Gala bash will help raise funds Foothills Art Center seeking fundraising goal By Amy Woodward

awoodward@ourcoloradonews.com An anonymous man walked into the executive director’s office at the Foothills Art Center and offered the director a deal she couldn’t refuse; he would donate $36,000 to the center if they matched that amount in

three months. The amount had to be exact. If they raised $35,999, he wouldn’t match a dime. He set the deadline for Nov. 12 or 11-12-13, and when added together equals 36. Reilly Sanborn, the center’s executive director, accepted the deal and went to work. So far, the center has raised around $15,000, which leaves $21,000 left to acquire. This year marks the center’s 45th anniversary, and in honor of that anniversary the center will host a gala celebration with

a mass mailing of invites to the “Top Hats & Chapeaus Soiree” on Sept. 28 at the Foothills Art Center 6-9:30 p.m. “We really want to raise the last twothirds in this one night,” Sanborn said. “We really need the community to help us reach this goal; it’s really hard to raise funds for the electric bill, paper towels and parking spaces.” Donations are what keep the center going, and this offer proposed by the mysterious man would help pay off the center’s

renovations, Sanborn said. Tickets purchased to the gala will go toward the matching gift challenge, including any donations and the tax deductible. The celebration will be a stylish affair that focuses on old-fashioned fun with a hats contest and millinery who will be attending the soiree. For an additional ticket fee (also donated to the center’s matching Gala continues on Page 2

Construction nears end at airport Buffer zone helps for a safe landing By Amy Woodward

awoodward@ourcoloradonews.com Rocky Mountain Metro Airport is undergoing construction to meet safety standards required by the Federal Aviation Administration for the airport’s main runway, 11L. The project has proven to be a doozy, requiring the movement of State Highway 128. “We are in the middle of a two-phase project that is improving safety area to the west of the airport’s primary runway,” said Kenny Maenpa, Metro Airport director. “Currently the runway safety area is 600 feet in length off the end of the runway, and we require a total of 1,000 feet of safety area to meet safety standards of aircraft that are currently operating at Metro Airport,” Maenpa said. In the event a plane is not able to stop by the end of the runway, or a plane taking off does not reach high speeds in order to lift off before the runway ends, the safety area will act as a buffer to help prevent drastic consequences. The safety area will not be paved but graded flat to prevent a plane from inflicting significant damage to the property or to the plane itself. It is a two-phase project, but the good news is, phase one of the project which includes relocating State Highway 128, is 90-percent complete. The second phase, which involves removing the existing retaining wall, and building out the safety area or buffer zone will require dirt taken from several sources around the airport, with majority of the earth coming from west of the intersection of Simms Street and State Highway 128. Officials anticipate the project to be complete by December 2013 with some minor touch-ups in 2014. “We’re still going to have come back in the spring and seed the new slope,” Georgiann Dewey, airport development manager

Goozell voted best froyo By Amy Woodward

ith an opening in June 2011, Goozell Yogurt and Coffee has already made an impression on frozen yogurt lovers. This year, Denver AList voted them 2013’s Best Froyo Shop in Denver beating out frozen yogurt chain Menchie’s. “We’re honored,” said Goozell owner Brandon Narva. What makes Goozell the best froyo shop in Denver? According to Narva, it is their kosher certified, and highest rated 100 million cultures per gram pro-biotic yogurt that stands out. “We don’t mess around,” said Narva. “We use pure yogurt, we don’t use any mixes.” Plus, Goozell offers up to 18 delicious flavors like sultan chocolate, Mediterranean mango, and the popular cake bat-

‘We don’t mess around. We use pure yogurt, we don’t use any mixes.’ Brandon Narva, owner ter, to name a few. Even the choices in toppings are diverse and unique ranging from the usual candy and sprinkles to the sought after popping boba which are small juicefilled gummy balls that add a healthy perk of flavor. Narva’s wife Nedine was his muse to start Goozell, which is a Turkish word for beautiful. Nedine just so happens to be Turkish and beautiful. Yogurt is also

a Turkish word due to yogurt’s possible genesis in Turkey. Since the shop has opened, Narva and his employees have upheld traditional Turkish values which honors guests, and holds them in high esteem. “We can’t take all the credit,” admitted Narva who added that it is really the community who helped Goozell achieve No. 1 status. “It’s not mine, it’s everyone around us that gets us going.”

Playhouse part of a great night on the town Although we all think of summer as being over once Labor Day passes and the children go back to school, some of the nicest days and evenings of the year happen throughout the month of September. It cools off a little bit, the fall colors start to appear and our usual summer evening thunderstorms start to calm down. Overall, it’s a great month to plan a nice day or evening adventure. Lately I have been working a lot in Olde Town Arvada and during my lunch and dinner breaks started walking around and doing a little exploring. It’s one of those areas that you know exists but a lot of us just kind of drive by it, zooming up Wadsworth Boulevard or across 58th Avenue on our way to other destinations. Well, let me tell you, it’s worth planning on spending an evening there or an afternoon shopping expedition. Within a few square blocks there are loads of great restaurants and pubs, lots of them with

outdoor or sidewalk areas to sit and people watch. If you don’t know what you want to eat, just show up there and wander around, there are loads of choices. Don’t forget the German bakery for desserts and coffee. As far as shopping goes, there are galleries, antique shops, clothing boutiques and one of the coolest army surplus stores in the area. There is even a leather shop and a custom motorcycle shop in the same block. But one of the best finds is Arvada’s Festival Playhouse. It’s actually in an old

