CCM joins effort to document hate and bias incidents STAFF REPORT

A woman and her 5-year-old daughter walking on a sidewalk in a Highlands Ranch park recently came across a chalk-scrawled image of a swastika and words spelling “Kill the Jews.” In Lakewood, following the recent terrorist attacks in Manchester and London, police increased patrols around a local mosque after it received a series of threatening calls. The two incidents are among many nationwide as reports of bias, dis-

crimination and hate crimes surface. The FBI and civil rights organizations are tracking many higher-profile incidents. “But no government agency documents lower-level incidents of harassment and intimidation, such as online or real-life bullying,” says ProPublica, an independent, nonprofit newsroom dedicated to investigative reporting. “Documenting and understanding all of these incidents — from hate-inspired murders to anti-Semitic graffiti to racist online trolling — requires new, more creative approaches.”

With that in mind, ProPublica’s Documenting Hate project is working to create a national database of all incidents that can be used by journalists, researchers and civil rights organizations. Colorado Community Media has joined the more than 70 media organizations, academic institutions and civil rights organizations partnering with ProPublica to collect, verify and analyze reports by victims across the country. Your help is invaluable: We are asking residents in our communities to report any hate, bias or discrimina-

mother of future president From CA to CO My family moved here in March from California. We live near Mainstreet in downtown. My husband works in Centennial and has family in the area, so this is pretty close. We have two daughters, Sofia, 7, and Isabel, 5. I feel like here there’s a lot more community, I feel like there’s always something here we can be a part of, which is nice. Where we lived in California, it just seemed more singular. It was a resort town in the mountains, so it was small but it was always really crowded. The only thing I really miss about California is the beach, and Parker can’t provide the beach. First take on new digs So far my favorite thing about Parker is all of the community events and all of the activities for the kids. It’s not as hot here as it is in California, so we really en-

joy being outside as much as possible. There’s a lot of hiking and bike trails in the area we’re looking forward to checking out. Parenting 101 I think it’s important to keep the kids busy, but also just to get them out, get them to meet more people and get them to socialize and make friends. I think it’s a lot easier to learn and practice how to make friends when they’re young so it will be easier for them to do it when they’re older. The hardest thing about raising two girls is raising two girls. They’re the best of friends and they hate each other at the same time. Passing down Pokemon I have a Pikachu tattoo because I just loved Pokemon when I was a kid. Both of the girls love Pokemon,

they have tons of cards and everything, so it’s fun to do it with them. I also share a love of reading with them. Breaking the glass ceiling, someday I think equality, for everyone, is a major problem. One of my daughters asked me the other day if there had been any female presidents. I said ‘no,’ and then she asked if women were even allowed to be president. It made me sad that she would even have to question whether women were allowed to be president or not, but she decided she’s going to be the president when she grows up. So we’ll fix that problem.

District cleared of wrongdoing in 2013 election lawsuit STAFF REPORT

The Douglas County School District was cleared of wrongdoing in a lawsuit dating to 2013 following a Colorado Supreme Court ruling July 3. The court reviewed a court of appeals’ conclusion that the school district did not make a prohibited contribution in a school board election campaign. The court ruled that under Colorado’s Fair Campaign Practices Act, the definition of “contribution” requires that something of value be given to a candidate, directly or indirectly for the purpose of promoting the candidate’s nomination, retention, recall or election. In 2013, the school district used public funds to commission a paper, titled the Hess Report, supportive of the district’s reforms. The school district paid half of the $30,000 contracted fee for the report. The Douglas County Educational Foundation — the district’s nonprofit fundraising arm — paid the rest. The Hess Report referenced an upcoming school board election and briefly profiled existing school board members, all of who supported the reform agenda, according to court documents. The district included a link to the report in an email distributed to 85,000 Douglas County residents several weeks before the 2013 school board

election. The lawsuit was brought by Julie Keim, a former Douglas County school board candidate who said the report was used to aid her opponents who supported the reforms. The four candidates in support of the district’s reforms, Doug Benevento, Meghann Silverthorn, Judi Reynolds and James Geddes, won the election. “Because the school district did not give something, directly or indirectly, to any candidate when it publicly disseminated an email containing a link to the report, the supreme court concludes the school district did not make a prohibited `contribution’ under these Colorado campaign finance provisions,” the court said in its opinion. “The supreme court therefore affirms the judgment of the court of appeals.” The Colorado Court of Appeals reversed a lower court’s decision and found the district did not violate the state’s Fair Campaign Practices Act. The three-judge Court of Appeals panel was split in its ruling, with one judge voting to uphold the administrative law judge’s decision. “We are pleased that the Colorado Supreme Court unanimously upheld the lower court’s ruling, finding that the Douglas County School District did not violate any campaign finance laws,” DCSD legal counsel William Trachman said in an emailed statement. “We are happy this matter is now resolved.”

As unemployment drops, businesses labor to find workers Record-low jobless rate making it tough for some companies to fill openings

HOW THE COUNTIES COMPARE Below is a comparison of unemployment rates of six counties in the Denver metro area from May 2016 to May 2017. Rates are not seasonally adjusted.

