Chef Tom Bruce earns Distinguished Teacher Award

T

he Denver Teachers’ Awards organization announced the finalists for its 2013-2014 Distinguished Teachers Award and among the winners is CEC Middle College Culinary Arts teacher, Chef Tom Bruce. Bruce has dedicated 25 years of service at CEC, teaching high school students the art of commercial cooking, preparing them for advanced culinary arts training and for many, ultimately working in the field. Having begun his culinary career at age 15, Bruce has worked his way up from dishwasher to executive chef over the course of his career and has worked at several well-known five-star restaurants. This experience has translated well to the classroom and training kitchen, teaching students not

only the technical aspects of cooking, but guiding them on the pathway to success in the field. The Distinguished Teachers Award recognizes outstanding teachers who have served five or more years in the Denver Public Schools. While the schools do the nominating, the judging, scoring and final selection, are completed by a committee of college professors. CEC Principal Scott Springer said, “As a master chef, Tom could certainly make a lot more money in the culinary profession, but money does not drive his passion for his work.   His commitment to our students and CEC drives his work everyday and is quite evident. His passion for teaching young people the art of food

preparation, responsibility, and work place skills brings out the best in his students.” Bruce is inspired by the collective CEC experience and credits his success to many facets of his job. “It is great honor to be acknowledged as a Distinguished Teacher for DPS, however a huge part of my success can be attributed to my fellow culinary instructors as well as that of my co-workers. I have a genuine and sincere passion for teaching students to cook. My greatest joy in teaching is to see a students overcome an obstacle through perseverance and to witness that special moment when the students achieves success,” he said. The awards banquet will be held on May 8 at the Doubletree in Denver.

Mayor Michael B. Hancock and Denver Arts & Venues released Denver’s first cultural plan in 25 years. IMAGINE 2020: Denver’s Cultural Plan provides a strategic vision for the city’s arts, culture and creativity, and sets a bold agenda to achieve in seven years. Through an inclusive, datadriven public input process that asked residents to imagine its cultural future, IMAGINE 2020 was created for Denverites by Denverites. “From the small galleries along Santa Fe or the Big Blue Bear, to the trio performing at a bar on South Broadway or a headlining band stirring a sold out crowd at Red Rocks Amphitheatre, arts and culture are the heart of this great city,” Mayor Hancock said, standing before a recently installed work of public art in the Colorado Convention Center. “They are a critical aspect of our economy, identity and global competitiveness, and moreover, they are a point of pride for residents. IMAGINE 2020 captures the aspirations Denverites have for their city and will help focus the support we and our partners provide to the city’s arts and culture.”

Every child deserves a safe environment as well as a court system that understands their needs and looks out for their best interest. I was privileged enough to grow up in a safe environment with a loving and caring family and every child deserves the same. As your state representative, I truly believe that it is necessary to help those children in need and provide my constituents with the information on how they can get out and make a difference in our community. I am always eager to speak to you answer any questions or address any concerns you may have on this issue or any issue that is important to you. You can call me at 303-866-2966 or send me an email at Jeanne.Labuda.house@ state.co.us. I look forward to hearing from you.

Mayor Hancock and Denver Arts & Venues Executive Director Kent Rice today announced a series of early achievements to kick-start implementation of Denver’s new cultural plan: • New Public Art – Seven new works by Colorado artists have been installed at the Colorado Convention Center. • Artspace study – Artspace Projects, a national leader in artist-led community

transformation, will conduct a feasibility study of an affordable, mixed-use development in the North Denver Cornerstone Collaborative neighborhood of River North. • P.S. You Are Here – A new grant program administered by Denver Arts & Venues that provides funding for public placemaking activities in Denver’s neighborhoods. • Enhanced Denver365. com – Based on significant public feedback, VISIT DENVER is enhancing the website to give residents and visitors an easy-to-use, comprehensive online event calendar that features all of Denver’s arts and entertainment offerings. “We have crafted a shared vision for Denver’s artistic, cultural and creative future,” Rice said. “We all have the responsibility of leadership going forward, and with the help of our partners we will implement this plan and continue to make our city great.”  

