ollowing a wild spate of hail, vendors scrambled to set up their wares on streets littered with downed branches. But the storm ended around 4 p.m., leaving them plenty of time for the Littleton Block Party’s 6 p.m. starting time on June 14. “I’m very pleased with the results, especially in light of everything we were up against,” said Greg Reinke, president of the Historic Downtown Littleton Merchants. Though the weather kept some folks away, Reinke estimates somewhere between 10,000 and 12,000 showed up to enjoy local food and beverages, roving circus entertainers, bands on four stages and two fireworks shows.

The city’s Historic Preservation Board is excited about new state tax incentives designed to attract reinvestment in historic commercial properties like many of those found in downtown Littleton. “It really fits with the economic concepts the city has been assertively pursuing,” said Chuck Reid, HPB vice chair, during a June 10 joint study session between HPB and Littleton City Council. The Colorado Job Creation and Main Street Revitalization Act allows property owners to get up to a 25 percent tax credit on projects that help preserve historic buildings as viable commercial entities. HB-1311 provides $5 million in tax credits in 2016 and $10 million in 2017 through 2019, when it’s set to expire. “Many of Colorado’s traditional main streets are at a tipping point,” writes Rachel Parris, a project manager with Colorado Preservation Inc. “Many buildings are vacant, their historic facades in decay and their local economies in desperate need of investment and revitalization. Colorado was one of the first states to create a Historic Preservation Tax Credit in 1990, but there is significant need to improve this tax credit so that Colorado remains competitive with neighboring states and so that the credit can be better used to attract critical commercial reinvestment, rehabilitation and revitalization of main streets across our state.” While the bill was written with areas damaged by last year’s floods in mind — Estes Park, for example — it’s not restricted to them. Consider the former Opus building on Main Street, now empty for nearly two years. “Bars and restaurants are a healthy and vibrant section of the economy,” said Reid. “We believe the historic district led people to want to invest in downtown Littleton.” To qualify, the building has to be designated historic either individually or as part of a district. But Littleton’s downtown historic district is a unique beast, allowing property owners to opt in at their discretion. Most districts simply blanket an area whether the owners like it or not, and that was an epic point of contention in Littleton in 2005 as city and business leaders struggled to define what the district would be. The opt-in compromise was finally reached, and today, about 60 percent of the property owners have joined. Margi Clute, HPB chair, said the board’s priority has been trying to convince more Downtown continues on Page 28

Literacy rate low among blind Professor seeks help in finding answers By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@coloradocommunitymedia.com Imagine a world without reading. Now imagine a world where you could read anytime, anywhere, even in the dark. Matt Maurer says 90 percent of blind people are living in the former world, and he hopes to help bring them into the latter. Maurer, a professor of instructional technology at Butler University in Indiana, visited the Colorado Center for the Blind June 10 to enlist the help of its students with his research into Braille, a language that is languishing on the vine. A 2009 study by the National Federation of the Blind found that fewer than 10 percent of the 1.3 million people in the United States who are legally blind can read Braille, and only about 10 percent of blind children are learning it. This leads to high dropout and unemployment rates in the blind community, which is likely to get worse as baby boomers age and the incidence of diabetes, a leading cause of blindness, skyrockets.

CoLumn to return soon Ann MAcAri HeAley is on vacation. Her column about people, places and issues of everyday life will return soon.

Maurer is traveling to centers like CCB across the country, filming the hands of Braille readers along the way to see how the fastest ones achieve their speed. “We know a lot about good technique in Braille, but very little of it is documented,” he said. He’s looking for things like whether they use one or both hands, how many fingers they use and how much pressure they apply. He’s seen people who just use one finger, and people who read the beginning of the line with their right hand and finish with the left while the right one finds the new line. He’s even seen people whose hands can read separately, and people who start with one hand on either side of the line and then meet in the middle. Few can really explain why they read the way they do, he said, and some can’t even describe what they do accurately. Jasmine McCandless, 8, told Maurer she reads with all 10 fingers — mostly joke books, her favorite — but then realized that she really only touches the paper with two at a time. Her teacher, Michelle Chacon, said her two hands usually read independently, unless she’s tired. Chacon reads about 180 words a minute. Maurer said it’s hard to know for sure what’s average, but he thinks it’s around 150 or so. Maurer’s interest in educating the blind is rooted in family. He is sighted, but his brother, Marc, has been blind since birth and president of the NFB since 1986. Both passionate about education, they worked together in 2006 on a project that examined best practices and common characteristics of outstanding educators for the blind. But the key to education for any child, sighted or blind, is, of course, literacy. “Braille is full literacy, audio is only partial literacy,” said Matt Maurer. He explained that many kids with visual impairment are steered toward visual reading in public schools with limited resources, even when they know the child’s sight will eventually get worse. And magni-

Michelle Chacon, a teacher at the Colorado Center for the Blind, can read Braille at a rate of about 180 words a minute. Photo by Jennifer Smith fying tools take away from the experience of reading, he said, kind of like sitting in the front row at a movie theater. But one of the biggest reasons Braille is endangered is that technology meant to ease the lives of the blind has, perhaps, eased them a bit too much. “I don’t hear anybody saying sighted kids should give up print just because they have technology,” said Maurer. “We’ll give up Braille when you give up print.” Reading, whether done through the eyes

or the hands, is a more active process than listening, he said — consider the difference between reading a book and listening to a book on tape. “Print and Braille are about creating meaning from symbols,” said Maurer. The NFB agrees. “No one would seriously suggest that alternate sources of information, like television and radio, replace the need for a sighted child to learn to read; the same should be true for Braille,” says the NFB.

Fire muster continues its roll through city Event benefits Children’s Hospital burn unit By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@coloradocommunitymedia.com Some things don’t need changing, says Jim Biner. Biner has lived in Colorado his whole life. He’s been married to his high-school sweetheart, Dottie, for 55 years, and he’s had a job at Ralph Schomp Automotive for 38. And for the last 29 of those, he’s rounded up a herd of antique fire trucks every summer for the Fire Truck Parade and Muster. “I don’t change much,” he said, watching the little ones visiting the Schomp booth to score their very own cherry-red fire helmets. “I love the company, and I love the Schomp family.” Biner worked his way up from being a used-car salesman to holding a longtime position in the human-relations department. Today, he calls himself the “company’s ambassador.” He got the idea for the muster when a couple of his friends, members of Mile High Hook and Ladder, asked if they could show their antique fire trucks on the lot. He caught the fire-truck bug and found one to restore on another South Broadway lot. “The employees worked on it at night, sometimes we’d stay 24 hours just trying to get it done,” he said. The muster moved with Biner to Brighton for a time when Schomp had a store there, but he’s happy to have it back in Littleton “We’ve been embedded in Littleton,” he said. “We love the community, we love the kids and the kids love us,” he said. One of Biner’s favorite “kids” is 30-yearold Aaron Wallace, who was just a year old when he went to his first muster. He is the son of Lisa Schomp and, proving that some things do change, he’s been in charge of the day-to-day operations at Schomp Automotive since 2008. Riding aboard the dealership’s 1952 Amer-

ican LaFrance fire truck, Wallace gave Biner all the credit for the event, which benefits the burn unit at Children’s Hospital. Biner gives all the credit to Children’s Hospital for saving his wife and several other family members from polio in the 1940s. “My favorite memory from the muster is that we raise a bunch of money for Children’s,” he said. While Littleton looks forward to the clanging of fire trucks old and new as they make their way from Littleton High School to Arapahoe Community College every June, it was a new experience for Littleton Fire Rescue’s new chief, Chris Armstrong, who moved here from Florida in January. LFR Capt. Mark Gorman initiated Armstrong into the muster club by letting him ride the parade route in the crotchety but beautiful Federal, the city’s first fire truck, which turned 100 this year. “It’s good for the public to see the history,” he said. “This is giving us the opportunity to showcase what we do, and the services we provide. Everybody pays taxes, but only a small portion of people use the services they pay for. So it’s important for people to get to see what we do. And it gives us a chance to see them at their best, because we usually see them at their worst.” Speaking of seeing people at their best, some of the stars of the 2015 Firefighter Calendar, which also benefits Children’s Hospital, were on hand. Although the winners haven’t been officially announced yet, boardmember Crystal Sullings gave Colorado Community Media permission to reveal the names of the ones who were there: South Metro’s Nick Grosch, Boulder’s Glen Kice, Pueblo’s Paul Haley and Castle Rock’s Steve Patik. Biner says that this younger generation of firefighters is carrying on a fine tradition, one he hopes the kids who flock to the muster each year will learn from. “In this goofy world, firefighters are who you can go to when you’re in trouble,” he said. “Go to a firehouse, and they’ll take care of you. It’s sad that you have to think that way, but you do.”

