Colorado Convention Center adds $235,000 of art

“I Know You Know That I Know,” artwork by Sandra Fettingis

Photography by Paul Brokering, images courtesy of NINE dot ARTS, art consultants for the Colorado Convention Center

The Colorado Convention Center, already known for its innovative public art that includes the 40-foot high Blue Bear peeking into the building, added eight new pieces to its permanent collection. The additions are the result of a public-private partnership

between the City and County of Denver and the convention center’s management firm, SMG, which commissioned the $235,000 project. Denver-based art consulting firm NINE dot ARTS was hired to select and install the new work. The pieces, created by

established and emerging local artists, were able to make use of the vast space in the convention center to create dramatic and engaging works. A 95-by-95 foot mural by Mindy Bray, titled “The Heavy is the Root of the Light,” covers an entire wall behind a two-story escalator. The painting

is based on photographs of the Platte River at nearby Confluence Park, the site where gold was first discovered leading to the founding of Denver in 1858. Another piece by Sandra Fettingis entitled “I Know You Know That I Know” is 160 feet long and spans an entire hallway in

the convention center. The painting creates an environment that envelops the viewer in a repetitive pattern-filled corridor. “Convention centers are also learning centers where people come to be engaged and broaden Continued on page 2

Health insurance enrollment deadline fast approaching Uninsured individuals must enroll by March 31 to be covered in 2014

As the end of March approaches, the Colorado Division of Insurance reminds consumers to review their health insurance options and take action to make sure they are enrolled by March 31. That is the deadline for open enrollment for individual health insurance plans this year. “We want to make sure everyone is aware of the upcoming deadline. If you are uninsured, you still have time to get covered before the window closes,” said Insurance Commissioner Marguerite Salazar. “Now is the time to ask questions, get educated and get covered.” 

The deadline is important for individuals and families who are uninsured. However, for many, the deadline is not a concern, as most Coloradans get health insurance through their employers. Another large group qualifies for Medicaid, the state-federal insurance program for the poor and disabled, or Medicare, the federally funded program for seniors that allows people to enroll when they reach age 65. The uninsured buying individual plans face a deadline of March 31 to enroll, whether they buy directly from insurance companies, through insurance brokers or agents, or through Connect for Health Colorado, the state’s new health insurance marketplace. If someone who can afford health insurance doesn’t have coverage in 2014, they may have to pay

an additional tax liability. This will be either $95 or 1 percent of a person’s yearly household income, which ever is greater. Those without health insurance can shop for new coverage using the following methods. • Connect for Health Colorado – This is the state’s new online marketplace, a website where individuals and small businesses can shop for health insurance among the many plans offered by insurance companies. This is the only place to access tax credits that will make insurance more affordable. Visit  www.connectforhealthco. com or call 1-855-752-6749. • Insurance Companies – Health insurance companies are also available outside the new online marketplace. Consumers can work directly with an insurance company to

purchase health coverage. • Insurance Brokers/ Agents – Consumers may already have an established relationship with an insurance agent/broker and prefer to work with such professionals, who are licensed by the Division of Insurance.  The Division encourages people to enroll for health coverage sooner rather than later. Going without insurance creates uncertainty, the potential for high medical costs and less financial stability should a serious illness or accident occur.  Consumers with questions about health insurance can contact the Division of Insurance at 303-894-7490 or 1-800-9303745. The Division has trained experts ready to answer consumers’ health insurance questions.

Convention Center purchases art Continued from Page 1 their knowledge, so it’s appropriate that art be an important part of the building’s environment,” said Kent Rice, executive director of Arts & Venues for the City of Denver, which oversees the Colorado Convention Center. The new convention center art became a cornerstone for the launch of Mayor Michael B. Hancock’s new cultural plan for Denver, IMAGINE 2020. “Convention centers today must provide practical, green, efficient and easy to use space, but art and atmosphere are just as important to create surroundings that are conducive to learning and to conducting business,” said John Adams, general manager of the Colorado Convention Center. Leaders from Denver Arts & Venues, VISIT DENVER, SMG and the Denver arts community served on a committee that worked with NINE dot ARTS to

