Brewery revels in recycling MillerCoors facility targets zero landfill waste By Glenn Wallace The biggest North American beer brewery produces virtually no landfill waste. That accomplishment was announced June 24 at the MillerCoors Golden Brewery. “It’s not only a major milestone for our brewery, but for the entire industry,” Golden Brewery Vice President Phil Savastano said about reaching a 99 percent waste-diversion rate. The Golden brewery produces 11 million barrels of beer a year. Savastano said that prior to a year-long internal campaign to reduce waste, the facility sent 135 tons of materials to the landfill each month. After the press conference, Pete Coors said his family and their brewery has always prided itself on being innovative and improvBrewery continues on Page 22

The Golden brewery, the largest in North America, is credited as one of the more environmentally friendly facilities. MillerCoors has announced that 99 percent of all the brewery’s waste is recycled or reused instead of going to a landfill.

Ex-girlfriend testifies against accused killer Testimony focuses on alleged history of choking By Glenn Wallace A former girlfriend of murder defendant Corey Anthony Lopez, 23, told the jury about several incidents when he violently choked her, years before he allegedly strangled 21-year-old Richelle Ann Best to death. The ex-girlfriend’s testimony came on June 19, the third day of testimony in the trial. The Lakewood man is charged with POSTAL ADDRESS

first-degree murder in the 2012 death of Best, as well as attempted murder of the exgirlfriend, Samantha Eckendorf. Prosecutors asked Eckendorf specifically about a 2008 incident when, she said, Lopez attacked her after the couple had an argument. Eckendorf said the attack began when Lopez surprised her by grabbing her and throwing her onto the couple’s bed. “He just started wailing on me,” Eckendorf said, describing being punched on both sides of her jaw before Lopez began strangling her. She said the strangling went on long enough for her to lose consciousness. According to testimony, a friend at the apartment heard the altercation and intervened.

When asked if she ever reported the strangulation to law enforcement, Eckendorf said she didn’t for fear of damaging her relationship with Lopez. “As painful as it is to say after that, I still loved him and wasn’t going to leave him,” Eckendorf said. According to Eckendorf, Lopez choked her on more than one occasion. On cross-examination, Eckendorf was questioned closely about why, after saying she feared for her life with Lopez, she still carried on a friendly relationship after their breakup in December 2010. In particular, Killer continues on Page 22

Though Colorado counties will be able to regulate and tax marijuana-related businesses beginning this fall, Jefferson County will not be among them. The Jefferson County commissioners voted 3-0 to ban those types of businesses newly allowed under voter-approved Amendment 64. Under the new law, beginning Oct. 1, cities and counties can start accepting permit applications for marijuana businesses, including cultivation facilities, testing facilities, product manufacturing facilities and retail stores. Commissioners Faye Griffin, Casey Tighe and Donald Rosier all voted to approve the county ban, which calls for all such businesses to not be allowed within unincorporated Jeffco until Feb. 1, 2015. “Waiting until 2015 would allow us to see how this is going in other municipalities,” Assistant County Attorney Eric Butler said. Butler said the state still had many portions of the Amendment 64 recreational marijuana law to work out, and a November election to determine how the product will be taxed. He added that since Jeffco did not allow medicinal marijuana, the county did not even have that framework to build from. Jeffco District Attorney Pete Weir called the ban “a thoughtful and prudent approach” to help protect children. Public comment on the proposed ban was mixed, with a few members of the audience asking for the ban to be made permanent. Even proponents of recreational marijuana like Colorado NORML (National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws) board member Shawn Hauser seemed to accept that at least a temporary moratorium to sort out business taxes and regulations was appropriate. “Opting into (Amendment 64) is for the best for public safety,” Hauser said, suggesting that the ban’s length be shortened. Colorado Tobacco and Education and Prevention Alliance Executive Director Bob Doyle said he group would like to see the ban made permanent, to avoid marijuana becoming mass merchandized. “It’s not impacting home use and home growing, but it does prohibit retail marijuana,” Doyle said. Not allowing marijuana businesses will also mean not receiving marijuana tax revenues. Butler told the commissioners that by instituting the ban, Jeffco would also not be eligible for marijuana impact funds through the state.

GOLDEN NEWS IN A HURRY Water rescue in the canyon

High water levels left two Clear Creek rafters in need of assistance June 21. At 3:22 p.m. that day, Golden Dispatch received a call from the Colorado State Patrol about two rafters who were stranded on Clear Creek near mile marker 269. The rafters had been thrown into the water when their raft flipped. They were able to make it to shore on their own, but they were on the opposite side of the creek from the road with no way to get back across. Golden Fire set up a rope system and had water rescue crews work to pull the stranded rafters to safety. The rafters, 48-year-old Tim Friday, of Castle Rock, and 38-year-old Heather Beasley, of Parker, were wearing all of the proper gear, complete with helmets and life jackets. They suffered only minor injuries.

During the rescue, U.S. Highway 6 was reduced to one lane and State Patrol officers directed traffic. The rescue took less than an hour from the time of the call to 911 until the rafters were safely on the road.

Some bright ideas

Solar pros shine a light n on home improvement music


Send uS your newS

By Glenn Wallace

The sun shines down on the earth every day. In fact, June 21 was the sunniest day nline of the year, at least for the northern hemiard. sphere. But in spite of all that sunshine, some barriers remain for home owners hoping to power their residences with the power of sunlight. That is where solar industry experts can help. Enter Whitney Painter and Bart Sheldrake, the couple behind the small Golden business Buglet Solar, which they founded in 2005. Painter also serves on the city’s Community Sustainability Advisory Board. “We have an amazing solar resource here,” Whitney Painter said. “Bang for your buck, in our area, solar is the way to go.” The two were asked about some of the misconceptions out there about harnessing the abundant, renewable energy of the sun, and what tips they might have for anyone looking to partake.


One persistent myth Painter and Sheldrake have heard over the years is that homeowners think only properties with large, south-facing roofs can use solar. “The very best orientation here is actually southeast-facing roofs,” Sheldrake said. Sheldrake said that homes with very little available roof space may still have options. A car port could be built with solar panels on top. The structure can provide shelter, along with electricity for an electric car, or help power the house. He said the concept of solar gardens, large solar-panel farms in which anyone in the surrounding area can buy a share, can also be an option. The city of Golden is currently exploring options for a municipal solar garden, which ADVERTISEMENT

could eventually allow even apartments tenants to have access to solar credits. Several cities including Brighton, Westminster, and Aurora already have such systems in place. Sheldrake said currently less than 10 percent of the homes in the city have a solar-panel system, far short of the number of homes that could benefit in some way. “We’d love to see 70 to 80 percent,” Sheldrake said.


