A.I. companion to help dementia patients Mohammad Mahoor of the University of Denver will present ‘Ryan’ in Lone Tree

Ryan, the artificial intelligence robot, was developed by University of Denver researchers to help senior patients with dementia. Mohammad Mahoor, a DU faculty member, will present Ryan at the Sept. 29 Living and Aging Well seminar at the Lone Tree Arts Center.

Artificial intelligence is finding its way into senior living homes, and it won’t be long before companion robots are on the market. Mohammad Mahoor, a faculty member at the University of Denver, will present his robot companion “Ryan” at a Douglas County Senior Council Living and Aging Well seminar in Lone Tree on Sept. 29. Mahoor will demonstrate its uses to help elderly patients with dementia. The robot is described as a senior companion and can recognize a user’s emotions through artificial intelligence. Ryan is able to react to a user’s mood and create a sense of empathy with an expressive face. “Patients with dementia mostly are isolated. They have depression, so it can help with depression, first of all,” Mahoor said. “There’s a good need for technology to help dementia patients and elderly people because of the lack or shortage of nurses or caregivers.” Ryan can start a conversation about anything and keep the user engaged. The robot is also equipped

with a screen on its “torso” to play games. Patients can also play music or browse personal photo albums through Ryan. It even reminds patients to take their medicine on time. Gretchen Lopez, the vice chair of the Senior Council of Douglas County, met Ryan and said its ability to be personalized to the patient has been an extraordinary benefit. “The fact that it’s customizable

is fabulous because when you’re dealing with seniors, things that are familiar are comforting,” Lopez said. Mahoor did a pilot program on the robot on a handful of patients in Lakewood and found that different seniors favored different uses of it. Some preferred the converstation and company, while others enjoyed the ability to browse photos or play music. “In a day, they embraced the technology,” Mahoor said. “All of the users were so sad when they took Ryan away from them… some of

And I felt guilty for taking it away from them.” Mahoor said the next generation of these robots can be used to treat children with autism or attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder as well. Children with autism, for example, can find more comfort interacting with robots or objects, Mahoor said, because robots are simpler and don’t have the sensory overload from human interaction. By next year, Mahoor said the robots will be available for commercial use. Lopez found that while some seniors she encountered were wary of the incorporation of A.I., Ryan eventually grew on many of them as they were able to interact with it. “You are going to get that part of the population that is fearful of it and not accepting of it right now,” she said, “but as they get educated of it… it can be of great benefit to us in many different ways.”

A new recreation complex that is expected to include a field house, ice arena and gymnasium with pickleball courts is being developed by South Suburban Parks and Recreation, and the recreation district wants the public to provide input on the new facility. The new center, which will be nearly 200,000 square feet, will be built just southwest of East County Line Road and South Holly Street. In addition to recreation amenities, the center will house the recreation district’s administrative offices. The complex will replace the 50-year-old South Suburban Ice Arena and South Suburban’s administrative offices near Arapahoe Road and University Boulevard in Centennial. Completion for the $50 million project is expected by December 2020. Perkins + Will is the architect leading the design team, and Adolfson and Peterson Construction is the construction manager/general contractor.

Two open house-style meetings will provide the public a chance to learn about the center and provide input on the proposed plans. The meetings are at Goodson Recreation Center, 6315 S. University Blvd., Centennial. The two meetings are Tuesday, Sept. 18, from 1-3 p.m., in Room 8; and Thursday, Sept. 20, from 6-8 p.m., in Room 5. Perkins + Will has worked on a number of sports, athletic, recreation and multi-purpose event centers, including Denver Broncos Football Club, Pat Bowlen Fieldhouse at UCHealth Training Facility and Red Rocks Amphitheatre and Visitor’s Center. Adolfson & Peterson Construction has built a wide range of recreational amenities and athletic facilities, including Colorado Mesa University’s Maverick Center, Gypsum Recreation Center, Stadium at Adams 12 School District, Parker Recreation Center Expansion and Westminster Recreation Center Aquatics Center addition & renovation.

