More than a 150 Mines students accompanied Blaster this year, wearing event shirts. On their shirts were the words, “We have the endurance to go all the way.” “This weekend is just a celebration of all the hard work that all of our students do, giving them something to look forward to, some balance,” Student Activities Office Associate Director Kelli Bell said, calling last weekend the most successful E-Days in recent memory. Bell said much of the weekend’s many
activities are student organized. Several of the special events reflected the student body’s engineering bent. There was the Tesla Coil demonstration on Friday, cardboard boat Clear Creek races Saturday, followed by a trebuchet (catapult) launch. “They really worked hard and really believe in providing this for their fellow peers,” Bell said. Competing in the boat race was the dynamic duo of Gabriel Alvarado and Carlos Tasayto, both juniors. They had the bad luck of their boat disintegrate within sight E-Days continues on Page 22

of transportation improvement projects discussed at the April 2 meeting of the Jefferson County’s Board of County Commissioners meeting. Transportation and Engineering Director Kevin French went through the 2013 list with the commissioners April 2. First on the list was ongoing work to improve traffic capacity and flow along South Golden Road, including a roundabout at the Lena Gulch intersection, and roadway improvements between Quaker and Moss streets. The rest of the roadway improvements are complicated by the narrowness of the
available roadway, with any extra roadway requiring the shifting of power poles and parking lots, French said. “On both sides of the road, you’ll see more space for pedestrians,” French said. District 1 Commissioner Faye Griffin asked if the nearby NREL facility had followed through on a verbal offer to help pay for improvements along Moss Street. French said the federal laboratory had not yet replied to the request. French said the South Golden corridor required the special attention because trafProjects continues on Page 22
Plans to tear down the Golden Bowl and build a Natural Grocers store in its place passed the first of the two hurdles the city’s planning process requires. At the April 1 meeting of the Golden City Historic Preservation Board (HCB), the seven-member group voted 5 to 1, with one absence to approve the demolition of the buildings at 525 24th and 2401 Ford streets, currently the Golden Bowl and Pedal Pushers bike shop. Under city ordinance, any non-resident building at least 50 years of age requires a Certificate of Appropriateness from the HCB before it can be demolished. HCB board member Laura McCall suggested the group delay a decision on the demolition for a month or more. “I think it would give people time to think about this, and perhaps for another buyer to step forward,” McCall said. The other board members disagreed that more time would necessarily be helpful, and voted to approve the demolition. The project developers from Equity Ventures, representing Natural Grocers, warned that a 180-day delay would be onerous enough to potentially kill the project. “I know that the bowling alley is of a lot of benefit for a lot of people, but I think that Vitamin Cottage (Natural Grocers parent company) is exactly the kind of business we want in Golden.” HCB member Dixie Termin said before making the motion. Both buildings were constructed in the 1950s. The buildings do not have any special historic designation, though they are adjacent to an existing historic district. The nearby 5th Ring Coffee Shop will remain. The Natural Grocers’ plans showed a 15,000-square-foot neighborhood market. smaller in square footage than the current bowling alley. The space where Pedal Pushers is now would become a parking lot, and is considered unbuildable due to being inside the FEMA 100-year-flood map zone. “We hope this will be a nice revitalization of what we call one of the gateway areas of Golden,” Equity Ventures spokesman Craig Lofton said, adding that the proposed grocery store design would aim to meet all the requirements of the city’s Central Neighborhoods Plan. Several members of the public that spoke at the meeting were against approval of the demolition, based more on the cultural value of the businesses, than the structures themselves. “It’s not necessarily that people don’t want a Natural Grocers in Golden, but that it’s displacing three businesses to do it,” Mike Keily, the current operator of the bowling alley said. The Natural Grocers proposal can now present a site plan to the Planning Commission for approval, which could happen as early as June, according to the applicants. If approved there, demolition could occur as early as this fall. Construction is estimated to take seven to eight months Lofton said.

Bronco stands tall for children You don’t want to be a running back, or a slot receiver who has the audacity to enter the area of the gridiron that Denver Broncos linebacker Wesley Woodyard patrols. But if you’re a kid who lacks Peyton Manning-like protection from life’s hard knocks, don’t worry. Wesley’s got your back. Woodyard paid a visit to the state Capitol last week to show his support for a legislative resolution that designates April as Child Abuse Awareness Month. The resolution, which was adopted by the General Assembly, calls upon “all citizens to educate themselves on how they can be the one to make a difference in the life of a child, and prevent child abuse and neglect.” Woodyard is no stranger to causes involving children. He often advocates on behalf of CASA — Court Appointed Special Advocates for children — and for his own charity, 16 Ways, which benefits kids from underprivileged backgrounds. “To me, it’s important to step up and be a part of the community,” Woodyard said in a recent interview with Colorado Community Media. “It only takes one person to make a difference in a child’s life. And when you’ve been given the platform that I’ve been given, it’s important to take advantage of it.” State Sen. Linda Newell, D-Littleton, a sponsor of the resolution, is involved in many child welfare-related issues at the
Legislature. She said that awareness of these types of causes is heightened whenever community members of Woodyard’s stature are involved. “Sometimes it’s the celebrity or somebody who can draw the attention of the community,” Newell said. “And he has been a great addition to the child abuse prevention community because he’s drawing in people who are sometimes not necessarily involved.” About the only thing that rivals Woodyard’s impact in the community is his play on the field — especially on the heels of his performance last season. Woodyard, 26, a Broncos team captain, had a breakout season at weak-side linebacker. He had career numbers in categories that included tackles, sacks and interceptions. But then there’s the way the season ended. As a lifelong Broncos fan, I can honestly say that I still haven’t gotten over January’s playoff loss to the Baltimore Ravens. I remember collapsing on my couch after the
game, like my heart had just been ripped out of my chest, straight out of some Aztec sacrifice ritual. Seriously, my voicemail and textmessage inbox was flooded that night with messages from concerned friends who were making sure that I hadn’t taken a leap from the top of downtown’s Republic Plaza. So, yes, it was a painful loss, to say the least — and that goes for the players, too. “It’s one of those things that I don’t think you get over,” Woodyard said. “But it motivates me. It motivates my teammates.” If the Broncos are going to advance further in the playoffs this season, they’re gonna have to do it without a key member of their defense. Pass rusher Elvis Dumervil, a fan favorite in the Mile City High since 2006, will be in a Ravens uniform this season, following a bizarre episode from last month that involved a signed, $8 million contract not being sent to the NFL in time for the league’s deadline. OK, so “bizarre” doesn’t do the incident justice. I mean, who transmits a document literally worth millions of dollars via a piece of machinery that gets less use out of it than a Donkey Kong Atari video game? What, carrier pigeons weren’t available? But, I digress. “I’m gonna miss Doom,” Woodyard said of Dumervil. “Doom was a role model to me. He taught me to be a man on and off the field. His leadership and play will be missed. “I talked to him the other day and I told
him that I hope he breaks the sack record in Baltimore, but not against us.” But there are plenty of things for Broncos fans to be excited about this season. Among them will be having another guy named Wes to cheer for on game days. “Oh, we’re very excited,” Woodyard said of the addition of Wes Welker to the Broncos receiving corps. “He’s an extreme competitor and we’re so happy to have him on board.” Not only is it gonna be nice to have the former New England Patriots standout on our team, Broncos players are just as thrilled about not having to defend against him. “Absolutely,” Woodyard said, laughing. “I know (Broncos cornerback) Chris Harris is excited about that. Those guys had some battles.” Woodyard recognizes that he and the Broncos did a lot of good on the field last season. But don’t think for a second that he doesn’t want to accomplish bigger and better things. “When you think you’ve arrived, that’s when you hit bottom,” he said. “It was a good season, but I could have done so much more. I’m grateful to have the opportunity to be where I am, but I’m looking forward to this season.” Vic Vela is the legislative reporter for Colorado Community Media.

