Brewery taps Littleton as new home Breckenridge to build 12-acre  facility along river By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@ourcoloradonews.com Breckenridge Brewery’s announcement that it plans to relocate its Denver brewery to Littleton has city officials excited, to put it mildly. “I’m buying the first round!” City Manager Michael Penny said. Breckenridge is the fifth-largest brewer based in Colorado and growing. For the third straight year, it posted more than 20 percent growth, with 2012 results reaching 30 percent — stretching

the limits of its current space at 471 Kalamath in Denver. “Once we were aware that they were interested, we spent a lot of time just talking to them about the direction the city was going, explaining about all the work we’ve done, showing them the city council goals, talking about the comprehensive plan update and generally just conveying all the excitement and enthusiasm for the future,” Penny said. “It’s what they want to be part of. They also really liked the location.”  Assuming all goes as planned, Breckenridge will break ground on a$20 million project this fall near the South Platte River. It is expected to open in the fall of 2014 on 12 acres north of Aspen Grove and south of Hudson Gardens,

adjacent to Reynolds Landing — exponentially increasing the river corridor’s cool factor, says Penny. “With the vitality of Main Street and the powerhouse of Aspen Grove, the addition of Breckenridge Brewery will shift Littleton toward a local destination driver,” he said. “Having a brewery, along with the other amenities we have, will begin to turn Front Range heads south, and have people saying, ‘You know what, instead, I’d rather go to Littleton’. … it’s a status statement which helps define the future of Littleton.” The Feb. 1 announcement came on the heels of one made by Alamo Drafthouse, Aspen Grove’s new movie theater, which firmed up its grand opening date to March 25.

the skills and confidence necessary to stay in their own homes and be contributing members of society.” They learn cane travel and mobility, cleaning techniques, sewing, crafts, organization skills and more. Even something as basic as dialing a telephone can take on new dimensions as seniors gradually lose the sight they’ve relied on their entire lives. “It’s interesting when you have always been sighted and you have to cook,” said Margaret Cross. “It’s hard to know when something’s done.

Littleton City Attorney Kirsten Crawford was placed on paid administrative leave, apparently at her request, after city council met in an hour-long executive session Jan. 29. Mayor Debbie Brinkman asked Crawford and City Manager Michael Penny to wait in another room during the session. When they reconvened, Councilor Bruce Stahlman made a motion to place her on leave, pursuant to her request, until further notice. The motion directed her to remain available Crawford ​ to the city during normal business hours. Councilor Phil Cernanec seconded the motion, and it passed unanimously. Penny said no acting city attorney has been named, and Kristen Schledorn remains as assistant city attorney. Asked what the way forward looks like for the office, Penny replied: “Kirsten Crawford is on voluntary administrative leave, so there is currently no ‘way forward’ for the city attorney’s office. Ms. Crawford is still employed by the city as the city attorney.” “This is a personnel issue, and I have no comment,” was Brinkman’s only response. Crawford was appointed on March 6, 2012. “The city council is thrilled to welcome Kirsten as our city attorney,” Brinkman said at the time. “She is a skilled litigator with exceptional experience in municipal law. Over the past three years, she has done exemplary work as our assistant and then acting city attorney. Kirsten is as passionate about her work as she is committed to Littleton, and we are looking forward to a

Seniors get cookin’ at center for blind Men impress women with batch of chili By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@ourcoloradonews.com The senior men at the Colorado Center for the Blind got together Jan. 29 to prove they’re just regular guys. “The women are cold, and we’re trying to warm them up,” deadpanned Joe Triplett. So they cooked up a big batch of chili that did the trick, sautéing and chopping,

stirring and spicing with the best of them. “Fantastic,” proclaimed the women. The center in Littleton offers training and classes for vision-impaired people of all ages, with a positive philosophy that with proper training and opportunity, blind people can compete on terms of equality with their sighted peers. “The Colorado Center for the Blind is committed to changing the experience of older blind and visually impaired persons from frustration to independence,” reads CCB’s program description. “With education and training, these seniors can obtain

We, the people, are in this together As President Obama’s words rang out from Capitol Hill into my family room, as the camera panned over the thousands bearing witness to his second inaugural address, I found myself moved. By the significance of the tradition, its symbolism and shout to the world that regardless of who was elected, this transition from one presidential term to another would be a peaceful one. By words that spoke of equality for all. And by faces that seemed at once jubilant and expectant. “We, the people …,” President Obama repeated throughout. “We, the people …” But as I watched and listened, enveloped in the moment’s oneness, a question slipped in: Do we all feel as if we are the people? Those three words have become a mantra of what America represents, taken from the document this country was built on: “We, the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.” It is a lofty ideal that at times has been shoved into the shadows by such abuses as slavery and inequality of rights because of gender, race and religion. That we have amended some of those wrongs is an inspiring tribute to our foundation. But we are, most definitely, a work still in progress. “‘We, the people’ is our vision for America,” says Amy Montague, a social studies teacher for 15 years whose passion for history lights her eyes and fills her voice. “‘We, the people’ is what we are always aspiring to be.” Empowered toward unity. Even when it is difficult to achieve. Stephanie Noll is a social worker for Mi Casa Resource Center, which serves the

underemployed and unemployed in the Denver area. She works daily with women and men struggling to overcome financial, educational and other challenges in their pursuit of stability. “When people don’t have access to be able to meet their basic needs,” she says, “they don’t feel included as the ‘we’ who are taken care of in society.” Something as simple as language can exclude people from the circle, says Alejandra Harguth, a naturalized U.S. citizen born in Mexico who works with immigrants in Littleton. “Just because you were born somewhere else doesn’t mean you are different from the person next to you” in terms of human value. Moe Keller, a Democrat who championed mental health, child care and developmentally disabled issues during her years in the Colorado House and Senate, believes that, overall, the country’s “general welfare” isn’t being promoted as the Constitution asks. “We need to invest and believe in ourselves. I don’t think we do that right now,” says Keller, who taught special education for 25 years and remains active in the mental health arena. “Even at the federal level, we don’t,” referring to the legislative fight over Hurricane Sandy disaster relief and other political challenges to civic and social programs. “I believe in economic patriotism,” she says. “We have an obligation and a duty to

pay taxes because democracy is not free. Taxes are not evil. They are what keeps us going as a country.” To Bob Beauprez, a buffalo rancher and former Republican congressman who ran unsuccessfully for governor in 2006, President Obama’s “we, the people” means “we, the government.” John F. Kennedy had it right, Beauprez says, when he proclaimed in his inaugural address, “‘Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country.’ It’s bigger than us. The cause is bigger than us.” But the elemental essence of “we, the people” as an instrument of cohesion and change gives us the tools — despite differing philosophical views on government — to work toward that dream of unity. The teacher, the social worker, the politician and the community activist see evidence of it every day. Steve Burkholder, a former mayor of Lakewood, talks about the sales tax increase of 2005 that led to the building of a new mall and increased revenue during tough financial times. The city asked its residents, “What type of city do you want?” Burkholder remembers. “We can give you this type of city at 2 percent sales tax or we can give you this type of city at 3 percent sales tax. This is your choice. We had this dialogue about it and we talked about it and we tore down their favorite mall …. The citizens were a part of it. That was ‘we, the people.’ ” He talks about the importance of establishing inclusivity across all areas, from ethnicity to gender to income level, and excitedly mentions an early intervention educational program that will soon begin in the city. “We have this opportunity to make a major difference.” That kind of empowerment of others, he says, is “we, the people.” Keller highlights community service

organizations such as Optimist, Rotary and Kiwanis, which regularly provide scholarships to young people for higher education. One, in particular, recognizes students who have stayed in school despite great adversity. “They want these people to be successful,” Keller says. “This is ‘we, the people.’ ” Beauprez, although saying he doesn’t agree with all its tenets, points to the Tea Party movement. “The people were saying loud and clear, ‘Something’s really screwed up here … and we have to get off our couches and do something about it,” he says. “That kind of citizen action … it’s an extremely healthy ‘we, the people’ kind of statement.” Noll, the social worker, isn’t sure those who are marginalized ever fully feel included in society as a whole. But the success of her program’s participants — representing such a broad diversity — gives her hope. “There is a sense of empowerment in that process,” she acknowledges. “People do regain a sense of belonging.” Amy Montague, the teacher, looks to history for reaffirmation. If it’s read just right, Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation can still move her to tears. The power of the words and the foresight and courage it took to write and deliver them take her back to the nation’s roots and remind her of its strength. The people. “People have to remember where we came from and that we can get through whatever is happening,” she says. “We can, as a people, make it.” Our founding fathers believed we could. I do, too. We just can’t ever forget the “we.” Ann Macari Healey’s column about people, places and issues of everyday life appears every other week.

Anonymous letter halts clerk appointment Ethics committee to review candidate’s personal history By Deborah Grigsby

dgrigsby@ourcoloradonews.com An anonymous email has put the brakes on Arapahoe County’s plans to appoint a new clerk and recorder to replace Nancy Doty, now serving her first term as District 1 Commissioner. Sent just after noon on Jan. 27, and addressed to the entire Board of County Commissioners, the mysterious missive from “Jane Doe” suggests the board take a closer look at the life, integrity, conduct and work history of Matt Crane, Arapahoe County

Deputy of Elections, and one of three candidates vying for the appointment. A statement from the county on Jan. 28 confirmed the BOCC postponed the decision “in light of information that was submitted anonymously” Crane regarding one of the candidates. County Attorney Ron Carl will forward the information to the county’s Ethics Committee for review. “I look forward to this, going before the ethics committee,” said Crane. “We’ve done nothing wrong and this is all old news that has been examined before when I worked for the City and County of Denver.”