‘For Denver, by Denver’

More than 5,000 people helped create IMAGINE 2020, the city’s first cultural plan since 1989. It was informed by feedback received through online community input tools, a scientific public phone survey, the Mayor-appointed Commission on Cultural Affairs and Stakeholder Leadership Group of more than 100 people, City Council district forums, a series of 11 listening sessions, and dozens of events and presentations. More than seven months of public input yielded seven “Vision Elements” that serve as the foundation of the plan. Each vision includes goals – and strategies to achieve them – that will be pursued during the plan’s implementation throughout the next seven years. “You told us that Denver is

an arts town, and that you want to see more of the arts in your daily lives,” Arts & Venues Executive Director Kent Rice said. “That is exactly what this plan will work to deliver.”  

Top priorities

Ten of the 50 goals identified in IMAGINE 2020 have been identified as priorities for the city: • Increase visibility of local artistic and creative talent; • Launch a public/private partnership with a focus on building the infrastructure necessary for 21st century cultural development and promotion; • Identify, inventory and rank availability of arts, culture and creativity in every neighborhood, noting cultural deserts; • Address barriers that limit participation such as affordability, transportation and other factors; • Increase availability of affordable and accessible live/ work spaces for creative sector workers; • Launch an alliance of organizations committed to inclusiveness and engagement in arts and culture; • Inventory all arts, cultural, and creative enterprises for policy and messaging purposes; • Offer a “Culture Cash” gift card, with proceeds benefiting IMAGINE 2020 initiatives; • Support Denver Public Schools’ arts education strategic plan; and • Maximize www.Denver365.com website for residents and visitors. “Denver has a strong foundation of arts, culture and creativity,” Hancock said. “IMAGINE 2020 will build on our successes, inspire us to take the city’s creative economy to the next level and increase our global competitiveness.”

Denver Digs Trees Earth Day tree sale, April 19 Fruit trees included in sale The Park People’s Denver Digs Trees Spring Sale means trees, trees and more trees for Denverites looking for a unique way to celebrate Earth Day, while beautifying their yards and enhancing Denver’s urban forest. The annual Earth Day Tree Sale is on Saturday, April 19, 9 a.m. – noon. The sale is held at two convenient locations, City Park Greenhouse (just east of York St. on East 23rd Ave) and the Sloan’s Lake Park Boathouse (north side of the lake off Byron Place and Wolff Street). This year’s sale features small ornamental trees as well as a selection of fruit bearing trees, including peach, plum, cherry and apple. A small assortment of larger shade trees also may be available. Trees cost between $45-$65, and any leftover trees will be sold on Sunday, April 20, 1-4 p.m. at City Park Greenhouse. “Our Denver Digs Trees Earth Day sale has become a Denver tradition,” said Kim Yuan-Farrell, The Park People’s executive director. “Every tree purchased at our event will add to the more than 46,000 trees planted through our Denver Digs Trees program in the last 25 years. Plus, every one of these trees beautifies our city, enhances property values, provides shade and improves air quality.” According to Yuan-Farrell, this year’s tree sale is even more vital. Recently, arborists and forestry experts have expressed concern about Emerald Ash Borer, a pest that was discovered on the Front Range

last September. With 15 percent of Denver’s tree cover consisting of ash trees, the detection of this insect in Colorado raises concerns about the health of the city’s urban forest. While the full impact of the Emerald Ash Borer invasion may not be felt for a decade, enhancing Denver’s tree canopy now will minimize the negative impact of ash trees lost to the infestation.

had to pay a hefty $35,000 fee. Clark later offered the university an additional 200 acres adjacent to the school to be platted as a town site. More than 2,500 lots would be sold, with proceeds donated to the university. Although he was getting on in years, Evans vigorously promoted the new town of South Denver and served as president of the board until his death in 1897. On April 3, 1890, builders laid the cornerstone for University Hall, designed by famed Denver architect Robert Roeschlaub. Two years later, the Iliff School of Theology opened across from University Hall, a gift from William Seward Iliff, Elizabeth’s stepson. Unfortunately, a major Depression hit Colorado in 1893, putting an end to the golden (and silver) years. Hard times forced South Denver to merge with Denver proper in 1894. Also suffering the effects of the Depression, the Iliff School of Theology closed in 1890 af-

ter splitting from DU. The Iliff School later opened under private management. Although Evans continually donated more lands and funds, this left DU even further in debt. He died in 1897. Despite obstacles, the university thrived; the school boasted 607 students by 1898-99, the largest student population in university history. As Denver pulled out of the Depression, University Park and surrounding neighborhoods blossomed. In 1899, Henry Buchtel became the new chancellor of the university. A gifted fundraiser and politician, Buchtel managed in three years to rescue DU from bankruptcy. New buildings sprung up during his tenure as chancellor, including the first library and a new science building. Buchtel was elected Colorado governor in 1906, splitting his time between the university and the Capitol. He refused a second term so he could devote all his energy to DU. Since its earliest years, the