BY ALEX DEWIND ADEWIND@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Husband and wife Jim and Kate Curtis opened Village Roaster, a coffee store in Lakewood, 23 years ago. Some employees have been with them for five to 10 years, others are seasonal high school and college students. But although they describe their staff as stable, they have noticed a change in the past year. “We don’t have as many applicants for positions,” Kate Curtis said. “There is not a lineup of people to choose from.” The struggle to find employees is the result of a historically low state unemployment rate of 2.3 percent, the lowest in the nation, the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment reports. That rate, which has remained the same for April and May, compares to a state unemployment rate of 8.8 percent in May 2010 and of 3.9 percent in May 2015, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. The national unemployment rate for May was 4.3 percent, compared to 4.7 percent a year earlier. Openings are highest in nonfarm payroll jobs, which include goods, construction and manufacturing positions. Business leaders in the Denver metro area agree the low unemployment rate signals a strong economy of employed people who have the means to spend money. “Job security means the economic engine in sales is doing well,” said Pamela Kelly, general manager of Park Meadows shopping center in Lone Tree, which has 200 retail stores and 16 restaurants. But conversely, the selection pool for employers has diminished in size and quality. Chamber of commerce leaders in the Denver metro area agree that their members — employers of small to large businesses — are finding it difficult to fill positions. “It used to be that the typical ad you would see for employment was ‘help wanted: rock stars.’ Nowadays it’s more like ‘help wanted: warm

offers medical benefits, incentives to stay healthy, including a health and exercise facility on campus, and clubs where people of like-minded interests can connect, said Reese Reynolds, humans resources director of Lockheed Martin’s Space Systems Division. “Healthy, happy and fulfilled employees get engaged in their work and end up doing great work,” Reynolds said. “We have outlets for their interests that are beyond their careers.”

Shifting attitudes A major reason many employers are struggling to fill positions is the mindset of the millennial worker. Millennials —a term used to describe the population born after 1980 — are taking the traditional four-year university route over trade professions, such as electricians, plumbers and mechanics. According to a 2017 study by Pew Research Center, 40 percent of millennial workers ages 25 to 29 had at least a bachelor’s degree in 2016, compared to 32 percent of Generation X workers — who are in their mid-30s to early 50s — and smaller shares of the baby boomer generation. In 2015, to address the shortage of craftsmen and women in the trade industry, Colorado lawmakers created the Skilled Worker Outreach, Recruitment, Key Training Act, which included a three-year, $10 million grant for training programs, including pre-apprenticeships and peer-to-peer outreach through local colleges and associations. The second cycle of the act will be rolled out this October. Still, business leaders say the attitude toward blue-collar jobs must shift. “We created an image that you

weren’t as good if you were doing hard labor,” Tisdale said. “We need electricians, plumbers, because we have all these fancy gadgets and nobody to fix them.” Pam Bales, president of the West Chamber of Commerce, which includes 750 small- to medium-sized businesses in Jefferson County, has a similar outlook. She applauds the Jefferson County Business Education Alliance, formed five years ago to prepare high school students for the workforce, and Warren Tech, a career and technical high school in Lakewood, for fostering paths for young adults that don’t include a four-year university. “There are all kinds of fits for young millennials who don’t want to go a traditional route,” Bales said. “They can get into a profession that they love.” Business leaders also say millenials are as concerned with the lifestyle of a position — access to transportation, hours and benefits — as the pay. Companies need to recognize and address that mentality, said Tisdale. Some companies have devised work environments and schedules that appeal to millennials and their older counterparts. Lockheed Martin, an aerospace and defense company in Littleton, offers a 9/80 work schedule, in which employees work nine hours a day and get every other Friday off. It also

Creative ways to keep employees Restaurant and retail employers are finding unique ways to attract and retain entry-level employees in a competitive market. Raising Cane’s, a popular Louisiana-based restaurant chain that opened this month in Highlands Ranch, closes for Thanksgiving, Christmas and the evening of Super Bowl Sunday. On Memorial Day, management hosts a picnic for all employees and their families. Each manager has a monthly budget called Cane’s Love to creatively reward the crew. “Our culture is very strong,” said Amanda Klein, a Raising Cane’s recruiter. Even so, the restaurant chain encountered challenges in finding employees for its newest Colorado location. A job posting in Highlands Ranch had far fewer applicants than a similar position posted in St. Louis, according to Klein. Kate and Jim Curtis get to know their employees on a personal level. They ask about families and pets and celebrate occasions with their team outside of work. Commitment to their employees has allowed for slow and steady growth of their Lakewood business: Village Roasters, at 9255 W. Alameda Ave., now has a café in St. Anthony Hospital in Lakewood and a kiosk in the Lakewood Cultural Center. “The Golden Rule — treat people the way you want to be treated — is our philosophy,” Kate Curtis said. “We definitely have rules and procedures, but we have flexibility.” While there may not be one solution to the record-low unemployment rate’s adverse affects, business leaders hope to see more young adults apply for nontraditional yet highly needed positions in the workforce. “It’s a great problem to have,” Bales said, “but it’s still a problem.”

