Talks about corrections site begin once more


Commissioners start over as they meet with city councils By Amy Woodward

Art lovers and supporters alike turned out for the “Top Hats & Chapeaus Soiree” event at the Foothills Art Center on Sept. 28. Attendee’s helped to raise funds for the matching grant gift challenge set at $36,000. The event’s theme called for participants to wear their best hats, while Beto Mojardin, designer and owner of Beto’s Hair Studio in Denver, put together antique style ball gowns worn by models who helped create the ambiance of the event.

County commissioners will be on an educational tour to municipalities in the county to present information on community corrections, its functions, and why the county is interested in relocating the proposed correctional facility that fell flat this past July. The proposed site along Wide Acres road angered nearby residents, and efforts to place a corrections facility there were abandoned. “We still have an interest in moving it,” County Commissioner Casey Tighe said. On Sept. 16, county commissioners made a presentation to Lakewood city council, and will present to Golden city council members on Thursday, Oct. 10 at 8 p.m. The meetings are not about location approvals Commissioner Tighe said. “The purpose of this is to provide an informational presentation to city council on what corrections is,” he said. “We have not identified a location.” Talks continues on Page 27

Condos home to sculptured wildlife Dying trees turned to art, two more carvings added to property By Amy Woodward The Golden Ridge Condos off Heritage Road and Highway 6 has had the reputation of being a rundown complex. Built in 1974, the condos became worn-out along with the surrounding property. But when Don Marion took over as property manager in 2004, he saw to it that units were upgraded, and the landscape was made over. Along the way, trees needed to be removed, so Marion came up with a novel idea to keep the trees while still landscaping the property. He contacted local tree carver and sculpture Lueb Popoff about carving an old tree outside the club house. Marion then used the city’s neighborhood grant program which matched him $2,500 to help fund the tree carving. Now, a family of foxes carved from a POSTAL ADDRESS

The second carving is 11 feet high with a Golden eagle and her chicks positioned at the top of the cottonwood tree. Photo by Amy Woodward once dying tree stands outside the club house. Around April of this year, Marion went back to Popoff after he discovered two cottonwoods that were dying.

After a month of stripping, carving, priming and waiting out rainstorms; Popoff completed his tree carvings which stand 10 feet and 11 feet tall, positioned south of heritage road, just to the right on Golden Ridge Road. The final artwork is in two pieces, with one tree holding a mother Golden eagle and her chicks, and the other tree showing two climbing black bear cubs, with one cub showing an interest in the Golden eagles. “Part of it was doing an interactive thing rather than two separate carvings that did not have a relation to each other,” Lueb Popoff said about the project. “This is a way to honor the tree and kind of breathe new life into it.” Drivers on Golden Ridge Road will be able to view the finished pieces, which add to the area’s growing development, Marion said. The climbing bears fit in perfectly with the new climbing facility that is being built near the condos, and the eagles which are native to the area also fit well for the Eagle Ridge subdivision located across the street. “It adds something for the entire neighborhood,” said Marion. “Lueb is just really

an amazing artist.” Popoff’s care and attention to detail is what make his carvings remarkable. He places taxidermy eyes on the animals so they look almost life-like, and adds texture to the carved pieces with the use of feathers and talons. The aspen nest for the baby eagle chicks was handmade; carved and cut from laminated bass wood, and then epoxied in. Like most things, the carvings will not last forever. Eventually, the tree will decay from the inside out and will die, but the carvings will be around for the next 10 to 15 years, Popoff said. “When someone walks up our walk and sees this, they can tell the people who live here take pride in where they live,” Marion said. “They take care of where they live and that rubs off on the people who live here to take pride and take care of what they have.” For more information on Lueb Popoff and his carvings visit More information on Golden’s neighborhood grant program can be found at: under the “live” tab.

Storyteller helps others reach within He doesn’t remember quite what motivated him to offer a class to senior citizens on how to write your own life story. But then, for Garrett Ray, at 77 no youngster himself, life has been all about stories. The first page of his in-progress book starts this way: “Our stories begin as fragments in an attic trunk, nearly forgotten, then rediscovered, sometimes to our surprise. We pull out bits of fabric, examine the colors, move the scraps around, enjoy each one as a unique link to our past. Then we begin to place them side by side, discovering patterns we had not seen before, rearranging, looking again.” When you think about it, that’s who we are, isn’t it? A jumble of pieces steadily stitched into a narrative that somehow, one day, amazingly and unexpectedly, becomes a good story. You just have to see it. “Everybody … has stories to tell,” says Ray, in his soft and quick-paced voice, “if you can just get them to think that way.” The classes began in 2010 in the Highlands Ranch retirement complex he and his wife of 53 years moved to after a first career as a newspaper reporter and editor and a second one as a journalism professor. He calls this his third act. Offered once or twice a year for five hours over five weeks, the classes average 10 to 15 students. Even though he wrote weekly newspaper columns for more than 20 years, Ray uses Lois Daniel’s book, “How to Write Your Own Life Story,” to help teach his students. “A lot of them think if you’re going to write your life story, you’ve got to start with the first day,” Ray says. But you don’t. You look for the moments. “It might be a happy incident … or a house you lived in,” Ray says. “And that’s

where you ought to start, and guaranteed … you have enough stories to string together to make a pretty impressive package.” That’s what Dottie and John Talbott are doing. The couple, in their 80s, attended one of Ray’s classes last year. John, who can no longer type or write, is in a motorized wheelchair and speaks very softly. So he dictated his stories to Dottie, who typed them on the computer. “We figured out what things to talk about and what things to put in his memoir up to his sophomore year in college,” Dottie says. That’s when they met. “It was great fun,” she says, with a laugh. “I heard a lot of things I didn’t even know about him and we’ve been married for 63 years.” This winter, Dottie plans to write her part, which also will end at sophomore year in college. Then, she and John will compile the rest together. When the story is complete, one of their three daughters will add photographs and print the book. Their children, seven grandchildren and two great-grandchildren, Dottie says, “will know who we are.” ••• Ray’s passion for writing started when he was 11 in Greeley, where he grew up. He, his younger brother and sister and a

couple of friends published a weekly newspaper called “The Neighborhood News” for three summers. They wrote about lost dogs and vacation trips and home improvements. He learned a bit about storytelling from his mother, a reporter and editor at The Greeley Tribune. His tenure as editor and publisher at The Littleton Independent from the 1960s to 1981 won him state and national acclaim — he was recently inducted into the Denver Press Club Hall of Fame. And he continued sharing his love for storytelling with students as a professor at Colorado State University until retiring in 2001. When you get it just right, writing is a gift, Ray says: “The human being … the eccentricities of people, the joys of people, the sadness of lives. … Almost anything will shape itself into a story if you can figure out how to start.” He smiles, blue eyes earnest behind his glasses, as he answers a question about the writing of his life story. Working on it, he says. “I’ve got to give myself a deadline — I only respond to deadlines, I think.” But he has a good start. A white utility binder encompasses 70 or so pages, some copies of the “Scratch Pad” columns he wrote for the newspaper, others written more recently. Each carries a simple title. There’s “The house on the corner.” “When we turn the corner by the house, I always hope someone will be standing outside so I can stop and say, ‘I grew up here!’ Here is where my parents planted the iris garden, and here, my grandmother grew roses, feeding them coffee grounds each evening.” And “Playing back the old tapes.” “We carry old tape recordings in our unconscious minds. …” And “Farm boys” and “Understand-

ing Dad” and “Thanksgiving at Grandma Ray’s.” And “In 2007 I became old.” “I have begun to notice the darkening beauty of our mountain ridge against the last light in the western sky. I wait for the dusk, grateful for the purity, the clarity, the nightly gift. “I dance with Bailey, overflowing with 18 months of toothy grins and joyful rhythms, to ‘Sleeping Beauty’ and ‘Mary Had a Little Lamb.’ “I cry easily, in sadness, in joy, in gratitude, in celebration. “In 2007, I became 71. I forgave myself. I began to wonder what happens next.” Ray calls his in-progress book “Partial Recall” because he doesn’t remember every detail. Just bits and pieces stand out. His life story, he says, is not cohesive. “This is not going to have the nice, smooth flow that a memoir would have. I don’t know if it will work or not. But it doesn’t make any difference if it works or not if I’m happy with it.” In the end, he hopes his grandchildren and their children, whoever reads his words, will think “it was worth their time.” Remember the first page, where Ray describes stories as scraps of fabric that we constantly rearrange and lay side-by-side into stories that matter? Here is the last line to that paragraph: “Before our eyes, a larger scene emerges, full of memories and color. Finally, our patchwork quilts reveal the stories of our lives.” We all have one.

