MY NAME IS

APEAKSHA RAINA

Mrs. Colorado International highlights cause of organ donation About me I was born in Jammu and Kashmir, India, in a giant family. I was raised by my mother, Usha Raina, because I lost my father, Ashok Kumar Raina, at a very young age because of kidney failure. She is the epitome of courage and strength. I did my master’s in business administration. I worked with an HR company at an IT company. In 2012 we moved to New York. Last year my husband, Tejinder Pal, and I transferred to beautiful and colorful Colorado. I have a beautiful daughter, Zena Raina Pal. She is 18 months old. I’m blessed to have her in my life. She is our world. I was crowned Mrs. Colorado International by the International Pageant Judging Committee in April. I am competing in the Mrs. International pageant July 16 in Charleston, West Virginia. What is the Mrs. International pageant? It is one of the most prestigious pageants in the world. It’s not only

your physical attributes. It is a platform-based pageant. I was selected through a comprehensive application and interview process. There will be 66 contestants from across the country and the globe for the title of Mrs. International 2018. All the ladies have a platform. My platform is organ and tissue donation and a goodwill ambassador for Donor Alliance. When you’re a kid, you only see the glitz and glamour side of it. But this one caught my eye because it is platform-based. I lost my dad because of kidney failure. I know how painful it is to lose a loved one and I don’t want anyone to go through the same thing. I was a daddy’s girl. That incident changed my entire life. I wanted to do something in the community to raise awareness and to inspire people about the life-saving benefits of organ and tissue donation. I want people to know ... Organ and tissue donation is very important. By simply saying “yes” at the driver’s license office for organ and tissue donation, we can save lives. I have been through it. It is so difficult for someone to lose their loved one. My message is, I cannot change my past, but I can definitely try to change someone’s present and future. By promoting this platform, I can reach and educate people. Once you are gone,

arge crowds flooded Parker’s weekly farmers market on Mainstreet July 8, perusing the dozens of locally owned stands on a hot Sunday morning. The weekly farmers market topped off an event-filled weekend in downtown Parker, beginning with the First Friday Art Walk on July 6, which featured four new sculptures from Douglas County Art Encounters along Mainstreet. Local paintings, drawings and photographs were displayed in the windows of local businesses as passersby sipped wine to start the weekend. From local produce to kombucha, vendors from all over the state conjoined at the Parker farmers market to close out the weekend. Although large crowds moved busily up and down Mainstreet to get their shopping done, the go-to hangout spot was underneath the shady trees that line east Mainstreet, kombucha and ice cream in tow.

Sterling Ranch welcomes 100th family Homeowners weigh in on life in development under construction BY ALEX DEWIND ADEWIND@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

D

ave and Leslie Samson had been married five years and were looking to transition from a two-story home in Denver to a ranch-style home they could call their own. After touring several areas, disappointed with either the layout or the community, they decided to look at spec homes in Sterling Ranch. They fell in love with one in the masterplanned community in northwest Douglas County. The Samsons, both in their late 50s, are the 29th homeowners to live in the development, which is on a 20-year buildout schedule that is expected to end with 12,000 homes and 33,000 residents. Earlier this year, they moved into their one-story home with large hallways, spacious rooms and a basement for additional space. They have a neighbor on one side of their home and their backyard faces a pocket park. They have a view of Mount Evans. “It’s a small lot but we are not crowded,” Dave Samson said. “I just think this is going to be a very good place for us as we get older.” Sterling Ranch sits west of Santa Fe Drive and south of Chatfield Reservoir, just east of the Roxborough community and next to Roxborough State Park. Paved roads weave through pockets of homes with a variety of layouts and designs, surrounded by unfinished homes and construction equipment. Founders Harold and Diane Smethills purchased the land in 2004. The $4.4 billion multigenerational, eco-friendly development is planned to encompass 3,400 acres of homes, schools, churches, shopping, recreation, trails and the latest in technology. This summer, Sterling Ranch welcomed its 100th family and hit half a billion dollars in development investment. Another 200 homes are in various stages of construction. Homes start in the mid $400,000s and many are listed in the $500,000 to $700,000 range on the development’s website. Some high-end options go into the millions. “There is just a lot of en-

Dave and Leslie Samson, the 29th homeowners in Sterling Ranch, sit in the backyard of their one-story house. Both widowed, the Samsons married five years ago and wanted to buy a place of their own. “We get to enjoy it and we know there is not another move in our future,” said Leslie Samson. COURTESY PHOTO

As Sterling Ranch grows, pocket parks pop up in neighborhoods. The development’s first village, Providence, hit 100 residents this summer. ALEX DEWIND thusiasm and momentum,” Harold Smethills said. Fast internet is crucial In the summer of 2015, construction of the development’s water and electrical infrastructures began. Two years ago, the first model homes broke ground in one of eight villages, or community

areas comprising a variety of home styles, from modern to traditional, one-story to multilevel. The first village, called Providence, will have nearly 800 single-family homes, 85 acres of open space, one school, a church, a civic center, a recreation center and a fiber optic network.

Residents have access to one of the fastest internet speeds available in the U.S., CenturyLink’s 1-gigabit service. Homes and businesses are also interconnected by a virtual touch-screen that controls technology and energy usage. “The key is the gigabit speed, and that is working beautifully for us,” Smethills said. “A large number of homeowners work from home because of the bandwith.” Dave Samson, who works in IT, is enjoying the ease of adjusting his sprinklers from his cell phone. But the virtual system has been somewhat difficult to navigate, he said. “We have all TVs connected and almost never have any performance issues,” he said. “The system itself is a little complicated. We haven’t tried the automated light system yet.” Rocky road The Smethillses have encountered challenges along the way. In 2011, Sterling Ranch drew

opposition from residents of Chatfield, a small community of 65 people that sits near the development’s northwest border. The Chatfield Community Association filed a lawsuit against Douglas County’s approval of Sterling Ranch, arguing the project did not have proof of a sufficient water supply. The residents also worried about the negative impact on their rural way of life. But the Smethillses have continued to put water, energy and quality of life at the forefront of their planning process. Sterling Ranch is the state’s first rainwater harvesting community. A storm management system will collect rainwater from commercial buildings and street gutters to store in tanks and retention ponds. About 40 percent will be used for irrigation. As the development progresses, Titan Road, a choppy two-lane road that connects the development to Santa Fe Drive, will be expanded to four lanes to fix what Harold Smethills calls a “roller-coaster speedway.” The portion of the road from Sante Fe to the development’s first neighborhood has already been expanded. For every home built in Sterling Ranch, $3,000 goes to county roads that need repairs. “That’s $37 million in new money that will be going to Douglas County,” Harold Smethills said. “The essence of good land planning is solving community problems. The infrastructure in northwest Douglas County is in terrible shape.” Home sweet home Despite heaps of construction surrounding them, the Samsons are pleased with their new home. They sit on their back patio and greet people walking by. Their neighbors are a mix — young couples, working professionals, families and singles. They look forward to a civic center opening later this year and a recreation center and pool that is expected to open next year. The extra space in the basement will be used during visits from their children and grandchildren, they said. They commended Harold and Diane Smethills for their planning process. “They are very thoughtful and they care about the community and the nature around us,” said Leslie Samson. “They just want to be good stewards of the land they own.”

