t’s a dirty job, but somebody’s got to do it. And according to Tyler Jones of Centennial, that somebody is him. With his long dark locks and well-tanned hide, Jones looks more like some sort of magazine cover than a demolition derby driver, but the driver of “Pig Pen Racer,” a cannibalized Ford F-250 club cab pickup truck, says the idea of driving around in circles smashing into other vehicles is appealing. “Where else can I drive like this and not get a ticket,” he said.

“Or worse yet, sued?” Jones was among several derby racers at the Fifth Annual Demolition Derby Race on July 28 at the Arapahoe County Fair. Open to drivers 16 and older with a valid driver’s license, the all-amateur event pits drivers against each other in a muddy ring, each vying to disable the other by brute force. Drivers smash into each other, and the last operational vehicle either advances to the next round or is declared the winner. Demolition continues on Page 11

Rain-soaked reggae helps fight cancer Marley band members play for charity organization By Deborah Grigsby

dgrigsby@ourcoloradonews.com Some people feel the rain. Others just get wet. At least that’s the way Jamaican singer and songwriter Bob Marley most likely would have felt when a thunderstorm blew through Centennial Center Park July 27, drenching music lovers at the Second An-

nual Reggae in the Park concert. Although wind and rain thinned the crowd, Marley’s band, The Original Wailers, played on to benefit Cancer Care Initiative, a charity organization dedicated to bringing the best mix of traditional and alternative cancer-fighting therapies to those in need. “The City of Centennial is honored Cancer Care Initiative selected Centennial Center Park as the location for their event,” said Mayor Cathy Noon. “Despite the rain, I think everyone who attended had a good time.”

With a selection of classic Marley tunes and a few from their Grammy-nominated album, “Miracle,” The Original Wailers kept the crowd swaying until the very last note. Lead guitarist and original band member Al Anderson kept the familiar licks coming. “I didn’t really care so much about the rain,” said Wailers fan Jacob Mills of Denver. “My friends and I are here mainly to dig the spirit of the man, Bob, and for the spirit of what this event supports.” Reggae continues on Page 11

Supervisors with Littleton Fire Rescue, West Metro Fire Rescue and South Metro Fire Rescue are being trained to talk the same talk. “We run with each other a lot, so we want to communicate identically,” SMFR Capt. Ken Walker explained during a training session July 25. They’re using the Blue Card Command Certification Program, designed to bring departments into compliance with national standards required to be eligible for Homeland Security funds. Centennial is served by both Littleton Fire Rescue and South Metro, depending on the area of the city. “Each department wants to get better at running a call themselves and, in turn, as a group,” said Walker. “This way, we can kill two birds with one stone.” A major focus of Blue Card is the actual words the firefighters are using on scene, so everyone understands each other and radio chatter is minimized. Walker said the goal is to be clear, concise and brisk with their orders. “Radio time is very precious, and people can get killed in the first five minutes,” he said. The supervisors sit in classes, then practice what they learned by running virtual drills on computers, communicating via real radios. On July 25, the scene was a burning strip mall. They worked on eliminating extraneous words like “at this time” or “please,” and whether to call a particular truck a “ladder” or a “tower.” “This training and certification program produces incident commanders that make better decisions that will potentially eliminate the lethal and/or costly mistakes that cause injury, death and unnecessary fire losses in the local response area,” according to the program’s website. There’s been some concern about how long the training takes firefighters out of service. Chief John Mullin said the 50 hours of training for all 39 supervisors will require taking one engine out of service for the duration. Past training meant down time for two engines and one ambulance, he said, calling this an improvement. Joel Heinemann, president of the Littleton Firefighters Association, thinks Blue Card will generally be a good thing. But he is concerned that until the whole department is trained, not just the supervisors, it could create confusion. “In general concept, it’s the right thing to do,” he said. “Anything to improve communication is a step in the right direction.”

Candidate says school district is her passion Warren-Gully spearheaded 2010 mill-levy campaign By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@ourcoloradonews.com Carrie Warren-Gully lost to Nancy Doty in last year’s Arapahoe County commissioner race, but now she has an opportunity she thinks is a perfect fit. “This has just been my passion and my work for the last 13 years,” she said. That’s how long she’s been volunteering for Littleton Public Schools, and now she’s running for a seat on the school board. Warren-Gully says what makes her unique as a candidate is the extent to which she’s been actively observing what goes on at the state level, and how that’s helped her understand how legislation there affects the district. “It makes you realize not all schools are the same,” she said.

“To get involved at the statewide level, you see very direct impacts on the classroom. But there are kids outside of Littleton in this state that need an education too. We need to support education statewide, district-wide and right down to the neighborhood school.” A Centennial resident, her three boys all went to Sandburg Elementary School, Newton Middle School and Arapahoe High School. With her oldest off to Warren-Gully college next year, she’s now had the LPS experience from beginning to end and been active at the school and district levels throughout. Warren-Gully said that so far, she’s most proud of chairing the committee that got the 2010 mill levy passed despite the recession. “It was a perfect example of how this community comes together,” she said. “It shows you the community is proud of your

school district and understands the importance of the school district. It says a lot about community and values. And it took so many people from every school, and volunteers from throughout the district. It wasn’t just one person leading the charge. It was enough people spending the time and energy to make this happen.” The current board is set to decide this month whether to place a bond issue on the November ballot, and Warren-Gully hopes they do. Continuing to defer facility maintenance will only lead to bigger and more expensive problems down the road, she said. “We have two huge investments that we’re responsible for,” she said. “Our staff and our buildings are what support the students.” She said her hope is to follow in the footsteps of the current board members. “It’s really all about how do we continue down the same path,” she said. “There’s no consternation, no dissatisfaction. … Those of us who have been in-

volved long enough saw the opportunity to continue the work that’s already been done.” She agrees with her fellow candidate Kelly Perez that she’d hate to see someone’s personal agenda disrupt the spirit of teamwork the current board will bequeath to the next. She believes a broad focus better serves the district rather than a narrow agenda. “Every year, 13,000 kids show up at our doors, and not one of them is the same as another,” she said. Three people besides Warren-Gully and Perez have officially declared bids for seats on the Littleton Public Schools Board of Education: Dallas Jones, Robert Reichert and Jack Reutzel. LPS canceled its last two elections when nobody stepped up to run against the incumbents. This time, Bob Colwell, Renee Howell and Sue Chandler are all finishing their second four-year terms and cannot run again due to term limits.

Restaurateur Romano dies at 83 Co-founder of landmark eatery gave back to city By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@ourcoloradonews.com Neil Romano, 83, passed away on July 28. The co-founder of Romano’s Italian Restaurant on Windermere Street in Littleton had battled stage 4 lung cancer since March. “He battled cancer, as he did everything, with strength and compassion,” reads a statement by his family. “He will be missed by family, friends, employees and customers that he touched with his humor and love. And he is back with our mother, Ellie Romano, at what we know was a joyful reunion. Funeral arrangements will be announced.” Ellie Romano died in May 2012. Married on Nov. 30, 1959, the couple started Romano’s in December 1967. The Littleton restaurant has become a local favorite and a city landmark. “Little did they know what they were cre-

ating back in 1967,” son John Romano said after his mother died. The business boomed from three tables in 700 square feet to 36 tables in 5,000 square feet, and the family opened a location in Highlands Ranch seven years ago. “It was the people of Littleton that made them successful, so they gave back every chance they could,” said John Romano. Awards adorning the restaurant’s wall testify to their service, from Western Welcome Week naming them Grand Marshal in 2007, to being recognized for filling empty bowls for Love Inc., to earning a Business Integrity Award from Littleton Rotary, to being inducted into the Foodservice Hall of Fame in 2006. The couple had three children — Susan Calhoun (Mike), John (Rachelle) and Nicholas (Charlsy) — who gave them eight granddaughters (Audrey Bartlett, Lindsey Bartlett, Molly Bartlett, Carly Calhoun, Jenna Romano, Christina Romano, Traysa Romano and Jordan Romano).

