Warriors aim to rise above

Arapahoe’s Class of 2014 includes Claire Davis By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@coloradocommunitymedia.com The message the Arapahoe High School Warriors Class of 2014 is sending to the community as they graduate is that they refuse to be defined by tragedy. “Needless to say, this has been a very unique experience for all of us, as we have experienced true heartbreak,” said Hannah Bailey, class vice president, during her opening remarks at the May 22 commencement ceremony at Littleton Public Schools Stadium. Instead, they want to make their mark on the world by demonstrating how they can rise above it, while carrying out the wish that Claire Davis’ parents have for all of them. “(We) sincerely hope that as you unfold and find meaning in all of this, you continue to realize kindness, compassion, forgiveness and a conscious commitment to love one another,” they wrote in a letter to the students they will now and forever be entwined with. On Dec. 13 of last year, senior Karl Pierson shot Claire and them himself. He died instantly, but Claire battled for her life for eight days before succumbing. Though her classmate cut short Claire’s life, he couldn’t take away her education, her success or her seat, saved for her between Christopher Davis and Riley Dechiro. Two of Claire’s friends accepted her diploma on behalf of the Davis family. Victor Pierce, who offered the welcoming remarks, said he has learned the things Claire’s parents hoped during his four years at AHS. “You can make a difference in someone’s life,” he said. “Here I found a second

Photo by Jennifer Smith home, a home away from home.” Catherine Roche, keynote speaker, said they will always understand each other better than anyone else, but she’ll never forget the outpouring of support they got from others, as well. “Even though we might not have ap-

preciated it at first, we are all better for your commitment to us,” said Catherine Roche. “We have come out on the other side stronger as a class, as a school and as a community.”

Although Littleton’s moratorium on retail marijuana sales doesn’t expire until October, the city council has the issue back in front of it, while the owners of CannaMart are threatening to get the issue in front of the voters. “My client’s position is that the city should adopt some sort of recreational marijuana ordinance,” said Bob Hoban, an attorney representing the medical marijuana dispensary. “But they’re working on ballot language for a citizens’ initiative.” In the fall of 2013, council heard a proposed ordinance that would have allowed the four existing dispensaries to convert to retail outlets if they wanted to. But instead, the members voted 6-1 to extend the moratorium the council had imposed shortly after voters approved Amendment 64 in 2012. The amendment made it legal for those 21 and older to possess up to an ounce of marijuana for personal use. Voicing his categorical opposition to retail sales, Councilmember Randy Stein, who represents downtown, said allowing it would run counter to council’s goal to attain a “certain level of sophistication” on Main Street. Stein’s opinion was that council was having the conversation now to let the CannaMart owners gauge the temperature of council in time to get a petition drive underway for the November ballot. Mayor Phil Cernanec firmly disagreed with that assertion. “Well, then, reasonable people disagree,” said Stein. The owners of CannaMart dispensary moved the store from Arapahoe Road and Broadway to 1080 W. Littleton Blvd. last year and planned to build out the space to conform to all state and local requirements for retail sales. Hoban said sales have plummeted to about half of the approximately $160,000 a month it made prior to the move and Amendment 64. “The revenue is being lost to other cities,” said Hoban. All seven councilmembers agreed they needed to stop kicking the can down the road with temporary bans and have an upor-down vote on whether to allow sales. “I’m not interested in putting this in front of the voters,” said Councilmember Bruce Stahlman. “I think it’s our responsibility to do something.”

Heritage’s Class of 2014 soars into future

Heritage High’s Class of 2014 caps off its graduation ceremony on May 21 at Littleton Public Schools Stadium. Photos by Jennifer Smith

Eagles’ graduation mixes fun, purpose By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@coloradocommunitymedia.com Even the weather gave the Heritage High School Class of 2014 the respect it deserves on May 21, holding back its tempest until after every last one of the 400 graduates had been called up to accept their diplomas. “When I woke up, I saw a beautiful Heritage sky,” said Principal Stacey Riendeau. “A silver sky, a scarlet sky and now we have a hint of blue.” And under that blue sky, those Eagles soared. They also batted around beach balls and an inflatable shark, reminding parents in the stands that just because

their children had reached the solemn moment of commencement didn’t mean they couldn’t still have a little fun. “We know who we are and where we have come from,” said graduate Ashlen Lemon in her commencement address. “We are Eagles. We have earned the honor and title of Eagle, and now we must start living it.” She compared their journey to that of a baby bird just starting out, taking test hops, perhaps crashing to the ground but getting back up to try again. “But now we are strong enough to face any challenge that awaits us,” she said. Superintendent Scott Murphy urged them to always give back to the world, as they’ve done with MAD Week every year. “MAD” stands for “Make a Difference,” and they do. Students raise money for continued support of the school they helped

construct in 2009, Heritage High School of Kabala, in Sierra Leone, Africa. “Do not put a limit or a number or a definition on success,” Murphy told them. “Just let success evolve. … Give back, contribute. You can make a difference, you have made a difference, and you can make amazing things happen.” Hanna Atkinson had a special note of thanks for her fellow graduates. Born with Down syndrome, she said her greatest joy has been the friends she’s made at Heritage. “We have all changed in some way,” she said. “We have all grown up. Each one of us is strong, and together we have been stronger. … I could have stayed in the shadows, but I didn’t want to be defined by my disability. I wanted to be recognized for my disability. Thank you for being accepting and kind. Thank you for being my friend.”

The Heritage High School Class of 2014 celebrated with hugs all around after the school’s May 21 graduation ceremony at Littleton Public Schools Stadium.

jsmith @coloradocommunitymedia.com Littleton High School’s graduation ceremony is known for being lively, and the Class of 2014 did not disappoint, with creative speakers taking their time to shine. “When the zombie apocalypse happens, and it’s only a matter of time, we’re all going to have to learn how to survive on our own,” said Lucas Sorensen, valedictorian. “… In the words of the terrible role model Walter White from ‘Breaking Bad,’ I am not in danger. I am danger. I am the one who knocks on the door.” Flavio Olvera, senior speaker at the May 23 ceremony, recounted the legend of the Golden Buddha, said to have been covered in clay by Tibetan monks to keep it from being looted by Burmese invaders. It was forgotten for many years until a chunk of clay fell off, revealing its true nature. “At birth we are connected to our bliss,” Olerva said. “Then we go to school. We’re taught this is how girls act, this is how boys act, this is how black people act, this is how white people act. “We’re no longer what we were born to be, we’re what society wants us to be. “But you’re not just another test score.

