Greatest Generation gathers to remember Stories of D-Day abound on the 70th anniversary By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@coloradocommunitymedia.com Seventy years ago, Doug Watts was a 16-year-old kid with a gun. “It was tough,” said the Littleton resident. “But you can hang on by your thumbs and get used to it.” Watts signed up for World War II, with his parents’ blessings, partly because it’s just what guys did back then, but also to help out his single mom financially. “It was the thing to do in those days,” he said. “Everybody was joining the military because they wanted to do their part.” Today, he’s one of the less than a million WWII veterans left alive to tell its tales.

He and others visited the Littleton WWII Memorial June 7 to do just that during the city’s observance of the 70th anniversary of D-Day, when American troops poured out of planes onto the beaches of Normandy on their way to liberate Europe from the Nazis. A handful of veterans in attendance lived through that day, though 10 Coloradans left their lives on that beach, said Rick Crandall, a KEZW deejay and president of the Colorado Freedom Memorial Foundation. “These were teenagers,” said Crandall. “You were all young, seeing and doing and being what people who are 16 shouldn’t and wouldn’t normally be a part of.” From 1941-46, 16 million Americans served in uniform. Of those, 407,000 were lost, 3,600 of them from Colorado. D-Day continues on Page 13

Of fires and old flames LFR’s first truck turns 100 thanks to TLC By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@coloradocommunitymedia.com She leaks and rattles a lot, but she still gets around pretty well, and she proved it June 4 by visiting her childhood home to celebrate her 100th birthday. The journey did, however, require a lot of backbreaking work on the part of Capt. Mark Gorman, with Littleton Fire Rescue. “She’s as cold as a mother-in-law’s kiss,” he said, tossing a glare at her over his shoulder. Regardless, theirs is a 36-year-long love story like no other. “She” is the fire department’s 1914 Federal chemical truck, the city’s first POSTAL ADDRESS

fire truck. The department, then allvolunteer and known as Littleton Hose Company, bought her brand-new. They brought her home to Town Hall, 2450 W. Main St., or rather the old version of it. The current building wasn’t built until 1920, and the fire department was where the lobby is now. The Federal lived there until 1977, when Littleton Center was built and Station 11 moved in. She remains there today, though mostly as window dressing. She gets out only for the annual fire muster, on June 14 this year, and the Western Welcome Week Grand Parade, Aug. 16. Gorman will be with her at each event, and will tell anyone who asks every detail about his pride and joy. “I like the history,” he said. “It’s been around for a long time, and there are people who served this city and district on this truck. This is a fine remembrance

of their dedication and sacrifice.” The visit to Town Hall was a special outing to re-create a historic photo of the Federal sitting outside the westernmost archway. Members of the Historic Downtown Littleton Merchants helped her celebrate, snapping selfies with the local celebrity and enjoying rides around the block. But to accomplish it all, Gorman had to get her cranked up — literally. He said the first time he takes her out each year, it takes about an hour and a half of hard physical labor, with his thumb and collarbone at risk of severe injury the whole time. The second time, he said, it’s only about an hour. “I’ll be sore for a week or so,” he said. “You have to do it just a certain way. It’s a

The public’s last chance to weigh in on whether Littleton City Council should approve retail marijuana sales in the city is set for July 1, now that the body has narrowly passed an ordinance on first reading to ban the practice. On June 3, staff presented council with a choice of two ordinances to move forward, one banning sales and one permitting them. Councilmember Randy Stein made a motion to approve the former, and Mayor Pro Tem Bruce Beckman and Councilmembers Bruce Stahlman and Debbie Brinkman agreed. That sends it on to second and final reading, prior to which there will be a public hearing. Councilmembers Peggy Cole and Jerry Valdes have been fairly upfront throughout the months-long discussion that they support retail sales, and voted against the ordinance. Mayor Phil Cernanec, who has remained mostly silent on the topic, joined them, making the final vote 4-3. Waiting in the wings for the outcome are the owners of CannaMart, who are threatening to get the issue in front of the voters if council passes the ban. “My client’s position is that the city should adopt some sort of recreational Pot continues on Page 14

Lps kicks off bond projects With kids out for summer, much work to be done By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@coloradocommunitymedia.com School’s out for the summer, but the hard work is just getting started. “This is going to make Littleton’s learning environment better for kids, a warmer place,” said Littleton Public Schools Superintendent Scott Murphy, speaking literally and figuratively. He was standing in front of the doors of Littleton High School’s original boiler on June 9, celebrating with other district representatives the infrastructure projects that will happen throughout the district while the kids are away. The minivan-size boiler has become the symbol for the district’s aging facilities, with an average age of 50 years. It will be replaced with something closer to the size of a refrigerator, much more efficient and that parts are still available for. Residents in the LPS district passed the $80 million bond issue by about 60 percent of the vote last November, and the revenue can legally only be used for capital improvements like building maintenance and infrastructure.

“When a lot of the work goes on behind the walls, it’s hard for the public to know the their money is being spent,” said LPS Board President Lucie Stanish. In an effort to keep people up to day, the district will place signs in front of buildings that describe what work is being done and provide a phone number and website where people can get more information. Bob Colwell, former LPS Board of Education president, is heading up a citizens’ oversight committee, with volunteers recruited from the district’s various committees. And longtime LPS volunteer Dave Metcalf, a planner by trade, will again coordinate with the project team as he did in 1995 and 2002. Because of the age of the buildings, Doney said there is a large budget for asbestos abatement, which will be performed when there are no students inside. Most of the asbestos is in the glue that holds tiles to floors and ceilings, she said. Some of the work, like a new elevator at Newton Middle School, will bring the district into compliance with ADA requirements updated since 2002. Other items will help LPS meet various other federal regulations — technology upgrades to accommodate online testing and new lunch-service tables to meet nutrition standards, for example. Other improvements throughout the

Photo by Jennifer Smith district include HVAC, flooring, fire systems, roofing, repairs, plumbing, grounds repairs, lighting, electrical and ADA compliance. All work is expected to be done by August 2017.

“This is very much about maintaining our facilities,” said Diane Leiker, LPS communications director. “A lot of work will be done, but you might not see it. It might not look that different, but it really is improving the life of our schools.”

Car lovers gather for a good cause Concours d’Elegance show benefits those with disabilities By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@coloradocommunitymedia.com A panel of veteran car enthusiasts waxed nostalgic during a special evening that heralded the arrival of this year’s Colorado Concours d’Elegance & Exotic Sports Car Show, held June 8 at Arapahoe Community College. The Friday prior to the main event, guest judges Dennis Little, Jim Stranberg and Denise McCluggage visited Audi Denver on South Broadway for a reception in their honor. “It’s a lot of work, but it gives younger people an opportunity to get involved, and maybe see things they’ve never seen before,” Dennis Little, president of the Santa Fe Concorso, said of concourse events in general. Little spent 30 years as a designer with General Motors. “It was a dream job. Most of the time when it was quitting time, you didn’t ever want to go home,” he said. Much of the conversation focused on the preservation vs. restoration debate brought into the spotlight in January, when a barn car brought in about $500,000 more than its restored counterpart at the Gooding & Co. auction in Scottsdale, Ariz. The clunker 1956 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing Coupe: sold for $1.9 million, while its pristine twin brought $1.4 million. Stephen Bell, owner of Classic Investments, said from the audience that he doesn’t think every car needs to be restored, and as the number of cars available to restore decline, the price of barn cars will continue to rise. “I think a preservation car will win Pebble Beach within five years,” he said, referring to the granddaddy of all concourse

events in California. But Little said restoration honors the history of the car. “I think you should take it back to the pristine condition that the proud new owner drove it out of the dealership in,” he said. “It doesn’t make any sense to me whatsoever,” agreed Stranberg. “There’s maybe a reason for keeping it that way if it’s all original or if you have a really good car. … But a car that’s just falling apart like that Mercedes, it needs to be restored.” Stranberg has spent most of his career since 1974 specializing in restoring Bugattis, originally a French manufacturer but now owned by Volkswagen. “It’s a thing of beauty. It’s a rolling piece of art,” said Stranberg. McCluggage, a founding editor of AutoWeek magazine, joked that she thought she herself would be a candidate for preservation, but it turned out she needed a total restoration. No wonder, given her life of adventure as a race-car driver, skier and sports journalist. McCluggage won best in her class and 10th overall at Florida’s Sebring International Raceway in 1961, when lots of tracks banned women. But she was determined to impress her new friend, jazz singer Allen Eager, who she met skiing. When he said he’d always wanted to be a race-car driver, she sold her Porsche and bought a Ferrari, and off they went. “I was into fulfilling men’s fantasies insofar as I was able,” she said. … “I looked at him cowering in the corner, and he said, `You’re trying to kill me.’ Well, I wasn’t. Not then, but later.” When the pair was asked what they would do to top that feat, McCluggage said that Eager replied, “I’m going to teach her to play the saxophone, and her first gig is Carnegie Hall.” Her comment on the preservation debate could well be said about herself. “It’s rather moving to see something that has managed to survive its rather rough life well,” she said.