Crossing paths with Sylvia Plath Resident recalls college experience in new biography By Glenn Wallace
firstname.lastname@example.org At least three biographies of Sylvia Plath are being released this year, 50 years after her death. While many might think that there must be nothing new to say on the subject of the poet’s life, biographer Carly Rollyson disagrees. As a result, one of the new Plath biographies appearing on bookstore shelves and websites right now is Rollyson’s entry into the field, American Isis. “What I wanted to show is that Sylvia Plath is really unique in her generation, part of that transition period in the 1950’s, prefeminism,” Rollyson said. He does that in part by comparing Plath with one of her contemporaries, Marylin Monroe. The original blonde bombshell was the subject of a previous Rollyson biography. His argument centers around the belief that both women were striving for the things
The new Sylvia Plath biography, pictured here at the Denver West Barnes and Noble book signing, features cover art by Golden resident Judy Denison, who attended Smith College with Plath. Photo by Glenn Wallace they wanted, struggling to fulfill and transcend the female roles society set for them. “They’re almost like reverse images of each other,” Rollyson said.
Another motivation for Rollyson’s new biography is that, in his words, “there’s always new material.”
Measure would extend work program Plan allows partial benefits for employees with reduced hours By Vic Vela
email@example.com State lawmakers have voted to renew a rarely used program that gives struggling businesses an alternative to laying off employees. Senate Bill 157, which has passed both chambers of the Democraticcontrolled General Assembly Report on party-line votes, would extend the Colorado Work Share Program indefinitely. The program gives businesses the opportunity to keep their workers at reduced hours, rather than laying them off altogether. Under the program, which businesses can enter into on a voluntary basis, employees receive prorated unemployment benefits to compensate for the loss of hours. Workers can receive up to 26 weeks of
prorated unemployment benefits through Colorado Work Share, under recent federal changes made to the program. The program receives federal money for reimbursement, rather than adversely affecting the state’s Unemployment Insurance Fund. Rep. Tracy Kraft-Tharp, D-Arvada, a House sponsor of the bill, said the program allows businesses that are going through a “temporary tough time” to keep skilled workers, instead of losing them. Kraft-Tharp said in a recent interview that the program helps companies like Vestas Wind Systems, which has reduced employees’ hours at their Brighton, Pueblo and Windsor wind-power factories. “This is a pretty specialized field,” she said. “We don’t want to lose those people, or have them move away.” The Work Share program, which was put in place in 2010, and is administered under the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment, had to be taken up again by the General Assembly because it is scheduled to sunset in July. The bill keeps the program going, while making adjustments to keep it in line with federal guidelines. Kraft-Tharp acknowledges that the program isn’t well-known, and that only a handful of Colorado businesses are tak-
ing advantage of it. But she expects that to change soon. “There was no money for Department of Labor staff time when it passed in 2010, so the state has not been able to promote this,” she said. “But, with the new changes, we can access federal grants, so we can allocate staff time to support it.” Republicans are opposed to the continuation of the program. The bill passed the Senate without any GOP support in March, and again in the House on April 2. Rep. Brian DelGrosso, R-Loveland, said during a recent debate on the House floor that businesses that pay into the state’s unemployment insurance trust fund could essentially end up paying the wages for competitors’ workers, even though the workers are still employed there. “So, potentially you can have a competitor down the street paying for the employees of a fellow competitor somewhere else in town,” DelGrosso said. But Kraft-Tharp sees value in the program. “The bottom line is, if you’re going to be laid off … and if we can help you, we’re going to help you,” she said. “It’s about keeping people employed and keeping their paychecks coming home.”
In Rollyson’s case, the new material includes some newly revealed writings from Plath’s husband Ted Hughes, as well as new interviews of some of Plath’s classmates from her time at Smith College. Back in 1953, Golden’s own Judy Denison happened to be right across the hallway from Plath. “I had noticed Sylvia’s poems in ‘Seventeen’ — they were so good that I actually remembered her name,” Denison said, admitting to some hero worship. On an April day in 1954 Denison snapped a picture of Plath in a tree outside their campus house, “dressed in the standard Smith outfit.” That photo now graces the cover of Rollyson’s dust jacket. Denison said it is surreal that a photo she took so long ago is suddenly on bookshelves on both sides of the Atlantic. Paparazzi photos of Academy Award-winning actress Anne Hathaway shopping at a bookstore and holding American Isis recently made the papers. To help promote the book, Denison also helped host Rollyson, while he was in Denver for his book tour. The money from the photo rights though, were all donated to Smith College, Denison said.

Aircraft firms’ tax credit gets support Bill aims to boost employment in state By Vic Vela
firstname.lastname@example.org A bill that would expand tax incentives for the purpose of new hires in the state’s aviation field is flying through the Legislature with bipartisan support. House Bill 1080 modifies the 2005 Aircraft Manufacturer New Employee Tax Credit, which provides a one-time $1,200 tax credit for a new employee hired by an aircraft manufacturer. The bill expands the available tax incentives to manufacturers that provide aircraft maintenance, repair and modification services, which were not included in the bill from eight years ago.
Rep. Chris Holbert, R-Parker, a bill sponsor, said it’s important to extend the existing earned tax credits in an effort to attract high-paying jobs in a growing field, rather than having planes fly to other states just for the purposes of having repairs done. “ We Report have to recognize that big carriers like United or Frontier, when they need to maintain an airplane, very often they’ll fly it to Wisconsin or Chicago to do the work there, and then bring it back,” he said. “I think it’s ridiculous that Colorado is losing out on those job opportunities.” Holbert said he was approached

Tracy Kraft-Tharp, D-Arvada about the idea for the bill by representatives from Centennial Airport. Airport Executive Director Robert Olislagers said Colorado is in a tough competition with other states for tax incentives for aviation jobs. “Twelve hundred dollars in tax credits doesn’t sound like a whole lot,” he said. “But, if you add that in with other incentives that Colorado counties are providing, it starts to add up.” Olislagers also said he hopes

Obama promotes gun control in visit President praises state legislators for new laws
‘I feel really good about what we did here in the state of
By Vic Vela
firstname.lastname@example.org President Barack Obama lauded recent gun-control measures signed into state law and touted Colorado as “a model of what’s possible” at the national level during a speech April 3 in Denver. The president’s remarks at the Denver Police Academy highlighted gun laws that soon will go into effect in the state, including those that institute universal background checks on gun sales and place limits on high-capacity ammunition magazines. Citing recent events in Aurora and Connecticut, Obama said it’s time for Congress to take up similar gun measures at the national level. “Every day that we wait to do something about it, even more of our fellow citizens are stolen from our lives by a bullet from a gun,” Obama said. In Colorado, gun-control bills have dominated headlines this legislative session. So far, Gov. John Hickenlooper has signed three bills passed by the Democratic-controlled General Assembly. Some Republicans say the gun measures are nothing but “feelgood” efforts that only hinder lawabiding citizens’ ability to obtain guns, while doing nothing to get the weapons out of the hands of criminals. Obama’s visit was met with some protests outside the police academy. And, earlier in the day, several Colorado sheriffs held a press