Aerospace attraction coming to Centennial Airport First phase of Wings Over the Rockies’ new campus to open July 21 BY ELLIS ARNOLD EARNOLD@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Aviation enthusiasts in the metro area are in for a new experience when an attraction by Wings Over the Rockies opens at Centennial Airport July 21. Visitors will be able to engage with interactive and educational exhibits, watch airplanes take off and land, test flight simulators, and even listen to radio chatter from the airport’s airtraffic control tower. “You can hear what the pilot is hearing,” said Ben Theune, director of marketing for Wings Over the Rockies, a nonprofit that works to educate about aviation and space. The Boeing Blue Sky Aviation Gallery will be the first phase to open of the nonprofit’s Exploration of Flight campus — the nonprofit calls it unique to the nation — where enthusiasts can have fun but also help solve a looming problem in the aerospace industry. “In aerospace in general, there’s a huge lack of qualified personnel,” Theune said. “Boeing estimates that over the next 18 years, in the aviation industry alone, 2 million workers will need to fill pilot gaps, aircraft-main-

tenance gaps, engineering, air-traffic control — the whole bit.” The Blue Sky Aviation Gallery will offer the virtual-reality experience of flying in an aircraft and possibly will show what it’s like to work other roles in flight, like being in air-traffic control, Theune said. The virtual-reality experiences will complement flightsimulator machines, interacting with the latest industry technology and even the ability to experience flying in a plane through a partnership with the Aspen Flying Club. After nearly a decade of planning and fundraising, the 19,000-square-foot hangar will be open to the public Fridays and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sundays from noon to 5 p.m., beginning July 21. The facility sits at 13005 Wings Way in unincorporated Arapahoe County near East County Line Road and South Peoria Street, on the southeast side of the airport. The campus will also eventually feature the Ozmen Black Sky Space Gallery, based around “cutting-edge space technology and concepts,” the nonprofit’s website said. Construction on that project will begin in 2019, the website said. Other parts of Wings Over the Rockies’ 15-acre property at the airport

The training I had in elementary school definitely prepared me for the job I have now. I went to Colorado State University and got a bachelor’s in science and human development and family studies. After that, I went to Metro State University for my teaching license and completed my student teaching training. I got my master’s at the University of Northern Colorado in special education gifted and talented. My first teaching job was in the Cherry Creek School District. I was a sub for about a year and a half, which led me to become a long-term sub for two gifted and talented classrooms that had yearlong school.

It’s really important for me to include my students in my decisions, how we go about doing things. I’ll tell them the state says we need to cover this and we work together on how to get there. I can’t say I do this on everything, but if there is an opportunity, we are going to sit down and talk about it. My goal is to make things as real as possible. Students are encouraged to discover.

them figure it out. My ultimate goal is when they walk out of my door they are an autonomous learner. How do you feel about being a recipient of PAEMST? The award itself validates that when you are passionate about math and science and help your students see that it’s important, they are going to carry that with them. There are so many jobs right now in the STEM field that our students can be part of and really eat up. I think students at a young age need to understand that science, math, technology and engineering are fun and exciting and there is so much opportunity for them to grow and blossom in those areas. What I think is really cool and a little scary is the majority of jobs they are going to be applying for don’t even exist today. I think that there are a lot of deserving teachers of this award. I’m blown away every day with the amazing ideas that my colleagues have and I know there are so many people out there that would benefit greatly by having this experience. What keeps you going? During my time at Pine Lane, every principal I’ve had has been extremely supportive and has believed in me and what I can do with the Discovery Program. Because of that, I’ve been given a lot of freedom to do what I think is right. I’ve also worked with some of the most amazing teachers under the sun. Ultimately what keeps my fire burning is the creativity and excitement from the students. They are my pride and joy.

The ‘Gap’ project on I-25 won’t significantly affect environment, report says BY JESSICA GIBBS JGIBBS@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

The Colorado Department of Transportation and the Federal Highway Administration have signed a “Finding of No Significant Impact,” affirming plans to fix the Gap south of Castle Rock will not significantly affect the environment within the project site. CDOT has worked on a Planning and Environmental Linkages study examining the 34-mile stretch of Interstate 25 between C-470 and Monument for more than a year, according to a news release issued by Douglas County. The Gap spans approximately 18 miles within that area, beginning south of Castle Rock and ending with

Monument. The roadway is notorious for creating a bottleneck, where the interstate shrinks to two lanes in each direction, and unpredictable travel times. CDOT announced in April when it debuted its environmental assessment of the Gap it planned to widen that portion of I-25 by adding one toll lane in each direction. A roughly one-month public comment period followed. That feedback is also available in the FONSI on CDOT’s website, codot.gov. Improvements to the Gap are set to cost $350 million and also include replacing bridges, adding wildlife crossings and widening shoulders for emergency management situations. “Signing the FONSI is significant,” CDOT Executive Director Michael Lewis said in the release. “This is a necessary step before we can break ground on one of the most critical transportation projects in the state.”

More housing options coming to Trails at Crowfoot BY NICK PUCKETT NPUCKETT@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

More options for housing in Parker will be available at the Trails at Crowfoot neighborhood sometime in the next two years. The town council approved a preliminary plan amendment at its biweekly meeting July 2 at the Parker Town Hall, the beginning phase of the construction of 68 duplex homes in the Trails at Crowfoot neighborhood at the intersection of Bayou Gulch Road and North Pinery Parkway. The complex, with 136-single family homes in all, will be located

just east of Crowfoot Valley. Chris Elliott, of E5X Management Inc., the applicant for the amendment, said the homes will cost from the low to mid $400,000s. The project will begin within the next three weeks and vertical construction will begin by July of next year. The duplexes will have strong front porches and garages in the rear, similar to those in The Meadows community in Castle Rock. The master plan for the neighborhood includes several “pocket parks” located in various spots. One park is planned to have a soccer field, baseball field and small swimming pool adjacent to the initial buildings.

Local youths qualify for fencing nationals STAFF REPORT

Seven Parker youth athletes qualified for the USA Fencing National Championships and July Challenge in sabre fencing. Sidney White, Brendan Barber, Danae Johnson, Braedon Jackson, Ashton Goering, Matthew Waid, and Clio Johnson were scheduled to compete from June 28 to July 7.

South Metro Fire Rescue crews help battle wildfires Eight firefighters from South Metro have been sent to three locations BY NICK PUCKETT NPUCKETT@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

As Colorado celebrated Independence Day, six wildfires of 1,000 acres or more were challenging fire crews across the state. Personnel from South Metro Fire Rescue were among those working to douse the flames. South Metro recently deployed three crews to battle blazes in Durango, Costilla and Huerfano counties, and Pike National Forest. One South Metro firefighter was deployed to assist crews at the 416 fire in Durango, a crew of three was sent to the Spring Creek Fire in southern Colorado and another crew of four was sent to mitigate small fires in the Pike National Forest.

Fire restrictions abound in Denver metro area

16-hour days or work overnight if needed. “There’s not a lot of glamour to it, but the great thing is we get to help other communities when they need help,” Hurst said. On July 4, South Metro personnel at the Spring Creek Fire worked alongside hundreds of other firefighters throughout the day and night in an effort to prevent the spreading of what grew to a more than 100,000-acre fire. The blaze, located in both Costilla and Huerfano counties, became the third largest wildfire in state history was responsible for the destruction of more than 100 homes. Hurst said metro-area residents should be mindful of possible fire hazards by avoiding the use of things that get hot, cause sparks or an open flame when there is high fire danger. Something as simple as mowing a lawn on a hot, dry day can spark a small fire, he said. For any questions regarding fire safety, email reducingrisk@ southmetro.org. Hurst directed residents who want to donate supplies for firefighters and affected families to the American Red Cross, www. redcross.org/local.