Democrat throws hat in sheriff ring Brown says Arapahoe voters deserve choice By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@coloradocommunitymedia.com

he began majoring in political science at Eastern New Mexico University, earning an internship with the mayor of Portales, N.M. After graduation, he got a job as a code-enforcement officer with the City of Aurora, where he worked closely with the police department. That led him to an interest in law enforcement; he completed the Adams County Law Enforcement Academy and got hired by the Northglenn Police Department in 2009. While there, he spent 15 months on the SWAT team and earned several awards, including a Medal of Valor from his department and the Colorado Association of Chiefs of Police 2012 Award for Valor. Brown says he believes the most important Brown issue facing the sheriff’s office today is restoring

Tyler Brown, 31, is hoping to shake things up at the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office. “For far too long, people have seen the sheriff’s position placed in the hands of the person next in line, leaving the voters with not much of a say until well after the fact,” he said. “I want an election where there are two candidates, two visions for Arapahoe County, and the voters can decide who they want to lead the office into the future.” Indeed, Sheriff Dave Walcher inherited the job this year from Grayson Robinson, who inherited it from Pat Sullivan in 2002. Sullivan had served since 1984. Robinson and Sullivan both retired before their final terms were up, urging the Arapahoe County commissioners to appoint their hand-picked heirs. All three sheriffs are Republicans. So what gives Brown, a Democrat, the idea he can pull off this election? “Although this is my first election, and I am on the younger side when it comes to politics, I make up for it with experience in law enforcement, good judgment and a serious drive to show that local politics, when in the right hands, can be a reliable, accessible and trustworthy resource for the entire community,” he said. “I will put all my effort into making the sheriff’s office as efficient, fiscally responsible and transparent as possible.” Since March, Brown has been a campus safety officer for the Aurora Public School District. He lives in Aurora with his wife, an elementary-school teacher, and baby daughter. “We are excited to be able to raise our daughter in the area we both grew up in,” he said. Brown was born in Denver and graduated from Smoky Hill High School, and has lived in Arapahoe County for 22 years. He earned an associate of science degree at Arapahoe Community College, where he was student body president and captain of the varsity baseball team. “I am a citizen of Arapahoe County, and I care about the safety, well-being, and future of this county and its people,” he said. Brown has had politics on his mind since 2004, when

Mayor signs crabapple proclamation Next up: Guinness Book of World Records By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@coloradocommunitymedia.com It’s official: Mayor Phil Cernanec on June 3 “modestly but proudly” declared Littleton the “Flowering Crabapple Capitol of Colorado,” with a grand total of 6,727. “The city of Littleton reaffirms its commitment to a beautification program that includes planting and maintenance of flowering crabapple trees on public right of way, including the Littleton Crabapple Route and city parks, and encourages property owners to do the same on private property,” reads the proclamation. Larry Borger, Littleton Crabapple Trail board member and a former city manager, will attend the July 1 city council meeting to express the board’s appreciation, and he hopes everyone who helped with the effort will join him. “I’m extending an open invitation to everyone who had a hand in the beautification

program whether they helped by counting trees, planting trees, financing trees, watering trees or planting a tree in their yard,” he said. “I hope to have everyone stand and be recognized. Whether we are ever recognized by Guinness, the citizenry of Littleton should be proud of the designation.” The proclamation also directs city staff to help Cole Hancock submit an application to the Guinness Book of World Records in hopes of setting the record for being the city with the most crabapple trees per capita, with one tree for every six and one-quarter people in Littleton. Hancock took up the crabapple cause in 2011 as his Eagle Scout Project, and he and others from Littleton Boy Scout Troop 361 have planted about 130 trees since then. These days, they plant trees that flower but don’t bear fruit, making for a less messy flourish of beauty each spring. Hancock, who will be a sophomore at Heritage High School in the fall, also organized the effort to get all the trees counted, with volunteers combing the streets and residents sending in how many they have in their back yards. “I am so excited that now not only the community has supported us, but that the city and

the mayor are giving their support,” he said. Borger notes a long history of community support for the trees. “The city had a policy vision about flowering trees on street rights of way,” he said. “But the vast majority of the 6,727 flowering crabapple trees in Littleton are on private property, planted over the last 45 years by folks who responded to the city’s suggestion.” It was former Mayor Vaughn Gardinier’s idea 45 years ago to line Littleton’s streets with the hardy, colorful crabapple trees not just to make them pretty, but to give the city something unique. Littleton City Councilmember Bruce Stahlman was a friend and neighbor of Gardinier, who died in 2011, and he recently joined the LCT board. “I felt that joining the board at Larry’s invitation and supporting the community beautification effort was a nice way to honor his memory,” said Stahlman. “Plus, I’ve got two flowering crabapple trees in my yard that look great each spring.” For more information and to see a map of the trail, visit www.littletoncrabappletrail.org.

VA failures rub salt in vets’ wounds Legislation hopes to improve current standards in system By Vic Vela

vvela@coloradocommunitymedia.com George Claggett was a Marine who lived by his own definition of karma. The Vietnam veteran believed that treating others well wasn’t about reciprocation; rather, it was a belief that his goodness would show up elsewhere, even if he wasn’t the one reaping the benefit. It’s a good thing that Claggett wasn’t expecting anything in return for his actions toward others, or for fighting in a war of which many wanted no part, because karma wasn’t there for him during the last months of his life — much of which was spent in frustration over his dealings with the Department of Veterans Affairs. “It was hell, absolute hell,” said Michael O’Brien, a close friend and Claggett’s power of attorney, when asked what it was like dealing with the VA system. According to O’Brien, Claggett would spend several weeks just trying to schedule an appointment to see a doctor at the VA hospital in Denver. When he would finally obtain appointments, he would sometimes have to wait for hours to see a doctor. Claggett, of Denver, also waited several weeks to receive lab results of a tumor that contributed to his death on May 2. He was 66. “It just seemed like all he was doing was waiting,” O’Brien said. Claggett’s story is one of many that have surfaced in recent weeks regarding systematic failures and corruption within the VA department. “I am absolutely stunned, particularly as a combat veteran, that this agency that’s entrusted to meet our obligations for those who served in uniform can be so incredibly incompetent... and be so corrupt,” said 6th Congressional District Rep. Mike Coffman, a Republican who served in the Iraq War. Last week, Coffman joined every other member of the House in voting for a bill that aims to address some of the issues that have caused veterans like Claggett to receive substandard care from their government. The legislation is a start, say members of Congress, to restructuring a governmentrun entity that has been failing its soldiers for a very long time. “I am so angry and disappointed,” said Rep. Ed Perlmutter, a Democrat who represents Colorado’s 7th Congressional District. “There are too many stories like that.”

