‘Equipment closet’ loans medical supplies for free Caretakers and those recovering can get wheelchairs, walkers and more

FREE DONATED, CLEANED EQUIPMENT For people recovering from surgery, having older relatives visit, waiting for permanent equipment to arrive or experiencing other need, South Metro Medical Equipment Loan Closet offers the following, for free, for periods of up to three months: • Wheelchairs and transport chairs

BY ELLIS ARNOLD EARNOLD@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Debra Pontious, a 46-year-old who lives in Commerce City, has taken care of her grandfather, grandmother and mother-in-law, and now, she’s looking after her own mother. After a stroke, her mom lost use of her right side, and Pontious came to the South Metro Medical Equipment Loan Closet pick up a wheelchair — four days earlier, she borrowed a bed. An experienced staff asked Pontious her mother’s weight and height on July 3, searching for the right equipment. “They had everything I needed,” said Pontious, who has seen the high cost of medical items elsewhere. She’s used another service in the past. “But it’s hard to get a hold of them,” Pontious said of the service she used earlier. “These guys are really easy to get a hold of.” Just off a bustling highway intersection, the South Metro Medical Equipment Loan Closet sits tucked behind a post office near the middle of Centennial. It’s a discreet, industrial-looking location, but inside, volunteers offer a personal touch. “It’s helping people who are hurting or needing, and that’s what I did all my life,” said Vicki Griffith, a retired occupational therapist who lives in southeast Aurora. “When I retired, that’s what I was missing.” Griffith, 68, is one of about 20 volunteers who help the nonprofit loan out items such as wheelchairs, shower benches, bedside commodes,

Dallas Court, has grown to provide hundreds of pieces of equipment each year and fields several calls per day — but it started out of a 10-by-10 shed at a local church after founder Donna Ralston found inspiration. “I have a history of mission trips,” said Ralston, a Centennial resident. “On a trip in Guatemala, (I learned) someone had started one of these in Kansas. The idea would not let me rest. After two years of thinking, I recruited a bunch of people, and that’s how we got started.” SEE SUPPLIES, P6

• Health aids, sock aids, reachers • Bariatric items Other items are listed on www.medicalequipmentloan.org.

HOW TO VOLUNTEER, DONATE, ARRIVE The South Metro Medical Equipment Loan Closet needs volunteers, who answer their cellphones some days between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. to set up appointments to meet clients to take in donations or loan out equipment. Most volunteers take calls two or three days per month and pick the days on which they help. There are no requirements for who can volunteer. Cash donations are needed for paying rent, insurance, cleaning supplies and repairs. Donations are accepted in cash, checks and online at www.medicalequipmentloan.org. The loan closet operates by appointment and is available during the week and Saturday mornings, depending on when volunteers are available to assist clients. Its inventory is online at www.medicalequipmentloan.org, up to date daily. It provides equipment to anyone, regardless of income or any other criteria. The phone number is 720-443-2013. Located near East Arapahoe Road on the east side of Interstate 25, the loan closet at 6825 S. Dallas Court in Greenwood Village can be accessed by turning south on South Dayton Street, right at East Costilla Avenue, right into the lot at South Dallas Court and then driving about half a block north. On the left, the loan closet has a door and a few parking spaces.

5 things to know: Inverness business corridor Unincorporated area sits near central Centennial

unincorporated areas near Centennial often do. But the City of Englewood’s southeastern-most boundary is far away, near Belleview Avenue and South Broadway. The U.S. Postal Service designated many unincorporated places with Englewood and Littleton mailing addresses, even though those areas are not in the cities of Englewood or Littleton.

BY ELLIS ARNOLD EARNOLD@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

When drivers get off Interstate 25 at East Dry Creek Road, they may have the familiar feeling of cruising through the Denver Tech Center. But although the street signs may look similar, that area is Inverness Park, an unincorporated area just outside Centennial that roughly sits between I-25 and Centennial Airport, and between East Geddes Avenue and E-470. Unincorporated means an area isn’t within a municipality, overseen by the county government and other entities. It’s home to apartments, hotels, retail and restaurants, a slew of high-profile businesses and even a golf course. Here’s a rundown of Inverness’ features, its history and how it is run. Ranch land to business center Inverness was once mostly ranch land, according to Laurie Tatlock, an administrator for Inverness Park. “But there was a restaurant and a couple businesses at the dead end of County Line (Road) near I-25 on the east side,” Tatlock said. Inverness Park’s first buildings were constructed in the 1970s, around the time the Inverness Water and Sanitation District formed to handle water infrastructure in the area. The land was known as Inverness Business Park, dropping the “business” from its name when residential units became part of

ELLIS ARNOLD the area. Construction on residential buildings began around 2006. Along with apartments, the area includes duplex and triplex units, townhomes, and condominiums, Tatlock said. It doesn’t have any single-family homes. Metro district Some heavy lifting of forming the area came through the Inverness Metropolitan Improvement District, a kind of governmental body that formed in 1980 to build infrastructure and roads. Unincorporated areas, such as the larger Highlands Ranch, are sometimes governed by metropolitan districts, which can offer some government services. Despite its name, Inverness isn’t a business improvement district, a slightly different type of entity. The Inverness metro district is funded by property taxes, Tatlock said. Places in Inverness generally have Englewood mailing addresses, as

