A year of tragedy and triumph The past year was some kind of ride — an emotional roller coaster, if you will. The year brought the nation a presidential election and the barrage of campaign ads preceding it. It brought us a Summer Olympics and a contingent of American champions. In Colorado, 2012 brought us a slew of wildfires that cost some people everything and filled the skies with smoke as far as you could see. The year brought us the Aurora theater massacre. South Metro Denver residents shared in all of this in one way or another. But here, we also saw signs of a potentially booming economy as more and more developers and employers moved in. We saw a school district entangled in controversy. And we saw tragedies that hit on a smaller scale, but were equally heartbreaking to area communities. What follows is a compilation of the South Metro area’s top 10 stories of the year as chosen by the newsroom staff of Colorado Community Media. These are the stories we believe had the greatest impact on our readers in 2012. They are presented in no particular order. We’ll let you, the reader, be the judge of the single biggest story of the year.

Caught up in ‘Missy mania’

A 17-year-old swimmer from Centennial captivated the nation this past summer. Missy Franklin won five medals, four of them gold, at the Olympics in London.

In August, hundreds of fans packed Centennial Center Park for a welcome-home ceremony for Franklin and all of Colorado’s Olympians. But the hometown girl was the star of the show in what ended up being more like a big block party as “The Missile” danced her way to the podium to Carly Rae Jepson’s “Call Me, Maybe.” Gov. John Hickenlooper and Centennial Mayor Cathy Noon lauded Franklin, along with six additional Colorado athletes on their return from London. Team USA grabbed 104 medals. Nine of those were awarded to Coloradans. “That makes about 8.69 percent of the total medal count going to Colorado,” said Hickenlooper. “So I’d say we definitely out2012 continues on Page 4

Littleton police have arrested a second suspect in the shooting that killed 18-yearold Da Von Flores and wounded a 17-yearold. Robert Alexander Placa, 18, of Centennial was taken into custody on Dec. 20. He’s charged with first-degree murder, attempted first-degree murder, possession of a weapon by a previous offender and possession of a defaced firearm. He is being held without bond at the Arapahoe County jail. He joins Dion Rankin, 20, of Englewood, who was arrested Oct. 24 and is facing charges of first-degree Placa murder. He’s scheduled to appear in court on Jan. 3. On Oct. 19, officers responded to the 5400 block of South Fox Street about 11 p.m. on reports of shots fired. They arrived quickly to find the two males shot and lying in the street. Flores, a new father, died at the scene. The Rev. Leon Kelly of Open Door Youth Gang Alternatives has talked to the wounded teen’s mother. She says her son is physically OK but bitter and angry. “His attitude now is just hard-core,” said Kelly. “And now he thinks he’s invincible.” The altercation was tied to a house party on Fox Street. Neighbor kids say those involved were gang-bangers with a “previous beef,” and a Facebook search indicates they could be right. Now removed, Flores’ page showed him with a blue bandanna covering the lower half of his face. Rankin’s page references “CMG,” which is short for Crenshaw Mafia Gangsters, affiliated with the Bloods. Kelly says CMG first took hold in Denver’s Park Hill neighborhood about 27 years ago. Littleton’s northeast neighborhood is no stranger to trouble. A year before, Evaristo Galindo, then 17, told Littleton police officers he was alone in Progress Park when he got shot on Oct. 21, 2011. Doctors found birdshot pellets lodged in his shinbone and jawbone, according to the police report. A disturbance was reported about 10:30 that night near West Prentice Avenue and South Lakeview Street, immediately south of the park. Witnesses heard gunshots, fighting and squealing tires. Two witnesses reported they saw up to 15 people in the intersection, some yelling “South Side” and “SPV 13,” indicating gang activity. The northeast neighborhood for years has been the focus of much outreach from groups like Greater Littleton Youth Initiative, Littleton Immigrant Integration Initiative and North Littleton Promise, which was formed specifically to serve the area. “A group of community-minded people from Centennial Covenant Church learned about the suburbanization of poverty and began to explore if there was indeed a struggling community in suburban Littleton,” reads NLP’s website. “After talking with local law enforcement, they discovered a community in northeast Littleton where gang involvement, truancy and teen pregnancy were prevalent.”

Santa Shop brings warmth to winter For three years, Heather Jacobs bundled up on a chilly December morning outside a nondescript Littleton warehouse for the chance to bring Christmas to her daughter. She didn’t have money to buy presents. But inside the Arapahoe Santa Shop, that didn’t matter. There, she could wander delightedly among tables laden — like a wondrous feast — with puzzles, games and dolls. She could choose gifts her daughter would love most, then head home with a sack filled with toys, wrapping paper and bows. “I didn’t just get a toy,” she said. “I got a whole Christmas.” This year, with her daughter too old for the program, Jacobs, 37, returned the helping hand. She cleaned, organized and worked at the warehouse, from morning till night, for more than a week before the Dec. 14 and 15 toy distribution days. “I have to give back for the past,” Jacobs said. “I can’t pay it back in cash. … The only thing I really have is time.” And that, perhaps, is the biggest gift of all. Inside the chalky warehouse walls swirls a vivid and tangible sense of giving. Like so many elves, volunteers — many longtime returnees in their 70s wearing Santa hats and sweaters in red and green — bestow quick smiles amid the bustle. They kindle a spirit of compassion and selflessness we all hope to impart, but which often is swallowed by the season’s busyness and commercial excess. “They are all a great group,” Jacobs said. “They’re really kind, they don’t judge, and they genuinely want be here for the kids.” They have created, as Jacobs noted, a community that for 54 years has consis-

tently dispensed help, wrapped in generous bows of respect and hope, to a population that is often accorded neither. This year, the Arapahoe Santa Shop served 2,700 children from mostly Littleton, but also Englewood and Sheridan, all referred by schools and social service agencies. Throughout the Denver metro area, many other organizations do the same for families in need. But this particular program, using a system that allocates 100 points per child, uniquely allows families to choose the toys they want until the points are used up. “It gives them a little dignity,” longtime volunteer Phil Gomez said. It gives those who make it happen — a toy store of dreams come true — purpose. “We hope this will be a special part of your Christmas experience,” co-director Shirley Nixon said to volunteers a few minutes before opening the doors. Her voice catches. “It certainly is of mine.” Nixon, a petite, sprightly woman of 76, has worked with the Santa shop for a decade. The time and dedication of the 400 volunteers — from the women who tenderly sew new doll clothes to the men who diligently repair bikes all year to the older man

who carefully builds the wooden cradles — overwhelms her. “It is a job well done by a wonderful group of people who have the same feeling of wanting to serve the community,” she said. “They saw that these people are in need — and more and more are in need — so here we are filling that void.” The doors open and the 80 or so men and women already lined up file into rows of hard-backed seats to wait their turn to check in. They are couples and single mothers, grandparents and teen moms. They are Latino and Asian and black and white. They are tired, expectant, humble. They are the faces of everyone. The gratitude is palpable — in the quick smiles, the fervent thank-yous, the blessings given as they grab a box and begin to piece together a special memory. David McGowan, 24, is here with his sister, Crystal Kelley, 22, who just left the hospital after a two-week stay. He wants to make sure Kelley, who says she suffers from multiple sclerosis and is a bit unsteady on her feet, doesn’t stumble as she shops for her 3-year-old son. Gifts “would be a struggle, especially with hospital bills,” McGowan said. “And he’s a good kid. He deserves presents.” Kelley places a Bob the Builder DVD in the box her brother carries. “This is the heart of Colorado,” he said, putting his arm around his sister. “It’s a beautiful thing.” At the corner table covered with toys for boys 11 and 12 years old, Theresa O’Connor, 49, checks out a camera.Her 62-year-old husband, unable to work because of illness, sits nearby, an oxygen tank beside him. They have custody of six grandchildren

The city of Littleton kicks off the New Year with the debut of its new website on Jan. 7. It has many new features and is a simpler, more intuitive site intended to more effectively market Littleton to residents, businesses and visitors. Among the new features are mobile compatibility, consistent navigation, “bread crumbs” at the top of each page showing where a visitor has been, Littleton E-Connect, Commu-

nity Spotlight and event calendars.