Victorian looking house and it hosts one of the metro area’s most established and talented group of stage actors, the Players Guild. How established? They are now celebrating their 78th year! To kick off the season they are presenting a really clever comedy, “Opal’s Million Dollar Duck” by John Patrick. It’s a story that will kind of hit home with anyone who has ever participated in a local theater production as it revolves around two actors, Desmond and Queenie, who are the stars of a local summer stock company. As they are out searching through “Opal’s Antique Junque Shop” for costumes they encounter a painting of a duck that looks like the newspaper description of a valuable painting stolen from an art gallery recently. The ensuing plot and plans to acquire the painting run into hilarious pitfalls with a surprise ending in store as well. Presenting this play in this setting is priceless because you really can imagine the whole thing happening right outside

Push is on for marijuana taxes Capitol rally urges voters to approve 25 percent levy By Vic Vela

vvela@ourcoloradonews.com

Supporters of a retail marijuana tax initiative held a Capitol rally on Sept. 4, urging Colorado voters to back pot sales taxes to ensure that the newly created industry “pays its own way.” The rally served as a campaign kickoff for Proposition AA, which will ask voters to give the go-ahead for retail pot to be taxed at 25 percent this fall, with the revenue going toward school construction and support for industry regulation. Retail pot sales will soon become a reality in the state, thanks to last year’s voterbacked passage of Amendment 64. The Legislature passed pot regulations earlier this year, but voters still must decide whether they will support the taxes needed to fund retail marijuana rules. State Rep. Dan Pabon, D-Denver, who played a key role in crafting Amendment 64 legislation, said that unless voters back the pot taxes this fall, “we will have to do ocky one of two things: Take money from eduwill cation and other programs in Colorado to with fund this industry, or we’ll have lackluster o the or lax enforcement,” “This campaign kickoff is to acknowll and edge and recognize to the people of Colounexrado that these taxes absolutely must ribed pass,” Pabon said. gent, Proposition AA will ask voters to approve wants a 15 percent excise tax and a 10 percent retail tax on marijuana sales. Revenue from nt to idual

the excise tax will go toward public school construction, while the money collected from the retail tax will back the regulations that were enacted by the Legislature. The 25 percent state tax does not include whatever local taxes might be imposed by individual municipalities. Brian Vicente, an architect of Amendment 64, said the taxes are expected to bring in about $70 million in revenue for the state. Vicente also reminded voters that only pot-smokers will be required to cough up the tax money. “This is a tax that really would only apply to people who choose to participate in regulated marijuana,” Vicente said. “Those who do not purchase marijuana will not be subject to this tax.” Pot tax supporters were asked whether they had concerns that competing tax questions on this year’s ballot could affect the passage of Prop AA — such as Initiative 22, which will ask voters to support more than $900 million in new taxes to overhaul the school finance system. “I think these issues will rise and fall on their own merits,” said state Sen. Pat Steadman, D-Denver. “I think our voters are discerning.” Steadman also said that voters who supported Amendment 64 last November knew that the pot industry would have to be taxed. Proposition AA supporters also said they were pleased with the federal government’s recent guidance on states that allow legalized pot. The Department of Justice issued a memo saying it would not seek to block recreational pot sales in states that allow it,

Jonathan Singer, D-Longmont, who sponsored the marijuana tax bill that led to Proposition AA, said the Legislature made “very responsible and very necessary first steps” in making sure the marijuana industry abides by a strict set of rules. Singer, who worked as a drug counselor at Colorado State University, said that he understands “the effects of drugs.” “I also understand the importance of having the funding available to make sure that our communities are safe and that we

build better schools,” Singer said. “This is not just about making sure that we are protecting our communities, but making sure that marijuana pays its own way.” The package of Amendment 64 legislation received bipartisan support at the Capitol this year. However, no Republican lawmakers attended the rally. Pabon said his Republican colleagues are “on the record” with their support, and also noted Republican Attorney General John Suthers’ recent endorsement of the pot tax. “As we move forward, you’ll be seeing more and more GOP support,” Pabon said.

Departing Noonan, Boggs express frustrations Board members disappointed with discussion and transparency issues By Vic Vela

vvela@ourcoloradonews.com Two Jefferson County school board members who are not seeking re-election this fall blame communication issues and personality conflicts that they feel exist within the body as reasons behind their decisions to not seek second terms. In separate interviews, Jeffco Board of Education directors Paula Noonan and Laura Boggs listed several areas where they felt the board’s work was out of step with the desires of community members. And Noonan and Boggs blasted their fellow board members for making them feel as if their voices were being ignored. “I don’t think I had the support of my other board members,” said Noonan, who represents District 5, which covers the south end of the county. “I felt that made it very difficult for me to be productive.”

Boggs, a conservative District 2 board member who represents the west and mountain area of the district, echoed Noonan’s concerns. “Your vote doesn’t count unless it’s in the majority,” she said. Boggs also said that the board isn’t transparent in many policy areas and that the community’s input isn’t being valued. But Board President Lesley Dahlkemper took issue with those assertions. “I strongly disagree with the view that we haven’t asked for community input,” she said. When asked to discuss whether there were any personality conflicts on the five-member board, Dahlkemper opted for the high road. “As board members, we don’t always see eye to eye,” she said. “But we have pretty rigorous discussions.” Noonan said that the board is dealing with “many contentious issues right now”; chief among them being inBloom, a student data collection system aimed at helping teachers better personalize instruction. However, detractors of inBloom — which the district hopes to pilot beginning in the 2014 school year

