Cherrelyn holds science fair Event encourages students to explore new areas By Tom Munds

tmunds@ coloradocommunitymedia.com Parents and students moved among the displays as they checked out the projects developed for the Jan. 15 science fair at Cherrelyn Elementary

School. Tables lined the school’s hall so there was a spot for each experiment. Each spot included a “story board” that listed the hypothesis, list of materials used, the progress of the experiment and the conclusion derived from the experiment. “This is an annual event that has been going on for a long time and I just continued it this year,” said first-year science teacher Jessica Tarkanian. “The

fair is for fourth-, fifth- and sixth-graders. This year, about 100 students took part in the event.” The teacher said she encouraged students to select a topic that interested them and then take the time to do the necessary research. Some of the projects were complex, while others were fairly simple. For instance, one project involved Fair continues on Page 11

The four-member team had a busy day Jan. 18 as they helped parents and grandparents make sure their child safety seat was installed properly. Englewood firefighter John Grimes, a certified safety seat inspector, said it appeared the event was needed. “We have inspected 15 cars in the first two hours and just about all the child safety seats in those cars were not quite installed properly,” he said. “Usually, it was not a big problem with how the seats are installed but the seat works best when it is set up correctly in the vehicle.” For example, Grimes checked the seat installation in the car owned by Denver resident Katie Walsh. He said the installation was almost correct for Walsh’s 9-month-old child except it needed more tilt. “I didn’t know about the tilt,” Walsh said. “This event is very helpful because, like all parents, I want to keep my child safe.” State law requires use of a child safety seat for children until their eighth birthday or until they weigh 40 pounds or more. Most child safety seats can be adjusted as for use as the child grows. However, the seat certification expires six years after

tmunds@ coloradocommunitymedia.com Few reminders of the vandalism damage remained Jan. 16 during a tour of the impacted area at Englewood High School. “The last of the painting is being done and we will soon be moving items back where they belong,” said Jonathan Fore, EHS principal. “It took a little longer than expected to deal with water damage because, since it was all new construction, the goal was to return it to as close to that state as possible. All the work should be done when our students return.” A trio of vandals broke into the school Jan. 12 and did thousands of dollars in damage in the STEM lab and the band, orchestra and choir rooms and in the auditorium. They smashed windows, damaged computers and broke trophies. The vandals set fire in the band room that Repairs continues on Page 19

Here’s to living life to ‘The Max’ Topher Barber climbed the tall, aluminum ladder, stopping just even with the old, wooden sailboat hanging upside down from the ceiling. He carefully drilled the framed picture of his dad — also upside down — to the center of the stern. A friend handed him a bottle of champagne and Topher tapped the boat, pouring a little onto the rim. “We now christen thee,” he said, “the S.S. Max Barber.” The small gathering of people below him raised their glasses and cheered. “He would like that,” one man said, nodding assuredly as he walked away. The tribute, sealed as dusk darkened the wintry mountain lake outside the restaurant windows, reflected the man whose gargantuan and colorful presence was notably absent. “Upside down is perfect,” said Dan Sherwood, Topher’s longtime friend, as he sat at the bar, under the sailboat. “Max was a kind of renegade who didn’t conform to much. So why conform to gravity?” Max Barber died unexpectedly Dec. 17 from an aneurysm that occurred while he was driving. He was 68. A successful contractor and owner of the popular Max Gill and Grill on South Gaylord Street in Denver, he also received national recognition in 1991 when he saved two people who fell through thin ice on Grand Lake. But to Topher, he was so much more. He was an exuberant, energizing force who grabbed tight to life and made it an exhilarating ride. “He never let a blade of grass grow beneath his feet,” Topher said, pausing, looking at the beer in his hand. “He’s my dad and he was my best friend ... It’s going to be hard without him.” Although Max had homes in Denver, Florida and France, the cabin he built with his hands in the mid-1980s in Grand Lake — on the water nestled between historic Lemon Lodge and the Grand Lake Yacht Club at the end of the town’s main street — was his favorite.

On the shores of the state’s largest natural lake, the town counted 447 residents in the 2000 census. Its one main road veers off Highway 34, just before the western entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park, and leads through a short, straight stretch of western-style buildings that have remained largely unchanged for years. “This is his home,” Topher said. “He loved being near the water, being in a small town. He loved that this town is a dead end. It was the end of the road.” It was Topher’s most consistent home, too. “I love this place,” he said. “Both me and my brother met our wives up here. My life wouldn’t be the same without Grand Lake. We wouldn’t be who we are without this place.” Growing up, Topher and his brothers Tyler and Todd spent every summer at the lake. Topher and Tyler worked at Pancho and Lefty’s, the eatery popular with locals and weekenders that’s just a one-minutewalk from the cabin. They learned how to sail — Topher even taught sailing at the yacht club. Max bought them a boat and they often competed in the annual weeklong regatta — but never won. “ ... we were always at the back of the pack and that always bummed him out,” Topher said. Last summer, two days before the regatta, Topher decided to compete when a friend who is an accomplished sailor offered to crew. Midway through the week,

Max left for an already planned vacation in Michigan. Topher was tied for first; Max eagerly awaited his daily updates. “It came down to the last race and we had to finish first — and we did,” Topher said. “I could hear the pride in his voice and knew he had tears in his eyes.” In late October, after returning from a month in France, Max headed to Grand Lake to winterize the cabin. Topher went with him. They blew out the sprinklers, cut firewood, hung out. “Just me and him,” Topher said. “It was perfect. I have no regrets about how our relationship ended. ... We told each other how we felt about each other — we loved each other.” On Jan. 10, Topher, who lives in Broomfield, decided to check on the cabin, make sure the heat was working, that pipes hadn’t frozen — and meet up with some friends to share a few stories and laughs. On the passenger seat of his Subaru, he placed a ceramic cowboy boot with a lasso around its heel — the urn holding some of his dad’s ashes, which also include the remains of a December Wall Street Journal, his favorite paper; his red, alma mater Cornell cap; a favorite Hemingway coozie; and the photo of his three sons when they were just boys, wearing cowboy hats, which he always kept in his wallet. Topher also brought a framed picture of a grinning Max, wearing a tropical shirt and white captain’s hat and holding a beer next to his cheek. A winter storm swirled gusting snow, creating moments of white-out as he slowly drove Berthoud Pass, reminiscent of the first time he, his brothers and Max had driven to Grand Lake. “Pop,” Topher said, “we aren’t turning around, are we?” At the cabin, he set the boot and picture on the dining room table, grabbed two beers — the one for Max snug in another Hemingway coozie — and tuned the CD player to Alabama’s “Mountain

Music,” his dad’s favorite and the cabin’s theme song. Then he talked to Max. And he cried. The next afternoon, Topher strolled into Pancho and Lefty’s and settled at the bar to talk with friends in the familiar eclectic atmosphere where 1,500 beer cans — all one-of-a-kind — line shelves along the walls. Also on the walls are photos of several longtime locals who have died. Hanging from the ceiling are a chair lift, a kayak, and a dummy of a man with a serape sleeping in a hammock, a margarita glass in his hand. And the old, wooden sailboat. That’s when it hit. “ ... to make that boat his — The Max,” Topher said. “He’s in the bar area looking out on the lake. It just makes so much sense.” In mid-February, a celebration of life for Max will be held at his Denver restaurant. Those who come should wear happy colors. No black. No tears. Because Max wouldn’t want crying, Topher said. He loved life too much. Topher tells this story about the Grand Lake cabin: “We’re known for staying up way too late there and having Lemon Lodge renters yell at us. One day, a couple of Lemon Lodge renters come up and say they’re trying to go to bed ... and how much longer will you guys be staying up?” Max glanced at his watch, then looked up. “We’ve been partying for 23 years here,” he said, “and think we’ve got 23 more to go.” Cheers.

But bill opponents and Democratic committee members said those fears are overblown. “I’m not aware of widespread misuse,” said Terry Scanlon of the Center for Children’s Law and Policy. “This is an unnecessary burden to put on the beneficiaries.” Other arguments against the bill had to do with lack of ATM access for public assistance recipients. Sen. Irene Aguilar, D-Denver, said that she believes the federal government’s intent is to ensure that public assistance recipients have access to ATMs, before the state does anything to restrict their use. Democratic senators shared narratives about elderly and disabled persons having to go out of their way to find ATMs. In some cases, the closest neighborhood cash dispensaries are found inside liquor stores, or pot shops, they said. Those persons are not using public assistance to buy pot; they’re just trying to get cash to get on the bus, bill opponents said. “If you’ve ever known anyone who has been on cash assistance, like I have, it’s not something you abuse,” said Sen. Jessie Ulibarri, D-Commerce City.

gays to file taxes jointly

Legislation comes on heels of Supreme Court decision By Vic Vela

vvela@coloradocommunitymedia. com A bill that would allow married gay couples living in Colorado to file joint state tax returns is on its way to a vote in the state Senate, after it passed a legislative committee on Jan. 14. However, Senate Bill 19 applies only to married couples, not those who are involved in a civil union, which became legal in Colorado last year. Senate Bill 19 requires that gay couples who married out of state or in another country, and who now reside here, file their state taxes the same as they do at the federal level, either through joint or individual returns. That’s regardless of the fact that Colorado does not recognize same-sex marriage. Sen. Pat Steadman, D-Denver, a bill sponsor, told the Senate Finance Committee that the bill aims to do away with confusion on the part of legally married gay couples who can file joint tax returns federally, but were not able to do the same at the state level. “The reason I’ve introduced this bill is because we have confusing issues in the statute,” Steadman told the committee. Steadman’s bill passed the committee, following a 3-2 party line vote. The bill comes on the heels of a July

Supreme Court decision that struck down much of the Defense of Marriage Act. Since then, the Internal Revenue Service has ruled that legally married same-sex couples are also considered married for federal tax purposes. The federal ruling applies to all gay couples who are in legally recognized marriages, even if they reside in states like Colorado, which has a constitutional ban against gay marriage on its books. So if a gay couple gets married in New York, then moves to Colorado, they can file joint state returns here. However, the IRS is clear that only legally married gay couples can file joint returns. “The revenue department ruling expressly says they are not recognizing civil unions, or other domestic partnerships,” Steadman said. “This is purely a matter of who is married.” Even though the legislation would not affect couples involved in civil unions, the bill would make changes to an area of last year’s law that created civil unions in Colorado. The civil unions statute does not allow for joint tax filing. “That’s because it was not possible for same-sex couples to file federally (when the civil unions bill became law),” Steadman said afterward. “It did not allow for linkage for state taxes. And that was absolutely accurate when it was written. But the whole world has turned on its head since then.” The bill also makes language in Colorado income tax statutes gender neutral. It replaces “husband, or wife

or both” with “two taxpayers.” And it replaces “spouse” with “taxpayer.” The bill cleared the Finance Committee, with Democratic Sens. Mike Johnston of Denver, Andy Kerr of Lakewood and Jessie Ulibarri of Commerce City voting yes. Republican Sens. Owen Hill of Colorado Springs and Kevin Grantham of Canon City voted against moving the bill forward. Michael Norton of the Alliance Defending Freedom, a conservative group that is opposed to gay marriage, called the bill a “subterfuge,” which provides an end-run around the state’s gay marriage ban. “The people of Colorado have decided what the policy of the state of Colorado as it pertains to marriage,” Norton said. The bill would benefit couples like Lauren Fortmiller and Pamela Thiele of Lakewood, who married in California in 2008. Fortmiller told the committee that prior to the Supreme Court decision, they, like all gay couples, could only file federal taxes separately. “It was always painful, year after year, to check that box saying we were single when we are not,” Fortmiller said. Thiele concurred with her partner’s sentiment. “After all the 45 years we have worked for equality and justice, after all the sadness and anxiety, being asked this year, finally, honestly and openly, to check the ‘married filing jointly’ box on a Colorado state form will be a thrill,” Thiele said.

