City manager resigns amid council turmoil Eric Keck, after four years in Englewood, steps down at turbulent meeting BY ELLIS ARNOLD EARNOLD@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

In an Englewood City Council meeting where the audience entered through metal detectors — and one councilmember did not attend due to threats — Englewood’s city manager announced his resignation amid what he called a divisive few months for the city. “My prayer for the City of Englewood as I exit this organization, and potentially exit the community, is that there is healing,” Eric Keck said during the Sept. 4 council meeting. Events in recent months “clearly have had an adverse impact on a number Keck of people, their health (and) their relationships with their neighbors, and I just really hope that that will clear up.” Keck, who began his position as city manager in September 2014, was offered a job in the private sector in a different state and said the decision to leave was influenced by his family. He’ll stay on in Englewood until Oct. 5. As of September 2017, Keck’s yearly salary as city manager was $169,950, according to city data. The city manager is Englewood’s top non-elected administrative official, who implements policy decisions made by the council. SEE CITY, P9

LPS scores high on state tests, as usual District well above state average, but tests don’t show whole picture BY DAVID GILBERT DGILBERT@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Standardized test scores at Littleton Public Schools were well above the state average again in 2018, but still below where district officials would like them to be. Littleton’s scores on the Colorado Measures of Academic Success, or CMAS tests, showed students far outperforming their peers statewide in English, math and science, though the proportion of kids who met or exceeded state standards is still largely hovering mid-range. LPS students’ scores on the SAT — which can be a determining factor in college acceptance — were also well above average. By and large, students’ scores didn’t move much from last year, with most grades showing only minor fluctuations from 2017. Despite state laws allowing parents to opt their children out of CMAS testing, participation rates were largely in the 90s in most grades. The largest exception was high school science, which saw only a 36.7 percent participation rate. By far the biggest improvements in LPS’s scores were in eighth-grade English and math, both of which saw their scores jump by more than 8 percentage points. Students meeting or exceeding the English standard in eighth grade were at 69.3 percent this year, and eighthgraders meeting or exceeding the math standard were at 41.9 percent. Though those numbers may sound low, they are well above their peers statewide, where 43.8 percent of eighth-graders met or exceeded the English standard, and only 28.2 percent

met or exceeded the eighthgrade math standard. LPS would like to improve those numbers and see far greater proportions meeting or exceeding expectations, said Patti Turner, the district’s director of learning services. “We still have work to do with implementing the academic standards and making sure students know what do and what’s expected of them,” Turner said. The district is still working to meet new standards implemented by the state Department of Education in 2010, Turner said. “We’re moving in the right direction, but it takes time,” Turner said. “We have elementary teachers who aren’t experts at science. We need to build their capacity.” The very nature of CMAS tests may render them inadequate gauges of student performance, said Amanda Crosby, a social studies teacher at Arapahoe High School and president of the Littleton Education Association — the teachers’ union. “There’s no particular reward for doing well on the test, or drawback for doing less

than their full effort,” Crosby said. She said she asked one of her honors classes how many students slack off on the test, and all but one student raised their hands. While Crosby said she understands the data from CMAS tests can be useful at the state level to help determine where to prioritize resources, at the classroom level it’s largely unnecessary. “The CMAS just gives you a one-moment snapshot,” Crosby said. “Many educators don’t think the CMAS is worth the time and energy, or the anxiety and lost instructional time for students.” Crosby said she also worries about a general overreliance on the data gathered from the CMAS. “Does it tell you what you want about a school, or about students?” Crosby asked. “We put a lot more emphasis on social and emotional wellness these days. Are students safe? Are they well adjusted? Are they prepared to pursue opportunities after high school? The test scores give a poor picture of the whole child.”

SHARON PEARSON

Rock climber, adventurer, grandma Destined for Colorado I’m retired — from all sorts of things. Climbing, biking, kayaking and my new granddaughter fill my life. I grew up in Chicago. I came for a vacation when I was 12, and I stood on the steps of Mary Reed Hall at the University of Denver, and I looked from Pikes Peak to Longs Peak, and decided right there that was where I was going to college. I never applied anywhere else. Many jobs I got degrees in history and speech communications. I was a paralegal, then birthing two children, then working for an independent Denver-based toy company. Then I sold industrial plastics, then I sold maps for National Geographic, and finally I was an executive assistant in Littleton — basically a high-priced handmaiden. Overcoming challenges The outdoors have been really important in my life. I’ve rock-climbed in Greece,

Thailand and Spain, and done lots of camping in Colorado. Climbing came to me in a challenging period of my life. I was going through a divorce, I had a difficult foster child, my dad had just died, and my company was being sold. All at the same time. I was 47. ‘Keep moving’ A friend of mine took me climbing, and it was the first time I was able to get out of my head and be in the moment. It requires your full attention. I was terrified of heights. I’d stand at the bottom of the cliffs on Table Mountain and try to convince myself to go up. I’ve been climbing for more than 20 years now — I just turned 69. Climbing is a great problem-solving activity. It keeps you fit, too. Keep moving, because once you stop, it’s over.

Gym is open for those ready to climb walls Earth Treks indoor climbing facility offers variety of challenges BY TOM MUNDS TMUNDS@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Emily Camp smiled as she emerged from Earth Treks facility at 1050 W. Hampden Ave. in Englewood after spending a couple hours on the facility’s indoor climbing walls. “I am an avid climber and I have been a member of the Earth Treks climbing wall in Golden since 2014,” she said. “I like climbing because it helps keep me physically fit, which is important because I am a fitness instructor.” She said she liked the Englewood facility because the wall is taller than the one in Golden. “This is a beautiful facility,” she said. “They have a lot of choices for climbing which are challenging, and that is part of what makes climbing fun.” The Earth Treks in Englewood opened Aug. 31 and is touted as the nation’s largest indoor climbing facility. It is in the south building on what once was the Sports Authority campus, and is easily reached from Jason Street just north of Kenyon Avenue. Tori Barnett, marketing director, said the facility covers 53,000 square feet. She explained that the company raised a portion of the roof to create a vertical space 55 feet tall, and that with the overhanging terrain at the top of some walls, the facility offers climbing lengths of up to 65 feet “to challenge our climbers.” “Our facility offers 500 possible climbing routes,” Barnett said. “We

have routes for hand climbers as well as routes for those who prefer to use a belaying harness and rope.” She said the layout of the facility could accomodate up to about 400 climbers at a time. No climbers would be taking the same route, so the none of the walls or routes would be crowded. Climbers can buy day passes to use the facility or they can buy a membership that is valid at the Englewood and Golden facilities. Barnett said there is a special offer of a membership for $59, which is half price. The price will be available until Oct. 31. The facility also offers child care, which costs $7 an hour for non-members and $5 an hour for Earth Treks members. Earth Trek will also be home to a climbing team that competes against teams from other facilities. “We also will have a recreational climbing club that for the younger climbers from 8-year-olds to young men and women in high school,” Barnett said. “We will be holding tryouts in the fall for the teams.” The facility draws climbers of all ages. Sebastian Lang was climbing for the first time Aug. 31. His mother said he has always been a good climber, so they brought him to Earth Treks so he could try its facilities. After he completed about an hour of instruction and practice on the walls, the 7-year-old said climbing is a lot of fun. “This kind of climbing is new to me,” he said. “It was challenging. I liked being in harness but the hardest thing still was when I looked down. I knew that I was safe but it still was a little scary being that high off the ground. It was scary but still it was a lot of fun and I want to come back and climb the walls again.”

