Olson, Yates win council seats Voters also approve pot ban, protection for park properties By Tom Munds Unofficial election numbers show incumbent Linda Olson keeping her seat as the District 2 city council representative, and determine that Steven Yates won the race for the at-large council position. Additionally, two ballot issues were approved by voters.

Yates and Scott Gorsky were candidates to fill the at-large seat vacated by Mayor Pro Tem Jim Woodward, who chose not to seek another term. Yates received 2,357 votes to 1,815 for Gorsky, a 56.5 percent to 43.5 per- Olson cent lead, in returns released just after midnight on Nov. 6. “Well, it looks like I made it,” Yates said about 9 p.m. Nov. 5. “The campaign was a lot of work and I am grateful that I had a

lot of help from a lot of people. I am thankful for all the support that was provided. Now, I feel my job for the next four years will be to respect all the people, to listen to their comments and act in their best interest.” Yates was born and Yates raised in the Denver area, lived in Englewood and graduated from Cherry Creek High School. Yates has worked at a variety of management positions and said he was tasked with solving

problems with available resources. He has been married for 18 years, and he and his wife have two teenage boys. He said he ran for office to rebuild the business district, protect the rights of people and work to keep taxes low. The other council race was in District 2, where incumbent Linda Olson received more votes than first-time office-seeker Rita Russell.

Adults read to Hay students Volunteers pitch in at school as part of annual event By Tom Munds Regular studies continued on Oct. 31 while once-a-year events at Charles Hay World School included the fact that the majority of students and faculty wore pajamas to class and each class had one or more adults stop by to read a book to the children. The different activities were because Oct. 31 was Hay’s Read Aloud Day. It has been an annual event for a number of years and began to replace the traditional class Halloween parties. This year, about 50 parents, school administrators and community member volunteered to be readers. Karen Brofft, assistant school superintendent, volunteered to read to sixthgraders. “I take part in Hay Read Aloud Day every year,” she said. “Typically, I read to sixthgraders. I feel it is a great way to again connect with kids but to do it being involved in POSTAL ADDRESS

my class when I was a teacher and I enjoyed reading it to my children.” Mason Robertson listened to Brofft read “Talking Eggs.” “I love to read and it’s kind of fun to have an adult read a book to us,” he said. “My favorite books are sports biographies or adventure novels. I have tried listening to audio books and I’ve tried reading books on the computer. Both those things are OK Printed on recycled but I still preserve to read and I really like newsprint.

But the children still got to take part in a Halloween activity, as the Parent-Teacher Organization sponsored a “trick-or-treat street” event after school.

Englewood High School will hold a 100th anniversary celebration Nov. 16, just about a year before a major new chapter for the high school begins with completion of the new seventh- through 12thgrade campus at the end of 2014. For the anniversary celebration, the welcome mat is out as current students, parents, alumni, former faculty members and members of the community are invited to join in on one or more of the Nov. 16 activities. The early events are free and tickets are $5 for the dance that wraps up the celebration. Activities begin at 5 p.m. with tours of the completed portions of what will become the campus that will house the high school, Englewood Middle School and the Englewood Leadership Academy when school resumes in January 2015. From 7 to 9 p.m. visitors can make their way through the older parts of the high school. The self-guided tour will probably be the final time to visit those portions of the current high school building, as that area is scheduled for demolition as phase II of the new campus construction project. The final activity of the evening is the Dance of the Decades. The dance will be held from 7 to 10 p.m. in the field house. The dance will celebrate each of the decades of Englewood High School, so those attending are urged to dress in the attire from the 1950s to the normal attire today. Also, starting at 7 p.m., Englewood High School merchandise, including old and new Pirates gear, will be on sale. A great deal of the history of Englewood education is documented books about the community. In “History of Englewood, Colorado,” published in 1994, an article written by the late Beverly Simon stated Englewood education history dates back to 1863, 40 years before Englewood became a city in 1903. Simon wrote about a number of schools in the area, including one of the first that was a classroom in a portion of the John McBroom cabin. “Wooded Nook, a story of Englewood,” compiled in 1978 by a group of high school students, stated the first school built in the area probably was the Hawthorn school that was built in 1892. It was a one-room school with 21 students and one teacher. In the history book, Simon also wrote there were two Arapahoe County school districts provided education in what is now School continues on Page 8

A Facebook page that’s not antisocial media Sept. 22 … that was a really lovely thing you did today, giving flowers to the girls who weren’t asked to homecoming. … It was really good to see that someone cared enough to put some good hard effort into being a good person. For a lot of us it was the highlight of our day. … Thank you so much, really. March 5 The other day when everyone in the west atrium pitched in to help the janitors clean up/stack chairs/fold tables? Ya. That was really cool. If you scroll through the Facebook Compliments page of Lakewood High School, you’ll come across many more just like these. “Positive words,” senior Olivia Ehret says, “have the power to change the community.” One could say that is her mantra and why, almost a year ago, she and a friend decided to duplicate the Compliments page she had stumbled upon on the University of Southern California website. “Oh, gosh, I was entranced by it,” Olivia remembers. “I scrolled on it for two hours. I thought if it could be implemented on such a huge campus as USC, it definitely could at Lakewood.” Compliments, after all, are just one more way of spreading a little kindness. But the accolade-filled Facebook pages also reflect a positive use of social media in an age when it is often used as a tool for meanness and spitefulness. Consider the recent suicide of a 12-yearold Florida girl, who investigators say killed herself after continued online harassment by two other girls, 12 and 14. There have been many other such cases reported. Federal government studies report 52 percent of students have been cyberbullied and

25 percent repeatedly through their cell phones or the Internet. The faceless nature of social media makes it alarmingly easy to be unkind, to cause hurt without feeling or seeing the effects or repercussions. Although many describe social media as impersonal, it’s actually quite the opposite. Plenty of emotion flies across the networked miles — sadly, it’s often the hateful kind. Which is what is so nice about a Compliments page: It puts the heart back into the words. Oct. 30 We only recently talked, but you are an amazing person inside and out. I love how you aren’t afraid to be yourself, it is really inspiring! The nice things you say can make people’s day, like it did mine! One of the first such uses of social media occurred in October 2011 when a young man at Iowa City West High School created a Twitter Compliments account as a way to fight back against cyberbullying in the area. The account took off, tweeting more than 3,000 messages in three months. Several other high schools followed, and then universities, including Columbia, Penn State and Brown, spurred the trend with Facebook pages that, for the most part, remain anonymous by asking users to

send compliments to an inbox from which administrators then tag the messages to the recipient’s News Feed. That’s how it’s done at Lakewood High School. “It’s just a nice way for people’s days to be brightened,” Olivia says. “The beauty is in the mystery.” Although the Lakewood page wasn’t started as a response to cyberbullying, Olivia believes it helps keep the negativity and meanness at bay. In almost a year, there’s only been one comment she’s removed. “I think we’d be a lot more positive and healthy society” if we said nicer things to each other, she says. “People would have better self-images of themselves and feel more open communication with other people. And maybe there would be less instances of bullying if people didn’t feel so isolated and lonely.” March 12 Seeing this page makes me want to transfer to Lakewood as soon as possible. I’ve seen bullying all around at my school. There’s NO ONE that has the courage to compliment one other here. I appreciate how everyone treats each other well. … There is an art to complimenting, though. It must be sincere. It must be truthful. Otherwise, it loses the power to uplift and could do just the opposite, says Michael Karlson, a professor at the University of Denver’s graduate school of professional psychology. An insincere compliment makes you “wonder if that other person doesn’t respect you or know you.” But a genuine one can work a little magic. “It can activate a positive image of yourself,” Karlson says. “Sometimes, when we’re feeling depressed and incompetent, it’s a

reminder of who we usually are.” Olivia would agree. “A lot of people they say the compliments have been posted at just the right time,” she says, because “they were having a rough time.” March 13 To the girl in the bathroom who said I was pretty. … Thanks. I really needed that right then. Olivia, quite wise at 17, has an idea about why we aren’t as kind as we could be — we’re afraid of the reaction, of what people might think of us. “Society is kind of closed off in the sense that when we see something positive about someone we keep it to ourselves,” she says, “especially when it’s someone we don’t know that well.“ We need to take the leap. It’s not that difficult. “Kind words can be short and easy to speak,” a Missionaries of Charities Sisters once said, “but their echoes are truly endless.” If we find we can’t say them, maybe we can write them. Oct. 13, via mobile Luka Savarie, I don’t know you at all. But I think you seem like such a cool and down to earth person. Also your haircut is SO cute. 23 like This made my night. (smiley face) thank you so much you lovely, lovely person. And that says it all. Ann Macari Healey’s column about people, places and issues of everyday life appears every other week.