Seeking better options for vets

Last week, the House gave unanimous approval to the Veterans Access to Care Act. The bill requires that the VA send veterans to private health providers when the department is unable to provide care within 14 days. The legislation would also ban bonuses for VA employees and puts in place greater oversight over the department’s operations. The bill comes on the heels of a federal audit that shows that more than 57,000 veterans have waited at least three months to see a doctor, while others who asked for appointments never received one. Other findings have shown that VA employees — whose bonuses are tied to wait time reductions — falsified reports to hide information about long wait times. Reports have also shown that veterans died awaiting treatment. The scandal led to the resignation of department director Eric Shinseki. Coffman and Perlmutter believe that the legislation will go a long way in helping veterans receive better care, without having to deal with unreasonable — and sometimes life threatening — waits. “At the end of the day, it will allow the VA

On the table sits the cap that Claggett, a Vietnam veteran, often wore. Photo by Vic Vela to have a much better system to allow vets options they don’t have now,” Coffman said. Coffman, who is the chairman of the Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee of the House Veterans Affairs Committee, added an amendment to the bill that sets aside money to pay for court costs that could come as investigations into the scandal continue. Coffman said that employees who were falsifying reports out of motivation for bonus pay could end up facing criminal charges. “There are veterans who have died as a result of manipulating these appointment wait times for financial gain,” Coffman said. “To me, that’s not just a matter of firing people. (It includes) the possibility of criminal charges.” The bill is one of several efforts to change the VA system. Acting VA Director Sloan Gibson has also spelled out a list of reforms that he would like to see made. Perlmutter said the VA’s “arteries have hardened” over the years, due to a culture that has preferred to sweep problems under the rug while hoping that no one notices. “There’s more of a `protect your turf, protect your fanny’ mentality,” Perlmutter said. “There’s so many good people, but there’s others who are protecting their reputation. That’s really a problem within the system.” The Senate passed a similar bill the same week. It’s likely that the two chambers will come to a consensus on a singular piece of legislation in the coming weeks.

The wounded warrior

O’Brien said that the last year of Claggett’s life was spent in grave sickness. He was too sick to work. He often had blood in his urine, lost an unhealthy amount of weight and was also suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder that often brought on flashbacks. O’Brien said that he tried to set up appointments for weeks and when he was finally successful in obtaining one, Claggett waited for more than an hour to see a doctor — who never showed up. Claggett’s peace finally came during the early morning hours of May 2. “I gave him some morphine the night

George Claggett, a Marine and Vietnam veteran, was one of many veterans whose health care needs had been impacted by systematic problems within the Department of Veterans Affairs. Photo courtesy of Michael O’Brien before and woke up at three in the morning and I saw immediately that he was gone,” he said. “And the son of a bitch had a smile on his face.” Claggett left O’Brien the little amount of money he had at the time of his death to give to the Wounded Warriors Project, an organization that provides services to wounded veterans.

O’Brien said it wasn’t in Claggett’s nature to “advocate for himself” that he was a Vietnam veteran who deserved better treatment for serving his country. “My question is, why does a Marine have to advocate for care so he can die with a little dignity?” O’Brien said. “Why does he have to push a system to get him aid that we should be bending over backwards to give?”

Sprouts opens in Englewood About 100 line up to be store’s first shoppers By Tom Munds

tmunds@coloradocommunitymedia.com People began lining up before the sun peeked over the horizon June 11, waiting for the doors to open to customers for the first time at the Sprouts Farmers Market at 5001 S. Broadway in Englewood. “We got here about 5:30 this morning and we are the first two in line,” Muriel Walker said. “We like to shop at Sprouts, but until now, we had a long drive to do that. Now this store is just a few minutes from our house in Littleton.” The first 200 people in line received a 20 percent discount card. “We like the store because of the great selection of good fruits and vegetables,” Muriel Walker’s husband Ron said. “We also like it for the other things they carry, including what we feel is the best bacon in town.” The line grew to more than 100 people by the time the opening festivities started just before 7 a.m. City officials and store employees gathered for a brief ribbon-cutting, then the doors opened to customers. There were advertised grand opening specials and there were additional unadvertised specials in the store. Amanda Counterman, one of the checkers, hurried to her aisle. “I am glad to be a part of the team working here,” the Englewood woman said. “I am glad to see Sprouts come to Englewood. We have needed a store like this for a long time. I am excited we are opening and I

think this is a great place to work.” A staff of between 80 to 100 people will normally be employed at the store, but the company brought in extra people for opening day. When the doors opened to the public, customers entered a 27,000-square-foot, brightly lit store with rows of counters and displays of fruits and vegetables. Additionally, there are aisles of bulk items ranging from nuts and dried fruit to a selection of spices and teas. A long lighted case displays all types of meats and cheeses, while there are hotplate-like counters offering a choice of prepared soups and other prepared items. A number of city officials and city council members attended the opening. Mayor Randy Penn took part in the ribbon-cutting and, when the doors opened, Councilmember Jill Wilson went shopping. Mayor Pro Tem Linda Olson spent time talking to customers and employees before she too went shopping. “This store is a good addition to our community and, judging from the people lined up at 7 a.m. for the opening, there are a lot of people happy to see this store in our city,” she said as she pushed a shopping cart down the aisle. “I like Sprouts because the store carries healthy food, it is a familyfriendly place to shop and I think the prices are terrific.” The Sprouts Farmers Market anchors the development of the location of the former Larry Miller Nissan dealer. Englewood City Council agreed to assist the company developing the property by providing incentives that included reimbursements for putting in a traffic signal on Broadway, making changes to the median and realigning the intersection.

Stormy weather isn’t limited to outdoors

Now that I am officially starting my 19th year in Colorado, I think I am finally appreciating the finicky and unpredictable weather that blesses us every season of every year. Maybe it’s my short or foggy memory, but I cannot seem to remember a season with more weather fluctuation since I have moved here. I have traveled professionally and frequently since relocating here from New Jersey years ago, so maybe 2014 is just another typical and ever-changing year here in colorful Colorado, and I’m just not used to all the seasonal changes and storms. But, it’s really not the weather that I want to talk about today, as crazy and volatile as it may be. Instead, I want to focus on another topic that could be considered just as wild and sometimes as unpredictable … our children. As another Father’s Day has come and gone, I am reminded of the roller-coaster ride of parenting my own children over these past 25 years. My youngest will hit 20 in September, so I will officially be out of the teenage era. You know — the one where we move from being seen as smart, brave, funny, and even from time to time goofy mom or dad … to that place where children become embarrassed to be seen with us, deny our existence, and find our sense of humor less funny with each passing corny joke or request for them to pull their pants up above the waist. But I digress. If you are a parent, a friend of parent, an outsider looking in on a parenting situation, then you know exactly what that crazy and unpredictable forecast looks like during those teenage years — don’t you? “Mostly sunny today with a chance of drama,” or “Clear skies in the morning with a lack of respect and appreciation showing up around 3 p.m.” And then there is always this one: “The wind will pick up in the early evening, bringing with it a storm front of entitlement and selfishness.” I find a certain beauty and wonder when experiencing the changes in attitudes and behaviors of my children. It is exasperating at times, almost to the point where I’d consider quitting the job of being a dad. But it is also an incredible blessing that keeps me on my toes, astounds me with both their exciting events and little achievements, and it fills me with pride to be a dad even in the midst of their drama, life challenges and experiences, and just every time I am blessed enough to lay my eyes upon them. So let’s remember that crazy, wild, volatile, and unpredictable storms of life will happen. Not may happen, but will happen. And when we embrace the chaos and challenges that our children bring us, love them unconditionally anyway, our umbrella of love will get us through any storm that comes our way. What’s your forecast looking like? I would love to hear all about it at gotonorton@gmail.com. And as we see our storms as blessings, it really will be a better than good week.

