A case of Denver deja vu? Last year’s battles will surface again this legislative session By Vic Vela

vvela@coloradcommunitymedia.com Going into this year’s legislative session, lawmakers on both sides of the aisle insist that their next 120 days of work will focus on jobs and the economy. But the reality is that Democrats and Republicans will spend a good portion of their time refighting old battles inside the Capitol. Polarizing issues from last year’s session — rural energy mandates; oil and gas industry regulations; election reform; and, yes, gun control — will be debated again. It’s enough to make Yogi Berra proud, because a good portion of this year’s session will seem like deja vu all over again. “When you look at the outcry from the last session, there are some things that need to be looked at again,” said Senate Minority Leader Bill Cadman, R-Colorado Springs. “And we will have an opportunity to fix them.” Republicans will sponsor bills that seek to undo a Democrat-sponsored gun control package that was placed into law following last year’s session. The package led to new laws that created universal background checks on gun sales; limited the amount of ammunition that a high-

But Democratic leaders aren’t interested in having the same gun debates from last session, ones that led to emotionallycharged testimony and marathon committee hearings and floor votes.

“We’re ready to move forward in Colorado and solve the problems that people are telling us we need to solve,” said House Speaker Mark Ferrandino, D-Denver. “We don’t need to rehash the same fights we fought over last year.” Battles continues on Page 9

While the face of Main Street generally remains the same, the pace and the places were in an upward swing during 2013, says City Manager Michael Penny. “Dozens of initiatives that have been put in place over the last two years are really starting to take off,” he said. His staff has spent the last two years building a strong relationship with the downtown merchants, he says, and taking a more proactive role. “The focus has shifted from a passive `gardening’ approach to one in which we reach out to current and potential businesses,” he said. “Many of the businesses locating in Littleton have met and spent a significant amount of time with our staff prior to finding a business location within the city.” He points to programs like the economic-incentive grant, the historic-preservation grant and an upcoming downtown Littleton way-finding initiative that will guide visitors to downtown’s amenities. “The feedback we’re getting from the business community has been overwhelmingly positive,” he said. The new merchants agree. Sharon Jones, owner of Gypsy Jones, can’t seem to stay away despite her wandering nature. She’s been in her current location on Main Street for about three months, in one around the corner on Prince Street for two years before that, in the Streets at SouthGlenn for four years before that, and in two different spots on Main Street for six years before that. “The gypsy was drawn back, and her caravan is home to roost,” she said. Her store is right next to another consignment store, Full Circle, and right next door to that is Soignee, a high-end women’s clothing store that opened in May to round out the selection. “I love the quaintness of Main Street,” said owner Diane Lessnau, adding that she’s excited the city is hiring an event planner to help throw the doors open to new faces. “I think it could be really a destination place if more people knew we were here.” Penny said the marketing and event coordinator will be on board soon with a mission to increase tourism, hospitality and events to bring more visitors, businesses and residents to the city. Soignee is full of sparkly things, as is Jewells up the street. Store manager Jeff Hayzlett says the company manufactures jewelry ranging from $30 to $70,000, and sells it at wholesale prices (bridal sets excluded). “We had a good Christmas season considering how new we were,” he said. The store opened in October, joining JF Sholl as a jewelry option on Main Street.

Son takes family to uncharted territory Neil DiLorenzo lays the brown folder on the kitchen table. As he tells the tale and to better illustrate his point, he pulls out a map, a list of coordinates, a copy of an email, a log of emergency numbers. The thick file holds a literal paper trail, meticulously plotted, of his son’s extraordinary expedition in unsettled lands far away, a trip of self-discovery taken like pilgrims of old, on foot, alone, depending on the kindness of strangers for food and shelter. And, in this day of immediate and unceasing communication, no cell phone or laptop, therefore — for the most part — no connection to family or friends. “It did hit me, several weeks into it — he’s homeless,” Neil says. “I saw a homeless man and thought, `That’s my son,’ except he’s in a foreign land.” They call it Donovan’s Journey. But make no mistake: It’s Neil and Michelle DiLorenzo’s journey, too, one more in the life of parents, this one lived daily with a worry that hunkers in their hearts, even as they celebrate the unique courage of their child’s unusual quest. Neil: “We don’t really understand why he’s doing this.” Michelle: “It’s something that’s calling him.” Neil: “I think he felt he had to do this to discover himself, to see if he could live without the support of anyone.” For Donovan DiLorenzo, 42, the oldest of Neil and Michelle’s four children, an early career path seemed clear: Make money, lots of it. And as a marketing account executive working for top ad agencies, he was close to earning his first million before 9-11. But the devastating calamity shook him and rearranged his priorities. After researching urban school districts across the country, he decided to teach in the Ninth Ward in New Orleans, a predominantly African-American neighborhood struggling with deep poverty. He earned a master’s in education while teaching there. As Katrina bore down, he delivered two carloads of Ninth Ward residents to his sister’s home in Arkansas for safety, and later relocated them to Dallas — he still keeps in

touch with the families. After Katrina, he gutted flooded homes, cooked in community kitchens and distributed supplies and information to victims. In 2006, he joined the Peace Corps and spent 28 months teaching in Malawi in southeast Africa, one of the world’s leastdeveloped countries. He returned to New Orleans, teaching in a charter school, while also housing and supporting several immigrants from Malawi. “He doesn’t have anything,” Neil says, “but he gives everything he has.” Last summer, Donovan decided to act on a new dream — a pilgrimage through the Middle East and India with the possibility of writing a book about those experiences. To prepare, he gave away all his possessions, including his cell phone and laptop. He mailed books and mementos to his parents’ Highlands Ranch home. He kept one change of clothes, a sleeping bag, a tent and his bike and began cycling to Colorado. For three weeks, Neil and Michelle didn’t know where he was, or how he was. “It was,” says Michelle, who texts her children good morning every day, “awful.” One afternoon, they spotted him riding down the street. “He looked like the UPS man,” Neil says. But Donovan’s test run had proved successful. Planning began for the big journey. “We really wanted him to buy a cell phone,” Neil says. “He refused. He didn’t want to be able to communicate with anyone.” A friend told Neil about a lightweight GPS tracker that fits in the palm of a hand.

“You’re not talking to us,” Neil told Donovan. “You’re not really communicating. At least, as long as the coordinates are moving, we’ll know you’re alive.” So, Donovan agreed. Every three days, he would activate the GPS device. Neil would plot the latitude and longitude on maps and be able to follow his route. The outgoing, friendly boy who loved sports but not hiking or being outdoors, and who often took three showers a day because he was a bit of a clean freak, strapped on Teva sandals, determined to push his boundaries even further. He boarded an airplane for Jordan Aug. 26. “This journey is really a pilgrimage of sorts,” he wrote before he left on a website set up by family to track his travels. “I’ll walk a good portion of my travels such that the journey is slower by nature, giving me more time to think, write and connect with others . . . . As in a traditional pilgrimage, I step out without many resources and see how life unfolds. Not expecting this to very easy, but meaningful.” He had enough money and a credit card to buy local clothing and necessary border and travel documents. The first night in Amman, he spent in a hotel. And then, he was on his way. The first three weeks, Neil and Michelle slept two to three hours a night. Neil developed a routine, checking email as soon as he woke to see if the GPS tracker had sent coordinates, then heading down to the kitchen for coffee with Michelle. One of the earliest locations came through Sept. 2. Neil spreads the map of Jordan, Syria and Israel on the table. His finger jabs the location he has circled in black marker. “He was trying to cross the King Hussein bridge. . . which made me nervous because he’s going from Jordan to Israel . . . ” On Sept. 6, another set of coordinates arrived. They put Donovan just south of the Sea of Galilee. “He’s two, three miles from the Syrian border,” Neil says. “Within a day of that, Obama said we’re going to declare war. For all I knew, he knew nothing of the problem.

