Board denies bid for charter
By Tom Munds
email@example.com The Oct. 16 midweek homecoming activities turned the normally dark and quiet Englewood High School Stadium into a beehive of activities. All the events were part of the Pirates homecoming schedule that continued with the parade the afternoon of Oct. 18, followed by the football game against Weld Central that evening. Homecoming week concluded with the dance on Oct. 19. Activities kicked off as the Oct. 16 sun went down, with a chance to batter an old car to show determination to defeat Weld Central in football. The sledgehammer slammed repeatedly into the vehicle as Pirates sought to reduce the car into a pile of battered metal. The scene shifted to the gridiron about 6:30 p.m. for the annual powder puff football game. In keeping with tradition, the flag football game matches a team of junior and senior girls against a team of freshman and sophomore girls. Since the girls were playing football, it seemed only right that guys don the proper attire and be the cheerleaders. “It’s fun to do this,” said Andrew Montoya, one of the cheerleaders. “It’s all about school spirit and having fun. It’s chilly in this short
Many teachers around the country express the desire to have more time with students and more professional development. Englewood is collaborating with Generation Schools to make that happen. “We know we have a lot of kids who are behind and we know teachers don’t have enough time to help get those kids caught up. We also know there isn’t really enough time in the school year for teacher development,” said Brian Ewert, school superintendent. “We heard about the work Generation Schools is doing in those areas, looked into it and are developing a contract to have them work with our district.” Generation Schools Network was founded in 2004 on the East Coast and came to Colorado about four years ago, establishing a key office in Denver. It is a nonprofit organization that states it is dedicated to the whole school and systematic innovation to try to solve

The Oct. 16 game belonged to the upperclassmen. Elijah Daughtry took the opening kickoff for the juniors and seniors and raced about 70 yards for a touchdown. The upperclassmen set the tempo of play as the piled up points, eventually winning the game, 74-0. Maddie Smith, a member of the winning

team, smiled as she came off the field. “This is the highlight of my year and the most fun I have all year,” she said. “There is so much rivalry between the members of the teams and then you get to come out here on the field to back up the talk. It was a whole lot of fun tonight because we were able to score so many points.” Tori Harper played for the underclassmen and she said it was sort of fun, but she felt her team had things planned and could have done better if the guys hadn’t tried to coach them and change everything. There were hugs and handshakes when the game was over and the focus shifted to the pep rally. The marching band was in the stands and students filled the seats to the west. There was singing and cheering before everyone filed out of the stands and did a snake dance around the track and moved out behind the stadium for the annual bonfire that wrapped up the evening’s activities at the stadium. However, another traditional activity was going on as EHS cheerleaders traveled to the homes of the Pirates football players and festooned the lawns and trees with toilet paper.
The Englewood School Board unanimously voted to deny the application to establish a charter school in the district. The vote came during a special Oct. 22 meeting in the boardroom at the school administration building. The only agenda item for the meeting was consideration of the charter school application. Brad Miller, an attorney, was the only person to address the board. He urged the board to approve the charter application. The 28 people in the audience listened as the board members discussed the draft resolutions and voted 4-0 to deny the charter school application. Mary Zachariah, Lloyd Carlton Academy charter school founding board president, said after the meeting that the academy supporters were disappointed by the school board’s decision. “We are disappointed, but I think we expected to have the application turned down,” Theresa Martens, board vice president, added. “The reasons they gave for turning down the application are flawed. But we are not going away. If we decide not to appeal tonight’s decision, Charter continues on Page 23

Homecoming royalty crowned Names revealed at halftime during homecoming game By Tom Munds
firstname.lastname@example.org The suspense ended during halftime of the Oct. 18 football game, when Tyler Harris and Kyrie Schroeder were named Englewood High School’s 2013 king and queen. Englewood’s marching band did a short performance at halftime before setting up to assist in the homecoming ceremonies. Students who were homecoming royalty lined up. Members of the band’s color guard created a walkway lined with their flags and, as royalty names were announced, they came down the flag-lined walkway to the presentation area.
There were royalty representatives from each of the four classes. This year’s class representatives included: Freshmen: Sydney Gonzales, Joe Hall, Karin Bader and Jacob Snyder. Sophomores: Tori Harris, Jon Schroeder, Jacob Wyatt and Reagin Kirklin. Juniors: Dante Perez, Dominque Daughtry, Josie Phillips and Justin Willson. Seniors: Kyrie Schroeder — Queen, Tyler Harris — King, Nate Medina and Lyndsey McNorton. In keeping with tradition, the name of the king and queen remained secret until announced as the finale of the coronation ceremony. Jonathan Fore, Englewood High School principal, did the honors, presenting the king the crown and the queen the tiara. The queen also got roses and a Pirates football helmet signed by all members of the team.
Roundups planned for leaves, old tires Three dates available at site in Sheridan By Tom Munds
email@example.com The Keep Englewood Beautiful Committee is sponsoring an event on three separate dates for recycling leaves and old tires. Committee volunteers will staff each of the three events from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. on Oct. 27, Nov. 3 and Nov. 10 at Mountain States Wood Recyclers, 2300 W. Radcliff Ave. in Sheridan Englewood and Littleton residents can bring leaves and old tires to the event. Residents must have identification and the
roundup will not accept items from commercial firms. There is no charge for leaves but only leaves will be accepted. Grass clippings or other yard debris will not be accepted. Those dropping off leaves are asked to leave the bags open so they can more easily be dumped. The bags can be returned at the owner’s request. There is a fee to recycle tires. It will cost $2 to drop off a tire that is not mounted, and the fee is $5 for each tire mounted on a rim. There are additional fees for oversized tires, and the program will not accept tractor or monster tires. For more information, go to the website at www.englewoodgov.org/KEB or call 303762-2345.

Amendment 66 is no easy sell Tax hike for schools generates opposition
vamped school finance formula that would give more money to districts with higher proportions of at-risk and non-English speaking students, as well as increased funding for preschool and kindergarten students. It’s a more complex proposal than those in the past — including a 2011 effort that would have temporarily raised sales and income taxes for education, but lost with only 36 percent of the vote. “That was a temporary fix, and it didn’t have widespread initial support,” said Curtis Hubbard of the 2011 effort. Hubbard is a spokesman for Colorado Commits to Kids, the pro-Amendment 66 group that raised more than $7.7 million through Oct. 9.
By Sandra Fish
I-News at Rocky Mountain PBS Teachers unions and several wealthy Coloradans are spending millions to convince voters to agree to almost $1 billion annually in higher income taxes devoted to public schools. But they face an uphill battle with an electorate that rarely agrees to increase taxes. And opponents of the measure say they’d like to spend at least $1 million in the fight, though the sources of that money likely won’t be revealed. Amendment 66 would raise the state income tax rate from 4.63 percent to 5 percent on the first $75,000 of taxable income and to 5.9 percent on taxable income beyond $75,000. It would be the first tiered income tax since a single tax rate was adopted in 1988. I-News Network at Rocky Mountain PBS and Maplight are teaming up on VotersEdge.org/ Colorado, a website offering details about the proposal’s pros and cons, its funding and daily updates on news stories. The site also offers information on Proposition AA, which would place taxes on retail marijuana sales statewide. Amendment 66 would raise about $950 million a year in the first year and about $1 billion after that. And it would require that 43 percent of the state’s general fund go to pre-K-12 public schools. The initiative would fund a re-
Some have doubts
Despite promises that money will go to classrooms as specified by the Legislature’s Senate Bill 213, which revises the school finance formula but will not take effect if Amendment 66 doesn’t pass, not everyone is convinced. Norma Anderson was in the state Legislature for 19 years, serving as both House and Senate majority leader. She was a key author of the 1994 school finance act, which would be replaced by Amendment 66, and she is still active in education efforts. A Republican, Anderson is one of the leaders of Coloradans for Real Education Reform, a primary opponent of the tax hike. “My concern on this, it’s a budget nightmare, and you’re tying up the general fund in the Constitution,” she said. “It’s too much money, and I’m not sure it’s going to the right places.” Hubbard counters that the bill
changing the funding formula requires annual audits of spending, a website to allow the public to compare how money is spent and a return-on-investment study every four years. Backed by Gov. John Hickenlooper, at least 25 school districts and several local chambers of commerce, Colorado Commits to Kids spent more than $1.4 million to collect signatures to put the issue on the ballot, and is now spending on television advertisements, fliers and other strategies to support the initiative. That compares with $7,605 for Kids Before Unions and $14,500 for Coloradans for Real Education Reform. The Independence Institute, a libertarian Denver think tank, donated $10,800 to the latter group. An Independence Institute program, Kids Are First, is running television ads against Amendment 66. As a nonprofit, the organization doesn’t have to file disclosures with the Colorado Secretary of State. The Kids Are First donation page says it has raised $668,025 of a $1 million goal. “I’d love to spend $1 million,” said Jon Caldara, president of the Independence Institute, though he said some of the advertising is coming from the think tank’s general budget. “As a (nonprofit) organization, we don’t report to the secretary of state.”
Backers of Amendment 66 are disclosing their donors, though, revealing some of Colorado’s deep pockets in campaign finance. The bulk of that money comes from large donors. Among them: The National Education Asso-
ciation gave $2 million through Oct. 9. The Colorado Education Association gave $2 million. Pat Stryker, the medical technology heiress from Fort Collins, gave $825,000. The Gary Community Investment Co., operated by Sam Gary, founder of the Piton Foundation, gave $700,000. Education Reform Now, a national nonprofit, and Ben Walton, a Walmart heir, each gave $500,000. Other six-figure donors include David Merage, $254,314; Rose Community Foundation, $200,000; Stand for Children, $103,409; and Kaiser Permanente Financial Services Operations and Davita Total Renal Care at $100,000 each. Since voters approved the Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights in 1992, they also must ratify any state or local tax increase, even if it’s to retain tax money that exceeds the TABOR financial formula. Of 16 funding proposals since 1993, voters have approved only five. One of those, Amendment 23 in 2000, didn’t increase taxes or fees — it simply required lawmakers to increase spending on K-12 schools. Two years ago, voters defeated an effort to raise income and sales taxes for five years to fund education. Supporters hope that emphasizing benefits for individual school districts will sway voters this time around. On Oct. 12, supporters of Amendment 66 organized to campaign for the measure in 15 communities, including Greeley, Pueblo, Colorado Springs, Grand Junction, Durango, Steamboat Springs and

