ASSET youths thank lawmakers State bill grants immigrants in-state tuition By Vic Vela
firstname.lastname@example.org Undocumented youths held events statewide on July 18 to send Colorado lawmakers one message: Thank you. Immigrant students held celebrations with state legislators to say thanks for their roles in the passage of a bill earlier this year that allows undocumented students in Colorado the ability to attend state colleges and universities at in-state tuition rates. Senate Bill 33 was signed into law by Gov. John Hickenlooper in April. The socalled ASSET bill — Advancing Students for a Stronger Economy Tomorrow — allows all students to pay in-state tuition rates, so long as they are high school graduates who have attended a Colorado school for at least three years. The bill finally passed the Legislature after several unsuccessful attempts over a 10-year period. Celebratory events were held in Aurora, Colorado Springs, Longmont, and at the Westminster campus of Front Range Community College, where state Rep. Cherilyn Peniston told attendees that getting the bill through the General Assembly this year was a top priority. “You don’t go down to the legislature to represent laws, you go to represent people,” Peniston said. “And that’s what this bill meant for me.” Hannah Brown, a coordinator of outPOSTAL ADDRESS

But on the day that Hickenlooper signed the bill into law, Front Range campuses saw “several students coming in, asking about how to enroll,” Brown said. “It’s really been a much more positive conversation with those students because
we can offer them much more opportunities than we have in the past,” Brown said. The law aims to help students like Sonia Gutierrez, who lives in Westminster. Gutierrez came to the U.S. from Mexico when she was two years old. She didn’t realize, until she was 16, that she was undocumented. “How do you explain that to a child?” Gutierrez said, who recalled her parents
More progress is being made with the city’s efforts to revitalize the southern portion of Thornton. Charter Stone Capital announced on July 9 that it has acquired and is redeveloping the former Albertsons’ grocery store at 88th Avenue and Washington Street. The company is converting the 38,000-square-foot building, which has been vacant since 2006, into a state-ofthe art charter high school, New America School. “We are extremely excited to embark on this redevelopment project which we believe will provide many benefits for local Thornton area residents,” said Michael Searls, president and chief investment officer of Charter Stone Capital. “The completed building will not only provide a beautiful, safe, and much needed permanent home for New America School’s Denver campus, but will also enhance the aesthetic of the local neighborhood and provide a catalyst for additional redevelopment throughout the surrounding community.” According to Chris Molison, the city’s development director, the redevelopment of the building has already sparked interest in the entire shopping area, approximately 19 acres. “It’s big enough to house a variety of uses,” he said. He added those uses could be office space, small retail and multifamily housing. “It wouldn’t surprise me if something takes off in the near future.” Workers have already started renovation of the building, and work should be finished by 2014. The gut renovation of the building will include both interior and exterior improvements. “The school will move into the building upon completion of the renovation this December over their holiday break,” said Stephanie Cusack with Charter Stone Capital. “The school will operate in another location for the first half of the 2013-14 school year.” Cusack said expected enrollment is more than 400 students. Molison said 400 students at that school could spark additional revenue for surrounding retail and restaurants. He said the redevelopment of the building would have both short- and long-term benefits to that neighborhood and the city as a whole. Charter Stone Capital is a real estate investment fund focused on the acquisition and development of education related real estate.

