School bond issue heads for ballot LPS board votes 4-0 for move that wouldn’t hike taxes By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@ourcoloradonews. com In a move that surprised no one, the Littleton Public Schools Board of Education voted unanimously and enthusiastically Aug. 29 to place an $80 million bond issue on the November ballot. “It’s not like we’re asking for fluff,” said Bob Colwell, board president. “It’s things that need to be done for safety and the kids.” The vote was 4-0, with board member Mary Nichols absent. Anticipating the outcome, Citizens for Littleton Public Schools registered with the state as an issue committee on July 18. Before the board’s vote, parents Heather Kelly and Amy Kurtz stepped up to lead the charge in the campaign. “We understand the urgency of the work that needs to be

you’re doing,” she said. “You’re very prudent and efficient with our dollars, and we appreciate that.” Superintendent Scott Murphy’s position is that the time is right to take advantage of low interest rates for what amounts to refinancing a mortgage — not a tax increase, he stresses. If voters pass the proposed measure, it will keep the amount of

property tax they pay at about a total of 57 mills. If not, it will drop to about 55.5 mills — a difference of about $1 a month for each $100,000 of the actual value of the property. “I haven’t met anyone who didn’t think this was the right thing to do,” said Murphy, counting among them politicians from both parties and the South Metro Realtors Association. John Brackney, president of the South Metro Denver Chamber of Commerce, voiced the chamber’s strong support for the measure on his Facebook page shortly after the vote. “It isn’t a political issue, it’s an issue of taking care of our community,” said Murphy. “It’s not something to argue about.” The last time LPS went to the voters was in 2010, when they passed a $12 million mill-levy override, or property-tax increase. That money has maintained the district’s current level of service, despite decreases in state and federal funding. Bond revenue can legally only be used for capital

At the end of a five-hour meeting Aug. 26, during which a slew of provocative phrases were tossed about, Littleton’s planning board voted 6-1 to urge rejection of the controversial Broadstone apartment project. “Last time, I think you were on the 60-yard line. This time, I think you’re up to the 80-yard line,” said board member Andrew Graham. “It just wasn’t enough to push it over for me.” The board sent a unanimous unfavorable recommendation to Littleton City Council in June. The developer made some last-minute changes before what was to be the final public hearing on July 30, prompting council to send it back to planning. Lots of citizens are still not happy with the project proposed for the old sheriff’s building site, despite increased setbacks, decreased height, lowered density and promised traffic improvements. “You can take a 150-pound dog and shave it, and it’s still a 150-pound dog,” said Brenda O’Connell, one of about 45 people who were there in opposition. Tom O’Brien, one of a handful of supporters, called the proceedings a “token meeting” and questioned the board member’s motives. “To me, this feels like a mob mentality,” he said. “I guess you guys just go along with the mob.” Stew Meagher, a former planningboard member, said the endless drilling down into the details of the various and sometimes contradictory planning documents governing the site prompted him to get off his couch and show up in person to comment. “Something is going to happen to that site, and this might be the best we ever get,” he said. The developer has changed some minds since the last go-round. This time, chair Randy Duzan supported the project, saying it’s rough around the edges but would support synergy and vibrancy in the downtown area.

Display puts hunger in the picture The 22 8-by-10-inch photographs are simply set in a display case in the airy lobby of the Denver Public Library’s central branch. On an early Saturday afternoon, men and women, old and young, stroll by on the marble floors. A few glance at the images — portrayals of lives lived with hunger — but so far today no one stops. Most never see the stories just beyond the glass, much the way many never see the hunger hidden among us every day. “It’s something I hear a lot since I’ve been talking to people about poverty — `You’re not the average homeless person; you’re not the average hungry person,’” says Caroline Pooler, 53, who came to know hunger and homelessness after losing her job two years ago. Three of the photographs in the case are hers. “There really is no average hungry or homeless person. They can be someone who’s working full-time and they’re not going to get lunch that day because they have to give lunch to their kids.” Caroline and nine other women are participating in Hunger Through My Lens, an innovative project by the advocacy organization Hunger Free Colorado that gave them digital cameras to document how they see a world without consistent and healthy sustenance. The goal is simple, project manager Lauren Flax says: Give the experts, those who know what it’s like to be hungry, a platform to voice their opinions and help shape answers to what should be a solvable issue. “We really believe there is a solution to ending hunger,” Flax says. “Just as there are many solutions, there needs to be multiple people coming up with them. Who better than the hungry?” The women are a diverse group. They are Latino, African-American and white, ranging in age from 22 to late 60s. They are mothers and grandmothers in Jefferson and Adams counties, Denver and Aurora. Some have lived in systemic poverty since they were children. Some live an “average, normal, middle-class life

but they go to bed hungry every night, hiding it even from their church groups,” Flax says. Some have made bad choices, either through lack of education, access to resources or circumstances. But all share the common denominator of having experienced the isolating and desperate hunger that comes when you don’t know how or when you’ll have your next meal. Through their photographs, they hope to provide a glimpse for others — perhaps a dawning understanding — into that world. “It’s a way to put faces to statistics,” Flax says. “It’s easy to forget a number. It’s a lot harder to forget a face or a story.” First, the statistics, compiled from various federal and state reports: • One in six Americans in the U.S., and nearly one in four children, are foodinsecure. • More than 25 percent of working families in Colorado don’t have enough food to meet basic needs. • An estimated 270,000 children in Colorado, or 22 percent of all children, live in food-insecure households. • Colorado has the fastest-growing rate of childhood poverty in the country. The numbers are astonishing. And here are Caroline’s stories, told in her photographs, which she titled: • “Reverse Disparity,” a photograph of two banana clumps. One is full, fresh and smooth yellow, selling for 59 cents a pound in a grocery store in an affluent neighborhood. The other is in a smaller, privately owned grocery 30 blocks away in a neighborhood considered a “food des-

ert” because it has no large supermarkets offering healthy options within a mile. These three bananas are slightly bruised, for sale at 89 cents a pound. “I’m certainly not faulting that grocer,” Caroline says. “We need that grocer in that area.” But lower quality food for higher prices is the reality. • “Farming for Food Sustenance for the Heart.” A close-up of an orange nasturtium, taken in an urban garden in which Caroline was working. “I really did find that while I was on my hands and knees trying to feed myself, people in suits and briefcases were looking in and wishing that was them. I am the lucky one in so many ways,” she says, “pulling my food from the ground.” • “Ancestral Meals.” A photo of a Cambodian family’s ceremonial meal, spread out in bowls and prepared in honor of ancestors for a holiday. “It’s an inside look at the diversity of the culture here in Denver and Colorado and how those cultural food needs must be met as well,” Caroline says. Although Caroline began struggling when she lost her job working in a medical research office, she initially resisted applying for food stamps, turning instead to urban gardening as a way to feed herself. She took the bottle cap- and cigarette-strewn lot of a friend and began tilling and planting the soil until it flowered into an organic garden in which she harvests tomatoes for a nearby bodega, and lettuce, squash, eggplants and green beans for herself. A nonprofit restaurant, which operates on donations, uses her produce to cook her lunch. Local food banks also helped. But last November, one turned her and others away when it ran out of food. The memory still brings tears. “I just walked down the street and cried, more so for the thought of the moms that were turned away.” Shortly after that, she applied for food stamps. And “it has been a blessing to go to the grocery store and really meet my nutritional needs.”

An artist also, she considers her work with Hunger Free Colorado among her most important. The organization offers training on how to advocate for hunger issues before local governments and agencies to those who, like Caroline, want their voices to be heard and want to make a lasting difference for others in their shoes. In October, Caroline starts a school program she hopes will lead to a job that can provide her with the stability to provide not only for herself, but also for her 24-year-old son, who despite his job still finds himself hungry at times. “I would like to buy groceries every two weeks and take them over to his house,” she says — just the way she used to. Back at the exhibit at the library, a woman glances at the photographs as she walks by. She slows down, and backtracks for a closer look. The photo of a hand-scrawled sign — “Will Work 4 Food” - caught her attention. “It just made me want to look,” Susan Wolinsky, 71, a retired lawyer, says. “I just think it’s pretty sad that in this country people don’t have enough to eat … People who have full stomachs have a better chance of being productive citizens and of helping others.” She was surprised to find out she was one of only two passersby in an hour who had studied the exhibit, which will travel to four Adams County libraries, the 16th Street Mall in Denver and Hunger Free Colorado’s Oct. 1 Hunger Summit. “It’s too bad,” Wolinsky says, “that some of the photographs aren’t on billboards towering over the city so that people have no choice but to look at them.” Indeed. That would put big faces on the big numbers that are hunger in Colorado. Ann Macari Healey’s column about people, places and issues of everyday life appears every other week.