The 2013 Arapahoe County Fair, one of the traditional indicators the summer is winding down, wrapped up its five-day run at the county fairgrounds in Aurora. The annual community event celebrates the county’s deep roots in agriculture and livestock, as well as some of the tastiest treats from local kitchens. Along with traditional carnival rides and food, visitors enjoyed pig races, tractor pulls, a demolition derby and live music from several local bands.

A pair of curious goats in search of snacks and a scratch behind the ear greet fairgoers at the 2013 Arapahoe County Fair, which wrapped up its five-day run on July 28.

Kelly Byrd of Englewood shows off her tractor-pull skills behind the wheel of her antique Case DC-4. The vintage tractor competition, held on July 27 at the Arapahoe County Fairgrounds, attracted a variety of iron monsters, some dating back to the early 1930s.

All kinds of crazy midway rides could be found at this year’s Arapahoe County Fair. Visitors of all ages — and nerve levels — could certainly find something to their liking. Rides ranged from the traditional to the terrifying.

Youths shine despite challenges Housing agency’s scholarship winners have bright futures By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@ourcoloradonews.com “I think that dreams are possible,” says Sophie Ramirez, who is on her way to proving just that. Ramirez says she struggled to get where she is today — a recent graduate of Heritage High School with a perfect grade-point average on her way to Colorado College and a career in veterinary medicine, thanks in part to South Metro Housing Options. She and four other bright young women were honored during a ceremony at SMHO on July 24, recognizing them for winning the agency’s annual scholarship. “This is one of the highlights of the year,” said Dan Burnham, SMHO executive director. “We had a lot more kids this year, so the competition was pretty stiff. It’s really awesome to see these young people going forward.” Low-income students throughout the area the agency serves are invited to submit an essay about their career plans; it’s not necessary to be an SMHO client. Students at vocational and technical schools are welcome to apply, as are parents in SMHO housing who are learning new job skills or obtaining college degrees. They’re required

20 years on the board. “It’s great to see what, we think, makes a difference in people’s lives,” he said. “Especially some of the students we’ve been able to help and see them from start to finish.” This is the second time the board has been able to help Tam Dang, who just completed her freshman year at the University of Colorado-Denver with 4.0 GPA. She’s

pursuing a bachelor’s degree in pre-med, inspired by the care that her mom, Yen Pham, received during a bout with cancer. “I’m very proud of her,” said Pham, as her daughter interpreted. “I hope she will be persistent in pursuing her major.” Dang advised the younger four students to do the same. “It would really help to have a clear goal in mind in college and follow that path,” she said. That won’t likely be a problem. Kate Armon, for example, graduated from Heritage with a 3.7 GPA and is on her way to Arapahoe Community College to work toward becoming a teacher. “It’s important to learn and understand everything you can, and to help others do the same thing,” she said. Her teachers say HHS graduate Allison Kuhlman likes to be challenged, which will be a big asset on her path to becoming a civil engineer. “I’m really excited to go to (Colorado State University) and grateful to continue my education,” she said. Anna Abalos’s mom has no doubt her daughter will be successful. “She’s so accomplished and so structured,” she said. “I know she’ll do very well, because she’s got that work ethic. I’m very proud.” So far, so good for Abalos; she graduated from Littleton High School with a 3.8 GPA. “It’s most important, I think, to work hard and never give up on yourself,” she said.

8-Opinion

opinions / yours and ours

Upbeat signs for FasTracks, but miles to go Take the good with the bad, and, in the end, say it’s all good. This pragmatic approach to good mental health often fits the public’s journey in large public works projects as well. A recent survey prepared for RTD — conducted by BCC Research & Consulting — shows a solidly upbeat view to our Regional Transportation District FasTracks system. Passed by voters in 2004, the 0.4 percent sales tax funded project was originally priced at $4.7 billion. As it happens, the economy tanked in 2008, and the projected budget climbed to more than $6 billion and now sits at $7.4 billion according to RTD’s estimate last year. It is not surprising that this type of expansive project would take its hits — it’s a big deal to build out the Denver metro’s major corridors with commuter rail systems and additional bus rapid transit. Who can forget the Big Dig? And al-

our view though Mount Rushmore and the Statue of Liberty were not transportation projects, those ambitious ventures ran on fumes from time to time — short on funds and support — before they were completed and the following generations of benefactors pronounced it’s all good. But now, in some ways we are getting close to feeling darn good about FasTracks. The recent BCC survey with 800 respondents indicated positive perspectives. The number for the “somewhat positive to very positive” view of FasTracks has been pulling out of a skid to hit 81 percent this year.

The V-shape amounts to 84 percent in 2007; 80 percent, 2009; 71 percent, 2010; 78 percent, 2011, before rising to better than four out of five respondents. Those who say FasTracks was a good decision tallied higher than 80 percent as well. In passing, those who say it was a bad decision have pegged at a solid 10 percent to 23 percent in the five survey years, and we recognize this group will be around and can drum up some concerning cost per ride and bus vs. rail numbers. But for another reason, we have a ways to go to reach the true tipping point. Many areas of the metro with completed corridor lines have fared well — most recently the W Rail Line from Golden through Lakewood to Denver was completed ahead of schedule in April. But there is another story up north where the entire North Metro Rail Line, originally projected for completion in late

2015, has been pushed back to sometime after 2035 according to the latest RTD projection although request for proposals could change the date. Interestingly the survey says Adams County respondents — where the North Metro Rail Line rail will run — tallied 78 percent as “somewhat favorable-very favorable.” The number is better than Boulder County at 68 percent, but not far behind the other five counties included (Weld, Arapahoe, Douglas, Denver and Jefferson), which ranged 79 to 86 percent. As for Adams County — pretty amazing for an area that will tread in the have-nots category for a few more decades. While other cities and countries admire FasTracks, we need to be mindful that all promises should be kept south to north before we can confidently say all good. We’re a ways away.