select the new pieces. The new additions focus on Denver artists and galleries and showcase both the city’s artistic forefathers such as Roland Bernier and Phil Bender, as well as its next generation of creatives like Derrick Velasquez, Ian Fisher and Mindy Bray. Martha Weidmann, CEO and Co-Founder of NINE dot ARTS, said, “Half of the artists in the new slate are under thirty-five, which is impressive considering most public artists are over forty. For many of the artists this was the largest scale permanent installation they have ever worked at, including veteran artist Roland Bernier who installed the largest piece of his nearly 60 year career. The art committee showed an amazing vision and faith in Denver’s emerging talent to knockout results.”    The new art adds to downtown Denver’s growing reputation as an art center. “Denver has a very progressive public art program, so as people

walk from our 8,500 downtown hotel rooms to the convention center, they will encounter many other public artworks. There are also five art museums within walking distance of the center, so it’s wonderful to keep this feeling of being surrounded by art as you come into the building,” said Richard Scharf, president and CEO of VISIT DENVER. Art has also become a symbol for the Colorado Convention Center. VISIT DENVER has incorporated one of the convention center’s older artworks, a 40-foot tall Blue Bear, officially titled, “I See What You Mean” by Lawrence Argent, into an icon for the city and the lead element in the Bureau’s advertising campaign. “The first thing you see coming into the convention center is the Blue Bear, and now as you walk through the 2 million square foot building, you will continue to encounter art everywhere you go,” Scharf said.

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment is working with more than 500 child care centers throughout Colorado to improve nutrition and physical activity for thousands of Colorado children. “We know obese children often turn into obese adults,” said Dr. Larry Wolk, department executive director and chief medical officer. “If we can help child care providers offer nutritious meals to our youngest Coloradans, we can help stop obesity before it starts.” In Colorado, 8.4 percent of children ages 2-4 are obese. The department’s Child and Adult Care Food Program works with child care centers statewide to promote the positive mealtime environment, good nutrition and active play young children need to grow up healthy. Child care providers who participate in the program follow USDA guidelines that include low-fat milk, fruits, vegetables, grains and lean protein. These guidelines allow children to enjoy a wide variety of food, meet basic nutrition requirements, and lower their consumption of

sodium and saturated and trans fats. With its Healthier Meals Initiative, the Child and Adult Care Food Program implemented higher standards than required, including: • Provide at least one serving of whole grains a day. • Limit processed and prefried meats to once a week. • Limit fruit juice to two servings a week. To help meet these standards, participating child care centers received toolkits that include child-friendly recipes developed by a professional chef, nutritious menus and meal suggestions and an interactive curriculum designed to teach children about the importance of eating nutritious foods. The department also is offering “I Am Moving, I Am Learning” training for child care providers. This obesity prevention program is intended to increase moderate to vigorous physical activity, improve the quality of movement activities, and promote healthy food choices every day. The Child and Adult Care Food Program at the Colorado

Department of Public Health and Environment provides funding for nutritious food to participating child care centers, adult day care centers, homeless and domestic violence shelters, afterschool programs and family day care homes. The program reimburses providers for serving healthy meals and snacks, based on the income of the participants’ families. Foster children, Head Start participants and children whose families participate in the federal Supplemental Nutrition Assistance or Temporary Assistance to Needy Families programs or the Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations are eligible to receive free meals while attending a participating program. Adult day care participants who are beneficiaries of the above federal programs, Supplemental Security Income or Medicaid also are eligible to receive free meals while attending a participating program. For current eligibility rates, visit http://www. fns.usda.gov/cnd/care/ProgramBasics/Payments/Table.pdf. For more information, contact the Child and Adult Care food Program at 303-692-2330.

South metro welcomes expanded Rx compounding center Brown’s debuts 38,000-squarefoot state-of-the-art facility