group,” he said. Parker Cultural Director Elaine Mariner said a goal in the new season was to address “gaps” of some of the genres and performances overlooked in previous seasons. One of those gaps, she said, was chamber music. To fill it, Albrechtson and company added a chamber music series featuring musicians from the University of Denver, to be performed in the Schoolhouse theater at 19650 Mainstreet. “It’s a way to capitalize on the unique benefits the Schoolhouse offers. It’s a smaller, more acoustically driven space,” Mariner said. Another experiment Mariner and the staff are trying is the first concert of the season, an outdoor, ticketed performance by ‘90s alternative rockers Smash Mouth at Discovery Park on Aug. 19. Comedy is also more prominent in the schedule for 2017-18 schedule, with veteran standups Paul Reiser and Billy Gardell of “Mike and Molly” making appearances at PACE, in addition to the Comedy and Cocktails series, featuring local comedians, at the Schoolhouse. Albrechtson said another high-profile act is still being lined up for the season. “The one thing we’ve heard over and over again is comedy, comedy, comedy,” Albrechtson added. Mariner said she’s proud of being

‘You’re going to grow in a lot of ways’ Douglas County volunteers tout feeling of satisfaction gained by giving back BY TOM SKELLEY TSKELLEY@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Many people associate volunteering with serving soup to the hungry in a church basement or picking up trash next to an interstate, but for Douglas County residents who want a more personal touch to their service, reasons and opportunities to give back abound. Their reasons for volunteering are as unique as the places and ways that they serve. Here are a few of their stories. For information on other opportunities in Douglas County, visit volunteerconnectdc.org.

Sunita Safi, left, reviews her science homework with Kathy Denson in a study room at the Douglas County Libraries Parker branch. Denson has tutored four students since beginning her volunteer service with the Douglas County Libraries Adult Literacy Program in 2015. TOM SKELLEY

Rasika Mukkamala, Highlands Ranch Rasika Mukkamala volunteers at the James H. Larue library in her hometown of Highlands Ranch, as well as working information booths at community and holiday events. She said she enjoyed and attended those celebrations as a child, and this is her way of making sure children have the same access to meaningful community experiences she had. “I went to the library and I went to all of these events when I was a kid, now it’s my turn to help those kids,” she said. “I like being part of something bigger than myself. I don’t want to be home watching TV when I could be helping somebody.”

Kathy Denson, Parker Kathy Denson started volunteering in college in Indiana, coaching young girls in basketball. She served on various boards and committees since, but was always “pigeonholed” into doing the books, a role she found to be too similar to her day job as a CPA . In January 2015, Denson called the Douglas County Libraries Adult Literacy Department, and began working with adults trying to complete their GED. “What’s rewarding about this is seeing their successes,” she said. “That opens all the other doors they’ve been waiting to go through.” Denson is currently tutoring Sumita Safi, a 21-year-old refugee living in Parker and studying hard to pass the third of four tests to obtain her high school equivalency. “She’s not like a teacher or a tutor, she’s more like a friend,” Safi said. While Denson appreciated the compliment, she said the benefits of volunteering go both ways. “You might think you’re volunteering to help someone else, but you’re really helping yourself,” she said. “You’re going to grow in a lot of ways.”

Brigitte Parker, Castle Pines For Brigitte Parker of Castle Pines, serving at the Hidden Mesa Research Orchard in Franktown is a welcome escape from 25 years in the tech industry. She began by volunteering as a trail worker for Douglas County’s Department of Open Space, but a rainstorm that closed the trail at Hidden Mesa months ago changed her plans. “I fell in love with the chickens,” Parker said, referring to the chickens roaming the orchard to control the grasshopper population. “I saw these chickens roaming around and came over to ask what they were doing. That did it for me. The trails haven’t seen me since.” Parker said she loves the opportunity to serve the community while taking in nature, and that the fresh produce grown there goes to the Parker Task Force to feed needy families. She also loves her co-volunteers. “It’s outside and the people are the best,” she said. “Basically, this isn’t work, it’s play.”

The orchard experiments with plant species that might do well in harsh climates like Colorado’s and donates its surplus crops to the Parker Task Force food bank. TOM SKELLEY

Mukkamala says she enjoyed community events and services as a child and volunteering allows her to give that opportunity to other children. COURTESY PHOTO

Susie Appleby, Highlands Ranch Susie Appleby has always had a love of history, and the Highlands Ranch Mansion has always been a special place for her. She volunteered there for 20 years before becoming the volunteer coordinator in March 2016. “I’m having time of my life, as I always knew I would,” she said. Appleby also serves on the Douglas County Historic Preservation Board and with the Colorado Historical Society, but her favorite role is overseeing the mansion and its 60 volunteers, even if

it isn’t what most people assume volunteering entails. “For me, it was all about historical preservation,” Appleby said. “Even though it’s not in one of those traditional roles, you’re still giving back to the community.” Serving with other volunteers is a unique experience in and of itself, she said, because they share a common interest in the service they are providing. “It’s rewarding to work here with people who are here not because they’re getting paid, but because they love it,” she said.

PLANNING FROM PAGE 4

Seven members will have a vote with three alternates. Currently five commission members vote with three alternates, numbers established by a June 2010 council vote. “The driver was really that we had a substantial number of applicants for two open seats,” Community Development Director John Fussa said. “We had incumbents reapplying and over a dozen new applicants.” The last request for applications

was in April, and future calls will be issued as seats open. Planning Commission members serve threeyear terms with no term limits and are appointed by the town council. Alternates serve one-year terms. With Parker’s growth a constant topic of conversation and controversy, Fussa said administrators expanding the commission will pave the way for more cooperation. “There’s been lots of interest in growth and development,” Fussa said. “We thought it would be better to open things up .… Staff and the town council want to give the public as much opportunity to participate as possible.”