Heck, you’re not just another ugly face.” Even the parents got in on the action, hooting and hollering and blowing air horns when their respective kids got to the podium. They then got the biggest laugh of the day when Superintendent Scott Murphy thanked them for supporting their children’s journey through high school. “Thanks to your parents, who are also entering a new stage of their life,” he said. “YES!” was the lone but resounding response from the stands. There were the serious moments, too, of course. Jennifer Russ, salutatorian, re-

called the three little pops in her knee that brought her down on the athletic field. “I was disappointed, scared and openly heartbroken,” she said. “But I’ll get through it, because I’ll never be alone. I was on a team. My teammates picked me up from the field that day and they haven’t put me down since.” Meredith Maney spoke of finding happiness in the little things, like a nickname, not just in bit things like a “promposal.” “Because happiness is the small moments,” she said. “… It’s in the realization that you’ll miss something about how life was, how it is, at Littleton.”

Food is foundation of bridge to future As a family approaches the stand, Monse Hines smiles and offers: “Do you want a sample?” “No,” Greg Elliott says. “We know it’s good.” He looks at his wife. “Two zucchini, two hots?” He glances at the small container on the table. “And a thing of this stuff.” “OK,” Monse says. “Thirteen dollars.” “Oh,” Greg says. “Give us one more of each.” The “each” is a pupusa, a traditional El Salvadoran food the size of a small tortilla made of corn masa filled with various ingredients — in this case, beans or zucchini, corn chile poblano and mozzarella or the “hot” mirasol roasted peppers. The “stuff” is curtido, a pickled cabbage slaw, also from El Salvador. “We tried them last summer,” Greg says, “and we really got hooked on them.” And, adds his wife, Danielle, there’s Monse (pronounced Mohn-seh). “She’s very sweet.” Monse Hines is sweet. She is small with earnest brown eyes and long, brown hair casually pulled into a ponytail. She wears faded jeans with a blush pink blouse and a silver necklace with a medallion of Mary, Joseph and the baby Jesus. Her nails are bluntly cut, no polish. Her smile is friendly and easy, like the conversation with her customers, many of them regulars at this farmers’ market. But don’t be fooled. Monse Hines, 34, is bold and brave, too — so much so that she made her entrepreneurial dream come true, one small, risky step at a time. And she did it despite being a newcomer to this country, this language, this culture.

Florence Crittenton Services

In a few short years, she has built a business that could be her family’s future. In the process, she has firmly cemented the roots of her El Salvadoran home into the foundation of her new one — adding yet another cultural ingredient to the melting-pot land we live in. “I think we all have the ability to come out ahead,” she says, intently, in Spanish. “Solo se necesita un sueño.” All you need is a dream. Flavored with heaps of determination. “No existe la suerte,” she says. “Cada quien se hace la suerte.” Luck doesn’t exist. Each person makes his own luck. Monse should know. She was born in a Salvadoran town so small it doesn’t have a stoplight and there are few cars, anyway. Her parents taught in a high school in a nearby city, about half the size of Colorado Springs, where she lives now with her Army husband and two daughters. She met her husband in Germany, where she had traveled for a yearlong exchange program while in college. She wanted to learn German, so she sold her car and just about everything she owned to finance the trip. Friends took her to an Oktoberfest, and while she was dancing, Timothy Hines, stationed at a nearby Army base, began talking to her in English. “I asked him why he was talking to me in English — we are in Germany,” Monse remembers, with a smile. Three months later, they flew home to his family in

Texas and married on Thanksgiving Day. They celebrate their 10th anniversary this year. It was in 2011 — Tim was deployed for a year in Afghanistan — that Monse’s dream emerged. Her sister took her to a Whole Foods. She recalls the wonder. “Everything was so pretty,” she says. “There, my vision started — a healthy product in this supermarket.” After deciding that her pupusas and curtido would be gluten-free and use only organic and non-genetically modified ingredients, she began researching on the Internet: How to get a license to sell a food product. How to make a label. How to package according to health department regulations. Who had the best prices. Everything had to be bought in small quantities because there was little money to invest — she and Tim had decided they would not take out loans. Each month, Monse would decide how much she could afford to spend. Maybe $100 one month. She needed a Web page? Maybe $10 more another month for that. Neighbors and family helped her navigate the English language and fill out paperwork. Her mother-inlaw designed her label. “We all have these angels who help us,” Monse says. Then she won an audience at a Whole Foods in Colorado Springs. And, in June 2012, her curtido, under the name Monse’s Taste of El Salvador, first appeared on the store’s shelves. The pupusas followed two months later. “No sé como explicarlo,” she says. I don’t know how to explain it. “To know that a company so big wants your products — it’s like being in a dreamland.” Tim got home in time to make the first delivery. He was thrilled. “She decided `I’m going to do this’ and she did,” he says. “I was proud to come home and share this thing that was hers.” He describes how, for Monse, food from her country was a way to introduce herself to families in the places they lived. “She would make something from El Salvador and nobody else would have it and it was something she could share.” As a business, it does the same, opening a door between cultures. The niche “is hers and she can claim it — `This is how my mom and my grandma made it and I’ll use your ingredients to make something from my home,’” Tim says. “I think it’s really cool.” These days, Monse has one employee to help her make about 7,000 pupusas a week. They work from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. out of a commercial kitchen space that is shared with five other entrepreneurs. “We divide the cost so we can all survive,” Monse says. And she buys her produce from Pueblo and Colorado Springs farmers, so that the circle of local enterprise is complete. Her products can be found in Whole Foods in Colorado Springs, Highlands Ranch, Southglenn and Belmar, Healey continues on Page 5

and soon in a Natural Grocers in Colorado Springs. The University of Colorado in Boulder buys about 4,000 pupusas a week to sell in its cafeterias. “I can’t believe that this has happened to me,” Monse says. “I am grateful to God and to the support from this country. As a woman, too, I feel as if I’ve been able to better myself, that there are no barriers.” The Army has relocated Tim to Oklahoma for three years, starting in midJuly. But they have decided Monse and the girls will remain here. They will travel back and forth to see each other. The business, they hope, will be their work after Tim retires. “We have to make the sacrifice,” Monse says. “Si Dios quiere” — if God

wills it, “the business can give us a better future for our daughters.” A customer approaches Monse’s stand at a recent farmers’ market in Highlands Ranch. “Can I try one?” the woman asks. “Which one is this?” “Black bean,” Monse says, as she slices the pupusa that has been heating on the pan and tops it with a spoonful of curtido. “Excellent,” the woman says, after a bite. “You’re here every week?” One more sale. One more convert. One more step toward a future built on a taste of the past. Ann Macari Healey’s column about people, places and issues of everyday life appears every other week.

