Broadstone battle not over yet Changes send project back to planning board By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@ourcoloradonews.com What many expected would be an epically long hearing on the proposed Broadstone apartment complex July 30 was cut abruptly short after the developer introduced substantial changes, rendering city council unwilling to rule without further

input from the planning board. Just hours before the meeting, representatives of Alliance Residential told city staff that in yet another effort to appease upset neighbors, it would reduce the height from six to four Brinkman stories, drop the number of units from 250 to 225 and increase the distance from the edge of the building to the street.

“I have some concern about the ability to fairly move forward on this,” said Mayor Debbie Brinkman. The planning board did not support the project in its previous form. Councilmembers want the board to review the changes on Aug. 12 and weigh back in before they proceed with the public hearing and final vote, now scheduled for Sept. 3. Councilor Jerry Valdes voted against sending it back to planning and wanted to move ahead that night. “Frankly, I’m here to discuss the plan be-

fore us,” he said. “If the applicant wants to come back with a new plan, so be it.” The other six councilors agreed planning should review the changes, but not everyone was happy with the situation. “I think this is the proper path, but it’s uncomfortable for me to take it,” said Councilor Bruce Beckman. “This is with a very heavy heart. My stomach is upset over this. I think this is a very problematic thing.” Brinkman acknowledged the efforts of Battle continues on Page 6

Candidate seeks post in District 1 Stein is first to vie to replace Jim Taylor By Jennifer Smith

appear after a few months,” reads www. littlefreelibrary.org. “Little Free Libraries have a unique, personal touch, and there is an understanding that real people are sharing their favorite books with their community. These aren’t just any old books, this is a carefully curated collection, and the library itself is a piece of neighborhood art.” Lohman is an avid reader herself, devouring news online — particularly related to her career as a water researcher—- and murder mysteries for fun. As a kid, she cut her teeth on the likes of Cherry Ames, Nancy Drew and the Bobbsey Twins. A love of reading continues to run through the family vein — two of Lohman’s nieces, Bizzie and Camilla, have appeared

Randy Stein has thrown his hat in the ring to replace term-limited Littleton City Councilor Jim Taylor in District 1. He is the only candidate seeking the seat so far. Stein is perhaps best known locally for renovating eight buildings downtown, including the one that formerly housed Opus restaurant, into what he calls a “synergistic mixed-use project.” “My goal at the time was to create sustainable value for the future while honoring the broad and deep history bequeathed to us by previous generations,” he said in a press release. “(It’s) a message that holds considerable meaning today, in light of the significant number of recent rezoning applications and other proposed land-use modifications pending before council. I understand the development side, and as a longtime and committed Littleton resident, I’d like to give back to the community by helping to forge positive alliances and to lessen the disharmony that I believe has grown considerably in our small town.” Stein is a founding director of Skeena Holdings, a development company focusing on underutilized assets and the surrounding community. He’s also a professional mediator and a lobbyist working with state legislators to “effect reform in land-use and homeowners-association legislation,” according to the press release. A fourth-generation Coloradan, Stein moved to Littleton in 1989. He renovated a circa-1900 farmhouse on Windermere Street and later the historic “Gallup House” across from the Littleton Museum. In 2004, he moved into a 1911 bungalow in downtown Littleton, adjacent to the second phase of Nevada Place apartments. Council approved that project in January, over the objections of Stein and many others. “Council’s discussion following the

Little Free Library brightens street Woman offers book-sharing to her Berry Park neighbors By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@ourcoloradonews.com If you happen upon a park bench or an airplane seat shortly after Lori Lohman vacates it, you might encounter a feral book. “I don’t want to own them,” she says, so she releases them back into the wild once she’s done. It’s not that she doesn’t love books — quite the opposite. It’s that she loves them so much that she can’t help but share them, something else she loves. A mindful melding of the two led to Lohman’s Little Free Library, a Babar the Elephant-themed box POSTAL ADDRESS

in her front yard filled with books for the neighborhood to enjoy at will. “She’s very interested in having a community environment here,” said Lohman’s neighbor, Jennifer England. England’s twin boys Liam and Finnegan, 7, enjoy leaving their outgrown books for others kids to discover. “They’re learning about community and being a good neighbor, and about sharing,” said England. “They were pretty into reading already.” Little Free Libraries are growing in popularity since they started springing up around the country. The organization estimates there are more than 6,000 worldwide, with seven in Colorado alone. “If this were just about providing free books on a shelf, the whole idea might dis-

Tiny old town is nucleus of faith The dim alcove sits to the side of the altar, kept cool by its old adobe walls. A young woman stoops through the low doorway, followed by her three children and her mother. She bends and scoops some of the soft, fine dirt from the small hole in the center of the floor with her fingers. She rubs her hands together, then caresses her mother’s hair with the dusty mist and kisses her forehead. “So you get better,” she says. They step into a narrow anteroom, flanked on one side by a wall quilted with photographs of men, women and children who have come searching for healing and on the other by countless canes and walkers left behind by those who believe they found it. In the bright sunlight just outside the church, Yvonne Roberto, 39, stands with her children, her mother, Rosa María Hernandez, 69, and her father, Joe Hernandez, 75. It has been 22 years since Yvonne last visited the Holy Dirt Room at El Santuario de Chimayó — the Sanctuary of Chimayó — in this small New Mexico town. Her mother’s illness — and her belief — have brought her back. “I’m not really looking for a miracle,” she says. “I’m just hoping it helps my mother better deal with her illness. I’d like her to be happy, instead of sad all the time. She knows she’s sick.” Yvonne pauses, glances at her mother. “She cries all the time.” Rosa María has Alzheimer’s. She believes the dirt can heal. And so, fueled by faith, the family drove six hours from El Paso, Texas. “I am a very religious person,” Rosa María says, nodding, the eyes beneath her sun hat solemn. “I pray.” As the family strolls away, Yvonne reaches for her mother’s hand.

••• The two-lane road that leads to the simple adobe and wooden church runs north,

about 30 minutes from Santa Fe, through a vast, desolate horizon in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo mountains. Pinyon pines and Russian olive trees splotch the dry, austere landscape with dark green and silver gray. The tiny, historic community of Chimayó, founded in the 17th century by Spanish settlers, is known for its Hispanic and Tewa Indian arts, weaving, red chile and sheep-raising, among other longtime traditions. About 200 years ago, it also became known for the miraculous physical and spiritual healings said to have occurred at the site where a wooden crucifix was discovered in the ground. Some 300,000 people from throughout the world and representing myriad religions visit each year, seeking to sate curiosity or petition for the blessings of la tierra bendita, the sacred earth, that encased the cross. Because in this place — where history, culture and spirituality entwine so thickly they cloak you like a blanket — many believe in miracles. A sign just beyond the church points up a bumpy, rock-pocked road. Fifth-generation woodcarver, it says. That’s Patricio Chavez, 39, a woodcarver of santos — saints. He is a direct descendant of local friar Bernardo Abeyta, who discovered the cross that led to the building of the Catholic santuario in 1816 on land considered hallowed by Native Americans. He shares an art studio with his wife, also an artist, who traces her roots in this village back eight generations. They

live in the modest house next door, which has been handed down by Chavez’s family through the ages. He’s not sure if the dirt has healing powers. “I think it’s what you bring to the church, not what you take,” he says. But Patricio, an affable father of three with an easy smile, believes in faith and, therefore, in the possibility of miracles. There was the gentleman about to have his hand amputated because of illness, he says, who after rubbing dirt on it, still had his hand a year later. Some, the santuario’s website says, believe the dirt will alleviate arthritis, paralysis, sadness and other physical and emotional afflictions. Some say it will cure cancer. “I hear the stories,” Patricio says. “There’s something going on.” But a less extraordinary miracle, perhaps, can be found in the way faith inspires perseverance in those who, as Patricio says, carry heavy burdens: The mother on a quest to visit all the chapels and churches in New Mexico to help her son in prison. The father, who has walked the 88 miles from Albuquerque to the santuario every year since his son died in the Vietnam War. In 2004, Patricio was one of six artists who renovated the historic wooden altar screens, or reredos, in the santuario. Pushed into the cracks and crevices, they discovered letters, locks of hair, notes, necklaces, dollar bills — the offerings left behind in supplication. You may not believe in miracles. But, Patricio says, “You have to believe in faith — it’ll ultimately save you.”

••• The church is quiet and cool. Behind the altar is a tall wooden screen, painted in greens, reds and blacks and gilded with gold, that surrounds the crucifix Abeyta is said to have found. More reredos with images of saints adorn the walls. Light filters through a stained glass window, and several women and an elderly priest sit in the wooden pews reciting the rosary.

The Holy Dirt Room — also known as the Pocito, the little well room — can be reached through a door off the altar. Although some believe the well replenishes itself, it is commonly known that the dirt is brought in from nearby hills and blessed by a priest. Still, an intense reverence fills this space. A frail, elderly woman, helped by her daughter, bends slowly, with difficulty, her hand trembling slightly and reaching for the silken dirt in the hole. She clutches a small fistful and wrings the dirt through her hands. “Gracias a Dios,” she whispers. Thanks be to God. They slowly walk out, the daughter gently supporting her mother. Ross Milliken, 58, and his girlfriend, Julie Rom, 53, enter and glance quietly around the room. At the poem on the wall: “If you are a stranger, if you are weary from the struggles in life, whether you have a handicap, whether you have a broken heart, follow the long mountain road, find a home in Chimayó ….” At the hole in the floor: As they leave, Ross bends and lets his fingers briefly brush the dirt. The couple has stopped here on their way home to Fort Collins from a wedding in Santa Fe. They are Christians, they say, not Catholic, but they like the spirituality of Catholic tradition. As for the dirt, “I think that people have faith, and it’s faith that heals,” Julie says. “Whether it’s the dirt or not, it’s the faith that heals them.” Ross agrees. But he acknowledges he felt moved to touch the blessed dirt. “There might,” he says, “be something to it.” There just might.

Modmarket now open at Kent Place Eatery prepares healthy meals from scratch By Tom Munds

tmunds@ourcoloradonews.com Dan McMillan brought his two daughters to the new Modmarket restaurant in Kent Place for breakfast Aug. 1, and the family gave the food and the facility a thumbs-up rating. “I thought the food was very good and it was healthy,” Dan said. His daughter Lauren echoed his comments, adding that her waffle was tasty and it was a healthy meal. Her younger sister Elizabeth added that she liked the way the waffles were placed in a circle. The Modmarket is a fast-casual restaurant offering simple, wholesome food prepared from scratch. Prices range from $6 to $10 for menu items that include breakfast, salads, soups, sandwiches, pizza and full meals. This is the fifth Modmarket location. The layouts of all the locations are similar in that the kitchens are open so customers can watch their meals being prepared. “We pride ourselves that we make everything right here, fresh

Christian Robinson places a completed order on the counter as fellow employee Kevin Younger checks it off the list at the Modmarket restaurant in the Kent Place development. The restaurant opened for business July 31. Photo by Tom Munds every day,” said Pete Petrilli, general manager. “It has only been one day since we opened, but so far people have told us they are glad we are here. I think people are happy to have a place offering fresh, healthy meals at an affordable price they can visit more than once a week.”

