School funding measures move forward House passes bills pumping $500 million into K-12 By Vic Vela
firstname.lastname@example.org A pair of funding measures that will provide schools with nearly $500 million in new revenue passed the House with bipar-
tisan support last week. Although the bills received Republican votes, several House GOP members raised concerns that the efforts don’t go far enough in backfilling recession-era budget cuts, or giving school districts more control over financial and transparency matters. The bills passed the House on April 10, with lawmakers first giving overwhelming bipartisan support to the Student Suc-
cess Act. The bill would provide $20 million aimed at helping kids meet mandated third-grade reading standards and adds $13 million in funding for charter school facilities. The bill also incorporates $40 million in retail marijuana revenue that will go toward school construction in rural parts of the state. The legislation will also provide schools
with $110 million of the money that was stripped away by the Legislature during lean budget years. “(The bill) begins the process of rebuilding K-12 funding that was struck hard during the past five years of Colorado’s recession, within the parameters of our current School continues on Page 24
Mountaineering museum honors predecessors Famed climbers added to Hall of Excellence By Amy Woodward
awoodward@ coloradocommunitymedia.com The Bradford Washburn American Mountaineering Museum held its fifth annual Hall of Mountaineering Excellence Gala to celebrate another round of legendary mountaineers. This year’s inductees included the man the museum is named after; Bradford Washburn who is best known for his photo mapping of Denali, the Grand Canyon and Mt. Everest. Washburn and his wife Barbara were pioneers of aerial photography, cartography and claiming the first ascents of Alaskan peaks, making Barbara the first woman to climb Mt. McKinley. “I see it as the Mountaineering Plus award,” said Tom Hornbein, former inductee and chair of the selection committee. “Its people who have made significant contributions in mountaineering and by that I mean really climbing and then they’ve also done something else remarkable in their lives beyond that.” The gala which also serves as the museum’s fundraiser, kicked off on Saturday, April 5 with a formal cocktail reception and a catered dinner followed by the induction ceremony and a presentation from Gerry Roach, “Mr. 14er” who was the first man to successfully climb the 10 highest peaks in North America. “It’s a lifetime story of my climbing big mountains in North America,” Roach said. His presentation, “Northern Heights” took audiences on a trek through Roach’s lifelong climbs of North America’s highest and roughest peaks which began in 1959 and ended in 2000. But at the age of 70, Roach is still climbing. “It gets so insular in our lives; offices, our cars, we’re watching movies or playing games on a two dimensional screen,” Roach said. “I think it’s really important to focus on the planet that’s still out there, there’s still plenty of wild.” Allen Steck, the Silver Fox of Yosemite, was another Hall of Excellence inductee who made many first ascents in California’s Sierra Nevada and the Alps, to name a few.

Walking to remember loved ones, honor survivors
By Amy Woodward
awoodward@ coloradocommunitymedia.com Jessica Ridgeway, Fred Meyer, Cher Elder, Steve Campbell and Andre Nelson. These were some of the names read aloud during the 21st annual Courage Walk, an event that celebrates and honors survivors and victims of crime. Meeting in front of the Jefferson County courts complex on Saturday, April 12, friends and families reconnected during a continental breakfast before the one mile walk to the Courage Garden located behind the courthouse. “It’s like a massive group therapy session that meets once a year,” Earl Elder, a 20 year courage walk partici-
pant, said. Elder and his wife Claudette started walking after their daughter, Cher Elder, was murdered in 1993 at the age of 20. “We are strong, we are not going to be victims anymore; we are going to be survivors.” New participants in the walk included Jessica Ridgeway’s parents; Sarah Ridgeway and Jeremiah Bryant. This year’s walk was dedicated to children where a bird bath was added to the kid’s section in the Courage Garden, a memorial garden for victims of crime. “Nothing that you ever put into children is ever wasted,” said Vista Exline, director of Victim Outreach, Inc. and founder of the Courage Walk. A total of $3,281 was raised during this year’s remembrance walk that will go to help develop the garden and toward training for victim advocates
volunteers. “They’re angels,” Elder said about Victims Outreach, Inc. “It’s a wonderful organization, I think what people need to know is 1 in 3 people that they serve are children.” After supporters completed their walk and gathered behind the courthouse, over 15 names were read aloud followed by a dove release. “This really is to the wonder of the human spirit,” said Peter Weir, Jeffco district attorney. “These people will never be forgotten.” To help victims in the community, send donations to Victim Outreach, Inc. at P.O. Box 5173, Golden, CO 80401. To become a volunteer victim advocate, please contact Susan Sylvester, sheriff’s office victim services advocate, at 720497-724.

Portrait of peace a work in progress The lyrics drift softly through the quiet, cobblestoned courtyard. “Good day, sunshine good day, sunshine gooood day, sunshine…” A youngish man with vivid blue eyes, in faded jeans and black velvet jacket, strums a guitar and sings, the music stand in front of him holding a repertoire of Beatles songs, at his feet a black hat for donations from appreciative listeners. He seems oblivious to the people milling around, hearing only the melodies and words that lift him beyond the wall that stretches behind. But the wall, which is why he is here, can’t be ignored. It is a psychedelic, graphic explosion of color, an ever-changing riot of words and swirling graffiti’s reason for being has been long buried under more than 30 years of layers of paint. For those who remember, though, like Jan, 36, the guitarist who wouldn’t give his last name, the wall, just across from the French Embassy in Prague, is testament to the energizing and lasting power of the universal ideal of peace — even if the passage of time has somewhat obscured the message. The Lennon Wall. Also known as the Peace Wall. Or the Graffiti Wall. “It’s really getting twisted,” Jan says of how the wall is viewed by thousands who visit each year. “It bothers the local people — they don’t like the way it is now… But I’m sure John Lennon would like it this way. I don’t think he would have liked to have his face on it.” That’s how the wall, the phenomenon,
started — with an immense portrait of John Lennon following his death on Dec. 8, 1980. Depending on the source, either an art student from Mexico or a group of students painted his face on the wall that forms the back of a 14th century churchyard. The wall also had a recessed niche that resembled a tombstone and became a mock grave, of sorts, for Lennon. Although the ex-Beatle never visited the Czech Republic, many young Czechs, living under the then-Communist regime, quickly built him into a pacifist hero for their cause. At that time, the government had banned western pop songs, even sending some Czech musicians to jail for playing them, according to a website about the wall. In the beginning, people scrawled Beatles lyrics and epitaphs to Lennon under cover of night. In the light of day, police whitewashed the walls, only to have them covered again in words at night. Over time, the wall became a voice for the young Czech opposition; some created a movement called “Lennonism.” They used the wall as a medium for their grievances and painted political slogans against the government, always at night. Police continued to obliterate their efforts during the day.
The battle on the wall continued until the Velvet Revolution that led to the fall of Communism in 1989. Since then, the wall has become a popular tourist destination. Although many phrases reflect the pleas for love and goodwill that Lennon championed, Beatles lyrics and sayings of social and political justice have been replaced in good measure with such commonplace scrawls as “Filmore was here” and “Auntie Mary was here” and the over-sized “Happy Birthday, HRABAL!” repeated several times along the wall’s length in white spray LOG ON & paint. And “Fred” spread VOTE TODAY! wide in OR COMPLETE THE chubby, green BALLOT ON PAGE 32 bubble letters. The original message, for many, seems long forgotten. But for some, the wall is a living, breathing, morphing work of art of which Lennon would surely have approved. Nate Margolis, 21, an art student from Maryland studying this semester in Prague, has visited several times. Today, he spray paints an eye on the wall in silvergray. “This is kind of a new revolution of art,” he says, noting it’s one of the few places in the world for legal graffiti. “It changes. In 15 minutes, it’ll probably be something completely different.” Kayleigh McAdams, 20, who is visiting Margolis and was a huge Beatles fan as a child, felt it was important to see the wall
is ! Back
and leave something significant behind. Near the sidewalk, she painted “Infinitum Nihil,” Latin for “nothing is forever,” as she interprets it. The saying, representative of past events in her life, is tattooed on her right foot. “It’s just a meaningful thing that I try to live by each day,” she says, hoping “somebody will actually be able to read it and know what it means.” Jan, the guitarist, has sung at the wall for the past three tourist seasons. The season depends on the weather — the nicer it is, the longer the season. Last year, the cold stayed away and he played and sang for eight months. He has loved Beatles music since he was a boy. “It’s my favorite band,” he says simply. “I like the vibe…” As a Prague native, he has watched the wall’s evolution. It could be no other way than how it is today, he says. Free. Open to anyone to paint anything. “It’s the only way you can keep it,” he says. “Otherwise, it would be a museum with John Lennon’s face and rope. It would be … boring.” But if he could give those who visit a thought to leave with, it would be this: “Give peace a chance, in your mind, in your mind … it’s not always easy.” On this day, as sunlight filters through trees just beginning to leaf, “Love is a beautiful chaos” leaps from the wall in bold, red paint. And if you look closely, you’ll spot a blue face of John Lennon in a corner. No matter what is painted, Margolis says, Lennon’s face can always be found amid the crazy quilt of expression, a soft and subtle reminder of why the wall even exists. A throng of tourists suddenly crowds the small courtyard, jostling to read the wall and leave their inscriptions. Jan, an unperturbed island in the middle, begins to sing: “You may say I’m a dreamer,

