Council OKs sale of depot Vote clears path for letterpress museum By Tom Munds

see what we can do with music and see how far-reaching and how many people can be touched by our songs,” she said after the concert. “We have a great team of people working together and it is neat to see how much can be accomplished when people put their talents together.” She said she has always had a heart for people with mental or physical needs that probably had its roots in the fact that both her parents were teachers working with special-needs students. “However, I have been much more educated about the challenges of spinal cord injuries and mobility issues in the five years

The for-sale sign can come down, because the Englewood City Council gave approval to the final reading of an ordinance selling the Englewood Depot. The buyer, Denver resident Tom Parson, plans to restore the building and make it home to a living letterpress museum. The Aug. 19 vote approving the sale was 5-2. Mayor Randy Penn, Mayor Pro Tem Jim Woodward and Councilmembers Linda Olson, Bob McCaslin and Jill Wilson voted in favor of the sale, while Councilmembers Joe Jefferson and Rick Gillit voted against it. The decision came near the end of the long council meeting. For more than an hour, councilmembers listened to 18 unscheduled visitors, including 15 who opposed the sale and almost an hour of comments and discussion about the proposal. Like many residents opposing the sale, resident Norma Weir preferred the depot be sold to the Englewood Historic Preservation Society to further the organization’s plans to turn it into a museum. Other opponents said the sale was illegal because the 2006 Parks and Recreation Master Plan listed the depot land as a park and the charter says voters must approve the sale of park land. However, City Attorney Dan Brotzman stated there is no record of the required ordinance designating the land under the depot as a park. Since it wasn’t officially park land, he said, there was no requirement for residents to vote on whether or not to sell the depot and land under it. When it was time to vote on the issue, Penn said he would vote to approve selling the depot, but added he still would try to assist the historical society to find a building for a museum, and Mayor Pro Tem Jim Woodward said he was voting for the sale because he felt it was the best course of action for the city. Jefferson said he was voting against the sale because he didn’t agree with selling city-owned land and would prefer to lease the property. He added that he wasn’t voting against the Parson proposal and felt it could be an asset for the city. Rick Gillit, District 4 council representative, was the most outspoken opponent of the sale. “My vote not to sell the depot doesn’t mean I am against the Parsons’ proposal. They will probably do an excellent job with the depot,” he said. “However, I have always said I will never agree to sell city land. In this case, I think it is a bad deal for the city. The land is worth a lot more than the $30,000 being paid and the Parsons’ proposal will not bring taxes to the city. For that reason, I will vote against the sale of the depot to the Parsons.” After the meeting, Tom Parson said he is pleased the city approved the contract to sell him the depot. “I am excited to begin work on setting up a letterpress museum and library that I feel will attract designers, printing historians and others,” he said. “I have dreamed of setting up a living letterpress museum for years. Since I began the process to buy the depot, I have received a lot of support, including offers of the donation of valuable

Singer performs at Craig Hospital Michelle Murray also signs autographs, visits patients By Tom Munds Staff and patients applauded enthusiastically as singer-songwriter Michelle Murray filled the air with her music during an Aug. 14 visit to Craig Hospital. “We frequently make stops at hospitals and visit patients to talk about the documentary and the music,” Murray said about her itinerary on her 50-state, 50,000-movie premiere and music tour for “My Finish Line.” “My Finish Line” is a documentary about former Indy Racing League driver Sam Schmidt’s near-fatal accident that left him a quadriplegic, and how he overcame the challenges so he is now a successful IndyCar team owner. Murray said Schmidt’s experiences and her work with him inspired her to team up to write the song, “It Won’t Be If But When (Sam’s Song).” “Visiting Craig is very special to us because this was where Sam was treated after his car crash in 2000,” she said. “I know Sam was here 13 years ago, but I still feel inspired to come to Craig, talk to the patients and see all they do here.” John Dowell said he enjoyed the concert and he said he was touched by Murray’s emotional facial and body language when she sang “Sam’s Song.” “My uncle is a paraplegic and an outpatient here at Craig, and I think this song reflects his determination to again do some of the things he used to be able to do,” Dowell said. “I have a copy of the DVD of the movie and I plan to get a copy of the song for my uncle because it touched me and I believe it will inspire him.”

Michelle Murray plays the opening tune during her Aug. 14 concert at Craig Hospital. The singer made the stop during her 50-state, 50,000-mile movie premiere and music tour titled “My Finish Line.”

‘My uncle is a paraplegic and an outpatient here at Craig, and I think this song reflects his determination to again do some of the things he used to be able to do.’ John Dowell Murray began performing when she was a 4-year-old as a singer and a violinist. “I had a career as a singer and I don’t think the ‘My Finish Line’ project has changed things, but it has just been fun to

Go ahead, help make someone’s day They stand on a corner, three teenage girls in colorful summer dresses, their hands held high and clutching posterboards in neon green and pink scrawled with cheery messages: “Find the good.” “Smile - U - matter.” “Stay positive.” “Honk if you’re happy.” And many drivers do, creating an intermittent cacophony of horns of varying timbres and tempos. The girls respond with wide smiles and spirited fist pumps. Kinzi Kuhloie gives a thumbs-up as one driver leans on the horn repeatedly in a long series of honks. “Yeah!” she says excitedly. “They’re really pumped!” Kinzi is 17 and she’s been sign-holding, as she calls it, for two years. Her motivation is uncomplicated. “Life can get overwhelming and so many things can build up that you don’t find the good,” she says. “This reminds you to look for the good . . . and remember that it’s there.” Kinzi and her friends, Alyssa Hayne, 16, and Emily VonDongen, 19, have hit the streets in Highlands Ranch with their signs about twice a week this summer. The positive response, they say, keeps them coming back. “We’re making people happy,” Alyssa says, “one sign at a time.”


Kinzi, Alyssa and Emily are part of a growing grassroots crusade to spread positive thinking. She got the idea from a good friend, a student at Mesa State University in Grand Junction, who started a club to promote positivity by holding signs. In Anacortes, Wash., in May 2012, the Happiness Sprinkling Project was born when people gathered at a popular intersection and held signs saying “You are loved” and “Yes oh Yes.” The move-

ment to “sprinkle happiness” through sign-holding events has since spread to 20 cities and two countries, according to its website. Last year, in Washington, D.C., a 29-year-old man campaigned to make people smile by standing at street corners with friends holding posterboards declaring “Honk if you love someone,” “Be happy” and “Don’t be so hard on yourself.” Passersby loved them back. These spontaneous, informal events fit neatly into the emerging field of positive psychology and the study of happiness. Instead of trying to figure out why we feel sad or depressed, positive psychology focuses instead on how we can become happier and more fulfilled. The world-renowned founder of positive psychology, Dr. Martin Seligman, directs the Positive Psychology Center at the University of Pennsylvania. (You can take the free authentic happiness test on the center’s website at He contends that happiness can be analyzed into three measurable elements —positive emotion, engagement and meaning — and that the ultimate goal is to reach a state of well-being. What Kinzi and her friends are doing may not be earth-shattering in terms of establishing lasting happiness, but creating moments that make us smile or laugh or lift our spirits can make a difference that matters. Kateri McRae, an assistant professor at

the University of Denver who researches emotions, notes that studies show our brains are wired in a way that tune in more quickly to negative information. “Evolutionarily, negative information is usually more critical to deal with — and to deal with quickly — and so our brains process negative information a little bit faster,” she says. For instance, “If we discover there is something that wants to eat us out there, (the brain tells us) we should run as fast as possible.” Our brains hone in rapidly on causes of negative emotion, too. “We tend to pick out a `frownie’ face out of a sea of smiling faces pretty quickly,” McRae says. “Negative emotions can even further narrow our attention and . . . remind us of other negative things,” generating a feedback loop that keeps circulating unhappy feelings. But those same reinforcing effects manifest themselves with positive emotion also. “Being in a positive mood tends to make you more aware of the more positive things around you,” McRae says. “Remembering positive things tends to remind you of other positive things.” What Kinzi and her friends are doing, McRae says, can be clinically described as “benefit-finding” — encouraging people to look for the hidden benefits in life — a component of many therapeutic interventions. “You never know what is going to send somebody up, flip around a downward spiral into an upward spiral,” McRae says. “There is potential a sign could do that. My best guess would be that it helps a small portion of the people who drive by. You never know what’s going to turn someone’s day around. . . . Sometimes, you just need a reminder.”


