A Relay for Life – for real Cancer fundraiser has personal connection for local man

W

By Peter Jones hen Jesse LaNunziata attends Relay for Life of Centennial this weekend, the decidedly fun-filled cancer benefit will mean much more than a run through the park. “I do get very emotional about it,” the 32-year-old brain-cancer survivor said. “It makes me proud to be a part of a team that’s helping.” Last year, LaNunziata was a runner on an actual team that completed in the 13-hour overnight relay event in support of the American Cancer Society. This year, the Centennial Public Works contractor is part of the organizational team that is putting the entire event together. “It’s a fantastic event because it brings awareness and raises money,” he said. “It’s a lot of fun. There’s going to be live music and tons of people just hanging out having a good time.” The fundraiser on the track and field at Newton Middle School is one of more than 5,000 Relay for Life all-night events that are held across the United States every year. “It’s been described as a slumber party with your entire commu-

nity,” said Amanda Doubet, a local spokeswoman for the American Cancer Society. “Teams of friends, family or co-workers get together and set up camp. Somebody from each team should be walking the track throughout the entire event.” Centennial’s event kicks off the summer – literally – on the summer solstice of Friday, June 21, at 6 p.m. The relay takes its final lap the next morning around 7 a.m. In between will be a range of live music, enter-

tainment, food and more as Centennial stages one of its largest annual fundraisers. Although team registration has been open for months, Doubet says walk-in registrations will be welcome on Friday afternoon. For LaNunziata, the decision to get involved was highly personal. At age 15, he was sent to a Pennsylvania hospital after his mother became concerned about his weight – or lack thereof. “Within five minutes, they told me I had brain cancer,” he said. “It was a bit dramatic at 15 years old.” The teenager underwent almost immediate surgery to remove the cancer before enduring three months of grueling radiation treatments. “After 12 weeks, they told me I was cured. I basically cried for four hours and then got on the phone and called everyone I knew. Luckily, the

tumor shrunk and it went into remission, and ever since then I haven’t had any problems,” LaNunziata said. That’s not to say the cancer survivor has had no lingering aftereffects. The brain surgery caused optical nerve damage, which triggered double vision. He has also had to undergo hormone-replacement surgery and treatments for related diabetes. Relay for Life is designed to help people like LaNunziata. The American Cancer Society uses the funds to invest in groundbreaking research in every type of cancer and to provide free information and services to cancer patients and caregivers.

Cherry Hills takes stance on marijuana use, bans retail shops

I

By Jan Wondra n the second and final reading of an amendment to its municipal code addressing personal use and regulation of marijuana and marijuana accessories, the Cherry Hills Village City Council unanimously agreed to ban any retail sales of marijuana or marijuana accessories and to proceed with a slightly amended version of Council Bill 4, Series 2013. City Council reviewed and approved the bill on first reading at its Feb. 19 meeting. Council delayed the final read of its municipal code to await the Colorado legislature’s official definition of the words “openly and publicly” as written in Amendment 64, regarding what constitutes personal use. The amendment, which was approved by Colorado voters in the November 2012 election, legalized the personal possession and use of one ounce or less of marijuana. While other municipalities forged ahead, Cherry Hills maintained a quiet approach, wishing to comply with state law, while aware that it flies in the face of the federal law, which makes possession and consumption of any amount of marijuana illegal.

The wording of the Cherry Hills Village bill also addresses the hot topic of retail shops, which by state law, could sell one ounce or less of marijuana, as well as accessories to consume marijuana. “While we conform to Amendment 64, without the Colorado General Assembly weighing in on the definition of what is ‘open and public’ consumption,” said City Attorney Linda Michow, “we have adjusted our original definition from consumption that is ‘perceptible’ to ‘observable.’ We may need to come back to this at some point, once there is a state definition of what ‘open and public’ means and if it is on public property or in view. Once they designate an official definition, we can open this discussion again.” Mayor Pro Tem Russell Stewart said, “At this point, I see open and public as in the public, and openly is where someone can see you. Is eating brownies publicly different from smoking?” Police Chief Michelle Tovrea said, “Our municipal police department needs some direction. Clarity is needed, so that officers know how to respond to calls.”

While Council Bill 4 addresses retail marijuana sales, the issue of marijuana clubs is not considered an issue because the Village has little retail business within its borders. “I’m not in favor of addressing something that doesn’t exist here,” said Stewart. City Council will take up the matter of regulating home cultivation, which raises the issues of fire hazards from high electrical use, in a later bill.

Municipal zoning public hearing and passage

The June 4 City Council meeting included a public hearing on adjustments of Cherry Hills Village minimum zoning requirements. The bill clarifies that the city does not interpret or implement private covenants or deed restrictions as part of enforcing the city’s zoning standards. While a private contract or covenant might specify a standard higher than the city enforces, for building materials or site space, the bill clarifies that it is not the City of Cherry Hills Village’s job to enforce those standards that exceed its own. Following the short public

hearing, where no public comments were made, the bill was unanimously passed by City Council.

Municipal ordinance violation fees

City Council dealt for the second and final time with Council Bill 9, unanimously passing the measure, which adjusts the city’s maximum municipal fines to match the levels now allowed by Colorado state law, which moved form a maximum of $1,000 to $2,650. The new state law, which from now on will peg the maximum allowable municipal fine levels to the Consumer Price Index, is intended to allow greater flexibility for municipal judges to deal with growing problems like overweight truck limits and providing of alcohol to underage minors. Questions did arise over exactly how many fines might go up. At this point, Cherry Hills municipal court has levied few fines at the old $1,000 maximum. “This new freedom might mean that our court might begin to levy fines for serious offense at the old maximum levels,” said Mayor Doug Tisdale.

New Walmart Neighborhood Market matching competitors’ prices By Tom Barry These days, it’s all about convenience for grocery shopping. As a result, Walmart is in the process of opening smaller stores where you can pick up your groceries, prescriptions and some hard goods and be in and out quickly. In this southwest Denver metro store near the Littleton city limits, Walmart has opened its ninth Neighborhood Market in Colorado, the fifth in the Denver area and second in the Littleton area, only 3 miles away. The new store at 8196 W. Bowles Ave. at South Wadsworth Boulevard staged a colorful grand opening event June 12 that was tailored to the community. Within a 3-mile stretch and several minutes of the new Neighborhood Market, there are two King Soopers, a Safeway, a Sprouts, a Whole Foods Market, a Sam’s Club and a Costco. The trend is to make grocery shopping quicker and easier without

having to contend with a massive parking lot and considerable lines at a larger store, let alone a superstore or a warehouse retailer. Walmart has been running print and broadcast ads extensively extolling lower prices. King Soopers has just begun countering with competing ads.

Matching prices

Jennifer Plant, the general manager of the Walmart Neighborhood Market, began working for Walmart when she was 16 years old. Her husband manages another area Walmart store. Plant, in her first job as manager, ran the Neighborhood Market at Bowles Avenue and Platte Canyon for the last year before the recent promotion. “I found my favorite customer in a pre-grand opening event for area residents that included the adjacent Concordia senior-living neighborhood off the lake,” said Plant who is constantly walking the aisles asking customers if she can assist them in

finding any item. “He [the new favorite customer] was so funny and full of life and said he would come over here and speed up and down the aisles in his electric wheelchair.” This senior is a youthful 99 years old and he requested he have his 100th birthday at the new Neighborhood Market for friends and family and the Walmart staff. Plant obliged and had it approved by the state’s executive director of Neighborhood Markets. The celebration is on. Walmart Neighborhood Market employs around 110 staff working full and part time and is open 24 hours a day. The market was a former Ultimate Electronics store that went through two bankruptcies and finally liquidated and closed in 2011. The Neighborhood Market has 38,000 square feet and offers a full line of groceries, a pharmacy, along with health and beauty products, household goods, and pet products and supplies. Walmart Neighborhood Markets proclaims they will match prices of any grocery or pharmacy, including Sam’s Club, King Soopers and Costco. Walmart’s slogan is “Save money, Live better.”

General Manager Jennifer Plant stands with customers Morgan and Aribella, 5, at the opening of the new Littleton Neighborhood Market June 12.

Community participation

Lou Fohn, owner of the nearby Columbine Tree Farm, had been walking around the lake at Clement Park when he saw all the activity around the new Walmart Neighborhood Market. He stopped in to purchase fruit before work.

The Columbine High School Jazz Band struck up the music to begin the event at 7:30 a.m., as customers gathered, along with employees, friends and Walmart executives from other area stores. The Columbine High cheerleaders performed two cheers for the audience. The new Neighborhood Market presented $7,500 in checks to support area and state organizations including: the Columbine High band and cheerleaders, Boy Scout Troop 579, the Foothills Foundation, the Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership group and Operation Homefront’s Rocky Mountain Chapter in

Welcome to Big Sky Country

THE PASSIONATE TRAVELER

By Andrea Shpall I went road tripping again and covered 2,500 miles in nine nights, slept in six different hotels and no speeding tickets. I was able to combine two things I love best about traveling, the ability to throw my stuff in the car with no baggage limitations or an extra charge for each bag I packed, as well as exploring popular tourist spots in the off-season. My nephew’s college graduation in Missoula, Mont., allowed the perfect timing for this recent road trip and an excuse to explore some of our glorious National Parks. This was our first time to explore Yellowstone and Montana. Thank you Max for this opportunity and welcome to the grown-up world as you begin your newly stressful job in Los Angeles.

Some of my general impressions of Montana:

• It is a very big state and you need to drive a lot to get anywhere. • There are not a lot of people so you really feel you are all alone in Big Sky country.