Arapahoe Community College earned a grant from the Temple Hoyne Buell Foundation to apply toward child-care stipends for lowincome ACC students with children enrolled in the ACC Child Development Center. The foundation has provided more than $200,000 in such stipends and support to ACC since 2004.

LPS on four-year streak

Littleton Public Schools has become the only metro-area district to achieve the rating of “Accredited with Distinction” from the Colorado Department of Education four years in a row. The rating is based on academic achievement, academic growth, reducing growth gaps, and postsecondary and workforce readiness. “Strong schools contribute to higher property values and vibrant neighborhoods,” said LPS Superintendent Scott Murphy. “The entire LPS community supports its students, families and teachers, and that’s why LPS continues to be the top-achieving school district in the Denver metro area. This kind of academic achievement year after year is something we can all be proud of.”

Cornerstone ball fields dedicated Three diamonds, nearby area undergo $893,000 makeover By Tom Munds

As teams began gathering on the diamonds for softball games, there was a brief dedication Aug. n 29 celebrating the completion of olo- the makeover of the three South Suburban Parks and Recreation Department ball fields on the ople, north portion of Cornerstone ars Park. t The major project included renovating the ball fields, build-

ing new dugouts, installing new scoreboards, constructing a new shelter with picnic tables and building a new baseball-themed playground. The project cost $893,000. South Suburban received a $250,000 grant from the Arapahoe County Open Space Fund, a $200,000 grant from Great Outdoors Colorado and a $3,500 donation from Arapahoe Youth Sports. The remainder was South Suburban funds. John Ostermiller, South Suburban board president, presided over the dedication. He said the project has been on the drawing board for several years and, in 2011, the district began applying for grants.

Back to School Sale

“We feel this is a major asset to the community,” he said during the dedication. “More than 4,500 individuals on about 400 adult softball teams use the field each year, and the hundreds of parents and children on Arapahoe Youth League teams play here during the weeks and weekends.” Danny Nourse, vice president of Arapahoe Youth League baseball, agreed the fields had undergone a major makeover. “This is a well-planned project that included the fields and amenities like the shelter and playground for those who come to watch the games,” he said. “This is a great facility and we hope we can bring some of our tournaments to this location.”

The Colorado Center for the Blind is celebrating its 25th anniversary with the Blind Driver Challenge from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sept. 13 at the center, 2233 W. Shepperd Ave. in Littleton.

Retail pot idea edging forward N Four councilors on board for stores By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@ourcoloradonews.com The possibility remains that Littleton will become an area island for retail pot sales, though by only one unofficial vote. “We’re surrounded by communities that have said no,” said Councilor Bruce Beckman during Littleton City Council’s Aug. 27 study session. “I’m not sure that Littleton wants to stand out when the whole south-metro area has said no.” Mayor Debbie Brinkman and Councilor Phil Cernanec joined Beckman’s opposition to pursuing an ordinance that would allow the four existing medical-marijuana dispensaries to add a retail component or convert altogether. “Of course I’m completely opposed to it,” said Brinkman. “The people didn’t vote for retail sales, they voted on the right for people to use it, and for jurisdictions to decide how they wanted to handle that.” Cernanec said his stance reflects his district, which voted

against retail sales in last year’s statewide election despite Littleton as a whole voting in favor. He also cited the position of Littleton Public Schools officials. “For each one of them, it’s not even a gray area on whether to allow adult usage as far as the message it sends to the young folks,” he said. “I’m in favor of eliminating criminalization of minor amounts, but I’m not looking for pot stores in the city.” Councilor Jerry Valdes countered that kids often get pot from their own parents, and that perhaps parents should be more responsible. He’s an advocate for regulating pot like liquor, which was the goal of Amendment 64, and said alcohol is a huge problem in the schools, as well. Melissa Van Diest, owner of The Hemp Center on Main Street, agreed. “It doesn’t really matter, because their friends are probably just going to get it for them anyway,” she said. “It’s just like alcohol. Same problem, same idea.” The support of Valdes and Councilors Peggy Cole, Bruce Stahlman and Jim Taylor was enough to direct Kristen Schledorn, deputy city attorney, to finalize the wording of an ordi-

Littleton City Council will consider an ordinance that would allow dispensaries like The Hemp Center to sell marijuana to retail customers, medical patients or both. Photo by Jennifer Smith nance for council to consider on first reading Sept. 3, with a public hearing and final vote on Sept. 17. “I kind of view it as a rose by any other name,” said Stahlman. “They had to lock themselves into the medical approach, but that genie is out of the bottle.” The law will limit facilities to the four that exist now and grandfather them into their existing locations, despite the fact that three of them do not conform to zoning

requirements. It mostly mirrors the current medical-marijuana regulations, and defers to state law where it is more strict. “It has held the test of time, and we probably have four of the best-behaved medical-marijuana dispensaries in the state,” said Brinkman. Should all four dispensaries decide to either go strictly retail or sell both retail and medical marijuana, 18- to 20-year-old medical-

marijuana patients would have to fill their prescriptions out of town, as the law forbids anyone younger than 21 to enter a retail pot store. City Manager Michael Penny said one dispensary has reportedBy J it doesn’t want to go retail, pre-jsmi sumably because medical marijuana is taxed less and patients O can buy more than the ounce thatthe o retail customers are limited to. a lot Van Diest said she’d likely applyWine for dual licenses, though she’d bekin F disappointed if her facility could Fi no longer serve younger patients.

City staff advised it mightJust i be wise to wait and see before allowing new types of ventures. “None of those generate sales tax.

Federal government won’t block state’s marijuana rules By Vic Vela

vvela@ourcoloradonews.com The federal government finally provided clarity on Colorado’s marijuana laws on Aug. 29, with the Department of Justice issuing guidance saying that prosecutors will not seek to block recreational pot use and

sales here — so long as the newly created industry abides by state regulations. However, the memo does spell out priority cases involving serious marijuana-related offenses that federal prosecutors will continue to investigate, regardless of state laws. And it maintains that possession, cultivation and distribution of the drug will re-

main a federal crime. Still, the memo makes it clear that federal prosecutors won’t be beating down doors of most recreational pot users in Colorado any time soon. The clarity provided by Attorney General Eric Holder’s office has been a long-time-coming for many around the state, who have sought guidance from the feds ever since Colorado voters passed Amendment 64 — the ballot measure that legalized recreational pot use and sales — last year. “This is a good thing,” said state Sen. Cheri Jahn, D-Wheat Ridge. Jahn played an instrumental role in crafting regulations associated with Amendment 64 during this year’s legislative session. “It’s not a matter of this being something that was statuatorial,” she said. “This was citizen-driven and put into the (state) Constitution. How do you not respect that?” The AG’s Office memo reiterates that “the federal government has traditionally relied on states and local law enforcement agencies to address marijuana activity through enforcement of their own narcotics laws.” The memo also says that the federal government has left “lower-level or localized (marijuana) activity to state and local authorities (to deal with).” But the guidance from the Justice Department makes it clear that federal prosecutors will continue to make marijuana enforcement determinations, depending

on the seriousness of the case. The department laid out eight “enforcement priorities” where the feds will continue to devote resources, “regardless of state law.” They include cases where drug money goes to gangs or cartels and cases involving drug trafficking. The feds also make it clear that they do not want marijuana distributed to minors. The guidance memo says it’s up to states that legalize the drug to ensure there are strong enforcement laws. “The Department’s guidance in this memorandum rests on its expectation that states and local governments that have enacted laws authorizing marijuana-related conduct will implement strong and effective regulatory and enforcement systems that will address the threat those state laws could pose to public safety, public health and other law enforcement interests.” Rep. Dan Pabon, D-Denver, who was the chairman of the legislative select committee that drafted Amendment 64 legislation this year, said that’s exactly what the Legislature accomplished this session. “We drafted the most robust marijuana regulations in the country because public safety is our top priority,” Pabon said through a statement. “The feds’ action validates all our hard work to protect public safety, comply with the will of the people of Colorado and keep marijuana out of the hands of kids and criminals.”

