MY NAME IS Amy Kozdron is a Littleton native and the owner of The Pink Attic Cat vintage store. KYLE HARDING

School districts brace for dip in home property taxes Gallagher Amendment could hit education funding, parks BY KYLE HARDING KHARDING@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

AMY KOZDRON

Littleton native, store owner

About me I’m a Littleton native and I own The Pink Attic Cat vintage shop on Rapp Street. I lived in Denver for a couple years and Englewood for a couple years. Now we live next to the cemetery. The overall aesthetic of a small downtown is appealing. I like the fact that I live close by. If I want to walk to work I can.

A career in vintage items I was a stay-at-home mom to two sons before I opened my store 13 years ago. My love of vintage items started with my grandparents. They used to

take us for rides on Sundays and we’d end up in some little town somewhere looking at junk shops and bottle stores. It’s in my blood. Finding new items I like picking a lot, going out and looking for stuff for the shop. Sometimes we go to really terrible places. We were just in a building that had been closed for 40 years. It was a furniture store. There was gross stuff in there. We have found amazing things in the weirdest places. We travel between here and Michigan, where my husband’s family lives. There’s this place that’s literally called The Junk Shop and we stop there on the way. It’s like 20 acres of stuff and you have to go dig around and you never know what you’re going to find. It’s so cool. If you have suggestions for My Name is…contact Kyle Harding at kharding@coloradocommunitymedia.com

Colorado homeowners will benefit from a property tax decrease next year, but local districts that are funded by property taxes are preparing for a hit. Since 1982, state property tax value has, by law, been made up of 45 percent residential tax revenues and 55 percent commercial tax revenues, per the Gallagher Amendment, which was enacted into the Colorado Constitution that year. But residential property taxes will drop next year for the first time since 2003, according to the state Department of Local Affairs, from 7.96 percent of assessed value to 6.56 percent. New residential target percentages are set in non-assessment years. Due to the Denver-area increase in housing prices, along with a decrease in commercial values, residential property taxes have made up more than 45 percent, causing

a mandatory cutback. Prior to the Gallagher Amendment’s passage, residential assessment rates hit 21 percent. What is good news for homeowners is cause for concern for local governments. “For our district, it means we’re going to have a tight year,” said Diane Doney, chief financial officer of Littleton Public Schools. “I’m hoping to avoid any draconian cuts.” Doney said it is hard to tell yet, but the district may take a cut of about $500,000. The district’s budget is about $150 million. “$500,000 is not huge,” she said, but noted that an increase in class sizes could be necessary. South Suburban Parks and Recreation District Finance Director Steve Shipley said the district could lose out on $2 million, or approximately 10 percent of its property tax revenue. The only option, he said, would be to go to the voters to increase the mill levy. “It’ll be big,” he said. Shipley said that rural areas of the state will be affected more, however, and when home values are reassessed next year there could be a correction. “I’m expecting a big increase in assessment,” he said.

Low-income apartment complex will move forward BY KYLE HARDING KHARDING@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Littleton will process the site development plan and building application for an affordable apartment building downtown that has drawn the ire of its future neighbors, while still negotiating with the developer for a compromise on some elements of the project. Montana-based Summit Housing Group has already been approved by the Colorado Housing and Finance Authority to receive federal tax credits for Littleton Crossing, a proposed three-story, 63-unit complex at 5591 S. Nevada St. that would mainly house tenants who meet income restriction requirements. The tax credit allow the apartments to be rented at below-market rates. CHFA tax credit manager Tasha Weaver said the project has received an “unprecedented” amount of backlash from Littleton’s citizens, and Mayor Bruce Beckman has expressed dismay that such a project could be placed in Littleton without input from the city. Critics of the project have raised concerns about density, parking and neighborhood character. Deanna Cook, who lives near the project and opposes it, implored the council to do something to stop it at the Feb. 7 meeting. “We look to you to protect the rights and interests of your citizens,” she said. Councilmember Doug Clark says that the site was improperly rezoned to allow one-bedroom apartments. However, acting City Manager Mark Relph said that though the current staff interpretation of the city code

is that a piece of property must be at least four acres to rezone for planned development, that was not the staff interpretation in 2013, when the zoning was changed. Prior to that, the land had been planned for an expansion of the Nevada Place condos that lie across Nevada Street from it. “That original interpretation had been a pattern for many years,” Relph said. Old interpretation of the code also allowed a development to more easily meet open space and parking requirements. Jessica Alizadeh, an attorney with Denver firm Fairfield and Woods who represents Summit, said the developer has an “absolute legal right” to be issued a site development plan. “Zoning mistakes occur on nearly every application in nearly every municipality to some degree,” she said. Alizadeh said that Summit is willing to negotiate with the city for a compromise. Based on review of prior code interpretation and consultation with contract city attorney Ken Fellman, Relph changed the staff recommendation to the council on the issue at the meeting. In the documents he wrote for the staff packet, he recommended council direct staff to enter into negotiations with Summit and set a public hearing for March 7. However, at the meeting, he recommended that the council allow the project to move forward administratively and release a public summary of the legal issues it had to consider. “There’s a lot of misinformation that’s being discussed,” he said. “And this would be an opportunity to perhaps clarify that.”

Littleton will take more time to find city manager BY KYLE HARDING KHARDING@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Three finalists came to town to interview for the Littleton city manager post. City council has determined it will go with a fourth choice: none of the above. After the Feb. 2 interviews, the council elected not to offer a job to any of the three candidates, and voted at a Feb. 7 meeting to authorize Waters & Co. Executive Recruitment to search for more candidates. “We’ve determined there was not a good fit for Littleton for any of them,” Mayor Bruce Beckman said. The contract with Waters & Co. includes a guarantee that the company will work with the city until an appointment is made. The contract was for $26,150 for the initial search. Michael Penny was fired by council as city manager about eight months ago. Some members of council said Penny did not communicate well with council and did not run the city in a transparent manner. Public Works Director Mark Relph has been serving as acting city manager since July. Relph said he is not interest-

ed in the position on a permanent basis. After contracting with the search firm in September, the council selected six final candidates out of 29 applications and set a date for interviews, even after several councilmembers expressed concerns that none of the choices were particularly impressive. By the time of the interviews, all but one of the finalists had dropped out and two candidates who had initially not been among the top six were invited to interview. Though one candidate interviewed well, according to some councilmembers, city department heads expressed concerns to the council about his past. Some officials in Boulder, where Paul Fetherston was deputy city manager from 2008-14, characterized as “toxic” his relationships with city staff members and called him a micromanager. The finalists were Fetherston, the assistant city manager of Asheville, North Carolina; Thomas Thomas, former city manager of Rock Island, Illinois; and Larry Burks, assistant city administrator of Bellevue, Nebraska. Councilmember Bill Hopping said he is optimistic that stronger candidates will be found the second time around.