The three-page letter paints a questionable picture of Crane, pointing to his previous troubles while serving as operations manager for the Denver Election Commission in 2006, when voter check-in software crashed, leading to three-hour lines at some vote centers and an estimated loss of more than 20,000 votes due to the delays. The letter also calls out a “cozy relationship” Crane had with Lisa Flanagan, a Sequoia Voting Systems employee, whom he married. “My wife and I met when we both worked in the Secretary of State’s office in 2001,” Crane explained. “Our relationship pre-dates my employment with the City and County of Denver and any association with Sequoia Voter Systems.” Sequoia Voting Systems is the provider

of the software that experts fault with Denver’s 2006 Election Day debacle. A 2007 investigative report by CBS Evening News charged Sequoia with providing the low-quality punch cards to Palm Beach County, Fla., for the 2000 election that were believed to be the cause behind the infamous “hanging chad” controversy. On Jan. 23, the board interviewed three candidates: Crane; Cindy Acree, a former state representative; and Susan Beckman, former Arapahoe County Commissioner. The person selected will fill the remainder of Doty’s term, which expires Jan. 15, 2015. Crane called the anonymous letter “nothing more than mudslinging.” “I look forward to the process and I will, absolutely, be an open book,” said Crane. “I’ve got nothing to hide.”

Historic district wants more members EPA has officials

preparing to act

Preservation board looks at adding incentives By Jennifer Smith

Stormwater proposal drawing fire from municipalities

jsmith@ourcoloradonews.com City officials want more of downtown Littleton to join the “cool kids club.” That’s what Andrew Graham, planning board member, called the 60 percent of property owners who have joined the optional Main Street Historic District. He’s been working with the Historic Preservation Board to identify incentives that might lure more folks in, and he says it’s time to set a threshold that would tip the district to be mandatory. Should that happen, all properties deemed “contributing” would be subject to regulations particular to the district, as well as eligible for benefits like less-stringent parking requirements and grants for facade improvements. It’s a notion that’s been discussed before, usually with pushback. During a discussion last March, Councilor Bruce Beckman cautioned against renewing the battle waged before the opt-in compromise was reached, when several property owners objected on the basis that mandatory inclusion trampled their rights to maintain their buildings as they saw fit. “I don’t have to stick my hand that far into that beehive to know there are bees in there,” Beckman said at the time. But HPB members say many who have opted in don’t think it’s fair that some can drag down the property values of all, so they surveyed business owners who haven’t joined to find out what might encourage them to do so. “We want to raise all boats,” said Chuck Reid, HPB chair. “We believe the whole is greater than its parts.” Suggestions include commemorative plaques, offering grants for interior work, escrowing grant funds for future use, tax rebates, waiving sewer and water fees, snow removal and architectural services. HPB created a brochure de-

Historic buildings line Littleton’s Main Street. File photo signed to entice holdouts. It points out that the process to join was recently streamlined, and notes that MSHD sales taxes increased 69 percent since it was established in 2005, compared to 17 percent citywide. “Uniform standards help protect and increase business investment and property value,” they wrote. “Being a part of the historic district identifies owners as understanding the vision for the future of downtown Littleton.” Reid also addressed a request council made last March to consid-

er expanding the district to Alamo Avenue or even beyond, saying the board is comfortable with the current boundaries. Alamo’s character is different enough, he said, that it wouldn’t make sense — it’s predominantly standalone buildings as opposed to Main Street’s mostly connected properties. Mayor Debbie Brinkman asked the board to flesh out the suggested incentives and their desire to make the district mandatory. “I would like to see deeper study on that,” she said. “Come back with a proposal and a road map.”

Former Aurora Mayor Ed Tauer is on a mission to form a coalition to fight new stormwater regulations the Environmental Protection Agency is set to propose. “The idea is to create a chorus of local voices to say clean water is non-negotiable, but this answer doesn’t work for us,” he told Littleton City Council on Jan. 29. The EPA has been working on new national rules for three years, since settling a lawsuit alleging the agency wasn’t sufficiently protecting Chesapeake Bay. Though still drafting the rules, the agency’s website says they will likely expand the area subject to federal regulation, develop specific and uniform requirements for municipalities throughout the country, and require retrofitting of existing systems in some cases. To retrofit an existing site would cost up to $50,000, according to Tauer’s data, and to do a two-lane road would cost about $250,000. Tauer fears the rules will stunt economic growth, as one goal is to establish specific requirements to control stormwater discharge from new development and redevelopment. Construction generally causes an increase in impervious areas where water can’t soak into the ground. “This additional stormwater volume, as well as the introduction of pollutants such as fertilizers, sediments and

deposition of vehicle emissions contributes to increased stormwater impacts,” reads an EPA fact sheet, which notes many such projects are outside of currently regulated areas. “This is an unfunded mandate to the extreme, because it impacts businesses, not just the jurisdictions themselves,” said Councilor Phil Cernanec. The National Association of Clean Water Agencies agrees, writing on its website that different regions of the country have different needs. “NACWA believes the ultimate decision on how performance standards should be structured is regional and community-specific, and individual municipalities and stormwater permittees need sufficient flexibility in their development,” it reads. “… Any new development and redevelopment requirements included in the stormwater rule proposal must take into consideration the varying geographic, climactic and hydrologic conditions found in different regions of the country.” Tauer agrees. “Taking care of our water is part of who we are as Coloradans,” he said. “It’s not about what’s best for the environment, because we don’t have just one environment.” Councilor Peggy Cole wondered what the EPA’s definition of “clean” water would be, and Tauer said that has not been established. “They didn’t say monitor, they said let’s come up with new rules even though we don’t know if we have a problem,” he said. He noted legal action cannot be taken until the rules actually are enforced. “You can’t sue them because they passed a dumb rule, you have to establish standing,” said Tauer.

Firearms on school grounds bill struck down Legislation would have allowed employees to carry concealed guns By Vic Vela

vvela@ourcoloradonews.com A bill that would have given school boards the ability to determine whether employees could carry firearms on school properties has become the first guns-related legislation to be struck down this session. The bill was voted down Jan. 28 by a 3-2 vote by the Democratic-controlled Senate Judiciary Committee, following about three and a half hours of public testimony - much of which came from supporters of the controversial legislation. The proposed law would have opened the door for school employees to carry concealed handguns on campus, provided they had a valid permit to do so, and so long as their local school boards gave them permission to do so. Recent gun-related mass shootings in Colorado and across the country were invoked during testimony from both supporters and opponents of the bill. “It’s a tragedy that keeps happening over and over,” said Sen. Scott Renfroe, RGreeley, one of the sponsors of the bill. “And frankly, it’s clear that gun-free zones don’t work. Sen. Ted Harvey, R-Highlands Ranch, also a bill sponsor, said that his wife, who is a teacher, and children “are sitting ducks” at their schools because they have no way to defend themselves if a school shooting

Scott Renfroe, left, and Ted Harvey listen to questions from the Senate Judiciary Committee on their bill that would have allowed school boards to determine whether employees could carry concealed handguns to schools. Also at the table was Karen Wick of the Colorado Education Association, who opposed the legislation. The proposal was killed in a 3-2 committee vote. Photo by Vic Vela breaks out. “Gun-free zones only work for the lawabiding citizens,” he said. “The criminals, the bad guys, don’t care.” Bethany Christiansen, a teacher from Greeley, spoke in support of the bill. Christiansen said that she loves her students and that she would “take a bullet for them.” She

said she would like the opportunity to carry a concealed weapon with her to schools, so that she could better protect her students. “If I was able to save one life, it’ll be worth it,” Christiansen said. Republican Senators Steve King and Kevin Lundberg voted to advance the bill. But the bill isn’t going anywhere. Three

The Support given by the U.S. Small Business Administration through such funding does not constitute an express or implied endorsement of any of the co-sponsors' or participants' opinions products or services. The Colorado SBDC is a partnership between the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade, the U.S. Small Business Administration, Colorado's institutions of higher education, and local development organizations.

Democratic senators — Lucia Guzman, Irene Aguilar, and Jessie Ulibarri — voted against moving the bill forward. Ulibarri said he had “grave concern” for this type of legislation because of the “unintentional consequences” that could come from more guns being brought into schools. Ulibarri said he worries that his own children would get caught in the crossfire between a shooter and untrained school personnel toting guns. “They may be a crack shot, a crackpot,” Ulibarri said of school employees having guns. “I don’t know.” Earlier in the day, supporters of gun legislation held a rally on the west steps of the Capitol. One of the speakers, Rep. Rhonda Fields, D-Aurora, a strong supporter of gun control, told a cheering crowd, “Enough is enough,” when it comes to gun violence. “I don’t want to see another mother have to bury their children because of gun violence,” Fields said. “I am sick and tired of the bloodshed.” Also before the hearing, Senate President John Morse, D-Colorado Springs, said the bill “isn’t a solution” to the issue of gun violence in our communities. “It’s not great policy,” Morse said. “Adding guns adds shootings and I’m for fewer shootings.” Morse, a former cop with the Colorado Springs Police Department, said the bill would have created “a culture of violence and we need to create a culture of non-violence.” Morse said that he doesn’t “see a magical solution” to dealing with guns issues, but said that Senate Democrats are working on putting together a package to address those issues.

