Bear Creek Lake Park in running for grant Program requires votes of residents By Clarke Reader
Lakewood Police, West Metro Fire and Rescue, RTD and St. Anthony’s Hospital took part in an annual emergency-operations-training field exercise June 19.

public shares visions for downtown Next step to create document on proposed changes By Clarke Reader
firstname.lastname@example.org The plan for redefining downtown Lakewood is coming together, and the city hosted the last open house June 18 about the project. The city’s Downtown Lakewood Connectivity and Urban Design Plan aims to not only better provide connectivity in the area, but also implement design standards to make it feel like a more unified downtown. “We’ve established these goals for downtown like creating better connectivity and making sure people can find their way around downtown, now we’re synthesizing everything together,” said Mark Kopatz, of Stanley Consultants, which has been helping the city with urban design elements. “We’ve gotten some really great comments

Lakewood’s Bear Creek Lake Park could receive up to $100,000 in grants from Coca Cola’s “Take it to the Park” program, but needs help from residents to win. Residents can vote daily at www. coke.com/parks for Bear Creek Lake Park (BCLP) until July 15. According to Maria Ashley, public affairs and communications manager with Coke, the “Take it to the Park” program is part of the fourth annual America is your Park campaign, which emphasizes becoming active and healthy. Allison Scheck, marketing and community relations administrator with the city of Lakewood, said the city found out about the competition through a parks and recreation publication. Since BCLP is the city’s highest attended park — with about 415,000 visits a year — she said it seemed like the natural choice to enter into the running. “We wanted to do an awareness campaign to really get the word out to the community about this,” she said. “Not only does first place win $100,000, second place wins $50,000 and third place wins $25,000.” In addition to being able to vote on the Coke website, people can vote by checking in at the park on Foursquare, and by logging at least 20 minutes of physical activity at the park on MapMyFitness. According to Ashley, more than 16,000 parks from around the country participated in the grant program last year.
Jefferson County commissioners oppose pot businesses Commercial operations barred until 2015 By Glenn Wallace
email@example.com 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 fa-
cilities, 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.

Theater for teens The Edge starts new program to encourage teen playwrights By Clarke Reader
firstname.lastname@example.org The Edge Theatre is looking to foster the next generation of theater lovers and is getting started with its TeenEdge playwriting program. Running from June 28 through July 11, the program will introduce teens to elements of dramatic writing. “We wanted to focus on teenagers because we believe they can really learn a lot from the kind of work we do here,” said Rick Yaconis, executive producer and artistic director of The Edge. The class will be taught by actor Chuck Novatka, who taught a similar class in New York City. Yaconis said he found Novatka’s curriculum really exciting, which is why he wanted him to teach the class. “I want to give students a voice in a place where they feel safe to share that voice,” Novatka said. “It’s geared to all sorts
of personalities and skill levels.” Using a curriculum inspired by Aristotle’s “Poetics,” Novatka will guide students through a series of written and improvisational exercises to develop ideas, characters, themes and dialogue. At the end of the class, all the students will have written a 7-to-10 page, two-character play, and all the plays will be professionally staged at the Edge, according to Novatka. The plays will produced and acted by the students in the class, giving them a taste of what it’s like to put a play on as well. “It’s not just writing, it’s also acting and learning what’s going on behind the scenes,” he said. “With all these areas, they’ll get to learn about ideas like themes and conflicts.” Novatka said that TeenEdge presents a unique chance to study the theater arts that many don’t get until college. For Yaconis and The Edge, this is just the start. “If this is successful, we’d like to add other classes like acting, directing and stage design,” he said. “We have always wanted to do education, and this is a great way to get started.” For more information on TeenEdge and The Edge, visit www.theeproject.com.

Volunteers needed for trail construction on Green Mountain
Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado (VOC) need about 200 volunteers for a trail construction project at Green Mountain on Saturday, June 29. The volunteer effort will focus on rerouting an eroding, steep section of
the Rooney Valley Trail in William Frederick Hayden Park, situated atop Green Mountain. “This volunteer effort will help connect a mid-level trail along the side of William Frederick Hayden Park, spreading the use of this heavilyused trail system,” said Erik Nilsen, natural resource specialist. “Volunteers make a lot of what we do possible. They account for more than 60 percent of the trail construction and maintenance at Lakewood’s Regional Parks.” No experience is necessary to volunteer. Registered volunteers will be treated to a light breakfast and lunch. The minimum age to participate is 14. Volunteers are asked to register in advance to ensure adequate quantities of tools, supplies, and food. Register online at www.voc.org/volunteer or by calling 303-715-1010.

