REUNITED By Tom Barry avannah Carlson, a senior at Arapahoe High, was in her Advanced Placement literature class when the shooting commenced, Dec. 13. “I heard three shots and it did not register,” said Savannah, who was trembling in the cold after reuniting with her mom. “I thought it was a locker or thought that something had fallen. “A security guard was banging on the [classroom door] window so we knew something was wrong. We turned off the light and got against the wall and huddled.” She felt she was in the classroom for a long time and realized that it was just over an hour. Savannah said she thought the guard banging on the classroom door window must’ve been the school resource officer, who is an Arapahoe County deputy sheriff working at the school full time. Savannah said she was aware who the shooter was and knew about Claire Davis being shot and that she was rushed to the hospital. “[The shooter] was very vocal about his opinions,” said Savannah, who had attended middle school with him.

Arapahoe High shooting victim struggles to survive Claire Davis was in ‘wrong place at wrong time’

By Tom Barry laire Esther Davis, the 17-yearold Arapahoe High School senior gunned down at point-blank range, remains in stable, but critical condition, according to her family. On Dec. 13, Davis was rushed to Littleton Adventist Hospital. She suffered major head injuries as a result of a bullet from a pump-action shotgun, said Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson. “Claire Davis is a young woman of principal. She is a young woman of purpose. She is an innocent young lady and she

was an innocent victim of an evil act of violence,” Robinson said at a press conference. The sheriff also read a statement from the Davis family. “Our beautiful daughter Claire Davis has severe head trauma as the result of a gunshot,” the statement read. “She needs your continued prayers. We would like to thank our family, friends, the community and the equestrian community for their outpouring of love and support, as well as the school for their continued support of the students and teachers. We would also like to express our gratitude to the first-responders and the trauma team at Littleton Adventist Hospital for saving our daughter’s life and quickly getting her into surgery. …Your prayers are appreciated.” The family gave an update in

a weekend Facebook post. “Claire remains in critical condition. She is stable, but is in a coma,” the post said. “The first-responders got Claire to the right place at the right time, and the doctors and hospital staff are doing a wonderful job taking care of her. We appreciate your continued good thoughts and prayers, and will provide updates as her condition improves.” AHS students have held a couple of candlelight vigils for Davis and there is a temporary living memorial at the school. Some students are attempting to have her favorite band, One Direction, visit her. As of press time, Dec. 17, Davis remained in critical condition. Will update at www.villagerpublishing.com.

Shooting wreaks havoc in community

Public rallies around Arapahoe High School By Tom Barry The last day of the school week started just like every other day on Friday, Dec. 13, at Arapahoe High School in Centennial. Then, the

lives of many students, staff and families changed forever at 12:33 p.m., as an innocent senior, Claire Esther Davis, 17, was shot in the head. She remains in a coma in critical condition at Littleton Adventist Hospital. Karl Pierson, 18, a fellow

student, had come into school one last time that early afternoon, brandishing a .12 gauge pump-action shotgun with at least 125 rounds of assorted types of ammunition. According to the Sheriff’s Office, the shooter carried numerous rounds of shotgun ammunition in two bandoliers that were worn across his chest and waist, while the remaining items were carried in a backpack, including a machete and three Molotov cocktails. Federal and local investigators have since determined that the shooter had entered the building on the north side of the school. He would soon take his own life. Although it currently appears that the shooter acted alone, the ongoing investigation will include consideration of any individual who may have provided any form of assistance. In 80 brief seconds, as documented on security monitors, the disgruntled senior entered the school looking for Tracey Murphy, the librarian and speech and debate coach at Arapahoe. The perpetrator was reportedly hell bent on seeking out Murphy,

whom the student had recently threatened. The coach had disciplined the shooter in September. Arapahoe County Deputy James Englert, the school-resource officer, and two administrators had learned from a school janitor that the shooter had entered the building. Englert and administrators went down the halls yelling out for the students and staff about the imminent danger and told them to remain in their classrooms. All Littleton Public Schools, along with other surrounding districts, imposed an immediate lockdown. After the Columbine High School tragedy a few miles away in the spring of 1999, law enforcement officials had developed a strategy called the Active Shooter/ Violent Intruder Protocol, a strategy designed to aggressively incapacitate suspects. Students and staff are trained how to react as a precaution. The school had initiated a full mock drill in October, said Scott Murphy, LPS superintendent, noting the students and staff were well prepared from such an event.

Natalie Pramenko, Arapahoe’s second-year principal, was out of town and not at school during the tragedy. She landed at Denver International Airport at 6 p.m. that night.

LPS websites suspended

On Dec. 14, just prior to noon, LPS suspended its normal website and posted, “ALERT - LPS Emergency Response Page,” which was updated at 5:15 p.m. that same day. “All LPS websites are being redirected to this webpage,” said the alert notification. “Due to overwhelming Internet traffic, we have shut down all LPS school websites and redirected them to this page until further notice. Please return to this webpage for official communications.”

Help from other districts and businesses

Littleton school officials contacted colleagues in other districts for assistance. Continued on page 3

Shooter planned to attack at least 5 areas of school Continued from Page 2 for assistance. Denver Public Schools dispatched numerous security officials to assist at one of the reunification centers. The adjacent King Soopers was initially utilized to reunite students and parents. Shepherd of the Hills Lutheran Church soon offered its gym and sanctuary. Many of the Arapahoe students had been escorted out of the school by SWAT members in full military regalia while carrying assault rifles. The young adults were evacuated from the school after law enforcement officials determined that the lone gunman had committed suicide and that there were not any additional incendiary devices or other threats or other accomplices involved, according to preliminary information. Cherry Creek School District provided busses to complement those from LPS to transfer Arapahoe students to the nearby Euclid Middle School. A second reunification center was set up and staffed with social workers and provided

other necessities for the students, parents and first-responders. Numerous gray-colored blankets were provided for the students. Students were unable to retrieve anything from their lockers, including coats, jackets or personal items. Many, if not most, students had cell phones and had been in brief contact with their parents and friends during the ordeal. Albertson’s Kyla C., manager of the store located across the street from the church, brought over three grocery buggies filled with food and drinks for the students, parents and staff. Starbucks supplied coffee and hot chocolate and the adjacent King Soopers provided an array of items. Other nearby retailers also delivered goods, food and refreshments.

Ongoing investigation

The Sheriff’s Office issued an update at 1:15 p.m., Dec. 17: While examining the shooter’s body, with the assistance of the Arapahoe County Coroner’s Office, investigators determined that the shooter had used an indelible marker to write a phrase in Latin on the inside of his forearm. The

Latin phrase is “Alea iacta est,” which translates to English as “The Die Has Been Cast.” In addition to the Latin phrase, the shooter had also written five separate letters/numbers on his arm, numbers which correlate directly with the identification of the Library and specific classrooms located in the immediate area of Library/ Media Center of the Arapahoe High School. The letters/numbers written on the shooters arm is an indicator to investigators of the shooter’s plan. Teams of Sheriff’s Office Investigators will attempt to determine the relevance of the list of numbers written on the shooter’s arm to specific classrooms, while closely evaluating if

the occupants of those classrooms may have also been targeted for harm by the shooter. The investigation into the Dec. 13 shooting at Arapahoe High School continues. The robust and ongoing investigation into the Arapahoe High School shooting is being conducted in a deliberate and methodical manner. Additional investigative resources from the Colorado Bureau of Investigation and the Federal Bureau of Investigation are assisting with the vast responsibilities associated with the complex investigation. The Villager will continue updating the story on our website at www.villagerpublishing.com.

First responders rush to assist in Arapahoe High School shooting

By Tom Barry After the initial call went out about a shooting at Arapahoe High School in Centennial, members of law enforcement, firefighters and paramedics responded en masse from throughout the metro area and converged quickly at the scene of the crime. The Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office initiated the response, as they are the law enforcement entity that provides services to the city of Centennial. Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson was on scene just prior to 1 p.m. Robinson and Undersheriff David Walcher and their leadership team coordinated the extensive response and were assisted by other agencies. There were more than 300 police cars, armored units, mobile command centers, SWAT vehicles, hazardous material units, unmarked police cars and trucks, fire trucks, mobile crime labs, a utility truck loaded with extra

guns and ammunition, along with a multitude of ambulances and other emergency vehicles that responded. The first responders included local, county, state and federal agencies, which consisted of Littleton Police and Fire, South Metro Fire Rescue, Englewood Police, Douglas County Sheriff’s and Bomb Squad, Greenwood Village Police, Colorado State Patrol, Colorado Bureau of Investigation, Homeland Security, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, Lone Tree Police, Parker Police, Denver Police, Cherry Hills Village and other law enforcement agencies and medical entities. The Colorado Parks and Wildlife Department also responded and provided assistance. A number of departments provided bomb-sniffing dogs and K-9 units to assist in the initial and methodical room-to-room security sweep of the school. First responders came from near and far as quickly as they could be deployed to the scene. Emergency vehicles’ sirens could be heard advancing to Arapahoe High from all directions as their

vehicles sped to the scene to render assistance. The flashing emergency lights could be seen from a mile away.