Some find park conditions are for the birds Canada geese and their droppings pose a dilemma for groundskeepers BY KYLE HARDING KHARDING@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

The south metro area’s parks and golf courses have become popular spots for Canada geese, frustrating many walkers, golfers and dog owners. “Redstone Park is disgusting right now,” Highlands Ranch resident Carrie Comeford wrote on the Facebook page Word of Mouth Highlands Ranch. “There are so many droppings around the playground there... unsavory.” Other than the geese themselves, the most visible sign of the birds is their waste blanketing the ground of parks, golf courses and sometimes, sidewalks. However, the geese, which are a protected species by both federal and state law, can also damage golf course greens by pecking through the surface to get to sand, which aids their digestion. So why do the geese like it here so much? “There are two things that attract them,” said Dave Brueggeman, parks manager for South Suburban Parks and Recreation District. “Bodies of water and open grass to graze on.” South Suburban manages more than 2,000 acres of open space across the south metro area — primarily in the Littleton, Lone Tree and west Centennial areas — with 74 parks and four golf courses. South Suburban controls geese by “hazing” them when they become a nuisance — using air horns or The Goosinator, a remote-controlled “predator,” to scare them away. But hazing must be done constantly in order to keep the geese at bay. “Resource-wise, it’s taxing,” Brueggeman said. The Highlands Ranch Metro District uses a variety of tactics to attempt to scare geese away from Redstone Park, its largest complex, including coyote cutouts, balloons, streamers and remote-controlled devices, according parks and parkways manager Dirk Ambrose.

A GAGGLE OF FACTS • Canada geese call Colorado home yearround, according to Colorado Parks and Wildlife, but fall and winter see increased numbers as migratory birds come through. • The geese are protected by both federal and state laws, but non-lethal control activities in which there is no direct contact can be done without permits. This includes hazing, or scaring the geese away. • Egg and nest control activities, including coating the eggs with oil to keep them from hatching, require permits. • Other methods to control geese on property, Parks and Wildlife says, can include landscape modification, such as planting trees, bushes or hedges between grassy areas and water, building barriers like fences or rock walls, not feeding them or using commercially available repellents. “Nothing seems to reliably work for very long, nor can we afford to have staff constantly move them along,” he said in an email. Jamie Noebel, community relations manager of the Highlands Ranch Community Association, said residents have complained about bird droppings in parks and on sidewalks. Ambrose said that goose complaints typically rise when the spring sports season comes around. “Although it sure seems that the goose activity is on the rise this year, we have no hard data to confirm that,” he said. Colorado Parks and Wildlife spokeswoman Jennifer Churchill said it is hard to tell if the goose population has risen in recent years, but, anecdotally, there does seem to be more lately. The fact that the metro area’s largest bodies of waters don’t freeze over during the winter is an attraction for the geese. “We have open water all winter long so we have a heck of a lot of geese,” she said. Tim Davis, superintendent at Englewood’s Broken Tee golf complex, said in an email that the problem seems bigger this year. “It seems like every other golf course superintendent I talk to is dealing with a bigger mess than usual,” he said.

Council conduct discussed in wake of controversy Speakers urge city officials to work on divisive issues BY TOM MUNDS TMUNDS@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Members of the Englewood City Council agreed during their Feb. 6 meeting to try to work together and put to rest the controversy triggered by the Jan. 17 proposal to replace Mayor Joe Jefferson, and Councilmember Steve Yates withdrew his pending motion to elect a new mayor and mayor pro tem. “We brought the issue forward because we as a council had struggled with issues of working together since the first time we met,” said Councilmember Amy Martinez, who had seconded Yates’ motion on Jan. 17. “I feel we are now at a good place so we can start fresh and do what it takes to work together.” Mayor Pro Tem Rick Gillit had similar comments and said he hopes all councilmembers can agree to disagree in a friendlier manner. Councilmember Linda Olson said she wants to see the issues resolved and hopes the council has adopted a determined effort to work together. Councilmember Laurett Barrentine said she talked to the mayor and knows he wants to take the high road

During the Feb. 6 Englewood City Council meeting, Gavin Letkomiller, 6, is held in the arms of his dad Jeremy so he could talk into the microphone as he urged the councilmembers to settle their issues and work together. Gavin was the youngest of the residents who spoke at the meeting on the same issue.

City seeks input on sex-offender residency limits Change would reduce some distance restrictions for those on registry BY TOM MUNDS TMUNDS@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Englewood City Council is urging residents to sign up and speak at a Feb. 21 public hearing on the proposal to change the distancing restrictions in the sex offender residency requirement law. The proposed change would create more areas in the city where registered sex offenders could live. Under current rules, registered sex offenders who were not already living in the city prior to a 2006 ordinance are essentially barred from residing anywhere in Englewood. The 2006 ordinance is the portion of Title 9 of the city code that prohibits registered sex offenders from living within 2,000 feet of schools, parks or playgrounds and within 1,000 feet of day care facilities, recreational centers or public swimming pools. The proposal that will be considered at the public hearing would set the distance at a uniform 1,000 feet from all listed facilities. The Feb. 21 city council meeting will begin at 7 p.m. and will be held

in the council chambers on the second floor of the Englewood Civic Center, 1000 Englewood Parkway. The public hearing will be part of the Feb. 21 city council meeting agenda. Residents who wish to comment about the proposal can sign up to speak the night of the meeting provided they arrive before the meeting starts. Those who can’t attend the meeting but want information included on the record should mail or e-mail it to the Englewood City Clerk’s office; to find the address or email address, go to englewoodgov.org and look for the “city clerk” tab under “inside city hall”. The ordinance to change the distance requirement was approved on first reading at the council’s Feb. 6 meeting by a vote of 5-1. Councilmember Laurett Barrentine voted against the ordinance because she said research has shown that sex offender residency restrictions do not improve community safety. “This is a change in distancing and I believe any distancing restriction is arbitrary,” she said during the Feb. 6 meeting. “I do not think the law is appropriate and hurts people who live in our community.” Mayor Joe Jefferson said he is looking forward to the public hearing. “After all of the data and infor-

mation we have heard that residency restrictions don’t work, I wonder if keeping sex offender residency restrictions make sense,” he said. The city’s sex offender residency requirements have been discussed in council meetings for almost a year. Englewood residents have repeatedly urged repeal of the ordinance as have residents from a number of other communities. The majority of the comments urged the council to rescind the ordinance but a few residents wanted the ordinance to remain as it is. The sex offender residency restriction imposed by the 2006 ordinance gives the police department the authority to require any convicted sex offender to move out of Englewood within 30 days or face arrest. Englewood is one of six Colorado communities with sex offender residency restrictions. Late last year, attorney Alison Ruttenberg, representing plaintiffs Brian Brockhausen and Allen Toner, took the issue to U.S. District Court, but the request for a temporary restraining order and a permanent restraining order were both denied. After the judge’s decision rejecting the request for a permanent restraining order, Ruttenberg said the next step is to take the lawsuit against Englewood and the ordinance to trial.

concerns that had been happening for more than a year without airing the council’s dirty laundry in public. “I was concerned we weren’t getting things done because of we were not following the council rules, so I made the Jan. 17 motion,” he said. “Since then we have talked about resolving the issues. I think we can get past them and work together to move our city forward.” The agreement to try to work together came during council comments portion of the meeting that followed residents speaking out on a number of issues. Twenty-one resident made comments and almost half came to ask council to work better together. Residents voiced concern that the issues behind the Jan. 17 motion hampered the council’s effectiveness and urged members to resolve them. Several residents spoke in support of the job Jefferson was doing. One of those supporting Jefferson and the speaker who got applause from the audience was Gavin Letkomiller. The 6-year-old was held up by his dad Jeremy so he could speak into the microphone. “I like (Mayor) Joe. He pats me on the head when he sees me and that makes me happy,” the boy said. “I know he does good stuff here (at the council meetings) to make people happy too.”

