My Favorite Things

NOVEMBER 2017

A

s the last golden Aspen leaves hang on for the home stretch of fall at lower altitude, the sight of spinning ski lifts in the high country signals that winter is definitely on its way. Here are a few of my favorite things for this beautiful season of the year:

1. Nothing says fall like flannel, and Topo Designs (Colorado company) nails it in this department. | 2. Whether picking tunes around a campfire with friends or just trying to figure out some Jerry licks on Youtube, I try to keep a guitar close by whenever possible.  | 3.  Fall brings incredible opportunities to spot wildlife up in the mountains, or right outside your back door. A hot cup of coffee in one hand and a quality set of binoculars in the other is my idea of a perfect Saturday morning. | 4.  Even at age 40, I’m still a pyro at heart.

done and save the hair on your fingers when trying to light those hard to reach areas. | 5. With the explosion of IPA’s on the craft beer scene over the last few years, I rarely find myself drinking anything that is not loaded with hops. That said, a well-balanced stout or porter cooler still beckons to me at this time of year. Avery’s barrel-aged Coconut Porter is a perfect evening sipper while watching the native pinewood pop in the fireplace.

Children’s House Preschool, a red school barn, stands proudly in North Boulder. Elaine McCarthy and Michael Knuckey, both award-winning teachers, own and operate this experiential option for preliminary education. On a typical day, the children arrive and the first hour is an opportunity for them to identify how they’ve shown up. Do they want to paint? Do they want to rest? This time is dedicated to supporting what they need in order to transition into the rest of their day efficiently. Next, is circle time where all of

but also the freedom to decide how their plot-line goes. What the Children’s House is providing is a balance of both structure and play. With a diverse population of students, it is a method of learning that everyone understands. When asked if the model is sustainable on a large scale, McCarthy affirms that all of the resources are free, that imagination and magic can be utilized anywhere. Knuckey tells me about how much of his work is focused on filing for grants, and thankfully, Boulder supports their mission. Thanks to the sugar tax, the Children’s House will be able to plant their own garden on site and hopefully, in the future, remodel their small kitchen to be a more workable and interactive space for the students. The Children’s House encourages children to view the world with new imaginative eyes in hopes that we will have leaders that understand how to discern for the benefit of us all.

MOTHER HOUSE JESSICA DOERSCHLAG

Jessica Doerschlag is a resident of the Mother House. Eight months into her pregnancy, newly sober and homeless, she applied ruthlessly to be a part of this safe haven. I found out later that being accepted into the house is no easy feat. There are currently only five other women. The Mother House is a support center that demands self-sustainment.  “Goal orientation matters, ambition matters… you need to want the help and want to work,” Doerschlag tells me. Each member must maintain a job outside of the facility where they are required to work 20 hours a week. While staying in the house, the women set weekly goals, attend speaker presentations and do various activities such as meditation. Mother House also provides strategic and individual case management support. Doerschlag relays the experience of going to the hospital with Mother House to witness a live birth, which made her anxieties about the process diminish. In addition to emotional support, the women receive bus passes, diapers, food stamps and child-care covered through C-Cap once the baby is born. Through state acknowledgment and support, Mother House can support these women. This process alleviates the cyclical nature of children born into homelessness. The hope is that each child will have the opportunity to break free from preexisting and compromising circumstances. Mother-House.org CONTINUED >

BELOVED COMMUNITY VILLAGE AMANDA MACK

Beloved Community Village is a neighborhood of eleven tiny homes and fifteen residents addressing the issue of homelessness that is present in both Denver and Boulder counties. Tiny homes provide relatively low cost and low maintenance design. Right now Beloved Community Village has been running for three months but, due to zoning laws, they are required to relocate every six months. This means more money, more time, and obviously, more displacement. Amanda, a former resident of Beloved Community Village is now a volunteer with the Denver Homeless Out Loud and a board member of the Colorado Village Collaborative. Before becoming involved she was “homeless and alone.” The community provided a platform for her to grow. Through the self-governing nature of the village, she  eventually stepped into roles that make decisions for the community. “I feel like I matter again, and more importantly, that I’m a part of something else that matters much more,” she says. The community also provides food, employment aid, transit, Medicaid  and laundry. These supportive measures further encourage residents to go into the city and build a sustainable life. Overall, the idea is to eliminate the ‘us’ and ‘them’ mindset by providing the foundation that most of us are gifted to have. The issues of homelessness are complex, in need of readdressing, and Beloved Community Village provides hope that they will be. BelovedCommunityVillage.WordPress.com

