LEAP helps families stay warm during winter

W

ith harsh conditions and record low temperatures recorded so far this winter, many people are having a hard time staying warm. One Denver family is able to fight the cold weather this winter, thanks in part to the Low-Income Energy Assistance Program (LEAP). Donna Shelton lives with a large household, including her sister and three children under the age of 3.  Shelton is an employee at the Denver Rescue Mission and is the sole provider for all five members of the family. In the family’s free time, they enjoy visiting Denver’s cultural venues and spending time at the zoo.  Life has not always been easy for the unconventional family of five. Shelton’s sister had to

move in with her to escape an abusive relationship, and a back injury required Shelton to reduce her hours at work, putting a financial burden on the family. While the family’s situation is improving every day, it has been a struggle to make ends meet.  Shelton needed a solution to help her and her family get back on their feet. Shelton found a part of that solution through LEAP, a program designed to

pay a portion of a home heating bill during the winter season. In November, Shelton applied to the program and heard back from them that same day.  When

she learned her LEAP application had been approved Shelton said, “I was extremely excited.” The program has helped Shelton feel more secure. “I am so happy and very blessed. I don’t know what would have happened if we had not been approved,” she said. E v e n though life hasn’t always been easy for Shelton, she maintains an optimistic attitude. She stresses the positives always outweigh the negatives. For more information on the leap program or to apply for heating assistance visit: www. denvergov.org/leap or call 1-866-HEAT-HELP.

Mayor Hancock Snowmaking is under way for waives credit card the return of Ruby Hill Rail Yard transaction fees The City and County of Denver is waiving transaction fees for paying by credit or debit card in an effort to encourage residents and businesses to pay their taxes, fees, bills and fines online. This new initiative, part of Mayor Michael B. Hancock’s 2014 budget, will save Denver residents and businesses an estimated $2 million a year.  Waiving credit card transaction fees is a first-of-its-kind effort for Denver. Online payment is often a more convenient way to do business with the city while also being less costly for the city to process

compared with an in-person or mail-in check transaction.  As of Jan. 1, fees for paying taxes (including property, sales, use, lodgers, occupational privilege, Facilities Development Admission and Telecommunications Business taxes) online with a credit or debit card have been eliminated. Transaction fees charged by the state for motor vehicle registration and by third party processing firms for parking, photo radar and red-light violations will continue to be assessed, with the goal to waive these by 2015.

Back for its eighth consecutive season, the Ruby Hill Rail Yard is preparing to open this week. Volunteers from Denver Parks and Recreation and Winter Park Resort have begun making snow in anticipation of opening the rail yard for the 2014 season, bringing the excitement of skiing and snowboarding to Denver with a free urban rail yard.  “This is a one-of-a-kind program for our residents and visitors,” said Mayor Michael B. Hancock.  “For many of our younger residents, this gives them their first exposure to mountain sports in a more familiar setting, encouraging them to have fun, learn new skills and stay active.”   Volunteer crews have begun making snow and will continue the operation nonstop until

enough snow has been made to cover the slope. Once it opens, the Ruby Hill Rail Yard will feature six to eight rails of varying configurations and skill level. If the weather cooperates, the rail yard will be open for approximately six to eight weeks. Christy Sports has again signed on to be an equipment sponsor, providing free ski and snowboard equipment for use while at Ruby Hill. Volunteers will staff the equipment area to ensure proper fitting and adjustments. Youth, ages 8-17, will need to have a parent present to sign a release form before snowboards and/or skis will be loaned out.  “The rail yard at Ruby Hill would not be possible without all of the support we get from our partners at Winter Park Resort

and Christy Sports,” said Lauri Dannemiller, manager of Denver Parks and Recreation. “This is a very creative way to bring a piece of the mountain ski resorts into Denver and activate this wonderful park during the frigid winter months.”  The Christy Sports on-site facility will be open on Fridays from 3 – 8 p.m., Saturdays from 11 a.m. – 7 p.m. and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.  Information and details about Opening Day, will be shared once there is enough snow and rails are in place.  Ruby Hill Park is located off South Platte River Drive and West Florida Avenue. The park is open every day from 5 a.m. – 11 p.m. and lights will be on at the rail yard until 9 p.m.