. . . (A friend in Egypt) said he’s got to get out of there; he’s got to get a gas mask. We were just totally petrified.” Michelle misses being able to talk to Donovan every day. “I am very nervous . . . that has been really, really hard not knowing where he’s at,” she says. But “you have to let them do their own thing.” Sometimes, finding the locations doesn’t alleviate the worry. Neil folds open another map, a topographical one that seems to depict mountains and no roads. “When I see him in the middle of nowhere, like this,” he says, “it makes me even more concerned.” But Neil has become an expert map finder. What seems like mountains on one map turns out to be hills with a dirt road on another. Neil’s maps trace Donovan’s journey with careful precision. He circles the coordinate locations in black marker and writes the date, then highlights the route in yellow. Occasional emails from Donovan are carefully tagged and posted onto the website, donovansjourney.com, so that family and friends can follow, too. Neil posts information on Facebook, as well. Donovan has journaled three stories about his trip so far, also on the website. He writes about sleepless nights in the open listening to packs of wild dogs outside of Nazareth, the spontaneous kindness of strangers inviting him to tea and conversation, playing with children near the Dead Sea. After walking 661 miles through the Middle East, including a brief stay in Egypt with a friend during which he was able to call Neil and Michelle, Donovan is now walking through India. Inadequate computer and satellite networks have prevented the GPS tracker from sending coordinates. “I worry more about him getting sick and if he gets sick what is he going to do,” Michelle says. “I pray every day that he doesn’t get sick.” Healey continues on Page 9

Organ donors always needed More than 2,000 people in Colorado await a transplant By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@coloradocommunitymedia.com If Joseph Gutierrez could give thanks this holiday season for the best gift he ever got, this is what he would say: “Thanks for having a son or daughter who was selfless in becoming a donor, because it helped save my life and my arm.” And if Carol Hutchinson-Stepp could accept such thanks, she would say: “It feels really wonderful to know that there’s still a part of our son here that’s alive. Not being able to see those eyes is a tragedy, but those eyes allowed two other people to see. … Hopefully whoever has his eyes are seeing birds for the first time, or their children for the time, through his eyes.” Roxborough resident Gutierrez and

Littleton resident Hutchinson-Stepp don’t know each other, and neither of them know who their words should go to. But they both know that organ donation benefits both the recipient and the families of the deceased. Hutchinson-Stepp’s 25-year-old stepson, C. Jay, died in February 2012 of congestive heart failure. It was completely unexpected, as the fun-loving young man was rarely sick. “We saw him in January for the Super Bowl,” she remembers. “We had no idea he was that sick. “He died Feb. 29, so the anniversary of his death is only every four years. Even in death, he did it his own way. The tears still come, and they probably always will. He lived his own life and had his own path, and we’re proud of him for that.” She says when the family realized he had made the “very adult, grown-up decision” to be an organ donor, they knew they had to honor that choice. Though the disease had ravaged much of his body, his corneas were able to give the

gift of sight to two people. In November 2011, Gutierrez began having trouble with his left arm. It was swollen and painful, and he thought he had a torn rotator cuff. An MRI revealed something much worse — a giant-cell tumor. Although benign, such tumors can metastasize into the lungs. His had begun to eat away at the bone in his upper arm, and doctors found it necessary to replace it with a donor humerus. The tumor has come back twice, necessitating two more surgeries, but his new bone has weathered the storm. “You kind of feel sorry for yourself when you’re in a situation like mine, but then you hear the donor families’ stories and you think, ‘You know what? You don’t have it so bad.’ At least they were able to save my arm,” said Gutierrez, who is retired from his long-time career as an Englewood postal carrier. He’s gotten the opportunity to meet many donors’ families through volunteering with Donor Alliance, the Limb

That involvement garnered him a spot on the “Gift of Life” float two years running in both Denver’s Parade of Lights and the Rose Bowl Parade in Pasadena, Calif. “It’s been a real rewarding experience,” he said. “Even though I’ve had three operations on my arm, I’ve gotten to meet some really fantastic people.” Waving to the crowds with his left arm is a challenge, however, because he can only lift it about chest high. “I do as much as I can within my limitations,” said Gutierrez, 65, an avid outdoorsman. “It’s like I have one and a half arms.” According to Donor Alliance, there are more than 2,200 people in Colorado waiting for an organ transplant, though 67 percent of Coloradans have registered to be donors.

School door ‘was supposed to be locked’ Officials detail latest in Arapahoe High shooting investigation By George Lurie

glurie@coloradocommunitymedia.com The gunman gained access to the school through an exterior door that was routinely propped open on most school days, according to the latest details from the investigation into the shooting at Arapahoe High School. “That door was supposed to be locked,” Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson said during a Dec. 30 press briefing. “Unfortunately, it wasn’t.” When asked if a locked exterior door may have kept the Dec. 13 shooting from taking place, the sheriff replied: “I don’t believe that would have prevented this evil act. He would have found a way to enter the school.” Never once saying the name of the 18-year-old gunman, Robinson repeatedly referred to Karl Pierson as “the murderer” and said on the day he entered the school with a shotgun, 125 shotgun shells, a machete and three Molotov cocktails, Pierson had “an absolute focus on doing the maximum amount of harm.” One new detail the sheriff revealed at the briefing: On the morning of the shooting, Pierson “went bowling, alone.” Claire Davis, the 17-year-old student who was shot point blank by Pierson and later died, “was exactly where she had a right to be” on the day of the shooting, Robinson said. “Claire was preparing herself for her future.” Robinson credited James Englert, the sheriff’s deputy stationed at the high school as the school resource officer, with preventing additional bloodshed by responding immediately to the shots fired — “running to the thunder, exactly what our deputies are trained to do.” Robinson confirmed that Pierson fired five shots and set fire to a library bookshelf

District Attorney George Brauchler made a brief statement and answered several questions at the Dec. 30 press briefing regarding the latest information on the Dec. 13 shooting at Arapahoe High. Photo by George Lurie before taking his own life with a sixth shot in the back of the school library. “We are confident the murderer knew Deputy Englert and the (unarmed) school security officer [Rod Mauler] were approaching,” Robinson said. “Less than a minute and 20 seconds [elapsed] between the murderer entering the school and lying dead in the back of the library.” Robinson called Englert “a hero” and said the deputy will be back on duty at the high school beginning Jan. 6. “We think of James as a sheriff’s deputy,” said Robinson. “The students and staff at Arapahoe think of him as a Warrior.” The sheriff also praised school custodian Fabian Llerenas for his role in immediately alerting school officials of “an active shooter situation.” At the start of the hour-long press briefing, held at the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office on East Broncos Parkway in Centennial, Centennial Mayor Cathy Noon, District Attorney

George Brauchler and several federal and state law enforcement officials also issued brief statements. “First and foremost, our hearts go out to the Davis family, whose loss has profoundly touched our community,” Noon said. “Centennial is a family community — families of first responders, families of schools, businesses, neighborhoods and churches. On Dec. 13, those families came together in a big way to support each other and provide Arapahoe High School with comfort, support and safety.” Noon thanked the sheriff’s office and neighboring first responders who, she said, “handled the situation quickly and professionally.” The mayor also thanked the many businesses surrounding the high school for “providing socks, blankets, food, or whatever was needed as students and families rushed from the school.” Brauchler said a total of 12 search warrants

had been executed so far in the investigation and anticipated more would be issued. “This one hits close to home for me,” the Highlands Ranch resident said. “Arapahoe High is awfully close to where I live.” Saying it was “far too early in the process” for definitive answers, Robinson said that investigators still believe Pierson acted “on his own.” “We continue to conduct extensive and detailed interviews, including with members of the murderer’s family,” Robinson said. Robinson revealed that in addition to going bowling, Pierson bought additional rounds of ammunition the morning of Dec. 13. “He entered the school at approximately 12:34 p.m. and immediately fired a shotgun blast down an empty hallway,” the sheriff said. Robinson confirmed Pierson’s second shot hit Davis. After entering the library, Pierson fired another shot into the empty office of librarian and debate coach Tracy Murphy, Robinson said. Pierson, a member of the debate team, had threatened Murphy after a disagreement with the coach in September. Robinson confirmed the incident had been reported to law enforcement authorities. The day before the shooting occurred, Robinson had announced his plans to retire on Jan. 31. Saying he “will not arbitrarily put a timeline” on finishing the investigation, Robinson did confirm that he still plans to retire in early 2014. “This investigation will not be concluded on my watch,” he added. Robinson has been the Arapahoe County sheriff since 2002 and has recommended Arapahoe County Commissioners appoint his undersheriff, David C. Walcher, to finish out his term of office. In a statement made at the press briefing, Walcher vowed the ongoing investigation “will be thorough and complete — period.”