Work to start on trail

The city was awarded $233,000 from Great Outdoors Colorado and $488,000 from Arapahoe County for the engineering, design and construction of Littleton Community Trail, a pedestrian/bicycle path along the historic City Ditch, from Lee Gulch to Prentice Avenue and eventually connecting to the Big Dry Creek Trail in Englewood.

Her eyes betray a weary sadness. “This will help my grandchildren to have Christmas, at least from their grandparents, because I don’t have the money to buy them presents.” As she walks toward another table, tremulous words float back: “I love them with all my heart.” Nick Olson’s eyes light up as he spots a wooden push-toy. “This is nice.” He smiles and shows it to his girlfriend, Tori Murr. Their son, Jordan, 4 months old, snuggles under a green blanket in a car seat. Olson, 29, also has a 7-year-old son. Their only income at the moment is the Social Security disability that Murr, 25, receives. “This is very special for us to be able to come here and do this,” Olson said. “We at least have the chance to put some presents under the tree …” A xylophone. An Operation board game. A play mat. The wooden push-toy. It will be a good Christmas. And, hopefully, a good new year. “I’m really optimistic,” Olson said. “I figure good people … good things come their way. I figure we’ll be all right.” We’ll all be all right if we continue to take care of each other. That would be the best gift of all.

East Coast deaths bring familiar pain here Sandy Hook tragedy resonates in area hurt by Columbine By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@ourcoloradonews.com Upon the tragic news coming from Newtown, Conn., a collective clutch of familiar grief gripped the south-metro community. Residents know what lies ahead for that community in the coming days, weeks and years, having lived through April 20, 1999. That’s when Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold killed 12 of their fellow Columbine High School students, a teacher and themselves. At Sandy Hook Elementary School on Dec. 14, Adam Lanza killed twice as many people plus himself, and most of his victims were first-graders. Each time a similar tragedy occurs, Columbine is on the lips of the nation. As support from the country flooded into the community after the massacre, regional leaders formed the Greater Littleton Youth Initiative to keep it from happening again. “Amazingly, at our last meeting, we just spoke about how the GLYI needs to be prepared to provide outreach and information on our own experience to help

other communities in tragic situations like Columbine,” said program manager Kay Wilmesher. “Unfortunately, the time has come already.” GLYI and city officials are sending a letter to Connecticut’s Sandy Hook Elementary School expressing condolences and mentioning how this community has been working toward healthy changes. After every school shooting, the face of the south-metro area reflects the grief it now shares with more and more communities. Littleton Public Schools Superintendent Scott Murphy felt compelled to send a letter home with students. “There are no words to express our sadness and our sympathies to those impacted,” writes Murphy. “There is nothing more important to us than your child’s safety.” All LPS schools have been on heightened alert since last Friday, he said, and security personnel are making extra patrols. More information about school safety and resources for talking to children about tragic events are available on the LPS website, www.littletonpublicschools.net. “Please know that our protocols are some of the very best in the nation, but there is always more that could be done,” said Murphy. “These conversations are currently taking place.”

City officials, too, have acknowledged the tragedy, posting tips for helping kids feel safe at www.littletongov.org. “The magnitude of death and destruction in traumatic events require special attention and communication with children,” it says. Additionally, in the wake of its theater tragedy, the city of Aurora launched a selfhelp trauma-recovery website at www.aurorastrong.bluesunsupport.com. “One of the many things we have learned about trauma recovery since July 20 is the extent to which additional events — whether another tragic event such as last Friday’s shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary, or simply the stress of the holiday season — can trigger retraumatization,” said Karen Morales, spokesperson for the 7/20 Recovery Committee. “This site will help people make sense of what they are feeling and empower them to take positive steps toward managing their own recovery.” And in what seems an unimaginable necessity, Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson shared steps to take when faced with an active shooter. First among them is, “Quickly determine the most reasonable way to protect your own life.” Murphy encourages the community to keep working together to help ensure LPS

SOMBER MOMENT

WHAT TO DO IF FACED WITH AN ACTIVE SHOOTER 1. Evacuate Have an escape route and plan in mind. Leave your belongings behind. Keep your hands visible. 2. Hide out Hide in an area out of the shooter’s view. Block entry to your hiding place and lock the doors. Silence your cell phone and/or pager. 3. Take action As a last resort and only when your life is in imminent danger. Attempt to incapacitate the shooter. Act with physical aggression and throw items at the active shooter. What to do when police arrive: Remain calm and follow instructions. Put down any items in your hands (i.e., bags, jackets). Raise hands and spread fingers. Keep hands visible at all times. Avoid quick movements toward officers such as holding on to them for safety. Avoid pointing, screaming or yelling. Do not stop to ask officers for help or direction when evacuating.

Written comments likely to return

Previous vote kept council from considering them By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@ourcoloradonews.com A recent vote to quash written comments from the public to Littleton City Council spurred some local activists into action and will likely be reversed. On Oct. 16, Councilor Bruce Beckman made a successful motion to change city council’s adopted legislative rules to read, “Written comment will not be permitted for public hearings on legislation or quasi-judicial matters so as to preserve the council/ boards’ ability to question the evidence.” That went over like a ton of bricks with the Sunshine Boys, a group that

considers itself the city’s government watchdog. “You only represent us if we come down to address you in person?” asked Carol Brzeczek. Norm Brown said the rule could put disabled people at a disadvantage, if it was difficult for them to get there. City Attorney Kirsten Crawford noted the city is required by law to accommodate anyone who wants to attend a council meeting. Additionally, she pointed out that it’s only during quasi-judicial matters that council isn’t allowed to consider anything other than evidence and testimony presented during the public hearings. Lobbying is permissible when debating proposed legislation. “I thought it sounded good at first, but my brain moves slowly,” said Councilor Peggy Cole before making a motion to get written comments back in. Council debated deadlines and acceptable formats - texts, Skype, tele-

phone, “I guess even telegram,” said Cole. City Manager Michael Penny suggested staff could come up with suggested wording for them to consider during the next regular meeting. Councilor Bruce Stahlman noted they don’t have time beforehand to consider comments made at the dais during meetings, and wondered why written comments should be treated differently. “I’d hate to cut anybody out,” he said. Councilor Phil Cernanec agreed, but wants the new wording to ensure all councilors always get the same information. “My concern is that we all get it evenly,” he said. Councilor Jerry Valdes wondered how practical it would be to take texts during meetings, and said some deadline would be needed. “I do think this is not about what’s convenient for city council, it’s what’s convenient for citizens.”