Earth Treks climbing instructor Jay Thurston plans his route up a bouldering wall. “I can’t tell you how much I love the rush of adrenaline when I make it to the top,” Thurston said. DAVID GILBERT

Sebastian Lang looks down as he completes his ascent on one of the climbing routes on the walls of Earth Treks. The 7-year-old said the hardest part of his effort was when he looked down and realized how high he had climbed. But he was wearing a harness and had a person on the floor to keep him safe and allow him to belay his way down. TOM MUNDS

Earth Treks climbing instructor Adam Avello makes his way up a bouldering route. “Climbing is about facing your fears,” Avello said. “It’s about pushing forward and focusing on your goal. It’s analgous to life.” DAVID GILBERT

Public works seeks funds to calm neighborhood traffic Roundabouts, improved sidewalks on list of fixes BY DAVID GILBERT DGILBERT@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Littleton’s Public Works department will request $25,000 annually from the city budget to gear toward traffic-calming efforts, years after a similar fund dwindled to zero. The move comes as part of increasingly invigorated efforts on the part of city staff and elected officials to address traffic, congestion and parking issues in Littleton, which consistently sit at the top of surveys of citizen concerns. City Public Works Director Keith Reester discussed the potential uses of the funds at the Sept. 4 city council study session, which could cover the cost of a host of traffic-control devices in residential areas. The funds would not address traffic-congestion issues on major arterial streets, which are the subject of other city studies and surveys. City Manager Mark Relph said last year that the cost of addressing congestion in areas like Santa Fe Drive could soar into the millions of dollars. Instead, Reester said, the money could lend itself to safer and more efficient traffic flow in neighbor-

hoods, addressing issues like speeding, unsafe pedestrian walkways or poorly marked streets. “We’re dealing with years of inconsistent installation (of traffic control devices),” Reester said. “We’ve had a history of putting in four-way stops to control speed, not always in areas where they’re needed, which causes people to roll through some of those stop signs.” A more comprehensive approach, Reester said, could involve judicious use of traffic control devices like roundabouts, traffic circles, widened sidewalks, medians and other low-maintenance methods. Speed bumps are falling out of favor because they can inhibit the rapid response of emergency vehicles and frustrate immediately adjacent residents due to increased vehicle noise, he added. The trouble, Reester said, is that deciding what goes where requires many person-hours of study. To that end, Reester would like to up the threshold for areas that would demand a review by city staff. The current criteria for review include that a minimum of 30 percent of the vehicles on a street exceed the posted speed limit by 5 mph or more. Reester would like to see the numbers changed to a minimum of 25 percent of vehicles exceeding the speed limit by 9 mph or more.

The idea, he said, is to ensure that city staff are focusing their efforts on the highest-priority areas, rather than being spread too thin studying too many stretches of road. “When we talk about traffic calming, it’s a big resource take,” Reester said. The city has already taken steps toward addressing traffic woes in recent years, such as the formation of a traffic safety committee earlier this year consisting of city staff and police, Reester said, as well as adding positions in Public Works dedicated to traffic management and transportation planning. The big picture is that Littleton needs a comprehensive transportation master plan, Reester said, which is high on city council’s list of priorities in the coming year. Councilmembers largely expressed support of Reester’s goals, with some wondering if $25,000 a year was enough. “Traffic is a number one concern of our citizens,” said Councilmember Karina Elrod. “There are more people moving in than moving out. I don’t want to get into a routine of just chasing this. I want to get ahead of these problems.”

Debbie Brinkman, Littleton mayor Mayor Debbie Brinkman was also open to making sure traffic calming efforts were sufficiently funded. “Underfunding anything is just wasting money,” Brinkman said. “I wonder, too, about the education and outreach piece … as population increases, so does acceptance of things like roundabouts. We tend to talk in terms of 20-year plans, but these need to be more like five-year plans.” Regardless, traffic concerns are unlikely to be solved for good, said Councilmember Kyle Schlachter. “Traffic and congestion were top issues back in the early ‘90s, too,” Schlachter said. “It’s not new, and it’s not going away.”

South Suburban seeks public input for recreation complex STAFF REPORT

Clim bThe Stairway To Heaven

‘Underfunding anything is just wasting money.’

A new recreation complex that is expected to include a field house, ice arena and gymnasium with pickleball courts is being developed by South Suburban Parks and Recreation, and the recreation district wants the public to provide input on the new facility. The new center, which will be nearly 200,000 square feet, will be built just southwest of East County Line Road and South Holly Street. In addition to recreation amenities, the center will house the recreation district’s administrative offices. The complex will replace the 50-year-old South Suburban Ice Arena and South Suburban’s administrative offices near Arapahoe Road and University Boulevard in Centennial. Completion for the $50 million project is expected by December 2020. Perkins + Will is the architect leading the design team, and Adolfson and Peterson Construction is the construction manager/general contractor.

Two open house-style meetings will provide the public a chance to learn about the center and provide input on the proposed plans. The meetings are at Goodson Recreation Center, 6315 S. University Blvd., Centennial. The two meetings are Tuesday, Sept. 18, from 1-3 p.m., in Room 8; and Thursday, Sept. 20, from 6-8 p.m., in Room 5. Perkins + Will has worked on a number of sports, athletic, recreation and multi-purpose event centers, including Denver Broncos Football Club, Pat Bowlen Fieldhouse at UCHealth Training Facility and Red Rocks Amphitheatre and Visitor’s Center. Adolfson & Peterson Construction has built a wide range of recreational amenities and athletic facilities, including Colorado Mesa University’s Maverick Center, Gypsum Recreation Center, Stadium at Adams 12 School District, Parker Recreation Center Expansion and Westminster Recreation Center Aquatics Center addition & renovation.

