Aging population means city heading toward major demographic change

Sex-crime victims have allies in SANE nurses Littleton Adventist among hospitals with program that helps provide healing, justice BY DAVID GILBERT DGILBERT@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Jennifer Bishara often meets people on the worst day of their lives. Bishara, a nurse, is the director of the Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner/Sexual Assault Forensic Examiner program — or SANE/SAFE — for Littleton Adventist Hospital. She’s liable to be paged any time of day or night to meet with sex-assault victims, and to conduct a thorough evidence-gathering examination that could spell the difference between locking up sexual predators or watching them walk free. In an era in which politicians, entertainers and business leaders are facing waves of accusations

BY KEVIN BEATY DENVERITE.COM

of sexual misconduct, Bishara and her colleagues want to get the word out that victims of sex assault can expect skilled and loving help from experienced professionals. “When a patient comes in this room, they’ve had something taken from them,” Bishara said, sitting in a small examination room. “We give them their dignity and control back.” The program also cares for victims of domestic violence and strangulation, and is beginning to branch out into elder abuse and child abuse. The program has its origins in the 1970s, as forensic evidence collection commenced a sea change in how sex crimes were prosecuted. Today the program, overseen by the International Association of Forensic Nurses, is present in nearly 30 hospitals statewide — and soon expanding to Parker Adventist Hospital.

Young people aren’t the only Denverites who now have free access to the city’s rec centers. Mayor Michael Hancock has announced My Denver Prime, a new program that will give residents 60 and older open access to the city’s many public pools, gyms and healthy activities. As of Dec. 6, a Denver resident over 60 need only flash a photo ID to enter and stay active. Since 2000, Colorado’s senior population (65 and older) has grown faster than its total population. As of 2015, baby boomers and millennials were nearly neck-and-neck in total population and numbers of people in the workforce (boomers actually outrank millennials on both counts). The Denver Commission on Aging estimates that 1 in 4 Denverites will be older than 60 by 2030.

Civic Center Station to reopen Dec. 17 STAFF REPORT

The newly renovated Civic Center Station will return to full service Dec. 17 after being closed for more than a year. The station is one of the Regional Transportation District’s busiest transit hubs, serving an average of 15,000 passengers a day before it closed in July 2016.

NURSES FROM PAGE 1

Treatment and options When victims arrive at the hospital, staff page a SANE/SAFE nurse, who arrives within 45 minutes, regardless of the time, 365 days a year. Nurses must obtain explicit, informed consent from victims, who then provide a detailed account of the assault, Bishara said. They are then given a meticulous physical exam, in which nurses take swabs of physical evidence on the victims’ body, and use a device called a colposcope — essentially an oversized microscope — to examine and photograph injuries. The examination also provides treatment for infection and pregnancy prevention. Victims are also connected with The Blue Bench, a Denver-based sex assault victims advocacy group, as well as other resources. Nurses ensure that each victim has a safe place to go after the examination. Victims are not required to report the assault to law enforcement, though Bishara encourages it. Regardless, the forensic evidence and statement of the victim are collected and assigned a serial number and maintained under strict security, so that if the victim decides to pursue charges at a later date, the evidence remains intact and admissible in court. SANE/SAFE nurses routinely testify in criminal cases. Victims can come in up to five days after an assault, though Bishara said the sooner the better, as evidence degrades with every passing hour. Catching offenders Evidence collected in a SANE/SAFE examination can be crucial to convicting sexual predators, said Chris

The Free MallRide and Free MetroRide are among the 18 bus routes served by the station, which is at the south end of the 16th Street Mall near the state Capitol. Temporary stops on Broadway, Colfax and Lincoln will be discontinued. The completed $31 million renovation adds a third component to a multimodal regional transit network