Building better cities block by block New concept helps to transform dilapidated streets By Amy Woodward Urban planning may be easier than once thought, after an insightful and quick look at rapid revitalization projects presented by Jason Roberts, founder of The Better Block at the Mayor’s 2013 Community Event on Sept. 25. Quick revitalization demonstrations have become a breakthrough technique that has cut through red tape, and transformed many towns and city infrastructures across the U.S. and overseas to Australia and Tehran, Iran. The concept is simple — residents rally together to pick a block or street they think needs to be updated, and then pick a weekend to “remodel” the area using cheap materials to demonstrate how they think the street should look. It is similar to playing dress up, but instead, you temporarily dress up a street. “It just takes someone standing up and kind of mobilizing the community a bit,” Roberts said. “If you’re passionate about something, you have all it takes to be a leader.”

Roberts has been successful in turning blighted areas into functional, colorful and profitable locations. A former IT consultant, and member of a local rock band, he now travels all over the country from his hometown Dallas, TX to educate others about taking hold of their community by stepping away from city hall and into the streets. But he still discussed the importance of inviting local government leaders to view the projects to help speed up discussions and processes. Roberts has sped up the renovation and political process in a given area by months as opposed to years. “By us showing what it could be temporarily, it made things change rapidly,” he said about his Norfolk project which sold a building for $1.1 million before the project was finished. Councilor Marcie Miller for district two said the better blocks project helps to provide a pathway for development and renovation. “We have rules and regulations for very good reasons but sometimes I think we could suspend them for two days while we test drive a new vision,” Miller said. “It’s paint, its chalk; it doesn’t have to be permanent.” For more information about better blocks go to

McGee says ‘goodbye’ to cycle hub in January Search continues for new executive director By Amy Woodward Chris McGee executive director for the Bicycle Racing Association of Colorado, stationed in Golden, will be voluntarily resigning from his position at the end of this year, with an official exit in mid-January 2014. It’s really going to be an interesting transition, he’s my arms and legs for a lot of things,” Clint Bickmore, president of Bicycle Racing Association said. “You don’t have enough nice pretty words to say how much we appreciate his efforts.” After three years of networking, promoting and keeping track of the association’s finances, McGee made the decision to leave the organization for work that allows more time for his family. McGee described the position as having two parts; office work and outside office work. “To do this job correctly I think you really need to put a lot your effort into those `outside of the office’ efforts,” McGee said. A candidate has not been chosen yet to

The city alone has 25 separate races


a year, and the organizations holds 140 events statewide. “Most of our membership and events are on the Front Range so this is a perfect location,” McGee said. As the executive director, McGee has put in the effort and dedication to keeping

the Bicycle Racing Association of Colorado in the spotlight. “Our business model has changed, we went from a separate sanctioning body to being part of a bigger picture and retaining our relevance to the cycling community during that transitions has been one of my primary focuses,” McGee said. “I want us to be viewed as part of the overall cycling community not just a bunch of type-A racers. I think that’s a very real message and a very true message for where we need to be as an organization.” McGee plans to work at a small business owned by a good friend called Colorado Home Cooling in Lakewood. His friend is in need of support in marketing, advertising, and other business management as the company continues to grow. But McGee said he will still be around and active in the cycling community, even if the new executive director decides to move the office, participating on various committees such as the pro- challenge and helping to organize events such as the Colorado miniclassic. “It’s pretty exciting to be involved in so many things,” McGee said. “We can keep growing on the momentum I think we have as a cycling community.”

Differences clear in D5 school board race By Vic Vela

Differences on the issues Positions on a tax hike-funded overhaul of the state’s school finance system and a controversial student information database are just a couple of the major policy areas where two Jefferson County school board candidates differ. Ken Witt and Gordon “Spud” Van de Water, both of Littleton, are vying to fill an open seat on the Jefferson County Board of Education this fall. Their contest will determine which man will represent Jeffco’s District 5, an area that includes the cities of Littleton and parts of south Lakewood. The candidates are seeking to fill the seat that’s being vacated by outgoing District 5 director Paula Noonan, who will not be seeking reelection. Van de Water is a parent and a grandparent who touts three decades of work in education and policy research as a key area that separates him from his opponent. “If you want somebody who knows the policy world, what it means to work on a policy and how to get to a conclusion on an issue, then you might want to vote for me,” he said. Witt is a Colorado native with four children, who is active in church-based youth activities. He believes that his background in bigbusiness data security has prepped him for the type of leadership that he thinks is needed on the school board. “I have dealt with groups of people who have come at issue with different perspectives and different desires,” he said. “I try to get others to identify a common goal and get folks to agree on a solution.”

Van de Water said that, if elected, he will focus on issues through a student achievement lens, especially now that the district will soon be faced with implementing new student assessment mandates. “We have a persistent, stubborn achievement gap in our schools,” Van de Water said, referring to student testing scores that continue to show that students in certain demographics lag behind their peers. “I’m very interested in finding out how we align things from preschool through college, and making easy transition for students, throughout.” Witt said that he hears from parents in the district who are “proud” of Jeffco schools in general, but that he also hears concerns from those who believe that their voices aren’t being heard by district policy-makers. “They don’t feel the school board solicits community input before making decisions,” he said. And Witt especially believes that the board is “a little late to the game on public input” on the district’s plans to implement a virtual classroom dashboard. The dashboard, which is expected to be piloted next year, will collect student academic data in a singular database and is aimed at allowing teachers to better personalize instruction. However, opponents have expressed concerns over student privacy and security issues that the database could bring and they have questioned the role of the

‘We have a persistent, stubborn achievement gap in our schools.’ Gordon Van de Water nonprofit that will fuel the dashboard — inBloom, which has received both national praise and criticism over the type of student data it is capable of storing. Witt feels that the district needs to heed the concerns that have been voiced by parents. “I do have some concerns over the risks to students’ privacy. What data might be gathered and how this database is being shared are areas of significant concern,” Witt said. “It’s essential that we not only secure the information, but we need to also agree on what information is being collected. Witt also said that the project — which will come at $2-$5 per student cost to the district in 2015, when the pilot periods ends — could end up costing more than what administrators think because of the potential purchasing of “new applications and new interfaces that will have to play well with inBloom.” Van de Water said he has studied the classroom dashboard issue and that he supports its implementation. “I am in favor of giving teachers the technology and the tools and the support they need to do better in the classroom,” he said. “I ask, ‘Is this a good thing for teachers?’ I think it looks like a good thing to me.”

“You have security and privacy issues, but best I can tell, there are higher levels of security and more levels of security than we currently have (with current data systems). Is it perfect? No. you’re not going to get to perfect in this world.” The two men also disagree on their positions on Amendment 66 — the November ballot question that seeks $950 million in new taxes that will fund an overhaul of the state’s school finance system. Van de Water supports the ballot measure. “I think it’s very good that the state is trying to get back to a more adequate funding system of education,” he said. “We’ve lost $1 billion in funding over last four years.” But Witt opposes Amendment 66, in part because Jeffco tax payers will end up paying more into the system that what the district will receive in actual funding. “I don’t believe that the Amendment 66 structure is an appropriate way to fund education,” Witt said. “It’s bad for Jeffco.” Witt took a shot at Van de Water not having children who attend Jeffco schools, saying that a candidate’s “recent experience in the Jeffco school district” is important. But Van de Water called that a ridiculous criticism.