Size matters when it comes to solar-panel systems. The average household needs a four-to five-kilowatt-hour system for its electrical needs. Adding an electric car requires another two kilowatt hours. A solar professional can tell a homeowner what sized system will make sense for them, factoring in usage rates and potential energy rebates. Sheldrake said a good tip for consumers is to adjust to what might be sticker shock by finding out how much up-front cost a new solar panel system might carry. “With an electric car, it’s like buying a lifetime of fuel,” Sheldrake pointed out. With utility and state rebates, most homeowners should be able to see their investment returned in about seven years, sooner for businesses, according to Painter. Still, the two recommend shopping around and getting several estimates for solar work, as prices can vary greatly. The top tip from Painter and Sheldrake is to always have an installation professional see the residence in person. “Every house, every situation is different,” Painter said. They added that any installation team should have at least one worker certified with the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners. A good way to get started is to go to the NABCEP website at to find contact information for the 11 certified solar professionals in Golden.

The distilling of Golden’s history Golden Moon Distillery gives new life to old drinks By Glenn Wallace Stephen Gould is using some very old recipes at his very new distillery in Golden. Golden Moon Distillery was founded in 2008 by Gould, who set out to produce herbal liquors “made with the same type of artisan production processes utilized by distillers making premium products in the mid-to-late 1800s.” “It’s something of a lost art, because in the 1800s, even here in Golden, lots of immigrant distillers were probably making these recipes in their backyards,” Gould said. One example of that old fashioned style is Golden Moon’s gin, which Gould said uses many herbs and botanicals not found in the London dry gin style that currently dominates most liquor store shelves. “That has some zip,” self-professed gin fan Chip Hord of Golden said after sampling a shot in the Golden Moon tasting room last week. “I usually don’t drink it straight, but this is tasty,” Hord added. Also on the distillery’s menu is dry curacao liquor, which Gould said could fulfill a similar role as blue curacao or triple sec in most modern cocktails, though it contains

less sugar and more alcohol than either. “It’s used in dozens and dozens of classic cocktails,” Gould said. Golden Moon’s product line definitely leans towards the legendary and exotic. Also currently available is an absinthe, and a Crème di Violet.

Meet People. Make Friends.

Gould grew up in the area of Reno, Nev. Through a variety of careers, including the founder of a brew pub, a trained sauce chef, and an executive for Ford overseeing the car company’s supply chain in Asia. A business opportunity brought Gould and his wife to Golden from the Midwest in

July 2012, and he says they are here to stay. He says if all goes well, Golden Moon will expand into a “larger destination distillery” in the heart of Golden within a few years. For now, the distillery is enjoying just receiving state and federal approval to distribute different liquor varieties. Gould says Golden Moon products are now available in the distillery tasting room, as well as at several upscale bars and restaurants across the state. “If you don’t see our products at your local liquor store, just ask for them,” Gould said. The operation is an environmentally friendly one. For liquors such as his grappa, Gould said he uses the pumice grape material from Colorado wineries which otherwise would have just been thrown out. The solid remnants of the herbs used in distilling Golden Moon’s gin are sold to area farms as compost and fertilizer material. As for new products, Gould says he has quite a few ideas. He certainly has enough recipes to work from. He can boast a collection of hundreds of liquor recipe books, one of the biggest in the world. The collection ranges from as early as the 1500s to the modern day. Within those pages, Gould says, are quite a few interesting recipes, including one that has a strong Golden connection, Cherry Bounce. “Legend has it that the first sheriff of Golden used to make it and sell it on the side,” Gould said.

Don’t be short with traffic reports Dear Morning Show Radio Hosts: I’m writing to you about an issue of grave import to our community: your traffic reports. Perhaps you haven’t realized that what is said — or, more specifically, what is not said — can make or break commuters’ whole days, even before we leave our driveways. First, your traffic reports are too short. It takes more than the 15 seconds allotted for this crucial information to catalog construction slow-downs and inevitable multiple accidents on the interstates, much less report on the subsequent fender-benders caused by interminable lines at stoplights for those who opt for surface streets to avoid these messes. Why not give this topic the time it deserves? Say, 15 minutes? Perhaps these truncated time frames are why your traffic reporters talk so fast … and, consequently, why it’s so hard to follow where the commute-busting problems actually are. For example, there are so many “70s” in our landscape. There’s Interstate 70 of course, but also 76, 270 and C-470, as these motorways are popularly known. And because I usually need to travel an east-west then north-south route, I wait breathlessly for any mention of a road with “70” in the name. This information usually rushes past me, though, before I can decipher which of these routes is the least time-sucking. I also ask you to please consider the frequency of your traffic reports. Every 15 minutes is simply not often enough, much less on the half hour. Before I commit to turning right for I-25 or left for C-470, I’m practically begging for the latest info so that when I get to I-70, I’m in the correct turn lane … or, at least, I have time to blast across three lanes of traffic in front of everyone else still making their own decisions. Or, in the more likely circumstance that I’ve already embarked on the exact wrong

route yet again, I listen breathlessly for any updates, often flipping from station to station to station for advice. If I’m already 20-some mind-numbing minutes into a commute and waiting — in the car and on the road — I could literally weep with gratitude for guidance from those in the know about whether to bail at Santa Fe or try to make it all the way to Quebec. (Just a note: it’s not helpful to be warned to expect the “usual problems” because I don’t know where these usual problems usually are.) Sure, sometimes it’s fun to play along with quizzes and contests to while away the time. And to check my phone for the time (I’m not texting, truly) because I’ve long since stopped wearing a watch. Very infrequently, if I’ve remembered to toss it in my bag, I might even lean over to the rear-view mirror and pucker up for some lip gloss. But it’s impossible to handle both my essential travel mug of coffee and my stick shift as I herky-jerk through stop and go traffic. In short, dear Morning Show Hosts, please don’t be short with your traffic reports. I believe I’m not alone in my request; in fact, I can see out the window sitting here that I am far from alone. Andrea W. Doray is a writer who would prefer to bike to work, even though it’s a little harder to handle her coffee mug. Contact her at

On July Fourth, have a blast, without fireworks Once again, it looks like many of Colorado’s communities are headed toward a Fourth of July without fireworks. Last year, arguably Colorado’s worst ever for wildfires, saw a statewide burning ban that prohibited fireworks. Already this year, fires have scorched tens of thousands of acres throughout the state. No statewide ban has been put in place as of yet, but make no mistake, Colorado is in emergency mode. In many counties, officials have taken common-sense, precautionary measures and instituted burning rules that, among other things, outlaw personal use and professional displays of fireworks. Unless the skies open up immediately

our view and consistently, these bans are likely to remain in place at least through July Fourth. For many, that means, like last year, celebrating the holiday without one of our nation’s most treasured traditions. Yes, fireworks are fun. They have come to be seen as a sparkling, brilliant reminder of our independence. But much of Colorado is too dry, the conditions too ripe for danger, to risk it. We see this as a necessary inconve-

question of the week

Can the Rockies compete for the postseason with Tulo out? Most folks in downtown Golden were optimistic about the Rockies’ chances, in spite of the team’s slugging shortstop being out 4 to 6 weeks with a rib injury.