Pirates band ranks third at state Englewood’s baseball-themed performance scores well By Tom Munds Englewood’s trophy case contains another award as the Pirates finished third at the Oct. 25 Class 2A Colorado Bandmasters Association Championships in Grand Junction. The 50-member band began working on the baseball-themed field performance this summer. The performance was titled “Bases Loaded, America’s Favorite Pastime.” To stress the theme, the color guard members donned Englewood baseball uniforms and did part of the performance with baseball bats. “The music had three parts,” said Phil Estes, Englewood bandmaster. “In the first part, the color guard member in the light blue uniform was a baseball star. In the second part of the performance, she strikes out and is sad. But she hits a home run in the final segment of the performance, so it ends on a high note.” A lot of practice goes into preparing for a field performance. The band members have to learn the music and be able to play it while moving. Often the pattern calls for band members to continue playing while walking sideways or even backwards. There were practices during the summer and every school day leading up to the state championships. The music for the themed performance was new to all band members because it was a custom arrangement. Estes said it had a 1940-ish feel to the rhythm, and the

The Englewood Marching Band did its field performance during halftime of a home football game earlier this season. The Pirates did their baseball-themed performance Oct. 25 and took third place in the Class 2A Colorado Bandmasters Association Championships in Grand Junction. Photo by Tom Munds music contained segments of several patriotic songs, as well as “Take Me Out to the Ballgame.” Band member Eric West was assigned to play a solo on his baritone horn, a lowpitched brass instrument. “It was a rush as we got staged and I moved into position for my solo,” he said. “It was the biggest performance of the year, there were a lot of people in the stands and I sort of freaked out at first.” However, he said when he hit the first note of his solo all the butterflies disappeared. “Once I started playing, I focused on the

music,” West said. “It was my best performance of the year and I feel it came at just the right time.” The junior said the baseball-themed field performance was fun. “I felt the music and movements created a positive vibe for the band members so we all could have fun while we were marching,” he added. The Pirates Marching Band posted a

score of 68.3, with Cortez in second place with a score of 68.9. D’Evelyn won the 2A title with a score of 71.4. Estes said the score is the highest at state in recent Pirates marching band history. “A few schools moved down from 3A to 2A this year,” he said. “But we performed well enough to score higher than last year and once again finish third in state.”

RTD PUBLIC MEETINGS Proposed Union Station Service Changes for May 2014

Former silversmith Sam Todd talks about the eagle and other items he has carved out of wood. He said he has been carving items for 40 years and had some of them on display at the Nov. 2 holiday bazaar held at the Malley Senior Recreation Center. Photo by Tom Munds

Bazaar is place for unique gifts More than 100 vendors set up shop at Malley By Tom Munds The hum of commerce echoed off the walls of the Malley Senior Recreation Center during the Nov. 2 Holiday Bazaar. “This is such a great event I try to come every year,” Arapahoe County resident Candice Peters said as she bought a scarf. “I used to live in Englewood and we always came to the bazaar when I was growing up. I love the event and I do about 90 percent of my holiday gift shopping here because there are so many really nice and often unique items available.” Malley holds the event every year, and this year, there were 106 vendors, which is the most in the bazaar’s recent history. Staff members placed vendor tables in the usual places such as the gymnasium and main meeting room but also set up booths in several small adjacent rooms. A tour of the vendor spaces showed a major-

ity of the items were handmade. Englewood resident Sam Todd was one of the vendors offering handmade items. His booth displayed his prowess as a wood carver. The items ranged from Broncos logo bolo ties to wooden donkeys that ducked their head and kicked up their heels to the larger items like the American bald eagle perched on a branch. “I spent a lot of years as a silversmith and my hobby has always been woodcarving,” Todd said. “I can’t tell you how long it takes to complete a piece like the eagle. That’s because I work on it a while, then move to something else, and sometime later go back to working on the eagle.” He smiled and said he has no plan for how he works on a time schedule to complete an item. He just does it as the spirit moves him. “I do a little work on a piece here, a little work on it there, and eventually it will be finished,” Todd said. “I try different things. For example, that one bird there on the table is carved out of wood and then I covered it with tin to do something different. When I do things differently, it keep the hobby fun.”

On Sunday, May 11, 2014, the new Union Station Transit Center will officially open in the heart of downtown Denver. This new modern facility will replace Market Street Station (which will permanently close), and serve as a multi-modal transportation hub.

opinions / yours and ours

For all who chew, this spud’s for you There are few things better than a baked potato, but you must never have one before Sept. 22. It’s very bad luck if you do. To be safe, I don’t bake one until the day the clocks fall back. This year that was Nov. 3. In French, a potato is a “pomme de terre”: an apple from the earth. Apples are great too, but you can’t put sour cream or bacon bits on them. French fries in French are “les frites.” Makes no sense. I couldn’t explain why baked potatoes are so wonderful when they are so ordinary and abundant any better than Katharine Hepburn’s description of Spencer Tracy. Hepburn compared Tracy to a baked potato. “A baked potato is pure,” she said. “It’s of the earth, and it’s dependable, that was Spencer.” We rarely had baked potatoes when I was growing up. We had mashed potatoes,

and they’re almost as good as baked potatoes. I played with my mashed potatoes, however. It’s difficult to play with baked potatoes, so immediately you feel more grown up. I am a miserable cook, but I can bake a potato. They are foolproof, unless you take them out of the oven too soon, which I have done. Then they are crunchy, and not so good. Baked potatoes should be prepared when the weather breaks, when summer has packed up, and autumn registers for a while, before winter settles in.

question of the week

Will Fox’s absence hurt the Broncos? After head coach John Fox’s emergency medical procedure that will keep him away from the Broncos’ sidelines for a month or two, Colorado Community Media stopped by the Sports Authority and Target in Highlands Ranch’s Town Center and asked local residents what sort of impact they thought Fox’s absence would have on the team.

“It won’t (have any impact). Peyton is the quarterback, he’s the coach.” — Brandon Nelon, Littleton

“I don’t think we will miss him too much. Del Rio is a good interim coach, and we have Peyton.” — Chris Mueller, Highlands Ranch

“I don’t think it will affect them. I think Jack Del Rio is quite capable. He has proven himself as a head coach.” — Katie Allison, Highlands Ranch

“I don’t think it will affect them; we’ve got Peyton. He could be the coach, the quarterback, he can do whatever.” — Angelina Heuchert, Centennial

Exit onto road less traveled “Two roads diverged in a wood, and I — I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.” From the Robert Frost poem, “The Road Not Taken.” Have you been there, faced with a tough decision or at a crossroad in your life? And if so, did you take the road less traveled or did you follow the path where the ground had been cleared and maybe just a little bit easier to traverse? I have found myself at that decision point on more than one occasion, a true crossroad in my life. And maybe it’s the closet poet in me and huge fan of Robert Frost, but I, in most cases, seem to take the road less traveled. In most cases it has served me well and set me on a new course, adventurous tour, and wild ride. But just as the poem reads, “… and that has made all the difference.” And then there have been those few times where I followed the masses, accepted the easy path, went along to get along, and I found myself either bored or disappointed, always wondering what would have been or could have been had I chosen the road less traveled. You see, I am not a very good “yes” man, and when I find myself at a decision point, especially a critical decision point, I need to be able to evaluate my options and determine what most others might choose to do, and dig in deeper to the “why” behind their decisions. And this is what usually triggers my decision to try an alternate route. When people share with me where they are in the crossroads of their own life, I often encourage them to take the time to clearly write out all of the op-

There may be no better dinner on a snowy evening than a baked potato. It is a simple and honest meal or side dish. Compare this to lobster. You don’t have to euthanize a potato. Compare baking a potato to homemade lasagna or Thai pretzel chicken. You just pre-heat the oven, foil-wrap or olive-oil the potato, and then go do something else for a couple of hours — unless you microwave it. Which I never do. For some reason, I prefer to bake potatoes. It’s a part of their charm. I speed-dial frozen entrees all the time, but I don’t want to speed-dial a potato. I’d add some thoughts about the Irish potato famine, but it’s unpleasant, and I want a pleasant column for a change. No complaints or grudges, or proposals of prison time for tailgaters. This surprised me: “China is now the world’s largest potato-producing country, and nearly a third of the world’s potatoes are harvested in China and India.” India? My No. 1 television program is “Modern