B’s Auto closes its doors after losing lease Englewood shop earned loyalty of customers through 31 years in business

Pat Burke works on the engine of a 1951 Oldsmobile he is restoring. He works on the restoration when he is not working on customers’ vehicles at the shop. The company was not able to renew the lease to its East Hampden shop so it closed its doors on Aug. 31. The owners unsuccessfully tried to find another location so the company is no longer in the auto repair business after 31 years at the Englewood location. TOM MUNDS

BY TOM MUNDS TMUNDS@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

According to company records, about 1,200 customers of B’s Auto will be looking for a new place to have their vehicles repaired, because owners Pat and Colleen Burke said they were unable to renew the lease on their shop site at 1236 E. Hampden Ave. and their only choice was to close the doors on Aug. 31. “We didn’t want to close but we couldn’t renew our lease here and the owner refused our offer to buy the building,” Colleen Burke said. “We also tried to unsuccessfully to find a new location somewhere in the area. But time on the lease was running out so we stopped repairing cars Aug. 31 so we could clear out the building. Our plans are to hold an auction very soon to sell our equipment so that we can be out of the building when the lease ends in October.” Colleen keeps the books for the company while Pat has always been out in the shop working on cars. Colleen said she and Pat have been married for 40 years on Nov. 4 and

when they got married the couple didn’t have any plans of opening their own car repair business. “Pat had been working for dealerships all his life,” she said. “We had always talked about owning our own shop. We came to Colorado in ‘76 and one day in ‘87 I was grocery shopping when Pat came running up to me telling me he had found it, the place

where we could open our own auto repair shop. Thirty days later we opened the shop here where we are today.” She said you can serve a customer one time but there needs to be something that brings that customer back. “I believe the key is customer service,” she said. “The people bring their car to us for service. They usually don’t see the technicians who do the

work. Their contact is with the people in the office. Whether I am meeting the customer or it is Pat or service adviser Joe Gootee, who has been with us for 26 years, we always make sure we provide quality customer service, which is what makes that individual a repeat customer.” SEE B’S AUTO, P22

City drafting plan to address short-term rentals Public input to be sought in open house, community survey STAFF REPORT

At any time of year, a number of properties in Englewood are listed on short-term rental sites offering visitors the opportunity to rent a home or even just a bed.

CITY

However, the Englewood Unified Development Code prohibits visitor accommodations in residential zone districts and does not collect lodging taxes on these rentals. Additionally, the city does not inspect short-term rentals in private homes, meaning those accommodations might not meet the same health and safety requirements of hotels and other visitor requirements. Because short-term rentals can mean more noise, parking and traf-

fic issues in neighborhoods, zoning, licensing, taxation and public safety requirements must be addresed, and the city is drafting regulations regarding the permitting of shortterm rentals. An open house at 6 p.m. Sept. 20 will allow the community to learn about short-term rentals, the proposed regulations, the proposed process for obtaining a short-term rental permit and how future regulations might be enforced. The open house is in the community room on

Keck has served city during era of change

FROM PAGE 1

Keck will step down amid a turbulent time for Englewood’s government. Here is a look at some examples of recent contention and the city’s next steps. Rocky recall An effort to recall Councilmember Laurett Barrentine from office has served as a backdrop to other conflict in the city. An incident in which Barrentine reportedly yelled at Councilmember Cheryl Wink and followed her into a lobby from the council meeting chambers on May 7 stemmed from Wink mentioning “concerns from citizens in the community” about Barrentine, according to an Englewood Police Department report provided to the Englewood Herald. At an Aug. 8 forum that discussed the recall, Barrentine said a person in favor of the recall had been telling people a councilmember “had called the police on (her).” Barrentine said a “plethora of lies” was being told about her and later said she didn’t remember the May incident. The group that pushed for the recall included former Mayors Jim Woodward and Randy Penn and two other residents of District 3. Clearing the threshold by about 60 required signatures, the petition garnered 424 verified names, according to the city clerk. Election Day is Sept. 18, when mail ballots must be received by the city. Frustration after flood Residents have vented frustration for weeks at council meetings in the wake of the July 24 flood that took a woman’s life and displaced several other people. At Barrentine’s Aug. 8 forum, one question asked if money to pay for the Sept. 18 recall election would be better spent on flood-related efforts, but the council is bound by its charter to move forward with the election once a valid petition is submitted, which occurred July 3. The city has acknowledged it was ill-prepared to withstand the flood, with Keck noting its need for a new emergency-operations plan and lack of an emergency manager. The city’s storm-drain system was built in the 1950s to 1970s, and Englewood also

lacks a communications system for disasters — a gap that caused a slow response for recovery efforts, Keck has said. Some speakers complain At the Sept. 4 council meeting, resident JJ Margiotta served subpoenas to each councilmember to appear in court as witnesses to what he alleges is improper serving of paperwork. The case is related to alleged nonpayment of sales tax and zoning regarding his business, he said. He said the council would receive two more subpoenas related to the city’s sales-tax enforcement and “you guys (knowing) that the city has broken the law,” he argued. Margiotta, owner of the motorcycle parts and repair shop Knuckleheads on South Broadway, has appeared before council several times in the past few months. The city claims Margiotta has failed to file sales- and use-tax returns and that motorcycle sales take place at Knuckleheads although Margiotta did not notify the city or provide a state-issued dealer’s certificate, according to a letter the city sent him. Some residents also complained at the Aug. 20 meeting about the city’s financial management, including a call by resident Chris Duis to recall other councilmembers in reaction to the effort to recall Barrentine, who has pushed to audit city-related entities she says have been run improperly. A report by the 18th Judicial Dis-

trict Attorney’s Office in April 2017 looked into the allegations and determined a criminal investigation is not warranted — and that the city should have discovered the possibility for misconduct related to the allegations “as early as 2012” — but Barrentine still advocates for a forensic audit, which can seek wrongdoing. Leaving in troubling time At the top of the Sept. 4 meeting, Mayor Linda Olson read a statement from Wink, who did not attend out of concern for her well-being. “I was apprised of threats to city councilmembers which originated from a small group of angry individuals who are planning to create an uprising of anger during tonight’s council meeting,” Olson read for Wink. During Keck’s long address to council, he acknowledged a divisive last few months in Englewood. Discussing his resignation, he recounted the council asking him how long he would stay, when he was interviewed for the position. “I will stay as long as I’m needed, that my leadership is functional and engaging and is improving (the city),” Keck said. He went on to lament the recent division in the city and said the city staff is not out for “self-aggrandizement; they’re not here for the paycheck.” “I would hope that this council and the community would continue to

respect the employees,” Keck said. The decision to step down was not influenced by criticism the city has received during the flood or by contention surrounding the recall, Keck said in a later interview. Over his tenure, Keck showed his stripes as a manager willing to push ideas that at times went against the grain with some residents and councilmembers. He supported transitioning the city’s fire services from the Englewood Fire Department to Denver Fire Department in 2015, for example, a decision he defends as effective in saving the city money. When he announced his resignation, he held true to that disposition, saying he enjoys Englewood’s “smalltown values” but that the council needs to address problems like investing in infrastructure. “While this may be a smaller community in a larger metropolitan area, you’re a big city. You have complex issues,” Keck said, adding, “We need to act like a big city — not do things on the cheap.” He added it’s an “honor and a privilege” to have served as city manager. Looking forward Olson, the mayor, said in her statement that Keck had the problemsolving skills the city needed in the post-recession era. “Keck’s energetic leadership infused the city with new vision,” Olson said. “His people skills with city staff, residents, businesses and other metropolitan leaders has been more than admirable.” Council is responsible for the selection process for a new manager and was to discuss that process, and the process for retaining an interim city manager, at a special council meeting Sept. 10. The city is also without an assistant city manager after Mark Woulf left at the end of June. Because of the arrival of new administrative staff members, the recruitment process for that position was put on hold, and Keck appointed Dorothy Hargrove, the director of parks, recreation and library, as interim assistant city manager. Keck thanked the community and city staff and wished Englewood “all the best going forward.” “Council, thank you,” Keck said. “I look forward to working with you over the next month and hope to continue to keep us on a positive trajectory.”

