Parker Mainstreet project moves toward more detail More than 700 residents shared their opinions on what to do with land BY TABATHA STEWART TSTEWART@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Restaurants, breweries and smallscale retail shops are what more than 700 Parker residents have said they would like to see be developed on four empty lots along the Mainstreet area. Residents weighed in on the My Mainstreet project via an online questionnaire on the Let’s Talk Parker website, during phase one of the development project. Mixed-use developments such as office, retail and residential space, and hotels, were voted least desirable. Partnering for Parker’s Progress, or P3, asked for input in March as the first phase of the development process. The land includes a lot in front of the PACE Center, one just west of the Parker Library and Discovery Park, and two starting from the east end of Victorian Drive on Mainstreet to where Mainstreet ends on the eastern side. Prior plans presented to the town had not been viable, according to Weldy Feazell, redevelopment manager for P3. “The land was purchased to develop by the town,” said Feazell “We have gone through several iterations with

developers, and those just didn’t go through for varying reasons. Some of that was because of public input in opposition of the project, and the feeling they weren’t involved in the process.” The online questionnaire, public outreach and presentations through town hall meetings have given P3 an idea of what Parker residents want, and the project is moving into phase two, which is to refine the community vision and values. “We’ve heard a lot about people liking downtown Castle Rock, Littleton or Fort Collins,” said Feazell. “Our next process is to get a better idea of what residents’ visual preferences are. Parks and open spaces were also a request, and we realize that outdoor

spaces mean something different to all of us. We’ve posted some pictures on the website to see if that can help frame the conversation.” Feazell said the photos are not renderings of what the spaces will look like, but merely a visual to get people thinking about how they want the spaces to look. Part of the survey included a fill-in-the-blank question titled Big Ideas. Nearly 1,400 residents expressed their thoughts and concerns about the project. “We’re pretty proud of the response we got,” said Feazell. “Some of the respondents told us what kind of restaurants they would like, concerns about traffic. A handful of people didn’t want the sites developed at all,

and quite a few wanted to make sure there are open spaces within whatever is developed. There were a lot of requests for outdoor seating, benches, greenery, and maintaining the existing downtown feel where people are hanging out.” Parker resident Tom Rodit, said he doesn’t like all the development in Parker, but appreciates that P3 is asking for community input. “Parker has grown so much, and I can’t say I like everything that has been built,” said Rodit. “But at least they’re asking what we want to see. We might be able to get something better than another storage facility or more apartments.” Parker Mayor Mike Waid said he encourages residents to take part in the survey and help shape the future landscape of Parker. “The Town of Parker knows that simply meeting the minimum requirements of public notification and engagement is not sufficient for making informed decisions in the public interest,” said Waid. “Parker is committed to engaging the community in a meaningful and effective way. Through robust public engagement, we encourage Parker residents to become more involved and take an active role in shaping the future of their community.” Comments on phase two of the My Mainstreet project can be submitted through June at www.letstalkparker. org/my-mainstreet.

An educational program that offers older adults the opportunity to check how well their personal vehicles fit them returns again this summer. CarFit events bring trained technicians to work with drivers to make small adjustments to basic things such as proper settings for their side mirrors and seat positioning. These adjustments can make a big difference in a driver’s comfort and help them project them and those around them. CarFit is offered by Reaching Older Adult Drivers (ROAD) and a number of partners in the Denver metro area. It was created by the American Society on Aging and developed in collaboration with AAA, AARP and the American Occupational Therapy Association. The 20-minute checkups are free, and registration is preferred. CarFit appointments are offered: May 23, 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., Thornton Active Adult Center, 9471 Dorothy Blvd., Thornton; June 20, 9-11 a.m., Cook Park Recreation Center, 7100 Cherry Creek Drive South, Denver;

ROAD was formed in response to research indicating that aging drivers will drive more and longer than any generation in history, according to a news release. It is funded by the National Highway Safety Administration and administered by the Colorado Department of Transportation. Older drivers are often the safest drivers in that they are more likely to wear seat belts and less likely to speed or drive while intoxicate, the release says. However, older drivers are more likely to be killed or seriously injured when a crash does occur because of the greater fragility of their aging bodies.

Student stress levels can spike in May Transition time heightens anxiety for some, experts say BY DAVID GILBERT DGILBERT@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Children’s mental health care providers say students’ mental health can take a dive in May, as end-of-the-school-year stresses weigh on them. DAVID GILBERT

Remember the feeling of freedom on the last day of school? Not every student feels it. Children’s mental health care providers see a spike in visits from teens in May, said Emily Laux, a licensed clinical psychologist at Children’s Hospital in Denver.

the school year to summer as a shock to the system of some kids. “Times of big transition carry additional stress,” Laux said. “For most kids the transition to summer is something that’s fun and exciting, but for others they’re losing connection to where they’ve spent the last eight months. For those who aren’t driving yet or aren’t as independent, they might feel disconnected from friends or activities or teachers who are important to them.” End-of-the-year academic pressures can weigh on kids too, Laux said, particularly in an age of increasing demands on children’s time and school performance. “There’s an adult element that society in general needs to look at: What are we expecting of kids and is it reasonable?” Laux said. “Might there be negative impacts of a highperforming, high-pressure society?”

w Symptoms of stress t End-of-the-school-year stresses can t manifest many different ways, Laux s said. a “We often see a reduction in distress tolerance,” Laux said. “We see an in- t crease in worry and anxiety, or maybe s a refusal to attend school, increased h isolation, or even self-harm.” Younger kids might lash out more by throwing tantrums, while older kids are more likely to internalize their distress, Laux said. Kids experiencing end-of-the-year stress would do well to engage their support networks, Laux said, and might benefit from adult guidance in breaking down what might feel like insurmountable problems like heavy workloads. Structured activities can be a blessing or a curse, she said. “Keep activities that bring pleasure and joy,” Laux said. “For instance, softball might be incredibly important, if it adds something to a kid’s week and gives them an outlet and (a way to) stay connected. But think about reducing some unnecessary ones. Kids tend to be involved in a lot of activities. It’s worth taking a look at which of those are necessary and important and which can be let go.” Parents are vital for responding to end-of-the-year stress, Laux said. “Keep channels of communication as open as possible,” Laux said. “Be open and available so your kids can come to you. You can put feelers out: you might say, ‘I remember in high school that wrapping up high school can be stressful. How are you managing that?’ Even if they don’t respond in the moment, it plants a seed that you’ll hear them out. If kid says they’re in crisis, be mindful of your own reaction in that situation. A kid disclosing that going to be hypervigilant for your response. Be supportive, empathetic, but pragmatic.” SEE STRESS, P8

Plane crash in northern Douglas County leaves 1 dead Authorities say aircraft made a ‘high-speed impact’ with the ground STAFF REPORT

One person was killed after a small plane crashed in a residential area of northern Douglas County, east of I-25, the night of May 11. The Douglas County Coroner’s Office identified the pilot of the plane as Robert D. Marquis, 67, of Glade Park, which is west of Grand Junction. He was flying solo. The plane, a Cirrus SR22, went down near RidgeGate Parkway and Pastel Point, an area between Lone Tree and Parker, just west of the Stepping Stone neighborhood. Debris was spread over more than an acre in the vacant field, only several hundred yards from homes, and two blocks from a community park, swimming pool and popular walking trail that wound around the crash area. Resident Baylor Bland was home with his famiy, windows open to enjoy the fresh air, when he heard what he thought was the loud whining and shifting of a motorcycle speeding at abut 8:30 p.m. “It sounded like a (motorcycle) — I thought it was over at Ridge Gate,” said Bland. “Then all of a sudden, I heard a loud thump, and it sounded

The engine of an SR22 plane that crashed around 8:30 p.m. May 11 was propelled several yards and embedded into a home near the crash site just west of the Stepping Stone neighborhood.

I didn’t really think it could be a plane, because we have so many coming over here that it didn’t seem possible.” The crash, which South Metro Fire Rescue described as a “high-speed impact,” threw a chunk of the engine,

approximately 3 feet long, into the side of a home several hundred yards away, where it was embedded several inches between two windows. None of the neighborhood’s residents were injured. “I don’t know if the pilot was trying to miss the houses, but we were so

lucky,” said Bland. “It’s only a couple hundred yards from hitting all of these houses.” The plane had recently taken off from nearby Centennial Airport, according to authorities. Personnel from South Metro, the Lone Tree Police Department, the Douglas County Sheriff ’s Office, the Parker Police Department, Centennial Airport and the National Transportation Safety Board were on scene after the crash, according to a City of Lone Tree spokeswoman. The Cirrus SR22 has a wingspan of about 38 feet and is 26 feet in length, according to cirrusaircraft.com.