Randall Elbrecht of Lakewood began working with dogs when he was just a child. “I’d like to say I’ve been training all my life,” Elbrecht 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 then founded Double Diamond Dog Training after moving to Colorado. “I’ve had various jobs before dog training, but I was never quite as happy then 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, Elbrecht 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 to sit on command, for ex-
ample. “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 where she spent her whole life in a barn breeding. 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.

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. D I like technology, and I think there are a lot of really wonderful aspects to it. But intim marr it seems like what it has actually done is W replace conversations when it was intended to augment them. It’s made the messy and w part of relationships an arms-length away, not a certa where it’s safe and unaccountable. me.

Breakups: It’s about accountability s
era of ew
he . r ith ase
or the t
Probably one of the most recognized, overused, and abused break-up lines of all time is, “It’s not you, it’s me.” For all of the Seinfeld fans out there, you will recall that in one episode Jason Alexander’s character, George Costanza, actually claimed that he invented this break-up maneuver when one of his love interests used the very same line on him when trying to end the relationship. And I know that many people still use this line or tactic to end relationships or let others down easy, or maybe both. I like the line for a different reason. Forgetting the overused and abused relationship and break-up analogy for a moment, how often have we used the very same line when deflecting blame for something we have done or have not done? Do we take accountability and own it, “It’s not you, it’s me?” Or do we reverse it
and place the problem squarely on someone else, “It’s not me, it’s you?” I much prefer the original version, “It’s not you, it’s me.” Personal accountability is the first rung on the ladder of success. And it is not just when something has gone horribly wrong or where there is an opportunity to place or accept blame, it is also true when given an opportunity. Strong leaders use this tactic all the
time. And they use it in a couple of ways, one to lead by example and the other to give a team member a chance to step up and demonstrate a competency or capability. In the example of leading by example or leading from the front, a good manager or leader may recognize that there is an opportunity for a teaching moment and they jump in and say, “Wait a minute, it’s not your turn yet, let me demonstrate this for you one more time, OK?” And conversely, the employee may feel that they are ready to demonstrate their readiness and capabilities and use the very same line, “I’ve got this boss, it’s not you, it’s my turn.” And so the strong leader allows his team member to try. This is another teaching moment, just moving from the “doing” of everything for everyone, to “giving” an opportunity to learn.
But even if we do reverse it, “It’s not me, it’s you,” this too can be used when a coach or leader calls upon an employee or team member to step up because they know that they are ready to give something a shot. “It’s not me this time, it’s you, it’s a big project but I am confident you can handle it.” Both situations allow for growth, ownership, success, and building a solid foundation to build upon. It’s only in times of blame or difficulties when we reverse the line and fall back on the comfortable crutch of “It’s not me, it’s you,” that we stifle growth in ourselves and others as we deflect ownership and accountability.

Don’t be short with morning 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
The psychological marriage, divorce Dear Neil: I’m married, but I’m not in an intimate relationship, and I’m not happily married, either. We lead almost entirely separate lives, and we sleep in separate bedrooms. I am not at all confident that she loves me; she certainly doesn’t act like she likes or loves me. We are married in name, but not in spirit. Is there anything I can do to change this problem? We are evangelical Christians, and we don’t believe in divorce. Unhappy in Florida Dear Unhappy: In every marriage there are actually three separate marriages: The marriage of the church (married in the eyes of God), the marriage of the state (your marriage certificate, which makes it legal in the eyes of the law) and the psychological marriage. For many people, the three marriages are not aligned. Some people psychologically marry way before they actually get legally married, and other people may psychologically divorce even though they remain married in the eyes of the church and the law. Of the three marriages, you determine which one is the most significant and valuable to you. People who remain married because they think that their marriage has been blessed by God tend to stay together — whether they love each other (and enjoy each other’s company) or not. People who stay together because their marriage has been sanctioned by the law are, on the whole, less committed to remain together when the going gets really tough. People who are psychologically married will fight with everything they’ve got to preserve the relationship and to avoid a divorce. They tend to feel more intense and more passionate toward each other than either of the others. If all three of these marriages are
aligned and connected, you are likely to be a very stable couple. But what happens when they’re not aligned? What happens, for instance, when one person acts as if they’ve psychologically divorced the other, but they in fact remain married — which is what you’ve described. So let me state the obvious: If one person psychologically divorces the other, the most important and most vital marriage is essentially over, even if you stay together. That means you might stay bonded in the eyes of God and the law, but your relationship ceases to be close and compelling, and the two of you will grow more distant, less affectionate, less intimate. If you are psychologically married, but you’re not confident your spouse is, make a serious attempt at addressing what has happened. Ask her what distanced her from you, and what she would need in order to consider coming back to you. Neil Rosenthal is a licensed marriage and family therapist in Westminster and Boulder, Colorado.