A Democratic state lawmaker is sponsoring a bill that he says will “keep homeowners in their homes,” but it’s one that has not garnered any support from Republicans thus far. House Bill 1017 would allow homeowners who have modified their mortgage interest rates to keep those same rates if their loans are transferred to another bank. The bill’s sponsor, Rep. Steve Lebsock, D-Thornton, said during a recent legislative committee hearing that banks sometimes do not properly communicate when a person is in the pro-

cess of modifying a loan. When the loan transfer to another servicer occurs, homeowners end up receiving “a Dear John letter,” notifying them of the transfer. But, “in a minority of cases,” the loan ends up getting transferred without the new servicer even knowing that the loan has been modified. Therefore, the new bank refuses to honor the modified rate, leaving homeowners confused and without recourse, Lebsock said. “Essentially, the left hand doesn’t know what the right hand is doing,” Lebsock said. That happened to Daniel Graham of Aurora, who tes-

tified during a recent House Business, Labor, Economic and Workforce Committee hearing about his “nightmare” experience of getting caught between two banks and two separate mortgage rates. Graham said that a bank recently foreclosed on his home — one that had been in his family for 34 years — after it refused to honor a modification that he and a previous bank had agreed on. “Trying to find help from people when you’re going through this? It’s not out there,” Graham testified. “People, please. This is something that is needed. I am going through this nightmare right now.” The bill is on its way to the Senate after it passed the House of Representatives Jan. 29, with Democrats supporting it in a 3728 party-line vote. Rep. Bob Gardner, R-

Colorado Springs, said he voted against the bill in part because he “couldn’t get a straight answer as to how big of a problem this was.” Gardner said it is a “feel good” bill that doesn’t really do anything. “I’m not going to vote for it because it sounds like a nice thing to do,” Gardner said. Lebsock said he was “troubled” that the bill didn’t garner a single Republican vote in the House, especially after representatives from Colorado banking and realty groups voiced their support of the bill during the committee hearing. “It’s very puzzling to me that we didn’t get bipartisan support,” Lebsock said. But Gardner said the freshman representative shouldn’t be too surprised. “He’ll be puzzled about a lot more things that happen here,” Gardner said.

Measure would get law out of bedroom Legislators target old statutes on adultery, immorality By Vic Vela

vvela@ourcoloradonews.com With apologies to Hank Williams Sr.: Your cheating heart may tell on you, but that shouldn’t result in troubles with the law, too. At least that’s what two Democratic legislators believe. A bill that would repeal a longstanding Colorado law that prohibits adultery — as well as repeal a separate law that makes it a crime to promote “sexual immorality” — was introduced in the state House of Representatives last week. “Adultery should be a matter between a person and their spouse,” said Rep. Daniel Kagan, D-Cherry Hills Village, the bill’s House sponsor. “It

is wrong, in my view, to make it the state’s business to inquire into who I slept with last night.” Yes, it is against Colorado law to cheat on one’s spouse, and it’s been like that since the 1900s. To be sure, it is a toothless law, seeing as how there is no penalty associated with it. But a separate law that the bill aims to repeal, “promoting sexual immorality,” does carry with it a potential misdemeanor charge. An example of a violation of this law would be when a hotel worker rents a room to an unmarried couple, knowing that they’re going to use the room to have sex. “It has been prosecuted eleven times in the last three years,” Kagan said of the sexual immorality law. “This bill keeps the police out of our private business.” Kagan is sponsoring the bill with Sen. Pat Steadman, D-Denver. They are the same two lawmakers who unsuccessfully attempted to repeal the

laws during a previous legislative session. The attempt to revive the bill is being panned by at least one Republican legislator. Rep. Libby Szabo of Arvada had some fun on Twitter, saying sarcastically that the bill is “another display of the (Colorado Democratic Party’s) focus on jobs and the economy.” Szabo elaborated on her tweet in an emailed statement to Colorado Community Media. “It just makes you wonder what the legislative priorities are of two senior members of the Democrat legislative caucus when they’re more interested in running legislation concerning sexual immorality while more than 200,000 Coloradans are without a job,” Szabo wrote. But Kagan insists that this bill “does not take away from our efforts to create jobs and strengthen the economy.” “We can walk and chew gum at the same time,” Kagan said.

Normally fairly docile, Sewell said they often learn to emulate the violence they witness. “The gorillas are actually fighting each other,” she said. “I think what needs to happen is peace.” Following the Rwandan genocide in 1996, the area has been somewhat more peaceful. Sewell said this actually has been a problem for the gorillas — as people return, they encroach upon

the animals’ habitat. Sometimes they get caught in snares meant to catch food. Sewell showed a photo of a young gorilla that lost an arm that way. Also, farms operate right up to the park borders, providing what the gorillas consider a food source. “The gorillas, they have no borders,” said Sewell. “It’s going to end horribly.” But you wouldn’t know it by watching the creatures, according to Lorenz. The males can get up to 400 pounds, and the adults mostly just relax, eat and sleep. The youngsters, though, are much like human children. “It was like watching my kids play,” Lorenz said. “They’re wrestling and tossing each other around.”

Most importantly, it is respectful to its neighbors.” Glen Van Nimwegen, the city’s director of community development, said neighborhood meetings held to gauge public opinion went well. Because a rezone is required, public hearings will be held before the planning board, tentatively set for Feb. 25, and city council, likely on March 5 and March 19. They’re requesting a planned-development overlay, which will restrict some of the allowed uses in the light-industrial district. After that will be building plan review, permit issuance and construction, said Van Nimwegen. Designed to complement the rural feel of the river corridor, plans include several rustic buildings, a hops field in the foreground, farmhouse restaurant, general store and a sunny beer garden. “We asked Breckenridge to really think about the river as they get further along in their design plans, and be the first development to really acknowledge that they have

a great resource to the immediate west of them,” Penny said. The brewery will boast an energy-recovery system, solar lighting and waterreclamation processes, among other green features. “Protection of the river corridor is extremely important, and precautions are being taken to cleanse any storm water that may leave the site,” said Van Nimwegen. “The brewing process itself is a natural process and does not require robust environmental systems. The facility will bring 60 to 75 jobs to Littleton, with about 25 of those being new positions, said company spokesman Todd Thibault. It will contribute sales taxes to the city coffers from restaurant sales and the general store, but it’s largely an industrial development that manufactures craft beers and sells them wholesale across the country. In 2012, it produced 52,000 barrels of beer, ranging from its popular Vanilla Porter to its seasonal Christmas Ale. The new facility will allow for production to increase to more than 120,000 barrels. “Our brewery was born and raised in Colorado,” said Todd Usry, brewmaster and director of brewing. “We have our Colorado mountain home [in Breckenridge], and soon, a Colorado country spread along the river. Our Denver brewing operations opened in 1992, so it’s tough to leave Denver, but we’ll still have our two thriving restaurants there.”

OPINIONS / YOURS AND OURS

Let’s pass on another round of drinking bill The “drinking with Dad” bill that was killed in committee last week made for lively conversation around water coolers and dinner tables. We don’t mind that it failed — we are gripped by so many other matters at the Statehouse — but we stop short of calling the bill ridiculous. The failed notion — sponsored by state Sen. Greg Brophy — would have allowed parents to share alcoholic drinks with their 18-to-20-year-old children at restaurants or bars, ideally preparing them for the responsibilities of becoming 21. While it was pointed out several other states allow the practice, the committee gave little ground and defeated the measure 4-1. We agree with an oft-mentioned counterpoint that restaurant servers would face the onus of verifying parents and children before serving the 18-to-20-year-olds. The

OUR VIEW extra duty could put the servers in a tough spot as noted by state Sen. Evie Hudak, DWestminster. Maybe it would be a big pain or maybe not, but for now we agree with keeping a clean line of law in the public arena concerning the drinking age of 21. And we side with those who say it’s enough that parents have the legal opportunity to serve and teach their children about alcohol at home. Home is an excellent place to cover alcohol and responsible drinking. Further, it’s a fine place to learn how to prepare for the public arena with good

Navigating the moguls of life Have you ever watched a really accomplished skier as he or she skied the moguls? They make it look easy as they seem to gracefully maneuver the bumps, have no wasted motions, all muscle groups are working in harmony, and they just look technically perfect and simply incredible. Then, have you ever observed an intermediate skier tackling that same terrain? They move slower, seem to try and go around each mogul, stop frequently, and in some cases find themselves sliding down the mountain, out of their gear after trying a little harder or getting a little more aggressive. And then they get up, usually with a little assistance, and continue to work their way down the mountain. In either case, whether we are extremely proficient or working on getting there, when we have spent some time in the bumps, and move on to find one of those intermediate groomed blue cruisers, we feel better about ourselves and our ability, we may even feel awesome as our confidence soars. I am not sure about you, but for me I have experienced this same feeling in other areas of my life as well. No one is an expert at anything before they learn a skill, develop a talent, and take the time to practice. It is in the practice where we make the most strides and advancements of our skills and talents.

But opening doors was only the first part, I then had to learn how to speak to senior level executives and present in big intimidating boardrooms. The first few times I

skills in assigning designated drivers, as well as being aware one drink — depending on factors such as beverage and weight of the person — can put someone on the wrong side of the mark in a Breathalyzer test. As for the other side of the argument, we certainly accept the valid view of state Sen. Ted Harvey, R-Highlands Ranch. As the only vote for the bill, he said when his son turns 18, he will be able to fight in Afghanistan but will not be able to have a drink with his parents at a restaurant. That is a tough shot. Harvey’s comment echoed a debate that has decidedly diminished since the National Minimum Drinking Age Act of 1984. This strong-arm bill passed by the Congress subjects states with a minimum age for drinking that is below 21 to a 10 percent decrease in annual federal highway funds.