The only question is whether their pitching staff holds up. If so, they certainly have the horsepower. Bill Flynn

Yeah, I think so. Of course they’ll miss him, but they’re a pretty good hitting team top to bottom. Charlie Meyers

nience. Moreover, we encourage residents to be diligent in following whatever restrictions their county or municipality has imposed. A single, carelessly discarded cigarette has been known to start a major wildfire. Certainly, flaming objects designed to explode in the air have the potential to create at least as much havoc. Consider some statistics from the National Fire Protection Association: In 2011, fireworks caused an estimated 17,8000 reported fires, including 1,200 total structure fires, 400 vehicle fires and 16,300 outside and other fires. These fires resulted in an estimated eight reported civilian deaths, 40 civilian injuries and $32 million in direct property damage. In a normal year, more fires are

reported on July 4 than on any other day, and fireworks are the major culprit, according to the association. Imagine the potential for disaster if errant fireworks landed in a wooded area of Colorado. It’s not worth the risk for a few minutes of viewing pleasure. And if doing the right thing for Coloradans’ safety isn’t enough, consider the potential damage to a scofflaw’s wallet. In unincorporated Douglas County, for example, setting off fireworks comes with up to a $1,000 fine. We could make a case that fines should be even stiffer. Independence Day is rooted in major sacrifice. Eating hot dogs and enjoying the company of family and friends without fireworks is a rather small one.

The subtext of texting not a good read A little while ago, the family was on our way out — I don’t even remember where we were going — but we were waiting for one of my daughter’s friends to arrive, because she was riding with us. And minutes were passing, and we’re getting gradually more impatient, when finally my wife turns to my daughter and asks “where’s your friend?” To which we get in return “I don’t know, she’s not texting me back. “Well, have you called her?” “No.” And you could practically hear the follow-up, “As if ...” Like as in, “As if I would ever actually talk to one of my friends with this device which was originally designed exclusively to allow me to talk to everybody, at any time.” I’ve written before about how weird it is that the next generation is so constantly interconnected by their cell phones, but at the same time so disconnected in every other regard. But it turns out that that phenomenon of youth also has a troubling manifestation in adult life. My friend Jay is in sales, and has been for 20-some years. Business has been dicey for the last several years, but he’s keeping his head above water. One thing that we’ve talked about a lot in respect to his business is how impersonal it’s become. And he sees that as a very bad thing, from both a business and a cultural angle. People who he’s worked with for 20 years don’t have the time to say “hey” and catch up with how the family is doing; a salesman from 15 years ago who would look you in the eye and give you a handshake promise now sends you a text message with a vague statement of intent. The personal part of business has become completely subsumed by the need to keep up with the speed of technology, and things that used to work because of relationships don’t work anymore. Let me come at it this way: 50 years ago, investors had brokers who they knew by first name; brokers had relationships with companies; and companies valued that

chain of connections because it was the lifeblood of their company. Now, you or I can log in to e-Trade from our iPad while sitting on the couch in our pajamas, catch up on the stock market in a few minutes, and send instructions to the HAL 9000 on the other end of the ether, and go about our merry day. Nowhere in that is there any accountability to the investor from the company, who barely knows you exist, if at all. You wonder how a thing like Enron could happen? Because Ken Lay never had to look one of the “little people” in the eye and tell them he was in the process of bilking them out of their life savings. Personal relationships require accountability, and when business is managed by text message, there are no personal relationships. I like technology, and I think there are a lot of really wonderful aspects to it. But it seems like what it has actually done is replace conversations when it was intended to augment them. It’s made the messy part of relationships an arms-length away, where it’s safe and unaccountable. And that’s not good for anybody, whether it’s working out six-figure deals or just trying to get to dinner on time.

Colorado's system of empowering each county to set income eligibility limits for child care benefits is unique. As this map indicates, there are broad inequities even among neighboring counties.

Aid comes up short Funding model puts many in bind By Burt Hubbard I-News

The measures passed by Congress and signed by President Bill Clinton in 1996 “to end welfare as we know it” were heralded as a ticket to economic self-sufficiency. The poor would be encouraged to enter the workforce and eventually leave all welfare assistance behind. But for most of the tens of thousands of working poor families in Colorado, the vision of self-sufficiency is illusive. One of the most significant components of the work support programs — child-care assistance — doesn’t reach about threefourths of the state’s working poor and generally fails the other fourth’s attempt to escape poverty, according to an I-News analysis of state data, census figures and Colorado-specific research reports, as well as interviews with benefit recipients, policy experts and government officials. The I-News inquiry found: Working families can fall prey to the “cliff effect,” in which even a modest rise in family income can lead to termination of a government benefit, including subsidized child care, worth thousands of dollars a year. The family can suffer a big net loss by earning more. Colorado is the only state that allows counties to set income levels for eligibility for child-care assistance, or CCAP, the biggest work support program. The state’s system has created broad inequities in what families can earn before losing child care. Most experts say higher education is essential to rising out of poverty. Yet, 11 counties don’t give child-care help to parents attending college. A parent in Boulder County can get child-care subsidies to attend the University of Colorado, but a Larimer County parent gets no help to attend Colorado State University. Families facing the cliff effect report having employed strategies such as turning down raises, promotions or passing on better jobs to avoid losing an essential benefit. Proposed reforms center on phasing out payments gradually as family incomes rise toward self-sufficiency. Yet, when Colorado lawmakers twice tried to require counties to phase out child-care benefits, the proposals were watered down after lobbying by Colorado counties to make them voluntary. There are more than 63,000 working families in Colorado earning 130 percent of poverty-level income or less, about $25,000 per year, according to the I-News analysis.

In 2012, according to state figures, CCAP served about 31,000 of the almost 137,000 children in those families — “a pittance,” in the words of one state senator. “The reason the cliff effect matters, and the reason it matters to all of us in society, is that we want to provide the opportunity for these families to get into the workforce, to stay working, to reach self-sufficiency, to get ahead,” said Rich Jones, director of research at Bell Policy Center in Denver, a self-described progressive think tank. “That’s the whole design. By keeping the cliff effect, by keeping the barriers in place, we’re actually providing a disincentive to continue working.” For many poor working families who receive work supports, the cliff effect isn’t an issue. They don’t earn enough to trip the loss of benefits. The real threat of the cliff effect is to those close to self-sufficiency. “A fraction of these folks can actually make it work,” said Susan Roll, a California professor who did her doctoral thesis at the University of Denver on the cliff effect. “It is very difficult to be on these programs and it is certainly next to impossible to escape the programs.” The work support benefits can include child-care assistance, food stamps, housing assistance, assistance with energy bills and Medicaid, among others. The steepest cliff in the state is posed by the child-care assistance program, experts say. Even a raise of $1 hour per hour, which would translate into roughly $2,000 a year for a full-time employee, could trigger the termination of the benefit worth $6,000 or $8,000 per year or more to the family, and might even impact the parent’s ability to work. “I would say the cliff effect is the No. 1 reason preventing women and their families from achieving self-sufficiency,” said Lorena Garcia, executive director of Denver-based COLOR, which works with young women trying to escape poverty. Academic researchers and county social workers all said they have seen families forgo raises or promotions so they didn’t lose child-care benefits. “It’s frustrating to hear their stories,” said Tamara Schmidt, supervisor of the child-care assistance program in Larimer County. “To have them calling in tears because they’re over income by 10 cents (an hour). I mean, there’s really not a whole lot of wiggle room.” Self-sufficiency is pegged by most studies at about 225 percent of the federal pov-