others. Carol Hedges, executive director of the Colorado Fiscal Institute, is optimistic about the 2013 proposal. “I think Amendment 66 is the best opportunity we’ve had to actually pass a measure that will provide additional funding for school reform,” she said. “The recession really underscored for people how important education is to economic opportunity.”

police report Crash snarls traffic
A crash involving a tractortrailer and about a dozen vehicles created a massive traffic jam on U.S. Highway 285 near the intersection with South Clarkson Street. Andy Marsh, Englewood fire chief, said the accident happened about 3:30 p.m. Oct. 21 when the westbound semi crashed into vehicles, crossed into the eastbound lane and stopped just feet short of an apartment complex. “All our available personnel and equipment were on scene. The good news is no one was seriously injured, but I believe four people were taken to the hospital to be checked out,” Marsh said. “However, there are power lines down and it will take time to clean up the accident scene.” The crash was in Cherry Hills’ jurisdiction, but firefighters from Englewood, Littleton and South Metro responded to the scene. Police closed the eastbound lanes of 285 at Logan Street and the westbound lanes at Downing Street. They also temporarily evacuated residents from apartment buildings at 680 and 710 E. Jefferson Ave. The evacuation was eventually lifted. A crane had to be brought in to
remove the semi and, when that was completed, the lanes of 285 in both directions were reopened about 9:30 p.m. Cherry Hills continues the investigation, and there have been indications the semi driver possibly suffered a seizure.
Warrant arrest made
An Englewood police investigation of a report of a suspicious vehicle resulted in the arrest of a 25-year-old woman on five active warrants. The report of a suspicious vehicle at West Bates Avenue and South Elati Street was received about 3 a.m. Oct. 21. Police found two women in the vehicle. Officers checked on the driver and received the report that she had five active warrants issued for her arrest. She was taken into custody and, when she was searched, officers found she also had heroin in her possession. The driver was arrested and taken to the Arapahoe County jail on the active warrants. Officers also checked the passenger, a 26-year-old woman, and found she had drug paraphernalia in her possession. She was issued a municipal summons and released.
C-470 expansion ready to ‘RAMP’ up CDOT funds to cover half the cost of construction By Ryan Boldrey
email@example.com The first phase of the C-470 expansion project shifted into high gear this past week following the awarding of $100 million in RAMP funding on behalf of the Colorado Department of Transportation. The expansion project, which will add a managed toll express lane in each direction between Interstate 25 and Kipling Parkway, is the recipient of the largest amount of money among 44 statewide projects to receive Responsible Acceleration of Maintenance and Partnerships funds from CDOT this year. The funds, which were requested by Douglas County, will account for half the cost of the now-scaled-back project that is currently in the design phase. According to the county’s capital improvements projects manager, Art Griffith, the rest of the money will be funded by a combination of local, state and federal loans that will be paid back with toll revenue over the next 30 years. “They (CDOT) have a fairly aggressive schedule and would like to see all these projects completed and open to traffic by January 2018,”
Griffith said. For the C-470 expansion project, he said, it is likely to be in the design phase for much of 2014 and construction will start in 2015. The project, in addition to new lanes, will include the addition of a continuous auxiliary lane from Santa Fe Drive to University Boulevard and also involve the replacement of some existing infrastructure. “The ultimate plan was to add two managed lanes in each direction from Wadsworth to I-25, and one managed lane in each direction from Wadsworth to Kipling, but this RAMP project will require us to scale back and do an interim solution,” Griffith said. “The interim solution is adding one lane in each direction from I-25 to the Platte Canyon exit. There’s just not enough money to do the whole kit and caboodle right now. The ultimate plan is still to get managed lanes all the way to Kipling.” The C-470 Corridor coalition — made up of representatives from a variety of adjacent municipalities — spent two years studying how to finance the new lanes, finally reaching a decision in February that managed toll express lanes would be the way to go. Other options discussed included the implementation of sales or property tax increases within a to-bedetermined taxing district as well as tolling all the lanes.
Doctors’ Discovery Helps Diabetics PHILADELPHIA — A team of doctors has found that a new formulation of exotic sounding herbs and spices gives new hope to diabetics. The formula, called Cinnatrol™ promotes healthy blood sugar levels by effectively metabolizing glucose into energy. In a research study, all patients taking just one capful of the liquid (one ounce) daily, dramatically lowered their blood sugar levels compared to a placebo group. Another scientific study found that an ingredient in Cinnatrol made insulin 20 times more capable converting blood sugar to energy.
While individual results vary, one patient in the study lowered his blood sugar from 220-245 to the 100-130 range in only 28 days, despite being instructed not to change his dietary habits or physical activity. Some patients, under their doctors care, have been able to reduce or eliminate their need for diabetic drugs. Scientists say that Cinnatrol actually helps diabetic drugs to work more efficiently. Additional information is available at www.cinnatrol.com. Cinnatrol is available without a prescription at pharmacies and nutrition stores or call 1-877-5811502.

The board will interview finalists at 6 p.m. Oct. 29 in the boardroom at the school administration building, 4100 S. Bannock St. The board declared the vacancy on Sept. 17, which started the
board members urged those who weren’t selected as finalists to remain active and involved in the schools and the school district. At the Oct. 29 meeting, tentative plans call for the board to discuss the issue in public session and possibly make the appointment that night. The appointee will serve a two-year term. If the individual wants to remain on the board, he or she will be required to seek election for a two-year term. During the Nov. 6 board meeting, the appointee and new board members Tena Prange and Jason Sakry will be sworn in. That night, Scott Gorsky, board president, and Tom O’Connor will complete their terms on the board.

Construction to begin soon at Flood site Wood Partners to build apartment complex By Tom Munds
firstname.lastname@example.org The land has changed hands, but the new developer announced that the original plans to build an apartment complex on the 4.6-acre property that once included Flood Middle School remain basically unchanged. The new owners, Wood Partners, announced in a press release that, weather permitting, work will begin in the near future on the 280,000-square-foot Alta Cherry Hills project. Wood Partners confirms that the con-
struction of two five-story buildings, one where the former middle school stood and a second on the lot across Lincoln Street, with parking for tenants inside both buildings. The two buildings are to contain 306 apartment units along with amenities such as a rooftop deck, dog wash, bike and ski shop and state-of-the-art clubhouse and fitness center. Wood Partners regional director Tim McEntee said in the press release from the company’s Greenwood Village office that the firm is excited to bring the promising project to Englewood. The press release also stated the complex will be built to meet the U.S. Green Building Council’s energy and environmental design standards. There are to be 191 one-bedroom,
103 two-bedroom and 12 three-bedroom apartments in the complex. The apartments are scheduled to include granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and sophisticated technology packages with leasing scheduled to begin in the summer of 2014. Flood opened in 1920 as the district’s middle school and high school. High school students moved a few blocks to Englewood High School when it opened in the 1950s. Flood then was one of the district’s two middle schools. Declining enrollment triggered the 2007 school board decision to close Flood and move all middle school students to Sinclair, which was renamed Englewood Middle School. The board also sought a buyer for the Flood site. A couple years ago, Edward Bar-
socchi negotiated the purchase of the land for Bradbury Holding, which became Solidcore Partners. Solidcore oversaw the demolition of the building and clearing of the site before selling the land to Wood Partners. The land purchase was finalized on Sept. 26. David Jaudes, development associate in the Wood Partners Greenwood Village office, said there will be few changes in the plans presented for the site during the process to rezone the location as a planned unit development. “The planned unit development details are very specific about what can be built as part of this project,” he said. “As new owners, we have been working with the city and it has gone very well, so work should begin soon.”