Council proceeding with short-term rental rules At issue: Should rentals be owner’s primary residence? BY DAVID GILBERT DGILBERT@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Littleton City Council is moving closer to enacting regulations on shortterm home rentals like those offered by Airbnb, but still at issue is whether the owner of such properties must prove it’s their primary residence. The efficacy of such an ordinance to protect neighbors from degrading neighborhood character hinges on the requirement, said Dan Radulovich, one of many residents who brought Littleton’s lack of short-term rental enforcement to council’s attention this summer. Allowing operators to run short-term rentals in homes other than their own

would essentially grant “a commercial business license to someone to run a lodging business in a residential zone,” Radulovich said at the Sept. 4 city council meeting. “Honestly that should make your skin crawl if you’re a public servant.” Council currently has given itself until Oct. 17 to hammer out a framework to oversee the city’s dozens of short-term rentals, scattered across the city in houses, apartments, accessory dwelling units and spare bedrooms. Though ten are currently licensed by the city, a search of Airbnb or VRBO reveals far more operating under the radar. Mayor Debbie Brinkman said in July that the city’s policy on such rentals has long been reactive — responding to neighbor complaints rather than actively seeking to regulate rentals. Under the proposed ordinance, discussed at the Aug. 28 city council study session, short-term rentals would be

allowed in all zoning areas that allow residential use, and applicants would need to pay for an annual license. Operators would be required to provide off-street parking for renters, and would have to provide contact information for a local person who could respond to problems if the owners are away. Council was divided, though, on whether to require operators to prove that the property is their primary residence. Such a requirement could be construed as taking away property rights, said councilmember Kyle Schlachter. “What if somebody has a house here, and they live in a house in Nevada or Florida?” Schlachter said. “The goal here is to keep someone from buying up a block of houses and renting them all out. A limit of one short-term rental license per individual would prevent changing the character of a neighborhood.” Limiting short-term rentals wouldn’t necessarily restrict property rights, said councilmember Carol Fey. “It’s not like we’re saying you can’t rent out your house,” Fey said. “If they

don’t want this to be their primary residence, they can do it as a regular rental.” Mayor Brinkman said she had concerns on the issue. “It’s one thing if you don’t live here but have a business here and hire a manager,” Brinkman said. “When you run a business in a neighborhood, it’s very different. Especially considering these businesses effectively operate 24 hours a day. Things like parking and noise are not as easy to manage.” The meeting did not address how or whether currently unlicensed operators would be brought into compliance, though city staff have floated the idea of hiring a third-party company that would monitor online listings. City attorney Steve Kemp said that violators of the ordinance could be prosecuted for a misdemeanor, but that the city’s priority would be on getting them licensed. Littleton isn’t alone in trying to figure out how to respond to short-term rentals, Brinkman said. “We’re being reactive,” Brinkman said. “Nobody has this figured out. It’s happening to us.”

Littleton Fire Chief Chris Armstrong will step down from his position effective Oct. 10, about 2 1/2 months before the department is dissolved and the city begins contracting with South Metro Fire Rescue for service in January. Armstrong will take the helm of the Armstrong Hall County, Georgia, fire department, according to a city news release sent out on the afternoon of Sept. 7. Division Chief Jeff Tasker will take his place as interim chief until the end of the year, when South Metro takes over. “Chief Armstrong has been a great leader for our fire department, and our entire organization,” City Manager Mark Relph said. “He’s been a huge help getting us through

the South Metro discussion. I’m not surprised another organization sees him as a high value.” Armstrong has been with Littleton Fire Rescue since December 2013. Before that, Armstrong worked as a deputy chief of operations for Miramar Fire Rescue in Miramar, Florida, where he started his career as a paramedic. “This has been a bittersweet decision, but my family and I are excited to be closer to our extended family,” Armstrong said in the statement. Armstrong’s departure won’t have much impact on transition efforts for the fire departments, said Littleton Mayor Debbie Brinkman. “There are so many people working on the merger to make sure it goes clean and easy,” Brinkman said. “So much of what we’re doing is just on paper. We’re not moving buildings or anything. All the trucks and the troops are staying in place. The heavy lifting is done.” Tasker and South Metro can handle what’s left, Brinkman said. “Chief Armstrong wouldn’t leave a mess,” Brinkman said. “He’s not that kind of a guy.”

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Think of the kids If Congress doesn’t act to save it, we could lose one of the best federal programs keeping kids healthy: The Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF).

With LWCF set to expire Sept. 30, moms are concerned.

LWCF has made possible many of our playgrounds, ballparks, bike paths and soccer fields, as well as state parks, including local treasures like Cottonwood Park in Aurora, Cherry Creek Reservoirand Roxborough State Park. Over $268 million in federal funds have been brought home to Colorado for these projects. If the program expires that means no federal funds to help maintain existing projects or help build new sports fields as our state grows, making existing ones

as crowded as our roads. Even though bipartisan legislation to permanently renew LWCF has been around for six months, Congress has not acted. Why didn’t Reps. Coffman, Buck, or Lamborn sign onto Rep. Polis’s letter asking for a vote on that bill? Certainly, any parent’s priority is that their kids are healthy.

happens is that we become decisively undecisive. We get so caught up in being undecided that we cannot make a decision. Stuck, frozen in time, and unable to focus on anything else. We seek information, we search the internet, we talk to friends, family, colleagues, coaches, and consultants. Sometimes the information is consistent, and yet other times, the guidance and recommendations could not be any farther apart. It is decision-making atrophy. We are so caught up in making the “right” decision based on the input and feedback from others, and possibly even to be politically correct, that we have stopped thinking for ourselves. It is so much easier to let social media be the judge, or to allow Google to make an informed decision for us. Why should we be taxed with making such hard decisions when artificial intelligence can do it?