Customers can purchase state parks passes at self-service kiosks STAFF REPORT

Colorado State Parks has rolled out new self-serve kiosks that allow customers to purchase daily and annual state parks passes. The kiosks replace or augment existing systems that require customers to place cash in envelopes when staff members are not available. The machines take credit cards and are more weather-resistant than the envelope system. They are more convenient for customers who do not carry cash and require less employee time to collect payment. “Not a lot of people have exactly seven dollars (for a daily park pass) in their pockets,”

Kirk Teklits, parks and wildlife statewide business operations coordinator, said in a news release. “As far as customer service goes, being able to pay by credit card is definitely a desirable service option.” Customers who purchase an annual pass from the kiosk will get a printed receipt that they can then take into a parks and wildlife office to redeem. Teklits said 15 stations are installed at nine parks and more will be coming later this summer. “Most of the kiosks run on solar power, provide multiple sales channels to our customers, and help our staff with money collection and counting,” Teklits said. “It also helps our

Parker police say an unidentified woman is the main suspect in the alleged theft of more than $1,000 worth of vitamins and supplements from a Sprouts grocery store, according to the department’s website. The woman was captured on a security camera while entering the store on Parker Road June 22 at about 12:20 p.m., the report reads. She is seen in the

security photo wearing a yellow dress with a dark cardigan. She is entering the store with a push cart and what appears to be a large white bag in the main compartment. The report says police estimate the suspect to be abut 40 to 50 years old. The Parker Police Department is asking for help in identifying the suspect. Any information is asked to be reported to officer Brad Bankston at 303-8056578.

Woman wants climb to highlight mental health 65-year-old sets sights on summit of Kilimanjaro BY NICK PUCKETT NPUCKETT@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

A local woman is setting out to summit Mount Kilimanjaro at age 65 in an effort to raise awareness for mental health. Claire Averill, of Highlands Ranch, will begin her eight-day trip up the highest point in Africa on July 12. She said the climb will be an intense struggle for her to bring to light the lifetime of struggle people with a mental illness suffer. Averill said this would all be new to her. “I wanted to do something that I felt would be a struggle for me because of what those go through that are afflicted with any mental health condition,” Averill said. “Their life is a struggle sometimes. To me, this was something that was outside the box

for me and would be a struggle. That was my equation.” Averill is part of the Happy Crew, an advocacy group that raises awareness of suicide in Douglas County. Specifically, the group reaches out to high school students. Averill said she lost a friend in college to suicide and wants people to understand how to prevent it. “We need to talk about mental health, we need to talk about mental illness. We need to talk about suicide and understand it’s a product of a mental illness,” Averill said. “That’s where this all starts. It usually starts in high school where kids for whatever reason don’t feel great. And if we ignore it, that’s what happens.” Averill spoke at an event in Lone Tree on June 29 to gain exposure for the Happy Crew, joined by Andrew Romanoff, CEO of Mental Health Colorado. To donate to the Happy Crew’s cause, visit thehappycrew. org.

Claire Averill will begin her climb up Mount Kilimanjaro, the tallest mountain in Africa, July 12 to help raise awareness for mental health and the Happy Crew campaign to raise awareness of teen suicide. COURTESY PHOTO

Human-dog relationship status: ‘It’s uncomplicated’ QUIET DESPERATION

W

hy does your dog lick your face? You say, “My dog doesn’t lick my face.” Do me a favor, and just play along. Your dog licks your face because it tastes like a ham on rye. How can your face taste like a ham on rye if you’re a vegetarian? It can’t. This isn’t the correct answer. Harry is almost 9 months old, and he still licks my face, especially first thing in the morning. I am undecided about it.

It is either a good example of bad parenting, or rather pleasurable. After all, I am a Scorpio. It makes me think about the queen and her corgis. Do any of them wake the queen with their tongues, as it were? I doubt it. My guess is her corgis are trained before she meets them, and she misses out on all of the fun I am having with Harry. Harry licks my face for a number of reasons, according to everything I have read.

It’s a sign of affection. Harry is showing his gratitude. For what? He doesn’t live in a home with an Elvis impersonator. He doesn’t live in a home with country music. He doesn’t live in a home with cats. He’s grateful because he lives in a home. It means we’re friends. He licks me because there are tiny food particles in my skin? Unfortunately, it’s probably true.

It relieves stress. Maybe you know someone who bites their nails. Licking is similar. Harry doesn’t bite his nails. I wish he would. I have to take him to the vet to get it done, and it’s not cheap. Do it myself ? I don’t think he would sit still long enough. I would end up trimming his nose. Licking releases pleasurable endorphins. His or mine? SEE SMITH, P15

How pets help keep us healthy as we age

appiness is a warm puppy. Who doesn’t love the feel of fur between your fingers, or the nicker of a horse when they see you come into the barn? The importance of the human-animal LIVING AND bond has been AGING WELL increasingly recognized and studied in the last 30 years. For those of us who have felt the nuzzle of a cold nose in our hand, or warmth of a cat settled in our lap, we have firsthand experience of the power of an Kelly Diehl animal’s love. In an increasingly fractured and hectic world, where family can be separated by long distances and busy schedules, pets can help fill an important role in providing companionship and purpose for seniors.

This actually happened last week. Someone replied to my question, “What is the best news of the day?” with this text, “Nothing, it’s been a tough 48 hours.” My reply, “Understood, let me know how I can help.” Their reply, “Well, your offer to help is now my best news of the day, thanks.” Like a good joke, motivation and inspiration require the right timing and delivery or they can seem off-putting and offensive. Some may find that hard to believe; however, life brings real challenges and trying times, and when we are in one of those seasons of life, what we need is more hope and encouragement instead of motivation and inspiration. They are very much the same; however, certain situations call for one

Some of Harry’s current behavior will be trained out of him, and some of it will end on its own. He’ll grow out of many of the things he is doing now. Truth is, I know I am going to miss some of it. By reason, age, and logic, Harry is my fourth and final dog. He might outlive me. I will never have another puppy of my own in my life. Once or twice a day, he runs a figure-8 around the living room and dining room and it’s a blur. I have no idea how he does it. Around the dining room table into the living room, behind the couch, and back to the dining room. Lap after lap. And then he comes to an immediate

Although it seems intuitive that pet ownership would be beneficial, what do we really know about the health benefits of pet ownership? There are many documented health benefits to pet ownership. Several studies have shown that interactions with animals (not necessarily pet ownership) can decrease blood pressure, lower cholesterol, and help treat depression. A very recent study showed that Alzheimer’s patients who interacted with animals had improved cognition. Of course, many studies suggest that people who own dogs get more exercise, although other studies contend that people who are active tend to exercise more with their pets. Although the jury is still out on the effect of pets and exercise, there is no question that interactions with animals improve many measurements of well-being. A few lesser known, but equally important benefits of pet ownership include enhanced self-

more than the other. Now we need to remember what Zig Ziglar said about motivation, “People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well neither does bathing, that is why we recommend it daily.” What a great quote and reminder for anyone needing a little pick me up. And I can share with you that there is no better way to get motivated and stay motivated than by being a source of motivation to others, offering hope and encouragement whenever we can. So how about you? What is your “Best news of the day?” I would love to hear you story at gotonorton@gmail. com and when we can stay connected and offer our love, support, hope, and encouragement, it really will be a better than good week.

