GOP assembly pares down field Former JeffCo lawmaker Kopp earns top line on primary ballot in gubernatorial race By Vic Vela

vvela@colorado communitymedia.com It took Republican delegates just one ballot over the weekend to pick from a crowded field of hopefuls looking to challenge Gov. John Hickenlooper this November — and one candidate in particular emerged as a surprise force in the race. Delegates who converged on Boulder for the Republican State

Assembly April 12 also picked candidates for other key statewide races. The results included the clearing of opposition to U.S. Rep. Cory Gardner, who can now set his sights exclusively on Democratic incumbent Mark Udall in the race for the Senate. Coming into the assembly, at least one gubernatorial candidate looked like a sure bet to get on the ballot — Secretary of State Scott Gessler. But delegates made room for another hopeful: former state Senate Minority Leader Mike Kopp. In a crowded GOP field, Kopp will have the top line when Republican voters fill out their ballots in the gubernatorial primary in June. That’s because Kopp

emerged with the top vote count among the 3,900-plus delegates. “It’s always nice to have the ‘big Mo,’” said Kopp, who represented the southern part of Jefferson County in the state Senate from 2007-11. “Our message worked, our organization worked. So, phase one is complete and now we’re excited to move into phase two.” Kopp’s nomination speech — held inside the University of Colorado’s Coors Events Center — took on a fighting theme. Kopp talked about being an underdog who takes down “giants” and referenced his own background as GOP continues on Page 24

Gala supports STEM learning Spirit Dinner raises more than $90,000 By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@colorado communitymedia.com Proving once again that the Littleton Public Schools community places a high value on education, it came together April 12 to raise a staggering $90,000 in just five hours. “This community brings me to tears,” said Mary McGlone, president of the Littleton Public Schools Foundation, which is matching the money raised that evening. “It’s amazing how open their hearts are and their wallets are.” LPSF hosts the annual Spirit Dinner every year, and this one broke all previous records. This year, the money is earmarked to help transform the district’s four middle schools into “STEM Centers,” focusing on science, technology, engineering and math. “It’s the whole future for all of these

STUDENTS LAUDED The following students were presented with LPS Foundation Spirit Scholarships during the annual gala on April 12, in memory of Heritage High School educator Karen Colwell: Madalyn Fania, Arapahoe High School Christine Kerr, Heritage High School Sarah Stevens, Littleton High School Alysa Hawkins, Options High School The following teachers were recognized as Innovative Educators: Maggie Ward, Moody Elementary School Jill Day, Wilder Elementary School Brooke Jacobsma-Wolf, Centennial Academy of Fine Arts Lauren Wenberg, Hopkins Elementary School Tammy Escue, Twain Elementary School Marnie Jordan, Powell Middle School Julia Montano, Field Elementary School Heather Cotham, Pathways Middle School Kent Sauls, Heritage High School kids,” said Brian Vogt, executive director of Denver Botanic Gardens and emcee for the evening. “It’s what they have to

do really fundamentally to make it in this world.” It’s a lofty goal that will cost about $200,000 per school to attain, but the projects displayed by kids on Innovation Avenue prove they are worthy of the investment. From kindergarten email pals to high-schoolers riding a hovercraft powered by a leaf blower, they showed a level of enthusiasm that far outpaced the grownups’ understanding of the technology that is new to them but that the kids have never lived without. “If you look closely, you see creativity and relevance,” said Clay Abla, LPS director of secondary education. He said the centers will build an environment that will serve as a gateway to exploratory learning, and middle school minds are ripe for self-empowerment and collaboration. “They begin to seek richer learning experiences as they begin to envision their own lives,” said Abla. “Our students’ futures do depend on this.

The Centennial City Council unanimously approved a ban on commercial recreational marijuana, including retail shops, on April 14 after a second reading and public hearing. The ordinance bans commercial sale and growth of recreational marijuana, although per state law it allows for personal growth inside the home — up to six plants per person, no more than 30 in a home — in a locked, enclosed space. In the wake of the passage of Amendment 64, the council passed a year-long moratorium on recreational marijuana last year, set to expire in September, in anticipation of a new council and to gather public input, according to city attorney Robert Widner. “A strong majority of the municipality favored a ban,” Widner said. During a public hearing, resident Bob Doyle, executive director of the Colorado Tobacco Education and Prevention Alliance and leader of anti-marijuana group Project SAM, applauded the ordinance. “What’s happening in our state is tragic,” Doyle said. “We are mass producing hash oil, marijuana dust — which I didn’t even know existed until a month ago — and other insanely potent forms of marijuana.” Doyle pointed to statistics of high marijuana usage in Denver public schools and said that “it sadly has never been easier for a child to fall into drug use, especially marijuana.” “This is what’s happening, it’s happening underneath here. And we should be proud that Centennial is taking a stand,” Doyle said. “This is the next tobacco industry unless we stop it one community at a time.” The only other person to speak during the public hearing, resident David City continues on Page 24

Portrait of peace a work in progress The lyrics drift softly through the quiet, cobblestoned courtyard. “Good day, sunshine good day, sunshine gooood day, sunshine…” A youngish man with vivid blue eyes, in faded jeans and black velvet jacket, strums a guitar and sings, the music stand in front of him holding a repertoire of Beatles songs, at his feet a black hat for donations from appreciative listeners. He seems oblivious to the people milling around, hearing only the melodies and words that lift him beyond the wall that stretches behind. But the wall, which is why he is here, can’t be ignored. It is a psychedelic, graphic explosion of color, an ever-changing riot of words and swirling graffiti’s reason for being has been long buried under more than 30 years of layers of paint. For those who remember, though, like Jan, 36, the guitarist who wouldn’t give his last name, the wall, just across from the French Embassy in Prague, is testament to the energizing and lasting power of the universal ideal of peace — even if the passage of time has somewhat obscured the message. The Lennon Wall. Also known as the Peace Wall. Or the Graffiti Wall. “It’s really getting twisted,” Jan says of how the wall is viewed by thousands who visit each year. “It bothers the local people — they don’t like the way it is now… But I’m sure John Lennon would like it this way. I don’t think he would have liked to have his face on it.”

