Event puts focus on equality Residents remember King’s visit 50 years ago By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@coloradocommunitymedia.com When Martin Luther King Jr. visited Littleton 50 years ago, the city’s “nonwhite” population was a mere 0.3 percent. Today it’s 11 percent, though just 1.4 percent of city residents are black. That’s despite the fact that a group of Littleton residents worked very hard in the 1960s to diversify the city’s population via the creation of the Littleton Council on Human Relations, the group that convinced King to visit what was then one of the largest — and whitest — suburbs in the state. On April 2, former Littleton residents Dr. Charles Fraser and Dr. Elinor Green-

berg visited the city’s Bemis Library to talk a little about those days during the “Created Equal: America’s Civil Rights Struggle” film discussion series, sponsored by the National Endowment for the Humanities and Colorado Humanities Council to mark the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation. “We heard King was coming to Denver, but Denver didn’t have too much of a problem,” said Fraser. “We said, `You’ve got to go to Littleton. It’s white, and there’s nothing going on down there.’ Everybody who was anybody got together and wanted to start the Littleton council, and it became almost a model for other places in the country.” Greenberg said a catalyst for the group was when Martin Marietta, now Lockheed Martin, hired a black engineer from out of King continues on Page 13

Local seniors party hearty New community room at Amity Plaza hosts Mardi Gras By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@coloradocommunitymedia.com Residents at Amity Plaza senior living building got their boogie on March 28 during a Mardi Gras celebration held to break in their new community room. “We’ve wanted it for a long time,” said Bea Madden while enjoying French-inspired treats with friends as disco music set the groove for the evening. The new party room is more than twice the size of the old one, leaving more room for residents with walkers or wheelchairs

room to maneuver. It’s lined with windows to let in the sun, and doors open up to a new patio for summertime gatherings. New flooring and artwork enhance the contemporary design, perfect for the highenergy Mardi Gras party. “It gives everybody a chance to dress up,” said resident Patti Miller. Indeed, most of the partiers got into the spirit with masks, beads and gold, purple and green garb. Amity hosts regular events for the residents, things like potlucks and holiday celebrations, bingo and card games. “Sometimes we just make up our own excuse to have a party,” said Annie Kirk, who glittered in purple. Dan Burnham, outgoing executive director of South Metro Housing Op-

tions, joined in the festivities. He said the $450,000 project was started last November and includes a remodel of the lobby, new windows throughout the building and security cameras in every hallway. Burnham had looked forward to seeing the completed community room before his retirement on May 15. “It is our largest building, but it had the least amount of communal space,” he said. Amity Plaza is a 180-unit, seven-story subsidized housing complex of one-bedroom units at 200 W. Sterne Parkway. It was constructed in 1979, one of five buildings SMHO maintains for seniors and people with disabilities in Littleton. For more information, visit www.southmetrohousingoptions.org or call 303-794-9608.

Wilder Elementary School staff and parents are sowing some pretty ambitious seeds, and they are hoping the community can help pour a little water on them. “We have made great strides in promoting healthy eating by improving our cafeteria options, but we want to take it further and give students the opportunity to plant, tend and harvest their own food,” said parent Renet Greer. “This `farm to table’ experience will encourage students to make healthier choices beyond their years at Wilder.” So she and other volunteers set about designing a garden and other playground improvements that, says Principal Susan Dalton, will serve the needs of all the kids. There will be a quiet area for reading, a “playcabin” and activities like hopscotch and climbing logs. “Being Laura Ingalls Wilder, we wanted it to have kind of a prairie feel, with lots of natural-looking things,” said parent Amy Guthrie. “And shade. The kids really wanted more shade.” To cater to kids restless to be outside during Colorado’s many sunshiny days, the volunteers have planned an outdoor classroom that teachers can use for science and art projects or just to spend learning time out in the fresh air. “We’re just going to create the space and let the teachers use it however they want,” said Guthrie.

Good knights in Arapahoe County

Two local WWII vets honored by French president Staff report The south-metro area is getting two new, actual, real-life knights. World War II veterans Elmo “Mitch” Mischler, of Centennial, and Walter Quering, of Littleton, have earned the praise of French President François Hollande, who is bestowing upon them the National Order of The Legion of Honor in the rank of Chevalier (Knight). It is the highest distinction in France, created by Napoleon in 1802. “(The honor) is in recognition of their heroic actions and precious contributions to the liberation of France during the war,” reads a press release announcing the honor. “… The French people will never forget the veterans’ courage and their devotion to the great cause of freedom.” Senior Master Sgt. Mischler, U.S. Air Force, was born in Eckley, Colo. on July 11, 1923. He enlisted at Fort Leavenworth in December 1942 and arrived in England in September 1943, assigned to the 333rd Squadron, 94th Bomb Group. He was part

He also has the European-AfricanMiddle Eastern Campaign Medal with three battle stars. After the war, Quering moved to Colorado and completed a degree in accounting and economics at Regis University in 1949. The entrepreneur then opened his own insurance company and an electronics company, General Sound and Electronics. He and his wife Catherine, married in 1947 and raised three daughters who gave them two grandchildren. Catherine passed away in 1995. Mischler and Quering join four other Colorado men in accepting the honor: Lt. Leonard Siekmeier Jr., U. S. Army, of Colorado Springs; Staff Sgt. Claude Osbourn, U. S. Army Air Corps, of Broomfield; PFC Richard Walker, U. S. Army, of Boulder; Private First Class Edward Seitz, U. S. Army, of Colorado Springs. The medals will be bestowed by Jeffrey Richards, Esq., Honorary Consul of France in Denver, at a ceremony to be held at noon on April 24 in the Old Supreme Court Chambers of the Colorado State Capitol building.

