Bromley calls for Noon wants city small government to plan for future By George Lurie

glurie@ ourcoloradonews.com Monika Bromley is running for mayor against incumbent Cathy Noon. Born in Torrance, Calif., Bromley is a part-time yoga instructor and mother of five. She has an associate’s degree in paralegal studies and is the secretary of the Chaparral HOA. Before becoming a full-time stay-athome mom, Bromley worked as a paralegal and also as an executive assistant for a mining company and law firm. This is her first run for political office. She has lived in Centennial for 13 years. Colorado Community Media asked the following questions of candidates for public office in Centennial. Below are Bromley’s answers. Why are you seeking this office? I am not seeking office for myself. I have no political aspirations. I am doing this

for the citizens of Centennial. I aspire to be the voice of the citizens. I got involved because I had concerns regarding the path our city was heading. I wanted to make sure we were sticking to the core values this city was built on. I am proud to live here and want others to feel the same way. W h a t Bromley makes you the best person for the job? I am the best person, because I AM NOT A POLITICIAN. I am here as a citizen to help keep our city on the right track. I will bring honesty, integrity and accessibility to the office of mayor. I will bring fresh ears, eyes and ideas into the office. I will not

glurie@ ourcoloradonews.com Cathy Noon, who describes herself as a “lifelong community volunteer and organizer,” was elected Centennial’s mayor in 2009. Married with two children, Noon is running for re-election against Monika Bromley. Noon and her husband, Jim, own Centennial Container Inc., a packaging company, and Recycle Care, a recycling company for paper, plastic and metal waste products. Noon also works for Community Resource Services managing water and metropolitan districts. She studied theater at the University of Maryland and University of Colorado at Denver and has lived in Centennial for 14 years. Colorado Community Media asked the following questions of candidates for public office in Centennial. Below

are Noon’s answers. Why are you seeking this office? It has been an honor to serve as mayor for the past four years. Centennial has many successes to be proud of — healthy finances, beautiful Center Park, awards and acknowlNoon edgments for innovation and as Money magazine’s 47th best place to live in the U.S. I plan to continue to use my business, civic, and community experience to make Centennial the best city to live, work and play. What Centennial does, it should do well. City council will lose four members due to term limits so it is important

A developer has withdrawn an annexation petition and dropped plans to build the Dry Creek Corporate Center, a large, mixeduse office development once targeted for a vacant parcel near Easter Avenue and Havana Street. City council had scheduled a public hearing Oct. 14 on the proposed annexation of 77 acres of unincorporated Arapahoe County earmarked for the Dry Creek project. But the hearing was canceled that night after Deputy City Manager Wayne Reed announced that Westfield Company, the project’s developer, had decided not to move forward. The project was derailed, according to Reed, because of the additional cost to the developer of required street improvements to Easter and Havana that would bring the major arteries into compliance with city standards. Reed explained that Westfield had initiated the annexation request because the developer’s master plan required access to both Easter and Havana, streets that fall within the city’s current boundaries. In order to make the required street improvements, Westfield reportedly had sought financial concessions from the property owner, and the owner had balked at the additional project costs. Representatives from Westfield did not attend this week’s city council meeting nor did they respond to telephone messages seeking comment on their decision to back away from the project. Earlier this month, City Attorney Robert Widner received a letter from the developer notifying city officials that the annexation request was being withdrawn, and at the Oct. 14 regular city council session, he told council members that because Westfield had withdrawn its annexation petition, the city council no longer had jurisdiction to rule over the proposed annexation. City officials, including members of the council, appeared somewhat frustrated by the sudden collapse of the Dry Creek project. Reed said a significant amount of staff time and energy has been put into the annexation proposal. “The city has been in negotiations with the developer for the past six weeks,” he said. At a public hearing held Sept. 25, the Centennial Planning and Zoning Commission gave unanimous approval to an Initial Zoning Plan for the Dry Creek Corporate Center. Westfield had petitioned the city to annex the property as part of an ambitious master plan to build a sprawling, mixed-use development that could have included up to 2.4 million square feet of low- to mid-rise office space. “We always want good development and a cooperative partnership between owners, developers and the city,” said Mayor Cathy Noon. “Sometimes, people start down a path and then the path changes,” Noon added. “In this case, there was a large transportation project — improvements to the city’s streets — attached to it and the pieces just didn’t come together. Who knows what’s going to happen in the future?”

Field of opportunity rich but rocky Emily Jacomet and Connor Buckborough stood at the top of the escalator, their red “Ask Me” T-shirts loudly proclaiming their belief in the seemingly infinite possibilities lined up table-by-table in the cavernous room just beyond them. Emily: “It’s more than just an education. It’s an experience. You’ll remember these experiences and these friends for the rest of your life.” Connor: “It’s the world’s best network.” Emily: “I’ve met my lifelong friends.” Connor, nodding: “They’ll be in my wedding, for sure.” Student ambassadors from University of Northern Colorado in Greeley, Emily and Connor spent a recent afternoon welcoming an expected 4,000 high school students to the second annual national Denver College Fair at the Colorado Convention Center. “It’s overwhelming,” Emily said of the vast choice behind the doors. “It’s crazy. But once you find the school for you, you’ll just feel it.” Like a special relationship. Finding it, though, can feel almost

impossible as you walk into the hall where seemingly endless rows of tables in blue and white draping stretch from one end to the other. “It’s stressful,” Greenwood Village junior Jessica Diamond said, as she wandered down an aisle. The more than 300 universities offered something for everyone. There was Saint Michael’s College, a picturesque Catholic Vermont campus of 2,000 students. There was the spirited 24,000-student-strong University of Oregon. And there was Arizona State University with its mega-Tempe campus of more than 60,000 students. But even their stripped-down pres-

ence of tablecloths and pamphlets stirred a sense of excitement, of potential and promise and the glimpse of futures just waiting to be grasped. Students and parents strolled the aisles, looking, questioning, listening, waiting for that spark of connection that this could be a school to consider. “It’s kind of like in high school, you’re preparing for college,” said junior Elizabeth Lipshutz, a friend who accompanied Diamond. “In college, you’re preparing for the rest of your life.” Rafael Barron, a junior from Aurora, wants to be a doctor someday. He was looking for possibilities. “There’s so much to think about,” he said. “It makes me excited, not so much scared but nervous … about what would be the best choice for me.” His parents, Yadira and Gavino Barron, resolutely believe in the power of college as a launching pad to success, one worth sacrifice in time and money. “It’s so important to have that college degree,” Yadira said, “because no one can take that away from you.” She and Gavino have four children — Rafael will be the second to attend college. And Yadira will tell you she and her daughter, in her first year at Regis University, easily fall into dreaming about what lies ahead. Gavino is more pragmatic: “You’ve got dreams and goals, I’ve always said. A dream is just a dream — a goal is when you have a plan … This,” he said, glancing at the row of tables, “is part of the plan. This is a step from Point A to Point B. This is why we’re here.” But getting to Point B isn’t always easy these days. A report by the U.S. Department of Education finds that if the cost of attending public four-year institutions continues to increase, the price of a public education in 2016 will be more than twice what it was in 2001. “The rising cost of college,” the report continues, “may make it increasingly difficult for students to access and complete their postsecondary education.” About two-thirds of bachelor’s degrees recipients borrow money to pay for their education, research shows, and the aver-

age college senior graduates with $25,000 in student loan debt. That financial concern has refocused how colleges and universities reach out to prospective students, admissions directors say. “Four years at college is such a transformational time — you really figure out who you are,” said Anne Fattig, assistant director of admissions of small-town Simpson College in Iowa. “The right college kind of makes or breaks that to an extent.” But it’s not enough anymore to highlight only the experience. “It’s such an incredible investment,” Jeremy Brown of Saint Michael’s College said. Students need to “find that institution where not only they feel safe to explore who they are and who are going to become, but also a place where they have opportunities upon graduating.” So, outcomes — a college’s job placement and loan default rates, for instance — become key ingredients to the quest. Three years ago, Brown couldn’t have rattled off the college’s default rate without researching it first. Now, it’s at his fingertips. Students and parents, he said, want to know they’ll “be getting jobs when they graduate and can pay off their loans.” Connor Buckborough, the ambassador from UNC, is counting on being able to do just that. A sophomore studying communications and brewing technology, “I’m pretty far in the hole,” he said about his loan debt. But he has no doubt about his choices. “It’s going to be worth it, as long as you excel,” he said. “There’s always a way.” Emily Jacomet is certain, too. “One hundred percent. I’ll never regret going to college.” Education. Experience. Friendship. Self-discovery. Work. Amazing how a cavernous room of tables and pamphlets can scatter seeds of infinite possibilities.