For Kinzi and her friends, much happi-

ness comes from making others happy. Yes, there have been people who flip them off or yell “You suck!” as they drive by. Kinzi’s reaction: “It’s really unfortunate you guys think that way, but you need the love the most.” But by and far, reaction is overwhelmingly positive. “Some guy pulled over last week and gave us $20,” Kinzi says. “He said, `You deserve some lunch.’ That was cool.” Another driver once parked to say: “I was having a terrible day and your sign completely turned it around and gave me hope.” And the driver of a Wonder Bread truck tossed out a box of muffins. Kinzi has plans to start a club that would take the positivity from the signholding to another level, something longer lasting — “the idea if I can change your day, you’ll change somebody else’s day.” But, on this afternoon, the girls enthusiastically wave their signs in the hope of bringing a little joy to someone who could use a pick-me-up. One driver shouts through a window: “Have a good day!” “Yeah!” Emily shouts back, glee in her voice. “You, too!” A car with two young men stops, waiting for the light to change. The driver leans over and yells: “What are you guys doing this for?” Emily grins: “To make you guys happy!” He pauses a moment, looks at her, then: “Thank you for making my day.” And he eases the car into the intersection, the smile on his face celebrating a moment of unexpected and simple pleasure.

Pet fest is critter crowd-pleaser Event was fundraiser for the Humane Society By Tom Munds Hundreds of people and probably at least that many four-legged friends visited the Best of the West Pet Fest celebration Aug. 18 at Aspen Grove in Littleton. The event included pony rides, a pet parade and a pet costume contest that raised funds for the Humane Society of the South Platte Valley. The society also took the event as an opportunity to promote adoptions of some of the animals at the society. The focus on pets attracted a lot of dogs, a cat or two and a lot of other animals. There were pony rides, an opportunity to brush and pet goats, the organization Nature’s Educators had volunteers walking the midway with big snakes wrapped around parts of their body and the organization’s booth featured raptors, which included a red-tailed hawk. Charles Kelley attracted a lot of attention as he brought his three wolf hybrids to the event. The oldest, Yukon, was a timber wolf while the other two, Rocky and Spooky were part prairie wolf. In addition, there were hundreds of dogs of various sizes, shapes and colors moving up and down the midway-like area with their owners. “I brought my children here today because we love animals but I didn’t bring my dogs because I didn’t know what to expect,”

‘I think that is a success because we have had a lot of people expressing interest in the animals.’ Event planner Pam Camelio Arapahoe County resident Rick Jones said. “As expected, there are a lot of dogs here and the vast majority of these pets are very well-behaved It is fun seeing all the different kinds of dogs but I didn’t expect to get the chance for my 4-year-old to ride a pony or my 6-year-old son to pet a wolf. We are having a great time and, if they do this next year, we’ll probably bring our dogs so they can enjoy the day too.” Pam Camelio, event planner, said it took about three months work to organize and plan the pet fest. “We tried to invite vendors that were all pet related and we got a wide variety of pets and displays,” she said. “The society used its special van to bring a lot of adoptable animals to the festival. I think that is a success because we have had a lot of people expressing interest in the animals which is at least a step toward getting them adopted.” Camelio said here were a total of 11 pet adoptions during the event and the proceeds benefitting the society are still being totaled.

Rotarians wrap up water project Littleton, Somoto clubs’ joint effort puts filters in 448 homes of villagers By Tom Munds More than a year of planning, preparation and work culminated July 21 when Rotarians from Colorado and Nicaragua distributed 70 clean-water filters to residents of the small village of San Lucas. Eight Rotarians from the chapter in Somoto, Nicaragua, and Colorado Rotarians Bob Moore of the Littleton chapter and Monty Schmidt of the Westminster chapter assembled the 70 ceramic filters and gave them to the local residents selected by the local priest to receive them. Moore, who was making his third trip to Nicaragua on projects for the Casa Unida Foundation and to help with the filter projects, said the Rotarian project exceeded expectations. “The original proposal was to use the Rotarian grants to buy the materials and build 261 bio-sand filter systems,” he said. “We based the project number on the material prices from local Nicaraguan vendors. When they found out what we were doing they reduced material prices so we had money left over and it was decided to use the money to buy 180 ceramic filters.” Moore and Schmidt helped Somoto Nicaraguans assemble and distribute the last 70 filters to residents of the San Lucas area. As she received her filter, San Lucas area resident Maria Cruz, 77, smiled and hugged Somoto Rotarian Claudia Quiroz. An interpreter said Cruz thanked Quiroz and asked God to bless her and everyone who made it possible for her family now to finally have clean water to drink. The Rotarians worked with the priest to select the San Lucas area families that would benefit the most from the cleanwater filters. Yvonne Castillo, Somoto Rotary Club president, said most San Lucas area residents used water from wells or streams that contained bacteria and other contamination. She said the specially-designed ceramic filter liner contains elements that will purify water and could provide about 30 liters of safe, clean drinking water a day. The San Lucas distribution wraps up a program that began more than a year ago when Somoto Rotarians because they wanted to bring clean, safe drinking wa-

Moore and members of the Somoto, Nicaragua, Rotary Club distributed 70 of the filters to residents of the area. Photos by Tom Munds ter to families in the rural mountain areas of northern Nicaragua. The Nicaraguans talked about the project to Moore and other area Rotarians who brought the request back to their clubs. “We looked into the filter project and decided to try to work with the club in Somoto to make the project happen,” Moore said. “Money was needed to build the filters so our club, the Littleton Sunrise Rotary Club and the Aurora Gateway Rotary Club raised about $8,000. We then sent a successful request for additional financial support to the district and to Rotary International which increased the total project funding to about $21,000.” The initial portion of the project involved constructing and distributing 270 bio-sand filter systems. The container was made of plastic pipe 30 inches in diameter with gravel and sand making up the filter system. The ceramic filter systems are the same shape and size. The decision to switch to the ceramic filters was made because so many areas like that around San Lucas

area doesn’t have access to the amount of water needed to wash the dirt and debris out of the gravel and sand for a bio sand filter. A large crowd gathered near the church in San Lucas on the day the filters were distributed. Again, the container was a plastic pipe 30 inches in diameter and about 4 feet high. The ceramic filter system fit into the open top of the container so the clean water could drain into the lower portion of the system. “Some of these people walked more than an hour to receive these filters that will make a difference in their lives,” Moore said. “There were big smiles when someone’s name was called to receive a filter system. Each of them thanked us, picked up the filters and started on the walk home.” Now that the filter project is completed, the Somoto and Colorado Rotarians are discussing by email if they want to join forces on another project and, if so, what that project would be.

Contract approved for playgrounds Northwest Greenbelt area gets two facilities By Tom Munds The aging playground equipment in the Northwest Greenbelt area has been removed and crews are preparing to construct two age-appropriate sets of state-ofthe-art playgrounds. Tito Suarez brought his two children to look at the site where the new playgrounds are being built near the corner of South Tejon Street and West Vassar Avenue. “My boys played on the old playground and it wasn’t very good,” the area resident said. “I am glad they are building us a new playground. My boys are really looking forward on them.” The motion approving the contract for the project was approved at the Aug. 5 city council meeting. Dave Lee, Englewood manager of open space, presented the proposal to the council. He said the project is one that has been on the drawing board for several years but, until now, there haven’t been the funds to build two ageappropriate playgrounds.

Now the project that will cost about $228,000 will be built thanks, in part, to the Arapahoe County Open Space grant of $156,600. The city will provide the remaining $113,700 needed for the project from Englewood’s share of the county open space taxes. “The project will replace equipment that is about 20 years old and doesn’t meet current American with Disabilities Act and safety requirements,” Lee told the city council at the Aug. 5 meeting. “The project will build one set of playground equipment designed for 2- to 5-year-olds and one set of playground equipment designed for 5- to 12-year-olds.” Mayor Randy Penn said the ageappropriate playgrounds are the trend. Lee agreed and said the first project of its kind was put in Belleview Park. But, he said, the fall areas were wood chips instead of the rubber material being used on the Northwest Greenbelt project. “The new equipment is being installed on the middle section of the greenbelt, which is closest to the homes on Vassar Avenue,” Lee said. “The people in the neighborhood are excited and looking forward to the end of October when the project is scheduled to be completed.”