WHAT’S THE HARM?

Davis said that Broken Tee currently uses pyrotechnic devices to scare the geese away, but that doesn’t prevent them from landing on the course in the first place. Flashing strobe lights help deter them from nesting on the course’s ponds. Brueggeman said another thing that South Suburban can do is to control nests, with permitting from Parks and Wildlife. This is done by coating the eggs with corn oil, preventing them from hatching. The district is legally permitted to oil 200 eggs per year. An alternative method to controlling geese that has emerged is to scare them away with trained dogs. Tim Eubank, owner Littleton’s of Up & Away Goose Control, said that border collies are particularly effective because their behavior mimics that of the Arctic fox, a natural predator. Eubank said he currently contracts with 12 apartment complexes, includ-

Goose waste can pose potential health hazards to people and pets. According to the Internet Center for Wildlife Damage Management — a nonprofit organization run by professors from several universities — parasites and bacteria can be carried in goose feces. E. coli, salmonella and listeria are among them. They can also carry viruses, including avian influenza. However, the center cautions that the presence of a disease does not necessarily translate into a public health threat.

Tri-County Health Department offering coupons for radon testing

NEWS IN A HURRY

HOW TO GET A FREE COUPON

BY ALEX DEWIND ADEWIND@COLORADOCOMMUNITY

Kari Crist recently had her basement checked for radon, a naturally occurring radioactive gas. Crist, of Highlands Ranch, was spending more than 15 hours, seven days a week in an art studio in her basement. Her husband’s office is also located in that part of the home. The level of radon in Crist’s basement was three times the limit. The Environmental Protection Agency recommends fixing homes that have levels at or above 4pCi/L. “Not something to mess with,” Crist wrote on a Facebook page called Word of Mouth Highlands Ranch. “And if you’ve already had it checked, check it again. It can turn up later.” To encourage homeowners to test their homes for radon, Tri-County Health Department — which serves more than 1.4 million people in Adams, Arapahoe and Douglas counties — is providing coupons for free radon test kits. “Although there is no safe level of radon, a simple, inexpensive test will tell you if the home you live in or are intending to buy needs to be fixed,” a media release from Tri-County Health Department says. “It is easy to test your home and radon levels can be reduced with a radon reduction system.” Radon, a radioactive gas that forms naturally when radioactive metals break down in rocks, soil and groundwater, is the second leading cause of lung cancer after cigarette smoking, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. People can be exposed to radon primarily from breathing radon in air that comes through cracks and gaps in buildings and homes, the CDC says.

COUPON QUANTITIES ARE LIMITED. Call first to reserve or to see if test kits are still available. The four Tri-County Health Department locations are: Administration/Greenwood Village: 6162 S. Willow Drive, 720200-1670 Castle Rock: 4400 Castleton Court, 303-663-7650 Aurora: 15400 E. 14th Place, 303-363-3055 Commerce City: 4201 E. 72nd Ave., 303-288-6816 According to the Tri-County Health Department, in Colorado approximately 500 people die annually from radon-induced lung cancer. In Douglas County, 39.6 percent of household radon tests were above the recommended EPA action limit, as in Crist’s situation. In Adams County that rate was 24.2 percent and 44.4 percent in Arapahoe County. Steven Chevalier, environmental health manager at Tri-County Health Department, recently bought a new home that had an average level of radon of 6.4 pCi/L. According to Tri-County Health Department, that number is comparable to having more than 200 chest X-rays every year. “Investing in a radon mitigation system for $850 is a small price to pay for the health of our family,” Chevalier said in the media release. “The average price of a radon mitigation system in Colorado is $1,200.” According to the EPA, the primary method used to reduce radon in a home is a vent pipe system and fan, which pulls radon from beneath the house and vents it to the outside. The system does not require major changes to a home, the EPA says, and is more efficient if foundation cracks and other openings are sealed.

Bill on gun training for school employees passes state Senate A separate bill on concealed carry in schools is killed in the House BY ALEX DEWIND ADEWIND@COLORADOCOMMUNITY

A bill that would allow teachers and other public school employees who have the proper permit to carry a handgun on campus after completing safety training has passed the state Senate. Meanwhile, a measure that would have allowed anyone with a concealed carry permit to carry a handgun on public school grounds was defeated in the House. Both bills were introduced and sup-

ported by Republicans, who control the Senate, but opposed by Democrats, who hold a majority in the House. Senate Bill 17-005 is sponsored by Senate Majority Leader Chris Holbert, R-Parker, and House Minority Leader Patrick Neville, R-Castle Holbert Rock. It would allow a county sheriff to provide a safety-training course to any employee of any public elementary, middle, junior high or high school who has a permit to carry a concealed handgun, a summary of the bill says. Once that Neville training is completed, the employee would be permitted to

carry the handgun on campus. It was approved 18-17, a party-line vote, on Feb. 6. It will now face an uphill battle in the House. Holbert said his bill encourages a greater level of training for all people who are armed in public schools, including law enforcement and staff who are hired as private security guards. As part of the bill, a county sheriff would consult with the school district in the sheriff ’s county to establish a curriculum for the safety-training course. Individual school districts would need to approve the program set up by the sheriff and would be able to cap the number of employees who are permitted to carry a gun at each school. House Bill 17-1036, which would have changed the law to allow anyone

with a concealed carry permit to bring a handgun on campus, was voted down on a 6-3 party-line vote in a House committee on Feb. 8. Its sponsors were Patrick Neville and state Rep. Kim Ransom, R-Acres Green, and state Sen. Tim Neville, R-Jefferson County. “I believe teachers should focus on teaching and nurturing our children, not act as armed security,” state Rep. Susan Lontine, D-Denver, told the committee, according to a news release. Chris Gdowski, superintendent for Adams 12 Five Star Schools, said arming his employees is not something he’s interested in doing. His district has plenty of safety protocols in place.