It’s Illegal to manufacture or import them, but they can still be sold until they are all gone. And don’t worry, the Light Bulb Constables are not going to break down your door. I don’t think the disappearance of incandescent bulbs will affect people the way the disappearance of Twinkies did. It’s hard to get too sentimental about light bulbs. I didn’t suffer for very long when they stopped making cassettes either. The newer helical, integrated, compact fluorescent lamp (CFL) is niftier looking, even though it does have more surfaces for dust. I’ve never been very good at dusting my light bulbs. Now I will be even worse at it. I need someone to shed some light on this: “CFLs radiate a spectral power distribution that is different from that of

In her guest column, Rep. Kathleen Conti mentions “bipartisan support” for bills coming out of the Legislature, yet all the bills mentioned are sponsored by fellow Republicans. And, while saying “there’s definitely a discussion worth having concerning gun control,” all the focus then turns to the issue of mental health.

incandescent lamps. Improved phosphor formulations have improved the perceived colour of the light emitted by CFLs, such that some sources rate the best ‘soft white’ CFLs as subjectively similar in colour to standard incandescent lamps.” Right. I guess we can’t go back again. But we can go back to vinyl. You can still buy record players and you can still buy vinyl records. Some people swear by the quality of vinyl over CDs. I gave all of mine to my friend Greg. He treats them with a lot of respect. Records used to come in big paper sleeves. Paper is a wood-based product, and paper can be abrasive.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Bipartisan efforts needed from Rep. Conti

can tell you felt like I was a beginner who found himself on a double black diamond ski run loaded with moguls. I was coming unglued and definitely wasting motions, wasting time, and losing more than I was winning. Each prospect was different and when I found myself having to present to smaller groups or someone in a less intimidating role, I found myself gaining confidence. The more I failed in those larger meetings, the more I learned. The more I practiced with smaller customers the better I became at selling to larger clients and in complex selling situations. There is an old saying that goes something like, “The fruit we enjoy at the mountain top was grown in the valley.” And it is so true in all areas of our lives. So whether it is getting into the moguls or bumps on the mountain or just stretching yourself a little more, remember that our growth does happen in the valley. I would love to hear all about your times in the valley and on the mountaintop. Together let’s make it a better than good week.

It was a brilliant way for proponents to keep the age at 21 because most states, like Colorado, so need transportation dollars for highways and aging bridges. But it’s simply not right. The drinking age, at its core an issue of individual liberty, should not be held hostage to the pocketbook issue of transportation dollars. Interestingly, incongruent laws that put voting and military service at 18 and drinking alcohol at 21 crudely reflect the true nature of coming of age where attaining maturity doesn’t happen on a certain birthday or day for each individual. But just maybe someday these laws will better align to clearly and legally mark adulthood while surrounding responsibilities and efforts — such as reducing drunk driving — are just as vigilant as ever in striving to balance our safety with our liberties.

Military service as a path to citizenship Recently, I introduced the H.R. 435, Military Enlistment Opportunity Act. This legislation seeks to expand military enlistment opportunities and create a system that mutually benefits the armed services and individuals with temporary immigration status. Under my bill, individuals who have resided legally in the United States continuously for at least two years as well as the Deferred Action Childhood Arrivals would be permitted to sign up for military service alongside American citizens and lawful permanent residents. The DACA program was recently created by the Department of Homeland Security to give employment authorization to certain young people who came to the United States illegally as children. This legislation provides a commonsense solution to help solve two nationally important issues. First, the bill provides a new group of willing, capable and skilled applicants to serve in the military. Second, it creates an opportunity for individuals with conditional immigration status to naturalize through military service, giving them permanent status subject to the same rights and obligations as naturalborn citizens. As a member of the House Armed Services Committee, one of my goals for this

legislation is to help the military ensure our national security goals are met by enhancing the available pool of qualified individuals. The military currently requires that recruits be American citizens or lawful permanent residents. However, we have a regrettable situation today where a majority of native-born Americans can’t meet the standards for military service because of some disqualification: they are overweight, have a criminal record, a history of drug or alcohol abuse, don’t have a high school diploma, or they can’t get a passing score on the entrance exam. A 2009 study conducted by a group of retired military leaders entitled “Ready, Willing and Unable to Serve” concluded that 75 percent of young adults between the ages of 17 and 24 do not qualify for military service. Additionally, there is a need to expand

often swap out the paper sleeves for something more archival. Are we going to have light bulb pirates? Music is pretty easy to pirate, but it might be quite a chore to pirate 60-watt light bulbs. Where are you going to do it? I think once they’re all gone, they’re all gone. Are there songs about light bulbs? Or poems? Yes. I found both. But none of them is very memorable. Have you ever turned on a light and had it light for an instant and then burn out? Right then it’s kind of poetic. A final flare. We have the same thing prolonged in another way every autumn, when a green leaf turns yellow and orange, and then falls brown. I am having a hard time getting too nostalgic about this. Most of my incandescent bulbs aren’t bare, so I don’t see them, just their benefits. I didn’t get very nostalgic about Twinkies either. They are nasty things to begin

with. Vulgar little sponges filled with who-knowswhat? Just don’t touch my Red Vines. After Jan. 1, 2014, those born will some day have to be told about light bulbs just like my parents had to tell me about tin toys and candlestick telephones. Technology moves things in and moves things out very fast these days. The humble light bulb had a good, long lifetime. Edison filed for the patent in 1879, and it was granted on Jan. 27, 1880. I invented something last summer and pitched it to an outfit that takes an idea and develops it on behalf of the inventor. For an arm and a leg. I had neither. They promised not to manufacture it. But I have a hunch I will see my bright idea at Home Depot some day. Craig Marshall Smith is an artist, educator and Highlands Ranch resident. He can be reached at craigmarshallsmith@comcast. net

William “Bill” Prink

Rosemary B. Pocius

William “Bill” Prink, age 78 of Lynden, WA, passed away Jan. 1, 2013. Bill graduated from Littleton High in 1954 and is survived by his brother Harold, wife Rickie, Son Mark wife Sonja, grandchildren Kristen (husband John Bomhof) Shanna, Ben, Brianna and Jordan Prink and great granddaughter Kyah Bomhof.

Rosemary B. Pocius born June 15, 1922 and passed away December 16, 2012. A private memorial service was held January 26, 2013 at St. Mary’s Church in Littleton, Colorado. Loved and missed by family and friends.

the pool of those eligible to serve because of the increasingly advanced technical requirements of the U.S. military. Rapidly growing areas like cyber warfare and ongoing analysts needs require the skills that foreign students studying in the United States can bring to the military. These visa holders bring abilities like critical language skills and advanced technical degrees that will increase the proficiency of our military. My legislation will also provide a path for young people in the newly created DACA program to be naturalized through military service. It makes sense that these individuals, who have the desire and ability to serve in the U.S. military, should be given the opportunity to do so. There have been over 154,000 young people who have been accepted under the DACA program, and these patriotic individuals should have the chance to honorably serve their country and become naturalized citizens. Current law states that any individual who legally enlists and serves in the military for one year is naturalized. During wartime the naturalization is immediate. My bill would extend this benefit to DACA individuals. All enlistees, upon joining the military,

incur an eight-year service obligation. Naturalization only becomes final and irrevocable after five years of honorable service. Therefore, it is important to highlight that the grant of immediate naturalization is subject to rescission if the individual does not complete the service requirements or is discharged under less-than-honorable circumstances. Although there will be a larger debate this year about immigration and the necessary changes that must occur to ensure that our legal immigration system is effective, the Military Enlistment Opportunity Act is smart legislation that takes a small but positive step forward by allowing certain individuals to serve our country in the military and earn U.S. citizenship. Moreover, this bill will aid our military by providing a larger number of skilled recruits to ensure our national defense capabilities are not diminished by a shrinking recruiting base. It should be an easy decision for my colleagues in Congress on the left and the right to support the Military Enlistment Opportunity Act. I am hopeful we can solve these problems together. U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman serves Colorado’s 6th Congressional District.

Leo Ernest Kopetsky, Sr.

July 10, 1918 ~ January 4, 2013 Leo Ernest Kopetsky, Sr., of Sun City West, AZ, passed away January 4, 2013 at a Newport Beach, CA hospital. The body was cremated and a burial and memorial service is planned for later in the Spring. Leo was the youngest of 17 children. He was born July 10, 1918, in Ordway, SD. He was the son of John Joseph Kopetsky and Agnes Fisher. He attended Barnard High School in South Dakota and graduated as class valedictorian in 1938. He was captain of his football and basketball team. Leo was awarded a scholarship to a business school in Grand Island, NE, where he was the first one in his family to attend college. He married the love of his life, Vera Lahr, at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Aberdeen, SD, on July 7, 1941. To this union they were blessed with four children.