education news Increase in costs for student meals
The cost of breakfast and lunch in Jefferson County will increase by 25 cents to accommodate additional servings of fruit and vegetables. The Healthy, Hunger Free Kids Act of 2010 requires districts to add more fruit and vegetable options to their menus increasing the total cost of the meal. In the 2014-2015 school year, elemen-
tary school breakfast will cost $1.75, lunch $2.75; Secondary breakfast will cost $2.00, lunch $3.25. This change is similar to ones throughout the state, including districts around the Denver-Metro area.

HDR Imaging — Raising the Bar on Real Estate’s #1 Tool, Photography
By JIM SMITH, Realtor ®
Survey after survey has proven that the number and quality of photographs makes the biggest difference when it comes to marketing real estate listings. There is wide variation in what listing agents are willing to spend on this important aspect of their marketing. At one end of the spectrum are agents who use their smartphone or a point-and-shoot digital camera. At the other end are agents who hire a professional photographer to shoot still photos, and even a videographer to create a video tour. For Golden Real Estate, I’ve chosen to do both tasks in-house and have, over time, increased the quality of our equipment. After starting with a point-and-shoot camera, I upgraded to a Nikon digital SLR with a wide angle lens and flash attachment for interior pictures and a couple telephoto lenses for exterior views such as of mountain peaks and city lights. Then I discovered HDR, which
stands for High Dynamic Range photography. At last November’s Realtor convention in San Francisco I invested in a system which adds this capability to our Nikon camera. At right are matched photos of the same scenes. Both were shot with the same Nikon camera, but the ones on the right were created applying HDR technology. Each HDR photograph is a software-generated composite of multiple exposures, with the software choosing the best exposure for each element of the photograph. As a result, I obtain both good outdoor views through windows and perfect “lighting” on each interior element. There is no flash used. Instead, the camera, mounted on a tripod, takes nine separate exposures using only available light. At first, I figured that HDR imaging was only necessary for scenes which include a window, but I’ve come to realize that all interior and even some exterior scenes can
benefit from this proWITHOUT USING HDR USING HDR cess. Although the difference in the windows is most striking, notice the extra detail obtained from interior elements such as furniture and light fixtures. To help you more fully appreciate the quality of the HDR photos, I have posted these and additional examples at JimSmithBlog.com. It takes special equipment and special software to take these pictures. It also takes some training, so instead of just making the equipment available to all Golden Real Estate Jim Smith agents, I made the deciBroker/Owner sion to have the person Golden Real Estate, Inc. who has mastered the process take the phoDIRECT: 303-525-1851 tos of each agent’s EMAIL: Jim@GoldenRealEstate.com listings, free. 17695 South Golden Road, Golden 80401 (continued online) Serving the West Metro Area COMMENT AT: www.JimSmithBlog.com

awoodward@ coloradocommunitymedia.com Standing on the corner of Ford and 14th streets, the Christian Action Guild has been providing food and clothing to Golden’s families in need for 45 years. But after four and a half decades of providing food and discounted merchandise, directors at CAG are planning an open house to reconnect with the business community in order to help reestablish CAG’s presence in Golden and expand their services. “People don’t know we’re here,” said Joyce Sutton, president of CAG. “It seems we’ve been a little bit more isolated than I realized.” CAG provides a food pantry that is funded through the guild’s thrift shop which offers more than discounted clothing and books; they have three boxes full of mason jars that would suit any canning aficionado. The organization is a non-denominational nonprofit run entirely by volunteers and funded yearly by the Golden Civic Foundation. The open house will serve as a meet and greet for interested community members looking to network
with CAG who will have the chance to meet the organization’s board of directors and tour their building. Volunteer Kim Damion has ventured out on her own to network with community members. She spent five years as an executive director at a food bank in Maryland and is working toward more nutritious food options for the pantry at CAG. “It’s a hidden condition here in Golden,” Damion said about low income families. “1 in 6 Colorado residents are relying on services within the community to help them provide meals for their family.” In 2012, it was reported that 28,826 Jeffco students were eligible for free or reduced lunches, according to the Annie E. Casey Foundation, a charity organization based in Baltimore that assists with grants for other charity based foundations. Damion’s long-term goals for the pantry include not only better quality canned foods but also fresh foods that she hopes can be acquired from Golden’s Farmer’s Market. “You can still reach out to the com-
munity for food donations but they can really change the quality of food that’s being donated which can have a meaningful impact on the malaise that a lot of the families face when their stricken with poverty and hardship,” Damion said. When an individual or family comes to the food pantry at CAG, they are free to shop on their own which allows for a decrease in food waste and empowers the individual who is requesting assistance. “We rely on stuff like this,” Kathlene, 47, of Golden said. Up until a month ago, Kathlene was sleeping in her truck until she found a trailer to move into. Living off of disability, Kathlene was cut off from food stamps for three months due to a technical error and lost 10 pounds in two weeks. After enrolling back into the program, she now receives $140 in food stamps a month. At CAG, she enjoys picking out the food she wants. “You can plan meals as you go,” Kathlene said adding that CAG offers “the staples” of a good meal. “Our goal is to serve more people,” Sutton said. “We need to have the population out there in Golden know that we’re here, that anybody is welcome here.” The open house will be held on Sunday, April 27, at 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. The guild is located at 1401 Ford Street, Golden, CO 80401.

vvela@colorado communitymedia.com It took Republican delegates just one ballot over the weekend to pick from a crowded field of hopefuls looking to challenge Gov. John Hickenlooper this November — and one candidate in particular emerged as a surprise force in the race. Delegates who converged on Boulder for the Republican State Assembly on April 12 also picked candidates for other key statewide races. The results included the clearing of opposition to U.S. Rep. Cory Gardner, who can now set his sights exclusively on Democratic incumbent Mark Udall in the race for a Senate seat this fall. Coming into the assembly, at least one gubernatorial candidate looked like a sure bet to get on the ballot — Secretary of State Scott Gessler. But delegates made room for another hopeful: former state Senate Minority Leader Mike Kopp. In a crowded GOP field, Kopp will have the top line when Republican voters fill out their ballots in the gubernatorial primary in June. That’s because Kopp surprised many by emerging with the top vote count among the 3,900-plus delegates. “It’s always nice to have the ‘big Mo,’ “ said Kopp, who represented the southern part of Jefferson County in the state Senate from 2007 -11. “Our message worked, our organization worked. So, phase one is complete and now we’re excited to move into phase two.” Kopp’s nomination speech — held inside the University of Colorado’s Coors Events Center — took on a fighting theme. Kopp talked about being an underdog who takes down “giants” and referenced his own background as an Army ranger who doesn’t know the meaning of the word surrender. “Surrender is not a Ranger word and it’s not a conservative word,” Kopp said. Kopp’s 34 percent of the delegate vote tally edged Gessler’s, who also made the primary ballot by garnering 33 of the delegate vote. Gessler’s speech included plenty of red meat for the conservative crowd. He touted his pro-life stance and conservative economic principles. He also called on Republicans to stand up to

