Slaying detailed in court Accused killer, teen girl face charges By Jennifer Smith

Centennial resident Ann Stong flips through the well-worn pages of a family Bible from 1864 that she never knew existed. Hundreds of miles away, a total stranger spotted it on the auction block and tracked her down.

19th-century Bible back with family Total stranger feels compelled to track down Centennial resident By Deborah Grigsby

dgrigsby@ourcoloradonews.com When Ann Stong received an email from Mary Marsh last September, she almost deleted it. “I usually don’t open emails from strangers, but this one was different,” she said. “I had to open it.” More than 1,500 miles away, Arizona resident Mary Marsh had stopped by a local antique mall in hopes of finding a barrister’s case for her husband. “I saw this Bible and thought, `Wow, what a find for someone,’” said Marsh from her home near Scottsdale, Ariz. Printed in Philadelphia in 1864, the Bible’s worn calf leather cover and ornate brass lock held the key to many missing pieces in someone’s life, thought Marsh. “That afternoon, I just couldn’t get that book out of my head — in fact, I dreamed about it that night,” she said. “I didn’t dream about all the bookcases I had seen, I dreamed about the Bible.” Compelled to find the owner, Marsh spent hours entering some of the names she had seen in the Bible into several online search engines. “It was like there were angels on my shoulder telling me I had to do this,” she said. Marsh eventually connected some of the names with Stong, a Centennial resident. “So, I sent her an email with a link to the

If the prosecution is right, Walter Zucchetti’s death in August 2012 was the result of a robbery gone out of control. If the defense is right, Teddy Puente is being falsely accused by a fragile 14-yearold girl. Judge Kurt Horton heard testimony from both sides during the preliminary hearing April 5. He ruled April 9 that the case against Puente meets the standard to proceed to trial, and set arraignment for June 3. Zucchetti’s body was discovered face-down in Puente his apartment on Aug. 13, dressed only in boxers and a T-shirt. There was red duct tape wrapped around his head, covering his mouth. During the April 5 preliminary hearing, Arapahoe County Coroner Michael Dobersen testified there was no way to tell exactly when the 66-year-old Zucchetti died, but his state of decomposition was consistent with early August. Dobersen ruled the death a homicide resulting from positional mechanical asphyxia, which basically means Zucchetti suffocated under his own weight. Obesity, emphysema, a fractured rib, the duct tape

Littleton joins health initiative City is first to sign on with Colorado campaign By Jennifer Smith Nearly 150 years old, Ann Stong’s family Bible was rescued from an Arizona auction block through the actions of a total stranger. Even with its weathered leather cover, the book’s pages are still in good condition, with legible hand-written entries and historic tintype photos of her ancestors. item and to the auction information,” she said. Stong, an avid amateur genealogist whose family often teases her abut spending more time with her dead relatives than she does with those still living, was delighted. “I emailed her right back,” said Stong. “When I saw her photos of the Bible and inscriptions, I immediately recognized the names and the handwriting from documents I have in my own collection.” The two exchanged several emails and

Stong decided she would make the 1,500mile trip to Avondale, Ariz. to attend the auction. Marsh was stunned. “I thought, `Oh my, gosh, I better be right,” she said. The morning of the auction came. Bidding for the Bible began at $30. Another bidder offered $40. “My heart just stopped,” said Stong. “I had no idea what I’d do if I couldn’t have that Bible.” Bible continues on Page 9

Denver Bronco stands tall for children You don’t want to be a running back, or a slot receiver who has the audacity to enter the area of the gridiron that Denver Broncos linebacker Wesley Woodyard patrols. But if you’re a kid who lacks Peyton Manning-like protection from life’s hard knocks, don’t worry. Wesley’s got your back. Woodyard paid a visit to the state Capitol last week to show his support for a legislative resolution that designates April as Child Abuse Awareness Month. The resolution, which was adopted by the General Assembly, calls upon “all citizens to educate themselves on how they can be the one to make a difference in the life of a child, and prevent child abuse and neglect.” Woodyard is no stranger to causes involving children. He often advocates on behalf of CASA — Court Appointed Special Advocates for children — and for his own charity, 16 Ways, which benefits kids from underprivileged backgrounds. “To me, it’s important to step up and be a part of the community,” Woodyard said in a recent interview with Colorado Community Media. “It only takes one person to make a difference in a child’s life. And when you’ve been given the platform that I’ve been given, it’s important to take advantage of it.” State Sen. Linda Newell, D-Littleton, a sponsor of the resolution, is involved in many child welfare-related issues at the

Legislature. She said that awareness of these types of causes is heightened whenever community members of Woodyard’s stature are involved. “Sometimes it’s the celebrity or somebody who can draw the attention of the community,” Newell said. “And he has been a great addition to the child abuse prevention community because he’s drawing in people who are sometimes not necessarily involved.” About the only thing that rivals Woodyard’s impact in the community is his play on the field — especially on the heels of his performance last season. Woodyard, 26, a Broncos team captain, had a breakout season at weak-side linebacker. He had career numbers in categories that included tackles, sacks and interceptions. But then there’s the way the season ended. As a lifelong Broncos fan, I can honestly say that I still haven’t gotten over January’s playoff loss to the Baltimore Ravens. I remember collapsing on my couch after the game, like my heart had just been ripped

out of my chest, straight out of some Aztec sacrifice ritual. Seriously, my voicemail and textmessage inbox was flooded that night with messages from concerned friends who were making sure that I hadn’t taken a leap from the top of downtown’s Republic Plaza. So, yes, it was a painful loss, to say the least — and that goes for the players, too. “It’s one of those things that I don’t think you get over,” Woodyard said. “But it motivates me. It motivates my teammates.” If the Broncos are going to advance further in the playoffs this season, they’re gonna have to do it without a key member of their defense. Pass rusher Elvis Dumervil, a fan favorite in the Mile City High since 2006, will be in a Ravens uniform this season, following a bizarre episode from last month that involved a signed, $8 million contract not being sent to the NFL in time for the league’s deadline. OK, so “bizarre” doesn’t do the incident justice. I mean, who transmits a document literally worth millions of dollars via a piece of machinery that gets less use out of it than a Donkey Kong Atari video game? What, carrier pigeons weren’t available? But, I digress. “I’m gonna miss Doom,” Woodyard said of Dumervil. “Doom was a role model to me. He taught me to be a man on and off the field. His leadership and play will be missed. “I talked to him the other day and I told him that I hope he breaks the sack record

in Baltimore, but not against us.” But there are plenty of things for Broncos fans to be excited about this season. Among them will be having another guy named Wes to cheer for on game days. “Oh, we’re very excited,” Woodyard said of the addition of Wes Welker to the Broncos receiving corps. “He’s an extreme competitor and we’re so happy to have him on board.” Not only is it gonna be nice to have the former New England Patriots standout on our team, Broncos players are just as thrilled about not having to defend against him. “Absolutely,” Woodyard said, laughing. “I know (Broncos cornerback) Chris Harris is excited about that. Those guys had some battles.” Woodyard recognizes that he and the Broncos did a lot of good on the field last season. But don’t think for a second that he doesn’t want to accomplish bigger and better things. “When you think you’ve arrived, that’s when you hit bottom,” he said. “It was a good season, but I could have done so much more. I’m grateful to have the opportunity to be where I am, but I’m looking forward to this season.” Vic Vela is the legislative reporter for Colorado Community Media.

The family that runs together Foonbergs and friends rally for cancer research By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@ourcoloradonews.com It was a good plan that almost came together, but it still had a great outcome. Spurred on by patriarch Jay, the Foonberg family rallied in support of one of their own April 7 during the South Platte River Half Marathon in Littleton. Jay, 77, started running marathons just 20 years ago but has since finished races on all seven continents. He’s currently on a quest to run half marathons in 25 states — “half in half,” he says. “I’m no jock. I’m nothing special,” he said. “I just do them to say I did them. I’m no hero. I’d just rather be surrounded by young, healthy people than old people like me.” When he found the half marathon in Littleton, the Los Angeles resident jumped at the chance to visit his son, David, a Jef-

ferson County resident. “I thought, `Wouldn’t it be great if we ran one together?’” said Jay. Fortuitously, David’s cousin Michael, a cancer survivor, had a big event of his own the same week. On April 9, the Greenwood Village resident accepted the Courage Award from the Melanoma Research Foundation during its annual Wings of Hope for Melanoma Gala. So the family decided to tie the two together. David signed up his business, Littleton Drum Studio, to sponsor the marathon, and about 30 Foonbergs, friends and relatives ran — or walked — it in Michael’s honor, including Michael himself. “My father unknowingly did a great thing by giving (Michael) a huge distraction the past several months, one that also made him healthier,” said David. Michael, a high-school basketball coach, has always been active, and training for the race helped him get back in shape after treatment. “But it’s kind of bittersweet, because he’s just been diagnosed with thyroid cancer,” said David. “It’s kind of hard to celebrate a

year free of cancer when it just started over.” Michael finished the race in a respectable two hours and 38 minutes. But Jay, the man who started it all, hit a snag. He couldn’t acclimate to the Colorado elevation, and ended up not running. “I am glad my father wasn’t foolish,” said David. All in all, the plan was a success, he said. It raised awareness about cancer, supported Michael, promoted exercise and healthy living and, most importantly, brought the family together. Jay theorizes that running marathons and playing drums have a lot in common, what he calls the “three Ds” — they take desire, discipline and a certain amount of dementia. “You have to be crazy,” he joked. “But if you’re going to do it and enjoy it and do it well, all three of them have to be present.”