Fun focuses on forest’s future Pine Lane Elementary students raise funds at carnival to help Amazon BY TABATHA STEWART TSTEWART@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

I

f Pine Lane Elementary student Finn Saunders, 11, had his way, no more lumberjacks would be allowed to cut trees in the Amazon rainforest. But, since Saunders lives more than 4,000 miles away from the Amazon, and is just a kid living in Parker, he has no say in the matter. That didn’t stop him from doing his part to help the rainforest during the school’s May 9 carnival, which raised money that will be donated to help stop the devastation of the Amazon. Saunders created a game called Lumberjack Attack, which other students paid to play during the carnival. Like an old-fashioned carnival game, Saunders created cardboard silhouettes of lumberjacks, and players had five seconds to knock down as many as they could using ping-pong balls. “I liked Lumberjack Attack,” said Saunders. “You can take lumberjacks out of the rainforest.” Students in grades four through six in the school’s Discovery program were tasked with creating games for the student-driven carnival. Fellow students purchased tickets to play the games, and all proceeds will

go to nonprofits that focus on the Amazon. “My favorite thing about this carnival is seeing the intense collaboration within the groups of kids,” said teacher Stephanie Kawamura. “It blows my mind.” Devin Ewald, 11, and her friend Maddie Romero, 11, created a game called Prize Punch, which allowed players to “punch away the problems in the rainforest.” The duo covered cups with thin sheets of paper, and labeled various problems in the Amazon, including poaching, bio-piracy and acid rain. Players paid to punch each problem away. “I think the rainforest is a pretty place, and I’m sad there are parts of it being destroyed,” said Ewald. Romero said the devastation of the rainforest has her frightened. “I think there’s many beautiful species of plants, and they’re all being demolished,” said Romero. “That frightens me because at this rate the rainforest will be gone in 36 years.” Other games included a bean-bag toss, spin the wheel, golfing and knocking out problems using stacked cups. Players received small prizes for their efforts, as well as 30 minutes out of class to participate and support the Discovery team.

Hear the Ten Commandments read from historic Kristallnacht Torah Scroll rescued from synagogue set ablaze in November 1938 STAFF REPORT

A Torah scroll rescued from one of the 1,400 synagogues set ablaze on the night of Nov. 9, 1938, will make an appearance in Colorado as part of a tour that includes hundreds of Jewish communities worldwide. “The Torah is about knowledge, life, history and law, but this particular one is also about survival,” Rabbi Avraham Mintz, director of Chabad Jewish Center of South Metro Denver, said in a news release. The community is invited to join Chabad Jewish Center at 11 a.m. May 20 for the Shavuot Holiday Torah read-

ing of the Ten Commandments from the Kristallnacht Torah. The reading is followed by a Shavuot Holiday lunch. The blue velvet cover of the Kristallnacht Torah is embroidered in gold lettering, dating the scroll to the Jewish year 5699. That translates to late 1938, which, for the Jews of Europe, marked the beginning of the end for most. The night of Nov. 9, 1938, was when a wave of pogroms engulfed Germany and Austria. That night’s infamous name was taken from the smashed glass of Jewish shops and homes that littered streets. Torah scrolls were thrown into bonfires, sometimes by Jews who were forced to comply at gunpoint, while Nazis danced around the flames and cheered. While witnessing this madness, a 14-year-old boy named Isaac Schwartz risked his life and bolted into the main

synagogue in Hamburg and grabbed a Torah scroll from a smoldering pile of holy texts and other sacred items. He quickly buried it in his family’s yard. The family escaped to Venezuela, but returned to Hamburg following World War II to unearth the scroll. It was in poor shape, with holes, soiling and tears in the parchment. It had survived the Nazis, but not the elements, and sat in disrepair for decades. It stayed in the family until recently, when a friend of Mintz’s bought it from the Schwartz family. Leonard Wien is a businessman and philanthropist who has made it his mission to restore destroyed German Torah scrolls as a homage to his family members and the millions of others who perished in the Holocaust. Wien hired two scribes who spent 18 months rewriting the faded letters in black ink and replacing the parts of the parchment that were

beyond repair. Barely visible now are expertly patched holes and what appear to be light singe marks on the edges of the parchment. Only the cover and wooden finials are new. “This Torah truly captures the essence of our people,” Mintz said in the release. “Many have sought to destroy the Jewish people, but we’ve miraculously survived and we must continue our mission of repairing this world and revealing the light within it. The fact that this Torah will be with us on the Holiday of Shavuot celebrating the giving of the at Sinai captures this message of light, of hope and the promise of even a brighter tomorrow.” Chabad Jewish Center of South Metro Denver is at 9950 Lone Tree Parkway, Lone Tree.

‘I’m a dreamer who believes in a chance to succeed’ Douglas County library graduates first GED class BY TABATHA STEWART TSTEWART@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Eight-year-old Johnny Jenkins, and his brother J’Reece, 7, spent Sunday afternoon at the Douglas County Library in Parker. They weren’t there browsing the bookshelves or looking to check out the latest video game. They were there to watch their mother, Kiama, receive her high school diploma. Jenkins, 27, who lives in the Pinery, left high school when she got pregnant with Johnny, and has spent the last 10 years working and raising her boys. Thanks to Douglas County Library’s Career Online High School program, Jenkins finally earned her diploma and is planning to attend the community college. “This feels good,” said Jenkins, who chose a black cap and gown for the ceremony. “I never thought I could get my diploma. But now that I have kids I want them to make good choices.” Jenkins was one of four graduates recognized at the ceremony, which was attended by dozens of friends and family members in the conference room at the library. Tiffany Curtin, adult literary specialist for Douglas County Libraries who oversees the program, praised the graduates for their hard work and recognized several tutors who helped them. “Family and friends, you helped make it happen for them,” said Curtin. “This is a great achievement, and I’m so proud of everyone here today.” Each graduate had a specific reason for utilizing the program, and shared their stories with the crowd. Skylar Nelson, 18, was in the seventh grade when she was stricken with cancer. Her grandfather spoke to the crowd about her dedication to earning her General Equivalency Diploma. “Skylar was in the seventh grade when her education was interrupted,” said a teary-eyed Scott Stockton. “She spent the next several years just fighting to stay alive. I’m so proud of her, and for all of you graduates, congratu-

lations. Everybody’s got a story.” Nelson said she is cancer-free now, and is considering going into the field of medicine because of the great care she received. She currently works as a cook at the Egg and I and is planning to save her money for future education costs. Sunita Safi, 22, spoke about the long path from Afghanistan, including as a refugee in India for more than eight years, before she finally made it to the United States. After moving to Colorado in 2015 she heard about the GED program from a friend. “My friend said `Why don’t you apply for your GED?’ ” said Safi. “I didn’t know what it was, but I found out with a GED I can go to college. A GED is a tool that unlocks many doors of opportunity. It took me 15 months to complete, and I won’t lie, it was difficult.” Elena Sainz, 61, from Mexico, was

the oldest graduate. With a creative flair she adorned her cap with an elegant picture of a woman. “I’m a dreamer who believes in a chance to succeed, anytime, anywhere,” said Sainz, who also recently

attained her U.S. citizenship. “I would come home from a hard day at work and have a hard night of classes. I want to thank Douglas County libraries for the opportunity to realize this dream.”

Douglas County Libraries launched the Career Online High School and GED prep program in fall 2017 to provide an accredited online high school diploma and career certification program for adults ages 19 and older. The program allows students to complete the courses on their own schedule and at their own pace. A six- to 18-month commitment to the program is required, depending on previously earned high school credits. “What’s great about this program is that even though coursework is entirely online, students have access to a personal academic coach who can offer encouragement and guidance as needed through text, email or by phone,” said Tiffany Curtin, adult literacy specialist with the libraries. “They’ll also have in-person support from DCL staff members, and can participate in career prep webinars that provide the tools they’ll need after graduation.” Students who do not qualify for the program can take advantage of the library’s high school equivalency (HSE) prep classes, Curtin said. “GED students with high scores can even earn college credit. We are happy to discuss all options with potential students to help them on their path to reaching their education goals.” To learn more, visit DCL.org/cohs or call 303791-7323.

STRESS FROM PAGE 4

Time frame not firm Stress spikes among kids can happen even earlier than the end of the school year, said Christine Casey Perry, the district mental health resource coordinator for Littleton Public Schools. “We see our spikes in mental health crises in October and April,” Perry said. “People tend to link the October spike to the decrease in daylight. My own theory is that for those in school environments, the shine of the new school year has worn off. Maybe they’re struggling in classes, and it’s still too far from the finish line to be hopeful. The same in the spring: There’s SATs, prom, and the finality of the end of the year looming.” May is a breeze for Ashlynn Moore, a junior at Littleton High School. “This is the least stressful part of the school year,” Moore said. “All I have to worry about is finals. I don’t worry about much else.”

May 18, 2018M

‘This is the least stressful part of the school year.’ Ashlynn Moore, Littleton High School junior

Moore said her stress peaked in April, when her anxiety over performing well on the SATs left her sleepdeprived for days on end. “I was obsessed with getting a good score because that’s what colleges care about,” Moore said. “I had to retake the test because I did so poorly. I lost focus because I was so tired, and I was trying to make that up with energy drinks.” Moore’s experience isn’t uncommon, Laux said, nor is her coping method: hanging out with friends. “Peers tend to become teens’ primary support group.,” Laux said.

Running beneath student stress is the undercurrent of social mediainduced anxieties, Perry said. “Social media is a rough beast to battle with,” Perry said. “It can give outsized impressions of issues: It can make it look like everyone’s life is perfect, and on the flip side, it can make it look like everyone’s on drugs.” More than a statistic Mental health is hard to quantify, with numbers perhaps telling only a partial story. Suicide interventions — which mean only that a mental health provider was worried enough to ask a student if they were considering suicide, not that the student made a suicide attempt — are up sharply at Littleton schools this year, jumping from roughly 200 at this time last year to roughly 300 this year. Again, Perry said, correlation doesn’t necessarily equal causation, and the spike might simply be due to more kids being comfortable seeking mental health care. Still, Perry said young folks today have more on their minds.