Petrilli was general manager of the Modmarket in Glendale and was transferred to the Kent Place location to oversee the process to get the restaurant open. “This is our fifth store, so we sort of have the opening system down pat, almost,” he said with a smile. “There are always the unex-

pected situations with construction as Modmarket goes from being an empty box to a restaurant ready to serve customers. It was sort of a juggling act, making sure everything was installed on time and the staff scheduled for the proper amount of training.” The store officially opened July

31 and, on Aug. 1, Petrilli said he was very pleased with the way the restaurant has been received. “We have seen a lot of people who we have seen as customers in Glendale and Greenwood Village who live in this area and they are happy to have us here,” the manager said. “We have also seen a lot of new people. The other four stores are generally located in commercial areas, but this store is part of a neighborhood and we are seeing a lot of individuals, couples and families walking or riding their bikes to the restaurant.” He said, in the early going, traditional favorites at the other stores seem to be holding true at the Kent Place restaurant. He said favorites include the superfood salad and the farmer salad, plus he said the prosciutto and pepe pizzas are in great demand. He said he’ll have about 30 employees at the store and the majority of the employees will work at least 30 hours a week. Petrilli said he wants people to understand Modmarket is a responsible company that would like to help people change the way they eat, by having them discover that healthy food can taste delicious and stick to the ribs. “S0, we take the extra step to get the best ingredients and hire talented cooks to prepare delicious, high-quality, healthy food at a price that allows frequent visits,” he said.

School tax-hike petitions submitted Backers report nearly twice as many names as needed

‘A lot of voters are skeptical of taxes, a lot of voters are skeptical of government.’

By Vic Vela

vvela@ourcoloradonews.com Organizers behind a tax initiative tied to an overhaul of the school finance formula say they have turned in nearly twice the number of signatures required for the proposal to go before voters in the fall. Initiative 22 supporters on Aug. 5 claimed to have turned in more than 160,000 signatures of Colorado voters to the Secretary of State’s Office. The proposal would create more than $900 million in new taxes and would support the funding needed to enact Senate Bill 213, a major rewrite of the School Finance Act that was signed into law by Gov. John Hickenlooper earlier this year. Supporters say the number of signatures they had been collecting since June surpassed their expectations. “It was only seven weeks, so I think it was a world record,” said Gail Klapper, director of the Colorado Forum, a group that played a major role in the crafting of Initiative 22. Initiative 22 would raise taxes on all Col-

Sen. Mike Johnston, D-Denver orado taxpayers. The two-tiered proposal would raise income taxes to 5 percent on everyone earning $75,000 or less. Those who earn over that amount would pay 5 percent on the first $75,000 in taxable income and 5.9 percent on taxable income above $75,000. Colorado’s current income tax rate is a flat 4.63 percent, regardless of income level. Putting that into perspective, the Colorado Commits to Kids campaign — the group behind the initiative — says that Coloradans with incomes of $30,000 would pay less than $1 a week more in taxes, or about $50 a year. Likewise a person making $150,000 would pay a little over $14 a week more in taxes, or $731 a year. However, opponents correctly point out that those numbers are not based directly on adjusted gross income, which

would mean those with a taxable income of $30,000 would pay an additional $111 a year, while those with taxable incomes of $150,000 would pay an extra $1,230 a year. If funded, the new school finance formula would create full-day kindergarten, provide preschool for at-risk children, and would put more money into needs-based programs for special education students and children who are learning English. The new formula would reduce class sizes and increase per-pupil funding for school districts and charter schools. Supporters say the new formula would also create greater accountability of where taxpayer dollars go, through the use of a state budget transparency system. “I think part of the problem with the old school finance formula is that no one understood how it worked, or what it did or

why it did it,” said state Sen. Mike Johnston, D-Denver, an educator and former high school principal who sponsored the schoolfinance bill. The Democrat-sponsored Senate Bill 213 passed this year without any support from Republican legislators. Organizers of the “No on Initiative 22 Committee,” which calls itself Coloradans for Real Education Reform, held a Capitol press conference later in the day to blast the initiative. Kelly Maher of Compass Colorado, a conservative nonprofit group, said before the press conference that it’s the wrong time to ask Colorado voters to support a nearly $1 billion tax “scheme,” given the “fragile recovery” of the economy. Maher also cited forecasts that the State Education Fund will have a balance of $1.6 billion for the coming budget year. “This scheme, which is a $1 billon tax increase, doesn’t actually provide for making education outcomes better for students,” Maher said. “It’s exactly the wrong time to put an onerous tax on Colorado families.” But Johnston thinks parents who have seen school fees and class sizes increase over the years, while “their kids’ favorite programs are going away,” will end up seeing the need for the initiative to pass.

cmichlewicz@ourcolorado news.com These days, LeAnn Rimes is in a good place. In a few more, she’ll be in an even better place: Colorado. Rimes, who shot to stardom at the age of 13 with her swooning hit, “Blue,” and has since scored countless hits, is headlining this year’s Rocky Mountain Music Festival Aug. 11 at Clement Park in south Jefferson County. In the midst of a 60-date tour supporting her latest album, “Spitfire,” Rimes is returning to familiar territory. She has historically been welcomed by the Centennial State with open arms, and performed at Gypsum Daze just three weeks ago. In recent years, Rimes has been headlining magazines instead of festivals. Becoming a tabloid fixture — criticized for everything from weight loss to relationship issues to rehab stints to treat anxiety — was not exactly part of the career

plan. But Rimes now seems to be taking it all in stride. “It’s hard to tune it out when you deal with it every week, but the conversation has changed to my music again,” she said. Citing husband Eddie Cibrian as a main support, Rimes says she has “weeded out anybody who didn’t need to be there” and, as a result, has become more content. She acknowledged that “it’s hard to write when you’re happy,” but she is able to channel any negative emotions into her newer, more rootsy material. “I allow myself to go into darker places when I write, but I am happier and can pull myself out of it at the end of the day,” Rimes said. Besides, maintaining an active presence on Twitter enables her to circumvent the rumors and talk directly with her fans. She receives encouragement from her devoted following and routinely tweets messages of positivity. Ditching the drama means enjoying the finer things in life, like the side treks she takes while on tour. Aspen is among her favorite spots, and Rimes has tried her hand at snowboarding (she is still mastering toe-edge turns) and ac-

tivities that have become perks of the job. Much like her wanderings across the country, Rimes has been exploring her musical acumen and continues to churn out songs that resonate with fans and those just now discovering her. She is navigating the ever-changing landscape of the entertainment business, including dabbling in movies, but believes she is writing the best music of her career. Rimes is following in the footsteps of idols such as Patsy Cline and Reba McIntyre, but also delving into contemporary artists like Ray Lamontagne who are forging their way in a music era in which meaningful lyrics seem to be an afterthought. “I love people who have something to say and say it well,” Rimes says.

Colorado Technology Association’s 2012 Apex Award for Technology Project of the Year. In 2013, it was a finalist for the South Metro Denver Chamber of Commerce’s Emerging Business of the Year Award. Pixorial is working with Colorado Community Media to let locals shine during Western Welcome Week’s Festival Day, Aug. 17. They’re urging parade-goers to shoot their own video via Krowds, and a highlight reel will be featured on the Littleton Independent website, ourlittletonnews.com, by that very same evening. Krowds has the added bonus of allowing parade-goers to get different perspectives of the scene while they’re actually still there, so if something interesting happens

on another block or you see a concession stand you particularly want to visit, you can be on the move right away. “The Littleton Independent will be testing this extremely innovative software during the WWW parade to determine if bringing together future Krowds Videos is feasible,” said Jerry Healey, publisher. “If so, expect us to bring together Krowds Videos for sporting events, concerts and breaking news — wherever a large group gathers. As a small news organization, we cannot have video cameras up and down a parade route. But by using Krowds, we can by integrating community-generated content. In the end, this video will have more interesting content because of the sheer numbers of participants uploading their content.”

Sterling Ranch selects primary developer Richmond American will take lead in Chatfield Valley By Ryan Boldrey

rboldrey@ourcoloradonews.com Three weeks after Sterling Ranch was approved for the second time by the Douglas County commissioners, the planned development north of Roxborough has announced Richmond American Homes of Colorado as its lead builder. The group, a subsidiary of MDC Holdings, is expected to begin building the first homes toward the end of 2013, but legal challenges to the development may still come in to play before work commences. Sterling Ranch, which was previously ap-

the people in the overflowing chamber, many of them affiliated with the opposition group Citizens for Rational Development. “It’s not with ease that we do this,” she said. Paul Bingham has been a main player with CRD. “We are very unhappy with the way this proposed rezoning is being conducted by the developer and the city,” he wrote in an email after the meeting, adding he felt council did the right thing by postponing the decision. “That ended the hearing and everyone left — mostly in a foul mood for having this developer cause so much time and energy to be wasted again by the Littleton City Council, Littleton city staff, Littleton citizens, and Citizens For Rational Development,” he wrote. “Not just during this aborted meeting, but for many days of hard work researching the project and getting presentations ready for this city-council hearing.”

proved in 2011, already went to court once over the question of having sufficient water. The neighboring Chatfield Community Association has said it may sue Sterling Ranch a second time on a variety of other issues, which they brought up in court before but were not addressed. “In the appeal put forth before, there were many different elements of arguments,” said Dennis Larratt, Chatfield Community Association vice president, during the July 10 county commissioners’ hearing. “The district court chose to determine on only one item. All of those other elements are still live and can be brought back. Be prepared.” Harold Smethills, Sterling Ranch managing director, said he fully expects another legal challenge from the Chatfield group,

Steve Anderson, the current owner of the property, also applauded the council’s decision, saying the developer made the adjustments at the request of some citizens who suggested they would support the project if he accommodated their specific requests. “Andy (Clay of Alliance) had to jump through a lot of hoops with many key people, including the investor on the project, to get all of the approvals and agreements necessary to accommodate the citizens’ requests,” said Anderson, adding that the changes weren’t finalized until the day of the hearing. “The council’s decision to remand will give everyone the opportunity to be talking from the same page at the rescheduled public hearing on Sept. 3.” Bingham has said that if council approves Broadstone, CRD will immediately start circulating a referendum to fight it and seek out council candidates who support the group’s positions. Those wishing to run for city council can only circulate nominating petitions from Aug. 6 through Aug. 27, a week before the final hearing on Broadstone. They’re due back to the city clerk at 5 p.m. Aug. 27.

(first) public hearing left me with the unpleasant and uncomfortable feeling that they had already determined to approve the rezoning,” he said at the time. “I, along with many of my neighbors, have determined that the rezoning is a ‘done deal,’ so there is probably no point in even attending the (final) hearing.” Stein earned recognition from the Denver Metropolitan Commercial Association of Realtors for “Transaction of the

which includes many homeowners who have said the development would destroy their rural way of life. However, Smethills said, any legal challenge is up to his attorneys to handle, and he and his partners are ready to move forward with the project. Sterling Ranch, once built out, is expected to have 12,000 homes and about 31,000 people on 3,400 acres in the Chatfield Valley. Plans call for 30 miles of trails, multiple parks and wildlife corridors, a multi-field athletic complex, a hospital, fire services, schools, and a town center patterned after Littleton’s historic downtown. “We are excited to have Richmond American as our lead builder,” Smethills said in a July 31 news release. “Our senior leaders ... have known Rich-

mond American’s management team for many years, and we look forward to a strong relationship for years to come as they help us realize the vision we have for Sterling Ranch.” That vision includes having 37 percent of the development being preserved as open space as well as participating in innovative water conservation practices, including rainwater harvesting. Richmond American, which — according to the news release — has a track record of building environmentally friendly homes with an eye on conserving water and energy, will take the lead on the design and construction of single-family homes. The company has built more than 40,000 homes in Colorado over the past four decades.