erty guideline, or about $44,000 annually for a family of three. That number comes particularly into play in Colorado’s county system for setting income limits for childcare assistance. The limit for a family of three ranges from $25,000, or 130 percent of poverty, to $44,000, 225 percent of poverty. And these vast disparities exist next door to each other. For example, in southeastern Colorado, Prowers County cuts off child care at $25,000 for a three-person family, while adjacent Bent and Kiowa counties allow up to $44,000. A 2008 state audit found that more than 1,000 families denied child-care assistance because their incomes were too high would have qualified in a neighboring county. Higher education is another touchstone in the debate over Colorado’s county system. “Post-secondary education, espe-

and drug addictions as she became a bartender, a stint in jail. But her story doesn’t stop there. With determination and hard work, with help from those Jeffries who believe in her, with an unfading desire to be something more for her own four children, she has pulled her life back on course. She’s carrying a shiny

3.97 grade point average at Metropolitan State University of Denver, with graduation set for next spring. Her 19-year-old son has made that possible in part by caring at home for her 4-year-old twins. She wants him to have a chance at education next. Jeffries has worked for Metro’s Institute for Women’s Studies and Services, and is now an intern at Project

cially for single-parent households, is critical as far as financial security, social mobility, all of those things,” said state Sen. John Kefalas, D-Fort Collins. That Larimer County doesn’t allow higher education as an eligible activity ultimately comes down to a matter of resources, officials said. “We had to make the choice to serve the poorest of the poor,” said Laura Sartor of Larimer County Human Services. “It was very difficult. It was a very hard choice to make. We did a lot of research and a lot of statistics in determining who we could and couldn’t serve. And unfortunately the student population was one of the populations that were an option, so we had to eliminate them and not be able to cover child care anymore.” Many counties change eligibility levels as budgets and caseloads rise and fall. El Paso County Commissioner Sallie Clark, a Republican, said it’s critical that these decisions be made at the close-to-the-ground county level. El Paso recently raised its level to 150 percent of poverty, but allows recipients, once approved, to stay with the program up to 165 percent.

Colorado Counties Inc., the lobbying organization for the state’s 64 counties, has twice lobbied against legislation requiring the counties to phase out child-care assistance to counter the cliff effect. Each time, the counties lobbied successfully to make the proposals voluntary. The 2012 bill called for a 10-county pilot project to test phasing out the benefit. So, far no county has volunteered. Clark said requiring counties to phase out the benefit would be too costly. But Kefalas, the Fort Collins Democrat, said there would be benefits in embracing reform. “In my opinion, if we make these investments up front, we’re going to save an awful lot of money for the taxpayer in terms of public assistance programs, in terms of dealing with the criminal justice system,and the research bears that out,” he said.

‘Cliff effect’ looms for an achiever with fresh degree Magna cum laude grad in ‘really scary’ situation


7305 Grandview Ave., Olde Town Arvada 720-898-3380

By Jim Trotter

Rachel Contizano, a Denver native, moved to New York and finished community college there with highest distinction. She was employed by an apparel manufacturer, living independently in New York City, just as she wanted. Then she went on maternity leave before Christmas in 2009 and was soon notified that her job had been eliminated. She applied for unemployment benefits and received them for the full 99 weeks allowed, her job search fruitless month after month. “I got up the courage that I needed to move back home,” she said of those dark days. “It was just getting too difficult to survive.” Surviving still wasn’t a picnic back in Colorado, although her family helped. As she began to apply for work support benefits for herself and her son, Kingston, to try to get back on her feet, she encountered what she described as a very difficult process with Denver Human Services. “I did everything I was supposed to do. I followed all the rules,” she said. “If I did what I was responsible for, then they were responsible to help me. And that wasn’t the case.” She determined that she needed to learn more about advocating for herself. Her eventual mastery of work support benefit rules led to her appointment to the Denver Welfare Reform Board. She was named a “Woman to Watch” by the League of Women Voters. She just graduated magna cum laude from the Colorado Women’s College at the University of Denver with a degree in business administration. Now 32, she wants a career in public policy to help oth-

Rachel Contizano, 32, works on a research paper in her apartment in Aurora recently. Contizano, a single mother who lost her job in 2009, has been receiving work support and public assistance while going to college. She recently graduated magna cum laude from Colorado Women’s College at the University of Denver. She has calculated she needs to earn about $43,000 to make up for the loss of food stamps, child care assistance for her 4-year-old son, Medicaid and rental subsidies she has been receiving. ers. She dreams of running for public office. But first there is a matter of finding a job. She has calculated she needs to earn about $43,000 to make up for the loss of food stamps, child care assistance for her son, now 4, Medicaid and rental subsidies she receives. Even for all of her accomplishments, avoiding the cliff effect is daunting. “It’s very hard to find a job in 30 days, something that is going to keep my head above water,” she said. “So that is something I’m really struggling with right now and that is really scary.” To learn more about the cliff effect go to

where I can help those who are like me, women in transition, women who feel that maybe they’re not worthy, or that they have no hope,” said Jeffries, 39. “I want to make a difference in people’s lives.” As she prepares for that day to arrive, making the long bus ride each day into Denver from her Section 8 apartment in Englewood, working low-wage jobs, volunteering, keeping up with her family life and her studies, she worries about how she will do it.

Can she possibly make, as a new college graduate, the $40,000 or more it will take for her family to minimally survive the loss of the work support benefits she receives — housing assistance, food stamps and Medicaid? “I’m terrified that once I graduate I won’t be self-sufficient,” she said, but there’s no turning back now. “What do I next? I want to be the hell off assistance.”