That’s how the wall, the phenomenon, the government, always at night. Police started — with an immense portrait of continued to obliterate their efforts during John Lennon following his death on Dec. the day. 8, 1980.

in the world for legal graffiti. “It changes. In 15 minutes, it’ll probably be something completely different.” Kayleigh McAdams, 20, who is visiting Margolis and was a huge Beatles fan as a child, felt it was important to see the wall and leave something significant behind. Near the sidewalk, she painted “Infinitum Nihil,” Latin for “nothing is forever,” as she interprets it. The saying, representative of past events in her life, is tattooed on her right foot. “It’s just a meaningful thing that I try to live by each day,” she says, hoping “somebody will actually be able to read it and know what it means.” Jan, the guitarist, has sung at the wall for the past three tourist seasons. The season depends on the weather — the nicer it is, the longer the season. Last year, the cold stayed away and he played and sang for eight months. He has loved Beatles music since he was a boy. “It’s my favorite band,” he says simply. “I like the vibe…” As a Prague native, he has watched the wall’s evolution. It could be no other way than how it is today, he says. Free. Open to anyone to paint anything. “It’s the only way you can keep it,” he says. “Otherwise, it would be a museum with John Lennon’s face and rope. It would be … boring.” But if he could give those who visit a thought to leave with, it would be this: “Give peace a chance, in your mind, in your mind … it’s not always easy.” On this day, as sunlight filters through trees just beginning to leaf, “Love is a beautiful chaos” leaps from the wall in bold, red paint. And if you look closely, you’ll spot a blue face of John Lennon in a corner. No matter what is painted, Margolis says, Lennon’s face can always be found amid the crazy quilt of expression, a soft and subtle reminder of why the wall even

Brackney headed to marketing firm Ex-president of chamber will specialize in networking By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@coloradocommunitymedia.com John Brackney, former president and CEO of the South Metro Denver Chamber of Commerce, will start the next phase of his career at the Greenwood Village marketing firm Webolutions. “Webolutions is a dynamic and powerful agency that has created a culture to be on the forefront of innovation and design in business transformation,” Brackney said in a news release April 11. “Webolutions is a thought leader and is superb at recognizing trends and then implementing strategies to position their clients to be at the top of their industries.” Brackney unexpectedly announced his resignation from the chamber March 24. “In order for the chamber to take new steps, the time has come for me to pass the torch to a new generation of leaders. I am resigning as CEO,” he wrote in an email at the time. “It has been an awesome ride, one I have appreciated and cherished every day.” Webolutions CEO John Vachalek is a former president of the chamber’s board of directors. “After working closely with John Brackney at the South Metro Denver Chamber and sharing our thoughts and ideas about

how successful businesses and organizations need to position themselves in this social age of relationships and brand transparency, I am thrilled to be able to pioneer these offerings together as part of a fully integrated strategic marketing solution,” Vachalek said in the news release. Brackney will fill a newly created position for the firm, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, as director of strategic community and government engagement, basically serving as a networking guru. Vachalek says Brackney’s main function Brackney will be to help strategically connect executives, businesses and organizations within the community. “Technology has changed, but people and businesses still desire positive relationships and connectivity within their community,” said Brackney. “Our intent is to fully complete marketing strategies for companies and organizations to generate bottom-line results through strategic engagement.” Brackney began his journey with the chamber 17 years ago as a member. He was hired six years later, then became president in 2004. A Littleton native, Brackney earned his bachelor’s degree in political science from the University of Northern Colorado and a law degree from the University of Den-

in the formation of the city of Centennial. They recently launched Common Sense Citizens, born of their personal frustration with what they call the debilitating effects of today’s extreme polarization in politics. The two also were founding members of the Greater Littleton Youth Initiative.

Centennial location one of Conn’s first two Colorado stores Staff report A national retailer has again picked the south metro area as the site of one of its first Colorado locations. Conn’s, which sells home appliances, furnishings and electronics, has announced it will open a store in Centennial on April 26. The Texasbased retailer also will open a store in Aurora that same day. Between the two locations, the company expects to create 120 jobs by September. “We’re excited to bring the Conn’s HomePlus experience to Colorado,” David Trahan, president of the retail division, said in a news release. “We’re a fresh alternative for people who are looking for high-quality, affordable products.” The 36,000-square-foot Centennial store is located at 9555 E. County Line Road, less than a mile from the state’s first IKEA, which opened in 2011. “We are pleased to have a major retailer like Conn’s opening in the Centennial Promenade and are happy to welcome Conn’s to Colorado and our community,” said Centennial Mayor Cathy Noon. The Aurora store is at 60 South Abilene St. The retailer plans a promotion at both stores on opening day: The first 100 people to visit each location will receive a $100 Conn’s gift card, according to the news release announcing the openings.

Workers were busy April 11 preparing the interior of the new Conn’s store in Centennial for the planned April 26 opening. Photo by Chris Rotar Conn’s has more than 75 retail locations in Texas, Arizona, Louisiana, Oklahoma and New Mexico. In addition to the two initial locations in

Colorado, the 120-year-old company stated in the release it is considering stores in Arvada, Fort Collins, Colorado Springs and Sheridan.

By Vic Vela

vvela@coloradocommunitymedia.com A bill that would create a felony DUI in Colorado is gaining momentum at the Capitol. The House on April 10 gave initial approval to legislation that would require prison time for drunken drivers who rack up their third DUI in a seven-year period, or for their fourth total. The bill would create a class 4 felony for such offenses, which carries a possible prison term of two to six years. Colorado is one of only a handful of states that does not have a felony DUI law. The bill sponsor, Rep. Mark Waller, RColorado Springs, has been trying for the last few years to pass this type of legislation. However, his efforts have hit stumbling blocks, primarily due to the incarceration costs that come with the bill. “It does cost money to engage in the protection of the individuals of the state of Colorado,” Waller said. This year’s effort carries a hefty price tag as well. Last week, the House Appropriations Committee approved $2.9 million in

general fund dollars for the bill to become a part of next year’s budget. The cost to the state will increase substantially over the next few years. The cost will rise to at least $15 million and then at least $26.8 million in subsequent fiscal years, according to an analysis by the Legislative Council. Rep. Dan Pabon, D-Denver, thanked those who worked “so hard to find this money.” “This is an expensive bill,” Pabon said. “This is an expensive cost to incarcerate this many offenders. And this money isn’t just found.” Helping the legislation move forward was a compromise on treatment options that came out of a recent House Judiciary Committee hearing. The compromise came about from growing concern over the bill not focusing enough on helping alcoholics and drug addicts receive treatment. The House gave initial approval of the bill following an unrecorded voice vote on April 10. The bill was scheduled for a final vote on April 14, and was expected to advance to the Senate with large bipartisan support.