In stark contrast to Washington’s dysfunction, which brought us a 16-day government shutdown and the risk of default in October, Coloradans know what it means to do their jobs day in and day out. Across the state, and in some cases as they recovered from catastrophic flooding, workers in Colorado continued to carry out their duties and meet their responsibilities, in light of the paralysis in Washington. From police officers to teachers, business owners to assembly-line workers, we proved that Colorado doesn’t shut down. Immediately following the shutdown, we traveled across the state to work sideby-side with Coloradans who are working hard day in and day out. Despite challenges, the workers we met with were meeting their obligations, providing for their families, and contributing to our economy. At Adam’s Mountain Cafe in Manitou Springs, owner Farley McDonough quickly put me to work. Between filling waters and wiping down tables, I talked with customers about the hardships and losses they’ve suffered as a result of the mudslides and flooding in Manitou this summer. They also shared with me their frustration with the dysfunction in Washington. Later, when riding with Officer Marcus Juliano on his beat in Pueblo, I witnessed his dedication to his community as he responded to call after call well into the night. In Fowler, at the family-owned Jensen’s Blue Ribbon Processing, Jerry Jensen, the meatpacking plant’s owner, explained the challenges and costs of competing with large companies. Jerry works hard every

When we are faced with a decision point or at a crossroads, we should surround ourselves with strong friends, wise advisers and people we absolutely trust to be our sounding board and help us walk through our options and thought processes around each important decision we need to make. Do I take more risks than I should? Yes. Are they educated risks or guesses? In most cases. Do I follow my heart, my gut, and attempt to balance that with what is going through my head? Yes. But at the end of the day, as Robert Frost says, “Two roads diverged in a wood, and I — I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.” I would love to hear what you do at the crossroads of your life at and I really do believe that this will be a better than good week.

Marvels.” I can’t get enough. Now and then the History Channel has a “Modern Marvels” marathon and I am glued to it. Season 15, Episode 3: “Potato.” Originally aired January 28, 2010. It covers everything about potatoes, and the narrator, justifiably, makes the ordinary potato sound like a major contributor to civilization. The narrator, Lloyd Sherr, has one of the great voices in television. His stage name is Max Raphael, which is a combination of his sons’ names, Max and Raphael. He makes the potato sound heroic. Idaho is sometimes called the “Potato State,” but its real nickname is the “Gem State,” which isn’t very inspiring. You’re in the clear: It’s past Sept. 22, the first day of autumn. Have a baked potato tonight.

day to keep his doors open. At U.S. Tractor and Harvest Inc. in Alamosa, mechanics explained the difficulties small farms are facing due to drought and high feed costs, not to mention the fact that Washington has yet to reauthorize the farm bill. Whether it was substitute teaching in Denver, working at Brown Cycles and Edgewater Brewery in Grand Junction, or hauling onions at Tuxedo Farms in Olathe, the contrast between these hard-working Coloradans and the political antics going on in Washington was crystal-clear. Though the government has reopened — at least temporarily — the effects of this ridiculous and manufactured crisis were undeniably damaging to the country and to Colorado. As we look forward, now is the time for Washington to get its act together and work on priorities important to Coloradans. This includes fixing our broken immigration system, passing the farm bill, and most importantly crafting a balanced bipartisan budget. Democrat Michael Bennet has represented Colorado in the U.S. Senate since 2009.

Resident is senior fitness finalist Award goes to those who inspire others By Tom Munds Englewood resident Bruce Meyer was surprised to learn he was a finalist for the 2013 Richard L. Swanson Inspirational Award, honoring members of the SilverSneakers program whose healthy behavior has made a difference in his or her life while motivating others. “I managed to dodge exercise for 30 years or more. So, I never expected to be honored for exercising,” he said. “I got motivated to begin working out when, in 1998, I had a heart attack that scared me. My wife is a nurse and she insisted I begin exercising and trying to lose weight. We did a lot of walking and then, six years ago, we came to Malley and they inspired me to get serious about exercise. Now, I don’t know that I inspire others, but I have lost 40 pounds, I am having fun and look forward to each of the sessions.” SilverSneakers is a national fitness program designed exclusively for older adults and is available to 10 million eligible members through health care and retirement plans. The Swanson award is an annual event sponsored by Healthways, an independent company seeking to create a healthier world, one person at a time. The process leading up to the award began early this year when Gina Fontaine, Malley program administrator, talked to Meyer about his story and then asked him if it was OK to nominate him for a SilverSneakers award. He said it would be fine to nominate him for the award. Then, he sort of forgot about the whole thing until, in early September, he got a phone call from Healthways headquarters in Arizona telling him he was one of the finalist for the national award. “I wasn’t sure about the call at first and

I was shocked.” There was a celebration at the Malley Senior Recreation Center on Sept. 23 to present Meyer his award. He said it turned out to be a lot of people and a real fun party. He said coming to Malley really helped him focus on exercising and getting fit. “Malley, its staff and this organization is very special,” Meyer said. “I have

never liked to exercise and still don’t. But the people here provide a special support system, everyone is concerned about you and encourages you to keep going. You feel safe, you make friends and there is a lot of socializing that goes along with being active here at Malley.” He said he really became hooked when he became part of the Malley advisory committee. “The city took a brave step to allow the Malley advisory committee because it is made up of people like me who feel like we own this place,” he said. “We want to see

State votes down Amendment 66 By Vic Vela A ballot measure that sought to overhaul the way Colorado schools are funded suffered a sound defeat on Nov. 5. Voters by a resounding margin rejected Amendment 66, a measure that would have created at least $950 million in new taxes annually to fund major school reforms across the state. It was never close. After early returns showed the measure to be doomed, the only matters in question were how wide of a margin the ballot measure would fail by, and at what time would supporters publicly admit defeat — which occurred about an hour after 7 p.m. poll closings. As of the early morning of Nov. 6, Amendment 66 had been rejected by about 66 percent of voters, with 91 percent of precincts reporting. “Perhaps this wasn’t the right transaction,” Gov. John Hickenlooper acknowledged to a room of muted and disappointed supporters from inside downtown Denver’s Marriot Denver City Center. Trying to remain positive, the governor

also said that “no one fought against” the measure’s vision of making funding for Colorado schools a model for the rest of the nation. Hickenlooper said he will continue to strive toward achieving that goal. “Every great social victory in the history of this country was based on a number of failures,” Hickenlooper said. Meanwhile, Amendment 66 opponents crowed. “Colorado families spoke loud and clear,” said Kelly Maher, executive director of Compass Colorado, a group that worked to oppose Amendment 66. “We need substantive outcome-driven reforms to the educational system before we ask families and small businesses to foot a major tax bill.” The measure sought to fund full-day kindergarten, preschool for at-risk youth, and would have provided more resources for English language learners, special education students and children who are in gifted and talented programs. Also, the measure aimed to reduce class sizes and would have reformed perpupil funding statewide in a more equitable fashion, proponents argued.

While the reforms may have sounded good to many people, even the governor acknowledged that the hefty price tag associated with overhauling the new funding system was responsible for turning off many voters. The measure would have raised taxes on all Colorado taxpayers. The two-tiered proposal would have raised income taxes to 5 percent on everyone earning $75,000 or less. Those who earn over that amount would have paid 5 percent on the first $75,000 in taxable income and 5.9 percent on taxable income above $75,000. Colorado’s current income tax rate is a flat 4.63 percent, regardless of income level. The measure sought to put in place legislation that was enacted through Senate Bill 213. The Democrat-sponsored bill — which was signed by Hickenlooper in June — did not receive a single vote from Republican lawmakers. Republicans and other critics blasted the school funding overhaul as a “billiondollar tax hike” that comes at a time when Coloradans are barely coming out of a recession. They also argued that Senate

Bill 213 did not put in place the kind of reforms to warrant that kind of a tax increase. Opponents also argued that much of the revenue that would have been raised through Amendment 66 would have ended up going to school districts other than the ones where taxpayers’ children attend. The measure was rejected in just about every area of the state. For example, late returns showed the measure was failing badly in Adams, Arapahoe, Douglas, El Paso and Jefferson counties. The only large counties that could end up seeing majority support when the votes are officially tallied are Denver and Boulder. The campaign that drove Amendment 66, Colorado Commits to Kids, had a huge fundraising advantage over its opposition, having collected more than $9 million for the measure’s messaging efforts. “Honestly, you could have had the best messaging in the world, I just think that people felt it was too expensive,” Hickenlooper told reporters after his remarks. Maher said afterward, “Never has so much been spent by so few to accomplish so little.”