discipline and self-worth, and more opportunities for meeting people. As one recent AARP article put it, “Pets are natural born ice breakers!” Pet ownership is not without its downside for seniors. Although there are many documented benefits, there are some downsides to pet ownership. Veterinary care can be expensive, and, for folks on a fixed income, can be a drain on limited resources. As seniors elect to move into assisted living or other types of housing, they can encounter restrictions on size or type of pet, or whether pets are allowed at all. Many physicians are concerned about the potential for injuries or falls for older pet owners — and sometimes a pet can be injured if stepped or fallen on. Thinking outside the box of traditional pet ownership can provide

alternative options. As mentioned above, many studies show that simply interacting with animals on a regular basis can have positive health effects. Volunteering at a shelter or rescue can be a rewarding experience — not only can it give you your animal “fix,” helping out also provides muchneeded support to our most vulnerable animals. Many shelters and rescue groups also need volunteers to foster pets for a short time before permanently placing them in a forever home. This can be a great way to get the benefit of having an animal in your home without a long-term commitment. If you travel frequently to visit family members you may find fostering dogs and cats a rewarding experience and one that fits with your lifestyle. You can even foster guinea pigs! SEE AGING, P33

we saw in the Capital Gazette tragedy. Awful. Tragic. Sad. However, I have to take issue with his analysis and defense of todays’ journalism. For those of us who remember the “Dragnet” TV series and the iconic line by Sgt. Friday, “just the facts mam, just the facts,” it’s a quaint reminder of how journalism used to be when the “hard news” did report the facts and nothing but the facts. Sadly that is not the case any longer and the industry has lost its credibility and respect as a result. And it won’t improve until the industry and Mr. Raehal fully recognize this reality. Mr. Raehal lets us know that journalists “care,” and I am sure that is true. But the issue he is not addressing, or glossing over on purpose, is that the mainstream media today is not informing — they are building bias and their own liberal agenda into news articles we see in newspapers and on TV news. That is the true threat to our republic, contrary to his contention. I offer just one of many examples: Does anyone believe that Jim Acosta of CNN, who is a reporter, not an opinion commentator, is “informing” us when his questions are nothing more than editorials with a gotcha question at the end of it? Greg Nierling Centennial Where’s Gardner’s voice? In your June 28 issue you gave us brief statements from Colorado lawmakers and the governor reacting to family separations on the border. For some reason there were six photographs but only five statements — no

comment from Cory Gardner – just a photo. Maybe your readers would like to know what Mr. Gardner has to say on the subject. Darryl Shaw Lone Tree

President trying to fix situation Regarding the article “Colorado politicians react to family separation”: The subhead, “White House rolled out, then halted, policy of separating children” is a misrepresentation implying President Trump and his administration are responsible for the separation of illegal immigrant children from their families (assuming the children even belong to families at the border). The Flores Consent Decree from 1997 differs. It says that unaccompanied children can be held only 20 days. A ruling by the Ninth Circuit extended this 20-day limit to children who come as part of family units. So even if we want to hold a family unit together, we are forbidden from doing so. Separation has been going on since 1997. President Trump’s executive order is an attempt at fixing it. We have had an essentially open border as previous presidents practiced catch and release. President Trump is simply trying to enforce immigration laws. As for politician’s reactions the article quotes four liberals and one straddling representative (Coffman). Cory Gardner’s quote earlier ignores the 1997 Decree as he also panders. The headline should read “Colorado politicians pander to family separation.” George Sullivan Centennial

Carjacking suspect shot by camper at Devil’s Head The man is in stable condition and will face charges in El Paso and Douglas counties BY JESSICA GIBBS JGIBBS@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

A carjacking suspect authorities say was shot multiple times in a confrontation with a person camping at Devil’s Head is in stable condition and will face charges in two counties for stealing a vehicle and shooting at random citizens before being detained. The Douglas County Sheriff ’s Office is not identifying the 29-year-old male suspect at this time. Charges have yet to be determined but could include attempted murder and felony menacing. The incident began at 2:09 p.m. July 2 when the suspect carjacked a vehicle in El Paso County and escaped to the Pike National Forest, allegedly shooting at passing vehicles along the way, according to a

sheriff ’s office news release. The suspect then stopped at a Devil’s Head campground and approached a camper at the site. The male camper was also armed and shot at the suspect, who had pointed a rifle at them. The Manitou Springs Police Department arrived first to the scene, followed by Douglas County deputies. Authorities called for medical assistance to treat the suspect. He was ultimately airlifted to an area hospital, a Douglas County Sheriff ’s Office spokeswoman said. Only the suspect was injured in the incident. He will likely be booked in the Douglas County jail but will remain in the hospital for an undetermined length of time following surgery. The Douglas County Sheriff ’s Office has asked the public to avoid all Devil’s Head campsites for 48 hours while the crime scene is being processed. Douglas County will lead an investigation into the Devil’s Head shooting, and El Paso County will run a separate investigation into the carjacking, the spokeswoman said.

hen Parker resident Michelle Ullman began preparing for the first season of her television show, “On the Menu with Michelle Ullman,” it was important that she “put our fork where our mouth is.” Which meant filming episode one at La Baguette de Normandy in Parker and doing the rest of the 10-episode season in the Denver metro area. “Supporting local should lead by example and start at home,” Ullman said. “There is a wonderful film/TV community here, some of whom I hope to hire on as we grow into making feature films. Denver is primarily a commercial market. We hope to add some film work here.” Ullman is just one example of a growing group of creatives looking to do more filming in the metro area. Denver native Haylar Garcia recently released his third film, a horror movie titled “Apartment 212,” which was shot in the metro area and in his RiNo studio. The movie was released at the Sie FilmCenter in Denver as well as theaters in Los Angeles, New York, Seattle, Detroit and other major cities. “There are so any great artists in the area that deserve a voice, and so many creative communities that deserve to be employed,” he said. “It just seems like the right thing to do to bring national talent here to be a part of it all.” The Colorado Office of Film, Television and Media works to bring in storytellers of all kinds to the state, including filmmakers, animators, gamers and photographers. The office connects these storytellers to resources they need, like location assistance, crew referrals and inter-governmental cooperation. Perhaps most importantly, the Colorado Office of Film offers an incentive program that provides a 20 percent cash rebate for eligible production costs. The incentive program covers feature films, television pilots, television series, television commercials, music videos, industrials, documentaries, and video game design and creation, as well as other forms of content creation. “Keeping the film incentive active will be a big factor in bringing people to the state,” Ullman said. “Keeping a pool of skilled crew, and talented actors to offer filmmakers here in Denver is also important. The current Colorado incentive is only valid on Colorado residents, so the more we can offer them in crew and talent, the less has to be brought in from out of state.” SEE FILIMING, P20

Visual musician’s display sounds like good time

T

he first time artist Scramble Campbell visited Red Rocks was during a sold-out run of Widespread Panic performances in 2000. In that kind of atmosphere, he couldn’t help but do what comes naturally to him — painting the musicians live. “I’d been traveling around to local shows in Florida and the rest of the country doing these live paintings,” COMING he said. “I still ATTRACTIONS do about 80 to 100 of these kinds of paintings a year. In the years since that first Red Rocks show, I’ve done more than 430 live paintings at Red Rocks.” Every year, Campbell puts Clarke Reader together a show of his works, and this year the 14th annual Scramble Campbell Red Rocks Art Experience will be on display at the amphitheater, 18300 W. Alameda Parkway in Morrison, through July 22. This exhibit is open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., reopening during concerts until the end of the show. The man himself will be available for tours and discussions, and he’ll also be painting at concerts through July 22. “I like to shake up the exhibit based on who is playing a show,” Campbell explained. “When the Avett Brothers or Blues Traveler are playing, the exhibit features previous works I’ve done inspired by their performances.” Red Rocks is unquestionably the best venue in the country, according to Campbell, and he sees what he does as a different kind of performance that nonetheless fits into the venue. “I’m really an artistic and visual musician,” he said. “And there’s a visual thread of the venue that is part of every painting.” To learn more about Campbell, check out www.scramblecampbell. com. ‘Daily Show’ correspondent stops by Comedy Works If you’re a longtime watcher of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show,” like I am, you know how easy it is to get attached to correspondents, and one of the best in the current iteration of the show is Roy Wood Jr. SEE READER, P20