On the greens Near Inverness’ south end sits the large John Derry Park, with three softball fields, sand volleyball courts, a basketball court, a pavilion picnic area and pedestrian paths. The Inverness metro district coordinates softball and volleyball recreational leagues each summer, according to its website. Leagues are open to the public, but Inverness commercial- and residentialbased teams have registration priority if the leagues are filled. Links for the league rules are provided at www. invernessmetro.com/recreation. The Club at Inverness golf course also runs through much of the middle of Inverness. The semi-private course is open only to members, their guests and guests of Hilton Denver Inverness hotel, according to the hotel’s website. Bustling business Along with the retail and restaurants, Inverness includes office, light industrial and warehouse buildings, Tatlock said.

Douglas County School District offers free summer lunch program BY ALEX DEWIND ADEWIND@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Six years ago, the Nutrition Services team at the Douglas County School District enacted the Summer Food Service Program and served 10,000 free meals to kids and teens across the county. This summer, Jennifer Peifer hopes to raise that number to 40,000. “There is not a community in this country that does not need this program,” said Peifer, manager of operations for the school district’s Nutrition Services team, comprising 20 employees. Federally funded, the Summer Food Service Program is a state-administered program that reimburses school districts that serve free meals to adolescents and children in low-income areas, according to the Department of Agriculture. Douglas County enacted the program to address a need: 11.9% percent of students in the district qualify for free or reduced lunches, according to the district. That breaks down to 8,092

students in grades pre-K through 12. Free meals are available to those 18 and under, Monday through Friday, from May 28 to Aug. 2, at 12 sites across Parker, Castle Rock and Highlands Ranch. Menu options, which vary at each site, typically include an entrée, such as a burrito, a side of fruit and milk. All kids and teens are welcome, and no identification is required. To locate the nearest site throughout the state, parents can use the Kids Food Finder website at kidsfoodfinder.org, or text “Food” or “Comida” to 577-577. “It’s open to any kid,” Peifer said. “There are no requirements, there are no preconceived notions about who are coming and eating at our sites.”

The construction of 252 apartments, a complex called The Palmer, should be finished by the end of summer, Tatlock added. A regional district Most of Inverness sits in Arapahoe County, but the south end reaches into Douglas County. The district works with both counties and Centennial to maintain roads, traffic signals, signage and landscaping in Inverness, according to its website. The district is managed by Mulhern MRE, a company that provides financial, engineering and other services to government bodies. The district also participated in the construction of the Dry Creek Road and County Line Road pedestrian bridges connecting Inverness to the nearby RTD light rail stations. The area is a benefit to Centennial, too, said Allison Wittern, city spokesperson. “Inverness and the other communities surrounding Centennial all have a positive impact to Centennial’s economy,” Wittern said. “As with all surrounding cities, people that work nearby may shop, grab lunch, visit a park (or) go to the doctor in Centennial — all benefiting Centennial’s economy.”

ccording to author Wade Pfau, Ph.D., CFA in an article in Retirement Researcher, financial planning research has shown that coordinated use of a reverse mortgage starting earlier in retirement outperforms waiting to open a reverse mortgage as a last resort option once all else has failed. Reverse mortgages Kathy Muni have transitioned from a last resort to a retirement income tool that can be incorporated as part of an overall efficient retirement income plan. Two benefits give opening a reverse mortgage earlier in retirement the potential to improve retirement outcomes, even after accounting for loan costs. First, coordinating retirement spending from a reverse mortgage

mortgage is not repaid until the last borrower leaves the home. Silver Leaf Mortgage also offers proprietary reverse mortgages for eligible condominiums that are not FHA approved, and for homeowners who are 60 years old. Additionally, you may use a reverse mortgage to purchase a property and will have no mortgage payment. Of course, you will pay property taxes and insurance. reduces strain on the investment portfolio, which helps manage the risk of having to sell assets at a loss after market downturns. Reverse mortgages can help sidestep this risk by providing an alternative source of retirement spending after market declines, creating more opportunity for the portfolio to recover.

The second potential benefit of opening the reverse mortgage early—especially when interest rates are low—is that the principal limit (the overall eligible amount consisting of any loan balance and remaining line of credit) that you can borrow from will continue to grow throughout retirement.