— cite security and privacy concerns with the new system. Noonan said during the interview that “the board does not have nearly enough input on the mission of the (inBloom) project” and that “the community needs to weigh in on that.” Through a letter that she recently provided to Colorado Community Media, Noonan expressed concerned that parents don’t know enough about inBloom, and neither does the school board. “Apparently, parents who want to stay out are going to have to leave the district, seek private school, or do homeschooling,” Noonan wrote. “Not great options for parents in a public school district.” Boggs is no fan of inBloom either. And one of her biggest areas of concern over the board’s workings is that there has been “a lack of transparency” on issues like inBloom or the district’s teaming with LoudCloud Systems to provide an instructional data system. “Despite the promises of running on transparency, what I saw on the board the last two years was a shutdown of community conversations,” Boggs said. That’s just not the case, said Dahlkemper. The board presi-

dent points out that the board has overseen forums on issues like inBloom, student achievement progress, and the annual budget, where community members can become more familiar and more engaged with issues. Last month, the board held a study session that included a panel of educational experts from both sides of the inBloom debate. And Dahlkemper points to a recently-adopted community engagement policy, which states that “the board’s policies and decisions should reflect community values, good educational practice and available financial resources.” Dahlkemper cites outside praise on issues regarding transparency from groups like the Independence Institute and the Center for American Progress. “To say that we’re failing in transparency and community input is just wrong,” Dahlkemper said. Voters will decide on three open seats on the board this fall: Boggs’, Noonan’s and District 1 director Robin Johnson’s, who recently resigned from the board because she had moved out of the district. Neither Dahlkemper nor District 3 Jill Fellman is up for re-election this year.

Film fest transforms movie entertainment Annual DocuWest returns for a five-day long viewing of features By Amy Woodward

awoodward@ourcoloradonews.com Some say Hollywood films can be pretty terrible and even seem to be getting worse. Filmmakers seemed to run out of ideas when remakes of already remade films were being released such as “The Thing,” which was first produced in 1951, and remade in 1982, and then remade again in 2011. A weekly arts and cultural publication in Philadelphia called “34th Street” magazine reported 30 sequels and remakes will be produced by Hollywood this year. The 5th annual DocuWest Film Fest instead offers 46 documentaries including genres such as drama, comedy, action, music and horror. The fest took off on Sept. 11 at the American Mountaineering Center in Golden with the screening of its opening night film “Good ol’ Freda” by director Ryan White. The film featured Freda Kelly who worked as a secretary to The Beatles. Kelly shares her insight into the band for the first time in 50 years. “This film itself is really starting to pick up some momentum,” said Wade Gardner, co-founder and artistic director for the DocuWest Film Fest. “It’s just a marvelous film.” The film was followed by a surprise per-

formance by FourEver Fab, a Beatles tribute band from Denver. The fest runs until Sunday, Sept. 15, with a free screening to “Mile … Mile & A Half” as a conclusion to the fest. The film by Jason Fitzpatrick and Ric Serena follows five friends as they conquer California’s historic John Muir Trail over the span of 25 days during a heavy snow year. “One of the themes for us internally is to

really have the festival be a place of gathering and of community for folks to come,” Gardner said. “We just try to do our best to try and set the table for that.” Golden’s own American Mountaineering Center which will house some of the film presentations this year is coincidentally tied to one feature short “Keeper of the Mountains,” by Allison Otto and sponsored by the American Alpine Club. The documentary profiles Elizabeth Hawley, who has recorded and archived every climbing expedition to the Himalayas for the past 50 years of her life. It’s a “prime example of what document films can do and that’s give us the unexpected,” commented Gardner on the film short. When Hawley passes away, her archives will come to Golden and be stored at the American Alpine Club library located at the American Mountaineering Center and will be available to the public for research. “This is a phenomenal addition to our collection,” said Elizabeth Surles, American Alpine Club library director. “She’s a remarkable woman,” said Surles about Elizabeth Hawley. “She’s kind of a singular figure in mountaineering history because I can’t think of any other person who has spent their entire life documenting this and devoted so much energy to supporting this community,” she said. There are a total of 21 shorts films that will be packaged together instead of shown separately. Included in these packages are exclu-

sive documentaries written and directed by University of Denver students. The DocuWest website provides a list of films from feature to shorts that will be played during the 2013 festival at various locations. Some films to note include State of Control for those seeking a political suspense thrill and insight in cyber security, the latest threat posed to U.S. national security. Directed by Christian Johnston of Evergreen, and Darren Mann, the film captures their intent to record protests against the Chinese government in China and Tibet. They soon become the targets of China’s invasive secret police who follow them through China, and eventually back home to the U.S. “A Will for the Woods,” is a touching and inspiring portrait of psychiatrist Clark Wang’s battle with lymphoma and his preparations for death and a funeral through his wish of a green burial, a popular topic and method of burial today sparked by the green burial movement. “The Castle Project” is a ghostly thriller by Brian Higgins, Denver filmmaker and architect, who records his renovation to a notoriously haunted hotel. If pressed for time and unable to attend any of the films that will be featured at the DocuWest, their website is still worth checking out to write down some film titles. According to Gardner, contact info for filmmakers at the documentary’s website is easy to get, and they will usually send you a copy of their movie. “That’s actually how I find their film a lot of the times,” Gardner said.

Food Bank program keeps children fed over weekends By Clarke Reader

creader@ourcoloradonews.com The Arvada Food Bank is greeting the new school year with it’s Feeding the Future Backpack Program. The program is in its eight year, and provides food for the weekend to students at some of Arvada and Wheat Ridge’s top free-and-reduced lunch schools: Allendale, Arvada K-8, Fitzmorris, Foster, Thomson, Kullerstand, Lawrence, Pennington, Stevens and Swanson. Homeless children at Parr, Peck and Secrest are also participating in the program. “We’re going to be serving 1,166 students and that number will be going up,” said Jeff Gage, and accountant with the food bank and co-coordinator of the backpack program.

“It takes a few weeks for parents to get organized, so we’re preparing for more.” Students can sign up throughout the year if they need to, and likewise, if their family situation changes and they don’t need the program, they can stop receiving the food as well. According to Mary Ross, co-coordinator of the program, the idea came from the fact that many students rely on school for breakfast and lunch, but during the weekends they don’t have access to that food. “We don’t have enough food to give them Food purchased from the Food Bank of the Rockies to last the whole weekend, but it definitely that will go to students as part of the Feed the Future helps, and families are able to share some Backpack Program.