Railroad history event coming down the tracks Two-day symposium to feature speakers, displays By Tom Munds

tmunds@coloradocommunitymedia.com There will be discussions and displays about trains and the impact of railroads on the area’s history during a two-day symposium in Englewood, hosted by the Rocky Mountain Railroad Heritage Society. Some of the subjects being addressed by featured speakers include moving troops by train from Fort Logan to Wounded Knee in the 1890s; the history of the laundry train; and a report on the model railroad in Greeley that is the largest in the country. The event also will include displays of railroad memorabilia and a silent auction. The symposium will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. April 12 and 13 at Hampden Hall, on the second floor of the Englewood Civic Center, 1000 Englewood Parkway. Tickets are $20 per day or $25 for the two-day event and can be purchased at the door. Larry Noland said he just learned about the symposium and plans to attend. The Littleton man said he has read a lot about Colorado railroad history and wants to learn more. He said his reading includes works by some of the symposium speakers, so he wants to listen to their comments about the area’s rich railroad history. Society president Jim Jordan said the organization was established on June 19, 2013, right after Englewood sold its train depot. “We wanted to help save and restore the Englewood Depot, but that didn’t happen,” he said. “So, we established the society to do all we can to help preserve and restore historic railroad buildings and equipment in the future.”

Five-week summer program is sponsored by state department By Hannah Garcia

hgarcia@coloradocommunitymedia.com A group of Finnish students are heading to the south metro region this summer and the program is searching for families to host them. There are 13 students who are participating in the Young Ambassador’s Program, an arm of the Youth For Understanding exchange organization. Leena Gould, the program coordinator who is from Finland herself, said she has eight families and is looking for five more. The application process includes a background check and an interview at the applicant’s home, Gould said. “Applicants don’t have to have children, but it’s great if they do,” Gould said. Gould lives in Highlands Ranch, but is looking for families throughout the south metro region. This year’s program is centered on renewable energy and green initiatives, Gould said. Students will have two official programs weekly, including trips to explore the Environmental Protection Agency offices in Denver and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory in Boulder. “The point is also to learn about the cul-

mental health care

for children & teens WITHOUT insurance

Better days are just around the corner.

He said there are about 125 members of the society who are enthusiastic about all aspects of railroading and railroading history. “The focus of the symposium is the history of railroads in Colorado and the impact railroads had on the history of the state and surrounding area,” Jordan said. He said in the society’s short history it has become a clearinghouse for individuals or organizations looking for railroad supplies or equipment. He said, for example, a Colorado Springs group sought railroad ties and the society was able to locate them and have them donated. In addition, he said the society has been contacted by railroad history organizations in several surrounding states for information and cooperation with their projects. “We also have five communities that have asked us to help save and preserve their railroad depots,” Jordan said. “Right now, the depot most endangered is the one in the city of Craig.”

ture and make lifelong connections,” Gould said. “The students will basically live like family members in the household (of the host family).” The students will stay with the families for five and a half weeks this summer from June 6 to July 14. The program is sponsored by the State Department. “They are from all over Finland,” Gould said. “The goal was to get students that were socially aware with an interest in environmental issues and a cultural interest (in the U.S.). They are expected, when they get back, to spread the knowledge.” Gould said the program is search for families with interest in hosting students from another culture, but there is no income requirement or rule against same-sex couples or single parents. The exchange students either have to sleep in their own room or share one with someone between the ages of 1022. “We’ve had families that were originally interested but hesitant to actually go through with the application,” Gould said. “People who do the program normally find it to be a gratifying experience.” The 13 students participants were chosen from 320 applications and were selected based on academics and previous travel experience, Gould said.

Little help for those with ‘dual diagnoses’ Developmental disabilities, mental illnesses leave patients in cold By Kristin Jones

I-News at Rocky Mountain PBS A raised red oval, a couple of inches in diameter, sits at the top of Alex Meredith’s forehead. It is the physical mark of a besieged mind. Meredith, who is 29, started bashing himself in the head when he was in his teens. Now, his parents can see it coming. A tranquil moment of drawing at the kitchen table cedes to Alex’s high-pitched squeal, his wrists colliding. Once he starts hitting himself, there’s nothing to do but freeze and wait for it to pass. Meredith was diagnosed with autism when he was very young. Later, his parents were told he also displayed symptoms of mental illness — obsessive-compulsive disorder, anxiety, psychosis and depression. For Carol and John Meredith, Alex’s parents, the search for treatment has brought them to psychiatrists and psychologists, to mental health centers and the communitycentered boards that serve people with autism and other developmental disabilities. Carol heads The Arc of Arapahoe and Douglas Counties, an organization that advocates for people with disabilities, and has access to more than the usual range of leads and contacts. Still, nobody seems to know exactly what to do with Alex. The Merediths are not alone in their frustration, according to an ongoing study by JFK Partners, a program that does research on developmental disabilities at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. For people with the dual diagnoses of developmental disability — which can range from Down syndrome to autism to cerebral palsy — and mental illness, getting treatment means navigating a fragmented system, the study has found. Funding quirks have created huge gaps in care. As a result, family members find themselves alone — and often isolated — in trying to manage complex problems that need professional support.

Lack of help can hurt

In the worst cases, the repercussions across society can be extreme. In a recent interview with The New Yorker, the father of Newtown school killer Adam Lanza described trying and failing to find adequate treatment for his son, whose world slowly shrank to contain only his mother and his video games. Lanza was diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome, considered a mild form of autism, when he was 13. A psychiatrist at Yale’s Child Study Center later noted symptoms of obsessive-compulsive disorder as well, and his father now believes his autism may have masked schizophrenia. “Asperger’s makes people unusual, but it doesn’t make people like this,” Peter Lanza told The New Yorker. The number of Coloradans affected isn’t small. Nationally, around one in three people with a developmental disability also has a diagnosis of some form of mental illness, according to a frequently cited study by the National Association of State directors of Developmental Disabilities Services. That would translate to around 35,000 people in the state with dual diagnoses, based on common estimates of the prevalence of developmental disabilities. Many are left without adequate care, and some without any care at all. Expensive visits to the emergency room — which often provide little help except for short-term stabilization — have become a primary line of defense. Advocates like Meredith are hoping that the latest statecommissioned study at CU will lead to a change in the way that people with complex developmental and mentalhealth diagnoses are treated. One option would be to model Colorado’s care after a program that began in New Hampshire and has since been adopted in other states, with the idea of providing crisis intervention and care coordinators for people who needed these services. But any solutions remain a few years off at best, leaving families in this situation to seek each other out for ideas and

support.

