humanities Center is located at 2349 E. Orchard Road, just west of University. It is open from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays. 303-7971779. Admission is free. The center also offers art classes for children and adults. It was originally a 1920 red brick schoolhouse at Orchard Road and University and was converted into a Landmark Historic Site and Gallery by the Greenwood Village Arts and Humanities Council. Hardwood floors, large windows and good lighting offer an inviting background for modestsized exhibits of all sorts. Invited artists in this show are: • Kathryn Cole, whose works are softedged, figurative in subtle colors. • Joellyn Duesberry, a prolific painter who lives in Greenwood Village and paints the landscapes around her, including scenes along the South Platte River, in a dis-

tinctive style. • Rob Gratiot, a Denver painter who frequently exhibits at Curtis and elsewhere in a hyper-realistic style with city scenes and still lifes. “There is a certain mystery about approaching windows and doors,” he writes. They simultaneously keep the viewer out and let the viewer partially into the pictured space. • Sharon Holsapple paints large, engaging figurative works. • Irene Delka McCray, whose figures certainly encourage the viewer to create stories. She writes in her website about “the possibilities, desires and necessities bound up in human beingness … paintings are meant as scenes from the psychic realm.” The exhibit will run until June 7 and should interest viewers of all kinds. Painters certainly will be intrigued by presentation and technique, but everyone will be drawn to the stories these artists have to tell us. Where have they been and what are they wanting to share with us?

Arts, drama, nature provide summer fun Kids have plethora of activities in area By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcolorado news.com For children’s summer fun, the trick is to hit a balance that fits each individual child — one that a parent can manage to provide. Running and playing ball and swimming fill the bill for many kids, but for some others, taking a crack at Shakespeare or a musical, working in clay or paint, or getting up close and personal with a frog or turtle may open new possibilities. Each of our areas has a recreation district with a great variety of programs. See catalogs online for South Suburban, Englewood, Highlands Ranch, Lone Tree, Parker and Castle Rock. We have a few additional suggestions that may fit a child’s interests: • The Actor’s Playground at Town Hall Arts Center in Littleton offers a production of “Grease” (school version) for grades 6-12, running June 17 to

Young artists get creative in Greenwood Village’s Art in the Park Program at Silo Park. Courtesy photo July 12, with eight performances scheduled. For grades 1 to 5, there’s junior play production of “The Aristocats” June 17 to July 3. “On Camera Techniques” is for grades 4 to 9 and explores differences between live theater and on-camera performance. A Fairy Camp Theater Skills class for K-3 runs July 8 to 12. A Superhero camp for K-3 is July 22 to 26. Swashbuckling Sword Skills for Grades 6 to 12 is July 22 to 26. Instructors are Seth Maisel and Shelly Bordas. Visit www.townhallartscenter.com/

classes.asp. 303-794-2787. • The Greater Castle Rock Arts Guild has just released a long list of classes, with many for teens. See GCRAG.org. • Front Range Theater Company in Castle Rock will hold its Triple Threat Summer Camp July 15 to 26, with performances July 26-27. • Englewood’s annual summer musical will be “Oliver.” Rehearsals and performances will be held at Mullen High School, 3601 S. Lowell Blvd., while Englewood High School is under

construction. • Curtis Arts and Humanities Center, 2349 E. Orchard Road in Greenwood Village, offers two Mini Art Master programs on Mondays: on June 17 (Michelangelo and Mondrian); June 24 (Bourgeois and Lichtenstein); July 15 (Matisse and Munch); Aug. 5 (Hokusai and Marc). See greenwoodvillage.com or call 303-486-5773. • Greenwood Village also offers hands-on projects with Art in the Park — 12 sessions at Silo Park, 9300 E. Orchard Road, on Tuesdays and Thursdays June 11, 13, 18, 20, 25 and 27, July 2, 11, 16 and 18, and Aug. 6 and 8. See greenwoodvillage.com or call 303-486-5773. • South Platte Park offers Ranger Pam’s Nature Adventures for 4- and 5-year-olds; Kids’ Nature Clubhouse for 6- to 10-year-olds (several sessions); Junior Rangers for 10- to 12-year-olds, plus individual events, such as night hikes. See sspr.org. We recognize this is just a sample of what is available out there, based on information we have received. Exploration is encouraged

