Economic development partnership CEO retires

MY NAME IS

HANNAH PEIFFER

Artist and Colorado native descended from pioneers Miner’s daughter When I was born I lived in Victor, a mining ghost town in the mountains, south of Cripple Creek. It’s a big part of my identity. There were hardly any people there, and I had the freedom to wander around an abandoned city by myself. I would explore empty buildings and hike around in the hills. It made me care about Colorado in a different way from other people. I’m really more of a city person, but it made me care a lot about the parts of Colorado that aren’t cities. Gold Rush days My dad’s side of the family came to Colorado in the 1890s, during the Cripple Creek gold rush. My ancestor Vernon Peiffer wasn’t a miner, though. He was a businessman and politician, and opened a bottling

company and soda shop. The family legend is that he also made alcohol during Prohibition. Several generations of Peiffer men after him were miners, including my dad. My heritage makes me feel two ways about Colorado’s growth: I understand people have always come here for opportunities and to work hard. Colorado’s always been exploited for its resources, whether it’s mining or tourism or fracking or tech. That will always happen, but I feel like there’s something unique and special about Colorado that some recent transplants don’t appreciate. Some of the previous generations who moved here for mining, they might have had a greater reverence for the land, because the land was providing their money.

How should city slice up funding pie for parks, trails? Among task force recommendations: improving parks and buying land BY DAVID GILBERT DGILBERT@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

As development reshapes the look of Littleton, the city’s Open Space Task Force has developed specific priorities for open-space funding. The task force, convened in summer 2018, sought to synthesize a slew of previous reports to come up with a big-picture plan for the places Littleton plays. Highest on the list: developing and renewing existing parks, which task force member Keith Reester, also the city’s public works director, said have seen years of deferred maintenance. “We’ve got a bunch of parks with no sidewalks to them,” Reester said at a March 5 study session that covered the task force’s report. Parks will be the focus of two city grant applications this year, Reester said. In one application, the city and South Suburban Parks and Recreation District — which operates the majority of Littleton’s parks — will each contribute a quarter-million dollars to revamp Harlow Park, which sits at Belleview Avenue and Lowell Boulevard, if Arapahoe County ponies up

another half million. “We’ve got a 30-year-old playground there,” Reester said. In another application, the city will offer $10,000 and Littleton Public Schools will offer $51,400 if the county will throw in another $343,600 to upgrade the playground at Euclid Middle School. The school district is an important partner with the city in park development, Reester said, because cities without such a partnership tend to declare school playgrounds off-limits to the general public. Littleton’s agreement gives everyone access. “There’s not another playground in a two-mile radius” around Euclid, Reester said. The task force also looked at how the city should slice up open-space funding it gets from the county. The city is currently sitting on roughly $2.7 million saved up from a county tax “share-back” program, the report says. The city also receives another $1.2 million a year, some of which goes to maintaining South Platte Park. The task force recommended divvying up the reserves and the annual income two ways: For the reserves, the task force recommended setting aside $1 million — about 37.5 percent — to be ready to acquire property that comes up for sale. Another 41.25 percent should go to park renewal and the remainder, about 21.25 percent or about $500,000, should

go to trails and trail connections. Of the annual income, the task force recommended putting a quarter — about $250,000 — toward the land acquisition fund, another quarter to trails and trail connections, and the remaining half to park renewal. Councilmember Karina Elrod expressed concern that the trails allocation was too low. “All the studies that are being done recognize that it’s a huge focus to enhance trails and connectivity,” Elrod said. Mayor Debbie Brinkman said she was comfortable with the funding

allocations, saying land acquisition is important. “Land is getting a lot more expensive,” Brinkman said, adding that the pace of development means it’s important to snatch up land when possible. “The risk involved in not (buying land) is greater than the risk of doing it.” Overall, Reester said, Littleton should be proud of where it stands with open space. “There’s open space throughout the city,” Reester said. “We’ve been fortunate to create a network of open space that spans the community.”

Meals on Wheels needs a new home — fast Nonprofit that delivers meals to homebound people has until Christmas to find a new kitchen

HOW TO HELP

‘They’re so special to me’

TLC Meals on Wheels is in the process of organizing a formal fundraising campaign for a new kitchen, said executive director Diane McClymonds. In the meantime, you can donate to the group through their website: https://tlcmealsonwheels.org/donate/ lenge like this before.”

BY DAVID GILBERT DGILBERT@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

TLC Meals on Wheels has helped keep thousands of seniors and people with disabilities in their homes. Now, the nonprofit needs the community’s help to find them a home of their own. TLC, now in its 50th year, has operated out of the old Ames Elementary School in Centennial for the past decade, using the cafeteria and kitchen to prepare hundreds of meals every day to distribute to homebound people. But a Littleton Public Schools bond passed in 2018 calls for tearing down and rebuilding Ames before reopening it as an elementary school, and recent architectural planning means TLC Meals on Wheels has to be out by Christmas. That means the group has to find or build an affordable large-scale commerical kitchen in the south metro area — fast. And it’s not going to be cheap. “This is huge,” said Diane McClymonds, TLC’s executive director. “This organization has never had a chal-

Caseload, costs growing Though plans are still evolving, McClymonds said it’s looking like they’ll need $2 million or more to lease or buy a new building and outfit it with a suitable kitchen. She called it a heavy lift for a group with an annual budget of $700,000 — most of which goes directly to food purchase, preparation and distribution. TLC prepared 128,000 meals last year, McClymonds said, distributed to 813 clients across the south metro area. The caseload has been growing in recent years, said Kathy Kreidler, the president of TLC’s board of directors. The group is currently delivering about 450 meals a day, Kreidler said — about double the caseload in 2009 when they moved into Ames. Recipients are asked to donate what they can toward the full cost of a meal, which is $4. Nobody is turned down for being unable to pay. In the past, Kreidler said, about a third of recipients were unable to donate. Now, the number is up to about 44 percent and growing, as rising housing

costs squeeze seniors and the disabled. High-volume kitchen needed With the caseload growing, it’s more important than ever that TLC have a kitchen that can handle high volume cooking, Kreidler said. “We can’t just use any old restaurant kitchen,” Kreidler said. “It will take a ton of time to find the right place, and in the meantime, we’ve got to keep the program going.” Since getting the news in December, TLC has been exploring their options,

Kreidler said: they’d like to partner with another nonprofit agency, but currently none of the groups in the area have a place to share. Littleton Public Schools may have a spare kitchen for them in a few years when a variety of construction projects across the district are finished, but that timeline isn’t set in stone, and it would be a pain to move to a new facility only to pick up and move again in a few years.