opinions / yours and ours

Your choice: Live it up or give it up If you can hear it or see it, flee it or at least take cover. That’s what we are told about lightning, right? But let’s pretend we saw it and heard it in the distance as we were on a hike in somewhat of a remote wilderness and mountainous area. We saw the collectiveness of darkness in the clouds, saw the brilliant flashes of lightning, felt the wind trailing away from us, and everything seemed like it was OK to continue forward as we were following the storm, not really in its path. And then, just as we are feeling safe enough to forge ahead in our hike as we see the storm in the distance moving farther and farther away from us, we failed to recognize the storm that was following directly behind us. By the time the lightning strike hits close enough, the concussive power of the strike is enough to knock us to the ground in an instant.

This is exactly what happened to a friend of mine Alan, an accomplished hiker and someone who keeps himself in great shape. He was hiking alone, camping overnight, and along his way to complete his journey when he was knocked to the ground by a lightning strike that hit too close to home. Alan broke his shoulder during the fall, then managed to make his way out to an area where his phone and equipment would allow him to communi-

cate with his family and search crew. Alan’s story is amazing, but what amazed me most was meeting him in the gym and watching him working out and finding out that he still climbs 14ers here in Colorado and spends time distance running and keeping in shape. And all of this within months of having shoulder surgery. Here’s my point … when lightning strikes you or near you, what happens? And if you get knocked down, do you get right back on your journey or do you get discouraged and give up? Maybe your lightning comes in the form of a lost job, broken relationship, missed opportunity, or any other such lightning-like event. Maybe your lightning is a positive thing like winning the lottery or achieving an unexpected level of success. Either way, does it knock you to the ground or elevate

you to a new position in life that somehow changes you? Alan’s example is awesome because he demonstrated that regardless of what happens to us in life, it is our choice to either resume who we are and what we do in life, or we choose to quit and make excuses. He continued his pursuit of hiking and fitness and the enjoyment of the outdoors. What would you choose? Have you had a life-changing moment recently? How did you respond? I would love to hear all about it at gotonorton@ gmail.com and when we choose to get back up after being knocked down, it really will be a better than good week.

Sacrifice can feel good

Call right now and I’ll throw in a Bacon Wave This column is a $49.99 value, but if you read it within the next 10 minutes it’s yours absolutely free. You have seen those ads. Something is a $49.99 value — determined by whom? — but if you call RIGHT now (it’s 3 a.m.), it’s yours at a huge discount. But we’re not through. If you call right away, we’ll send you two for the price of one, plus a set of crummy steak knives, a couple of cheap stick-on lights, and some Ankle Genies. The dachshund and I stare at the screen and wonder who surrenders to these advertisements. Here in Colorado, possibly some of those who are celebrating Amendment 64. I will admit, later, to being tempted by one of them. Everything being sold is indispensable and invariably easy to clean up. There is something called a Bacon Wave, which is stackable, which means that you can cook up to 28 pieces of bacon at once. That’s a lot of bacon. The only problem is that you have to fit the bacon into little cranberry red or harvest gold slots. Who wants to do that on Sunday morning? A No!no! is neither a razor nor a laser. It is a long-term hair removal device. Before you order one, take a look at the reviews on Amazon. Out of 470, there are 306 onestar reviews. The Better Business Bureau has received over 180 formal complaints about the product in the past three years. I have a confession to make. Smoke alarms and I do not get along. They are a pain in the neck. I need to get up on a ladder. But first I have to identify which one is going off, signaling a low battery. They are little ventriloquists. So I came up with The Lo-Cator, an alarm that would have a light that blinked

when the battery needed to be replaced. I looked into a patent, and received the paperwork from the U.S. Patent Office. I had the idea but I didn’t have the specifications or a diagram, nothing. So I contacted one of those invention outfits that will take your idea and fill in the blanks and come up with specs and even an ad campaign, with targeted outlets, from print to late-night television. All you have to do is give them a raft of money. My memory is a bit dim, like a weak battery in a smoke alarm, but I think I had to give the patent office some money simply to apply, and some money to the invention company, just to see if the product had potential. I conceded that I was in over my head, and shut it all down. The invention company, however, did not want to let me go, and I received daily phone calls. If I had the money back then, you would probably have a half-dozen LoCators in your home right now. It was not one of the brightest periods of my life. Artists spend a lot of money in an attempt to make money, but it rarely happens. And here I was adding expenses to those expenses.

Fasting is not supposed to feel good and for those giving something up during Lent, don’t quit now, there are only a few more days. According to Christianity.About.com, not all Christian churches observe Lent. Lent is mostly observed by the Lutheran, Methodist, Presbyterian and Anglican denominations and also by Roman Catholics. Eastern Orthodox churches observe Lent or Great Lent, during the six weeks or 40 days preceding Palm Sunday with fasting continuing during the Holy Week of Orthodox Easter. Lent for Eastern Orthodox churches begins on Monday (called Clean Monday) and Ash Wednesday is not observed. The Bible does not mention the custom of Lent, however, the practice of repentance and mourning in ashes is found throughout the Holy Scriptures. This year for Lent, I gave up carbohydrates, not just sweets. So as much as I enjoy potatoes, pasta and bread, they were out of my diet for the whole time and I did miss them. Some nights I just wanted a scoop of ice cream and the thought of sacrificing something seemed totally unnecessary. “I worked hard today and don’t ask for much. Don’t I deserve a little treat here at the end of the day?” That thought process made perfect sense to me. But as I used a little will power to do something that probably was good for me anyway, I began to lose weight and feel better. I recognize that my discipline was minimal compared to our Wounded Warriors or faithful spouses of a sick

husband or wife or devoted parents of a troubled or addicted child. My little “saying no” was part of a spiritual discipline to help me take a more thoughtful approach to the events of Holy Week and build up my anticipation and appreciation for the celebration of Jesus’ resurrection from the dead and victory over death on Easter morning. Observing a Lenten fast, my discoveries as a Hospice Chaplain and enduring a challenging chapter of life converged to reveal the value of facing negative emotions and experiencing the questions and pain that are present in life. For most of my life I have avoided and denied negative emotions and did almost anything I could to experience feel good emotionally. But that leads to an overall superficiality and a lack of profound compassion. Jerry Sittser in his book, “A Grace Disguised: How the Soul Grows through Loss,” writes, “The soul is elastic, like a balloon. It can grow larger through suffering.” Grief counselors guide people through, not around the pain that comes from loss. Hettinger continues on Page 9