Texting and driving bill advances in Colorado Legislature STAFF REPORT

A bill to increase penalties for drivers convicted of distracted driving related to cellphone use passed the state Senate’s State, Veterans & Military Affairs Committee on Feb. 8 by a 4-1 vote. The committee amended some of the

bill’s language and changed penalties assessed to drivers in an effort to gain more bipartisan support. The bill, sponsored by Sen. Lois Court, D-Denver, originally included a fine of $500 and five points on the driver’s license for a first offense and a $750 fine and six points for a second

or subsequent offense. Current law requires a $50 fine and one point for a first offense and a $100 fine and one point for subsequent offenses. After it was rewritten, the bill calls for a penalty of a $300 fine and four points on the driver’s license per occurrence. State Rep. Jovan Melton,

D- Aurora, is sponsoring the bill in the House. The next step for the bill is a vote by the Senate Finance Committee, scheduled for Feb. 16. Court is confident the bill will advance to the full Senate thereafter and move to the House by the end of the month.

WINNING WORDS

T

his week I would like to share a quick story with you about a boy and his journey and understanding of the bigger picture while finding purpose along the way to becoming a man. His story starts out very sadly as his father dies in a car accident when the boy was only 5 years old. He had a brother and two sisters, so his father’s death left his mom alone to raise four children on her own. Friends and neighbors helped out as much as they could and were around often enough in the beginning, but as time went on, they had to tend to their own lives and families. Extended family played a huge part of helping to raise the young boy and his siblings; in particular, his grandparents

were extremely loving and supportive. A few years went by and the young boy’s mother did remarry. However, it was an unhealthy marriage and there was plenty of trouble and hardships for the family. After enduring the marriage for 10 years his mother and stepfather divorced. Although difficult to get by and divorce is never easy, it was healthier for everyone. And within another two years, his mother remarried once again. This was also unfortunately a short-lived marriage as the boy, who by now was a teenager, watched as his mother’s newest husband and the family’s newest stepfather passed away unexpectedly one day while hanging the Christmas lights on the outside of the house.

Throughout this young man’s life, his grandparents had raised him in the church. However, as his life seemed to be filled with more struggles and misery than he felt he could handle, he was often conflicted with how he felt about the church and God. It seemed as though his friends and neighbors and cousins and other families had “normal” lives compared to his own life and he wondered for years why this was happening to him and his family. His patience eventually gave in to anger and resentment and he found himself shaking his fist at the sky and cursing and yelling at God. As time went on, he eventually found his way SEE NORTON, P13

Hey, speeders: There’s nothing pedestrian about this concern QUIET DESPERATION

live on a street named after a sobbing tree. The street is a shortcut to a nearby high school. The posted speed limit is 25 mph. But you wouldn’t know it, mornings, when the teenagers are on their way. Maybe they’re just late for school. I wonder if they would rather be late for school, or headed to court, to appear in front of a judge on reckless driving and manslaughter charges? My street is lined with children — little children. Now and then, they get away from a parent. My street is lined with dog owners, who like to walk their dogs without the fear of turning into a couple of asphalt scabs. There’s one old guy who walks his incontinent dachshund off and on all day long.

He’s the neighborhood Grinch, but he loves his dog. The two of them are a familiar sight on my street. They don’t walk very far on each trip. The dog is old and has very short legs. In the morning this is what they hear: Whoosh. Whoosh. Whoosh. Whoosh. Teenagers, your first driver’s license, loud music, and obliviousness to the law all go together. And that’s fine. Take it out somewhere else. Just not up and down subdivision streets that are lined with children and dogs. John Kay is 72. He was born Joachim Fritz Krauledat in East Prussia, Germany (now a part of Russia). He and his family made their way to Canada, and then to the United States. He wears sunglasses, indoors and outdoors,

all day long. Kay is legally blind. The punch line is that Kay and his band Steppenwolf recorded a song that you could be listening to right now, as background for this column. “Born to Be Wild” is everywhere. Maybe you first heard it when you watched “Easy Rider” in 1969. Maybe you heard it again during the Coen brothers’ 2017 Super Bowl commercial. It was a teenager’s anthem when I was a teenager, and it still is. I was not, however, born to be wild. At the age of 15, I turned 35. I didn’t want it, it just happened. There was something about a murder. I was a witness. I had to sit up straight and talk like an adult for the first time. In 2001, I was shown a transcript of my SEE SMITH, P35

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Tonsing will be missed Thank you for the thoughtful obituary about Robert Tonsing by Sonya Ellingboe. Former and current Littleton staff did a great job highlighting why Bob Tonsing was known as the “Father of Light Rail.” Bob’s work was key to securing Federal funds for the Southwest Light Rail in the late 1990s and to the 2004 passage of FasTracks. I had the pleasure of working with Bob starting when I first was elected to the Littleton City Council in 1987.

In that capacity, I understood how vital Bob’s work was in the mid-to-late 1980s because it ensured that Littleton got on the funding list in the first place. Bob would report at council meetings (with obvious relish!) about the intricate bureaucratic process of getting the go-ahead from the old Urban Mass Transit Administration. During these reports, I could not help but marvel that any council member would invest so much time understanding this arcane process. But Bob’s attention

and willingness to roll up his sleeves paid off. This was especially true as the heavy-hitter Denver Tech Center business leaders tried to push the Southeast Line ahead of the Southwest Line, setting off an ugly fight. It was Bob’s deep understanding of the process — in addition to his toughness — that helped us prevail. Bob Tonsing served the Littleton community and the entire region in an exemplary way. He will be sorely missed. Patricia Cronenberger Littleton

Time for better health care fix The guest column by Joe Sammen demands a response. I find it very ironic he cites studies that the repeal of the ACA without replacement would lead to millions uninsured and replacement must contain certain protections. Where was this concern when millions lost coverage at the implementation of the ACA in the first place? The implementation of the ACA had to rely on deception (Pelosi: “We have to pass the law to find out what’s in the law”), and lies

(Obama: “If you like your plan you can keep you plan; if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor”) to become law in the first place. Yes, pre-existing coverage and adult children staying on parents’ plans until 26 are the good parts of the ACA. And they should be part of any new replacement plan. But the answer was to not upend coverage for 100 percent of the population to solve a problem for 10-15 per-

