Denver Public Schools is celebrating a double-digit jump from the beginning to the end of last school year in the percentage of its youngest students who are reading on grade level. In the fall of 2016, 50 percent of Denver kindergarten through third-grade students who took the most commonly used reading test, called Istation, scored at grade level or above, according to district statistics. By the spring of 2017, that number had increased to 67 percent. Denver schools can choose from four tests to measure students’ reading ability. The majority — 80 percent — use Istation, officials said. Taking into account results from all four tests, the number of students reading on grade level in the fall compared to the spring increased by a more modest 14 percentage points, district statistics show. Superintendent Tom Boasberg attributed the progress to a $3.8 million investment last year in early literacy, the bulk of which paid for a weeklong summer teacher training session that for the first SEE READING, P2

City passes immigrant protections White House has threatened to revoke money from what it considers sanctuary cities ASSOCIATED PRESS

Denver’s City Council on Aug. 28 approved an ordinance aimed at protecting immigrants amid White House threats to revoke federal money from so-called sanctuary cities — but the effort falls short of legal challenges to those threats by Chicago, San Francisco and other cities. Denver’s ordinance, which passed on a 10-0 vote, largely sets into law what is current practice. It’s designed to reassure the city’s immigrants while not formally declaring Colorado’s capital a sanctuary city.

President Donald Trump has made it a top priority to revoke federal dollars from so-called sanctuary cities, broadly defined as places that limit cooperation with federal immigration authorities. Trump says he believes such cities and counties are providing a haven for criminal activity. Chicago has filed a federal lawsuit targeting new conditions for the federal aid. Lawsuits over constitutional concerns also have been filed in San Francisco, Seattle and other cities. Mayor Michael Hancock and city councilors say Denver’s ordinance formalizes its current practice of prohibiting city employees from collecting information on immigration status and sharing it with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. It also bars local officers from immigration enforcement and ICE agents from access to jail inmates without a warrant. Denver currently allows ICE agents to interview inmates at the Denver County Jail.

Hancock has insisted that any measure address immigrants’ fears of ICE detention at courthouses or of making themselves vulnerable to arrest by cooperating with city police. The mayor issued a statement after the vote praising the council. “Tonight, with the unanimous vote by City Council, Denver is sending a clear and resolute message to our community that we stand with the immigrant and refugee communities and are committed to remaining a city that is safe and welcoming for all,’’ Hancock said. “... Local government’s ability to protect and serve all of our people is enhanced when community members feel safe coming forward as either a victim of or a witness to a crime, regardless of their legal status.” The ordinance notes that immigrants are less likely to report emergencies or testify or appear in court. Denver does notify ICE before releasing certain inmates. But ICE

Initiatives aimed at strengthening young students’ reading skills will continue to be funded this year and in the future by money set aside from a $56.6 million tax increase, or mill levy override, passed by Denver voters in November. Standing in front of a classroom

book display at Schmitt Elementary, a southwest Denver turnaround school that saw a 25 percentagepoint increase in the number of students reading on grade level from the fall to the spring last year, Boasberg credited the DPS school board with making a big — and successful — bet on early literacy. Boasberg said that while it’s to be expected that students’ reading skills would improve over the course of the school year districtwide, “we’ve never seen gains like that.” The results are similar to those seen on the most recent state standardized tests, which are given to students in grades 3 through 9. More Denver third-graders scored at grade level in literacy in 201617 (38 percent) than in 2015-16 (32 percent). The DPS school board has set an ambitious goal that 80 percent of Denver third-graders will be reading and writing at or above grade level by 2020. Research has shown that students who don’t meet that goal are four times more likely to drop out of high school. A state law passed in 2012 called the READ Act requires schools to test students in kindergarten through third grade to identify struggling readers. The schools create special plans to help those students improve using a list of state-approved approaches. The state provides extra money for students who score significantly below grade level, the lowest of three categories, and are thus identified as having a “significant reading deficiency.” Last year, schools got an additional $847 per student. Students who score in the other two categories — below grade level, and at grade level or above — don’t get extra state funding. In 2012-13, the first year READ

