Muster will be last for Littleton Fire Rescue As absorption by South Metro approaches, event is victory lap for historic department

IF YOU GO

“I’ve got pretty mixed emotions,” Baker said. “Littleton Fire was formed in 1890 so it’s a loss. But at the same time it’s a new chapter, and our hope is to continue the traditions that made LFR a premier organization in Colorado.” Littleton Fire’s history includes a number of firsts, said Mark Gorman, who retired from LFR in 2015 after 36 years with the department. “Littleton was the first in Colorado to staff paramedics,” Gorman said. “We were the first to onboard five-inch hose for supply lines, up from the old two and a half inchers, which really improved our capabilities. Swedish Hospital selected us to train their paramedics.” Gorman spearheaded the restoration of Littleton’s 1914-vintage truck, which will lead the parade. The parade’s antique trucks are pretty special, Gorman said, because of the difficulty and expense of keeping vehicles that old and rare running. The parade and muster are a great way to connect with the community, Gorman said. “I hope people take away that these are people who really care about your safety,” Gorman said. “People are

At Littleton’s annual Fire Truck Parade & Muster, the parade will start at 9 a.m. on June 16 at South Bannock Street and Littleton Boulevard, and proceed west toward downtown Littleton. The parade will turn south on Curtice Street, and wind up in the large parking lot on the north end of the Arapahoe Community College campus at 5900 South Santa Fe Drive.

When Littleton’s annual Fire Truck Parade & Muster rolls down Main Street at 9 a.m. on June 16, it will be the last parade where trucks that say “Littleton” on the side won’t be antiques. The parade features trucks big, small, high-tech and vintage, from fire departments around the Denver metro area. The parade winds up at Arapahoe Community College for a day of live demonstrations and a chance to check out some of the area’s coolest firefighting gear. The procession will “muster” at ACC at 10 a.m., where Littleton Fire Rescue will demonstrate a mock car wreck rescue, ripping open a car with the Jaws of Life. Kids can participate in bucket brigade races, try on firefighters’ bunker gear, and aim highpressure hoses. South Metro Fire Rescue, a large

Being part of Littleton Fire’s final muster is bittersweet considering Littleton’s legendary firefighting legacy, Baker said.

critical of government, as they should be, but a lot of time and preparation goes into keeping citizens safe. We’re proud to get a chance to demonstrate that.” Baker said he intends for South Metro and Littleton’s firefighters to keep the parade and muster going. “I want to reassure people that we’ll continue to support and expand on what they’ve enjoyed in the past,” Baker said. “The same brave men and women who have cared for them and their families will still be there in the future. They might just have a different T-shirt on.” Littleton Fire Rescue Chief Chris Armstrong and department spokeswoman Jackie Erwin did not respond to requests for comment. Organizers stressed that active-duty fire equipment is subject to being called out on emergencies during the event, and reminded parents to pack sunscreen, hats and a change of clothes in case kids get soaked. The event, now in its 33rd year, is hosted by Mile High Hook & Ladder — an antique fire truck club — and Schomp Automotive. Fundraising efforts at the event support Children’s Hospital Colorado’s Burn Center.

changed. I really miss Cinderella City Mall in Englewood. We have the outlet malls, but it’s just not the same. I worked there, I hung out there — it was the place to be. My young life there was like the movie “Fast Times at Ridgemont High.” It was safe. If you couldn’t find your kid, they were probably at the mall. Change happens, and I accept that.

It ran its course — it’s really hard on your body to be a masseuse. I did it when I was young and I don’t regret it. There’s a lot of bad reputation around massage, and that’s a hard obstacle to overcome, but it’s important to keep your body and mind healthy. I still get massages myself, every month or so. As a society we’re not open to touch, even though our bodies are geared toward it. It helps you relax, get in touch with yourself and slow down.

Sterling Ranch landscape design protects water, saves residents money When it comes to the soil and everything that grows and blooms in the Sterling Ranch master-planned community, great thought and care went into protecting water resources and saving its future residents money. In 2011, five years before construction started, Sterling Ranch visionaries began studying the soil, native plants and water conversation best practices across the landscape industry. These studies came through a partnership with the native land experts at the Denver Botanic Gardens. Larry Vickerman, director of Chatfield Farms for Denver Botanic Gardens, said the partnership has far exceeded his expectations, as the dedication from Sterling Ranch developers to not only protect, but add value to the land is truly a “template” for other Colorado housing developers to follow. “When it comes to saying they want to protect water, Sterling Ranch not only talks the talk, but they walk the walk,” he said. “That’s what has impressed me the most as we’ve continued working with them.” Harold Smethills, founder of the growing community in Douglas County south of Littleton, said Sterling Ranch made a serious commitment to water sustainability from the very beginning. “We are doing good, we are saving water and we are saving residents on water costs,” he said. “More and more communities are integrating water sustainability into land-use plans, and we hope to continue to inspire others.” It all began with studying the soil of the land, Smethills explained. Choosing an expert from Chatfield Farms was the logical choice because they are located near the development and have the most knowledge of what is sustainable in the particular

Five years before construction started at Sterling Ranch, developers teamed up with the Denver Botanic Gardens to create a test garden for the studying of plant life on the building site. This effort ultimately rendered a list of 150 different plant varieties that are approved for use in the community as a result of their fit with the site’s climate and soil conditions.

The process started with the creation of a five-year test garden off of Titan Road. “We wanted plants that were attractive and appealing, but wouldn’t require much water, and wouldn’t die in a drought,” Smethills said. “Working with the Botanic Gardens allowed us to understand the soil and created a set of landscape standards, which we assist

our residents in implementing with the help of instructional classes and inspecitions aimed at ensuring landscape success for the benefit of the whole community.” Taking into consideration quality of life issues, Smethills said they also focused on plants and concepts that would be bird friendly. Eventually, the study rendered a list of more than 150 plant variations that are not only planted in the common areas and roundabouts surrounding the development, but also are set as established guidelines for Sterling Ranch residents to use in designing their own yard landscapes. “To have these principles Sterling Ranch developed in a test garden, and have them carried into individual lots is incredible,” Vickerman said. “This approach is truly a selling point for home buyers. Today’s homeowners want to protect water supplies, they want native plants, and they are more environmentally aware.”

www.sterlingranchcolorado.com

As Sterling Ranch continues to grow over the next 20 years, it is estimated that the development’s homes will use a third less water than Douglas County historically has required used. Spring’s Showers Make Way for Summer’s Flowers The Sterling Ranch community is aiming even higher, as it is also currently undergoing a rainwater harvesting pilot project. This project, the first of its kind in Colorado at a community scale, is slated to even further supply the water needed to grow the site’s landscape vision, ultimately providing 40 percent of the public landscape’s irrigation supply. The Sterling Ranch Visitor Center is open seven days a week, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. There you can learn more about the community’s amenities and find a map to help you and your family visit the 21 model homes currently on the site.