Each Friday afternoon students receive plastic bags, which then go in the students’ two breakfast items, two lunch items, two backpacks. snacks, one fresh or canned fruit and one All the food that the food bank uses is canned vegetable.

ies, and arrives at the Arvada Food Bank on Wednesdays. It is sorted into piles for the respective schools, and on Thursday mornings someone from the school comes and picks up the food. Ross and Gage said that the program has really been embraced by the Arvada and Wheat Ridge communities, and all kinds of groups have come out to show their support in various ways. Groups like rotaries, optimists, Kiwanis, churches and police and fire departments have all contributed to the program. Congressman Ed Perlmutter’s office sends volunteers, as well. “It only costs only $100 to cover a child’s food for an entire year,” Gage said. “No one wants to see children hungry.” For more information, or to make a donation to the program, visit www.arvadacfb.org.

Finding clarity on pot a taxing process More than 10 months after Colorado voters approved the legalization of recreational marijuana use and sales, confusion reigns. Sure, passage of Amendment 64 last November made a few things clear: Possession of up to 1 ounce is legal. People under 21 years of age may not purchase pot. It remains illegal to smoke marijuana in public places. But a couple of the most basic questions still need to be answered: Where can one legally buy it? How much will it cost? The first question is being explored by Colorado’s cities and counties. At this point, few Denver-area municipalities have opted to make retail sales legal, instead taking a cautious, wait-and-see approach. Some — like unincorporated Jefferson County — have already decided to outright ban retail sales. It’s possible most of

our view Colorado could follow suit, leaving the state with a handful of “marijuana islands” where pot is legally sold. The cost question is largely in the hands of the state’s voters. On top of whatever price point the marijuana market dictates, there will be taxes, and in Colorado, that means voter approval is needed. A recent rally at the Capitol in Denver urged approval of a 15 percent excise tax and a 10 percent sales tax on the retail marijuana industry. If the state’s voters approve Proposition AA in November, money from the taxes would reportedly go toward

school construction and regulation of the marijuana industry. In general, we support approval of this proposition. It helps ensure the marijuana industry will pay for itself, and helps schools, to boot. But we do wonder if too many taxes could lead pot customers to turn back to the black market. The 25 percent statewide tax from Proposition AA would be in addition to whatever taxes local municipalities’ voters approve. Denver, for example, is asking residents to say yes to a 5 percent tax. The total tax toll of 30 percent could lead to an unaffordable product in what figures to be the state’s largest marijuana-selling zone. Having customers once again turn to the dealer down the street would be a clear example of the law of unintended consequences. But we feel taxes may be the only

way to keep the retail pot business from being a burden on Colorado, something the medical marijuana industry has been over the last few years. The state will have to bank on people’s willingness to pay the price for legality. Even after the issues of where to buy and how much it will cost are officially answered, there will remain plenty of gray areas. For example, many people are uncertain if they will get fired from their jobs if they partake. Others aren’t clear on how much they can smoke and still legally drive. Truth be told, it may take years — and more than a few legal challenges — before all the answers are in. But this November’s election and the actions of local governments in the months to follow should add important measures of clarity amid the lingering cloud of confusion.

Dealing with heartbreak What do you do once your heart breaks? And not the sort of heartbreak that Taylor Swift writes songs about every couple months. I’m talking about the sort of profound, existential heartbreak that makes you wonder if the human race is worth saving. What do you do with the story of Anthony? Anthony is a little boy stuck in Colorado’s foster care system. One week last summer, he went to Royal Family Kids Camp, a special camp up in the mountains for kids in the foster system, and he had a really good week. Until he came “home” and found out that his foster parents had given him up during that week and his next stop was a group home. What do you do with boys like James? Or was it Addison? I’m not sure I ever heard it right. Doesn’t matter — we eventually were calling him “Cinderella.” This is a young man, slightly older than my own son, who my family saw last weekend as we were having a great time at Adventure Golf and Raceway (which, by the way, is an exceptionally good family outing!). The problem of Cinderella, which became a problem for us, was that he was out “having a good time” with his mother and two older sisters, and he was the constant object of scorn and ridicule. We heard, on one occasion, mom say loud enough for everybody within 20 feet “are you a retard or something?” We also saw, later, the family sitting around a picnic table with four ice cream cones--one for each sister, and two for mom. Cinderella, understandably, looked miserable. What do you do with the pictures coming out of Syria? No, not the one CNN decided to run with that was actually from Iraq in 2003 (“major media” credibility, anyone?), but the ones that show the bodies lined up, side by side, mothers next to children, whole families, an entire suburb. 1,400 dead, the victims of a Sarin gas attack, possibly by their own government.

In each of these situations, the instant reaction is to want to step in. It takes a few minutes to realize that an instant reaction to a broken and bleeding heart might, in the long run, be absolutely the worst thing you could do. With Anthony, what? Give him another temporary home, only to have to eventually put him back into the system, one more betrayal wiser? And what happens to Cinderella when he gets home if somebody tries to step in out in public? And the longterm consequences of Syrian intervention are impossible to predict, but among the possibilities is certainly a regional, if not a world, war. Being a man of Faith, of course my recourse is always prayer. But that somehow seems inadequate — so lacking in the “instant gratification” department. I want to “do” something! And then I grudgingly acknowledge that the best — maybe the only — thing I can do is just hug my own children, laugh with them and make sure they feel loved. Changing the foster system is going to take time and legislative focus, and fixing the middle east is ... well, a bit of a bigger fish. But, gosh, wouldn’t this all be easier if everybody just loved their children more than they love control, or their habits, or their lifestyle, or their power?