The POWER is blowin’ in the wind Rush Creek project will provide electricity for 325,000 homes BY TABATHA STEWART SPECIAL TO COLORADO COMMUNITY MEDIA

On the hottest day of the year so far, dozens of Elbert County residents, local and state elected officials and Xcel Energy representatives gathered at the home of Jan and Virgil Kochis in Matheson, to get a peek at the latest of 30 wind turbines that were recently completed on the Kochis property, as part of Xcel’s first major wind farm project: Rush Creek Wind Farm. “This farm has been in our family for more than 100 years,” said Jan Kochis, property owner and chair of the Rocky Mountain Farmers Union Board. “Virgil’s grandparents settled here. This may make it possible for the family farm to stay in the family another 100 years.” When the Rush Creek project is completed and fired up this October, it will provide energy for approximately 325,000 homes in Colorado. While renewable energy is much needed in the state, Kochis said the installation of the turbines on their property — which is east of Simla and west of Limon — will provide much-needed income during a year of above-average temperatures and below-average rainfall, making it a tough year for growing crops. h “The new income that these turbines provide will create more certainty for our farming operations by helping balance against the roller-coaster commodity markets and unpredictable weather,” Kochis said during the June 28 event. State Rep. Kimmi Lewis applauded landowners like the Kochises for their willingness to lease their land and drive economic development within the county. ”I’m honored to be on Virgil and Jan’s property today,” said Lewis. “This is true economic development, and I so much endorse that type of growth in rural areas. The day will come when we look out, like today, and see wind turbines. I applaud those landowners who are willing to do that.” Elbert County Commissioner Grant Thayer said each turbine brings in about $4,000 annually in property tax, and provides an alternative to farming in rough years. “It’s another income stream for agriculture people in Colorado,” said Thayer. ”We’ve had strong support, and the locals like it.” Residents had concerns about the extensive amount of work that goes into erecting the turbines, including increased traffic and dust that comes from truck traffic on rural dirt roads. Neighbor Tim Brown said he has held out leasing his farm for wind turbines, but he attended the June 28 tour of the farm, and spoke to the crowd that gathered. “It’s all been pretty good,” Brown

HOW DO WIND TURBINES WORK? According to the Wind Energy Foundation, people have harnessed the energy of the wind as far back as 5000 B.C., when boats were propelled along the Nile River using only wind, and later, when in the late 19th century windmills came into use to pump water for farms and ranches. While the simple design of a windmill has remained the same over the years, the latest iteration of electricity-generating wind turbines are much larger, generate more electricity, and distribute the electricity much farther than their ancestors. Erecting today’s wind turbines is much more complicated. First, a wind turbine must be installed, which involves erecting three tower sections, totaling a height of about 260 feet. At the top of the tower the hub and nacelle, which house all of the generating components, are placed, with three blades, approximately 177 feet long, attached to the hub. Each foundation requires about 300 yards of concrete and reinforced steel. Electricity is generated within the nacelle when the wind blows, which spins a shaft connected to a generator that creates electricity. The electricity created is transmitted through lines down through the tower to substations, where it is released into the power grid and distributed. said. ”We got along really well as far as the construction and the extra traffic.” Attendees were given a tour of the Kochis property, and got up close and personal with a turbine, which towers approximately 260 feet above the ground. Cattle grazed in the field below the turbines, and signs of crops growing in the surrounding field showed that land leased for turbines can still be used for grazing and growing. Xcel project manager Gerry Kelly answered questions about the construction and working of the wind turbines. “The towers are 80 meters tall, with three blades that measure about 54 meters each (about 177 feet),” said Kelly. ”The hub generates the electricity that is transmitted to a substation before being released into the Xcel Energy grid.” Placement of the towers is an important factor when designing a wind farm. According to Kelly the towers are placed a quarter-mile apart, with about 1,000 to 1,200 yards necessary in front and behind each tower. The blades are electronically controlled, and can be manipulated to maximize the wind, as well as be turned off in the event of too much wind. Kelly said it could take years of studying wind patterns before a site is deemed a good fit for a wind farm. Kochis said she knew some people didn’t like the changing landscape that wind farms bring, but she doesn’t mind seeing the turbines outside her window. “I enjoy every day looking out my kitchen window and seeing the majestic wind turbines through my trees,” Kochis said.

FILMING

FROM PAGE 18

As anyone who has traveled the state can attest to, the variety of scenery Colorado has to offer is one of the biggest draws for filmmakers, like director William Garrison. He has been working on the pilot for a television series called “Frozen Dead” in Nederland, not far from Golden. “Colorado has some great locations and great history. It provides an excellent backdrop for great movie ideas,” he said. “There is a wealth of creative talent in the Denver area. That alone should attract new productions — plus, we also have a lot of sunshine and four full seasons, unlike L.A.” A trip to any of the many small theaters in the metro area demonstrates there’s a wealth acting talent, and that includes all ages. Despite being so young, 10-year-old Payton Maynard, of Arvada, has already worked in several independent films and is one of the leads in “Frozen Dead.” 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.” “There is obviously going to be double the amount of opportunities to work as an actor in other places like Los Angeles or New York, but I have found a good amount of work here,” she said. “You just have to know how to look for it. I have a fantastic agent and manager that are always giving me opportunities, and I have an amazing mother who works hard to make good connections with people in the film industry.” Maynard’s mother Courtney has been keeping an eye on the Denver film scene as she helps out her daughter and is eager to see how the form will grow in the area. “I would love to see bigger directors take advantage of the amazing talent from crew to cast that all call Colorado home,” she said. “Because the Metro area is so condensed there is a large group of actors and crew that all know each other and network together. Having personally worked with a lot of them, I can say that the Denver scene has some dynamite industry professionals.”