Police investigate RTD station stabbing By Clarke Reader
firstname.lastname@example.org Lakewood police are investigating a stabbing near the Lamar Light Rail Station that occurred shortly before 2 a.m. June 17. According to information released by the Lakewood Police Department, the victims — a husband and wife — were approached on the RTD platform by three male suspects who asked the couple for a cigarette.
The couple attempted to leave and were assaulted by the suspects. The male had been pepper sprayed, and the female had been stabbed in the upper-rear of her neck and shoulder area. The female was taken to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The three hispanic males are all described as around 17 to 18 years old and ranging in height and weight from 5 feet 6 inches to 5 feet 11 inches tall and 140 to 190 pounds.
The first suspect had dark hair and was last seen wearing a long-sleeved red shirt, dark pants and light-colored shoes. The second suspect had a black shirt, hoodie with short or rolled up sleeves, tan pants and a back pack. There is no clothing description for the third suspect. RTD surveillance cameras captured some images of the suspects. Anyone who may be able to identify the suspects should call Detective Bryan Feik at 303-987-7536.

Baseball and fireworks
The Board of County Commissioners for Jeffco approved two grants for the Sheriff’s Office earlier this month to help improve the county’s fire preparedness. One is a $30,000 grant from the Colorado State Forest Service for a fuel-mitigation program. The program supports fuel crews working to decrease the threat of wildfire in Jeffco by reducing hazardous fuels. The second grant was for $1,875, to support the purchase of five portable radios for the Sheriff’s Emergency Management Office. The grant funding came from the Colorado Department of Safety, Division of Fire Prevention and Control.
RTD is offering special weekday RockiesRide bus service to the Independence Day fireworks games July 3 and 4. The direct bus service will run to and from Coors Field and 11 Parkn-Ride locations in the metro area and Boulder High School. RockiesRide buses depart from the designated locations up to two hours prior to the game and drop off passengers outside of Coors Field at 22nd/Blake 30-60 minutes before the first pitch. Every RockiesRide bus is easily identified with the letter “R” and the route number (e.g. 5R) on the destination sign on the front. One-way fares range from $4 to $5,

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 @YourCastle.org 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-

Former girlfriend testifies against Lopez Murder trial focuses on history of choking By Glenn Wallace
firstname.lastname@example.org A former girlfriend of accused murderer Corey Anthony Lopez told the jury in testimony June 19 about several incidents during their relationship when he allegedly choked her. The 23-year-old Lakewood man faces first-degree murder charges in the death of 21-year-old Richelle Ann Best, whose death was attributed to strangulation. Lopez also faces attempted murder charges of his ex-girlfriend, Samantha Eckendorf, who specifically talked about an incident in 2008 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 did not, 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 car-
ried on a friendly relationship after their breakup in December 2010. In particular, the defense attorney asked why she also had sexual contact with Lopez after the breakup on one occasion. “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 courtroom testimony that differed from what she told detectives last year. Lopez In particular, on the stand Eckendorf said that she never actually saw Lopez being physically pulled off her by a friend during the 2008 incident. Instead, she admitted to losing consciousness and waking up with the friend by her side.
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 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 and found her cold and not breathing. Lopez’ trial is scheduled to conclude this week.

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 www.arvadacenter.org 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.