Tancredo skipped the assembly nominating process, instead opting to gain ballot entry through a petition, which he has done. Candidates can either seek a ballot spot through the delegate process or by submitting enough signatures to gain ballot entry. Former Congressman Bob Beauprez — who lost a governor’s race to Bill Ritter in 2006 — is also attempting to petition on to the ballot. Those who sought ballot placement through the assembly needed at least 30 percent of the delegate vote. That didn’t happen for three other gubernatorial candidates, including state Sen. Mike Brophy of Wray, who garnered just 19 percent of the vote.
Gardner prevails in Senate race
Meanwhile, Gardner emerged as the overwhelming favorite among delegates to challenge Udall this fall. By carrying 73 percent of the vote, Gardner ensured that he would have no primary opposition. Gardner — who is regarded as a rising star in GOP politics — is seen among Republicans both here and at the national level as the party’s best shot at picking up a U.S. Senate seat. Gardner has been highly critical of the Affordable Care Act, President Obama’s signature legislative achievement. In his speech to delegates,
Gardner blasted Obamacare as the “biggest and worst government boondoggle in American history,” and attempted to tie Udall to the Democratic president. “The president has made our biggest problems worse and our greatest assets weaker,” said Gardner, who will give up his post as the representative for the 4th Congressional District. “And Mark Udall was just along for the ride.” Those failing to collect the necessary 30 percent of the delegate vote included state Sen. Randy Baumgardner of Hot Sulphur Springs, who garnered just 23.8 percent of delegate support.An open Attorney General seat will feature a GOP primary battle between Deputy Attorney General Cynthia Coffman and state Rep. Mark Waller, of Colorado Springs. Coffman will earn the ballot’s top line after earning 69.3 percent of the vote among delegates. Waller eked out a ballot spot, with 30.7 percent of the vote. Whoever emerges from the GOP primary will take on the Democratic AG candidate, former Adams County District Attorney Don Quick. As for the Secretary of State’s race, El Paso County Clerk Wayne Williams was nominated by acclamation as the GOP nominee for Gessler’s vacated seat. Williams did not face opposition for the nomination and is expected to square off against Democrat Joe Neguse this fall. The Democrats held their own assembly in Denver the same day. However, there were no questions going into the assembly who their candidates would be. Hickenlooper, Udall, Quick and Neguse all were officially nominated at the Democratic State Assembly.

ConocoPhillips invests in water research at CSM
Berry enters sheriff ’s race
Faculty, students to focus on water management
Officially four candidates will compete in 2014 election
By Amy Woodward
By Amy Woodward
firstname.lastname@example.org The Colorado School of Mines received a $3 million investment from ConocoPhillips to start a new sustainable water research center that will focus on energy production and water resources, the school announced on March 26. The new center will be called the ConocoPhillips Center for a Sustainable WE2ST, the west standing for Water-Energy, Education, Science and Technology. “We’re pretty excited about the new Center for a Sustainable WE2ST; this is a big gift for Mines,” said Terri Hogue, Mines associate professor of civil and environmental engineering who will also serve as the center’s director. “It’s unique in that it’s an oil and gas company funding a water center.” While Mines faculty works toward developing a research plan, the initial core of the center’s research will be regional and local water resource management associated with shale gas production and its evaluation on the quality of water it produces. Mines will also implement extensive community outreach and research activities in order to better understand the public’s views and concerns over unconventional energy productions. “The sustainability of water resources in the face of certain shale gas exploration is of critical importance to the people of Colorado,” said John McCray, deputy director for the Center for Sustainable WE2ST and department head for civil and environmental engineering at Mines. “I think it would be irresponsible for some of the best and brightest water people in the State of Colorado to ignore this and not take it on.” The center will be open to students to begin research in the fall of this year, leaving room for ten undergrads and six to eight grad students. “A large portion of the project is centered on educating students in the water-energy nexus and making sure they have the skills to address the social and technical side of water-energy needs and interactions going forward,” Hogue said. “ConocoPhillips has a history of working on the environment impacts of exploration. They are one of the few companies that have put money into that effort with a large water solutions team that has engineers and scientists working on water problems across the west.” In 2013, ConocoPhillips reported reducing water use per well by 45 percent for hydraulic fracturing in Eagle Ford shale located in the western gulf basin of south Texas. The company also established a Water Solutions group to oversee technological capabilities for future water management goals. As research progresses, reports will be updated on the center’s website. For more information or to learn more about CSM’s research go to www.we2st. mines.edu.
awoodward@colorado communitymedia.com Coming in as a write-in candidate, John Berry has been preparing his campaign for the Jefferson County Sheriff’s seat for the past four years, a position that has drawn three other candidates. Currently residing in Arvada, Berry is working as an independent contractor providing consultation to security services and towing, 48 years of law enforcement work behind him. His previous employment has run the spectrum of civil service from volunteer firefighter to paramedic to working for various police and sheriff’s departments in Alamosa County and Conejos County Sheriff’s Department. Berry, who is a newcomer to the race, is also an outsider who unlike
his opponents, hasn’t been previously employed by the Jeffco Sheriff’s Office. It is one of many features that Berry says will make him an outstanding candidate for the position. “I have no ties with Jefferson County Sheriff’s department,” Berry said. “We need somebody new that’s not afraid to go in there and say this is what needs to be done.” His first priority includes addressing the sheriff’s office $90 million budget and high deputy attrition Berry rates which has resulted from a lack of pay raises. Low morale and internal conflict has been an open issue with at least 10 deputies, who are representing approximately 100 other deputies, filing a law suit against Sheriff Ted Mink and the Board of County Commissioners for alleged unpaid wages they say they were promised. “I think it’s a travesty these people have not had a raise in so long,” Berry
JEFFERSON COUNTY SHERIFF CANDIDATES Brett L. Almy, Libertarian Jeff Schrader, Republican Jim Shires, Republican John JP Berry, Republican (Write-in) said. “You can’t tell me service hasn’t been affected.” Running as a self-defined “constitutional sheriff” Berry is not shy about his support for the second amendment and protecting the constitutional rights of citizens. He wants to utilize county inmates for outside work programs and stated that if elected, his office would be one of transparency with an open door policy. He has received one endorsement so far from Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County in Arizona who has been a great influence on Berry. “I’m going to be a sheriff that people know,” Berry said. “No more status quo in Jeffco.” His website is johnjpberry.com.

Rock in Yosemite Valley bears the name of Steck and his close friend and climber, John Salathé name known as the Steck-Salathé Route. Steck was also the founding editor of the mountaineering journal Ascent and won a literary award by the American Alpine Club for their “Fifty Classic Climbs in North America.” Following Steck is the third female inductee to the Hall of Excellence dominated by men, Fanny Bullock Workman who is considered the first professional female mountaineer during her lifespan from 1858 to 1925. She earned the title after her climb on Mont Blanc, the highest mountain in the Alps, and the Matterhorn which borders Switzerland and Italy, another high peak in the Alps. She was the first woman to ascend both peaks and was also an accomplished geographer, travel writer and cartographer.
Gerry Roach, aka Mr.14er, was the keynote presenter at the fifth-annual Hall of Excellence Gala on Saturday, April 5. His presentation “Northern Lights” showcased his 40-year journey to be the first man to climb North America’s top 10 highest peaks.

