Kids fight for rescue dogs, cats to be state pets By Colleen O’Connor The Denver Post

It was like a dogfight at the Senate Education Committee on Thursday afternoon. The battle to make dogs and cats adopted from shelter and rescue centers the official state pet pitted schoolkids against professional lobbyists representing purebred dog clubs, retailers, groomers and dog-show organizers. The bill ultimately passed, 6-3, but there were moments when the students from Peakview School in Walsenburg thought their project, designed to help them learn about the legislative process, could go either way. So many people arrived to testify that stragglers were left to find seats in the overflow room. Dog leashes stretched across the packed hallway, obstacles for the unwary, and piercing barks interrupted testimony. Griffin Kerr, the 3-year-old son of the bill’s PETS » 9A

“We’re going to make history” By Lynn Bartels The Denver Post

Amid cheers and tears, Gov. John Hickenlooper on Thursday signed a civil-unions bill into law, erasing a generation of anguish for supporters of gay rights in what once was dubbed “the hate state.” “Unbelievable,” Hickenlooper said, looking at the gays and straight allies who were crammed into the History Colorado Center

to watch history being made. Sen. Pat Steadman of Denver, one of four gay Democrats who sponsored Senate Bill 11, recalled that “painful” night when voters approved Amendment 2, which prohibited laws from protecting gays from discrimination. “I was there on election night in 1992 with many of you, and I see your faces in this room,” he said. “That was a very tragic moment, and CIVIL » 12A

Colorado corrections officials are investigating whether a paroled white-supremacist prison-gang member at the center of the investigation into the execution-style slaying of state prison chief Tom Clements was ordered by the gang to do a “hit,” a source told The Denver Post on Thursday. “What’s not known is whether this was ordered or a crime of opportunity,” said a Department of Corrections employee who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

COLORADO ROUNDUP

Deputy cleared in woman’s death MOM, 30, FIRED AT MAN’S PARTNER AS PAIR TRIED TO SERVE WARRANT By Sadie Gurman The Denver Post

A Denver sheriff’s deputy was justified when he killed a woman who shot at his partner during a January gunfight, Denver District Attorney Mitch Morrissey said Thursday. Deputy Eric Givens “acted quickly in an untenable situation” Jan. 30, when he fatally shot Ronette Morales on the balcony of her apartment at 305 Park Ave. West, Morrissey wrote in a letter announcing his decision not to file charges. Morales fired a shot that narrowly missed the head of Givens’ partner, Donald Travis. But a bullet that struck Travis in the hand came from Givens’ gun, Morrissey’s investigation showed. Denver police at the time said it was Morales’ gunfire that hit Travis. The deputies had gone to the apartment to serve Morales, 30, a warrant on burglary and other charges. A maintenance man told them she never used the front door, preferring instead to climb over a back balcony. Travis and the man tried to coax Morales to the front door. She hung up on them when they phoned her apartment. As the deputies were discussing their options, Travis saw Morales step onto the back balcony, according to the account documented in Morrissey’s decision letter. Travis climbed up to arrest her, noticing that her 5-year-old daughter and 1-year-old son were between them. As Morales turned toward him, Travis said, he could see her clutching what he soon realized was a gun. “About that time she pulled the trigger,” Travis told investigators. “The bullet, I remember moving my head just a little bit and I could feel it, like, the concussion and the powder from the gun as it went off.” Givens, who was on a ledge that led to the balcony, said he saw his partner fall and, believing Morales was armed, started firing, “shooting high” to avoid the children, who were still on the patio when she fell. Givens fired to “defend against the imminent deadly threat” he and Travis faced, Morrissey said in the letter. “Deputy Givens’ judgment that it was necessary to fire his pistol to save the life of his partner and his own cannot be questioned,” Morrissey said. “This was an encounter where, had he not taken the action he did, his partner would likely have been shot by Morales at close range.”

Parents part of species-survival plan

Blossom, a rare gerenuk, first born at Denver Zoo By Ryan Parker Denver Post staff

A gerenuk has been born at the Denver Zoo for the first time. Possible through the Association of Zoos and Aquariums Species Survival Plan, Blossom was born March 6 to parents Woody and Layla, zoo officials announced Thursday. The survival plan is a program utilized by zoos to ensure captive populations of endangered species remain healthy, said Tiffany Barnhart, Denver Zoo spokeswoman. “The process of the program is not a simple one,” Barnhart said. “It’s very precise.” A gerenuk is a small antelope from semiarid areas of eastern Africa. The name means “giraffenecked” in the Somali language, the zoo said. Adults are 3½ feet tall at the shoulder with long, thin necks. They weigh between 60 and 100 pounds. Gerenuks can stand on their hind legs to reach food from tree limbs. Woody came from the Los Angeles Zoo and Layla from Disney’s Animal Kingdom as part of a species-survival plan. According to the Los Angeles Zoo, gerenuks are listed as “near threatened” by the International Union for Conservation of Nature. Gerenuks are declining in number because they are hunted for their skins. They typically live in the dry, brushy areas of Somalia, eastern Ethiopia and Kenya. Other Denver Zoo animals born through the survival plan include Makar, an Amur leopard, was born on April 25. It was the first birth of his species at the zoo since 1996. Amur leopards are nearly extinct in the wild, with a small number — fewer than 40 — remaining in eastern Russia. “It came to the point where the SSP realized that before long the zoo Amur leopard population would be too old to sustain itself through breeding,” said BJ Schoeberl, curator of primates and carnivores, in the zoo’s “On the Wild Side.”

