Apartment building gains approval Old plans updated with smaller units By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@coloradocommunitymedia.com A five-story apartment building approved seven years ago will finally move forward, though at a slightly higher density than planned before. Plans call for offering the units for sale. “Frankly, if we had proceeded in 2007, this project would probably have been owned by the bank,” said David Berton, a

principal at Rapport Holdings. His company owns the 0.7-acre property on Rapp Street, directly east of McDonald’s and just north of Arapahoe Community College. The site is currently three single-family lots, though the northernmost house burned to the ground last May, displacing the three young adults who shared the home. Littleton Fire Rescue determined the cause to be combustible bedding too close to a portable heater in a bedroom. Littleton’s planning board approved the new plan on April 28. It calls for 68 apartments, up from the original 52, plus five live/work units on the lower floor. Plans continues on Page 11

City set to get more stout 38 State Brewing Company hosts grand opening By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@coloradocommunitymedia.com 38 State Brewing Company is arriving at the end of a trail it blazed, and at the start of what its owners hope is a long and prosperous journey. “People ask if, looking back at all the work it took to do it, would we do it again,” said Kim Keating. “That would be a definite yes. And we’re rallying the other brewers that are opening up to just keep going.” Keating, her husband, Mike, friend JaPOSTAL ADDRESS

son Virzi and neighbor Brett Blazek got bit by the brewing bug five years ago, and decided three years ago to dive in head first by setting up shop in Littleton. Several manufacturers have expressed interest in the city, but 38 State was the first to actually get the barrel rolling. At the time, such companies were only allowed in industrial areas like the Santa Fe corridor, where Breckenridge Brewery will rise next year. The Old Mill brewery gets to be downtown because it has a full restaurant, so it’s classified as a brewpub. But after dealing with 38 State, city staff recommended last year that the law be changed to allow microbreweries, wine makers and microdistilleries in certain commercial areas like shopping centers and downtown. City council ultimately agreed, passing an ordinance that limits

their size and requires 30 percent of the building to be dedicated to retail sales and a tasting room. The action actually came too late to help 38 State, which will host its grand opening on May 10 in its new space, a former automotive shop south of the Office Depot at Broadway and County Line Road. The garage doors open up to tables and a bar, along with a jukebox, Pac-Man machine and Golden Tee. While they don’t have a kitchen, they will regularly invite food trucks and welcome deliveries and picnics. “We love our space, so we’re happy,” said Kim Keating. “But we paved the way for other places to not have to go through such a strict process.” Some might call it the perfect setting for a garage party, which the partners say is

After a bill cruised through the Senate, the House last week put the brakes on the measure, which sought to ban red-light cameras and photo radar systems in Colorado. The legislation officially met its demise during a House Appropriations Committee hearing on April 30, but the bill’s sponsor, House Speaker Mark Ferrandino, D-Denver, had pretty much accepted its defeat before it even got there. Senate Bill 14 would have prohibited local governments from using photo-radar technology to capture drivers who speed or run red lights. It was gutted by the House State, Veterans and Military Affairs Committee, which passed a stripped-down version of the bill on April 28. The gutted version only would have allowed for a state study of the technology’s public-safety effectiveness, something that Ferrandino didn’t think was necessary. “I think we have enough studies to show that it’s not effective,” Ferrandino told the Appropriations Committee. Ferrandino and other bill supporters argued that photo-radar technology is a cash cow used by local governments to rack up revenue, courtesy of lead-foot drivers. The House speaker also said the technology does little to prevent accidents. “They give a sense of public safety, but don’t actually increase public safety,” Ferrandino said. But several law-enforcement representatives testified otherwise during

Lawmakers: Moderates needed to further debate Every couple of years, the Legislature loses familiar faces, for better or for worse. Some have to leave because of term limits. But others decide on their own that government and politics just aren’t for them any more — giving us hope that politicians aren’t entirely crazy. It’s common for lawmakers who are leaving the Capitol to reflect on the past and look toward the future. But during recent conversations with three outgoing female lawmakers, I found it interesting how concerned they were over one thing in particular — the loss of moderate representation at the Capitol. “I think it’s very sad that three moderate women are opting out of a fourth term,” said Rep. Sue Schafer, D-Wheat Ridge. Schafer referenced herself and Republican Reps. Carole Murray of Castle Rock and Cheri Gerou of Evergreen as three lawmakers whose exits will leave a void at the General Assembly. The three women — who have served in the House for a combined 18 years — have been known to cast votes that blur party lines. For example, Schafer sometimes bucks her party on small business issues. “I don’t always vote with my caucus,” she said. “Sometimes we have bad bills and so do the others across the aisle.”

Murray was a co-sponsor of the Student Success Act, a major bipartisan education bill. And she shed tears and raised eyebrows when she voted for last year’s bill that created civil unions in Colorado — joining only a few Republicans to do so. Gerou also voted for the civil unions bill and has often crossed the aisle on legislation, which sometimes ruffles the feathers of those on the more conservative wing of the Republican Party. Both Gerou and Murray said they are concerned that their party is losing touch with moderate voters. That’s been a struggle for a party that has not fared well at the state or national level in recent years. Gerou did not hesitate when I asked whether she was concerned about the state of her party. “Oh, absolutely,” she said. “It’ll guarantee that we’re in the minority for a really long

hard time relating to the hard stance that we take on certain issues. “I’ve had many friends who feel like they don’t recognize the party and that gives me pause. Because, as a party, we can’t be pushing people away. We need to find out a way to bring people in.” Murray said that Republicans should do more to reach out to Hispanics, who are growing in population and in political strength. “If we don’t bring them in — and soon — we may never win again,” Murray said. Gerou feels the same way and hopes that the party gets back on track by focusing on economic issues and not social ones. But don’t expect Gerou to change parties any time soon. “I’m not going to become a Democrat; I just can’t,” Gerou said while laughing. “I couldn’t do that to my grandparents. It’s like when I was younger, I couldn’t live with a guy because if my grandmother ever found out, I couldn’t face it. “I’m 58 years old and my grandmother still controls my life.” Vic Vela covers the Legislature for Colorado Community Media.

time. I talked to Sue Schafer and she’s concerned there’s no moderation, and it’s on both sides. But I think it’s your own party that bugs you the most because you expect certain things from the other party, but it disappoints you when your party does things you don’t like.” Gerou said it is social issues — such as gay marriage, debates over abortion and immigration reform — that is hurting the GOP brand. “I hope they stop focusing on social issues and get back to doing what Republicans have always done well, and that’s represent business,” Gerou said. “I wish the social issues would go away. “I look back at someone like Barry Goldwater, when they asked him his thoughts on gays in the military. And he said, `I don’t care. If they want to serve our country, let them serve our country.’ That’s the type of Republican I like to be around.” Murray agrees that social issues have hurt the party and have turned off many voters, including many Republicans. “It’s particularly difficult to the old-line, establishment Republicans who have not been accustomed to the social issues being brought into the conservation,” Murray said. “And the new Republicans, too. All of the young interns and aides at the Capitol have a

Union Station transit hub set to open Project links rail, bus, shuttle services By Jane Reuter

jreuter@coloradocommunitymedia.com The transit hub of RTD’s renovated Union Station, which merges light rail, commuter rail, Amtrak lines, buses, taxis, shuttles, bicycles and pedestrians into a central access point in downtown Denver, opens May 9. Its most visible element is a white canopy reminiscent of Denver International Airport’s, under which both Amtrak and future commuter rail line to DIA will serve passengers. The East Rail Line will transport passengers from Union Station to the airport by commuter rail, a method that is faster and makes fewer stops than light rail. Set to begin service in 2016, those trains will depart every 15 minutes for the 35-minute trip to DIA. South suburban residents won’t need to travel downtown to take the East Line. They

will instead to be able to take the light rail on a future Z Line route from Lone Tree’s Lincoln Station to an East Line connection at Peoria and Interstate 70. The ride from Lone Tree to DIA will take about an hour and 20 minutes. Cost hasn’t yet been established. Another highlight of the transit center is a 22-bay underground bus concourse, which extends from just east of the light rail stop to the Union Station building. It replaces the Market Street bus station. The historic Union Station building and hotel, adjacent to the transit hub, also is under redevelopment with a planned July completion. It will include about 22,000 square feet of ground-floor shops and restaurants, a public common area and great hall, large outdoor plaza and 110 hotel rooms. The transit center is part of RTD’s FasTracks project. That plan also includes a 2.3-mile extension of the southeast light rail line, from its current end point at Lincoln Avenue to the east side of Interstate 25 at RidgeGate Parkway. Negotiations continue to accelerate the construction of that extension.

