Council to review marijuana issue Discussion of industry ban scheduled for Dec. 2 By Tom Munds

tmunds@ourcoloradonews.com Englewood City Council members agreed that they need to talk about the appropriate action after residents voted against the city’s existing ban on the recreational marijuana industry. The unofficial results showed 3,862 residents, representing 51.8 percent of the votes cast, voted no on keeping the ban. There were 3,593 yes votes, or 48.2 per-

cent, in favor of keeping the ban. Council members discussed the issue at the Nov. 18 meeting. “There were 269 more no votes than there were yes votes,” Councilmember Joe Jefferson said. “We need to discuss this issue because I feel there is a clear indication many residents want the ban removed.” A check of the schedule resulted in the council agreeing to discuss the issue at the Dec. 2 study session. Study sessions begin at 6 p.m. and are held in the community room on the second floor of the Englewood Civic Center, 1000 Englewood Parkway. Since Dec. 2 is a regular meeting night, the study session must end in time

to start the council meeting at 7:30 p.m. in the council chambers. The Englewood City Council approved a prohibition on establishing any recreational marijuana industry-related operations in the city at the April 15 meeting. The action was in response to Colorado voters’ approval of Amendment 64 in 2012, which legalized adult possession of up to one ounce of marijuana for recreational use. In the April 15 discussion, then Mayor Pro Tem Jim Woodward pointed out that all but one precinct in Englewood voted heavily in favor of passage of Amendment 64.

The ban passed by a vote of 5-2, with Mayor Randy Penn and Councilmembers Jill Wilson, Bob McCaslin, Linda Olson and Rick Gillit supporting the ban. Woodward and Jefferson voted against the ban. Also at the April 15 meeting, the council approved placing an advisory question on whether or not to retain the ban on the November ballot. A “yes” vote would support retaining the ban. The first-reading vote on the ordinance to place the issue on the ballot was 4-3. Penn Woodward, Jefferson and Olson voted for the ballot issue while Gillit, McCaslin and Wilson voted against it.

Tree-lighting ceremony on tap Mayor will flip switch in event set for Dec. 2 By Tom Munds

tmunds@ourcoloradonews.com A crew finished assembling Englewood’s towering artificial holiday tree on Nov. 23, so when Mayor Randy Penn flips the switch at 5:30 p.m. Dec. 2, the 35-foottall lighted tree will become the centerpiece of the city holiday decorations. The Christmas tree is located at the east end of the Englewood Civic Center circular drive and is surrounded by a circle of trees decorated with strings of lights. Also, the globes of the streetlights headed east on Englewood Parkway are now red and all the evergreens around the civic center are draped with colored lights. The display will remain lit through the holidays.

On Nov. 23, quiet conversation accompanied the whir of the power drill near the Englewood Civic Center as representatives of K&M Enterprises as well as several family members and friends began assembling the city’ holiday tree. In one area, several members of the crew were assembling the five frame sections that will be stacked atop each other to create the 35-foot-tall tree. The parts for each frame section are connected and then clamps are bolted in place, creating a solid framework. When a frame was completed, it was set aside and other members of the team began attaching branches. Each branch already has its lights attached and the lights on each branch connect together so when the switch is thrown, the tree is illuminated. It takes about 30 branches to cover one Tree continues on Page 23

Despite the turbulent rollout of the national Obamacare website, Colorado’s version is going a bit smoother. “The Colorado website has had a few stumbling blocks, but it’s doing pretty well now,” said Sarah Thoemke, outreach coordinator for Doctors Care clinic in Littleton and a designated “health-care guide” for Connect for Health. Indeed, it fired right up for her demonstration at Arapahoe Community College Nov. 19. Explaining that it’s not necessary to create an account to browse the site, she plugged in her name and some made-up numbers to give an overview of the process. “It’s really pretty darned intuitive,” she said. Obamacare, officially known as the Affordable Care Act, means anyone without employer-sponsored health insurance or a private plan must obtain coverage or face a fine of $95 next year, with that amount going up each year thereafter. The ACA mandates free preventive care, lets kids stay on their parents’ policies until age 26, bans insurance companies from denying coverage to people with preexisting conditions and requires plans to include mental-health care and maternity services, among other things. That last one has been a sticking point for some, Thoemke acknowledges, and has caused some people to lose plans they liked because they didn’t cover all the bases. Adding the coverage increased expenses, argue some insurance carriers, so they canceled the plans altogether. “Some people are having an issue with having to pay for some of those things when they don’t need them,” said Thoemke. “It could get tweaked.” The U.S. Census reports about 98,000 people in Arapahoe County are uninsured. According to data compiled by the South Metro Health Alliance, nearly 50,000 of them will remain uninsured even after the Affordable Care Act is fully implemented. Undocumented residents are included in that figure, as are people who won’t be able to afford it even with tax subsidies and those who simply choose to pay the fine instead. But for those who do want insurance, www.connectforhealthco.com is a starting Obamacare continues on Page 23

Superintendent goes on dream trip Ewert spends two days on aircraft carrier By Tom Munds

tmunds@ourcoloradonews.com Brian Ewert, Englewood school superintendent, put district issues on hold for a couple days in order to take advantage of the Navy’s invitation to spend Nov. 12 and 13 on the aircraft carrier USS Ronald Regan. “Getting the opportunity to make this trip is like winning the lottery,” he said. “The Navy invites educators and business leaders to spend time on Navy ships as part of the program they call Distinguished Visitor Trips. This trip offer was made to the Colorado Department of Education officials. They couldn’t go and they suggested I be given the opportunity since they felt I would try anything once. “The local organizer called and, once we checked it out, I said yes as quickly as I could because I knew it would involve landing and taking off from a nuclear-powered aircraft carrier. It proved to be the trip of a lifetime.” Ewert flew to San Diego Nov. 11, spent the night in Navy quarters and, the next day was escorted to the Naval Air Station at North Island for the flight to the carrier that was taking part in maneuvers about 200 miles off the coast. “We were briefed for the flight and issued helmets and goggles before we took our seats facing the rear of the aircraft,” he said. “It was a bare-bones aircraft called a Greyhound. There were no windows in the plane and it was incredibly loud, which is why we wore helmets with ear protection.” He said when the time came, the pilot told them they were about to land on the carrier deck and to be prepared what basically was a controlled crash. “I wasn’t sure what to expect,” Ewert said. “Oh, we did hit the deck hard and the tail hook stopped us immediately, but I didn’t think it was all that bad.” The superintendent said the purpose of these trips is to introduce the public to the incredible high-tech positions and career paths in the Navy and to let them see firsthand that every job aboard the carrier is involved with science, technology, engineering and math. “We saw state-of-the-art technology in action and we saw the highly technical

Ewert and the visitors were flown on and off the ship for their two-day visit. Courtesy photos tasks being done in every section of the ship we visited, from the captain’s bridge to the dining hall,” he said. “It appears every job aboard that ship requires a high-level knowledge of math and technology, as well as at least an understanding of science and engineering fundamentals.”

adopting a similar focus. “Everyone aboard the carrier was constantly being monitored and evaluated,” Ewert said. “For example, there was a onestar admiral in charge and he was being evaluated by a two-star admiral on how he managed the carrier and the maneuvers.”

Savvy sailors

Benefit for companies

Ewert and the other 15 members of the group spent the next 26 hours on the carrier. He said they were escorted on visits to just about every section so they could view the vast array of skills needed for carrier operations. “I was amazed how technologically savvy these 18-, 19- and 20-year-olds were, who were well qualified to help operate a $4.5 billion dollar aircraft carrier,” he said. “Just about every sailor I talked to was working on a bachelor’s degree, realizing it might take longer than four years to complete the requirements. Also, everyone we met had excellent leadership ability and communication skills.” He said a Navy focus is that every sailor’s life centers around training, preparedness and professional development in order to become better at your job today than you were yesterday. He said everyone and every organization could learn and benefit from

Another purpose of the trip was to showcase the skills of the personnel who will soon be returning to civilian life. “The size of the military will soon be reduced, and the Navy stressed the fact all their people had high levels of technical training plus the high levels of communication skills. The also noted every man and woman adopts a dedicated work ethic so they will show up early and stay late to get the job done. All this is stressed as the Navy asks companies to take a look at veterans when hiring,” Ewert said. “The message also is, as the size of the military is being reduced, civilian companies can greatly benefit from giving these quality individuals a chance at a job when they leave the service.” One of Ewert’s final experiences was leaving the carrier as the aircraft was catapulted off the deck and into the sky. “I was excited about the takeoff,” he said. “We were facing the back of the air-

The engines are brought up to full speed, they yell duck and the catapult sent the aircraft off the end of the deck. You have your arms wrapped around your chest and leaning back as we were launched. The force of gravity pushed me toward the back of the aircraft and also forced the air out of me for a couple seconds. But it was quick and when the g-force stopped we hit open air and you feel a sense of weightlessness. It was amazing. It was Mr. Toad’s wild ride and I’d do it again in a second.” He said it was an experience he will never forget and there were lessons learned. “I learned science, technology, engineering and mathematics education must begin in kindergarten in order for our kids to be prepared for the future,” he said. “All kids won’t go that way, but all kids should have grounding in those fields. The other thing that made me pause is how prepared our military personnel are to meet any circumstances. This takes constant training, evaluation and monitoring, which we need to practice and teach too.” He said he has several connections with the Navy and with a professor from the University of Denver who was on the trip. His plans are to bring in guest speakers to stress the importance of STEM education as the students are preparing for the future.

A lengthy discussion about proposed changes to Englewood’s rules governing home-based businesses resulted in the city council putting the issue on hold in order to have further discussions about recommended new regulations. “We have raised a number of questions and issues about the proposal, so we should put action on the issue on hold in order to set a date for further discussion,” Mayor Randy Penn said at the Nov. 18 council meeting. All members of council agreed to table the proposal. They also agreed the issue will be on the agenda for the Dec. 6 study session. The proposal was developed when the council requested the community development department review the regulations governing home occupations. Chris Neubecker, a city planner, said one of the issues was the ban on all home occupations in R1A-zoned areas. R1A is the zoning for single-family homes on large lots. Areas zoned R1A are in the northeastern and southwestern corners of the city, plus part of a block north of Mansfield Avenue and west of Elati Street. “Many major businesses began in the

home or the garage,” Neubecker told the council. “We wanted to look at a way to allow home occupations in all residential areas, including R1A, that would have little or no impact on the neighborhood.” He said the Englewood Planning and Zoning Commission held a public hearing on the proposal and forwarded it to the council with recommendations that included prohibition of all home business signs in R1A. He also said the new proposal allows home occupations in structures adjacent to the home, such as garages. Councilmember Jill Wilson said she was not comfortable with several aspects of the proposal. She said she didn’t like the portion that allowed customers to come to the home because she felt it would create noise and traffic in the neighborhood. “I couldn’t vote to approve that,” she said. Several council members commented that people opted to live in areas zoned R1A because of the rules to keep R1A as pristine residential neighborhoods. Councilmember Rick Gillit said he felt the proposal wasn’t what the council intended. “I believe we sought to have rules changed to allow home offices in R1A,” he said. “This proposal allowing home occupations in R1A is different than allowing home offices, and I don’t think that was the intent of the council.”

City plans holiday parade, hopes for good weather Lineup will follow parkway from Acoma to Civic Center By Tom Munds

tmunds@ourcoloradonews.com Planners are working on the lineup and praying for good weather in preparation for the Dec. 7 Englewood Holiday Parade. The assembly point is Englewood Parkway and Acoma Street. The parade steps off at 10 a.m. and proceeds west along the parkway to the Englewood Civic Center. Santa is the finale for the parade. When the parade ends, the focus shifts to live entertainment as the Clayton Elementary School Choir will be the initial act, followed by the Englewood High School Choir. This is the fourth year the Greater Englewood Chamber of Commerce has organized and put on the parade. “I think we have a pretty good lineup this year,” said Colleen Mello, chamber director. “We have the antique fire truck, our elementary schools will be marching, and

we have some pageant winners taking part this year.” She said there is still room, and anyone who wants to take part in the event should call the chamber at 303-789-4473 for information. The Englewood Holiday Parade was started by Cinderella City merchants in the late 1960s to bring Santa to the mall and, when the merchants decided to no longer fund the parade, the city took it over. It was a pretty big event with a number of marching bands and floats. The parade continued for years, but in 2003 the city decided to no longer hold the parade because it was too expensive and there was not the private financial support to continue holding the event. Englewood businesswoman Rosemarie Cabral headed the 2010 effort to again hold the holiday parade. She got the support of some businesses and the Greater Englewood Chamber of Commerce to get it going. The effort was successful and this marks the fourth year for the reborn parade.

Food boxes prepared for Thanksgiving Inter-Faith readies for annual distribution By Tom Munds

tmunds@ourcoloradonews.com Like a well-oiled machine in high gear, volunteers packed about 650 boxes in preparation for the Nov. 23 Thanksgiving food box distribution. About 100 volunteers gathered at InterFaith’s headquarters at Floyd Avenue and Irving Street in Sheridan for the well-organized project to assemble the boxes. Each food box was packed with the items needed to cook a traditional Thanksgiving meal, as well as other food items providing three or four days of meals for a family. Many of the volunteers were from service clubs like the Denver South East Rotary, the Centennial Rotary and the Southglenn Sertoma Club. Companies like the First Commercial Bank in Englewood had volunteers at the event, as did a couple Girl Scout troops. Chuck Brown, a Douglas County resident, waited to be assigned a job. “I volunteered on my own because I wanted to help people have a nice Thanksgiving,” he said. “I had some bad years and relied on others for help. Things are better now, so I want to give back by helping others.” The volunteers were briefed and teams moved into place to begin the preparations so other volunteers could place the items in the boxes assembly-line style. While in one room, volunteers assembled the cardboard boxes donated by Cowboy Moving and Storage, in the main room tables were set up to hold the items that would go into the food boxes. Each station

was marked with the number of the item. Mandy Brauchler and Ella Wilson of Highlands Ranch Girl Scout Troop 3204 marked the boxes of pie crust mix. “This is my second year to help,” Mandy said. “I like being with my troop and I think it is nice that we can help people have a nice Thanksgiving.” Once all the supplies were set up, another group of volunteers picked up empty boxes and began to move down the line, placing the proper number of items in the box. Cindy Marlatt, of First Commercial Bank, said there were five volunteers from the Englewood business. “It is just our way to help others in our community,” she said as she put items in the food box. Farther down the line, Mary Ramos was filling her box. “A friend told me about Inter-Faith and what they do and I signed up to be a volunteer,” the Centennial resident said. “I am thankful for all I have and I just want to do what I can so others can properly celebrate Thanksgiving.” Sandra Blythe-Perry, Inter-Faith director, moved around the room to make sure thing were moving smoothly. “This is one of our big holiday events and it takes a lot of help to make it a success. We had a lot of organizations put on drives to collect food for the project and numerous organizations and individuals who donated cash so we can buy the supermarket gift certificates so each family can have a turkey or a ham,” she said. “Then the volunteers come tonight to assemble the boxes and we’ll have volunteers here Nov. 23 as about 550 needy families come to each pick up a food box and, at the same time, our volunteers will deliver 100 boxes to seniors.”

opinions / yours and ours

Information is not the public’s enemy This week’s release of a report summarizing the investigation into the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary offers a glimpse into the horror of what happened on Dec. 14, 2012. It, however, is not a complete accounting of what happened. The state police’s full report was not included and it is not known when that will be released. At the same time, media outlets are fighting for the release of 911 tapes — which generally are considered public record. Indeed, nearly a year later, the Newtown, Conn., tragedy is still marked by a measure of secrecy. We’re not going to argue what should and shouldn’t be released in the Sandy Hook investigation. Records in this case, in which a gunman killed 28 people, including 20 children, should be handled delicately. The victims’ families deserve that. What we will point out, though, is that

our view

the slow release of information — and the outright withholding of some records — is not limited to high-profile, horrific cases like Sandy Hook. It happens every day in Colorado, most likely throughout the nation. “Ongoing criminal investigation.” That’s the phrase routinely used to deny reporters and the public information about a case. The Colorado Open Records Act allows for this. Law enforcement agencies may deny the release of records when provid-

question of the week

What do you want for Thanksgiving dinner? Everyone loves Thanksgiving dinner, but most crave one dish more than the rest. Colorado Community Media went to Arapahoe Community College in Littleton to find out what people’s favorites are.