In the parking lot of Reinke Bros. Haunted nsusMansion, of course, 5663 S. Prince St. Adowedmission is $3, gates open at 5, and the show ng fa-starts at dusk on a giant blow-up screen. mightJust in case you don’t happen to have your re al-

own golf cart, Discount Golf Carts, 1360 S. Cherokee St. in Denver, has them for rent. Littleton code allows properly equipped golf carts on certain streets with speed limits of 35 mph or less, but party-goers are strongly encouraged to check the municipal code for details. In general, drivers must have a valid driver’s license or minor license. The carts must have headlights, rearview mirrors, taillights, brake lights, front and rear turn signals and a parking brake. Golf carts are not allowed on Bowles Avenue, Littleton Boulevard, Main Street, Alamo Avenue, Federal Boulevard, Mineral Avenue, County Line Road, Broadway, Belleview Avenue or Dry Creek Road. With help from Breckenridge Brewery, Alamo Drafthouse movie theater and Affinity Gaming Black Hawk, proceeds from the first-ever event support the Historic Downtown Littleton Merchants Association. The next day, Sept. 14, Littleton Rotary’s

event should really attract a crowd to Reinke’s. Not only did they combine Littleton’s most famous cannibal, Alfred Packer, and bacon into a single event, they added bands, beer and The Nacho Men. The Alferd Packer Bacon Party is 3 p.m. to 10 p.m., featuring a whole bunch of dead pig. Vendors will serve up a variety of bacon inspirations along with more typical fair fare, and sponsors are rewarded with pounds of sowbelly — along with Alfred Packer trial transcripts. Why are we spelling Packer’s first name two different ways, you ask? According to the Littleton Museum’s website: “It seems that during his Army days he got a tattoo on his arm in which the artist misspelled his name. Taking a liking to the error, he oftentimes went by `Alferd’ as something of a joke. On legal documents, however, he called himself and was referred to as `Alfred.’” Prior to his death in 1906, Packer spent

much time in around Littleton, ultimately being buried in Littleton Cemetery in 1907. He came here after he was paroled from prison in 1901, where he spent 15 years for admittedly eating a man rather than starving to death on a cold mountainside. Rotary’s mission is just as dogged. The organization, and this event, raises funds for scholarships to Arapahoe Community College, Books for Babies, Colorado Drowning Prevention Task Force, East Elementary’s Tutor Time, Hands Across Littleton, Littleton Free Clinic and more. “The more we raise, the more we can give,” said Doug Applegate, president of the Rotary Club of Littleton Foundation. Besides The Nacho Men, bands include Red Room Rendezvous, Dixie Leadfoot and the Chrome Struts. There will be an artisans’ showcase and kids’ activities, including a bouncy castle.

when there were only a handful of lawyers. I spent many hours on Main Street with my dad, including visits to the Littleton Independent office, which moved several times as I grew up. “Dad especially enjoyed talking to the sports guys, because my brother was an athlete and three-sport letterman at Littleton High School in the 1970s. The paper extensively covered high school sports then, and my brother was very often mentioned. “I spent many hours cutting out articles about Littleton, sports, baseball and my brother while compiling a scrapbook for my brother’s high school graduation, and then continued receiving it by mail after I married, along with the Northwest Arkansas Times, so that I could put together a scrapbook for his college years as well.” The deadline for submissions is Sept.

Crunch time at hand for Morse, Giron Ci Recall elections sparked by gun-control measures By Vic Vela

vvela@ourcoloradonews.com The term “the third rail of American politics” has long been associated with politicos who talk about cutting Social Security — a charged issue that could lead to severe consequences for any elected official who dares to touch it. But soon, a couple of Democrats in Colorado could end up learning the hard way about another “third rail” issue, as two state lawmakers face recall elections over their votes on gun legislation that was passed this year. The stakes couldn’t be higher for John Morse of Colorado Springs, who is the Senate president, and state Sen. Angela Giron of Pueblo. And their potential ousters could have lasting ramifications in the state and across the nation. “The message could be that it is just political poison to support any form of gun control, no matter how reasonable it may look to people,” said Bob Loevy, a political scientist at Colorado College. “If either is eliminated, the message is

going to be: No matter how big or politically strong you are, you can be knocked out over gun issues,” Loevy said. Morse and Giron are the first lawmakers to face a recall in Colorado. Their districtonly elections are scheduled for Sept. 10. Both supported legislation that requires universal background checks on all gun sales in the state, and were behind a separate law that places limits on high-capacity ammunition magazines — such as the ones used in mass killings at an Aurora theater and at Connecticut’s Sandy Hook Elementary School. Morse also sponsored a bill that would have placed liability on assault weapon owners and manufacturers whose guns are used in crimes. However, Morse ended up killing his own legislation. Republicans were unanimous in their opposition to the gun bills. The gun debate stirred passions like no other issue this legislative session. “In my seven years in office, I’ve never seen an issue have this kind of emotion,” said Rep. Frank McNulty, R-Highlands Ranch, a former House speaker. That’s about the only area of gun legisla-

tion that McNulty and state Sen. Evie Hudak agree on. The Westminster Democrat voted for each one of her party’s gun-control bills this session. Her own bill, which placed stricter limits on domestic violence offenders’ access to guns, also became law. “I received so many threatening emails, with extremely bad language used against me,” Hudak said. “My best friend thought I should wear a bulletproof vest.” Recall organizers initially targeted Hudak as well, but that effort failed. Since then, Hudak says she’s been knocking on doors in Pueblo and Colorado Springs, in support of her colleagues’ efforts to thwart the “ludiNewell crous” attempts at recall. Hudak and state Sen. Linda Newell, D-Littleton, point out that Morse is term-limited and will be out at the end of next year, regardless of what happens Sept. 10. Giron is up for re-election next year. “If it’s just about a vote, you have elections and term limits,” Newell said. “It’s not a wise use of taxpayer dollars. We take about

a thousand votes every single session. If youCou are recalled over every single vote? Oh myexp gosh. It would be dysfunctional.” But McNulty believes that recalls are “amic longstanding right in the state of Colorado.” McNulty also notes that, for as much atten-By J tion as the recall elections are getting, theyjsmi are rare and difficult to pursue. “I don’t think people take this lightly,” he O said. “But if (elected officials) are out of stepCity with their district, then the recall electionforw should be there.” seem Like Loevy, McNulty thinks the recallsport could have a lasting impact on future gun-man control efforts. “I “I think it certainly does send a messageby al to folks who push policies that infringe onasked law-abiding citizens’ ability to hold fire-Brink arms, that you will need to think twice,”Aug. McNulty said. prefe Newell disagrees. some “I’m not concerned about the policy is- Li sues at all,” she said. perth “The recalls send a message of fringe,lars special-interest groups being obtrusive.” perfe Regardless of what happens, a precedentmen may already be set. shop “People are going to realize that there isStree this other way of punishing politicians over “W doing something they don’t like,” Loevyand said. sider busin love

City might welcome alcohol makers County gets online facelift Council set to consider expanding horizons for microbrew business By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@ourcoloradonews.com On the same night Littleton City Council just edged the ball forward on retail pot sales, there seemed to be wholehearted support for expanding the alcoholmanufacturing trade in the city. “I have been very impressed by all three of the folks who have asked for this,” said Mayor Debbie Brinkman, who earlier during the Aug. 27 study session said she’d prefer that Littleton be known for something other than selling pot. Littleton resident John Cowperthwaite Jr. of Black Arts Cellars says downtown would be a perfect fit for his winery, and he mentions the former auto-body shop on the west end of Main Street in particular. “Wine making is my passion, and I am asking Littleton to consider making allowances for this business type so I can do what I love while helping to invigorate

Littleton by bringing something new and interesting to the historic downtown district,” he wrote in a letter to council. Currently, such companies are only allowed in industrial areas like the Santa Fe corridor, where Breckenridge Brewery will rise. The Old Mill brewery gets to be downtown because it has a full restaurant, so it’s classified as a brewpub. Other cities have established regulations for microbreweries, microdistilleries and limited wineries. Colorado law requires them to serve snacks and stay 500 feet away from schools. Microbreweries are classified as producing up to 60,000 barrels a year, but there is no state limit on how much a brewery can produce. Municipalities can impose their own regulations; Aspen, for example, limits how big the reception area can be, hours of operation and sample sizes. “Anything we could do that would allow retail sales to occur would be a benefit,” said Councilor Jim Taylor, who is an advocate of selling and taxing pot, as well.