TAVR – A less invasive treatment for Aortic Stenosis SPONSORED CONTENT In one year, a person’s aortic valve opens and closes more than 30 million times, as the heart beats 60 times per minute. Dr. Lee MacDonald of South Denver Cardiology in Littleton, said the heart works hard and a 75-year-old whose aortic valve has opened and closed more than 2 billion times can sometimes run into an issue known as Aortic Stenosis (AS). “Think about it, this valve literally opens and closes to keep the heart pumping about 60 times a minute,” MacDonald said. “Aortic Stenosis can cause this valve to become stiff, causing someone to feel fatigued and have chest discomfort. In more severe cases, a patient might be passing out, or can die. AS is a very serious condition and the symptoms of it should not be ignored.” AS is one of the most common and most serious valve disease problems a person can have. Seen in older patients, MacDonald, an interventional cardiologist, said AS restricts the blood flow from the left ventricle to the aorta. Someone suffering from AS might be breathless, have chest pain, fainting spells, fatigue or a heart murmur.

MacDonald said there are no medications or medical therapies to treat AS, instead a patient has two options – have open heart surgery, or have a procedure known as TAVR, or Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement. MacDonald said he’s proud that South Denver Cardiology is able to offer patients the TAVR option, which is less invasive than open-heart surgery. MacDonald said at one time the only option to repair the aortic valve was through openheart surgery. This meant once

the chest was cut open, the heart was stopped while surgeons cut out the old valve and replaced with a new one. This procedure comes with a 5-day hospital stay and a lengthy recovery time to regain strength and energy. TAVR achieves the same objective in replacing the malfunctioning valve, but is a lot more efficient. MacDonald said the TAVR procedure repairs the valve without removing the old, damaged valve. Instead, a replacement is wedged into the aortic valve’s place. The procedure is done through a small incision

through the femoral artery in the groin or thigh. “There is no need to cut open the chest with TAVR,” MacDonald said. “There is not even anesthesia. A patient who has the TAVR procedure goes home with a band aid on the thigh. This procedure is extremely successful in older patients. This technology is a superior approach to treating something so serious.” MacDonald said South Denver Cardiology has been conducting the TAVR procedure for about 4 years. Coming upon the 4-year

anniversary for the very first patient to do the TAVR procedure at the center, MacDonald said it’s rewarding to see the patient’s progress. “When a patient needs the TAVR procedure, they are very sick,” MacDonald said. “It’s so exciting to see the quality of life improve and see them living such happy, fulfilling lives. We are not only saving the lives of these patients, but we are dramatically improving the quality of life for every patient.” MacDonald said South Denver Cardiology remains one of the leading centers in the state in providing innovative care and procedures to patients such as TAVR. “We use the newest valves and we are a comprehensive center with an experienced valve team,” MacDonald said. “I’m proud that our heart team takes these patients, arranges tests and procedures and truly manages the comprehensive, personalized care all of our patients need.” Learn more about South Denver Cardiology Associates and the South Denver Heart Center by visiting the website at https:// www.southdenver.com/.

Renting a facility might cut it, but that leaves the group susceptible to rent hikes or eviction. That leaves buying a facility of their own, Kreidler said. “The opportunity is huge,” Kreidler said. “If we could fundraise enough for our own place, our expenses would go up, but we could swing it.”

From left, TLC Meals on Wheels volunteers Debbie Peters, Staci Helwig and Jo Rhodes fill trays for the group’s hundreds of needy recipients. The nonprofit has to vacate the old Ames elementary school before the end of the year, and where they’ll go after that is a mystery. DAVID GILBERT

Time of the essence But the clock is ticking. LPS will begin tearing down Ames in sections beginning this summer, but will work around TLC’s kitchen as long as possible, said Diane Doney, the school district’s assistant superintendent. “At one point we thought we could build the new building off to the side while the old one was still standing,” Doney said. “But the architect said the best spot on the property is right

where the current building is. It’s a small site. It’s a shame.” Doney said the relationship between the district and TLC has been very positive. “We love them,” Doney said. “We liked them there. We tried our best to figure out something.” TLC bears no hard feelings toward LPS, Kreider said. “We’ve had a wonderful relationship with them,” Kreidler said. “They gave us a great deal. They provided maintenance and security. They even put in a new grease trap for us.” LPS charged TLC about a thousand dollars a month to rent the Ames kitchen, Doney said. If the stars don’t align in time, McClymonds said, TLC will have to find an interim space, and may have to switch to primarily frozen meals until a new location can be found. “I don’t want to go there,” McClymonds said. “We’ll be here. We’re a community-based program, and now we need the community’s support to figure this out and carry on.”

ABOUT THE PROGRAM TLC Meals on Wheels covers a 95-square-mile area, bounded roughly by I-25 on the east, C-470 on the south and west, and Hampden Avenue on the north, with some leeway north to Evans Avenue. Anyone over age 60 can automatically qualify for visits from TLC. People under 60 are considered on a case-by-case basis. Clients with the means are invited to pay

up to the full cost of a meal, which is $4. Nobody is turned away for inability to pay, however, and nearly half of TLC’s clients pay nothing at all.

Police scanner access fading as agencies cite safety Some departments embrace encryption, drawing scrutiny from media experts BY JESSICA GIBBS JGIBBS@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Deputy Corie Chance sped in his vehicle to the scene of a shooting that would leave fellow Deputy Zackari Parrish dead and six other people injured. Chance’s radio told him a gunman shot multiple officers the morning of Dec. 31, 2017. When he arrived on scene, word spread that an injured, unresponsive Parrish remained trapped in the gunman’s apartment, along with Parrish’s radio, feeding the suspect a stream of information. An order went out to switch from the main radio channel to an encrypted one, but the new channel was buried under more than 15 options. Chance fumbled through channels as bullets zinged around him, searching for the right one. The experience in Highlands Ranch is why Chance is glad the Douglas County Sheriff ’s Office has since encrypted — or blocked from the public — some of its main radio channels, and he hopes they encrypt all in the future. But Jeffrey Roberts, who worked at

olorado Community Media is joining news organizations across the nation March 10-16 in marking Sunshine Week. This week is a reminder of the importance of open government and the vital need for access to public information. Find more at sunshineweek.org