“The dressing. I make it from a recipe my mom used to have. She’s no longer here, so it’s special.” — Jean Oleson, Sheridan

“The sweet potatoes. It’s just a tradition for the women in my family to make this one recipe. I always ask my kids what the must-have is, and everybody always wants it.” — Wendi Fling, Castle Pines

“The turkey my boyfriend makes. He puts all kinds of stuff in it, like beer and oranges. I’m not sure how exactly he does it, but it tastes good.” — Irena Kaminska, Aurora

“My grandmother’s macaroni and cheese. Kraft says they have the cheesiest macaroni, but if you go to my grandmother’s house, hers will smack Kraft in the face.” — Floyd Lewis, Denver

I wrote a book … but I digress Dachshunds were bred to hunt badgers. Knowing dachshunds — I am on my third — this seems like a bad idea. My current roommate would have a problem, as I wrote, trying to get into a box of Wheat Thins. But so would I. I can’t open anything anymore, so I wrote a column about bad packaging. I have been writing Quiet Desperation since March 2012. We decided to compile some of the columns, I have written over 500, into a book. The title, “This is not a dachshund,” is an homage to Belgian artist René Magritte, and specifically to his painting “The Treachery of Images.” Beneath what is clearly a painting of a pipe are the words “This is not a pipe.” “Magritte became well known for a number of witty and thought-provoking images that fall under the umbrella of surrealism.” Magritte’s point was that while it is definitely a painting of a pipe, it is not in fact a pipe. Maybe you have seen his painting of an apple that fills an entire room. My favorite Magritte is “Clairvoyance (A SelfPortrait).” Magritte is shown painting a bird while looking at an egg. His paintings are like Steven Wright’s quotes. Deadpan punch lines that cleverly affect perceptions of reality. “I’m writing a book. I’ve got the page numbers done,” Wright said. My editor gives me a very long leash. I have written about “coffee babies,” my fear of bowling shirts, and hand talkers. I have also written about love, friendship, and aging. Almost anything can trigger a column.

ing the information would “be contrary to the public interest.” Generally, the “ongoing criminal investigation” phrase is invoked. Further explanation will sometimes yield that releasing the information could jeopardize the case against a suspect. Maybe it could put witnesses in danger. What often happens is that the local law enforcement agency gives out some initial nuggets of information — which may or may not include an arrest report or other official documents. After the agency finishes its investigation, the case moves on to the district attorney. Then, for a period of weeks, or months, or sometimes more than a year, no further details are released. Generally, you have to wait for trial to get anything near the full story. This process leaves more than just reporters unsatisfied. The American Civil Liberties Union joined with a local couple last week to sue the Town of Castle Rock,

Filling the gratitude bucket all year long Over the years I have shared Thanksgiving meals with family and friends, some in their homes and some in my own home. One of the traditions I enjoy the most is when everyone takes the time to go around the table and talk about what is that they are most thankful for. Each year it is so much fun to watch people as we get closer to that time of the meal where they will be asked to share what they are most grateful for, and for some they squirm a little while others can’t wait to take center stage. And then there are others who either have the same list every year or stick with a very simple declaration of appreciation for friends and family. Has the tradition lost its oomph? Do we do it out of ritualistic habit and just because mom or dad, grandma or grandpa have asked us to? Or maybe, just maybe we have actually spent time realizing and recognizing all that we appreciate, or should be so very grateful for in our lives. What if every day we were asked to share what it is that we are most grateful for? Would we squirm and would our palms get sweaty as we fidgeted and searched for a quality response? Could we possibly find ourselves just repeating the same things each time we are asked? The answer would probably be yes unless we are filling our gratitude bucket all the time. Instead of looking for all that is wrong today or has gone wrong in the past, we need to become acutely aware of the good things that surround us each and every day.

Englewood Herald I rarely write about Douglas County. Ryan Boldrey does a great job of covering local issues. I am much better with artificial eyelashes, non-sequiturs, and haggis. Most of the time there are obscure references, and some of the time I simply make things up. Now and then I have been more contemplative. I wrote one column about Asperger syndrome, and another one about a famous southwest Ohio murder. I was the lone witness. The murder occurred in 1963, just weeks before my junior year in high school, and just months before JFK was assassinated. The case went to trial in 2001. Learn the outcome in the book. Now see? This is something they do on the 10 o’clock news, and I hate it. “Amelia Earhart found living in Scottsdale. Story after the break.” I’ll tell you right now that the accused was found not guilty. The verdict was Ohio’s OJ. I believe in serial digressions. I think I get this from Groucho Marx and others, for whom wordplay is very important.

its town clerk and the police chief for refusal to release records related to an incident in February. The couple’s car was hit with a bullet, they say, after a police officer fired his gun at a burglary suspect. They say they want more answers about what happened before and during the shooting. Thing is, it’s an ongoing investigation. We won’t argue what should and shouldn’t be released in this case either. We don’t have enough information to do that. Surely there are some cases in which a successful prosecution and people’s safety depend on keeping things under wraps. But “ongoing investigation” has become a stock answer, and as such, we’ll say the spirit of the open records law is being violated on a regular basis in Colorado. All too often what’s contrary to the public interest is being left out in the dark.

It’s been said that gratitude is the healthiest of all human emotions. It’s kind of like the analogy of the glass being half full or half empty. When we view our gratitude bucket, is yours half full or half empty? Maybe you will read this column before Thanksgiving and will have time to prepare your response should you be asked for the list of things you are grateful for. And maybe you will not have had the opportunity to read this until after Thanksgiving, and that is OK too because now you can live each day in search of things you can appreciate and that will fill your gratitude bucket making every day of the year Thanksgiving Day. I really would love to hear about all that you are grateful for and what you truly appreciate at gotonorton@gmail.com and when we can recognize what we appreciate most, it will be a better than good week.

Englewood schools making big changes To Englewood stakeholders and community: It’s no secret that the success of our children determines the success of our community, our state, our country and our world. As community members, you have a stake in the success of our schools, which is why I would like to share with you the current state of Englewood School District and where the district is headed in the future. Three and a half years ago, the Englewood Board of Education provided me with the opportunity to take the lead in charting a course for Englewood Schools. At that time, the district had been categorized by the Colorado Department of Education as a “Turnaround” district, based on criteria and metrics outlined in the District Performance Framework, including student achievement and growth, academic gaps, and post-secondary and workforce readiness. Since this rating was considered unacceptable by CDE, the district had five years to show improvement to an acceptable level or face the possibility of losing accreditation and other potential statutory consequences. So, I gathered the Englewood staff, we made a commitment to each other, to this community, and to our students that we would improve, get off CDE’s fiveyear clock, and make significant changes to our system by improving programming, interventions, the use of data, and (most importantly) implementing a preK-12 research-based instructional model. We also agreed that we would be relentless about our work regardless of the complexity of the challenges we faced. We agreed that the students of Englewood are as bright as any in Colorado and they deserve the highest quality programming, coupled with high standards and expectations, and implemented with fidelity, intensity, and consistency. Our work was cut out for us, and it still is. But in the past three years, the staff at Englewood Schools and I have been working to honor our commitments to the students and community. We are pleased to announce that our classification is now

and to Groucho Marx” nearby whenever I write, along with Jon Winokur’s “The Portable Curmudgeon.” And, of course, Steve Martin’s “Pure Drivel.” I planned to major in journalism at UCLA. It turned out that I hadn’t done my homework: UCLA didn’t have an undergraduate journalism program. So I became an art major and that turned out to be exactly where I belonged. However, I have always had an affection for writing. Therefore, this column is very fulfilling.

that of “Accredited with Improvement,” which is considered an acceptable rating by CDE and has stopped the clock from ticking. We still have work to do. While this rating is considered “acceptable” it is not where we want to be. We have made many changes to the system and the results will follow, but we have more changes to make in the future. I’d like to share with you many of the improvements we have made in the past three and a half years and some that are currently underway. First and foremost, one of the most important changes we’ve made in Englewood is having all educators adopt a proven instructional model to aid students in learning and retaining information. The model is designed to increase student engagement by allowing students to think for themselves and to be accountable for their own learning, thus gradually releasing the responsibility of learning from that of the teacher to that of the student. Through this model, there is an expectation that students learn the required 21st-century skills of communication, collaboration, critical thinking and citizenship. Beyond instruction, we seek to engage students inside and outside the classroom and to give them the best access possible to educational tools. For example, all of our elementary school through middle school students have received an iPad to use in the classroom and to take home if their parents wish. The purpose of the iPad is to provide students access to a wide range of curriculum, interventions and a library of over 3,000 books, sorted by their reading level and content preferences. This

Right now, “This is not a dachshund” is available exclusively at and through the Tattered Cover bookstores. The process of taking something I have written under the influence of black (black!) coffee, through a proofreader, and into a file that was sent to the Espresso Book Machine at the Tattered Cover has been more fun than curmudgeons are allowed to have. Don’t tell anyone. Thanks for reading.

expands the opportunity for students to be engaged in learning beyond the sevenhour school day, and from any location they desire. For older students, we are revamping our post-secondary preparedness outcomes and focusing on the future of graduates of our high schools. New school construction allows us to make sure we have the spaces students need to facilitate learning that will help them be successful in college and in careers; such as new STEM labs, a new fabrication lab, a culinary arts/hospitality classroom, cosmetology and more. Along with enhanced programs, we also offer many options for high school students to help them succeed or get ahead, such as concurrent enrollment, advanced placement classes, and a student support center. Our high school graduation rates are evidence that we are engaging more and more of our secondary students. For the 2012/2013 school year, Englewood High School’s projected graduation rate (still being finalized with CDE) is 77.4 percent, which may exceed the state average for the first time since 2009. Our alternative high school—Colorado’s Finest Alternative High School — serves at-risk students, 82 percent of which are from out of district. Its four-year graduation rate is projected to be at 23 percent for 2012/2013, its five-year rate is at 41.5 percent, making it one of the highestperforming alternative high schools in the state. I am pleased with the academic progress our students have made so far. However, the progress will only continue if we keep moving forward with innovations that allow our students to have the best learning environment possible. One resource that we can never get enough of for our students and teachers is time. Some of our students come to our schools already behind their peers in learning, and these students need extra time to catch up. In other cases, it’s just better to be able to devote more time to a specific subject area to allow for more creativity,

insight and choice. For that reason, we will be partnering with Generation Schools Network to use creative scheduling that will allow up to 30 percent more learning time for students, smaller class sizes, and more planning and collaboration time for teachers. We also recognize that students who don’t feel safe or accepted at school often have trouble learning or succeeding and realizing their full potential. We have decided to bring the Challenge Day program to our schools to promote a more positive school culture, which will help students and teachers have a deeper understanding and empathy toward individual and unique differences, and therefore promote an enhanced learning environment and sustained academic success. Adding new programs, responding to individual students’ needs, incorporating technology, and ensuring the well-being of the whole student isn’t cheap. We know that we must invest funds into our priorities in order to bring them to fruition. However, we also know that being fiscally responsible is the only way to sustain our school district and to be good stewards of taxpayers’ money. We seek grants for programs whenever possible, and we also have fantastic partners that help fund programs, such as the Morgridge Family Foundation. I invite you to take a look at our finances on our website, at http://englewoodschools. net. Select Departments, then Business Services, then Financial Transparency. We are committed to being open and honest about the state of our finances at all times. Finally, I’d like to thank the entire staff of Englewood Schools for their hard work, dedication and commitment. Change is never easy, and as you can see, we’ve been doing a lot of it. I’d also like to thank the Englewood community for its support. As the schools thrive, so will the community, so please know that all of your support is helping enhance your neighborhood and your city. Brian Ewert is the superintendent of Englewood Public Schools.

Fans flock to reopened Steak ’n Shakes Eateries had been closed due to dispute By George Lurie

glurie@ourcoloradonews.com After being shuttered for months by a dispute between local franchisees and the company’s corporate headquarters, popular Steak ’n Shake restaurants in Centennial and Sheridan reopened this week, attracting large crowds with offers of free food and promises to donate 10 percent of first-week sales to area flood relief. “We invest in the communities we serve, and are pleased to support the local Red Cross chapter by giving back to those affected by the recent flooding,” said Jim Flaniken, senior vice president of marketing for the Indianapolis-based company. For Centennial residents Marc Behringer and Taylor Wilsey, the best news of all: The restaurant chain was offering the first 100 customers to dine at the Centennial and Sheridan locations on Nov. 25 free Steak ’n Shake for a year. On reopening day, Behringer and Wilsey were the first two people standing in a long line that snaked around the Centennial restaurant and across the adjacent parking lot. The couple had claimed the pole position by showing up the previous evening at 11 p.m. and camping outside the front door in blustery, subfreezing temperatures. “It was a little chilly,” Behringer admitted. “But we had fun. Now we’ll be able to eat free Steak ’n Shake for the next year.” Wilsey agreed. “I got hooked on their food in Florida. I used to go to Steak ’n Shake every time I visited my grandmother there,” she said. Steak ’n Shake corporate will manage and operate the Centennial and Sheridan locations.

Several hundred people lined up outside the Centennial Steak ‘n Shake restaurant on a wet, blustery morning Nov. 25. The crowd was hoping to take advantage of the company’s offer of “free Steak ‘n Shake for a year” to the first 100 customers. Photo by George Lurie Both restaurants will be open 24 hours a day. The Centennial restaurant is located at 8271 S. Quebec Street. The Sheridan restaurant is located at 3502 River Point Parkway. In recent weeks, the company has hired more than 140 new employees. In business since 1934, Steak ’n Shake operates more than 500 restaurants around the country, with many located in the South and Midwest. The Centennial and Sheridan restaurants have been in the headlines in recent

months, closed since late summer by a tangle of lawsuits filed after the franchise owner ignored a corporate directive and charged higher prices for certain menu items. The metro-area’s only two Steak ’n Shake franchises had been owned by Kathryn and Larry 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 more Denver-area locations.

