Englewood’s Dwight Anderson battles to escape the grasp of John Showey of Steamboat Springs in their consolation bracket quarterfinal match during the Class 3A Region 5 Wrestling Tournament held Feb. 9 and 10 at Englewood High School.

Englewood wrestlers tackle regionals Senior, sophomore and freshman represent the team BY TOM MUNDS TMUNDS@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

A trio of Englewood’s wrestlers, two of them new to the sport, faced

the daunting challenge of wrestlers from 11 other teams seeking to go to state during the Pirate-hosted Class 3A Region 3 Wrestling Tournament Feb. 9 and 10. “Two of our kids, freshman Jaheim Young and sophomore Ricardo Chinas, may be new to the sport but they have worked hard all season and I know they will do their best,” Englewood coach Lorenzo Moreno said as the tournament got under-

way. “Our third wrestler is senior Dwight Johnson, who has been wrestling for the Pirates since he was a freshman.” Englewood’s field house walls shook with cheers from the crowd and teammates as well as the advice yelled out by the coaches. Regionals used a 16-wrestler, double-elimination bracket. All SEE WRESTLING, P9

In an about-face from last year’s numbers, the recently released graduation rates for 2016-17 for Englewood High School might elicit some double takes — the district as a whole saw a small downturn, while its traditional high school lost nearly all the gains it made the previous year. Meanwhile, Englewood Schools’ alternative school made a strong climb of more than 5 percentage points — an increase of more than one-fifth the rate it started with. But the causes behind those four-year graduation rate changes are difficult to track, district officials said. “When we look at graduation rates, there’s never really one thing we can point to,” said Diana Zakhem, director of postsecondary and workforce readiness for Englewood Schools. “We know a number of factors impact a student’s ability to graduate on time.” Indicators like attendance, behavior and course failures — what officials call the “ABCs” — are part of what SEE GRADUATION, P40

Commissioner Conti talks county concerns

MY NAME IS

Chair pro tem says problems include traffic, homelessness, rats BY DAVID GILBERT DGILBERT@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Heather Hilgers designs airports as a civil engineer, and raises two daughters who get to roam the neighborhood. DAVID GILBERT

HEATHER HILGERS

Roaming civil engineer with roaming kids Airport builder I’m a mother of two and a civil engineer. I enjoy working really hard. I work at airports, building runways, taxiways and terminal buildings. I’ve worked at tiny airports in Wyoming that have like a dozen based aircraft. I work at DIA right now, but I’ve worked at all levels in between. We work a lot with the airports, their clients and the Federal Aviation Administration. We do a lot of work around safety, and working with general aviation carriers one-on-one. It requires a lot of coordination, because we have to work our construction around their active operations. It’s more working with people than you might think, in terms of coming up with what’s important to them and how to wrap that into our projects. The most fun I had was working part-time at DIA and part-time at the tiny airport in Evanston, Wyoming. It was both ends of the spectrum, every week. I got to see what big airports need, and what their capabilities are. Small airports, however, need everything — they need you to

write their grants, coordinate with their tenants, as well as be their engineer. Free-range kids I’ve got two daughters, 7 and 9 years old, in school at St. Mary’s Academy. My approach is hands-on. Experience life yourself. Mistakes are good. Learn every day. I love St. Mary’s. It’s a real community-based school. My kids are able to translate school friendships to where they can run free in the neighborhood. That’s how my childhood was, and we’re lucky to have friends who ascribe to the same hands-on approach where we can give the kids a longer leash. Prairie girl I grew up in Burlington, on I-70 and the Kansas state line. Life was slow. There weren’t a lot of extracurriculars, so I was a bookworm. My first job was at Dairy Queen. Burlington is so tiny. Growing up, I hated that everyone knew my business, but when I was done and ready to go off to college, but there was a sense of community pride when I went off to college for engineering. It’s the same thing I love about St. Mary’s — a tight-knit community. If you have suggestions for My Name Is, please contact David Gilbert at dgilbert@coloradocommunitymedia.com.

Kathleen Conti represents Arapahoe County’s District 1 on the Board of County Commissioners, an area that includes Littleton, Englewood, Cherry Hills Village, Sheridan, Bow Mar, Columbine Valley, parts of Centennial and some nearby portions of unincorporated Arapahoe County. She recently completed her first full year in office, Conti and is chair pro tem in 2018. We caught up with Conti last week and posed her the following questions: What challenges does the county face? When the Arapahoe County jail and courthouse were built they had a 25-year life expectancy, and they just had their 31st birthday. Many of these years, the jail endured triple-bunking of prisoners and the infrastructure is starting to require major maintenance and repairs. Addressing these needs are especially important to ensure the safety of our sheriff, deputies and judicial servants. Unfortunately, the magnitude of repair issues at the jail is growing, putting additional stress on the capital maintenance budget. What are the biggest issues facing your district? Based on meetings with our local city officials, there are a variety of issues of concern. Columbine Valley is very concerned about the fact that the Colorado Department of Transportation doesn’t want to add an extra stoplight on Platte Canyon because they say it doesn’t meet their standards. A builder in the area will be building about 95 new homes, and neighbors

fear traffic will increase exponentially. They’re asking for a second light. We met with the City of Littleton, and one of the top issues for them was the increasing reports of rats in the area. They’re thinking this is happening because of the decrease in coyotes and foxes, and may also account for the increase in rabbits. The increasing homeless population is an issue. We’re getting reports that Denver police are putting homeless on the light rail to get them out of town, and Littleton is of course the last stop. There are some camping on the soccer field by the High Line Canal trailheads. In Cherry Hills Village, one of their top concerns is how to pay for an underground tunnel to cross under Hampden Avenue near Colorado Boulevard to access the High Line Canal safely. What are the construction and maintenance costs? What’s on the board’s agenda? In 2017, the board created a longrange budget development committee, which is comprised of county commissioners, elected officials, county staff and community leaders. The committee has been meeting to try to come up with some “outside the box” solutions on how to address the county’s budget needs not only today, but in the future. This committee has been trying to develop plans for how to deal with changing criminal justice issues, as well as growing transportation and infrastructure needs. In the Road and Bridge Department we will be working with the Denver Regional Council of Governments and our partner cities on how to prioritize projects that we can tackle together. What issues need more attention than they’re getting? Addiction prevention. Opioids, including prescription painkillers and heroin, nationally killed more than 33,000 people in 2015, more than any year on record. Nearly half of all opioid overdose deaths involve a prescription drug, according to the Centers for Disease Control. SEE CONCERNS, P11

City council approves appointments to LIFT board BY DAVID GILBERT DGILBERT@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

City council approved three new members to the board of Littleton Invests for Tomorrow, or LIFT, the city’s urban renewal board, and reappointed two other members at their Feb. 6 meeting. The new appointments are Jack Rychesky, whose term ends in 2021, and Cindy Christensen and Joseph Orrino, whose terms end in 2020. Kevin Seiler and Nicholas Millar both saw their seats on the board renewed, with their new terms ending in 2023. “I hope the LIFT board gets to work and they can get some sort of proposal from property owners in Columbine Square and can do something positive for the community,” said City Councilmember Kyle Schlachter, who recently stepped down as a member of the board. Columbine Square is a long-vacant shopping center in west Littleton and the city’s final remaining urban renewal district. The number of vacancies on the board had been a matter of contention between the board and city council in recent weeks. Two board members, Kyle Schlachter and Karina Elrod, were