Oil and gas measure fizzles in Senate Bill would have required probe of health impacts By Vic Vela

vvela@coloradocommunitymedia.com A bill that would have created a study of the health impacts of oil and gas drilling on Front Range residents died in a state Senate committee on April 29. The bill — which increased in cost over time — was killed in the Senate Appropriations Committee, following a 5-2 vote. Democratic Sens. Pat Steadman of Denver and Mary Hodge of Brighton joined all Republican committee members in voting against the measure. A dejected bill sponsor expressed disap-

pointment after her effort failed. “I think the people’s voices have been silenced,” said Rep. Joann Ginal, D-Fort Collins. House Bill 1297 would have required the state to conduct a three-year health impact study on residents living in the Front Range counties of Adams, Arapahoe, Boulder, Broomfield, Larimer and Weld. The study would have included the surveying of residents living in those areas and the possible review of medical records. The effort was a response to concerns over the practice of hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking” — the practice of mixing of water, sand and chemicals and blasting the mixture deep into the ground to crack porous rock and free up oil and gas. The study would have focused on counties that include communities that have

sought to either ban or limit the practice of fracking over the last few years. Ginal and other bill supporters said a study would provide both a health and educational benefit for Coloradans who want to know more about the impacts of the controversial oil and gas industry moneymaker and job creator. However, the bill received only a single Republican vote in the House. Some legislators and oil and gas industry leaders opposed the effort for reasons that included concerns that the study would be slanted toward the viewpoint of fracking opponents. Money was also an issue. Originally, the bill sought only to include Adams, Boulder, Larimer and Weld counties as part of the study. But a House committee added Arapahoe County and the City and County

County inmate dies in custody Coroner, sheriff investigating death of 51-year-old man Staff report A 51-year-old inmate died while in the custody of the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office on April 29.

hood. Hasley was uncooperative with the Arapahoe County deputies who contacted him, and showed signs of intoxication. Hasley received medical treatment at a local hospital before being taken to jail and charged with second-degree assault, violating a protection order and obstructing the deputies. Hasley was found breathing but unresponsive during a routine check on the morning of April 29. Medical staff at the jail immediately responded, and he was transported to a local hospital.

He was pronounced dead by hospital staff at 7:22 p.m. The death is being investigated by the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office and the Arapahoe County Coroner’s Office. “The protection order (that Hasley was accused of violating) was issued to Mr. Hasley without a protected person, just prohibiting Mr. Hasley from certain activity,” said ACSO Bureau Chief Glenn Thompson on May 2. “No additional information to report yet, as we are still waiting on the coroner’s office to complete their investigation.”

of Broomfield to that list. The additions increased the study’s cost to about $700,000 — something that concerned Ginal before it even got to the Senate Appropriations Committee. Senate President Morgan Carroll, D-Aurora, said she did not know if cost or other factors led to the bill’s defeat. Carroll did say that she supported the bill and that “it’s a basic responsibility (of the state)” to look out for the health of its residents. “I think sooner or later it behooves all of us to get a credible and independent study,” Carroll said. “And, from the oil and gas perspective, if (fracking) is as safe as they say, then they should have credible independent studies that confirm that.” Ginal said she intends to revive the effort next year.

Friends offer style with a side of magic Salon owners keep Littleton residents ‘Spellbound’ By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@coloradocommunitymedia.com Lois McKinney and Bridget Castillo say they just want to help people become beautiful souls from the inside out, and they don’t worry about people who call them kooks. “We’re not going to eat your babies or sacrifice your pets,” said McKinney on April 29. The two are both proud Wiccans, and recently blended their spirituality with their other passion to open Spellbound Metaphysical Salon & Boutique at 1289 W. Littleton Blvd. “I’ve had different professional experiences where I was always trying to please the masses, and now I’m not trying to please anybody but myself,” said Castillo. Wicca is a pagan religion that often intertwines magic and a belief in both gods and goddesses around respect for the earth and natural forces, with a “do no harm” core value. To that end, the boutique sells charms, herb and oils alongside Paul Mitchell hair products. Visitors can request a haircut followed by a tarot reading, or highlights followed by white magic to banish “astral nasties.” They can rid your eyebrows of wayward strands, or your house of wayward spirits. The fragrance of incense negates the pungent odor of perm solution, and “witchballs” glisten in the sunlight waiting to capture any negative energy that walks through the door. “People come in and say they’re stagnating in life or working toward a new job, and we give them the tools to take home to work on where they want to go in bettering their lives,” said Castillo, often in the form of anointed candles. “My candles have gotten lots of people pregnant,” McKinney said with a laugh. When the two met several years ago, Castillo had already established her spiri-

tual path, but McKinney was searching. “I didn’t have much spirituality except for what I grew up with, and it wasn’t quite right for me,” she said. “Bridget was my mentor. Like energy attracts like energy, so the two of us became a strong force.” Once they realized that, they moved out of the 180-square-foot booth they rented together and set forth becoming the ethereal entrepreneurs they are today. They had both worked in Littleton before and knew that’s where they wanted to be. “We liked the closeness of everybody, the community feel, the diversity,” said Castillo. “Nobody’s alone, and there’s a willingness to be involved and help each other.” McKinney added that being in a diverse neighborhood helped them compensate for a few customers they lost who weren’t comfortable with their new venture. “Being in a neighborhood with real people, we get walk-ins because of who we are,” she said. “Some people make us all out to be kooks, but we’re just normal people that want to live our lives, love our families and help people.” They want their neighbors to know that they hope to serve the diversity, not just like-minded folks. “We welcome all types of people, all faiths, all walks of life, and we hope the community will be as welcoming to us,” said Castillo. Although they opened in January, they saved their grand opening celebration for one of Wicca’s most important holidays. Beltane, what most people know as May Day, celebrates the halfway point between spring and summer, representing a time of maturing growth, fertility and endurance — fitting wishes for a new business. “We just want people to be drawn to us and just be comfortable when they walk in,” said McKinney.

Local girls learn to give gladly Birthdays mean giving, not getting By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@coloradocommunitymedia.com Three little girls in the Montanos’ Highlands Ranch household keep the home filled with so much energy and light that the family has plenty to share, says mom Alexandra. “They just have such beautiful hearts, and it’s so endearing to see how much they care for each other and others,” she said. The energy is especially high during the family’s birthday season — Annabelle, 5, Caroline, 4, and Juliette, 1, were born within six weeks of each other, with Juliette entering the world on Cinco de Mayo last year. This year, the two older girls chose to fill donation bins instead of toy boxes. “We are just so abundantly blessed, we want to be able to bless others,” said their mom. Caroline became enchanted with firefighters after recently meeting a group of them at a local grocery store. They let her climb up in their fire truck and even sit in the driver’s seat. That’s when she decided that she wanted her birthday party to help them. “I gave the money to them to donate in case they need new stuff, like shoes and socks,” said Caroline.

The party, which featured fire-safety activities and a firefighter cake, raised $260 for the Littleton Firefighters Foundation. Caroline and her mom presented the money during the foundation’s annual chili cook-off fundraiser April 19 at Platte River Bar and Grill. The foundation provides fire-safety education, supports families of injured or killed firefighters, offers emergency funds to help people displaced by fire and contributes to local charities. Visit www.lfff.org for more information. Next up was Annabelle’s 6th birthday party on May 3, during which she was gathering donations for the Denver Children’s Home, a project inspired by her American Heritage Girls club. The hour before the party, the Monsanto home was filled with what Alexandra says is pretty typical for one with three little ones younger than 6 — giggles and music, arts and crafts, dancing and adventures, squeals and kisses fill every moment. “Your hands are just a little busier,” said Alexandra. “Chaos is our new normal.” She hopes her girls will grow with that excitement rather than out of it. “My hope for my girls is that they are able to realize their full potential and know that they can make a difference,” the mother said. “That difference may seem small to them, but I never want them to feel that they can never do enough. Or if they grow up and want to be president or an astronaut, I just want them to be so excited about what they choose.”