Double Diamond trains owners to train dogs Lakewood man teaches obedience through reinforcement, fun By Sara Van Cleve Randall Elbrecht began working with dogs when he was just a child. “I’d like to say I’ve been training all my life,” the Lakewood resident said. “As a little kid I used to sneak into people’s yards and play with their dogs. I’d jump into backyards with mastiffs, German shepherds, rottweilers and Dobermans that initially wanted to attack me as I’m walking down their fence, but eventually they learned I wasn’t a threat, and I’d come in and play with them.” Elbrecht began training dogs professionally about five years ago after he graduated from the National K-9 School for Dog Trainers in Columbus, Ohio. He founded Double Diamond Dog Training after moving to Colorado. “I’ve had various jobs before dog training, but I was never

Randall Elbrecht, certified dog trainer and founder of Double Diamond Dog Training, walks a group of dogs he trains, including two of his own, through Olde Town Arvada during a “Outward Bound with the Hounds” trip. Elbrecht helps owners learn how to train their dogs with basic and advanced obedience, for off-leash training and more. Photo by Sara Van Cleve quite as happy as when I was with my dogs,” he said. “It’s been the best decisions I’ve ever made.” Now Elbrecht works with dogs and their owners to correct behavioral issues, teach obedience and much more. One of the most common issues is the dog not knowing how to properly walk on a leash and pulling while on a leash, he said. “I mostly train the owners to train their own dogs,” he said. “It’s much better when the owners build the bond and work toward the goal of obedience themselves because then they earn the reward of their dogs learning.” Most dogs show progress within five or six sessions, El-

brecht said, but it’s the owner’s responsibility to maintain the work and work with their dog each day. “The real progress will happen over the course of the week,” he said. “I show the owners what to do in one session, and they follow up throughout the week doing the exact thing that we worked on.” Once the dog masters one skill, such as properly walking on a leash without pulling, Elbrecht can show the owner how to train the dog another skill — to sit on command, for example. “It is entirely on the owner to maintain the work,” he said. “A dog is an animal — it isn’t a computer or a machine. You can’t just take out the broken parts and replace them with the things you want. It’s consistency that really makes them obedient. That’s the key factor.” Elbrecht uses a combination of positive and negative reinforcement coupled with motivation; the balance is different for each dog, depending on the animal’s personality, he said. Positive reinforcement is praising the dog when it does a correct behavior and saying “No” when it performs an incorrect behavior. Motivation is in the form of making it fun for the dog, like a game of Simon Says, Elbrecht said. “Once it becomes fun for them, they’re interested in it and they’re happy do to the obedience,” he said. “Every dog is different, and every dog’s approach is going to be different.” Double Diamond Dog Training also offers a program called “Outward Bound with the Hounds” to clients whose dogs have reached an advanced level of obedience and are capable of walking for a long period and able to deal with multiple distractions. As part of the program, Elbrecht takes a group of dogs on hikes and walks to areas such as Olde Town Arvada, Red Rocks, Capitol Hill, Washington Park and the mountains. One of the dogs in the program, Blossom, was rescued from a breeder and had spent her whole life in a barn. Before Elbrecht began working with her about a year ago, she was so fearful that she was scared to walk out the front door, he said. “Now she’s one of the most excited dogs that I have in the group,” he said. “When she sees me, she starts grinning and she’s excited to go out. She’s shaking to get in the car and say hello to everyone in the car. Everyone loves it, but she really, really shows how much she likes it.” In-home obedience training sessions are about an hour per week and begin at $50 per session, depending on the owner’s location. Elbrecht works with owners throughout the metro area. For more information on Double Diamond Dog Training, visit or on Facebook at

REAL ESTATE AGENT SPOTLIGHT OF THE WEEK What is your specialty and what does that mean for the but don’t get the opportunity very often. Serena Billmayer people you work with? Seniors Real Estate Specialist Certified Real Estate IRA Specialist

I specialize in two areas: working with Real Estate IRAs, and working with seniors. I have experience and knowledge of the specific procedures to follow when utilizing an IRA for real estate purchases. I have a Seniors Real Estate Specialist designation, as well as personal experience working with seniors from moving my parents from their home in Kansas to a retirement community here in Denver. I believe it is important to not underestimate the sentimental value of a home nor the equity in it.

Your Castle Real Estate, Inc. Phone: 303-956-7940 Office: 303-962-4272 ext. 786 Serena Where were you born? A small town in Western Kansas: Collyer, KS, population about 150. How long have you lived in the area? 24 years (I moved to Colorado in 1988) What do you like most about it? The weather, the mountains, the people! (Not necessarily in that order!)

What is the most challenging part of what you do? Educating my clients is both challenging and rewarding. For instance, most people don’t know that you can purchase real estate with your IRA, and there are distinct advantages to diversifying your portfolio. Additionally, many people still do not realize it’s a seller’s mar market. However, the lending side is tough and getting tougher, so you have to have patience when it comes to get getting a transaction closed.

How long have you worked in Real Estate? 10 years

What do you most enjoy doing when you are not working? I’m actually a bit of a workaholic, but I do take time out to play softball, go to my husband’s hock hockey games, and take my dogs for walks. I also love to read, dance, and travel,

What is one tip you have for someone looking to sell a house? Do not hesitate; we are short of inventory in the Metro area, and if your home is priced right and staged well, it will sell quickly. What is one tip you have for someone looking to buy a house? Get preapproved; not just prequalified, but preapproved so you can put in a stronger offer. What is the most unusual thing you’ve encountered while working in Real Estate? When showing properties, I always ring the doorbell, and if no one responds, I unlock the door and walk in. I always shout out first to make sure no one is home. Unfortunately, that doesn’t always work. My clients and I have found people in bed, a man passed out on a couch, and one time a man who had just gotten out of the shower. You never know what you may find!

‘What we’re trying to do is help minimize the impact of the disease, trying to make them feel better for a longer period of time until we find that next magic bullet.’

By Jane reuter

Douglas County School Board Vice President Dan Gerken resigned the week of Jan. 7, and already has stepped down from his seat. He cited growing family and work obligations. Board President John Carson said the group will begin the process of finding his replacement during the Jan. 15 board meeting. Gerken was elected to the board in 2009, and his term was set to expire in November. He did not return calls for comment, Gerken but Carson said there is no mystery surrounding his resignation from the education reform-focused board. “We depend on people being willing to take a lot of time out of their lives and work and families to do this,” he said, noting board members invest at least 20 hours a month to the unpaid post. “Dan has served selflessly in that capacity for over three years now. I greatly appreciate what he’s done for our school district.” Carson said Gerken first approached him about resigning shortly after the new year. “I tried to talk him out of (resigning), but he made his decision,” he said. Though the board has often been criticized for its fast-paced reform efforts, Carson said he doesn’t believe that was a factor in Gerken’s resignation. “If you run for office, you have to be prepared for that,” he said. “Speaking for myself, the reason I got involved in public education was to make some changes in public education that I think have been needed for a long time. I know Dan felt that way as well.” In seven years on the board, Carson said this is the fourth vacancy filled by appointment. “It’s not an infrequent occurrence,” he said. The board has 60 days to fill the empty seat. Any candidate must live in Gerken’s district — District D — which extends from Castle Pines to the southeast corner of the county. Potential school board candidates must be at least 18 years of age, a 12-month resident and registered voter of the district, and have no direct or indirect interest in district contracts. All current school board members are registered Republicans, but the office is officially nonpartisan. “We’re just looking for people that are interested in improving public education, continuing to make our school district the best, and keep making it stronger,” Carson said. Gerken, a father of two, lives in Castle Pines with his wife, Gina. He is chairman and co-founder of Gerken Taxman Inter-