T

he Cook Creek Pool is closed for the summer, but before the facility was drained, it went to the dogs. The 2018 Wag N’ Romp dogs-only swim opened Cook Creek’s gates for a canines of all shapes and sizes, dozens of them, with no shortage of things to fetch and chase in the water. “I’m pretty sure this is what heaven is like,” said Jamie Coleman of Lone Tree. She moved to Lone

Tree in March and this was her first time at the Wag N’ Romp. The retrievers and collies fetched tennis balls and Frisbees in the deep pool while the rest of the dogs splashed around in the kiddie pool nearby. Many of the smaller dogs, some donning custom life jackets, stayed at the water’s edge, barely dipping a paw before retreating to dry land. “Watching the dogs with their sensory overloads is interesting,” said Sean Graves. His chocolate Labrador, Rambo, came in second in the swimming competition. He and his family brought all five of the family dogs for the swim. “It’s really cool the community actually does this for everybody. It’s one thing everyone has in common — we love dogs.”

For one day, the Cook Creek Pool was open to dogs only before the pool was drained for the year. Dozens of dogs ran about and splashed around in the water Sept. 8. Dogs splash around at the Cook Creek Pool before the pool is drained for the summer. The Wag N’ Romp dogs-only swim allowed dogs to take a dip to close out the summer Sept. 8.

Walk for suicide prevention to be held at Coors Field BY ALEX DEWIND ADEWIND@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

CALM AFTER THE STORM

Highlands Ranch residents Sheri Cole and Lori Harper both lost a child to suicide. For the past year, they have been organizing the upcoming Metro Denver Out of the Darkness Community Walk, an annual fundraising event to bring hope and healing to others who have been affected by suicide. “It’s just nice to know you are not alone, because you feel so alone when it happens,” said Harper, who lost her daughter to suicide four years ago. More than 3,500 people are expected at this year’s walk at Coors Field in Denver on Sept. 22. Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. and the opening ceremony is at 10 a.m. To avoid long lines, participants can register online at afsp.donordrive. com until noon Sept. 21. Hosted by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, the fundraiser features a three-mile walk, mental health resources, silent auction, butter-

SM

fly-release ceremony and workshops. Special touches such as a poster covered with notes of hope and a memory tree with photos of the loved ones lost create a sense of comfort and connectedness. To date, $114,774 of a $275,000 goal has been raised. Donations will be accepted until Dec. 31. Funds go toward education, advocacy and research. ASFP partners with and provides resources for several organizations and programs, such as Mental Health First Aid, a training program that teaches the skills to respond to signs of mental illness and substance use, according to its website. “For any cause, more attention, dollars, resources, education and programs that we can bring to it will make an impact,” said Cole, who lost her son to suicide in 2009. The walk grows each year, bringing more people together to connect and find comfort. If you or someone you know is struggling, Colorado Crisis Service is available at 1-844-493-TALK.

Gym is open for those ready to climb walls Earth Treks indoor climbing facility offers variety of challenges BY TOM MUNDS TMUNDS@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

E

Earth Treks climbing instructor Jay Thurston plans his route up a bouldering wall. “I can’t tell you how much I love the rush of adrenaline when I make it to the top,” Thurston said. DAVID GILBERT

mily Camp smiled as she emerged from Earth Treks facility at 1050 W. Hampden Ave. in Englewood after spending a couple hours on the facility’s indoor climbing walls. “I am an avid climber and I have been a member of the Earth Treks climbing wall in Golden since 2014,” she said. “I like climbing because it helps keep me physically fit, which is important because I am a fitness instructor.” She said she liked the Englewood facility because the wall is taller than the one in Golden. “This is a beautiful facility,” she said. “They have a lot of choices for climbing which are challenging, and that is part of what makes climbing fun.” The Earth Treks in Englewood opened Aug. 31 and is touted as the nation’s largest indoor climbing facility. It is in the south building on what once was the Sports Authority campus, and is easily reached from Jason Street just north of Kenyon Avenue. Tori Barnett, marketing director, said the facility covers 53,000 square feet. She explained that the company raised a portion of the roof to create a vertical space 55 feet tall, and that with the overhanging terrain at the top of some walls, the facility offers climbing lengths of up to 65 feet “to challenge our climbers.” “Our facility offers 500 possible climbing routes,” Barnett said. “We