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

prospective buyers away altogether. In most cases, you can make a reasonable pre-inspection yourself if you know what you’re looking for, and knowing what you’re looking for can help you prevent little problems from growing into costly and unmanageable ones. To help homesellers deal with this issue before their homes are listed, a free report entitled “11 Things You Need to Know to Pass Your Home Inspection” has been compiled which explains the issues involved.

Local war heroes honored by French President Hollande bestows highest honor By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@coloradocommunitymedia.com Two south-metro World War II heroes were heralded in a regal ceremony April 24, held in the Old Supreme Court Chambers at the Colorado Capitol and attended by local dignitaries and proud family and friends. “My life is richer for having known them,” said Col. Wesley West, retired from the Air Force. Senior Master Sgt. Elmo “Mitch” Mischler, of the Air Force, and Staff Sgt. Walter Quering, of the Air Corps, earned the praise of French President François Hollande, who granted them the National Order of The Legion of Honor in the rank of Chevalier (Knight). It is the highest distinction in France, created by Napoleon in 1802. “This is overwhelming,” said Quering. “I still correspond with people in France, and everyone I talk to admires the American people, they really do.” Mischler, a Centennial resident, thanked his family for their support. “The Air Force was good for me,” he said. “It was a growing-up process.” Standing in for Hollande was Jeffery Richards, the honorary consul general of France for Colorado. “This is a symbol of great and longstanding friendship between our countries,” he said. “We honor those who, as young men, left home to defend democracy and human rights.” Mischler was born in the tiny eastern Colorado town of Eckley on July 11, 1923. He enlisted at Fort Leavenworth in December 1942 and arrived in England in September 1943, assigned to the 333rd Squadron, 94th Bomb Group. He was part of a 600-airplane raid on Berlin in March of that year, flying the “Pride of the Yanks,” surviving a mission that lost roughly a third of its fleet. “We also remember the ultimate 9:28 AMsacrifice of many of your comrades who rest on French soil today,” said Richards. Over the next 30 years, Mischler served as a flight engineer, crew chief, flight chief, line chief, quality-control inspector and superintendent, retiring in 1977. His decorations include the Bronze Star, Distinguished Flying Cross, four Air Medals, a Good Conduct Medal, Meritorious Service Medal and numerous campaign credits. After his service, he worked in the Colorado Capitol security department for 12 years and now volunteers at the Wings over the Rockies Air and Space Museum. He was married in 1950 and has two children and two grandchildren. Quering was born in Glassport, Pa., on Oct. 12, 1923. He enlisted in May 1943 and landed in England in Sep-

A month later, Quering was wounded himself while on his 34th combat mission over Germany, and ended the war in an Army hospital. His decorations include three Air Medals, the Purple Heart and the Good Conduct Medal. He also has the European-African-Middle Eastern Campaign Medal with three battle stars. After the war, Quering moved to Colorado and completed a degree in accounting and economics at Regis

University in 1949. The entrepreneur then opened his own insurance company and an electronics company, General Sound and Electronics. He and his wife Catherine, married in 1947 and raised three daughters who gave them two grandchildren. Catherine passed away in 1995. Quering lives in Littleton. Mischler and Quering join four other Colorado men in accepting the honor: Lt. Leonard Siekmeier Jr., Army, of Colorado Springs; Staff Sgt. Claude Osbourn, Army Air Corps, of Broomfield; Pfc. Richard Walker, Army, of Boulder; Pfc. Edward Seitz, Army, of Colorado Springs.

Bubble-wrap bliss for kids

On May 14, more than 600 students at Laura Ingalls Wilder Elementary School will come together to set the record for the “Most People Popping Bubble Wrap” by jumping up and down on the Bubble Wrap barefoot, while singing “I Have a Little Turtle.” “When I was running for student council president, I was trying to come up with a big moment in my speech. Then it finally hit me. I was going to attempt to break a world record. As a result of this and my speech, I qualified as the president of student council,” said Kade Kurowski. “Now I am trying to fulfill this promise.” The event will begin at 2:30 p.m. To be eligible for the record this event will be captured on video. Kurowski thanks Steve Spangler, student adviser, and event host Denver Boxes and Four Reel Productions for their support. “I am excited that this will bring the students together and show our

school spirit,” she said.

Relief for runners on trail

Runners, walkers and cyclists on the Mary Carter Greenway Trail now have a place to go when they have to go. The brand new Mary Carter Greenway Restroom sits just feet off the trail, north of Bowles Avenue in Littleton. It can also be accessed by golfers from the adjacent Littleton Golf Course. The restroom building features flush toilets, sinks, a drinking fountain and a shelter with two picnic tables. A lightning protection system was also installed to give trail users and golfers safe refuge during a thunderstorm. The building replaces a former portable toilet and offers much improved amenities and comfort. The project was equally funded by the City of Littleton (48 percent), South Suburban Parks and Recreation (48 percent) and Littleton resident Jim Taylor (4 percent). The contractor was RMA Group Inc. of Denver.

A bill that would have allowed marijuana to be used as a treatment option for post-traumatic stress disorder failed in a House committee on April 28. House Bill 1364 would have added PTSD to a list of eight other conditions that qualify sufferers for medical marijuana treatment. Rep. Jonathan Singer, D-Longmont, a bill sponsor, argued that those with PTSD should be given the option to consult with doctors as to whether medical pot is a viable treatment option for their condition. That’s better practice than sufferers having to resort to figuring out their best pot pathway through retail pot shop clerks, he said. “Should it be the bud-tenders on Colfax or the doctors at Kaiser?” Singer asked the House State, Veterans and Military Affairs Committee. Colorado voters, through the 2000 passage of Amendment 20, approved eight conditions that qualify for medical pot treatment, including cancer, glaucoma and AIDS. The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment has the ability to add other conditions to that list, but it has not done so since Amendment 20 passed. Several witnesses testified that marijuana has helped alleviate their PTSD symptoms, including military veterans who served in conflicts and wars, ranging from Vietnam to Iraq and Afghanistan. “Cannabis made it to where I don’t have to take any of these prescription drugs,” testified Sean Azzariti, an Iraq War veteran. “It saved my life.” Singer said that it should be up to doctors to decide what is best for their patients

and cited high suicide rates among veterans as reason enough to keep all treatment options open. “I don’t think that every veteran who commits suicide… could have used medical marijuana and it would have saved their life. I don’t believe that for a second,” Singer said. “But I do believe that some of them might have been able to use this as a tool in their toolbox to have that conversation with their doctor to make the right decisions for them.” Key opposition testimony came from Dr. Larry Wolk, CDPHE’s chief medical officer. Wolk said that CDPHE already has a process in place that allows the department to add health conditions to the medical marijuana list. Wolk said the department has considered the addition of PTSD to the list twice before and rejected it both times. Wolk also said that there isn’t enough research to show that marijuana is an effective treatment for PTSD. Some committee members had legal concerns over the bill, with some wondering whether the legislation would be akin to lawmakers taking it upon themselves to changing Amendment 20 language in the state Constitution. “I don’t always think the right decision for us to make is, `Well, let’s just let the courts decide,’” said Rep. Tim Dore, RElizabeth, who opposed the bill. Rep. Kathleen Conti, R-Littleton, said her opposition to the bill was personal. She said that marijuana use on the part of her child led to addictions to more dangerous drugs. “My personal life story is one that has shown marijuana to absolutely be a gateway drug and I watched it become a gateway drug from marijuana to Oxycontin to heroin for someone I love with all of my heart,” Conti said. The bill died following a 6-5 vote. Two Democrats — Reps. Jeanne Labuda and Angela Williams, both of Denver — joined all four Republican committee members in voting against the bill.

LEGISLATIVE BRIEFS Annual budget signed into law

Gov. John Hickenlooper signed into law a $24 billion state budget on April 30 that includes increased funding for education and disaster relief. The annual long bill replaces some of the education funding that was lost during recession years and pumps $100 million into the higher education system. The budget also includes about $21 million that will go toward the leasing or purchasing of an aerial firefighting fleet. In addition, money will be set aside to provide assistance for those who are impacted by wildfires and flooding. Rainy day funding will jump from 5 percent to 6.5 percent, under the new budget.