The old equipment has been removed and the ground cleared for construction of the two age-appropriate playgrounds in the Northwest Greenbelt area. The project at Vassar and Tejon should be completed by late October. Photo by Tom Munds

opinions / yours and ours

Local politics better without partisanship Across Colorado, budding candidates for city and town councils and school boards are wrapping up the process of gathering signatures for their nomination petitions. These citizens are working to get their names on the ballot for this November’s election, and ultimately, they are trying to win a spot on an elected board that comes with little or no pay. Voters will pick from among these candidates without a party affiliation listed for the candidates. Further, a search for candidate information on the Secretary of State’s Tracer website yields the term “nonpartisan” next to the category “party.” Indeed, these are officially nonpartisan elections they are hoping to compete in. But don’t be fooled: There are parti-

our view san races being waged for municipal and school board offices in this state. Colorado law does not prohibit a candidate from campaigning as a Republican, Democrat, Libertarian or member of any other party. In other words, a candidate can tout that he or she is a member of a certain party, secure that party’s endorsement and even run among a slate of candidates looking to grab or maintain power for that party on an elected board. And voters who have been paying attention are not likely

to need a party affiliation listed on their ballots to know who represents Team Blue or Team Red or Team Other. While it is not illegal, we believe this process violates the spirit of election law. The real spirit of serving on a city council or a school board, as we wrote in an editorial last month, should be a noble calling to public service — to make a community better. It is not promoting the platform of a major, national political organization. We believe local politics should be about people, not parties. It is particularly a shame when partisanship rears up to narrow the pool of candidates in an attempt to prevent votes from being split. Sure, when a party encourages someone not to run, it is a pragmatic move in that it increases the likelihood of

achieving a victory. But it also suppresses diversity of thought and likely keeps some very well-intentioned, capable citizens from public service. Don’t get us wrong. We’re not saying every local campaign has been taken over by partisanship. Just too many — regardless of what that number is. For now, we encourage candidates who feel a true calling to serve to stick with it. There’s nothing wrong with being a member of a political party, but if you are truly dedicated to helping the community, don’t let your affiliation dictate whether you will seek office. If you win, don’t let it determine how you will serve. Come November, we encourage voters to simply choose the best person for the job.

Make healthy homework a habit

Something is hiding under the bed I have just returned from periodontal surgery and I am in no mood to labor my thoughts, but I have a deadline to meet, so I am going to plow forward with something. I may wander. I am still on painkillers. Most people are afraid of the dentist. In fact, in some polls, going to the dentist is No. 1 on the list of things we fear most. It’s always one, or two, behind public speaking. Snakes, flying, and Rachael Ray round out the top five. See what I mean? I’m daft. I don’t fear the dentist. I should get a room in his office. I have had surgery and extractions and root canals. I had cavities drilled when I was a kid before Novocaine. I don’t recommend it. Maybe you read “A Million Little Pieces,” James Frey’s Oprah mess that has a chapter about oral surgery without an anesthetic. It’s a lie, but it’s vivid. I had a lot of dental care without an anesthetic, so being numbed now is a blessing, even though it seems like dental care in my life has been non-stop. But it isn’t the dentist that I am afraid of. I thought I would give you my list, while I am still comfortably numb. And it’s all nonsense. Or drivel. Your next assignment is to read Pure Drivel. Steve Martin. All right, here’s my list, what scares me. Country music. Joel Osteen. Flo. Nancy Grace. Pop Tarts. Lunchables. Pat Robertson. Wayne LaPierre. Postconsumerism. The Dewey Decimal System. Discount sushi. Transparency. Kierkegaard. Buffalo Bob. Bologna. Kittens. This one is too easy, he scares everyone: Richard Simmons. Family Feud. Kate Spade purses. Cosmopolitan. Gene Simmons. Paula Deen. Chaz Dean. Parakeets. Viagra commercials. ABBA. Guys and Dolls. Emoticons. Light jazz. Non-dairy whitener. Plug-in air fresheners. Joseph Prince. Mississippi. Black Friday. Wind chimes. Suncatchers. Perfume. Craig Ferguson. Bowling shirts. John Travolta’s hair color. Chick-fil-A. Spencer’s. Shepard Smith. Misty May-Treanor. Kerri Walsh Jennings. Marie Callender’s. Aunt Jemima. Betty Crocker. Uncle Ben’s. Martha

Stewart. The View. This one is too easy too: Anthony D. Weiner. Florida’s Division of Elections. Speed trap on Yale between I-25 and Colorado Boulevard. The Sixth Step. Fajitas. Mojitos. Carly Rae Jepsen. Hallmark cards. Siegfried and Roy. Pinky Lee. Crocs. Skip Bayless. Dinger. Buddy Hackett. Aimee Semple McPherson. Hamburger Helper. Brent Musburger. Lower back tattoos. Flavor Flav. Jimmy Dean sausage patties. Texas politicians. Chuck E. Cheese. Chuck Norris. It’s a long list and it’s getting longer all the time. It’s crazy out there, man. When I was a kid, my biggest fear was skeletons that were alive and running around. I would have nightmares and go climb in bed with my mother and father. I am sure they loved that. Years later in a film class at UCLA, I watched Georges Méliès’ A Trip to the Moon and there they were: lots and lots of living skeletons running around like maniacs. Turbulence. Chinese tilapia. Top Ramen. PT Cruisers. Olive Garden’s Never Ending Pasta Bowl. Peep toe wedges. Flip-flops on my insurance agent. Dulcolax. Marilyn Monroe said, “Fear is stupid. So are regrets.” She’s right, but it’s a tough call. The past is always ready to visit me, reminders are on stand-by. It takes work to look forward, otherwise I am dragged at the ankles by something I can’t change. There is one place I can go where I have no fears at all, and even though it’s just off of the dining room, it took years and years to get there. I was fearful I would never make it. My studio. There is one final fear. Sometimes I scare myself. To be honest, I kind of like it. Craig Marshall Smith is an artist, educator and Highlands Ranch resident. He can be reached at

One of the questions my kids dreaded throughout their education was when I would ask this, “Do you have any homework tonight?” Of course they hated that question, I hated it too when I was growing up and my mother would ask me the very same thing. Well it’s that time of year again when kids of all ages are settling back into the school routine and homework will be inevitable. And I think that many students get uncomfortable about the question because they would much prefer to say that there was no homework assigned or just a very little bit so that they can spend time with friends and doing anything other than their assignments. At the end of the day the only person who really suffers is the student. Surely as parents we agonize over it a little too, but we can only do so much in the way of accountability. The student has to want to succeed and be an active participant in their own learning and growth. Homework is perceived as a “thing” that has to get done, when at the end of the day it’s really about work ethic and attitude. Homework is a behavior that drives success whether we are in school, at work, or trying to grow personally or professionally. You see, we can’t manage results, we can only manage behaviors. And it is in our school days that we develop this work ethic and positive habits that will propel us in our future endeavors. Anyone reading this column can probably look back at a time when you or your child procrastinated or just avoided a homework assignment or maybe a few consecutive assignments. The outcome was that we fell farther behind and playing catch-up was infinitely harder. And we can also look back at a time when we took the time to do the homework, and how amazing it felt when we breezed through a quiz or test. Again, it’s about the behaviors that

deliver results. And as we fast forward past our school years and evaluate where we are today in our career we can probably point to specific times when we fell behind at work because we didn’t do the little extra things at the end of our day such as planning and preparing, making lists, looking at our goals, or checking off what we had accomplished. When we view this kind of work as productive we can view our homework as being healthy. It’s when we have the attitude that we would rather avoid the behavior of a little extra work that we deprive ourselves of the feeling of accomplishment and we erode our beliefs in our own capabilities and what we can truly achieve. Learning and growing is something that is a constant part of our entire lives not just during our years of schooling. We should always be “on the grow” as we look to raise the bar a little each and every day. And healthy homework whether we are a student or enjoying a career is a great way to ensure our future success. Are you keeping up with your healthy homework? I would love to hear all about it at and together let’s continue to learn and make this a better-than-good week.