School break-in under investigation Renovated Englewood campus debuted last month By Peter Jones Less than a month after the grand opening of the new and renovated Englewood High School campus, police are investigating a weekend break-in that caused several small fires and thousands of dollars in damage to the $45 million state-of-the-art facility. Video surveillance shows that at least three males who appeared to be in their 20s entered the school in the early morning hours of Jan. 12, according to Englewood Police Investigator Kevin Sage. The suspects did not appear to be high school students. Sage says the men smashed several school windows, damaged property in the computer lab and started multiple fires in the band room. The sprinkler system put out the fires, but some rooms, including an orchestra

pit, were flooded. Englewood firefighters were the first responders to the scene due to a fire-alarm activation. They contacted police after broken glass was discovered. The three suspects entered from the south side of the old high school and caused damage there before making their way to the new areas of the campus. Once inside, they caused extensive damage by destroying property and starting fires. Several items of evidence were discovered, according to a police press release, but details were not provided. Classes for EHS and Englewood Leadership Academy, which also uses the building, were cancelled on Jan. 13 Officers from Arapahoe County, Cherry Hills Village and Sheridan assisted in the investigation.

2014 DUI enforcement kicks off with 431 arrests Fewer alcohol-related fatalities continues as goal for CDOT, law enforcement New Year’s Eve celebrations quickly turned sour for many users of Colorado roadways who chose to ring in 2014 by driving impaired. Preliminary reports indicate that 431 people were arrested for DUI during the New Year’s Eve enforcement period in conjunction with the Colorado Department of Transportation’s ongoing The Heat Is On impaired driving prevention campaign. The New Year’s Eve crackdown began on Dec. 27, and lasted through Jan. 2. Arrest totals in 2013 were lower than the 2012 New Year’s Eve enforcement period, when 501 people were arrested for DUI. During the 2013 New Year’s Eve enforcement period, there was one alcoholrelated fatality In encouraging Coloradans to “Drink and Don’t Drive,” CDOT supports an individual’s right to celebrate, so long as they do so responsibly and don’t put the lives of others in danger. Overall, 6,989 people were arrested during 12 enforcement periods in 2013, a 28 percent decrease from the 9,784 arrests reported during the same enforcement periods in 2012.

“Our troopers operate under the mission of keeping Colorado safe, first and foremost,” said Colonel Scott Hernandez, chief of the Colorado State Patrol. “We hope that people continue to hear the message about the dangers of driving impaired. Being arrested for DUI is a real nightmare—it’s expensive, it can result in loss of driving privileges and it’s incredibly dangerous for the individual and those around them.” “It’s comforting to know that CSP and many other top-notch Colorado law enforcement agencies are doing their part to keep impaired drivers off Colorado roads,” said Darrell Lingk, director of the Office of Transportation Safety at CDOT. “Each year we strive for zero fatalities—2014 is no exception.” Preliminary reports show that the highest arrest totals came from the Denver Police Department (49 arrests), Aurora Police Department (36 arrests), Colorado Springs Police Department (28 arrests) and Larimer County Sheriff’s Office (26 arrests). The Heat Is On campaign runs throughout the year with 12 DUI enforcement periods centered on national holidays and large public events.

Book donations still needed for 
‘Colorado Reads – The Early Literacy’ book drive One third of fourth graders read below a basic level.  This number is significantly higher in minority groups, according to the National Center for Education Statistics. Denverites can fight for childhood literacy by donating new or gently used books for third graders and younger to Colorado Reads – The Early Literacy Initiative book drive. The drive is collecting books now through Jan. 17 at a variety of local locations. The AmeriCorps Community Building Partnership for Youth in Transition, a program based at Denver Human Services, is one of several AmeriCorps Colorado programs seeking 25,000 new and gently used book donations for children in third grade and

younger.   “Books are a valuable resource that allows people to use their imagination to access the world around them,” said Nelson Hardin, AmeriCorps CBPYT Member. “This drive will directly impact the youth that we serve all across Colorado. We still need thousands of book donations to reach our goal, especially books that are written for Spanish-speaking children.” The book drive coincides with AmeriCorps CBPYTs Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service. All donated books will be sorted on Martin Luther King Day and distributed to organizations impacted by the recent Colorado floods and nonprofits that help at-risk youth.

AmeriCorps CBPYT has partnered with the following organizations where donors can drop off new and gently used books: Denver Human Services Castro Building (1200 Federal Blvd, Denver) Webb Building (201 W Colfax Ave., Denver) Stella’s Coffee (1476 S Pearl St., Denver) Alfalfas (1651 Broadway St., Boulder) Golden Public Library (1019 10th St., Golden) Boulder Public Library (1001 Arapahoe Ave., Boulder) Teens INC (151 E 1st St., Nederland) For a complete list of drop off locations, visit www.cbpytameri corps.org.