Chili for children, anyone? The south metro chapter of the Association of Volunteers for Children’s Hospital Colorado will host a chili cook-off June 21 to benefit the new south campus. The chapter provides volunteers to help with fundraising for the Aurora and Highlands Ranch locations. The cook-off is the first major fundraiser for this chapter and, according to volunteer organizer Helen Lenda, the funds will be distributed at its discretion. Fundraising organizations for Children’s Hospital Colorado are able to determine where to allocate their support, based on the hospital’s expressed needs. The chili cook-off will have four categories, three sanctioned by the International Chili Society and one for amateur cooks. The amateur division is open to anyone, and those interested in registering should contact the chapter as soon as possible at chcchilicookoff@gmail.com in order to sign up and receive further instructions. The cooking will begin at 9:30 a.m. and attendees will be able to purchase 50-cent sam-

ples of the chili entrants from 1-2:30 p.m. The ICS categories include salsa, chili verde and red chili. There will also be a prize awarded for best showmanship that will be given to the best-decorated booth. The event is geared around children and will feature several activities, including tortilla Frisbee. And as Rocky Mountain HarleyDavidson and Rocky Mountain Harley Owners Group are among the underwriters of the event, children will also be able to climb up on the motorcycles and have their picture taken. Food vendors from the local community will be present and there will also be an extensive silent auction, with prizes ranging from a child’s birthday party to four airline tickets to a chef’s table dinner. Other prizes include a custom made T-shirt quilt, various gift baskets and tickets to attractions throughout the Denver area. Giveaways will take place throughout the event. The chili cook-off opens to the public at 11 a.m. on the grounds of the south campus, 1811 Plaza Drive in Highlands Ranch. Kids’ activities will begin running at noon and awards will be given at 4 p.m. Admission is free. The event is sponsored by Beacon Communications, Ed Bozarth Chevrolet, Jammin’ DJ’s, Rock Mountain Harley-Davidson, Rocky Mountain Harley Owners Group, Saunders Construction and Senior Services of Illinois.

Charter school application planned TriCity Academy to contact Englewood, Littleton, Sheridan By Tom Munds

tmunds @coloradocommunitymedia.com The TriCity Academy application team announced plans to submit a request for a charter to the Englewood, Littleton and Sheridan school districts by Aug. 1. “We plan to apply to all three districts for a charter and we will locate in the district that grants us the charter,” said team spokeswoman Denise Munn. “No matter where we locate, one of our charter school’s goal is to serve families in Englewood, Littleton and Sheridan.” Munn said the application team is in the process of sending letters of intent to all three districts. The team is made up of a variety of members with educational expertise, as well as Arapahoe County Commissioner Nancy Doty, Englewood City Councilmember Rick Gillit and Littleton Mayor Phil Cernanec. Those seeking to establish TriCity Academy hope to open the charter school — a free public school of choice — in August 2015. There are currently charter schools in Littleton but none in Sheridan or Englewood. State rules require the application for a charter to be submitted by Aug. 1. The school district then reviews the proposal and is required to make the decision whether or not to grant the charter within 90 days. Munn said the application team is working with Delta Schools, a newly formed nonprofit “incubation” organization that helps

charter school get established. Munn serves as the president of Delta Schools. Gillit said that plans call for TriCity Academy to use the Core Knowledge-based curriculum when it opens. “(We’d like) to open with about 400 students in kindergarten through fifth grade,” he said. “The plan is to grow and add one grade each year until, after three years, the school will serve about 800 students in kindergarten through eighth grade.” Munn said that once a charter is granted for TriCity Academy, Delta Schools will work with a real-estate partner to evaluate possible locations in that district for the school. “TriCity Academy wants to be a partner with the school districts, offering families in Englewood, Littleton and Sheridan an alternative to sending their children to traditional public schools,” she said. “We plan to offer breakfast and lunch programs, plus either contract with one of the districts or set up our own facilities to provide services for special needs students.” Gillit said he joined the advisory team because he has always supported education and because he believes in charter schools. “Traditional public school isn’t a good fit for every student,” he said. “TriCity Academy will offer an option as a school of choice. I support the idea because I believe the academy can help families stay in Englewood who might otherwise decide to move so their children can attend a different school district.” He said there has been local interest in the charter school already, and he is under the understanding that about 100 parents have submitted letters of intent to enroll their children in TriCity Academy when it opens.

republican gubernatorial candidates

Kopp hopes vision pays off with voters

Beauprez comes back for second chance

By Vic Vela

By Vic Vela

vvela@coloradocommunitymedia.com It makes sense for a guy with the least amount of name recognition among a crowded field of Republican candidates for governor to spend time with Coloradans whom he believes have been considered an afterthought. Recently, Mike Kopp kicked off a sixday bike tour called “We are Colorado.” The tour covered 436 miles across the state and focused on places that aren’t called Denver or Boulder. Rather, Kopp rode around and talked to folks in places like Lamar and Holly. “It’s a reflection of the fact that so many people around the state feel like they’re forgotten,” Kopp, Kopp a resident of the Golden area, said in a recent interview. “It’s the elites in the city, and in Washington and on the East Coast, who make the decisions for them, and they’re the ones left picking up the pieces for big government decisions.” Kopp believes that Democratic-led policies — particularly gun-control legislation and renewable energy mandates on rural electric cooperatives — have angered those who live in lightly populated parts of the state. “The sentiment out there is largely that you’ve got a party in Denver and the Democrats seem to pay more heed to Barack Obama and Michael Bloomberg as opposed to the values of our own state,” Kopp said.

Kopp believes his message will resonate with Republican voters, who on June 24 will select their preferred candidate to match up against Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper this fall. Kopp is a former state Senate minority leader, having represented Senate District 22 from 2007 through 2011, when he resigned after his wife, Kimberly, died of cancer. He has since remarried. Prior to holding office, Kopp served in the Gulf War as an Army Ranger. In April, Republican state assembly-goers gave Kopp the top line on the GOP primary ballot. That surprised many political observers, seeing as how Kopp’s name isn’t as well-known as his three opponents: Tom Tancredo, Bob Beauprez and Scott Gessler. But name recognition doesn’t matter to Kopp. “I’d certainly put my record up against any of my opponents in this race in that regard,” he said. Kopp is a “firm believer” in hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking,” saying that the ownership of mineral resources is “a sacred right.” “So we now have a bunch of ballot initiatives out there that would make it more difficult, if not impossible, for energy producers to get this property that they own,” Kopp said. On education issues, Kopp, who served on the state Senate Education Committee, said that students are not being tested properly. Kopp continues on Page 6

`Honey badger’ fights for nomination

Tancredo proud that he’s not right in step

By Vic Vela

By Vic Vela

vvela@coloradocommunitymedia.com Scott Gessler is proud to be nicknamed after a ferocious weasel. A few years ago, Democrats started calling the Republican secretary of state the “honey badger,” stemming from a viral YouTube video about the tenacious African mammal. The video’s narrator says that the honey badger always gets what it wants and “has no regard for any other animal, whatsoever.” Gessler — a Denver resident who is often at odds with Gov. John Hickenlooper and other Democratic officeholders — wears the honey badger moniker Gessler as a badge of honor. “Because I stand up on principle and people aren’t used to seeing that,” Gessler said in a recent interview. Gessler hopes that Republican primary voters will reward his work as secretary of state and his fighting personality when they head to the polls to select their nominee for governor on June 24. And he believes he’s the right candidate

for Republicans to put up against the incumbent Hickenlooper. “Look at Hickenlooper,” Gessler said. “He says he’s a moderate, that’s what he claims. And yet he signs the most liberal agenda in the history of Colorado.” Democrats see Gessler as an easy target for attacks in a general election, mainly over his ethics concerns. Last year, the Colorado Independent Ethics Commission found that Gessler violated state rules for spending about $2,000 of state money for attending a Republican event in Florida. “The ethics commission is fundamentally corrupt,” said Gessler, dismissing the claims against him. Gessler believes that the commission is made up of Hickenlooper-friendly appointees who pick on Republicans while going easy on Democrats. Gessler’s work as secretary of state has also received criticism. Gessler was accused of disenfranchising minority voters when his office sent letters to Gessler continues on Page 6

nomically. “Fracking isn’t as complicated if you let science guide the policy ... not myths and hyperbole and a social agenda,” he said. That viewpoint is at odds with residents of his hometown of Lafayette, the majority of whom voted to support a citywide fracking ban in 2012. “This isn’t the first time we’ve voted based on emotion and that’s what this is,” he said of communities that have placed moratoriums on the practice. On education, Beauprez, like other Republican candidates, believes that parents should have more choices