have routes for hand climbers as well as routes for those who prefer to use a belaying harness and rope.” She said the layout of the facility could accomodate up to about 400 climbers at a time. No climbers would be taking the same route, so the none of the walls or routes would be crowded. Climbers can buy day passes to use the facility or they can buy a membership that is valid at the Englewood and Golden facilities. Barnett said there is a special offer of a membership for $59, which is half price. The price will be available until Oct. 31. The facility also offers child care, which costs $7 an hour for non-members and $5 an hour for Earth Treks members. Earth Trek will also be home to a climbing team that competes against teams from other facilities. “We also will have a recreational climbing club that for the younger climbers from 8-year-olds to young men and women in high school,” Barnett said. “We will be holding tryouts in the fall for the teams.” The facility draws climbers of all ages. Sebastian Lang was climbing for the first time Aug. 31. His mother said he has always been a good climber, so they brought him to Earth Treks so he could try its facilities. After he completed about an hour of instruction and practice on the walls, the 7-year-old said climbing is a lot of fun. “This kind of climbing is new to me,” he said. “It was challenging. I liked being in harness but the hardest thing still was when I looked down. I knew that I was safe but it still was a little scary being that high off the ground. It was scary but still it was a lot of fun and I want to come back and climb the walls again.” Earth Treks climbing instructor Adam Avello makes his way up a bouldering route. “Climbing is about facing your fears,” Avello said. “It’s about pushing forward and focusing on your goal. It’s analagous to life.” DAVID GILBERT

Sebastian Lang looks down as he completes his ascent on one of the climbing routes on the walls of Earth Treks. The 7-year-old said the hardest part of his effort was when he looked down and realized how high he had climbed. But he was wearing a harness and had a person on the floor to keep him safe and allow him to belay his way down. TOM MUNDS

College gallery exhibition recounts journey to Japan Art students, faculty members took memorable trip abroad to study

I

n late spring, 48 Arapahoe Community College art students and faculty members flew to Japan for the 2018 Study Abroad excursion, landing in Osaka, then onto legendary Kyoto, where they began a journey that included color, sound, food and lots of contrast between old and new in every direction. The Bullet Train whizzed them to Tokyo and a bus took them on a day trip to nearby Kamakura, an ancient capital, with a famous huge Buddha. Participants had prepared with a spring quarter class about what they would discover — and for some, there was help with an effort to raise the necessary money to make the trip. All returned with a head filled with memories and images, with full sketchbooks and camera records — and a most satisfying experience with a different culture. A new exhibit is open through Oct. 3 in the Colorado Gallery of Art at ACC, called “Japan … a Journey of Art.” Third-year art student/traveler/ photographer Jenna Cardenas was on

Down-payment assistance helps teachers get foothold Program aims to ease disparity between pay, housing prices BY MELANIE ASMAR CHALKBEAT.ORG

Carissa Travis is an early bird. She’s usually at school by 6 a.m., two hours before her second-graders arrive, because she does her best work when the hallways of Denver’s Steele Elementary are quiet. She spends seven hours on her feet teaching and then sometimes several more after school in training sessions or PTA meetings. When she gets home from what can be a 12-hour day, Travis needs some space. It’s one reason the 29-year-old was eager to buy her own home. She also wanted to leave behind the revolving roommates and rising rent that caused her to move four times in five years. But she found her teacher’s salary didn’t go far in a gentrifying city where the median home price is now more than a half-million dollars. It’s a familiar problem that’s especially acute in Colorado, which a recent study ranked dead last among states for the competitiveness of its teacher salaries. The average Denver teacher earned $57,753 last year, according to the district. Just as Travis was ready to give up, she got an email about a novel program that helps teachers buy homes in the communities where they work. In June, she became the first Denver teacher to seal a deal through it when

she closed on a remodeled one-bedroom condo just a five-minute drive from her school. Hers was not the highest offer, but the previous owners liked her story. “They were excited to sell to a teacher,” Travis said. The program that helped her is called Landed. Using philanthropic dollars, it pays for part of an educator’s down payment with the understanding that the educator will pay that amount back, plus a percentage of the increase in the home’s value. The most common scenario is that the educator puts down 10 percent of the home price and Landed kicks in 10 percent to get to a down payment of 20 percent, said Paula Davis, a former teacher who helped bring the program to Colorado and is the company’s representative here. But the bar to qualify is lower: Educators have to put down just 5 percent and Landed will pick up the rest, up to $70,000 in Colorado. Donations fund program Landed pays for its portion with more than $15 million in donations from foundations including the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, funded by Facebook creator Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan; and the Zoma Foundation, funded by Walmart heir Ben Walton and his wife Lucy Ana.