VOICES Let’s consider this a role call, for example

I

Your idea of a role model is probably not the same as mine. I have been reading about a new film that “empowers” women and offers young women and girls someone to look up to. Is it about Helen Keller? Not exactly. Maya Angelou? Not quite. It’s about a woman who wears Lynda Carter’s old clothes, which amounted to a push-up, a sword, and not much else. Trying to ID a man or a woman as a role model would be a good way to get myself in trouble. Let me throw out some names: Kylie and Kendall, Anderson Cooper, Hans Christian Andersen, Wayne LaPierre, Ted Nugent,

am auditioning role models next week. Please bring your resume. Please don’t. I need a role model like I need a carton of mewing kittens. A role model is generally thought of as someone whose behavior is favorable, and who is a good example for others, especially, but not always, younger people. These often include athletes, entertainers, super heroes, politicians and priests. However, I never wanted to be like Mike, Missy, Captain America or Miss America. There’s not much of a chance of it, but I would never want to be anyone’s role model. If I were elected, I would not serve.

Warren Buffett, Mark Zuckerman, J.K. Rowling, George Washington, George Washington Carver, Aimee Semple McPherson, Madalyn Murray O’Hair, Phyllis Schlafly, Fred Phelps, Fred Rogers. Bob Dylan. I am not being disingenuous about any of those names. There are people who look up to each of them. Can we agree 100 percent about anyone? Abraham Lincoln? Ask them in parts of the South. Martin Luther King Jr.? Ask them in parts of Arizona. Elvis didn’t want to be a role model, but Ed SEE SMITH, P13

Just a slight change in wording can offer way to live with piece of peace

LETTER TO THE EDITOR We lost a special person I’m writing to remember Carla Turner to the community. I met Carla in 2005, when she applied for the-then spanking-new Douglas County Youth Initiative. Carla’s experience with a host of social work, social justice and criminal justice work was impressive. Even more impressive

was her extraordinary passion and commitment to the work. Carla was a big-system thinker. She got how things connected. She had penetrating insights. And she communicated all of that with infectious enthusiasm and optimism. SEE LETTER, P13

o the other day I was reminded of something I had heard a few times before and always enjoyed as a new way to think about things. And WINNING when I heard it WORDS this time it gave me a little cause for pause because it really was just so relevant to where we are now as a culture and society. I bring this up now because a Michael Norton couple of weeks ago I had written an article about happiness and joy. The column received so much raw, yet positive feedback from our community as many of you thought through the message of not just seeking happiness, but pursuing true joy or trying to find that joy again. And many lamented on the feeling that somehow the feeling of joy, even simple happiness had become lost somewhere along the way. We are not an isolated community when it comes to this feeling. All you have to do is speak to a friend, family member, or co-worker who lives in a different part of the country or maybe even in a different part of the world and you

will get the sense that too many people are living on the edge. Frustration, sadness, and even anger have substituted a place in people’s lives, homes, and hearts where happiness once used to dwell. That is why when I was reminded of this philosophy; it rang so true in our current times. What I was reminded of was this: “Anger is only one letter away from danger.” Let that sink in for a minute because even though I had heard it before also, it seemed to be more important this week for me than maybe it had in the past. One letter, the letter “D,” has the potential to turn an unhealthy emotion into a scary situation or event. Perhaps we can think of other words where one letter can make a difference as well. As an example, when we are tired, sad, and frustrated and we feel like we want to cry, maybe change out the “C” in cry and replace it with a “T” for try. Try one more time, try one more path, try one more idea, or try to be more loving and kind, even in the face of the difficulties and challenges certain people or life can throw our way. It is so very easy to become cynical and hard-hearted. I mean we can shut out the world and those closest to us, can’t we? We

Sullivan tried to make him into one. It was awkward and embarrassing. “I wanted to say to Elvis Presley and the country that this is a real decent, fine boy, and wherever you go, Elvis, we want to say we’ve never had a pleasanter experience on our show with a big name than we’ve had with you.” (Ed also asked Connie Francis, “Tell me, Connie, is your mother still dead?”) I don’t think anyone would get everyone’s vote. Muhammad Ali? Gandhi? Barry Bonds? Bonds said, “I think everyone needs to be a role model, period.” I believe we need bad role models too, if we need role models at all. This isn’t Pleasantville.

can become irritable at home and at work and make ourselves and everyone else around us miserable. sAnd sooner or later that hard-hearted and hard-headed thinking will end up in resentment and maybe even anger, just one letter removed from danger. And that danger can include maybe losing those we love the most. Instead, let’s change one more word by adding one more letter and removing another. I am sure you have heard someone say it in the heat of an argument, or on a TV show or in a movie at some point, “You want a piece of me?” They say it with such hostility and bravado, inviting the other person to a fight. Well, if we happen