He said that assessment tests miss the point when they evaluate the results after the school year, after the student has already moved on to the next grade. Kopp said it would be better practice to provide teachers and students with “real-time information on a child’s academic trajectory,” so adjustments can be made during the school year. Kopp also wants to give school districts more flexibility in deciding how teachers are paid and kept. “There is no grater factor in education than the

available as to where they send their kids to school. He also believes that there should be property tax relief for parents who teach their children from home. And, if elected governor, Beauprez said his wife Claudia will head an initiative that would provide books to parents after children are born so they “can read to a child before they get to school.” Beauprez is particularly concerned about reading scores among schoolchildren in Colorado and believes that the education system needs to be reformed. “Do we want to fund education? Sure, everybody does,” he said. “But the problem is, we keep saying it’s for the children yet we keep failing the children. And when is somebody going to say enough?” Like other Republicans, Beauprez is pro-death penalty and believes that Hickenlooper made a mistake last year by not going forward with the execution of Nathan Dunlap — the man who killed four people at an Aurora

Chuck E. Cheese’s restaurant in 1993. Beauprez, coming from a business background, believes that government rules are harming businesses and, if elected, would work “to get anti-business regulations of our books.” Beauprez understands that Democrats have a demographic advantage at the state level. The majority of women and minorities — especially a growing Latino voter base — have rejected Republican policies during recent statewide elections. But Beauprez believes such loyalty “hasn’t paid off.” “And I’m looking forward to taking the fight to a Democratic incumbent governor and calling him on that and offering a better solution, better leadership,” he said. “Opportunity in this country was never just reserved for the precious few. It was supposed to be opportunity for everybody ...”

quality of the teacher and I think it’s critical that our policy reflects an ability to pay excellent teachers more money,” he said. “And we should have the ability to fire teachers that are failing the kids.” Kopp is also highly critical of Hickenlooper’s decision to grant a temporary reprieve for Nathan Dunlap, a death row inmate who killed four people at a Chuck E. Cheese’s restaurant in 1993. “This is just kind of typical of the way the governor tries to handle these sticky issues, by creating a new, gray scale,” Kopp said. “The governor should have made a decision. I would have set the execution date.” Kopp holds conservative views on many issues, including abortion. He is an unapologetic pro-life Republican. But, while that may work to his advantage in a Re-

publican primary, recent general elections have shown that when reproductive rights are made a key issue in a campaign, Republicans fall short. But Kopp said his message is bigger than just one issue. “It’s funny because the Democrats have had the same sort of playbook year after year,” he said. “It’s something they tried a lot on me in 2006. I made the main theme in my race the idea of fighting Washington, defending freedoms and empowering people. “I have a very high regard for life and embracing life, but the bigger issue is what you offer to our state that helps the greatest amount of people, and that’s what my campaign has been about.”

some registered voters to show proof of their citizenship. He also wants Colorado to adopt a policy that requires voters to show photo ID. Gessler becomes particularly annoyed when people accuse him of being obsessed with voter fraud, in spite of evidence that it doesn’t occur very often. “I grew up in Chicago, so don’t tell me it’s overblown,” Gessler said. “Yes, I know, in Colorado we are so pure it can never happen here. I’ve got all those arguments. We are just so pure in Colorado. We are superior human beings than anywhere else and nothing wrong can ever happen in Colorado. That’s bull----. That’s bull----. The fact of the matter is we are human beings just like everywhere else and we have a capacity for good and evil just like anyone else.” Gessler took over as secretary of state in 2010 after defeating Democratic incumbent Bernie Buescher. He touts that he is the only Republican running for governor who has won a statewide race. And lately, his electability argument is being backed by money. Gessler has outraised his GOP rivals for two consecutive fundraising periods. On the issues, Gessler “understands people’s con-

stands the concerns among certain communities that would like more control over drilling that occurs in their towns. Tancredo used his support of legalized marijuana as example of that balance. “I supported Amendment 64, and one of the reasons I did so was the fact that it provided local control,” he said. “Local communities have a right to say no to establishments if they want. I have that same sort of gutlevel reaction to this fracking thing. I can support fracking, but I can also support local control, depending on how it looks, how it’s framed.” Tancredo holds the same philosophy when it comes to education. Tancredo, who worked in the U.S. Department of Education during the administrations of Presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush, doesn’t believe in a cookie-cutter, one-size-fits-all approach to teaching kids. “The idea of one kind of system, no matter how wellintentioned the people who are in it … the idea that that system can accommodate all the kids in the state is a misinterpretation of the phenomena of education,” he said. Tancredo doesn’t like much of what Hickenlooper has done in office. But he was especially angered by the governor’s decision to grant a temporary reprieve to Nathan Dunlap, a death row inmate who killed four people at an Aurora Chuck E. Cheese’s restaurant in 1993. Tancredo entered the governor’s race after Hickenlooper’s decision, which neither commuted nor went forward with Dunlap’s execution. “I just wish that whatever he did was based on some heartfelt and well-thought-out position on it, based on, I don’t know, whatever,” Tancredo said. “To say I don’t know what good it would be (to execute Dunlap) ... I think that does not speak well of his integrity.”

cerns” over hydraulic fracturing, known as “fracking,” but supports the practice, saying, “if we didn’t have oil and gas in Colorado, we’d be dead in the water.” On education, Gessler would like to see more school districts adopt pay-for-performance models for teachers — a controversial method that has been taken up by the school board in Douglas County. And Gessler would like to see students have more choices in the schools they wish to attend. “When you do have that competition among schools and they have to attract students through excellence, rather than geography, that helps a lot,” he said. Gessler believes that gun-control legislation that was put in place by the Democratic majority last year “is a lot of money and lot of expense for very little benefit.” In true “honey badger” style, Gessler isn’t afraid to take on fellow Republicans. He believes that selecting Tom Tancredo as the GOP nominee would “spell disaster” for the party. And he recently came out with a TV ad that warns voters against picking candidates like Tancredo and Bob Beauprez, who have lost gubernatorial bids in the past. Gessler believes his personality and his tenacity will pay off. “I’m honest about who I am and what I’m about and I explain my principles and I don’t back down,” he said. But the issue Tancredo is known for here and at the national level is illegal immigration. Tancredo is a hardliner on this issue and some of positions — such as his support for erecting a fence along the Mexican border — concerns some GOP members who worry that the party is already in trouble with Latino voters. In a recent op-ed in the Colorado Springs Gazette, Secretary of State Scott Gessler, who is also running for governor, said that a Tancredo nomination “spells disaster for Colorado Republicans.” And a Gazette editorial called on Gessler and Mike Kopp to drop out of the race to make it easier for former Congressman Bob Beauprez to defeat Tancredo. Tancredo believes that those fears are misplaced. And his views on illegal immigration haven’t changed, regardless of the fact that Latinos are growing in electoral strength. “A Republican candidate, any Republican candidate, no matter how pro-amnesty or moderate they are on the issue, however you want to describe it, will get about 35 percent of the Hispanic vote. That’s it,” Tancredo said. “It doesn’t change whether it’s John McCain or Tom Tancredo. “I assure you this, that if all those folks who are coming across that southern border were coming in here and voting Republican, there’d be a wall on that southern border 2,500 feet high with broken glass on the top. Because the issue is political. It’s political, but it’s not racial. That’s the thing that’s important. There’s nothing, absolutely nothing about this issue that has anything to do with race. It is geographic and economic.” Tancredo is not a run-of-the-mill Republican - and that’s exactly why he believes he’s the best guy win back the governor’s mansion for his party. “The only reason why I’m doing this is because I think I can win because I am not the typical Republican candidate,” Tancredo said. “If you run a traditional candidate and a traditional campaign, you will have a traditional outcome — and that is we lose.”

opinions / yours and ours

Earning trust begins with love Have you ever tried to take away a food bowl from an eating dog? If you do not have a relationship with that dog built on love and trust, anyone who has attempted this can surely share their pain and probably even show you the bite scars left behind as a lesson that was probably never forgotten or repeated. As most of you know by now, I typically write this column each week based on a recent event or observation. Well, my above-mentioned reference came from a personal experience with my own dogs yesterday. With the thunderstorms and hailstorms I had gotten delayed and tied up away from home longer than anticipated. So by the time I had arrived home to feed my little guys, they were starving for sure. I filled and placed their bowls into their familiar spots and they hungrily started devouring their food. They were so ravenous that they soon pushed their partially eaten bowls under the counter and were trying to eat with their heads tilted sideways to reach their meals. Without hesitating I leaned over and gently pulled their bowls out from under the counter, they never missed a bite,

never growled or snarled, and I could swear I caught a little thankful glance from both puppies as they comfortably continued eating. Now I know many of you reading this have dogs and love them dearly, and you receive that same love in return with every walk, cuddle, lick, and shared meals and snacks. But I also know many people, myself included, who have made the mistake of petting a dog, taking away food, or moving too fast only to be bitten. I actually had a hungry German shepherd take a bite out of my cheek once as I was eating a cupcake; apparently he liked chocolate cake and vanilla frosting, too, and silly me for not sharing. As I thought about my own dogs,

though, I was reminded that earning trust, building trust, and maintaining trust takes time and commitment. I have had my dogs for more than four years and have loved on them and spoiled them just like many of you do with your own pets. And then I thought about it a little deeper — what about my family and friends? Have I put in that same level of effort of spoiling and loving on them to earn and build that trust? And yes, loving on them to build that trust could include some “tough love” to avoid one-sided love or one-sided commitments. I am reminded of the old question, “How often should we tell our spouse we love them?” Many people try and answer this in several ways, “Every day,” “As often as you can,” “Ten times a day,” and other very close guesses. The real answer is this, “Before someone else does!” Well what about our other family members and close friends, how often should we tell them we love them? How about our customers, how often should we tell them we love them? And what about our employees and even employers, would it make sense to ask ourselves how often we should tell them we love

them? And the answer to all of the above is, “Before someone else does.” There are many ways to earn, build and maintain trust, like consistent and honest communication, respect, gratitude and appreciation, and so many more. And there are certainly too many more to cover in one brief column. But love, mutual love, demonstration of love, unconditional love, appreciation of love, and pure love would be an awesome place to start as we look to earn, build and maintain trust. It will also provide us with some protection from small bites and big bites, as we may have to move that proverbial bowl of food from time to time from someone very close to us, whether they are the four-legged kind or human. I would love to hear your “tail” or “tale” of love and trust at gotonorton@ gmail.com. And as we fill our days with both, it really will be a better than good week.