city council candidates, district 1

Hanbery wants city Turley emphasizes to share identity fiscal responsibility By George Lurie

glurie@ourcoloradonews.com Mike Hanbery, a Southglenn resident and self-described “community advocate,” is running for the District 1 council seat currently held by Rick Dindinger, who is term-limited. His opponent in the race is Kathy Turley. Hanbery is the director of New Media Strategies at Webolutions, a Greenwood Village-based marketing agency. Married with two children, he has a bachelor’s degree in mass communication and political science from the University of Denver and an MBA from DU’s Daniels College of Business. He has lived in Centennial for 10 years. This is his first run for political office. Why are you seeking this office? Economic development and communications opportunities fitting my professional experience coincide with Rick Dindinger’s term limitation. I’ve earned the confidence of the people who know how the work of the city gets done. I’ve been endorsed by current Centennial District 1 City Council representatives Rick Dindinger (R) and Vorry Moon (D), current District 4 Centennial City Council representative Ron Weidmann (R), former District 3 Centennial City Council representative Andrea Suhaka (I), Centennial Planning and Zoning Commissioner Michael Sutherland (R) and Centennial founder John Brackney (R). I want to maintain the city’s momentum while keeping true to our model of limited government. What makes you the best person for the job? I am the only candidate with positions and plans to help District 1 neighborhoods maintain their character and quality of life through the development we will see over the next four years, including the

Littleton Village (Marathon Oil) property; and who has met with Centennial’s director of economic development, past director of community development, current city manager and city attorney about issues facing the city. I’ll improve the city’s relationships. Endorsements by Littleton City Council representatives Phil Cernanec (R) and Bruce Stahlman (R) show I understand the importance of working with our neighbors. I’ll proactively communicate with my fellow residents. What do you think is the most important issue Hanbery facing Centennial and how will you approach it if elected? We face many challenges. Lacking in leadership, our Senior Commission is in danger of losing funding. Improvement is needed in road repair, traffic management and snow removal. Our current garbage collection system places undue stress on our neighborhood streets, in addition to other problems. These issues can be resolved logically, almost mathematically. A more insidious, overarching problem is our city’s lack of a shared identity. Centennial is young, geographically broad and fragmented. Many in the western part of town still habitually put “Littleton” on our return addresses. The city’s map east of I-25 is severely fragmented. Forty-seven percent of Centennial residents did not live here when the city was founded. We must become the place to which their children wish to return to raise their families. Let’s bring continuity to our city. When our residents proudly declare they are “from Centennial,” our city will be even safer and more livable.

By George Lurie

glurie@ourcoloradonews.com A self-described “seniors’ advocate” and community activist who served on Centennial’s Home Rule Charter Commission, Kathy Turley is running against Mike Hanbery for the District 1 seat currently held by Rick Dindinger, who is term-limited. The longtime Forest Park resident, maried and mother of four, ran unsuccessfully for Centennial City Council 12 years ago when the city was first incorporated. She has a bachelor’s degree in sociology from San Jose State and is a former sales executive for Kaiser Permanente. She has lived in Centennial for 41 years. Why are you running for city council? I am proud to be a citizen of the City of Centennial! For over 35 years we have lived in District 1, the oldest part of the city and the most unique, in terms of its historical context. I will represent District 1 with a mission to protect, preserve and maintain our neighborhoods in the western end of Centennial. As we continue on the journey, growing our city, encouraging commercial and retail business, I want to join with my fellow councilmen in dedicating our time and expertise towards the success and future of the City of Centennial. What makes you the best person for the job? I have recently retired and am able to devote the time necessary to be a fulltime city councilman. My experience of 40 years in the public/private sector is a

perfect prerequisite for this job. My vision for Centennial is fiscal responsibility, being a good steward with taxpayers’ dollars and less government is good government, providing just the basics of public safety, public works and economic development. Lastly, to keep Centennial as a suburb, I want to support the Parks and Recreation Districts whose responsibility is to maintain Centennial’s beauty where we live, work and play. What is the most important issue facing Centennial? If elected to the city Turley council, I will focus on three areas: First, our identity! It is not a Center Park, nor a grandiose building. It is not your normal city! Our signature is the founding fathers’ original intent, “the virtual city.” Second, we need to protect our commercially zoned properties, one of our most precious commodities. Let’s explore “economic gardening” and create a symbiotic mix of a myriad of different, unique businesses. Supporting our pro-business initiatives and funding future road projects and transportation maintenance needs should be a high priority. Third, we need to be making every effort to partner with the county, working together with a common goal.

Election process is underway Mail-in ballots go out to voters across county By Tom Munds

tmunds@ourcoloradonews.com Election Day is Nov. 5, but mail-in ballots were scheduled to be sent to residents Oct. 15, starting the election process that concludes when the polls close at 7 p.m. on Election Day. This year, Arapahoe County is conducting a coordinated election using mail-in ballots. Matt Crane, Arapahoe County clerk and recorder, said at an Oct. 11 election information session that some voters return completed ballots soon after they receive them. “We usually have quite a few ballots sent back about a week or so after ballots were mailed,” he said. “Then, the volume of returned ballots slows down until near Election Day, when the number of ballots received picks up dramatically.” The county mailed out more than 343,000 ballots. Mail-in ballots must be received by 7 p.m. Nov. 5 to be counted. Postage required to return the ballot by mail is 66 cents, so placing two first-class stamps on the return envelope is recommended. Ballots can be returned by mail or taken to one of the 19 drop-off sites around the county. There is a drive-through ballot drop-off at the Arapahoe County Administration Building at 5334 S. Prince St. and another one at the Arapahoe County Elections Warehouse at 5351 S. Federal Blvd. Ballots also can be taken to one of the four voter service and polling centers. The location and hours for the drop-off sites and voter centers are listed on the website at www.arapahoevotes.com; click on “2013 Election Information” and follow the links.

“We have established four voter service and polling centers that will be open starting Oct. 15 and will offer a variety of services to the voter,” Crane said. “Residents can register to vote, update voter registration, request a mail-in ballot, request a replacement mail-in ballot, drop off mail-in ballots and, starting Oct. 15, residents can cast ballots at voting machines.” The four voting service and polling centers are located at the Aurora Motor Vehicles Branch Office at 490 S. Chambers Road; the Centennial Motor Vehicle Branch Office at 6954 S. Lima St.; the Littleton Election Office at 5334 S. Prince St.; and the Byers Motor Vehicle Branch Office at 538 N. Highway 36. Residents can still register to vote online until Oct. 28 and can register to vote in person up to the time the polls are closed on Election Day. Crane urged residents to use the county website at www.arapahoevotes.com as an information source. “Our pages have been redesigned to provide resident with a lot of information about the election and voting,” the county clerk said. “The redesign was aimed at making the website easier to navigate. For example, the page has navigation to the desired area by image.” There are five areas of information on the website: voter registration, where to go, election results, election information and my information. The election information area includes a sample ballet, candidate contact information and a way to track a mail-in ballot. Some areas to help voters under the “my information” section includes registration information, a way a voter can find out what precinct he or she lives in and who the elected representatives for that precinct are, including federal, state and local officeholders.

What do you think is the most important issue facing Centennial and how will you approach it if elected? I believe the most important issue facing Centennial is managing the city’s growth and expansion against the growth of costs and the size of government. Many of our streets need repairs while we also have some major expansion issues that are looming. We need to attract new businesses to Centennial with incentives like fewer regulations. We have fiber optics in the ground to make our city more efficient and need to plan with eyes on the future. Technology will play a big part in our efficiency. Forward thinking, creativity, and collaboration will be needed. I have the technologybased background to help facilitate these activities and can help lead the discussions for our city’s technological future. I will advocate for the everyday citizen, pick up the phone when they call, and work with the council members to arrive at sensible solutions. Vote for me, Theresa Martens, and I will represent you.