C-470 express lanes project nearing completion Three-year project expected to save motorists upwards of 18 minutes of travel time BY ALEX DEWIND ADEWIND@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Officials from the Colorado Department of Transportation anticipate that the longawaited C-470 express lanes project will wrap up at the end of 2019, likely in December. “(The) contractor expects all lanes will be open but there might be crews on site for several months following to do finish work, perfecting some issues, landscaping etc.,” Linda Wilson, a spokeswoman for the project, said in an email. “We also have to take into consideration some of the normal obstacles that can delay a project such as weather, material availability and crew availability.” The C-470 Express Lanes project — which kicked off in late 2016 — will add two tolled express lanes westbound from I-25 to Colorado Boulevard, near the South University Boulevard exit, with one tolled express lane continuing westbound from Colorado Boulevard to Wadsworth Boulevard. One express lane will be added to the eastbound

stretch from Wadsworth Boulevard to I-25. The project will also see bridges and overpasses widened, curves realigned and the addition of noise walls along populated parts of the corridor, among other tweaks, according to CDOT materials. The project is expected to save motorists upwards of 18 minutes of travel time on the roughly 12-mile stretch between I-25 and Wadsworth Boulevard during rush hour. Tolls will vary depending on traffic flow and would range up to $6 to travel the entire express-lane corridor during peak hours. The goal is to keep all motorists moving at 45 mph or faster. Roughly 100,000 drivers use the segment of highway every day, according to CDOT, with volumes projected to increase 40% by 2035. Douglas County funded $10 million of the project’s $276 million cost. An additional $110.6 million came from state and federal funding. Toll revenue will fund the remaining balance, along with costs of highway maintenance and operation of the express lanes. For convenience and cost savings, motorists can purchase an express lanes pass at www.expresstoll.com. After creating an account, a customer will receive a transponder to place inside of his or her vehicle. Tolls will be automatically deducted from the customer’s pre-paid toll account.

After three years running as of July, and one year of operating in its current location, the organization wants to keep growing. From July 2016 through June 2017, it loaned about 200 pieces of equipment to 126 people. In its second year, it loaded out more than 570 pieces to 277 people, according to a brochure. “The need for volunteers is increasing due to the number of people we serve,” said Ralston, 72, who is a volunteer herself. Some older organizations and churches offer medical items, Ralston said, but they aren’t always as inclusive. “I found if you aren’t a veteran or a senior connected to a senior center, or go to a church, you don’t have options,” Ralston said. “There really wasn’t anything in the south metro area.” About 70% of the organization’s clients are older than 65, but some younger people call after ski accidents, for example, Griffith said.

State’s Behavioral Health Task Force kicks off BY ALEX DEWIND ADEWIND@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Lawmakers, state leaders and mental health professionals who make up Colorado’s Behavioral Health Task Force convened for the first time July 1 to explore solutions to the state’s high suicide rate and barriers to mental health care. “I think it’s fair to say we have a broken system and we have an opportunity to fix that as a task force,” said Michelle Barnes, chairwoman of the task force and executive director of the Colorado Department of Human Services. “The will to Barnes make a difference starts at the top.” The task force, with the help of three subcommittees, is working to develop a “Behavioral Health Blueprint” for the state to improve cracks in the behavioral health system. The kickoff meeting, held as a roundtable discussion in a packed conference room at the Douglas County Department of Human Services building in Castle Rock, with members of the public in attendance, began with impassioned introductions. The state

received roughly 500 applications for the committees, which each have about 25 members. The task force’s executive committee is made up of six members: Barnes, Lt. Gov. Dianne Primavera, Douglas County Deputy Manager Barbara Drake, Colorado Insurance Commissioner Michael Conway, Colorado Department of Health Care Policy and Financing Executive Director Kim Bimestefer and Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment Executive Director Jill Hunsaker Ryan. “It’s really important that we get this right,” said Hunsaker Ryan, who previously worked as a commissioner in Eagle County, where the suicide rate is historically high. On April 8, Gov. Jared Polis signed an executive order directing the Colorado Department of Human Services to head the behavioral task force. Annually, Colorado pledges more than $1 billion to its behavioral health system, but the state ranked 43rd on Mental Health America’s 2018 mental health index, which is based on 15 criteria, including mental illness prevalence and access to care.

Parents invited to attend TASK FORCE academy in August FROM PAGE 9

Sheriff’s office deputy will host the program BY ALEX DEWIND ADEWIND@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

A program hosted by the Douglas County Sheriff ’s Office for students and parents in the community unveiled a new logo and updated curriculum for the 2019-20 school year. The sheriff ’s office created Y.E.S.S. — Youth Education and Safety in Schools — 10 years ago for middle and high schools in the Douglas County School District. Instructors primarily teach middle school students in seventh- and eighth-grade health classes about teen relationships, internet safety and substance abuse. School resource officers help out at the high school level by teaching courses on abuse, sexting, dating violence and the use of Text-A-Tip, a confidential reporting service. Y.E.S.S. also hosts a Parent Academy specific to concerns facing parents, including internet safety, substance abuse and physical/emotional safety. The next Parent Academy will take place from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Aug. 19 at the sheriff ’s office substation in Highlands Ranch, 9250 Zotos Drive. The Rotary of Castle Pines and Denver Springs will provide free lunch. Space is limited. To register, email pharvey@dcsheriff.net. Douglas County Deputy Jay Martin, lead instructor of Y.E.S.S, will discuss the program’s new curriculum, which is based on current research, statistics, trends and guidelines from the Colorado Department of Education. Martin also considers input from DCSD health teachers and authors of books he recommends to parents. “We don’t change everything, just update what is needed,” Phyllis Harvey, program coordinator, said.