But Obama sees value in passing gun measures. He said Congress needs to address the loopholes in the current national background-check system for gun purchases, as Colorado legislators have done with recent legislation here. Obama said that if a person wants to buy a gun, “you should at least have to go through a background check to show that you’re not a criminal, or someone legally prohibited from buying one.” The president cited statis-
jeffco briefs Assault suspect arrested
Two days after an attempted sexual assault of a teenage girl in south Jeffco, Sheriff’s deputies arrested Xavier Sebastian McDaniel, 20. The assault took place April 4, in an apartment near South Simms Street and West Bowles Avenue. The victim suffered injuries, but was able to fight off the suspect, and described the suspect’s vehicle. Investigators located the car in the apartment complex. McDaniel is a resident of that complex. Investigators found McDaniel at his place of employment in Douglas County, where they placed him under arrest. McDaniel is being on $1 million bond, on suspicion of first-degree burglary and attempted sexual assault causing serious bodily injury.
DA to review Grand County shooting
Law enforcement officers are investigating a fatal shooting that occurred in Hot Sulphur Springs. Shortly before midnight on April 1, a woman called 911 call to report a stranger at her front door behaving erratically and causing a disturbance. The man allegedly tried to force his way into the home and a struggle ensued, resulting in the man’s shooting. The woman who placed the 911 call was a deputy district attorney in the Fourteenth Judicial District. Her husband is a Grand County Sheriff’s deputy. Both the deputy DA and the Sheriff’s deputy have been put on administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation. Because the incident involves a deputy DA and a sheriff’s deputy from Grand County, Fourteenth Judicial District Attorney Brett Barkey has requested assistance from the Colorado Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and the First Judicial District Attorney’s Office. The CBI is leading the investigation. The Critical Incident Team for Moffat, Grand and Routt counties is assisting in the investigation.
On Saturday, April 6, the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call in reference to a man who had fallen while climbing in an area off of Highway 6 near tunnel one. The Golden Fire Department, Foothills Fire Department and Genesee Fire Department responded along with Jeffco deputies. The man, who had been climbing with other family members, fell at least 40 feet. He was transported to St. Anthony Central where he was pronounced dead. Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the circumstances that caused the man’s fall.
tics that indicate background checks often do keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people. “So, this does work,” he said. “And, by the way, if you’re selling a gun, wouldn’t you want to know who you’re selling it to? Wouldn’t you want in your conscience to know that the person you’re selling to isn’t going to commit a crime?” Obama also said high-capacity ammunition magazines have no place in our communities. “I don’t believe that weapons designed for theaters of war have
a place in movie theaters,” he said to applause. “Most Americans agree with that.” The president acknowledged the polarizing nature that surrounds the gun-control debate. He said Colorado is a state where hunting is a tradition, and where guns are “handed down from generation to generation.” “And they treat gun ownership with reverence and respect,” he said. At the same time, Obama said it’s important for people to understand where the other side is coming from on these issues.
“There doesn’t have to be a conflict between protecting our citizens and protecting our Second Amendment rights,” the president said. Among those who attended the speech were Hickenlooper and U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder. The two took part in a round-table discussion on gun issues that involved Obama, prior to the president’s speech. Others taking part in the discussion were police and Colorado citizens whose lives have been affected by gun violence. Several state legislators also were attendance, including Rep. Rhonda Fields, D-Aurora. Fields — whose son was shot to death in 2005 and who sponsored some of the state’s gun legislation — said she felt that her work has been validated by Obama’s trip. “I feel really good about what we did here in the state of Colorado,” Fields told reporters. “And I think the rest of the nation should follow suit.”

Backpacks lift hunger’s burden
Jefferson County — According to industry experts, there are over 33 physical problems that will come under scrutiny during a home inspection when your home is for sale. A new report has been prepared which identifies the eleven most common of these problems, and what you should know about them before you list your home for sale. Whether you own an old home or a brand new one, there are a number of things that can fall short of requirements during a home inspection. If not identified and dealt with, any of these 11 items could cost you dearly in terms of repair. That’s why it’s critical that you read this report before you list your home. If you wait until the building inspector flags these issues for you, you will almost certainly experience costly delays in the close of your home sale or, worse, turn
prospective buyers away altogether. In most cases, you can make a reasonable pre-inspection yourself if you know what you’re looking for, and knowing what you’re looking for can help you prevent little problems from growing into costly and unmanageable ones. To help homesellers deal with this issue before their homes are listed, a free report entitled “11 Things You Need to Know to Pass Your Home Inspection” has been compiled which explains the issues involved. To hear a brief recorded message about how to order your FREE copy of this report, call toll-free 1-800-508-7293 and enter 1003. You can call any time, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Get your free special report NOW to learn how to ensure a home inspection doesn’t cost you the sale of your home.

Golden Backpack Program feeds hundreds every week

firstname.lastname@example.org It seemed unlikely to Peggy Halderman that there could be many children in the greater Golden area who did not have adequate access to food at home. But then she looked at the figures. “I pulled down the statistics and saw that there were more than 900 children in the Golden articulation area who are in free and reduced lunch at school,” the retired Halderman said. From talking with existing food assistance programs, like the one in Arvada, Halderman knew that the accepted formula for determining the children without proper food access over the weekends, would be half of the free and reduced lunch number — 450 hungry Golden children. “I was shocked, outraged. I took those figures to (Golden) Rotary, and I took them to (Golden City Council),” Halderman said. Five years later, with the help of the city, Golden Rotary, the Golden Family of Churches Health Ministry, and a small army of volunteers, the Golden Backpack Program provides weekend food for more than 500 area students each week. The program’s demand peaked last year at 606 students asking for assistance. For $4 per child the program provides a bag of groceries, providing two breakfasts, two lunches, a family-sized can of vegetables, two pieces of fresh fruit and some snacks.

Community volunteer Satyen Ameria (left) and Pleasant View Elementary Parent-Outreach Coordinator Susan Demboski help unload a Golden Backpack Program food deliveryt ruck. A key part of the program’s success comes from its partnership with the Developmental Disabilities Resource Center. The Lakewood-based organization provides job training and employment opportunities for those with developmental disabilities. The group provides food pick-up, warehousing, packaging, and delivery for the program. Halderman calls the partnership a “twofer,” keeping the program’s costs low, while also providing paychecks for the resource center’s adults. “No matter what the program needed, the people and organizations here say that it is not OK that a child goes hungry in this community,” Halderman said. “For us, it’s amazing,” said Janace Fischer, Pleasant View Elementary School’s principal. Fisher said in her classrooms, where the greatest percentage of the program’s bags go, her teachers have reported better attention and less behavior problems since the program began. On April 5, the White House recognized Halderman, honoring her as one of only 16 Rotary members from around the country to be named as Champions of Change, as part of National Rotary Day. Back in Golden, the program’s volunteers expressed pride in seeing the programs director recognized. In an email to her fellow Golden Backpack Program volunteers, Halderman wrote, “You all are such an important part of the Golden Backpack Team ... this one’s for you all as well!”

Colorado becomes battleground state By Glenn Wallace
ike it or not, Colorado is now undoubtedly a battleground state in the war of national politics. Statisticians like the New York Times’ Nate Silver have even identified Colorado as “the tipping point,” with its modest nine electoral votes proving to be crucial votes for Barack Obama to ensure victories in both 2008 and 2012. “Colorado has gone from being a relatively safe Republican state to a very important battleground state,” said Brendan Doherty, a political science researcher at the U.S. Naval Academy. Doherty has tracked and analyzed presidential travel patterns since the Carter administration, and said his research clearly indicates that presidents and their opponents recognize Colorado’s pivotal importance as well.
sources in Colorado, particularly in Jefferson County where he held three separate rallies, including a sell-out event at Red Rocks Amphitheater. According to the National Journal, more than $48 million was spent on Colorado media spots by the Democrat and Republican candidates and their national parties between May and November 2012.
This Week: National politics
The data unsurprisingly shows competitive states with more electoral votes get the most attention. Proximity to Washington, D.C., also seems to result in more visits, easier to make a morning appearance and still be back in the White House for afternoon briefings. The state travel list shifts over time though. From January 2012 to Election Day, Colorado was Obama’s fourth most visited state, since he spent 15 days here, trailing only Ohio (23 days), Virginia (23 days) and Florida (18 days). Republican presidential candidate Gov. Mitt Romney also spent considerable time and re-
The amount of time and resources spent in the state reflects a belief that is shared by both of the nation’s major political parties: Colorado is winnable. Before 1992, the state had voted for the Republican candidate in every presidential race, going all the way back to Lyndon Johnson. But within the last six presidential elections the state has voted three times for the Republican candidate, and three times for the Democrat. The swing in voting margin is pronounced: George W. Bush beat Al Gore by nine points, but
just eight years later Obama won by the same margin over John McCain. “Colorado has always been a very independent-minded state,” Colorado GOP Chairman Ryan Call said, pointing out the Centennial State’s tradition of often electing a Republican majority to the Legislature, alongside a moderate Democrat for governor. Colorado Democratic Party Chairman Rick Palacio said much the same. He said that in Jeffco there is almost a perfect threeway balance between registered Democrats, Republicans and Independents. “I think we’re one of the most evenly divided states in the nation. And Jefferson County really is a microcosm for the rest of the state,” Palacio said. Some counties are safely in the hands of one party, like El Paso County for the GOP and Boulder County for the Democrats. “They kind of cancel each other out, so to win the state it becomes all about those swing counties, like Arapahoe County and Jefferson County,” Call said.
‘Colorado has gone from being a relatively safe Republican state to a very important battleground state.’ Brendan Doherty, political science researcher
Demographic trends and new voter registrations tend to favor the Democratic Party, but Call said he thinks Colorado’s independent nature, and recent “overreaches” of legislative policy by Democrats at the state and federal level will cause the pendulum to swing back in the GOP’s
favor in the future. “I think Colorado will continue to be a battleground to see what party and philosophy will carry the day. I think that is healthy because it keeps politicians more accountable, and closer to the electorate,” Call said. Palacio said he also sees the state remaining a swing state for the foreseeable future. “I think Coloradans just vote for the higher quality candidate, and in 2012 that was definitely the Democrats,” Palacio said. According to Doherty, battleground states clearly receive more campaign and media focus, which has economic benefits, but also the side effect of bombarding residents with an even greater number of political ads. Presidential candidates will be likely to continue visiting the state. Doherty said that there “definitely the perception” that all those visits make the winning candidate more sensitive to the wants and needs of a state. All those candidate visits are not without their own costs, starting with multiple road closures. Secret Service also requires local law enforcement to assist in presidential candidate security, racking up tens of thousands of dollars in staffing costs for even the shortest of rallies. That money is never reimbursed. “But votes matter more in a battleground state,” Doherty said. “I’d say that’s the biggest benefit.”

