Assembly celebrates science, new digital textbooks By Ashley Reimers

areimers@ Whether it was an eruption of Diet Coke into the air caused by the mixture of Mentos, or the creation of an electric current, students in Thornton had a new outlook on science Sept. 5. “I used to not like science, but after the assembly I’m starting to like it,” said eighthgrade participant Justyce Meeks. “Being able to be a part of learning science in a physical way is really fun, instead of just listening to someone talk about it.” The STEM Launch school assembly was made possible by the Mortgridge Family Foundation and Discovery Education and featured interactive activities illustrating science concepts connected to everyday life. Lead by Discovery Education scientist Patti Duncan, students in grades 5-8 were entertained by the subject of science learn-

ing that science can be cool and exciting. Duncan stressed to students the importance of being making observations and asking questions in and out of the classroom. “To be good science students, you always have to be watching and asking questions,” she said. “You should be thinking about why something works, how something works and what it affects.” The assembly was a celebration of a new textbook program students are using this year made possible through funding from the Mortgridge Family Foundation. Instead of traditional paper textbooks, students are using Discovery Education’s digital science textbook series, which brings learning to life through audio, video, interactive text, digital simulations, virtual Textbooks continues on Page 2

Young man seeks to change Adams County age limit to serve on council resident dies of West Nile virus

Thornton resident behind 25 to 21 campaign

Thornton voters on Nov. 5 will be asked to lower the minimum age to qualify to serve as mayor or council member from 25 to 21. Seth Thomas, 21, is spearheading the campaign to get the measure passed. “I feel if you can serve your country at age 18, sometimes age 17 with parent permission, you should be able to run for elected office at age 21,” he said. “By allowing a change to our charter, we as the sixth largest city of the state are telling our community that it is OK to allow new fresh ideas to come forward to our council’s dais. I believe we need to do what it takes to move our city forward together, and give Thornton more opportunities.” Thomas said he wished he could have run for a spot on council at 18 so he could make policy change decisions that would help better the city. “I am not just doing this for myself,” he said about his 25 To 21 campaign. “I’m doing this to continue the positive change that

A 53-year-old Adams County died Aug. 27 from West Nile virus, reported the TriCounty Health Department last week. “This is the first confirmed death in the metro Denver area in 2013,” said Gary Sky, public information officer with Tri-County in an email. “The first Colorado West Nile virus death this year occurred in Weld County, on Aug. 25. As of Sept. 2, there have been 96 confirmed human cases of West Nile virus in Colorado.” West Nile is a disease that can cause encephalitis, a brain inflammation, paralysis and meningitis and is spread by mosquitoes. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, less than 1 percent of infected people develop serious, sometimes fatal, neurologic illness. Tom Butts, acting executive director of Tri-County said that mosquito activity will subside when the weather turns cold, but recent rains and hot weather have increased the number of breeding mosquitoes in the area. “West Nile virus is preventable by protecting yourself against mosquito bites,” he said. “By avoiding outdoor exposure when mosquitoes are active, wearing protective clothing, and applying insect repellent whenever you are outdoors — whether in the backwoods or in your own back yard. The vast majority of people who get West Nile virus are bitten by infected mosquitoes around their own home, not while on an outdoor adventure.” Tri-County Health Department offered the following tips for mosquito precaution: drain all standing water around the house to eliminate any mosquito-

ply during the Nov. 5 election. City Council approved the ballot question by an 8-0 vote during its Aug. 26 regular meeting. Mayor Pro Tem Susan Clyne, Ward III, was absent. According to a staff memo to council, the 0.5 percent sales and use tax generates approximately $1.9 million annually and is restricted to enhancing or increasing the city’s water supply. Money generated from this tax cannot go to repair or replace aging infrastructure.

Public should step up, foster state programs I sat in on the Aug. 13 Division of Parks & Wildlife Northeast Sportsmen’s Round Table, held at the Division Wildlife offices at 6060 Broadway. The Sportsmen’s Round Tables are designed to bring the hunting and fishing fraternity in to share information with state wildlife professionals. The State Wildlife areas open access for hunting and fishing; the Walk-In Areas in Eastern Colorado have expanded the access for upland bird hunting and the long standing state parks program is a very popular access program that thousands of families enjoy each year, and year-round. The state has stepped up to provide public access to land and waters previously inaccessible and the parks and wildlife staff has established and encouraged timely and open communications between the state and the sportsmen. What have

we done to foster and build on these state programs? Unfortunately maybe less than we should. The Aug. 13 Sportsmen’s Round Table public meeting which had broad press coverage drew only 13 people from the public as compared to eight Parks and Wildlife staffers present. Not all of the round table board members were present. There certainly was a

On Sept. 2, at about 12:45 p.m., officers with the Northglenn Police Department were dispatched to a burglary in progress in the 11400 block of Fowler Drive. Upon arrival, officers say Pinedo they were confronted by Pinedo who was armed with a knife. Officers ordered him to drop the knife. The suspect refused, charging the officers with the knife. One officer fired his weapon striking Pinedo at least twice. The suspect was transported to the Denver Health Medical Center for treatment. He is listed in serious but stable condition.

woeful lack of fishermen, hunters, hikers, bird watches and others with an outdoors interest. We are seeing a nationwide influence by those who oppose, and very successfully, the age-old role of hunting and fishing in wildlife management. A recent example occurred in Michigan where a national anti-hunting organization, well-funded, sent their people and bank roles into the state to circulate petitions and generate support for overturning a long standing dove hunting season. The sportsmen there laid back and wildlife support groups were less than serious and aggressive in countering the out of state national group of anti-hunting offensive. The election resulted in a majority of the Michigan citizens voting to repeal the long standing dove hunting season. Considering Michigan is known as one of the

If you “google” the Internet you will find an alarming number of similar successes by the anti-hunting and anti-fishing organizations slowing limiting or literally eliminating hunting and fishing opportunities. It is time sportsmen get involved, get informed and become activist for hunting and fishing. I wonder, isn’t it very possible that the estimated 5,000 plus people who attended the grand opening of Thornton’s Cabela’s store on Aug. 15 may want to be equally active and focused in supporting and protecting hunting and fishing in Colorado?