Figure out what it is you want

Life puts dents in preconceptions I always keep a few apologies handy. Learning how and when to apologize is very important. I’ve said something or I’ve done something I’ve regretted more times than I want to count. But I did just that one night. I made a list of my major lapses, and there have been some humdingers. Usually I had a partner, an accomplice, but I never blamed him. He has a Russian name, Smirnoff. I was told never to ruin a good apology with a bad excuse. I try to follow that advice, but sometimes I have to apologize for my apology. Emails are not always the best way to say you’re sorry. Sometimes it’s an email that gets me in trouble in the first place. I can be too abrupt, too facetious, too unkind. And the instant that I click “send” I want a redaction that I can’t have. Some of us don’t apologize. Tough guys don’t apologize because it’s a sign of weakness. Did you hear the words “I’m sorry” or “I regret” during the James “Whitey” Bulger trial? I have apologized over and over, made amends or attempted to, and it makes me feel a little better. But I hate the fact that I can be a jerk. I don’t need to express my opinion whenever I have one. But I do. Having an opinion column puts me on guard about perceived offenses. There might be something to write about. I am sandwiched by renters, and the houses have been rented countless times since I’ve lived in mine. My property is groomed. The yards next door haven’t been groomed since Missy Franklin was born, and the homeowners association knows my voice. (Note: The current renters are exceptions.) Everyone doesn’t have the time or money to groom a yard, or the health or the energy. I just started driving with Meals For Wheels. I’m doing it for a number of reasons. I need to get out of the house, because isolating is not healthy for someone like me. And I need to be reminded about what’s important. I was offered Route 7, which takes me around parts of Englewood I have never seen before. Many of the homes look tired,

and the homeowners look tired too — but they are doing the best they can. Yards and porches are littered. Things are left where they were last used, and that may have been weeks, months, or years. Doors open when I knock with a meal, and a smiling face looks at me. There is always a smiling face, and the old grouch smiles right back. I know I might be the only human being they talk with on Fridays. Many of them have devoted dogs. Bless our dogs, right? I don’t know any of them, but I can see biographical details everywhere, like military decals and affectionately arranged flower beds. Most of their yards need makeovers. I would have been on the phone if I lived next to them. But not now. When I hand them a meal I see a graying life at the train station, with a ticket for the next destination. I might be looking at a World War II veteran or a greatgrandmother no one cares about anymore except relatives, maybe. All but a few live alone. I live alone. It’s easy for me to see myself in them, someday. One woman has animal shelter eyes. I can’t get them out of my mind. I told her to “Behave this weekend, and I will see you next Friday.” She broke into a smile, and so did I. The yards next door to me look fine. I’m sorry I felt otherwise. I plan to write about Route 7 again. I’ve said this before: I’m still learning. Craig Marshall Smith is an artist, educator and Highlands Ranch resident.

Do you remember the pop song by the Spice Girls, “Tell me what you want, what you really really want, I’ll tell you what I want, what I really really want”? And then the lyrics are repeated several times. Have you ever been asked, “What is it that you really want?” Or maybe you have even asked yourself, “What is it that I want the most in life?” Does your answer change based on either situation? I often find that we tend to be more guarded when answering the question about what we want when asked by another person, and much more honest and deep when we look ourselves in the mirror and answer ourselves when no one else is around. Do we want material things? Do we want money? Do we want love? What is the thing we want most in this life? After 40 years of research, The Zig Ziglar Organization netted the list down to eight things that people really really want: To be happy, to be healthy, to be reasonably prosperous (and some people would like to be unreasonably prosperous), to have security, true friends, peace, solid family relationships and hope. Think about it, would you trade your happiness, health, prosperity, security, friendship, peace, family relationships and hope for a second or third home, a new car, jewelry, a good time, or even a great time? And does there absolutely have to be one or the other? I am a big proponent of “and” not “or,” and believe if we strive for the things we want without compromising our character or integrity we can have all of the material things we desire as well as all of the more important things that money will not buy. One of the things that I really really want in life is peace. And this is one of the

reasons I really love living here in Colorado. There is such a fantastic sense of peace when hiking in the mountains, walking in our open spaces, skiing on through the trees or in a secluded or quiet area on the hill. Sure, skiing requires equipment, proper clothing and a ski pass, but hiking and walking bring me peace with absolutely no investment from me other than my time. I set goals and pursue dreams. And when I look at the list of eight things that we all want, at some level I recognize that I am doing OK in several areas but still need to develop and grow in others. I would encourage you to write the list of these eight topic, Happy, Healthy, Reasonably Prosperous, Secure, Friendship, Peace, Family Relationships and Hope. Next to each one just simply put a check mark next to the ones you feel you are doing well in and an asterisk next to the ones you want to see yourself develop. How are you doing in these eight categories? I would love to hear all about it at gotonorton@gmail.com and together let’s make this a better than good week.

Vue at RidgeGate complex celebrates grand opening By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com

Lone Tree’s newest housing option, the Vue at RidgeGate apartment complex, shatters the stereotypical image of apartment living, said Mayor Jim Gunning. “They call it an apartment complex, but I really don’t nd think of it that way at all,” said the mayor, who cut the ribon), bon for the building’s grand opening July 25. “This is an extremely upscale apartment complex and zing an upscale demographic. It’s more like a resort.” “An upscale hotel is how it struck me,” said Elton Winots ters, who attended the grand opening. “This place is really mire befitting of Lone Tree.” Vue tenants likely will have enough disposable income all to frequent the Lone Tree Arts Center, Park Meadows mall h and other Lone Tree businesses, Gunning believes. “Those are really solid economic housing units for Lone Tree,” he said. They’re also popular, with 45 percent of the nearly 300 units already occupied or reserved. The complex welcomed its first residents in June. “We are leasing faster than company expectations,” manager David Walton said. “We should be full in under a year. We budgeted for July to be 17 percent occupied and we’re already at 26 percent.” The demographic to date is wide-ranging. “You name it, we got it,” Walton said. “I think that’s partly due to our variety of floor plans. This is the first time as a company we’ve put in a studio. And that will attract a different demographic we haven’t been able to attract before Kat Wilson, left, Lone Tree Chamber of Commerce office manager, talks to chamber director Linda Harmon in one of the Vue apartment complex’s community — people that want to live in a nice place but maybe can’t areas.

The company “loves this RidgeGate appliances, mosaic-style kitchen backsplash and USB ports. everything you need right at your fingertips.” neighborhood.

Street construction season underway One Lone Tree project done; another will continue into fall By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com A stretch of Parkway Drive north of C-470, closed since mid-May, has reopened, but construction on nearby Park Meadows Drive will continue into the fall. The work on Park Meadows Drive between Quebec Street and Acres Green Drive includes replacing concrete and installing a landscaped median. “In order to keep all the businesses open, we have to do it a little bit at a time,” said Lone Tree Public Works Director John Cotten. “As a result, it’s probably going to be the end of September or into October before it completes.” Concrete on that section of Park Meadows Drive was failing, Cotten said. “We have been patching it and replacing panels for several years, and finally decided this year we would tear out the whole road and rebuild it,” he said. Construction crews wrapped up a redesign of Parkway Drive from County Line Road to Acres Green Drive. A water line break pushed that project ahead of schedule. The May 19 rupture of a 12-inch water line behind the Sports Authority building flooded Parkway Drive and its intersection with Acres Green Drive. By the time crews

stemmed the flow, the road was badly damaged. The City of Lone Tree and Southgate Water District reached an agreement to go ahead with a redesign that included narrowing the street and installing a median instead of merely repairing the damage. “By narrowing it, we actually saved Southgate about $100,000 in repair costs,” Cotten said. The city also hopes the redesign drops the number of accidents at the Parkway and Acres Green drives intersection. “Parkway and Acres Green has been one of our highest-accident intersections in the entire city,” Cotten said. “As we looked at the intersection more and more, we came to realize there’s just a lot going on there because it was four lanes intersecting with four lanes.” Because the projects are ending in late summer, landscaping in both the Parkway and Park Meadows drives medians won’t be planted until spring. The new medians will not only beautify the streets, Cotten said, but continue a pattern already established elsewhere in the city. “It’s sort of a signature element for the city,” he said. “There are lot of people who don’t even know (Parkway and Park Meadows drives) is part of the city. We felt it would make it more feel like a part of Lone Tree.” The Park Meadows Metro District is partnering with the city on the Park Meadows Drive reconstruction and will complete the median landscaping on both streets in 2014.