Father’s Day gives formality to banality Father’s Day is Sunday, June 15. Or is it? I guess if you need to have someone tell you when to honor your father, then Father’s Day is Sunday, June 15, from midnight to midnight. My father and I had an agreement: No gifts. But I always called. Of course, I called him every weekend for the last 20 years of his life, so Father’s Day wasn’t any different. When I was a kid, I fell in line and gave him Old Spice after-shave in those beautiful little off-white bottles. That ended when I turned 13, and we both decided to discontinue Father’s Day gift-giving. What are you going to give someone who has given you everything? At least we have an artist to thank for Father’s Day. Her name was Sonora Dodd, and she came up with the idea at the YMCA in Spokane, Wash., in 1910. I’m not sure what she was doing in a YMCA. I know you can get yourself clean there, and have a good meal there. Dodd simply wanted to follow the success of Mother’s Day with a day for

another family member. She ruled out Uncle’s Day and Stepsister’s Day. The idea got off to a slow start, with low acceptance, and Dodd went off to the Art Institute in Chicago. She returned to Spokane after graduating and renewed her efforts to raise awareness about her project. It wasn’t until 1966 that it became enacted, by Lyndon Baines Johnson, in a proclamation celebrating fathers. The third Sunday in June was chosen. Dodd lived long enough to see it happen. She died in 1978. My own father was a beauty. I have written about him before. We exchanged unanticipated gifts all of the time.

We had a gift-giving family. But giftgiving was limited or nonexistent on designated holidays, including Christmas. Mom and Dad would check out of a hotel, and the desk clerk would say, “It’s been paid for, by your son,” or “It’s been paid for, by your daughter.” A waiter would come to their table and say, “It’s been paid for, by your son.” Dad went to Home Depot to pay for their new vertical blinds, and was told, “It’s been paid for by your son and your daughter.” I could never have done that in the Old Spice days. It took months to save up enough money to buy a bottle. One time I boarded an airplane in Johnson City, Tenn., and the flight attendant said, “Your father upgraded you to first class.” When it comes to fathers, I was one of the lucky ones. Unfortunately, not every father is like mine. Some fathers abandon, neglect, abuse or molest. Is there anything worse than having an abusive parent?

Father’s Day has never been as successful as Mother’s Day, as a day of commerce. Restaurants are packed on Mother’s Day. Insipid greeting cards fly off the shelves. Children promise to dust, or to bring mom breakfast in bed. My father had his hands full — with me. If you have been a reader, you know by now that things bother me. Lots of things. Lots of things started to bother me at an early age. My father never tried to change my behavior. What kind of a miracle is that? He never told me to conform or to believe what he believed. Some fathers think they know exactly what is best. Robert Young didn’t even know what was best. The “Father Knows Best” actor suffered from depression and alcoholism, and he attempted suicide in 1991. Anyway, happy Father’s Day, June 15, 16, 17 and 18.

CU seeks ideas from businesses School opening campus in south metro area By Jane Reuter

jreuter@coloradocommunitymedia.com University of Colorado officials want to hear from south metro businesses about what they’d like to see offered at the school’s future hub. CU will begin offering classes and labs on the second floor and in the basement of Parker’s Wildlife Experience this fall. While those classes are set, future possibilities remain open. “We’re just starting,” Don Elliman, chancellor of the CU-Denver and Anschutz Medical campuses, said at the June 5 Denver South Economic Development Partnership breakfast. “We have no idea other than the fact that we’re committed to build these programs exactly what direction we’re going to go in. I look at that as a positive and not a negative. “We want to have your counsel and advice in designing program that meet your needs,” he said. “We’re here to meet your needs, not the other way around. Our goal is to partner with you to build programs that benefit you (and) your labor force.” Except for the nursing courses, classes will be held at night. The museum will continue its normal daytime operations.

Fall offerings include a range of undergraduate and graduate-level courses in business, addiction counseling, computer forensics, nursing and engineering. Fields of study were based on the industries most represented in Douglas and Arapahoe counties. Construction is under way to convert more than 7,400 square feet of exhibit space on the museum’s second floor to two 48-seat classrooms and a large computer lab, and to turn nearly 4,000 square feet in the basement into a simulation lab for nursing students. The 23 nursing program slots already were filled three weeks after registration opened. That’s no surprise to Elliman, who said CU’s initial market study of the area’s higher-education options showed it’s underserved. “We found there appeared to be a significant demand for services south in the metro area that simply weren’t being met today,” he said. “The barrier of moving south of Hampden, which some people called the Berlin Wall, was formidable.” Elliman said CU might someday offer courses at its south campus to help those who never completed their degrees. “There are so many people who’ve gotten two to three years into a four-year degree” and never finished, he said. That’s among many options still on the table.

Governor vetoes road transparency bill By Vic Vela

vvela@coloradocommunitymedia.com A bill that sought more scrutiny of the teaming of state and privately-backed road projects has failed to make it any further than Gov. John Hickenlooper’s desk. Senate Bill 197 — a bill that would have provided greater oversight and transparency for private-public road construction partnerships — was vetoed by Hickenlooper on June 4. However, some of the bill’s intent survived. The bill — a response to grumblings over the US 36 road project process — would have required any “P3” project that exceeds 35 years to be approved by the Legislature. It also would have required a Colorado Department of Transportation board to hold public meetings throughout any road project process and keep the Leg-

National Night Out gearing up

National Night Out is a national program held annually on the first Tuesday in August, Aug. 5 this year, in which community members join forces with local police departments to promote police-community partnerships, crime prevention and neighborhood unity. Every year, the Littleton Police Department and neighbors from all around the city unite to give crime a “going-away party.” Littleton residents and business owners are encouraged to organize block parties in their own neighborhoods and business districts to strengthen neighborhood spirit, get to know the neighbors and police, and develop community partnerships with the police department. If you are interested in hosting a party in your neighborhood or would just like

islature and other local elected officials informed along the way. The $425 million, 50-year US 36 project, which will widen the lanes of the highway and incorporate toll lanes, received a great deal of criticism by local residents who felt as though the P3 contract was too secretive and that they were kept out of the loop on key parts of the project. Hickenlooper supports the part of the bill that sought greater transparency and signed an executive order that requires the state to improve “accountability, transparency and openness” of CDOT P3 projects. But the overall bill, which he said contained “unworkable provisions,” was vetoed. Hickenlooper issued a statement, saying that he took issue with parts of the bill that required legislative go-ahead for projects that exceed 35 years and other features that “inappropriately constrains the busi-

ness terms of future P3 agreements.” “These constraints on business terms would create a chilling component on future transactions, making investors unlikely or unwilling to bid on Colorado projects due to the increased risks this process would generate,” the governor said. Hickenlooper’s statement was accompanied by a list of 48 persons or local government entities that called on the governor to veto the bill, including many

business organizations. Rep. Tracy Kraft-Tharp, D-Arvada, a bill sponsor, said she was disappointed with the governor’s decision, but that the executive order means that her effort did not go for naught. “I hope we can build on the transparency piece so that we can move toward figuring out a way to figure in oversight,” she said. “We’ll work on this again. I don’t think this is a black and white issue.”