Four open seats, MAGNIFICENT TREE one contest Two incumbents decide against running for re-election By Tammy Kranz There is only one contested ward race in Thornton this Nov. 5 election. Janifer “Jan” Kulmann and Adam Matkowsky are vying for the open seat in Ward 4, which will be vacated by Randy Drennen, who is not running for re-election. This is Matkowsky and Kulmann’s first run for City Council. Matkowsky said he’s running because he is appreciative of the quality of life he and his family have enjoyed since moving to Thornton in 2006. “I am an advocate for clean and safe streets and will be easily accessible to the citizens I serve,” he said. Kulmann said her family has called Thornton home since 2007, and they chose the city because of the community and the opportunities it offered. “I want to keep that strong sense of family growing in Thornton by giving back to our community,” she said. Mayor Heidi Williams recommended the candidates get their messages across to the public. “I think voters should be looking for someone nonpartisan who is focused on the community,” she said. “Voters need to be educated on who they are voting for and do as much research as possible.” Two incumbents are up for re-election and neither race is contested. Mack Goodman and Val Vigil are running for their second terms for the Ward 1 and Ward 2 seats, respectively. Vigil said there are a lot of issues still ongoing that he would like to see completed, such as getting the FasTracks line up to Thornton, bringing water down from Weld County and revitalizing original Thornton. “Those three big issues are what probably made up my mind to run again,” he said. Vigil added he didn’t think a new person on council would have the background he did to help get those projects completed. Sam Nizam is running unopposed for the Ward 3 seat, which is being vacated by Lynne Fox, who is not running for a second term. Nizam has lived in Thornton with his family for 16 years and is the owner of Booze Barn Liquor, 12720 N. Colorado Blvd. in Thornton. “This community has grown close to my heart,” Nizam said. “My wife and I have

A retired Denver police officer who shot at Northglenn officers dispatched to his home last October was sentenced to 10 years in prison Sept. 5 in Adams County District Court. Alan McEwen pleaded guilty to first-degree assault on a police officer in the Oct. 18, 2012, incident. Northglenn police were dispatched to his home at 945 E. 108th Ave. in Northglenn on a potential suicide call after receiving a 911 call from McEwen. He told officers that he

McEwen apologized to officers during his sentencing hearing.

Burger joint makes first Colorado appearance By Ashley Reimers Hoping to bring the delicious simplicity of burger and fries to Colorado, Kyle and Bryan Messmer opened the very first MOOYAH Burgers, Fries & Shakes in the Rocky Mountain state. Opened on Sept. 2, the Westminster fast-casual dining restaurant is already satisfying burger lovers in the metro area. “Our first day was phenomenal. We had more people than expected and it’s been steady ever since,” Bryan said. “We just hope to continue to get our staff trained so they can provide the best service and continue to serve up great burgers.” MOOYAH was founded in 2007. Currently there are locations in Texas, where the franchise began, Alabama, Arkansas, California, Connecticut, Kansas, Montana, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Virginia, and now Colorado. Scott Adams, Colorado area developer for MOOYAH Burgers, said the

concept of the fast-casual restaurant is to provide made-to-order burgers with fresh ingredients paired with hand-cut French Fries and hand crafted ice cream shakes. He said the menu is simple, but it works successfully. “We do burgers, fries and shakes, we don’t do salads. We have a very simplified menu, but we do it well,” he said. “We are very family-centric as well and we felt like this concept was missing in the Colorado market.” MOOYAH Burgers does offer a turkey burger and a veggie burger. Whatever the choice, all burgers are served on buns baked in house. “It’s not often that a burger place bakes their own buns,” Bryan said. “MOOYAH Burgers is just a great place for people to come in and get a custom-made burger just the way they like it.” MOOYAH Burgers is in the Orchard Town Center at 14697 Delaware St. #875. Hours are 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. seven days a week.

New home, goals for Rocky Flats museum Olde Town site on mission to collect oral history By Clarke Reader The Rocky Flats Cold War Museum has a new location, new name and a new mission. Now operating under the name of the Rocky Flats Institute and Museum, it is now located in the Jehn Center at 5690 Webster St. in Olde Town Arvada. According to Connie Bogaard, the museum’s executive director, the move is a temporary one to help save money for a building of their own, which can be dedicated to exhibits and preserving the history of the

Rocky Flats plant. The museum is preparing to launch a capital campaign to raise money for a permanent site for the museum. The initial campaign will be for $2.5 million, and Bogaard said the museum has created a new website that makes donating easier, has created more fundraising options — including a mobile exhibit that could visit places like the Arvada Center and History Colorado Center — and partnerships to help raise money. “We will continue with our temporary exhibits here, and will keep working to collect oral histories from people who used to work at Rocky Flats,” Bogaard said. “That’s really the most important thing we’re trying to do here, because every story is unique and contribute’s to Rocky Flat’s history.”

This WALK is personal if... … you are living with Alzheimer's. … someone you loved died from this disease. … you care for someone with Alzheimer's.

The museum’s new mission — which is reflected in the name change — is to make the museum a place where people can come to put the work done at Rocky Flats, and the Cold War, in the proper global context, and discuss the modern nuclear situation. “We want to be able to engage in conversations about what it meant to live by Rocky Flats, the ideas proposed for the land and the toll road that would go nearby,” Bogaard said. “The plant is gone, but the issues around it are not.” While the capital campaign is launched, Bogaard is already planning the next exhibits for the museum. The newest will open in October, and will focus on the workers at Rocky Flats in the 1950s.