Colorado voters approve pot tax Money will pay for regulation, school construction By Vic Vela A year after Colorado voters made retail marijuana sales legal, voters on Nov. 5 cleared the way for pot smokers to fund the regulations that will be tied to the newlycreated industry.

showed Olson with 564 votes and Russell with 494, giving Olson a victory of 53.3 percent to 46.7 percent for Russell. “The campaign was a lot of work, way more than I expected when I decided to seek another term on the council,” Olson said about 9:25 p.m. Nov. 5. “I guess I didn’t expect all the negative literature that was distributed and all the misinformation in

Voters overwhelmingly supported Proposition AA, a measure that will slap a 25 percent tax on retail pot sales that were made legal across the state as a result of last year’s passage of Amendment 64. Those sales will begin on Jan. 1. Much of the tax revenue that will be collected through marijuana sales will provide regulatory funding for the new pot industry that was put in place by the Legislature earlier this year. Those regulations, which were put in

place by the Legislature earlier this year, include allowing sales only to adults 21 and over, limits on sale quantities and restrictions on sales to minors. The Department of Revenue will oversee those regulations. Through the passage of Prop AA, a tax structure that was created through House Bill 1318 will be implemented. The taxes which will only affect those who actually purchase the drug - amount to a 15 percent excise tax and a 10 percent retail tax on

each transaction. The first $40 million collected through the Prop AA excise tax will go toward public school construction, while the rest will go into the Marijuana Cash Fund. Cities that allow retail pot sales will see some revenue, as well. Fifteen percent of the retail pot taxes that are collected by the state will be funneled to those municipalities. The revenue will be based on each city’s percentage of pot sales.

that literature. But it appears I will serve another term on the council. In the next four years, I would like to help the city establish ways to provide support and get the senior members of the community involved. I would also like to see an active Neighborhood Watch organization in every block in District 2.” Olson is a professor and department director at the University of Denver. She has lived in Englewood since 1982. She and her husband have three children. The two unopposed candidates on the ballot, Rick Gillit, who represents council District 2, and Municipal Judge Vincent At-

encio, both retained their positions. Residents heavily voted in favor of the city ballot issue 300, mandating the dedication of specific city-owned properties as parks. The latest returns indicate the issue had received 4,324 yes votes while only 669 votes were cast against the proposal — giving the measure an approval of 86.6 percent to 13.4 percent. An advisory question asking whether the city should ban the recreational marijuana industry in Englewood passed 51.6 percent to 48.4 percent. There were 2,610 voters favoring a ban, with 2,450 against it. The turnout for municipal elections is

traditionally low, and this year followed that tradition. In Arapahoe County, 97,368 ballots were cast, which was 25.7 percent of the 378,278 ballots provided to registered voters. Englewood’s turnout was lower. Based on August data, there were 20,515 registered voters in the city, and about 24.7 percent of residents cast ballot on citywide issues. August data showed that District 2 had 4,916 registered voters, and 1,058 or about 21.5 percent of the District 2 registered voters took part in selecting that district’s council representative.

Englewood, District 22 and District 7. The two districts finally merged in 1922. Also in the 1994 history book, Charles Dolezal wrote the first school in Englewood was Roosevelt School, a one-room building at 3400 S. Clarkson St. built near the turn of the 20th century. In another history book article, Simon wrote that the Old North School was built in 1905 at 3800 S. Bannock St. Eventually, all 12 grades were taught at the Old North School, with the upper floor reserved for the high school. Englewood’s first high school graduation was held for students from the Old North School in 1914. There was one girl in the graduating class, but no information could be found to determine how many graduates there were in the class. Englewood history records that, in 1920, a new junior/senior high school was built with the main entrance at 3650 S. Broadway. The building that eventually became Flood Middle School had junior high school classes on the lower floor and high school classes on the second floor. Commercial Field, located across the street from the junior/senior high school, was the location for athletic games. It was the home field for the Englewood Pirates in their glory years when they won three successive state football championships in

Englewood High School will move into this building, which will be part of new seventh- through 12th-grade campus when it opens in January 2015. Thus the high school begins its second 100 years in the new building that is now under construction. Courtesy art 1936, 1937 and 1938. Contributors to the 1994 noted that additions were made to the middle school/ high school building in 1926 and 1930. Because of the traffic noise, the main entrance was moved to the Lincoln Street side of the building. In 1953, high school students moved into the newly constructed Englewood High School building at 3800 S. Logan St. The school district bought 25 acres of land for the project in 1938. World War II put those plans on hold. Work got started in the late 1940s and the first wing and field house

were completed in 1951. Student population reached its peak in 1957 when about 1,200 sophomores, juniors and seniors attended Englewood High School. Between 1951 and 1977, there were 15 additions to the original building. EHS became a four-year high school in 1979. Now, Englewood education is undergoing a major change. Voters approved a $40 million bond issue and the state provided an $8 million grant for Englewood to create a new seventh- through 12th-grade campus on the Englewood High School location. Phase 1 is completed and, over the Thanks-

giving break, high school classrooms will temporarly relocate in what will become the middle school wing while the remainder of the high school building is demolished so the second and final phase can be constructed. The target completion date is December 2014. A separate portion is the already-completed major renovation of Englewood Middle School so, when the middle school moves to the new campus in December 2014, the buildings at 300 W. Chenango Ave. will become the Colorado’s Finest Alternative High School campus.

englewood police report Drugs found on pair

The investigation and search of a 30-year-old man and a 39-year-old woman who were stopped by police as part of an effort to assist the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office Impact Team resulted in their arrests. Englewood police officers went to the area of East Dartmouth Avenue and South Acoma Street about 7:25 p.m. Oct. 29 to assist the impact team by helping stop a vehicle leaving a suspected drug house. Englewood officers stopped the vehicle in the 3200 block of South Broadway. During a routine check of the man and woman, officers were told the man was on probation for possession of a weapon, so they asked him if they could search him. Officers found two small plastic bags of heroin and a small plastic bag of methamphetamine in his pants pockets so he was taken into custody. Englewood officers then asked the woman if she was carrying anything illegal. She said she had a scale and small plastic bags in her purse. She was arrested for possession of drug paraphernalia. A search later found

she had small plastic bags of heroin stuffed down the front of the pants. The man and the woman were taken to the Arapahoe County jail. The both could face charges of possession of controlled substances.

Wanted man arrested

Englewood police stopped a man for jaywalking, found a warrant had been issued in Littleton for his arrest and later discovered he was also carrying illegal drugs. The officer stopped the 26-year-old man for jaywalking in the 4800 block of South Broadway. A routine identity check showed Littleton had issued a warrant for his arrest. He was arrested as a result of the warrant. As part of the routine search, officers found he was carrying three hypodermic needles in his jacket. One of the needles contained liquid that tested positive for methamphetamine. The 26-year-old was taken to the Arapahoe County jail on the warrant. He also could face charges for possession of a schedule II controlled substance and violation of a protection order.

Challenge Day is meeting topic Gathering provides info, free hot dogs By Tom Munds Englewood’s Challenge Day Program officially begins in January, but the district is holding a community information meeting about the program at 6 p.m. Nov. 16 in the auditorium at Englewood Middle School, 300 W. Chenango Ave. “The Challenge Day activities will be presented to the students at Englewood High School, Middle School and Leadership Academy. During a session, the students take part in team-building activities,” said Karen Brofft, deputy school superintendent. “But the Challenge Day Program is much more than just a one-day event. It is a continuing program to help our students become more positive forces in their school

and in their community.” Since it was established in 1987, the Challenge Day Program has been presented to more than a million seventh- through 12th-grade students in 400 cities in the United States and Canada. The website for the non-profit organization defined Challenge Day as going beyond the traditional anti-bullying effort by seeking to build empathy and ignite a movement of compassion and positive change. The ideal goal is to influence not only the school but the entire community. The Challenge Day programs will bring students, staff and community members together on Jan. 7, 8 and 9. The sessions will be small and there will be three sessions a day. In addition to faculty and administrators, the district is seeking to enlist 270 adult volunteers to take part in the program the district website describes as “the way to jumpstart the move toward a more positive school climate.”