Suicide commission clears Legislature

303-905-8047 RENTALS

Medical marijuana not approved for PTSD

A bill that creates a suicide prevention commission is on its way to the governor’s desk. The legislation aims to provide answers as to why Colorado has such a high suicide rate. Colorado consistently ranks in the top 10 of states with the highest number of suicides. Senate Bill 88 creates a state commission that provides recommendations to the governor’s office, the Legislature and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment.

The bill passed the House on May 1 after it had previously passed the Senate. The bill was sponsored by Sen. Linda Newell, D-Littleton, and Rep. Tracy Kraft-Tharp, D-Arvada.

Education measure goes to governor

A bill that provides $180 million dollars in new K-12 education funding is on its way to the governor’s desk. The Student Success Act puts $20 million toward third-grade reading programs and provides a uniform transparency system that allows the public to see how the new dollars are being spent. The bill also backfills $110 million in education funding cuts that occurred during lean budget years. The bill passed both legislative chambers with large bipartisan support, most recently in the House on April 30.

Oil and gas fines bill advances

Penalties for violating oil and gas rules will increase for the first time in nine years, under a bill that is expected to be signed by Gov. John Hickenlooper. House Bill 1356 increases daily fines from the current $1,000 to $15,000 for violations that include hazardous spills. The bill passed the Senate on April 30, following a 20-15 vote. The bill had previously passed the House.

opinions / yours and ours

No go best signal for red-light bill A bill to ban red-light cameras and photo-radar systems inspired healthy debate in the Statehouse but ultimately did not get the green light, and we’re fine with the call. Further we agree with one of our local legislators, Rep. Max Tyler, D-Lakewood, who opposed a late amendment to the respective bill to fund a study on red-light camera effectiveness. Funds that would go toward a study, could perhaps go to another CDOT bridge, Tyler noted. No pressing need for more research. Both sides have sources — on one hand that the technology improves public safety and on the other hand the use of the technology actually has the reverse effect, and further that the practices function more as a cash cow than a tool targeting public safety.

our view It’s worth noting that this proposed and oft-discussed ban on red-light cameras and photo radar got a strong push at the Legislature this year with bipartisan support. Rep. Scott Renfroe, R-Greeley and House Speaker Mark Ferrandino, DDenver, were among those who gave arguments that the cash-producing systems do not improve safety. But with every urging to do away with the cameras, plenty of legislators and others stepped forward to say the technology comes to the aid of public safety in their

neck of the woods. We value these local voices, and support local control of the technology. Technology and the automation of tasks that would otherwise be carried out by people increases efficiency and can often in practice be much more consistent and comprehensive. To that aim, earlier in the session, we reported Jessie Ulibarri of Commerce City saying technology is especially vital in areas where “human management is impossible.” But that’s the trick and where some controversy lies. We recognize a healthy mistrust of the mounted cameras keeping tabs on drivers. People wonder if existing regulations governing the the use of the cameras is enough. Further, are yellow lights shortened to bring in more revenue or does

common sense balanced with guidelines and regulations prevail? And are camera practices going to instant-replay pro sports heights with each line drawn hard and fast and little left in the way discretion? For now, we are glad the practices remain in local control. The debate has been eye-opening for many and should encourage cities to make sure red-light cameras and photo radar systems are being used in a way that is truly focused on public safety and efficiency. With each advance in technology comes many questions about ethics and appropriate use. We are in the thick of the increasing prevalence of lenses that watch everything everywhere. In this case, better to refine it — the where, when and how of it all — rather than switch it off.

Don’t wait for future, create your future

One family makes two very different people Do you have a sister or a brother that you love very much? With whom you have almost nothing in common? And sometimes you think one of you was adopted? This is dedicated to Cindy. I can start with cats and dogs. By now you know that I found my dachshund at a no-kill animal shelter. The best: MaxFund. Cindy has found a succession of cats in her back yard. Cats know when there is a vacancy. I don’t think my sister has ever paid for a cat. One just shows up when the previous occupant has taken leave. Cindy is a retired grade-school teacher who is still teaching. She is still at the same school in Sterling Heights, Mich., where her teaching career began, over 40 years ago. Now she mostly subs and fills in wherever they need her, and that includes hallway bulletin board duty. I taught at four colleges and universities in three states. Neither one of us could do what the other one did. The thought of having a classroom full of kindergartners or third-graders, her most common teaching assignments, leaves me with a dry tongue and the shakes. Cindy is just about the nicest person I know. She is kind and generous. She is loving and caring. She rarely has an unkind word to say, although we are both contemptuous of Brent Musburger. Who isn’t? When our father and mother were in their final glide patterns, Cindy tirelessly took care of both of them, and even bathed our mother. Words that could describe me — crotchety, grouchy, crabby, cynical, sarcastic — could never be used to describe her. This is where the adoption angle comes in. Where she is pleasant and nice, I am ornery and sullen. We had exactly the same childhood experiences, an equal amount of love and attention (almost), but we are night and day. How does that happen? Our father came back from the war after 30 missions. If the house caught on fire I would take out two things: Smitty and my father’s flight jacket. I can see it from where I am sitting, and it chokes me up every time I see it, knowing where it has been.

There is a B-17 Flying Fortress that tours the country now. I went to see it at a regional airport a few years ago. And sat nearby and cried. Dad came back and started a family with his high school sweetheart. Cindy is 14 months older than I am. They really did it with her. Album after album, bronzed baby shoes, and a cedar chest full of things she had touched. I think there is one black-and-white picture of me at that age, and it’s somewhat out of focus. I think I was in the bathtub, or the kitchen sink. Cindy is deliberate, conservative, she reads and follows directions and instructions, does exactly what she is told, never tries to be abstract, or humorous, or particularly clever. My opposites. One day a couple of years ago we were in a grocery store together to buy dinner, and Cindy decided she wanted iced tea. So she went to the aisle where iced teas in bottles and cans were displayed. I left her and finished all of my shopping. I came back and she was still standing there, in front of the bottles and cans of iced tea, I left her again and drove the car to an IHOP in Ypsilanti and had breakfast (scrambled eggs, bacon, hash browns, toast, oh, and orange juice), came back and she was still standing there. So I started a countdown: 10-9-8-7, telling her that I was going to choose one for her if she didn’t choose one right away. That evening she enjoyed the unsweetened tea that I had chosen for her. With love. Craig Marshall Smith is an artist, educator and Highlands Ranch resident. He can be reached at craigmarshallsmith@comcast.net.

How cool would it be to have a crystal ball? I mean the real deal — the ability to actually see into the future. Do you fall into the category of people who wish they could see the future, or are you in the group that prefers to see life as a journey and the more mystery and adventure the better? In some of the responses that I have received over the years referring to one of my columns, some of our local readers actually state that they wish they had a crystal ball so they could see what would happen if they actually practiced some of the ideas, strategies, or tactics that I have written about. What are some of those things? There’s goal-setting, staying focused, having a positive attitude, encouraging others, living with hope, building better and stronger relationships, living and working with passion and purpose, and working on mind, body and spirit. Well I can share with you, beyond any shadow of a doubt, and I do not need a crystal ball to tell me what would happen … if any one of us, if all of us, applied even just one of the concepts mentioned above … life would be better at some level and in some way. What happens is, we look at things that appear on the list above, we have the best of intentions to act upon them, and then we let our cynicism and doubt take over where our hearts, minds and bodies should begin. We fall into a negative self-talk pattern instead of a positive self-talk actionoriented empowerment state. You know how it sounds: “That’s all just

fluff,” or “That stuff may work for others but it will never ever work for me.” Maybe it sounds more like, “My life is just fine, I don’t need to change anything, but you know Bob or Charlie or Mary or Beth, they could sure stand to change a few things.” Pretend with me for a minute that we all had a crystal ball. And each and every one of us could look into our future, whether it’s two weeks from now, six months from now or a year from now. And we had actually applied and committed to one or more of the items mentioned above like setting goals, staying focused, living with a positive attitude, being a source of encouragement, living with hope, working hard on our relationships, becoming re-energized with passion and purpose, and becoming well-rounded in mind, body, and spirit.