Colorado is 10th in the country for the highest suicide rate, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The three subcommittees under the task force are each charged with finding solutions to different challenges in the state’s behavioral health system. The goal of the State Safety Net Subcommittee is to ensure all Coloradans have access to care in their communities, regardless of “acuity level, ability to pay, or co-occurring disabilities,” according to state’s website. The Children’s Behavioral Health Subcommittee is focused on better outcomes for children. The LongTerm Competency Subcommittee is tasked with developing a comprehensive plan for individuals in the criminal justice system, along with solutions to increase community intervention. “I deal with people every day who think the response to every problem is more prison beds,” said Dean Williams, executive director of Colorado’s Department of Corrections. “There is an opportunity to do some big work in this state.” The task force and subcommittees will meet periodically over the next year at various locations. Meeting times will be listed at www.colorado.gov/pacific/cdhs/coloradobehavioral-health-task-force. Representatives from the Farley Health Policy Center, named after Dr. Eugene Shedden Farley, a leader in the first generation of American family physicians, will facilitate the meetings. Members of the task force stress the importance of their mission and the difference

Shades of gray look a lot less shady top me if you’ve heard this one. The day I found my first gray hairs, I QUIET thought I’d

dye. DESPERATION Today’s essay is about gray hair. I like gray hair. Americans are not allowed to grow older gracefully. We are reminded at every turn that youth will be noticed and served. And that trying to Craig Marshall stay forever young, while an impossibilSmith ity, can be achieved with dyes and injections.

I don’t always know who has had injections, but I (almost) always know who has dyed their hair. Somewhere along the line, gray hair got a bad reputation, and it continues to this day. There is absolutely nothing wrong with gray hair, and most of the time it looks far better than the opaque alternative. Our skin and our hair age together. Jet black hair and 60-70-80-year-old skin is an incongruity. Some of us, obviously, prefer the incongruity. I began to have gray hair when I was in my early 20s. I couldn’t believe it. I wasn’t happy about it. And then I saw someone my age who had

a full head of gray hair. It was a comedian named Steve Martin. When I realized that having gray hair didn’t seem to bother him, it no longer bothered me that I had gray hair. Actors and actresses have their hair dyed for various roles all the time. Martin’s hair was dyed black for his roles in “Dead Men Don’t Wear Plaid” and “My Blue Heaven.” He looked completely different, but it was right for those two performances. However, some dye jobs don’t work out so well. The next time you watch “You’ve Got Mail,” take a close look at Tom Hanks’ hair. It’s so unnaturally

r c black that it becomes a distraction. a I have sometimes wondered what it a would be like to be a celebrity. w I have sometimes wondered what c it would be like to be celebrity, whose i looks are pre-eminent. i We have all seen plastic surgery P gone wrong. In some cases, very s wrong. Some actors and actresses have grown old in front of our eyes without exaggerated attempts to preserve a G memory.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Lack of morality is problem Predictably, various committees are forming and meeting to discuss “causes of school violence” and related topics. It is interesting to note that these “leaders in mental health, education and the criminal justice system” make no mention of the absence of morality in our society as a significant component of school shootings, other mass shootings and a plethora of social ills.

ago) when morality, integrity, selflessness and personal responsibility were emphasized in our homes, churches, classrooms and the community at large. We now live in a society plagued with problems because the major emphasis is teaching people “it’s all about me.” Morality has been cast aside because many people proclaim it to be “too religious.” SEE LETTERS P13

here was a recent video that made its way around social media and the news. It was the story of two Minnesota high school baseball teams playing in a playoff game, and the winner would be movWINNING ing on to the WORDS state championship rounds. The story wasn’t about the teams, one coming out with a win and a trip to state and the other taking the loss ending their Michael Norton season. It was about two friends and a display of true friendship and loyalty. As the game was down to the final out, the pitcher was facing not only his opponent, but also his best friend. He struck him out to win the game and advance his team to states. But as his team rushed on to the field to celebrate, the pitcher rushed to home plate to hug and console his friend. It was an amazing display of an awesome friendship. There have been many friends in my life, people who I have enjoyed spending time with personally and professionally. Sometimes as we all know, friendships can come and go

as we move into different seasons of life, change careers, move or relocate to a different city or state. And sometimes friendships can dissolve over a dispute or disagreement, and many times over the smallest or silliest things. When I watched the video of these two friends and opponents, it warmed my heart to see such F friendship and loyalty. It reminded me of the friends I have had for several decades, men and women i who have been more than friends c and who feel more like family. t There have been times where dis- t tance has been a factor, busy sched- w ules, and we may not see each otherc or talk for six months or more, but j b when we do, it feels like we just talked the day before and we pick e up right where we left off. Then there are the friends whom c I speak to several times a week, if s not every day. We see each other of- r ten, we share our deepest concerns,w we celebrate our successes, and we t would do anything for one another. i Loyalty is never questioned, love s and trust are the foundations to the a friendships just as love and trust are the foundation to any good relationship. If I ever needed anything, I know I could call them, and they know if they were ever in need that I would be there for them as well.