Laughter, light and forgiveness fill arena

Celebration of Claire Davis’ life draws thousands By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@coloradocommunitymedia.com “Oh my gosh, Karl, what are you doing?” Those are the words that Claire Davis’ anguished father says were her last, spoken in the split second before Karl Pierson shot her in the head. “Claire tried to shine her light on his darkness,” said Michael Davis as he addressed the thousands of people who attended the celebration of Claire’s life, held at the National Western Stock Show arena on Jan. 1. Claire’s mother, Desiree, stood by his side as the room rose in a standing ovation. Although first responders rushed Claire from Arapahoe High School to the operating room within 30 minutes of the shooting on Dec. 13, she lapsed into a coma from which she would never emerge. She died on Dec. 21. Friends and family hope the entire community will take her final words forward as it tries to heal from yet another tragedy. “Before we say or do something, we should reflect and ask ourselves that last question,” said Pastor Steve PoosBenson of Columbine United Church. “Ask ourselves what is it we are doing, and what is it we are doing to one another?” Michael Davis asked that Claire’s legacy be the light with which she filled the lives of all who knew her. “My wife and I forgive Karl Pierson,” he said. “Karl is no longer with us. It is no longer our responsibility to judge. As each of us must do someday, Karl must face infinity alone.” He said Claire would want every-

to give The Davis family has established a fund in Claire’s name that will be used to support mental-health and anti-violence causes in the community. Arapahoe High School Community Fund The Denver Foundation Philanthropic Services 55 Madison Street, Eighth Floor Denver, Colo. 80206-5423 www.denverfoundation.org 720-974-2602 one to forgive Pierson, and would want all who mourn her to keep love alive and light in their lives. “Make love more important than hate, desperation and fear,” he said. Light and laughter seemed to fill every crevice of Claire’s life. Her boyfriend, Alex Chapman, let her say how important those things were to her in her own words, by reading a letter she wrote as part of a college application. “I think laughter makes people real,” she wrote. “I love to laugh and smile and, more importantly, to make others laugh and smile.” Chapman recalled how he knew she was special the minute he laid eyes on her. “I looked at her and I said, `Wow, she would be someone amazing to be with,’” he said. “… I love Claire so much, and I always will.” Several well-known names attended the event — U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet, Gov. John Hickenlooper and Olympian and Centennial resident Missy Franklin all spoke, and Claire’s favorite band, One Direction, sent their regrets. Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson was recognized with a standing ovation, and praise went out to all the first responders, including Deputy James Englert, the school-resource officer who got to the scene within seconds, and firefighters from Littleton Fire Rescue Station 15, who rushed Claire to Littleton Adventist Hospital.

But it was the people who knew Claire who brought her to life for those who didn’t. They told tales of screaming at teen-idol concerts, giggling for hours on end, making friendship bracelets, drinking milkshakes and talking about boys. “Almost every moment I spent with Claire we were laughing,” said Mary Strauss, a friend since middle school. “Over the years she taught me so much, but most importantly, how to love someone more than you love yourself.” Rebecca Johnson, Claire’s riding coach for seven years, said Claire was a fierce competitor on her horse, Graphite Gran Grannus, but rode with grace under pressure and true class. “Above all else, she was kind, and the horses knew that, and they loved her,” said Johnson, who nicknamed Claire “Fluffy Rainbow Child.” “She left me an improved woman and a better coach,” she said. “Claire was my friend, and I loved her, and I know that love was returned.” Near the end of the ceremony, Johnson walked the horse out and retired the saddle of his fallen rider, presenting it to Claire’s mother. Poos-Benson sent the mourners home with a message to be vigilant in working to end the violence. “You need to go find the Karl Piersons in our community, and ask those Karls, `What are you doing? Where are you? We need you to be a part of us,’” he said. “You need to make sure that Karl gets help.” Claire’s parents and older brother, Alexander, thanked the community for its incredible support throughout their unimaginable ordeal. “She knew what it meant to have a friend and to be a friend,” said her father. “She was learning to find her bliss. The world was a better place with her in it, but we are coming to accept that it was time for us to return the gift to the giver.”

Marijuana, driving can lead to DUI Motorists must submit to test if officer suspects impairment Staff report

About 80 Regional Transportation Authority bus and light rail routes were subject to changes on Jan. 1. Most changes involved schedule adjustments. File photo

RTD routes change with the year Bus, light rail trips see modifications By Tom Munds

tmunds@coloradocommunitymedia.com Changes became effective Jan. 1 on about 80 Regional Transportation District bus and light rail routes. The district makes adjustments to bus and light rail service three times a year to meet changes ridership or bus travel times. On Jan. 1, the majority of impacted routes will see schedule changes including a few area routes. Only one route, the YL route serving Lyons and Longmont, was eliminated. Most Jan. 1 route changes involve scheduling. On some routes, the frequency of service is changed, often to accommodate higher ridership during rush hours. On other routes, some scheduled trips on a route that have at low ridership are being discontinued. For information about schedule changes, go to the website at www.rtd-denver. com and click on the tab marked schedule changes.

“Our service development group tracks schedules and ridership,” said Scott Reed, RTD public affairs officer. “Generally, changes come three times a year. For example, we adjust schedules when students return to school in August. We also may make schedule changes at the request of a community to meet increased ridership demands because of new businesses or facilities.” He also said that the times on scheduled sometimes need to be adjusted because of impacts to bus travel time such as road construction or increased traffic volume. Even as new service changes begin, RTD is working on the changes scheduled for May 11. Two of the major RTD changes in May involve the opening of Union Station as a transportation hub plus the scheduled opening of the new Free MetroRide, a shuttle bus from Union Station to the Denver Civic Center. Two meetings are scheduled for Jan. 29 to discuss these and other proposed service changes. Both meetings will be held at the RTD Administrative Building at 1600 Blake St. in Denver. One meeting is at noon and there will be a second meeting covering the same material at 6 p.m.

SouthPark catches a tax break By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@coloradocommunitymedia.com Most places don’t want to go out of business, but the SouthPark Metropolitan District couldn’t be happier. “We are happy to say that without help from any other entities, we have paid off our obligations in full as the 30-year plan was designed,” reports Pat Dunahay, president of the district. “This will be a reduction of property taxes to all the commercial property owners that reside in SouthPark.” The district paid off its debt on Dec. 1, and the Arapahoe County Court granted the order to dissolve on Dec. 20. It was created in 1983, after the city of Littleton’s 1981 comprehensive plan directed that the area — bounded generally by County Line Road, Mineral Avenue, Broadway and Santa Fe Drive — evolve as a regional employment center. The plan has come to fruition with many

medical-related companies setting up shop to support Littleton Adventist Hospital, lots of technology businesses, Mission Hills Church, Ice Ranch skating rink and more. It consists of 498 acres, of which 176 are residential and 322 are mixed-use business park. Dunahay said the district collected about $350,000 in property taxes last year. The rate was 35 mills at its highest, falling to just 6 mills last year. Property owners in the district will no longer have to pay that tax, which was implemented so the new growth would pay for itself. “This will help keep the park competitive,” said Dunahay. “It’s always been a goal of ours to be about $2 a foot cheaper than our nearby competition. I really believe we are there now.” The SouthPark Owners Association, an all-volunteer board supported by member dues, will continue to manage the district. It plans upward of $30,000 in landscape improvements early this year.