Jefferson County – According to industry experts, there are over 33 physical problems that will come under scrutiny during a home inspection when your home is for sale. A new report has been prepared which identifies the eleven most common of these problems, and what you should know about them before you list your home for sale. Whether you own an old home or a brand new one, there are a number of things that can fall short of requirements during a home inspection. If not identified and dealt with, any of these 11 items could cost you dearly in terms of repair. That’s why it’s critical that you read this report before you list your home. If you wait until the building inspector flags these issues for you, you will almost certainly experience costly delays in the close of your home sale or, worse, turn

prospective buyers away altogether. In most cases, you can make a reasonable pre-inspection yourself if you know what you’re looking for, and knowing what you’re looking for can help you prevent little problems from growing into costly and unmanageable ones. To help homesellers deal with this issue before their homes are listed, a free report entitled “11 Things You Need to Know to Pass Your Home Inspection” has been compiled which explains the issues involved. To hear a brief recorded message about how to order your FREE copy of this report, call toll-free 1-800-508-7293 and enter 1003. You can call any time, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Residents urged to use CodeRED warning tool System to be used during floods to alert of dangers By Clarke Reader Area police are encouraging residents to register for CodeRED, the system that alerts residents to emergencies in their area. CodeRED is an emergency alert system used all over Jefferson County that sends messages to phones to warn residents during critical situations, and give them updates on what is happening. With CodeRED police and fire agencies are able to select the exact area where notification is required, and record their own messages to the residents. The recent flooding Colorado faced is a prime example of the importance of signing up for the alert service. Even though the flooding prompted no evacuations in Lakewood, the City issued a precautionary pre-evacuation notice to about 300 homes near Lena Gulch through CodeRED. “We started using CodeRED on Jan. 1 and it’s been very beneficial to have,” said Scott Rose, Lakewood police communica-

tions supervisor. “So far we’ve only had to use it around 10 times, but it has been used by the county quite a bit more.” For people who have landlines, their number is already in the system’s database, but people have to register their mobile phones with the cell phone if they want to receive information on those devices. Numbers can only be registered to one address. “There can be a problem with just having the land line registered, because people will receive a message on it telling them to leave their homes, but if their mobile phone isn’t registered, they won’t hear the call telling them they can return,” Rose said. When people don’t answer — which Rose said happens often because the number that shows up on caller IDs is an 866 number — a voicemail will be left with the important information. The system allows for text messages and e-mails to be sent as well. For more information from Lakewood, visit County residents can sign up at or at

By Tammy Kranz

see if they like a sport, to Skiing can be expensive — by time you get all your gear, trek up the mountain and pay for your pass. The cost alone can deter many from even trying it out. Progresh — an indoor training center dedicated to action sports — invites people of all skill levels to give skiing (and biking, climbing, snowboarding, skateboarding and tumbling) a go. “It’s an outlet for kids and adults to try it first to see if they like a sport, to introduce them to it,” said Progresh co-founder Questor “Q” Sapnu. “This place is for beginners and professionals. We have skill coaches able to work with any skill level.” Progresh opened its doors Sept. 7 at 9499 N. Washington St. in Thornton. The 11,000-square-foot facility has 45-foot ceiling and features synthetic snow jump into an airbag with multiple drop-in platforms, rails, cliff drop, and a learning slope with synthetic snow for skiers and snowboarders. For skateboarders and bikers, there’s a mega ramp into an airbag with adjustable drop-in platform; an eight-foot drop into an airbag to practice stair drops; a flow park with a bowl, spine, vertical wall and minihalf; and a street course with ledges, rails, banks and quarter pipes. For tumbling, the facility has Olympicgrade trampolines, a spring floor, balance and trampoline boards and a harness system with twisting belts for the ultimate trampoline training. The main feature, however, is the custom-made airbag the center uses instead of foam. Students can use the bag with skis, snowboards, bikes, skateboards or by freedropping. “It’s like landing in a cloud,” Sapnu said.

‘It’s an outlet for kids

introduce them to it.’ Questor “Q” Sapnu While professionals do train at Progresh, Sapnu said that the environment is safe and encouraging and no one should feel intimidated to try out a sport. “We try to get everyone to support each other,” he said. The centers offers viewing areas with WiFi and USB charging stations, a game room, computer lab for digital media editing and production, outdoor patio with views of downtown Denver and the mountains and meals and snacks. “The videos on the website do not do it justice — you have to see this place in person to feel the energy, see the smiles — that’s where it really is,” Sapnu said. The cross-training facility offers a variety of classes, camps, drop-in sessions, group activities and even hosts birthdays and field trips. Sapnu and co-founders Kyle Henley and Mike Pies trained together at a place similar to Progresh in Copper Mountain — a trip that sometimes took two hours in traffic. They worked together to create a similar facility in the Denver area to provide an easily accessible action/snow-sport destination for everyone, year round. “When visitors come here we want them to learn something, but we want them to think they just had the best time in the world,” Sapnu said. Call 720-441-2112 or visit for more information.

October is time for Golden to get ‘chili’ I think I might have mentioned this before — there are a couple of beer breweries in Golden, but I’ll say it again just in case you hadn’t noticed any. Although there are many wonderful things about living here and an abundance of other things to capture our attention, lets be honest, beer is kind of a central theme around here. We make it, we drink it and a lot of us tend to enjoy it. Well for all you beer lovers out there a little day of heaven is about to happen here in town when the Coors Distributing Co. and the Greater Golden Chamber of Commerce combines beer and chili for their 6th Annual “Knock Your Boots Off” Beer Tasting and Chili Cook-Off. It’s happening on Saturday, Oct. 19, between 12th and 13th streets on Arapahoe Street in Golden, behind the Foss Building. It opens to the public at 2 p.m. and runs until about 5 p.m. but the cooks and entries will be arriving at 6:30 a.m. to get started. Now, if you haven’t been to this thing, let me give you a little preview of what to expect. There will be about 70 different kinds of beers available to sample. They will pretty much cover every imaginable

beer out there from micro breweries to the big guy on the east side of town. Light, dark, flavored, you name it, you will find plenty of prime examples of brewing skill in multiple beer types. As far as the chili goes, this is a cooking competition that includes several categories ranging from individuals to restaurants. There will be about 50 different entries including those from teams. Each individual or team must set up their own cooking booth and all chili must be cooked right there on site. Great care has been taken in the rules of the competition to ensure that everything is completely sanitary and in accordance with all Jefferson County Health Department rules and regulations. No one is go-

ing to be bringing some mystery concoction from a questionable kitchen at home. Everything will be made fresh right there in the open and on site. There is a judging panel as well as ballots from the public and prizes will be awarded in restaurant and non restaurant divisions for red, green and “other” which includes things like veggie, white, meatless etc. There will also be people’s choice awards. The chilies are graded on the following factors, aroma, consistency, color, taste and aftertaste. They say that “heat” is not a judging factor, but this is a chili cook off, so expect some of them to be fire hot. Also, each booth is encouraged to be fun and colorful and sort of a show in itself, so there are prizes for showmanship as well. The criteria for judging them are theme, booth set-up, costume, action and audience appeal. It makes the event a lot more fun and exciting and is something unique as well. Tickets are available in advance at The Golden Visitors Center, 10th and Washington Ave. or on site the day of the event.