Presentation at ACC lays out details of ‘Obamacare’ Law takes full effect at beginning of 2014 By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@ourcoloradonews.com With about 780,000 people uninsured, 116,000 of them children, Colorado ranks 42nd in the nation in the percentage of people with health-care coverage. “Our health-care system is not meeting the needs of everyone in Colorado today,” Gretchen Hammer, executive director of the Colorado Coalition for the Medically Underserved, told an audience at Arapahoe Community College on April 1. She was there to explain the impacts

“Obamacare,” or the Affordable Health Care Act, will have when it fully kicks in on Jan. 1, 2014. Thanks to the law, young people already can stay on their parents’ insurance until they’re 26, many types of preventive care are required to be covered, and researchers are getting money to find ways to lower costs while improving care. The No. 1 reason people cite for not having insurance is affordability. Starting in January, individuals making generally up to $15,000 a year will be eligible for Medicaid, along with families making up to about $30,000. The new model eliminates all requirements other than income. People earning up to $90,000 a year will be charged on a sliding scale. To pay for all that, everyone in the coun-

try will be required to have health insurance — even the young and healthy. “That’s the reason for the marriage between the most popular part of the law and the most unpopular part of the law,” said Hammer. In January, insurers will no longer be allowed to exclude people with pre-existing conditions and must offer a basic healthcare package including things like screenings, vaccinations and preventive care. “There’s investment in a slew of things that keep us healthy,” said Hammer. “Our health-care system would work a little better if we just didn’t have so much demand on it.” The only things that will affect how much people pay, said Hammer, are whether they smoke, where they live and their age.

Colorado was one of the first states to begin setting up its own health-care exchange rather than waiting for the federal government to dictate one. Known as Connect for Health Colorado, it will allow anyone to directly compare policies among private insurance companies. “Head-to-head competition hopefully will put downward pressure on premiums,” said Hammer, which could be good even for those currently insured by their employer. Hammer said most of those people won’t notice any change. Eventually, though, medical providers will likely be able to stop charging the insured higher prices to make up for those without, which could lead to lower premiums for everyone. “The whole system will begin to become more in line,” said Hammer.

r Party for outgoing cops tops $3,500 Councilors ask for policy guiding discretionary funds By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@ourcoloradonews.com The retirement party for the city’s top three cops prompted Littleton City Council to discuss discretionary budgets April 2, despite Mayor Debbie Brinkman calling it an “absolute waste of our time and a waste of our energy.” Councilor Peggy Cole asked for the discussion upon learning the party for outgoing Chief Heather Coogan and division chiefs Bob Brandt and Bill Christensen — held at the Hilton Garden Inn in Highlands Ranch — cost upward of $3,500. “This is nothing about the people that were honored, but I was not expecting so much money to be spent,” said Cole, particularly when the city

is drawing on its reserves to cover expenses. Councilor Bruce Beckman asked for a written policy guiding the use of such funds, and City Manager Michael Penny said he’d handle it administratively. Asked the next day who approved the spending for the retirement party, Penny replied, “There was no `approval,’ but it was the chief’s decision.” Beckman’s official party celebrating his retirement from the Littleton Police Department in June 2011 consisted of punch and cookies in the station, as was tradition. He said there were standards about such expenditures when he was there. “Somewhere that went awry in this event,” he said. Still, Beckman said council shouldn’t get too much in the weeds of the budget, and that departments should be able to police themselves. “If not, they’re going to end up on this dais, and they don’t want that,” he

said. “We should spend our time talking about more important things.” Councilor Jim Taylor said the department heads need some flexibility to deal with such unanticipated expenses. “They’ve got to have some leeway in order to spend funds we’ve already said it’s OK to spend,” he said. Councilor Jerry Valdes brought up council’s recent decision to kick in $25,000 to upgrade Euclid Middle School’s playground, even though the school district hadn’t asked for it. “I think we need to look in the mirror here, folks,” he said. “This is other people’s money.” Mayor Debbie Brinkman said the three officers were so popular and well-loved that she didn’t think the citizens would begrudge them a nice farewell. She noted the presence of about 200 people at the party, including elected officials from other cities. “It showed well for Littleton to show that level of appreciation,” she said.

Photo by Jennifer Smith around a half-million dollars, doctors steered her toward Doctors Care, an organization that’s been helping the medically underserved in the south metro area for 25 years. “They never made me feel like I was a welfare case,” Jordan told a large crowd gathered at the Inverness Hotel April 5 to celebrate a quarter-century of

success. In 1987, Dr. Gary VanderArk, founder of Doctors Care, started gathering medical professionals from throughout the community, working with area hospitals and groups like the Arapahoe-Douglas-Elbert Medical Society to offer affordable care to people with no or not enough insurance. “If everybody does a lit-

tle bit, nobody will have to do too much,” he said. He opened the doors of the first clinic on Valentine’s Day 1988 with 129 doctors committed to volunteering time and services. The very week of the celebration, that number became 1,000. “I’ve always been a very firm believer that you get more than you give,” said VanderArk. Executive Director Bebe Kleinman thanked Vander Ark for taking that leap of faith 25 years ago. “He models how to get up every day with a can-do spirit,” she said. “It’s hard not to believe we can do anything with him working by our side.” Harris said her daughter has that same attitude. She’s resumed looking for work and is reading and remembering things again. “This has been a journey for us,” said Harris. “It was just more than most people need to endure in a lifetime.”

Littleton ‘crabbier’ than most cities City’s tree trail is unique touch By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@ourcoloradonews.com Each spring when the streets of Littleton explode into poofs of pink, red and white, Larry Borger thinks of his friend Vaughn Gardinier, who died on Feb. 3, 2012 — too soon to witness that year’s flourish of crabapple trees. “He was a good friend, a fishing buddy, the kind of guy you’d get together with and tell lies to,” remembers Borger. Borger was the city manager when Gardinier was on city council in the late 1960s. They took on some big projects, including South Platte Park, bike trails, Town Hall Arts Center, Hudson Gardens and crabapples. Gardinier had the idea to line the streets with hardy, colorful crabapple trees not just to make them pretty, but to give the city something unique. “Forty years later, people see all those trees and think, `That’s kind of cool. Whoever thought of that?’” said Borger. “Vaughn was

the crabapple guy. Sometimes people would say, `Gardinier … they make a mess all over.’ He always had a running battle with the city.” In 2011, Gardinier took the project a step further by plotting out Littleton’s official Crabapple Trail. He even got the city’s director of public works, Charlie Blosten, on board to design the rustic signs that point the way. His widow, Mary, says he was hoping to arrange for horse-drawn carriages to trot the trail. After he died, Borger and Mary Gardinier joined forces with friends Dick Dugdale and Dennis Reynolds to ensure his legacy would endure. They established Littleton Crabapple Trail Inc. as a nonprofit with the mission to “continue and promote the appreciation of the springtime color display of flowering crabapple trees in Littleton.” Next they sent a note to many of Gardinier’s friends describing his involvement in the project, and suggesting a donation to help keep his dream alive. They got 74 responses and now have about $5,000 in the bank. “He was very fortunate, be-

(From left) Larry Borger, Cole Hancock, Mary Gardinier and Dick Dugdale display the sign the city presented to Gardinier in honor of her late husband, Vaughn, who created the city’s Crabapple Trail. Photo by Jennifer Smith cause he was loved by many, many people in Littleton,” said Mary Gardinier. Then they recruited Cole Hancock to take on the cause for his Eagle Scout project. He and the rest of Troop 361 planted some of the trees in 2011, and Hancock now will head up ef-

forts to decide where more trees and signs will go. “It’s a big responsibility just to take on an Eagle Scout project, especially one that has such a long tradition,” he said. The group has 100 new trees on order from the local O’Toole’s Garden Center, which offers them

a discount. Pending approval from South Suburban Parks and Recreation’s board of directors, Troop 361 will plant them in the eight parks along the trail during the first weekend in May. (Good news for Blosten: The new trees bloom but produce no fruit, so they don’t make a mess for the city to battle.) Borger is pleased that the kids are ready, willing and able to keep the city’s past and present alive for the future. “People need to know their history, and Littleton has an interesting history,” he said. “It’s fun when people pick up on it and become part of the next generation.” Cole, a 14-year-old Goddard Middle School Student, says he hopes that once he goes off to college, his troop will maintain the relationship with Littleton Crabapple Trail Inc. “Forty years from now, I can drive by with my kids and say, `Hey, I planted those,’” said Cole Hancock.