Parker teen to compete in World Equestrian Games Haley Smith, a Legend graduate, will take part in pairs vaulting BY NICK PUCKETT NPUCKETT@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

When Haley Smith is finally done competing for the year, she’s going to eat some Flamin’ Hot Cheetos. It’s a fitting reward for months of intense weight training, scrupulously toning each muscle in form: Gymnastics classes twice a week to strengthen her core and sides; long, uphill runs for leg strength; dance classes in between everything else. And with all that, she still had to find time to sync up with her competition partner, Diva, the 15-year-old Oldenburg horse. Smith is a competitive vaulter, the equestrian event that is essentially a combination of dance and gymnastics components on horseback. Competitors, sometimes three at a time, commit a series of choreographed moves on the moving horse for a score determined by judges. The circus-like performance requires an incredible amount of strength and attention to detail. Smith, an 18-year-old graduate of Legend High School, competes at an elite level in the sport. She will compete in front of thousands, along with her pairs partner Daniel Janes, at the International Equestrian Federation (FEI) World Equestrian Games, beginning Sept. 11. “She got here from hard work,” said Smith’s coach, Carolyn Bland. “She goes and gets the job done no matter what, even if it’s a small mistake she finds a way to continue on her program.” In 2016 she competed in her first world senior competition in Le Mans, France. A junior at Legend, Smith traveled to California on the weekends to train with Pacific Coast Vaulters, one of the top vaulting

clubs in the nation. Sharing time between school and competition became difficult. With the help of her teachers at Legend, she was able to miss significant school time while keeping her grades up. In the 2016 Le Mans senior-division games, her first international competition, she finished 11th. Smith eventually made the full move out west in the middle of her senior year at Legend and completed online classes to get her diploma. “I’d say the biggest struggle with that was leaving my friends behind,” Smith said. “My high school friends and football games and homecoming — all that stuff. But I never regretted moving.” But even then, no amount of hard work guarantees success. Smith missed the qualifying cut for the 2017 junior world competition in Austria. After her disappointing run in 2017, Smith, as the saying goes, got right back on the horse — a new horse, Diva. “I knew that I was going to have to step up my game because this year a lot of vaulters are eager to go to the equestrian games, so I knew I had to build my strength training,” Smith said. “Just my overall I knew I had to be a lot better.” Now, Smith finds herself at the pinnacle of the sport. The FEI World Championships is the highest level of international competition for the sport. Leaders in the sport are pushing to get vaulting into the Olympics; however, for now, vaulting will have to remain on the fringes of obscurity. Smith is one of those leaders — albeit, a young one. Her dedication to the sport is transmitted to everyone she encounters, whether in competition or in training. She helps train younger riders and give back to the sport she

gave everything too. “Every sport needs to have those super motivated, passionate youth that are willing to do all that extra stuff beyond competing or themselves to help their sport grow,” said Emma Seely, of Pacific Coast Vaulting. “She’s really embraced the whole thing.” For Smith, the competition will be the toughest of her career. As the event draws closer, her nerves grew.

The World Equestrian Games only comes around once every four years. When she’s finished she can relax with a bag of spicy Cheetos. Until then, like the tireless months of training — missing prom, homecoming and everything in between her senior year — Smith is making every second count. “Every day,” she said, “we’re preparing as much as we possibly can.”

Middle-schoolers, despite the occasional crack that they are living proof of aliens among us, exhibit compassion, creativity, dedication and intellect, in both Aurora and Douglas County schools. Every day. In both districts, high-schoolers strive for knowledge, skills and habits that will launch them into society. They need all the help they can get balancing the pressures of home, peers and society. In both communities, most kids come from homes that are wellsprings of support. And students are distributed across every spectrum of physical, mental and emotional ability. There are differences. In Aurora, I often taught children whose parents served on the Air Force Base.