Holistic care urged

The current system in Colorado “divides people up into their different diagnoses,” says JFK Partners director Cordelia Robinson Rosenberg. “But care has to treat people holistically.” Most people with both developmental disabilities and behavioral health conditions are covered by Medicaid. But in Colorado, the public insurance treats the two diagnostic categories under incompatible payment systems - the first as fee-for-service, and the second as managed care. Carl Clark, who heads the Mental Health Center of Denver, says that while health-care providers often try to work together to treat people who fall into both categories, the divide in payment models is explicit. “Our funding from the state (for Medicaid enrollees) says you do not use this for people with developmental disability,” Clark says. As a result, mental health centers are often ill-equipped to offer some of the services — such as long-term housing support — that people with developmental disabilities need. At the same time, the two funding models have left little room to develop specialists who are skilled in diagnosing and treating both developmental disabilities — which can include fetal alcohol syndrome, a notoriously hard thing to pinpoint — and complex mental illnesses. And even experienced psychiatrists may have trouble attributing behaviors to one diagnosis or another. “Unfortunately,” says Clark, “the science does not divide the brain up as clearly as funding sources do.” The complexity of who pays for what can have real impacts on treatment. Carol Meredith recently discovered that a psychologist who was having some success in treating her son hadn’t been paid since October. Nobody — including the psychologist herself — could figure out who was responsible for paying her. Worse, research from the University of Colorado has found that a significant number of Coloradans are excluded from treatment entirely, Rosenberg says. Medicaid establishes an IQ threshold for developmental disabilities, excluding people who surpass that bar but who still suffer from severe social or intellectual limitations. Surveys conducted by JFK Partners found that for every one person who is receiving services for developmental disabilities under Medicaid, Rosenberg says, there’s another person who isn’t being served. That includes people who have unmet mental-health needs.

ER is often only option

Marijo Rymer, who heads The Arc of Colorado, says parents of children with dual diagnoses call her in frustration after failing to find any help for their children. Too frequently, the only option is the emergency room. “When their children are hurting themselves, or hurting them, and they don’t know what to do,” says Rymer, “we will advise people to call 911.” Doing so repeatedly can help build a case for the kind of sustained long-term services that people with dual diagnoses need. But encounters with police and emergency rooms can cost patients, hospitals and taxpayers a huge amount of money. And ERs are geared toward crisis management — often the most disruptive way and least effective way to treat someone who needs consistent care. Valerie Saiz and her husband Richard waited four days and four nights in an emergency room in 2010 — and again in 2011 — in an effort to get treatment for their now 16-yearold son. Graham, who has autism and bipolar disorder, had been hitting himself violently. His parents took turns restraining him. “We noticed that the other kids getting admitted to the ER, if they were aggressive to others, they’d restrain them,” said Saiz. “If they were self-abusive, we’d have to do it ourselves.” Each time he was admitted, Graham was discharged without a plan for treatment, says Saiz. The family was forced to craft their own solution, putting a helmet and

11 Critical Home Inspection Traps to be Aware of Weeks Before Listing Your Littleton Home

Scan here to like Colorado Community Media on Facebook

ColoradoCommunityMedia.com

Littleton – According to industry experts, there are over 33 physical problems that will come under scrutiny during a home inspection when your home is for sale. A new report has been prepared which identifies the eleven most common of these problems, and what you should know about them before you list your home for sale. Whether you own an old home or a brand new one, there are a number of things that can fall short of requirements during a home inspection. If not identified and dealt with, any of these 11 items could cost you dearly in terms of repair. That’s why it’s critical that you read this report before you list your home. If you wait until the building inspector flags these issues for you, you will almost certainly experience costly delays in the close of your home sale or, worse, turn

prospective buyers away altogether. In most cases, you can make a reasonable pre-inspection yourself if you know what you’re looking for, and knowing what you’re looking for can help you prevent little problems from growing into costly and unmanageable ones. To help homesellers deal with this issue before their homes are listed, a free report entitled “11 Things You Need to Know to Pass Your Home Inspection” has been compiled which explains the issues involved. To hear a brief recorded message about how to order your FREE copy of this report, call toll-free 1-800-508-7293 and enter 1003. You can call any time, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Get your free special report NOW to learn how to ensure a home inspection doesn’t cost you the sale of your home.

LWV could be in for changes Nonpartisan group has notable history By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@coloradocommunitymedia.com Since 1919, League of Women Voters members have been meeting to discuss the many aspects of local, state and national government: legislation, ballot issues and background information a voter needs to make wise decisions.

In the immediate future, campaign finance takes the spotlight for the Arapahoe County LWV: On April 30 at 6:30 p.m., the film “Big Sky, Big Money” will be shown at Koelbel Library, 5955 S.

to either the sign or their individual emblems, but nobody did. She also checked in with the city and CDOT, to no avail. While it’s possible the sign just got swept away during the construction on Santa Fe in the 1980s, Whiting hopes somebody somewhere has it tucked away as a keepsake. Ideally, she said, she’d like to see the sign go back up at the Santa Fe entryway to the city, or at least have the service clubs recognized on the new brick gateway features. “We’d like to raise awareness that we’re here,” she said. “We need to attract newer, younger men and women to these clubs that do so much already.” The colorful sign sat in a triangular median in the middle of Santa Fe, facing north. Just to its south was an even more imposing icon, a huge Paul Bunyan announcing that North Woods Inn had “Paul Bunyan Sized Meals.” Before moving south on Santa Fe to Blakeland Drive and finally closing in 2011, the restaurant lived in what is now Hudson Gardens from 1962 until 1997. Bunyan was removed prior to the move, after the city’s sign code changed in the ‘80s.