Concert aids flood victims

“A Painter at Work” by Paul Cezanne, 1874-75, oil on panel, is in the “Nature as Muse” portion of “Passport to Paris,” and shows the start of “plein air” painting by the Impressionists as oil paints became available in tubes. From the Frederick Hamilton Collection. Photos courtesy of the Denver Art Museum

Art offers view of French society ‘Passport to Paris’ at Denver museum By Sonya Ellingboe Three related shows meld together flawlessly at the Denver Art Museum to give local art lovers a welcoming visit to Paris and its environs. Beloved artists appear in more than one collection, showing how they bridged across years and segments of society and from academic standards to joyful renderings of sunshine and the outdoors. “Passport to Paris” continues through Feb. 9, 2014, in the Hamilton Building. “Court to Cafe: Three Centuries of French Artworks from the Wadsworth Atheneum” is the entry point, and it features 50 works from the collection of the famous museum in Hartford, Conn. These works begin with 17th-century paintings of religious scenes, mythological subjects, landscapes, still lifes and genre scenes and extend to the early 19th century. This DAM installation in the second floor Anschutz Gallery is especially welldesigned and features high color, handstenciled walls, architectural moldings and decorative art from the museum’s own collection, such as damask chairs and small furniture pieces. Music plays in the background. Another pleasing touch is the inclusion of several stylish white dresses, matching the ones depicted in paintings of intimate home scenes. They are on loan from the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Since works range from the early 1600s to the early 1900s, the visitor finds early works by Edgar Degas, Camille Pissaro, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Paul Cezanne, Vincent Van Gogh, Henri de Toulouse Lautrec and Claude Monet here, plus later works in the two subsequent exhibits, weaving threads of the story together. Next stop is “Drawing Room: an Intimate Look at French Drawings from the Esmond Bradley Martin Collection,” a collection that is kept at the DAM, although its owner lives elsewhere. It is on the second floor in the Martin and McCormick Gallery. Included are 39 works on paper in a range of techniques. Sketches by artists from across the time period draw a viewer up close to appreciate the lines — in fact, there are some magnifying lenses provided

“Nympheas (Water Lilies)” by Claude Monet, 1907 oil on canvas, is loaned by the Wadsworth Atheneum.

if you go “Passport to Paris” continues through Feb. 9 at the Denver Art Museum, 13th Avenue between Broadway and Bannock, with a special exhibition ticket that includes all three segments plus general museum admission. Tickets cost $12 members/$22 adult non-members, with discounts. See or call 720-865-5000. There will be extended holiday hours — again see the website.

for those who need assistance in appreciating the delicate works. For the first time, Impressionist paintings from the Frederic C. Hamilton collection are shown in what may be the most popular segment: “Nature as Muse.” Some works from the DAM collection are blended into this collection in the Gallagher Family Gallery on the first floor, which focuses on landscape. In a press tour, DAM

director Christoph Heinrich pointed out that oil paints became available in tubes in the mid-1800s, enabling artists to work outdoors in that medium, “en plein air.” Because many Colorado artists prefer to work outdoors, it is expected that they will especially relate to “Nature as Muse” with its sunlit orchards and gardens. Related programming is extensive throughout the exhibit time. See for scheduling. Of particular note is a collaboration with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra, which provided a soundtrack for the Court to Cafe exhibit in advance and featured French music in its Nov. 1-3 concerts. Every Saturday at 1 p.m., various symphonic ensembles will present a 45-minute performance at the museum, featuring French masterworks with commentary to place them in context. The first-floor studio space will become a drawing studio, with local artists demonstrating and teaching on weekends.

Colorado Rising, a benefit concert for flood relief featuring performances by Dave Matthews, The Fray, Big Head Todd and The Monsters, Wesley Schultz, Jeremiah Fraites and Neyla Pekarek of The Lumineers, Devotchka and Nathaniel Rateliff, raised $650,000 on Oct. 27 at the 1stBank Center in Broomfield. And from what I was told through emails and Facebook posts, the evening of unprecedented entertainment from Colorado musicians was a smash hit. The money raised will go to www., the United Ways of Colorado Flood Recovery Fund. “It’s no surprise that the entire music community from musicians to fans stepped up in a time of need for Colorado,” said Chuck Morris, president and CEO of concert organizer AEG Live Rocky Mountains. “Thank you all.”

Trivia at Inverness

WorldDenver, a nonprofit community organization dedicated to advancing an understanding of global affairs and cultures, is hosting its first Global Cup Challenge trivia fundraiser from 6 to 10 p.m. Nov. 15 at the Inverness Hotel and Conference Center in Arapahoe County. The evening, with beverages sponsored by Molson Coors Brewing Co., will begin with a pub-food-themed buffet dinner following by an international trivia competition. Teams of five will compete in five rounds of questions based on current affairs, geography, businesses and organizations as well as globally minded professionals testing their knowledge to win donated prizes and a year of bragging rights. Celebrity quiz masters include: Kay Landen and Joanne Posner-Mayer (event co-chairs), Carolyn Richards, Joe Megyesy, Katie Evans, Alice Anneberg, Laurie Zeller, Kim Savit, Beverley Simpson and Selena Dunham. Greg Dobbs and Anna Alejo will serve as celebrity quiz masters for the Challenge. Funds raised will support WorldDenver’s programs: Denver World Affairs Council, Young Professionals, International Visitor Leadership Program, Home Hospitality, GlobaLiteracy and WorldDenver Talks.

Greensky Bluegrass comes to Gothic Jam favorites set for two-night run

Two nighTs aT The goThic

By Ryan Boldrey

rboldrey@ No strangers to the Colorado music scene, Michigan-born jamgrass band Greensky Bluegrass — which opened at Red Rocks for Galactic and Railroad Earth this summer — will grace The Gothic Theatre stage for the first time this coming weekend. The hard-touring quintet will be headlining the Englewood theatre Nov. 15 and 16, with fellow bluegrass band Fruition supporting both nights. The band, which started as a trio playing open mic nights in Kalamazoo, Mich., in 2000, added standup bassist Mike Devol in 2004 and dobro-player extraordinaire Anders Beck in 2007. Playing close to 175 gigs a year, they’ve become a popular headliner at medium-sized clubs across the country, while climbing closer to the headlining slots at festivals with each passing summer. Calling bluegrass “a jumpingoff point for the band,” no two shows are ever the same for the hard-rocking group, which boasts close to 200 songs in its live repertoire. When the band leaves its own catalog behind, which they do four or five times per show, no one ever knows what they are going to hear. Odds are it won’t be

Who: Greensky Bluegrass with special guest Fruition When: 9 p.m. Nov. 15 and 16, doors at 8 p.m. both nights Where: The Gothic Theatre, 3263 S. Broadway, Englewood Tickets: $20 in advance, $25 day of show, $30 for two-day passes in advance Information: www.GreenskyBluegrass. com or

Mike Bont, of Greensky Bluegrass, shreds on the banjo Oct. 24 during the band’s recent gig at the Fox Theatre in Boulder. The Michigan-based band, which sold out the Fox, is playing Englewood’s Gothic Theatre Nov. 15 and 16. Photos by Ryan Boldrey your traditional bluegrass cover though. At their recent soldout, two-night run in Boulder, Greensky covered everything from Bruce Springsteen to String Cheese Incident, Radiohead, Paul Simon, Bob Marley and the Grateful Dead. “We’re all music heads, and love writing, but we also love other people’s music as well,” Beck said. “I think if there weren’t such

strong songwriters in the band, playing covers would feel a little cheaper on some level. But I think it allows us to play unique covers in the set and not let it be the highlight per se. At some level we are just looking for the common denominator with the fans.” And while the Greensky cover selection can kick the energy level of a crowd into high gear, it is the originals, mostly penned by man-

dolin player and lead vocalist Paul Hoffman or guitar player Dave Bruzza, that send the crowd into a frenzy. The band’s recent album, “Handguns,” helped to launch the band’s popularity to the next level, and the decision to give half of it away for free on the Greensky website, SoundCloud and through social media didn’t hurt anything either.

“We just really wanted to get it out there,” Beck said. “We aren’t a household name in most households, but we figured that if you can turn your friends onto liking Greensky Bluegrass by saying, ‘Hey, check it out, it’s free,’ you’ll want to hear more.” Greensky will release its fifth studio album, “If Sorrows Swim,” in February, highlighted by new cuts, “Windshield,” “In Control,” “Worried about the Weather,” and “Leap Year,” all cuts they are already playing on the road. For more information or to purchase tickets, please visit or Singleday tickets are $20 in advance, $25 day of show and two-day passes are $30 in advance. Showtime is 9 p.m. Nov. 15 and 16 at The Gothic Theatre, 3263 S. Broadway in Englewood.

Letterpress museum taking shape Much work to be done on old Englewood Depot By Sonya Ellingboe “Celebrate the Englewood Depot,” says a poster designed by Tom Parson, who has bought the old Englewood Santa Fe Depot from the city. The depot now sits empty on Dartmouth Avenue. Parson’s plan is to keep the historic facade intact, as a designated historic landmark, and create a “living museum” dedicated to letterpress typography, art and poetry, with a working print shop, which will also be a teaching facility and hopefully, a community meeting place. The poster uses 11 different typestyles from Parson’s extensive collection: Egyptian Clarendon Ornamented, Samoa, Gothic Concave Tuscan Condensed, Racine, Skeleton Antique, Latin Expanded, Bradley Italic, Gothic, P.T. Barnum, Mowry Antique and Palantino Italic. He printed it at his business, Now It’s Up to You, at his home in Denver, where he has about a dozen historic printing presses, about 2,500 fonts of metal type and hundreds of fonts of wooden type and thousands of antique printer’s cuts, ornaments and borders, which will go to the museum. For a period, he attended auctions every weekend, he said. He got interested in printing through a study of poetry, which is sometimes printed on the old presses in limited editions. His large library of poetry and typographic history will also have a place in the museum.

