Accused hit-and-run driver pleads not guilty Kimberley Miller is charged in case stemming from last July BY TABATHA STEWART TSTEWART@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

A woman charged with hitting an 11-year-old boy with her SUV and leaving the scene last July near the intersection of Stonegate Parkway and Creekview Drive, near Parker, pleaded not guilty to charges Feb. 5. Kimberley Miller, who was 49 at the time of the Miller incident, was charged with failure to remain at the scene after an accident, failure to notify police, careless driving causing bodily harm and operating a motor vehicle with missing headlamps. She will appear in court again March 22. Miller is accused of striking a boy with her vehicle around 11:40 a.m.

July 25, causing serious injuries, including a fractured skull, and leaving the scene. Investigators issued an alert and were notified by a community member of a white Lexus matching the description. Douglas County deputies spotted the SUV driving on Ridgegate Parkway and South Peoria Street shortly after 8 p.m., and pulled Miller over for not having her headlights on. The deputy noticed the passengerside mirror had been repaired with duct tape and saw damage to the front passenger side. Miller allegedly told deputies she damaged the mirror while backing out of her garage, but didn’t remember when that had happened. She also said she couldn’t remember the name or place of an appointment she claims to have gone to earlier that day before the accident, authorities say. Miller was taken into custody and transported to the Douglas County jail. She posted bond and was released. A source close to the boy who was struck said he is recovering and doing well.

Metro area schools look to later start times Two of the largest districts consider making schedule shifts BY SHANNA FORTIER SFORTIER@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

TRAINING The Aurora-South Metro SBDC helps existing and new businesses grow and prosper through workshops and consulting.

Transportation schedules are one challenge that school districts must consider when weighing possible changes in start times. SHANNA FORTIER said Brian Ewert, superintendent of Littleton Public Schools. “The research is pretty clear about how much sleep adolescents should get, and more important is when they sleep.” According to Dr. Lisa Meltzer, National Jewish Health adolescent sleep expert, melatonin is a hormone released by the brain that controls the internal clock and prepares the body for sleeping. But during puberty, the

timing of the melatonin release is delayed by up to two hours. This makes it nearly impossible for teens to fall asleep early. This shift is also seen in the morning hours, showing that when a teen wakes at 6 a.m. that is equivalent of an adult waking at 4 a.m. An adolescent’s brain is biologically asleep at that time.

Research says that a later school start time positively impacts alertness, mental health, wellness and behavior in high school and middle school students, which means students are better prepared to learn. Some area school districts have already implemented later start times. Others, including the Jefferson County and Douglas County districts, are exploring the possibility of making the move. The most recent district to commit to the switch is Littleton Public Schools, whose board of education voted Dec. 14 for later school start times for middle and high school students beginning with the 2018-19 school year. The decision to change school start times followed months of research analysis, parent presentations and extensive opportunities for parent, student and staff input through public forums, open houses and surveys. “If we truly rely on what we believe is compelling scientific research, the question is: Why wouldn’t we do it?”

emy of Pediatrics recommends that middle and high schools delay start of classes to 8:30 a.m. or later. “Doing so will align school schedules to the biological sleep rhythms of adolescents, whose sleep-wake cycles begin to shift up to two hours later at the start of puberty,” the report reads. A National Sleep Foundation poll found 59 percent of sixth- through eighth-graders and 87 percent of high school students in the U.S. were getting less sleep than the recommended 8.5 to 9.5 hours of sleep on a school night. “Chronic sleep loss in children and adolescents is one of the most common — and easily flexible — public health issues in the U.S. today,” wrote pediatrician Judith Owens, in a policy statement from the American Academy of Pediatrics. A 2013 study by the Hanover Research Institute also found that “school districts could increase student safety and boost adolescent academic success by instituting later start times for middle and high school students.” “It was courageous because it does create hardships,” Ewert said of the Littleton board’s decision. “But I absolutely believe it was the right decision to make and I applaud the board for putting into perspective why we’re doing this.”

The Douglas County School Board’s decision to renew the charter contract of Hope Online Learning Academy received a standing ovation from dozens of parents and teachers in the audience at a Feb. 6 meeting. “When I look at Hope and my observation of the way our teachers and mentors interact with students and the students interact with them, I have two words to tell you about Hope, they are difference-makers,” Eric Peters, an employee of the school, said during public comment. The alternative school for at-risk students has an online program and 26 community learning centers across 12 school districts. The school opened in 2005 and Douglas County became its

authorizing district in 2007, allowing the school to operate independently but still receive state funding. Douglas County has one community learning center that serves 58 students. The majority of the school’s 2,172 students are from Aurora, Jefferson County and Denver. For the past seven years, Hope Online has been under watch by the Colorado Department of Education for low performance. Last April, school and district staff appeared before the state board of education to finalize an improvement plan, which outlines restructuring of the school’s learning model, recruiting quality educators and evaluating staff. The school’s performance ratings are grounds to revoke or not renew its charter contract, according to district documents. The school board voted to renew the contract until June 2019 to give Hope Online time to enact its latest improvement plan.