‘I hope the LIFT board gets to work and they can get some sort of proposal from property owners in Columbine Square and do something positive for the community.’ Kyle Schlachter, Littleton City Council member

elected to city council in November. Elrod stepped down from LIFT shortly after the election, but Schlachter remained. Schlachter said he remained on the board with the approval of City Attorney Steve Kemp because he was the board’s signatory, and didn’t want to leave the board without a member who could sign checks and documents. Board member Ryan Toole announced his resignation from the board late last year, bringing the number of vacancies to three in anticipation of Schlachter’s resignation. Schlachter resigned from the board shortly before interviews for new members began in late January. Board member Carol Brzeczek told city council at their Dec. 19 meeting that the board believed there might

be as many as five vacancies, because some members’ terms may have been improperly set at some point in the past, throwing off the end dates of current members’ terms. Brzeczek said the board ought to reconstruct its membership from its beginnings as the Riverfront Authority in 1980 to determine the validity of current members’ terms. City council agreed at the meeting to an expedited search process for new members with a goal of appointing them by early February. City Councilmember Carol Fey introduced an amendment to the motion for an expedited search process, “to require that interviews do not begin until Council has received a recommendation from the LIFT Board on the exact number of vacancies as

the LIFT Board understands it, and that the interview process is open to the public.” The amendment was approved 4-3. The reconstruction of the board’s membership, though, came from City Clerk Wendy Heffner, who confirmed the five vacancies. The discrepancy didn’t sit well with resident Linda Knufinke, who at the Feb. 6 city council meeting called the discrepancy a “disturbing incident.” “Maybe if it were written in Russian, it would have been easier to understand,” Knufinke said, placing a Russian translation of the amendment’s text on the overhead projector at the speaker’s dais. “You’ve heard of fake news, and now we have fake laws,” Knufinke said. Heffner said later by email that she felt the council “followed the spirit of the motion.” Mayor Debbie Brinkman said she felt satisfied with the end result of the process. “At the end of the day, we wanted to make sure terms are correct, they are, and we wanted to make sure it was a public process, and it was,” Brinkman said. Fey said the whole process became more difficult than necessary. “It feels like a tempest in a teapot,” Fey said. “We got to the right place, but we made it really hard to get there.” City Manager Mark Relph and City Attorney Steve Kemp did not respond to requests for comment.

Opportunities explored along Littleton’s Belleview corridor Columbine Square, traffic are among topics of concern BY DAVID GILBERT DGILBERT@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

More than 100 neighbors accepted the city’s invitation to discuss the future of the Belleview corridor at St. James Presbyterian Church on Feb. 5, a meeting that was part of a larger effort to flesh out a future for a piece of Littleton that has received little attention amid an economic and population boom that has reshaped much of the city. The city defines the Belleview corridor as the chunk of Littleton west of Santa Fe Drive, north of Berry Avenue, east of Bow Mar, and south of Union Avenue. The area is largely the domain of big-box retailers, home to Lowe’s, Home Depot and King Soopers. Much of the talk at the meeting, though, centered on one spot: Columbine Square Shopping Center, a long-derelict strip mall that for the past four years has sat vacant, accruing broken windows and graffiti. A fire allegedly started by transients last month destroyed one of the buildings on the site and breathed new life into efforts to demolish the rest. “We’ve got to get Columbine Square down to the dirt,” said Patrick Driscoll, the city councilmember who represents the area, after a lengthy roundtable discussion with area residents. “It’s not only an eyesore but a hazard.” Driscoll said he’d like to see the shopping center replaced with “mixed-use retail and commercial space.” He said that neighbors he spoke to are largely opposed to the idea of high-density

CORRIDOR FROM PAGE 5

Numerous city staff and councilmembers were in attendance at the Feb. 5 open house, seeking feedback on the initial findings. Responses garnered will be presented to a joint study session of city council and the city’s planning commission on Feb. 26. A finalized plan is slated to be adopted by this fall. The plan is intended to be used as a reference for city staff, the planning commission and city council to review and consider development proposals in the corridor, according to documents provided at the meeting, as well as a reference for developers and property owners seeking guidance on desired uses and characteristics for the area. Public input is the cornerstone of the project, said Littleton Senior Planner Dennis Swain. “We don’t want to just go ahead and leave behind something we should have done,” Swain said. “I’m amazed by how many people showed up.”

Other concerns Many attendees aired grievances over Columbine Square, or expressed apprehension at what would come next. “We live really close to Columbine Square, and we don’t want condos or multifamily housing,” said Hillary Wittenhagen, a young mother who recently moved with her partner, Reed Perry, to a house on Irving Street, just west of the shopping center. “We get beautiful morning sun, and tall buildings would take that from us. I’d love to see a park there, or even just some shops with a nice fountain — someplace to walk my baby to.” Though Columbine Square topped the list of concerns for many attendees, concerns over traffic and pedestrian safety were close runners-up. “This area is the redheaded stepchild of Littleton,” said Heather Peterson, who said she’s lived in the neighborhood for a decade. “All the high schools, the library, the rec centers are on the other side of Santa Fe. It’s unpleasant and unsafe to walk along Belleview. You really have to drive to get anywhere worth going.”

Visions of the future Placards set up around the room displayed findings from previous corridor planning meetings regarding existing conditions and future visions for the area. The corridor’s condition presents numerous challenges toward redevelopment: a lack of vacant land for new builds, an auto-dependent land-use pattern, and antiquated zoning in the corridor’s eastern half that doesn’t reflect current market trends. The region also suffers a mishmash of pedestrian accessibility amid a landscape designed for cars rather than people. The corridor lacks a sense of identity or character, according to the findings, and the preponderance of aging single-family homes on relatively large lots could make the area susceptible to “scrape-off ” development that could alter the “feel” of the neighborhood. The corridor’s current condition offers opportunities as well, though. O’Toole’s Garden Center, just south

of Columbine Square, is viewed as a community institution and regional draw that could help attract other retailers. The South Platte River, which flows along the corridor’s eastern edge, offers a desirable recreational amenity. Aging shopping centers along the length of the corridor could see renewed redevelopment interest in a strong economy poised for further growth. Building on the corridor’s existing conditions, the project’s initial findings establish a series of goals or visions for the future. First is to create a distinctive identity for the corridor through the use of branding, wayfinding signage, landscaping, and building design principles that comport with the neighborhood. Other goals include drawing more neighborhood-focused retail and encouraging development and engagement of the riverfront.

Heritage students pitch ice rink design BY DAVID GILBERT DGILBERT@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

If all goes according to plan, Heritage High School seniors Alexa Balkema and Sarah Ervin can come to their high school reunions and take a spin on the synthetic ice skating rink they designed. Balkema and Ervin designed the rink as part of an engineering technology class last fall, using a computer-aided drafting program and a 3D printer to make a mockup for a rink that would fit in a small, seldom-used parking lot behind the school’s tennis courts. Though at 70 feet by 40 feet the rink would be too small to play regulation hockey games, it would be big enough to host youth leagues or smaller groups. Because the surface would be synthetic, the rink wouldn’t require refrigeration. The pair presented their plan to a Heritage hockey fundraiser in December, and have plans to bring it to the school board this spring. Mike Broyles, the girls’ adviser for the Future Business Leaders of America club, said he thinks their project could take them to nationals. “It’s cool to work on something that could become real,” Balkema said. “It’s like leaving a legacy.”

Project Linus to celebrate Make A Blanket Day STAFF REPORT

Children going through traumatic times are gifted with the warmth and comfort of handmade blankets made by Project Linus. Blankets are made and donated to various outreach organization to assist and comfort children. Project Linus will celebrate Make a Blanket Day 2018 from 9 a.m. to noon Feb. 17 at Pax Christi Catholic Church,

Columbine tragedy sparked national effort to provide blankets to children going through traumatic times 5761 McArthur Ranch Road, Highlands Ranch. Fleece blankets will be cut and tied, while various stages of the quilting process are completed. National Make a Blanket Day started in 1999, after the events that took place at Columbine High School, ac-

cording to the Project Linus website. The group found that it was suddenly in need of a large number of blankets. Project Linus chapters put on “blanket bees” all over the country and then sent those blankets to local chapters in Denver. Because of the success of that effort,

Project Linus learned that it had a national network of people who could help and decided to have an annual Make A Blanket Day. Each chapter could host activities to promote Project Linus and increase the group’s inventory of warm cuddly blankets. According to the Project Linus site, National Make A Blanket Day nets 75,000 to 100,000 blankets. For details, go to www.projectlinus. org/ or call Colette at 303-706-0442.