Welcoming a familiar face to a new place It is a pleasure to welcome Drew Litton to our opinion pages beginning this week. Drew was a staple with the Rocky Mountain News for 26 years until it ceased publication in 2009. Many of us kept up with him through the web, seeing his postings on Facebook and his website. A few months back, I learned Drew was moving back to the Denver area, and I reached out to him. Drew jumped at the opportunity to be printed in our 20 weekly community newspapers with 180,000 plus circulation and on our

19 websites. Drew agrees with me that the community newspaper business is the place to be due to our unique content and close connection with the communities we serve. I gave Drew no real direction in terms of the topics he will draw. For the most part, expect it to be sports related as he has done in the past. His work will give us a better understanding of how many of us feel about a topic. One drawing and a few words can often trigger our brains to reflect and think

about Drew’s position on a topic. Some will connect, others not. But the goal of any good cartoonist like Drew is for readers to think, smile, learn and yes, even ponder. Bringing Drew onto our opinion pages will do just that. Welcome to our newspapers and websites, Drew. Count me in as someone looking forward to seeing your work here in Colorado again on a more regular basis. — Jerry Healey, publisher

Most not ready to live on less Regardless of whether it is job loss or retirement, most people are not ready to live on less. When my parents retired 40 years ago, it was understood you would live on less. These days, that is unheard of. Why the change? Two of the main culprits are debt and lifestyle. Most retirees in the 1970s did not have house payments, or rarely ever owned more than one house in their lifetimes. Nowadays it is common for homeowners to move about every seven years. Usually people incur more debt when they move often, as they are usually buying up. Interest rates have been low for over a decade. This provides an opportunity to borrow more than perhaps you should. The standard of living for the average American has changed dramatically in 40 years. Larger paychecks and higher earnings on investments along with home equity have helped fuel richer lifestyles. As people approach retirement, they are not willing to give up that nice lifestyle just yet. A third factor is health. People retiring at age 65 today are generally healthier and have a longer life expectancy than prior generations. Therefore they want to do more in retirement, and this involves costs associated with travel, sports and hobbies. Then there is the other end of the health spectrum. Those with deteriorating health are spending significantly more than prior generations to receive good health care. Based on the 2014 Retirement Confidence Survey¹, we are less prepared for retirement than a year ago, but feel better about it. Part of this better feeling could be assoc iated with an improving economy and increases in the 401(k) balance. However, in reality, most workers are behind on savings. “A third of workers

with a retirement plan have more than $100,000 saved while only 3 percent of those without a retirement plan have more than $100,000 saved. Nearly three-quarters of those without a retirement plan have saved less than $1,000.”¹

This would indicate you are better off funding a retirement plan and consistently investing over long periods of time. Another finding of the study was that people who plan save more. Therefore, watching your spending, saving and investing and planning in advance are good guidelines to improve your future. This could mean that people learn to curb their appetite for a higher standard of living while they are working so they can have a normal standard of living when they are retired.

So close, yet so far away from it all “Martha, this writer, all he does is complain, complain.” Not today, Martha. We just went for a walk, and it’s impossible to complain after a walk on the greenbelt with a dachshund. Our greenbelt isn’t exactly “Wind in the Willows,” but it’s close. I have seen coyotes and foxes and their menu (rabbits), snakes, and once, a divine miracle: three deer. I can’t figure out how they got here. I think they took a cab. Smitty is short, so we go for short walks — two, three, or four a day, if he approves of the weather. Smitty’s weather window is very small. No snow, no rain, and it can’t be very cold or very hot. But it can be at 2 or 3 a.m., when I like to get up and start writing or painting, especially in the summer when it is too hot to do anything at 2 or 3 p.m. The greenbelt sidewalk is east-west, so we can walk into the sunrise, and sometimes it is coral and spectacular. We try to go for a walk before I read the morning paper. The daily news

changes everything. Usually whatever serenity I gained over night goes away until it’s bedtime again. I don’t go fishing, but I have a theory that walking a dog is a lot like fishing. It’s not a high-minded purpose, but there are objectives. Fishermen have told me that they don’t have to catch anything to enjoy the experience. Walking a dog is just like that. About all Smitty does is smell things, and relieve himself. That may not sound like much, but it accomplishes two things: It makes him happy and it makes me happy. If the weather isn’t acceptable, Smitty does his toiletries, as it were, indoors, and gener-

ally in my studio. When I bought the house, the greenbelt wasn’t on my mind. It’s no more than a sidewalk that connects one street with another, but it’s quite long and it rolls. There is a handsome clump of shrubs, bushes, and stumpy trees that change colors year-round. The greenbelt from street to street is wide and almost — almost — gives the illusion that you are living a long way from a metropolis. I am sure the home owners had to pay more for their houses than I did for mine. My house just looks out over Carl and Edna. I can watch dream house television programs now, and no longer be envious. I used to subscribe to “Architectural Digest” and sit there and weep. Who needs that? I came to the conclusion that I am lucky to have my gray suburban tract house. I think we all reach a point of acceptance. I certainly didn’t understand that when I was in my 20s, 30s, and 40s. More, better, bigger, newer. But that is

all gone now. Now it’s mostly maintenance, repair and replace. My house is 21 years old. The builders didn’t do us any favors. Just about all of the viscera has been replaced. Some of it, like the sump pump, wasn’t taken care of before it went berserk. While I was in New York. I came home and found a pond in the basement. When I bought the house I bought the floor plan and the bottom line. I looked at the layout, liked it, and looked at the total cost, and liked that. Everything was new, so I was blind to things like the quality of the fixtures and the flooring, the cabinets, the water heater, the furnace. But they did keep just enough of Mother Nature to enable Smitty and me to start the day — and end it — with a few fine moments of serenity.

Littleton will also be engaging in a station area master plan process funded by a Denver Regional Council of Governments grant this fall. Meanwhile, progress continues on other FasTracks projects around the Denver metro region. RTD is building an entire system and each piece is just as vital as the next. I served as the RTD board member on Denver Union Station Project Authority. RTD just celebrated a huge milestone with the opening of the Union Station Transit Center last month. In July, the grand opening of the historic building will take place and I hope you will visit the project this summer. I am sure you will be excited by the transformation of Denver Union Station.

In 2016, five new RTD lines will open: the East Rail Line to Denver International Airport, the Gold Line to Arvada and Wheat Ridge, the first segment of the Northwest Rail Line to south Westminster (all commuter rail lines); bus rapid transit on U.S. 36 to Boulder; and the Interstate 225 light rail line in Aurora. I would enjoy hearing from you. Please email your comments and questions to me at Kent.Bagley@rtd-denver. com. For more general information, go to www.rtd-denver.com.

FasTracks advances one piece at a time The Southwest Rail Extension is just 2.5 miles, which seems small compared to other FasTracks lines under construction all over the Denver metro region. However, this proposed light rail extension between Mineral Station and the intersection of Lucent Boulevard and C-470 is an important connection for so many. The Southwest Rail Extension is one of almost a dozen projects RTD is planning to build under its 2004 voterapproved FasTracks transit expansion program — the largest in the country. The program is adding 122 miles of new light rail and commuter rail service. People commuting from Mineral Station know how popular this line is. I often hear how folks have to get to the station before 7 a.m. to secure a parking spot in the spill-over lot across the street from the station’s paved lot. They have to arrive even earlier to park in the paved lot. Every day, almost 4,300 people board at Mineral, the Southwest Rail Line’s current end-of-line station. Adding an extension would give our customers more parking, more options and more connections. That’s why I champion the Southwest Rail Extension. I’ve been on the RTD Board of Directors since 2008 and have seen other FasTracks projects go from having little to no funding to breaking ground because of partnerships, innovative financing and good leadership. I see the same for this project in the future. Ten years ago, all of the metro mayors — regardless of political affiliations — stood together in a unified front to support FasTracks. I’m hoping this same can-do spirit will be conveyed on the Southwest Rail Extension. It was a bold undertaking to get FasTracks on the ballot then, and it will take the same bold leadership to get the Southwest Rail Extension built.

