Human services center opens on Federal Officials laud 3CE location By Mikkel Kelly
firstname.lastname@example.org Three words – love the location – describe the perspective of attendees Saturday at the grand opening of the Center for Career & Community Enrichment, south of 72nd on Federal Boulevard. The new multi-service center — dubbed 3CE — at 7117 Federal Blvd. in Westminster will provide classes, workshops and numerous services for low-income residents. The site is credited with bringing needed Adams County human services to the west side of Interstate 25. Further, the location on Federal Boulevard is considered easy to find and easily
accessible to bus lines. “I’m so happy we are so close (to this portion of the county) and not just for the families we serve, but the community as well,” said Elizabeth Aryeetey, family selfsufficiency coordinator at the center. Aryeetey introduced Brandieli Ciddio-Garrison, a single mother who credited three to four years of assistance programs directed by Aryeetey with helping her family to overcome challenges. Garrison said she has achieved self-sufficiency and is now working at an adult day-care center and serves as a court appointed advocate at CASA, an Adams and Broomfield counties agency that assists abused children. “3CE is greatly appreciated in this community because at
one time there were four workforce centers then it was cut to one due to the economy at 120th and Sable in Thornton,” CiddioGarrison said. “So this new center is very convenient for a lot of people.” Congressman Ed Perlmutter addressed the gathering of about 50 people Saturday and said, “If you can’t get there it ain’t worth a hill of beans. This center will make it easier for people to take advantage of the opportunities we have.” Faith Winter, Westminster mayor pro tem, noted having the selected combination of services in one building makes needed resources much more accessible.

Residents stand behind proposed development Vacant lot set to become medical plaza, day care and storage units By Tammy Kranz

Mapleton focuses on healthy meals Made-from-scratch food offered in school cafeterias By Tammy Kranz
Robert Mattoch, a chef consultant with LiveWell Colorado, chops lettuce on Oct. 15 during a workshop at Mapleton Public Schools about scratch cooking.
Whole wheat pasta and bread; chicken hot dogs; steamed vegetables; nonprocessed food, so raw chicken and pork are prepared on site; multiple items made from scratch — such as ranch dressing, marinara sauce, lasagna and soup. This menu sounds like that of a health-conscious adult, but it’s actually what students in Mapleton Public Schools are eating. Hungry kids don’t learn well, and Mapleton wants to satisfy their hunger healthily. “Under the leadership of our nutrition services director, Joella Carron, we’ve take all deep fryers and breaded items out of our kitchens and are now serving our children whole grains,
grilled chicken sandwiches, and even fruit instead of syrup on pancakes,” said Melissa Johnson, communication specialist. “We are doing some incredible things in our kitchens. We are excited to continue such culinary advancements through our partnership with LiveWell.” LiveWell Colorado conducted a twoday culinary workshop Oct. 14-15 at Mapleton for its nutrition staff, with a focus on scratch cooking and recipe and menu development. “More than one in four Colorado children are overweight or obese and only 8 percent of Colorado’s children meet recommended levels of fruit and vegetable consumption.” Venita Currie, program director at LiveWell Colorado “So we wanted to jump into the food fight and teach kids healthy food is good for them and it can taste good too.” Meals continues on Page 17
Thornton City Council unanimously approved plans for the development of a medical building, day care and ministorage facility at the northeast intersection of East 123rd Avenue and Colorado Boulevard. The 8-0 approval came after a public hearing during council’s special meeting on Oct. 15. Ward 3 Councilwoman Lynne Fox excused herself from the hearing and vote because she resides within 1,500 feet of the property. Nine residents spoke in favor of the development, while three voiced their opposition. Some of those in favor of the plans talked about this being a better development than those suggested in the past — such as Albertsons, which has closed many stores — and the fact the development will bring property tax revenue into the city. “I don’t see anything wrong with this,” said Kathy Lyons, who lives across where the storage facility will be located. “The only thing people might have issues with is the storage unit, but it will be low key, the height is low, there’s not going to be a lot of activity in there. I really do hope you approve this Because eventually something awful is going to go in there — this will work.” One resident against the development cited concerns about the mini storage Lot continues on Page 17

Our values drive our success One of my very favorite things about being in the coaching, training, and learning and development industry is when I have an opportunity to meet and observe other trainers or facilitators, authors, and subject matter experts. I am sharing this with you because I had a wonderful opportunity to sit in on a session recently conducted by Peter Thomas. His career and accomplishments were extremely impressive, however his presentation was focused on values, and it was his passion and conviction around this topic that really captured my attention. Although he normally delivers the course over two days, the four-hour abbreviated version had a tremendous impact on me and how I see and define my own success. What are my values? What do I value most? Why do I value these things? Intuitively I have understood the importance of identifying my values and their relation to my success and have spent time identifying them in the past and even
committing them to writing. Yet during this recent session with Peter Thomas I questioned and even challenged myself a little on how much emphasis I was placing on my own values and was I really living those values. Typically when I teach a class or coach a client and we discuss values I hear words like honesty, integrity, family, knowledge, and other very nice words and strong values. So when I was tasked with working through my own, I came up with about 14 words or values. Then after thinking through them a little more
I distilled the list down to seven values and found the other words and values fit better as sub-values or categories. If you don’t mind me sharing, here is what I do value: Faith, Family, Love, Trust, Kindness, Happiness, and Fitness. And the other values that fall somewhere under each one include: Togetherness, Compassion, Time, Quiet Time, Loyalty, Effort, Purpose, Commitment, Wisdom, and Peace, with some of these falling under more than one major value. Have you considered what it is you really value and why? Success is different for everyone as some define success by status, money, achievements, and in many other ways. What if we looked at success and measured our success in relation to our values instead of our accomplishments or at least alongside of them? If we compromise our values to achieve status or things, are we truly successful? I know this sounds so philosophical or maybe you see it as wishful thinking. But if you are a little like me maybe, and
Mayors across the United States are recognizing a growing movement that is dedicated to encouraging individuals and organizations to “go the extra mile” in service and volunteerism. On Nov. 1, more than 400 mayors will declare “Extra Mile Day,” including Thornton Mayor Heidi Williams. Extra Mile Day celebrates individuals and organizations that have chosen to create positive change in their communities by going the extra mile. Created in 2009 with twenty-three cities making the inaugural declaration, Extra Mile Day has continued to build momentum each year since.