Veterans Memorial plans take shape Englewood High School project underway By Tom Munds

tmunds@ coloradocommunitymedia.com Organizer Kay Howard said efforts are moving, albeit slowly, in the effort to place a memorial at Englewood High School to honor all Pirates who served in the military. The proposal is to place a pentagonshaped stone with engraved emblems of the five service branches as the centerpiece. The memorial and the installation are expected to cost about $40,000. As part of the project, there will be an area of about 500 square feet around the memorial that will be covered with roughly 150 stone pavers that are being purchased by individuals in memory of a family mem-

ber or an organization honoring EHS veterans. Howard said she already has orders for about 50 pavers and that they will cut orders off in late May with plans set for a November installation. The idea of creating a memorial to honor all Englewood High students who served in the military was first discussed in 2009 during the 50th reunion of the EHS Class of 1959. Howard, a graduate of the class, began to spearhead the project last year. “We first talked about placing a memorial bench in the school,” she said. “But, after some further discussion the idea evolved into the proposal to place the memorial near the flagpole in front of the school.” The Englewood High School Military Memorial group has received nonprofit status, so donations are tax-deductible. For more information, including purchasing a paver, go to Facebook and search “Englewood High School Military Memorial.”

Justice Center showcases improvements Walkway makes security more efficient By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@coloradocommunitymedia.com Bitter cold winds whipped the flags flying for the first time over some major improvements at the Arapahoe County Justice Center Jan. 16. “I’m cold,” Arapahoe County Undersheriff Dave Walcher told the few dozen dignitaries hearty enough to gather for the ribbon-cutting ceremony, who were all in agreement. “I don’t know why we’re not going inside this building right here.” He gestured toward the brand-new walkway that connects the two buildings that comprise the justice center, now serving as a single security entrance to both. It’s a feature that’s welcomed by anyone who visits the facility in Centennial on a regular basis. To get to the main courthouse, one previously had to walk up a graded path to the main door, out of which often stretched a long line to get through security. If you happened to enter the wrong building, you’d have to repeat the process in the other building. “You’d see mothers with small children and seniors in wheelchairs sitting out in the cold,” said Judge Charles Pratt.

“The moods of people when they get to our courtrooms are going to be much better when they get there. They’re already grumpy enough to be there.” County officials began studying ways to make the entire complex, which includes the county jail, more efficient in 2005, with the goal of not raising taxes. A study concluded it would take $500 million to do everything they wanted. “Instead of moving forward, Arapahoe County took a step back to determine if there were other ways in which to address the courts’ space needs,” said County Commissioner Nancy Doty. The entire project was initially expected to cost $193 million, but it was pared down to $27 million. Other completed improvements include 10 new courtrooms, a new jury room, moving the district attorney’s office to another location, converting office space to another six courtrooms, adding 176 parking spaces and an elevator. Yet to come are another courtroom and relocating the probation department to the county’s Lima Plaza Campus. Walcher noted that in addition to the 280 employees who work there every day, 45,000 people a month are screened into the buildings. That number goes up when there’s a high-profile case, of which Arapahoe County has had more than its share of late. Alleged Aurora movie theater shooter James Holmes’ case is being heard there, as

Chamber Web Site Revamped The South Metro Denver Chamber is proud to unveil its newly designed web site. Completely redesigned from the ground up, the site features a sleek, easy to navigate format presenting the Chamber’s brand promise of Remarkable Relationships and a Thriving Community. Using unique tab headings, the site invites viewers to explore different areas they want more information about: “Get Wise” reveals facts about the Chamber, its events & areas of interest; “Talent” gives directories of Investors, staff and board members; “Trending “ features blog posts by Chamber staff, featured Investor companies, and Investor news & stories; and area information and maps for South Metro Denver area visitors and relocation can be found under “Quest”. Chamber President and CEO, John Brackney was a driving force behind the new design. “The South Metro Denver Chamber has culturally always been different, from our tagline 2 decades ago ‘Not your ordinary Chamber’, to last decade’s ‘Leadership in Motion’ to our current tag-line ‘Remarkable Relationships and a Thriving Community’. Our new website reflects our tradition of collaboration, empowerment, transformation and celebration all leading to a single word commitment to you: Prosper. “ Continually revolving header images illustrate the Chamber’s wideranging areas of interest and a video block gives the viewer a quick unconventional look at the Chamber’s philosophy. Scroll down the page and the Chamber gives a shout-out to featured companies and leaders who help our community prosper. Two months of upcoming Chamber events are also posted on the homepage with easy online access to more information and RSVP links for any Chamber event. And at the bottom of the home page, a map of South Metro Denver showing the Chamber’s location as well as its premiere Investors. The addition of the ability to post and respond to blogs was of major importance in the design of the new site. Putting ideas and issues out to the public and being able to get responses compliments the Chamber’s core values of collaboration, empowerment, transformation and celebration. All posts are categorized and searchable so interested parties can find posts going back as far as two years ago. Chamber Director of Economic Development Jeff Holwell is excited at the prospects of blogging for the Chamber. “The ability to share our thoughts regarding current business themes and get feedback strengthens our potential for creating a strong business climate. We look forward to gaining valuable insights into our business community and nurturing a stream of communication to help businesses grow.” Another useful addition to the site are the mobile capabilities it provides. It’s responsive design allows the site to contract or expand depending on the size of the viewing screen. From full-size computer screens, to tablets, to viewing on your smart phone, the site is fully functional. When viewed on a smart phone, a unique “Mobile Service Directory” powered by LokalMotion is available which gives the option to view nearby Chamber Investors and

Water purification process dedicated Englewood’s ultraviolet system improves water treatment process By Tom Munds

tmunds@ coloradocommunitymedia.com Englewood invited city officials and guests to the Jan. 15 dedication of the ultraviolet system now part of the purification process at the Alan Water Treatment Plant. “The installation of the ultraviolet system adds a process to our water purification process in order for our plant to meet all federal and state regulations,” Stu Fonda, utilities director, said at the dedication. It was explained that UV replaces chlorine as the plants primary disinfection process. The new system, used in conjunction with the plant’s current filtration system, provides two effective treatment barriers to waterborne microorganisms. The Alan Water Treatment plant is more than 60 years old and is a facility that can transform 28 million gallons of raw water a day into 28 million gallons of safe drinking water for Englewood residents. Fonda said that in 1980 the plant’s aging underground water storage tank — or clearwell — collapsed.

Water Production Manager Jason Clark, right, answers questions about the newly-installed ultraviolet water purification system at Englewood’s Alan Water Treatment Plant. The system was up and running in November and the test of the process showed that the filtered water meets or exceeds state and federal standards. Photo by Tom Munds “Over the years, we have repaired and rebuilt most of that 1959 clearwell except this area where the UV system was installed,” he said. “As it worked out, this area was available and installing the UV system here makes it a gravity-flow system so no pumps are needed for this purification

process.” Tom Brennan, utility engineer, said it took 13 months to install the UV system. The system was brought online in early November and the test results met or exceeded all state and federal standards. He said the system consists of three

ultraviolet “trains.” Each train consists of a pipe that is 24 inches in diameter that has three UV tube-shaped bulbs inside a protective tube, which allows the UV light to disinfect the water flowing through the pipe. Fonda said that the UV project cost about $4 million and included demolition of an old unused part of the underground storage tank, constructing a room for installation of the three UV trains and upgrading the electrical system. He stressed that all the work was done without interrupting plant operations. Jason Clark, water production supervisor, said that the UV is an additional water treatment process and that the new process is complicated and it took time to train all the operators on the process. At the dedication, Clark showed some of the visitors the extensive monitoring system for that process. “This system tells us how much wattage the UV bulbs are using and a lot of other information about the technical operation of the process,” he said. “Each UV train has three bulbs and we rotate the trains so each train is used equally. The bulbs have an estimated life of 5,000 hours and we can replace all nine bulbs for about $15,000.” Fonda said the fact the plant staff did much of the inspections and project managements in-house saved the city about $200,000.

Academy receives 11th Irwin award Englewood Leadership Academy receives state honor yet again By Tom Munds

tmunds@coloradocommunitymedia. com The Jan. 14 Englewood School Board Meeting included a presentation of the John Irwin School of Excellence Award to Englewood Leadership Academy, marking the 11th time the academy has received the award. The John Irwin School of Excellence Award is presented to schools that demonstrate excellent academic achievement because the schools exceed expectations on a three-year performance framework used by the state to evaluate schools. At the Colorado Department of Education, Lynn Bamberry explained the data division evaluates state proficiency test results and the awards for academic achievement is presented to about 8 percent of the schools in the state. This year, 178 schools received the John Irwin Award. “The academy has been in existence for 14 years and, over those 14 years the model has changed from a four-day a week program located away from other schools to a five-day a week school at the high school,”

said Jonathan Fore, principal. “The school population has changed somewhat but the academy continues to earn the Irwin award, identifying them as being in the top 5 percent of middle schools in the state. The Englewood Leadership Academy opened in the fall of 2000 to provide an education choice for middle school students. The first year, there were two teachers and 25 students in three classrooms. The program originally was in rooms in the now-demolished Lowell Annex. In 2009, ELA moved to a wing of Englewood High School. The ELA classrooms are now located in the newly constructed north wing along with high school classes while work continues on construction of a seventh- through 12th grade campus on the EHS site. Construction is scheduled to be completed by the end of the year and, at that time, high school classes will move into the new buildings and Englewood Middle School classes will move into the north wing. ELA will remain in its current north wing location. Eve Brady, lead teacher, has been with ELA since its founding. “I believe the biggest change I have seen is we finally feel we have a home, a space that is ours,” she said. “We have 65 students in three grades here and I think we are about the ideal size for our academy. We teach at a high academic standard and admit students who are willing to achieve those goals. I believe that is why we consis-

Englewood Leadership Academy teacher Eve Brady explains to students how she would like to see the pages done for the yearbook.

Photo by Tom Munds tently receive the state award.” Emma Hubbard, an ELA student, said the academy is a good fit for her. “I live in Englewood but went to elementary school in Jefferson County,” she said. “My dad suggested the academy and I was a little afraid at first. But it is a great school. I like the facts the classes are small and every student is here to learn.”

Fellow student Abe Stokes said he was bored in elementary school because he was academically ahead of his class. “I am here and I found it challenging,” he said with a smile. “I found, if I wanted good grades, I would have to work for them. Some subjects like vocabulary are hard and challenging but I am learning and it is fun.”

cient, gas tax revenues have shrunk. Meanwhile, both the state’s population and the annual vehicle travel miles have jumped more than 50 percent. Poll respondents support MPACT 64’s contention that transportation funds should be distributed to both urban and rural areas of the state, and be used to expand public transit options and safety. “They were also very supportive of local influence over project selection,” Gunning

said. “Again, we were very happy about that. That was one of the premises that we spent a lot of time working on with CDOT.” MPACT 64 members will meet again in March to further analyze December’s poll results and plan for the future. “We made a big step forward just by bringing together a statewide coalition,” Gunning said. “In my view, the next step is to talk about how we engage the voters in this discussion now.”