The Denver Post as an editor and reporter for 23 years, is one of many raising concerns about the recent trend of Colorado law enforcement agencies encrypting their airwaves. Roberts is now executive director of the Colorado Freedom of Information Coalition, a nonprofit group that advocates for freedom of the press and open records. Members of the public and media frequently listen to scanners or apps to follow radio chatter. It helps them gauge whether the government is serving the governed, Roberts said, or informs neighborhood watch programs. Many journalists rely on scanners to know when and where breaking news

occurs. Scanners inform their line of questioning, give them leads and so on. Encrypted radios leave them at the mercy of law enforcement agencies, Roberts said. “You really need this information, otherwise you’re just relying solely on the agency to let you know, and on their schedule, and in their fashion, and perhaps with their take on things,” he said. Al Tompkins, the St. Petersburg, Florida-based Poynter Institute’s senior faculty and group leader for broadcast media, said encrypting radio channels is a national trend that began more than 20 years ago. While it is “easy to understand why police want to have private radio transmissions,” encrypting can present a host of problems for the news media, said Tompkins, whose institute is a nonprofit school for journalism that is a nationally renowned resource on media issues. Some members of the law enforcement community say encryption is crucial for protecting private information and first responders’ safety. Those opposed say it diminishes transparency and hinders the work of journalists. To encrypt or not to encrypt? The tragedy in Highlands Ranch spurred a policy shift at the Douglas County Sheriff ’s Office, which six months ago completed the encryption of two of its four main channels. It has roughly 20 in total. Prior to then

its SWAT channels were encrypted. The Columbia Journalism Review reported in January that more than two dozen Colorado agencies fully encrypt their radios. The Douglas County Sheriff ’s Office is still deciding if it will join those agencies. That remains a possibility, said Undersheriff Holly Nicholson-Kluth, although she did not know if or when a decision would be made. The Denver Police Department is poised to block its radio traffic this spring. The agency’s suburban counterparts range in their level of encryption. In 2017, the Thornton Police Department switched from public to encrypted radio signals. The Arvada department has fully encrypted for roughly three years. Littleton’s police department is researching encrypting one of its special operations channels. The Castle Rock department began encrypting certain channels five years ago. Its main channels are public and encrypted lines are used on a case-bycase basis. The Arapahoe County Sheriff ’s Office encrypts two of its channels, one for SWAT and one for investigations, a spokeswoman said. Other forces, including the Englewood Police Department, the Northglenn department and the Adams County Sheriff ’s Office, do not encrypt. SEE ACCESS, P10

Eliminate High-Interest Debt or Do Home Improvements with a Cash Out Refinance SPONSORED CONTENT - KATHY MUNI / SPECIAL TO COLORADO COMMUNITY MEDIA Our debt had been growing over the years as we financed three weddings and put multiple children through college. Being able to refinance our home and pay off the high-interest credit cards was a blessing. It not only simplified our financial lives, it saved us money! ~ KC Many homeowners are in a similar situation. When they become aware of the high interest rates they are paying on personal debt such as car loans, credit cards, and student loans the interest rates can be much greater than doing a refiKathy Muni nance of their home mortgage. The average interest rate for credit card debt at the end of 2018 was 16.71 percent while the average 30-year mortgage rate was 4.3 percent. The average American household carries about $16,000 in credit card debt, approaching $30,000 in car loans, and many 10’s of thousands of dollars in student loans. The savings in interest can be significant. The difference between the credit card debt (16.71 percent) and the average mortgage rate in the 4 percent is over 12 percent in savings. Doing a cash-out refi can help solve this problem of overwhelming debt. A refinance allows you to tap into the equity tied up in your home putting it to work for you.

When you refinance and access some of your money, you may use it for any purpose. Many pay off debt, which means optimizing their finances. Others want to do upgrades to their home, take a vacation, buy an investment property or pay for a wedding. The choice is yours! Some of our clients save $100s and even $1,000s per month restructuring their debt by refinancing. If you are concerned that your mortgage will start over at 30-years, we have programs that offer flex terms, so you can keep your current term. We can do just about any term between 10-30 years. If you want 23, 18 or 12 years, we can do it. If you currently have mortgage insurance, you may be able to eliminate that portion of your payment if your value has increased enough in the past few years. Refinancing is an easy process and can have the added benefit of boosting your credit score when all is said and done. If your cards are maxed out or are higher than the recommended 30 percent usage, paying them off with proceeds from a refinance can help your credit score. Also, if you have an FHA loan, refinancing has never been faster or easier with an FHA Streamline. You can lower your monthly mortgage payments - in some instances, even if you owe more than your home is worth. No appraisal is required, rates are low, and there is no income documentation required (W-2s and pay stubs). The benefit to you must be at least a 5 percent drop in your mortgage payment, and there are 15,

20, 25, and 30-year terms available, with Primary Residence and Non-owner Occupied properties allowed. An FHA Streamline can lower your monthly mortgage payment as well as your interest rate. If you have not refinanced since HUD lowered the MIP in 2015, now is the time! You may also be able to refinance out of an FHA loan, if you qualify for a Conventional loan eliminating the mortgage insurance, assuming your home value has increased enough. The VA has a streamline process to lower your rate. You can also take advantage of this rising real estate market using a VA cash out refinance with a loan up to 100% of the

current value. Interest rates are still at historical lows, but may be set to rise soon. Silver Leaf Mortgage is a broker, which means that we can seek out the very best options for you offered by a variety of lenders whether you are self-employed, or W2. Our loan officers have years of experience and will work closely with you to be sure that the refinance loan you select will best meet your needs.