Golf writers doff caps to good deed

The Colorado Honor Band will open for the Endless Summer with The Denver Brass and Celtic Colorado on Saturday, Aug. 24, at 7:30 p.m. at the Arvada Outdoor Amphitheatre. Courtesy of Arvada Center

Spend summer at the Center Performers add spice to summer evenings By Clarke Reader


ummer at the Center means that the Arvada Center is in the swing of the season, bringing with it some of the best artistic performers in the state and country. Part of the Summer at the Center is the fifth annual CenterFest, which runs through Aug. 29 and the fourth annual Summer Stage Concert Series, both of which bring something new for the music lover. Shows in both series are at the Arvada Center’s outdoor amphitheater, 6901 Wadsworth Blvd. “CenterFest is a great collaboration between Scientific & Cultural Facilities District organizations that really allows us to show so much diverse work,” said René M. Atchison, Summer at the Center coordinator. “We provide the venue for these cultural groups to perform, and it helps them to reach a broader audience.” The performers in this year’s CenterFest are extremely diverse, and offer up a wide range of styles for patrons to select from. The Colorado Symphony will be performing, as will the Colorado Ballet, Hazel Miller, Ballet Nouveau and the Colorado Wind Ensemble. “To have an opportunity to see some of these performers outside in our amphitheater makes for a whole different experience,” said Melanie Mayner, publicist for the center. “We wanted to make sure to give patrons a different season, and a bit of a departure from what we’ve done before.” Some of the performers, like Colorado Symphony and Colorado Ballet, are repeat performers that have become audience favorites, while events like JazzFest and DanceFest are new. These festivals provide a chance for performers who wouldn’t be able to do a show on their own to work together. Mayner said that many of these groups wouldn’t normally play in Jefferson County but grants are offered for these opportunities.

“These shows are a also a chance WHAT: Summer at the Center for small WHERE: Arvada Center, 6901 groups to get Wadsworth Blvd., Arvada some exposure with a WHEN: CenterFest through larger crowd,” Aug. 29, Summer Stage ConAtchison said. cert Series through Sept. 14 “We know COST: $10 to $60 jazz is someINFORMATION: 720-898thing that 7200 or the city really loves, and so we’re able to get more people interested when we have artists performing together. Especially with someone as popular as Hazel Miller, we knows it’s going to be a big, really, really fun night.” While not specifically programmed for children, Atchison said that all the performances are family friendly, and children are encouraged to attend.

IF you go

The Summer Stage Concert Series is hosted by Nobody in Particular Presents, with sponsorship from radio station 97.3 KBCO. The season kicked off with a classic performance — an evening with Joan Baez on June 2 — and will feature some legends in different genres — John Hiatt (rock and roll), Robert Cray (blues) and Asleep at the Wheel (country). National groups who have become local favorites like Pink Martini, Toad the Wet Sprocket and Los Lonely Boys will also be performing. “Our amphitheater is fantastic, we’re very accessible and a short drive,” Mayner said. “These performances are just amazing in this venue.”

Cherry Hills Country Club General Manager Kevin Hood, who saved a man’s life earlier this year, recently received the Metropolitan Golf Writers Association’s Mary Bea Porter Award. The honor was bestowed at the MGWA’s 62nd national awards dinner June 18 in Tarrytown, N.Y. Hood was honored for saving the life of Cherry Hills member John Moore. Responding to a “code blue” call on Jan. 29, Hood administered CPR to the 87-year-old Moore, who had fallen and hit his head, causing his tongue to block his airway. Hood performed chest compressions and other life-saving measures. After a 10-day hospital stay, Moore recovered and returned to Cherry Hills to enjoy his club membership. Colorado Avid Golfer magazine first reported the news. The award is named for Mary Bea Porter, a former LPGA Tour pro who left the course in the middle of a qualifying round of the 1988 Samaritan Turquoise Classic in Phoenix to save a drowning 3-year-old boy at a home adjacent to a fairway. Hood, 52, is in his eighth year at Cherry Hills. He was a starting linebacker at the University of Colorado and former pro football player with the Denver Gold of the USFL.

Peak 7 Vodka a big hit

Denver’s own Peak 7 Vodka made a splash recently into the Colorado microspirits market. The seven-time distilled Peak 7, made at Mile High Distillery, comes onto the scene on the heels of a medalwinning performance at the 2013 Denver International Spirits Contest March 2 and 3. Twelve prominent spirits professionals judged the double-blind tasting, and Peak 7 Vodka was awarded a bronze for best vodka. “We are Colorado people who want to make a vodka that reflects the culture and vibrancy of Denver and the Rocky Mountains,” said Peak 7 co-founder Dave Collier. “We think Colorado’s the best place on earth you can live, and the best place on earth to make great vodka.” Peak 7 Vodka is currently available

Dancers from Fiesta Colorado will perform at the DanceFest along with other featured dancers June 27 at 7:30 p.m. at the amphitheater.

at Mondo Vino in Denver’s Highland neighborhood, and at Fort Collins eateries Austin’s American Grill, The Moot House and Enzio’s Italian Kitchen. “All things being equal, there are a lot of people who would rather buy locally made spirits,” Peak 7 co-founder Desi Lopez said. “We’re delivering that high-end quality that people have come to expect from some of the major European brands, but we’re doing it with vodka made right here in our home city.” For more about Peak 7 Vodka, go to

Vegan Pizza Day

Patxi’s Pizza (pronounced PAH-cheese) celebrates Vegan Pizza Day with vegan selections available on June 29.

University Blvd., Englewood, and 185 Steele St., Denver) feature a $2 Lagunitas’ IPA, a vegan beer. More information at www.patxispizza. com.

Help film society go digital

The Denver Film Society wants to step over the line. No, they don’t want to start showing triple-X movies. Rather “the line” represents the $150,000 fundraising goal to buy four new digital film projectors — as Hollywood transitions to an all-digital format — for the DFS’ Sie FilmCenter, The Ellie Caulkins (home of the Starz Denver

Film Festival) and Red Rocks for the Film on the Rocks summer series. The total amount needed is $300,000 for the projectors for the Sie Film Center and Red Rocks Amphitheatre. To spur cash donations, DFS honcho Britta “The Jesus” Erickson stars in a three-minute promotional video spoofing the John Turturro role in the 1998 cult film “The Big Lebowski” with supporting actors stand-up comedian Chuck Roy and Will Morris, a manager at the Sie FilmCenter. Erickson, complete with bowling shoes and a hairnet, licks the red bowling ball and bowls what looks like a guaranteed gutter ball, but the scene is cut before the ball reaches its destination. Meanwhile Roy and Morris drink beer, look on and hurl comments such as “you crossed the line!” That’s the whole idea. The DFS donation website — www. secure-the-future-of-the-denver-filmsociety?ref=live — will remain live through June 28. With eight days to go, more than $84,000 was pledged. If you donate a minimum of $25 and the DFS reaches its $150,000 goal, backers will be treated to a special screening of “The Big Lebowski” on July 31 at Red Rocks.