Here are a few tips for finding the truth and taking action

O

ver the last few weeks, I’ve received numerous questions about what’s really happening in our government, and what can we do to get more involved. What’s an executive order and how does it work? Where are the checks and balances, and how do they work or not work? What’s all the fuss about Cabinet nominations? How do I get my voice heard with my elected officials? How do I find out the real truth behind “alternative facts,” fake news, and social media opinions and find resources that are factual? Because most of us haven’t had any education about our government since high school civics class or have any experience within the government, these are really good questions that are now being asked by people in all walks of life. There is now cause (and for some, alarm) for all of us to be educated about how our government and politi-

back to church again, and he actually volunteered as one of the youth directors of the church. Every Friday night he would help the youth pastor lead the group. The youth group was open to everyone, not just members of that particular church. One Friday night a young girl showed up to attend youth group. She kept to herself most nights and was very quiet. And then one night, an opportunity came up that allowed the young man and the new girl attending the youth group meetings to talk. And as she shared her story, in that instant, the young man knew immediately that everything that had happened to him as he was growing up did not happen to punish him, but rather to prepare him for something bigger in his life. He was being prepared for this very moment with the young girl, and as he would find out later in life, he was also being prepared for many other opportunities just like it. You see, the young girl shared with him that she was feeling bad, she was feeling hurt, and she was feeling sad and angry all at the same time. She had lost her mom, her father remarried, he later divorced, and then remarried again, and then unfortunately divorced again. She felt it was somehow her fault. She shared that her friends all seemed to live “normal” lives and seemed so much more stable. She was tired of the way people looked at her and her family. She felt like she didn’t belong.

cal system work and how we can influence them, or even revolutionize them. So since you’ve asked, I’ve decided to host a town hall to help answer your questions from an insider’s perspective. It will be scheduled soon, but for now, here are a few tips Linda Newell and resources you can access right now: • Find your electeds: You have city, county, state and federal representatives who work for you. Know them. To find yours you can go to www.votesmart.org. It’s not a perfect site, but you can find yours at all levels of government from entering in your 9-digit zip code. • Watch your electeds in action: Sign up for their email newsletter so

As the young man listened, with his own heart breaking as he was hearing his own life story played back to him, he was able to look her in the eye and not say, “I think I know how you feel.” Instead he was able to say, “I know exactly how you feel.” He shared his own story and there was immediate trust amongst them. The young girl continued attending youth group, made many friends, and her own family life stabilized as she grew and matured as a person and in her faith. And again, in that one instant, in that very moment, a boy, turned teenager, turned young man, realized that there really is a bigger picture, there really is a purpose, he was not here by accident, and that his own life story, even as tragic as it may have seemed, was leading him and preparing him for something far greater in life. And sometimes it takes years, maybe even many years for us to get past the anger, frustration, and pain before we can see and understand it all. We just have to be open to seeing it, or we may end up missing the opportunity to see the bigger picture and finding our own purpose. How about you? Is something happening right now that is confusing, frustrating, and making it hard for you to see the bigger picture? I really would love to hear all about it at gotonorton@ gmail.com. And when we can look through and even past the tragedies and triumphs of life so that we can see the bigger picture, it really will be a better than good week.

you can see what they’re working on and when they’re hosting town halls. Not all officials have town halls or if so, not often, so you need to show up at those to give them your thoughts. (Remember to ensure them that you’re a constituent, you’re NOT being paid to be there, and you vote.) • See how your electeds vote: You can use www.smartvote.org for this, but there are also two other sites at the state level (where many of our pertinent laws are drafted) that can help you — http://leg.colorado.gov/ or a new site just recently launched: https://digitdemos.com. • Communicate with your electeds: Let them know how you feel about topics, issues, or bills moving through the process BEFORE they vote. Send them an email, call them, or tell them in person, if possible. But when you do, in the first line, remember to mention that you’re a constituent so they’ll pay more attention, hopefully. Hint: Honey

works better than vinegar. Much of the time, the first people to hear or see those are volunteer or very low-paid interns, and they’re just trying to do their job as best as they can, like you. • Biggest tip of the day: In order to influence effectively, you need to be educated before you can advocate. Take the time. Your health or life may depend on it. Wish I had more space and you had more time, but for now, try some of these, and look for more tips next time on finding factual news. And look for my town hall and documentary coming soon! Linda Newell is termed out as the state senator of Senate District 26 and is now educating people on how to understand and influence their government. Look for her upcoming documentary to be released soon. She may be reached at senlindanewell@gmail.com or senlindanewell.com or @sennewell on Twitter.

NOT JUST FOR YOUNG FAMILIES Young families are not the only Little Free Library lovers. Josh Beers, 17, from Golden employed his Boy Scout troup to build some for the community. Each year, Boy Scouts plan, fund and complete service projects to earn their Eagle Scout badges. Josh’s mom told him about a Little Free Library she came across on her walk and, after some research, Josh decided to make a few for his service project.

MAKE YOUR OWN ganized members from Troop 130 in Golden to construct three little libraries. “I organized everything and taught everyone what to do,” Josh said. “It was really easy.”

On littlefreelibrary.org, a variety of alreadybuilt library hutches are available for purchase. For those interested in building a Little Free Library, the website offers resources, support and inspiration.

After planting the libraries in front of a church, an apartment complex and within a community, Josh found that each library is sustaining itself.

In addition, you can find the Little Free Library nearest to you by going to the same website and clicking on “map.”

one has put something in there that she wants,” Fernando said. “I love to see that it started an enthusiasm for reading in her.” Fernando also is excited about the response from his neighbors. “While I was out there with the girls measuring, people would stop and ask what we were doing,” Fernando said. “It started so many conversations.” Conversations at the box go beyond a friendly “hello.” He finds the Little Free Library to be a way for people to learn about the diversities found in his own neighborhood. He believes it brings people together with similarities. “When we engage in these projects with our families, it encourages the American values that we share,” Fernando said. “The core of reading is

education. As a society, we are really quick to point out the differences of us all. But if we focus on the love of the things we share in common, like the love to read and educate ourselves — that is a unifier.” The Little Free Library is, at its core, a small-scale neighborhood book exchange. A structure sheltering between 20 to 60 books is built or purchased by a community member and planted in the community. Whoever comes across a Little Free Library is welcome to either take a book or leave a book. Margret Aldrich, media and programming director at the Little Free Library nonprofit organization, based in Hudson, Wisconsin, said the library becomes self-sustaining. All family-friendly reading materials

“I liked the idea of a self-sufficient library,” Josh said. “It was like an experiment.”

In late January, the Little Free Library started the Action Book Club. This club encourages participants to engage with their community by reading books on timely topics, engaging in lively conversations and committing to community service projects. Different book clubs can communicate online. To sign up an Action Book Club of your own, visit littlefreelibrary.org/actionbookclub.

are welcome in the exchange. Self-help, Westerns, science fiction, picture books and many more genres are encouraged to circulate through the libraries. The first Little Free Library was built in Hudson, Wisconsin, in 2009 by Tod Bol in tribute to his book-loving mother. The Little Free Library became a nonprofit in 2012.