Truhlar’s biggest focus is street repair By George Lurie

glurie@ourcoloradonews.com First-time candidate Doris Truhlar is vying for the council seat in District 2 that is currently held by Sue Bosier, who is term-limited. Her opponent in the race is Theresa Martens. Together with her husband, Truhlar runs a Centennial-based law firm. Earlier in her career, the mother of four and Palos Verdes resident worked as a reporter and editor. She has a bachelor’s degree in journalism from the University of Missouri and master’s and law degrees from the University of Denver. She has lived in Centennial for 30 years. Why are you seeking this office? One, serving on council would continue my record of public service, reflected in projects such as the Arapahoe Pro Se Clinic, which I founded 15 years ago (in which I still serve as a volunteer). That program provides free legal services for low-income Arapahoe County residents. Two, I care about Centennial and want to

work to ensure its future. Three, it would be interesting. I relish the opportunity, for example, to study and apply my skills to the city’s needs in law enforcement, street maintenance, and urban planning. Four, I believe my background is uniquely suited to serving. What makes you the best person for the job? Truhlar I am hard-working, energetic, intelligent, a good listener, and well versed in local government issues. Prior to attending law school (University of Denver), I was a newspaper reporter, and had the opportunity to learn about municipal government. I am a proven leader, having had numerous leadership roles in the legal community (including president of two large associations). Not only have I lived in Centennial for 30 years, but I also own a business (Truhlar and

Truhlar, LLP) located in Centennial and District 2. I truly care about the best interest of my city and my district. What do you think is the most important issue facing Centennial and how will you approach it if elected? The streets are our lifeline — we all use them and well-maintained streets attract business and make our neighborhoods safer. I believe that fixing the streets that are in disrepair without raising taxes is an issue of utmost importance. The streets that need the most attention are in the older parts of Centennial and some of them actually need replacing, rather than just a new layer of asphalt. Having good streets helps us develop an identity that includes our designation (eight years in a row) as the “safest city in Colorado” and one of the best places to live in the country. I will approach this issue by making streets my “theme” and pushing to replace and repair those streets in need. This will be my continuing commitment and a theme of mine during my term as a councilwoman.

School calendar will likely keep break Thanksgiving week part of proposed schedule By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@ourcoloradonews.com Families will be happy to know that Littleton Public Schools plans to continue letting kids have the full week of Thanksgiving off for the next two years, assuming the district calendar committee’s proposal is approved. “There is a high value in this community for that week of Thanksgiving,” Clay Abla, director of secondary education and the committee’s facilitator, told the LPS Board of Education Oct. 10. The trade-off is that school will start on Fridays both years — Aug. 15, 2014, and Aug. 14, 2015 — instead of students attending the Monday of Thanksgiving week. The committee felt Friday is a good day to do orientation and getting-to-know-you activities, then kids can have the weekend off before diving into instruction on Monday. “I can see it working,” said Lucie Stanish, board member. “We’ll have to do some

PR, I think.” It remains to be seen whether there will be 172 or 173 school days, depending on how ongoing contract negotiations with teachers affect furlough days. But first semester will continue to be a few days shorter than second semester, allowing it to end before winter break. School will end for the summer before Memorial Day both years, as well. The committee also tried to minimize interruptions during testing windows, but the state hasn’t yet defined when they will be. Abla said they made their best guess. The committee plans no more than one shortened day in a week, with six late-start days in first semester and four in the second. Those are used for “planned learning communities,” a time when teachers gather to collaborate. The idea of having more in the beginning of the year is to give them a running start, said Abla. “Our parents know our teachers are really engaged throughout the year, and this is not just silly planning time,” said Abla. The board will vote on whether to accept the committee’s recommendations during its Oct. 24 meeting.

Fertilizer: arch enemy of waterways. Streams, lakes and reservoirs don’t need it. Your lawn may not need it, either. Fertilizer, like other products that serve a necessary purpose, can become a problem if misused. Most lawn fertilizers contain nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium, represented by a three-number string on the front of the bag. Nutrient needs vary from lawn to lawn and can only be determined by testing the soil. If over-applied, rain carries away excess nutrients not needed by plants and washes them to the nearest waterway, causing excess algae growth that uses up vital oxygen for fish. Please take the time to have your soil tested to determine your lawn’s needs. This simple, small change in your lawn care makes a huge difference, not only to the health of your lawn but also to your nearby rivers, creeks and lakes. Local stormwater agencies are teaming together to bring you this message. We take this so seriously that we posted this ad rather than send you more garbage in the mail.

opinions / yours and ours

Join effort to combat domestic violence October is a supercharged month. The media is frantically covering election issues on top of other breaking news. Families are busy, busy. Students are buckling down in their studies and diving into extracurricular activities. School boards and other decisionmaking groups are in full swing. Sports — pro and local — are pulsing everywhere. People are striving toward their goals and working hard. Everything that was in neutral in August is in high gear. This is why it’s important to wave our arms in the air once in a while to suggest a timeout to be aware of ways to help others. We don’t highlight every awareness month — especially given that many months have upward of a dozen important causes — but we want to take a minute to point out that October is Domestic

our view

Violence Awareness Month. This one has been with us more than two decades, has grown in many ways and continues to be so urgently important. We urge readers to take time to learn more about domestic violence and consider a few statistics available from domesticviolencestatistics.org. • Every nine seconds in the United States a woman is assaulted or beaten. • Domestic violence is the leading cause of injury to women — more than car accidents, muggings and rapes combined.

• Studies suggest that up to 10 million children witness some form of domestic violence annually. We know the road to recovery for someone suffering domestic violence is long, challenging and costly. Often a woman leaves an abusive spouse numerous times before securing a safe, independent setting. For many women, the hope is that the situation will get better, so they keep trying to work it out. The journey typically involves advocacy services, emergency shelters, transitional housing, support groups and legal advice. Most domestic violence victims are short on resources, and in a situation where a lot of assistance is needed — which is why funding is so important. Further, we know from surveys that domestic violence spikes during sluggish economies. For now, the arc of the

economy seems to be on a good line — far improved from the stock market crash of September 2008 — but so many people are not clear of tough years. As surely as domestic violence is portrayed on so many TV crime shows, the problem continues in our neighborhoods. So please take a few moments to learn more about the problem. Think about how to be a source for people who need help — all kinds of help — and how to help others sort out options and move forward. We urge readers to visit ccadv.org (Colorado Coalition Against Domestic Violence) to identify local connections. Most organizations need contributions for programs and most need volunteers in a variety of human service programs. Take a few moments, see how you can help.

letters to the editor Choose Martens for Centennial

Centennial has four seats opening up in city council, and in the best interest of the people and the city of Centennial, those seats need to be replaced with councilors able to look past party lines and look for solutions. 1. Our system of government requires checks and balances to work well. We can see at the state and national level today what happens when there is a one-sided agenda at work. Gridlock, dissension, and partisanship, instead of a representative government with the people’s best interests put first. 2. To vet a topic and come up with the BEST solutions you need differing perspectives to bring out the influencing variables and chip away at them. 3. Variables with negative impact on specific people groups may never be recognized and considered, and time, energy, and money are wasted in implementation, litigation, removal, and redevelopment when it becomes evident that the solution in fact created additional problems. To find equilibrium you must create disequilibrium to remove the weighty issues that holds back consensus. Being a special education teacher, Theresa Martens understands this and can bring the “civil discourse” needed to vet out solutions that will best represent all of Centennial. She will hear your concerns and protect your interests. Even if you are of a differing ideology, we all win when there is discussion and rational problemsolving in our city government. Think about whether you want these four seats filled with people that will just “rubber stamp” the current council’s agenda, or if you want people that will listen to the constituency, question the motives and consequences of each issue, and ensure that each decision is best for Centennial. Cherie Vaughan Greenwood Village

Vote for Martens in District 2

As a concerned parent, teacher and neighbor, Theresa Martens has seen people’s freedoms and prosperity eroded, and she wants to restore responsive government. Excessive taxation, fiscal profligacy and overreaching regulation need to be stopped whenever it occurs. Theresa is not a politician. She knows that good governance requires a balanced budget, open and trustworthy communication, and adherence to the principles of liberty. As a special-ed teacher for 27 years, Theresa pledges to defend the dignity of

all. Civility, honesty and respect are her keys for effective discussions that yield sensible solutions. It is her stated goal to work tirelessly for fair and ethical practices in all of our city’s endeavors. We need to elect Theresa Martens for Centennial District 2. Peg Brady Centennial

Turley deserves support

This November Kathy Turley is a candidate for Centennial City Council, District 1. I would encourage voters in District 1 to vote for Kathy for several reasons. First, I have known Kathy for over 10 years, and I have found her to always be honest and ethical. We need more people elected who have these qualities. Second, Kathy is a proven leader. She has served on several committees providing services to our community and has brought new ideas, improved values and insight to those groups. For several years, she chaired the Arapahoe County Senior Day Event and identified corporate sponsors, facilitated team meetings, and recruited exhibitors. This is leadership that our city council needs. Finally, Kathy is a fiscal conservative. We need our city council to listen to the citizens and then implement decisions that we, the voters, want. I encourage District 1 voters to cast their vote for Kathy. Nancy Doty Centennial

Cathy Noon has earned support

Four years ago Centennial was at a crossroads as its first mayor stepped down because of term limits. At that time, Centennial citizens elected Cathy Noon to be the city’s second mayor. Now we are exceedingly fortunate in the upcoming Nov. 5 election to have the opportunity to re-elect Mayor Noon to serve a second four-year term. As mayor, Cathy Noon has preserved Centennial’s original vision with a unique and effective leadership style that has fostered accountability, accessibility, transparency, and consensus building through listening, respect, and compassion. Mayor Noon’s focus on efficiency, value, and technology has resulted in a high level of services with low taxes. Over the past four years, Centennial has enjoyed the many benefits of her leadership, including healthy finances, the beautiful new Centennial Center Park, and many awards and acknowledgements for innovation. Under Mayor Noon’s leadership, the city

from the editor A note on letters of endorsement

Many of you have written us letters endorsing a candidate or taking a stance on a ballot issue as the Nov. 5 election approaches. We appreciate these letters to the editor and many of them have run on our opinion pages over the past few weeks. It is important to note that while Nov.