His wife, Patti Parson, is managing producer for the PBS NewsHour, with responsibility for budgets and production staff news coverage, writing foundation grants that have secured millions, according to the couple’s proposal to the City of Englewood, presented Feb. 28. An open house to benefit the project was held on Oct. 26 at Ray Tomasso’s studio in Englewood, which houses many more antique printing presses, including a Washington Press, circa 1891, where depot volunteer Wilson Thomas was printing souvenir posters, one at a time. The organizers were selling subscriptions to a folio of letterpress prints contributed by artists around the world — to be delivered in the spring of 2014 — for donations starting at $150. Tom Parson said he and his wife are in the middle of setting a schedule for renovation of the interior, which involves bringing it up to ADA standards, adding heat, electricity, plumbing, handicap-accessible bathrooms … and an east wall in the basement. They are also in the middle of setting up a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation, which will ease the process of getting donations. They have sufficient funds to renovate the old building, which will have a preservation easement on the facade, per state historical society standards. His start-up mailing list of 90 includes young art student/interns who have learned to make plastic printing plates with a computer, using the old typestyles; the guild of book workers and individual printing aficionados such as Wilson Thomas, who is also a teacher and musician who recently

Santa Claus Shop taking donations By Sonya Ellingboe Since 1959, faces have changed, but the good will of a dedicated group of volunteers has kept the Arapahoe Santa Claus Shop operating and growing. Locations are now open for donations, accepted until Dec. 1. And, the call is out for volunteers to help clean and repair toys and get the shop ready, as well as operate it when parents come to get toys for kids who might not otherwise have a gift at Christmas. Volunteers need to register in advance by email, so they don’t have too many at any one time — or too few. (Space is limited.) Usually, it involves about 400 total, board chairman Shirley Nixon said, praising the generous community, which keeps the shop going year after year for needy children. Nixon said that in 2012, they had 2,699 names referred by schools, churches and caseworkers and served 2,400 whose parents appeared to shop at the shop site on South Datura Street. (Dec. 12 and 13 this year.) About 20 percent drop off each year, she observes. Toys are given to children in Littleton, Englewood and Sheridan schools only. The names of children up to age 12 are referred by schools, churches, agencies and caseworkers and parents are given a 100-point card for each child. (“We can’t accept selfreferrals,” Nixon said.) The shop has a list of names at the door. Notices were sent to referring agencies on Oct. 18 and each generates its own list of families and numbers of children. Cards are distributed to parents or caretakers about a week before the shop opens.

moved to Denver. There are a number of interested women also, involved with Etsy and the craft movement. He hopes to cooperate with city organizations and others to provide public access. The city’s community gardens are next to his property and he hopes the gardeners may want to meet at the museum on occasion, for example. A membership structure will be established in the future. “The biggest problem is the building itself,” which needs substantial work, Par-

The shop is divided into departments, with a volunteer head of each. Some, such as those interested in dolls or bicycles, work through the year, cleaning and repairing and buying items they find at sales. Each item has points assigned. A Spanish-speaking volunteer is on hand for shopping days. New and gently used complete toys may be dropped off through Dec. 11 at numerous sites listed at (Not accepted: VHS videos, guns of any kind, swords, broken or chipped toys, fast food toys, candles, clothes, puzzles over 100 pieces, adult makeup and perfume, adult books.) Cash donations are always welcome. Collection locations include: Littleton’s Town Hall Arts Center, Littleton and Englewood fire stations, Bradford Auto Body, Colorado Center for the Blind, Buck Recreation Center, Dr. Darlyn Loper DDS, Adventures in Dance, Littleton Woodlawn Floral, Broadway Estates Conoco, Downtown Dinners, Van Wyk Chiropractic Center, Littleton Family YMCA, Pro Auto Care, ACC Fitness Center, Christopher and Banks/Aspen Grove, Sheridan city offices. (All addresses online.) The organization, which gives about 50 bikes each year, was aided in 2013 by Eagle Scout Jack Eickelson, who collected 30 bikes and delivered them to Project ReCycle in Castle Rock, where he has worked on repair with the shop’s bicycle specialist, Steve Busey. The organization will provide the Santa Claus Shop with 30 bikes for children when it opens. “We keep adding toys to the tables throughout the shop’s open time,” Nixon says. She regrets not getting to see the kids on Christmas. For information on volunteering for or donating to the Arapahoe Santa Claus Shop, see: Advance registration is important.

closed in 2011, has found new digs inside the Las Margaritas space at 1035 E. 17th Ave. in Uptown. Las Margaritas will close after 19 years at that location. The new Argyll space, renamed Argyll Whisky Beer, will undergo a remodel and expansion of the kitchen and bar area. The bar menu will include the largest whisky library in Colorado, according to Eater. Executive chef will be John Broening, who runs the kitchen at Thompson’s Le Grand Bistro.

Colorado eateries among best

More Denver and Boulder eateries are taking their rightful place alongside their bigger-city brethren on national “best” lists. Case in point: Here comes Travel + Leisure magazine’s 30 Best Italian Restaurants in the U.S., which included Frasca Food and Wine in Boulder on the lauded list. Said T+L: “Boulder isn’t the first place you’d look for one of America’s best Italian restaurants, but it certainly shouldn’t be last. The philosophy of master sommelier Bobby Stuckey and chef Lachlan Mackinnon-Patterson’s Italian restaurant in the shadow of the Rockies is based on the

son said. Architect friends are working on design solutions, which will include a lift for the handicapped from the main floor to basement, where the print shop will be established. Watch for progress on the Mission Style depot. Englewood’s managers and departments have been “really great and helpful,” Parson said, including building, zoning, fire, etc. For information: englewooddepot@, or Parson can be reached at 720-480-5358.

neighborhood restaurants in the subalpine region of northeast Italy — informal gathering places inspired by the cuisine and culture of Friuli.” The same story listed the best sushi and best vegetarian restaurants in the U.S., with Sushi Sasa in Denver and Leaf Vegetarian Restaurant in Boulder as the Colorado winners.

Boulder’s best biscuits

Not to be outdone by Travel + Leisure, Food and Wine magazine released its “best biscuits in the U.S.” list, and included Dot’s Diner in Boulder in the mix. Food and Wine said, “This 30-year-old diner is a Boulder mainstay (popular with both tourists and hippies) and is known for its tender buttermilk biscuits, made in regular and gluten-free versions. Regulars swear by the A.M. sandwich: a warm biscuit filled with a scrambled egg, melted cheddar, and a choice of ham, avocado or vegetarian sausage.” Penny Parker’s “Mile High Life” column gives insights into the best events, restaurants, businesses, parties and people throughout the metro area.

These authors write in clear descriptive terms about the lands the Sioux controlled at one time — said to be about 20 percent of the contiguous United States, shown on a map that extends from Iowa to Idaho and north into Montana. The Bozeman Trail, a main route for westward gold seekers and other settlers, ran through it. The writers also are skilled in describing the total philosophical disconnect between whites and Indians — not new information certainly, but particularly well stated.


By Sonya Ellingboe When co-author Bob Drury appears in Denver on Nov. 14, he should attract many local history buffs who focus on the chaotic 19th-century Western American Indian Wars. He and fellow writer Tom Clavin have just published their account of the Ogalala Sioux chief Red Cloud — described as “the only Plains Indian to defeat the United States Army in a war, forcing the American government to sue for peace in a conflict named for him.” The book is titled “The Heart of Everything That Is,” which is a translation for the Native American “Paha Sapa,” the sacred Black Hills area in what is now South Dakota. More specifically, the mystical “breathing” Wind Cave of the Black Hills is thought to be where the ancient gods delivered the

An autobiography by Red Cloud, dictated to a longtime friend, white trapper Sam Deon, was found, which offered new material. The extensive bibliography cites the many original sources the authors found, such as writings by the commander of Fort Phil Kearny, Col. Henry B. Carrington. These lend color throughout the book, including domestic details from women and grisly accounts of slaughter. On Dec. 21, a combative Capt. William J. Fetterman, sent out from the fort to protect a wood gathering train — and firmly instructed not to chase lurking Indians over the ridge — gave in to visions of glory and chased Indian scouts who had been teasing. (A final insult was when an insolent Crazy Horse mooned him and his troops, according to Drury and Clavin.) He led his limited number of about 80 Bluecoats into an ambush by about 2,000 waiting warriors, resulting in what is now called the Fetterman Massacre, in which all the members of the Fetterman party were killed.