Democratic candidates for Congressional District 6 Q&A with Jason Crow

City or town of residence: I’ve lived in Stapleton (Denver neighborhood) since 2008 and in Aurora since 2017. Profession: I’m an attorney whose work focuses on legal compliance and regulatory issues for businesses of all sizes. Related elected-office or public-service experience: I’m a former Army Ranger who served three tours of duty in Afghanistan and Iraq, where I earned a Bronze Star. I served on the Colorado Board of Veterans Affairs for five years. Why are you seeking this office? I’ve always gone where the fight is. That mentality brought me to Iraq and Afghanistan to defend our country, and it’s what I want to bring to Washington as our rights and freedoms are under attack. U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman has had a decade to fight for our district, and Crow he has come up short. What makes you the most qualified person for the position? I’ve never run for public office before, but I do know something about serving others. My roots in this community, my military experience and the hundreds of hours I’ve spent mentoring veterans and helping them adjust to civilian life have given me the perspective I need to put Coloradans first. I also played a meaningful role in bringing the new VA hospital to Aurora. A generation of politicians has gone to Washington to fight for themselves, and that self-interested spirit gets in the way of bold thinking. This campaign is about ideas, not political experience, and I’m excited to share mine with the district.

What would your top two priorities be if elected? Reforming our nation’s campaign-finance system and leveling the playing field for working families. I’ve pledged to not take a dime from corporate PACs (political-action committees). I believe big money has corrupted our politicians and stripped power away from where it belongs: with Americans who want a government that works for them. Ensuring working families get a fair shake in this economy is more important than ever — especially after the Republican tax plan gave huge handouts to special interests and big-money political donors. Wages and benefits haven’t kept up with cost of living ... We need a fighter for equal pay (and) higher wages. What else should the voters know about you? I’m the first parent to run against Mike Coffman. I know what it’s like to take care of a sick kid, budget for college and worry about guns in our schools and on our streets. I’m in this campaign because all our kids deserve to inherit a safe, more equitable society.

Q&A with Levi Tillemann

City or town of residence: Denver, five years Profession: Co-founder of In This Together Media (book publisher).

We have elected the same people over and over again but have yet to figure out how to pass health care for all, comprehensive-immigration reform with a path to citizenship or education policies that benefit the people, not corporations. We need new voices and a Rao new approach in Congress. What makes you the most qualified person for the position? I graduated from the University of Virginia and New York University School of Law. I clerked on the 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia, one notch below the Supreme Court … I built a company from the ground-up by working and collaborating with a diverse group of people, bringing everyone into the planning, building and execution of everything that we do. As a brown woman, I have walked through life feeling, many times, disenfranchised and ignored. I know what it’s like to not feel represented or have your best interests served.

What would your top two priorities be if elected? My platform since day one has focused on getting money out of politics. It’s time to (reverse) Citizens United (2010 Supreme Court case) and not be beholden to corporations but people. I will fight to pass a clean DREAM Act and pass comprehensive-immigration reform with a path to citizenship. CD1 is in the midst of a housing crisis. I will work with the Department of Housing and Urban Development to find dollars to help mitigate this problem. We need common sense gun control now. Thoughts and prayers are not working. I will fight to pass universal health care for all. What else should the voters know about you? Voters in CD1 have a choice this election. I’ve heard you loud and clear, and if you vote for me, I will bring your interests back to Washington. That is my promise to you. The status quo gave us (President) Trump. It’s time for a change. Vote for Saira Rao for Congress.

Man dies after being hit, dragged by bus near downtown Littleton STAFF REPORT

A man died after being struck and dragged by an RTD bus near downtown Littleton the afternoon of June 7, Littleton police said. Patrick Tshudy, a 31-year-old from Greenwood Village, was hit just after 3 p.m. and dragged by the bus from near the crosswalk on the north end of the Littleton Downtown Light Rail Station almost seven blocks to the intersection of West Littleton Boulevard and South Windermere Avenue, said Littleton Police Department spokesman Rick Redmond. The bus stopped after a car following

behind it saw a body emerge from beneath it, after which the driver of the car swerved around the bus and stopped in front of it to alert the driver, Redmond said. Police declined to identify the bus driver. The driver was cooperating with investigators, and it is unknown whether he or she will face charges, Redmond said. The bus was traveling RTD’s Route 66, which starts at Arapahoe Community College and largely follows Arapahoe Road to its intersection with South Parker Road. Roughly 15 passengers were on the bus at the time, Redmond said.

Q&A with Donna Lynne

City or town of residence: Denver, previously Evergreen (Colorado since 2005) Profession: Lieutenant governor and chief operating officer of Colorado. Related elected-office or public-service experience: I have worked in both the public and private sector for the past 42 years. I worked for the City of New York in many senior-level positions, including senior vice president for the safety net hospital in New York and was also the director of operations in New York City. Why are you seeking this office? This state needs a governor who understands how to manage billiondollar budgets and who is willing to do the hard work to get things done. I have been to all 64 counties and visited with working families who are struggling to afford health care and housing. I have the experience Lynne to tackle these tough issues. What makes you the most qualified person for the position? I have spent the last 42 years working in both the private and public sectors. I earned a doctorate in public health and spent 11 years as the executive vice president of Kaiser Permanente managing 16,000 employees and a $9 billion budget. I fought back against Washington last year to protect access to health care for 76,000 children from working families. I worked very hard to increase our state’s investment in education, transportation and broadband this past session. We need a strong governor to stand up for our public lands and who will protect our water and wild spaces. I will fight for Colorado. What would your top two priorities be if elected? My top two priorities will be reduc-

ing the cost of health care and affordable housing. I support universal health care but feel we must address the outsized profits the health care and pharmaceutical industries are making on the backs of working families. We must reduce those profits if we want to significantly reduce health-care costs and expand access. The lack of affordable housing is impacting families across Colorado. I will treat that lack of access like the crisis it is. I will immediately create a Cabinet-level position to begin working with cities and counties across the state to address this issue. The governor can and should be a leader to ensure everyone has access to affordable housing. What else should the voters know about you? My parents both served in the Navy during World War II — so I have appreciation for our veterans and their value to our communities. I paid my own way through college, and I raised three kids as a single mom. I know what families are going through because I have lived it. Throughout my career, I have been a consensus-builder and problem-solver. That’s what I will do as your governor.

Q&A with Jared Polis

City or town of residence: Boulder native; lived there most of my life. Profession: Entrepreneur, florist and public servant. Founder of ProFlowers.com, TechStars, Patriot Boot Camp, American Information Systems, Bluemountain.com. Related elected-office or public-service experience: U.S. congressman, former chair of the Colorado State Board of Education, founder of the New America School and the Academy of Urban Learning. Why are you seeking this office? With the federal government moving in the wrong direction, it’s up to the states to lead. Right here in Colorado, we can move forward with a bold vision to build a great public education system, unleash our state’s renewable energy potential and build an economy that works for everyone. What makes you the most qualified person for the position? I’ve successfully worked across the aisle to solve problems for Colorado and accomplish progressive goals during my time in Congress. That’s the type of leadership Coloradans can expect from me as their governor. I led the way in rewriting No Child Left Behind to better serve our schools and our children and got results in building affordable workforce housing for my constituents. And I was Polis proud to work alongside President Barack Obama toward passage of the Affordable Care Act, which expanded health care for hundreds of thousands of Coloradans. What would your top two priorities be if elected? I’m running on a bold vision of bringing free full-day universal preschool and kindergarten to every Colorado child, making Colorado 100 percent powered by renewable energy and providing universal, affordable health care to every Coloradan. What else should the voters know about you? I’m the dad of two amazing kids, I started schools for new immigrants and homeless youth, and I’m the only former florist currently serving in Congress!