Depot has rich history

Building served rail traffic but work has been empty since 1950s

our omk Englewood’s train depot that served ork rail traffic for about half a century and has sat empty for about as long has been sold e be- to Denver resident Tom Parson, who has rive pledged to historically restore the outside ment of the building while creating a living letterpa- press museum inside the facility. Englewood’s depot was built in the early 1900s and sat along the tracks near what is s now the intersection of Hampden Avenue We and Santa Fe Drive. It served the city and ook surrounding communities but, as rail freight day. and passenger travel declined in the 1950s, e a it was closed. way Residents rallied to save the depot when it was scheduled for demolition by the dehy veloper of what is now the Sports Authority out site. Eventually the building was moved to its her present location at Dartmouth Avenue and Galapago Street. There was an initial effort to restore it and make it a community museum, but that failed. s The city took possession of the building. g There was some restoration work done to der prevent further deterioration of the building, but the depot remained empty and un-

since I met Sam,” she said. “I feel honored to be spokesperson for the Sam Schmidt Paralysis Foundation. Sam is such an incredible person whose strength and spirit is an inspiration to everyone. Of course, he was the inspiration for `It Won’t Be If But When’ because he one of his greatest desires is to dance with his daughter at her wedding.” Murray said she is the melody member of songwriting teams. She said it might be a phrase, an experience or some other inspiration that provides what she calls the hook to trigger the songwriting effort.

attended. Earlier this year, the city council made the decision to seek a buyer and sent out a request for proposal to restore the building and put it to use. Three proposals were received but one was withdrawn. The Englewood Historic Preservation Society submitted a proposal to turn the depot into a museum. The group planned to submit application for grants to restore the depot and start museum operations. The Parson proposal will undertake historic restoration of the depot and turn the inside into a letterpress operation and museum using his resources. He also will seek historic restoration grants to help pay for restoration of the depot. The council gave final approval to the sale of the depot at the Aug. 19 meeting. Conditions in the sales contract include selling the building and land for $30,000. Councilmembers said their main objective was to have the depot historically restored. So, the council directed staff to have the contract require the new owners to historically restore the outside of the building and to have the sales document guarantee the city the right to match any third-party offer to buy the depot in the future. The sales document is also scheduled to include a historic easement, which means the outside of the building must not be altered. The easement is permanent and remains in force even if the depot is ever sold to a third party.

“Sometimes we get a chorus or the lyrics and my contribution is to develop a melody to fit the message,” she said. “If I start the process, I develop a melody and my songwriting partner develops the lyrics for the song.” Looking ahead, Murray said this tour and exciting chapter in her career really just sort of happened and she feels the sky is the limit. “I have always performed, done music and toured,” she said. “This venture was sort of a new direction with the documentary film and with the type of songs we write. I am excited to see where it goes because there are so many people we can connect with and touch them as they touch me. It is truly an adventure and every day is exciting.”

pursuing grants to assist with the complete restoration of the historic building. He said he will spend about $5,000 to secure the historic easement required by the contract and also expects to eventually spend $200,000 to $400,000 on historic restoration. He said he will soon begin investing his money to modernize the building by bringing in water, sewer and electrical services so the depot can be used.

The Englewood City Council has approved a contract to sell the Englewood Depot, located at Dartmouth Avenue and Galapago Street. The depot will house a letterpress museum, and a historic easement will prevent alterations to the outside of the building. File photo

Council, school board slates change Some incumbents won’t run; new hopefuls announce candidacies By Tom Munds It appears there will be races for office in November when voters will be asked to vote on Englewood City Council members in District 2, District 4 and one at-large seat; a municipal judge; and ballot issues. At the same time, registered voters living in the district will be asked to elect three members to the school board. The potential lineup of city council candidates changed recently when incumbent and Mayor Pro Tem Jim Woodward an-

nounced he would not seek re-election. He is an at-large council member and, so far, Tim Donohoo, Mark Williams and School Board President Scott Gorsky have announced they are candidates to fill the position Woodward is vacating. In the race to be the District 2 council representative, incumbent Linda Olson announced her candidacy and Aaron Reid has filed the paperwork announcing he will also seek the city council position. As of Aug. 19, no one had announced as a candidate to oppose incumbent District 4 representative Rick Gillit, and there are no declared candidates opposing incumbent Municipal Judge Vince Atencio. Residents running for city council or municipal judge must collect the signatures of at least 50 registered voters on nominat-

ing petitions to qualify to be on the November ballot. The at-large and municipal judge candidates can collect petition signatures citywide. The District 2 and District 4 candidates must collect the signatures of at least 50 registered voters who are residents of the candidate’s district. The completed petitions must be turned in to the city clerk’s office no later than 5 p.m. Aug. 26. School board members who have terms expiring in November and are eligible to seek another term are Gene Turnbull and Tom O’Connor. O’Connor was appointed to fill a vacancy on the school board in 2009. By law, to remain on the board, he must seek a full term in the next municipal election. However, O’Connor has announced he will not be a candidate in the 2013 election. There will also be another board va-

cancy because Gorsky’s term expires in November but, because of term limits, he is not eligible to seek re-election. But the district tentatively has three candidates for school board, as Turnbull has declared he will seek re-election and residents Tena Prange and Jason Sakry have declared their candidacies. All registered voters in the school district are eligible to vote for school board candidates. Like residents running for city council, school board candidates must collect at least 50 signatures of registered voters on their nominating petitions to get their name on the November ballot. Candidates begin circulating their petitions Aug. 7. The completed petitions must be returned to the executive assistant to the superintendent and school board by 5 p.m. Aug. 30.

Park designation issue will be on November ballot Residents gather signatures to have voters decide issue By Tom Munds Englewood voters will be asked in November to decide whether a list of city properties should be officially designated as parks.

Lou Ellis, city clerk, told the city council at the Aug. 19 meeting that residents collected the required number of signatures to place the issue that would change the municipal code to include official designation of park property within Englewood on the November ballot. The proposal lists the sites to be designated parks and requires a vote of the people for the city to sell any park property. The city properties listed in the proposed ballot

issue include Baker, Barde, Bates-Logan, Belleview, Centennial, Clarkson, Cushing, Depot, Duncan, Emerson, Hosanna, Jason, Miller Fields, Romans and Rotolo. City Attorney Dan Brotzman told councilmembers they could adopt the petition wording as written and it would not be on the November ballot. He also noted that the city can’t designate land it doesn’t own as a park, and he pointed out that the Hosanna site is owned by the school district and that

South Metro Denver Chamber Announces New Board for 2013-14 The South Metro Denver Chamber has announced the new members of its Board of Directors for the 2013-2014 fiscal year. Made up of business leaders from large corporations, to small one-person businesses, the 25 member board meets monthly to discuss Chamber issues and will officially begin its work on September 1st.

Other Vice Chair positions are: Steve Roper, Roper Insurance - Membership; Jeff Wasden of PROformance Apparel - Public Affairs; and Wendy Nelson, Denver Scholarship Foundation will be the Executive Committee Member at Large. Chamber President and CEO, John

Brackney is excited to begin working with the new board and appreciates the work of the former board members. “The South Metro Denver Chamber is rich in tradition for identifying talented leaders who are willing to serve. All of our outgoing and incoming members of the Board of Directors are proven leaders who are committed to serving our community and enhancing the lives of everyone they meet while improving the economy for all, most whom they will never meet.

Continuing board members

the depot would no longer be a city-owned site if the council voted to sell it, which has since occurred. Councilmember Rick Gillit made a motion to remove the “whereas” wording that isn’t in the original petition. The issue failed by a vote of 6-1, with Gillit the only vote in favor of the amendment. Councilmembers then voted unanimously to certify the question and put it on the ballot as written.