They run $30 for beer and chili or $25 for chili only. You can use your credit card if you get them in advance, but it’s cash only at the gate. Keep in mind that this is a fund raising event and all proceeds go to benefit the Golden Chamber of Commerce to be used for community projects. If you need more information you can visit and there is a link there for an entry application and rules as well. You can also drop by the visitor center or call (303) 279-3113 to order tickets in advance. So, if you have a great recipe for chili that always makes your friends and family ask for more or if you just like the idea of an afternoon filled with fun, beer and chili this is going to be the place to be. It’s kind of a different twist on Oktoberfest, but hey ... this is Golden, right? We tend to do things our own way!

has been in their life almost 7 years and has no real connection with them, and it does not feel like we’re a family. My once avid sex drive has all but disappeared, and we are drifting apart. I am 49 and he is 43. Can you give me any insight? Lost in New Zealand Dear Lost: It’s hard to see the forest through the trees when you are living inside a story. You have to step back and view your story from a distance in order to be able to see it with any clarity. Let me offer you that clarity. The man you’re living with has a commitment issue. Plain and simple, he has never actually committed to you. He is, at

the most, only partially committed to you. Furthermore, you actually know it: that’s why you’ve withdrawn. Connecting with your twin girls takes time, effort and energy. It requires him to make an emotional investment in them, and in the job of becoming a stepdad to them (which he obviously is, having been in their lives since they were two). But it’s extremely telling that he hasn’t tried to bond with them, grow to love them and invest in a relationship with them. It speaks to him being tentative and half-hearted in the relationship, rather than committed and unreserved. The presence of the other woman speaks of the same lack of commitment. He didn’t have to be truthful and honest with you about financial matters--he had been looking for another woman on the side. Furthermore, it is not at all clear that he has any allegiance to being honest, transparent or sincere with the agreements he has made with you. It sounds like he may be making agreements in order to keep you off his back, but he has no genuine interest in holding himself to those agreements-

-because he’s just appeasing you. Which leaves you with a choice: stay with him and accept this scenario into the future (you have no evidence it’s going to change), or end the relationship with him in the hope that you will be able to eventually connect with someone else who will be honest, responsible, trustworthy, true and blue--and a stepdad. A grown man ought to know that if he chooses a woman with younger children, he is in the position of being a stepdad, and he is expected to rise to the occasion and be the best he can possibly be in that position. It sure sounds as if you could find better than him. He is too half-hearted. After the passion wanes, you’re left more with illusion than you are with a real relationship.

Half-hearted man has never committed Dear Neil: I am a single Mum of 9-yearold twin girls. Six and a half years ago, I met this man, and we had a wonderful and passionate connection. After a year, I discovered he had numerous financial issues, as well as breaches of honesty. Among other things, he had spent the deposit for our joint holiday home we had been planning together. In the end, I had enough of the lies and deceit, so I withdrew, and we did not see each other for a few weeks. But then I decided I wanted our relationship to work. I drove to his place and was shocked to discover a lady and her son had turned up at his place at 11 p.m., and I learned she was his new flame. To make a long story short, he went back to me, then back to her, then back to me. However, one evening after that, she turned up at his place, trying to get him back all over again. We have been living together in my house the past two and a half years, but we still have issues: family, money, honesty. He has not kept up with his financial agreements, and I have never felt that he has attempted to develop a relationship with my girls. I appreciate he is not their dad, but he

Would someone who is longer in the tooth than me please share the secret to aging gracefully? I’m at an age high enough to qualify for Medicare, but not an age young enough to avoid a nasty bike accident. After 30 years of riding bikes, and a few harmless falls, I finally did the big one — flew over the handlebars and smashed my shoulder into the pavement — in the dark. Seeing headlights coming toward me, I hit the brakes hard — way too hard. The bike stopped but I didn’t. Pain, ouch, hurt, ache, and more pain. Unable to move, I was taken by ambulance to Emergency. After X-ray, the ER doc announced, “You have a broken humerus — the bone in your right upper arm near your rotator cuff.” “Darn!” “You can wear a sling, we can’t set it.” What shocked me for weeks after was how little I could move my arm without pain. I had to write and eat with my left hand,

and I am right handed. I looked like a war victim for six weeks. Friendly people who observed my sling told me countless stories of other bike accidents involving broken collar bones, broken hips, intensive care units and even death. I wondered if someone up above trying to warn me to stay off my bike? My first murmurs after my accident when I knew the damage was limited to my shoulder, was Thank God I’m alive. It could have been so much worse. Time has gone by (the accident happened July 14) and I’m out of the sling and the heavy pain, but I’m still in physical therapy for range of motion exercises. And I wonder if I want to risk injury and recovery again if I get back on the Stobie continues on Page 9

We love letters, but stay within lines In an era in which readers are more likely to post comments at the bottom of an online article or on a blog or on Facebook, we believe there is still a place for the good old-fashioned letter to the editor. Unlike online commenting, letters to the editor must go through something of a vetting process before being published. Largely, this is in order to maintain a measure of civility that, sadly, is often lacking online. On our opinion pages, we aim to provide a forum to stir community conversation. We appreciate diversity of thought and do not pick which letters run or don’t run based on our viewpoint. If you’re wondering why your letter wasn’t printed or are hoping to have one that is, read what follows. These do’s and don’ts will make the process easier for you and our editors. Do: • Your homework. In other words, check your facts. We have a small staff and can’t

OUR VIEW do this for you. If you’re unsure of something, look it up. If you include a nugget of information that is not widely known, include where you found that fact. • Express your opinion. Tell us what you like or dislike. We particularly appreciate it when you comment on our articles and opinion pieces regarding local issues. But state, national and world issues are also on the table, if they are of relevance to our readers. • Keep it short. Our policy calls for letters of 300 words or fewer. Sure, we try to be a little flexible, and from time to time, you might see a letter a little longer but still in the ballpark. If you must go way over the limit, it won’t run, at least not as a letter


Should Todd Helton be in the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame? Folks around Denver were asked whether they believe Helton is Cooperstown material, after the Rockies slugger belted his 369th career home run and 592nd career double during his final home game on Sept. 25.

“Yes. He played with a losing team for so many years, and he still produced. He pretty much defined what baseball players should be.” Josh Martinez, Denver

“I’ve seen his stats. If he doesn’t make it to the Hall of Fame then we ought to reconsider who else shouldn’t be in there.” Chuck Burton, Denver

“His numbers aren’t good enough. He was good for the Rockies, but there’s a lot of people there who have better numbers than he has.” David Lee, Denver

“If you take his stats at face value, then yeah. The guy’s stats are worthy.” Chris Bond, Denver

WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU If you would like to share your opinion, go to or write a letter to the editor. Include your name, full address and the best telephone number to contact you. Please send letters to

to the editor. Consider requesting a guest column instead — but we have limited space for these. • Email your letter to You can also email one of our editors, but it is more efficient to send your letters to the address specifically designated for them. • Let us know who you are. Include your full name, address (including city) and phone number with your letter. We just need to give you a call to make sure the letter was actually written by you. Yes, “letterto-the-editor fraud” does happen. Don’t: • Put words in someone’s mouth. You can write in support — or opposition — of another person, such as a candidate for public office, but don’t assign any thoughts, opinions or actions to an individual that haven’t been publicly documented. If you do so, we may consider it a news tip and investigate the validity of your claim, but we won’t run it as a letter to

the editor. • Buy a stamp. “Snail mail” isn’t efficient when it comes to letters to the editor. As mentioned, we have a lean staff and can’t take the time to retype your letter (which, we’re guessing, was written on a computer anyway). Email your letter to the address mentioned earlier. It will get to us faster, something you will appreciate if you want to see it published in the upcoming edition of the newspaper. • Inundate us with letters. By this, we mean from one person. We want everyone to have their say, so don’t expect to see more than two of your letters printed in any given month. • Be surprised if we edit for grammar or punctuation. We approach this very judiciously, however. A tip: DON’T WRITE IN ALL CAPS or use a lot of !!! • Use profanity or call someone a word you wouldn’t use in front of your mother. Your letters really do matter. We look forward to seeing more of them.

