MAYOR RON CITIZENS RECOGNIZED FOR CONTRIBUTIONS TO COMMUNITY

Ron Rakowsky rrakowsky@ greenwoodvillage.com 303-486-5741

At the September 10 City Council meeting, I had the honor of recognizing Village resident and Mrs. Colorado International Melissa Heideman, Cherry Creek High School (CCHS) Baseball Coach Marc Johnson, and the entire Cherry Creek High School Baseball team with proclamations that highlighted their contributions to the community.

CCHS Baseball Coach Marc Johnson with Mayor Rakowsky and Councilmembers Gary Kramer, Jeff Roemer and T.J. Gordon.

Melissa Heideman, honored as Mrs. Colorado International in April 2012, competed for the Mrs. International title against contestants from throughout the country and finished in the top 10. Melissa is a dedicated volunteer who works to raise awareness and support for the Preeclampsia Foundation and the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women campaign.

For many of our parents and children that have grown up in the Village area, attended CCHS, and played for the Bruins, we all can appreciate the work and commitment of one of Cherry Creek’s finest coaches, Marc Johnson. Coach Johnson has managed the CCHS baseball team for the past 40 years. His recent success includes winning his eighth state title along with 26 league championships and the Don Mattingly World Series Title in 2012. Coach Johnson has served as a leader and mentor to many students, like several of our Councilmembers who played for Coach Johnson in high school. Coach Johnson’s work has contributed to the success of thousands of students who have achieved great things after high school, in their careers, and in their lives. On behalf of the City of Greenwood Village, I thank Mrs. Colorado International Melissa Heideman, CCHS Coach Marc Johnson, and the

I-25/ARAPAHOE ROAD INTERCHANGE ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT NEARING COMPLETION An Environmental Assessment (EA) is now complete for the I-25 and Arapahoe Road interchange. This new construction will reduce congestion and improve traffic operations and safety for the traveling public. The EA identifies an Action Alternative (Improved Partial Cloverleaf ) and a No Action (do nothing) Alternative and their associated transportation, social and economic, and environmental impacts. An open house was held last month for the public to review findings of the environmental analysis and learn about the next phase of the project. Written

FUNDING FOR ARAPAHOE ROAD AND YOSEMITE STREET INTERSECTION OBTAINED Federal funding was granted by the Denver Regional Council of Governments (DRCOG) for improvements to Yosemite Street and Arapahoe Road. Improvements to this intersection are an important component of the recommended improved Partial Cloverleaf improvements that I discussed on Page 2 for the I-25 and Arapahoe interchange. The improvements will include additional turn lane capacity on Yosemite Street that will allow for greater green signal time for Arapahoe Road. Due to the proximity of Yosemite Street to I-25, improved traffic operations at Yosemite Street will also benefit operations at the I-25 ramp intersections. While these improvements to Yosemite Street can be considered the first phase of the improved Partial Cloverleaf interchange improvements, this project will provide standalone benefits. The proposed improvements are estimated to cost $5 million, with $3 million funded by the federal government, and $2 million from local agencies.

BARK FOR ART Who let the dogs out? What a great turnout for the first Bark for Art event at Westlands Park in September. This exciting dog festival, hosted by the Greenwood Village Arts and Humanities Council and Kuni Lexus, was a fun event for the entire family and many of our four-legged friends who seemed to appreciate all the attention. The proceeds from this event will benefit all the arts programs offered by the Village and hosted at the Curtis Arts & Humanities Center. You can read more about the event and see the photos on page 20 of this Newsletter.

DISCOVER ART SCAVENGER HUNT The Greenwood Village Art and Humanities Council is hosting a “Discover Art� scavenger hunt October 4-19 with an adult reception on October 27 at the Curtis Center. Entrants will look for art by various artists at different locations in the Village. Tickets are available at Greenwood Village City Hall and the Curtis Center.