• In the cities we visited we felt that it was 20 years behind Denver and that was a good thing. It was not hectic, expensive or over crowded. And, best of all, we felt that in the cities of Missoula, Bozeman and Billings, everything was so close that we could walk everywhere. • Our group kept fantasizing about spending a summer month or even the entire summer in the Missoula area. • Hiking and fly-fishing was available everywhere - we saw road turn-offs every direction for designated public fishing. • In Montana you want to take your time to find your favorite hiking trails and fishing spots and then you can fantasize about returning and revisiting those special spots you discovered. Montana is all about the outdoors and its glorious scenery, whether it be day trips from Missoula or Bozeman or visiting a national park as you travel from point A to point B. Bison National Reserve and Glacier National Park are a must. Wildlife is abundant and you will see bison, antelope and even a grizzly roaming freely. It is always a treat to take the time to explore and discover more of our own vast country. I promise you will not be disappointed. It is all about the experience.

Politics

Deputy announces run for AG Coffman is U.S. representative’s wife

I

By Peter Jones f Cynthia Coffman were to win the Republican nomination for Colorado attorney general next year, she and her husband Mike would constitute a rare wife-husband power couple – at least on the ballot for the 6th Congressional District, which Rep. Mike Coffman has represented since 2009. Cynthia Coffman, the state’s deputy attorney general, announced last week she would seek the office of her boss, Attorney General John Suthers, who will be subject to term limits when he completes his third term in January 2015. Although Deputy Coffman, 51, has long been active at the intersection of law and politics, she has also been known as a loyal spouse to her husband, who worked in both houses of the state legislature and as Colorado’s treasurer and secretary of state before serving three terms in Congress. “I’ve thought all my life that I would run for office eventually,” Coffman said of her own first-time political ambitions. “I’ve lived vicariously through Mike. It’s always been a little bit hard not to be the one running and making the decisions. Now I get to take total responsibility and blame for whatever I do.” While Coffman makes no bones about the political road ahead, she stresses that the Colorado Department of Law is where her electoral ambitions start and end. “This is the job I’ve always wanted,” she said. “I don’t see myself ever doing Washington, D.C. Thank goodness Mike likes it – and he’s really good at it. But I want to be in Colorado representing the people here. I know what goes into running a campaign and running a public office and being reportable to the people once elected. It’s a very sobering thing to do, honestly.” Although rumors have swirled of possible entries into the openseat attorney general’s race, at press time Coffman was the only Republican to make a formal campaign announcement. Former Adams County District Attorney Don Quick is the lone official contender for the Democratic nod.

Opening arguments

Coffman, an Aurora resident appointed as Suthers’s deputy in 2005, would strive to bring new emphasis to the office’s underplayed roles in consumer protection and information services. For example, she would retool the office website to emphasize such practical information as product recalls, scam protection and praise for other businesses that have earned positive notice. “What people would see immediately is outreach to consumers,” she said. “I want to have someone

I’ve lived vicariously through Mike. It’s always been a little bit hard not to be the one running and making the decisions. Now I get to take total responsibility and blame for whatever I do. Cynthia Coffman in consumer protection who’s in charge of nothing but getting information out to the community. [Suthers] runs an incredibly solid law firm and I wouldn’t take anything away from that, but I think the next step is making people aware of how we can help them.” That’s not to say Coffman would shy away from controversy. Her June 12 campaign announcement mentioned President Obama by name and emphasized what she called the federal government’s overstepping of the U.S. Constitution’s 10th Amendment, which reserves unstated government powers to the states. In 2010, Suthers joined an unsuccessful challenge to parts of the Affordable Care Act. The U.S. Supreme Court ultimately upheld most of Obama’s signature reform, including the mandate that all U.S. citizens purchase health insurance. Coffman, who backed Suthers’s controversial decision to join the lawsuit with 25 other state attorneys general, says she would be unafraid to take similar positions, but she stresses what she considers the nonpartisan nature of defending against federal intrusions. Many expect such conflicts to rise again in the context of Colorado’s 2012 legalization of marijuana, which the attorney general’s office has said it would respect, despite stated opposition to legalization by the office’s Republican leadership. “The attorney general looks at things from a legal perspective, whether I agree with it personally or not,” Coffman said. “I will represent the people of the state and the laws that we pass as vigorously as I can. I will not let my personal beliefs rule the day.” On another controversial front, Coffman has joined the chorus of criticism of Gov. John Hickenlooper’s recent decision to grant convicted killer Nathan Dunlap a tenuous reprieve from the death penalty. “The governor’s indecision – I won’t call it a decision – was the worst insult he could have inflicted on the people of Colorado,” Coffman said, noting her office’s extensive involvement in the state’s arduous death-penalty legal process.

The road to public office

Born in Missouri, Coffman earned her law degree at Georgia State University in Atlanta. She began her legal career in 1993 at the Georgia attorney general’s office. Three years later, she was hired as a lawyer for the Olympic games in Atlanta. She made the move to Colorado a year later after coming here on a whim. “Once I was here, that was it. I said, I’m staying,” she said. “I didn’t have a job, but I went back to Georgia, loaded up a Ryder truck and drove it cross-country.” While working for the research office of the nonpartisan Legislative Council at the state Capitol, she would often run into thenstate Sen. Mike Coffman in the hallways. Although the legislator was persistent in his interest, the council had strict rules against its employees fraternizing with partisan lawmakers. “I liked him enough that I went out and looked for another job and went into private practice,” the future Mrs. Coffman said with a laugh. She worked for the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment before she was offered a job by then-Gov. Bill Owens as his chief legal counsel. She left that office when Suthers tapped her for the deputy position. In 2012, Coffman was named Best Public Sector Lawyer by Law Week Colorado. It remains unclear which Republicans may join Coffman in the primary. House Minority Leader Mark Waller of Colorado Springs and Weld County District Attorney Ken Buck are among the names mentioned most frequently. Possible Democratic opponents besides Quick include Boulder County District Attorney Stan Garnett and state Senate Majority Leader Morgan Carroll of Aurora. If Carroll, an outspoken Democrat on a range of issues, were to face off with Coffman, Colorado would surely see its second-ever woman as attorney general. “I think Morgan and Cynthia would be a fun race for people to watch,” Coffman said.

June is a popular time for weddings KINDLING

By Robert Sweeney

Congrats to our former intern and his soon-tobe wife

June is usually a popular

month for folks to get married. Couples that believe in marriage of one nature or another come together and wed where the single ingredient must be love. One of our former Villager interns Bobby Reginelli is taking the plunge this weekend with his betrothed longtime friend Dr. Britt Severson. These two have traveled the back roads of Latin America and have kindled their friendship through hunger, cold, rain, and no doubt hard beds and sore feet. Denver parents Bob and Kathleen Reginelli have a houseful of boys on Humbolt Street next to Cheesman Park in a wonderful turn-of-the-century mansion with

four floors and a historic dance floor in the basement. The dining room is finished with century old cut glass and the main floor has a tea room fit for a queen. The boys attended Rick’s School on the University of Denver campus for gifted and talented students. Bobby went on to the University of Colorado-Boulder where he majored in Journalism that included a stint at The Villager learning about the real world of writing and reporting for a community newspaper. These are the newspapers that are surviving and flourishing in their local hometown environments where people still care about one another, the schools and events.

We’ve urged Bobby to write some books, still in his 20s, he’s accomplished more and had more experiences than most people have experienced in a lifetime. He has lively partner in Britt, who is doing her residency to complete her medical training. She will soothe aches and pains and together they will have more exciting experiences somewhere in this world together. The youth of America are an exciting bunch and moving far ahead of our generation in thought and deed. What a fine column they will write together in love.

Putting the ‘Security’ back in ‘Social’ Former official urges boomers to get smart about retirement

What I really love about what I’m doing is I’m talking to my own generation because we really can’t believe we’ve reached this age. Oh my gosh, it’s the biggest shock.

W By Peter Jones

hen it comes to Social Security, Elaine Simmons puts her mouth where the money is. After a man once told her of his family’s history of brothers, fathers and grandfathers with short lifespans, he was sure Simmons would agree that he is someone – perhaps that arguably rare case of someone – who should take a reduced payment at age 62. He would not live much past that age anyway, the man reasoned. “But what about the women on your wife’s side of the family?” Simmons retorted. “They never die,” the man said without a note of irony. Little known or considered by the man was the fact that his surviving wife would be able to collect – at 100 percent, no less – on his own Social Security benefit for many years after his death. “If I were married to you, I would kill you before you got to the Social Security office,” Simmons said with a laugh, when recounting the story. To hear the former government bureaucrat tell it, too many couples assume that a husband and wife should decide individually when to start taking their own benefit without consideration of the big picture. “Remember the investment aspect?” she said. “When [else] can we have a sum of money that we can guarantee in four years is 32 percent more – not just for the rest of our life, but the rest of the life of our surviving spouse?” After 35 years of working in virtually every aspect of the federal government program, Simmons has heard it all, and she remains convinced that almost everyone who is at all financially able to do so should

—Elaine Simmons, baby boomer & former Social Security official

Former Social Security official Elaine lays it on the line for businesspeople last week at Maggiano’s Little Italy: “When [else] can we have a sum of money that we can guarantee in four years is 32 percent more – not just for the rest of our life, but the rest of the life of our surviving spouse?”

wait until age 66-70 to begin collecting on the social-insurance program, thus avoiding what would be a permanently reduced payout. The no-nonsense Texan made her case for smarter Social Security investment on June 13 at a morning seminar presented by Lone Tree-based Financial Foundation Group. Although the room of mostly Denver Tech Center businesspeople had just enjoyed a hearty breakfast at Maggiano’s Little Italy, the group was about to get a full serving of plainspoken reality that was both sobering and motivating for the aging baby boomers. “What I really love about what I’m doing is I’m talking to my own generation because

we really can’t believe we’ve reached this age,” Simmons said. “Oh my gosh, it’s the biggest shock.” To hear Simmons tell it, the first thing to remember is that Social Security is an investment, no matter what its critics or supporters want to call it. “Anytime you put money aside and you’re the one who chooses when to draw down on it, that’s the definition of investment, isn’t it?” she asked.