Rooftop restaurants in the works Two eateries may feature rooftop sites at Webster Lake By Tammy Kranz
firstname.lastname@example.org Northglenn City Council unanimously approved a resolution to provide an incentive of up to $500,000 for rooftop restaurant uses for the Webster Lake Promenade development. The incentives would be for two rooftop restaurants, not to exceed $250,000 per use, for tap fees. The approval came during council’s Oct. 14 regular meeting. Webster Lake Promenade is a 10-acre commercial development at 120th Avenue and Grant Street. One of the development’s tenants, Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar, is interested in a rooftop restaurant. The second rooftop restaurant has not been secured yet. Webster Lake Promenade will house about 47,000 square feet of restaurant, re-
tail and other commercial space with seven buildings. The site is being developed by Hawkins, which acquired the property from the city and NURA in early July. The other tenants who have signed leases at the Promenade include: Longhorn Steakhouse, Sleep Number by Select Comfort, Pacific Dental Services, Taziki’s Mediterranean Café, Café Rio Mexican Grill, Jamba Juice, Panera Bread, Jim `N Nick’s Bar-B-Q and Jimmy John’s. The majority of the tenants should be open by mid-summer with full construction built out in 18 months, according to Debbie Tuttle, economic development manager for the city of Northglenn. Officials celebrated a groundbreaking on July 29. Tuttle said that almost 300,000 people live within five miles of the location, and between 120th Avenue and Interstate 25, almost 210,000 cars pass by each day. The project will bring in approximately $13 million in capital investments and 200 new jobs, according to Hawkins Development.

Council approves ban on types of pets sold Ordinance designed to stop the support of puppy mills By Tammy Kranz
firstname.lastname@example.org Northglenn City Council passed the first reading of an ordinance that outlaws selling dogs, cats and rabbits in pet stores unless those animals came from an animal shelter or rescue organization. The measure passed by a 7-1 vote during council’s Oct. 14 regular meeting. Gene Wieneke, Ward IV, cast the dissenting vote. Susan Clyne, Ward III, was absent. Council rejected a similar ordinance by a 4-5 vote on first reading during its July 8 regular meeting. Ward II Councilwoman Leslia Carrico said she asked that the ordinance be brought back because she misunderstood something in the ordinance in July and incorrectly voted against it. “I think (the ordinance) shows the fact that we are against puppy milling, that we want to reduce our cost in shelters and that we’re really kind of standing up for animals and making sure that they are care for appropriately and not just bred inhumanely,” Carrico said.
The ordinance grandfathers in the pet stores already operating in the city. The ordinance has been revised from the original one by allowing individuals to sell or give away pets in public places. Wieneke said he was against the measure because since it grandfathers the one pet store that sells dogs and cats, that it creates a monopoly. Mayor Joyce Downing said she had mixed feelings. “I think it sends a message that we really don’t like pet mills, but on the other hand, you’re right, it is a monopoly of sorts,” she said. Ward I Councilwoman Carol Dodge said the whole ordinance was moot because it won’t affect the existing businesses, but that it’s a nice way to take an ethical stand. The other council members that spoke encouraged Northglenn residents to show up at the public hearing to voice their opinion on this ordinance. They said they have gotten support for the ordinance, but mostly from people who live outside the city, like in Boulder or Centennial. The second and final vote on the ordinance will follow a public hearing at 7 p.m. Monday, Oct. 28, at City Hall, 11701 Community Center Drive.

Roundtable discussion defines key issues Metro mayors discuss ways to make communities thrive By Crystal Anderson
email@example.com The theme of cooperation and dedication highlighted the Regional Mayoral Roundtable, Friday, Oct. 18. Hosted by the Arvada Chamber of Commerce and the Jefferson County Business Lobby, the mayoral roundtable brought together five regional mayors to discuss initiatives facing the Denver metro community and the state at the Arvada Center, 6901 Wadsworth Blvd. The event hosted five area mayors — Mayor Marc Williams, Arvada; Mayor Michael Hancock, Denver; Mayor Nancy McNally, Westminster; Mayor Marjorie Sloan, Golden; Mayor Heidi Williams, Thornton — and Gov. John Hickenlooper. The mayors answered questions regarding transportation and the rail systems, prohibition of medical marijuana growers and shops within each community, and homelessness. More than 130 business leaders from across the region attended the event, in-
cluding past Arvada City Councilwoman, Bernie Burgmaier, who was eager to hear about the state of the community. “I’m really interested in what’s going on in our community and politics in general,” Burgmaier said. The mayors also highlighted the importance of urban renewal programs and how working together, consistently, as a region, makes the community thrive. “It’s a mandate to cooperate,” said Mayor Hancock regarding regionalism, “if we want to fulfill the possibilities of this area, we cannot be mutually exclusive, we must do this together.” Toward the end of the event, the Arvada Chamber of Commerce Chairman, Jerry Marks, welcomed Hickenlooper. He spoke passionately about Amendment 66 and discussed the advantages of the resolution. “For the first time in the United States, if this passes, the money follows the child,” he said, “We’re creating a real incentive for teachers and schools to make sure these kids don’t drop out.” Following the governor’s address, Marks honored Arvada Chamber of Commerce President Dot Wright, as this was her last event as chamber president.

Forum introduces candidates, talks Amendment 66 By Ashley Reimers
firstname.lastname@example.org With mail-in ballots out the door, Adams 12 Five Star School District residents had an opportunity to learn about the school board members during a candidate forum, before deciding who to vote for in this year’s election. The forum, Oct. 17, was hosted by the District School Improvement Team, DSIT, and was attended by school board candidates Joshua Bastian, David Elliott, Kathy Plomer, Rico Figueroa and Amy Speers. Debbie Christensen was unable to attend. Each candidate gave a five-minute introduction followed by an open-forum layout giving parents and community members the opportunity to speak one-on-one with each candidate. The forum also featured an Amendment 66 discussion with speakers from both sides of the issue. On the November ballot, Amendment 66 is asking voters to approve an income tax increase to raise money for pre-school to 12th grade education. If approved it would raise $950 million for Colorado schools. The cost to tax payers is about $133 per year for the average family. Lauren Arnold, a volunteer with a Greater Education Colorado, a statewide, nonpartisan, grassroots organization that is focused on improving education in Colorado, spoke about the benefits of the Amendment 66. Arnold, who is also with Colorado Commits to Kids, the proponent of the measure, said the revenue raised from the state tax increase will be locked in a the new State Education Achievement Fund where it can only be used for education reform, rural