opinions / yours and ours
Puzzlement is a many-splendored thing There are one or two things I don’t understand. One or two thousand. Tops on my list is why a baseball manger wears a wristwatch in the dugout. Baseball is one of the few sports that isn’t timed. Golf is another one — but you only have so much time to hit your shot. There are clocks all over baseball stadiums. So why would you wear a wristwatch? It must be vanity, or superstition. I don’t have a single superstition. I wish I did. I embrace the number 13. I met my beloved on the 13th. There’s another thing I don’t understand. It’s something that is going on right now. The James Holmes trial may last eight months. It should last eight minutes. “For the first time, lawyers for James
Holmes have admitted he killed 12 people and wounded dozens more at an Aurora movie theater last summer,” the Denver Post reported. I don’t understand why they put headlight decals on NASCAR cars. I don’t know why anyone would go to a fashion show.
I don’t understand why athletes point to the sky after they get a hit. I don’t understand Pop Tarts or those scented, pine tree-shaped things you hang from your rearview mirror. How bad does it have to smell in your car before you hang a cardboard pine tree from the rearview mirror of a $20,000 car? I don’t understand why anyone would book a flight, fly to Las Vegas, rent a car, stay in a hotel, and spend a lot of money on a ticket to watch a ventriloquist. I don’t know why evangelists dye their hair, or why they always have a Cheshire cat smile — maybe because they are richer than anyone in the audience? I don’t understand why women scream their brains out when Ellen is introduced. I don’t know why anyone would boo

question of the week
What was your favorite costume? With Halloween nearing, Colorado Community Media asked people on Main Street in Littleton what Halloween costume they’ve worn that has been their favorite.
“I was once a man in boxers. It was a little bit of a cheat.” — Michael Lyons, Lakewood
“My mom made me a Dorothy outfit, and she got me the little red shoes.” — Olivia Votaw, Littleton
“I was a Renaissance lady at a Hollywood festival in Los Angles.” — Robin Kanouse, Westminster
“An Army guy. That’s my costume this year. It’s camouflage, and it has a hard helmet. It makes me feel kind of important.” — Van Leonard, Bailey
How our values drive our lifetime success One of my very favorite things about being in the coaching, training, and learning and development industry is when I have an opportunity to meet and observe other trainers or facilitators, authors, and subject matter experts. I am sharing this with you because I had a wonderful opportunity to sit in on a session recently conducted by Peter Thomas. His career and accomplishments were extremely impressive, however his presentation was focused on values, and it was his passion and conviction around this topic that really captured my attention. Although Peter Thomas normally delivers the course over two days, the four-hour abbreviated version had a tremendous impact on me and how I see and define my own success. What are my values? What do I value most? Why do I value these things? Intuitively I have understood the importance of identifying my values and their relation to my success and have spent time identifying them in the past and even committing them to writing. Yet during this recent session with Peter Thomas I questioned and even challenged myself a little on how much emphasis I was placing on my own values and was I really living those values. Typically when I teach a class or coach a client and we discuss values I hear words like honesty, integrity, family, knowledge, and other very nice words and strong values. So when I was tasked with working through my own, I came up with about 14 words or values. Then after thinking through them a little more I distilled the list down to seven values and found the other words and values fit better as sub-values or categories. If you don’t mind me sharing, here is what I do value: Faith, Family, Love, Trust, Kindness, Happiness, and Fitness. And the other values that fall somewhere under each one include: Togetherness, Compassion, Time, Quiet Time, Loyalty, Effort, Purpose, Commitment, Wisdom, and Peace,
when an opposing pitcher throws to first, to hold the runner. It demonstrates an ignorance of the game. I don’t know why anyone has a closet full of shoes. I don’t understand why dry cleaning is called dry cleaning. It’s not. Surprise parties. The worst. “An act of aggression,” David Mamet said. I’d walk out, but fortunately no one has a surprise party for a humbug. I don’t understand why anyone would give their children names that begin with the same letter. They should be fined.
with some of these falling under more than one major value. Have you considered what it is you really value and why? Success is different for everyone as some define success by status, money, achievements, and in many other ways. What if we looked at success and measured our success in relation to our values instead of our accomplishments or at least alongside of them? If we compromise our values to achieve status or things, are we truly successful? I know this sounds so philosophical or maybe you see it as wishful thinking. But if you are a little like me maybe, and someone reminded you about the importance of your values, would you take the time to reconsider what they are and how you not only prioritize them but how you just might live them? This was an awesome reminder and I am so grateful to Peter Thomas for his presentation. He has written a book titled “Be Great: The Five Foundations of an Extraordinary Life in Business - And Beyond” and I would highly encourage you to read this wonderfully fresh reminder of all that may just be important in your own life. Are your values in alignment with what you do? Is what you do in alignment with your values? I would love to hear all about it at firstname.lastname@example.org because when our values and life are in sync, it really will be a better than good week.

mayor backs Olson, gorsky
I am writing this letter to you to express my support for Linda Olson and Scott Gorsky for City Council positions. It is my opinion that these two are the best candidates to fill the council seats because of their dedication, knowledge of Englewood and their ability to disseminate facts to make the right decisions for the City of Englewood. Both Linda and Scott have served in positions either as council or school board members, which gives them a background which helps to make best practice decisions for Englewood. They are both very well versed in budgetary issues, growth needs of the city and are both readily available to the citizens of Englewood. These candidates have a track record of vested interest in Englewood becoming the best that it can be. They are willing to invest time into council issues and are both willing to stand on their beliefs, even if it is not the most popular decision. Their decisions will be made because of the research they are willing to put into the issue. They reach out to the community to listen and discuss the issues at hand, and have a vision of how their decisions will benefit Englewood in the future. I urge you to vote for both Linda Olson and Scott Gorsky in the upcoming election to keep the city moving forward, continue to make Englewood a city that citizens are proud of, and ensure that Englewood continues to be the best city to live, work, and enjoy. I will also support Initiative 300 on the dedication of park lands. I along with council members am in full support and believe this will end any speculation of which property is dedicated and are truly parks. This initiative will continue to keep all park land for the future and will not allow any sale of park land without a vote

Vote no on marijuana tax
This election, Colorado voters will consider Proposition AA, a 15 percent sales tax plus a 15 percent excise tax on marijuana sales. Colorado has never taxed a particular industry or product at this high of a rate. These taxes would be in addition to the federal, state, and local taxes already in place on marijuana. Proposition AA would be the highest tax increase in Colorado history, a reckless experiment that would create a dysfunctional market for marijuana, undermining the goal of the “Alcohol-Marijuana Equalization Initiative” (Amendment 64). As a framer and supporter of Amendment 64, the purpose of the measure was to bring marijuana out of Prohibition and regulate it like alcohol. Colorado’s alcohol industry pays less than 1 percent in state excise taxes. Prohibition does not work. Excessive taxes are another form of Prohibition. The pro-tax campaign is supported by what Jacob Sullum of Reason magazine has accurately labeled “The Marijuana Cartel,” i.e. large dispensaries and drug dealers that use burdensome and expensive government regulation and taxation to suppress fair competition from smaller businesses. Proposition AA would re-establish Prohibition and drive marijuana back underground, to the detriment of all Coloradans. Please vote “No” on Proposition AA. Robert J. Corry Jr. Treasurer and attorney, “No on Proposition AA” campaign Denver