Civil Air Patrol refocuses on safety Oil, gas procedures hit delay ‘Cluster’ of incidents led to grounding, ‘get-well’ plan

COLORADO CIVIL AIR PATROL

By Deborah Grigsby

dgrigsby@ourcoloradonews.com Known best for locating lost hikers and downed aircraft, the Colorado Wing of Civil Air Patrol has been a longtime partner of many emergency responders across the state. But a recent “cluster” of safety incidents put a not-so-glamorous spotlight on the state’s 2,000-member organization, forcing it to suspend normal training operations, including air training activities, for 30 days. According to Mike Daniels, a Colorado Civil Air Patrol spokesperson, the wing was grounded by its regional headquarters in early February after a series of human error incidents caught the attention of superiors. He went on to add that administrative groundings, as in this case, are not unusual at all, and that it has happened before for simple things such as paperwork deficiencies. “This was nothing more than an anomaly,” explained Daniels, who said the suspension was officially lifted March 20. “These incidents occurred in a relatively close time frame and that’s what caught the attention of the regional headquar-

1,012 - adult members 1,083 - cadets 236 - aircrew personnel 1,048 - emergency responders 37 - locations statewide have squadrons 15 - single-engine aircraft $130,000 - state-funded annual budget 25 - search and rescue missions 9 - finds 7 - counterdrug missions 15 - other missions Source: Civil Air Patrol ters.” Dubbed a “get well” plan, Danielson said that during the standdown all members were required to complete a series of specified safety training activities and briefings appropriate for their rank, position and particular skill. Daniels notes that among the reported incidents, there were no injuries and no damage to property. Local pilots and others close to the CAP say while that may be true, some of those mishaps that put people and aircraft at risk could have been prevented. One incident described involved a Civil Air Patrol plane that departed a neighboring airport with a tow bar still attached to the nose wheel. The pilots, once aware of the situation, then flew to a neighboring airport and asked observers in the tower to verify the problem.

The oversight put others at risk of the tow bar dropping from a high altitude, and put the pilots at risk had it made contact with the propeller. While Daniels could not recall specifics, he confirmed the incident, reiterating that the wing’s effort to refocus itself on safety and safety procedures was paramount. Although regular training activities were suspended, Daniels said at no time was the wing ever unable to fulfill its official obligations. “As a matter of fact, we participated in a U.S. Army search and rescue exercise during this time,” he said. Daniels said to his knowledge, aircrew members named in the incidents were not disciplined, but rather required to participate in the same safety briefings and training as other CAP pilots. “It’s brought heightened awareness and sensitivity to the importance of safety,” said Daniels of the event. “Safety is paramount for the CAP and we are doing everything possible to ensure the safety of our people and those we serve.” The CAP has squadrons located across the state, including Centennial Airport, and regularly participates in search-and-rescue operations. In times of disaster, CAP members respond by providing economic and efficient transportation of doctors, firefighters and emergency personnel to areas in need.

County takes more time on amendment By Deborah Grigsby

dgrigsby@ourcoloradonews. com The Arapahoe County Commissioners on April 2 said they want another four weeks to examine the details of a proposed Land Development Code amendment that would help open the doors to oil and gas exploration in the county. Although a memorandum of understanding and a formalized administrative policy have already been completed in cooperation with the oil and gas industry, the devil is in the details when it comes to the county’s “use by special review” process. “A couple of years ago, we started to see an increase in oil and gas activity in eastern Arapahoe County and we developed some oil and gas regulations, which were not approved,” said Sherman Feher, a senior planner with the county public works and development division. “The BOCC directed us to work with the oil and gas industry, and part of the result was an MOU and an administrative process. Feher went on to explain at

the April 2 public hearing that the county’s two options include the MOU, which he classified as a “work in progress,” and a “use by special permit” administrative process. “What this is, basically, is a quid pro quo situation,” he said. “Operators would agree to more stringent standardsBy V than the Colorado Oil and Gasvvela Conservation Commission stipulates, then in exchange, A the county would provide anchan accelerated administrativenanc process with lower fees.” state Thomas Dugan, an attorneyline v for ConocoPhillips, recom- D mended the administrativeas an approval process wording mayquat need further clarification. ate a While he agreed with thetricts quid pro quo nature of the Bu MOU, Dugan suggested thebill d administrative approval pro-that cess may not be equitable, of-And fering the county the option tothat “get out of jail free” in some in- Se stances, but not the operator. derg Assistant County Attorneychild Tom McNish acknowledgedprog there were inconsistencies, but rather than approve the motion with the caveat for “minor editorial” changes, recommended a continuance for further legal review. The motion passed unanimously and has been slated for review on April 30.

President Barack Obama addresses police officers and other audience members during a speech at the Denver Police Academy on April 3. During his remarks, the president touted recent gun-control measures that have been passed by the Colorado General Assembly. Photo by Vic Vela held a press event, denouncing further guncontrol efforts. But Obama sees value in passing gun measures. He said Congress needs to address the loopholes in the current national background-check system for gun purchases, as Colorado legislators have done with recent legislation here. Obama said that if a person wants to buy a gun, “you should at least have to go through a background check to show that

you’re not a criminal, or someone legally prohibited from buying one.” The president cited statistics that indicate background checks often do keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people. “So, this does work,” he said. “And, by the way, if you’re selling a gun, wouldn’t you want to know who you’re selling it to? Wouldn’t you want in your conscience to know that the person you’re selling to isn’t going to commit a crime?” Obama also said high-capacity ammu-

nition magazines have no place in our communities. “I don’t believe that weapons designed for theaters of war have a place in movie theaters,” he said to applause. “Most Americans agree with that.” The president acknowledged the polarizing nature that surrounds the gun-control debate. He said Colorado is a state where hunting is a tradition, and where guns are “handed down from generation to generation.” “And they treat gun ownership with reverence and respect,” he said. At the same time, Obama said it’s important for people to understand where the other side is coming from on these issues. “There doesn’t have to be a conflict between protecting our citizens and protecting our Second Amendment rights,” the president said. Among those who attended the speech were Hickenlooper and U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder. The two took part in a round-table discussion on gun issues that involved Obama, prior to the president’s speech. Others taking part in the discussion were police and Colorado citizens whose lives have been affected by gun violence. Several state legislators also were attendance, including Rep. Rhonda Fields, D-Aurora. Fields — whose son was shot to death in 2005 and who sponsored some of the state’s gun legislation — said she felt that her work has been validated by Obama’s trip. “I feel really good about what we did here in the state of Colorado,” Fields told reporters. “And I think the rest of the nation should follow suit.”

ate a more equitable structure by which disthetricts are funded. the But Republicans argue that the 200-page thebill does nothing to put in place the reforms pro-that the state’s education system needs. e, of-And they cringe at the $1 billion price tag on tothat accompanies it. e in- Senate Bill 213 would fund full-day kintor. dergarten, provide preschool for at-risk rneychildren, and would increase needs-based dgedprograms for special education and for stu, but mominor comr fur-

dents who are learning English. The bill also expands funding for students who are involved in gifted and talented programs at schools, and it gives school districts the opportunity to have extended school years and school days, if they choose to do so. In addition, the bill would make changes to per-student funding for Report school districts across the state. If the overhaul is implemented, it would result in the most sweeping change to the school finance formula that the state has seen in decades. “This is a once-in-a-generation chance to rewrite the way we fund the single largest, most complex and most important part of the state government, which is how we fund K-12 education,” said Sen. Mike Johnston, D-Denver, a bill sponsor, during an April 1 debate that preceded the

Capitol

final vote. Democrats believe the time has come to help school districts that have had to deal with years of budget cuts, ones that have left students and teachers trying to fend with limited resources. Sen. Linda Newell, D-Littleton, said the five school districts in her legislative district “absolutely will benefit from this new formula.” “There are schools that are desperately in need,” she said. “I don’t want to see education so poorly funded in Colorado, and this is one way to get there that is equal, but fair.” But Republicans slammed the bill as being loaded with bureaucracy and lacking accountability. “This falls short of a true reform effort,”

said Sen. Mark Scheffel, R-Parker. And Republicans especially are opposed to the cost of the bill, arguing that legislation hits taxpayers’ wallets in a big way. “If this is being being portrayed as an education reform bill, it is April Fool’s Day,” said Sen. Ted Harvey, R-Highlands Ranch. “This is a $1 billion tax increase on the people of Colorado.” If the bill passes the General Assembly, it will be up to voters to decide whether they wish to foot the $1 billion price tag that will come in the form of an income tax hike. Only Colorado voters, and not lawmakers, are allowed to raise taxes, under the state’s Constitution. All 20 Senate Democrats voted for the bill, while all 15 Republicans voted no. The bill now heads to the House. OCTOBER APRIL SPECIAL SPECIAL