DigitalGlobe, a leading provider of commercial high-resolution earth observation and advanced geospatial solutions, has finalized a 15-year lease for a new headquarters location in Westminster. In early September, shortly after DigitalGlobe announced that it had entered into a non-binding letter of intent with a developer for a new headquarters in Broomfield, it received an unsolicited offer to lease a building near I-25 and 120th Ave. in Westminster. Several benefits factored into DigitalGlobe’s decision to sign the

OPINIONS / YOURS AND OURS
Our picks: Support Downing, Brown, Snetzinger The Northglenn City Council has had a steady, productive run in recent years. We owe much of that to Mayor Joyce Downing. She is being challenged by the accomplished council member Gene Wieneke, but Downing has simply earned the right to keep the job for a second term. Downing provides inclusive and steady leadership. She has a listen-to-others first habit that has helped her assess issues and gain consensus in her distinctive decision-making style. Likewise we are impressed with incumbents Kim Snetzinger in Ward 4 and Joe Brown in Ward 2. Snetzinger has a steady approach to targeting economic development and taking care of infrastructure. Brown used his experience on planning commission to quickly become an effective council member in his firts term. He too has a balanced approach with an eye
OUR VIEW to redevelopment and common sense for the garden variety of challenges that cities face. We tip our hats to the challengers, but this is a year that three talented incumbents have not done anything to lose their jobs. Instead they have provided good reasons to merit votes of confidence.
Thornton — Yes to ballot questions
The City of Thornton as a variety of ballot questions. For the most part, all are no-brainers in our estimation. Term limits – Ballot Question 2C: We
urge voters to approve a question to extend term limits from two to three. We like that three four-year terms would match some other cities and Thornton’s county of residence — Adams. The change respects the idea of term limits but extends to a reasonable three terms, allowing those with the most talent and support to serve a little longer. Open Space – Ballot Question 2B: Through the years the northern Adam cities have put open space tax to good work. Securing open space at present is key to the long-term quality of life. A 20-year extension of the Parks and Open Space Tax is a good move for the future of the city. The 0.25 percent tax equates to 25 cents on a $100 purchase — fair enough for a very good investment. Lower minimum age to serve on council — Ballet Question 2D: A question
put in place by local resident Seth Thomas would lower the age to serve on council from 25 to 21. We agree with the idea that this would allow more participation of younger residents. Further the nature of the council with eight council members and a mayor provides an ideal setting for a variety of age groups to learn together, work together, govern together. Next gen report to duty. Mayoral vacancies – Ballot Question 2E: Thornton wrangled with complications when Mayors Noel Busck and Erik Hansen left office. A change in charter language to allow the mayor pro tem serve as acting mayor until the next regular election in these instances is a simple solution. It cuts down on costs and political positioning. The mayor pro tem is chosen carefully by the council and saving funds on special elections is smart government.

Last week, I wrote a little about Peyton Manning, his mastery of systems, and the Common Core State Standards. I pointed out that Common Core, while well-intentioned, is merely another iteration of the assumption that knowledge comes in nice little compartments. It’s the same assumption that most of the current American education system is based on. But that’s not how the brain works. “Smart,” Ed Psych professors tell me, is being able to make connections and see how disparate bits of information link together into a unified whole. Marion Brady champions a type of education based on systems theory, which links all the individual subjects under an umbrella of intersecting uses of knowledge — a unified whole. The great thing is, we know this idea works: D’Evelyn Middle/High School uses a curricular design that is integrated horizontally. According to Terry Elliot, former D’Evelyn Principal, a ninth-grade social studies teacher can make reference to the novel “Siddhartha” while studying Indian geography, knowing that the students will have read that novel in their English class. Such a design creates a richer, deeper context of learning for the students, which helps both comprehension and retention. And, as exhibit A for this strategy, D’Evelyn was recently recognized as one of America’s Top Schools by U.S. News and World Report. Unfortunately, it’s hard to test an umbrella; “systems” don’t make for easy to implement computer-based testing regimes; and the need to “do something” overrides the difficult discussions of design and system. And so Common Core becomes the default curriculum of the land. And at the same time, you are being asked to vote to give an additional $1 billion a year to education through Amend-
ment 66. It’s being sold in a well-funded advertising campaign as a “small price to pay” for continued gym classes, and more teacher’s aides in the classroom, and reviving music programs, and the like. Some people will remember just 8 years ago when Referendum C was on the ballot, and was being pushed for just such benefits. At the time, I described it as a “$3 billion fix for an $800 million problem,” but it passed, so everything should have been hunky dory, right? But here we are again, less than a decade later, being asked to hand out $1 billion per year. As usual, there are those who have pointed out problems with 66, among them the funding formula which returns to Jefferson County Schools just 56 cents for every dollar collected from Jeffco taxpayers. But, again, that mechanism is just a tree; the forest is this: is $1 billion a year going to get us a better system, or does it just prop up the same old system? Ask yourself, the next time you see one of those very clever ads, are the gym classes relating cardiovascular activity to cellular biology and the physics of work and energy? Are the music students linking the Baroque style of Bach to the flourishes of Alcorn continues on Page 7