Transportation tax won’t make ballot Recent polls show voters aren’t ready to approve sales tax By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ coloradocommunitymedia.com A proposed statewide transportation tax won’t appear on the November ballot this year after a recent poll showed voters are unlikely to approve it. That doesn’t mean the tax is shelved permanently or that the MPACT 64 group — which represents all 64 Colorado counties — created to study statewide transit solutions will stop its work, however. “These issues are not going away,” said Lone Tree Mayor Jim Gunning, MPACT 64 chairman. “If there’s no funding for them today, there’s no funding for them tomorrow. So the project list just gets bigger.” Locally, the money would have helped fund the expansion of C-470 and the southeast light rail extension from Lincoln Avenue to RidgeGate Parkway. In other parts of

the state, it was targeted for the northwest light rail line from Denver to Longmont. Members of MPACT 64 hoped to put a 0.7 percent sales tax on the ballot this fall. Money raised through the tax would help fill a $772 million gap in the Colorado Department of Transportation’s annual budget. State leaders spent 18 months pondering ways to bridge that funding shortfall, and while initial surveys showed a sales tax had the best chance of gaining support, a December poll said the timing isn’t right. Respondents “didn’t see the proposed tax as onerous, but they don’t feel this is a good time to raise taxes in Colorado,” Gunning said. “In spite of the fact they’re unwilling to back it right now, they strongly endorsed transportation as a part of keeping Colorado’s economy strong.” That endorsement and other poll results suggest that someday, a transportation tax might pass. Colorado today relies on fuel taxes and license fees for construction and maintenance of its transportation infrastructure. The fuel tax hasn’t increased since 1991 and as cars grow more fuel effi-

opinions / yours and ours

Time for major immigration reform Colorado is home to roughly half a million immigrants, about a third of whom are undocumented, according to a report by the Center for Immigration Studies. More than 11 million undocumented immigrants are estimated to be in the United States. In Colorado and across the nation, industries like farming and construction rely on the labor provided by workers who are not in the country legally. To that end, the way of life enjoyed by so many Americans is dependent upon them. The system, however, under which these immigrants work, live and learn is broken. Few would argue against that point. But what’s to be done? Spearheaded by a bipartisan “Gang of Eight” — which included Sen. Michael Bennet, of Colorado — a comprehensive immigration-reform measure passed, with support from a number of Republicans, through the Democrat-controlled U.S. Senate last June. The bill, S. 744, went nowhere in the House, though. Early signs are that the Republicancontrolled House has no plans to take up a single comprehensive bill this year either, but will instead address immigration in a

our view piecemeal fashion of multiple measures. It is encouraging that the House plans to address this critical issue, and in fact, there are reports that Speaker John Boehner aims to unveil the principles of the plan before the end of the month. But as they forge ahead with a plan of their own, we urge House leaders to embrace the primary tenets of the Senate-passed measure. For one thing, S. 744 is good for business. A letter sent to the Senate last June in support of the bill was signed by myriad business organizations, including the Denver Metro, South Metro Denver and U.S. chambers of commerce. In part, the letter said: “America’s current immigration system is broken and does not meet the needs of our citizens or businesses. Improvements to our nation’s immigration policies are long overdue and are essential to continued economic growth. We especially applaud

the efforts of the bipartisan `Gang of 8’ for their leadership on this issue and commend the entire Senate for your hard work on this difficult and controversial issue.” The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, hardly a stronghold of liberal ideals, is one of the most outspoken proponents of comprehensive immigration reform in general and S. 744 in particular, touting a study that says the nation’s economy would stand to grow by $1.5 trillion over 10 years. S. 744 — also known as the Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act — takes a truly broad-based approach to reform. Among other things, the bill calls for: • More than $40 billion of initial funding to shore up border security. • Mandatory use by employers of an electronic employment verification system known as E-Verify. • Creation of a Registered Provisional Immigrant program that includes background checks and mandates the payment of application fees. RPI status may be renewed after six years and immigrants can pursue lawful permanent residence after 10 years, if they remain employed, pay taxes, pass back-

ground checks and meet English proficiency requirements. • A faster track to lawful permanent residence for undocumented immigrants who came to the United States as children and for agricultural workers. • A path to citizenship, for those who fulfill the RPI requirements, which would take 13 years or more. That last point, the path to citizenship, has been one of the more controversial aspects of the bill and was met with large resistance by House Republicans last year. We’re not sold on the necessity of it being part of an immigration overhaul, but we understand and appreciate the importance it plays for both lawmakers behind the bill and for immigrants whose dream includes citizenship. With worker shortages looming and wasteful spending rampant on a current system that isn’t getting the job done, S. 744 is, on the whole, a beacon of hope. Leaders in the U.S. House of Representatives would do well to follow the light — and act now.

The curmudgeon takes a holiday

See you at the top, or over it If you have ever experienced skiing with a group or with your family, you just may be familiar with this statement, usually shouted from a chairlift down to a family member or friend on the slopes, or even spoken into a cell phone when two parties have been separated from one another, “I will see you at the top.” Although I have been skiing in Colorado for the past 18 seasons, this still happens to our family, as a matter of fact it happened a couple of weeks ago as I was skiing with two of my children. We became separated and as I was going back up the chairlift I found myself shouting down to my son, “I’ll see you at the top!” And spending as much time skiing each year as I do, I have had the opportunity to hear the phrase “See you at the top or meet me at the top” with great frequency. This statement has special meaning for me for other reasons too. Zig Ziglar’s first book is titled “See You at the Top.” Millions of people have been impacted by this book as it is a guide to personal and professional success. Having worked with Mr. Ziglar and his family for many years, just hearing the words “See you at the top” brings back incredible and wonderful memories for me. Where is the “Top?” It’s all relative right? I mean the “Top” for you may be different than the “Top” for your neighbor or coworker. When we are skiing and get separated it’s easy to identify where the top actually is on the mountain. But in life, the “Top” can be a tricky thing for some people to identify with or just have a hard time seeing happening for themselves. The book, “See You at the Top”

focuses on things like having a healthy self-image, the importance of a positive attitude, building winning relationships, setting and achieving goals, and living with hope. So you see, it’s not targeted at any specific role or job type, it is a book that was written to meet people, all people, wherever they are on their success journey. Mr. Ziglar didn’t stop there though, as he continued to motivate and inspire millions of people around the world, he changed the ending to each one of his talks. Instead of ending with, “I will see you, and yes I do mean you at the top,” he changed it to “Hey I am going to see you, and yes I do mean you, not just at the top, I am going to see you over the top.” That little change and reminder at the end of his talks or seminars made all the difference for me personally in the pursuit of my goals as I know there is always more to strive for. And every time I hear someone else shout it from a chairlift or from the slopes I am reminded that the “Top” is only a temporary destination in our life journey and pursuit of happiness and success. It’s the attitude of going further, beyond the top, that drives me to want to work harder at my goals. For me it is about going “Over the top.” Norton continues on Page 9

It’s snowing and the dog won’t go outside. Meanwhile, the dog across the street, Taz, is outside rolling around, jumping up and down, and playing mumblety-peg with a squirrel. We have no appointments and no meetings. We are both safe and sound and warm. I have nothing to complain about today, and that may be a first. I am sure I could pick at a scab and write about an injustice or a tragedy or Detroit, but I am not going to. The curmudgeon, the fault-finder, is taking some time off to look around and smell the Sumatra. It probably won’t last very long. I think if I stayed away from the television, the newspaper and the computer for a few days I could stretch this out. But I haven’t even come close to doing that since I was in rehab, and that was 16 years ago. The rehab I went to was a sanctuary. I didn’t have to wear a hospital gown, and I wasn’t chained to my bed. We could leave for a couple of hours every day, within a specified radius, and as long as we didn’t go to our homes or to Colfax. One girl went to Colfax the night before her graduation, and she was shown the door. Anyway, I am not going to offer an opinion about Martin Scorsese’s new film, which sets a record for the f-word in an R-rated film at 506. Or offer an opinion about MSNBC’s apology for its bit on the Romneys’ adopted grandson. Or com-

If I had been wearing blinders I wouldn’t have known that Phil Everly died. I have written about the Everly brothers before. They affected my life. The first song I heard on my new transistor Toshiba in 1958 was “All I Have to Do is Dream.” That’s a good theme for living. All of Alice’s adventures were in a dream. But life is only dreamy now and then. It can hit on us with a closed fist. The big picture can smack us with worldly current events, or it can smack us in our own homes. It’s not going to smack me today. I hope. Do you recognize this? “Living is easy with eyes closed, misunderstanding all you see.” The answer is at the end of the column. Smith continues on Page 9

January 24, 2014

Another ‘show’ gets underway On Jan. 8, we started another legislative session in the Colorado State Assembly. On Opening Day, we saw the rituals of posting of the colors, student choirs performing, and our families joining us on the floor of the chamber. In our office, we had our annual open house in which Senate District 26 constituents can come to my office and chat before the beginning of the session. Some stay for the opening ceremonies and speeches. In the Senate, we heard the opening speeches by the Senate president and minority leader. This year, I thought both were articulate; the president emphasizing the need to now prioritize affordability of higher education and childcare. The minority leader’s role is to (hopefully, civilly) mention what the majority could be doing better. And that he did. So, the Opening Day was fairly representational of what openings we’ve seen in the past, with the exception of the addition of

only our second female Senate president in history. Then the following day, the governor gave his State of the State speech. And that was probably one of the best speeches I’ve heard from Gov. Hickenlooper; in both statistics and delivery. He rightly bragged about the state employees, community members and first responders from all over the state who have accomplished great feats to begin to restore

our communities damaged from fires and floods. And every statistic he mentioned showed positive economic growth for Colorado, singling out our state as being among the top in the nation in almost every category. We should be proud as a state, that despite our seemingly insurmountable odds, we still shine, and brightly. Then, the “show” began last week when we heard the minority leader take shots at the new president of the Senate. Then the next day, our annual Civility Resolution was laid over till the day after session, meaning it died. I’m not privy to all the details, but as I understand it, if we had brought it to a vote, it was promised that it would be anything but civil. So we can’t even make it through the first full week of session without bringing out threats? I will say, as a steward of conflict resolution and civility at the Capitol, I was very disappointed that we couldn’t rise above partisanship and at least all commit to civility.

I am hoping that this isn’t a foreshadowing of the whole session. We do have several senators running this year for their own seats as well as for statewide offices so it will be interesting at a minimum. Let’s hope we don’t see only ego and bravado during “the show,” but some sort of collaboration as well. As for committees this year, I am on Judiciary, Health and Human Services, Legislative Council, and vice chair of our new Joint Technology Committee. I also serve as CoChair of the Children’s Caucus and Behavioral Health Caucus. You’re welcome to join me at the Capitol anytime! Just call or email to arrange it. Linda Newell, a Democrat, is the state Senator for District 26, which includes Littleton, Englewood, Sheridan, Cherry Hills Village, Greenwood Village, west Centennial, and parts of Aurora. She can be reached at (303) 866-4846 or Linda.newell.senate@gmail.com.

