Sigg pleads guilty to all charges Sentencing date set in November By Ashley Reimers

areimers@ourcoloradonews.com Austin Sigg, the 18-year-old accused of murdering 10-year-old Jessica Ridgeway, pleaded guilty to all charges on Tuesday, including first-degree murder, kidnapping and sexual assault on a child. The announcement was made just days before the trial was set to being on Oct. 3. District Court Chief Judge Stephen Munsinger accepted the plea and set a sentencing hearing for Nov. 18, which is expected to take two days. During Tuesday’s hearing, Sigg appeared in dress clothes leaving behind his jail apparel. It was made clear in the court that the decision to plead guilty was Sigg’s, goSigg ing against the advice of his counsel. On Sept. 30, Sigg’s attorneys contacted the prosecution team and told them Sigg wanted to plead guilty. This plea covers 15 charges, including the attempted kidnapping charge in the Ketner Lake jogger case. Sigg faces life in prison, without the possibility of parole until after 40 years. But during a press conference after the hearing, District Attorney Peter Weir said during sentencing, the prosecution will be asking for a sentence of life in prison, without parole eligibility. “Today Mr. Sigg pled guilty to all charges. He has been held fully accountable for his criminal acts. There was no plea bar-

There was no ‘deal.’ No charges were dismissed as part of a plea bargain,” Weir said. “However, three counts of felony murder merge into the count of first degree murder – after deliberation count. A person can only be convicted and sentenced to the murder of a person once.” Jessica’s mother, Sara Ridgeway and other family members were present for the hearing and the press conference, but did not speak to the media. Upon hearing the news of the guilty plea, prosecutor Dana Easter said it was still difficult for the family because of the ups and downs of the case. “The first person we called was the

mother, and it was difficult for her,” Easter said. “There is nothing joyful in this case. I think it was hard for the family to hear because you get your mind set for a trial and then to have it go away is difficult.” Westminster Police Chief Lee Birk spoke during the press conference thanking several law enforcement agencies for their hard work on the case. He said the date of the guilty plea serves as a milestone in terms of closure and the healing process for both the Ridgeway family and the community. “We want to thank the many public safety agencies and partners who assisted the Westminster Police Department in this case,” Birk said. “We want to also thank the Ridgeway family for putting their trust in our agency.” Jessica disappeared on Oct. 5, 2012 on her way to school in Westminster. Her disappearance triggered a massive search effort by law enforcement and volunteers. Parts of her body were found in a remote part of Arvada and later in Sigg’s home. Sigg admitted to kidnapping and murdering Jessica to his mother before law enforcement was called. He was arrested on Oct. 23, 2012.

Officials are trying to gather support — including financial — for the creation of an Interstate 25 Metro District that would raise money for infrastructure improvements on the highway. If approved, the district would be commercial only; no residential properties would be taxed. Adams County District 3 Commissioner Erik Hansen presented the preliminary plans to Northglenn City Council during its Sept. 16 study session. The preliminary plans include properties between 84th Avenue and State Highway 7. The proposed tax mill would be 10 mills annually — or about $1,000 for every $1 million of assessed evaluation. “There’s like $320 million of assessed evaluation there,” Hansen said. “If there were 10 mills that would be about $3.2 million a year. You can do quite a bit with $3.2 million a year if you’re a lean organization.” He said the main thing it could do is leverage other monies to help fund projects — such as new Park-n-Rides at 144th Avenue and Interstate 25 and Highway 7 and I-25, acceleration and deceleration lanes, new sound walls, landscaping and other amenities. “The I-25 PEL (CDOT’s Planning Environmental Linkage study) just completed I think identified something like $78 million worth of improvements that are needed along I-25,” Hansen said. He pointed out that with declining tax revenues and increased competition for money from other jurisdictions in the state, a metro district could be used as a funding source to jump start improvements for economic development and congestion relief.” “If you go to CDOT and say, ‘We got $5 million, give us 20 — and we got a bigger project,’ they’re more likely to say yes,” Hansen said. The metro district would have to be approved by the commercial landowners during an election. Hansen is promoting a May 2014 election so that the district could start collecting in 2015. He said the time frame is aggressive but doable. He has requested $25,000 from NATA (North Area Transportation Alliance) to go toward the overall goal of $150,000 to fund getting the district started. The start-up costs would include funding the election and the service plan. He is also approaching private sectors to raise the rest of the money. Hansen said he is not looking for monetary commitment from Northglenn. The service plan is a layout of the district — which does not have to be continuous or have the same mill rates across the board. Every city that has the district in it must approve the service plan, which cannot have amendments, so a lot of negotiating is involved, Hansen said. Hansen said Westminster was supportive of the idea of a district, and that he thinks Thornton will be as well. “At the end of the day, we all stand to benefit,” he said.

Storyteller helps others reach within He doesn’t remember quite what motivated him to offer a class to senior citizens on how to write your own life story. But then, for Garrett Ray, at 77 no youngster himself, life has been all about stories. The first page of his in-progress book starts this way: “Our stories begin as fragments in an attic trunk, nearly forgotten, then rediscovered, sometimes to our surprise. We pull out bits of fabric, examine the colors, move the scraps around, enjoy each one as a unique link to our past. Then we begin to place them side by side, discovering patterns we had not seen before, rearranging, looking again.” When you think about it, that’s who we are, isn’t it? A jumble of pieces steadily stitched into a narrative that somehow, one day, amazingly and unexpectedly, becomes a good story. You just have to see it. “Everybody … has stories to tell,” says Ray, in his soft and quick-paced voice, “if you can just get them to think that way.” The classes began in 2010 in the Highlands Ranch retirement complex he and his wife of 53 years moved to after a first career as a newspaper reporter and editor and a second one as a journalism professor. He calls this his third act. Offered once or twice a year for five hours over five weeks, the classes average 10 to 15 students. Even though he wrote weekly newspaper columns for more than 20 years, Ray uses Lois Daniel’s book, “How to Write Your Own Life Story,” to help teach his students. “A lot of them think if you’re going to write your life story, you’ve got to start with the first day,” Ray says. But you don’t. You look for the moments. “It might be a happy incident … or a house you lived in,” Ray says. “And that’s

where you ought to start, and guaranteed … you have enough stories to string together to make a pretty impressive package.” That’s what Dottie and John Talbott are doing. The couple, in their 80s, attended one of Ray’s classes last year. John, who can no longer type or write, is in a motorized wheelchair and speaks very softly. So he dictated his stories to Dottie, who typed them on the computer. “We figured out what things to talk about and what things to put in his memoir up to his sophomore year in college,” Dottie says. That’s when they met. “It was great fun,” she says, with a laugh. “I heard a lot of things I didn’t even know about him and we’ve been married for 63 years.” This winter, Dottie plans to write her part, which also will end at sophomore year in college. Then, she and John will compile the rest together. When the story is complete, one of their three daughters will add photographs and print the book. Their children, seven grandchildren and two great-grandchildren, Dottie says, “will know who we are.” ••• Ray’s passion for writing started when he was 11 in Greeley, where he grew up. He,

his younger brother and sister and a couple of friends published a weekly newspaper called “The Neighborhood News” for three summers. They wrote about lost dogs and vacation trips and home improvements. He learned a bit about storytelling from his mother, a reporter and editor at The Greeley Tribune. His tenure as editor and publisher at The Littleton Independent from the 1960s to 1981 won him state and national acclaim — he was recently inducted into the Denver Press Club Hall of Fame. And he continued sharing his love for storytelling with students as a professor at Colorado State University until retiring in 2001. When you get it just right, writing is a gift, Ray says: “The human being … the eccentricities of people, the joys of people, the sadness of lives. … Almost anything will shape itself into a story if you can figure out how to start.” He smiles, blue eyes earnest behind his glasses, as he answers a question about the writing of his life story. Working on it, he says. “I’ve got to give myself a deadline — I only respond to deadlines, I think.” But he has a good start. A white utility binder encompasses 70 or so pages, some copies of the “Scratch Pad” columns he wrote for the newspaper, others written more recently. Each carries a simple title. There’s “The house on the corner.” “When we turn the corner by the house, I always hope someone will be standing outside so I can stop and say, `I grew up here!’ Here is where my parents planted the iris garden, and here, my grandmother grew roses, feeding them coffee grounds each evening.” And “Playing back the old tapes.” “We carry old tape recordings in our unconscious minds. …” And “Farm boys” and “Understand-

th 24 Annual

ing Dad” and “Thanksgiving at Grandma Ray’s.” And “In 2007 I became old.” “I have begun to notice the darkening beauty of our mountain ridge against the last light in the western sky. I wait for the dusk, grateful for the purity, the clarity, the nightly gift. “I dance with Bailey, overflowing with 18 months of toothy grins and joyful rhythms, to `Sleeping Beauty’ and `Mary Had a Little Lamb.’ “I cry easily, in sadness, in joy, in gratitude, in celebration. “In 2007, I became 71. I forgave myself. I began to wonder what happens next.” Ray calls his in-progress book “Partial Recall” because he doesn’t remember every detail. Just bits and pieces stand out. His life story, he says, is not cohesive. “This is not going to have the nice, smooth flow that a memoir would have. I don’t know if it will work or not. But it doesn’t make any difference if it works or not if I’m happy with it.” In the end, he hopes his grandchildren and their children, whoever reads his words, will think “it was worth their time.” Remember the first page, where Ray describes stories as scraps of fabric that we constantly rearrange and lay side-by-side into stories that matter? Here is the last line to that paragraph: “Before our eyes, a larger scene emerges, full of memories and color. Finally, our patchwork quilts reveal the stories of our lives.” We all have one. We just have to see it.