That’s why aging Americans should be strategic in factoring Social Security into their overall retirement plan, especially since workers will now spend as much as 30 percent of their lives in retirement. When people died younger, taking the reduced benefit might have made more sense, Simmons said. “I don’t know about you, but in 10 to 12 years I’m just going to be gliding into retirement. I’m not going to be half dead,” she said. According to Simmons, there are a myriad of options for individuals and couples who want to maximize Social Security well into their 80s and 90s. For example, many people do not realize that they can collect on the accounts of their older ex-spouses, as long as the couple was married for at least 10 years. Doing so might potentially make it easier to delay collecting on one’s own individual account. Simmons said it makes sense, even for warring exes, to be open about what they’re doing – and even for one ex to encourage the other to take advantage of the opportunity. “If you can get him to delay his benefits to age 70, guess what we’ve done for the di-

vorced widow’s benefit for you?” Simmons said. For more information, visit www.socialsecuritybyelaine. com.

Cherry Hills Village seeing brown at public safety facility Denver Water denies additional watering request for ‘new’ sod

By Tom Barry Last January, Cherry Hills Village staged a grand opening of its new Joint Public Safety building on East Quincy Avenue. This new $6 million facility includes the city’s police department and a South Metro Fire Rescue station. Adolfson and Peterson Construction built this facility with all the essential elements. The company hired a subcontractor to plant a new lawn during the end of October. The newly-planted

sod went into hibernation shortly after being laid, enduring numerous snowstorms and freezing this winter and early spring. This sod is now in poor shape, as most of it has died or is dying and has brownish tint. Some of the sod may survive. The construction company requested an exemption to allow for additional watering from Denver Water. Their request was denied. “We had some irrigation issues and it was not being watered properly and we are trying to water it,” said Brad Dean, a construction supervisor with Adolfson and Peterson. “If it does not

rebound, we will replace the sod as it is under warranty. Colorado is a fickle place to do landscaping in my own opinion.” Dean hopes the lawn rebounds, as a final decision will be made this week as to what to do about the sod issue.

Greenwood Village weighs Village Greens water tap solutions

By Jan Wondra Changes in how the Denver Water Board intends to bill Cherry Creek State Park for its water use are looming over Greenwood Village’s water and will precipitate a change in the water tap that provides water to Village Greens North Park, at the western edge of the Dam Road over the Cherry Creek Reservoir. In the study session preceding its June 3 council meeting, City Engineer Derek Slack walked the council through the options to replace the existing tap, which feeds off the four-inch line that provided potable water to Cherry Creek State Park and pays the state $7,000 per year for water access. The city is looking at a $500,000 budget item to adjust potable water taps, re-establishing potable water taps to its park. Historically, some 45 percent of the water for Village Greens comes from this tap, and the agreement under which this water flowed to the park expired on Dec. 31, 2011. The park’s remaining water usage, 65 percent, is served by a groundwater well on site and covers the north side of the park. What had been considered a simple matter of renewing the contract with the Cherry Creek

Water District that manages the state park’s water contract, has become something else entirely. When the contract expired, the city was informed by Denver Water and the CCWD that this tap is now considered illegal per their guidelines. Their request: reestablish a connection with Denver Water with a water tap outside this line. To understand the situation, the history of the parks has to be taken into account. In 1984, when Greenwood Village’s Village Greens Park was created, there appears to have been a limit on how many main water taps were allowed by Denver Water. This would have prevented the city from tapping directly to Denver Water’s main line. So the city made an agreement with Cherry Creek State Park to create an adjunct tap off the larger line to the park. This contract, which had been in existence since the creation of the park, originally made use of this under-utilized water line. Not only would Denver Water require that a regulation four-inch tap be created off the main line, but it now requires that an additional two-inch tap be created off that line to supply a unique water supply to the rest, separate from the booster pumps that supply water to irrigate the park’s south sports fields and

landscaping areas. “Some of the work will actually need to occur outside the city’s core boundary,” said Slack. “We’ve got to disconnect from the Cherry Creek State Park line and at the same time build the tap farther west than the existing tap. “We’re going to have to excavate some four one-half to five feet down, and we’ve tried to set a route with the least amount of exposure on Union. Our design plan has to be approved by the Denver Water Review Board first. But our goal is, we want to get this done prior to the school start.” The water line runs under the Cherry Creek High School east parking lots into Cherry Creek State Park. This means that the construction work area will cross Union Avenue into the park, with a significant amount of the work to occur in the CCHS parking lot and in crossing Union. There is, of course, some urgency to completing this work over the summer. With the high school on summer break, summer construction offers the least amount of disruption to school operations. Those who regularly cross into the Denver Tech Center to work, shop or dine, will need to take this necessary construction into account and plan their routes accordingly.

June 15 commemorates the affirmation, 798 years ago, of our fundamental rights. Magna Carta, the Great Charter, confirmed “for us and our heirs in perpetuity” that the government, even the king himself, must honor citizens’ rights and operate within law and custom. Despite the fashion to demean Magna Carta, the Great Charter clearly acknowledges the rights of “all free men.” Here are

a few of the 63 clauses. No tax may be levied…without general consent. No free man shall be seized or imprisoned or stripped of his rights or possessions or…deprived of his standing in any other way, nor will we proceed with force against him…, except by the lawful judgment of his equals or by the law of the land. To no one will we deny or delay right or justice.

comes after the recent and sudden departures of Littleton’s last two staff city attorneys. In February, Kirsten Crawford resigned less than two weeks after being placed on an unexplained paid administrative leave. Crawford was appointed in March 2012, six months after the council had fired her predecessor, Suzanne Staiert, without official explanation. In connection to her exit, Staiert was paid a $143,000 settlement that forestalled future legal claims connected to the former city attorney’s sexual-harassment complaint against a municipal judge. Such payouts would be unlikely if a similar situation occurred with a contracted attorney, Brinkman said.

Home-rule anniversary a time for celebration

By Cathy Noon This month, Centennial celebrates its fifth year as a home-rule city. It’s important for us to take a moment to reflect on our “wooden” anniversary and recognize that home rule has been good for the citizens of Centennial. In November 2007, the voters in Centennial voted to form a home-rule Charter Commission and elected 21 charter commissioners to write the Charter. I was lucky enough to be one of those who was elected, and then to be elected by my fellow commissioners to chair the Commission. It was an honor to serve in this role and taught me so much about the power of listening and of building consensus. Colorado law only allows 120 days to write a charter, and then the charter must be approved by the voters. Our charter commissioners were a dedicated group who came together to research and debate how our city should be governed. During the winter of 2008, we had meetings late into the night and made sure that everyone’s voice was heard. We had public meetings and developed a wiki website (a newfangled idea at the time) to enable us to work together in a public forum outside of the meetings. We learned from other cities’ charters and looked to guiding principles of democracy and limited government. We embraced the values of self-determination and accountable government that Centennial had adopted when it formed as a city in 2001. And then we took our Charter to the people of Centennial and persuaded them to vote to take the next

The elected 21-member Centennial Charter Commission drafted the city’s charter, which was later approved by voters five years ago this month. Chair Cathy Noon, bottom left, was elected the city’s mayor in 2010. Photo courtesy of City of Centennial steps in self-government and local control by approving the Charter. On June 10, 2008, the citizens of Centennial voted overwhelmingly to approve the home-rule Charter. And we commissioners finally got to rest … for a little while. You may see all of this as politics and boring government work, but to those commissioners it was exciting, important and fun. Yes, fun. In the process of working on the Charter we formed a bond, reflected in the fact that we gathered again last week to celebrate this anniversary. We became friends, honoring and respecting each others’ hard work and service, a relatively rare occurrence in political and government work. But what does all of this mean to the citizens of Centennial and to the work that the city accomplishes on

their behalf? Before becoming a home-rule city, Centennial was, by far, the largest statutory city in Colorado. That means that the state government had control over many of Centennial’s affairs and decisions. Perhaps the most important of these was the collection and audit of Centennial’s sales tax. Since adopting the Charter, Centennial has had the ability to collect its own sales tax, and then to audit businesses to make sure they are paying the right amount to the right city. Because Centennial was a new city with unconventional boundaries and because we lacked our own ZIP code, we suspected that some of our sales tax was being remitted to other cities that had no incentive to forward the sales tax to us. The State Department of Revenue col-

lected Centennial’s sales tax, but we had no way of knowing whether it was the correct amount. And it was very difficult to get the state to audit local businesses to make sure the money was going to the right place. Since we began collecting our own sales tax and performing our own audits, Centennial has been able to perform over 200 audits and has seen an increase in sales tax revenues of over $5 million. That money was owed to the city to provide services to our citizens. While that number may be inflated by the addition of new businesses or deflated by the recession, what is known is that under home rule, the city has more reliable information and is able to be more responsible about our taxes and the services we provide. The Charter also required im-

proved governmental and financial accountability through various citizen commissions and committees. The Budget, Audit and Investment committees provide an opportunity for citizen representation and review of the city’s financial activities. The Election Commission allows for citizen input, which was especially important during the 2010 U.S. Census-based redistricting of City Council districts. These committees are made up of citizens who, like the charter commissioners, are deeply committed to good governance. While you may never have an opportunity to (or want to) read the Charter, the City Council and staff often refer to it for guidance about how our municipal government should be run and how the Charter limits or defines our power. Because of the way we wrote the Charter, even if the Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights (or TABOR) were ever rescinded, any new taxes, tax increases or debt would have to be approved by a vote of the citizens of Centennial. Believe it or not, these kinds of issues do come up, and Centennial’s citizens are well protected by the Charter. So, this month is a perfect time to reflect on what works in local government, and to take hope in the commitment and service of those who volunteer their time to make our community stronger. You don’t have to wait for the 4th of July – Centennial can begin celebrating independence a little early this summer. Cathy Noon is the mayor of Centennial