Steak ’n Shakes to reopen next month Popular restaurants to be operated by corporate office By George Lurie
firstname.lastname@example.org It’s lunchtime and a steady stream of vehicles cruises slowly past Centennial’s shuttered Steak ’n Shake. “Do you know when they’re going to open back up?” one driver asks. “I can’t wait to get my hands on a Steakburger,” another man says while stopping to read signs posted in the restaurant’s front window. Clearly, Steak ’n Shake is a restaurant with a strong local following. But since September, Steakburger devotees have had to drive to Colorado Springs to get their itch scratched. That’s because a dispute between the local franchisee and the company’s corporate office led to the closure in September of Steak ’n Shakes in Centennial and Sheridan. But last week, the company announced its Centennial and Sheridan restaurants will reopen in late November. “The company is designing a marvelous grand reopening,” said Melissa Hirner, a public relations specialist working for the company who confirmed “Steak ’n Shake corporate” will directly manage the Centennial and Sheridan restaurants. “Steak ’n Shake’s goal is to serve highquality food at the same great value throughout the country,” Hirner said. The Steak ’n Shakes in Centennial and Sheridan have been in the headlines recently, shuttered the past two months and now tangled in lawsuits after the franchise owner ignored a corporate directive and charged higher prices for certain menu items. The two metro-area Steak ’n Shake franchises are owned by Kathryn and Larry
Steak ‘n Shake is hiring about two dozen workers to staff its Centennial restaurant, scheduled to reopen in late November. Photo by George Lurie Baerns and their son Christopher. The Baernses opened Colorado’s first Steak ’n Shake in Centennial in 2011, investing a reported $4 million to secure a 20-year lease as well as the option to open as many as a dozen Denver-area franchises. But in September of this year, a judge ordered them to stop operating under the Steak ’n Shake banner. The reason: the ongoing disagreement over pricing. At one point, the dispute prompted Steak ’n Shake’s corporate office to cut off the computerized cash register system necessary to operate the Baernses’ franchises.

This summer, a Denver judge stepped into the fray and granted the Baernses a temporary restraining order, forcing the company’s corporate office to bring the Centennial and Sheridan restaurants back online. But after the restraining order expired in early September, the corporate office once again withdrew its technical support and the Baerns family was forced to close their restaurants again. Last month, U.S. District Judge Raymond Moore ruled the Baernses could still operate restaurants in their two leased lo-
cations but the stores could no longer appear to be associated in any way with Steak ’n Shake. While the two parties remain embroiled in court proceedings, Steak ’n Shake’s franchisee agreements reportedly allow the company to assume franchise leases in certain situations. Although the Baernses’ lawyer did not respond to interview requests, in earlier media coverage of the dispute, the Baernses claimed to be losing money because of additional labor and supply costs the corporate office failed to disclose during initial contract negotiations. Steak ’n Shake officials have yet to comment on the lawsuits involving the Baerns family. Hirner said this week that the company senior vice president of marketing, Jim Flaniken, was “currently traveling internationally and is unable to comment.” But in a media release issued last week, Flaniken stated: “We are delighted to bring an authentic Steak ’n Shake experience to the Centennial and Sheridan locations (and) are committed to providing a consistent experience across the country. No matter where Steak ’n Shake fans enjoy their meals, they can be assured they are receiving the highest quality Steakburgers and milkshakes.” The Centennial and Sheridan restaurants, which are located at 8271 S. Quebec Street in Centennial and 3502 River Point Parkway in Sheridan, will operate 24 hours a day after reopening. The company is in the process of hiring as many as 140 new employees at both metro-area locations, and former employees can apply. Steak ’n Shake, owned by Indianapolisbased Bilgari Holdings, was founded in 1934. The company operates more than 500 restaurants, many located in the Midwest and South.

Murray respected by peers in Legislature Retiring lawmaker seen as practical, hard-working By Virginia Grantier
firstname.lastname@example.org Colorado Speaker of the House Mark Ferrandino says he “disagrees on most things” with state Rep. Carole Murray, RCastle Rock, who recently announced she won’t run for a fourth term. But he might even disagree with her retirement decision. Ferrandino said despite their differences, “I’ve worked on a lot of issues with her. “She can talk to both sides of the aisle,” he said. “We’re seeing less and less of that.” Murray said recently she has watched her husband, a former high school principal, get into a “retirement frame of mind,” and is following his lead. “I’ve been a working woman for 50 years … I don’t want to live by the alarm anymore.” Ferrandino said while Murray is very conservative, she knows how to craft a deal and work across the aisle. “She has a lot of respect for the process,” said Ferrandino, who is concerned that her successor might be more of an ideologue than a “consensus, practical” type of legislator. “She’s a very well-respected legislator that you can work with even if you disagree. She works hard. She knows her information. She’ll fight for what she believes.” Sometimes she has managed to shock both sides of the aisle. Murray — a former teacher possibly best known for her work on education reform who was named 2010 “Legislator of the Year” by the Colorado Community College System — made national news when she, a self-described “extremely conservative” Republican, voted earlier this year to support Colorado’s civil unions bill. “It took significant political courage — you don’t see much political courage on both sides of the aisle — to get up and do what she thinks was (right),” said Ferran-
State Rep. Carole Murray, representing District 45, recently announced she won’t run for a fourth two-year term. Courtesy photo dino, who said he was shocked at her vote. Colorado Sen. Mark Scheffel R-Parker said he didn’t agree with her position, but after talking with her, he “respected her thought process” on how she came to that decision. “I’m a Carole fan,” he said. “It was an honor to serve with her.” Murray told the News-Press she was proudest of her 2011 role in outlawing artificial cannabanoids, the use and sale of the designer drug known as “Spice.” “(The bill) almost died at the end of the session a couple of years ago and I was able to resurrect it.” She said she was also prime sponsor of HB 11-1293, which repealed a tax on downloadable software passed by the Democrats
the previous year. “Very proud of that one, as the tax had the potential of negatively affecting every business in the state, since it was a tax on any program that was downloaded from the Internet,” she said. Murray was also the House co-sponsor of a bill passed in 2010, SB 191, which requires that teachers be evaluated on student performance. Rep. Frank McNulty R-Highlands recalled her ability to work with opponents, on education and other issues. “She could dismantle labor leaders’ contentions on education and then she could still go back and work with the chief advocates for status quo.” “Carole could throw a grenade over the wall and then walk through the gate and
check on the wounded,” he said. She said she’s not sure who’s going to run for her seat. “I’m going to stay out of that one … With my position on civil unions I don’t know if they’ll want my support or not.” Murray said her decision came down to “everyone needs to have equal responsibility and equal benefits in our society.” She said she didn’t think it was government’s role to make a judgment. Murray, who is opposed to gay marriage, as marriage is a “religious construct,” said one thing that fueled her decision was that even though gay people have been adopting children for many years, there was nothing in the law that gave partners any certainty if something had happened to one of them. She said there had been cases when the remaining parent had to struggle to continue being the child’s parent. “I’ve no regrets,” she said, about that position. But she regrets she won’t be around to complete what she started in trying to update telecommunication laws that haven’t been updated in 25 years, and make sure the Internet isn’t regulated. “We don’t want to pile regulation on Internet communication because it will stifle innovation,” she said. Murray taught junior high for a couple years, and then in Douglas County was a stay-at-home mom, then an advertising manager for the Douglas County NewsPress, then later Castle Rock Chamber of Commerce’s executive director before running for Douglas County clerk and recorder, serving for eight years before running for the District 45 seat in 2008. Scheffel, who grew up in Parker, has known Murray since before she was clerk and recorder, and she was involved in countless projects for the party and community. “She refers to herself as a `change agent,’” he said. “That’s true.” Now, for another change. She wants to travel with her husband, visit grandchildren, and garden.
St. Luke’s teens help after flood in Boulder Group does mission work at sister church By Ryan Boldrey
email@example.com Scott Pelletier, director of youth ministry at Boulder’s Mountain View United Methodist Church, has been leading mission trips all over the world for more than 20 years. He never thought he would see the day when he would be on the receiving end of such work, though. But after his church flooded a month ago, the calls for help started pouring in, and crews from Kansas, Missouri and Highlands Ranch have already made their way to Boulder to do whatever they can to help get things back to normal. “It’s quite remarkable to be wearing the other pair of shoes,” Pelletier said. “I’m just so grateful. It’s been absolutely amazing. The amount of work that has to be done is just so overwhelming. These groups have all truly been Godsends.” The lower level of the church was completely flooded due to an overflowing sewer, and the ground floor found itself in similar shape after the heavy rains were too much for the windows to sustain, causing numerous offices and Sunday-school rooms to flood. Pelletier expects it will be at least four months before things return to normal. And while many Douglas County School District students headed out of town over fall break, a total of 32 students, parents and church members from St. Luke’s United Methodist in Highlands Ranch instead made their way to Boulder to help clean and paint the offices and Sunday-school rooms and prep the basement for tile work. “A lot of the water level was so high that it messed up all of the electrical
Members of the St. Luke’s United Methodist youth group from Highlands Ranch spent part of their fall break this past week helping with flood repairs at the Mountain View United Methodist Church in Boulder. Courtesy photo work and a lot of the plumbing,” said Dave Laurvick, director of youth and young adult ministries at St. Luke’s. “Their youth group had also just been gifted a pool table, an air hockey table and a pingpong table and all that was ruined. But that was nothing compared to the 20-plus years of photographs from all the mission work they had done being lost. “You could just feel the pain, the emotional loss, and truly realize that this was just a microcosm of what so many people are going through up there. It was just astounding to see all of the devastation.” The silver lining, Laurvick said, was seeing the students from St. Luke’s
reach out to the Boulder teens as they dove in without hesitation and did whatever they could to help out, while doing the best they could to put a smile on a few faces. One of those local teens who headed up was Mountain Vista sophomore Hannah Smith, who was accompanied by her brother Grant and their father. “I just really wanted to do something about it to help out,” she said, after a day that included moving furniture and paperwork out of 10 rooms. “I enjoy community service and it was good to be able to reach out. Some of the people had their homes damaged as well, including their pastor. I wanted to make a difference.”