Aircraft firms’ tax credit gets support

Bill aims to boost nanid foremployment in state By Vic Vela

vvela@ourcoloradonews.com A bill that would expand tax incentives for the purpose of new hires in the state’s aviation field is flying through the Legislature with bipartisan support. House Bill 1080 modifies the 2005 Aircraft Manufacturer New Employee Tax Credit, which provides a one-time $1,200 tax credit for a new employee that is hired by an aircraft manufacturer. The bill expands the available tax incentives to manufacturers that provide aircraft maintenance, repair and modification services, which were not included in the bill from eight years ago. Rep. Chris Holbert, R-Parker, a bill sponsor, said it’s important to extend the existing earned tax credits in an effort to attract high-paying jobs in a growing field, rather than having planes fly to other states just for the purposes of having repairs done. “We have to recognize that big carriers like United or Frontier, when they need to maintain an airplane, very often they’ll fly it to Wisconsin or Chicago to do the work there, and then bring it back,” he said. “I

think it’s ridiculous that Colorado is losing out on those job opportunities. Why not do that maintenance, why not do more of that final fit and finish kind of work while they’re on the ground here?” Holbert said he was approached about the idea for the bill by representatives from Centennial Airport, which has runways that extend into Holbert’s Douglas County legislative district. Airport Executive Director Robert Olislagers said Colorado is in a tough competition with other states for tax incentives for aviation jobs. “Twelve hundred dollars in tax credits doesn’t sound like a whole lot,” Olislagers said. “But, if you add that in with other incentives that Colorado counties are providing, it starts to add up.” Olislagers also said he hopes the bill will create more aviation jobs for veterans, especially when it comes to work that involves modifications of military aircraft. The bill passed the Democratic-controlled House on April 5 by a vote of 61-2, with two members excused from the vote. “It’s a growing industry in Colorado,” said bill co-sponsor Rep. Tracy Kraft-Tharp, D-Arvada. “This bill helps aircraft manufacturers by being able to hire employees.” The bill now heads to the Senate, where it will be sponsored by Republican Sen. Ted Harvey of Highlands Ranch.

opinions / yours and ours

Amid tragedy is forgiveness, accountability Forgiveness itself is not often a topic in an editorial, but the recent words of Lisa Clements, wife of slain Colorado prisons chief Tom Clements, inspire food for thought. She stood with her two daughters by her side at her husband’s service March 25 in Colorado Springs and said, “We pray for forgiveness and peace for the family of the man suspected of taking Tom’s life, and we pray every day for forgiveness and peace in our own hearts.” She noted she shares her husband’s belief in redemption and the ability for the human heart to be changed. Her comments echo many other expressions of forgiveness in news reports

our view through the years. One surely was the reaction of the Amish community in Lancaster, Pa., after a 32-year-old gunman killed several girls in a one-room schoolhouse before killing himself in 2006. While the Amish community was not inclined to interact with the media, its stance was clear to not think evil of the gunman and instead pray for the shooter’s family,

question of the week

Will the Rockies be improved this season? The Colorado Rockies have a new manager and have brought in a number of new players for this season. We asked people at

several south metro-area locations if they thought the changes would help the Rockies play better baseball this year.

“I believe they will be a better team than they were last year. I believe new manager Walt Weiss will bring more energy to the team and I think they have made moves that have strengthened the pitching staff.” —Trevor Johnson, Denver

“I guess I think the Rockies will be better this season because I am always optimistic at the start of the season. I really like the attitude Walt Weiss has brought to the team. … I think they will win more than half their games this season.” — Brian Ewert, Centennial

“I do think they will be improved. Several top players are back from injuries and they have some new people on the roster. Also, Walt Weiss as the new manager will teach them to improve on the little things they have to do to win games.” —Tom O’Connor, Englewood

“I think the Rockies will do all right .... Pitching has improved and I believe Manager Walt Weiss will have the players working on fundamentals and he will show them how not to do those little things they do when they beat themselves.” —Doug Severinson, Elizabeth

April, don’t be cruel I happen to like April. I think April is a month of optimism, which is saying something, because I humbug just about everything. “If anything can go wrong, it will.” If I dropped one hundred slices of Wonder Bread coated with peanut butter, 98 of them would land peanut butter down. I know it. I’ve known two girls named April, and both of them were beautiful. Maybe that has something to do with it, why I like April. One of them, this is the absolute truth, was named April May. I think she was a June bride, and took the name of her husband, which messed up one of the greatest names ever. I guess April May sounds like it could be the name of an adult film star too. T. S. Eliot wasn’t as thrilled with April as I am. He wrote “The Waste Land” in 1922, and it starts this way: April is the cruellest month, breeding Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing Memory and desire, stirring Dull roots with spring rain At the time Eliot was writing “The Waste Land” his marriage was failing, and he was suffering from a nervous disorder. There you go. Of course he’s not going to write “April is the coolest month” if he is miserable. He could have been referring to Tax Day-month too. Income tax became permanent in 1913 with the Sixteenth Amendment to the Constitution, and income tax day typically falls on April 15. I always enjoy seeing stories about people who file at the last minute, driving to the post office, and saying, “Whew!” I finish my tax returns in February. I have an accountant, a great accountant. “Why don’t you just use TurboTax?” I was asked. “Because I have a great accountant,” is always my answer. My accountant and his daughter have been doing my taxes for over 20 years. I would miss them. I am right-brained, so tax codes and forms are a foreign language. My accountant approaches taxes very differently than I ever could. He works with numbers the way I work with colors. He seems to enjoy it, navigating information into compliancy.

I have decided that I will paint for another 10 years, and then quit. And then there will be no more deductions for paintbrushes and stretcher bars. I might be able to do my own taxes again, like I did when I was in college. Clip a W-2 to a one-page form, and be done in five or ten minutes. That would be a relief. But right now I have a slew of categorized envelopes, that turn into rounded-off numbers, that detail every thing I spent and earned as a artist. I’m giving April the benefit of the doubt, and I doubt everything. I think there are crueler months, for one thing. July and August? You can have them. If I had to live in St. Louis in July and August, my poem would start out, “July and August are the cruellest months, and the Cardinals are 16 games back.” April is OK with me. Winter is over, and things are blossoming. It’s impossible to be a total grouch when things are blossoming. The derivation of the name is uncertain, but the belief is it comes from the Latin aperire, “to open,” which makes sense, because it’s the season when trees and flowers begin “to open.” April has become infamous for another reason, namely 4:20 p.m. on April 20. Be sure to have some Cheetos handy. Ironically, April is “National Poetry Month.” Somewhere a poet will recite “The Waste Land” to an audience, that might not agree with her, because right outside the lilacs are lilacking away. Craig Marshall Smith is an artist, educator and Highlands Ranch resident. He can be reached at craigmarshallsmith@comcast. net

which was further conveyed by neighbors who interacted with the tight-knit community. Some Amish even reached out to comfort the family of the gunman. Although the level of forgiveness to some surely seemed too generous, it seemed to quiet the surrounding community as it respectfully honored the perspective of its neighbors, the direct victims of the shooting. We noticed a similar effect following Lisa Clements’ thoughtful statements. The complex mix of grieving, accountability and forgiveness is too much for any one editorial, but we venture to say the heart does not so quickly follow the mind once someone has decided to forgive.

And while each person’s offer of forgiveness is based on various factors — such as whether remorse is expressed — a commitment to forgiveness reflects the best in all of us, a step toward mending and somehow improving the future to come. In a recent CNN interview, Lisa Clements said she could be enraged but chooses not to be angry with news that an errant court proceeding allowed the gunman to be released from prison four years early. She said she will not let it consume her. While she supports this need for accountability, we admire her strength as she champions a commitment to forgiveness and the steadfast view she shared with her husband that people can change.