Glen Van Nimwegen, community-development director, compares microbreweries and limited wineries to bakeries as far as impact on their surroundings, but acknowledges microdistilleries present somewhat more of a challenge. “They tend to catch on fire once in a while, and they tend to explode,” he said, so zoning requirements would need to include extra precautions such as fire-rated walls. Ryan White, in his request to council to consider zoning changes that would allow his microdistillery, noted the restrictions are easing in across the country. “The remaining remnants of prohibition-era laws have made for difficult navigation in my journey to open a microdistillery here in Colorado, particularly in Littleton, where I was born and raised,” he wrote. “Much of the success of microdistilleries I’ve visited comes from the support of the community, including those who understand the advantages of supporting the local economy and those who prefer locally crafted goods that are unique.”

Ease of use, more tools featured on new website By Deborah Grigsby

dgrigsby@ourcoloradonews. com Surfing Arapahoe County just got a little easier. On Sept. 4, the county launched its new and improved online presence at www.arapahoegov.com; an initiative that’s been in the works for more than two years. According to a statement from the county, the new site features improved navigation, fresh content and an array of tools to help visitors quickly locate information and services. “Improving our website was identified as a countywide priority through the Align Arapahoe strategic management process, and it is one of the initiatives that our departments and elected offices have been working diligently on since 2012,” said District 3 Commissioner Rod Bockenfeld. “We are very excited to launch our new site, as it offers better tools for citizens to interact with

It hired CivicPlus, a company that specializes in government websites and content management solutions, to redesign both the website and Intranet. The improvements, according to a statement, encompass more than two years of planning and development by an employee committee representing every county department and elected office. Those who have bookmarked any pages on the existing county website will need to refresh their links. Improvements will continue during the coming months, in what the county hopes will be an even more seamless user experience.

Later this year, the health care provider will open a multi-specialty clinic in Lone Tree and hire an additional 130 positions there. As Kaiser Permanente continues to add new membership in Colorado, it’s estimated that hundreds of additional jobs could be created in the state in the next three to five years. “We are pleased to provide a sustained boost to Colorado’s economy,” said Donna Lynne, president of Kaiser Permanente Colorado.

opinions / yours and ours

A place and time for contemplation This next Wednesday marks 12 years since the day the Twin Towers fell and alQaeda terrorists aimed their planes at the Pentagon as well as the White House. Having been born in the ’70s, there are only two events that even come close to comparison for me — the Challenger explosion and the start of the Gulf War. Neither of those events holds a candle to those images we all witnessed a dozen years back; most of us on television, a couple people I know who were unfortunately there. I never had the opportunity to see the towers while they stood tall, beacons in the New York City skyline. My first pilgrimage to Manhattan was just weeks ago, and along with thousands of others on an early Sunday morning, I filed into the land of what was, to see what it had become, as the foundations of the towers became a place to remember each and every life taken on that fateful morning. Moved to silence, and soon after tears,

my mind drifted to a childhood friend, one of the 22 Navy SEALs shot down by Afghan insurgents on Aug. 6, 2011; the deadliest day for American forces in the now 12-year War on Terror. If it hadn’t been for the attacks that claimed the lives of 2,996 citizens that morning in 2001, my friend would never have been fighting on foreign soil, and the hundreds of lives that were affected and continue to be affected by his death would Boldrey continues on Page 9

question of the week

Will the Broncos reach Super Bowl? With the NFL regular season getting underway, we asked area residents visiting Lone Tree for their take on the Broncos’ odds of reaching the Super Bowl this year.

“They’re kind of hurting with some of the players that are injured and out with other issues, but I think we’ve got a really great chance of at least making the playoffs and possibly going to the Super Bowl.” — Charlie O’Neal, Denver

“With that whole (Von) Miller thing going on, he’s not going to be there half of the season. They have a good chance, but I don’t think they’re going to blow it out of the water.” — Michelle Campbell, Denver

“I don’t know anything about football, but I think they’ve got a 50 percent chance. That’s based on nothing. ... No, I don’t think they’re going to go to the Super Bowl.” — Julie Schmidt, Colorado Springs

“With Peyton Manning and the receiving corps they have, I think they’re going to have a great chance of .... Without Von Miller for the first six games, it’s going to be tough ....” — Joel Monroe, Lakewood

Mac and cheese: a six-part analysis Whenever something goes haywire in the Middle East, I write a column about food. In other words, about every two weeks. It takes my mind away from it for at least a couple of hours. “Imported from your childhood” is what it says on a box of Kraft macaroni and cheese. When I was in college I probably ate five boxes of it every week. Now? Practically never. But I still eat a lot of macaroni and cheese, mostly because of Jennifer. When I was eating Kraft, I could buy five boxes for a dollar. Now it’s a dollar each, unless you’re a member of a food club, which I am not. But it is still priced right for a college student, and it gives the illusion of providing some actual nourishment, which Top Ramen, for instance, does not. On your behalf, I decided to do some macaroni and cheese research. It can be one of our favorite, simple meals. But not always. You might not know that some version of macaroni and cheese has been around for centuries. There’s a pasta and cheese recipe in a 14th-century cookbook. The first modern recipe appeared in 1769 in “The Experienced English Housekeeper.”

The New York City skyline may no longer include the World Trade Center’s Twin Towers, but foundations of the two buildings have been turned into memorials commemorating all those who lost their lives in the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, including each of the flights, the Pentagon and the Twin Towers.

Don’t let gum stick it to you I would venture to guess that at one time or another, all of us have either stepped on a piece of gum, or if we haven’t been so fortunate yet, will certainly step on a piece at some point in our lives. You know the kind I am talking about, right? It’s a hot day, someone has spit out a piece of chewing gum, the heat of the sidewalk or asphalt has baked it into a soft or even liquid-like substance, and then we are blessed enough to step right on it. We immediately know when it happens, too. We feel it, we look down at the strands that are partially stuck to our shoe and yet still connected to the ground behind us. We let out a sigh as we crinkle our nose, scowl at the mess, and maybe even utter a four-letter word or two. How about the other things that are keeping our feet stuck in one spot and that make us snarl with angst as they slow us down on what we really and truly want to pursue? What is holding us back, holding you back? Is it a lack of a certain skill or knowledge? Is there a tainted experience or memory that has jaded our hope and inspiration for following through on our goals and dreams? What is causing us to look back or look down at the lack of achievement or missed opportunities? If you are like me, you also really hate gum on the bottom of your shoe. It’s not just the sticky strands and wondering whose mouth germs are under our feet, but it’s also about how we are going to clean that mess up. Here is the better question, “How will we clean up the mess under our feet that is holding us back from everything that we want to be, do, or have?” What has to be

I have no agility in the kitchen, and besides, the sublime convenience of a microwaveable container would keep me from assembling my own version, or yours, so don’t send me any recipes. In addition to Kraft, whose cheese powder color is very disturbing, I have sampled Michelina’s, Banquet, Stouffer’s, Lean Cuisine and Whole Foods, and here’s my report. Kraft’s pasta is the tiniest on the market. How the orange powder could become anything resembling a cheese sauce is one

untangled and scraped away so that we are free to increase our stride and move with the purpose and passion we once enjoyed? The tricky thing is that when we step on a piece of liquefied gum we immediately know it, but when we are stuck in other areas of our lives we either choose to ignore it or we just do not recognize what is keeping us on the periphery of moving up or ahead or maybe even greatness. A good first step is to list all of the things that we want to have in our lives or give of ourselves. Then next to each one list all the potential barriers, all the possible pieces of chewing gum that could take us away from our mission. Are they real-world barriers or just things and obstacles we imagine or make excuses for that allow us to focus on the stickiness and scraping instead of the cleaning up and forging ahead? Have you looked at the bottom of your own shoes lately? What do you see? Are they full of stringy attachments and forgotten dreams and visions, or have they been wiped clean and ready for the next journey? And maybe, just maybe you have one shoe stuck and one shoe clean, straddling

never have had the war and 9/11 put into perspective like they were. It’s that same perspective that friends and family members of those 2,996 people as well as the more than 5,200 American soldiers who have died since in the resulting wars now experience each time they think of that morning. My friend, like many others, felt a call of duty. And as I stood there running my fingers over the names of lives lost - surrounded by a skyline once dwarfed by the towers — I began to understand that call more than ever before. These were the people he was fighting for. It was a similar call of duty felt by another friend of mine, Paul Palmisano, who runs an alternative school in Monument, Colo. My mind turned to him next. A native New Yorker, Palmisano spent five days, Page 9beginning moments after the attacks, working at Ground Zero, spending his time unloading equipment and donations from barges at nearby docks and the rest in a human chain carrying debris out from the destruction.