Question: I heard that hearing aids can now communicate with my c ell p hone an d T V. I s t his t rue? ~ R.B., Arvada

AnsweR: R.B. In one word - Yes! One of the latest trends in hearing aids is Connectivity. Connectivity is the capability of your hearing aids to receive a signal wirelessly directly from other items – such as the TV, phone or an auxiliary microphone. You might be wondering - Why would someone need such devices? Well – some listening situations can be more difficult for some than it is for others – even with the use of hearing aids. This is most likely due to the way the brain is processing. The TV can be difficult even with hearing devices because sound is traveling through the room and it reverberates off of other objects. This breaks down the integrity of the signal. The telephone can be problematic because often people with hearing devices will want to remove their devices or hold the phone away from ear to prevent the hearing device from whistling. This would create a poor sound quality and difficulty understanding the person on the other end of the call. Some situations can be difficult to communicate even one on one. For example, this can occur in the car when the speaker and listener cannot face each, which eliminates the

possibility of lip and facial expression reading.

Local laughs

Local jokester and Comedy Works regular Phil Palisoul snagged first place at the 2013 Great American Comedy Festival recently in Norfolk, Neb. Palisoul, a Denver native, beat out eight other professional comedians in the finals to take home the top trophy. The Great American Comedy Festival is a four-day event honoring Norfolk native Johnny Carson, the greatest talk-show host ever. The event features some of the best amateur and professional comedians from across the country. Ironically, Palisoul tried to get on the “Tonight Show with Johnny Carson” early in the Denver comedian’s career. “And when I wasn’t able to get on the show, I was really disappointed. So, to be able to come here and do this well in a festival for his name and honor is ... it’s overwhelming really,” Palisoul told Palisoul’s prize was $1,000. Read more about Palisoul’s victory at Winners were picked by a panel of comedy club managers who judged the comedians on material, audience reaction and poise. You can catch the Denver winner’s act at 7:30 p.m. July 9 during Comedy Night @ West Woods at West Woods Bar & Grill, 6655 Quaker St., Arvada. Tickets are available at (keyword: West Woods). Tickets are $12 and there is a two-drink minimum for those who do not have dinner at the restaurant before the show. The show is hosted by nationally touring comic Bob Meddles and is produced by Slap Happy Entertainment.

Lions downtown ... and in the bathtub I don’t want to alarm anyone, but there are lions running loose in Golden. They are all over the streets and even in the parking lots of some of the towns most prominent businesses. They may approach you, but just keep calm, smile and talk nicely to them, and I promise they won’t hurt you. I guess I should say “Lions” with a capital “L” because I’m talking about the Golden Lions Club members. You can spot them by their yellow vests, and right now they are out and about selling raffle tickets for the drawings they hold all day long in Lion’s Park on July 4. They get hundreds of prizes donated so you stand a great chance of winning something. This year’s grand prize is $1,000.00 in cash. The tickets are only $1 each, or a book of six for $5. The drawings will be held at various times from noon until 7 p.m. and you don’t need to be present to win. All of the proceeds go to the Lion’s Community Betterment Fund for public projects all over Golden. You can usually find a few guys from the club selling tickets at our local grocery stores and roaming around downtown. Lion’s Park is the place to be That’s right, Golden’s Fourth of July festivities are always some of the best around, and this year will be no exception. It all takes place in and around Lion’s Park at 10th and Maple streets. There will be free rides for the kiddies, bands, food and drink booths, and a really festive atmosphere. The day’s events start at noon and run until 10:30 p.m. Of course, there is the fireworks display, scheduled to start after dark at 9:30 p.m. Unfortunately, due to the outbreak of fires all along the front range, past years’ displays were postponed, and as similar conditions are happening again this year, keep an ear to the local news as the day

approaches to see if there are any fireworks cancellations. You can also call the city of Golden at 303-384-8000 or visit its website at to check for updates. These events are sponsored by the Golden Lion’s Club and the city of Golden. My Favorite Fourth of July It was back around 1980. I was playing all day with a band up at Heritage Square and of course, stayed for the fireworks. Meanwhile, back at my house I had a huge gentle giant of a St. Bernard dog named Christy who absolutely hated loud noises, especially fireworks. This was back in the days when people would be shooting off their own fireworks day and night for at least two weeks before the 4th arrived. So, being the conscientious dog owner that I am, I had left my back patio door open for her to be able to go in and out of the house all day. Well, that was a mistake. During the course of the day, she tore down the back fence, ran into downtown Golden and into a pizza shop where she laid down in the back of the place and refused to move. The shop owners were afraid of her so they called 911. The policeman who came to retrieve her was a friend of mine and recognized her, so he just brought her back to my house and put her in the garage. He missed the fact that the back door to the

garage was open, so she just ran out of the yard again, this time around the corner and to the back door of a neighbor’s house who rented her basement to a Colorado School of Mines student. She tore open his screen door, went in and hunkered down in his bathtub. Well, this young student was up in the park drinking beer all day and returned home after the fireworks fairly inebriated. Of course, the first thing he had to do was hit the bathroom, and when he turned on the light, he took one look at Christy in the tub, ran out, slammed the door and called the police insisting that there was a lion in his bathtub. This was about the time that I got back home and found her missing. So, I headed out looking for her, turn the corner and see a couple of police cars with lights flashing and an officer holding my dog by the collar. So, I run up there to find four officers laughing hysterically, a now-sober college kid still shaking, and his landlord lady screaming at me about who was going to fix her screen door. My friend, the cop, filled me in on all the day’s events as I promised my neighbor that I would be back in the morning to get her door fixed. Christy was just happy that the fireworks were over. In those days our Golden Transcript published all the week’s police news, and in the next issue … there it was. “A report of a lion in a bathtub turned out to be a dog”. Yes, this is true, and yes you can look at some back issues to find it. See? I told you there were lions running loose in Golden.

ing from within. “It’s not a culture of top-down. It’s an evolutionary process,” Coors said. “We encourage our employees to improve, innovate, and then get out of their way.” In the case of waste reduction, it was a rank-and-file worker on the glass-packaging line of the MillerCoors Trenton, Ohio, brewery who has led the way. Kelly Harris, now a Sustainability Coordinator for MillerCoors, said he has been in the beer business for 22 years, but one day five years ago, while driving a forklift of trash, he had an idea. “I was dumping a load and noticed it all looked recyclable,” Harris said. Harris developed a business plan to make the Trenton brewery landfill-free in 60 months. His managers gave him the green light to proceed, and the plant achieved the goal in 23 months. “The largest challenge is the culture change, convincing people that virtually everything can be recycled,” Harris said. Using Harris’ plan, personal trash cans at the Golden brewery were replaced by a series of color-coded bins. Yellow is for alu-

the defense attorney asked why she also had sexual contact with Lopez on one occasion after the breakup. “I figured I was damaged goods and nobody was ever going to want me again,” Eckendorf answered. The defense also questioned points of Eckendorf’s testimony on the stand that differed from what she told detectives last year.