But I would bet that if we had that crystal ball, and the commitment was applied in any of the areas, what we would see is success, achievement, love, laughter, better health, stronger faith, and Norton continues on Page 9

Innovators keep state economy expanding Colorado is known worldwide for our endless opportunities for outdoor recreation, our 300-plus days of sunshine a year, and even our diversity of craft brewers. We have also developed a solid reputation as a hub for invention and innovation. Colorado companies have an entrepreneurial spirit that is driving new ideas, spurring economic growth, and creating jobs. Recently, we saw some of this firsthand, touring companies across the state that are thriving because of their innovative products and solutions. From Grand Junction to Fort Collins, Colorado companies are focused on inventing the future. In Boulder, we met with the owners of Newton Running. Their advanced sole technology is propelling both runners — and the Newton business — faster and farther. In Grand Junction, we visited Tim and Christy Fry, who moved here from Ohio to invest in Colorado-developed technology because of our great quality of life and business-friendly climate. Their company, Mountain Racing Products, makes topof-the-line biking components that are shipped all over the world, and they em-

ploy nearly two dozen Coloradans. We also stopped by Western Slope Industries, the only U.S.-based manufacturer of large, industrial machines that fold and seal packages for food products. They employ more than 60 people in their 45,000-square-foot facility. In Fort Collins and Loveland, we toured the VanDyne SuperTurbo Headquarters and the engines lab where the company tests its equipment. VanDyne’s patented SuperTurbo engine combines a turbocharger and a transmission into one device, improving fuel efficiency and horsepower while reducing emissions. The SuperTurbo can power the likes of city buses, Caterpillar

bulldozers, and John Deere tractors. Finally, in Park Hill, we saw Never Summer Industries turn blocks of locally sourced wood into high-quality skis and snowboards. Never Summer is one of only a handful of companies still manufacturing snowboards in the United States, producing more than 240 snowboards a day. All of these companies are building success through innovation. And one thing almost all of them have in common is patented technology. You may not know it, but that convex and concave design on your Never Summer snowboard is original, patented technology. And that distinctive pop sensation you feel on the balls of your feet when you’re running in a Newton shoe? That’s patented too. So is Western Slope Industries’ machine process that makes the cardboard packaging that holds your morning orange juice. The patent process is an important part of our state’s economy, helping inventors and entrepreneurs build successful businesses, generate revenue, and create new jobs. That’s one of the reasons we coordinated

a statewide effort to bring a satellite patent office right here to Colorado. The opening of the United States Patent and Trademark Satellite Office this summer in Denver — one of only four cities nationwide selected to house a satellite office — benefits firms like these by providing an improved and more accessible patent process. That means reduced review times for patent applications, reduced costs for patent filers, and more access to U.S. Patent and Trademark Office resources throughout the process. Plus, it will create hundreds of direct and indirect jobs and add roughly $440 million in economic activity to our state. Colorado’s deeply embedded culture of innovation has established our state as a destination for inventors, innovators, and new ideas. The opening of the USPTO satellite facility solidifies this reputation. From energy-efficient engines to high-tech running shoes, companies throughout our state are creating a bright future and propelling our state forward. Democrat Michael Bennet has represented Colorado in the U.S. Senate since 2009.

News flash: CCM doesn’t need a fake award Paying for awards? There’s just no honor in that By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@coloradocommunitymedia.com The first clue something was fishy was when Colorado Community Media got an email saying “Castle Rock News-Press has been selected for the 2014 Best of Littleton Awards for Publishers.” While the Castle Rock News-Press is indeed a CCM paper, Littleton residents might wonder why a Littleton paper wasn’t selected by a “local” organization for such a prestigious-sounding award. So how did that happen? “All 2014 Awards are issued based on the location of your corporate headquarters even though your service area may extend beyond that town,” reads the Littleton Business Awards website, to which the email invited us. OK, but CCM is headquartered in Highlands Ranch these days. Perhaps just an innocent mix-up? CRNP is a great paper, and it does win lots of awards from the

Colorado Press Association. Might as well add another, right? So how do we get it? “Most business organizations charge their members annual dues and with that money sponsor an annual award program,” reads the website. “The Best of Littleton Award Program does not charge membership dues and as an award recipient, there is no membership requirement. We simply ask each award recipient to pay for the cost of their awards.” Wait, what? Pay for it? How much? Well, there are three options ranging from $79.99 to $199.99. Can’t we just get a piece of paper like the CPA hands out? I mean, how much could an award from a company we’ve never heard of, judged by nameless people we’ve never met, with an 888 phone number, accompanied by a lame press release (that part’s free), possibly be worth? Absolutely nothing, say real local business leaders. “We have had had the ‘honor’ of receiving this award several times over the past five years,” Terry McElhaney, manager of communications for the South Metro

The company has duplicate websites set up for cities across the United States, despite its claim that: “The Littleton Award Program was established to recognize the best of local businesses in our community. Our organization works exclusively with local business owners, trade groups, professional associations and other business advertising and marketing groups.” The award is not affiliated with the City of Littleton or any local organization. “I’ve never heard of it, and it seems odd that the Castle Rock News-Press would receive a Best of Littleton Award,” said Kelli Narde, the city’s spokeswoman. Businesses looking for legitimate acclaim would do well to align themselves with their local chamber or merchants association.

Denver Chamber of Commerce, said with a laugh. “Yes, it is a marketing scam to sell their ‘awards.’ I can see businesses that are eager for any type of award to fall for this approach just so they can display a crystal trophy, even if it is for money. The website doesn’t have any qualifications as to how they determine their winners, and I’m assuming they go through social media sites and pick their targets. Award programs using actual customer input such as ‘Best of the Best,’ which CCM does, are much more legitimate.” As are the chamber’s Annual Small Business Leadership of the Year Awards, always eagerly anticipated and attended by actual people you’ve probably heard of, if not met personally.

basically how the idea got started. “It was just a hobby that got way out of control,” said Keating. “It was really at the point we couldn’t even park in our garage.” Her husband was the natural choice to be the master brewer, as he’s a professional master gardener by day. He’s using as many local ingredients as he can get his hands on, and says he’ll change up the offerings on a regular basis. “I don’t think we want to pigeonhole ourselves into any certain kind of style,” she said. “We don’t want to be labeled, we want to cater to everybody.” Mike Keating adds he doesn’t want to get bored, either. “I like beer with some flavor, but I’m not opposed to drinking large amounts of Coors Light, either,” he said.

Plans Continued from Page 1

Nothing else from the original plan will change; the architects achieved the higher density by reducing the average size of each unit from 1,473 square feet to 1,110. Despite state-level regulatory challenges discouraging developers from building for-sale multifamily projects, Berton says that’s what he intends to do. He expects them to sell for between $200,000 and $450,000, mostly to young professionals and empty nesters. “People who want the Littleton address, but they want to be able to travel and those types of things,” he said. People perhaps like Courtney Hunsicker, who recently graduated from law school and lives downtown now. “I decided to live down here because I still wanted that urban

Blazek said the true test came when they brought the beer out of the garage. “Your friends are always going to have good things to say, but it’s really neat that strangers, people we’ve never met, had good things to say,” he said. They hired one of those strangers as their general manager, and Lael Callaway says he’s impressed with the transformation of both the space and the partners. “When I had my interview here, this place was a shell, and now it’s something off the charts,” he said. “And watching all these guys adapt and learn something they’ve never done before is refreshing.” Despite the challenges, everyone agrees 38 State — so named because Colorado was the 38th state admitted to the union — was worth it. “For me, personally, I’m proud about the fact that I won’t be that old man talking to somebody, saying ‘I could have done that, I should have done that,’” said Mike Keating. “I can say with a smile, ‘I did that.’”