In addition, a citizens’ group is trying to petition two other items onto the ballot.

r Policy analyst runs for school board

m for rong help rling

Reichardt is researcher in educational issues

rcent d asBy Jennifer Smith nno-jsmith@ourcoloradonews.com cludRobert Reichardt grew up the oldest son cord-of a single mom, much like Ralph Moody of cord“Little Britches” fame. omes “Ralph Moody was huge ener-to me,” he said. “Littleton con-was this magical place that had cattle drives down the 0,000street. … It helped me a r de-lot with some challenging times.” Today, he’s running to be on the board of direc- Reichardt tors that governs Littleton Public Schools, including the elementary school that bears Moody’s name. Reichardt has a doctorate in public-pol-

icy analysis and has worked as an education-policy researcher for the last 15 years. “The interesting thing about my job is that I get to go to different districts around the country doing interesting and innovative things, and I get to see how they do it,” he said. “I’m very interested in bringing that information to Littleton, and seeing how we go from good to excellent.” Aberdeen Village resident Reichardt and fellow candidate Jack Reutzel are the only two board hopefuls who live in Littleton; Kelly Perez, Carrie Warren-Gully and Dallas Jones are all Centennial residents. Though it’s not their neighborhood school, Reichardt’s two daughters attend Centennial Academy of Fine Arts Education. One is a budding singer, he says, and the other studies violin. “I believe strongly in choice, but I do not believe in public money going to private schools,” he said. He worked on Colorado School Grades, a

private project that has sparked some controversy as to methodology but calls itself a tool for school choice — one of the hot-button topics stirring things up in neighboring Douglas County. “Some referendums they’re putting forward I support and have worked on,” he said of the Douglas County School Board. “But I think they went in with the attitude that the district was broken and the union was the reason it was broken, and that is not how I operate.” He says the current Littleton board has done a good job dealing with some big issues like the recession and school closures, and cites the members’ unity as the reason the last two elections were cancelled due to nobody stepping forward to challenge them. “There been no pressure to replace them,” he said. “But now there’s a group of parents who want to continue to support their schools. … Term limits are a key component of our

governance system.” He feels his career sets him apart from the rest of the pack. “My accomplishments professionally, being able to help improve educational outcomes through my work as a researcher,” he said. “Not just crunching numbers but helping people improve their organizations.” He agrees with the four other candidates in hoping that the current board decides to place a bond issue on November’s ballot. “It’s clear the schools need some maintenance and improvement around safety and security,” he said. He believes education is important to both a community’s health and the American dream. “I want everybody to have a shot at being as successful as their abilities allow them to be. I think it’s important to provide that launching pad for all kids. Communities live and die on the talent that’s within them.”

Charges may grow against police officer Existing drug, gun accusations could mean long prison term By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@ourcoloradonews.com Federal prosecutor Guy Till says Littleton Police Officer Jeffery Johnston might be looking at more charges pending the results of tests on nine guns seized from his home and additional substances, including some suspected of being ecstasy and GHB, known as the “date rape” drug. Johnston appeared in federal court for a status hearing Aug. 2, this time wearing a

suit and a GPS locating device. He is out on $100,000 unsecured bond, which he only has to pay if he misses a court date. The 22-year Littleton Police veteran was arrested by the FBI at his Parker home on July 19 Johnston after he allegedly paid an informant for $1,300 worth of ecstasy. Johnston is now on unpaid administrative leave from the police department. Authorities say a search of Johnston’s home produced a Colt Officers Model

.45-caliber pistol loaded with seven rounds in the magazine and one in the chamber; substances suspected to be cocaine, steroids and hundreds of prescription pills; additional firearms; hundreds of rounds of ammunition; empty pill pouches; a drug test kit; and a scale. Johnston currently faces one count of possession of ecstasy with intent to distribute, which carries a penalty of not more than 20 years in federal prison and a fine of not more than $1 million; one count of maintaining a drug-involved premises, which carries a penalty of not more than 20 years in federal prison and a fine of not more than $500,000; one count of posses-

sion of a firearm in furtherance of a drugtrafficking crime, which carries a penalty of not less than five years and not more than life in federal prison and a fine of up to $250,000; and one count of using a telephone to facilitate a drug trafficking felony, which carries a penalty of not more than four years in federal prison and up to a $500,000 fine. Till said he expects to get an indictment on new charges by a grand jury on Aug. 19. Johnston is set to return to court on Aug. 26. He is represented by Pamela Mackey, who gained notoriety defending Kobe Bryant against rape charges.

opinions / yours and ours

A lesson in back-to-school commuting The Denver metro area is on the brink of beginning another school year — and the annual change in traffic flow that comes with it. School buses will be out in droves, making frequent stops. Lights will be blinking in school zones, indicating a lower speed limit is required. Children will be walking on sidewalks and crossing streets on foot, sometimes when and where they’re supposed to, sometimes not. Other students will be doing the same on bicycles. And many high school students will be driving to their destination, meaning an influx of inexperienced motorists in a concentrated time frame. Those back-to-school factors will mix with Colorado’s still-going summer road-

our view work season. In some areas, like northern Douglas County, roads under construction seem more the rule than the exception, so caution is already at a premium. Toss in the wild cards of bad weather and distracted driving — motorists texting, talking, eating, grooming and so on — and it’s enough to make you want to stay home. We wouldn’t advise that, but we would recommend having some patience and being alert.

question of the week

What was your best summer trip? As the summer begins to wane, Colorado Community Media asked shoppers and visitors at The Streets at SouthGlenn

in Centennial to recall their most memorable summer vacation and what made it special.

“The best vacation was a trip to Tahiti I made with my wife and kids. As the plane was approaching the island runway, there was a Tahitian choir aboard and they began singing.” — Joe Thompson, Centennial

“Two vacations come to mind; one in Maui and the other in Grand Lake, Colo. I say Maui because it was the most luxurious and Grand Lake because it was the most fun.” — Linda Aumiller, Centennial

“I think the trip I made to Disneyland in California was the best. I was 19 and I drove all the way their with my family. What made it special was that I discovered it really wasn’t just for little kids.” — Carlos Cervantes, Aurora

“My most memorable vacation would be when I was younger and our family would take the traditional two-week vacation and drive from Oregon to Wyoming. We’d stop along the way to see relatives.” — Nancy Aeschlimann, Denver

Imagine there’s no Frankenstein A two-by-four is not two by four. The Cincinnati Airport is not in Ohio. Einstein never failed mathematics. Einstein said, “I never failed in mathematics.” Golf is not an acronym of “Gentlemen only, ladies forbidden.” George Washington Carver did not invent peanut butter. Thomas Edison did not invent the light bulb. Frankenstein was not the name of the monster in “Frankenstein,” the novel or the films. It was Carl. Just kidding. The monster’s name was “Frankenstein’s monster.” History, science, music, literature, religion, and technology are full of misconceptions that are passed along, generation after generation. The Great Chicago Fire of 1871 was not caused by a cow. Cinco de Mayo is not Mexico’s Independence Day. Go ahead and eat a burrito in the pool. You do not have to wait 30 minutes after eating before swimming. Volkswagens will definitely float, but they will not float indefinitely. Henry Ford did not invent the automobile. Sherlock Holmes never said, “Elementary, my dear Watson.” Men do not think about sex every seven seconds. True or false? Anyone can draw. True. A drawing can be no more than a mark left on a surface. A stick figure is considerably more than a mark left on a surface. If you can draw a stick figure, you can draw. However, if that’s the best you can do, you would have failed my drawing class. Do we believe in misconceptions? Yes. Do we believe in things that don’t exist? Yes. Do we believe in things and people we want to believe in, maybe against rationality? You bet. Mudville believed in Casey. Metaphorically we can extend that out to almost anyone — to the lead singer in a band, to an evangelist, to a head coach. Say it ain’t so, Joe. Joe Paterno cried when he realized the extent of the damage that had been done to his program and to his legacy. I am always a little suspicious of just

about anything and everyone. A friend sent me a postcard when I was in college. It was a very old postcard, maybe from the 1930s, and under a strange image were the words, “All things are not what they seem.” I have kept that in mind ever since. We want to believe in something or someone other than ourselves, but it should be cautionary, at least when it comes to earthly someones, like Lance Armstrong and priests. The Broncos. If you have a Bronco Basement, you may want to re-evaluate it. Politicians have fallen all over the place. Sometimes it doesn’t seem to matter. One was re-elected mayor of Washington, D.C. I am still shaking my head. We have short memories, and we are forgiving, although I don’t believe Lance will ever make it all the way back. Faith is one thing, and blind faith is another, at least it is to me. I question everything except who is buried in Grant’s Tomb. You may not be skeptical, but I am. I can’t even trust myself, and that’s been one of my biggest disappointments. Me. I have drifted here and there. I guess we are supposed to, and learn from it. The music for this column could be John Lennon’s “Imagine,” which was very perplexing to me when I heard it for the first 50 times. I think I get it now. “Imagine there’s no heaven.” Craig Marshall Smith is an artist, educator and Highlands Ranch resident. He can be reached at craigmarshallsmith@comcast. net

More than 60 years ago, AAA launched a campaign called “School’s Open, Drive Carefully.” The organization has some commonsense and potentially life-saving advice for those behind the wheel as children make their way to and from school. Among their tips: • Take it slow. Observing the lower speed limits in school zones incrementally reduces the chance a motorist will kill a pedestrian, AAA says. • Pay attention. Research shows that taking your eyes off the road for just two seconds doubles your chances of crashing, AAA says. And we would like to issue a reminder that texting and driving is not only foolish and dangerous, but in Colorado, it’s against the law.

• Give them a brake. Thousands of motorists pass stopped school buses on a typical day, AAA says. Again, dangerous as well as illegal. • Just stop it. Don’t roll through stop signs, but make a complete stop, checking for children on sidewalks and crosswalks. • Watch for bicycles. Kids on bikes can be unpredictable, so slow down and allow a safe passing distance. • Plan ahead. Leave for your destination a few minutes earlier than normal. We really like this tip as it builds in the time motorists need to comfortably take all of the above precautions. This time of year is full of excitement and promise. We’re hoping everyone gets back to — and home from — school safely.