LETTER TO THE EDITOR The questions with inBloom Jefferson County school district is embroiled in a national controversy around the uses of big data in K-12 education, student privacy, technology security, and the impact of large foundations on education reform. The district collects lots of data on students, including names, addresses, email addresses, test scores, assessment scores, disciplinary events, medical needs, and demographic and economic information. Much of the data is scattered over numerous software applications. Jeffco wants a system to integrate the data. inBloom, a data management platform developed by the Gates and Carnegie foundations, takes data from multiple sources, organizes it, stores it, and funnels it back to teachers through a “dashboard” system. Jeffco is an inBloom pilot partner. Here is the controversy. inBloom will store huge chunks of personal data from Jeffco students and all students in New York State and other states in one platform on cloud servers managed by inBloom employees. Parents worry that their students’ data will get hijacked by hackers. They also wonder why all this data from around the nation will be bundled in one place off site rather than held locally so it can’t all be shoveled out at one time to who knows whom.

Parents are concerned that the federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), watered down by the US Department of Education, won’t provide sufficient security to protect private information. Under FERPA rules, school districts can share student information for research or development of instructional content, without notifying parents. The Gates Foundation has a Secretariatsize horse in this race. The education side of the Foundation is committed to building digital content to support student achievement. The content may be derived from information gleaned from the big data contained within inBloom if districts agree to share it. Even if individual student identifiers are stripped from the data, parents may not want their children’s records used for these purposes. Jeffco school board hasn’t provided guidance on the inBloom pilot, yet. So far, Cindy Stevenson, superintendent of Jeffco schools, has set up a Data Management Advisory Council (DMAC). For now, many questions surround inBloom. With the DMAC operating without guidance from the board and directly under the superintendent’s supervision, it’s unlikely that all questions will be addressed adequately before a January decision on the inBloom partnership. That decision will be made by a board with

Go figure school scores I’m intrigued by a sentence in the Aug. 22 Golden Transcript, and wonder if I’m interpreting it correctly. In the article “TCAP gains for Jeffco,” it says that Jeffco students’ scores “met or exceeded the state expectation of the 50th percentile in reading, writing and math.” To me, this implies that a student’s performance is acceptable if he or she is in the top half of all of the students taking the same test, and that Jeffco should be proud that all of their students were in that top half. But that top half doesn’t refer to getting 50 percent or better on the test, but to the fact that half of the students got higher than

a certain grade, and the other half of the students got lower than that certain grade. The 50th percentile could be anywhere, depending entirely upon the performance of all of the students taking the test. The students, rather than the examiners, are setting the standard of the state expectation, and the state doesn’t have an expectation until it gets all of the test results and analyses them statistically. So for example, if all of the students have to answer 100 questions, and half of the students get 30 or fewer answers right, then getting 30 right out of 100 defines the state expectation of the 50th percentile, and a student getting 31 answers right exceeds the state expectation. What does this “state expectation” mean? Is it a measure of satisfactory performance if the student exceeds it? That he/she can now go on to the next grade, where presumably the subject matter is harder? Or is it just a way to boost the apparent performance of a group of students by letting the students themselves set the standard of satisfactory performance? As I said at the beginning, I wondered if I was interpreting the report correctly. I’d be more than happy if I’m wrong, and look forward to being corrected. Rex Bull Golden

three new members elected in November. At this time, the district is not offering parents any options to stay out of the data collection. National privacy experts recommend that the district manage inBloom as an “opt in” program. The district hasn’t even offered an “opt out” option. Apparently, parents who want to stay out are going to have to leave the district, seek private schools, or do homeschooling. Not great options for parents in a public school district.

14 The Transcript September 12, 2013

West Metrolife

Brenner’s loss is others’ gain

Bob Brenner, the “Extreme Weight Loss” record breaker on the hit ABC television series, was so transformed by his experience on the show that he has announced plans to become a certified life coach to help others realize weight loss success. To achieve his life coach certification, Brenner is partnering with the Coloradobased school Coach Training Alliance to become a credentialed coach. He is expected to earn his life coach certification in November. During his yearlong journey on “Extreme Weight Loss” season three (season four is being filmed at the University of Colorado’s Anschutz Health and Wellness Center in Aurora), Brenner lost a record 253 pounds — or 56 percent of his body weight — through a commitment to healthy eating, regular exercise and mental perseverance. His next extreme transformation is a total career makeover — going from Milwaukee undercover cop to national life coach. Brenner also remains good friends with “Extreme Weight Loss” host Chris Powell. Both guys were in Denver the first weekend in September.

Show makes a move

Chinook Tavern, 6380 S. Fiddlers Green Circle in the Regis University building in Greenwood Village off I-25 and Arapahoe, is the new venue for this year’s edition of “The John Fox Show,” which airs at 6:30 p.m. Wednesdays on 7News. On the first show (Fox appeared via a taped interview because of the season opener against the Ravens), Broncos Ring-of-Famer and all-time leading wide receiver Rod Smith joined 7Sports anchor Lionel Bienvenu live from the restaurant. Each week, different football guests will join Bienvenu and fans will have the opportunity to be a part of the live show. “Everybody knows the Broncos have an incredible hold on the heart of our city, and this is an exciting way for Chinook and our guests to go `inside the huddle’ this season, which could be a very memorable one for Broncos fans,” said Clemens Georg, Chinook general manager.

Valley girls and guys?