of the Three Secrets of Fatima, and I think Kraft is smart to market their product as a favorable childhood memory. Michelina’s is absolute glop. Their marketing strategy is to claim their product is “priced better” (i.e., cheap). All I saw under the list of ingredients were unpronounceable words. And good luck with removing the lid. I guess you could just leave it hanging on, but if you try to tear it off, well, you won’t be able to. Banquet is almost as frightening. But at least you can remove the film cover. Stouffer’s is in the ballpark. The elbow macaroni is good, and they use “100% real cheddar cheese.” Lean Cuisine is my choice when I want to make something quickly that’s tasty. The box says “tender macaroni in a creamy cheddar cheese sauce” and “no preservatives.” Lean Cuisine doesn’t try to market their macaroni and cheese as a nostalgia item or a thrifty alternative.

“I just really felt it was my duty,” Palmisano said in a 2010 interview with Colorado Community Media. “That was why I was going south while everyone else was fleeing north. I was enraged. I’m still enraged that our country was attacked.” And as he recalled casualties covered in soot, fleeing Ground Zero, and offering assistance to them, he also recalled an overwhelming sensation of patriotism. “I’ve never seen that kind of patriotism before,” he said. “Besides the nightmares, that’s what I remember. I didn’t know if I had it in me until that day. Now I know I’m someone that can go in when others have to go out.” Everyone, no matter how patriotic, at some point, should do the same. Go there, see what he saw, and see what you have inside of you. Because while that day may be 12 years gone, its images and impact have stayed with most all Americans ever since. And while some of us have turned a blind eye to the Middle East, the war still rages on, and in the quietest place in all of New York, there serves a memorial of not just what happened, but that soldiers are still fighting, and lives are still being lost. Ryan Boldrey is a reporter for Colorado Community Media and a Castle Rock resident. He can be reached at rboldrey@ ourcoloradonews.com Way out in front in quality, and cost, is Whole Foods’ macaroni and cheese. I brought some home for Jennifer and me one night, and since then she has written poems about it. I have to warn you: It’s $6.99 a pound. An argument could be made that macaroni and cheese should be kept simple. I don’t agree. Whole Foods has taken something that is basically simple, and made it something profound. The sauce doesn’t look like aqueous yellow Crayolas (see: Banquet). It is banana-colored, thick, sophisticated and complex. I say this without wanting to sound like one of the judges on “Chopped.” Macaroni and cheese is often a sideshow instead of the headliner. It goes great with barbecue and chicken wings. Finally, I bet you didn’t know that there’s a National Macaroni and Cheese Day in the United States. Whose idea was that? But now that you do know, next July 14, get yourself some.

Musician has a story, and mower Free spirit expressed himself on box truck By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@ourcoloradonews.com Perhaps you’ve seen the wildly decorated box truck around town and thought to yourself, “I’ll bet there’s a story in there somewhere.” Of course there is, along with a riding mower. The truck belongs to Zackary Emerson Roley, 22, Littleton native and aspiring musician. He says his name just doesn’t sound quite right without the “Emerson,” so there it is. We meet him in a café, guitar slung over his shoulder, Mohawk combed down, his slight but muscled framed scratched up from what he says was a misunderstanding over a woman in a bar. A poet who writes music and lyrics, he’s carrying three newly acquired but used books he’s eager to get to. Roley says he bought the truck with his school-loan money off Craigslist from a 78-year-old man who’d been running a landscaping company out of it for the last 28 years. He assures us he bought his schoolbooks, as well, in his pursuit of a major in music and a minor in sociology. “I bought the van trying to quit being a broke musician,” he said. “It’s my vehicle of transcendence.” He thought he would pay his way through school with the box truck and the riding mower. The man could still lift the mower into the back of the truck alone, so Roley thought it must be good, honest work. But he didn’t like the truck’s color, and he felt something about its energy seemed off. Roley admits he’s a free spirit, earthy, ethereal, even flighty. So naturally, the paint job reflects that attitude. In gold glittery paint, he emblazoned peace signs, a Star of David and slogans like “Shine a light, alright.” He admits he makes his dad crazy some-

Zackary Roley, an aspiring musician and native of Littleton, calls his box truck his “vehicle of transcendence.” Courtesy photo times, but Roley might come by his free spirit honestly. After his parents split up when Roley was in middle school, his father and stepmother moved him to Ohio. “I dreamed about Littleton while I was there, the light, the valley, the river,” he said. Family issues came to a head, he said, and he ended up back in Denver, a homeless teenager busking on the 16th Street Mall. But when he needed some medical attention, his mom was there. “I’ve been lucky enough to fall into the right hands during the worst times,” he said. But then his stepdad, with whom he’d been close, died after a long illness, sending his mother to the mountains to seek solace and quietude.

“She’s taking a little break,” said Roley. His father eventually ended up back in Littleton, and his grandmother never left, so he splits his time among family and friends, he says. “I came back here to get back to my roots,” he said. “What I love about this town is the deep roots, and the potential of it. It has a cool spirit, but it’s still rockin’.” He notes changes around town from his youth, things like trendy restaurants and a regular farmers market that he thinks is improving the quality of life. “I think it’s a blessing,” he said. “Like anything, it has the potential to go really bad, but because of the way of Littleton, I don’t think it will be anything less than good-naturedness.”

The landscaping gig didn’t work out quite the way he hoped, and he’s since painted over the box truck’s custom paint job. “I definitely felt like it was cool at the time, and that I had to get back to reality,” he said. “The message had been delivered. Now it’s just chilling, waiting for its next message.” He’s working construction with a friend and pondering what’s next — more college, perhaps, or a soul-searching journey to California. “I yearn for a home for my heart, and it’s here,” he said. “I just have to go find the rest of the pieces of my heart that are scattered all over the country and bring them back home.”

r Canines to get run of Pirates Cove Freedom Service Dogs hosts aquatic fundraiser for the sixth year By Tom Munds

tmunds@ourcoloradonews.com

Activities including a one-kilometer walk, a midway of pet product vendors and dogs taking over the waters at Pirates Cove Family Aquatic Park are scheduled to be part of the Sept. 7 Freedom Festival and Doggie Plunge. This is the sixth year Freedom Service Dogs has sponsored the event. “This year, we added the one-kilometer walk with all proceeds going to help provide service dogs for wounded veterans,” said Stacey Candella, event coordinator. “There will be food vendors and events, demonstration and activities to showcase the wide and varied things dogs can do. At the same time, dogs can splash and swim at Pirates Cove.” There is no charge for admission to the festival, but there is a fee of $15 per dog for the doggie plunge and a $20 entry fee for the one-kilometer walk. Registration for the walk begins at 7 outa.m. and the walk steps off at 8. The dogsincegie play time in the park and the displays paint

Owners look on as their dogs splash around in the water at Pirates Cove during last year’s doggie plunge. The Freedon Service Dogs fundraiser will be held again this year on Sept. 7. File photo in the park begin at 9 a.m. Pirates Cove Family Aquatic Park is located at 1225 W. Belleview Ave. Belleview Park is located to the east and north of the aquatic park.