Merchants support the news we need I just wanted to take the time this week to thank all of the merchants who make our local newspaper possible. Each and every week, writers submit their work and the staff at the paper works hard to edit and publish the columns. But without the advertising from our shop owners, restaurateurs, hoteliers and local service providers, none of the information would ever reach our community. And although I consume news and information updates from various other sources, I really enjoy reading this paper front to back to keep up with what is happening in our own backyard. And the other day as I was reading the paper, the ads really caught my attention. Now I am always looking for a good bargain or promotion to take advantage of, but this week was different. I was actually looking at each advertisement with a special sense of gratitude and appreciation. For our local merchants, advertising is simply a part of doing business and keeping their names and brand visible to the community. We have come to expect it as we peruse the newspaper, and maybe we have our favorite businesses that could be running a special, but do we ever stop and take a few extra seconds on each page to see who is really responsible for bringing us the news? I know that I have not always been diligent enough in this effort, however I look forward to making it a part of my reading routine. Just this week I found several great reminders of shops and eateries I needed to frequent more often. And as I really paid attention to the ads this week, I recognized many of the same businesses that have been supporting the paper year in and year out. This was important for me to realize and another moment of appreciation. You see, I have been writing my column for more than four years now, and these merchants are the reason that my insights and thoughts appear in the paper each

The Independent

week. These are the same businesses that ensure that all of the other columns, news, editorials, classifieds and events get published and delivered to us professionally and consistently. So here is my request, would you consider joining me and making an extra effort to shop locally? Our local businesses do such a great job in providing quality products and services, but more than that they contribute so much to how we receive and share news and information with each and every publication of the newspaper. I know that I can personally do more to show them just how much I appreciate their support, and I look forward to spending more and more time in our local shops, restaurants and bars, as well as taking advantage of the local offerings of people and businesses who have been serving our community for years. Thanks again to all of the local merchants, your consistent support is so greatly appreciated and I know that your investment in our newspaper means more to the community than you know. I would love to hear all about your favorite local business at gotonorton@gmail. com, and as we lock arms to support them all I know that it really will be a better than good week.

. We e of

nt ets fely.

It’s not often we witness Colorado’s high-tech innovators, third-generation farmers, prominent business executives, traditional faith leaders, aspiring young immigrants and leading law enforcement officials uniting behind a common cause. It is even less likely in Washington, D.C., for Republicans and Democrats from across the nation to come together to tackle a complex national crisis and write a landmark bill with bipartisan support. The long and tireless work of these unlikely allies culminated in the immigration bill the United States Senate passed with a broad, bipartisan vote earlier this summer. The bill will strengthen our economy and secure our borders. It will establish a sensible and rational system for the flow of future immigrants, put in place a process to reunite families and provide a tough but fair path to citizenship for millions of people who came to this country for a better life but are living in the shadows of our society. The long road to Senate passage began for our office roughly two years ago with the Colorado Compact. We brought together people from throughout the state

of different backgrounds, industries and perspectives to talk about the challenges of the current immigration system. Every member of this diverse coalition shared their frustration with our current immigration system and said that it was fundamentally broken. Traveling around Colorado you’ll see these frustrations exemplified. Farmers on the Western Slopes and Eastern Plains watch their crops wither on the vines because they can’t hire the workers they need to harvest them. Ski resorts and our tourism industry struggle with an unworkable system for their seasonal workers. Start-up and high-tech business

owners watch as we educate the world’s best and brightest in our schools of higher ed and graduate programs only to send them back to their own countries, where we then spend the next 20 years competing against them for the ideas and intellectual property our schools help instill in them. The Senate immigration bill streamlines the visa system and aligns it with the needs of our businesses, while still protecting American workers and jobs. Our flawed system has also left 11 million people in the shadows with few options and no opportunity. That’s bad for our economy as Americans try to compete with undocumented workers who are often paid under the table, driving salaries down. It’s also bad for families, when parents live in fear of being deported and separated from their American-born kids. The tough but fair path to citizenship in the Senate bill provides a sensible solution. Undocumented immigrants must pay taxes, pay a fine, learn English and stay out of trouble with the law to access this path, which can’t be completed until the bill’s border security measures are in place.

The border security measures were crafted under the leadership of Senators John McCain and Jeff Flake, Republicans from Arizona. If anyone knows a thing or two about what it’s like to live next to a border, and what border security our nation needs, it’s these two. The border security measures include unprecedented steps to make our borders stronger than ever: doubling the number of border agents, completing 700 miles of fencing and adding new technology to provide 100 percent surveillance. As a member of the group of eight lawmakers who drafted this bill, I am grateful for the input and feedback Coloradans gave us during the process. We came together to fix a broken system and address one of our nation’s major challenges. Now, we’re on the doorstep of success; Colorado needs the House of Representatives to take action and pass a bill so we can solve these problems for our economy and our communities. Michael Bennet is a Democrat who has represented Colorado in the U.S. Senate since 2009.

Faith plus talent can add up to purpose What do you like to do? What are you good at? It matters. The purpose of your life is unlocked in the answer to those questions. You are invited to experience a part of my discovery of that truth. At 2 p.m. Aug. 11 at the Philip S. Miller library in Castle Rock, eleven other local authors are going to join me in talking for five minutes each about books we have written. Then our books will be for sale for those who want to buy one and we will all proudly sign your copy. My book is “Welcome to the Big Leagues — Every Man’s Journey to Significance.” Maybe you can tell by the title that it is about a big-league ball player. In the process of getting to know Darrel Chaney, shortstop and utility player for the, arguably, best team ever to take the field, The Big Red Machine Cincinnati Reds, I discovered that he and I had a common problem. We each had an identity crisis. He was not happy about his place on a team of superstars and I was not happy being a utility-player pastor of small churches during the era of the megachurch. But we both discovered that our role was important and that our lives mattered. The library event is “The Castle Rock Douglas County Libraries Local Author Showcase.” I appreciate the library giving guys like me the opportunity to showcase our work and talents. “Vampire Vic” is the title of Jason Gray’s and Allan Harris’ book. They will be there too. For at least 10 years we have been talking about the struggles, breakthroughs, disappointments and joys of writing while hanging out at Crowfoot Valley coffee shop. Writing is a craft that we are working on. It has become a passion and, at least for me, it is a place where I

find inspiration, revelation and an outlet to express it. For Allan, Jason and me it is writing, but everybody has talents in areas of what they like to do. Music is the passion for many. My life has been enriched by musicians, like my wife and brother, who can hear harmonies, keep rhythm and reproduce music vocally or through the keyboard. Cooking and hospitality is an awesome talent that brings people together around a meal with delicious flavors, aromas and, usually, friendly conversation and laughter. Artists’ works inspire thought and interpretation. Builders construct structures that house our lives in the comforts of home or in productive business environments. People who are good with numbers account for all we have or hope to have. Maybe they become brilliant engineers who design engines, rockets, bridges and ways to make them. Pursuing our interest and talents is where we find meaning and our lives make their greatest impact. When I, as a hospice chaplain, attend a death, the fondest memories the family tells of their loved one often revolved around their talent. The most memorable was the night I arrived at a tiny West Denver house. It was neat as a pin and the whole family recalled how much

But the unforgettable part of the story was, just after he passed away, the cuckoo clock that had not worked for years suddenly popped out with the time again. Many of the churches of our town encourage people to discover, pursue, develop and use their talents. In the 139th Psalm we are taught that our aptitudes were put into our lives by design when we were being knit together in our mother’s womb. Jesus, in Matthew 25, warned people not to hide their talents but to use

Local man heads foundation project in rural mountain village By Tom Munds

tmunds@ourcoloradonews.com Bob Moore, a former Littleton businessman, headed the Casa Unida Foundation group of about 30 volunteers who recently traveled to a rural mountain village in Nicaragua to begin construction of two classrooms and to help needy families weather a season of bad crops. The foundation is an all-volunteer, nonprofit organization based in the Denver area. Casa Unida was created in 2004 to strengthen the foundation of families and communities in Nicaragua. The organization works primarily in the rural mountain areas where poverty is the normal condition of the residents. The group tries to provide humanitarian, medical and education assistance to help the people. Moore, who is president of Casa Unida Foundation, said the July 14-27 trip was a success. “Our foundation planned and organized the trip that worked on the classrooms,” he said. “We got a lot done on the construction project and we also helped a lot of needy families.” The group arrived in Nicaragua July 14 and the flight was followed by a long 200mile ride on a school bus to Somoto, a city in the Nicaraguan mountains that was their base. The next day the group of volunteers from Ohio, Colorado and Florida traveled by truck about eight miles to the work site

in the rural village of La Rioja to begin work on the classrooms. “My first task each day was to shop for bread, meat and cheese as well as some fruit for lunch for the group,” Moore said. “They also put me to work at times on the construction site as I helped sift sand for mortar and do other tasks. Everyone pitched in to get things done.” At the site, local workmen put in the foundation and the team began work constructing the brick classroom walls. No power tools were used, so it meant the mortar was mixed on the ground, truckloads of bricks were unloaded by hand, sand for the mortar was screened to remove rocks and twigs, and water was hauled by hand about 100 yards from the well to the work site. “This is my first trip like this and I really had no expectations,” said Enid Claxon, an Ohio schoolteacher. “The work was hard, but it was great the way everyone was right there to help with tasks or to take over so someone could take a break.” The foundation worked in conjunction with the Church of the Nazarene, so members of the group did one-day vacation Bible school programs in five small villages. They also undertook another aspect of the project that involved helping needy families. Most of the families in the area are subsistence farmers, raising corn and beans with the hope there will be extra to sell or trade for rice, a staple of their diet. This was a bad crop year for many families, so Casa Unida volunteers Monty and Renee Schmidt of Longmont headed a fundraising project and used the money to buy staples in Nicaragua that were given to families. The group prepared food bags contain-

About 30 volunteers went on the trip organized by Casa Unida Foundation. ing items such as rice, beans, salt, sugar, matches, spaghetti and soup. The group worked with local representatives to make sure the 270 food bags were given to families with the greatest needs. Lucia Martinez had tears in her eyes when she was given a food bag. “I have two children and it has been hard to provide for them,” she said through an interpreter. “This is a wonderful gift to our family. We really appreciate it and God bless those who provided this gift for us.” The construction project got most of the walls erected. William Ramon Sando-

val, foreman of the local team of workers, said plans are to install the doors and windows, pour the concrete, install the tile for the floor, erect the roof and have the classrooms ready for use by the end of August. The people of the community held a celebration to say farewell and thank the group for their work. “The farewell celebration was very emotional,” Moore said. “About 200 people from the area were there and each of them shook our hands and thanked us. We worked hard but the people thanking us, their smiles and their hugs made the trip worth it.”

Couple celebrates dual milestones Pair who met at Littleton High School mark 75th anniversary By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@ourcoloradonews.com Their hair is grayer, their memories a little faded around the edges, but their hands hold each other just as sweetly as ever. Gladys and Clinton Bush wanted very much to get married, but they had to wait until he turned 21. But they couldn’t wait a minute more than that, so they got married on his 21st birthday. “He wanted a nice present,” said Mrs. Bush. “And it actually was a Saturday, and we decided to get married on a Saturday. “I thought it was a good time, and I wouldn’t forget it,” said Mr. Bush. The date was July 30, 1938. Last week, Mr. Bush turned 96, and the couple celebrated 75 years together. The two met on the tennis court at Littleton High School, when it was in the building that is now the Littleton Public Schools administration building on Crocker Street. She says she saw him playing, turned right around and went home to get her racquet and a wingwoman. It just took him a day or two to ask her out, she remembers, and she agreed to see a movie at Woodlawn Theater.