When ‘facts’ become fiction What do the following “facts” have in common? 1) We are currently on a pace to tie the all-time record low for Atlantic Ocean hurricanes in a year. 2) School vouchers do not raise achievement levels across the board. And 3) Chicago is the gun murder capitol of America. Answer: whether or not you believe these facts has more to do with your politics than whether the researchers were thorough and accurate. According to a new study by the National Science Foundation and Yale University, our political leanings will often dictate what facts we allow to penetrate our decision-making processes. Worse still is that sometimes we allow those biases to even change how we approach finding solutions to seemingly objective problems like simple math. And you wondered how it was possible that Congress can’t seem to balance a checkbook. Apparently, two plus two only equals four as long as neither George Bush nor Barack Obama asks the question. And you want to know what’s even worse? This study also suggests that highly educated people are even more susceptible to altering their process depending on their politics. Apparently, one of the skills you master as you stay in school longer is the ability to rationalize. Which explains college campuses, I guess. This sort of cultural bias towards information goes a long way towards explaining why we’ve become so polarized as a body politic. It is no longer possible to have discussions with opposition based on facts because nobody is willing to acknowledge the facts that the other side presents. We sift through the information, hunting for whatever factoids support our points of view, rather than taking in the information as a whole and assimilating it into our analytical process. It is one way to avoid cognitive dissonance, I suppose. You never really have to make an admission against interest in

a debate when all you have are interests. But it sure makes it hard to find common ground, the sort of common ground that leads to real solutions to problems. Of course, that presumes that the people tasked with finding solutions actually want to solve any problem other than how to win the next election. So when you tell someone about the hurricane drought, don’t expect them to reconsider their position on global warming; or when you talk about how the voucher program in Cleveland did not show widespread gains in educational achievement, don’t hold your breath waiting for an admission that school choice is not a panacea; or when you tell someone about Chicago and remind them that Chicago is, legally, a gun-free city, don’t expect a thoughtful question about the merits of gun control. Because it turns out that facts don’t matter any more. Apparently, if you want to change somebody’s mind these days, you need grainy black-and-white photos, ominous music, and pathos-inspiring voiceovers. And lies. Why not, right? It works in election after election. And if facts don’t matter, then why would truth be any more important?

Better education requires better answers When I look at the smartphone in my hand, the computer on my desk or the GPS system in my car, I see technology harnessed to make me more efficient, more knowledgeable and more able to manage the myriad challenges that come with 21st century life. When I think about those same technologies applied for the good of our students, I can only ask one question: Why wouldn’t we? Why wouldn’t we give every classroom teacher in Colorado access to tools that can help them figure out students’ strengths and weaknesses in real time, in a classroom setting where they can make tailored adjustments to their instruction? Why wouldn’t we give parents access to tools that can help them track their child’s progress in the same way, allowing them to better support their child’s learning at home and engage more fully with their child’s teacher? Why wouldn’t we want the same type of technology that improves our daily lives to be brought to bear on an educational system that needs our continued support and encouragement to improve? I listen to the discussion about new technology initiatives being developed for Jefferson County Schools, and these questions go unanswered. At issue is the

district’s work to bring information they already collect together in a usable form for teachers, so they can stay on top of each student’s progress on a daily basis and provide individualized support so no student languishes from day to day or from year to year. In the case of Jeffco Public Schools, our state’s largest school district, these questions and their resolution are of importance to every one of us. Jeffco is among the first school districts in the country piloting the inBloom technology system, which enables teachers to more easily match students’ specific needs with tailored instruction and helps districts provide parents with user-friendly dashboards that show their child’s grades, assignments and academic progress. Some have attacked the district over

this system with misguided fears, rather than supporting them as they work to improve student learning. We don’t have to look far to see successful efforts in this arena. Denver Public Schools (DPS) upgraded technology more than five years ago to ensure that the academic progress of each child could easily and quickly be tracked each year to support that child through their educational journey. Denver teachers are now able to greet students with information on where that student has been, where they are now and what needs to happen to help them reach high educational goals. Jefferson County, like countless other school districts across Colorado, has several aging information databases that do not easily talk to each other and require large amounts of valuable teacher time to compile and assess. The pilot program Jefferson County teachers will use, inBloom, provides a new classroom dashboard in order to see a student’s test scores, grades and reading and math tests in a single easy-to-use format. Teachers will be able to customize learning plans to meet the differentiated needs of their students, helping them provide the best learning environment possible for

each student. Without question, families are right to require districts to prove their child’s data is secure. Jefferson County has done just that. The district established a Data Management Advisory Council comprised of parents, teachers, principals, and business and community leaders and engaged an independent security audit firm to share their analysis of the proposed technology with the community in the coming months. This willingness to deal seriously and comprehensively with security and privacy issues is a credit to the district as well. This returns me to my original question. Why would we deny our children and our children’s educators the same useful technologies most of us rely on daily? Providing a high quality education for all of our kids is a big task. When we face challenging tasks in life, we take advantage of the incredible technology advances upon which we have come to rely. If we want a better education for all our kids, we have to start making the same choices to embrace change, instead of letting fear prevent us from moving forward.

Introverts are speaking out against labels

“My problem is that I’m an introvert.” If you read the Business sections — as I do — of newspapers and websites, you probably recognize that how popular this topic has become. Introverts are now being counseled to be “assertively shy” and to “leverage” their advantages. Whole books on the subject are flying off the shelves. In fact, a quick s. search this week for “introvert” on Amazon produced 656 results. nd The argument is that society dras. matically undervalues introverts, because ple introverts are considered shy, reserved, want even antisocial. By contrast, extrovert are o admired because they are outgoing and gregarious; extrovert get things done. e But now, introverts are speaking out. Why? Part of the answer is probably a basic rejection of broad-sweeping labels the inferring that the traits of introverts are somehow inferior. Granted, the sheer numbers of books, websites, blogs, and ait- articles point to a bandwagon effect: e is introversion is in vogue. But so too is an ne increased emphasis on real women who Chi- have real bodies. Same-sex couples are pect inching toward legal recognition. And of though there’s still a long way to go, cultural and ethnic diversity are being accepted and even celebrated. nt These groups of people — which are s, not mutually exclusive, by the way — are os, also often undervalued by society. They battle labels of their own. Women are “fat,” “lazy,” and (gasp!) “old,” not allowed to

bike? I’m not sure. Mobility is important to me. I rode a bike with a video screen in the gym today and it was quite pleasant and SAFE. And it was more social than riding outside — I saw my friend’s mother, Dorothy, from my old neighborhood when I was growing up. She’s almost 90 and still exercising in the gym. She is an example of aging gracefully, but her daughter and I have both encouraged her to stop climbing the ladder and cleaning her own gutters! So if aging changes our judgment, how

have wrinkles or gray hair. Same-sex couples fight the stereotypes of labels such as “gay,” “lesbian,” and even “pervert,” plus many others not fit to print here. People of different ethnicities contend with spurious and inflammatory labels that could fill this page, and which have been leveled at various groups of people by other groups of people throughout our nation’s history. And even the extroverts lauded above are labeled as “schmoozers” and “manipulators” who get what they want by outmaneuvering others. Such labels such perpetuate a disproportionately negative importance on our differences, when what’s really significant is that we are simply who we are, unique in our own ways. Think about it … what label are you? Are you the keeper of all things domestic, the engine that runs your home and family … or are you a “housewife”? Are you successful or are you a “workaholic”? Are you a “deadbeat” because you are unemployed, or because you choose

do I gauge what is safe to do? If I don’t risk at all I’ll feel my world has shut down. These are issues I am pondering — my own mother stopped exercising and ended up in a walker. Dorothy, my friend’s mother is still out there playing tennis and in her own home. So what is the answer to biking or not? I don’t know yet. This aging thing is something we only go through once. I hope to make wise choices about my activities in the future, and at the same time make the most of my life. I’d love to hear from readers about your experiences in this area.

other alternatives to the 40-hour week? Are you “spoiled” with a “bad work ethic” because your generation grew up in a different world, a world where advanced technology is as common as turntables used to be, and where stability for employees can be as uncommon as the wristwatch? The proliferation of labels such as these, and the undesirable connotations that go with them, is why I applaud introverts who are speaking out, in spite of the fact that some might consider themselves out of their comfort zone. What’s really in

vogue is that there’s nothing wrong with being different. Perhaps, after all, it’s taken society’s introverts — people often considered “aloof,” “remote,” and “antisocial” — to raise their voices against labels, to speak out for the ways that all of us are unique, rather than wrong. Andrea Doray is a writer who can be extroverted when she needs to be, but believes there’s nothing wrong with thinking before she speaks. Contact her at