Educators declaring an impasse Jeffco teachers union and district negotiations move to mediations By Crystal Anderson canderson@ coloradocommunitymedia.com After 90 minutes of bargaining with the Jefferson County school district, more than 600 Jeffco educators, parents and supporters walked out of a negotiation meeting between the district and the Jefferson County Education Association (JCEA) Monday, April 7. The walkout followed a discussion of financials, specifically, teacher compensation. At which point, members of the dis-
trict’s negotiating team stated after recent budget amendments by the Board of Education, there were not enough dollars in the current budget to cover step increases for educators. JCEA members declared an impasse, moving the discussions into private mediation between the two groups and a third-party mediator. “We (the JCEA) created a list of options and none of those were accepted by the district,” JCEA President, Ami Prichard said. “We felt our options were in line with the community survey, and our priorities were in line with the community’s. We feel the board continues to ignore what we need for students to be successful.” In the past two years, Jeffco educators have faced a 3 percent reduction in compensation to help weather budget cuts. During the 2013-2014 school year bar-

gaining sessions, the district negotiated an agreement, earmarking a step increase for qualified employees within the school district. “Previous boards have had a long history of collaborating with our educators,” said Lesley Dahlkemper, a member of the Jeffco Board of Education. “That tradition has unraveled in just a few weeks because some members of the board are not willing to honor an agreement made last year with teachers regarding compensation.” In a statement sent to media by board President, Ken Witt, he states the board has earmarked $11.7 million as a compensation placeholder to honor last year’s agreement to look at a compensation increase. “The district has maintained a budgetary $11.7 million dollar total compensation increase placeholder in accordance with
the expectations from last year, and I hope we are able to move forward to mutual agreement on compensation and honoring the terms of the agreement,” he said. “We are committed to honoring the association agreement.” The JCEA and Jeffco school district have a 45-year history of collaboration, and Prichard said she hopes to continue that tradition and come to an agreement which meets the interests of all Jeffco students. “We hope the district bargaining team and the board will sit down and decide to come to some agreements that are in the interests of all our kids,” she said. “We know our public wants a strong educations system and we’re going to fight for it.” As of press time, no timeline for mediation has been set.

opinions / yours and ours
Whereas, siblings live outside the touch of time “You don’t choose your family. They are God’s gift to you, as you are to them.” — Desmond Tutu My sister was out of town on National Siblings Day, April 10, so I sent her an email to tell her I was thinking of her. “Right back atcha,” she replied. We have shared many such messages over the years, in times of celebration and sorrow, in person, on the telephone, through the mail, and now via text, email, or other electronic greeting. In the U.S., 79 percent of all children have siblings while growing up, and I am lucky enough to be among them. My baby sister, who is 22 months younger, is in my earliest memories … and every one of them since. Gov. Hickenlooper’s 2014 Siblings Day proclamation for Colorado, among the WHEREASes of this official document, that Siblings Day reminds us that the bonds with our siblings are a gift, that it is vital to cherish our brothers and sisters. In
my family, we have always known this. Rose Macaulay, an English writer, says of siblings that we also know “one another’s faults, virtues, catastrophes, mortifications, triumphs, rivalries, desires, and how long we can each hang by our hands to a bar.” From a swing set in the backyard to the larger-scale playgrounds of adulthood, my sister and I have traveled many of these paths together. New York Times writer Erica Goode says that sibling relationships “outlast marriages, survive the death of parents, resurface
after quarrels that would sink any friendship. They flourish in a thousand incarnations of closeness and distance…” I consider myself fortunate that my periods of distance from my sister have been brief and infrequent, and that cell phones and plane tickets eased these somewhat. The author Susan Scarf Merrell writes that our siblings “resemble us just enough to make all their differences confusing, and no matter what we choose to make of this, we are cast in relation to them our whole lives long.” I find this an interesting way to look at my own siblinghood. To many, my sister and I are very much alike. We’ve even been referred to as twins, which always tickles us. On the other hand, those who know my sister and me well would argue for both our similarities and our distinctions – distinctions that, yes, I sometimes do find confusing, just as my own differences must confound her. Yet, as Clara Ortega writes, “To the
outside world, we all grow old. But not brothers and sisters. We know each other as we always were. We know each other’s hearts. We share private family jokes. We remember family feuds and secrets, family griefs and joys. We live outside the touch of time.” In 1999, then-Gov. Bill Owens’ Siblings Day proclamation stated that the deep connection between siblings is usually the longest relationship of a person’s life. I had never really thought about it quite this way, but my sister has. In fact, just a couple of years ago on Feb. 14, I received a greeting card from her in which she wrote, “You have been my Valentine my whole life.” Right back atcha, Baby Sis. Andrea Doray is a writer who is grateful for friends who feel like sisters, and for a sister who is a lifelong friend. Contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
question of the week
What are you most proud of this legislative session? With the end of of the legislative session fast approaching, we went to the Lakewood legislative group’s April town hall to ask what the elected officials are most proud of this session.
“We’ve produced something that is really a balanced budget and have done a lot to help the least among us, with issues like child care costs.” Rep. Max Tyler
“Child care has been addressed this session, which has been great. I’ve also been able to focus on a grant scholarship program, which is really important to me.” Rep. Brittany Pettersen
“We’re doing work to help the rural areas, which sometimes get forgotten about a bit, and I think we have a good focus on education.” Sen. Cheri Jahn
“The budget we just completed I think really shows our focus – building jobs and giving millions to flood relief. We’ve starte addressing education needs, but there is still more to do.” Sen. Andy Kerr

A springtime scattershot Some days, my brain is way too much like a gerbil. That is, completely unable to hold onto a single thought for any useful length of time. So, for today, all you’re going to get is a series of quick hit observations that snuck past my distractedness over the last few weeks. I notice that the Gunther Toody’s in Arvada has closed; at the same time, two new stores have opened in the area: an ARC collection site, and a Goodwill store over in West Woods. I’m not exactly sure what that says about the state of the economy, but it doesn’t exactly scream “recovery” to me. I’ve been a fairly outspoken critic of the public schools’ testing regime over the last couple years, for a myriad of reasons. So it’s only fair that I point out when they get it right: the new regime, the CMAS, is all computerized, which means it will be more useful to guide instruction and it occupies a much smaller space in the learning day. Bravo! My daughter, the 12 year old, had another hamster die on her last week. We discovered him, hiding in his cage and in distress, and we tried to nurse him back to health, but to no avail. Of course, there were tears and trauma. But, by the next morning, she was back to her normal self again. That is one of the unheralded benefits of pets: they teach children about death. No, it’s not anything like losing someone close to you, but it does teach children, from an early age, that death is merely another journey, one which we all must take. And, by the way, no more hamsters in our house, let me tell you! One of the really interesting things we do in the schools these days is “conflict management.” This is when we train students to act as mediators between other students who are having a disagreement. The conflict mediators are trained by school personnel. In an unrelated/completely related news, the teachers’ union
declared an impasse and walked away from contract negotiations with Jeffco schools last week. No, no point ... Apparently, over the course of the next year and a half, there are going to be four lunar eclipses. It’s very odd for them to be bunched up like that, and it is thought to be a portent of big events. All we need now is a comet, a black cat, and a ghost, and we’ll have something Shakespearian. Like, maybe, somebody who can write taking over Hollywood. The publication date of this edition of this paper is April 17. On this day in history, the Allies conducted their final bombing of Dresden in 1945. In several separate “carpet-bombing” raids, the Allies reduced huge parts of the city to rubble, including a fire that burned over 1,600 acres of the central city, and resulted in somewhere in the vicinity of 2,500 German deaths, mostly civilian. Less than two weeks later, Hitler committed suicide and the war in Europe was over; less than four months later, we would drop atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and war would be completely over shortly thereafter. Now, I am in no way endorsing or condoning that sort of wanton destruction — in fact, I rather deplore it. I am merely bringing it up to point out that America did, once upon a time, really fight wars to win. Alcorn continues on Page 11