State officials are reminding the public that just because marijuana is now legal, driving under its influence is decidedly illegal. “From the perspective of law enforcement, the legalization of recreational marijuana hasn’t changed the DUI law. If you drive high, you will get a DUI,” said Col. Scott Hernandez, chief of the Colorado State Patrol. “Officers are trained to detect impairment of all substances, including marijuana.” All police officers are trained to detect when someone is drunk or high, and many are specially trained drug-recognition experts. Littleton Police Cmdr. Trent Cooper says nothing will change for local departments. “Amendment 64 doesn’t change anything for us, currently, in terms of enforcement of DUID,” he said. “Basically, an officer would have to suspect impairment, then conduct the standard DUID investigation.” Colorado requires all drivers to consent to a chemical test if a police officer has reasonable grounds to believe they are driving under the influence. Consequences of refusing the test include the immediate suspension of your driver’s license for a year, classification as a “persistent drunk driver,”

mandatory ignition interlock for two years and alcohol education and therapy classes as specified by law. It’s also illegal to consume or display marijuana on any public roadway or to have it in an open container in your car, as with alcohol. The state has established the legal limit for THC, the psychoactive component of marijuana, at five nanograms per milliliter of blood. “There are some who do not feel that marijuana can impair driving, but it does,” said Darrell Lingk, director of CDOT’s Office of Transportation Safety. “Marijuana affects reaction time, short-term memory, hand-eye coordination, concentration and perception of time and distance.” According to the Colorado Judicial Branch, there were 24,742 DUI and DWAI cases filed in 2012 throughout the state of Colorado. If convicted, the offender is required to undergo an alcohol and drug evaluation. Out of 23,519 evaluations in 2012, marijuana was involved in 1,045. “We’re trying to gather as many facts as possible about marijuana-impaired driving to give us a baseline on the current situation in Colorado to better inform and educate the public on this issue,” said Amy Ford, director of communications at CDOT. “Recreational marijuana is a new liberty afforded to Coloradans 21 years old and older, and we urge people to be responsible by not driving impaired.” For more information, visit www.HeatIsOnColorado.com.

opinions / yours and ours

Focus on hearing with your heart So last week I talked about the importance of speaking kindly and lovingly to one another, sincere flattery, and being intentional in our effort to show how we truly feel. That was the “speaking” part, but what happens when it comes to listening to what is being said to us, and actually hearing it? Too often I witness a game of verbal ping-pong. You know the game where one person offers a compliment and the recipient feels like they must say something nice in return. And then the game begins, a back-and-forth, to-and-fro endless string of niceties shared with one another. If truly sincere, it is a loving and awesome display to watch. If it is just chatter, I hate to be the bearer of the bad and obvious news, the insincerity is very clear to everyone around, including the two people in the game. Let’s challenge the thinking a little bit here. What if, and I am just saying what if, the person who receives the first compliment and listens with their ears, lets it settle in, and truly hears it with their heart?

Perhaps what might have started as a cordial conversation just to say something nice, could actually turn into a meaningful discussion between two or more people where everyone feels good about the outcome. Something good can come from everything and every encounter. The problem is that too often we want to rush in and compete in the conversation and feel it necessary to say something nice back to the other person. What if we were a little more patient in our response? What if we listened with

letter to the editor if you don’t have something nice to say Re: Michael Norton column in editions of Jan. 2 and 3: Mr. Norton, One of the phrases in your column, “If you don’t have something nice to say, don’t say anything at all” brought back a memory from a standup comedian who appeared on the Ed Sullivan show back in the early 1960s. Her name was Moms Mabley. She was talking about a nasty uncle who had

recently passed away. She was commenting on how he was not a very nice person and then she suddenly stopped and said, “You know what they say. If you can’t say something good about a person, then you shouldn’t say anything at all. Well, he’s dead…good.” I have no idea why I remember that. Good article on flattery, Michael. Michael H. Kennedy Centennial

Washington can learn from Colorado For many Americans, 2013 was an eventful year. For Coloradans, it tested our resilience, our courage and our willpower. We fought the most destructive wildfire in our history (Black Forest), as well one of the largest (West Fork), only to be hit by unprecedented flooding less than three months later. Meanwhile, farmers in the southeastern corner of our state endured months of unending drought that has crippled their harvests and threatened their livelihood. And as the year came to a close another high school was left rattled by senseless and horrible violence. Coloradans, as usual, showed their mettle and have come together in every corner of the state to support one another, recover, rebuild, and carry on. Unfortunately, the same isn’t true of Congress. The first session of the 113th Congress has been called one of the least effective in the history of the United States. Partisan gridlock has halted progress on a variety of issues critical to Colorado’s success, including immigration, education, and a national food and farming policy. Most frustrating was the manufactured government shutdown that left thousands without a paycheck and reduced our gross domestic product by $24 billion. But in true Colorado fashion, our delegation — Democrats and Republicans — found ways to work together and put Colorado first. While we didn’t agree on every issue, in times of crisis we worked across the aisle to make sure federal resources were available for rescue, recovery and rebuilding efforts. As of early December, we secured more than $136 million in grants and low-interest loans to help Coloradans in areas affected by the floods. We also secured nearly $20 million in Emergency Watershed Protection Funding to fund watershed conservation and erosion prevention

for communities recovering from the High Park and Waldo Canyon Fires. The delegation also pushed Congress to maintain the Payment in Lieu of Taxes (PILT) program that helps our local communities offset losses in property taxes due to nontaxable federal land. PILT payments help counties provide critical services, such as police, fire protection, emergency response, and infrastructure. And we worked with the Natural Resources Conservation Service to preserve funding for the USDA’s Snow Survey and Water Supply Forecasting Program. It measures Colorado’s snowpack, providing essential information for water managers who must know how much water they can expect in the coming months. For avid hikers in southern Colorado, we were able to trim bureaucracy to help “officially” legalize the Manitou Incline for public use. Now thousands of outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy the pleasure of surmounting this popular and legendary vertical mile trail. Big issues wait for us in this new year. Among them, we need to pass a Farm Bill to provide Colorado’s farmers and ranchers with the security, stability, and resources they need to continue providing food, fuel and fiber for the country. We need to fix our broken immigration system to secure or borders, strengthen our economy and create a path forward for immigrants living in the shadows. And we need Bennet continues on Page 9

our ears and heard it, really heard it with our hearts? We just might realize that the other person has said something profound and is truly trying to be sincere and nice. When we rush right back into it with our own compliment, we may even hurt their feelings as they feel like we didn’t take the time to appreciate what it is that they actually said. Listening with our ears and hearing with our hearts really are two different things. When we only listen with our ears we sometimes rush to judgment or feel the need to start the volley of verbal pingpong. When we hear with our hearts, we are looking at the other person beyond what it is we see at face value. And we look for ways to thank them, maybe even ask more questions about their compliment or their intentions. Flattery will get you everywhere, sincere flattery that is. And when we learn to hear with our hearts for the positive attitude, good-natured intentions, and sincere compliment we will begin to enjoy a much

healthier relationship with all of those around us. And for those of you who just have a hard time accepting a compliment, this is definitely the advice for you. Listen with your ears, but slow down and hear things with your heart. You will come to accept accolades and praises with much greater ease. So in 2014 let’s focus on speaking loving, kind, and sincere sentiments to one another, and at the same time, let’s focus on hearing those very same kind and loving words with our hearts and not just our ears. I would love to hear all about your commitment to make 2014 a year of speaking kind words and hearing with your hearts at gotonorton@gmail.com, because when you apply both to your life, each and every week will be a better than good week. Michael Norton is a resident of Highlands Ranch, the former president of the Zig Ziglar Corp. and the CEO/founder of www. candogo.com.

Catch some bass? No thanks The car next to you at the red light is throbbing with bass. What do you do? Do you throb with bass too? Not me. I don’t want to wind up like Pete Townsend and have to say “Huh?” for the rest of my life. There’s really not much you can do. You risk a lot if your give him the finger or even glare. Chances are it’s someone under 21 whose insurance rates have been climbing after a series of motoring incidents. The five and a half years he spent in high school were far out. And mom and dad never said a word to him about civility. Our highways are very democratic. You have as much right to them if you are a dolt as you do if you are on your way to give a lecture to a graduate seminar at DU. You may be the pick of the pack at home or at work, but in between, on the streets, you are just another motorist. We already have a lane for high occupancy vehicles. (Which, by the way, means two. Does that sound like high occupancy to you?) I think it would be wonderful if we could further distinguish motoring lanes. For example: a high-IQ occupancy lane. How about a lane for anyone who doesn’t wear his pants lower than his underwear? A lane just for UCLA alumni would be fine with me. A lane for anyone who doesn’t talk with their hands.