wants at least 48 hours’ notice, and some critics say Denver’s sheriff ’s department has fallen fall short. Last year, the county jail gave ICE only 25 minutes’ notice before releasing Ever Valles, a 19-year-old who had been held on an auto theft charge. ICE had flagged Valles as a Mexican national and gang member. After his release, Valles was involved in a fatal shooting at a Denver light rail station. U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions criticized Denver’s actions in the case. Sessions has said cities must allow ICE agents into jails for interviews and provide the agency with at least 48 hours’ notice before releasing inmates or risk losing law enforcement grants from the Justice Department. Last year, Denver received about $690,000 in grants from the program. Denver’s ordinance still allows the jail to notify ICE of inmate releases, but it includes language that requires that inmates be advised of their rights before.

Act data is available, 26 percent of Denver kindergarten through third-graders were identified as having significant reading deficiencies, according to state statistics. By 2015-16, that number had dropped to 19 percent. However, disaggregated state statistics show the percentages were higher among low-income and special education students, students of color and English language learners. In 2016-17, a majority of DPS schools switched from using the Developmental Reading Assessment tests to using the Istation tests. Because of that, DPS officials said it’s not possible to compare within-year gains from 2016-17 to within-year gains from previous years. The state hasn’t yet published early literacy data from 2016-17; officials said it won’t be available until the spring. But numbers provided by DPS show that just 15 percent of kindergarten through third-grade students who took Istation tests were identified as having significant reading deficiencies at the end of the school year. That’s a lower percentage than in previous years, but it doesn’t include results from all of the tests. DPS officials also noted that the Istation tests are different than the previous DRA tests. In a classroom at Schmitt Elementary, with books including “Where the Wild Things Are” propped up behind her, dean of instruction Carli Shock recalled the reaction of one of her young students when he scored at grade level, denoted by the color green, on his Istation test. “He said, ‘Is there something higher than green? Because if there is, that’s what I want to be,’” she recalled. “I learned a valuable lesson: early success fosters future success.”

“Whiskers wiggle. Eyes grow bright. Mouse peeks out. The canyon’s white. Snow — she blinks. She’ll grind dried corn. Blue corn soup will keep her warm.” — Caroline Stutson. Wee Abuelita mouse concocts a hearty Southwestern soup/sopa which will taste delicious on a cold day — just enough for one small mouse — but her neighbors smell that aromatic pinon smoke drifting on the breeze … “Someone’s cooking something good.” Soon, rabbit, chipmunk and bear are at her door. But she doesn’t have enough! She suggests they all bring food to Bear’s house and combine forces. A delicious “Friendship Stew” is the result. Littleton children’s book author/ storyteller Caroline Stutson had submitted two more of her charming poetic tales for little people to publishers before she passed away in 2015. Sleeping Bear Press in Michigan has just released “Blue Corn Soup,” with especially appealing illustrations by Teri Weidner of New Hampshire. And, there is a Blue Corn Soup recipe at the back, a hearty one we’ll want to test when the snow flies in

Colorado again, as we, hopefully, share the new book with special small relatives and friends. Stutson had published 10 books for young children. Five are still in print: the new one plus “Cat’s Night Out,” “Mountain Meadow 123,” “By the Light of the Halloween Moon” and “Mama Loves You.” The new title is available locally at Tattered Cover and Bookies, according to Al Stutson, her husband of 50-plus years. For many years, Caroline Stutson read and told stories at schools, libraries, and bookstores. She also offered some workshop sessions on creating children’s literature and was active in the Littleton Spellbinders and a board member of the Littleton Friends of the Library/Museum. Stutson’s grandson Alec (her writing apprentice) added a note on the back inside end sheet: “I like to think that if Caroline could have dedicated this book, it would have been shared three ways, just like “Friendship Stew.” First, to her beloved pets. She loved animals from her earliest days on Earth. Second, to her family, for encouraging her chronic case of rhyming disease. And lastly to you. She loved to tell stories, but she loved the people who heard them even more she loved that most of all.”