‘Everybody responds to these calls…’

“Originally, the call came in as a structure fire,” said Trent Cooper, a commander and public information officer with the City of Littleton Police Department. First-responders at the nearby fire department station responded immediately to the scene. “Everybody responds to these calls because initially based on previous experience, we don’t know what kind of resources will be needed on a scene like this,” said Cooper, a department veteran. Littleton Police provided SWAT members and detectives to the scene, which totaled about 25 to 30 first responders. The business card of Littleton Police at the bottom is inscribed – Heroes Every Day. In one instance, a county sheriff was on a field trip with his child and upon hearing the news, went home and changed clothes and showed up at the scene.

Taking care of each other during times of tragedy Arapahoe/Douglas Mental Health Network offers tips

An event like the Arapahoe High School shooting can have a strong emotional impact on those directly, and indirectly, involved. This tragedy, as well as others featured in the media, will trigger many of us due to a connection to recent tragedy in our own community. Tragic situations often shake our sense of safety, and so, it is important to take care of ourselves and others during these stressful times.  Laurie Elliott, clinical director of Arapahoe/Douglas Mental Health Network, emphasizes the importance of self-care, and its direct effect on others. “During times of tragedy, our children will look to us as their parents and caregivers to determine how they should be responding. Therefore, it is critical that we take care of ourselves

so that we may remain calm and regulated in order to support our children, our community,” she said. As the local community mental health center, Arapahoe/Douglas Mental Health Network offers the following tips on how best to address tragedy with children, and how to care for one another.  

Talking with children and teens

• Spend time talking with your children. • Listen to them. Listen twice as much as you talk. Be aware of what their concerns might be. Give clear, simple answers. If you don’t know the answer to a question, it’s ok to say that. • Ask them what they already know. • Encourage children to talk about their feelings, worries, daydreams, and distractions. Accept the feelings they share, listen carefully, and remind them that

these are normal reactions following a very scary event. • Provide information in a simple, clear and age-appropriate manner. Answer questions without giving more information than is necessary. • Help your children feel safe. Talk with them about their concerns over safety. Remind them of ways you keep them safe. Go over your family’s communication plan and practice phone numbers. Encourage them to share their concerns with you. • Limit media exposure. Protect them from too much media coverage. Explain that TV, radio, the Internet and social media can spread rumors and trigger fears. • Maintain expectations or “rules.” Stick with family rules, such as bedtimes, curfews, checking in with you while with friends, and keeping up with homework and chores. Staying in familiar routines will be reassuring. Continued on page 6

Iran can trade gold for bombs KINDLING

By Robert Sweeney

Mort, Mort, Mort, you cite some very important historical events that had bad endings. That doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t attempt to deal in a peaceful diplomatic effort to halt Iran’s nucle-

ar intent without another armed conflict. It is quite possible that Iran already has enriched uranium and maybe even some nuclear bombs. China, Russia and North Korea would be more than happy to supply these materials to Iran for gold from Iran’s deep pocket oil wealth. The Iranians are some of the largest gold traders in the world. We have a 10-year record of failure with the Middle East in attempting to bring peace and harmony to societies that are split over religious differences that go back to Mohammed and his heirs. It is easier to see in hindsight today why Sadam Hussein was so cruel to his people; he had to

be ruthless to prevent a civilian religious war from breaking out across Iraq. Remember that Saddam was waging war against Iran before we ever arrived on the scene. If we fail to reach some diplomatic solutions and the Iranians proceed to build or buy a nuclear device, the Israelis will no doubt attempt to destroy any nuclear facilities on their own. As their closest ally, we will be drawn into another Middle Eastern conflict. Do we really want to invade Iran and be forced to fight another war against a much larger, stronger foe than either Iraq or Afghanistan? We need to cut off the supply lines to the Taliban, but that ap-

parently is impossible and their weapons, food and bombs must be coming from Pakistan and Iranian sources. I know that at this time of year your thoughts return to a frigid foxhole in the forest during the Battle of the Bulge and your adrenalin starts to flow for another sweeping American victory of guts and fortitude in defeating the Nazi army. The Iranians probably have what they want now, but they must know that America will defend Israel and that all of this nuclear enrichment will only spell disaster for Iran, Israel and the United States. The sooner we exit the Middle East, the better.

Christmas 1944 and 2013 REMARKS

By Mort Marks

Christmas 1944 – Americans in the “Battle of the Bulge” were fighting to destroy the “evil” that Hitler had brought to the world. Their mission – “Peace.” Christmas 2013 – Americans in Afghanistan have been and still are fighting there for “Peace.” My Christmas prayer for 2013 is “two-fold.” My first is for today’s fighting men who will attempt to “keep the peace” – peacefully. My second is for those of my generation who fought and died in 1944’s “Battle of the Bulge” – a battle that brought freedom and peace one step closer to reality. ByThe Shirley Bulge isSmith a war story that will soon fade away and become a footnote in dusty history books, but as long as I and others, who were there, are still here – its story will be told. I especially remember Dec. 16, 1944, when the Battle of the Bulge, which was a war within a war, began. Two weeks of such fierce fighting took place that those of us present will never

LPS ranked high for Arapahoe High student communicates scary situation via text messages school security As Littleton Public Schools rattles from last week’s shooting at Arapahoe High School, Security magazine, the national security-industry trade publication, has ranked Littleton Public Schools as the seventh best in the nation for security protocols. LPS’s high ranking was based on its national reputation and recommendations from peers across the country in all industries. Security has also named LPS as one of the top 500 security operations for the entire security industry. The school district has joined some of the nation’s Fortune

500 companies, banks, government entities, entertainment stadiums and energy companies as having the best security protocols. The rankings were published in the November issue. According to Guy Grace, LPS’s director of security and emergency planning, the district’s rankings are due in part to buzz-in systems implemented in all elementary and middle schools, the district’s participation in ongoing training opportunities, the district’s security protocols, and its close partnership with local law enforcement agencies

Camden Castellano, 15, a student at Arapahoe High and his dad Johnny are reunited after the shooting at Arapahoe High School, Dec. 13. Camden was in the pool in a swimming class when the shooting began and the school went into a lockdown. He and his classmates hid in a locker room until police said they could evacuate the school. Camden and others in the class left wearing their swim trunks and towels.

• Address “acting out” behaviors. Help them understand that acting out behaviors are a dangerous way to express strong feelings like anger and grief. Talk about other ways of coping with these feelings such as fun activities, exercise, writing in a journal, spending time with family and friends. • Be patient. It is normal for everyone to have a stress response to any potential threat in the environment.

Suggestions for adults

• Take care of yourself. Drink plenty of water, eat regularly, and get enough sleep and exercise.

Make time for relaxation and activities that you enjoy. • Avoid excessive use of alcohol and caffeine. Remember that alcohol can increase anxiety and depression. Caffeine can also increase anxiety. Be aware of your body and how you are feeling. • Talk with others: adults, friends, or members of the community, and support each other. • Put off major decisions. Avoid making any unnecessary life-altering decisions during this time. • Give yourself a break. Take time to rest and do things that you like to do. • Focus on the positive. There are caring people and acts of kindness all around us. If you are feeling over-

whelmed, you may want to consider talking to a mental health professional who can help you develop an appropriate strategy for moving forward. It is important to get professional help if you feel like you are unable to function or perform basic activities of daily living. Arapahoe/Douglas Mental Health Network offers comprehensive mental health services for adults, seniors, families and children. For information and appointments, call 303-730-8858.

Firefighters play important role in aftermath of shooting

Paramedics from metro Denver area quickly respond to the Arapahoe High School shooting.

By Tom Barry Littleton firefighters and paramedics were among the first to respond to last week’s 911 call. The crew at Fire Station No. 15, located at 2702 E. Dry Creek Road, was just three blocks from the school. Initial accounts say those rescue workers performed emergency triage on the shooter’s victim Claire Davis, a 17-year-old senior. The young woman suffered massive head injuries and was rushed to Littleton Adventist Hospital, where she remains in a coma in critical condition.