One of my closest friends said it best, “I would rather have a tight circle of three to five very close friends than to have a large circle of acquaintances.” He made this comment as we talked about having the ability to confide in a friend without worry of judgment or that the information will be shared with others. This feeling is underscored in Proverbs 18:24, “A man of too many friends comes to ruin; but there is one who sticks closer than a brother.” In the rush and crush and crazy pace of life, we sometimes get caught up in trying to be everything to everybody. When in fact, we can be that one friend who sticks closer than a brother, or sister, and build those trusted friendships. Zig Ziglar says, “If you go out look-

Paleo, keto dieters

July 11, 2019J

LIFE

Proponents say eating healthy is easier than ever as diets gain popularity BY CASEY VAN DIVIER CVANDIVIER@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

F

or the past four years, Littleton resident Kimberly Spomer has attended a support group. The group of roughly 25 people consists of like-minded individuals seeking community and advice as they follow the paleolithic or “paleo” diet and other low-carb diets. “You go out to eat, and it can be difficult feeling like you’re the only one,” she said. “The group is this really strong community. We know each other, we watch each other’s progress, we share tips and books that we’ve read.” Known as the Low-Carb and Paleo Support Group, the monthly meeting is run by Denver’s Diet Doctor at 7720 S. Broadway and facilitated by health care professionals Dr. Jeff Gerber, Erynn Kay and Jennifer Hooker. Members give each other cooking and shopping tips and encouragement after days gone wrong, Spomer said. The group showcases just one way low-carb dieters have come together as the trend establishes itself in the mainstream. Though some point to a falling number of Google searches for the term “paleo,” Spomer and Gerber hold that low-carb diets are hardly fading away — especially in Colorado, which ranks as the number one state for Google searches of the terms “paleo” and “keto.” The keto diet — on which dieters sharply restrict carb intake to put the body into ketosis, a metabolic state in which stored body fat is used to produce energy — has particularly gained popularity. In January 2019, 11 times more users searched the term than in January 2017. Spomer said the trend shows through attendance at Low Carb Denver, a March conference she volunteers with. The conference drew more than 800 individuals in 2019, as opposed to the roughly 300 who attended in 2016, she said. For many, low-carb diets represents a treatment for chronic and lifealtering conditions — as was the case for Spomer, who has an autoimmune disease that left her with “no energy,” she said. “I would consume half as much as my family and gain half a pound a week.” After trying different autoimmune protocol diets, Spomer landed on a low-carb paleo diet two years ago. She said she hasn’t experienced any of her symptoms since. “Things got a lot better. People are shocked how much it helps,” she said. “It changes everything.” ‘More than just food’ Popularized by former Colorado

The paleo diet is based on a foundation of foods like fish, meat, fruits, vegetables and most kinds of nuts.

POSSIBLE RISKS OF DIETS

DO’S AND DON’TS

While experts praise low-carb, high-fat diets like paleo and keto for their prioritization of natural foods and potential to instigate weight loss, the diets also present some possible health challenges, according to Mayo Clinic.

The paleo diet emphasizes cutting out processed foods and consuming a similar diet to that of humans’ ancestors. The diet can vary in number of restrictions and the intensity of those restrictions. However, those on the diet generally stick to these guidelines:

Because those on the paleo diet cut out whole grains and legumes, the dieters may be deficient in fiber, vitamins and some micronutrients, Mayo Clinic said. The diet also places restrictions on dairy products, which could lead to a calcium or protein deficiency.

Do eat: • Grass-fed lean meat or wild game

Dieters should be mindful of what types of fats, proteins and vitamins they are consuming. High-fat diets also put individuals at greater risk for kidney disease, heart disease and some cancers, according to University of California at Davis Health.

• Nuts (other than peanuts) and seeds

State University professor Loren Cordain’s 2010 book “The Paleo Diet,” the whole-food-based diet encourages mimicry of a human diet thousands of years ago — “the evolutionary way to look at nutrition,” Gerber said. Gerber — who was certified in family medicine in 1991 and has been a healthcare provider in the area since 1993 — and those in his support group focus on a low-carb version of the diet. Strict followers do not eat sugar, grains, margarine, some dairy products and processed food. Instead, they eat natural foods, including meat, fish, eggs, vegetables and fruit. “It’s a little less carbs and a little more protein and fat,” he said. “A lowfat diet is the old school.” Gerber often recommends whole food diets like paleo and keto to his patients, reminding them that choosing what to eat is just one part of the equation. Chef Jami Fynboh agreed. In 2012, Fynboh and her husband, Derek, opened Denver-based mmm…COF-

Located at 910 Santa Fe Drive, the bistro is the nation’s first completely grain-free restaurant, she said. “Paleo is more than just food; it’s a way of life,” she said. “It’s taking care of yourself, getting exercise and having time to relax.” Fynboh has followed the paleo diet for eight years, with Derek joining in a year after her, the day they signed the lease for their paleo restaurant, she said. Throughout years of businesses, she has watched customers develop a better understanding of the diet as all types of people give the lifestyle a try. “We’ve had people who literally got off the plane at DIA and drove to us first,” she said. “They’re from all over. People just want to take their power back and their health back.” A variety of options While following the paleo diet can initially be difficult and requires some online research, she said, “it’s very easy once you know what you’re doing.” Spomer and Gerber echoed the