Gun found, students evacuated at school in Englewood Colorado’s Finest underwent lockdown as police searched building

Englewood Police SWAT officers on scene at Colorado’s Finest High School of Choice during a search of the school Feb. 7. During the lockdown, about 200 students who were in the building evacuated to Bishop Elementary School.

BY ELLIS ARNOLD EARNOLD@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Officials locked down Colorado’s Finest High School of Choice in Englewood as police responded to a report of a possible weapon at the school about 2 p.m. Feb. 7. Police vehicles blocked off the perimeter and about 200 students were evacuated on buses to a school across town. Officers recovered a gun from the school at 300 W. Chenango Ave. and took a 17-year-old male student into custody, said Scot Allen, spokesman for the Englewood Police Department. The male was jailed in a facility in Arapahoe County that night. Police submitted five charges for prosecutors to consider, including carrying a concealed weapon on school grounds and interference with staff, faculty or students of an educational institution, which is a charge that applies when there’s a disruption in a place of education, Allen said. Shortly after 2 p.m., concerned parents pulled into a parking lot across the street and waited for students to walk out of Colorado’s Finest, as an Englewood Police SWAT truck drove down the closed-off West Chenango Avenue in front of the school. South Delaware Street was also blocked off. “There were no injuries whatsoever,” Allen said. “Police are performing a search of the school as a precaution.” Police continued to check the building until at least 3:30 p.m., and students arrived at Bishop Elementary School

WRESTLING FROM PAGE 1

wrestlers competed in the first round, where the winners moved up to the next round of the championship bracket, which led to the weight-division regional championship. Wrestlers who lost in the first round of the championship bracket moved to the consolation bracket with the opportunity to still go to state by finishing third or fourth. A second loss in the consolation bracket eliminated the wrestler from the tournament. That is what happened to Young at 126 pounds and Chinas at 182 pounds. Young lost in the first round but drew a bye in the first three rounds in the consolation bracket because there wasn’t a full bracket at 195 pounds, so he was one of the final eight wrestlers in the consolation bracket. His bid to continue to wrestle ended when he lost the match with John Slowey of Steamboat Springs. “This is my fourth year wrestling and it was tougher this season because I was at 195,” Anderson said. “I felt better at 182 but the coach said he

on at least three buses by that time. Evacuation began about 2:30 p.m. No other schools underwent a lockdown, said Julie McMorris, spokeswoman for Englewood Schools. A woman outside Bishop Elementary was texting her grandson, a senior at Colorado’s Finest who was in the building during the lockdown. “Don’t call or text,” he wrote to her just after 2 p.m. “We’re in lockdown. Just in case I love you.” The woman waited for a bus carrying her grandson to arrive. “I was so scared,” she said. “Thank God they’re all OK. We just want to get him home.” No gunshots were fired, McMorris said. The gun found in relation to the male student was reported by another student. Police have not released

felt I would be better at 195 so I moved up.” He said wrestling has been educational. He said it has taught him to never quit fighting and trying. “I also play football and wrestling has made me a better football player,” he said. “One of the biggest lessons wrestling taught me was to keep battling. Wrestling also taught me to be better at using leverage and using my hands when I play football.” He said he is exploring the option of joining the Marines, but if that doesn’t happen he plans to continue his education at Colorado State or the University of Colorado to major in computer engineering and accounting. Moreno said he is proud of the way his wrestlers battled all season and at regionals. “It has been tough, particularly for my two young guys who are wrestling for the first time,” he said. “But I am proud that they never backed down and they never quit. The same is true of Dwight (Johnson). He gave it his best effort every time he was on the mat. He worked hard, wrestled hard and should be proud of all he accomplished this season.”

further details about the nature of the reported threat because the investigation is ongoing. A bus route to Colorado’s Finest from The Englewood Campus (TEC) — which houses Englewood High and Englewood Middle schools and Englewood Leadership Academy — was redirected to Bishop Elementary. Parents were able to meet the evacuated students at Bishop Elementary to pick them up, and some of the students and parents then went back on their own to Colorado’s Finest to pick up their belongings. All those students were gone from Colorado’s Finest by 4:30 p.m., Allen said. A threat of violence was also reported at Englewood High School around 3 p.m. Englewood police responded to

that location and determined there was no threat, and no one was taken into custody. The school did not undergo a lockdown, and the reported threat did not appear to be related to the one at Colorado’s Finest, Allen said. Further information on the nature of that reported threat was not immediately available. Extra mental-health support was provided for staff and students at Colorado’s Finest after the incident there, in addition to counselors already on staff at the school. “Students spent time in their family group (similar to homeroom) reconnecting and debriefing and were allowed to leave class at any time to seek mentalhealth support,” McMorris said. David Gilbert contributed to this report.

Ricardo Chinas, Englewood’s 182-pounder, prepares to clash with Elias Peroulis of Moffat County in the opening round of their weight class competition at the Class 3A Region 3 Wrestling Tournament held Feb. 9 and 10 at Englewood High School. Chinas, a first-year wrestler, battled hard but lost his first two matches in the tournament.

TOM MUNDS

Moreno, who is in his first year as the Pirates’ head coach, wrestled for Englewood. He said he plans next season as a building year for the program. “We will only wrestle a JV schedule next season,” he said. “That is because next season I expect I will have only one of my young guys on varsity back with me, all my three JV kids this year are freshmen and

we expect to have three eighth-graders coming up from the youth team. So I think it is best we wrestle just a JV schedule because I don’t want to have these young, inexperienced wrestlers to have to face varsity opponents. A JV season will give our young guys mat time in competition against wrestlers who, for the most part, will have a lot more experience and wrestling skill.”

Metro area schools look to later start times voted Dec. 14 for later school start times for middle and high school students beginning with the 2018-19 school year. The decision to change school start times followed months of research analysis, parent presentations and extensive opportunities for parent, student and staff input through public forums, open houses and surveys. “If we truly rely on what we believe is compelling scientific research, the question is: Why wouldn’t we do it?” said Brian Ewert, superintendent of Littleton Public Schools. “The research is pretty clear about how much sleep adolescents should get, and more important is when they sleep.” According to Dr. Lisa Meltzer, National Jewish Health adolescent sleep expert, melatonin is a hormone released by the brain that controls the internal clock and prepares the body for sleeping. But during puberty, the timing of the melatonin release is delayed by up to two hours. This makes

Two of the largest districts consider making schedule shifts BY SHANNA FORTIER SFORTIER@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Research says that a later school start time positively impacts alertness, mental health, wellness and behavior in high school and middle school students, which means students are better prepared to learn. Some area school districts have already implemented later start times. Others, including the Jefferson County and Douglas County districts, are exploring the possibility of making the move. The most recent district to commit to the switch is Littleton Public Schools, whose board of education

it nearly impossible for teens to fall asleep early. This shift is also seen in the morning hours, showing that when a teen wakes at 6 a.m. that is equivalent of an adult waking at 4 a.m. An adolescent’s brain is biologically asleep at that time. A 2014 study by the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that middle and high schools delay start of classes to 8:30 a.m. or later. “Doing so will align school schedules to the biological sleep rhythms of adolescents, whose sleep-wake cycles begin to shift up to two hours later at the start of puberty,” the report reads. A National Sleep Foundation poll found 59 percent of sixth- through eighth-graders and 87 percent of high school students in the U.S. were getting less sleep than the recommended 8.5 to 9.5 hours of sleep on a school night. “Chronic sleep loss in children and adolescents is one of the most com-

mon — and easily flexible — public health issues in the U.S. today,” wrote pediatrician Judith Owens, in a policy statement from the American Academy of Pediatrics. A 2013 study by the Hanover Research Institute also found that “school districts could increase student safety and boost adolescent academic success by instituting later start times for middle and high school students.” “It was courageous because it does create hardships,” Ewert said of the Littleton board’s decision. “But I absolutely believe it was the right decision to make and I applaud the board for putting into perspective why we’re doing this.” ‘A game-changer’ While Ewert said the shift will create some challenges, such as additional childcare needed for some

Driver in crash found dead by gunshot STAFF REPORT

The driver in a late-night car crash in Littleton died by suicide Feb. 6, Littleton Police said. Police were dispatched to the 500 block of West Caley Avenue at 3:37 a.m. Feb. 6 on a report of a single-car crash, said Littleton Police spokesman Trent Cooper. Upon arrival, they found a yellow Toyota FJ Cruiser crashed into a parked car. The driver and sole occupant, a 33-year-old man who lived in the neighborhood, was found dead from a gunshot wound. Littleton Police closed the case as a suicide following an investigation and preliminary autopsy results, Cooper said. If you or anyone you know is in crisis, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255).