“This is a more anxious and stressedout generation,” Perry said. “The impacts of being interconnected digitally but not in real life is having impacts on students.” Schools are stepping up their game when it comes to addressing mental health issues, Perry said. Littleton, for instance, now plays host to a studentled effort called Sources of Strength, which reaches out to kids showing signs of struggling, and works to promote a culture of support and resilience, Perry said. The focus on mental health issues can obscure the reality that the majority of kids are getting by just fine, Perry said. “There’s a narrative that all kids are struggling,” Perry said. “There’s been some increase, but the majority of kids are doing OK. When we look at our surveys, our students scored really high feeling safe and comfortable at school.” Moore, the high school junior, said she’s looking forward to the end of the school year. “I’m good now,” Moore said. “The SATs are done.”

Colorado students receive awards for investing smarts Stock Market Game winners apply research, critical thinking, analytical skills STAFF REPORT

Colorado students are learning firsthand about the value of long-term investing while playing a game. The SIFMA Foundation’s online Stock Market Game helps boost students’ math, economics and personal finance knowledge, and students across Colorado were awarded for their top-performing portfolios. Teams of one to four students begin the simulation with $100,000 imaginary cash to buy stocks, bonds, mutual funds and exchange-traded funds on the New York Stock Exchange and Nasdaq. Students place orders in real time, pay a broker’s fee on each transaction and keep track of their portfolio and cash. They also compete with peers in their classroom and with teams of other students in schools across the state to increase their portfolio value. “We live in an increasingly complex financial world, but many teens don’t receive the education they need to successfully manage their finances,” Carrie Schwab-Pomerantz, president of the Charles Schwab Foundation, said in a news release from the SIFMA Foundation. “Financial education programs like the Stock Market Game help prepare students to make responsible financial decisions that will serve them throughout their lives.” Stock Market Game lessons are designed to help students learn the fundamentals of long-term saving and investing. Students enhance their knowledge in core curriculum

subjects including math, language arts, economics and social studies. They also develop life skills such as financial preparedness, teamwork and business knowledge. “During the 2017-18 school year, as we celebrate our 40th anniversary, the Stock Market Game continues to make learning about the capital markets fun and engaging, drawing students in and enabling them to learn about otherwise complex but important economic concepts such as inflation, price indexes, cycles and trends,” Melanie Mortimer, SIFMA Foundation president, said in the release. “We are proud and thrilled for all of our student teams who reached the top spots in the Colorado SMG competition.” The winning teams, teachers and schools were recognized May 7 at the annual SIFMA Foundation Stock Market Game awards ceremony hosted by the Charles Schwab Foundation at the Schwab Events Center in Lone Tree. Winners in Colorado Community Newspapers’ coverage areas of the fall, spring and year-long competitions are: • Peabody Elementary School, Centennial, first place in the elementary division, fall session • Rocky Heights Middle School, Highlands Ranch, first place and second place in the middle school division, fall session • Sage Canyon Elementary School, Castle Rock, first place in the middle school division, spring session • Green Mountain High School, Lakewood, second place in the high school division, spring session • Mullen High School, Denver, first place in the high school division, yearlong session • DSST Charter School, Denver, second place in the high school division, year-long session

‘Sully’ soon will headline Centennial Airport’s 50th Renowned pilot to appear at event benefiting local aviation, aerospace programs

IF YOU GO The Centennial Airport 50th-anniversary gala will be held 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on May 25 at the Denver Marriott Tech Center at 4900 S. Syracuse St. in Denver. Individual tickets are $250 each. Table sponsorships, beginning at $3,000, are also available. Proceeds go to benefit the Centennial Airport Foundation. Tickets can be purchased at bit.ly/SULLYmedia. For assistance with tickets or sponsorships, contact 720-985-8580 or events@centennialairport.com. Centennial Airport is a generalaviation airport, which means it features flight training and medical evacuation, corporate charter, small cargo and recreational flights, among other uses — but commercial-airline flights,

like those on United or Southwest airlines, for example, are not part of the mix. It opened in 1968 as Arapahoe County Airport and is owned and operated by the Arapahoe County Public Airport Authority, a governmental body. It is not located in the City of Centennial, which was formed long after the airport in 2001 — the airport changed its name to “Centennial” in 1984. The airport sits at 7800 S. Peoria St., just south of East Arapahoe Road and southeast of the Topgolf entertainment complex, near the middle of Centennial. It sits mostly in unincorporated Arapahoe County but extends south into Douglas County, and it’s one of the busiest generalaviation airports in the country.

BY ELLIS ARNOLD EARNOLD@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

One of the busiest general-aviation airports in the country will host famed “miracle on the Hudson” pilot Capt. Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger for its 50th anniversary celebration. The gala luncheon May 25 will see Sullenberger share his credo of “leadership by personal example.” Proceeds from the event will go to benefit the Centennial Airport Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization that supports local STEM education and programs, particularly those with an emphasis on aviation and aerospace. The audience at the Denver Marriott Tech

Center will hear an address from Sullenberger about the life lessons that prepared him to handle the historic moment when he saved 155 lives on a flight that landed in the Hudson River. On Jan. 15, 2009, Sullenberger lost thrust in both engines on US Airways Flight 1549 and led his crew to safely execute an emergency water Capt. landing on the river in New Chesley York. Sullenberger and the “Sully” Sullenberger crew garnered widespread acclaim for their actions, including the passage of a congressional resolution in their honor. The crisis came to be known as the “miracle on the Hudson” and inspired the 2016 motion picture “Sully,” in which Tom Hanks portrayed Sullenberger.

Bill on mental health, guns stalls in Legislature BY KATHLEEN FOODY AND JAMES ANDERSON ASSOCIATED PRESS

Douglas County Sheriff Tony Spurlock begged state lawmakers to pass legislation making it easier to confiscate firearms from someone considered a danger to themselves or others — people, he said, like the man who shot and killed a sheriff ’s deputy in Highlands Ranch on New Year’s Eve. A week later, Republicans in the state Senate refused to send the bill to a floor vote, unconvinced by the prominent GOP district attorneys and sheriffs who argued that it would protect officers dealing with people in the midst of mental health crises. The 2018 legislative session came to a close on May 9. The bill did pass the Democrat-led House. Only two Republicans voted for it, foreshadowing claims by senators that the bill didn’t protect gun owners. Despite the proliferation of similar proposals after a gunman killed 17 people at a Florida high school in February and Colorado’s own history of mass shootings, the short-lived debate showed that the battle lines on gun policy in Colorado politics have barely shifted.

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

Similar “red flag” laws have been introduced in nearly 30 states since the Parkland, Florida killings, with lawmakers in Florida, Maryland and Vermont passing legislation. The issue simmered in Colorado’s divided Legislature until about a week before the end of the legislative session, when a top Republican in the Democrat-led House and a Democratic colleague unveiled the proposal. Supporters tried to keep the focus on the 29-year-old peace officer shot to death on New Year’s Eve in Highlands Ranch, naming the bill after slain Douglas County Sheriff ’s Deputy Zackari Parrish. Public records show the gunman, Matthew Riehl, threatened officials at the Wyoming law school he attended, threatened lawsuits against family members if they kept him from accessing firearms and was placed under a 72-hour mental health hold in 2014 at a Veterans Affairs psychiatric ward. None of that appears to have disqualified him from buying weapons. Colorado Republicans claimed a red flag law could discourage gun owners from seeking treatment for mental health problems. They said personal spats could lead to requests for an emergency order without giving the gun owner an immediate opportunity to respond. “When it comes to the potential for gun confiscation without proper due process ... I do not think it should be

any surprise what happens to that bill,” GOP Senate President Kevin Grantham predicted May 7. Under the proposal, family members or law enforcement could have asked a court to issue a “temporary extreme risk protection order” if they believed someone posed a risk to themselves or others, and require them to hand in all firearms to local law enforcement. Another hearing would have been required within seven days of the initial order, and a judge would have decided whether to end or extend an order for 182 days. The gun owner could have asked a judge to reconsider during that 182day period. Supporters argued that process ensured that gun owners’ rights were protected but would help prevent suicide or killings. At an April 30 press conference unveiling the bill, Spurlock said it could have saved Parrish’s life. “What we’re trying to do is save lives,” he said. “And if you get in front

of this or you interfere with it or you don’t vote for it ... you are not doing your job.” Gun rights debates have consumed Colorado’s Capitol before. Lawmakers approved a ban on high-capacity magazines and added a background check for firearm transfers in 2013, months after the mass shootings in Aurora and at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut. Gun owners’ groups retaliated by pushing successful recall votes against two Democratic state senators who voted for the gun control bills. The groups again mobilized against the red flag bill, calling Republican co-sponsor Cole Wist, of Centennial, “a mole” in the party’s ranks and warning George Brauchler, a district attorney running for attorney general, to withdraw his support. But Brauchler, who prosecuted the Aurora theater shooter for killing 12 people and injuring 70 others in 2012, called the proposal the most “protective” version of a “red flag” law nationally. By comparison, an Indiana version passed in 2005 lets police confiscate firearms without a warrant and get a judge’s approval afterward, said Brauchler, a Republican whose 18th Judicial District includes Arapahoe, Douglas, Elbert and Lincoln counties. “I’m skeptical of giving the government authority like this, but skepticism is not a justification for inaction,” he said.

