City could update rules on shooting ranges Proposed ordinance would require future public hearings, safety measures BY DAVID GILBERT DGILBERT@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Future shooting ranges in Littleton would have to go through a much stricter permit approval process under the terms of a draft ordinance in the early stages of consideration by city council. The proposal comes on the heels of a controversial planned shooting range on hiatus in the SouthPark neighborhood that spawned a flurry of litigation. Triple J Armory, a family-owned gun store, drew the ire of neighbors in summer 2018 after starting construction on a shooting range in a warehouse near McLellan Reservoir without city permits. After months of legal wrangling, the city issued a permit for the range, though the owners had not picked up the permit as of Nov. 29. Triple J has opened a retail store on the site.

Neighbors alleged the city’s zoning codes and permit approval process were obsolete for dealing with shooting range applications in an increasingly densely populated city. Shooting ranges would have to apply for conditional use permits and meet a variety of criteria before they could be approved, according to a draft of the ordinance presented at the Nov. 27 city council study session by city attorney Steve Kemp. The ordinance would require a public hearing on all shooting range applications. Owners would be required to lock up all on-site guns in a safe or vault every night, as well as a variety of other safety and security measures. Shooting ranges would not be allowed immediately adjacent to residential zones. “We’d see a police department review,” Kemp said. “We’d look at parking, at compatibility with adjacent uses. Many factors would be considered.” Outdoor shooting ranges would face far stricter rules, including a setback of at least a mile from residences in the line of fire — a distance that Kemp said would effec-

tively render almost the entire city off-limits. The ordinance has a long way to go before final approval — next it will go to the city’s Planning Commission, then go back before city council for hearings in February. The ordinance would have no bearing on Triple J, which would be grandfathered into existing laws and permits, said Littleton Mayor Debbie Brinkman. Currently, shooting ranges are permitted under the city’s “indoor recreation” use definitions, Kemp said, which apply to B-2 and B-3 zones, as well as in planned developments, which make up roughly half the city’s 14 square miles. The definition allowed Triple J to apply for a business license as a use by right, Kemp said, meaning the city had no recourse to hold public hearings on its approval. The ordinance would be a welcome change, Brinkman said. “Shooting ranges were never the intent for certain areas of the community,” Brinkman said. “The code we have was written many years ago, and clearly it’s time we update it. I

would hope people feel they have protection against they feel aren’t appropriate near schools or children.” It’s too bad this process wasn’t undertaken sooner, Brinkman said, but something had to trigger it. “Cities don’t just sit down and review all their codes in all their zones regularly,” Brinkman said. “There are unintended consequences that come up.” As for Triple J, Brinkman said the city will strictly enforce noise and parking regulations around the shooting range. The ordinance has the support of Highline Crossing, a “cohousing” community near Triple J’s new location that led opposition to the range, said Rebecca Askew, Highline’s HOA president. “It’s a step in the right direction, though it’s a little late for our community,” Askew said. “I love the idea of a public hearing. I wish this scrutiny would’ve happened for our situation, but we want what’s best for the city at large.” Triple J Armory owner JD Murphree declined to comment for this article.

I worked in a furniture warehouse, then a convenience store, then I bartended for a long time. Medical education is so often a pipeline — you’re expected to go from high school to college to med school, and that doesn’t allow you to meet other kinds of people and empathize with them. Working in different jobs makes it a lot easier to understand where people are coming from, or how they’re going to approach you as a doctor in the first place.

‘I don’t know what we’re going to do’ More than 160 seniors must find new homes in wake of fire in apartment building BY DAVID GILBERT DGILBERT@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

All the residents of the east tower of the Windermere apartments — 163 seniors — will be evicted from the building after a mid-November fire rendered the building uninhabitable, building management announced at a meeting with residents on Dec. 3. City of Littleton fire and building officials declared the building uninhabitable, according to a city news release, because of significant asbestos contamination throughout much of the building. Though details are still being hammered out, residents will likely begin moving out of the building’s 130 units on Dec. 10, said Andy Boian, a spokesman for Tebo-Orvis LLC, the company that owns the building. “I’m numb — just numb,” said Carolyn Stubbert, who moved back to the Windermere after leaving the complex’s west tower following a 2016 fire that saw more than 130 residents evicted. “It’s the same thing all over again. Turmoil. Uncertainty. I don’t know what we’re going to do.” Carolyn’s husband Jim said he wasn’t surprised. “I knew since the day of the fire this was coming,” Jim said. He was hospitalized for two nights for smoke inhalation following the fire. The building’s residents have been locked out since Nov. 17, when a fire in a first-floor apartment forced the full evacuation of the building, located on South Datura Street, just south of Littleton Boulevard. Michael Mitchell, the resident of the burned unit, died in the blaze. At least 14 others were injured. The fire was contained to one unit, but smoke made its way throughout the building, officials said. Nine units, mostly on the building’s first floor, are considered a total loss, meaning most of those residents’ belongings are so contaminated that they cannot be cleaned. The building’s

Tebo-Orvis is working with the city to craft an “evacuation plan,” Boian said, which will likely spell out a schedule for the clearing out of each floor of the tower, starting with the top of the five-story building. The first floor and basement are still off-limits, however. Regular moving companies are unlikely to be able to handle the move, Boian said, and special disaster mitigation companies will be

Andy Boian, the spokesman for Tebo-Orvis LLC, tells residents of the Windermere apartments that city officials declared the building uninhabitable following a Nov. 17 fire. All 163 residents have been evicted, but still have to wait to begin retrieving their belongings. DAVID GILBERT needed to remove and decontaminate residents’ belongings. The building’s elevators, lobby and central stairs are off limits, so movers and others will only be able to use fire exit stairs to access units. It is unclear when or if residents will be able to enter units themselves. Tebo-Orvis will refund residents’ security deposits and pro-rated rent since the day of the fire, and will provide an additional $500 per resident, Boian said, but only once each resident is fully moved out. Arapahoe County’s Housing and Community Development Division is gearing up to assist residents find new housing, said Linda Haley, the division’s director. Love Inc., a Christian charity, is also poised to help residents with needs big and small, said Kathryn Roy, the group’s director. The county may be able to provide funds to help residents get into new homes until Tebo-Orvis refunds their money, Haley said. Some face greater problems. One woman who spoke during the meeting said she is an immigrant, and unable to function without her green card and passport, which have been locked in her basement unit since the day of the fire. Haselhof provided no timeline for retrieving items from basement units,

but said all residents should be prepared for a lengthy process of cleaning and retrieving belongings. “Everybody’s unit has smoke damage,” Haselhof said. “Don’t move those belongings to your new apartments unless you get them professionally cleaned.” The city stands behind residents, said Littleton Mayor Debbie Brinkman. “It’s not the news anybody wanted to hear, but it’s not unexpected,” Brinkman said. “I’ve been sorely disappointed in this management group. I was disappointed two years ago, and I’m disappointed now. The answers just haven’t been there for these people.” Numerous residents at the meeting said they are still without official letters from management to confirm the building is off-limits, which they said are necessary to make full insurance claims. Boian said the company is working on getting letters to that effect ready “as soon as possible.” For those residents still waiting in hotels and in the homes of friends and family, at least the news provided a chance to move forward. “I just want to get my husband’s ashes,” said Carla Baker, who lived in the building as a caretaker for a blind resident. “Everything else is just stuff.”