Skier’s body had gunshot wound, officials say The missing skier whose body was found Wednesday had been shot, the Pitkin County Sheriff’s Department said Thursday. A gun was found with the body. Authorities had been looking for 55-year-old Aspen resident and wine consultant Jeff Walker, but the identity of the body was not confirmed Thursday, and whether the death was a suicide or homicide also has not been determined, according to the Sheriff’s Department. An autopsy is planned for Friday. The Sheriff’s Department said Wednesday the body appeared to be dressed in what Walker was wearing when he was last seen hiking the Highland Bowl on March 7. The body was found Wednesday in the Grey Area on Aspen Highlands by a snowboarder who was searching for Walker in the area.

Some still evacuated after gas explosion Some of the people evacuated after a natural-gas explosion Tuesday were being allowed to return to their homes Thursday, but the Grand Junction Daily Sentinel reported that others were told they would have to stay away at least one more day. Three people were injured and two of them were hospitalized after the explosion. Xcel Energy said a construction crew unaffiliated with the utility had been working in the area when the explosion destroyed two homes Tuesday. The homes were left to burn to use up leaking gas.

Man who died skiing was prof at Arkansas

Blossom is the first gerenuk to be born at the Denver Zoo. The female calf was born March 6. Members of the small antelope species are known to be shy, but visitors may be able to catch a glimpse of Blossom in her yard now. Provided by Denver Zoo Kimbo, the female elephant acquired by the Denver Zoo last December, arrived through a recommendation of the survival plan. Kimbo, 42, brings the elephant

The University of Arkansas says the Fayetteville man who died this week while skiing in northern Colorado was a renowned professor of chemistry and biochemistry. Bob Gawley was skiing with friends in the Steamboat ski area when he collapsed and later died. Authorities believe Gawley may have suffered a heart attack. Gawley served as an educator and researcher for more than 35 years and was chairman of UA’s chemistry and biochemistry department. University of Arkansas System president Donald Bobbitt said Gawley was an exceptional chemist with a skill for helping others excel. Gawley is survived by a wife and two sons.

DNA led to kidnapping and sex assault charges against 43-year-old Eddie Simon in a 12-year-old case involving a 20-year-old woman in Denver. The woman was leaving her parents’ home in the early morning hours of Feb. 24, 2001, when a man pulled her into his car, took her to a remote area at the old Lowry Air Force Base site and assaulted her at knifepoint. She was able to escape, but no arrest was ever made. When Simon was arrested on drug distribution charges in Denver earlier this year, authorities took his DNA in accordance to Katie’s Law, which took effect in Colorado in September 2010 and requires testing when an adult is charged with a felony.

The University of Colorado student who was arrested this week after a campus employee said she saw him sell a prescription pill to another student for $5 in the school’s Center for Community was formally charged with a felony drug count Thursday. Nicholas Busbey, 23, was charged with one count of distribution of a Schedule II controlled substance, a Class 3 felony. According to CU police, an employee in the lobby of the Center for Community said she saw Busbey sell Marshall Pedder, 21, a tablet of Vyvanse, a stimulant used to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder that also can be used as a “study aid” to help keep students up and alert as they prepare for exams.

Colorado Springs police issued an arrest warrant Thursday for Preston Deangalo Johnson, 28, on suspicion of first-degree murder. The warrant was issued two days after police found 26-year-old Ivan Ortiz shot to death in a townhouse at 2521 King St. According to the affidavit, a 911 call was received at 4:36 p.m. Tuesday in which a man reported hearing five shots, a female screaming and a vehicle leaving the area. Ortiz died at the scene of a gunshot wound. There are open arrest warrants on Johnson through El Paso County on suspicion of driving under restraint, speeding and drug possession, according to court records.

Federal prosecutors have reached agreements with Arapahoe County and the city of Englewood to resolve allegations that deaf arrestees, victims and witnesses haven’t been able to effectively communicate with lawenforcement officers. Arapahoe County and Englewood have agreed to each pay $35,000 to plaintiffs who sued over the complaints. The Justice Department said Thursday that both agreed to enter contracts with qualified sign language interpreters to ensure they are readily available; train staff on the Americans with Disabilities Act; appoint Americans with Disabilities Act coordinators and take other actions.

Enforcement of the ordinance banning smoking along Boulder’s Pearl Street Mall will begin April 1, city officials announced Thursday as they began rolling out the first “No Smoking” signs along the pedestrian mall late this week. The ordinance banning smoking on the Pearl Street Mall between 11th and 15th streets went into effect Jan. 18, but officers have been giving out warnings because the signs were not ready to be put up due to a delay in manufacturing. Boulder County also has banned smoking on the lawn of the county courthouse along the mall. Contractors installed the first signs Thursday with the remainder due to go up early Friday.