Stay ahead of the curve with online changes If you have a small business, even if it’s based out of your home, you need to get the word out and let people know that you exist. There are many ways to do this, some traditional like placing an ad right here in the Golden Transcript, while others are more imaginative, like standing on a corner dressed like the Statue of Liberty twirling a sign about tax services. The one thing that has entered the equation recently is the Internet. There are so many ways to work on promoting your businesses via the web that you might think you need a college degree in order to navigate through them all, but truthfully all you need is a little creativity and some basic computer skills to start getting people connected to you and your business. The Greater Golden Chamber of Commerce, as well as most other metro area chambers, has been tied into a series of workshops recently devoted to getting people acquainted with using the Internet to their advantage. They are called Webinars and there are several of them that have already been recorded and are
posted on their website at www.coloradochamberwebinars.com. On Wednesday, April 23, you can participate the last one in the series live. It’s called Lights, Camera, Action! How to use YouTube to bring in more business. This will be held from 2- 3:30 p.m. and you can watch it streaming right from your computer. Just go to the above website and click on register, it’s free. In case you live in a cave and haven’t noticed, YouTube is the second most used search engine on the internet. It’s used more than both Yahoo and Bing. You can use it to promote your business and all you really need is a cell phone camera to
get yourself up there and create your own blogs or even commercials. This seminar will show you exactly how to do that. Even if you are camera shy and don’t want to speak for yourself, there are many ways to get your message across without I know that I spend a lot of time working on web related promotions for my own business interests and found these seminars to be very informative. I’m no Internet Guru, so I can use all the help I can get. Dressing up in a costume and screaming “Nobody beats my big deals, nobody!” isn’t really necessary. Get a friend to speak for you or just post shots of your products. These Webinars are hosted by the Knowledge Group and they already have several of them up on the website that you can also see for free. The titles include 12 Steps to Growing Your Business Using Google’s Pay Per Click Advertising, What’s your Reputation Worth?, Why Market Your Business Online?, Google+ Local Secrets, Beyond Google-Bing,Yahoo Local and Citation Sites, Setting Up Your BlogWordPress Basics, Content That Attracts Customers, Getting Traffic To Your Site,
Is Facebook Really for Business?, Pinterest For Business, Branding Your Business, Mobile Marketing and the Text Messaging Revolution, and Press Release-Tell the World! It’s amazing how many resources there are to help you grow your business, and a lot of them are free. You just have to take a few minutes and look for them. There’s a lot more on YouTube than those really cute kitty and dog videos. Well, OK I sometimes get distracted but the animals playing the piano, but I have my own band YouTube video up and it helps a lot. Again, these Webinars are all found on www.coloradochamberwebinars.com and you can contact the Knowledge Group with any questions at (303) 430-4634.

Two recent lessons on accepting life on life’s terms In the past couple of weeks, our family has faced two of life’s most significant events ... a death and a wedding. My daughter-in-law Tammy’s sister, our precious Phoebe Lorenz, lost her battle with cancer after a courageous five-and-a half year battle. She never complained. She just kept fighting until the end. Words cannot express how dearly she’ll be missed. The void is palpable. Phoebe was born in Boulder in 1973. I cannot imagine her family’s pain. It’s just not supposed to happen that way. As is always the case with the Herring clan, the extended family rallied. Along with many friends, a celebration of Phoebe’s life was held in Longmont on April 7. The church was filled. The music was beautiful. Person after person came to the mic to share their memories. The pastor said he seldom sees crowds that large or tributes so heartfelt. Phoebe’s glowing smile was mentioned by every person who spoke. Her daughter, Karley, a student at Colorado Mesa University, shares that smile. Phoebe had an impact that not even her family fully appreciated.
And now, about the wedding. On April 11, Kevin, Stephanie, London and Logan decided to make it official. Kevin and Steph have been together for 10 years. London Jaye entered the picture fourand-a-half years ago and was followed by Logan Jack two years later. They live in Las Vegas and the wedding was held in the chapel at Treasure Island Hotel. Once Kev makes up his mind to do something things move with lightening speed. What takes most couples a year or more to plan, was accomplished in about two months. Truth be told, I had some trepidations about the outcome. My fears were groundless. Steph looked gorgeous

While my family may not be a biological part of Kevin (his mom, Tammy, was married before we came into the picture) we are related where it counts the most ... the heart. He came into our family while still a toddler. He calls my son “Dad” and means it. That love is returned. The reception was terrific. The Las Vegas theme was carried out to perfection, in the decorations and there were many personalized touches. The food was delicious and the DJ one of the best I’ve ever seen. I couldn’t be happier my grand/ great-grand people, and, for that matter our whole family.

The galleries, 6901 Wadsworth Blvd., are open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and 1-5 p.m. on Sunday. “These are three totally different shows,” curator at the center Collin Parson said. “This is the second year we’re doing the alumni show, but with exhibits from Erick and Wes, I think it really shows how important the arts education is, and how it fosters artists.” For the Jeffco Schools Foundation show, which is on display in the Main Gallery, Parson estimated there are around 500

pieces on display from 23 different high school, all selected by art teachers and then juried by guest jurors. The mediums on display include ceramics, sculpture, crafts and fibers, drawing, painting, black and white photography, digital photography, computer generated, jewelry, nonwearable jewelry, and printmaking. “The Jeffco Schools exhibit was my first juried show, and I remember that it felt like a really big deal,” Magyar said. “Especially since it was juried, you didn’t know if you were going to get it or not, so it felt like a real show.” Magyar began his artistic career at the Arvada Center’s Jefferson County High School Art Exhibition in 1993. In the Jeffco Alumni Exhibition, which is on display in the Theater Gallery, Magyar has the chance in his solo show to expand on ideas that has been on display in other shows at the center. “All the pieces on display here are part of a larger narrative about making a living in society and what we need to survive versus what we do to survive,” he explained. “A lot of these images can be either funny or disturbing.” Magyar’s high school art teacher, Erick C. Johnson, is examined in the Jeffco Teacher Solo Exhibition in the Upper Gallery. Johnson’s work consists of sculptures and wall constructions — he is perhaps best known for the Bottom of the Ninth the neon public art piece on the side of Coors
Field. Johnson said he became interested in how things work from his father, who when something broke down, would take it apart to fix it. “There’s constant experimentation and something kinetic about these things,” he said. “It’s a bit like puzzle making.” Both Johnson and Magyar spoke about the importance of art education remaining a focus in schools, despite the pressure downgrade arts for other topics. “People kind of see art education as a luxury item, but the goal is to teach creativity and innovation,” Magyar said. “Critical thinking is one of the most important things I learned from art school.” Seeing the work of students and Magyar brought up a lot of memories for Johnson — something art teachers all over the county can relate to. “The kids are really dynamic and willing to try a lot of different things,” he said. “I had some incredible times with these students.” For more information, call 720-898-7200 or visit www.arvadacenter.org/galleries.