Using feedback from more than a dozen community meetings and an online survey, the Douglas County Board of Education has established the key characteristics it is looking for in a permanent superintendent. “We are so incredibly thankful to the 3,000-plus educators, administrators, support staff, parents, students, business leaders and non-parent community members who provided feedback by completing an online survey,” David Ray, president of the school board, said in a news release. “In addition, many others took time out of their busy schedules to attend community input meetings which were held across the school district last month. The outpouring of community support and input has been critical to our search process.” The school board has selected Ray and Associates, a school executive search firm based in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, to conduct the national search. Last year, Ray and Associates conducted a superintendent search for Jefferson County Public Schools and it is currently working with Boulder Valley School District to find its superintendent. The application process for the Douglas County superintendent position will close on March 12. Finalists will be identified in early April, according to the school district. In early January, interim Superintendent Erin Kane announced that she would apply for the permanent superintendent position. Kane was hired in 2016, at an annual salary of $240,000, after former superintendent Elizabeth Fagen resigned and took a position in the Humble Independent School

WHAT THEY’RE LOOKING FOR Per the school board, the permanent superintendent must meet the following 10 criteria: • Promotes a positive and professional environment that includes mutual trust and respect among district employees and the board. • Is strongly committed to a “student-first” philosophy in all decisions. • Possesses excellent people skills and can present a positive image of the district; is willing to listen to input and is a decision maker. • Inspires trust, has high levels of selfconfidence and optimism and models high standards of integrity and personal performance. • Has experience recruiting and maintaining exceptional staff for the district and schools. • Has experience as a classroom teacher or student support position in a school. • Is a strong communicator in speaking, listening and writing. • Has previous experience that will benefit the long-term financial health of the district, including successful experience in passing bond or mill levy increases. • Can develop and communicate a vision of quality education for the future of the board, staff and community. • Has knowledge of emerging research and best practice in the areas of curriculum/ instructional design and practice.

Colorado emergency responders provide disaster aid nationally Assignments offer increase in experience, assurance of assistance here if needed BY JESSICA GIBBS JGIBBS@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

When hurricanes make landfall or wildfires take off, and if earthquakes topple buildings or terrorists attack, it’s emergency responders who are tasked with protecting the public. In the event of large-scale emergencies, what unfolds is a multi-jurisdictional response drawing personnel from across the nation — including many from Colorado. Hurricane Irma, Hurricane Harvey and the Thomas and Lilac fires, two of the massive wildfires that plagued California in December and January, were just some of the most recent natural disasters to which Denver metro agencies deployed crews. It’s a call to action they’re happy to answer when the job is bigger than any one agency can handle, officials say, but there’s also a benefit to the local departments that respond. The first priority is offering aid in the form of manpower, equipment and other resources, agencies said. What they get in return is real-life experience and training they can use should a similar tragedy strike at home. Rod Tyus, a captain for West Metro Fire Rescue, also heads up the FEMAfunded Colorado Urban Search and Rescue Task Force, one of 28 task forces across the country that respond to local, state and national events. West Metro Fire Rescue sponsors the program in Colorado, which has more than 200 members from 23 agencies in the state. The task force had back-to-back deployments over the summer, first in Texas for Hurricane Harvey and then in Florida for Hurricane Irma. “We had over 100 members, close to 100 members deployed this past summer to hurricanes,” Tyus said. During Hurricane Irma, Eric Hurst of South Metro Fire Rescue deployed to an Air Force base in Georgia, although he was working as a communications unit leader for crews in Florida. His focus was making sure all the responders could communicate with one another. “There are various types of radios, as far as the frequency range, that they can talk on,” he said. “Where I was, my team was coordinating law enforcement resources from across the country. We had different federal agencies that were coming together for the first time.” Hurst can still recall his chilling two-day drive from Colorado to Georgia. As he traveled on a nearly empty southbound interstate toward the hurricane, the opposite lanes stood in a gridlock as locals attempted to evacuate. Pumps ran dry at gas stations, he said, and shelves were emptied of food. “As a responder going into a disaster

West Metro Fire Rescue shared this photo to its Facebook page of firefighters working near the Thomas Fire in California. you are part of the disaster, essentially. You are not immune from not being able to get fuel,” he said, describing the trip as eerie. “We take a lot of things for granted in our daily lives. That the gas station is going to have gas and the grocery store is going to have food.” Despite the challenges in deploying to emergency zones, Hurst said the trip was well worth the trouble because of the lessons he learned. Battling California blazes Lt. Patrick Richardson with Castle Rock Fire and Rescue said crews from their department spent three days working the Lilac Fire in San Diego before working 11 days on the notorious Thomas Fire. The Thomas Fire was the largest wildfire in California history, burning in Ventura and Santa Barbara counties. The U.S. Forest Service announced the blaze was 100 percent contained as of Jan. 12, more than a month after it began. What caused the Thomas Fire remains unknown, but before its end, it burned 281,893 acres, destroyed more than 1,063 structures and damaged 280 more. The Lilac Fire started three days after the Thomas Fire in San Diego County. It burned 4,100 acres, de-

stroyed 157 structures and damaged 64. Richardson, with more than 20 years of experience in wildland fires, described the Thomas Fire as the “largest, most complicated and most expensive” fire in the state’s history. “We were protecting homes that were in excess of $15 million apiece,” he said. The crews will have ample opportunity to use the skills they learned in the California fires along the Front Range, Richardson said, which he describes as notorious for its winddriven fires. “A lot of people will look at wildland fires here on the Front Range and say, ‘Oh, it’s just a grass or weed fire.’ But if you ask a rancher what’s out in that field, they see feed,” Richardson said. “We can save that landowner quite a bit of money and feed for his livestock.” That task is easier when firefighters have learned to stay calm and focused on the job through deploying to events like the Thomas or Lilac fires, he said. The Castle Rock team, like personnel from West Metro Fire and Rescue that also worked the Thomas and Lilac Fires, were assigned to what they call “mop up.” In essence, the job means cleaning up after the fire has

passed through an area to make sure it doesn’t reignite, or, working ahead of the fire to clear out fuel. “The vast majority of firefighting is not hero work. It’s dirty work. It’s grunt work,” Richardson said. Mike Johnston, an engineer with West Metro Fire Rescue, and Jonathan Ashford, a firefighter and paramedic with the agency, have both deployed to numerous natural disasters in the past, but each time, they learn something new. “It’s kind of mixed emotions,” Johnston said, “because we enjoy doing what we’re doing and you’re working hard and you’re sweaty and you’re dirty and you stink but you’re all doing it together. You have a huge feeling of accomplishment when you persevere through all of that.” Ashford said they learn something new each time they deploy, one more reason the trips are worthwhile. Overall, Tyus said, the system is reciprocal. Colorado agencies respond to other states’ emergencies knowing that the favor will be returned if there’s ever a local catastrophe, such as the Colorado floods in 2013. “We needed it in 2013, Texas needed it last year and Florida, and Puerto Rico needed it,” Tyus said. “It means a lot to be able to work with each other and be able to serve the nation and be able to help people in need.”