The Essence of Leadership John Brackney, President and CEO of the South Metro Denver Chamber, is passionate about the role of leaders in building a strong, vibrant community. In April, 2013 he embarked on a project to highlight great leaders among Chamber investors and within our community. In a partnership with Julie McCahan of Reach Summit Consulting, they identified outstanding leaders that inspire us to the next level of performance who will be interviewed and their philosophies distilled. Equally important, is how they, as leaders, make invaluable contributions to “community” which can be local, statewide or international in scope. These leaders understand the importance of building strong communities now and for future generations. Over the decades much has been written in an attempt to convey the qualities, skills and characteristics of successful leaders. Amazon.com

lists nearly 90,000 books on the subject of leadership and management as it relates to leadership. A search on Google returns 463 MILLION links to articles, books, videos, and academic research papers. We are fascinated with the topic of leadership, but the topic is not an easy one to grasp. This series of articles will be dedicated to highlighting how each leader describes “the essence of leadership.” “What is meant by the term, Essence of Leadership?” Jonathan Brynes, Senior Lecturer at MIT and an entrepreneur asks. “We know leadership when we see it. But just what are the key ingredients of powerful leaders?” Ingredients of leaders has been sliced and diced in every literary venue from biographies to doctoral dissertations. Yes, we recognize leaders - but what makes them “leaders?” In this series we will strive to uncover the core essence of leaders.

Becky Takeda-Tinker

In place of skills and styles, we will focus on the core qualities of great leaders in our immediate community. An unknown author wrote: “Leaders are people who leave their footprints in their areas of passion.” This initiative is dedicated to walking in the footprints of the leaders who work and volunteer within our immediate community.

Becky Takeda-Tinker: Passion Partners with Vision Good leaders have passion and most good leaders have vision. However, there is a difference between good leaders and great leaders. What makes great leaders distinguishable is their capacity to meld passion with vision. A leader who exemplifies the remarkable blend of passion with vision is Becky Takeda-Tinker, President of CSU Global Campus. What makes Dr. Takeda-Tinker a great leader? It begins with her insight into our need, as a nation, to maintain our competitive edge and to and sustain our role as a global leader among nations. Her vision translates into an educated work force that produces exceptional goods and services and keeps people actively engaged in a productive society. Her vision is global while her passion is local. Her passion radiates from a deep conviction that an educated work force keeps our economy strong. As she speaks about her passion for education it focuses on the importance an individual makes within an organization. A great leader will impact all within their sphere of influence. Quickly she cites the IT industry as an example: Bill Gates - as an example whose vision and passion to

The couple made a comfortable home for their two daughters in the Cornerstone Park neighborhood. “Littleton was our home,” said Mrs. Bush. “It was a small town, and we knew everybody, and we had wonderful neighbors. We never locked our door.” Their shared love of golf led them to become founding members of Pinehurst Country Club in 1958. “It was a happy time of our life,” Mrs. Bush said with a smile. The two say most times were good, really. Mr. Bush said he knows when to keep his mouth shut and just go golfing. Mrs. Bush said he never, ever gets mad. She uses the word “content” a lot and says it’s the key to a happy life together. “Just to be content with each other, and to be nice. To care for each other, and to care for their feelings,” she said. Their daughter, Kathy Burg, says they are great role models. “What I’ve learned from my parents is compassion, and to listen to other people, and to be aware of their feelings,” she said. Caregiver Laurie James has only known them a year or so, but she agrees. “Gladys has taught me to accept what’s going on during the day and be content, and if you’re not happy with how something is going, you need to change something,” she said.

create user-friendly computers impacted the IT industry beyond the realm of what was thought possible 40 years ago. While Steve Jobs proved the axiom: “If we build it, they will come.” With a passion springing from a deep well within, Becky knows she will can play a significant role in converting her vision into a reality. Her passion for education will impact us as individuals and collectively as a productive society. Another aspect of Becky’s passion extends to inspiring others. Her perpetual advice is: “Think Strategically.” As a member of the Chamber’s Board of Directors her goal is to always realize a win-win-win in any situation. The three win is defined as a win for you, a win for SMDC the Chamber and a win for the community. Come walk in Becky’s footprints and challenge yourself to identify your win-win-win opportunity. The South Metro Denver Chamber’s brand promise of “Remarkable Relationships and a Thriving Community” embraces the concept of individual leaders making their mark on the business community and society as a whole.

Chick-fil-A meets with concerned residents By Tom Munds

tmunds@ourcolorado news.com Concerns about increased traffic and objections to altering the route of an alley were the most frequently raised issues about a proposed Chick-fil-A restaurant during the July 31 neighborhood meeting. About 35 local residents attended the meeting at Englewood’s Mayflower Church, where company representatives described their proposal for the Chickfil-A restaurant they want to build at Dartmouth Avenue and Broadway. Troy Kelts, project engineer with Merrick and Co., said the proposal is buy the site that runs west to

Acoma Street and includes two houses. The plan is to demolish the two buildings that were used to house Funtastic Fun and build a 4,600-square-foot building on the site facing Broadway. The houses would also be demolished to create the waiting area for the drivethru and to build a 54-space parking lot. The building would include inside seating for 120 plus an outside seating area for 24 customers. A franchisee will run the restaurant and traditionally, a restaurant this size has between 75 and 100 full- and parttime employees. The site will have to be rezoned to accommodate the project. The zoning change to a planned unit

development takes four to six months. Residents can again express opinions about the project, as the rezoning process requires public hearings before the planning and zoning commission and city council. If the rezoning is approved, the company will buy the site and hope to begin work by next spring. After the presentation, several neighbors expressed concern about the traffic the restaurant would generate, adding congestion to an already congested Broadway-Dartmouth intersection and to Acoma Street. “Your plan shows an exit onto Acoma. We already have too much traffic on Acoma and that will make it worse,” said Rich-

ard Burton, area resident. “The traffic speeds through our neighborhood and the street is always busy. This won’t help things.” Resident Heidi Anderson agreed. She said it is hard to get in or get out of Acoma at Dartmouth. She said the additional traffic would add to the congestion and make it harder for resident to be able to park on the street. Another issue is the proposal for the alley between Broadway and Acoma. Chick-fil-A proposes closing the south end of the alley and creating a 90-degree turn from the alley into the store’s driveway that exits on Acoma. Beverly Cummins was emphatic that the company should leave the alley alone.

She told the company representatives to do what they want otherwise but not to change the alley route. “We have 13 garages opening onto that alley and you want to change the route,” she said. “We don’t appreciate you taking our land, messing with our alley and messing up our neighborhood.” However, other residents said the additional traffic is an issue but having a successful business in the neighborhood is better than having an empty building. Sarah Yarbrough said she favors the project. She said she worked for Chick-fil-A in Georgia and the company scholarships helped her go to college. She also said there were rules in place

designed to make the jobs available to local residents and students. Steve Lewis, senior development manager for Chick-fil-A, said the company wants to be responsive to the concerns of area residents. “The reason I am here is to hear your concerns,” Lewis told the audience. “We will work with our designers and the city to see what we can do to address as many of your issues as possible.” After the meeting, Anderson said she is much more positive about the project than she was before. “I feel they listened to us and will try to do what they can to answer our concerns,” she said.

About 300 employees will report to work there starting in October; 130 of those will be new hires. “One of the things we hear is that folks are looking for their specialty services in the communities where they’re located,” Whited said. “This is really going to meet that need.” The new building is the first in a phased development that eventually will encompass a 20-acre integrated health campus. Services available starting in December will include infusions, obstetrics and gynecology, oncology, general surgery, ambulatory surgery, allergy, gastroenterology, orthopedics and clinical palliative care. Additional specialties, such as cardiology, endocrinology, neurology and dermatology, will be added during the second phase of development. The new building also includes several west-facing outdoor patios and a perimeter walkway for walking meetings and exercise.

Money available to train employees MATCH offers wage subsidy Staff report Colorado businesses looking to grow their workforce can now receive a wage subsidy to offset the costs of hiring and training new employees. Maximizing Area Talent for Competitive Hires, or MATCH, is an on-the-job training program funded by the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment that will reimburses businesses for up to 90 percent of a new employee’s wages, up to $6,000 per hire. Reimbursements are intended to assist with costs of training new hires, and the percentage is determined by the company size, according to Arapahoe/ Douglas Works!, the program administrator. “A r a p a h o e / D o u g l a s Works! will pre-screen suitable candidates from our

pool of talent that matches your business hiring needs, and then offer a wage subsidy while you get your new employee up to speed with on-the-job training,” said Arapahoe County Commissioner Bill Holen. Current full-time and part-time on-the-job training opportunities include: administrative assistants, general laborers, cash tellers, security officers, production assistants, human resource assistants and others. To qualify, a business must have been operating in Colorado for at least 120 days, pay into workers’ compensation and unemployment insurance programs, and must not have had a layoff within the past six months. Businesses must sign an agreement with Arapahoe/ Douglas Works! before hiring an individual and agree to hire the trainee as an employee of their company.

SaddleUp! gala reins in local jet set Airport event benefits equine therapy ranch By Deborah Grigsby

Craft winery is hidden gem Point Blank offers tastings of limited-release products

ABOUT POINTE BLANK Point Blank Winery, 6547 S. Racine Circle, Suite 1400 Centennial, CO, 80111, Phone: 720-328-2513 Web: www.pointblankwinery.com Tasting room hours: Thursday, Friday: 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday: 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. Other days and times are by appointment. The winery is available for private parties and events. Winery tours are available for the asking.

By Deborah Grigsby

dgrigsby@ourcoloradonews.com At first glance, the Point Blank Winery in Centennial might look like another empty storefront in a nondescript industrial park. With nothing more than simple block letters on a dark smoked glass door, nothing really points to the local treasure that’s inside. But for those who do find their way to 6547 S. Racine Circle, they’ll will find one of the best-kept secrets in town, along with some of the best in limited-release, seasonal craft wines, not to mention a classy, hidden tasting room where a sip of something special is always in order. Think speakeasy. At just 25 years old, winemaker Erin Ozgen blends, bottles and boxes wines that feature multiple grape varieties to create an original blend that is balanced, flavorful and unique. “I ship in varietal concentrates from northern California and blend them myself,” she said. “We are a craft winery by nature and produce only a few select wines at a time, somewhere around 300 cases, so

Winemaker Erin Ozgen blends new wines with old habits at her Centennial-based Point Blank Winery. The 25-year-old sommelier produces about 300 cases of small-batch craft and seasonal wines. Photo by Deborah Grigsby far.” A graduate of the International Wine Guild in Denver, Ozgen said the winery strives to offer interesting wine blends that suit the taste of both wine connoisseurs

and the casual wine drinker alike. Rich dark wood and vintage music from the likes of Ella Fitzgerald complement the Ozgen’s Classy Brass, a dry white Chardonnay blend; At Last, a medium-dry rosé wine

blended with Grenache; and High Society, a soon-to-be medium-dry to sweet Riesling that pairs with a variety of foods. The cozy, candlelit tasting room pairs nicely with after-hours get-togethers and small private parties. Ozgen said the winery, which opened for business in December 2012, gets its quirky name from one of her late-night study sessions while attending sommelier school. “I kept misreading Pinot Blanc as point blank, and the name just stuck,” she said. Current labels are available only in the tasting room, which is open Thursday through Saturday. Tastings are always on the house. Wine is sold by the glass, $4 and by the bottle, $15.