This can be very difficult if the paycheck continues to increase and investments continue to grow. However, we don’t have much control that earnings at work or on investments are sustainable. We only have control over how we live. It may be time to get your plan established so you can have a better future. This will help regardless of why or when you lose the paycheck.

RTD staff and I have been working with stakeholders over the last year to determine ways to move this project forward. Douglas County, Shea Properties, Englewood McClellan Reservoir Foundation, Highlands Ranch Metro District, the Highlands Ranch Community Association and the cities of Littleton and Englewood are all important players in getting this project completed. I’ve also met one-on-one with various stakeholders. Some of the ideas that have been mentioned for completing the Southwest Extension include issuing certificates of participation — a method of financing that was used to get the North Metro Rail Line project moving forward. Another methodology is exploring the feasibility of tax-increment financing (TIF) districts, which is one of the funding mechanisms for Denver Union Station. Even though the Southwest Rail Extension is unfunded now, activity continues to happen around the future Lucent Station. At the future end-of-line station at Lucent, Douglas County is working on a Station Area Master Plan. Farther north, the City of Littleton is looking at what the future holds for the 17-acre Mineral Station. Littleton and RTD have recruited a team from the Urban Land Institute to visualize future scenarios for the light-rail station parking lot and the surrounding area south of Mineral Avenue and north of the Park-n-Ride lot.

OBITUARIES Harmon

Jacob “Jake” Lindley Harmon Sept. 21, 1921 – June 4, 2014

Jacob (Jake) Lindley Harmon passed away in Bozeman, Montana on June 4, 2014 at the age of 92 at his home at the Bozeman Lodge. Throughout his life he seemed to create a cherished memory with each person he touched. Born in Milan, Missouri on September 15, 1921, Jake was the first child of Golda B. Harmon and Ernest L. Harmon. On September 24, 1923 he became the older brother to Francis Leighton Harmon. Jake’s early years were spent on his dad’s farm helping with chores, trapping for income and living a farm kid’s life. In 1942 he enlisted in the United States Marine Corps and served in the South Pacific during World War II, achieving the rank of 2nd Lieutenant. After the War, he enrolled in Kansas City College of Osteopathy and Surgery, graduating from medical school in 1950. On June 10, 1948 Jake married Alice Elizabeth Futty and later became the father of two children, Victoria Carol Harmon and Jeffrey Jay Harmon. Throughout his career, Jake practiced family medicine in Lakewood and Englewood, Colorado, until his retirement in 1992. He was a member of the

American Osteopathic Association. Jake joined The Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints and enjoyed the many blessings that it brought into his life. On July 15, 1981 Jake married his second wife, Nancy B. Peery, and became the beloved step-father, grandfather, and friend to her children and grandchildren. A year later he and Nancy were sealed together for time and all eternity in the Jordan River Temple. They moved from Littleton, Colorado to Hemet, California in 2001 to be closer to family. Throughout his life, Jake was steadfastly devoted to his family and to people who needed medical care. Jake was known for his witty sense of dry humor, was a great listener and a wise and pensive man, but seldom offered his advice to others unless asked to do so. Jake was an avid golfer, teacher of life, fly fisherman, and a gourmet cook.

He taught all of his children what they most wanted to know, and in his caring way, achieved an endearing status among them. For this reason, his earthly presence will be deeply missed. He is survived by his daughter, Victoria Carol Faeo of Wasilla, Alaska; his son, Jeffery Jay Harmon of Bozeman, Montana; his step-daughter, Janelle Brown of Temecula, California; his step-son, Donald Eyssen, of San Marcos, Texas; and his two grandsons, Skylar and Jordan Brown; his nephew, David L. Harmon; and his nieces, Pam Shippam, Janet Ross, and Cathy Romero. Jake was preceded in death by his wife, Nancy B. Harmon; brother, Francis Leighton Harmon; and niece, Carrie Harmon. A service and celebration of his life will be held in Hemet, California on Monday June 16th at 11:00 a.m. Interment will follow at Riverside National Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, the family has requested a donation be made to the Parkinson’s Disease Association, 500 15th Ave. South, Great Falls, MT 59405. Arrangements are in the care of Dokken-Nelson Funeral Service. www.dokkennelson.com

Arapahoe High needs help to rebuild library Student-led design approved, construction underway

ARAPAHOE HIGH SCHOOL LIBRARY DESIGN COMMITTEE

By Jennifer Smith

Natalie Pramenko, AHS principal Bryan Jesse, AHS assistant principal Karl Fisch, AHS director of technology Tracy Murphy, AHS media specialist Karla Brachtenbach Brian Webb Ian Barber Addie Callahan, AHS Class of 2014 representative Rachel Ledesma, AHS Class of 2015 representative Austin Brumley, AHS Class of 2016 representative Nicole Seavall, AHS Class of 2017 representative

jsmith@coloradocommunitymedia.com In the days after Dec. 13, 2013, the windows of the Arapahoe High School library were covered in black paper to shield the students from seeing the place where Karl Pierson killed himself after fatally shooting classmate Claire Davis. “Students didn’t like walking past and seeing the black,” said Nicole Seavall, who will be a sophomore at AHS next year. Cris Goldy’s kids were among those students. A senior project manager at GH Phipps Construction Companies, he jumped in to make things better. “He contacted us right away,” said Diane Doney, Littleton Public Schools chief operations officer. “GH Phipps was just remarkable. They starting demoing before school was even out, at night.” They took that library down to an empty shell, and then took down the black. “It felt better,” said Seavall. “We knew that we were all moving forward.” Now Seavall is part of an effort to reclaim that space in time for school to start in midAugust. She and other students and staff began meeting when school resumed after the holidays, determined to find a way to honor Claire without commemorating the tragedy. “We didn’t want it to be a huge memorial to what happened,” said Seavall. “We didn’t want it to be focused on that.” The answer, they found, was fellowship. “We just wanted a place for students to be the Arapahoe Warriors and still be together in this one space,” said Seavall. So the new library will be filled with lots of ways and places the kids can commune, along with natural light and warm colors. “We wanted to keep with AHS colors, but not too overwhelming,” said Seavall, who handled a lot of the interior-design details. Small-group rooms let students work together on projects where they can be a little

louder than in the rest of the library. One cafe-like space lets them bring in coffee and maybe a snack, keeping them fueled up for studying. Individual carels will be wired for charging electronic devices, so even if students are sitting alone, they can still stay in touch. One area has soft, comfy chairs for collapsing in, and another has long tables for sharing. “A lot of students wanted to be with their friends, but still get stuff done,” said Seavall. And there will be books, of course. But the shelves will be low enough so students can see each other over them, and so library staff can see them all, as well. Tracy Murphy will be returning as a member of that staff, and he was a member of the library committee. Pierson fired a shot into Murphy’s empty office before shooting himself, according to former sheriff Grayson Robinson. The new library will offer gentle nods of remembrance to that day. Every student who attended AHS on the day of the shootings signed a memory book, which the committee intends to place in a time capsule somewhere in the library. And a large compass is elevated over the center of the room, to remind students to “keep moving forward and find your direction of learning,” said Seavall. Nobody could have anticipated the need for a new library last November, when the

ballot issue that allowed the district to ramp up capital projects was approved and the list of projects was finalized. Insurance covered some of the cost, and local firms are donating time and materials “This is an amazing effort,” said Nancy Seavall, Nicole’s proud mom. She’s heading up the fundraising committee and says the community’s help is needed to make up about $1 million. “Any donation amount makes a difference and is valued,” she wrote in a letter to the LPS community. “When you donate $500 or more, you will be given the opportunity to

have an artistic rendering of a book spine with an inscription of your choice added to a permanent feature in the library.” Her daughter says she’s proud that everyone got to have some input on the design, further unifying them as Warriors. “It’s so cool that we get have everyone’s voice in this project,” she said. “It’s our library, not just the committee’s library. It’s everyone’s.” For more information or to donate, visit LPSFoundation.com.