We are so caught up in making the “right” decision based on the input and feedback from others, and possibly even to be politically correct, that we have stopped thinking for ourselves. It is so much easier to let social media be the judge, or to allow Google to make an informed decision for us. Why should we be taxed with making such hard decisions when artificial intelligence can do it? Now, ask yourself, “Is he talking about artificial intelligence like the internet and technology?” Well, I could be. But I am not. I am talking about the artificial and made up intelligence of our sources of information and the input we receive from others, and especially from others who change their mind and basis of information on the very last thing that they were told or that they read.

Numbers tell different story Recently, Heidi Thomas made several blatantly misleading statements regarding another person’s letter to the editor. I’d like to address a couple of those. The first, “Forbes reports that the median annual household income in Douglas County is $99,198.” She then compares this to the statement, “$53,080 is a good salary…” from the previous letter writer. Obviously, her intent is to show how much a teacher is underpaid compared to their neighbors in DougCo. But is it true? Being a former public and private high school math teacher, I may look at numbers differently than many people might. Let’s analyze the two numbers presented: $53,080 is an “average” salary. The $99,198 is a “median.” A median is defined as: exactly 50 percent of households make more than that and exactly 50 percent of households make less than that. It is a true middle ground. Household income is defined as all the income coming in to that house. In most cases today, that will be a dual-income household. Based on those numbers, two “average” teachers in DougCo who are married to each other have an annual household income of $106,160. In other words, the average teacher in DougCo makes more income than over 50 percent of the people who live in Douglas County. Think about that. Life gets more interesting when you start to analyze numbers in their true light and get behind the details into what is being

No need for tax hike The DougCo School Board will ask taxpayers for both a $40 million mill levy override (MLO) and a $250 million bond issue, which means much higher taxes for DougCo residents. About $17 million of the $40 million MLO would be spent on higher teacher pay. But since teachers are part-time workers should we be paying them more than $53,080 (average salary according to Colorado Department of Education)? According to the 2018-19 Douglas County School District calendar, teachers will be teaching students 169 days plus 12 days of professional training (conferences, etc. without students) for a total of 181 working days. Thus, teachers actually work (assuming an eight-hour day and a two week vacation) only 72.4 percent of the hours of other workers — and they have full medical and generous retirement unlike most part-time employees. They take second jobs because they only work part-time in their teaching jobs. If teachers worked full time they would be making an average $73,314 a year. Money can be saved without hiking taxes. Public charter schools save the district and taxpayer huge construction costs because they must finance or lease their own school buildings. But though the district’s own survey found citizens want more STEM (science, tech, engineering and math) schools, the board has denied two out of two charter applications, one

Joy Overbeck Parker Stop anti-Christian bigotry The Colorado Civil Rights Division has again gone after Masterpiece Cakeshop owner Jack Phillips, a Christian. This time, they’re giving credence to a complaint by a person who has switched from male to female. That person is an attorney listed on the Colorado Supreme Courts Office of Regulation as Autumn Scardina, who asked Jack to create a special cake to commemorate the conversion from man to woman. Because of his deeply held religious beliefs, Jack refused just as he refused to bake a special cake for a gay couple back in 2012. When the CCRD went after him that time, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled

that CCRD had violated the U.S. Constitution’s Free Exercise clause by persecuting Jack for not baking a special cake. In both these instances, Jack offered these folks any pre-made cake in his shop, but they all refused. Now in desperation, the Alliance Defense Fund has filed suit on Jack’s behalf to stop the ongoing religious persecution of Jack and his family that help run the business. For more info on these complex legal issues, you can call ADF at 800835-5233. These things, of course, do not occur in a vacuum. The Wall Street Journal has reported on this, so the whole world knows of Colorado’s continued persecution of this humble baker who simply wants to use his God-given talents to make delicious and beautiful cakes. Lets pray the CCRD comes to its senses so our state won’t continue to be the center of such anti-Christian bigotry. Charles Newton Highlands Ranch