Question: I heard that hearing aids can now communicate with my cell phone and TV. Is this true? ~ 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.
Dr. Kirstie J.
Connectivity is affordable, simple and easy to use. It allows the person wearing the hearing devices to be able to listen and enjoy communication in all of the same environments as everyone else. Nearly all hearing aid manufacturers offer these types of solutions. So – if you are having trouble hearing in particular situations – even with hearing aids – come in and talk with me. I am sure we can find a simple and affordable solution to help. If you feel like your devices aren’t performing like they should and you would like a probe microphone test run, please contact Doctor’s Hearing Care at 303.377.4777. Mention this article and we will run the test on your current hearing devices at no charge. Dr. Kirstie J. Taylor is a Doctor of Audiology and has two practices – in Wheat Ridge and in Denver. If you have a question for Dr. Taylor, please write Doctor’s Hearing Care, 3352 Youngfield St. Ste. B, Wheat Ridge, CO, 80033, or email drtaylor@livingloudandclear. com.

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.

Shoppers at Belmar will get a sampling of local boutiques right in the plaza with the new Pop Shops at Belmar summer program. Only on weekends through September, Belmar is opening a vacant space in one store front adjacent to the Plaza at Belmar to an eclectic mix of local artisans, designers, stylists, crafts people, athletes and home experts.

“We had always been interested in doing something like this, because pop shops have started to show up everywhere,” said Mindi Mongeau-Cox, one of the three owners of Woodwork. “It’s great for small businesses like us because we don’t have to deal with the costs of actually owning the property, and it’s a great way to network with other businesses.” Mongeau-Cox said that everyone involved with Woodwork has a very creative eye, and have used their talents to put together a varied collection of items that will be on sale. “We’d been looking for a place to do this for a while, and the location is just great for us,” she said.

On display were maps and artists’ renderings of the urban design elements the city is considering, changes to crosswalks and traffic flow to make pedestrian travel easier, and wayfinding signs to direct people around the downtown area. “Making wayfinding easier for people is a key aspect of this project, and we’re looking at all kinds of different forms to help people navigate,” Kopatz said. He said that signage
helping people know they’re in downtown Lakewood would be going up, including a few signs in Belmar Park, which Kopatz likens to Central Park — a beautiful park right in the middle of an urban area. According to Beth Vogelsang, consulting project manager with OV Consulting, after the June 18 meeting, there will be one last meeting with the stakeholder groups, and then a document about how to implement the plans will be created. “We’re hoping to have the document done by late summer,” she said.

Don’t miss out on Legacy Ridge Golf Course Westminster municipal facility is big on value By Daniel Williams
firstname.lastname@example.org 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. The course is also currently offering a junior golf program ages 5 to 17. If you want to play Legacy Ridge they recommend that you book through the online system and create an account to expedite the booking process. By creating an account, you are then part of the “SPIRIT Club” which gains you access to the best discounts and specials for green fees, cart fees, merchandise, food/beverage offers, newsletters, text specials, tournaments, golf club demo days and upcoming events. Legacy Ridge is one of two Westminster municipal golf courses. The other is The Heritage Golf Course at Westmoor, another course with an outstanding reputation. The two courses offer individual golf passes where you can play unlimited golf at both courses. “Learn the Legacy,” is their slogan. So be prepared to get educated in a great golf experience.
Massive practice facilities make Legacy Ridge a must play for golfers looking to lower scores.