SAFE SPACES SANE/SAFE programs can be found around the state, from Durango to Fort Morgan, and at nine locations in the metro area, with Parker Adventist Hospital to be added in January: • Littleton Adventist Hospital • St. Anthony Hospital, Lakewood • St. Anthony Hospital, North Health, Westminster • St. Anthony Hospital, 84th Avenue location, Westminster • Denver Health Medical Center • Porter Adventist Hospital, Denver • Medical Center of Aurora • UCHealth Aurora • Children’s Hospital Colorado, Aurora Gallo, chief deputy district attorney for Colorado’s 18th Judicial District, which covers Arapahoe, Douglas, Lincoln and Elbert counties. “Robberies can be caught on camera,” said Gallo, who heads the district’s Special Victims’ Unit, which prosecutes sex crimes and crimes against children. “Homicides have bullets and guns and people willing to testify. With sex assault, however, we have a crime that occurs often between two people behind closed doors. The victim often feels shame and embarrassment. The fact that there’s a trained professional who can collect whatever small amount of evidence could exist to prosecute a sexual assault is fantastic. Without that, we’re back to circumstantial evidence and the credibility of witnesses.” Sex crimes occupy a dark niche in the world of criminal prosecution, Gallo said, because society has long held a distrust of accusers — a distrust Gallo said he sees waning. “It’s gratifying to see the support

that includes Denver International Airport and Denver Union Station. Providing a brighter, more welcoming environment while improving transit connections was a central component of the roughly 16-month-long renovation project. The station now features a glass-enclosed terminal building, nine bus bays, and a newly constructed bus concourse. The transit center’s

design also provides an open view of the State Capitol building from the 16th Street Mall. A grand opening event from 3 to 6 p.m. Dec. 15 will feature a commemoration ceremony, a preview of the facility and light refreshments.

for people who disclose they’ve been abused, and I say it’s about freakin’ time,” Gallo said. “Supporting programs like SAFE/SANE goes a long way toward furthering that goal.” Doctors, too, rely on the expertise of SANE/SAFE nurses to address an otherwise difficult scenario. “Sexual assault examinations are very time-dependent, and very timeconsuming,” said Dr. Matt Brougham, an emergency physician at Littleton Adventist and the medical director for the South Metro SANE/SAFE Program. “It can take two to three hours to do it right, and that’s very hard for emergency practitioners. Also, it’s vital that the evidence be handled properly, because a good defense attorney can find ways to get evidence thrown out. This way, there are no mistakes.” In hospitals without SANE/SAFE care, sexual-assault victims may wait for hours to be treated, Brougham said. “These are very emotionally charged situations, and people may walk if they can’t get this care,” Brougham said. “This is a great benefit to the community, and it’s hard to practice in a community where this isn’t available.”

“I have healthy boundaries,” Hobson said. “I’m good about not taking on vicarious trauma.” The nurses in the program look out for one another, and help keep each other from getting overwhelmed, said Bishara, the program director. “Detailed accounts of assaults can be traumatizing for nurses,” Bishara said. “If I have a particularly bad case, I dream about it all night. I have five kids. When I started doing this, I started feeling like everyone was a rapist. We see the worst of society — the absolute worst. It’s a sisterhood, and we help each other stay resilient.”

Impact on practitioners Seeing sexual predators thrown in prison based on the testimony of SANE/SAFE nurses is rewarding, said nurse Stacy Hobson, who has worked in the program for 10 years. “It’s greatly gratifying,” said Hobson, who has testified in more than 30 cases. “Sometimes our evidence is so impeccable they just take a plea deal.” Hobson has the distinction of being among the longer-lasting nurses in the program, which can take an emotional toll on its practitioners.

Bigger picture Bishara said that while she’s grateful to be able to help victims, she’d like to see society do a better job of addressing the causes of sexual assault rather than just treating the symptoms. “Sex assault starts with the culture,” Bishara said. “It’s about teaching sons about inappropriate touching and violence. I’ve got four sons — I tell them if a girl’s been drinking, hands off.” Sexual assault is less about sexual gratification and more about power, dominance and humiliation, Bishara said, adding that she’s beginning to see more men report assaults, too. Regardless of identity, victims can expect a safe place and a wealth of resources and options in a SANE/SAFE facility, Hobson said. “We start by believing you,” Hobson said. “I won’t force you to report. I just want you to come in.” Bishara takes issue with elements of sexual assault nomenclature. “I hate the word ‘victim,’” Bishara said. “I prefer the word ‘survivor.’ They’re being victimized out there, but here, they leave as survivors.”