Bipartisan efforts key this session The 2014 legislative session has just begun and as the scaffolding begins to come down around the refurbished dome, I wanted to take the opportunity to highlight what my colleagues and I will be prioritizing over the coming months. In 2013, Colorado endured the most destructive wildfires and floods in state history. The first bills we introduced in the House this year will assist those affected by these natural disasters and increase our ability to mitigate them in the future. The work of countless national, state and local organizations and the remarkable efforts and community spirit of Coloradans across the state have all made our ongoing recovery possible. But there is still much work to be done to make sure our battered, but not beaten, communities recover fully and thrive again. I look forward to working on the bipartisan bills we have crafted to speed and assist our recovery efforts. We will also be focusing much of our time and energy this session on improving our education system. Education funding, especially funding for higher education, was particularly hard hit by the budget cuts we had to make during the recession. While we have not fully emerged from that recession, our economy is nevertheless recovering and state revenues are increasing; this means we can finally begin to restore

What do you think about when you hear the words, “See you at the top?” Where is the “Top” for you? Have you ever imagined what could be beyond the “Top” or as Zig says,

funding for education at all levels. I am also encouraged by constructive bipartisan talks about key pieces of our education package from last year, especially ongoing discussions about ensuring our schools get the reforms and resources necessary to succeed. Increased access to quality education and making higher education more affordable are essential to ensuring future generations’ economic security. I will personally be focusing this session on enhancing our economic security and fostering a healthy growing economy. As our economy continues to change at a dizzying pace, we need to make sure that our workforce is prepared for the jobs of the 21st century, because what is rewarded today is very different from what was rewarded in decades past.

John Buckner (D-Aurora), a bill that will give the Office of Economic Development access to data about the strengths and weaknesses of Colorado’s workforce. This will allow our state to more effectively market our strengths to prospective businesses and provide more adequate training in areas where skills gaps exist. Another priority of mine is to improve the climate for small businesses in Colorado by simplifying our sales tax regime. Although Colorado is consistently ranked among the top five states in which to do business, we fall short when comparing our hideously complex sales tax system to that of other states. My Sales Tax Simplification bill, a bipartisan co-operative ef-

fort with Rep. Kathleen Conti (R-Littleton), business groups, and local governments will make it easier for entrepreneurs to expand, hire more people, and achieve their dreams. I am honored to serve in the Capitol and am committed to continuing to move Colorado forward together this session. I will continue to serve as chair of the Judiciary Committee and as a member of the Finance and Legal Services Committees. I always benefit from hearing from constituents, so please don’t hesitate to contact my office at 303-866-2921 or repkagan@gmail. com. State Rep. Daniel Kagan, a Democrat, serves House District 3, which includes Englewood, Sheridan, Greenwood Village, Cherry Hills Village and parts of Littleton and unincorporated Arapahoe County.

Dozens attend youth sports meeting Jan. 16 session focuses on future of programs in City of Englewood By Tom Munds

tmunds@ coloradocommunitymedia.com Parents, representatives of the school district, city recreation department and organizations voiced opinions and talked about how to make sure youth sports programs remain available for Englewood children when city programs cease. Jerrell Black, city parks and recreation director, explained his department had provided youth sports programs for years but, because of the economy, the money for youth sports was cut from his department’s 2014 budget. “The cuts came because city revenues are down and every department was required to reduce their 2014 budgets by 4 percent,” he said. “At parks and recreation,



  

we went through every line item in our budget and the final cuts included not spending about $150,000 to operate youth sports programs.” Black told the audience of about 40 people that parks and recreation will complete the current youth basketball programs and will offer youth baseball until the season is over in July. However, he said parks and recreation will still offer introduction sports classes like the Start Smart programs for 4to 6-year-olds. “This was a difficult decision because we want to see children engaged in sports and we don’t want to see them displaced,” he said. “We want to see youth sports programs in Englewood so his is a brainstorming session to find if there are ways to make that happen.” Time was taken to introduce the independent youth sports programs and tally the children they served. Patricia Schrock said the youth wrestling program serves about 25 boys and girls ranging in age from 4 to 14 while Englewood Youth Sports Association representative Amanda Mestas said

about 200 children take part in EYSA baseball, softball, football and basketball program. Also, Misha Roland said Englewood Soccer Association offers programs for 5- to 19-year-olds with about 200 in the fall and 300 in the spring playing on association teams. Costs were discussed. Black said the cost of paying an administrator for youth sports as well as coaches and officials plus equipment accounted for the $150,000 cost of the programs offered by parks and recreation. He added that the $25 to $45 fee per player brought in about $44,000 a year. In response, representatives of the youth sports associations all noted they relied on volunteers to serve as coaches and officials which could reduce the cost of providing youth sports programs. The audience was divided into five focus groups and then reassembled to talk about the key points discussed. Points raised by the groups included a key is communication and letting the people of Englewood know about this issue. Other ideas included seeking sponsors

and grants to help pay for the programs but it was also stressed that the cost per player should be kept as low as possible for Englewood children. Mayor Randy Penn said he was pleasantly surprised by the large turnout and the enthusiasm of the individuals and organizations seeking to make sure youth sports programs would be available in Englewood. “We need to make sure this isn’t a onetime meeting but that the enthusiasm and effort to continue youth sports program doesn’t fade away,” he said. “This needs to be a starting point and we need to get more people and organizations involved for our kids.” Black said there will be a follow-up meeting with at least one member of each of the groups attending the meeting. He added that all meetings are open to the public. He then said that, following the smaller group meeting, there will be another meeting on the same format as used Jan. 16 to discuss ideas and options. The meeting dates will be announced and publicized as soon as they are set.

Staff report The search turned up no devices but a bomb threat closed down the Sports Authority headquarters complex for about four hours Jan. 20. About 3:40 p.m., the Englewood police and fire departments were called to the complex to investigate a bomb threat. The Sports Authority complex is housed in two large buildings facing each other at 1050 and 1090 W. Hampden Ave. According to the police report, witnesses told officers a man called the corporate offices, claiming there was a bomb in the building set to go off in about half an hour. Englewood police helped corporate offi-

oranges in water. Isaiah Ramirez found, if you peeled the orange, it wouldn’t float, but if you didn’t peel the orange it would float. Another project involved exploring whether or not cola would dissolve a tooth. In his presentation, Vernon Adler explained he placed a tooth in a jar filled with cola and, in 14 hours, the acid in the cola dissolved the tooth. Paolo Hercules-Flamenco, a fifth-grader, said the Internet helped her prepare her experiment to change an egg to a material with the consistency of Silly Putty. “I found information on a website called Science Buddy,” she said. “The idea sounded like fun so I decided to try it.”

manufacture. The event, sponsored by John Elway Chevrolet, was in the dealership’s maintenance area and it was staffed by two Englewood firefighters and two Swedish Medical Center nurses. Englewood firefighter Jessie Olson said individuals have to attend a 32-hour course in ordered to be certified to inspect child safety seat installations. He said each inspector must be recertified every two years and to receive recertification, the inspector has to attend a six-hour course. Most of the time, there were two vehicles in the inspection bay and often a car or two in line. Columbine Valley resident Chuck Austin said he appreciated the opportunity to make sure the safety seat was installed

cials evacuate both buildings before the officers joined forces with members of Sports Authority Corporate Security in searching both buildings for suspicious packages or other devices. None were located. Also, the Department of Homeland Security and the Denver Sheriff’s Office provided assistance by bringing their bombunit K9 dogs to the site. The handlers and dogs assisted in the search of the buildings but didn’t locate any type of explosive device. The investigation took about four hours. The site was declared safe and Sports Authority Corporate Offices resumed normal business operations at 7:37 p.m. The fifth-grader explained the process involved putting an egg in a mixture of milk and vinegar, saying not only did she learn something, but that it was fun too. “The egg turned sort of hard in a few days,” she said. “I followed the instructions and let it dry. When it was dry it was sort of like putty. I was able to mold it into several shapes and added food coloring to make the shapes look better.” A group of district personnel judged the fair and on the evening of Jan. 15, Cherrelyn held an awards ceremony. Tarkanian handed out a number of awards in each of four categories: life science, earth science, chemistry and physics. The first-place winners were: Isabel Selman in life science; Riana DeNorch and Ben Theis in earth science; the team of Alexis Talley and Katie Moraya tied with Riley Jones in the chemistry category; and Jorden Herndon won the physics category.

properly. “I was here earlier today with my car and now I am bringing my wife’s car for the safety seat inspection,” he said. “We want to make sure the seats are put in the car the right way to keep our grandchildren safe when they ride with us.” A short time later, Lorraine Malskeit came to the event. “I needed help to install the seat correctly so, I decided to come here today when I read about this event in the paper,” the Centennial resident said. “I am starting to baby sit my granddaughter so she will be riding with me and I want to get the help I need to put her seat in the car properly.” Englewood Fire Department holds a child safety seat clinic once a month at the fire station at 3075 S. Tejon Ave. Check the city website at www.englewoodgov.com for the dates and times of the clinic. Swedish Medical Center also will do safety seat installation inspection by appointment. To check on a time, call 303788-7328.

Englewood police received a call on Jan. 19 reporting there was a woman whose face was bleeding in the area of South Cherokee Street and West Hampden Avenue. When officers arrived at the location, they found a 28-year-old woman and a 34-year-old man who told the police they had been beaten up and robbed by two unknown black men. The victims said both suspects were approximately 20-30 years old and were wearing dark clothing. The suspects were also accused of taking the male victim’s cell phone during the assault. Both victims sustained minor injuries to the face and were transported to Swedish Medical Center for treatment. Officers checked the area and didn’t find anyone matching the description of the suspects. The case is still being investigated.

According to the police report, the 27-year-old man told officers that the explosion was caused while he and the other man were trying to create hash oil. Hash oil is created through the process of cooking marijuana with select solvents.

Englewood police have arrested a 60-year-old man who allegedly threatened a couple with a hammer. According to the police report, the incident happened about 10:50 p.m. Jan. 15 at the intersection of South Acoma Street and West Layton Avenue. The victims told police that they were in their car when the man stopped his bicycle in front of the vehicle and came within a few feet of the car screaming at them and holding a hammer over his head. The couple then drove away and called police. Officers found the suspect in the 4200 block of South Acoma Street and took him into custody. The routine check showed he had a warrant for his arrest in Lakewood for failure to appear in court. He was arrested and taken to the Arapahoe County Detention Facility where he could face charges of felony menacing and charges related to the outstanding warrant.