Life after fire ‘feels like living in a nightmare’ BY DAVID GILBERT DGILBERT@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

After residents of the Windermere apartments were told they would have to keep waiting to find out when or if they could return home on Nov. 27, Littleton Mayor Debbie Brinkman said the seniors deserve more information to assist in their ability to make plans. “To continue to spoonfeed one week of information at a time when these people are trying to determine what to do with the rest of their lives is inadequate,” Brinkman said. “The way (Tebo-Orvis) is treating our

citizens, the information they’re giving them, and the lack of resources they’re providing — they’re failing miserably and we don’t appreciate that at all.” The Littleton apartment building’s residents, who were displaced by a Nov. 17 fire, got their first update in a week on Nov. 27, but there wasn’t much to learn. They were told more contamination testing would be needed before they would know when or if they could return to the five-story tower, which comprises 130 units for people 55 years of age and older. Residents also learned that Tebo-Orvis LLC,

the building’s owner, planned to refund residents’ rent for the second half of November and would refund security deposits for residents who are moving out. And they were also told there would be another meeting on Dec. 3. Trying to navigate day-to-day life since the fire “feels like living in a nightmare,” said Sharon Dutkevitch, whose apartment was on the first floor near the fire. Dutkevitch and her husband live on Social Security, and have had to wrangle their insurance to pay for their hotel and other living expenses, she said.

“They wanted us to submit receipts afterward, but we can’t put that much money up front,” Dutkevitch said. She said she and her husband are scrambling to find a new place to live. The situation is exhausting, said Carla Baker, a caretaker for a blind resident, both of whom were previously evicted from the complex’s west tower after a fire in 2016. “I feel like I lost everything I ever owned, same as last time,” Baker said. “But God’s got his arms around us. We have to stick together as family and friends. If we don’t have faith, we don’t have anything.”

Fire victim drew County officials preparing complaints over smoking to help seniors displaced by fire Michael Mitchell was seen rushing back into apartment with fire extinguisher BY DAVID GILBERT DGILBERT@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

BY DAVID GILBERT DGILBERT@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

County human services officials are gearing up to assist residents displaced by the Nov. 17 Windermere apartment fire, which left more than 100 seniors locked out of their homes while they await word on when or if they’ll be able to get back in. Residents are aware that a 2016 fire in the complex’s other tower resulted in the mass eviction of all the tower’s residents, said Linda Haley, manager of Arapahoe County’s Senior Resources Division. Her office was instrumental in finding scores of apartments for residents displaced by the last fire, and may have to do so again, Haley said. The news that the recent fire caused a major spill of asbestos was not good, Haley said. “We’re hoping for the best and planning for the worst,” Haley said. The problem is that there aren’t nearly enough suitable apartments in Littleton to absorb all the tower’s residents if they’re all evicted, Haley said — the Windermere offered low-cost rent, security, a community of fellow senior residents, and access for the disabled. “There are maybe a dozen apartments in Littleton that match that description,” Haley said. More than a hundred might be needed, and residents might find themselves scattered across the Denver metro area.

The man who died in a Nov. 17 fire at the Windermere apartments in Littleton had drawn complaints for smoking inside his unit, according to a police report. Michael Mitchell, 70, was found dead in his first-floor apartment after the earlymorning blaze. The fire forced the evacuation of the 130-unit senior apartment tower at 5829 S. Datura St. At least 14 others were injured, including six police officers. Littleton fire investigators ruled the fire accidental, but have not yet determined the specific cause. Mitchell’s cause and manner of death were not yet available on Nov. 30, according to the Arapahoe County Coroner’s Office.

Windermere management was aware of complaints from residents that Mitchell smoked cigarettes inside his unit, which was a violation of the complex’s rules, according to the report. Mitchell had only lived at the apartment for a month or so, the report says. A witness saw a man she later identified as Mitchell in the hall moments after the fire broke out “with grease on his face,” according to the report. The witness said she asked the man what he was doing, and he said “something to the effect of ‘I was working.’” Mitchell instructed the woman to pull a fire extinguisher off the wall and hand it to him before “disappearing down the hall,” the report said. Emergency responders later found Mitchell dead in his apartment, face down in a back bedroom. Investigators found a fire extinguisher in the living room area across from the fire’s apparent origin point. “Nothing appeared suspicious,” according to the report.

Haley said she doesn’t yet have a count of how many seniors are looking for new housing, because management has provided little information on the building’s condition and most residents would like to return. “At this point, people still believe they’re going back,” Haley said. “Those on the first floor (where the fire started) know they’re not going back, though. We’re trying to position ourselves to respond as best we can.” Haley said her office has been responding to numerous requests for assistance, much of it in dealing with insurance companies. “These residents are traumatized, first off,” Haley said. “They can’t get their policies out of their apartments. Lots of them don’t even have their IDs, so they can’t even get their mail from the post office.” Thankfully, Haley said, the vast majority of residents have renters’ insurance this time around, unlike the last fire where only a few did. Residents face a host of other issues, Haley said. “Everyone left something behind,” she said. “Oxygen concentrators, hearing aids, clothing. Most of these people don’t have a high monthly income. They paid November rent and utilities, and spent money on food. But that food is gone.” Haley said she is re-assembling the team of local officials, agencies and nonprofits that came together to help seniors displaced by the 2016 fire.

Parkour creates caring community As sport booms in Colorado, gyms promote inclusivity, safety BY CASEY VAN DIVIER CASEYVANDIVIER@YAHOO.COM

Ken Arrington, founder of parkour gym Path Movement, knows that parkour — in which athletes often scale walls, make 9-foot leaps and traverse rails 10 feet off the ground — has a bad reputation for being dangerous. That’s why he keeps close tabs on the safety at his gym. He’s managed to keep injuries to a minimum. He said that out of 17,289 customer visits at the Littleton gym, there have only been three instances of broken bones. “All people see is these kids running around on rooftops and breaking the law,” he said, “but when parkour is done correctly and taught correctly, it is safer than most sports.” In Arrington’s 6,000-square-foot facility at 8000 S. Lincoln St., students can try their hand at a variety of feats. The gym is a collection of boxes, rails, rings and a 14-foot “warped wall,” all of which Arrington built himself. He often rearranges the equipment so students can have new experiences. Path Movement is one of many parkour gyms in Colorado, a state which several outlets have called a hotspot for the top sites at which to practice parkour. American Parkour, for instance, named the University of Colorado at Boulder the fourth best location for parkour athletes in America. APEX Movement also named Colorado one of the top 10 states for parkour based on the number of times Coloradans have searched for the terms “parkour” and “freerunning” on Google. Colorado was one of the first adopters of the sport in the Western Hemisphere. In fact, the first parkour classes on this side of the world were taught in 2006 by APEX Movement on the CU-Boulder campus. APEX has since opened three gyms in Colorado and two in California. “APEX was definitely the first gym in Colorado, and the second gym in America,” said Vinny Fiacco, who is co-owner and general manager at APEX Movement’s gym in Denver, 700 W. Mississippi Ave. Athletes now recognize Colorado as home to one of the most thriving parkour communities. “I stole a couple coaches from gyms in different states, and it’s because they wanted to be a part of a community that’s growing,” Arrington said. As for why the Colorado parkour community started growing to begin with, he suggested the state’s reputation for progressiveness may have something to do with it. “We’re pretty forward when it comes to the way that we think,” he said. “We have a state that’s very accepting of the outliers.” Although the increase in popularity is focused in states like Colorado, the sport is gaining momentum all across