Helping out with the exhibit — and the museum as a whole — are former Rocky Flats employees Ken Freiberg, Jack Weaver and Gene McCracken, who meet every Wednesday at the museum. “We want to help educated older people and younger people, especially the younger people, many of whom have not even heard of Rocky Flats,” Freiberg said. “We want to try to tell both sides, but that can be difficult.” Freiberg added that people who worked at Rocky Flats help nearby cities, from Arvada to Westminster and Louisville, grow. McCracken said it’s important that people should not forget the Cold War and how it changed lives. For more information on the museum, visit

Push is on for marijuana taxes Capitol rally urges voters to approve 25 percent levy By Vic Vela Supporters of a retail marijuana tax initiative held a Capitol rally on Sept. 4, urging Colorado voters to back pot sales taxes to ensure that the newly created industry “pays its own way.” The rally served as a campaign kickoff for Proposition AA, which will ask voters to give the go-ahead for retail pot to be taxed at 25 percent this fall, with the revenue going toward school construction and support for industry regulation. Retail pot sales will soon become a reality in the state, thanks to last year’s voterbacked passage of Amendment 64. The Legislature passed pot regulations earlier this year, but voters still must decide whether they will support the taxes needed to fund retail marijuana rules. State Rep. Dan Pabon, D-Denver, who played a key role in crafting Amendment 64 legislation, said that unless voters back the pot taxes this fall, “we will have to do one of two things: Take money from education and other programs in Colorado to fund this industry, or we’ll have lackluster or lax enforcement,” “This campaign kickoff is to acknowledge and recognize to the people of Colorado that these taxes absolutely must pass,” Pabon said. Proposition AA will ask voters to approve a 15 percent excise tax and a 10 percent retail tax on marijuana sales.

State Sen. Pat Steadman, D-Denver, speaks on behalf of a marijuana tax ballot question at a Sept. 4 Capitol press conference. Photo by Vic Vela Revenue from the excise tax will go toward public school construction, while the money collected from the retail tax will back the regulations that were enacted by the Legislature. The 25 percent state tax does not include whatever local taxes might be imposed by individual municipalities. Brian Vicente, an architect of Amendment 64, said the taxes are expected to bring in about $70 million in revenue for the state. Vicente also reminded voters that only

pot-smokers will be required to cough up the tax money. “This is a tax that really would only apply to people who choose to participate in regulated marijuana,” Vicente said. “Those who do not purchase marijuana will not be subject to this tax.” Pot tax supporters were asked whether they had concerns that competing tax questions on this year’s ballot could affect the passage of Prop AA — such as Initiative 22, which will ask voters to support more than $900 million in new taxes to overhaul

the school finance system. “I think these issues will rise and fall on their own merits,” said state Sen. Pat Steadman, D-Denver. “I think our voters are discerning.” Steadman also said that voters who supported Amendment 64 last November knew that the pot industry would have to be taxed. Proposition AA supporters also said they were pleased with the federal government’s recent guidance on states that allow legalized pot. The Department of Justice issued a memo saying it would not seek to block recreational pot sales in states that allow it, so long as the retail pot industry abides by firm state regulations. State Rep. Jonathan Singer, D-Longmont, who sponsored the marijuana tax bill that led to Proposition AA, said the Legislature made “very responsible and very necessary first steps” in making sure the marijuana industry abides by a strict set of rules. Singer, who worked as a drug counselor at Colorado State University, said that he understands “the effects of drugs.” “I also understand the importance of having the funding available to make sure that our communities are safe and that we build better schools,” Singer said. “This is not just about making sure that we are protecting our communities, but making sure that marijuana pays its own way.” The package of Amendment 64 legislation received bipartisan support at the Capitol this year. However, no Republican lawmakers attended the rally. Pabon said his Republican colleagues are “on the record” with their support.

Blood and feathers at an Invesco Field crime scene Several major crimes occurred at Denver’s Invesco Field at Mile High on Sept. 5. Seriously, did anyone happen to get the license plate number of the Well-Oiled Orange Machine that ran over 12 members of the Baltimore Ravens defense last week? All I saw was the number 18 and the rest was just a blur — it all happened so fast. And did anyone get a good look at the 12 guys who mercilessly pummeled Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco for much of the game? Poor Joe never saw it coming, even the monster-sized version of Flacco that audaciously hung outside of Denver’s stadium. The Broncos-Ravens NFL opener was a beat-down of criminal proportions. For Denver, it was personal; an old-fashioned revenge-fueled hammering that made their fans forget all about January’s disastrous … OK, no need to bring all that up again. Seriously, though. The Broncos OrangeCrushed Baltimore. Threats of lightning

may have delayed the start of the game, but the Birds ended up leaving Denver thunderstruck. It was a Grateful Dead lyric in reverse: “If the lightning don’t get you, then the thunder will.” The Broncos pounded the defending Super Bowl champions behind Peyton Manning’s seven — yes, seven — touchdown passes. It’s a feat that hasn’t happened in real life since 1969 and it’s one that’s usually only seen these days with

game console controllers in hand. Oh, and that pounding noise you heard in the third quarter didn’t come from storm clouds; it was the sound of every fantasy football leaguer in the country galloping to their laptops, in hopes of adding tight end Julius Thomas to their rosters. And Denver’s defense played well without injured cornerback Champ Bailey and linebacker Von Miller, who is serving a six-game suspension. The Broncos sacked Flacco four times and picked him off twice, while holding him to a pedestrian 69 passer rating. The Denver “D” also held Ray Rice to just 36 yards on the ground. The clobbering of the Ravens helped fans to exorcise a heck of a lot of demons, Linda Blair-style. The demons stemmed from Denver’s historically abysmal record against Baltimore teams over the years, but they haunt Broncos fans primarily because of January’s playoff — OK, no need to bring

all that up again. I know, it was just one game. Manning isn’t going to throw seven TDs every week. And let’s not forget that the Denver defense looked pretty darn good for much of last year’s regular season — at least until … OK, no need to bring all that up again. But for now, let’s all just sit back and continue to bask in last week’s beat-down. And I won’t be lending any help with the criminal investigation into what happened at Invesco Field, where a murder of crows was annihilated. Oh, sure. I witnessed everything. But I won’t be feeling guilty for not stepping forward. “I didn’t see nothin’.” In addition to sports column writing, Vic Vela covers the Legislature for Colorado Community Media.