Retreat leads to goals, next steps Malley hosts bazaar About 90 vendors will display goods
Revitalization, healthy choices, mental issues emerge as priorities
By Tom Munds
By Jennifer Smith
firstname.lastname@example.org By the end of the 24-hour Littleton Community Retreat on Oct. 19, it was evident that the city has a wealth of health resources that work together well, but promoting them more could help fill in some gaps. “We’re a coalition here, and we already have a backbone in place,” said David Peters, retired community outreach coordinator for Centura Health/St. Anthony Hospital. The event, run by a nonprofit organization not affiliated with the city, started with the broad theme of “Building a Healthy Community for All.” Attendees honed in on three goals they hope to achieve: revitalization of the Littleton Boulevard corridor, removing the stigma from mental-health issues and “Making the Healthy Choice the Easy Choice.” Mike Braaten, assistant city manager and the only city employee in attendance, facilitated the revitalization group. He said its next steps would be to work with the South Metro Denver Realtors on a smartgrowth workshop for the community, become familiar with existing city plans, be involved with increased neighborhood engagement efforts established in the city’s 2014 budget, and help develop visions and goals for the neighborhood. As part of that effort, the group envisions a “charette,” defined as an intensive, collaborative session to find a solution to a problem that integrates the interests of a diverse community. “We really want to expand the communication piece,” said Braaten. Peters led the “Make the Healthy Choice the Easy Choice” group. “It’s difficult, especially for people of low income and low means,” he said, noting that lack of transportation can affect access to healthy

Photo by Jennifer Smith food, which is often more expensive than cheap, empty calories. The group wants to support education around food labeling, urge people to donate healthier items to food pantries, expand the use of South Suburban Parks and Recreation’s fitness van and more. Braaten noted that Littleton was the first city to join the LiveWell Colorado HEAL Cities and Towns Campaign. HEAL stands for “Healthy Eating, Active Living.” The program is designed to help city officials adopt policies that improve access to physical activity and healthy food. It’s a partnership between LiveWell Colorado and the Colorado Municipal League, funded through a grant from the state health department. Lisa Traudt of the Arapahoe/ Douglas Mental Health Network led the group focusing on mental-health and substance-abuse issues. A priority for its members is promoting ADMHN’s Mental Health First Aid program, a two-day, 12-hour course that teaches everyday people how to recognize the signs and symptoms of mental illness, substance abuse and
eating disorders. Attendees learn to assess issues, listen nonjudgmentally, give reassurance and encourage self-help to those who are in need. Traudt said the more people who take the class, the further it will go to lessening the stigma of people with mental illness. One in four people have been diagnosed with some form of a mental illness, she said, with bipolar disorder being the agency’s most common diagnosis. “I get goosebumps thinking about all of the conversations over the last two days,” she said. “I’m blown away by the community acceptance and the passion that this community has to get out there and do something.” John Brackney, executive director of the South Metro Denver Chamber of Commerce, congratulated the 45 people who attended the retreat on a job well done. “It’s good that we’re here,” he said, referring to Snow Mountain Lodge near Granby, where the twoday retreat took place. “If we were home, half of us would be on our cell phones, and half of us would be off to other meetings. It’s important to concentrate together as a team.”

The Malley Holiday Bazaar could be the answer to the question of where to find a nice gift for hardto-buy-for persons on the holiday list, as more than 90 vendors display a wide variety of artisan-made items. The bazaar will be held from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. Nov. 2 at the Malley Senior Recreation Center, 3380 S. Lincoln St. As in years past, the Malley center will undergo its annual transformation
from a facility to exercise, take classes or eat lunch into the one-stop shopping place for cool holiday gifts. Expectations are that artisans will offer a variety of items. The majorities of items are made by vendors and can include hand-knitted items and handmade jewelry. Also, in past years there have been a variety of holiday decorations that have ranged from artisancreated holly wreaths with a Broncos theme to handmade ornaments painted with classic winter scenes. While the decorations may be different, expectations are that there will be a wide variety of holiday decorations and holiday-themed items available this year.

Class ring comes full circle Owner gets jewelry 49 years after loss By Jane Reuter
jreuter@ourcolorado news.com Lone Tree’s Paul Squyer recently had a different kind of class reunion. Forty-nine years after losing his class ring in a Wisconsin lake, it is back on Squyer’s hand. A little less shiny than in 1964, but overall in good condition. The ring, a gift from his sister, was only a week old when Squyer took a swim in northwestern Wisconsin’s Perch Lake near his hometown of New Richmond. When the high school senior emerged from the lake, the ring was missing. “I looked in the water, but we’d been swimming there quite a while and I couldn’t find it,” Squyer said. Worse than losing the ring was telling his sister, he remembers. Soon after, Squyer joined the military and left Wisconsin, never to return. Forty-nine years later, on an early October day, scuba diver Ken Johnson’s metal detector alerted him to a find at the bottom of Perch Lake.
Paul Squyer holds his senior class ring, which he lost in a Wisconsin lake 49 years ago. Photo by Jane Reuter The Wisconsin man routinely searches the lake for artifacts, and while it wasn’t the first ring he’d found, this was the first that offered clues to its past. The initials “NRHS” matched that of nearby New Richmond High School. The year “1964” and initials “P.S.” gave
Johnson points from which to start his detective work. “I went to the high school and sat down with the yearbook,” Johnson said. “But nobody in (the class of ) ‘64 had those initials.” That’s because Squyer spent his senior year at a high school in a neigh-
boring community. Unwilling to give up, Johnson kept searching and found Squyer’s name in the 1962 yearbook. His was the only name that matched the initials on the ring. “After finding the name in the ‘62 book, I just did an Internet search,” Johnson said. “He came up on Facebook, and listed his hometown as New Richmond, Wis. That was the final clue.” Squyer said he initially thought Johnson’s phone call about the found ring was a joke. “I was really surprised,” he said. “I did call my sister and tell her. She said, `I guess, after 49 years, I won’t be mad at you anymore.’” Johnson said returning the ring to its original owner was well worth his time. “I thought it was kinda fun,” he said. “I could have taken it down to the guy who buys gold and sold it to him, I suppose. But usually these rings mean something to people.” Squyer plans to have the ring cleaned and resized to accommodate his now-larger hands. “I’ll have to wear it a few days even though I didn’t wear it much when I had first had it,” he said.

Baby, now that was suspenseful Media madness or a pregnant pause, perhaps? Was KOSI radio/9News personality Denise Plante pulling a prank on thousands of Facebook friends when she posted a picture of a pregnancy-testing stick she allegedly used on Oct. 16? She let the drama play out as she posted evolving pictures of the stick as it was turning positive or negative. She even snagged 9News medical expert Dr. John Torres to witness the gag. “Am I pregnant? We will soon find out, Dr. John Torres from @9News is in the house!” Plante posted. The plot thickened with pictures of the stick as it revealed her pregnancy status. And the “results?” “Turns out, I’m just a moody momma. Not pregos ... good news for (husband) Michael Plante.”