HUMANWIRE ANDREW BARON

Andrew Baron of Humanwire wonders aloud, “what disconnected us from the Eastern world… was it movies, war?” He’s wondering as a father of a half-Syrian child and a husband of a Lebanese wife. When watching the horrific footage of children washing up on shore due to displacement, he saw the child as his own and knew he must help. Humanwire is an effort to obliterate our misconceptions about the Eastern world. It does so by directly connecting hosts to children in need. On October 11th, 2017 Humanwire successfully transitioned 250 Syrian students from preparatory school to public school. This is called the Butterfly Effect. Thanks to a grant from the RCRP and the generous hosts, Humanwire was able to create a  program, busing kids to and from school for five classes a day, to prepare children for school that would have foregone education otherwise. “Our job at Humanwire is to take orders...,” Baron says.  Hosts pay for the schooling, Humanwire provides options. The grant from the RCRP gives Baron confidence that future projects will be supported by other sponsors. Humanwire is a mutual exchange. Hosts provide financial support but in return get an intimate glimpse into the refugee's lives. What they find is that the “culture gap is silly,” as Baron puts it. It eliminates misconceptions through exposure. We get to understand what Baron did, which is “you often see the stresses of grown adults in their eyes,” and that everyone desires the same things. By disillusioning ourselves to their culture, we can prevent suffering.

Expedition

Amundsen, an annual 100-kilometer crosscountry skiing race that took place in Norway. At the end of the race, Dan and Elaine placed second in the co-ed division. HOW DID YOU GO ABOUT TRAINING FOR SUCH A PHYSICALLY DEMANDING RACE?

The race course is a vast, treeless plateau called Hardangervidda. The race appealed to us because we're not particularly fast but we can go a long way. We also were drawn to the adventure side of the event - the wild terrain, the potential for multiple overnights in a climate that is as close as you can get to Greenland or Antarctica without going there. In the summer we mountain bike, hike, run and roller ski, but this would not adequately prepare us for the sled weight. So starting in November, we loaded up our sleds with weight and pulled them up and down mountains. HOW DID THE RACE GO? WERE THERE ANY UNEXPECTED CHALLENGES?

Placing wise we did quite well, coming in 2nd overall in the co-ed division and becoming the first non-Norwegians to ever podium in the race. Elaine was something like the 6th fastest woman in the entire event. Looking back we probably did as well or better than we could have hoped, but there are always things you'd like to do better. It's a very complex race, so while our physical shape was quite good, thanks in large part to training all winter at 10,000 feet and above, our inexperience and rookie status caused us to make more mistakes than normal. YOU LIVE IN ELDORA, CO, WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR FAVORITE THINGS TO DO IN BOULDER COUNTY?

In the winter, the Indian Peaks provide alpine touring, telemark and nordic touring options galore. We spend 125-150 days a year skiing in these mountains. The Nordic Center at Eldora is a Boulder County gem, with some beautiful trails and it is a great place to get an amazing workout in just an hour. We'll often go up there before work. CONTINUED >

WINTER FANATICS (CON TI N U ED)

ROCCO GRIMALDI Rocco Grimaldi was a late-season call-up to the Avalanche from the affiliated San Antonio Rampage. This year, he made it through to the last rounds of cuts of the preseason for the Avalanche. Only time will tell if Grimaldi is called back up to the Avalanche again this year, but one thing is for sure: no matter where he’s playing, hockey is a huge part of his life. WHERE IS YOUR FAVORITE CITY THAT YOU’VE GOTTEN TO VISIT FOR A GAME?

Oh, my goodness, I’ve been so many places, that is such a hard question. I’ve been to 44 states and ten countries. Obviously, Denver’s cool because of the scenery and mountains. I played in Portland, Maine, a couple of years ago and it was a surprisingly cool town on the water. WHAT IS A MEMORABLE PLAY THAT YOU’VE HAD THROUGHOUT YOUR CAREER?

In 2013 we had the World Junior Championship, and Team USA was in the gold medal championship against Sweden, and we were down 1 – nothing and I scored two goals in the second period, and then we won 3 – 1. So it was pretty memorable to do something like that for your country, to win a gold medal for the USA.

CONNIE SCIOLINO Connie Sciolino is many things. A business owner, a wife and mother, and an athlete. From skiing to ice climbing, Scolino is about as active as they come. She’s also the owner of the Alpine Training Center, where she helps others get the strength and endurance necessary to be active all winter long. IF SOMEONE HASN’T BEEN ACTIVE IN A WHILE, WHAT IS THE FIRST THING TO DO TO GET BACK IN SHAPE?

The first thing anyone should do is develop an aerobic base. So that means start walking if that’s the level you’re at, or hiking if you can. If you’re farther along than that, go jogging or running. It just gets you moving and going from sitting all the time to wanting to do something. Starting with only thirty minutes, three or four times a week, and then building on that base. That’s the best thing you can do. THE GYM IS INDOORS, SO HOW DO YOU GO ABOUT TRAINING FOR THINGS THAT ARE ON SNOW, OR ON THE ROCKS?

My job is to get people strong and increase their overall conditioning. That’s my goal in the gym. I want to train specific muscle sets and how they move. The best example is the ice climbers: they bring their ice climbing tools, and they hang and move on our “ice climbing” wall. And when they’re out, that’s when they practice the technical aspects. WHAT IS ABOUT SKIING THAT YOU ENJOY THE MOST?

