Schools may apply for safety funding Application deadline for piece of $10 million is Sept. 17 BY ALEX DEWIND AND JESSICA GIBBS STAFF WRITERS

The Douglas County Board of Commissioners has confirmed it will allow local schools to suggest how to spend funds the board pledged for school safety through an application process, but the commissioners will have final say over what spending is and is not approved. Meanwhile, the Douglas County School District’s board of education has said it is still too early know if, and for what purposes, the public school district will pursue county money. The district has already allocated $429,000 for seven additional school resource officers and has hired 80 new counselors. Money from a $250 million bond approved by voters last November is going toward physical security improvements in schools. Commissioners on Aug. 7 formally announced they would allow public, charter and private schools to submit SEE SAFETY, P6

‘Cutthroat Kitchen’ winner hired by Laszlo Hotel Leah Eveleigh will take on the role of executive chef of the Laszlo’s three restaurants

Get to know Chef Leah

BY NICK PUCKETT NPUCKETT@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

A former “Cutthroat Kitchen” champion and local private chef has been hired as the Laszlo Hotel’s executive chef in charge of its three restaurants. Leah Eveleigh, of Highlands Ranch, will oversee all cooking operations at downtown Parker’s coming boutique hotel, including for the hotel’s built-in restaurants: Rick’s Prime Steak and Seafood, Martinis on the Half Shell and The Upper Deck. Eveleigh runs a private catering business serving mostly Filipino cuisine. Eveleigh moved to Colorado from the Philippines about 20 years ago. “There’s no Filipino food around here. I have clients say ‘Leah, I can’t afford to have you cater all the time. Where can I get your food?’ That’s what I’m excited about,” Eveleigh said. “I’m in my happy place so you can come now and I can cook for you.” The Laszlo Hotel is nearing completion. According to hotel officials, they will begin hiring staff in the coming weeks and already have different events planned for the fall season and a New Year’s Eve bash. The Laszlo will cover a variety of cuisines, from seafood to breakfast burritos; oysters to burgers; draft beer to hand-made martinis. Eveleigh hopes to sprinkle in Filipino favorites alongside the traditional steakhouse classics and fan-favorite pub foods. Eveleigh will serve Filipino eggrolls as an appetizer and an “ahi tuna tower,” which Eveleigh said fits her vision for the hotel of being a place to find trendy foods.

Leah Eveleigh will take over as executive chef for three of the five restaurants moving into the Laszlo Hotel, including Martinis on the Half Shell, Rick’s Prime Steak and Seafood and the Upper Deck, a sports bar and grill. COURTESY PHOTO “Every day, it’s going to be like `Wow. That’s something that’s unique,’” Eveleigh said. “It’s going to be the place to be…It’s going to be awesome for Parker because there’s nothing else like it.” The restaurants will have standard menus — with steak, seafood, burgers — accompanied by special seasonal menus. Some of Eveleigh’s unique Filipino creations can be found there. The Laszlo Hotel will include special off-menu items as well for those in the know. “Laszlo is a lifestyle. It is an event,” said Candice Coleridge, the Laszlo’s director of food and beverage. “Every time you visit us, from the moment you walk in, we’re not just a place you go stay or go dine or go experience, and that’s really important. I want something that passes your table and you say ‘I want that. I need to be a part of that.’” Eveleigh competed and won season two, episode six of “Cutthroat Kitch-

en.” The reality cooking show, hosted by Food Network’s Alton Brown, pits four chefs against each other for a cash prize. The four competitors are handed $25,000 each to use as they wish. They can either use the money to improve their dishes or sabotage their counterparts. They compete in three rounds to finally determine a winner, who walks away with whatever is left of the $25,000. Eveleigh hopes to make the Laszlo a trendy place for people from all over the area. But, she said, she took this job because she wants to share her creations with her neighbors in the community. You can follow Eveleigh on Instagram @chefleaheveleigh. Follow the Laszlo Hotel on Facebook or visit TheLaszloHotel.com. “I wanted to share the energy I have and all the culinary training I learned,” Eveleigh said. “It’s so much, and I’m willing to work hard to get this running.”

Students were back in action on Aug. 7 as school began for the 2019-20 school year in Douglas County. At Cresthill Middle School in Highlands Ranch students gathered outside the building, where they hugged friends, mingled with teachers and compared class schedules ahead of the 7:30 a.m. start time. For seventh-grader Rowan Anderson, 12, it was the start to a new school year in a new community. “I moved from Georgia,� he said, adding he had a good summer and was ready to start the school year.