Libraries provide free movie and music streaming Patrons can view up to 5 titles per month By Peter Jones Arapahoe Library District has been checking out CDs and DVDs for years, and now patrons can get their free movies and music without even leaving home. If that sounds like Netflix with a library card, you’re streaming in the right direction. Starting this month, the district enters the world of cyber entertainment via new contracts with Hoopla

Digital and IndieFlix, which together are providing more than 15,000 movies, television shows and songs to local library cardholders. “We’re really trying to get into the digital space in offering our patrons content in the way they want to consume it,” said Oli Sanidas, Arapahoe’s digital-services director. “The trend is going toward streaming, even beyond downloading.” Arapahoe is the fourth Colorado library district to offer free streaming through services such as Hoopla, a website geared toward its more than 40 library-system clients, and

IndieFlix, a movie-oriented site that also sells individual memberships. In the case of Arapahoe’s cardholders, patrons can simply go to the two websites and input their library-card number. Content can be streamed immediately. By contract with the two providers, cardholders can stream up to five titles per month, which can be viewed on computers, tablets, smartphones and some gaming devices. There is also a Hoopla app. The district has budgeted $39,600 annually for the services now available to the district’s

250,000 cardholders. Library patrons from other districts can also stream content by acquiring an Arapahoe sticker for their card. More than 300 people have opened accounts since the services began on Jan. 2. “We’re trying to get the word out that libraries are a place where you can get digital content. That’s always a bit of a struggle,” said Cindy Phillips, the district’s manager of library materials. The other challenge is keeping a diverse catalogue of material. Although Hoopla has contracts with the likes of Paramount Pictures,

Warner and MGM, the two library services are not as comprehensive as Netflix or Amazon Prime, for example. “What we’re trying to figure out is the scale of it,” Sanidas said. “Getting all of the Triple-A content – that is the hard part.” The larger trend is libraries providing services well beyond the traditional book checkout. Arapahoe even offers a digital recording studio free of charge. “We’re always looking for opportunities for our patrons to use the library and new ways for them to think of us,” Sanidas said.

Heartland of America doing very well KINDLING

By Robert Sweeney

I was remembering Gene Cervi last week and his fine newspaper. He passed thru Craig and visited my Craig Daily Press one afternoon and shared some of his wisdom on now to print and publish a lively newspaper. Needless to say, I paid great attention to what he had to say and he was a giant in the weekly newspaper world. Another giant was Haus Waring of The Littleton Independent,

who guided that local newspaper for decades and hosted a Sunday morning brunch at Columbine Country Club that I was privileged to attend on occasion. Most newspaper people like to talk and have many opinions, that’s what we get paid for – right or wrong. One of Cervi’s points was for newspaper professionals to get out of ivory towers and onto the main street of towns and the countryside and see what is really transpiring with the public. Too often, mail or watching television programs and listening to radio talk show hosts form our opinions. Cervi advocated visiting small towns and talking with folks on the street. We spent an afternoon discussing state history, economics and the newspaper business. He urged me to start a newspaper city delivery within the town and I did, which was very successful. I would always see him at the annual Colorado Press Conven-

tion where he urged publishers to take a stand on issues. Newspapers have been leaders in editorial positions since the days of Ben Franklin, and he urged us to maintain our vigilance and opinions for our communities and citizens. To this day, television political advertising quotes newspaper positions and endorsement of candidates and issues. We took Cervi’s advice last week and toured the Midwest, visiting newspaper friends in Sheldon, Iowa, and Blair, Neb. We rambled through Orange City and Sioux Center and dined in Sibley, Iowa, at the 1015 local diner on New Year’s Eve. We teased the waitress and visited with local folks along the way in business firms and a local bakery. The Midwest is busy, prosperous, a layer of fresh snow covered the vast fertile cornfields that feed and fuel America and the world. We had some Blue Bunny ice cream, some chalk licorice, some

Iowa ham, an excellent home cooked New Year’s Day dinner at publisher Peter and Connie Wagner’s home in Sibley. He took us touring printing plants, a new 13-unit printing press being delivered to a new 25,000 sq. ft. building. Newspapers aren’t dead in Iowa, and Nebraska had a similar story. Blair papers are booming and of course Warren Buffet knows a good deal and is buying up more newspapers to add to his Omaha World Herald chain. We came home enthused and invigorated by what we saw in the rural Midwest, the nation’s breadbasket is booming and this business extends all the way to Colorado. This will be a great year. Have a good attitude and work hard on your job and at your business firm. America is bouncing back strong!