Bills increase Pot-store rules debated oil-field fines, inspections

Two lawmakers question task-force suggestions on business model

By John Ingold The Denver Post

By Mark Jaffe The Denver Post

Bills raising the fines on oil and gas operation violations and increasing inspections in the oil fields were cleared by Colorado legislative committees Thursday. On an 8-5 vote, the House Transportation and Energy Committee approved House Bill 1267, which for the first time in 58 years increases fines for oil and gas rule violations. Senate Bill 202, which increases the number of inspectors so every well in the state is checked once a year, was approved 3-2 by the Senate Agriculture, Natural Resources and Energy Committee. The bills are part of an expected volley of legislation sparked by increased Front Range drilling — particularly near suburban communities. “The conversation around safe production of oil and gas is of greater magnitude as many more Coloradans are affected,” said Senate Agriculture Committee Chairwoman Gail Schwartz, D-Snowmass. The House bill, sponsored by Rep. Mike Foote, D-Lafayette, increases daily fines for violations — from poor housekeeping on sites to leaks and spills — to a maximum of $15,000 a day from $1,000. The bill also removes a $10,000 cap on a fine and sets a floor of a $5,000 fine for “adverse environmental impacts.” “This bill is about accountability and taking responsibility,” Foote told the committee. Foote noted that Colorado has one of the lowest fine schedules among oil- and gasproducing states. Texas has a $10,000 a day fine. North Dakota’s maximum is $12,500 a day. Neither state has a cap on fines. Bob Randall, the deputy director of the Colorado Depart-

ment of Natural Resources, and Jim Cole, representing the Colorado Oil and Gas Association, a trade group, testified that they supported raising fines. But Randall said that he wasn’t sure “this bill gets it exactly right.” The Senate bill requires every oil and gas location to be inspected annually and would raise money through a levy on the value of oil and gas produced in the state. “People need to have confidence we are doing our job as a state,” said Matt Jones, D-Louisville, sponsor of the inspection bill. A fiscal analysis estimates it will take 65 new Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission employees at a cost of $8.2 million to meet the bill’s goals. The commission is responsible for inspecting wells, enforcing rules and imposing fines. “We need this industry, but we need to do it well,” Longmont Mayor Dennis Coombs testified. “More inspectors is a great idea.” Longmont is being sued by the state for adopting its own strict drilling for adopting a ban on hydrofracturing — a key technique in developing wells. Matt Lepore, director of the oil and gas commission, said more staff would be welcome, but he was not sure mandating an inspection of every facility every year would be effective. The Colorado Petroleum Association opposed the bill. “We don’t oppose more inspectors; we simply object to this device,” said Stan Dempsey, the association’s president. Each bill now goes to finance committee in their chambers for review.

Colorado lawmakers yanked and tugged at the threads of the state’s proposals for regulating recreational marijuana on Thursday, as one legislator hinted to his colleagues that pulling too hard could unravel the whole thing. At its second meeting, the legislature’s joint marijuana committee returned again to the question of how to structure the marijuana stores that Colorado voters authorized in November. A task force that suggested policies for lawmakers recommended the industry be vertically integrated as are medical-marijuana businesses — meaning stores would have to grow what they sell. But two lawmakers questioned whether that runs against the intent of the marijuana-legalization measure, Amendment 64, which doesn’t prescribe a system where growers are linked to retailers. The recommendation would also provide a one-year window where only people who currently own medical-marijuana businesses would be allowed to apply to run recreational marijuana shops. Rep. Brian DelGrosso, R-Loveland, said he worries such a restriction “gives existing businesses a foothold, essentially a monopoly” on the new industry. Other lawmakers raised concerns about one proposed requirement that people live in Colorado for two years before they be allowed to own a recreational marijuana business and about another that would

Bruce Carter, co-owner of Nature’s Kiss, tends to plants in this 2012 photo. The Colorado legislature’s joint marijuana committee Thursday debated how stores would be regulated, including the relationship between growers and retailers. Hyoung Chang, Denver Post file block people convicted of a drug felony from ever owning a marijuana business. Rep. Dan Pabon, a Denver Democrat who served on the task force and helped write the proposals, said the goal is to get the regulations running quickly and to prevent leakage of marijuana from the regulated system into the black market. For that reason, the task force borrowed heavily from medical-marijuana law and made selective compromises. “I hope that the committee is appreciating the interconnectedness of all these recommendations,” Pabon said. “If you push on one lever, it pushes on another piece of the overall package.”

Sen. Cheri Jahn, a Wheat Ridge Democrat and another task force member, said some of the regulations — such as vertical integration — would be re-evaluated after a few years. Despite the extensive debate Thursday morning, the committee did not take any formal votes. During a straw vote, a majority of committee members supported requiring recreational marijuana stores to have to grow only 70 percent of what they sell under a possible vertical integration model. The remaining 30 percent could be bought from other stores, in a model similar to medical marijuana. The committee’s next meet-

ing is Friday at 1:30 p.m. The group has until the end of the month to work the task force’s 58 recommendations into a bill, which would have to clear the entire legislature by the end of the session on May 8. The state must begin taking applications for recreational marijuana stores this fall. The first shops could open around Jan. 1, 2014.