Students and staff evacuated

Once the lockdown was lifted, people left the building, class by class, as law enforcement determined that their respective area was safe. The students, teachers and staff were led out of the school by law enforcement in full SWAT gear grasping automatic weapons. Evacuees were instructed to raise their arms over their heads as a safety measure to assure authorities that none of them had

any weapons. The first group was let out on the south side of the structure at 3:13 p.m. A fire truck and law enforcement vehicles were adjacent the area. A handful of students were in the pool for a swimming class when administrators implemented the lockdown. Once cleared, they left the building still in their swimming trunks.

Reunions with parents

Students crossed Dry Creek Road and headed south. Upon crossing the street, a Littleton Fire commander calmly told students they could put their arms down as they walked through the alley for their safety and to limit public exposure. Firefighters were given the task of hastily setting up a makeshift reunion center to bring the students together with their parents. King Soopers provided a secure and warm environment as temperatures were beginning to dip in the mid-afternoon. Armed police officers and sheriffs were at the entrance as the students filed through. Firefighters utilized red cau-

tion tape to split the interior of the store in half, allowing students to go to one side and parents to the other. Police reviewed and verified the IDs of each of the parents before they were able to connect with their children and leave. Emotion filled the store as students were reunited with their parents after being in lockdown mode for nearly three hours. There were lots of bear hugs, tears and joy as the students and parents expressed their relief at being reunited. Two King Soopers managers told the first-responders to pick up any food or other supplies that the students, staff or emergency personnel needed free of charge.

Church assisted

During the very fluid evacuation of the students from the school, the plan changed suddenly and the students and staff were redirected to the Sheperd of the Hills Church, just south of King Soopers. Firefighters assisted police in security measures, enforcing the restricted areas that had yellow tape strewn across wide swaths.

Arapahoe High students and faculty cross Dry Creek Avenue heading to King Soopers to reunite with family.

Sheriff to step down in January Robinson urges county board to appoint his undersheriff

By Peter Jones Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson has announced he will retire next month and allow his presumptive replacement to run as an incumbent in 2014. In a Dec. 12 letter to the county’s Board of Commissioners, the term-limited sheriff said he would leave office at the end of January and strongly encouraged the board to appoint Undersheriff David Walcher as his interim replacement. Robinson’s final term ends in January 2015. “Leaving elected office prior to the end of my third term has always been an important element of my very deliberate and well considered plan,� the sheriff wrote. “The extraordinary qualifications and commitment of the existing Sheriff’s Office Leadership Team, as well as the unwavering dedication of the women and men of the sheriff’s office, causes me to be extremely confident of the future success of the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office.� Walcher, a 32-year law enforcement veteran who has served as Robinson’s undersheriff since 2011, is to date the only candidate seeking the Republican nomination for sheriff in 2014. No Democrats have announced. Robinson, a Republican who has often crossed party lines in his endorsements, says his decision to retire early went beyond the politics of assisting

Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson an heir apparent. “It’s designed to benefit the sheriff’s office, and more importantly, the community,� the sheriff told The Villager. “[Walcher] will hit the ground running on Feb. 1. He is a very well qualified, experienced and committed man. He has already earned the respect of our organization and the community.� Although Robinson, 64, has called his planned departure a retirement, the outgoing sheriff says he plans to remain active in the community. Although his long-term goals remain unclear, the sheriff says his next chapter will most certainly not include another campaign for political office. “The truth of the matter is I believe I have held the one elected office that is closest to the people and makes the biggest difference,� he said. “I have no inclination to run for any other political office. I’m

a little stale and frustrated on politics and the partisanship. It doesn’t serve the people.� Robinson, a 42-year law enforcement veteran, says he will continue to lobby the state legislature on public-safety issues and will remain in his volunteer position as chairman of the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies. After serving two years in the Army, Robinson rose through the ranks of the Littleton Police Department for 20 years. In 1992, he joined the sheriff’s office and four years later was named undersheriff. After being appointed as a mid-term replacement for the top job, he ran for his first of three terms in 2002. The sheriff, who was formerly a Centennial resident, was actively involved in the city’s 2001 incorporation and for 12 years has provided contracted law enforcement to the city. “It has been a privilege working with Sheriff Robinson,� Mayor Cathy Noon said. “Centennial has been fortunate to experience the benefits of high-quality law enforcement services. The sheriff and his team have always demonstrated an unwavering commitment and dedication to the city. While we will greatly miss Sheriff Robinson, the city looks forward to continuing our successful partnership with the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office. We wish Sheriff Robinson an enjoyable, well-deserved retirement.� Robinson, now an Aurora resident, wrote in his retirement announcement, “It has been my great honor and distinct privilege to serve our community as their sheriff.�

Cherry Creek Schools reduces mill levy District still expects increased revenues due to property values

By Peter Jones The Cherry Creek Schools Board of Education has approved a new – and lower – mill levy rate in the face of changing assessed property valuations in the school district. The newly approved levy for the 2013-14 fiscal year will be 57.492 mills. That means property taxes are expected to raise about $254 million for the school district during the 12-month period. That is compared to the previous mill levy of 58.037 and a total tax collected of $248 million during the 2012-13 fiscal year. Although the mill levy is declining, the collected taxes will increase due to bumps in property values, Cherry Creek’s Chief Financial Officer Guy Bellville told the board. The mill levy was approved on Dec. 9 after a presentation by Bellville.

According to district data, the total taxable assessed valuation in the district increased from about $4.288 to $4.422 billion in the 2011-2012 period. The mill levy rate change has come as the district has taken other moves toward financial efficiency. Earlier this month, Cherry Creek Schools sold $31.2 million in generalobligation debt to J.P. Morgan Securities. According to district officials, the sale is expected to result in about $4.2 million in reduced taxes during the next decade.

No students hurt in school bus crash None of 60 Grandview High School students were reported injured when a Cherry Creek school bus crashed into a car in the 19500 block of East Arapahoe Road in Centennial on the afternoon of Dec. 11. Drivers of both vehicles were taken to hospitals. The driver of the car was trapped

in his vehicle for a time and had to be removed. Students were taken back to Grandview for pickup. Arapahoe Road was closed between South Waco Street and South Himalaya Way while the accident was investigated by the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office.

Greater Littleton Youth Initiative continues seeking solutions for youth

www.bestchamber.com • 303-795-0142

Stories and photos submitted by Terry McElhaney

More than 750 business leaders listened to the economic experts on what to expect in the coming year at the 27th Annual Economic Forecast Breakfast.

Economic Forecast Breakfast sees light at the end of a long tunnel

With 2013 coming to an end and 2014 on the horizon, the economy is steadily improving at a slow pace with the amount and pace of that improvement varying widely determined by where you live and how you make a living. This was one take-away listening to economic experts at last week’s 27th Annual Economic Forecast Breakfast held at the Hyatt Regency Denver Tech Center. More than 750 South Metro Denver business leaders gathered to build on existing or create new business relationships, share their visions of the future and hear the latest on our local, regional and national economy. Presenters included Dr. Rich Wobbekind, executive director of the Business Research Division and senior associate dean for Academic Programs at the University of Colorado - Boulder; Dr. Martin Shields, professor of Economics and director of the Regional Economics Institute at Colorado State University; and Michael Wolf, economist for Wells Fargo Securities. Ken Lund, executive director for the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade, was also on hand to report on the state’s efforts on growing the current economy. Lund highlighted Gov. John Hickenlooper’s Colorado Innovation Network – the governor’s vision of branding Colorado for innovation and entrepreneurship. A video from the COIN Summit held last August included excerpts from presentations by Salman Khan, dounder of Khan Academy; Mary Grove, director of Google Global Entrepreneurship Outreach; Hikmet Ersek, president and CEO of Western Union; and Denver Mayor Michael Hancock on the importance of innovation and creativity in building an economy. Colorado’s envious business climate and talent pool was also noted. Colorado was hailed as the second best state to start a business by CNBC, second best state for entrepreneurship and innovation by Inc. Magazine, and the second best state for high tech business according to TechAmerica. Forbes named Colorado the best state for labor supply last year, has the second highest population with bachelors degree or higher, and is third in high-tech