But in September of this year, a judge ordered the Baernses to stop operating under the Steak ’n Shake banner because of an ongoing, increasingly contentious disagreement with the corporate office over pricing of menu items. At one point, the dispute prompted Steak ’n Shake corporate to cut off the computerized cash register systems in Centennial and Sheridan. This summer, a Denver judge stepped into the fray and granted the Baernses a temporary restraining order, forcing the company 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 Baernses were forced to close their restaurants again. Although the two parties remain embroiled in legal action over damage claims by the Baernses, last month the company announced it had reached an agreement with the family to take over the two Denver-area locations. In their most recent press release, Steak ’n Shake officials made no mention of the ongoing legal issues. Attempts to reach the Baernses or their attorney were unsuccessful. But none of the restaurant chain’s recent legal challenges seemed to concern those standing in line outside the Centennial Steak ’n Shake Nov. 25. “I heard about the free food on the radio and had to come over here and check it out,” said Craig Wilson, who lives in Aurora and had been waiting in line for three hours, covered by a thick blanket and thin layer of snow flurries. “My toes are frozen and I feel like I could be catching a cold,” Wilson said. “But a free steak burger and vanilla shake should be just what the doctor ordered.”

CANCER (Jun 21 to Jul 22) A change in plans could make it tough to keep a commitment. But stay with it. You’ll get an A-plus for making the effort to do what’s right and not taking the easy way out by running off. LEO (Jul 23 to Aug 22) The Lion’s enthusiasm for a workplace policy review is admirable. But be sure you know who is really behind the resistance to change before pointing your finger at the wrong person. VIRGO (Aug 23 to Sept 22) You can expect to have to do a lot of work through midweek. Devote the rest of the week to checking your holiday plans in case some need to be adjusted to accommodate changes. LIBRA (Sept 23 to Oct 22) Try to avoid signing on the dotted line in the early part of the week. You need time to study issues that weren’t fully explored. Later in the week might be more favorable for decisionmaking. SCORPIO (Oct 23 to Nov 21) A new development could snarl travel schedules or other holiday-linked projects. Some flexibility might be called for to deal with the problems before they get too far out of hand. SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 to Dec 21) Relatives seek your advice on a matter you’d rather not be involved in. If so, use that sage Sagittarian tact to decline the “offer,” so that no one’s feelings are needlessly hurt. CAPRICORN (Dec 22 to Jan 19) A shift in planning direction might help you speed up your progress toward achieving that long-planned goal. Trusted colleagues are ready to offer some valuable support. AQUARIUS (Jan 20 to Feb 18) An unexpected demand for settlement of an old loan could create some pre-holiday anxiety. But you might not really owe it. Check your records thoroughly before remitting payment. PISCES (Feb 19 to Mar 20) It’s a good time to get into the social swim and enjoy some well-earned fun and games with those closest to you before you have to resume more serious activities next week.

The theme of the day was “Imagination Embraces the World.” SMHA ed in once Executive Director Val Purser exand plained it was from an Albert Einr res- stein quote: “Knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, em- while imagination embraces the enaims tire world and all there ever will be to pany know and understand.” Purser said imagination has been ment the driving force behind SMHA, which Denwas first conceived of in 2009 by a Steak group of people concerned about the f the lack of access to health care by many South Metro residents.

“When we imagine a healthy community, we think of a strong, integrated health-care model that provides access to care and care coordination for absolutely everyone,” she told the attendees. Traci Jones, SMHA’s director of communications, said that even though having health insurance is now federally mandated, there will still be about 60,000 people in Arapahoe and Douglas counties who won’t have it. Undocumented residents are included in that figure, as are people who won’t be able to afford it even with tax subsidies and those who simply choose to pay the fine instead. Jones said the organization originally grew out of the Littleton Immigrant Integration Initiative, which was conceived of at a Littleton Community Retreat. This year’s LCR focused on health, and SMHA was well represented, rounding out a circle. Things really took off with a grant from the Colorado Health Foundation in 2011, which hired Purser and Jones. They grew the membership from 16 to 107 in just a year, and implemented

enrichment workshops, community meetings, traveling outreach, research and pilot programs. SMHA honored three of its founding board members during the luncheon: Maria Pearson, executive director of TLC Meals on Wheels; Lisa Traudt, a director at Arapahoe/Douglas Mental Health Network; and Linda Comeaux, a dean at Arapahoe Community College. Awards were also given to organizations that are effectively using technology to share patients’ health records throughout the medical community. “This allows delivery of the right health information to the right place at the right time, providing safer, more timely, efficient, patient-centered care,” said Christine Baker of the Colorado Regional Health Information Organization. The recipients were Greenwood Pediatrics, Dr. Ellen Burkett, Centura Health and Doctors Care. For more information on SMHA’s services, call 303-793-9604 or visit www.southmetrohealthalliance.org.

It’s time to go with the glow

‘ANNIE’ lights up Town Hall Comic strip gave birth to musical By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com Pretend it is December 1933 — and enjoy Town Hall Arts Center’s holiday treat for the community. Harold Gray’s popular Depression-era comic strip about a spunky little orphan with red hair gained a new life in 1977 when Thomas Meehan, Charles Strouse and Martin Charnin created a musical called “Annie.” It initially ran in New York for six years and has surfaced regularly ever since. It is Town Hall’s choice for the 2013 holiday season and tickets are flying out the door for the show, which opened Nov. 15. Veteran director Bob Wells has again brought his special skills to producing “Annie” on Town Hall’s small stage. Working with those little girls has been a joy, he said

backstage before the opening night performance — with a giant grin lighting up his face. With its well-crafted production, positive vibes, wacky characters, cute kids, music and dance — and even a Christmas party at the end — it’s an ideal show for family audiences. Sidney Fairbairn, a sixth-grader at West Middle School, debuts at Town Hall in the Annie role and expert comic LuAnn Buckstein was born to play the tipsy Miss Hannigan. Annie’s young fellow orphans at the New York City Municipal Orphanage bring considerable stage presence, strong singing voices and experience to the story: Regan Fenske, Rebecca Hyde, Serena Kopf, Lexi Lubotsky and Jenna Paige Smith. Daniel Langhoff shaved his head and brought his warm voice to Town Hall to play corporate magnate Daddy Warbucks.

Truth hurts in ‘Rancho Mirage’ Glib chatter morphs into something else By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcolorado news.com Time: now. Scene: a handsome, expensive home in any American suburb — here it’s called “Rancho Mirage,” which is also the name of Steven Dietz’s new play, now running at Curious Theatre as part of a rolling world premiere. (Curious is part of the National New Play Network which promises at least three productions in a year for chosen new plays. This process gives a new work exposure enough to give it legs.) As lights go up on the first scene, Diane (C. Kelly Leo) and Nick Dahner (Bill Hahn) are fussing over dinner party preparations as they await the arrival of their good friends Trevor (David Russell) and Louise Parker Neese (Karen Slack) and Char-

“Rancho Mirage” by Steven Dietz plays through Dec. 7 at Curious Theatre. From left: Karen Slack (Louise Parker Neese); Erik Sandvold (Charlie Caldwell); C. Kelly Leo (Diane Dahner); Bill Hahn (Nick Dahner); Emily Paton Davies (Pam Caldwell). Courtesy photo lie (Erik Sandvold) and Pam Caldwell (Emily Paton Davies). Tension is apparent from the first conversation and it increases as the other players appear. Dietz, a Colorado-born playwright who University of Texas and is one of America’s most produced theater writers, is known for his crisp, sharp

dialogue and unexpected story twists. He is quoted in a Curious publication, when questioned about his inspiration for “Rancho Mirage”: “What would happen when a group of friends — good friends — ended up together and started telling the whole truth to each other?”

His picture of a group of welloff American 30- to 40-somethings seems spot-on as they talk about money problems, marital issues, minor envies, ambitions, children, inability to have children, travel, babysitters and more. They are competitive, sympathetic and ornery in turn as the evening wears on. One thinks one has the tale figured out and then Dietz takes one in another direction. The cast is filled with mature, extremely skilled actors, who develop each character in depth and make delivery of Dietz’s lines zing. Director Christopher Leo keeps the pace fast and steady, if a bit frantic, as ideas and experiences are discussed one after the other by a group you almost like — most of the time. “Rancho Mirage” invites the audience to listen in on an evening they may have experienced before in their own lives. This is well-crafted contemporary theater at its best.

City streetlights, even stoplights dressed in bright red and green, and purple, and yellow, and orange and, and, and, will dazzle downtown Denver dwellers and visitors beginning with the Grand Illumination at 6 p.m. Nov. 29. The city’s celebration begins with opening day of the Southwest Rink at Skyline Park, at 16th Street and Arapahoe, beginning at 10 a.m. daily through Feb. 16. Skating is free with skate rentals at $2 (skate rental on opening day is free). More information: www.southwestrink.com. Your Keys to the City, a public piano art program created by the Downtown Denver Partnership, returns along the 16th Street Mall with five winter-themed pianos painted by local artists. The pianos, which will remain along the mall until Dec. 30, are available for free public play from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily. At 6 p.m. Nov. 29, Denver’s historic D&F Tower will turn on its holiday lights, and more than 550,000 energy-efficient LED lights will illuminate the 16th Street Mall, California Street between 14th and 17th streets and Curtis Street between 14th and 16th streets. Meanwhile at Union Station, LoDo District Inc. will present a holiday-themed choir, a Children’s Museum craft table, treats provided by LoDo restaurants and a visit from Dinger Claus (the Colorado Rockies mascot in costume). The City and County Building, lit entirely in LED lights, will be illuminated nightly from 5:45 to 10:45 p.m. through Jan. 26.

Charity CD coming

Lone Tree art event is class act 100 works are on display in center By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com While it will be easier to get a good look at the art at a later date, it was genuinely rewarding to see the large crowd of art lovers who turned out for the Nov. 16 opening reception of the 12th Annual Lone Tree Art Exhibition and Sale, displayed at the Lone Tree Arts Center through Jan. 5. Soft classical music by the Mountain Air String Quartet drifted through the spacious lobby of the center. Fine Arts Commission Chair Lucius Brooker announced that there had been 330 entries from across Colorado as well as Wyoming and South Carolina for juror Katharine Smith-Warren to judge. She selected a total of 100 art works by 68 artists for the show and they fill the lobby, a central hall and sitting room to the rear. Smith-Warren, a Denver artist, teacher and curator, has extensive experience in the metro area, where she presently oversees the Visiting Artist program at Art Students League of Denver and teaches a class on “The Denver Art Scene” for the Enrichment Program at the University of Denver’s University College. She spoke briefly at the opening, saying she was impressed and hoped everything sold. In her statement, she complimented the range of work. “There was work that was intellectually challenging, images that evoked memories and work that displayed curiosity and new ideas.” The art is skillfully arranged in Lone Tree curator Sally Perisho’s installation. Smith-Warren awarded the “Best in Show” ribbon to accomplished artist Linda Lowry’s oil painting, “Water Nymphs,” a horizontal (12”x55”) picture of a row of happy splashing children in the water.

Lowry, who lives in Boulder, is a former Arapahoe Community College instructor. Her skilled painting technique invites a close look. This is one from a delightful 2012 Denver gallery one-woman exhibit on the water nymph theme. She will win the opportunity to mount a solo show at the center in 2014. Awards for oils: First, “Don Quixote’s Ghost” by Rosa Knoblock, an imaginative bit of storytelling. Second was “Last Light” by Tracy Haines, which depicts a snowy road heading into the woods. Third in oils is Jane Smith’s “On the Edge,” an abstracted visit to the water’s edge. Honorable mentions: Sina March, Charlene Goldman and Heather Arenas. Watercolorist Sandra Daney took first place in Water Media with “Umbrella Day,” a city street scene and Alice Riley’s nicely composed “Gloaming” won second. Jurgen Sander’s strongly colored abstract “Untitled II” has a Third Place ribbon and Honorable Mention went to Martha Heppard’s charming “American Avocets, Batik.” Mixed Media ribbons were awarded to: Jennifer Davey, First for her large yellow abstract “Uncovering;” Second to Cherri LaMarr’s sober portrait, “The Girl in the Green Chair” and Third to Ron Gebhardt’s humorous “Portrait of Adam With Tattoo,” an overweight male nude in repose. Mixed Media Honorable Mentions were awarded to Judith Bennett’s warmly colored abstract, “Subtle Interplay” and Valerie Savage’s unique “Reflecting on the First Flight” — carved from an old book, with painting added. Pastel awards included Laurie Sorkin’s soft father and son portrait, “Kite Flying”; Tracy Haines’ deeply colored “Rox Park Down” and Loretta Foyle’s horizontal landscape “In the Shadows. Fred Lunger’s “Mountain Bluebird” and Tania Rustage’s “Imbalance” won in Sculpture.

“Roxborough Shadows” by Sina March, oil 20” x 30,” won an honorable mention in the 12th Annual Lone Tree Art Exhibition and Sale. Courtesy photo by Dustin Ellingboe

Said replacement water will be purchased and used incrementally as needed for expanding operations. Further, Applicant prays that this Court grant the application and for such other relief as seems proper in the premises. (8 pages).