Lawyers chastised in jail death case By Tom McGhee The Denver Post

A federal court judge in Denver chided both sides in a dispute over the release of information in the case of a homeless preacher who died in the Denver jail after being restrained by deputies, saying that lawyers for his family and Denver should “act like professionals.” Attorneys for the family of Marvin Booker asked U.S. District Court Judge R. Brooke Jackson to authorize them to release documents and information to the FBI and Department of Justice in February. The information is designated confidential under a court order, according to the motion filed by the Booker family lawyer, Darold Killmer ,last month. “It does not appear to the court that counsel have conferred reasonably or effectively,” Jackson wrote in his order denying the motion, filed in U.S District Court on Tuesday. “They both seem to be saying that they want the FBI and the DOJ to have access to whatever records they want, but for rea-

.

sons that escape this court they have brought a seemingly needless and ridiculous dispute or non-dispute to the court for some resolution that also escapes this court,” he wrote. Jackson wrote that it isn’t clear to him that the FBI has been unable to obtain what the agency wants. “Confer, act like professionals, and come to the court if, and when, you have a necessary and meaningful dispute to present.” Tom Rice, a lawyer handling the case for the city and county of Denver, said he doesn’t think the judge’s words are aimed at his office. “Our position is very clear. We have given everything to the FBI they have asked for, and we are happy to give the FBI any and all the documents” covered by the protection order, Rice said. He has told Killmer as much, but Killmer hasn’t responded, he said. Killmer didn’t return calls.

Vexed by veto talk Remark leaves Dems torn on next step for death-penalty bill By Kurtis Lee and Lynn Bartels The Denver Post

WORK ON WADSWORTH BRIDGE OVER U.S. 36 TO CAUSE DELAYS AT NIGHT By Megan Quinn The Daily Camera

boulder» The Colorado Department of Transportation on Thursday began bridgegirder installation on the Wadsworth Parkway bridge, a project that will cause nighttime delays beginning Friday and running through early April. The project will completely replace the existing Wadsworth bridge, which was built in the early 1950s and, CDOT officials say, no longer meets current safety standards. The new bridge is scheduled to be fully functional by September. Depending on the weather, work is expected to close U.S. 36 for 12 nights, from 9 p.m. to 5:30 a.m., beginning Friday while crews put the heavy girders in place. It’s not a lengthy detour, though: During the closures, traffic will be routed off and right back onto the highway at the Wadsworth exits. Officials see the bridge work as a major milestone in the U.S. 36 Express Lanes Project and a key sign that some of the bigger chunks of construction are moving forward. While most U.S. 36 commuters already know there’s heavy work going on along the corridor, the bridge-construction project is a very noticeable reminder that there is plenty still to be done to improve the stretch of highway between Boulder and Denver, said Jason Estes, the Ames/Granite Construction project manager. The project involves setting 39 girders across the highway, each of which weighs up to 6 tons and measures up to 120 feet long. The heavy lifting will require road closures because of safety concerns.

House Democrats on Thursday acknowledged they’re torn on how to proceed with a measure to repeal the state’s death penalty after Gov. John Hickenlooper indicated he could veto the bill if it arrived at his desk. “I’m not sure what’s going to happen with this bill, or when and if we will vote on it,” said Rep. Daniel Kagan, D-Cherry Hills Village, who is chairman of the House Judiciary Committee. “As a caucus we have to discuss some things.” House Democrats are considering a caucus meeting Friday to talk about the issue. On Tuesday — after more than nine hours of testimony from proponents and opponents — Kagan asked that a vote be delayed on the mea-

sure, which would repeal the death penalty for any crimes committed after July 1. The committee will meet again Tuesday, though Kagan said a decision hasn’t been made on whether to continue forward with the measure. A decision to withhold a vote on House Bill 1264 followed a luncheon Tuesday where Hickenlooper, a Democrat, told House members of his party that he had issues with the legislation and mentioned a possible veto. After Hickenlooper signed a civil-unions bill into law Thursday, he was asked about the death penalty. “At least the last time I was out there it seemed like a pretty significant majority of people still favored the death penalty,” Hickenlooper said. “I think it’s worth a little more discussion before

we mail in the votes, as it were.” Moreover, Hickenlooper said he generally thinks that issues have a sense of time. “Should we have done civil unions five years ago? Sure. Was the majority of people in the state five years ago for it? Probably not. Are they now? Yes,” he said. “I’m wondering whether we don’t need just a little more maturation.” Whether to repeal capital punishment is not a party-line issue. Reps.

DENVER MAN TO SERVE 48 YEARS FOR KILLING FRIEND By Karen Augé The Denver Post

Joong Rhee, who bludgeoned to death a longtime friend and business associate and then dumped his body in the Utah desert, was sentenced Thursday to 48 years in prison. It took two trials, each featuring complicated evidence about the mountain of debt Rhee was under, before the 69-year-old was convicted of killing Hae Park. In addition to 48 years, the maximum sentence for second-degree murder, Rhee was given 18 months for tampering with evidence. Park’s friends and family members, and several jurors from each trial, packed a Denver District Court courtroom to hear Denver District Judge Sheila A. Rappaport impose the sentence. Park’s eldest son, Jung Hyun Park, told Rappaport that his father’s death deeply scarred the family, especially his mother, who had suffered a severe stroke before her husband’s death. “My father wasn’t only a husband to my mother, he was a caretaker as well,” Park said. “My mother is suffering greatly.” Deputy District Attorney Andrew Luxen read a letter from Park’s younger son, Tommy Park. In it, Park described how his father brought his young family from Korea to the United States to build a better life. For years, that life included friendship with Rhee. According to testimony, the two men, both immigrants from Korea, became business associates and such close friends that they vacationed together with their families. Prosecutors said that friendship ended as the economy soured and Rhee, a mortgage broker, was no longer making enough money to cover his massive debts. They argued Park’s life ended in March 2010 when he went to Rhee’s Denver office and Rhee smashed his skull. Days earlier, Rhee had filed a deed of trust that gave him title to land next to a motel in Utah that Park and his family owned. The deed said Park would surrender the parcel if he didn’t pay Rhee $300,000 he was owed within a year. Rhee was accused of putting Park’s body into his car and driving more than 400 miles into the Utah desert, where he dumped it. Share your news tips 303-954-1201