Swallow Hill gives new songwriters a chance to shine ne of the trickiest things about being a musician is getting your music out there where people can actually

hear it. And while there’s a slew of online platforms to host music for free, that doesn’t mean people will hear it. That’s where Swallow Hill Music comes in. For the ninth year, the organization is hosting its annual Young Writers Competition for performers in middle and high school. “Submissions have to be original lyrics that can be performed live,” said Cheri Gonzales, director of Swallow Hill’s school operations. “The biggest prize for our winners is the opportunity to perform at our venues, and to have some time in a professional recording studio.” But for Thomas Koenigs, who won the contest in 2015, there was a greater prize. “Winning wasn’t the most important thing, although it was very gratifying,” he remembered. “For me, the best part was meeting all these people, and making some crazy important connections.” Swallow Hill is accepting submis-

countries. Colorado is home to more than 600 Little Free Libraries. According to Aldrich, the libraries become community hubs. There is no style guide dictating the appearance of a Little Free Library. Though the usual structure resembles a birdhouse or a dollhouse, people are encouraged to be creative. There are Little Free Libraries y that are brightly painted or shaped like robots, police-call boxes, whales, log cabins and rowboats. A $40 registration fee puts the library on the website’s official community map and database. The company sends an

sions until 5 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 24. Gonzales said the nonprofit usually receives about 20 to 30 submissions, and from there 10 contestants are selected to perform live on April 1, at the Museum of Contemporary Art in downtown Denver. Clarke Reader There are no genre limitations for entry, and over the years participants have included a cappella, solo singer-songwriters, duos and groups. “It’s really whatever the performer feels is the best way to express themselves,” she said. “We’ve had people who take the Bob Dylan, solo acoustic guitar route, to multi-instrumentalists who are able to pull off really dynamic performances.” For Koenigs, music was a way to channel his interest in writing and appreciation for artists like Dylan and Creedence Clearwater Revival. “I’d taken some rock classes, but had only written some basic chord progressions,” he said. “It was nerve-

official “Little Free Library” sign and an information and resource packet. The trend also helps the homeless, who may not have access to books at conventional libraries because they have no address, Aldrich said. Love at first sight Five years ago, Todd Walsh, his wife and their two daughters spent a vacation visiting friends. During a walk, they discovered a Little Free Library. The family instantly fell in love with the idea. Three summers later, Walsh was hammering the nails into his own Little Free Library for his home on West Applewood Knolls Drive in Lakewood. “Where we live in Lakewood, our house is right on the corner and it is a popular route to a park,” Walsh said.

CLARKE’S ALBUM OF THE WEEK Selection: Ryan Adams’ “Prisoner” released on Pax Am/Blue Note records. Review: Adams’ first album of new material since 2014, “Prisoner” is a moving and heartfelt exploration of loves ending and beginning, at least partly inspired by his divorce from Mandy Moore in 2015. The album showcases some of Adams’ best and most devastating songwriting, and anyone wracking to get up and perform something I had written, but everyone was so friendly, and helped me get better.” The professional performance and recording opportunities are a great boon to its winners, Gonzales said, but any occasion to play music live is a plus. “For a lot of contestants, they’re just getting started in the professional music process,” she said. “Giving them a chance to put their work out there is very important, and we make sure everyone is very encouraging throughout the process.” Currently, Koenigs is studying English literature, but the people he met in the competition are still a part of his life.

“We have a lot of foot traffic.” The Slater Elementary School teacher only had time to work on the project while his daughters Maya, 6, and Nora, 4, were napping. While working on the project, Walsh’s neighbor walked across the street to see what was going on. The two discussed the Little Free Library and decided that their neighborhood needed not one, but two of the book hubs. Walsh completed both projects after a month of work. One is dedicated solely to housing children’s books while the other, directly across the street, holds books for teen and adult readers. “It has been amazing and we have loved it,” Walsh said. “It has been a great way for us to meet people. It is a great conversation starter. We watch

who has suffered a broken heart while find a line or two that hits like a punch to the gut. But for both Adams and the listener, there’s also beauty and release to be found in music. Favorite song: “Shiver and Shake” Best homage to Bruce Springsteen’s “Tunnel of Love”: “Tightrope” “The whole environment for this was so supportive,” he said. “There’s no downside to taking a chance and trying this.” For more information, and submission guidelines, visit www.swallowhillmusic.org/community/young-songwriters-competition.

from the windows and love seeing families on bike rides stop and take books.” Walsh did not stop building at two little libraries. The Slater Elementary sixthgraders, as a tradition, leave a contribution to their school before advancing to middle school. They commissioned Walsh in 2016 to make a Little Free Library for the school. To this day, passersby knock on Walsh’s door and ask him about the little library outside his home. Many people ask him to make a little library for their neighborhoods miles away. “It really is a conversation starter,” Walsh said. “Normally someone might say ‘hello,’ but now we have gotten to know so many of our neighbors because we have something to talk about.”

Littleton church is venue for free monthly dinners Meals are cooked from scratch; reservations aren’t needed BY SONYA ELLINGBOE SELLINGBOE@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Foods are cooked from scratch by volunteers and the menu differs monthly, as First Presbyterian Church Littleton launches a monthly free community dinner on the last Tuesday of each month, inviting folks from the neighborhood and beyond. “We don’t know how many will show up,” Lynda Kizer said. “We’ll cook for 100.” They have arranged to give surplus food away, so it isn’t wasted. Chairperson Lynda Kizer said that each dinner would be at 6 p.m. and reservations are not necessary. She hope the January guests (about 30) will tell their friends as they said they would, so the program will grow. She is proud that they are able to have colorful tablecloths and real dishes and silverware. The large church kitchen has been remodeled recently and has a long counter that makes serving easier for the willing volunteers, who take turns cooking and serving. Kizer said she has about 25 volunteers who help cook, serve and clean up. The tasty January meatballs, sau-

Volunteers at First Presbyterian Church Littleton wait for dinner guests to arrive on Jan. 31. On the right is chairperson Lynda Kizer SONYA ELLINGBOE

sage, spaghetti and salad dinner was prepared by active church members David and Stacey LeMay from old family recipes, and dessert cookies were baked by various congregation members. Guests were invited to enjoy seconds and take to-go boxes if they wished. The atmosphere was friendly and relaxed as table conversation from kids, parents and seniors filled the room.

“There is always a bowl of fresh fruit,” Kizer said. When Kizer first had the idea, they started with quarterly dinners and a team of five. She and others funded the start-up and now have money from the church’s mission fund. This year, friends contributed a check that will probably cover the whole year. “Cooking from scratch really saves money and we got the plates tax-free.

The congregation donated the silverware. It’s fun to see the volunteers — I practically had to beat them off with a stick,” Kizer said with a laugh. The last Tuesday seemed like a good day since budgets may get tight at the end of the month. The 6 p.m. Feb. 28 menu will include hardy chicken stew, cheese biscuits, two salads, fruit and of course, homemade cookies!

‘The Zeus Problem’ came to stage via winding path Buntport started with one plan before switching to another

BY SONYA ELLINGBOE SELLINGBOE@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

The Buntport company explains in the beginning of the program that members had started writing a different play, collaboratively, as they always do.

“THE ZEUS PROBLEM: A DARK COMEDY ABOUT A GOD AND THE MESS HE MADE” plays through Feb. 25 at Buntport Theater, 717 Lipan St., Denver. Performances: 8 p.m. Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays; 3 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 19. Tickets: $18, advance, $20 at the door.