Differences clear in D5 school board race By Vic Vela

ment mandates. “We have a persistent, stubborn achievement gap in our schools,” Van de Water said, referring to student testing scores that continue to show that students in certain demographics lag behind their peers. “I’m very interested in finding out how we align things from preschool through college, and making easy transition for students, throughout.” Witt said that he hears from parents in the district who are “proud” of Jeffco schools in general, but that he also hears concerns from those who believe that their voices aren’t being heard by district policy-makers. “They don’t feel the school board solicits community input before making decisions,” he said. And Witt especially believes that the board is “a little late to the game on public input” on the district’s plans to implement a virtual classroom dashboard. The dashboard, which is expected to be piloted next year, will collect student academic data in a singular database and is aimed at allowing teachers to better personalize instruction. However, opponents have expressed concerns over student privacy and security issues that the database could bring and they have questioned the role of the nonprofit that will fuel the dashboard — inBloom, which has received both national praise and criticism over the type of student data it is capable of storing. Witt feels that the district needs to heed the concerns that have been voiced by parents. “I do have some concerns over the risks to students’ privacy. What data might be gathered and how this database is being shared are areas of significant concern,” Witt said. “It’s essential that we not only secure the information, but we need to also agree on what information is being collected. Witt also said that the project — which will come at $2-$5 per student cost to the district in 2015, when the

vvela@ourcoloradonews.com Positions on a tax hike-funded overhaul of the state’s school finance system and a controversial student information database are just a couple of the major policy areas where two Jefferson County school board candidates differ. Ken Witt and Gordon “Spud” Van de Water, both of Littleton, are vying to fill an open seat on the Jefferson County Board of Education this fall. Their contest will determine which man will represent Jeffco’s District 5, an area that includes the cities of Littleton and parts of south Lakewood. The candidates are seeking to fill the seat that’s being vacated by outgoing District 5 director Paula Noonan, who will not be seeking re-election. Van de Water is a parent and a grandparent who touts three decades of work in education and policy research as a key area that separates him from his opponent. “If you want somebody who knows the policy world, what it means to work on a policy and how to get to a conclusion on an issue, then you might want to vote for me,” he said. Witt is a Colorado native with four children, who is active in churchbased youth activities. He believes that his background in big-business data security has prepped him for the type of leadership that he thinks is needed on the school board. “I have dealt with groups of people who have come at issue with different perspectives and different desires,” he said. “I try to get others to identify a common goal and get folks to agree on a solution.”

Differences on the issues

Van de Water said that, if elected, he will focus on issues through a student achievement lens, especially now that the district will soon be faced with implementing new student assess-

pilot periods ends — could end up costing more than what administrators think because of the potential purchasing of “new applications and new interfaces that will have to play well with inBloom.” Van de Water said he has studied the classroom dashboard issue and that he supports its implementation. “I am in favor of giving teachers the technology and the tools and the support they need to do better in the classroom,” he said. “I ask, ‘Is this a good thing for teachers?’ I think it looks like a good thing to me.” “You have security and privacy issues, but best I can tell, there are higher levels of security and more levels of security than we currently have (with current data systems). Is it perfect? No. you’re not going to get to perfect in this world.” The two men also disagree on their positions on Amendment 66 — the November ballot question that seeks $950 million in new taxes that will fund an overhaul of the state’s school finance system. Van de Water supports the ballot measure. “I think it’s very good that the state is trying to get back to a more adequate funding system of education,” he said. “We’ve lost $1 billion in funding over last four years.” But Witt opposes Amendment 66, in part because Jeffco tax payers will end up paying more into the system that what the district will receive in actual funding. “I don’t believe that the Amendment 66 structure is an appropriate way to fund education,” Witt said. “It’s bad for Jeffco.” Witt took a shot at Van de Water not having children who attend Jeffco schools, saying that a candidate’s “recent experience in the Jeffco school district” is important. But Van de Water called that a ridiculous criticism.

Center offers action sports indoors Skiing, snowboarding, skateboarding, biking classes available By Tammy Kranz

tkranz@ourcoloradonews.com Skiing can be expensive — by time you get all your gear, trek up the mountain and pay for your pass. The cost alone can deter many from even trying it out. Progresh — an indoor training center dedicated to action sports — invites people of all skill levels to give skiing (and biking, climbing, snowboarding, skateboarding and tumbling) a go. “It’s an outlet for kids and adults to try it first to see if they like a sport, to introduce them to it,” said Progresh co-founder Questor “Q” Sapnu. “This place is for beginners and professionals. We have skill coaches able to work with any skill level.” Progresh opened its doors Sept. 7 at 9499 N. Washington St. in Thornton. The 11,000-square-foot facility has 45-foot ceiling and features synthetic snow jump into an airbag with multiple drop-in platforms, rails, cliff drop, and a learning slope with synthetic snow for skiers and snowboarders. For skateboarders and bikers, there’s a mega ramp into an airbag with adjustable drop-in platform; an eight-foot drop into an airbag to practice stair drops; a flow park with a bowl, spine, vertical wall and mini-half; and a street course with ledges, rails, banks and quarter pipes. For tumbling, the facility has Olympicgrade trampolines, a spring floor, balance and trampoline boards and a harness system with twisting belts for the ultimate trampoline training. The main feature, however, is the custom-made airbag the center uses instead of foam. Students can use the bag with skis, snowboards, bikes, skateboards or by freedropping.

Progresh, an indoor training facility for ski, snowboard, skateboard, BMX and tumbling, opened last month at 9499 N. Washington St. in Thornton. The 11,000-square-foot facility has 45-foot ceiling and features plenty of areas to train. Photo courtesy of Progresh “It’s like landing in a cloud,” Sapnu said. While professionals do train at Progresh, Sapnu said that the environment is safe and encouraging and no one should feel intimidated to try out a sport. “We try to get everyone to support each other,” he said. The centers offers viewing areas with Wi-Fi and USB charging stations, a game room, computer lab for digital media editing and production, outdoor patio with views of downtown Denver and the moun-

tains and meals and snacks. “The videos on the website do not do it justice — you have to see this place in person to feel the energy, see the smiles — that’s where it really is,” Sapnu said. The cross-training facility offers a variety of classes, camps, drop-in sessions, group activities and even hosts birthdays and field trips. Sapnu and co-founders Kyle Henley and Mike Pies trained together at a place similar to Progresh in Copper Mountain — a

trip that sometimes took two hours in traffic. They worked together to create a similar facility in the Denver area to provide an easily accessible action/snow-sport destination for everyone, year round. “When visitors come here we want them to learn something, but we want them to think they just had the best time in the world,” Sapnu said.

Woman spreads lung awareness with race By Ashley Reimers

areimers@ourcoloradonews.com Patricia Lyman considers her lung cancer diagnosis a lucky one. The 16-year Westminster resident had come in to be screened for another health issue, but left with a Stage 1 lung cancer diagnosis in September last year. “My diagnosis was an incidental finding. I had no symptoms at all,” she said. “Most people find out about lung cancer after they have some symptoms, and by that time it’s usually at stage 3 or 4. I was very lucky.” After the diagnosis, Lyman underwent surgery to remove the cancer, and since then she’s had two clean CAT Scan screenings. The gratefully healthy Lyman is involved in the Free to Breath Denver 5K Run/Walk as an advocate for research and fundraising, hoping to spread lung cancer awareness. She said she wants to do whatever she can to help others in her same situation as well as prevent future lung cancer diagnoses.

I was very lucky.’ Patricia Lyman “As an advocate I help people become aware of the lung cancer symptoms and spread awareness,” she said. “Lung cancer is pretty much the number one cancer killer not just in the United States but the world. There is a great need for research, and for research to happen there needs to be funding.” The fourth annual Free to Breathe Denver 5K Run/Walk is Oct. 6 at Washington Park, 701 S. Franklin St. in Denver. Registration and check-in begins at 7:30 a.m. followed by the opening rally at 8:45 a.m. with

the start of the race at 9 a.m. Cost is $35 to participate and all proceeds support the National Lung Cancer Partnership, a nonprofit organization dedicated to doubling lung cancer survival by 2022. “Anyone with lungs can get lung cancer,” Lyman said. “Most people know someone who has been affected by the lung cancer and this event is a great way to help fund more research.” For more information, visit www.FreetoBreathe.org/denver.

Westminster City CounCil on the reCord Westminster City Council voted on the following legislation during the Sept. 23 meeting. Council members in attendance were Mayor Nancy McNally, Mayor Pro Tem Faith Winter and councilors Bob Briggs, Mark Kaiser, Mary Lindsey and Scott Major.

Contract approved of drainage way project

Council unanimously authorized the city manager to execute a contract with Merrick and Company in the amount of $193,394 to provide engineering design services for the McKay drainage way improvements located between Interstate 25 and Huron Street and authorized a design contingency of $19,000 for a total project cost of $212,394. The McKay drainage way project is a planned system of drainage conveyance facilities located in the general area between 136th Avenue and 144th Avenue from Zuni Street on the west to Big Dry Creek at Washington Street in the city of Thornton on the east.