Introduction: Applicant filed the original application in this matter on January 31, 2008. By leave of the Court, Cottonwood amended the application on February 9, 2010. In the Second Amendment, Applicant seeks to update the application to conform to changes that have been made to Applicant’s water system since the original application. By this second amended application, Cottonwood seeks approval of three interrelated claims. In the First Claim, Cottonwood seeks adjudication of water rights associated with the following new tributary well structures associated with its integrated municipal water supply and wastewater treatment system (“integrated water system”): (1) Cottonwood Pine Lane Well No. 1, which will be used as a component of Cottonwood’s integrated water system; and (2) the Cottonwood Cherry Creek Well Field, which will consist of up to seven new well structures to be used as components of Cottonwood’s integrated water system. Water will also be diverted through such wells as alternate points of diversion for Cottonwood’s other water rights priorities described below or out-of-priority pursuant to the modified augmentation plan requested herein. In the Second Claim, Cottonwood seeks approval of the following changes of water rights: (1) changes to the Cottonwood Cherry Creek Exchange to permit exchange of Cottonwood’s reusable effluent to any of the new requested wells as described in the First Claim or to points of diversion for storage into Rueter Hess, to add replacement sources to the exchange, and to authorize exchange of reusable effluent into storage in Rueter-Hess Reservoir, Chambers Reservoir or other reservoirs; (2) change in point of diversion of Cottonwood’s existing Feedlot Well No. 2, Diamond Over D Well Nos. 1 and 3 and Deep Well No. 6 water rights; (3) change of Cottonwood’s senior consumptive use water rights in the Fifty Nine No. 1, Boss, and Gillman Ditches to add the new wells described in the First Claim as alternate diversion points of such consumptive use water; (4) change of consumptive use water rights in the Boss and Gillman Ditches and Loyd Well Nos. 1 18788 and 2-14736 to municipal use in Cottonwood’s integrated water system and as a replacement and exchange source under the modified augmentation plan requested herein; (5) to add alternate points of diversion for Diamond Over D Well Nos. 1–7, the Bruce Domestic Well, Feedlot Well No. 2 and Cottonwood Loyd Well Nos. 1 18788 and 2 14736 to the location of the proposed new wells described in the First Claim; (6) to add aquifer storage recharge and recovery as a permitted use for Cottonwood’s consumptive use water rights in the Fifty Nine No. 1, Boss, and Gillman Ditches and Cottonwood’s existing Feedlot Well No. 2, Bruce Domestic Well, Diamond Over D Well Nos. 1–7, and Cottonwood Loyd Well Nos. 1 18788 and 2-14736 water rights; and (7) to add new sources of water into Cottonwood’s integrated water system. In the Third Claim, Cottonwood seeks approval of certain modifications to its decreed augmentation plans, including changes to: (1) conform them to the current makeup, demands and operations of Cottonwood, and to change certain of the accounting procedures specified therein, including the calculation and accounting of lawn irrigation return flow credits; (2) include the new wells described in the First Claim as augmented structures under those plans; (3) incorporate the changes described in the Second Claim; and (4) add new sources of augmentation water. Each of these claims is further described below. A map of the current boundaries of Cottonwood and its expected future service area is attached hereto as Exhibit A, and incorporated herein. FIRST CLAIM: NEW TRIBUTARY GROUND WATER RIGHTS Names of structures: Cottonwood Pine Lane Well No. 1. Cottonwood Cherry Creek Well Field, including, but not limited to, Cottonwood Cherry Creek Well Nos. 1 through 7, inclusive, as described below. Legal descriptions of points of diversion: The locations of the new wells are depicted on Exhibit B, attached to the application, and described as follows: Cottonwood Pine Lane Well No. 1: This well will be located in the NE1/4 of the NW1/4 of Section 9, Township 6 South, Range 66 West of the 6th P.M., Douglas County, Colorado, at a point approximately 582 feet from the north section line and 2,416 feet from the west section line of said Section 9. Cottonwood Cherry Creek Well Field: This proposed well field may contain up to seven wells (one of which has been drilled) to be developed along the Cherry Creek alluvium within the boundaries of Cottonwood, as they presently exist or may be modified in the future, with said wells to be located not less than 600 feet from any tributary well not owned by Cottonwood (absent waiver of the 600-foot spacing requirement by the owner of any such well, exercise of the power of eminent domain, or a determination by the State Engineer that a variance of such spacing requirement is warranted pursuant to C.R.S. § 37-90-137(2)(b)(I)). Cottonwood’s present boundaries are depicted on Exhibit A to the application. Cottonwood proposes to initially develop the following wells in the Cottonwood Cherry Creek Well Field, although the locations of these wells may be modified so long as they are not moved to a location within 600 feet of any existing well, other than a well owned by Cottonwood: Cottonwood Cherry Creek Well No. 1: This well will be located in the NE1/4 of the NE1/4 of Section 5, Township 6 South, Range 66 West of the 6th P.M., Douglas County, Colorado, at a point approximately 200 feet from the north section line and 700 feet from the east section line of said Section 5.

Sources: Cottonwood Pine Lane Well No. 1: Groundwater from the alluvium of Cherry Creek, tributary to the South Platte River. Cottonwood Pine Lane Well No. 1 may also be used as an alternate point of diversion for the water rights decreed to the Cottonwood Cherry Creek Well Field. Additionally, Cottonwood requests in Claim No. 2 to use the well as an alternate point of diversion for its previously-decreed consumptive use water rights in the Boss Ditch, the Gillman Ditch, the Fifty-Nine No. 1 Ditch, the DD Wells, the Bruce Domestic Well, Feedlot Well No. 2 and Cottonwood Loyd Well Nos. 1 18788 and 2 14736. Cottonwood Cherry Creek Well Field: Groundwater from the alluvium of Cherry Creek, tributary to the South Platte River. The Cottonwood Cherry Creek Well Field may also be used as an alternate point of diversion for the water rights decreed to Cottonwood Pine Lane Well No. 1. Additionally, Cottonwood requests in Claim No. 2 to use the well as an alternate point of diversion for Cottonwood’s previously-decreed consumptive use water rights in the Boss Ditch, the Gillman Ditch, the Fifty-Nine No. 1 Ditch, the DD Wells, the Bruce Domestic Well, Feedlot Well No. 2 and Cottonwood Loyd Well Nos. 1 18788 and 2 14736. Depths: Cottonwood Pine Lane Well No. 1 and the wells in the Cottonwood Cherry Creek Well Field will be drilled to depths ranging from approximately 40 to 100 feet. Appropriation date: December 18, 2007. Cottonwood appropriated water for these wells by Resolution of its Board of Directors, and by posting notice of the claimed water rights. Amounts: Cottonwood Pine Lane Well No. 1: 2 cfs, CONDITIONAL. Cottonwood Cherry Creek Well Field: 14 cfs, CONDITIONAL, cumulatively on an instantaneous basis among all of the wells in the well field. Uses: The new water rights claimed herein will be used for all existing and future uses of Cottonwood, its customers and others, within and outside Cottonwood’s boundaries, and are intended to be used in Cottonwood’s integrated water system for all municipal and other beneficial uses, including, but not limited to, domestic, agricultural, industrial, commercial, irrigation, stockwatering, fire protection, recreation, fish and wildlife preservation and propagation, augmentation and exchange purposes, the replacement of depletions resulting from the use of water from other sources, the recharge of Denver Basin aquifers, the diversion of consumptive use water, and the recapture of reusable and fully consumable return flows contained in effluent discharged to points on Cherry Creek, Lone Tree Creek and/or to Happy Canyon Creek, including any such reusable water exchanged to the wells pursuant to the Second Claim below, either by immediate application or by storage, which may include aquifer storage recharge and recovery in Denver Basin aquifers, and subsequent application to said uses. The new water rights set forth herein will be used to promote maximum utilization of existing water resources and to meet future demand by Cottonwood’s customers, which is projected at full buildout to be approximately 2,512 acre-feet per year, including the future anticipated service area. Water from the wells described herein may be used, reused and successively used to extinction within Cottonwood’s boundaries, as they presently exist or may be modified from time to time, or extraterritorially pursuant to contract, agreement or other lawful arrangement, including, but not limited to, water exchanges or water sharing with other persons or entities under the decree of Upper Cherry Creek Water Association (“UCCWA”) in Case No. 01CW284, under a future contract with nearby water providers such as ACWWA, Inverness Water and Sanitation District (“Inverness”) or Stonegate Village Metropolitan District (“Stonegate”), or otherwise as permitted by law. Well permits and depletions: Cottonwood will apply for and obtain well permits in accordance with C.R.S. §§ 37 90 137, 37 92 302, and 37 92 305, and other applicable laws and regulations. Because of the variability of the Cherry Creek alluvium, the timing and amount of depletions resulting from these wells to be located within the Cottonwood Cherry Creek Well Field cannot be predicted with certainty until representative wells are actually drilled and tested. Once such wells have been drilled and tested, the amount and timing of depletions to Cherry Creek will be calculated by Cottonwood on a weekly basis, using the Glover Depletion Method or other acceptable engineering methodology. Any out-of-priority well depletions from diversion of these new wells will be augmented and replaced pursuant to the Third Claim below. In accordance with State Engineer Policy 99 1, within 60 days of the construction of any well in the Cottonwood Cherry Creek Well Field pursuant to well permit, Cottonwood will notify the Water Court and the Division of Water Resources of the precise location of such well. Cottonwood will provide written notice of a constructed well’s calculated depletion characteristics and the proposed incorporation of such additional well into Cottonwood’s augmentation plan accounting to all opposing parties who request such notification. Those parties will be given an opportunity to comment on such matters prior to approval of any revised accounting by the State and Division Engineers. The Water Court will

retain jurisdiction to resolve any disputes that may arise between the parties and/or the State and Division Engineers regarding such matters. Integrated water system: The new wells requested herein will be part of a single water “project or integrated water system” within the meaning of C.R.S. § 37 92 301(4)(b), such that work on any feature of Cottonwood’s integrated water system shall be considered in finding in the future that reasonable diligence has been shown in the development of any and all water rights for that entire system. Names and addresses of owners of land where well structures will be located: On lands owned by Cottonwood and/or its customers, including but not limited to lands acquired by Cottonwood’s eminent domain powers, or on lands owned by others that have granted Cottonwood permission or the right to construct a well or wells on such lands, including the following landowners for the abovedescribed structures claimed herein: Cottonwood Pine Lane Well No. 1: Douglas County Board of County Commissioners, 100 Third Street. Castle Rock, CO 80104. Cottonwood Cherry Creek Well No. 1: Cottonwood Water and Sanitation District. Cottonwood Cherry Creek Well Nos. 2-5: Cottonwood Metropolitan District, P.O. Box 2917, 2305 E.

Previously decreed rights: The points of diversion for the following previously decreed water rights are depicted on Exhibits B, D, and E, attached hereto and incorporated herein. Cottonwood Cherry Creek Exchange: On July 22, 1999 in Case No. 95CW276, the District Court for Water Division No. 1, State of Colorado (“Water Court”), granted appropriative rights of substitution and exchange in the amount of 3.26 cfs, conditional, with an appropriation date of July 13, 1993, pursuant to which Cottonwood may exchange from waters flowing into Cherry Creek Reservoir and then upstream on Cherry Creek for diversion through one or more of Diamond Over D Well Nos. 1 through 7, the Bruce Domestic Well, or the Feedlot Well No. 2 as to its: (1) fully-consumable return flows from Cottonwood’s nontributary and not nontributary Dawson, Denver, Arapahoe and Laramie-Fox Hills wells decreed by the Water Court in Case Nos. W 7824, 80CW416, 81CW368, 83CW173, 84CW206, 85CW190, 85CW195, 86CW270(A) and 85CW167 and other Denver Basin wells within Cottonwood’s service area, and (2) fully-consumable return flows from Cottonwood’s consumptive use in the Boss Ditch, the Gillman Ditch, the Fifty Nine No. 1 Ditch, and the Dixon Feedlot junior water rights (Bruce Domestic Well and Feedlot Well No. 2), and 541 acre-feet of municipal use water with a priority date of August 3, 1982, quantified by the Water Court in the decree entered on March 21, 1986 in Case No. 81CW142. A decree making said exchange partially absolute in the amount of 1.02 cfs was entered by the Water Court on April 27, 2006 in Case No. 05CW189. A finding of reasonable diligence was granted as to the Cottonwood Cherry Creek Exchange, and the remaining conditional water rights were continued in full force and effect in the amount of 2.24 cfs, conditional, in Case No. 12CW93 on December 7, 2012. Cottonwood will continue to operate its Cherry Creek Exchange within the previously-decreed exchange rate. Diamond Over D Well Nos. 1 through 7 (“DD Wells”): The DD Wells were decreed for irrigation use on November 10, 1969 in Civil Action No. 3746, by the District Court of Douglas County, State of Colorado (“District Court”), as new and alternate points of diversion for Cottonwood’s undivided one-half interest in the senior irrigation water rights in the Fifty Nine No. 1 Ditch, the Boss Ditch, and the Gillman Ditch. By decree dated March 21, 1986 in Case No. 81CW142, the Water Court changed the DD Wells to year-round municipal use and quantified their historical consumptive use. Pursuant to the 81CW142 decree, the DD Wells are entitled to divert up to 141 acre-feet per year of consumptive use under the senior priorities of the Fifty Nine No. 1 Ditch (57 acre-feet per year under a May 1, 1862 priority), the Boss Ditch (42 acre-feet per year under a July 30, 1869 priority) and the Gillman Ditch (42 acre-feet per year under a February 28, 1880 priority). The DD Wells are also entitled to divert up to 541 acre-feet per year of consumptive use under an August 3, 1982 priority; the Bruce Domestic Well is entitled to divert up to 2 acre-feet per year of consumptive use under a July 30, 1954 priority; and the Feedlot Well No. 2 is entitled to divert up to 43.5 acre-feet per year of consumptive use under a June 30, 1952 priority, all for municipal purposes. Since entry of the 81CW142 decree described in the Third Claim herein, said wells have been used to supply Cottonwood’s municipal water demands. Attached to the application as Exhibit F is a summary of diversion records relating to the Cottonwood integrated water system between 1999 and the original filing of this application. The DD Wells divert groundwater tributary to Cherry Creek at the following decreed locations: Diamond Over D Well No. 1 (a/k/a Cottonwood Well No. DD-1; Permit No. R-18954-RF): Decreed in Civil Action No. 3746 at a point in the NE1/4 of the SW1/4 of Section 4 from whence the west quarter corner of Section 9 bears South 28°30’ West, a distance of 5,300 feet, more or less.

In Case No. 81CW142, the Water Court determined the consumptive use of the entire Gillman Ditch right to be 85.0 acre-feet annually and, in accord with Cottonwood’s undivided one-half interest in the Gillman Ditch right, quantified Cottonwood’s associated consumptive use as 42 acre-feet annually. In Case No. 84CW155, the Water Court quantified the consumptive use associated with Cottonwood’s additional 1.21 cfs interest in the Gillman right as 10.2 acre-feet annually. Dixon Feedlot junior rights: Bruce Domestic Well (Unregistered): This well was drilled in July 1954 as an exempt domestic well pursuant to C.R.S. § 37 92 602(1)(b), and was located in the SW1/4 of the NE1/4 of Section 4, Township 6 South, Range 66 West of the 6th P.M., at a point 2,500 feet from the east section line and 1,500 feet from the north section line of said Section 4. In Case No. 81CW142, the Water Court approved a decree changing the Bruce Domestic Well to year-round municipal use and quantified its historical consumptive use. On December 26, 1985 in Case No. 82CW138, the Water Court approved a decree transferring the July 30, 1954 appropriation for the Bruce Domestic Well to Diamond Over D Well No. 4, as described above. Feedlot Well No. 2 (a/k/a Cottonwood Well No. FL-2; Permit No. 26689 RF): On August 1, 1973 in Case No. W-2853, the Water Court adjudicated this well for commercial feedlot and irrigation use at a diversion rate of 1.0 cfs, with an appropriation date of June 30, 1952, at a location in Section 4, Township 6 South, Range 66 West of the 6th P.M., Douglas County, Colorado, at a point approximately 2,690 feet north and 3,940 feet west of the SE Corner of said Section 4. In the 81CW142 decree, the Water Court changed Feedlot Well No. 2 to year-round municipal use and quantified its historical consumptive use. The Water Court further changed the well to its actual location in the NE1/4 of the SW1/4 of said Section 4, at a point approximately 2,643 feet from the north section line and 2,097 feet from the west section line of said Section 4. Cottonwood Loyd Wells: Cottonwood owns the water rights associated with Loyd Well Nos. 1-18788 and 2-14736, together with related easements and rights-of-way. The Water Court adjudicated the Loyd Well water rights in Case No. W 2640 as described below. Said wells were also approved as alternate points of diversion for Cottonwood’s additional interests in the Boss Ditch and Gillman Ditch water rights (separate from Cottonwood’s original one-half ownership interest), by the Water Court’s decree entered on March 19, 1975 in Case No. W 2688. The historical consumptive irrigation use of the Loyd Well water rights was quantified and approved by the Water Court for year-round irrigation, municipal, domestic, storage, commercial, replacement and all other beneficial uses on December 13, 1988 in Case No. 84CW155 as 19.7 acre-feet annually. Cottonwood Loyd Well No. 1 18788: Decreed by the Water Court on May 14, 1973 in Case No. W-2640, for irrigation use at a diversion rate of 1.78 cfs, with an appropriation date of December 31, 1941, and which diverts groundwater tributary to Cherry Creek from a location in the SE1/4 of the NE1/4 of Section 9, Township 6 South, Range 66