Projects, employers flock to area

Construction permits for commercial development jumped significantly while employers flocked to Douglas and Arapahoe counties in 2012. Activity continued near Highlands Ranch’s Town Center as Children’s Hospital Colorado, the first hospital in the unincorporated enclave, broke ground in May 2012 and is set to open in December 2013. The expansion of the retail hub was further helped in 2012 by the construction of numerous restaurants and Les Schwab Tire Center, Starbucks and Sprint. In neighboring Lone Tree, crews began construction on Cabela’s at Interstate 25 and RidgeGate Parkway, and work continued farther north on the Kaiser Permanente medical campus on Park Meadows Drive. The southwest corner of Lincoln and I-25 had lots of movement, with Hampton Inn, Embassy Suites and the 281-unit Vue Apartments going up. Across the highway, in the Meridian International Business Center, information technology company TriZetto built new offices, and work began on a building that will be occupied by Hitachi. Polystrand, a manufacturer of composite materials, also built a facility on the edge of Douglas and Arapahoe counties. Construction began on a $41 million Centura Hospital in Castle Rock, and two senior housing facilities opened in the Parker area. In Englewood, nearly $50 million in building permits for new construction

were issued this year, and a number of projects are scheduled to start in the first quarter of 2013. In Littleton, a new CarMax was built and an Alzheimer’s care center is under construction. Two car-lot expansions, a Health South rehab facility and a movie theater are also in the works. — Chris Michlewicz

Coffman makes it back to Washington

This time, U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman faced a test. With Colorado’s newly redrawn 6th District expected to be one of the most hotly contested congressional races of 2012, the Republican Coffman leaned heavily on those who elected him to his previous two terms. In November, Coffman defeated Coffman Democratic challenger Joe Miklosi by 4 percentage points. Coffman collected 12,247 more votes than his challenger in Douglas County, while edging him by 884 votes in Adams County and losing Arapahoe County by 6,744. The incumbent was viewed as an extremely vulnerable candidate after winning twice before in what had been a conservative safe-haven. Once the lines were redrawn, Elbert County and all of Douglas except Highlands Ranch were eliminated. The district added the remainder of Aurora, a heavily Democratic municipality. Coffman, who was attacked repeatedly in ads by Miklosi, spent a fair amount of spring and summer on the hot seat for comments he made in May at an Elbert County Town Hall. It was then he called out President Barack Obama, saying, “I do

Aurora shootings left us all wounded

We awoke to horror July

20. Cheerful thoughts of weekend plans quickly gave way to disbelief, shock and sorrow that Friday morning. From TV, radio, the Internet — everywhere you looked — the news came at us like a sledgehammer: Just after midnight, a gunman had opened fire at a movie theater in Aurora. We would find out that 12 people were killed and nearly five dozen wounded. We would watch that weekend as police staked out and searched the apartment of the suspect they had in custody, James Holmes, fearing that the 24-year-old had boobytrapped his home. We would hear stories of heroism amid the terror. Coloradans had been through this nightmare be-

Mourning a fallen officer

The South Metro area mourned the May 28 death of Jeremy Bitner, an Englewood police officer struck and killed by an alleged drunken driver. Days later, law enforcement officers wore black

bands on their badges, flags were flown at half staff in Bitner’s honor and estimates are that a couple thousand people lined Hampden Avenue to pay their respects as a mile-long funeral procession passed by. It is believed that Bitner’s death was the first of an Englewood officer in the line of duty. 2012 continues on Page 5

Officials: Gangs not school problem District reports no punishable activity By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@ourcoloradonews.com In light of the shooting death of an Options High School student in October, Littleton Public Schools officials acknowledge there’s a definite gang presence in the city but say it’s not evident in their buildings. “There’s a level of respect and honor that this community gives its schools, and I think that transfers to the students,” said Clay Alba, LPS director of secondary education. “It’s just a value in the community.” On Oct. 19, Da Von Flores, 18, died in a gun battle at Fox Street and Berry Avenue that also left a 17-year-old boy in the hospital. Littleton police arrested Dion Rankin,

20, and Robert Alexander Placa, 18, in connection with the case. Neighbor kids say the three were gangbangers with a “previous beef” that blew up at a party. But Deputy Superintendent Connie Bouwman says there hasn’t been a single gang- or weapons-related suspension or expulsion in the district this year, nor has any telltale graffiti been found on school property. LPS policy takes a no-nonsense approach to gang behavior: “The Board of Education finds that gang symbols are inherently disruptive to the educational process, and therefore prohibits the presence of any insignia, apparel, jewelry, accessory, notebook or other school supply, or manner of grooming which by virtue of its color, arrangement, trademark, or any other attribute denotes membership in gangs. The Board of Education further prohibits

any demonstration of gang membership through the use of hand gestures, graffiti, or printed or non-print media. … . A student may be suspended or expelled for failure to comply with the provisions of this policy.” School officials stress that student safety in general is their highest priority. LPS boasts an award-winning security department, recently rated by Security Magazine as the 11th-best district in the county and in the top 500 for the security industry as a whole. Safety manager Guy Grace gained national recognition for steps he took to improve school safety in the wake of Columbine. Additionally, all high schools and middle schools are assigned school-resource officers; their salaries are split between the district and the law-enforcement agency. Fortunately, said Bouwman, recent cuts at the Littleton Police Department — like Neighborhood Watch and special-enforce-

ment teams — haven’t affected its partnership with LPS. McGruff the Crime Dog approves of SROs. According to the National Crime Prevention Council: “Many young people are wary of developing friendly relationships with law enforcement officers. … Officers can address problems identified by young people and help defuse potentially violent situations.” Alba notes that the officers know the community and can interact with kids and their parents outside of school. LPS also has relationships with groups like Arapahoe/Douglas Mental Health Network, Greater Littleton Youth Initiative, the Binning Family Foundation, a volunteer truancy board, Functional Family Therapy and many more. Alba calls it “collective efficacy.” “None of this can be accomplished without all of us,” he said.

Residents from Englewood and around the area rallied to help raise money for Bitner’s wife and two young children. Efforts ranged from selling lemonade to a fundraising motorcycle ride. The drunken-driving suspect, Conner Donohue, 20, was arrested on several charges, including vehicular homicide. In October, he pleaded not guilty to all charges. His trial is tentatively scheduled for April 2013. — Tom Munds

Douglas County school discord

The Douglas County School District met with repeated resistance and incited a string of controversy in 2012 as the board attempted to implement significant changes in education. In March, the district opened its annual negotiations with the teachers’ union to the public, an effort that ended with the expiration of the long-standing collective bargaining agreement. Since then, the district has implemented a marketbased pay program for its teachers, and begun implementation of a new payfor-performance program. Both are controversial among teachers. In August, a former teacher began a one-man protest in front of the district’s administration building in Castle Rock. It grew into what has become a series of regular protests before school board meetings by those who oppose some board policies. In November, the controversial voucher program had its second day in court, as attorneys for the school district and those who oppose the plan argued their points before the Colorado Court of Appeals. A decision is not expected until early 2013. A Denver District Court judge last year ruled that the program, which would allow DCSD students to use public funds toward tuition at private schools, is unconstitutional. — Jane Reuter

Communities face decisions on marijuana

With Colorado voters legalizing the recreational use of marijuana for those 21 and older in November, area cities and towns are

grappling with whether or not to allow retail sales or commercial growth. Residents of unincorporated Douglas County, like everyone else, can grow up to six plants in their homes and partake legally in private. However, they will have to head elsewhere to purchase their weed. On Dec. 18, the county became the first in the state to ban commercial facilities. The county’s municipalities are looking to do the same. The Town of Parker adopted a ban on commercial operations, effective Dec. 23, and councils for the Town of Castle Rock and City of Lone Tree are considering similar bans. In Arapahoe County, Englewood has already passed an ordinance against commercial grow operations and shops, while Littleton, Centennial and the county are still figuring out which direction to go. Arapahoe County currently allows medical marijuana dispensaries, as do Englewood and Littleton. — Ryan Boldrey

Massive wildfire threatens from south

This past year was devastating to Colorado when it came to wildfires. For residents of southern Douglas County, one fire loomed most ominously, but ultimately spared the county’s land and residents. The first signs of smoke from the devastating Waldo Canyon Fire were reported on June 23, and by June 27, Douglas County officials ordered the pre-evacuation of residents in the southwest portion of the county, including residents in Larkspur and Perry Park. Within days, Gov. John Hickenlooper issued an order to prohibit private fireworks displays, and many communities called off their Fourth of July shows.