Bronco, wife a dynamic duo in magazine Broncos wide receiver Eric Decker and his country star (pregnant) wife, Jessie James Decker — arguably the NFL’s cutest couple — are featured in an eightpicture spread in the February edition of GQ magazine and on www.gq.com. The couple are snapped in provocative poses — cooking together (at least licking the bowl), canoodling in bed, bubblebathing, “working out” in the home gym, horsing around among memorabilia — with Decker clad in distressed jeans (how distressed can they be when they fetch up to $700 a pair) and James in her unmentionables. The point of the article — other than to feature titillating photos of a ridiculously attractive couple — is a denim discussion. “When Denver’s newly ascendant star Eric Decker isn’t wearing his Broncos uniform, he’s kicking back in jeans with his (pregnant!) country-singer wife, Jessie James, and the crew of their reality series, `Eric & Jessie: Game On.’ Here, he sports the season’s best beat-up, broken-in, and distressed denim — the kind you (almost) never want to take off.” Read more at www.gq.com/style/fashion/201402/eric-decker-jessie-jamesdistressed-jeans#ixzz2qaoEpHUX. graphic by Stephanie Ogren

South suburbs tap into trend Planned area breweries reflect growing demand By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ coloradocommunitymedia.com

N

ational statistics show most Americans now live within 10 miles of a brewery. For those residing along the C-470 corridor, the drive is soon to get a lot shorter than that. Four new microbreweries will open in south suburban Denver during the first few months of 2014, and at least two others say

they have solid plans but still are zeroing in on sites. The biggest of them all — Breckenridge Brewery — plans a spring 2015 opening of its 12-acre Santa Fe Drive complex. The establishments under construction extend from Highland’s Ranch’s eastern border with Lone Tree to just beyond its western border, all two miles or less from C-470. They join a couple of existing microbreweries already garnering strong local support. South suburbia’s newest brewers say the area’s been underserved, and it’s a gap they’re happy to fill. And if the Boulder-based American Brewers Association is right, many more will come.

“Today, we have 2,700 breweries in the United States,” spokeswoman Julia Hearst said. Of those, 98 percent are small, independent, craft businesses. “In addition to that, the Brewers Association on record nationally has 1,700 in planning,” she said. “There is room for exponential growth. And there’s more demand than supply in the marketplace today.” Not since before Prohibition has beer enjoyed such heady popularity. In the late 1800s, between 3,000 and 4,000 breweries Trend continues on Page 13

What’s brewing on the horizon? A look at breweries coming soon to the south metro area. (More breweries are planned. Listed here are those that have sites and are nearing completion.)

Three Freaks Brewery Location: 7140 E. County Line Road, Highlands Ranch (near C-470 and Quebec Street) Targeted opening: Late February Owner/primary contact: Jeff Atencio More info: 3freaksbrewery.com What to expect: Atencio is a South Metro Fire inspector who’s been home brewing

for 27 years. “We’re going to be one of the smaller ones at five barrels. That’s going to give us the opportunity to be a little bit more aggressive as far as experimenting.” Three Freaks likely will open with four different beers, including a Belgian, lager and gluten-free selection. Atencio hopes eventually to expand to eight.

Blue Spruce Brewing Company 4151 E. County Line Road, Centennial (near County Line Road and Colorado Boulevard)

Targeted opening: Late February Owner/primary contact: Rick Kane More info: bluesprucebrewing.com What to expect: Kane is a former Douglas County School District teacher who’s been home brewing for 20 years. Blue Spruce will have a seven-barrel brewing system. It will offer Mexican food along with Colorado cider and wines, margaritas, 12 of his craft beers and eight guest beers. “We’re amazingly picky about our beers Brewing continues on Page 13

Strahan, Letterman talk Manning

Late-night talk show host David Letterman used his national forum to ask the question on many football fans’ minds when former football great, talk-show host and Fox-TV NFL analyst Michael Strahan guested on the show recently. “I’m so tired of people screaming, ‘Omaha’...,” Letterman told Strahan, referring to Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning’s favorite cue at the line of scrimmage. “Why does he do that?” “Because (he) likes the steaks,” Strahan said. Letterman also questioned why Manning moves around so much prior to the snap. “When he goes to the line he looks like he’s got another job,” the talk-show host said. “He looks like he’s working parttime at a gift card store picking out stuff, running around, ‘Oh my God,’ we’re out of ribbon.’ Then he comes back and takes the snap. Is he the first guy to be so darn busy at his second job as a quarterback?” “I don’t think anybody has made it look as difficult as Peyton,” Strahan said. “I’m still not buying all that is necessary. I think he says, ‘I’m doing all of this so kids at home think I’m cool.’ There’s no way, Dave, the other 10 guys on offense understand all that stuff. They’re not that smart.”

operated in the United States, many serving as neighborhood hubs. Prohibition, which lasted from 1920 to 1933, destroyed that way of life, Hearst said. For decades after, large brewers dominated the market. “We’ve finally come back,” she said. “The reason it’s come back is because it’s become localized, and the small and independent craft brewers have finally gotten their footing. We don’t make predictions, but I can say, the future looks very bright.” Lone Tree Brewing Company co-owner John Winter was the first to venture into

Sharpe to speak at fundraiser

Heritage Square items on sale

Former Denver Broncos tight end and 2011 Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee turned TV NFL analyst Shannon Sharpe will be the keynote speaker at The Journey, the Junior League of Denver’s fundraiser to support literacy efforts in the Denver metro area, on March 13. A lesser-known fact about Sharpe is his dedication to literacy and education. It wasn’t until his early teen years that he learned to read, guided by his grandmother’s influence. All proceeds support the Junior League of Denver’s focus, which is changing lives through literacy in the Denver metro area. The March 13 event starts at 6 p.m. at the Hyatt Regency Denver Tech Center. Tickets are $125 per person. For more information and to purchase tickets, go to www.jld.org or call 303-692-0270.

the Lone Tree/Highlands Ranch market in December 2011. The business’ quick success has made Winter a trusted source for prospective brewery owners. He sees their businesses as a complement to his, not competition. “We’ll let our beer stand by itself,” Winter said. “What we’re really interested in is building the number of people who enjoy craft beer. More breweries “provides a much greater amount of diversity while at the same time (the area) becomes a more popular destination for craft beer connoisseurs.” Winter believes there’s a vast untapped market among people who currently drink brand-name beers, wine or alcohol. He thinks the proliferation and proximity of microbreweries likely will prompt some to

try — and convert to — drinking craft beer. He and other area brewers also see side markets for shuttles and bicycle tourism. Most of the existing and soon-to-open microbreweries are either on or within easy pedaling distance of the C-470 and South Platte River trails. “With Breckenridge coming on board, I have a feeling we’re going to be able to provide more than enough stops for a tour from one end of C-470 to the other,” said Jeff Atencio, owner of the nearly complete Three Freaks Brewery. “That’s what’s fantastic about this explosion of craft beer: There’s plenty of room for everyone to play, and the consumer is going to benefit from this choice because we’ll all be striving for high quality.” Hearst said collaboration among craft

His hobby quickly outgrew his garage, prompting him to open a business and share his passion. Keating describes his operation as small batch, and said the beer is infused with “a lot of fun and energy.” “My double IPA is my favorite beer to make and drink. That’s one of the beers I hope to have on opening day.” Other flagship beers include Scottish and amber ales and a chocolate bourbon stout.

brewers is key to the industry’s current and continued success, especially given the complexity of the brewing business. It also reflects a desire among beer lovers to share what they see as one of life’s true pleasures. “I would say that to open a brewery is one of the hardest, most expensive, most compliance-intensive, most demanding business tasks to do,” she said. “So why would people be persevering at such a strong rate? “This has become a little piece of the American dream.

They’re building a 7-barrel brew house with a tasting room and a summer outdoor beer garden. “We have over 30 recipes already developed,” Knose said. “Jason is a very stylistic brewer. My brewing style is a lot more experimental. So we have a ying-yang situation where he’s very mechanically driven and thorough, and I’m a little more on the creative side. So it brings it full circle in the brewing world.”

Peter Pan flies onto PACE stage Dicke hopes traditional play has elements of surprise By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ coloradocommunitymedia.com While there have been many onstage versions over the years since it was published in 1904, J.M. Barrie’s beloved tale of “Peter Pan,” the boy who didn’t want to grow up, will be true to the familiar Mary Martin version that appears occasionally on TV. Now under Disney’s careful control, it has become part of our cultural fabric and when it fills the large stage at the PACE Dicke Center in Parker, directed by Ben Dicke and produced by Starkey Theatrix, a new generation of children will experience the delight of seeing Peter, Wendy, Michael, Nana, the pirates, Indians, Banks’ nursery and Never-Never Land. “How do we make it our own? Everything is so expected,” Dicke asks. With a strong professional cast, lavish costumes and a special set built by the PACE technical crew, it promises to be a magical production. Dicke, 34, said he started the rehearsal process with a movement workshop. Lacey Connell, who has been playing

Dicke said the Foy’s employee in charge in Parker has been in the business for 15 years and flew in from Las Vegas for the job. “We have the best musical director in town, David Nehls, a fine choreographer in Matthew Peters and Laurie Klaperich brought neat colors for costumes,” said Dicke, who is excited about how the performance is coming together. “I hope it’s the Peter Pan you know and recognize — and haven’t seen before,” he commented.

Accomplished playwright David LindseyAbaire is recognized for his ability to lead his audiences into the minds of the somewhat quirky personalities he creates. Kimberly Akimbo is one of those: she is a teen-aged girl afflicted with progeria syndrome, an extremely rare genetic disease that makes the body age prematurely. Akimbo has to deal with normal teen ups and downs, a 70-year-old body and in addition, a wildly dysfunctional family and young love. Linda Suttle says it’s a dream role for her — one of several in her sights as a mature actor. Suttle, who grew up in Littleton — attending East Elementary School, Euclid Middle School and Arapahoe High School — has worked for the Littleton Police Department by day for 27 years as Victims Services Coordinator, which means she has frequent insights into personalities that function at different levels. “It’s a demanding job,” she said, “trying to help crime victims, stay on top of what’s out there, meeting with colleagues…” Evenings and weekends, however, have often been focused on theater — as actor and director. One has to conclude that her interper-

Despite Kimberly’s messy family, with a con-artist aunt, alcoholic father and hypochondriac mother, Kimberly slowly gains control of her life — but she’s dying. (16 is as long as people usually live with this disease). “It’s a long time since I’ve really loved a character — it’s heartbreaking,” Suttle said. Suttle said her first step in finding out what it’s like to be a 16-year-old girl today was to go to the mall and observe mannerisms: “they all have sleeves pulled over their hands, play with their hair and are constantly on their phones,” she said. She is excited about the skills of her fellow cast members-- some are new acquaintances. “The play is beautifully written — a perky, fun show,” she said. Her next theater project will be directing “Lobby Hero” at the Vintage Theatre, an exciting challenge.

A crucial time in U.S. history ‘The Whipping Man’ plays at Curious Theatre By Sonya Ellingboe

Lightening flashes as the front door opens and a wounded, limping man falls into the room. It is April, 1865. “Where is everyone?” he asks, clutching his leg and if you go moaning.