5 is officially “Election Day,” this is an allmail-in election. As such, we will not be running letters of endorsement after the Oct. 24 or 25 (depending on the publication you receive) edition. The impact of such letters would be minimal with most voters already having cast their ballots. As always, thank you for reading. — Chris Rotar, editor

has been recognized nationally as being the 47th best place to live in the U.S., and the 25th safest U.S. city with a population over 200,000 residents. So let’s keep Centennial’s future bright by re-electing Cathy Noon this November. In return for Mayor Noon’s tireless energy as she dedicates her life to family, Centennial, and managing her small family business, when your ballot arrives in the mail in mid-October, I urge you to mark it for CATHY NOON to ensure that our city stays on track over the next four years.

Put Hanbery on council

I am a Centennial District 1 resident and I urge every voter to support Mike Hanbery for our City Council District 1. Mike is the only candidate with a vision that matches the vision our citizens have voiced over the past 13 years. He is the only candidate with the experience of working well with others of different viewpoints to reach the best solution for a city he cares deeply for. Mike can and will work to keep the City moving in the direction our citizens have said they want our City to go.

Additionally, Mike has other bipartisan endorsements from current and past council members, the majority of the charter commissioners who wrote our city charter, and citizens who volunteer to work for our city. These are the people who have listened to the citizens, worked hard for the city and made this city the great place it is to live, work and play. These bipartisan endorsers picking Mike Hanbery, exemplifies the fact that Mike Hanbery is the best candidate for District 1 City Council. I will vote for Mike and I urge you to vote for him also for the sake of our city, our way of life and our quality of life. Keep Centennial working for you — vote for Mike Hanbery! William C.

School-funding tax wrong in many ways

— far of e s many s in

need e

an

Lest I be accused of never supporting a tax increase, I urge that you vote “Yes” on Proposition AA, this November’s ballot measure that would raise taxes on recreational marijuana to pay for its regulation and to keep it out of the hands of kids. However, that is definitely as far as I will go for this election. Amendment 66, the $1 billion a year income tax increase for school funding, cries out for a sound thumping at the polls for a host of reasons. • It raises taxes on a frail economic recovery when Coloradans haven’t seen their incomes budge since 2000. It proposes to spend an additional $1 billion per year on an unreformed school system just as Colorado is attempting to recover from floods that were one of the worst natural disasters in state history. • It’s a wealth redistribution scheme that unfairly burdens taxpayers in communities like the one I represent. • It funnels more funding through the state, further undermining the principle

of local control through elected school boards, and vests ever more power in a remote Denver legislature. In 2008, Colorado and the nation experienced the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression. While the economy has marginally improved since then, the recovery remains tentative. Raising taxes on an anemic economy is exactly what the doctor didn’t order. If Amendment 66 passes, the formula that determines how the proceeds will be allocated between school districts

was written into legislation sponsored by Denver Democrat Sen. Michael Johnson, approved by the Denver-dominated Legislature, and signed into law by Denver Democrat Gov. John Hickenlooper. The formula was adopted without a single Republican vote. Because the formula favors low-income students and English-language learners, it favors Denver and Aurora over more affluent districts like Cherry Creek. For example, Boulder, Douglas and Jefferson counties (similar to Cherry Creek) will pay nearly one-third of the new income taxes, but their school districts will receive only a little more than half of those dollars back. For a parent whose children attend Cherry Creek schools, a yes vote on Amendment 66 is a vote that will make it just that much more difficult for those schools to retain their nationally recognized high standards. If I have learned anything in my seven years as a state legislator, it’s the “golden rule”: He who has the gold, makes the

rules. Amendment 66 is a statewide income tax that will be administered under the Gold Dome. While well-intentioned, the state legislators who represent the eastern plains, our mountain communities and inner-city Denver don’t understand the needs of your children’s neighborhood school nearly as well as your local Cherry Creek school board member does. Going to school board meetings is easy — try it. You can shake your school board member’s hand and discuss issues that affect your child’s education. Try that with a legislator from Durango. Or Sterling. It ain’t gonna happen. If Amendment 66 passes, a distant and remote Legislature will have just that much more control over your child’s education. Don’t let that happen. Vote no on Amendment 66. Republican Spencer Swalm is a state representative for District 37, which includes part of Centennial

This is the time of year where I am having conversations and planning sessions with corporate clients and individuals as we set expectations, set budgets, and plan for the success in the coming year. Like many people I speak with, the planning for our individual success starts to take shape around December, with many people waiting until the end of December, like maybe even New Year’s Eve. How would next year be different if we took out our notebook or computer and started sketching out our plans, goals, desires, and dreams for next year right now,

okey That’s what ballot issue 3B represents. arter Our schools are on average 50 years old. nnial Their roofs, plumbing, ventilation systems, electrical systems, flooring, fire and safety systems need major repairs and upgrades to keep them safe learning environments for all of our students. The state does not oard provide funding for school repairs, so it is not surprising that the needs far exceed the n its district’s budget. Much of this work in all LPS schools can be completed through this , $80 million bond issue, which would NOT increase the tax rate for LPS taxpayers. Putting this issue before voters was g not a decision we took lightly. The list red, of critical needs in our school buildings day keeps growing, and these issues must be ans addressed locally. Historically low interest nt in rates have created a rare opportunity to ion make a significant, positive impact on our schools without increasing the taxes you pay to LPS. We felt it was our obligation to bring this question to our community’s voters to decide. We encourage you to join us in voting in favor of ballot issue 3B this November in support of our schools. Your Littleton Public Schools Board of Education Bob Colwell, president; Lucie Stanish, vice president; Renee Howell, treasurer; Mary Nichols, secretary; Sue Chandler, assistant secretary

School vote deserves support

Voting yes on 3B is an easy decision for me and I hope it will be for others. We moved to Colorado almost 10 years ago and we chose Littleton Public Schools because of the history of excellence. My children have thrived in our LPS schools. Our strong schools benefit our children directly, but also have a positive impact on our property values and our community as a whole. I respect the prudent decisions that have been made by our LPS leadership. As a district, we always put our children first and we don’t spend taxpayer dollars on fancy extras. LPS has a long history of making smart decisions that promote both academic excellence and fiscal responsibility. This history has built trust and good will with our community. Ballot Issue 3B is another smart decision. The $80 million in funds generated by 3B will go directly to a well-researched list of important repairs and safety improve-

ments. By refinancing existing debt at a lower interest rate, the school district is able to issue new bonds without increasing the tax rate. This approach is consistent what many of us have done as homeowners — refinance so that funds can go back into maintain our property. I trust that LPS will always keep our children safe at school, but with the funds from 3B we can finally make serious repairs to roofs, HVAC systems, electrical and other areas that will help keep our buildings safe and strong for the future. I know that many of my fellow residents do not have children in our schools, but this community has a strong history of supporting our schools. Please join me in voting yes on 3B. Amy Walker Kurtz Centennial

Former board chiefs back 3B

As former presidents of the Littleton Public Schools Board of Education, we have a commitment to our community’s children and schools. We, too, have faced the challenge of maintaining a safe, secure and supportive learning environment for our students in our older school buildings. We have watched with great interest and satisfaction as this board has made decisions that are financially sound and in the best interests of the entire community. We support this board’s decision to ask voters to approve the sale of $80 million in bonds this November for school repairs. We can each attest to the challenges LPS faces when trying to maintain its aging facilities. Keeping our schools safe and in good condition is the right thing to do for students, for employees, and for the community as a whole. The fact that this can be done without increasing the tax rate means that there is no better time. Delaying would only mean paying higher interest rates and having less funding for school improvements. These are the kinds of responsible decisions you want your elected officials to make on your behalf. We will be voting YES on 3B this November. We strongly urge you to vote yes, as well. Aims McGuinness, BOE term 1983-1991; Karen Kaplan, BOE term 1979-1995; William Cisney, BOE term 1993-1997; Jack Ballard, BOE term 1991-1999; Mary McGlone, BOE term 1995-2005; Diana Holland, BOE term 1999-2007

able? I think the answer is yes. What will 2014 look like for you? What is it that you want to be, do, or have? What will it take to get you there? Who can help you achieve your goals? What are the obstacles in your way? How much are you willing to invest in yourself and in others to meet and exceed your expectations? How much time are you willing to commit? What other resources do you need in order to reach success? I know that sounds like a lot of questions and maybe even a lot of work, but taken one at a time and over a period of time it becomes so much

easier. That is why successful companies and people take planning for success very seriously and start well in advance of the coming year. How are you doing with planning your own success for 2014? Are you planning and preparing to win? I would love to hear all about it at gotonorton@gmail.com and as you plan your own success it will be a better than good week.