West of the 6th P.M., Douglas County, Colorado, at a point 2,640 feet south and 510 feet west of the NE corner of said Section 9. Cottonwood Loyd Well No. 2-14736 (a/k/a 1A 14736): Decreed by the Water Court on May 14, 1973 in Case No. W-2640, for irrigation use at a diversion rate of 0.89 cfs, with an appropriation date of December 31, 1941, and which diverts groundwater tributary to Cherry Creek from a location in the SE1/4 of the NE1/4 of Section 9, Township 6 South, Range 66 West of the 6th P.M., Douglas County, Colorado, at a point 2,640 feet north and 615 feet west of the SE corner of said Section 9. Deep Well No. 6 (a/k/a Cottonwood Well No. D-6; Permit No. 23623-F): Decreed by the Water Court on September 25, 1981 in Case No. 80CW416, at a rate of 0.56 cfs (250 gpm) and in the amount of 97 acre-feet per year, with an appropriation date of March 14, 1977, and located in the NE1/4 of the SE1/4 of Section 5, Township 6 South, Range 66 West of the 6th P.M., at a point 1,993 feet from the south section and 770 feet from the east section line of said Section 5. Proposed changes: Change in decreed well locations: Cottonwood seeks approval of a change of water rights in order to re-drill DD Well Nos. 1 and 3, Feedlot Well No. 2 and Deep Well No. 6 at new locations more than 200 feet from their decreed locations. The requested new or conformed locations of such wells are described below, and depicted on Exhibits B and D: Diamond Over D Well No. 1: Re-drilled at a location in the NW1/4 of the SW1/4 of Section 4, Township 6 South, Range 66 West of the 6th P.M., Douglas County, Colorado, at a point approximately 1,180 feet from the west section line and 2,030 feet from the south section line of said Section 4. Attached to the application as Exhibit C, and incorporated herein, are the well permit and well testing reports associated with re-drilled Diamond Over D Well No. 1. Diamond Over D Well No. 3: To be re-drilled at a location in the SW1/4 of the NW1/4 of Section 4, Township 6 South, Range 66 West of the 6th P.M., Douglas County, Colorado, at a point approximately 1,005 feet from the west section line and 1,965 feet from the north section line of said Section 4. Feedlot Well No. 2: To be re-drilled at a location in the NE1/4 of the SW1/4 of Section 4, Township 6 South, Range 66 West of the 6th P.M., Douglas County, Colorado, at a point approximately 1,990 feet from the west section line and 2,530 feet from the south section line of said Section 4. Deep Well No. 6: To be re-drilled at a location in the SE1/4 of the SE1/4, Section 5, Township 6 South, Range 66 West of the 6th P.M., at a point 630 feet from the east line and 1,250 feet from the south line of said Section 5. Cottonwood reserves the right to locate the above-described wells within 200 feet of the above-described locations. Change of consumptive use rights: Cottonwood has acquired additional consumptive use water rights in the Boss and Gillman Ditches and water rights associated with Loyd Well Nos. 1-18788 and 2 14736, and quantified in Case No. 84CW155, and seeks approval herein to use, reuse and successively use said water to extinction for all beneficial municipal purposes, in and through Cottonwood’s integrated water system, by direct application, storage for subsequent application (including, without limitation, Denver Basin aquifer storage recharge and recovery) and/or use by exchange, including use as an augmentation and replacement source under the Third Claim set forth below. Alternate points of diversion: Cottonwood hereby requests approval of the use of the new tributary well structures described in the First Claim above as alternate diversion points for Cottonwood’s previously-decreed consumptive use water rights in the Boss Ditch, the Gillman Ditch, the Fifty Nine No. 1 Ditch, the DD Wells, the Bruce Domestic Well, Feedlot Well No. 2, and Cottonwood Loyd Well Nos. 1 18788 and 2 14736. Type of use: Cottonwood hereby requests approval to add aquifer storage, recharge and recovery as an additional permitted use for its previously-decreed consumptive use water rights in the Boss Ditch, the Gillman Ditch, the Fifty Nine No. 1 Ditch, the DD Wells, the Bruce Domestic Well, Feedlot Well No. 2 and Cottonwood Loyd Well Nos. 1 18788 and 2 14736. Change of Cottonwood Cherry Creek Exchange: Cottonwood hereby requests approval of the following changes to its exchange rights decreed in Case No. 95CW276, as depicted on Exhibit E, attached to the application: Include the new tributary well structures described in the First Claim above, together with Cottonwood Loyd Well Nos. 1 18788 and 2 14736 as additional upstream exchange-to points of diversion for recapture of Cottonwood’s reusable and fully consumable sources exchanged up Cherry Creek pursuant to the 95CW276 exchange. Additionally, permit the exchange of Cottonwood’s reusable and fully-consumable water into storage in Rueter-Hess Reservoir, subject to agreement with Parker Water and Sanitation District (“Parker Water”) regarding use thereof, Chambers Reservoir, subject to agreement with ACWWA, and/or other existing or future reservoirs in the intervening reach, including, without limitation, Denver Basin aquifer storage recharge and recovery, by recapture through any of the exchange-to points of diversion, including those additional points requested herein. Rueter-Hess Reservoir was initially decreed to Parker Water and Sanitation District in Case No. 85CW448(A) under the name Newlin Gulch Reservoir in the amount of 9,885 acre-feet, with alternate points of diversion decreed in Case Nos. 01CW60 and 99CW226, and as decreed for the first enlargement to Rueter-Hess Reservoir in Case No. 04CW348, for a total decreed capacity of 71,920 acre-feet, conditional. Chambers Reservoir is located in the W1/2 of the NW1/4 of Section 6, Township 6 South, Range 66 West of the 6th P.M., Douglas County, Colorado, and is included in the pending application of ACWWA in Case No. 96CW1144. ACWWA has applied for a conditional storage right for 1,423.2 acre-feet/year, with the right to fill and refill multiple times, with a claimed appropriation date of December 8, 2010. To facilitate storage in Rueter-Hess Reservoir, the following additional upstream exchange-to points of diversion are included in the Cottonwood Cherry Creek Exchange for recapture of Cottonwood’s reusable and fully-consumable sources exchanged up Cherry Creek pursuant to the 95CW276 exchange: Newlin Gulch Aqueduct No. 2, located in the SE1/4 NW1/4, Section 3, Township 7 South, Range 66 West of the 6th P.M. in Douglas County, where said diversion dam will intersect the thread of Cherry Creek at a point 2,090 feet south of the north line of Section 3 and 1,870 feet east of the west line of said Section 3, per Case No. 04CW348; and alluvial wells of Parker Water that withdraw groundwater and deliver it to a pipeline known as Newlin Gulch Aqueduct No. 1 for delivery to Rueter-Hess Reservoir, described in paragraph 13(b) of the decree in 04CW348 as the wells adjudicated by Parker Water in Case No. 83CW346, as

changed by the decree in Case 01CW060, and for which terms regarding how such water can be stored were decreed in Case 04CW270 (all such Parker Water well locations are in Township 6 South, Range 66 West of the 6th P.M. in Douglas County, Colorado, and set forth in more detail in the table in paragraph 13 of the decree in Case 04CW270), (Rueter-Hess Reservoir and points of diversion thereto are in the aggregate referred to as “Rueter-Hess Reservoir”). Water may be exchanged on Cherry Creek for points of diversion decreed to Rueter-Hess Reservoir, to the uppermost points in the stream where depletions occur for each such well or storage structure, alternatively or in addition to the previously-decreed exchange-to points. Cottonwood requests to add all Cottonwood sources of fully consumable water rights as additional replacement sources for the exchange, including, without limitation, the new water rights set forth in the first claim herein, Deep Well No. 5, the additional senior rights acquired in the Boss Ditch, and the Gillman Ditch, Cottonwood Loyd Well Nos. 1 18788 and 2 14736, and the additional water rights set forth below. Paragraph 10.B. of the 95CW276 decree provides that the exchange may only be operated at times when there is a live stream flow in Cherry Creek between Cherry Creek Reservoir and the point closest to the diverting well(s), but paragraph 23 of the decree provides that the live stream flow can be reconsidered under retained jurisdiction in that case. Specifically, the decree in 95CW276 provides that “[i]f the applicant desires to operate the exchange without the live stream condition, it shall submit a petition to this Court describing the rationale for non-live stream operation, propose terms and conditions to prevent injury to other water users, and serve a copy of the petition on all parties to this case, which parties automatically will be deemed parties of the proceeding under retained jurisdiction and shall have 60 days to respond to such petition.” Cottonwood hereby requests the ability to apply for reconsideration of the live stream flow requirement under the retained jurisdiction in this case. Operation of the exchange to the new exchange-to points shall be calculated in accordance with the 95CW276 decree. With the exception of the changes described above, Cottonwood will operate the Cottonwood Cherry Creek Exchange in accordance with the terms and conditions of the 95CW276 decree. Names and addresses of owners of land upon which wells or facilities will be located: Diamond Over D Well Nos. 1A and 3 and Feedlot Well No. 2: Cottonwood Metropolitan District, P.O.

Notice of Cottonwood’s intent to use other water rights pursuant to separate Water Court applications: Notice is hereby provided of Cottonwood’s intent to use certain additional water rights in its integrated water system described herein. The following-described water rights will be used through Cottonwood’s integrated water system, including use as additional sources of augmentation under the augmentation plan, as additional sources for exchange under the Cottonwood Cherry Creek Exchange, as sources of water for storage in Rueter Hess Reservoir, Chambers Reservoir or other reservoirs, or for storage in Denver Basin aquifers by aquifer storage recharge and recovery, subject to any terms and conditions imposed by the Water Court in applicable decrees and/or herein. Cottonwood applies for the right to use, reuse, successively use and use to extinction the following water rights, for any rights that are fully reusable and fully consumable or fully augmented: Upper Cherry Creek Water Association (“UCCWA”): The water rights of the five members comprising UCCWA, including Cottonwood, have been included in a decree for a regional augmentation plan, appropriative rights of exchange and water storage rights in the decree in Case No. 01CW284, as such decree may be amended or a new UCCWA decree entered. One purpose of the 01CW284 decree is to allow cooperative water sharing and exchanging practices among UCCWA’s members along Cherry Creek between Cherry Creek Reservoir and the U.S. Geological Survey stream gage below the Town of Parker, Colorado. The 01CW284 decree does not replace, but supplements, Cottonwood’s existing decrees and claims described herein. Cherry Creek Project Water Authority water rights: The Cherry Creek Project Water Authority (“CCPWA”), of which Cottonwood is a member along with three other municipal water providers, acquired the water rights of Western Water Company in a bankruptcy proceeding, along with certain other water rights. By a separate temporary substitute water supply plan request and/or Water Court application pending in Case No. 10CW318, CCPWA has applied to change the water rights for use within the respective service areas of the members who comprise the Authority. Subject to the terms and conditions of any administrative approval and/or decree obtained by CCPWA in Case No. 10CW318 or any future CCPWA decree, Cottonwood will be entitled to use its undivided ownership interest in the CCPWA water rights, which generally include the decreed water rights described below and such additional rights as may be set forth in the decree in Case No. 10CW318 or a future decree of CCPWA: The Cherry Creek tributary groundwater rights associated with Belcher Well, Hewins Well No. 2, Kelty Well No. 1, Sutton Well, Parker Well No. 1, Vessel No. 1 Well, Franktown Well No. 1, Franktown Well No. 2, Walker Well No. 1, Walker Sump No. 1 Well, Franktown QAL-3 Well, Vessel QAL-3 Well and Parker QAL-2 Well, as decreed by the District Court of Douglas County in Civil Action No. 3635, or by the Water Court in Case Nos. W-772, W-1776, W-1869 and 84CW680, as changed by the decrees in Case Nos. 84CW680, 88CW097 and/or 95CW280, and as augmented by the decree in Case No. 95CW279, as well as proposed alternate points of diversion: Walker Reservoir Well Nos. 1 35; Walker Reservoir Well Nos. 15W, 16W and 17W and Vessel Reservoir Well Nos. 1 20, as more specifically set forth in the application in 10CW318.

Case No. 07CW66 water rights (a/k/a the Mahoney Water Rights): The decree in this case approved a change of water rights and quantified the historical consumptive use for water rights owned by CCPWA in the Lemen Ditch (a/k/a the Lemon Ditch), the Barnes Ditch and Christiansen Well Nos. 3 and 4, for use by the members of CCPWA. These rights are permitted to be used by CCPWA’s members, including Cottonwood, within their current or future boundaries or services areas, for, inter alia, municipal and augmentation purposes in conjunction with the above-referenced Western Water Company water rights. Through its membership in CCPWA, Cottonwood shall be entitled to use an undivided interest in these water rights. John Jones Ditch: CCPWA has acquired or has a contract to acquire certain interests in the John Jones Ditch, adjudicated in the District Court of Douglas County, Colorado, on December 10, 1883 with an appropriation date of May 31, 1866 in the amount of 2.61 cfs; change pending in Case No. 08CW186, Water Division No. 1, Colorado, as further described and/or amended in the pending application in 10CW318. The John Jones Ditch historically diverted in the NE1/4 of Section 15, Township 8 South, Range 66 West of the 6th P.M. New CCPWA Water Rights. CCPWA applied for new conditional storage rights and conditional tributary water rights for the following water rights: Walker Reservoir and Vessel Reservoir, Walker Reservoir Well Nos. 1 35, Walker Reservoir Well Nos. 15W, 16W and 17W and Vessel Reservoir Well Nos. 1 20, Liberty Village Well Nos. 1 6, as set forth in the application in 10CW318, as it may be amended from time to time. WISE Water. Cottonwood has entered into a contract with several other governmental water providers to form the South Metro WISE Authority, a water authority as defined in C.R.S. § 29 1 204.2. The South Metro WISE Authority entered into the WISE Partnership – Water Delivery Agreement with the City and County of Denver, acting by and through its Board of Water Commissioners (“Denver Water”) and the City of Aurora, acting by and through its Utility Enterprise (“Aurora”), by which Aurora and Denver Water agree to provide a permanent, dependable, yet variable and interruptible supply of water to the members of the South Metro WISE Authority. Denver Water and Aurora have fully reusable portions of their water supplies that are not fully used in all years, and agreed to deliver 72,250 acre-feet in any 10 year period (7,225 acre-feet per year as an average but with variable deliveries each year) (plus any additional amounts to which the parties, or other governmental entities, such as Douglas County, subsequently subscribe) of such reusable water to the South Metro WISE Authority, through excess capacity in Aurora’s Prairie Waters Project (“PWP”). Denver Water and Aurora have contracted that the water deliveries will consist of potable water decreed for municipal use and is typically fully reusable, in accordance with state and federal safe drinking water standards. Cottonwood may store some or all of the WISE water by recharge of Denver basin aquifers prior to use or in surface reservoirs, including, without limitation, Rueter-Hess Reservoir or Chambers Reservoir. Water of Stonegate, ACWWA, Inverness and/or other Public Water Entities: In the future, Cottonwood may contract with Stonegate to divert water rights owned by Stonegate, including reusable return flows, through Cottonwood’s tributary wells for use by Cottonwood and/or delivery to Stonegate. Pursuant to the terms of such contract, Stonegate’s sources of augmentation water set forth in the 89CW136 decree may be diverted and used by Cottonwood and mixed with Cottonwood’s water sources. Similarly, in the future, Cottonwood may contract with ACWWA or Inverness to divert their water rights, including reusable return flows, through Cottonwood’s tributary wells for use by Cottonwood and/or ACWWA or Inverness. Cottonwood may enter into similar agreements with other public water entities regarding sharing water resources and use such resources in its integrated water system. THIRD CLAIM: MODIFICATIONS TO DECREED AUGMENTATION PLANS. Descriptions of