Finding clarity on pot a taxing process More than 10 months after Colorado voters approved the legalization of recreational marijuana use and sales, confusion reigns. Sure, passage of Amendment 64 last November made a few things clear: Possession of up to 1 ounce is legal. People under 21 years of age may not purchase pot. It remains illegal to smoke marijuana in public places. But a couple of the most basic questions still need to be answered: Where can one legally buy it? How much will it cost? The first question is being explored by Colorado’s cities and counties. At this point, few Denver-area municipalities have opted to make retail sales legal, instead taking a cautious, wait-and-see approach. Some — like unincorporated Jefferson County — have already decided to outright ban retail sales. It’s possible most of

our view Colorado could follow suit, leaving the state with a handful of “marijuana islands” where pot is legally sold. The cost question is largely in the hands of the state’s voters. On top of whatever price point the marijuana market dictates, there will be taxes, and in Colorado, that means voter approval is needed. A recent rally at the Capitol in Denver urged approval of a 15 percent excise tax and a 10 percent sales tax on the retail marijuana industry. If the state’s voters approve Proposition AA in November, money from the taxes would reportedly go toward

What are you looking forward to with the changing weather? On a sizzling hot Saturday, we went to the Westminster Promenade to ask some folks, now that the end of summer is in sight what are you looking forward to doing as the weather cools?

school construction and regulation of the marijuana industry. In general, we support approval of this proposition. It helps ensure the marijuana industry will pay for itself, and helps schools, to boot. But we do wonder if too many taxes could lead pot customers to turn back to the black market. The 25 percent statewide tax from Proposition AA would be in addition to whatever taxes local municipalities’ voters approve. Denver, for example, is asking residents to say yes to a 5 percent tax. The total tax toll of 30 percent could lead to an unaffordable product in what figures to be the state’s largest marijuana-selling zone. Having customers once again turn to the dealer down the street would be a clear example of the law of unintended consequences. But we feel taxes may be the only

way to keep the retail pot business from being a burden on Colorado, something the medical marijuana industry has been over the last few years. The state will have to bank on people’s willingness to pay the price for legality. Even after the issues of where to buy and how much it will cost are officially answered, there will remain plenty of gray areas. For example, many people are uncertain if they will get fired from their jobs if they partake. Others aren’t clear on how much they can smoke and still legally drive. Truth be told, it may take years — and more than a few legal challenges — before all the answers are in. But this November’s election and the actions of local governments in the months to follow should add important measures of clarity amid the lingering cloud of confusion.

Dealing with heartbreak What do you do once your heart breaks? And not the sort of heartbreak that Taylor Swift writes songs about every couple months. I’m talking about the sort of profound, existential heartbreak that makes you wonder if the human race is worth saving. What do you do with the story of Anthony? Anthony is a little boy stuck in Colorado’s foster care system. One week last summer, he went to Royal Family Kids Camp, a special camp up in the mountains for kids in the foster system, and he had a really good week. Until he came “home” and found out that his foster parents had given him up during that week and his next stop was a group home. What do you do with boys like James? Or was it Addison? I’m not sure I ever heard it right. Doesn’t matter — we eventually were calling him “Cinderella.” This is a young man, slightly older than my own son, who my family saw last weekend as we were having a great time at Adventure Golf and Raceway (which, by the way, is an exceptionally good family outing!). The problem of Cinderella, which became a problem for us, was that he was out “having a good time” with his mother and two older sisters, and he was the constant object of scorn and ridicule. We heard, on one occasion, mom say loud enough for everybody within 20 feet “are you a retard or something?” We also saw, later, the family sitting around a picnic table with four ice cream cones--one for each sister, and two for mom. Cinderella, understandably, looked miserable. What do you do with the pictures coming out of Syria? No, not the one CNN decided to run with that was actually from Iraq in 2003 (“major media” credibility, anyone?), but the ones that show the bodies lined up, side by side, mothers next to children, whole families, an entire suburb. 1,400 dead, the victims of a Sarin gas attack, possibly by their own government.

In each of these situations, the instant reaction is to want to step in. It takes a few minutes to realize that an instant reaction to a broken and bleeding heart might, in the long run, be absolutely the worst thing you could do. With Anthony, what? Give him another temporary home, only to have to eventually put him back into the system, one more betrayal wiser? And what happens to Cinderella when he gets home if somebody tries to step in out in public? And the longterm consequences of Syrian intervention are impossible to predict, but among the possibilities is certainly a regional, if not a world, war. Being a man of Faith, of course my recourse is always prayer. But that somehow seems inadequate — so lacking in the “instant gratification” department. I want to “do” something! And then I grudgingly acknowledge that the best — maybe the only — thing I can do is just hug my own children, laugh with them and make sure they feel loved. Changing the foster system is going to take time and legislative focus, and fixing the middle east is ... well, a bit of a bigger fish. But, gosh, wouldn’t this all be easier if everybody just loved their children more than they love control, or their habits, or their lifestyle, or their power?

then there were three

For months we’ve been led to believe that Westminster councilors Herb Atchison, Bob Briggs, Mary Lindsey and Scott Major would be the candidates for Mayor of Westminster. In fact last week the city clerk and the election commission held a drawing to determine their placement on the ballot. Now maybe you didn’t think ballot placement mattered. Folks, it matters a great deal. Good top line placement can give that candidate about a 10 percent edge.

was the ballot placement which took place already.

Back in the Day

A bombshell

Back in the day when city elections were by precinct and there were no mailin-ballots, candidates campaigned right up until Election Day and precinct voting could foretell with some degree of accuracy how the vote would come out. But then came those pesky main-inballots and it has thrown elections today into a holding pattern for several weeks prior to Election Day. Now by the end of August the city clerk has closed the window for candidates, and the next process

just gets dropped from the mail-in-ballot or will a new drawing take place. Obviously, some candidates for mayor and three council seats who got bad placement in the previous drawing would like to draw over. Then late Monday, I received word that Westminster had decided that major’s name would be removed from the ballots, and everyone below him would move up one space.