OBITUARIES Wenrich

Mary Elizabeth Wenrich May 26, 1923 - August 13, 2013

Mary Elizabeth Wenrich, 90 years old. Born May 26, 1923 in New York City NY. Passed away August 13, 2013. She moved to Colorado over 50 years ago and lived here in Littleton until 2011. She is survived by her daughters , Lisa Wenrich- Baltimore MD, and LoriAnne Wenrich Littleton, CO. and Granddaughter Keenan Sunderwirth –Cambridge MA Mary was well known and loved by many for her kind heart and willingness to help all. In 1990 the Arapahoe County Bar Association awarded her the Charles B. Dillon award, and in 1991 she was voted Littleton’s “Most Valuable Citizen”, an honor that she truly cherished for the rest of her life. She donated over 3000 hours of volunteer time at the Arapahoe Library District from 2000-2007. During her time in Littleton she wrote for both the Littleton Independent and for the Denver post “zone” edition. She served on numerous boards and committees including; “American Women in Radio and Television”, the “Young Musicians Foundation”, and she was appointed as a special advocate as a Guardian Ad Litem for her work with abused children through “Court House Incorporated” (CHINS- now known as Beacon Center) Mary never wanted anyone to mourn her passing, but rather to celebrate her life. In accord with her wishes, a “Party” to do just that will be held on October 19th at 2pm at the Southglenn Commons Club house at 2295 E Geddes Ave Centennial Co 80122. We hope all that knew her can attend.

Gotto says residents cite road concerns By George Lurie

glurie@ourcoloradonews.com Former Dish Network executive and now full-time, stay-at-home dad Mark Gotto is running unopposed for the District 3 council seat currently held by Rebecca McClelland, who is term-limited. Gotto has a bachelor of science degree from the University of South Dakota and currently serves on the Centennial Open Space Commission. The Iowa native is married with two children. This is his first run for political office. He has lived in Centennial for five years. Why are you seeking this office? I am passionate about the success of the city. I resigned as vice president of DISH Network to stay home with my family. I now can volunteer at Children’s Hospital and for the city. Through volunteering I realized I have assets that could help Centennial. I have a strong contract background. I have run large budgets allowing me to ask the right questions when prioritizing the budget. I have a strong communication background. I know how to keep citizens informed. I am running for office because I love our city and have the skill sets needed for continued success. What makes you the best person for the job? On the campaign trail it was apparent that citizens want three characteristics in a councilperson: 1) Know the issues. 2) Be a strong communicator. 3) Have the ability to fix issues. I am an executive that takes the time to fully understand the topic be-

fore I make decisions impacting a company or city. I have been in customer service for over 20 years. I know what the expectations are of a customer or citizen when they have a concern. I have a background of improving processes that fix problems. My unique combination of executive experience and city service makes me a strong candidate. What do you think is Gotto the most important issue facing Centennial and how will you approach it if elected? I was appointed to the Open Space Commission and represented our HOA at CENCon. Through this service I gained knowledge on what issues are facing Centennial. My top focus area is sustaining economic growth allowing for yearly, targeted investment in city infrastructure. Talking to citizens there is a large concern about deteriorating roads. Paying for these improvements takes increased commercial revenues. Keeping taxes low for an economic development advantage is key. Simplifying the process for new businesses is another key. I am interviewing these businesses to get ideas on how to do this. We have to ask ourselves as a council, “What separates us from other cities around us to attract creative and profitable companies?” I am an advocate to improve your neighborhood’s roads. It will be difficult if we cannot continue to be a business-friendly city.

State law redefines active voters Are You a 50+ Jobseeker in the Denver Metro Area?

House Bill 1303 increases county’s list to 334,000 By Tom Munds

tmunds@ourcoloradonews.com A 2013 state law changed the number of active registered voters in Arapahoe County, as well as the breakdown of active registered voters with party affiliation or who are independent. Before passage of the new law, mail-in ballots were only sent to active voters, and residents who didn’t vote in the last general election were deemed inactive. Matt Crane, Arapahoe County Clerk and Recorder, said House Bill 1303 spelled out new definitions of who is an active voter and who is an inactive voter. “The new definition resulted in the designation of the vast majority of inactive voters as active voters,” he said. “The new inactive voter definition applied to individuals the clerk’s office has received indica-

tions they are no longer in the county, such as having main returned as undeliverable.” Figures supplied by the clerk’s office showed that prior to the bill passage there were 300,828 active voters and 74,206 inactive voters. After passage of House Bill 1303, the county’s list of active voters swelled to 345,262 while the list of inactive voters declined to 29,757. The breakdown of county voters by party affiliation also changed. The statistics list those voters affiliated with the Republican, Democrat, American Constitution, Green and Libertarian parties, as well as those who are unaffiliated. Before the new law, there were 104,622 Democrats, 99,306 Republicans and 93,858 unaffiliated active registered voters in Arapahoe County. The new law means there are 117,660 unaffiliated voters, which is the largest single group of active registered voters. The new figures also showed 116,153 registered Democrats and 108,187 Republicans were active.

CITY COUNCIL CANDIDATES, DISTRICT 4

Tate sees need for stewardship Whelan has eye on infrastructure By George Lurie

glurie@ourcoloradonews.com John Allen “Jack” Tate, a Piney Creek resident, is running for the District 4 council seat currently held by term-limited Ron Weidmann. Tate has two opponents in the race, William Turner and Charles Whelan. The Nashville native is married with three children and has lived in Centennial for eight years. Tate has a bachelor’s degree in engineering from Duke University and an MBA from the University of Colorado-Denver. He is general manager and vice president overseeing a strategic business unit for Littleton-based Investive Building Projects. This is his first run for political office. Why are you seeking this office? Pretty simple: an opportunity to give back what I have been fortunate to receive. I love how Centennial is a great place to have a family and enjoy all those intangible benefits of being in a nice community. I have a strong appreciation for how the city runs like a business, with an attitude of customer satisfaction, fiscal responsibility, and investment for the long term. I see an opportunity for me to learn up close how better government works, yet provide my experience and knowledge: reflections based on lessons learned from working with various municipalities, school districts, and state agencies. What makes you the best person for the job? I respect my opponents, as they are longtime, valued contributors to the city. As a candidate, I merely have some unique skills to bring to the city as a productive member of council: experience related to analyzing decisions financially, contract

negotiations, project management, and investing in infrastructure. More importantly, business associates attest that I possess an evenness and fairness in my interactions. I engage issues with an intellectual curiosity. Working with a CFO one day and then a tradesman the next has inculcated a willingness to interact and listen: a realization that the best ideas often come from the room. What do you think is the most important issue facing Centennial and how will you approach it if elected? The most important issue is working toward what Tate is important over the long term while we address what is urgent now. The city must continue to optimize infrastructure, such as important road expansions, high-quality Internet connectivity, and streamlined customer service functions. In 20 years, the city will be larger, with pressure for expanded and/ or enhanced services, thus straining revenue. Further, these pressures will expose fault lines along the city’s lack of cohesion and some citizens’ perception of value. It is an issue of a perpetual fiscal stewardship. My approach is a long view, which emphasizes support for creating, attracting and retaining businesses, and builds upon the city’s success factors in promoting an attractive ecosystem for economic development. This requires that city stakeholders understand what we have to offer and be able to present that in an attractive way. I envision an effort to fulfill a tagline for the City of Centennial: The City of Success.