No far-off land for these missionaries 10:45 a.m. Bob, 65, sits on a low shady wall in the small quiet park sandwiched between the state Capitol and Civic Center in Denver. Headphones in one ear, he is listening to Rush Limbaugh, his belongings packed tightly into the bulging backpacks on either side of him. Along with a few other men perched farther down the wall or lounging under leafy trees, he is waiting. 11:10. The park is suddenly busy. Within minutes, a cluster of young men and women have set up white tents and tables upon which a buffet of food begins to appear. 11:45. A line has started to form as trays of chicken shish kebab are brought to the tables, now laden with bowls and trays of watermelon and fruits, potato and green bean salads, chocolate chip cookies, water, lemonade and other flavored drinks. “They give a good meal,” says Bob, eyes crinkling under a blue winter cap, the muffs pinned above his ears, three binder clips snapped on the brim. A sparse, black beard and mustache streaked with thick gray whiskers frame his tanned face. The food is good. But the conversation is better. “They’ll talk to you,” Bob says. “It’s pretty neat.”
They are young Catholic missionaries, who since Thanksgiving 2011 have turned the second Saturday of the month into Lunch in the Park for the homeless in downtown Denver. With help and donations from church volunteers around the metro area, they bring home-cooked meals to Lincoln Park, in the heat of summer and the cold of winter. But the real gift they bring is one many take for granted — someone to talk to, someone to listen, a human connection. “This lunch is wonderful,” Bill, 60, says in a soft voice as he sits on the grass, eating. “But that doesn’t even touch what they’ve done for me. ... I got a lot of my dignity back from them.” The missionaries of Christ in the City, a Catholic service organization that asks young people between 18 and 29 to
dedicate one semester to a year working with the poor and other marginalized segments of society, come from throughout the country. They hope to grow spiritually while ministering — mind, body and spirit — to those in need. They find connections to resources and mental health support, if needed. They provide food, sleeping bags, clothes. They talk about God, if asked. But more than anything, they offer friendship. Under a blue tent just across from the buffet, Kati Belsole places a statue of the Virgin Mary on a card table in preparation for the recitation of the rosary, which takes place before food is served. She is 23, from New York, with a degree in theology, and she talks passionately about her desire to share God’s mercy with the poor and homeless. But “part of our ministry is just that conversation element, showing people they have dignity and they’re worth it,” she says. “They’re worth it just because of the fact they’re a person.” She arranges a vase of red and white fabric roses next to the statue, along with a large crucifix and wooden rosaries she’ll hand to those in the park who want them. “We really want to know the person, their joys and their struggles,” Belsole says. “It’s a relational thing. We really try to remember people’s names and their stories.”
Bill will tell you his story is one of redemption. The missionaries found him on the 16th Street Mall nine months ago. He was drinking every day. “They would stop and talk to me.” A
slight man, he wears wire-rim glasses and a cap. “Without fail, if I was there, I would see them.” He pauses, takes a bite from his plate. “Well, I’ve had people make a little effort, but I’ve never had anyone come every day that I could count on.” Recently, Bill says, a car hit him as he was crossing a street. The collision put him in the hospital for three weeks. “They would come see me every day, pray for me. When I started getting better, they still came by.” Raised in the Catholic faith, Bill began talking about God. “They helped me get my life back spiritually, even physically.” He has not had a drink, he says, in five months. He is living at Samaritan House shelter, working toward a job and his own place. Early next month, he will see his sister from Indiana for the first time in 1½ years. “They’ll just take you on a human basis,” Bill says. “People who have been in the position I was in, we just don’t have many people who we can talk to on a normal level, whatever that might be. And they gave me confidence to talk to other people I normally wouldn’t have talked to.” He is quiet. “I don’t know how to put into words how thankful I am.”
Alex Lambis, 23, is a college graduate from Orlando with a degree in interpersonal communication. He spends two hours each day wandering the streets of Capitol Hill. He has come to know many of its homeless residents well. There’s Zachary, artistic and creative. And Art, tender and caring. Bernie is open and genuine. Jessica — loving, motherly. “I’ve had people ask me why I’m out there every day,” Alex says. “I say, `We’re just out here, to hang out with you guys and see how you’re doing.’ ... I think the constant presence makes a difference. It takes perseverance and constant effort and not giving up on people.” Alex has learned much about faith and human dignity from his friends on the street. He’s become more compassionate, he says. And “I’ve come to realize there is beauty that can be drawn in the middle of
suffering — even if the situation is bad and ugly, good can be drawn from it.” On this Saturday in the park, he sits down next to Jessica. A pretty mother of two, she is 32. She has carefully braided her hair and shadowed her eyes. She wears hoops in her ears and bracelets, a bright red sundress and pink fingernail polish. She is homeless, she says, because of a series of bad decisions. Her children are with her mother. Jessica savors the home-cooked meals. “They’re always made with love, and that’s what gets me.” She is grateful, too, for Alex and the others. “They pray with us, and we need all the prayers we can get,” she says. “They’re here for us, for me. Just being there and listening.” She glances at Alex, arms hooked around his legs, whose year in Denver is almost over. “He’ll be leaving soon,” she says. “And then I’ll have to start all over.”
1:15 p.m. Tables have been cleared and leftover food given away. Pockets of people remain, sitting on the ground or standing, missionaries and their street friends still deep in conversation. “The ‘64 Wildcat — the red one I was talking about?” a man with long, gray scraggly hair and beard says to his young listener. “That’s what it was called?” “I had to replace the windshield because it was cracked and I had to replace it with a clear windshield. I said, `Man, this windshield looks like my forehead!’” The two laugh. And the laughter lingers, its echo of a simple joyous moment a sweet reminder about the transforming power of human connection.

a liver was available. “It was a great moment in our lives,” said the 56-year-old. “I don’t know if there are words to explain how it feels to have a new chance at life.” On July 21, Pinkney and the surgeon who performed his nearly 9-hour surgery, Dr. Igal Kam of the University of Colorado Hospital, participated in the 14 annual Donor Alliance 5K run/ walk at Washington Park in Denver. “Each July, thousands who’ve been touched by the lifesaving gift of donation and transplantation gather to celebrate life at the Donor Dash,” said Sue Dunn, president and CEO of Donor Alliance. “Transplant recipients often walk in honor of their donors’ lives and in celebration of the miraculous gift they were given.

Scott Pinkney thought the odds were against him to receive a donated liver. After all, the Northglenn y’re man was in his 50s, and d there were many children who needed livers, he said. “I was thinking I was is pretty old, and I would be pretty lucky if I got one,” he nd said. Pinkney was diagnosed with Hepatitis C in 2006. For three years doctors tried to kill the virus by using er drug therapy, but that didn’t main,work. Then he was put on a liver-donor waiting list. eep He waited for two years. Aug. 19, 2011, proved to as be Pinkney’s lucky day. He and his wife were at home ng when they got the call that

According to Donor Alliance, 67 percent of Coloradans have registered to be organ, eye and tissue donors. “If you are a donor, you can find some solace in knowing the last thing you ever did was change someone’s life or give them a chance to live,” Pinkney said.

event so special.” Pinkney’s team for the walk/run was called The Unknown Donors, and it was to honor unanimous donors. “I don’t know who my donor is, and I wrote the family a letter telling them how I appreciative we are for the gift, but unfortunately the family has been upset by their loss and won’t receive letters,” he said. “I just want to tell them thank you.” Doctors were able to kill the virus in his body, which means that Pinkney’s new liver should last longer. Pinkney is an education consultant and has lived in Northglenn for 13 years with his wife, Shirley. They had two children, a daughter and a deceased son, and a 9-year-old grandson. Pinkney said his son died in 2009 and wasn’t able to see the day his dad got the liver transplant. However, his son had signed up as an organ donor and was able to donate his eyes.