Colorado is fast encroaching on Silicon Valley’s crown as the king of incubators for tech startup companies, according to entrepreneur.com (www.entrepreneur.com/ article/227829). According to the story posted Aug. 14, “Four of the top 10 metro regions in the U.S. with the most tech startups are in Colorado: Boulder, Fort Collins-Loveland, Denver and Colorado Springs. That’s according to a report released (recently) by technology policy coalition engine and entrepreneurship research association the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation.” The research defines high-tech startups as “new businesses with a concentration of employees in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math.” Here’s how Colorado cities stacked up: 1. Boulder; 2. Fort Collins-Loveland; 3. San Jose-Sunnyvale-Santa Clara, Calif. (aka Silicon Valley); 4. Cambridge-New-Framingham, Mass.; 5. Seattle; 6. Denver; 7. San Francisco; 8. Washington-Arlington-Alexandria, D.C.-Va.-Md.; 9. Colorado Springs; 10. Cheyenne, Wyo. Parker continues on Page 15

The Opal of our eye

Favorite character helps Playhouse start 78th season By Clarke Reader

T

he people at Arvada’s Festival Playhouse know Opal Kronkie well. The central figure of seven of John Patrick’s plays, the bag lady who lives on the edge of the municipal town dump has been delighting audiences at the theater for years, and now she’s kicking off its 78th year of production. “Opal’s Million Dollar Duck” will be on stage at the Festival Playhouse, 5665 Olde Wadsworth Blvd., Sept. 13-22. Showtimes are 7:30 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. on Sundays. “The audience really, really likes her,” said Charley Ault, Playhouse owner and director of the show. “She’s really withstood the test of time, and we like to do a little more obscure plays because we’ve been doing this for so long.” “Opal’s Million Dollar Duck” was the last Opal play Patrick wrote, and is full of his own homespun philosophies, and funny one-liners, tinged with a bit of bitterness. In this outing Opal (Donna Ault) comes across an odd painting of a duck in the garbage, and decides to sell it at her antique junk shop. When her best friend Rosie (Karen Johnston) comes calling, reminding Opal that her birthday is coming up, she decides to make it a gift for Rosie. Enter Queenie (Lindsay Griebler) and Desmond (Dennis Leach), “stars” of a local summer-stock company. They’re visiting on the hunt for costumes, stage props and any other materials to use in their productions, when they come

IF YOU GO Having just read that the town’s museum accidentally threw away a priceless painting of a WHAT: “Opal’s duck, they put two and two together, and try to Million Dollar hoodwink Opal out of the painting. Duck” “She’s able to see through them, not because she’s the brightest person, but because of her WHERE: Festival kindness,” Donna said. “She’s a very, very loving Playhouse person, and sees no bad in anyone.” 5665 Olde Donna has played Opal around four or five Wadsworth Blvd., times, and is able to quote some of Opal’s own Arvada brand of wisdom on a dime. She said at this point she’s got her portrayal of Opal down, and WHEN: Sept. 13-22 it’s pretty easy for her to slip into character. The show is made up of familiar faces on all Fridays and counts — all of the actors have been working Saturdays - 7:30 with the playhouse for at least three years, and p.m. in some cases, more than 40. “We’re really lucky to have actors who have Sundays - 2 p.m. experience here. As a director, I’m really able to COST: $15-$17 just let them do their own thing,” Charley said. INFORMATION: “I really like my actors to reach into their own 303-422-4090 experiences for the characters.” or www.festivalBoth Charley and Donna credit the words playhouse.com and idea Patrick imbibed Opal with as the feature that keeps people returning to see her. “Patrick really wrote a lot about these down and out people,” Charley said. “The philosophies he gave her are just as pertinent now as when they were written.” For Donna, it comes down to a simple fact. “People remember Opal.”

Desmond (Dennis Leach) and Queenie (Lindsay Griebler), two famous actors looking for props and costumes for their play, come to Opal’s antique shop in “Opal’s Million Dollar Duck.”

Eakins pleads guilty to theft, faces jail time By Amy Woodward

awoodward@ourcoloradonews.com Judith Eakins, 54 of Wheat Ridge pleaded guilty to one count of theft over $20,000, a class three felony, on Aug. 28. Eakins stole an estimated $156,000 from Golden High School where she was employed as a financial secretary. Eakins not only misused the school’s credit card, but also collected money from ticket sales at school events including prom, homecoming, concerts and drama productions. Money collected from these events were supposed to be deposited into the school’s account but instead were kept by Eakins for personal use. According to an affidavit, Eakins alleg-

edly spent the stolen money on a Motorola tablet, a tent, and many DVD’s for a home movie collection reportedly worth $10,000. In April, Eakins was sentenced to six years’ probation after stealing approximately $32,000 from her 92-year-old mother, Dorothy Morvay who suffered from advanced dementia. The incident in Eakins which Eakins stole from her mother’s social security and pension pay outs is what instigated an investigation into Eakins’ work life at Golden High School. Eakins will be sentenced on Oct. 21 at 3 p.m. She could face up to 12 years in prison.

Golden, Faith Christian play dramatic zero-all contest Netminders shine in game that didn’t produce a goal By Daniel Williams

dwilliams@ourcoloradonews.com ARVADA - Golden playing Faith Christian proved it doesn’t take a lot of scoring to produce a lot of excitement. In perhaps the most dramatic 0-0 game in recent memory, the Demons played the Eagles to a double overtime draw Thursday at Faith Christian High School. While there was no scoring to report, there was plenty of action and several near game-winning goals. Give full credit to both schools goaltenders, which combined to make 10 total saves — with several brilliant game-saving goals. “Both goaltenders where great tonight, one mistake by either of them, and one team goes home very disappointed,” Golden coach Josh Nolker said. “We wanted to win the game but are also happy we didn’t lose tonight.” Golden junior goalie Jasper Hughes made five saves — including a game-saving stop he made against Faith Christian senior Cameron Doody in the second half. Hughes has only given up two total goals this season in three games for the unbeaten Demons (2-0-1). The Eagles had an underclassman in net for a Faith Christian team who has already played five games this season (2-2-1). Sophomore Sam Goodwin was as good as his last name would indicate stopping five shots on goal to help preserve the shutout. “Really both teams deserved to win the game so maybe it’s not so bad that one team had to go home disappointed,” Faith

Christian coach Will Lind said. And while 3A Faith Christian does have two losses on their record, it must be noted that both came to 5A opponents in Ponderosa and Lakewood. Lind intentionally creates a schedule for

the Eagles that features literally the toughest of competition by playing teams higher classifications so that his team is battletested and prepared to play the best come playoff time. That is one reason Lind and the Eagles

have won multiple state titles and are seen as one of the elite programs in the state. Faith Christian will play at Denver East Thursday at 6 p.m. Golden will host Denver South Thursday at 4 p.m. at North Area Athletic Complex.