Business After Hours at the Marriott beats the heat Despite the early summer heat, or perhaps because of it, the chamber’s June Business After Hours was enjoyed by 140 Chamber Investors and guests at the newly renovated Denver Marriott South at Park Meadows. The hotel completed a $3.8 million renovation last October and is continuing to showcase the new look including the update to its in-house restaurant, Sonoma’z Wine Bar & Grill. The hotel’s well-known hospitality was enjoyed by all (especially the air conditioning) in their Park Ridge Ballroom. The Marriott’s culinary staff demonstrated their skills as beautifully set appetizers and desserts were continually replenished along with the ice-cold beverages. Conversations and laughter among the crowd filled the room with a congenial atmosphere as old friends connected and new friendships were created. Alex Benko of Trout Mobile said, “The great group of SMDC

Denver Marriott South - Park Meadows was an exceptional venue for tonight’s event.” Chamber board member and this year’s Community Leader of the Year Jeff Wasden of PROformance Apparel quieted the group long enough to introduce the hotel’s Director of Operations, David Di-

Falco. “Thank you all for coming to help us spread the word about our beautiful new hotel.

The renovation has brought new life and color to every one of the 279 guest rooms, our restaurant - Sonoma’z with its three private dining rooms, our outdoor patios, and our lobby and we look forward to sharing it with Denver,” said DiFalco. A business card drawing was held with Amanda Doubet of the American Cancer Society winning a $100 gift certificate to Sonoma’z and Karen Doebelin of Pots Tea winning an overnight stay at the hotel. The event was a great way to celebrate a longtime Chamber Investor as well as continue to build Remarkable Relationships.

Greenwood Village aces annual A&E Briefs comprehensive financial report

A

By Jan Wondra uditors have completed their comprehensive annual review of city finances for Greenwood Village and given the city not just a clean slate, but a Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting for its fiscal year ending Dec. 31, 2012, the 23rd consecutive year it has received this honor. The award is presented by the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada, and represents the highest award for financial achievement that a municipality can receive. The award was included in the Dec. 31, 2012, Greenwood Village Comprehensive Annual Report and audit. This audit was completed by licensed, certified public accounting firm BKD, LLP. The audit opinion (now called an unmodified opinion) issued May 24, is that Greenwood Village financial statements fairly represent a sound and accurate financial position. The audit comes on the heels of the city’s shift in its accounting policies. The shift, led by Shawn Cordsen, Greenwood Village director of Finance, brings it into compliance with what is called

CSO performs selections from Beck’s ‘Song Reader’

“Governmental Accounting Standards Board statement No. 63.” GASB63 renames many accounting functions to move municipalities toward a common accounting language, covering such terms as deferred outflows of resources, and deferred inflows of resources. Such documents are designed “to provide a broad overview of city finances in a manner similar to private-sector business.” A few of the renaming practices may seem to be semantics, but represent an important shift in terminology and government best practices. “For instance what we used to call ‘net assets’ is now called our ‘net position,’” said Cordsen. The city’s net assets exceeded its liabilities at the close of fiscal 2012 by $164.7 million. Of this amount, more than $34.2 million exist as its unrestricted net position, an increase of nearly $2.4 million over the prior year, indicating a slow but continually improving economic environment. This amount represents the funds that can be used to meet the government’s ongoing obligations to citizens and creditors. At the end of the current fiscal year, the city’s governmen-

tal fund balances stood at $37.7 million, an increase of more than $379,000 over the year prior. Of this amount, approximately 55.3 percent or $20.8 million of the General Fund, exists as unrestricted fund balances, or approximately 70.9 percent of total General Fund expenditures. This “unassigned fund balance” can be directed at the discretion of the City council, or held in reserve. “All in all, we are pleased by the results of the audit,” said City Manager Jim Sanderson, “and commend the strong financial work of our finance director.”

Summerfest 2013 approved for liquor license

Summerfest 2013 is safe. There is officially no need to fret over whether or not you’ll hold a frosty glass of beer in your hand; the beer will be flowing. The short public hearing about the permit saw only John Herbert, organizer of the event speaking. The Greenwood Village Local Liquor Licensing Authority gave unanimous approval for its special events liquor permit. The June 22 event at 7600 Landmark from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., began as a classic car show, called “Rollin’ Dreams.” In three short years, it has grown to a celebra-

Brushstrokes toasts Summer Solstice with ‘Art Patio & Sculpture Garden’ Summer solstice marks the launch of Brushstrokes StudioGallery’s “Art Patio & Sculpture Garden” at its new venue on South Broadway (1487 S.

Chick-fil-A slated for Kmart Plat division

Rocky Mountain Brass Concert at Curtis Park

City Council reviewed the final plat of a plan, designating a portion of Lot 3 of the Kmart Subdivision Filing No. 1 to become a new Chick-fil-A restaurant. The plan had passed Greenwood Village Planning and Zoning Committee in April. “No one has wanted a Chickfil-A in the city more than I have,” said Councilwoman Bette Todd. “But we wanted to make sure that the traffic and parking could be well-handled on the site.” The new slightly-over-oneacre lot, located at 9351 E. Arapahoe Road, has been re-planned to accommodate more stacked lines for the drive-through area than contained in the original site plans. Called a “dual order” stack, it accommodates twice as many cars in the same amount of space. The city first reviewed a plan for a Chick-fil-A four years ago, as part of the former Home Depot Site Development Plan Amendment.

Philanthropy in Action

Mary Bennett at Arrupe Jesuit High School told us that students formed the Philanthropy In Action initiative at the beginning of the school year.  The Mark Paul Terk Charitable Trust was the funding source. The initiative was granted $50,000 to distribute to community nonprofits involved in women’s, children’s and family services, emergency services, education and environmental programs.  Through weekly meetings, the group’s faculty moderator Max Magee mentored students as they learned about the needs of their community. On May 7, students made final selections, awarding grants ranging in size from $5,000 to $7,500 to Court Appointed Special Advocates, Denver Catholic Worker Soup Kitchen, Denver Children’s Home, Escuela de Guadalupe, Fe Y Alegria, Seeds of Hope and the Women’s Bean Project.  A ceremony to present the awards was held at Arrupe Jesuit High School May 22.

Etiquette

Let’s talk about hotels this week and talk is one of most travelers’ pet peeves, especially when late-arriving and early-departing guests slam doors seemingly as hard as they can, and talk loud enough in the hallways to be heard back home. It seems just about everyone I encounter since starting this etiquette section of GloryUs Goings On has something to say about their last hotel stay and the noise is tops. Children need to be told to use their indoor voices in the hotel lobbies, restaurants and other common areas. Pools should close by 10 p.m. and one reason is that the brick and concrete walls of hotel exteriors act as canyons shooting up every sound as if it was an indoor stadium. Sure we all want to have fun but if you want quiet when checking in, ask for a room or suite without windows facing the pool. The icemaker is another megaphone letting those with accommodations adjacent to the grinding machine know when it’s dumping ice into its bin all night long. If you spot this gizmo next to your room think twice if you’re a light sleeper. Ditto with the elevator. If your room faces an indoor courtyard, be on alert: if there’s a large wedding or convention at a hotel you’re probably going to notice the “100 percent club members” who linger around the lobby and have bottoms up attitudes that grow more evident with each round of margaritas or beer. Now about the towels and bathrobes. They are yours only to use. Leave them there because those who decide to take them make more honest guests pay more to cover the cost of this thievery. The small bottles of toiletries are yours to use and take. If you’re used to room service, a word of caution: many hotels are ditching this open 24-hour hot meal service as it’s too expensive to keep up with, even though the charge for toast and coffee can be excessive. Head to a Starbucks instead and lots of hotels now have them inside the lobby. Happy trails! gloryweisberg@comcast.net