Turn right as you enter the Center for Visual Art on Santa Fe Drive and admire the sleek pink “Ourobouros,” a huge pink snake, circling to bite its tail, by Emma Hardy and Rebecca DiDomenico. It hangs in the gallery window and in a way, speaks for the entire “Pink Progression” exhibit. It is these two artists’ version of an ancient symbol for cyclicality, recreation of self … “Pink Progression” was inspired by — and celebrates — the two recent Women’s Marches, 2017 and 2018, and is said to “address concepts of human rights, gender, sexual identity, feminism and inclusivity.” More than 50 artists explore social interactions in at least 50 different ways — in paintings, prints, sculpture, drawings, ceramics, video and combinations of techniques, large and small … A visitor becomes fascinated and thoroughly engaged by the many ways of seeing, feeling. The CVA credits local artist Anna Kaye with organizing this large show, which has visited the Boulder Public Library and Denver Public Library prior to its position at the CVA, through Aug. 19. Art lovers will almost all find something that impresses them on a visit to this varied exhibit, tied together by color and focus. (And no doubt, something that fails to impress, given the wide range of style and technique!) Many works are loaned by the gallery that represents an artist. Near “Ouroborous,” find a couple of walls, papered with a “Domesticated Rat” pattern by Rachel Delaney and Sandy Lane — and individual sheets with a single rat enjoying eating something pink. (Crayons are thoughtfully provided for those who want to color a page to carry home, as did the 20-somethings who accompanied us.) Each artwork has a message or a question or a vision. At the far end of the gallery is Trini Bumiller’s floor-to-ceiling “Monumental,” consisting of 128 panels, painted in oils. Each depicts a national monument, “created to honor and protect places of cultural, environmental and cultural importance,” and each incorporates pink. “The pink hues represent all phases of feminism,” Bumiller writes, “from baby blush and sexy hot pinks to reds of passion, rage and love.” We see

landscapes, buildings, plants, figures and much more … Katy Caron of Littleton, Arapahoe Community College Ceramic Department chair, collaborated with Marie Perrin-McGraw to craft “Untitled (Shadow Box),” and Sue Simon of Englewood exhibits a large painting, “I Am,” subtitled “DNA Sequence,” in the back right gallery. Simon says “My paintings combine abstraction with science and mathematics — scientific concepts developed from real scientific research. They describe our new understanding of the universe. Paintings are based on combining the elegance of science and the visual richness of art.” Across from Simon’s work, appropriately situated with a place to sit and look — and ponder — for an extended time, is Laleh Mehran’s electronic “Tenuous Hierarchy 1, 10, 100.” A black frame surrounds a screen with constant movement of patterns, accompanied by soft sound. It “explores power across global borders by collocating topography from one country to currency of another. These combinations of foreign structures examine the control and impact of money on sociopolitical infrastructures.” Readers may recall Mehran’s stunning installation in 2012 at the Denver Art Museum: “Men of God, Men of Nature.” She is on the University of Denver faculty. Julia Rymer Brucker of Littleton exhibits four panels: “Light at St. James.” She also works at the intersection of art and science. “Through art, I uncover the beauty of the natural world,” she wrote, “from a cell to an orbiting planet to a tree shedding leaves …” An Aug. 4 workshop is planned: “Re-thinking the Pinking,’ with exhibit artists Steven Frost and Frankie Toan, from noon to 3 p.m. The handson workshop and discussion will address the symbolism of the iconic pink hat of the Women’s March and generate new concepts for more inclusive symbolism. Who does the hat represent/exclude? How should we consider a more inclusive symbolism in activism? Participants will be encouraged to design alternative hats that reflect each participant’s own voice in contemplating feminist activism. Age 17 and up.

The theater was dark already when we arrived at Benchmark Theatre on a Sunday evening for a performance of “The Arsonists” (perhaps a bit too dark). And there was a soundtrack of crickets and other swampy critters, plus a bit of moody music to set the scene … Walls of a bare cabin let firelight flicker through the slats. Lights came up briefly for a welcome from Benchmark’s co-producer, Rachel Rogers, and darkness returned as we listened to a frustrated, profane woman, trying to move a heavy bundle into the ramshackle cabin and across the floor to a hole at the back corner where she tears at the floor and eventually dumps her burden … As light came on again, a distraught young woman, known in the script as M, appears (Florida native Rebakah Goldberg, recently welcomed in the Denver theater community). She roams the little space — talking, restless, frightened, searching? M spies a leather jacket in a cardboard box on the floor. She clasps it to her, smelling and hugging it, puts it on and obvi-

ously feels better. It’s her late father’s jacket and we learn that the family business, as it were, is arson in the Florida swamps, where vegetation flares and burns quickly. “The Arsonists,” a dark work by playwright Jacqueline Goldfinger, is in a new play’s process of becoming recognized. It was first produced by three member theaters as a National New Play Network Rolling World Pre-

miere. (Curious Theatre in Denver is an NNPN member and participates in a similar process.) Benchmark, in its second season, housed in the former Edge space, seeks strong new material and presents the regional premiere of “The Arsonists” — giving the work an additional boost along its path. With haunting music, we follow a father-daughter tale inspired by the Greek classic legend of “Electra,”

about a daughter who does not want to let her father go … Stephen Weitz of Boulder Ensemble Theatre is the discerning director. H, the desperate father, played by skilled local actor Michael Morgan, appears suddenly to tell M that she left part of him back at the death scene … he can’t totally depart until he is made whole … She of course goes to search for it … Conversation between the pair is alternately spooky, poetic and funny, as they talk about the past, and the late mother … A strong, loving relationship between father and daughter lights the interaction throughout, although the relationship is probably far from the experience of most audience members. Called “a play with music,” this haunting production will send you home with immediate memories of strong performance — and perhaps a backward glimpse of one’s own ancestry somewhere?

Castle Rock man’s curiosity leads far into English history Figure from 1600s comes to life as researcher shares fascinating story BY JESSICA GIBBS JGIBBS@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

No one tells the story quite like he does. Greg Sherwood, when he talks about the tale of Sir Richard Lane, a man who died hundreds of years before Sherwood was born, speaks fast and with a twinkle in his eye, as if he can’t wait to share every detail. Sherwood has spent most of his spare time over the past three years researching Lane, a prominent lawyer who became entangled and ultimately exiled during the English Civil War of the 1600s. Through his research, Sherwood uncovered new detail into Lane’s life and work. He located the gravesite of Lane (it’s under a church floor on the English Channel island of Jersey, unknown to local management until Sherwood inquired about Lane), and possibly identified the first known image of the embattled historical figure. “I didn’t plan on being a historian or a writer,” Sherwood said. He works full time as a project analyst, and the 54-year-old from Castle Rock has five patents under his belt for software products. “I stumbled onto this book,” he explained. Sherwood’s research endeavor began during a simple weekend stroll along South Broadway. With a coffee in hand, he walked into Gallagher Books, where he observed numerous tattered covers filling shelves and cases. Sherwood asked the shop owner to see the oldest book they had in stock. She pulled out a text from the 1600s. “It was fascinating to hold something that old. It was on its way to its 400th birthday,” Sherwood said. “So, I bought it.” For all he cared, Sherwood said, the book could have been about gardening, but he soon learned it was a record of some of the earliest English court cases, compiled from Lane’s personal notes. The book, he says, contains a case that’s the oldest precedent for Old English law. The book was a gem, he said, but it was the author who intrigued Sherwood. He began reading about Lane’s life, then started digging, and digging, and digging, for the past three years. The lawyer fascinated him, Sherwood said. Lane is known for siding with King Charles I during the English Civil War, angering Parliament in the process and eventually being stripped of title and honor. The English Civil War waged between supporters of the king and supporters of Parliament from 1642 to 1646. Lane is also known for defending the 1st Earl of Strafford, whose trial