They farmed in the Frederick, SD area until 1955 and then moved to Aberdeen, SD, where Leo worked out of the Aberdeen Post Office. In June of 1968 he was able to trade assignments with a mail carrier from Littleton, CO. As a Littleton mail carrier, he received numerous awards for his exemplary service and was much appreciated by the patrons on his route for his happy-golucky attitude and always having a smile on his face. He retired in 1988 from the Littleton Post Office. In 2005, Leo and Vera moved to Sun City West, AZ. After his wife’s passing, Leo spent much time with his

devoted son, Curt, who was a member of the West Coast Challengers. Leo accompanied Curt on many of their excursions and was affectionately known as “Pops” by the club’s super members. Leo was very energetic and loved to take long morning walks, tend his garden, watch the Pacific Ocean waves and visit Catalina Island. Leo had a very special place in the family’s heart. He was a kind, gentle, caring father, grandfather, and great-grandfather. He always welcomed family and friends with a big smile, a helping hand, and made them feel very special.

Survivors include sons; Leo Kopetsky, Jr., and his wife, Carol, of Yankton, SD, and Curt Kopetsky of Santa Ana, CA; daughters, Gloria, and her husband, Don Goeden of Sioux City, IA, and Sandra and her husband, Bruce Weber of Scottsdale, AZ; grandchildren; Gregg, Clark, and Ken Koptetsky, and Jennifer and husband, Wayne DeStefano, and Scott Weber and wife, Melissa; great-grandchildren; Alexander, Briana, Aubrey and Dominic DeStefano, a sister, Martha Hine, of Aberdeen, SD, and brother-inlaw, Leonard Lahr and wife, Dorothy, Frederick, SD, and many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his wife Vera, his parents, and seven brothers and eight sisters. Our beloved “Dad” will be dearly missed by his family.

Walk among Ice Age giants ‘Mammoths and Mastodons’ on display in Denver By Sonya Ellingboe

IF YOU GO The Denver Museum of Nature & Science is located at 2001 Colorado Blvd., Denver. Hours: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., with certain extended days. Check dmns.org for complete schedule. Tickets:  $21/$17/$12 for a timed ticket for the general public. (Includes admission to the museum.)  Members: $7/$6/$3. Free parking.

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com Colorado’s exciting “Snowmastodon Project,” which surfaced in 2010, will be represented by a selection of fossils, a video about the 2010 discovery and information about the science developing from the site at Snowmass. Museum volunteers will clean and prepare fossils from various Colorado dig sites. The “Mammoths and Mastodons: Titans of the Ice Age” exhibit runs Feb. 15 through May 27 at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science. The exhibit, originating at the Field Museum, will include life-sized models of Ice Age animals, as well as fossil tusks and skulls. Visitors will learn to distinguish between mammoths — weighing up to eight tons, with tusks up to 16 feet long — and mastodons, their shorter, stockier cousins. A model of Lyuba, a 42,000-year-old

baby mammoth discovered in 2007 by a reindeer herder and his sons, will help visitors understand the science behind Lyuba and how it aids in our understanding of modern-day elephant relatives, which are now struggling for survival. Lyuba’s eyelashes, ears and internal organs were found. Man entered the picture and was another predator of these beasts. Spear points, cave painting and other prehistoric art illustrate the interaction between humans and mammoths and mastodons. Interactive exhibits include: balancing the weight of a tusk or trunk; a look into a cave in Southwest France to see reproductions of prehistoric cave paintings and learn about them through interactive games; an “Elephant Vocal Communication” interactive and an “Excavation Station” touch cart.

In October 2010, a bulldozer operator working near Snowmass uncovered bones of a young female mammoth. During the next 10 months, the Denver Museum of Nature & Science conducted the largest excavation in its 112-year history, finding more than 6,000 bones of 41 kinds of animals. Included: mammoths, mastodons, ground sloths, tiny rodents, camels, deer, horses, giant bison and even tiger salamanders. The high-alpine ecosystem had protected the specimens found in this most significant scientific discovery. A 40-member team from the museum, the U.S. Geological Survey and academic institutions from North America and Europe is studying samples of bones, plants, insects , sediment and biomolecules. The study will continue until collective results are ready for publication. Lead scientists Kirk Johnson and Ian Miller have published “Digging Snowmastodon,” which is available today. A “Nova” television special, “Ice Age Death Trap” was shown on PBS. Related programs and lectures, found on the museum’s website, include an IMAX film: “Titans of the Ice Age 3 D IMAX” ongoing at $10, $8.

Jennifer Bouton returns to Colorado Guest artist will perform with the Denver Concert Band By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com Jennifer Bouton will return to Colorado to perform as guest artist with the Denver Concert Band, conducted by Jacinda Bouton, in a Feb. 16 concert at the Lone Tree Arts Center. She will play “A Lindesfarne Rhapsody for Flute” by British composer Philipe Sparke. It’s a new work in her repertory and one Jacinda Bouton asked her to perform. It’s well written, one continuous work and written for an ensemble, which is helpful because sometimes there’s a balance problem, she says. It should be satisfying for the band members also. The piece begins with a cadenza for the flute and she enjoys performing it.

IF YOU GO Lone Tree Arts Center is at 10025 Commons St., Lone Tree. The concert is at 7:30 p.m. Tickets: $12/$7 for 16 and under. 720-509-1000 (Lindesfarne is an island off the northeast coast of England which was a pilgrimage destination, a romantic spot. Sparke is a prolific contemporary composer who is in demand internationally.) Bouton grew up in a musical family and graduated from Highlands Ranch High School in 2000, after studying music there with Mark Wurst. “There were always music lessons,” she recalls and lots of little home performances with her sister, who is a singer. Her father, Art Bouton, teaches at the University of Denver’s Lamont School of Music and performs frequently in the area, including with the new Colorado Repertory Jazz Orchestra, which he organized.

It has performed at Lone Tree Arts Center this year. When Jenny is home for the holidays, they play flute duets — “a really special connection,” she said. She received her BFA from the Peabody Conservatory and an MFA from Carnegie Mellon University. Her teachers included Jeanne Baxtresser, former Principal Flute of the New York Philharmonic, Alberto Almarza, Marina Piccini and Pamela Endsley (Colorado Symphony). She was with the Virginia Symphony in Richmond for three years prior to joining the Milwaukee Orchestra in 2011 and has apeared nationally and internationally. As a special encore, she and her father will perform “Flower Duet” from the opera, “Lakme,” which she has often performed with her sister, she said. The arrangement for two flutes is by her teacher, Jeanne Baxstresser. The band’s program, called

Mayor Hancock busts a move

Last week, Mayor Michael B. Hancock fulfilled the final element of a friendly wager made with Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake before the Divisional Playoff game between the Denver Broncos and Baltimore Ravens on Jan. 13 (and we all know how that ended up ... sniffle). Under the terms of the wager, Mayor Hancock sent a box of dry aged “cowboy cut” ribeye steaks from Lombardi Brothers Meats to Rawlings-Blake. The mayor had additionally agreed to perform the famous Ray Lewis pregame dance but was sidelined by an injury. Until now.

Feeling safe in Centennial

For the eighth year in a row, Centennial was ranked as the safest city in Colorado with a population of more than 75,000, according to CQ Press’ annual publication: City Crime Rankings for 2012 to 2013: Crime in Metropolitan America. Centennial ranks 41st out of 432 cities.

“This eight-year accomplishment as the safest city in Colorado is truly remarkable,” said Mayor Cathy Noon. “It reflects the dedication of the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office to keep the city safe year after year. This is a great accomplishment and privilege for all who live, work and play in Centennial.” Other Colorado cities and their rankings include Arvada (59), Longmont (73), Fort Collins (116), Boulder (120), Westminster (147), Greeley (173), Thornton (175), Aurora (235), Lakewood (259), Colorado Springs (278), Denver (328) and Pueblo (354). The crime rate rankings of the cities and metropolitan areas are calculated using six crime categories: murder, rape, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary and motor vehicle theft. The rankings include all cities of at least 75,000 residents that reported crime data to the FBI in these categories. City Crime Rankings is one of five annual reference books published by CQ Press that analyze and rank states and cities in various categories.

REAL ESTATE CAREERS MARKETPLACE SERVICE DIRECTORY

REAL ESTATE AGENT SPOTLIGHT OF THE WEEK very entrepreneurial and tech savvy, and I support other local games and see them progress from year to year. As a family, Jeff Jackson business people whenever I can. we enjoy movies, hikes, and spending time in the mountains. I REALTOR®

How long have you worked in Real Estate? I have been in this business for 13 years, enjoying helping clients attain their real estate goals.

7887 E Belleview Ave Suite 175 Englewood, CO 80111 Direct: (303) 514-7621 www.jeffjacksonhomes.com Where were you born? I was born in Lincoln Nebraska. Every time I mention my hometown, people ask me if I am a Husker Fan. I always tell them when Colorado plays Nebraska, I am never disappointed with the outcome, I like to keep them guessing! How long have you lived in the area? 33 Years. I went to Fairview High School in Boulder and graduated from the University of Northern. Colorado.

What is your specialty and what does that mean for the people you work with? My specialty is marketing homes with a proven system that is guaranteed to get homes sold in 60 days or less – which has consistently outperformed the MLS averages. What is the most challenging part of what you do? Our contracts, laws, and lending standards are constantly changing. We need to constantly take continuing education classes so we can serve our clients at the very highest level.