A warm welcome back to STEM School Letter sent to families outlines changes for the year ahead BY ALEX DEWIND ADEWIND@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Students and staff of STEM School Highlands Ranch were welcomed back from summer break with hundreds of hand-painted wooden stars. Each a foot long, adorned in messages of encouragement and cheerful drawings, the stars had been strategically placed along fences and around school entrances. “Joy.” “Shine.” “This too shall pass.” Many of the STEM families were returning after tragedy struck on May 7, when a shooting left student Kendrick Castillo dead and eight others injured. Dina Barnum, a community member who does not have a child at STEM, initiated the star display to help STEM families transition back to school, she said. School administration reassured its community that in the new school year, there would be more mental health resources and heightened security measures. “We recognize that returning for the 2019-2020 academic year may bring

unique challenges for some,” a July letter sent to families on behalf of STEM administration said. “Please know we are available to provide whatever assistance we can.” The letter outlined several actions taken to ensure the wellbeing and safety of students and staff. Among those are not installing metal detectors, the letter says, due to knowledge of best practices in schools across the country.

Some of STEM’s new measures include: • An increased presence from the Douglas County Sheriff ’s Office for the first few weeks of school. • A full-time school resource officer from the sheriff ’s office and a fulltime private security guard to provide campuswide coverage. • A standing order for a sheriff ’s office off-duty deputy to direct traffic in morning and afternoon drive lines.

• The formation of a STEM Safety and Wellness Committee, chaired by a STEM board member and parent, which will review existing procedures and training that have been approved by the sheriff ’s office and the Douglas County School District Safety and Security Department. • Support for staff from AllHealth Network — which provides behavioral health care services — and additional training for teachers on supporting students after a traumatic event. • Mental health professionals working with students throughout the academic year.

Easy Qualify Mortgages for Seniors on Fixed Income

s your mortgage payment “strangling” you? Are you worried about which bills to pay on your fixed income? Is there no joy in the Golden years because your budget is so tight? A reverse mortgage may be the answer you have been seeking. A government insured loan product that allows you to pay off your current mortgage thereby eliminating your monthly mortgage payment can provide the budget breathing-room you need. Taxes and homeowner’s insurance must still be paid, but many seniors have found that not only can they eliminate their mortgage payment, they can also get tax-free cash to use for any purpose. Even if you don’t have a mortgage, you may be “house rich and cash poor.” You have paid into your home for many years and have accumulated housing wealth that can only be accessed if you sell. But now a reverse mortgage will allow you to access the equity in your home while you continue to own the home so you can get

said in a county news release. The Douglas County School Board discussed the commissioners’ proposal for the first time in public at a board meeting on Aug. 6. The consensus was that Superintendent Thomas Tucker should be the one to decide if the district moves forward with the application process. Board members recognized the value of the partnerships at play and expressed gratitude for the work that has gone into the commissioners’ proposal. They support the mental health initiatives on the table, which include more social-emotional sup- p o port and mental health training. i “There is a pot of money there. c To me, it’s just like applying for a grant,” board member Anne-Marie G Lemieux said, referring to the men- a p tal health resources. But school board members worry g about using an online application j process for something as sensitive as school security. Tucker, too, p s expressed concern with using a i process that could potentially be accessible to the public through an open records request. “We have said from day one that we will not do anything that compromises the safety of our schools,” Tucker said. “It has the opposite effect if it compromises the very people we are trying to protect.” Instead of an application process, school board President David Ray recommended entering into an intergovernmental agreement, or IGA, with the county, which both parties could negotiate through their attorneys and would “protect Ray some of that specificity.” The school board would have to approve the IGA. Board members supported the idea. “Ultimately, we have to have an IGA, and if it requires, or if an application requires too much specificity and does not move us completely forward with security, it actually is hurting us because we are revealing things that our security experts think should not be revealed,” board member Krista Holtzmann said. If the district receives pushback on its request for an IGA, Ray said he would support a decision to decline the commissioners’ offer for the funds. “It’s not worth it to compromise the safety of our kids to pursue that funding,” Ray said, adding, “It’s a hard thing to say. It would be unfortunate if procedurally there is a breakdown.” The next step for the district is to make clear how they will respond to the commissioners’ proposal. A timeline was not specified at the meeting. “Dr. Tucker has clarity in terms of how we move forward,” Ray said. Tucker echoed that statement and recognized the commissioners’ goal to fund some “unique things like emerging technology.” “I absolutely understand the position of the board, as well as the board and administration being appreciative of the funding,” Tucker said.

DA calls for measures to curb gun violence Brauchler says firearms laws must have ‘sharp teeth’ BY JESSICA GIBBS JGIBBS@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