Finding the right level of tolerance So what is an acceptable level of tolerance? I guess the answer is really situational, as in some instances we can be or become extremely tolerant and in other cases find our patience being tried and maybe even fried. Thresholds vary based on our personality and are shaped by our life experiences. For example, someone who has been living with chronic pain or frequent injuries may have built up a tolerance to pain. Treatments and therapies that used to be exceedingly painful have become more tolerable. Aches and pains that were so severe that they sidelined us from life’s activities have given way to our desire to do more. I know many people in this very situation right now. They are suffering from bad backs, hips, knees, cancer, diabetes and other debilitating diseases. I have seen these same people rise to the occasion and get themselves to an acceptable level of tolerance associated with their pain. The pain or hurt doesn’t go away, it’s just that over time they have conditioned themselves to accept as much as they possibly can. What about at work? Where do we draw the line and hold people accountable for performance and productivity? What is our acceptable level of tolerance when either our staff or our managers are not working at the expected level of performance? We can choose to ignore it and hope it will get better, which never works, or we can have a calm and productive discussion and re-set expectations for everyone. I know for me personally, as a leader or manager and even as an employee, I always felt like others were not keeping up with my pace. This included my managers and senior executives. In this case it was not a matter of having a discussion with others and re-setting expectations, it was about me realizing that I needed to adjust my acceptable level of tolerance. Once I made that adjustment and got to that point of acceptance, I became less resentful and much more productive.

St rarel busin ploye Se cham How much are we tolerating in our Gene relationships? Do our partners, spouses, woul children, parents, and friends support us Prog and do everything they can to make us feel busin appreciated, respected and loved? And if not, do we accept that, sweep it under the rug, and again hope that it gets better? It never works. We need to share with everyone what we are willing to accept and tolerate and what we are not. And as difficult as that may sound, once the conversations have happened in most cases things will begin to get much better. And as a consumer, as a customer, what is our acceptable level of tolerance? We can choose to continue to shop or eat or drink at places where we don’t feel appreciated and receive poor service, or we can decide that there are probably better options, a store, restaurant or bar where the attention to customer service and quality surpasses our expectations. The point is this: We are in control. We get to determine what we will accept and what we will not. We set the thresholds of tolerance, not anyone else. It is a freeing Slayi and liberating feeling when we finally get to that point and our opportunities to enjoy life increase proportionally. How about you — what are you willing to tolerate? I would love to hear all about it at gotonorton@gmail.com, and my hope is that this will be a better than good week for you.

and the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office already has people manning a command post. More agencies are waiting in the wings, and just like in real time, they arrive one by one, as Jeff Case, public works director for the Highlands Ranch Metro District, stands by with maps depicting where wells are and access points to fight the fire. “We know how to get around back there,” Case says, “and we can answer questions as to whether water can be available at particular locations.

officers and other emergency responders to get to know one another and learn each other’s strengths so they are better prepared when the real thing hits. There were 65 officers and representatives from a dozen agencies present April 3, including firefighters from South Metro, Littleton, Larkspur, Castle Rock, Colorado Springs and Franktown, and officers from the Parker Police Department and Douglas County Sheriff’s Office. “It gets complicated, but unfortunately these wildfires are

complicated,” said Tim Johnson, director of emergency management for Douglas County. “We have to make sure we are deploying assets at the right time and making the right decisions. “We try to bring in a lot of different jurisdictions and do a multi-agency event, because in the real world when we have a big event, they are all going to be there. It’s a good opportunity for people to meet each other and work with each other, so that the first time they are meeting is not in a real event.”

Measure would keep rarely used work program going Plan allows partial benefits for employees with reduced hours By Vic Vela

workers at reduced hours, rather than laying them off altogether. Under the program, which businesses can enter into on a voluntary basis, employees receive prorated unemployment benefits to compensate for the loss of hours. Workers can receive up to 26 weeks of prorated unemployment benefits through Colorado Work Share, under recent federal changes made to the program. The program receives federal money for reimbursement, rather than adversely affecting the state’s Unemployment Insurance Fund. Rep. Tracy Kraft-Tharp, D-Arvada, a House sponsor of the bill, said the program allows businesses that are going through

State lawmakers have voted to renew a rarely used program that gives struggling businesses an alternative to laying off employees. Senate Bill 157, which has passed both chambers of the Democratic-controlled General Assembly on party-line votes, s, would extend the Colorado Work Share us Program indefinitely.

of a major fire we can help provide organized perimeter control and help support the first responders so they can deal with more important issues.” Case’s job, and those of the Metro District park rangers, are a small sampling of the necessary roles when multiple jurisdictions come together to fight a regional disaster such as a wildland fire. It’s incident training drills such as the one hosted April 3 by the Douglas County Office of Emergency Management that allow neighboring firefighters, police

a “temporary tough time” to keep skilled workers, instead of losing them. The Work Share program, which was put in place in 2010, and is administered under the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment, had to be taken up again by the General Assembly because it is scheduled to sunset in July. Kraft-Tharp acknowledges that the program isn’t well-known, and that only a handful of Colorado businesses are taking advantage of it. But she expects that to change soon. “There was no money for Department of Labor staff time when it passed in 2010, so the state has not been able to promote this,” she said. “But, with the new changes,

we can access federal grants, so we can allocate staff time to support it.” Republicans are opposed to the continuation of the program. The bill passed the Senate without any GOP support in March, and again in the House on April 2. Rep. Brian DelGrosso, R-Loveland, said during a recent debate on the House floor that businesses that pay into the state’s unemployment insurance trust fund could essentially end up paying the wages for competitors’ workers, even though the workers are still employed there. “So, potentially you can have a competitor down the street paying for the employees of a fellow competitor somewhere else in town,” DelGrosso said.

Marsh said the experience of connecting Stong with

her Bible has inspired her. “Including Ann’s, I’ve now reconnected five families with Bibles set for auction,” she said. “I hope to encourage others to do the same when they see these kinds of items at sales or antique malls — it would be a shame to see so much family history wind up as decoupage on someone’s

wall.” Stong said although her newfound heirloom has answered many of her questions, she still plans to keep

digging into the lives of her ancestors. “I’m not through being nosy, just yet …” she said.

Slaying: Puente is in Arapahoe County jail Slaying continues from Page 1

and the inability to get out of the ultimately fatal position were all contributing factors, said Dobersen. He said there were few external injuries other than minor bruising and what might have been scratches or stun-gun marks on Zucchetti’s leg and shoulder. Littleton Police Detective Jim Patton described the lengthy investigation that led to the arrests of Puente on Nov. 1 and the girl on Oct. 26. They’re both being held without bond on charges of first-degree murder, robbery and conspiracy to commit murder. Puente is in the Arapahoe County jail, and the girl is in the Marvin J. Foote Youth Services Center. Patton and Detective Erin Brannan started by interviewing Zucchetti’s neighbors, who described him as a gambling drinker with a preference for “young, black prostitutes,” said Patton. He’d been excited in early August to tell friends that a young lady was moving in with him. The last message left on his answering machine was from a female

who said she was sorry about what had happened, without elaborating. A number on his caller ID led police to a female in Denver who said a young woman she’d met in the park had offered to walk her dog for free. She said she eventually gave the female’s boyfriend a key to her home and allowed them to use her phone. She was able to give police the female’s phone number, which ultimately led them to Puente and the female. Littleton police issued a “be on the lookout” advisory to other agencies on Sept. 20, which stated the girl might be being prostituted by Puente. Denver police found the pair the next day. The girl, who Patton said had run away from home about two years before, initially told police she had just met Puente that day. She later admitted to being in Zucchetti’s apartment with Puente on the day he died. She said she’d met Zuchetti on the 16th Street Mall in July; he bought her McDonald’s food and invited her to his apartment. Patton said the girl gave both Zuc-

chetti and Puente a fake name and led them to believe she was 19. She told police their plan was to confront Zucchetti with her real age, then extort him into giving them a mobile tablet device and other items. When Zucchetti resisted, the girl told police, Puente taped his mouth shut. Patton testified DNA on the tape matched DNA associated with Puente’s criminal record in Chicago. The girl said Puente sat on Zucchetti’s back, pushing on it, while she tried to hold his legs still. She admitted to stealing the tablet and ripping the phone out of the wall, said Patton, but said Zucchetti was alive when they left. “It’s during the course of that robbery that Mr. Zucchetti died,” concluded prosecuting attorney Jay Williford. Defense attorney Michael Faye says the evidence is shaky at best. “The evidence is circumstantial and mainly based on statements made by the co-defendant, who is a 14-yearold girl,” he said, calling her credibility questionable.

Health: Grants could be possible for other initiatives Health continues from Page 1

George, director of the campaign. “We’re confident we can make great headway by partnering with Littleton officials to make this happen in your city and to benefit the lives of Littleton residents.” Deputy City Manager Mike Braaten said this step further cements the city’s role as a leader in employee wellness and in providing services that encourage active living among its citizens. “We’re actually ahead of the curve,” he said, pointing to the newly established employee health-care clinic,

guardianship of open space and trails, and the recently approved bicycle/pedestrian master plan as examples. Membership in the campaign is free and could lead to grants to support other healthy initiatives. Braaten said the only costs associated with joining will be things council likely would have approved even without it, but now will earn credit for them. “The campaign is focused on policies, as they are a no- or low-cost way for a municipality to lay the groundwork for environmental changes that make access to healthy living available to residents,” explained George. “The

actual physical work is accomplished as a city’s budget cycle allows.” Braaten notes it’s also important to the city’s renewed economic-development efforts, as employers often consider opportunities for their workers to pursue a healthy lifestyle when deciding where to locate. The state spent $1.637 billion treating diseases and conditions related to obesity in 2009, said George, with further costs to businesses for lost productivity and absenteeism. “It’s just a way to keep the idea of active living in the back of our minds,” said Braaten.