Barack Obama (D) 51 percent to 46 percent
George W. Bush (R) 52 percent to 47 percent

Literacy matters in a democratic society Don’t you just love rankings, checking out where we stack up against others? For example, Colorado consistently ranks as the most fit state in the nation. But did you know that Arvada ranks No. 6 among the most physically active cities in America? And last year, Jefferson County was recognized for best wellness programs in the workplace. One recent ranking places the Denver area in the top five in another important category: most literate cities. Up from 10th last year, Denver is now No. 5, based on number of bookstores, library resources, newspaper circulation, periodical publishing resources, Internet resources, and educational attainment. This particular set of factors measures people’s use of their literacy, considered essential to individual economic success, civic participation and the quality of life in a community. The survey, conducted by Central Connecticut State University, expands the definition of reading, too, by counting online book orders, e-book readers, and page views on local newspaper websites.
Those of us who live here — with our fantastic library resources and our strong educational institutions — can understand why we rank so high. Washington, D.C., Seattle and Minneapolis stayed at numbers 1, 2 and 3 respectively. However, literacy continues to be a challenge for our nation overall. Data from the 2007 National Assessment of Adult Literacy (NAAL) shows that literacy proficiency declined from 1992 to 2003, the most recent study period. Broadly, NAAL defines literacy as the skills required to perform tasks that include “the ability to use printed and written information to function in society, to achieve
one’s goals, and to develop one’s knowledge and potential.” What’s troubling is that scores for adults at all levels of education declined during this period, some significantly. Adults with some high school were down nine points in “prose literacy” (locating and comparing information, for example) and high school graduates were down six points in prose. Alarmingly, college graduates were down 11 points in prose and 14 points in “document literacy” (reading a map or bus schedule), and adults with graduate studies or degrees were down 13 points in prose and 17 points in document literacy. Literacy in our country and our communities matters. Literacy fosters the growth of self-identity and encourages individual and self-analytical thinking. Literacy enhances the ability to read, infer and draw conclusions. And, importantly, literacy gives us a stake in our democracy, because citizens who can read and write and think can make more informed decisions. It will be interesting to see what hap-
pens to our nation’s literacy rates in the 10 years between 2003 and 2013, although we won’t have that data for a few more years. In any case, we seem to be faring well here at home at using our literacy. It’s up to us, though, to keep Colorado and our communities on an upward trend. We need to support our schools and libraries, and our area’s thriving literary community. We must read to our kids and read ourselves to sleep. We need to read, to think, to share. Because everyone benefits when citizens participate in our democratic society as informed decision makers. That’s why literacy matters. So, say it loud and say it proud: “We’re No. 5!”

Arvada Center produces an outstanding show Once again the Arvada Center has done an outstanding job with a beloved classic. Under the direction of Rod Lansberry, “Man of La Mancha,” the award winning musical, is vaulted to a whole new level. The Lansberry rendition is far more straightforward and serious than the other iterations I have seen, and I like it very much. I finally actually understand the story within the story of Cervantes, along with his servant, being falsely imprisoned. In an attempt to secure their wellbeing, Cervantes, an author and actor presents a play to his fellow prisoners. Thanks, Rod. The cast was so talented that it took my breath away. Every aspect of the production was done to near perfection. I suppose at this point I should point out a flaw or two. Sorry, none come to mind. One of my favorite tunes from the mu-
sical is “Dulcinea,” and I can’t get it out of my head. Strangely though, that’s all right with me. The run ends on April 14. For tix and info: 720-898-7200 or www.arvadacenter. org.
‘A Weekend with Pablo Picasso’
The Denver Center Theatre Company’s production “A Weekend with Pablo Picasso” turned out to be one of the most interesting pieces of theater I’ve seen in recent memory. Herbert Siguenza not only wrote the intriguing play, but he plays the title role in the one-man show. The
story is inspired by the writings of the eccentric artist. Siguenza is Picasso. He plays the role with abandon and conviction. His interactions with the audience are charming and certainly capture the interest of those present, as they watch him paint. It appears that he is actually a pretty fair artist in his own right and there’s a surprise for one chosen member of said audience at the end of the performance. Just one note of warning, there is no intermission so plan ahead.
‘Other Desert Cities’
If you are a Democrat, you’ll love the philosophy espoused in “Other Desert Cities.” If you’re a Republican, as we say in the vernacular, not so much. There is, however, much to appreciate regardless of political persuasion. The well-told story features
unanticipated surprises as family secrets emerge. The very liberal author-daughter from New York returns to her childhood home in Palm Springs for Christmas. She has written a new book and is rightfully concerned about her family’s reaction. The tension mounts as she and her Reagan Republican parents fall into old patterns. A brother and an aunt add texture to this intriguing production while strong acting propels the plot. Unfortunately, I missed some of the dialogue from the soft-spoken daughter. I corrected that situation at intermission by getting a headset to amplify the sound. Both “A Weekend with Pablo Picasso” and “Other Desert Cities” run through April 28 at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts. For tix and info: 303-893-4100 or www. denvercenter.org. Until next time, I’ll see you around town.

OPINIONS / YOURS AND OURS
Amid tragedy is forgiveness, accountability Forgiveness itself is not often a topic in an editorial, but the recent words of Lisa Clements, wife of slain Colorado prisons chief Tom Clements, inspire food for thought. She stood with her two daughters by her side at her husband’s service March 25 in Colorado Springs and said, “We pray for forgiveness and peace for the family of the man suspected of taking Tom’s life, and we pray every day for forgiveness and peace in our own hearts.” She noted she shares her husband’s belief in redemption and the ability for the human heart to be changed. Her comments echo many other expressions of forgiveness in news reports
OUR VIEW through the years. One surely was the reaction of the Amish community in Lancaster, Pa., after a 32-year-old gunman killed several girls in a one-room schoolhouse before killing himself in 2006. While the Amish community was not inclined to interact with the media, its stance was clear to not think evil of the gunman and instead pray for the shooter’s family,
Do you prepare your own taxes? As this year’s tax filing deadline on April 15 quickly approaches, we took a few moments to ask local residents about their filing preferences on a warm Sunday afternoon at the Margaret Carpenter Park and Open Space in Thornton.
“I’ve had someone prepare it for me for the past five years because when I tried to prepare my own taxes, I messed up and forgot that I sold some stocks and the IRS said I owed them additional money.” — Darrin McKinnon, Brighton
“It’s too hard for me to do it, so it’s easier to me to have someone else work on it instead of having to explain the tax laws and translate it into English because it’s my second language.” — Ana Cobos, Brighton
“I did the tax returns for my wife and I have for many years, but because my wife still has a deal with a tax service for a small business that we just closed up, we decided to have someone else prepare it for us this year.” — Tom Rice, Commerce City
“I usually have someone prepare my taxes for me, because it takes a lot of time and can be very difficult to understand at times — you don’t want to make a mistake.” — Jorge Beckmann, Brighton