Congrats to Lakewood High School for winning the “Good Morning America” contest to have Katy Perry perform a song at their high school! More than 2,000 Lakewood High students lip-synched to Perry’s hit song, “Roar,” as part of the school’s video entry. Perry announced the winner on “Good Morning America” Oct. 18. “For me Lakewood really embodied a whole school spirit. You saw so many different people coming together to do one shot,” Perry said Friday. “It was so interesting and so well done.” Amazingly, the video was shot in one take and has been viewed on Vimeo more than 564,000 times and earned 246,000 views on YouTube. 7News first reported the news. Perry will perform at Lakewood High — the home of the Tigers (how’s that for some cosmic karma!) — on Oct. 25 and will be broadcast on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” Proceeds from the concert reportedly will go to the Colorado flood relief effort. Check out the video at http://vimeo. com/75058173.
I’ve been back to Strings once since owner Noel Cunningham died. Since his wife, Tammy, opted to close the place (running a restaurant is not her thing) the building on 17th Avenue and Humboldt had stood like a monument to a time when the restaurant was frequented by celebrities from stage and screen, along with loyal locals. When it was announced that there would be new life stirring in that space with the occupation of Humboldt Farm — Fish — Wine, a Rock Bottom founder Frank Day project, I, for one, was happy to hear of the rebirth. Humboldt opened recently under the leadership of Concept Restaurants. “From the instant our guests walk in and have that `wow moment’ to the time they leave, we want to make sure their experience here is spectacular and memorable,” said Concepts designer Dianna Lynn. “Whether you are on top of the Denver foodie scene or visiting Humboldt for the first time and looking for an amazing dining experience, we are a welcoming place for everyone.” Parker continues on Page 20

Memories, expectations collide in play ‘From Door to Door’ title is related to Hebrew prayer book By Sonya Ellingboe
firstname.lastname@example.org As the play opens, a depressed Mary (Pamela Vanderpool) is visited by her daughter Deborah (Lisa Rosenhagen), who delivers a canvas and easel in an attempt to bring Mary out of her funk. She might recover a latent talent for art. The play’s title, “From Door to Door” is related to a phrase in a Hebrew prayer book: “l’dor v dor,” from generation to generation, and focuses on Mary’s memories of her interactions with her mother, Bessie, and daughter, Debbie. In the background, grandma Bessie’s ghost hovers (Kathryn Gray) and when Mary tells her about the painting, she repeats an earlier reaction: “There are no girl artists,” a position that kept Mary from attending art school/college, although she was an excellent student. “Dreams do not pay the rent or buy the food … The world is a dangerous place … The papa makes money, the mama buys food, the daughter helps the mama, Bernard goes to school.” “On the other side,” she declares, marriages are arranged. This is in response to her granddaughter’s marriage announcement. She also has old-fashioned ideas about car-

Her pronouncements bring a laugh from the audience, but are part of a generational pattern that her daughter and granddaughter don’t accept well. “Now that I can do what I want to, I can’t remember what it was,” Mary sighs after years of complying with the wishes of others. The play covers the history of 65 years — from 1935 to 2000 — and is a story that applies to generations of women everywhere. Traditions are observed and forgotten, expectations are frustrated, new ways added to the family context. Director Richard Pegg, himself an immigrant from England, designed the set which, with its collection of doors and picture frames, suggests various residences and generations over the years. This family moved often for a better rent, perhaps with a deal for papa to help with maintenance. The title applies here too. Jewish playwright James Sherman, a Chicago writer and teacher, said in a talkback on
Pamela Vanderpool, Lisa Rosenhagen and Kathryn Gray play three generations of Jewish women in “Door to Door,” presented by Theatre Or at the Mizel Arts and Culture Center. Courtesy photo Oct. 14 that he wrote the play for his mother and that Bessie and her Max were modeled after his European immigrant grandparents. He added that he had been in Seoul, South Korea, and a woman there said Bessie was just like her grandmother. The three actresses, Kathryn Gray, Pamela Vanderpool and Lisa Rosenhagen, talked about preparing for this play. Only Rosenhagen is Jewish and she did not do a traditional Bat Mitzvah, she said. She did share memories and family customs with her fellow cast members and they had a Yiddish coach. (Rosenhagen’s daughter is
going to Hebrew School and embracing her Jewish heritage.) Gray, who is an expert in dialects, had the older woman’s speech, mannerisms and rhythms perfected. The script was well-researched and written throughout. Note that scenes do not always occur in a linear manner, so the audience has to shift gears at times. “From Door to Door” is an insightful look at family life, well directed and acted. One needs to note the Mizel Arts and Culture Center’s schedule when planning a ticket buy.
Pearly gates await … and await ... and await Dark tale has lots of funny lines

By Sonya Ellingboe
sellingboe@ourcoloradonews. com While “Vigil” focuses on a dark story — a misanthropic man waiting for his aunt to die — the play, written by Canadian Morris Panych, is filled with funny lines and situations, enhanced by two terrific actors, Patty Mintz Figel (Grace) and Larry Hecht (Kemp). Cherry Creek Theatre presents its productions at the gorgeous Shaver-Ramsey Showroom, surrounded by exotic rugs — old and new — a setting used by designer Richard Pegg to enhance the look of each production. The company is remounting a play these actors performed elsewhere seven years ago, also under the direction of versatile Billie McBride. Lights focus on a bedroom, upstairs in an older home. In the bed, centrally placed, is an elderly lady — with an amazingly expressive face and eyes. Figel only speaks two words in Act I, but the audience can read her thoughts, from the first moment that the bell rings, the door downstairs opens and there are approaching footsteps on the

A large man with a suitcase appears. She looks terrified. It’s Kemp, played to the hilt by veteran actor Hecht, who says he’s quit his job at a second-rate savings and loan to come and stay with her while she dies.
He has received a letter from her saying she’s dying and there is no one else in the family. (Nor does he have anyone else.) “I didn’t expect you’d be glad to see me,” he observes. Does she want to be cremated? Figel’s face reg-
isters fear and then puzzlement. “I spoke to a funeral director,” he says the next day as the frilly apron-clad Kemp delivers a tray with butterscotch pudding. “You don’t need recorded music.” Ongoing criticism of his aunt
for not having his picture anywhere — “I sent you one when I had the mumps” — nor coming to visit him, is mingled with bitter memories of a conflicted childhood and adolescence — he had gender issues and was bullied by schoolmates. Now a bellicose middleaged man with no friends, he is at once nasty and funny. And Hecht, who is almost the only voice we hear throughout, portrays Kemp brilliantly. Time passes through Christmas, when she surprises him with a gift; New Year’s Eve with champagne; the arrival of spring on the street. Kemp looks out the window regularly to report on what’s going on and background sounds such as schoolchildren at play filter in. Summer passes and it’s almost fall when a surprise ending completes a really well-crafted evening of drama, so unusual that the theater aficionado won’t want to miss it.
It’s all about the sports in Denver stage show Avenue Theater offers entertaining production By Sonya Ellingboe
email@example.com “ASTN Sports Network,” it says on the backdrop, and underneath there are pennants and a trio of desks on the small Avenue Theater stage. It’s time for a performance of “Complete World of Sports (Abridged)” written by the group who first produced “Compleat Works of Shakespeare (Abridged)” some years ago, where the works of the Bard are dispatched in two hilarious hours. Enter Damon Guerrasio, Eric Mather and Steven J. Burge to assure you that they
will talk about every sport ever played in less than two hours. (And some you may not have heard about.) There will be nine categories, played on seven continents — from then until now … And they’re off in a cloud of dust for an evening of well-timed physical comedy and clever spins on network sportscasters and athletes. They alternate between announcing and playing sports themselves, changing costumes — and the subject — at lightning speed. When announcing, they have the rhythm and manner of the guys you hear broadcasting Sunday games. When they’re demonstrating how to play, it’s silly and great fun. “Stick and ball sports” are discussed; golf, ice hockey, tennis. And baseball — so
boring it puts Mather to sleep, although he’s assured “there’s a lot going on you can’t see.” Our trio, directed by the skilled Bob Wells, makes a quick visit to Ancient Greece and the Simpsons and to the Roman Empire (archery, curling,) In A.D. 1604, Elizabethans were bear-baiting and Ophelia failed her swimming test. We visit Aborigines in Australia for boomerang throwing and Guerrasio in South America with the invention of basketball — with a human head. In America, circa 1776, “they took the game of lacrosse as their own.” Bagpipes and Scottish golfers appear. Is golf a game or a sport? Answer: “They show it on ESPN.” This trio of skilled comics continued a
high-energy, precisely timed routine that gets to the Olympics and a Parade of Nations, which involved enlisting a few game audience members. The degree of backstage organization that kept the costumes coming was extraordinary. This show is fun for the sports fan and the non-sports fan and only runs through this weekend.
If you go “The Complete World of Sports” plays through Oct. 26 at the Avenue Theater, 417 E. 17th Ave., Denver. Performances: 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Friday, Saturday. Tickets: $26. 303321-5925, avenuetheater.com.

Paintings, drawings, sculptures at library Highlands Ranch artist shows work in ‘Reflections’ By Sonya Ellingboe
firstname.lastname@example.org When Reen Gottron travels, she carries watercolors and pencils in a special backpack.