previously decreed augmentation plans: Case No. 81CW142: The decree entered in this case on March 21, 1986 approved a plan for augmentation using three methods—(1) rapid infiltration ponds, (2) open space irrigation, and (3) residential and commercial lawn irrigation—to recapture and reuse Cottonwood’s fully-consumable return flows. Case No. 88CW110: This augmentation plan decree entered by the Water Court on June 10, 1998, addressed well structures and water rights appurtenant to the Crown Pointe property added to the District, and approved the use of the same three methods previously adopted by the 81CW142 decree. Pursuant to the 88CW110 plan, during the period that Cottonwood Crown Pointe Well Nos. DA 1 and D 1 are being used to withdraw not nontributary groundwater, the required 4 percent replacement water is provided by those three methods and Cottonwood may take credit for fully-consumable return flows attributable to groundwater withdrawn through its Denver Basin wells. Case No. 01CW52: This decree, entered by the Water Court on October 9, 2002, approved the Cottonwood Crown Pointe Well No. D-4A as an alternate diversion point for Cottonwood Crown Pointe Well No. A-1 and Cottonwood Loyd Well No. A-1, all of which withdraw groundwater from the nontributary Arapahoe aquifer. Case No. 01CW284: Cottonwood is a member of UCCWA, a Colorado unincorporated nonprofit association, that operates a regional plan for augmentation, appropriative rights of exchange, and a water storage right to coordinate water use by its members, five major water suppliers along Cherry Creek between Cherry Creek Reservoir and the U.S. Geological Survey stream gage below the Town of Parker, Colorado. Paragraph 44 of the decree in 01CW284 explains that the members of UCCWA, including Cottonwood, shall operate only under the regional plan for augmentation set forth in that decree, and may not simultaneously operate the members’ individual plans for augmentation. However, any member may resume operation under its individual plan(s) for augmentation in the event the UCCWA disbands, or a member withdraws from participation in the UCCWA, or any other means of withdrawal permitted by law. Therefore, Cottonwood deems it necessary to update its individual augmentation plans as set forth in this Third Claim, in the event that Cottonwood withdraws from UCCWA, UCCWA disbands, or Cottonwood is otherwise legally permitted to resume operations under its individual augmentation plan. Nothing herein shall be deemed to be a request to amend the decree in Case. No. 01CW284. Cottonwood intends to continue to operate under the regional augmentation plan decreed in Case. No. 01CW284 until it withdraws from UCCWA or UCCWA disbands or some other reason compels Cottonwood to operate under its own plan, in which event, Cottonwood shall provide written notice to the Court under retained jurisdiction in this case, that Cottonwood is resuming operation of its individual augmentation plan per the decree entered in this case. Paragraph 47 of the decree in Case No. 01CW284 provides that “[i] nsofar as individual plans for augmentation of the Members that utilize the replacement sources described herein are temporarily discontinued while this plan for augmentation is in operation, such temporary discontinuation of use shall not be grounds for a finding of abandonment of any Member’s individual water rights, rights of exchange or plans for augmentation.” 10CW318 – CCPWA has an application pending in Case No. 10CW318 that includes a claim for approval of an augmentation plan to augment certain water rights owned by CCPWA. If approved, it is expected that CCPWA’s augmentation plan could be operated simultaneously and independently of Cottonwood’s augmentation plans as amended herein. Water rights/ structures augmented under prior decrees: Case No. 81CW142: This decree approved a plan for augmentation to replace out-of-priority depletions resulting from diversions at the following structures: Diamond Over D Well Nos. 1 through 7, Bruce Domestic Well, and Feedlot Well No. 2.

Statement of proposed modifications to decreed plans for augmentation: Cottonwood seeks approval of modifications to the augmentation plan decreed in Case No. 81CW142, as supplemented by the decrees entered in Case Nos. 88CW110, 95CW276 and 01CW052, and the accounting procedures and methods under said decrees. The proposed decree and accounting modifications include the following: Geographic scope: The 81CW142 decree described Cottonwood’s then-existing boundaries. Since entry of that decree, Cottonwood’s boundaries have changed. Cottonwood hereby seeks the right to use any of its water rights and augmentation credits either within or outside of Cottonwood’s boundaries, including an extended service area, as they presently exist or may be modified in the future. Cottonwood may exchange or share water under this plan for augmentation with other persons or entities, pursuant to decree, administrative approval, contract, agreement or other lawful arrangement, including, without limitation, the decree in Case No. 01CW284 described above or water sharing with ACWWA in connection with use of the JWPP, and may choose to provide service to customers outside of Cottonwood’s boundaries pursuant to extraterritorial service agreements. Increased demands: The 81CW142 decree provided for a period of retained jurisdiction during which Cottonwood could revise its projected demand in light of actual experiences and changes in the plan. The inclusion of the Crown Pointe property, generally located Sections 3, 4, and 10, Township 6 South, Range 66 West of the 6th P.M., into Cottonwood’s service area has increased Cottonwood’s demands. Additionally, the owners of approximately 120 acres located adjacent to the current boundaries of Cottonwood have applied or may in the future apply to be served by Cottonwood, subject to inclusion into Cottonwood or an agreement for extraterritorial service. Cottonwood seeks the right to increase projected demands at buildout to approximately 2,512 acre-feet per year, including the future anticipated service area, to be augmented hereunder. Change in recharge and accounting methods: The 81CW142 decree also enables Cottonwood “to modify the procedures and methods for determining return flows and the accounting procedures,” and further provided that the “values for return flows may be adjusted upward or downward, if necessary.” Cottonwood hereby seeks approval of the following modifications to accounting for such credits: Discontinue use of RIPs: Paragraph 17.B.2. of the 81CW142 decree contemplated Cottonwood’s use of up to six rapid infiltration ponds (“RIPs”) to recharge the Cherry Creek alluvium. Due to improved wastewater treatment methods, Cottonwood hereby seeks to replace the use of RIPs with direct discharges of effluent from ACWWA’s Lone Tree Creek Water Reuse Facility (“Lone Tree Creek WRF”) to Lone Tree Creek, and/or to Happy Canyon Creek (or its tributary Green Acres Creek) and/or to Cherry Creek. The effluent discharge shall be fully consumable and reusable to the extent that it is derived from Cottonwood’s municipal use of nontributary Denver Basin groundwater, fully consumable tributary water sources diverted in priority, fully augmented tributary sources diverted out-of-priority or not nontributary sources, or other fully consumable and reusable sources. Cottonwood began a joint project with ACWWA to construct an effluent return flow pipeline from the Lone Tree Creek WRF. The outfall of the Lone Tree Creek WRF is located in the SW1/4 of the NE1/4 of Section 24, Township 5 South, Range 67 West of the 6th P.M., Douglas County, Colorado. The effluent return flow pipeline will carry effluent from such outfall upstream along Cherry Creek to points of discharge to Happy Canyon Creek to be located in the SW1/4 of the NW1/4 of Section 5, Township 6 South, Range 66 West of the 6th P.M., Douglas County, Colorado, or in the NE1/4 of the NE1/4 of Section 6, Township 6 South, Range 66 West of the 6th P.M., Arapahoe County, Colorado, and/or to discharge points to Cherry Creek expected to be located in the NW1/4 of the NE1/4 of Section 16, Township 6 South, Range 66 West of the 6th P.M., Douglas County, Colorado, or in the NE1/4 of the NW1/4 of Section 9, Township 6 South, Range 66 West of the 6th P.M., Douglas County, Colorado. Said pipeline is partially completed at present. The projected course of this pipeline and the contemplated points of discharge to Happy Canyon Creek and/or to Cherry Creek are expected to be as depicted on the map attached to the application as Exhibit G. Alternatively, Cottonwood may utilize its rights under the 95CW276 decree and proposed changes thereto as described herein to exchange Cottonwood’s fully consumable, reusable water sources, including effluent return flows discharged by the Lone Tree Creek WRF, upstream along Cherry Creek to diversion through the tributary wells described in the First Claim above or through the DD Wells, or Feedlot Well No. 2, for immediate use or for storage for subsequent use in existing and future reservoirs that Cottonwood and/or ACWWA own or have a right to use, including, but not limited to, Rueter-Hess Reservoir and Chambers Reservoir. Change of storage: Paragraph 17.B.1. of the 81CW142 decree contemplated Cottonwood’s storage of wastewater effluent treated through a secondary treatment plant in a holding pond with an approximate surface area at a high water line of 4.2 acres, for slow infiltration of such effluent into the Cherry Creek alluvium and use thereof by Cottonwood as an augmentation credit. That effluent holding pond had been constructed and used at a location in the SW1/4 of Section 5, Township 6 South, Range 66 West of the 6th P.M., Douglas County, Colorado, with the center point of said pond being located at a point approximately 1,815 feet from the west section line and 2,285 feet from the south section line of said Section 5. Cottonwood hereby seeks approval to use Rueter-Hess Reservoir, Chambers Reservoir, Denver Basin aquifer storage recharge and recovery, or another reservoir in lieu of storage in the effluent pond used under the 81CW142 decree. Cottonwood will use Rueter-Hess Reservoir, Chambers Reservoir and/or other storage facilities to store Cottonwood’s reusable and fully consumable water rights for subsequent beneficial uses, including but not limited to municipal, augmentation and exchange purposes. Among other storage facilities, Cottonwood may store any reusable and fully consumable water by Denver Basin aquifer recharge and recovery, in compliance with the State Engineer’s Denver Basin Artificial Recharge Extraction Rules, 2 C.C.R. 402-11, as they may be amended. Rueter-Hess Reservoir, Chambers Reservoir and/or

such other storage facilities may be filled with Cottonwood’s reusable tributary, nontributary and not nontributary sources described herein, either by direct diversion or by exchange. Any water stored in exchange for or by substitution of the reusable sources of water described herein may be used, reused, successively used and otherwise disposed of to extinction by Cottonwood. Cottonwood seeks the right to store its reusable sources in Rueter-Hess Reservoir, Chambers Reservoir and/or such other storage facilities for: (1) subsequent release to Cherry Creek and/or Happy Canyon Creek as a replacement source hereunder; (2) subsequent irrigation of park and recreation or other lands, with the right to recapture and reuse to extinction any fully consumable return flows therefrom; (3) subsequent release for all municipal and other beneficial use of Cottonwood, its customers or other parties as permitted by law; or (4) subsequent use as a source for potable treatment and reuse by Cottonwood, its customers or others, through the JWPP. Change in calculation of irrigation return flow credits: Paragraph 17 of the 81CW142 decree permitted Cottonwood to take credit for deep percolation into the Cherry Creek alluvium from residential, commercial, industrial, park and recreation irrigation within Cottonwood’s then-existing boundaries, from infiltration through RIPs or the effluent storage pond, and to take credit from storm sewer return flows at times when Cherry Creek is dry, and at times when Cherry Creek is a live stream, to take credit for 2 percent of the gross amount of water used outside, which returns through storm sewers as an accretion to the stream. Under the 81CW142 plan, 2 percent of Cottonwood’s total outdoor water usage returns to the Cherry Creek basin as surface water flows without time lag, while the remaining amount of LIRFs accrue to the alluvium of Cherry Creek on a lagged basis. For non-potable water used for irrigation, all the LIRFs will be considered as lagged accretions, without separate surface water flows. Paragraph 17 of the 81CW142 decree also required Cottonwood to utilize certain formulas for the calculation of deep percolation return flow credits and to measure irrigated and canopy areas in five-year increments for the purpose of determining the amount of irrigation return flows on a lot-by-lot basis within Cottonwood’s boundaries, which amount was decreed for use within Cottonwood’s boundaries by withdrawal through the DD Wells. Cottonwood hereby seeks to substitute the accounting requirements contained in the decree in 81CW142 for calculation of deep percolation return flows, with an alternative statistical sampling methodology, using the Cottonwood Curve for calculation of the percentage of water accruing to the alluvium and a Glover accretion analysis for the location and timing of such water returning to the stream system. To calculate the percentage of groundwater lawn irrigation return flows (“LIRFs”) from outdoor water use, Cottonwood’s consultants used a representative sample of residential irrigated areas along with commercial and park irrigation areas within Cottonwood’s boundaries and water use data for all lots over a three-year period and then applied the methodology described in the 81CW142 decree. The Cottonwood Curve procedure was used to compare water use for irrigation with turf grass demand, resulting in a weighted average return flow percentage from irrigation. This analysis resulted in an average return flow amount of 16 percent. For potable water used for outdoor watering, approximately 14 percent is groundwater return flows, plus an additional 2 percent for surface runoff as described in the 81CW142 decree. For non-potable water return flows, the full 16 percent is considered groundwater return flows. Cottonwood hereby requests approval of the above-described analysis and resulting return flow percentages for purposes of calculating the amount of LIRFs that Cottonwood is entitled to use as an augmentation credit under the 81CW142 and 88CW110 plan. Cottonwood requests that the return flow percentages constituting LIRFs, set forth above, shall apply to all outdoor irrigation within Cottonwood’s service area following entry of the decree. Because irrigation use occurring through Cottonwood’s potable water system is not separately metered, Cottonwood proposes to quantify return flow estimates for in-house and outdoor uses based upon the difference between total metered usage through the potable water system during the winter months (December through February) when no significant outdoor use occurs, and during the remainder of the year (March through November) when irrigation and other outdoor uses producing LIRFs occur. The baseline in-house usage rate will be established based upon water use during the winter months, and any water use in excess of the baseline in-house usage during the remainder of the year shall constitute outdoor usage resulting in LIRFs. Total LIRFs hereunder will be calculated based on the sum of such outdoor use through Cottonwood’s potable water system as calculated hereunder and metered outdoor use through Cottonwood’s non-potable water system. A 5 percent spray loss and a 3 percent miscellaneous outdoor water loss for residential outdoor irrigation is applied to the outdoor use component, except that the 3 percent miscellaneous loss does not apply to irrigation of commercial areas, parks and open space. In order to claim such LIRFs, Cottonwood must account for the accrual of LIRFs to the Cherry Creek system. Cottonwood’s engineers have completed an analysis of the location and timing of LIRFs accreting to the Cherry Creek system within the central, more developed area within Cottonwood’s boundaries (the “Project Area”), which will be described in Cottonwood’s engineering report. Cottonwood reserves the right to account for the location and timing of LIRFs accreting to Cherry Creek in the less developed eastern (Crown Pointe) and western areas within Cottonwood’s boundaries in the future, pursuant to the Water Court’s retained jurisdiction herein. Cottonwood’s consultants have divided the Project Area into accretion bands, and have quantified the LIRF accretion timing for each such band with a corresponding Unit Response Function (“URF”), which quantifies the delayed accretion to Cherry Creek occurring from month-to-month within the Project Area. Cottonwood’s consultants relied upon and interpolated and extrapolated from site-specific hydrogeological data within the Project Area to determine the rate of accretion in terms of URFs, which were derived from application of the Glover and Balmer analytical solution for stream accretion (or depletion). Such analysis shows the time required for LIRFs to reach the Cherry Creek alluvium. LIRF accounting will be performed monthly and will calculate Cottonwood’s monthly LIRF credit. Further, Cottonwood hereby requests the right to use any such LIRF credits directly, or by storage and/or exchange, through any of its existing or future tributary diversion points and in its integrated water system or in the places of storage