And while each person’s offer of forgiveness is based on various factors — such as whether remorse is expressed — a commitment to forgiveness reflects the best in all of us, a step toward mending and somehow improving the future to come. In a recent CNN interview, Lisa Clements said she could be enraged but chooses not to be angry with news that an errant court proceeding allowed the gunman to be released from prison four years early. She said she will not let it consume her. While she supports this need for accountability, we admire her strength as she champions a commitment to forgiveness and the steadfast view she shares with her husband that people can change.
A little more brain power
QUESTION OF THE WEEK
which was further conveyed by neighbors who interacted with the tight-knit community. Some Amish even reached out to comfort the family of the gunman. Although the level of forgiveness to some surely seemed too generous, it seemed to quiet the surrounding community as it respectfully honored the perspective of its neighbors, the direct victims of the shooting. We noticed a similar effect following Lisa Clements’ thoughtful statements. The complex mix of grieving, accountability and forgiveness is too much for any one editorial, but we venture to say the heart does not so quickly follow the mind once someone has decided to forgive.

Doing taxes this week so I have very little brain-RAM to spare — certainly not enough to keep a coherent train of thought together. But, nevertheless, a handful of thoughts have penetrated the IRS-induced stupor, and here’s the result: • In case you were keeping score, this Legislature, which, according to Rep. Tracy Kraft-Tharp, et al., has “the economy as their No. 1 focus,” has so far managed to pass bills that drove away 2,000 jobs, while not yet getting around to passing anything to help the economy. • I rarely have control of the TV remote, so I don’t often get to just flip around the prime time lineup to see what’s on. But the other night, I was flipping around, and I caught a glimpse of the show “Smash.” And there, on the screen, is Bernadette Peters, one of the grand dames of musical theater, singing a beautiful duet. Y’know, there are people in this world whose talent is so prodigious that it lights up a room, even through the television screen. I wonder if she was ever told not to pursue her dreams because her test scores were too low ... • Regarding Coach Mike Rice and the Rutgers basketball team: In this day and age, barely six months removed from an election which a man lost in part because of a cell phone video, for a person in a position of power to lose control in a public place like that is inexcusable. All the rest aside, he might just be too dumb to have that job. • I am slightly encouraged that Sen. Mike Johnston’s education funding bill includes $100 million for innovation. Maybe we can use that to stop talking about testing and start driving for real innovation. • Speaking of luminous talents, over the last week, I have caught on cable parts of the movies “Outbreak,””Congo,””The 13th
Warrior” and “Twister,” all brought to us from the prolific mind of Michael Crichton. • And I’m so glad to see that the Associated Press has officially decided to drop the use of the term “Illegal Immigrant” to describe people who have, um, immigrated to this country illegally. George Orwell, phone home. • Come to think of it, there is one class of people whose employment I would love to see reduced: tax attorneys. And not that I have anything against tax attorneys, but the Byzantine nature of the U.S. tax code is really only good for two things: attorney employment, and I hear it makes a great reinforcement to sand walls in case of a flood. • And in case you missed it, through the first series of the major league baseball season (three games), every team but one has a loss. That’s the nature of baseball — it’s such a long season that even the best teams lose a lot of games, and I’ve always felt there’s a lot more to be learned in a loss than in a win. It’s called character, and it’s why baseball used to be such an important part of the American fabric.

some things sink and others float? Why does a boat float? Why does a plastic spoon float and a metal one sink? Carrying on conversations, experimenting, and asking questions are keys to learning.

You might want to use a large bowl or dishpan instead of the sink. If no soap is involved children may use the water for plants after playing. Bring out different sized containers. Carry on a conversation about heavy and light, float and sink, shallow and deep, greater and less than, before and after, as you fill and empty containers together.

What to do:
ess Set up a kitchen chair or two at a her sink surrounded by two other chairs so children are boxed in safely. Place towels around to absorb spilled water. Expect the counter, floor, and children to get wet. Children can also get in a bathtub under supervision. Turn on the faucet very low and check often for a safe temperature. Children can start by putting their toys through a slow faucet “car wash”. Put a few drops of dish soap in a container and swish around to make suds, wash, and rinse toys. Make
What else can we do?
Assemble tongs, strainers, scoops, hand whisks, and eggbeaters. Children can use the tools to make suds and waves. If there is no little boat around, make one out of tin foil. Encourage children to make a story of figures floating in a container when a big storm (with sound effects) comes up. How will children save them? They can also use tongs to catch “fish” or dig for small treasures on the “ocean” floor. All of these activities help build small and large muscles and scientific minds.

Classic case of who did it Briarwood hosts Casablanca-style murder mystery By Clarke Reader
tough as nails private eye, a mysterious femme fatale and more than a few shady characters. If this sounds like a Raymond Chandler novel or a Humphrey Bogart picture, it wouldn’t be far from the mark. It’s a snapshot of the “Murder at Cafe Noir,” a dinner theater production at the Briarwood Inn, presented by The Edge Theatre. The play runs on April 13, 19, 20, 26, 27 and May 3 and 4 at the Briarwood, 1630 8th St. in Golden. Tickets are $65 (plus tax and service). Cocktails start at 6:30 p.m. and dinner and the show starts at 7 p.m. “Murder at Cafe Noir” is the first in a trilogy of plays penned by New Jersey playwright David Landau, all of which take the film noir genre from the 1930s and ‘40s and bring it to life on stage for diners. “We really try to bring to life those great old black-and-white films,” said director Cindy Ergenbright. “We have all the actors dress in only black and white and encourage the audience to wear ‘40’s style black, white or gray attire.” Ergenbright has served on the board for