2014 Good News Breakfast Award Winners Whose Service Projects Strengthen our Community
Abundant Life Community Church – Food Bags for Head Start Families
more than 35 volunteers are tutoring students and helping them succeed in school. Lois’ work has significantly impacted students by providing mentoring, a stable force, educational assistance and encouragement.
Abundant Life Community Church provides food for families enrolled in Jefferson County Head Start. Head Start serves 406 low-income preschoolers and their families. The church gets the food from the Rocky Mountain Food Bank. Church members do all the leg work from applying for the food, picking it up, bagging and delivering it. On average close to 200 families receive a food bag every other week. The project has been in place for four years.
Golden Optimists Club – Bringing Out the Best in Kids
Arvada Wheat Ridge Service Ambassadors for Youth – Santa House The Santa House, sponsored by the Arvada Wheat Ridge Service Ambassadors for Youth, provides holiday gifts for students from 16 Arvada and Wheat Ridge area elementary schools. Since the program started eight years ago, 2,874 families have received gifts for 19,705 children, from infants to 14-year-olds. Partners in the project include Jeffco Schools, Red Rocks Community College and area service clubs. Arvada Plaza has donated space for the Santa Shop. New toys come from all areas of the community. Blue Heron Elementary Student Leadership Organization The Student Leadership Organization at Blue Heron Elementary includes about 70 students and 11 staff members who are determined to make a difference. Students are learning about empowerment and social responsibility through the Seven Habits of Highly Effective Kids. They meet every Friday to work on community service projects, which include clothing drives for The Action Center and school supply drives. Blue Heron has formed a partnership with Vivian Elementary and raises funds to help students at that school. Columbine Kiwanis Club – Family Care Kits When the Columbine Kiwanis Club conducted its community survey last year, member Sandy Legge visited Littleton Adventist Hospital. She learned that the patients who arrived with an emergency receive good care, but the accompanying family members are totally unprepared for the situation. The Kiwanians filled the gap with their Family Care Kits, which include items for personal hygiene as well as pens, pencils, paper, puzzle books, cards and snacks. The kits show families that someone cares during their emergency. Hospital staff has noted that the kits are making a difference, and Columbine Kiwanis will continue this work.
The Golden Optimists Club sponsors three major annual projects as part of the International Optimists “Bringing Out the Best in Kids” effort. The projects are a school supply drive for Goldenarea elementary schools; forensics club support and oratorical contest for Golden High students; and Bicycle Recycle. The bike donation program solicits used bicycles from the community and local law enforcement. Bikes are refurbished at a shop in Heritage Square and donated to youth. Since the program’s inception, more than 6,000 bikes have been distributed. In 2012, the Optimists significantly increased donations through a partnership with the Golden Sage 6 Pro Cycling Challenge and the Foothills Running and Cycling Club. To promote safety, the club distributes helmets along with the bikes. Kiwanis AKtion Clubs – Rocky Mountain Partners and Blue Spruce
Day. Flags are also displayed for special events and in times of national mourning. The Kiwanis Club donates money from the project for Eagle Scout projects and other youth projects in the community. Participating scouts earn money for their camping and adventure trips. Kiwanis Clubs of Jefferson County – The Write Stuff In 2009, a task force of Kiwanis Clubs decided to combine forces with The Action Center to reach students who are enrolled in the free and reduced-price lunch program of Jeffco Schools. The Kiwanis Club of Alameda West and its foundation took the lead in the project to provide school supplies in January to augment the Action Center’s August school supply drive midway through the school year. Since its inception, the program has served almost 10,000 youth, and now provides supplies to students at Eiber, Stein, Molholm, Lumberg and Edgewater elementary schools. This year 2,700 kids received supplies that included 4,700 packages of paper; 14,000 pencils and 1,750 boxes of crayons. It took approximately 350 volunteer hours and $4,800 in donations to accomplish the project this January.
The Kiwanis AKtion Clubs are for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Like other Kiwanis clubs, members sponsor a wide variety of service projects for the community. Since 2001 the Rocky Mountain AKtion Club has changed the community’s perceptions about the abilities and contributions of people with disabilities. It also makes members feel great about their contributions to the community. The club’s projects include fundraising for Windy Peak Outdoor Lab School and packaging food every month for The Action Center.
Neighborhood Rehab Project
Members of the Blue Spruce AKtion Club ring bells for the Salvation Army and deliver care packages to senior citizens and grieving youth at Camp Comfort. As goodwill ambassadors, they assist the Blue Spruce Kiwanis with such projects as Ice Golf, Big Chili and Elks Easter Eggs. The AKtion Club members donated generously to the victims of the Evergreen flood.
Seniors’ Resource Center – Holiday Food Baskets
Kiwanis Club of Golden – American Flag Service The American Flag Service started on Memorial Day 2001 with155 flags along South Golden Road. A joint project between the Kiwanis Club of Golden and Boy Scout Troop 130, the service provides American flags at homes and community locations on five national holidays – Memorial Day, Flag Day, July 4, Labor Day and Veterans’
The Neighborhood Rehab Project is about neighbors helping neighbors address their warm, safe, dry household needs in Golden. More than 100 volunteers help residents with scores of home improvement projects each year. These activities include roof replacement, weed removal, kitchen upgrades and mobile home skirting repair. The program is a partnership of Community Faith in Action and the city of Golden. Volunteers are recruited from throughout the faith community and the city. The Seniors’ Resource Center’s Holiday Food Baskets have become an annual tradition of giving from the heart. The seniors create 130 festively decorated boxes filled with food and gifts and personally deliver them to the elderly and individuals with disabilities between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Volunteers and local grocery stores, schools, youth organizations and businesses help collect the food, provide gifts, make ornaments and even provide treats for the recipients’ pets. Many of the recipients live in remote areas of Jeffco and are hungry and alone. Seeing a smiling volunteer bearing gifts warms their hearts.
Cub Scout Pack #572 – Leawood Paver Project Cub Scout Pack #572 believes in making its school safer and more attractive. The pack members have re-striped the basketball courts and yearly clear the weeds from the baseball field. Most recently, the Scouts responded to a security hazard. Rocks from the school’s flagpole area were getting kicked into the front doorway, preventing it from closing safely. The Pack designed a plan to remove the rocks, wrote a grant to Lowe’s for materials, and led a project for families to purchase pavers to replace the gravel. Pavers are currently being sold, leaving a legacy for Leawood students and families while keeping the school entrance safe. Eiber Literacy Program The Eiber Literacy Program was started in 2011 by volunteer Lois Witte as a lunch hour reading program and has grown into a reading, math and homework assistance program. In addition to volunteering her time, Lois was instrumental in enlisting the support of her co-workers at the USDA to volunteer at Eiber. Now Page 2

She is the first Jeffco Public Schools alumnus to lead Colorado ‘s largest public school system, with more than 85,000 students at 155 schools and many other programs at a total of 185 campuses. As Jefferson County ‘s largest employer, Jeffco Public Schools employs nearly 14,000 full and part-time staff, and invests more than $1 billion annually into the county’s economy. Dr. Stevenson earned her university degrees, including a Ph.D. in Administration, Supervision and Curriculum Development, from the University of Colorado. In 2004, she pushed for a $323.8 million bond package, which was approved by voters. The bond paid for approximately 356 school Capital Improvement Projects including a $1.2 million addition to Evergreen Middle School, a new Golden High School, new Bear Creek High School and Arvada West High School. This was the first bond passed to support Jeffco school facilities since 1997. She helped save the district from a projected $45 million budget reduction by spearheading an effort to pass a bond and mill election in 2008. The measures passed with 60 percent of voters in favor. During her almost 12-year tenure as superintendent, Jeffco’s record of achievement garnered national attention. U.S. News and World Report has continually ranked Jeffco’s high schools on their Best High Schools list. Jeffco Public Schools tied for the secondbest graduation rate of the nation’s 50 largest school districts, according to Education Week’s Diplomas Count report.

golden city council on the record Golden City Council voted on and discussed the following legislation during its April 10 meeting. Council members in attendance were Mayor Marjorie Sloan; Mayor Pro Tem Joe Behm, Ward 2; Saoirse CharisGraves, District 1; Marcie Miller, District 2; Marcia Claxton, Ward 1; Pamela Gould, Ward 3; Laura Weinberg, Ward 4.
Increasing fees for city violations Council unanimously
Golden Business & Financial Services, Inc. Financial & tax counseling - business & personal Tax planning & preparation Accounting & payroll services Budgets & plans, venture analysis, problem-solving QuickBooks® consulting and training
approved an ordinance which would increase the maximum amount of fines for municipal violations from $1,000 to $2,650 due to a change in state statue. Municipal violations include but are not limited to; assault, theft, destruction of property, shoplifting, harassment and disorderly conduct. The penalty provision would also be applicable to traffic offenses. City attorney, Bill Hayashi stated that from his experience as a prosecutor, he doesn’t recall a judge imposing the maximum fine.
Summer brings permit parking in residential areas
Council authorized a new 9th St. permit parking system that will be in place from May 15 through Sept. 15, and enforced on Saturdays 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. As stated in a memo to council, the permit parking system for 9th Street does not include
the side frontage of either 807 8th Street or 1000 10th St. It also does not include the 8th or 10th Street frontages. The municipal code does allow for adjustments up to 300 feet, approximately one block without Council’s action, if an adjustment is determined to be needed.
Blue Canyon Grill requests outdoor seating
Council considered and later postponed their decision on Blue Canyon Bar and Grill’s request to alter and remove the City planter in order to make room for seasonal outdoor seating. The request drew criticism from the owner of Peak Cycles who stated he did not want outdoor seating in front of his business. Currently, Peak Cycles displays bicycles near the City Planter and the request could leave little to no room for displays. Mayor Pro Tem Joe Behm advised the owners of Blue Canyon