Smashburger founder Tom Ryan, the man who also brought you Tom’s Urban 24, a 24-hour diner style restaurant on Larimer Square, just opened another fast-casual eatery, Live Basil Pizza, at 6305 E. Hampden Ave. in Denver, on May 23. The new chain plans to open more outlets. The process is similar to Denver-based Chipotle Mexican Grill, where customers go through a line choosing what ingredients they want on their thin-crust pizzas before the dough goes in an oven that can cook a pizza in 150 seconds, according to an Associated Press report. “Co-founder Ryan says he thinks fresh, fast pizzas made before a customer’s eyes is where the market is heading,” according to the story. “A handful of shops, including 800 Degrees in Los Angeles, has similar concepts. Plans for such a chain were announced previously under the name Honest Pizza.” Honestly? I just want my pizza delivered to my house hot and in under an hour. On another pizza note, Pizzeria Locale from the Frasca folks is opening at Sixth and Broadway (also known as the impossible place to park safely).

Dog-gone good eatin’ at DIA

Steve’s Snappin’ Dogs, the popular spot at 3525 E. Colfax Ave., has formed a joint venture with LS Travel Retail North America and Doc 1 Solutions to open a restaurant in Denver International Airport, Concourse B. The airport space will be 1,390 square feet where owner and founder Steve Ballas and his wife, Linda, will serve a litter of their famous hot dogs along with sides such as the scrumptious deep-fried green beans. Voted “Best Hot Dogs in Denver” for six years in a row and 11th on the list of “Best Hot Dog Across America,” Steve’s Snappin’ Dogs has been catering to Denver residents and visitors for seven years in its Colfax location. Its restaurant is one of the most authentic and welcoming in the area, and its menu has a unique “homemade” feel. It includes hot dogs, burgers, and sides such as French fries, onion rings, potato tots and chili con carne. Steve’s Snappin’ Dogs is a supporter of local organizations, such as Project Angel Heart, which serves meals to people with life-threatening conditions. “This is a dream come true for my wife and I … we’re walking on air in the Mile High City! We’re super excited to be part of this and look forward to working with our partners and the airport team to introduce the world to the city’s best hot dogs,” Ballas said. A dine-in restaurant, the DIA Steve’s Snappin’ Dogs also will feature take-out options for travelers in a rush, including “Steve’s On The Go”: a grab-and-go counter offering ready-made hot dogs, breakfast sandwiches and wraps. Partnering with the Colorado native Bull & Bush Pub and Brewery — winner of a Gold Award at the World Beer Cup, the world’s largest beer competition — the location also will feature a large bar offering beer, bottled and on tap. “We are pleased to have Steve’s Snappin’ Dogs, and for the first time, LS travel retail, join our team,” said John Ackerman, chief commercial officer at Denver International Airport. “Steve’s is a popular local brand that will enhance the overall offerings at DIA, and help diversify our concessions.” With this new award, LS travel retail Parker continues on Page 28

‘Swan Lake’ comes to life on screen

Wicks returns to jury Depot art exhibit By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com “Swan Lake Marinsky Live” will be broadcast live to a movie theater near you at 6:30 p.m. June 6. The renowned St. Petersburg ballet company will be shown in performance from the historic Marinsky Theatre in Russia, with principal ballerina Ekatrina Kondaurove as Odette. Technology by the Cameron|Pace Group/ RealD 3D. Participating theaters include: Greenwood Plaza 12, Regal River Point and Highlands Ranch 24. Tickets are available online at FathomEvents.com.

Royal baby shower

Since the monarchy is taking excellent care of the expected royal baby, FanciMats and More, 5654 S. Prince St #B, has found two beneficiaries of baby gifts that will happily accept gifts for moms and new babies. And FanciMats is hosting a party from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. June 8, with cake and punch. One recipient is the San Luis Valley Medical Center and Women’s Health division, the only provider in that lowincome area. The other is the Nurse Family Partnership, which provides one-on-one service to underserved mothers-to-be and new mothers to assure a safer pregnancy and healthier baby. Wrapped new items should be labeled — or FanciMats will provide labels. 303-798-9825.

‘Simple Gifts’ concert

The Castle Rock Chorale presents a concert called “Simple Gifts” on two evenings: 7:30 p.m. May 31 at Christ’s Episcopal Church, 615 4th St., Castle Rock, and 7:30 p.m. June 8 at Valley View Christian Church, 11004 Wildfield Lane, near Highlands Ranch. Anthems, folk tunes, songs of remembrance, lullabies, nursery rhymes and a premiere of a new composition

Artist Inocente Izucar will participate, teach and exhibit her work in the opening of a special exhibit at RedLine Gallery, 2350 Arapahoe St., Denver. Opening June 1, the exhibit, “Not Exactly: Between Home and Where I Find Myself,” presents a dialogue on what it means to be homeless, with art by Denver homeless people. The exhibit runs through July 31 and has related programs. A film about Izucar when she was a young undocumented immigrant — and homeless — will be shown at the Denver Film Center at 4:14 and 4:30 p.m. on June 2, followed by a reception and Q&A with the artist. Other events and programs are being planned. Visit redlineart.org.