Franklin as Missy won four Gold Medals in swimming competition. “I am the reincarnation of my father,” Missy said at the gala. “He is the most incredible man I’ve ever known.” Mr. Franklin is executive director of Cleantech Open, which seeks to “find, fund and foster” entrepreneurs. Through this firm, more than 600 companies have gained $660 million of funding and created more than 2,300 clean tech jobs. Bill Hanzlik is a former Denver Nuggets player and coach and now an analyst on Altitude. He founded and now runs the Gold Crown Foundation, which engages 20,000 children ages 9-18 in the foundation’s sports programs. He and wife Maribeth have four children and one grandchild. Adam Sayers is vice president and co-founder of Axia Energy, a local private oil and gas business. He has served three years chairing the board of Camp Wapiyapi, which sends cancer-stricken children and their brothers and sisters to camp, letting them focus on fun for a change. Cancer League of Colorado

has given grants to the camp consistently since the 1990s. Sayers has four children with his wife Jamie, and in his spare time, Adam coaches the children’s sports activities. If you’ve heard of Cheetah Dragons much you probably know that Adam is the team’s leader. Sayers is also supporting the Boy Scouts. The licensed pilot is also likely to spend time with the family skiing and camping. The Do at the Zoo has benefited from the success of contractor Ed Haselden, whose firm is anchored in Centennial. The engineer’s business focuses on health care, education and other construction and his family is usually front and center at the Denver Zoo’s fundraising efforts. Ed and

wife Genni have three now grown kids. In his spare time he plays with his band, the Moderators. They’ve likely played rock ‘n’ roll charity fundraisers you’ve attended. Can we say that he literally, rocks? Estrella Gonzales is only 3 years old and she has to endure eight to 10 shots a day for her diabetes, which is an ongoing struggle for her and her single mom. The disease affects her not just physically but also mentally and emotionally as well. I’m sure other kids with diabetes can likely agree. But to add to that, Estrella has asthma and is one of the Father of the Year Awards Ambassador, as are Sean Brandon, and Baleigh and Madelyn Doyle. Both girls attend Chaparral High School. The girls

already have impressive resumes. Ambassador Brady King has an insulin pump but he’s also given himself 14,000 finger pokes to check his blood sugar. Rob Cohen and Stephanie Loughner co-chaired the gala, working with a host committee consisting of Scott Binder, Walt DeHaven, Tom Dyk, Steve ErkenBrack, Mike Imhoff, Jeff Jones, Steve Mut, Hassan Salem and Jim Swayze. The nationwide Father’s Day/ Mother’s Day Council is an allvolunteer membership association that’s raised more than $30 million for the American Diabetes Association. gloryweisberg@comcast.net

Centennial hosts ‘Night at the Movies’ June 29 Spend a summer evening watching a flick in Centennial Center Park. Centennial Night at the Movies is Saturday, June 29, in the amphitheater at Centennial Center Park. Pre-movie entertainment starts at 6:30 p.m. and the movie, Wreck-It Ralph, will begin at sunset.  Centennial Center Park is located at 13050 E. Peakview Ave.  (adjacent to the Centennial Civic Center).

 Bring a picnic, blanket or chair and enjoy free entertainment for the whole family. Free popcorn will be provided. 



Upper Division students pose with a presentation check to the Denver Dumb Friends League.

Denver JDS students make a $7,000+ difference in the community Submitted by Denver JDS Social responsibility is a trait we all hope our children will embrace. At Denver Jewish Day School, it’s part of the student mentality – and supported by the school’s curriculum. Students in grades K-5 work as a class to raise money and awareness for their selected organization through a service-learning program called Helping Hands. Middle school students take a Tikkun Olam (healing the world) class, and, among other things, the high school students partake in curriculum-based fundraisers and run a track and field meet in the spring for Special Olympics Colorado. During the 2012-13 school year,

Denver JDS kindergarten through fifth graders supported Freedom Service Dogs, Ekar Family Farms, The Anchor Center, Jewish Family Services, Newborns in Need, and Wish for Wheels respectively. In addition to contributing volunteer hours, the students raised more than $6,500 for their chosen charities. Representatives from each charity were presented checks at the school’s final Lower Division Kabbalat Shabbat ceremony on the afternoon of May 31. As part of an upper divisionwide math project students in grades six through twelve turned a lesson in the mathematics associated with running a business into

a school-wide example of philanthropy. Over a two-week period, students invented products, conducted market research to determine pricing and associated costs with creating and advertising their products, promoted their products, and then sold their products. Each group of students kept a tally of their profits and losses, getting a comprehensive taste for business start-up. Instead of keeping their earnings (which were over $800), the upper division students donated all profits to the Denver Dumb Friends League. “The spirit of tzedakah (charity) our students demonstrate year in and year out makes me so

proud,” said Head of School/CEO Avi Halzel. “The Helping Hands program in the Lower Division and the “Math For Business” unit in the Upper Division are perfect expressions of our school’s middot (Jewish values). I regularly hear from alumni that the philanthropic habits they developed here have stayed with them for life.” Denver Jewish Day School is the only community K-12 Jewish day school in the Rocky Mountain Region. The school’s mission is to educate Jewish students through an integrated secular and Jewish studies program to thrive in college and beyond and act ethically and powerfully in the world.

Senate Minority Leader Cadman speaks to Cherry Creek Republican Women By Scottie Taylor Iverson

A

t the last meeting before the organization’s summer hiatus, Cherry Creek Women Republican members and guests were treated to a presentation by Colorado Senate Minority Leader Bill Cadman, who was humorous, informative and complimentary of his friend and former colleague Nancy Spence. “I’ve never seen Nancy look more relaxed. Not having her there is a huge loss to the Senate. She was the hardest worker, cared more and honored her constituents. She is a reason there should not be term limits,” Cadman said. When asked if he had any good news about the last legislative session, Cadman said, “It was a tough session and do you have any doubt where this governor stands? “When you are sworn in to the Senate, you take a solemn oath to uphold the Colorado Constitution,

Former state Sen. Nancy Spence, Senate Minority Leader Bill Cadman and Gayle Novak serve the ideals upon which that Constitution was founded and take that oath willingly, freely and sincerely. Maybe the Hippocratic Oath should be taken as well – first: Do No Harm… “People are starting to pay attention – the Dems are overreaching,” he continued and addressed the topics of education, health, elections and recalls. On education, he remarked that the billion-dollar tax increase barely addresses the defi-

atricia and Brian Watson welcomed Secretary of State Scott Gessler to their serene Greenwood Village mini ranch. Gessler addressed the outdoor audience who had enjoyed a barbeque replete with badger meat. “I have been an attorney for 10 years and I love being secretary of state. I’d like to think I’m a fresh voice from what we’ve had in the past. We need to raise

friends and raise funds. Our views work. We need to keep this great thing going and inspire future generations. We need to make Colorado a beacon for freedom, opportunity and liberty. We don’t need to change our principles, just articulate why they are better. The top three issues in Colorado are: Economy (we’re doing OK, but we should be great), Education and Public Safety. If people pay attention, we can win this race.”

ciencies that won’t be fixed with new money. Health is one of the most expensive undertakings and the Medicaid expansion cannibalizes other programs. On the gun bills there is lots of debate. “God bless our sheriffs for standing up,” he said. There are plenty of bills attacking the oil and gas industry. “As for elections, the Republicans need to pick up three seats. Recalls have not been used much

until recently. Senate President John Morse has two times the number of signatures needed. The Dems seem to forget it is our seat, not your seat. We need to embrace the values of Republicans, not change what it means to be a Republican and just get marginally better at a few things. We need not to let the Dems market who we are but sell the truth.” He encouraged the audience to visit www.Coloradans foranewmajority.com.

Ethiopian community to honor King Foundation, Sweeney

Submitted by Ellsworth Grant The Kenneth King Foundation has a long and distinguished history of helping the less fortunate in times of need in Colorado. The organization was established by Mr. King in 1990 with full funding occurring after his death in 1992. The foundation has always operated based on Mr. King’s modus operandi: “To do the common thing in an uncommon way.” The mission of the King Foundation has always been to assist disadvantaged folks who really need help. The organization focuses primarily on human services and religious organizations. This is the area where the foundation has had a major impact on the lives of many here in Colorado. Organizations are only as effective as the people who lead them. The Kenneth King Foundation has been particularly fortunate to have Bob Sweeney, owner/publisher of The Villager, as its president. Since 1993, Sweeney, as president of the King Foundation, has had a tremendous impact on the lives of many in the community. Colorado’s Ethiopian community in general and Agape Church in particular will always be indebted to Sweeney and the Kenneth King Foundation. In its time of greatest need, Agape Church and the Ethiopian community turned to Sweeney and the King Foundation. The response was overwhelming and more than the community could have ever imagined.

To show its appreciation and gratitude, members of the Ethiopian community of Colorado and Agape Church will have an appreciation dinner and concert this Saturday, June 22, at the First Baptist Church of Denver. Ethiopia’s most famous living classical pianist and composer, Girma Yifrashewa, will give a solo performance as part of the event. Using traditional tunes as a foundation, Yifrashewa’s compositions combine the ecstasy of Ethiopian harmony with the grandeur of virtuoso piano technique into an effortlessly enjoyable, heady mixture. He studied at the Sofia State Conservatory of Music in Bulgaria, where he graduated with a master’s in Piano under Professor Atanas Kurtev. It was in Bulgaria that Yifrashewa made an impact as a solo pianist, performing the works of Schumann, Schubert, Chopin and Debussy throughout the country until his return to east Africa in 1995. He has a preference for the music of Bach, as well as Mozart and Beethoven. The event honoring Bob Sweeney and The King Foundation will be from 1 – 5:30 p.m., Saturday, June 22, at First Church of Denver 1373 Grant St. in Denver. Yifrashewa’s solo performance will run from 7 – 8 p.m. Join us and enjoy great Ethiopian food and classical music as we celebrate the great work of Bob Sweeney and the King Foundation. This event is free to the public.