Coffee is a great thing, so don’t make a stir about it

C

offee, black. Please.” “Cream and sugar?” There’s my six-word novel. I got the idea for a six-word novel from Hemingway, who got the idea from someone else. But someone else was someone no one has heard of, QUIET Hemingway gets DESPERATION so credit for it. I will share Hemingway’s sixword novel later. This isn’t a tribute to Hemingway or very, very short novels. Technically, six words are too few to be either a novel or Craig Marshall even a haiku. Smith Most novels are over 60,000 words. Herman Melville, the creep, inflicted over 200,000 on me in just one book. About a whale. This is a tribute to coffee, hot and neat, unpolluted with sugars and half

this and that. I have overheard people who make a coffee order sound like a recipe for pudding. If someone wants to meet for coffee, I am willing — if it’s coffee. Bogart never said, “Do you have any flavored coffees?” None of this means I am a tough guy. It just means that I refuse to take something profound and meaningful, and put gimcracks in it. You go ahead: toss your hair, and say, “Blonde Roast, room for sweet cream and Jujubes,” if you want to, but leave me out of it. If someone at my table orders a “single-origin Rwandan espresso,” I am out. Gone. Hand me a “craft” coffee, and I will hand it right back. I don’t want a cup of coffee that has been French-pressed. We like to turn good things, great things, into overthought things. I still drive my own car. It doesn’t drive me, park me, or ask me what I want to listen to, or if my butt is

warm enough. I know that it’s cool to be cool, and black coffee isn’t cool. You have to have some standards, and you have to have some rules. I don’t allow anyone in my house who has a hyphenated name. Or anyone who refers to carrots and celery as “veggies.” Anyone who begins a sentence with “So” is on probation. I will interrupt and say, “I’ll bet you like flavored coffees.” “Why, yes. So, how did you know?” Do I have an open mind? I did have one until I heard about Richard Nixon and Richard Carpenter and Richard Simmons. And Richard Bach. I read “Jonathan Livingston Seagull.” “Overcome space, and all we have left is Here. Overcome time, and all we have left is Now.” Pass the smelling salts and the syrup of ipecac. I don’t drink a cup of coffee. I drink six at a time. Go ahead and tell Dr.

Watts. He already knows. I used to start the day with vodka. See? It could be worse. Much worse. I’d wake on Thursday, and think it was Wednesday or Friday. Hemingway’s six-word novel went like this: “For sale: baby shoes, never worn.” Good, but mine is just as good. Mine is a reminder that we don’t listen. And we make assumptions. “Your stomach growled. You’re hungry.” “No. I just read `Jonathan Livingston Seagull.’” Coffee is a hot, brown beverage. It’s not a candy-colored, tangerine-flaked bouillon. Of course, it’s not up to me. Nothing is. Except what I nickname my houseplants. Next week: It’s not “mac and cheese.” It’s “macaroni and cheese.”

Raising the bar of optimism is courageous and contagious

H

ow are you doing?” It was a common and simple enough question to ask a friend of mine whom I had not spoken to in a while. Her response, “Better than yesterday, awesome today, and not yet quite as incredible as tomorWINNING row.” I loved it and WORDS her enthusiasm was contagious as her answer inspired me for the rest of my day, and it definitely contributed to this column. Years ago, I had written about a friend of mine, his Michael Norton name is Jerry, but his nickname has always been Nazz, an abbreviated version of his last name. Well Nazz, when asked how he was doing would always answer in the same way, “Great, couldn’t be better.” I watched him give this same response over and over again. And without fail, it always brought a smile to my face and to whoever it was that asked him how he was doing.