Don’t eat: • Wheat and other grains • Legumes, including beans, lentils and peanuts • Dairy • Processed foods and refined sugar • Potatoes Source: Mayo Clinic (https://www.mayoclinic.org/healthy-lifestyle/nutrition-andhealthy-eating/in-depth/paleo-diet/ art-20111182) sentiment, highlighting that there are many different methods and levels of strictness on which to follow the diet. Most on the diet can purchase any ingredients they need at stores like Costco or Walmart, they said. “You don’t always have to eat on the top of the food chain of snobbery,” Gerber said. “You can make a meal at a restaurant paleo-friendly.” Gerber suggested ordering burgers and sandwiches without a bun, choosing options low in sugar and asking if food is cooked with industrial seed oils, which are a certain type of vegetable oil. Spomer and those in the support group have put these tips to the test many times, often going out to Red Robin after group meetings, she said. She added that with group members from Boulder to Colorado Springs, who range in age from students to retirees, there’s no shortage of advice to be had in the group. “It’s huge for new people, because low-carb is a learning curve,” she said. “You have to be patient with yourself. Anyone can do it if they want to, and they can do it in all different ways.”

Light is unifying theme in exhibit at museum Painter Jane Guthridge recalls how Colorado caught her eye after move from Midwest

IF YOU GO “Play 0f Light: Works by Jane Guthridge” is at the Littleton Museum, 6028 S. Gallup St., Littleton, through Aug. 25. Open during museum hours: Tuesday to Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Sunday noon to 5 p.m. Admission free. 303-795-3950.

BY SONYA ELLINGBOE SELLINGBOE@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

“We find beauty not in the thing itself but in the patterns of shadows, the light and darkness, that one thing against another creates.” — Jun’ichiro Tanizaki, “In Praise of Shadows.” In the introductory comments beginning a catalog of her works, painter Jane Guthridge speaks of sun and shadow and how she works to capture the changing patterns. Guthridge recalled moving to Colorado from the Midwest “30-ish years ago” and immediately being struck by patterns of light — and clouds that cast shadows. She manipulates materials and light from various sources to create “light forms” that suggest the effects of sunlight in nature — manipulating translucent film, reflective surfaces and color. Walking into her solo

“Reflections of Light” is an installation in Jane Guthridge’s exhibit, “Play of Light” at the Littleton Museum. COURTESY PHOTO exhibit, “Play of Light: Works by Jane Guthridge” at the Littleton Museum through August 25, has an immediate effect on a visitor — what a happy space this is! Floating

installations move gently, shifting shadow patterns and reflections. Other works glow from walls and pedestals — some with intense color, while others present softer surfaces

and hues, layered and framed — or freestanding. At the gallery entrance is Guthridge’s installation “Suspended Light,” with a slender 120-inch rod holding airy, rounded, translucent shapes, strung on slender threads — their shifting shadows playing on a wall just behind them. Step into the gallery past “Suspended Light” to the right to find another intricately conceived installation called “Reflected Light: Littleton Museum.” Guthridge worked with Littleton Museum curators Moira Casey, Jennifer Hankinson and Kevin Oehler to install her works, adjusting lighting to reflect color, some mirrored surfaces — and of course, shadows — all constantly shifting. Freestanding sculptural works are called “Kamorebi,” described as “an untranslat-

able word that captures the effect of sunlight streaming through the leaves of trees.” They are made from highly polished steel, painted on one side, with cut-out patterns. Metal plates are shaped so lighting penetrates each work, affecting reflections and shadows — within and on its host surface. The catalog shows other iterations of this work at different locations, each distinctive and mesmerizing. Guthridge has cumulative experience that lets her predict the effect when all the pieces are assembled and properly lighted. The “Reflected Light” for instance, especially changes with each location. Framed works include precisely cut pieces of Dura-Lar translucent plastic sheeting layered over colorful encaustic and archival inkjet prints on mulberry paper (textured paper, handmade from mulberry bark, widely used by artists for prints, collages, watercolors and other artworks). One can view the exhibit as individual pieces and as a cumulative, sunny, whole experience. Certainly, more than one visit is in order to process it!

The Bible Speaks – progress Projects underway by Littleton Public Schools are said to be a “Work in Progress” in the June 20th Littleton Independent headline. These projects will provide facilities for the present & future educational needs of LPS students. A similar “work in progress” is needed in Christians. Both the present & the future require a believer to be ready to meet the growing challenges & opposition of an increasingly secular society. Are we steeling ourselves with Biblical principles, divine viewpoint, moral absolutes & true answers to respond accurately to human principles, secular viewpoint, moral relativism & false assumptions boldly promulgated by media, schools, politicians & even some religious institutions? Christians, saturate yourselves with Bible verses. Pastors, teach, edify, and strengthen your flock with sound doctrine relevant to today’s issues. Parents, feed & guard your children spiritually as well as physically. Doing this is real progress. hfsmail@basicisp.net

Ken Buck. Of those 14, seven will attend the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, three will attend the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, two will attend the U.S. Military Academy, and two will attend the U.S. Naval Academy. “I’m so proud of these young men and women from Colorado who have committed their lives to protecting this country and accepted the call to duty,” Buck said in the release. “I couldn’t be more confident in our nation’s future because these men and women will be in charge.” Each year, many applicants request appointments to service academies, but only a few are appointed. The service academies offer students an undergraduate education that integrates academic studies with athletic competition and preparation for military leadership. Students requesting a nomination from Buck are evaluated on a variety of criteria including academic background, physical ability, personal recommendations and an evaluation and ranking by the Academy Selection Board.