the nation, Fiacco said. “Ten years ago, there was nothing, and now there’s 100,000 people doing it,” he said. Staying safe For both gyms, the increase in popularity means more customers, but it doesn’t have to mean an increase in injuries. Fiacco and Arrington, whose gyms often see 100 customers per day, said the best way to minimize risk is to educate athletes on safety. “I made sure everybody who walked through the gym took our introductory class,” Arrington said. “We teach you how to fall, we teach you how to roll, we teach you how to learn to be safe.” Parkour athletes Julian Frazier and Shae Perkins, who often train together at APEX Movement, said out of all the sports they’ve tried, parkour has been one of the least dangerous. “I’ve been able to manage risk a lot better in parkour because I have a lot more autonomy in how I interact with the space,” Frazier said. “I’ve broken some fingers and ribs, nothing that was too big of a deal,” Perkins said. “Maybe it should have taken me out. I just kept training.” As the sport works its way into the mainstream, many of the newer athletes have different aspirations than their predecessors, Perkins said, which may also lessen the risk of injury. “It used to just be young men who wanted be reckless, and now it’s everyone,” he said. “There’s a lot of people who their life is not necessarily parkour,” Frazier agreed. “This is a power hobby or something that contributes to their work-life balance.” A tight community Perkins estimated that there are 10 times more women training in the sport than there were when he started 12 years ago. Additionally, he said the age range of the sport’s practitioners has expanded significantly — a trend

Students practice their skills during a class at Path Movement. that Arrington has also noticed. “I’d say our youngest participant is about 5, and our oldest participant is 68,” he said. “You can have them in the same building doing the same thing, and that’s what makes it wildly unique and amazing.” The sport also appeals to athletes who are on the spectrum or have a learning disability, a group that makes up 10 percent of the customers at Path Movement. “The people that thrive in parkour are the people who love individual sports,” Arrington said. “You can have somebody with a strong learning disability who enjoys it and is in the same class as a top-tier athlete.” Ayden Perkins, a freshman at ThunderRidge High School — and Arrington’s stepson — has become one of the best athletes at Path Movement in the few years he has been training there. As somebody who has ADHD, he always has a lot of energy, he said, and parkour is one way he can channel that energy. “It makes you focus on this one thing, parkour, and nothing else,” he said. “It just calms you down.”

Beyond being a fun hobby, the sport has positive benefits for him after he leaves the gym. “This gets all the energy out, so then I can focus on my homework,” he said. For everyone in the parkour world, one of the greatest rewards is the sport’s one-of-a-kind community and the strong bonds between coaches and students, Arrington said. “My coaches are very protective of the kids,” he said. “They’re the unsung heroes of our community. My business would be worth nothing without them.” Likewise, the athletes are supportive of one another in a way that isn’t common to other sports, Fiacco and Arrington said. “It’s only about 10 years old, so everyone remembers what it’s like to not be able to do the challenge you’re trying,” Fiacco said. “No one wants to see you fail. Everyone wants to help.” “We had a competition last weekend and there wasn’t a dry eye in the whole building, because everybody was rooting for everybody,” Arrington said. “Parkour, in its core, is all about the community.”

Littleton Market brings local food to downtown Farm-to-table store offers groceries grown nearby, with love

IF YOU GO Address: 2692 W. Alamo Ave. Hours: The store doesn’t have set hours yet, but is generally open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. most days.

BY DAVID GILBERT DGILBERT@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

For the first time in a long time, you can buy milk and eggs in downtown Littleton. Getting groceries produced by local farmers in a downtown shop might seem like a throwback, but for Littleton Market owner Hannah King, it’s part of an effort to reconnect people with their food — and each other. “Each of these products has a story,” said King, 32, sitting behind the market’s counter. “We’ve got meat, veggies, eggs, milk and honey, all of which you can have an appreciation for. They’re from farmers who are part of the community, and provide superb quality of life for their animals.” Littleton Market is still in its infancy, and King has lined up contracts with roughly 20 local vendors, with hopes for many more. The idea is to provide farmers market-quality goods year-round, King said, bridging the gap between consumers and producers who might otherwise only find each other at popup markets. The market is an exciting place to do business, said Todd Smith, the propri-

etor of Elephant Rock Farm. Smith’s specialty is microgreens — sprouts of plants like chives and broccoli that are packed with nutrition. “This place is up and coming, it’s here and now, but it’s also the oldschool local style,” Smith said as he dropped off boxes of bright greens at the market. “Yeah, you can buy so-

called local produce at King Soopers, but it’s still from a massive commercial farm. This is the real deal, and I assure you, you can taste the difference.” Asked what the store means to her, new customer Nancy Tibbets said one word: “Hope.” “Hannah said the guy who raises the pork is just 26,” said Tibbets, who grew up on a ranch in southeast Colorado. “It does my heart good to see young people involved in agriculture. Food doesn’t grow at the grocery store, and it’s important to understand where it comes from and who’s making it.” King has visited the farms of many of her vendors, she said, touring local pastures and more. She’s got big plans SEE MARKET, P9

Todd Smith, proprietor of Elephant Rock Farm, said Littleton Market is an exciting place to sell microgreens.

Project aims to mitigate zooming costs of housing Loan fund also will address rents with eye toward helping nonprofits BY JOSEPH RIOS JRIOS@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

The cost of housing in the Denver metro area has made it impossible for many Coloradans to afford a home. In the once-affordable suburb of Lakewood, for instance, online real estate marketplace Zillow says home values have gone up 7.5 percent in the past year to a median value of $366,200, with a forecast of a 4.4 percent increase in the coming year, making things even more difficult for potential buyers. Emerging through the scorching hot real estate market is a loan fund from a project called the Metro Denver

Impact Facility. Urban Land Conservancy, a nonprofit organization that uses real estate to benefit urban communities in the Denver area, announced in November that it would launch the Metro Denver Impact Facility. The facility is expected to become a $50 million project that will help Urban Land Conservancy acquire land in order to preserve affordable housing, nonprofit buildings, schools and community space throughout the Denver metro area. In addition to the skyrocketing cost of ownership, high rents are hurting. Christi Smith, the vice president of strategy and communications for Urban Land Conservancy, pointed out that rent prices have left some residents displaced. The impact of high rent prices affects more than those who are looking for a place to live — nonprofit organizations have also felt the sting.

“We’re contacted by nonprofit organizations all the time asking if we have availability in any of our buildings, or if we can help them, or if we can find a building where they can run their programs,” Smith said. Smith said the Metro Denver Impact Facility has already been put to use. Urban Land Conservancy used it to acquire the Harlan Nonprofit Center, a 29,000-square-foot building that serves as the headquarters for Lutheran Family Services, a dental practice and a law firm that focuses on education and civil rights law. The building is located at 363 S. Harlan St. in Lakewood, and it was purchased for $3.69 million. “The Denver region is no longer an equitable place to live and work, and our goal with this new resource is to stimulate additional local low-cost investment to support more permanently affordable housing and nonprofit facility spaces, thereby creating

opportunities for all residents to live, work and play in the communities of their choice,” Aaron Miripol said in a statement. Miripol is the president and CEO for Urban Land Conservancy. The Metro Denver Impact Facility is expected to grow to a $50 million community resource within the next few years. FirstBank contributed $25 million to the facility, while Colorado Housing and Finance Authority also contributed $2 million. Other organizations involved with the Metro Denver Impact Facility include The Denver Foundation and the Colorado Health Foundation. “We’re only as successful as our communities are. We’re thrilled to be involved with Urban Land Conservancy, and we’re excited to see where else (the Metro Denver Impact Facility) will take us to,” said Stu Wright, executive vice president of FirstBank in Lakewood.