By Peter Jones So with a pharmacy in almost every grocery store, why would a consumer travel to the expansive Brown’s Compounding Center in Douglas County? “A patient, for example, may be allergic to a dye or a filler in a medication, but needs the medication nonetheless,” said Founder/ Owner Darby Brown. “So we use the raw chemicals to put all those together without the dye or filler.” Likewise, a baby with a heart condition would not be able to swallow the standard-sized capsules filled in 15 minutes at a chain pharmacy. “We’ll take those tablets, crash it up and put it in a suspension they can swallow,” Brown said. “Also, they’re going to be using much smaller doses.” In short, Brown’s is a specialorder pharmacy where each prescription is filled with the hyperspecifics of the individual patient in mind. From psychiatric medications and hormone-replacement drugs to topical creams and suppositories, Brown’s delivers – quite literally – to patients and doctors across the United States. “Consumers are looking for the best alternatives in health care,” Brown said. “This isn’t a new science by any stretch of the imagination. Pharmacists were doing this back in the ‘50s before manufacturing became really prevalent. We’ve carried that same science into the future with a lot more technology.” Most major insurance, excepting Medicaid and Medicare, is accepted. Ten-year-old Brown’s has been successful enough to prompt its expansion last month to a new sprawling location near the intersection of E-470 and Peoria Street.

The new facility has allowed the company to expand its national customer base and increase its state-of-the-art focus. Among many other features, Brown’s new building boasts a special lab designed for creation of high-risk compounds and a hazardous-drug room for chemotherapy and drugs and other biological agents. “There is no other facility I have been in, to date, that would stand head and shoulders to what this facility has,” said Eric Kastango, CEO of Clinical IQ, the company that designed much of this pharmaceutical powerhouse. The 38,000-square-foot solarpowered laboratory, located at 13796 Compark Blvd., is more than 10 times larger than Brown’s previous location in Parker and is believed to be the largest facility of its kind in the nation. Although Brown’s now serves customers in 38 states and growing, local walk-in customers constitute about 50 percent of busi-

ness – and some walk in on four feet. The pharmacy offers handcrafted veterinary medications. “We had a Chihuahua with pulmonary hypertension,” said Brown, a registered pharmacist who got his start with vet meds. “We prepared a medication that contained the same ingredient that’s in Viagra. It actually caused dilation of the vessels so the heart would function.” The dog had no obvious side effects from his medication. Aside from providing another option for the community’s health care, Brown’s has nearly tripled its staff to 96, including 14 pharmacists, as noted by U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman, R-Aurora, at Brown’s March 19 ribbon cutting. “This is really a bright star in what probably has not been the best economic recovery in this country,” he said.

Colorado Secretary of State Scott Gessler and U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman listen at last week’s ribbon cutting for the new Brown’s Compounding Center.

New recycling program to be tested in Denver parks Special recycling containers arrive at Cheesman and Washington Parks  

A new recycling program is making its way to two of Denver’s parks. A pilot program to boost recycling efforts have been launched in Washington Park and Cheesman Park. Denver Public Works and Denver Parks and Recreation are partnering to bring this new recycling program to these regional parks to help keep recyclable materials out of landfills. Thirteen specially designed large purple recycling containers were placed on the perimeter of Washington and Cheesman Parks. Visitors will be able to recycle all of the same materials in these parks that they recycle in their purple carts at home. This includes cans, plastic bottles and containers, cardboard, paper, and many other items. In order for the pilot program to be a success, park goers should be sure to keep all nonrecyclable materials out of the purple containers. Denver is asking park visitors to only put designated recyclables in the purple recycling containers.  Some of the common contami-

Thirteen specially designed large purple recycling containers were placed on the perimeter of Washington and Cheesman parks.

nants to recycling that are not allowed in the purple recycling dumpsters include plastic bags, pet waste, food, food soiled paper and Styrofoam. These items are not recyclable.   The pilot-recycling program

is currently planned to run for six months. If the pilot program is successful, Denver Recycles and Denver Parks and Recreation hope to expand recycling to other city parks in the future. The parks recycling program

is a partnership between the Denver Public Works’ Denver Recycles program and Denver Parks and Recreation. For more information about Denver Recycles’ programs, visit www.DenverGov.org/Denver Recycles.