DENVER Since 1926

Optimism is one thing, but a commitment to optimism takes everything to a whole new level. It isn’t just a mindset, it turns our mindset into action. Both friends I mention above have always had this sense of positive thinking ever since I have met them. Their positive attitude and optimistic outlook towards life has played a huge role in my own personal development and I hope to share a little of that with you here today. When I think about some of the emails I receive, and relate their stories to the idea of a positive outlook in life, I think about the people fighting addictions, couples going through a divorce, relationships that are hanging on by a thread, people battling cancer or other health-related problems, members of our community struggling to find work, and others who are facing challenges of any kind. And I think about what I have shared in my replies to their emails as I encourage people to take personal ownership of how they choose to prepare and respond to any situation positively: • Strength: I am strong enough to fight this and I am getting stronger

And here’s the thing, many of the people who live with these qualities and characteristics have made the conscious choice to do so. That’s right, they have made the choice to live with these qualities even in the face of much adversity and overwhelming hardships and heartache.

It is life-changing for them and it is life-changing for everyone that has the pleasure and privilege of knowing them. And here’s the other part of this. Many people who I know who are thriving and not facing challenges at this time also seem to live with these very same traits. They aren’t fighting adversity, they use these same qualities to raise the bar of optimism and success.

Re:Vision receives funding for RISE Westwood project BY STAFF REPORT

Southwest Denver based Re:Vision has been chosen to receive funding through ArtPlace America’s 2017 National Creative Placemaking Fund. The nonprofit organization’s RISE Westwood is one of 23 projects that will receive funding this year. The National Creative Placemaking Fund is a national program that invests in community development projects in which artists, arts organizations and arts and culture activity

That growth means changes to the city that might not seem obvious at first glance. Think about large swaths of mature, potentially unemployed people across Denver: There will be more traffic during the day, more need for service workers and growing strain on healthcare systems. These multiple facets are reasons why the city has taken a holistic approach to pre-empting potential problems, said Maureen Spiegleman, incoming chair of the Commission on Aging. The city, she said, is gearing up to release a new survey of needs for which they interviewed every department and agency. “We believe older residents are a

work to strengthen communities. Resilient, Inclusive, Sustainable and Equitable (RISE) Westwood is an emerging community hub that addresses health, agriculture, food, education, youth and economic development. It is in the heart of the community along Morrison Road, a newly designated cultural district. Westwood has the highest percentage of single-family homes in Denver, yet also has the highest density because many families live together un-

der one roof. It also is a young neighborhood, with 5,600-plus children. The neighborhood has the lowest amount of open space per capita. It does not have any grocery stories and is near the lowest in public investment per capita. BUCU West and D3 Arts, along with the business and cultural development of the Morrison Road corridor, have been instrumental community partners in getting the cultural district designation and will play a significant role with Re:Vision in

natural resource whose talents and contributions to the life of Denver are fundamental to its health and vitality,” Spiegleman said to a group of advocates inside the Montclair Rec Center gym. “Many attributes that

make Denver friendlier to older adults also will enhance its livability for all ages.” “The more active a senior is, the less medical ills that we have to attend to,” said Spiegleman, who spent a career

creating RISE Westwood. The project also includes Plaza Meshika, a Latin American inspired plaza meant for community use and gatherings, and an art/creative maker center. Re:Vision has worked in the neighborhood since 2009, cultivating a thriving, resilient community by helping families grow their own food and providing a healthy and sustainable solution to living in a food desert.

Social support and inclusion, she said, are among the key determinants of health outlined by the World Health Organization. Getting aging adults to mingle with the young people Denver has already ushered in is just as important to longevity and as lifting weights. Plus, she said, that kind of social interaction makes getting out more fun, all the more reason to open the floodgates for Denver’s public facilities.

Honing their

Craft

Area offers options for writers seeking feedback, networking BY CLARKE READER CREADER@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Colorado doesn’t have the same literary reputation as places like New York, Chicago or San Francisco, but there’s something about the state that draws men and women of letters here. Beat prophets Jack Kerouac, Neal Cassady and Allen Ginsberg all spent time in the Front Range; James A. Michener taught at what is now the University of Northern Colorado; and gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson made Woody Creek, outside of Aspen, his mountain home. That same atmosphere makes Colorado a popular place for writers in the making. “Denver is this kind of quietly literary city,” said Corey Dahl, communications coordinator with Lighthouse Writers Workshop, an organization that has been around for 20 years, and offers classes and opportunities to amateur writers. “We have thousands of writers who come to us for classes and workshops, and we work regularly with the students and faculty associated with Regis University’s Mile-High MFA and the University of Denver’s creative writing Ph.D.” For writers of all ages, skill levels, and genres of interest, there are options to perfect their craft, get feedback, and receive help pursuing a publishing deal. “The goal is to support writers who are just starting and those who have been published locally before,” said Alice Aldridge-Dennis, president and conference director of the Castle Rock Writers. “Most of us have a story to tell, and many people need help working on the art and craft of it.” Many local libraries offer programs for writers to get feedback on their work. According to Rebecca Winning, communications coordinator with Jeffco Public Libraries, the Evergreen Library does a Come