City council’s wrangling over how to regulate short-term home rentals in Littleton continued last week, as councilmembers hashed out the finer points of a proposed ordinance at the Nov. 27 study session. Council shifted direction on the proposed ordinance’s occupancy limit, now proposing to set the number of guests allowed in a rental to one guest per 200 square feet of home size. Council had previously directed staff to mandate that no more than five unrelated people could stay in one short-term rental, but some councilmembers found that regulation problematic. “If you have a family of 14, that creates a loophole,” said Councilmember Kyle Schlachter. Limiting guests to five unrelated

people also didn’t take into account the size of some homes that might easily accommodate more, said Councilmember Karina Elrod. Council also debated how best to notify neighbors about the presence of nearby short-term rentals, and how to provide neighbors with emergency contacts in case of problems over issues like noise or parking. The ordinance will likely include language limiting short-term rentals to one per owner, and require that the owner use the dwelling as their primary residence at least eight months out of the year. City council first took up the issue in July, after a group of neighbors complained about a short-term rental on their block that they said was functioning as an unlicensed hotel and playing host to large parties. The complaint exposed Littleton’s lack of a formalized framework to regulate such rentals, and council enacted a three-month moratorium on new business licenses for short-term rentals in order to explore a draft ordinance. That moratorium was expanded in October, and is now expected to wrap up in January 2019.

As shopping season starts, so do new sales tax rules New emergency rule went into effect Dec. 1 BY TABATHA STEWART SPECIAL TO COLORADO COMMUNITY MEDIA

The Colorado Department of Revenue enacted an emergency rule Sept. 26 that makes it mandatory for retailers in Colorado who ship goods out of their own jurisdiction to collect sales tax on the merchandise based on the rate of where the product is shipped. Whether a seller ships items across town, across the state, or out of state, the retailer is responsible for identifying, and charging, the tax for every item shipped. According to Dan Carr, Department of Revenue Taxation communications manager, Colorado was one of 33 states who enacted emergency rules after the supreme court ruling in the case of South Dakota vs. Wayfair, in which South Dakota won the right to receive sales tax on items purchased on the internet and shipped to the state. “With the Wayfair decision, we can now require out of state retailers to pay sales tax in the state where the items are shipped,” said Carr. “The purpose was to make sure the playing field was level and to standardize tax laws, bringing consistency and fairness to sales tax laws.”

The DOR has created a website, colorado.gov/tax, that will help retailers in Colorado navigate the new law, which includes frequently asked questions, access to a call center to have questions answered, and lookup lists for all the sales taxes. Webinars are also available on the website. “They have created a `hold harmless’ list, which means if a retailer uses the platform and the charge is wrong, they will be held harmless,” said Carr. Timing The new rule, which went into effect Dec. 1, could worry Colorado retailers expecting to ship thousands of packages out of their jurisdiction for the holiday shopping season. But Colorado Representative Tracy Kraft-Tharp, D-Arvada, chair of the sales and use tax streamlining committee, said merchants shouldn’t panic about the Nov. 30 deadline. The department has stated they won’t enforce the rule until March. “Business owners are thinking `how do we do this?’” said KraftTharp. “But the department has said they won’t enforce the rule until March 31, to give people the opportunity to figure out how to do it. They’ve put webinars up on their web page explaining how to do it.” SEE RULES, P11

December 6, 2018 The Belleview Park miniature train makes a circuit around the park during the summer from Memorial Day until Labor Day. This will be the second year the train has been returned to service as the Holiday Express. All the tickets for this year’s express have been sold for the train that will carry passengers on Dec. 7 and 8 and again on Dec. 14 and 15.

Englewood Holiday Express sold out All train seats already reserved for seasonal trips through Belleview Park BY TOM MUNDS TMUNDS@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

The miniature train wrapped in colored lights will run and Santa will be there, but all the tickets for seats on the trips around Belleview Park on the Englewood Holiday Express have been sold. The express will run four nights, Dec. 7 and 8 and Dec. 14 and 15. Each day the train will make the mile circuit of the park from 3:30 to 7:30 p.m. The train can carry 30 to 40 passengers per trip. The express is planned and organized by members of the Englewood Parks and Recreation Department. “We will still hold the celebration with decorations in the park, a stand offering hot chocolate and s’mores and Santa greeting children,” said Lindsay Peterson, event administrator. “This is the second year for the Holiday Express and we were a little surprised by the response to buy tickets ahead of time. We quickly sold all 2,100 available tickets and this is the first year we have sold all available tickets. The train will run four nights this year, but because of this year’s response we are talking about possibly adding

RULES FROM PAGE 10

According to Kraft-Tharp, the issue of who should get taxes on items sold over the internet has been a hot button for many years, and the new rules will level the playing field. “Before South Dakota vs. Wayfair, the law of the land was that internet sites could charge sales tax if they had a physical presence in the state,” said Kraft-Tharp. “This has opened the door for all states to say ‘we can fix this unfair competition problem and start telling internet sites they have to pay sales tax.’”

extra dates last year.” The Holiday Express trips began last year. To prepare for the event, the Belleview Park miniature train was decorated with colored lights. In addition the parks and recreation crews decorated many of the trees in the park, particularly those near the train tracks, with colored lights. The miniature train that will be transformed into the Holiday Express has run in Englewood since the early 1960s. The train was originally located at Englewood City Park, located about where the Englewood Civic Center is now. When the park was sold for construction of the Cinderella City mall, the train was located to its present position at Belleview Park. The train was originally owned and operated by the Englewood Lions Club. The club decided it could no longer keep the train going and turned it over the city. The train was built to resemble an early steam locomotive. It is powered by a tractor engine. The train annually operates from Memorial Day until Labor Day. Each year the train takes about 60,000 passengers for the one-mile circuit of Belleview Park. Passengers board the train at the depot. When all are checked and seated, the engineer calls “All Aboard” and the train begins its trip around the park. During the trip, the train rattles over a trestle and through a tunnel on the way back to the depot.

Kraft-Tharp said the new law could bring in as much as $48 million this year that would be collected and remitted to the state and up to $200 million each year going forward. “That will be enforced through audits and check to see who is paying and who isn’t,” said Kraft-Tharp. “There is an enforcement division at the department.” While the rule includes a small-seller exception for out-of-state retailers, with in-state sales of products that do not exceed $100,000 or 200 transactions annually, there are no exceptions for in-state retailers. “There is no minimum amount if your business is domiciled in Colorado,” said Carr.