Jeffco football highlights: Bear Creek wins big vs. Green Mountain Faith Christian’s Langewisch scored four touchdowns By Daniel Williams

dwilliams@ourcoloradonews.com Alameda: The Pirates fell to 0-2 on the season but their record is not an indication of how good they have played. Alameda suffered its second straight heartbreaking late-game loss, 33-29 to Denver West, Friday at Trailblazer Stadium. In week one Alameda fell to Skyview, 36-28. The Pirates will try and turn those losses into wins when they play at Englewood Friday at 7 p.m. Arvada: The Bulldogs finally found their mojo in the third quarter of their second game of the season but it wasn’t enough as they fell 31-18 at Englewood. After being shut out the week before, Arvada looked good at times against Englewood, but just could not keep the Pirates out of the end zone. Arvada (0-2) will host Skyview Friday at 4 p.m. Arvada West: The Wildcats got their first victory of the season in style when they shut out Rock Canyon 14-0 on the road. A-West responded to being shut out the previous week by producing an unbreakable defensive effort. The Wildcats scored a pair of touchdowns in the second quarter, one a 30-yard rushing touchdown by senior Marcus Culhane. A-West will host Chatfield Friday at 7 p.m. at North Area Athletic Complex. Bear Creek/Green Mountain: After winning only two games all of last season, the Bears improved to 2-0 with a 38-20 victory over Green Mountain on Friday. Bear Creek scored a total of 25 points in the second and third quarter and the Rams couldn’t keep up offensively. It was the second consecutive game where the Bears scored at least 36 points. Green Mountain also showed flashes of

brilliance in the loss that included a 20-yard touchdown reception by senior Mitch Shafer. The Rams (1-1) will host Golden Thursday at 7 p.m. Bear Creek will look to stay unbeaten when they host Mountain Vista Thursday at 4 p.m. D’Evelyn: After scoring 95 total points in their first two wins of the season, the power went out for the Jaguars in their 42-7 loss to Holy Family on Saturday. Holy Family scored 14 points in each of the first three quarters and D’Evelyn was left in the dust. Senior Conner Mateer had a rushing touchdown for the Jaguars in the second quarter, but four turnovers doomed D’Evelyn’s chances for a win. The Jaguars (2-1) will travel to Stocker Stadium where they will play Grand Junction Central Friday at 7 p.m. Faith Christian: The Eagles improved to 2-1 with a monster 59-18 victory over Vista Peak Prep Friday at Faith Christian High School. Senior running back Daniel Langewisch stole the show with his epic 125-yard rushing effort that was capped with four touchdowns. The Eagles had 31 total first downs and scored 41 points in the second and third quarters, fuelling their blowout win. Faith Christian (2-1) will travel to Kent Denver for a match up Friday at 3:30 p.m. Golden: The rebuilding Demons suffered their second straight big loss when they were beaten by Dakota Ridge 51-0 Friday at Trailblazer Stadium. Golden, led by first year head coach Jason Neely, struggled against Dakota Ridge who overwhelmed them offensively. Neely, despite the blowout, remains positive and acknowledged that it will take some time for Golden to once again become a force in Jeffco football. The Demons (0-2) will play Green Mountain Thursday at 7 p.m. at Trailblazer Stadium. Jefferson: Even though their defense

Pomona fell to Cherry Creek but junior quarterback Justin Roberts continues to improve. Photo by Daniel Williams kept them in the game until its end the Saints fell to Sheridan 14-6 on Friday. Jefferson players suffered their first loss of the season, after they threatened to tie the score late in the game. But Sheridan’s surprising stout defense never cracked. The Saints (2-1) are still off to an impressive start to their season and will try to build on it Saturday when they play at Denver Christian at 1 p.m. Pomona: In a meeting between two of the best teams in the state Pomona fell to Cherry Creek Friday at North Area Athletic Complex, 19-15. After a slow first half where only nine total points were scored both teams got it together in the second half. However, Pomona couldn’t close the deal despite Chris Marquez’s big night. The senior running back rushed for 83 yards and a touchdown, but Cherry Creek did just enough to slow the rest of the Panthers’ offense down. The two teams could see each other

again in the playoffs. Pomona (1-1) will host Lakewood Saturday at 7:30 at NAAC. Ralston Valley: After two big wins to open the season the Mustangs struggled in their 36-18 loss to ThunderRidge Saturday at North Area Athletic Complex. ThunderRidge jumped on Ralston Valley early in the action and never let up. The Mustangs attempted to get back into the game, and if it wasn’t for sloppy play the game outcome could have been different. The Mustangs (2-1) will travel to Grand Junction Friday at 7 p.m. Wheat Ridge: The Farmers fell 45-18 at Monarch on Saturday, but there are positive to take from the loss. Wheat Ridge got a glimpse at the reigning state champions and now has a measuring stick on what it takes to get to that level. Monarch scored 14 points in each of the first three quarters before the Farmers started to get it going late. The Farmers (1-1) will host Littleton Friday at 4 p.m.