Wilfredo Matamoros, the store manager of Mountain Market in Ridgway, stocks shelves earlier this month. Matamoros wants to become a U.S. citizen, but he is in an immigration-status limbo that does not allow for it. William Woody, Special to The Denver Post

Temporary status locks some in limbo By Nancy Lofholm The Denver Post

ridgway» Nineteen years ago, Wilfredo Matamoros escaped his war-torn and gang-ravaged El Salvador to join relatives who had already fled to the United States. He traveled through Mexico hidden under a tarp in an onion truck. He trudged for two nights to cross the U.S. border near Nogales. He was 14 years old. Colorado has been his home since then. For the first few years, he lived in the shadows as an underage and undocumented immigrant, working at menial jobs around Telluride. For the past dozen years, he has been a legal resident of the United States. He is allowed to work and has advanced to manager at the Mountain Market grocery in this small western Colorado town. Matamoros wants to become a U.S. citizen. But he is in an immigration-status limbo that does not allow for it — even if he is here living an exemplary life for many more years. Matamoros is allowed to stay in the country under what is called Temporary Protective Status along with more than 300,000 other immigrants living in the U.S. — 209,000 of them Salvadorans. TPS, as it is called for short, is a blanket status granted to immigrants who come to the United States from a changeable list of countries that have suffered major disruptions ranging from civil wars to natural disasters. El Salvador is on that list along with Haiti, Honduras, Nicaragua, Somalia, Sudan, South Sudan and Syria. The secretary of Homeland Security decides every 18 months or so which countries should stay on the list, which should be added, and which should have protective status rescinded. Matamoros has been lucky in that regard: El Salvador’s protective status has been renewed eight times. Each renewal buys him more time in his adopted country but little peace of mind. “I always wonder what is going to happen to-

morrow. What is happening next? I am scared every time I have to renew,” Matamoros said as he took a rare break from stocking and straightening shelves at the Mountain Market. In the current groundswell of support for immigration reform, the little-understood TPS has rarely — if ever — been mentioned as one of the hundreds of pieces of a complicated immigration system in need of reform. Kristen Lynch, a spokeswoman for Sen. Michael Bennet, who is in the core group of politicians crafting closely guarded reform measures, could say only that the wide range of topics being discussed does include TPS. “I think we do need to do a better job to get the TPS issue more on the front burner,” said Bryon Large, a Denver attorney who is chair-elect of the American Immigration Lawyers Association. In the meantime, Matamoros’ temporary status adds more than stress to his life. It costs him around $1,400 each time he must renew his application for TPS. That includes filing fees and the fee for having an immigration attorney handle it because he fears even a simple clerical error could result in denial. “He has to keep his documents in order. He can’t even get traffic tickets. He has to pay fees that have gone up,” said attorney Richard Garcia, who described Matamoros’ file as more than 4 inches thick. In the years that Matamoros, 33, has been under temporary status, he has added a wife and child. He has never been in trouble with the law. He said he has never used any welfare services and has always paid his taxes. He has worked his way to a level of success he could only dream of in El Salvador. “I am happy and thankful to be here,” he said. “But I want to be a citizen.” Nancy Lofholm: 970-256-1957, nlofholm@denverpost.com or twitter.com/nlofholm

Cotter will brew uranium cocktail in bid to remove threat to water By Bruce Finley The Denver Post

Cotter Corp. is preparing to brew a multimillion-gallon uranium cocktail in a mine shaft west of Denver — an innovation aimed at ending a threat to city water supplies. If all goes well, mixing molasses and alcohol into a stream of filtered water pumped from the mine and discharged down Ralston Creek, and then re-injecting that mix into Cotter’s 2,000-foot-deep Schwartzwalder mine, will immobilize uranium tainting the creek. Bacteria inside the mine will devour the molasses and dissolved uranium, creating solid uranium particles that will settle at the base of the mine, Cotter vice president John Hamrick said. “We believe we can get the water to such a state that it would be OK to let it come out,” Hamrick said in an interview. “We’re using our best efforts to do this as quickly as we can.” Bacteria “will eat the uranium to live, and part of what they excrete, or the byproduct of that, is a solid particle that will fall down to the bottom of the mine.” The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has approved Cotter’s project and state regulators were reviewing it. Such “bioremediation” would save Cotter tens of millions of dollars as an alternative to perpetually pumping out and treating mine water laced with uranium — which reached concentrations as high as 24,000 parts per billion inside the mine MINE » 5A

VETO «FROM 4A sion the governor’s going to have to make when it arrives at his desk,” Melton said Thursday. By contrast, Rep. Rhonda Fields, D-Aurora, who has a personal connection to the state’s death row because two men on it were convicted of killing her son in 2005, wants voters in 2014 to decide whether to repeal the death penalty. Fields, who is the lone sponsor of a bill that would create such a ballot issue, has expressed that she is staunchly against repeal of capital punishment in Colorado. She has introduced her measure as an alternative to having lawmakers give a final say on the ultimate penalty. On Twitter on Thursday, Fields criticized Melton, saying that when he was her campaign manager, he never called the death penalty “failed policy.” She later deleted the post and offered an apology. Hickenlooper’s mention of vetoing the measure has drawn scorn from some of those who testified in favor of the bill. Boulder County District Attorney Stan Garnett, the Democratic nominee for attorney general in 2010, on Facebook called Hickenlooper’s idea of vetoing the measure a “shame.” “Many committed Democrats risked their careers on this important effort. We need to do the right thing while we can, and can’t always have our fingers in the air, testing the political winds,” wrote Garnett. Rep. Tony Exum, D-Colorado Springs, said if HB 1264 arrived on the House floor, he would vote in favor of it. “But it’s an issue I’ve lost sleep over,” Exum said, “and I’m sure a lot of my colleagues have as well.”