Denver Bulldogs take football down under Aussie Rules team one of best in league BY CLARKE READER CREADER@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

There was a lot about Melbourne, Australia, that Troy Kirk missed when he moved to Colorado years ago with his wife — family, friends and football. “I missed everything about the sport when I moved here but an old coach had told me there was an amateur league over here,” Kirk remembers. “I contacted the boys out here, and the rest is history.” The boys he’s referring to are the Denver Bulldogs, Colorado’s only Australian Football club. The club has a men’s division one team, men’s division four team, and a women’s team, and was founded in 1997 — just a year after the United States Australian Football League (USAFL) was founded. “Aussie Rules Football is very different to American Football, and in terms of movement is more like soccer or basketball, where the movement can be 360 degrees,” said Casey Robertson, co-coach of the Bulldogs’ division one team. “If someone wants to watch a continuous game, unlike American Football, there is a

Kicks can be anywhere from 10 yards to about 60 yards in length, but players can also move the football with what is called a “hand ball,” Robertson explained. A hand ball is when one player punches the ball to a teammate. Teams accumulate points by kicking a goal or a point. The goals are four upright posts: two tall posts in the middle and a shorter post on either side of the large posts. A team scores a goal (worth six points) when they kick the ball between the two tall posts. A point (worth a single point) is when a team kicks the ball between one of the tall posts and one of the short posts. “It’s a mix of all American sports — if you take baseball, soccer, basketball, ultimate Frisbee, hockey, SEE BULLDOGS, P5

The Denver Bulldogs Aussie Rules Football club’s season runs through mid-October, which allows plenty of time for people to check out the sport that one player describes as “a game of hot-potato that looks like chaos.” PHOTO COURTESY OF TROY KIRK teammates,” Vanica said. “The football club sports culture in Australia is also unique where entire communities and towns will revolve around the football club. It’s very special.” With at least two months of games left, Kirk hopes more people will come out and see what Aussie Rules is all about. “Australian Football is one of the most fast paced, exciting games in the world,” he said. “People will fall in love after one game.”

running, and football, put it in a blender, you would have Australian Rules football,” said Andy Vanica, another member of the Bulldogs. “It’s very different from NFL as there are no pads, the field is round, and there are no set downs. It is often described as a game of hot-potato that looks like chaos.” The USAFL is home to about 39 teams from all over the county, and the season usually runs from late May to mid-October. In the 20 years since the club’s founding, the men’s team has won eight national championships, and the women’s team has won six, making the Bulldogs one of the most successful teams in the league, Kirk said. One of the best things about the sport, according to the players, is the openness of the club and the culture if fosters. Club members come from all over the Denver Metro Area and beyond. Training sessions and games are held at Washington Heights Park, 6375 W. 1st Ave. in Lakewood, and at Denver City Park, 2001 Colorado Boulevard, on Saturdays. Not only are people encouraged to watch the training sessions, but they can participate if interested. “I wish more people knew how much fun competing is, and the club is in general,” Robertson said. “The fact that the sport is full contact is loved by our American players as many of them have not played a full contact sport since high school or college. Our club is very welcoming to everyone, whether you are an athlete or not, a good player or not, experienced or inexperienced, young or old. If you just want to be part of the club off the field then we are happy to have you.” For Kirk, Robertson and Vanica, football has given them another family and community to be a part of. “It’s a very tough game, both physically and mentally, and there is a mutual respect that develops among

ut of necessity, my college syllabi expanded by the month, as new infractions were coming in all the time. My first syllabus, in 1973, asked for no smoking, and that was about it. By the end (2003), the list went on for about six pages. No automatic weapons. No shouting, “I am the Messiah.” And no cellphone calls. Cellphones weren’t on the market in 1973 — that’s why they weren’t on the list back then. Hard to believe now — isn’t it? — that there was a time before mobile devices? Unless you were Dick Tracy. Tracy used

to talk to his wrist. Ironically, the first mobile phone call was made in 1973. On April 3, 1973, Martin Cooper, a senior engineer at Motorola, “called a rival company and informed them he was speaking on a mobile phone (knowyourmobile. com),” albeit one about the size of a hiking boot. It’s untrue that he said, “What’s the frequency, Kenneth?,” or asked for a medium, hand-tossed with everything. While Cooper was on the phone, he reached for his coffee, misjudged the handle, and dropped and broke the cup. It was the first instance of what is now referred to

as “distracted talking.” Distracted talking is illegal in Honolulu. Stamford, Connecticut, may be next. I like it. Give me more. I admit that I am old-fashioned, and prefer it when people pay attention, and watch where they are going. But those days aren’t numbered. Those days are over. I can’t get from produce to frozen foods without pushing my cart defensively, because someone is making a life-changing call or a life-changing text and wandering in the aisles. SEE SMITH, P7