The only remaining unimproved portion of the drainage lies between Interstate 25 and Huron Street.

Insurance purchase approved

Council unanimously authorize the city manager to enter into an agreement with the Colorado Intergovernmental Risk Sharing Agency for the purchase of high deductible stop loss insurance, and for claims management and other administrative services, in the amount of $491,245 along with a 10 percent contingency amount, $49,125, in the event the final quote comes in higher. The city annually purchases insurance to cover assets like buildings, vehicles, and equipment to protect itself from liability exposure resulting from claims brought against the city and its employees.

Bill passed to execute land sale

Council unanimously passed Councilor’s

Bill No. 38 on first reading authorizing the city manager to execute an amendment to the Contract to Buy and Sell Real Estate, in substantially the same form as attached, with Urban Pacific Multi-Housing, LLC and Pacific West Communities, Inc.; and to take all actions necessary to close this land sale.

OPINIONS / YOURS AND OURS

We love letters, but stay within lines In an era in which readers are more likely to post comments at the bottom of an online article or on a blog or on Facebook, we believe there is still a place for the good old-fashioned letter to the editor. Unlike online commenting, letters to the editor must go through something of a vetting process before being published. Largely, this is in order to maintain a measure of civility that, sadly, is often lacking online. On our opinion pages, we aim to provide a forum to stir community conversation. We appreciate diversity of thought and do not pick which letters run or don’t run based on our viewpoint. If you’re wondering why your letter wasn’t printed or are hoping to have one that is, read what follows. These do’s and don’ts will make the process easier for you and our editors. Do: • Your homework. In other words, check your facts. We have a small staff and can’t

OUR VIEW do this for you. If you’re unsure of something, look it up. If you include a nugget of information that is not widely known, include where you found that fact. • Express your opinion. Tell us what you like or dislike. We particularly appreciate it when you comment on our articles and opinion pieces regarding local issues. But state, national and world issues are also on the table, if they are of relevance to our readers. • Keep it short. Our policy calls for letters of 300 words or fewer. Sure, we try to be a little flexible, and from time to time, you might see a letter a little longer but still in the ballpark. If you must go way over the limit, it won’t run, at least not as a letter

QUESTION OF THE WEEK

Should Todd Helton be in the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame? Folks around Denver were asked whether they believe Helton is Cooperstown material, after the Rockies slugger belted his 369th career home run and 592nd career double during his final home game on Sept. 25.

“Yes. He played with a losing team for so many years, and he still produced. He pretty much defined what baseball players should be.” Josh Martinez, Denver

“I’ve seen his stats. If he doesn’t make it to the Hall of Fame then we ought to reconsider who else shouldn’t be in there.” Chuck Burton, Denver

“His numbers aren’t good enough. He was good for the Rockies, but there’s a lot of people there who have better numbers than he has.” David Lee, Denver

“If you take his stats at face value, then yeah. The guy’s stats are worthy.” Chris Bond, Denver

Columnists and guest commentaries The Westminster Window features a limited number of regular columnists, found on these pages and elsewhere in the paper, depending on the typical subject the columnist covers. Their opinions are not necessarily those of the Westminster Window. Want your own chance to bring an issue to our readers’ attention, to highlight something great in our community, or just to make people laugh? Why not write a letter of 300 words or fewer. Include your full name, address and the best number to reach you by telephone.

Email your letter to editor@ourcoloradonews.com

WE’RE IN THIS TOGETHER Our team of professional reporters, photographers and editors are out in the community to bring you the news each week, but we can’t do it alone. Send your news tips, your own photographs, event information, letters, commentaries... If it happens, it’s news to us. Please share by contacting us at newstip@ourcoloradonews.com, and we will take it from there. After all, the Window is your paper.

WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU If you would like to share your opinion, go to www.ourcoloradonews.com or write a letter to the editor. Include your name, full address and the best telephone number to contact you. Please send letters to editor@ourcoloradonews.com.

to the editor. Consider requesting a guest column instead — but we have limited space for these. • Email your letter to editor@ourcoloradonews.com. You can also email one of our editors, but it is more efficient to send your letters to the address specifically designated for them. • Let us know who you are. Include your full name, address (including city) and phone number with your letter. We just need to give you a call to make sure the letter was actually written by you. Yes, “letterto-the-editor fraud” does happen. Don’t: • Put words in someone’s mouth. You can write in support — or opposition — of another person, such as a candidate for public office, but don’t assign any thoughts, opinions or actions to an individual that haven’t been publicly documented. If you do so, we may consider it a news tip and investigate the validity of your claim, but we won’t run it as a letter to

the editor. • Buy a stamp. “Snail mail” isn’t efficient when it comes to letters to the editor. As mentioned, we have a lean staff and can’t take the time to retype your letter (which, we’re guessing, was written on a computer anyway). Email your letter to the address mentioned earlier. It will get to us faster, something you will appreciate if you want to see it published in the upcoming edition of the newspaper. • Inundate us with letters. By this, we mean from one person. We want everyone to have their say, so don’t expect to see more than two of your letters printed in any given month. • Be surprised if we edit for grammar or punctuation. We approach this very judiciously, however. A tip: DON’T WRITE IN ALL CAPS or use a lot of !!! • Use profanity or call someone a word you wouldn’t use in front of your mother. Your letters really do matter. We look forward to seeing more of them.

When ‘facts’ become fiction What do the following “facts” have in common? 1) We are currently on a pace to tie the all-time record low for Atlantic Ocean hurricanes in a year. 2) School vouchers do not raise achievement levels across the board. And 3) Chicago is the gun murder capitol of America. Answer: whether or not you believe these facts has more to do with your politics than whether the researchers were thorough and accurate. According to a new study by the National Science Foundation and Yale University, our political leanings will often dictate what facts we allow to penetrate our decision-making processes. Worse still is that sometimes we allow those biases to even change how we approach finding solutions to seemingly objective problems like simple math. And you wondered how it was possible that Congress can’t seem to balance a checkbook. Apparently, two plus two only equals four as long as neither George Bush nor Barack Obama asks the question. And you want to know what’s even worse? This study also suggests that highly educated people are even more susceptible to altering their process depending on their politics. Apparently, one of the skills you master as you stay in school longer is the ability to rationalize. Which explains college campuses, I guess. This sort of cultural bias towards information goes a long way towards explaining why we’ve become so polarized as a body politic. It is no longer possible to have discussions with opposition based on facts because nobody is willing to acknowledge the facts that the other side presents. We sift through the information, hunting for whatever factoids support our points of view, rather than taking in the information as a whole and assimilating it into our analytical process. It is one way to avoid cognitive dissonance, I suppose. You never really have to make an admission against interest in

a debate when all you have are interests. But it sure makes it hard to find common ground, the sort of common ground that leads to real solutions to problems. Of course, that presumes that the people tasked with finding solutions actually want to solve any problem other than how to win the next election. So when you tell someone about the hurricane drought, don’t expect them to reconsider their position on global warming; or when you talk about how the voucher program in Cleveland did not show widespread gains in educational achievement, don’t hold your breath waiting for an admission that school choice is not a panacea; or when you tell someone about Chicago and remind them that Chicago is, legally, a gun-free city, don’t expect a thoughtful question about the merits of gun control. Because it turns out that facts don’t matter any more. Apparently, if you want to change somebody’s mind these days, you need grainy black-and-white photos, ominous music, and pathos-inspiring voiceovers. And lies. Why not, right? It works in election after election. And if facts don’t matter, then why would truth be any more important?

Go on and get involved this election cycle

Don’t like the way your city councilors or school board members are running your government? Get involved! All across communities folks are either candidates for political offices, or they are cient sizing up good people who feel the call to As duty to make communities better. n’t Way back in 1965 I chose to make a difch, ference in my city of Westminster. I didn’t uter like what was being done to improve the ess water situation, mainly not having good er, plans to secure a long range supply, so I ant ran for a city council seat and won.