Virginia New exhibit based off of old letters, photos By Clarke Reader

Sharon Bond Brown, with a painting of Virginia, the neighbor who inspired Brown’s painting with her old letters. Photos by Clarke Reader


ne person’s trash is another’s treasure, and in the case of artists Sharon Bond Brown, one neighbor’s life proved to be an artistic gold mine. In the late 1980’s Brown was living next to a married couple named Virginia and Ed. When Ed died and Virginia was taken to a nursing home, Brown and her neighbor came across a trash bag full of old photos and letters that had been thrown out during cleaning. “I read the first letter and was amazed,” she said. “In the following year I became a detective, putting together a timeline of pictures and letters of these people’s lives.” Ever since Brown has been painting Virginia’s life, based on these photos and letters written to her husband, from 1935 to 1945 while Virginia was living in New York City. The Lakewood Heritage Center, 801 S. Yarrow St., is showing an exhibit called “Virginia: A Life” made up of Brown’s paintings, Virginia’s actual photos and letters, and artifacts and clothing

Visitors look at painting and clothing from the new Virginia: A Life exhibit at the Lakewood Heritage Center. from the 1930s and 1940s. The exhibit runs through Jan. 18. “I met Sharon at the Rino (River North Art) District downtown and heard about this series she had done of more than 80 paintings based on these letters,” said arts curator Lorene Joos. “It’s really almost a social anthropology exhibit, because it’s not only her paintings, but we also have Virginia’s dance cards and photos on display.” The letters that were Brown’s main inspiration spanned a 10-

year period, including a period of time when Virginia was a secretary at McCann Erickson in New York City. “I really only knew Virginia at the end of her life, so it was amazing to get to meet her younger self,” Brown said. “All painting is autobiography, but Virginia is something I can always come back to.” Brown said the exhibit is fantastic, because of all the clothing and other artifacts the Heritage Center added to her paintings. “We wanted to pull out as

show the power of one life. “I think this is really special,” she said. “It captures an ordinary life and shows how extraordinary an ordinary life can be.” For more information, visit

Water management on the rocks Red Rocks center and program one of only 12 nationwide By Clarke Reader Red Rocks Community College is preparing to celebrate the grand opening of the campus’ new Environmental Training Center, which houses the Water Quality Management program. The ETC features state of the art, environmentally friendly design is LEED gold certifiable. It also houses the Water Quality’s laboratory, mobile lab and outdoor training area. “Construction started on this building on Jan. 19, and it was delivered to us on Aug. 3,” said Mike Smith, program coordinator for the Water Quality program. “It is the program inside that makes the whole vision so special. It’s designed to accommodate any student, with any need, at any time for water industry training. Fully equipped with three labs and multiple teaching tools and displays, it is complete, inside and out.” The ETC is about 9,800-square-feet, 5,000 of it new and the rest a revamped of an older building, that was used when the Water Quality program began in 1979. According to information provided by Kim Rein, Red Rocks’ director of marketing and community relations, the Water Quality Management Technology program at the college is one of 12 centers in the country with a comprehensive program that prepares students for employment in water and wastewater operations, and other water industries. The faculty has industry experience in local, national and international water quality management. When Smith took over the department in 1996, he right away started making changes to the curriculum and expanded the program to include international work, community service and public awareness and a women’s mentorship program.

The entrance to the Water Quality Management program’s new building on the Red Rock’s Community College campus. Construction began on Jan. 19 and wrapped up on Aug. 3. RRCC offers courses leading to associate of applied science degrees as well as further training for currently working professionals. Giving students experience is a big goal of the program, and the new facility offers an outdoor training area with water mains, a vault that simulates what it would be like to climb down in an area to work on mains and pipes, and a “sabotaged” water system that instructors can make leak wherever they want. Smith said that reaching as many people as possible is a big goal for the program, and so all the classes are offered online in a hybrid form, which makes use of the program’s 35-foot mobile laboratory and online classes. “We’ve really created an incredibly effective program, with a great curriculum, that students can use to build the kind of schedule that they or employers would want,” he said. For more information on the Water Quality Management program at Red Rocks, visit

18 The Transcript October 3, 2013

West Metrolife

Chef doesn’t cut mustard I have the deepest respect for Denver restaurant owner and super chef Jennifer Jasinski (Rioja, Bistro Vendome, Euclid Hall) for her stellar performance in Bravo’s “Top Chef Masters,” which ended sadly not in her favor on Sept. 25. In losing, as part of the final three, she was nothing but gracious, of course. Here’s what James Oseland, editor-inchief of Saveur magazine, had to say about the end results: “I thought I had a handle on Jennifer’s excellence as a cook, and then during the finale meal, she served us her paella gnocchi. My God, it was the single best dish I ate all season — so perfectly balanced, so beautifully executed, so lovely to look at. Unfortunately, for her chances at winning the season, her other three courses — while very, very good — didn’t come anywhere near the glory of that dish. Still, if we’re handing out prizes for individual plates of food, this one is the season five gold-medal winner.” Not to be overlooked was her remarkable job of snaring the most money for her charity: $35,000 for Work Options for Women, a Denver nonprofit that teaches food service skills to women in poverty. “I have no regrets at all about this experience,” Jasinski said after being defeated by chef Douglas Keane. “Top Chef Masters” win or lose aside, Sept. 25 was still a good day for the Denver chef. Two of her restaurants, Rioja and Euclid Hall, were named among the Top 25 Best Restaurants in the October edition of 5280 magazine.

Above right, Phileas Fogg (Dustin Bronson) and Aouda (Caitlin Wise) share a tender moment during a whirlwind world tour in “Around the World in 80 Days.” Above, adventure is on the horizon for Phileas Fogg (Dustin Bronson) and his servant Passepartout (Graham Ward). At right, Patrick Du Laney is one of five actors who play 39 different characters in the show.



Another Boulder best

The University of Colorado-Boulder is back in the top 10. No, not its football program, but on Playboy magazine’s top 10 party schools. CU ranked third in Playboy’s 2013 list in the October issue. West Virginia University topped the list, followed by the University of Wisconsin. CU topped the list in 2011 and has been a regular in Playboy’s poll, which began as the top 40 party colleges in 1987. CU did not make the list a year ago. This year’s list was determined by Playboy’s editors, who used data from resources including the National Center for Education Statistics, the NCAA and the U.S. Economic Census, as well as feedback from Playboy’s more than 12 million social media fans. The 2012 top party school, University of Virginia, failed to make the 2013 list.

Restaurant Week does the splits

Denver Restaurant Week(s), one of the most popular events in town for the generous portions for a small price, is doing a double take by splitting its personality with two weeks spaced out during the year. In observation of the event’s 10th anniversary, Visit Denver’s Denver Restaurant Week will double the fun by holding one week from Feb. 22-28 and a second week Aug. 23-29. The new price per meal per person is $30, FYI ... Not a bad deal when you factor in inflation with the cost of food, etc. As you may recall, in several of the previous years, Denver Restaurant Week Parker continues on Page 19

Arvada Center’s latest production is on a world tour By Clarke Reader


he Arvada Center will take audiences on a whirlwind world tour with its latest production of “Around the World in 80 Days.” The center, 6901 Wadsworth Blvd., is hosting the Creede Repertory Theatre’s presentation of Jules Verne’s classic story through Oct. 27. Performances will be 7:30 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays, 1 p.m. on Wednesdays and 2 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. “This is an adaptation, but there are whole sections and speeches right out of the novel, so most of us went through and read the book,” said director Charlie Oates. “There are a lot of obvious challenges, but that’s really exciting for me because the solutions are always going to be really theatrical.” The story focuses on Phileas Fogg (Dustin Bronson), a man stuck in a routine and mostly solitary life that leaves him with little contact with the outside world. His French valet Passepartout (Graham Ward) is the only person he really spends any time with. He is a member of the Reform Club in London, and when he gets into an argu-

ment about the validity of a new claim that it is possible to circle the world in 80 days, he finds himself taking a wager that put both WHAT: Creede’ Reperhis life and tory Theatre’s production money at risk. of “Around the World in 80 “The play Days” starts with WHERE: Arvada Center Fogg and his 6901 Wadsworth Blvd., daily routine, Arvada and it beWHEN: Through Oct. 27 comes obvi7:30 p.m. - Tuesdays ously that he through Saturdays has to change, 1 p.m. - Wednesdays that some2 p.m. - Saturdays and thing like Sundays. this trip has COST: $38 to $48 to happen,” INFORMATION: 720-898Bronson said. 7200 or www.arvadacenter. “He has all org this confidence, but once he goes on the trip, a lot of that gets stripped away, and you see him become more human.” Ward describes Passepartout as an everyman character, who either gloriously messes everything up or saves the day. “He’s extremely interested in the world around him, and has a childlike