Republican candidates for governor Q&A with Greg Lopez

City or town of residence: Elizabeth, for 21 years. Profession: Small-business owner, restaurant and consulting. Related elected-office or public-service experience: Mayor of Parker, 1992-96; President of board of directors for Denver Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, 2004-05; Colorado director of U.S. Small Business Administration, 2008-14. Why are you seeking this office? As governor, I will protect, preserve and promote the various economies and the different ways of life that make Colorado the great state that it is. I truly understand that there are 64 counties in the state and that it’s about all of Lopez us — not just some of us. What makes you the most qualified person for the position? I sat on the board of E-470 and the Denver Regional Council of Governments, so I know transportation, water, air quality, economic and regional issues. I am the former Colorado director of the U.S. Small Business Administration. I understand that small business is the heart and soul of every community. I served in numerous education committees and economic-development councils. I know how to address growth and the elements that impact the quality of life in any community. What would your top two priorities be if elected? Water and education. Colorado

is a state where “life” is written in water. The future of our state lies in the balance as we look for ways to manage our water resources to accommodate the growth in state population, agricultural uses and recreational uses. We need to bring back vocational and technical training back into the high schools because not everyone can afford to or wants to go to college. High-school graduates need to be job-ready on day one, not college-ready. You can achieve the “American dream” without having to go to college. What else should the voters know about you?

Littleton City Council explores convening youth council BY DAVID GILBERT DGILBERT@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

CALM AFTER THE STORM

Littleton City Council wants to know what young people think. A plan under consideration by city council would create a group called the Next Generation Advisory Committee, to be composed of young people who would comment on issues affecting the city’s future. The committee’s aims were outlined at a June 5 city council study session by Councilmember Kyle Schlachter, who is spearheading the effort. According to a draft of the group’s bylaws, the goals would be “to provide insight from the 17-34 year old demographics’ perspective on council policy initiatives. Members explore topics that are of interest to the young professionals, including education, employment and economic opportunity, access to state and local government services, housing, the environment, behavioral and physical health, substance use, poverty, and increased youth civic engagement.” The committee would consist of seven to 11 members, including three current students of Littleton Public Schools, one current student of Arapahoe Community College, and three to seven at-large members not enrolled in LPS or ACC but who live or work in Littleton. The group would sunset after two years for re-evaluation by city council. Young people are something of a paradox for city government, Schlachter said, as their concerns and needs are of vital importance to ensure a prosperous and functional future for the city, though they are often among the leastengaged age demographics at council meetings. Furthermore, cities should be marketing themselves to millennials, Schlachter said, because the increasing trend of working remotely means that young people are often unshackled from the constraints of working on-site and can choose where they live with greater freedom. Expecting young people to bring their concerns to council is passé, Schlachter said. “City council meetings are passive engagement,” Schlachter said. “Inviting comment on an issue is reactive engage-

ment. We need to be more proactive.” Councilmember Carol Fey countered that previous engagement activities have already identified significant issues that cross age demographics, and wondered what else could be expected to be identified by a youth council. The most important issues across the board were affordable housing and traffic congestion, Fey said. “They come to us with these things, and we don’t deliver, then what?” Fey said. “Maybe (young people) don’t feel welcome (at council meetings), but I think a lot of citizens don’t, so maybe we need to work to seem more approachable.” The creation of such a committee could give the impression that young people were getting special treatment, Fey said, adding that if council created the committee, it would be only fair to create committees for any other demographic that wanted one. “If the homeless want special access — I can’t imagine them getting that organized — but if they do, we need to do it if we do it for this group.” City council doesn’t know what it doesn’t know about the concerns of young people, said Councilmember Patrick Driscoll. “Things we’re not thinking about, (young people) already are,” Driscoll said. “When we talk about parking problems, how is that impacted if 75 percent of millennials are thinking they want to live without a car?” The idea of convening committees to draw insight from important stakeholder groups is nothing new for Littleton, said Mayor Debbie Brinkman, citing previous committees composed of business owners. “Where we don’t do our job is where we assume things,” Brinkman said. “I like the idea of hearing more from the under-40 set. That’s the next workforce… As we look at the budget, what do we invest in? What should our priorities be? Getting input from people who will be the core of the community is important.” City council will continue to debate the proposed committee’s merits and functions in coming months, Brinkman said.

A 33-year-old Aurora man who went on a carjacking and robbery spree that spanned the Denver metro area in 2016 was convicted of numerous crimes on June 6. Tremaine Speer was found guilty of 17 counts, including aggravated robbery, conspiracy to commit aggravated robbery and second-degree assault. Speer’s crime spree consisted of seven incidents in July 2016 throughout Littleton, Aurora, Denver, Commerce City and Westminster. Speer was wearing an electronic ankle monitor at the time, having been paroled from

prison only weeks before. Speer committed several armed carjackings, including one in which he hit a woman in the face with a handgun in the parking lot of the Littleton Museum, and Speer another of an Aurora woman who had pulled into her driveway with her young son in the car. “Without question, our community is safer with this serial carjacker and career criminal behind bars,” District Attorney George Brauchler said in a statement. “Speer is one of the fundamental reasons we have prisons.” Speer’s sentencing is set for July 25.

Block party kicks off summer with good vibes BY DAVID GILBERT DGILBERT@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

A

sweltering day gave way to one of the coolest nights of the year as Littleton’s annual Main Street Block Party filled downtown with bands, performers and partiers. Sword swallowers and fire eaters drew shocked faces June 9. Bands rocked from stages stretching from near Ned Kelly’s Irish Pub on the east end down to near the Melting Pot on the west side of downtown. Kids enjoyed the make-your-own-

snow-cone booth. Two fireworks shows, one at twilight and another to wrap things up just before 11 p.m., lit up the night. “The good vibes here are really infectious,” said a young man who goes by Alex the Storyteller. Alex set out a hat for donations as he belted out story-songs, some of his own creation, along Main Street, having only recently arrived as he roams the country. “I sing about happy and positive things, about people coming together. This seems like a natural place for that kind of attitude.”

Grace Ramsey of Borrillo Entertainment scolds her pet dinosaur (actually an animatronic suit) as he gets into the trash.

Legal experts weigh in on Supreme Court bakery ruling Narrowness of decision makes predicting implications difficult

many levels, but the court’s decision is actually pretty narrow,” she said. “The judges focused in on the actions of the Colorado Civil Rights Commission and didn’t really address whether there was discrimination on the baker’s part.” In its 7-2 decision in the Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission case, the Supreme Court decided that the commission’s actions violated the Free Exercise Clause. Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor were the two dissenting voices in the ruling issued on June 4. Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote the majority opinion for the court. In July 2012 Phillips declined to make a custom wedding cake for same-sex couple Charlie Craig and David Mullins, citing his religious beliefs. After his refusal to bake the wedding cake, the couple filed a complaint

The U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling in the Masterpiece Cakeshop case was decided in favor of Lakewood baker Jack Phillips by a larger margin than many people expected. There’s a reason for that, explains Barbara Koehler, lecturer at Metropolitan State University of Denver’s Criminal Justice and Criminology department. She has a Juris Doctor and was in private practice for 30 years. “This is such a complex case on so

with the Colorado Civil Rights Commission stating that Phillips violated the state’s public accommodations law that specifically prohibits discrimination based on sexual orientation. The commission ruled against Phillips in May 2014 and the appeals court upheld the decision in May 2015. To understand the legal side of the issue, Colorado Community Media spoke to Koehler; Norman Provizer, another Metro State professor and director of the Golda Meir Center for Political Leadership and director of Leadership Studies; and Craig Konnoth, an associate professor at the University of Colorado’s Colorado Law department, who wrote an amicus brief for the case for the Colorado Civil Rights Commission. The following are key points that came up in CCM’s discussions with Koehler, Provizer and Konnoth:

• The court’s decision came down to the belief that Colorado’s Civil Rights Commission did not consider Phillips’ case free of religious bias. As Kennedy wrote: “The delicate question of when the free exercise of his religion must yield to an otherwise valid exercise of state power needed to be determined in an adjudication in which religious hostility on the part of the State itself would not be a factor in the balance the State sought to reach.” • The decision was made in part because of a comment made by former Civil Rights Commission member Diann Rice after the ruling against Phillips had been made in 2014. “Freedom of religion and religion has been used to justify all kinds of discrimination throughout history,

Lines stretch from the entrance to SeaQuest Interactive Aquarium, Southwest Plaza’s newest family-oriented attraction. DAVID GILBERT

Southwest Plaza evolves with ‘experiential’ attractions Aquarium is latest addition to mall’s day-out offerings BY DAVID GILBERT DGILBERT@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

The indoor malls of yesteryear that once played host to department stores and shoe stores, with food courts and dark corridors, are largely gone. In their place have arisen mixed-use outdoor lifestyle hubs like Streets at SouthGlenn in Centennial, which replaced the longstruggling Southglenn Mall. Southwest Plaza, in southern Jefferson County at West Bowles Avenue and South Wadsworth Boulevard, however, is banking on a new strategy for an old-school indoor mall: creating a place worthy of a full day out, with attractions like the newly-opened SeaQuest Interactive Aquarium. “We’ve got to be more open-minded about malls and what goes into them, and anything is fair game,” said Greg Sims, Southwest Plaza’s general manager. “Indoor malls were dying because owners thought ‘if you build it, they will come,’ and you don’t have to do anything else. But you have to keep evolving. You need ownership that’s willing

to adjust and be flexible. Those that are stuck are stuck. Those willing to break out of the box are going to be here.” Southwest Plaza underwent a massive $70 million renovation that wrapped up in 2015, which sought to reinvent the stuffy indoor mall design left over from the hair band era. Aside from significant infrastructure upgrades, the renovation pushed the mall’s storefronts farther back, creating more airy walkways and better lines of sight. But the more fundamental change is coming to fulfillment, with the mall now boasting a slew of attractions beyond chewy pretzels and Orange Julius. Besides the aquarium, Southwest Plaza now hosts Round 1, a bowling alley and arcade; Yoga Pod, a fitness and yoga studio; fast-casual eats like Mod Market; and sit-down dining like a gleaming Cheesecake Factory. The mall, with 1.2 million square feet of floor space and 94 storefronts, is proving to be resilient and versatile, even in the face of a retail landscape shifting increasingly online. “We’ll work with retail while it’s trying to figure itself out,” Sims said. “But we’ve got other options now too.” SEE SOUTHWEST, P39

I was about to take a sip when I noticed a label on the cup with some suspicious looking words: “Three pumps, no water.” “What’s this?” I said. “Uh.” Iced tea used to be iced tea. But not anymore.

as if I just woke up after a dream about Ethel Merman. The dog went out through the dog door. A painting fell off the wall. I held my head in my hands and said, “You too?” “Yes.” We ruin everything. At least that’s the way I look at it. Oreos used to be Oreos. I thought I came home with Oreos, but somewhere between the grocery store and my kitchen counter they turned into Swedish Fish Oreos with Double-Stuf. The complete list of Oreos now on the market sounds like I made up half of it: Mystery Oreos, Cherry Cola Oreos, and you can even get No-Oreos Oreos. No-Oreos Oreos are just the “Stuf.”

track record of crossing political divides. As a state senator, Mike built broad coalitions to move Colorado forward, passing over 100 bills with bipartisan support. Mike has also been a leader on gun safety. Recently, he went to an N.R.A. meeting where 3 out of 4 NRA members he talked to said they would support Red Flag laws. Strip down the narrative meant to divide us, what we find is that we need a governor who can work across the aisle and get things done for all of Colorado. That candidate is Mike Johnston!

enough to receive unconditional love from them, that is wonderful and amazing. But the unconditional love I am referring to and that is such an awesome feeling is the unconditional love for them as their father. Regardless of the mistakes and poor choices they may have made, and despite the anger we may have felt or angst that they put us through, as a father there is just no greater feeling than loving your children and loving them unconditionally. As I look back on my own poor choices, mistakes and errors in judgment over my entire life, I have even greater love and appreciation for my children and for their drama and mistakes, as most times they were nothing in comparison to my own. I’ll bet you can appreciate that too. There are many among us who have lost a child, and I cannot even imagine what that must feel like. Some were lost to accidents, some to illnesses, and

Chocolate used to be chocolate. Pizza used to be pizza. Potato chips used to be potato chips. When it comes to hot dogs, I hate to tell you. A hot dog is mustard and onions.

The torture of listening to coffee orders and iced tea orders might turn into one of my Ethel Merman screams. Years ago, I went into one and asked for a small cup of coffee, black. (Of course, they don’t sell small, medium and large; instead, there are embarrassing code names.)

Columbine shooting happened. Although my children were very young, I still remember the horror I felt. I thought nothing could ever again happen that would be that bad. Americans would never allow this type of traumatic event to occur another time. Unfortunately, years of continued school shootings showed I was very sadly wrong. But for the first time in a long time, I’m also seeing hope. I see it most of all in the students Marching for their Lives, who are reminding us all what a great movement looks like. And I’m also seeing it in the candidates who have been willing to step up and run for office. If we’re going to finally stop these senseless tragedies, we need leaders who will stand up to the NRA and protect our kids. That’s why I’m supporting Phil Weiser for attorney general. Phil has taken a strong stand to ban bump stocks, enforce limits on magazine sizes, and get a “red flag” law to keep guns away from dangerous people.

some to other circumstances such as drugs or alcohol or depression. My heart breaks for those of you who have had to experience that as it truly must be so difficult on days such as Mother’s Day or Father’s Day. And here is where that unconditional love comes in again. Pain and grieving are very real, yet so is unconditional love and finding a way to focus on a memory, a beautiful memory, a smile, a laugh, or just all the good and happy times. A father’s love finds its way to forgiveness and finds its way to unconditional love. Father’s Day is a special day to be honored and remembered as a father and as a dad, but it is also a day to honor and remember the people who call us father, dad, pop, or papa. As always, I would love to hear your story at gotonorton@gmail.com, and when we can experience that feeling of unconditional love for our children, it really will be a better than good week.

The girl said, “We’re out of coffee.” I looked around: the place was packed with people drinking something, and employees were handing cups of something though the driveup window. “What’s all of that?” “Flavored coffees. Foamed coffees. Sprinkled, dusted, and twigged coffees. We’re brewing a pot of black coffee for freaks like you. Ready in a minute.” (Minor exaggeration, to make a point.) As a writer, I rely upon modifiers. But some things — coffee, iced tea, and hot dogs — don’t need them. If absolutely necessary, hold the onions.

Additionally, he has the legal and leadership skills to protect our kids from gun violence. Phil will bring that experience to the attorney general’s office. He served as a law clerk to Justice Ginsburg on the Supreme Court and worked in the Justice Department for both Presidents Clinton and Obama. And as the former gean and leader of CU’s law school, Phil brings both management experience and an ability to work across the aisle to this position. Please join me in supporting Phil Weiser for Colorado attorney general and vote in the primary on June 26. Kathryn Holland Littleton Weiser deserves your vote As a life-long Coloradan, I believe that we need an attorney general who brings legal expertise, proven leadership and the courage to stand up for our environment, businesses and values.