Carla did great work with the Youth Initiative, then went on to great work with other causes. What some may not know was her interest in creative writing. I still have one draft of her NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) event. It was a story about a family of cannibals. Carla was positively gleeful when she talked about it. Her dedication: “The following is a retelling of an old Scottish legend. It was written with complete disregard

us a good lesson. If I were pressed on this, I would say that all I needed was Harry and Shirley. The country is full of Harrys and Shirleys. Unassuming parents, who love and protect their children, feed them, and send them to school. My Harry and my Shirley provided me with a Dickensian gamut of behavioral traits, dispositions, and temperaments that continue to serve as good examples of good examples and good examples of bad examples. My father was objective, rational, honest, industrious, and humorous. My mother did a good job of preparing me for unbalanced people. If it had only been one or the other, or if they had both been the same, I am certain I wouldn’t be writing a column like this — like this.

to find ourselves in such a situation, rather than asking the person if they want a piece of us, what if we asked them to find peace with us instead? So how about you? Could you benefit from trying something new instead of crying about what’s happening around you? Can you see yourself as a peacemaker instead of taking a piece out of someone else? Either way I would love to hear all about it at gotonorton@gmail.com, and when we decide to live with a piece of the peace that this world does have to offer us, and avoid the anger and danger, it really will be a better than good week.

It’s a tragedy when we lose any loved one. Carla recently passed away, after a long battle with cancer. But throughout that ordeal, she maintained her fierce, Viking insistence that we can, and should, treat one another better. What’s more, she lived it. Her loss diminishes Douglas County.

Colorado Renaissance Festival approaches final weekends Festival transports people to village inspired by history and magic BY JESSICA GIBBS JGIBBS@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

The Colorado Renaissance Festival, which runs for eight weekends at its Larkspur location, has three remaining weekends in this year’s schedule before the village modeled after 16th century England closes its gates. The festival is open from 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays, rain or shine,

and transports eventgoers to a town inspired by history and fantasy. John Bryan, who plays King Henry at the festival, and Beth Telford, who plays Queen Anne, said new and old acts keep visitors entertained as they wander through the village. “It’s just a magical place to be,” Bryan said. “We draw people back in time...” The event features variety acts on stages throughout the grounds, vendors, artisans, food and drink. Popular shows include live jousting and the hypnotist. Many who attend arrive in costume. The festival is held at 650 W. Perry Park Ave. For more information, visit coloradorenaissance.com.

But “people will be rolling in the aisles.” Children’s fare, performances by the Parker Symphony Orchestra and other time-tested shows like “The Nutcracker” will return to draw families, children and loyal patrons, and Albrechtson said “If you take a look at the calendar and you don’t seeing something you want, just keep going down,” he said. “There’s going to be something in there that you like.”

Cottage food producers spread jam and joy as they sell their wares

COTTAGE FOODS: THE BASICS Allowed foods • Jams, jellies, preserves, honey • Spice blends, tea, dehydrated produce, flour • Bread, cookies, candies, tortillas • Pickled fruits and veggies with a verified pH below 4.6 (free testing is available through the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment) • Up to 250 dozen whole eggs per month, only if washed and sanitized (the only cottage food that requires refrigeration)

oanne Littau seems to float as she works, blending strawberries and rhubarb with pectin and lemon juice with the deftness and grace of an orchestra conductor. Ceramic pigs peer down at pots of jam bubbling like cauldrons on the stove of her little kitchen. On the wall hang the former New Yorker’s blue ribbons, earned at county fairs for delicacies like ginger pear butter, peach butter with rum and cranberry chutney. “Oh, it’s a delightful hobby,” Joanne said. “I’m proud of what I do, and people just love my jams.” Littau, of Denver, is one of hundreds, maybe thousands, of Coloradans who sell homemade goodies under the auspices of the Cottage Foods Act, a set of guidelines designed to grease the wheels for home cooks to sell their wares at farmers markets, community events or even out of their driveways. The short version of the regulations is fairly simple: take a food safety class — in person or online — keep a clean kitchen, make sure your items are properly labeled and get cooking. Many potentially nonhazardous foods are allowed, such as jams, jellies, honey, baked goods like bread and cookies, dried items like SEE HOMEMADE, P17

Not allowed foods • Meat, fish, or dairy products • Lemon curd, pesto, salsa, dressings, condiments • Beverages • Canned vegetables with a pH higher than 4.6 All items must feature labeling containing • Identification of the food • The producer’s name and address where the food was prepared • Current phone number or email address • Date the food was produced • Complete list of ingredients • The following disclaimer: “This product was produced in a home kitchen that is not subject to state licensure or inspection and that may also process common food allergens such as tree nuts, peanuts, eggs, soy, wheat, milk, fish and crustacean shellfish. This product is not intended for resale.”