In the days following a pair of highprofile mass shootings, one in Ohio and one in Texas, 18th Judicial District Attorney George Brauchler announced a multipronged plan to prevent gun violence in his jurisdiction. Brauchler The bulk of his approach, announced in a statement Aug. 6, will lean on existing Colorado gun laws to crack down

on illegal firearms transactions. But it also calls for legislation in 2020 that would strengthen penalties for illegal gun possession among felons and revamp the state’s mental-health hold system. “Our gun laws need to have teeth, sharp teeth,” Brauchler said regarding convicted felons who obtain guns. He has also requested funding from county commissioners in the 18th Judicial District — which comprises Arapahoe, Douglas, Elbert and Lincoln counties — for an additional investigator who would work with local agencies to probe illegal firearms transactions. Brauchler chided the nature of national debates over mass shooting and gun violence prevention that flare with each new tragedy. Debate surged nationwide the weekend of Aug. 3 following shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio. The shoot-

ings left a combined 31 people dead, the Associated Press reported. Brauchler’s announcement said his plans rely on “practical measures” that should “be quickly implemented here in Colorado.” “We must resist getting caught up in a debate of ‘Who is right?’ instead of ‘What is right?’ Rather than getting mired down in controversial and divisive legislation, I am committed to implementing measures in my jurisdiction now using tools the Legislature has already given,” he said. The announcement did not name any one piece of legislation in particular, but the 2019 state legislative session produced fiery battles in the gun rights arena. Colorado in April ushered in a contentious red flag law that has spurred talk of recall efforts against supporters like Douglas County Sheriff Tony

Spurlock, who passionately backed the legislation as it worked through the Democrat-controlled state Legislature in 2019. The act is named for fallen Douglas County Deputy Zackari Parrish. The red flag law allows a judge to order a person’s guns be removed if they are believed to a significant risk to themselves or others. The committee planning to recall Spurlock hopes to begin circulating petitions this fall. The 2019 bill was not the first attempt at red flag legislation in Colorado. In the previous session, a similar bill was introduced but voted down. Brauchler, a Republican from Parker, supported the prior version but backed away from the 2019 version, citing concerns over differences between the two bills. SEE VIOLENCE, P10

Video-game studies don’t show link to violence Texas mass shooting puts theoretical connection under scrutiny again BY MAE ANDERSON ASSOCIATED PRESS

Do video games trigger violent behavior? Scientific studies have found no link. But the persistent theory is back in the headlines following the recent mass shooting in El Paso, Texas. An online manifesto thought to be authored by the suspected gunman briefly mentioned the combat game Call of Duty. Then President Trump weighed in, charging that “gruesome and grisly video games” contribute to a “glorification of violence.” Trump’s statements were more reserved compared with his last brush with the subject in 2018, when he called video games “vicious” and summoned game-industry executives to meet at the White House, to little lasting effect. The Entertainment Software Association, the biggest video game trade group, reiterated its position that there is no causal connection between video games and violence.

“More than 165 million Americans enjoy video games, and billions of people play video games worldwide,” the group said in a statement. “Yet other societies, where video games are played as avidly, do not contend with the tragic levels of violence that occur in the U.S.” Activision Blizzard did not immediately respond to a request for comment about Call of Duty. What does the research show? “There are no longitudinal studies that show a link between violence and video games,” said Benjamin Burroughs, a professor of emerging media at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. “Certainly, there is no linkage to gun violence.” Burroughs said that some studies show a short-term increase in aggressive thoughts and feelings after playing video games, but nothing that rises to the level of violence. “Plenty of gamers and get upset when they lose or feel the game was ‘cheating,’ but it doesn’t lead to violent outputs,” he said.

STUDIES FROM PAGE 9

teenagers who played violent video games showed higher levels of emotional arousal but less activity in the parts of the brain associated with the ability to plan, control and direct thoughts and behavior. Patrick Markey, a psychology professor at Villanova University who focuses on video games, found in his research that men who commit severe acts of violence actually play violent video games less than the average male. About 20% were interested in violent video games, compared with 70% of the general population, he explained in his 2017 book “Moral Combat: Why the War on Violent Video Games Is Wrong.” Another study by Markey and his colleagues showed that violence tends to dip when a new violent movie or video game comes out, possibility because people are at home playing the game or in theaters watching the movie. “The general story is people who play video games right after might be a little hopped up and jerky but it doesn’t fundamentally alter who they are,” he said. “It is like going to see a sad movie. It might make you cry but it doesn’t make you clinically depressed.” Why does this theory persist? The theory persists in part because politicians on both sides of the aisle have taken it up as an easy target, since it lacks a powerful lobby like, say, the National Rifle Association. In 2013, after the shooting at Sandy Hook

August 15, 2019A Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, Vice President Joe Biden held three days of wide-ranging talks on gun violence prevention, including a meeting with video game industry executives. After the 2013 meetings wrapped, the White House called on research on the effect of media and video games on gun violence but nothing substantial came out of that. “Politicians on both sides go after video games it is this weird unifying force,” Markey said. “It makes them look like they are doing something.” Another reason, according to Markey, is that video games can look disturbing to people who aren’t gamers. “They look scary. But research just doesn’t support that there’s a link” to violent behavior, he said. Do video games need a ratings system? Actually, they already have one dating back to the 1990s. That didn’t stop Trump from calling for one in 2018. Following an outcry over violent games such as 1992’s Mortal Kombat, the Entertainment Software Association created a ratings board in 1994 to assign ratings ranging from “E” for “Everyone” to “Adults Only” for those 18 and older. The ratings suggest an age range and describe the possibly objectionable features. The “mature” rating, for example, indicates the game is “generally suitable for ages 17 and up” and may have “intense violence, blood and gore, sexual content and/or strong language.” In 2011, the Supreme Court rejected a California law banning the sale of violent video games to children. The decision found that video games, like other media, are protected by the First Amendment.