Artist David Wicks, a former Littleton resident, returned to the Depot Gallery to jury the newest member’s exhibit: “Light and Shadow, Day and Night,” which runs until July 14. He selected Pat Dall’s ink-resist watercolor “Evening Shops” as Best of Show. It depicts a woman strolling past a colorful yet closed coffee shop in evening light. Artificial light adds to the shadows in the scene. Awards also went to Anna Marie Linning: First Place for “Glory Morning”; to photographer Judy Deist: Second Place for “Escher White”; and Third Place to Rita Bentley for her oil painting, “Shadow Cat.” Honorable mentions went to Pat Dall, Fred Bikle and Peggy Dietz (two). Wicks’ website speaks of his interest in both painting and sculpture. He uses a variety of mediums and focuses on a wide range of subjects. Littleton art lovers will probably remember his watercolors of favorite spots in Europe, which have hung at the Littleton Museum, at the Depot and in statewide Colorado Watercolor Society exhibits and Lone Tree exhibits.

if you go The Depot Gallery is at 2069 W. Powers Ave., just north of the courthouse and Buck Recreation Center in downtown Littleton. Hours: 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesdays through Sundays. Admission free. 303-795-0781.

Spend an evening back in 1967 Treasured artifact ‘Hair’ at Town Hall Arts Center

IF YOU GO “Hair” plays through June 16 at Town Hall Arts Center, 2450 W. Main Street in downtown Littleton. Performances: 7:30 p.m. Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays; 2 p.m. Sundays; plus 2 p.m. on June 1 and 6:30 p.m. on June 9. Tickets cost $20 to $40, 303-794-2787, ext. 5, or townhallartscenter.com.

By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com Peace, love, flowers, dance and an ongoing party fill Littleton’s Town Hall Arts Center with a mostly positive vibe for two hours as the cast of “Hair: the American Tribal Love-Rock Musical” takes one timetraveling to 1967, a trip conducted by director Nick Sugar and a strong cast. The stage is covered with overlapped Oriental rugs, the backdrop a huge sun design. At the side, on steps, is a great fourpiece ensemble, led by music director Donna Debreceni. This production follows the recent joyous re-staging on Broadway by Diane Paulus and features much more interaction between cast and audience than the original — which fits with the general sweet spirit of the show. The book and lyrics by Gerome Ragni and James Rado, set to a rock score by Gail McDermott, celebrate the youth movement and passions in a place that seems far, far away today. Sugar’s cast, continually in motion and carefully choreographed to look casual, delivers the familiar songs and story with a fresh enthusiasm and strong voices, beginning with “Age of Aquarius” by Dionne (Ashley-Amber Harris) and tribe, led by the

Andree) is drafted and eventually decides to report for duty instead of burning his draft card as many of his friends did. Also, drugs are omnipresent. In 1967, “Hair,” the first rock musical, had music and spirit that swept the nation. Today, it seems like a treasured artifact — one wants to revisit again and again. Sugar comments in his notes, “‘Hair” tackled the most controversial issues facing our coun-

try. The cast of hippies echoed chants from the streets outside, protesting the Vietnam war, the draft, sexual repression, racism, environmental destruction and poverty through their message of peace and love. “No matter which side you stood on in the 1960s, or in 2013, our world is still trying to figure out how we can all learn to love one another.” This lovingly presented production still speaks to us today — as discord flares in every direction. When you go, be prepared for a smiling hippie in — or close to — your lap! Costumes by Linda Morken are consistently raggedy and quirky, without being overdone; lighting and sound are welldesigned and Sugar’s choreography is remarkable: seemingly casual, but carefully blocked so no one is knocked over in the almost constant, upbeat motion. Some of the language would be classified as adult, so little ones might be better off at home, but teens should enjoy this slice of our history. “Hair” really is a piece of our national cultural fabric.