feel, but close to light rail and transit,” she told the board. “I know this is the type of place I’d like to live.” She and one other neighbor were in favor, but four people spoke against the project during the public hearing. Two who live on Curtice Street directly behind it said the height, capped at 66 feet, would block their views. But since that was already approved, it’s a moot point. “When it was approved in 2007, there weren’t too many residents living on Curtice, it was mostly rentals,” said John Gerkin. “Now we are responsible citizens that are concerned about our lifestyles.” He didn’t buy the developer’s study that showed the project would add just 42 vehicle trips in the neighborhood during morning rush hour and 78 in the evening, or that 1.5 parking spaces per unit would be enough. Traffic engineer Steve Tuttle said the proximity to light rail, within a quarter mile of the down-

town station, would reduce such impacts by as much as 65 percent. There’s also easy access to the trail system and downtown. “If there’s anywhere in Littleton downtown that will accept a more intense use, this is the area,” said Randy Duzan, board chair. “It’s right by ACC, and it’s a block away from Santa Fe.” It’s long been a goal of city council to increase connections between downtown and the college, and Cindy Somers, ACC’s vice president of administrative services, told the board its administrators fully support the project. “It’s certainly a significant improvement over what’s residing in that space now,” she said. Only Carrie Moore and Karina Elrod voted against the measure, with the other board members saying it’s the right project in the right place. “Our downtown needs people, and I think this is going to bring the right kind of people that will bring vibrancy to downtown,” said Andrew Graham.

the committee process. Supporters of the technology asserted that the devices serve as a blessing for understaffed police agencies and that the presence of the cameras curbs bad habits on the part of drivers. “If you just look at the money side and ignore the public-safety side, to me the public-safety side triumphs,” said Rep. Jeanne Labuda, DDenver. The bill’s gutted version called for an effectiveness study that would have been undertaken by the Colorado Department of Transportation. But House Appropriations Committee member Max Tyler, D-Lakewood, wasn’t willing to fund the legislation at the possible expense of oth-

er CDOT projects. “I’m wondering what bridge is not going to be built, what road is not going to be protected,” Tyler said. “Where are they going to get the money for this, Mr. Speaker?” The bill’s last chance for survival would have allowed it to go to a vote in the full House, where it could have been amended to its original form. But the committee rejected that motion. Ferrandino knew there wasn’t much hope for the bill, acknowledging as much to reporters the day before the hearing. Having accepted defeat during the hearing, the House speaker — who is not accustomed to being on the losing end of a piece of legislation — drew laughter when he joked about his colleagues’ lack of support. “When did I become part of the minority?” quipped Ferrandino.

Lone Tree doctor finds meaning in missions Plastic surgeon joins team to help disadvantaged By Jane Reuter

jreuter@coloradocommunitymedia.com When a poor African man posted a plea for medical help on RealSelf — a website most commonly tapped for advice on plastic surgery methods and surgeon reviews — the typical responsive chatter from doctors and patients fell silent. Clement Kihitula had a large keloid, an overgrowth of tissue, on the back of his neck, and no money for treatment. “Am from poor family in Tanzania East Africa where can’t afford treatment abroad,” Kihitula posted. “How can I get assistance?” Lone Tree doctor Stephen Weber was the only surgeon who offered to help Kihitula.

The 19-year-old growth was so large it limited Kihitula’s ability to move his head, and was so disfiguring that Weber said, “People would notice that before they noticed him.” Kihitula’s timing was almost perfect, dovetailing with Weber’s annual medical mission trip to eastern Africa. In midMarch, three weeks after the initial post, Weber operated on Kihitula in Sangida, Tanzania. The man’s home is on the road between the airport and Singida Regional Hospital, where the Outreach mission is conducted; he met the team in Singida the day they arrived. “I thank you for what you have done for me,” Kihitula recently wrote in an email to Weber. During that same two-week trip, Weber, fellow practice manager Camille Kamingo and 24 other American doctors, nurses and volunteers saw 350 patients and conducted 20 surgeries — all at no charge.

They repaired cleft palates, lips torn during domestic violence, skin damaged by cobra bites, cooking oil burns and other deformities and injuries. It’s a far cry from the Botox injections, liposuction surgeries and other procedures he regularly performs in Colorado. “I think we did a huge amount of good. We helped a lot of people,” Weber said. “Most people focus on cash-paying customers that pay the bills. That’s important to us, too. But I really think our most important service is the mission work — giving back to people who can’t afford or don’t have access to treatment, who are medically isolated.” The Outreach mission is conducted as a temporary clinic in conjunction with Singida Regional Hospital. Doctors who practice in the area are overworked and in short supply, focused almost exclusively on labor and delivery, and their training is limited. The Outreach team performed several

tonsillectomies because the African doctors don’t know how to do many such basic procedures, Weber said. Returning to his normal practice in Lone Tree is always a culture shock, Weber said. “It’s very hard to wrap your mind around operating with windows open and a fan going to operating in a state-of-theart, climate-controlled operating room,” he said. Despite the differences between facilities and clientele, Weber believes his patients in both countries have more in common than it would appear. His client base includes a mix of aesthetic, reconstruction and trauma procedures. “It’s a different demographic but I think it’s similar,” Weber said. “People want to look good and feel good — whether that’s a birth defect, treatment of a scar or changing the shape of your nose, I think the motivation is really similar.”

Don’t mourn fate of news too soon, say panelists Veteran journalists look at future of industry By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@coloradocommunitymedia.com Perhaps you’ve heard the news. Or not. Journalism is dead. Not so fast, say three veteran local journalists. “There are those who say we don’t need journalists anymore, because everybody’s a journalist,” said Ken Durham, who now teaches aspiring newshounds at Arapahoe Community College. “Well, when everybody’s a journalist, nobody’s a journalist. … People still want people to check facts.” He hosted the “This Just In: Journalism is Alive and Thriving in the Digital Age” panel on April 29 at ACC. Panelists discussed how rapidly changing technology in a rapidly changing world challenges all media outlets to come up with



a way to keep up, keep relevant and keep getting paid. “I think they’re trying different models, but I don’t think we’re there yet,” said Susan Thornton, a former Littleton mayor whose first job out of college was writing for U.S. News and World Report. She went on to write columns for the Denver Post and today runs her own media-relations and marketing company. “The community newspaper is more important now, because we’ve lost the community gathering place where everybody would sit around the pickle barrel and discuss what was going on,” she said. “Community news is the way of the future,” said Bob Burdick, former editor and president of the now-defunct Rocky Mountain News. He views it as defensive driving, alerting citizens to things like crime and the actions of local government. “You can act on it in time to change it,” he said. Now retired, Burdick recently served as Colorado Community Media’s edito-

rial adviser. “Somebody who says journalism is dead may or may not understand what journalism is and what it isn’t,” he said. What it is, he said, is acting as an agent for the people, finding out what’s interesting and distributing it to others. What it is not, all three panelists agreed, is someone sitting in a basement behind a computer, anonymously spouting opinions as facts. “Some sites unabashedly take one side,” said Burdick. “Some sites are simply gossip mongers, some sites are just trying to provoke you just to get a reaction. … You have to evaluate the facts in that context.” Thornton worries about people believing everything they read without considering the source. “I really worry about the future of this country with the demise of newspaper ethics,” she said. “This is central to the democracy. … They’re not going to vote well if they’re not informed.” But, she points out, technology has also led to some compelling moments

— consider the Arab Spring uprisings of 2011, which got widespread attention via Twitter. All three stress that to make it today, reporters have to continually learn new and diverse skills. Thornton, for example, went from being a beat reporter to writing grant requests, speeches, training materials, videos, opinion pieces and even books. She recently started running media-relations workshops for city managers and department heads, and she is now a licensed mediator. “It’s just some of the ways journalism can take you in your life,” she said. Dunham noted that in today’s economy, companies are moving away from having big communications departments to hiring just one or two people to do it all — everything from photography to video production to monthly newsletters to graphic design. “The thread that runs through all of that is communication,” said Burdick. “You can’t write just so you can be understood, you have to write so you can’t be misunderstood.”