No more excuses — we can all help prevent suicide

W

hy do we keep talking about suicide in Colorado? “I can’t really do anything about it anyway.” “It’s not my problem.” GUEST “If people want to COLUMN die, let them.” I’ve heard all of these excuses over the years throughout my suicide prevention work. Yet, I still continue to do my work on the Colorado Suicide Prevention Commission and nationally now. Why? Because it Linda Newell IS our problem. Death by suicide is now a public health crisis, especially in Colorado, that affects almost all of us. There is hardly a person who doesn’t know of someone who has attempted or completed suicide or who has survived a loss of a family member, co-worker,

fellow student or neighbor. Some statistics show that with each suicide comes nearly $1 million in workplace, personal and governmental costs. Even among those not touched directly, we are indirectly paying fiscally or socially whether it’s loss of work productivity or effects of grieving in our neighborhoods, schools or places of worship. With each attempted or completed suicide, loss survivors can become fixated on all the “why” or “what if ” questions, which can bring their own lives to a halt. Some have told me that if a person wants to die, let them. It’s their life after all. Isn’t that what we approved with the Compassionate Choices ballot measure? No. Taking your life because you are about to die due to a terminal illness is not the same. Dying by succumbing to your emotional pain and anguish can be preventable. Does anyone want their loved one or neighbor to die in pain? Others have said that they can’t do

anything about it anyway. Not so. In Colorado, suicide is the leading cause of death for ages 10 to 24. Why? Is it their brain development timing that doesn’t allow them to understand the finality of their act? Or the TV shows or video games they see where a person is injured and gets right back up? Is it the bullying they receive at school that just becomes too painful? Whatever it is, there are “protective factors” that we can encourage or implement that can help prevent others’ self-harm. These protective factors are things that we all can help with - like listening to each other, showing empathy and compassion for one another, showing respect and dignity for each other as humans. These are all things we can do not only in our schools, institutions and workplaces, but also in our everyday life on the sidewalk, in the grocery store, classroom or restaurant. We can be engaged in preventive mental health activities like yoga, walking

in nature, wellness coaching, or counseling. If it’s not us, we can recommend these to others who could benefit. In honoring those no longer with us or still suffering today, consider taking action now during Suicide Prevention Month. We can all have an impact on preventing suicide by looking after each other, or even just treating each other with kindness and care. Yes, suicides continue to be on the rise, but we ALL can do something about it. • Suicide Prevention Lifeline: 1-800273-TALK (8255) — toll free • Colorado Crisis & Support Line: 1-844-493-TALK (8255) — toll free Formerly a Colorado state senator, now a seminary student at Iliff School of Theology, Linda Newell is a writer, speaker, filmmaker and consultant.

n 1993, after geologists Charlie and Janine Sturdavant lost their jobs, they purchased a Victorian-style home in Golden’s historic district. They filled a machine shop behind the house with old dairy tanks. They transformed the sunroom into a tasting room. The back yard became an intimate beer garden, with picnic tables and bulb lights draped overhead. More than 30 years later, Golden City Brewery is the city’s second largest brewery. “Nothing was planned out — it happened organically,” said Derek Sturdavant, the son of the original owners. After he graduated from college, he took on the role of head brewer, or as his bio says, “mad scientist.” Golden City Brewery, 920 12th St., is one of more than 800 breweries from across the U.S. that will be participating in this year’s Great American Beer Festival in downtown Denver. Sturdavant will be pouring favorites like the Cherry Bomber, which takes a half-pound of cherries per pint, and the Clear Creek Gold Pale Ale, a German-style beer. The three-day beer extravaganza is from Sept. 20-22 at the Colorado Convention Center, 700 14th St. in downtown Denver. As of press time, tickets were still available for the Sept. 20 opening-day session, from 5:30-10 p.m. An $85 ticket gets you a festival program, commemorative tasting cup and unlimited one-ounce samples

This year, more than 8,000 styles of beer will be served. More than 62,000 attendees are expected over the three days. “It’s like a big ol’ music fest but everyone is a craft beer fan,” Sturdavant said. Brewers get creative and showcase new recipes to beer drinkers and to each other.

Couple wins national volunteer award STAFF REPORT

Jim and Chris Stieler spend countless hours visiting with residents of Life Care Center of Littleton. Jim helps with the bingo games and serves up ice cream. Chris talks with residents about current events. Those, along with countless other good deeds, are why the couple recently was awarded the Life Care Centers of America’s Group Volunteer Award, given out during the company’s annual management meeting at its headquarters in Cleveland, Tennessee. “Volunteering is really great,” Jim Stieler said in a news release. “The staff is really great to work with, and we’re getting some very good relationships with the residents, which is really special.” The couple began volunteering at Life Care Center of Littleton in 2016. Chris started by visiting with residents and helping with discussions about current events. She also started a gardening club and, under her guidance, residents have grown their own salsa garden, planted potted flowers, and sanded and painted benches. She

even recruited a friend to help with the club activities. She has befriended a number of residents who have little family support and shops for them, helps organize their rooms and even brings popcorn and watches movies with them on some Friday nights. A few months after his retirement, Jim joined his wife in volunteering. In addition to helping with bingo and serving ice cream, Jim visits with residents, fills in for volunteers who can’t make it to their usual activities and assists with local school group visits. Both have helped on outings in the community. “Jim and Chris Stieler have set the standard for others in their commitment to making the lives of others brighter and more fulfilling. Their action and compassion inspires us all,” Life Care President Beecher Hunter said in the release. The Volunteer Group of the Year Award is presented annually and selected from the best of every region and division within Life Care. Criteria include active, ongoing and hands-on service and raising community aware-

College gallery exhibition recounts journey to Japan Art students, faculty members took memorable trip abroad to study BY SONYA ELLINGBOE SELLINGBOE@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

I

n late spring, 48 Arapahoe Community College art students and faculty members flew to Japan for the 2018 Study Abroad excursion, landing in Osaka, then onto legendary Kyoto, where they began a journey that included color, sound, food and lots of contrast between old and new in every direction. The Bullet Train whizzed them to Tokyo and a bus took them on a day trip to nearby Kamakura, an ancient capital, with a famous huge Buddha. Participants had prepared with a spring quarter class about what they would discover — and for some, there was help with an effort to raise the necessary money to make the trip. All returned with a head filled with memories and images, with full sketchbooks and camera records — and a most satisfying experience with a different culture. A new exhibit is open through Oct. 3 in the Colorado Gallery of Art at ACC, called “Japan … a Journey of Art.” Third-year art student/traveler/ photographer Jenna Cardenas was on