In a summer groove

Hudson Gardens gets ready for busy season By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe @coloradocommunitymedia.com When we visited Hudson Gardens and Event Center several weeks ago, it was poised to start a busy summer: The concert stage was in place, ready for the series of Sunday evening concerts that draw fans from across the metro area. The two garden canopies that house weddings and special events had fresh plantings around them and newly polished floors. Water lilies awaited planting, sheltered in the Hoop House as the water gardens were edged with stone and deepened a bit. Plantings near the edges were burned off last year and regrowth has turned the area green again with hardy perennials. When the Water Gardens were first designed by horticulturist Andrew Pierce, he drew inspiration from Monet’s garden at Giverny — its ponds and streams filled with colorful water lilies. A nearby wedding site is named “Monet’s Place.” Monet’s huge water lily paintings are probably his most famous — the Denver Art Museum owns one. But in addition to the hardy water lilies, the water garden is home to more than 140 varieties of plants in the water and on the edges. Especially striking is the Mrs. Perry D. Slocum lotus, also known as Sacred Lotus. A native of China, it stands four feet tall and has striking blossoms that last three days: pink at first, changing to yellow by the third and last day. After that, a characteristic seed pod develops. Lilies and lotuses are held in pots in the nearby hoop house and then rooted in the dirt at the pond’s bottom. Their leaves provide shade for a number of critters: frogs, toads, minnows and tadpoles who feed on resident insects and tiny plant life. Children are fascinated when they spot a fat frog sunning on a lily pad. The aquatic plants are planted and maintained by dedicated volunteers from the Colorado Water Garden Society, led by Bob Hoffman. They also care for

The water garden area has been renovated and is ready to receive water lilies grown in the Hoop House. the giant Victoria lilies in a higher pond near the entrance and Oval Garden. More than 10 types of trees line the water gardens, including some native cottonwoods and peach-leaf willows, left from the time when the river channel ran through this area. Nearby is the comparatively new Songbird Garden, installed last season, with plants that supply food for a variety of birds, both migrating and resident. Monthly bird walks are found on Hudson Gardens’ calendar. This area provides the essential attractions for songbirds: food, water and shelter. It’s one of a number of small sanctuaries being planted across the country to offer a safe place for songbirds, whose numbers are diminishing as habitat is destroyed. A walk farther north along the path

Daniel L. Ritchie, the “godfather” of Denver theater, has announced his retirement as chief executive officer of the Denver Center for the Performing Arts. Ritchie will continue to serve as chairman of the board of trustees following his retirement as CEO. Ritchie revealed his decision at the June 10 regularly scheduled meeting of the trustees and then to a meeting of DCPA employees. He also is sending a letter to the customers and donors whose support of the DCPA has been the foundation of its success. “This is the right moment for me to step aside and for a new CEO to guide the DCPA into its bright future,” Ritchie said. “The DCPA is poised to move to a new level of creativity with an even warmer embrace of our audience. My full energy will now be focused on board matters, including the campaign to reauthorize the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District in 2016.” Ritchie joined the DCPA in 2007 as CEO and chairman of the board. Upon his appointment, the board and Ritchie concluded that the two positions should ultimately be separated. Today’s announcement completes that plan. Ritchie, who was known as “Dapper Dan” for his sharp attire, led the DCPA through a period of dynamic creative growth and to financial success. Under his leadership, the DCPA expanded its new-play development program, launched three national Broadway touring premieres, conducted two successful matching-gift fundraising campaigns, and served more than 400,000 students through its extensive theatre education programs. He also has been instrumental in diversifying the DCPA’s programming with the development of Off-Center @ The Jones, an experimental theater designed to make theater less formal, more fun, decidedly innovative and appealing to new audiences. Ritchie has made generous personal financial donations to the DCPA and has served without pay as CEO during his entire tenure. But I will remember him most for his “performances” to raise money for DCPA endeavors. One year for Saturday Night Alive, the DCPA’s granddaddy fundraiser, Ritchie embraced his inner rock star with overthe-top enthusiasm. He appeared in a full costume as former Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash. A search will begin immediately for Ritchie’s successor. He will remain as CEO until his successor has joined the organization and he will work with the new CEO during a period of transition.

Studio jumps on chance for chants Tibetan monks bless Young Voices facility By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe @coloradocommunitymedia.com The connection started with Jena Dickey’s chance meeting, at the Boulder Creek Festival in Boulder, with Tamdin Wangdu, who heads the Tibetan Village Project in Westminster. He was planning to host three Tibetan monks who were to travel in the U.S. for three months. While two of them had achieved Ph.D. status and the third was studying for his doctorate, none had traveled or flown before. Jampa Norby, Lobsang Choephel and Kaldor (one name only) live and study at the Sera Monastery in Mysore, India, which was established after the 1959 revolution in Tibet, where the original monastery was badly damaged and many monks were killed. These men study and travel to help the world better understand Buddhism. They said they are up at 5 a.m. and work until midnight, mostly studying Tibetan language and religion. Jena Dickey, director of the Young Voices of Colorado children’s choirs, had the opportunity to invite the three men to visit

Young Voices of Colorado’s studio is located at 9294 Inverness Drive East, Suite 50, in unincorporated Arapahoe County. Rehearsals are held there weekly during the school year.

(They also blessed Brookside Inn, an assisted-care home in Castle Rock.) Dickey was interested in Tibet because she and Chrys Harris of the Young Voices staff had contributed $900 each to send a Tibetan student to a university to study medicine, with the objective of opening small local clinics where there are none. On short notice, five of Dickey’s choristers were able to be at the studio to show the monks how they learn to sing, she said. The traveling monks, who are not familiar with written music notation, but learn by doing, sang three chants: one to call in the Buddah to help; one to bless the structure and people in it; and one for world

Next in the summer for Dickey and staff will be “Sing a Mile High,” a choral festival that will bring in a number of children’s choirs from across the nation. They will train and sing separately and together, learning a newly commissioned work, “Hope is For the Thing With Feathers,” which the whole group will sing in a final concert after five days of training.

‘Prairie Grace’ makes cut for book finals Novel explores life in 1860s Colorado By Tom Munds

tmunds @coloradocommunitymedia.com Author Marilyn Bay Wentz said she was honored that her novel about Colorado history, “Prairie Grace,” was selected by Colorado Humanities & Center for the Book as one of three finalists for Colorado Book Award in the historical fiction category. “Prairie Grace” is the author’s first historical novel. She chose to set in the Colorado Territory in 1860s. “Actually the bare bones of this novel came from a story I wrote as a 12-year-old,” the area resident said. “I love to write, and a couple years ago, I looked at that story, started to expand it. The story began to develop and inspired me to do a huge amount

of research and work. The result was the seeds that were the short story became my first novel.” Wentz’s novel blends details about geography, facts about historic figures and the challenges the characters face trying to live and deal with the huge differences in the cultures and ways of life of the white settlers and the indigenous population. The plot of her book moves quickly as she paints a vivid word picture of how members of the pioneer family, the McBayes, dealt with life on the plains east of Denver and living with the American Indian tribes in the area. Wentz smoothly shifts the scene to write about details of the traditions and village life of the Cheyenne. The story intertwines the lives of settler Georgia McBaye and Cheyenne brave Gray Wolf. The author weaves the threads of the story of their lives, friendship and love for each other into the historically accurate