MONTHLY FILM FESTIVAL Film Festival Flix and Comedy Works have partnered to offer an award-winning film series on a regular basis. The series opened in September and will continue to offer additional films monthly that might otherwise be difficult for people to see. The next films are set to open on October 9. A special compliment goes to Benjamin Oberman, creator of Film Festival Flix for his effort to bring this to Greenwood Village. Benjamin was raised in Greenwood Village and graduated from Cherry Creek High School. His parents, Paul and Nancy, continue to live in Greenwood Village.

ENSURING A SAFE

community

WHAT WOULD YOU DO?

It may seem like it can only happen in movies or narrated in your favorite non-fiction book, but what if you find yourself or your family in a life-threatening situation and you have a leading role. What would you do? Would you know how to react? Sometimes what may seem as an easy decision will be one of the most difficult to make and any wrong move could cost you. The Greenwood Village Police Department wants citizens to be prepared with critical information to know if you ever find yourself in a trying situation that puts you in the wrong place at the wrong time. Knowing proper procedures to follow will be vital to surviving any dangerous situation or confrontation.

DATE RAPE Date Rape is when someone forcibly has sex with someone else. The rapist might use physical and verbal threats, emotional blackmail, or alcohol and drugs. Rapists are not always strangers and anonymous attackers. Rapists could be your friend, a boyfriend or ex-boyfriend, a co-worker, someone you meet at a social gathering, or someone you love and trust. Even if you know your attacker, it is still rape. Date rape can happen to women of all ages but young women between 15 and 24 are at highest risk. Rape is committed by men of all ages but the largest group of offenders is between the ages of 17 and 30 years of age. Men can be victims, too.

PREVENTION • Avoid secluded places. • Don’t spend time alone with someone who makes you feel uneasy or uncomfortable. • Never leave a social event with someone you have just met or don’t know well. • Stay sober and aware. If you’re with someone you don’t know very well, be aware of what’s going on around you and try to stay in control. • Don’t accept drinks from other people. If someone offers to get you a drink, go with the person to order your drink. Open containers yourself and keep your drink with you at all times, even when you go to the bathroom. If you realize you left your drink unattended, pour it out. • If you feel drunk and haven’t consumed any alcohol — or, if you feel like the effects of drinking alcohol are stronger than usual — get help right away.

DATE RAPE DRUGS

The Greenwood Village Police Department works to protect residents and businesses from crime, but to effectively sustain a crime-free environment requires an active, engaged, and aware community. Remember — the most important single act you can

do is to be aware of your surroundings at all times and call the Police to report crimes or suspicious activities! By going with your instincts, your actions could help deter a crime in progress or save the life of a neighbor.

Rohyponol and GHB are called the date rape drugs because when they are slipped into someone’s drink, a sexual assault can take place without the victim being able to remember what happened. Rohyponol (“roofies,” “roopies,” “circles,” “the forget pills”) works like a tranquilizer. It causes muscle weakness, fatigue, slurred speech, loss of motor coordination and judgment, and amnesia that lasts up to 24 hours. They look like an aspirin — small, white and round — and are colorless and flavorless. When dissolved in liquids, they can take effect in as little as 20 minutes. GHB (also known as “liquid X,” “salt water,” or “scoop”) also causes quick sedation. Its side effects include drowsiness, continued on page 9

continued from page 8 nausea, vomiting, headaches, dizziness, coma and death. The drug’s most common form is a clear liquid, although it can also be a white, grainy powder.

WHAT TO DO IF YOU HAVE BEEN RAPED • Get medical attention as soon as possible. • Call a friend or family member who can be with you and give you support. • Report the rape to the Police by calling 9-1-1. • Preserve all physical evidence of the assault. Do not shower, wash, or change your clothes. • If you think you have been assaulted while under the influence of Rohyponol or GHB, seek help immediately. Try not to urinate before providing urine samples; collect any glasses from which you drank. • Write down as much as you can remember about the assault. • Don’t isolate yourself. Rape is a crime and should be reported. • Get counseling and call your nearest rape crisis center. For more information, please call the Greenwood Village Police Department at 303-773-2525. GV

GET READY FOR

GREENWOOD VILLAGE IS READY FOR THE SNOW SEASON The Village Public Works Department is ready for the snow season. The Greenwood Village Snow and Ice Control Plan will be implemented to enhance the safety for citizens and minimize disruptions to the traveling public.