Well, to try to make a long story short, we all assumed the ballot would be printed with the four city councilor’s names as candidates. However, last Friday night at a city dinner, Scott Major announced he was dropping out for “health reasons.” And that, dear readers, throws the whole process in disarray when it comes to ballot placement. I’ve tried in vain to get someone who is a legal authority to determine if the name

How it is now

If the status quo prevails, here’s how the ballot will look for both Adams and Jefferson counties in the Westminster portion of those counties. Adams County: For Mayor: 1) Mary Lindsey, 2) Herb Atchison, 3) Bob Briggs City portion of Jefferson County For Mayor: 1) Bob Briggs, 2) Herb Atchison, 3) Mary Lindsey Three openings for city councilor candidates in Adams County: 1) A.J. Elserougi, 2) Emma Pinter, 3) Suzanne Ramirez, 4) David DeMott, 5)

Alberto Garcia, 6) Debbie Bergamo, 7) C. Michael Litzau, 8) Bruce Baker In Jefferson County portion of Westminster: 1) C. Michael Litzau, 2) Alberto Garcia, 3) Bruce Baker, 4) Emma Pinter, 5) Suzanne Ramirez, 6) Debbie Bergamo, 7) A.J. Elserougi, 8) David DeMott So there you have it. For a while there was a real undercurrent that the political Democrats and Republican parties are heavily involved. But now the interest will be on that vacancy for mayor. Next week we’ll delve into the District 50 mill levy override and the lack of competition for the two school board seats. P.S. You should get your ballot in the mail by Oct. 13-15. Stay well, stay involved and stay tuned. Vi June is past Democratic state representative for House District 35. She is a former mayor of Westminster and a former newspaper publisher. A Westminster resident for more than four decades, she and her husband, Bob, have five grown children and eight grandchildren.

Self-care is key for students embarking on new stage

The state health department has confirmed what no one in the mental health services and suicide prevention fields want to see: that suicide rates have risen to an historic high in the past year. In 2012, 1,053 Coloradoans completed suicide, representing a rate of 19.7 per 100,000 people, according to the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environant ment’s recent report. That’s the highest few number in Colorado history and a 15.8 pertion cent increase from 2011. Our state has one in of the highest suicide rates in the nation. hing As Coloradoans, we clearly need to get ourselves educated: We need to learn how ther to assess for suicide risk and get comforttualable talking about – asking about – whethmore er a loved one, a friend, a colleague or a Cinstudent is having suicidal thoughts. dy We can do this by attending a Mental ongHealth First Aid class, which are offered tion free or at a nominal cost at mental-health he centers throughout the Denver area. For ot a example, Community Reach Center offers urse free Mental Health First Aid courses in Adams County (find class dates by visiting ing; a nt. I comprehensive list of Denver-area classes is available at the Mental Health First Aid Colorado website: In the ng I past few months, a youth module has beugh come available that addresses adolescent ed. mental health concerns. How might we help our college stuing dents, in particular? Suicide is the second ger leading cause of death among college ier if students in this country, according to the ore Johns Hopkins Children’s Center in Baltior more, Md., which reports that more than 1,000 deaths by suicide occur in this age group each year. fitYoung college students face particuh his larly strong stressors, which may include a rom physical separation from family, perhaps ty of for the first time; moving far from home; living in a strange, new environment; learning new classroom and study practices; working to pay the bills; and making new friendships. Their sleep, exercise and eating patterns may change as they navigate college life. Additionally, a pre-existing mental health concern, such as depression or anxiety, can exasperate these stressors. If you or a loved one is heading off to college, please take note of the following self-care tips: First, stay in touch. “Continue to reach out to your loved ones even if they’re far away,” says Katrina Buttner, MS, an adolescent therapist at Community Reach Center’s Commerce City office. “Family is only a phone call away.”

Also develop new support systems among the students and professors at your college, she advises, and get oriented to your new surroundings as soon as you can: Know the campus, the city and the resources that can support you, from a cozy café to the campus counseling center. “It gives you a better chance of feeling comfortable in your new surroundings,” says Buttner. Stay active, beyond going to classes and studying. Keep up with your personal interests in addition to your studies; join a campus club. Volunteering at a food bank or other non-profit may help alleviate college stress, too. “Doing for others gives us a sense of fulfillment and purpose,” says Buttner. And take time for yourself. College isn’t only about studying and making the grade. “If you’re really social, you might be always on the go, always trying to meet people and do new things,” says Buttner. “But sometimes you need to take space for yourself – outside of academics. You need to be able to do something fun by yourself.” Erica Eliassen, MA, a mental health clinician with Community Reach Center, recommends other self-care practices, such as regular exercise and journaling your feelings, which are healthy outlets for stress and anxiety. “Don’t keep your emotions bottled up,” says Eliassen, who works with youth at the Adams County juvenile detention center in Brighton. “Physical exercise helps people get their minds off all the stressors in their lives,” Eliassen says. “And writing about it – getting it on paper and leaving it there – it can really help, too.” Make small goals and take small steps. College is new. Be gentle on yourself. Practice positive self-talk. If you do become overwhelmed by stress or anxiety, reach out to a professor or visit your school’s counseling center. “Seek professional help when you know you’re not feeling like yourself or if different areas of your life – or life in general

– are feeling out of control,” says Buttner. “If your mood goes down in the dumps for a period of time, if you have risky behaviors you can’t seem to stop or if you have a past history of mental health concerns or a genetic predisposition to a mental health problem … even if it feels trivial to you, just go talk with a professional.” That’s good advice that all of us can keep in mind as we practice healthy selfcare. Finally, if you or someone you know is in crisis, please contact the Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255), where help is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Part 2

Each month for the next few we will host the Caregivers Corner sharing relevant information and helpful hints for those of you in our community who are caring for a loved one. Please feel free to share this with others in your family and neighborhood who may benefit. c. Listen to your favorite CD. d. Schedule a massage or a pedicure. e. Memorize positive affirmations. f. Call a friend.

4. Research the options: a. Learn all you can about your loved ones medical condition. What is the diagnosis and prognosis? b. Are there organizations that offer information, support groups, therapy and/or assistance? Example: If he has had a stroke, call the local stroke association to determine what type of help is available. Perhaps they even have grants to provide temporary assistance in your home, respite for you, and even home modifications or medical assistance products.

6. Schedule time off once a week for no less than three hours. a. Hire a reliable substitute caregiver to come into your home to stay with your loved one. Try to schedule the same person consistently; same day, same time. DO NOT ASK YOUR LOVED ONE IF HE WANTS SOMEONE TO STAY WITH HIM! OF COURSE, HE DOESN’T. He wants you there all the time, but that is not an option. Give him workable options, such as, “Would you like Jennifer to come over in the morning or in the afternoon?” b. You can only continue to function as a caregiver if you remain healthy.