Great American Beer Festival is set to BREW UP good times

More than 800 breweries from across nation will take part in Denver event BY ALEX DEWIND ADEWIND@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

n 1993, after geologists Charlie and Janine Sturdavant lost their jobs, they purchased a Victorianstyle home in Golden’s historic district. They filled a machine shop behind the house with old dairy tanks. They transformed the sunroom into a tasting room. The back yard became an intimate beer garden, with picnic tables and bulb lights draped overhead. More than 30 years later, Golden City Brewery is the city’s second largest brewery. “Nothing was planned out — it happened organically,” said Derek Sturdavant, the son of the original owners. After he graduated from college, he took on the role of head brewer, or as his bio says, “mad scientist.” Golden City Brewery, 920 12th St., is one of more than 800 breweries from across the U.S. that will be participating in this year’s Great American Beer Festival in downtown Denver. Sturdavant will be pouring favorites like the Cherry Bomber, which takes a half-pound of cherries per pint, and the Clear Creek Gold Pale Ale, a German-style beer. The three-day beer extravaganza is from Sept. 20-22 at the Colorado Convention Center, 700 14th St. in

A culinary exploration of Denver’s history

ot everyone can say they achieved a dream they had while in high school. But local wine expert and blogger Simone FM Spinner did just that with the publication of her first book — “Denver Food: A Culinary Evolution.” “Becoming a published book author has been a goal since I was fifteen years old and I finally did it,” she said. “I love food, cooking, and dining out. Working in the wine industry, I have always been lucky to dine out frequently as a part of my work; often in the latest, hottest, most interesting restaurants in the city.” In her book, Simone explores how German, Japanese, Chinese and Italian immigrants made their way to Colorado as part of COMING the gold rush. Soon ATTRACTIONS they were opening up saloons, which later turned into a booming restaurant industry. However, all the recent growth in metro area is causing some of the city’s most unique and historic locaClarke Reader tions to shut down. Which partly inspired Simone to start writing. “My book is essentially a love letter to the city that I fell in love with, which doesn’t really exist anymore,” she explained. “Yet, it is also a glimpse of the future and of the amazing things that are happening right now in Denver.” There’s a lot to know about the culinary scene in Denver, and Simone hopes readers come away understanding there’s a lot of collaboration and community between chefs. She also wants readers to know the Denver culinary community is actively doing their part to stave off waste, food insecurity and hunger, in their restaurants and in their communities. Most importantly, Simone wants readers to understand how many great tastes and flavors there are to explore right at their fingertips. “Denver has long been ignored by food writers, influencers, and critics. People assume that Denver is just about steaks, Mexican food, and novelty dishes. Denver’s culinary scene is a bit of a sleeper,” she said. “There is so much truly great food in this city and people should get out and explore a little bit. I really appreciate the immense culinary diversity in Denver.” SEE READER, P17

The AHA is a division of the Brewers Association, a national nonprofit dedicated to craft brewers. The largest of its kind in the country, the Great American Beer Festival is an opportunity for beer lovers to rejoice in all things beer, from tastings to food pairings to educational sessions with master brewers. This year, more than 8,000 styles of beer will be served. More than 62,000 attendees are expected over the three days. “It’s like a big ol’ music fest but everyone is a craft beer fan,” Sturdavant said. Brewers get creative and showcase new recipes to beer drinkers and to each other. “I always love the fest because there is so much great beer from all over the country,” said Jeff Tyler, head brewer at Spice Trade Brewery, formerly Yak & Yeti Brewpub, in Olde Town Arvada. “You really get to explore and try some things that you wouldn’t be able to try unless you were hopping on an airplane every weekend and going to different places around the

He brews his eclectic beers in a sevenbarrel brewhouse located inside the Yak & Yeti Restaurant, 7803 Ralston Road. The Indian, Nepalese, and Tibetan food restaurant is in a 153-yearold historic home. “A lot of the beer we do has an interesting culinary influence to it,” said Tyler. Some of his styles are a jalapeno-infused beer, chai milk stout and lemon cello suasion. He describes his favorite, the Jalapeno Lena, as a crisp, clean, effervescent, slightly bitter German-style

Megan Koloskie, manager of Grist Brewing Company in Highlands Ranch, 9150 Commerce Center Circle, said there’s a strong camaraderie among brewers at the festival.