The pool waters will be churned up, as Candella said about 1,000 dogs are expected to take the plunge. But for owners who don’t want their dog in the water, the festival will be in full

swing at Belleview Park. About 30 food and pet product vendors will be set up in the park. There will be demonstrations by the Buckley Air Force Base K-9 team at noon. Also, there will be a fastest dog contest at 1 p.m. and a dog ice cream eating contest at 1:30. There will also be a place to sign up as a volunteer with Freedom Service Dogs, which moved to new, larger headquarters at 2000 W. Union Ave in Englewood. The organization was established in 1987 to provide assistance dogs to people with handicaps. Freedom Service Dogs rescues dogs from shelters with the goal of training each animal to perform services for a handicapped individual, such as turning on lights, opening doors and even helping do the laundry. To achieve that goal, each animal must complete a two-year training course at a cost of about $25,000, but the dogs are provided to the clients free of charge. The organization trained and placed 35 dogs with new owners last year, and the target is to do the same this year. Candella said many of the Freedom Service Dogs clients are veterans. She said there are 85 people on the waiting list for dogs and about half those individuals are veterans, many of them wounded warriors.

iendContinued from Page 1 lege, y toimprovements like building maintenance and infrastructure. The district estimates the actual need at about $102 d it’smillion, but asking for more than $80 million would have e restraised taxes. tered Colwell stressed that a proposed statewide $1 billion tax backincrease for education that will likely appear on the same ballot has nothing to do with this local question, and that it does nothing to address capital improvements. “I think Littleton looks at Littleton,” he said. Also on the ballot will be the five people who have officially declared bids for seats on the LPS board: Dallas Jones, Kelly Perez, Robert Reichardt, Jack Reutzel and Carrie Warren-Gully. Six people are running for Littleton City Council, as well. Bruce Beckman and Bruce Stahlman both want to retain their at-large seats but are being challenged by newcomers John Watson and James Dean. Nobody has yet stepped up to challenge Phil Cernanec in District 3, and Randy Stein is the only candidate running to replace the term-limited Jim Taylor. Council is also asking voters to approve a 3 percent city sales tax on both retail marijuana sales and lodging, along with a measure to change the city’s redistricting from every four years to every 10. Additionally, two citizen initiatives have been certified. The first would require the seven-member council to pass rezoning requests with a supermajority of five councilors, under certain circumstances, and the second would limit council’s use of executive sessions. Littleton’s municipal election is Nov. 5.

A more natural approach to new urbanism.

Continued from Page 1

“It would help it to be a place where people want to be,” he said. Fran Pierson lives just east of the site in Littleton Station condos and has been working against the project with the grassroots Citizens for Rational Development since the beginning. He now supports the project. “This was a difficult decision for me, because I had really been working with the neighbors against this for a very long time,” he said, adding that his philosophy is to always seek compromise. “We were so close, it wasn’t worth quibbling about.” Board member Karina Elrod made a last-ditch effort to approve the plan on the condition the developer lower the density. Originally 325 units, the latest plan is for 225, about 50 units per acre. Elrod thought 196 would more closely adhere to a design plan for the site. The Littleton Boulevard Corridor study, ratified by council, says 40 units per acre could prove economically viable, but there’s some ambiguity about whether that’s a minimum or a maximum or somewhere in between. Duzan tried to table the matter to give the developer more time to comply with such a condition, but developer Andy Clay of Alliance Residential said he’s under contractual obligation to his investor and the property owner to get this wrapped up. “Frankly, we’re out of time to make changes that would end up remanding it back to the planning board,” he said.

It’s so refreshing to be connected to Denver, but have your own urban oasis outside of the chaos. This is the mixed-use sustainable community of RidgeGate. Light rail for an easy commute. Bikeable and walkable paths. Oh yeah, and 1,000 acres of preserved natural open space for your backyard. Come check out the homes. The shops. And the wildlife. Just south of Lincoln Avenue in Lone Tree.

Fossil Trace makes big impression

Zachary Andrews and Jamie Morgan perform various parts in “Metamorphoses,” vignettes from classic mythology, at the Aurora Fox. Courtesy photo by A&J Photography

Classic myths still speak today ‘Metamorphoses’ plays at Aurora Fox Studio Theatre By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com “Enchanting!” said a friend as we exited the Aurora Fox Studio Theatre still under a spell, while those who sat in the front row returned the ponchos they had been issued. “Metamorphoses,” Mary Zimmerman’s beautifully crafted play based on ancient Greek and Roman mythology, is graced with an excellent cast, imaginative direction by Geoffrey Kent and an especially fine set design by Charles Dean Packard. Zimmerman had drawn on writings by Ovid and other classical and contemporary authors, including Rainier Maria Rilke.

IF you go “Metamorphoses” runs through Sept. 22 at the Aurora Fox Studio Theatre, 9900 E. Colfax Ave., Aurora. Performances: 7:30 p.m. Fridays, Saturdays; 2 p.m. Sundays. Tickets, $22 to $26: 303-739-1970, aurorafoxartscenter.org.

The set, with its cleverly lit pool of blue water, is almost another character in the script, certainly important to the sounds one hears throughout. It splashes, rains, has a waterfall and is deep enough for characters to disappear underwater and exit backstage. One keeps wondering: “How did they do that?” The pool is surrounded by wooden columns that suggest Greek predecessors — and walls with openings where gods and men (and women) appear to present a collection of stories and characters that are part of our cultural fabric — and the source for many contemporary tales:

Orpheus and Eurydice, Narcissus, Aphrodite, Erysichthon and Ceres, Phaeton, Baucis and Philemon, Eros and Psyche … We first meet a modern King Midas (a skilled Michael Morgan), who talks like selfcentered billionaire seen in the news today. A god, pleased with him, offers a wish and he asks that everything he touches might turn to gold. Although he has been shushing his active daughter, he is heartbroken when she leaps into his arms and we all know what happens to her. Staging of this scene and those that follow is carefully and precisely carried out, with musical background, extraordinary lighting and sound. Every splash — and there are many — has a part in the characters’ story and elegant language. A sense of humor is emphasized throughout by Kent’s expert direction. His experience as a classical actor is apparent. Lovers of theater will not want to miss this fascinating production.

Littleton gallery opens window on France Town Hall Arts Center also stages musical

IF you go “La Soleil du le Riviera” is exhibited through September at Town Hall Arts Center, 2450 W. Main St., in downtown Littleton. Gallery hours: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays and during performances. Art will be for sale. “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels,” a musical set on the French Riviera, plays Thursdays through Sundays. Information: townhallartscenter.com, 303-794-2787.

By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcolorado news.com “La Soleil du le Riviera” is the title for Pixie Gore’s and Kathy Dawson’s joint art exhibit in September in the Stanton Gallery at Littleton’s Town Hall Arts Center. Paintings of the beautiful South of France by two artists who have traveled there many times will bring the color and sunshine into the gallery for a month, while “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels,” the onstage musical, tells a lighthearted tale of two (singing and dancing) con men who agree to cooperate in bilking wealthy tourists, especially women, who are visiting the Riviera. Kathy Dawson is a travel agent who specializes in artrelated touring and will actually

Painter Pixie Gore is shown painting on the Riviera. Her work is exhibited at the Town Hall Arts Center in Littleton. Courtesy photo be on the Riviera when the play opens on Sept. 13. She grew up in an artistic family in Colorado and has lived in Germany and toured Europe, Mexico and the Caribbean as a group escort in “The Fine Art of Travel.” She is especially recognized for her paintings of European

villages on sheet music, maps, blueprints and foreign currency. Wall murals, including a mural of the Paris Opera House at the Buell Mansion, and faux finishes are a specialty also. Pixie Gore grew up in western Utah in rural areas and was led on many world travels by a

sense of adventure. She lived on the Cote d’Azur for eight months, where she enjoyed the sunny days that influenced the French Impressionists. She also lived in Spain, where she staged an art festival in Marbella. She has been a part-time Spanish teacher at Alameda High School, guest artist at Denver School of the Arts and earlier worked as a graphic artist. The duo will meet art lovers at a public reception from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 25.