nature about him that makes him the opposite of Fogg,” Ward said. “You seem him as a really passionate, life-loving person.” Bronson said there are small moments throughout the show that really show how the two men actually respect each other, as different as they are. The numbers for the play are particularly astounding — 80 days to go around the world, with five actors playing 39 different characters over seven continents. Bronson is the only actor who plays just one character, since he’s on stage so much. “I like actors playing a lot of different characters,” Oates said. “It’s a vocal and acting skill that is really fun to exploit and work on.” Graham said that all the characters — and the fact their played by so few actors — makes the play more unique, and creates a much more collaborative experience for those involved. He added that after the shows audience members like to pick their favorite character from the 39 created on stage. Oates said that at the end, he hopes that audiences learn the importance of getting out of your house and seeing new things. “It’s an epic adventure,” Bronson added. “It relies a lot on the imagination of the audience, which I really enjoy.”

was two weeks, which in many cases put a mad crush on diner volumes, although the financial gains, in many cases, were well worth the effort. “A summer version of the event offers restaurants a lot of interesting serving and meal options,” said Richard Scharf, president and CEO of Visit Denver, the creator and organizer of DRW. “Restaurants will be able to offer outdoor dining and feature fresh Colorado produce. We anticipate that summer menus will be very different from the winter ones, and they will be able to showcase the farm-tofork movement that is so popular in the state.” In 2013, a record 355 participating res-

QUESTIONS 1) Please use three words to describe your leadership style. 2) Describe the skills that make you the best candidate for the job. 3) What areas should Jefferson County schools improve? 4) What would you do to increase partnerships with other organizations, such as city councils? 5) What do you make of inBloom as a data collection method to evaluate students’ progress?

Terms Members for the Board of Education are elected to a fouryear term. There are three out of five seats open for election in District 1, District 2, and District 5. There are no districts with uncontested candidates.

Candidate for District 1 Background: Dr. AultmanBettridge lives in Westminster with her husband Glen and son, Will, who is in the eighth grade. All three Bettridge are Colorado natives, moving to Jefferson County because of its excellent school system. She has dedicated her entire career in program and policy analysis and extensive volunteer hours to improving the lives of children. Contact: Email; Phone 303717-2395; website 1) I would describe my leadership style as analytical, thoughtful, and collaborative. I enjoy working with others to make decisions based on evidence and the consideration of a variety of perspectives. 2) I have over 20 years of experience in analyzing programs and policies that impact the lives of children, youth and families. I have experience in analyzing public policy through different views and making recommendations that lead to meaningful improvement. My communication skills allow me to effectively listen and respond to district stakeholders. 3) I believe the district needs to expand its communication and engagement of parents as partners in education. I also believe that bridging the achievement gap is of vital importance to our community. 4) Part of my campaign has been to meet with city mayors and members of city councils, as well as local business leaders. I believe that effective ongoing communication and face to face interaction with these groups is necessary to strengthen partnerships within the district. 5) I believe that inBloom has the potential to be an important tool in personalizing educational goals for students and helping teachers and parents monitor progress more effectively. It must however be implemented in such a way to protect student’s privacy and confidentiality.


Candidate for District 1 Background: A Colorado native and graduate of Arvada High School, Julie met her husband at North Arvada Jr. High, and Williams has been married for 28 years with two children. One child has autism, the other is gifted. Currently, she serves as co-chair of SEAC the Special Education Advisory Committee to Jeffco. Contact: Phone 303- 829-2532; website WilliamsForJeffcoSchools. com 1) Open, honest and sincere. 2) Honest, responsible, communicator who listens, acts and respects, organized, flexible, plans, motivates and is effective. 3) Jeffco areas of improvement are to implement open door negotiations, turnaround interventions for struggling schools, increase and replicate high performing schools including charters, option schools and online options. 4) All options should be open using common sense and simple solutions where the communities voice is heard and valued 5) I am in favor of a dashboard to assist parents and teachers communicate but NOT an international data collection system that has a disclaimer stating they are responsible if there is a breach in security, our district would be responsible. Our children and teacher’s information is private and should be protected. Undisclosed data points? One should ask; Why do they need this information to teach our children?



Candidate for District 2 Background: Co-founder and longtime executive director of Second Wind Fund. Holds a law degree. Has served Jeffco Schools in a variLamontagne ety of leadership capacities over the last decade. His wife, Suzanne, teaches chemistry at Lakewood High School, and both his children attend Jeffco Schools. Contact: Phone 303-517-6368; Email; website 1) Constructive, collaborative, balanced. 2) I have a track record of proven leadership in getting results for kids in our community. As a cofounder and longtime executive director of Second Wind Fund, I brought together thousands of families, scores of businesses, faith communities, and civic organizations with Jeffco Schools for the well-being and safety of our kids. I’ve also worked collaboratively and effectively on the board of The Jefferson Foundation and on Jeffco Schools’ Strategic Planning and Advisory Council. 3) Jeffco Schools face several fundamental changes, including new content standards, student assessments, teacher evaluations, questions around teacher compensation, and more. If managed effectively, these changes could have a great long-term impact toward improving student achievement and the quality of education we deliver to our kids. 4) I would continue to utilize great working relationships with leaders across the county and ensure the formation of a regular twoway feedback group between the schools and the cities. 5) I’ve spoken with many teachers who value the potential efficiency and evaluation power of inBloom. If there are appropriate assurances and plans around data security and privacy concerns, inBloom could prove to be a useful tool to help our teachers better meet the needs of each individual Jeffco student.

Candidate for District 2 Background: John Newkirk is a 45-year Jefferson County resident and a graduate of the Jeffco schools. After earning an engineering deNewkirk gree from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, he returned to Jefferson County and started a business. John’s wife is a Golden High School graduate and they currently have three daughters in public schools. Contact: Email; website www. 1) Listen, Listen, Decide. 2) I’ve founded and run two successful Jeffco businesses, so I know how to allocate resources and minimize waste. I have 20 years of experience as a volunteer with nonprofits and youth, so I know how to engage and work with community members. I have executive experience, so I know how to set goals and assure they are met. Lastly, I am a proud Jeffco graduate, so I know from personal experience how important Jeffco teachers can be in our lives. 3) Jefferson County schools should assure that all students have access to the best possible education and that our resources are spent in the classroom. 4) School board decisions should be inspired by thoughtful community conversations that value all opinions while focusing on what’s best for our students. I would ask for more joint city council/school board meetings as well as study sessions where the business community is invited to discuss the skills needed to employ Jeffco graduates. 5) I’m not in favor of any system that collects sensitive student/parent information and uploads it to a national database. inBloom has not been tested as a method to evaluate student progress and we don’t yet know its total cost.

Jeffco School Board GORDON “SPUD” VAN DE WATER

Candidate for District 5 Background: Parent and grandparent with three decades of education research and policy experience; 18 years running Van de Water his own business; 15 years staffing education boards; 25 years serving on boards; four postsecondary degrees; and seven years of military leadership training. Contact: Email spud4jeffcokids@; website 1) Collaborative, thoughtful, dynamic. 2) I am an active listener, an astute questioner, a seeker of common ground, a future oriented thinker, an experienced analyst, a strategic planner, a trained researcher, a confident decision maker 3) My three top areas are: 1) continuous improvement in overall student achievement; 2) closing the achievement gap; and 3) a Board of Education where all five members work collaboratively on behalf of our 85,000 students. 4) I will support current and future collaborative projects like the Lakewood Boys & Girls Club that build the academic, athletic, and artistic talents of our students. 5) Technology is a tool the district provides its teachers and principals to do their jobs better. The current pilot project does not collect data; it organizes several databases the district already possesses so student academic data is more easily retrieved and can be formatted into a classroom dashboard to support learning. Security and privacy issues are clearly important in this work. The pilot is designed to meet all federal and industry standards for security and privacy. I support the pilot process and look forward to the recommendation of the district’s Data Management Advisory Committee in January 2014.