Littleton can go years without a violent death. But in 2012, police found themselves investigating five homicides. • Darin Ninneman stands accused of stabbing his mother to death. Their

Da Von Flores, who was shot in October near Fox and Powers streets, was one of five people suspected of being homicide victims in Littleton in 2012. File photo drug-fueled relationship apparently imploded. • In what might have been Littleton’s first gang murder, a shooting left Da Von Flores dead and a 17-year-old boy wounded. Police arrested Dion Rankin and Robert Alexander Placa. • Ken Germain, a 68-year-old mortgage lender with a spotty past, was shot to death. His business partner, Colin Collea, was found dead later that night, apparently a suicide. • Police arrested Teddy

Puente and an unidentified girl in the death of Walter Zucchetti. His body was discovered in his apartment. The coroner’s office hasn’t released autopsy results. • Dylan Jones thought his uncle was an intruder and stabbed him to death. The district attorney declined to press charges. Add a violent gas-station attack and two home invasions, and for many, 2012 was a year they would like to forget. — Jennifer Smith

Sterling Ranch hits roadblock

Just when it looked like Sterling Ranch was ready to take off, it was dealt a surprise setback. The planned development in the Chatfield Valley was approved by Douglas County commissioners in May 2011, with plans to develop 3,500 acres to create 12,000 homes. Within weeks of the approval, the Chatfield Community Association filed a lawsuit to stop the development, in part because of the developer’s plan to submit

water adequacy at each plat or phase of development. In August 2012, a Douglas County judge agreed with the group and reversed the county’s decision. District Court Judge Paul King ruled the proposal to establish water adequacy at each plat violated a state law that requires developers to prove their water supply at the rezoning stage for new construction. “While land use and development is a matter of local concern, the adequacy of water for new developments is a matter of statewide concern,” King ruled. “To this end our legislature mandated … that local government shall not approve an application for a development unless it determines that the applicant has established that the proposed water supply for the development is adequate.” In November 2012, King denied a request for reconsideration filed by developer Harold Smethhills, and on Dec. 19, Douglas County filed its promised appeal of King’s ruling. — Rhonda Moore

Whole Foods Market in the Streets at SouthGlenn Pairs Up with TLC Meals on Wheels for Holiday Food Drive For the fourth consecutive year Whole Foods Market at the Streets at SouthGlenn has partnered with TLC Meals on Wheels in an effort to deliver groceries to those in need during their annual Grab and Give campaign. Grab and Give is a regional program for Whole Foods Market, stores work alongside generous customers to feed the hungry in respective local communities during the holiday months of November and December. According to Phil Miller, Executive Director of TLC Meals on Wheels, this partnership has appreciably increased his organization’s community impact. “The value of groceries contributed by Whole Foods is greater than any other single resource that supports our program,” he said. “Last year, Whole Foods Market SouthGlenn donated $48,000 worth of items!” The Grab and Give “care packages” fill a gap in the pantry of those who receive a hot lunch five days a week from TLC Meals on Wheels. “We’re always concerned about our clients having enough food for weekends and snow days, as well as for breakfast and supper,” Miller said. These groceries help to ensure that there’s food in the cupboard for those who can’t get to the store. The number of homes requesting groceries has grown from 75 to 125 during the past year. “Our goal is to raise $50,000

TLC Meals on Wheels Volunteers load up food items donated by Streets at SouthGlenn Whole Foods Market shoppers

in groceries for TLC Meals on Wheels this year! We recognize the need is growing in our community, together alongside our generous customers and TLC Meals on Wheels we are happy to make a difference in our local community” said FloraJane DiRienzo, Marketing and Community Relations representative for Whole Foods Market. “The Grab and Give program also opened up new opportunities for volunteer service beyond the

weekday meal deliveries long associated with our organization,” Miller said. Lacrosse, basketball, and wrestling teams from Columbine and Arapahoe High Schools, as well as mothers and daughters representing the Rocky Mountain Chapter of the National Charity League, are among the many volunteers who pack and deliver food to seniors and adults with disabilities. The groceries include such items as instant oatmeal, cereal bars, applesauce, tuna fish, peanut butter, macaroni and cheese, soup and green beans. Those who receive this food appreciate it, more than words can express. “If it wasn’t for the help and extra food, we would not have made it,” one woman wrote. “God bless all of you!” Another person said, “There have been many times when there has been very little food available to us and we have miraculously heard the doorbell with one of our dear TLC volunteers holding bags filled with unexpected food.” “TLC Meals on Wheels is honored by the trust Whole Foods Market Southglenn has placed in our organization as its partner,” Miller said. “We’re grateful to the enthusiastic employees and generous customers who have made it possible for us to share this food with those in need.”

OPINIONS / YOURS AND OURS

Stay on track during the holiday season Everyone is a little revved up during the holidays. Drivers are noticeably edgy and impatient as they motor around looking for those last-minute gifts. But whether shopping or celebrating with friends, the need to be grounded is important. Many of us find ourselves staying up later and possibly having one or two more alcoholic drinks than usual at gatherings. It can all seem so innocent and fun, but an extra drink here and there can result in tragedy. It’s one of those times of the year. Be aware of your behavior, and be ready to help others. Be careful and make the work of law enforcement easier. The Colorado Department of Transpor-

OUR VIEW tation, Colorado State Patrol and local law enforcement agencies will be conducting “The Heat Is On” DUI crackdowns during the holidays in order to prevent accidents. The group conducts 12 enforcement periods throughout the year. It reports the average cost of a DUI in Colorado is $10,270, and shares the sobering facts that there were 18 alcohol-related crashes in Colorado during the 2011 holiday season. Visit HeatIsOnColorado.com for an array of statistics of DUIs county by county.

And a new twist to the festivities this year involves the passage of Amendment 64, which means it is no longer illegal for people 21 and older to use marijuana in Colorado. We advise users to make themselves fully aware of the limitations of this change in law. For starters, colleges have made it clear that the substance is not allowed on campuses. Further, the amendment does not allow smoking in public places or places that can endanger others. Remember while driving, the state standard for marijuana use and other drugs, including prescriptions, is “impaired to the slightest degree” for a DUID (driving under the influence of drugs) violation.

We can only hope those over 21 who choose to smoke are mindful of the impact on others and that they stay safe and help others stay safe. So much needs to be ironed out — in law and in common-sense courtesy — in our great state, which has made itself a test case for recreational marijuana. So while we say happy holidays many ways on our pages, we also pause and urge our readers to play it safe. Part of the beauty of the holidays is truly in suspending our cares for a while and being grateful for each other, but before many activities commence there should be discussions about designated drivers and expectations. Prepare in advance.