NORTON FROM PAGE 12

I am talking about the artificial and made up intelligence of our sources of information and the input we receive from others, and especially from others who change their mind and basis of information on the very last thing that they were told or that they read. And that it is exactly why we need to start exercising our own decisionmaking muscles again. When we want to build up our physical strength and endurance we do not send our neighbor to the gym. When we need to go to the doctor’s office we do not send our cousin to have the Xray taken for us or have our brother go for the blood test. The answer is no. There are certain things that we have to do, that we are required to do, and that we get rewarded for doing.

or antagonist? Would you rather be a metaphor or a cliché? (Be careful what you wish for.) Wide receiver or tight end? Would you rather watch an Adam Sandler movie or hit yourself over the head with a croquet mallet? “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty” is a short story written by James Thurber. Mitty is an uneventful man who daydreams about being someone he is not: a magnificent surgeon, a deadly assassin, and a Royal Air Force pilot, among others (the film versions are somewhat different). It’s natural to imagine yourself leading the team down the field in the fourth quarter, or hitting the walkoff to put your team in the play-offs. Those are not unrealistic. Becoming a millionaire overnight supports the concept of the lottery. I see a one-legged man in a wheelchair scratching a lottery ticket at least once a week, and I always hope I will hear him say, “Hallelujah.” Craig Marshall Smith is an artist, educator and Highlands Ranch resident. He can be reached at craigmarshallsmith@comcast.net. Decision making is one of those things. Not just the easy ones that we prefer to make, but the difficult decisions that we agonize over as well. What I have learned when it comes to decision making is that a “less is more” approach is the best approach. Seeking wise counsel, having strong advisers, and receiving rock-solid data to support a difficult decision is absolutely encouraged. It is when we seek too much information, when we try and justify the easy way out because we know someone will give us an opinion that will let us off the hook, and when we spend countless hours and days searching the internet just to make sure we didn’t miss that opinion piece from 2005 that will help us make the “right” decision, that is when we become decisively undecisive. Look, if you are like me and really prefer the easy decisions, but from time to time have to make a really tough call, do yourself a favor and

Family STEM festival returns STAFF REPORT

Exhibits and interactions with energy experts designed to spark students’ interest in science, technology, engineering and math will highlight Energy Day, an annual free family STEM festival in Denver. The Energy Day festival runs from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 22 at East High School, 1600 City Park Esplanade, Denver. “Encouraging students by providing a space for them to see and experience the skills necessary to solve big-world problems in energy is the reason we put on one of the biggest STEM events in Denver,” Andrew Browning, chief operating officer of Consumer Energy Alliance, one of the hosts of this year’s Energy Day event in Denver, said in a news release. “We want kids to see how fun jobs in the energy sector are and help students get excited about jobs that limit the sources of information and people that will influence that decision. You will save time, energy, stress, and relationships, and in the end, I am sure most times you will make the right decision, and probably the decision that you were going to make even before you did your research and talked to your family and friends. So how about you? How are your decision-making muscles these days?

could fill Colorado’s workforce-ready pipeline with graduates who are wellversed in the sciences — setting them up for a successful career path.” Dozens of exhibitors will host interactive demonstrations and exhibits to teach students and their families about Colorado’s various forms of energy, science, technology, efficiency, conservation and careers in the energy industry. The Colorado Department of Transportation will have its electric vehicle on hand to showcase the driving options of the future. In partnership with CDOT, School of Mines students will present a Hyperloop project, highlighting the next generation in transportation. The National Renewable Energy Laboratory and the Dakota Ridge High School Robotics Team will present model electric cars designed and constructed for NREL’s annual Middle School Electric Car Competition this past May.

I would love to hear your strategy for making up your mind at gotonorton@ gmail.com and when we can avoid being decisively undecisive, it really will be a better than good week.

Volunteers led kids in several games in which they could win a prize.

ith its second annual street festival, Englewood once again made its case for being the place to be. A packed crowd converged on the 3400 block of South Broadway in Englewood’s downtown, visiting booths for local businesses, munching on food from Moe’s Original Bar B Que and listening to a five-act music lineup. The warmer weather — last year’s event was in October — appeared to get more people talking in the crowd, said Liz Rivera, a 35-year-old Englewood resident who came with her puppy. “We’re actually getting a chance to meet our neighbors,” Rivera said. A slew of local businesses set up booths lining the middle of the street, including Emerge Modern Salon, which opened a new location in Englewood about two months ago at 2749 S. Broadway. The business was among many in the city who aimed to connect with

the local foot traffic. “We wanted to know our neighbors and continue making Englewood beautiful,” said Nicole Libertelli, the salon’s creative director. Businesses along the block benefitted from the crowd, too, with The Brew on Broadway seeing dozens at its outdoor seating area and the Englewood Grand bar fielding a flow of customers. More than five hours of music kept the event lively, with a lineup that included Megan Burtt, an indie rocker; Strange Americans, a rock band; Down Time, a laid-back indie rock group; Extra Gold, a country act; and the Other Black, who headlined with a soul-funk-hip-hop sound that got the crowd moving. All artists are from the Denver area. On stage, Mayor Linda Olson drew a loud response from the crowd when she asked how many people are from Englewood. She also addressed those who came from out of town. “Please come back,” Olson said, “and tell people Englewood is a great place.”

Mail carrier under investigation on suspicion of theft BY ELLIS ARNOLD EARNOLD@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

A mail carrier is under investigation after agents with the Office of Inspector General for the U.S. Postal Service received allegations in February that customers were not getting mail in Englewood, according to that office. Agents identified the employee suspected of the thefts on June 6, and the employee is currently in a “non-pay, non-duty status,” said David Rupert, spokesman for the USPS in Colorado. The complaints in February originated at the post office at 915 W. Lehigh Ave., not far southeast of West Hampden Avenue and South Santa Fe Drive, according to the OIG. “When these types of allegations are made, USPS OIG special agents vigorously investigate these matters, as we did in this instance,” said Jeffrey Krafels, deputy special agent in charge for the OIG Western Area Field Office in the Denver area, in a statement. No complaints at other Denverarea post offices, or employees of those post offices, are involved in the investigation of the employee identified on June 6, Krafels said. He

TIPS FOR PREVENTING THEFT A list of potential targets for mail theft includes: • Checks, credit cards, jewelry and greeting cards with cash. • DVDs, CDs, Home Shopping Network/ QVC-branded parcels, gift cards, mail-order prescriptions and eBay-branded parcels. Other tips: • Never send cash or coins in the mail. Use checks or money orders.

Social Security numbers, account numbers and statements. Be careful when disposing of used credit card receipts and pre-approved credit card solicitations. • Report nonreceipt of valuable mail as soon as possible by calling banks, credit card-issuers and the Office of Inspector General’s Hotline at 1-888-877-7644. You can also visit the OIG website at www.uspsoig.gov and fill out a Hotline complaint form.