Parker police share innovation in technology Lecture at PACE Center educates residents BY TABATHA STEWART TSTEWART@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Have you ever wondered if the police officer in the car next to you is running your license plate? Or if the speed signs that show your speed actually work? Or if the officer giving you a ticket is recording you with a body-worn camera? Parker police public information specialists answered all of these questions during an adult lecture series at the PACE Center Feb. 7, during the Innovations in Police Technology lecture. Josh Hans, public relations coordinator, and Lt. Chris Peters with the Professional Standards Division presented the lecture, which was created to inform residents of technology used by the department. “This lecture tonight is about what we specifically use in Parker, and what’s of interest to Parker residents,” said Hans. “Our ability as a department to be nimble and make changes allows us to use technology and always be on the lookout for a better way to do things.” Hans introduced the audience to a decision simulator, a training tool used for officers that presents them with various situations, including traffic stops that go bad, active shooters, or a man just retrieving his wallet from his back pocket. Officers react to each situation, and supervisors can change the outcome of each scenario, so while the man may retrieve only his wallet one time, the next time it might be a gun. “This is vital in our training,” said Peters. “When an officer makes the wrong choice, they need to know immediately what went wrong. With the simulator, it’s safer to make mistakes than in real life.” Hans next answered the question on many people’s minds: Do officers run plates randomly? The answer: Sometimes. “We do have a few cars equipped with LPR’s or license plate readers,” said Hans. Cars equipped with LPR’s are circulated through the force and are equipped with several mounted cameras around the car. The cameras scan license plates of all cars around, and according to Hans, can find stolen cars, unregistered sex offenders and Amber Alerts. The information recorded can also be used after a crime has been committed, if the car happened to be within the vicinity of an LPR. “This allows the officer to focus on the road, and is mostly used as a crime prevention tool,” said Peters. “Joyriding is only a small reason people steal cars. Usually they steal cars to commit crimes.” E-citations are another way the department uses technology, and according to Peters, the information can be stored for future use, including warnings issued. Tickets are issued using an electronic hand-held device,

PARKER LECTURE SERIES The adult lecture series is presented by Parker Cultural and Scientific Commission, and covers topics of interest to residents of Douglas County. Lectures are held at the PACE Center. Lectures are sponsored by Parker Adventist Hospital. A full schedule and detail of lectures is available at http:// parkerarts.org/1837/Adult-Lecture-Series or call 303-805-6800. rather than a written citation. Officers can use the information to track trends and keep an eye out for repeat offenders. According to Hans and Peters, those speed signs placed in neighborhoods that register your speed and issue a “slow down” warning are effective for several reasons. “First of all, people do slow down when they see them,” said Hans. “Secondly, we are able to retain the information we need to effectively follow up. We may get a complaint about speeding in an area, and we could go there and sit all day, just to find out the speeding only occurs in the evening. With the data from the speed signs, we can determine when the best time is to patrol the area, based on speeding.” Peters presented the department’s policy on body-worn cameras, saying “this is a program we are 100 percent behind.” In fact, Parker has been recognized on a national level for its policy regarding body-worn cameras, which, according to Hans, is the direct result of Peters’ perseverance. Peters worked with the ACLU to establish a fair policy that allows officers and community members to be protected, without violating the rights of innocent people. “One of the concerns was should we be recording a victim when we are in-

If the apparent crime victim responds affirmatively, the enforcement member should immediately discontinue use of the BWC,” according to the policy. Peters said the department is in the process of getting a new system for records management and dispatch, to replace the current, outdated system.

The department is also planning to switch from the old app MyPD to a new mobile app that will be specific to Parker. Hans told attendees of the importance social media has come to play in law enforcement, improving communications between the department and residents. “It’s about getting the word out,” said Hans. “We now have a channel we’ve never had before, and it’s not just for bad news. We are very blessed to have a chief who is forwardthinking, and willing to embrace the technology that can help us do better.” Cindy Merritt attended the lecture, and said it was well worth her while. “I think this was great,” she said. “The information was good, and I’m happy they shared so much and in such depth. It gives you some pride in your police department, and personalizes them.”

The Douglas County Sheriff ’s Office set up a perimeter around the jail with assistance from the Castle Rock Police Department once Crocker was discovered missing, although a spokeswoman said there was never a concern about the alleged escape attempt being successful. “Due to the way the structure was built and the fact that the concrete walls extend beyond the ceiling we are confident there isn’t any way for a person to escape through the ceiling,” said Lauren Lekander, a spokeswoman for the sheriff ’s office. The sheriff ’s office did not want to disclose how Crocker got into the ceiling, “so we don’t give anyone else ideas,” Lekander said. Crocker was not harmed during the incident and was assessed by medical staff before being returned to a cell, according to the sheriff ’s office’s Twitter account. Lekander didn’t know how Crocker was discovered missing but said new charges for the incident were pending. She was not sure what those charges may be.

Fleece blankets will be cut and tied, while various stages of the quilting process are completed.