Art on Parade kicks off 13th season Six sculptures vying for People’s Choice honor By Tammy Kranz

the city to purchase.” The art will be on exhibit until May 2014 at the park, which is across from City Hall, 11701 Community Center Drive. The winner of the “People’s Choice” award will be purchased by NAHF and gifted to the city for permanent placement. This is the 13th year of the program. “Art on Parade and the People’s Choice are an extraordinary way to enhance the beautification of Northglenn,” said Michael Stricker, the city’s cultural programs supervisor. “Adding sculpture to our parks, trails and roadways enhances the aesthetic qualities of Northglenn and increases the quality of life.” The 2012 Art on Parade People’s Choice sculpture was Bee My Honey, a bronze sculpture featuring a bear reaching toward a beehive in a tree, by Colette Pitcher from Greeley. NAHF purchased the sculpture for $16,800 and the city is still determining where to place it permanently. NAHF awards the winning artist $1,000 and buys the sculpture, using funds from the Scientific & Cultural Facilities District (SCFD), per capita funds from the city and private donations. Stricker said the city’s permanent collection is worth nearly $400,000. Stricker said the program received more than 50 art submissions from across the country this year. The selection committee is made up of citizens, park visitors, City Council members, Northglenn Arts and Humanities Foundation members and Metropolitan State University of Denver art students. “For the first time the final six sculptures are all from out of state,” Stricker said. “The artists’ residence is not a criteria in the se-

Kick off your Saturday shoes Anythink hosts National Dance Day event By Tammy Kranz
firstname.lastname@example.org Anythink has found another way to crush the stereotypical ideas of how a library should look and how patrons should act in them. Instead of telling visitors, “Shhh,” Anythink is asking them to dance. To celebrate National Dance Day, the library district is hosting a free group performance at 9:30 a.m. Saturday, July 27, at Anythink Wright Farms, 5877 E. 120th Ave. in Thornton. “It’s the fourth year of National Dance
Day, and we’ve been interested in doing this all along,” said Ronnie Storey-Ewoldt, public services director with Anythink Libraries. “Part of our aim is to foster a sense of community, for Anythink to provide experiences. And along with some of our internal staff programs and our community gardens, we like to encourage physical activity as a means to maintaining good health. That aligns with National Dance Day’s goal.” Broomfield Academy dance instructor Julie Cutright has choreographed a dance to the 3-minute, 17-second song, “We Got the World” by Iconic Pop. Storey-Ewoldt described the song as hip-hop/contemporary, bouncy and fun. “We asked Julie to make this accessible enough so that people who don’t think of
themselves as dancers — whether teens, kids, families, adults — all would be able to learn the dance in one session,” she said. Cutright said she was happy to be part of the event because she has dedicated her life to finding ways to share dance with others. She pointed out that every culture’s history is interlaced with dance because it is a universal language everyone can speak. “I believe that dance is a joyful eruption of the human spirit, a perfect synchronization of body, mind and spirit,” she said. “National Dance Day is an opportunity for dancers and non-dancers to experience this phenomenon together.” Anythink hosted two practice sessions this past weekend and will host another 5-5:45 p.m. today (Thursday, July 25) at
Anythink Huron Street, 9417 Huron St. in Thornton. Storey-Ewoldt said that even if people didn’t make it to a practice sessions, they can still participate. “We’ll run through it all together the morning of National Dance Day, as well,” she said. “And of course, everyone is welcome to come be part of the audience. You never know — you might be prompted to join in.” The performance will take place in the parking lot of the library. National Dance Day was created by Nigel Lythgoe, “So You Think You Can Dance” co-creator and Dizzy Feet Foundation copresident. It is a grassroots campaign to encourage healthy lifestyles and combat obesity through dance.
Thornton teacher views satellite launch in Florida Experience will help ignite classroom learning By Ashley Reimers
email@example.com STEM Launch teacher Robin Hockey had the opportunity of a lifetime, something she’s dreamed of since she was a little girl. The eighth-grade teacher had an up-close viewing of the launch of the U.S. Navy’s second Mobile User Objective System satellite while aboard the Atlas V rocket at Cape Canaveral U.S. Air Force Station in Florida. “Personally I was just so excited to see the launch,” she said. “I have never seen a launch before and this is something I have dreamed of since I was a kid.” Hockey is in the National Science Teachers Association’s New Science Teacher Academy Fellowship Program, which provided her the opportunity to spend two days, July 18-19, in Florida.
The program chooses science teachers to participate in a year-long professional development program to help promote quality science teaching, enhance teacher confidence and classroom excellence, and improve teacher content knowledge. Hockey’s fellowship program is sponsored by Lockheed Martin. “Lockheed Martin understands and values the importance of providing training and resources to teachers so they are better equipped to teach the next generation of scientists, engineers and mathematicians,” said Emily Simone, Lockheed Martin’s director of community relations. “We are proud to be a part of this program and excited to provide some realworld examples of science and engineering in action.” While in Florida, Hockey toured the Orion MultiPurpose Crew Vehicle Operation and Checkout Facility, and met with Lockheed Martin management and representatives of the U.S. Navy. She said the experience would allow her to bring
back first-hand knowledge of a spacecraft launch to her students. She said she’s excited to use the experience to come up with more ideas and ways to teach science and engineering content to her students. “Through this fellowship program I’ve been able to learn so many new skills and ideas for teaching that I’m so excited to implement in my classroom next year,” she said. “Being able to listen to engineers discuss their designs and how they work to make things better is something I look forward to telling my students.” As a teacher, Hockey strives to teach her students to be critical thinkers and problems solvers. She plans on teaching her students that even real-life engineers and scientists struggle to figure things out, just like students sometimes do in the classroom. “When students learn critical thinking skills, they can take that into the real world in whatever they choose to do,” she said. “They don’t have to be