Coming back to Centennial Airport to talk about leadership seemed natural for Sullenberger, who served as a fighter pilot for the Air Force from 1975-80. Originally the Arapahoe County Airport, it’s a place he became acquainted with nearly five decades ago. “When I entered the U.S. Air Force Academy, I already held a commercialpilot certificate that I had earned while still in high school,” said Sullenberger, a Texas native. “During the Thanksgiving weekend of my freshman year, I traveled to the Arapahoe County Airport to fly a Cessna 172 to get some flight time and maintain my piloting skills. I flew an hour-long flight that day. Over my four years at the academy, I had occasion to fly into (the airport) a few times.” In a changing commercial-aviation

industry landscape, Sullenberger’s speech comes at a time when the future of the craft depends heavily on young hopefuls for pilot and technician positions. The nonprofit Centennial Airport Foundation supports local STEM education and programs, particularly with an emphasis on aviation and aerospace. The airport’s executive director, Robert Olislagers, reflected on Centennial Airport’s growth as an influential part of the south Denver metro area. “From humble beginnings in 1968, Centennial Airport has grown to become one of the most respected, premier business airports in the nation,” Olislagers said. It is “an integral part of the economic success of the Denver south metro area, and being able to celebrate 50 years of aviation excellence with Captain Sullenberger, who exemplifies excellence in aviation, is a fitting tribute to not only the airport, but to all who have made our success possible.”

The distribution of new Medicare cards has prompted predators to try to trick consumers into giving up their money or personal information, according to a news release from Colorado Attorney General Cynthia H. Coffman. Coffman issued a warning in early May to be on the lookout for scammers calling, emailing or texting and claiming to be officials from Medicare. The scammers might threaten to cancel health benefits, or claim to need payment or private information to issue a new Medicare card, the release said. Medicare started issuing new cards to all beneficiaries in April; however, in Colorado, cards will be mailed sometime after June. To better protect consumers’ identities, the cards no longer contain Social Security numbers. Instead, Medicare is assigning unique numbers to each patient for use with doctor visits and medical claims. “Medicare will not call consumers offering to replace their cards, they’ll never seek personal information or charge you to replace a card,” Coffman said in the release. “We want to make sure that consumers protect their private data, don’t give out their Social Security numbers or financial information and don’t fall victim to scammers.” Following is some information to help consumers avoid getting caught up in a Medicare card scam: New cards will be sent directly to

consumers’ mailing address. To update address, call Social Security at 800-772-1213 or visit ssa.gov/myaccount. If a consumer receives a phone call, email or text offering to help with this transition, they should ignore the offer. Consumers should never provide or verify any personal information to an unsolicited caller or written request. New cards will be mailed in waves. Cards for Colorado residents are not scheduled to be mailed until after June. It is likely that Colorado beneficiaries will not receive their new cards until late 2018 or early 2019. Once consumers receive their new cards, they should shred and/or thoroughly destroy their old cards. Consumers should provide their new Medicare numbers only to their known doctors, insurers, pharmacists and health-care providers Anyone with questions about the Medicare card transition can contact AARP Foundation ElderWatch at 303-222-4444 or www.aarp.org/ aarp-foundation/our-work/income/ elderwatch/.

I think now it would drive me to distraction. On each side of the truck it said “Good Humor.” I think I have a good sense of humor. Mine is mine, and it’s sculpted, and it’s not Craig Marshall universal. Mine is lean, free of meanSmith ness and ribaldry. And that excludes me these days from

comedy clubs and White House Correspondents’ Dinners. No more stand-up for Craig. I am too old for Michelle Wolf ’s humor. I was too old for it when I was her age (32). I can’t remember the first time I saw Don Rickles on Carson, but I know I wasn’t crazy about him. He’d pick at every scab, and then wind up by saying it was all just a joke, and he loved everyone. Joan Rivers did the same thing, but she never said it was all just a joke, or that she loved everyone. Maybe you remember celebrity roasts? I thought they were imbecilic. Now they’re so raunchy they only appear on cable. My father never told a joke in his

life, but he was the funniest man I knew. He was witty right now, and he didn’t need a writer. I found out what humor was, or what it was thought to be, when I was in grade school by watching television. These were a few of my choices: Jackie Gleason, Milton Berle and Lucille Ball. For reasons I could explain if this were a comedy dissertation, I rejected all of them. Along came a curiosity named Ernie Kovacs and I brightened somewhat. Kovacs was off-center, and his humor was constructed piece by piece, not thrown at me in a predictable punch. I haven’t watched situation comedies in 40 years. I will admit, however,

to an appreciation for Barney Fife (portrayed, of course, by Mick Jagger). Fife might have been television’s last genuinely amusing, reoccurring character. Fife looked and sounded like they located him in Mayberry, North Carolina, not in a script room in southern California. My alma mater’s extension school offers a course I briefly considered.

I say that because I did fill up my binder and other binders with many awards and recognitions, letters of accomplishment, letters and emails provided as a testimonial or reference. Now I am not sharing this with you to brag on myself, I am really bragging on my mentor and the advice and guidance he gave me, because the second part of his advice is where he made all the difference in my life and contributed to my future successes. You see, the second part of the advice is built on the saying that, “Success begets success.” He encouraged me to review my past achievements regularly as a way to continue to believe that I can do great things. The idea was not to get caught up in relying on my past successes, as we know that we are only as good as our last record. And it also wasn’t about someone asking me, “So what have you done for me lately?” No, it’s not about that at all, it’s about you and me, and asking ourselves, “What else is still left inside of me?” Asking ourselves, “What have I done for myself lately?” Throughout my career I have experienced exhilarating wins, and I have suffered crushing losses.

Populations are becoming older on all continents and Japan leads the world with the highest percentage of their people, 30 percent, over age 65. It is expected that by 2050, more than 60 countries will have reached that level. ¹ Investors may worry about what happens to the stock market when the number of retirees continues to increase.

Teachers don’t start out in the college of education expecting to make high salaries. I know because I married one. Expectations rise later when they begin socializing with other teachers in the teachers’ lounge. Teachers by nature are risk averse and seek the security they find with labor unions and unabashed claims of righteousness defending what’s best for their children.

If you are forced to stay put in your two-story house and bring in help, the supply and demand once again drives up the price of care providers available to meet your needs. This is definitely an age group that is supporting the economy as they pay for more goods and services needed to provide for an aging population. Investors and companies can capitalize on new inventions designed to keep you young, active and healthy. As you age, more services are needed from house painting to lawn services and eventually elder care. It will be fascinating to watch what new innovations will be available on anything from self-driving cars to same-day dentures. There is an opportunity for products that allow you to age in place, such as stair climbers, walk-in tubs and meal delivery. This is in addition to health care facilities and retirement communities that are popping up in every zip code. Consumers demand services and products, which in turn impacts how businesses adapt to compete in the areas needed by the current population. We watched the baby boomers impact products and business on everything from Gerber baby food to McDonald’s restaurants as they approached their teenage years. Next it was minivans and mini-mansions.

been everywhere in between. There have been times when I have forgotten about my book of records and achievements, and instead of looking on my past successes to motivate me, I found myself wrestling in slumps. And then, somewhere deep inside I would hear the voice of my mentor saying, go back and look at your binder. So, I would open it, read a few of them, or more if I was really in a deep slump, and get fired up again about who I am and what I have accomplished in this life personally and professionally.

iFLY FROM PAGE 11

The evening was designed for individuals with special physical and cognitive needs to create an environment of support and inclusion while empowering attendees to push past limitations and take flight. The event was open to everyone in the special needs community. Attendees received a pre-flight training session before donning flight gear, including suit, helmet and goggles. Flight instructors helped each participant based on individual needs, and each flier was given the chance to fly twice, at one minute each flight in the vertical wind tunnel. Each flight was captured on video, which was sent home with participants as a reminder of the experience. The second annual All Abilities Night wrapped a month-long fundraising effort by iFLY to benefit Adam’s Camp. “Our goal was to elevate awareness for what we do, which is providing a wonderful and inclusive opportunity for people in the special needs community,” said Lynnae Godfrey, general manager of iFLY Denver. “We were so happy to help raise awareness on our partner organization, Adam’s Camp, within the iFLY community. For our All Abilities Night and celebratory event, it was great seeing people, friends, family and supporters of the organization take the time to share a unique experience such as taking flight.” Adam’s Camp was founded in 1986, with the intention of providing a variety of intensive, personalized and integrated therapeutic programs for children with special needs and their families. They also offer recreational programs that foster social connections and growth in independence for youth and young adults with special needs. For more information visit www. adamscamp.org.

Ashley Hartman Castle View High School

I find this type of law to be interesting and helpful to others.

During my high school career, I was on the poms team for three years and participated in a few clubs/ extracurricular activities. After graduation, I will be attending the University of Colorado in Colorado Springs and will major in political acience.

What do you hope to accomplish in life? I hope to become successful and happy in life. I want to make myself proud, achieve my future goals and meet new people.

What profession or career do you want to pursue? Why? I plan on pursuing a career in family law. I’ve always wanted to be an attorney and

If I could do anything, it would be to… Ttravel the world and experience new places and those cultures.

Chaparral High School Throughout her time at Chaparral, Andre, 18, has participated in cheer, track, DECA and Sources of Strength and wrote for the school newspaper, the Chaparral Crier. She will be attending the University of Colorado. What profession or career do you want to pursue and why? I plan to pursue a career as a pediatric oncologist nurse. I have always loved helping people and I love children. I was inspired by a childhood friend I knew who had

cancer. I will attend the University of Colorado for a four-year psychology degree, before attending nursing school. What do you hope to accomplish in life? I hope to travel to Africa and other countries where I can use my medical skills to help people and contribute in missions. If you could do anything, it would be to ... Take a cruise to every country you’re allowed to go to.

What have you learned that you will carry with you for the rest of your life?