Summer Youth Employment Program

OPINION

– DENVER –

Future of United States is not Final Four KINDLING

By Robert Sweeney

Looks like the lost airplane may be found in the South China Sea. I’m growing very weary of the ongoing news coverage of this lost airplane. Airport security is massive but not perfect, it will never be totally free of sabotage by those who wish to promote terrorism around the planet, and there are plenty of those

folks still around. Someone commented to me last week that the terrorists wanted to capture the airplane as a potential weapon, could be? Another person told me that Putin had taken Crimea to pay for the $50 billion spent on the Olympics, could be? There are many opinions on geopolitical subjects. It was interesting to see Gov. Romney on Face The Nation Sunday morning. I think we would have a different world situation if he had been elected president. It is what it is. My view is we need to quit being the world’s caretaker and let Europe deal with Russia and many of their European challenges, such as massive Muslim immigration from the Middle East where there are no jobs and opportunities. Those left behind are waging civil wars to attempt to

expand their religious beliefs and to replace their governments. It is hard to tell the good guys from the bad guys. That is equally true in Afghanistan and Iraq. The first lady is touring China and while we can use the public relations, the bill for the trip will give the GOP something major to rail about. It would seem we should go back to the Monroe Doctrine of supporting Mexico and Latin America and concentrating more on our own backyard, including our Canadian friends to the north. Russia is going to do whatever they wish and no military action will be taken to stop whatever they wish to do. There is such a weak response over Crimea that Putin may decide to take back the Ukraine, which I think is highly unlikely. Locally, political parties are hav-

ing their assemblies and nominating candidates for the November election. A Republic depends upon electing representatives to govern us through a democratic process of letting the people decide on leadership. As American citizens, it is our duty to be registered and to be involved in the selection process. It is also important to support those who wish to lead and take the time from their personal lives and families to represent the people. Support can be done by volunteering and by sending contributions to candidates who share your political philosophies. The United States’ future doesn’t depend upon the results of the Final Four, but upon the leadership in our state and nation’s Capitol. We need to get our priorities in order.

‘Don’t be agnostic – be something’ REMARKS

By Mort Marks

“Don’t be agnostic be something,” wrote Robert Frost, and many political activists have acted on those words. In fact, they stopped being agnostics both morally and politically and have actually brought their pro and con religious beliefs into the political world. Most Americans were not prepared for the various conflicts that then followed over specific issues – such as abortion, school prayer and the placing of the Ten Commandments in public schools and buildings – or over the larger question of how far religion should be allowed

Consumer Alert: Avoiding insurance fraud and scams While many people have successfully navigated all of the recent changes regarding health insurance, a time of change also presents an opportunity for scammers and other predators. However, falling victim to fraud isn’t just confined to health insurance. The Colorado Division of Insurance offers these five tips on avoiding insurance misrepresentation, fraud and scams. Know what you’re getting with health insurance. The most common form of health insurance scam is misrepresentation of coverage. This is when a limited benefit or “gap coverage” health plan is sold as full medical insurance, also called comprehensive health insurance. These plans are attractive due to their low

cost, but they do not provide full medical coverage and do not include many of the requirements of the Affordable Care Act, including coverage of the 10 Essential Health Benefits. If you understand the difference between comprehensive and supplemental coverage, you’re better prepared to understand the policy you are buying. Determine if the company is licensed in Colorado, and what kind of insurance it is authorized to sell in Colorado. When buying any kind of insurance, you can confirm if the insurance company is licensed in Colorado and what types of insurance it can sell, by visiting www. dora.colorado.gov/insurance, and clicking on “Find a licensed com-

pany or producer (agent)” in the “Quick Links” section. Know that if an insurance company is licensed in Colorado, it is considered to be in good financial standing and capable of meeting its obligations to pay claims. Understand who is selling you insurance. All agents and brokers that sell insurance products in the state must be certified and licensed by the Division of Insurance. You can always ask to see an insurance agent’s license and can contact DORA’s Division of Insurance to check on the company and the licensing of an agent. You can verify this information at the Division of Insurance website, www.dora.colorado. gov/insurance, by clicking on “Find

a licensed company or producer (agent)” in the “Quick Links” section. You can also check on any official discipline taken against an agent by clicking on the “Enforcement Actions,” also in “Quick Links.” Be suspicious of insurance prices / premiums that are much lower than the competition. Take time to ask questions about the insurance policy and why the premiums are so much lower. Find out what’s covered and what isn’t. Be suspicious if you cannot get answers to these questions or if the company or agent refuses to send you information to review unless you enroll and give them a credit card number.  You should receive paperwork on your policy. If you don’t receive

the paperwork within 60 days after paying your first premium, contact the Division of Insurance at 303894-7490 / 1-800-930-3745 (outside of the Denver metro area). Always check your bills for details of all services and for accuracy. The best way to avoid insurance scams is to do your homework. Make sure you know who is selling you the insurance and that you understand the policy you are buying. Avoid buying insurance from door-to-door salespeople or through unsolicited phone calls. Be aware that scammers may use fake websites to try to get your personal details or your money. Remember, if it seems too good to be true, it probably is.