state budget,” said Rep. Millie Hamner, D-Dillon, a bill sponsor. The House also passed the annual School Finance act. The bill increases per-pupil funding by 2.8 percent; funds an additional 5,000 seats for preschool and full-day kindergarten programs; and pumps $30 million into English language learning programs. The House passed the Student Success Act on a 51-14 vote and the
Bar and Grill, along with Patrick Foss, manager of Mesa Meadows, to work with Peak Cycles and return to council with a better design plan that would complement both businesses. Other councilors including Marcie Miller, Charis-Graves and Pamela Gould were still on the fence whether to dismantle the City planter with Councilor Laura Weinberg voting against council’s request for a more agreeable design.
City looks to curb annual events
During study session, Communications Manager Karlyn Tilley and City Manager Mike Bestor presented issues regarding special events. Tilley is currently drafting a tier system that would change the way the city charges for events in which some events may or may not be “grandfathered” in. Council members ex-
School Finance Act by a vote of 3926. Lawmakers who voted against the bills were Republicans. House Republicans tried pulling money from reading and early childhood education programs, so that school districts could have greater flexibility in how the funds are spent, with few strings attached. “The school districts said, ‘Give us the money with no strings attached. Give us the money to decide how to use it ourselves,’ “ said House Minority Leader Brian DelGrosso, R-Loveland, during the School Finance Act debate. The Republican efforts failed, with members from the majority
pressed a genuine concern over the city’s 80 annual events it hosts that pose a “burden” on city staff who don’t have enough people to organize events and the strain that special events imposes on public safety where police officers are working overtime and dipping into the police department’s budget. While Tilley requested that council begin to review new events, Mayor Sloan spoke on extending council’s review of “old” events as well. Tilley will return to council at a later date with a definition of what constitutes a special event where council may decide to start looking into which events should or should not be permitted.
Food truck in Clear Creek Corridor
Council met with Parks and Recreation to discuss rules for food trucks in the Clear Creek Corridor, specifically, at the Golden History
party arguing that it’s wrong to strip funding from the programs that need it. “Yes, every school district wants their money, but you and I are responsible about the future of Colorado,” said Rep. Sue Schafer, DWheat Ridge. Republicans also spent a great deal of time arguing against a Democrat-sponsored amendment aimed at providing greater transparency over how school districts are spending state dollars. Republicans offered a softer transparency amendment, out of concern that Democrats were burdening school districts with too

Center where concessions have set up for several years. The concept presented to council included a monthly calendar for approved food truck vendors between 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. with a lunch service at 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. daily. Vendors interested in providing concessions would need to apply for $25 daily or $100 monthly Food Vendor Permit per city requirements. Golden History Museums in agreement with food truck vendors would offer 10 percent off their meals with museum membership. Food truck operations could generate $2,000 to $3,000 annual income to the museum’s revenue account. The next council meeting will be a study session at 6:30 p.m. April 17 at City Hall, 911 10th St. in Golden. — Compiled by Amy Woodward
many requirements. That effort failed. Rep. Carole Murray, R-Castle Rock, a Student Success Act bill sponsor, was one of two Republicans to vote for the School Finance Act and the only one to vote for both school-funding bills. Murray told her Republican colleagues that she understands their concerns on those issues, but that she and others worked hard to “come up with the best possible bill we can.” “This is an amazing product that we have all been part of together,” Murray said.
SALOME’S STARS FOR THE WEEK OF ApRil 14, 2014
ARIES (Mar 21 to Apr 19) professional relationships grow stronger. But you might still need to ease some problems with someone in your personal life. One way could be to try to be less rigid in your views. TAURUS (Apr 20 to May 20) You might be too close to that perplexing personal situation to even attempt to make a rational decision about it right now. Stepping back could help you gain a wider perspective. GEMINI (May 21 to Jun 20) Being asked to choose between the positions of two friends is an unfair imposition on you. it’s best to reject the “demands” and insist they try harder to work things out on their own.

GALLERY OF GAMES
CANCER (Jun 21 to Jul 22) A change of mind about a workplace decision might be called for once you hear more arguments, pro and con. A personal event suddenly takes an unexpected (but pleasant!) turn. LEO (Jul 23 to Aug 22) Romance once again looms large for single leos and leonas, with Cupid favoring Taurus and libra to inspire those warm and fuzzy leonine feelings. Expect another workplace change. VIRGO (Aug 23 to Sept 22) A surprise gift -- and, happily, with no strings attached -- could come just when you need it to avoid a delay in getting your project done. Expect education to dominate the week. LIBRA (Sept 23 to Oct 22) Someone close to you might ask for your support as she or he faces a demanding personal challenge. Offer it, by all means. But be careful you don’t neglect your own needs at this time. SCORPIO (Oct 23 to Nov 21) An unexpected development could put your relationship with a partner or spouse to an emotionally demanding test. But your determination to get to the truth should save the day. SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 to Dec 21) A recent agreement appears to be coming apart over the surfacing of unexpected complications. You might need to have expert advice on how to resolve the situation. CAPRICORN (Dec 22 to Jan 19) Your keen business sense helps you get to the truth about a suspicious business deal. Expect to have many colleagues rally to support your efforts in this important matter. AQUARIUS (Jan 20 to Feb 18) Someone who once moved in and out of your life through the years might now want to come back in on a more permanent basis. Give yourself a lot of time to weigh your decision. PISCES (Feb 19 to Mar 20) Showing frustration over a delayed workplace decision might get someone’s attention, but not necessarily make him or her move any sooner. Best advice would be to be patient and wait it out. BORN THIS WEEK: You are drawn to excitement and enjoy fast-tempo music, with the more brass, the better.. © 2014 King Features Synd., inc.

There will be no proration of taxes, rents or other income liabilities, except that the purchaser will pay, at or before closing, his prorate share of any real estate taxes that have been paid by the Secretary to the date of the foreclosure sale. When making their bids, all bidders except the Secretary must submit a deposit totaling $22,944.88 [10% of the Secretary’s bid] in the form of a certified check or cashier’s check made out to the Secretary of HUD. Each oral bid need not be accompanied by a deposit. If the successful bid is oral, a deposit of $22,944.88 must be presented before the bidding is closed. The deposit is nonrefundable. The remainder of the purchase price must be delivered within 30 days of the sale or at such time as the Secretary may determine for good cause shown, time being of the essence.

All extensions will be for 15-day increments for a fee of $500.00, paid in advance. The extension fee shall be in the form of a certified or cashiers check made payable to the Secretary of HUD. If the high bidder closes the sale prior to the expiration of any extension period, the unused portion of the extension fee shall be applied toward the amount due. If the high bidder is unable to close the sale within the required period, or within any extensions of time granted by the Secretary, the high bidder may be required to forfeit the cash deposit or, at the election of the foreclosure commissioner after consultation with the HUD Field Office representative, will be liable to HUD for any costs incurred as a result of such failure. The Commissioner may, at the direction of the HUD Field Office Representative, offer the Property to the second highest bidder for an amount equal to the highest price offered by that bidder. There is no right of redemption, or right of possession based upon a right of redemption, in the mortgagor or others subsequent to a foreclosure completed pursuant to the Act. Therefore, the Foreclosure Commissioner will issue a Deed to the purchaser(s) upon receipt of the entire purchase price in accordance with the terms of the sale as provided herein.

THEREFORE, BE IT ORDAINED BY THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF GOLDEN, COLORADO: Section 1.