Campaign season in full swing “All politics is local.” Tip O’Neill, former Speaker of the House said it best. It’s best played out right in our own small communities and indeed right on the street we live on. And it starts when a candidate asks for our vote. Yes, “all politics is local.” Last week our mailbox (the old-fashioned kind) was filled with slick, full color large brochures extolling the qualifying virtues of our candidates. But you can’t beat the timely, good old-fashioned “knocking on the door” as the most effective way to earn a vote from your neighbors. It’s the ultimate, but in Westminster, impossible to work since all our city is an at-large makeup. Most of our neighboring cities are divided into wards and it makes it a lot easier to meet and greet. It’s also a lot less expensive to cover a district than an entire city. Use Every Means Due to this “at large” designation, many of our candidates are also resorting to email and robo phone calls. And this year we’re being asked to participate in phone conference calls.
If there is such a thing as overkill, Bob Briggs is the winner. His signs are everywhere, his literature abundant and so is Bob, present wherever two or more voters meet. Bob has been working hard to win the mayor election. He and Herb Atchison will probably split up the majority of the votes. Yes, Mary Lindsey is also a candidate but her lack of funding is definitely hurting her chances. In these elections, money talks and more money usually produces a winner. Speaking of money The candidate with the biggest war chests looks most likely to garner top votes, especially if they can combine
hefty contributions with good placement on the ballot. And that is determined by a coin toss. It certainly gives contenders a few more votes when folks peruse the candidate order. More about money To give you a little insight of campaign fund-raising, let’s take a look at how much money all of our mayor candidates took in as of October 15th. Bob Briggs, mayoral candidate, has the biggest war chest. He reported $20,176; Herb Atchison reported $19,238; Scott Major collected $5,097 but since he dropped out he’ll have to dispense with that money. Maybe he can give it to Mary Lindsey who lags far behind in fund raising. She has $3,851 and that doesn’t measure up for a serious candidate. On the councilor side The top fundraising totals for one of the three open seats on the city council are as follows: Albert Garcia leads the pack of eight contenders with $18,709 followed closely be Emma Pinter with a war chest of $15,876. Next we have Mike Litzau with $6,870, David Demott $5,329,
Bruce Baker claiming $1,419, A.J. Elserough has $1,244 and Debbie Bergamo $325.00. You have to wonder why some candidates are even in the race. Suzanne Ramirez, a teacher in Jefferson County, reported $130. I never counted her as serious after she showed up just 20 minutes before the deadline. Maybe she was just playing the spoiler role. Folks, those campaigns are very expensive and we need to let the candidates have our careful consideration. There are several standouts who would make excellent councilors and it’s refreshing to see new, younger folks, putting themselves out there so we can continue to have good clean government in Westminster. 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.
LETTER TO THE EDITOR Found dog lost again
It’s true when they say that a dog is a man’s best friend, but in this case, a dog became a little girl’s companion, best friend, and protector, until two weeks ago when a series of unfortunate events broke my heart. I am 16 years old, and Cookie’s my companion since I was ten. He ran away from my home on Saturday, Sept. 28. I tried everything I could think of to find Cookie and finally located him on petharbor.com. By the time I was actually able to speak to someone at the Adams County Shelter, they said they had given him to the Internet Miniature Pinshcer Service (IMPS, minpinrescue.org) rescue. I contacted them directly, and they told me that I could fill out an application to readopt Cookie. I completed the application and provided all of the requested informa-
tion, including the veterinarian’s contact number. While they were processing my application, they informed me that it had been delayed because the veterinarian did not have a record for Cookie. Yet I have called and verified the records from 20102012, plus I have copies of the vaccination reports from the clinic. This wouldn’t have been an issue except that their mistake delayed my application, resulting in the approval of another home for Cookie, or as they now call him, Ellis. They are now saying I can’t have my dog back. I am mentally and physically distraught. I cannot believe that IMPS approved another home for Cookie less than a week after they led me to believe that I had a chance to get him back. I am grieving the loss of my dog. I cannot focus on my grades or sports. Every time I see a dog, I burst into tears. I feel betrayed by a system that should be helping me get back my best friend instead of giving him away
to complete strangers when he already has a loving home. I feel like I was taken advantage of because of my age and my family has money issues. I may only be 16, but I did everything IMPS asked me to, and Cookie and I shouldn’t be penalized for their mistake. Andrea Bonilla Thornton
Adams 12 could use paradigm shift
Columnist Michael Alcorn was right (Hitting Home, Oct. 10). We need to be aware of paradigms that affect our lives. We should all “learn to ride the (changing paradigm) waves as they shift beneath us” – even change some. The Adams 12 School Board is operating under the paradigm that stashing tax-
payer dollars away for a rainy day is more important than providing a well-rounded education that produces citizens capable of complex problem solving. Are children better off with larger class sizes, fewer support staff, no middle school sports, dwindling art/music programs, and frustrated, over-worked teachers? No. That is a paradigm we must shift – with new faces on the school board. Kathy Plomer and Amy Speers are the best choices to get D-12 on the right track. Both have extensive backgrounds with District 12 programs and are professional women with lots of experience in solid decision-making to support kids. They deserve our vote. Don Wood, Thornton
Alcorn Continued from Page 6
Gothic architecture and the intellectuals of the Enlightenment? In other words, are we getting a better system? I know that Amendment 66 is not explicitly about Common Core, but they are linked as functional parts of a system. And that system, even with all the tweaks and tests and taxes added over
the years, is not serving our children very well. So the question you have to ask yourself, as you cast your ballot in a few weeks, is this: are our politicians and bureaucrats enough like Peyton Manning to make this system work for a mere one billion dollars? Michael Alcorn is a music teacher and fitness instructor who lives in Arvada with his wife and three children. He graduated from Alameda High School and the University of Colorado-Boulder.
Westminster forms own chamber By Ashley Reimers
email@example.com There’s a new chamber in town: the Westminster Chamber of Commerce. With five businesses already in the directory, the new organization was developed to promote, support and connect member businesses and organizations to the residents of Westminster through technology, cooperation and community, according to the website, http://westminsterchamber.biz. One notable person leading the efforts to develop another chamber is city councilor, and Westminster mayor candidate, Bob Briggs, who said there is no one organization that represents all of Westminster. He says the Metro North Chamber of Commerce, established in 1959, does not adequately represent the entire Westminster community. “We need some organization that promotes the city as a whole, on both sides of the magical line called Sheridan Boulevard,” Briggs said. “The Metro North Chamber does a good job representing the Adams County half of Westminster,
but they do not promote Westminster as a total city.” Briggs said he’s been thinking about another chamber for three years and it’s taken a long time to get the pieces together to finally have the Westminster Chamber come to fruition. Although the chamber news is catching the attention of the community during election season, Briggs said the launch of the chamber is not part of his campaign race of mayor. “If we could have launched before this time, we would have,” he said. One person taken by surprise by the news of the Westminster Chamber of Commerce is Metro North Chamber of Commerce CEO Deb Obermeyer. She said the idea seemed to come “out of the blue, with no real explanation of problems Briggs wants to address or benefits that the business community would gain.” She said her office has fielded many calls from Metro North Chamber members wondering what Briggs is trying to accomplish. “We have always had a good relationship with Mr. Briggs,” Obermeyer said. “It only stands to reason that this proposal would do more harm than good, since it would fracture all our efforts toward regionalism.”