employment by TechAmerica. This all boils down to Colorado being a great place to build a career, and the way that is done is through growing business, according to Lund. “We have 2.4 million employees in the state of Colorado. If we can get that grown by 10 percent that’s 240,000 - it will blow Rich’s [Wobbekind] numbers out of the water for 2014. So let’s go get it done,” Lund said. Wobbekind presented the state’s economic outlook for 2014 with an optimistic flair. Starting with an image of a beautiful Colorado scene and the title “Looking good...” the economist shared the facts that Colorado is among the top states for population growth and continues to bring in an impressive talent pool. Job growth continues to be broadbased with technical, construction and retail/wholesale trade showing the biggest gains. He noted that we have passed the pre-recession employment peak, and the wage peak is at an all-time high. Wobbekind stated that Colorado has consistently been above the national average economically and will continue to be a role model for much of the country looking into the future. He saw no reason that the upward trend shouldn’t continue at a slow rate up until late in the decade when changing demographics will create a shortage in the workforce. Shields agreed we have recovered from the economic downturn, but rejected continuing to use the term “recovery.” “Recovery is an interesting word. The recession ended in 2009 and we are still talking recovery four and a half years later... the use of ‘recovery’ suggests that this is going to be some kind of a rapid growth and we are not at that phase... this is as good as it’s going to get for a while. This is what it is,” Shields said. His regional report echoed much of Wobbekind’s analysis, but emphasized that unemployment is still relatively high at 6.4 percent and real household income is at its lowest level in 17 years despite a growth in overall wages. Shields went on to explain that the leading employment sectors along the Front Range include administration and support services

and food and beverage workers, which are on the low end of the wage scale. Temporary employment agencies are at a high in placement as companies are still not ready to put full-time workers in place. He believes this disconnect between economic growth and individual prosperity is creating a negative effect which will continue to be a drag on the regional economy. The economist did predict that another 26,000 to 30,000 jobs will be created in 2014 and the unemployment rate will drop to 5.9 percent - still well above the pre-recession rate. The macroeconomic view was presented by Michael Wolf showing that the nation’s GDP continues to grow modestly and consumers are slowly gaining more confidence. And while Colorado’s housing market is fairly stable at 9 percent negative equity, the national average is still at 14 percent with some states like Florida and Nevada still above 30 percent. Household debt is beginning to decline, but much too slow to help those in the bottom of the economic scale and income is increasing, but again very slowly. Wolf also sees the government’s debt and spending continuing to slow economic growth with the deficit shrinking too slowly to offset interest rates and international economic concerns. Director of the South Metro Denver Economic Development Group Jeff Holwell saw optimism through the slow growth. “We are enthusiastic about the year ahead. While we would love to see huge gains in job creation and growth, we will take slow and turn it to our advantage. We will work toward building our local and state economies through a conscious and deliberate effort which will keep us at the forefront of the country’s continuing growth,” Howell said. The event was sponsored by Wells Fargo and WhippleWood CPAs, both leaders in our community and representative of the exceptional businesses the South Metro Chamber is proud to call partners. More information on the South Metro Denver Economic Development Group can be found at www.bestchamber.com or 303795-0142.

With the recent heartbreaking event at Arapahoe High School, the Greater Littleton Youth Initiative continues working with local government, business, law enforcement, and health and community leaders to support youth of the Littleton/Centennial area. They listen, they exchange, and they attempt to unravel the mystery of growing up in today’s world. Born out of another senseless tragedy – the Columbine High School shootings, this community-based effort was formed to understand the root causes of teenage violence and do something about it. With the support of many community leaders, the GLYI was formed. The group began researching programs and evaluating proposals, but had no hard data as to what actually worked and what didn’t. Chris Gibbons, former manager of the City of Littleton’s Business and Industry Affairs department, eventually talked to Dr. Delbert Elliott, director for the Study and Prevention of Violence at CU who had developed scientific criteria proving that some programs really did work. These “Blueprint Programs” showed quantitative correlation in reducing violence-related behaviors in school-aged children. The GLYI, with support from the City of Littleton and other sources, has directed funds and grown three Blueprint programs over the past decade. These include Functional Family Therapy, The Incredible Years and Nurse-Family Partnership. Each program focuses on supporting children and their families through prevention, building skills within the child and family, and developing greater resiliency. The organization is currently in the process of refocusing their efforts to broaden its scope and effectiveness. Former Littleton Public School

Board member Sue Chandler; Sean O’Shea, executive director of the Binning Family Foundation; Shannon Bertram, executive director of the Littleton Family YMCA; Rick Derbyshire, Mission Hills Church pastor; and Laurie Elliott, director of Clinical Services Clinical Director of Arapahoe Douglas Mental Health Network form the group’s executive committee with a supporting advisory group of current and former local government officials, business leaders, law enforcement, mental health, health care, faith-based and community leaders. The GLYI intends to support additional Blueprint Programs, as well as other evidence-based programs that work to make life healthier and happier for our community’s youth and their families. “The GLYI has been and will continue to be an important community collaboration. We will continue to work to find and implement programs that meet the needs of youth in our community,” said Sue Chandler. The Greater Littleton Youth Initiative executive committee meets on the second Friday of every other month with the open advisory meetings on alternate months (except November, December, May, June, July and August) at the South Metro Chamber of Commerce Center, 2154 E. Commons Ave., Suite 342 in The Streets at SouthGlenn in Centennial. Interested community members are encouraged to join the group and become active advocates for our youth and help in the prevention of violent acts such as those that have affected our community in recent days. For more information on the group, visit www.meetup.com/ GLYI or call 303-795-0142.

2013 Holiday Gift Guide “Yappy Holidays” from Cameron Taylor MacIverson and Miss Elle Reed MacIverson

By Scottie Taylor Iverson

Girls’ 21 entertains Cherry Creek Republican Women Angelic voices belonging to the members of Cherry Creek High School’s Girls’ 21 choir were delivered by chartered coach to Glenmoor Country Club for its traditional Cherry Creek Republican Women holiday serenade. Members and guests were treated to American favorites as well as German, Latin and African renditions. The audition choir that devotes dozens of hours of rehearsal each week has established itself as one of the top high school choirs in the country. Under the banner of Creek’s distinguished fine arts department, the choir now numbers 45 girls and has performed at American Choral Director’s Association conferences numerous times. The high school’s entire music department was selected as a semifinalist for the GRAMMY Foundation GRAMMY Signature Schools Community Award. Director of Girls’ 21 Adam Cave said, “Our relationship with Cherry Creek Republican Women means a lot and one of the highlights of the choir’s spring performance schedule is a tour in March to San Francisco.”

ABOVE: In addition to serenading as a group, members of Girls’ 21 from Cherry Creek High School closed the performance by surrounding the luncheon tables holding hands with attendees. At this table are CCRW members Virginia Grimsley and Natli VanDerWerken.

Tunes and inspiration brought toys for Kempe Foundation and Children’s Hospital Colorado In the heart of downtown Golden, Colorado media personality/author/motivational speaker Mark McIntosh and Colorado native/country music artist Brad Lee Schroeder staged a “Tunes for Toys” inspirational concert at Buffalo Rose Bar & Grill. Schroeder’s tour bus was parked right outside on Washington Avenue making donations and new toys easy to deposit for Kempe Foundation and Children’s Hospital Colorado. After he and his band led Christmas carols with the children in attendance, the rising star in the national country music industry gave a live concert for the

fans. Schroeder also gave away T-shirts and CDs including an advance preview of “The Nashville Session.” McIntosh gave an animated presentation (and of course, related stories) of “How to Soar in One Four (2014)” by sticking your neck out, keeping the faith and fighting to the finish. He believes a sweat a day keeps the doctor away and that there is a potential jock in all of us. J –joyful, O-optimistic, C-courageous, K-put it all together and kick ass.

COLORADO SYMPHONY PRESENTS

McNicholas host Denver Zoo Foundation reception amid a winter wonderland By Glory Weisberg winkling LED lights light up the nearly fiveacre estate of Kevin and Mary McNicholas each Christmas and the house itself swarmed with Denver Zoo supporters last week for a reception. Annually, the McNicholas family blankets their acreage with countless holiday lights, with one green-lit section titled Emerald Isle and it was magical to behold as invited guests wound their way from the street to the main house in Cherry Hills Village. The Denver Zoo has grown dramatically since Greenwood Villager Susie Robinson first led the charge for the annual Do at the Zoo. Northern Shores, the Toyota Elephant Passage and other areas were developed with the help of that popular party. It draws about 3,000 adults who come to sip and sup from food and drink booths filled with samples from area caterers and restaurants. The Do is the Zoo’s main fundraiser. Cherry Hills Village Mayor Doug Tisdale is the consummate emcee wherever he alights. The booming voice and ear-toear grin are his trademark. At the McNicholas reception, he proclaimed Dec. 11 Denver Zoo Day, the proclamation handed to Zoo Foundation Executive Vice Chairman Dennis O’Malley as many foundation supporters looked on, having a great time enjoying wall to wall hors d’oeuvres. Katie Philpott Schoelzel is Zoo Foundation chairman and she was mixing it up, so to speak, with trustees and other guests. Among supporters: Meyer and Geri Bader Saltzman, Janie North and Sean McNicholas, the latter showing off smartphone pix of his daughter as wife and mom,

According to the zoo, if Denver Zoo visitors need to warm up a bit during Zoo Lights they can visit one its newest arrivals, a Fiji banded iguana. The very colorful, 12-year-old male arrived recently from the San Diego Zoo and is the first of his species to live at the Denver Zoo in eight years. Since 1996, the zoo has participated in 594 conservation projects in 62 countries on all seven continents. In 2012 alone it participated in 98 projects in 18 countries and more than $1 million in funds was spent by the zoo in support of animal conservation in the field.