CSO, yeah

The Colorado Symphony Orchestra, the bastion of classical taste and the guardian of musical tradition, is encouraging patrons to bring pot to the party during Classically Cannabis: The High Note Series, which marks a growing partnership between the CSO and the burgeoning cannabis industry in Colorado. Clever those symphony folks, who, for this series, seem to be swapping black tie for Rasta wear. Ganja! The High Note Series will be at The Space Gallery, 400 Santa Fe Drive, and all proceeds will benefit the Colorado Symphony. Classically Cannabis themes include Pan American Highway on May 23, Mississippi Blues Highway on July 18 and Summer Monsoon on Aug. 15. The series will culminate with a Red Rocks concert on Sept. 13; details to be announced soon. Note that the consumption of cannabis at Red Rocks is prohibited by law. “This partnership is part of an overall effort to reach out to every segment of our community,” said Jerome H. Kern, the Colorado Symphony’s CEO and, with Mary Rossick Kern, co-chair of its board of trustees. “Like the Colorado Symphony, the cannabis industry is entrepreneurial, innovative and responsive to the people of Colorado. These businesses have expressed a willingness to support the Colorado Symphony’s mission. Our doors are open to any legal, legitimate business that wants to help.” Since the symphony announced this cutting-edge musical series last week, spokeswoman Laura Bond says, “We’ve been pleased and energized by the response so far. … We’ve heard from people in Los Angeles, Australia, all over the country and the world. People recognize that this is a bold move, not without risks, and most have applauded the effort.”

‘The Great Gatsby’ Play brings iconic story to stage

is rich in illusion

By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe @coloradocommunitymedia.com “All the characters of this story are skilled at creating worlds around them that fit their version of reality, but none is more committed to dreams than Jay Gatsby. He is master of illusion, and, like other gifted magicians, the `Great Gatsby’ creates a beautiful world of deception. His blind commitment to the rags-to-riches American Dream betrays him …,” wrote Elizabeth Zurn, the new play dramaturg at Creede Repertory Theatre. It’s summer 1922 on New York’s Long Island.

Debut novel has roots in mysteries of past Author will appear at two events in area By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@coloradocommunitymedia.com In Justin Go’s debut novel, “The Steady Running of the Hour,” wealthy English mountaineer Ashley Walsingham succumbs in 1924 to the relentless ice and snow of Mount Everest — the same challenging mountain that just claimed a number of guides from Nepal last month. Walsingham had willed his fortune to former lover Imogen Soames-Andersson, who disappeared without claiming it, and 80 years later, her descendent Tristan Campbell hears from a London law firm that he may be the heir if he can prove his connection to Imogen. Debut novelist Go, who will appear at Tattered Cover/Colfax at 7:30 p.m. May 15 and at the sold-out Booktopia Boulder 2014 from May 16-18, has spun a complex, skillfully crafted, well-researched tale about the search for Imogen’s story and clues to her whereabouts some 80 years later. Where did she live? Were there any descendents? Can Tristan find believable clues? In London, Paris, Norway, Iceland … Chapters alternate between Ashley’s world, his war service — including horri-

Novelist Justin Go will talk about his new novel, “Steady Running of the Hour,” at Tattered Cover/Colfax on May 15. Courtesy photo fying descriptions of a soldier’s life in the trenches in France — and his later return to a pursuit of serious mountaineering. In a brief interval before reporting to World War I army duty, the young man, who had inherited a fortune (and could therefore pursue the mountain climbing), met and fell totally in love with erratic Imo-

gen Soames- Andersson. Their encounters in wartime London and surroundings are described with rich details of what people wore, what they thought about, what they ate and more. The complicated book alternates between chapters set in decades past and in today’s world as young Tristan follows

clues about Imogen, his great-grandmother, who wandered in search of happiness, and about her lover Ashley, who survived the horrors of war and was defeated by a mountain. There are letters, old records, maps, early newspaper accounts, musty attics, lots of cold and snow and eventually a connection to the world for Tristan in today’s setting. Go is a talented storyteller. He studied at University of California-Berkeley, where he received a bachelor’s degree in history and art history and University College, London, where he earned a master’s degree in English. He left his job with a law firm at age 27 to head to Berlin and write a novel, although he did not speak German. He traveled and wrote for three years: in England, Germany, France, Sweden, Iceland and to the base of Mount Everest, chasing his stories as his young protagonist did. He then worked in a New Orleans hotel as desk clerk, at age 32, while he completed his novel. When Go sent unsolicited copies to agents, he had immediate response — a highly unusual situation — and was soon launched, with publication in Britain and the U.S. in many languages. Anyone familiar with the difficulties of even getting through to an editor at a major publisher will recognize what a remarkable story centers on this young author — who is now at work on a second novel.

‘Tango Suite’ is work by noted pianist Concert is part of Englewood series By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@coloradocommunitymedia.com Eric Bertoluzzi will conduct Up Close and Musical, an ensemble of Colorado Symphony Orchestra musicians, in the finale of the Chamber Music of the Masters season at 2 p.m. on May 17 in Hampden Hall at the Englewood Civic Center. The concert honors the late, beloved Englewood mayor, Olga Wolosyn, who was a champion for arts in her city. She died in September 2007. Featured on the program is a new work, “Tango Suite,” by pianist/composer Jonathan Geer, a Texan. A graduate of Berklee College of Music in Boston, with a degree in film scoring, Geer has worked with directors local and international. He performs regularly with the Austin Piazzolla Quintet, which specializes in music by the late Argentine composer Astor Piazolla, who invented the nuevo tango style.

eled after some of the more traditional tangos that Piazzolla wrote.” The tempo is fairly steady and the length is fairly short, at around three minutes. In the middle section, the rhythm of the accompanying strings underneath the melody is one that you will hear in many tangos. “The second piece, ‘Ghost Milonga II’ is written in the style of Piazzolla’s haunting, slow milongas.” You will hear a few ghostly harmonics .… “The final piece, ‘Los Compadritos,’ is a gritty and rhythmically intricate composition inspired by some of the early progenitors of the tango. A compadrito is a person of the generation whose grandfathers fought in Argentina’s war of independence from Spain ….” Also on the program will be music by Mozart, Grieg, Hindemith, Gershwin and Bartok.

Shape of things to come Amphitheater’s new covering arrives in time for summer fun Staff report Centennial Mayor Cathy Noon, city councilmembers and staff gathered the morning of May 2 for a “topping-off” ceremony to mark the near-conclusion of improvements at Centennial Center Park’s amphitheater. Steel trusses were put in place — but not before being signed by the mayor and councilmembers — to facilitate the amphitheater’s new covering. On June 7, the city will kick off summer and celebrate the amphitheater’s upgrades with a free concert featuring Eagles tribute band “The Long Run,” as well as additional music acts, children’s activities and food trucks. Many more events will follow

throughout the summer, and the new stage covering is expected to rain-proof performances. Overall, more than $1 million in improvements to the 11-acre park, which opened in 2012, are expected to soon be completed. In addition to the stage covering, they include: • Electrical enhancements at the amphitheater that are expected to help attract professional performers. • Construction of a “loading pathway” to the amphitheater for performers. • New shade structures. • A picnic shelter at the south end of the park. The park is located on the north side of Arapahoe Road, between South Revere Parkway and South Vaughn Street. For more information, go to www.centennialco.gov/Open-Space-Parks/centennialcenter-park.aspx.

LIONS EDGE HUSKIES IN LACROSSE

Littleton posts 14-13 win on sophomore’s overtime goal By Tom Munds

tmunds@coloradocommunitymedia.com Desire to win and team pride created a playoff-like atmosphere May 1 as Littleton won a competitive boys lacrosse matchup 14-13 in overtime. Both teams came into the game with 5-7 overall records and no postseason hopes, but each played with intensity from the opening faceoff until the overtime goal that decided the game. “It was an exciting and fun lacrosse game,” said Douglas County coach Greg Murray. “Both teams definitely wanted to win. The game went back and forth and both goalies made some amazing saves. This probably was the best we have played all season.” Littleton coach Brad Todd had similar sentiments in regard to his team. “This was a battle of two evenly matched teams. Both teams wanted to win this one,” he said. “Today was our last home game so we honored our seniors and winning this game today gives them a great lacrosse memory of their high school days.” The action began quickly as Littleton scored a pair of goals but the score was tied 2-2 halfway through the first period. Plays drew cheers from fans and teammates as Lion and Huskie players battled for possession of every ball. Often the battles were very physical. Players from both teams used checks to push the opponent away from the ball and the clashes often sent one or more players to the turf. Littleton held a 6-3 advantage at the end of the first period but the Huskies battled back and the Lions advantage was only 7-5 at halftime. Douglas County scored the first two goals of the third period to tie the score at 7-7. The tempo picked up and the game became a seesaw battle. One team would score and, almost immediately, the other team would take possession of the ball, mount an attack and tie the score.