Short-termt hinking blurs big-picture vision

The need for instant gratification has truly compromised our ability to see beyond what is immediately in front of us. I mean in some cases we can’t even see the next three hours that are directly in front of us let alone three weeks, three months, or three years down the road. We want something and we want it now. I do agree that part of this insatiable need for speed when it comes to our wants and desires has been shaped by technology and the fact that we can access information with one or two clicks on our computer, tablet, and smart phone. But I also believe as a society we have developed a s. perceived need to keep up with our neighbors, family members, and our competind tors when it comes to business. s. We want what they have and we want it ple now. want You see, short-term thinkers limit o themselves to what they can have or achieve today instead of seeing the much e bigger potential of tomorrow. And whether tomorrow comes in a day, in a month, or over several years … tomorrow will the eventually come. And if we live only for the things we can have at our fingertips in this moment, we forgo the opportunity to enjoy ait- the rewards that come by careful planning, e is temporary sacrifices, saving, being patient, ne and willing to earn and wait for the things Chi- that will provide enjoyment and security in pect the future. of Near-term thinking or seeking is driven by an attitude of impatience. Big-picture visioning and pursuing is driven by a goalsnt oriented and results-focused attitude. The s, student will make a decision to blow off a os, homework assignment today in exchange for a good time tonight. The unemployed person will stop sending resumes and applying for the position ’t they truly want because they were not more offered a job today. The person seeking to lose weight or improve their physical fitness will avoid the gym because the fit- pounds are coming off too slowly or their h his endurance or strength is not improving rom rapidly enough. ty of There are countless scenarios where the shortcut and partial success are rationalized by the acceptance of fractional achievement of what we really desire. Our choice to accept the “almost-win” always seems easier at first, but ultimately leads to a life filled with “woulda,” “shoulda,”

“coulda” thoughts and regrets. Of course there are activities and tasks that require short-term thinking and immediate actions. However, when we allow everything we do to be driven by the near term, it is so easy to lose sight of the big picture. So what do we do about this instant gratification epidemic? The first thing we need to do is to adopt an attitude of patience and big-picture visioning. The second thing we need to do is to identify our goals. And as a best practice, categorize each goal into one of three buckets: near term, mid-range, and longterm. The first time that we go through this exercise we will probably notice that one of the buckets is filled with more goals than the other two. This is a good thing, as it will bring awareness to where our current focus lies. The next step is to go back and make sure that there is some level of distribution in all three buckets. Once we have taken the time to identify and prioritize our goals into these categories, we will begin to see and internally own the road map for our personal success. This is easier than we think; it only requires some time and thoughtful consideration to get started. And there is no time like the present to get started. How about you, is it about instant gratification or are you willing to put in the time, hard work, patience and sacrifice necessary to realize your goals and dreams? I would love to hear all about it at gotonorton@gmail.com, because when we get our heads and hearts around what our long-term future can possibly be, it really will be a better than good week.

If you are not on a voter list you can still register to vote. Just call your county clerk and recorder’s office and ask for the location of the nearest voting center. This is a new opportunity to get yourself eligible to participate in the democratic process with a minimum of effort. If you don’t do that you really must not care about your community. And if you aren’t registered then don’t complain about your government. I don’t agree with the “Tea Party” philosophy, but I sure admire their tenacity and fervor.

Good turnout

Last Saturday our Westminster Progres-

sive Homeowner’s Association hosted a candidate forum, and we had a good turnout. Lots of issues were discussed and I’m sure attendees came away better informed. That’s how our democracy should work, but it can only happen if citizens choose to get involved and do their part in making government work. So get informed and make sure your vote counts.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Support 3B

As a business owner, community member, and a father of four D50 graduates, I am voting yes on 3B for Adams 50 schools. I’ve signed both the front and the back of a paycheck, so I know that when it comes to investment, you need to focus on your return. When I see the news lately about the improvements at Adams 50 schools — three consecutive years of improved test scores, the opening of a STEM school, increased financial accountability measures — I see a good investment that will eventually help my bottom line and make Westminster a stronger community. The district has already cut budgets to the bone. I don’t want to see us lose our good teachers to other districts any more than I want to see my best employees walk over to my biggest competitor. Skeet Hartman, Westminster

Support Briggs

We are fortunate to have Bob Briggs as

a candidate for the office of Mayor of Westminster and I urge you to vote for him. As a long time resident of Westminster I have known Bob for close to 30 years and have always been impressed with his commitment to public service and, particularly, his commitment to Westminster. As county commissioner, RTD board member, representative to the Colorado legislature, and, now, city councilor, he has demonstrated this commitment and his leadership in ways that few can match. As just one of the many examples of Bob’s service to Westminster he chaired the Westminster Centennial Committee, which published a marvelous history of our city, “Westminster: The First 100 Years.” He not only made this happen but also led the effort that raised over $100,000 to make the project successful. If commitment to Westminster and examples of leadership in a wide variety of organizations are criteria for serving as mayor then I hope you will help elect him. Michael Hayes, Westminster

Jeffco School Board TONYA AULTMAN -BETTRIDGE

3) What areas should Jefferson County schools improve?

District 1 Background: Dr. AultmanBettridge lives in Westminster with her husband Glen and son, Will, who is in the eighth grade. All three Aultmanare Colorado naBettridge tives, moving to Jefferson County because of its excellent school system. She has dedicated her entire career in program and policy analysis and extensive volunteer hours to improving the lives of children. Contact: Email Tonya@tonyaforjeffcoschools.com; Phone: 303717-2395; website www.TonyaForJeffcoSchools.com

4) What would you do to increase partnerships with other organizations, such as city councils?

1) I would describe my leadership style as analytical, thoughtful, and collaborative. I enjoy working with others to make decisions based on evidence and the consideration of a variety of perspectives.

5) What do you make of inBloom as a data collection method to evaluate students’ progress?

2) I have over 20 years of experience in analyzing programs and policies that impact the lives of children, youth and families. I have experience in analyzing public policy through different views and making recommendations that lead to meaningful improvement. My communication skills allow me to effectively listen and respond to district stakeholders.

QUESTIONS 1) Please use three words to describe your leadership style. 2) Describe the skills that make you the best candidate for the job.

Terms Members for the Board of Education are elected to a fouryear term. There are three out of five seats open for election in District 1, District 2, and District 5. There are no districts with uncontested candidates.

3) I believe the district needs to expand its communication and engagement of parents as partners in education. I also believe that bridging the achievement gap is of vital importance to our community. 4) Part of my campaign has been to meet with city mayors and members of city councils, as well as local business leaders. I believe that effective ongoing communication and face to face interaction with these groups is necessary to strengthen partnerships within the district.

JULIE WILLIAMS

District 1 Background: A Colorado native and graduate of Arvada High School, Julie met her husband at North Arvada Jr. High, and Williams has been married for 28 years with two children. One child has autism, the other is gifted. Currently, she serves as co-chair of SEAC the Special Education Advisory Committee to Jeffco. Contact: Phone: 303- 829-2532; website WilliamsForJeffcoSchools. com 1) Open, honest and sincere. 2) Honest, responsible, communicator who listens, acts and respects, organized, flexible, plans, motivates and is effective. 3) Jeffco areas of improvement are to implement open door negotiations, turnaround interventions for struggling schools, increase and replicate high performing schools including charters, option schools and online options. 4) All options should be open using common sense and simple solutions where the communities voice is heard and valued. 5) I am in favor of a dashboard to assist parents and teachers communicate but NOT an international data collection system that has a disclaimer stating they are responsible if there is a breach in security, our district would be responsible. Our children and teacher’s information is private and should be protected. Undisclosed data points? One should ask; Why do they need this information to teach our children?

JOHN NEWKIRK

District 2 Background: Co-founder and longtime executive director of Second Wind Fund. Holds a law degree. Has served Jeffco Schools in a variLamontagne ety of leadership capacities over the last decade. His wife, Suzanne, teaches chemistry at Lakewood High School, and both his children attend Jeffco Schools. Contact: Phone: 303-517-6368; Email jeff@jeff4jeffco.com; website www.jeff4jeffco.com 1) Constructive, collaborative, balanced. 2) I have a track record of proven leadership in getting results for kids in our community. As a cofounder and longtime executive director of Second Wind Fund, I brought together thousands of families, scores of businesses, faith communities, and civic organizations with Jeffco Schools for the well-being and safety of our kids. I’ve also worked collaboratively and effectively on the board of The Jefferson Foundation and on Jeffco Schools’ Strategic Planning and Advisory Council. 3) Jeffco Schools face several fundamental changes, including new content standards, student assessments, teacher evaluations, questions around teacher compensation, and more. If managed effectively, these changes could have a great long-term impact toward improving student achievement and the quality of education we deliver to our kids. 4) I would continue to utilize great working relationships with leaders across the county and ensure the formation of a regular twoway feedback group between the schools and the cities. 5) I’ve spoken with many teachers who value the potential efficiency and evaluation power of inBloom. If there are appropriate assurances and plans around data security and privacy concerns, inBloom could prove to be a useful tool to help our teachers better meet the needs of each individual Jeffco student.

5) I believe that inBloom has the potential to be an important tool in personalizing educational goals for students and helping teachers and parents monitor progress more effectively. It must however be implemented in such a way to protect student’s privacy and confidentiality.

JEFF LAMONTAGNE

District 2 Background: John Newkirk is a 45-year Jefferson County resident and a graduate of the Jeffco schools. After earning an engineering deNewkirk gree from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, he returned to Jefferson County and started a business. John’s wife is a Golden High School graduate and they currently have three daughters in public schools. Contact: Email john@newkirkforjeffcoschools.com; website www. newkirkforjeffcoschools.com 1) Listen, Listen, Decide. 2) I’ve founded and run two successful Jeffco businesses, so I know how to allocate resources and minimize waste. I have 20 years of experience as a volunteer with nonprofits and youth, so I know how to engage and work with community members. I have executive experience, so I know how to set goals and assure they are met. Lastly, I am a proud Jeffco graduate, so I know from personal experience how important Jeffco teachers can be in our lives. 3) Jefferson County schools should assure that all students have access to the best possible education and that our resources are spent in the classroom. 4) School board decisions should be inspired by thoughtful community conversations that value all opinions while focusing on what’s best for our students. I would ask for more joint city council/school board meetings as well as study sessions where the business community is invited to discuss the skills needed to employ Jeffco graduates. 5) I’m not in favor of any system that collects sensitive student/parent information and uploads it to a national database. inBloom has not been tested as a method to evaluate student progress and we don’t yet know its total cost.