18835 W. 62nd Ave


Candidate for District 5 Background: A Colorado native, Ken and his wife Deb have four children. Three graduated from public schools, and the youngest Witt is at Columbine. Has a degree in mathematics from CU Denver, has run profitable businesses and been responsible for data security at companies like Newmont Mining. Contact: Email / Website; phone 720.383.4KEN (4536) / Facebook WittForJeffcoSchools 1) Visionary, thoughtful, respectful. 2) I have the skills to set measurable goals, track progress, provide feedback and help ensure the organization delivers results within budget. I have security and technology experience; I know how to leverage technology to improve efficiencies while keeping data safe. I know how to minimize waste, balance competing priorities and make tough decisions. I work well with people. 3) Recognize and reward great teachers and principals; reduce wait lists by replicating successful programs; reduce remediation rates; and direct money to the classroom. 4) I would include representatives from city councils, chambers of commerce, and other community and civic organizations on committees and in board discussions. I would seek input from business and community leaders on what skills are needed for successful employment. 5) InBloom is the wrong technology solution. It will be hard to ensure student and teacher privacy. Parents won’t have enough information about the lessons their children receive. Costs may escalate as the district becomes committed to the platform.

A look at last journeys of life “Knocking on Heaven’s Door: The Path to a Better Way of Death” By Katy Butler Scribner $25 / $28.99 Canada 322 pages Your mind’s made up. There’s no going back once you’ve made a choice between Door Number One or Door Number Two. You’re not a waffler, you weighed pros and cons, and you’re confident you picked correctly. Or not. Indeed, the worst part about making a decision can be the regret that’s possible at

the end of the choice. And in the new book “Knocking on Heaven’s Door” by Katy Butler, a seemingly no-brainer decision tears a family apart. Jeff Butler cheated death many times. As a child, he narrowly missed dying in a car accident. In World War II, he lost an arm, but not his life. And in November 2001, at age 79, he suffered a stroke that nearly killed him. A year later, he received a pacemaker. And that, says his daughter Katy, kept him alive but didn’t “prevent his slide into

dementia, incontinence, near-muteness, misery, and helplessness.” Jeff and his wife Val were forward thinkers. He was a college professor. She was a perfectionist with fierce drive. They had been “in control of their lives, and they did not expect to lose control of their deaths.” But that’s exactly what happened: as Jeff’s health continued to decline, his abilities dwindled and his cognizance weakened – all of which he was aware. He indicated dismay at his diminished life and said that he’d “unfortunately” lived too long. On the other side of the country, Katy Butler worried. She’d always been closer to her father than to her mother, but arguments and old hurts continued to sting. Still, she flew home to Connecticut to help because she was, after all, their daughter – statistically, the one who bore the brunt of parenting a parent. But as Jeff’s dementia worsened, so did Val’s tolerance and her health. She was “stoic,” but impatient, snappish and exhausted, and only accepted outside help when she became overwhelmed. Butler says she knew her mother “clouted” her father, and shouted at him in frustrated anger. By this time, Butler was convinced that the pacemaker her father had wasn’t the medical miracle it was meant to be. And she learned that pacemakers could be turned off … So much went through my mind as I read this beautiful, emotionally brutal book. With sorrow, grace, and growing exasperation, author Katy Butler writes of her father’s long, messy death; her mother’s

quiet, dignified passing; and the parallel story of how modern medicine, drug companies, and government rules promoted the former. That’s a lot of hard reading, made gentler with Butler ’s Buddhist values and serenity. And yet, it’s not easy to avoid outrage as she points out the unfairness of aging, the cruelty of physical decline, and the knowledge that those – and the surety of caretaking – are somewhat inevitable for many Baby Boomers today. This is a stunning book, truthful and its dignified, and it could be a conversationstarter. If there’s a need for that in your family – or if you only want to know what could await you – then read “Knocking on Heaven’s Door.” You won’t regret it.

Golden nets win over shorthanded Green Mountain Young Rams team needs to learn how to finish By Daniel Williams GOLDEN - Golden Demons boys’ tennis stayed at the top of league standings with a dominant 7-0 victory over shorthanded Green Mountain Thursday, at Golden High School. The Demons dropped only a single set as they rebounded from an upset loss to Wheat Ridge two days before, making a statement in 4A Region 3. “We definitely didn’t play our best a couple days ago against Wheat Ridge but we rebounded today with a pretty solid effort,” Golden coach Brad Nash said. Green Mountain’s No. 1 singles junior Travis Martin missed the match and was forced to forfeit but it didn’t matter because the Demons’ 10 other varsity players all played well. Only two matches were heavy contested as Golden’s No. 2 doubles team of senior Adam Huff and junior Christopher Gilas managed to hang on for a 6-4, 6-4 victory over Green Mountain senior Trace Mulbarry and junior Justin Akiyama. In addition, Green Mountain’s No. 3 doubles team of junior Shalil Jane and freshman Mike Wilson took the second set of their match 2-6 but still fell to junior Vincenzo Gomez and senior Kirk Golbert 6-4, 2-6, (10-7). The Rams (3-8, 2-6) ability to compete but not finish matches has been part of some of their struggles this season. In five of Green Mountain’s eight losses this season the team has won at least two matches. This says that the Rams are very close to beating most of the teams they play, they simply cannot finish opponents off. However, the Rams have only two seniors on their team and will return nine of 11 players next season. “We have been close and played some

Green Mountain No. 3 singles Spencer serves against Golden on Thursday. Photos by Daniel Williams tough matches all season long. But we are also a very young team. I think that all of our close losses can be close wins next season,” Green Mountain coach Stefan Bolton said. Golden (5-5, 5-2) doesn’t have the prettiest overall record — sitting at .500 — but it is also a product of coach Nash scheduling an extremely challenging non-league schedule to prepare his team for league play. Three of Golden’s five losses have come to powerhouse programs like Valor Christian, Colorado Academy and D’Evelyn.

Alameda falls to 0-5 while Jefferson improves to 6-0 D’Evelyn is red hot as season’s second half arrives By Daniel Williams Arvada: After a big win over Skyview the Arvada football team has suffered back-toback blowout loses. The Bulldogs were beaten at Evergreen 53-18 Friday and over their last two games Arvada has given up a total of 115 points.

Game season regions impacted by flooding A variety of outdoors news is surfacing at this time of year. Here is a sampling. Small game hunting licenses, Habitat stamps and waterfowl stamps are all required as fall hunting seasons approach. Hunting and fishing licenses now expire on March 30 each year. Licenses and stamps can be purchased at sporting goods license agent outlets or online at The Parks and Wildlife Division are diligent on pursuing those who violate state game laws and regulations. Two recent high profile investigations resulted in the arrests of 12 people all fined with Colorado hunting privileges forefitted. The State’s Operation Game Thief program is the process leading to awareness, investigation and in many cases arrests. Many of the poachers are identified simply by the general public or other hunter’s anonymous calls of suspicious tips to 877-265-6648. Verizon phone users can call #OGT. US Fish & Wildlife Service work with the state since many poaching cases involve out of state individuals. The recent devastating flood have

caused considerable damage to many game management units, specifically 7, 8, 9, 19, 191, 20, and 29, S1, S19, S37 and S57. Hunters with licenses in those areas may be eligible for refunds or preference point reinstatements. For those affected, call your local Division of Parks and Wildlife Office or Headquarters at 303-297-1192. If your hunting interests lie in upland game birds and you typically make the trek to Kansas or Nebraska it is a good to follow-up early with hunting organizations in those states and to check out Colorado pheasant hunting opportunities. The Kansas Sport Hunting Association at 785-296-2009 or online at will start your planning. Colorado Pheasants Forever is busy promoting and educating hunters on this states op-

portunity. Pikes Peak Pheasant / Quail Forever Youth Outreach and Chukar Hunt are set for Oct. 13. Call 719-5937770 to participate in the hunt with your young hunters.