Englewood Camera Club goes old-school Archaic techniques are this month’s topic By Sonya Ellingboe The Englewood Camera Club continues its successful presentations by professional photographers with a special niche. On Nov. 12, Quinn Jacobson will speak about his work in historic photographic process, specifically the wet Collodion

process (1891), which he used in three special projects. Jacobson, who also works in daguerrotypy (1839) and Calotypy (1839), will present comments on his techniques and perspectives on his work. Following military service that included work as a combat photographer (19821988), he attended college, including an MFA in photography from Goddard College in Vermont. His first project was “Portraits from Madison Avenue” (2003-2006), which cen-

tered on people and places in the margins of society. Quinn refers to his “tripod of concepts: memory, identity and difference.” He next lived in Germany, where he attempted, as an American Jew, to come to terms with the past, recording portraits, landscapes and significant locations, which he exhibited in Paris in 2010. His “The American West Portraits,” made in Denver, was also exhibited in Paris (2012) and he is working on a new project: “Ghost Dance: American Massa-

cre Sites.” His website is He has traveled in Europe, “evangelizing and teaching the Collodion process” and has published four books. The longstanding Englewood Camera Club welcomes guests and prospective members. It meets on the second Tuesday of the month at Lutheran Church of the Holy Spirit, 6400 S.

ARIES (Mar 21 to Apr 19) You enjoy the attention early in the week, but it might be a good idea to opt for some privacy by week’s end so that you can have more time to consider an upcoming decision. TAURUS (Apr 20 to May 20) You unearthed some surprising facts. Now you need to consider how to use them to your advantage. Meanwhile, it might be best to keep what you’ve learned secret for now. GEMINI (May 21 to Jun 20) A comment by a colleague piques your curiosity to know more. Best advice: You’ll find people more likely to offer information if you’re discreet when making your inquiries. CANCER (Jun 21 to Jul 22) Your energy levels begin to rise by midweek. This allows you to catch up with your heavy workload and still have plenty of get-up-and-go to go out on the town this weekend. LEO (Jul 23 to Aug 22) You’re probably roaring your head off about a perceived slight from a longtime critic. Ignore it. That person might just be trying to goad you into doing something you might later regret. VIRGO (Aug 23 to Sept 22) The early part of the week is open to spontaneity. Then it’s time to settle into your usual routine to get all your tasks done. A personal situation could require more attention from you. LIBRA (Sept 23 to Oct 22) A meeting of the minds on a workplace project might well develop into something more personal for Libras looking for romance. Aspects are also favorable for platonic relationships. SCORPIO (Oct 23 to Nov 21) A more-positive mood might be difficult to assume in light of a recent problem involving the health of someone special. But by week’s end, your emotional barometer should start to rise. SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 to Dec 21) Look for a changed attitude from a former adversary once he or she realizes you have your colleagues’ full support. Now you can refocus your energies on that workplace project. CAPRICORN (Dec 22 to Jan 19) This time, a difference of opinion might not be resolved in your favor. But be patient. It ultimately could all work out to your advantage, as new information begins to develop. AQUARIUS (Jan 20 to Feb 18) A tug of war develops between the artistic Aquarian’s creative aspect and his or her practical side. Best advice: Prioritize your schedule so you can give appropriate time to both. PISCES (Feb 19 to Mar 20) You could be entering a career phase awash with job-related demands. But avoid being swamped by the overflow and, instead, keep treading water as you deal with demands one by one. BORN THIS WEEK: You are an exceptionally loyal person, and you’re respected for your ability to keep the secrets entrusted to you. © 2013 King Features Synd., Inc.

Graffiti gives birth to art concept Aaron’s work shown in Englewood


By Sonya Ellingboe “In ‘Urban Scrawl,’ I sought to uncover a new form of self-expression, a language that found its roots in graffiti but became something else entirely,” says Patricia Aaron’s artist statement for an exhibit at Museum Outdoor Arts. “I layered encaustic and street-artist ink, carving and splattering the surfaces of my canvases to juxtapose thriving cities and broken landscapes, spare beginnings and elaborate ends. The result was a vibrant montage of textures, strokes and colors — an abstract reflection of the chaotic and dynamic scenes that were the impetus behind this work.” She talks of recent visits to Cape Town, South Africa, and New York City, where she was constantly drawn to the ever-present graffiti — an underlying presence in this collection of paintings. Aaron’s ideas are colorfully illustrated with a collection of new works included in a joint exhibit, “Urban Abstract — Rural Grid,” with Denver ceramic artist Chandler Romeo at the Museum Outdoor Arts in Englewood, which runs through March 8, 2014. She said, during a visit to her home studio in Greenwood Village, that she and Romeo had their art placed together in an exhibit last year at the Republic Building in Denver. They decided it was a good fit and pitched the idea of a joint exhibit to Cynthia Madden Leitner, the MOA director, who curated the Republic Building show.

Castle Rock

If you go: “Urban Abstract — Rural Grid” is at the Museum Outdoor Arts in the Englewood Civic Center, second floor, 1000 Englewood Parkway. Hours: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Thursdays; 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Fridays; 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays. 303-806-0444. Admission is free.

MOA’s theme for the year is “abstract,” which works for Aaron’s colorful two-dimensional works and Romeo’s sculptural clay compositions. Aaron explained her encaustic process to studio visitors, starting with a onepound block of beeswax: She melts eight pounds at a time in a crock pot, adding a pound of Damar crystals, the material Damar varnish is made from. Clear yellow, it has bits of insects and debris in it. After two to three hours of cooking in the crockpot, she strains the liquid medium through polyester and loads it into a muffin pan (large), storing the resulting cakes until needed. “I’m always making these,” she said. Next step is to melt a cake of medium and add pigment in a container set on her studio hotbox. She keeps an assortment of colors ready to work with, discarding them if they grow muddy. With inexpensive bristle brushes, she strokes the material onto a board backing: wood or Masonite panel. For this show, she used both, including some circular panels built at the MOA during an early fall residency from reclaimed barn wood. In addition, there is a series of 21 wheels, “Urban Legends,” poured in molds during her MOA residency and mounted in groups of three. When the artist brushes the melted wax

on the board, it sets up immediately and she uses a torch to fuse it with the layers beneath it. Or, she may stroke on layers of ink, which will blend with the wax when fused. She may also carve and scrape the surface with a ceramic tool, adding texture to the work. The resulting pieces, each distinctively different, will look alive, almost in motion to a viewer who can discover patterns in the multiple layers of intense color and black ink accents. Aaron also makes encaustic monoprints by painting on the hotbox surface and laying a piece of paper on it and rubbing with


a brayer. “I love mark making,” she says happily. Aaron, who earned an MFA from the University of Denver in 1998, has taught and exhibited widely and held several artist residencies. She and her husband have three grown daughters. She is represented by Space Gallery in Denver, Water Street Gallery in Douglas, Mich., and William and Joseph Gallery on Santa Fe’s Canyon Road. Also showing at the MOA: Tyler Wayne McCall’s “Lightworks,” in the Light Box Gallery and a custom soundscape by Immersive Studios in the MOA Sound Gallery, where one sits, surrounded by sound — relaxing.

Pirates get win in season finale Englewood ends football schedule by beating Skyview By Tom Munds Englewood rewarded its fans by scoring 18 points in the final 5:59 of the game to close out the football season Nov. 2 on the road with a 24-13 win over Skyview. “We got a much-needed victory today. It broke our losing streak and helped us end the season on a high note with a win,” Pirates coach Jay Graves said after the game. “This is the fourth year for the seniors who were freshman when I started coaching. Those young men helped establish a foundation for our program. We went to the playoff their freshman year, last year we won two games and this year we have four wins, so we are headed in the right direction.” The Nov. 2 game didn’t get off to a good start for the Pirates as, on their first possession, Skyview turned a screen pass into a 36-yard touchdown play. They booted the extra point and led 7-0 with 10:59 left in the first quarter. Englewood twice threatened but came away with no points, so Skyview’s 7-0 lead held up through the first half. The Pirates finally got on the scoreboard with 7:59 left in the third quarter thanks to a broken play. The snap from center was over the head of Englewood quarterback Isiah Mestas but he scooped up the ball, avoided a couple defenders, then threw on the run to Chris Gutierrez, who outran defenders to complete the 54-yard scoring play. The extra point failed, so Skyview led 7-6 going into the final quarter. There was 5:59 left on the clock when Gutierrez picked off a wayward Wolverine pass and raced into the end zone. The TD was nullified by a penalty, but