Common kitchen remodeling mistakes to avoid By Kitchen Tune-Up www.kitchentuneup.com

Everyone’s heard the horror stories of the remodel that went wrong, very wrong; the contractor skips town with the deposit, the product doesn’t arrive and you wait months for a workable kitchen, bathroom, etc., the kitchen is left so dirty and in such disarray that it takes days to clean it up and feel like you can cook in it again. It doesn’t have to be that way! There are honest, hard-working contractors out there who are good at what they do and will make your kitchen, bath, or wood floor look spectacular for a reasonable price. So, what should you look out for when entrusting your beloved home to someone you don’t know? Here are five common mistakes you can avoid if you know about them in advance. We’ll also give you some tips on things you can do to ensure your remodeling experience is the best it can be. • Don’t expect your project to run perfectly. Problems do occur. If you get upset about a few days’ slippage, you will drive yourself insane. Remember, you will have this kitchen for a good number of years, so a few days here or there are insignificant to the overall result. The important thing is that your contractor is reacting to it, getting it handled and gets everything back on track as soon as possible. For example, your contractor pulls the old cabinets off and fi nds out there has been a leak that

has rotted the flooring and joists under the floor, so everything stops until another company can come in and fi x it … if everyone is busy, it could be a week or more. You need to be prepared for the possibility that this type of problem can happen. • Don’t expect a working kitchen until the project’s done, so make arrangements for that. Cabinet refacing does not shut down your kitchen, but new countertops in addition to refacing will. You will probably be without running water and a sink for a few days. New kitchens are shut down on day one, as soon as the old cabinets are torn out. Depending on the countertop chosen, you’re typically looking at two to four weeks before you have a fully functional kitchen again. • Don’t start your remodel before you’ve chosen your appliances. Make sure you have the specs in the contractors’ hands prior to cabinets being ordered. This will result in a better fit for the appliance into the cabinets … especially wall ovens, built-in microwaves, cook tops, and large fridges. • Don’t pay for the entire project until the entire project is completed. Most projects will require you to make a significant down payment. This is normal, because the contractor has to place orders for products designed specifically for your kitchen. If you decided to withdraw from the project, he’d be stuck holding the bag. However, it is good policy to always leave a portion outstanding until the kitchen is finished. Ten percent is pretty typical. If you

have a problem giving your contractor a down payment, then you don’t trust him, and you should not be using him. • Don’t fall for the “big discount if you sign now” routine. Some remodeling companies offer huge discounts if you sign with them on the spot. If they offer an extremely large discount, it just means their price is too high to begin with. Remember, though, it is more cost-effective for the company to be able to wrap things up on the fi rst call, so a modest discount to save a second trip is reasonable, just use common sense. High-quality companies won’t use high-pressure tactics to get you to sign. Their product, service and references speak for themselves. Make sure you check out your contractor thoroughly in advance. Call their references, check from time to time, there are such things as “difficult” or “unreasonable” clients. If a contractor has a bad comment or complaint, consider it against the length of time they’ve been in business and ask them to explain any issues you found. It is expected that on occasion, good contractors may have bad customers. If you see a pattern of complaints, however, you know you shouldn’t use that contractor. You should be comfortable with and “click” with the contractor you’ve chosen for your remodel. Make sure they have a good amount of experience, positive references and valid liability insurance if something does go wrong.

Tips to avoid injury while spring cleaning By StatePoint

Cleaning your home from top to bottom this spring? Do so with care. From falls off ladders to muscle pain, heavy-duty chores can be hazardous to your health and wellness if you’re not careful. So before you roll up – in-your sleeves and get into ona-the thick of it, take a moment to review some essengbirdtial safety precautions:

al

n va-Avoid outdoor mishaps W hen mow ing the lawn, wear sturdy, closedtoe shoes. Clear your lawn of stones, toys and other potentially hazardous debris before you begin, eren-to prevent flying objects. Keep children away from addi-your yard while you’re midmowing. Foli- Reduce the risk of a ladch asder fall by always using a Theystable ladder. Be sure to keepuse the correct height ladl be-der for the job and follow all weight restrictions. Only set ladders on level surreen-faces. Pay close attention to what you’re doing and climb up and down the ladder slowly and deliberately. Treat muscles right From lawn work to scrubbing floors, unusual repetitious motions can really take a toll, resulting in muscle pain or bruising. Treat your spring clean like a workout and stretch your

Photo courtesy of StatePoint major muscle groups before you get started. When lifting those boxes in your basement and any other objects with heft, bend at the knees to avoid throwing your back out. If a chore is causing you pain, stop what you’re doing. “Start out slowly to avoid placing a sudden demand on your muscles that are not use to this activity,” says Anne Meyer, MD who focuses on sports rehabilitation medicine. If you feel stiff or sore after a long day of reaching, bending and lifting, Dr. Meyer recommends minimizing physical activity, elevating an injured arm or leg, and treating the first sign of muscle pain by applying a quick absorbing topical muscle pain reliever like Arnicare Gel. Remember to take fre-

quent breaks. And end your long day with a relaxing bath. Clean safely Cleaning products can be extremely stringent, causing irritation to your eyes, nose and throat. If opting for natural alternatives, such as vinegar or lemons is not an option, use the harsher stuff with care. Open all windows when using harsh cleaning products, especially ammonia. Wear gloves and consider protecting your nose and mouth with a surgical mask. Place products out of reach when you’re not using them if you have pets or small children. By following a few safety measures, you can make your spring clean a rejuvenating experience.

How to make your garden more environmentally friendly By StatePoint Spring is here, which means it’s time to slip those green thumbs into some gardening gloves. And if you want to feel truly good about what you grow, consider upgrading your garden to be more planet-friendly. Here are some ideas to consider: Grow your own dinner Grow the vegetables, herbs and flowers that you would normally purchase for your dinner and floral arrangements. Local is more sustainable because it reduces the carbon footprint associated with transport. And you can’t get more local than your own backyard. Encourage pollination Pollination is crucial for agricultural production and the health of the ecosystem. Unfortunately, many pollinating insects are highly susceptible to environmental changes and have in recent years, suffered major population decline. You can help local pollinators thrive by planting a variety of native species of varying colors and shapes and reducing your use of pesticides. Be bird-friendly No garden is truly complete without

regular visits from birds. Encourage flying visitors by installing a feeder and bird bath. According to a study published in the Wilson Journal of Ornithology, billions of birds die annually worldwide from collisions with windows. So if you’re going to send out the mass invite to these beautiful creatures, don’t forget to make it hazardfree for their arrival. Without affecting the appearance of your home, you can make your windows safer for birds by applying static-cling decals. For example, WindowAlert creates decals that look like frosted glass to people, but brilliantly reflect UV light for birds. To create a complete visual barrier, consider filling in the gaps between decals with UV Liquid dots which are invisible to humans, but visible to birds. More information on preventing bird collisions can be found at www.WindowAlert.com. Compost By composting, you will not only reduce your home’s overall waste, you’ll also create a rich soil that can be used in your garden to cultivate plants naturally. Be careful what you compost, however. Sawdust from chemically treated wood, diseased plants, and even walnuts, when composted, can create soil that’s hazardous to both plants and people.