Summit hopes to change mental health approaches Experts aim for integrated model that focuses on whole person STAFF REPORT

A two-day summit aims to disrupt outdated approaches to mental health by bringing in experts to produce an integrated mental health model that focuses on the whole person. The National Summit for Mental Health and Mental Fitness: Practical Solutions for Creating a Culture of Peace, hosted by The International Association of Human Values and America Meditates, is July 23-24 at East High School in Denver. The event concludes with a meditation session at City Park. More than 46 million Americans experience mental illness every given year. If left untreated, those illnesses can cause tremendous suffering to those impacted and their families and cost the U.S. almost $200 billion a year, the news release said. The summit brings together experts from diverse fields to build a holistic approach for faster interventions, lower-cost treatments and efficient ways to curb violence and crimes through mental health prevention. Experts will discuss and present integrated strategies that enhance positive emotions, life satisfaction and spirituality while addressing biological, cultural and economic approaches to treating mental health. “We’re bringing together incredible thought leaders, change makers and influencers to share their gifts, their ideas, their innovation,” Katherine Winter-Sellery, chairwoman of America Meditates and the summit,

said in the release. “Never has there been a better time to open the dialogue about critical issues in mental health and collaborate across silos, to build innovative solutions, and to address mental illness and its impact in all sections of society.” Attendees will hail from multiple professions, backgrounds and parts of the world, providing networking opportunities to contribute to a movement that changes the way we think about and manage mental health in our communities. Barbara Van Dahlen, founder and president of Give an Hour Psychologist, will open the conference. Van Dahlen is executive director of the task force PREVENTS (President’s Roadmap to Empower Veterans and End a National Tragedy of Suicide) and has been ranked one of the 100 most influential people in the world, according to a news release. Closing the conference is Marianne Wiliamson, an American author, writer and activist. She also is a presidential candidate for 2020. Speakers will include Colorado’s own U.S. Rep. Ed Perlmutter, co-chair of the Gun Violence Task Force in Congress. “This is our opportunity as a community to lead the way for us to be able to model what we can do as a collective to collaboratively support the change that we want and get way upstream on this social situation creating a new social construct — compassion, belonging, and kindness,” Winter-Sellery said in the release. Tickets for the summit range from $75 to $300. The meditation event is free, but registration is requested and donations are accepted. For more details, to purchase tickets or to register for the meditation event, go to summit.americameditates.org.

State getting $12 million to expand apprenticeships Federal money will be bolstered by providers to create positions in health-care industry STAFF REPORT

Colorado will receive $12 million from the U.S. Department of Labor to help provide 5,000 health-care apprenticeships in Colorado’s higher education system. The state has also secured $4.2 million in matching funds from health-care partners across the state.

According to a news release, Colorado’s program will seek to enroll at least 5,000 adults ages 18 and older in paid apprenticeships in growing occupations in health care that demand middle- to high-level skills.

Thirteen Colorado students were awarded the Evans Scholarship, a full housing and tuition college grant offered to golf caddies, following a final selection interview at Lakewood Country Club in Lakewood. Each caddie has a story to tell, reflecting the scholarship’s four selection criteria: a strong caddie record; excellent academics; demonstrated financial need; and outstanding character. They will begin college in fall 2019 as Evans Scholars, with recipients awarded to the University of Colorado in Boulder. The Evans Scholarship has an estimated value of $120,000 over four years. “Each of these deserving Evans Scholars epitomizes what our program has been about since its creation in 1930,” WGA Chairman Frank Morley said in a news release. “Their dedication, hard work and sacrifice is humbling, and we are honored to be able to help them pursue their dreams.” The selection meeting at Lakewood Country Club was one of more than 20 such meetings the Evans Scholars Foundation across the country through the spring. When the 2018-19 selection meeting process is completed, an estimated 280 caddies are expected to be awarded the Evans Scholarship. The Western Golf Association, headquartered in Golf, Illinois, has supported the Chick Evans Scholarship Program through the Evans Scholars Foundation since 1930. One of golf’s favorite charities, it is the nation’s largest scholarship program for caddies. A record 985 caddies are enrolled in 18 universities across the nation as Evans Scholars, and more than 10,830 caddies have graduated as Evans Scholars since the program was founded by famed Chicago amateur golfer Charles “Chick” Evans Jr. “We were fortunate to have 13 awesome candidates from all over the state

The industry is booming with 16,400 health and wellness companies, employing 329,000 workers. From 2012 to 2017, Denver added 43,250 health care jobs to its existing 222,700 workers, representing 10 percent of the total job growth in the region. Coloradans employed in the most in-demand health-care occupations make anywhere from $30,000 to more than $100,00 per year.