April 10, 2014

opinions / yours and ours

Pot and substance abuse no ‘gray matter’ Colorado law legalizing retail marijuana sales for adults age 21 and older took effect on Jan. 1. So, now that pot is legal for adults, it’s not such a big deal if kids give it a try, right? Pot use, and any drug or alcohol use for that matter, is still illegal for kids and young adults. Perhaps more important than the legal vs. illegal argument is the fact that any of these substances have dangerous effects on the developing brains, the gray matter, of young people. Why do kids use drugs and alcohol? Peer pressure is certainly a reason, but not the main one. The choice is typically due to boredom, easy access, underestimation of the harm or to help diminish symptoms of a mental-health issue. According to the Colorado Health Foundation 2012 Health Report Card, “On average, teens begin drinking alcohol at the age of 14. Those who start drinking before age 15 are four times more likely to develop a dependence on alcohol.” For these kids, there is clear and present danger to brain development and addiction resulting in damaging impacts throughout life. Our brain doesn’t reach “adulthood” until around the age of 25, and research has shown time and time again that pot

and all substances impact the teen brain much differently than adult brains. In adolescence, delicate synapses are still forming, gray matter is growing and the brain is focused on building the parts that maintain memory, learning, emotional control and executive functioning, which will be used for the rest of their lives. Early substance use stunts these growth areas while increasing the possibility of mentalhealth issues, academic failure, addiction and relationship difficulties. While alcohol is the most abused substance by teens, a study from the Colorado State University Extension office reported that up to 56.5 percent of Colorado teens have used some form of illegal drug by the 12th grade, with up to 6.8 percent having used an illegal drug before age 13.

letter to the editor lawmaker weighs in on Chatfield reservoir Recently I have been contacted by a number of my constituents with concerns over the dramatic changes that are planned regarding the Chatfield Reservoir. I want to be very open that I share many of the same concerns with upcoming changes. Having grown up and lived in JeffCo most of my life, I have spent many days hiking, biking, and camping around Chatfield. I have many wonderful memories from my childhood enjoying the recreation opportunities Chatfield Reservoir offers. I have concerns that the changes being proposed could have historic and potentially harmful consequences both environmentally and recreationally, and I have made these concerns known to the appropriate departments and individuals at the local, state and federal level. At this point the final decision and plan to mitigate the recreation and environmental changes is now in the hands of the State Parks & Wildlife Department and the Army Corps of Engineers, and we expect the final legal agreement and

plan to be released and finalized in April sometime. However, while I remain very concerned about the proposal I do want to acknowledge the transparent work that the Colorado Water Conservation Board and the Army Corps of Engineers have engaged in. There were over 75 days in the public comment period and over 100 public-comment meetings receiving feedback in the past 10 years. They have been open in creating a plan that will be funded by the companies seeking change. It is this level of transparency that all levels of government should seek. I am waiting anxiously to see the final mitigation plans, but if you have any questions about specifics in the interim, or after it is released, you can reach out to the Army Corps of Engineers at 303979-4120 or the Colorado State Parks & Wildlife Department at 303-297-1192. Please feel free to contact me about this issue or any issue at senatorandykerr@ gmail.com or 303-866-4859. State Sen. Andy Kerr District 22 (Jefferson County)

Enough barking might be worse than a bite For the umpteenth time the house next door has been rented. Like most of the others, the move-in was so discreet that I didn’t even see it. I don’t know how many are living there now, genders or what they look like. I think ownership of a big dog that barks incessantly is required for occupancy. I always hope that my newest neighbors might just have two or three neon tetras, but it’s always the Hound of the Baskervilles. I know, I know: It could be worse. It could be a crack house or a party house. It’s never that. But there is almost always the torture of compromised days and nights by a spectral beast constantly BARKING loudly. I am not talking about five or 10 minutes at a time. The current canine can go on for hours. To give you an idea, he or she gave me the idea for this column when it broke into my nap two hours ago, and is still going strong. Why don’t I mention something to the owners? I have tried that in the past. The next step is to file a complaint. That’s Section 1.05 (1) (h) under Douglas County Resolution R-998-100. That can become a Class 2 petty offense, and it sets up the possibility of resolution or a really bad relationship with the neighbor

and prescription drug use is on the rise in the south metro area. Opiates and synthetic opiates, including Percocet, heroin and OxyContin, are extremely addictive, so not only do they have a devastating effect on teen brain development; they are extremely difficult to quit. How do you recognize the signs of substance abuse in teens? When is it normal teen moodiness or addiction? Most often there are key, noticeable changes in behavior, moods, grades and friends. You may notice the telltale signs of slurred speech, “looking high,” dilated pupils or changes in eating and sleeping patterns. Be aware of your teen’s “normal” and gauge changes from there. Unchecked, substance abuse in teens can lead to immediate health risks such as risky sexual behavior and physical injury. Addicted teens have a higher dropout rate and increased criminal behavior and involvement in the juvenile justice system. Preventing young people from trying drugs and alcohol is the first and safest line of defense in maintaining healthy brain development and a healthy person. Prevention requires open and honest communication, plus clear rules and expectations about behavior. It also requires a

So the other day I found myself in the middle of a situation. I was a third party to two other people debating and even arguing over an event that had taken place. They both viewed and experienced the circumstances differently and at this point had become quite agitated with one another. When they asked me my opinion and who I thought was right, my first instinct was to run as fast I could away from the situation. Although that was probably the right move, it was almost impossible based on where we were at the moment. And then my over-developed sense of obligation kicked in anyway and I tried to mediate as best I could. I went to my “goto” line in these situations and said something like, “It sounds like you both have a strong opinion about what happened and the truth can probably be found somewhere in the middle.” Is that a cop-out or what? So much for my “go-to” line. If truth is really truth, how can it be found in the middle? Are we compromising truth for political correctness and making sure we smooth over feelings for all parties involved, making sure everyone

forever after — or even retaliation. One wishes that responsible dog ownership would never come close to reaching that point, but obviously it does if there is a seven-step warning process. That is Section 1.05 (2). The Douglas County website pages on pet ownership responsibilities are excellent and thorough, but who would ever read them, until after the filing of a complaint? Another reason I won’t complain — yet — is that these owners, like all of the others, will be gone in a year or a year and a half. As I said: Umpteen. If someone were to buy the house and look like they would stick around for a while, I would communicate something to them.