The annual Cancer League of Colorado Holiday Luncheon Meeting is always a festive delight and last week it was at the home of Brent and Chiara Kline of Cherry Hills Village. Thanks to Martha Jentz, past League president, no one had to schlepp in the snow as Jentz underwrote the cost of valet parking. What awaited guests and members was a plethora of vendors with items for presents, most fitting under the Christmas tree, but some were worn out of the luncheon as fancy clothing was the rage. Among vendors were The Crazy Merchant, Aston Royal Jewelers, Lagrano Granola, Little Me’s, Perch Vail, Two Chic Boulevard, Lone Tree Sweets, Apera Bags, Bella Bling, Donni Charm, artist Dave Kammerzel, Headbands by Alice Bowman and R&P Creative Ideas and Solutions. A humongous array of food was donated by 16 restaurants and caterers, enough to sustain the more than 100 men and women who attended the luncheon. Live Basil Pizza, Paxti’s Pizza, Garlic Knot, Gigi’s Cupcakes, Footers Catering, Brio, Panera, The Pines at Genesee, Lifestyles Catering, Andres and others provided the massive food layout. Lori Marks Connors and Lindsay Morgan chaired the festive gathering. Dates to record: Feb. 8, 2014, the Young Professionals Dodge Ball Tournament at the Wash Park Recreation Center; the May 10 Hope Ball at the DTC Hyatt Regency; the July 11 Over the Edge rappelling benefit; and the Aug. 17 Race for Research at Wash Park.

Sue got out of surgery sooner than expected and the repair is working very well. Upon awaking from surgery Sue’s first words were, “I did it!” How true a statement for so many of the obstacles that she has overcome in her 79 years of life. Sue will be in rehab several weeks and anyone wishing to reach her can email me when we get that contact information. The Day of Caring Conference is April 26 and volunteers are doing a great job already. The Day is partnering with Colorado Ballet and the Colorado Ballet Academy for their gala, March 6, and their dancers and academy students are involved.

We’re getting a bit bugged after giving a donation to a charity and they seem to say thanks by bugging us for more donations. Some are doing so on a more than weekly basis, year round through constant emails, phone calls and bulk mail. The best way to stop it is to just respond to solicitors is by writing or saying that we wish to be contacted only periodically as we already show our interest in them by making that one donation. Nagging is bad manners regardless how it’s expressed.

Greenwood Village becomes a holiday ‘Emerald City’

By Jan Wondra Arctic cold could not stop the fun on Dec. 6 when Greenwood Village City Hall assumed the emerald green tones of a land far away from both Kansas and metro Denver. On the stroke of 6:15 p.m., Mayor Ron Rakowsky led city staff and members of the Greenwood City Council in turning the space around and within City Hall into the magical Land of Oz. “Thank you to all who came out to the Land of Oz and enjoyed some community spirit in the Emerald Village” said Rakowsky. “Our holiday lighting event has been one of our most creative city efforts.” With temperatures below zero, much of the planned activities were moved indoors, with the exception of the snow hill, created by Public Works in the back of city hall. After a few rides downhill, most “kids” from ages 8 to 80, were ready for warm cocoa and hot soup indoors. The crowd of more than 500 spread out around City Hall, where indoor activities included the flying monkey sand art, “Toto tag,” scarecrow ornaments and witches brew. Council Chambers were turned into Munchkinland, where families enjoyed a production from Oz put on by the cast of Talent West-Princess, which included the unforgettable songs, Over the Rainbow and Ease on Down the Road. Evening entertainment also included musical performances by the Greenwood Elementary singers, the Campus Middle School Orchestra, the West Middle School singers, and the Cherry Creek High School jazz band. The high turnout was rewarding

Members of City Council, city staff and the mayor, braved the belowzero temperatures to officially turn Greenwood Village into the Emerald Village on Dec. 6. Some members include Recreation Manager Cathy Pate and City Council members Denise Rose, Tom Bishop, Bette Todd and TJ Gordon. “Dorothy” is leaning to talk with Mayor Ron Rakowsky (aka The Wizard of Oz), as City Manager Jim Sanderson and Councilwoman Leslie Schulter look on.

to the staff and volunteers who planned the event. “Although the temperature was frigid, an enthusiastic crowd watched the lighting and then proceeded inside to participate in various festivities,” said Rakowsky. Even Oz is not outside the realm of Santa Claus, who followed the arctic cold down from the North Pole for a visit. Not to be outdone by Santa, Glinda the Good Witch made balloon sculptures, the Lollipop Guild painted faces and the man behind the green curtain provided photo booth fun.

2013 Holiday Gift Guide

2014 Lexus IS 350 F-Sport takes premium sports sedans below $50K By Don Bain

T

he first thing we noticed is the sleek, stunning appearance – a standout among the sedans of today. Lines running from the front wheel to the rear window and from behind the front wheel to the rear lighting array convey a sweeping fluid essence – one the F-Sport package makes a reality in the 2014 Lexus IS 350. Add to that a front countenance that will make drivers in front want to get out of the way, just to watch the IS 350 go by. There are a lot of sports sedans on the market, but chances are slim a betterlooking car can be found for less than $50K. When it comes to performance statistics, it is possible to find one that will outperform the 2014 Lexus IS 350 F-Sport, but again it will probably cost a lot more. This is what Lexus has achieved with this vehicle – a well-balanced blend of exquisite design, premium appointments, cutting edge technology and gratifying performance at an attractive price point. Simultaneously, they have thrown in an eminently hospitable interior, advanced safety features plus the ability to tame the horsepower with an eco setting, wintery streets with a snow selection and the savage breast with a sport mode. Though it is possible to drive the sedan sedately, it was clearly born to run and does so with great relish. We found its acceleration quite adequate for urban driving, even though selecting the sport mode made smoothly weaving through Interstate traffic a sheer delight. Ready acceleration, crisp handling and sure-footed braking in a car of this comfort level makes it easy to form an attach-

The Lexus IS 350 AWD has a base price of $41,700 and the F-Sport package adds another $3,180. Navigation and the Levinson audio upgrade tack on another $3,225. With blind spot alert and destination charges, the final price of the model driven came to $49,600. ment between man or woman and machine, largely a result of the increased rigidity and improved inertial dynamics of the third generation IS. This performance is further enhanced in the IS 350 F-Sport by what Lexus refers to as Adaptive Variable Suspension. In simple terms, when driving is taken to a more aggressive level, it tightens the suspension to increase its responsiveness to driver input. The 2014 Lexus IS 350 also assures the owner remains connected to the modern world easily via a new and greatly enhanced voice recognition system – allowing requests for route guidance while driving or tweaking other aspects within the vehicle interior with no distraction at all. Of course the familiar Lexus

controller, with its computer mouse style operation, is there for use by passengers or the driver when idling, to reset numerous aspects of the internal ambience, including the modification of info, setup, display, radio, media, climate and phone functions. This also allows access to all the phone-based apps in Lexus Enform. The front seats are heated and 10-way power adjustable, including two lumbar adjustments, and even the headrests can be modified in both vertical tilt, as well as height. On the F-Sport the seats proudly display the F-Sport logo on the seatbacks. The digitally displayed gauges can shift to a double function at the touch of a button displaying a wide array of performance, trip data and

other information – something that helps the driver keep all the ducks in line while greatly impressing younger passengers. When activated the speedometer moves to the right to provide room for another display at left, a feature borrowed from the Lexus LFA supercar. The various models of the IS 350 line have a 3.5-liter V6 engine with direct and port fuel injection developing 306 horsepower channeled through a phenomenal eightspeed transmission with Sport and Sport Plus modes. The F-Sport trim package also sports exclusive 18-inch split 5-spoke wheels, adding to the sedan’s sharp looks. For the inclement weather Colorado sometimes finds during winter, the 2014 Lexus IS 350 F-Sport comes in a full time all-wheeldrive model with all season tires. Any true audiophile will love the Mark Levinson audio, with its 5.1 series Surround sound system, 15 speakers and 835 watts of symphonic sound. Depending on your taste angels, cultists, headbangers, bubble blowers, talking heads, Gregorian monks or string quartets will be right there with

you on Pandora, your iPod or satellite HD radio. When it comes to the vital statistics, the 2014 Lexus IS 350 FSport boasts 19-mpg in town and 26-mpg on the open highway despite the 306 horses beneath the hood. It splits the goalposts on emissions scoring 5 out of 10 on both EPA scales. The Lexus IS 350 AWD has a base price of $41,700 and the F-Sport package adds another $3,180. Navigation and the Levinson audio upgrade tack on another $3,225. With blind-spot alert and destination charges, the final price of the model driven came to $49,600. For the money, it is a drop dead gorgeous, spirited and luxurious sports sedan and well worth comparing to the pricier sedans on the market. Consider whether you get any real value for the extra money and the Lexus may begin to look like a bargain. That goes double during the automakers December to Remember promotion and, after all, who wouldn’t like to be greeted by a red Lexus with a white bow on Christmas morning?