New footprints in the snow Here’s to you, art teachers As I was walking my dogs the other day in the early morning hours, a couple of things caught my attention. You see, it had snowed the night before, but now the morning sky was bright and the sunrise was truly magnificent. So although the sunrise was the first event that captured my attention and got my day off to a great start, it was really the next thing that happened that morning that I would like to share with you. It was early in the morning, fresh snow the night before, and so as I walked with the puppies, we found ourselves making new footprints and paw prints with each step and stride. Okay, so maybe that part is normal and happens to all of us who are fortunate enough to see and experience the wonder of freshly fallen snow against a brilliant blue sky and sparkling sunrise. But that morning it was also fairly windy, and as we made the loop to return to the house, our footprints and paw prints were gone, as if we had never been on the path at all. You may have experienced the same thing walking along a beach at some time in your life, making footprints in the sand, and turning around to see that the tide lapping against the shore had erased the physical memory of your toes. What struck me at that moment was this … as we approach the New Year, we will all be able to create new footprints each and every day. We have gone on many journeys this year and we have been down a lot of roads. We have left our impressions in the ground everywhere we have gone and in the memories and hearts of all we have had the opportunity to meet. Some of those imprints and memories will last forever, while others will fade over time,

unless … unless we understand that we have the enormous privilege of making new footprints, paw prints, imprints and memories every minute of every day. Sure, maybe the wind or tide will come and cover our marks again with fresh snow or sand, but that only gives us a chance to have a greater impact on our own lives as well as the lives of others. So let’s remember with pride and joy all of the positive footprints we have made on this world, and at the same time we can even let the wind and tide wash away those imprints we would like to forget. Because from this day forward, from this minute forward, all of the snow is pure, the sand is smooth, and both are just waiting for us to leave our fresh new mark upon our families, the community, and the world. I would love to hear all about the footprints you have left on your journey that have been covered over and the new ones you plan on making at gotonorton@gmail. com. New footprints can lead to a better than good week for us all, will you join me?

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Valor subjected to unfair criticism

The letter by Doug Bernero concerning private vs. public school football programs must be rebutted. First, in full disclosure, while I am not a Valor parent, I am a parent whose children did attend Mullen High School. From that perspective, let me critique one by one, Mr. Bernero’s assertions. Yes Valor and Mullen and all other private schools recruit. In fact they recruit EVERY student, athlete and non-athlete. You see they do that because they HAVE TO in order to survive. The one advantage that often gets overlooked is that the public school funding is guaranteed through compulsory taxation on all. The private schools have to offer a value in and out of the classroom that is better than the public schools in order attract customers. The solution of having the private schools compete in their own league is not only naive but impractical due to the actual low number of private schools in the metro Denver area. Texas may have figured it out only because they are a bigger-population state that has more private schools in order to form their own leagues. All

schools, public and private, are under the same CHSAA rules and thus by definition are playing on an “even field” from that perspective. Mr. Bernero’s assertion implies all public schools facilities vs. private schools are unequal. Yet if you look closer at the public schools, there is inequity within that group. Care to take a look at Legacy Stadium next to Cherokee Trail? Really nice facility. Cherry Creek, a public school power in dozens of sports, seems to have very good facilities and in many ways superior to some private schools’ facilities. And finally, there is the assertion of financial aid somehow being another unfair advantage. I can only speak from my experience and observations at one private school, but as far as I can see, financial aid was always distributed based on need to ALL students, athlete and non-athlete. It’s very easy to make the assertion that financial aid only goes to the athletes and that is why they win, but it’s something completely else to be able to prove it. Greg Nierling Centennial

WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU If you would like to share your opinion, go to www.ourcoloradonews.com or write a letter to the editor. Please send letters to letters@ourcoloradonews.com.

Recently a friend told me that she was finally feeling comfortable in her own skin. I thought this was somewhat disturbing. The implication could be that she has, until now, been feeling comfortable in someone else’s skin. Yikes. The truth is, I hear the expression all the time and more than I would like to, generally when something involves Dr. Drew. It has become the handy in-therapy or post-rehab anthem of someone who may have had some problems with existence, co-existence, and self-confidence. You hear it a lot at AA meetings, where it could have yet another connotation. If you know what delirium tremens are, the DTs, you know that someone who has them certainly is NOT comfortable in their own skin, because their own skin feels like a whole lot of creepy crawlies. The DTs are “an acute episode of delirium that is usually caused by withdrawal from alcohol.” The capability of co-existence in this wacky world with a sense of self-confidence has become increasingly important, because if you slip through the cracks you might become one of those individuals we read about identified, generally by neighbors, as a “bright, troubled young man.” As a college teacher for over 30 years, in studio art where there is no place to hide like there is in lecture-only classes, misfit students could be picked out on day one. By the time a student had made it to advanced drawing, they were very comfortable in their own skin, almost to the point of arrogance. But in basic drawing it’s much different. Unless the student had been a high school art star, some were, the room on day one smelled of anxiety and apprehension. And like I said, there was no place to hide. I’d give a drawing assignment, they would work on it in and out of class, with periodic spot checks, and then, eight times each term, the drawings would go up on

the wall — like rectangles of their skin — and be scrutinized and evaluated. It was sort of like being on “Chopped,” the television show that features four chefs who are given a mystery basket of ingredients and expected to create something from them within a specified time period. Imagine an 18-year-old kid who just arrived from Highlands Ranch High School or ThunderRidge High School in a room full of strangers, and under my peculiar microscope, thumbtacking a self-portrait to the wall. Half the time the beginners didn’t make it past Basic Drawing I and II. The other half would “feel comfortable,” gain confidence, and move along. And a beauty in teaching is that we can make that possible, or at least more possible. I have done workshops with a number of Douglas County high school art teachers and I always was impressed by their dedication, intensity, and mastery of media and techniques. I was also aware that they were contributing, perhaps unknowingly, to that “skin” I have written about, that is so critical to an artist. If you are a high school art teacher out here I’m certain that you have given many of your students a sense of self-worth. That’s everything.

Fresh Fare by King Soopers opens Store has large produce section, grab-and-go meals made on site By Tom Munds

tmunds@ourcoloradonews.com A crowd turned out Dec. 12 as the Fresh Fare by King Soopers store at Kent Place opened for business. This is the first Fresh Fare by King Soopers in Colorado, and the doors opened at 6 a.m. to a steady parade of potential customers apparently eager to check out the new design. By about 3 p.m. opening day, the store was crowded. There was almost a need for a cop to direct traffic as customers pushed their baskets from section to section. One store employee said it appeared to be a very good opening-day crowd. The 30,000-square-foot store has a 8,000-square-foot mezzanine where food is prepared. Kelli McGannon, King Soopers marketing and public relations spokesperson, said the store will cater to shoppers seeking fresh fruits and vegetables from local growers, organic and gluten-free products and so-called grab-and-go meals made fresh daily in the store. There is a large meat and seafood department, and the deli includes a sandwich shop that also offers ready-toeat salads. The store will also be offering a breakfast menu, including build-your-own breakfast burritos from 7 to 10 a.m. There is a Starbucks Coffee location near the deli, plus an adjacent seating area. The store is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week and employs an estimated 180 people. The official opening was at 9 a.m. Dec. 12. There were some brief speeches and McGannon handed over a giant check for more than $161,000 to the American Red Cross. She explained it was the proceeds from a drive to raise money for the Red Cross during the summer’s wildfires. She made a number of introductions of store and company personnel. She then was joined by store manager Lee Lucero and the mayors of Englewood and Cherry Hills for the ribbon-cutting that was followed by offering cake to all comers. Laura Phillips came to check out the store and said it will now be where she shops. “This is such a nice store and it is only a few blocks from home,” the Denver resident said. “I love the wide selection of fresh produce and all the other amenities the store offers.”