Republicans can’t win in budget vote The Colorado General Assembly recently took up the state’s annual budget bill, also known as the “Long Bill.” More than 40 amendments were introduced in the House of Representatives, many by Republicans to make sure your tax dollars were going to be spent responsibly. Nearly every Republican amendment was rejected by the Democratic majority, and the final bill passed on a nearly party-line vote out of the House. The sole Republican voting “yes” was a member of the Joint Budget Committee who all vote for the Long Bill by tradition. Before the debate began, the Republican Caucus aimed to accomplish three objectives with the Long Bill: We wanted to save for our future; invest in our state infrastructure; and return funds by restoring cuts made to K-12 education. Your Republican representatives pushed hard to reduce the negative factor (a calculation of the cuts that were made to K-12 education during the recession) by $10 million to $35 million. Additionally, we offered an amendment that would have boosted funding for the Colorado College Opportunity Fund (COF). Had the amendment passed, the additional funding would have reduced tuition for Colo-

rado students on a dollar-for-dollar basis. House Minority Leader Brian DelGrosso, R-Loveland, also led the charge to boost one-time funding for investment in repairing roads and bridges in Colorado. This would have created jobs and improved road safety in our state. However, the Democrats remained unified in their opposition to these common-sense proposals and ensured money was protected for their own pet projects. The partisanship in this process was beyond belief. There was no cooperation with Republicans and nearly every effort by our caucus to improve the budget was blocked by the Democratic majority. It is worth noting that under Democratic leadership, the Long Bill has become increasingly partisan. Under Republican House Speaker Frank McNulty,

the 2012 Long Bill passed on a vote of 64-1. The next year, under current Democratic leadership, the vote was 45-18 and this year’s bill only garnered one Republican “yes” vote, who was bound by tradition to support the bill. Fortunately, there were some victories for our caucus in the debate over the Long Bill. House Bill 1337, which was companion legislation to the Long Bill, increases the General Fund reserve to 6.5 percent and received broad bipartisan support. Assistant Minority Leader Libby Szabo, R-Arvada, got two critical amendments passed to the Long Bill, which will prevent the use of state welfare ATM cards at strip clubs and marijuana dispensaries. Additionally, Reps. Don Coram, R-Montrose, and Jerry Sonnenberg, R-Sterling, received enough support to fund their proposal to manage and mitigate a nonnative, invasive species of tree that consumes large quantities of water and has devastated areas of rural Colorado. Rep. Polly Lawrence, R-Roxborough, garnered enough support to fund her bill, House Bill 1158, which will set mandatory minimum sentences for vehicular homicides and assaults that result from driving under the influence. The first week of April, the Senate debated

the Long Bill and amended it to include increased funding for expanded community and family support services. Additionally, there was a bipartisan proposal, led by Sen. Steve King, R-Grand Junction, to provide funding for a state-owned and -operated firefighting air corps, to aid in fighting future wildfires. They sent their version back to the House. It has since gone through a Conference Committee made up of representatives and senators, where a compromise on differences between the two chambers’ versions was reached. Please mark your calendars for my next town hall meeting, which will be joint with Rep. Spencer Swalm, R-Centennial, on April 26 at 1:30 p.m. at Koelbel Library, 5955 S. Holly St. in Centennial. Our special guest speaker will be a representative from CDOT who will be updating us on the new toll roads with Highway 36 and C-470.

rates have many bond investors frustrated. They are not getting the yields they are used to and the concern is that when rates do finally rise, their bond values will fall. However, the first few months of 2014 proved this theory wrong. When stocks tumbled, bonds started to recover. This shows that diversified portfolios that hold non-correlated instruments are very important in your portfolio. If interest rates rise gradually, and at the same time there is moderate and increasing growth in the economy, then bonds could still fare quite well. The shorter duration is less risky and adding other types of equities and alternatives to your portfolio will help keep you balanced. This is a good time

to review your accounts with your advisor to determine how much fixed income you need to be represented by bonds and in what duration and yield.

Bonds are mixed bag, but important Bonds are an oxymoron as they have many conflicting parts. Investors have typically used bonds in the past for ways to provide a relatively stable stream of income, usually in retirement years. They can also be used as a hedge against other investments, such as stocks or real estate, in a diversified portfolio. But bonds have been getting a bad rap after last year’s losses, based on concerns of rising interest rates. This is part of what makes bonds contradictory and confusing — because they often work opposite of a stock or equity investment. A bond is basically a 10-, 20-, or 30-year loan or an IOU issued by a corporation or government entity. These are usually issued to raise money. When you purchase a bond, you are giving the issuer your money to use and they will pay you interest in return. The longer the term, the more vulnerable you are that interest rates will change over that period of time, and perhaps you could have gotten a better deal with another issuer when interest rates rise. Therefore the value of a bond declines when interest rates rise. This can be due to the fact that your bond is now worth less when you go to sell it because it is still paying last year’s interest rate. If you are seeking a more competitive interest rate,

There will be services in many churches around town on the Thursday and Friday before Easter. Friday, known as Good Friday, recognizes the historical event of the crucifixion of Jesus. The night before that was the Last Supper with the disciples, a washing of feet and the betrayal. It is my honor to speak to this event at the church I attend, Greenwood Community Church, on Thursday. The first Maundy Thursday was an evening filled with perplexing revelations, excruciating tasks and a shocking turn of events. The Passover moon lit the garden but darkness permeated the events and emotions of the Sacrificial Lamb and his frightened followers.