close look at your own substance use and beliefs. If you think your child is using drugs, early intervention is the best option for successful treatment and healthy brain growth. Today there are proven practices for treating the unique needs of young people with addiction that are equally effective for people who are “ready to quit” and those who are refusing to quit. Most treatment occurs in an outpatient setting and involves the help and support of the teen’s family. Teen substance use is no “gray matter.” The facts are black and white about the dangers to growth and development and consequences of inhibited decisionmaking at such an impressionable time of life. Start talking with your teen today and let him or her know that this is not a gray area: No drug or alcohol use is OK. Your support of your teen’s brain health and overall wellness will have long-lasting rewards.

in the situation is OK? And if so, is there anything really wrong with that approach? Unfortunately I think there is — it’s called avoiding the truth. Now there are some people who are extremely direct and never have an issue with speaking their mind or telling others exactly how they feel and how they perceive things. This doesn’t mean they are right or even necessarily telling the truth, it just means that they are direct. These folks typically live by a saying, “Seldom right, but never in doubt.” The other extreme is people who will not utter a word; they will stand by and Norton continues on Page 9

Business tax credit bill moves forward Employers given more incentive to create Colorado jobs By Vic Vela

vvela@coloradocommunitymedia.com The expansion of a job-growth incentive tax credit is gaining momentum at the Legislature. Under current law, businesses can earn income tax credits over a five-year period for every job they create in Colorado. The new bill would expand the availability of that credit to eight years and would make other modifications to an effort that received bipartisan support at the Legislature last year. House Minority Leader Brian DelGrosso, R-Loveland, and Rep. Tracy Kraft-Tharp, D-Arvada, said the effort to expand the law is a testament to its popularity. “While our economy is starting to move along, this is a bill that will help us move back to that robust state,” KraftTharp said on the House floor on April 4, just before House members gave initial approval to the legislation. The bill was expected to easily pass the House during a final vote, which was scheduled for April 7. The changes to the bill are business friendly. In addition to expanding the availability of the credit, the bill reduces a require-

ment that exists in the current law, which mandates that businesses must offer an employee 110 percent of the average county wage. The new bill lowers that requirement to 100 percent. The bill also alters the “burden of proof” that companies must meet in order to qualify for the credit. Currently, businesses must prove that the jobs likely would not have been located in Colorado had it not been for the credit. According to the bill’s fiscal note, the changes to the bill “require employers to state that, without the credit, the probability of locating the jobs in Colorado would be reduced.” But the tax credit has guardrails because it is performance-based. The new employee must be employed for a full year before the business receives the credit, which is equal to one-half of the amount of what employers pay for a worker’s federal Social Security and Medicare taxes. Aiding the bill’s chances of becoming law is a reduced fiscal impact that was presented to the House Appropriations Committee just hours before it received a full vote in the House. The original version of the bill would have cost the state $55 million through the 2027-2028 fiscal year. But fiscal analysts and bill sponsors managed to lower that amount to $30 million. “It is important to keep Colorado competitive and continue to attract new businesses to the state,” Rep. Kraft-Tharp said in a statement after the House vote. “This bill will create good jobs and help more businesses hire workers.”

passively watch or listen as someone spins a story or even tells an outright lie. They know it’s wrong but they would prefer to keep quiet instead of risking the wrath of the other person or just take the position of going along to get along. I am not sure about you, but no matter how much it might hurt, and it has hurt when it has happened to me … I would rather someone be honest, even brutally honest with me and tell me what I need to hear, not just want I want to hear. I want them to tell me the truth or call me out when they feel I am not telling the truth. And here’s what I have personally experienced in each situation: When the truth is actually revealed, regardless of how painful it might be, everything becomes better much faster for all parties. There may have been initial hurts and disappointments, but truth is truth and no one has to continue a lie or perpetuate a story that could

I built the backyard fence 20 years ago. All that separates Smitty from Baskerville are some aged wooden pickets. If I had the money, I’d replace the whole thing. That’s always one of life’s biggest words: “If.” The good news is that Smitty rarely goes out there. His unwillingness to go outside if it is even slightly too warm or too cool is astounding. He completely refuses snow. Also rain and fog and certain mists. I think it would be nifty if everyone received a copy of pet ownership responsibilities the day they unpacked. I’m not going to do it. Chances are it wouldn’t do any good. As I have said before, some people own dogs who shouldn’t be allowed to own a houseplant. I watched a great Hitchcock film, “Rear

cause drama or future problems. There is a Proverb that reads, “An honest answer is like a kiss on the lips.” There is so much truth in that one simple Proverb. It is so frustrating for everyone involved when we search for the truth in conflicting agendas and personalities. Drama gives way to truth and we find ourselves back in the vicious cycle of political correctness and making sure everyone feels good. Maybe it’s more like the epic line by Jack Nicholson in the movie “A Few Good Men” when he shouts from the witness stand, “You can’t handle the truth!” How about you, is the truth found somewhere in the middle? Is an honest answer like a kiss on the lips? Can you handle the truth?

Window,” the other night. Maybe you know the story. Jimmy Stewart is stuck in a wheelchair with a cast on his broken leg, and spends the entire film watching and listening to what goes on from his third-floor courtyard apartment. There are sounds coming at him constantly. All of the windows in the courtyard are open, because it’s a hot, humid summer. I would lose my mind. One of the things I value more than anything else is being the maker of all of the sounds that I hear in my home. With one exception. I like to hear airplanes flying overhead once or twice in the middle of the night. I try to imagine who is flying and where to and why. A dog’s incessant barking is more like dripping water, only much louder. Craig Marshall Smith is an artist, educator and Highlands Ranch resident.