“Serving up Strategy: Learn Supply Chain through the Beer Game.” WhippleWood CPAs Conference Center at the Chamber 2154 E. Commons Ave., Suite 342, Centennial, CO

Friday, May 30: On May 13, almost 100 businesspeople attended a Business After Hours at the Project C.U.R.E. (Commission on Urgent Relief and Equipment) headquarters in Centennial, CO. This event featured three guided tours of the facility by the organization’s CEO and directors of government affairs and operations. The tours gave participants insight into the overall vision of the organization, while providing a closer look into the facility’s operations. “I enjoyed attending the networking event hosted by Project C.U.R.E. and the South Metro Chamber. It’s an incredible feeling to be inside a warehouse full of items we would typically throw in the garbage, but instead, these items are saving lives and healing people. They may not be in our community, but kindness knows no boundaries, thanks to Project C.U.R.E.,” said attendee Angel Tuccy, co-host of the Experience Pros Radio Show on AM 560 KLZ.

Project C.U.R.E.’s mission is to identify, solicit, collect, sort, and distribute medical supplies and services according to the imperative needs of the world. Volcano Asian Cuisine, a sushi and hibachi restaurant in Centennial, provided delicious appetizers for the group. “We were honored to be chosen to host the Chamber’s Business After Hours and share the mission and vision of Project C.U.R.E. with business leaders of South Metro,” said Jan Mazotti, director of communications, marketing and PR. Dr. Douglas Jackson, the organization’s president/CEO, spoke to the group, outlining the great impact the organization has around the world. Each week they deliver approximately three semi-truck loads of donated medical supplies and equipment to desperately needy people around the world. Since 1987, they have delivered equipment and supplies to hospitals and clinics in over 130 countries.

Project C.U.R.E. is consistently recognized with the highest Four Star ranking from Charity Navigator, and was named by Forbes as one of the top 200 charities in America. “We are delighted to continue our partnership with Project C.U.R.E., bringing together our business leaders with a national leader in philanthropy,” said Marcia McGilley, interim CEO of the South Metro Denver Chamber. A team of South Metro Denver Chamber members continues to volunteer monthly at Project C.U.R.E.’s warehouse, sorting medical supplies for export.

opinions / yours and ours

Wildfire reports sound a call to action With the recent rain and hail that pounded much of the Front Range, bringing flooding to some areas, wildfires may not seem like an imminent threat. But trends tell us otherwise. It’s not a matter of if, but when. Earlier this spring, the Colorado Division of Fire Prevention and Control released some chilling information in a special report to the governor and General Assembly. The report focused on strategies to enhance the state’s aerial firefighting capabilities. In making its case for that, the report stated that since the 1990s, “the number, intensity, and complexity of wildfires in Colorado have been growing exponentially, and experts predict that it will continue to worsen.” The length of the wildfire season is growing, too, the report said.

our view “In general, Colorado sees short periods of increased fire occurrence throughout the year with just a few of the fires reaching a significant size or complexity. However, the drought conditions and fire activity experienced throughout 2012 — one of the worst wildfire seasons in state history — may be representative of a new normal. Experts warn that drought and the other causal factors could result in repeats of 2012 with widespread fire activity and extended, year-long wildfire seasons.” In recent months, several reports have

blamed wildfire trends like this across the West on global warming, perhaps further evidence of a “new normal.” Given the bigger picture, it’s difficult for us to find solace in the mid-May prediction by state experts of a “normal” 2014 wildfire season. Even a pre-2012 “normal” means an average year in Colorado would see thousands of fires, with 30 of them being large, destructive blazes. But if 2012 — when 260,000 acres in the state were scorched, more than 600 structures destroyed and six people killed — is a sign of things to come, that’s truly alarming. To their credit, state legislators and Gov. John Hickenlooper took action this past session. On May 12, Hickenlooper signed into law a bill creating the state’s first aerial firefighting fleet. The legislation, which comes with a $21 million price tag,

creates a fleet of four planes — two leased and two owned by the state — and four leased helicopters and designates money for a center to study high-tech firefighting tactics. The primary goal, as outlined in the division of fire prevention’s report, is to keep fires small. If the fleet can help cut down on an average year’s $42 million in fire-suppression-expenses, while saving lives, acres and property, it will be money well spent. One thing is for certain when it comes to wildfires in Colorado: Inaction is not an option. With the ominous reports that have surfaced, lawmakers here and in other Western states would be wise to read and react for years to come.

Newest may not be the greatest

Movies shouldn’t feel like being assaulted “Badges? We ain’t got no badges. I don’t have to show you any stinking badges.” Name it and claim it. Alfonso Badoya. He was “Gold Hat” in a great film. Answer at the end. I make frequent references to films in my columns. I was almost a theater arts major, and if I had been I would have been on track to be a director. My school’s theater arts program has graduated some well-known directors and actors and actresses and others associated with the industry. Ultimately, I wanted to make individual pictures, not reels of them. There was another roadblock: people. Have you ever watched the credits? It takes 10 minutes. Hundreds of people are involved. I am not good with or around people. I no longer go to theaters. I watch films here at home. Very few of them are recent. I don’t like gun work. The f-word is used as if it is a throwaway. A gimme. Five hundred and six times in “The Wolf of Wall Street.” Come on. Aren’t there other words? For anger, anxiety, disapproval, description? It’s funny how we seem to seek the action, and give it a bad connotation. I watch documentaries. I watch films that aren’t blockbusters. Blockbusters are for someone else. I love cinema too much to watch a blockbuster. Action films are not welcome. I read the newspaper, I don’t need to pay to see the kind of crap that people do to people. Give me a Benjamin, free tickets to a Quentin Tarantino? No thanks. I didn’t see a single film that was nominated for an Academy Award. A good pal is married to a Disney executive, and he has home access to all of the nominated films every year. She said, “You missed out on some good movies last year.” I am sure I did. I just don’t want to watch people killing each other. But you do. “Captain America Something” is No. 1 right now. I guess some people go to movies to disconnect from the real world. But this garbage

is the real world. How can someone read about Claire Davis and still go to Tarantino? Cry all you want and light all of the candles you want to light. Subscribe to “Memorial Stuffed Animals.” And then pay to see someone be killed. We escape in the film. From what? The things we escape from are right there in the movies you pay to see. Something is wrong (with you). If you don’t want to be scolded, read someone else. Tarantino is a complete idiot. Tarantino is a complete genius, because he knows his audience is Jerry-Jerry-Jerry morons. I get angry. Don’t I? Why would anyone go to see “The Dark Knight Rises” in the first place? At midnight. With your children. You are what you eat, and if you eat the kind of movies that you are fed, you must not cry. It’s called duplicity. Do you care about the Nigerian schoolgirls? Women on buses in India? Have you done your reading about Chicago lately? And then you and the girl go to see “Captain America.” I am probably alienating some of my audience. Good. It’s not dachshunds and Jennifer every week. Try. Try watching something good. “Amelie.” Cocteau’s “Beauty and the Beast.” “Bully.” “Five Easy Pieces.” I know it’s hopeless. You look forward to the Super Bowl halftime, and think it’s worthwhile. It is the opposite. “Treasure of the Sierra Madre.” Craig Marshall Smith is an artist, educator and Highlands Ranch resident.