Week 2 Volleyball • Tennis • Soccer Shelby Orr, left, prepares to practice passing the ball as her teammate, Addison Silfast, is doing. The players were working on passing fundamentals during the Englewood volleyball team’s Aug. 13 practice. Photo by Tom Munds

Volleyball coach likes look of team Summer play, enthusiastic practices are encouraging By Tom Munds Several returning letter winners, a strong performance in summer leagues and enthusiastic early practices could mean Englewood High School will have a more competitive volleyball team this year. “I am pleased with what I have seen so far,” Pirates first-year coach Kristal Kostiew said. “We had two teams that both played well and gained valuable experience in the summer leagues, so we have girls on the team who know how to play volleyball. I think we are building a good program and a good team this season.”

The team is practicing daily from 4 to 6 p.m. in the high school gym as the Pirates prepare for the league opener on the road Aug. 29 at Centaurus. They have a road game Sept. 3 at Kennedy and play their first game of the season as they host the Anne Bonney Invitational on Sept. 7. This is the first season Kostiew has coached the Pirates. She played volleyball for her Connecticut high school for three seasons and was an all-state selection twice. “I earned a track scholarship and focused on the hammer throw while in college,” she said. “After college I coached varsity volleyball in my home state for three seasons. I moved to South Carolina and coached varsity volleyball for five seasons. My focus has always been physical conditioning and to have the players work to develop strong fundamental volleyball skills. Those will be our focus here.” Kostiew said the turnout has been good

and plans are to have a varsity, a junior varsity and a C team made up primarily of freshmen. She said she expects there will be a few more players joining the team as the start of school nears but, right now, there will be some players who might have to do double duty, splitting time between two of the Pirates teams on a given night. The coach tailored the Aug. 13 practice to stress physical conditioning and drills on basic volleyball fundamentals. At the start of practice, she handed each athlete a form designed for the player to record fitness progress. Items on the form included time to run a mile on the track and the number of sit-ups performed in a specific time. When the conditioning drills were completed, Kostiew had the players move to the court to begin working to strengthen their fundamentals in areas like passing and setting.

Julia Kline is one of the Pirates’ returning letter winners. She said she loves the new coach and she really likes the family-like atmosphere the players are developing. “Last season was pretty frustrating,” she said. “However, I feel this team has a lot of potential. We have good players, we are getting along well and I feel we will be a lot more competitive this year.” Kline is a setter-hitter and said she likes it when she is a hitter because it is fun to jump up and try to drive the ball to the floor. “Being a setter is fun too because you see the whole court and sort of control the action by setting the ball to one area near the net so the hitter can try to kill it,” she said. “I worked on my volleyball skills by going to camps and playing volleyball in the summer league so I feel I am a better player coming into this season. I have been working on being able to hit jump serves so I can hit the ball harder and place it where I want it to go on the court.”

Englewood boys tennis team needs players Pirates coach optimistic that number will grow By Tom Munds Thin is an understatement when applied to the turnout for the Englewood High School boys tennis team, because the Pirates had just three players on the court at the end of the first week of practice. “We have a dozen or more guys who said they were interested in playing tennis. That includes six of seven guys who have not completed all the paperwork required before they can join our practices,” coach Jim Johnson said during the Aug. 16 practice at Romans Park. “The boys tennis team has never had a lot of boys come out. But this year I think the fact school doesn’t start until September means I expect we’ll see a few more guys joining us late this month or early next month.” The small turnout is a concern because the Pirates are scheduled to play three matches before school opens. The opener is Aug. 23 at home against Arvada; the Pirates travel to Denver South on Aug. 27; and they are at home Aug. 29 against Machebeuf.

“We’ll have kids to play those matches but may not have a full team because, once players get all the paperwork completed, they must get in a specific number of practices before they can play a match and there might not be time to get those practices completed,” the Pirates coach said. “So, we’ll do the best we can and I expect we’ll eventually be able to fill all three singles and four doubles team spots on the roster.” He said athletes interested in joining the boys tennis team can meet with him as he holds practice each weekday from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. at the park at 1800 E. Floyd Ave. The Pirates do have some returning lettermen, including Gage Silfast, who played No. 2 singles last season. “I have tried to improve my game and I think the area I have improved the most is in my serve,” the senior said. “I have learned to vary the amount of spin on the ball and I have learned to improve serve placement.” He said he likes tennis and added that it is a fun game to play, but it isn’t a lot of fun to watch. “I think my serve and my forehand will be the strengths of my game this season,” Silfast said. “I look forward to getting back into competition and I guess my personal goal this season is to win more matches.”

Letterman Gage Silfast prepares to return the ball during the Aug. 16 Englewood tennis team practice. Silfast was one of three players qualified to practice that day. Photo by Tom Munds Senior Ellis Bairs played both No. 3 singles and No. 1 doubles last season. “Doubles are OK but I like playing singles better because I think it is easier to cover the court by myself,” he said. “My forehand has always been the strength of my game but now that forehand will be even better because I have learned to put spin on the ball when I hit it back over the net.”

He said he is looking forward to the season and, like his teammate, he said his personal goal is to win more matches than he did last season. The third player on the court Aug. 16 was newcomer Sean Bowering. The junior basketball player said he was coming out for tennis for the first time. He said he is eager to work hard to learn tennis skills so he can help the team.

More than a fashion statement F Playing libero means a different jersey, skill set

Go qu on

By Jim Benton

By J Merry Hammack is frequently asked why she wears a different colored jersey. Hammack is a senior on the Ponderosa volleyball team, and a libero. “Everyone in high school asks me because they have no idea,” said Hammack. “Why are you not wearing a black uniform instead of a gold one? Then I have to go through and explain.” Libero is a position that is not limited by rotation rules and can substitute freely. That’s the main reason for the different jersey so the libero can be tracked. The libero, or bro as it is sometimes called, is responsible for passing, ball control, digs and getting to every ball she can possibly retrieve. She can’t, however, attack and can serve once in every rotation. “We have a black jersey and a cardinal jersey,” said Ponderosa coach Rob Graham. “The libero must have a contrasting color. The way we present it is we give our libero a gold jersey. So we call it the gold badge of honor. When you are wearing this, everybody in the gym sees that gold badge back there and understands that we as a coaching staff say that is our best defender and passer. Only one person gets to wear the separate jersey and it’s a pretty big deal for coaches.” Chaparral coach T.R.

Facing a split-second decision Goalkeepers must be quick of mind and body on penalty kicks By Jim Benton

Penalty kicks have been labeled as a nolose situation for soccer goalkeepers. Shooters are expected to score, and the pressure is on them. If the keeper should make the save, he’s a hero. “When I work with a goalkeeper I talk to them about watching any clues the shooter might give away like where they might look at the last second, where their plant foot is, if they open their hips or not,” said Legend coach Jordan Ivey. “Then I’ll talk to them about things they can do on the line that might throw the strike off a little. In the end though I tell them to go with their gut and go all out when they dive.” There have been several studies made on penalty kicks. One done at the 1998 World Cup, showed that on penalty kicks, including those in shootouts, 70 percent of the kicks went to the opposite side from the kicker’s dominate foot. A 2011 report published in the Journal of Psychological Science found keepers dove hit-to the right 71 percent of the time when Ham-their team was losing and 48 percent when rec-ahead and 49 percent when tied. k we ESPN’s Sports Science claims saving a penalty kick is one of the toughest tasks

Goalies face shots from all angles and heights but agree the toughest is defending a penalty shot. Photo by Tom Munds in any sport and cites statistics that World Cup goalkeepers correctly picked the direction of penalty kicks 57 percent of the time but saved only 22 percent of the shots. Legend senior goalie Eric Smith knows the chances of keepers stopping penalty kicks are not good. “The odds are definitely stacked against us,” he said. “You have four different corners to dive to and pray we pick the right one. Sometimes we get a little lucky. Otherwise you don’t really have much of a chance.”