VIOLENCE FROM PAGE 7

Here’s more on what Brauchler says should be done to curb gun violence in the 18th Judicial District and Colorado, per his Aug. 6 announcement: Brauchler says there are existing Colorado laws aimed at denying firearms “to those in our neighborhoods who should not have them.” He names felons, domestic violence perpetrators and the dangerously mentally ill as examples of people who are prohibited by law from purchasing firearms. “But a significant number of them do it anyway,” he said. “Those cases do not always make it to court. I want to see gun sellers and police working together to more vigorously enforce those existing laws.” Brauchler has assigned his second-in-command within the district attorney’s office, Assistant District Attorney Matt Maillaro, to lead an effort among local and federal law enforcement agencies, the Colorado Bureau of Investigation and holders of federal firearms licenses “to create an enhanced approach to the detection, investigation and prosecution of these crimes.” Brauchler hopes to find bill sponsors who will take up legislation to strengthen penalties for felons who obtain weapons illegally. He says felons who illegally possess

firearms can be convicted of a lowlevel felony and leave court with probation, multiple times. “Even less penalties exist if a felon illegally attempts to purchase a firearm by lying to a seller,” he said. He says felons who attempt to illegally acquire a firearm, successfully acquire a firearm, and those who provide them with the firearms illegally, should face prison time. He also calls on the Legislature to “fix our broken and ineffective 72-hour mental health hold law. Its failures do not keep us safer and do nothing to help those most in need.” The announcement pointed to Colorado’s painful history with gun violence, naming the 2012 Aurora theater shooting, the 2017 killing of Douglas County Sheriff ’s Deputy Zackari Parrish and the STEM School Highlands Ranch shooting, which occurred just three months ago. Each tragedy drew national attention and happened within the 18th Judicial District. The announcement also noted the close proximity of the 1999 Columbine High School massacre to the district. “There is no debate that we need to keep firearms out of the hands of people who legally should not have them. We need laws on the books that promise punishment of people who knowingly thwart those rules,” Brauchler said. “I urge those who share these beliefs to join me in implementing them.”

Now in its 91st year, Western Welcome Week began as “Homecoming,” providing an opportunity for family and friends to gather. Over the years Western Welcome Week has grown to a 10-day celebration with over 35 events and involving events presented by over 30 organizations. These organizations help to create the honored tradition of Western Welcome Week.

CHEF FROM PAGE 2

cuisines…and one of his favorite dish was called sisig, which in my version will be flambe, pork belly and other parts of the pig that are not used (as much). It’s very tender. You put eggs on it — it’s like a dish you need to drink a beer with. Filipino food is a lot of influences, mostly from Spaniards (who colonized parts of the Philippine Islands for the past 300 years). That being said, we speak a little bit of Spanish and a lot of our dishes… have a Spanish name. With that, there are more Spanish and also a lot of Chinese influence and Southeast Asia influence. We have a mixture of all these bold flavors. We eat foods simultaneously — salad, appetizer, desert — we put it all on one plate. It’s not spicy at all. It has bold flavors, either salty and sweet flavors, and it’s really a nice mix. We will have eggrolls for our opening. Those are things I’m excited to share. That’s how we connect with each other — gathering. We eat food, tell stories and get to know what’s going on with everyone. It’s just close to my heart — cooking and sharing with others. I’m humbled, myself. How I got cooking When I was little, my mom was always cooking something... Being little, I would just tag along and see what she was doing. I didn’t really have any

intentions of cooking in the future. Somehow, it made sense to me, that passion. No matter how poor we were, when we would have guests, we would feed them. We would make something and that was the hospitality we had to offer — food. It took me a while to realize “I like to cook too!” So I started to experiment as a little girl. My advice for young chefs Follow your heart. Follow what you’re happy doing and really pursue that. Listen to yourself and shut out all the other noises. Be yourself and be in tune with that voice inside you, whatever that may be and just go for it. Work hard as much as you can. At the end of the day, do one more thing. My thing is doing 110%. If I miss that last 10%, it (negates) that 100%. Really, pursuing what you’re passionate about and never, ever give up. Put yourself out there and take a risk. Show up. Be punctual. What I learned from winning Cutthroat Kitchen Without formal training, I went into this competition, being filmed and all that, and won. So, (I thought) what are other things I can do to really step up? I enrolled myself into culinary school. I had a scholarship at the Auguste Escoffier of Culinary Arts in Boulder. I did that full-time. It was amazing how it opened my eyes to classical French technique and the farm-to-table concept. That’s how I became more of a seasoned chef. I really had a lot of time to talk to myself to see if that was something I wanted to do.