SNOW SHIFT HOURS Village personnel who perform road and park maintenance during the summer months also conduct snow and ice removal operations in the winter. A weather service provides up-to-the-minute information regarding weather conditions. Snow shift hours begin when a snowstorm begins. There are three shifts with 12 to 13 personnel on each shift. The shift hours are 5 a.m. to 1 p.m., 1 p.m. to 9 p.m. and 9 p.m. to 5 a.m., all days of the week, to include holidays. In order to ensure that all equipment is available, two mechanics are on-call for each shift to handle any equipment problems.

EQUIPMENT The Village owns and maintains a variety of vehicles to ensure effective snow and ice control operations. Equipment

includes 12 plow trucks, one anti-icing truck, one slide-in tanker, one grader, and one loader with plow for snow removal operations on roadways. In addition, there are three ATVs (All-Terrain Vehicles), six small pickup trucks with plows and many hand-held snowblowers and shovels used to clear the trails, sidewalks and parking lots.

ICY CONDITIONS To help prevent unsafe traveling conditions caused by freezing, Village crews may apply anti-icing material to first priority roadways. After ice has formed on roadways, IceSlicer is used. Ice-Slicer is a natural, homogenous product which has superior melting power, is less corrosive, effective at lower temperatures, and less harmful to concrete, wildlife, and vegetation than the traditional salt and sand mix. IceSlicer leaves minimal residue that needs to be swept up after storms, therefore reducing the particulate in the air which has a major positive effect on improving the air quality.

FIRST PRIORITY ROADWAYS All roadways in the Village are classified into either first or second priority. The first priority routes include the high volume roadways that connect major sections of the community, all school bus routes and residential roadways which have been designated as main thoroughfares. Heavy snow accumulations may require repeated passes over priority one roadways before priority two roadways are plowed. Operations are repeated until the storm stops and all roadway surfaces are cleared to ensure accessibility and safety.

SECOND PRIORITY ROADWAYS Snow and ice control operations begin in secondary areas (residential neighborhoods) after first priority roadways have been cleared. Snow is plowed and piled to an area that does not block traffic flow. Snow cannot be piled in the center of the roadway because thaw/freeze conditions will cause ice on the roadway. Residential roadways are not plowed from curb to curb to avoid covering sidewalks and blocking driveways. Removal of snow piles will only occur when safety or accessibility has been jeopardized. If possible, remove vehicles from the roadways during storms for better clearing of snow.

USE CAUTION WHEN DRIVING NEAR SNOWPLOWS All GV residents and businesses are required to remove snow from sidewalks within 24 hours after accumulation.

PG. 10

GV N E W S L E T T E R | O C T O B E R 2 0 1 2

When driving near a snowplow, slow down and use caution. Give plow drivers plenty of room so they can do their job efficiently and safely.


GOVERNMENT

CONCRETE/ASPHALT TRAILS, SIDEWALKS AND PARKING LOTS The Village plows snow from concrete and asphalt trails, and some sidewalks and parking lots. First priority trails are those leading to and from schools. The parking lot at Village Greens Park is the responsibility of the Village along with snow removal from sidewalks and parking lots at City Hall, Curtis Arts & Humanities Center and the Maintenance Facility. These facilities are also first priority for snow plowing and are cleared simultaneously with the first priority trails. The parking lots in other Village owned parks are then cleared. During the average snowstorm, it takes about eight hours to clear trails, sidewalks and parking lots. Crews often

start as early as 4 a.m. Trail crews periodically check trails for problem areas if the temperature remains below freezing for extended periods of time. Thaw/freeze conditions can cause new ice on trails, sidewalks and parking lots; always use caution when walking on these during periods of freezing weather.