Splash Dash gets wet and wild Event is a fundraiser for Drennen’s Dream Foundation By Tom Munds

tmunds @coloradocommunitymedia.com The Arapahoe High School parking lot hummed with activity June 8 as hundreds of runners, walkers and volunteers gathered for the second annual Splash Dash to raise money for the Drennen’s Dreams Foundation. Booths supporting a variety of organizations and offering free gifts formed a midway as runners and walkers checked in and got ready to start out on the 5-kilometer course. When they returned, the band Portobello Road played classic numbers and some of their original tunes. The event was a 5k run with a twist. Runners and walkers were urged to wear funny costumes and organizers urged families living along the route to turn on sprinklers and squirt runners with the hose or set up slip-and-slides. The field moved out of the parking lot as bagpiper Collin Lewis in full Scottish attire led them to the starting line. There were those who regularly ran 5 kilometers for time, there were parents pushing strollers, groups of young athletes who ran together and even a young man on a unicycle. The Gavin family set up a slip-and-slide and a bubble machine in front of their house a couple hundred yards from the finish. Their son Kaven showed how to use the slip-and-

Bagpiper Collin Lewis leads a group of young runners and walkers to the starting line for the June 8 Splash Dash. The 5K event raised funds for Drennen’s Dream Foundation, an organization promoting swimming pool safety. Photos by Tom Munds slide and Rick Ziesen stopped his run to follow the boy’s example and go flying down the slip-and-slide atop a rubber alligator. A little further along, Rebecca and Jeff Machsko squirted runners with a hose because they said it sounded like a fun thing to do on a Sunday morning. Kendall Sova, 5, joined her father on the course. Her dad said the only stop needed on the 3.1-mile course was to remove the girls’ sweatshirt. “It was fun,” Kendall said. “I liked the hills, it was fun to see a bunny and it was fun to get a little wet.” While it was considered a fun event the Splash Dash supported a foundation promoting pool safety. “I think we have more than 550 people taking part in the event today,” Melissa O’Melia, Drennen’s mother, said as the runners crossed the finish line. “I’m not surprised by the turnout today because the community support has been unbelievable since we established the foundation.” She said the foundation was established to promote drowning prevention and pool safety in memory of her 12-year-old son who drowned in a public pool in 2010.

Runner Rick Ziesen came off the Splash Dash course to get wet as he went down the slip-and-slide. Ziesen was among more than 550 runners and walkers who took part in the June 8 event to raise funds for the Drennen’s Dream Foundation, an organization promoting swimming pool safety.

Citizens group levels criticism at LIFT City council tries to stem tide of complaints By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@coloradocommunitymedia.com Some Littleton City Council members are trying to quell an outcry from a group of their regular critics who are upset about the city ramping up its urbanrenewal authority, Littleton Invests for Tomorrow, known as LIFT. “I’m concerned a bit, maybe more than a bit, at the use of provocative words that are being thrown around here at the beginning,” said Councilmember Bruce Stahlman during the June 3 council meeting. “‘Blight’ is a technical term, and you guys understand that. I understand you guys are using it to make a point. … But it raises a concern that minds are made up before we’re even close to getting all the facts on the table.” He was referring to words like “illegal,” “social-engineering project,” “swindle” and “secret meetings” coming from the eight people who expressed concerns. Previously known as the Riverfront Authority, LIFT was formed as a financing mechanism to get the building that is now Echostar, on the southwest corner

of Bowles Avenue and Santa Fe Drive, built in 1985. It was originally supposed to be a mixed-use project that included a shopping mall called the Riverfront Festival Center, but ultimately only the mall and two restaurants were built. The major recession of the early 1980s led to the mall’s demise in 1989. The original debt was either paid off or discharged by the city, according to City Attorney Ken Fellman, and the authority could have simply disbanded in 2012. Instead it became LIFT this year, with the stated goal of redevelopment and renewal of areas within the city. The LIFT board hired Anne Ricker of Ricker/Cunningham to study four areas: The Santa Fe corridor from Prince Street to just south of Mineral Avenue; the Broadway corridor from north of Powers Avenue to south of Littleton Boulevard; the Columbine Square area along Belleview Avenue, including the shopping areas on both the east and west sides of Federal Boulevard; and the Littleton Boulevard corridor from Windermere Street to Bannock Street. Ricker says all four areas more than adequately meet the legal definition of blight, and LIFT will vote June 16 on whether they agree with her. City council gets the final say after that. But Ricker’s findings got people who

have been active with the grassroots group Citizens for Rational Development riled up again, after they spent much of the year battling a number of high-density apartment projects. Former Mayor Doug Clark is one of those people, and he attended the meeting armed with a presentation about the Riverfront Authority. It’s a subject he’s well-informed on, having been on its board and city council in 1999, when both bodies approved excusing any debt that remained at the end of 2008. Despite that, Clark alleges that the authority owes the city nearly $11 million in bond payments and about $472,000 in promissory notes. “The project was not a catalyst to the economic vitality of downtown or the city of Littleton,” he wrote. “The Festival Center was vacant for nine years, and both restaurants on the property closed. The city received no increase in tax revenue for 25 years.” In fact, most everyone agrees the Riverfront project went awry. “I don’t think anybody is arguing at all about the success of the Riverfront Authority,” said Mayor Pro Tem Bruce Beckman. “It wasn’t a success, and it left a lot of things in its wake that Littleton shouldn’t be proud of. There were not a lot of kumbaya moments. But in any-

Ribbon Cutting and Grand Opening Celebration at Land Rover Denver The South Metro Denver Chamber proudly supported the opening celebration of Land Rover Denver last Thursday, May 22nd. The new dealership is the result of the Kuni Automotive Company’s purchase and merger of Land Rover Denver East and Land Rover Highlands Ranch in 2011, and the renovation of the 6160 South Broadway property. Over 100 guests were greeted by the friendly Land Rover Denver staff and offered complimentary valet parking. The celebration kicked off with remarks from Marcia McGilley, interim CEO of the South Metro Denver Chamber. McGilley reflected on the dealership becoming part of the KUNI Automotive family, a great community organization. “The South Metro Denver Chamber is thrilled to welcome Land Rover Denver to our area. They provide a vital product to our adventurous Coloradans,” said McGilley. The Chamber Board of Directors Chair is held by Herm Brocksmith, president/general manager/operating partner of Kuni Honda on Arapahoe. Chamber member and Mayor of Littleton Phil Cernanec also commented on the importance of the Kuni Automotive family’s importance to the state of Colorado. The automotive group currently owns 5 dealerships in Colorado, as well as dealerships in California, Oregon, and Washington.

Joe Eberhardt, president of Jaguar Land Rover North America, and Greg Goodwin, CEO KUNI Automotive, focused their remarks on Anthony Brownlee, president/general manager Land Rover Denver. According to Eberhardt and Goodwin, the new location’s success can be attributed to Brownlee’s leadership and ability to create a positive work environment. The ribbon cutting was followed by a live ice sculpture cutting of the Land Rover logo and refreshments. “It was as classy as the vehicles,” said Peggy Cole, Little City Councilmember and Chamber member. The high profile event was

thing that I’ve ever addressed, privateproperty rights come first. Looking at it from that standpoint will make a difference.” The Riverfront Authority condemned a trailer park to build the mall, paying a portion of the residents’ moving costs and up to 60 percent of the value or $6,000 for each trailer, whichever was less. While Ricker says there are no occupied single-family homes included in the study areas, there are plenty of apartments. Mayor Phil Cernanec urged the critics to take a breath and see how things play out. “We’re trying to understand things from a 360-degree perspective,” he said. “It’s prudent for us to take a look at what could be, and what the possibilities are. Be careful how far ahead of us you might be talking. But that’s not meant to squelch your comments.” “But if you let the snow build up, you end up with an avalanche, and I think that’s what people are trying to get ahead of,” replied Councilmember Jerry Valdes.

LYFE Kitchen Announces First Colorado Location with “Sprout Cutting” LYFE (Love Your Food Everyday) Kitchen, a “fresh casual” restaurant, celebrated the upcoming June 6 opening of its first Colorado location with South Metro Denver Chamber business leaders on Wednesday, May 28. In a whimsical celebration of health, they cut a garland of Brussels sprouts and peppers to mark the occasion. Prior to the sprouts ribbon cutting, Mike Donahue, partner and chief communications officer, provided welcoming remarks, as did DJ and Rachel Mitchel, owners of LYFE Kitchen Park Meadows. Joining them were Marcia McGilley, interim CEO of the South Metro Denver Chamber, Rick Whipple, chair-elect of the South Metro Denver Chamber and owner of WhippleWood CPAs, and Pamela Schenk-Kelly, general manager of Park Meadows Retail Resort. “We are thrilled to bring the LYFE Kitchen concept to Denver,” said DJ Mitchell, owner/operator or LYFE Kitchen Denver. “We believe LYFE Kitchen and our motto of ‘Eat Good. Feel Good. Do Good,’ will be a perfect addition to the area given the active lifestyles of the people who live in the community.” Over 75 guests were treated to a luncheon featuring some of the restaurant’s most popular dishes. “Great event, the food was

fabulous and location perfect. I will definitely be coming back often!” said Gloria Eddy, director of marketing for MassMutual Colorado and Chamber member. LYFE Kitchen provides great-tasting, good-for-you food that is convenient and affordable. LYFE Kitchen offers delicious dishes to meet a variety of food preferences, and uses locally sourced ingredients whenever possible. The message of “Eat Good” is brought to life through inspired dishes created by executive chefs Art Smith and Tal Ronnen, as well as Jeremy Bringardner, who recently won the title of Chopped Champion on the Food Network’s cooking competition show, Chopped. LYFE Kitchen’s three visionary chefs spent an entire year pursuing the LYFE Kitchen Restaurant taste quest - exploring varieties of herbs, spices and sauces - to develop flavors and find the ingredients that make LYFE’s menu so delicious. “The South Metro Denver Chamber is thrilled to have a health restaurant option for our members and neighbors,” said McGilley. “The food and smoothies were delicious and attendees went back for seconds on every item served.”