Richmond is in ruins and freed slaves don’t know what to do with their new status. The play pictures a key moment in American history, bringing it to a most personal level. An older black man, Simon (Cajardo Lindsey), a former de Leon slave, enters from the back of the house, carrying a lantern, and begins talking to Caleb, as he examines the wound — gangrene means

At this point, a masked man peers in the window, then enters. It’s John (Lawrence Curry), a younger former slave, who has been out stealing food, whiskey, furnishings, some very welcome coffee and more from adjoining deserted homes. Burlap bags accumulate through the evening as he keeps scavenging. Simon commands him to help with the amputation, accom-

plished in a bit of theater magic — and we’re only 30 minutes into the script. Tension lets up a bit from here on as the men discuss their mutual past in this house — including, for the slaves, occasional forced visits to the Whipping Man as punishment decreed by Caleb’s father. John, who was Caleb’s age and a close playmate, recalls a day that Caleb asked to use the whip on John, a shocking few minutes that illustrated a lifestyle now gone. Simon is pining for his wife Elizabeth and his daughter Sarah, who are with the master, he thinks. This connects to a packet of letters Caleb is carrying — written to the same

Sarah, his secret love. Simon remembers that it’s the first night of Passover and he decides to hold a Seder dinner. We learn from the director’s notes that there were about 50,000 Jews in the south at the time and masters would bring their slaves into that faith, so Simon knew the ritual and even had a family Haggadah his master had given him. The ceremony, referring to the escape of the Jews from slavery long ago, symbolizes so much. Food substitutions were made — a few pieces of hardtack served as matzoh bread. Candles were lit and John, highly literate when it was illegal to teach a slave to read,

said the prayers. “Your mother taught me the ABCs,” he told Caleb. This intimate scene and the beautifully written script bring what was a horrendous time right into the faces of the audience. As a final blow, John tells Simon that the master has sold Elizabeth and Sarah and Simon leaves to search for them, after letting John and Caleb know that they share the same father. As the play ends, the two men are alone together. Will they stay? Where does the future lead? “The Whipping Man” is absolutely stunning theater, sending a viewer home with a great deal of material for thought.

Pirates lose tough hoops battle Englewood girls fall short to Denver West By Tom Munds

tmunds@ coloradocommunitymedia. com After scoring just one point in the first quarter, Englewood fought a tough, uphill- battle, came close to taking the lead, but lost the Jan. 16 girls basketball game to Denver West, 40-33. “Tonight is like the story of our season,” Pirates coach Tome Rode said after the game. “We don’t play well in the first quarter then come out and play great in the second, third and fourth quarters. If we can figure out how to play well in the first quarter, we’ll probably win some of these games.” Englewood returned to action Jan. 21 on the road at Vista Peak and they play at Skyview Jan. 24. The Pirates are at home Jan. 28 against Elizabeth. Home games are triple-headers with the c-team game starting at 4:15 p.m., the junior varsity tipoff scheduled at 5:45 and the varsity game scheduled to start at 7:15. Admission is $5 for adults and $3 for students with school identification. A single ticket is good for all three games. The Jan. 16 Englewood-Denver West game got off to a very slow start. The Cowboys were

ahead 7-1 with 1:23 left in the first period and all those points were scored from the foul line. Then, Denver West found the range outside and stretched the lead to 15-1 by the end of the quarter. Starting in the second quarter, Englewood adopted a very aggressive defensive style which slowed the Cowboy attack, plus Englewood began to hit some of its shots. By halftime, Denver West was leading 23-13 but the Pirates scored the first six points of the third quarter to cut into the lead. The battle continued and Denver West led 26-23 going into the final quarter. Three times in the period, the Pirates pulled to within three points but got no closer. Down the stretch, the Cowboys hit their foul shots to preserve the win, 40-33. “I couldn’t be prouder of the effort of our players,” Rode said. “These kids are all heart and all guts so nothing slows them down. Their refusal to toss in the towel and to keep on battling no matter the other team’s lead defines who these players are.” Freshman Sydney Gonzales led the team in scoring with 8 points. “This was a good game for me. I felt like I sort of got into the groove and showed what I can do,” she said after the game. “Tonight, I drove to the hoop and got most of my points on inside shots. I want to work on hitting

Gonzales was Englewood’s leading scorer with a career-high eight points but Denver West got the win, 40-33. Photo by Tom Munds my foul shots and improving my outside shooting, including hitting my three-point shots.” Gonzales said she feels her quickness helps her play good defense. Also, her height helps her go after the rebounds and scoring on inside shots. Teammate Kadie Kavinsky scored 7 points for the Pirates. “It was a tough game tonight.

It was very physical out there tonight,” she said. “All of us started out flat in the first quarter. Then I started hitting some shots and so did my teammates as we tried to make a game of it. It is good to come back and make it a close game but it would have felt better if we had gotten the win.” Kavinsky said it has been a good season overall.

“We have had a couple tough losses but we are playing hard every game, we have three wins and that is more than we had last season,” she said. “I feel good about the season and I think all my teammates do too. The new coach is working with us, helping us get better so we keep going out trying to win games.”

Bruins off and running on hardwood Creek moves to 4-0 in Centennial League By Jim Benton jbenton@coloradocommunitymedia. com Yes, Cherry Creek is off to a good start in the Centennial League boys basketball chase. And, yes, the Bruins are looking ahead. Despite winning its first four league encounters, the No. 4-ranked Bruins know that they will have to continue playing well to survive in the tough Centennial League that had five of the state’s Top 10 teams in last week’s CHSAANow.com poll. Cherry Creek played at Smoky Hill Jan.

22 and will travel to fifth-ranked Overland Jan. 24, before No. 10 Grandview comes to Creek for a Jan. 29 game. Then the second round of the home-and-home league schedule begins and the Bruins have to play each one of the loop teams again. The Bruins started and finished strong in a 58-41 Centennial triumph over Mullen on Jan. 15 and improved to 4-0 in the league and 11-2 overall with a 59-49 victory over Cherokee Trail two nights later. “We’ve had a good run so far but in our league every night someone can beat you,” said Creek senior Griffin Parr. “We have to be playing every night.” Bruins coach Mike Brookhart just laughed when he was teased about the Bruins good start. “There’s a lot of season left, a lot of games to be played,” he said. “We’re happy where we are at but we know

we have to play again Friday night.” The Bruins are playing with a wellrounded team in which every player contributing. Parr is the team’s scoring leader but the Bruins have other players who can hurt opposing defenses. “Every night it could be someone else,” Parr pointed out. “We work really hard on being a total team,” added Brookhart. “We have a good group of kids that play well together. They share the ball well and they are happy when their friend scores. We have some good size at all positions.” In the Bruins’ home win over Mullen, Parr was the standout. The 6-foot-3 senior had a game-high 23 points, grabbed four rebounds, handed out three assists and blocked two shots. Cherry Creek led by 14 points several

times in the second quarter but the Mustangs made it close late, trimming the Bruins lead to five points twice in the fourth quarter. That’s when Parr took over. With Creek on top, 44-39, Parr drove to the basket for a layup with 4:28 to play that sparked a 12-2 run by the Bruins to finish the game. Parr had five of the 12 points and two rebounds and a blocked shot in the final four-plus minutes of the game. “We kind of let them get back into the game,” he said. “We were up double digits, kind of got complacent on defense and let them do whatever they wanted. I was thinking when it got down to single digits and we were turning it over and not playing good defense, we had to get some points. No one else was really doing it so I tried to.”

continuing to smash windows and trophy cases in the band, choir and orchestra rooms. They also allegedly set fire to plaques and banners. The fires triggered the school’s sprinkler system, which put out the fires. However, the sprinklers continued running and there was approximately four inches of accumulated water in some rooms before the sprinklers were turned off. Security cameras captured images of

the vandals and copies of the still photos and the video were distributed to news media outlets. The three men have been taken to the Arapahoe County Detention Facility. They will be held there until official charges related to the vandalism spree are filed by the Arapahoe County District Attorney’s Office. In a news release, the Englewood police thanked the public, the media and Crime Stoppers for their assistance in the investigation. According to Englewood Schools Superintendent Brian Ewert, the total damage is estimated to be approximately $200,000.

triggered the sprinklers. The sprinklers put out the fires but the flow continued until there was 4 inches of water in some of the rooms. “I was in disbelief when I came in and saw the damage,” Fore said. “I couldn’t seem to take it in the senseless disregard for resources and our school.” The principal said he talked to groups of students about the vandalism. He said he felt all the students were upset and took it personally that someone would do this to their new school. “The students take a lot of pride in this new school and they were angry that someone would do all this senseless damage,” he said. “The attitude in the new school is different than it used to be. The students are proud of the new school and take good care of it. For example, before we moved in here, I could walk the halls every day and pick up a wastebasket full of trash. Here in the new building, the trash I pick up would just about fill a tea cup.” Fore explained the vandals broke into the new school from the old school demoli-

tion site. He said they used a chain to smash windows and trophy cases. The broke up a couple of trophies to use the wood for the fire they set in the band-orchestra area. “The water damaged a number of school instruments,” the principal said. “The water ruined two upright pianos, an expensive set of drums, possibly a marimba and a kettle drum. Perhaps the biggest impact to our musicians is the loss of rehearsal time, which means our band probably won’t take part in an upcoming jazz competition.” Fore noted that service clubs, companies and residents have stepped up and offered to help. He said there are service clubs offering to cover the insurance deductible of $5,000 and there are local companies offering help like glass at cost or free of charge. “It is great to have so many in our community offer to help our school,” the principal said. “I appreciate the fact we have had a number of residents who live near the school come offer and tell us how sorry they were about the vandalism and offer to keep a better eye on the site for us.” Brian Ewert, school district superintendent, said the recent estimates of the cost of the cleanup and repair will be between $150,000 and $200,000, most of which will be covered by insurance.

SALOME’S STARS FOR THE WEEK OF JAN 20, 2014

ARIES (Mar 21 to Apr 19) Although you’re getting kudos and other positive reactions to your suggestions, don’t let the cheers drown out some valid criticisms. Better to deal with them now than later. TAURUS (Apr 20 to May 20) Following your keen Bovine intuition pays off, as you not only reassess the suggestions some people are putting in front of you, but also their agendas for doing so. GEMINI (May 21 to Jun 20) You continue on a highenthusiasm cycle as that new project you’ve assumed takes shape. You’re also buoyed by the anticipation of receiving some good news about a personal matter.

GALLERY OF GAMES

CANCER (Jun 21 to Jul 22) Your eagerness to immerse yourself in your new assignment is understandable. But be careful that you don’t forget to take care of that pressing personal situation as well. LEO (Jul 23 to Aug 22) This is a good time to learn a new skill that could give a clever Cat an edge in the upcoming competition for workplace opportunities. Enjoy the arts this weekend with someone special. VIRGO (Aug 23 to Sept 22) You could risk creating an impasse if you insist on expecting more from others than they’re prepared to give. Showing flexibility in what you’ll accept could prevent a stalemate. LIBRA (Sept 23 to Oct 22) Although you can weigh all factors of a dispute to find an agreeable solution for others, you might need the skilled input of someone you trust to help you deal with an ongoing situation of your own. SCORPIO (Oct 23 to Nov 21) The good news is that your brief period of self-doubt turns into a positive “I can do anything” attitude. The better news is that you’ll soon be able to prove it. SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 to Dec 21) This is a good time for Sagittarians to start making travel plans while you still can select from a wide menu of choices and deals, and not be forced to settle for leftovers. CAPRICORN (Dec 22 to Jan 19) Like your zodiacal sign, the sure-footed Goat, you won’t allow obstacles in your path to keep you from reaching your goal. Don’t be surprised by who asks to go along with you. AQUARIUS (Jan 20 to Feb 18) Let your head dominate your heart as you consider the risks that might be involved in agreeing to be a friend’s co-signer or otherwise act as his or her backup in a financial matter. PISCES (Feb 19 to Mar 20) Prioritize: Resolve to close the door and let your voicemail take your phone calls while you finish up a task before the end-of-week deadline. Then go out and enjoy a fun-filled weekend. BORN THIS WEEK: Your capacity for care and compassion helps to bring comfort to others. © 2014 King Features Synd., Inc.