Fossil Trace Golf Course in Golden is listed among the “10 most unusual U.S. golf courses,” according to Forbes magazine contributor Larry Olmsted. The writer raves about course designer Jim Engh, calling him “one of my favorite golf architects and way underrated by the general public, though the industry holds him in high acclaim.” Olmstead also notes Fossil Creek’s preservation of rustic mining equipment and the history lesson the course provides with prehistoric dinosaur tracks through holes 11 to 15 left some 64 million years ago. “Triceratops footprints have been well marked next to the 12th green so golfers can take a look, and more fossils, plaster footprint casts, and ancient history are in the clubhouse,” Olmstead notes. He forgets the great views the course offers from every direction, especially from holes No. 1 and 10, and the commune next to the 16th tee box. Read about all 10 courses and Fossil Trace at www.forbes.com/sites/ larryolmsted/2013/08/23/10-mostunusual-us-golf-courses/.

PGA Tour is on the ball

The PGA Tour is not run by a slew of stooges. Witness the television commercial already out touting the 2014 BMW Championships, part of the FedEx Cup playoff tournament series that will be played at Cherry Hills Country Club in Cherry Hills Village. The advertisement features four of Denver’s best-known sports figures, from the Broncos: John Elway, Peyton Manning and John Lynch and ex-Denver Nuggets star Chauncey Billups (now with the Detroit Pistons but a Denver resident and native). So Todd Helton and Joe Sakic are chopped liver? The BMW Championship is the next to the last tournament of the FedEx Cup series that narrows the field to the final 30 that play at The TOUR Championship the following week. Next year’s BMW Championship will be played Sept. 4-7 at Cherry Hills. Tickets are already available at https://tickettapp.com/wms/buy/ bmw/2014 for the 2014 BMW Championship.

Gallery event has Western view Stories, music, poetry, art, food featured at gathering By Sonya Ellingboe

A percentage of sales proceeds will benefit the Buffalo Bill Museum in Golden. Steve Friesen, historian, director of the Buffalo Bill Museum and author of “Bill: Scout, Showman and Visionary,” and Carolyn Campbell, artist and au-

If you Go The Great Western Art Gallery, which represents a number of south area artists, is located in the Brooks Tower, 1455 Curtis St., just north of the Denver Performing Arts Center. Hours: 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays to Fridays, noon to 5 p.m. Saturdays, Sundays by appointment. 303-396-2787, greatwesternartgalleryllc.com.

thor of “Soiled Doves of Colorado and the Old West,” will be among the storytellers. Singer and Western entertainer Liz Masterson will perform at the free event. She has taken her yodeling, singing, humorous stories and guitarplaying skills across the country to the

Smithsonian and the Kennedy Center. She has appeared frequently at the Littleton Museum in past years. Western art will be featured at the gallery through Oct. 25, including works by Albert Micale, who grew up in the East, drawing cowboys and Indians since childhood, and became an established Western illustrator, although it was 1968 before he traveled west of the Mississippi. He studied history, collected books and other materials and painted from his imagination. He said he does not work from photographs. In his “The Price of Winning,” the stars are positioned as they would be in a winter sky, according to Moore. The painting tells a sad story.

‘Autumn Boutique’ boosts arts center Lone Tree event will offer variety of goods By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com With the opening of the Lone Tree Arts Center, the LTAC Guild was formed to support and promote the center and its activities. The guild has held fundraising events at the center and elsewhere, and on Sept. 14, members will sponsor their first preholiday “Autumn Boutique” at the arts center, 10075 Commons St., Lone Tree.

The event will run 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., offering goods by a number of vendors, including custom women’s and children’s clothing, jewelry, accessories, art, childrens’ gifts, furniture, gourmet food items, home decor, pet products and more. Deborah Ortiz, one of numerous vendors, is a longtime resident of Denver’s Highland neighborhood who started painting as therapy after a serious accident and “discovered her artist within.” She created floral designs for family and friends for years before she began showcasing her art in local shows.

She paints unique floral art in homes and businesses and on upcycled glass pieces. She uses an enamel-based glass paint, which she heat-cures for durability. The fundraiser is open to the public and no reservations are required, according to LTACG president Maggie Eichenlaub, who says concessions will be available at the center for shoppers who need a bit of sustenance. Admission is free. The guild is actively seeking new members and interested parties are invited to call Eichenlaub at 303525-4744.

Noted nature photographer Jackie Crivello will speak to the Englewood Camera Club on Sept. 10. Her presentation will explore the secrets of capturing wildlife in rare moments.

Kelly Cannon’s “Imagined and Observed” — work based on maps, data and landscapes — flows across walls to meet Baer’s installation. Annalee Schorr’s mathematical “Rhomboid” in the North Gallery is glimpsed through a doorway. It includes four Plexiglas rhomboid structures, each striped with precisely patterned duct tape, a patterning that extends to the floor. Baer said the cooperative gallery plans its exhibits for the year with hopefully compatible combinations of members’ artworks. This combination is particularly pleasing to a viewer’s eye. Baer started planning in early spring, taking careful measurements of the gallery and its movable wall panels, forming an agreement with Cannon about placement of the large moving panels, which cannot be stored elsewhere. She has put them flat against the walls. She built a small model and planned her

gested a floating poppy field to me. “I’ve been making art a long time,” said Baer, who has created large, abstract public art installations across the country and in Europe and Japan. “If it’s a public art commission, you do it so carefully. Why not enjoy a show in a gallery?” she asked herself and rejoined Spark, where she had previously been a member. “This can be spontaneous, with different trims and patterns — so fun. I got hungry to exhibit again. Most art in public places is really missed … Here, one can count on space about every 18 months.” She speaks of the relationship of her works to theater, a favorite art form, where the set design holds special appeal. Baer’s public art works are found through the south suburban area: floating high at Littleton’s city hall (“Open Skies”), at South Suburban’s Goodson Center in Centennial (“Life in Motion”) and seated in ground locations at the Englewood Transit Plaza, Pine Grove Elementary School in Parker and in the Douglas County Art Encounters collection at Lone Tree. A Denver resident, she grew up in Louisiana and has a bachelor of fine arts from Tulane University (1971), followed by a master of fine arts sculpture (1978) from the University of Colorado at Boulder (1978).

Warriors roll to rivalry victory Arapahoe’s balanced attack, stingy defense lead to 38-0 triumph over Heritage By Tom Munds

tmunds@ourcoloradonews.com Arapahoe scored in each of the four quarters while keeping Heritage out of the end zone Aug. 30 as the Warriors won the season opener 38-0 to win the Brookridge Dairy trophy, their third victory in a row in the rivalry game. “We played pretty well overall but we were sloppy at times,” Arapahoe coach Mike Campbell said after the game. “Of course, being able to get a shutout win over a rival is a good way to open the season. But, while we did a lot of good things, we still have work to do because the season is just getting started.” After the game, Eagles coach Mike Griebel told his players not to hang their heads or listen to others because they are part of a good football team and they had to put the loss to Arapahoe behind them because it is only a tenth of the season. “We are a very young team with more than a dozen sophomores playing their first varsity game. I think all the emotion surrounding this rivalry tonight was high and maybe a little much for our young guys,” he said. “But we have talented players, we’ll keep getting better and we will become a stronger, more confident team as the season progresses.” With a 1-0 record, the Warriors next play host to Rangeview at 7 p.m. Sept. 6. At the same time, Heritage seeks to rebound for their first win of the year as they are on the road at 7 p.m. Sept. 6 against Fruita Monunment. Littleton Public Schools Stadium was packed Aug. 30 with the crowd about evenly split with those wearing Arapahoe’s black

Shaffer won the battle and made the interception. and gold and those wearing the red and silver for Heritage. The Eagles kicked off to start the game. Arapahoe took the kickoff and, with a good mix of runs and passes, drove to the Heritage 22-yard like. But they stalled there and the field goal try missed. But, late in the quarter, the Warriors got

the ball, and Jose Concanon’s short run capped a six-play, 56-yard drive. The extra point gave Arapahoe a 7-0 lead with 34 seconds left in the first quarter. In the second period, Arapahoe appeared poised for another score when it recovered a fumble on the Heritage 20-yard line. A rash of penalties nullified the first

two times the Warrior got into the end zone. Finally, a 9-yard pass from Gabe Peterson to Ethan Brunhofer and the extra point made the score 14-0. “We looked pretty good in the second quarter but there were some mistakes,” Campbell said. “The mistakes resulted in us having to score three times to get credit for one touchdown.” The Warriors later mounted another drive and added a 34-yard field goal with 2:51 left in the half. Heritage took the kickoff after the field goal and put together perhaps its best drive of the game. Freshman Mikey Griebel called the signals for the Eagles and the team used a combination of the run and pass to move the ball into Warrior territory. On the final play of the half, Griebel threw a pass into the end zone, but the receiver caught it out of bounds. In the third period, Cancanon electrified the crowd as he burst through the line and outran defenders on an 81-yard touchdown run. The extra point made it 24-0. Late in the quarter, Peterson again lofted a pass to Brunhofer, who won the battle with the defender for the ball, pulled away from a would-be tackler and scored. The play covered 74 yards and made the score 31-0. Early in the fourth period, the Warriors mounted a 62-yard drive that was capped by a 16-yard run by Bryan Daldegan. With 11:47 left in the game, the extra point sailed through the uprights to end the scoring. When the game was over, the Warrior players shook hands with the Eagles then took the trophy over to the student section so everyone could celebrate the victory. The senior Warrior quarterback said this was the best game of his life. “This was very emotional for me because it is my second varsity start and my first time in the game as the regular starting quarterback,” Peterson said. “This is a big rivalry and winning tonight was bittersweet for me in a way as I played youth football with a lot of those Heritage guys. I guess my only regret is I wish I had the pass that was intercepted back. But to get this win in the season opener is a great feeling.”