Your Weekly Horoscope – By Gren Chatworth ARIES (March 21 – April 19) The romance department is knocking this week. You have become infatuated with a new acquaintance. Be careful, as all may not be as rosy as you think. There will be a few disappointments along the way. The word is caution!

LEO (July 23 – Aug 22) You can make a major step in business areas right now. You are responsible to explain all details in this regard to avoid any misunderstandings that might occur. The ball is in your hands and also your success.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 – Dec 21) You will be suddenly filled with energy the next few days. New ideas to take to your boss who will be most impressed with your enthusiasm. Your financial matters that you have been worrying about will suddenly take care of themselves.

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20) Your diplomatic air is paying off for you. People respect you for this and consequently will open up more doors than you can imagine. A call from someone from your past will brighten your week. You will be pleasantly surprised.

VIRGO (Aug 23 – Sept 22) the aspects for your sign are basically good now but there is a slight chance that you might let some romantic interlude cause a ‘clash’ with a loved one. Be careful.

CAPRICORN (Dec 22 – Jan 19) This week will be a little brighter than last, but don’t start celebrating quite yet. There are still some heavy forces working against you, but they’re not as over-whelming as they’ve been.

LIBRA (Sept 23 – Oct 22) Good forces will be noticed during this week, and whatever you do will turn out well for you. Your career and your social life will have a boost as well.

AQUARIUS (Jan 20 – Feb 18) Travel plans might be just as well to put on hold at the present time. In a few days you will have the green light to go, but have your vehicle checked over carefully.

SCORPIO (Oct 23 – Nov 21) Emphasis on your health this week. Scorpio persons love to eat and you will also love to hang around just being comfortable. It may be time for you to embark on a new exercise program. You will feel better in the long run.

PISCES (Feb 19 – March 20) You are a very determined person, but this week you may run up against more than your fair share of obstacles. Keep a tight grip on your temper, and don’t get uptight just because things don’t immediately work out.

GEMINI (May 2 – June 20) A little friction is mounting between you and your life partner pertaining to money matters. Get things out in the open and iron out the difference – otherwise there will be no solution. CANCER (June 21 – July 22) You should be feeling on top of the world with a real glowing attitude toward life. Grasp available opportunities with both hands. You are really going to accomplish something great.

The Sandlot warming up for 2014 Rockies Season By Don Bain When Coors Field opened in 1995, one historic building was left standing on the stadium site. That building became The Sandlot, a brewpub with a long history of crafting many award-winning ales, pilsners, lagers and other variations of the golden libation known as beer. As the Colorado Rockies Season opens on April 4, we checked in with brew master John Legnard to see what Rockies fans have to look forward to this year in the beverage department. “We’re getting everything ready to go,” Legnard began. “We’ve got it down and figured out!” This is his 20th opening day, so he’s become a seasoned player in terms of preparedness for the baseball season. To clarify, there have been 20 opening days in 19 years because there were two the first year the Rockies played – a matter related to professional athletic unions. “We have a Friday afternoon opening this year which is always exciting when it happens,” said Legnard. “The Rockies had a 20th Anniversary last year and

we sold that beer in a commemorative cup, so this year we’ll have a new cup and a new beer called Batter’s I-PA.” The name refers to what’s commonly known as the Batter’s Eye, an area of the centerfield wall right-handed batters tend to point their bat toward before taking the first pitch. The current lineup at The Sandlot is their Blue Moon Spring Seasonal array, but the summer replacements will be coming along when the season gets into full swing. “We have our Spring Program Ale, an amber ale with a combination of crystal malts and orange peel that has a nice flavor; Blue Moon Belgian White and Right Field Red, which is our standby and the only beer that has been out every season, every year. “We have Willisbrau, which is a Schwarz beer, a dark lager. What we’ve found is that springtime can be a little cold in Colorado, demanding something a little darker, a little more full-bodied to start.” This lager is also the Blue Moon Brewery at The Sandlot’s entry into the World Beer Cup –