I’ve learned that the connections you make with people as you learn and grow are the most vital part of personal success. You need people supporting you and working beside you to achieve the goals you

I’ve learned that every day you have the chance to influence others around you through the life you lead. — Noraa Fort, Lutheran High School

— Savannah Howard, Mountain Vista High School

In high school I feel that I have learned how to enjoy the great times in life and battle through the toughest times in life — persevering no matter what obstacles get put in your way because life isn’t always easy. I think that is something I can take and apply to my entire life going forward, never giving up no matter what the circumstances are.

I have learned how valuable resilience and determination are. It’s always good to have dreams and plans, but adaptability is just as important. Just because something doesn’t go how you planned — a competition, a test, a friendship — doesn’t mean that it’s wrong. — Cyra Gallano, STEM Highlands Ranch

— PJ Ausmus, Legend High School

I’ve learned the importance of time management and that without it, I would be behind in everything. — Lauren Lippert, Mountain Vista High School

I think having a sense of humility in life is important. Even if you’re successful in everything you do, be humble, and don’t be afraid to learn from others. — Gabriela Blanchard, Ponderosa High School

My dad has always said “If it were easy, everyone would do it.” I think hard work and not giving up are important to take with me into life. — Isaac Power, Ponderosa High School

I’ve learned the value of time management and study skills, but I’ve also learned the importance of knowing when to lean on other people for support. I’ve learned how to deal with what you can’t control and to take advantage of things you can control. I also think it’s important to enjoy every moment. — Abby Ulrich, Chaparral High School

Ashley Garcia Douglas County High School I played volleyball all four years of high school and was a part of NHS. I made some great memories and learned a lot but now it’s time for the next step. For me, that is going to college at University of Northern Colorado to major in athletic training. What profession or career do you want to pursue? Why? In the future, I would like to be an athletic trainer for either college sports teams or professional sports teams. The main reason why I want to be an athletic trainer is because I want to help people and make sure athletes get the right medical help and also teach people how to prevent injuries. In today’s society, sports are really popular and it seems like too many athletes are getting hurt and I just want to be able to help in any way that I can. Also, the

medical field has always interested me and when I explored into it more, I found this and decided to go further with it. What do you hope to accomplish in life? This may sound really cliché, but I want to just be happy in life. I want to give back to all the people that have helped me throughout my life and also help those that I don’t even know. I love spreading positivity and find that if you put happiness out into the world, it will come back to you. I don’t need much in life and honestly my biggest accomplishments come from happiness. If I could do anything, it would be to… If I could do anything, it would be to travel the world. I’ve always dreamt of traveling and to this day it is on the top of my bucket list.

John Bustamante Highlands Ranch High School The first few years of high school I wasn’t involved too much, and that honestly was really big regret for me. But senior year I joined this class called ACE, which stands Alternative Cooperative Education. They did a lot of projects outside of the classroom. They partnered with Big Idea, which partners mentors with students to go out into the community and find a problem and try and solve it. We actually just presented our final projects and made it to state. I ended up winning $250 worth of scholarship money. When I started getting more involved, things started to come out better for me. What profession or career do you want to pursue? Why? I’m not planning on going to college right after high school. I was planning on working and saving up money.

After that I want to go to college and learn about sports nutrition or sports science. For me, it’s really enjoyable to watch and see how much science goes into an athlete’s peak performance. That would be nice, to be able to make money off of something I like to do. What do you hope to accomplish in life? I hope to leave the world better than I found it. I want to help a lot of people and be a good person and go out in my community. I feel like especially with the class, ACE, it taught me a lot of people aren’t performing to their potential because they don’t have people helping them. I can’t solve everything, but I can give people the support they need. If I could do anything, it would be to… Travel this next year. That would be pretty cool to take a whole trip around the globe. Especially because I don’t have anything to worry about at the moment.

What have you learned that you will carry with you for the rest of your life? One of the most important things I’ve learned is how to adapt to change, and how to change what you expect. Things may not always work out in your favor, but you have to be able to change and still go on with what you want. — Ayla Main, Chaparral High School

Kendall Racanelli Mountain Vista High School Racanelli played softball and was involved in American Sign Language Honor Society, Fellowship of Christian Athletes and Young Life. She also enjoyed volunteering. Next year, she will be attending Colorado Christian University, where she will study health sciences and business, and play softball. What profession or career do you

want to pursue? I hope to become a physical therapist because I want to be involved with athletes and help people. What do you hope to accomplish in life? I hope to have a successful career and have a family. If I could do anything, it would be to ... Find a way for every dog and cat that needs a loving home to have one.

What have you learned that you will carry with you for the rest of your life? Just enjoy the moment. High school flew by. Looking back, I know I will miss all the people and the experiences. — Taylor White, ThunderRidge High School

I’ve learned that loving what you do is a big part of life. I know pursuing a career in acting will be hard, but if I love it I’ll keep doing it. — Mary Dyson, Lutheran High School

Challenges and problems aren’t a stopping point. I’ve learned a lot of resilience. You just have to look and be diligent in finding solutions to the problem. — Grace Miller-Forrest, SkyView Academy

There is more to be gained in pursuing challenge than taking the easy road. — Kyra Roach, ThunderRidge High School

Yosheb Getachew Lutheran High School Getachew played football and track and was a member of the National Honor Society and Student Council. He will be attending Stanford University in California. What profession or career do you want to pursue and why? As of now I am pursuing a career in neuroscience, specifically the aspect of research. There are so many neuroscience diseases, such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s, that I would like to help control and prevent. I have always had aspirations to attend

an Ivy League school. What do you hope to accomplish in life? I want my life to have meaning beyond a superficial existence. I want to increase the quality of living by helping my fellow man. I want success in whatever I do. If you could do anything, what would it be? Professionally, I would like to be the person who breaks through the scientific barrier that opens the brain for us to study and treat illnesses. Personally, I would like to own a private island.

David Painter Legend High School Painter was home schooled until his freshman year at Legend. Once enrolled at Legend he joined the Thespians Society, was a member of the National Honors Society, National English Honors Society, Tri-M Music Honors Society and Choir Council. Painter plans to attend the University of Denver, where he will major in Film Studies and Production. What profession or career to you want to pursue? At DU, I plan on majoring in Film Studies & Production. Which, I guess in a nutshell means I want to be a filmmaker. But I truly have always found a passion in making movies specifically. I have never wanted to be a videographer who films commercials/promo videos for a living. I think that aspect of film making is not fun (at least for me). I think the reason I love fulllength professional films in particular, is because I have loved watching (and making) movies ever since I was a little kid. It’s always been apart of my childhood that I can cherish. I think that there is a certain magic that occurs in a movie, that happens nowhere else. What do you hope to accomplish in life? This question is hard for me, because I think no matter how much I would like to say I have all of my goals and aspirations figured out, I know that they all are not. But as for now, I think that one of the biggest things

I hope to accomplish is success. I know that may sound cliche, but truly I do. I think a lot of people approach an answer like that and robotically assume that by saying “success” I mean money, and all the luxuries that come with it (granted, that wouldn’t suck either). In all honesty, I want more success with myself, than being considered “successful” by the outside. I want to be able to look back on what I’ve done and be proud of my success and more importantly, my progression as an individual. If I could do anything, it would be... Well, I’m not quite sure if I should take this question literally, or take the more “philosophical” approach, so I guess I’ll do both! If I could do anything literally, I would want to be able to have a superpower. Specifically, I would want telekinesis. Because it’s such a versatile superpower. I mean, wanna fly? Move your body with your brain. Wanna have super strength? Move a car with you brain. If I could do anything philosophically, I would say I would get the nicest camera I could, and travel around the world to try and spread positivity in any way that I could. I, myself have always been optimistic. My mom told me I came into the world with a smile on my face, and I don’t think that’s changed much in the last 18 years. I have always loved being happy, and I think especially in our world today, people just need more happiness.

Madison Tenney

Dana Coe Rock Canyon High School I am and have been involved with art my whole life as I love everything about it! The way it makes me feel, how it communicates, and how pleasing to the eye it can be, gets to me. I have participated in a lot of clubs including Red Cross, German, Eco, SMILE and am even an officer in the Biotechnology club. I have also participated in sports including field hockey and was on the first ever Girl’s Lacrosse team here at Rock Canyon. As of next year, I have declared myself to major in Bioengineering at CU Boulder. What profession or career do you want to pursue? Why? I intend to be a bioengineer! Everything about biology and chemistry interest me —especially on a molecular level. The awesome thing about being an engineer is it’s not only having the

knowledge in the field, but it’s applying the knowledge and skills gained in the major to solve real world issues. I’m beyond excited to start my life path! What do you hope to accomplish in life? All cheesiness aside, through my knowledge, I simply want to make the world better than what it is. To eliminate a suffering for a large amount of people is my ultimate goal. If I could do anything, it would be to… Eliminate disease, hunger, poverty, violence and injustice. Haha! Very unrealistic, I know. If you’re looking for something a bit more realistic, if I could do anything, it would be to do art for a living and have my paintings sell for millions! I would then, at that point, donate a majority of the profit. Maybe that’s a bit unrealistic, too, but you never

STEM School Highlands Ranch Tenney participates in student government, National Honor Society, and Sociedad Honoraria Hispánica. She’s also a member of Girls in STEM Denver. This fall, she will be attending the University of Kansas and will major in political science and economics. What profession or career do you want to pursue? Why? My family, teachers and mentors have done an amazing job at convincing me that I can be anything that my heart desires. I have been exposed to countless professions, all of which seemed perfectly fitting when introduced. It seemed that each week I would have a new career in sight. One of my mentors would always joke, “Madison is

going to be president one day!” She said it enough that I started to believe it. From there, I began to associate my academic interests of history, English and economics with my passion for politics. I intend to pursue a career as a constitutional lawyer or political consultant. What do you hope to accomplish in life? Over the course of my lifetime, I hope to make meaningful and positive relationships with those that I meet. I want to grow and learn with each obstacle I face. Most of all though, I want to make a mark on the world with my work, in whichever way I deem possible. If I could do anything, it would be to ... Spend time traveling abroad to study the influence of politics on culture.