But Democrats won’t have much a choice. Besides gun legislation, Cadman said that his party will introduce bills that seek “fixes” to an election reform bill last session, one that created same-day voter registration in Colorado. Also, look for a bill from House Republicans that would scale back legislation signed into law last year, which doubled the renewable-energy mandate for rural electric cooperatives. “Since it passed, the passion from the people in rural Colorado about how it’s going to be detrimental to them has not let up,” said House Minority Leader Brian DelGrosso, R-Loveland. “If the rural peoples’ voice is wanting to be beard, I hope that Ferrandino and his crew will at least take a look at that.” The House GOP will introduce a slate of bills that would reduce regulations on small businesses and will focus on helping

economies in rural communities, DelGrosso said. DelGrosso said that last year’s session was more “left-centric” than what Coloradans had bargained for. He said that voters’ resentment over major pieces of Democrat-sponsored legislation was apparent during the recall election losses by Senate President John Morse of Colorado Springs and Angela Giron of Pueblo. Evie Hudak of Westminster resigned rather than face her own recall attempt. “I think some of the gun debate obviously started that, but I think overall the folks that were voting in the recall election were like, ‘I don’t think the people representing us were focusing on us,’” DelGrosso said. Ferrandino rejects that assertion. He said that gun background checks are working and that the voices among Colorado’s rural community are being heard. The House speaker pointed to legislation passed last year that provided grants to help rural communities diversify their economies and a separate bill that created a health and social services center inside Bent County’s Fort Lyon Correctional Facility.

“It’s the unknown,” Neil says, “and how is he going to handle it.” Through scarce emails, they knew Donovan had traveled in December to a wellknown ashram in Puttaparthi to meditate and study awhile. “He’s right here,” Neil says, pointing to the town north of Bangalore. “I feel he’s in a safer place.

Ferrandino also reminded his Republican colleagues that debate was never cut off last year, on any issue. “I’ve made a concerted effort to make sure everybody has a voice,” the House speaker said. “Just because you don’t get your way doesn’t mean your voice isn’t being heard. While it’s a good talking point for the other side, the facts don’t support that assertion.” Ferrandino said that the first priority of the House will be to work on flood and wildfire legislation, which should come with strong bipartisan support. Senate President Morgan Carroll, D-Aurora, said the first bill out the Senate aims to curb escalating college tuition costs that are “crippling a generation of opportunity for kids.” Carroll also previewed legislation that seeks reduce the financial burden on parents for child care costs. Carroll said that she expects legislation on oil and gas industry regulations. She said there is “a good chance” that the Senate will pass legislation that died last year, which would raise fines on companies for toxic spills. Carroll is not naïve to the new reality

She is hopeful that Senate Republicans will support many Democratic bills, but acknowledges that some battles will be difficult. “The 18-17 vote really matters,” she said. Carroll hopes the two sides can move beyond partisan politics this session. “The people really are sick of bickering,” she said. “They’re sick of partisan mudslinging. They’re tired of excuses. They frankly don’t want to hear it. They don’t want to know who is to blame for what; they just want us to get the job done.” Meanwhile, Cadman insists that his party isn’t over-estimating Coloradans’ “outcry” from last year, by trying to undo laws that are already on the books. “We’re not proposing legislation based on reactions,” he said. “We are proposing legislation based on fixing the things we think (Democrats) did wrong. So it’s not a popularity contest. This about doing what we feel is right and, frankly, correcting what we feel was wrong. Period.”

Dining options became even more diverse in 2013, and with Jose’s and the old Opus space still empty, 2014 could see even more. For now, Pho Real became Main Street’s first Asian option, opening in the old Tres Jolie space in August. “We just thought that pho would be a good fit for the neighborhood,” said owner Victor Nguyen. “We bring healthy, good food to the small community. And the city’s been awesome, so helpful. (City staff ) did everything they could to get us open as fast as possible.” Another unique addition is In-Tea,

known for its liquor-infused tea but offering a selection of pastries and grab-and-go lunches, as well. Store owner Carole Alvarez says they’ll be expanding their sake collection and offering tastings and classes on the rice-based liquor. “We’re doing awesome here,” she said. Having opened in April, she’s been impressed with the strong merchants association and how supportive all the businesses are of each other. “It’s very unique,” she said. The long-awaited La Vaca also opened in March. The name means “cow” in Spanish, and they offer up the best parts for sale. Manager Parker Mosley said the community feeling on Main Street has been great. “It’s just an awesome city to be a part of,” he said. “It’s changing in a lot of good ways, and it’s a great time to be a part of it.”

Birthday cake fit for a king Don’t blame it on LeBron James, but the Denver Nuggets lost to him and his Miami Heat team on his birthday Dec. 30. Sugarmill, the new bakery owned by celebrated local chef Troy Guard, crafted a birthday cake for the Miami Heat superstar. It was a red velvet masterpiece, which apparently gave him and his team good luck, much to our chagrin. Oh well, we’ll be good sports and wish James a very belated happy 29th birthday!

Contemporary twists to familiar tale ‘Aida’ on stage at the Aurora Fox By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe @coloradocommunitymedia.com “Aida,” the musical by Elton John and Tim Rice, based on Verdi’s opera, has a fine score, a somewhat complicated storyline and contemporary touches to the often-told love triangle story. Ignite Theatre presents it through Jan. 19 at the Aurora Fox, where Egyptian artifacts loaned by the Denver Museum of Nature and Science add atmosphere to the lobby. Director Keith Rabin’s staging of this familiar tale about Radames, the Egyptian army captain, Aida, the Nubian Princess and Amneris the daughter of the Pharoah, opens in the Egyptian exhibit of a contemporary museum. Two young people visiting the exhibit, become intrigued

if you go “Aida” plays through Jan. 19 at the Aurora Fox Main Stage, 9900 E. Colfax Ave., Aurora. Performances: 7:30 p.m. Fridays, Saturdays; 2:30 p.m. Sundays. Tickets: $27/$19/$15. 720-362-2697, ignitetheatre.com

with each other and a statue of a female pharaoh, Amneris, comes to life to sing “Every Story is a Love Story.” The original couple reappears as Radames (Alejandro Roldan) appears with his soldiers and a group of captured Nubian women, including Aida (Olivia James), while Amneris (Lindsey Falduto) phases right across centuries, still singing. These lead actors have strong, welltrained voices but initially the sound system was not functioning adequately on opening night and music by the band almost drowned them out at times. By Act II, the balance improved and we assume it will be further fine-tuned.

When there is a Tony Award-winning score, one wants to enjoy it evenly throughout a performance. Rice’s lyrics work well most of the time and there are several that stand out: “My Strongest Suit,” “Elaborate Lives,” “A Step Too Far.” The story brings Radames, who is betrothed to the Pharoah’s Daughter, Amneris, back from the war against Nubia. Among the captives is Princess Aida, with whom he falls in love in a relationship that goes against his father’s plans for him, as well as the wishes of Aida’s father and of course, the ailing Pharoah. Aida’s fellow Nubian captives want her to lead them, while she is focused on Radames — which will surely not end well. The threat of death hovers as music and dance tell the familiar tale. The choreography is perhaps beyond the skills of some cast members and not entirely successful. Costumes are colorful and deliver the images to carry the story on a simple stage set.