University of Denver has symbolized quality education, boasting prominent graduates such as Peter Coors, chairman of Molson Coors Brewing Company; and former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. Multiple events have been planned for the sesquicentennial celebration, including forums, panels, festivals and concerts, along with campus traditions, including Homecoming and Family Weekend and the Pioneer Symposium. A “History and Traditions” exhibit inside the university’s Anderson Academic Commons portrays the university’s story through photographs, historical memorabilia and other artifacts from the university’s archives.

OPINION

– DENVER –

Winter cabin fever hitting season high KINDLING

By Robert Sweeney

Looks like winter is coming to an end and word comes that the fruit trees in Grand Junction’s Mesa County are starting to blossom with those apricots, peaches, apples and cherries. Let’s hope

that an early freeze won’t decimate our future fruit crop headed for the grocery stores. The general word around Denver among Broncos fans is that John Elway and company has really done a good job with free agency and has greatly enhanced our defense. We’ve lost Champ Bailey and he is named right, he really was a “Champ” and played well for Denver. We owe him a big “thank you” for his leadership and outstanding play. Years just started catching up with Champ, but watch him become a star for another NFL team, he still has some magic left in those aging legs. Sorry to lose Decker as well, but we have adequate receivers and the Jets will reportedly pay him $30 million. We wish him

great success in the Big Apple. Biggest shock of the upcoming seasons is getting a bill for the two season tickets that have been owned for the last 30 years. Ticket prices have risen considerably and I guess that is the price of success. If we want to win, it takes highly paid players; we have reached the top of the food chain for football players here in Denver. As long as fans buy high-priced tickets, players will receive large contracts. It is a shame that we place such a high priority on sports and such a low priority on paying schoolteachers. In the long haul of our society, who will be more important, the teachers and classrooms or the athletes and the touchdowns? Hands down the winner should

be teachers and classrooms. But, like the Romans, we enjoy our entertainment and going to the coliseum on Sunday or viewing the games on television, which has become a way of American life. Baseball is coming soon and will include instant replay for the first time in history. Basketball March Madness is underway and we’ll watch the best college basketball teams fight until the end. A new season of Dancing With The Stars is arriving and for those who like dancing, this is an enjoyable show – my, what dancing can do for the figure! Crimea will rejoin Russia no matter what the United States thinks, once a Russian always a Russian. This is not our fight.

Is history repeating itself? REMARKS

By Mort Marks

“While I nodded nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping. As if someone gently rapping at the chamber door.” Although Edgar Allan Poe wrote those words in 1845, 169 years ago, they certainly apply to the history of our world, because events have shown that foreign dictators have come “tapping” and “rapping” at our friendly countries’ doors and have always found them “napping.” For example – The most evil dictator that history has ever recorded named Adolf Hitler was

Your Weekly Horoscope – By Gren Chatworth ARIES (March 21 – April 19) You have been working very hard and it is about to pay off for you. Your efforts were not in vain and you will be more than surprised by the outcome of it all.

LEO (July 23 – Aug 22) If a new romance comes your way, it just might be the one that you have been waiting for. There is only one way to find out – get out there and see what happens.

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20) Your feelings of depression that you have been experiencing the past few days will quickly pass now. You have a great deal of excitement on the way – mainly from a sum of money that could be an unexpected inheritance.

VIRGO (Aug 23 – Sept 22) Much activity is indicated in all forms at this time. Take your time in making decisions and double check all business matters. Your general chart looks extremely good right now.

GEMINI (May 2 – June 20) You seem to be always willing to put a lot of effort into maintaining harmony with the people around you. Remember do not overdo this effort. If you keep putting your best foot forward without getting some positive results, you will eventually get resentful. In every relationship there has to be a fair amount of give and take or things just will not work out.