What do you like most about it? I love living and working here because of the exceptional people in our community. The business climate here is

What do you most enjoy doing when you’re not working? Spending time with my wife and two sons is my favorite pastime when I am not working. My sons both play sports, and I love watching their

am an avid fly-fisher, wing shooter and skier. It has been great to introduce my boys to these sports as well as everything else our beautiful state has to offer. I also enjoy cooking, reading and spending time with extended family and friends. What is one tip you have for someone looking to sell a house? Don’t leave selling your largest investment up to chance. Interview until you find an experienced Realtor with a proven marketing strategy and track record who is willing to guarantee their service in writing. What is one tip you have for someone looking to buy a house? Don’t settle for a home, get what you want. The current market has a low inventory of quality homes. Competition is high for quality homes that often sell over the list price. Hire an experienced Realtor who will help you find the type of home you want, for the very best price. Experienced agents have networks that can help you find the home you are looking for which may not even be listed in the MLS. This can help put you in position of getting the home you want at the very best price. What is the most unusual thing you’ve encountered while working in Real Estate? Wow, hard to answer this one. It seems every day can be a little unusual in this business. While showing homes, I have been nipped at by dogs, videotaped by a neighbor who thought I was breaking into a home, and was even invited to stand at a new clients’ wedding a week after closing.

WE BELIEVE ENERGY STAR IS JUST A STARTING POINT.

WE ARE NEW TOWN BUILDERS. R

We’re inspired by classic Colorado architecture and passionate about cra smanship. Yet we geek out on the latest technology and sustainable building techniques. The thicker walls in our New Town Builders’ high performance homes allow for 60% more money-saving insula on than in a conven onal home, and our roof is 6 inches higher than a typical home, so we can get 2 ½ mes MORE insula on in the a c. This reduces heat loss, and more importantly, reduces your energy bill! Talk to us about building your (surprisingly affordable) energy-efficient new home.

Factors that might hurt a home’s value N owadays, homeowners looking to sell their homes know it’s not as easy to do so as it might have been a few years ago. A struggling economy has made it difficult for many homeowners to sell their homes for a price they’re comfortable with. But the sagging economy is not the only thing can make it difficult to sell a home. In fact, a host of other things, some obvious but some not so obvious, can hurt a home’s value as well. Location: A home’s location is arguably its best or worst selling point. A home in a great location won’t be as difficult to sell as a home in a bad neighborhood. But location goes beyond a neighborhood’s reputation, especially in recent years. Homeowners who live in a neighborhood or development with many foreclosures might find those foreclosed properties are hurting their own home’s value. Lots of foreclosures could negatively affect

a neighborhood’s reputation, which might make a home within that neighborhood less attractive to prospective buyers. Appearance: A home’s appearance is another obvious variable that might affect its resale value. Homeowners might want their home to reflect their own individuality, but that’s not going to help when the time comes to sell the home. If the exterior paint is out of the ordinary, then it might be wise to choose a more traditional or conservative color before erecting the “For Sale” sign out front. The same goes for a home’s interior. If the interior design is especially unique, a more traditional interior decor might help the home sell faster. Size and style: Another thing to consider when selling a home is its size and style. A home that stands out on the block might be an attention-grabber, but that’s not always attractive to prospective buyers. For instance, a colonial sitting in the middle

of a street filled with contemporary homes will stand out, but likely for all the wrong reasons. It will likely appear dated and out of place, which is something buyers might not want. In addition, if the home is considerably larger or smaller than the surrounding homes, then this could hurt its value. Non-conformity: In many ways, conformity is not considered an admirable trait. But when selling a home, conformity could make the difference between a home selling quickly or remaining on the market for months if not years. When shopping for a home, buyers often shop in certain neighborhoods and towns and might see many different homes within a given ZIP code. Homeowners with homes that don’t conform to others in the area might find it difficult to sell their homes. For instance, homeowners trying to sell a two bedroom home in a neighborhood filled with three bedroom homes might

notice their home’s value is not as high as that of surrounding homes, regardless of the neighborhood or how similar the home’s exterior is to surrounding homes. Age: Older homes might have character and a sense

Douglas County School Board Vice President Dan Gerken resigned the week of Jan. 7, and already has stepped down from his seat. He cited growing family and work obligations. Board President John Carson said the group will begin the process of finding his replacement during the Jan. 15 board meeting. Gerken was elected to the board in 2009, and his term was set to expire in November. He did not return calls for comment, Gerken but Carson said there is no mystery surrounding his resignation from the education reform-focused board. “We depend on people being willing to take a lot of time out of their lives and work and families to do this,� he said, noting board members invest at least 20 hours a month to the unpaid post. “Dan has served selflessly in that capacity for over three years now. I greatly appreciate what he’s done for our school district.� Carson said Gerken first approached him about resigning shortly after the new year. “I tried to talk him out of (resigning), but he made his decision,� he said. Though the board has often been criticized for its fast-paced reform efforts, Carson said he doesn’t believe that was a factor in Gerken’s resignation. “If you run for office, you have to be prepared for that,� he said. “Speaking for myself, the reason I got involved in public education was to make some changes in public education that I think have been needed for a long time. I know Dan felt that way as well.� In seven years on the board, Carson said this is the fourth vacancy filled by appointment. “It’s not an infrequent occurrence,� he said. The board has 60 days to fill the empty seat. Any candidate must live in Gerken’s district — District D — which extends from Castle Pines to the southeast corner of the county. Potential school board candidates must be at least 18 years of age, a 12-month resident and registered voter of the district, and have no direct or indirect interest in district contracts. All current school board members are registered Republicans, but the office is officially nonpartisan. “We’re just looking for people that are interested in improving public education, continuing to make our school district the best, and keep making it stronger,� Carson said. Gerken, a father of two, lives in Castle Pines with his wife, Gina. He is chairman and co-founder of Gerken Taxman Interests, a commercial real estate investment and development company.

Stoveall lifts Bruins to season sweep of Arapahoe Cherry Creek senior puts up 41 in two games against Warriors By Craig Harper

sports@ourcoloradonews.com Something about Arapahoe this season brought out the best in Cherry Creek and Sam Stoveall. “It’s always a tough one, but it’s one of my favorite games to play,’’ the Creek senior said Friday night after the Bruins completed a season sweep of the Warriors with a 46-43 road victory. “We love playing Arapahoe because they play the same style as us.’’ Until this season, it was tough love for Creek. The Warriors - 25-game winners with trips to Class 5A’s Final Four each of the last two seasons - took six straight from the Bruins the previous three years. “We haven’t beaten Arapahoe twice since they got in the league (in the 2008-09 season), so that’s a real thing,’’ said Creek coach Mike Brookhart. “And more importantly, it’s a league win.’’ It also vaulted Creek (10-7, 5-3) past Arapahoe (12-5, 4-4) into fourth place and a game behind tri-leaders Eaglecrest, Cherokee Trail and Grandview one game into the second half of the Centennial schedule. The seventhranked Warriors, who had won three straight before losing to Cherokee Trail and the Bruins this week, will likely fall out of the top 10. “It’s great for our confidence, especially getting them twice because they’re a good team

and they’re going to win more games,’’ Stoveall said. The rematch was every bit as tight as Creek’s double-overtime victory on Jan. 9, where Stoveall scored 21 points and hit a game-winning 3-point basket with 15 seconds left. This time, Stoveall scored 20 points - his seventh game in the 20s this season - and was part of a Creek defense that denied Arapahoe a potential game-tying 3-pointer. Arapahoe rallied from four points down with 3:20 left despite losing center and second-leading scorer Matt Glasscock (6 points) on fouls at the 4:58 mark. Evan Walsh (5 points) and Mitch Albyn (team-high 14) each got the Warriors within a point before Bruins center Graham Pingree (6 points before fouling out late) scored inside to make it 46-43. Arapahoe missed two 3-pointers, but got a reprieve when Creek’s Griffin Parr missed the front end of a one-and-one with 31.9 seconds left and Pingree was called for an offensive foul with 26.6 seconds left after rebounding the missed free throw. But the Bruins’ defense hounded Walsh and Brendan Till - Arapahoe’s two best 3-point shooters - and Walsh’s attempt with Will Bower’s hand in his face missed the mark. “We talked about that,’’ Brookhart said. “We knew who was going to shoot.’’ Arapahoe often lives or dies by the 3-pointer, and Friday it was the latter. The Warriors shot 2-of-15 (.133) from beyond the arc but were 16-32 on 2’s. “Our halfcourt defense is our strong suit,’’ Stoveall said. “We really take pride in it, and it

works. That’s why we were able to pull it out there at the end.’’ “We didn’t shoot well tonight against a very good team that played good defense,’’ said Arapahoe coach Dan Snyder. “We played really hard and I thought their team played really hard. We just didn’t execute enough, and it was a lot of little things. There were some critical plays that we didn’t make.’’ Arapahoe built the game’s biggest lead, 1813, early in the second quarter, but Creek rallied behind Stoveall to tie it 20-20 before the Warriors took a 24-22 halftime lead. Creek took the lead for good in the third quarter, with Stoveall scoring seven of his team’s 13 points and the Bruins crashing the offensive boards for seven second-chance points in a reversal of the first half when Arapahoe had eight second-chance points. “We got killed (on the boards) in the first half,’’ Stoveall said. “To me, (second-half rebounding) was the main reason we were able to take the lead, because we took away their second possessions.’’ Creek also worked its way to the foul line more than Arapahoe, going 11-of-15 to the Warriors’ 5-8, much to the chagrin of Snyder. “I’m really proud of the kids,’’ Brookhart said. “I thought we persevered. I though we really handled things down the stretch: we made foul shots, we got the ball to the right kids at the right time. Kids like Quentin Welu (7 points) and Caesar Jones stepped up coming off the bench. And Griffin Parr (7 points) was really, really good. And, obviously, Sam Stoveall.’’