With so much content and so many authors and experts who write about the trends in the field of personal and professional development, sales training, leadership and customer service, I am often asked by customers for the latest and greatest material in these areas. They are looking for that something new or a silver bullet, some magic dust or cure-all pill to fix their problems, their people, or in some cases, themselves. Now don’t get me wrong, I am a huge advocate of growth and I am all for continuing education whether that comes in the form of reading, listening, watching, participating in seminars, or cloud learning through socialization of ideas, or any other medium, for that matter, that takes us and/or our teams to a higher level. Any attempt at upping our game in anything we do or endeavor to do is to be applauded. And when I am asked for specific advice or recommendation for a good book or program to attend, I love to share thoughts and ideas as well as happily recommend something provocative that I have recently read or participated in. But my favorite thing to do is remind people that it is not necessarily “what’s new” that works … it’s really all about “what works” that works. Sometimes the latest and greatest writings or advice is adopted quickly as a trend or fad, but soon meld into some remnant of a concept or philosophy that was written and practiced long ago. I still

Local veterans: Never forget Memorial Day isn’t just another day off By Jennifer Smith

jsmith @coloradocommunitymedia.com It’s not just about the barbecues. That was the message local veterans really wanted visitors to Littleton’s World War II Memorial on May 26 to hear. “Memorial Day is solely for those who died serving in uniform,” said Jack Woodman, commander of the Veterans of Foreign Wars Pat Hannon Post No. 4666. Those people include U.S. Navy Seal Danny Dietz, who graduated from Heritage High School in 1999. Six years later, the Navy Seal and two of his comrades died on a mountaintop in Afghanistan in a gunbattle against Taliban

fighters. The only survivor, Marcus Luttrell, recounts in his book, “Lone Survivor,” the staggering bravery Dietz and the others displayed, never giving up until their last breaths despite being mortally wounded. A movie based on the book was released last Christmas. The portion of South Santa Fe Drive that runs through Littleton is named for Dietz, and a statue memorializes him in Berry Park. Pat Hannon, for whom Littleton’s VFW post is named, is another brave Littletonite, the first to die in World War II. A graduate of St. Mary Catholic School, Hannon was a proud member of India Company, 3rd Battalion, 9th Marines, 3rd Marine Division. The rifleman was gunned down in Quang Nam Province on Sept. 3, 1966, exactly a month before he would have turned 20. He drew his last breath the next day.

It is tradition during the Littleton ceremony to read the poem Hannon wrote shortly before his death. It reads, in part: “If my time is here to be, I ask a favor from you to me. Answer my one and only plea, keep America free.” Another proud VFW tradition is selling “Buddy Poppies” to support disabled and needy veterans, and children and spouses who lost their loved ones to war. The poppies symbolize Flanders Fields in Belgium, a World War I battlefield where thousands died. Today it’s a memorial populated by thousands of poppies, a symbol of fallen soldiers. It was named for a poem by Lt. Col. John McCrae of the Canadian Army. “If ye break faith with us who die, we shall not sleep, though poppies grow in Flanders Fields,” he wrote. Pietsch implored those at the ceremony to keep sharing stories of such heroes with their chil-

Photo by Tom Munds dren, with their grandchildren, so that they might know the sacrifices made by the more than 100 million who have died on the battlefield throughout America’s history. “They didn’t go to war because

they loved fighting,” said Ed Pietsch, commander of the American Legion Post 103. “They felt called to be part of something larger than themselves. … We must always remember that freedom is not free.”

Toll Brothers decides against purchase of Wild Plum Farm By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@coloradocommunitymedia.com The horses roaming the 105-acre Wild Plum Farm property on the south end of Columbine Valley don’t have to pack up their bedrolls just yet, as Toll Brothers’ plan to build homes there seems to have come to a screeching halt. On May 22, Toll Brothers representatives informed town officials that they will not be proceeding with the purchase of the property.

She told her classmates that while they’ve had a lot of success academically and athletically, their biggest accomplishment was overcoming their fear and reclaiming their school. “I’m excited to get out in the world and show what it means to be a Warrior and what it means to be Warrior Strong,” she said. Principal Natalie Pramenko hit some of the high points of what exactly it does mean: Members of the Class of 2014 were awarded $18 million in scholarships, and they sat for 844 advanced-placement exams. Their dropout rate is less than 1 percent, and they raised more than $12,000 for charity during Warrior Week. A dozen of them are headed into the military. “You showed unwavering leadership

I say this with confidence because it really isn’t about the equipment, it’s about the player, the talent, the work ethic, and the practice. With a focused approach on effort, practice, and the fundamentals we can all excel in anything we strive for in our personal life, our business, or in our

“Toll Brothers had conducted a number of community meetings to assess the concerns and comments of the residents of the town and were eager to continue working with the community, town staff, planning commission and board of trustees,” reads a statement from JD McCrumb, town manager. “However, while in the process of due diligence, decided that based on the potential costs that could be incurred with their development, decided not to enter into the contract.” “Due diligence” refers to the period of

cide on their own whether to allow retail sales, so banning them would still conform. “We have the opportunity, but certainly not the obligation, to extend retail marijuana licenses on a community-by-community basis,” said Stahlman. While their decision to make a decision was unanimous, their decision on the ordinance is less likely to be so. Staff will bring them a proposed ordinance in the coming weeks, and there will be a public hearing before their final vote.

during this very challenging semester,” Pramenko said. “You have shown us all what it really means to be Warrior Strong. You are special, and I will never, ever forget you.” She introduced Mark Soldier Wolf, the only living elder to have helped cement the school’s relationship in 1993 with his Arapaho tribe on the Wind River Indian Reservation in Wyoming. The elders decided AHS was a place deserving of their respect and endorsed the school’s “Arapahoe Warrior” mascot, which was designed by Arapaho artist Wilbur Antelope. “I’m so deeply proud of you, because I know the challenges that you’ve faced, and I’m willing to stand on your behalf wherever you go,” he told the graduates. Roche gave voice to the hardest lesson the Class of 2014 had to learn. “If I’ve learned anything this year, it’s that life is short and opportunities are fleeting, so we have to seize them while we can,” said Roche.