VOICES

The last, final diatribe on an unneeded, unnecessary word

, like, give up. Once a year for the past eight years, I have written a column about the extra-grammatical use of the word “like” and QUIET its part in the ruination of the English DESPERATION language. Each column has included the disclaimer that I am an imperfect grammarian myself, and I am not the ultimate arbiter of what is and is not good English. But I know what I Craig Marshall like, as it were. I thought by now Smith “like” would have gone away, but I see and hear that

it hasn’t and now consider it a lost cause. Therefore, this will be my final diatribe. I refer anyone who cares about language to John McWhorter. McWhorter is associate professor of English and comparative literature at Columbia University, where he teaches linguistics. He wrote “The Evolution of `Like’: How the ubiquitous, often-reviled word associated with young people and slackers represents the everchanging English language” for The Atlantic (November 25, 2016). It is far more insightful than I am capable of being, but I simply think “like” is an example of a dreadful verbal laziness. There’s a title of a chapter in one of

McWhorter’s books — “Words on the Move” — that summarizes the problem: “When Words Stop Being Words.” It’s natural to hem and haw, and stumble a bit in casual conversations. Everyone at a dinner table doesn’t speak in concise sentences, like they often do in films. We stop, we start over, change in mid-word to something else. McWhorter calls that “easing” language. But for some, that eased language is all the time. I have decided to concede to it after a recent experience in a dentist’s chair, which, for many, would be torture enough. I was reclined in a chair, numbed to the gills, and with a contraption in my mouth. Helpless, powerless.

On one side of me was the dentist, who was removing a crown ahead of replacing it. On the other side of me was an assistant. (Both are very professional, highly competent, and personable.) The assistant began a conversation that included three “likes” per sentence, at a minimum. It was the deep dish of agony, and I told Jennifer that it was worse than the excavation that was going on in my mouth. I imagined I was hearing dialogue from “Clueless.” It’s everywhere: I read an interview with Megan Rapinoe. I watched an interview with Emilia Clarke. SEE SMITH, P13

Who’s the boss? You’re the boss

W LETTER TO THE EDITOR DCSD has made strides As a long time Douglas county resident, a parent of two Douglas county school district graduates, and as I look forward to the birth of my first grandchild, I am reminded once again of the importance of our local school board. I am looking forward to supporting pro-public education candidates who can continue the progress our current school board has achieved. I have personally appreciated the increased parent and community outreach efforts, the increased transparency and the hiring of an experienced, nationally honored superintendent. I was thrilled to see the passage of the bond and mill levy override to update and improve the structure and safety

our public school buildings and provide funding to give our teachers a long overdue raise, as well as funding for additional counselors and school resource officers. Great progress has been made in the past few years. Teacher retention has improved, and many of the destructive reform policies have been rewritten. Improvements take time and there is work yet to be done. My wish today is the same as it was 10 years ago: that the current and future students of Douglas county receive the same great public education that my children enjoyed. I encourage all my fellow empty nesters to pay attention, ask questions and then vote. Patricia Crowley Lone Tree

hether you are a business owner, an executive, a manager, or a supervisor with a team of people reporting to you, or you are someone who reports into another person, guess what? You are all still the boss. That’s right, you are all still the boss. What do I mean by that? I mean that regardless of our role or title, it is ultimately our responsibility to perform at the highest level possible for ourselves and our teams. And we do not WINNING strive for that just WORDS because we have to, we strive for that because we want to. If all we ever do is take orders from those in charge of us or above us in our department or by title, all we will ever do is live up to is their expectations and never our own. Michael Norton And we will probably find ourselves always reporting to someone else. Just think about this for a moment. Who does the CEO report to? Well if there is a board of directors, the CEO usually reports into the board. If the CEO only took the direction of the board and wasn’t innovative, driven, and inspiring, they probably wouldn’t be the CEO for much longer. And what

about the chairman of the board, who do they report to? They report to the shareholders, don’t they? Well if they didn’t hold themselves to a higher standard and constantly think of ways to improve productivity, revenues, and returns, they probably would be replaced. Chairmen, CEOs, owners, managers, and all level of personnel within an organization should always be thinking beyond what others expect of them when it comes to performance. As a matter of fact, all of us, personally and professionally would do well to think about how we can do better and achieve more than we have ever done or have accomplished before. We should always be thinking about how we could raise the bar for ourselves and not wait for a performance review or feedback from others. Pride of ownership isn’t just relevant for the ownership of a company; pride of ownership comes with owning and being held accountable to ourselves for the job that we are doing regardless of who we are working with or for, or what the job involves. Personal pride doesn’t mean we work more hours than we should, although it could if it means completing something that meets our own standards.