Jeffco School Board GORDON “SPUD” VAN DE WATER

District 5 Background: Parent and grandparent with three decades of education research and policy experience; 18 years running Van de Water his own business; 15 years staffing education boards; 25 years serving on boards; four postsecondary degrees; and seven years of military leadership training. Contact: Email spud4jeffcokids@ gmail.com; website spud4jeffcokids.com 1) Collaborative, thoughtful, dynamic. 2) I am an active listener, an astute questioner, a seeker of common ground, a future oriented thinker, an experienced analyst, a strategic planner, a trained researcher, a confident decision maker 3) My three top areas are: 1) continuous improvement in overall student achievement; 2) closing the achievement gap; and 3) a Board of Education where all five members work collaboratively on behalf of our 85,000 students. 4) I will support current and future collaborative projects like the Lakewood Boys & Girls Club that build the academic, athletic, and artistic talents of our students. 5) Technology is a tool the district provides its teachers and principals to do their jobs better. The current pilot project does not collect data; it organizes several databases the district already possesses so student academic data is more easily retrieved and can be formatted into a classroom dashboard to support learning. Security and privacy issues are clearly important in this work. The pilot is designed to meet all federal and industry standards for security and privacy. I support the pilot process and look forward to the recommendation of the district’s Data Management Advisory Committee in January 2014.

Adams 12 Five Star Schools RICO FIGUEROA

KEN WITT

District 5 Background: A Colorado native, Ken and his wife Deb have four children. Three graduated from public schools, and the youngest Witt is at Columbine. Has a degree in mathematics from CU Denver, has run profitable businesses and been responsible for data security at companies like Newmont Mining. Contact: Email ken@wittforjeffcoschools.com / Website wittforjeffcoschools.com; phone 720.383.4KEN (4536) / Facebook WittForJeffcoSchools 1) Visionary, thoughtful, respectful. 2) I have the skills to set measurable goals, track progress, provide feedback and help ensure the organization delivers results within budget. I have security and technology experience; I know how to leverage technology to improve efficiencies while keeping data safe. I know how to minimize waste, balance competing priorities and make tough decisions. I work well with people.

QUESTIONS 1) Please use three words to describe your leadership style. 2) Describe the skills that make you the best candidate for the job 3) Please list your top three priorities if elected. 4) What are your strategies to improve communication between the board and the public? 5) What improvements do you feel are needed most in the district?

3) Recognize and reward great teachers and principals; reduce wait lists by replicating successful programs; reduce remediation rates; and direct money to the classroom. 4) I would include representatives from city councils, chambers of commerce, and other community and civic organizations on committees and in board discussions. I would seek input from business and community leaders on what skills are needed for successful employment. 5) InBloom is the wrong technology solution. It will be hard to ensure student and teacher privacy. Parents won’t have enough information about the lessons their children receive. Costs may escalate as the district becomes committed to the platform.

Terms School board members are elected to a four-year term. There are four candidates for District 3, and two candidates running for District 4.

District 4 Background: I am married and have four kids. I mentored and tutored students in Adams 12 for about 10 years. I am passionate about seeing Figueroa students succeed academically and personally. Contact: www.ricofig.com; Email Rico@ricofig.com; Phone: 720722-0126 1) Approachable, involved and visionary. 2) I empower youth and adults in their giftedness and passions then gather them around a shared vision and achieving it together. I am a problem solver and can look at a situation from different angles, gather input, and consider the insights of others before making a decision based on principles. 3) Increase the value of parents and their input in the educational decisions of their students, create a partnership between the different groups including the board, administrators, teachers, staff, parents and students so we work together rather than against each other and increase the character development and healthy relationship education of our students and their families. 4) Bring school board meetings to the schools. We need opportunities for parents and community to interact with the school board in an open forum. It is also important for all school board members’ contact information to be easily accessible from the district website. 5) We need to work together and resist outside influences who impose their agendas on us. We must increase the supports to the families in the district. A student is not learning if their family is in shambles. We need to make communication to parents and the community clearer and more frequent.

AMY SPEERS

District 4 Background: I am an involved advocate and mother. I have been a nurse for over 23 years, working with children and families including NICU, schools and public Speers health. Contact: www. amyspeersforadamscounty.com 1) Communicative, approachable and collaborative. 2) I have worked as a school nurse for many years in neighboring districts, working with teachers to provide a healthy school environment. While my son attended Adams 12 schools and after his graduation I have been an involved parent in the district and community. 3) My top three priorities are to work to foster strong relationships between schools, parents and the community, make certain the district hires and retains exceptional teachers and staff who inspire students to succeed and dedicate myself to making sure every child at Adams 12 has access to a wellrounded public education 4) Effective communication between the board and the public is essential. Active community involvement can be obtained when the environment encourages active participation. Families, teachers and staff need to feel they can speak to the board. I want to discuss concerns and celebrate successes in an open and welcoming environment. 5) Preparing students for their future after Adams 12 needs to be a top priority. Every student deserves the best public education we can provide. Communication and relationships between parents, staff and administration need to be fostered and encouraged. Create a transparent budget process that includes all stakeholders.

Adams 12 Five Star Schools KATHY PLOMER

QUESTIONS 1) Please use three words to describe your leadership style. 2) Describe the skills that make you the best candidate for the job 3) Please list your top three priorities if elected. 4) What are your strategies to improve communication between the board and the public? 5) What improvements do you feel are needed most in the district?

District 3 Background: I have three children who attend neighborhood schools in Adams 12. With a master of public health degree from University of Plomer Michigan, I have worked 20 years in public health. Contact: www.kathyplomerforschoolboard.com; email Kathy@ kathyplomerforschoolboard.com 1) Responsive, collaborative and solution-oriented. 2) I have been a parent leader in Adams 12 for the last 12 years. Through my work as a PTO president and on the Steering Committee for the District School Improvement Team I have gained in-depth knowledge of the challenges facing our large, diverse district and I have studied the district’s budget and facilitated community discussions on district spending priorities. I have evaluated and helped write numerous school academic improvement plans. I am a listener, a problem-solver and have a proven record of leadership and service in Adams 12. 3) Provide exceptional learning opportunities for students that prepare them for life and foster a love of learning, build and utilize strong school/community partnerships and create a transparent budget process that reflects community values.

Terms School board members are elected to a four-year term. There are four candidates for District 3, and two candidates running for District 4.

4) Provide more opportunities for dialogue through issues forums in the community and more two-way channels to communicate with the board. 5) Adams 12 is a great school district but we can make it better by making sure all students show significant growth in learning each year, by increasing our graduation rates and by better engaging parents as partners in their child’s education. Working together we can make Adams 12 a top district in the state.

DAVID ELLIOTT District 3 Background: Accountant, systems field engineer, Citizens Advisory Budget Committee, Lowry Redevelopment Authority, resident of Colorado for 20 years. Contact: Phone: 303-362-0254

Elliott

1) Teamwork, friendship and cooperation. 2) I have served on public committees for more than 10 years, graduated from the University of Wyoming with a degree in business administration, served on the Citizens Advisory Budget Committee and the Lowry Redevelopment Authority. I have also worked as an accountant for more than 20 years, many of those in a volunteer capacity. 3) Apply for more federal, state, and local grants to increase our budget, ease the frustration between the school board and the teachers union, and help our children learn more modern skills so they can be more competitive in the global marketplace. 4) Invite the public to our meetings and share the minutes from those meetings. We could provide a simpler method of communication where every parent will be able to send us comments and requests via email. We could also provide a time for public comment at each of our meetings. 5) We need to increase our budget. We need to provide our teachers with the tools to give our children a superior education so they have a greater opportunity for success in the future.

DEBBIE CHRISTENSEN

JOSHUA BASTIAN

District 3 Background: Self-described Adams 12 mom committed to educational practices and policies that maximize student Christensen achievement. Bachelor’s degree in Spanish Secondary Education. Master’s degree in English composition. Community leader, former teacher with an emphasis on gifted and atrisk students. Contact: http://DebbieForAdams12 1) Envision, inspire and empower. 2) I’m the only candidate who brings a balanced perspective to the board. As a mom with children in the district, I understand parents’ hopes and fears when sending kids to school. As a student, I overcame challenges to achieve success. As a teacher, I invested my heart, mind and energy in my students. As a leader, I served on academic boards, advisory councils, and evaluation committees. 3) My priority is to inspire students to reach their greatest potential by facilitating parent involvement, empowering teachers and staff and demonstrating administrative transparency. I want Adams 12 to be known for unifying stakeholders, inspiring dedication, promoting accountability, and producing results. 4) I will actively create opportunities to listen to parents, students, teachers and administrators. That information will guide my decisions. 5) We must give parents and other stakeholders an authentic voice, increase transparency, acknowledge progress, clearly communicate, and carefully implement strategies that produce results. I want people to choose Adams 12 for their kids.