shaft, well above the 30 ppb federal drinking water standard. Uranium seeping from the mine has contaminated Ralston Creek, which flows into Denver Water’s Ralston Reservoir, a source of drinking water for 1.3 million metro residents. Utility treatments remove uranium before it reaches households. Cotter’s effort to harness bacteria also may hold promise for dealing with other toxic abandoned mines — tens of thousands of them around the western U.S. — degrading water. State and federal authorities have been exploring solutions. “The potential is there for this pro-

cess to work,” EPA environmental scientist Craig Boomgaard said. “Another form of it is being done at Asarco’s smelter in Denver. Is it solution? I can’t say. But in certain cases it is demonstrated to be effective.” Nearly four years ago, The Denver Post reported that a state mining inspector had detected heavy uranium contamination in the mine along Ralston Creek. Cotter fought repeated state orders to clean up the mine and the creek. Under a legal settlement last fall, Cotter agreed to lower the water level to 150 feet below the mouth of the mine and pay $3.5 million into a fund to ensure cleanup. State Division of Reclamation, Mining and Safety officials this week were “encouraged that Cotter is taking steps to address the mine pool issues at

Schwartzwalder,” according to a statement e-mailed by an agency spokesman to be attributed to division director Loretta Pineda. State regulators’ order to pump out and treat uranium-laced water from the mine “has been in place for quite a while and the mine pool drawdown has not yet commenced,” the statement said. “We are eager to see the company move forward.” The Post made repeated requests to speak directly with state experts. Final state approval isn’t done. “We are in the process of granting a partial approval, but are still reviewing a required final remediation plan,” state spokesman Todd Hartman said. It is unknown how long the filtering at the top of the mine and the use of the molasses mix would continue. The Schwartzwalder once was the

NEWS «5A

nation’s largest underground uranium mine. Last year, Cotter crews rerouted Ralston Creek around the mine through an 18-inch pipeline to reduce uranium levels in the creek, which had reached 40 to 50 parts per billion but now are said to fall consistently within the 30 ppb limit. Cotter has been ordered to irrigate the creek corridor so that trees and wildlife survive cleanup activities during the diversion. Denver Water “is pleased to see the recent progress at the Schwartzwalder mine site,” utility spokesman Travis Thompson said. “The mine site needs to be addressed. We’re hopeful that this is the first step.” Bruce Finley: 303-954-1700, twitter.com/finleybruce or bfinley@denverpost.com

Ex-Greeley coach injured in hit-run By Whitney Phillips The Greeley Tribune

A longtime Greeley teacher and coach was in critical condition after being hit by a car Thursday morning while riding his bicycle to Frontier Academy. Greeley police spokeswoman Sgt. Susan West said Richard Ziegler, 62, was apparently on his way to his job as a tutor at Frontier Academy when he was struck in the area of 59th Avenue and 18th Street in west Greeley about 6:40 a.m. The driver left the scene. West said police were searching Thursday for a small sedan, like a Chevrolet Cavalier, that is dark or possibly black. West said video footage also shows a white pickup, possibly a crew cab, in the area about the same time, and police are hoping to talk to the driver of the vehicle as a possible witness. Ziegler suffered serious injuries and was in critical condition at North Colorado Medical Center, according to police. Ziegler coached baseball in the community for years and was head baseball coach at Greeley West for about a decade. He retired from teaching and coaching a few years ago and is a tutor at Frontier.

Dispatcher coaches couple Longmont woman guides parents through unexpected home birth of 2nd child By John Fryar Longmont Times-Call

A police and fire dispatcher six weeks from delivering her own child helped coach a Longmont couple over the telephone through the unexpected home birth of their baby girl late Monday night. “That baby’s cry was probably the most beautiful thing I’ve heard at work,” Micala Rankin, a 4½-year veteran of the city’s emergency dispatch unit, said Tuesday. Kelly Hendricks was “right on her due date,” when she went into labor, but before her husband Joseph Hendricks could get the car out of the garage, he found himself needing to dial 911. “She was ready,” Joseph Hendricks said, and the girl, whom they have named Annabell, wasn’t about to wait to be born. It wasn’t their first childbirth. But they weren’t planning on a home birth, “that’s for sure,” Joseph said.