LOCAL

SPORTS This sport is the real dill

Pickleball offers more than recreation, socialization

Donnie Gallegos and his wife Patty are mixeddoubles players who compete in many of the local and regional pickleball tournaments. Donnie said pickleball can be competitive. “You have beginners and then you get super-serious and supercompetitive players like any other sport,” he said.

BY JIM BENTON JBENTON@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA

James Pinkel, 69, of Centennial, plays pickleball three or four days a week against a variety of players at the Lone Tree Recreation Center. “There are some who show up to really play the game,” Pinkel said. “Some people are here to say ‘hi’ and if they play a game and lose, no big deal. The sport is getting more competitive and we do have much younger people coming in that can just beat the pants off me.” The sport with a curious name has exploded in popularity. In addition to be considered a fun, recreational game, pickleball has grown into a seriously competitive outlet for many. Today, the sport even has professional players. “No question, there is competition — and at all ages,” said Don Siegel, director for two tournaments at the Apex Center in Arvada. There has been a 650% increase in players over the past six years, according to the USA Pickleball Association. There were 3.1 million players in 2018, according to the Sports and Fitness Industry Association. Numerous tournaments are scheduled in Colorado this summer, including competitions in Englewood and Arvada. Pickleball is particularly popular among seniors. The Sports and Fitness Industry Association reports that 43% of players are 65 years old or older. The sport includes elements of tennis, badminton and table tennis. It’s played with paddles and a plastic ball with holes in it on a 20-foot by 44-foot badminton-size court. It can be played indoors or outdoors, doubles or singles. Siegel believes pickleball gives former athletes another chance to compete later in life, but it is also drawing interest from younger generations. “Commonly, people looked at it as a senior sport, but you are seeing some of the younger tennis players come over and literally change the sport. “Anybody that is truly an ambassador for the sport is happy that the younger generation is acknowledging that this is a fast-paced, aggressive game. It’s like any sport, it can be played aggressively, and very competitively … We’ve got some really competitive 70 (year-old) plus players and others that are here to have a good time, smile and laugh. That’s one of the many beauties of

The following are pickleball tournaments in Colorado this summer, according to Pickleballtournaments.com:

• South Suburban Pickle Dilly Doubles Tournament, Aug. 10-11, Cornerstone Park in Englewood, 5150 S. Windermere St.

• Colorado Pickleball Open, July 12-14, at Apex Center in Arvada, 13150 W. 72nd Ave.

the sport.” Ryan Daberkow, an athletics coordinator for South Suburban Parks and Recreation District, said he wouldn’t necessarily label the sport as becoming more competitive. “It’s just a growing sport in general,” said Daberkow. “People from all age groups are taking an interest in the sport. You get a mixture of skill levels.” But Drew Wathey of the USA Pickleball Association says the competitive level has increased. “As the popularity has increased, it attracts ex-tennis players,” said Wathey, who estimates there are now in the neighborhood of 125 professional players. “The pro division is swelling. Prize money is increasing. Winners can win as much as $2,500 to $3,000. It reminds me of the old Virginia Slims tennis circuit, where they would play for peanuts. We are seeing 10- and 12-year-old kids in some

of our tournaments and players in their 80s.” Colorado has its share of elite pickleball players. Scott Moore, of Colorado Springs, is the No.1 50-plus senior male player in the world and is a 12-time USAPA gold medalist. Moore has mastered a sport in which placement and spin are more vital to success than power and speed. Julie Quisenberry, 76, says the older generation enjoys the competition as much as younger players. “It can get competitive,” said Quisenberry, who recently was playing at the Goodson Recreation Center in Centennial. “We like to keep score. We sort it out among ourselves. There are all kinds of players. One night I played against a 23-year-old kid. “I like the socializing. You meet new people. I started playing five years ago for exercise but it was so

Three men — Joel Pritchard, Bill Bell, and Barney McCallum — are credited with inventing pickleball on Bainbridge Island, Washington, near Seattle, in 1965, according to the USA Pickleball Association. The men were looking for a way to help their families combat boredom, and they developed a game on a badminton court, using table tennis paddles and a plastic ball. One possible reason it became known as pickleball was because the Pritchards had a dog named Pickles that liked to chase the ball used in the new game, according to the association. Another theory: “According to Joel Pritchard’s wife (Joan), she started calling the game pickleball because ‘the combination of different sports reminded me of the pickle boat in crew where oarsmen were chosen from the leftovers of other boats,’” the association’s website states. For more on the game and its origin, go to www.usapa.org. much fun. I was teaching as a substitute but I quit to play pickleball.” Littleton couple Patty Gallegos, 54, and Donnie Gallegos, 52, play singles, doubles and mixed doubles in many tournaments around the region. Competition is one of the reasons. “We started playing and got addicted to it,” Patty Gallegos said. “In the competitive world of pickleball, there is a whole community of pickleball players. You can play for fun or also get into the side of it that is very competitive.”