Training • Face-to-face training is available through Colorado State University’s County Extension offices. Classes generally cost $40 and last three to four hours. • Colorado’s ServeSafe Manager Certification is intended for commercial establishments, but satisfies the cottage food requirements. Classes cost $120 and up. • Online training is available through CSU, StateFoodSafety.com, and ServeSafe. Selling • Cottage foods must be sold directly to consumers, and not for resale in a store or restaurant. • Sellers are subject to income taxes, and a business license is required in some instances. • Foods can only be sold within Colorado. • In-state online sales are now allowed. • At the point of sale, prominently display a placard reading: “This product was produced in a home kitchen that is not subject to state licensure or inspection. This product is not intended for resale.”

spice blends and teas, and even fresh eggs. Pickles are allowed if their pH is below 4.6. Nothing with meat is allowed, nor is anything that requires refrigeration, except eggs. Dairy products are off the menu, as are salsas and sauces. Producers can only sell directly to consumers, and you’re only allowed to earn $10,000 per year per variety of food item — meaning you can make 10 grand off chocolate chip cookies and another 10 grand off chocolate chip cookies with walnuts. Littau’s business keeps her hopping — she estimates she makes two batches of jellies, jams and preserves a day, most days of the month. She mainly sells her products, under the brand name The Jelly Jar LLC, at the Four Seasons Farmers & Artisans Market in Wheat Ridge, but she also makes the rounds of local festivals. She shared a booth at the Fourth of July parade and craft fair in Byers, and she’ll be at the Lafayette Peach Festival in August. This year she’ll enter the competition at the Arapahoe County Fair for the first time, and she’ll be back to defend last year’s first place ribbons in the Boulder County Fair. “I’ll never get rich off of cottage foods,” said the diminutive woman with smiling eyes and an easy, musical laugh. “But it occupies my time and makes me feel productive and involved with people. When I came here in the ‘90s, people kind of looked at me funny. I’m a New York girl — we’re bold and brassy. People out here are a little more toned down. At the market I can really cut loose and be myself.” Trying to fill a niche Being themselves is big for cottage food producers. “I wouldn’t trade this for anything,” said Diego Hernandez, the proprietor of Ant D’s Fine Foods, as he presided over tables loaded with jams, jellies and crates of fresh fruits and veggies under a canopy outside O’Toole’s Garden Center in Littleton. “It’s a hard life, but I get to show what I can do from my heart. I don’t have to do what my boss says, because I don’t have one.” Hernandez’s offerings include strawberry cracked black pepper jam and habanero peach jam, but the big seller

is farm-fresh eggs. He has regulars who show up every Tuesday to snag a dozen or two or three. “The only way you’d get ‘em fresher is if they were laid in your backyard,” he said. Ant D’s was started “with a raspberry bush and my last unemployment check,” said Hernandez, a lifelong chef and a Denver resident. Across the way on the hot asphalt, Dorreen Strnad sports a sheepish grin as she’s cajoled into talking up her sugary baked goods. “My scones are selling like crazy mad today,” Strnad, of Littleton, said. “Seems like nobody sells a good scone anymore, so I try to fill that niche.” She does it well. Her scones are fluffy and moist, almost mouth-puckering with tart blueberries. She does loads more than scones, too: big hearty loaves of sandwich bread, flawlessly frosted cookies, and yes, jams and jellies. “For me, cottage foods means freedom,” Strnad said. “I went to culinary school, then I did the whole punch-

the-clock thing. I got tired of being a link in a chain and making money for somebody else. This is my nine-to-five now.” Following the rules Getting set up in cottage foods isn’t difficult, said Sheila Gains, a Colorado State University extension agent who teaches a cottage food safety training class that satisfies the law’s education requirement. Most important is understanding the ways in which a home kitchen is different from a commercial kitchen. “In a commercial kitchen, everyone there is prepped to make food,” Gains said. “In a commercial kitchen, nobody’s coming home from work and wanting to taste-test, no dogs are roaming around, no cats are jumping on counters. When somebody’s sick, they stay home. You’ve got to get everyone in your home on board that when you’re cooking, they’re either helping you keep everything clean or staying out of your way.”

Fully submerge jars in rapidly boiling water for 20 minutes Remove jars from pot, place on towel, cover with another towel Allow to cool, listening for popping of jar lids Store in cool dark place until ready to use; refrigerate after opening

There are no hard numbers on cottage food producers — there’s no mandatory or voluntary registry. There may be thousands since the law took effect in 2012, Gains said. Before that, to legally sell homemade goods, you would have needed a commercial food license and kitchen. “It’s like going from zero miles per hour to a hundred to become a food producer, so this lets people in at 10 or 15 miles per hour,” Gains said. “They can develop their product through trial and error. They can see if producing food is something they want to do day in and day out. If they become super successful, they have a fighting chance of becoming a commercial producer.” To date, there have been no known outbreaks of foodborne illness from cottage food, said Therese Pilonetti with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, which oversees administration of cottage foods. “This law is about breaking down barriers,” Pilonetti said. “And it sure seems to be working.”