Besides the current climate, we took

I work for Colorado Community Media, a progressive community media company, which publishes 18 community newspapers and websites in the Denver Metro area. Last week, we added our 18th, the Denver Herald-Dispatch, which is our first legal newspaper in Denver County. With the addition of the Herald-Dispatch, I can now publish legal notices in SIX counties with our community newspapers:

inspiration from ‘Prometheus Bound,’ a story of what happens when someone defies the king of the gods.” They were joined by “the incomparable Jim Hunt” as the creative process moved forward, becoming “The Zeus Problem,” which will play through Feb. 25 at Denver’s Buntport Theater. Looking spiffy in a purple suit, Zeus (Jim Hunt) struts in front of the audience, backed by a black curtain — asking if they like his suit! He then gets fussy — “You need me, but I most definitely don’t need you … You’re like a bunch of disgusting artichokes!” He goes on to explain that he “needs new suits all the time … worship causes bloating … The rise (front seam where zipper is located) is not easily altered … I start there and build the whole suit around it …” He soon changes into baggy sweatpants. We hear dramatic, loud, stormy music and Zeus (who is given to throwing lightning bolts around) opens the curtain, revealing the scene. The stage is dominated by a huge wooden table, where Io (Erin Rollman), Prometheus (Erik Edborg) and a noisy, fussy eagle, in an outstanding costume (Hannah Duggan), are gathered at one end. American writer Thoreau is at the far end, translating from Aeschylus’ account of “Prometheus Bound.” Thoreau is annoyed that their words don’t rhyme! What is this, he wonders. “A dinner buffet? Liver buffet?” Zeus responds, “You didn’t receive a formal invitation? Did anybody? … Let’s play a game …”

Prometheus is a god who crossed Zeus’ wishes and stole fire from the home of the gods to give to the humans he was charged with creating out of clay. He is punished by being chained to a rock and the eagle keeps eating his liver, which keeps rejuvenating. “No onions!” the eagle complains. “Ever done a liver detox?” Zeus gave Prometheus’ brother the trouble-making Pandora, with her box of troubles. “That was not nice,” Io observes. Prometheus periodically quotes from Aeschylus’ poetic account of the story. “I’m so hungry,” Io keeps complaining — “I think I’ll just place an order!” (Io was an Argive princess whom Zeus lusted after. To hide her from the jealous goddess Hera, Zeus turned Io into a white heifer.) “People don’t deal with me — I deal with them!” Zeus declares. “I want this story to get told without casting a negative light on yours truly.” “Aeschylus’ account doesn’t include Zeus — or an eagle,” Thoreau states. More lightning here! “When you fill your bellies, you forget about the gods,” Zeus complains — and with that, he closes the curtain on the others, telling the audience, “I don’t think you’re artichokes …” This most clever crew offers their view inspired by the daily headlines, enhanced by lightning bolts and artichokes. A quick mythology refresher would add to enjoyment perhaps, but it’s not necessary.

Mother-daughter duo explore issues surrounding end of life Libby and Patty Bortz give presentation at Mizel Center BY SONYA ELLINGBOE SELLINGBOE@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

“Sooner or later, I’m going to lose my parents,” said Patty Bortz by way of introduction in a discussion of end-of-life issues. “Let me introduce my mother, Libby Bortz, mentor and best friend, who serves on many boards, including hospital ethics and admissions committee for the medical school … (she is well-known in Littleton, her longtime hometown for work on housing, including the Libby Bortz Assisted Living Center, political involvement, service -to Arapahoe Community College and much more). Libby spoke of her daughter: “mother, lawyer, serves on many boards, school activist … She suggested this presentation,” which they have named “The Last Chapter.” They spoke at the Mizel Arts and Culture Center in Denver, a Jewish Family Service program, on Jan. 10 and plan to make further presentations in the metro area “Friends say they and their parents are not willing to talk (about end-oflife issues),” the octogenarian Libby said. “Why is it important? Are there resources? The most challenging parts of this stage include pain, loss of en-

ergy, feeling invisible, divesting things, finding clothes that fit. I will need to move out of my home, funerals, losing the ability to participate. When I was younger, I created organizations. Now, I’m more of a passenger.” Libby continued: “I’m not afraid of dying, makeup is optional, investment in health insurance is paying off — How lucky I am that saying goodbye will be so hard.” Patty picked up the train of thought: “At 58, I’m caring for my father, who is confused and struggling. I’ve watched my parents give up skiing. (Libby only last year.) My parents have lost a lot of friends … spend a lot of emotional and physical energy fighting (aging).” “I thought I could direct my life by having that conversation now, help

avoid possible conflict. I have seen families fight about `what mother would have wanted’ and fall apart — about life support, for example. Then depression can be somewhat diminished and we can focus on the living we’ve done,” Libby responded. Patty acknowledged “a real sense of relief in sharing a plan for the future. We will be better able to handle it. I will be a better support.” Libby drew laughs when she said, “Put me in a lovely piece of pottery and keep me where the action is …” “How will I divide with my brother?” Patty bounced back, then asked, “What matters most now? As different from 20 years ago?” Reply: “What matters most is that I have your help, have my friends, not suffer much …” “The role I play — I can’t give as much time as you’d like,” Patty observed. “With my own mother, I was part of the `sandwich generation. Patty, I know you have your own needs, family, I can’t promise `no guilt,” but it’s OK.” They recommended a book called “The Other Talk,” from AARP, a serious talk with one’s doctor, which Medicare pays for, a look at alternatives to driving (Uber, Lyft). Writing may be easier than talking, as in “What matters the most to me is … What do you want the most from my home — i.e, a piece of art?” “It’s never too soon — Boomers should talk to their teens,” Patty said.

Meanwhile, at the Class 4A meet Feb. 11 at the Eldora Pool Ice Center in Fort Collins, Heritage junior Kylie Andrews won two events, helping her team finish fourth, and now owns three state championships in the past two seasons. She won the 5A 100-

yard freestyle last year. Fossil Ridge won the 5A state title with 390 points, followed by Fairview at 334. Arapahoe broke a tie with Regis Jesuit by coming in second in the 400-yard freestyle relay, which was the last event of the meet. The Warriors had 221 points and Regis 219. “We were state champions in 2001 and 2002, and I can’t say enough about what a special team this was,” Arapahoe coach Mike Richmond said. “I’m very happy with third. Coming in numbers wise based on seeding it would be tough to catch Fairview and Fossil Ridge. It’s based on times. “It’s always exciting to get to state with these girls. It was an exceptional experience and something they will always remember... We were tied with Regis, so whoever won the relay was going to get third.” SEE SWIMMING, P26

Heritage junior Kylie Andrews won two state titles on Feb. 11 at the Class 4A State Swim and Dive Championships at the Eldora Pool Ice Center in Fort Collins.