Dream trip takes artists to Italy Two-week course held at La Romita By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com “Art in Italy,” a two-week course in photography or plein air painting, is offered by two members of Arapahoe Community College’s Art Department from May 17 to June 1. The location is La Romita, a beautiful 500-year-old monastery repurposed into an art school, in Umbria, Italy. This sound like a dream trip for any artist. Marsha Wooley, the plein air instructor, spent a fortnight at La Romita last year painting with another group and enjoyed it enough to recommend a return visit. She will share her expertise as a nationally recognized landscape painter with students who join the trip. They will create both landscapes and cityscapes. Photographer Trish Sangelo has participated in previous ACC study trips to Italy and will help her students document the Italian landscapes, cityscapes and people. Students stay at La Romita and have meals there, but are transported to different surrounding locations, as well as having

time to record the surrounding olive groves at the historic monastery. The course can be taken for credit through the college or non-credit through the Community Education department. Wooley and Sangelo have planned Art 276 102: Trip Preparation with a half-credit. It is required of those who will seek the three credits offered from the travel portion and highly recommended for non-credit participants. It will meet from 9 to 11 a.m. on four Saturdays: Jan. 25, Feb. 22, March 29, April 19. To register for the trip, go online for information about Art 276 101: Painting and Photography. There will be a final critique on July 12 from 9 to 11 a.m. and an exhibition of student artwork at ACC Colorado Gallery of the Arts from Sept. 2 to Oct. 10, 2014. Details are available on the college website: Arapahoe.edu/artinitaly. Estimated costs based on double rooms, including tuition, La Romita room and board, air fare and travel insurance, comes to $5,535. For more information, contact the instructors: Sangelo, trish.sangelo@arapahoe. edu, or Wooley, marsha.wooley@arapahoe. edu. Please call Wooley before enrolling at 720-851-1936.

Water Courts described herein, for non-agricultural irrigation, commercial, industrial and all municipal uses, including but not limited to domestic, mechanical, manufacturing, industrial, power generation, fire protection, sewage treatment, street sprinkling, irrigation of lawns, gardens, grounds, golf courses, parks and open spaces, recreation, piscatorial, maintenance and preservation of wildlife and aesthetic values, lake and reservoir evaporation, augmentation and/or replacement, storage, including aquifer storage recharge and recovery, adjustment and regulation of Cottonwood’s integrated water system, including, without limitation, maintenance of adequate storage reserves and further water exchanges, with such credits being usable either within Cottonwood’s boundaries, as they presently exist or as they may be modified in the future, or outside of them, by Cottonwood, its customers or others pursuant to decree, administrative approval, contract, agreement or other lawful arrangement. With respect to any substitution and/or exchange of reusable and fully consumable sources for non-reusable and non-consumable sources, Cottonwood seeks to reuse and consume the water used to the same extent as it is entitled to reuse and consume the sources of substitute supply given in replacement or exchange, and will do so by direct use, storage and subsequent release, reuse, successive use, further exchange and disposition. Following one or more uses, Cottonwood may use such reusable and fully consumable water as a substitute supply and to meet the replacement or other obligations for any of its decreed water rights. Return flows derived from Cottonwood’s reusable sources described herein shall be fully consumable by Cottonwood or others, and may be reused and successively used to extinction. Cottonwood retains and will retain dominion and control over its tributary consumptive use, nontributary and not nontributary reusable sources until such water has been used, reused and successively used to extinction. Diversions under each water source described herein into Cottonwood’s integrated water system and deliveries to each tap within or outside of Cottonwood’s boundaries, including irrigation taps for areas such as parks, open space and golf courses, are separately metered. Return flows can therefore be allocated between reusable and fully consumable sources and other sources of water, tributary or otherwise, available to Cottonwood hereunder. Cottonwood claims LIRFs from reusable water applied prior to this application that are now accruing to Cherry Creek as well as LIRFs that result from future application. Use of water treatment plant as plan component: Cottonwood and ACWWA jointly constructed the JWPP water treatment plant, which is located in the SW1/4 of Section 32, Township 5 South, Range 66 West of the 6th P.M., Dove Valley V Filing No. 2, Lot 2, Arapahoe County, Colorado, to treat water supplies of both Cottonwood and ACWWA to use for potable, municipal and other purposes. The JWPP opened in 2010. Happy Canyon Creek traverses the west side of the site of the JWPP. Cottonwood hereby seeks approval of the JWPP as a component of this plan for augmentation to be utilized as follows: (1) Cottonwood may release fully consumable or reusable water stored pursuant to Cottonwood’s storage or exchange rights, including effluent exchanged from the Lone Tree Creek WRF, from Parker Water’s South Water Reclamation Facility, or from Metro Wastewater Reclamation District’s treatment facility located on the South Platte River or other reclamation facilities added under the retained jurisdiction in this case, from Rueter-Hess Reservoir, Chambers Reservoir, Cherry Creek Reservoir, or the pipeline discharge points to Happy Canyon Creek and/or Cherry Creek, and then divert such fully consumable or reusable water for potable treatment at the JWPP through the future wells described in the First Claim above, or through any of Cottonwood’s other tributary wells described in the Second Claim above. (2) Cottonwood may also directly discharge concentrate discharge or treated water from the JWPP to Happy Canyon Creek (or its tributary Green Acres Creek), Windmill Creek or Cherry Creek as a replacement source and/or Cottonwood may treat concentrate discharge from the JWPP at the Lone

Tree Creek WRF for release and/or use as a replacement source, or for reuse, either by exchange under the 95CW276 decree, as a source of augmentation water or by use of the effluent pipeline. As a practical matter, construction of the JWPP was to some extent intended to join the water supply and wastewater facilities of Cottonwood and ACWWA, since raw water of each party was to be co-mingled, treated at the JWPP, and then delivered to Cottonwood and ACWWA. In the event that Cottonwood and ACWWA are unable to agree on the terms for joint operation of the JWPP, they reserve the right to keep their respective water rights separate. The concentrate discharge from the JWPP, like the effluent discharge from the Lone Tree Creek WRF, shall be fully consumable and reusable to the extent that it is derived from, and attributed to, Cottonwood’s municipal use of nontributary Denver Basin groundwater, fully consumable tributary water sources diverted in priority, fully augmented tributary sources diverted out-of-priority or not nontributary sources, or other fully consumable and reusable sources. One purpose of this application will be to permit Cottonwood’s water rights described herein to be used to supply the demands of the JWPP, which may include supplying on a temporary basis some portion of ACWWA’s monthly water demands, pursuant to an agreement with ACWWA that permits such sharing, subject to accounting for such water supply sharing herein. Accordingly, Cottonwood requests approval of temporary water sharing with ACWWA in connection with the JWPP, as a practice of substitution or exchange consistent with Colorado law, including but not limited to C.R.S. § 37-80-120. Should Cottonwood and ACWWA agree on such water sharing, they will coordinate water use accounting under their respective decrees for purposes of the JWPP and related shared facilities, and Cottonwood and ACWWA water may be used in the service area of either entity. In furtherance of such water sharing, Cottonwood reserves the right to request that the previously-stipulated well pumping limits applicable to certain of Cottonwood’s tributary wells, as agreed to with ACWWA and incorporated into paragraph 21 of the 81CW142 decree, be vacated by the decree entered herein, should Cottonwood enter into a written agreement with ACWWA related thereto. Additionally, Cottonwood and/or ACWWA may in the future contract with another municipal provider (such as Inverness or Stonegate) to treat a portion of their water rights at the JWPP. In that event, the water rights of each user will be separately accounted for. Confirm fully consumable return flows: Paragraph 18 of the 81CW142 decree determined that the original developers from whom Cottonwood acquired most of its water rights had, at the time of entry of said decree, retained “the right to use all return flows, to make a succession of uses of such return flows and use the same to extinction in accordance with the decree issued herein.” Following entry of the 81CW142 decree, Cottonwood acquired ownership of all such return flow rights. Such ownership was implicitly acknowledged by the Water Court in paragraph 6 of the 95CW276 decree, which approved such reusable and fully consumable return flow rights as an exchange source for Cottonwood. Cottonwood hereby seeks confirmation of its right to use to extinction such fully-consumable return flows hereunder, including accounting for such use. Integrated accounting for related decrees: Paragraph 5 of the 88CW110 supplemental plan for augmentation adopted the accounting procedures and methods approved in the 81CW142 decree, including any modifications thereto. Cottonwood hereby seeks approval of comprehensive accounting of water use and replacement of out-of-priority depletions under the 81CW142 decree, and the related 88CW110, 95CW276 and 01CW052 decrees. Cottonwood may integrate its accounting with other members of UCCWA pursuant to 01CW184, or pursuant to a future regional augmentation plan in accordance with a decree therefor, and may submit its accounting as part of such a regional augmentation plan. Addition of future lands to plan: Cottonwood hereby seeks the right to have this plan for augmentation apply to any lands included in or served by

Cottonwood in the future. Additional or replacement wells: Cottonwood hereby seeks the right to drill any new or replacement well used in this plan for augmentation anywhere within 200 feet of the decreed location of such well or well field, without having to file an application for change of water right with the Water Court. Use of augmentation credits: Paragraph 4 of the 81CW142 decree states that Cottonwood’s “augmentation credits provided herein are not applicable to waters used outside” of Cottonwood’s then-existing boundaries. Cottonwood hereby requests that any augmentation credits hereunder be allowed to be used either within or outside of Cottonwood’s boundaries, including an expanded service area, as they presently exist or may be modified in the future by Cottonwood, its customers or others. Reporting Requirements / Retained Jurisdiction: Paragraph 17(D)(4) of the decree in Case No. 81CW142 requires that Cottonwood submit an annual operating plan for the augmentation plan and paragraph 17(E)(5) requires a report on LIRF measurements every five years. Additionally, paragraph 23 of the decree in 81CW142 provides that the Court will have retained jurisdiction over the augmentation plan for Cottonwood until two years after build-out of 90 percent of the lots in Cottonwood. Cottonwood requests that the decree in Case No. 81CW142 be amended so that the reporting requirements and retained jurisdiction conform with the reporting requirements and retained jurisdiction periods set forth in the decree entered herein, so that all of Cottonwood’s augmentation plans can be administered together, as one augmentation plan. Scope of proposed modifications: Except as proposed to be modified herein, the terms and conditions of the 81CW142, 88CW110, 95CW276 and 01CW052 decrees shall remain in full force and effect. Cherry Creek Basin models: Cottonwood and certain other parties have entered into an agreement to fund and develop models of the Cherry Creek Basin to be used by the parties to such agreement for a variety of purposes, including, without limitation, Water Court litigation. Cottonwood hereby reserves its right to use those models herein or under retained jurisdiction hereunder, if they are completed in time for use, and to the extent that they are applicable to issues herein; provided, however, that Cottonwood is not waiving its right to use other engineering methods or analysis herein, in lieu of or in addition to using said models. Approval to book over water stored by Cottonwood in Rueter-Hess to Parker Water’s wastewater facilities. As part of the plan for augmentation amended herein, Cottonwood seeks approval to book over to Parker Water Cottonwood’s reusable and fully consumable water stored in Rueter-Hess Reservoir pursuant to an agreement with Parker Water for an equivalent amount of reusable and fully consumable water delivered into Cherry Creek at one or more of Parker Water’s wastewater treatment plants, and any other discharge points that Parker Water may establish in the future. Parker Water’s existing wastewater treatment facilities discharge into Sulphur Gulch at a point or points located within the SE1/4 NE1/4 of Section 21, Township 6 South, Range 66 West and located approximately 720 feet west of the east section line and 1,780 feet south of the north section line, and/or the SW1/4 NW1/4 of Section 22, Township 6 South, Range 66 West of the 6th P.M. in Douglas County. Use of aquifer storage water. The District will add to the augmentation plans aquifer storage and recharge (“ASR”) to the Denver Basin aquifers through the nontributary wells listed in the application, along with any other legally permitted nontributary wells of the District, pursuant to the Denver Basin Artificial Recharge Extraction Rules, as amended or supplemented, with water from any fully consumable and reusable water lawfully captured, possessed and controlled by the District for storage in ASR, including, without limitation, the WISE water, for subsequent withdrawal and application to beneficial use. Water stored by ASR and subsequently extracted may be used for any legally permissible use, including all existing and future uses of Cottonwood, its customers and others, within and outside Cottonwood’s boundaries, and are intended to be used in Cottonwood’s

integrated water system for all municipal and other beneficial uses, including, but not limited to, domestic, agricultural, industrial, commercial, irrigation, stockwatering, fire protection, recreation, fish and wildlife preservation and propagation, augmentation and exchange purposes, the replacement of depletions resulting from the use of water from other sources, either by immediate application or by storage for subsequent use. Such water may also be used extraterritorially pursuant to contract, agreement or other lawful arrangement, including but not limited to water exchanges or water sharing with other persons or entities under the 01CW284 decree or otherwise. Integrated water system: The new ASR storage right requested herein will be part of a single “project or integrated water system” within the meaning of C.R.S. § 37 92 301(4)(b), such that work on any feature of Cottonwood’s integrated water system shall be considered in finding in the future that reasonable diligence has been shown in the development of any and all water rights for that entire system. Proposed operation of modified augmentation plan: Under the 81CW142 augmentation plan, as supplemented by the 88CW110, 95CW276 and 01CW052 decrees, Cottonwood primarily diverts tributary, nontributary and not nontributary wells in order to supply municipal and other demands, and replaces by substitution and/or exchange any out-of-priority depletions from said tributary diversions with consumptive use credits available from transferred senior surface water rights, wastewater treatment plant return flows, LIRFs and direct discharges of nontributary groundwater or not nontributary groundwater into the stream system. Cottonwood’s present water demands are supplied through diversions of tributary and nontributary (Arapahoe formation) wells. In average and dry years, Cottonwood must supplement its tributary diversions with nontributary diversions and not nontributary diversions in order to meet demands and replace out-of-priority depletions to the stream system. This application largely continues such operation with some modifications. Existing and future water demands, including any such demands occurring outside of Cottonwood’s boundaries, are and will be supplied through an integrated water system utilizing the tributary, nontributary and not nontributary sources described in the First and Second Claims above, which are incorporated herein by this reference. Sewer service is provided through a central wastewater collection system, with treatment occurring at the Lone Tree Creek WRF. While an operational objective of Cottonwood has been and will continue to be to maximize the use of tributary groundwater in meeting demands, consistent with Cottonwood’s water quality goals, and to conserve non-renewable nontributary and not nontributary sources from the Denver basin aquifers, Cottonwood seeks to confirm its right to make direct discharges of not nontributary and nontributary water to the stream system as a replacement source hereunder. Another operational objective of Cottonwood will be to promote the maximum use of its existing and future reusable sources, including nontributary, not nontributary and tributary consumptive use sources, by direct diversion, storage and/or exchange for reuse and successive use to the maximum extent permissible, including, without limitation, aquifer storage recharge and recovery. Cottonwood hereby requests approval of a modified plan for augmentation to provide for comprehensive accounting of all water uses, accounting of all reusable and fully consumable return flows to the Cherry Creek Basin after use or successive use, accounting of all out-of-priority diversions with replacement of all resulting out-of-priority depletions, and substitutions and exchanges of water to facilitate such replacement and reuse. For purposes of this application, “depletions” shall mean the delayed effect of well pumping on Cherry Creek minus return flow, while “out-of-priority depletions” shall mean depletions junior to the then-prevailing water call, if any, on Cherry Creek or the South Platte River. Cottonwood’s integrated municipal water supply system consists of several subsystems, including separate raw water, potable, effluent reuse and non-potable pipelines and related facilities. Cottonwood’s water system is being