Investing 101: Don’t look for instant gratification

T

he media continues to satisfy our need for instant information, but how much is too much? Many folks tell me they are on information overload. Also, some news stories can make you feel inadequate if you don’t understand all the acronyms they use. Instead of empowering us as investors, this tweet type of news snippets that appear all day long on your FINANCIAL phone or computer STRATEGIES are not helping, they may actually be hurting your chances of being a good investor. Legendary investor Warren Buffett defines investing as “… the process of laying out money now to receive Patricia Kummer more money in the future.” My simple definition is to take risk now for future return. This would indicate that reward is not instant but takes time. This could be the disconnect from what we expect in our daily lives, which is usually instant gratification in everything from our first cup of cof-

NORTON FROM PAGE 12

Personal pride means that we don’t expect others to do our job. It means we hold ourselves accountable for completing the task or job at hand and getting it right. Personal pride means that once we are capable, we do not have to be told what to do, we know what is required and get it done. You know the saying, “You’re not the boss of me.” We usually hear that in a facetious or sarcastic tone, or when someone is angry with another person for trying to boss them around. But guess what, unless we take ownership for our actions and become our own boss in all that we do, someone else will really be the boss of us as we lose control of our own future. Who’s the boss? You’re the boss.

SMITH FROM PAGE 12

It’s in locker rooms, art galleries, “cool” restaurants. And it doesn’t mean a thing. “Like,” used correctly, is overused as well. I tried to get my students to say something else about their drawings than “I like it,” or “I don’t like it,” which are headlines without content. I gave up on “cool” a long, long time ago. I have likewise given up on “awesome.” I think there is hope that “no worries” and “no problem” will

fee to accessing the internet. Investing is putting money to work over time. This may be why it is so hard to stay committed to a strategy or plan if we don’t feel we are getting rewarded instantly. Do you look at the stock market more than once a day? Do you look at your investment accounts more than once a month? If so, you too may have fallen in the trap of thinking you should see results quickly. This can backfire if you make decisions to abandon a certain investment if it has not performed in the first month, quarter or year. This is where knowledge around portfolio construction could be helpful. It can help determine how many short, intermediate and long-term assets you need. It probably doesn’t make sense to look at the long-term holding (meaning 10 years plus) every day or even every month. This could cause you to sell prematurely and miss out on future benefits. It is important to understand at least the basics before you invest. Learn about paying yourself first by saving each month off the top of your paycheck instead of waiting to see if anything is left over after you take care of other expenses.

That’s right, you’re the boss. Now I wouldn’t go into work tomorrow and tell your manager that, or go home tonight and tell your spouse that, but I would recommend letting others see that you are driven, you are inspired, and you are attempting to do everything possible to create a brighter future. So how about you? Whether you are an owner, an executive, a manager, or if you report up to someone else, do you feel like you own your job and your success? If not, let me know. If you do, I would love to hear your story at gotonorton@gmail. com, and when we realize we are the boss and in control of a better tomorrow, it really will be a better than good week.

McWhorter says that easing is “the way that one signals warm connection, group membership,” and that makes perfect sense. Gang members talk to each other like gang members. Not like Mensa members.

Review lessons in compounding and how that takes time to multiply your balances. Revisit inflation and how that works against you and how even nominal inflation adds up during your lifetime. The next step is to identify goals and resources, and only then is it appropriate to start building a strategy for investing. Sometimes long-term goals lack incentive in this instant society, so consider this example of eight percent compounding: It requires investing almost $3,000 per month for a 50-year-old to attain $1 million by age 65. However, it only takes $190 per month for a 20-year-old to attain the same amount by 65. In this example the 50-year-old would have spent an additional $417,600 to reach the same goal. “Compound interest is the eighth wonder of the world. He who under-

stands it, earns it … he who doesn’t pays it,” says an aphorism that some attribute to Albert Einstein.

Meat alternatives grow in popularity Restaurant owners, health expert weigh in on benefits, challenges BY ALEX DEWIND ADEWIND@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

G

one are the days when vegans and vegetarians couldn’t order a hamburger on the menu. Alternative meat brands such as Impossible Foods and Beyond Burger are popping up in not only sit-down restaurants and grocery stores, but also fast food joints across the country. They call it the future of protein: the Beyond Burger uses a mix of legumes, oils, rice protein, potato starch and other vegan-friendly ingredients, whereas the Impossible Burger is made from mostly soy. Both substances are processed into a patty or sausage, or ground up into crumbles for recipes such as tacos. According to Forbes.com, the plantbased craze is on the rise, with 95% of U.S. grocery stores selling plantbased meat products and an increasing number of restaurants adding similar options to their menus. Wes Moralez, who owns the Brutal Poodle on South Broadway in Denver, decided to start serving the Beyond Burger in his heavymetal-themed restaurant earlier this year. The plant-based alternative looks and tastes like beef, he said, adding that the product fits his clientele. “Here we have a niche concept that revolves around heavymetal punk rock,” Moralez said. “In that scene, there are a ton of vegans and vegetarians.” But the growing popularity and limited supply of the products has presented challenges for some restaurants. That was the case for Curtis Baca, manager of Steuben’s in Arvada. “We would never be able to get them,” he said of the Impossible Burger. “So we couldn’t keep it on the menu.” Instead his restaurant serves a plant-based veggie burger that is made in-house. While he doesn’t see many plant-based eaters, the customers who try the burger alternative