then so will the next buyer want that higher rate as well. Therefore, to unload the bond in a rising interest rate environment, you could end up taking less than full value. Investors hold bonds for two main reasons: to provide income and to provide a hedge against equity based investing. Since a bond is a debt instrument, it has the potential to behave opposite of an equity or stock investment. One main reason this occurs is when there is economic growth, stocks can rise in value along with growing consumerism. When the economy expands due to more spending, interest rates start to rise along with potential inflation and growth. When rates increase, the value of the bond declines, which leaves the bond holder with a lower market value. The last few years of painfully low interest

Healthy emotional life and a salvation experience requires the dark and demented emotions of that night. It doesn’t make sense. Words fail us. Our thoughts swirl in confusion looking for an answer. For that time we feel alone, unanswered, even betrayed by God. But it is a dark night of the soul we must travel through. It won’t feel good and it is not supposed to, but we will be more authentic in our emotions and wise in our approach to God and life. Then Resurrection celebration will be mature because the joy of our soul will have experienced the reality our need and pain and that will feel good.

School funding measures move forward House passes bills that pump close to $500 million into K-12 schools in Colorado By Vic Vela vvela@coloradocommunitymedia. com A pair of funding measures that will provide schools with nearly $500 million in new revenue passed the House with bipartisan support last week. Although the bills received Republican votes, several House GOP members raised concerns that the efforts don’t go far enough in backfilling recession-era budget cuts, or giving school districts more control over financial and transparency matters. The bills passed the House on April 1o, with lawmakers first giving overwhelming bipartisan support to the Student Success Act. The bill would

provide $20 million aimed at helping kids meet mandated third-grade reading standards and adds $13 million in funding for charter school facilities. The bill also incorporates $40 million in retail marijuana revenue that will go toward school construction in rural parts of the state. The legislation will also provide schools with $110 million of the money that was stripped away by the Legislature during lean budget years. “(The bill) begins the process of rebuilding K-12 funding that was struck hard during the past five years of Colorado’s recession, within the parameters of our current state budget,” said Rep. Millie Hamner, D-Dillon, a bill sponsor. The House also passed the annual School Finance act. The bill increases per-pupil funding by 2.8 percent; funds an additional 5,000 seats for preschool and full-day kindergarten programs; and pumps $30 million into English language learning programs.

The House passed the Student Success Act on a 51-14 vote and the School Finance Act by a vote of 3926. Lawmakers who voted against the bills were Republicans. House Republicans tried pulling money from reading and early childhood education programs, so that school districts could have greater flexibility in how the funds are spent, with few strings attached. The Republican efforts failed, with members from the majority party arguing that it’s wrong to strip funding from the programs that need it. Republicans also spent a great deal of time arguing against a Democratsponsored amendment aimed at providing greater transparency over how school districts are spending state dollars. Republicans offered a softer transparency amendment, out of concern that Democrats were burdening school districts with too many requirements. That effort failed.

Lone Tree schedule announced

The Lone Tree Arts Center unveiled its 2014-15 season on April 7 and it will include more than 50 different productions in its fourth season. LTAC will continue to produce its own theatrical series, Guys and Dolls in Concert, Home for the Holidays and The 39 Steps. These three shows follow in the footsteps of such successful productions as Hank Williams: Lost Highway and Sylvia. The balance of the season (which starts Oct. 22-26 with the Guys and Dolls Concert) features national and international touring groups as well as outstanding regional performing organizations such as Wonderbound, Buntport Theatre, and the Colorado Symphony. Perhaps the biggest coup for the LTAC will be the performance by international opera star Nathan Gunn, who will give an intimate recital in the 500-seat venue. “Our rapidly growing audiences are hungry for a wide range of culture and entertainment and the 2014-15 season features a very full plate of offerings designed to satisfy all kinds of tastes,” said Executive Director Lisa Rigsby Peterson. “We see our role as serving as a welcoming Parker continues on Page 13

Native American Sportsmen dance for, educate area scouts By Ryan Boldrey

rboldrey@coloradocommunitymedia.com Respect Mother Earth. Honor those who came before you and serve you. Honor the Great Creator, Jesus, Jehovah or whomever you pray to. Respect your neighbors and their cultural differences. “Just because they may pray in a different way to a different God or are praying for different things, doesn’t mean they are praying to a different spiritual being or should be viewed differently or that they are weird,” said Sid Whiting, 53, a Lakota elder to a group of young scouts April 9 in Castle Pines. Whiting was among seven visitors from the Denver-based Native American Sportsmen Association that shared life lessons, danced and drummed for Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts from Pack and Troop 856, their families and community members who

stopped by DCS Montessori for the hourlong presentation. Whiting, whose family helped start the Denver Indian Center and the Tall Bull Memorial Grounds in Daniels Park, said the sportsmen association’s mission is to “educate non-natives and natives about the spiritual, cultural, physical and mental Native American beliefs.” On April 9, he and others did just that. Steve Lapoint, Whiting’s stepson, spoke with those in attendance about the place of many Native Americans in today’s society. He talked to the youth about his own military service as well as the service of many Native Americans before him, including the famous Code Talkers who helped the United States become victorious in World War II. Lapoint and Whiting then demonstrated a dance done to honor those who have sacrificed their life in battle both as Native warriors and American soldiers. Erlidawn Roy, who is Ojibwa, Pueblo and Meskwaki, also danced for the crowd. She has been teaching others about her

culture since she was in middle school. “I was the only native in school, so I started giving cultural awareness lessons to my peers,” she said. “I was going to powwows every weekend and was always tired on Mondays at school, so I felt I needed to explain why.” Whiting focused much of his energy with the scouts on emphasizing the need to care for Mother Earth. “It is our duty to watch out for her,” he said. “Use everything she gives you, but don’t take more than you need. She doesn’t need us, but we need her.” Whiting talked of how when an animal is killed for food none gets wasted. He pointed to the bones and feathers that made up his regalia and said those are examples of how different pieces get reused and how that animal gets honored. “Some day I won’t be able to dance anymore,” said Robert Ironshield, a 45-yearold Hunkpapa Lakota who has drummed and sang his whole life and danced since he was 16. “I dance for people who can’t dance anymore.”