‘He was real, he was wonderful and he was ours’ Memorial service for firefighter Cody Mooney, 31, filled with love from family, peers and first responders BY ELLIS ARNOLD EARNOLD@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

The firefighter was humble, but his influence will ring out far beyond his time on Earth. That’s the picture family, friends and colleagues painted of Cody Mooney, 31, a firefighter in the south metro Denver area who died March 2 after fighting an aggressive brain tumor. “Cody was not larger than life,” said his wife, Emily Mooney, at the March 8 memorial service at Mission Hills Church in Littleton. “He was real, he was wonderful and he was ours.” More than 200 people — many dozens among them fire responders and law enforcement — gathered to hear stories of Mooney, remembered as a devoted husband and father, a caring brother and a man of ever-present faith. He had worked at South Metro Fire Rescue, Littleton Fire Rescue and the Cunningham Fire Protection District. Besides his wife of 10 years, Mooney also is survived by their four children and another expected baby, who is due soon. His brothers and father, Kevin Mooney, heaped praise on the fire responder community, thanking them for supporting them in their time of grief. To “the men and women of the South Metro fire department, I will show up differently for my friends and my family and my community because of you,” Kevin Mooney said. “You changed me because Cody changed you.” Personnel from South Metro Fire Rescue and West Metro Fire Rescue, as well as fire departments from Aurora, Thornton and Golden — and even a firefighter from Los Angeles County in California — came to pay respects. Mooney was a dedicated firefighter who “wore his emotions on the outside,” said firefighter Dave Petau, who trained Mooney as an instructor. He was “the first one there in the morning, running stairs,” Petau said. “He was a true mentor to many of his peers.” Petau recalled a night when Mooney performed CPR on a man who was in cardiac arrest, who, along with the man’s wife, attended the memorial service. “While it was a team effort that night, I have no doubt in my mind he wouldn’t be alive if Cody weren’t there,” Petau said. Petau would rib students, including Mooney, telling them they were “meeting the minimum standards” regardless of their performance. “Cody, when it came to being a husband, a father, a friend, a firefighter and everything else, you greatly exceeded the minimum standards,”

Stacia Martin, 46, and her son, Shaun Martin, 26, hold an American flag and a sign that reads, “Sorry for your loss,” on Lucent Boulevard in Highlands Ranch March 8 as a procession of fire response and police vehicles drives to Mission Hills Church in Littleton, bringing with it Cody Mooney, 31, who died after complications related to a tumor. “I always come out for firefighter and police funerals because it’s important to honor them,” Stacia Martin said. PHOTOS BY ELLIS ARNOLD

TO HELP THE MOONEY FAMILY Cody Mooney’s family faces thousands of dollars in medical costs, and you can help ease the load. There is a chance that the family’s expected baby, like two of her siblings, will be born with a genetic disorder requiring surgeries and other medical procedures soon after birth, and the family’s youngest daughter will be going in for her next surgery in spring, according to a GoFundMe page. To help support the family’s costs with donations, go to www.gofundme.com/firefighter-fighting-brain-tumor-cody-mooney. Petau said, his voice breaking. “We’ve got it from here.” Away from his public service, Mooney was a fierce friend. His brother, Chris Mooney, is older, but said Cody Mooney felt like the big brother. “I’d be … down and out, and he’d take me into his home and give me anything he had,” Chris Mooney said. Cody Mooney was a “sage,” but didn’t know it, Chris Mooney said. His brother had a philosophy: He’d push for “just five more.” That could mean five more minutes playing with his kids, five more miles on a hike when the going got tough or just five more breaths when a person feels like giving up, Chris Mooney said.

A photo of Cody Mooney and his firefighting helmet and gear sit on the stage at Mission Hills Church in Littleton March 8, where a memorial service was held for Mooney. For someone who needed a shoulder to lean on, Cody Mooney would think to stay for five more minutes but end up talking for two more hours, his brother said. And that spirit of “serving and saving,” speakers said, came from his faith, deeply ingrained in him. Emily Mooney read words from

his journal, where he wrote that the purpose of his life is “to glorify God by enjoying him. God wants things for us, not from us.” After calling Cody her “favorite place,” she quoted him again: “I hope they remember me as a man that was devoted to the things in my life — God, family, friends and fun.”

Pronounced “pokey,” the Hawaiian dish centered on raw fish and rice now has a home in Littleton, at PokeCo, a hip lunch spot at Broadway and Mineral Avenue. If you like sushi, you’ll love poke, said manager and head chef Nick Seberg. “In Hawaii, poke is mainly just fish on rice,” said Seberg, who was born and raised in Oahu before heading to Los Angeles for culinary school. “Here in Colorado, chefs are getting more creative with it.” For $12 to $14, you can build yourself a poke bowl from fresh ingredients like salmon, shrimp, ginger, avocado or seaweed salad, prepared behind a long counter of ingredients. It’s like Chipotle or Subway, Seberg said, “but a lot fresher and tastier.” Poke’s great for lunch breaks, said owner Jeane Yang, who also owns

Here, you can get something healthy and deli-

cious, but a lot faster.” PokeCo’s fish comes from the same high-end supplier as East Moon, Yang said. Poke has long been a staple of the Aloha State, but only recently hopped to the mainland, Seberg said. “I’d say it showed up in LA about

seven years ago,” Seberg said. “Now there’s a hundred poke places in Cali. Here in Denver, it’s growing like crazy right now.” PokeCo offers what might be another Littleton first: rolled Thai ice cream. For $7, you can get maybe the prettiest ice cream sundae you’ve ever seen, made with cold cream smeared flat across an icy pan and rolled into tight curls. “People love watching it get made,” Seberg said. “Kids in particular get a kick out of it.” PokeCo is a welcome addition to the Mineral and Broadway area, said Eric Greenfield, who stopped by for lunch on March 5 — for the third time since the shop opened just four days before. “Normally on my lunch break I just get fast food or something from the grocery store, but this is way better,” Greenfield said, munching on a bowl with ahi tuna, salmon, cucumbers and jalapeno. “It’s really nice to get something actually fresh.”

Getting a birder’s eye view Carson Nature Center birdwatching group on the prowl BY DAVID GILBERT DGILBERT@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

To die-hards of Carson Nature Center’s First Wednesday birding group, the water features along the links of the Littleton Golf Club at Federal Boulevard and Bowles Avenue couldn’t be more thrilling. “So far we’ve spotted a bufflehead, a goldeneye and a northern shoveler,” said Ellen Chilikas, peering through binoculars at the colorful ducks splashing in the pond. On the first Wednesday of every month, South Platte Park interpreter Victoria Sutton leads a flock of enthusiastic birders in search of some of the dozens of bird species that visit Littleton. “It’s easy, it’s social, and it’s pretty fascinating,” Sutton said. “Birdwatching can be a little intimidating, and we wanted to eliminate that. Even if you don’t know anything about birds, you’ll have a good time.” The group makes a great excuse to get outside in the winter, Chilikas said. “Lots of people don’t want to ski, so

killed in committee during the 2018 legislative session. It would have prohibited other agencies from following suit, allowing them to encrypt only in certain circumstances, such as tactical or investigative situations. Van Winkle did not respond to a request for comment for this article, and it was not known if a similar bill would be introduced this legislative session, which ends in May.