Conserve water, keep your yard healthy – advice from professionals Submitted by GreenCO Just in time for the summer heat, Green Industries of Colorado, in cooperation with Colorado Water Conservation Board, has just released educational materials to help homeowners keep their yards and plants healthy while doing their part to conserve water.  A series of fact sheets and videos cover a variety of topics including keeping your yard healthy in a drought, tree care, the principles of Xeriscape and tips

on programming and maintaining a water-efficient sprinkler system. Green Industries of Colorado is a statewide alliance of seven trade associations representing all facets of the horticulture and landscape industries. GreenCO’s scientific best practices were used as the foundation for these materials to explain specific outdoor water conservation tips to use less water, while ensuring the overall health and value of the landscape in both wet and dry years. Experts including landscape design and

maintenance professionals, irrigation and trees were interviewed for the videos. While much of Colorado has enjoyed a relatively wet, cool spring, hotter temperatures are forecasted for the summer and water use will begin to increase. GreenCO’s goal for the campaign is to emphasize that it is possible

to have a beautiful yard and still save water if you follow recommendations based on plant science and proven conservation methods. The materials are available on the GreenCO website at www. greenco.org/resources.html and are being disseminated by GreenCO members, water provid-

lifestyles

ers and other entities encouraging water conservation. Videos are also posted on the GreenCO Channel on YouTube. GreenCO members are committed to water conservation and industry-wide  best management practices as a way of doing business. We provide expert advice on how to select and properly care for plants and landscapes. The development of these materials was made possible through a Water Efficiency Grant from the Colorado Water Conservation Board.   For more information, visit www.GreenCO.org.

When you select plants, choose the right plant for the right place. Plants with low water requirements will do better in drought years. Many nurseries carry Plant Select and X-rated, which are chosen for their ability to thrive in the unique conditions of Rocky Mountain gardens Courtesy photo

A strong home begins with a solid foundation Submitted by Don Eloe, Construction Supervisor, DURA Home ownership is a great investment, but it is one that takes regular attention to make sure that it retains value. While many owners focus on the most visible parts of the home, one of the most important is often invisible: the foundation. All houses settle to some degree, but extreme ground shifting or water damage can cause real problems. In particular, a damaged foundation can create serious safety issues, so it is critical not to ignore warning signs.

Here are a few things to keep an eye out for:

• Cracks in the sheetrock around the house • Doors and windows that become difficult to open and close • Cracks in the floors, walls or ceilings • Walls that lean or bulge in the middle • Leaking faucets or cracked pipes • Sloping or sagging floors If any of these issues are noticeable, it is important to seek professional help right away before more damage occurs or someone gets hurt. However, if you’re in good shape, then here are a couple of things that you can do to stay that way.

Maintain your sump pump

Just like wood, concrete can be damaged by water. Most home foundations are made of concrete, and it is important to make sure that they are waterproofed below grade when laid. From there, it’s just an issue of removing pooling water, and a sump pump is the best way to do that. Not all houses have or need a sump pump, but if you do, it’s important to keep it working properly. Regular maintenance only requires a couple of minutes every 2-3 months and whenever heavy rains are forecast. To keep your pump working its best, pull it out and clean the grate at the bottom to make sure that rocks or other hard objects haven’t been pulled in. Once clean, put it back standing upright, and then verify that the power cords are unworn/ undamaged and plugged in. Finally, check that drainage pipes are working properly and draining out at least 20 feet away from your foundation.

Gutters

Gutters are a simple and affordable means to collect and redirect water to a safer place. Make sure that the gutter downspouts on your home have extensions at the bottom to move water away from the foundation and into the yard. Ideally, extensions should be about 5 feet long, and affordable, quality brands can be purchased at hardware and supply stores. Additionally, homeowners should clean

U.S. Navy aircraft carrier hosts Denver area community leaders

W

Submitted by Dan Puleio hat do a Denver Police Officer, a business executive, an entrepreneur, an engineer, a restaurant owner, a medical doctor, a school teacher, an investor and an attorney have in common? This is the group that joined together for a once in a lifetime experience known as a “Distinguished Visitor Aircraft Carrier Embarkation,” a trip offered to diverse community leaders to fly aboard a U.S. Navy aircraft carrier operating at sea, experience an arrested (tailhook) landing and catapult take off, and view all aspects of shipboard operations and life onboard this floating city of 5,000 servicemen and women. Conducted at no cost to the taxpayer, all participants must pay their own way, in this instance to San Diego, to catch the C-2 Greyhound turboprop aircraft shuttling personnel to one of the Nation’s nine nuclear powered aircraft carriers, the USS Carl Vinson (CVN 70). Upon return from this two-day round the clock trip, the members enthusiastically agreed to a reunion dinner. This was the opportunity to have them share what each viewed as the highpoint of their visit. In an effort to support local business, the group assembled at Volcano Asian Restaurant for a truly superior meal. Hosted by owner, Jie “Jay” Zheng, a highly respected leader in the Asian and diversity community, a common discussion theme was how to assist Colorado’s youth and military veterans with viable mentoring and career options. While all were in awe with Cherry Creek School District teacher Joe Suchman tours the hangar bay of a Navy nuclear powered aircraft carrier during a recent at-sea Distinguished Visitor trip.

the technology witnessed on this 90,000-ton floating city, which incidentally is unique to the U.S. Navy among all the nations on earth, it was the sailors who most impressed the visitors. Denver Police Officer Technician Henry Jones said, “5,000 men and women with an average age of only 22, reflected an uncommon pride in being a part of something greater than oneself, and a remarkable confidence and focus on their work and mission.” Dr. Cecile Rose, Head of Occupational Medicine at National Jewish Health, said, “I fully agree with Technician Jones, and I am NOT easily impressed.” Jay Zheng said, “As a master’s degreed engineer with an MBA, the precision of motion that I observed through shipboard operations defines the term, “Running a tight ship”. Navy Senior Chief Ryan Baste-

an was on hand to discuss his background while growing up in Minnesota, and his experience while serving in the Navy. The Navy prides itself in offering higher education, whether it be $180,000 college scholarships to the nation’s top 160 universities, via the Navy ROTC program, or medical/nursing school, thereby allowing health care professionals to complete their eduction debt-free. These are only a small sampling of the many options available for the “best and brightest” young adults in America. All concluded that the overnight visit to an operating Navy aircraft carrier was an inspirational and perhaps life changing experience, energizing them to become ever more committed community leaders. Story by Dan Puleio, a former Navy pilot and president of the Denver Council Navy League of the U.S. “Citizens in Support of the Sea Services.”

Victorious Victor

Once a city of nearly 8,000 people but now a town of 392 residents, Victor showcases its historic character and architecture from the gold rush days.

Historic town heats up the summer with local events By Cathleen Norman ictor is more vibrant these days. For a few decades the town south of Cripple Creek was a ghost of its former self. Its population peaked at around 8,000 in the 1890s, but had plummeted to less than 300 by 1990. The City of Mines has roared back to life through a mixture of largescale gold mining and tourism. Visitors enjoy antique shopping, museums, good restaurants and fun-filled festivals and events. The famed Cripple Creek gold rush began in 1890 when cowboy-prospector Bob Womack discovered glittering gold in the high-country cow pasture on the backside of Pikes Peak. The last and greatest Colorado gold rush created a 5-mile-by6-mile mining district. Grazing land gave way to mining head frames, ore dumps and the busy cities of Cripple Creek, Victor and Goldfield, as well as a dozen smaller villages. Three railroads served the mining operations and also brought people into the district by the thousands. Soon, inter-urban streetcar lines crisscrossed the hilly terrain connecting cities and villages and mine sites. At the south end of the district, Victor had some of the

V

district’s major producing mines at its edges and even within the city limits — these included the Portland, Ajax, Independence, Gold Coin and Strong. Investors Warren Woods and his sons Henry and Frank laid out the townsite on the steeply slanting slope, and people poured in. Victor quickly grew from a handful of tents and prospectors’ shacks into a thriving city that incorporated in 1894. The influx of miners and laborers was joined by merchants and professionals who profited from providing supplies and services. Soon, women and children brought the need for schools, churches, a park and a library. A major fire erupted on Aug. 21, 1899, which destroyed the entire commercial district of woodframe buildings, as well as neighboring houses. The blaze had started in the redlight district by a prostitute who lit a cigarette while cleaning her gown with gasoline. Within mere months, the commercial heart of the city was rebuilt with architect-designed buildings of strong, stout brick. However, the City of Mines soon faced another challenge. A community of miners and mine workers, Victor became a flashpoint for labor union strikes. It was a major stronghold for the large, powerful Western Federation of Miners that exerted its presence in every important mining district

in the American West. In Victor, the WFM erected a prominent two-story building on a double lot, and soon the union instigated the “Labor Union War” of 1903-04. At the time, the Cripple Creek-Victor Mining District was regarded as the most unionized place in the world, with dozens of labor unions — even the dance hall girls and newspaper delivery boys organized into unions. The WFM miners went on strike in Victor and Cripple Creek in late spring of 1903 demanding an eight-hour, $3 day for themselves and for the mill workers who processed the gold ore down in Colorado City (today On a foggy day, Victor still looks like a ghost town.