Among worthy candidates, all having demonstrated a commitment to public service, Phil Weiser offers the best experience and policies to serve as Colorado attorney general. Phil has unmatched expertise, having clerked for Supreme Court justices, taught law, established the Colorado legal center that helped define net neutrality, and advised President Barack Obama. Phil has executed in challenging positions of responsibility, having managed the Justice Department’s Antitrust Division and led the University of Colorado Law School as dean. Phil has distinguished himself as a candidate committed to defending Colorado laws as written, building partnerships to strengthen our communities, and advocating for all Coloradoans. Choosing to vote is always wise. For Colorado Attorney General, I’m choosing Phil Weiser. Matt Dority Highlands Ranch

Bringing the concert experience home

House shows are simple, low-impact concerts that are hosted in spaces — either indoor or outdoor — where musicians can perform. That can even be a kitchen area. PHOTOS COURTESY OF LYMLIGHT

House shows are growing in popularity for fans, musicians BY CLARKE READER CREADER@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

S

ometimes, the best experience a person can have with music is when it’s performed live. But going to concerts can be a pricey endeavor, plus there’s the cost of getting a drink or two, dealing with the crowd, and fighting for a good spot. Those in search of a way to experience a different kind of live music should consider a growing trend — one closer to home. “Even at small clubs, there’s still a kind of invisible force field between you and the audience, because you’re on stage and they’re not,” said Kyle Hauser, a Berklee School of Music graduate and former touring musician. “But playing a house show allows you to make a genuine connection with people in a way you

House shows are an increasingly popular way for musicians to spare themselves many of the costs that come with playing venues and connect with audiences. can’t otherwise.” House shows are exactly what they sound like — people open up their homes to anywhere from 10 to 30 people for a special performance in their living room, backyard, or any other large space they have.

“What a great way to see live music house shows are,” said Daniel Prewitt, a Morrison resident who has hosted several such events in recent years. “There’s no more intimate way to experience music than with just a few other people in an environment like a home.” As these concerts are so small, there’s not a lot in the way of promotional materials — it mostly comes down to word of mouth and friends of friends. Hauser said there’s a kind of informal list of people who host house shows shared between musicians, but Andrea McKee, founder of Lymlight, aims to make the process easier for both musicians and hosts alike. “Lymlight is an online platform that connects performers with people who want to host shows,” McKee explained. “As a singersongwriter myself, I had a hard time finding gigs where I could play my own material and where I wouldn’t feel like background music. But when I heard about house shows, I loved the energy they provide.” SEE CONCERT, P22

PrideFest returning for 44th year

A

lthough it has grown by leaps and bounds in recent years, Denver’s PrideFest can trace its roots all the way back to 1975. And this year’s event is going to be the biggest yet. “We’re going to have more than 200 exhibitors and three stagesworth of entertainment,” said COMING Fuller, vice ATTRACTIONS Rex president of communications and corporate giving with The GLBT Community Center of Colorado, which has been organizing the festival for 28 years. “At this free festival we Clarke Reader have a lot going on, including areas for families, youth and seniors.” Denver PrideFest, the region’s largest celebration of LGBT Pride, returns to Civic Center, 101 W. 14th Ave., on Saturday and Sunday, June 16 and 17.

Painters’ views of Littleton being displayed at Depot Gallery reveals what 50 artists saw as they recorded cityscapes BY SONYA ELLINGBOE SELLINGBOE@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

On May 30 and June 1, readers may have observed assorted folks — wearing a straw or other hat — paintbrush in hand and a palette of bright paints at the ready, as they worked to capture a scene on Littleton’s Main street, at Aspen Grove, in surrounding streets, yards, parks and gardens … They were among the group of 50 who registered with the Littleton Fine Arts Guild for the fourth annual Plein Air Festival. “Plein air painting is a tradition and method of creating art, celebrated by artists over the centuries,” according to Patty Dwyer, festival chair. “Many think of Monet and his work inspired at Giverny — his famous gardens. Plein air festivals are held throughout the U.S. and draw crowds and great interest.” She promised that the resulting pieces “will celebrate all that is Littleton—historic buildings,

“Sitting Pretty” by Deborah McAllister was awarded Best of Show by juror Lorenzo Chavez. An exhibit of paintings produced during the festival will be at the Depot Art Gallery, Littleton. COURTESY PHOTO gardens, open space, vistas and urban life.” Indeed they do! The flurry of painting resulted in a colorful, inviting exhibit of smallish artworks, hung closely together on the walls of the Depot Art Gallery, 2069 W. Powers Ave., through July 1. And, they are for sale at modest prices — perhaps a perfect wedding gift for a couple establishing a new home — or a graduate, furnishing a first apartment … The visitor is greeted by bright splashes of sunlit color, bouncing off of flowers,

leaves, architecture, water and more. (This year’s weather was excellent, versus a previous time, when it rained a lot and paintings included puddles.) The quickly framed and hung (on the afternoon on June 1) exhibit, which still bore a faint aroma of notquite-dry oil paint four days later, opened with a large crowd on First Friday, June 1, as part of monthly Littleton Art Walks — and related History Walks, offered by Historic Littleton Inc. members. (HLI was among a group of local sponsors who supported

the festival — a thanks to all who did so.) The juror for the show was nationally recognized Parkerbased painter/teacher Lorenzo Chavez, who picked “Sitting Pretty” by Deborah McAllister as Best of Show. Her image is of an old red truck — with a lighter-colored, obviously replaced, door — parked in front of a cheerful yellow stucco house (circa 1920s?). It is expertly rendered, with clear colors, nice composition and popular subject — sure to be a visitors’ favorite. Participants’ activities included a “Quick-Paint” session at Aspen Grove, with celebration/exhibit at Rice on May 30. Lisa Hut’s “Hot Spot,” of pink flowers in the center’s always-pleasing landscape, won a First Place ribbon. This is the first time the shopping center has been included in the paint-out. Appropriate — it’s a prominent part of the city’s business scene … May 31 was set aside for painters to roam through the city, parks and more — and pursue their particular vision — with resulting glimpses of homes, parks, streets and even an apartment building or two — definitely part of today’s scene. On the morning of June 1, another “Quick-Paint” event happened on Littleton’s

IF YOU GO The Plein Air Festival paintings will be exhibited at the Depot Art Gallery, 2069 W. Powers Ave., Littleton, until July 1. Hours: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday. 303-795-0781, depotartgallery.org.

historic Main street, with Cliff Austin’s “One-Way” sign leading into a familiar street scene that won a First Place ribbon. Austin has a Littleton studio at Woodlawn, where he paints and teaches. Techniques and media vary — it’s worth taking extra time to examine some works closely — with swooshes of wet watercolor, precise and softly blended pastel lines and great variety in line and style from those who paint in oils and acrylics. On the right as one enters, are two renderings of a pink rose at Aspen Grove — one soft pastel, “Hot Spot” by Jan Hut, holds a blue ribbon. The other, a more graphic rendering is also wellpresented and appealing. Visitors will want to allow time for a close look at these modestly sized paintings with some very fine detailing at times. It’s a different scale than one may be accustomed to seeing in museums and galleries …

PrideFest expected to draw more than 350,000 to Civic Center STAFF REPORT

More than 350,000 visitors are expected to attend Denver PrideFest, the annual celebration of LGBT pride, June 16-17 in Denver’s Civic Center, 101 W. 14th Ave. The free festival will feature live entertainment on three stages and more than 200 vendors offering crafts, food and drink.