Program digging deeper into public policy An additional in-depth view on a tough question is always valuable. That’s the result we are hoping for following the announcement last week of an economic measurement initiative backed by several regional entities and tasked to be conducted by the Business Research Division of the University of Colorado at Boulder’s Leeds School of Business. The school will run the program on behalf of main funding sponsors the Metro Denver Economic Development Corp., the Denver South Economic Development Partnership and the Common Sense Policy Roundtable. This econometric model developed by Regional Economic Models Inc., or REMI, promises to break out costs, benefits, positives and negatives of state issues in greater
our view detail for lawmakers, business leaders and in turn the public. The first project will take on Initiative 22 — expected to be on the ballot in November — which is a great choice. Gov. John Hickenlooper has already given an initial nod to Initiative 22, the type of tax measure that usually needs a push from the sitting governor to have a shot. The initiative asks voters to increase the state income tax rate from 4.63 to 5 percent for those making an income of $75,000 or

less and 5.9 percent for income above that amount. Under the measure, the Legislature has put forth a plan to infuse the state with about $950 million for education. We are starting to see many questions generated about what the real impacts will be and where the money will actually go. So we are very pleased to see this economic model launched in time for this momentous decision. Typically in coverage of these major measures, we come across various evaluations, but too often the information comes from parties with clear interests — in extremes that can extend from hardened opposition to increased taxes to open arms for all funding for education. Kevin McCasky, president and CEO at Jefferson County Economic Develop-
ment Corporation, is among those who welcomes the added analysis. He said that while the state does well breaking out the expenditures behind major policy changes, the full fiscal impacts are not as clear. In addition to producing more complete analysis, he said the econometric model will be neutral, not colored by political frameworks. We have been reminded that the econometric model is a tool, but at first look it appears to be a very good one. Our hope is that this new analysis offers a valuable breakout that covers key factors quickly and clearly in a way that cuts to the core of issues more quickly. Further we hope to see the process have an impact in the vetting process for public policy in formative stages.
Remember to serve Did you know that in the Concordance of my Bible, there are 20 entrances under the headings “servant/service/serve.” The T’ao te Ch’ing has been described as a “strategic treatise on servant leadership.” And in one translation of the Koran, the word “servant” appears 128 times. Service is such a central tenet of so many great religions and philosophies that it’s somewhat astonishing how little emphasis we put on it our culture. Notwithstanding the universal respect our military and police garner, the idea that a gifted student or charismatic young person should seek to put themselves into a position of service is practically anathema in this day and age. Sure, we call many people “public servants,” but how many of them actually serve anything other than their own reelection bids? “Ask not what your country can do for you” has, in 50 short years, become “ask how much your country can take away from someone else in order to give it to others.” We’ve all gotten used to hearing the voices of our public servants during the build up to an election, when they all need more money to buy advertising, but how many of us ever have one of our elected come down the block just to see how they can help or what needs to be done? Indeed, it’s so bad that the Minority Leader of the House of Representatives felt compelled a few months back to publicly complain that some of her staff had to take paycuts. This one elected official was complaining that some of the 18 taxpayerpaid staffers in her office — some of whom make six-figure salaries — were no longer making enough to buy lunch in the Capitol cafeteria. Got that, all of you hard-working commoners who take a brown bag lunch to work every day? Some staffers of a Congress-critter can’t afford to buy lunch every day. Now, aren’t you ashamed of yourself for not wanting to send more tax money
to Washington, D.C.? The political class long ago forgot that they are supposed to be serving the people — they’ve become an aristocracy unto themselves, completely isolated from the difficulties of most peoples’ daily lives. It’s no wonder that one wit quipped “Washington is 60 square miles surrounded by reality.” With our “leaders” treating their service with such contempt, is it any wonder that service has fallen out of the lexicon of virtues in the rest of the country? But we shouldn’t make the mistake of confining the idea of service to those who get paid to serve, for good or for ill. There is such value in having a “servant’s heart,” whether in uniform or not, that every organization lives and dies by the little acts of individuals that go unnoticed, unheralded and unrewarded. Whether it’s the guy who gets to the office 5 minutes early every morning to start the coffee, or the woman who gives up 10 minutes of lunch to straighten up the copy room, or the kid up the street who gets up 15 minutes early to make sure that the elderly couple’s sidewalk is shoveled after a snowstorm, serving others — just because — may be the most truly powerful act anybody can do. So, this week, try something: ask yourself “what can I do today to make somebody else’s day better?” You’ll be amazed at what you can accomplish!