Littleton’s Tyler Hobert (7) fends off a check by Douglas County defenseman Tyler Vier during the May 1 Continental League lacrosse game. The game between the two evenlymatched teams was decided in overtime by Donovan Crabtree’s goal as the Lions won, 14-13. Photos by Tom Munds Littleton held a 10-9 edge going into the final period and the score was tied 12-12 with four minutes remaining on the clock. Douglas County’s Stephan Wade scored to give the Huskies a 13-12 advantage but, with 2:33 left, Joe Timm scored on an assist from Josh Barrow to tie the score at 13. Goalies and defenders turned back threats from both sides and regulation ended tied 13-13 as the two teams prepared for overtime. With 1:24 left in the four-minute overtime period, Donovan Crabtree broke inside and scored the winning goal for Littleton. “My teammate and I broke in toward the goal, the defender went in after him, he got the ball and I took the shot … and it went in,” the sophomore said afterward. “It is a great feeling to get this one for our seniors.”

Cutthroats duel with reigning champs Denver’s ‘other’ hockey team in President’s Cup Finals By Daniel Williams

dwilliams@coloradocommunitymedia.com Colorado’s hockey team is playing for the championship. No, not those guys, the Denver Cutthroats, who are right in the middle of the President’s Cup Finals against the reigning champion Allen Americans. After the Cutthroats and the Americans split the first two games of the Central Hockey League series at the Denver Coliseum, the action was bound for Texas where the teams will play games 3, 4 and 5. (Results of games in Texas were not available before press time.) If necessary, game 6 and game 7 will be played back in Denver, and considering how the series opened with had two dramatic games — one with a spectacular individual effort and the next with a double overtime finish — it could go the distance. Game 1 of the series featured an outstanding performance from A.J. Gale, who scored a Finals’ record four goals, helping the Avalanche minor league affiliates hold off the Americans (Dallas Stars organization) for a 5-4 victory May 2 at the Denver Coliseum. Denver took a 3-0 lead early in the second period before Allen managed to tie the game up 3-3. Gale then scored two third-period goals, and the Cutthroats were able to hold off the Americans. Game 2 was a different story, as Allen beat Denver 5-4 in overtime at the Coliseum. The Americans were the ones in front early in Game 2, up 2 goals to none. But the Cutthroats, without Gale, came charging back to take a 3-2 lead. Gale, who not only had four goals in Game 1, but seven in his previous two games, was injured early in the action and never returned. Gale was checked into the boards in the

Head coach Derek Armstrong said Gale sustained a lower body injury and was hospitalized. No penalty was called on the hit, but give credit to the Cutthroats for finding a way to force overtime at 4-4. The Americans cashed in just two minutes into the second overtime when Allen forward Jamie Schaafsma beat Denver goalie Kent Patterson with a beautiful shot up top. With the series tied 1-1, Allen hosts the next three under the league’s 2-3-2 playoff system. Game 3 is scheduled for May 7.

The Lincoln Mountain Open Space area opened in southern Douglas County in summer 2013. Photo by Chris Michlewicz

A view from on high Lincoln Mountain Open Space a perch for hikers, equestrians By Chris Michlewicz

cmichlewicz @coloradocommunitymedia.com The beauty of Douglas County unfolds with each step toward the top of the Lincoln Mountain Open Space. Hikers, bikers and equestrians who reach the apex of the main bluff are treated to a 360-degree panoramic view of southern Douglas County and northern El Paso County. Pikes Peak, in all its glory, serves as the southwestern backdrop, while the rolling hills and forest near the Palmer Divide adorn the southeastern landscape. At an expansive 876 acres, Lincoln Mountain Open Space is the latest addition to the parks and trails system. It opened in summer 2013, and through word of mouth, has gained a faithful collection of regulars. Weekend mornings at the trailhead, a halfmile west of Highway 83 on Jones Road, see an increase in traffic, but only a few cars dot the parking lot on weekdays. The county acquired the initial 771-acre

property — previously known as Palmer Divide Ranch on West Cherry Creek — in 2009. An additional 105 acres comprising three 35-acre parcels, in a development known as Estates at Living Water, was purchased a year later. The total cost was $6.7 million, with some funds coming from Great Outdoors Colorado, which uses lottery proceeds for public land acquisitions. It’s a small price to pay for high-value wildlife habitat, unique geologic formations and noteworthy recreational opportunities. The spot has become especially popular among equestrians. It is leased to Praying Hands Ranch, which utilizes the property as a satellite facility for equine therapy for veterans and for adults and children with physical and emotional disabilities. A longest loop is 4.5 miles and incorporates a variety of terrain from wide-open prairie to slower-paced technical rock sections, the county’s website says. The lower loop winds through Gambel oak and Ponderosa pine. The upper loop is roughly four miles long. The open space, which closely mirrors the terrain at the Hidden Mesa Open Space north of Franktown, is open from one hour before sunrise to one hour after sunset.

Sanctuary owner tells audience about decades of animal rescues By Jane Reuter

jreuter@colorado communitymedia.com Pat Craig was just 19 when he first heard adult lions and tigers referred to as zoo surplus, and learned most were euthanized. Thirty-four years later, speaking in front of an audience at the Lone Tree Arts Center, the memory of that moment in the back of a zoo made Craig’s voice break. “I was looking at these animals; they were looking back at me,” he said. “I thought, these animals will die without somebody. I should be doing something’.” So he did. In 1980, Craig built and opened a small sanctuary on his parent’s farm near Boulder. Within a month, he heard from people seeking to place more

than 1,000 animals. “I thought saving one is better than none,” Craig said. “Pretty soon I realized I had to drop out of school. I had to work a fulltime job to feed these animals. I was up to my neck in lions, tiger and bears. It wasn’t something I ever planned on doing.” Craig now houses 330 animals — most of them large carnivores — on a 720-acre habitat near Keenesburg in Weld County, about 40 miles from downtown Denver. The Wild Animal Sanctuary is still growing, with demand far outstripping available space or funds. He rarely takes the time to share his story like he did April 21 during the talk sponsored by the Lone Tree Arts Center Guild. The reason why, he said is due to the time demands of building habitats, rescuing animals, pushing for stricter exotic animal legislation and running the sanctuary. The nonprofit features a 4,800-footlong elevated walkway that extends over the animals’ habitats, allowing them to ob-

At right, two of the dozens of black bears that live at the Wild Animal Sanctuary take a play break to survey their surroundings. Center, these two grizzly bears, among 300 animals abandoned in Texas, cool off in a pool at the Wild Animal Sanctuary. Below, a pair of tigers lounge in the late April sun at the Wild Animal Sanctuary near Keenesburg. Photos by Jane Reuter

serve grizzly and black bears, African lions, tigers, wolves and other animals housed there. Admission is $15 for adults, and $7.50 for children. “There’s no other facility in the country like it,” Craig said. “You really can’t draw from your experiences going to a wildlife park or zoo.” A total of 137 volunteers and a few paid staff help Craig run the sanctuary. Craig said the proliferation of unwanted exotic animals extends from several sources, including the entertainment industry. Longtime Las Vegas entertainers Siegfried and Roy, whose act ended when Roy was injured by a tiger in 2003, contributed to the issue Craig works to counteract. Because they needed young animals willing to perform stage tricks, “they would breed up to seven tigers a year to find enough babies to have understudies. The audience had no clue the tigers were rotating in and out of this show like crazy; they all had the same name.” The tiger that injured Roy was the 25th

named Montecore. Craig and his team have rescued big cats from basements, back yards, barns and crawl spaces. Most have never lived outside of a cage or sharply confined space and require a gradual transition to the large, grassy multi-acre pens that make up most of his property. The animals are spayed or neutered upon their move to the sanctuary. “We take away the main things they argue about in the wild, so they’re very social,” Craig said. “They love to play together.” The animals eat 20,000 pounds of food each week, much of it donated by Front Range Wal-Mart stores, Craig said. The demand for rescues is endless, he said. “This year, we’re going to have to find the funding to go out and buy more land or we won’t be able to house any more animals,” he said.