Tropical Smoothie Café, known for its healthy food with a tropical twist, entered the Colorado market in October 2013 with the opening of its café in the Denver Tech Center at 5332 DTC Blvd., Greenwood Village. The second café opened on Nov. 29 at the Streets at Southglenn, 6955 S. York St., Centennial. A third location will open in early 2014 in the Centennial Promenade on County Line Road. Husband and wife franchisee team, Michelle and Kriss Shriver, currently own and operate three cafés in Nevada and the “Franchisee of the Year” winners recently bought the rights for the franchise in Colorado. Tropical Smoothie Café should prove to be a welcome newcomer to the “leanest state in the nation.” The smoothies are made from real fruit and natural sugar. The menu includes toasted wraps, bistro sandwiches, grilled flatbreads and gourmet salads made freshto-order. All nutritional information is displayed on the café’s countertops so that customers know what they are ordering. While Tropical Smoothie Café is a national franchise, the Shrivers’ focus is local. “We are passionate about education and plan on holding ongoing fundraisers for schools. We are also dedicated to raising money for and promoting awareness of Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB), a rare skin disorder that causes extreme skin fragility. We were so happy to be able to use our recent grand opening as a way to shed some light on this little known disease.” At the opening, the Shrivers presented a check for $3,000 to Children’s Hospital Colorado’s EB Clinic, which was accepted by Krystle Martinez, whose 4-year-old son, Darren, has the disease and attends the CHC’s EB Clinic.

Denver burger joints make list

Thrillist Nation, the online food judge that drives me crazy because of its overwrought writing, has come up with a list of the 16 best burgers of 2013. Two Denver burger makers made it on the coveted top 16 list. They are: • Best Cheese Overload, If That Existed, But It Doesn’t: The Thrilled Cheese Burger Radio, Denver “Created exclusively for you beautiful Thrillist readers, this thing is built between two grilled cheese sandwiches and includes two patties, two slices of American cheese, three bacon strips, and a big hunk of mac & cheese. This is not kosher, but it is very delicious.” Note: Burger Radio is a food truck that promises “highfrequency grub” with announcements of where the truck is through Facebook, Twitter and its website (www.burgerradio.com). • Most Reliable Burger: The Three Corners Larkburger Larkburger, Denver “Shown at this year’s Denver Burger Battle, a patty sits among bacon, crispy jalapeños, masa-crusted tomato, and Tillamook cheddar. Bacon and jalapeños seem to be the only things we can count on these days. Thanks, guys.” Larkburger has more than a dozen Colorado locations, including downtown Denver, Washington Park, Arvada, Boulder, Greenwood Village, Littleton and Broomfield. A new location is coming to Centennial soon. For more information, visit www.larkburger.com.

South Metro Denver Chamber Hosts Annual Legislative Reception On Wednesday, December 18, 2013 the South Metro Denver Chamber hosted its annual legislative reception. The event, held in the atrium at Columbia College’s Aurora campus, was attended by more than 50 business leaders from the south metro area and 7 state legislators. The program began with a toast delivered by Andrew Graham, owner of Clinic Service. Senators Linda Newell (D-Littleton) and David Balmer (R-Centennial) joined Representatives Angela Williams (D-Denver), Chris Holbert (R-Parker), Polly Lawrence (R-Roxborough), Daniel Kagan (D-Cherry Hills / Englewood), and Spencer Swalm (R-Centennial) to provide a recap of the 2013 legislative session and a preview of the 2014 legislative session. Major themes included job creation and easing the burden on small businesses. John Brackney, President & CEO of the South Metro Denver Chamber applauded the legislators’ bipartisan tone. “We were all encouraged to see how much these legislators respect each other and we urge them to work together throughout the session for the benefit of our state.” Jeff Wasden, the Chamber’s Vice-Chair of Public Affairs echoed those sentiments and expressed the gratitude of the business community for the legislators’ service to South Metro Denver. Carol Braverman, co-owner of Mountaintop Acupuncture, enjoyed both the presenters and those present: “[It was] so interesting to hear each legislator’s achievements and upcoming agendas, and the attendees were equally engaging.” The Chamber thanks the event’s presenting sponsor Clinic Service, venue sponsor Columbia College, and catering sponsor Sava Catering.

Book details life of adventure, despite cancer Castle Rock author describes how he and wife lived good life By Virginia Grantier

vgrantier @coloradocommunitymedia.com They were both 14, high school freshmen in Wauseon, Ohio, when they first dated, then reconnected in college, and ended up being married for almost 30 years — and for the majority of those years, Ron Richards’ wife had cancer. And one of their children had emotional and medical problems. And at one point Richards had cancer. But the Castle Rock resident said recently that through it all it was mainly a life of adventure and positiveness and optimism, even though there was adversity — because he and his wife, Sara Richards, were determined that’s what it would be. And so they made it that way. And now he’s written a book about it and will give a short talk at a 2 to 4 p.m. Jan. 18 local-authors showcase at Philip S. Miller Library, 100 S. Wilcox St. Sara died in 2005. But before she did, she gave Ron an assign-

ment to write a book about their life together — how adversity “doesn’t have to bring you down,” he recalled she said to him. “We’ve had so many wonderful adventures, despite the challenges and issues we’ve faced,” she told him. “People need to know that. We have to help them understand that living with those challenges doesn’t mean you have to lead a life filled with negativity. I have no doubt that you’re the best person to tell our story.” Richards — a former sportswriter who moved on to public relations and sporting-events planning for major brewing companies — now has his own communications business in the home he shares with his second wife and stepdaughter. But he also decided recently to take on writing the book, finally, which he titled, “Dodging Dandelions.” Richards, 61, called it that because of what a doctor said after Sara was first diagnosed with breast cancer and they asked the doctor about her prognosis. He told them that after finding a dandelion in a yard, you can dig it out or use chemicals, but that chances are “as time goes by, more dandelions will appear … I would be surprised if you weren’t always fighting off dandelions.” Richards said that after dating

in high school they went separate ways — he to the University of Toledo and she to Colorado State University. But they decided they didn’t want to be apart and so he eventually transferred to CSU and completed a journalism degree. They married in 1975 and had a son in 1981 and she was first diagnosed with cancer in 1983. He remembers what Sara — whom he describes as a pragmatic, exceptionally resilient person who’d been raised on a dairy farm — said after the first diagnosis of cancer. “We won’t let this ruin our lives…And we won’t let it run our lives, either. I’ll do what I have to fight it but I will not let cancer control our lives,” she told him. He said they often used humor — like calling a Friday night trip to the hospital a “date.” After she had a mastectomy, they moved to Albuquerque for work, eventually moved back to Colorado and adopted a daughter. Then Ron Richards accepted a job in Wisconsin, doing sports marketing for Miller Brewing Co. She was to join him at the end of the school year. But in 1989, more cancer, a lump in the chest area, had to be removed and then there was radiation. Then he moved on

National Western ready to roll Rodeo, livestock judging, special events come to Denver By Tom Munds

tmunds@coloradocommunitymedia. com Pro football’s biggest game is in February, but the National Western Stock Show, billed as the “Super Bowl of Livestock Shows and Sales,” comes to Denver Jan. 11-26. There are judging competitions for horses, cattle, sheep, swine, goats, llamas, bison, yaks, poultry and rabbits. Since space is fairly limited, animals are constantly moving in and out of the complex so that more than 15,000 head of livestock can take part in the judging competitions and sales In addition to the livestock judging competitions, there also are numerous livestock sales where millions of dollars change hands as thousands of animals are sold to new owners. While livestock activities go on almost constantly, the stock show’s daily schedule also may include rodeos, displays and entertainment. The fact there is something for almost everyone attracts hundreds of thousands of men, women and children through the turnstiles. Last year’s attendance was more the 628,000. The multitude of livestock judging and sales plus more than 50 special events are held at a variety of locations. While the rodeo performances are in the held in the Denver Coliseum, the majority of livestock show and sale activities plus some special events like Super Dogs are centered at the National Western Stock Show Arena and the pens in the nearby stockyards. The 16-day run of the National Western Stock Show is Colorado’s largest trade show with more than 350 vendors scheduled to be on the grounds this year.