National Make a Blanket Day started in 1999, after the events that took place at Columbine High School, according to the Project Linus website. The group found that it was suddenly in need of a large number of blankets. Project Linus chapters put on “blanket bees” all over the country and then sent those blankets to local chapters in Denver. Because of the success of that effort, Project Linus learned that it had a national network of people who could help and decided to have an annual Make A Blanket Day. Each chapter could host activities to promote Project Linus and increase the group’s inventory of warm cuddly blankets. According to the Project Linus site, National Make A Blanket Day nets 75,000 to 100,000 blankets. For details, go to www.projectlinus. org/ or call Colette at 303-706-0442.

‘A game-changer’ While Ewert said the shift will create some challenges, such as additional childcare needed for some elementary students, changes to the athletics schedule and reorganization of the transportation schedule, he thinks these obstacles should not get in the way of “doing the right thing for our adolescents.” “This one absolutely is in the best interest of our kids,” Ewert said. “It wasn’t about adults, it was about kids.” Ewert was involved in shifting the school start times when he was the superintendent of Englewood Public Schools. Although the shift in Englewood five years ago was less about the research and more about being able to share staff between schools when the new

Englewood High campus was built, Ewert said after the first year they saw a positive impact on behavior, an increase in attendance and a decrease in tardiness. “I just think kids are more awake and ready to engage in learning,” said Wendy Rubin, superintendent of Englewood Public Schools. “I think that the research is irrefutable — teenagers need more rest … it impacts brain development, social and emotional health and academics.” Cherry Creek School District implemented later start times for their middle and high school students this school year. While Deputy Superintendent Scott Siegfried said half a year is too early to track performance, the district is participating in a study with National Jewish Health to track changes in their students. Siegfried said his district has seen better first-hour attendance and fewer behavioral problems. “This is truly a game-changer for kids and I would encourage anyone to

pay some serious attention to it,” he said. Pondering the shift Jefferson County Public Schools, Douglas County School District and Westminster Public Schools are all in the process of exploring later school start times for secondary students for future academic years. Westminster is in the early stages with what James Duffy, chief operating officer, referred to as creating draft proposals, policy discussions, internal vetting. Jeffco is a little further along as the district will be hosting a meeting in mid-February to put a community task force together to examine the issue. While Jeffco Superintendent Jason Glass said the brain science concerning sleep patterns for teenagers sparked this discussion, transportation issues offer challenges for a large district like Jeffco. “There is a significant impact on transportation in the district,” Glass

said, adding that traffic patterns and buses that run to multiple schools will need to be taken into account when working on a possible shift. “We time out to the minute how long we want buses to run,” Glass explained. “When you change something, it can have a cascading effect. It’s one of those things that we’ll have to look at.” Glass hopes the district can have a thoughtful discussion about the pros and cons of the issue. The final decision would be made by the school board. The research and changes that other districts have made also got Douglas County’s Board of Education to look at making a change. Staff is currently re-examining research and surveying stakeholders. Both the Douglas and Jeffco districts are not looking to make the possible change until the 2019-20 school year. “We want to go slowly, learn from our other districts before we jump in,” Douglas County School Board President David Ray said.

Community members with special needs get ‘Night to Shine’ More than 120 guests and nearly 300 volunteers turn out for event

came together for a night of pomp and paparazzi-like experiences. It was a familiar scene for Katherine Moore, 26, who has attended in recent years too. She came with her boyfriend, Stevie Lawson, 28 — they’ve been together for 12 years and went to Columbine High School. “They were king and queen of prom in 2010,” said Pam Moore, Katherine’s mother. She and Lawson’s mother, Alana Lawson, both from the Littleton area, know several parents with children with special needs in their community. “They absolutely love coming here,” Lawson said. Stevie Lawson said the music is his favorite part of the event, and he does a lot of dancing with Moore. Weston Block, 21, was a first-timer at the event, where more than 120 people with special needs — referred to as “champions” — and about 300

The Night to Shine event on Feb. 9, sponsored by the Tim Tebow Foundation, took place at more than 450 locations around the world to give people with special needs a prom-like experience.

Champions wore crowns and tiaras and walked down a red carpet against a backdrop of cheers and photography flashes before having dinner, doing activities like karaoke and, of course, having a good time on the dance floor.

People ages 14 and up could attend. Christine Caveney, a 27-year-old volunteer from Centennial, came with Block, for whom she’s a caretaker. Many of Block’s friends from from Heritage High School, where he graduated, attended the event, Caveney said. “He’s loving it,” Caveney said.

When death took a stranger, it claimed a much-needed friend

didn’t know Zackari Parrish. Not at all. I know I have needed men and QUIET women like him my DESPERATION entire life. Not because of the fact that he was a good deputy, but because he was someone with a good heart, and a bright light in a world that often goes deeply cruel on me. (I’m writing this in first person for a Craig Marshall reason.) Smith I read about the 5K run/walk at the Douglas County Fairgrounds, and saw a picture of Parrish’s

wife and read what she said and sat there on the couch and cried. By some design that I cannot explain, there have been just enough good examples in my life against the other kind, of which there are many (too many). People do unthinkable things to people. Now and then, in the middle of it, someone appears, like Parrish, and reminds me that life is worth living. There are times when I have thought otherwise. The morning I watched the Murrah Federal Building fall, and heard there was a daycare full of kids in it. What happened in Los Angeles, my Los Angeles, after the Rodney King verdict. The Turpin kids.