for treason is famously depicted in the painting “The Trial of Strafford” by Thomas Alfred Woolnoth. The artwork is housed in private chambers at Parliament, to which Sherwood was given special access following his research of the artwork. Strafford’s defense lawyers were not allowed to speak during the trial, Sherwood said, and by agreeing to counsel Strafford, Lane performed an act of defiance against Parliament, which was determined to see Strafford convicted. Although his client was ultimately charged with high treason and beheaded, Lane risked his own life to defend him, Sherwood said. Neil Molyneux is the vice president of Societe Jersiaise, which researches the history, archaeology and natural history of Jersey. When Lane was exiled from England he spent the remaining years of his life in Jersey, where he died without fanfare and no memorial. “Greg has not set out to overturn any theories, but merely to put together a picture of a hitherto neglected figure; one who was important in his field of law, but who also found himself playing a part in the great drama of his age,” Molyneux said. Molyneux described Lane a “one of the most important people ever to be buried in Jersey.” Sherwood was able to meet Molyneux through two trips he’s taken to England and Jersey, where he presented to local historical societies and with staff at Parliament, including Dr. James Ford, an assistant curator of the Parliamentary Art Collection at Westminster in London where The Trial of Strafford is kept. Ford said Sherwood’s dedication to the research project was apparent. “His passion has led him to find some really interesting things,” Ford said in a Skype interview. “I think we were all really impressed with his findings.” Sherwood helped identify roughly 10 individuals depicted in “The Trial of Strafford” painting and his reports will be kept on record at Parliament, Ford said, for other researchers to draw from. The most exciting person he identified, is none other than Sir Richard Lane, who Sherwood believes is painted in a dark, shadowy corner of the painting. Lesley Whitelaw works with the Middle Temple of London, one of four English law halls that date back to Medieval times. The Middle Temple is where Lane was a member, and where his coat of arms are displayed. “It’s certainly good that he is doing what no one has previously, in assembling a comprehensive account of Lane’s life,” Whitelaw said. “Until now he has appeared as a bit part player on the stage of 17thcentury history.” SEE CURIOSITY, P28

there, aiming in all directions … For many of the 35 works in this show, Maker’s complicated process involved compacting, amalgamating the chosen items together, then slicing off a cross section which is polished and becomes an art piece, “providing the structure for new replicated cross sections.” These revealed surfaces present the viewer with a visual puzzle, which compels one to question accepted modes of art-making and confront this unique visual vocabulary. But, one would hope the viewer can just enjoy the richness, texture, color and depth of Maker’s works, without getting too involved in how they are made. Visually engaging, each work offers a depth of color and texture that leads the eye to the next equally engaging circle! To the left of the entrance are two groupings that are not to be missed: A set of works in oval frames, called “Kingdom,” rise perpendicular to the wall and really draw one to inspect closely. Hundreds of intricately made tiny objects, created with wood and resin, build a city — Who lives and works there? When? What’s the story? (Create a story? …) Across from “Kingdoms” is “Small Album Sides,” a series of older album covers — and the vinyl records they contained are shredded and packaged — nostalgic, perhaps, but … One more story for the viewer to concoct before departing! Plan to spend some time with “Full Circle: Works by Terry Maker.” Kevin Oehler, Littleton Museum curator of exhibits, not only planned an exhibit that highlights the imaginative works, but produced a handsome catalog that offers added insight into Maker’s life and work. “The circle becomes both a building block and a formalist end in itself. Viewers will begin to notice dozens of ways this geometric figure is put to task, and the wide spectrum of objects and effects it generates,” he writes.

C ol

Viewers at the opening of Terry Maker’s “Full Circle” exhibit (through Aug. 19 at the Littleton Museum) huddled in groups, fixated on Maker’s brightly colored, complex compositions, speculating … How did she do that? What am I seeing? What are those objects embedded in resin? Some are quickly recognizable, such as candy in the “Jawbreaker” series or pencils in “Pointless,” but the subtle color of shredded photographs in “Snapshot 1 and 2,” which greet the visitor upon arrival, are not so evident at first … Maker, a prominent Boulder artist, says she “explores the process of artmaking while addressing themes related to human desire and decay, death and resurrection, both mundane and sacred and mark making, both literal and figurative. “By using a diverse range of commonplace, discarded, domestic objects as well as traditional art-making materials, I cast, compose and assemble sculptured forms that are subsequently cut, drilled, scraped or otherwise manipulated to reveal the `guts’ of the matter. Gleaning detritus for its dual identity creates a startling conclusion. What is commonplace and rough-hewn mulch becomes formally graceful.” Her craftsmanship is truly astonishing as she has organized common objects of assorted sizes, textures and colors into (mostly) circular frames that lead the eye into the depths of a particular composition. “Eyerolling (Yellow),” 2017, and “Eyerolling (Red),” 2017, seem to lean toward Oriental design, I thought, but their labels say they are composed of “paper targets, collaged targets and vacuum-formed shaky eyes.” A three-dimensional “Trigger,” 2018, a sort of starburst form, contains a “high density polyurethane foam and wood parts,” it says. The wood parts, on closer inspection, once were incorporated in guns. Stunning statement

Ranch & Castle was awed as he took them through his research step by step. He’s stayed dedicated to the project, Sherwood said, because he believes Lane was an honorable man, caught on the wrong side of history and then forgotten. He hopes to keep his memory alive. “It’s a tremendous amount of fun but it has taken over my life,” Sherwood said of his research. “It will probably end up being the most significant thing I’ve ever done.”

Study finds coffee drinkers may live longer 10-year British overview raises intriguing possibilities

“Coffee makes you happy, it gives you something to look forward to in the morning. I try to have just one cup daily. Otherwise I get a little hyper.”

Go ahead and have that cup of coffee, maybe even several more. New research shows it may boost chances for a longer life, even for those who down at least eight cups daily. In a study of nearly half-a-million British adults, coffee drinkers had a slightly lower risk of death over 10 years than abstainers. The apparent longevity boost was seen with instant, ground and decaffeinated, results that echo U.S. research. It’s the first large study to suggest a benefit even in people with genetic glitches affecting how their bodies use caffeine. Overall, coffee drinkers were about 10 percent to 15 percent less likely to die than abstainers during a decade of follow-up. Differences by amount of coffee consumed and genetic variations were minimal. The results don’t prove your coffee pot is a fountain of youth nor are they a reason for abstainers to start drinking coffee, said Alice Lichtenstein, a Tufts University nutrition expert who was not involved in the research. But she said the results reinforce previous research and add additional reassurance for coffee drinkers. “It’s hard to believe that something we enjoy so much could be good for us. Or at least not be bad,” Lichtenstein said. The study was published July 2 in the journal JAMA Internal Medicine. It’s not clear exactly how drinking coffee might affect longevity. Lead author Erikka Loftfield, a researcher at the U.S. National Cancer Institute, said coffee contains more than 1,000 chemical compounds including antioxidants, which help protect cells from damage. Other studies have suggested that substances in coffee may reduce inflammation and improve how the body uses insulin, which can reduce chances for developing diabetes. Loftfield said efforts to explain the potential longevity benefit are continuing. Adam Taylor, fetching two iced coffees for friends recently in downtown Chicago, said the study results make sense. “Coffee makes you happy, it gives you something to look forward to in the morning,” said Taylor, a sound engineer from Las Vegas. “I try to have just one cup daily,” Taylor said. “Otherwise I get a little hyper.”

For the study, researchers invited 9 million British adults to take part; 498,134 women and men aged 40 to 69 agreed. The low participation rate means those involved may have been healthier than the general U.K. population, the researchers said. Participants filled out questionnaires about daily coffee consumption, exercise and other habits, and received physical exams including blood tests. Most were coffee drinkers; 154,000 or almost one-third drank two to three cups daily and 10,000 drank at least eight cups daily. During the next decade, 14,225 participants died, mostly of cancer or heart disease. Caffeine can cause short-term increases in blood pressure, and some smaller studies have suggested that it might be linked with high blood pressure, especially in people with a genetic variation that causes them to metabolize caffeine slowly. But coffee drinkers in the U.K. study didn’t have higher risks than nondrinkers of dying from heart disease and other blood pressurerelated causes. And when all causes of death were combined, even slow caffeine metabolizers had a longevity boost. As in previous studies, coffee drinkers were more likely than abstainers to drink alcohol and smoke, but the researchers took those factors into account, and coffee drinking seemed to cancel them out. The research didn’t include whether participants drank coffee black or with cream and sugar. But Lichtenstein said loading coffee with extra fat and calories isn’t healthy.