We were exchanging gift cards. Nice but needless.

is the season. And with the season, many of us will have a chance to engage with customer service, or maybe better stated as having customer care opportunities. Whether we are physically going to the customer service WINNING department in WORDS the store, making a telephone call to the customer care department, or chatting online with a customer service representative, ‘tis the season to give businesses a chance to make Michael Norton things right. Now generally I find two ways in which people try and prepare themselves to make these calls or go back to the store to get the satisfaction they desire. The first is someone who really doesn’t like confrontation, and they agonize over having to make the call or go back to the store. They make sure they have their receipts in order and the packaging is intact so that they can make their case. But they are still mentally, physically and emotionally preparing for a battle. It makes them nervous, and in some cases, even sick as they prepare for a “no” instead of a “yes.”

The second group of folks look at it like it’s a game or a battle right from the beginning. They have no issue going online, calling the business or walking into the store. No, not walk into the store, they march into the store with a swagger like they are walking out of the locker room and onto the field to start the game or fight. They dial the number with authority and cruise through the prompts waiting for someone, anyone to pick up on the other side. Again, they too are prepared for war and not a happy resolution. Maybe you have seen the new television commercial for the Discovery Card. There is a young man gearing up to make a call to customer service to state that he doesn’t want to pay any annual fees. He readies himself, steadies himself, breathes, and then makes the call — only to be caught off guard by a customer care representative telling him that there are no annual fees. It’s only a television commercial, however it caught my attention as I reflected on my own experiences with customer service representatives recently. I truly believe the industry is doing some amazing things when it comes to ensuring that we as customers receive high-quality customer care.

Most of this year, until just recently, the mountains that provide Denver’s water supply experienced dry conditions. And portions of the South Platte River were closed in July to protect the habitat and aquatic life, due to low river flow conditions.

Whether it is training the people on the phones or in the stores on how to properly engage with customers, or the technology they are using and consistently upgrading, the use of artificial intelligence and data, and just better expectations and execution on the part of leadership, businesses of all kinds are making it easier to resolve issues instead of forcing us to fight the battle and still maybe lose the war. They do realize that when we win, they win too. So, as we approach the season, and we find ourselves having to find an answer, a resolution, a refund, or a replacement of some kind, I encourage us all to take a breath, ready ourselves, steady ourselves, and plan for a happy outcome. When we expect the best, look for the best, and treat others with respect, we will typically receive the best in return. It’s when we expect the

long-term drying on the fishery and agriculture of our region. Our community has come together to help solve this problem. When the long-overdue reallocation of storage space in Chatfield Reservoir is completed in late 2019, after decades of study and hearings, it will not only provide an expanded regional water supply and new recreation opportunities, but will also provide 2,100 acre-feet of an environmental pool of water specifically for release down the South Platte River and though our city. This water will then be available seasonally in dry periods and during inevitable periods of sustained drought. It will help keep our river healthy and viable. Important partners helped give life to this project. Part of this effort was led by The Greenway Foundation, which raised money for 250 acre-feet of the conservation pool from 19 municipalities, individuals worst, look for the worst, and ready ourselves for the fight, that is when we typically find ourselves in a fight. Again, kudos to the companies who are going above and beyond to train their customer care personnel in how to defuse and de-escalate tough situations and customers.

The Colorado Water Conservation Board has pledged funding for a further 600 acre-feet, followed by Colorado Parks and Wildlife agreeing to fund a massive 1,000 acrefeet of this space inside Chatfield Reservoir. As a landowner who is creating a 21st-century community for residents, many of whom are not yet born, and a conservation organization that supports innovative solutions to meet our most pressing natural resource challenges, we believe this level of environmental stewardship exemplifies why our Front Range remains one of the finest places in the world to live. We must commend the people for bringing this vision to life. This and other innovative so-

lutions — like recycling water, greater municipal conservation, and voluntary and compensated agreements with agricultural water users — will require new sources of public funding to secure our state’s water future. Our future is worth the investment. Broad environmental cooperation is vital to the responsible use of our state’s resources. We need to honor this effort as a model for future constructive cooperation that has, and always will, shape our Western lifestyle.

OBITUARIES APPELGATE

Richard “Dick” Appelgate 11/24/25 – 11/17/18

Richard Wayne “Dick” Appelgate was born November 24, 1925 to Mary Helen (McAfee) and Hiram Harrison Appelgate on a farm in Tama County, IA, the middle of 5 brothers. At age 13, his family moved to another farm near Ellsworth, IA where he met his future wife, Joyce Olson, in church. In World War II Dick served in the US Army, starting at Fort Riley, KS, in June 1945. Corporal Appelgate then was assigned to the Mechanized Calvary unit in Fort Knox, KY, finishing in Fort Ord, CA. and honorably discharged April 1947. While in the service, he wrote to his sweetheart Joyce and upon his return, married her March 14, 1948. In May of 1949, they welcomed their first daughter, Mary Elizabeth, then Linda Joyce in 1953, and Deborah Ann in 1956. In 1958, they left their Iowa farm and moved to Denver in pursuit of a career change. In Denver, they welcomed their son Robert Richard (Bob). The family moved to Happy Homes in Littleton in 1959. Dick and his family joined Littleton United Methodist Church in 1963. Dick served on many boards and committees, and volunteered exten-

sively. He served multiple terms as chairman of the Board of Trustees, participated in decades of Sunday School, and donated beautiful wood carvings to commemorate the church’s history. Dick loved camping and fishing with his family, gathering with friends, visiting family in Iowa, and woodcarving. He spent years as an Optimist Club member and donated 8 gallons of blood in his lifetime. Most of Dick’s career was with Public Service Company of Colorado, retiring in the 80’s. He is preceded in death by his parents, brothers William, Kenneth, and Harold, grandson Michael Tibbs, and his sons in law, Mike Akins and Jim Tibbs. He is survived by his wife of 70 years, Joyce, brother Max, children Mary Tibbs, Linda Akins, Debbie (Ron) Pierce, Bob (Cheryl) Appelgate, 11 grandchildren, and 5 great grandchildren. A Memorial Service was held Nov 26 at Littleton United Methodist Church. Dick was interred at the LUMC Columbarium. Donations can be sent to Littleton United Methodist Church for the Richard Appelgate memorial fund.

Youth orchestra aims to develop next generation

While the Smiths make everything from scratch, “kits are a wonderful place to start,” Smith said. “Especially for little kids because their favorite part is decorating it.” This year, the Smith’s gingerbread house has a “Great Gatsby” theme and will be available for public viewing at the Colorado Christmas Adventure event. With about 50 entries for the Gingerbread House Contest and Display at Colorado Christmas Adventure, it will be like visiting a mini city made of gingerbread, Smith said.

bridge was getting to spend time with my friends,” said Lindsey Whittington, 22, a senior studying civil engineering at the Colorado School of Mines. “The second-best part was seeing our hard work and theme come together.” Whittington and her team of five other Mines students made up one of 18 teams participating in the 2018 Denver Gingerbread Bridge Competition. The competition is a way for people to get into the holiday cheer while serving as a team-building activity, said Jeremy Crandall, the outgoing co-founder and co-chairman of the Structural Engineers Association of Colorado (SEAC) Young Member Group.

t some point, all musicians are going to have to deal with the stresses of auditioning. And while this is an important skill to master, there’s also something to be said for letting young musicians develop a love for the art first. That’s the option the Douglas County Youth Orchestra (DCYO) has embraced. “Instead of traditional auditions, we hold open rehearsals. This allows the students to bring their instruments and sit in the group COMING play with ATTRACTIONS and us,” said Thomas A. Blomster, the orchestra’s music director and conductor. “While we have divergent levels of students, all students want to be there, and they learn how to own their position Clarke Reader in the orchestra, regardless of ability.” The DCYO will be performing two winter concerts in Castle Rock to celebrate the season — the first at 11:15 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 8 at Christ’s Episcopal Church, 615 Fourth St., and the second at 1:30 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 9 at New Hope Presbyterian Church, 3737 New Hope Way. A professional percussionist and conductor for 45 years, Blomster believes in setting high expectations for orchestra members as a way to challenge them and hone their musical skills. “My expectations both musically and behaviorally are of the highest level,” he said. “In addition, we bring in professional coaches to work with the students in sectionals as well. I believe the DCYO is unique in the metropolitan area as it offers these experiences at the lowest price of any youth orchestra in Colorado.” The upcoming winter concerts are the culmination of a semester’s worth of work. Not only is it a chance for the students to shine, but it takes their learning to another level. “One of the reasons we perform a concert twice is because the first performance will ‘hardwire’ a lot of things, and the second performance gives the students a chance to do it again, but with a different perspective,” Blomster explained.