LIBRA (Sept 23 – Oct 22) This will be a tricky week for you because there are complicated influences at work around your personal life. Take it easy in the romance department – you could fall head over heels in love. The question is, is this person the right one for you? Be cautious.

CANCER (June 21 – July 22) Some great gain is coming if you can just face the facts and not allow yourself to become bogged down with burdensome details. Starting in the next month or so things will definitely be looking up for Cancer.

SCORPIO (Oct 23 – Nov 21) A friend that you have not encountered for some time will be in your life the next short while. Enjoy the relaxation that is coming your way with the presence of this person. You will be very relaxed if you allow it to happen.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 – Dec 21) This coming week try to avoid getting into an argument regarding money matters. In fact, this would be a poor time to try and do any refinancing of any kind. CAPRICORN (Dec 22 – Jan 19) Younger people may be quite involved in your activities during the next week. You can be a leader if you will only follow the golden rule. A business trip is indicated. AQUARIUS (Jan 20 – Feb 18) Nothing of earth-shattering importance will happen this week, but that may be just as well. You may even consider getting a physic reading to add to your vision of the future. PISCES (Feb 19 – March 20) Pretty nearly anything you turn your hand too now will work out well. You may not see great financial gains but you can be sure that they are coming later. Be precise in all business deals.

The story of Charles Hall South Park Salt Works By Linda Jones The South Park Salt Works complex was built in 1866, or perhaps even earlier. Historian LeRoy Hafen stated this “factory” was Colorado Territory’s second manufacturing plant. (The first was a cannon foundry in Denver.) Salt in 1866 was frightfully expensive, selling for $1 a pound. Crofutt points out in his Gripsack Guide of Colorado (1881) that all salt used in the Territory had to be freighted in wagons from the Missouri River, 700 miles to the east, at a cost for freight alone of up to 20 cents a pound. The South Park Salt Works were not far from the original wagon road over Trout Creek Pass between South Park and Buena Vista. Charles L. Hall discovered the salty spring, built the factory there and ordered 18 huge cast-iron evaporating kettles in which to boil the salty water until only the valuable salt remained. The kettles were three inches thick, 16 – 18 inches deep and 40 inches across; they each cost $1,500 for a total of $27,000, a monumental sum in those days. He made his first shipment of salt to Denver in 1866; his customers were mostly mines and smelters, which used salt in roasting metallic

ores, and ranchmen. Because of the weakness of the brine, the salt works only produced commercially until April 1868. Hall and his family are a fascinating part of Colorado history with a thread continuing to popular culture in the 21st century. Hall was born in New York in 1835, moved to Iowa with his family as a boy and studied law at Iowa College before immigrating in 1859 to what was then western Kansas. He first ranched on Ralston Creek, then prospected in California Gulch, near the later town of Leadville, and in 1861 moved on to the San Juan Mountains to prospect. Here his life nearly ended. In February 1861, Hall and two companions, Harris and O’Neill, were climbing out of Baker’s Park (now Silverton) and realized they were lost when they encountered the Lake Fork of the Gunnison. All their provisions were already gone and they struggled through the deep snow for six days, surviving only on their boiled boot-tops, flour sacks, buckskin breeches, a buffalo robe and a colony of ants they found. One night Hall overheard the other two planning to kill him for food and foiled them by sleeping far away from his

bedroll. They did indeed attempt to murder him that night and they deserted him the next day, but Harris came back later, saying he was afraid of being eaten by O’Neill. Hall and Harris stumbled on for days, in the end crawling on hands and knees about a mile a day. At last they reached a large party of prospectors led by Ben Eaton (later a governor of Colorado). The two had been without real food for 15 days, and when he was rescued, Hall weighed only 48 pounds; normally he weighed 135. Fortune smiled on Hall finally. A 21-year-old widow with the Eaton party nursed him back to health. Mary Melissa Nye and her two children had been deserted by her husband. While Hall was recuperating in Baker’s Park under the ministrations of Mary, she assembled a U.S. flag (1861) on July 4, the first known American flag to fly in the San Juans. A secessionist tore it down, but later Kit Carson brought it back to her. In 1862, Mary and Hall married and together had three children. After his marriage, Hall returned to California Gulch to prospect and in his travels discovered the salt-water spring; he homesteaded the land around the salt spring