That is a reality and although this column always WINNING focuses on sharing WORDS a positive message, there are just sometimes when positive or flowery words are the last thing someone wants to hear. And that’s OK, because what someone who is facing devastation Michael Norton or disaster really needs is for us to be present in some way and to listen more than talk. Many of us respond quickly with a donation of money when a natural disaster or some sort of catastrophic event happens. Others in the community are “doers” and they jump into action to do manual labor, volunteer at a shelter, and offer their time without even thinking about it, it is just how they are wired.

When a distracted driver flattens a distracted talker, who is a fault? Further, who cares? According to data compiled by the Governors Highway Safety Association, pedestrian deaths in the United States have been on the rise, and the two highest years were 2015 and 2016. Statistics don’t show if the pedestrians were distracted, but Richard Retting, a former traffic safety commissioner for the New York Department of Transportation, said, “When you keep records for 40 years and see two consecutive years with the back-to-back largest, that tells you something.

Traditional photography comes back into focus Film photography is enjoying a revitalization BY SHANNA FORTIER | SFORTIER@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.CO

or Samantha Koch, film photography is a portal to the past. “You blur time with photography and film photography, especially,” said Koch, 23, who prefers to shoot with her 35 mm Minolta X-700 over her Nikon digital SLR camera. “It makes it feel more like an art form... with negatives, it’s a true photograph from the moment you press the shutter button,” Koch said of her preference for film. Koch said that moment in the darkroom of watching negatives turn into positives is magic. “You’re literally watching the paper slowly change and your image appear,” Koch said. “It’s the coolest thing.”

Koch isn’t the only 20-something who is drawn to the world of film photography. Englewood Camera in Littleton has seen a resurgence in the interest in film. This year the shop, located on Broadway, had sold 3,000 more rolls of film year-to-date than last year. “It seems like the last couple years there’s been a renewed interest (in film), especially people in their 20s and 30s,” said Bryce Cole, manager and co-owner of Englewood Camera. “I think people like putting their hands onto a roll of film and pulling it through the camera. That and the aesthetics of it.” Film gives a different look than digital, Cole said, adding that many

film shooters are buying expired film to experiment with the unpredictability of the outcome. Englewood Camera sells expired film for $3 a roll, which is cheaper than regular film sold on average for $8 — a price that is rising each year.

Covered California can help reduce the cost you pay towards high quality affordable health care. For more information, visit www.coveredca.com. Or call Covered California at 1-800-300-1506.

If either party to this action should die before the jointly held community property is divided, the language in the deed that characterizes how title is held (i.e., joint tenancy r tenants in common, or community property) will be controlling, and not the community property presumption.

FILM FROM PAGE 8

captured a moment in time. That’s why I like taking pictures with film.” Koch alternates 50-50 between her film and digital cameras. Her favorite subject when shooting with film are street scenes. “Street photography is very much a film photography thing for me,” she said. “Anything like urban decay, urban life, street life … I love taking film with that because it feels more real to me.” Mechanical artistry is another aspect Koch likes about film. “You have to know what you’re doing,” she said, spouting of the mechanics of a manual camera such as the light meter, the film speed and the patience involved. “Film is your basis to build on your technique.” That technical basis is what is taught to beginning photographers at area high schools. In Suzi Melly’s photography classes

at Horizon High School in Thornton, she teaches students the fundamentals of how light interacts with the camera before elements of design. “I think it’s important not to negate film just because digital is here,” Melly said. “It’s holistic and I do think that it gives them an understanding of how photographic images are made.” Melly teaches about 150 students throughout the school year. Her darkroom has 17 enlargers, which allow students to process and develop their film at school. Because of class time constraints and the sharing of equipment, it takes about two weeks for a student to complete the process of one image. “The process takes such a long time and some students didn’t know it was going to be so hard and time-consuming,” Melly said, adding that this is a challenge because students are used to instant gratification. Melly describes the typical photography student as someone with a sequential mind and interested in science, math and writing.