Black-market dealer Anthony Cairo (Andrew Parker) and Marie Larue (Lauren Russell) trade information in “Murder at Café Noir.” The Edge and has a lot of connections to the theater, so when the Briarwood called to see if The Edge could do a murder mystery show, she stepped up. “I really like the dinner theater atmosphere because I’m not one of those directors who has everything pre-planned,” she said. “I prefer to have the actors do what they’re feeling, and it becomes much more organic. It’s a nice way to let them have control over what they do.” The story follows Rick Archer, private eye, who gets hired to find a runaway woman, and follows her to the island of Mustique, part of the Grenadine Islands in the Caribbean. The owner of the local watering hole has been found murdered and the woman he’s searching for was the last person seen with him. It’s up to Archer to sort through the riffraff that’s washed into the Cafe Noir — from the manager Madam Toreau, black-market dealer Anthony Cairo and disgraced British barrister Simon Gutterman — and find out who the real murderer is.
Actor Michael Parker — who plays Gutterman — started his career in New Jersey and was in the first production of “Murder at the Cafe Noir,” and has played several roles in various other productions. He said the show is reminiscent of “Casablanca,” and that doing the play in the dinner-theater format is a great way to keep the show fresh. “It’s so much more fun this way, because you have the play and improv at the same time,” he said. “It’s the same show every night, yet different depending on the audience responses. It’s the best of both worlds.” One of Parker’s favorite parts of the show is the writing, and how strong the mystery is. “If you like detective stories, you’re going to love this,” he said. “You really have to know how to figure out a mystery to solve this. There is a lot of fun, and a few red herrings along the way.” The Briarwood will be serving food based around the show, and Ergenbright said it’s a beautiful venue for the show.
Remember when “take me out to the ball game” meant a meal of peanuts and crackerjack along with a hot dog and beer? So imagine what a healthy home run that Aramark, Coors Field’s exclusive concessionaire, is hitting with the introduction of a sustainable garden at Gate A of the ball field. The Colorado Rockies and Aramark have partnered with The Institute for the Built Environment at Colorado State University and Designs by Sundown to produce the on-site garden, which will provide the concessionaire with herbs and vegetables for use in Coors Field’s Mountain Ranch Club menu and build-your-own salad station. The design of “The Garden,” which is its official name, mimics a baseball stadium, with raised beds terracing upward from The Garden’s “infield” to the outfield and then to the stands. Ornamental flowers, followed by herbs, followed by vegetables will be on display for fans that pass through Gate A over the course of the Rockies’ season. The beds will be constructed of beetle kill pinewood sourced from Morgan Timber Products of Fort Collins. The plantings will be propagated at CSU from seeds adapted to the Colorado climate. The installation of The Garden marks a further commitment by the Rockies and Aramark to develop environmentally friendly programs in alignment with Major League Baseball’s recent green focus. On the other side of the snack spectrum, Aramark has added plenty of indulgent items that first were offered with last the April 5 home opener. They are: • Sausage on a stick — Italian, smoked cheddar, spicy Polish sausage. • Carnitas nachos — tortilla chips smothered in green chili queso topped with pork carnitas, jalapenos, pico de gallo and sour cream. • Smothered empanada — topped with former Bronco Mark Schlereth’s Stinkin’ Green Chili, shredded lettuce, pico de gallo and sour cream. • Pizza nachos — fresh fried pizza dough chips topped with house-made marinara sauce, shredded mozzarella, diced pepperoni and sausage. • Rib eye sandwich — a 4-ounce rib eye served with sliced Havarti horseradish cheese, topped with onion tanglers and tangy gold barbecue sauce. • Souvenir refillable popcorn.
Laird lands at Sarto’s
Since talented chef Brian Laird left Barolo Grill, after a 12-year stint in command of the kitchen, he bounced around Denver’s dining scene between the nowshuttered Russo’s in the Vallagio development in Arapahoe County to the now-shuttered RockBar on East Colfax to Sketch at 101 Broadway. I don’t think that Laird knew what he wanted to do when he grew up. But the boy wonder (he looks younger than his years) finally has landed at a spot I think he can call home. Sarto’s, a northern Italian eatery poised to open in the fall in a vacant century-old property at the corner of Eliot Street and 25th Avenue, will be the centerpiece of an emerging neighborhood between Highland and Sports Authority Field. Laird and majority owners Taylor Swallow and Kjsa Gotlin share a passion for Parker continues on Page 19

The news is that Moreno has made her morning debut. “We are very pleased to have Britt join CBS4,” said news director Tim Wieland. “She is a great journalist who connects with viewers and will be a strong addition to our talented team.”
Looking for love
Was Denverite Eric Elkins looking for love in all the wrong places? Perhaps that’s why he decided to give “The Steve Harvey Show” a shot. Elkins, a social media expert, put his love life in the comedian/talk show host’s hands. “A single dad who says he’s ready to date comes to Steve for help finding Mrs. Right. Can Steve help him find a love connection?” says a post on Harvey’s website. Apparently Cupid’s arrow found its target: A brunette named “Erin,” who has agreed to go on a date with Elkins in Colorado. You can comment on what you think chances are that there’s a love connection at www. steveharveytv.com/single-dad-date/. “The Steve Harvey Show” airs at 9 a.m. weekdays on KTVD, Channel 20.

Both shows are on display at the Lakewood Cultural Center, 470 S. Allison Parkway, and Civic Center, 480 S. Allison Parkway, through May 5. There is a free artist reception for both exhibits from 5-7 p.m. on Thursday, April 25, at the galleries. “We have had the middle school exhibit here for more than 10 years,” said arts curator Lorene Joos. “It’s one of the exhibits our city employees really look forward to.” The Jefferson Foundation Middle School Art Exhibit is a juried show that fills up the Cultural Center’s North and Mezzanine galleries. There are all kinds of styles and works on display and Joos said that a common question staff hears from visitors is “are those really middle school students?” “Throughout the time the exhibit is on display we see dads coming in to see their children’s work, and grandparents visiting as well,” she said. “It’s also great to see the students show up for the artist reception.” Joos said one of the best things about art education for students is that it helps students to think creatively. She said in art there are no right answers, and the exhibit shows that because visitors will see how many variations there are on the same assignment. The Ninth Annual Jeffco Juried Teachers Exhibit is on display at the Civic Center’s James J. Richey gallery. It’s not just for art teachers, but any who

wants to contribute a piece for consideration. The exhibit features works in a variety of mediums, including ceramics, sculpture, photography, painting, drawing, collage and mixed media. “We get a lot of the teacher’s students and former students stop by to see the work they do,” Joos said. This year’s exhibit is sponsored by the Heritage, Culture and the Arts (HCA) Alliance for the first time. Part of that sponsorship means there will be prizes handed out, including an $1,000 winning prize. According to Debbie Koop, the president of the HCA Alliance, the organization wanted to sponsor the event to acknowledge all the work that teachers do. “This is the first time we’re giving money for prizes, but we really like to support the art community in Lakewood because they do such wonderful things,” Koop said. “We really wanted to support the schools as well, especially the teachers who work so hard.” For more information on the exhibit, contact Joos at email@example.com or visit www.lakewood.org.

Park places pack a punch in Golden Pretty much every city or town has a park. In a small town when you go to the park it usually means grass and a swing set with a slide for the kids, some sports fields and maybe a picnic spot with a gazebo or even an old canon sitting on a cement slab with a plaque telling about some historic event. Lately there have been skate parks popping up all over the place as well. All across the country, if you have seen one local park, you’ve pretty much seen them all. But in Golden, we do things a little differently. We have a kayak park and that’s a pretty cool thing to have. I love going there in the spring when the water is running kind of high and taking my camera along. That’s when the kayakers and boogie boarders head to the park to practice a little bit and you see loads of colorful boats and gear all working the rapids and trying things like standing the kayak on it’s nose, Eskimo rolls and generally playing in the white water. You can get some really awesome shots there that will make your friends think that you are a hot shot extreme sports photographer, and you can shoot them all from the river bank without even getting your feet wet. Just ask the kayakers if you can shoot them (they always say yes), offer to send them some pictures, and trust me, you will get a wall full of great photos. It really makes for a fun
Sellers are asked to bring in their gear by Thursday, April 18, so it can be listed for sale. For more information check out www.goldenriversports.net or call 303-215-9386.
A little bit more intimate
afternoon. Golden also has a great variety of independent, excellent shops that carry the best outdoor gear you can find anywhere. Mountaineering, mountain and road bikes, and yes, we have some shops specializing in river sports, too. One of them is Golden River Sports, 809 Washington Ave. You can’t miss it, it is on the west side of the street and always has a bunch of bright colored kayaks out in front. It has its own parking lot and on the weekend of April 19-21 it will hold its Annual Spring Gear Swap. If you have any gear you want to sell, then this is the place to get rid of it and if you are looking for some bargains on either new or used gear, you probably want to check this out. It is offering sellers either a 100 percent store credit for their gear or 80 percent of the cash. Plus everything in the store will be 10-50 percent off. It still has a bunch of 2012 closeout stuff so you will probably find a good deal there too.
Just a reminder that the members of the Jefferson Symphony will hold a recital on Saturday, April 13, at the First United Methodist Church, 1500 Ford St. in Golden, featuring smaller ensembles in a more intimate setting. The concert features a great selection of classical music including Massenet’s Meditation from Thais, Telemann’s Concerto No. 2 for Violas, Dukas’ Villanelle for French Horn and Piano, Shostakovich’s Sonata for Cello and Piano, Holst’s Terzetto for Flute, Oboe and Viola and Charles Beriot’s Scene de Ballet for Violin and Piano. The concert will also feature the Timberline Brass Quintet and the Alpine Brass Trio. Show time is 7 p.m., tickets are only $10 and you can get them at the door. For more information go to www.jeffsymphony.org or call 303278-4237 John Akal is a well-known jazz artist/ drummer and leader of the 20-piece Ultraphonic Jazz Orchestra.