I have had my own moments with the Douglas County Sheriff ’s Office. Back in my own darker days. Every single man and woman I met was kind to me. “Jack,” wherever you are, thanks for being compassionate to a drunk. In some countries, all I see is hate and evil and genocide, and there are no Parrishes, or if there are, they are swiftly punished or executed. Syria now. Cambodia once. Uganda. I wish there were more good people in America than there are. Our freedoms come with a gift card for the bad guys. I’ll take it over repression. I read that Parrish “used humor to de-escalate tense situations.” I do the same thing, only I am the tense situation. I don’t mean I am over here on pins and needles. I mean that

life’s curve balls and sliders get to me, and that’s when I contact Mark, or watch W. C. Fields or read Steve Martin. Mark can turn almost any word into something else, just like Groucho, or take a couple of words and turn them into a brilliant, surreal, non-sequitur, like Steven Wright. I have a number of saved movies, and before I turn off the lights at night, I watch 10 minutes of one that I may have seen a hundred times. I don’t want to go to sleep — or try to go to sleep —with the news of the day on my mind. I watch the same scene in “Sullivan’s Travels” over and over. SEE SMITH, P13

KUMMER FROM PAGE 12

“Isn’t it about time?” to “Are we headed into recession?” The answer to both, in my opinion, is no. Markets don’t correct because of the calendar, and we are in the middle of a slow growth cycle, nowhere near the end of expansion. Let’s tackle the first one regarding the length of time we have been in recovery with virtually no volatility. When you look at the fundamentals of how stocks are priced it is clear to me that the upward trend is a response to double-digit corporate earnings and the potential for worldwide economic growth. Even though this recovery has been the longest on record, time in recovery is not a predictor of when it will end. The U.S. recovery has been slow due to the impact of global economies climbing back to good health. When

or a strategic plan, “encouragement” is a key element of my anticipated success. I look for family, friends, business partners, clients, co-workers, and associates at all levels to live and work in such a way that we are constantly encouraging one another. It is just too easy to go negative on someone or something. It is too easy to find the faults in a project or program. It’s only easy to go negative if we don’t live with and work with the full armor of hope and encouragement. How’s this for a question to ask your family, your company, or your organization: “Are we living and working with the spirit of hope and encouragement?” Now be truthful in your own response here as well, “Is my family, my business, or my organization living with the spirit of hope and encouragement?” How would you answer this question? How would others answer the question about you, your family, or your company? Would they see people who are life-lifters and encouragers, or would they see and feel a vibe of negativity? As Bruce Springsteen wrote in his song above, “Working on a Dream,” the way we achieve our goals and realize our dreams is when our love makes it real someday. We all have dreams, our family members have dreams, our

our recession ended in 2009, Europe was still two years away from dealing with possible defaults on debt in Greece and almost seven years away from the potential demise of the Eurozone. It would be mid-2017 before the elections in Europe after the Brexit indicated other countries were not going to vote in favor of leaving the European Union and follow the lead from the UK. Then the effects of the work of the European Central Bank (ECB) could take hold and create enough liquidity to stabilize the Union. Meanwhile the United States is tightening the money supply through rising interest rates. This caused a reaction from China in early 2016 when they devalued their currency, the yuan, throwing our markets into a brief downturn. Since then we have been enjoying nice upward trends with the rest of the world following suit. So that is a short primer on why the recovery is taking so long. Now, how does that help us determine when we would head into reces-

friends have dreams, our associates and co-workers have dreams. Our job, our responsibility to one another is to lift each other up, and open those doors of hope with positive encouragement and love. Anyone can go negative, that’s easy. But it is the difference-makers in life who fill their families, their communities, and this world with hope and encouragement. We all know someone very close to us who is working on a dream, don’t we? A dream to be cancer-free, a dream to beat addiction or have a loved one find sobriety, a dream to find a new job, a dream to start a new business, a dream for happy and healthy children, a dream of a loving and flourishing relationship, a dream of peace, and so many other dreams and goals. Let’s help them, let’s lift them up, let’s let our hope, encouragement, and love make it all real someday. So how about you? Are you working on a dream? Do you know someone who is? Are you filling them with hope, encouragement, and love? I would really love to hear your sources of motivation and inspiration at gotonorton@ gmail.com. And when we let the doors of hope swing open wide on the hinges of encouragement and love, it really will be a better than good week.

sion again? It is important to understand where we are in the economic expansion cycle before we can determine how fast this cycle will come to an end. According to Fritz Meyer, economist, “Bull markets end when the yield curve inverts. That’s not happened, and it may not happen anytime soon. The economy is strong. But key fundamentals are changing.” He goes on to state that this change brings opportunity. According to William Greiner, CFA and chief investment strategist with Mariner Wealth Advisors, the market drawdown is being driven by three main fears: rising inflation; higher interest rates; and fear that the Fed may make a mistake. Any one of these could cause continued market volatility and we are currently facing all three. Consumers have been spoiled by low inflation and investors have come to expect continued increases in their investment accounts. Both of these

conditions are showing signs of aging. It is important to align yourself with a good strategy for navigating the changes in taxes, economic expansion, the rise of inflation and interest rates. The right kind of diversification is extremely important in this environment. You deserve to have a guide to help you traverse these changes rather than piecing together information from the media. They don’t know you. Find someone who is willing to learn about your fears and goals and help you make good decisions. * Bloomberg Patricia Kummer has been certified financial planner for 31 years and is president of Kummer Financial Strategies LLC, a Registered Investment Advisor in Highlands Ranch.

here’s no accounting for the twists and turns that bring creative people together, but the first meeting of filmmakers Haley Thompson and Tomas Zuccareno was all too fitting, in light of the work they would end up doing together — they meet at The Local Food Convergence in Aspen back in early 2016. “We both wanted to make a movie about the next generation of farming, and sustainable and healthy food,” Zuccareno remembers. “We both recognized there was a problem in the farming communities we came from — that young people weren’t getting the support they needed to do this important work.” Now, after two years of filming and editing, the pair are ready for the world premiere of their first film, “How We Grow,” which will take place at the 12th annual Colorado Environmental Film Festival.