doubles or triples. A home run to us is something like Blue Moon Belgian White, where everyone who tries it goes, ‘Wow, that beer’s unbelievable.’ Some beers don’t appeal to that wide an audience and so what might be a home run for one person might not be a hit for another. That’s why we try to have a varied lineup of beers.” When they do go off base, it’s only a matter of how much a special ingredient will affect the taste of a beer three weeks later. It’s a question of how much to infuse and when to add it to the process. “If I have a hand full of something and can smell it at arms length, we don’t put a lot of it in, but if I have to rub it together and give it a really good sniff test, it’s going to be more. We generally know how much of the last strong stuff we added, so they are never exactly the same – we use our best guess.” So next time you’re downtown to catch a Rockies game, leave time to stop by The Sandlot and sample a few well-crafted beers. The Sandlot has a record to envy – thousands of hits and no errors. Isn’t that exactly our wish for the Rockies 2014 season?

an international traveling biannual event to be held in Denver this year. Seven thousand attendees will be on hand for the judging of more than 4,000 examples of the brewer’s art. “We will also feature Llana Lager, which is our light lager, a traditional German-style, lighter than a Pilsner, kind of an Oktoberfest season lighter beer.” So how does a master brewer like Legnard know when he’s hit a homer? “It’s not as easy as knocking a ball out of the park,” he replied with a smile. “That’s a really good question. What happens is we look at how we can brew a great beer and we don’t ever say that wasn’t very good – we’re going to trash it – rather it’s this one needs a little work.” The brewing team at The Sandlot has crafted more than 4,000 different beer recipes. They are all on file for review or to be revisited at a later date and possibly improved. It’s a process both brewers and baseball teams constantly pursue – improvement over time. “We know they are going to be a hit, whether they are singles,

2014 Toyota Corolla LE Eco Premium is an amazing new commuter By Don Bain The 2014 Green Car Convoy has completed it’s first two legs, affording the opportunity to give the 2014 Toyota Corolla LE Eco Premium a spirited cross-country tryout and a sure sign the Denver Auto Show will soon convene. This new Eco model has a Valvematic engine which boosts the efficiency of the 1.8 liter fourcylinder DOHC 16-valve power plant to a remarkable degree. We had the pleasure of riding with Toyota product training specialist Randy Hunt, who was able to simply explain this complicated technology. At high speeds the fuel-injected engine can maintain the throttle valve at a slightly open position, allowing valve lifters to reduce their motion from 9mm to 1mm. This efficient and constant mix of fuel and air boosts mileage by 4 mpg, while enhancing power and responsiveness simultaneously. The engine is connected to a “stepped” CVT, which means it rarely has the acceleration lag sometimes noticeable with variable speed transmissions. The 2014 Toyota Corolla LE accelerates well onto the freeway and tracks remarkable well at 75 mph. The weather on March 7 was marked by a cold and persistent drizzle that sometimes froze into snowflakes that mostly melted upon reaching the pavement on the first day of the Green Car — Continued from page 10 — FOR PUBLICATION REQUIRED PURSUANT TO 10-3109(1), C.R.S.

Convoy. While listening to Robb Thomas singing along with Carlos Santana’s brilliant guitar work, we began to notice the surprising number of amenities in this entry-level Toyota. The obvious things are the comfortable, bolstered front sports seats, covered in an aesthetically pleasing simulated leather with two-levels of heating; power moonroof, navigation and rearview camera; six-speaker audio system with full connectivity and the Entune suite of

phone-based apps. Add to those the highly intuitive climate controls, articulated steering wheel and all season tires, which helped us keep traction through a variety of road conditions. In fact, on the second leg of the convoy, we drove to Frisco and made excellent time getting 30.2-mpg climbing up to the Tunnel at full throttle. After visits to Eagle-Vail and Breckenridge, we headed back down to Denver on I-70. Sometime after 2 p.m. the

inches of fresh powdery flakes on the road. The front-wheel-drive vehicle navigated the winding, snow-covered roads with great ease and relative speed under the expert direction of Hunt. Driving around the Front Range a few days previous, we got 34.2-mpg with numerous periods of idling to keep warm on the frosty day. The Corolla LE is not going to impress anyone with its zeroto-60 or quarter-mile speeds, but that is not its raison d’etre. This is a car for someone more concerned with reliable safe transportation and economy – and with an eye for value. This car as driven has a delivered price of $23,200, including $2,170 worth of options. It is rated 30-mpg in town and 40-mpg on the highway and with green driving habits can probably do better. It is cheaper to buy, less expensive to operate and better equipped than a good many of the choices available today, representing savings you can take to the bank. If you need a commuter car, the 2014 Toyota Corolla LE Eco Premium deserves serious consideration.