And “the experience you get when making something with your kids is always a win.” No matter if you’re into building the little, tasty houses, or simply viewing the elaborately decorative displays of them, for many, gingerbread houses are a favorite holiday tradition. Colorado Christmas Adventure For the Smith family — Coletta; her husband Craig; and their two daughters, Rochelle, 19, and Lynae, 16 — making a gingerbread house has been an annual tradition for the past 15 years. Smith especially enjoys it because she loves to see her children’s creativity bloom, and she loves all the conversations they have as a family during the process. “It makes for great memories,” she said. “It’s more about that than the finished product.”

According to Tori Avey, a food history writer, in her blog, “The History of Gingerbread,” published on the PBS Food website, gingerbread houses originated in Germany during the 16th century. They gained popularity when the Brothers Grimm published the fairy tale “Hansel and Gretel” in 1812. In the tale, set in medieval Germany, two child-aged siblings wander into the forest and come across the home of a witch, made of sweet treats and frosting. However, Avey writes, it is unknown whether gingerbread houses were inspired by the Hansel and Gretel folklore — which predated the 19th-century publishing of the tale by the Brothers Grimm — or vice versa.

The 18 teams consisted of a variety of groups, spanning from middle schoolers and college students to professional architects, engineers and contractors from across the Denver metro area. “It is great to see the different solutions that people come up with,” Crandall said, “and hear the stories of how their designs went from concept to reality.” Each bridge is judged on architectural merit by local architects; structural performance, meaning strength to weight, and people’s choice. The catch is that it has to be 100 percent edible. “We wanted to create a bridge that actually performed,” Whittington said, adding this is the second year she’s done the contest, and their arch bridge entry last year “failed miserably.” But she added: “We weren’t disappointed. Our bridge held 1,903.4 pounds.” Sela Guajardo, 13, a student at North Arvada Middle School, and her two teammates’ bridge would have collapsed during the testing, she said, “but it was definitely the best tasting of all of them.” Guajardo and her teammates are in the Girls in STEM club — a local nonprofit that works to inspire middle school and high school-aged girls to visualize and empower them to pursue STEM careers — and entered the Gingerbread Bridge Competition for the first time this year. The competition started in 2006 by

The event expanded, and by 2014, the SEAC Young Member Group started putting it on. For Guajardo, it was the joy of building something, and working collaboratively with her two friends on the project, she said. “Making something edible is fun because you have to get really creative with it,” Guajardo said. The three girls had fun getting together to work on the bridge, buying the ingredients — graham crackers, frosting, sprinkles, etc. — and getting to munch on these sweet treats along the way, Guajardo said. But perhaps the most fun part of it for them was “being able to get messy for long periods of time” while building it, Guajardo added.

Foothills Art Center While parents are downstairs shopping at Foothills Art Center’s Holiday Art Market, their children can have a “fun, messy time upstairs” making cardboard gingerbread houses, said Maura McInerney, the curator of education at Foothills Art Center in Golden. “Because it’s cardboard, and not gingerbread, it’s much simpler,” McInerney said. “But you still get the experience of making a gingerbread house.” All supplies — including the candy to decorate and the cardboard gingerbread house template — are included with the class, so the children have total creative freedom, McInerney said. This is the fourth year she has offered the classes, and there has not been one house that was the same as another, she added. The kids love the candy and being creative during the holiday season, McInerney said. “Kids are what makes the holidays so fun,” she said. “It brings the magic of the holidays alive when kids participate.” National Gingerbread House Competition “There’s no specific blueprint for making a gingerbread house,” said Carly Owens, 23, of Erie. “Anyone can add their own flair and let their creativity take over.” Owens grew up in Asheville, North Carolina, where the annual National Gingerbread House Competition, now in its 26th year, takes place. Her desire to make gingerbread houses was passed down from her grandmother, who was a professional baker. Owens made her first gingerbread

Cardboard gingerbread houses Foothills Art Center, 809 15th St. in Golden, is offering two sessions for children to make gingerbread houses out of cardboard templates. While the sessions are drop-in from 1 to 4 p.m. on Dec. 8 and Dec. 15, space is limited each day and pre-registration online is required. Cost is free for members and $12 per house for nonmembers. The class is recommended for children ages 6-12, but all ages are invited. To register or learn more, visit www.foothillsartcenter.org and select the date of the session you’re interested in attending from the calendar. house when she was a freshman in high school in 2009. It was with that house that she entered the National Gingerbread House Competition for the first time. Following that, each time she entered as a teen, she placed within the top 10. Owens eventually moved to Colorado, and this year, she was the only Colorado contestant of nearly 200 entries at the national competition. It was the first year for her to compete in the adult division, which she said consisted of a mix of professional pastry artists and hobbyist bakers. Although her gingerbread house — which was inspired by the movie “The Grand Budapest Hotel” — did not place, she had a lot of fun, Owens said. “It had been six years since I even touched gingerbread,” she said, “so it was a learning curve.” Owens may not enter the competition next year, she said, noting the time and travel it takes, but perhaps in 2020. Her advice: Make a gingerbread house for the sake of enjoying it, rather than worrying about it being pristine or perfect. Gingerbread houses entail togetherness, tradition, holiday cheer and nostalgia, Owens said. “They represent all those little things, all mixed together,” she added.