The annual LPS District Chess Tournament was held at Newton Middle School on Dec. 7. About 200 students accompanied by their coaches and/or parents participated in the five-round event. The grade level winners were: • Kindergarten and First grade: Gabe Brock, Lenski Elementary School • Second grade: Brett Sweeney, Lenski

Elementary School

• Third grade: Kevin Anderson, Lenski Elementary School • Fourth grade: Nolan Carmody, Franklin Elementary School • Fifth grade: Dhruv Sharma, Littleton Academy • Sixth through Eighth grades: Jonathan Schreiber, Goddard School

Long-time Littleton resident, noted broadcaster and former Littleton City Councilman Tom Mulvey, 87, died at home, Dec. 13, after a long struggle with cancer. He served on City Council for 10 years and was proud to have been the oldest member to serve, leaving council in 2009 at the age of 83 as mayor pro tem. Among the many programs Mulvey supported during his tenure on council were the renovation and expansion of Bemis Library and Littleton Museum, a third Omnibus for senior transportation with weekend service, restoration of the Arapahoe County Courthouse to house the municipal court, neighborhood traffic calming measures and neighborhood revitalization, enhancements to the light rail stations including relocation of the Rio Grande Railroad Depot and construction of the Millennium clock tower, open space acquisition, and construction of the World War II memorial. He was especially proud of his efforts in funding the extension of Little’s Creek greenway from Gallup to Caley and the walking trail on the Mary Carter Greenway along the South Platte River. He was dedicated toward working for housing programs for those in need of assistance while serving as a director on the Littleton Housing Authority from 1998 to 2005. Mulvey’s commitment to open government included his efforts to

Tom Mulvey expand the Cable TV programming on Channel 8 with live coverage of council meetings. After retiring from council, Mulvey dedicated many hours to emailing information about city council activities, city services, and community events to his extensive list of email contacts. Mulvey’s 50 years in the broadcasting and advertising profession were acknowledged in 2009 when he was inducted into the Colorado Broadcast Professionals Hall of Fame. His early career was in sales with Channel 2 in Denver and radio stations KLZ, KOA and KOSI. He became sales manager at KHOW in 1957 and was later promoted to general manager. Mulvey also served as general manager of KBTR radio and changed the format from rock to news, just the sixth station in the country to go all news. For more than two years,

Mulvey and Merrie Lynn McNabb hosted a senior talk show that aired on KHOW, KEZW and KDEN. He also taught broadcasting at Metro State College as an adjunct professor. Mulvey published and cofounded Media Memo, a broadcast industry magazine. In 1983 he created Colorado MAC News that stood for Media, Agencies and Clients. He later kept readers up to date on people and activities in the media business with his column in Advertising and Marketing Review magazine. He was one of the founders of the Metro Denver Dinosaurs as well as the Broadcast Pioneers of Colorado. Mulvey was a native of Lincoln, Neb., where he attended the University of Nebraska. He was a veteran of World War II, having entered the Navy at the age of 17. He is survived by his wife, Betty; sons Tommy Mulvey, Phil Holland, and Patrick Mulvey; daughters Diana Holland, Kathie Holland Baratta, Suzy Mulvey Velez, and Jenny Mulvey Garcia; 17 grandchildren; three great grandchildren; brother Frank Mulvey; and many nieces and nephews. He and Betty celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary in February. A memorial service will be held after Christmas.

about many things with your loved ones: from day-to-day details to big events. Sharing stories with those who matter most isn’t just important today; it will be especially significant when it’s time to honor and commemorate your lives. Memorialization at the end of life is more than it used to be. It can reflect a person’s life story and be transformative, healing and comforting. Meaningful memorialization starts when loved ones talk about what matters most: memories made, lessons learned and how they hope to be remembered.

Oudenhoven appointed president of Community College of Aurora Dr. Betsy Oudenhoven, currently serving as interim president of Community College of Aurora, has been appointed permanent president of CCA by Dr. Nancy McCallin, president of the Colorado Community College System. “Dr. Oudenhoven will assume the duties of permanent president immediately. Her work in and knowledge of the college and the community make me confident she will provide solid leadership for the college as we move forward. In both in her positions as vice-president of student affairs at CCA and as the college interim president, she has demonstrated she has the skills and commitment to take on this role,” said McCallin. “Please join me in congratulating Dr. Oudenhoven and wishing her well in her new position.” “I am honored to be appointed the next president of the Community College of Aurora. I want to thank all of the individuals who have stepped up and worked hard during this transition to make sure that we have continued to serve our students to the best of our ability,” said Oudenhoven. “The opportunity to serve as the interim president of CCA over these past five months has affirmed my faith in this institution and my pride in our wonderful faculty and staff, our inspiring students, and our generous and committed Foundation board members and community partners. CCA has a bright future and I am incredibly lucky

Kent Denver’s Speech and Debate team off to hot start Dr. Betsy Oudenhoven to be a part of it.” Prior to coming to CCA, she was the vice president of student development at Joliet Junior College in Joliet, Ill., the nation’s first public community college. She has more than 30 years of experience in higher education and has worked at four-year public state universities in Wisconsin, Minnesota and New York, a four-year private university in Illinois, and four different community colleges. Prior to becoming a vice president, Oudenhoven was the dean of counseling at the College of Lake County in Grayslake, Ill.  Oudenhoven received her Ph.D. in higher education from Loyola University Chicago, her master’s degree in counseling from the University of ColoradoBoulder, and her bachelor’s in psychology from St. Lawrence University in Canton, N.Y. 

Submitted by Kent Denver The Kent Denver Speech and Debate team recently completed its first six weeks of competition and has notched one of its most successful starts ever to a season, finishing in the top two at a local tournament and in the top 10 percent in national competitions. During the first weekend in December, eight students traveled to Washington, D.C., to compete at the George Mason Patriot Games. More than 220 teams and 1,000plus competitors competed at this major national level tournament. Thanks to some amazing individual successes, Kent Denver’s small but mighty group finished in 20th place. Seniors Danny Lovato and Bailey Walker were tournament champions in Duo Interpretation, beating

out more than 100 other duos from across the country. Junior Michael Hudson won the Humorous Interpretation title, outlasting 155 other competitors in his event. Lovato also finished third in Humorous Interpretation and fifth in Dramatic Interpretation, while Walker finished 16th in Dramatic Interpretation and senior Henry Zelenka finished 18th in Extemporaneous Speaking. Just before Thanksgiving, 21 students traveled to Chicago to compete at one of the largest Speech and Debate tournaments in the country, The Glenbrooks, which drew more than 1,800 students from 284 schools in 25 states. Kent Denver finished seventh of 284 team and had seven students break to advancement rounds after four tough preliminary rounds of

competition. In Humorous Interpretation, Lovato finished third, and Hudson finished in the top 10. In Dramatic Interpretation, Walker finished fifth. In Duo Interpretation, Lovato and Walker made it to the finals and finished fifth among more than 100 teams, while senior Hannah Monsour and junior Victoria Clark finished in the top 10. In Original Oratory, Clark and junior Anshu Agarwal advanced to the quarterfinals to finish in the top 24 out of 130 orators. Two weeks earlier, 30-plus students went to East High School for the Mile High Classic, where Kent Denver placed second out of more than 30 teams. Next weekend, the team heads to Cheyenne, Wyo., for a large regional tournament.