constructed with dedicated pipelines for non-potable irrigation and potable uses, respectively, which uses will be separately metered and accounted for by Cottonwood hereunder. Use of Cottonwood’s water system components and the general operation of the modified augmentation plan are described below: Potable Use: The consumptive use of in-house potable water use through Cottonwood’s integrated municipal water supply system will be approximately 5 percent. Cottonwood’s potable water system will be supplied with both tributary and Denver Basin water treated at the JWPP, water diverted and separately treated under Cottonwood’s existing and future tributary, nontributary and not nontributary water rights, water delivered from Denver Water and Aurora to the South Metro WISE Authority, water provided by CCPWA, and water rights of another member of UCCWA provided to Cottonwood by contract. A major purpose of this modified augmentation plan is to include the JWPP. above as an integral component of the plan. Because Cottonwood’s tributary well diversions are downstream of surface discharges of wastewater effluent, prior to construction of the JWPP, Cottonwood’s diversions of alluvial groundwater were treated with chlorine and other processes for disinfection prior to being pumped to potable uses. In most cases under the modified plan, diversions of tributary groundwater by Cottonwood, including diversions pursuant to the claimed tributary well structures described in the First Claim above, are expected to typically be delivered through dedicated raw water pipelines in Cottonwood’s system to the JWPP for treatment, and then will be delivered through Cottonwood’s dedicated potable water pipelines for subsequent potable, outdoor or other use. Cottonwood’s tributary groundwater rights to be used to supply the JWPP may be operated in a coordinated fashion with ACWWA’s tributary groundwater rights, under a future agreement with ACWWA, to ensure sufficient raw water supplies for the JWPP to meet both parties’ needs, which may involve, as claimed herein, the temporary use and sharing of Cottonwood’s water rights described above by ACWWA through the JWPP and other shared facilities. In the event of a water quality or quantity problem with tributary groundwater or for other reasons, Cottonwood may use nontributary or not nontributary groundwater or reuse water to supply the JWPP. Treated Effluent Reuse: Cottonwood seeks to reuse treated effluent in two ways: (1) by direct reuse of treated effluent for irrigation or other non-potable purposes; and (2) by indirect reuse of treated effluent through direct discharge to the stream for replacement or augmentation purposes and/or tributary groundwater recharge for subsequent potable or other purposes. Regarding the latter, treated effluent from the Lone Tree Creek WRF will be discharged to Lone Tree Creek, Happy Canyon Creek and/or Cherry Creek to supplement flows during dry times and/or land applied to recharge the Cherry Creek and/or Happy Canyon Creek alluviums upstream of Cottonwood’s tributary groundwater wells, with the effluent being delivered upstream through either the effluent pipeline or under the 95CW276 exchange as amended herein, for subsequent diversion and recapture by Cottonwood’s tributary groundwater wells for beneficial use, including but not limited to storage, reuse and successive use to extinction. Such exchange of treated effluent shall occur only under live-stream conditions in Cherry Creek, except as otherwise permitted under the decree herein or subsequent decree. When dry stream conditions exist, Cottonwood will typically discharge the effluent to Lone Tree Creek and/or utilize the effluent pipeline to discharge effluent at one or more of the upstream points identified herein and/or put the effluent into storage in one or more of the reservoirs described herein. Cottonwood will account for the time lags and any losses associated with such tributary aquifer recharge and, if necessary, will undertake aquifer monitoring procedures to confirm the adequacy of such safeguards. The waste concentrate stream from the JWPP will be treated through microfiltration or other appropriate processes and then will either be (a) discharged to Windmill Creek under an NPDES permit at a location in the

NE1/4 NW1/4 of Section 31, Township 5 South, Range 66 West of the 6th P.M., Arapahoe County, Colorado, at a point approximately 985 feet from the north section line and 1,655 feet from the west section line of said Section 31 or points of discharge to Happy Canyon Creek; (b) conveyed into the Lone Tree Creek WRF for treatment and discharge; or (c) disposed of through other legally permitted process, such as deep injection. The underflow waste created from treatment of the JWPP waste concentrate stream will typically be gravity piped in the sewer collection system to the Lone Tree Creek WRF for further treatment. The amount of concentrate discharge produced by the JWPP depends on the water treatment process employed at the JWPP and may range from 2 percent to 23 percent. Cottonwood seeks approval of the concentrate discharge from the JWPP as a reusable return flow credit hereunder, subject to Cottonwood accounting for the lagged returns thereof and any losses associated therewith. Non-Potable Irrigation Use: Average consumptive use of water for irrigation has been determined by Cottonwood’s consultants to be 84 percent, resulting in 16 percent return flows to the stream system. Cottonwood’s non-potable irrigation diversions generally will occur through different existing and future wells than the diversions to supply the JWPP. Treated effluent from the Lone Tree Creek WRF also may be conveyed through the effluent pipeline and into Cottonwood’s non-potable water system for storage and/ or subsequent irrigation use within and outside of Cottonwood’s boundaries, as they presently exist or may be amended in the future. Replacement Sources: Cottonwood may use any of the following sources to replace out-of-priority depletions hereunder: (1) previously quantified consumptive use credits; (2) reusable effluent return flows; (3) reusable LIRFs; (4) direct discharges of nontributary and not nontributary groundwater to the stream during either wet or dry stream conditions; (5) tributary well diversions; (6) storage releases of some or all of such sources from one or more of the reservoirs referenced herein, including, without limitation, Denver Basin aquifer storage; (7) fully consumable water rights of a member of UCCWA, of the CCWPA, or of Stonegate, ACWWA or another municipal water provider, which Cottonwood has a valid right to use under agreement or decree; and (8) reusable water delivered from Denver Water and Aurora pursuant to the WISE project. Cottonwood will account for any losses and time lags associated with use of replacement sources during dry stream conditions and will retain the right to reuse and successively use to extinction any such reusable sources used as a replacement source hereunder. The amount, timing and quality of replacement sources is sufficient to prevent injury to senior users. Cottonwood requests the ability to add additional sources to replace out-of priority depletions under the retained jurisdiction in this case. THE WATER RIGHTS CLAIMED BY THESE APPLICATIONS MAY AFFECT IN PRIORITY ANY WATER RIGHTS CLAIMED OR HERETOFORE ADJUDICATED WITHIN THIS DIVISION AND OWNERS OF AFFECTED RIGHTS MUST APPEAR TO OBJECT WITHIN THE TIME PROVIDED BY STATUTE OR BE FOREVER BARRED. YOU ARE HEREBY NOTIFIED that any party who wishes to oppose an application, or an amended application, may file with the Water Clerk, P. O.

Englewood had football glory years State champion squad was real powerhouse during mid-1930s By Tom Munds

tmunds@ourcoloradonews.com Englewood High School celebrates its 100th anniversary this year, and there has been a Pirates football team for more than 90 of those years. There were good teams over the years and Englewood frequently made it to the state football playoffs, but the Pirates have only won three state titles. The school’s glory years in football began in 1935, when there were four returning lettermen on the team that went undefeated through the regular season and the playoffs, besting Limon 46-0 for the school’s first state Class B championship. According to an article from the time in the Englewood Herald, since it was the Pirates’ first state championship game and since the game was on the road, 22 business owners paid to have the game broadcast on the radio. Stands were set up and speakers were hooked up on Al Hively’s garage on the corner of Broadway and Cornell so everyone could hear the play-by-play coverage. The state champions were coached by Harvey Riddle. The squad used an unbalanced line, single-wing formation. Just about every starter on offense also played defense. The Pirates weren’t big up front as the offensive line averaged 152 pounds a man. The team carried a 12-0 winning streak into the next season. Riddle again had four returning lettermen and 30 players out for the team. Englewood and Regis played to a scoreless tie in the nonleague opener. The Pirates then ran the table, winning 10 in a row and their second straight Class B state title by beating Limon, 32-6. The Englewood Herald reported that, as defending state champions, the Pirates got to host the title game. The article stated that

since it was the first state championship football game ever played in Englewood and so everyone in town could attend, local businesses closed down from 2 to 4 p.m. on the afternoon of the game. Englewood football fans rewarded Riddle by raising the money for a train trip and game tickets to the Rose Bowl. The report in the Herald said the fans paid less than $5 each for two seats on the 40-yard line. There were 48 players, which included eight returning lettermen, who came out for football in 1937, the biggest turnout in school history. The Pirates were a powerhouse that season. In eight league games, they bested opponents 220-0. The only close game was Sept. 24 when the Pirates beat Greeley 7-0. The Englewood points came when defensive tackle Phil Kronenberger blocked a punt and fell on the football in the end zone for a touchdown. Teammate Wilbert Dendinger kicked the extra point to provide the margin of victory. Because they dominated their classification, Englewood requested and received approval to play for the Class A state football championship. The Pirates met Longmont in the first round and Longmont won the game, 13-0. However, the Herald reported that on Wednesday of the following week, Englewood was notified Longmont had to forfeit all its games because they used an ineligible player. So the Pirates had to reissue equipment and get ready to play Brush in three days. They beat Brush 13-0 to advance to the state finals, where they beat Colorado Springs 9-0 for their third straight state football championship. The victory meant over three seasons, the Pirates were 35-0-1. Englewood had its winning streak broken in the third game of the 1938 season when they lost 21-6 to Loveland. The Pirates regrouped, won the remaining four games and advanced to the playoffs. But Englewood lost a heartbreaker in the first round as Loveland edged them 20-19.

The 1937 Englewood High School football team went undefeated. They beat eight Class B opponents 220-0, got permission to move up to the Class A playoffs and went on to win their third straight state championship. Courtesy photo There have been no state titles since 1937, but there have been numerous good Englewood High School football and numerous

Pirates appearances in the state playoffs. For example, the Pirates went to the state semifinals in 1956.

There also were a number of good teams in the 1960s, but those teams didn’t go to the postGlory continues on Page 23

pirates hoops, wrestling move to new venue Winter sports will be played in new north gym By Tom Munds

tmunds@ourcoloradonews.com For the first time since 1952, Englewood High School basketball and wrestling teams will be playing in a new location when the season begins in December. “The field house will be undergoing major renovation, so our teams will move activities to the newly constructed north gymnasium,” said Paul Evans, EHS athletic director. “The floor should be sufficiently cured so we can move practices to the new facility on Nov. 20. The Dec. 4 girls basketball game against Alameda is the first competition scheduled in the new facility.” Evans said the new facility is amazing. “We had a collegiate-quality, air spring floor in the new gym,” he said. “When the bleachers are pulled out, the spectators will be seated closer to the floor and the action.” He added that the lighting in the new

The new floor in the north gym includes the old and the new Pirate logos. Winter sports practice and games will be played in the north gym as the fieldhouse undergoes complete renovation. Photo by Tom Munds facility is as different as night and day from the lighting in the old field house. “The new lights are much improved over the old system,” Evans said. “Also,

there are a lot of windows in the gym and the walls and ceiling are white and the floor is light-colored, which helps make the whole area brighter.”

With the bleachers retracted, there are two full-size practice courts running north and south. When the bleachers are pulled out for spectators, there is a full-size game court running north and south. Pirates wrestling matches will be held in the new gym. However, because of space limitations, the wrestlers will practice at Englewood Middle School. There will be a difference in the locker rooms. The new gym will be used primarily for the middle school, and the locker rooms were built for middle school students. But Evans said the locker rooms are modern, include white boards for coaches and will be sufficient for games. The shift was necessary as phase two of the creation of the seventh- through 12th-grade campus gets underway. Phase two is scheduled to include demolition of the remaining high school buildings plus complete renovation of the high school field house. The new campus is scheduled to be completed in January 2015.

The company assembling the tree is owned by Kirk and Jolynne Jones. Jolynne said the family-owned company takes care of the fountain all year. The fountain is drained at the end of the summer and becomes the base when the family arrives to assemble the city’s Christmas tree. She said it takes seven to 10 hours to assemble the 35-foot tree that is the centerpiece for the city’s holiday decorations. “There are five frame sections

on the tree,” she said. “To cover the frame, there are about 26 boxes of branches with 10 to 16 branches in each box. “We also have five additional boxes that hold the more than 5,000 ornaments that go on the tree.” By the end of the day, the crane had placed the branch-covered frame sections in place, the ornaments were hung on the branches and the Christmas tree was ready for the Dec. 2 lighting ceremony.

But there are a lot of variables that can affect the final numbers, she said. “The only way to really understand this is to go online and apply,” she said. “It is a lot to go through.” One tricky thing is that the quote is based on the consumer’s own pre-

diction of what their 2014 income will be. If you qualify for tax subsidies and guess too low, you’ll owe money back. But the site syncs with IRS data, so glaring discrepancies should be caught, said Thoemke. The deadline to sign up for coverage to begin on Jan. 1 is Dec. 15, and the final deadline is March 31 for coverage to start in May.

season because, in those years, only the league champ went to the playoffs. There have been lean years as well. From 1971 to 1988, no Englewood football team had a winning

record and, over one stretch, the Pirates went 0-22. Randy Penn took over as head coach in 1989 and his team was 0-20 his first two seasons. But he built the program and his 1991 team was 7-3 and went to the playoffs. The Pirates made a habit of playing in the postseason as they went to the state playoffs six seasons in a row. They missed two years and then went to eight state playoffs in a row. Their best sea-

son was in 1996, when they went to the semifinals. “We lost in the state playoffs to Palisade four seasons in a row and they went on to win the state title four years in a row,” Penn said. “In ‘96, they beat us by two points in the semifinals and then won the state title 46-14.” The Pirates went to the state semifinals in 2002 and most recently went to the playoffs in 2010.