Forum supports amendment By Vic Vela
email@example.com Hispanic leaders came together in Denver on Oct. 21 to urge folks to support a school finance tax hike that they say will greatly impact Latino students. Colorado Lt. Gov. Joe Garcia headlined a forum at El Museo de las Americas, where he touted the highlights of Amendment 66, a statewide ballot measure that will create $950 million in new taxes annually to fund an overhaul of the state’s school finance overhaul. The money would be used to implement reforms that were put in place earlier this year by the Democrat-led Legislature. The taxes would fund full-day kindergarten, preschool for at-risk youth and pro-
vide more resources for school programs, including those that directly impact English language learners. Garcia, a Democrat, said that the tax hike — which will have a greater impact on tax payers with higher incomes — is a small price to pay to ensure that Colorado remains one of the most highly educated states in the country. “We’re going to go from the second most well-educated state to the first, and lot of those kids that will help us get there will be a lot of our Latino kids,” Garcia said. Growing numbers of English language learners and children living in poverty in counties like Adams and Jefferson would get more funding under Amendment 66. Both Jefferson County Public Schools and the Adams 12 Five Star School district
would receive a 14 percent funding increase, if the measure passes. The districts would also see similar per pupil funding increases. Adams 12 would go from a per-pupil funding base of $6,463 to $7,076, a 9.5 percent increase, while Jeffco would see its per-pupil funding increase from $6,486 to $7,112, a 9.7 percent raise. Amendment 66 would raise taxes on all Colorado taxpayers. It would raise income taxes to 5 percent on everyone earning $75,000 or less. Those who earn over that amount would pay 5 percent on the first $75,000 in taxable income and 5.9 percent on taxable income above $75,000. Colorado’s current income tax rate is a flat 4.63 percent, regardless of income level.
Guillermo “Bill” Vidal, who briefly served as Denver mayor and who currently is the CEO of the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Metro Denver, said that his chamber board supports Amendment 66, regardless of the price tag. “For a business group to support a tax increase is an unusual thing,” he said. Critics say the ballot measure only throws more money at a bureaucratic school system, and that the new formula does not have enough reform or transparency to be effective. Opponents also blast Amendment 66 as a huge tax increase on all Colorado taxpayers at a time when they could least afford it. Not a single Republican voted for the legislation that is tied to Amendment 66, Senate Bill 213.
Bridge opens along corridor By Ashley Reimers
firstname.lastname@example.org Members of the Colorado Department of Transportation, Regional Transportation District and city officials from Westminster and Broomfield came together on Oct. 15 to open the new Uptown Avenue bridge, formerly known as the Olde Wadsworth/112th Avenue bridge. The new Wadsworth Parkway bridge, the first completed replacement bridge which opened on Oct. 5, was also celebrated during the event. “We are thrilled to reach this milestone,” said Mark Gosselin, US 36 Express Lanes project director. “The Uptown Avenue and the Wadsworth Parkway bridges are vital connections for the regional and local communities.” The US 36 Express Lanes project is a $312 million, multimodule project between Federal Boulevard and 88th Avenue Street in Louisville/Superior. The project is building an express lane in each direction of U.S. 36. The lanes will accommodate
high-occupancy vehicles, bus rapid transit and tolled single-occupancy vehicles. Phase 1, currently under construction, will extend from Federal Boulevard to 88th Street in Louisville/Superior and open by January 2015. Phase 2, which is expected to begin this winter, will extend from 88th Street to Table Mesa in Boulder and is set to open in January 2016. Other bridges up for replacement in the project are the Wadsworth Boulevard bridge at 112 Avenue, Lowell Boulevard and Sheridan Boulevard bridges as well as the U.S. 36 bridge over the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway. Improvements will be made on the Westminster Promenade bridge and the East and West Flatiron bridges. The project will include new electronic display signage at stations and bus priority improvements at ramps and the total cost of the project is $317 million. “This bridge represents progress to me and is part of the FasTracks Progress,” said Judy Lubow, RTD District I Director. “The Uptown Avenue bridge is part of the infra-

Lifetree Café taps current affairs Fostering deep discussion through faith and life By Crystal Anderson
canderson@ourcoloradonews. com Have you been wrongly accused? How do you respond in those situations? These are a few of the questions which guided the conversation during the “Wrongly Accused: A Rush to Judgment” video at this week’s Lifetree Café at Peace Lutheran Church, 5675 Field St., Arvada, CO. Based in Loveland, the Lifetree Café organization presents modern faith and life-related issues weekly, via a video interview, in a safe, comfortable coffeehouse environment, bringing people together to discuss such topics and share their stories, across the country. “I come because it has interesting, God-centered, topics that are fresh and relevant,” said Evie Cullman, Lifetree Café attendee and Peace Lutheran Church member. A little over a year ago, Polly Wegner, director of discipleship at Peace Lutheran Church, began hosting a Lifetree Café gathering in Arvada as a way to reach the community outside of her church. “I had heard about it, and
Evie Cullman, Polly Wegner, Irene Klausz and Bettie Johnson discuss the effects of being wrongly accused during this Lifetree Café.
Lifetree Locations Lifetree Café meets at several locations throughout the week. The Arvada branch meets in the café at Peace Lutheran Church, 5675 Field St., Arvada. Photos by Crystal Anderson thought it’s reaching a different demographic our church may not reach otherwise,” Wegner said, “It’s spiritual, but it’s open and you’re welcome, just as you are.” Each week, around 10-20 people gather at one of two Lifetree Café’s offered Tuesday’s at Peace Lutheran Church to watch a free video presentation. The videos consist of interviews with people throughout the world who are
confronting different issues facing society today. Throughout each presentation, café guests sit, four to a table, and watch that week’s video. The presentation bounces between video and commentary, asking specific questions to attendees to help guide conversation among tablemates. “I like to think about these events, and this is a safe place where conversation is guided,

that helps us get way deep right away,” Wegner said. From hoarding, being wrongly accused to interviews on the paranormal and Christmas baking, Lifetree Café discusses relevant issues and offers attendees a place to share opinions, ideas and build relationships with others who attend. “I’ve met so many people I can give a high-five or a hello to,” Cullman said. “It’s definitely
a great way to get to know someone more than a ‘Hi, hey how’s the weather?”