and a nearby fresh spring and called his ranch the Salt Works Ranch. Here he and Mary hosted many of the early leaders of Colorado. Notables they entertained included Bayard Taylor, William Byers, Wolf Londoner, Father John Dyer and his son Judge Elias Dyer, Vice-President Schuyler Colfax, Gov. Bross of Illinois, Gov. Hunt of Colorado, Samuel Bowles, F. V. Hayden, General and Mrs. William Jackson Palmer and all their entourages. Hall was twice elected from Park County to the Territorial Legislature and later elected to the state legislature from Lake County. During the Leadville boom in 1878, Hall became a contractor, grading the streets of the fast-growing town. Along with William Bush and Horace Tabor, he organized a company to install gas lights in Leadville and Hall himself built the gas works and installed the mains. Later he allied with the Pueblo Gas & Electric Company, serving as a director. He joined Dennis Sullivan and others in the Mylo group of mines in the Ten Mile District and owned an interest in the famous Sixth Street Shaft in Leadville and in the Rose Group in Ouray. In 1892, he

South Park was the second location of a manufacturing plant in Colorado Territory, South Park Salt Works, which was built in 1866.

prospected in Arizona and discovered the Mammoth Mine, taking $800,000 in minerals from it. When he died in Denver on Aug. 15, 1907, he owned about 40 mines in Colorado and New Mexico. The Halls’ three children were Minnie B., Charles A. and Mildred Nettie. Minnie B. married William Perry of Denver on Sept. 7, 1887 and their daughter was named Antoinette Perry. Tony acted, directed and produced plays on Broadway and she co-founded the American Theatre Wing. The annual Tony award, theater’s equivalent of the Oscars, the Grammy and the Emmy awards, is named for Antoinette Perry and is presented every year for “excellence in the Broadway theatre.” In her old age Mary became both blind and lame, and Minnie B. accompanied her mother to visit a Christian Science practitioner in New York. She cured Mary, and mother and daughter devoted themselves to establishing the Christian Science religion in the state; the first Christian Science service in Colorado was held in their home at 412 Broadway in 1885.

SPOTLIGHT ON BUSINESS_____________________________________

The Window Doctor is in By Peter Jones After 30 years in the cutthroat window business, it is not hard for Joe Brever to sum up the nature of the highly competitive glass-wielding industry. “If you ever saw the movie Tin Men, it’s like that,” Brever said with a laugh. In that 1987 comedy, two aluminum-siding salesmen stoop to new lows in their no-holdsbarred battle for vulnerable customers (and the eventual atten-

tion of one of their wives). While Brever may not have witnessed the scurrilous likes of Danny DeVito, he has seen his fair share of smooth-talking glass men. “I see the way our competition runs their business and I wasn’t too thrilled by it,” the entrepreneur said. “It sounds kind of corny, but we give people a very good product at a very good price. It’s not like we’re going out and undercutting people. We’re just trying to help

people who are out working their butts off every day.” That is spirit in which Brever and his son, Chris, hung up their shingle as Window Doctor of Colorado two years, offering affordable no-nonsense window replacement – a sort of prescription for the rising cost of window care. While the father is the technical whiz of the family, the son is a business major and attorney. “He does the business side of it and I do all the grunt side of it,”

Each glass is custom-cut and constructed in vinyl, fiberglass or wood and all are built with energy efficiency in mind. The window’s ProSolar Low E glass with argon gas boasts high-performance options that include a triple-pane insulating unit. Photo courtesy of Window Doctor

Brever said. “Once we get our job done, we get a lot of business by word of mouth. We’ve done very well. We’ve been blessed.” Window Doctor bypasses competitors’ offers of low-priced entry-level windows in favor of high-quality Simonton windows, which the company essentially sells at cost in concert with installation. It is a simple formula that Brever says is both upfront and cost-effective for homeowners. “We install a premium window and try to give a very good price. I’ve seen a lot of companies out there charge close to $1,000 for the same window we could put in for $500 or $550,” Brever said. Simonton’s Energy Star windows have been ranked “Highest in Customer Satisfaction” four years in a row by J.D. Power and Associates. Each glass is custom-cut and constructed in vinyl, fiberglass or wood and all are built with energy efficiency in mind. The window’s ProSolar Low E glass with argon gas boasts high-performance options that include a triple-pane insulating unit. “It cools in the summer, and in the wintertime as the heat hits the glass on the interior it actually reflects it back into the room,” Brever said. Replaced materials are recycled whenever possible, and if foreign objects come crashing through the new window, no worries with the lifetime war-