of the finish line, as the crowd laughed. “Well, we made it further this year!” Alvarado said, before heading down the creek bank to pick up more pieces of their foundered craft. The team of Nic Martin and Ryan Logan did much better, maneuvering their canoe-shaped cardboard craft, with Pabst Blue Ribbon beer case packaging featured prominently on the prow. Their paddles: Franzia box wine packages. Martin admitted that his team had a pretty strong advantage over many of the competitors. “Well, we’re both civil engineers and both in the
Mines kayak club too,” Martin said, while trying to dry out his soggy canoe before competing in the finals. “It’s awesome that the whole school is out here, cheering for us … well to fail, but still,” Martin said. Part of that crowd was Tom Godfrey, watching his daughter compete in the boat race. “This is a blast, and it’s cool that a college is doing something like this for the kids,” Godfrey said. The E-Days festivities ended with a bang on Saturday night. Mines students, alumni and family were treated to a concert by AWOLNATION. As the band’s last notes echoed into the spring evening, the E-Days fireworks show began.
Projects: Road could see 25K vehicle trips daily Projects continued from Page 1
fic projections show the road approaching as many as 25,000 vehicle trips a day in coming years. Also on the county’ s todo list was a continuation of FASTER Safety Projects. FASTER (Funding Advancement for Surface Transportation and Economic Recovery) is a grant program administered by the state to local governments for the purpose of improving pedestrian and alternate transportation infrastructure. “We look at shoulders, curbs and sidewalks, whenever we can, to be done in conjunction with repaving,” French said.
Golden homes added
Also during their April 2 meeting, the commissioners unanimously approved a four-lot subdivision on the northeastern side of North Table Mountain near Golden. A development of 34 residential lots was once proposed on the site, now called Wild Horse Mesa, but continuing access issues led the applicant to downgrade. At issue is the land’s only access along West 53rd Drive, a cul-de-sac
road that already serves more than the 35 maximum recommended by county guidelines. There were plans of direct road access from Easley Road, but it would have required the land owner to negotiate with Jeffco Open Space, and with Denver Water for an easement and construction of a bridge over an irrigation ditch to reach the lots. “It just didn’t make economic sense, even with 34 lots,” applicant Susan Tindell said. There is an existing bridge over the ditch, currently used by maintenance crews, which both the applicant and Denver Water claim ownership over. The disputed bridge will be designated as an emergency evacuation route in case of fire. District 3 Commissioner Donald Rosier said it would be wrong to place the entire economic and legal burden to provide a secondary road access to residences along West 53rd just because it was the latest in a long line of developments along the road. He suggested instead, that the entire area look into a collaborative effort to improve access.

Demons dominant in win over Bulldogs Arvada will try to forget loss, prep for league play By Daniel Williams
firstname.lastname@example.org ARVADA - It was a get-right game for one team and an everything-went-wrong game for the other. Golden girls’ soccer beat up on Arvada 10-0 Wednesday at North Area Athletic Complex. The Demons scored eight first half goals and then ended the game early when they scored two more goals early in the second half. “We really needed a game like this,” Golden coach Josh Nolker said. “Everyone got involved and it was a real confidence and momentum builder going into (4A Jeffco) league play.” Golden sophomore Katie Tubbs scored three goals and assisted on three more, and fellow sophomore Julianne Enquist scored a pair of goals. Arvada on the other hand will do everything possible to forget about this loss as soon as possible. The Bulldogs opened their season going unbeaten in their first three games. Since, they have dropped three in a row. “We need to forget about that loss and go back to work because league play is here and now every game matters,” Arvada coach Stuart Detlefsen said. Arvada scored nine goals in their three wins, scoring four goals in two of those games. However, the Bulldogs have only scored once over their previous three games. Golden thinks they are just starting to peak. After battling though a very tough nonleague schedule Nolker thinks his team is now battletested. The Demons record isn’t necessarily flattering, but it also isn’t a true indication of who they really are.

Our record isn’t great but our nonleague schedule has been very difficult. But we think we are just starting to put things together,” Nolken said.
Golden (3-4-1) will play at Wheat Ridge High School Thursday at 4 p.m. Arvada (2-3-2) will play Evergreen at NAAC Thursday at 4 p.m.
Wheat Ridge baseball rolls over helpless Bulldogs Bear Creek looking to get back on track; A-West wins By Daniel Williams
email@example.com WHEAT RIDGE - Wheat Ridge baseball overwhelmed Arvada with offense beating the Bulldogs 17-1 Saturday at Wheat Ridge High School. Five different Farmers had multi-hit games and that didn’t include senior Danny Allen’s fourth inning grand slam. Arvada, which opened the season undefeated in their first three games, has since lost three straight by a combined 36 points. The Bulldogs (2-3-1) will attempt to get back on track when they play at Alameda Thursday at 4 p.m. Wheat Ridge (2-4) snapped a four game skid with their win. The Farmers will play at Conifer High School Thursday at 4 p.m.
BEARS BEAT BACK TO BACK
After winning three straight games Bear
Creek baseball has dropped two straight games in ugly fashion. The Bears were beat 11-1 at Loveland High School on Thursday and then beat again 10-0 Saturday at Fairview High School. If the Bears plan on getting back on track it will be behind the bat of senior Bobby Baca who is hitting .370 this season. Bear Creek (5-5) will host Westminster Saturday at 11 p.m.
PRIOLA LEADS WILDCATS
After dropping back-to-back one run games Arvada West used a brilliant pitching effort to win 10-1 at Castle View High School on Saturday. Junior Nick Priola threw six innings of shutout baseball and then went 1-for-2 from the plate with an RBI. Offensively the Wildcats combined for 11 hits as six different players recorded hits. However, Arvada West (2-7-1) has failed to find consistency this season from both their offense and pitching. The Wildcats will play at Frederick High School Thursday at 4:15 p.m.
TIGERS TAKE LOSS
Lakewood baseball’s roller-coaster season continued with a 4-3 loss Wednesday at Legend High School. The Tigers scored two first inning runs but couldn’t hold on to a 3-1 lead. Lakewood senior Connor Leedholm went 2-for-3 and junior Parker Cormack hit a triple which drove in a run. Senior George Coughlin took the loss but was solid in throwing a complete game. The Tigers (5-4), who cannot find stability in the win-loss column, will host Thomas Jefferson Saturday at 11 a.m.
RAMS WIN BIG AGAIN
After losing three straight games Green Mountain bounced back with back-to-back victories. The Rams beat Arvada 10-0 on Wednesday and then followed that up with a 7-1 win over Evergreen on Saturday. In Green Mountain’s win over Evergreen freshman Wyatt Featherston didn’t have a hit but scored three times. The Rams (4-3) will host Golden Friday at 4 p.m.
EAGLES WIN FOUR IN ROW
Faith Christian baseball beat up on Peak to Peak beating them 11-1 Saturday at Faith Christian High School. Senior Ian Loffert went 2-for-2 which included a towering home run. Fellow senior Steven Galambos went 2-for-3 with three RBI and he scored three times as well. The Eagles have now won four straight games beating their opponents 42-6 in the process. Faith Christian (5-1) will play at University High School Thursday at 4 p.m.
MUSTANGS GO STREAKING
Ralston Valley baseball is streaky. After opening up the season with five straight victories the Mustangs have since lost their last four games. Their latest loss was a 4-2 defeat Thursday at Monarch High School. Their other three losses came to out of state opponents while participating in the Chris Moon Memorial Tournament in Arizona.