Scorecard error proves costly for Valor

Disqualification puts girls golf team from namin second place at state

Second place is never bad but if you go out onaland perform like you are capable, you win. “If you don’t perform the way you are capable of, you get beat. It happens in all sports. Look at the Broncos. They were pretty sick after their playoff loss. Everybody on our team has to look in the mirror. We lost six strokes to par on the last four holes. We just have to go work harder and not let it happen again.” Valor’s Laura Cohen was disqualified after the first round for signing an incorrect scorecard. Cohen turned in an opening-day 86, which should have been an 87 because she didn’t count a penalty stroke on No. 18. Cohen said she and the girl keeping her score agreed on the score. Hofer told tournament officials about

Local golf pro eyes spot in U.S. Open Preeo to play in qualifying tourney in California By Jim Benton

jbenton@ourcoloradonews.com Jason Preeo has had to make some inconvenient alterations to his vacation plans. Preeo, the Highlands Ranch teaching golf professional who works for MetaGolf Academy at Broken Tee at Englewood and the Colorado Golf Club in Parker, is taking his wife and children on a trip to Southern California to visit friends and relatives and go to Disneyland. However, Preeo will have to modify a few plans since he will be playing June 3 in the 36-hole U.S. Open Sectional qualifying tournament, which will be held at the Newport Beach Country Club and the Grand Canyon Country Club. “We were going out there so this was all planned,” said Preeo, who is also the head boys golf coach at Valor Christian. “I chose California knowing that I would be out there anyway. It worked out. “We had to change a day of flights. It sounds funny, it is definitely a little bit of an inconvenience in terms of what we had planned and were trying to do. I won’t be around quite as much trying to arrange practice rounds and things. It is another week of inconveniences but hopefully it will be a good one.” Preeo carded a three-under-par 68 and survived a playoff in a local U.S. Open qualifying tourney May 13 at Collindale Golf Course in Fort Collins to advance to the California Sectionals. It will be the fifth time in seven years that Preeo, a 2010 Open qualifier, has played in the second phase of U.S. Open qualifying. “You really can’t get too far ahead of yourself,” said Preeo. “You have to get through

the first 18 to 27 holes and see where you are at and decide what you have to do from there. In terms of performance, it always helps to putt well. That will keep you in and give you opportunities. “I don’t know if it’s about mentally preparing for it. I think about it a little bit. Some of it is, with any of these stages, you don’t have to play as well as you think you do. You just have to play solid. The previous experiences of being in that environment and seeing the scores that will ultimately get you through, it’s good golf but it’s not great golf. “The prize is so much greater in these events, it is easier to get ahead of yourself,” continued Preeo. “Even to win a local tournament around here, it’s neat to do but it’s not quite the same as playing well and getting yourself into the U.S. Open.” Preeo hasn’t had time much time to polish his game. He played only two rounds of golf prior to the Collindale tournament and has spent more time teaching than playing in preparation for his “vacation” golf outing. “I wouldn’t compare it to riding a bike but it’s similar in that fashion,” he said. “I’ve hit it in the trees enough that I’m comfortable having to hit a shot around them, left or right or whatever I need to do. So even though I haven’t played in a while, it’s something that comes back to you. “You might not be quite as sharp but you still have a fighting chance. I’m hoping to just get practice rounds at both places. I think I can accomplish that but I don’t think I have much time for more than that. As long as I’m familiar and have a plan for both courses, I’ll be as prepared as I can be.” There will be 13 Sectional qualifying tournaments to help determine the field for the June 13-16 U.S. Open that will be played at Merion Golf Club in Ardmore, Pa.

All three locally owned restaurants will open in the revitalized

May 30, 2013 train terminal in July 2014 with each featuring a large patio for outdoor dining. “This is an exciting first step in establishing Union Station as Denver’s next great dining destination for both locals and visitors,” said Jeff Hermanson, chief executive officer of Larimer Associates. “These award-winning restaurants represent the true Colorado experience and embody downtown Denver’s genuine collaborative spirit.” Before selecting the restaurants that Larimer Associates would lease at Union Station, they held a series of focus groups to help determine the public’s preference for the landmark property. “We consistently heard that Union Station is an iconic Colorado building with a rich history and that everyone wanted to see Colorado-based businesses in there,” said Pat McHenry, leasing and acquisition partner at Larimer Associates. “This really resonated with us and was a great guide as we sought the hippest concepts and most talented chefs to anchor Union Stations. Luckily for us, these restaurateurs are excited about being a part of Union Station as we are.” Scheduled to open in July 2014, Denver’s new Union Station also will feature several other locally owned dining and retail establishments as well as a 112-room luxury boutique hotel managed by Sage Hospitality.