The rider guides the horses through a ring of fire during the Wild West Show at a recent year’s National Western Stock Show. The National Western opens Jan. 11 for its 2014 run and will include livestock judging and sales, rodeos and the Wild West Show that is patterned after the shows put on by Buffalo Bill Cody. Courtesy photo Many of the vendors will be located in the three-level Hall of Education near 46th Avenue. Another venue is the Events Center and Paddock located at the north end of the National Western complex. These venues are the location for most horse show events and specialty acts like a Night of Dancing Horses and the Wild

West show. Parking if free but a general admission ticket is required to get into the stock show. The ticket entitles the holder to visit the trade show, displays, stock shows and auctions. Ticket prices vary from $13 to $19 for an. Tickets for children 3 to 11 years old

are $2 to $3, depending on the day. Children under 3 get in free. The general admission ticket also is good for visits to the Children’s Ranchland and petting farm are open daily on the third floor of the Expo Hall. In addition, there are a variety of activities at the new Ames Activity Pavilion including stick horse rodeos, kids pedal-tractor pulls, horseshoe pitching and dummy roping contests.

Local team excels at Robot Olympiad Lab, research facility possible in Douglas County By Hannah Garcia

hgarcia@coloradocommunitymedia.com After hauling away 22 awards from December’s International Robot Olympiad, the volunteers behind the Ameribotics team only have eyes for the future. “For the number of kids we brought to competition, statistically these were huge wins,” said Randy Menzer, executive director of the Douglas-County based nonprofit. “This is the first year we’ve won a gold medal.” It has been a steep climb to success, according to Menzer. The organization went from bringing six participants to competition in Jakarta, Indonesia three years ago to 32 participants and 22 medals — including four gold — this year. This was the first time the global robotics competition was held on U.S. soil, a four-day event held at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver with 13 categories, typically dominated by competitors from China and South Korea, according to organizers. Menzer started lobbying three years ago to bring the competition to North America. The competition combines elements of engineering and science, as well as artistic components with categories like “robot movie” and “robot dance.” It is thought of as the “Super Bowl of robotics,” according

to volunteer Steve Mahoney. “These kids could be working on 3D imaging at Pixar or the next group of Imagineers at Disney,” Mahoney said. Now that the Olympiad is over, Menzer said the organization has a list of priorities to tackle for the duration of 2014 and beyond, including building on a partnership with the Highlands Ranch Community Association and building a robotics lab and research facility somewhere along the I-25 corridor in Douglas County in the next five years. Menzer calls this vision a “robotics incubator,” and answer to future economic opportunities as well as a deficit in STEM education in the U.S. Menzer also mentioned the possibility of an academy for foreign students in Douglas County. “No one really connects Colorado with robotics, but there’s this opportunity to make this a kind of hub,” Menzer said. “This is about solving real-world problems, taking kids from being consumers of technology - posting on Facebook, tweeting, whatever - to the other end of the spectrum and creating that technology.” Ameribotics also plans to start hosting summer camps and workshops some time this year, working with the HRCA for use of facilities. The partnership will provide a common place for students from multiple schools, mostly from Douglas County, Menzer said. Menzer hopes to be getting ready for summer camps by the second quarter of this year.

Watch out for the flu this winter By Crystal Anderson

canderson @coloradoommunitymedia.com Colder weather brings people together, and if not careful, can cause you to walk away with a cold or the flu. “We see more cases in the winter months because in winter we’re indoors more and in closer contact,” said Arvada NextCare Doctor, David Kaplan. Throughout the holidays, parties and gatherings bring people closer together, increasing the likelihood of spreading germs and contracting illnesses. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the flu is a respiratory illness that affects nearly 200,000 Americans annually. Peaking in the winter months, January through April, the flu affects the body for 10-14 days, and it’s possible to pass the illness without knowing you have it. According to the CDC’s key facts about Influenza, a healthy adult can infect others

with the virus up to a day before showing symptoms and through seven day after becoming sick. Contracted through exposure, common flu symptoms such as, coughing, fever, runny nose, sore throat, muscle aches and feeling lethargic, can take up to four days to emerge and last through 14 days. To prevent the flu, Kaplan suggests receiving one of two vaccines available. The shot, which is made up of proteins, not the virus, cannot infect recipients, but as it reacts in the body, it can cause it to feel rundown or tired. If infected, Kaplan recommends staying home from school or work, intake plenty of fluids, and get rest. According to Kaplan, the best way to prevent the flu is to get vaccinated, whether through the shot or the nasal spray and to frequently wash the hands. “Immunization is recommended to everyone six months and older,” Kaplan said. “Getting immunized is the most important thing you can do.”

A TRIUMPHANT RETURN HOME

Arapahoe remains unbeaten with win over Mountain Vista By Jim Benton

jbenton@coloradocommunitymedia. com Brendan Till was happy to see the familiar surroundings of the Sitting Eagle gym and made sure the Arapahoe boys basketball team had a successful homecoming. Till scored a game-high 26 points, including 10 in the critical fourth quarter, as seventh-ranked Arapahoe defeated No. 5 Mountain Vista 63-55 in a Jan. 4 nonleague showdown between two unbeaten teams. It was the first time the Warriors had been in the Arapahoe gym for 23 days since the Dec. 13 shooting tragedy. “I had the flow going,” said Till. “It was good to be back ... We were playing in front of our own fans and we had a great turnout. Just being home was a big deal. It was a step back to normalcy.” Since the shooting, Arapahoe had been practicing at nearby Lifetime Fitness. “We had not been on this court since Dec. 12,” explained Warriors coach Dan Snyder. “That’s really hard. Lifetime could not have been more wonderful and gracious and we really appreciate it but it’s not the same as practicing here. We were on a court with two hoops instead of six hoops. So as far as running a practice and stations and stuff like that, you can’t do it. “I’m proud of the kids because of their resiliency. I made the comment that we’re fortunate to be practicing anywhere. So we’re not going to complain about the circumstances. … We’re really happy to be back in our own building. Regardless of the situation of the last few weeks, the energy level of this group is really good.” Down 49-48 with 4:40 to play in the game, Arapahoe outscored the Golden Eagles 15-6. The Warriors, guilty of seven turnovers in the first quarter, had just 10 the rest of the way and employed a zone defense down the stretch which seemed to baffle Mountain Vista, which came into the game scoring 85.1 points per game. “We had great energy,” said Till. “Turnovers definitely caused some problems in the first half. We crashed the boards offensively and defensively. I don’t think we had a single offensive rebound in the first

So it was aggressive intensity on both sides that won the game.” Till, a 6-foot-2 senior, scored nine of Arapahoe’s first 11 points in the fourth

quarter that started with the game tied at 44-all. He finished with a free throw to account for the Warriors’ eight-point triumph.

“He had a tremendous game,” said Snyder. “He can score in a lot of different ways. He’s really a good shooter and he sees the court really well. That allows him to go to the right spot at the right time so it’s more than just being a good shooter.” Arapahoe sank five of six free throws in the final 1:08 to stall any possible Mountain Vista comeback. The Warriors went 14 for 16 at the foul line for the game. “I was happy with how well we executed in the fourth quarter and obviously we hit some shots,” added Snyder. “The zone seemed to work. They were hurting us so bad getting to the basket against our manto-man. In the scouting we had done, they are so good in transition, they shoot a ton of layups every game.” In addition to Till, Corbin Atwell scored 16 points while James Dalrymple and Ethan Brunhofer each had eight for the Warriors. Graham Smith had 17 points and 10 rebounds to lead Mountain Vista, which committed 19 turnovers including six in the final quarter. The Golden Eagles missed five 3-point attempts in the final 35 seconds. Mountain Vista’s leading scorer Jake Pemberton had only five points with all of them coming in the first half. “Arapahoe is a good team,” said Mountain Vista coach Bob Wood. “They were aggressive on defense and we didn’t execute very well against (their zone). “Inside of four minutes if you turn the ball over five or six times, you are not going to win the game. A lot of them were forced turnovers. We were trying to force the ball where it’s not open instead of executing and getting something. ... We played poorly.” Arapahoe (7-0) opened play in the tough Centennial League Jan. 8 against Cherry Creek and travels to Smoky Hill for a game Jan. 10. “Of the top 10 teams in the rankings, five are in our league and a couple are just outside of the top 10,” pointed out Snyder. “I’ve seen all the teams in our league and I can say without a doubt this is the strongest the league has been from top to bottom since I’ve been coaching. Mountain Vista (8-1), meanwhile, played at Fountain Fort Carson Jan. 7 and hosted Montbello Jan. 8. “I guess the Arapahoe loss sends a message,” confessed Wood. “Sometimes you think that you are better than you are. Hopefully this will help us. You hope you learn from mistakes and get better. We’ve got a lot of good teams yet to play.”