IF YOU GO WHAT: Colorado Environmental Film Festival WHERE: American Mountaineering Center 710 10th St., Golden WHEN: Feb. 22 through 24 COST: Tickets range in price from $8 per person for a single film screening session to $50 per person for access to all film screening sessions all three days of the festival. TICKETS: www.ceff.net The festival runs from Feb. 22 through 24 at Golden’s American Mountaineering Center, 710 10th St. About 56 films will be shown, some shorts and others closer to feature length, all of which are aimed at raising awareness of interconnected ecological, social and economic themes. International and local filmmakers will be represented. “Colorado is such a great place to host a festival like this, not only because of how active residents are, but because so many people are invested in protecting the environment,” said Nicole Bickford, festival director. “We want to show films that bring light to environmental issues, but also offer solutions and hope for the future.” SEE FILM, P16

he Denver home of violinist and jazz musician George Morrison was always filled with music, as his granddaughter Trudi Morrison remembers it. That music was not only from the students who received lessons at the house, but from the COMING jazz luminaries who ATTRACTIONS stopped in — figures like Duke Ellington, Nat King Cole and Jelly Roll Morton. “Denver was strictly segregated at the time, so touring musicians weren’t able to stay at the hotels. Instead, they stayed with us at Clarke Reader Big Daddy and Big Mommy’s house,” Morrison said. “Everyone knew who he was, and they still remember him. He was like Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny, all rolled into one.” Morrison (1891-1974) made his first violin from a corn stalk, a piece of wood, and some string, and first played publicly with his brother in mining camps in the mountains west of Boulder. He married in 1911 and started “George Morrison and his Jazz Orchestra,” one of Denver’s first jazz orchestras. In 1920, he played a command performance in London for King George and Queen Mary. To celebrate Morrison and other visionaries of African-American musical and cultural history, the Arvada Center, 6901 Wadsworth Blvd., is hosting The Legacy Show at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 24. The multimedia musical experience is anchored by music of African-American composers performed by violinist Tami Lee Hughes and pianist Byron Burford-Phearse. The program features classical music infused with a variety of styles, including spirituals, blues, gospel, hip-hop, and jazz. Portraying cultural themes of the Antebellum Period, the Harlem Renaissance, the Civil Rights Era, and Modern Times, the program includes poetry and visual media projected onto a large screen, providing images of people and places thematically related to the music. “As a classically trained violinist, I love traditional repertoire, but the music featured in the show is a fusion of all of the styles I heard growing up in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, including classical, jazz, gospel, spirituals, and blues,” said Hughes, whose artistic direction of the show is an extension of her debut solo recording. “As I researched music of African-American composers, I found a treasure trove of pieces rarely heard on the concert stage.

Garrett Ammon, choreographer/ director of Wonderbound contemporary dance company, has again collaborated with the Denver psychedelic folk band Chimney Choir — the companies previously produced the popular “Boomtown” — to produce a new artistic creation: “Aphrodite’s Switchboard,” which appears in three area theaters to herald spring, Valentine messages and looks at assorted human relationships. Described as “a full length evening of theatrical dance,” it features the company’s remarkable dancers and music compiled in a new album that features folk harmonies and instrumental melodies to create a landscape for masterful storytelling, in conjunction with the versatile band. That earthly landscape, set in the 1930s era, looks dreary to the gods on Mount Olympus, so they send Aphrodite, goddess of love, desire and beauty — accompanied by Hermes (messenger of the gods and sometime trickster, with winged feet and helmet) — to bring love back to the world. The goddess soon finds a job as a switchboard operator and begins to connect people — with varying results. Ammon said the new project “pushed all of us into new territory while exploring themes that have captivated humanity through the ages.” The band’s Kevin Larkin speaks of “new composition techniques and orchestration.” A cabin in Fairplay offered the musicians an opportunity to create new music, away from city distractions. An exploration of conveying ancient mythological tales with contemporary music offered

new experiences — and the first band production with Greek mythology as source. Formerly known as Ballet Nouveau, Wonderbound’s company began to change with Ammon’s arrival in 2007 — and his penchant for using live music. In 2012, the name Wonderbound and a symbol of a jumping red hare were adopted and the company moved its headquarters to Denver from Broomfield. (Check the website for announcements of performances and open rehearsals in this urban studio.) Chimney Choir began in 2011 with guitar, banjo, mandolin and suitcase drum and have toured nationally, while developing “layers of electronics, live looping and percussion. They remain fascinated with folk music and traditions while they constantly evolve and experiment …”

in the West and what changes we can expect in the future,” Zelikova explained. “The idea came from my own research on the impacts of dust on snowpack in the Snowy Range mountains in Wyoming.” Many filmmakers, like Thompson and Zuccareno, will be on hand for their screenings, and available for discussions and meetings afterwards. In “How We Grow,” which premieres at 7:30 p.m. on Feb. 23, Thompson and Zuccareno take a look at ambitious young farmers building community around locally grown food in the Roaring Fork Valley of Western Colorado. It examines the characters and systems of farming through the themes of education, legislation, community, food access and micro-finance — in order to tell the story of how these farmers are able to create resilient food systems. “There’s a lot stacked against these farmers and their communities,” Thompson said. “We hope the response to the film is that people are inspired to get their hands in the dirt

The free opening night event, beginning at 5:30 p.m. on Feb. 22, will include a reception featuring light appetizers, drinks, opportunities to interact with local businesses and a special silent auction benefiting CEFF programs. Afterward, there will be a screening of the film “Chasing Coral” and awards ceremony, hosted by local activist and filmmaker (and former mayor of Golden) Jacob Smith. Over the following days, films on a variety of subjects — ranging from deforestation and ocean health to wolves and, in the case of Jane Zelikova’s film, “End of Snow,” the effects of climate change on snowpack in the Western United States — will be shown. It premieres during the 7 to 9 p.m. session on Feb. 24. “The film follows me, a climate change scientist, as I go on a journey to learn how snowpack is changing

and start working.” For Zelikova, film is a way to bring the global challenge of climate change to people in a realistic, moving way. Stories help people connect to ideas and inspire them to tackle challenges, she added. “As much as it feels overwhelming, there are solutions we can implement today, solutions that don’t require a breakthrough invention or new technology,” she said. “These solutions come from people who want to be good stewards of their land and manage in a sustainable way, in the process helping fight climate change.” It would be easy for the films shown in the festival to be all doom and gloom, but Bickford said that’s why CEFF focuses on films that inspire, as well as inform. “We’ve found that a festival atmosphere like this is great, because people really love to gather and talk about solutions after they see these kinds of movies,” she said. “We want people to walk away empowered and know that they want to get involved.”