Mount Evans journey can recharge soul If you’re looking for a new, close-tohome adventure, or just want to treat your out-of-town guest to a real taste of Colorado, consider Mount Evans. It’s another world up there. The scenery and views are positively breathtaking, the wildlife abundant, and the weather much cooler than the dog days of summer at the lower elevations. The road leading to the 14,000-footplus summit is the highest paved road in North America. The ride twists and climbs through some of the most spectacular mountain views and points of interest in Colorado. Along the way and easily accessible is Echo Lake. It is regularly stocked and provides good fishing. There is a restaurant and gift shop overlooking the lake. Farther up the road is Summit Lake, complete with a parking lot, restrooms, trailheads and more great views. Wildlife, although not always visible, include: deer, elk, bighorn sheep, yellowbelled marmots, pikas and the ever-popular mountain goats. The lambs are about as cute as any baby animal can be, but also one of the toughest. Life above the trees can be a very inhospitable environment, where many life forms cannot survive the eight months of an alpine winter. Wildflowers are abundant this time of year. Indian paintbrush, wallflower, fireweed and others dot the landscape. Interesting also are the “crooked wood” bristlecone pines that grow just below timberline. The remains of the historic Crest House, built in 1941, sit just off the main parking

lot at the summit. Vehicle access allows just about anyone to enjoy the trip to the summit. But if you’re up for it, climb the 200-foot “rock pile” at the summit. A rocky trail leads the way. You won’t believe the view and its effects on your inner self. If you go, bring extra clothing, water, snacks, etc. The summit has its own weather, which can change quickly. Brisk to strong winds above timberline can be expected. Be aware of fast-moving storms and lighting. Altitude sickness at 14,000 feet is always a possiblity. Shortness of breath, fatigue, headache or dizziness are some of the symptoms. They can usually be relieved by heading back down to lower elevations. And don’t forget to charge up those camera batteries before you leave home. You’ll want to take a lot of pictures. Tony Lane, the former police chief of Castle Rock, is an avid outdoorsman and wildlife photographer.

Depot hosts 30th All Colorado Show Arts, entertainment abound at Western Welcome Week By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews. com Each year, the Depot Art Gallery, housed in a red 1881 Santa Fe Railroad depot in downtown Littleton, stages its annual All Colorado Show, drawing artists from across the state to submit entries. The 30th annual show is open through Aug. 25, with extended hours during Western Welcome Week. Watermedia artist Pat Fostvedt, a nationally known painter, critic and judge, was the 2013 juror and selected 60 works from more than 230 submitted. She is a signature member of the Rocky Mountain Watermedia Society and the Colorado Watercolor Society. Her own distinctive works combine casein and gouache with transparent watercolor paints, to allow her to create flat areas. Her painting, “Last Dance,” is exhibited at the Depot. It features aging sunflowers on a stalk. Fostvedt awarded the Best of Show ribbon to a mixed media painting by local artist Merrie Wicks for her skillfully rendered “Golden Prisms.” It shows precise control of technique and almost sparkles. First Place went to photographer Joe Bonita for his engaging “Topographical Nude in Blue,” which invites closer inspection.

Festival showcases true spirit Events highlight this year’s theme By Jennifer Smith jsmith@ourcoloradonews.com ndependence, fortitude, true grit, a little bit wild — that’s the “Spirit of the West,” and it’s this year’s theme for Western Welcome Week. While the festival has always embodied that spirit, some of the events take it more to heart than others. For example, folks can mosey on down to South Platte Park from 9 a.m. to noon Aug. 10 to experience what brought a slew of pioneers west in the first place — gold panning on the South Platte River. South Suburban Parks and Recreation provides all the equipment, and those who strike it rich get to keep whatever they fi nd for free. The park is off Mineral Avenue west of Santa Fe Drive. Stick around to Stampede! for Open Space — same time, same place — and find out what life was like for a trapper. There are crafts, educational displays and oldfashioned games for the kids.

Grand marshal a true people person Facchinello sees friendship as most important thing By Jennifer Smith jsmith@ourcoloradonews.com oan Facchinello, 79, says she’s not ready to give up her ponytails. “My individuality says I’ll just keep them,” she said. “When I grow up, I will use makeup, dress up, cut my hair and do all the right things. Until that time, I’m just who I am.” The ponytails suit Facchinello, the 2013 Western Welcome Week grand marshal, chosen to embody the theme, “Spirit of the West.” “`Spirit of the West’ means that you can survive, and you can participate, and you grow with things,” she said. “You see what people endured and how they did things with nothing. It’s the adventure. You never say you can’t do something, you fi nd a way to do it.” She’s also the epitome of

J

WWW’s slogan, “Celebrate Community.” “I’m a people person,” she said simply. “That’s just what it’s all about.” Ken Coddington says that’s the best thing of a lot of great things about Facchinello. She was his secretary when he was a principal at Littleton Public Schools, where she worked in a variety of capacities for 33 years. “She really cares, and she follows through and is always there to help,” he said. The two have also worked together for the Rockies baseball franchise, and Coddington once saw her give the jacket off her back to a fan of the opposing team on a really cold day. Little things like that are a staple of her life — she sews Rockies patches onto stocking caps and hands them out to kids who look like they need them. She gives blood prolifically. She organizes reunion lunches for LPS employees and Jaycees. She volunteers at an assisted-living facility and takes treats to clients of Arapahoe/Douglas Mental Health Network.

Her official job with the Rockies is helping people in wheelchairs get to their seats. “That is a priceless job, the best job in the whole world,” she said. For years she took pictures of the fans so they could have a keepsake — just because she wanted to. She once attended a funeral for one of them and was touched to see the photo she took next to the coffin. Facchinello doesn’t belong to any formal organizations, but she participates in the activities of many. She donates Rockies attire to Inter-Faith Community Services, takes tickets at the Lions Club BBQ during WWW and so much more. “She is a Littleton treasure,” said Cindy Hathaway, WWW executive director. “She is so giving to so many and has been an unbelievable supporter of Western Welcome Week. We are honored to recognize her as our Grand Marshal and to award her with the Western Welcome Week Houstoun Waring Lifetime Achievement Award.”

Joan Facchinello is this year’s Western Welcome Week grand marshal, embodying the “Spirit of the West.” Photo by Jennifer Smith Facchinello’s family moved a lot when she was young, and she thinks that’s partly why community and lasting friendships are so important to her now. “It’s friendships that I am proud of,” she said. “I truly believe friends are the most important thing in the whole world.” Littleton’s many opportunities for fellowship are what make it so special, she says. “You feel welcome everywhere you go,” she said. She and her husband of 62 years, Ray, met when she was in seventh grade at Grant Junior

High School, now the Littleton Public Schools administration building. “Good ol’ Ray and crazy Joan, they called us,” she remembers. “It was one of those things that was truly meant to be.” Her biggest regret in life, she says, is standing up a nice boy in high school. She always felt guilty and meant to apologize, until she heard he’d died. “You can hurt somebody’s feelings just as easy as you can make them happy,” she said. “You want people to remember the good things about you.”

New events help keep tradition fresh Decades-old festival not getting stagnant By Jennifer Smith jsmith@ourcoloradonews.com

W

estern Welcome Week is proof that you can teach an old dog new

tricks. Even though the festival itself is back for its 85th year, it’s always evolving and welcoming new events — and one such event this year just happens to involve Fido. The Best of the West Pet Fest features Clydesdales, pony rides,

live bulls and bunches of animals more of the household variety available for adoption. From noon to 4 p.m. on Aug. 18, families can take Fido to Aspen Grove to listen to live bands, join in pet parades and enjoy food and beverages for sale. The free event benefits the Humane Society of the South Platte Valley, which cares for lost, stray and unwanted animals in Littleton and surrounding areas. Another newbie will be hard to miss for anyone planning to visit downtown on Aug. 11. The Littleton Criterium Bicycle Race, sponsored by the city and Pedal Bicycle Shop, is a sanctioned event expected to lure

hundreds of bicyclists to compete in the quest for the Rocky Mountain Road Cup. Downtown will be transformed into a closed figure-eight circuit where fields of up to 120 riders will hit top speeds of more than 40 mph. “Criterium racing is the cycling equivalent of NASCAR,” said Bill Nagel, co-owner of Pedal. The highlight of the day will be the professional men’s category at 3:50 p.m., when locals will compete alongside professional cyclists for 70 minutes of all-out racing. Visit www.littletoncriterium. com for more information.

Other new or fairly new events to consider adding to your favorites include: Pancake Stampede 5K Run/Walk, 8 a.m. on Aug. 11 at Hudson Gardens. 303-4837029 or www.sspr.org.

Mates from Bega making rare visit Littleton’s set to fire up the barbie for sister-city folks By Jennifer Smith jsmith@ourcoloradonews.com ots of Western Welcome Week events happen every year, but a special one only happens twice a decade. Littleton will celebrate a long-awaited visit by residents of its sister city, Bega, Australia, from 10 to 11 a.m. Aug. 15 at the downtown park named in its honor, on Rio Grande Street between Main Street and Alamo Avenue. Mary Recht, the Littleton/ Bega Sister City Exchange’s event coordinator, hopes to put the city’s best foot forward by greeting the 11th Bega contingent with a reception complete with 18-piece band, local refreshments and large showing of Littletonites.

“The public is encouraged to join in the fun on Main Street and help show our sister-city guests the true Littleton hospitality,” said Kelli Narde, the city’s director of communications. Littleton has enjoyed a 52year alliance with Bega, established by former Littleton Independent publisher Houstoun Waring and Curly Annabel, the editor of a newspaper in Bega. The U.S. State Department and U.S. Information Agency in 1951 made “Small Town Editor,” a film they showed in foreign countries to encourage an independent press to compete with government-controlled news. It was filmed in Littleton and featured Waring, who had achieved national recognition for his editorials on foreign affairs. According to begalittleton. org, Annabel saw the film and was entranced by the similarities between the towns and their newspapers. He reached out, and a friendship was born that became formalized in 1961 with its

Afterward, stop by the Bin Bonanza at the Depot Art Gallery, 2069 W. Powers Ave., to rope in a bargain on unframed artwork. There’s a literal stampede on Aug. 11 — the second annual Pancake Stampede 5K Run/Walk. It starts at 8 a.m. at Hudson Gardens, 6115 S. Santa Fe Drive, and runs down the Mary Carter Greenway along the river. It includes a ticket to the WWW Family Pancake Breakfast so runners can get some vittles across the street at Arapahoe Community College, 7:30 to 11:30 a.m. The breakfast is reminiscent of an

old-time, after-church picnic, with a pancake breakfast, old-fashioned cake contest and the WWW Kids Games of Old, including cow milking, a sack race, apple dash and more. The cutest stampede of all is at 10 a.m., when the littlest cowpokes compete in the 18th annual Bruce Wolf Stick Horse Stampede. The Elks get in on the Old West theme with their Hometown Pig Roast & Dance, starting at 6 p.m. Aug. 16 in the lodge parking lot at 5749 S. Curtice St. Roast pig, baked beans, coleslaw, corn on the cob and a roll ($9, or kids can get chips and a hot dog for $4), plus rare public access to the lodge’s full cash bar inside. Before hoedown-ing the night away with the Elks, stop by First Presbyterian Church of Littleton, 1609

There are lots of fun things planned for them, including riding in the 85th Western Welcome Week parade on Aug. 17, a dinner at Mount Vernon Country Club, a bus tour of Colorado Springs and a Barn Dance & BBQ grand finale. “The Littleton/Bega Sister City Committee is very proud of the relationship that has developed between the communities,” said Charlie Blosten, the city’s director of public services. “Bega Park is a focal point for downtown Littleton, with commemorative plaques and flags representing the sister-city exchange.” Blosten’s staff has been hard at work sprucing up the park in time for the welcome party. But in an ironic twist, a dawn redwood planted in Bega’s Littleton Gardens in honor of the cities’ kinships was recently removed to make way for a playground, according to Australian reporter Bill Brown.