Another birthday, hard to imagine Today as I write this column, I’m reflecting on my 81 years of life. Yes, I’m having my 81st birthday today. Lots of folks make having another birthday a big deal, but I don’t. Notice I said, “I don’t,” but my family does. They shower me with beautiful birthday cards, lunches and dinners, flowers and gift cards and lots of telephone greetings. I don’t know about you, but birthdays were not celebrated at all in the large family I grew up in. I remember only one time my mother saying, “Today is your birthday, Viola.” Sure we had lots of cake, but not one cake had birthday candles on it. That’s probably why, to this day, I could let the
day slip by. Of course my children always got birthday greetings, but we never went overboard. Because there were five children, each only got to have a party at ages 6 and 12.
Many times they chose to ignore the party and just hang out with friends. Bob’s mother loved birthdays, she always sent her card a month early so she wouldn’t forget it. Every year she sent $5.00 and every year I bought a new pair of white tennis shoes with the money. Maybe it was the time of year that made having a birthday party out of the question back in the day. July 20th was usually right in the middle of the harvest season and canning of the garden vegetables was also in full swing. Anyway, the children want me to have a birthday so I will sing happy birthday to me, enjoy all the hoopla and hope I stay in good health for another year. And if I can’t

Mayoral candidacy announcement Gene Wieneke announced his candidacy for the position of mayor for the City of Northglenn. He said during his last six years as a member of the City Council he strived to represent the residents of Ward 4 and protect the best interests of all residents. Prior to serving on the council he noted he worked on a charter amendment that is currently preventing the use of water/sewer funds for unrelated purposes. He said he wants to refocus the municipal corporation to provide the services residents requested at a more reasonable cost.
How to stay healthy at summer fairs The season of summer festivals is in full swing. Whether it’s the county fair or a music festival, vendors are dishing up food that’s often disastrous to healthy eating plans. Some of the unhealthiest fare at the fair is fried, included fried Snickers bars, deepfried butter, funnel cakes, and chocolatecovered bacon. With calorie counts ranging from 450 to 1,000, these popular festival foods can quickly sabotage your weight-loss efforts. Dena McDowell, M.S., R.D., nutritional expert for TOPS Club, Inc. (Take Off Pounds Sensibly), the nonprofit weight-loss support organization, along with The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, offers these ideas for controlling calories while still having fun at the fair.
If you are leaving for an all-day event, start your day with a healthy, protein-rich breakfast — for example, peanut butter on toast with fruit and yogurt. If you’re off to enjoy an evening concert, before you go, snack on vegetables, low-fat cheese, nuts, and fruit.
Get Your Exercise In
Why not wear a pedometer and challenge yourself, family, and friends to walk 10,000 steps (about five miles) while you’re at the fair? Increase your mileage by grabbing a map from the visitor center and heading to the sights at the opposite end of the grounds first.

Artists’ submissions sought for Senior Center art project
The Thornton Arts, Sciences and Humanities Council is looking for just the right artist and just the right outdoor art project to install at the Thornton Senior Center. The council has advertised for a Colo-
rado artist to create an exterior work of art at the center, 9471 Dorothy Blvd., with an approximate budget of $75,000. Artists have until Aug. 30 to submit their proposals, and the council’s decision is expected in October. The goal is to have the artwork installed by May 2014. Possible locations for the art piece include, but are not limited to, the patio and picnic area south of the front entrance, the landscaped area between the parking lot and Dorothy Boulevard at the front of the building, the rear entrance area either near the large patio, or an area closer to the rear parking lot that now has a bench and wood chips.

CELEBRATION Honor Roll
Ashley L. Cunningham, of Northglenn, was named to the 2013 spring semester provost’s honor roll at the University of Wyoming.
The provost’s honor roll recognizes undergraduates who have completed at least six but fewer than 12 hours, with a minimum 3.5 grade-point average for the semester.
Many larger fairs, festivals, and theme parks list vendors with healthier menus right on their websites, so you can check out your options before you go. Look for grilled meats and try substituting fresh or grilled vegetables for french fries. You’ll cut the calories and benefit from more fiber, vitamins, and minerals.
Limit high-calorie condiments like mayonnaise and dipping sauces or skip them altogether. If you can’t live without sauces, dressings, or mayo, ask vendors to serve them on the side, so you have more control over how much you eat.
Try sharing a favorite treat with a friend or family member to reduce calories, fat, and sodium intake and to keep portion sizes in check. An added benefit: you’ll save yourself a few dollars.

Limit Drinking Your Calories
Alcoholic beverages such as beer and wine coolers can add an extra 100 to 150 calories per serving. Other calorie-rich beverages include fresh-squeezed lemonade, fruit smoothies, and regular soda. Balance your consumption of sugary or alcoholic drinks with water, which will help you stay hydrated - especially on very hot afternoons.

Assumption Catholic Church announces 91st annual festival By Tammy Kranz
email@example.com When the aroma of sausage sandwiches, pizza frittas, Mexican food and roasted corn permeates the air around Welby, residents will know without looking on their calendars that it’s time for Assumption Catholic Church’s annual Bazaar. Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary Catholic Church in Welby will hold its bazaar 6-11 p.m. Friday, July 26, and Saturday, July 27; and 4-9 p.m. Sunday, July 28, at the church, 2361 E. 78th Ave. “The parishioners at Assumption Church have been putting on a bazaar for 91 years now, so they know a thing or two about how to do it right,” said Chris Frank, a fourth-generation parishioner. “Though it is called a bazaar because of the many booths with games, raffles and food, many of the old timers still call it a feast, which comes from the Italian ‘festa’ or holiday.” The church began more than 100 years ago as a small parish for the farmers of the area, and the bazaar was originally held in November when the parishioners had finished the farming season, Frank said. “The bazaar was held indoors at the school along with a spaghetti dinner,” he said. “When the parish grew too large to fit indoors, around 1960, they decided to move the date to the summer and hold it outdoors. The spaghetti dinner was ultimately sepa-
‘The main benefit of the bazaar is to celebrate the tradition and build community for a parish that is the cornerstone of Welby.’ Chris Frank, parishioner rated from the bazaar and is now held in the spring.” Frank said the event is the biggest fundraiser for the church and the pre-K-through-eighth-grade school. Annual attendance is about 5,000, with nearly 250 volunteers making it all happen. “The main benefit of the bazaar is to celebrate the tradition and build community for a parish that is the cornerstone of Welby,” Frank said. “Some of the families that run many of the booths have been doing it for generations, and they have it down to a science. It is also a time for people who have moved away to come back and catch up