She discovered her love for craft beer when she

And that it is exactly why we need to start exercising our own decision-making muscles again. When we want to build up our physical strength and endurance we do not send our neighbor to the gym. When we need to go to the doctor’s office we do not send our cousin to have the X-ray taken for us or have our brother go for the blood test. The answer is no. There are certain things that we have to do, that we are required to do, and that we get rewarded for doing. Decision making is one of those things. Not just the easy ones that we prefer to make, but the difficult decisions that we agonize over as well. What I have learned when it comes

(Be careful what you wish for.)

to decision making is that a “less is more” approach is the best approach. Seeking wise counsel, having strong advisers, and receiving rock-solid data to support a difficult decision is absolutely encouraged. It is when we seek too much information, when we try and justify the easy way out because we know someone will give us an opinion that will let us off the hook, and when we spend countless hours and days searching the internet just to make sure we didn’t miss that opinion piece from 2005 that will help us make the “right” decision, that is when we become decisively undecisive. Look, if you are like me and really prefer the easy decisions, but from time to time have to make a really tough call, do yourself a favor and limit the sources of information and people that will influence that decision.

So how about you? How are your decision-making muscles these days? Are you relying more on others and becoming increasingly undecided? I would love to hear your strategy for making up your mind at gotonorton@gmail.com and when we can avoid being decisively undecisive, it really will be a better than good week.

Arvada West AD follows winning path to Hall of Fame

STUDENT-ATHLETE STUDENT ATHLETE SPOTLIGHT

This back comes up big

Football player Spencer Lambert is a senior at ThunderRidge High School BY JIM BENTON JBENTON@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

S

pencer Lambert is a small player but he’s had a big impact on the ThunderRidge football program. The 5-foot-9, 180-pound senior running back was a team captain last season and again this year. He led the Grizzlies with 1,265 rushing yards in 2017 and caught 31 passes for another 325 yards. So far this season, he’s also been a prominent player. “I’ve been playing tackle football since I was 6 years old,” said Lambert, who has a 4.1 GPA. “I’ve always been small. I’m just trying

to work as hard as I can. I’ve improved my strength... My quickness and speed have helped a great deal and definitely on the goal line plowing through.” Lambert, who hit .302 for the ThunderRidge baseball team last spring, at times runs the football like he is a 225-pound running back but still has enough speed to break long gainers. His yards after contact were a big reason he was named to the 2017 Colorado Community Media All-South Metro football team. He often turns what could have been a 2-yard loss into a 3-yard gain. “I love scoring touchdowns and running kids over,” said Lambert.

COACH’S TAKE: ‘Spencer is an unbelievable leader... He is the kind of kid that does everything you need him to do in preparation as a player, student and person. He’s been a key part of helping us build the culture that is so important to being successful.’ Doug Nisenson, ThunderRidge football coach

Q&A with Lambert What’s your favorite pre-game meal? Before games I usually eat spaghetti and meatballs for the carbs. Who is your favorite athlete? I’d have to go with Barry Sanders just because of the way he moved. What music do you listen to before a game and why? Mostly just Drake and Kanye just to get me pumped up. What or who motivates you most to excel in sports? I think just playing for my community and trying to take this school back to what it used to be and back to the powerhouse it used to be.

What is your favorite class in school and why? I like math. I’m good at it and it’s pretty concrete and it’s easy to figure out the formulas. What do you like to do away from sports and school? I like to go fishing and hiking. What would be a perfect performance for you in your sport? For me I would say 250 yards, two touchdowns and definitely a win What are your plans after high school? I want to play college football, get an education in engineering.