picture of life in eastern Colorado in 186264. The author said the book is fiction but follows accurately the history of the Colorado Territory and what life was like in the area in and around Denver while the Civil War raged in the eastern United States. She creates her fictional characters but also introduces the reader to many people from the history books, such as Gov. John Evans and Arapaho Chief Black Kettle. The story details many of the events involving violence by settlers and by American Indians. The book also covers many aspects of the circumstances leading up to the Sand Creek Massacre, where Col. John Chivington led an assault of Colorado volunteers in an attack on an encampment of peaceful Arapaho and Cheyenne Indians. Around Denver the attack was initially hailed as a great victory, but further investigation showed the volunteer soldiers killed about 150 American Indians, most of them

women and children. Wentz also weaves elements of her strong Christian belief into the novel without making that the focus of the story. The author said she would make few changes in the book except, if she had it to do over, she would like to have an American Indian advisor to help her more accurately write about the culture and customs of the tribes. Wentz is currently working with her mother on a book with a working title, “The Sheep Story.” She said she also is starting work on her next novel, which will deal with the history of the San Luis Valley. The author grew up on a farm near Eaton and now lives near Strasburg. She has written articles and news releases for farming and livestock organizations. The avid gardener raises lambs and raises and trains horses, but still finds time to devote to her literary pursuits.

‘Graduate’ a little too up-close and personal Play overwhelms audience in small setting at Edge By Sonya Ellingboe sellingboe @coloradocommunitymedia.com Edge Theater offers the second of a pair of plays about randy older women with its production of a classic example: “The Graduate,” adapted by well-known, award-winning British playwright Terry Johnson from the screenplay by Calder Willingham and Buck Henry and the novel by Charles Webb. Leads Chandler Darby as Benjamin Braddock and Patty Ionoff as Mrs. Robinson offer solid performances, although this is one movie that perhaps doesn’t lend itself so well to a small theater where action so very much right in your face. In any case, possible subtleties are lost. Ionoff is an experienced performer and Darby just graduated

from the excellent program at University of Northern Colorado. The script calls for a mix of angry fathers charging about and one ditzy mother — plus Mrs. Robinson’s daughter Elaine, who actually is the one Benjamin falls in love with. Talented young Adrian Egolf plays Elaine, while Max Cabot portrays her father, Mr. Braddock’s business partner and husband of the legendary Mrs. Robinson. Mr. Braddock is played by Randy Diamon, while Suzanna Wellens is Benjamin’s frantic mother. Each of these parental types is given to overacting — expressing anger and emotional upset by stomping about and yelling their lines, which gives an amateurish flavor to the production. Perhaps director Rick Yaconis can tone them down a bit? Recent college graduate Benjamin has scholarship offers and seems slated for a bright future, but he’s worrying about his future and unhappy.

He hides out in his room — in his new diving suit and flippers. The alcoholic Mrs. Robinson appears in his doorway and starts making a move. Matters progress/ regress from there, as readers will recall from the film. The set includes several clever variations on the beds called for in the script, but all the scene changes are a bit too busy and distracting. Perhaps that fault is in the script’s requirements. Other cast members, who play multiple parts smoothly, are Bevin Antea, Dana Hart Lubeck and Peter Marullo.

if you Go “The Graduate” plays through June 29 at The Edge Theater, 1560 Teller St. in Lakewood. Performances: 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays; 6 p.m. Sundays. Tickets: $24, theedgetheater.com, 303-232-0363.

Pair of seniors shine on diamond Leonard, Farrell named South Metro Baseball Players of the Year By Jim Benton jbenton @coloradocommunitymedia.com Any baseball team with an ace pitcher like Nick Leonard and a hitter like outfielder Grant Farrell should be good. Leonard, the senior right-hander from Mountain Vista, has been tabbed as the Colorado Community Media South Metro Pitcher of the Year. Cherry Creek senior Farrell was selected as the Player of the Year. “There’s not a bad thing I can say about Nick,” said Mountain Vista coach Ron Quintana. “He worked hard in the offseason and obviously it paid off. He was a bulldog on the mound. He controlled all his pitches. On a bad day, he would have eight or nine strikeouts. “The difference between last year and this year is he had his off-speed working. He had command of his off speed, his curve ball and splitter.” Leonard, who will play next season at Washington State, led the Continental League with a 0.88 ERA and an 8-3 record. In 40.1 innings pitched, he had 105 strikeouts, which also was tops in the Continental League. “It’s quite an honor to be South Metro Pitcher of the Year,” said Leonard. “It was almost like a comeback year for me. Last year as junior I struggled quite a bit at the end of the year and in the playoffs. This year I felt real good to help my team out through the course of the season and in the playoffs. “I definitely improved in all facets of my game, location wise and velocity wise. The biggest difference was having a little more velocity on my fastball, more depth on my curve ball and the addition of a splitter as

File photo ABOVE: Cherry Creek outfielder Grant Farrell is Colorado Community Media’s South Metro Baseball Player of the Year. Courtesy photo a third pitch helped me carry deeper into games.” The heater was still Leonard’s out pitch. “My fastball has primarily been my out pitch,” said Leonard. “It’s the one I’m most comfortable with. I spotted it up where I need to for the most part. I liked it because at this level sometimes I could use it to overpower guys. Occasionally I’d get good three, four and five hitters and I had to go to the off-speed a little bit. I used my splitter sometimes as an out pitch, getting guys to chase that. Right now it’s still in a developmental stage and is more of a groundball pitch.” Farrell, who will play next season at

Creighton, wasn’t fooled too many times by high school pitchers. He hit .513 with 31 runs batted in and an .815 slugging percentage. He struck out just six times in 95 plate appearances, had eight stolen bases, a .576 on base percentage and didn’t make an error in leftfield. In six state playoff games for the Bruins, Farrell hit .571 as he collected 12 hits in 21 at-bats. “He’s an unbelievable player,” said Creek coach Marc Johnson. “He works hard and gives 110 percent effort at all time. He loves to play. He was pretty steady all year. He elevated his game in the playoffs.”

Mountain Vista and Creek both made it to the final four. Leonard and Farrell were influential in their team’s success. “I just wanted to do anything I could to help my team win,” said Farrell. “I was getting good pitches to hit and I was seeing the ball well. “In the offseason I worked hard in the weight room and tried to get stronger to hit with more power for doubles and triples. I didn’t try to do too much all year because I knew my teammates had my back.” Farrell finished his senior season with six doubles, five triples and three home runs.

Littleton’s Stringy hangs up his whistle Long-time swim coach retires to end 49-year career By Tom Munds

tmunds @coloradocommunitymedia.com Maurice “Stringy” Ervin warned that just because he retired this year doesn’t mean you won’t continue to see him around the Littleton High School. “I am not a sit-back-and-rest kind of guy,” the long-time Littleton coach said. “Summers are always about tending the garden and working on my antique cars. But after the summer, I’ll stay busy. For example, I’ll still be keeping time at the football games plus I’ll be around watching swimming. While I did officially retire, I’ll still spend a lot of time at the school.” He said has only been coaching girls swimming for the last few years but recently been looking for the right time to retire. “I felt I wanted to give up coaching but I didn’t want to feel I deserted the swimmers so I was looking for the right circumstances to bow out,” he said. “This year, a lot of things fell into place. There was a strong junior class last season that, as seniors, will provide strong leadership for the team. “Also, things are changing as the swimmers are going to a different league and other changes were happening in high school swimming. I just felt it was the opportunity I had been looking for so I put in my retirement papers.” The coach said he wrote a letter to the

members of the girls swimming team, explaining his decision before he told the administration he would be retiring. “I wanted my swimmers to be the first to know about my decision and why I decided to make it at this time,” he said. “Also, I didn’t want the swimmers who would be coming back to the team to think I abandoned them.” Ervin began his coaching career in 1965 at what is now Skyview High School. He was there for three years until his alma mater invited him to return to Littleton High School as a teacher and coach in 1968. “I was an assistant coach for basketball and football at Littleton. Since the school didn’t have a head swimming coach, I volunteered to take the position too,” he said. “I had never competed in swimming and I had never coached the sport so I had a lot to learn. I did a lot of research, read a lot of books and learned right along with my swimmers.” He coached boys swimming for 40 years and coached girls swimming for about 30 years. He guided Lions teams to seven state boys swimming championships including a string of five championships in a row from 1980 to 1984. Also, under his tutelage, five Littleton teams have won state girls swimming championships. The most recent win came in 2000. The coach said never cut any boy or girl who came out for swimming on the team, wanting to make sure the team included anyone who wanted to be part it. “Every team I ever coached and every kid on those teams were special,” Ervin said. “I have great memories about kids