In an analysis of tips by customers of the GrubHub delivery service, for the year from March 28, 2013, to March 27, 2014, Colorado (15.7 percent) finished third among the states, behind South Carolina (16.1) and New Hampshire (16). And the most generous cities in the survey were all from Colorado. Boulder tipped 16.2 percent on average, followed by Denver at 15.7 percent and Fort Collins at 15.4 percent. It’s unclear why the Centennial State cities are so nice to the delivery person. “We have no idea why that is, but a hat tip to Colorado diners for their generosity,” company spokeswoman Allie Mack said.

Come with questions. Come as you are.

His Life… Our Hope

If you think of Jesus as one of those stained-glass saints – think again. He surprised, shocked and challenged those who abused power, and opened doors to those who had been excluded. He not only turned the tables, he turned over tables. If you are ready to experience an UNEXPECTED Jesus who split calendars in half, then don’t miss Easter Sunday.

Historic building marks milestone By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@colorado communitymedia.com J.D. Royals of Greenwood Village was inspired to write a poem about the charming red brick schoolhouse on East Orchard Road near South University Boulevard, which begins its second century as a village landmark. An excerpt: “… Some buildings carry themselves in such a manner

That they need no reason to be, other than that their Purpose is to serve. Small, blocky, old-fashioned, simple, red brick in color: Who would have thought, one hundred years ago, that that would not be enough?...” On May 3, a celebration is planned (rain or shine) at the Curtis Arts and Humanities Center and the adjoining Curtis Park, 2349

E. Orchard Road, Greenwood Village. The historic building will be filled with contemporary art by Greenwood Village artists (reception 5:30-7 p.m. May 10, when a Colorado Honors Band Quintet will perform and there will also be poetry readings and music by harpist Colleen Trainor). In the park, one will find Model T Fords, kite demonstrations and kite making. Historical and museum demonstrations will include butter churning, ice cream making, spinning and children’s art activities. The Grace Notes and the Rootin’ Tootins Dixieland Jazz Band will perform period music. Hot dogs, pop-

corn and lemonade will be on sale at a low price. The Greenwood Village Newsletter tells us that in 1901, Mary J. Curtis, an area resident, donated an acre of land where a one-room frame school was built for 10 children from three local families. In 1914, it was replaced with the brick building, with an addition in 1931. At first, there was no electricity or water (the janitor brought water from home for drinks). Gradually, electricity, plumbing and a small kitchen were installed and the school continued as a center for the community. In 1967, as part of the Littleton Public School District,

Orchard Road, will involve a festive day on May 3 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. plus an exhibit of art work by Greenwood Vilit was closed and children were transferred to more modern schools, with gyms. (Parents of Curtis students maintained that they’d prefer to have their kids play outside in the sunshine.) It served as a community center, church and town hall until 1987, when the next-door church, which owned the land, decided to expand and planned to demolish the structure.

It is on the National Register of Historic Places.

Bruins stay perfect in league play Cherry Creek upends Columbine, 17-3, in girls lacrosse showdown By Tom Munds

tmunds@coloradocommunitymedia. com Cherry Creek’s girls lacrosse team scored early and often as they posted a 17-3 win over Columbine in an April 12 Centennial League game. “Early in the season we lost two games back to back to a pair of very good teams. I think, from there, the girls decided to leave that behind them and focus on coming together as a good team,” Cherry Creek coach Bree Tierney said about her 6-4 Bruins. “The trip to California over spring break was a great team-building experience for our players. We were 1-2 (but played) against excellent lacrosse teams. I think in those games the girls saw what we needed to improve to be a very good lacrosse team.” The win over Columbine elevated Cherry Creek’s Centennial League record to 3-0. But the coach, not wanting her girls to get too excited, reminded the players afterward that they were slated to play perennial state contender Kent Denver April 16 before hosting Cleveland Heights High School (Ohio) April 19. The Bruins then get back to league play April 23 when they host Arapahoe. On April 12, Cherry Creek immediately took control of the tempo, scoring just 56 seconds into the game for a 1-0 lead. The Bruins kept the pressure on as they continuously won possession of loose balls and connected on long passes, resulting in most of the game being played on the Columbine side of midfield as the Bruins built a 9-1 advantage by halftime. The second half was pretty much a repeat of the first even with Tierney substituting liberally to get all of her reserves valuable varsity game experience. The Bruins varied the attack, peppering 31 shots on net with nine Cherry Creek play-

Blair Sisk and Sarah Cromer each had three goals and three assists while Chloe deGrasse scored two goals and had a pair of assists to lead the way for the Bruins. Olivia List and Nell List each had two goals and two assists. “It was a good game for me and for our team today,” Sisk said, smiling about her hat trick. “Lacrosse is my game. I love it. ... As a midfielder, I move forward in support of the attack and I move down the field to help us defend our goal.” The senior said conditioning is very important for midfielders because they are

the only players who can legally run from one end of the field to the other. So, she said the team does a lot of conditioning as part of every practice. She noted the focus is building the stamina players must have to go full speed every shift on the field. She said her favorite shot is a secret but she said she likes to make a fake one way to draw the goalie’s attention then shoot to the other side. Bruin senior Taylia Tandler said she found her lacrosse home as a defender. “Over the years, I have played most positions on a lacrosse team but I really like playing defense,” she said after the game.