Littleton Police are looking for an older, dark-colored Volkswagen sedan after a road rage incident on Santa Fe Drive near Belleview Avenue the morning of Feb. 8.

More work is necessary at a local, state and national level, both public and private, to combat and prevent these needless deaths. This is why I’m working on a joint project with the state film director and the University of Colorado film studies program to produce a video that will educate and encourage kids, target age 11-12, to avoid going down the drug path and attempt to be the ounce of prevention in the discussion. What is the board’s approach to dealing with growth? We need to keep it responsible and in keeping with our “Service First” mission, vision and values. As Colorado’s first county, our focus is ensuring Arapahoe County continues to be a great place to live, work, raise a family and retire. Our county is now the third largest in the state, and with a population of 630,000 and growing, maintaining our “Service First” approach is a continu-

The incident began around Oxford Avenue in Englewood, where the suspects and victim began gesturing at one another in traffic, said Littleton Police spokesman Trent Cooper. The victim’s car was shot four times, with one window shot out. Santa Fe Drive was closed for the investigation but has since reopened. Cooper said anyone with information about the incident or suspects should call the Littleton Police nonemergency line at 303-794-1551. ing challenge. Time and again, our wonderful employees step up and deliver incredible customer service and are dedicated to ensure we provide a “Service First” experience every time a citizen conducts business with us. What can the county do about traffic congestion concerns? The county is solely responsible for the roads and intersections in unincorporated portions of the county, which are seldom in population centers. Even some of those, such as Arapahoe Road, University Boulevard and Santa Fe Drive, are state highways. CDOT usually partners with cities on those. Sometimes the county partners in. What resources does the county provide for seniors? We have a Homemaker and Chore Services program, which provides free housekeeping and home repair services to seniors, so they can stay in their homes longer. We try to be a resource for seniors, and connect them with the wealth of services available in the area. Folks interested in finding out more can call our Senior Resources Division at 303-738-8080.

When death took a stranger, it claimed a much-needed friend

I

didn’t know Zackari Parrish. Not at all. I know I have needed men and QUIET women like him my DESPERATION entire life. Not because of the fact that he was a good deputy, but because he was someone with a good heart, and a bright light in a world that often goes deeply cruel on me. (I’m writing this in first person for a Craig Marshall reason.) Smith I read about the 5K run/walk at the Douglas County Fairgrounds, and saw a picture of Parrish’s

wife and read what she said and sat there on the couch and cried. By some design that I cannot explain, there have been just enough good examples in my life against the other kind, of which there are many (too many). People do unthinkable things to people. Now and then, in the middle of it, someone appears, like Parrish, and reminds me that life is worth living. There are times when I have thought otherwise. The morning I watched the Murrah Federal Building fall, and heard there was a daycare full of kids in it. What happened in Los Angeles, my Los Angeles, after the Rodney King verdict. The Turpin kids.

I have had my own moments with the Douglas County Sheriff ’s Office. Back in my own darker days. Every single man and woman I met was kind to me. “Jack,” wherever you are, thanks for being compassionate to a drunk. In some countries, all I see is hate and evil and genocide, and there are no Parrishes, or if there are, they are swiftly punished or executed. Syria now. Cambodia once. Uganda. I wish there were more good people in America than there are. Our freedoms come with a gift card for the bad guys. I’ll take it over repression. I read that Parrish “used humor to de-escalate tense situations.” I do the same thing, only I am the tense situation. I don’t mean I am over here on pins and needles. I mean that

life’s curve balls and sliders get to me, and that’s when I contact Mark, or watch W. C. Fields or read Steve Martin. Mark can turn almost any word into something else, just like Groucho, or take a couple of words and turn them into a brilliant, surreal, non-sequitur, like Steven Wright. I have a number of saved movies, and before I turn off the lights at night, I watch 10 minutes of one that I may have seen a hundred times. I don’t want to go to sleep — or try to go to sleep —with the news of the day on my mind. I watch the same scene in “Sullivan’s Travels” over and over. SEE SMITH, P13

everything from, “Isn’t it about time?” to “Are we headed into recession?” The answer to both, in my opinion, is no. Markets don’t correct because of the calendar, and we are in the middle of a slow growth cycle, nowhere near the end of expansion. Let’s tackle the first one regarding the length of time we have been in recovery with virtually no volatility. When you look at the fundamentals of how stocks are priced it is clear to me that the upward trend is a response to double-digit corporate earnings and the potential for worldwide economic growth. Even though this recovery has been the longest on record, time in recovery is not a predictor of when it will end. The U.S. recovery has been slow due to the impact of global economies climbing back to good health. When

or a strategic plan, “encouragement” is a key element of my anticipated success. I look for family, friends, business partners, clients, co-workers, and associates at all levels to live and work in such a way that we are constantly encouraging one another. It is just too easy to go negative on someone or something. It is too easy to find the faults in a project or program. It’s only easy to go negative if we don’t live with and work with the full armor of hope and encouragement. How’s this for a question to ask your family, your company, or your organization: “Are we living and working with the spirit of hope and encouragement?” Now be truthful in your own response here as well, “Is my family, my business, or my organization living with the spirit of hope and encouragement?” How would you answer this question? How would others answer the question about you, your family, or your company? Would they see people who are life-lifters and encouragers, or would they see and feel a vibe of negativity? As Bruce Springsteen wrote in his song above, “Working on a Dream,” the way we achieve our goals and realize our dreams is when our love makes it real someday. We all have dreams, our family members have dreams, our

our recession ended in 2009, Europe was still two years away from dealing with possible defaults on debt in Greece and almost seven years away from the potential demise of the Eurozone. It would be mid-2017 before the elections in Europe after the Brexit indicated other countries were not going to vote in favor of leaving the European Union and follow the lead from the UK. Then the effects of the work of the European Central Bank (ECB) could take hold and create enough liquidity to stabilize the Union. Meanwhile the United States is tightening the money supply through rising interest rates. This caused a reaction from China in early 2016 when they devalued their currency, the yuan, throwing our markets into a brief downturn. Since then we have been enjoying nice upward trends with the rest of the world following suit. So that is a short primer on why the recovery is taking so long. Now, how does that help us determine when we would head into reces-

friends have dreams, our associates and co-workers have dreams. Our job, our responsibility to one another is to lift each other up, and open those doors of hope with positive encouragement and love. Anyone can go negative, that’s easy. But it is the difference-makers in life who fill their families, their communities, and this world with hope and encouragement. We all know someone very close to us who is working on a dream, don’t we? A dream to be cancer-free, a dream to beat addiction or have a loved one find sobriety, a dream to find a new job, a dream to start a new business, a dream for happy and healthy children, a dream of a loving and flourishing relationship, a dream of peace, and so many other dreams and goals. Let’s help them, let’s lift them up, let’s let our hope, encouragement, and love make it all real someday. So how about you? Are you working on a dream? Do you know someone who is? Are you filling them with hope, encouragement, and love? I would really love to hear your sources of motivation and inspiration at gotonorton@ gmail.com.

sion again? It is important to understand where we are in the economic expansion cycle before we can determine how fast this cycle will come to an end. According to Fritz Meyer, economist, “Bull markets end when the yield curve inverts. That’s not happened, and it may not happen anytime soon. The economy is strong. But key fundamentals are changing.” He goes on to state that this change brings opportunity. According to William Greiner, CFA and chief investment strategist with Mariner Wealth Advisors, the market drawdown is being driven by three main fears: rising inflation; higher interest rates; and fear that the Fed may make a mistake. Any one of these could cause continued market volatility and we are currently facing all three. Consumers have been spoiled by low inflation and investors have come to expect continued increases in their investment accounts. Both of these

conditions are showing signs of aging. It is important to align yourself with a good strategy for navigating the changes in taxes, economic expansion, the rise of inflation and interest rates. The right kind of diversification is extremely important in this environment. You deserve to have a guide to help you traverse these changes rather than piecing together information from the media. They don’t know you.