5. Indulge yourself once a week with simple pleasures: a. When grocery shopping, buy yourself a bouquet of flowers or even a single rose. b. Buy a travel magazine – and dream!

A delicious surprise from a grateful MOW client Last Friday Meals on Wheels delivery drivers were treated to a delicious surprise from a grateful client. Most of those served by the Meals on Wheel program are considered to be low income individuals and Marjorie was no exception. Through her contact with The Senior Hub Meals on Wheels program we found out that Marjorie has not had the easiest of lives, living in Louisiana during Katrina and shortly thereafter suffering the loss of her mother. During a recent delivery, Marjorie’s volunteer driver noticed that her fridge was near empty, as were her cupboards. Without being asked and without telling anyone, the our dedicated Meals on Wheels driver took it upon herself to go the grocery store and buy bags and bags of food to stock the shelves of Marjorie’s kitchen. Marjorie was so grateful, not only for the groceries, but for all the help she’s received through The Senior Hub’s Meals on Wheels program

that she called up and advised the program director that wanted to do something for the staff and volunteers that serve this organization. Marita Hafner, Program Director suggested that she just write up and thank you and send it over to be shared with the volunteers and staff. “We do not want you to spend what little you have thanking us.” Marita advised. But Marjorie had something else in mind and she wanted to give something tangible to everyone involved as an expression of her gratitude. She then took some of the money that she recently saved, after receiving assistance, and purchased a beautiful cake that was delivered to The Senior Hub. “In all my 19 years here at The Senior Hub, no client has ever sent over something like this,” reported Mrs. Hafner. The volunteers and staff alike were touched by Marjorie’s act of kindness. All of us at The Senior Hub are incredibly grate-

ful to be serving seniors in our com community and working with the amazing and thoughtful volunteers that help us do so.

If you or your loved one is a senior and needs assistance, please contact The Senior Hub at 303-426-4408 today. Let us help you…

Brenner’s loss is others’ gain

Bob Brenner, the “Extreme Weight Loss” record breaker on the hit ABC television series, was so transformed by his experience on the show that he has announced plans to become a certified life coach to help others realize weight loss success. To achieve his life coach certification, Brenner is partnering with the Coloradobased school Coach Training Alliance to become a credentialed coach. He is expected to earn his life coach certification in November. During his yearlong journey on “Extreme Weight Loss” season three (season four is being filmed at the University of Colorado’s Anschutz Health and Wellness Center in Aurora), Brenner lost a record 253 pounds — or 56 percent of his body weight — through a commitment to healthy eating, regular exercise and mental perseverance. His next extreme transformation is a total career makeover — going from Milwaukee undercover cop to national life coach. Brenner also remains good friends with “Extreme Weight Loss” host Chris Powell. Both guys were in Denver the first weekend in September.

Show makes a move

Chinook Tavern, 6380 S. Fiddlers Green Circle in the Regis University building in Greenwood Village off I-25 and Arapahoe, is the new venue for this year’s edition of “The John Fox Show,” which airs at 6:30 p.m. Wednesdays on 7News. On the first show (Fox appeared via a taped interview because of the season opener against the Ravens), Broncos Ring-of-Famer and all-time leading wide receiver Rod Smith joined 7Sports anchor Lionel Bienvenu live from the restaurant. Each week, different football guests will join Bienvenu and fans will have the opportunity to be a part of the live show. “Everybody knows the Broncos have an incredible hold on the heart of our city, and this is an exciting way for Chinook and our guests to go `inside the huddle’ this season, which could be a very memorable one for Broncos fans,” said Clemens Georg, Chinook general manager.

Colorado is fast encroaching on Silicon Valley’s crown as the king of incubators for tech startup companies, according to ( article/227829). According to the story posted Aug. 14, “Four of the top 10 metro regions in the U.S. with the most tech startups are in Colorado: Boulder, Fort Collins-Loveland, Denver and Colorado Springs. That’s according to a report released (recently) by technology policy coalition engine and entrepreneurship research association the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation.” The research defines high-tech startups as “new businesses with a concentration of employees in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math.” Here’s how Colorado cities stacked up: 1. Boulder; 2. Fort Collins-Loveland; 3. San Jose-Sunnyvale-Santa Clara, Calif. (aka Silicon Valley); 4. Cambridge-New-Framingham, Mass.; 5. Seattle; 6. Denver; 7. San Francisco; 8.

The Opal of our eye

Favorite character helps Playhouse start 78th season By Clarke Reader


he people at Arvada’s Festival Playhouse know Opal Kronkie well. The central figure of seven of John Patrick’s plays, the bag lady who lives on the edge of the municipal town dump has been delighting audiences at the theater for years, and now she’s kicking off its 78th year of production. “Opal’s Million Dollar Duck” will be on stage at the Festival Playhouse, 5665 Olde Wadsworth Blvd., Sept. 13-22. Showtimes are 7:30 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. on Sundays. “The audience really, really likes her,” said Charley Ault, Playhouse owner and director of the show. “She’s really withstood the test of time, and we like to do a little more obscure plays because we’ve been doing this for so long.” “Opal’s Million Dollar Duck” was the last Opal play Patrick wrote, and is full of his own homespun philosophies, and funny one-liners, tinged with a bit of bitterness. In this outing Opal (Donna Ault) comes across an odd painting of a duck in the garbage, and decides to sell it at her antique junk shop. When her best friend Rosie (Karen Johnston) comes calling, reminding Opal that her birthday is coming up, she decides to make it a gift for Rosie. Enter Queenie (Lindsay Griebler) and Desmond (Dennis Leach), “stars” of a local summer-stock company.