QUESTIONS OR TO REPORT SNOW AND ICE ISSUES For more information regarding snow and ice control in the Village, please call Laird Thornton, Public Works Manager, at 303-708-6155 or after-hours, call 303-708-6100. GV

RESIDENTIAL SIDEWALKS AND DRIVEWAYS The law in Greenwood Village requires all residents and businesses to remove snow and ice from their sidewalks within 24-hours after accumulation. This requirement also includes removal of snow and ice from sidewalks in the front and side of a residence (corner

lots). This requirement does not extend to walkways leading from the sidewalk to the residence nor to sidewalks or trails abutting the rear property of a residence. Clearing snow around mailboxes is also the responsibility of the occupant.

POWER OUTAGES IN GREENWOOD VILLAGE HOW RESIDENTS AND BUSINESSES CAN PREPARE

As a homeowner, we all have experienced that moment when you wake up to find your electricity out, while waiting patiently as crews work to restore power. Or as a business owner, when your office goes dark in the middle of an important meeting, or during the lunch hour causing frustration with the threat of losing business, wages, and food. Power outages affect everyone and that is why the Greenwood Village City Council met with members of Xcel Energy in September to discuss power outages in the Village and learn the remedies Xcel Energy has in place to reduce power outages in the future.

SOURCE OF POWER Xcel Energy uses a variety of fuel sources to deliver electricity to homes and businesses. Some of the major fuel sources include coal, natural gas, hydro, wind power, and solar. Power is carried to your home or business through an electric distribution system. Electricity is generated at a power plant and distributed by highvoltage transmission lines through various distribution systems until it reaches your home or business.

CAUSES OF POWER OUTAGES There are many causes of interruptions to electrical power. Weather-related power outages like lightning strikes, extreme heat, ice, high winds and tornadoes can cause widespread outages. Non-weather related power

PG. 12

outages can be caused by humans, trees, equipment failure, damage by animals, and cable failures.

XCEL ENERGY OUTAGES REGULATED BY CPUC QUALITY OF SERVICE PLAN Xcel Energy is regulated by the Colorado Public Utilities Commission (CPUC). As part of a Quality of Service Plan (QSP) with Xcel to maintain a certain level of electric reliability, the QSP establishes performance measures called Reliability Warning Thresholds (RWT) for each of the company’s nine operating regions in Colorado. If Xcel Energy’s reliability performance does not meet the RWT in a region for two consecutive years, the company will be required to pay bill credits to customers in the affected region. Customers who experience outages that last more than 24 hours will receive a bill credit of $50. Those who experience more than six outages in a year that last more than five minutes each will receive the same bill credit amount. Outages caused by major events (e.g. snowstorm) do not apply to these credits.

GV N E W S L E T T E R | O C T O B E R 2 0 1 2

XCEL ENERGY INVESTMENT IN UPDATING FACILITIES IN GREENWOOD VILLAGE In 2012, Xcel Energy has replaced nearly 21,500 feet of cable in the commercial and residential areas of the Village. As required by the CPUC Quality of Service Plan, Xcel continues to identify segments of cable that need to be replaced. Since 2011, Xcel Energy has replaced more than four miles of feeder cable and eight miles of residential cable.

PREPARE YOUR HOME AND BUSINESS FOR AN OUTAGE Resident Checklist 3 Keep Xcel Energy phone number handy — 1-800-895-1999. 3 A phone that does not require electricity (cordless phones do not work without electricity). 3 Flashlights and batteries. 3 Battery-powered radio or television and non-electric alarm clock. 3 Bottled water and non-perishable food with manual can opener. 3 First aid kit.