District 3 Background: Bachelor’s degree in accounting, history minor from CSU, accountant with Department of Natural Resources for two years, specialist with DeBastian partment of Labor and Employment for two years, manager with McDonalds for 10 years, married and have lived in Adams 12 for 8 years Contact: www.joshbastian.com; Phone (303) 954-8638 1) Win-win, results oriented and budget conscious. 2) I have worked within the constraints of governmental budgeting. I have experience in bringing opposing sides together to form solutions. 3) Bring what is working from schools that are succeeding to schools that are struggling. Fix the budget to make it sustainable without yo-yo spending increases and cuts. Continue to raise the standards within the district and thus increase the graduation rate. 4) Improve transparency in the board meeting process. Have contact information for board members available on the district website. Increase the number of communications made to the public via district web postings. 5) The biggest single improvement would be better internal communication of what is working to other schools within the district so that lessons learned can be implemented in more places which will allow more students to succeed. The next biggest improvement that is needed is a consistent sustainable budget. This sort of budget does not implement new large programs that require cuts when the next budget year shows they cannot be maintained.

Performances will be 7:30 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays, 1 p.m. on Wednesdays and 2 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. “This is an adaptation, but there are whole sections and speeches right out of the novel, so most of us went through and read the book,” said director Charlie Oates. “There are a lot of obvious challenges, but that’s really exciting for me because the solutions are always going to be really theatrical.” The story focuses on Phileas Fogg (Dustin Bronson), a man stuck in a routine and mostly solitary life that leaves him with little contact with the outside world. His French valet Passepartout (Graham Ward) is the only person he really spends any time with. He is a member of the Reform Club in London, and when he gets into an argu-

ment about the validity of a new claim that it is possible to circle the world in 80 days, he finds himself taking a wager that put both WHAT: Creede’ Reperhis life and tory Theatre’s production money at risk. of “Around the World in 80 “The play Days” starts with WHERE: Arvada Center Fogg and his 6901 Wadsworth Blvd., daily routine, Arvada and it beWHEN: Through Oct. 27 comes obvi7:30 p.m. - Tuesdays ously that he through Saturdays has to change, 1 p.m. - Wednesdays that some2 p.m. - Saturdays and thing like Sundays. this trip has COST: $38 to $48 to happen,” INFORMATION: 720-898Bronson said. 7200 or www.arvadacenter. “He has all org this confidence, but once he goes on the trip, a lot of that gets stripped away, and you see him become more human.” Ward describes Passepartout as an everyman character, who either gloriously messes everything up or saves the day. “He’s extremely interested in the world around him, and has a childlike

nature about him that makes him the opposite of Fogg,” Ward said. “You seem him as a really passionate, life-loving person.” Bronson said there are small moments throughout the show that really show how the two men actually respect each other, as different as they are. The numbers for the play are particularly astounding — 80 days to go around the world, with five actors playing 39 different characters over seven continents. Bronson is the only actor who plays just one character, since he’s on stage so much. “I like actors playing a lot of different characters,” Oates said. “It’s a vocal and acting skill that is really fun to exploit and work on.” Graham said that all the characters — and the fact their played by so few actors — makes the play more unique, and creates a much more collaborative experience for those involved. He added that after the shows audience members like to pick their favorite character from the 39 created on stage. Oates said that at the end, he hopes that audiences learn the importance of getting out of your house and seeing new things. “It’s an epic adventure,” Bronson added. “It relies a lot on the imagination of the audience, which I really enjoy.”

I have the deepest respect for Denver restaurant owner and super chef Jennifer Jasinski (Rioja, Bistro Vendome, Euclid Hall) for her stellar performance in Bravo’s “Top Chef Masters,” which ended sadly not in her favor on Sept. 25. In losing, as part of the final three, she was nothing but gracious, of course. Here’s what James Oseland, editor-inchief of Saveur magazine, had to say about the end results: “I thought I had a handle on Jennifer’s excellence as a cook, and then during the finale meal, she served us her paella gnocchi. My God, it was the single best dish I ate all season — so perfectly balanced, so beautifully executed, so lovely to look at. Unfortunately, for her chances at winning the season, her other three courses — while very, very good — didn’t come anywhere near the glory of that dish. Still, if we’re handing out prizes for individual plates of food, this one is the season five gold-medal winner.” Not to be overlooked was her remarkable job of snaring the most money for her charity: $35,000 for Work Options for Women, a Denver nonprofit that teaches food service skills to women in poverty. “I have no regrets at all about this experience,” Jasinski said after being defeated by chef Douglas Keane. “Top Chef Masters” win or lose aside, Sept. 25 was still a good day for the Denver chef. Two of her restaurants, Rioja and Euclid Hall, were named among the Top 25 Best Restaurants in the October edition of 5280 magazine.

Another Boulder best 

The University of Colorado-Boulder is back in the top 10. No, not its football program, but on Playboy magazine’s top 10 party schools. CU ranked third in Playboy’s 2013 list in the October issue. West Virginia University topped the list, followed by the University of Wisconsin. CU topped the list in 2011 and has been a regular in Playboy’s poll, which began as the top 40 party colleges in 1987. CU did not make the list a year ago. This year’s list was determined by Playboy’s editors, who used data from resources including the National Center for Education Statistics, the NCAA and the U.S. Economic Census, as well as feedback from Playboy’s more than 12 million social media fans. The 2012 top party school, University of Virginia, failed to make the 2013 list.

Restaurant Week does the splits

Denver Restaurant Week(s), one of the most popular events in town for the generous portions for a small price, is doing a double take by splitting its personality with two weeks spaced out during the year. In observation of the event’s 10th anniversary, Visit Denver’s Denver Restaurant Week will double the fun by holding one week from Feb. 22-28 and a second week Aug. 23-29. The new price per meal per person is $30, FYI ... Not a bad deal when you factor in inflation with the cost of food, etc. As you may recall, in several of the previous years, Denver Restaurant Week Parker continues on Page 18

was two weeks, which in many cases put a mad crush on diner volumes, although the financial gains, in many cases, were well worth the effort. “A summer version of the event offers restaurants a lot of interesting serving and meal options,” said Richard Scharf, president and CEO of Visit Denver, the creator and organizer of DRW. “Restaurants will be able to offer outdoor dining and feature fresh Colorado produce. We anticipate that summer menus will be very different from the winter ones, and they will be able to showcase the farm-to-fork movement that is so popular in the state.” In 2013, a record 355 participating restaurants served 436,650 meals.

areimers@ourcoloradonews.com October is Fire Prevention Month and to spread the word, the Westminster Fire Department is providing learning opportunities throughout the month to teach adults and youngsters fire safety tips. Fire Prevention month started after the Great Chicago Fire in 1871. Since then the President of the United States proclaims Fire Prevention Week to land during the week that includes the date of the fire, Oct. 8-9. But the city extends that tradition the entire month. This year’s national theme is “Prevent Kitchen Fires.” “Kitchen fires are the number one cause of fire injuries in the U.S.,” said public education officer Sherrie Leeka. “The biggest things we are trying to remind people about are never leave cooking food unattended and when it comes to grease fires on the stove, always just put a lid on it and turn off the heat.” Although the theme is geared around kitchen fires, Fire Prevention Month also focuses on integration of fire safety behaviors into daily activities. Leeka said it’s very important for families to have a home escape plan with two ways out, practice the plan twice a year and to always check smoke alarms. During a recent call, the fire department responded to a structure fire at 3 a.m. on Sept. 23. The firefighters found the fire in the dryer, extinguished it and removed the dryer from the home.

October is Fire Prevention Month and this year’s theme is “Preventing Kitchen Fires.” The photo above is an example of a past kitchen fire the Westminster Fire Department responded to in September. Courtesy of the Westminster Fire Department Nobody was hurt in the fire because of the smoke alarm. “The smoke caused the alarm to sound and the family evacuated and called for help - saving their home from serious damage and more importantly, possibly saving their lives,” said Public Information Officer Diana Wilson. To reach the community with fire tips, the fire department is hosting an open house on Oct. 19 at Fire Station 4 as well as manning a booth at the Halloween Carnival on Oct. 26 at City Park Recreation Center. Leeka and some other firefighters are also sharing tips through an edu-

cational program for third graders at Westminster elementary schools. During the program, Leeka will be teaching the students about arson and home exit drills through fun games. And every child goes home with a fire safety bag. “We really focus on teaching the kids what arson means and that they can go to jail if they’re involved in arson,” she said. “It’s amazing how many kids don’t know what it means. So it’s important to teach them the consequences.” For more information on fire safety, visit www.firepreventionweek.org

Man found guilty Talking and cooking go together of shooting Gomez shot police officer, then fled the scene Staff Report Following a four-day trial, a Jefferson County jury found Larry Lynn Gomez, 34, guilty of shooting a Westminster police officer in November 2012. The jury trial began on Sept. 16. Gomez was found guilty of attempted murder of a police officer and first degree assault. On Nov. 7, 2012 a Westminster police officer made a traffic stop at 72nd Avenue and Sheridan Boulevard. Gomez was the driver of the car and was stopped for what appeared to be a routine license plate violation. As the officer got out of his marked patrol car and approached Gomez’s car, Gomez leaned out of the car window, shot the officer, and then sped away. On Nov. 6, 2012, Gomez was in Denver where he is

alleged to have fired shots at Denver Police officers during a traffic stop. The Denver District Attorney filed charges in that case and a trial date in Denver has been set for Nov. 18. Working together with Westminster, Denver and Aurora police, the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office and District Attorney investigators arrested Gomez in Aurora two days later, on Nov. 9, 2012. “We are very pleased with the outcome of our trial,” said District Attorney Peter Weir. “Fortunately, in this case the officer didn’t sustain life-threatening injuries. But anyone who fires at a police officer will be held accountable. Great police work and cooperation between these agencies resulted in Mr. Gomez’s swift arrest and prosecution.” This is Gomez’s sixth felony conviction. Prosecutors have filed Habitual Criminal counts. The trial on those counts will be on Oct.10.