“Western Heritage Art” will be exhibited in Stanton Gallery on weekdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. through Sept. 10. A Meet the Artists Reception will be from 6 to 8 p.m. Aug. 15. Stanton Gallery is in Town Hall Arts Center, 2450 W. Main St., downtown Littleton. 303-794-2787.

Sarah Phippen and Martin Lambuth will be the featured artists in Stanton Gallery at Town Hall Arts Center during Western Welcome Week and through August. “Western Heritage Art” is the title for their joint show. Phippen, who grew up in Douglas County, where she “soaked up sun, dirt and dander that continue to influence her choice of subjects,” creates oil paintings and bronze sculptures, which especially celebrate her longtime association with animals: pets, livestock and wildlife. “Observing the personali-

ties and expressions of horses, cattle and wildlife allowed me to experience their quiet moments along with them or read trouble in their eyes and burst into movement. I see this heritage as part of our age-old relationship with animals. It is part of being human. There is a wonder and privilege that surrounds us every day in the rich variety of relationships available …. How does a horse smile?” Martin Lambuth paints with old credit cards instead of brushes, which results in rich textures and layers of color. He

He writes of the appeal of their wonderful shapes, rounded fenders and amazing grills not found on today’s vehicles. Lambuth has been juried into many national and local shows and won a first place at the 2012 Denver County Fair.

Book’s action is mostly interior Character’s minds provide scenes in ‘Kind of Cruel’

if you go Author Sophie Hannah will appear at the Tattered Cover/Colfax at 7:30 p.m. August 9 to talk about and read from “Kind of Cruel” and to sign books. The address is 2526 E. Colfax, Denver. 303-322-7727.

By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com British writer Sophie Hannah’s action in “Kind of Cruel” takes place to a great extent within the minds of her characters, interpreted/aided by hypnotherapist Ginny Saxon, whose office is in a small wooden structure at the rear of her home. No chases through busy city streets or in glitzy office buildings, but a focus on words on a slip of paper and puzzling motives of a collection of characters lead one to turn the pages. Hannah, who will be in Denver Aug. 9, has published six previous books featuring perceptive police detective Simon Waterhouse and his wife, Charlotte “Charlie” Zailer. Simon reminds a reader of great British crime solvers such as Sherlock Holmes and Miss Marple, who piece elements together until there is a solution to the crime(s) at hand. She writes this book in several voices — one sometimes needs to revisit the beginning of a chapter to sort that part out — including italicized print for psychotherapist Saxon, who carries the story along. Action takes place from Nov. 30 to Dec. 10, 2010. Hannah tried hypnosis herself to add depth to her story and sort out what the process might mean. She writes that the

British thriller author Sophie Hannah’s “Kind of Cruel” was just released in the U.S. She will appear in Denver Aug. 9. Courtesy photo idea came to her in part from a Canadian fan, whose address looked like a hypnotherapy site. The carefully crafted words come across

as written by a scholarly sort — Hannah, who lives in Cambridge with her husband and children, is a Fellow Commoner at Lucy Cavendish College, a women’s college started at Cambridge in 1965. We first read the phrase “Kind. Cruel. Kind of Cruel” as insomniac Amber Hewardine struggles to figure out its meaning — and its involvement in a murder she is accused of. She embarks on hypnotherapy to cure her chronic insomnia and seeks the meaning of her visual remembrance of those words, written on a school tablet. When and where did she see them? Various characters in her extended family, including a husband and two young daughters of a murdered friend, are developed with enough depth so they have distinctive voices, and settings are pictured with enough detail to make them real, including a Cobham country house called Little Orchard, which almost becomes another character. Numerous story threads are finally woven together in the final pages, as they should be in any satisfying thriller. The reader feels like she has returned from a brief trip.

Lovebirds Randy Richmond and Theresa Blanding started feathering their nest in Boulder landmark McGuckin Hardware 12 years ago. The couple spent so much time in the Boulder store that they joked if they ever married, the nuptials would be cemented in the tools department. On July 21, accompanied by a small band of well-dressed family members and close friends, Richmond and Blanding walked hand-in-hand down aisle 16 — the tools department — to hammer out their future together. The betrothed, being snapped by Blanding’s son, Lucian, strode in sync along the waxed floor lined with circular saws. “McGuckin’s has been here forever and it’s so useful and practical,” Richmond said. “Marriage should be practical as well as romantic.” Aaron Tye, a McGuckin automotive employee, made the celebratory announcement over the intercom system. Customers greeted the news with cheers and applause. Not surprisingly, the couple requested McGuckin gift cards for wedding presents. The couple is planning a honeymoon in Paris. “People need consistency in their lives,” Richmond said. “All roads lead to McGuckin.”

Zany comedy on stage in Golden ‘Wonder of the World’ is fast-moving journey By Sonya Ellingboe

Spotlight Performing Arts returns to area Studio has new home in Highlands Ranch By Sonya Ellingboe

if you go Spotlight Performing Arts Center is at 6328 E. County Line Road (just off the service road) and information is available at: spotlightperformers.com or 720-443-2623.

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com In 2005, Teresa Hill-Putnam sold her Centennial performing arts studio to Colorado Ballet and moved her family to St. George, Utah, so two of her children could attend a performing arts high school and gain professional experience there. She ran a studio while living in Utah. Both children have graduated and she decided to move back to Colorado to continue her 28-year career as teacher and director. “This is home. I decided to reopen what we left,” although a bit smaller (300-400), so kids don’t get lost, she said. Her older daughter Ashley, a professional performer and choreographer for the past six years, has joined forces with her and has been in Colorado for several months organizing, promoting and painting the new studio. Teresa and younger daughter Amber, 9, who is also a dancer, arrived more recently, and the first order of business was to build a new stage. The new center at 6328 E. County Line Road is open and will feature a dance studio, the stage and theater space that will seat about 100, plus training in musical theater and vocal performance as well as dance. The lobby will also serve as a music instruction space and small dance boutique. “Some kids come in wanting a profession and others want a recreational experience,” Teresa said. The center will offer a range of opportunities, tailored to individual needs.

For those who seek musical theater, there will be a production every 15 weeks. (Auditions for “Annie” will be on Aug. 16.) A vocal performance company, “Spotlight Entertainers,” is new here, although Putnam offered it in her Utah center. A preprofessional dance company will entertain locally and on a cruise ship, with auditions scheduled for August 17. “Little Mermaid” is underway, but there may be a few spots open in that. Performances will be Sept. 2728 and Oct. 4-5. “Bye Bye Birdie” is planned. Teresa writes her own scripts. “Kids are more capable than people give them credit for,” she says. “Practice makes progress” is the motto. Preschoolers, ages 2 to 6, will attend morning classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays for dance, with tumbling added. Children 5 and older, through teens, have numerous options in ballet, tap, jazz, lyrical, gymnastics and musical theater. See the school’s website, spotlightperformers.com, or call 720-443-2623. Studies have shown that kids involved in performing arts do better academically and socially in school, said Ashley, who was valedictorian in her class. And Teresa likes for kids to learn to help others, so they will do benefits. In September they will participate in Chelsea’s Walk to raise funds for epilepsy, especially for response dogs and monitors that can predict seizures. (Amber has epilepsy.) “I plan to do a benefit once a month,” Putnam said.

Central City steers ‘Showboat’ to Buell Opera company hopes to draw city crowds

if you go

By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com “Showboat,” written in 1927 by Jerome Kern and Oscar Hammerstein II, has become a classic in American musicals, with its rich story and score and a deeper look at American society than was customary in musicals of the day. In addition to light, happy production numbers, it looks at racial prejudice and tragic love. The well-known songs “Ol’ Man River,” “Make Believe” and “Can’t Help Lovin’ Dat Man” are often heard in concerts across the country. It is Central City Opera’s third selection of its 2013 Festival and will be performed in Denver at the Buell Theatre, Denver Performing Arts Complex, Aug. 6-11. Two other shows were performed at the 1877 stone opera house in Central City: “Barber of Seville” and “Our Town.” But that house only has 550 seats, so even a sold-out house doesn’t generate the sort of revenue it takes

The company has strong support from many donors, but it hopes that a week’s production in a large house will draw the DCPA’s many musical theater fans as well.

Hal France returns to lead the Central City Opera Orchestra, and cast members are Gene Scheer, Denise Lute, Julia Burrows, Emily Pulley, Angela Renee Simpson, Troy Cook, Soloman Howard, Curt Olds and Ellen Kaye. An additional “Riverboat Royale-Mardi Gras Ball” is hosted on Aug. 10 at the Dikeou Collection, 16th and California streets, Denver. (Ticket for matinee and ball-$95.)

correction An Aug. 1-2 story about Colorado Book Award winner Carolyn Mears included an

error about the funding for her doctoral research. She funded her research herself.

An old Marilyn Monroe film plays on the back stage wall as the audience anticipates what’s next. Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright David Lindsay-Abaire’s comedy, “Wonder of the World,” is set in the 1990s in New York state. As lights go up, Cass (Haley Johnson) is in the bedroom, packing her suitcase, planning to run away, carrying the audience on a harebrained journey with her. Her husband Kip (Matthew BloodSmyth) appears with a plate of salmon aspic for lunch and she tells him she’s leaving him to start a new life — really offended by something in his dresser drawer. Next scene (there are 13 total scenes, but the funny crew makes changes seem part of the act): Cass is on a bus headed for Niagara Falls, seated next to a suicidal alcoholic named Lois (Lindsey Pierce), who is more than glad to help herself to the salmon aspic Cass is carrying with her. Staging is very clever in this production — we find Cass and Lois on the Hurricane Deck at Niagara Falls, with sound effects and projected falls, and later on the Maid of the Mist boat, where Captain Mike (Christian Mast) makes pompous historic announcements as he mans the wheel. Kip send an inept detective couple in search of Cass and their story weaves into the mix, as does the captain’s tale of his wife’s tragic death via a four-pound jar of

Christian Mast is captain of the Maid of the Mist Niagara Falls boat and Haley Johnson is his somewhat aggressive passenger in “Wonder of the World” at Miners Alley Playhouse in Golden. The couple lives in Centennial and Mast is an Arapahoe High School graduate who started his theater career there. Courtesy photo by Sarah Roshan peanut butter. Two favorite scenes involve talented, comical Erica Johnson, as a helicopter pilot over the falls and as various waitresses in a scene labeled “Various Restaurants.” She also appears as a marriage counselor — wonderful timing and sense of humor, thanks to a quirky, talented American playwright. (His “Fuddy Mears,” “Kimberly Akimbo” and “Rabbit Hole” have appeared in Denver in the past six years.) Eventually, miscellaneous parts and pieces come together in this comic chronicle and the audience leaves with a smile. This is the first production under Miner’s Alley’s new management and the choice bodes well for the future.