State firefighting fleet gets cleared for takeoff vvela@coloradocommunitymedia.com One way or another, the state will soon free up money to get an unfunded aerial firefighting fleet off the ground. The governor’s office and legislative leaders are on board with a spending plan that would set aside $21 million to purchase or contract planes and helicopters that are equipped to fight fires. The money was approved through an amendment to the annual state budget that was debated in the Senate on April 3. Gov. John Hickenlooper’s office and lawmakers will have to get creative to find where in the budget the fleet funding will be secured. But all sides agree that this will happen this year — much to excitement of the legislator who has been instrumental in driving the creation of the Colorado Firefighting Air Corps. “Quite frankly, this is the most important legislation of my life,” said Sen. Steve King, R-Grand Junction. The funding behind King’s effort comes on the heels of a much-anticipated state fire report that was released last week. The Colorado Division of Fire Prevention and Control found that the state lacks resources in key firefighting areas, including a lack of aerial firefighting capabilities. “Colorado does not have the ability to deliver appropriate aviation resources in a timely fashion to support local suppression response to small fires while they are still small,” states the report, which was authored by CDFPC Director Paul Cooke. The report was mandated through last year’s passage of a bill — sponsored by King and Sen. Cheri Jahn, D-Wheat Ridge — that created the Colorado Firefighting Air Corps, a state-owned firefighting fleet. The “idea” of the fleet became law, but the legislation went unfunded, at least until the state could learn more about the feasibility of having its own fire fleet. Prior to the release of the fire report, Hickenlooper had been non-committal on the idea of undertaking the potentially enormous costs that come with operating a state-owned aerial fleet. However, Hick-

Changes likely to be made to American Indian tuition bill Classification of specific tribes becomes roadblock for measure’s advancement By Vic Vela

vvela@coloradocommunitymedia.com A bill that seeks to provide tuition relief for out-of-state American Indian students will be scaled back because of difficulties over the cost assessment of the legislation, according to the bill sponsor. The original intention of House Bill 1124 was to allow all students living out of state who have tribal connections to Colorado to receive in-state tuition rates at state colleges and universities. But the legislation is expected to be amended to apply only to incoming students and not American Indians who are currently enrolled. “What do you say to that person?” said Rep. Joe Salazar, D-Thornton, the bill sponsor. “Maybe that’s something we can work on next year.” Salazar said the changes to the bill became necessary after learning more about how colleges and universities count American Indian students. Under the bill, only students who are among one of the 48 federally recognized tribes that have historical ties to Colorado qualify for in-state tuition. But Salazar said

that estimating costs is difficult because schools don’t dig deep into the specific tribal backgrounds of students. The Legislative Council estimates that the bill’s first-year cost to the state will exceed $668,000. Also, state colleges and universities were estimated to lose more than $5 million in tuition revenue under the original version of the bill. Yet they are expected to see an increase of students who wouldn’t otherwise attend their schools. But all of those statistics would be difficult to calculate under the current system of American Indian student calculation, which Salazar calls a counting system that results in “pie in the sky numbers.” “They have a bunch of students out there who just check the box and say they’re American Indian, but don’t prove which tribe they’re from,” Salazar said. “They can have, as you sometimes hear, a Cherokee Indian princess grandmother, and they mark the box, `American Indian.’” Salazar said the changes to the bill could end up being a good thing because colleges would then have to start classifying the specific tribes from which students belong. He also said that the cost to the state “would be quite minimal, if anything at all,” once the bill is amended. “The stakeholders said it’s better to have in-state tuition for American Indian students than not,” Salazar said. “And if it looks like the bill is going to die because of a wrong fiscal note, then we don’t want the bill to die.”

enlooper had been open to exploring ways of sharing those costs through a multistate effort. For months, it was uncertain whether the fleet would ever become a reality. That all changed after Cooke released his 103page fire report on March 28. Cooke presented the report’s finding to a special legislative committee on April 3. He told lawmakers that Colorado competes with other states for federal resources to fight fires, and that the state doesn’t have the proper amount of tools needed to combat early or late-season wildfires. Cooke also said that the state currently has just two, single-engine air tankers available to deal with the entire state’s firefighting needs. “The state, in terms of being able to help to bring overwhelming force to a wildfire, that’s not the case...” he said. Cooke’s report recommended that the state acquire $33 million worth of firefighting aircraft and other technology. But Cooke later told the governor’s office that it should hold off on acquiring two large, fixed-wing air tankers — as his report recommended — because precipitation from this winter’s weather makes it difficult to determine when those large tankers would even be needed this year. That cuts price tag by $12 million. So the state plans to move forward with the purchase of two multi-mission fixedwing planes and will contract for the use of four Type III rotor wing planes and four single-engine air tankers. The state will also spend $100,000 to set up a wildfire information management system, which will provide real-time fire information within the statewide fire communications system. The rest of the $21 million will be spent of airport fees, equipment and other related expenses. The Senate set aside the fleet money for this year’s budget in a placeholder funding area, until it is moved to another area within the budget. Henry Sobanet, the state’s budget director, said that the funding is expected to come from the state’s Tax Payer Bill of Rights reserves and through the delaying of paying back certain cash funds. “I think we’ll get the funding from the exact places where we want to see it come from,” Sobanet said.

Film explores fight for marriage rights King Staff report Those who participated in the “Created Equal: America’s Civil Rights Struggle” film discussion series at Littleton’s Bemis Library on April 2 viewed clips from “The Loving Story,” a documentary about interracial married couple Richard and Mildred Loving. Interracial marriage was illegal in their home state of Virginia, and they were arrested in a nighttime raid on their home in 1958, shortly after they had gotten married in nearby Washington, D.C. “It was more about just reminding blacks that they’re inferior and whites are superior,” said facilitator Patricia Richard, a history professor at Metropolitan State University of Denver. “It was to keep them from socially mixing, so it would not lead to sexual mixing.” The American Civil Liberties Union later took the case,

The kids will be responsible for tending the garden, teaching them responsibility and teamwork, and the food they grow will go straight to the cafeteria, teaching them about health and nutrition. There will even be “buddy benches” where kids who are feeling a little lonely can sit in hopes other kids will notice and invite them to join in an activity. Dalton expects the students will learn much more than academics in the new spaces, but those won’t be neglected. “We plan to fully integrate the garden into the curriculum so that environmental and life science, language arts,

and fought for the Lovings all the way up to the Supreme Court, finally winning a unanimous verdict striking down the law nine years after the arrest. By then, the couple — who had been required to leave the state to avoid prison — had two children. “They may be poor, and they may be low-class, as they say, but they were determined,” recalls grown daughter Peggy Loving in the film. Brenda Ames remembers the case well, because she too was a young black woman living in the South at the time. She was on the front lines of the civil-rights movement, she said, though she remembers lots of black parents trying to shield their children from all that was going on. “They thought, `I’m going through this so you don’t have to go through this, and you don’t need to know about this,’” she said. math, even art and PE will all be tied back to the garden,” said Greer. “Learning the life cycle of a plant in a classroom is one thing, but to go out there and see it, that’s going to stick with them for the rest of their lives.” Members of the playground committee hope the new landscape will be an asset to the whole neighborhood, and that community members will get involved via an “adopt a garden” program or a community build day planned for June 7.