SPORTS

Area woman set to play against pros

T

“In golf, you get to hit the ball 100 times around the golf course and you can be either a hero or goat. Volleyball has that same addiction component because of the gratification.” There are some unwritten rules involved the culture at The Island. For instance, a guy never blocks a lady. “There is a volleyball etiquette you have to know here because some people don’t follow it and they don’t last long,” said Adam Wiedel, of Castle Rock. “People start getting on their cases.” Wiedel lists several reasons people keep playing beach volleyball. “Some people like the competitiveness and some like the sport, some people like the accomplishment, some like to have the beer and some like to have good friends,” he said. “It is whatever drives them to have fun that keeps them coming back.” Gina Engbarth of Centennial plays 20 hours a week. “It is not surprising anymore to play beach volleyball in Colorado,” she said. “Tom (Davenport) has done so much for beach volleyball in Denver. “You can play year round. I don’t know how much more it can grow because there are so many people involved in the sport but, yeah, I think it will continue to grow here in Colorado and across the U.S.”

here will be 120 golfers in the field for the first-ever U.S. Women’s Senior Open that starts July 12 but there is more to this story. Centennial resident Janet Moore is probably tired of hearing the above play on words, but the 53-year-old is a Colorado Golf Hall of Famer who will enter her 26th U.S. Golf Association tournament. OVERTIME “They (USGA tournaments) were all a big thrill,” said Moore. “It’s always my goal to qualify for them. My goal someday is to do well in one of them. The Jim Benton furthest I’ve gone is the quarterfinals in a Mid-Amateur. Right now this tournament would be the one that sticks out the most. This is against pros and really, really good players. It will be fun. I’m just going to go out and have fun and try to play my best.” The tournament will be at the Chicago Golf Club, one of the five founding clubs of the USGA and the oldest course in the U.S. in continuous use at the same location. The course will be 6,082 yards and play to par 73. Moore, who attended Wheat Ridge High School, shot a 74 on June 12 at Common Ground Golf Course in Aurora to qualify for the inaugural Senior Women’s Open. She won a Colorado-record four consecutive CGA Women’s Stroke Play titles and five overall. Moore was inducted into the Colorado Golf Hall of Fame in 2001 when she was only 36 years old. Moore was one of four golfers to qualify from the June 12 tournament. Valley Country Club teaching professional Sherry Andonian-Smith and part-time Gunnison resident Marilyn Hardy also qualified along with Patricia Beliard from Katy, Texas. “I’m very excited they are having the first U.S. Senior Women’s Open,” she said. “A lot of people say it is long overdue and as an amateur for me it is a bonus. “Once I heard they were having it, I set my sights on qualifying for it. There is something very special about a USGA event. As an amateur it allows you to play at a high level. And you get to play with great players from other states and across the country.”

However, the Parker resident is playing volleyball again in the sand in landlocked Colorado after finding The Island, a beach volleyball facility in southeast Denver. “There’s no beaches here,” said Leuenberger. “I’m from Hermosa Beach where beach volleyball is major league. I used to play at the beach all the time. “When I moved here 3 1/2 years ago, I gave up the sport and then I found this place. It’s is a little bit different than at the beach but it makes me feel good that I’m back into it.” Beach volleyball is booming around the Denver area, with sand courts at bars, clubs and parks. The Island, 2233 S.Geneva St., has six indoor sand courts, two outside and plans are to add six more outdoor courts. Tom Davenport is the owner and he

also owns The Oasis at 2400 W. Midway Blvd. in Broomfield. The Oasis has seven indoor and three outdoor beach volleyball courts. There are leagues at both locations with six-on-six competition, fouron-four and the popular two-on-two doubles that is seen on television and at the Olympics. There is no ocean, sea or bay around the sand courts in Colorado and players don’t have to worry about elements like the wind off the shore. “What is different than an actual beach is the sand is fluffier and deeper,” said Leuenberger. “The sand is more shallow here and that’s the only difference.” Sand in Colorado is sometimes called “jumpers sand” because the sand on the genuine beaches is deeper, which makes in harder to jump. The popularity of beach volleyball is at least partially because of the inclusivity of the sport. “I found is it is a game that lends itself to coed participation,” said Davenport. “You can play with men and women on a court. It’s a relatively level playing field.” And all players are involved. “It has a high degree of immediate gratification,” Davenport said. “Every time the ball comes over the net, especially in doubles beach volleyball, you get to touch it, you get to pass it, set it or hit it. Every point, every play, you are involved.

BEACH FROM PAGE 32

Gina Engbarth of Centennial plays 20 hours a week. “It is not surprising anymore to play beach volleyball in Colorado,” she said. “Tom (Davenport) has done so much for beach volleyball in Denver. “You can play year round. I don’t know how much more it can grow because there are so many people involved in the sport but, yeah, I think it will continue to grow here in Colorado and across the U.S.” Kris Bredehoft of Englewood is a player and coach.

“The sport is definitely big here,” she said. “Girls are solely going for beach scholarships now, where they used to go for hard court. There are a lot of the same principles but it is a hard transition from hard court to beach. “In hard court, players specialize in a position. In beach, you play every position. It makes you more versatile.” Women’s beach volleyball is recognized as an emerging sport by the NCAA with 93 schools, including 54 in Division I, having varsity teams. Colorado Mesa, a Division II school in Grand Junction, is the only college in Colorado to have a team but several other schools are considering adding the sport.

daughter Sarah was playing. It is a 10-minute drive from the Chicago Golf Club and Moore got the chance to play the course once.

Moore, whose husband and Arapahoe High School graduate Kent is a Colorado Golf Hall of Famer who has won over 15 Colorado Golf Association titles, never considered turning professional. “For a while there I was doing really well on the state level but unless you are dominating of the state level and doing real well nationally it doesn’t make much sense to turn pro,” she explained. “I could do OK there for a while on the state level but I’ve never won a national tournament. That’s the reality of it. You have to be dominating at both levels to be able to compete.” An ailing neck has bothered Moore and it wasn’t until June 28 that she committed to compete in the Women’s Senior Open. She started preparing for the tournament July 3. “I’ve been doing everything to take care of it,” Moore revealed. “I’ve gone to a chiropractor, a trainer, message, everything, you name it, I’ve done it. It is now getting better. I used to practice five hours a day. I practice two hours a day and that’s enough for me. I practice a little smarter these days.” Moore coached golf at Wheaton College for a few years when her

No. 8 national ranking Mountain Vista’s Class 5A state championship baseball team was ranked eighth nationally in the MaxPreps rankings for the 2018 season. According to MaxPreps and CHSAANow.com, it was the highest a Colorado team has been in the computer rankings since Rocky Mountain was No. 7 following the 2010 season. Mountain Vista was eighth in both the writers and computer rankings. The Golden Eagles, third in West Region rankings, ended the season with a 26-1 record with its only loss coming in the first game of the 5A double elimination state tournament. Class 4A state champion Valor Christian was ranked 42nd nationally by MaxPreps. Besides Rocky Mountain in 2010, other top national rankings over the years by Colorado schools include Cherry Creek No. 12 in 2012, Rocky Mountain No. 11 in 2014 and Eaton No. 17 in 2015.