recreational activities. So even with all the technology and gadgetry available to us, it really isn’t about “what’s new” that works, it is about finding “what works” that works. How about you, do you focus on effort and practice, or do you look for the newest or latest and greatest equipment to up your game? Either way I would love to hear all about it at gotonorton@gmail. com. And I do believe that when our efforts and practice outpace our search for the next new thing, it really will be a better than good week.

time in which a potential developer assesses the economics of a possible project before making a decision as to whether to enter into a binding contract with the landowner. Toll Brothers never even got to the point of submitting a site plan to the town, so it’s unknown exactly what would have developed if they had gone forward. The land is currently zoned for agricultural use. The town’s master plan recommends no more than one dwelling per acre be built there, though that doesn’t translate to one-

acre lots. JD McCrumb said during a January public meeting that the substantial flood plain that exists and open-space requirements don’t count against the units per acre, they just shift where the homes will be. He reminded the audience that the master plan is a guideline, not a law, and the board of trustees can approve higher density if any project is considered superior, as was the case with Willowcroft.

LIFT is raising some eyebrows Search for ‘blight’ brings angry words By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@coloradocommunitymedia.com Blight. What does it look like? A falling-down shopping center, or a rambling 1913 estate? A brand-new car lot, or a 1970s-era apartment building? A study by the city’s new consultant on urban renewal says all of the above, to some degree. “‘Blight’ is a horrible word. We hate it,” Anne Ricker, a principal with the consulting firm Ricker/Cunningham, told a room full of people who attended the Littleton Invests for Tomorrow board meeting at Bemis Library on May 22. “But it’s a legal word. We don’t hide behind it. We hate it with you, but it’s a legal term.” Of course, “hate” is a strong word. But it seems mild among other words tossed out that night from citizens who are not fans of the city’s new focus on redevelopment. They used words like “outraged,” “perverse,” “sham,” “overreaching,” “embarrassed,” “disgusted,” “tragedy,” “risk” and “mistrust.” “Over the last 10 years or so, I have developed a mistrust of a lot of things that have happened in this city,” said Teresa Tucker, who owns property in one of the four areas under study for possible urban renewal. LIFT, the city’s urban-renewal authority, has hired Ricker/Cunningham to examine redevelopment possibilities in Littleton. Ricker looked at four areas: The Santa Fe corridor from Prince Street to just south of Mineral Avenue; the Broadway corridor from north of Powers Avenue to south of Littleton Boulevard; the Columbine Square area along Bel-

leview Avenue, including the shopping areas on both the east and west sides of Federal Boulevard; and the Littleton Boulevard corridor from Windermere Street to Bannock Street. The affected property owners have all been notified and invited to a series of informational meetings, said Ricker. Dr. Charlie Vail, who is an owner of the Littleton Equine Medical Center, is one of them. His clinic is housed in the stately white 1913 mansion at 8025 S. Santa Fe Drive. “So far, at the open house and at this meeting, there have been more questions raised than answers,” he said. Ricker stressed that just because a property is in the study area doesn’t mean it’s blighted, but its surrounding infrastructure might be. A lot of citizens worry about the fact that urban renewal sometimes involves eminent domain, or a forceful taking of property, which council approved the use of when it adopted its economic plan last year. Pam Nies, for example, is outraged about Vail’s clinic being included in the plan area. “It’s a perverse use of a statute of law and a sham,” she said. “It’s the last remaining truly pristine unblighted area, untouched by development in Littleton.” Ricker noted that Nies does not own property in the plan areas, and that there were only five people who do in attendance. Nies countered that she’s a taxpayer with every right to be concerned, but Nies stressed that urban renewal does not raise taxes, and that everything LIFT does has to be given final approval by city council. LIFT will give the plan areas’ boundaries their go-ahead — or not — on June 16. If council approves them, Ricker’s next task is to recommend subareas within those boundaries that could benefit from urban renewal and the financing mechanisms that come with it.

LIFT, URA — what does it all mean? Alphabet soup equals changes on horizon for city By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@coloradocommunitymedia.com Previously known as the Riverfront Authority, Littleton Invests for Tomorrow is the city’s urban-renewal authority, or URA. It was originally named for the single metropolitan district it was created to manage. It was formed as a financing mechanism to get the building that is now Echostar, on the southwest corner of Bowles Avenue and Santa Fe Drive, built in 1985. It was originally a shopping mall called the Riverfront Festival Center. But the timing was bad, and the major recession of the early 1980s led to the mall’s demise in 1989. The original bonds were paid off, and the authority could have simply disbanded. Instead, it changed its name to Littleton Invests for Tomorrow, with the stated goal of redevelopment, revitalization and renewal of areas within the city. LIFT has a budget of $142,000 for 2014, most of which will be spent on consulting services. It also hired an executive director, Jim Rees, who has 15 years’ experience in the field and comes most recently from

the Colorado Springs URA. Additionally, the members approved a contract with the consulting firm Ricker/Cunningham, which is in the process of identifying areas that could benefit from redevelopment. LIFT’s longtime president is former city councilmember Jim Taylor, and most of the other LIFT members have been on council or the city’s planning board at one time or another. State statute lays out strict guidelines for when a URA can declare blight. It defines a “blighted area” as one that “substantially impairs or arrests the sound growth of the municipality, retards the provision of housing accommodations, or constitutes an economic or social liability, and is a menace to the public health, safety, morals, or welfare.” It goes on to list 11 criteria to use as a basis for determining blight, of which the property must meet four. They include things like deterioration, unsafe or unsanitary conditions, environmental contamination and unusual topography. All four of the Littleton study areas met at least 10 criteria, according to Anne Ricker, a principal at Ricker/Cunningham. If an owner wants property declared blighted as a way to get financial help righting whatever is wrong with the site, just one of the criteria needs to be met.