Maurice “Stringy” Ervin calls out instruction to the members of the Littleton girls swimming team. Ervin completed the season before announcing he was retiring after 49 years of coaching, 46 of those at Littleton High. File photo

and teams I worked with over the years.” He said it was a special experience when, before he officially retired, a reception held in his honor. “I guess there were about 300 people at the reception,” he said. “A lot of the swimmers I coached were there and I had a great time chatting with them and talking about our seasons together.” Ervin coached for 49 years in total, 46 of them at Littleton High. He said the school has been a part of his life almost as long as he can remember. “My dad was the principal and, as a kid,

I probably spent more time at the school than I did at home,” he said. “I think I went to every athletic practice and even was a ball boy for some of the teams.” Ervin played football, basketball and baseball for the Lions. He went to Fort Lewis College, then a two-year school, to play football. He sustained a knee injury and, when he tried to make a comeback, he reinjured the knee, ending his football career. He earned his bachelor’s degree in English at Fort Lewis, as it morphed into a four-year school, and, after graduation.

It dawned on Michelle Romano before her senior year that golf just might be her bag. Romano, who just graduated from Rock Canyon, was the medalist in the Northern Regional this spring and then went on to win the Class 5A State High School Girls individual championship on the first playoff hole over Arapahoe’s Hannah Wood. She has also taken top honors as Colorado Community Media Female Golfer of the Year. “I would definitely call myself an underdog,” said Romano. “Once I decided this is what I want to do, (I said) I have one year left and I might as well put in all my effort. I put in as much time as I possibly could to try to go out there and win. “When regional came around it gave me a little bit of confidence that I do deserve to be at the state tournament and I do have a chance of winning. I did feel I had as much talent as everybody else. Just getting it through my head that I did deserve to be at state and I did deserve to win was what that was probably keeping me from playing better in the past.” Romano, bound for the University of Colorado-Colorado Springs to play golf, fashioned an even-par 71 to win the Northern Regional at Highland Meadows April 28 but still didn’t draw much attention as a possible favorite heading into the state tournament May 19-20 at Littleton’s Raccoon Creek. She faltered a bit in the final three holes during the final round but still tied Wood for first with a 153 two-round total after rounds of 78 and 75. Romano then shot a par on the first playoff hole, giving her the state championship. “I started playing golf my freshman year in high school and never thought I would be here,” Romano said while accepting congratulations on her state tourney win. “It hasn’t exactly sunk in but winning the tournament meant that I put in the best effort that I could and it paid off. At state last year when I tied for seventh, it was a big deal and gave me hope that I could possibly come back this year and give everyone a run for their money.” Romano helped Rock Canyon finish second in the team standings and her performance didn’t surprise coach Dave Vahling one bit. “She plays but doesn’t play a whole lot like Hannah Wood or (Cherry Creek’s) Calli Ringsby,” explained Vahling. “She plays in tournaments but really decided this season that she wanted to win the state tournament. I had the girls fill out a thing, what’s your goal this year? And she put it down. She started off a little slow and then really started working on it. “About a month before state, she started getting it together. It finally clicked that hey, it’s time to get it to the next level. nity. She can hit the ball a long way. She’s very accurate with her shots, it’s just a little bit of inconsistency and the driver gets away from her once in a while. When she’s hitting it, I envy her to the most because she hits it so well. And her irons are so crisp.”

Event benefits fallen-officer fund More than 350 take part in Jeremy Bitner Memorial run and walk By Tom Munds

tmunds @coloradocommunitymedia.com Men, women and children gathered at Cornerstone Park June 14 to take part in the 2014 Jeremy Bitner Fallen Officer Fund Run and Walk. Money raised for the Bitner Fallen Officer Fund will be used to assist families of officers who sacrificed their lives in the line of duty. A total of 358 people signed to take part in one of the runs or walks that were part of the event. Each person registered to take part in the 10-kilometer run, the 5k run or the 5k walk. There was even an unmeasured short walk for the children. “I want to thank you all for coming out here today,” Tina Bitner, Jeremy’s widow, told all those gathered to take part in the event. “I know Jeremy is smiling as he looks down on us today. I am proud and grateful that so many people are here to remember Jeremy and raise money to help the family of the next fallen officer.” She said the second anniversary of her husband’s death has recently passed but she still thinks of him every day and the fact so many people came for the memorial means they think of him and remember him too. “I wish there were no more fallen officers but, when it does happen, pray for the officer’s family, pray they will receive the great

to join in an effort to get to 70 percent. When that happens, she said, the board will likely approach council with a request to make the district mandatory.

support and assistance I have received,” she said. The Martinez family, Jason, his wife Alicia and their daughters, 10-year-old Eliana and 8-year-old Eva were at the event with Alicia and Eliana running the five-kilometers. “Eliana started with Girls on the Run. We run together some and now we are going to give the 5K a try,” she said. “We came last year and we will continue to come to support the memorial because it is such a great local cause.” Littleton resident Mia Henderson also took part in the 5K run and said it was fun. “I run a lot and I do it because I have fun

running,” she said after she crossed the finish line. “Running feels good and gives me a lot of energy. I just like it and it’s extremely fun. It was good to run today for such a worthy cause.” This is the second year for the event. Last year, hundreds of feet followed the marked trails to raise money for the fallen officer fund. Englewood Police Officer Chad Read, one of the organizers, said the turnout was about the same as last year. “It’s a great day. We have a lot of people volunteer to help, we have a lot of runners and walkers sign up and we had perfect weather for the event,” he said. “This cause is to sup-

port the Bitner family but Tina is so generous she wants the money to help families of other fallen officers too.” The event is held in memory of Englewood Detective Jeremy Bitner. Bitner, a Centennial resident, died May 28, 2012 when, while he was making a traffic stop, he suffered fatal injuries when he was hit by a car with a drunken driver at the wheel. Bitner had been with the Englewood Police Department for eight years. He was a patrol officer, member of the SWAT team and served as a training officer for new members of the department. He is survived by his wife and two children.

There are 38 owners total in the district, which is limited to Main Street from Santa Fe Drive east to the Littleton Courthouse. Twenty-two have opted in so far, leaving just five more to get to 70 percent. “As we move toward that critical mass, we feel it’s important for everyone to be playing on the same field,” said Reid.

Benefits of joining, other than qualifying for the new state tax credits, include eased parking requirements and the city’s grant program for façade and other improvements. HPB asked council to expand an existing property-tax rebate the city offers to historically designated properties outside the district to properties inside, as

a way to leverage the state’s incentive program. Mayor Phil Cernanec said staff would review the request. “We’ve put some catalysts in there, but we have businesses in other areas of the city as well,” said Cernanec. “It becomes a matter of how much does the city invest.”