FROM PAGE 6

In Douglas County, Nicholson-Kluth said the sheriff ’s office encrypted some channels for two key reasons. The first was illustrated through the Highlands Ranch shooting, she said. The sheriff ’s office wanted deputies to easily and quickly find a secure channel when responding to serious incidents and to prevent suspects from tracking them through public channels. “They don’t want the bad guys listening in,” Tompkins said. But he questioned how often agencies could prove criminals use public radio channels to spy on law enforcement. Douglas County’s second reason was to protect personal information that’s sometimes shared on the radio. If people were to make a public records request, Nicholson-Kluth said, it’s the type of information that would be redacted under open-records laws. Thornton police officer Matt Barnes, a department spokesman, said transmissions on public safety radio systems are “much more prevalent today and are increasingly used to” share information on law enforcement and private citizens. It contributed to the department’s choice to encrypt, he said via email. The Arvada Police Department switched after it experienced suspects tracking officers through radio scanners, said its spokesman, Detective David Snelling. Snelling described

The Douglas County Sheriff’s office encrypted two of its four main radio channels approximately six months ago, which it hopes will make it easier for deputies using radios like this one to find secure lines during serious incidents. COURTESY PHOTO

how in several instances, officers approaching a residence heard their transmissions from nearby smartphone apps or scanners seconds after they made them. “You can imagine how unnerving that is,” he said, “when you can hear your own voice coming from inside the house.” Snelling said the department switched over during an equipment update in 2015. It replaced or upgraded radio towers, installed in-car equipment, plus more, and because they had the ability to encrypt along the way, they did. There was no additional cost for the encryption, he said. A bill introduced by state Rep. Kevin Van Winkle, R-Highlands Ranch, was

Access for some The Douglas County Sheriff ’s Office may be willing to provide media outlets with access to encrypted channels. Their concern is not with journalists listening in, NicholsonKluth said. In what form and at what cost remains undecided, but it could be through a link to an online streaming service. Tompkins said that level of access is not uncommon in some media markets, where police supplied unencrypted scanners to newsrooms. Still, he cautioned it’s “an uncomfortable answer” to the dilemma. Law enforcement can become angry with the media and take scanners away, or “just as bad,” news departments are cognizant of that possibility and avoid being too critical of police. Snelling insists media needn’t worry about retaliation from his agency. “Absolutely not. I think (transparency) is engrained in our culture at the Arvada Police Department,” he said. “I think we do have a pretty open and transparent department without having our radios open, and we’re willing to answer or respond to any inquiries at any time.” The Denver Post reported the Den-

ver Police Department, which plans to encrypt possibly as soon as April, will require media outlets to sign a memorandum of understanding to access their radio communications. Roberts said he — as a member of the Colorado Freedom of Information Coalition, the Colorado Press Association and the Colorado Broadcasters Association — met with Denver Police Chief Paul Pazen and other department heads three or four times prior to the decision, at the department’s invitation. They discussed alternatives to encryption, he said. In the end, the department agreed to provide news organizations scanners at a lower-thanretail price if they signed the MOU. The language of those agreements is not yet available. “There’s not a lot of recourse that the news media has other than to make the argument that they need these tools to properly inform the public,” Roberts said. The Arvada Police Department says it will not provide anyone access to its encrypted channels. Not its towing company. Not the media. “We don’t give communication devices out to any other entity,” Snelling said. Tompkins said even if agencies encrypt radios, their communications should be recorded, and those recordings should be open to public records requests. “The only upside may be that all of this forces news departments to develop real sources in police departments,” Tompkins said, rather than being “reliant on the sensational stuff that flows from scanners.”

Battling at backgammon — that’s just how we roll QUIET DESPERATION

Craig Marshall Smith

I

t is one man against one woman, without handicap or charity or concession. There is strategy and there is luck. There is grit and there is determination. Words are said in the heat of competition that alarm the dachshund. It is backgammon. It is one of the oldest board games in the world, going back 5,000 years. It is face-to-face fun with a friend, a stranger, or a loved one. Or even a computer. Like

chess, backgammon has been researched by computer scientists. You can play backgammon against a robot. Our set-up is a neat leather case that opens to reveal 24 triangles (points). Each player has 15 pieces (checkers) that resemble afterdinner candies, in two colors. Ours are chocolate and caramel. The pieces are moved according to the roll of two dice. We got the board out in October, and have played 133 games since. The lead has gone back and forth.

Understanding the simple truth of success

hy do we struggle with achieving success when there really is no secret to success? Is it because we have overcomplicated the thought or definition of success? Or is it because we really just WINNING don’t know what WORDS success truly means to us? So here is the simple and uncomplicated truth of success: it’s you. Plain and simple, you are the secret to your own success. Certainly there Michael Norton are others who have helped us along the way. We may have read some awesome books with incredible insights that have illuminated the path and provided direction. Many of us have attended motivational or instructional seminars and training sessions that have inspired us and given us more to think about when it comes to success. And many of us have even hired our own personal coach or business adviser to help us achieve the successes that we seek. People, books, seminars, training, coaches and other forms of instruction and encouragement are contributing factors to our success. However, at the end of the day the

person who must execute against the strategy and the plan is you. There have been people in your life that have proven themselves to be a difference maker in helping you become who you are today. The key word in there is “helping,” but it’s you who is the real difference maker when it comes to the achievement of success and the realization of your goals and dreams. This is awesome news. This is wonderful news. This is incredible news. Wouldn’t you agree? I mean you are the one who is ultimately in control of your own destiny. For some of you this is empowering and inspiring. For others, it could be terrifying. For some of you this could be powerfully liberating and just the push you needed. For others, Dr. Denis Waitley’s philosophy of, “If it’s to be, it’s up to me,” can quickly go from feeling motivation to rationalizing excuses. And if that excuse alarm starts to sound, just remember Dr. Waitley’s quote, “If it’s to be, it’s up to me,” and stop those excuses as quickly as possible. You know what the excuses sound like don’t you? “I am too busy.” “I don’t have time for this.” “This is too hard.” “I am only doing this for someone else.” “I just have to wait until I finish this other project.” “I will start after the next holiday.”