Arapahoe’s Wood tees up a title shot Senior brings national experience to high school golf stage By Jim Benton

jbenton@colorado communitymedia.com Arapahoe senior Hannah Wood has played in several high profile national golf tournaments. Now she is just out to have fun playing high school golf although she admits there is still plenty of competition and pressure in the prep tourneys. “I’m just trying to have fun,” said Wood who won the 2012 Kathy Whitworth Invitational — the junior girls golf championship held in Fort Worth, Texas. “Now that I’ve been on this new level of national tournaments I want to lighten it up a little bit.” Arapahoe coach Pat Wilson has no doubts that Wood will succeed. “Her work ethic is incredible,” said Wilson. “She works hard but she’s humble. A few minutes ago somebody was complimenting her and she got shy about it. “She’s the kind of kid you

want in high school athletics. She was our basketball manager a couple years ago when Arapahoe’s boys took second in state. She took that defeat as hard as the players. She cares about her school, she cares about her teammates, she’s been a pleasure to have in the program for four years.” Wood also cares about golf and will playing at the University of Oklahoma next season. Before she gets there, however, she would like to improve on her Colorado state tournament performances after finishing second in 2012 and third last season. “I feel it will all come together soon enough and a little bit of everything needs to be worked on,” said Wood. “I probably need to learn to play in the wind a little bit better. In Oklahoma it will be pretty windy. “I am the fifth generation in my family to be playing golf. I kind of grew up on the golf course, just tee it in the middle of the fairway and go from there. I actually learned beginning golf on the putting green.” Putting will be important once the Class 5A state tournament rolls around May 19-20 at Raccoon Creek Golf Club,

“I feel comfortable as a defender and I like helping direct the team.” She said defense is one of the key elements in winning lacrosse games. “I like working to close off attack lanes and to make interceptions to get the ball back for our team,” she said. “I love lacrosse. I do run cross country in the fall to stay in shape but my sport is lacrosse.’ She said her goal is to be the best leader she can be as the only senior on defense. She said she would also like to score a goal this season.

Cherry Creek junior right on pace Colter wins 1600 meter run at Mullen High’s Runners Roost By Jim Benton

jbenton@coloradocommunitymedia. com Nobody can blame Jordyn Colter for thinking positive. The 5-foot-1, 80-pound Cherry Creek junior won the 1600-meter invitational heat April 12 at Mullen’s Runners Roost track meet. “This sounds funny but being healthy and being able to run is an amazing thing,” said Colter. “Win or lose, people should just be proud of getting out there.” Colter’s first three years of cross country and track have been filled with agony and ecstasy. As a freshman, she was a dominant runner, winning the Class 5A state cross country championship. Colter looked like a sure bet to make it two consecutive state cross country titles as a sophomore, but she collapsed while holding a sizable lead in the race. She was taken to the hospital where it was determined Colter was low in sodium and potassium plus had a high white blood cell count, which accounted for her breakdown.

Colter, last spring’s 1600 meter Class 5A state track champ, was a disappointing 53rd in the 2013 state cross country championships but once again her body was delivering a warning sign. “After state cross country last fall and finishing really bad, I had to take three months off because I was sick with mono,” explained Colter. “I had mono at the state cross country championships. Those three months of doing nothing just taught me so much to appreciate running for what it is, appreciate your ability to even be able to run.” Colter ran well and passed West Grand’s Tabor Scholl after the final turn of the 1600-meter race at the Mullen meet to win with a time of 5:01.84. Scholl clocked in at 5:02.19. “I wanted to win it and when I saw Tabor taking it I thought stay behind her, try to pass her on the straight,” said Colter who had the second best overall time of 2:11.89 in the 800 meter run. “I couldn’t pass her there so I just waited until the turn to see what I had. “Coming back after such a long break and being able to run with these girls is so amazing. No matter what I run, I’m just happy to be here.” Colter is learning how to be more prepared for big meets. “My coach (Ethan Dusto) is making

Cherry Creek’s Jordyn Colter, second from right, won the 1600-meter run April 12 at Mullen. Photo by Jim Benton workout plans for me that make sure I get a lot of rest,” explained Colter. “If after a workout I’m not feeling good, we’ll drop the pace. I’ve been running good this year. “As a runner you kind of have to learn how hard you can push yourself. I pushed myself too hard the past two years. It’s not worth it. I’m just learning how to take easy

days as easy days and really resting my body. It’s working in my favor. I’m just going to try to stay in good shape, drop time every weekend and see where it gets me.” Colter’s teammate Ashley Miller also won the 100-meter hurdles in 13.87 seconds.

Annual Small Business Leadership Awards By Natalie Harden, South Metro Denver SBDC

Jim Saccomano

Jim Saccomano, recently retired Broncos Vice President of Corporate Communications, will be accepting the South Metro Denver Chamber’s Lifetime Achievement Award on Wednesday, May 7th. The award will be presented by Joe Ellis, President of the Denver Broncos, at Comedy Works South during the 29th Annual Small Business Leadership Awards (SBLA). These awards recognize local businesses and community leaders for their outstanding achievements, and are hosted by the Chamber and South Metro Denver Small Business Development Center. The Lifetime Achievement Award is given to an individual who has made a major impact in the South Metro Denver business community. This accolade acknowledges a lifetime of contribution and achievement in one or more fields of endeavor; giving back to society on a regional, national or international level; being recognized within his/her community or field as a leader; and enriching the Denver community at large. Mr. Saccomano will be the inaugural recipient. Cleve Wortham, SBLA Committee Chair, Chamber Board member, and President of FirstBank - Arapahoe County commented on the award: “We are honored that Jim has graciously accepted the Lifetime Achievement Award from the South Metro Denver Chamber and the South Metro Denver Small Business Development Center, and that Joe Ellis, Broncos Team President will be making the presentation to Jim on May 7. The Denver Broncos have

made such a significant contribution, not only to the South Metro Denver business community, but to Metro Denver, the state of Colorado, and the entire Rocky Mountain region. Jim has been an integral part of this over the last five decades and we congratulate Jim on this award.” Saccomano is the longest-tenured pro sports administrator in Colorado history, having worked with the Denver Broncos for 36 years. During his tenure in 1990, the Denver Broncos moved their training facilities to the Dove Valley Business Park in Arapahoe County. This event made the organization an important part of the South Metro Denver community. The voice and memory of the franchise for many years, Saccomano has witnessed 876 Broncos games in person, his experience spanning nearly a half century. The first game was Denver’s 20-16 win against the New York Jets (which he saw as a fan) on Nov. 15, 1964. The most recent was Denver’s Super Bowl XLVIII game against the Seattle Seahawks (witnessed as an employee) on Feb. 2, 2014. Saccomano worked 27 Super Bowls—21 with the NFL’s public relations staff and six with the team, including back-to-back World Championships (1997-98). He has chaired the NFL’s media relations and international committees and has served on the league’s postseason, radio-television and special projects committees. He is currently serving as a consultant to the organization. He has received numerous awards throughout his career including the inaugural Pete Rozelle Award (1990), given annually to outstanding NFL public relations staff, and the Charlie Callahan Award for Public Relations. In 2010 he was recognized with a lifetime achievement award from the Order Sons of Italy in America Colorado Foundation. Saccomano graduated with honors from Metropolitan State University of Denver in 1970 and earned his master’s degree in journalism from University of Colorado Boulder in 1977. He was recently awarded an Honorary “C” from CU during halftime at a Buffalo’s football game on November 23, 2014 for his many contributions to his alma mater. During the 2013 season, the press box at Sports Authority Field at Mile High was officially named the Jim Saccomano Press Box. The author of four books about the Broncos, Saccomano worked three years with the Denver Bears, Denver’s minor league baseball team, prior to joining the Denver Broncos organization.