Thirty-eight people became new Americans during a ceremony at the Littleton Center July 25. Photo by Jennifer Smith that everyone in the room, not just the honorees, originated from elsewhere. “They’ve all added their distinct cultures to the montage that is the United States,” he said. The 38 honored that night represented 21 different countries. There were 18 from Mexico, two from Cameroon and one each from countries as diverse as the Netherlands, Poland, Bosnia and Ethiopia. Mayor Debbie Brinkman encouraged

them all to actively engage in their new country. “As you embrace your rights and responsibilities of being American, I hope you will take advantage of all our country both offers and expects,” she said. To that end, representatives from Mi Familia Vota were on hand to register the new citizens to vote before they even left the building, and business was brisk. Romaine Pacheo, the director of Gov. John Hickenlooper’s office of boards and

Native Englishman Jack Durston welcomed fresh Prince George Alexander Louis to the world on July 22, then promptly renounced his allegiance to him three days later. “I hereby declare, on oath, that I absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state or sovereignty, of whom or which I have heretofore been a subject or citizen,” he said along with 37 other newly minted Americans July 25 during their naturalization ceremony at the Littleton Center. Durston came to America in 1985, sponsored by his stepmother. Times had been rough in his touristy, seaside hometown of Folkestone, and jobs were scarce. “I was so young, and there was so much turmoil,” he said. He became a drive-train mechanic in California, where he met his wife, Holly. She and her native land of Littleton convinced Durston he was here to stay. The city has gained national attention for the Littleton Immigrant Resource Center, housed at Bemis Library and supported by the Littleton Immigration Integration Initiative. U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet has touted its work with the “Gang of Eight” on immigration policy, and in April it won a $145,000 grant from the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services — which just lured away Alejandra Harguth, LIRC’s longtime director. “Weve taken really a national lead in welcoming people from around the world to our community,” said Susan Thornton, an LI3 founder. Mayor Pro Tem Bruce Stahlman noted

Ta

have seen the results of that over the last several election cycles. We wanted to make sure that was not going to be the case when it comes to Hillary Clinton. We wanted to start early.” The Highlands Ranch Republican said that Clinton is making all the moves typical of a national candidate, and that PACs are sprouting up in support of a Clinton campaign already. The only other candidates that he and fellow Republicans working on the Stop Harvey Hillary PAC are concerned with, Harvey said, are those she endorses. “Any candidate that she endorses, we will be there to tell the voters who that person is and counteract anything that Hillary Clinton and her campaign do across this

country,” he said. “Wherever she is, we will be. “We are going to continue to remind the citizens of the United States who Hillary Clinton is and what her background is; her whole history of misleading the American public, whether it was her personal or public behavior, her efforts with the Rose Law Firm, whether it was Whitewater or whether it was Benghazi.” The organization, “Stop Hillary PAC,” officially filed with the Federal Election Commission in May, but has kept things quiet until now. According to Harvey, the PAC had a very good week of fundraising in its first week of going public with appearances on Fox News, CNN and a story in the Washington Times. The group launched its first anti-Clinton YouTube video July 24 on its website, www. stophillarypac.org, reaching more than

100,000 people by email, Harvey said. The video had topped 31,000 views by Colorado Community Media’s July 26 deadline. Commercials and radio spots are not expected for a while from the group, as Harvey said they plan to keep their efforts focused on social media. When asked about whom he saw running against Clinton in 2016 if she indeed is the nominee for the Democratic Party, he said he was focused solely on stopping Clinton. “I am confident that the Republican Party will put up a great nominee in 2016 and will be able to be very competitive against Hillary Clinton, because of the efforts of organizations like the Stop Hillary PAC,” he said. Calls for comment to Mike Jones, Douglas County Democratic Party Chairman, as well as Democratic U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet were not returned prior to deadline.

Taste of Lone Tree bigger and better By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com The Taste of Lone Tree returns for its sixth year Aug. 10 and 11, bigger, better and more diverse than ever. This year’s additions include live music and a VIP ticket that offers an upgraded, more unique experience to match its higher cost. All events are at Lincoln Commons, off Lincoln Avenue and Commons Street east of the Super Target. The $45 VIP Experience includes access to a tent with fine restaurant variety food, designated parking and a few other perks. “The tent will be positioned in a place so you can sit and watch the bands,” said Linda Harmon, director of the Lone Tree Chamber of Commerce. “The VIP Experience people will be able to go throughout the festival and get unlimited tastings, but they will be the only ones allowed in the VIP tent.” In an effort to avoid the unanticipated

Jones, who’s been racing for about eight years, said he purchased the Pig Pen Racer for $800. “I actually found it on Craigslist,” he said. “And since then, I’ve put another $2,000 into it.” But according to the doting father, the best upgrade made so far is the custom paint job created by his daughter, featuring

high demand that left some vendors without enough food and drink in 2012, the $15 general admission ticket includes five food tastings and three drink samples. Another tent will offer some shade and seats for children and adults, and kids’ activities sponsored by local businesses. “You’ll be able to get your kids out of the sun and they’ll be able to chill and have some fun,” Harmon said. The 2013 event builds on the success of 2012, which drew nearly double the number of people organizers had anticipated. “We’ll have all the different wines, beer and food (of 2012), and it’s still going to be family fun,” Harmon said. “The big change probably is the live music.” A small arts festival featuring local jewelers and artists also will be part of this year’s Taste. The event is from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Aug. 10 and noon to 5 p.m. Aug. 11.

Although Jones said serious injuries in the sport are rare, he has seen some guys who were “pretty banged up.” “I can’t say enough about protective gear,” said Jones, who’s never been injured. “Aside from additional padding within the cab of the truck, I also wear shin guards like hockey players, a helmet and a $600 custom neck brace, just in case.” He cautioned new drivers to do their homework, and start out small. “And always wear protective gear,” he said. “Always.”

Marley, himself, endured a fight against cancer. In July of 1977, the reggae icon was diagnosed with a malignant melanoma found beneath one of his toenails. He refused to have it amputated and sought controversial alternative treatments centered on the avoidance of certain foods

and substances. He died of cancer four years later. “The concert is a great way for the general public to attend an event that is upbeat and provides music to support a cause,” said Progressive Health Center Chief Executive Officer Sue Goodin. “We want the community to have fun, enjoy themselves and learn more about our charity and how it supports the community. Reggae in the Park is a collaborative effort between Anderson and two-time cancer survivor and former Denver Nuggets head coach George Karl.

igh-powered sport rockets packed with student payloads soared thousands of feet above the plains of Pueblo as part of a student rocket launch hosted by United Launch Alliance and Ball Aerospace & Technologies Corp. The July 27 event marked the culmination of an educational experience designed to simulate a real-life launch campaign, encouraging students to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). The launch featured three high-power sport rockets built by interns at ULA, including “Future” — the largest rocket to launch in Colorado. Ball interns created the five largest payloads, and K-12 students from Colorado and Alabama created 12 additional payloads. Payloads are onboard instruments and experiments that are deployed after launch. Working on their own time, the students designed, built and tested their respective rockets and payloads under the supervision and guidance of mentors from both companies. Approximately 60 interns and 30 mentors from ULA as well as 49 interns and 25 mentors from Ball participated this year. Among the lineup of rockets was the 25-foot-tall “Future,” which carried 14

An old launch panel dating back to the Cold War was repurposed by students participating in United Launch Alliance’s summer internship program. Created for use with ICBMs in the 1960s, the clunky box now launches student-built rockets carrying educational payloads.