Englewood’s Nick Bersagel (8) heads up field in the Nov. 2 game against Skyview. Bersagel scored a touchdown later in the game to help the Pirates win the final game of the year, 24-13. Englewood retained possession of the ball. Englewood had a first and 20 on its own 46-yard line when Mestas pitched the ball to Nick Bersagel, who ran it in for the touchdown. The extra-point kick was blocked, but the score gave the Pirates their first lead at 12-7. The lead was fleeting as, following the kickoff, the Skyview quarterback escaped being sacked and ran 61 yards for a touchdown. The two-point conversion try failed, so with 5:25 remaining in the game, Skyview led 12-7. Englewood responded quickly as the Pirates took the kickoff and put to-

gether an 11-play, 58-yard drive. The drive was capped with a one-yard run by Tyler Ceasar for the touchdown. The extra-point try failed so Englewood was ahead 18-13. With 1:07 left on the clock, Skyview got the ball back and was throwing passes on almost every play. One pass was completed, the receiver was hit hard by Pirate defenders and the ball popped out. Englewood’s Alex Reed scooped up the loose ball and sealed the win by taking it to the end zone. The extra point failed and time ran out, giving Englewood the 24-13 win. Bersagel has been the rushing lead-

er for the Pirates this season and has gained more than 1,000 yards carrying the football and has scored 12 touchdowns. “The first half wasn’t very good for me or for the team. We weren’t blocking well, so we couldn’t move the ball. I didn’t do well either and I fumbled once,” Bersagel said after the game. “We made adjustments at halftime and it really made a difference. The blockers created the seams up front so I could get into the second level of the defense.” He smiled as he talked about his touchdown. “It was a play to go wide. When I got the pitchout from the quarterback, the guys sealed the outside and I was able to follow my blocking and turn up the field,” he said. “I got past the line of scrimmage, I saw a lot of green in front of me. I kept thinking about not getting tackled and making it to the end zone. Crossing that goal line felt great.” Graves agreed the difference in the game was the halftime adjustments. “We made a couple of lineup changes, such as adjusting some blocking schemes and moving Matt Peters into the line to help us get the blocking up front so we could move the ball,” the coach said. “The adjustments worked and we were able to get a win for our guys. It’s very important for our seniors so they have the memory of winning the last game of their final season of Pirate football.” He said the Pirates have a number of seniors graduating in June and they will be missed. “Fortunately, we do have a solid foundation for next season,” Graves added. “We have a small roster, so a lot of our kids saw a lot of varsity playing time and that will help us in 2014. Also, our JV team only lost one game, so we have good kids coming back to help us be a stronger, more competitive football team next year.”

Creek bests Lakewood in playoffs Bruins top Tigers in first round of 5A football tourney By Tom Munds Lakewood battled hard all game but Cherry Creek scored first and often, giving the home crowd a lot to cheer about as the Bruins won the Nov. 1 Class 5A state playoff game 5212 at the Stutler Bowl. “Despite the score, this was a hardfought game,” Bruins coach Dave Logan said after the game. “It was emotional because there are a lot of familiar faces on that other sideline. We had a tough week of preparation as we faced friends and kids we had coached before. But we are proud to get a first-round playoff win and move on to the next round against Overland.” Overland comes in with a 6-4 record. The Trailblazers mount a balanced attack, averaging 193.4 yards a game passing and 184.2 yards per game rushing. Statistics show Austin Conway leads the team’s attack. He has completed 129 of 189 passes for 1,847 yards and has carried the ball 145 times for 1,139 yards. Conway spreads the ball around as he has linked up with 11 different receivers. This season, the Bruins average 154.7 yards passing and 201 yards rushing per game. Milo Hall is the rushing leader with 134 carries for 1,226 yards and 12 touchdowns. Quarterback Cameron Brucker has completed 98 of 148 passes for 1,321 yards. Cherry Creek will face league opponent in Overland in the second round of the 5A state playoffs at 7 p.m. Nov. 8 at the Stutler Bowl. In the first-round playoff game Nov. 1, the Bruins kicked off to Lakewood and the Tigers mounted a solid attack but were unable to score. The Bruins took over the football on their own 21yard line. A mix of run and pass moved the ball and Nathan Starks took it into the end zone for a touchdown. Henry Lyon booted the extra point as Cherry Creek took the lead for good. Late in the first quarter, Aeneas

Cherry Creek’s Javier Craft tackles Lakewood’s Connor Stone during the Nov. 1 state playoff game. Robertson intercepted a Tiger pass and returned it for a touchdown and Lyon added the extra point to make the score 14-0. Lakewood didn’t quit, although the Bruins scored a pair of second-quarter touchdowns and a field goal. But, each time the Tigers started moving the ball, a penalty or turnover derailed the effort, so Cherry Creek led 31-0. However, in the third quarter, Lakewood running back Sean Pinson’s long run took the ball deep in Cherry Creek territory and Pinson took a pitchout on an option play and put the Tigers on the scoreboard. The extra-point try failed. Still looking to close the scoring gap, the Tigers successfully executed an on-side kick to take possession on the Bruins’ 42-yard line. Lakewood mixed the pass and the run to move the ball and quarterback Cameron Nicholls ran a two-yard keeper into the end zone for a touchdown. The

two-point try failed but the effort did cut the score to 38-12. The Bruins added two more touchdowns and won the game, 52-12. Coach Logan said the game plan coming in was to continue to mount a balanced attack. “To make a balanced attack work you have to run the football. We did run the ball but we have a young, small offensive line, so we are still are a work in progress in that area,” he said. “Defensively, we didn’t tackle as well as we should have but we should that give much of the credit for that to the caliber of the Lakewood players running the football.” Cherry Creek rushed the ball for 255 yards. Milo Hall was the rushing leader with 11 carries for 108 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Teammate Nathan Starks carried the ball seven times for 106 yards and two touchdowns, plus he caught a 27-yard pass for a touchdown.

Cherry Creek fifth at state gymnastics Overland takes team championship By Scott Stocker

Special to Colorado Community Media Cherry Creek’s Sela Buted wished she could have done a bit better in the Class 5A state gymnastics meet at Thornton High School on Nov. 1-2. But when an individual comes away with a gold medal in at least one event, there are certainly smiles. Buted scored a solid 9.775 to win gold on the balance beam, just edging Broomfield’s Sarah Holbrook, who scored 9.725. Yet, she had hoped that her team could have done a lot better as well. Overland just nipped Broomfield for the team championship with a score of 187.95 to Broomfield’s 187.5. Cherry Creek, coached by Melissa Holmberg, had to settle for fifth in the team standings, scoring 182.575. Buted tied for second on floor with

Holbrook, scoring 9.65, but the tiebreaker went to her opponent, thus taking home the bronze medal instead. She did not qualify for the finals in either the uneven bars or vault. The floor was won by Overland’s Devin Bundas (9.675). “This whole season we’ve worked hard and today we had one of our best meets of the season,” Buted said. “Thankfully, it comes at state. We did the best with what we have right now. We pushed hard and I’m so proud of our team. “I think it ended well,” Buted said. “I’m a senior and this is my last meet and I’m happy. I wish I could have done a little better as I was very nervous. But a championship? That’s certainly a good way to finish.” Cherry Creek’s Rachel Wong also came through with a pretty solid performance for the Bruins. She finished third on the bars (9.55) and had also qualified for the finals on floor. Bundas, by the way, came away with her second gold medal in floor, scoring 9.675, while the bars title went to Arvada West’s Katlin Kerl (9.85). “This is the first year that I’ve done high

school gymnastics, as I’ve always been in club,” said Wong, a junior. “The key was to do well, and bars have been my best this year. I really liked the high school atmosphere and the team. This was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made when it comes to gymnastics.” Holmberg had also hoped for higher results from all those on the team. Yet, to finish as the Bruins did with all their challenges this season brought a smile to her face. “I think it was a challenge all year,” Holmberg said. “We’ve had illness and injuries to overcome. We talked all season on how we could build upon one another and not just one girl. We came together, but it has been a rough go. Still, for what the girls have been able to accomplish under all our conditions has been good. We talked all season on how we could build on one another.” Alaina Bolton was the only other Cherry Creek gymnast to reach the finals. However, she had to settle for 15th on bars. And, it’s been an interesting season for Bolton,

a junior. “The key for me is that I had a good bar routine to get this far,” Bolton said. “(Friday) was the first day that I’ve vaulted all season. I had the broken foot and it’s been an effort to overcome. I’m just proud how we’ve all done. It has been difficult to overcome injuries, but the girls have been strong all year. “(Saturday) was a disappointment on bars,” Bolton said. “I fell, but got up and continued to do what I do to the end. I’ll be glad to come back next year. My good thoughts are with all my teammates.” Ponderosa finished 10th in the team competition with 173.225 points “The girls did better than we thought and it has just been great, just unexplainable as to how they’ve been able to react and exceed expectations,” Ponderosa coach Lisa Fischer said during the Nov. 1 competition. “This has been one of the most fun state meets and I just don’t know how we’ll finish. I’ve just been so excited for the girls. This is a very young team and this is such a valuable experience.”