Jane Zelikova’s film, ‘End of Snow,’ explores the effects of climate change on snowpack in the western U.S., and will be shown Feb. 24 at the Colorado Environmental Film Festival, during the 7-9 p.m. session. COURTESY PHOTO

“Through The Legacy Show, I hope to share some of these works and celebrate the composers who have left a rich legacy through music we can all enjoy,” Hughes continued. In addition to Morrison, the performance will feature music from Duke Ellington, David Baker, Daniel Roumain, Kerwin Young, and more. But for this Denver-based crowd, Morrison’s work will be the most personal to hear. Which is something his granddaughter understands perfectly. “We have a family history of breaking racial barriers, and we all stand of the shoulders of those who came before us,” she said. “Big Daddy’s story is one of striving and thriving in a time of deep-rooted segregation.” Hughes did plenty of research when putting on The Legacy Show, and she hopes concert-goers learn about the voices and styles of music from different generations and backgrounds. “The show is for everyone, but I especially like to see young people in the audience. There is distance between them and a lot of the history in the show, so the performance gives them context for understanding complex issues we are dealing with today,” she said. “I hope The Legacy Show inspires great conversations, including talks between people of different generations.” For tickets and more information, visit www.arvadacenter.org/the-legacy-show.

Learn curling as the Olympics take over your screens With the Winter Olympics in full swing, viewers may well be inspired to try out a new sport after seeing some of the world’s best athlete’s competing. For those who see the broom-and-iceand-stone sport of curling and want to give it a try, the Denver Curling Club will host an open house and dropin learning classes on from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and 7-9 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 17, and from 2-4 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 18, at the club’s headquarters, 14100 W. Seventh Ave. in Golden. Visitors can learn about throwers and how they practice their deliveries (also called pitches or throws), and sweepers, who use brooms to sweep the ice. Visitors are encouraged to hang out, enjoy the Olympics on television, see curlers in action, and talk to members about our adult leagues and junior programs — all children must bring a helmet of any kind to wear. For the drop-in classes, they last 30 minutes on the ice with instruction and a free nonalcoholic drink for $20. For more information, email curldenver@denvercurlingclub.com, call 303-321-1107, or visit www.DenverCurlingClub.com. Clarke’s Concert of the Week - Majid Jordan at the Gothic Canadian R&B duo Majid Jordan, made up of Majid Al Maskati and Jordan Ullman, have provided plenty of backing vocals for more well-known artists like Drake, but they took their skills to a whole new level on their sophomore album, “The Space Between.”

Now Majid Jordan will take the stage at Englewood’s Gothic Theatre, 3263 S. Broadway, at 9 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 18. “The Space Between” is easily one of the year’s sexiest albums, but it explores all aspects of romantic relationships, including moving on from old loves to the fickleness of contemporary relationships. “One I Want” is one of the best singles of the year, and “Gave Your Love Away” shows the pair’s vocal range. While Majid Jordan is obviously heavily influenced by modern soul artists like Frank Ocean and Miguel, they add flourishes of electronic music that are all their own. Seeing and hearing how they translate all of this to the stage makes the show this week’s can’t-miss concert. To get tickets, visit www.gothictheatre.com. Life is a cabaret with the Denver Chorale The Denver Chorale is preparing to bring the laughs to audiences for its annual spring cabaret performance at the “Make ‘Em Laugh” Cabaret at Dazzle Jazz, 1512 Curtis St. in Denver, at 6 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 18. The cabaret will feature a special guest performance by Third Kind Improv, which is the resident improv troupe for the Human, Kind Theater Project. From musicals to pop, every song choice will be performed by a talented member (or group) of the Denver Chorale, and is designed to have the audience rolling in the aisles. The chorale is a group of singers from throughout the metro area, and is led by founder and artistic director Valerie Montaño, a veteran music teacher. The group advocates the virtues of music, espe-

cially its healing power and guiding contribution to social movements. There will also be a silent auction with the opportunity to bid on meals, theater tickets, original artwork, handcrafted items, overflowing themed gift baskets and more. To learn more, visit denverchorale.org. Turn up for Buffalo Bill’s birthday Many people in Golden and beyond are aware of the big Buffalo Bill Days festival the city throws every summer. That’s some ways away, but those looking for a taste of the Old West can get their fix at the man’s birthday party. The free Buffalo Bill Birthday Party will be from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 24, at The Rock Rest, 16005 Mount Vernon Road in Golden. There will be hundreds of reenactors from all around the region celebrating William Frederick “Buffalo Bill” Cody’s birthday. Visitors can take a shot in one of the free outfits contests for a chance of winning cash and/or prizes from top artists and photographers. National bestselling author Reid Lance Rosenthal will be there selling and signing his books along with local authors Leslee Breene and Sam Pisciotta. Local favorites Timothy P. and Friends will perform, and there will also be free birthday cake and door prizes. For more information on the party, visit www.buffalobilldays.com.