Have a suggestion for whom to feature in Student-Athlete Spotlight? Email Jim Benton at jbenton@coloradocommunitymedia.com

Key stats | In his first two games this season, Lambert rushed for 253 yards on 28 carries for an average of 9 yards per rush. He scored five touchdowns.

rvada West athletic director Casey Coons is a Hall of Famer. It is an honor that I envisaged since he was well-schooled. Coons is a fellow graduate of Denver’s Abraham Lincoln High School. Coons, who graduated from high school years after I did, will be part of the 24th Western State OVERTIME Colorado University Hall of Fame class that will be inducted on Sept. 14 in Gunnison. He was an offensive lineman for Western State and a 1980 graduate who played Jim Benton on three Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference title teams and twice played in NAIA post-season playoff games. After coaching at Black Hills State University and Western Oregon, Coons returned to Western State in 1988 as an assistant for head coach Duke Iverson. He was promoted to assistant head coach and defensive coordinator in 1991. In three seasons starting with the 1991 campaign, the Mountaineers won three conference titles, advanced to the NAIA playoffs once and made two NCAA playoff appearances. “I think I’m the first assistant coach to go into the Hall of Fame at Western State,” said Coons, who was Arvada West’s head football coach from 2002 to 2011. “We thought we were going to get fired in 1991 unless we turned it around. It wasn’t just me. So much went into it. It’s a we thing, especially in football.” Brent Tollar was one person who sent in a nomination letter. “Coach Coons created a wellbonded defense and team mentality that focused on hard work, grit and an unbreakable ideal that we always stood together as a team,” wrote Tollar. “The only thing that mattered was the name on the front of the jersey. The very foundation that I believe Mountaineer football stands for comes from someone like Casey Coons.” Match point Granted, it wasn’t the U.S. Open tennis championships. SEE BENTON, P22

Wag ’n Trail to help homeless pets STAFF REPORT

Dogs, hiking and craft beer are all quintessentially Colorado, and the Dumb Friends League Wag ’n Trail event combines all three to help homeless pets at its Buddy Center location in Castle Rock. The dog-friendly hike takes place from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday, Sept. 22 at Glendale Farm Open Space in Douglas County. In addition to a 1.6-mile hike, the event features a beer garden, silent auction, pet-related vendors, food trucks, music, adoptable dogs and access to a five-acre off-leash dog park. Registration is $50 and includes a downloadable event photo of you and

BENTON FROM PAGE 20

It was the 13th annual Willow Creek Classic doubles tournament that took place Sept. 5-9 at courts in the Willow Creek neighborhood in Centennial and other nearby South Suburban courts. Tennis players from the south Denver area apparently like to wrap up the summer tennis season with competitive, tough matches that are fun and without a lot of pressure. Plus there was always food and drinks waiting at the conclusion of matches in the quaint, unsanctioned tournament in which players have to register by mail. This year there were 225 players entered to play in women’s 3.o, 3.5 and 4.0 doubles and men’s 3.5, 4.0 doubles. There was competition in 6.5, 7.0, 7.5 and 8.0 mixed doubles. The tourney concluded with a unique, eight-game pro set mixed doubles event. “The tournament does attract good tennis players who feel welcome and are not intimidated,” said tournament organizer Rick Bolin. “What sets the tournament apart from other tourna-

your dog, a photo frame, a bag of dog treats, craft beer or root beer, and ice cream for both you and your pup. Those who contribute an additional $25 will receive a Wag ‘n Trail event T-shirt and dog bandana. Children ages 12 and younger can participate for free with paid adult registration. Virtual hikers also can participate. Registration is $25 and includes a dog bandana. Virtual hikers dedicate a hike any time before Oct. 22. They also can enter the virtual hiker photo contest by submitting a picture from their hike for a chance to win a doggie gift basket and $100 gift card from PetSmart. To register for Wag ’n Trail or as a virtual hiker, go to wagntrail.org.

ments is that people love how social it is, how friendly it is and we as organizers go out of our way to make sure there is food and drinks available. The fridge is fully stocked. “We attract great tennis players from all over the south metro area from Highlands Ranch, Ken Caryl, Parker, the Pinery, and last year we had four women who came down from Aspen. We allowed as many people to register as we could find courts and then we had to stop.” Willow Creek resident Jamele Leyden has played in the tournament since it started. “Even if you are not playing there is someone that I know that is on the court,” she said. “It’s a great tournament to relax. It is well run. Everyone is playing to win but it’s such a relaxed environment and at some point you are going to be playing against people you know. Because it’s non-sanctioned there is no pressure. It’s fun.” Jim Benton is a sports writer for Colorado Community Media. He has been covering sports in the Denver area since 1968.