Looking down the fuselage of “Future” can be dizzying. The 25-foot rocket was built by United Launch Alliance interns, including students from Centennial’s Eaglecrest High School. Future and two other student rockets were sent skyward along with payloads including cameras, altimeters, weather balloons and biodegradable glitter at a July 27 launch.

payloads to an altitude of approximately 9,000 feet above the ground. The “Stars ‘N’ Stripes” is a 17-foot rocket and carried two payloads, and the “Atlas IV,” at 10 feet tall, deployed a single payload. Ball interns designed, built and tested

the five largest payloads, including a fully equipped life support system carrying a crew of grasshoppers to a new home in Pueblo; a bio-friendly glitter bomb; a selfguided quad-copter; a wacky, wavy inflatable man; and a solar balloon with a surprise that should wow the audience, among many other sensors and cameras. Twelve K-12 student teams from five

schools in Colorado and Alabama also built payloads. Many incorporated parachutes, cameras and instruments including GPS, accelerometers and Geiger counters, and the student designers will use them to learn more about the environment, the atmosphere, descent velocities and even the best way to recharge AA batteries.

REAL ESTATE AGENT SPOTLIGHT OF THE WEEK What is your specialty and what does that mean for changed a great deal compared to what it was about a year Ben Eyasu ago. the people you work with? Managing Broker RE Professionals 10200 E. Girard Ave #B230 Denver, CO 80231 720-365-7981 Ben.eyasu@gmail.com www.reproscolorado.com Where were you born? I was born in Ethiopia and grew up in San Francisco. How long have you lived in the area? I moved to Colorado in 2002 and have been here since. What do you like most about it? I like Colorado for its beautiful mountains, the fourseason weather, and the variety of outdoor activities it offers. Colorado also has great people, an easy/laid back lifestyle, and a great place to raise a family.

I specialize in Residential Real Estate with first time homebuyers and investors. I invest a great deal of time researching the market in the area and keeping myself informed with the ever-changing market. I point my clients to the appropriate resources when they are not clear on where to get the right information pertaining to the home buying process. I facilitate that service by collaborating with other credible financial agency representatives, government program experts, home inspection agents etc., with the intent of simplifying what can be an overwhelming task to my clients. My clients appreciate my honesty and integrity, and most importantly, feel at ease to come to me with any questions. What is the most challenging part of what you do? I currently find most challenging the changes happening in the real estate market in Colorado. The real estate market has

What do you most enjoy doing when you’re not working? I love spending my free time with my 10-month-old son and family. We enjoy traveling, watching sporting events, and all the great outdoor activities that Colorado has to offer. What is one tip you have for someone looking to sell a house? My advice would be to de-clutter the house, have it smell clean and fresh, and give it an inviting appeal. What is one tip you have for someone looking to buy a house? Have patience. Looking for a home can be a tasking experience, but with the right attitude and understanding of what the market has to offer, it can also be fun. What is the most unusual thing you have encountered while working in Real Estate? Sitting at a closing, a buyer literally came with a suitcase full of cash. The buyer had to redeposit before we can close.

How long have you worked in Real Estate? I have been working in the Real Estate for eight years now.

Colorado Scottish Festival turns 50 Haggis, whiskey, Nessie, bagpipes descend on Ranch By Ryan Boldrey

rboldrey@ourcoloradonews.com Grab your kilt and get ready for some bagpipes. The 50th annual Colorado Scottish Festival is just around the corner. Slated for Aug. 10-11 in Highland Heritage Park in Highlands Ranch, this year’s festivities will feature Highlands Games, haggis tasting, drum, dance and Bonny Knees competitions, games for the kids, live music, and of course, Nessie. Expecting to draw between 10,000 and 12,000 people over the two-day celebration, festival director John Thornton said each year the Celtic party gets a “wee bit better.” “It’s pretty darn exciting,” he said. “This thing started as a family picnic with just a handful of people in a park up near Conifer, cooking some hot dogs and drinking some beer. It’s morphed into a festival that at-

tracts people from all over the world.” The festival outgrew its Conifer roots by the early 1980s, and made the move to the Colorado School of Mines’ athletic complex. It wasn’t long, Thornton said, before it outgrew the school grounds and in 1990, about the time he started running the show, the event moved to Highlands Ranch, where it’s stayed put ever since. “It’s really a family event,” Thornton said. “Unlike a lot of festivals that center around a lot of beer drinking and things like that, we try to cater to all ages. After all, the kids of today are the Scottish enthusiasts of tomorrow.” For those looking to cool off on a hot summer day with an adult beverage, no fretting is allowed, the dog-friendly festival will have adult beverages available on site. Celtic rock group Angus Mohr will also perform from 6 to 9:30 p.m. Aug. 10. Promising more events than ever before packed into two days, Thornton said the festival is a great opportunity to learn more

about one’s own Celtic heritage, regardless of whether it is Scottish, Irish or British. “People can come on down, have a taste of the ol’ Scottish soul food, haggis, and if you are an adult you can have a wee bit of whiskey to wash it down with,” he said. For more information on the festival, including a complete schedule of events, visit www.scottishgames.org or call the festival hotline at 303-238-6524. The festival is from 9 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Aug. 10 and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Aug. 11 at 9651 S. Quebec Street in Highlands Ranch. Single-day tickets, available on the site, range from $9 to $18 with multiple options available for seniors, kids, and adults who wish to spend an entire day on the grounds or just attend the Saturday concert. Children 6 and under receive free admission. Volunteers are still being sought for the festival, and Thornton said for four hours of service, volunteers get in for free for the remainder of the day. If interested in volunteering, please call Thornton at 303-5236469.

Phamaly company revisits a classic Beloved ‘Fiddler’ comes to downtown Denver By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com Since “Fiddler on the Roof” first was produced on Broadway in 1964, it has been so popular that its music and story of human strengths have become part of our cultural fabric: “Tradition,” “Sunrise, Sunset,” “To Life …” Theater companies around the world produce it and audiences come with children and grandchildren to see it over and over, reliving a piece of history for many families with Russian ancestors. Phamaly, a theater company for actors with physical, emotional and cognitive disabilities, has chosen it as the 2013 summer musical production and delivers a lovely, well-paced musical through Aug. 11 at Denver Center for the Performing Arts, with fine voices and nice staging, directed by Steve Wilson. Choreographed by Debbie Stark, with musical direction by Donna Debreceni, it speaks to spirit and strength. Russian painter Marc Chagall’s “The Fiddler” and other like images in his work are cited as inspiration in an online history of the musical, based on Sholem Aleichem’s story, “Tevye’s Daughters” or “Tevye the Milkman.” Of special note in this production are mother and son fiddlers: Sophia

iF you go “Fiddler on the Roof” plays through Aug. 11 at the Space Theatre, Denver Performing Arts Complex. Presented by Phamaly, with performances at 7:30 p.m. Fridays, Saturdays and 2 p.m. Sundays. Tickets: $30/$34, 303-893-4100, phamaly.org. or the Denver Center ticket office. Hummel, a student at San Francisco Conservatory, plays with a special bowing device because her right arm is amputated below the elbow, and 11-year-old Leslie Wilburn, concertmaster in the Denver Young Artists Orchestra, is polished and assured as he appears more frequently than is usual in “Fiddler” productions. Mark Disette is playing Tevye a second time for Phamaly, and portrays the milkman’s mixture of stubbornness and good humor skillfully. We can relate to this traditional Papa with stubborn daughters — and Rachel Van Scoy, Kenzie Kilroy and Lindsay Palmer as the marriageable daughters are charming and determined. Kathleen Traylor, an original Phamaly member, plays the conservative mother/ wife Golde and Ashley Kelashian takes over the stage when she appears as the village matchmaker Yente. The “Tevye’s Dream” sequence is especially imaginative, with Grandma Fruma in a flying wheelchair. This is an ideal play for a family outing