Qdoba is one of many fast-food joints to carry Impossible meat. The plant-based option is said to taste and look like ground beef. ALEX DEWIND

tend to enjoy it, he said. Reasons for jumping on the plantbased bandwagon vary, but many people do so for the health and environmental benefits. Jerry Casados, a plant-based nutritionist from Parker, switched

his diet 12 years ago after several scares with heart disease, high blood pressure and weight gain. Rather than moving forward with more medical tests, he decided to try a strict plant-based diet, combined with medication, for 30 days. “My cholesterol dropped about 30 points,” Casados said. “My doctor said, ‘What did you do?’ I said, ‘I changed my diet,’ and that’s the last time I saw him.” Casados, who worked in information technology, went back to school to become a nutritionist and is now off all medication. He and his wife host a yearly summit to inform others on the benefits of plant-based eating. The approach, he said, is more holistic. “All your vitamins and minerals are in the plants themselves,” Casados said. “It heals the body in different ways.” When it comes to meat alternatives

WHERE TO TRY MEAT ALTERNATIVES • Burger King serves the Impossible Whopper. • Qdoba serves Impossible Foods’ plant-based beef alternative. • The Brutal Poodle, 1967 S. Broadway, Denver, serves the Beyond Burger. • Bar Louie, 6911 S. Vine St. #700, Centennial, serves the Impossible Burger. • C.B. & Potts, 43 Centennial Blvd., Highlands Ranch, serves the Impossible Burger. • Steuben’s, 7355 Ralston Road, Arvada, serves a plant-based meat substitute.

Detainees’ art on display in gallery on Santa Fe Drive White teacups bear impressions of flowers from creators’ homelands BY SONYA ELLINGBOE SELLINGBOE@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

The first arts collective with work exhibited in the new exhibit, “Collectivism” at Center for Visual Art, Metropolitan State University’s gallery at Santa Fe Drive and 10th Avenue is the Detainees at Guatanamo Bay Detention Center, which sets a visitor on edge a bit — who knew? A note says that as of May 2018, 40 men remained there. There are uniform white teacups decorated by prisoners with impressions of a flower of native origin in their country. Plus, we see photographs of those prisoners … Accompanying the white cups is a dazzling display of photographs of individual flowers, from their countries of origin. There is also a stack of postcards with repeats of those prints, accompanied by pencils and an invitation to write to one of those men. (A glass container is quite full of written postcards, awaiting stamps and cancellations.) One is immediately engaged in a way unlike what one generally feels upon entering a gallery. (Quiet antici-

Admission free. 303294-5207; msudenver.edu/cva. pation …) Proceed a bit farther into a darkened room where sprouting bean plants are unfurling and an assortment of small salt dough sculptures represent the Shattered Moon Alliance. And, there is an invitation to “Join the CVA Artist Collective,” next to an assortment of colored papers, tapes, colored pencils — all bright, new and inviting one to make something now. This new exhibit, “Collectivism,” was co-curated by CVA director Cecily Cullen, ceramist and MSU professor Tsehai Johnson and art department chair Deanne Pytlinski. It features local and Colorado artists’ collectives, and invitations to the visitor to engage with the artists … Many will be aware of the Ladies Fancywork Society due to its random public appearances. Here, the floorto-ceiling creation, “Our Lady,” is a riot of color, with bright knit and crocheted pieces, including doilies and potholders, linked together into a cozy garment for a giant. The longer left arm reaches to the rafters waving at all of us a greeting. “The Ladies

“Our Lady,” created by the Ladies Fancywork Society, stands tall at the Center for Visual Art, MSU’s gallery on Santa Fe Dr. The “Collectivism” exhibit includes works by Colorado collectives and others around the country — and farther. COURTESY OF CVA Fancywork Society (four members) is here to bring creatures into the world that are stuck in the Fiber Portal, aka The Yarn Hole and need help getting through,” one reads … The collective started with one in 2007. Distill Collective, Johnson and associate professor of art Michael Bernhardt, involves creating collaborative drawings via the mail.

Anschutz presents screening of ‘American Tragedy’ Documentary highlights mom of Columbine shooter’s journey to mental health advocate STAFF REPORT

The screening of “American Tragedy: Love is Not Enough,” a new documentary that follows Sue Klebold’s journey from realizing her son was one of the Columbine shooters to her becoming a mental health advocate, is set for Aug. 30. The film includes suicide loss survivors’ stories and professionals agreeing on a need for a major paradigm shift away from reliance on therapy for mental illnesses toward a more proactive, universal approach to mental wellness, according to a news release. Suicide, especially among teens, and mental health issues continue to be a daily problem in society. It is the hope of the makers of this film to increase awareness and action to curb this alarming trend, the release said.