Baby, now that was suspenseful Exhibit invites visitors to be scientists Mythbusters, based on TV show, opens at DMNS By Tammy Kranz
email@example.com With the clatter of dishes falling to the floor, people squealing as they run (or walk) through rain and the cheers of an audience as a volunteer dodges a paintball makes the newest exhibit at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science noisy and lively. Mythbusters: The Explosive Exhibition, based on the Discovery Channel’s show, opened at the museum on Oct. 11. The exhibit offers more than a dozen hands-on experiments and displays about the more popular myths featured on the show. “This exhibit has a lot of science behind it. It has everything to do with experimenting on your own and learn scientific processes,” said Brian Hostetler, an educator at the museum. “If you’re a fan of the show, you’ll love the props here.” Those props include the coffin from the episode that experimented if a person could survive being buried alive. The coffin has a large dent on its lid, caused by the weight of the dirt pushing down on it. The myth was “busted.” Another large prop, which is outside the actual exhibit, is the 400-pound mechanical shark, used by the show to prove or disprove if a person could poke a shark’s eye if it was thrashing around with that person on its mouth, distracting it so he can free himself. The myth was deemed “plausible.” The main attractions, and the noisiest,

Media madness or a pregnant pause, perhaps? Was KOSI radio/9News personality Denise Plante pulling a prank on thousands of Facebook friends when she posted a picture of a pregnancy-testing stick she allegedly used on Oct. 16? She let the drama play out as she posted evolving pictures of the stick as it was turning positive or negative. She even snagged 9News medical expert Dr. John Torres to witness the gag. “Am I pregnant? We will soon find out, Dr. John Torres from @9News is in the house!” Plante posted. The plot thickened with pictures of the stick as it revealed her pregnancy status. And the “results?” “Turns out, I’m just a moody momma. Not pregos ... good news for (husband) Michael Plante.”
Lakewood High to ‘Roar’
Congrats to Lakewood High School for winning the “Good Morning America” contest to have Katy Perry perform a song at their high school! More than 2,000 Lakewood High students lip-synched to Perry’s hit song, “Roar,” as part of the school’s video entry. Perry announced the winner on “Good Morning America” Oct. 18. “For me Lakewood really embodied a whole school spirit. You saw so many different people coming together to do one shot,” Perry said Friday. “It was so interesting and so well done.” Amazingly, the video was shot in one take and has been viewed on Vimeo more than 564,000 times and earned 246,000 views on YouTube. 7News first reported the news. Perry will perform at Lakewood High — the home of the Tigers (how’s that for some cosmic karma!) — on Oct. 25 and will be broadcast on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” Proceeds from the concert reportedly will go to the Colorado flood relief effort.

I’ve been back to Strings once since owner Noel Cunningham died. Since his wife, Tammy, opted to close the place (running a restaurant is not her thing) the building on 17th Avenue and Humboldt had stood like a monument to a time when the restaurant was frequented by celebrities from stage and screen, along with loyal locals. When it was announced that there would be new life stirring in that space with the occupation of Humboldt Farm — Fish — Wine, a Rock Bottom founder Frank Day project, I, for one, was happy to hear of the rebirth. Humboldt opened recently under the leadership of Concept Restaurants. “From the instant our guests walk in and have that ‘wow moment’ to the time they leave, we want to make sure their

This experiment is done in a 20-foot shed, with real water falling from the ceiling. “These experiments set the exhibit apart from other museum exhibits that have things behind the glass,” Hostetler said. “It’s very hands on, we invite experimentation. We encourage people to try and fail and
try again until they succeed.” The major experiments have introductory videos featuring the Mythbusters to explain a little more about the science behind the experiments. At the end of the exhibit, there is a live demonstration show where some audience members get to test their reaction time against a paintball gun (while wearing protective gear).

NORTHGLENN POLICE REPORT Theft: An officer was dispatched Oct. 10 to Sports Authority at 251 W. 104th Ave. in reference to a cold shoplift. An employee said two suspicious men came into the store and left six minutes later without buying anything. They then returned about an hour later and were seen around the front of the store where all the Bronco sports apparel is displayed. The suspects grabbed 15 to 20 Bronco starter jackets valued at $150 each and 10 Bronco jerseys valued at $250 each. The men then ran out the front and to a black Jeep Grand Cherokee with tinted windows and an unknown temporary tag. The employee said she could see that there was a woman driving. The first suspect is described as a bald, white man wearing a black and red jumpsuit. The second suspect is described as a thin Hispanic man wearing an Arizona Cardinals jersey and a black hat. First-degree trespassing, theft from vehicle: An officer was dispatched Oct. 13 to the 11400 block of Pearl Street in reference to a criminal trespass to a vehicle. A woman told the officer that while her car was parked in the 11800 block of Washington Street, someone got inside and stole a pack of cigarettes and a bottle containing 30 percocet pills. She said her window is broken and
can simply be pushed down. That is how she believes someone gained access. There is no suspect information. Second-degree tampering: An officer responded Oct. 14 to the 100 block of East 113th Place in reference to a cold criminal mischief report. A man said that someone egged his vehicle overnight, and that this was the third time within the last several weeks that one of his vehicles had been egged. There is no suspect information. Theft: An officer received an internet scam report Oct. 14 from a man and his daughter. The girl had been browsing Craigslist.com in search of a car. She found a posting that advertised one for $1,800, and replied to the post asking for more information on how to buy the car. She was directed to Ebaymotors, where a representative would contact her via email on how to purchase the car. She received an email from Ebay customer support stating she needed to send a moneygram payment of $1,800 to an address in Pennsylvania. She and her father made a moneygram transfer from Wal-Mart. The girl said she was unsure of how the money gram worked or where the payment was sent. She was supposed to receive the car on Oct. 12,
but had not received it yet, and tried to contact the woman who gave her payment instructions. She never got a reply. The officer explained to the girl and her father that people create fake Ebay customer support pages in an attempt to get people to send money to a legitimate source. The officer did an internet search of the number in this case and found the number posted in several online forums stating it is associated with a Craigslist scam. There is no suspect information. Second-degree burglary: An officer responded Oct. 15 to the 3400 block of East 105th Court in reference to a burglary. A woman said that someone used a chair in the back of her home to break into and climb through a window. The officer found the chair next to the window and the screen pulled back. Items stolen from inside her home were jewelry valued at $650, a $200 underwater camera and a jar filled with $100 in change. There is no suspect information. Items in the police reports are compiled from public information contained in police department records. Charges or citations listed don’t imply guilt or innocence, and all people are presumed innocent until proven guilty.