Standley Lake classes expand, offer educations for young and old


By Ashley Reimers

7305 Grandview Ave., Olde Town Arvada 720-898-3380 Editor’s Note: This is the third story of a three-part series highlighting the educational programming at Standley Lake Regional Park in Westminster. The first story focused on the history and the second story focused on recreation. Whether it’s learning about bald eagles or the importance of snake awareness, there are a variety of educational opportunities at Standley Lake. This summer alone featured many free programs for children and adults offering the public a glimpse into the history, nature and joys of the Westminster park. As an urban park, Standley Lake is a place where people in the city can leave the traffic and street lights behind, and enter into a world of nature without having to drive miles and miles to get there. Taking advantage of the close proximity to the city, Holly Walters, senior ranger at the park, said it’s a great opportunity for park staff to educate the community on the outdoors. She said one of the goals of the programs is to help people be aware of what’s at the park and help take out any fear a person may have about the outdoors. “Here at Standley lake, we really enjoy the interaction with the public and we enjoy teaching them about what the park offers so that they can come back on their own and enjoy themselves,” she said. “Especially for children, we believe it’s important to teach them about nature so they catch the bug early on. Plus it gets them away from the television and the video games.” Peggy Boccard, recreation services manager for the city, said the education programs were quite popular this summer and were well-attended. Some of the programs included: Discovering Bald eagles, which gave people an “up-close” look at the resident eagles of the park, the Edible Forage Walk, which gave people a guided tutorial on wild edibles in the park and the Birds of Standley Lake, which taught people about the large variety of bird species in the park. The snake awareness program, which taught about the different species of the snakes in the park and in Colorado, was a big hit with 48 attendees. “We want to offer different types of activities and programs so that many people can come out and enjoy the park through our educational opportunities,” Boccard said. “This year we

Phil Taylor, education and interpretation specialist at Standley Lake Regional Park, teaches some children how to bait a hook during the Fascinated with Fishing program on Aug. 24. Photo by Ashley Reimers worked hard to expand the programs at the park by dedicating more staff to the programming as well as increasing our marketing efforts.” The latest program, Fascinated with Fishing, was dedicated just to the little ones ages six to 12 and featured an extensive lesson on fishing. The children learned how to tie a hook, what it means to be an ethical angler, how to handle a fish and the anatomy of a fish. Each child went home with their one fishing pole and even had the opportunity to catch some fish at Loon Lake, a small lake just behind the Standley Lake Dam. Phil Taylor, interpretation and educational specialist at Standley Lake, taught the program, with some help from a couple other rangers. He said it’s a great feeling watching the kids learn a new skill, and especially catch a fish. He said this summer he’s seen a few kids come back for multiple programs. “I really just want kids to come out, have fun and ask questions. As long as a kid learns one thing, it’s all worth it to me,” he said. “Plus these programs

allow the kids to come and experience the park, which is great.” Boccard said she is also working on cross-promoting different programs that connect Standley Lake to other recreational programs in the city. For example, this summer there was a water color art class at Standley Lake as well as a yoga class. “I want to look at other opportunities for programs at the park that aren’t just environmental or natureoriented because the park has so much to offer,” Boccard said. “We want to get more utilization out of the park, develop more trails and other land-based recreational opportunities.” The next educational program is Be a Ranger for the Day and will give children ages six to 12 a look at what life is like for a Standley Lake ranger. The three-hour free program begins at 1 p.m. on Sept. 28. Standley Lake Regional Park is on the western edge of Westminster at 100th Avenue and Simms Street. For information on the park, visit www.

The Popsicle Race was founded by one of the cross-country coaches 23 years ago and has been carried on since. “It’s a good medium distance race,” Horizon cross country coach Michael Ryan said. “It’s not a full 5K, but it’s early enough in the season it’s just a good opportunity, the kids love the popsicles. It’s a good time.” Along with Platil, Horizon had three more girls finish in the top 5, awarding the Hawks girls team first place overall. Senior Kaley Stutzman and Taylor Bakel tied for third place with a time of 17:11. Sophomore Lauren Knight was in fifth place at 17:18. Adams City Eveleena Beedy finished

By Kate Ferraro The Horizon High School football team suffered another loss this season, 26-7 to Regis High School Sept. 6 at North Stadium leaving the squad winless thus far in 2013. The Hawks were able to keep up with the Raiders through the first half only being down 10-0 at halftime. However, two touchdowns and a safety in the second half overpowered Horizon’s lone touchdown for the Regis victory. “Before half I was pretty inspired,” Horizon Head Coach Frank Ybarra said. “I thought we grew up a lot from last week to this week. Tonight, it was better, but we’re still not good enough to beat a quality team like Regis.” Penalties have been an issue for the Hawks against both Regis and when they played Grandview Aug. 29. On their first drive in the opening quarter, the Hawks had a personal foul taking them back 15 yards. In the same quarter, Horizon had to replay second down after a pass interfer-

ence call. “Right now, when we have penalties, they’re drive killers for us,” Ybarra said. “You can’t keep digging yourself out of second and 25 holes anymore. We’ve got some cleaning up to do.” The Hawks held the Raiders to a 0-0 score going into the second quarter. With six minutes left in the second half, Regis running back Grant Neal took a handoff from quarterback Josh Aguilar-Wynn and ran the ball into the endzone for a touchdown and the 7-0 lead. Horizon defensive back Dominick Castiglione blocked two passes from going into the Raiders’ receivers hands and had an interception late in the second quarter. But it wasn’t enough since Regis intercepted the ball right back and kicked a field goal going into halftime with a 10-0 lead. “He’s a spark plug,” Ybarra said of Castiglione. “He’s a tough kid; he knows how to find the football. The interception was a great play, he needed that so bad. He’s just a fiery football player.” The Raiders scored a touchdown and got a safety in the third quarter, leading the game 19-0. Regis runningback Kameron Butler increased the result 26-0 just 36 seconds into