Buying a home? Avoid these mistakes

T

he dream of home ownership is one that lives on in spite of the global economic struggles. The process of buying a home can be an emotional roller coaster ride, with feelings of excitement

mixed in with exhaustion, fear and uncertainty. Over the last several years, the real estate market has been turned upside down, and many prospective buyers have begun to question some of the conventional wisdom associ-

ated with buying a home. While such skepticism might be a healthy attitude in the current market, prospective buyers -- particularly those who have never purchased a home before -should avoid the following mistakes that buyers make

regardless of whether the market is up or down. * Failure to get qualified beforehand. Mortgage qualification is essential when buying a home, as it gives buyers preapproval for a loan before they make any offers. Making an offer on a home before you know what the bank is willing to lend you is a waste of time for everyone involved, including you, the seller and the real estate agents involved. Some agents will not show a home if you don’t have a preapproval. Once preapproved for a loan, don’t take any steps that might put that approval in jeopardy. This includes anything that might drastically alter your credit score. * Being blindsided by additional costs. Firsttime homebuyers, once they have moved into their home, often experience some sticker shock when the additional expenses associated with home ownership arise. These additional expenses include property tax and insurance costs and can be substantial. Even those buying a condominium or co-op should expect monthly maintenance fees

even if their new place is brand new and needs no maintenance. * Shooting for the moon. The ongoing recession is in part the result of predatory lending that saw banks grant excessive loans to applicants who, in hindsight, could not actually afford all that they were approved to borrow. The result was many people buying homes they could not afford, and then suffering some steep consequences, including foreclosure, when the first mortgage payment came due or the interest rate rose. First-time and even veteran buyers must avoid shooting for the moon when it comes to buying a home, and instead only buy one they know they can afford. What the banks says you can afford isn’t always the same as what you know you can afford. Only buy a home you know you can afford, regardless of whether the bank has approved you for a larger loan. * Pigeonholing yourself into an inadequate living situation. Just like buyers shouldn’t go overboard, they also must avoid compromising on the things that are most important to

them. For example, many of today’s buyers, fully aware of the rash of foreclosures and all the housing horror stories of the last several years, are reticent to commit to a home, and might compromise with a condo or co-op. But if a home is what you really want, and another living situation that mirrors apartment life is going to make you miserable, don’t settle for that situation for the sake of security. Doing so could cost you financially, especially when you realize the situation isn’t what you’d hoped for and look to sell earlier than is ideal. * Skimping on the cost of an inspector. An inspector is your last chance to find out if a home is your dream home or a money pit. Even if a house appears to be everything you want, don’t close on the sale until the house has been thoroughly inspected. The old adage that advises against judging a book by its cover certainly applies to buying a home, and prospective buyers should enlist the services of a qualified inspector before closing on the sale of a home. ■ Metro Creative Services

Greenery isn’t bush-league

A cast made up of accomplished Equity actors, including several from the Denver metro area, fills the Lone Tree Arts Center stage for “Lost Highway,” a musical story of singer Hank Williams, the legendary singer and songwriter who died at 29. Courtesy photo by Danny Lam

Play spotlights music legend Hank Williams drama offers humor, sadness By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com “Hank Williams: Lost Highway” is onstage at Lone Tree Arts Center through April 14 — a revisit of a show originally workshopped at the Denver Center for Performing Arts in 1986/87. Director Randal Mylar and music director Dan Wheetman took it to the Manhattan Ensemble Theatre offBroadway in 2002, and it has played across the U.S. in subsequent years. They recently brought the John Denver Holiday Concert to Lone Tree. The production, co-produced by Starkey Theatrix and Lone Tree Arts Center, shows the polish it has acquired, featuring an Equity cast of experienced performers who make it all look easy as they revisit the music and life of this extremely talented/ extremely conflicted American legend. Hank Williams shot to the national scene from backwoods Alabama, recording a total

if you go “Hank Williams: Lost Highway” plays through April 14 at Lone Tree Arts Center, 10075 Commons St. Performances: 7:30 p.m. Thursday; 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday; 1:30 p.m. Sunday. Tickets start at $29, 720-509-1000, LoneTreeArtsCenter.org/hank. of 35 singles. After a stretch on Grand Ole Opry — and being fired from that show — he died of an overdose in the back seat of his baby blue Cadillac at age 29. Of those 35 songs, 11 hit number one and have become part of our national fabric, and the 20 songs interwoven into this smoothly composed biographical story all sound familiar. Backed by a versatile band, Hank sings of loneliness and sadness, “Lovesick Blues,” as well as some upbeat numbers such as “Hey Good Lookin’.” Ryan Nearhoff, a New York-based actor and musician, certainly resembles the online photos of Williams. He is believable in song style and in his picture of a man disintegrating publicly due to alcohol and drugs. His backup band members — who eventually had to give up on him — are all well-de-

veloped characters, and three of them have toured with this production elsewhere. Mama Lily, who helped launch Hank’s career, is played by Denver favorite Kathleen Brady, who belts out songs with spirit throughout. His wife Audrey, who also tied into his career, is played by Jamie Ann Romero, and the waitress in Pete’s Diner, who enjoys Hank’s radio broadcasts and dances to the rhythms at the front edge of the stage, is award-winning Denver actor Rhonda Brown. Mississippi Charles Bevel plays blues singer Tee-Tot, who taught Hank to play the guitar and sing early on. He is woven into the storyline intermittently from his corner of the stage. Denver audiences know him from the fine production of “It Aint Nothin’ But the Blues” produced some years ago at the Denver Center. Humor and sadness mix in this account of an American favorite. It is skillfully staged, with an overlay of lighting that gives the production a soft patina. It merits a visit for the quality of performances.

Street art inspires abstract works ‘Whitewash’ on display in Santa Fe district

if you go Space Gallery is located at 765 Santa Fe Drive, in Denver’s Santa Fe Arts District. Hours: 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays; 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturdays. 303623-3448.

By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcolorado news.com “Whitewash,” is Patricia Aaron’s title for a group of six new ink and encaustic paintings to be exhibited in a group show at Space Gallery in Denver’s Santa Fe Arts District, where she is a new member. The exhibit runs from April 19 to June 1. She will be present at an opening reception from 6-9 p.m. April 19. She writes that the new works were inspired by a recent trip to Key West, where she explored behind the tourist facades to find exuberant street art, graffiti, filling walls along alleys, underpasses and schoolyards. Whitewash is the community’s method to eradicate the art. For more than 20 years, Aar-

“Ohio Painting” is included in Patricia Aaron’s new exhibit, “Whitewash” at Space Gallery, 30”x 30”, ink and encaustic. Courtesy photo on, of Greenwood Village, has been researching rogue art as historical record. She finds references pre-dating the ancient

Greek, Roman and Egyptian civilizations. Her chosen medium for interpreting her responses to

graffiti is a combination of ink and encaustic — beeswax with pigment — layered precisely to present rich, sometimes translucent effects. Her works are abstract, with suggestions of words and other markings buried in them. This technique of making art dates to ancient times and retains shape and color. The painter melts beeswax, adds pigment to small batches and brushes it on a panel in thin layers. When a layer is completed, it is carefully heated with a torch to seal the color. The end result is a complex, inviting painting with a rich, smooth, almost glassy surface through which one can see previously applied layers of color and texture.

Remember when “take me out to the ball game” meant a meal of peanuts and crackerjack along with a hot dog and beer? So imagine what a healthy home run that Aramark, Coors Field’s exclusive concessionaire, is hitting with the introduction of a sustainable garden located at Gate A of the ball field. The Colorado Rockies and Aramark have partnered with The Institute for the Built Environment at Colorado State University and Designs by Sundown to produce the on-site garden, which will provide the concessionaire with herbs and vegetables for use in Coors Field’s Mountain Ranch Club menu and build-your-own salad station. The design of “The Garden,” which is its official name, mimics a baseball stadium, with raised beds terracing upward from The Garden’s “infield” to the outfield and then to the stands. Ornamental flowers, followed by herbs, followed by vegetables will be on display for fans that pass through Gate A over the course of the Rockies’ season. The beds will be constructed of beetle kill pinewood sourced from Morgan Timber Products of Fort Collins. The plantings will be propagated at CSU from seeds adapted to the Colorado climate. The installation of The Garden marks a further commitment by the Rockies and Aramark to develop environmentally friendly programs in alignment with Major League Baseball’s recent green focus. On the other side of the snack spectrum, Aramark has added plenty of indulgent items that first were offered with last the April 5 home opener. They are: • Sausage on a stick — Italian, smoked cheddar, spicy Polish sausage. • Carnitas nachos — tortilla chips smothered in green chili queso topped with pork carnitas, jalapenos, pico de gallo and sour cream. • Smothered empanada — topped with former Bronco Mark Schlereth’s Stinkin’ Green Chili, shredded lettuce, pico de gallo and sour cream. • Pizza nachos — fresh fried pizza dough chips topped with house-made marinara sauce, shredded mozzarella, diced pepperoni and sausage. • Rib eye sandwich — a 4-ounce rib eye served with sliced Havarti horseradish cheese, topped with onion tanglers and tangy gold barbecue sauce. • Souvenir refillable popcorn.