Shoplifting, dangerous weapon: A 27-year-old Broomfield man was arrested Oct. 13 at 5:06 p.m. after he tried to steal merchandise from Kmart at 1400 E. 104th Ave. A loss prevention officer saw the man take a bike pump valued at $18.99 and conceal it before trying to exit without paying for it. While he was being questioned, he was found to be in possession of illegal throwing stars and nunchucks. He was processed and later released on a summons.

rant: Officers were dispatched Oct. 13 at 9:45 p.m. to the 13100 block of Cook Court in reference to a disturbance with a bat. Officers contacted a 41-year-old Thornton man and his 45-year-old wife and learned that the two were in an argument when the husband pushed his wife and began swinging the bat, breaking $200 in household items. The man actually struck one of the children present when he was swinging it. The officers were able to determine the living environment for the children and, based on conditions, issued the woman a summons for child abuse. The man was taken into custody for all the above charges, processed and later transported to the Adams County jail. Items in the police reports are compiled from public information contained in police department records. Charges or citations listed don’t imply guilt or innocence, and all people are presumed innocent until proven guilty.

firstname.lastname@example.org The mission of the Hyland Hills Foundation is simple: promote and support the recreational and cultural opportunities of the residents of Hyland Hills. The volunteer-run foundation pays special attention to children in the district offering recreation and sports scholarships to children, free activities and the signature Be-A-Fish program, which offers free swim lessons to every child in the district. During the foundation’s annual Hy Five for Kids luncheon on Oct. 18, community members were reminded of the many services provided by the foundation and were encouraged to donate funds to continue on the many recreation scholarships that get children off of the street and into a fun, safe environment. For Federal Heights patrol officer Frank Turek, these scholarships make all the difference, not only for the children, but the police officers who work hard to keep the community safe. “Hyland Hills prevents crimes through the opportunities they provide for the chil-
dren in this community,” Turek said. “Kids find opportunities to do crimes and get into trouble. But if they have opportunities to do something productive, not destructive through these programs, that makes a difference.” Keynote speaker at the luncheon, Darren McKee, or D-Mac, co-host of the The Drive radio show, knows his fair share of sports, to say the least. The radio host talks all things sports during the weekday afternoons with his co-host Alfred “Big Al” Williams, a former Denver Bronco. During the luncheon McKee about the importance of sports in his life growing up and how sports can change the lives of many youth today. “All you coaches and volunteers, you are helping kids you don’t even know and whatever you face, keep your focus on what is best for the kids so those kids can grow up and be great people,” he said. “And when that kid comes over to you and smiles, and calls you coach, it’s all worth it.” The money raised during the luncheon will go to continuance of the scholarship program, the annual Hyland Hills Easter Egg Hunt, Putts for a Purpose, the Be-A-

Childhood of war and waiting “Year of the Jungle” by Suzanne Collins 2013, Scholastic $17.99 / $19.99 Canada 40 pages All day long, while you’re at school, you really miss your parents. But that’s okay. You know you’ll see them in a few hours or a few days, and it’ll be fun. You’ll get hugs and give kisses, make dinner together, and read stories. But some kids, though, they have to wait to see their mom or dad, and it might be a long time. In “Year of the Jungle” by Suzanne Collins, illustrated by James Proi-
mos, you’ll see why. Suzy, who was the youngest in her fam-
ily, loved when her dad read poems to her. She particularly liked the ones about a dragon because he was ‘the bravest of all.” The dragon was special, and so was everybody in Suzy’s family. But Suzy’s daddy had to go away for a while. She knew he was going to a place called Vietnam , and someone said he’d be “in the jungle.” Her dad would be gone for a year. That seemed like a long time. While he was gone, Suzy’s dad sent lots of postcards.
It was hard not to think about him after she saw a TV news report with explosions and hurt soldiers. That made her cry. He came home with gifts, but the best gift of all was having him home. Overall, this is a grown-up-kids book that I think may actually be comforting to children whose parents are in the military because it assures them that “most people come back.” And for that, “Year of the Jungle” is one that neither of you should miss.

GALLERY OF GAMES
ARIES (Mar 21 to Apr 19) A colleague might offer to open a door for you professionally. But before you walk through it, be sure this “favor” isn’t attached to an obligation you might find difficult to discharge. TAURUS (Apr 20 to May 20) Your creativity, your persistence and your reliability could lead to a major career shift. Be sure to use that other Taurean trait, your practicality, when discussing what the job offers. GEMINI (May 21 to Jun 20) A changing situation might require some adjustments you might not have been prepared to make. However, flexibility in this matter could be the best course to follow at this time. CANCER (Jun 21 to Jul 22) You’re in a period of fluctuating moods, which is not unusual for the Moon Child. Your emotions stabilize by the 25th. Meanwhile, try to hold off making major decisions until then. LEO (Jul 23 to Aug 22) That keen sense of perception helps you hunt down those minute details that others overlook. And, of course, your Leonine ego will accept the expected praise with good grace. VIRGO (Aug 23 to Sept 22) Be careful not to be confrontational when raising a work-related issue. Better to make a request than a demand. And, of course, be prepared to back up your case with facts. LIBRA (Sept 23 to Oct 22) Your ego might be hurt when a colleague turns down your offer to help. But accept it as a rejection of your offer, not of you. A friend from the past could re-emerge by week’s end. SCORPIO (Oct 23 to Nov 21) A flow of positive energy turns a work project you didn’t want to do into something you actually love doing. Now, take that attitude into your social, intimate life -- and enjoy what follows. SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 to Dec 21) Working hard to meet your professional goals is fine. But don’t neglect your private life, especially where it concerns your more cherished relationships. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) “Patience” remains the key word in dealing with an emotionally sensitive situation involving a close friend or family member. Help comes your way by week’s end. AQUARIUS (Jan 20 to Feb 18) With new information coming in, it’s a good time to rethink some of your goals without taking suggestions from others, no matter how well-meaning they might be. PISCES (Feb 19 to Mar 20) Making progress on your project is relatively easy in the early part of the week. A problem could arise midweek. But all goes swimmingly once it’s resolved. BORN THIS WEEK: Holding fast to your principles, no matter what, inspires others to follow your example. (c) 2013 King Features Synd., Inc.