I love being out in the mountains. That’s the first thing that drew me in, was being outside. For me, it’s the whole learning process of skiing. Even now I’m still learning, and I think it’s a sport that you can keep working on your entire life. CONTINUED >

WINTER FANATICS (CON TI N U ED)

TREVOR GAGSTETTER For Denver-local Trevor Gagstetter, skiing is a part of his life year-round. From Vail to St. Mary’s Glacier and all the way down under in New Zealand, he hasn’t let a month slip by without skiing since September of 1997. WAS IT A CONSCIOUS GOAL TO GO SKIING EVERY MONTH FOR 20 YEARS?

Yeah, initially it started out as wanting to ski in the summer months and then realizing that I could ski every month if I wanted to. It started before the streak started, in ’96. I wanted to go skiing on my birthday, which is in August. So I had to figure out if you could do that, and I learned you could go up to St. Mary’s [Glacier] and ski year round. So that’s when it occurred to me that I could ski year round. FROM THERE, GAGSTETTER DECIDED HE WANTED TO TRY TO SKI EVERY MONTH FOR A YEAR. SINCE THEN, HE'S SURPASSED HIS ORIGINAL GOAL 20 TIMES. BUT IT WASN'T ALWAYS AN EASY TASK. RIGHT AT THE BEGINNING OF HIS STREAK, GAGSTETTER FACED CHALLENGES THANKS TO MOTHER NATURE.

When I was a freshman at CU in the dorms, and I had taken a bunch of my friends up to ski in August. It was sunny, and we had a great time. And fast forward to September 30th, and I set the day to go up, and everybody bails on me because it had been raining all day. So I’m sitting there thinking, “Man, am I really going to go do this?” And something in me just told me that I had to go up. SO IS THIS STREAK GOING TO KEEP GOING? IS THERE AN END-POINT OR ARE YOU GOING FOR A 30-YEAR STREAK?

It’s gonna keep going… Learning how to ski, doing Professional Ski Instructor Association training has helped me a lot. Learning the proper techniques for traversing snow has been crucial to me keeping myself healthy. If you know how to control your center of gravity and your speed at all times, you’ll never fall, and you’ll never hurt yourself. 44

ane Hiett, a Seattle native, founded Chef Dane’s Kitchen in Denver this past June. Hiett’s passion for cooking began as a child when he frequently would follow his

mother around the kitchen as she cooked. “She always cooked these awesome meals for us!” Dane remembers fondly. The food itself, as well as the way his mother created a space for his family to come together and relax, left a lasting impression on Hiett, and convinced him that some of the best memories are made when friends and family come together to eat. Hiett’s dedication to cooking has taken him to many different places within the food industry – from dishwashing to serving as a consultant chef for Food Network’s

LUXURY DINING IN THE COMFORT OF YOUR LIVING ROOM

Restaurant: Impossible. Hiett first began working in restaurants when he was 15-yearsold as a dishwasher and hasn’t left the industry since. “I can’t see myself ever sitting behind a desk,” says Hiett. “Cooking can be a stressful job, but it’s fun and leaves you with a sense of accomplishment at the end of the day.”

Since his dishwashing days, Hiett spent eight years working at the Four Seasons Hotel Restaurant in Santa Barbara, CA and Vail, CO. After his time at the Four Seasons, Hiett co-founded Red Maple Catering in Vail. With the dream of bringing small-scale, restaurant-quality catering into people’s homes, Hiett then moved on to found Chef Dane’s Kitchen in Denver. The mission of Chef Dane’s Kitchen is to bring fine dining into people’s homes, creating dining experiences that allow people to relax without the hassle of going out, drink their own wine without worrying about alcohol markups, and enjoy the company of friends and family in an intimate setting. During their Private Dinner events, Chef Dane’s Kitchen takes care of everything from setting the table to cleaning up after the meal, making dinner as stress-free and enjoyable as possible. Hiett is also excited to be offering both holiday cooking classes as well as Thanksgiving catering services this season. In his holiday cooking classes, Hiett plans to offer a mix of traditional and less traditional dishes, making the classes an opportunity to perfect holiday staples while also bringing something novel to the Thanksgiving table. With their Thanksgiving catering services, the company can drop off prepped meals with instructions for warming the food or stay throughout the entire meal and take care of table settings, washing dishes, and all the other tasks that contribute to a successful Thanksgiving dinner. In keeping with their mission, Chef Dane’s Kitchen will help make your Thanksgiving a relaxing time to simply enjoy being surrounded by those that mean the most.    ChefDanesKitchen.com    50

LAMBORGHINI DENVER Authorized Dealer The Huracán Performante has reworked the concept of super sports cars and taken the notion of performance to levels never seen before. The vehicle has been re-engineered in its entirety, as regards its weight, engine power, chassis and above all by introducing an innovative system of active aerodynamics: ALA. The combination of these modifications and the skilled work of the team at Lamborghini, took the Huracán Performante to complete a lap at Nürburgring in 00:06:52:01 setting a new record for best lap and becoming the fastest standard production car at the Shrine of Speed.