Denver Broncos revenge tour starts now Remember the Ravens. I know it’s a new year and Auld Lang Syne asks us to contemplate whether “old acquaintance be forgot and never brought to mind.” But, as Broncos fans, we would be in a delusional state of denial if we were to sweep under the rug what happened to our beloved Orange and Blue around this time last year. Sorry for the buzz kill, Broncos Country, but do you remember what it felt like to see the ball that Baltimore Ravens kicker Justin Tuck booted into the frigid and rarified Denver air last January, as it sailed through the uprights at Invesco Field at Mile High? If you don’t, you were either passed out drunk or are lying. I remember it like it was yesterday: Defeated and deflated after an exhausting four-hour game, I collapsed in my couch and stared at the TV, asking myself, ‘Did that really just happen?’ When I awoke the next morning, I experienced a serene glimmer of hope that what had happened was just a bad dream. Alas, it wasn’t. The incomprehensible loss was painful

— and it was one that Broncos fans have experienced before. In 1997, the Broncos were offensively loaded and were championship material when an upstart Jacksonville Jaguars team came into Denver and shocked the world. To be sure, the Broncos have done their part to try to erase those memories. They rebounded from the Jaguars loss to win backto-back Super Bowls. And this year, Peyton Manning has broken more records than were destroyed during the 1979 Disco Demolition Night promotion in Chicago. But for rabid sports fans like me, nothing short of winning or a lobotomy can erase bad memories. And I’m not talking about regular season wins; those mean nothing. Everything that happened from September through De-

cember was just an extension of the Broncos’ preseason schedule. Only January and February matters in this town. This weekend, the Broncos welcome the San Diego Chargers to Denver, and with them arrives the hated Philip Rivers. No one outside of San Diego likes Rivers. And as adorable as his on-field 3-year-old-like temper tantrums might be to Chargers fans, we here in Denver simply loathe the guy. It would be nice to punish the Chargers for embarrassing us at home a few weeks ago. Vegas isn’t giving the Bolts much of a chance, positioning Denver as 10-point favorites. But the Broncos were laying heavy betting timber to the Ravens, as well. And just like the Ravens, the Chargers are playing well at the right time and are coming into the Mile High City on a hot streak, with nothing to lose. The Broncos — loaded with perhaps the greatest arsenal of offensive talent in league history and an aging Hall of Fame quarterback — absolutely must beat the Chargers this weekend. We cannot lose to Philip Rivers. And we cannot lose at home in the first round of the playoffs — again.

Is Denver the best team in the AFC? Yes. Is Denver the best team in football? One can make a strong argument. But the best team doesn’t always win in January. Do I think Denver will win the Super Bowl this year? Yes. But that necessarily means that we must not lose Sunday. The Broncos’ combined record this season against the other three remaining AFC playoff teams is 1-3. The Revenge Tour starts now. Remember what San Diego did to us at home a few weeks back. Remember that Philip Rivers is utterly obnoxious. Remember what it felt like to see Peyton Manning lose during his emotional return to Indianapolis this year. Remember Tom Brady. Remember being up 24-0 to the Patriots before suffering a miserable loss. But, above all: Remember the Ravens.

SALOME’S STARS FOR THE WEEK OF JAN 8, 2014

ARIES (Mar 21 to Apr 19) It’s a good time to take a much-needed break from your recent hectic schedule and spend some time in quieter surroundings. Important news could arrive early next week. TAURUS (Apr 20 to May 20) The Taurean traits of reliability and thoroughness could be well-tested when decision-makers consider your proposals and/ or requests. Be prepared to answer some probing questions. GEMINI (May 21 to Jun 20) A sudden attack of boredom leaves you with some tasks undone. It’s OK to take a short respite. But get back to work by week’s end so that you have time for other projects.

CANCER (Jun 21 to Jul 22) Avoid prejudging a situation just because it looks bad. Facts could emerge that would make your position uncomfortable, to say the least. A relative has interesting news to share with you. LEO (Jul 23 to Aug 22) This is a good time to begin reassessing some of your recent decisions about your long-range goals to see if they still have merit. Spend more time with loved ones this weekend. VIRGO (Aug 23 to Sept 22) An unsettled situation at home or on the job early in the week could drain your energy levels, making it difficult to get your work done on schedule. But things improve by midweek. LIBRA (Sept 23 to Oct 22) A temporary setback could give you time to go over your plans to find weaknesses you might have overlooked before. A romantic getaway with that special person is favored this weekend. SCORPIO (Oct 23 to Nov 21) Professional and personal situations benefit once you set a positive tone in getting things off to a good start. Honest dialogue smoothes over any occasional display of balkiness. SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 to Dec 21) A problem with workplace colleagues or family members seems to defy even your sage counsel. But be patient. Your words eventually will lead to a resolution. CAPRICORN (Dec 22 to Jan 19) Don’t just wait out that unexpected and unexplained delay in your career move. You could gain added respect if you ask why it happened and what you can do to move things along. AQUARIUS (Jan 20 to Feb 18) Although your workplace strategies usually are accepted, you could be challenged by someone who isn’t so favorably impressed. Be prepared to defend your positions. PISCES (Feb 19 to Mar 20) Your friendship circle expands, with new people coming into your life at this time. Welcome them warmly. But don’t neglect those cherished longtime personal relationships. BORN THIS WEEK: You love to search for knowledge and share it with others. You would make an especially fine teacher. © 2014 King Features Synd., Inc.

Drinking healthy in the new year Metro Creative Connection

T

ea is a popular beverage that has been enjoyed for centuries. An estimated three billion cups of tea are consumed across the globe every day, with many people looking to tea when they are sick or to prevent illness. As popular as tea has become, certain misconceptions about tea have spread over the years. The following can clear up some of the more common misunderstandings about tea. Myth: Different tea varieties come from different types of tea plants. Fact: Commercial tea comes only from the leaves of the camelia sinensis plant. Different methods of processing determine which variety of tea is produced. Black and oolong tea develops from oxidizing and fermenting tea leaves, while green tea is produced by steaming wilted leaves. Myth: Adding milk to tea negates the health

benefits. Fact: According to a study published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, the same amount of catechins, which are antioxidants associated with a reduced risk of some diseases, can be absorbed tea that contains milk as tea that does not. Myth: Anything with the name “tea� is true tea. Fact: Only tea from tea plants constitutes real tea. Herbal varieties of tea are actually tisanes made from flowers and bark of other plants. Myth: Fruits and vegetables contain more disease-fighting antioxidants than tea. Fact: Research indicates that tea has about 10 times the amount of antioxidants of vegetables and fruit. Individuals who consume reduced-calorie diets often find tea that is a good, no-calorie source of antioxidants. Myth: Antioxidants can turn back aging. Fact: Antioxidants may contribute to personal longevity, but they cannot reverse signs of aging. Antioxidants have been known to neutralize free

radicals in the body that can contribute to many different diseases, including various forms of cancer. Myth: Tea never goes bad. Fact: It may take some time for properly stored tea to spoil, but the level of antioxidants in tea does begin to diminish after a few months. Research by the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry indicates catechins in green tea decrease by 32 percent in just six months. Tea is most beneficial to human health when it is consumed within six months of its production. Myth: Tea has much less caffeine than coffee. Fact: The amount of caffeine in tea can vary. The average amount of caffeine in tea ranges from 14 to 61 mg per eight-ounce cup. Coffee, on the other hand, can contain between 27 and 200 mg per serving. Myth: Hot tea is better for you than cold tea. Fact: As long as the tea is steeped in water long enough, both hot and cold tea provide the same bang for your buck.