Gordon Ramsay, the chef who puts the terror into every restaurant owner, returns for a sixth season as he treks across the country to help struggling restaurants keep their businesses above water (and in some cases cockroaches, rats, etc). When all seems to be in desperate despair, the restaurant owners turn to Ramsay and his team for one last hope before having to shut their doors. Many of these restaurants are beyond repair, leaving Ramsay to face a nearly impossible task. Some will close their doors, others will get back on their feet, but all are calling on Chef Ramsay to wake them up from their “Kitchen Nightmares,” airing at 7 p.m. Mondays on Fox 31. You’ll have chances to view local operations, after Ramsay’s “Kitchen Nightmares” made two stops in the Denver metro area last month. The kitchen commander visited Pantaleone’s on July 26 and Old Neighborhood in Arvada July 27-30. Be afraid, be very afraid! The Old Neighborhood has been an Arvada institution since 1980, serving a diverse menu of American, Mexican, Italian, French, Asian and even Cajun-inspired foods. Owners Alexa and Randy Kowalczyk are sure to be in for a test from Ramsay when it comes to Old Neighborhood’s gigantic menu. Pantaleone’s is a pizza and pasta restaurant at 2120 S. Holly in south Denver. Mr. On The Town and I visited Panteleone’s 10 years ago or so for a story he was writing on Denver’s best pizza and we left unimpressed. Still, many have raved about the pizza and pasta place owned by Pete and Paulette Fafalios. Look for the episodes later this summer on Fox 31. Best of luck to both restaurants!

American Ninja

Am I the only weirdo who watched “American Ninja” on 9News on July 22? Why? Because they filmed the segment in Denver a few blocks from my condo, but I knew nothing about it. The host is Matt Iseman, a Denver native. Iseman even talked about how happy he was to be back in his hometown during the show. The show is entertaining in the fact that it’s fiercely competitive while these folks compete in crazy stunts that defy all odds of gravity. The show is continuing at 7 p.m. Mondays. Rich Grant, the spokesmodel for Visit Denver, told me that the crew filmed all through the night roughly five weeks ago. The show was shot in Civic Center and really highlights downtown Denver in the dark.

Littleton author wins Colorado Book Award Parker Anthology had roots in Columbine tragedy

Continued from Page 23

By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com On June 21, Carolyn Mears of Littleton was presented with the 2013 Colorado Book Award for Anthology for her 2012 book, “Reclaiming School in the Aftermath of Trauma: Advice Based on Experiences” (Palgrave Macmillan). The awards ceremonies were held in Aspen. The annual Colorado Book Awards, in a number of categories, are given by The Colorado Center for the Book, a program of the Colorado Humanities, affiliated with the Library of Congress Center for the Book in Washington, D.C. The organization, a nonprofit affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities, has an office in Greenwood Village and supports literary, cultural and historical programs throughout the state. Mears’ experiences began on April 20, 1999. Her younger son was a student at Columbine High School when the shooting tragedy happened. “Severely exposed to violence one should never have to,” she said, he ended up hiding in a closet with others. There were about three hours of “that unknowing piece — was he alive?” “That’s the beginning. There was no preparation for schools, teachers, counselors ... Thinking things will go back to how it used to be is a myth — for kids, teachers, parents, community. It was a shattering of what we thought our world was.” As an educator, Mears determined to return to school and embarked on an award-winning Ph.D. thesis project, published as “Experiences of Columbine Parents in Finding the Way to Tomorrow.” A network began that reached across the world.

Carolyn Mears of Littleton won the 2013 Colorado Book Award for her anthology “Reclaiming School in the Aftermath of Trauma: Advice Based on Experiences.” Courtesy photo “But when I speak, I speak as a Columbine mom. I trust people who have lived the experience.” She developed a research method. She had inquiries from around the world about “what did the teachers do?” It was back to the drawing board. She needed to go beyond being a Columbine mom. A federal grant was available to aid in research for Mears, who is a dissertation adviser and adjunct faculty at the University of Denver’s Morgridge College of Education and is a member of the Trauma Certification Board of the DU Graduate School of Social Work. She is called on to speak nationally and internationally about such topics as trauma response and recovery after school shootings, safe school environments, leadership in times of crisis and narrative research. “Everyone on the globe will experience or know someone who has experienced a traumatic event,” Mears said. For her 12-chapter anthology,

she connected with people at Virginia Tech over the shooting there; the Lusher Charter School in New Orleans about Hurricane Katrina experiences; the New York Law School, near the World Trade Center, about 9/11; and the Joleka Center School in Finland, where there was a school shooting in 2007. She interviewed in some cases and included writing by others. Mears asked: “Tell me briefly your story/experience. What did you find helpful?” There were more than 100 interviews and she used her material from Columbine parents. “I really wanted to be sure their voices came through — I don’t own their life experience nor their words. It’s important that people are not victimized.” “It’s a tough read,” she says of her anthology. However, “it’s a book not of sorrow, but of hope.” Readers can find a list of other 2013 Colorado book award winners by going online to coloradohumanities.org, then clicking on a link on the “News/Media” page.

Players and spectators receive drink and food tickets for a variety of beverages to enjoy as well as morsels from restaurants including Brio Tuscan Grille, Opus Restaurant & Aria Wine Bar, California Pizza Kitchen, Kona Grill, Patxi’s and a goody bag.

TAG Burger Bar is in the planning stages of a second location in northwest Denver, bordering the Highland neighborhood. The casual burger joint led by chef Troy Guard now operates in Congress Park at 12th and Madison. A second location is planned in the former Subway Tavern & Pizzeria Longo’s space at 38th and Lipan. The Larimer Associates, which owns TAG Burger Bar, acquired the family-owned restaurant in September when Longo’s closed its doors after 52 years in business. A massive remodel is planned for the 3,000-squarefoot space starting early September. Considering the age of the restaurant and lack of upgrades in recent years, Larimer Associates decided to gut it and start over with a remodel project that will

likely take six months.

Golf fun for charity

I have had the rare privilege of being asked to participate (a.k.a. play) in the Hyde Park Jewelers charity golf tournament for the 14 years that it’s been in existence. But the night preceding the tourney can be even more of a reunion between athletes and journalists who gathered on July 21 at Elway’s Cherry Creek for an amazing dinner and event led by one of my favorite media personalities, Les Shapiro (host of radio and television). Not only was the dinner amazing, but our lovely “Table 26” was filled with the might and right.

Game day

Because Les Shapiro is so good to me, I got to play as a “celebrity” fifth at Cherry Creek Country Club on Monday for the Hyde Park Jewelers Diamonds in the Rough golf tournament (presented by Rolex, where’s mine?) to benefit Youth Biz, Judi’s House and the Global Down syndrome. My patient teammates included David Blake (from the Colorado state’s attorney’s office and son of Ernie Blake, a blessing to our Denver community for his fundraising efforts), who was the best stick in our fivesome.