Project aims to connect DU, community School announces its Denver Advantage Campus Framework Plan BY KAILYN LAMB KLAMB@COLORADOCOMMUITYMEDIA.COM

The University of Denver has announced a large-scale development plan that will change the landscape of the campus with the addition of more retail and dining outlets. The school unveiled the Denver Advantage Campus Framework Plan on May 30. Chancellor Rebecca Chopp said it will better connect the 125-acre campus to its surrounding communities. The private school is in the University neighborhood of south Denver, with the core of campus at

2199 S. University Blvd. “It was our deep commitment to try to open up our campus to be used more,” Chopp said. “When you think about campuses, they’re these phenomenally large facilities that are just not used enough.” In addition to improving and building new student facilities, DU is looking to add mixed-use retail and restaurant developments with housing, as well as a hotel. Chopp said the plan will be flexible in order to meet the needs of students and neighbors over the next decade. She added that she hopes the ambitious scale of the plans at DU will attract developers and shop owners who want to be a part of the expansion. “It really sets the table for what we could be,” she said. SEE PROJECT, P26

Students look at a model of campus, which shows new buildings included in a new development plan at the University of Denver.

Music, arts festival returns for two days of good times Highlands Ranch park is site for variety of performances BY SONYA ELLINGBOE SELLINGBOE@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

In 2006, the active Highlands Ranch Concert Band decided to share its members’ joy in music with a wider community and launched a free Summer Music and Arts Festival, with a few other local bands on site to play for family audiences.

Also on hand will be a number of vendors with food, services and products at the Festival Marketplace. Inviting Civic Green Park has a nice stage in an amphitheater. Visitors need to bring blankets or folding chairs if they want to sit and enjoy a concert or more. Picnics are encouraged — or buy a snack from the festival’s vendors — pizza is mentioned on the band’s website …

Audubon Society’s Falcon Fest returns for fourth year Father’s Day event features Hawkquest demonstrations STAFF REPORT

When asked about their introduction to the world of birds, Audubon Society of Greater Denver members often share stories about grandfathers showing a delicate bird nest out the back window, or a pair of old binoculars being handed off on a family camping trip. That’s why, in 2015, the society decided to create an event to help ensure

SHUTTERSTOCK IMAGE

the creation of birding memories that last a lifetime. With the success of its ever-popular bird-banding Mother’s Day breakfast, which sells out year af-

ter year, a Father’s Day event seemed like the perfect addition. “Eagles, as well as other raptors, have often been used as symbols of power and agility not only in our country, but throughout the world,” Kate Hogan, community outreach coordinator of the Audubon Society of Greater Denver, said in a news releasee. “We wanted to host a unique event that could celebrate fathers and simultaneously create unforgettable family memories in a beautiful outdoor setting.” The fourth annual Father’s Day Falcon Fest is June 16, from 5:30-7 p.m., in the amphitheater behind the Audubon

Nature Center buildings at the south end of Chatfield State Park. Bring a picnic dinner and enjoy a Hawkquest presentation that features live falcons and other birds of prey. Fathers can participate in a prize drawing from Breckenridge Brewery in Littleton. All ticket sales go to support the Audubon Nature Center. Fathers who are Audubon Society members are admitted free; non-member fathers areS admitted for $5. Cost is $16 for adults and $8 for children younger than 12. Advance registration is suggested.

SHEDDING LIGHT ON LYMLIGHT

FROM PAGE 14

By using Lymlight — which is free for everyone — musicians can connect with people interested in hosting a show at their place, and vice versa. Most of the musicians who are interested in playing house shows are moving into markets or areas they’ve never been before, McKee said. “By making the house show process easier and more accessible we’re looking to change the landscape of what the live experience can be,” she added. “They’re a great option for indie artists.” The site also has a range of resources available for those new to hosting. Arvada resident Melissa Rozeski had never attended a house show before she met McKee but fell in love with them after a performance she hosted for her birthday. “We had people bring food and drinks. It was almost like a potluck,” she said. “The best part was the musician would chat with the guests before and after. It gave all of us a chance to support musicians we enjoy.” Ensuring house shows arranged through Lymlight are ethical was of vital im-

Lymlight, an online platform connecting musicians with people who want to host house concerts, has three main principles: 1) Ethical Shows — performer earns a living wage. 2) Original Work — there is plenty of undiscovered and unheard amazing work and therefore it should be heard. 3) Engaged Audience — the performer is not background entertainment. To be a host, all one needs are: • Seats for at least 10 people • Friends who will pay to see live music • A serious love of live music Lymlight is a new website working to connect musicians with hosts of house shows. These low-impact events mainly require a place for people to sit and a love of music. PHOTOS COURTESY OF LYMLIGHT portance to McKee — which means making it possible for musicians to make a living. Guests to events made on the platform must buy a ticket to the show through the platform for tax purposes. This ensures both musician and host are aware of how many seats are getting filled based on the number of tickets sold for each event. When tickets to a show are sold, upon completion of the show, the

ticket sales will automatically be deposited into the musician’s bank account. “I think house shows are the logical next step in the music economic system,” Hauser said. “You just know you’re going to have a good experience at these shows.” At right: House shows are becoming a draw for listeners in search of a intimate way to discover and celebrate musicians.

A new story about everyone’s favorite neighbor Fred Rogers, better known as Mr. Rogers of “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood,” played a critical role in the upbringing of generations of children during his time on PBS. Now one of the most anticipated films of the year is “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?” a documentary all about the ever-popular children’s show host. Alamo Drafthouse Cinema at Sloan’s Lake, 4255 W. Colfax Ave., and Littleton, 7301 S. Santa Fe Drive, are hosting benefit screenings of “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?” Sloan’s Lake’s screening is on June 15 and Littleton is on June 22. A $1 donation from every ticket sold goes to the local PBS station. Visit www.drafthouse.com/denver for tickets.

Clarke’s Concert of the Week — Quiet Slang at Globe Hall James Alex is a rare kind of person in 2018 — a true believer in the cathartic, healing and transcendent power of rock. His band, Beach Slang, brings all the raucous fun and shout-along worthy choruses that made early rock and punk so much fun in the first place. But now James is turning the volume down a little with Quiet Slang, the acoustic version of Beach Slang. It’s a testament to the depth of James’ tunes that they take on a whole other level when played acoustically. Quiet Slang will be making a stop at the Globe Hall, 4483 Logan St. in Denver, at 8 p.m. on Monday, June 18. For tickets, visit www.globehall.com.

For fans of the animals that keep the world green and growing, Westminster’s Butterfly Pavilion is marking June 18 through 24 as its annual Pollinator Week. This pollinator celebration is included with general admission and features animal and plant encounters, a milkweed seed giveaway, guided garden explorations, crafts, games, beeswax candle-making and a new sommelier-led honey tasking and food paring for those 21 and older. In addition, there will be free honey tastings of Local Hive by Rice’s Honey from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in all 19 Colorado Sam’s Club locations, with the Thornton location as the main hub of activity. Visitor information can be found at www.butterflies.org.