By George Lurie

glurie@ourcoloradonews.com Charles J. “CJ” Whelan is an entrepreneur and small business owner running for the District 4 council seat currently held by Ron Weidmann, who is term-limited. His opponents in the race are William Turner and John Allen Tate. Whelan, a graduate of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, is the cofounder and chief technical officer of the teleconferencing services company Adigo. He is maried and has lived in Centennial for 29 years. Why are you seeking this office? I deeply believe that government at a local level is what makes the most difference in our day-to-day lives. However, it is the level of government we often think about the least. Public safety (fire protection, police), public works (snow removal, road repair), and planning (what is going to be built next door) are examples of what touches us every day. We just expect these services to be there, and that only happens when a municipality is working well. I want to see Centennial continue to provide its citizens great service that is smart, impactful, and cost effective. What makes you the best person for the job? I know Centennial well and have worked hard to make it a great place to live: four years on Centennial’s Budget Committee (I know our city’s finances inside and out); president of Cunningham Fire Protection District (a publicly elected position); many years as a director on my HOA, and more. I am a longtime small business owner and entrepreneur (www.adigo.com).

Other than my college years, I have been a resident of what is now Centennial since 1979. I graduated from Smoky Hill High School and have two degrees from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (M.I.T.), electrical engineering and business. What do you think is the most important issue facing Centennial and how will you approach it if elected? The most important issue facing Centennial is our need for continued infrastructure maintenance and development while maintaining financial discipline. As a member of CentenWhelan nial’s Budget Committee, I can say with authority that the city’s finances are relatively healthy. However, we have a significant amount of deferred maintenance (e.g. fixing potholes). 2013 was the first year in quite some time that the city’s annual road maintenance program was “fully funded.” Additionally, there are significant infrastructure improvements needed throughout the city. A great example is the need to widen Arapahoe Road between Waco and Himalaya (i.e. the two-lane section just west of Grandview High.) That stretch of road is dangerous for us and our children, and its widening is long overdue, but it will not be cheap. The only way to get all of this done is to be smart, efficient, and maintain a strong financial discipline with our precious tax dollars.

Turner says city should prioritize among most important issues By George Lurie

glurie@ ourcoloradonews.com William Turner is running for the District 4 council seat currently held by Ron Weidmann, who is term-limited. His opponents in the race are John Allen Tate and Charles Whelan. Turner, an Ohio native, served in the Navy for 21 years and is married with four children. A program security manager for Ball Aerospace, he has a bachelor’s degree in behavioral science from Metro State College and is currently pursuing a master’s degree in education from Colorado State University.

has lived in Centennial for three years. This is his first run for political office. Why are you seeking this office? Running for Centennial City Council affords me the opportunity to voice the concerns and repreTurner sent the interest of the citizens of Centennial and the members of my community. Participating in the decision-making process to assist in securing and maintaining Centennial’s competitive advantage

through fiscal accountability is very important to me. What makes you the best person for the job? One has to be willing to listen effectively to the concerns of the citizens and to put in that extra time and research to achieve positive results. Not being afraid to ask the hard questions nor make the difficult decisions. I’m just that person who is willing to go that extra mile to work hard for the citizens of Centennial and bring a fresh perspective to the table. What do you think is the most important issue facing Centennial and how will

you approach it if elected? A difficult process is determining one single issue facing Centennial as the most important. Members of city council must first be able to prioritize these matters based on budgetary constraints and at the same time weigh the concerns of its citizens equally. When elected, I would work with other members of council along with the city manager to develop that prioritization focusing on maintaining the city’s infrastructure (roads, bridges and transportation); new business development and clientele and foster in the city’s demographics.

An interest in fibers developed. A career in international trade and consultation with cross-cultural businesses followed and finally fizzled. She enrolled at the former Skyloom Fibers in Denver and learned to weave. She teaches at Recycled Lamb in Lakewood, at Lakewood’s Washington Heights Art Center and for the Wednesday Weavers, who meet at Augustana Lutheran Church. She also dyes yarn for Recycled Lamb and Treenway silks. She started weaving on a rigid heddle loom and graduated to a four-shaft loom, then to a 10-shaft Macomber — plus eight others in her studio. “There is a refuge in making things,” Bliss said. Meet her and other fine craftspeople at the Fiber Arts Sale. And perhaps score the perfect gift for someone near and dear — or for yourself.

‘Mestizo’ opens at Su Teatro Concert/play based on album from 1973 By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ ourcoloradonews.com In Denver, we were well aware of the Chicano civil rights movement, so the concert/play inspired by singer/songwriter Daniel Valdez’s album “Mestizo” should be of interest to many local theater lovers.

LIBRA (Sept 23 to Oct 22) Watch that you don’t take on more than you can handle when offering to help someone with a personal problem. There might be hidden factors you weren’t told about. SCORPIO (Oct 23 to Nov 21) That major move you’ve been considering could come sooner than you expected. Make sure you’ll be ready with the facts you need when decision time arrives. SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 to Dec 21) Languishing relationships can benefit from a break in routine. Get out of the rut and do something new and maybe more than a little unpredictable this weekend. CAPRICORN (Dec 22 to Jan 19) Although you don’t think of yourself as a role model, your ability to make a tough decision at this time sets an example for others, who admire your courage. AQUARIUS (Jan 20 to Feb 18) You need to move any remaining obstacles out of your way before you can take on a new challenge. Seek advice from close, trusted friends and associates. PISCES (Feb 19 to Mar 20) A career change appears increasingly likely to happen during the next several weeks. It’s a good idea to start now to prepare, so you can be ready to make the move when the time comes. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a strong sense of obligation to justice, which inspires others to follow your example and do the right thing. (c) 2013 King Features Synd., Inc.

Centennial Citizen 21

October 18, 2013

‘Merrily’ at the movies “Merrily We Roll Along” by Stephen Sondheim and George Furth will be shown in a CinemaLive production at the Highlands Ranch 24, 103 Centennial Blvd., Highlands Ranch and Greenwood Plaza 12 theater, 8141 E. Arapahoe Road, at 7 p.m. Oct 23. Originally written in 1981 and not well-received, revived Off Broadway in 1994, this London West End revival production, directed by Olivier Award winner Maria Friedman, was a major hit in 2012, earning five stars from British critics. It was filmed at the Harold Pinter Theatre in London. The story starts in 1980 and travels backwards in time through the lives of three friends. The film includes 20 minutes of backstage interviews with cast, crew and guests.

Frame it!

The Depot Art Gallery will host a Framing Symposium at Littleton’s Bemis Library, 6014 S. Datura St., at 9:15 a.m. Oct. 21. When one listens to jurors talk about exhibits, they often mention the “presentation of a piece:” i.e. framing — and they are often critical. The Littleton Fine Arts Guild has enlisted local artists and framers to talk about how to frame twodimensional art — from basic techniques for beginners to new ideas for experienced artists. Discussion will look at photographs, oil paintings, and other framed media. Free and open to the public.

Fielder photos

The Highlands Ranch Historical Society will enjoy a multimedia show by photographer John Fielder at 7 p.m. Oct. 23 at the Southridge Recreation Center, 4800 MacArthur Ranch Rd., Highlands Ranch. (Note that this is not on the usual Monday night.) Fielder will present his newest book about “Denver Mountain Parks: 100 Years of the Magnificent Dream” and “Explore the Africa that No Group Tour

Book eyes small town in wartime Centennial writer spent girlhood in Nebraska By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com While Centennial writer Nancy Peterson says “Not to Be Forgiven” is not really her personal story, she did grow up in Scottsbluff, Neb. (a first grader when Pearl Harbor was attacked), and wanted to create a picture of a small town and its response to the war. “I wanted readers to know how people sacrificed and worked together,” she said. “I wanted to recreate that time — the small town, with soldiers on the street.” Although she had moved away, she and her husband, also a native, moved back to Scottsbluff when their three sons were teens and “got to talking.” Gradually the idea formed for this book. She said she saw the title phrase for her book “out in the country” on a fence and it stayed with her. After majoring in English and journalism at the University of Nebraska, as a young mother she began freelancing. “I wanted something to do at home,”

she recalls. Her first published piece was a short story in a church magazine in 1968. The family lived near Arapahoe Road and she wrote for the Englewood Herald and Aurora Sentinel, the Empire magazine and other regional and national magazines. “I did a lot of traveling on the Great Plains.” Her previous historic book titles include “Walking in Two Worlds,” “People of the Moonshell” (a history of the South Platte River and people who lived near it), “People of the Troubled Water” and “People of the Old Missury.” The novel centers on a family. A young girl, Sis, is the narrator, and the story unfolds through her eyes. Her father is editor of the local newspaper, always trying to stay on top of developing local stories in a time before cell phones and computers. Peterson talked with editors of the Englewood Herald and Littleton Independent about how they produced the news in the period. Sis’ adored older brother enlists and writes from the war front, recalling the horrors he witnesses. Her mother adds reporting duties to her role as a homemaker. Peterson said some details are from her childhood, such as growing a Victory Gar-

den, joining a community effort to harvest the potato crop, recycling cans, 25-cent savings stamps. She spoke of prejudice against a Japanese-American family who ran a café and a German family’s grocery, where a window was broken. And there was a German prisoner of war camp at Scottsbluff, which also plays a part in her story. The narrative is well crafted and details incidents such as the blackout drill, held in many locations across the U.S., in preparation for possible bombing attacks, dilemmas over rationing — could the family get enough gas to drive to Denver for a reunion with the brother before he shipped out? How could Sis make her worn-out shoes last until she had a ration coupon for another pair? In conclusion, the book sends out a strong message about what happens when people learn to hate. “It’s real,” Peterson said. Her book is available at her website, nancympeterson.com and through Amazon and Barnes and Noble, she said. Libraries are ordering it. On Nov. 10, she and author Barbara Wright will speak at the Denver Women’s Press Club, 1325 S. Logan, about writing historical novels.