Play puts twist on classic Greek tale ‘Lysistrata Jones’ takes stage at Aurora Fox By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com Blake Nawa’a of Centennial, who will receive his bachelor’s degree in music from the University of Denver this fall and start on a master’s in composition, is spending the summer as music director of a musical theater production, “Lysistrata Jones,” running Aug. 2-11 at the Aurora Fox. “I had heard a CD, but didn’t really know it,” he said of the new musical based on Aristophanes’ classic Greek play about women who decided to hold out on sex until their men quit making war. In this story, cheerleader Lysistrata Jones convinces her fellow cheerleaders to withhold from the basketball team members until they win a game — it’s been years of losing. The show ran off Broadway last year and director Keith Rabin Jr. heard about it from a dancer/choreographer who had been involved with a Chicago performance. Nawa’a says it’s a very funny show with a score by Lewis Flinn that’s hard to describe. “It’s happy, with R&B influence, some bubblegum pop and some gospel. It starts with an intense, over-dramatic Greek classical feel ….” How does he start to work on such a project? He received a copy of the score a month in advance and first tries to focus on the chorus, followed by the solo parts. There are two days of music rehearsal before the choreographer starts fitting dance to the score, so singers are familiar with the music they’ll dance to. Nawa’a says he makes a chart with how many people are involved in each number, so he can use rehearsal time as efficiently

IF YOU GO “Lysistrata Jones,” presented by Ignite Theatre, plays Aug. 2-11 at the Aurora Fox mainstage, 9900 E. Colfax Ave., Aurora. Performances: 7:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, 2:30 p.m. Sundays. Tickets: $27/$20 (optional Friday gala $45), 720-362-2697, ignitetheatre.com.

as possible. With some well-known shows, there is specific choreography that must be used, but that is not the case here, so Stephanie Prugh and Jeffrey Parizotto have designed it. And when does the band start? Instrumental music arrives later, for budgetary reasons. (Scores must be rented by a producing company.) They recently rehearsed with a guitarist and bass player — and the music director on keyboard. Again, he starts on the big numbers and work to the smaller ones. A four-piece band is approved, which rehearses in the final weeks. He’s building a network of musicians — this is his second stint as musical director after performing onstage in two earlier productions for Ignite Theatre. There’s a different energy in theater than a wedding gig, although the money doesn’t flow as well, so musicians enjoy the performance satisfaction. “It’s an interesting balance for a music director … a good atmosphere. I want everyone to be singing well — get to it first before the choreography.” He enjoys being interactive with the show and hopes in the future to write musicals as well as other music — “in a post-Sondheim mode.” There are lots of opportunities to compose for film and TV, he said. The experience as a music director will help when he’s composing a musical.

Women’s golf on the upswing Solheim puts spotlight on advances in sport By Jim Benton

jbenton@ourcoloradonews.com Many of the elite players from the Ladies Professional Golf Association and Ladies European Tour will be heading to Parker for the Solheim Cup later this month. The biennial, prestigious match-play tournament pits 12 U.S.-born professionals against 12 European counterparts. Colorado golf fans will see accurate drives, pinpoint approach shots and clutch putts during the event, which will be held Aug. 13-18 at the Colorado Golf Club. The statistics show these players are hitting longer and scoring lower than ever before. But are the elite women of today really more skilled that the top players of yesteryear? That’s a debatable topic, because balls and equipment keep improving and make it easier for those golfers who have correct swing techniques to flirt with or better par. “Overall, more women are playing the game globally,” said 59-year-old Denver resident Hollis Stacy, who won 18 LPGA tournaments and collected four victories in majors during her 26-year career. “The same scores are winning on the LPGA and European tours. Golf is more competitive. There are more people shooting those low scores and winning. “What happened in the game is the equipment is much better. The skill levels have remained the same. We had women on the tour drive the ball 270 yards. If we had the same equipment and balls the players have now, the drives would be in the 300s.” Donna H. White, an LPGA teaching professional who played 15 seasons on the tour and won three events before retiring in 1992, claims today’s players are taking advantage of opportunities. “I am quite confident given the ball of today and agronomic grooming of fairways and greens that Mickey Wright’s scoring average would be 67 or better,” said White. “I don’t think players today are any more skilled. I believe they have been exposed to greater opportunities than mine or previous generations.” Wright won 82 tournaments in 14 years on the LPGA Tour, including four U.S. Women’s Opens and three LPGA Championships. She retired from the tour in 1969 and won four consecutive Vare Trophies, the award that goes to the player with the lowest scoring average. The lowest scoring average for Wright was 72.46 in 1960. For the past 16 seasons, the LPGA’s Vare winner has had an average of 70.21 or lower. In fact, no winner has had an average higher than 71 since 1977. White credits better competitive exposure, technology and fitness for the improved statistics for current professionals. “My era was the first to benefit from Title IX,” said White. “Beth Daniel, Nancy Lopez

a tournament starting at age 4 every weekend. Tour players before me had to join the tour to compete. I couldn’t play soccer or baseball in my era. Today girls can play any sport they want. The skills and competitive maturity transfers nicely to golf.” Mike Scanlan, LPGA Director of Media Communications, didn’t have the chance to watch some of the LPGA’s former standouts. “Whether or not players on the LPGA today are better than those in past generations is a subjective question,” he said. “I think the depth of the LPGA is certainly greater than it’s ever been thanks in large part to the growth of the game globally. Scoring averages are between one and two strokes better than they were in 1980, but advancements in technology must factor into that debate. Whether you look at 1950, 1980 or today, the best players in the world are playing on the LPGA.” Janet Moore, a five-time Colorado stroke play champion who spends part of the year in Illinois as Wheaton College’s women’s golf coach, has watched women’s golf and the skills of players grow in the state. “I’ve seen golf in Colorado grow over the years and I’ve seen the caliber of play improve greatly,” said Moore. “It seems like the juniors are getting younger and younger and better and better. That’s very exciting. “I started playing when I was 10. I played because my family played. From what I’ve seen, the game has grown and the interest has grown for young girls. The caliber of play has improved. Just in the high school ranks now you need three or four good players to do well. ... I played on my boys

Colorado Women’s Golf Association Executive Director Robin Jervey noted enhanced play in Colorado tournaments. “We run 10 state championships, and looking at who plays in the championship flights of those events, the handicaps of the elite players have been going down,” said Jervey. “And there is more depth.” Globalization of the LPGA tour, better equipment and the tour’s attempt to promote physically attractive players has made women’s golf more appealing, and events like the Solheim Cup may spark a desire for more women to start playing. “I know when the Women’s Open came to Cherry Hills in 2005, they had record crowds,” said Jervey. “It only had to help interest in the women’s game because it got people excited to see people of that skill level right in their own backyard. Both the CGA and CWGA have been offering discounts to our members to purchase tickets to the Solheim Cup. “People going to the Solheim Cup get to participate in something that probably won’t come to Colorado again. The Ryder Cup and Solheim Cup move around quite a bit. With it going overseas and back every two years, there’s a slim chance it would wind up in Colorado again, or if it does, it will be a long time from now. People should take advantage of this opportunity.” Moore agrees. “I would think having a prestigious event like the Solheim Cup in Colorado would certainly make a positive impact on the golfing community in general,” she said. “I think it would spur interest.”