Legacy softball captures sixth state title Legend beaten in championship game By Scott Stocker
email@example.com Legacy’s softball team built upon its legend in more ways than one last Saturday and Sunday in the Class 5A state softball tournament at the Aurora Sports Park. Legacy, coached by Dawn Gaffin, won its sixth state title over the past seven seasons as the Lightning defeated Parker’s Legend High School, 6-4, in the championship game. The Lightning had advanced to the final with a 5-3 victory against Brighton. The tournament was to have been played on Friday and Saturday, but Friday’s rains postponed the action to Saturday and Sunday. Legacy, seeded No. 5 in the field, opened with a 6-2 victory against Chatfield, then followed with an 8-1 quarterfinal win against Dakota Ridge. Legend opened it side of the tournament beating Grandview, 13-8, and Rock Canyon, 6-1, on Saturday. The Titans then beat Fossil Ridge, 9-4, on Sunday to advance to the championship game. It appeared Legacy had the championship locked up heading into the seventh inning against Legend with a 6-1 lead. But the Titans freshman, Karlee Arnold, unloaded with a three run homer to close the gap to the final score. Shania Leon and Jordan Sheard had come through with RBI hits in the bottom of the sixth which would eventually secure the win for Legacy. The pair also knocked in a pair of runs back in the fourth that had helped lift the Lightning to their 4-1 lead. An error by Legend’s shortstop Zoe Mihalica also to help account for two of the Legacy runs in the fourth allowing Leon and Celyn Whitt to score. In a way, it was a sigh of relief for Gaffin, who has coached the Lightning for the past 14 years. “It was great with the girls, just good citizens and good students,” Gaffin said. “They work hard. We only had two varsity starters back, so we had to fill a lot of positions that didn’t have a lot of varsity experience. We had to knuckle down and work hard with the youth.” Leon felt that all her team needed, beside herself, was to calm down. “I wanted to help everyone out,” Leon said. “I was nervous. I just wanted to let my memory take over on

That was the big thing for me.” It definitely was a good way to end the season, if not her career, for third baseman Kylie Bernard. “It’s just great that as a team we came through together,” Bernard said. “Our goal was to reach state and win and as it turned out, nothing stopped us. We worked together as a family. The key for me this season was to learn from all my mistakes and to go forward and do better.” Pitcher Haley Smith was more than pleased, as well, for the way the season ended. “We’ve come so far from the beginning of the sea-
son to where we are now and that’s made us so tough,” Smith said. “We had a lot of doubters and people that said we couldn’t do it and nobody was really worried about us. We were kind of the underdogs and we stepped up.” Memories, true, will always come from winning a state title. And for Taylor Brothers, who caught the final out in each of the games against Brighton and Legend, those two plays will be unforgettable. “Yes. I’ll always remember making those last outs,” Brothers said. “I just wanted to get to the balls. We just played our hearts out to win.” Jon E. Yunt contributed to this story.

Actor not aiming to make Harry Potter vanish By Tim Lammers
the coffin?’ All that stuff.” Radcliffe said he had no choice but the set the record straight, hopefully once and for all. “I was like, ‘Guys, I wouldn’t be sitting here in front of you if it wasn’t for those films. I love those films and I love the time I’ve had on them and what we achieved with them,’” Radcliffe said. While Radcliffe believes journalists’ observations of purposefully shedding the Potter role is misdirected, he says he at least understands where it’s coming from. “I do believe I get undue attention because I played one character for so long. I think it surprises people that I would want to do something different,” Radcliffe said. “It either surprises people or frankly — and I’m don’t mean to slander your profession — but sometimes I think it’s just an easier question to ask. I think it sort of becomes a ‘go-to’ question for everyone.” Radcliffe, of course, faced the same sort of gauntlet of questioning when at age 18 in 2007 he appeared full-frontal nude in “Equus” in London’s West End (before he brought the role to Broadway) — long before the “Harry Potter” film saga wrapped up. The actor said he knew the role was controversial, but since opportunities to work with theatre luminaries on a play like “Equus” don’t come up that often, he couldn’t pass it up. “Being offered the joint-lead in ‘Equus’ opposite Richard Griffiths, and directed by Thea Sharrock on the West End, you be insane to say no to that,” said Radcliffe in an exasperated tone. “To be offered that opportunity and back down from it would have been something I would have regretted for the rest of my life.” Radcliffe has plenty of projects in the hopper, which span across different genres.
Daniel Radcliffe wants to clear up a big misconception among fans and the media: He does not want to kill off Harry Potter with his role choices. In a phone call from the Toronto Film Festival in September, Radcliffe said there’s an assumption out there that he takes on risky roles like the young version iconic beat poet Allen Ginsberg in “Kill Your Darlings” as a way to break with the image of the boy wizard character. Instead, Radcliffe said, it’s much simple than that: He takes on roles like that because they’re great roles. “You’re the first person to have actually seen that it’s really not that complicated,” Radcliffe tells me. “It’s just about picking what I like. I’m in a really fortunate position where I’m in a financially secure position from Potter where I don’t have to do something unless I’m passionate and excited about it, and that’s how I pick my work.” The British actor, 24, says he’s faced quite an onslaught of negativity for his acting choices while doing press for “Kill Your Darlings,” which made its rounds at the Sundance and Venice film festivals before its stop in Toronto. Radcliffe has drawn particular attention for his work in the film because of an explicit love scene his character has in the film with another man. “In Venice, it was really interesting. All the European journalists were great interviewers and really fantastic, but whenever they asked that question about leaving Harry Potter behind, they always used such incredibly violent language,” Radcliffe recalled. “They’d ask things like, ‘Are you trying to destroy Harry? Is this the final knife in the back of Harry Potter? Is it the final nail in

A walk is a perfect time to combine science, reading, and quiet discussion to build vocabulary. Very young children can collect and sort leaves by size and color. Older children can collect and sort by type. Explain leaves make food for plants by collecting water from the roots and carbon dioxide gas from people and animals. With sunshine and a green chemical called chlorophyll leaves make sugar to feed the tree. This is called photosynthesis. As children collect, explain red and other colors are in leaves all year around, but the green chlorophyll covers them up. In fall there is less daylight so the leaves cannot make as much food. The leaves start shutting down and dying. Finally the leaves fall. Teach children the names and characteristics of leaves. How does a maple leaf look different from an oak or pine? Point out that oak tree seeds are acorns and maple seeds twirl around like helicopters. White pine trees conveniently have five needles or
leaves like letters in their name. Red pines have two needles. Look around for cones and examine seeds tucked inside. Most evergreen trees lose some of their needles and grow new ones.
What Else Can We Do?
Pull a leaf out of the collection bag. Can children find one that matches? Talk about the characteristics. Put two different leaves together. Children can take pictures of leaves with a camera or phone for a short family presentation about a walk in the woods. At home place the leaves under heavy books or place leaves in a magazine with something heavy on top to press for a day. The next day use a brush to paint the leaves with white glue on both sides and glue them on heavy paper. Glue the seeds, too. Cones can be glued on a cover. When dry, print the tree name or have children say a sentence about the leaf. Punch a hole in each page and tie with yarn or gift ribbon. Place tape around the hole to reinforce it.