Although the shift in Englewood five years ago was less about the research and more about being able to share staff between schools when the new Englewood High campus was built, Ewert said after the first year they saw a positive impact on behavior, an increase in attendance and a decrease in tardiness. “I just think kids are more awake and ready to engage in learning,” said

changes in their students. Siegfried said his district has seen better first-hour attendance and fewer behavioral problems. “This is truly a game-changer for kids and I would encourage anyone to pay some serious attention to it,” he said. Pondering the shift Jefferson County Public Schools, Douglas County School District and Westminster Public Schools are all in the process of exploring later school start times for secondary students for future academic years. Westminster is in the early stages with what James Duffy, chief operating officer, referred to as creating draft proposals, policy discussions, internal vetting. Jeffco is a little further along as the district will be hosting a meeting in mid-February to put a community task force together to examine the issue. While Jeffco Superintendent Jason Glass said the brain science concerning sleep patterns for teenagers sparked this discussion, transportation issues offer challenges for a large district like Jeffco.

“There is a significant impact on transportation in the district,” Glass said, adding that traffic patterns and buses that run to multiple schools will need to be taken into account when working on a possible shift. “We time out to the minute how long we want buses to run,” Glass explained. “When you change something, it can have a cascading effect. It’s one of those things that we’ll have to look at.” Glass hopes the district can have a thoughtful discussion about the pros and cons of the issue. The final decision would be made by the school board. The research and changes that other districts have made also got Douglas County’s Board of Education to look at making a change. Staff is currently re-examining research and surveying stakeholders. Both the Douglas and Jeffco districts are not looking to make the possible change until the 2019-20 school year. “We want to go slowly, learn from our other districts before we jump in,” Douglas County School Board President David Ray said.

Film gathering aims to inform, inspire in 12th year

Colorado Environmental Film Festival brings together creators from all over world BY CLARKE READER CREADER@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

T

here’s no accounting for the twists and turns that bring creative people together, but the first meeting of filmmakers Haley Thompson and Tomas Zuccareno was all too fitting, in light of the work they would end up doing together — they meet at The Local Food Convergence in Aspen back in early 2016. “We both wanted to make a movie about the next generation of farming, and sustainable and healthy food,” Zuccareno remembers. “We both recognized there was a problem in the farming communities we came from — that young people weren’t getting the support they needed to do this important work.” Now, after two years of filming and editing, the pair are ready for the world premiere of their first film, “How We Grow,” which will take place at the 12th annual Colorado Environmental Film Festival.

IF YOU GO WHAT: Colorado Environmental Film Festival WHERE: American Mountaineering Center 710 10th St., Golden WHEN: Feb. 22 through 24 COST: Tickets range in price from $8 per person for a single film screening session to $50 per person for access to all film screening sessions all three days of the festival. TICKETS: www.ceff.net The festival runs from Feb. 22 through 24 at Golden’s American Mountaineering Center, 710 10th St. About 56 films will be shown, some shorts and others closer to feature length, all of which are aimed at raising awareness of interconnected ecological, social and economic themes. International and local filmmakers will be represented. “Colorado is such a great place to host a festival like this, not only because of how active residents are, but because so many people are invested in protecting the environment,” said Nicole Bickford, festival director. “We want to show films that bring light to environmental issues, but also offer solutions and hope for the future.” The free opening night event, SEE FILM, P18

The Colorado Environmental Film Festival is returning to Golden for its 12th year. This year, there will be 56 movies screened, all of which tackle important environmental issues.

he Denver home of violinist and jazz musician George Morrison was always filled with music, as his granddaughter Trudi Morrison remembers it. That music was not only from the students who received lessons at the house, but from the jazz luminaries who stopped in — figures like Duke Ellington, Nat King Cole and Jelly Roll Morton. “Denver was strictly segregated at the time, so touring musicians weren’t able to stay at the hotels. Instead, they stayed with us at Big Daddy and Big MomCOMING my’s house,” Morrison ATTRACTIONS said. “Everyone knew who he was, and they still remember him. He was like Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny, all rolled into one.” Morrison (1891-1974) made his first violin from a corn stalk, a piece of wood, and Clarke Reader some string, and first played publicly with his brother in mining camps in the mountains west of Boulder. He married in 1911 and started “George Morrison and his Jazz Orchestra,” one of Denver’s first jazz orchestras. In 1920, he played a command performance in London for King George and Queen Mary. To celebrate Morrison and other visionaries of African-American musical and cultural history, the Arvada Center, 6901 Wadsworth Blvd., is hosting The Legacy Show at 7:30 p.m. on Feb. 24. The multimedia musical experience is anchored by music of African-American composers performed by violinist Tami Lee Hughes and pianist Byron BurfordPhearse. The program features classical music infused with a variety of styles, including spirituals, blues, gospel, hip-hop, and jazz. Portraying cultural themes of the Antebellum Period, the Harlem Renaissance, the Civil Rights Era, and Modern Times, the program includes poetry and visual media projected onto a large screen, providing images of people and places thematically related to the music. “As a classically trained violinist, I love traditional repertoire, but the music featured in the show is a fusion of all of the styles I heard growing up in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, including classical, jazz, gospel, spirituals, and blues,” said Hughes, whose artistic direction of the show is an extension of her debut solo recording. “As I researched music of African-American composers, I found a treasure trove of pieces rarely heard on the concert stage. Through The Legacy Show, I hope to share some of these works and celebrate the composers who SEE READER, P22

University Blvd., Centennial. ROAD is funded by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and administered by the Colora-

Older drivers are often the safest drivers in that they are more likely to wear their seatbelts, and less likely to speed or drink and drive. However, older drivers are more likely to be killed or seriously injured when a crash does occur due to the greater fragility of their aging bodies. During the CarFit event, trained technicians work with drivers to

make small adjustments to things such as proper settings for their side mirrors and seat positioning, which can make a difference in a driver’s comfort level and help protect them and those around them. CarFit is an educational program created by the American Society on Aging and developed in collaboration with AAA, AARP and the American Occupational Therapy Association. The 20-minute checkup is free, but registration is preferred for CarFit. Interested drivers should call 303991-5740 to make an appointment.

beginning at 5:30 p.m. on Feb. 22, will include a reception featuring light appetizers, drinks, opportunities to interact with local businesses and a special silent auction benefiting CEFF programs. Afterward, there will be a screening of the film “Chasing Coral” and awards ceremony, hosted by local activist and filmmaker (and former mayor of Golden) Jacob Smith. Over the following days, films on a variety of subjects — ranging from deforestation and ocean health to wolves and, in the case of Jane Zelikova’s film, “End of Snow,” the effects of climate change on snowpack in the Western United States — will be shown. It premieres during the 7 to 9 p.m. session on Feb. 24. “The film follows me, a climate change scientist, as I go on a journey to learn how snowpack is changing in the West and what changes we can expect in the future,” Zelikova explained. “The

February 15, 2018F idea came from my own research on the impacts of dust on snowpack in the Snowy Range mountains in Wyoming.” Many filmmakers, like Thompson and Zuccareno, will be on hand for their screenings, and available for discussions and meetings afterwards. In “How We Grow,” which premieres at 7:30 p.m. on Feb. 23, Thompson and Zuccareno take a look at ambitious young farmers building community around locally grown food in the Roaring Fork Valley of Western Colorado. It examines the characters and systems of farming through the themes of education, legislation, community, food access and micro-finance — in order to tell the story of how these farmers are able to create resilient food systems. “There’s a lot stacked against these farmers and their communities,” Thompson said. “We hope the response to the film is that people are inspired to get their hands in the dirt and start working.” For Zelikova, film is a way to bring the global challenge of climate change to people in a realistic, moving way. Stories help people connect to ideas and inspire

them to tackle challenges, she added. “As much as it feels overwhelming, there are solutions we can implement today, solutions that don’t require a breakthrough invention or new technology,” she said. “These solutions come from people who want to be good stewards of their land and manage in a sustainable way, in the process helping fight climate change.” It would be easy for the films shown

in the festival to be all doom and gloom, but Bickford said that’s why CEFF focuses on films that inspire, as well as inform. “We’ve found that a festival atmosphere like this is great, because people really love to gather and talk about solutions after they see these kinds of movies,” she said. “We want people to walk away empowered and know that they want to get involved.”