SPWG explores development on river Trail improvements, benches, amphitheater considered By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@coloradocommunitymedia.com The South Platte Working Group is hoping its first public-private partnership will offer a boost to Riverside Downs shopping complex, on Belleview Avenue just west of Santa Fe Drive, and beautify the entire area. “We’re looking at how to start to create this new environment by the river,” said Councilmember Debbie Brinkman, Littleton City Council’s representative on SPWG. Council on May 20 unanimously approved dedicated open-space funds to complete a study that would define how to better tie the center into the Mary Carter Greenway and the South Platte River, widely regarded as underutilized assets in Littleton — something the SPWG has been working to change. “(Our goal) is to embrace many types of adjacent land uses and recognize that the community’s historic relationship to the Platte River is part of the history of this river and part of richness of the visitor’s experience,” reads the 56-page report the group released in March. “The diversity of experience and expression of the community’s evolving relationship with the Platte River

is to be celebrated, not homogenized.” Convened in 2006 by Arapahoe County, SPWG is made up of 21 local jurisdictions and agencies that have contributed more than $25 million for projects so far. Members hope the county will agree to partner with Littleton to work on the public land that lies south of Riverside Downs, which would pay for improvements on its own property. “We want to bring walkers, bike riders and shoppers together and give them safe places to go,” said Brinkman. A concept by OHM Design depicts a small amphitheater facing the river on the south end of the shopping complex. Footpaths would lead from there to the river, and the area between might have shade structures, bocce ball, stone benches, public art and a cobble beach where people could dangle their toes in the water. Brinkman noted it’s already a common sight to see people parking in the lot and heading out for a walk or bike ride from there. “People want to access the trail,” said Brinkman. “We already know we don’t have enough trailheads, and now people are starting to create their own.” Access to Belleview Avenue would be improved, and a gateway feature would be added there, said Brinkman. If all goes well, construction could start next fall.

School funding measures signed into law Hundreds of millions of dollars to fund programs, construction By Vic Vela

vvela@coloradocommunitymedia.com In front of a group of school children who are just starting to grasp basic arithmetic, Gov. John Hickenlooper on May 21 signed into law a pair of complex, multimillion dollar school finance measures. The new laws will allow a state school finance system that was significantly strained by recession-era budget cuts to grow by nearly $500 million. The cash infusion will fund several areas of K-12 resources, including school construction and preschool, kindergarten and English language learner programs. “We’re trying to make sure that each one of you guys gets every single advantage, every single chance, because your success is the fu-

ture of this state,” Hickenlooper said during a bill signing that was held inside Aurora’s Ponderosa Elementary School. A major K-12 funding piece comes from the Student Success Act. The legislation provides $20 million for programs that target children who are struggling to read and $53 million for school construction, with $40 million of that going toward construction in rural areas — the latter funding coming from Amendment 64-backed retail marijuana revenue. An additional $3 million will go toward financial transparency efforts that are aimed at allowing taxpayers to see how the new money is being reported and spent. The funding includes a $110 million buy down of the so-called “negative factor” — recession-era funding cuts that slashed about $1 billion from the state’s K-12 budget.

million for English language learner programs and funds an additional 5,000 seats in preschool and kindergarten classrooms. “This bill that the governor is about to sign will authorize 5,000 more kids next year going to publicly-funded, quality preschool programs than what was possible the year before,” said Sen. Pat Steadman, D-Denver, a bill sponsor. Additionally, per-pupil funding for next school year will jump 5 percent to $7,021. “That’s almost $400 for every one of you students,” Sen. Mike Johnston, D-Denver, told the children in the audience. “So imagine if you came through the doors this morning and we handed $400 to each one of you. It would be pretty good stuff.” The funding efforts that the Legislature passed this year were a response to last year’s failed Amendment 66 ballot measure, which sought to bolster school funding through tax increases.

No Republican lawmakers were present for the signing ceremony. However, the Student Success Act was co-sponsored by Rep. Carole Murray, R-Castle Rock, and both bills received bipartisan support at the Capitol. Republicans who expressed concerns about the funding measures during the legislative process argued that the efforts do not go far enough in replacing “negative factor” dollars. GOP lawmakers also wanted school districts to have more control over how the money is spent, without state strings attached. But Democratic lawmakers who attended the bill signing told students that they’re going to be in a better position to succeed because of the new funding. “People worked really hard to cause us to fund education at a higher level; to be able to restore some of the money that was missing; to be able to cause you to have a better opportunity to be successful,” said Rep. John Buckner, D-Aurora.

scene, I think gosh, I’d like to be retired. But on the other side of the coin, this is the best job I’ve ever had.” Dobersen has been a rarity among county coroners, having earned his medical degree from the University of Miami (Ohio). Because he’s a licensed medical pathologist, term limits didn’t apply to him in Arapahoe County. He ran five successful campaigns, although he switched his party affiliation back to Democrat in 2006. Dobersen asked the Arapahoe County Board of Commissioners to appoint his second in command, Dr. Kelly Lear-Kaul, to serve out the remainder of his term. Sheriff Dave Walcher also endorsed her, and they did so on May 21. Nancy Doty, board chair, said Lear-Kaul is well qualified to serve, being a certified forensic pathologist. “She is well respected in the coroner’s office, in Arapahoe County and within the

Money will help music go mobile In celebration of its 35th anniversary, Swallow Hill Music in south Denver is delivering more music to more people in more places. And its latest effort to expand its music community comes with wheels. A donor recently gave Swallow Hill Music a 1976 Silver Streak motor home, to be turned into a mobile music community. But, the ol’ girl needs a little TLC. A crowd-funding campaign with a goal of raising $10,000 launches today to help the Swallow Hill Music mobile home hit the road. Contributions made over the next few weeks will get the Silver Steak running smoothly, add signage and give her an overall buff and shine. Once she’s up and running, she’ll turn into a mobile music community, providing Instrument Petting Zoos, impromptu performances and musical experiences throughout Denver. Taking Swallow Hill Music on the road will boost Denver’s access to music education by transporting instruments and musical experiences throughout the metro area, meeting people where they live and enriching their lives through music.

Concert recalls Englewood art-lover Wolosyn remembered as ‘always in motion’ By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@coloradocommunitymedia.com A kinetic sculpture called “Duo” stands near the Englewood Civic Center, dedicated to the late, beloved Englewood Mayor Olga Wolosyn. Like the ever-moving sculpture, Olga was “always in motion,” said conductor Eric Bertoluzzi at the beginning of the annual Wolosyn Memorial Concert, “Shuffle,” held May 17 in Hampden Hall. A professional potter, Wolosyn was involved with the beginnings of the Englewood Arts Presents concerts and the city’s efforts to strengthen music and visual arts in the schools. Bertoluzzi, a retired Colorado Symphony Orchestra cellist, was right there beside her through the startup years, and he keeps mu-

sic programs in motion now. The Up Close and Musical Ensemble, which performed the May 17 concert, has a rotating membership of about 14 musicians per performance, drawn from a pool of Colorado Symphony Orchestra members and other professional musicians in the area. They primarily perform in elementary schools, presenting informal programs for children who may not have experienced classical music. This is the 26th year for Up Close and Musical, and they have visited 38 schools and given more than 130 concerts for students during the past school year. They hope to encourage kids to learn to play an instrument and enjoy making music with others. Artists who performed on May 17 were: Concertmaster Erik Peterson; violins 1: Boram Kang, Anne-Marie Hoffman, Dorian Kincaid and Felix Petit; violins II: Allegra Wermuth, Cynthia Mancinelli, Robyn Julyan and Philip Ficsor; violas: Catherine Beeson,