UPCOMING PROJECTS AT DU • A new dorm for first-year students, with 500 beds • Community Commons with classroom, study and dining spaces • Career Achievement and Global Alumni Center, which will bring in networking opportunities for students • Improved bike and pedestrian access • New signage at entrances to the school and around campus • Retail and dining options • A hotel • Student housing for upper classman and graduate students • Festival areas

funds become available. Cost estimates for completing the entire plan are still being estimated, the school said. The upcoming residence hall at the school will be paid for by student room and board charges. The Commons and Career Achievement Center are being paid for by donations to the school as well as development partners. The school is hoping to use similar development partnerships to fund future construction. Once the buildings open, all students will pay a new fee of $6.50 per credit hour to support the commons building. Adam Gross, a principal with Ayers Saint Gross, said the mixed-use developments will help add additional revenue streams to DU through lease

better connect those parcels. The school is also planning on improving mobility around campus, including new pedestrian and bicycle pathways. A pilot program for a new shuttle system will launch in July. Part of improving pedestrian access is making the walk around campus safer for students. The school estimated that more than 12,000 people cross Evans Avenue every day. DU will be adding special crosswalks that provide medians in the road for pedestrians to safely wait. “We are trying harder and harder to find ways to make it more natural to move across campus, and that the cars understand that they’re in a pedestrian zone,” said Mark Rogers, the university architect.

terms. During the presentation Gross said some buildings will be renovated, such as Sturm Hall, which serves as an academic building. Others, like 50-year-old student dormitory Johnson-McFarlane Hall, also known as J-Mac, would be demolished. Gross said J-Mac in particular would have cost more to renovate than to build a new structure. The building will be replaced with a new building for undergraduate housing. “You’re kind of throwing good money after bad by continuing to invest in it,” he said. Campus buildings are currently separated into different sections across the 125 acres. Gross said the new construction plans would help to

The first phase will be three new buildings that are expected to be completed by the summer of 2020, and will cost a combined $143 million. The first two, a 500-bed dormitory for first-year students and a “Community Commons,” will be under construction in mid-June, and the third building, the Career Achievement and Global Alumni Center, will follow in January. The Community Commons will include classroom, study and dining spaces. The Career Achievement building will provide students with the opportunity to build relationships with DU’s alumni and to network with potential employers. Outside of the three buildings, the school has not started the design process on new structures. DU is working with Ayers Saint Gross, a Baltimorebased architecture firm. The school board would need to vote on individual building projects within the plan before construction starts. Chopp said construction at DU will happen in clusters around the school instead of spreading the work throughout the large campus. This way, students can navigate around building projects. The plan has been divided into phases, and Chopp said they are hoping a bulk of the projects will be finished in eight to 10 years. The school will also look at adding affordable housing projects, and potentially even senior housing in the area. Construction on the buildings and open spaces in the plan will happen as

CHSAA leader brings her role into public view

Creek’s Payton Canon chosen as Girls Golfer of Year

R

As a sophomore, Chowdhury was undefeated in the regular season and won the regional state qualifying tourney. She had not lost a set in 17 matches heading into the May 11 No. 1 singles finale against defending champion Ty Eaton of Poudre. Chowdhury suffered her only loss of the season with a 6-4, 6-4 loss to Eaton but was named the 2018 Colorado Community Media South Metro Girls Tennis Player of the Year. ”When I first got on the court in the finals it was really nervewracking because there were so many people with cameras, but it was fun,” she said. “After last year and losing in the regionals I started stepping up and started putting more time into

honda Blanford-Green, the former Aurora Central and University of Nebraska track standout, took over as the Colorado High School Athletic Association’s ninth commissioner last July. In her first year, Blanford-Green reached one of her goals of having the CHSAA commissioner become more OVERTIME visible so athletes, coaches, fans, parents and school administrators can recognize her. And, as she said, she has put a face to a name. Blanford-Green was seen at meetJim Benton ings and gatherings of cooperate sponsors, legislators and educational institutions. At the recent CHSAA baseball tournament, Blanford-Green stopped to talk and visit with fans in the crowd. She worked for the CHSAA for 16 years, including time as an associate commissioner. She was the executive director of the Nebraska Schools Activities Association for three years and spent two years as an assistant executive director of the Louisiana High School Association before taking over at the CHSAA. When she took over last July she emphasized that she was not a change agent, but a few of the proposals that the CHSAA Executive Council approved last April drew a smile on Blanford-Green’s face. A change that Blanford-Green mentioned that was needed was one that allows Colorado athletes to represent their schools in national events. Colorado teams and individuals are now allowed to represent their schools out of season in national competitions if they get the permission of the school principal and CHSAA office. Before, these teams and individuals took part nationally as members of a club. Blanford-Green made it to all but one of the state championships and the one she missed was because of a conflict with another CHSAA state event. So this is a good spot to review the state titles won by local teams during the 2017-18 season. Mountain Vista won the 5A boys baseball title to go along with boys and girls cross country crowns captured last fall. Valor Christian won its third consecutive 4A state baseball title and Eagles girls won the 4A state track championship.

Player brought character to team, helped set tone for championship BY JIM BENTON JBENTON@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Steady, consistent, unflappable were terms that could define the play of Cherry Creek’s Payton Canon this season on the golf course. Coach Randy Smith came up with another description for his senior golfer. “She was a rock,” said Smith. “She was the reason we were in the position we were in. Talk about a Most Valuable Player.” Canon, who won three Centennial League meets and fashioned a round of 68 at Aurora Hills, tied for third place in the individual standings at the Class 5A state meet held May 21-22 at the Boulder Country Club. She was the lone senior

on the team and leader for the Bruins who captured the team championship. Canon has been named the 2018 Colorado Community Media South Metro Girls Golfer of the Year. “Before the state tournament, I just wanted to win,” said Canon. “If players were down, I wanted to pick them up. It was up to me to stay upbeat. We had a lot of potential. “I thought I played well this season. I had my career low round.” Canon carded rounds of 75 and 77 for a 152 36-hole total at the state tournament. Her steady second round helped the Bruins rally past first-day leader Regis Jesuit and secondplace Grandview to win the state title by two shots over the Wolves.

Meghna Chowdhury made Rock Canyon history when the sophomore became the first player in school history to reach the finals of the girls state tennis championships. Chowdhury lost to Ky Eaton of Poudre, 6-4, 6-4, in the No. 1 singles championship match on May 11 at the Gates Tennis Center. JIM BENTON

Sophomore Meghna Chowdhury became the first Rock Canyon player to advance to the state tennis tournament finals, which was an amazing improvement from a year ago. Chowdhury lost only three matches playing at No. 1 singles as a freshman last season, but two came in the Region 7 state qualifying tournament and she didn’t qualify for the state tournament. But what a difference a year makes.

my tennis. I played a lot of national tournaments and my game has improved.”