In addition to the Lifetime Achievement Award, three SBLA winners (Small Business of the Year, Emerging Business of the Year and Brian Vogt Community Leader of the Year) will be announced at the 29th Annual South Metro Denver Small Business Leadership Awards Event on Wednesday, May 7, 2014, from 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm at Comedy Works South in Greenwood Village. This event is open to the public. Pricing: $60/person or $100/couple for Chamber Investors; $75/person or $125/couple for nonInvestors. For more questions or to purchase tickets contact: Taren Shuck-Boehler 303-7950142 x235 or tshuck@bestchamber.com.

Kopp’s 34 percent of the delegate vote tally edged Gessler’s, who also made the primary ballot by garnering 33 percent. Gessler’s speech included plenty of red meat for the conservative crowd. He touted his pro-life stance and conservative economic principles. He also called on Republicans to stand up to Democrats and push back against the rival party’s agenda.

Candidates can either seek a ballot spot through the delegate process or by submitting enough signatures to gain ballot entry. Former Congressman Bob Beauprez — who lost a governor’s race to Bill Ritter in 2006 — is also attempting to petition on. Those who sought ballot placement through the assembly needed at least 30 percent of the delegate vote. That didn’t happen for three other gubernatorial candidates, including state Sen. Mike Brophy of Wray, who received 19 percent.

Attendees enjoyed dinner paired with a selection of beers from Breckenridge Brewery, slated to open in Littleton in spring of 2015, as musical ensembles from each high school performed. The Arapahoe Singers earned a standing ovation for their rendition of “The Greatest Love of All” in memory of the December murder/suicide at that school, saying the song represents their Warrior spirit. “We had a tragedy this year at Arapahoe High School, but what we did and what came out of that humbled me so much,” said Murphy. “We are not being defined by what invented our future.”

no primary opposition. Gardner — who is regarded as a rising star in GOP politics — is seen among Republicans both here and at the national level as the party’s best shot at picking up a U.S. Senate seat. Gardner has been highly critical of the Affordable Care Act and in his speech called it the “biggest and worst government boondoggle in American history,” while attempting to tie Udall to the president and his law. “The president has made our biggest problems worse and our greatest assets weaker,” said Gardner, who will give up his post as the representative for the 4th Congressional District. “And Mark Udall was just along for the ride.” Those failing to make the primary ballot included state Sen. Randy Baumgardner of Hot Sulphur Springs, who garnered just 23.8 percent of delegate support.

An open Attorney General seat will feature a GOP primary battle between Deputy Attorney General Cynthia Coffman and state Rep. Mark Waller, of Colorado Springs. Coffman earned the ballot’s top line after earning 69.3 percent of the delegate vote. Waller eked out a ballot spot, with 30.7 percent of the vote. The winner of the GOP primary will take on the Democratic AG candidate, Attorney Don Quick. As for the Secretary of State’s race, El Paso County Clerk Wayne Williams did not face opposition for the nomination and is expected to square off against Democrat Joe Neguse this fall. The Democrats held their own assembly in Denver April 11. However, there were no questions going into the assembly who their candidates would be. Hickenlooper, Udall, Quick and Neguse all were officially nominated at the assembly.

SALOME’S STARS FOR THE WEEK OF ApRil 14, 2014

ARIES (Mar 21 to Apr 19) professional relationships grow stronger. But you might still need to ease some problems with someone in your personal life. One way could be to try to be less rigid in your views. TAURUS (Apr 20 to May 20) You might be too close to that perplexing personal situation to even attempt to make a rational decision about it right now. Stepping back could help you gain a wider perspective. GEMINI (May 21 to Jun 20) Being asked to choose between the positions of two friends is an unfair imposition on you. it’s best to reject the “demands” and insist they try harder to work things out on their own.

GALLERY OF GAMES

CANCER (Jun 21 to Jul 22) A change of mind about a workplace decision might be called for once you hear more arguments, pro and con. A personal event suddenly takes an unexpected (but pleasant!) turn. LEO (Jul 23 to Aug 22) Romance once again looms large for single leos and leonas, with Cupid favoring Taurus and libra to inspire those warm and fuzzy leonine feelings. Expect another workplace change. VIRGO (Aug 23 to Sept 22) A surprise gift -- and, happily, with no strings attached -- could come just when you need it to avoid a delay in getting your project done. Expect education to dominate the week. LIBRA (Sept 23 to Oct 22) Someone close to you might ask for your support as she or he faces a demanding personal challenge. Offer it, by all means. But be careful you don’t neglect your own needs at this time. SCORPIO (Oct 23 to Nov 21) An unexpected development could put your relationship with a partner or spouse to an emotionally demanding test. But your determination to get to the truth should save the day. SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 to Dec 21) A recent agreement appears to be coming apart over the surfacing of unexpected complications. You might need to have expert advice on how to resolve the situation. CAPRICORN (Dec 22 to Jan 19) Your keen business sense helps you get to the truth about a suspicious business deal. Expect to have many colleagues rally to support your efforts in this important matter. AQUARIUS (Jan 20 to Feb 18) Someone who once moved in and out of your life through the years might now want to come back in on a more permanent basis. Give yourself a lot of time to weigh your decision. PISCES (Feb 19 to Mar 20) Showing frustration over a delayed workplace decision might get someone’s attention, but not necessarily make him or her move any sooner. Best advice would be to be patient and wait it out. BORN THIS WEEK: You are drawn to excitement and enjoy fast-tempo music, with the more brass, the better.. © 2014 King Features Synd., inc.