Mansion will host painters working in great outdoors ‘En plein air’ event to be held at venue in Highlands Ranch BY SONYA ELLINGBOE SELLINGBOE@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

On July 22, 10 invited artists will spread across the Highlands Ranch Mansion grounds, choosing one or more locations to paint “en plein air” — in the open air — capturing images of the mansion and gardens in a certain kind of light at a particular point in the day. They will work in pastels, oil paint, watercolor and acrylics — and some may choose to draw at times. Twenty percent of artwork sales will benefit the Highlands Ranch Park and Recreation Foundation. The public is invited to visit the mansion grounds from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. to watch artists at work — and

Artists have been painting outside for many years — we think of French Impressionists Monet and Renoir — but interest in the technique has grown exponentially in recent years as more and more painters realize the joy of capturing a special spot at a particular moment and sharing it with others. There are local, state and national societies, competitions and exhibits — but not many opportunities to look over the artists’ shoulder and watch it happen in a few minutes. They have learned through experience to work quickly, because the light shifts continually and weather may change in the next minute or two! (Of course, capturing that approaching storm is a favorite subject.) Perhaps, one will want to visit a given painter several times during the day to see visions change and develop — and learn a bit about where

‘Hairspray’ cast and crew bring classic show to life A behind-the-scenes look at producing Parker’s summer musical BY CASEY VAN DIVIER SPECIAL TO COLORADO COMMUNITY MEDIA

As director and choreographer of a larger-than-life production like “Hairspray,” Liane Adamo leaves no question unasked when working with the cast and crew: “Was it a shimmy or a flick?” she asks of a hand movement for a dance move at a recent rehearsal. Adamo, executive director of Inspire Creative, and her team have partnered with Parker Arts to develop the summer show, which opens July 14 and runs through Aug. 6 at the PACE Center, 20000 Pikes Peak Ave., Parker. Cast and crew members have put in the hours — 20, 30, even 40 hours a week — to make every second count in the two-hour production. Whether they’re calling the shots, singing the songs or building the sets, each individual plays an important role in making the show a memorable experience. The crew Since the middle of May, stage technician Roderick Borden and his stagehands have been creating the set that scenic designer Michael Duran spent nearly a month conceptualizing. “With PACE, we really try hard to make each set design different — to wow you in some different way,” said Borden, 34, one of more than 30 PACE Center stagehands and outside professionals working on “Hairspray.” As the stage technician for PACE, he has built sets for many productions, but he considers “Hairspray”

Jessica Hall, who plays Tracy Turnblad, and Laurence Katz, the production’s Link Larkin, rehearse for one of the big dance numbers in the show “Hairspray.” PHOTOS BY CASEY VAN DIVIER one of his most ambitious projects yet. “We’re building rotating panels that will be automated to put you in different scenes and locations,” Borden said. “We really had to work as one big team when it came to figuring out how to create that.” Stage manager Kelsea Heimlich, 25, employs problem-solving techniques, as well. She is responsible for communicating with the entire team, calling the show, and just about anything else that comes up along the way. “It’s a lot longer of a process than SEE HAIRSPRAY, P21

people ever actually think it is, but it’s so rewarding,” Heimlich said. “It’s always interesting to work with different directors and find out how they want things done. This show’s been awesome because Liane is a really organic choreographer, and she’s brought the same thing into her directing.” Adamo, usually a choreographer, is directing her first mainstage production. She has devoted hours to blocking scenes, recording dance moves and making suggestions to the crew. She often wakes up as early as four o’clock in the morning to get it all done. “As lighthearted as this show is — and fun — there are some pretty pertinent points to the story,” she said. “So being able to express that in the arts is amazing.” Director and choreographer Liane Adamo teaches a new dance routine to the cast of “Hairspray.” sional place, and now they do this type of work for fun. Other people are young, maybe students,” Adamo said. “A lot of them go from show to show. This is their life outside of having a nine-to-five job.” “I’m so honored to be part of this cast, because I think everyone’s so talented,” said Christy Oberndorf, 20, who will be playing the role of Penny Pingleton. “It’s like watching a cartoon, but with real-live people.

All the characters are so big and ridiculous.” Jessica Hall, the 27-year-old actress who will play Tracy Turnblad, also anticipates the opportunity to portray an iconic character in the production. “It’s a little terrifying, but also exciting and wonderful,” she said. “The show takes a lot of collaboration, and I think our cast is blowing it out of the water.”

Making sure every stroke counts Before they get to roam the course, rules officials must pass rigorous training BY JIM BENTON JBENTON@COLORDOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

They drive around the golf course in carts and get good views of the action. They are the rules officials who volunteer at the various levels of golf, both professional and amateur. And while some golfers would rather not see them, officials say they are not out to marshal players — just to help them follow the rules. “We can’t run a tournament without rules officials because their job is to enforce the rules of golf and provide assistance to those golfers who do not know the rules and decisions on the rules of golf,” said Laura Robertson, executive director of the Colorado Women’s Golf Association. “Rules officials are there to help. We’re not there as a police force trying to find rules violations.” Workshops, seminars, tests and ridealongs are among the training that takes a number of years for volunteers before becoming certified United States Golf Association-certified rules officials. Tom Kennedy, a retired Colorado Springs district judge, is a USGA chief rules official and said of the tutoring, “I hadn’t studied this hard since I took the bar exam 48 years ago. They made me work to become a certified rules official.” It’s demanding to be a rules administrator since there are 34 rules of golf, but every two years a large book is published concerning decisions on the rules. That’s to help clarify any ambiguity that might arise from the rules to allow rules officials to correctly interpret the rules. “You not only have to master the rules but understand the decisions,” Kennedy said. “Sometimes you have to use a judgment call. I’m used to making decisions, but I want it to be in a positive way. “I’ve made a lot of decisions sending people to prison for a very long time and those were never fun decisions. The decisions we are making out here on the golf course are to help educate the players. So if they make a mistake on the rule, they won’t make it a second time.” Brad Wiesley, a lawyer who lives near Indian Tree Golf Club in Arvada, is another chief rules official. “None of us like when a penalty is involved,” he said. “Some people think the rules official is handing out penalties. We never do that. The penalty is because of the rules of golf. “The reasons there are so many SEE RULES, P29