Dancers, musicians convey modern mythology ‘Aphrodite’s Switchboard’ shows varying outcomes of magical bid to foster love BY SONYA ELLINGBOE SELLINGBOE@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Garrett Ammon, choreographer/ director of Wonderbound contemporary dance company, has again collaborated with the Denver psychedelic folk band Chimney Choir (the two companies previously produced the popular “Boomtown”), to produce a new artistic creation: “Aphrodite’s Switchboard,” which appears in three area theaters to herald spring, Valentine messages and looks at assorted human relationships. Described as “a full length evening of theatrical dance,” it will feature the company’s remarkable dancers and music compiled in a new album that features folk harmonies and instrumental melodies to create a landscape for masterful storytelling through Feb. 2, in conjunction with the versatile band. That earthly landscape, set in the 1930s era, looks dreary to the gods on Mount Olympus, so they send Aphrodite, goddess of love, desire and beauty — accompanied by Hermes (messenger of the gods and sometime trickster, with winged feet and helmet) — to bring love back to the world. The goddess soon finds a job as a switchboard operator and begins to connect people — with varying results. Ammon said the new project “pushed all of us into new territory while exploring themes that have captivated humanity through the ages. This production is a great example of the magical possibilities that arise

An exploration of conveying ancient mythological tales with contemporary music offered new experiences — and the first band production with Greek mythology as source. Formerly known as Ballet Nouveau, Wonderbound’s company began to change with Ammon’s arrival in 2007 — and his penchant for using live music. In 2012, the name Wonderbound and a symbol of a jumping red hare were adopted and the company moved its headquarters to Denver from Broomfield. (Check the website for announcements of performances and open rehearsals in this urban studio.) Chimney Choir began in 2011 with guitar, banjo, mandolin and suitcase drum and have toured nationally, while developing “layers of electronics, live looping and percussion. They remain fascinated with folk music and traditions while they constantly evolve and experiment …” Watch for the next Wonderbound production — with members of the Colorado Symphony — in April/May: “Madness, Rack and Honey.”

‘See What is Unseen’ set to intrigue gallery visitors Littleton exhibit of various artworks puts focus on concept of mystery BY SONYA ELLINGBOE SELLINGBOE@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

In Littleton, Stanton Gallery curators Moira Casey and Karina Elrod have searched for art that is a bit mysterious to coordinate with Town Hall Arts Center’s latest production, the musical “Something’s Afoot,” a spoof of Agatha Christie’s mysteries, which opens Feb. 23 at Town Hall Arts Center. “See What is Unseen,” with wall sculptures and paintings inspired by the concept of mystery, will fill the gallery through March 27, with an artists’ reception from 5:30-7 p.m. on March 2. Artists Deborah Howard, Mark Johnston and Kalliopi Monoyios will present their artworks. Deborah Howard, who studied at the Rhode Island School of Design and the University of Wisconsin-Madison, heads the painting program at the University of Denver. She exhibited “Migration and Memory” at the Venice (Italy) Jewish Museum

in 2017. It included shoe sculptures and textiles printed with her paintings and photographs of the Ghetto and ancient and modern Jewish cemeteries on the Lido. The exhibit addressed migration as “universal and natural to human beings to survive and evolve since the beginning of time” (versus emigration and immigration— political constructs). Her 20032008 project: “Portraits of Child Holocaust Survivors” will soon be permanently placed in the Beck Collection at the University of Denver. Kalliopi Monoyios is a fine artist and illustrator whose work explores a deep fascination with the natural world — and our connection to it. In 2011, she was invited to co-found “Symbiartic,” a science and art blog for Scientific American, and “began to immerse herself in the growing movement of “scienceart,” the intersection of science and art. (Look online at the blog — blogs.scientificamerican.com/ symbiartic — a treasure trove!)

have left a rich legacy through music we can all enjoy.” In addition to Morrison, the performance will feature music from Duke Ellington, David Baker, Daniel Roumain, Kerwin Young, and more. But for this Denver-based crowd, Morrison’s work will be the most personal to hear. Which is something his granddaughter understands perfectly. “We have a family history of breaking racial barriers, and we all stand of the shoulders of those who came before us,” she said. “Big Daddy’s story is one of striving and thriving in a time of deep-rooted segregation.” Hughes did plenty of research when putting The Legacy Show, and she hopes concert-goers learn about the different voices and styles of music from different generations and backgrounds. “The show is for everyone, but I especially like to see young people in the audience. There is distance between them and a lot of the history in the show, so the performance gives them context for understanding complex issues we are dealing with today,” she said. “I hope The Legacy Show inspires great conversations, including talks between people of different generations.” For tickets and more information, visit www.arvadacenter.org/the-legacyshow.

For those who see the broom-and-iceand-stone sport of curling and want to give it a try, the Denver Curling Club will be hosting an open house and drop-in learning classes on from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and 7 to 9 p.m., on Saturday, Feb. 17, and from 2 to 4 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 18, at the club’s headquarters, 14100 W. Seventh Ave. in Golden. Visitors can learn about throwers and how they practice their deliveries (also called pitches or throws), and sweepers, who use brooms to sweep the ice. Visitors are encouraged to hang out, enjoy the Olympics on television, see curlers in action, and talk to members about our adult leagues and junior programs — all children must bring a helmet of any kind to wear. For the drop-in classes, they last 30 minutes on the ice with instruction and a free nonalcoholic drink for $20.

Clarke’s Concert of the Week - Majid Jordan at the Gothic Canadian R&B duo Majid Jordan, made up of Majid Al Maskati and Jordan Ullman, have provided plenty of backing vocals for more well-known artists like Drake, but they took their skills to a whole new level on their sophomore album, “The Space Between.” Now Majid Jordan will be taking the stage at Englewood’s Gothic Theatre, 3263 S. Broadway, at 9 p.m. on

FEB 17-18 WONDERBOUND APHRODITE’S SWITCHBOARD

Sunday, Feb. 18. “The Space Between” is easily one of the year’s sexiest albums, but it explores all aspects of romantic relationships, including moving on from old loves to the fickleness of contemporary relationships. “One I Want” is one of the best singles of the year, and “Gave Your Love Away” shows the pair’s vocal range. While Majid Jordan is obviously heavily influenced by modern soul artists like Frank Ocean and Miguel, they add flourishes of electronic music that are all their own. Seeing and hearing how they translate all of this to the stage makes the show this week’s can’tmiss concert. To get tickets, visit www.gothictheatre.com. Life is a cabaret with the Denver Chorale The Denver Chorale is preparing to bring the laughs to audiences for its annual spring cabaret performance at the “Make ‘Em Laugh” Cabaret at Dazzle Jazz, 1512 Curtis St. in Denver, at 6 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 18.