Beginning next week, the district will officially open its second and much larger recording studio at Southglenn Library at The Streets at SouthGlenn development. The new studio is the latest example of how libraries are redefining themselves in the face of new technologies and patron expectations. “We’re trying to work in a role that will access technology that is out of reach for most people financially,” said Nicolle Davies, the district’s executive director. “This is a great example of how ALD is bridging that gap for people in the community. … No longer are libraries dusty warehouses of information, but rather transformative community centers where patrons can experience and use cutting-edge technology.” The Southglenn facility is the district’s second all-purpose studio, but it will not be the last in its system of eight libraries, Davies said. Like the district’s original studio at Centennial’s Smoky Hill, the Southglenn facility is equipped with a high-definition video camera, microphones and all the software needed to record and edit audio and video content. There is also 3D capability and a “green screen” for virtual studio backgrounds. While the relatively compact workspace at Smoky Hill has been able to service little more than three people working on the same project, the new Southglenn

studio has three stations outside the actual soundproof room, each designed for an assortment of other high-tech production work – and just plain fun. After all, a virtual-reality rollercoaster may not do much for the production on your song or school project, but it can’t hurt. “What’s great about that is it’s got sensors that react to your movement. You look up, you’ll see the sky. A lot of people try to stand and immediately sit down,” explained Oli Sanidas, the district’s director of digital services. For those who find the mere mention of high technology dizzying, help is available through Arapahoe’s Book-a-Librarian program, by which library-goers can pre-arrange help from a knowledgeable staff member. “Our goal is to expose people to the technology, whether they know what they’re doing or not,” supervisor Kevin Maas said. Even the tech-savvy staff is green around the edges when it comes to some of the equipment, such as the studio’s digital DJ scratch pad. “We’re trying to figure that out,” Sanidas said. While the 3D printer and soundproof four-track recording studio may come in handy for school projects, a musician’s audition or vanity ventures of all stripes, the most popular feature is expected to be the station where patrons can restore and dub their old VHS tapes to digital files and DVDs. “We’re anticipating a lot of people wanting to use the VCR to digitize home movies. That is directly from patron request,” Sanidas said. Vinyl fans can also digitize their old albums, clean up old photos or scan their slides and photo negatives. Southglenn Library will formally introduce the new studio to the public with its Tour de Tech open house on Saturday, May 17, 1-4 p.m.

Centura Health expanding to north Denver Centura Health announced plans for three new health and wellness centers in north metro Denver. Centura Health will build new 10,800-square-foot health and wellness centers in Dacono and Thornton and renovate an existing building in Westminster to a 46,000-square-foot health and wellness center. The new health and wellness centers, opening in fall, will incorporate the key com-

ponents of optimal health – primary care, specialty services, diagnostic imaging and wellness services – to provide consumers with convenient, integrated, high-value care. The centers will co-locate providers and services to promote care coordination with multiple access points, offering the community enhanced convenience to health care in a service-friendly environment, for an affordable cost. The

goal is to help consumers utilize the health care system more appropriately and manage their health from a wellness perspective. Through this “health neighborhood” approach, Centura Health is moving past the bricks and mortar model of traditional, reactive health care, shifting the entire paradigm of health care delivery to meet the population health needs, bringing greater value to consumers in

Colorado and Western Kansas. This physician-led, team-medicine approach focuses on promoting quality care by utilizing evidencebased medicine and best practices to offer consumers the Total Health Solution. Funding for the three projects is made possible by Centura Health’s co-sponsors. The Dacono and Thornton locations, $7 million each, are funded by

Catholic Health Initiatives, and funding for the $15.6 million Westminster center is made possible by Adventist Health System. Construction on these projects begins this month and the centers are located at I-25 and County Road 8 (Summit Boulevard) in Dacono, 128th and Colorado Boulevard in Thornton and Highway 36 and Church Ranch Boulevard in Westminster.