GOVERNMENT

3 Car adapters/chargers for cell phones and laptop computers. Business Checklist 3 Keep Xcel Energy phone number handy — 1-800-895-1999. 3 Walk through a response plan with key employees to make sure you are ready if your business loses power. 3 Locate your electrical supply panels and know how to shut off power. 3 Identify equipment power switches. 3 Make sure you and your staff have an outage plan for all critical equipment. 3 Maintain emergency lighting. 3 Cash registers: Have a nonelectrical alternative as a backup. 3 Computers: Protect computers from power surges with good quality surge protectors. Prevent data loss with automatic backup programs and battery backup systems. 3 Electronic door locks: Ensure these can be bypassed manually. 3 Motorized equipment: Turn equipment off to reduce the electrical load when power is restored. 3 Refrigeration: Keep refrigerators and freezers closed to minimize food loss. Freezers, when full, can keep food frozen for about two days if unopened. 3 Ventilation: Do not attempt to operate machinery if ventilation, safety or fire suppression systems are not working. 3 If using a portable generator for backup power during an outage, follow generator safety rules to avoid deadly mistakes.

WHO SHOULD RESIDENTS AND BUSINESSES CALL TO REPORT AN OUTAGE To report an electric outage, citizens are asked to call 1-800895-1999. Please contact Xcel Energy as soon as you experience an outage, even if your neighbor has made contact so that Xcel can obtain a more accurate idea on the severity and extent of the outage. Xcel recommends before you call to check your breakers and fuses. Occasionally, a fuse in the home causes the outage. Once Xcel Energy is notified of the outage, a crew is dispatched to identify the exact outage location. Due to the complexity of electric systems and the variety of causes for an outage, this process can take several minutes, or in extreme cases, several hours. As soon as they determine the problem, their customer service center is updated with information regarding the outage and the expected time of restoration.

ALWAYS CALL BEFORE YOU DIG Always call for a “locate” to identify all underground utilities before you dig. Call 8-1-1 or the Utility Notification Center of Colorado: 1-800-922-1987. Don’t dig within 24 inches of these line locations once they are verified. Xcel Energy is committed to respond immediately to electric service interruptions. When power outages occur, Xcel Energy crews need to locate and access the equipment quickly. If equipment is hidden or the doors are blocked, the length of the outage may be extended plus your plantings could be damaged. GV

ORDINANCE UPDATE MODIFICATIONS TO PARK REGULATIONS ADDRESSING OPEN SPACES AND TRAILS The City Council amended Chapter 11, Article 5 of the Village Municipal Code regarding park regulations. The amendment included modifying the definition of parks, natural open space areas, and trails to address all parks, open spaces and trails owned, leased, or operated by the Village. The prior code omitted the Village’s open spaces and trails from the park regulations section of the code. The prior code stipulated the hours of operation of the Village’s parks and did not address its open space areas or trails. The new ordinance now regulates the hours of operation for all parks, open space areas and trails. Parks and open space areas shall be open from dawn until dusk. The High Line Canal Trail shall be open from dawn to dusk. All other trails are open for travel at all hours to accommodate people that use the trails for commuting purposes as well as for people that might use the trails for recreational purposes. In addition, the new ordinance amended the prohibition of motorized vehicles and firearms. The prior code stipulated that motorized vehicles are not allowed in any park, natural open area or trail except on roadways intended for vehicular traffic and open for public use. The modification to this section allows for the use of wheelchairs and other power-driven mobility devices (OPDMD) by individuals with mobility disabilities in park, open areas and on trails.