VICTORY ON THE LINE

L

Ponderosa freshman guard Liberty Line prepares to shoot one of her free throws in the closing minutes of the Mustangs’ 50-44 non-league girls basketball victory over Skyview on Feb. 8. The Mustangs trailed 44-42, but Line scored six of Ponderosa’s last eight points during the final 1:15 of the game and assisted on the other basket. She sank four consecutive free throws down the stretch and finished with 21 points. JIM BENTON

ittle things can make a big difference in a basketball game and in life. Rock Canyon girls basketball coach Becky Mudd followed up on a good idea of creating a personal challenge for her players, and the game against Legend on Feb. 6 was designated OVERTIME the Small Actions-Big Changes game. Each girl selected a cause, person, family or group to play the game in honor of. The girls then had to commit to do a small action to support the person/cause they Jim Benton selected. Sophomore Molly McEowen played for Alzheimer’s awareness, a disease that touches a lot of people, including her grandfather. For her action, she gave up eating lunch for a week and donated the money to Alzheimer’s research. Sophia Kozmata’s grandmother passed away from Parkinson’s disease, so Kozmata played for Parkinson’s awareness and wore colored laces. The senior forward shared what basketball meant to the family as they suffered with the disease. Saving animals from puppy mills was the selected cause for sophomore guard Dana Weiss, who is a vegetarian to support animals and is vocal about the mistreatment of animals. Several players got pledges for points, wrote cards and letters to people, did random acts of kindness, made donations, and wore special colored gear. All shared their stories with the team about their causes, such as Charity H2O, breast cancer awareness, diabetes, pediatric cancer, the American Heart Association, pancreatic cancer, Dr. Jill Pechacek 29:11 Challenge, Make-A-Wish and the Pine Ridge Reservation.

m Talking football b Dave Logan and Ed McCaffrey l worked five seasons together broadn casting Denver Broncos football games t on the radio as the play-by-play announcer and the analyst, respectively. h I’m sure they probably talked a little h about high school football, since Logan s is the coach at Cherry Creek and three o c of McCaffrey’s four sons played for Valor Christian against Creek during c t that time. McCaffrey, who gave up his analyst h o duties last season, is now the head football coach at Valor. So once again m Logan and McCaffrey will be talking S high school football. SEE BENTON, P25

On campus:

News and notes from local high school sports programs

Chaparral • The first-year hockey team entered the last week of the regular season with a 12-5-1 overall record and sat third in the Pinnacle Conference standings. The Wolverines were 11th in the RPI standings, which should give them a decent seed in the state playoffs, which begin

Feb. 20 • The boys basketball team was dropped to third in the Feb. 12 CHSAANow. com Class 5A rankings after spending a week as the top-ranked team. Two other Continental League teams, Rock Canyon and ThunderRidge, have also been the No. 1 ranked teams this season.

Legend • Senior Cade Fries was crowned the 182-pound champion Feb. 10 at the Class 5A Region 2 state qualifying wrestling tournament. He will enter the Feb. 15-17 state tournament with a 24-10 record. • The boys basketball team, with regular-season-ending

games against Heritage and Ponderosa, was hoping to advance to the state playoffs with a possible 13 wins. RPI standings will be used to qualify teams that are not the eight league champions. The Titans were in playoff shape, 17th in the RPI standings, but a lot of changes develop in a week.

Lutheran • The girls basketball team, unbeaten in the 3A Metro League with a 9-0 ledger, had at least a share of the league title secured when it faced St. Mary’s Academy on Feb. 13. The Lions wrap up the regular season at home with

a non-league game against Sterling on Feb. 16. • The boys team sealed the 3A Metro League title with a 9-0 record and ends the season with non-league games against St. Mary’s (Colorado Springs) on Feb. 15 and at Sterling on Feb. 16.

Ponderosa • There will be four Mustangs regional wrestling champions competing in the Class 5A wrestling tournament Feb. 15-17 at the Pepsi Center. Senior Parker Benekas, a 170-pounder, 182-pound senior Tate Samuelson, 195-pound senior Jayden Woodruff and junior 285-pounder Cohlton Schultz, a two-time defending champion, won Region 4 state qualifying tourna-

ments. Schultz is 46-0 this season. • The girls basketball team, coming off a 50-44 non-league win over Skyview on Feb. 8, took it on the chin against 5A top-ranked Regis Jesuit on Feb. 9 and lost a 100-28 decision. The Mustangs trailed by 42 points at half. It didn’t get much better in the second half but freshman Liberty Line managed to score 19 of the team’s points.

BENTON FROM PAGE 24

“Dave was a great inspiration to me,” said McCaffrey. “I watched somebody I respect who played at a high level and is one of the best in the business at broadcasting, yet he still has the passion while coaching football. “He’s had unbelievable success in his high school coaching. It’s because he loves what he is doing. I love this sport too and love coaching it. He kind of paved the way. He showed me you could have a family, have a profession, coach high school football and do the things you want to do. When I watch him coaching, meeting with coaches or drawing up plays, he is a happy man. He showed me this can be done.” Skill competition in ice hockey I recall a few of the first high school hockey games I witnessed a few

decades ago. It was like watching the movie “Slap Shot,” where players resorted to playing a violent style to become popular. There wasn’t much attention paid to hockey. Most of the interest for the players and spectators centered around physical play on the ice, which often carried over off the ice by fans after the games. Times have changed and the skill level of high school hockey players is better. “High school hockey is getting better and better by leaps and bounds,” said former University of Denver coach George Gwozdecky, who is now the Valor Christian head hockey coach. “Of course you have your programs that are developing a little slower than other programs. “More and more kids are starting to move towards high school hockey for many reasons, and as a result it is getting more competitive. Rosters on the varsity teams are getting deeper.