Anne Randolph, founder of Kitchen Table Writing, teaches “Raising the Stakes with Conflict” at a Castle Rock Writers. COURTESY OF DERALD HOFFMAN Write In program on the last Tuesday of the month, for the sharing of writing. In January, the Arvada Library is starting Hard Times writing workshops to help people deal with difficult times, and the Golden Library is starting a series of workshops for writers age 60 and older. In the south metro area, Englewood Public Library is hosting a two-day writers retreat, according to Michelle Brandstetter, adult services librarian. The retreat will feature award-winning authors speaking during the sessions. Local independent bookstores like the Tattered Cover offer large writers resources section, and make a point to feature locally published

authors. “Supporting writing, stories, and information is our core mission, along with connecting readers to the books they are looking for,” said Heather Duncan, director of marketing and events at the Tattered Cover. “Aspiring authors often become published authors and their books may one day be on our shelves. Writer are also some of our most valued customers.” Organizations like Lighthouse and Castle Rock Writers offer more regular meetings in addition to special events and conferences. These regular offerings give participants a chance to fully develop their writing and stories.

“We offer a variety of workshops and classes year-round, from eightweek workshops where students submit and critique each other’s work to one-day intensives that focus on a single element of the writing craft, like plot or character development,” Dahl said. “All of our classes are taught by local working writers, like Eleanor Brown (who wrote the New York Times bestseller ‘The Weird Sisters’) and David Wroblewski (who wrote the bestselling and Oprah Book Club novel ‘The Story of Edgar Sawtelle’).” Castle Rock takes a more locally focused approach, and covers the difficulties of getting published, especially in a small market like Denver. “People don’t realize how much of getting published is marketing oneself,” Aldridge-Dennis said. “You have to do a lot of that work yourself, at writers’ fairs, farmers markets, and other event. You have to sell yourself.” Both Aldridge-Dennis and Dahl said the writing process requires a lot of determination, and commitment to sticking to it, especially when things get discouraging. “Workshopping your writing or studying an element of craft can also open you up to new perspectives and ideas for your work,” Dahl said. “Workshops and classes are great for the community — a forum for discussing writing with people who enjoy writing.”

Pointers for postal package preparation Good box, strong tape, clear address will help gifts arrive safely STAFF REPORT

Make sure to use a sturdy box and strong packaging tape when preparing boxes for shipping. COURTESY PHOTO printed and that all address elements, such as apartment numbers and directional information (ex: 123 S. Main St. Apt. 2B), are included and clear.

This ensures the package can be delivered or returned should the mailing label become damaged or fall off.

The U.S. Postal Service has been busy making sure every sleigh is ready to go this holiday season. Postal workers are ready to deliver special gifts, and the postal service has some tips on how to box a package to help ensure the holidays come off without a snag. First, select a sturdy box that is strong enough to protect the contents. If you are reusing a box, totally remove or obliterate all previous labels and markings with a heavy black marker. The post office provides free Priority Mail boxes in a variety of sizes. Make sure heavy items are in a sturdy box with heavy packing tape, and that no contents are shifting. Place cushioning all around your item until you cannot hear it move inside when you shake it. Use newspaper to stuff glass and fragile, hollow items such as vases to avoid damage. When mailing framed photographs, take the glass out of the frame and wrap it separately. Remove batteries from toys. Wrap and place them next to the toys in the mailing box. Keep new batteries in the original packaging. In addition to packaging the items correctly, labeling is important when shipping a package. Make sure to use the proper address. Don’t guess.