Nationally we talk with children an average of about 30 minutes a day. Fifteen of those minutes are spent on management and directions preparing to go somewhere. That leaves about 15 minutes of actual discussion. Reading with children and discussing books add minutes, but having a quiet conversation is a challenge for most families. Grandparents who help with after school care can often add valuable minutes during a fun activity like playing cards or ball, drawing, or cooking. Simple cooking together can be powerful. Good food gets children’s attention and helps open conversations. While talking, have fun making these mice and pumpkins pizza rolls.

Materials Needed:

Muffin baking tin, refrigerated pizza dough, toothpicks, spaghetti sauce, jam, colored or chocolate frosting.

What To Do:

If you are cooking after school, ask children to tell you one good thing

that happened today or have them bring a paper they made to the table and talk about it. Usually they will tell you more than one thing once they get going. Ask them if there was anything that made them sad or worry, too, especially if they seem to be very quiet or troubled. Even very young children can help open a can of refrigerated pizza dough. The poof explosion is a great beginning to fun. One can makes about eight rolls. Divide three-fourths of the dough into 1½-inch balls and place them into spray coated muffin tins. Pizza dough is handy because children don’t need to let the dough rise before placing in the oven. Use the rest of the dough to make 16 one-half-inch balls

for mice ears or 8 balls for pumpkin stems. Children may come up with many creative ideas like flowers, suns, cat, teddy bear, or monster faces. Bake at 400 degrees. Starting at about 8 minutes check that the rolls are not too hard, or crunchy. Take the small balls out first since they cook quickly. When the bread is cooled, poke a toothpick into each ear or stem and place at an angle. Use other toothpicks or a new watercolor paintbrush to make faces with spaghetti sauce, colored or chocolate frosting, or jam. Chocolate chips melted in a little hot water are a good chocolate frosting. The recipe is fun for birthdays or family gatherings when cousins need something quick and easy to do. For safety, observe children taking out the toothpicks before eating. These rolls rarely make it to the dinner table.

WESTMINSTER POLICE REPORTS Suspicious incident: Officers responded Sept. 19 at 2:45 p.m. to a suspicious incident at Casa Estates at 860 132nd Ave. The maintenance manager said she was driving through the trailer park and saw a Hispanic male about 20 years old standing in front of one of the trailers. After thinking it didn’t look right, she backed up to find the male had gone. She saw that the window next to the front door was pushed open and the blinds appeared to be disturbed. While the manager called the police, another maintenance worker kept an eye on the trailer and said he heard footsteps coming from inside the trailer. The owner was contacted by phone and said she was at work and that nobody had permission to be inside. Additional officers and a K-9 responded. The response officers entered the trailer through the opened window and found nobody inside. The homeowner was advised to call the police when she got home to say whether or not was Jobanything #: 33137-14 Size: 6.78" x 6" Branch: 139-Denver

missing. There is nothing further. Theft, unauthorized use of financial device: A desk duty officer was contacted Sept. 16 at 2:07 p.m. in reference to a theft. A 65-year-old Arvada woman said she was at a coffee shop at 10611 Westminster Blvd. when someone removed four of her credit cards and $350 in cash from her wallet. Three Hispanic individuals – two female and one male – are believed to be suspects. When she got home, she had calls from her credit card company regarding three large purchases at the Target in Westminster. The charges totaled $3,303.20. There is nothing further. Theft: A 22-year-old Denver woman was arrested Sept. 15, 1:29 p.m., at Walmart at 7155 Sheridan Blvd. A loss prevention officer saw the woman select several items and conceal them in a backpack, which was also store merchandise. She then paid for the backpack, but not the items inside. The total value of the items was $186.31. Color(s): 4c Bleed?: N Pub: Colorado Community Media

The loss prevention officer detained the woman in his office but, due to a heavy call load and higher priority of calls related to the flooding within the city, police response was delayed. Following store policy, the loss prevention officer released the woman after some time, but obtained the woman’s identifying information for the police. Theft: A 48-year-old Westminster man reported a theft Sept. 15 at 12:58 p.m. to a desk officer. He said he had parked his truck in the parking lot at 3811 W. 68th Ave., where someone stole the rear license plate. The officer told the man how he could get new plates from the Department of Motor Vehicles. There is no suspect information. Items in the police reports are compiled from public information contained in police department records. Charges or citations listed don’t imply guilt or innocence, and all people are presumed innocent until proven guilty.

Academy defeats rival in homecoming game Pinnacle still winless for season By Kate Ferraro

kferraro@ourcoloradonews.com After breaking his finger during a game against Sheridan, The Academy quarterback Joey Ray was unable to compete in the homecoming game against Pinnacle Sept. 28 at North Stadium. But it didn’t matter, because his replacement helped the team to a much-needed triumph. Junior Devan Caswell, who usually plays running back, stepped up on the Wildcats’ homecoming day, scoring two touchdowns and one two-point conversion, assisting his team to a close 32-29 victory. “He did a great job for us,” Academy head coach Park Vogel said. “He’s young; it was his first time playing quarterback so I thought he did a pretty good job.” Pinnacle didn’t make the defeat easy for The Academy. The Timberwolves were on the Wildcats’ back the whole way. Caswell ran in the first touchdown of the game in the first quarter, while Academy’s J.J. Pita completed a two-point conversion. Pinnacle answered right back with a touchdown and two-point conversion of their own, tying the game at eight points apiece. The Timberwolves scored twice within three minutes in the second quarter, completing the point-after-touchdown only once, taking the 21-8 lead. The Academy running back Zach Morgan scored just a few minutes before halftime, tightening the score to 21-16 after successfully completing another two-

point conversion. “We’ve got to correct all our mistakes,” Vogel said. “We had a bushel full of mistakes. We do something good then give it back. We need to tighten up our blocking.” With one minute 30 seconds left in the half, Pita intercepted the ball from Pinnacle quarterback Hector Venegas. The Academy pushed the ball downfield until 23 seconds left in the half when Caswell ran the ball in for his second touchdown of the day. Pita completed the two-point conversion for the 24-21 lead at halftime. Wide receiver Anthony Ramirez sealed the deal for The Academy scoring their final touchdown of the day, plus a twopoint conversion by Caswell for the 32-21 lead. Caswell said he enjoys playing with Ramirez and trusts he will always be there to catch his passes. “Just to have confidence in someone to catch the ball, it’s great to rely on him,” Caswell said. Pinnacle scored again with a two-point conversion, but it wasn’t enough. The Academy won their homecoming game 32-29. “It’s always big because it’s a conference game and Pinnacle is a big rivalry,” Vogel said. “You have kids that know kids, you have relatives that go to both schools, it’s a big game.” The Academy completed four twopoint conversions for eight points. Vogel said they go for two points after every touchdown since their kicking situation isn’t the greatest. The Academy is now 2-3 overall, 1-0 in league and will travel Oct. 4 to a 3-2 Woodland Park team. Pinnacle dropped to 0-6 and will go home Oct. 5 to play Faith Christian.

State’s racial gaps narrow in education Economic disparities stay unchanged over two years By Burt Hubbard

I-News at Rocky Mountain PBS Black and Latino adults in Colorado narrowed some of the wide education gaps with their white counterparts last year, according to an I-News analysis of new U.S. Census Bureau data. Colorado no longer has the largest gaps in the nation in college graduation rates between black and white residents, and both Latino and black adults saw high school graduation gaps narrow to their lowest levels in decades. “That’s good news all the way around,” said Lt. Gov. Joe Garcia, who also is executive director of the Colorado Higher Education Department. “It’s the result of more focus and more collaboration between K-12 and higher education.” However, income, poverty and homeownership disparities between whites and the state’s largest minority groups remained unchanged between 2010 and 2012, the analysis found. An I-News investigation published ear-