“I don’t have the skills.” “I can’t do this by myself.” And so many others. The list of excuses is long, but the belief in yourself could be endless. The simple truth of success and to success is you. , I am a huge advocate of personal and professional development programs, I am a firm believer in the rpower of friends and advisors who provide insights and encouragement. I completely and absolutely support the idea of having coaches and mentors. I am a veracious reader, and someone who constantly listens to audio programs as I pursue my own continuous improvement. But even

with all of these awesome people and tools available to me, ultimately it is up to me to make the decision to apply what I have heard or read. I am the own who has to execute in order to succeed. So how about you? Do you see yourself as your own secret to success? Or do you need a little reminder that you are the one in control of your own success? As always I would love to hear your story of success at gotonorton@gmail.com and when we can stop making excuses and start owning our own success, it really will be a better than good week.

I have had the game since the late 1970s, and played a lot of backgammon through the 1980s. But the case has been in the basement for decades, until midOctober when I asked, “Do you know how to play?” She said, “Yes.” However, she had a few phony Ohio rules that had to go, but only after I obtained notarized exclusions from the International Association. Jennifer is a stickler. We both have had winning streaks, and I always attribute mine to karma, and specifically to a life of kindness and generosity. I attribute hers to luck. Nothing more. When the weather is better, we play bocce on a high school lawn, with Harry staked nearby and

watching intently. I am better at bocce than she is. Trounces are not unusual. Winning is fun, but it’s expected. When I got out the backgammon case, I thought there would be more of the same. I soon found out otherwise. Having a very worthy opponent makes a win even more satisfying. Having a very worthy opponent whom I love to be around makes it even better. If this kindles or rekindles an interest, and you haven’t an opponent, you can find one online at cardgames.io. His name is Bill, and he plays by the book. He isn’t very pretty, and I can’t distract him. I prefer a flesh and blood opponent, and hearing her pathetic bleats of exasperation when I roll boxcars.

But this is contingent on Congress passing a longterm legislative solution protecting me. The DACA program was rescinded in September 2017, and the president called on Congress to act. However, Dreamers like myself have been stuck in legal limbo, living court case to court case since then. I am thankful I was able to meet with our representatives this week to show them just how crucial Dreamers are to Colorado and how much we want to contribute to Colorado communities and the economy.

LIFE Making time for

Basketball fans and non-fans alike come together for one of the biggest sporting events of the year

BY NICK PUCKETT NPUCKETT@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

oug Pruitt’s glass of a dark micobrew, sweating as it rested on a coaster at the Library Co., a bar in Castle Rock, was still half full. Arms crossed, eyes gazing upward at one of the four TVs behind the bar, Pruitt intently watched a college basketball game between Kansas and Oklahoma. He had no rooting interest. He was studying, more or less. And looking for a distraction. “I better get used to this,” Pruitt said, as he smiled and took another sip of beer. Pruitt is not a big basketball fan. But he fills out a bracket every March and will follow the games for the satisfaction of earning bragging rights over his brother. This year, Pruitt said, he won’t hardly be away from the TV. On March 20, one day before the tip-off of the first round of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament, Pruitt is scheduled to get a vasectomy. He and his wife, Tasha, talked about it for months. Pruitt decided if he was going to couchridden for the better part of a week, he might as well do it while there’s something worth watching. “I honestly would probably be watching these games if I was sitting at work,” he said. “At least this way I don’t feel bad about it.” During the first two days of the first round of March Madness on March 21 and 22, Pruitt plans to watch as many games as possible. The 2019 broadcasting schedule has yet to be released, but last year, games ran nonstop on four different stations — CBS, TNT, TBS and TruTV — from 10 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. Pruitt isn’t alone in his dedication to watching the games. In workplaces across the country, one of the most noticeable divots in worker productivity comes during the two-week stretch in March. Distractions at work Low worker productivity during the tournament two years ago contributed to about $6.3 billion in corporate losses nationwide, according to a 2018 report from WalletHub.com, a personal finance website, Darrin Duber-Smith, a sports marketing expert at Metropolitan State University of Denver, said the massive draw to the tournament can be attributed to a number of factors. For the most part,

he said, it comes down to fans’ affinity for the sport and how they identify with universities playing in the tournament. “Every school has a basketball program. They might not have football or lacrosse, but basketball is something that is ubiquitous,” Duber-Smith said. “It’s a culturally significant event. It happens every year and at the same time every year, and if you’re not into it, you’re going to be touched by it in some way.” Between the men’s and women’s Division I tournaments and tournaments at other levels of competition, there will be hundreds of games played during March Madness. “You have something for literally everybody,” Duber-Smith said. Peter Craig, of Parker, a University of Kansas alumnus, said during March Madness he wears two hats: one as a raving Jayhawks fan, hoping his alma mater wins it all every year, and one as a fan of the bracket. “It’s close, but I’d say my team is bigger than my bracket,” Craig said. “Every year, I always hope for a perfect bracket — everyone does — but in the end it’s just exciting to have that possibility. That’s why we love to watch sports anyway.”

ollowing the 2016 election and the first use of “alternate facts” by a representative of the federal government, George Orwell’s “1984” took the top spot on Amazon’s best-seller list, nearly 70 years after it was published. It’s not difficult to understand why the story renewed its hold on readers — too powerful governments, technology with the ability to become an insidious presence in daily life, and a rise in fearmongering all seems COMING out of OrATTRACTIONS straight well’s imagination. “It’s really easy to turn this story into something out of our current news cycle,” said Neil Truglio, director of the Benchmark Theatre’s production of ‘1984.’ “But I wanted to respect world that Clarke Reader Orwell and playwrights (Robert) Icke and (Duncan) Macmillan created, and audience will fill in the blanks themselves. The regional premiere of “1984” runs at Benchmark, 1560 Teller St. in Lakewood, from March 15 through April 13. Performances are at 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday evenings and 6 p.m. on Sunday. Additional performances on Thursday March 21 and 28 and April 4 and 11. Set in a dystopian future, the show follows aspiring diarist Winston (Sean Scrutchins) as he attempts to make a life for himself under the totalitarian rule of the Party. Cast-wise, the show is the biggest the company has tackled yet and bringing the characters and oppressive technology to life creates an immersive and difficult experience for audiences. “Seeing this show in a bigger theater gives audiences a reason to be removed from what’s happening, especially if they’re sitting far enough back,” Truglio said. “As a director, I want to lean into the intimate space of Benchmark and bring the audience in.” A lot happens in the play’s relatively short 95-minute run time, and audiences should prepare themselves for a production that is both challenging and thought-provoking. “This is not a casual theatre going experience. It asks you to engage and be willing to go there with characters,” Truglio said. “Benchmark’s whole mission to keep the conversation going. And a play like “1984” will spark conversations.”