Hankins finishes third as Legacy golfers shine at summer tourney Four Lightning golfers rise to occasion at Saddle Rock GC By Daniel Williams
d w i l l i a m s @ o u rc o l o ra donews.com AURORA — Not skipping a beat from her strong junior year finish Legacy High School, golfer Sarah Hankins is at it again. The soon-to-be senior shot a near perfect career best 2 under par (70) Friday and a three-day score of 222 at the very challenging Saddle Rock Golf Course during the Colorado Women’s Golf Association Junior Stroke Play Championship. Hankins finished the tournament in third place after shooting rounds of 75, 77 and 70, finishing behind winner Kelly Moran and second place Jaylee Tait. Hankins round of 70 was one stroke better than her previous low round. Her third place finish is also her best at the prestigious summer event. The Legacy golfer opened the first two days of the tournament shooting a total of 8 over par, sliding down the leaderboard.
However, her spectacular score on Friday helped her leap frog everyone in the field besides the very strong golfing Moran and Tait. Hankins credited her play to her putter which she said bailed her out on numerous occasions throughout the tournament. In addition, Hankins holed-out an incredible approach shot on the 15th hole, making an eagle after dropping her ball in from 100 yards out. Hankins, who took third place during last season’s state tournament, said she is looking to take momentum from this tournament for the rest of the summer and into her senior season. Several other Legacy golfer participated in the tournament including Jennifer Hankins, Sarah’s sister. Jennifer finish tied for fifth in the first flight, shooting a 243. In addition, Legacy’s Morgan Stacks finished second in the third flight with a three-round total of 258, and Andrea Hoos was seventh in the third fight with a total score of 280.

Nicholson helped the club to incredible defensive success, ranking among national leaders in sacks, tackles-forloss and interceptions. He was a defensive backs assistant in 2012 and worked again with the linebackers in 2013. During his tenure at Houston, Nicholson helped three Houston defenders to the NFL, including D.J. Hayden (Oakland Raiders, first round, 2013), Sammy Brown (St. Louis Rams, undrafted free agent, 2012) and Phillip Steward (St. Louis Rams, undrafted free agent, 2013). The 2011 version of the Cougars posted a 13-1 record and won the Ticket City Bowl. Starting his career as a walk-on and progressing to a scholarship player, Nicholson starred for Houston from 2006-2010, racking up 179 total tackles, 14 tackles for loss, one sack and two interceptions, including one interception return for a touchdown, despite missing 20 games his final three seasons due to knee injuries.

WE SHARE THE AIR! Tobacco smoke hurts us all. Even if you don’t smoke, you can still be exposed and harmed by secondhand smoke in your home, at work, and in outdoor areas.

Coming to roost Lakewood’s first Chick-Fil-A opens By Clarke Reader
email@example.com Fans of Chick-Fil-A’s signature chicken sandwiches finally have a Lakewood location to visit to satisfy their cravings. The city’s first Chick-Fil-A location, 14730 W. Colfax Ave., opened Thursday, June 20, to crowds of hungry customers, including people who had camped out at the restaurant over night to win free Chick-FilA for a year. “This is the third opening Chick-Fil-A has had in three months, and Lakewood is one of the areas that we really saw as a growth area,” said Lydia Huerta, with CP Communications. “We listen to what customers want, and we really wanted to give people in the area a chance to try out or restaurant.” Ryan Smith, owner-operator of the location, has previously owned a Chick-Fil-A in Dallas, and was a manager for a store in South Carolina. “This location is the latest and greatest of what Chick-Fil-A has to offer,” he said. “We’ve got a larger dining area, that will seat
132 people, and have the newest kitchen design to make sure the freshest food gets out to the customer.” Smith described the new kitchen design as more streamlined and reminiscent of an assembly line, which gets orders out quickly to customers. He said the location has brought about 70 jobs with its opening. The special thing about a Chick-Fil-A opening is its offer to give the first 100 customers in line a year of free food. “Its our 10th anniversary of the ‘First 100’ program, and in that time we’ve given away more than $18 million in free food,” Smith said. “We get people who drive from all over the country to be at these openings to try to be the first group.” Smith said people started camping out in front of the restaurant at 6 p.m. on June 19, and there were games, a DJ and a celebratory atmosphere in the parking lot as people waited for the restaurant to open at 6 a.m. “We’re really excited about getting involved in the community, and creating that kind of passion here,” he said. “For me the important thing is to create memorable experiences for the visitors, and we do that with our food and customer service.”

eVolution of Libya Gaining its independence in the aftermath of World War II, Libya struggled for 42 years under the totalitarian regime of Muammar Qaddafi. Vast oil reserves created enormous wealth, much of which Qaddafi spent on paramilitary and terrorist groups throughout the world.

The civil war that resulted in Qaddafi’s death has positioned the country to write a new chapter in its history. Join Active Minds from 2:30-3:30 p.m. Tuesday, July 9, as we review the story of Libya and where it may head from here. Program is free and takes place at Atria Inn at Lakewood, 555 S.