Smith has learned some tips to sway the odds a little in his favor. “The first thing a lot of coaches actually teach you is to pick a side,” he said. “And then as you get more experience, take penalty kicks in practice or you start to get experience in games or in shootouts, you learn to pick up tell-tale signs of what way a person is going to kick the ball. “So I look at the shooter and see what way he is lining up, if he’s right footed or left footed, depending upon certain signals he’s giving me, his eyes or something

I’ll pick a side to go to either high or low. Left high, I’ll pick that first, but when he runs at the ball if I see like his hips switch to the right side or see his approach differently, I’ll make a split second decision. But before he evens runs at the ball I’ll have a side picked if he doesn’t give me any other sign.” Valor Christian senior goalie Connor Georgopulos, a four-year starter, acknowledges that stopping a shot from a shooter 12 yards in front of him is difficult. “It is probably the hardest thing about being a goalkeeper,” said Georgopulos. “A lot people guess before the player even runs up to the ball. I don’t like to guess. I kind of wait until he runs up where he is opening his hips or where his foot is planted and make my decision that way. I have possibly a second to make a decision. “I’ve heard that is a no-lose situation but there are sometimes when you are close and you think you could have got there or you might have been able to get there. It still is a goal and you feel like you’ve lost but for the most part it is just luck so you really didn’t lose either way.” Cherry Creek coach Chelo Curi believes keepers need to pay more attention to the shooters than relying on luck. “Goalkeepers need to learn to recognize player movement in order to predict which way they are going to shoot a penalty kick,” said Curi. “They can also just flat-out guess one way or the other. However, there are certain clues top-level keepers learn in order to make a better educated guess on which way to go. Some goalkeepers are quite good at this skill while others are not.”

Pirates soccer team has potential The season is off to a slow start for the Englewood High School boys soccer team as only about a dozen players were on hand Aug. 13 for the second day of official practice. “We have a lot of potential with a number of good returning players, but we face challenges because, so far, so few kids are reporting to practices for this year’s team,” Pirates coach Chris Kavinsky said. “I hope more kids will hear about the team and join us because, unless more kids sign up, we won’t have a junior varsity team.” He said not having a junior varsity team hurts the Pirates boys soccer program because there isn’t a good way to help young players develop and improve their soccer skills. However, he said he is optimistic and feels more kids will join the team in the next week or so, which will enable Englewood to also schedule matches for a JV team. “I think all the fall teams are experiencing low turnouts as practice starts this year,” Kavinsky said. “I believe the low turnout is due at least in part to the fact we still have about three weeks until school starts, so there are families on vacation, kids are still working and a lot of freshmen don’t know about the sports programs.” The coach said the good thing is the team has about three weeks of practice to get ready for the season opener Sept. 4 on the road against Sheridan. The Pirates’ first home game is Sept. 10 against Fort Lupton.

Kavinsky said he generally had good turnouts for the voluntary once-a-week practices he had during the summer. He said the practices so far have been spirited, and the goal is build off what was accomplished in those sessions to help players improve their individual skills and to help the Pirates get better as a soccer team. The coach said the defense will be anchored by returning lettermen Connor Sherer and Austin Trail, and the team will be looking for players to replace graduated seniors like Cody Mikulecky, to fill vacancies in the midfield and on the striker line. The Pirates’ starting goalie, Josh Kavinsky, also graduated in May, so the coach will be looking for a player to take charge in the net. “We do have a number of lettermen we expect to be back this season who will be contenders for starting spots on the roster, and we have a couple of talented freshmen who might help us this season,” Kavinsky said. “As we get guys back, we’ll work on our system and just try to figure out a starting lineup for our team.” Trail is one of the returning lettermen the coach is calling on to be a team leader this season. “I am glad it is soccer season because soccer is one of my favorite sports,” Trail said during the Aug 14 practice. “We don’t have a lot of kids out for the team yet, but I think our team is still looking pretty good.” He said the Pirates will be young and will have a lot of speed this season. Trail said it also helps that the team has a ton of time to practice and improve soccer skills before the season starts. Trail said he feels he is a better soccer player now than he was at the end of last season. “I believe I am a smarter soccer player

Austin Trail traps a high pass on his chest during the Englewood boys soccer team’s Aug. 14 practice. Trail is among the returning veterans expected to help anchor the team this season.

I also feel the experience helped me improve my soccer skills.”


He is a defender and said that is where he likes to play, but added he’ll play any position the coach wants him to play. “My personal goals are to be a good leader and help our team get better every time we take the field,” he said.

Last year my partner and I clicked and worked together to cover the entire court, sometimes both at the net and sometimes one at the net and one back near the baseline.” Creek and Fairview are the expected to be the top contenders

Cherry Creek has dominated Colorado boys high school tennis for the past four decades. The explanation for the Bruins’ supremacy is simple - good doubles play. Creek has won 38 Colorado state tennis championships in 41 years. The Bruins have crowned 117 state champion doubles teams, 28 in No. 1 doubles, 34 in No. 2 doubles, 31 in No. 3 doubles and 24 in No. 4 doubles. “Doubles is interesting,” said Creek coach Kirk Price. “High school-level tennis players generally love singles. There are those few boys that just thrive in doubles. They love it, love the strategy and enjoy what goes on in winning a doubles match.” Over the years, Price has adjusted the way he selects his doubles teams. “Historically, I always used singles to determine the varsity team,” admitted Price. “Over the years there were half dozen great, great doubles players who never got to play varsity because they were never good enough in singles to break into the top 11 but they were among the top two or three

We use what we refer to as doubles clusters.” It takes a different kind of player in doubles to be successful. “It takes kids that are able to evaluate their opponents and the weaknesses of their opponents,” said Price. “I’ve had kids that were mentally so good in doubles and yet physically are not even close at times to the skills of the opponents. “They are not as good of tennis players with their strokes or tennis game but they are so much smarter and know how doubles works that they become state champions defeating people that are significantly better.” Senior Jake Miller was half of the 2012 state champion No. 2 doubles team with Connor Petrou, who has graduated. “Doubles are fun but I really would like to play singles,” said Miller. “We won last year because we worked well together as a doubles team. Cherry Creek tennis philosophy is to be aggressive and we usually both moved up to take control of the net and the tempo of play. Of course, we both had to be ready to move back quickly if the opponent hit a deep shot.” Harshil Dwivedi is a junior who played last season with graduated Gifford Mellick on Creek’s state champion No. 4 doubles team. “I like to play singles but my experience in doubles helped me

Europeans dominate in Colorado U.S. team loses Solheim Cup for first time on American soil By Jim Benton It was a historic day on Aug. 18 at Colorado Golf Club, but it didn’t involve a miracle on the greens. Team Europe retained the Solheim Cup with an 18-10 victory over the United States and won for the first time in seven events played in America. The win marked the first time a team from Europe has won back-to-back Cups and the margin of victory was the largest in the history of the event, which began in 1990. The United States went into the final day staring at a substantial five-point deficit. The Americans could not pull off a miracle comeback as the Europeans won 7½-4½ in the 12 singles matches played on Aug. 18. There were five singles matches that were halved, the most in history. “We took it to them and they couldn’t answer,” said Europe’s Suzann Pettersen who resides in Oslo, Norway. Pettersen was right. Team Europe played superior golf and putted much better on the quick greens. “They played some great golf this week and really deserved to win,” said U.S. captain Meg Mallon. “I give credit to them, they played well, had a hole-in-one (Anna Nordqvist on Aug. 17), a chip-in and we just didn’t have putts drop for us. The team gave it their all. I love my team. “This (Solheim Cup) is the greatest show in women’s golf. The way we played 16, 17, and 18 is what made the difference. It wasn’t for the lack of preparation because we played the golf course quite a bit. So it wasn’t like a surprise for us. It was just a matter of dropping putts on those holes and unfortunately it was the Europeans.” Over the last three holes, the Europeans held a 17-10 edge in holes won. “We just did not make the putts,” added Mallon. “I saw more putts go over the hole on our side. It wasn’t for lack of not having good rolls. We just didn’t make them. With such a young team (six European Solheim rookies) with nothing to lose, it just seemed like they were a bit looser, they were making more putts and we were not. And that’s what it came down to.” The Europeans wrapped up their second consecutive Cup victory on the 18th hole in the fifth singles match when Caroline Hedwall, a captain’s pick from Sweden who won a crucial half point to secure Team Europe’s victory over the United States two years ago in Ireland, once again delivered the clinching blow. She defeated Michelle Wie, 1 up, after coming back from a 56-minute lightning delay, with a 4½-foot birdie on the final hole. There were still seven matches left to be completed and all the Americans could do was play for pride. “I just can’t tell you how proud I am of all the players,” said European captain Liselotte Neuman. “They really played well. They just played tremendous golf.” Hedwall won all five of the matches she played becoming the first player in Solheim Cup to do so in a single tournament. “I don’t know what to say,” said Hedwall, 24. “It’s unbelievable. We knew we could win here. I was really pumped up on 17 when they blew the horn (for the lightning delay). I went in and gave a little talk to myself and I went out there and I was just as pumped up as I was before.” Stacy Lewis and Sweden’s Anna Nordqvist had the honors as the first twosome to tee off and wound up halving an up-and-down match. “I was hitting good putts, they were just lipping out,” said Lewis. “That’s golf for you. You have to stay patient,