minum, gray for glass, and so on. “Red (trash) is no go, don’t put anything in there unless you have to,” Savastano said. Most of the red-bin material goes to energy-from-waste facilities. Shrink wrap, used on many of the materials brought into the brewery, was only recycled at a rate of one to two tons a year. Harris said that within the last year, the rate has increased to as much as 10 tons per month, and that the recycle-reimbursement rate is generous. The company installed a new cardboard bundler machine, to help ship used cardboard back to mills to be remade into new product packaging. Harris said the new bundler paid for itself within a year of installation. “When we started this, we thought it would cost money. But everything we try to do seems to make us money,” Harris said. Golden Mayor Marjorie Sloan praised MillerCoors for its accomplishment during a company press conference. “These efforts will have a direct impact on extending the life of our local landfill, while the rest of us catch up,” Sloan said. The Golden Brewery is the fifth MillerCoors facility to reach zero-landfill status. Harris said three more breweries are working toward that status. All the company’s North American facilities could be landfill free by 2015.

Lopez on tape

Also during the June 19 court proceedings, the jury had a chance to hear Lopez say, in his own words, what happened in the early morning hours of June 24, 2012, leading up to the death of Best. The prosecution showed the court the tape of an interview conducted by Lakewood Police Department detectives two days after Best’s death. In the interview, Lopez eventually confesses that he believes he accidentally strangled Best while the two were in bed. “I’ve been thinking about killing myself the last few days over that,” he told detectives. In the video, Lopez repeatedly insists that he never choked Best in anger and that he had no indication anything was amiss until he woke up the next day to find her cold and not breathing. The trial is scheduled to conclude this week.

pice’s two 2013 Camp Comfort sessions are June 28-30 and July 26-28. This award-winning bereavement camp, located in the Rocky Mountains just west of Denver, is a way for children ages 6-12 to explore their feelings of grief and share memories of their loved ones. Over a thousand children have attended Camp Comfort since its establishment in 1995. During this extraordinary weekend, children learn ways to cope with their grief through workshops led by licensed social workers and trained bereavement professionals. A volunteer “buddy” system (with no more than two children to one adult) ensures that children receive plenty of personal, one-on-one attention. And, while children are encouraged to share memories and express their grief, Camp Comfort offers fun, too. The daily itinerary includes plenty of opportunities for recreation including swimming, horseback riding, arts and crafts, fishing, and hiking. The cost to attend Camp Comfort, including all workshops, recreation, meals, snacks, and overnight accommodations, is $150. Scholarships are available based on financial need.

Fancy materials aren’t required. It takes a little adultchildren time, conversation, and something common — rocks for instance. Look around the neighborhood for rocks children think are beautiful. Take along some small plastic bags, magnifying glasses, pencil and paper. Place rocks in bags with a paper telling where it was found until it goes in the case. Visit a gravel road, rocky beach, rock or mineral show. Count rocks. Make geometric designs. Organize the chosen few into a collection. Craft stores have inexpensive plastic divided containers for beads that are perfect storage, but any small box that can be divided with cardboard sections will work. How are these rocks going to be sorted and organized — by color, hardness, shape, or where found? Is your family going on a trip? Children may pick up a small rock at important stops and dictate a sentence about where they found the rock, its description, and take a picture. The location can be part of a key to be taped on the bottom of the collection case. Check out a few children’s rock and mineral books to learn the basics. Search on line for “fun with rocks for kids.” There are images, videos, and information about the three types of rocks: igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic. Many museums have rock collection displays and books to identify local rocks. Young children may be most interested in color, shine, and the texture of rocks. (Make sure they and siblings won’t put rocks in their mouths.) Their collection could be organized by those categories and reorganized as they grow older and want to learn more.

Rock cairns and throwing

Children love to throw and skip stones in the water. Help them look for thin flat rocks and show them how to flick their wrists to have rocks hit the water on the flat side. On land adults can pick a target to hit. Making stone balancing piles brings in engineering. Scouts use certain rock piles for warnings and trail markings. Inuits and other Native people make “inuksyk” to symbolize protection, memorials, and holy messages. How high can the cairn be? How can the rocks be piled large to small, small to large, or mixed up? Can they make a little bridge or window? Cairns can decorate gardens and shorelines. Children can paint them and adults can varnish them to stay shiny in gardens. Children can decorate pet rocks with wiggly eyes. They can make rock families and animals by painting and gluing rocks together. Sometimes rocks are just for looking at and touching.

Golden Transcript 26 June 27, 2013

Legacy Ridge’s signature hole, the par 3 No. 9, is a challenge due to the water on the right side of the green. Photos by Daniel Williams

Don’t miss out on Legacy Ridge Golf Course Westminster municipal facility is big on value By Daniel Williams WESTMINSTER — Westminster has one of Colorado golf’s best kept secrets. Actually, it’s a disservice to call Legacy Ridge golf course a secret. If you have never played the course, near Sheridan Boulevard and 104th Avenue about 20 minutes from downtown Denver, once you do you will certainly feel like you have been missing out. Legacy Ridge offers a golf experience that might feel like a $125 round of golf for less than half of the price. Whether you’re a long ball hitter or prefer going short from the red tees, Legacy Ridge is not only a course that is full of challenges, but features views that would impress Ansel Adams. In addition, near perfect course conditions and a warm and inviting staff have made Legacy Ridge one of the popular destinations in the metro area. “For a municipal course we are definitely upscale,” Legacy Ridge assistant professional Mark Roush said. “Our course is always in beautiful shape but that is because we have great people who maintain the course.” Opened in 1994, this Arthur Hills design measures 7,157 yards from the championship tees, shrinking to 5,315 yards from the red tees. This Colorado-style Scottish links lay out targets players of all levels with four tee boxes on every hole, wide fairways, generous landing areas and greens that average more than 6,000 square feet. The course’s signature hole is No. 9, a par 4 that is 417 yards from the tips but only 279 yards from the white tees. That means big hitters have to contemplate if they want to attempt to drive the green, hoping to catch the downhill

slope and let their ball roll up to the hole. However, pushing the ball even a little bit too far to the right can mean landing in the pond that runs along the west side of the green. Some take the chance, drive the green and putt for eagle. “You can play the course as long or as short as you want it but either way presents challenges. But there are also some birdies out there and scoring opportunities,” said Tom Harper, a regular at Legacy Ridge. With quite a few golf courses in Legacy Ridge’s area, competition for patrons can be tough for some courses. But not Legacy Ridge. The course has turned into a destination golf courses and beside hosting numerous events they also have also compiled trophy case full of awards. “There are not a lot of golf experiences out there like the one we provide at Legacy Ridge, at least not for under $100,” Roush said.