A viewer can stage a sort of scavenger hunt: Look down the long rows of book stacks on both floors and there will probably be a painting, framed by cases at the row’s end. Some are near the study desks on the second floor and others were finding their way into the children’s room — starting with a quizzical-looking iguana that Gottron sketched in the Galapagos. Did it really smile for its portrait? She hopes to lure children and families upstairs to look at more art after they see a few images. While she and her husband have lived in Colorado, Wyoming and New Mexico over the years, led by his career as a mining engineer, they have traveled the world. As

Courtesy photo a result, one sees images of Canyonlands, Maroon Bells, a Denver cityscape — and several views from the artist’s Highlands Ranch back yard (“Mount Evans from Highlands Ranch”). And that viewer can take an armchair trip to Kauai; to the Galapagos; to Antarc-
tica, including a penguin; to old New England, coastal New Zealand and closer to home: Buchart Gardens in Victoria, British Columbia, where she sketched a delicate larkspur. On the second floor are a few examples of her stone sculpting, which include the
“Apple Slices” illustrated here. They are created from Yule marble, found at the town of Marble in Colorado’s beautiful Crystal River Valley. Each year, Denver sculptor Madeline Weiner holds weeklong sculpture symposiums there, which draw artists from near and far — “from novices to some with world reputations,” Gottron said. On a table, Gottron exhibits a large “Teardrop” that begs to be stroked. Next to it, she has a series of pictures illustrating her process in discovering this sleek image in a block of stone. She carves in her home studio. Her early years were in Ohio, near Lake Erie, and her undergraduate art training was at Loretto Heights College in Denver with well-known sculptor Bill Joseph. She said she learned the basics: “excellent” courses in drawing, figure study, silversmithing, printmaking, sculpting and more … She wrote: “the exhibit is exhilarating for me in a very unexpected way. I darn near died in January of complications caused by the NORO virus — healthy one day, hospitalized the next for 21 days ….” Getting ready for the show meant sorting, housecleaning, soul searching: “opening portfolios, going through stacks. It became clear to me that some work had served its purpose and needed to be tossed …” Other pieces responded happily to a new mat and frame, ready for a second life. She talks of the nagging inner voice that drove her at 65, involving her helpful husband, Fritz, in framing and hauling art. The resulting “Reflections” is a collection of work she can feel proud of and happily share with her community.

Ralph Nagel’s colorful world on display 42 watercolors, oils in museum exhibit By Sonya Ellingboe
email@example.com The Changing Gallery at the Littleton Museum is filled with images that reflect the vision of painter Ralph Nagel, winner of Best of Show in the 2012 Own an Original show sponsored by Littleton’s Fine Arts Board. Each year, the OAO winner is invited to hang a solo show at the museum, and Nagel exhibits 42 watercolors and oils through Oct. 27. The 2012 juror was well-known Englewood artist Sandra Kaplan, who chose Nagel’s sunlit “Pine Needle Branch, Provence” as the best artwork in the large show. It is included in the current exhibit, as are a selection of watercolors and three oil paintings. On the right wall, as a visitor faces into

GALLERY OF GAMES
ARIES (Mar 21 to Apr 19) A colleague might offer to open a door for you professionally. But before you walk through it, be sure this “favor” isn’t attached to an obligation you might find difficult to discharge. TAURUS (Apr 20 to May 20) Your creativity, your persistence and your reliability could lead to a major career shift. Be sure to use that other Taurean trait, your practicality, when discussing what the job offers. GEMINI (May 21 to Jun 20) A changing situation might require some adjustments you might not have been prepared to make. However, flexibility in this matter could be the best course to follow at this time. CANCER (Jun 21 to Jul 22) You’re in a period of fluctuating moods, which is not unusual for the Moon Child. Your emotions stabilize by the 25th. Meanwhile, try to hold off making major decisions until then. LEO (Jul 23 to Aug 22) That keen sense of perception helps you hunt down those minute details that others overlook. And, of course, your Leonine ego will accept the expected praise with good grace. VIRGO (Aug 23 to Sept 22) Be careful not to be confrontational when raising a work-related issue. Better to make a request than a demand. And, of course, be prepared to back up your case with facts. LIBRA (Sept 23 to Oct 22) Your ego might be hurt when a colleague turns down your offer to help. But accept it as a rejection of your offer, not of you. A friend from the past could re-emerge by week’s end. SCORPIO (Oct 23 to Nov 21) A flow of positive energy turns a work project you didn’t want to do into something you actually love doing. Now, take that attitude into your social, intimate life -- and enjoy what follows. SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 to Dec 21) Working hard to meet your professional goals is fine. But don’t neglect your private life, especially where it concerns your more cherished relationships. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) “Patience” remains the key word in dealing with an emotionally sensitive situation involving a close friend or family member. Help comes your way by week’s end. AQUARIUS (Jan 20 to Feb 18) With new information coming in, it’s a good time to rethink some of your goals without taking suggestions from others, no matter how well-meaning they might be. PISCES (Feb 19 to Mar 20) Making progress on your project is relatively easy in the early part of the week. A problem could arise midweek. But all goes swimmingly once it’s resolved. BORN THIS WEEK: Holding fast to your principles, no matter what, inspires others to follow your example. (c) 2013 King Features Synd., Inc.

pirates come up a point short Weld Central wins at Englewood’s homecoming By Tom Munds
email@example.com Frustration and anger showed on the faces of Englewood players following the Oct. 18 homecoming football game loss to Weld Central, 14-13. “I know all of you are hurting,” Pirates coach Jay Graves told the players after the game. “The coaches are hurting too. We
came close, but close isn’t good enough. Right now, we need to pull together and comfort each other because your teammates, your brothers, are hurting.” The Pirates, now 3-5 on the season, will be looking for a win Oct. 25 when they are home against Vista Peak. It could be a challenge as the Bison have a 4-4 record and are coming off back-toback league victories including last week’s 52-13 win over Skyview. Vista Peak likes to throw the ball. Quarterback Noah Butler is 88 of 161 for 1,298 yards and 11 touchdowns. The Bison team
does run the ball, averaging 162 yards a game. Butler is also the rushing leader, as he has carried 90 times for 488 yards. Englewood likes to keep the ball on the ground. Nick Bersagel is the rushing leader with 117 carries for 828 yards, and has scored seven touchdowns. But the Pirates do throw the football. Quarterback Isiah Mestas is 25 of 41 for 518 yards and has passed for nine touchdowns. There will be a 7 p.m. kickoff for the Oct. 25 Pirates-Bison game that will be played in the Englewood High School Stadium. Last week’s Englewood-Weld Central
game was almost like two different games. The Rebels took advantage of two fumble recoveries to roll up 14 points in the first half and kept Englewood off the scoreboard. Englewood took the second-half kickoff and put together a solid scoring drive. Mestas passed to Chris Gutierrez to drive deep into Rebel territory. Bersagel carried the ball into the end zone, the extra point try was good and the score was 14-7 with 5:44 left in the third quarter. Pirates continues on Page 22
Cross country season ends at regionals Englewood runs well, but no Pirate qualifies for state By Tom Munds
firstname.lastname@example.org The Pirates cross country season ended at the Oct. 17 regional meet at deKoevend Park, which was a week shorter than the Englewood High School runners had hoped because they all wanted to go to state. The regional meet is the race that determines the teams and the individual runners who qualify for state, and marks the end of the season for all other teams and runners. There are separate meets for boys and for girls. The top four teams in each race advanced to state, as did all runners who finish in the top 15, regardless of team. Englewood had a team in the boys race. A school has to have at least five runners to be in the team competition, but there were only two Pirate girls at the Oct. 17 meet. “Today didn’t go well for us,” Pirates coach Bill Ambron said after the races. “Our boys ran well but we knew we weren’t strong enough to challenge for a team spot. But, Chad Glover has been our leader all season and had been running well enough
Chad Glover, Cole Horan and Mitch MacDonald lead the other Englewood runners as they warm up for the Oct. 17 regional race. The Pirates ran well but didn’t qualify for state. Photo by Tom Munds to get an individual state spot. Unfortunately, he cramped up today and fell well back in the field.” Glover was 14th at the one-mile mark, but experienced cramping problems and finished 54th in the field with a time of 19:10, about two minutes slower than his time a week before regionals.
Cole Horan ran a 19:47, Mitch MacDonald posted a 20:32 and Zach Avjean ran a personal best 22:09. Collin Owens battled through a painful groin injury to run a 23:36. Avjean, a freshman, said his first regional race was fun even though he was tired at the end.
“I ran pretty well today,” he said after the race. “I ran a 22:09, which is more than a minute faster than I have been running this season.” He said he likes to run and took up cross country to follow in the footsteps of his older sister. “Running is fun because it gives me a lot of time to think about all kinds of things,” he said. “When I am running, I am thinking about music, school, girls and a whole lot of things that just pop into my head.” There were two Pirates in the girls race. Shawna Eldridge finished 73rd with a time of 23:25 and Natalie Pena was 95th with a time of 25:32. The regional meet was the final race for senior and four-year letter winner Pena. “It was a little hard today because I was sick all last week,” Pena said. “Since I haven’t been training for a week, it is hard to get back into it to run a race like this. I pushed myself but my time was about what I ran the first two races this season.” She said it was a big field and everyone was competitive. Pena said she didn’t go out fast early. “I felt pretty good in the final mile and pushed hard,” she said. “I didn’t record the time I wanted for my last race but it did feel good to pass a couple of other runners in that last mile and be ahead of them at the finish line.”