Author shares joy of multiple languages Haitian-born writer is teacher in Denver By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews. com Writer, teacher, poet — Nicole Weaver of Centennial was born in Haiti, the youngest of six, where her language was French; moved to New York at age 10 with her family, where she quickly learned English; won a full-ride college scholarship and eventually became a teacher. She has taught French and Spanish in Denver Public Schools for 22 years — now at South High School. She speaks about the joy she found in the “Curious George” books, which her New York teacher read to the class. They helped her learn English as she enjoyed the pictures and story content. While in college, she spent a semester in France, living with a family in Alsace-Lorraine. She hoped for a job as United Nations translator when she graduated and got a community-college job teaching French and Spanish while she prepared for the necessary exam. “I realized my passion for teaching and helping students

and went to graduate school at Bank Street College of Education,” she said. The next move was to Texas for five years, where she met her husband, a native Coloradan of German ancestry. Their first child was born and they moved to Littleton in 1989 — “I have been here since.” Her children are now 25, 23 and 17. When her first, a daughter, left for Pepperdine University in California, Weaver became seriously depressed and a helpful friend took her to a meeting of children’s book authors and illustrators for a presentation on writing picture books. “Write about what you know,” that speaker advised, planting a seed. She remembered being out collecting sea shells and finding a sea turtle stranded upside down on the beach near her Haitian home, and calling on her dad to help her get it back into the sea. Alas, he sent the cook to collect it for soup, but she wrote a picture book with a happier ending about a little girl who rescued a turtle — “Marie and the Sea Turtle.” She self-published that one, so she could be sure the child was black — “It’s my story.” (Generally, a commercial publisher contracts for illustrations and the author

had a story in the paper,” she recalls. The tri-lingual book is her trademark and is repeated in “My Sister is My Best Friend,” about the closeness of twins — and the forthcoming “My Brother is My Best Friend,” due in 2013. The illustrator, Clara Batton Smith, provided by her publisher, lives in Australia, she said, and did a fine job of capturing the spirit of her story. She wants to send the message that there’s nothing wrong with being smart — especially for African-American kids. She is rewriting a middle school book previously published, which needs sounder editing, she said. English is not her first language and she still makes some errors in grammar, which embarrass her. She recently attended a class at the active Light House Writers Workshop in Denver, where the rewrite was suggested. Another future project will be writing something supportive for biracial kids, who have their own set of challenges. She recalled that at Pepperdine University, people wanted to place her daughter in some sort of category — “What are you?” Her books are available from Amazon or from her publisher at guardianangelpublishing.com.

Americans vs. Europeans U.S. players determined to get cup back

Stanford

Wie

U.S. Solheim Cup captain Meg Mallon has a motivated team ready to defend its home turf at the prestigious biennial international match-play tournament that will be held Aug. 13-18 at Parker’s Colorado Golf Club. Twelve U.S.-born players will challenge 12 European players in three days of match-play competition to see which team will win the Waterford Crystal Cup with a mahogany base that is named for Karsten Solheim, the founder of the manufacturing corporation that makes PING golf equipment. The U.S. has won eight of the 12 previous Solheim Cups and the Yanks are 6-0 in home matches. However, Europeans stunned the Americans in the weatherdelayed singles matches to defeat the U.S., 15-13, and capture the Cup two years ago in Meath, Ireland. “You know, every Solheim Cup is so close and it’s an exciting event, and Ireland was just an unbelievable event and I had some players on the team that are highly motivated,” said Mallon. “They didn’t like that taste in their mouth and they are ready to get the Cup back.” British Open champion Stacy Lewis heads the U.S. team. Paula Creamer, Cristie Kerr, Angela Stanford, Brittany Lincicome, Lexi Thompson, Jessica Korda, Brittany Lang, Lizette Salas and Morgan Pressel also qualified for team spots via points or rankings. Gerina Piller and Michelle Wie were captain’s picks. Eight of the U.S. players have played in a combined 25 Solheim events and have won 52 points. Creamer is 11-3-5 in four tournaments to garner 13½ points and Kerr is 11-12-3 in six Cups for 13½ points. Pressel has also been one of America’s best with a 7-2-2 record in three years. “We’re playing on all cylinders right now and I’m really excited about it,” said Mallon.

By Jim Benton • jbenton@ourcoloradonews.com

Lewis and Creamer didn’t retreat from the Europeans’ celebrations after their victory in Ireland. “I wanted to remember what it felt like,” Lewis told GolfChannel.com. “With everything that happened that week, we probably still should have won. We’re all ready to go and we want that Cup back.” Creamer says being on the losing team didn’t feel good. “It was a terrible feeling,” she said. “I’d never been on a team that lost. That’s never going to happen again.” European captain Liselotte Neumann will have players from eight countries on her team that will try to retain the Cup. Eight players were automatically selected via points or rankings. Those players were Suzann Pettersen (Norway), Carlota Ciganda (Spain), Catriona Matthew (Scotland), Caroline Masson (Germany), Beatriz Recari (Spain), Anna Nordqvist (Sweden), Karine Icher (France) and Azahara Munoz (Spain). Jodi Ewart Shadoff (England), Caroline Hedwall (Sweden), Giulia Sergas (Italy) and Charley Hull (England) were captain’s picks. Hull is 17 years old and the youngest player in Solheim Cup history. Five golfers on the European team have played in a combined 17 Cups and won a total of 39½ points. Matthew is 118-8 and Pettersen 12-8-5 and both have played in six Cups. More than 120,000 fans are expected to watch and see if the Americans can remain unbeaten at home and regain possession of the Cup. “We’ve never won over there (United States), so obviously it’s a big challenge,” said Neumann. “I feel like this is really the team that’s going to do it for us. “We’ve got some young girls, we’ve got some rookies, so we’ve got some big strong players and some players that can really hit it, which I think favors us.

Colorado, the golf course is quite generous off the tees, and we were looking for good, long hitters and some girls with great energy and I think this is the team that is going to do it.”

Bicycles welcomed With Colorado being a well-known haven for outdoor enthusiasts and exercise

aficionados, the Solheim Cup is allowing and encouraging golf fans to ride their bicycles to Colorado Golf Club. Cyclists and anyone attending will be able to ride their bicycles to the course and bike racks will be provided. Anyone wishing to bike to the event will need to have their tickets in hand and will not be able to purchase tickets upon arrival. Cyclists will only be allowed to enter Colorado Golf Club via the east gate (Lot V) off Stroh Road, past the main (west) entrance. Directional signs will guide them to the correct entrance and Lot V.

Hickenlooper to speak Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper will deliver remarks at the main stage near the clubhouse during opening ceremonies Aug. 15. “We welcome the Solheim Cup to Colorado and are proud to showcase our state’s world-class outdoor recreation opportunities,” Hickenlooper said. “Colorado is the perfect location to host an international golf event, from our excellent fairways to the breathtaking backdrop of the Rocky Mountains, this will be a great experience for players and viewers. We wish both teams the best of luck and hope they enjoy their Colorado experience.” The ceremonies will be broadcast live on the Golf Channel at 5 p.m. and will feature the appearances of both teams, as well as comments from Mallon and Neumann. Fans are encouraged to attend the ceremony, which will officially kick off the three-day competition. Ceremonial raisings of the team flags will also be held and both captains will announce their pairings for the first Foursomes matches that will take place Aug. 16.

Cabela’s offers sneak peek of Lone Tree store Aug. 15 opening expected to lure thousands of visitors By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com Camouflage-clad Cabela’s employee Jake Merritt sounded a duck call to direct Denver-area media from the parking lot into the nearly complete Lone Tree store July 30. Merritt set the tone for the sneak peek event, held two weeks before the store’s Aug. 15 public opening. Inside, Cabela’s employees lounged around a faux campfire, surrounded by Cabela’s tents, backpacks, a lantern and cooler. Others offered samples of the store’s signature fudge and demonstrated fly fishing and archery. Another sounded a duck call from inside a camouflage blind — all of it under the eyes of mounted wildlife posed high on the walls of the 110,000-square-foot store. The employees were playful, the excitement palpable. “We expect thousands of people lined up before the ribbon cutting,” spokesman Joe Arterburn said. “They’ll probably be some overnight campers.” Other Cabela’s employees, known as outfitters, said they’re anxious to share the store with the public. “We want to show customers what we can do,” senior hard line manager Jeff Surry said. “Our job is to create that legendary Cabela’s experience. “We cater to people that are going to go hunting in minus-20-degree weather to people that just want to hang out in the back yard in their flip flops.”

The Cabela’s experience, Surry said, includes taking a personal interest in customers, matching their outdoor abilities with the right gear and even pointing anglers to the state’s best fishing holes. “We know where to go and how to get there,” said Jeff Butler, a former Colorado Division of Wildlife employee and lifetime fly fisherman who will work in the fishing department. “We’ll pull out maps and show you. “They’re not just hiring clerks in this store. They’re hiring outfitters who have knowledge. It’s not just selling you something. We sell fun.” Kirby Boos, popping out of a camouflaged duck blind to demonstrate game calls, clearly was having fun. “I’ve had a passion for teaching people about the outdoors all my life, and now I get to do it every day,” said the Littleton resident. In the gun library, Toby Spanel proudly pointed to a late 1800s Winchester rifle bearing a $32,500 price tag he said the Arapahoe County sheriff ordered during the City Hall War of 1894, a conflict prompted by the then-governor’s attempted forcible removal of several City of Denver employees. It’s among several collector guns featured in the library. “I feel really honored to be able to work here,” Spanel said. The Lone Tree store also includes a mountain replica with mounted game animals, which Cabela’s calls its conservation mountain. It includes an interactive display with information on each of the mountain’s species. Other features include two coldwater fish aquariums and a cafe. Cabela’s hired more than 200 employees at its Lone Tree site,

Store employee Kirby Boos of Littleton demonstrated duck calls during the July 30 media sneak peek at the Lone Tree Cabela’s. The store will open to the public Aug. 15. Photos by Jane Reuter the larger of two Denver-area stores opening simultaneously. A 90,000-square-foot store also will debut in Thornton. Doors open on both stores at 11 a.m. Aug. 15. The company, launched in 1961, bills itself as the largest mailorder, retail and Internet outdoor outfitter in the world.

Jeff Surry, left, a manager at the Lone Tree Cabela’s, pauses during a July 30 tour with Denver-area media at the Lone Tree store’s centerpiece — a mountain replica depicting North American game.