We forgot a local hero REMARKS

By Mort Marks

Unfortunately, we all do forget many real heroes and their past accomplishments. For example, Dec. 27 passed by without any mention in any of our local media that on that date in 1982 a true native Colorado hero died. His name – Jack Swigert. Jack was born and raised in Denver where he attended Blessed Sacrament School, Regis High School and graduated from East High School.

Your Weekly Horoscope – By Gren Chatworth Taurus (April 20 – May 20) ou and your partner are very eager to please each other this week. If you are unattached, get out and mingle – you could meet someone interesting at an event sponsored by a social club or gathering.

Virgo (Aug 23 – Sept 22) This is a good time to make decisions, especially if one of them involves taking a risk. It’s also an excellent time to resolve any relationship issues that have been bothering you lately. Remember to speak up for what you desire.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20) If you are not feeling well get medical advice before a minor problem becomes more serious. You are fortunate to have a wonderful family network that will be there for you if needed.

Libra (Sept 23 – Oct 22) There will be inspirations for money-making ideas and helpful insights can erupt from unlikely places. Bounce your dreams and visions for future prospects off a trusted adviser, counselor or friend.

Pisces (Feb 19 – March 20) Surprises are in store for you this week, and this time they are all good ones. An inheritance could come your way very shortly. Right now you are having a great time with friends that will lift your spirits.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22) Your skills as a negotiator may be drafted. Your presence can have a calming effect on disgruntled family members or coworkers. Don’t be a victim of another’s trade.

Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21) A friend may come to you for advice, but you would be better off not getting involved in his or her problems at this time. They are not ready to hear the truth, even though you are ready to give it.

Aries (March 21 - April 19) Understanding your potential can leave you out of the big picture. Get control of your emotions and put your ‘best foot forward”. Don’t take a back seat to anyone in the firm.

Leo (July 23 – Aug 22) Your solar chart looks very promising but some slight confusion in your mind may tend to upset you this week. Take things as they are at present with an open mind. Rewards will come.

Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21) Turn high ideals into reality through unbridled optimism. Fiercely held beliefs may crumble under careful scrutiny. It’s never too late and you are never too old to make life-enhancing changes. Start now.

Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19) Your bottled up enthusiasm is breaking loose this week. You will be pleasantly surprised what will happen if you steer your ambition in the right direction. Your work will pay off for you. Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 18) You will find the week will start with a bang. You will be making important, helpful contacts. You might even consider going into business with a friend or two.

Support homeless pets during Pledges for Pets Telethon Jan. 26 Sit … Stay … Watch … and make a pledge to support homeless pets at the Dumb Friends League on Sunday, Jan. 26. Tune in to the 16th annual Pledges for Pets Telethon, sponsored by Hill’s Science Diet, on FOX31/KDVR from noon to 5 p.m. During the five-hour live broadcast, viewers will hear heartwarming adoption stories, as well as meet dozens of adoptable pets, including cats, dogs, rabbits and other small pets. “Animal lovers will see the many ways the Dumb Friends League helps pets, horses and people in our community,” said Bob Rohde, president and CEO. “They’ll also see how their donations can make a lifechanging difference for thousands of homeless animals that come into our care every year.” The Dumb Friends League hopes to raise more than $300,000 during this year’s telethon. The funds raised will help provide loving care and vital services for thousands of cats, dogs and other

small animals, as well as abused and neglected horses at the Dumb Friends League Harmony Equine Center. A private, nonprofit organization, the Dumb Friends League spends $25,121 a day on companion animal services, including $7,965 daily on veterinary care in our shelters and on our two mobile clinics. An additional $2,017 a day is spent on equine services, including veterinary care, feed, rehabilitation and training for the animals at the equine center. “Any dollar amount—whether it’s a one-time or monthly contribution—will have a direct impact on the pets and people that count on us each and every day,” Rohde said. Last year, 16,885 animals were adopted to new homes or returned to their owners by the Dumb Friends League. The organization also offers other critical services, includ-

ing lost and found, humane education, behavior training, foster care, animal cruelty investigations and spay/neuter surgeries at reduced fees (subsidized by Dumb Friends League donors) for pets in underserved areas. The Pledges for Pets Telethon will be hosted by FOX31 on-air talent, including Brooke Wagner, Kirk Yuhnke, Chris Parente, Ken Clark, Jennifer Broome, Chris Tomer, Shaul Turner, Chris Jose, Shanna Mendiola and Dan Daru. Denise Plante and Murphy Huston of KOSI 101 will also help emcee the telethon. For more information about the Dumb Friends League and the telethon, visit ddfl.org/telethon or call 303-751-5772. Pet lovers who are unable to watch the telethon can still make pledges online or by calling 303-751-5772.