part of Colorado Springs’ West Side neighborhood). The strike ended in August 1904 with the union miners defeated. The district withered during the 1920s, ‘30s and ‘40s, its most profitable ore deposits exhausted. Some mining continued on a smaller scale: typically independent operators who leased mining claims. World War II curbed gold production further when the federal government mandated that mining industry resources go towards base metals like lead, copper and zinc used in war rather than mining gold. Decades of decline gave Victor a lost-in-time look with tumbled-down buildings, vacant houses and empty lots where gold-rush-era buildings once stood. The isolated location and abandoned appearance attracted people like the artists from the Broadmoor Art Academy who painted picturesque scenes of the vacant streets and idle mines. Bootlegging ran rampant in the district, and a few speakeasies and brothels operated attracting soldiers from Camp Carson and others looking for a good time Meanwhile, merchants in Cripple Creek and Victor envisioned bringing more visitors into the district to strengthen the retail, restaurant and bar businesses. The Two-Mile High Club organized as a booster

group and in 1931 staged the first Donkey Derby race, traditionally over the rough mining terrain between the two towns. Tourism got a major boost in 1950 when the Mackin family bought and refurbished the Imperial Hotel and launched a highly popular summer melodrama there. The last rail train had departed from the district in 1949, but tourists came into town by automobile, fascinated with the storied gold rush era. To preserve and promote the gold rush story, the District Museum opened in 1953 occupying the tall redbrick railroad depot that anchors the east end of downtown Cripple Creek. In 1958, the Victor Museum opened on Victor Avenue (its name was changed to the Victor Lowell Thomas Museum in 1981). The late 1950s and early ‘60s also brought a brief revival of mining, and a modern ore processing mill was built midway between Cripple Creek and Victor. Several independent mines operated, none very profitable; and extensive investigation began assessing the ore deposits and mine waste for large-scale processing of low-grade ore. Summer tourism continued to flourish, although things slowed down significantly in winter. By the 1980s, Cripple Creek’s City Council was looking into legalized gambling as a way to generate tax revenue. Cripple Creek embraced limited stakes gaming in 1991, but Victor did not. Instead, mining again became its economic engine, with tourism added to the mix. The City has made many civic improvements to enhance Victor’s charms and showcase the town’s intact architecture and authentic history; several projects have received State Historical Fund grants from gaming tax revenue. Events attract and entertain folks throughout the year. Gold Rush Days, the third weekend in July, celebrates the industry that created the City of Mines. The Victor Celebrates the Arts festival draws en plein air outdoor painters over Labor Day weekend. In winter, the ice rink appeals to skaters of all ages as well as the Victor Penguins youth hockey team. This past February, the town staged the Victor Steampunk Festival, to be repeated next year. Another new event takes place this weekend, June 2223. The Victor Gem and Mineral Show is open and free to the public. Vendors from across the state will be selling Colorado minerals, gems, hand-crafted jewelry, mining antiques, rough slabs and specimens, including gold ore specimens from the CC&V Mine. Kids can pan for gold and gems at the Victor Lowell Thomas Museum. The whole family will enjoy browsing the Museum gift shop for rocks, gems, minerals, rhodochrosite and aquamarine jewelry and geodes. The show is sponsored by the Southern Teller County Focus Group. And visitors to Victor can also take a close-up look at Colorado’s largest open-pit mining operation. Tours of the CC&V Mining depart twice daily, showing the gigantic scale of 21st century hard-rock mining. The two-hour tour costs $7.50 per person, all ages.

CHV selects student High Line Canal video winners PAGE 27 • THE VILLAGER • June 20, 2013

T

By Jan Wondra hree team winners of the Cherry Hills Village Mayor’s Competition for Student-Produced Video contest have been announced by Mayor Doug Tisdale. Two teams from St. Mary’s Academy were awarded the First Place for the High School Division and the Grand Prize for the entire Competition, walking away with the coveted Leone d’Oro Prize. A team from West Middle School was awarded First Place in the Middle School Division. More than $2,500 in prize money was awarded in this first-ever video competition, designed to celebrate the beauty, history, legacy and value of the High Line Canal Trail. A St. Mary’s Academy team of high school juniors, Kelsey Waldron, Kathryn Harhai and Sara Van Velkinburgh, will share the $1,000 Leone d’Oro Grand Prize Award. Entitled, The High Line Canal, the five-minute video is a love letter to the High Line Canal, filled with stunning visual images of the Canal Trail, accompanied by narration, including quotes from William Wordsworth and Albert Einstein and a poetic celebration of nature. The musical soundtrack underlies the message and visuals, which include the all-too-rare water in the Canal. Striking, time-lapse sunset scenes bookend the video. “Once these videos go through a post-production process, they will be broadcast on KCHV-TV, which is our cable channel here in the Village,” said Mayor Tisdale. “We have already received requests from other High Line Canal communities to allow them to broadcast the videos – the winners and the Honorable

Mentions – on their cable channels, as well as displaying them at various meetings and other gatherings of interested groups. These videos are simply too good to keep to a limited audience.” The High School Division First Place Award of $500 was awarded to a St. Mary’s Academy senior team of Hayley Lansing, Hanna Pardee and Liz Van Dorn. Their video, Experiencing the High Line Canal Trail, links a series of brief interview segments with people while they are out enjoying the Trail. The pulsating music score includes dramatic cuts of songbirds and a hooting owl. The Middle School Division First Prize and the $500 award was won by a West Middle School team of Henry Davis and Julia Merten, both eighth graders. Their twominute video, Cherry Hills Village – The High Line Canal, includes trailrunners and makes imaginative of a head-mounted camera to capture the experience of biking on the Canal Trail. A meditative soundtrack represents the peace and tranquility of the trail. Faculty advisors to the high school division winners were Tanya Komandt and Kelsey Vroomunn. The faculty advisors to the middle school winner were Craig Sisson and Elizabeth Mulroney. “I was stunned by the imagination, the skill and the talent that these young filmmakers demonstrated,” said Tisdale. “I wish that we could have proclaimed all of them winners. It was a very difficult job for the judges, I can tell you!” The videos were judged by a panel of 10 judges, including Mayor Tisdale, Greenwood Village Mayor Ron Rakowsky, Cherry

High School Division Honorable mention winners, with Mayor Tisdale, include Nayeli Villalobos, Kristin Tomlinson and Catherine Ingersoll, all students at St. Mary’s Academy.

O

n May 9, the Littleton Public Schools Board of Education celebrated the impressive academic achievements of 10 members of the class of 2013. Members of their families were in attendance.

Photo courtesy of Littleton Public Schools niors were recognized as National Merit Commended Scholars. National Merit Scholars are chosen from an elite pool of National Merit Scholarship finalists. Only about 8,000 seniors from across the nation are chosen as National Merit Scholars each spring based on their abilities, skills and accomplishments. National Merit Scholarship Finalists are selected from the pool of Semifinalists. They must score in the top 1 percent on the Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test and excel in extracurricular and community activities. Finalists nationwide are eligible for more than $30 million in college scholarships at colleges and universities in Colorado and throughout the United States. Com-

bined 24 Littleton Public Schools seniors were chosen by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation for these academic honors. Boettcher Scholarships provide full tuition, fees, books and living stipend for four years at any college or university in Colorado. Boettcher Scholars must rank in the top 5 percent of their class and score at least 1,200 out of a possible score of 1,6000 on the SAT. Only 40 Colorado seniors are selected as Boettcher Scholars each year. Three seniors from LPS (one from each high school) were selected for these prestigious scholarships. This is very rare, as only 40 Colorado seniors are selected each year.

Participation in the Presidential Scholars Program is by invitation only and is based on exceptional scores on the SAT or the ACT as well as outstanding academic achievement. Less than 200 students are chosen from a national graduating class of about three million each year. Four seniors from LPS were invited to participate as scholar candidates in this prestigious national scholarship program. One LPS senior has been named one of two Colorado students selected as a Presidential Scholars and will be recognized in Washington, D.C.

LPS PTO scholarships support teacher training

Teacher, community leader honored as Asset Champions Educator Mary Pratt and community leader Doug Ashley were honored as Asset Champions by the Community Asset Project for their long-time dedication to children and the community. Pratt, who has been a teacher at Creekside Elementary for 18 years, was recognized for her work to promote a caring, inclusive environment at Creekside that supports all students. In her nomination of Pratt, parent Heather Wahlstrom talked about the impact Pratt had on both of her children. “My oldest son told me, ‘Mrs. Pratt was always incorporating fun into her classroom while she taught us valuable life-long lessons.’ My youngest son told me ‘Mrs. Pratt always believed in me (and all the students) and she taught me that I could do anything I set my mind to,’”

Wahlstrom said. Doug Ashley serves and supports youth through his role as Executive Pastor at Greenwood Community Church and as a member of the CAP Board for the past six years. Ashley has held many positions on the board, including serving two terms as president. “Because of Doug’s leadership, we saw continued growth in the size of our signature events – the First American State Bank Fitness Festival and the Family Wellness Summit,” said fellow CAP board member, Steve Cohen. “As a result, CAP was able to provide more resources to the Cherry Creek Schools Wellness Office to support the health and wellbeing of our students.” The Asset Champion Awards are presented several times a year by CAP, which is a nonprofit partner

Submitted by Littleton Public Schools ach year in May, the Littleton Public Schools Joint PTO Scholarship Fund awards scholarship grants to support teachers’ continued professional growth. These funds, which are a result of a joint enterprise of all individual LPS schools’ PTOs, help teachers pay for special training or classes toward an advanced degree. All teachers in LPS are invited to participate and teachers who meet the requirements are eligible to receive a grant. This year, 15 LPS teachers from across the district were awarded scholarships. Superintendent Scott Murphy presented scholarship recipients with their Joint PTO Scholarship Fund grants during a reception in early May. • Pattie Andrews – Newton Middle School • Tammy Escue – Twain Elementary School • Kerri Esposito – Littleton Preparatory School • Suzanna Gede – Centennial Academy of Fine Arts • Tracy Hoeckelberg – Wilder Elementary School • Lisa Kreutz – Wilder Elementary School • Diane Mayer –

Peabody Elementary School • Mary O’Neil – Goddard Middle School • Devon Reinert – Wilder Elementary School • Debbie Sargent – Franklin Elementary School • Angela Schreiner – Littleton High School • Jenny Shoen – Ralph Moody Elementary School • Anne Smith – Arapahoe High School • Ren Trapino – Franklin Elementary School The LPS Joint PTO Scholarship Committee has been helping teachers cover training costs since 1958. It has been the Committee’s objective to help improve instruction for students by helping teachers get the training they need. The 2013 Committee is led by Cami Van Anne, Margot LeBree, and Mary Kritenbrink. “This program is so special because it is funded with PTO funds, not district funds,” said LPS Director of Communication Diane Leiker. “Parents value continuing education opportunities for teachers. PTOs see how these opportunities for teachers translate into richer experiences for students in the classroom. It’s a wonderful partnership that we as a community are very proud of.”