Legacy takes Mayor’s Cup from Broomfield Lightning wins rival game 27-23 By Kate Ferraro After losing the intra-city Mayor’s Cup to Broomfield two consecutive years, Legacy’s football team repossessed the trophy following a 27-23 win in a cross-town rivalry game Sept. 7 at North Stadium. “They battled and battled and battled and Broomfield hung tight, but we prevailed in the end, and I’m proud of our kids,” Legacy head coach Wayne Voorhees said. The Lightning won a close game which started out as a comfortable lead going into halftime 20-3. In the third quarter, Legacy kicker Huntor Rainwater missed a field goal with six minutes left in the third. When the Eagles got the ball back, Broomfield quarterback Alec McLain ran the ball

into the endzone shortening Legacy’s lead by only 10 points. With a minute left in the third, the Eagles intercepted the ball and scored at the beginning of the fourth quarter, closing the gap even more for the Lightning, 2017. With seven minutes left in the game, Legacy defensive back Drew Hebel made an interception. Running back Taten Petersian scored a much-needed touchdown for Legacy, widening the score 27-17. “Drew had a good game on defense and on special teams, he did a lot of good things for us,” Voorhees said. “That pick was big in the third quarter, and I’m proud of him, he made some good plays.” With two minutes left, Broomfield scored another touchdown, but the point after touchdown was blocked by Lightning defensive lineman Andrew LaGuardia. With 19 seconds left and the ball on the Eagles’ 19-yard line, McLain attempted to run the ball himself but was tackled to the ground, presenting Legacy with the 27-23

win and the Mayor’s Cup. Wide receiver Jacob Royer scored the first touchdown of the game off a pass from quarterback Matt Lynch in the first quarter. Wide receiver Jordan Van Valkenburg also scored off a pass from Lynch in the second quarter. Rainwater kicked two field goals in the second for a 20-3 lead at halftime. Besides the field goals, there wasn’t a Legacy player who scored multiple times. “We try to distribute the ball a little bit,” Voorhees said. “We’re going to pound at you, and then we’re going to throw it a few times and we made some plays early. As many guys that can make touches the better.” Legacy is 1-1 overall and will now travel to Parker to play a Chaparral team who’s 0-2. “Some of the things they’re going to try to do is they’re going to try to run the ball, and we have to show up our run defense a little bit,” Voorhees said. “Offensively, we just have to keep the ball moving.”

Legacy tennis undefeated with 5-0 record

4:45.Northglenn falls to erall. o farLegacy 7-0 have dur-By Kate Ferraro workskferraro@ourcoloradonell unds vita- Legacy’s boy’s tennis team swept Northglenn 7-0 workon Sept. 4, at Legacy High hem-School, keeping their winm toning streak alive with a 5-0 ey’verecord. This is the third match this season where the Lightning has shut out their opponent. Legacy twins Mike and Dave Rosencrans are playing No. 1 and No. 2 singles, respectively, after three years of playing doubles together. Mike Rosencrans said even though he and his brother have played singles before, there are still some things he needs to improve on. “I’m still going on the court with a doubles mindset,” Mike Rosencrans said. “I need to work on a little more power, a little more aggression.” Mike Rosencrans defeated Northglenn senior Chris Haynes 6-2, 6-0, while Dave Rosencrans swept Northglenn junior Nick Risma 6-0, 6-0. Legacy junior Alec Jensen won in No. 3 singles 6-1, 6-2 against Northglenn sophomore John Michael Francisco. In Northglenn’s first two matches of the season, freshman Sam Vang played No. 3 singles and was 2-0 on the season. However against Legacy, he played No. 1 doubles with sophomore Travis Bakun and lost to Legacy senior Shad Karl-

son and freshman Jordan Boucher 6-3, 6-3. Legacy coach Alan Godman said he thinks the team’s success this year has come from a mix of the upperclassmen and the younger classmen moving up. “We’ve got three freshmen that are in the starting lineup which greatly helps,” Godman said. “The upper classmen have been in the program, seniors all fours year, juniors three years, so they’ve all progressed through that time and they’re skills have improved. We have 27 kids out which is basically two squads. That helps us as well because it ups the level of competition.” Even though the Lightning are undefeated, they’re just now getting into their conference games. Godman said once they start playing teams that are in their conference, everything gets a little bit tougher. He said there are still some issues the team needs to work out. “We’re continuing to work hard on basic skills of playing doubles,” Godman said. “Basic skills of serving, improving our serves and our serve placement. Learning not to over hit the ball. We’re just continuing to try to improve a little bit every day.” Legacy will play Fairview Sept. 10 at home and Horizon Sept. 12 at Horizon High School. Northglenn is 2-1 and will go back home Sept. 10 to play Cherry Creek, then travel to Sept. 12 to Peak to Peak High School.

Wolves win four ways Westminster sweeps softball tourney By Kate Ferraro Westminster High School softball pitcher Marisa Kennedy struck out seven batters and had two hits with three RBIs to guide her team to a 17-4 victory against George Washington in Westminster’s home tournament Sept. 7 at Waddell Park. Kennedy had a single in the second inning bringing home freshman Natalie Taylor for one RBI and a double in the fourth tallying two more RBIs. “She’s made a lot of gains, both in her speed and her mental game,” Head Coach Alexandra Dickinson said. “Last year we battled with putting too many runners on base by ourselves by either walking them or hitting them. She’s made huge gains this year.” The Wolves began the game well, scoring six runs in the first inning alone. The team had two triples and one double to lead the game 6-2 at the end of the first. They scored twice more in the second and one run in the third making the score 9-4 at the end of the third. Westminster added eight more runs to the scoreboard in the fourth inning. With the bases loaded, sophomore Jordan Smith hit a triple, bringing in three teammates. The Wolves scored five more times in the inning, forcing the mer-

cy rule and winning 17-4. “We pulled through,” Dickinson said. “We had some phenomenal hits. We got sloppy on defense though. They definitely capitalized on it. We just need to clean it up defensively, but offensively we’re really strong right now.” In the game, Smith, a sophomore, had two triples and three RBI. Dickinson said Smith is a great utility player and she did well in the game even after a poor start. “She struggled a bit in the first inning with a couple of errors, got down on herself a bit,” Dickinson said. “She was able to dig herself out of that hole and ended up making some great plays and great hits.” Kennedy continued her success in Westminster’s game against John F. Kennedy High School striking out 10 players. The Wolves scored five runs in the fifth inning to guide them to a 12-2 win. Westminster also beat Overland 10-1 and Peak to Peak 17-4 in the tournament Sept. 6 at Waddell Park. The Wolves are now 6-4 overall and will travel to Aurora Sept. 12 to play Rangeview. “It’s nice to host the tournament and to be successful within it,” Dickinson said. “It definitely helps out our program a lot. This is the only fundraiser we do so it’s a nice sense of pride to be able to have this tournament and see all these teams participating.”