Sports roundup: Crory’s hat trick powers Eagles By Jim Benton

jbenton@ourcoloradonews.com Ponderosa’s Williams brothers are primed for tonight’s Continental League championship dual wrestling match against Chaparral. Heritage won, Mountain Vista notched two victories and Valor Christian split two games in last week’s Peak Conference hockey games. Connor Crory had a hat trick in Heritage’s 6-2 win over Palmer. Five different players scored in Mountain Vista’s 5-1 triumph over Bishop Machebeuf and Tanner Gillis scored a power play goal at the 4:52 mark over of overtime in the Golden Eagles’ 3-2 win over Lewis Palmer.

Mountain Vista outshot Lewis Palmer 35-12 in the chippy contest that saw a total of 64 minutes in penalties called, 50 against Lewis Palmer and 14 against the Golden Eagles. Matt Joseph had Valor’s lone goal in a 7-1 loss to Fountain Valley. Dylan Wheeler and Caleb Hance each had two goals in a 9-2 win over Rampart. Conference leading Heritage improved its Peak record to 10-1-0 and the Eagles are 14-2-0 overall. Mountain Vista stands at 9-2-0 and 13-3-0 while Valor is 7-3-1 and 11-4-1. Heritage and Mountain Vista play Saturday night at South Suburban Ice Arena. RANKINGS - Mountain Vista

remained No. 2 in the Class 5A boys basketball poll released Monday while ThunderRidge climbed to No.3. Valor Christian slipped to No. 5 in the Class 4A boys poll and Lutheran was third in the Class 2A rankings. Four Continental League teams are in the Top 10 of the Class 5A poll. Regis Jesuit is top ranked with Highlands Ranch No. 2. The teams meet Wednesday night at Regis. Rock Canyon moved up to No. 4 while Chaparral is No. 8. Arapahoe is sixth in the poll. Lutheran is still No. 2 in the Class AA girls poll but is closing the gap in the voting on topranked Akron. Both teams are unbeaten.

Girls hoops: Grizzlies continue to battle injuries By Jim Benton

jbenton@ourcoloradonews.com ThunderRidge girls coach Bill Bradley can’t win for losing. After compiling a 4-7 non-league record, the injuryplagued Grizzlies reeled off four straight victories in the Continental League before No. 2 Highlands Ranch clobbered ThunderRidge, 74-36, in a league game last Saturday night in the Falcons’ gym. Senior Taylor Williams, whose has signed to play at Long Beach State, is getting her timing and confidence back after missing 13 games with a knee injury. Senior center Megan Yoney broke her hand prior to the Christmas break and sophomore guard Jessica Zweifel is sidelined with a separated shoulder. “Every time we turn around we get somebody hurt,” said Bradley. “We get Taylor back but we haven’t had Megan since Christmas with a broken hand and then Jess who had been starting but we haven’t had her the last two games because of a separated shoulder. She’ll be out five or six weeks. “We’re having trouble getting consistency with all our injuries.” Still, ThunderRidge (8-8) is only a game behind the Continental League leaders. Top-ranked Regis Jesuit (16-1), No. 2 Highlands Ranch (14-3) and No. 4 Rock Canyon (15-2) were tied with 5-0 league marks going into this week’s action. The following is a capsule glance at last week’s action. LITTLETON - The Lions lost by 35 points to ThunderRidge and by 22 to Rock Canyon. Four players tied for scoring honors with four points against the Grizzlies while Stacey Zuppa scored 10 points to lead Littleton (7-10) against Rock Canyon. HERITAGE - The Eagles (2-15) saw their losing skid reach 11 games with losses to Chaparral and Castle View. Heritage, Littleton and Ponderosa were all 0-5 going into Tuesday night’s action. VALOR CHRISTIAN - The Eagles (9-11) build on a 16-point halftime lead in a 65-35 win over Wheat Ridge. Kendall Bradbury scored 19 points and Caroline Bryan 13 in the victory.

Sometimes a loss can be the proverbial blessing in disguise. Alex Buechler hopes and thinks that may be the case for the Arapahoe girls basketball team, which saw its perfect season come to a halt Jan. 25 at home against Grandview. The Warriors rebounded last Wednesday night with a convincing 53-16 homecourt victory over Cherokee Trail. Arapahoe couldn’t keep the momentum going, however, and fell at Cherry Creek 46-44 Friday night. The Warriors now find themselves at 6-2 (15-2 overall) and tied with the Bruins at the halfway point of the Centennial League race. “It definitely motivated us to work even harder,’’ Buechler said of the 6548 setback to the Wolves. “I think the loss was good for us, going in 14-0. We definitely learned a lot from that loss. I think it was one of the best games they’ve ever played, and we really didn’t play up to their level.’’ Arapahoe’s depth and constant defensive pressure were no match for Cherokee Trail (8-8, 3-4) and easily offset a two-point second quarter that coach Jerry Knafelc attributed to “a lit-

tle bit of a hangover’’ from the Grandview game. The Warriors shot 1-of-12, committed six turnovers and squandered almost half of a 14-2 lead after the first quarter (16-9 at the break). “It was a pretty short discussion at halftime: have them go out and shoot baskets,’’ Knafelc said. “We got goodlooking shots; we just missed them. They relaxed a little as soon as we knocked the lid off.’’ Buechler got it going, draining a 3-pointer on the first possession of the second half. Arapahoe scored 22 unanswered points before the Cougars, who missed their first 11 shots of the period to go with nine turnovers, finally broke through with a rebound follow with 14.5 seconds left in the third quarter. Buechler, who was scoreless in the first half, finished with a team-high points. Karlyn Johnson had six of her eight points in the third quarter. Stacie Lukasiewicz also had eight points and Kera Riley added seven. Johnson got into early foul trouble for the second straight game she played just five minutes against Grandview - a disturbing and uncharacteristic trend for the 5-11 senior. “She’s never been that kind of player, but she’ll fix that,’’ Knafelc said. “She was a big difference against Grandview. It hurt us defensively because of the matchups, and offensively, too. As you saw, she came in and was ind of a catalyst tonight.’’ Despite its cold second quar-

ter, Arapahoe shot 40 percent from the floor, an improvement from the 35 percent against Grandview in its second-lowest scoring game of the season (37-35 win over Cherry Creek where missed free throws down the stretch made it close). But defense is what makes Arapahoe go, and a young Cherokee Trail squad (one senior saw court time Wednesday) seemed overwhelmed. The Cougars made one field goal in each quarter. They shot 13.8 percent from the floor and committed 38 turnovers. Junior point guard Hannah Sparks, the leading scorer at 12.7, went scoreless until the final minute, and senior Nikki Duresky (9.5 average) had four points. Cherokee Trail managed to work the ball inside when not turning it over, but couldn’t get shots to fall against Arapahoe’s trio of 6-3 Mikaela Moore, 6-3 Savanah Nedlson and 6-2 Molly Reidel (10 rebounds). “You play a game like that, the score doesn’t matter. You’ve just got to go out and play your defense as hard as you can and pretend like it’s a close game,’’ Buechler said. “That’s just going to make you better.’’ Knafelc’s assessment of Arapahoe at the midpoint of the Centennial League season? “Maybe a little better than I figured, but we have a lot of areas we need to improve,’’ he said. “When we’re clicking, we’re doing great. It’s just that we need to get that click going for 32 minutes instead of 16 or 24.’’

Boys hoops: Grizzlies gear up for home stretch Showdown between ThunderRidge, Mountain Vista looming By Jim Benton

jbenton@ourcoloradonews.com Joe Marucci is a senior guard for the ThunderRidge boys basketball team. However, he sounded an awful lot like a coach when discussing what’s on tap for the fourth-ranked Grizzlies. “We’ve got a stretch of four games coming up that are bears,” said Marucci. “We’re just looking one game at a time.” ThunderRidge (13-4) was tied with second-ranked Mountain Vista with 5-0 records atop of the Continental League standings prior to Tuesday night’s games. The Grizzlies took a six game winning streak into the opening game of

their tough stretch Tuesday night with a game at Heritage against the suddenly formidable Eagles. On Friday night the biggest game so far this season in the Continental campaign will take place when ThunderRidge visits unbeaten and secondranked Mountain Vista. The following week Chaparral and Regis Jesuit play in the Grizzly Den at ThunderRidge. Mountain Vista (16-0) played at Ponderosa Tuesday night. Ponderosa, Highlands Ranch, Legend and Heritage were tied, two games behind the leaders, with 3-2 league records prior to Tuesday night’s games. The following is a wrap up on last week’s action. HERITAGE - The Eagles (8-9) showed the ability to win close games in Continental League truimphs over Chaparral and Castle View. Eli Ziegler scored 22 points against Chaparral and tossed in 18 points

against the Sabercats. LITTLETON - The Lions (7-10) lost to ThunderRidge but held off Rock Canyon to get their first league win. ARAPAHOE - The then seventhranked Warriors suffered two Centennial League setbacks. Matt Glasscock scored 15 points in a 49-38 loss to Cherokee Trail. The Warriors were 2-for-15 from 3-point range and missed a trio of 3-pointers in the final minute as visiting Cherry Creek escaped with a 46-43 victory. Mitch Albyn scored 14 points against the Bruins. VALOR CHRISTIAN - The Eagles, last week’s third ranked Class 4A team, grabbed a 20-13 lead but unbeaten No. 4 San Creek pulled away for a 7661 win. Chase Foster scored 17 points and Garrett Baggett had 14 points for Valor (15-4).