Lions lose tough volleyball match Littleton coach says team is better than record By Tom Munds
email@example.com The play of the Littleton High School volleyball team gave its fans a lot to cheer about even though the Lions lost the Oct. 15 match to Regis, 3-0. “We are a good team even though we haven’t won many matches. We have talented players who battle hard on every play. Despite the fact we play solid games, wins have been hard to come by,” Lions coach Margaret Whalen said before the Oct. 15 game. “This is a tough league and we are one of the smallest schools in the league, playing against teams from schools twice our size. We ignore that, and I am proud of our team because, while we haven’t won many matches, our team has played hard and been close in just about every game this season.” The Lions and prep volleyball are in
Pirates Continued from Page 21
Englewood intercepted a Rebel pass and drove deep again. Weld Central put on a stubborn goal line stand and kept the Pirates out of the end zone. The Pirates defense kept Weld Central from moving the ball and forced a punt. Once again, Englewood offense moved the ball, driving deep into Rebel territory. Bersagel again was called on, ran a sweep behind good blocking and scored the touchdown late in the quarter. Englewood elected to try for a twopoint conversion but the effort failed, so Weld Central retained a 14-13 lead. The final quarter was a back-and-forth
the home stretch of the season. Littleton closed out the regular schedule Oct. 17 at Castle View, then will close out the season by hosting a tournament Oct. 25 and 26. So far, the teams coming to the tournament are Fairview, Fruita, Montbello and Poudre, with expectations more teams will sign up before the bracket is finalized. The first round will begin at 4 p.m. Oct. 25 and the Oct. 26 action will begin at 8 a.m. with all matches played at Littleton High School, 199 E. Littleton Blvd. Judging by statistics, the Oct. 15 Littleton-Regis match appeared to be one-sided, since the Lions are 4-13 on the season and Regis is 15-2 overall and atop the league with a 9-0 record. But the play in the Lions-Raiders match didn’t reflect the difference in season wonloss records. The home fans cheered loud as Lions players blocked Raider kill attempts, made digs by diving to keep the play going by preventing the ball from hitting the floor, or slammed spikes across the net to score points. A team wins a game by scoring 25 points,
but must win by two points. A match can go to five games, but the first team to win three games wins the match. In the first game, the Lions built an early lead, but Regis tied the score at 23-23. The seesaw battle continued with teams exchanging points until the Raiders finally won 28-26. The Raiders took an early lead in the second game and, despite a determined Lions comeback effort, won the game, 2518. The third game was another hardfought battle. Like in the other two games, there was great play on both sides of the net and every point was hotly contested. The score was tied 16-16 when Regis edged ahead and won the deciding game, 25-22. “This is kind of how the season has gone. We played hard, we worked hard but just couldn’t get those points needed to win,” the coach said after the game. She said the strength of her team is the senior leadership and the ability to control the ball when it is on the Lions’ side of the net.
She said her senior leaders include Sami Wong, Natasha Habert, Sela Tharan and Emily Gramer. Since Oct. 15 was senior night, the four players were honored before the match as they were crowned with pink tiaras, given blow-up volleyballs with their names on them and gift bags. Tharan, a recognized team leader, said after the match that it has been a fun but difficult season because the Lions haven’t won a lot of games. “We don’t have a lot of wins but I am very proud of our team,” she said. “Everyone has worked very hard to get better and we have come a long way toward being the volleyball team we want to be.” Tharan said she started playing volleyball in the first grade and it quickly became her favorite sport. “I think my strength as a player is my passion for the game and my leadership by example,” she said. “People have told me they haven’t seen a player get after the game like I do. I guess that is because I love volleyball so much and it shows in how I play the game.”
battle. Englewood got the ball with 2:08 left in the game and tried to mount a drive. It ended on a fourth down and 12 yards to go play. The pass appeared on target for a first down but the Rebel defender knocked the ball away and it fell incomplete. Weld Central ran out the clock and got the win, 14-13. Several players were visibly upset as the Pirates gathered after the game. “This was the homecoming game with all the emotion surrounding it so it was a tough one to lose, particularly by one point,” Coach Graves said after the game. “Our kids played their tails off. I know it hurts right now but I hope our kids, particularly our young kids, can learn from this experience and prepare even harder for Vista Peak next week.” Junior Tyler Ceasar took a minute to gain his composure before he talked about
the game. “This hurts a lot but it is not about me. It hurts because all of us wanted to win this game for our seniors to give them good memories of the homecoming game,” he said after the game. “We should have won. They aren’t a good team. We beat ourselves early, then didn’t come back.” Ceasar is a running back but also plays linebacker on defense. “I like defense a lot better because I like to hit people,” he said. “I was able to read their plays pretty easy and got through so I could go after the guy with the ball. I did OK but personally, football isn’t about me, it is all about the team and getting the win.”
Teammate Chris Gutierrez helped his team move the ball by catching passes. “It was a good night for me. I was able to find a space and get open pretty easily tonight,” he said. “I work with the quarterback. We have assigned routes, but if I see they are laying off and leaving an open space, I tell him and we try to see if we can team up to complete the pass and gain yardage in the open area.” He said catching a pass in the open is special. “It is a special feeling to catch the ball behind the defender with nothing but green ahead of me,” he said. “I just try to run as fast as I can and ask the Lord to give me even more speed.”

That will be an area of concentration as the founding board prepares the application for the charter next year. “We have Englewood parents who

challenges in urban education. Major goals of the organization in general and with the team’s work in Englewood are to expand time with students by about 30 percent without increased cost and to develop ways to devote more time to professional development for teachers.

The Englewood-Generation Schools contract is to have the consultants work with the Englewood district and schools over two years.

support our effort to establish a charter school here,” she said. “Unfortunately, parents support us but they don’t come out to express their support to the school board. That is one of the issues we’ll work to correct next year.” The proposal was to open the charter school in August 2014 with 200 students in kindergarten through fifth grade. The school would use the Core Knowledge-based curriculum and would grow to a kindergarten through eighth-grade school with 400 students in five years. This marks the second time in two years that many of the same proponents have submitted an application to open a charter school in Englewood and the school board has denied the application. At the Oct. 22 board meeting, Adele Reester, district legal counsel, prepared draft resolution to approve

the charter and to reject the charter. The council adopted the draft resolution to deny the charter request, which included a number of reasons why the application was turned down. Scott Gorsky, school board president, said his biggest concern was the fact, although about 25 Englewood residents wrote letters of intent to enroll children in the charter school, no parents had attended meetings and spoke in support of the proposal. Board member Vicki Howard said she was concerned about the turnover of people on the founding board and about the sustainability. “One reason I don’t favor the proposal is the independent consultants hired by the district to review the application listed the same concerns about the application they listed last year,” said Duane Thomas, board member. “Most of those concerns were not addressed.”

Englewood High School and Englewood Middle School to help the consultants understand the mission and goals of the district. Wendy Piersee, Denver Generation School director, said the organization is excited to be working with the Englewood district. “Generation School had worked with large districts like New York City and Denver in the past,” she said. “This is the first time we are working with a smaller district like Englewood and we feel confident we can help expand learning times and develop critical programs that will benefit both students and teachers within existing contract schedules.” She said this year will be spent designing programs for the upper grades as well as having discussions with elementary school parents and faculty members. “Next year, we plan to implement the program we develop to expand instruction time and professional development for teachers. We also will be working to help develop programs for
post-high school planning,” she said. “We are not sure just what the program will look like but that will be revealed as we move forward and decide on what works best for Englewood.” Future project plans include formation and meetings with focus groups from throughout the district and community to ask members of the groups what they like and what they don’t like about the district. The cost will be about $300,000. Karen Brofft, assistant superintendent, said the district has received grants of about $250,000 and, if other grant applications are approved, grant dollars will cover the entire cost of the project. Ewert noted the decision was driven by teachers. “We have a group of principals and teachers called Team Phoenix working on issues like looking for ways to streamline programs on the new campus,” Ewert said. “The discussion included how to have more times with students. Our research led us to begin discussions with Generation Schools.”