What have you learned that you will carry with you for the rest of your life? Something I have learned in high school is that you can find friends in the most unlikely places. No matter what the situation is you will always find a friend.

Throughout my high school years, I have learned that through hard work and the right mindset you can obtain the goals you set. Whether it’s to make the varsity team, get a 4.0, or just graduate, if you keep your goal in mind and the steps you need to get it, you will achieve it.

— Emily Conway, Highlands Ranch High School

— Maddy Ketron, Douglas County High School

Uncomfortable situations can be really beneficial to your experience in high school. They force you to work with people you may not get along with and meet new people.

I have learned to always put God first no matter what I do because I am made in His image.

— Dawson Drew, SkyView Academy

— Kye Michael, Valor Christian High School

The biggest thing I have learned throughout my time at Castle View is to never lose sight of the end goal! Although at times high school hasn’t always been the easiest and most fun, it’s all going to be worth it after I graduate. — Ryan Remy, Castle View High School

An important lesson that I learned in high school would be how to work with different kinds of people and how important unity is when trying to achieve a goal. I learned that working for a cause bigger than yourself not only affects you positively, but that it can change somebody’s life. — Alyssa Huey, Legend High School

LIFE ADVICE FOR COSPLAY

Shopping for issues missing from a collection is one of the most common activities at Denver Comic Con. FILE PHOTO

A guide for those new to

Comic Con

Advice for the event, cosplaying and collecting BY CLARKE READER CREADER@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

For first-timers or the uninitiated in the world of comic conventions, Denver’s annual Comic Con can be an intimidating experience. The sprawling event, which is June 15-17 this year, brings upward of 100,000 nerds, cosplayers and collectors into the Colorado Convention Center for fun, exploration and connection. “There’s a sense of community that comes with these kinds of events, because everyone shares the same passions,” said Tara Hubner, marketing and communications manager with Pop Culture Classroom, which puts on the con every year. “For a lot of people, this is the only time they get to see some of these people, so it’s like a big SEE COMIC, P29

• One of the best parts about Comic Con is seeing the truly exceptional cosplay work so many people are capable of creating. There are the expected super heroes and science fiction leads, but there’s always more than a few surprises. Don’t be shy to ask to take a photo with a particular favorite — most are very friendly and willing to pose. • At the Comic Con website, there are guidelines for what cosplayers are and are not allowed to wear and bring in as props. Hubner said cosplayers need to be covered enough that there’s no risk of “wardrobe malfunctions” and said that as a general rule, if a person isn’t sure about a certain prop or outfit, it’s better to leave it at home. • Littleton’s Reinke Brothers Halloween Costume and Superstore is a great place for cosplayers of all skill levels to suit up, especially as it’s one of the few costume stores open year-round. “We have the latest and greatest costumes, parts and pieces to make a great outfit,” said Greg “Shof” Shofner, general manager of the store, located at 5663 S. Prince St. “Comic Con gives us a great boost every year, and we start our ordering in January to make sure we have enough of all the costumes.” Over the years, the store has built up relationships with reputable manufacturers, so all the costumes they sell are properly licensed. • A big key to the success of many cosplay outfits is the makeup and prosthetics, and Reinke has experts in those areas as well to help provide that movie quality look. • As Shofner tells it, the key is to get started working on outfits as soon as possible, in case there need to be last-minute alterations.

BASICS TO KNOW

• It’s downtown Denver, so parking is always going to be tricky and potentially expensive, Hubner said. Pop Culture’s recommendation is to park farther away and take a Lyft or Uber, or take the light rail, since there is a stop right at the convention center. That same weekend PrideFest and the Denver BBQ Festival will be happening, so expect downtown to be extra busy. • With attendance last year topping about 115,000 people, attendees should be prepared for lines and waiting at the June 15-17 event. June 16, a Saturday, will be the busiest day, so Friday or Sunday would be a good day to visit to deal with fewer people. “The schedule for the con will be announced about two weeks out, and we encourage people to take a look at it and get a game

plan, so they don’t lose time wandering,” Hubner said. “We advise attendees to wear comfortable shoes, brings snacks and water to help them.” • The vast majority of the artists and authors who will be speaking are available for photos and autographs for free, but when it comes to major celebrities, there’s more to consider. Tickets to those events can be bought in advance or at the event, but fans should be prepared for lines. According to Hubner, lines for photo ops or autographs can take 30 minutes to an hour. “We recommend people go to the celebrity summit first thing and get a sense of the times when their celebrity will be making an appearance,” she said. “Then get there early if you don’t want to spend a

lot of time waiting.” • There are plenty of ATMS around the center, but using them usually requires more waiting in lines, so bring cash if possible. • Consider staying after hours. A fun part of the con is all the new people that attendees meet, and there are several after-party events available to keep the good times going. • One of the biggest piece of advice Hubner has is to not be intimidated. There will be volunteers spread all over the con who will be more than willing to answer questions and provide guidance. “We’re a very welcoming place, and there’s always someone willing to help,” she said. “We want everyone to have a good time while they’re here.”

Young actress isn’t just going through a stage

N

ot many people are lucky enough to know what they do with their lives by the time they reach important milestones like graduating from high school. So, I’m not sure if there’s a name for how lucky 10-year-old Arvadan Payton Maynard is — she’s known she wanted to act since she was 2 years old. “When I was 2, my mom started COMING noticing I was really ATTRACTIONS good at memorizing stuff, and could do it quickly,” she said. “That was kind of the start, and by the time I was 6, we started looking for an agency.” In the ensuing years Maynard has worked in several Clarke Reader independent films and was recently cast as one of the leads in a new mystery and science fiction TV series called “Frozen Dead” about cryogenics that is filming in Nederland. And she recently took to the stage for the first time in the role of the Young Queen Elizabeth II in Aurora’s Vintage Theatre’s production of “The Audience.” “What I like about the theater is you can react to the audience and they can react to you. When you’re doing film or TV, you don’t get that connection,” she said. “It’s been my favorite acting experience yet. I think it has so much potential to make me grow as actress and person.” As someone who has been acting locally for so much of her life, Maynard has seen more film and TV opportunities become available in the metro area, but still not as many as places like Los Angeles and New York City. “Last summer got to be an extra in a feature film called ‘Unmarked,’ and now this TV series,” she said. “We’ll be continuing work on it through the summer and will start shopping it around in August. I do have a fiveyear commitment if it gets picked up.” As to what Maynard’s future holds, in addition to acting she loves dance, so she wants to continue her studies in the fields of dance, drama and acting, and may even consider teaching at the Doral Academy in Westminster — the school she currently attends. “When I get on the stage, I get to leave the past behind and make a new future for myself,” she said. “I want the chance to inspire other kids to do what they love and be what they want to be.” SEE READER, P29

A

utumnal Equinox” by Aurora fiber artist Diana Vander Does hangs just inside the entrance into the gallery at the PACE Center in Parker. It’s included in an exhibit, “Contrast,” by the adventurous Front Range Contemporary Quilters, which runs through June 25. Curator Rose Fredrick comments that this exhibit “offers SONYA’S a chance to see the familiar in a new SAMPLER way.” The juror was Linda Colsh. Vander Does’ brilliant red work begins with a digital image print on fabric. Then it is stitched in a more traditional manner — but not quite! Perhaps inspired by a Japanese maple Sonya Ellingboe tree, it’s part of an adventurous collection of fiber art pieces that includes some clothing and other works that will surprise. Open during business hours at the center and of course, during performances. Allow extra time to look at the gallery and the halls. PACE is at 20000 Pikes Peak Ave., Parker.

ACC releases 2018 issue of prestigious Progenitor BY SONYA ELLINGBOE SELLINGBOE@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Progenitor: A person who first thinks of something and causes it to happen. This definition faces an opening letter from the co-editors, Arapahoe Community College students Cara Allen and Rachel Lozano, in the 2018 edition of Progenitor, Art and Literary Journal 2018. The beautifully produced journal is available free, at the college library, the Welcome Desk on the second floor and in the Community Section of the Aspen Grove Tattered Cover Bookstore in Littleton, Allen said. They comment that “by working with myriad contributors, each one proud to bring forth their life’s experiences, we strived to create a magazine of pure excellence, while embracing the theme of regrowth out of the ruins of everyday life. More important, these works suggest that there will always be hope that humanity will be seen through the cracks of a cold and brutal world …” The 53rd annual edition of Progenitor was introduced May 2 with a celebration in the Colorado Gallery

of the Arts at Arapahoe Community College. Contributing writers read from and spoke about their pieces, and editors of the journal talked about the logistics of selecting the varied 2018 works from materials submitted. Submissions were chosen from students and from working writers across the country, submitted between October and February, and the journal is produced by students enrolled in English 231 and Multimedia and Graphic Design 280 at ACC, with funding provided by the School of Communications, Humanities, Art and Design. On more than one occasion, most recently, 2017, Progenitor was honored with the asard for Most Outstanding Community College Literary-Art Magazine by the American Scholastic Press Association. Other awards have also accumulated through the years for this classy production. Winners in the yearly ACC literary Festival and the annual Student Art Juried Exhibition are included in the collection each year, providing an added incentive to enter. Entries were received in poetry, art, fiction and nonfiction and reviewed by the staff. The faculty advisers

were Andrea Mason, English, and John Hall, graphic design, as well as Colorado Gallery of the Arts director Trish Sangelo. In addition to Allen and Lozano, student staff included: Rosette Rivera, literary and art general editor; Hollie Giannaula, creative director; Britni Azam, poetry editor; Donna Debacco, web editor; Kera Morris, fiction editor; Milo Shattell, art/ photography editor; Bryden Smith, nonfiction editor. Art photos include entries in the annual student show and others, including student Jadon Gold’s humorous “Origami Forest Fire,” while written pieces include “Wind Song” by Jane Adair, an award-winning Colorado writer; “Eden,” by Darryl Halbrooks, a Writers Studio Literary Contest winner; and Writers Studio Poetry winner “¡Oye! ¡Gringo!” by Brian Dickson, who teaches at Community College of Denver. The graphic design of the cover is cleverly carried into the journal, with a special ending to each written work. From its crisp cover design of a city growing roots to its collection of polished work, Progenitor 2018 is a treat for the reader. Seek a copy!