I love the wide selection of fresh produce and all the other amenities the store offers.’ Laura Phillips She smiled and said she didn’t plan it but she just picked up beef stroganoff pot pies for dinner and another prepared meal for the next night’s dinner. “The meals look very good,” she said. “I can’t wait for our family to try them. If they are as good as they look, I’ll probably be back for more.”

Customers check out the large produce selection Dec. 12 as the Fresh Fare by King Soopers opened for business. The store at University and Hampden is the first of its kind in the state.

Lots of spots to take eve of your senses

Resolve resolutely Gain success with New Year’s plans By Rhonda Moore

rmoore@ourcoloradonews.com It’s the time of year for the ultimate transformation exercise with a longstanding tradition — the New Year’s resolution. The practice of making a resolution at the annual turn of the calendar is rooted in ancient civilizations, many of which had customs that mimicked the modern-day commitment to realize a self-improvement promise, according to the website 123NewYear.com. The site looks at ancient Babylonians and Romans, who would begin the New Year by making promises to their deities, and the knights of the medieval era, who took vows at the beginning of the new Christian year. The practice to resolve a positive change in the coming year is permanently ingrained

in modern customs.

Top trends

At the cusp of 2013, the resolution trends for the coming year include a promise to spend more time with family, adopt healthy lifestyle changes, reduce stress, manage money more efficiently and acquire a new skill. According to a study conducted by the University of Scranton Journal of Clinical Psychology, the top 10 resolutions for 2012 were: to lose weight; get organized; spend less/save more; enjoy life to the fullest; stay fit; learn something exciting; quit smoking; help others pursue their dreams; fall in love; and spend more time with family. The statisticians at the university estimate that 45 percent of Americans usually make a New Year’s resolution, and each year only 8 percent are successful in achieving their resolution. Based strictly on the numbers, it appears that the adage “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks” extends to the resolution busi-

ness. According to the university’s Dec. 13 publication, each year 39 percent of people in their 20s achieve their resolutions, while only 14 percent of those older than 50 do the same. The upside is that those who make an explicit resolution are 10 times more likely to attain their goals, compared with those who do not.

Tips for success

The experts at 123NewYear recommend the following steps to ensure you stick to your goal and experience success with your 2013 resolutions. • Start slow, one resolution at a time. • Be clear about your goal; people lose drive with vague resolutions. • Make a plan; being organized produces better results. • Don’t wait for New Year’s Day, plan early to be ready for a Jan. 1 start. • Learn from your past mistakes to avoid repeating them. • To maintain high motivation, be positive about your resolution.

Kim Dickey, Humberto Duque, Isabelle Hayeur and Ximena Labra come from Canada, Mexico and Colorado and will install continuations of their DIA work at the CVA in the Santa Fe Art District, opening on

the First Friday on Jan. 4 with a public reception. Kim Dickey, from Boulder, creates detailed ceramic gardens, such as her hedgelike “Inverted L Beam,” covered with hundreds of little leaves. It could be part of a Victorian maze, or is it a fairy garden — or a criticism of those who want to control the shapes nature forms? Humberto Duque of Mexico City assembles installations with everyday objects — kitchen timers here — which speak to the times spent waiting for something to happen, especially while watching a baseball game. Isabelle Hayeur is a Canadian artist who creates large landscapes from photo collages. The assorted sites may not relate, may be scarred and may show evidence of the lack of human caring for our environment that is too often evident. Ximena Labra, also from Mexico City, calls her work “public space intervention projects.” Her photographs of a spot where an event has recently occurred leave the viewer to figure out the story. Items may be carelessly dropped, littering a site. Imagine who has been there and what they were doing.

Kim Dickey, Inverted L Beam. Courtesy photo In addition to the work by the above four, CVA has invited some young artists from the La Alma neighborhood to exhibit invented toys and documentary photographs in the Emerging Artists Gallery, part of a project with the Boys and Girls Club and Denver Housing Authority. It’s hoped these young people will connect with contemporary art.

You can’t swing a streamer around town without hitting an event or venue where you can ring in the New Year. Here are some highlights of the evening festivities guaranteed to score a midnight smooch: • Light the night during Denver’s explosive fireworks displays at 9 p.m. and again at midnight above the 16th Street Mall, the Mile High City’s mile-long pedestrian promenade. Between the fireworks shows there will be DJs, live music, magicians, balloon artists and outdoor ice-skating, while horsedrawn carriages clatter up and down the street. For information on New Year’s Eve packages and deals at some of Denver’s finest hotels, ranging from the luxurious to the budget-friendly, go to www.milehighholidays.com. • The Children’s Museum of Denver will ring in New Year’s Eve like New York’s Times Square with ball drops every hour from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Children of all ages can count down the ball drops and make fireworks with their feet when they jump on massive sheets of bubble wrap. Free with admission. • The Denver Zoo is hosting “Bunk With the Beasts,” where parents can leave their kids to explore Zoo Lights and celebrate sleepover-style in a safe environment. The evening includes pizza, snack and breakfast for $65 per member or $75 for nonmembers. • The Colorado Symphony Orchestra will keep New Year’s Eve classy with a Vienna-themed selection of waltzes, polkas and classics beginning at 6:30 p.m. at Boettcher Concert Hall. Tickets are from $25 to $88. • The Crowne Plaza Denver International Airport Convention Center, Colorado’s largest hotel event space, is throwing a NYE Block Party with the takeover of seven hotels within walking distance. Tickets are $49 to $79. • Dance in the New Year at a massive celebration at the Colorado Convention Center, the biggest and most extravagant venue in Denver. Tickets are $50 to $150. • The annual White Rose Gala at the Hilton DoubleTree DTC is a night of living theater where you are part of a musical and theatrical performance. Tickets are $59 to $499. • 1515 Restaurant on 1515 Market St. is ringing in the New Year with a tantalizing tasting menu created by Chef Garren Teich, inspired by famed Chef Auguste Escoffier, who created the first-class menus for the Titanic. The early seating reservations taken from 5 to 6 p.m. Dec. 31 feature a decadent three-course menu for $40 per person (not including tax and gratuity), and late seating reservations beginning at 6 p.m. features four courses for $60 per person (excluding tax and gratuity).

REAL ESTATE AGENT SPOTLIGHT OF THE WEEK Eric Grauberger knowledge of the Denver market has enabled me to work What do you most enjoy doing when you’re not working? Broker Associate The Kentwood Company Cherry Creek Cell 303-668-3742 Office 303-331-1400 www.ericgrauberger.com Grauberger.eric@gmail.com Where were you born? Chicago Illinois, but I am a 5th generation Coloradan. How long have you lived in the area? Most of my life, with the exception of college and working for the Du Pont company in Southern California in the early 80’s. What do you like most about it? The people, the sunshine and our relatively clear air

with both buyers and sellers and have managed to sell well over $100 million in residential real estate during my career. I love working with senior citizens who are looking to either downsize or move out of their long time family home and transition into something more manageable for their golden years. What is the most challenging part of what you do? These days buyers are insisting that the house they are buying is up to date on all the inspection items, so it is imperative that I counsel my sellers to have the home in top condition prior to placing their home on the market to avoid a bad inspection report and consequent cancellation of the contract.