• Safeguard financial information, especially

did not say how many people brought complaints about mail going missing since February. Complaints related to the Lehigh Avenue post office have continued even after June 6, when the carrier was put on non-duty status, Krafels said. The employee, whose name has not been released, has not been indicted, or charged with a crime. U.S. attorney’s offices are generally in charge of prosecuting suspected mail theft.

A U.S. attorney is the chief federal law-enforcement officer in their district of the country. Theft or possession of stolen mail is punishable by up to five years in prison and fines up to $250,000, and employees convicted of theft stand to lose their jobs, according to the OIG. The OIG emphasized that the “vast majority of postal personnel are dedicated, hard-working public servants” who don’t engage in theft.

The effort to make the city “a little more agile,” Keck said, is one he has pride for. “I’m just proud of our employees and the way they’ve embraced the need for change,” Keck said. He thanked the public for funding a new police facility and school buildings, too. The recently approved plan to repurpose byproduct gas — referred to as the “biogas” project — from Littleton and Englewood’s wastewater-treatment process had Keck’s support as well. That plan will reduce pollution and possibly earn the cities millions in profit. In the end, Keck said his path to and from Englewood was influenced by his family and not by the tumultuous politics the city’s residents and council find themselves in today. His family moved here partly to take care of his wife’s family, he said. His wife graduated from Heritage High School in Littleton. The decision to step down as city manager to take a private-sector job in another state was influenced by his family too, but it will be difficult to leave, he said. “We love Englewood,” Keck said. “We’ve been very deeply involved here with our neighbors, with the schools, with youth initiatives and youth programs, and we’re going to miss all that.”

Walk for suicide prevention at Coors Field BY ALEX DEWIND ADEWIND@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Highlands Ranch residents Sheri Cole and Lori Harper both lost a child to suicide. For the past year, they have been organizing the upcoming Metro Denver Out of the Darkness Community Walk, an annual fundraising event to bring hope and healing to others who have been affected by suicide. “It’s just nice to know you are not alone, because you feel so alone when it happens,” said Harper, who lost her

daughter to suicide four years ago. More than 3,500 people are expected at this year’s walk at Coors Field in Denver on Sept. 22. Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. and the opening ceremony is at 10 a.m. To avoid long lines, participants can register online at afsp.donordrive.com until noon Sept. 21. Hosted by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, the fundraiser features a three-mile walk, mental health resources, silent auction, butterfly-release ceremony and work-

She added they have experienced, quality technicians working on the vehicles. She said Howard Wink has been a technician with the company for 22 years and Ryan Burke, her son, had worked for the shop for 15 years. Pat Burke’s family was in U.S. government service. He was born in Italy and when his parents finally retired he said it was nice to live in a place knowing he would not have to be moving every two years. “I was in high school and got a job moving cars for a dealership,” he said. “One day I told the service manager the man doing the oil changes was doing it all wrong. He asked if I could do it better, I

I guess that the start of my career working on cars.” He said he and Colleen moved to Colorado from Buffalo, New York in 1976. “I worked at a couple dealerships for several years, including working at a Chevrolet dealership on Arapahoe Road,” he said. “One day I told the owner I was going to open my own shop, he wished me luck and became one of our customers.” Susan Solnick said she had B’s Auto repair her cars for 15 or 20 years. “I kept coming back because they do such good work. I also like it that they are so friendly and they always get the work done properly at reasonable cost,” she said, noting that she’s hoping to find a place “that will provide the same quality, friendly service I always received at B’s Auto.”

The walk grows each year, bringing more people together to connect and find comfort. If you or someone you know is struggling, Colorado Crisis Service is available at 1-844-493-TALK.

Colleen Burke does the accounting work for B’s Auto, the company she and her husband have owned and operated at 1236 E. Hampden Ave. for 31 years. The Burkes were not able to renew their lease and could not find another location, so their final repair job was completed on Aug. 31. TOM MUNDS

ax Tenbraak is usually a “lock” to be noticed at cross country meets. The Heritage senior typically is among the leading group of runners to finish a race, but it’s his locks of hair that many people notice most. And, his hair is shorter than usual this season after he got a mullet haircut with racing stripes last season before the state cross country meet but claimed it was “really bad” and shaved off all his hair. “I think the hair start-

ed because I got busy, got lazy and got behind in getting my hair cut,” explained Tenbraak. “I found that I liked long hair. My dad doesn’t have a lot of hair and he said I should enjoy it while I have it. He figures I will probably have thin hair like him.” Tenbraak played soccer as a freshman at Heritage before concentrating on cross country and track. “I’ve always been very good at it and have enjoyed running,” he said. “It’s a great way to push myself and see what I’m capable of. The mental toughness aspect is very important.”

COACH’S TAKE: ‘He is one of our top runners and he is a very good student. Last spring in track, he ran most of a race after losing one of his shoes..’ Brian Runyon, Heritage boys cross country coach

Q&A with Tenbraak What’s your favorite pregame meal? Usually I don’t eat a whole lot before a race because I get nervous. I usually have a sandwich of whole wheat, turkey and cheddar cheese. Who is your favorite athlete? For running, I should say Steve Prefontaine, but I also really like basketball and there’s a guy from the Denver Nuggets named Gary Harris who is a really good player and seems like a nice guy. What or who motivates you most to excel in sports? A lot it comes from within but also there are teammates that I want to do well for and help the team do as well as possible.

What is your favorite class in school and why? I really like history. It is very interesting with all the parallels of things that are happening in the past and are currently happening and just how much society and things have changed in terms of technology, social and economic aspects of how people make their livings. What do you like to do away from sports and school? I like to play basketball and I really like music a lot. I play the piano. What are your plans after high school? Hopefully go to college, major in engineering and find a career in that. I will probably run in college as well.

Have a suggestion for whom to feature in Student-Athlete Spotlight? Email Jim Benton at jbenton@coloradocommunitymedia.com

Key stats | Tenbraak ran a time of 16 minutes, 41 seconds at the Cherry Creek Steve Lohman Invitational on Aug. 25 and finished with a 16:44 at the Warrior Invitational on Aug. 31.

rvada West athletic director Casey Coons is a Hall of Famer. It is an honor that I envisaged since he was wellschooled. Coons is a fellow graduate of Denver’s Abraham Lincoln High School. Coons, who graduated from high school years after I OVERTIME did, will be part of the 24th Western State Colorado University Hall of Fame class that will be inducted on Sept. 14 in Gunnison. Jim Benton He was an offensive lineman for Western State and a 1980 graduate who played on three Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference title teams and twice played in NAIA postseason playoff games. After coaching at Black Hills State University and Western Oregon, Coons returned to Western State in 1988 as an assistant for head coach Duke Iverson. He was promoted to assistant head coach and defensive coordinator in 1991. In three seasons starting with the 1991 campaign, the Mountaineers won three conference titles, advanced to the NAIA playoffs once and made two NCAA playoff appearances. “I think I’m the first assistant coach to go into the Hall of Fame at Western State,” said Coons, who was Arvada West’s head football coach from 2002 to 2011. “We thought we were going to get fired in 1991 unless we turned it around. It wasn’t just me. So much went into it. It’s a we thing, especially in football.” Brent Tollar was one person who sent in a nomination letter. “Coach Coons created a wellbonded defense and team mentality that focused on hard work, grit and an unbreakable ideal that we always stood together as a team,” wrote Tollar. “The only thing that mattered was the name on the front of the jersey. The very foundation that I believe Mountaineer football stands for comes from someone like Casey Coons.” SEE BENTON, P26