3 photographers exhibit powerful images in Littleton BY SONYA ELLINGBOE SELLINGBOE@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

IF YOU GO

“Past and Future Focus,” displayed in the Stanton Gallery in downtown Littleton’s Town Hall Arts Center from May 12 through June 22, accompanies the last production of the theater’s season: “Ain’t Misbehavin’,” which features the rollicking keyboard music of Jelly Roll Morton, with a story and a song or two ... The exhibit explores both historic film and contemporary digital photography. Curator Moira Casey reports that three photographers will participate in “Past and Future Focus”: Karen Zink of Littleton; Tony Lazzari of Roxborough — an exhibiting member of the new Roxarts Gallery at Aspen Grove; and David M. Parks, who grew up in Denver. Each has a story to tell — as did Fats Waller! Thought-provoking images by Karen Zink, a longtime resident of Littleton, include carefully composed collages using everyday objects. She said, “Explaining my art is like trying to hold on to fog or a dream. I work in several areas of photography, some old processes, Polaroid transfers, black and white, color, using different formats, now including digital.” She aims for a personal response from the viewer, especially women probably. “I often describe what I do as creating inner landscapes, or personal stories, ones that we own ourselves, rather than documenting the external world.”

Castle Rock/Franktown

“Past and Future Focus” is displayed in Stanton Gallery at Town Hall Arts Center, 2450 W. Main Street, Littleton, through June 22. The gallery is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays and during performances. 303-794-2787. She adds that her dreams are a source of ideas. “Then again, sometimes I just try to make something of beauty.” Tony Lazzari, who is surrounded by natural beauty where he lives in Roxborough, write that he has mostly lived in the Midwest until a 2013 move to Colorado. In the past several years, he has discovered the natural beauty and the pleasure of learning the craft of photography and exhibiting his images — especially landscapes and night scenes — in Denver, Lone Tree, Highlands Ranch and Littleton, as well as across the U.S. He enjoys experimenting with a variety of lenses and is spending time on urban and street photography. David M. Parks moved to Denver with his family at age 3, grew up and spent four years in the Navy. He returned and “pursued a career path in aviation,” while developing a parallel interest in photography, gaining formal training at the former Metropolitan State College. He also enjoyed roaming the streets and alleys during 1977 to 1983, using mostly black-and-white film. He participated in juried shows in Spark Gallery and at the Littleton

Denver Pops Orchestra seeks musicians for next season STAFF REPORT

Denver Pops Orchestra is looking for musicians for the 2018-19 season. Vacancies include concertmaster (paid position), tuba, French horn, bass clarinet, percussion and section strings.

the plains — and the fascinating blackand-white image, “Alice’s World,” that again is full of possible stories. A visit to Schnelzer’s website gallery is rewarding for its breadth of subjects and intensity — certainly true of this exhibit in the freshly painted gallery. Caulfield’s abstract “Peacock” won him a Best of Show. “I paint with

Musicians who play other instruments are welcome to audition; the orchestra is happy to add musicians to the substitute list. Denver Pops is a volunteer organization that performs a variety of popular music, including Broadway and movie arrangements, dance and big

band tunes, and light classical pieces. Rehearsals are Wednesday evenings, and the season runs from late August to mid-May, with six to seven performances per season. For auditions, musicians are expected to perform two excerpts of tje applicant’s choosing — a classical

excerpt and a pops or jazz excerpt and sight reading. Auditions take place the evening of May 30 at 975 S. Balsam Court, Lakewood. Go to www.denverpopsorchestra. org for information and to schedule an audition.

light” he wrote, “and I attempt to make the lights look like they were brushed on. I use movement to create shapes and I often shoot through glass to bend the light, which produces more colors … (`Peacock’ was shot through a vase.) Sharing my photos sometimes reminds me of a Rorschach ink blot test … Each viewer usually sees something different … Now rotate the image 90 or 120 degrees … Does change the perspective?” This photographer wrote that he is fairly new to digital photography. He

has a BFA in graphic design, worked in computer-aided drafting and then switched careers when his son “suffered a traumatic brain injury in an automobile accident and I helped him rehabilitate. It was very fulfilling so I switched fields. Now, I work at a nonprofit helping individuals with developmental disabilities work at various jobs.” Caulfield said he paints in his Lakewood living room and wishes viewers could rotate his works for differing images. He also wishes no titles were needed,

“but that tends to be quite confusing.” The 2017 exhibit was the 52nd annual edition of this popular show. Early Littleton Fine Arts Board member Gene Kramer thought it would expand on the board’s goal of providing exhibition opportunities for artists, as well as providing local art lovers with an opportunity to not only see, but perhaps buy art. (Caulfield happily reported that five of his images have found buyers.) The Fine Arts Board is appointed by the Littleton City Council. Denise Weed is chair.

Town Hall Arts announces new season Anticipation is one of the great pleasures in life if properly appreciated, and fans of theater and live music now have a several months of anticipation ahead of them with the announcement of Littleton’s Town Hall Arts Center 37th season. The 2018-2019 season offers up five musicals and a play — “American Idiot” runs from Sept. 7 through Oct. 7, “A Christmas Carol: The Musical” from Nov. 9 through Dec. 23, “Casa Valentina” from Jan. 11 through Feb. 3, “Dames at Sea” from Feb. 15 through March 17, “The World Goes ‘Round” from March 29 through April 28, and the season closes with “Sister Act,” which runs from May 17 to June 16. For music lovers, the new season starts with the Littleton Jazz Festival at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 17, followed by Lannie Garrett’s “Swing Sets” running at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 11, 12, 13 and 2 p.m. on the 14th. The next performance is The Patsy Decline show, running at 7:30 p.m. on Oct. 18, 19, 20 and 2 p.m. on Oct. 21, followed by Buckstein’s performance at 7 p.m. on Jan. 13. The 17th Avenue Allstars Sunday, featuring the National Acappella Champions, is at 7 p.m. on Feb. 24, and The Nacho Men will be stopping by at 7 p.m. on March 3. Soul legend Hazel Miller is stopping by the center at 7 p.m. on April 7, followed by the Colorado Children’s Chorale at 7 p.m. on April 28. The season ends with the Deranged Divas at 7 p.m. on June 9. Season tickets are available now, and single tickets go on sale on July 24. For tickets and information on all the shows, visit www.TownHallArtsCenter.org. A different kind of school band concert Littleton’s School of Rock specifically caters to those looking to master the vital rock components — guitar, bass, drums, piano and vocals — and take their talents to stages in Denver and beyond.

and panels with all manners of creatives, it can be easy, especially for first-timers, to feel lost and unsure about what is acceptable and allowed by visitors. Pop culture Classroom set up a section of its website at www.denvercomiccon.com/ new-to-the-con/ to answer questions, and we spoke to Hubner and other participants to give advice for those new to the con.

School of Rock students will get the chance to live the life of a bar band at Moe’s Original BBQ, 3295 S. Broadway, at noon on Saturday, May 18, with their performance of The Doors vs. Jefferson Airplane. A pair of 1960s psychedelic rock titans, both bands made an enormous impact on musicians of the time and those still following in their footsteps 50 years later. Audiences will have the opportunity to decide which band is the better as students perform some of both bands’ best. For information and tickets, visit moesdenver.com/englewood-bbqrestaurant-sports-bar/events. Jazz to start the summer at Five Points One of the great things about jazz is the diversity of musicians and styles that fit comfortably inside this dynamic and vital genre. One of the best examples of this in the metro area is the annual Five Points Jazz Festival, which will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday, May 19

• Despite all the hoopla over celebrities and special events, Denver Comic Con very much still treasures the comic culture that created this cultural movement. Comic stores and dealers from the metro area and beyond will be selling current and classic books, and many stellar artists and writers will be on hand as well. • Andrew Middleton, a comic expert at Colorado Coins, Cards and Comics in Arvada, has attended the Comic Con numerous times, and said he loves meeting the variety of people who show up to share their love of the form. “There’s not one kind of person who loves comic books anymore,” he said. “My favorite part of the con is meeting people who you wouldn’t think are into this stuff, but it turns out really love it.” • There are two classes of comic buyers, as Middleton sees it — those who like to read the books and those who want to collect them. Those who want to read them are going to be focused on stories and characters, whereas the col-

and go to 1:30 a.m. on Sunday, May 20. The free, family-friendly festival features more than 45 bands playing on 10 stages on Welton Street, between 26th and 29th streets. Musicians will be performing all kinds of subgenres, from jazz and bop to swing and funk. Other activities include an art and food marketplace, a musicians’ jam session, film screenings, and a family zone featuring yoga, face painting, a giant slide, jumpy castle and more. This year’s grand marshals are Wende Harston and Jim “Daddio” Walker. For more information and complete schedule. visit www.ArtsandVenues. com/FivePointsJazz. Clarke’s Concert of the Week — Japandroids at the Ogden Last year, Vancouver’s Japandroids reaffirmed their status as one of the purest rock bands working in modern music with their third album, “Near to the Wild Heart of Life.”

lectors are going to be more interested in certain issues and willing to spend more money. Attendees should determine where their interests lie, as that will help guide their shopping. • One of the best things about the con, Middleton said, is meeting the local and regional artists that most shoppers won’t find online or in stores. Instead, they have the chance to buy them right from the source. • As with most things related to Comic Con, Middleton’s advice is to do research in advance. If a shopper is searching for a particular issue or collectible item, doing some research online will help narrow down the retailers to meet. “Most of these people are experts, so keep in mind the stories or characters you most care about, and they can offer recommendations,” he added. “Some vendors are going to feature the latest books, while others will be looking to highlight the rare stuff.”