“Colorado’s price in this was not small,” said Crandall. “We lost a lot of our future in the battles of World War II.” But the ones who made it home did so with remarkable stories. Watt was an aerial gunner in the Asian theater. On Sept. 2, 1945, his plane was sent to provide protection to the USS Missouri in Tokyo Bay. On board the ship were representatives from Japan, the United States, China, the Great Britain, Northern Ireland, Russia, Australia, Canada, France, the Netherlands and New Zealand. At the head of the table was Gen. Douglas MacArthur, there to accept the surrender of Japan as presented by its foreign minister, Mamoru Shigemitsu. “But I was more interested in the Navy armada,” recalls Watt. “Tokyo Bay was full of nothing

but ships.” He also remembers seeing big corrugated buildings with giant white flags, with the letters “POW” written big and bold. “They were there to say don’t bomb them, they’re ours,” said Watt. “They probably saved a lot of lives.” The next day, he flew over the still-smoldering Hiroshima, devastated a month after the bomb fell. That’s a lot for a 16-year-old to take in, but Watt said he’d do it all again. And, he said, the young soldiers of today are carrying on the legacy of the Greatest Generation. “Kids in Afghanistan and Iraq are doing a pretty darn good job,” he said. “Just follow orders. Do what you’re told to do. There are a lot of smart people that know what’s going on. You might think they’re all messed up, but they’ve been there before and they know what to do.”

marijuana ordinance,” Bob Hoban, an attorney representing the medical marijuana dispensary, told council on May 22. “But they’re working on ballot language for a citizens’ initiative.” In the fall of 2013, council heard an ordinance that would have allowed the four existing dispensaries to convert to retail outlets if they wanted to. But instead, the members voted 6-1 to extend the moratorium, hastily enacted after Amendment 64 passed in 2012, to October of this year. There’s some debate over why council is addressing the issue now rather than waiting five months until the moratorium runs out. Stein said on May 22 that he thinks it’s to let the CannaMart owners gauge the temperature of council in time to get a petition drive under way for the November ballot. Cernanec firmly disagreed with that assertion, but all seven councilmembers agreed they needed to stop kicking the can down the road with temporary bans and have an up-or-down vote. “I’m not interested in putting this in front of the voters,” said Stahlman on May 22. “I think it’s our responsibility to do something.” The July 1 hearing starts at 6:30 p.m. in council chambers at the Littleton Center, 2255 W. Berry Ave. For more information, visit www.littletongov.org or call 303-7953700.

dangerous thing.” Imagine being trapped in a burning house in 1914 waiting for the Federal to get ready to go. But she was a distinct improvement to prior conditions, as described at the time by the Littleton Independent: “The men did not have fancy fire trucks, but were obliged to run and drag a heavy two-wheeled cart holding around 750 feet of 2-1/2 inch hose, a few leather buckets, a coal oil lantern or two, axes, crowbars, and a few other odds and ends to do damage with.” Gorman said since the Federal got out more in her younger years, it likely took less time to get her engine revving. But just because she’s old-fashioned and a little cranky now is no reason to dump her, he says. “It’s rare for a fire department to keep such an old piece of equipment, as old rigs are often sold, and an old-fashioned crank-starter like the Federal would normally have been melted for the scrap drive during World War II,” he said. Of course, Gorman is not the Federal’s first love. He was her rebound after LFR Capt. Tom Rybolt dumped her for retirement. But the relationship stuck, and Gorman poured himself into it wholeheartedly. He memorized every part of her during a complete frame-off restoration in 2003, the two of them spending late nights together at the department and sneaking into his back yard on weekends. Her clutch is leather, reverse is temperamental and her oak rear wheels weigh 185 pounds each. Her shiny brass tank holds 30 gallons of water that mixes with sodium bicarbonate, pressurized to shoot high into the air — which came in handy for fighting grain-elevator fires back in Littleton’s agricultural days. With the help of Gorman’s neighbors, friends and co-workers, today the Federal is as beautiful as ever, with all of her parts replaced, refinished or shined up to

Capt. Mark Gorman backs the city’s antique fire truck up to the entrance at Town Hall Arts Center, a trickier proposition than backing the truck up when it was new in 1914. Photos by Jennifer Smith a high gloss. “Several members of the department realize how fortunate they are to have this remarkable piece of history and volunteer their time,” said Gorman. After all these years together, Gorman shuns pet names and still just calls her the Federal. “She’s never been disgraced with a nickname,” he says. He knows someday she’ll probably ditch him for a younger guy; he just hopes her future suitors are up to the challenge. But if not, he says, he’ll always be willing to take care of her. “They’ve got my phone number. They know how to reach me,” he grinned.

Stampede rides again

KUVO collars kudos from columnist

History, heritage foundation lead rodeo into 50th year By Deborah Grigsby

Special to Colorado Community Media Awarding more than $47,000 in prize money, the 2014 Elizabeth Stampede closed the arena Sunday night, June 8, again proving its status as a Colorado rodeo legend. This year brought in record numbers of fans for the three-day event, held June 6-8, and although official numbers were not available, estimates put total attendance somewhere close to 7,000. However, as it enters its 50th year, 27th as a professional event, the three-time Pro Rodeo Cowboys Association Small Rodeo of the Year keeps itself grounded in its roots as a community event. Organized and produce entirely by volunteers, Elizabeth Stampede Association President, Bill Snead calls the annual rodeo one of the few family sporting events

Pretty in pink, Gracie Mae Bauer, 4, of Elbert, accessorizes her outfit with a strawberry cake-pop on June 7 while taking in the sights and sounds of this year’s ElizaBash street festival, which took place on day two of the rodeo festivities.

Both rider and horse were able to finish the event. left. “Rodeo is just good, clean entertainment,” said Snead in a written statement. “It is a family experience based on purpose and by heritage.” “We really like the small town feel of the Stampede,” said Fran Delano of Larkspur, accompanied by his 6-year-old grandson, Hunter. “For me, it’s really an opportunity to connect with the next generation of my family, and events like the mutton bustin’ help me open that door on their level.” Top-ranked cowboys and cowgirls went head-to head, in some cases literally,

with some of the best stock in the region. Barrel racing, saddle bronc, team roping, steer wrestling and bull riding did not disappoint fans. “I love the ladies’ barrel racing,” said Marsha Ames of Aurora. “My daughter used to race before she went off to college — the girls and their horses really put their all into it.” The “Behind the Chute” tours, conducted an hour prior to each performance also gave fans the chance to meet the contestants, the rodeo clown, rodeo royalty, and see the stock up close.

Slow-cooked barbecue on a stick is kept warm over an open flame, just one of the many food choices at this year’s Elizabeth Stampede.

Denver’s own KUVO 89.3-FM public radio station was named one of the best Internet jazz radio stations worldwide by Pete Naughton, a writer for The Telegraph in London, one of the United Kingdom’s top media outlets. According to the story posted at www. kuvo.org/kuvo-news, Naughton, who writes for The Telegraph’s podcasts and internet radio columns, listed KUVO as one of the top three best “Jazz & Soul Internet Radio Stations” he’s discovered across the world. Below is what he reported in his online column, “Best Internet Radio Stations” on May 26. “I stumbled upon this award-winning music station by accident recently — and have been kicking myself for not finding it sooner. Based in Denver, Colorado, its artfully curated playlists mostly focus on jazz — broadcasting everything from Ella Fitzgerald to Madeleine Peyroux. A class act.” “We knew KUVO was a gem when we merged our public media organizations last year,” said Doug Price, president and CEO of Rocky Mountain PBS. “We’re proud of the work they do and the valuable service they provide to our Colorado community. We are excited for the future and the international doors that have been opened with the online radio stations and mobile app.” KUVO serves a diverse audience that loves jazz — all styles of jazz. The station’s lineup reflects the flavors of jazz from around the world. “We are proud of this international recognition,” said Carlos Lando, KUVO’s general manager. “We’ve always been proud of our long tradition of sharing jazz, blues and news with our loyal listeners in our community. But, it’s really fantastic that our community is growing worldwide. We have fans from Japan, Spain, China, and apparently the UK.”