Philip Stevens, Anne Ainomae and Summer Rhodes; cellos: Danielle Guideri, Gal Faganel and Beth Rosbach; bass: Mary Reed. The group performed music by Mozart, Grieg, Hindemith, Gershwin, Bartok and a young Texas composer, Jonathan Geer (born in 1980), whose “Tango Suite for String Orchestra,” modeled after tangos by Argentine composer Astor Piazzolla, brought a Latin beat to the concert hall. Geer performs on piano with the Austin Piazzolla Quintet, which is scheduled to appear in Englewood on April 10, 2015, in the Friday Evening Starlight Rhythms concert series, which offers a mix of jazz, bluegrass, gospel, world and folk music. Englewood Arts Presents also has scheduled nine more Chamber Music of the Masters concerts on Saturdays for the 2014-2015 season, starting on Oct. 4. For information, see the Englewood Arts Presents website at englewoodarts.org/concert-series/englewood-arts-presents/.

Each year in May, the Denver Public Library celebrates young poets, artists and writers who have entered a pair of competitions held by Colorado Humanities and Colorado Center for the Book. On May 16, students, families and teachers from across the state gathered to recognize this year’s winners, which included several from Littleton and Centennial. “River of Words” is a poetry and art competition for grades K-12 focused on the theme of watersheds and the environment. According to the Colorado Humanities website at coloradohumanities.org, it is “designed to help youth explore the natural and cultural history of the place they live and to express what they discover in poetry and visual art.” Winners receive prizes from local businesses and are published in the Colorado Foundation for Water Education publication, “Headwaters.” Entry for students is free and there is a free curriculum for teachers. (Deadline is December of each year.) Award winners were selected by artist Rik Sargent (of Centennial), state Supreme

Court Justice Gregory Hobbs, and master poet Jim Ciletti. “Letters about Literature” involves students writing to a favorite author, explaining why that person’s book held a special meaning for the student. Authors Kathleen T. Pelley, Caroline Stutson (of Littleton), Nancy Oswald, Todd Tuell, Carol Sue Shride and Teague Bohlen selected the winner. Maya Hunter of Centennial won in River of Words, grades 3-5, for her poem, “Allow Me To Introduce Myself,” plus a third place for her photograph, “First Frost.” Maya, who entered independently, is a fifth-grader at Walnut Hills Elementary. A national finalist last year, she began writing poetry at age 6 and “has an eye that sees things in a different way,” said her mother, Michelle Anthony. Maya looks forward to attending Campus Middle School next year. Also listed as 2014 winners in Letters About Literature: second place grades 4-6, Sara Mazur, Littleton, fifth grade, Coronado Elementary School, Deb Marshall, teacher; first place grades 7-8, Garrison Niemann, Littleton, sixth grade, Rocky Heights Middle School, Judi Holst, teacher; third place grades 7-8, Bailee Stones, Littleton, Rocky Heights Middle School, Judi Holst, teacher; first place grades 9-12, Kristina Hagman, Littleton, Heritage High School, senior. Information about this literary event is found on the Colorado Humanities and Colorado Center for the Book website at coloradohumanities.org/node/50.

Player of the year: ‘Tate the Great’ Arapahoe sophomore may forego junior season to focus on national game By Jim Benton

jbenton@coloradocommunitymedia.com Arapahoe’s team lined up for a picture after the girls state tennis tournament at the Gates Tennis and held up a sign that proclaimed ‘Tate the Great.’ Tate is Tate Schroeder. She is the Arapahoe sophomore who won the Class 5A No. 1 singles championship on May 10 with a 6-4, 6-3 victory over Loveland’s defending state champion Rebecca Weissmann. Schroeder’s friend Caroline Carman made the sign that the Warriors displayed in their post-tournament team photo. “I didn’t know she was going to make the sign,” confessed Schroeder. “She came to watch my match. She made a couple signs. They were double-sided. On one said it said ‘Tate the Great’ and on the other side it said ‘Tate for State.’ I just loved it.” Schroeder, who has been nothing short of great, has been named the Colorado Community Media South Metro Girls Tennis Player of the Year. Warriors coach Andrzej Sosnowski wasn’t surprised by the honor or the support shown for Schroeder because she dedicated the season to Claire Davis, the student who was killed in a Dec. 13 shooting at Arapahoe. “Tate is very much a team player,” said Sosnowski. “I can’t speak about the other girls she competes against but when the rest of her team is playing she is always on

Arapahoe High School sophomore Tate Schroeder won the Class 5A state title at No. 1 singles on May 10. Photo by Tom Munds the side of the court and watching them and encouraging them. She could be by herself but she’s so much of a team player. She got a good sense of humor. I’m so proud of her attitude. On the court she’s so focused but off the court she has time for other people.” On the court, Schroeder was nearly unbeatable this season. She was 12-1 with the lone loss a three-set setback in April to

Cheyenne Mountain’s Kalyssa Hall, the winner of the Class 4A No. 1 singles title. “Tate is a very dynamic player,” Sosnowski said. “She’s very aggressive in the way that she plays. She really stays focused when she plays. She attacks the ball a lot and puts pressure on her opponent right from the very first ball. She thrives on pace. “She might prefer her forehand a little

more than her backhand but she’s able to hit winners with both her forehand and backhand. In the last year she’s been working a lot of her serve. So her serve is quite a weapon. “She’s a workhorse on the court. She always gives 100 percent. There’s not a slow gear with her.” Schroeder, the daughter of Denver Broncos cheerleader director Teresa Shear, claims patience has been her biggest improvement this season. “I was a lot more patient this year,” she said. “I waited for the right shot and the right opportunity. That’s something I’ve been working on for a long time. I’m glad it got to show at the state tournament. “I thought it was a great year. I made a lot of new memories and I had a great team. We got third in state, which is the best in school history. I was undefeated in 5A. I was really happy with the results.” Schroeder and Weissmann were recently selected to the National High School Tennis All-American Foundation team. Both players are sophomores, but many elite players skip high school tennis to play in national tournaments. Schroeder hasn’t decided if she will play for Arapahoe as junior. “I’m not sure right now,” she said. “There are a lot of important tournaments during the time of the high school tennis and junior year is an important year for recruitment. “This season was great because the girl I beat (Weissmann) in the finals was No. 18 in the nation. That gave me a good thing to send out to college coaches. High school tennis doesn’t count toward your regular ranking. A lot of college coaches look more at your national ranking than high school tennis.”