The Jaguars (5-1, 2-0) will host Conifer Friday at 4 p.m. at Trailblazer Stadium. Faith Christian: The Eagles got their second consecutive shutout victory handling Middle Park 41-0 Friday at Middle Park High School. Faith Christian scored 22 third quarter points to blow open a game that was 13-0 at halftime. Junior Daniel Landewisch rushed the ball 18 times for 177 yards and a touchdown. The Eagles (4-2, 1-0) will play at The Pinnacle Saturday at 11 a.m. Golden: The Demons let their potential first victory of the season slip away falling 13-7 to Littleton Friday at Colorado School of Mines. Although they threatened late in the game Golden, playing in its homecoming game, could not find a away to tie the action and the Demons fall to 0-5 on the season. First year head coach Jason Neely has had his work cut out for him as he continues to rebuild the program. Golden (0-5) will play Monarch Friday, 4 p.m. at North Area Athletic Complex. Green Mountain/Standley Lake: After big back-to-back wins the Rams were shut out by Standley Lake 28-0 Friday at Jeffco Stadium. Seniors Jordan Downey and Trey Muller combined for 105 yards on 25 shared carries and the Gators used a stout

lier this year of six decades of Census data found that minority gains made in key economic and education areas had eroded over time. In many cases, the disparities between Latinos, blacks and whites were wider in 2010 than they were in the 1960s and 1970s. The latest Census data from the 2012 American Community Survey of states and their largest cities and counties found across-theboard increases in minorGarcia ity high school and college graduation rates since 2010. The percent of black adults 25 years of age and older with college degrees rose from about 20 percent to 24 percent during the two years. That narrowed the gap with their white counterBailey parts to less than 20 percentage points, compared to 23 percentage points in 2010. White college graduation rates inched up less than 1 percentage point to 43 percent in 2012. As a result, Colorado no longer has the largest gaps in the U.S. between white and black adults. It now ranks third behind Connecticut and Massachusetts, the I-News

analysis found. Sharon Bailey, a former Denver Public Schools board member and a member of the Colorado Black Round Table, said the state’s attention to education disparities may be starting to pay off. “I do think there has been a bigger spotlight put on graduation rates and remediation,” Bailey said. The round table is holding a community forum at Manual High School in Denver Sept. 28 on minority education and economic gaps. The college graduation gap between Latino and white Colorado adults remained unchanged in the new report, exceeding 30 percentage points, and was still the largest in the U.S. Both Latino and black adults continued to narrow the gaps in high school graduation rates. Black rates rose from 86 percent to 89 percent and Latino rates rose from 65 percent to 68 percent between 2010 and 2012, while white rates stayed at about 96 percent. Both gaps are the smallest since 1960. However, Garcia said most new jobs in the state in the coming years will require more than a high school degree. “A high school degree just isn’t going to cut it,” he said. “When we look at Colorado’s economy, we know that some 70 percent of

the jobs that will be created in the next 10 years will require some post-secondary credentials.” Both Garcia and Bailey said the state needs to step up its efforts on educational attainment. Bailey said Colorado needs to look at factors behind minority successes and replicate them. Garcia said the state should work on eliminating barriers to minorities completing college, such as the high rate of remedial classwork, while expanding programs such as concurrent enrollment, which allows students to take college class while still in high school. “We have to do a better job if we want to have a strong economy long term.” The gaps in economic areas such as family income and homeownership either remained unchanged or widened slightly between 2010 and 2012, the analysis found. Family income and poverty gaps widened between white and black residents, while homeownership gaps widened between white and Latino households.

defensive effort to stop Green Mountain. Green Mountain is however coming off consecutive wins where it outscored their opponents 77-3. The Rams (3-2) will host Dakota Ridge Friday at 4 p.m. at Jeffco Stadium. Jefferson: The Saints improved to a perfect 6-0 after a 44-7 dismantling at Clear Creek on Friday. One of the best sports stories in the state continued and Jefferson has outscored its last three opponents 114-13. The Saints (6-0, 3-0) will try to take that momentum to Platte Canyon where they will play Saturday at 1 p.m. Lakewood: The Tigers tough-luck season continued with a 48-13 loss to Chatfield Friday at Jeffco Stadium. Lakewood gave up 227 rushing yards and four rushing touchdowns and were blown out for the first time this season. But even though Lakewood has a 1-4 record, three of its losses have come by a total of 13 points. The Tigers (1-4, 0-1) will play Bear Creek Thursday at 7 p.m. at Jeffco Stadium. Pomona: The Panthers scored 44 first half points and then took their foot off the gas in a 44-8 victory over Boulder Friday at North Area Athletic Complex. Pomona attacked early and often scoring 23 first half points behind senior running back Chris Marquez. The win was the Panthers third straight and their only loss was a 19-15 loss to Cherry Creek one month ago. Pomona (4-1, 1-0) will play at Legacy Friday at 7 p.m. at North Stadium. Ralston Valley: The Mustangs suffered

a rare big loss at the hands of Fairview 4318 Friday at Recht Field. Ralston Valley only gave up 44 rushing yards but allowed almost 400 passing yards by senior Anders Hill. The Mustangs (3-2, 0-1) will have a chance to get their offense restarted against Boulder, Friday at 7 p.m. at North Area Athletic Complex, before a huge meeting with Pomona the following weekend. Wheat Ridge: In a meeting between two of the state’s top five 4A teams the

Farmers were shut out 20-0 by Montbello Friday at All-City Field. Montbello scored 13 second quarter points and then used outstanding run defense to neutralize a usually potent Wheat Ridge offense. In addition, the Farmers gave up 398 rushing yards and three rushing touchdowns. Still looked at as an elite 4A team, Wheat Ridge (3-2, 1-0) will host John F. Kennedy Thursday at 6 p.m. at Trailblazer Stadium.

Book shares life of firefighter “Flames and Smoke Visible: A Fire Fighter’s Tale” By D.S. Lliteras Rainbow Ridge Books $17.95 / $21.95 Canada 196 pages The air conditioning is on. It’s been on a lot this summer because, without it, you’d probably melt. Yes, you’re hot, and we’re not talking Wow-You’reLooking-Good-Tonight hot. We’re talking about Sitting-In-Front-of-the-A/C-VentsJust-to-Survive hot. Whew! And you know, there’s one group of people who willingly spend hours, if needed, in a place that’s even hotter. In the new book “Flames and Smoke Visible” by D.S. Lliteras, you’ll read about one of them. While many people complain about work stress, D.S. Lliteras has a job that almost killed him: He’s a firefighter and, while on a fight, he was stricken by a heart attack. An EMS team – including some men he

worked with – took him to a nearby hospital, where Lliteras spent a weekend recalling his job. For most workers, an 8 or 10-hour day is usual, but a firefighter may pull a “halftrick” (12 hours) or a “full-trick” (24 hours). He might spend that time at his home station, or he might report as fill-in, which could mean assignment to a different job than he’d be used to doing. He might fight fires. She might perform CPR. Lliteras remembers a time when his shift included

midwifery. No matter what a firefighter’s position, the “brass” could hit at any time, signaling an emergency. When that happens, everything in the firehouse is put on hold: hot meals go uneaten, showers untaken, bladders unemptied. A crew usually knows the nature of the emergency they’re facing when they leave the “apparatus floor” – but they rarely know its full extent. It may be a burning car, a fight made more urgent when someone is trapped in the front seat. It could be a house fire that needs “knocking down,” requiring teamwork, special equipment, and a deep trust in those who are

fighting fire behind you. It could be a medical emergency, a domestic violence call, or a three-alarm conflagration. It could result in an extinguished fire, or “unwarranted guilt.” As Lliteras remembers all this, and as he gets some bad news from his doctor, he also recalls one thing about his job: “I loved it. God help me, I loved it.” At first, “Flames and Smoke Visible” starts out a little odd. Author D.S. Lliteras begins this skinny memoir with a major fire and an even more major heart attack. I wondered if his story could possibly continue with that level of excitement. I’m happy to say that it could, mostly. Like any job, firefighting has its down-time but Lliteras nicely mixes the quiet with the heart-pounding. Book reviewer Teri Schlichenmeyer may be reached at bookwormsez@realaspen. com.

News for hunters in regions impacted by flooding A variety of outdoors news is surfacing at this time of year. Here is a sampling. Small game hunting licenses, Habitat stamps and waterfowl stamps are all required as fall hunting seasons approach. Hunting and fishing licenses now expire on March 30 each year. Licenses and stamps can be purchased at sporting goods license agent outlets or online at www.wildlife.state. co. The Parks and Wildlife Division are diligent on pursuing those who violate state game laws and regulations. Two recent high profile investigations resulted in the arrests of 12 people all fined with Colorado hunting privileges forefitted. The State’s Operation Game Thief program is the process leading to awareness, investigation and in many cases arrests. Many of the poachers are identified simply by the general public or other hunter’s anonymous

calls of suspicious tips to 877-265-6648. Verizon phone users can call #OGT. US Fish & Wildlife Service work with the state since many poaching cases involve out of state individuals. The recent devastating flood have caused considerable damage to many game management units, specifically 7, 8, 9, 19, 191, 20, and 29, S1, S19, S37 and S57. Hunters with licenses in those areas may be eligible for

refunds or preference point reinstatements. For those affected, call your local Division of Parks and Wildlife Office or Headquarters at 303-297-1192. If your hunting interests lie in upland game birds and you typically make the trek to Kansas or Nebraska it is a good to followup early with hunting organizations in those states and to check out Colorado pheasant hunting opportunities. The Kansas Sport Hunting Association at 785-296-2009 or online at info@huntkansas.org will start your planning. Colorado Pheasants Forever is busy promoting and educating hunters on this states opportunity. Pikes Peak Pheasant / Quail Forever Youth Outreach and Chukar Hunt are set for Oct. 13. Call 719-593-7770 to participate in the hunt with your young hunters. The Thornton Cabela’s grand opening Aug. 15 offered visitors a drawing for 2013

Chevy Silverado 2500 crew cab pickup. That lucky person among the estimated 5,000 was Terry Corman of Fort Collins. The keys will be presented soon to this lucky outdoorsman. Colorado Parks and Outdoors is offering teachers the “Basic Archery Instructor certification workshops provided and co-sponsored by the Colorado Archery in the Schools Program. This engaging native shooting activity is growing in Colorado and across the nation. “During the 2011-2012 school year participants in grades 4-12 in Colorado involved more than 100 Colorado schools and over 7,000 schools nationally” according toTabbi Kinion, program director for the State program.