Gallery takes new look at paper Exhibit comes to art district on Santa Fe By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe @coloradocommunitymedia.com “In contemporary times, paper has become ubiquitous, taken for granted and often wasted. With digitized communication and multiple movements towards preserving natural resources, we speak of paperless transactions. (`Save a tree.’) We reduce, reuse, recycle, yet we are surrounded by this everyday material,” writes creative director Cecily Cullen of The Center for Visual Art, Metropolitan State University’s handsome gallery at the north end of the Santa Fe Arts District. Instead of heeding all those “r” words, CVA has challenged nine national and area artists to treat paper as a creative medium and the three-dimensional results promise to be astonishing, judging from the sample photos we have received. Readers will want to visit “Paper Work,” which runs from June 20 to Aug. 2 at the CVA. Minnesota artist Liz Miller will create a site-specific installation and will talk at a sneak preview at 5:30 p.m. on June 19. The show officially opens on June 20 and runs until Aug. 2, with an opening reception from 6 to 8 p.m., in conjunction with the Arts District’s Third Friday. The MSU Art Department will offer 2-D and 3-D design classes, with a focus on paper, concurrently with the exhibition and will challenge students to create work to be considered for exhibition in the Emerging Artists Gallery from July 15 to Aug. 2, so one may want to plan a return visit. (In the early part of the show, youth in the ABC Young Artist Studio Program will show their artwork in the Emerging Artists Gallery.) Colorado artists Diane Martonis and Susan Porteus investigate architectural and geographic space, while Anne Hallam, Dawn McFadden and Jennifer Ghormley, also Colorado-based, tend toward organic forms in nature, Cullen said. Brooklyn artist Mia Pearlman’s intricate layers of cut paper suggest forces of nature and weather patterns, while Pittsburgh’s Bovey Lee draws from traditional Chinese folk art, combined with personal contemporary imagery.

Charlie Daniels prepares to play his fiddle during his performance at the May 24 Volunteer Jam at Fiddler’s Green. Daniels was the headliner for the show that was a tribute to volunteers. There were 1,400 tickets distributed to military personnel, first responders and others. It started raining but much of the audience bundled up and stayed to hear him sing and play his fiddle. Photo by Tom Munds “Butterfly Gown” by Bovey Lee will be in the exhibit, “Paper Work,” open June 20 at the Center for Visual Art, Metro State University’s gallery. Courtesy photo Melissa Jay Craig, who lives and works in Chicago, writes about her preferred medium: “I work with handmade paper specifically for its minimal environmental impact, its utter versatility, its enormous variety and for its deceptive strength, contrasted with its perceived fragility.” In addition to the June 20 opening reception, from 6 to 8 p.m. on July 10, CVA will offer “Paper Manipulations: 3-D Investigations Workshop,” led by assistant professor of art and exhibition artist Anne Hallam and Ben Dyhr, assistant professor of mathematics. A related show, “Pulp Mastery,” with works by Mary Ellen Long and Melissa Jay Craig, will be at the Abecedarian Gallery, 910 Santa Fe Drive unit 101, June 20 through Aug. 2.

IF YOU GO The Center for Visual Arts, CVA, is at 965 Santa Fe Drive, Denver. Admission is free. Hours: 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays; noon to 5 p.m. Saturdays. Open first and third Fridays until 8 p.m. “Paper Work” runs June 20 to Aug. 2. 303-294-5207, msudenver.edu.

Fiddler’s Green gets needed upgrades Concert attendees will notice improvements By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe @coloradocommunitymedia.com When Fiddler’s Green Amphitheatre opened for the Charlie Daniels concert honoring veterans and first responders on May 24, there was still evidence to be seen of the $6 million renovation underway at the concert venue, owned by the Museum Outdoor Arts and leased to other concert promoters since 1988. MOA, which operates an indoor gallery in Englewood, with educational programs and a large collection of outdoor art in several locations, was initially conceived by Cynthia Madden Leitner and her arts-oriented father John Madden, developer of the Denver Tech Center. It has had a special interest in large site-specific sculptural art and is collaborating with the Arvada Center on placement of a sculpture collection on its extensive grounds, to open this summer. A space for smaller local concerts and events, Fiddler’s Green, which opened in 1982 and is located in Greenwood Village (the venue has had several other names over the years), has grown to more than 17,000 seats and hosted big national acts such as Lollapalooza and Bob Dylan (who returns July 31) — and it was showing wear and tear. Concert attendees this summer will sense improvements in the stage and sound systems immediately and will see ongoing improvement. A new 15-year lease was recently signed between the MOA and a new operator, AEG Live, including longtime promoter Chuck Morris and general manager Rob Thomas

(building manager for Fiddler’s Green) who have publicized extensive renovation plans. According to material sent out by the MOA, work will continue through the year. The entrance and curving walk up into the venue are redesigned for smoother traffic flow, with a new merchandise booth set back from the main walkway, so shoppers don’t block the arriving concert fans. Bathroom access is paved, facilities improved and concession booths are replaced. Madden Leitner said the back-of-house improvements are ongoing: a catering area and kitchen, and administrative spaces will replace structures that were “practically demolished.” She is especially excited about the wall of living plants she proposed, which will be installed soon on the walls above all four portals and walls around the venue. It will include 35,000 live plants — “a panoramic living mural”, she called it — featuring plants known to do well in Colorado. They are growing in a nursery now. LED lights will be placed throughout and a sound wave pattern will be developed with lights and foliage color. The designer is Paul Kephart of Rana Creek in Monterey, Calif., an ecological design and nursery firm. Each plant will be individually digitized so its needs for water will be monitored. A detention pond in adjacent Samson Park, also owned by MOA, will supply adequate water for the plants. This installation is a symbol of Madden Leitner’s expressed wish to make the entire operation as green as possible. A glance at the website shows numerous concerts scheduled through September, and more will no doubt be added. (AEG Live also operates the Gothic, Bluebird and Ogden theaters and 1stBank Center in Broomfield, as well as books shows at Red Rocks and the Pepsi Center.)

Four ways to see Peggy Jo and tell her story All of which are partly true By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe @coloradocommunitymedia.com “A place to lie down, sit down and fry up ham and eggs” says Emily Harrison, as Peggy Jo Tallas, while she looks over the giant RV that Cowboy Bob (Brian Colonna as Peggy Jo Tallas) proposes to purchase. “You reckon Momma would have liked it?” wonders Hanna Duggan as Peggy Jo Tallas. A wad of cash passes to the hands of car salesman Erik Edborg, who then removes his flashy plaid jacket and resumes the part of FBI agent Steve Powell, who is trying to record the history of a most unusual bank robber — yup, one Peggy Jo. Four actors are lined up to introduce themselves as Peggy Jo when lights go up. A long, carefully crafted image of a big RV interior fills the back of the stage against a Texas sky-blue wall at Buntport Theater this week, and the audience takes their seats to await what action will take place in and near it. This audience member wishes she had researched Peggy Jo in advance of attending —and, better yet, read the lengthy 2005 Texas Monthly story by Skip Hollandsworth, “The Last Ride of Cowboy Bob.” It would have made little details in “Peggy Jo and the Desolate Nothing” fall neatly into place. Buntport Theater’s members are so clever at creating and staging original new works

IF YOU GO “Peggy Jo and the Desolate Nothing” plays through June 21 at Buntport Theater, 717 Lipan St., Denver. Performances: 8 p.m. Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, 3 p.m. Sundays. Tickets $13-$20, www.buntport.com, 720946-1388. and we were happy to hear of their collaboration with Boulder’s square product theatre, which has similar skills. They do share in the program that Emily Harrison of square product knew about Peggy Jo Tallas, but a brief paragraph more about this character would have helped. “If you’re ready to start your future today, see Guaranty Bank,” says the first of assorted blurbs about that bank, noted by a large sign on stage. We meet four Peggy Jo’s: two age 40 one age 60 and Cowboy Bob, with bushy dark beard-a persona she sometimes used in her many successful bank robberies in Texas. And tying the stories together is FBI agent Steve Powell, who actually existed also and spent his career chasing bank robbers and compiling their histories. There is mention early on of “unreliable sources — that this story is partly true” and as Hannah Duggan as Peggy Jo wonders: “Where do you start to start?” Steve advocates: “Start in the middle — let’s hit the road and get the heck out of here.” And we’re off on a disjointed journey, with Momma appearing on occasion to read se-

`John and Jen’ is unusual musical Thoughtful work staged by Cherry Creek Theatre By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe @coloradocommunitymedia.com Set in a changing America, 1950 to 1990, “John and Jen” at Cherry Creek Theatre is a chamber musical, with music by Andrew Lippa, lyrics by Tom Greenwald and book by both. It’s a nice opportunity for local audiences to see a less-performed sort of summer musical, featuring top vocalists and a thoughtful look at two intertwined family relationships. Directed by Pat Payne and produced by the always-interesting Cherry Creek Theatre Company, it tells the story of Jen, played by the excellent Megan Van De Hay, and — in the first act — her younger brother John, played by Casey Andree. Andree plays an-

other John in Act II. The two have abusive parents and Jen tries to protect her little brother from the father, in particular. Their story continues into adolescence, when Jen heads for college and becomes a hippie, while lonely John comes more under his dad’s influence and joins the Navy. He dies in Vietnam as Act I brings an end to a story that includes happy moments, great loyalty between siblings, as well as a growing-apart period and an underlying sadness. Both actors are accomplished singers and their voices blend nicely, backed by Trent Hines on piano and Anna Maria Blocker Leavitt on cello. Lippa’s score and Greenwald’s lyrics provide most of the communication between the pair and became a bit monotonous to this untrained ear. Act II presents Jen welcoming a new baby son, whom she names John, and it follows their often bumpy path as he becomes a young man. A particularly entertaining segment has to do with her insistence that he

Her appearance as an obnoxious mom at a game — embarrassing her son and offending everyone within earshot — is almost worth the price of a ticket to those of us who have sat next to such a person during an offspring’s game or two. Cherry Creek Theatre Company is to be congratulated for bringing this thoughtful work to their audiences. Lippa wrote music and lyrics for the Broadway musical “The Addams Family,” as well the recent “Big Fish” and the award-winning off Broadway musical “The

This story is amazing in that she got away with it for years, before and after a prison stint. I wonder if another 15 minutes added to the play might fill in a few more colorful details? I walked out feeling entertained by Buntport’s quirky humor, certainly, but cut off too soon.