In her class, students not only learn how light interacts with the camera to create an image and how to develop and process an image, but they also have to think creatively about composition and execution of an image. “I think imagining what you hope it will be like before you take the shot is something that digital loses,” Melly said. “So that’s a gap filler. They have to adjust controls in the camera and they have to imagine what it looks like. The manual camera is often completely

foreign to them. I try to bridge the gap.” The darkroom, Melly said, gives students a rich knowledge of how a photograph is made, in a way that digital doesn’t. It’s these fundamentals that are taught to high school and college photographers with film and in the darkroom that give Koch hope that film is going to stick around. “People think it’s gonna die,” Koch said. “But I think film is an art that won’t ever go away.”

“If I was doing any better you’d think it was a frame-up,” Gaskin replies. The paint in her living room is peeling in patches, but the house is clean. Gaskin says she’d rather die than move into assisted living, and she relies on Meals on Wheels for a daily serving of nutrition — and conversation. “I enjoy meeting the people more than I enjoy the food,” she says. Asked about how funding cuts to the program, included in President Trump’s proposed 2018 budget, would affect her, she changes the subject. “Let’s not go there,” she says. The $4.1 trillion budget made headlines in March, proposing funding cuts to a number of social programs. One such reduction is a 16.2 percent cut to the Department of Health and Human Services, which reduces revenues the Denver Regional Council of Governments could distribute to Volunteers of America and its Meals on Wheels program. Congress has until the end of September to pass a federal budget, and as the deadline approaches, Dale Elliott grows anxious. “We save lives every day,” says Elliott, division director of Aging and Nutrition Services for VOA. Drivers give some clients their only social contact of the day, as well as a nutritious meal. Three or four

Dale Elliott, division director for Aging and Nutrition Services for the Volunteers of America, has a laugh while a kettle at the Denver VOA kitchen gets a wash. Elliott says the organization reaches out to private individuals and corporations for Meals on Wheels revenue, but most people don’t appreciate the need for the program until they need it for themselves or a family member.

times a year, Elliott says, they find seniors who’ve fallen and need medical help. The budget cuts would take $307,300 from Meals on Wheels’ Denver branch, eliminating services to 620 seniors in the metro area, according to Elliott. Funds for “congregate meals,” offered to mobile seniors in 30 centers in the seven counties Elliott’s office covers, would lose

$192,900 and serve 705 fewer seniors. Funding reductions would also take more than $30,000 from programs the VOA offers to provide safety-based home repairs and in-home exercise programs for seniors. But Republican businessman and former state legislator Victor Mitchell, a Castle Rock resident and candidate for governor who has been delivering meals on Fridays for about a year, believes other funding mechanisms exist for the organization to make ends meet. One solution could be “to change their model to the extent that they raise more money from private-sector dollars,” Mitchell says. “I think it’s a fantastic program and it does a lot of great things. I just believe there could be a great deal more done with funding the program with the private sector.” Meals on Wheels receives 87 percent of its funding from government sources, 9 percent from private donations and 4 percent from client contributions, Elliott says. “It’s not like we don’t do that,” he says. “The reality is we just don’t receive sufficient response.” Herb Wager, 68, began visiting the Castle Rock Senior Activity Center

after his wife died in May, and enjoys the fellowship as much as the food. He’s an unaffiliated voter and leans Republican, but like Elliott, he disagrees that private corporations or citizens can fill the gaps federal cuts would create. “It won’t get done,” the Castle Rock resident says. “It would be nice in an ideal situation, but it’s not an ideal world.” On a sunny Tuesday in August, Wager talks over baked chicken with Buzz Bowers, also of Castle Rock. Bowers began bringing his wife to the center five years ago when her Parkinson’s disease confined her to a wheelchair. It was a way for his wife to socialize as her condition worsened, and the friends they made there were a comfort for Bowers when she died last year. He says the fact that the government would consider cutting programs for seniors is evidence of “troubled times” in the United States, and he warns that decreasing funding won’t decrease the demand. “I think it’s something that needs to be increased, not decreased,” Bowers, 84, said. “Seniors are living longer, and there’s going to be a lot more of us.”