I love to travel, cook and read. I also enjoy walking my 9-year-old golden retriever twice daily. What is one tip you have for someone looking to sell a house? Listen to your Real Estate Professional. Have your home as in good of condition as possible. De-clutter, thin the closets, put what you’re not using in storage or have a garage sale. What is one tip you have for someone looking to buy a house? Work with a Realtor whom you feel you can genuinely trust, someone who isn’t looking to sell you any home, but the RIGHT home for you and your family. What is the most unusual thing you’ve encountered while working in Real Estate? After 23 years in the business, I find nothing unusual anymore. I have learned that I will learn something new everyday in life. The trick is to learn from your success and failures. Photos left to right: Eric Grauberger; Vacation in Machu Picchu, Peru.

PRIORITY OF LIENS

John Kokish Kokish & Goldmanis, P.C. Attorneys At Law 380 Perry St., #220 Castle Rock, CO 80104 (303) 688-3535 jkokish@kgattys.com

Q A

:Why and when should you know about the priority of liens on Colorado real estate?

: A lien is an encumbrance on a property. Colorado law provides that liens are prioritized in a certain order to determine payment rights and the foreclosure process. There are numerous ramifications on how various liens play out. Many of them are tricky, but you should know the basics, although you might eventually need the assistance of competent counsel. One basic tenet is that real estate taxes have priority over all other liens. If unpaid, they are the first lien and

can’t be extinguished by other liens. Second in line is the so-called super priority lien (“super lien”) created by the Colorado Common Interest Ownership Act (“CCIOA”) that was enacted by the Colorado legislature to allow homeowners’ associations to recover at least some back assessments when a homeowner defaults. The super lien, however, is limited to an amount equal to the monthly assessments that would have become due during the six months immediately

preceding either a foreclosure by the association or the holder of the first deed of trust (which may not be a first lien.) A deed of trust or mortgage is actually third in line, behind the real estate tax lien and the super lien. Fourth in line is the association lien or assessment of charges above and beyond those assessed for the six months preceding the initiation of the foreclosure. In other words, if the homeowner owes 10 months in back

assessments, six months falls into the super lien in second position and the remaining four months fall into fourth position. Next are second mortgages which fall to fifth position if the community is subject to CCIOA and a super lien. Finally, the sixth position, seventh and so on are any third mortgages, mechanics’ liens, judgments and other encumbrances against the property. A mechanics’ lien, or a lien for unpaid work on the house, actually

trumps all liens except the real estate tax lien, the super lien, and the first mortgage lien, and can even take priority over the first mortgage lien if the work was started before the first mortgage was filed. This exception provides protection for the worker who improved the property who can then foreclose without having to deal with the first mortgage or deed of trust. Recently, the super lien has created some nightmarish situations. An unscrupulous group of investors has been purchasing lien assignments from homeowners’ associations when they learn that a property is in financial trouble. This group then lays back, waits for the bank to foreclose on its first deed of trust and then swoops in after the foreclosure is complete to either collect the amount of the super lien, or worse yet, initiates a judicial foreclosure to try to steal the property from the unsuspecting bank or the new property owner. This has caused expensive litigation. There are countless other issues involving lien priorities. When in doubt as to how these lien priorities work, consult a competent real estate attorney to assist you before you even think about fighting that battle on your own.

ACC professor wild about West Broome honored by Kansas history buffs By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com Jeff Broome, a philosophy professor at Arapahoe Community College since 1985, and currently president of the Faculty Senate, leads a second life as a respected historian, author and lecturer. The Ellis County Historical Society and the town of Hays, Kan., honored him on Dec. 1 when he gave a talk there about George Armstrong Custer and the Indian Wars on the Great Plains. (Custer and troops were in Hays.) The mayor declared Jeff Broome Day. Broome has published two books: “Dog Soldier Justice” and “Custer Into Broome the West,” and has three more under way in various stages of completion. He says he has completed about 1,000 pages and will need another 1,000 to finish them all. Although his degrees are in philosophy, a direction he chose as an undergraduate at Southern Colorado State (now CSU at Pueblo) he says he entered college as a history major and was fascinated by Western history as a child. His great-great-grandfather, William A. Watson, homesteaded in Colorado in 1859 at a spot that became the town of Wetmore, starting the family’s history in Colorado. His own family moved to a brand-new Southglenn in 1960 and he recalls walking

Jeff Broome, a philosophy professor at ACC, was honored Dec. 1 in Hays, Kan., for his writing on the area’s history. Courtesy photo to Littleton’s Main Street with a new Christmas pool cue to play at Paul’s Pool Hall. After obtaining his B.A., he studied at Baylor for a master’s degree and began teaching at ACC. He completed his Ph.D. in philosophy at CU-Boulder in 1998 while continuing to teach. He returned to a love of history while frustrated with writing his doctoral dissertation. He visited Dan Larson’s Pioneer Books in Englewood, where he found a copy of “Sage Brush Dentist.” The author, William Frackelton, lived a generation before storyteller Pete Smyth of Littleton,

Broome said. The last three chapters gave the Indian view of a Custer fight when he met Indians. He was hooked on Custer’s fights. Then he met Jerry Green of the National Park Service and found that Custer was only a part of the Indian Wars story. “There were many roads to Little Bighorn — many of them not paved,” he observes. In 2003 he published “Dog Soldier Justice,” which was picked up by the prestigious University of Nebraska Press Bison Books in 2009. He has read hundreds of individual ac-

counts written by settlers who were attacked by Indians and “Dog Soldier Justice” is about Susanna Alderdice, who was killed — as were three of her children — by her Cheyenne captors, known as Dog Soldiers. In process is a book, based on contemporary accounts, of attacks on settlers following three roads west: the Santa Fe Trail, Platte River Road and Smoky Hill Trail. There is an index of 13,000 settlers who were attacked. Broome says he has found hundreds of unpublished accounts through multiple visits to the National Archives in Washington, D.C. — probably 60 to 75 days over the past 10 years. “I’ve probably spent $5,000 in copy fees over the years, and hauled papers home in an extra suitcase, or mailed them home,” he said. His book about the Cheyenne Wars and roads to Denver (1864-1870) will be published by the Logan County Historical Society in Sterling. The manuscript should be complete in January and he has someone who will make the maps he needs, so it could be out by summer. An additional volume grew out of a story he heard in Hays about a soldier who got involved in a drunken brawl with Wild Bill Hickok in 1870 in a local bar. He met some older men while in Hays and each had a different version of the story. Being a philosopher teaches Broome to search for the truth. Some historians have an agenda and report the facts that support it, whereas he uses original material, no matter what it says. Some of it focuses on atrocities by Indians on whites, while there has been a trend in recent years to focus on whites’ persecution of Indians. “You have to get everything you can get and build off that” he told a Hays newspaper reporter.