Runners face early test in storm-delayed meet Weather, course add challenges at annual Warrior Invitational By Tom Munds

tmunds@ourcolorado news.com A true cross country course with hills and water jumps is a trademark of the Warrior Invitational, and this year, lightning that forced a reshuffling of the schedule and rain compounded the tests for the runners. This is the 47th year for the invitational at DeKoevend Park in Centennial and, for the first time in recent memory, Mother Nature dictated changes in the schedule.

About 50 teams entered the invitational and most were warming up for activities to start at 4 p.m. with the boys junior varsity race, when everyone was sent to buses or other shelters after Chuck Lutz, Arapahoe cross country coach and event organizer, called a 30-minute delay because of lightning in the area. The delay stretched to more than an hour and the event schedule was reshuffled with the boys varsity race starting at 5:15 p.m. and the girls varsity at 5:30 p.m. About 6 p.m., the boys JV and C team runners were combined and sent out on

Fans cheer as Arapahoe’s Louis Hood heads for the finish line in the boys varsity race at the Warrior Cross Country Invitational. Hood finished 13th and the Warriors took runner-up team title honors.

the course. Five minutes later the girls JV and C team runners’ race began. The Arapahoe coach said this was probably the largest field of races in Colorado history and there might be a couple thousand runners on the course at the same time. But the event was run and Cerake Gabveikidane of Denver East was medalist in the varsity boys race, with a time of 15:10. Connor Weaver of Mountain Vista was second and helped his team to win the team title with 65 points. Arapahoe was second with 144 points. After finishing the race in 16:06, Weaver said he was sure the delay and change in schedule had an impact on everyone, but everyone still pushed hard during the race. “It was OK anyway,” he said. “The course was a little wet but it wasn’t too bad. I feel I ran pretty well. I would have liked to have won the race, but I set my own pace and l felt my time was good. This was a challenging field, I feel I did well, so it is a good way to start the season and work to get better.” In cross country, a runner receives points based on his finish in the race. The first place runner gets one point and the 15th runner gets 15 points. A team can enter seven runners and the points of the top five are totaled to determine the team score.

About 300 varsity runners head out on the course at the Aug. 30 Warrior Invitational Cross Country Meet. Because of a lightning delay, the boys varsity ran first and were followed in five minutes by the girls varsity. Photos by Tom Munds Behind Weaver, the next four teammates were Andrew Walton in fifth place, Blake Graf in 16th place, Tyler Matzke in 19th place and Carson Hart in 23rd place. In the varsity girls race, Monarch won the team title with 53 points. Mountain Vista was sixth with 239, and Emily Wolff’s seventh-place finish helped the Arapahoe Warriors to finish seventh with 289 points. Wolff said no one liked the schedule shift or going back to the buses because of the lightning, but none of that mattered when it came time to run. “It is a good course and it is a good race,” she said after crossing the finish line. “It was a big field, and maneuvering through runners was challenging, particularly when the trail narrowed down. But it was great weather for running and that helped make it a good run.”

Heritage takes second at golf tourney By Nick Puckett

npuckett@ourcoloradonews.com Seniors Jake Kelley and Spencer Painton of Regis Jesuit High School took the top two spots during a Continental League tournament at the Lone Tree Golf Club on Aug. 26.

Regis, reigning class 5A team state champions three years running, won the tournament with a score of 280 and a 20-stroke lead over runner-up Heritage (300). Heritage was paced by Nick Leibold, who recorded a round of 70.

Despite a ninth-place team finish for Douglas County (338), defending class 5A state champion and leading team scorer Kyler Dunkle, a senior, placed third with a score of 69. Highlands Ranch, led by Tyler Zhang’s 74, took third place, shooting a collective 316.

Wolff ran a time of 19:12. The next four Warriors across the finish line were Erica Petersen, Shelley Lautenbach, Sarah Slack and Elaine Barella.

Journeys translate code of history Navajo veterans honored by area Young Marines

About the NAvAjo code tAlkers When Japanese intelligence experts began breaking every code U.S. forces devised during World War II, World War I veteran Philip Johnston suggested that the U.S. military develop a code based on the unwritten Navajo language. Johnston, the son of a missionary to the Navajos, was one of few non-Navajos fluent in their tongue and understood that many Navajo words had different meanings depending on context.

By Ryan Boldrey

rboldrey@ourcoloradonews.com Every August since 2006, Brenda McNulty has been taking a group of Young Marines to Window Rock, Ariz., to participate in Navajo Code Talkers Day. McNulty, who is the battalion commander overseeing Young Marines units in Highlands Ranch, Douglas County, Aurora and Monument, as well as a unit in Kansas, met her first four World War II code talkers earlier that year when she was on a trip to Iwo Jima with some of the local Young Marines, including one of her sons. After striking up a friendship with the veterans, the Young Marines were invited to Arizona that year to participate in the Aug. 14 annual celebration, becoming the only non-Navajos to partake in the parade. Since that year, the trip has become a rite of summer for McNulty, who said she would rather give up Christmas or her birthday than forgo spending Navajo Code Talkers Day with some of the youngest and oldest service-minded Americans around. What began as a two-day adventure with a small group of Young Marines seven years ago has since morphed into a three-day experience for 101 kids between the ages of 8 and 18 who come from all over the country to help clean up Window Rock Navajo Tribal Park, set up flags and march in the parade, escort the surviving code talkers around,

The U.S. Marines signed up 420 Navajo radio operators who passed messages in code among them from location to location, aiding the U.S. forces. During the first two days of the battle of Iwo Jima the code talkers transmitted 800 messages with no mistakes, playing a key role in the U.S. emerging victorious. Fewer than 30 code talkers are alive today.

Courtesy photo present gifts to the Navajo family members and listen to old war stories. “It’s a chance to immerse the kids into their culture,” McNulty said. “In my opinion, everyone needs to know about this day and learn about what the code talkers did. Surprisingly a lot of people don’t know the history of how these brave Navajos were able to help save American lives in World War II. “We want to carry on their legacy. Most history books don’t even mention them, and because it remained a secret for so

long, a lot of the story got lost while it was a secret. There are so many amazing stories and they are willing to share them all.” Of the fewer than 30 Navajo code talkers still alive, 24 were present at this year’s celebration, and for the Young Marines who went it was an eye-opening and life-changing experience to spend time with them. “The reason I enjoyed this weekend was seeing the smiles on the Navajo code talkers’ faces and letting them know how much they are still appreciated,” said Highlands Ranch Young Marine Xander Tamblyn, 9.

“The best part for me was getting to do it now, not knowing how long the opportunity will be around.” Young Marine Carson Hague, a seventhgrader at Ave Maria Catholic School in Parker, said hearing the stories was likely a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. “I have two grandfather who served in World War II so I have always been interested in World War II history and accounts that have happened,” he said. “It’s rare to meet people who have had such an impact on our lives,” McNulty added. “These men are more than just World War II heroes. They are dear friends of the Young Marines. The best part for me is seeing how excited they are to see the kids.” To learn more about the Young Marines, please visit www.youngmarines.com.