European captain Liselotte Neumann hoists the Solheim Cup in victory during closing ceremonies Aug. 18 at the Colorado Golf Club in Parker. stay positive. I hit a lot of really good shots. I felt fortunate to get a halve.” Charley Hull, the 17-year-old from Kettering, England, who is the youngest player in Solheim Cup history, picked up a point for Team Europe with a 5-and-4 win over Paula Creamer. “After the first day, I really got used to the golf course and I just relaxed and made quite a few birdies over the last two days,” said Hull who went 2-1-0 in her Solheim debut. “I really didn’t feel nervous. Because this is how I always look at golf, I’m not going to die if I miss it. Just hit it and find it and hit it again.” Creamer, one of America’s top players, didn’t have much positive to say. “I just didn’t bring it,” she admitted. “The Solheim Cup brings the best and worst out of you.” Europe’s Carlota Ciganda whipped Morgan Pressel, 4 and 2, to set the stage for Hedwall’s decisive win. Team USA trailed the Europeans the entire three days of the competition, falling behind 5-3 after Foursomes and Four-ball on the opening day. The Americans closed to within 6½-5½ after the Foursomes Aug. 17, but disaster struck when the Europeans swept all four best-ball matches in the afternoon. The U.S. played well at times but not good enough. The Europeans made most of the big shots and big putts. The Americans had myriad putts roll inches past the cup or lip out. “Obviously, yesterday (Aug. 17) afternoon hurt us a lot,” said Lewis. “They holed putts when they needed to and hit the shots. There’s always pressure to win, whether we won it two years ago, whether we didn’t, whether we’re home, whether we are away. They’re (Europeans) getting better every year and they’re making this (Solheim Cup) what it should be. It’s good for the event.” The U.S. still leads the Solheim Cup all-time standings, 8-5, with the 2015 Solheim Cup scheduled to be played in St. Leon-Rot, Germany. “We have two years to get ready for Germany and we’re going to get that Cup back,” said Wie.

An application cannot be approved unless it contains complete eligibility information as indicated on the application and instructions. Applications from families receiving Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits (formerly the Food Stamp Program) or Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations (FDPIR) need only to list the children’s names, name of the person receiving the program benefits, respective case number, and the signature of an adult household member. Eligibility for free meals is extended to all children in the household when the application lists a case number for any household member. Online applications are available for the 2013-2014 school year. There is no fee to apply online and entering your application online is quicker, easier, and more accurate than filling out a paper application. Please visit to complete the online process. All other households that would qualify based on income must show the names of all household members related or not (such as grandparents, other relatives, or friends), the amount of gross income each person receives in a month, the frequency of pay and source, the signature of an adult household member, and the last four digits of that adult’s Social Security number (or check the box if the adult does not have a Social Security number). The information on the application may be verified by the school or other program officials at any time during the school year. Households with children who are eligible under the homeless, migrant, or runaway programs should contact the school for assistance in receiving benefits. To complete an application, they must mark the relevant box to indicate their appropriate eligibility. Foster children that are under the legal responsibility of a foster care agency or court are eligible for free meals. Any foster child in the household is eligible for free meals regardless of income. If a family has just foster children in the home and wishes to apply for meals, they should complete the application using the instructions for households with foster children only. If a family has foster and non-foster children living with them and wishes to apply for meals, they should complete the application using the instructions for households that have foster and non-foster children residing in the home. Including foster children as household members may help other children in the household qualify for meal benefits. When known to the school district, households will be notified of their children’s eligibility for free meals if they are members of households receiving assistance from SNAP or FDPIR. If the household receives such a notice, no application is required for free meal benefits. If any children in the household were not listed on the eligibility notice, the household should contact Business Services to have benefits extended to that child(ren).

Households notified of their children’s eligibility must contact Business Services if they choose to decline meal benefits.

Let chips fall where they may

Riding in possibly the coolest float in the entire parade, a trio of Western Welcome Week fans beat the heat with popsicles as they make their way along the parade route on Aug. 17 in downtown Littleton.



With horses, tractors, fire engines, marching bands and classic cars, the 85th annual Western Welcome Week Grand Parade made its way through downtown Littleton. With a tip of the hat to the past and a nod to the future, approximately 125 entries moseyed their way down Main Street to crowds stacked three and four deep. As the parade concluded, Main Street opened up for an afternoon of shopping, food and activities.

sellingboe@ourcolorado As lights at Vintage Theatre go up, Usnavi (Alejandro Roldan) is front and center of his little corner of Washington Heights, where we see his bodega, Rosario’s taxi service and Daniela’s beauty shop. An outline of the Brooklyn Bridge is at the rear. He raps about his neighborhood and the folks who live there — and serves sweet, hot café con leche to get the day started. It’s Fourth of July weekend and infectious background music soon has everyone dancing to a happy Latin-pop score. “In the Heights,” in its first local production, was written by Lin-Manuel Miranda as a college project to begin with, with book by Quiara Alegria Hudes. It won a Best Musical Tony in 2008, as well as Best Score and Best Choreography. Director Rebecca Joseph makes her directorial debut in Denver, although she has been stage manager and assistant director in the area. She writes that when rights became available, she began searching for

As the saying goes, “there’s no such thing as bad publicity.” Especially free publicity. Boulder Canyon’s potato chips got a plug on cable TV’s “Breaking Bad” on Aug. 11 when a character in the AMC network series is shown munching on a bag of Boulder Canyon’s sea salt and cracked pepper chips. In Sunday’s mid-season premiere, Hank Schrader (played by actor Dean Morris), a Drug Enforcement Agency agent and brother-in-law of Walter White, the series’ chemistry teacher turned crystal meth maker - is digging into a bag Boulder Canyon’s chips. How did Boulder Canyon take the news that its product was featured on a hit cable series about cancer-stricken high school teacher (played by Bryan Cranston) turned drug kingpin? On its Twitter feed (@BoulderCanyon), the company wrote: “Now we know Hank’s got good taste in his snacks! We wonder what flavor Walt would like...?” and “Eating our chips clearly helps in the investigative process.” Boulder Canyon said it did not pay for product placement on the show. The Boulder Camera first reported the story.

Hideaway fundraiser for Laradon

Alejandro Roldhan plays Usnavi and Marisa Danniele Hebert is Abuela in Vintage Theatre’s production of “In the Heights.” Courtesy photo the first production, made an agreement with artistic director Craig Bond of Vintage and found actors who were as enthusiastic as she was about the piece. Parallel stories involve beloved Abuela Claudia (Marisa Dannielle Hebert), who more or less raised the orphaned Usnavi and good-natured cousin Sonny (Carlos Jimenez) who helps with the bodega. Kevin and Camila, who run the taxi business and their assistant Benny, who raps as he talks

with drivers and falls in love with their daughter Nina, who has been at Stanford. (Since he’s not Latino, he’s not acceptable to the parents — another storyline.) Usnavi is interested in glamorous Vanessa, whose dream is an apartment of her own in a better part of town. Singer Janessa O’Fallon brings a great voice to her theater debut as Vanessa. Weaving through the action and ongoing dancing is tagger Graffiti Pete, a rubber-jointed

Asad Clifton. Choreographer is Matt LaFontaine who has appeared onstage recently as the emcee in “Cabaret” and Berger in “Hair.” The ladies in the hair salon next door — moving out because of high rent — make another colorful vignette with gossip, song and dance. While there are some stressful moments, the general effect is joyous and warm. One loses track of the story on occasion with so much going on, but the production is just so pleasant to watch, that you figure it out later. In the end, Usnavi, who has been contemplating a return to the Dominican Republic with Abuela, proclaims “I’m home!” Midge McMoyer Smith, the keyboard-playing music director was joined by a live band, including the trumpets needed for the salsa and merengue rhythms in this most enjoyable score.