Joseph and Kelly Hendricks hold their baby, Annabell, at Longmont United Hospital on Wednesday. Greg Lindstrom, The Longmont Times-Call

“It was a very different experience from our first,” Kelly said. The Hendricks’ son, Tyler, was born almost two years ago at Longmont United Hospital. Tyler was waiting in the family car in the garage of their home for this trip to the hospital while — as it turned out — his parents were upstairs overseeing his sister’s entry into the world. “It felt like forever between when I called and when she actually came out,” Joseph Hendricks said, although Rankin said it actually took about seven minutes. Longmont Fire Lt. Jeff Moll credited Rankin with keeping the girl’s father calm while instructing the parents how to proceed before firefighters and paramedics arrived at the couple’s southwest Longmont home. Rankin said she advised the parents with instructions about such things as tying off the umbilical cord — which Joseph Hendricks said he did with a shoestring — and wrapping Annabell

in something warm after she was born. Joseph Hendricks said he didn’t actually hear all those instructions. Kelly Hendricks at one point assured Rankin — and Rankin’s fellow dispatchers, who were listening in on a speakerphone connection — that the baby was breathing and that the father was saying about his newborn daughter: “She’s so beautiful. She’s so beautiful.” “The dad did an amazing job,” Rankin said. “They did a great job. They brought their baby into the world all by themselves.” Rankin was able to apply the training she and other Longmont dispatchers have in talking callers through such emergency medical procedures until police, fire or ambulance personnel can get there. She said she completed a refresher course in those procedures just three weeks ago. Rankin’s baby is due in about six weeks. She said her experience Monday “gave me a little insight as to what I’m getting into.”

EASTER SALE

It’s the Weekend! “Argonaut Has It!”

Sen. Andy Kerr, D-Lakewood, testifies before a Senate Education Committee hearing for SB 201, which would make shelter and rescue dogs and cats the official state pet. Kerr’s rescue black lab Angus and son, Griffin, 3, in Dalmatian makeup, joined him. Andy Cross, The Denver Post

PETS «FROM 1A sponsor, Andy Kerr, D-Lakewood, cavorted around the room dressed as a spotted dog because his preschool had just celebrated Dalmatian Day. And that was just the sideshow. Testimony started with Roger Arellano, 14, who had arrived on a bus from Walsenburg with other middle-schoolers from Peakview who had been researching the bill. “It’s important to honor the voice of the voiceless,” he said. Speaking up on behalf of shelter and rescue dogs is “a matter of life and death” for millions of dogs and cats, he said. “And you can save a lot of money compared to getting them from a pet store.” This did not go over well with supporters of the pet industry. “The language of the bill honors the transaction, saying the

only qualified state pet is adopted from shelter and rescue,” said Dan Anglin of Anglin Public Affairs. Anglin represents the Colorado Federation of Dog Clubs, which holds dog shows, and the Colorado Pet Association, a group of animal retailers, groomers and breeders. “The state already honors that with a license plate,” said Anglin, who added that the economic impact of American Kennel Club purebred dog ownership in Colorado was an estimated $20.48 million each year. There was another problem with the bill. “It unfairly discriminates against birds, reptiles, arachnids and other mammals,” he said. “And snakes, lizards and spiders.” Many opponents said the bill should focus on heroic dogs, such as service dogs, law enforcement dogs, cadaver dogs and military dogs. Then, patriotism was invoked. “We do our share too,” said Karen Kotke-Partington, a

member of the Norfolk Terrier Club. “When a puppy owner went to Iraq, we took care of the puppy,” she said, adding that when the soldier returned, the dog meant everything to him. Interloper Skyler Kuykendall, a fifth-grader at Rooney Ranch Elementary School in Lakewood, sought to amend the bill to include the golden retriever as the state dog. With his golden retriever, Boz, at his side, he ticked off a list of reasons including “brown eyes like the Rocky Mountains” and “golden color that is like all of the gold that has been found in Colorado.” The Walsenburg students sat in the back, rapt at democracy in action. “The argument swung between service dogs and shelter dogs,” said Kaylee Summers, 14. “It was difficult to decide, because both sides made sense.”

Civil unions ring up business Wedding planners, legal advisers and financial planners stand ready to serve a hot new market. By Jason Blevins and David Migoya The Denver Post

A new wedding market blossomed in Colorado on Wednesday when Gov. John Hickenlooper approved civil unions, creating a business opportunity for ceremony planners and hotels, as well as financial planners and attorneys. “It’s certainly going to increase bottom lines,” said Bernadette Coveney Smith, a Manhattan wedding planner whose pioneering Gay Wedding Institute has certified 700 wedding planners, vendors and hosts for providing same-sex weddings. “It’s a big business … there is definitely room for all of us to benefit financially from gay weddings.” Cherry Creek’s JW Marriott Denver is hoping to tap the swell of couples seeking to celebrate their union. The hotel’s catering events manager, Lindsay Alesio, last fall secured certification through the Gay Wedding Institute. She was the only hotelier in the Colorado certification program, which was attended by wedding photographers, vendors and caterers. Last year the JW Marriott hosted two same-sex weddings. This year, the hotel has three on the books. Alesio is fielding more calls from same-sex couples mulling a ceremony at her hotel. She’s putting her training to work. Years ago at a resort in the mountains, she said, she landed a $175,000 gay wedding because she asked a man who was calling about a wedding: “What’s the name of your significant other?” “He said: ‘You are the only one who has asked me that way.’ And he booked with us,” she said. It’s not just terminology but a general respect that mirrors the same treatment offered straight couples, Alesio said. She helps recruit vendors — photographers, bakers, florists — who are accepting of samesex marriages. (“You’d be surprised how many aren’t,” she said.) She guides couples through different legal hurdles for civil unions. Several popular wedding hotels and resorts contacted Wednesday reported a recent increase in interest in civilunion ceremonies. The Curtis Hotel in Denver is hosting Denver’s 2013 Rainbow Wedding Network GLBT wedding expo next month. Once the rings are on and the lifetime commitments made, couples are likely to turn to a financial planner or, in later years, an estate planner. Experts in those fields already are seeing an uptick in referrals. What same-sex couples are surprised to learn, though, is that things aren’t quite as clear-cut as they might think, even if their bond is recognized in Colorado. “It’s all very romantic, but there’s a need to see what the downstream effects of having a legitimate union will be,” said Lauren Sigman, a certified financial planner who owns Sigman Financial Fitness in Denver and specializes in nontraditional households. “Civil unions are legal in Colorado now, but nothing has changed at the federal level, so the complexity of that difference is very real,” Sigman said. “It makes splitting up very complicated, and that realization is key to know now.” Attorneys also are expecting an increase. “With the defining of these relationships, we’d certainly expect more inquiry simply because of the major life changes that will occur,” said Amy Goscha, an attorney at Hackstaff Law Group who works on estate planning and family law.