STANDOUT PERFORMERS Kassie Rembisz, basketball, sophomore, Legend: She dominated the boards in the Titans’ 73-22 win over Northglenn on Feb. 6.

Kylie Andrews, swimming, junior, Heritage: She won the individual titles in the 100yard freestyle and 100 backstroke at the Class 4A State Swimming Championships. Delaney Bernard, basketball, senior, Cher-

remember years ago, 29 to be exact, being in the Denver North gym for a memorable night of high school basketball. Manual’s Chucky Sproling set a singleOVERTIME game state record by scoring 74 points against the Vikings. Alameda’s boys basketball coach Henry Aguilar probably won’t forget the evening he spent in the North gym Feb. 6, when the Pirates Jim Benton outlasted North, 95-93, in a four-overtime, non-league game. “It was like playing two games, it was a long night,” said Aguilar, who assumed the Alameda head coaching reins less than three weeks before the start of the season. “The win kind of helps bring us together. We’ve had a rough season. Four starters fouled out of the game against North and everybody was completely exhausted. We had to play the fourth overtime with four sophomores and one senior starter. That was tough.” The win helped boost Alameda’s overall record to 9-10. “The first overtime, they were up by two and our senior guard Anthony Lawson drove to the basket and hit two clutch free throws to send it to the second overtime,” Aguilar explained. “In the second overtime, we had a two-point lead with like 20 seconds left and a younger guy took a shot when he wasn’t supposed to. The North point guard took it all the way and got a layup and sent it to the third overtime. “We hit two free throws and sent it to the last overtime. In the fourth overtime, four starters fouled out so we had four reserves. A couple of our younger players stepped up. A sophomore, Domonic Creazzi, hit a clutch three, we got fouled a couple times and made some free throws and ended up winning.” Heritage hires Eberle Heritage has hired Hannah Eberle as its new volleyball coach. Eberle is a Ralston Valley graduate and a former Mustangs junior varsity coach. She replaces Jana Barrett, who stepped away after compiling a 11-330 record over the past two seasons.

Warriors edge Bruins in hard-fought game Arapahoe beats Cherry Creek with 23-point fourth quarter BY TOM MUNDS TMUNDS@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

It is said that team records in rivalry games are just dried ink on the page, and that was the case Feb. 8 as Arapahoe, with a 7-12 record, outscored host Cherry Creek, with its 13-4 record, for a 67-63 victory in the Centennial League boys basketball game. The Bruins got ahead early but Arapahoe came back. The Warriors put up 23 points in the final quarter to take the lead for good. Arapahoe coach Brad Jensen said the Warriors badly needed a win. “We played well the whole game and I am particularly happy about the way the boys held their composure down the stretch. Last year we had a threepoint lead with a minute to go and lost to them,” he said. “This is a rivalry game and Cherry Creek is a very good team. It is a tough league and there is never a night off. Coming to their place and getting a win is huge for us. I am so happy for the boys, and although it is late in the season, we are looking at this as a starting point for our team to get better.” Key moments Cherry Creek hit their shots early as they pulled ahead and built a lead that hovered around 10 points for most of the first half, and the Bruins were up 50-44 going into the final quarter. Arapahoe battled back and tied the score 55-55 with five minutes left in the game. They scored the next five points to take the lead for good and won the game, 67-63. “In the fourth quarter we stopped playing defense like we did in the first three quarters. But I don’t want to take anything away from Arapahoe because they hit key shots when they were needed. Arapahoe scored 23 points in the fourth quarter and you aren’t going to win many games when you give up 23 points in the fourth quarter,” Cherry Creek Coach Kent Dertinger said after the game. “I am proud of the way the guys kept

Kyle Lukasiewicz puts the ball off the glass for Arapahoe during the Feb. 8 league basketball game against Cherry Creek. Lukasiewicz led the Warriors in scoring with 16 points as Arapahoe traveled to Cherry Creek for the rivalry game. The Bruins held the lead for much of the game but the Warriors put on a fourth-quarter rally to win the game 67-63. TOM MUNDS battling, but I do expect more of us down the stretch. We had a six-point lead going into the fourth quarter, we didn’t defend well so they made plays and we didn’t. It adds to the fire in our bellies to play good basketball in the final three games so we get a good seed in the playoffs.” Key players/statistics Arapahoe mounted a balanced offense with five players in double figures: Kyle Lukasiewicz with 16, Will Otten and Mitch Sweeney with 13 each and Ben Timmons and Jared Johnson with 11 points each. Timmons, who just returned to action, led the team in rebounding with nine and blocked two shots. They said it Arapahoe senior guard Mike Swee-

ney smiled as he talked about the game. “Tonight was awesome. We all just kept on believing we could win and we stuck together like brothers out there,” he said. “At halftime we decided we were sick of losing, all of us agreed we were going to win the game no matter what and we did. Personally, I got into the lane pretty well which opened some things up for my teammates, who hit some big shots for us. This is so much fun and I love it.” Jalen Meeks said for him and his Cherry Creek teammates it was a hard-fought game that went back and forth until the fourth quarter, when it slipped away. “This game meant the world to me since I am a senior with only a couple more games here at Cherry Creek,” he said. “I got the opening for my shots

and I feel I shot pretty well because I have been working hard on these shots in practice.” He said the loss will fire up the Bruins as they seek wins to close out the season and get a good seed in the playoffs. Going forward After the Feb. 8 game, Cherry Creek remained in third place in the 4A/5A Centennial League with a 14-6 overall record, and they were 6-5 in league with three games remaining in the regular season. The Bruins close out the regular season Feb. 17 on the road at Smoky Hill and then will wait for the state brackets to be released. Arapahoe’s win raised the team’s record to 8-12 overall and 3-8 in league. The Warriors close out their regular season on the road Feb. 17 at Overland.

STATE SWIMMING: HOW THEY FINISHED

FROM PAGE 24

Smith, the defending state champion in the 200 individual medley, was second in the 200-yard freestyle, third in the 100 breaststroke and both those events were coupled with her swimming legs immediately before or after on relay teams. Arapahoe’s 400-yard relay team with Smith swimming third was second, with Regis touching third to boost the Warriors into third place. Cherry Creek was seventh with 104 points. Andrews captured 4A titles in the 100 free with a 50.59 clocking and was first in the 100 backstroke in 55.67, which just edged Audrey Reimer of Fort Collins. She also swam on two Eagles relay teams. “It feels great to win the state championships,” Andrews said. “There was great competition in every single meet. My teammates were behind me in every single one and it just feels very accomplishing. “I felt I performed very well because I had a lot of competition. I was pushing really hard in the water and had a really good day.”

From zoning regulations to local budgets, governments have used local newspapers to inform citizens of its actions as an essential part of your right to know. You know where to look, when to look and what to look for to be involved as a citizen. Local newspapers provide you with the information you need to get involved.

Notices are meant to be noticed. Read your public notices and get involved!