Triathlete keeps running on faith Local woman faces toughest challenge in breast cancer By Deborah Grigsby

dgrigsby@ourcoloradonews.com Diagnosed with breast cancer, Bridgette Duda Storms, a former triathlete and Ironman contender, thinks if cancer could be an Olympic sport, it would most likely be a race. But it wouldn’t be just any race. “It would have to be an endurance race in which you’d not know the route, the distance or even if there’d be water along the way,” mused the Ohio native. “There would also be no indicators of your time, your progress or even if you were close to the finish line.” Storms started that metaphorical race September 15, 2011, at the age of 36. Just 10 months after the birth of her youngest son, the former four-time world triathlete found a pea-sized lump in her breast that swelled to the size of a golf ball in less than three weeks. “I was still nursing my son, so naturally

BASH FOR BRIDGETTE What: Happy hour fundraiser to offset travel and medical expenses. When: 3:30 to 6 p.m., Feb. 7. Where: Pizzeria di Olinto, 2023 E. Arapahoe Road, Centennial More information: Call 303-790-2244 I thought it was simply a blocked milk duct or something,” she said. “You read about it all the time, so I scheduled an appointment with my doctor.” Within 90 minutes of Storms’ arrival in the doctor’s office she had a biopsy and was sitting with a surgeon discussing a diagnosis of cancer. “It was the worst feeling,” she sighed. Doctors would eventually identify Storms’ cancer as triple negative, a subtype of breast cancer that is generally diagnosed based on the presence — or absence — of three estrogen and progesterone receptors, as well as a human growth factor receptor called HER2. According to Storms, this type of cancer targets young, female athletes. “It doesn’t make sense,” she said. “I was fit, I exercised, I ate right…I did everything right.” Storms, who works for Oppenheimer

Funds in Centennial, said it is easier to find strength in her faith than it is in her body. “I think what’s been the hardest on me is seeing the impact on my body,” she said. “At my prime, I was running a mile at a 7:45 minute pace; now it’s more like 13.” Aggressive chemotherapy and radiation treatments provided some hope, but testing in December 2012 revealed the cancer had returned and spread to the pelvis and lower back. “At this point, I’m considered terminal,” she said. “My last hope is to get qualified for a variety of special clinical trials that are being conducted in Houston.” Clinical trials, particularly those related to cancer, are experimental and usually not covered by even the most comprehensive health plan. But Storms, who admits she’s always been hard on herself, feels she has no choice. “It’s the athlete in me that says, ‘no matter how much it hurts, how bad it looks, I can’t quit.’” Storms will undergo clinical evaluation at the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston in early February. “And in this kind of race,” she mused, “even if you do cross the finish line, you’d still never be quite sure you’d won.”

ActiveRx Helps the Elderly Gain Confidence By Manny Gonzales mgonzales@bestchamber.com When Julee McElhaney began having dizzy spells and falling, her family took notice. At 86 years old, Julee’s lack of balance was having a creeping, scary effect on her ability to get around and her family looked for remedies to the situation. They took her to the new ActiveRx in Englewood where physical therapists worked with McElhaney on helping her learn to walk better and helped her gain strength where her body had let muscles decondition. “I’m absolutely back to where I should be at my age,” McElhaney said recently as she and 120 business leaders from the South Metro Denver Chamber celebrated a Business After Hours event at ActiveRx. “I can walk around by myself and not worry so much anymore.” ActiveRx, located at 300 E. Hampden Ave., Suite 100, in Englewood is helping elder adults hold onto their youth by providing physical therapy combined with strength training. The company specializes in working with elder adults, 65 years and older, who are feeling and getting around slower than their age should suggest. “Our philosophy is you can gain strength at any age,” owner Kiva Patton said. “We really look to change our clients’ lives. Some clients who have had fall risks and are afraid to leave their house,” he said. “We love to help get them back on track so that they’re able to leave their house and be able to walk their dogs.” Often, the decline of an elder adult’s health can be so gradual that it’s hard to recognize something is wrong or that the potential for hazard exists, Patton said.

Chamber President & CEO John Brackney shares a light moment with ActiveRx owners Dana & Kiva Patton during the Business After Hours event.

“We offer free screenings and free fall prevention, so for anyone who has an elder adult in their family who they’re worried about bring them in and we’ll give a free assessment of where they stand,” Patton said. Joan Tucker, one of the physical therapists who treated Julee, said that even at the age of 98 a person should be able to stand up seven times in 30 seconds without having to use his or her hands. When Julee came to them, she had already suffered a fractured arm from a fall and would get winded on short walks. “The second she’d turn her head one way or the other, she’d lose her balance and fall down” Tucker said. “Often times, people don’t identify there’s a problem till there’s been a major fall or a stroke or a hip fracture.” McElhaney said she was grateful that her family recognized she needed help and acted fast. “I love coming here to keep my body doing what I want it to do - and its always fun!” Congressman Mike Coffman was one

Sister city’s big day celebrated Staff report A group of friends of the LittletonBega Sister City Exchange gathered in Bega Park downtown on Jan. 26 to celebrate Australia Day, that country’s version of Independence Day with lots of celebrations and merriment. Australia’s modern history dates back to 1788, when the first fleet of 11 ships arrived from Great Britain at Port Jackson, now called Sydney Harbor. The first fleet was led by Capt. Arthur Philip, who established the colony of New South Wales, the first penal colony in Australia. These first settlers to Australia traveled more than 15,000 miles from England southwest to Rio de Janeiro in South America, and then to Africa’s Cape of Good Hope before sailing across the Indian Ocean to the new continent’s eastern shore. The Littleton-Bega Sister City Exchange is a tradition that has existed for more than 50 years. Members stay in touch with and learn about each other’s countries, community and people. Over the years, it has become the practice for delegations from Littleton and Bega to visit each other every five years, and many lasting friendships have developed.

Wheelchair lacrosse team forming Local group working to establish roster By Tom Munds

tmunds@ourcoloradonews.com What began as a couple wheelchair athletes deciding that lacrosse should be open to them has grown into a group of players who are working to establish the roster for the Colorado Mammoth Wheelchair Lacrosse team. “I got interested in the sport when I went to an Mammoth game,” said Daniel Hersh, one of the original team members. “I liked the game. It moved fast and there was a lot of action. I decided to see if it was possible for wheelchair athletes to play the game. I bought a lacrosse stick and just started tossing the ball around.” He said he went on the Internet and found the national wheelchair lacrosse association and learned it was a fledgling, growing sport for wheelchair athletes. “Some other guys got interested and we began playing some three-on-three on an indoor roller hockey rink,” he said. “We did a camp in Colorado Springs on Labor Day and had 15 or 16 guys join us. It is a great sport and I hope we get a lot of guys involved.” He said the guys have been getting together to practice their skills and scrimmage for more than a year. But now the effort is to build a team that will compete in games and tournaments, thanks to the support of Colorado Adaptive Sports Foundation and the Colorado Mammoth.

Daniel Hersh demonstrates how he practices catching the ball in a lacrosse stick during a demonstration he put on Feb. 1 at Craig Hospital in Englewood. Hersh is among the athletes forming a local team to play wheelchair lacrosse. Photo by Tom Munds Corey Fairbanks, of the sports foundation, has joined the organizational effort. The Littleton man said the effort to create a team got a boost when the Colorado Mammoth Indoor Lacrosse Team agreed to support the team. “This initial team will be for adults,” he said. “But like the other wheelchair sports, our goal is to eventually create a youth team as well.” Hersh said lacrosse has special skills and it takes time to be able to play catch because each player

has to learn how to use throw the ball accurately from the net pocket on the lacrosse stick and to use the net pocket to catch the ball. He said the team is now playing indoors but the action could move outside when the weather gets warmer, as games can be played on any smooth roller hockey rink. “We have contacted the national organization and they have invited us to come to Ocean City, N.J., in August,” he said. “That is when they hold a huge lacrosse tournament and the goal is for us to hold our first wheelchair la-

crosse tournament.” The sport is in its infancy. There are four established teams in the United States, and the Canadian wheelchair program is getting started. A.J. Nagle is one of the team’s players. “I wanted to get involved in a team sport and lacrosse appealed to me,” the Lakewood resident said. “The sport is a little more difficult for me because I am a quadriplegic and don’t have a lot of hand strength. But I don’t let that stop me. It is a great game and I really enjoy it.”

Teammate John Vcelka agreed. “I had been messing around with lacrosse sticks and then Daniel got me involved in the team,” the Highlands Ranch resident said. “The skills have to be learned and we are fortunate to have coaches working with us. They have helped us a ton.” He said he likes the fast-moving pace of the game and the physical contact. “We wear pads because you get hit with a stick a lot,” he said. “It is physical and you can use the chair to block an opponent as long as you don’t hit him behind the axel.” Lacrosse is an original American sport that was played by American Indian tribes. Tribes in the Iroquois Nation used the game as training for the warriors with as many as 100 players per team involved in a game on a field more than a mile long. The game sometimes lasted for two or three days. The game has evolved. It is played at the adult, college, high school and youth level in Colorado. The game was adapted for play on the roller hockey rink. There are eight players per team, a goalie, two defenders, two midfielders and two attackmen. Midfielders can move up and down the length of the field but neither the defenders or the attackers can cross the midfield line. Wheelchair teams play four 15-minute quarters. Goals count 1 point each and are scored by getting the ball past the goalie and into the net. Substitutions are made on the fly like in hockey and, also as in hockey, penalties are assessed and the offender has to sit out, which leaves his team shorthanded.