Indeed, as Klebold concludes in the film, it was not love that was missing in her son’s life; it was an ability to cope with despair and suicidality. This topic is particularly urgent given that suicide is the leading cause of death for Coloradans between the ages of 10 and 24, the release said. Since 2006, suicides have risen 70 percent and mental illnesses 52 percent. Status quo is not working. American Tragedy has been accepted into the Heartland International Film Festival, an academy award qualifying film festival. If You Go Screening of “American Tragedy: Love is Not Enough,” followed by a discussion with Matt Mishkind, Sarah Davidon, suicide loss survivor moms, Katherine Sellery and film producer Lisa Sabey WHEN: Friday, Aug. 30, 5 p.m. and 7:10 p.m. WHERE: Anschutz Medical Campus Theater, 13121 E. 17th Ave., Aurora CONTACT: Lisa Sabey at 720-9895624 TICKETS: www.eventbrite.com/e/ american-tragedy-pre-release-screening-tickets-63812187972

The Bible Speaks – Housing It is distressing to hear that many low-income residents of Littleton may be forced to find new housing elsewhere (July 18 Independent). Having a house, a home, is central to our makeup as humans. It is one of the paradoxes of God that even though He is spirit & present everywhere, He has often chosen to “dwell” in a “house”. He dwelt in the Tabernacle during Israel’s sojourn from Egypt to Palestine & for years thereafter. Later He dwelt in Solomon’s Temple. He had a house, Herod’s Temple, in Jerusalem in Jesus’ day. During the future millennium, God will again dwell in a rebuilt temple in Jerusalem. So where does He dwell today? Today God’s house is not a building but a people, the Church. Christians are the temple of God (1 Cor 6:19). Christ lives in us (John 14:20b, Col 1:27) Praise God for that purifying truth. hfsmail@basicisp.net

Denver Zoo welcomes African lion cub

ARAPAHOE COUNTY

CONVERSATIONS Planning our future together

Arapahoe County needs your input Arapahoe County is one of the fastest growing counties in Colorado. And why wouldn’t it be? Our cities and communities feature some of the best quality of life our state has to offer. But accommodating that success, and the growth it brings with it, requires careful analysis of our current situation and a focus on what’s best for all our residents going forward. It means planning our future together.

An African lion cub was born this summer at Denver Zoo to mom Neliah, 7, and dad Tobias, 3. Although the cub won’t make his or her public debut until later this summer, guests can still catch a glimpse of Neliah and her cub on the TV screens in Pahali Ya Simba. COURTESY OF DENVER ZOO

Dad Tobias’ arrival to Predator Ridge in 2018 proves fruitful for species survival plan STAFF REPORT

The birth of an African lion cub this summer has given Denver Zoo a lot to roar about. The cub, whose sex has yet to be determined, was born July 25 to mom Neliah, 7, and dad Tobias, 3, according to a news release. Animal care staffers say mom and cub are both healthy and active, and are bonding behind the scenes in Benson Predator Ridge. Although the cub won’t make his or her public debut until later this summer, guests can still catch a glimpse of Neliah and her cub on the TV screens during the daily 2 p.m. “Pahali Ya Simba” lion demonstration at Predator Ridge, the release said. “This is Neliah’s second time around as a mom, so we were confident she’d show all the correct behaviors with her new cub,” assistant curator of predators Matt Lenyo said in the release. “She immediately started grooming and nursing the cub, which is exactly what we hoped she would do.” Half of Africa’s lions have disappeared in the past 25 years and the species faces growing threats from poaching, loss of prey and habitat destruction, the release said. The cub’s birth is a huge success for the Lion Species Survival Plan, which ensures

healthy, genetically diverse populations of lions within Association of Zoos and Aquariums institutions, and is managed by Denver Zoo’s vice president for animal care, Hollie Colahan. The species survival plan recommended that Tobias be moved to Denver Zoo in 2018 as a potential mate for Neliah and her daughter, Kamara, and was introduced to the three lions in the zoo’s female pride. “Tobias hasn’t fathered any cubs previously, which makes his genetics important to the AZA lion population,” said Colahan, who also serves as the program leader for the African Lion SAFE (Saving Animals from Extinction) Program. “The fact that he’s already successfully mated with one of our females speaks to the work our lion team put in to make Tobias feel comfortable in his new home in such a short period of time.” Neliah and the cub will stay behind the scenes for at least one to two months to give them time to bond and gradually introduce the cub to the rest of the pride. They’ll primarily stay in their den box, which the animal care provides to mimic the space Neliah would seek out to give birth in the wild. Neliah will still have access to other holding areas behind the scenes, but the addition of the den box gives her a sense of security for her and her cub. In the meantime, footage of Neliah and the cub in their den box will be shown on the TV screens in the Pahali Ya Simba building in Benson Predator Ridge. Follow Denver Zoo on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for regular updates and to find out when you can come see the cub for the first time.