IKEA does right thing

Getting lost in a
maze of fun
Adventure park at Heritage Square adds to area’s history By Clarke Reader
email@example.com Visiting Heritage Square is like taking a time machine into the past, but the thrills that Miner’s Maze Adventureland have brought to park has updated the fun and added a little excitement. The Miner’s Maze Adventureland is open at Heritage Square, 18301 W. Colfax Ave. E103 in Golden, Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. The Miner’s Maze has been at Heritage Square for four years, according to Jared Vasold, who created the park with Greg Gallavan. The two have another play area in Colorado Mills Mall called Buckaroos, and Gallavan owns Amaze N’ Mazes, which has built mazes all over the world, including in Spain and Jamaica. They also have mazes set up at Winter Park and Steamboat. “We’ve been in the fun industry for years, and are always looking for ways to expand what we’re doing here,” Vasold said. “Every year we’ve opened we’ve added at least one or two new things.”
This year the new additions include the Rocky Mountain Ropes — which is a two-story high ropes course consisting of 25 elements in a 72-by-35-foot airborne structure that hangs over the Miners Maze — and the Lazer Maze Challenge — where visitors navigate an indoor maze made of lasers. “We like active attractions, and my partner and I really value family time together,” Vasold said. “One of the best parts of the ropes course is that we can have people doing the maze while others attempt the ropes course above them.” For the ropes course, visitors are secured in a harness with a 10,000-pound capacity before beginning the course that follows a track leading from one challenge to the next — including swinging from multilevel swings; riding a skateboard across a tightrope, stepping across swaying discs, jumping across multilevel platforms and climbing over hanging barrels. In the Lazer Maze Challenge there are four play levels and 20 different laser segments that create easy, medium and

One of the classic rides that’s still around is the Rio Golden Railroad train ride, which takes passengers on a loop of the entire park. The train ride also gives passengers a chance to chat with engineer Rich Purcell, who has become something of an expert on Heritage Square’s history, and is eager to answer any questions about it. “I asked for a corner office with a view and they gave me four windows on an amazing view,” he said. “My favorite part about working here is the scenery and the kids.” For Purcell, Heritage Square hearkens back to a time when there was no admission fee to amusement parks, and families were just able to pay for the rides they wanted. “I feel like this is the last of the family parks,” he said. “These are the kinds of parks that I grew up with, and I’m proud that we really cater to families and kids.” Purcell said the renewed interest that Vasold and Miner’s Maze has brought to Heritage Square has really rejuvenated the area, which is part of Vasold’s goal. Vasold said that the attractions can also be used for team-building exercises, which is an area he would like to expand to next. For more information on Miner’s Maze Adventureland, call 303-278-4386 or visit www.minersmazeadventureland.com.
IKEA in Centennial donated nearly $60,000 of products in comfort kits for families forced out of their homes during Colorado’s Black Forest Fire in June. In all, 800 kits were created; 500 for adults and 300 for children. “There really wasn’t a question of if we’d do something to help our neighbors, it was a question of what we’d do,” said local marketing, PR, and community outreach manager Annie Boeckman. IKEA Centennial co-workers brainstormed product ideas to include in the kits. Each bag contained basic necessities focusing on eating, sleeping, and hygiene. “The products chosen for the bags were a team effort,” Boeckman said. “Our coworkers put themselves in the mindset of an evacuee and thought about what they’d need if they had to up and leave at a moment’s notice.” Each IKEA bag contained a pillow, blanket, towel, water bottle and utensils for eating and writing. The child kits also contained markers, paper and a soft toy to keep them entertained during a stressful situation. IKEA Centennial realized firsthand results of their efforts in an email from an IKEA visitor on July 2: “I want to thank you for the kind packages you sent to the Red Cross to help those in the Black Forest Fire! My sister lost everything, but had toys for her grandkids to play with because of your kindness.” It took just five days to pull more than 10,000 products, set up an assembly line on the store’s receiving dock and have co-workers assemble the bags. Many IKEA employees came in early or stayed late knowing time was of the essence for the evacuees. The New Jersey IKEA transport team, in charge of setting up trucks for product delivery to and from distribution centers, quickly contracted a 53-foot trailer to transport the bags to Colorado Springs. The kits were delivered to the American Red Cross Disaster Assistance Center on June 21 and distributed by Red Cross volunteers the following week.
Panzano chef competes
Elise Wiggins, executive chef of Panzano in Denver, will represent Colorado at the Great American Seafood Cook-Off in New Orleans on Aug. 3. One of the most prestigious culinary competitions in the United States, The Great American Seafood Cook Off emphasizes the importance of cooking with domestic and sustainable seafood. In New Orleans, Wiggins will compete against more than a dozen top seafood chefs from across the country for the title of “King” or “Queen” of American Seafood. The chefs will prepare dishes that showcase sustainable fish. Garrett Wiggins, Elise’s younger brother, will act as her sous chef at the event. Interestingly, Wiggins grew up in West Monroe, La., and moved to Colorado to pursue her cooking career. “I am thrilled to have the opportunity to return to Louisiana and represent Colorado at the Cook-Off in New Orleans,” said Wiggins, whose restaurant, Panzano, has a Four Diamond rating from AAA. “I look forward to meeting chefs from other states as we help spread the word about the importance of sustainability.” Wiggins didn’t disclose her recipe for Parker continues on Page 20