A crowd of 300 people is expected to gather at 11 a.m. on June 13 at Wind Crest retirement community in Highlands Ranch to sing the national anthem, hoping to set a record for the largest intergenerational singing of “The Star-Spangled Banner.” The gathering at Wind Crest’s Fireside restaurant (3235 Mill Vista Road in Highlands Ranch) is part of the celebration of the 200th anniversary of Francis Scott Key’s writing of the poem during the bombardment of Fort McHenry that became the national anthem.

Cyndi Lauper and other girls (and boys) who just wanna have fun were spotted at Lucky Strike in the Denver Pavilions June 3. While there, Lauper bowled with a few of her staff while they ate crudites, fish tacos, guacamole and short rib tacos. I’m also told that she is much better suited as an awesome singer, as she bowled a 58. Lucky Strike staff noted that the celebrated singer was “very, very nice.”

Littleton runner Noah McGhee turns the corner as he eludes a would-be Englewood tackler during the June 6 Lions-Pirates scrimmage. McGhee used his speed and quickness to go the distance on this play. The Lions moved the ball well on several plays and the defense pretty well held the Pirates in check. Photos by Tom Munds

Littleton hosts scrimmage against Englewood By Tom Munds

tmunds @coloradocommunitymedia.com Teammates and fans cheered as the Lions moved the ball or the Littleton defense held their ground at the June 6 football scrimmage against Englewood. The scrimmage is one element of the summer’s two weeks of practices with pads and the full-contact sessions that are allowed under state rules. Coach Kurt Krantz talked to his team after the scrimmage and he repeatedly told the players he was proud of their efforts and their play. “We did well today. I saw improvement and our goal is to improve every time we go out on the field,” the coach said. “We had 20 seniors graduate and we have young kids moving up to fill those spots. Most of the young kids have watched varsity competition from the sidelines until today. They responded well as they stepped up and did a good job for us.” He said he is happy that the number of freshmen out for the team is almost three times the number of freshmen he had last

year. “We have a good turnout,” he said. “It looks like we’ll have some depth when the season starts which is something we didn’t have last year.” The Lions’ first offensive series proved successful as quarterback Joey Dennen tossed the ball to Noah McGhee. The blockers created a seam and McGhee then used his quickness and speed to elude defenders as he carried the football into the end zone. Littleton also showed why they won the hog relays competition for linemen as, on offense and defense, the guys in the trenches showed their toughness. During the scrimmage, the linemen provided opening for the runners and protected the quarterback on most plays. When Littleton played defense, Englewood found it very tough to run the football up the middle and several times, Lion defenders broke through to sack the Pirate quarterback. After the scrimmage, Coach Krantz said he saw a lot of young players do good things in what was their first taste of varsity competition. Denning is one of the players moving into the starting varsity lineup for the first time. “It was fun out there today,” Denning said after the varsity portion of the scrimmage was completed. “Our guys were fly-

ing around all the time. Our defense played very well today. This was a great chance to learn and to get the chance to hit someone who is wearing colors other than purple and gold.” The senior said the scrimmage emphasized he still has a lot of things to learn. “One of the things that I learned is the coaches is always right,” he said. “For example, I threw an interception and the

coach talked to me about what I did wrong and what I need to do to avoid throwing interceptions.” Denning said he is excited and eager for football season to begin. “Our team looks good, even better than I expected,” he said. “We have a lot of guys back from last year plus some good new guys. We are shaping up and I think we will do very well this season.”

Turnage, a senior at Highlands Ranch, is the Colorado Community Media South Metro Boys Track Athlete of the Year, while Cherry Creek’s Colter gets the honor on the girls side. “Connor is a really dedicated track athlete,” said Falcons head coach Lou Krauss. “He’s a student of the sport. He understands the technique. Triple jump is a sport typically where you don’t develop until your junior or senior year. He hasn’t been beat in the triple jump in the state of Colorado since his freshman year.” Turnage, who will continue his track career at Nebraska, jumped 48-09.75 to win his third straight state title and finish what he termed a frustrating season. “I can’t complain too much, it was the second-best jump of my life,” said Turnage, who was the 2013 Colorado Gatorade Track Athlete of the Year. “As frustrating as the season was, I was pretty happy. I wasn’t jumping very well up until two or three weeks before state. “I wasn’t jumping well throughout the whole season, but I brought it around at the end. I was pretty confident I could win at state. It was just a matter of doing what I could.” Krauss was also confident. “He’s a big meet jumper,” said Krauss. “There were a couple technical issues that were kind of disguised, and we just caught them two or three weeks before the state meet. He was trying something a little different that I wasn’t aware of, and it was getting him too far forward. “Once we got that sorted out, he started jumping better. We worked hard to clean up his form. If we would have had one more week before state, he would have been jumping a foot farther.” Colter finished strong to win the 1600 meters in 4:57.27 at the state meet and also captured the 800 in 2:09.16. She won both those events at the 2013 state meet. The diminutive junior, who weighs less than 100 pounds, won the state cross coun-

try meet as a freshman, but collapsed from low sodium, low potassium and a high white blood cell count while holding a sizable lead during 2012 meet. She had mono during last fall’s cross country championships. Colter was strong on the track against a talented field in this spring’s 800 and 1600, but after each race looked drained. “That’s definitely something we’ve been somewhat concerned about,” admitted Creek distance coach Ethan Dusto. “She actually spent a lot of time in the off-season doing weight training to get her muscle mass up and her weight up. She’s been working a lot of different weight training type things to get stronger. “She has probably put on five to eight pounds of muscle mass in the off-season. She gets after it and trains harder than anybody else that I coach. She is always trying to hit more Tagline Font: Proxima Nova Condensed Reg miles and a faster pace. She wants to take some time off and I definitely would like her to take some time off, do some crosstraining, keep up the weight training so that she can be fit and ready for the cross country season. She needs to take some time off.” There are national track meets that can extend the season through June. Colter might skip some of those meets this month, with emphasis on the word “might.” “I was very happy to win both races at state,” said Colter. “I coach a club team in the summer, so I run a little with them. I do a lot Cherry Creek junior Jordyn Colter, left, wins the Class 5A 1600 meter state championship for her second victory of of cross-training. “I’ll just probably keep my miles up and the meet.

Rock Canyon’s Young followed sport early Soccer player bound for college in Oregon By Jim Benton jbenton @coloradocommunitymedia.com Kaycie Young grew up watching some of the best onetwo touch soccer players and molded herself into one. Young, a Rock Canyon senior, is the Colorado Community Media Girls Soccer Player of the Year. She is headed to the University of Portland next fall to play soccer, and Young’s arrival means the Pilots will also be getting the 2014 Continental League Player of the Year and the Colorado Gatorade Player of the Year. “My sister (Bri) played soccer at a pretty high level when I was younger,” said Young. “I watched her play and I watch a lot of soccer on TV. I was taught to play that way (one-two touch). It was a pretty easy thing to develop because I had been watching it that way my whole life “ Rock Canyon coach Matt Henbest boasts that Young was part of the reason behind the Jaguars’ Continental League championship season. “She’s a good person with good character,” said Henbest. “In terms of on the field, she’s a one-two touch soccer player. You have to be able to think quick. She sees the field so well. She is incredibly unselfish. She could have scored more goals. She is the all-time goal-scoring leader at the school with 45.” Young, a 5-foot-7 midfielder, has led Rock Canyon in scoring the past three years. She finished her senior season with 13 goals and 35 points for Rock Canyon, which ended with a 16-2 record after a state quarterfinal loss to Ralston Valley. “If I have an opportunity, I usually try to take shots,” said Young. “I’ve always had players around me that can do that. I like to take shots when the opportunity presents itself. It comes with experience. It took me a while to start shooting.” It didn’t take long for opponents to learn that Young was a player who always needed to be marked. “Kaycie has a commanding presence on the field that is intimidating to opposing teams but yet calming to her teammates,” commented Highlands Ranch coach Danny Main . “I got to play with a lot of great people and the coaching staff was awesome,” said Young. “It was a great last year to end my high school career. I just wanted to be a good leader for all the underclassmen and returning players. I wanted to have fun and make it a memorable last season for me, and it was.”