movies, Spirits of Suspicion finds Dick and Dora Charles invited to a séance at the Top Hat Club, owned by Dick’ s old friend Bunny. Bunny wants to contact her murdered husband, Rocky - a gangster who supposedly hid a million dollars somewhere in the club. But the séance goes awry as a female patron of the club becomes possessed by both Rocky and the female singer who was murdered along with him. Dick and Dora face off to see who can be the first to solve Rocky’s murder and where the missing million dollars are in this 1940s

e ‘Brothers’

Square-dance group enters its 75th year

opens in Lone Tree Owners ‘pulled out all stops’ on bar and grill

Marc and Eric Fortney went all out during construction of their first freestanding restaurant. On Oct. 10, they opened the doors to the It’s Brothers Bar & Grill in Lone Tree, the 17th restaurant in the family-owned chain. “We pulled out all the stops,” Marc Fortney said. “A lot of planning went into this.” Though the two-story, sportsthemed restaurant opened during football season, its setup is strongly skewed toward summer. Ground- and upper-level patios illuminated by strung lights are dotted with standing heaters, and a large outdoor fireplace anchors the main-floor outdoor area. Four bocce courts open for free play flank the building’s north side. The outdoor emphasis not only expands the restaurant’s 400-plus seating capacity, it’s a visual lure to passersby on Quebec Street. The site formerly was home to the Claim Jumper, a restaurant known for its oversized portions that closed in late 2010. Marc Fortney, the extroverted face of the company, said he

first considered renovating the original space. “I thought it was a spectacular building for a country-western bar,” he said. “It would have cost more to retrofit than to build.” It’s Brothers is designed as a restaurant, sports bar and nightclub. “We want to be a sports bar, but we also want to be more than that,” Marc Fortney said. “As the night goes on, you’re going to hear the music ramp up. If people want to shake a little bit, we’ve got a dance floor.” Wisconsin natives Marc and Eric Fortney opened their first bar in the college town of LaCrosse, Wis. in 1990. Marc Fortney points to their selfemployed parents as the source of their entrepreneurial spirit, but said the brothers knew their age could be a hindrance. At the time of that first opening, the two were 26 and 23. “When we looked at this first bar in LaCrosse, we knew we needed credibility in the marketplace because we were so young,” Marc Fortney said.

His parents suggested not only the name “Brothers,” but added “Est. 1967” to the moniker. It’s not the year the company started, but the year Eric Fortney was born and the lifelong partnership began. Marc Fortney takes pride in the company’s scratch kitchens and a menu designed to change with the seasons. Guests at the restaurant’s grand opening gave the city’s newest restaurant positive reviews. “I think it’s amazing,” said Lone Tree resident Michelle Murphy. “It’s exactly what we needed here. You can bring your family here during the day and come back with your friends evenings and weekends.” “This is my new place,” said Lone Tree resident Ray Russell. Marc Fortney sees the proximity of LoDo’s, across Quebec Street, as more boon than threat. “Car lots put themselves right next to each other to give people options,” he said. “We want to provide more options.”

Founded in the summer of 1939, the Kilowatt Eights are the oldest active square dance club in the country and still do-si-doing with regular dances at the Malley Senior Center in Englewood, where the group just held its 74th anniversary dance on Oct. 4.

Bruins sweep to tennis title Cherry Creek boys win 39th championship in 43 years By Jim Benton

jbenton@ourcoloradonews.com Decades ago Cherry Creek’s boys tennis team was nicknamed The Red Train Express. Years have passed and not many people use the tag to identify the Bruins any longer, but Cherry Creek continues to dominate Colorado high school boys tennis. The Bruins set a state tournament record with 98 points and swept all seven finals matches in capturing the Class 5A boys state tennis championship in the tournament held Oct. 10-12 at Gates Tennis Center in Denver. It was the third consecutive state title for the Bruins and the 39th in the past 43 years. It marked the first time in 15 seasons that a team won all seven championship matches, and the Bruins were the last team to do

that in the 1998 tournament. “It’s been quite a run,” said Cherry Creek coach Art Quinn. Fairview, which trailed Creek 77-69 going into the final day, lost five of seven head-to-head finals matches to the Bruins. The Knights collected four points in playback matches and wound up in second place with 73 points. Mountain Vista finished third with 46 points, the highest finish ever for a Highlands Ranch team in the state tournament. Chaparral was honored with the sportsmanship award. Quinn, an assistant coach for the past six seasons, took over the head coaching reins at Creek in late August from Kirk Price who was placed on an indefinite leave. “So many things happened since the beginning of the year,” recalled Quinn. “My hat’s off to the seniors that were leaders, the freshman who provided energy and everyone in between from parents, players and coaches. “It’s a special group of kids. This was my

first year as head coach. It’s a large, wonderful freshman class that will learn to be leaders. It’s the beginning of something great.” Eleven Creek players won first-place medals and added their names to the Bruins’ long list of individual state champions. In 43 years of state tennis competition, Cherry Creek has crowned 303 individual state champions. The 2013 state champions from Creek were senior Zach Fryer at No. 1 singles, senior Connor McPherson at No. 2 singles and freshman Ethan Hillis at No. 3 singles. Junior Harshil Dwivedi and senior Jake Miller captured the No. 1 doubles title while sophomore Erin Norwood and senior Matt Gross were the No. 2 doubles champs. Junior Teller Hoskins and senior Ben Schlichting won at No. 3 doubles and the freshman duo of Jacob Bendaline and Wyatt Dale earned the No. 4 doubles first place medal. Fryer, who played in USTA national events last season, won his third state championship and this season at No. 1 singles with a 6-4, 6-4 triumph over Fairview’s

Ignatius Castelino. “I love the atmosphere here, and then to help the team as well,” said Fryer. “It’s a lot different than playing USTA tournaments because it’s all individual. Here you have your team behind you and supporting you and you also want to win for your team because you don’t want to let them down.” Fryer, who took a medical timeout between sets to have his ankle wrapped, fell behind 2-1 in the second set but used accurate forehand shots and won service in the 10th game to win the match. “I remember from playing him in a match earlier in the season I made a lot of shots and eventually I wore him down and he started making a few more errors,” added Fryer. “That was exactly where I wanted to be, serving it out. I tried to make a lot of first serves to put some pressure on him.” McPherson defeated Mountain Vista freshman Ben Antonsen, 6-1, 6-2, to secure his fourth state title. The left-hander won at Bruins continues on Page 26

Lions fall to Falcons on the pitch Highlands Ranch edges Littleton 2-0 in league match By Tom Munds

tmunds@ourcoloradonews.com Highlands Ranch posted a 2-0 win over Littleton in the Oct. 12 Continental League soccer game that had an impact on both teams seek to secure playoff berths. “This game was important to us after the loss to Rock Canyon so we can again claim a top spot in the league standings,” Falcons coach Danny Main said after his team posted the win. “Now we are looking to finish second in the league, which carries a high seed in the playoffs.” Highlands Ranch now is tied with Ponderosa for second place in the league. The Falcons took on Mountain Vista Oct. 15 at Shea Stadium, and close out the regular season on the road Oct. 17 at Legacy Stadium against Eaglecrest. The Littleton coach said the loss leaves the Lions a game short of being assured of making the playoffs with two games to play. “This was a tough game for us to lose,” Lions coach Pedja Vajzovic said after the game. “We played hard and it wasn’t our night. Now we face the need to win one of

our last two games to secure a decent seed in the playoffs.” Littleton took the field Oct. 15 against Douglas County and faced Chaparral Oct. 17. Both games will be played at Littleton Public School Stadium. The teams played the Oct. 12 game at a racehorse pace, pushing the ball up and down the field, seeking an opening to put a shot on the net. Highlands Ranch broke the scoreless tie in the first half when the Falcons pressed the attack and John Schaffer put the ball in the net past a diving Littleton goalie Edgar Cervantes. Littleton’s attack produced openings and the Lions took the shots, but most of the shots sailed wide of the mark or over the goal. Just under two minutes into the second half, the Falcons pushed an attack. The initial shot on goal was deflected away from the net by Lions goalie Cervantes. However, Schaffer moved in on the deflection and drilled it into the upper right corner of the goal to make the score 2-0. A trio of Falcons, Andrew Skiles, Roberto Valazquez and Kyle Diethorn, each got credit for assists. “Our team played well tonight,” Falcons Lions continues on Page 26