From musicals to pop, every song choice will be performed by a talented member (or group) of the Denver Chorale, and is designed to have the audience rolling in the aisles. The chorale is a group of singers from throughout the metro area, and is led by founder and artistic director Valerie Montaño, a veteran music teacher. The group advocates the virtues of music, especially

Littleton third-grader grows colossal cabbage STAFF REPORT

CALM AFTER THE STORM

SM

Alena Shinabery, of Littleton, is the Colorado winner of the National Bonnie Plants Cabbage Program with her 26.6-pound cabbage. COURTESY PHOTO

GROWING KING-SIZE CABBAGE  Sun requirements: Cabbages need at least six hours of full sunlight a day, more if possible.  Room: Bonnie O.S. Cross “oversize” cabbages need at least three feet on each side to spread out. If you don’t have that much space, use a large container.  Soil: Work some compost into the soil. Cabbages love nutrient-rich soil.  Fertilizer: Start your cabbage off right with an all-purpose vegetable fertilizer, then fertilize it according to label directions to keep it growing strong.  Water: Your cabbage needs at least one inch of rainfall each week. If it doesn’t rain, use a watering can or garden hose to gently water your plant at soil level.  Vigilance: Keep weeds out of the cabbage patch. Watch for brown or white moths — these come from worms that love to munch on cabbage. If you see any, get rid of them right away. If temperatures fall to freezing or below, cover your cabbage with a bucket or cloth covering.

A huge cabbage grown by a thirdgrader from Mark Twain Elementary was selected as the Colorado state winner of the National Bonnie Plants Third Grade Cabbage Program. Alena Shinabery’s 26.6-pound cabbage was randomly selected by Colorado’s agriculture department, and she will receive a $1,000 savings bond from Bonnie Plants. More than 1 million third-graders in the 48 contiguous states gained handson gardening experience, growing colossal cabbages for the Kids Grow Green: Cashing in Cabbage contest. Why a cabbage? Coincidentally, cabbages were the first profitable plant sold by Bonnie Plants in 1918 and are known to be a hearty vegetable. The cabbages provided to the third-grade program are “O.S. Cross” cabbages; this variety is known for producing giant, oversized heads, making the process even more exciting for kids. Bonnie Plants is the largest producer of vegetable and herb plants in North America with 80 greenhouses across the country. Bonnie Plants delivered the “oversized” cabbage plants to third-grade classrooms whose teachers signed up for the program. If nurtured and cared for, the plants could grow bigger than a basketball. At the end of the season, teachers from each third-grade class select the student who has grown the best cabbage, based on size and appearance. A digital image of the cabbage and student is submitted online, and the student’s name is entered in a statewide drawing. “The Bonnie Plants Cabbage Program is a wonderful way to engage children’s interest in agriculture, while teaching them not only the basics of gardening, but the importance of our food systems and growing our own,” said Stan Cope, president of Bonnie Plants. “We’re certainly extremely proud of our Colorado state winner Alena Shinabery.” The cabbage program is free to any third-grade classroom, and teachers can register at http://bonniecabbageprogram.com/ for the 2018 program.

Heritage senior Kylie Andrews acknowledges Eagles fans and teammates after winning the 100-yard freestyle and defending her state championship at the Class 4A state swimming championships, which concluded Feb. 10 at the Veterans Memorial Aquatics Pool in Thornton. JIM BENTON

Heritage, Valor athletes claim titles Kylie Andrews won pair of events at state swimming, diving meet BY SCOTT HANSEN SPECIAL TO COLORADO COMMUNITY MEDIA

Three south metro area high school girls swim and dive teams had top 10 finishes at the CHSAA Girls 4A State Championships, which concluded Feb. 10. Valor Christian finished third, Heritage was fourth and Highlands

Ranch finished in a three-way tie for sixth place at the meet in Thornton. Colorado Springs’ Rampart High School completed an undefeated season with the state championship. Heritage and Valor Christian each won first place in three individual events. Heritage’s Kylie Andrews won the 100- and 200-yard freestyle en route to being named the 4A Swimmer of the Year. “Everyone here is the best of the best. The competition is as good as it’s going to be, so it makes me excited,” Andrews said. “My relationship with friends on this team and on other teams makes this priceless.

It really helps to have the support of my team behind me. It makes us better as a team.” Andrews, a senior, won both events by mere hundredths of a second over the elite competition and is headed to the University of Houston next season to compete on the Cougars’ swim team. “I felt most at home there and the coach and the team seem really welcoming and really good,” she said. “I’m going to continue to work hard and improve myself.

Arapahoe’s Cable wins 5A state diving title Warriors finish fourth as a team in Fort Collins BY JIM BENTON JBENTON@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Arapahoe junior Franny Cable made a big splash at the Class 5A Swimming Championships on Feb. 10 at the Eldora Pool Ice Center in Fort Collins.

She won the divining title, which helped the Warriors finish fourth in the team standings behind state champion Fossil Ridge, Fairview and Regis Jesuit. Cable, a runner-up last season, finished ahead of Douglas County/ Castle View senior Sam Tamborski, who is headed to the University of Iowa to dive next season. Cable had 531.45 points compared to 499.10 for Tamborski. “(Cable) was determined to win,”

Arapahoe dive coach Jeff Smith said. “She is a competitor and when she gets focused you better watch out.” Arapahoe diver Kristen Belitz was the sixth-place diver. Senior Delaney Smith was the other standout for the Warriors. She was second in the 200 IM, fourth in the 100 breaststroke and swam on two relay teams in the finals. Gabreece VanAnne was seventh in the 50 freestyle. SEE CABLE, P39

ittle things can make a big difference in a basketball game and in life. Rock Canyon girls basketball coach Becky Mudd followed up on a good idea of creating a personal challenge for her players, and the game against Legend on Feb. 6 was designatOVERTIME ed the Small ActionsBig Changes game. Each girl selected a cause, person, family or group to play the game in honor of. The girls then had to commit to do a small action to support the person/ Jim Benton cause they selected. Sophomore Molly McEowen played for Alzheimer’s awareness, a disease that touches a lot of people, including her grandfather. For her action, she gave up eating lunch for a week and donated that money to Alzheimer’s research. Sophia Kozmata’s grandmother passed away from Parkinson’s disease, so Kozmata played for Parkinson’s awareness and wore colored laces. The senior forward shared what basketball meant to the family as they suffered with the disease. Saving animals from puppy mills was the selected cause for sophomore guard Dana Weiss, who is a vegetarian to support animals and is vocal about the mistreatment of animals. Several players got pledges for points, wrote cards and letters to people, did random acts of kindness, made donations, and wore special colored gear. All shared their stories with the team about their causes, such as Charity H2O, breast cancer awareness, diabetes, pediatric cancer, the American Heart Association, pancreatic cancer, Dr. Jill Pechacek 29:11 Challenge, Make-A-Wish and the Pine Ridge Reservation. Talking football Dave Logan and Ed McCaffrey worked five seasons together broadcasting Denver Broncos football games on the radio as the play-byplay announcer and the analyst, respectively.

and do the things you want to do. When I watch him coaching, meeting with coaches or drawing up plays, he is a happy man. He showed me this can be done.”

I’m sure they probably talked a little about high school football, since Logan is the coach at Cherry Creek and three of McCaffrey’s four sons played for Valor Christian against Creek during that time. McCaffrey, who gave up his analyst duties last season, is now the head football coach at Valor. So once again Logan and McCaffrey will be talking high school football. “Dave was a great inspiration to me,” said McCaffrey. “I watched somebody I respect who played at a high level and is one of the best in the business at broadcasting, yet he still has the passion while coaching football. “He’s had unbelievable success in his high school coaching. It’s because he loves what he is doing. I love this sport too and love coaching it. He kind of paved the way. He showed me you could have a family, have a profession, coach high school football

Skill competition in ice hockey I recall a few of the first high school hockey games I witnessed a few decades ago. It was like watching the movie “Slap Shot,” where players resorted to playing a violent style to become popular. There wasn’t much attention paid to hockey. Most of the interest for the players and spectators centered around physical play on the ice, which often carried over off the ice by fans after the games. Times have changed and the skill level of high school hockey players is better. “High school hockey is getting better and better by leaps and bounds,” said former University of Denver coach George Gwozdecky, who is now the Valor Christian head hockey coach. “Of course you have your programs that are developing a little slower than other programs.