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com Fireworks, special dinner and dancing, sparkling outdoor light shows, music, outdoor activities such as hiking and birding — and some fun just for kids … Colorado families have many ways to welcome 2013. We name just a few. Kids might start with Noon Year’s Eve at the Children’s Museum of Denver from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. with five ball drops every hour and lots of confetti and noise. Or they might reserve a spot at the Denver Zoo to Bunk With the Beasts: a sleepover, visit to Zoo Lights and full breakfast before parents pick them up. Zoo Lights, Denver Botanic Gardens’ Blossoms of Light, Chatfield’s Trail

of Lights and Hudson Garden’s A Hudson Christmas light show are all open — a festive way for families to celebrate in advance of the midnight hour. The Colorado Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Andrew Litton, offers its annual “Night in Vienna” at Boettcher Concert Hall, with waltzes, polkas and classics. It starts early enough (6:30 p.m.) so the audience can walk over to 16th Street for the 9 p.m. fireworks display, which shoots them off from building tops along the mall. Fireworks are repeated at midnight, and many downtown hotels have dinner/ dance packages with overnight accommodations. One restaurant, 1515, will reproduce the elegant menu from the Titanic, planned by chef Garren Teich, influenced by Escoffier.

End of the line

The historic Burnsley Hotel, an iconic Capitol Hill building, closed recently after Denver developer Red-

Castle Rock

Peak Properties acquired it. The 17-story all-suite hotel was originally built as an apartment community in 1963. Shortly thereafter, the building was converted into a hotel and jazz club, whose owners included singer Ella Fitzgerald and actor Kirk Douglas. In 1969, philanthropists Joy and Franklin Burns purchased the property. “Mrs. Burns has decided to reduce the scope of her real estate portfolio and to enjoy more personal time,” said a press release. RedPeak intends to reposition the property to a luxury apartment community and invest more than $5 million to achieve that goal. “We are very excited to add this wonderful Denver story and trophy asset to our portfolio. This will further expand our central Denver apartment presence,” said Mike Zoellner, CEO of RedPeak Properties. RedPeak plans to begin renovation in early 2013. Preliminary plans include common area upgrades, life-safety improvements, mechanical system upgrades and complete unit overhauls.

Watch list

Restaurant trend watcher FastCasual.com recently posted its “2012: The five fast-casual executives to watch.” “They are all industry veterans, but some are new to the fast-casual segment, the concepts they represent, or both,” the report said.

Greenwood Village

Snagging the No. 1 position of the top five executives to watch in 2012 is Monty Moran, Denver-based Chipotle co-CEO. “Although Chipotle founder Steve Ells has long held the company limelight, it was the chain’s illegal workforce issue this past year that put co-CEO Monty Moran there as well,” the report said. “Chipotle was the target of a major federal crackdown on illegal employees, causing the company to lose more than half of its 900 workers in Minnesota and hundreds more in the Washington, D.C., and Virginia markets. Martin has become an outspoken advocate for immigration reform and has met this year with senators across party lines. “He has expressed to lawmakers that he needs access to a strong legal workforce as the company is expected to hire more than 100,000 employees over the next three years. … So far, the investigation into Chipotle’s hiring practices has cost the company more than $1 million in legal fees. In 2012, we expect Moran will continue to help shape a solution to the immigration debate.” To see the whole list, go to www. fastcasual.com.

,12 Colorado Community Media All-Star Teams All-Stars

Bruins’ Jaime named soccer player of the year Junior led Cherry Creek to 5A semifinals By Daniel P. Johnson

djohnson@ourcoloradonews.com If a goal needed to be scored by the Cherry Creek boys soccer team, odds were good that Miguel Jaime was going to be in the mix. The junior midfielder wasn’t hard to miss on the pitch in 2012. In addition to his team-high 16 goals (no one else on the Bruins’ roster had more than five), Jaime’s deft ball possession skills enabled him to often control the pace of match. Jaime was recently selected as the 2012 Colorado Community Media Boys Soccer Player of the Year. He was instrumental in helping guide the Bruins (11-6-2) to a spot in the Class 5A state semifinals, where they lost a 1-0 heartbreaker to Smoky Hill. A game earlier, in the quarterfinals, Jaime scored a goal, then set up teammate Kyle Ericson’s game-winning goal in a 2-1 double overtime game against Eaglecrest. “It was exhilarating, just unbelievable,” Ericson said. “(Jaime) played me a fantastic ball. All I had to do was put it in the net.” Jaime scored a goal in eight straight games early in the 2012 season and ended the season with seven goals in Cherry

Creek’s last six games. The junior will be one of many returning players for Cherry Creek in 2013. “I thought we got better as the year went on,” Cherry Creek coach Chelo Curi said. “We’re a young team; we only had two seniors on the field, so it’s a young team that has a lot of potential.”

Lutheran senior leads Lions to 2A state title; earns CCM All-Star player of year honors

Highlands Ranch senior is 2012 player of the year

By Craig Harper

sports@ourcoloradonews.com After playing in Taylor Sturms’ shadow for three years, Laura Beach became the face of Lutheran volleyball in 2012. And like Sturms, Beach shined under the spotlight. Sturms and Beach combined to lead Lutheran to the 2011 Class 2A state championship, the Lions closing the first season following the consolidation of Denver Lutheran and Lutheran Parker with a 13-match winning streak. And while both were named Class 2A Frist Team by the Denver Post, it was Sturms, a senior, who garnered player-of-the-year honors. But with Beach taking over in 2012, the Lions not only repeated as state champions, they attained perfection with a 28-0 record, capped by a 3-1 victory over previously unbeaten Simla in the 2A title match. Lutheran displayed excellent balance, but Beach’s leadership and superb all-around play stood out to make the 6-1 senior mid-

Highlands Ranch senior Hayden Sabatka played all season with a so-called target on his back but there were no tennis players in the state that were able to hit the mark. However, Sabatka has been tabbed by Colorado Community Media as the Tennis Player of the Year after winning his second consecutive Class 5A No. 1 singles title. “I heard a lot of people say there was a target on my back,” said Sabatka. “I wasn’t really worried. I don’t get too stressed out. I just try to stay relaxed and play relaxed.” Sabatka, who has signed to play next year at the

University of New Mexico, didn’t lose a set in the past two seasons but claims it was tougher winning his second state title with a 6-3, 6-1 win over 2010 Class 5A champion Spencer Weinberg of Grand Junction. “The season went pretty well,” he said. “I ended up not losing any matches and being able to get another win at state. The finals this year were harder than last year. “Spencer really came back strong and really improved his game and it was good to win my last year in high school.” Highlands Ranch finished second in the regionals and fourth at the state tournament and the Falcons success is something which Sabatka will remember. “Over the last three years our high school has added many new individual and team trophies to the tenTennis continues on Page 23

sarily what made her special. “Laura was a team-first player,’’ Oates said. “She always did what she thought would make the team better.’’ A tri-captain with seniors Sturms and Taylor Gager in 2011, Beach earned a role of greater leadership as a senior co-captain with Jordyn Sturms, and that quality was never more evident than in the statechampionship match. After a split of the first two sets, Lutheran starters Whitney Dettmering and Connie Olson suffered injuries when the collided in the third set. Both players eventually returned to the court, but Oates said Beach noticed the Lions were shaken up by the incident and that “she immediately took control and calmed the team. Her confidence and composure allowed us to regroup and go on to win the set and the match.’’ “I had to do that because I was the captain,’’ Beach said. “We came into the huddle and said a prayer for the girls who were hurt. We (Beach and Sturms) said this could help us focus and that we had to get it done.’’ Beach made sure it was a fait accompli. She had 25 of the Lions’ 58 kills and half of their 12 blocks against Simla. “It was a good (match for me) but it wasn’t our best as a team,’’ said Beach, who had 61 kills in four matches at state. “I think I improved from a leadership aspect,’’ Beach said.