Vista, Rock Canyon triumph in cross country League championships held at Redstone Park By Jim Benton

jbenton@ourcoloradonews.com Mountain Vista’s boys and the girls from Rock Canyon ran away with the team titles in the Continental League cross country championships Oct. 9 at Redstone Park. Paced by a one-two finish by Connor Weaver and Andrew Walton, the Mountain Vista boys had five runners finish in the top 10 and captured the league title. The Golden Eagles, the defending Class 5A state champions, had 26 points, with Rock Canyon finishing second in the team standings with 102 points, followed by Chaparral with 104 points. Rock Canyon senior Phoebe Schneider was first in the girls varsity race as the Jaguars placed three in the top 10 to win the team title with 66 points. Mountain Vista was the runner-up with 79 points and Heritage was third with 95 points. The course had a 100-meter hill that runners had to ascend twice, which was a benefit for Weaver who crossed the finish line at Shea Stadium 22 seconds ahead of Walton. “I’m kind of a hill guy so doing that hill twice was to my advantage,” he explained. “I took the lead three-quarters of a mile into the race. “I wasn’t expecting to win by that much. I felt like there was a person just a few steps behind me the whole race. So I was running worried. When I came in and didn’t see anybody close to me I was surprised.” Weaver, a senior, noticed a time of 16:54. “It was one of my better races being a league championship race,” said Weaver. “I wanted to have a good race. I just wasn’t expecting the course to run that slow. “Time-wise it might not have been my best race, but all things considered it was a good effort. State is what matters. I’ll be ready at state to challenge some people.” Schneider’s 19:33 effort made her the league champion. “I started out at a pretty good pace,” she explained. “I stayed with a couple girls for the first mile and coming around the second loop, I took the lead. At the end I felt really good and took off and slowly started picking up until the finish. “I’ve been pretty strong this year and my races in general have been improving one upon another. To be called a league champion is something I’ve been working towards since my freshman year. This was more of a racecourse than a time course. The place was more significant than the time. I’ve made some big strides and improvements this year and it will be fun to see how the big races go.” Regional competition will be held Oct. 17-19 at various state venues, with the Class 5A state championships set for Oct. 26 at Norris Penrose Events Center in Colorado Springs. “It was fun to see two guys go first and second in the same race and three other guys right behind them,” Mountain Vista coach Jonathan Dalby said of the Golden Eagles’ Continental League championship race. “We need to get a strong effort from the sixth and seventh guys in the state meet and they are capable. We’ll go in and hope to give it a good shot.” Rock Canyon coach Dan Davies was pleased how his girls and boys teams performed in the Continental League meet and had high praise for Mountain Vista’s boys team. “We feel this is definitely our best girls team ever at Rock Canyon,” said Davies. “We don’t want to get too far ahead of ourselves. We definitely want to get in there and battle Pine Creek and Vista in the regionals. I’m proud of our guys. We were second in the league meet and we’ll take that any day going against the Mountain Vista boys. In my opinion, they

coach Main said after the game. “All aspects of our play were on target in this game. Our attack was crisp, the midfield played well and, as it has all season, our defense was solid.” Jeff Ingell is the Falcon’s center fullback on the defensive line. “This is my normal position and I like it back there because I am the last line of defense in front of the goalie,” he said. “Also, as center fullback, I can see the whole field and be a leader as I help direct our play. I have been playing soccer since I was 4 or 5 and this is my favorite position.” Ingell keeps busy, as he is a kicker for the football season and he plays basketball, but he added that soccer is his favorite sport. The Lions coach said it wasn’t a good night for his team. “They are a very good team but while we played hard, we weren’t organized and really didn’t play smart soccer,” Vajzovic said after the game. “We have the talent and I believe we can do what we need to do to get an automatic seed in the playoffs. Like I told the players, I want to see them succeed, but it is up to them to play smart soccer in these next two games so we get the wins we need to assure we can continue our season into the playoffs.”

Horse Liniment Erases Pain

HIALEAH, FL — An ingredient often used to treat inflammation in racehorse legs, is now back on the market in its original doctor recommended formula. According to a national drug survey, the formula at one time became so popular that it rose to the top of pharmacy sales for topical pain relievers. But the company marketing the product at the time changed the formula and sales plummeted. The inventor of the original formula has brought it back under the trade name ARTH ARREST and says it can relieve pain for millions. Now at:

Considered a medical miracle by some, ARTH ARREST works by a dual mechanism whereby one ingredient relieves pain immediately, while a second ingredient seeks out and destroys the pain messenger signal before it can be sent to the brain. ARTH ARREST formula is useful in the treatment of painful disorders ranging from minor aches and pains to more serious conditions such as arthritis, bursitis. tendonitis and more. ARTH ARREST is available in a convenient rollon applicator at pharmacies without a prescription or call 1-877-581-1502 1-800-339-3301 or visit www.artharrest.com.

While I’ve been mayor, the city has hired a new city manager who shares Centennial’s belief in smart government; realigned staff and contracting to increase efficiency; and extended our Public Works contract for five years at a savings of $1 million while increasing service levels such as an additional 93 miles of routine snow plowing in Centennial. I promoted the formation of the Centennial Senior Commission and Business Technical Advisory Group to increase input to city policy-making. I’m dedicated to looking out for your interests and our city. What do you think is

the most important issue facing Centennial and how will you approach it if elected? Centennial may only be 13 years old, but its places and people average a bit closer to middle age. Why should that matter? Well, with age comes more upkeep and the need to plan for the future. To ensure that Centennial continues to thrive, we need to take care of roads that need more maintenance, keep our neighborhoods attractive to new buyers, retain and attract businesses with good jobs and ensure those who want to age in place have that ability. While we may anticipate changes in our city, outreach and partnerships with the community, staff research and expertise, and innovation through our contractors can provide us with the vision and tools to keep Centennial in the lead. A vibrant city doesn’t just happen — it is the result of good planning and hard work. I’m ready to get to work!

Common Sense group digging in Hoped-for political party has focus on collaboration By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@ourcoloradonews.com The grassroots political party envisioned by John Brackney and Brian Vogt is edging toward becoming more visible. “I’m ready for something to happen,” said Andrew Graham, a member of Littleton’s planning board. “I’m ready to pick an issue, I’m ready to pick a person, I’m ready to pick a fight.” Longtime friends and cohorts, Brackney succeeded Vogt as the president of the South Metro Denver Chamber of Commerce, where he remains today. Vogt went on to head up Denver Botanic Gardens. But they stress that this group, Common Sense

Citizens, is not a chamber effort, but was born of their personal frustration with the debilitating effects of today’s extreme polarization in politics. Joining them as organizers are Graham, John Vachalek and Patrick Pratt. “Instead of sending problem-solvers and negotiators to Washington, we often send adherents and pledge-signers, people who refuse to compromise for fear that they will lose the support they need to keep a job that has become less respected and less impactful,” they write on their Meetup page. “It is no wonder we are in a mess, one which will grind the genius of America into mediocrity.” Written in January, that comment portends the federal government shutdown, a hot topic during the group’s Oct. 12 meeting at the Littleton Center. Members were unified in their dismay, using words like shameful, re-

pulsive and tired. “I think it illustrates the problem we have with society as a whole,” said Paul Schauer, a former Republican state legislator. “You reach an impasse. It’s a matter of how do we get to the greatest good for the greater number. I have the same problem with the far right as I have with the far left. They want control of your life on their terms.” Graham agreed, saying Washington needs more independent thinkers. “I think that person would be the most powerful person in Washington, if his vote was beholden to no one except his own conscience,” he said. Brackney said Common Sense needs to start gearing up for the 2014 elections now, identifying core values and pushing them out to the public via e-books, TED videos or whatever medium they decide works best.

sion.” The city itself is big, but the government itself should remain small. That means keeping spending to a minimum, focus on the necessary and what benefits the citizens. Keep ordinances and regulations to a minimum, again, only what benefits the citizens. Have accessibility and excellent communication within the city council and citizens. We need to keep the citizens informed of what is going on and stay connected. BIG government doesn’t always mean size, it means the focus of that said government and its inaccessibility.