CLAIM FOR APPROVAL OF PLAN FOR AUGMENTATION 2. Overview of Plan: Denver filed the application for Case No. 2009CW264 on December 29, 2009. As part of that application, the Mounding Drain associated with the Bambei-Walker Reservoir (formerly known as the Miller Reservoir and is part of the South Reservoir Complex) was included as a point of diversion for the 1,129 acre-foot fill and refill storage right. The Mounding Drain diverts groundwater tributary to the South Platte River into Bambei-Walker Reservoir. Storage of this tributary groundwater in the reservoir may cause out of priority depletions to the South Platte River. This Plan for Augmentation serves to quantify and replace the depletions in time, amount and location to prevent injury to other water rights. At times, the plan for augmentation will operate the exchanges applied for herein, when the replacement water is returned to the South Platte River below the point of depletion from the claimed Mounding Drain water rights. The South Reservoir Complex and associated Mounding Drain are shown on Exhibit A. 3. Name(s) of structure(s) to be augmented. South Reservoir Complex Mounding Drain. Remark: The information contained in Paragraphs 3.1 through 3.7 is for reference and background only as related to the structure and right to be augmented, and is not intended to change, alter or amend the information contained in the pending application or final decree to be entered in Case No. 2009CW264 WD1. 3.1.

Legal Description Using the Public Land Survey System (PLSS). The South Reservoir Complex Mounding Drain is generally located between the Burlington Ditch and the slurry wall that surrounds Bambei-Walker Reservoir. The ground water collected by the dewatering system is collected and pumped at a point located in the NW1/4 of the SE1/4 of Section 1, Township 3 South, Range 68 West of the 6th P.M., in Adams County, Colorado, approximately 1,443 feet from the east section line and 2,396 feet from the south section line. The ground water collected by the dewatering system is discharged into Bambei-Walker Reservoir at a point located in the NW1/4 of the SE1/4 of Section 1, Township 3 South, Range 68 West of the 6th P.M., in Adams County, Colorado, approximately 1,519 feet from the east section line and 2,215 feet from the south section line. A map showing the approximate location of the ground water mounding drain system pump and discharge point is attached hereto as Exhibit A. 3.2.2. Location information in UTM Format. The location of the Mounding Drain Pump is Northing: 4407702.34, Easting: 504660.60, UTM Zone 13. The location where the Mounding Drain discharges into Bambei-Walker Reservoir is Northing: 4407646.74, Easting: 504636.79, UTM Zone 13.

(CONDITIONAL). 3.4.2 Volume. Applicant seeks an annual volumetric limit of 1,129 acre-feet (CONDITIONAL) with the right to refill up to 1,129 acre-feet (CONDITIONAL). 3.5. Source of Water. Alluvial groundwater tributary to the South Platte River. 3.6. Uses. The water diverted and stored under the water right proposed herein will be used for non-agricultural irrigation, commercial, industrial and all municipal uses; including, but not limited to, domestic, mechanical, manufacturing, industrial, power generation, fire protection, sewage treatment, street sprinkling, irrigation of parks, lawns, grounds, open spaces, recreation, piscatorial, maintenance and preservation of wildlife and aesthetic values, replacement of lake and reservoir evaporation, and augmentation and/or replacement. Such water may be fully consumed by following storage and subsequent release, and by reuse, successive use, further exchange and disposition, subject to the terms and conditions of this Decree. 3.7. Place of Use. The water diverted and stored under the water right proposed herein will be placed to beneficial use wherever Denver Water may, now or in the future, legally provide water. The place of use includes Denver Water’s service area as it exists now as approximately shown on the map attached hereto as Exhibit B or may exist in the future, within Denver, Arapahoe, Douglas, Jefferson, Adams, and Broomfield Counties, Colorado. 4. Water right(s) to be Used for Augmentation. Denver owns water rights originally decreed in the South Platte River basin for direct flow irrigation uses and has changed the consumptively used portions of these rights, by decree, to all municipal uses. Denver’s transmountain water rights, decreed changed irrigation rights, and decreed nontributary water rights may be used for all municipal purposes as well as exchange, augmentation, replacement of depletions, reuse and successive uses. Water from these fully consumable sources will be made available in the amounts and at locations necessary to replace out-of-priority depletions pursuant to the plan for augmentation decreed herein. Denver retains dominion and control over its consumptive use, transbasin, and nontributary water sources after the water has been used, reused, and successively used until extinction, including its lawn and landscape irrigation return flows as determined in Case No. 04CW121, Water Division 1. Water from these sources that is once or successively used through Denver’s water system and returned to the South Platte River, and its tributaries will be made available in the amount and at locations, including, but not limited to, outfalls of the various wastewater treatment plants that discharge effluent attributable to Denver’s water service areas, necessary to replace out-of-priority depletions pursuant to the plan for augmentation decreed herein: 4.1.

APPLICATION FOR SURFACE WATER RIGHTS, STORAGE RIGHTS, APPROPRIATIVE RIGHTS OF EXCHANGE, AND APPROVAL OF PLAN FOR AUGMENTATION IN ADAMS AND ARAPAHOE COUNTIES. 2. Synopsis: The purpose of this Application is to provide water for the operation and maintenance of a series of connected, lined ponds (hereinafter “Sand Creek Park Pond System”) as a recreational amenity in the Sand Creek Park near the confluence of Tollgate Creek and Sand Creek in Adams County, Colorado. Aurora seeks a surface water right, a storage water right, appropriative rights of exchange, and approval of a plan for augmentation to replace out-of-priority depletions caused by diversion of surface water into the pond system. When the water rights claimed in this application are in priority, Aurora will divert water into and through the Sand Creek Park Pond System pursuant to those water rights. When the water rights sought in this application are not in priority, Aurora will replace any such out-of-priority depletions at or above the point of depletion, or by the exercise of appropriative rights of exchange claimed herein, from locations downstream of the points of depletion. Aurora currently estimates the annual depletions, without any inpriority fill, to be 20 acre-feet. Aurora does not claim any groundwater rights in connection with these ponds. A map showing the locations of Sand Creek Park, the exchange-from points and other points of release of substitute supply for the plan for augmentation and the lawn irrigation return flow (“LIRF”) quantification point is attached to the Application as Exhibit A.

At times when the Sand Creek Park Inlet and the Sand Creek Park Pond System are in priority, Aurora will divert water at the Sand Creek Park Inlet pursuant to the water rights decreed herein. At all other times, Aurora will divert water at the Sand Creek Park Inlet as necessary to maintain the pond system as a recreational amenity and to provide freshening flows, and Aurora will replace any out-ofpriority depletions that result from such diversions in time, place, and amount by leaving reusable LIRFs in the stream, by releasing water from Quincy Reservoir and conveying such water down Tollgate Creek to Sand Creek, by releasing water from Aurora Reservoir and conveying such water down Senac Creek to Coal Creek to Sand Creek, or by exchange up Sand Creek from the points identified in paragraph 5 of the Application to the exchanges confirmed herein. When Aurora replaces out-of-priority depletions by release of water from Quincy Reservoir or Aurora Reservoir, Aurora will account for transit losses as assessed by the Division Engineer or Water Commissioner. Some portion of the water diverted at the Sand Creek Inlet and into the Sand Creek Ponds may not be fully consumed, and may be released back to Sand Creek. To the extent the water rights are augmented by fully reusable water sources and not fully consumed during such use, and such fully consumable replacement water is released back to Sand Creek, Aurora will claim a return flow credit for such uses. Alternatively, the released water may be exchanged back up to the Sand Creek Inlet pursuant to the exchange decreed herein. 7.

Further, Aurora initiated a study to examine enlargement of the Holbrook Reservoir to further facilitate operations. During this diligence period, Aurora made payments of approximately $166,815 to Holbrook under this agreement. 10. Gravel Pit Storage: Aurora is pursuing gravel pit storage options on the Arkansas River downstream from Pueblo Reservoir to allow storage of its water rights for eventual exchange to Pueblo Reservoir. These stored rights will facilitate Aurora’s Arkansas River Basin operation, including delivery of the reusable water for the subject exchange. During this diligence period, Aurora spent approximately $67,000 toward this effort. 11. Homestake Diversion Channel: Work was done on the Homestake Diversion Channel to reduce erosion, including riprap and installation of a new roadway culvert. Once water is transported over the continental divide through the Otero Pump Station and Homestake Pipeline, it is then transported by the Homestake Diversion Channel to Spinney Mountain Reservoir in the South Platte Basin. During this diligence period, Aurora spent approximately $132,769 toward this effort. C. Colorado River Basin: 1. During this diligence period, Aurora and the City of Colorado Springs negotiated with Objectors in Case No. 95CW272(A), District Court, Water Division 5, and entered into Stipulations with many of the Objectors in that case, which adjudicated changes of water rights and augmentation plans and exchanges involving the Homestake water rights. A decree was granted in this matter on March 16, 2011. 2. During this diligence period, Aurora prosecuted Case No. 2009CW17, Water Division 5. On October 10, 2010, the Division 5 Water Court entered a decree confirming diligence and continuing in effect the conditional water rights originally decreed in Case No. 98CW270, which comprise part of the Homestake Project. 3. On June 21, 2004, the City of Aurora entered into an additional Water Exchange Agreement with the Eagle Park Reservoir Company, the Colorado River Water Conservation District, the Eagle River Water and Sanitation District, the Upper Eagle Regional Water Authority, and Vail Associates, Inc. to supplement a 1998 Water Exchange Agreement. This agreement affects operations of the Homestake water rights and deliveries of reusable water to Aurora for use in the subject exchange. On January 5, 2010, the City of Aurora entered into a Consolidated Water Exchange Agreement to supplement and merge and consolidate the 1998 and 2004 Agreements. 4. During this diligence period, Aurora has negotiated and recently executed a Recovery Action Plan Participation Agreement with the Northern Colorado Water Conservancy District, and a Ruedi Insurance Water Cost Participation Agreement with the City and County of Denver. The purpose of these agreements is to mitigate the impacts of transmountain diversions to Colorado’s front range in order to support the Recovery Implementation Program for Endangered Fish Species in the Upper Colorado River Basin. D. Protection Efforts: During this diligence period, Aurora made expenditures for legal services for participation in Water Divisions 1, 2 and 5 cases to protect the rights and interests of Aurora with regard to its water supply system, including the subject exchange. 4.3 CPW: A. Member CPW, through the Office of the Colorado Attorney General, continues to prosecute Case No. 98CW462, Water Division 1, in which it is requesting a change of the Gardener Ditch water right that will allow the water right to be used as a source of substitute supply for the subject exchange. CPW has paid an expert consultant approximately $29,000 for work on 98CW462, including site visits, meetings with various opposers and administration officials, and consultation with CPW. 4.4 ACWWA and CWSD: A. Joint Water Purification Plant: During this diligence period, CWSD and ACWWA participated in the design, construction and opening of the Joint Water Purification Plant (the “JWPP”), a water treatment facility which is co-owned by ACWWA, CWSD, and the Arapahoe County Water and Wastewater Public Improvement District and is operated by ACWWA. The JWPP was constructed specifically to fully use and reuse the alluvial water rights of ACWWA and CWSD. Nine of CWSD’s alluvial wells and several of ACWWA’s alluvial wells are specifically listed as exchange to points under the decree in 01CW284. Water which is exchanged up to the alluvial wells of ACWWA and CWSD will typically be treated at the JWPP before delivery to customers. Therefore, building the JWPP increases and supports the ability of ACWWA and CWSD to use the subject exchange. CWSD expended approximately $9,889,000 on the design and construction of the JWPP and related pipelines and facilities, within this diligence period. ACWWA expended a total of $19,560,849 for the design and construction of the JWPP. B. Well Drilling: In March 2009, CWSD re-drilled Diamond Over D Well No. 1, which is decreed as one of the upper points of diversion under the subject exchange herein. C. Integrated Water and WW System: CWSD operates an integrated municipal water supply and wastewater system within the meaning of C.R.S. § 37-92-301(4)(b), such that work on any feature of CWSD’s integrated system shall be considered in finding that reasonable diligence has been shown in the development of any and all water rights for that entire system. Since May 2006, CWSD has made the following expenditures on its integrated water system. Approximately $795,000 for construction of and improvement to alluvial wells. An average of $15,000/year for participation in the Upper Cherry Creek Water Authority. $97,783 for contributions toward joint modeling of the Cherry Creek Basin (a total of $116,828 has been authorized by the CWSD Board, including the new CCAMP 2.0 contract). D. King’s Pointe South: CWSD is negotiating an agreement with Aurora, pursuant to which CWSD would provide temporary (up to 10 years or more) water service to serve a development within Aurora known as King’s Pointe South. The proposal under negotiation is for Aurora to provide raw water supplies to CWSD under the UCCWA regional augmentation plan, to be withdrawn through CWSD’s Cherry Creek alluvial wells. Then, CWSD will treat the water supplies at the JWPP and deliver treated water to Aurora to serve King’s Pointe South. The subject exchange may be used as part of this agreement. E. Contract for Water Deliveries: CWSD is negotiating a second agreement with Aurora, pursuant to which CWSD may purchase up to 140 acre-feet per year of reusable return flows owned by Aurora, which are discharged to the South Platte River from the Metro Plant. Then, CWSD would exchange the return flows under the subject exchange for withdrawal from CWSD’s Cherry Creek alluvial wells. F. On March 10, 2010, Members CWSD and ACWWA filed in Case No. 01CW284, Water Division 1 a notice of acquisition of additional water sources to be used in UCCWA’s plan for augmentation and appropriative rights of exchange. G. ACWWA filed statements of opposition and litigated Case Nos. 01CW285, 01CW286 and 01CW287 in Water Division 1. In this litigation, ACWWA was successful in arguing that the priorities of the claimed water rights were junior to UCCWA’s storage and exchange priorities decreed in 01CW284, thereby protecting UCCWA’s ability to store and exchange the subject conditional water rights. H. Chambers Reservoir: During the subject diligence