BY THE NUMBERS

“More and more kids are starting to move towards high school hockey for many reasons, and as a result it is getting more competitive. Rosters on the varsity teams are getting deeper. Kids are starting to realize they can get to junior hockey from playing high school, whereas in the past most of those kids had to play triple A hockey.” The regular CHSAA season is ending and 24 teams will advance to the state playoffs. The top eight teams in RPI rankings get byes into the second round. First-round games are scheduled for Feb. 20-21. Second-round and quarterfinals are set for Feb. 23 and 24. Frozen Four games are set for 5 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. March 5 at the Pepsi Center with the title game on tap for March 6 at the Pepsi Center. Top eight in the RPI after games of Feb. 9 were Regis Jesuit, Valor Christian, Monarch, Fort Collins, Steamboat Springs, Cherry Creek, Chaparral and Aspen.

When making their bids, all bidders except the Secretary must submit a deposit totaling 10% of the Secretary’s bid in the form of a certified check or cashier’s check made out to the Secretary of HUD. A deposit need not be accompany each oral bid. If the successful bid is oral, a deposit of 10% of the Secretary’s bid must be presented before the bidding is closed. The deposit is nonrefundable.

“I’m really happy that these blessings and opportunities are coming for me. It’s a chance to better myself.” As Andrews leaves Heritage, her mantle of two-time defending state champion could be grabbed by freshman teammate Anna Shaw, who won first place in the 50-yard freestyle with a time of 23.54, beating several upperclassmen in the event. “I’m excited,” Shaw said. “It was a big team effort today. Here at state, it’s a lot different with all age levels and it’s more competitive, but it’s the same spirit of fun.” Shaw also finished fourth in the 100-yard freestyle, where she competed against eventual champion Andrews. In her next three years at the school, Shaw said she wants to improve in the same events, while also branching out to other areas. “I want to try out some new events and see what I can do in those,” she said.

Valor Christian showed up as a dominating team in the relays, winning the 400-yard freestyle relay and setting a new 4A state record in the 200-yard freestyle relay with a time of 1:35.90. “I’m so proud of them,” said Stenstrom, whose team also includes two of her daughters, junior Lindsay and freshman Ashley. “We had to overcome so much adversity this year and they had to dig deeper than we could have imagined. Their hearts and their desires to finish third in the state with the adversity we had to go through shows they can do anything.” Part of the adversity that the Valor Christian team overcame this year was the injury to last year’s Public Notice diving state champion Izzi Mroz, who CALL FOR NOMINATIONS WILD PLUM METROPOLITAN DISTRICT spent the entire regular season nursing stress fracture.

ships, where she reclaimed her title, finishing in first place over Rampart’s Maggie Buckley by just 0.15 points. “I didn’t think going into it that I could win state,” Mroz said. “It’s been pretty rough, but my parents always say that they don’t raise quitters, so I kept telling myself that I wasn’t going to quit, and I was going to fight through it. The win feels really good right now, especially over the competition here.” Mroz, a senior, was named the 4A Diver of the Year after the state championships. She has accepted a scholarship to Virginia Tech University, where she will be competing on the diving team. Stenstrom said the award for coach of the year was a humbling and meaningful award for her. “It means everything. The reason is that this is an award voted on by my peers and I have so much respect for them,” Stenstrom said. “To see all that the other coaches do to put so much heart into their girls, and then for them to honor me, I’m really humbled.” sixth in the 100 breaststroke and swam on both relay teams.

GRADUATION FROM PAGE 1

the district looks to improve through programs and services it offers to students. A number of programs that aim to engage students — from career and technical education programs to simply making them feel more supported — are among the strategies the district employs to try to build on the progress it’s made in recent years.

Ups and downs for four-year graduation From school year 2015-16 to 2016-17, Englewood High School’s graduation rate fell about 7 percentage points, from 75.6 percent to 68.8 percent. That puts it right back where it was three years ago — the rate for school year 2014-15 was 68.4 percent, itself a small dip in a rate that’s wobbled back and forth since 2010. The district-wide graduation rate is a combination of the EHS rate and that of the alternative school, Colorado’s Finest High School of Choice, which is why Englewood’s overall rate usually looks lower than other districts, said Julie McMorris, spokeswoman for Englewood Schools. Colorado’s Finest mostly serves students defined by the state Education Department as at high risk of dropping out due to various personallife obstacles or factors — or who are older than the traditional age for their grade level and are behind on credit hours — and students who have an in-

dividualized education program (IEP) based on a disability or emotional challenges, as well as some students who fall outside those two groups. Colorado’s Finest saw a rise in graduation rates from 23.5 percent in 2015-16 to 28.8 percent in 2016-17. It’s a large leap for the school, which has more than doubled its graduation rate since 2010. That year is when former Superintendent Brian Ewert took his position in the district, heralding a new era of stability in which Englewood Schools implemented a new model for instruction, playing a role in residents passing a $50 million bond for construction of a new high-school campus that also houses both the city’s middle schools. In that time, graduation rates ran on a general upward trend, especially as Englewood’s combined rate between its two high schools jumped 11.5 percentage points for school year 2012-13. But EHS’ fallback can appear puzzling against that backdrop. Tools for progress Tying new programs and ideas to fluctuations in graduation rates isn’t always easy because they can take a while to show results, Zakhem pointed out. “Sometimes we implement a program like Ignite, but don’t see results for three or four years,” Zakhem said, because one cohort of students has to fully go through it. That program at Colorado’s Finest involves self-exploration, college visits, worksite visits and mock inter-

views, Zakhem said. “We put in some innovative programming to help kids connect with their futures — some career and technical education (and) industry certificates, concurrent enrollment,” Zakhem said. It’s “really focused on relevancy — why does school matter?” At EHS, Colorado’s Finest and Englewood Middle School, the AVID program — Advancement Via Individual Determination — is another college-readiness system, Zakhem said. Organizational skills and critical reading are among the assets teachers in various classes focus on, and an AVID elective class for middle- and lower-achieving students prepares them for the rigor they’ll face in higher education and the workforce, according to the district’s website. Career and technical education is also a pillar of Englewood Schools’ approach — programs like SAGE (Sustainable Agriculture and Green Energies), audio production, cosmetology, STEM, journalism and broadcast journalism, culinary arts, and business are offered for students at both high schools. It’s about being able to “connect kids to their passion,” Zakhem said. We “want students taking those classes to be able to determine if it’s a fit for them.” Englewood Schools participates in a consortium, a partnership with Littleton Public Schools, Cherry Creek School District, Sheridan School District and Douglas County School District, that allows its students ac-

cess to career and technical education programs in those districts and vice versa. A personal touch Increasingly over recent years, Englewood Schools has focused on addressing students’ personal and emotional needs, too. “We take the social-emotional needs of our students very seriously,” Zakhem said. We “do know those (needs) affect their academic life, so we want to make sure we have services to support that.” For EHS, officials are taking steps so freshmen will be assigned an academic adviser who will maintain a strong relationship with each student and keep them on track, Zakhem said. “They already have the counselor, but this is an additional person looking out for them and for challenges they might encounter,” McMorris said. The goal is to have every student feel that there are adults in that building who care about them — that they each have an adult advocate, Zakhem said. That sentiment, part of the fabric of Colorado’s Finest, may be part of its upswing, Zakhem said. More counselors on staff, added social-emotional efforts and the extra personal attention teachers can give to each student there — enrollment averages a few hundred students — are part of the strategy. “I think all of those things in combination over a period of time (are) what has made a positive impact,” Zakhem said. “So there’s a lot to celebrate there.”