When players tee off each day, the atmosphere is raucous with fans from both sides yelling, chanting and singing songs to encourage players on the respective teams. • The three captains for the European team — captain Liselotte Neumann and assistants Annika Sorenstam and Carin Koch — are Swedish. “The three of us know each other very well,” said Sorenstam. “There will be some Swedish discussions so nobody will know what we’re talking about. We’ll keep that strategy to ourselves.” • European assistant captain Annika Sorenstam is married to Mike McGee, who is a U.S. citizen. “I told him you can come,” she said, “but only if you cheer for Europe.” • The United States has won eight of the 12 Solheim Cups and the Americas are 6-0 in matches played on U.S. soil. “Having the crowd on your side is huge,” European captain Neumann admitted. “Obviously that will be one of the challenges for us. Coming into the U.S., the crowd will be big and not too many will be cheering for us. We’re trying to bring as many friends, family and fans that we can. We just hope the Europeans that come are really loud.” • Juli Inkster has earned the most points for the United States in Solheim Cup matches. Inkster scored 18½ points in nine Solheim events (15-12-7) for 54.41 percent of points earned. Meg Mallon, this year’s U.S. captain, won 16½ points (13-9-7) with 83.33 percent of points earned in eight Solheim tournaments. For the Europeans, Laura Davies played in all 12 of the previous Solheim events and won 25 points (22-18-6) with 54.35 percent of points earned.

Fastpitch softball alive in Englewood City has six-team league in once-thriving sport By Tom Munds

tmunds@ourcoloradonews.com Each Tuesday, fans and players head to Englewood’s Belleview Park to watch or compete in one of the few remaining leagues in the once-popular sport of fastpitch softball. “I started playing in the early ‘90s and there were three Englewood leagues, a C league, a B league and a more talented A league. There were also a lot of fastpitch leagues in other communities around the metro area and the state,” Englewood resident Jeff Covington said. “Now, there is this six-team league here, a league in Boulder and a league in Pueblo. It appears to be a dying sport, and that is sad.” Part of the problem is the lack of young players. That was evident by the fact that players under 30 were few on the six teams that played at Belleview Park on July 9. Playing defense and even batting in fastpitch softball is much like baseball. For that reason, Covington said, it used to be that high school baseball players naturally migrated to fastpitch softball. He said now there are only a few high school graduates who join fastpitch teams. Another issue is the lack of pitchers. It takes a lot of practice and good coaching to develop into a competitive fastpitch softball pitcher. Most teams have older players on the mound, but Covington and his teammates on the Englehoods enlisted Rebekah Kilpatrick to pitch for them. Kilpatrick said she is still pitching because it is fun. “I got started a lot of years ago, my dad and I saw a flier on the recreation room wall about fastpitch softball and I begged them to let me play,” she said with a smile. “I got my way and I have always been a pitcher because I wanted to be in the middle of the field and the center of attention. The more I pitched, the more the sport became a passion and a love. I can’t get enough of it, even after 30 years on the mound.” She said pitched for Louisiana Tech University and, after college, just looked for teams that needed a pitcher when the Englehoods asked her to take the mound. She said she immediately agreed to pitch for the team. Covington, who fills in as the catcher, said Kilpatrick’s pitching keeps the team in a lot of games but, unfortunately, the Englehoods aren’t a power-hitting team and often don’t provide the run support to get the wins. On July 9, the Englehoods provided run support as they edged the RMWC Bad Cats 4-3. There was a scattering of fans in the stands, including Henry Olander, who said he came to watch the game because he still loves the sport though he doesn’t play now. He said he lived in Littleton when he started playing. For most of his 35-year fastpitch softball career, he said he played for two teams and pitched an average of two or three games a week. “I got started as a second baseman and the guy who ran the team talked me into learning to pitch,” the Highlands Ranch resident said. “The circular motion is natural and I’m told it doesn’t hurt the shoulder or arm. But it takes a long time to learn to throw and to control different pitches.” The Englehoods played the RMWC Bad Cats in the second game of the night on July 9. The caliber of competition was good as players from each team made diving stops, leaping catches and hit the ball hard at times. Centennial resident Joe Kelly said he had been playing fastpitch softball for more than 20 years. “We didn’t have baseball in my high school, I started

Jeff Covington connects with a pitch during the July 9 Englehoods-RMWC Bad Cats fastpitch softball game. From the 1950s until the 1980s, there were hundreds of teams playing fastpitch softball, but now there are fewer than 20 teams playing the sport in Colorado. Photos by Tom Munds playing slowpitch and then got on this team and fastpitch is a lot better,” he said. “I play centerfield for the RMWC Bad Cats. The position really fits me and I really enjoy that spot.” He agreed it is sad to see the decline in popularity of the sport. “I’ll stay with it as long as there is a league where we can play,” he said. “For some reason, young guys don’t know about fastpitch softball while girls and the woman all over the country are playing the sport. But young guys just don’t seem interested and you need young guys joining teams to keep them going. Like I said, it is sad that it is happening.”

Rebekah Kilpatrick delivers a strike as she pitches for the Englehoods in their July 9 fastpitch softball game against the RMWC Bad Cats. Kilpatrick has been pitching for 30 years because she loves the game. She got the win as the Englehoods edged the Cats 4-3. Tom Munds

tmunds@ourcoloradonews.com Fastpitch softball fan Sid Leachman says trying to find games today is like looking for hen’s teeth. “Fastpitch softball is a great game. I started playing in the late 1960s after I got home from the service and I played for more than 20 years,” Leachman said as he watched a game in Englewood. “I am too old to play now but I still love to watch the games. There aren’t as many good pitchers as there used to be and there aren’t as many teams around anymore. But any time I know the teams are playing, you’ll find me in the stands. But it’s getting harder and harder to even find games to watch. It’s a shame, but it seems the game is slowly dying from lack of participation.” Leachman, a Denver resident, lived in the Englewood area for many years. When he started playing in the 1960s while in the service, and when he got out of the Air Force in 1965 in Denver,

there were hundreds of fastpitch softball teams in Colorado. Today there are fewer than 20 teams total in the leagues in Boulder, Pueblo and Englewood. Fastpitch softball enjoyed its greatest popularity right after World War II, when it was about the only summer sporting event going on as men returned from the service. Newspaper reports of the era said some of the best games were played at Denver City Park. The reports said families routinely came out early to get a good spot to watch the game and dad would join them after work. Also, there were reserved seats in the press box for members of the Denver City Council. Two of the premier pitchers of the area were Harvey Sterkel and Larry Bollig. Sterkel was inducted to the American Softball Association Hall of Fame and Bollig was inducted into the Colorado Sports Hall of Fame. In one classic confrontation, Bollig and Sterkel faced off in an 18-inning game. Bollig fanned 37, Sterkel fanned 23 and Bollig’s team won 1-0. Bollig served in the Navy during World War II, and later in fastpitch softball competition pitched about

1,000 games and won 925. Sterkel moved to Aurora, Ill., where his record from 1956 until 1969 was 345 wins and 33 losses. The first rules for softball were drawn up in 1934 by the Joint Rules Committee on Softball. The original ball was 16 inches in circumference, but the majority of the sport adopted a ball 10 to 12 inches in circumference. While the sport was originally advertised as an indoor winter game for baseball players looking to maintain their dexterity during the off season, it gained so much popularity and recognition that it quickly became its own official sport. The United States and 113 countries have officially joined the International Softball Federation since the organization’s formation in 1952. Slowpitch softball has gained popularity. There are rules limiting who can hit home runs and many leagues are coed. However, in recent years, at least in Colorado, men’s fastpitch softball’s popularity has declined. However, a recent Amateur Softball Association report stated the popularity of fastpitch softball among girls and woman is at an all-time high and is still increasing.