MAKING A

CAN WE FIND YOU? MAKE SURE YOUR ADDRESS IS VISIBLE FROM THE STREET If there is a police, fire, or medical emergency at your home, can first responders find you fast? Address markers that are hidden by shrubs or trees, or ones that are non-reflecting or unlighted are hard to spot, even by trained emergency personnel. Your house number painted on the curb may seem like a good idea, until that number is covered with snow or blocked by a car. Help us help you! Make sure your address is easily visible. If you have a long driveway, or a shared drive, make sure there are markers at the street, on the house, and at forks in the drive. Large numbers, 3-4 inches high that reflect light are best. It is also helpful if the numbers are visible from both directions on your street and visible at night as well as during the day. You may be wondering with today’s technology why computers can’t just direct responders right to the house? Technology is making the job easier but it’s neither foolproof nor perfect. A well-marked residence or business is the best way to ensure that when you call 9-1-1, we can find you! Provided by South Metro Fire Rescue Authority

ZOUP! THE FRESH SOUP COMPANY

9672 East Arapahoe Road 303-790-9900 • www.zoup.com Monday-Saturday 11 a.m.-8 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m.-4 p.m.

Do you enjoy soup? You are definitely not alone! The existence of soup can be traced as far back as about 6,000 BC. With the invention of waterproof clay vessels, soup became a common mainstay meal throughout the world. Hot rocks were used to boil the water — just think of it! At that time only a few varieties existed, but now soup making has fortunately evolved into a wide variety of soup types and flavors to please any craving. Soup has become a staple meal and is featured at Zoup! “In good times and bad,” soup carries powerful and intangible qualities that provide comfort and promote a genuine sense of well-being for many people,” said Eric Ersher, Founder and Managing Partner of Zoup! restaurants. By selling spices to restaurants for a number of years, he realized that he would use his own passion for spices to create and market soup himself. The 43 unit chain based in Detroit has exploded with their one-of-a-kind soup creations consumers love. It became clear to Eric that there’s something special about soup and the way it elicits thoughts of family and health for many people. Zoup! strives to offer authentic, soothing hand-crafted soups that are as good — and as “feelgood” — as the homemade soups our mothers and grandmothers used to cook up. The current Owner and Operator of the Village Zoup!, Wes Sagawa and his wife, Edie fell in love with the look, cleanliness, and feel of the restaurant. “We knew that our PG. 16

GV N E W S L E T T E R | O C T O B E R 2 0 1 2

own love of soup would definitely catch on in the community,” said Wes. He understood the active lifestyle of the Village community and the appreciation of residents and businesses for a quick and healthful meal. He likewise knew that the creative use of the spices, wide variety of recipes, and seasonality of the soups would appeal as well. Along with Kory, their son and General Manager of the restaurant and Mariko, their daughter and Assistant Manager of the restaurant, their family-run business welcomes all ages to the restaurant. Zoup!’s “Something for Everyone” nutritional offerings include low-fat soups such as Veggie Waves of Grain, Old Fashion Chicken Noodle and Frontier 7 Bean. Dairy-free soups like the Mulligatawny and Sesame Noodle Bowl, vegetarian soups, including Tomato Bisque and Rustic Vegetable Bean and Spicy Black Bean Chili and Wild Mushroom Barley are regularly featured. Customer favorites also include Chicken Pot Pie, Lobster Bisque and Vegetarian Split Pea. Of the several hundreds of award-winning soup recipes that Zoup! offers throughout the year, 12 are offered daily. There is at least one choice each day of a gluten free, low fat and vegetarian soup. E-mails are sent out to loyal customers noting the individual selections for each day. Customers can also order soups online through Facebook, Twitter, or fax. continued on page 17

AUTOMATED EXTERNAL DEFIBRILLATORS SAVE LIVES DO YOU KNOW HOW TO USE THEM?

Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) are user-friendly devices that untrained bystanders can use to save the life of someone experiencing cardiac arrest. AEDs are now located in many public buildings and venues and available to treat people who experience sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). SCA means the heart unexpectedly and abruptly quits beating. It is the number one killer of Americans.