Earlier this year, organizers of The Great American Seafood CookOff encouraged states to hold a qualifying round or appoint a chef to compete in the event. There are currently 16 chefs registered representing such states as Alabama, Alaska, Mississippi, New Mexico and South Carolina. John Besh won the first The Great American Seafood Cook-Off in 2004 with a dish of pan-roasted Louisiana blackfish with corn, crab and caviar. The 2012 Cook-Off Crown went to Chef Gregory Gourdet of Departure Restaurant in Portland, Ore. Chef Gourdet prepared a dish of slow-cooked Oregon Chinook Salmon featuring butter clams, bacon dashi, porcini, roasted heirloom tomato and crispy sea greens. The 2013 Great American Seafood Cook Off will take place on Aug. 3 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans
during the Louisiana Foodservice Expo. NOAA’s National Marine Fisheries Service is the chief sponsor of the event. More information is available at www.GreatAmericanSeafoodCookoff. com. “I know it seems crazy for a chef from a landlocked state like Colorado to compete in a national seafood competition but I’m getting these great Kokanee salmon from Blue Mesa, caught by fishing guide Robby Richardson from Sport Fish Colorado. I can’t wait to get back to Louisiana and win this thing,” Wiggins added.

Gutierrez graduated in May, but said that the cost of attending school would have been a lot easier to handle had ASSET been around a few years ago. “I wasn’t going to let not having a Social Security number stop me,” she said. “But I couldn’t have paid out-of-state tuition for four years.” The ASSET bill received unanimous support from Democrats in the Legislature, as well as from six Republicans. “This is something that we did that will benefit people statewide,” said Rep.

RushFest comes to Thornton Youth soccer club holds annual camp in north area By Kate Ferraro
kferraro@ourcoloradonews. com Colorado Rush Soccer Club held its annual RushFest training camp July 15-21 at the Trail Winds Park and Open Space in Thornton. RushFest, a weeklong camp consisting of training, games
and coaches clinics, brought around 600 12-year-old girls and boys from all over the country. The organization has 30 clubs across America, including three affiliates in Colorado, one of which is in the north area. The camp was for the U12 age group since it’s the first step to the competitive level. Mike Nicol, Director of Operations for Rush Headquarters in Littleton, wanted the players to just gain a better understanding of Rush as a whole. “There’s a lot of things it can offer from playing, you have

the social aspect, you can meet other players,” the England native said. “We want them to have fun, and I think they did.” Nicol, who has been with the club for 18 months, said this was the first year RushFest was in Colorado and had the most players the camp has ever seen. The organization is looking to keep the camp in Colorado moving forward, as the inaugural team is from the mountain state. After five days of training camp, Rush brought in a U17 girls team and two international coaches, Laurent Papillon from France and Ivan Garcia, who played for Real Madrid, to assist the coaches clinic. “We try to bring in high level coaches to help our members learn a little differently on how the bigger level in Europe does it and get a better sense of how to coach.” The U17 girls’ team practiced some drills while Papillon and Garcia worked with them on technique and skill. The coaches stood on the outside and took in what Papillon and Garcia would say to the team. “We’re very lucky,” Rush coach Jair Vasquez said. “(Papillon’s) a very knowledged coach and he’s been all over the place in Europe and here in the United States working with different levels. It’s very important to us not only to watch him coach but to be all around the coaches that we have today.”
Rush coach Jair Vasquez, right, watches while Laurent Papillon, fourth from right, gives instructions to members of the U17 girls’ team. Vasquez, originally from Peru, has been coaching with Rush for the past three years. He is the director of junior division and coaches both the U14 boys and girls teams and the U16 boys. Vasquez said Papillon has a different style of coaching and
likes the way he interacts with the players. He said RushFest is important because the event brings all the teams together and gives them a chance to learn. “I think it’s important to get out of our bubble,” Vasquez said. “It’s great to get together and feel like we are part of a big family.”

firstname.lastname@example.org The Greg Mastriona Golf Courses Hyland Hills has gotten a makeover. The Westminster municipal that sits just blocks from U.S. Highway 36 and Sheridan Boulevard no longer looks like a municipal golf course, with its new clubhouse. “The new clubhouse is awesome but it is just a complement to our awesome courses,” Hyland Hills staff member Jake Quintana said. But while you may want to hang out and enjoy dinner or a cocktail on the patio that overlooks two tee boxes, it is the golf course that brings people to Hyland Hills. Host of the inaugural Colorado State Public Links Championship in 1965, the course (which opened in 1963) is the first 18-hole championship course in the northern metro area, according to information provided on the Hyland Hills website. Since then the course has gone through several different layout changes, and now Hyland Hills offers two different gold-hole experiences — the Gold Course and the Blue Course. The golf course was redesigned in 1985 by Frank Hummel, and the Gold Course was created. The redesign was so good that the course hosted the 1990 U.S. Women’s Public Links Championship. In addition, almost five decades later, the course hosted the 46th annual Colorado State Public Links Championship in 2010, the website further notes.