Letter to the Editor Thanks for your kindness, hospitality Bob Sweeney

Following the recent participation by a group of elected representatives from the Northern Ireland Assembly in the reciprocal ACYPL-Northern Ireland Assembly programme, I wanted to take the opportunity to thank you for your kindness and hospitality during the visit. Our group really appreciated that you took the time to meet with us. The warmth of your reception was tremendous and it was great to have the opportunity to meet with you and other community and business leaders during our visit. The Assembly’s partnership with ACYPL had been developing over a number of years and is greatly valued at a local level. The participation of groups from Northern Ireland in these programmes is vital in reaffirming the importance of our political institutions, providing a platform for elected representatives to enhance their capacity and help the continual development of a positive future for politics here. I really do hope that this will represent the beginning of an ongoing relationship between Northern Ireland and the great state of Colorado. We are very much looking forward to the next group from the U.S. visiting Northern Ireland in 2014. Dr. Gareth McGrath

Décor professionals offer holiday stress relief

Christmas Decor by Swingle will do the decorating for you

T

he holidays bring their own set of demands, but the chore of decorating your home or business doesn’t‚ have to be one of them. Keith McLachlan of Christmas Decor by Swingle says that for Denver residents who find that the frustrating task of inspecting which lights operate and which ones have lost their glow is taking the joy out of the season, there is a better way: Hire a professional. “Our professionals can beautifully decorate your home or business and allow you to spend more time beside the fireplace with loved ones,” said McLachlan. “Across the country, people are experiencing the absolute ease of having Christmas Decor accentuate their homes with holiday elegance.” Holiday decorating companies like Christmas Decor make it their business to provide a stress free holiday experience and McLachlan says that there are a number of reasons why people choose to have their homes and businesses decorated by a professional company. While safety is at the top of the list, many people also enjoy the peace of mind in knowing

their homes will be looking their best without too much fuss. “Quality holiday decorating, especially lighting, takes time, physical ability, design skills and knowledge of electrical limitations - things that many of us do not have,” said McLachlan. “People want a great-looking finished product and they find that the easiest way to accomplish this is to hire a professional.” Holiday stress can be some-

thing that we all deal with, but a little help from a professional holiday decorator sure can go a long way.

South Suburban and Littleton offer free tree recycling

S

outh Suburban Parks and Recreation and the City of Littleton will offer Christmas tree recycling at two locations from Dec. 26 through Jan. 13. Locations include South Suburban’s Willow Springs Service Center, 7100 S. Holly St., in Centennial and Cornerstone Park, 5150 S. Windermere St. (corner of Belleview Avenue and South Windermere Street in Littleton). Trees may be dropped daily, from sunrise to sunset, in Cornerstone’s parking lot adjacent to the soccer fields. Trees can be

dropped at Willow Springs Service Center, weekdays between 7:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. All decorations need to be removed from the tree, including lights, ornaments, garland, tinsel and stands. Flocked or artificial trees and yard refuse will not be accepted. Most trash and waste removal companies do not accept Christmas trees so district residents are encouraged to take advantage of this free program. The trees will be mulched and used in landscaping throughout the South Suburban District.

Residents can obtain free mulch, beginning Dec. 30. The mulch will be available weekdays, 7:30 a.m. until 3 p.m. at the Willow Springs site. Mulch is available from the City of Littleton yearround at the northwest corner of South Prescott Street and West Prentice Avenue. Residents are responsible for loading and are encouraged to bring bags or trashcans and a shovel or pitchfork. Call South Suburban at 303721-8478 or the City of Littleton at 303-795-3863 for more information.

Littleton seeks feedback on citywide plan Submitted by City of Littleton After a public hearing on Nov. 25, the Littleton Planning Board voted 7-0 to recommend City Council approve the Draft Citywide Plan as part of the city’s Comprehensive Plan. Council will hold a public hearing to take comments on the plan and will then consider any proposed changes. The hearing is scheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 7, 2014, at 7 p.m. at the Littleton Center, 2255 W. Berry Ave. Citizens are encouraged to review the plan before the hearing and send comments to the council

by email to dswain@littletongov. org or by mail to Dennis Swain, Senior Planner, Community Development Department, 2255 W. Berry Ave. Littleton, CO 80120. The process for updating the Citywide Plan was initiated by the planning board and city staff in the spring of 2012 with the launch of the www.InspireLITTLETON.org interactive website, as well as five public planning forums. In addition to using social media and traditional public meetings to gather feedback, staff and board members talked to hundreds of citizens at council outreach events and various com-

munity celebrations. Citizens were asked what they like about Littleton and what they think would make Littleton an even better place to live. By the end of November, 638 participants on the website had shared 553 ideas and provided 866 comments. The planning board met with City Council at key intervals during the process to receive direction in proceeding with the plan. At the end of the process, the board held three hearings to take public comment and held two study sessions to review the comments and revise the plan.

An unforgettable Christmas Past Colorado’s landmark Pikes Peak.

By Linda Wommack

T

oday, Colorado’s “winter wonderland,” especially at Christmas time, takes on an enchanted atmosphere. A century ago, it was quite different. Young Denver City of 1858 was a simple stopover city and supply station. Easterners stopped to stock up on supplies as they headed to the California Gold Rush, while Mountain Men provisioned themselves for fur trapping in the high Rocky Mountains. Although a handful of gold had been discovered at the confluence of Cherry Creek and the South Platte River (near today’s Children’s Museum), the mighty rush of gold seekers to the Pike’s Peak region that would make the 59’ers famous was six months away. As a young growing city, Denver’s possibilities were endless. A long list of future businessmen and politicians flocked to Denver, seeking their fortune. Among them were Gen. William Larimer, Samuel Curtis, William Newton Byers, E. P. Stout, John Routt and David Moffat, to name a few of Denver City’s founding fathers. The Christmas holidays of 1858 were particularly joyous for Denver City. Wild game was plentiful, as were potatoes, beans and dried fruit. All were prepared for the holiday meal. Richens L. Wooten had just arrived in Denver City with the intention of setting up a general store of sorts. Among his several wagonloads of merchandise, Wooten had many wooden kegs of “Taos Lightening.” Whiskey being almost nonexistent in Denver City, Wooten decided to make an impression with his new clientele by open-

ing a barrel or two and offering free whiskey to all. Naturally everyone accepted, word got around, and in no time, all of Denver City, as well as its rival town across the creek Auraria, were dipping cups of whiskey. The rivalry of the two towns was laid to rest, at least for the moment. Before the end of the celebration, Wooten was favorably known as “Uncle Dick,” and Denver City enjoyed their first holiday season. Wooten went on to become a prosperous merchant, while Denver City and Auraria resumed their feud. A very different Christmas Day occurred in the Colorado Rockies of 1806. President Thomas Jefferson had engaged a young lieutenant to explore the western region of his newly acquired Louisiana Purchase of 1803. Lt. Zebulon Montgomery Pike and his company of 23 men embarked from St. Louis in July 806 to discover the headwaters of the Arkansas River, as well as document the latitudes of the river and land. Provisions for such a journey included two riverboats, hardware, scientific instruments and plenty of food. What was lacking was a sufficient supply of winter clothing. This would prove disastrous. Pike and his men first saw the Colorado Rocky Mountains in mid-November 1806 from the plains of Kansas. Pike recorded the events in his journal: “I was satisfied that we had located a good route across the prairies, and Charles Press was too. I trusted the man, dour as he may be, simply because he drafted excellent maps and kept unimpeachable logs during my exploration. His readings, both at high noon and of the polestar

at night, were finer than any before attempted. Now he was daily advising me about how far we wandered from the 38th parallel. He had a certain irony in his eyes knowing full well that by all Hispanic accounts there is no practicable route over the Rockies at this latitude or even close by.” After wandering in a southeastern direction through what would later become Colorado Territory, Pike eventually found the Arkansas River near today’s town of Pueblo. Pike wrote in his journal: “We reached the valley of the Arkansas River in perfect ease, and I was satisfied that the exploration would proceed without difficulty. My outfitting had never been better despite limited funds, and we were proof against the worst that nature

could throw at us.” Unfortunately, Pike couldn’t have been more wrong. There was a small fort there, where he and his men stayed for a night. The group followed the Arkansas River westward into the Rockies. In late November, Pike and his company finally reached the base of the prominent peak they had seen from afar and named it Grand Peak. The group made plans to climb the great mountain the following day. According to Pike’s Journal: “Expecting to return to our camp that evening we left all blankets and provisions at the foot of the mountain. We commenced climbing up rocks, sometimes perpendicular; and after marching all day we encamped in a cave without blankets, victuals or water.”