The Cooper Mountain camp, one of the only ones in the state to have actual snow, provides campers with top-notch instruction and fun for all skill levels. “Fortunately, our altitude allows us to offer this unique summer camp for kids,” said Taylor Prather, the public relations manager for Copper Mountain Resorts. “This camp is a great opporutnity for those kids that live and breathe snowboarding and skiing. And, we go well beyond the snow sports. We offer the great summer programs that includes skate boarding, cheerleading and a lot of programs that really cover all interest areas.” With more than 1,000 campers a year, Prather said the 2019 camp is shaping up to be one of the best on record. Running between June and August for children from age 7 and up, there are plenty of professionals on tap to join the camp’s top-notch coaches. Some of those celebrities include: • Professinal snowboard Taylor Bingaman on June 2. • Olympian Chris Corning will be

at the resort on June 9 through June 15. Corning has a bronze medal in snowboarding. Prather said Corning is special to the program given he was once a camper himself. • Professional skateboard David Reyes will be at the resort starting June 16. • Professional skier Lupe Hagearty is slated to join week 7 of the camp on July 14 The 2019 Summer Camp lineup continues between June and August, teaching children age 7 and up a variety of skills, including skateboarding, BMX, scooter, ski and snowboard. The weeklong, overnight camps are intended to set goals, fine tune skills and meet new people. Known for its indoor and outdoor training facilities, Woodward Copper’s high-alpine location allows for year-round skiing and snowboarding on real Colorado snow. Campers will learn from certified coaches and have exclusive access to The Barn, skate parks, bike parks and Pipeline Park, a massive summer snow terrain park featuring a triple jump line, endless boxes and rail features.

5 things (BPT) - Looking for a cure for the winter blues? Start making plans for the summer. Having something fun to look forward to - such as days off and family trips - can make those dreary days more bearable. One thing you’ll want to add to your summer planning list is finding a great summer camp or two for your kids. Even before leaves start appearing on the trees, many organizations begin announcing dates and enrollment for summer camp sessions. Get a jump start on the process with this guide to choosing an enriching summer activity, where your child will also have a blast. First, know the best places to look: You may not be aware of the number of great summer day camps taking place around your community. Start with college campuses, parks and recreation departments, local school districts and churches. Be sure to tune in to nonprofits, like performing arts centers, museums and your local animal shelter or zoo. Finally, ask the other adults in your child’s life for the inside scoop. The art teacher, soccer coach and scout leader may be in the know about the best camps in town. Look for the immersive experience: When you think about it, “camp” is an odd word choice. But look at what sleep-away camp means to kids, and it makes sense. Yes, it’s fun to sleep in a cabin and spend all day sailing, swimming and climbing. What’s key is that these kids are immersed in a new reality that’s different from the usual home

parents should know before choosing a summer camp

and school routines. So when a local organization bills an activity a “camp,” they promise an experience that lets your kid jump in and become a part of something. When choosing the right camp, look for that quality. Is there a clear theme or topic? Will kids be active and involved? Or is the “camp” just made up of a series of talks led by adults? Make sure your child is on board: Consider your child’s interests and how camp can make them stronger. Your play-acting child with a flair for drama will probably thrive and bloom at theater camp. However, if camp is a strategy to help them improve at something they struggle with, make sure the program is designed for these kids, or you’re setting them up for a session of misery. After all, you wouldn’t send your sportsloathing child to, say, a high-intensity wrestling camp to make them more athletic. Don’t forget the fun factor: What makes camp truly memorable is having fun, so make sure the camp you’re looking at takes fun seriously. For example, Blake Furlow, CEO of Bricks 4 Kidz, says kids keep coming back to their camps partly because these sessions bring building with LEGO Bricks to the next level of fun and exciting. But watching their enjoyment unfold during the camp is also massively rewarding. “See-

ing the kids light up, get excited and make new connections during a Bricks 4 Kidz class is a heart-warming experience,” Furlow says. Consider longevity: When looking at various programs, a good question to ask is how long the camp has been around. New summer camp themes and programs can sound exciting and fresh, but it takes a few rounds to work out the kinks with any new organization. Choosing wellestablished programs with experienced leaders is one way to ensure that your child will get that worthwhile and fun experience with a new activity. If you’re looking for a camp experience from a trusted provider that fosters learning in STEM subjects, look for a Bricks 4 Kidz franchise in your community. Bricks 4 Kidz is celebrating its 10th anniversary of providing fun and enrichment for kids in schools and communities across the United States and beyond! At these camps, kids get to use LEGO Bricks along with specialized LEGO Technic pieces like gears, axles and electric motors to build unique and exciting models to help kids explore engineering and architecture - while having a blast doing it.

More than 97 million people tuned in to watch the 2018 NCAA Tournament from the First Four to the Final Four rounds, according to NCAA.com. The American Gaming Association, a casino gaming interest group, estimated more than 40 million people participated and filled out a total of 70 million brackets in 2018. The madness that surrounds March reaches beyond the actual games. There’s the game within the game — bracket pools and gambling — and the upsets. Duber-Smith called it a “gambling orgy.” But also, Duber-Smith said, the underdog mentality is something the casual fan can relate to, while the more invested fan will watch either supporting their bracket or their alma mater. “Casual fans come in because it’s the idea of America loves an underdog, and there’s always lots of underdogs in the tournament,” Duber-Smith said.

ALL ABOUT TIMING Dog Pruitt, of Castle Rock, isn’t unique in the planning of his elected surgery. Urologists performed 30 percent more vasectomies during the first week of the NCAA Tournament than they had during an average week, according to a 2017 study from Athena Health. This year, Colorado Urology Associates will be awarding a free vasectomy to one man “I don’t think there’s anything more American than that.” The underdog mentality While usually not rooting for the underdog, Craig said he would be lying if he said he wasn’t excited by the upsets March Madness brings. “The best part is we never know where the madness will come from,” he said. Last year, the No. 16-seed University of Maryland-Baltimore County beat top-seeded University of Virginia as the first No. 16 seed to do so. Everyone was a UMBC fan after that, Craig said. Dr. Travis Heath is a clinical psycholauthors and poets will be on hand to participate in panel discussions and signings. There will be also artists booths, musical performances, trivia games, a pop-up Tattered Cover store and a children’s area.