Spotlight on Business

Partners Alana Norman and Cathy Bosson opened the Greenwood Village location for Fresh in March. The salon offers a broad range of hair, nails and waxing services – not to mention a wine bar.

W

By Peter Jones here can you get a manicure, an eyebrow waxing, a hair washing – and a mimosa? “There was nothing out there that embodied all those services and put them all together,” said Melissa Schedlbauer of Fresh, a so-named nail, wax and dry bar. “You’d go to one person to have your hair blown out, another person to have your nails done, and yet another person to have your waxing done. We bring it all together – and you can have a glass of wine while you’re here.” It’s a “dry bar” in more ways than one, especially for those who love turning their functional hair-drying and salon experience into a day out with friends. “We wanted a place where bridal parties, family reunions, book clubs and tennis clubs could come, have a glass of wine and a bonding experience,” Schedlbauer said. The liquor license aside, this is not your grandmother’s less-thanfresh nail salon. Fresh’s bright colors and chic design are not “waxing nostalgic,” but are decidedly 21st century, offering a décor that speaks nightlife as much as functional service. The burgeoning Colorado-based franchisor has been growing as fast its customers’ hair and nails. Just three years after the corporate Fresh in Littleton’s Aspen Grove debuted, the corporation already boasts two other owner-operated stores, includ-

8000 E. Belleview Ave. Greenwood Village 303-848-8488 www.myfreshplace.com ing the new Greenwood Village outlet that opened in March. The third Fresh is located in Cherry Creek North. A fourth will open in Park Meadows next month with an expansion into Texas slated for later this year. The concept was so appealing to Cathy Bosson and Alana Norman they jumped at the opportunity to open the Greenwood Village franchise, even though the Pilates instructors had no previous experience in the wax, wash or nail industries. “I heard about the concept and said ‘I’m in,’ so we got into it and wrote some checks – many checks. I fell in love with the concept,” said Bosson, who with Norman co-owns the Pilates in the Pines studio in Castle Pines. Fresh’s menu of services runs the gamut from the “classic manicure” and pedicure to reflexology massages, a French bikini waxing and the stylish “Original Brazilian Blowout.” All are performed by licensed cosmetologists. The services are rendered with exacting sanitation guidelines. For example, the stainless steel implements are sterilized in an autoclave

Not surprisingly, more than 90 percent of Fresh’s clientele is female, though men are made to feel welcome with manly manicures, facials and beer in the fridge. Many couples even begin their “date night” at Fresh. Children 12 and younger might consider a “Little Lounger” treatment. “We do a lot of ‘Little Lounger’ parties where a group of 8-year-old girls come in and they all get manicures and pedicures,” Schedlbauer said. A special membership program means complimentary services, discounted prices and monthly specials for regular customers. Some Fresh combo options even include a catered lunch.

Denver Water’s Drought Patrol urges conservation By Tom Barry The message should be loud and clear by now, “It’s a drought,” proclaims Denver Water, which provides the clear liquid gold to 1.3 million customers throughout most of the metro area, including most of southern Arapahoe County. Colorado’s largest water provider has a goal of cutting overall water usage by 20 percent throughout its service area. The mountain reservoirs have experienced a two-year drought, as their levels are well below normal, despite late spring snow and rain. On April Fool’s Day this year, Denver Water wasn’t fooling around when they declared a Stage 2 drought. This water provider’s goal is to save 16 billion gallons of water this year through conservation measures. These watering restrictions are serious, as a Stage 3 drought would ban outdoor lawn watering altogether.

Will inform, educate and fine

Denver Water has purchased 12 Toyota Versa four–door sedans for their “Drought Patrol” team. From a distance, the water cop’s vehicle resembles the Prize Patrol vehicle used by Publisher’s Clearinghouse. In other words, you can’t miss the Water Patrol cars as they traverse the Front Range. Their white sedans have vivid orange and brown decals with several blue drops of water splashed strategically. In essence, the vehicle serves as a traveling billboard throughout the metro area. The messages include:” It’s a drought,” “WE WANT YOU TO SAVE WATER, HELP FIGHT THE DROUGHT” and “Every gallon counts.” In the first six months of this year, the “dreaded dozen” Drought Patrol have focused on their primary mission: to inform and educate water customers on conservation and current water restrictions. There have been more than 4,600 total stops, nearly 2,000 sign deliveries, 19 warnings and two fines, according to Travis Thompson, a media coordinator with Denver Water. The number of violations is expected to climb, as will the mercury in the thermometer throughout the hot summer.

Stiff fines

On the first visit, a water cop gives you a written notice and an information packet attached to your front door. Upon the second visit, the water violator is issued a $250 fine, which is tacked onto your water bill. The third notice doubles the fine and another violation can lead to suspension of water service.

The Drought Patrolwill enforce and educate water users about watering restrictions. “One person can make a difference and if we all pull together we’ll get through the drought,” said Denver Water’s Edward Kosinski, a Drought Patrol team member last week in an interview at the Highline Gardens homes in Littleton. The team members have their trunks packed with customer information, watering tips, a turn key to adjust sprinkler heads, and yes, even free hand-held watering sprayers that are bright orange for the asking, a $4 value. Each Drought Patrol member wears Denver Water clothing with official logos and a lanyard with photo identification.

Enforce and educate

The Drought Patrol vehicles also provide a phone number for you to report on water wasters. If you are so inclined, you can tattletale on water misusers by calling Denver Water at 303-893-2444 or go online to www. denverwater.org. On the rear bumper water conservation cars prominently display a cautious warning in bold letters noting, “This vehicle stops frequently to enforce and educate.” Commercial and residential water customers can only water their lawns twice a week on predetermined days. Legally, watering can only occur between 6 p.m. – 10 a.m. during the coolest time of the day. Watering during the hottest times of the day is wasteful, as a good portion of the water evaporates quickly. Denver Water recommends customers water for a total of 15 minutes per day in each zone/area, for each of the two days. There are a variety of exemptions available by calling Denver Water. These watering restrictions will be in place through September. For additional information on how your grass, flowers and veggies can survive the drought, you can go online to denverwater.org/drought.

By Tom Barry his summer Denver Water is serious about water conservation for it’s 1.3 million customers throughout the Front Range. “Our goal through our drought response is to balance the health, safety, quality of life of our community and protect Denver Water’s operations, infrastructure and financial viability,” said Travis Thompson, a spokesman for Denver Water. “Because we understand the value of the landscapes throughout our communities, we’ve worked closely with the landscape industry as we set restrictions, to be assured that customers can still cut their overall water use by 20 percent while keeping their plants and grass viable.”   

$4 million spent for conservation

Denver Water has spent about $4 million each year in water conservation programs over the last seven years, according to information received from the state’s largest water provider. More than half of this amount was for the indoor and outdoor rebate program. “[This effort] has contributed to our customers reducing water consumption by about 20 percent over the past seven years,” said Thompson. Jeff Tejral, Denver Water’s manager of conservation, said, “We’ve seen that customers are participating in our conservation programs and that they have been widely popular and used to reduce water consumption.” In its ongoing efforts to conserve the precious liquid gold originating from the mountain reservoirs owned and operated by Denver Water, the provider

On June 4 around 10:30 a.m., the sprinklers were watering the grass and sidewalk at Cherry Hills Farms West in Cherry Hills. Denver Water’s drought restrictions do not allow mid-day watering after 10 a.m. Illegal watering can result in hefty fines. limits watering times to late evening after 6 p.m. and in the morning before 10 a.m. “The No. 1 violation we see is people watering in the middle of the day,” said Tejral. “That is inherently wasteful and a lot of water evaporates before it can soak into the soil.” Tejral noted that a lot of water customers are away during the daytime hours and are not aware their automatic irrigation systems are set incorrectly. These systems need to be reset to avoid costly fines for wasting water.

‘…We are in a drought’

“We need to pay attention to water use, now is more important than ever, we are in a drought,” Tejral said. Sod and plants do not need a certain number of days to be watered but they need a certain amount of water. “We also know that customers may feel that they need multiple days to water,” said Tejral.

“Two days a week, that may be enough to keep it [grass/sod] alive but plant material will not thrive.” Denver Water has collaborated with GreenCO, the parent organization of Colorado based green industry groups, Colorado State University and the Association of Lawn Care Contractors of Colorado, to devise these watering restrictions. Conservation audits, rebates and incentive programs are provided to encourage commercial and residential customers to convert to water-saving equipment and practices, according to Denver Water. The provider also offers youth education programs, resources, tours of treatment plants and expert speakers. “The drought patrol program is an essential part of our education and outreach efforts. These employees have face-to-face interactions with customers to discuss water saving practices,” Thompson said.