Ponderosa junior Blake Wilton was one of the state’s strongest swimmers throughout the season and has been named the 2018 Colorado Community Media South Metro Boys Swimmer of the year. Wilton finished second at the Class 5A state swimming meet on May 18-19 at the Veterans Aquatic Memorial in the 100 butterfly with a time of 48.95. He was seventh in the finals of the 200 freestyle and swam a leg on Ponderosa’s 200 IM relay team and the 200 medley relay. The medley foursome was third in the state and the 200 IM team finished fourth. Mountain Vista swim coach Rob Nasser tracks the state’s best times and noted that Wilton was dominant summer and changed some things in her game. She was able to develop weapons that she did not have last year. Also she was a great team leader. “That was the first time in our school history to have a player in the finals, so we are really proud of her. Her serves and her forehand are really

most of the season. “He ranked in the top 20 in five events over the year, and while he didn’t have the state meet he could/ should have had, the body of work over the year seems strong to me,” said Nasser. “I feel that Wilton also entered events at the state meet that were competitive.” In the May 13 rankings prior to the state meet, Wilton’s time of 20.97 was the second fastest in the 50 freestyle, and he was second in the 200 freestyle (1:41.44) and the 100 butterfly (49.38). He was ranked third in the 100 backstroke (50.44) and sixth in the 100 freestyle (47.97). “Blake is a diamond in the rough,” said Ponderosa coach Warren Ross. “We are very blessed to have him on the team. Not only his willingness to help others, his competitive nature and his all-around swimming mind, body and spirit is amazing. He has an internal pace clock. I can set a pace for him and he can maintain it no matter what stroke or what distance we are doing.” becoming weapons. The finals were a great lesson for her. Her emotions kicked in a lot in the first set, then she managed a little bit better. We look forward to her coming back next year. Her emotions will be easier to control next year.”

After taking home piggyback runner-up 5A football trophies, Pomona won the top prize last fall and the Panthers girls won the gymnastics title. Legend’s softball team won the school’s first sanctioned state title and Castle View took advantage of good fortune in the final pool play match and won two five-set matches to secure the 5A girls volleyball championship. Cherry Creek won both the 5A girls tennis and golf championships this spring and Jefferson Academy won a shootout to secure the girls 3A state soccer hardware. And not to forget the spirit championships, Valor won the 4A cheer event while Wheat Ridge was declared the 4A poms champs. ThunderRidge was the winner of the 5A poms title. Castle View took the 4A/5A co-ed crown while Ponderosa was the Jazz winner.

converts to a 4.08 in the 1,600 meters. Caden Foster was sixth in the race with a 4:11.24 with a conversion of 4:09 to 1,600. The all-time Colorado 1,600 meter record is 4:10.98.

Softball Player of the Year Valor Christian senior Ali Kilponen has been named Colorado’s Gatorade Softball Player of the Year. The fouryear Eagles standout who has signed to pitch for Louisiana State went 22-1 in her senior year with an 0.42 earned run average and 273 strikeouts in 134 innings pitched with just 12 walks. And, she hit .466 with six homers. In her career, Valor won three Class 4A state championships and she compiled an 87-4 record with a 0.55 ERA and 998 strikeouts in 537.3 innings pitched.

Take me out to the ball game There were several players with ties to local schools that were selected during the three days of the Major League baseball draft. Former D’Evelyn athlete Grant Witherspoon, a centerfielder for Tulane, was tabbed in the fourth round by Tampa Bay and former Holy Family outfielder Devlin Granberg of Dallas Baptist College was picked by the Boston Red Sox in the sixth round. Cherry Creek grad Lane Milligan, an outfielder for Oklahoma City University, was a 17th-round choice of the Boston Red Sox and Standley Lake third baseman Garrett Martin was picked by the Baltimore Orioles in the 22nd round. Martin graduated in May and is committed to play at McClennan Junior College. Former Legend and Southern Illinois pitcher Michael Baird was a 23rdround pick of the St. Louis Cardinals, and the Colorado Rockies selected Centennial resident and Colorado Mesa left-handed pitcher Reagan Todd in the 32nd round. Riley Egloff, who pitched for Heritage this spring and is a Yavapai Junior College commit, was tabbed in the 36th round by the Miami Marlins, and the Rockies in the same round selected Rock Canyon shortstop Cayden Zimmerman, who intends to attend the Air Force Academy.

On the track At the Great Southwest track meet in Albuquerque, which was May 31 to June 2, two local seniors dominated. Emily Sloan, a Rock Canyon graduate, won the 100- and 300-meter hurdles in times of 13.54 and 41.10 respectively. Lutheran’s Maya Evans captured the long jump with a 20-10.75 leap. Two Mountain Vista distance runners didn’t win but had impressive times at the Festival of Miles in St. Louis on June 2. Carter Dillon was fourth in the mile run with a time of 4:10.34, which

Cornhusker commit Valor Christian senior-to-be Luke McCaffrey, who has been a quarterback, receiver, running back, defensive back and kick returner for the past three years, has committed to play football at Nebraska. He will be the fourth of the McCaffrey brothers to play major college football. Max played at Duke and Christian was a standout at Stanford. Max is currently with the NFL San Francisco 49ers and Christian plays for Carolina. Dylan McCaffrey is a redshirt freshman quarterback at Michigan.

The gambit seems to be paying off, Sims said, with vacancy rates below 10 percent, down from a high of nearly 30 percent in the waning years of the recession. Southwest Plaza is well-positioned to be a vital community hub, said Bob Golden, the CEO of the South Metro Denver Chamber of Commerce. “The southwest side of the Denver metro area has seen so much activity, spending and growth,” Golden said. “Southwest Plaza Mall represents and reflects that.” Golden is optimistic about Southwest Plaza’s prospects. “When we were there to cut the ribbon on that aquarium, there were a hundred people in line,” Golden said. “Experience is what people are looking for. If it’s blizzarding or really hot out, it’s a nice place to go. There’s plenty of parking, and it’s in the neighborhood. Those people are going to shop, too, and they can go to Southwest Plaza instead of Park Meadows or Cherry Creek.” It’s too soon to know whether the experiential strategy will work long-term, Golden said. “It’s business,” Golden said. “Sometimes you hit it and sometimes you don’t. Even at Southglenn and Park Meadows there’s turnover. People still want that mall experience.” The experiential trend is a natural next step for indoor malls, said Josh Goldstein, an architectural designer and mall historian, who is currently working on a project to digitally recreate Englewood’s long-gone Cinderella City mall. “Experience-oriented tenants might find a more interesting or creative use for a huge amount of space than a tra-

Some of the experiences they’re targeting really can’t be had at home, so they are offering unique incentives to get customers through the door, at which point they might actually buy some merchandise too.” Goldstein, whose work often focuses on creative reuses for old buildings, said Southwest Plaza’s renovation

could have gone further by incorporating a blend of indoor and outdoor areas which could offer more insulation against future market fluctuations. “I think a lot of the indoor centers have to fight harder to avoid the ‘dead mall’ feeling than outdoor centers,” Goldstein said. “Imagine a few retailers leave in an enclosed corridor, and you’ve got the makings of a dead mall.” The new experiential strategy seemed to be paying off on a recent

weekday morning, when a line to enter SeaQuest Interactive Aquarium snaked far back along a corridor, with eager toddlers on tiptoe, trying to sneak a peek at the animals ahead. “Southwest Plaza is just a great place to bring the kids,” said Mattie Lord, who was in line with several relatives. “It’s safe, there’s a lot to do, and we live just down the street. Plus, it’s not Park Meadows. I can afford to shop here.”

Kennedy also wrote, “And any decision in favor of the baker would have to be sufficiently constrained, lest all purveyors of goods and services who object to gay marriages for moral and religious reasons in effect be allowed to put up signs saying ‘no goods or

services will be sold if they will be used for gay marriages,’ something that would impose a serious stigma on gay persons.” • Similar cases will undoubtedly arise until some kind of clear decision is given by the court about where religious freedom and discrimination meet, all three experts agreed. “The issue isn’t even close to being settled yet,” Koehler said. “I saw some saying this was just one battle in a larger war, but it wasn’t even that. This was just a fist fight.”