I saw them on their first tour in years that March and they completely blew me away. Which means I can objectively say that nobody should miss Japandroids as they stop by the Ogden Theatre, 935 E. Colfax Avenue, at 8 p.m. on Tuesday, May 22. Not only will the show feature Japandroids but indie rock legends Wolf Parade. The group made some of the early 2000’s catchiest rock records and went on indefinite hiatus in 2011. The group returned in January of last year and released a great album called “Cry Cry Cry” in October. Together, Japandroids and Wolf Parade make up one of the best bills of the year, so tickets should be purchased posthaste. Visit www.ogdentheatre.com/events/detail/348589 for tickets and more.

Baseball teams set for state tournament STAFF REPORT

After regional tournaments May 12 and 13, teams are set to compete in the Class 3A, 4A and 5A double-elimination portion of the state baseball tournaments. Mountain Vista, Arapahoe, Heritage and Rock Canyon are south metro 5A teams that advanced. Valor Christian will be seeking its third straight 4A title and Lutheran is in the 3A field. Games during the first two days of the 5A state bracket on May 18-19 will be played at All-City Stadium and Metro State. Games for the final two days of the 5A event on May 2526 will be held at All-City Stadium. The 4A tournament will be held at All-Star Park in Lakewood and Bishop Machebeuf High School the first two days before moving to Metro State on May 25-26. The 3A tournament will be held in Greeley at Butch Butler Field and at Niwot High School. Mountain Vista, which routed Mullen 17-2 in the opener, beat Legend 10-5 to win the Region 1 championship and advanced to the doubleelimination state tournament. Grant Magill went 3-for-3 and drove in two runs against Legend and Sam Ireland also had three hits and two

SCHEDULE Undefeated Mountain Vista opens the double-elimination portion of the 5A state baseball tournament against Arapahoe in a 10 a.m. contest May 18 at All-City Stadium in Denver. Heritage plays Mountain Range in an opening 10 a.m. contest at Metro State on May 18, while Rock Canyon faces Pine Creek at Metro State in a 12:30 p.m. contest. Winners of the four opening games will play again May 18 at 3 p.m. First games in the losers bracket are set for May 19. Two-time defending 4A state champion Valor Christian opens with a 10 a.m. contest against Holy Family at Bishop Machebeuf on May 18. In the 3A bracket, Lutheran plays Lamar at 10 a.m. at Butch Butler Field in Greeley. All three tournaments continue May 19 with four teams advancing to games May 25-26. RBIs. Ireland had three hits and five RBIs in the victory over Mullen. Justin Boyd and Hank Bard each had a pair of hits for the Titans in the game against Vista. Arapahoe edged Fort Collins, 5-2, to win the Region 2 championship. The Warriors collected 14 hits against the Lambkins, who beat

Douglas County 3-2 in 10 innings, to advance to the finals. Preston Scheidt and Brandon Dryer each had three hits and Dryer drove in three runs to pace the Arapahoe attack. Dryer also had three hits and three RBIs in the Warriors’ 12-0 opening win over Prairie View. Heritage captured the Region 5 title with a 9-4 victory over Chaparral. The Eagles, which beat Chaparral 9-8 in eight innings on April 30, were led offensively by junior Eric McKnight who went 4-for-4, scored twice and had three RBIs in the 15hit attack. Rock Canyon knocked off perennial state contender Cherry Creek, 5-4, to win the Region 8 title. The Jaguars went 13 innings before earning a 6-4 victory over Monarch to move on to the title game. Valor Christian, which edged Kennedy 2-1 in the first game, posted an 11-4 victory over Berthoud to win the 4A Region 5 title. It was the 15th straight win for the two-time defending 4A state champion Eagles. Lutheran rode the one-hit pitching of junior Corbyn Seymore to a 7-0 shutout over Bennett in the finals of the Class 3A Region 2 tournament. Jacob Chwialkowski had three hits and Noa Vogel got two hits and three RBIs to pace the Lions’ offense.

t’s been said many times that golf is an unpredictable sport that requires plenty of mental grit. For myself, golf has always been pretty predictably bad, with a few good shots and holes but very few OVERTIME good rounds. And the mental fortitude has always been missing, since after a good hole, I have myself talked into botching the tee shot on the next hole. Highlands Ranch Jim Benton senior Jenna Chun know all about how golf can be unpredictable, but she has the mental strength to handle it, as she displayed last season at the Class 5A state tournament. After an opening round 83 at The Club at Rolling Hills, she rallied with a 1-under par 71 to tie Grandview’s Amy Chitkoksoong for medalist honors and force a playoff for the individual state title. Chun had a chance to win but missed a putt on the second playoff hole and also couldn’t hole a bogey putt on the third extra hole. Chitkoksoong ran in her bogey putt and was crowned the state champ with a bogey putt. It was a disheartening finish to a very good day but Chun faced the music, acted like a winner and answered question after question following the awards ceremonies. “The best I’ve ever seen Jenna Chun was after the state meet,” said Highlands Ranch coach Jon Cushing. “She took defeat with a lot of grace. Golf is such a mental sport. She has come back this year with a great mental attitude. She doesn’t let one high score on a hole affect her.” Chun, who carded a two-over-par 74 at the Central regional tournament at South Suburban on May 7, won three Continental League tournaments and the league’s Player of the Year. Ralston Valley coach Wendy Davis is another person who can attest to the unpredictability of a two-day state tournament. The Mustangs were five shots off the lead after the opening round but won their first state golf championship by nine shots after a remarkable round in which the average round for the three scoring golfers was 76.3.

Cherry Creek girls capture tennis crown Twin sisters win titles for Bruins

BY JIM BENTON JBENTON@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Tennis is in the blood of Cherry Creek’s freshman twin sisters Eliza and Nicole Hill. It’s something natural for them because the family has played and watched a lot of tennis. The sisters helped the Bruins win the Class 5A state championship May 11 at the Gates Tennis Center. Eliza won the No. 2 singles state title when she defeated Alexis Bernthal of Fairview, 6-1, 6-3. Nicole captured the No. 3 singles crown with a 6-3, 6-1 victory over Jenesse Johnson of Denver East. The Bruins easily won their second straight state title and 34th overall with 85 points compared to 38 for runner-up Poudre.

FROM PAGE 31

Wait until next year Next season’s Class 5A girls state tennis tournament could be very interesting because most of the freshman standouts from this year’s tourney will be back and be more experienced and better players. There was definitely a youth movement this season with six of the 12 players in the Class 5A singles semifinals being freshmen. There were 31 freshmen who played in tournament

Creek. Robby, now a freshman at Villanova, was a No. 2 singles champion for Creek in 2016 and brother Drew, a junior, was second at No. 1 doubles last fall. “I’ve been coming here for so long watching my brothers, cheering them on and now I finally got to play on these courts,” said Eliza. “It’s amazing. I don’t have words to describe how

great this is, coming in as a freshman and taking the state championship.” Eliza played at No. 2 singles after beating her sister in two early season challenge matches. “I got lucky,” said Eliza. “I’m not better than her. We usually split wins depending on who has the better day. I just happened to have two better days.” Nicole echoed her sister’s thoughts about winning a state title after watching her brothers and then emphasized there was no pressure about playing in a Cherry Creek program that has had so much success in tennis. Besides the Hills, the Bruins won three doubles titles as Micha Handler and Miranda Kawula were first in No. 1 doubles, Anna Fusaris and Halley Mackiernan at No. 2 doubles, and Emily Wilkins and Dahlia Rappaport captured the No. 4 doubles crown. The tournament was condensed to two days from three because of the threat of rainy weather on May 12, but the change didn’t stop Rock Canyon sophomore Meghna Chowdhury from making school history. She became the first Rock Canyon player to advance to the state finals. She lost 6-4, 6-4 in the No. 1 singles finale to Poudre’s Ky Eaton, who won her second straight championship. “When I first got on the court, it was Notice nerve-racking, withPublic so many people FOR BID (IFB), who with cameras,”INVITATION said Chowdhury NO. 016-18 didn’t qualify for theA.state tournament ROBERT CHRISTENSEN JUSTICE CENTER last season. “But this wasCOURTROOM the first MILLWORK REPAIRS & REPLACEMENT time anybody from Rock Canyon has Facilities, Fleet and Emergency Support made theThe finals. “ Services Department of Douglas County Gov-