‘Twist Your Dickens,’ ‘Elf’ at opposite ends of holiday fare Shows are among theater productions marking the season in metro area BY SONYA ELLINGBOE SELLINGBOE@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

The past week led us to two of many local theatrical holiday celebrations — one for families and the other clearly for grownups—and the metro area theaters offer a range of holiday entertainments in both categories. Celebrate the talented local actors’ community who bring us laughs — and matters to think about — through the year … enjoy a performance this season! • Most readers have probably seen the 2003 movie, “Elf,” at some point in past years, but this musical (through Dec. 23 at the Arvada Center) delivers the story in song and dance — we were especially taken with the bunch of dancing, singing elves in Act 1 — with some sympathetic twinges! The story about restoring a spirit of Christmas among gloomy New Yorkers starts with a baby who accidentally slips into Santa’s sack during one of his stops and ends up back at the North Pole — to be raised by Santa’s elves. Buddy the elf is played by tall, lean Josh Houghton at the Arvada Center, an actor with a strong voice and the elf ’s wide-eyed innocence as he meets NYC. Santa (Colin Alexander) suggests that, as a human, rather than an elf, Buddy might want to look for his actual father, Walter Hobbs, who publishes children’s books — especially Christmas books — and has an office in the Empire State Building. Therein lies a tale ... Father Hobbs is a modernday Scrooge type, who certainly doesn’t have room for an elf in his world — which naive Buddy wanders into. Sharon Kay White, an Arvada favorite, rules the office — and the stage at points — as Hobbs’ secretary, Deb. Here, and throughout, production song and dance numbers break out — as they should in a proper musical. Choreography is by Kitty Skillman Hilsabeck and musical direction by newcomer Christopher Baggage. The score by Matthew Sklar, is pleasant, bringing in suggestions of snow and sleigh

Veteran Denver Actor Erik Sandvold, as Scrooge, hears about a scary future from the Ghost of Christmases Yet to Come in “Twist Your Dickens” at the Aurora Fox. COURTESY PHOTO bells, but not memorable. “Sparklejollytwinlejingley” is fun! Scenic design, by Laura K. Love made great use of projections throughout, with a few bits of furniture and such otherwise. Kids in the audience shouted advice to the cast at several spots during the performance, which suggested they were certainly engaged. This musical is a good theater introduction for the short set — perhaps at grade three or four and up — and of course, adults will catch some bits that little ones don’t, but I really love the idea that they will think of holiday celebrations that include a story told on the stage. Hobbs’ wife and young son, Michael, connect with Buddy and take him home with them. (His elf training comes in handy as he repairs a new toy.) He also connects with somewhat jaded Jovie, an office worker, and is awkward at romancing a girlfriend — he does the charming/awkward bit well. Director Gavin Mayer returns to the Arvada Center from his current spot as director of musical theatre at the University of Nevada in Reno. He has helmed a number of holiday musicals at Arvada in past years. • “Twist Your Dickens” at the Aurora Fox brings in a script by Second City writers — and former “Colbert Report”

writers — Peter Gwinn and Bobby Mort, who direct their imaginations to a retelling of Dickens’ “Christmas Carol” that is funny and fresh — and requiring really experienced comic actors to pull it off. New Fox executive director Helen Murray invited Washington, D.C., director Matthew R. Wilson, a comedy specialist, to helm this spoof, set in 1843, we are told. The spoof brings in solid Denver area actor Eric Sandvold as Scrooge — fun to see him take on some silly stuff in his

first Fox appearance. And he does it really well — from the first “Humbug!” (“Here it Comes!”) I think many people don’t realize what precision timing and expert delivery is required to pull off successful comedy. Sean Michael Cummings plays Scrooge’s mistreated clerk — and assorted other parts — while Ilasiea Gray is Mrs. Cratchit. Petit Jessica Austgen plays Tiny Tim (“please just call me Tim”) as well as a number of other characters. A shouting Seth Palmer Harris comes up from the audience early in the first act with opinions about everything that’s happening — and flows smoothly into the cast, playing any number of Dickens characters — Fezziwig, Scrooge’s nephew, and of course, those ghosts … who are a trip! Then there’s Charlie Schmidt with spot-on Jimmy Stewart/George Bailey snippets every so often and there are ongoing Denver area references worked in, as well as a bit of Charlie Brown’s Christmas … with appropriate costumes. Incidents from the book happen as the Cratchits wait for Christmas dinner in their corner With audience interaction involved, I’m guessing this show will be different every night — just leave any preconceptions about how it should proceed at the front door and relax as you watch accomplished actors at play! This one is not for the kids, but parents and grandparents should have fun.

Valor wins eighth football title Eagles down Cherry Creek in 5A championship game

Valor Christian quarterback Luke McCaffrey runs the ball as teammate Ethan Zemla (54) seals off a potential tackler against Cherry Creek in the 5A state championship game on Dec. 1.

BY JIM BENTON JBENTON@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA

The Valor Christian football team was once again playing in a state championship game on Dec. 1 at Broncos Stadium at Mile High. In that game, Valor completed an undefeated 14-win season and captured its eighth state title in 10 seasons with a 24-14 victory over Cherry Creek. The only time the Eagles didn’t make it to the state finals was last year after losing in the quarterfinals. Valor, under first-year coach Ed McCaffrey, won its fifth Class 5A tittle after capturing one 3A state crown and two in Class 4A. In 10 seasons, Valor has compiled a 39-2 record in state playoff action. The Eagles lost in the 2014 state title game to Cherry Creek and were ousted from the playoffs last season by Grandview. “We won my freshman year and last year we got upset in the quarterfinals,” said junior defensive lineman Roger Rosengarten. “We

said this year was a whole new team — hey it’s not last year’s team. We’re going to come back and be the best team in the state. We came back, won the state and it feels great to win.” Rosengarten and senior linebacker Ethan Zemla led a Valor defensive effort that contained Cherry Creek’s offense. Senior quarterback Luke McCaffrey, who has committed to play at Nebraska, led the Eagles’ offense, along with Jack Howell and receiver Kaiden Keefe. McCaffrey, son of the coach, has

been part of multiple Valor titles as he either watched or played with older brothers Max, Christian and Dylan. “This was the best one yet because it’s the one that is happening right now,” he said. “These are a great group of guys. We had a ton of guys step up. It was great to see Jack Howell step up. Chase Lopez stepped up and our whole defense played incredible. It was awesome to see everybody do what needed to be done. SEE VALOR, P22

herry Creek’s Dave Logan and Ed McCaffrey of Valor Christian had a lot in common even before they coached against each other in the Dec. 1 Class 5A state championship football game at Broncos Mile High Stadium. Logan and McOVERTIME Caffrey are friends who worked together as the Broncos’ radio play-byplay announcer and color analyst for five seasons. They often talked about high school football during red- Jim Benton eye flights to and from Broncos away games. Both were wide receivers in the National Football League. Logan, one of only three athletes to be drafted by NFL, NBA and MLB teams, was a standout athlete at Wheat Ridge High School and the University of Colorado. He played nine NFL seasons, eight with the Cleveland Browns and one with the Broncos. McCaffrey saw action in 13 seasons with the Giants, 49ers and Broncos. He won three Super Bowl rings, two with Denver and one with San Francisco. The connections, however, end when it comes to coaching high school football. Logan completed his 26th season of high school coaching and he made his seventh appearance in a state title game. Prior to the title game he had amassed 268 career wins and is the lone coach to win 5A titles at four different schools (Arvada West, Chatfield, Mullen and Cherry Creek). McCaffrey ended his first season as a high school coach and it was Logan who had a big influence on him applying for the job at Valor Christian. “I know he loves football and is passionate about it,” said Logan. “We had talked over our five-year partnership about him getting involved in some capacity. I didn’t know it would be this year at Valor. I know he’s got a really good staff and that’s important. It’s a program with a lot of good tradition and players. “In terms of when you first start there is a reluctance from other high school coaches to accept you if you are not in the mold of a traditional high school coach. “I experienced some of that. You have to keep you head down and work hard and earn the respect of the other coaches by how you coach, how your players play and how you conduct yourself.” SEE BENTON, P23

“It was awesome to play for my dad. I know my brothers accomplished a lot for this team. For the title game, our coaches had a good game plan to spread the ball out.” McCaffrey led the offense with his passing and running as he completed 18 of 27 passes for 169 yards, including a perfect 7-yard TD pass to Lopez. He ran for 68 yards and consistently kept plays alive with his elusive moves. Howell finished with 79 rushing yards and scored two touchdowns. Keefe had eight catches for 88 yards. The defense limited the Bruins to 103 yards rushing and 103 yards passing as Creek averaged just 3.7 yards per offensive play. Zemla had 12 total tackles and was in on two of the six sacks of Bruins’ quarterback Alex Padilla. Valor put together 84- and 67-yard scoring drives to grab an early 14-0 lead. Creek drove 80 yards in 14 plays with 3:16 left before halftime as Seamus Henderson scored on a 2-yard run. A bad snap for center on the extra point try was picked up by kicker Mac Willis who ran for the two-point conversion to trim the Valor lead to 14-8.