Misc. Private Legals

sion 1 a notice of acquisition of additional water sources to be used in UCCWA’s plan for augmentation and appropriative rights of exchange. G. ACWWA filed statements of opposition and litigated Case Nos. 01CW285, 01CW286 and 01CW287 in Water Division 1. In this litigation, ACWWA was successful in arguing that the priorities of the claimed water rights were junior to UCCWA’s storage and exchange priorities decreed in 01CW284, thereby protecting UCCWA’s ability to store and exchange the subject conditional water rights. H. Chambers Reservoir: During the subject diligence period, ACWWA completed Chambers Reservoir, which has a capacity of approximately 1,400 acre-feet. ACWWA obtained the State Engineer’s approval to fill the Chambers Reservoir by pumping some of its alluvial wells that are included in the 01CW284 augmentation plan. The 01CW284 augmentation plan will provide replacement water for the well depletions, including operation of the subject exchange. This reservoir operation will increase the demand for ACWWA to operate the subject exchange. Additionally, releases from Chambers Reservoir are a source of augmentation water and may be exchanged to the upstream point of ACWWA’s depletions pursuant to the subject exchange. The Chambers Reservoir claim was added to ACWWA’s Case No. 96CW1144 pursuant to the First Amended Application filed in December of 2010. I. ACWWA Flow Project: In 2009 ACWWA contracted with United Water and Sanitation District and ECCV to develop the ACWWA Flow Project. This project when fully developed will acquire, treat and deliver 4,400 acre feet of annual average yield water rights from ditch systems in the South Platte Basin to ECCV Water Treatment Plant for treatment, then to ACWWA for use. This water will be used for ACWWA’s customers and its return flows will be used in ACWWA’s augmentation plan which will use ACWWA’s alluvial wells to supply ACWWA additional potable and non-potable water supplies. ACWWA has numerous wells that are listed as exchange points in 01CW284. Water which is exchanged up to ACWWA’s alluvial wells can be stored in Chambers Reservoir for use. Therefore, the development of the ACWWA Flow Project increases and supports ACWWA’s ability to use the subject exchange. Costs for the ACWWA Flow Project are approximately $132,000,000 for the following: Acquisition of Water Rights and System, Pipeline and Well Field Easements, Capacity in the ECCV Northern Line, Capacity in the ECCV Deep Injection Well, Capacity in the ECCV Water Treatment Plant, Capacity in the ECCV Pumpstation, Interconnect line between ECCV and ACWWA. J. ACWWA’s 2010 Draft Integrated Master Plan: During this diligence period, ACWWA expended approximately $349,000 for the initial development of its Master Plan. Starting in 2010, ACWWA developed a plan that integrated ACWWA’s potable, non-potable and wastewater systems. This plan fully relies on ACWWA’s alluvial water rights (including numerous wells that are listed as exchange points in 01CW284) and the augmentation of the use of those wells when not in priority to ensure ACWWA has an efficient system. Therefore; the development of this planning document increases and supports ACWWA’s ability to use the subject exchange. The total cost for the initial development of the Master Plan is $349,000. 4.5. ECCV: A. Case No. 00CW217: The decrees entered in Case Nos. 88CW054(A) and 88CW054(B), which adjudicated lawn irrigation return flows to be used as augmentation and exchanges sources, were combined into one unified decree and were superseded by the decree entered in Case No. 00CW217 on March 23, 2009. B. ECCV’s Northern Water Supply Project: The Water Supply Project is designed to provide ECCV with a long-term, sustainable municipal water supply for its service area located in Arapahoe County, Colorado. In order to implement the ECCV Water Supply Project, ECCV, United Water and Sanitation District, and the Farmers Reservoir & Irrigation Company entered into a Water Supply Agreement on December 18, 2003, that was amended in May 2007. The Water Supply Project is a multi-phase renewable water supply project. Phase one secured approximately 6,000 acre-feet of water rights from the South Platte River and the construction of a 31-mile pipeline, storage tanks and two pump stations. This phase of the Project now delivers renewable water from the Beebe Draw, where water is stored from the South Platte River, and then is sent down through the pipeline to ECCV’s service area. On December 15, 2009, ACWWA, United, and ECCV entered into an Intergovernmental Agreement to provide for ACWWA’s participation with ECCV and United in the Water Supply Project. The return flows from the water delivered will be used in ECCV’s augmentation plan, Case No. 00CW217, which will use ECCV’s alluvial wells to supply ECCV with additional potable and non-potable water supplies. 4.6. Other: UCCWA and its Members reserve the right to identify additional relevant efforts that may be later discovered or to make upward adjustments to amounts expended on certain projects. UCCWA and its Members have extensive water rights portfolios, extensive and complex water supply, collection, treatment and reuse systems, and an extensive number of agreements, contracts, leases, etc. related to such facilities and the use, reuse and storage of their water rights. The management, protection, and operation of the water rights and the facilities system involve numerous public departments and staff members throughout the state. UCCWA and its Members made diligent efforts with regard to this application to determine and quantify all efforts made by UCCWA and its Members toward completion of the appropriations and application of the water rights decreed in Case No. 01CW284 to beneficial use. However, it is reasonably possible that relevant efforts or expenditures may have been overlooked or need further upward adjustment. 5. Claim to make absolute: 5.1. Name of Water Right: Cherry Creek Reservoir Augmentation Pool, as described in paragraph 2.1 above. A. Date of application to beneficial use: September 12 and 13, 2013. B. Amount: 2,560 acrefeet. C. Type of use: Recreation, piscatorial and wildlife, augmentation (including augmentation of evaporation from Cherry Creek Reservoir), and exchange. D. Evidence that diversion was made in priority: On September 12 and 13, 2013, Member CPW stored 2,560 acre-feet pursuant to the Cherry Creek Reservoir Augmentation Pool Water Right described in paragraph 2.1 above. The accounting for Cherry Creek Reservoir during this time demonstrates that this amount of water was diverted into storage in priority. The capture and storage of this water in-priority storage provides a basis to make this water right absolute for all decreed types of use. C.R.S. § 37-92-301(4)(e). 6. Name and address of owner or reputed owners of the land upon which any new diversion or storage structure, or modification to any existing diversion or storage structure is or will be constructed or upon which water is or will be stored, including any modification to the existing storage pool: None. WHEREFORE, the Applicants respectfully request that this Court enter a decree: (1) finding that the Applicants have exercised reasonable diligence in the development of the above-referenced conditional water rights; (2) confirming that the above-described conditional water rights are part of an integrated water system and that due diligence as to any one component constitutes due diligence on all parts of such system; (3) awarding the abovedescribed absolute water right for the Cherry Creek Reservoir Augmentation Pool storage right described above; (4) continuing the remaining conditional water rights in full force as decreed, and for such other and further relief as this Court deems just and proper.

Water derived from the exercise of water rights Aurora acquires in the future, in accordance with C.R.S. § 37-92-305(8)(c). 5.3. Complete Statement of Plan for Augmentation: Aurora will determine the amount of net depletion caused by evaporation of groundwater exposed to the atmosphere at Triple Creek Park, as well as any consumption resulting from the requested uses. The rate of depletion will vary seasonally, but is expected to average approximately 0.06 c.f.s. over the course of a year. To the extent such depletions accrue to the stream at times the water rights described in paragraph 3 above are in priority, the depletions will be attributed to that water right. To the extent such depletions accrue to the stream out-of-priority, Aurora will replace such depletions in time, place, and amount by leaving reusable LIRFs in the stream, by withdrawing nontributary groundwater from the Triple Creek Park Well, by exchange up Sand Creek from the points identified in paragraph 4 above (including exchange of releases from Quincy Reservoir) pursuant to the exchanges confirmed herein, or by release of water from Aurora Reservoir and conveyance of such water down Senac Creek to Coal Creek. When Aurora replaces out-of-priority depletion by release of water from Aurora Reservoir and/or Quincy Reservoir and conveyance of such water downstream, Aurora will account for transit losses as assessed by the Division Engineer or Water Commissioner. Aurora’s sources of substitute supply available directly and by exchange far exceed the rate of stream depletion from the Triple Creek Park gravel pits. 6. Name(s) and address(es) of owner(s) or reputed owner(s) of land: The owners of the augmented structures, points of diversion by exchange, and points of release of substitute supply identified above, are as follows: 6.1. Triple Creek Park Ponds and Triple Creek Park Well: Aurora; 6.2. Sand Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant: Aurora; 6.3. Aurora Reservoir: Aurora; 6.4. Quincy Reservoir: Aurora; 6.5. Sand Creek Gauge described in paragraph 4.1.3 above: U.S. Geological Survey, Box 25046, Denver Federal Center, Denver, CO 80225. (8 pages)