state. His wife, who Greenberg said was very light-skinned, got to Littleton ahead of him to house-hunt. She found one, and her husband came out to see it. Upon seeing the husband, the builder changed the locks and refused to sell to the couple. Greenberg said that was very common in Littleton at the time, and real-estate agents would usually steer people of color away from town. Attitudes were changing far less quickly than Littleton was growing with the arrival of Martin Marietta and Marathon Oil, and Greenberg said she and others who were working toward change often encountered hostility. “My neighbor seriously objected,” she remembers. “He said, `You are going to ruin our neighborhood, and you are doing things to cause our property values to go down.’” She and he didn’t talk for another 25 years, said Greenberg. But the council continued its work, and ultimately worked with legislators to get fair-housing bills passed. They also made sure a lot of real-estate agents attended King’s speech on Jan. 24, 1964, at Grace Presbyterian Church. “We’re struggling in the final analysis to save the soul of our nation,” he told them. “We’re struggling also to save the image of our nation. Therefore it is imperative for the nation to work passionately and unrelentingly now to get rid of this cancer of segregation and discrimination.” Littleton continues its efforts to welcome diversity, notably through the immigrant resource center based at Bemis — one of just two libraries in the state to host the film series. There is one session left, on May 7. The film is “Freedom Riders,” and special guest Carlotta Walls LaNier will share her experiences as one of the “Little Rock Nine” who integrated Little Rock Central High School in 1957.

For the last two months, The Wildlife Experience has been home to 19 varieties of live turtles, crocodilians, lizards and snakes from around the world. The exhibit explores common myths and fosters a basic understanding of how reptiles fit into the history of life and the fabric of native environments. The exhibit, which ended April 6, was produced and toured by Clyde Peeling’s Reptiland. Rachel Rathmell, a caretaker for Clyde Peelings Reptiland, holds “Rico Suave,” a bearded dragon that stars in “Reptiles: The Beautiful & The Deadly” at The Wildlife Experience.

“Big River: The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” will bring Mark Twain’s American classic novel to the stage at Lone Tree Arts Center from April 24 to May 4. The musical, with book by William Hauptman, music and lyrics by Roger Miller, celebrates a tale that is part of our national fabric. With the recent publication of Mark Twain’s two-volume autobiography, there is renewed appreciation for this author who was known around the world in his day. This year marks the 130th anniversary of Twain’s coming-of-age story of a rebellious teenager. Director Randal Myler will stage this production with music direction by Dan Wheetman and choreography by Candy Brown. The two directors, who have staged a number of musical productions at the Denver Center Theatre in the past, brought “Hank Williams: Lost Highway” to Lone Tree last spring. The original production of “Big River” was in 1985-87 in New York, followed by a uniquely cast revival with deaf and hard-of-hearing actors in 2003. The story follows Huck as he tires of being told how to behave and runs away down the river with runaway slave Jim, developing an unusual friendship as they interact with assorted characters en route. Myler’s version incorporates a storytelling troupe traveling down the river, a ragtag group playing multiple musical instruments as they stop and share stories. Mack Shirilla leads the cast as Huck, in

WARRIORS WIN CITY TRACK MEET Arapahoe successfully defends boys, girls team titles By Tom Munds

RIGHT: Littleton’s Dave Bieber competes in the shot put event at the April 4 Littleton City Track Meet. Bieber finished 13th with a throw of 35 feet, 4 inches.

The Arapahoe High School track and field teams piled up points as they again won the boys and girls team titles April 4 at the Littleton City Track Meet. Littleton district teams at the meet included Arapahoe, Heritage and Littleton, and they were joined by three Jefferson County schools with Littleton mailing addresses in Chatfield, Columbine and Dakota Ridge. The Warriors took top honors in the boys division with 146 points, Heritage was second with 129 points and Littleton finished fifth with 66.5 points. In the competition for the girls team title, Arapahoe finished first with 140.5 points. Columbine was second with 90.5 points, edging Littleton by .5 points. Heritage and Chatfield tied for fourthplace with 81 points each. “This meet has a rich history and dates back to 1970,” said Arapahoe high jump coach Larry Lienemann. “I started coaching in ‘72 and it was just Arapahoe, Heritage and Littleton. The coaches took turns hosting the meet.” He said a few years ago the decision was made to expand and add the three Jefferson County schools. “This was a small meet in the early years,” Lienemann said. “Gradually, our schools grew, more kids came out for track and the city meet became larger. The meet doubled in size with the addition of the three Jeffco schools. (With) more kids at the meet … it is a more competitive meet.” The Arapahoe girls team won the 4x800 meter relay with Emily Wolff running the anchor leg. Wolff specializes in running the 800- and 1,600-meter races. “When I run the mile, I push to stay with the lead group on the first lap, then I just set my pace and maintain it,” she said. “The final two laps are a gut check to see what you can do. I push hard but try to have enough left for a sprint in the final 200 meters.” Wolff didn’t run the 1,600 at the city meet but said her goal is to run the event in less than 5:30. “My best time now is about a 5:40 so I have to cut 10 seconds to reach my goal,” she said. “It means working hard in training for the rest of the season but I am confident I can do it.” While Wolff was anchoring the relay win, across the field Mikey Koucherik was warming up for the boys pole vault event. “I think the biggest challenge is being upside down when you go over the bar. That isn’t a normal feeling,” said the Heritage senior, who is also competing in long jump for the first time this season. “The coach said I could jump far and I ought to try it,” he said. “It is a fun event because you get to run fast and see how far you can jump.” He said he is most proud of his teammates naming him team captain this season. “It feels great they picked me as captain,” he said. “I have always tried to be a leader by example.” Koucherik said he plans to go to work, probably going out of state to get a job on a cattle ranch, after graduation. “I am a country boy who likes to work,” he said. “I love horses and I have worked cattle so I know what it is like. I think it is my kind of job because I just can’t see me sitting inside behind a desk all day.” Track continues on Page 20