Tigers get first win of season over Pine Creek Lakewood’s running attack the difference in the victory By Daniel Williams

dwilliams@ourcoloradonews.com LAKEWOOD - The Lakewood Tigers recorded their first victory in a scrappy 27-13 win over Pine Creek Thursday at Jeffco Stadium. The Tigers had three different players score rushing touchdowns, and Lakewood managed to hold off a Pine Creek team that wouldn’t go away. “The final score looks like we handled them but that wasn’t necessarily the case tonight,” Lakewood coach

Mark Robinson said. “They played us tough, but we needed to find a way to win this game.” Lakewood took a 13-0 lead in the first quarter before letting Pine Creek back into the game in the second quarter, 13-6. Junior sensation Sean Pinson scored a third quarter rushing touchdown from the goal line, giving the Tigers enough cushion to hold on. Pinson finished with 51 rushing yards on 15 carries. “We never got set off tonight for some reason but you also have to give their defense some credit because they played us tough tonight,” Pinson said. Lakewood senior Casey Nichols

had a rushing touchdown and finished with 6 rushing yards. The game was certainly not a must-win considering the season is so young, but if Lakewood wants to sneak into the state championship game like they did a couple seasons ago, the Tigers had to handle their business against Pine Creek. “We have a good team and good players but that doesn’t mean we are going to win easy. That actually means we have to work even harder to get back to where we want to be,” Robinson said. The Tigers (1-1) will be tested again when they play powerhouse Pomona Saturday at 7:30 p.m. at Jeffco Stadium.

Jeffco soccer highlights: Lakewood’s first win Jaguars keep Bears winless with shutout By Daniel Williams

dwilliams@ourcoloradonews.com Alameda: The Pirates were shut out for the second straight game, falling at Denver North 3-0 on Tuesday. Despite their show start coach Steve Houwan is confident his team is close to not only getting their first win but also to being a really good team this season. Alameda is 0-2 on their season but junior goaltender Jose Macias has helped keep games close with multiple tough saves. The Pirates will host Sheridan Tuesday at 4 p.m. Arvada West: Despite being pummeled by 14 shots on goal, the Wildcats got a 2-0 victory at Boulder on Saturday. Senior Shazz Heale stopped all 14 of Boulder’s shots on goal, and senior Brett Bender scored in the shutout victory. A-West will host Golden Friday at North Area Athletic Complex. Bear Creek/D’Evelyn: The Jaguars hung on for a 1-0 victory Thursday at Bear Creek High School. D’Evelyn improved to 2-2 with the win, but the Bears fell to 0-3 on their season. Giovanni Franzese scored the game’s only goal for the Jaguars in the second half and the Bears defense managed to keep Bear Creek out of the back of the net.

Just for laughs at Playhouse Wisecracks, foolery abound at Miners Alley Playhouse By Amy Woodward

Miners Alley Playhouse had its audience cracking up during Comedy at the Alley, a new venue that will be held every third Wednesday of the month. The talent offered the audience comedic samples of the diverse hilarity Miners Alley Playhouse can provide. A one-man show, and a Jane Austin improvisational group, along with classic stand-up were the featured performances during opening night on Aug. 29. “We really want to do this right,” said Len Matheo, co-executive director of Miners Alley. “I want this to be professional.” Miners Alley has never had a comedy night, and Matheo is hoping it will take off and establish itself as a respectable comedy club much like the Comedy Works chains around Denver. “There’s really no ‘comedy west’ fin-in Denver,” said Matheo. “We wanted to offer more entertainment for the ot apeople of Golden as well as the school on isof mines student,” he said. ts to Vic Alejandro was the stand-up conshipmedian for the night who discussed sonsmarriage, the single life and getting

Telephone conference planned this fall By Amy Woodward

awoodward@ourcoloradonews.com Jefferson County commissioners will be dialing out to Jeffco residents to get their stance on the Jeffco 5 initiative, along with other topics this fall, during a town hall phone conference. Residents however will not be able to dial in during the conference. The issue of receiving public feedback or to move forward on a decision was long debated during the commissioner’s staff briefing on Aug. 27. An official date for the town hall phone conference has not been scheduled but should take place no later than early October, according to Kathryn Heider, PIO for the board of county commissioners. The Jeffco 5 initiative seeks to increase the number of county commissioners from three to five, with a measure placed on the ballot for 2014. If passed, Jeffco would see a redistricting in 2015, with county commissioners running for election in 2016, and officially functioning as a five member board in 2017. Operating costs and capital costs totals anywhere from $725,000 to $750,000, according to county administrator Ralph Schell who recommended that commissioners do not go forward with the initiative due to budget constraints and the budgets unpredictability for the year 2017 when the costs are implemented. District 2 commissioner Tighe requested public opinion on the matter before the

commissioners make their decision. The deadline for county commissioners to refer the initiative on the ballot is July 2014, although commissioners would like to make a decision long before next summer. “It’s important to have a dialogue with the citizens,” Tighe said. “With the amount of interest we’ve seen in it, I would like to get more input.” Commissioner Tighe advocated for public hearing along with a telephone town hall conference in order to gather public input. “I think it’s a debate that the county should have, do the people of the county want to have smaller districts and more representation, are they willing to pay for that?” Tighe said. “Those are facts that I don’t feel I have to make a decision on.” “Even in hearings, if we have a full group of people and that whole hearing room is filled with people ... that does not make the decision on what maybe the outcome is,” Commissioner Griffin said. “Each commissioner votes the way they feel is for the future, they will take into consideration what has been said.” As staff coordinates a date for the dial out telephone town hall, the members of Jeffco 5 were not pleased with the outcome of the discussion, specifically, a denial for a public forum in which residents can show up and voice their concerns to the commissioners. “I was just floored,” said Jeffco 5 member Bernie McDowell. “Jefferson county voters are being denied even the ability to make this decision. They should not have the right to keep this from being heard,” McDowell said.