Eagles edge Warriors in trophy game Heritage posts 28-24 in renewal of rivalry that began in 1972 BY TOM MUNDS TMUNDS@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

The Sept. 7 Arapahoe-Heritage game was everything a rivalry contest should be, with both teams making amazing offensive efforts and tough defensive plays. It was a see-saw battle, but when the final buzzer sounded, Heritage won, 28-24. The Arapahoe-Heritage rivalry dates to 1972. The winner of the game gets possession of the Brookridge Trophy, a chromed milk can has plaques attached recording the scores of each game in the rivalry. The games Arapahoe won are black plaques and the games Heritage won are red plaques. In keeping with tradition, the milk can sat on a table on the sidelines during the game. When the final buzzer sounded, Heritage players rushed over, picked up the trophy and carried it back over their heads as they returned to the field. The Heritage students rushed to the field to congratulate the team. “It was an amazing football game,” Eagles coach Tyler Knoblock said. “My hat is off to all the Arapahoe coaches and players. There were a lot of good plays both ways and that is what rivalry games are all about. It looked a little bleak for a while. We made some tough decisions and I thank my assistant coach for helping me make the right decision. We hung in there and we got the win. We need to enjoy the win this weekend and go back to work Monday to get ready for the next one because there are no easy games in this league.” Arapahoe Coach Rod Sherman agreed. “This was everything a high school ri-

On campus: News and notes from local high school sports programs Arapahoe • The boys soccer team is 5-0-1 after a 4-0 win over Littleton on Sept. 8. The Warriors’ defense has given up only two goals this season. Both those tallies were allowed in a 6-2 season-opening win over Aurora Central on Aug. 23. Senior Cameron Gail leads the team with eight goals and two assists. Senior Spencer Cobb has made 30 saves and allowed one goal in 430 minutes of action and fellow senior keeper Lucas Miller has played 50 minutes and made five saves, while allowing one goal. • Junior Kali March delivered a two-run double in the top of the ninth inning and then pitcher Kayleigh Krueger made a highlight reel, two-out defensive play with the bases loaded in the bottom of the ninth to preserve a 9-8 win over Vista Ridge on Sept. 7.

Heritage players hold the milk can trophy high in the air after the Eagles edged Arapahoe 28-24. The rivalry game dates back to 1972 and the winning team gets to keep the milk can trophy until the next Arapahoe-Heritage game. TOM MUNDS valry football game should be,” he said. “It wasn’t our best game but we played hard. My hat is off to Heritage because they played very well. They are a good team, they are well coached and they played hard. We know there are areas where we need to improve. For example, I thought we lost the battle at the line of scrimmage at times. We will spend time looking at the film of the game, and Monday we will go to work to strengthen the areas we feel need to be strengthened.” Eagles running back Gianni Palazzo scored a pair of touchdowns. Heritage scored on the first play from scrimmage as Eagles quarterback Connor Commiskey connected with receiver Terrance Ferguson on a touchdown pass that covered 78 yards. The extra point was good and the Eagles led 7-0 just 50 seconds into the game. SEE TROPHY, P26

• The football team appeared to be running out the clock but lost a fumble and ended up losing a 28-24 game to rival Heritage on Sept. 7. The setback snapped Arapahoe’s three-game winning streak against Heritage in the battle for the Brookridge Trophy. • Chris Jonell led three Arapahoe golfers with good rounds in the Sept. 4 Centennial tournament at Aurora Hills golf course. Jonell shot a 2-under par 70, Caleb Busta came in with an even-par 72 and Jack Tickle fired a 73.

BENTON FROM PAGE 23

Match point Granted, it wasn’t the U.S. Open tennis championships. It was the 13th annual Willow Creek Classic doubles tournament Sept. 5-9 at courts in the Willow Creek neighborhood in Centennial and other South Suburban courts. Tennis players from the south Denver area apparently like to wrap up the summer tennis season with competitive, tough matches that are fun and without a lot of pressure. Plus there was always food and drinks waiting at the conclusion of matches in the quaint, unsanctioned tournament in which players have to register by mail. This year 225 players entered in women’s 3.o, 3.5 and 4.0 doubles and men’s 3.5, 4.0 doubles. There was competition in 6.5, 7.0, 7.5 and 8.0 mixed doubles. The tourney concluded with an eightgame pro set mixed doubles event. “The tournament does attract good tennis players who feel welcome and are not intimidated,” said tournament organizer Rick Bolin. “What sets the

tournament apart from other tournaments is that people love how social it is, how friendly it is and we as organizers go out of our way to make sure there is food and drinks available. The fridge is fully stocked. “We attract great tennis players from all over the south metro area from Highlands Ranch, Ken Caryl, Parker, the Pinery, and last year we had four women who came down from Aspen. We allowed as many people to register as we could find courts and then we had to stop.” Willow Creek resident Jamele Leyden has played in the tournament since it started. “Even if you are not playing there is someone that I know that is on the court,” she said. “It’s a great tournament to relax. It is well run. Everyone is playing to win but it’s such a relaxed environment and at some point you are going to be playing against people you know. Because it’s non-sanctioned there is no pressure. It’s fun.” Jim Benton is a sports writer for Colorado Community Media. He has been covering sports in the Denver area since 1968. He can be reached at jbenton@ coloradocommunitymedia.com.

TROPHY FROM PAGE 24

Both teams put points on the board, and going into the fourth quarter, Arapahoe led 24-14. The Warriors apparently padded their lead on a long touchdown run but the TD was nullified by a holding call. Heritage got the ball back and scored on a delay 38-yard run off tackle run by Grayson Gallardo to cut the Arapahoe lead to 24-21. With just under four minutes left, Arapahoe had the ball at about its own 25 yard line. On a second down and eight years to go, a Heritage defender caused a fumble and the Eagles recovered the ball inside the Warrior 10-yard-line. Palazzo carried the ball

Arapahoe quarterback Kevin Lukasiewicz keeps the ball and drives into the line during the Sept. 7 game against Heritage. The rivalry game turned on a bounce as Heritage recovered a fumble late in the game and scored what proved to be the winning touchdown. TOM MUNDS into the end zone. The extra point was good and Heritage led 28-24. The Eagles’ lead held up.