SPORTS

At 92, he’s not about to slow his row

D

ean Smith has won another national and world championship. No, I’m obviously not referring to the late legendary former North Carolina basketball coach who captured two NCAA titles with the Tar Heels, one gold medal as a coach with the U.S. Olympic team and one national crown as a player at Kansas. The Dean Smith I am citing lives in Lone Tree with his wife, Priscilla, who on Feb. 24 won the national and world indoor rowing championships for his age group. Smith will be 93 years old in June. Priscilla says when the couple would to go out for dinner in the southeast — when the basketball coach was still alive — they would always get the best table. Then she would have to admit that her husband was not that Dean Smith. But the Dean Smith from Lone Tree doesn’t take a back seat with his accomplishments. He has a sizeable wall display with ribbons, gold medals, hammer awards and a large picture that exposes him as a world-class track, cycling and rowing athlete. And the ribbons and medals were just the ones he has won since he turned 80. Smith, who went to high school in Canton, Illinois, and to college at Brad-

ley University, also in Illinois, was inducted into the Bradley Hall of Fame where he set a school record of 4:23.3 for the mile run. “I was in high school and not good enough to play basketball,” said Smith. “Running I could do, Jim Benton so I started running. Coach said, ‘I want you on the team.’ I did cycling through the ages. My knees gave out when I was about 73. The doctor told me if I kept running I was going to have to have them replaced. I liked the original ones. “So I was looking for something else and this buddy of mine found this rowing machine. I tried it and it didn’t bother my knees, so I said, ‘This is it.’ I could really compete and get serious about it.” Two months after he started indoor rowing, he won a championship in Boston. Between 1974-1990, he won eight U.S. age group 880-meter championships and four Master’s World championships. He set a world record with a time of 2:03.5 in the 800 meters at the age of 53 in Hanover, Germany.

OVERTIME

He has one U.S. Masters cycling gold medal, nine U.S. and international titles in rowing on the water and 20 U.S. and world championships between 2003 and 2019 in indoor rowing. For anybody puzzled by indoor rowing, it is done on rowing machines like those that can be found in most health clubs. Rowing machines simulate actions of watercraft rowing. And indoor rowing has become a sport of its own. In his recent wins of national and world titles in Long Beach, California, on Feb. 24, he was timed in 9:43.7 for 2,000 meters. “I love the competition,” said Smith. “If there is somebody out there I like to get ahead of them. Indoor rowing can be very competitive and you are on a machine that can be very accurate in measurement. So the measurements you are judged by are very accurate. There are techniques you need to learn for rowing. ... If you are good on the water, you are probably good on a rowing machine.”

played. Several area teams were among those ranked and should be watched this spring. Mountain Vista, which defeated Heritage to win the 5A baseball title last season, is top-ranked in the 5A baseball poll. Heritage is second, Cherry Creek third, Mountain Range sixth, Rock Canyon eighth, and last year’s 4A state champ Valor Christian is ninth. In the 3A baseball ratings, Faith Christian was second and Lutheran third. Defending state champion Grandview headed the 5A girls soccer poll, which had last year’s semifinalists Mountain Vista and Rock Canyon ranked third and fourth, respectively. Cherry Creek was eighth and Arapahoe 10th. Standley Lake was third in the 4A poll with Ponderosa fifth, D’Evelyn eighth and Green Mountain 10th. Defending state champion Jefferson Academy was top-ranked in 3A with Lutheran holding down the fifth spot.

The Bible Speaks Bernie Sanders recently opened his presidential bid with the words “We are laying the foundation to transform America”. Whether that happens remains to be seen as well as the consequences of it. But a day is coming when the entire world will be transformed, built on the “precious cornerstone” of Jesus Christ “for a sure foundation” (Is 28:16a). His Messianic earthly kingdom will last 1000 years with justice, righteousness, peace, personal longevity, economic prosperity & a beautiful environment as its consequence. Make sure you are there by faith in Jesus Christ for “the one who trusts will never be dismayed” (Is 28:16b). hfsmail@basicisp.net

How We Helped JoAnn Improve Her Freedom From Lingering Back Pain By Leading Physical Therapist, Dr. Brooke Olsen If you’ve been following this series, you’ve been told all about helpful tips and solutions to help ease your back pain. At times, the information can get overwhelming since we have access to many “self-help” options ranging from YouTube videos, Google, family, and friends. In today’s article, I’m going to help you gain clarity about all this information by sharing a story about JoAnn with you on how she was able to clear up her 2 year old back pain. Here’s JoAnn’s Story In A Nutshell: JoAnn came into the clinic after she had back pain slowly getting worse over time. She ended up going to see her doctor, had an XRAY, and was told it was arthritis. She was told there was nothing that could be done, she should rest & take some Tylenol. However, over the next several months, she became more and more worried about how the back pain was not easing up, so she started limiting how much she did in her life like walking around the park and being on her feet more,since she felt like she paid for it afterwards. JoAnn then decided to give us a call after seeing our article to see if anything could be done. After talking with JoAnn, assessing her back with a full head to toe exam, we came up with some key findings: 1 When she’s standing, she puts more weight in one leg than the other 2 Her left hip and thoracic spine didn’t have it’s full motion - very stiff. 3 JoAnn walks with an unequal step length - her right leg does not go as far as the left. She also has a hip that drops while walking too. 4 She has no signs of abnormal findings or neurological issues. 5 Her back pain wasn’t likely to back arthritis that was causing her pain. Here’s what a successful treatment looked like for JoAnn: 1 Specific hands-on treatment of her hip, back, and thoracic spine. 2 Hip and back exercises in and out of the clinic to improve her pain. 3 Movement changes and training to help return to things she loves pain-free once again. And the result? 8 weeks later, JoAnn is back to walking normal and without pain the full 3 miles around Washington Park. She took up yoga again and is planning a hike with her family in the summer once the weather improves. I hope this helps you understand what it looks like to truly ease back pain. I want to offer an opportunity for you to sit down with one of our specialized PT’s for free to talk about your back pain and what needs to be done to fix your pain - We call this our Free Discovery Visit.