Sandy Schnitzer has been a rules official for the past four years and says “my call is really to help the golfer have a good round of golf and to be able to score the best that they can.” PHOTOS BY JIM BENTON

Eli Davidson, a student at the Parker Academy of Martial Arts, kicks through a board held by instructor Lanette Seifert during the annual PAMA in the Park event on July 8. Approximately 300 people came to Hidden River Park to watch students test for their yellow, orange, black and other belts during the event. COURTESY PHOTO

Kicking it in the park Nearly 300 people assembled in Hidden River Park on July 8 to watch students at the Parker Academy of Martial Arts test for their belts, rewarding themselves afterward with shaved ice and an old-fashioned water balloon fight. “I’ve gone to PAMA in the Park every year and it’s always a blast,” said Carrie Luft, who participated in the day’s activities. “It’s family friendly and always a fun time.”

Academy students, ranging in age from 3 to 53 years old, demonstrated taekwondo skills to attain their next level belts while friends and family looked on at the event. After testing finished, the academy’s demonstration team performed an exhibition and students from all the belt ranks played a game of soccer. Other activities included a dunk tank, a bounce house, snow cones from Kona Ice and a photo booth, and the afternoon closed with a massive water balloon fight.

RULES FROM PAGE 24

decisions is because golfers find interesting situations to get into. Sometimes there is not a decision to cover exactly what happened. So you have to do some interpretations. Similar situations are treated alike.” There are many rules that might be misinterpreted or broken. And golfers have a knack for getting themselves in odd — and sometimes, truly hazardous — situations. Rules official Sandy Schnitzer recalls that twice in the past few years a ball has landed on mating snakes. It happened once at Riverdale Dunes in Brighton, she said, when a tee shot on a par 3 landed on top of two bull snakes. The other time was at Murphy Creek in Aurora and rattlesnakes were the landing spot for a ball. Those were deemed “dangerous situations” and the golfers were allowed to move the ball without a penalty. Wiesley recalls a situation in which a player hit a ball near a tree by the green with a nest of swarming wasps. As with the snake situations, the golfer was allowed to move the ball without penalty. But most rulings aren’t as dramatic. “The junior tournaments, I find, give you the most rulings because a lot of times the younger people don’t know enough,” said rules official Andrew Snyder, of Greenwood Village. “It’s a learning experience for them and for us.” Colorado Golf Association Execu-

tive Director Ed Mate says advice other than public information — like yardage, hazards and where the flagstick is located — can be a violation. “Probably the rule that gets broken a lot of times unwittingly is advice, anything you say to somebody that can influence their play,” Mate said. “Like I noticed something in your swing or boy that breeze sure is blowing hard. Things like that. There’s a line that you have to be really careful about.” Schnitzer, an Erie resident, has seen many golfers puzzled by water. “Golfers sometimes get confused over the relief they can take from a direct water hazard and lateral water hazard,” she said. Competitive golfers are used to dealing with rules and generally accept the decisions. “Most golfers know the rules and understand the rules are there to treat everybody playing in the event with equality,” Wiesley said. “Every once in a while people get frustrated when things don’t go the way they intend them to go. That can happen, but it is pretty rare. You understand somebody is frustrated. They are not mad at you personally.” Jack Tickle, a junior-to-be at Arapahoe High School, is a promising junior golfer who isn’t intimidated when he sees a rules official watching. “They don’t much get involved unless we ask — and they are helpful,” Tickle said. “I’ve never really had one say ‘I don’t know what that ruling is.’ They always know. They don’t help unless we ask. They let us play.”

Tom Kennedy retired as a Colorado Springs district judge in 2015 and is now a United States Golf Association chief rules official. PHOTOS BY JIM BENTON Brad Wiesley has been a rules official for 10 years and says he volunteers to give something back to the game which he has played since he was a youngster. “My wife tells me I can’t play golf every day so I found a place to be on the golf course where people want to be and I’m doing something helpful for the golf community.”

Chicken chain draws a crowd for opening ceremony Raising Cane’s welcomes customers in Highlands Ranch BY ALEX DEWIND ADEWIND@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Dax Littleton first tried Raising Cane’s chicken fingers at a location in Arizona. The 16-year-old liked the restaurant so much that he convinced two of his friends to camp outside the new Highlands Ranch location for nearly 24 hours in hopes of getting free food for a year. And they did. “It’s totally worth it,” said Littleton, sitting in a fold-up chair behind his car, eating crispy chicken fingers and golden fries at 10 a.m. “We will

If you believe that your lender or servicer has failed to provide a single point of contact (38-38-103.1 CRS) or they are still pursuing foreclosure even though you have submitted a completed loss mitigation application or you have been offered and have accepted a loss mitigation option (38-38-103.2 CRS), you may file a complaint with the Colorado Attorney General (720-508-6006) or the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (855411-2372) or both. However, the filing of a complaint in and of itself will not stop the foreclosure process.