In establishing such fees, city council shall use a rate model (which shall be periodically reviewed and revised if needed) and fees shall be assessed upon each building or improvement based upon tap category and size. (b) In cases where an authorized property receives water or wastewater services from a provider other than the City by virtue of an individual or group contract where usage fees are collected by the City, the system development fee for such service(s) shall be the actual system development fee (or equivalent fee) charged by the other provider. (c) Except as provide herein, all structures must be served by at least one tap. A single tap may serve Multi-unit Buildings and Condominium Buildings. Each unit in a Single Household Attached Building shall have a separate tap. (d) A structure containing a single household detached dwelling may, upon application to the City Engineer, be permitted to extend water and wastewater connections to an accessory building on the same lot, including for purposes of an Accessory Dwelling Unit, as defined in Section 18.04.020 of this code, provided that no separate ownership interest in such accessory structure may be conveyed in any manner. (e) The system development fee for a residential tap that supplies water for a combined fire sprinkler system will be for the tap size that would be necessary to provide domestic water to the property without a fire sprinkler system. (f) The City will not charge a separate system development fee for a second tap to a structure that is used exclusively to supply water to a fire sprinkler system in those cases where the City Engineer determines that a combined fire sprinkler system is not reasonably feasible because of economic or engineering reasons, provided however, that for single household attached unit and single household detached unit structures, a separate meter shall be installed on the fire suppression water line.

Where the residential multi-family use constitutes 25% or less of the gross building area, the system development fees shall be calculated based upon the commercial class fee schedule. Section 3.

tivities for parents.” Downey said that session leaders learn from the parents in attendance what issues they would like to focus on, and base their presentation and teaching on what they are asking about. For Linda Reyes-Quinones, Title 1 director, these conferences are a great opportunity to get parents who may not normally participate, interested and invested in what is going on in their children’s school. Reyes-Quionens said that the partnership with JCMH puts the focus on what parents can add to their children’s education, while also fostering cultural diversity. “It can be overwhelming to work with the needs of the parents, especially because so many and working through some serious obstacles,” Reyes-Quinones said. “This is a great chance for us to have access to outreach we normally don’t and teach parents how to be ‘school-wise.’” For more information and to register call 303-432-5320 or visit www.jcmh.org.

JeFFCo baseball HIgHlIgHts Golden pounds Arvada Farmers still perfect; Look out for Faith Christian By Daniel Williams
dwilliams@ coloradocommunitymedia.com Golden baseball has won two of its last three games in blowout fashion, with the latest win coming in a 19-7 away-game rout of Arvada Saturday. The Demons scored four in the fourth inning and four more in the fifth inning getting big offensive efforts from multiple players. Bryan Katzman and Paul Richy both had three hits and Golden was able to hold off a late Arvada rally for an important league victory. Arvada was coming off a 14-4 victory over Alameda on Thursday. The Demons (4-6, 3-2 in 4A Jeffco) will play at Conifer Saturday at 1 p.m. The Bulldogs (3-6, 4-1 in 4A Jeffco) will at Green Mountain Tuesday at 4 p.m. Farmers still flawless in 4A Jeffco Wheat Ridge kept their 4A Jeffco league record perfect with their 14-9 victory over D’Evelyn Friday at All Star Park. The Farmers scored four runs in both the third and fourth innings to blow the game wide open. Senior Nick Ricigliano who went 2-for-3 with four RBI. Ricigliano also scored three runs. D’Evelyn senior Tony Perreco went 2-for-4 and drove in two runs. Wheat Ridge (7-2, 5-0 in 4A Jeffco) has now won six straight games after starting the season 1-2. The Farmers will play at Green Mountain Saturday at 11 p.m. The Jaguars (5-5, 3-2 in 4A Jeffco) have lost back-to-back games but will host Alameda Saturday at 11 p.m. Streaky A-West ready for league play Arvada West was beat 5-3 by powerhouse Cherry Creek Saturday at A-West High School.

Photo by Daniel Williams The Wildcats took a 2-1 lead in the fifth inning but the Bruins added four runs in the final two innings to hold Arvada West off. A-West baseball has been the definition of streaky this season. The Wildcats have had a three game winning streak, as well as a three game losing streak, and hasn’t even started 5A Jeffco league play. Arvada West (6-5) will attempt to start another winning streak as they prepare for the start of league play against Dakota Ridge Thursday at All Star Park at 3:30 p.m. Lakewood on a losing streak After a strong start to their season Lake-
wood baseball has now lost six straight games. Their latest loss was a 7-5 defeat Friday at Thomas Jefferson. However, the Tigers haven’t been getting blown out by their opponents. Actually, five of Lakewood’s losses this season have come by two runs or less. But the Tigers are having problems closing teams out, which they hope comes to an end now that 5A Jeffco league play has arrived. Lakewood (3-8) will play at Dakota Ridge Saturday at 11 p.m. Eagles soaring above competition Faith Christian continued their out-
standing start to the season beating Manuel 26-4 and 29-2 during a doubleheader Saturday at Manual High School. The Eagles pounced on helpless Manuel scoring 20 runs in the third inning during their 29-2 win. Faith Christian senior Tristan Ortega went 3-for-5 and drove in six RBI, and fellow senior Josh Mihalcin went 3-for-4 with five RBI, plus he scored five times himself. The Eagles have now won seven straight games and look like one of the best 3A teams in the state. Faith Christian (9-1, 7-0 in 2A/3A Metro league play) will host Lutheran Thursday at 4:15 p.m.
Pomona Invitational dominated by FFC on boys side Meet featured some of the best track teams in the state By Daniel Williams
dwilliams@ coloradocommunitymedia.com LAKEWOOD - Fountain-Fort Carson flexed its muscle, beating 25 schools and winning the boys side of the Pomona Invitational Saturday at Jeffco Stadium. The Trojans won the meet in a landslide with a team score of 121, 33 points higher than second place Cherokee Trail who finished with 88 points. Rounding out the top five was Grandview in third with 87 team points, Fossil Ridge finished fourth with 76 points and Poudre finished fifth with 47 points. Host Pomona finished 11th with 28 points. Fountain-Fort Carson shined bright, winning five of 18 events and having the fastest athlete at the event. Jaysean Skrine won the 100 meters in a swift 10.88, followed by Cherokee Trail’s Brandon Singleton (10.92). The Trojans were also winners in the
4x100 meter, 4x200 meter, 4x800 meter and the triple jump. Cherokee Trail won four events outright, with Singleton winning both the 20 and 40 meter diving. The Trojans’ Isaiah Kaiser won the 300 meter hurdles and Harley Korte was the top pole vaulter reaching a winning height of 14 feet and 1 inch. Holy Family’s Ryan Willis narrowly won the 110 meter hurdles in 14.65, besting Fossil Ridge’s Tyler Russell by .06 of a second. Even some of the smaller schools had big days, as 3A’s Faith Christian had several quality finished including Luke Yeager taking fourth in the 800 meter with at time of 1:58.70. In addition, the Eagle’ Connor McCain finished ninth in the shot put with a distance of 44 feet 6.5 inches. Pomona also fared well in their meet finishing third in both the 4x100 meter and 4x200 meter relays. The Panthers foursome of Mile Matulik, Tim Inthavong, Jeremy Gonzales and Chris Marquez finished the 4x100 relay in 44.69. The same four runners hooked up again for a third place finished in the 4x200 relay Legacy’s Braxton Hansen hops, skips and then jumps during his triple jump event at Pomona’s Invite meet Saturday at Jeffco Stadium.

The Wolves finished with 77 teams points, one point better than second place Fossil Ridge’s 76. Poudre was also in the mix to win the girl’s side of the meet finishing with 74 points, in front of Fountain-Fort Carson and Fruita Monument which were tied for fourth with 51 points.

Anderson sat behind
Wolff and stalked her for the entirety of the race until the final second where she narrowly jumped in front of the Arapahoe Warrior for the win. But it was Grandview and Poudre who had the