Cherry Creek’s James Walker, Jr. gets pulled down by Valor Christian’s Jaden Murray as Chase Lopez (29) closes in. PAUL DISALVO Five Valor penalties accounted for 53 yards on the Bruins’ scoring drive. Valor went ahead 21-8 with a 77-yard drive capped by the Lopez catch of a McCaffrey pass with 4:51 to play in the third period. However, Creek’s offense

responded with a drive and had the ball at the Valor 23yard line, but Padilla’s pass was tipped by Rosengarten. He pulled down the ball for an interception, and the Eagles turned the turnover into a 24-8 lead with Brian Brogan’s 32-yard field goal with 10:35

left in the game. “We were moving the ball,” Cherry Creek coach Dave Logan said. “If we go down and score there, it’s 21-15. But when you play in the playoffs and play good teams, you have to play your best football and we congratulate them. They

played better than us.” Rosengarten could sense it was time to make the play of the game. “I knew I had to make a play for my team,” he said. “It was a clutch moment. I tried to get my rush on but their offensive linemen were very good.” Creek (12-2) did manage another score thanks to another Valor mistake on a high snap on a punt, which set up the Bruins at the Valor 18-yard line. Padilla then connected with Vance Brazile on an 18yard TD pass to account for the final score with 4:58 still showing on the clock. Padilla, a rival of Luke McCaffrey dating back to youth league games, wound up hitting on 13 of 19 passes for 103 yards and the one TD. Jayle Stacks was the top Bruins rusher with 71 yards on nine carries. Sophomore defensive back Myles Purchase led the defense with nine total tackles and linebacker Alex Pell had eight. “We mixed up man and zone pass coverage and we knew we had to be strong up front because we would have to stop a powerful run game and we loaded the box at times,” said coach McCaffrey, the former Denver Broncos wide receiver. “We are aggressive on defense and like to pin our ears back, fly around and make plays. It was a great effort and all the credit goes to the kids.”

Logan knows all about the adjustments first-year coaches need to make. “My first year was 1993 as a head coach and we played Green Mountain in our first game and I ended up calling the same play three consecutive times because I brain-locked in terms of my play sheet and what I wanted to call,” he recalled. “Even though you’ve been around football a long time, there is a little bit of a learning curve for everybody. “Whenever you take over a program, I don’t care how talented the program is, there’s a process involved. The players have to get to know you, get to know the new coaches. The job Ed and the staff has done is exceptional. They are talented for sure, but it takes more than talent to win games.” McCaffrey felt welcomed in his debut season. “In the beginning for me the big challenge was not failing the kids,” said McCaffrey. “I wanted them to have a good experience, learn the game, love each other, play for each other and I wanted to do the best job of preparing them and putting them in a position to win and have success on the field. So there was some pressure there at the beginning. “Everyone has been cool to me. The other coaches in our league were awesome to me, very welcoming. I didn’t know if I would be accepted or not as the new guy. All I knew going into this is I love football, I wanted to coach. I realized I was blessed because I have a great group of kids. These kids were pretty special in terms of their hard work and selfishness so they made it pretty easy for me. So many of my coaches challenged me, they are incredible intelligent and they are in it for the right reasons to serve and share what they know about football with the young men that play for Valor.” McCaffrey’s four sons played at

Valor and were instrumental in the success of the Eagles football program. Max went on to play at Duke and saw action with NFL while Christian was a standout at Stanford and is playing for the Carolina Panthers. Dylan is a quarterback at Michigan. Luke, who has committed to play at Nebraska, played his final football for Valor in the state title game and he was also influential in Ed taking over the Valor coaching reins. “Lisa (Ed’s wife) and I are not going to know what to do with each other,” said McCaffrey. “One of the reasons I wanted to get into coaching at this time is because we will be empty nesters and I will miss the boys being at home and they have moved all over the country and are living their lives. “Luckily Luke is a lot smarter than me. It’s been tough on me pushing him. Those car rides home are long and he reminds me of all those mistakes I made as a coach but he has a strong disposition, personality. He’s the youngest of four brothers so he’s a pretty tough kid. I’m lucky to get to share this experience with him.” Luke McCaffrey talks a lot to his dad about football. “We talk all the time,” said Luke. “We have a good relationship. We can challenge each other and uplift each other.” Luke says he never felt any pressure from being the youngest of three talented older brothers coming from an athletic family and not once did he feel obligated to participate in athletics. “They encouraged us no matter what we wanted to do,” said Luke. “It just so happened we all found the same dream and wanted to pursue the same dream. It was really cool see us all bond together and grow closer and we grew up.” Jim Benton is a sports writer for Colorado Community Media. He has been covering sports in the Denver area since 1968.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Careful, Lamb. Don’t let your generous nature lead to some serious overspending as you contemplate your holiday gift-giving. Your social life kicks off into high gear by week’s end. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) A positive attitude helps you weather annoying but unavoidable changes in holiday plans. Aspects favor new friendships and reinforcement of existing relationships. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Demands on your energy level could be much higher than usual as you prepare for the upcoming holidays. Be sure to pace yourself. Friends and family will be happy to help. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Don’t allow a suddenly icy reaction from a friend or family member to continue without learning what caused it — and what can be done to restore that once warm and caring relationship. LEO (July 23 to August 22) A relationship seems to be unraveling, mostly from a lack of attention. It might be a good idea to ease up on whatever else you’re doing so you can spend more time working to mend it. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) New facts emerge that not only help explain the recent rift with a trusted colleague, but also might provide a chance to wipe the slate clean and make a fresh start in your friendship.

LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A family member’s personal situation is, fortunately, resolved in time for you to get back into your hectic round of holiday preparations. An old friend might bring a new friend into your life. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Pace yourself in meeting holiday pressures and workplace demands to avoid winding up with a frayed temper and a Scorpian stinger that lashes out at puzzled kith, kin and colleagues. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) A financial matter requires close attention. Also, news from a trusted source provides the means to help sort out a long-standing state of confusion and put it into perspective. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) This is a good time to reinforce family ties. Make it a priority to assess and resolve all outstanding problems. Start the upcoming holiday season with a full measure of love. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Don’t be pressured into a so-called solid-gold investment. Wait until the holiday distractions are over. Then take a harder look at it. You might find that the “gold” is starting to flake off. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) A former friend might be trying to heal the breach between you by using a mutual friend as an intermediary. Best advice: Keep an open mind despite any lingering bad feelings. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a way of saying the right thing at the right time. Your friendships are deep and lasting.