Arapahoe senior finishes second at state golf Hannah Wood loses one-hole playoff to Rock Canyon’s Romano By Jim Benton

jbenton@coloradocommunitymedia.com Hannah Wood was obviously disappointed with her putt but was proud to even be in a playoff. The Arapahoe High School senior lost what wound up being a one-hole playoff to Rock Canyon senior Michelle Romano with the Class 5A state title on the line at Littleton’s Raccoon Creek Golf Club. The University of Oklahoma-bound Wood birdied the 18th hole for a 3-overpar 75 and finished the tournament with a 153 total. Romano also had a 75 and a 153 total. When leader Jaylee Tait of Columbine three-putted the last hole for a double bogey to drop into a third-place tie, Wood and Romano grabbed their clubs and headed to the first hole for a playoff to decide who would be the state champion. Both players hit their second shots onto the green on the par-4 first hole. Wood left her 25-foot birdie putt four feet short on her third shot, while Romano, from 15 feet away, rolled her putt to within two feet of the cup. Wood’s par putt, however, lipped out. And Romano tapped in hers to claim the state individual championship. “It’s disappointing,” said Wood about leaving the birdie putt short. “I just considered the greens to be fast but I guess they kind of slowed down. I knew the hail had some effects on the green.” A weather delay had forced the golfers to take cover for 80 minutes late in the final round with several threesomes still on the course.

When play resumed, Wood bogeyed on the par-3, 17th hole but responded with a birdie on the par-4 18th hole, which got her into the playoff. “My goal is to make birdie no matter what,” said Wood who was 1-under par after the front nine to grab a share of the lead. “Everything I did coming in … and then I lost the playoff hole, things just didn’t seem to go my way.” Wood concluded her prep career with a 10th, two thirds and a second-place finish. “I’m proud of myself no matter what, getting into that playoff,” she said. “This tournament means the world to me. It’s pretty disappointing because I really wanted to win this for Arapahoe considering what we went through as a school (this year).” Also from the area, defending champion Calli Ringsby, of Cherry Creek, appeared ready to challenge for the lead after an eagle on the second hole moved her into a first-place tie. Yet the senior struggled the rest of the round, carding a 79 to wind up in a seventh-place tie on the final leaderboard. Creek was fifth in the team standings, ending its string of three consecutive state titles. Legend junior soccer player Anna Kennedy showed her prowess on the golf course with the tournament’s best final round, a two-over-par 74, and tied for third at 154. Samantha Barker of Highlands Ranch was ninth at 160. Regis Jesuit won the team title with 486 points while runner-up Rock Canyon finished three strokes behind. Also in the top 10, Arapahoe was third, Cherry Creek fifth, Heritage seventh and Legend 10th. In the Class 4A tournament at the Country Club of Colorado, Valor Christian’s Andrea Ballou was the runnerup after rounds of 81 and 79 left her 14 strokes behind runaway winner Jennifer Kupcho of Jefferson Academy.

Bruins come up short in finals Air Academy edges Cherry Creek in 5A state championship game By Tom Munds

tmunds@coloradocommunitymedia.com The May 21 Class 5A state girls lacrosse championship game came down to the wire but Air Academy held off a determined Cherry Creek rally to win the title, 11-10. “It was a championship game so you know the other team will be coming at you hard,” Bruins coach Bree Tierney said after the game. “We battled hard and came close but weren’t able to get those final goals we would have needed to win the game.” Cherry Creek finished with a 12-7 record on the year, while Air Academy raised its overall record to 17-2 with the win at the Peter Barnum Stadium on the University of Denver Campus. Between them, the two

teams have won the last nine state championships. The Bruins have won six and the Kadets three. Despite their success, the Bruins, who won it all in 2013, weren’t expected by most to make it to the finals. And while the Kadets won two of their three tournament games by more than 10 goals to advance to the finals Cherry Creek won the quarterfinal and the semifinal games each by one goal. Following an afternoon of heavy rain and hailstorms, the sky was clearing as the teams took to the field for the title tilt. Air Academy scored less than a minute into the game and the Bruins tied the score three minutes later. Cherry Creek scored the next two goals and, about midway through the first half, the Kadets has scored three goals in a row to take a 4-3 advantage. Cherry Creek re-seized the lead at 5-4 with 3:31 left in the half but after a late Kadet goal, things were all tied up at Cherry Creek’s Olivia List (3) drives toward the Air Academy goal during the May 22 Class 5A state girls lacrosse chamthe break. pionship game at the University of Denver Stadium. List scored four goals for the Bruins, yet Air Academy came out on After Creek took a 7-5 lead early in the

top, 11-10 to take home the championship trophy. Photos by Tom Munds

Bruins second half, Air Academy did everything but put the game away, jumping ahead 11-7 with a series of quick tallies. Olivia List started a determined Cherry Creek comeback effort as she intercepted a Kadet pass and won the one-on-one matchup with the Air Academy goalie to make it 11-8. The Bruins then pressed the attack and List scored again with 4:56 left in the game, and Caroline Perry scored 30 seconds later to make pull Cherry Creek within a goal. The Bruins got off seven more shots in the final two minutes, but three sailed wide of the cage, defenders deflected two shots, one hit the goalie and one hit the cage. Air Academy regained possession of the ball and ran out the clock to preserve the win. “The game was a little different than I expected,” Tierney said. “I expected us to shoot better and I thought we could shut down their attack a little better. That said I am proud of the way our girls refused to quit when Air Academy was up by four. They put on a spurt at the end to make the game close and they should be proud of that effort.” The coach noted the next few weeks will be time for the team to celebrate the good things about the season for the 11 seniors who graduated earlier in the day. She said those seniors will be hard to replace but she feels she has a number of good players who will be ready to step up and battle for starting spots on the varsity team next spring. Senior Sarah Cromer, who handles the draws for the team, finished the game with two assists. She said it was an emotional time for her and all the seniors on the team. “We bonded as a team, overcame a lot of obstacles and made it to the state finals,” she said. “No one thought we would get very far in the finals.” “There is a lot of emotion tonight because high school is over for those of us who are seniors. I take away the friendships I have made and the memories I have made from my time at Cherry Creek and my time on the girls lacrosse team.”