HOW DOES AN AED WORK? When a person loses their pulse (resulting in rapid unconsciousness), the heart most often goes into uncoordinated electrical activity called ventricular fibrillation. The heart quivers uselessly and cannot pump blood. The AED delivers an electric current to the heart muscle, stopping the quivering motion and allowing the heart to resume effective beating. Defibrillation is an electrical current applied to the chest and should be administered within three to five minutes after collapse when possible. After 10 minutes without defibrillation, very few resuscitation attempts are successful.

USING AN AUTOMATED EXTERNAL DEFIBRILLATOR If you see a person suddenly collapse and pass out, or if you find a person already unconscious, confirm that the PG.18

* Not for infants

person can’t respond. Shout at and shake the person to make sure he or she isn’t sleeping. Call 9-1-1. Before using an AED, check for puddles of water near the person who is unconscious. Move him or her to a dry area. Turn on the AED’s power. The device will give you step-by-step instructions. Pay close attention to the directions and follow them exactly. You’ll hear voice prompts and/or see prompts on a screen. You would use an AED on someone who you would do CPR on (unresponsive, not breathing, and has no pulse). The machine decides whether or not to defibrillate. To use an AED, you have to expose the chest of the victim. If the person

GV N E W S L E T T E R | O C T O B E R 2 0 1 2

has a lot of chest hair, you may have to trim it. (AEDs usually come with a kit that includes scissors and/or a razor.) If the person is wearing a medication patch that’s in the way, remove it and clean the medicine from the skin before applying the sticky pads. Remove metal necklaces and underwire bras. The metal may conduct electricity and cause burns. You can cut the center of the bra and pull it away from the skin. Check the person for implanted medical devices, such as a pacemaker or implantable cardioverter defibrillator. (The outline of these devices is visible under the skin on the chest or abdomen, and the person may be wearing a medical alert bracelet.) Also check for body piercings. Move continued on page 19

HARVEST TIME AT THE SILO PARK DEMONSTRATION GARDEN The Village partnered with the CSU Extension — Arapahoe County Master GardenerSM program on this year’s Demonstration Garden at Silo Park. The Master Gardeners planted the garden in the spring and maintained it through the summer months. This year’s garden contains a wide variety of vegetables, herbs, flowers and pumpkins that would commonly be used in different salads and other common recipes, ranging from tomatoes to lettuce, peas to broccoli, and eggplants to basil. The CSU Extension – Arapahoe County Master GardnerSM have maintained the Silo Park Demonstration Gardens as an educational opportunity for Greenwood Village residents to learn all aspects of gardening, from planting through harvesting. As fall approaches, we are nearing the time of year that most vegetables are harvested. The Master Gardeners will be donating all vegetables harvested out of the garden to The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP).

If you haven’t had a chance this year to visit the Silo Park Demonstration Gardens, we encourage you to do so. Check out all the different vegetables that can be easily grown and make sure you see the giant pumpkin!

You can also get more information about the CSU Extension — Arapahoe County Master GardenerSM program from the following websites: www.ext.colostate.edu or www.arapahoeextension.org. GV

defibrillators continued from page 18 the defibrillator pads at least one inch away from implanted devices or piercings so the electric current can flow freely between the pads. Check that the wires from the electrodes are connected to the AED. Make sure no one is touching the person, and then press the AED’s “analyze” button. Stay clear while the machine checks the person’s heart rhythm. If a shock is needed, the AED will let you know when to deliver it. Stand clear of the person and make sure others are clear before you push the AED’s “shock” button. Start or resume CPR until emergency medical help arrives, until the AED tells you other directions, or until the person begins to move. Stay with the person until medical help arrives, and report all of the information about what has happened, including the time(s) the shocks were given. GV OCTOBER 2012 |

He presents a storyline about the process and calls them “pre-photoshop and “post-photoshop” While the pre-steps involve multiple steps from camera to developing, the post-steps are created on the computer. First place winner S. Brian Berkun shows the past and the present in his photograph “Kona Honu.” The show continues to October 19. Come in and accept the challenge as to what is pre and what is post.