The Hideaway Steakhouse in Westminster is hosting a great fundraising event, “Discover the Hideaway,” from 4:30 to 9 p.m. on Aug. 25.

Pieces of tradition go on display ‘W Quilt show highlights ‘Spirit of the West’ one square at a time By Jennifer Smith

Mu fea

children to kittens, antique cars to fishing, butterflies to giraffes, quilts reflect the personalities and the ages from whence they came. One was made by Lakota Indians as a gift for a bereaved family. Many were made to welcome babies into the world, many to comfort the ailing or tragedy-stricken. One was made as a family tree, another incorporates a growing child’s infant attire. A brandnew one was on display in the church lobby, waiting as a surprise from a new mother-inlaw to be discovered by the happy couple during their wedding rehearsal later that evening. Staritzky says the show and its stories are truly a community event, with pieces on loan from individuals and quilting groups like Firehouse Quilts, which donates its work to comfort local children in crisis, and the church’s own Piecemakers. “We just have a great time, getting a group of ladies together, talking and stitching,” said Blythe Lund. And it’s all for a good cause, as they auction the quilts to benefit various charities, she adds. It’s not just ladies, either. A star of this year’s show was pieced by one very ruggedlooking Jose Archuleta, notes Staritzky. And not all the ladies quilt - Staritzky herself only took one stab at it before deciding she was a better collector. “If someone collects antique door stops,

Perhaps nothing better tells the tale of the “Spirit of the West” better than the Quilt Show at First Presbyterian Church of Littleton, because each artifact has, at some point, embraced a little piece of the whole. Quilts come through the ages as precious family heirlooms, symbols of warmth and comfort, intricate masterpieces of folk art. A bit of material pieced in might call up memories of a mother’s favorite Sunday dress or grandma’s baking apron, family gatherings or traditions. “It’s amazing to me how I can be here for hours and hours and hours and then walk down an aisle and see something that I hadn’t seen before,” said Jenny Staritzky, who started the Western Welcome Week event 11 years ago. It’s grown to fill the church’s beautiful and historic sanctuary to overflowing with dozens of colorful quilts from generations young and old. “Jesus said, `I will not leave you comfortless,” reminds Staritzky, and he certainly would find something to suit anyone in her show.

‘Weather Suspended’ is weather abstracted Museum Outdoor Arts features educational exhibits By Sonya Ellingboe

The Museum Outdoor Arts in Englewood has a new exhibit and a new logo: MOA (the “of” is dropped). The logo was adopted in the hope that patrons will better understand the museum’s mission, which is much more than just outdoor sculptures. “We also offer indoor galleries and studios, as well as arts education programs, film and external collaborations” said a recent press release. Education projects include two 2013 versions of its long-running “Design and Build” program. The first was with students from Regis University, Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design and CU Boulder, who built temporary sculptures utilizing the theme “abstract.” These are on display through Sept. 3 at the McNichols Civic Center Building, 144 W. Colfax Ave., Denver, hosted by Denver Arts and Venues. The second, “Weather Suspended,” opened Aug. 3 at the MOA indoor gallery ’s OKon the second floor of the Englewood Civic e forCenter. It will run through Oct. 19, accompanied by two separate individual exhibits by Sally Stockholder (photographs in the back gallery) and Virginia Maitland (paintings, in the atrium). Twelve interns from across the country spent eight weeks in the spacious MOA studios, developing interpretations focused on the themes of “abstracted” and “weather.” Lead artist was the versatile Cory Gilstrap of Denver, who worked with interns to develop seven joint installations and 12 individual 2-foot by 8-foot panels that each

Joint projects include: • Cloud Walk,” a large cluster of white Tryvek strips, suspended from the ceiling and reaching the floor, shimmering with every bit of breeze.

These were the titles for the individual panels, which fill a wall. The visitor is invited to guess the title, then lift a flap to check for correctness:

• In the White Gallery, one finds “Tornado,” made with whirling suspended foam forms and video projections on the walls. • Projected on a wall in the main gallery is “Word Cloud” and next to a window, “Topiary” is a globe surrounded by a ring of growing, flourishing philodendron, which must be watered weekly. • “Wind Shadow” is the final joint project designed by the 12 interns under Gilstrap’s guidance. In the rear Sound Gallery a visitor finds a short film showing the interns at work as they “Designed and Built” the components of this really interesting exhibit — one that families, as well as artists, will enjoy.

Cabela’s grand opening draws about 5,000 Hunters, campers and curious gather to formally open Lone Tree store By Jane Reuter Parker resident Joe Folmar and Elizabeth’s Chris Alward suffered through a cold, windy Wednesday night in the Lone Tree Cabela’s parking lot. Thursday morning, that earned them spots near the front of a line a few-thousand-people in length. “We slept in our lawn chairs, tucked into a little ball,” Folmar said. “It was probably about 50 degrees with 30 mph winds. I think it’s worth it. Now, it’s just what kinda goodies are we going to get?” Cabela’s gave gift cards in varying amounts — one for $500 — to the first 500 people in line for the Lone Tree store’s Aug. 15 grand opening. Campers started showing up at the store Aug. 13, store officials said. By the time the doors opened at 11 a.m., they estimated 5,000 people were waiting in a line that stretched all the way around the 110,000-square-foot building. Another 5,000 more gathered several miles north at the Thornton store, which opened simultaneously. Lone Tree’s store, at 110,000 square feet, is slightly larger than Thornton’s, and even surpasses the 85,000-square-foot Sydney, Neb., store in size. Most in line said they were longtime Cabela’s customers, many of whom previously had made the long journey to the Sydney store. Cabela’s is headquartered in Sydney. Some were hunters, some campers and some just curious. “I think we mainly came because it’s fun to people watch,” said Golden resident Kerry Bostwick. “This is really fun. Everyone is so laid back.” “I’m excited to look at the clothing and shoes and not have to guess at the size,” said Littleton’s Randy Alldridge, who in the past was a Cabela’s catalog shopper. Rock music blasted across the parking

lot, and cart-pushing Cabela’s employees doled out water bottles and doughnuts to the waiting customers. While tour buses deposited customers at the back of the store and the overflow parking lot at Havana Street and RidgeGate Parkway threatened to overflow, store employees rallied inside. Football in hand, Cabela’s regional retail manager Diane Uhlenkamp revved up the more than 200 staff members and corporate visitors crowded inside the store’s massive main hall. “It’s Super Bowl time,” she said. “It’s gonna be big from here on out. Take great care of those folks out there because that’s what we’re here for.” “This has been (founder) Dick Cabela’s dream — to have a store in Denver,” Cabela’s COO Michael Copeland said, adding the opening of two stores simultaneously exceeded that vision. “We’ve already set some records this week. I don’t know what they put in the water in Denver.” Copeland led employees in a cheer, asking, “Who are we?” “Lone Tree, Lone Tree, Mile High Great,” the staff roared in return. Moments before the doors opened, store, county and city officials addressed the huge crowd, most of whom were so far from the doors, they couldn’t hear the speeches. Cabela’s is “a perfect complement to the world-class retail we have down here,” said Lone Tree Mayor Jim Gunning, urging the crowd to remember the day was a celebration of Cabela’s. “So when you walk in, don’t be stingy.” County Commissioner Jack Hilbert took Gunning’s advice to heart. An avid outdoorsman, Hilbert said he spent about $1,000 during a preview event at the store and another $100 on opening day. “This is fantastic,” he said. “You don’t see a grand opening in Douglas County like this.” “Awesome,” County Commissioner Jill Repella agreed. “I’m extremely proud. The site exceeded my expectations, the store exceeded my expectations, the grand opening exceeded my expectations.”