Mines get sweep over Black Hills State behind Goletz Baseball sweeps too; track and field setting records By Daniel Williams
BASEBALL SWEETS TOO
Colorado School of Mines baseball team capped-off a four-game sweep of visiting Adams State with a 14-5 win in Sunday’s series finale at Jim Darden Field in Golden. Led by a string of multi-hit efforts from the top half of the batting order, as well as a quality start from freshman righty Christian Rooney, Mines (12-15, 10-10 RMAC) carried
Pitcher Ashley Goletz was key in Colorado School of Mines sweep over Black Hills State. Courtesy photo of Mines Athletics over its potent offensive attack from the first three games of the series with 14 hits and the same number of runs on Sunday for a total of 65 scores over the four-game stretch. The conference sweep was the first for an Oredigger squad since the team captured all four games against visiting Colorado Christian on March 20-22, 2008. Batters No. 1 through No. 5 on the Oredigger squad posted 11 of the squad’s 14 hits during the contest, led by a 3-for-5 effort from All-American Bobby Egeberg, who continued his torrid hitting over the past few weekends with a 3-for-5 effort with two runs scored and two RBI. Egeberg added three steals on three attempts and reached base or produced a run in 5-of-6 plate appearances out of the lead-

off spot. Sophomore third baseman Zach Bothwell extended his current hitting streak to eight games after finishing 2-for-2 with two runs scored and an RBI on Sunday and walked four times to reach base in all six plate appearances. Sunday’s effort pushed his average on the season to .344 and upped his on-base percentage to .455.
TIMMER A RECORD BREAKER Sophomore Ben Timmer broke the school record in the pole vault and senior Bailey Hoover reestablished the program mark in the hammer throw as the Colorado School of Mines outdoor track and field teams concluded the three-day Air Force Relays at the Cadet Outdoor Track and Field
Complex in Colorado Springs. Timmer recorded his second NCAA Provisional in as many weekends, clearing 157.00 (4.75 meters) on his second attempt Saturday and breaking the 10-year old Mines record of 15-6.00, set by Zane Prickett in 2003. The fourth-best effort of the afternoon leads the RMAC by 2.5 inches and is tied for 22nd nationally. Hoover improved her school-record hammer throw of 156-3 from last year’s RMAC Championships by over five feet with a launch of 161-6 (49.22 meters), finishing as the day’s top Division II thrower and seventh overall out of 23 competitors. Hoover also bettered her personal-record in the discus with relative ease, taking seventh out of 20 with a distance of 131-9 (40.17 meters).

GOLDEN - Strong pitching and an allaround effort at the plate allowed the No. 13 Colorado School of Mines softball team to defeat Black Hills State Sunday 6-1 completing its third four-game conference sweep of the season. Senior Ashley Goletz was workmanlike in the circle, throwing 63-of-89 (70.8 percent) pitches for strikes and scattering eight hits with one earned run, one walk and four strikeouts in 7 innings to improve to 11-3. Goletz is tied for fourth in the RMAC in wins and eighth in strikeouts with 59. Macy Jones helped put the game out of reach in the sixth, driving in two with a deep triple to the fence in right center, extending her team-leading hitting streak to 10 straight. The senior speedster went 1-for-4 with the two RBI and became co-owner of the all-time RMAC and school record for triples, equaling Heidi Bauer (2002-04) with the 15th of her career and conference-best fifth of the season. With wind gusts reaching upwards of 30 miles per hour, Mines executed small ball to perfection in the early innings, capturing a 2-0 lead after four with nearly identical sequences in the second and fourth frames. Junior Sami Springer led off each at-bat with bunt singles; sophomore Cassie Ford followed with sacrifice bunts down the first base side and senior Molly Thiebaut then plated Springer with RBI singles to centerfield.

REAL ESTATE AGENT SPOTLIGHT OF THE WEEK How long have you been in real estate? What is one tip you would give for someone looking to Pat Salankey 10 years. I had always wanted to be a part of the real estate sell a house? Broker/Owner
business since college!
Salankey Real Estate Group Metro Brokers Phone: 303-669-3590 Fax: 720-465-9340 Web-Site: www.patsmlsidx.com How long have you been in Denver? I was born here, and I never left! My entire family including my two children and parents live in very close proximity. The old joke rings true- “Once you come to Arvada you may never leave!”
What is your specialty and what does this mean for the people you work with? I specialize in residential real estate and property management. I enjoy working closely with buyers, sellers and investors. I provide valuable insight to the marketplace in order to find direction and options for a client’s specific needs. What do you find most challenging about your work? Simply there are not enough hours in the day! Above all, I focus on taking the time to ensure clients are feeling good about their transaction.
What do you like most about it? With beautiful views and large, spacious lots, Arvada is a very family-oriented town. We are withPro-in minutes to the mountains- for golfing, fishing, g 15-camping, hiking and skiing. And while in close emptproximity to Denver for “big-city” activities Arvada oldmaintains a small town feeling.
What do you most enjoy doing when you’re not working? Spending time with friends and family is most enjoyable. We like to head up to the mountains to hike, golf, fish, ski or just camp out for a few days. Whenever possible we get together for family din dinners. There’s always a project around the house. I am a loyal Broncos fan as well. Go Broncos!
Above all-, hire a professional, knowledgeable agent. In addition, the way you live in a house and the way you show it are quite different. You want to “stage your home and declutter before showing it (when selling your house it is really a business at that point). What is one tip you would give someone looking to buy a house? Hire a knowledgeable agent and get prequalified with a lender. Be patient and realistic. The market has changed. We do not have the high inventory we used to. However, new construction is omnipresent in Arvada and the surrounding areas, which is creating many exciting new purchasing opportunities. Try to be flexible in your expectations, but be ready to make the offer as well-priced homes move very quickly. What is the most unusual thing you’ve encountered in Real Estate? Besides making dreams come true the beauty of the real estate business is that every aspect of every single day is DIFFERENT! We learn to embrace the challenges and live for the victories.

Buying a home? Avoid these mistakes
he dream of home ownership is one that lives on in spite of the global economic struggles. The process of buying a home can be an emotional roller coaster ride, with feelings of excitement
mixed in with exhaustion, fear and uncertainty. Over the last several years, the real estate market has been turned upside down, and many prospective buyers have begun to question some of the conventional wisdom associ-
ated with buying a home. While such skepticism might be a healthy attitude in the current market, prospective buyers -- particularly those who have never purchased a home before -should avoid the following mistakes that buyers make
regardless of whether the market is up or down. * Failure to get qualified beforehand. Mortgage qualification is essential when buying a home, as it gives buyers preapproval for a loan before they make any offers. Making an offer on a home before you know what the bank is willing to lend you is a waste of time for everyone involved, including you, the seller and the real estate agents involved. Some agents will not show a home if you don’t have a preapproval. Once preapproved for a loan, don’t take any steps that might put that approval in jeopardy. This includes anything that might drastically alter your credit score. * Being blindsided by additional costs. Firsttime homebuyers, once they have moved into their home, often experience some sticker shock when the additional expenses associated with home ownership arise. These additional expenses include property tax and insurance costs and can be substantial. Even those buying a condominium or co-op should expect monthly maintenance fees
even if their new place is brand new and needs no maintenance. * Shooting for the moon. The ongoing recession is in part the result of predatory lending that saw banks grant excessive loans to applicants who, in hindsight, could not actually afford all that they were approved to borrow. The result was many people buying homes they could not afford, and then suffering some steep consequences, including foreclosure, when the first mortgage payment came due or the interest rate rose. First-time and even veteran buyers must avoid shooting for the moon when it comes to buying a home, and instead only buy one they know they can afford. What the banks says you can afford isn’t always the same as what you know you can afford. Only buy a home you know you can afford, regardless of whether the bank has approved you for a larger loan. * Pigeonholing yourself into an inadequate living situation. Just like buyers shouldn’t go overboard, they also must avoid compromising on the things that are most important to
them. For example, many of today’s buyers, fully aware of the rash of foreclosures and all the housing horror stories of the last several years, are reticent to commit to a home, and might compromise with a condo or co-op. But if a home is what you really want, and another living situation that mirrors apartment life is going to make you miserable, don’t settle for that situation for the sake of security. Doing so could cost you financially, especially when you realize the situation isn’t what you’d hoped for and look to sell earlier than is ideal. * Skimping on the cost of an inspector. An inspector is your last chance to find out if a home is your dream home or a money pit. Even if a house appears to be everything you want, don’t close on the sale until the house has been thoroughly inspected. The old adage that advises against judging a book by its cover certainly applies to buying a home, and prospective buyers should enlist the services of a qualified inspector before closing on the sale of a home. ■ Metro Creative Services