It’s part of the deal. No questions asked,” Brever said. Despite the firm’s name, Window Doctor can also work its medicine on an assortment of doors and screens and can even install hard-to-find storm windows on older homes for those who do not want to lose their historic window frames. Window Doctor offers a nointerest six-month payment plan through PayPal. Average turnaround time on work is two weeks. After three decades in the business, Brever remains excited about the window business, in part because of the ever-increasing quality of the products he sells. “When vinyl windows first came out, I wouldn’t have put them on a doghouse, but they’ve come a long way. The product is a lot nicer than it’s ever been,” he said.

South metro cities score in national surveys Centennial, Littleton make mark in pay equity and sociability

By Peter Jones Six is the lucky number for two south metro cities that have made the grade in income equality and friendliness, respectively. Centennial ranks as the sixth most “equal” among large communities in the United States when it comes to household income, while Littleton is “golden” when it comes to sociability, as the nation’s sixth friendliest small city. According to consumer-trends website NerdWallet, Centennial’s above-average income equality was in comparison to more than 300 surveyed cities that have populations of at least 100,000. [Centennial’s official population is little more than 100,000.] NerdWallet compared and contrasted the median household incomes of those cities’ top and bottom 20 percent. The data came in the context of the growing politics of income disparity. Former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan has called the income gap the most dangerous trend in the country. The Brookings Institution recently published a report that said large cities are generally more unequal than others. “To take a different scope on this topic, we crunched the numbers to find the cities with the most income equality,” NerdWallet wrote. “… The lower the ratio, then the more equal the place.” Between 2007 and 2012, the average household income of the lowest-earning 20 percent of the U.S population decreased by 3.7 percent to $11,797, while that of

A graphic from NerdWallet lists Centennial as the sixth greatest city for income parity.

the highest-earning 20 percent increased by more than 4 percent to $181,455. Although the space between rich and poor continues to widen, Centennial’s comparatively narrow income gap translates to a higher quality of life, according to NerdWallet. The median household income in Centennial is $88,598. By comparison, the mean annual income of the lowest-earning 20 percent of households is $29,958, while the highest-earning 20 percent earn $241,166 per year. Centennial was not the only metro Denver city to make NerdWallet’s list. Thornton was the second best city for income equality, followed by West Jordon, Utah, which took the highest spot. Other Colorado communities included

Highlands Ranch [11], Westminster [28] and Aurora [46]. While Centennial may be the relative tops in lifestyle parity, its neighbor to the west has received a similar ranking on the cordiality scale. Movoto, a real-estate blog, has deemed Littleton the sixthfriendliest small city in the United States, among those with populations of fewer than 50,000. “At 43,775 people, Littleton is the smallest small city in our top 10, but it was a big deal during the Pike’s Peak Gold Rush of the 1800s. Today, the community still has plenty of gold … in the form of friendliness,” Movoto writes. The site considered such factors as charitable giving to rate the cities’ “friendliness,” but also made note of more subjectively

important criteria like the number of flower and gift stores, farmers’ markets, religious institutions and even bars (the more, the merrier, according Movoto’s judgment). “Unfortunately, we couldn’t include some other criteria we initially wanted, like the number of high-fives per capita or cups of sugar given to neighbors,” the site says. Researchers paid particular attention to Littleton’s annual violent-crime rate of 130 incidents per 100,000 residents, making it the least violent city in the Top 10. Littleton also fared well for flowers and gift shops [sixth place] and greeting card shops [11th], and had a remarkable 14,343 Facebook Likes, an impressive number for such a small city, according to

Movoto. The only other Colorado community to make the list was Parker at No. 22. The friendliest city was San Luis Obispo, Calif. These recent surveys were not the first time Centennial and Littleton have scored well on national and state assessments. Last year, NerdWallet called Centennial one of the best places in the state for job seekers. The city also made Money magazine’s list of the 100 Best Places to Live in the United States. Centennial has consistently been named the Colorado city with the lowest crime rate. Last year, NerdWallet deemed Littleton one of the best Colorado communities for young families, despite the city’s want of available housing stock.