Prior to the start of the Heritage Invitational girls golf tournament March 31 at The Golf Club at Ravenna, several coaches felt that 85 would be a good score. Cool, windy conditions on the tough course resulted in soaring scores. The 5,654-yard layout from the umber tees located in Waterton Canyon has 11 bunkers, tricky greens and side hill lies on almost every fairway. There were 75 golfers who competed in the tournament and the average score was 105.2 but there were 12 golfers that did manage to shoot 85 or lower. Mary Weinstein of Regis Jesuit took medalist honors with a 3-over-par 74 while Arapahoe’s Hannah Wood and senior Samantha Barker of Highlands Ranch came home with rounds of 77 to finish tied for second place. Heritage sophomore Delaney Benson had a 79 to take fourth. Wood, a senior who will be playing next season for the University of Oklahoma, was 3-under after the front nine but faded on the backside. “It’s a mental thing,” said Wood. “The

wind was the thing. There are a lot of blind shots on the back nine. It was my second time playing the course and it was hard for me to remember the back nine. I could have done a lot better.” Barker recorded a triple bogey on her first hole but recovered and notched a respectable score. “Sam played well,” said Samantha’s father and Highlands Ranch coach James Barker. “She got off to a bad start but righted the ship. She missed a bunch of short putts or it could have been a really good day. “She said she missed five 5-footers and some of those were for birdies. It could have been a great day but it was still a good day. It was a tough day to play golf.” Benson may have had the shot of the day with a hole-in-one on the 104-yard third hole. “I hit my gap wedge,” she said. “It kind of just bounced and rolled right in. It was pretty cool. The wind was pretty strong so I had to club up. That was my first hole-inone. I’m pretty happy. I had a good round.” Regis captured the team title with a 240 total of the lowest three scores recorded. Arapahoe was second at 253. Rock Canyon, led by Michelle Romano’s 87, was third with 264 points followed by Heritage and Highlands Ranch. Andrea Ballou of Valor Christian carded an 82 to pace the Eagles to a sixth place finish.

the technique but I have cut four seconds off my time so far this season.” She said the challenge to being a hurdler is coordination. “It is all about timing,” she said. “It takes time to learn to measure your pace so you take the right number of steps and go over the hurdle in stride. My goal is to run the 100 hurdles in 17 seconds. That means I have to cut another second off my time but I feel I can do it.”

No foolin’: Game ends in tie Neither Littleton nor Castle View score in league soccer contest By Tom Munds

tmunds@coloradocommunitymedia.com Near misses on offense coupled with wall-like play on defense resulted in Littleton and Castle View battling to a scoreless tie in double overtime in the April 1 Continental League girls soccer game at Littleton Public Schools Stadium. “It was a frustrating game for us because we didn’t do what we usually do,” Castle View Coach Perry Gantz said after the game. “We didn’t control the ball and we didn’t use our speed. We just kicked the ball around, so we ended with a 0-0 tie.” Littleton Coach Terry Banfield said the match didn’t end like he wished but added that it was an exciting game. “We got off to a good start this season but have been having a tough time against very tough league competition,” he said. “We hoped to get something out of this game knowing we were facing a very good soccer team. We didn’t get a win but we’ll take the tie because it came with the valuable experience of playing against a very talented soccer team.” The tie was the first non-win on the Castle View record as it was 3-0-1 overall and 1-0-1 in league after the game. The scoreless time meant Littleton’s record stood at 3-2-1 overall and 0-2-1 in league. The contest also signaled the beginning of the heart of the league season for both teams. The Sabercats slipped to 3-1-1 and 1-1-1 with a 4-3 loss to Regis on April 4 and were scheduled to play Legend on April 8. Castle View then travels to Douglas County Stadium April 10 for a game against Highlands Ranch and is on the road at Heritage on April 15.

Littleton’s Julie Stauffer grimmaces as she heads the ball up the field in the Lions’ April 1 soccer game against Castle View. The teams battled to a 0-0 tie. Littleton was scheduled to play Heritage on April 8. The Lions are at Shea Stadium against Rock Canyon on April 10 and return to Littleton Public School Stadium April 15 for a game against Mountain Vista. The opening minutes of the April 1 game set the tone of the 80 minutes of regulation time and the two 10-minute overtime periods. Littleton pressed the attack. Castle View’s defense turned the attack aside, won the battle for possession of the ball so the Sabercats could mount an attack of their own. The high-speed, back-and-forth action continued throughout the contest. Both teams put a number of shots on goal but not into the net. Some shots sailed high and a couple hit the crossbar. When shots were on target, Castle View’s goalkeeper Danielle Williams and Littleton’s goalie Shayna Watkins each made leaping de-

Photos by Tom Munds flections and diving saves to preserve the scoreless tie. As he assessed the remainder of the season, Banfield said the Littleton team is a mix of veterans and players from the junior varsity. “We graduated eight, had a player move and another is hurt so we had 10 spots to fill on our roster,” he said. “I feel our team strength is our defense and our center midfield. Shayna is strong in goal for us. She is a year-round soccer goalie and the third year as our starting goalie.” The Lions have spread scoring around so far this season with eight different players credited with putting the ball into the net. Abby Newby has a pair of goals to lead the team in that category while teammate Julie Stauffer has scored one goal but leads the team in assists with four. Gantz also assessed this year’s team. He said the Sabercats are a young team this

season. He noted he had five freshmen on the field at one point in the game against Littleton. “It doesn’t look like it on the scoreboard today but typically our strength is our ability to score goals,” the coach said after the game. “We have good passing skills and good speed to push the ball deep into the opponent’s end of the field.” Team statistics show Julie Macklin as the scoring leader with four goals and four assists while teammate Kim Bourelle has scored a pair of goals and dished off a pair of assists. Gantz noted Williams is playing very well for the Sabercats at goalkeeper. “Danielle was a field player for us and converted to goalie this season,” he said. “She plays an aggressive style that has worked well for us and strengthens our defense.”