A father and son work on putting on Hyland Hills’ large and well groomed practice green. “Our course has a very rich history and tradition,” Hyland Hills director of operations Allen Brown said. “It is the perfect place to play for golfers of all ages and levels of play.” But don’t forget about the Blue Course. Now just nine holes, the Blue Course has gone from the original 18hole championship course to becoming one of the most played nine-hole courses in Colorado, hosting more than 40,000 rounds a year. And for those not quite ready for the championship course, Hyland Hills offers two different par 3 courses, as well as a massive putting and chipping green, where golfers can refine their skills. The perfectly manicured course, the views of the mountains that the course offers, combined with rates that can be best described as a bargain, make Hyland Hills a golf destination, not just a place to play golf. And
for the value golfers, the golf course has a twilight special after 2 p.m., offering 18 holes with a cart for $40. “There are a lot of golf courses around here that are really expensive to play. Here, you can play a course that is just as good as any of those courses at a great value,” Quintana said. Those whose golf game needs a little help can take advantage of Hyland Hills’ lesson options, ranging from a single lesson with multiple students to a package of five one-on-one lessons at a discounted price. Also, Hyland Hills also runs Adventure Golf and Raceway, a miniature golf and go-kart center for adults and kids, and adults who want to send their kids while they play the course. Hyland Hills has received numerous awards and accolades, including being called one of Golf Digest’s 100 courses to play in America.

Holy Family pair has strong family ties Legendary baseball coach now coaching up grandson By Daniel Williams

BROOMFIELD - The senior is getting help from the senior. Zachary Dedin, an upcoming senior at Holy Family High School and one of the best baseball players in the state, is getting some help this season from one of the best baseball coaches in the collegiate and Colorado prep history — his grandpa. Tom Dedin, the longtime coach at the University of Illinois and Regis High School, is retired but he hasn’t quite left the game completely. In retirement Dedin still teaches private baseball lessons and is a volunteer pitching coach at Holy Family. Who is his prize pupil? His grandson, of course. “It’s been a really fun opportunity to help his game grow. He is a really good young player with a lot of upside,” Tom said. Zachary just completed a season where he helped lead Holy Family to an unbelievable 3A baseball state championship over juggernaut Eaton. The younger Dedin hit .451 for the season with 31 RBI, which included multiple clutch hits through Holy Family’s state title run. He also pitches but didn’t last season because of an injury.
Zach credits his grandfather for not only his very productive swing but also for his love of the game. “He has been one of my coaches for as long as I can remember and he has helped me every step of the way. He is just a character — I love him,” Zachary said. “He is just grandpa to me.” But the older Dedin doesn’t take it easy on his grandson. Tom has coached 70 players who have all went on to play professionally, with six of those players making it all the way to the major leagues. He knows what it takes for his grandson to take his game to the next level. “He is a really good young player and he has a Division I type of bat,” Tom said. “But baseball doesn’t last forever so I also try to teach him the importance of his academics.” Zachary has big baseball dreams and one day envisions himself playing for the Colorado Rockies. But he also knows how hard he has to work to get to the “show.” “Only a very few percentage of people play in the pros. But if I don’t play in the pros my grandpa and Holy Family has helped prepare me for life and how to be a well-rounded individual,” Zachary said. The love they collectively share for the game fuels their bond that is so strong it could only be compared to a pitcher and a catcher. Like (grand) father like son.

Rockies on verge of playoffs ... with a little help It’s time for the Colorado Rockies to pony up. Somehow, someway, the Rockies are right in the mix to win their first-ever division title. Call it a weak division, call it a fluke, but you also have to right now call them contenders. That is because, despite their struggles with Troy Tulowitzki being out for over a month (Rockies went 8-16 while Tulo was hurt), Colorado (48-51) currently sits just 3.5 games behind the NL West first-place Arizona Diamondbacks (51-47). The Rockies, who some said would lose 100 games this year, have somehow put themselves in position to steal a division title. Now, as sad as it sounds, many Rockies diehards are waiting for the bottom to fall out and the Rockies to come crashing down. That’s because the Rockies’ ownership group is unwilling to pony up the dollars to acquire a much-needed starting pitcher who could not only keep the Rockies competitive the entire season, but maybe even find a way to win the division. While the L.A. Dodgers and Arizona Diamondbacks are willing to spend literally whatever it takes to make their teams better before the July 31 trade deadline, the Rockies are instead shopping at the thrift store, adding veteran arms Mitchell Boggs and Armando Galarraga. Several high-profile pitchers are all
rumored to be traded before the deadline; the Brewers’ Yovani Gallardo, Reds’ Mike Leake and White Sox Jake Peavy are just three upper-end, borderline aces who would not only come in and potentially win seven games the second half of this season, but would also help over the next couple seasons. And while those guys come with a hefty contract, it’s not like the Rockies don’t have deep pockets. Sunday’s game at Coors Field drew 43,108 fans, and even on weeknights, they draw more than 35,000 fans. While most other teams are in the business of winning World Series titles, the Rockies are historically in the business of making money. But it also takes money to make money. It’s time to for the Rockies to open up the wallet, make a splash and award their fans with a team that has a legitimate chance to win a championship.