The next day the summit was reached and to Pike’s astonishment, his “Grand Peak” was seen some distance away. He had actually climbed Cheyenne Mountain. Today, the Grand Peak near Colorado Springs, that Pike claimed could not be conquered, bears his name. Pike and his men, disheartened, continued the president’s orders, following the Arkansas River northwest, higher into the Rockies. The high altitude, bitter cold and biting wind took their toll on the animals, and the men were forced to trudge on foot for days through miserable snowstorms. Finally camp was made on the Arkansas River, near the mouth of Squaw Creek, at the base of Mount Antero. It was Christmas 1806. The day was very cold and snowing. From Pike’s Journal, “Eight hundred miles from the frontiers [sic] of our country, in the most inclement of weather, not one person clothed for winter, without blankets, and now laying down at night on the snow or wet ground; one side burning while the other side pierced with the cold wind. I will not speak of diet, as I conceive that to be benieth [sic] the consideration of a man on such a voyage. We spent the holiday as agreeably as could be expected.” Such was the dismal Christmas Day spent by Colorado’s most famous explorer, Zebulon Montgomery Pike. We should give Yuletide thanks to the early explorers and pioneers of long ago who dared to open up a new wilderness, enduring countless hardships that would lead to westward expansion and eventually Colorado, USA. Happy Holidays!

How Denver became the

Christmas Capital of the World By Rosemary Fetter

very holiday season, thousands of wideeyed spectators delight in Denver’s Grand Illumination, a series of outdoor lighting displays that cut a glittering path from the City and County Building to Union Station. Often appearing on national news, the lights of Denver brighten the night sky during the holidays and glow through December, keeping shoppers in the holiday spirit. City and County lights remain in place after New Year’s to welcome the National Western Rodeo and Stock Show in early January. This holiday extravaganza, a cherished Denver tradition, dates back nearly a century. Denver’s love affair with holiday lighting can be credited to Frances Belford Wayne, a Central City girl and the crusading daughter of an Indiana Supreme Court justice and a social reformer. Judge James Belford moved his family to Central City during the gold rush days, becoming a member of the Territorial Supreme Court and Colorado’s first congressman. He was labeled the “Red-Headed Rooster of the Rockies” by his peers because of his passionate speeches and bright red hair, both of which were inherited by his daughter. His wife, Frances McEwen Belford, had a strong social conscience and reputedly read Dante and Shakespeare to the poor women in the mining camp while she rocked her daughter’s cradle. Mrs. Belford became the first woman named to the Colorado Board of Charities and a trustee of the State College of Education in Greeley and the agricultural college Fort Collins, now Colorado State University. Their daughter, nicknamed “Pinky,” made a name for herself in the days when women journalists were jokingly called “sob

sisters.” She began her career in 1906 as a drama and music critic for the Rocky Mountain News, quickly rising to the position of feature writer and investigative reporter. She was briefly married to educator Anthony Wayne, but they separated in 1908 and she never remarried. After a brief stint with the Chicago Examiner, Pinky returned to Denver to work for the bombastic Fred Bonfils and Harry Tammen at The Denver Post. During her career, along with interviewing hundreds of celebrities and writing stories on every topic from drug addiction to labor wars, she campaigned for laws to protect women and children, working with reformers like Judge Ben Lindsey, founder of the Juvenile Court system, and Emily Griffith, who created Denver’s Opportunity School for working students. Although critics accused her of “moralizing

Decorations and a Christmas tree, circa 1910 -1915.

and preaching,” her stories often hit home. In 1922, the University of Colorado awarded her a gold medal for “services on behalf of the common good.” Interestingly, Pinky’s most outstanding achievement would be her successful effort to make Denver world famous as the Queen City of outdoor Christmas lighting. Of course, electric holiday lighting was nothing new. The invention of the light bulb inspired the first electrically lit Christmas tree in New York City in 1882. The following year, Denver, a pioneer in the use of electricity, followed suit. The Lawrence Street Methodist Church proudly displayed a tree glowing with 30 incandescent bulbs, a demonstration orchestrated by University of Denver physics professor Sidney Short. Electric lights were used as early as 1892,

but they were very expensive. A string of lights cost at least $12, an average man’s weekly wages in 1903. No wonder many still lit their trees with candles and kept a water bucket handy. The first outdoor lighting, however, came about through coincidence. A Denver electrician named David Dwight Sturgeon, founder of the electric company, produced the first display in 1914 to cheer his young grandson, who was very ill and missing out on holiday festivities. Sturgeon dipped some ordinary light bulbs in red and green paint, connected them to electrical wire and strung the glowing lights on the branches of a pine tree outside the boy’s bedroom window. Both the child and the neighbors were delighted. Pinky Wayne, who organized and managed the Post Christmas party for underprivileged

children, picked up the story and wrote several articles on the topic. Soon people all over the city were driving by the Sturgeon home to inspect the novelty. Thanks to Pinky’s articles, the idea of electrical decoration took hold and Sturgeon became known as the “Father of Yule Lighting.” In 1918, Pinky organized the nation’s first outdoor lighting contest. Hundreds of Denver residences entered, and the venture received national publicity. Other towns and cities soon adopted the plan. The following year John Malpiede, at the time Denver’s only city electrician, decided to brighten the Christmas scene by replacing the white lights around Civic Center with colored red and green globes and added evergreen boughs to the lampposts. In 1920, he installed the first lighted Christmas tree in front of the State Capitol. Over the years, he added more lights and scavenged Christmas items from around the city for the annual display. In 1926, he persuaded Mayor Ben Stapleton to let him decorate the exterior of City Hall. By the late 1920s, Denver had become “The Christmas Capital of the World.” Nearly a century later, the city’s holiday lighting display is still the largest in the world. Interestingly, the colored electric globe evolved due to the efforts of Denver citizens led by Wayne, who compelled manufacturers to come up with an affordable product that would work indoors and outdoors regardless of the weather. As a result, electric billboards all over the nation soon began to flash with colored globes, to the eternal gratitude of advertisers. Thus, the flashing neon sign was born. In 1946, the Denver Branch of the Business and Professional Women’s Club named Wayne the Woman of the Year. She continued writing for The Post until she was fired due to a dispute with the managing editor. She moved back to her hometown of Central City and worked for a time at the Central City Register Call, succumbing to cancer in 1951.

The Cupola’s Candid Cam Web feed is Littleton’s 24-hour ‘reality show’ By Peter Jones f you happen to see a group of people waving aimlessly in front of Littleton Municipal Courthouse, rest assured it’s not contagious. “It might look weird, but I know what they’re doing,” said City of Littleton webmaster Cathy Weaver, who drives by the popular spot several times a day. Those enthusiastic folks are waving at Littleton’s Cupola Cam II. If you missed Cupola Cam I, this new and improved bird’s eye view of Downtown Littleton is bigger, brighter and arguably better than its predecessor. With a few clicks of a mouse on the city website – www.littleton gov.org - anyone in the world can catch real-time moving images of Main Street, Arapahoe Community College and Carnegie Library, among a host of other sites. Why? Weaver hesitates briefly while searching for her words. “Entertainment,” she said, with some hesitance. “People use it to see the weather, see the traffic. My mom and dad use it to watch the candlelight walk because sometimes it’s too cold to come down.” Such visitors can also zoom in, move the camera around and even get panoramic views of Downtown Denver and Red Rocks Amphitheater. If more than one web-

I

site visitor wants control, a virtual queue forms to the right. But back to those waving camera fans, which Weaver says typically have an intended audience – in Poughkeepsie, N.Y., Bega, Australia, or even the Far East.

“I got a call from a guy in China who called to thank the city. His daughter lived in Littleton,” Weaver said. “People gather their friends and their relatives. They go down there with their cell phones and call Uncle Henry,

who’s in Virginia or whatever, and say, ‘OK, we’re here. Jump on the Internet.” Yes, indeed – even in this era of Skype and FaceTime. It was a use for Cupola Cam that few at the city had predicted. The official greeting site outside the courthouse was eventually established, mostly for safety reasons, after hand wavers began conglomerating around the Year of Sundays sculpture in middle of busy Littleton Boulevard.

“One family who had lots of children would go stand on that statue, call their relatives and wave – I thought, oh my gosh, that’s a little dangerous,” Weaver said. The Cupola Cam has become increasingly popular since the original camera was installed in 2002. The page averages 87 visits per day. The Cam does not record so it will not be very useful to Littleton police or angry privacy advocates. To view the Cam, click on “Community” or “Enjoy Littleton” from the city website homepage.