Laird lands at Sarto’s

Since talented chef Brian Laird left Barolo Grill, after a 12-year stint in command of the kitchen, he bounced around Denver’s dining scene between the nowshuttered Russo’s in the Vallagio development in Arapahoe County to the nowshuttered RockBar on East Colfax to Sketch at 101 Broadway. I don’t think that Laird knew what he wanted to do when he grew up. But the boy wonder (he looks younger than his years) finally has landed at a spot I think he can call home. Sarto’s, a northern Italian eatery poised to open in the fall in a vacant century-old property at the corner of Eliot Street and 25th Avenue, will be the centerpiece of an emerging neighborhood between Highland and Sports Authority Field. Laird and majority owners Taylor Swallow and Kjsa Gotlin share a passion for northern Italian cuisine, which will be adapted to reflect contemporary tastes. Parker continues on Page 21

t Painter’s brushstrokes color a mystery

Real-life theft orgia clos-mixes with fiction a Fe’s org. in satisfying book By Sonya Ellingboe

if you go

B.A. Shapiro will appear at 6:30 p.m. April 17 at the Highlands Ranch Library, 9292 Ridgeline Blvd., Highlands Ranch. Books will be on sale at the event. (Algonquin Books, $23.95).

ationsellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com April: ings, The timing is perfect for B.A. Shapiro’s Rec-appearance at Highlands Ranch Library. Blvd., At 6:30 p.m. on April 17, she will talk about her sixth novel — “The Art Forger,” ins ofspired by the still-unsolved, uglashighly publicized 1990 theft wersof 13 masterpieces from the Isabella Gardner Museum lass”in Boston. Tree Recently in the news ircle,again, there are new leads for law authorities attempting to recover the works, Shapiro which are marked by empty frames at the museum. ssion Shapiro’s complicated story follows a ence, young artist, Claire Roth, a skilled painter Mamwho makes her living by copying mastere Ice pieces on order for a reproductions company. The reader with an interest in art is fas-

cinated by Shapiro’s detailed account of how forgeries are executed to fool today’s high-tech verification procedures, starting with an old canvas from the desired period, matching the original paints — with indepth knowledge of the particular artist’s techniques and brushstrokes. Degas, in this situation, had clearly recognized color choices and painting style. Shapiro’s research into the byzantine paths followed in the art world, combined with an imagined work of art and gossipy fictional tales about Isabelle Stewart Gardner, result in a leisurely spin, with side trips to late 19th-century Paris, where Gardner and Degas were part of the swirling Impressionist world. The eccentric Gardner alone provides fodder for a book. She reportedly walked pet lions near her Fenway property in Boston, chose to start her own museum and had the money to buy a collection of masterpieces for the Italianate palace she built.

Imagined letters to a fictional niece, Amelia, tie episodes together. Claire makes a Faustian deal to copy a fictional Degas painting that was included in the theft and becomes certain that it is actually a forgery through analysis of brushstrokes and early Degas sketches. Not only is the moral aspect of fairly common copying (reproductions) versus intentional forgery explored, but a glimpse of more cynical attitudes in the museum world surfaces. Discussions about the moral aspects of Claire’s trade and her life choices should make for good book-club meetings across the nation Shapiro, who has a background in sociology, education and software development, says in her online biography that she started writing novels with her mother’s encouragement after retiring with the birth of a second child. We read often about reinventing oneself as life brings changes. Shapiro has brought a combination of skills in writing and research to her career as a novelist and writer of four screenplays. This reader can certainly imagine a richly colored film based on the story of Claire Roth, art forger and conflicted woman in a specialized, glamorous world.

Littleton High senior honored at concert ‘Director threw a French horn at me,’ young musician jokes By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews. com Caroline Baker, a senior at Littleton High School, will be celebrated as the Young Artist contest winner when she performs with the Denver Concert Band on April 20 at the Lone Tree Arts Center. She will play Richard Strauss’ “Horn Concerto No. 1 in E Flat Major” with the band, conducted by associate director Ken Kopatich of Littleton, a retired Jefferson County music educator and longtime band member. Kopatich said the band sent out about 2,000 flyers to high school musicians throughout the state and Baker was the top contestant on what Kopatich describes as a difficult instrument. “You play six or seven notes with a valve, which requires a good ear,” he said.

IF YOU GO The Denver Concert Band will perform at 7:30 p.m. April 20 at Lone Tree Arts Center, 10075 Commons St., Lone Tree. Tickets: 720-5091000, lonetreeartscenter.org. Baker was a finalist in the Arapahoe Philharmonic’s Collegiate Concerto Competition, scoring well against college musicians. Contestants for the Denver Concert Band award submitted CDs or tapes initially, and the six finalists came for a live audition with judges who were high school and college music people. She says she took a couple of years of piano lessons, and in eighth grade at Goddard Middle School, she discovered she could skip gym if she played in the school orchestra. “The director (Mike Farrell) threw a French horn at me and the rest is history,” she says with a laugh. She played with her school orchestra through 10th grade at Littleton High School and then joined the Denver Young Artists Orchestra, where members have contact with Colorado Symphony

professionals. She also was a member of the All State Orchestra and All State Band, Kopatich said. Her director at Littleton High was Don Emmons, and she has studied privately with Susan McCullough, a French horn teacher at DU’s Lamont School of Music. She has been accepted by the highly selective Eastman School of Music in Rochester, N.Y. — a school that only accepts 13 percent of applicants each year. Baker’s summer plans include a return visit to the Kendall Betts Horn Camp in New Hampshire for three weeks of intensive training, plus another horn symposium. In addition to Baker’s concerto selection, the band, directed by Jacinda Bouton, will perform on a theme of “The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea,” with the satanic side represented by Robert W. Smith’s “Divine Comedy,” selections from “Wicked” and Philip Sparkes’ “Sunrise at Angel’s Gate.” The contrasting segment will include Sousa’s “Hands Across the Sea,” Richard Rodgers’ “Victory at Sea” and Karrick’s “See Rock City.”

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com “How cool to have a license to legitimately have fun! ... It’s hard work, yes — you develop a work ethic — but you never get to a place where it’s drudgery. … Playing music — if you’re not having fun, it’s not worth it.” Those are words of Marty Magehee, a veteran of the music industry and, as of 2011, on the faculty of Valor Christian High School in Highlands Ranch. He is scheduled to share his expertise by teaching a songwriting class for adults this spring. His enthusiasm is contagious. He is a gold album artist due to his long association with the Christian music quartet 4HIM, which traveled across the nation performing 250 and more concerts a year. “At five years, we leveled out at 250,” he said. “By then three of us were married and starting families. … In the 20 years we sang together we gave more than 4,200 concerts.” The group performed regularly in Colorado, and Magehee says when he was first married, he was writing songs about Colorado. Denver First Church of the Nazarene in Cherry Hills Village was a familiar stop.

Musician Marty Magehee, Valor Christian faculty member, will teach songwriting in a new adult education series. Courtesy photo At Valor Christian, he has developed a sophisticated recording studio where the class will meet. He calls it “makeshift” as he anticipates the building of a dedicated space in the projected new art building, which will be built as soon as funding is se-

cured. The goal for the class: Each student will have written or be part of writing several songs by the end. Development of a core idea, how to recognize “the money idea,” (an industry term), create 20 lines plus the

Lienemann said the Warriors also had a strong boys team. He said the distance runners will score points and he expects his young sprinters to score points for him. He said the Warriors have strong performers in several field events. Two Arapahoe athletes, Zachary Ray and Nathan Forest, helped their team as they finished one-two in the pole vault. Coach Art Vigil said the Littleton Lions have a talented boys team, but the majority of the girls team is young athletes. “The boys team is particularly strong in the sprints,” he said. “We have D’Angelo Deniro running in the 100 and the 200, plus we have a strong performer in Jack Robb, who runs the 400 and the 800.” Deniro and Robb joined forces with Jake Bergman and Barry Visser to win the 4 X 200 relay and reunited to win the 4 x 400. Lion

hurler Casey Thompson Comstock Thompson placed in the discus and won the shot put event. The Lions coach said the girls team has a lot of young athletes in individual events and will run well in relays. The coach’s prediction was on target as Rosa Hardason, Elizabeth Ballendonk, Emily Burch and Elizabeth Rothrock captures runner-up honors in the 4 x 400 relay. Vigil said he also expected Elsie Mangum to be a top contender in the discus and shot put. In the city meet, she won the shot put and finished third in discus. Heritage coach Kevin Young said he expects the Eagles to be competitive, but it is almost too early in the season to decide how good his top performers will be. However, he said the boys team includes quality depth in all areas, and Christian Martin should be a top contender in the long-distance races.

Casey Thompson-Comstock made a throw of 49 feet in the shot put competition at the March 5 Littleton track meet. The Littleton athlete’s throw earned him first place in the event. “We have good kids on the roster but the makeup of our relay teams is still a work in progress,” he said. “I expect it’ll take about a month of practices and meets to establish firm relay lineups.” However, his decision on who should team up for the 4 x 800 relay was on target, as the Eagles won the event. The team point total was also helped as Martin came on strong down the stretch to win the 1,600-meter run. Young said the Eagles girls roster is thin and most of the athletes are young. In the city meet, Logan Torres was third in the 100-meter dash while, in field events, Natalie Schoendaller took third in the shot put and in the discus.