CIVIL «FROM 1A yet it gave us so much hope and so much momentum moving forward. We didn’t take that defeat sitting down. We were in the streets, and we were in the courtrooms, and we were in the halls of the Capitol building.” Steadman quoted from U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, who wrote the majority opinion in 1996 that overturned Amendment 2. “He wrote, ‘A state cannot so deem a class of persons a stranger to its laws,’ ” Steadman said. The atmosphere at the bill-signing was electric, with huge cheers when lawmakers and the governor took to the small stage. Senate Bill 11 gives samesex couples many but not all of the rights and responsibilities of marriage. It goes into effect May 1. “Dearly beloved,” Steadman said before the crowd erupted, forcing him to pause before he continued, “we’re going to make history.” Steadman and another gay Denver Democrat, Rep. Mark Ferrandino, have sponsored the civil measures for three years, but the bills died in the previous two sessions when Republicans controlled the House. Last year’s bill died a dramatic death although Democrats had enough votes to get it passed through the House. Democrats won back the House majority in November. This year, Steadman and Ferrandino were joined by two other gay sponsors: Rep. Sue Schafer, D-Wheat Ridge, and Sen. Lucia Guzman, D-Denver. “What a great day to be a Coloradan,” Schafer said. Ferrandino, who now is the House speaker, recognized the “courageous Republicans in the House and the Senate who were willing to stand up and do the right thing.” The GOP senators who voted for civil unions last year, this year or both are Ellen Roberts of Durango, Jean White of Hayden and Nancy Spence of Centennial. The GOP House supporters are Reps. B.J. Nikkel of Loveland, Don Beezley of Broomfield, Cheri Gerou of Evergreen and Carole Murray of Castle Rock. Gerou waved at Ferrandino when he called her name. “I kept saying it wasn’t a matter of if; it was a matter of when,” Ferrandino said. “It’s an amazing day to be here.” The speaker said the bill has always been personal but that it has ever more

Fran and Anna Simon and their son Jeremy, 5, celebrate after Gov. John Hickenlooper signed the Colorado Civil Union Act on Thursday. They plan to be joined in a civil union May 1. Craig F. Walker, The Denver Post meaning now that he and his partner, Greg Wertsch, have a 15-month-old foster daughter. “When I wake up and I go and take her out of her crib and see that smiling face, to know that after the governor signs (the bill) she’s going to have the protections just like every other family makes my heart warm,” Ferrandino said. Hickenlooper, a former geologist who started Wynkoop Brewing Co. after the oil bust in the 1980s, said that in the early 1990s a gay employee was promoted to general manager. When a couple of customers asked to speak to the owner about the manager, Hickenlooper thought they were going to say what a good job the manager was doing. “They said they weren’t going to come to our business anymore,” the governor recalled. “One of our waitresses was standing beside me, and she

dp

said, ‘You know, that’s not going to bother any of us at all.’ ” The anecdote drew laughs, but Hickenlooper talked about how attitudes have changed over time. “It is a moment that the whole community has waited for for so long,” the governor said. One of his staffers tweeted: “From hate state to great state?” But Steadman said the civil-unions bill is “admittedly imperfect.” “It is not an extension of equal rights. It is not something that includes us fully and on equal footing with others in society,” he said. “There is still much to do.” Full equality is marriage, Steadman, Ferrandino and others have said, but a constitutional amendment voters passed in 2006 recognizes marriage as only between a man and a woman.

11 is a prime number. Eleven is a lovely word. It’s binary; a pair of ones. It’s two like things, bound together, to make a whole of ones. Lynn Bartels: 303-954-5327, lbartels@denverpost.com or twitter.com/lynn_bartels

Steadman deliberately chose the number of this year’s civil-unions measure: Senate Bill 11. His partner, Dave Misner, who died last September after a brief battle with pancreatic cancer, was born on May 11. They had been together 11 years. Some of those who attended the civil-unions signing wore the same purple ribbons they wore at Misner’s funeral. After civil unions passed this year, Steadman wrote a poem:

DENVER SHOWS BIGGEST DROP IN OFFICE VACANCY RATES IN UNITED STATES By John Mossman The Denver Post

Denver showed the largest decline in office vacancy rates among the 12 largest markets surveyed by CBRE Group in the first quarter of this year. CBRE said Thursday that office vacancy rates declined in six of the 12 markets and held steady in two others. Denver recorded the biggest drop, going from a 15.1 percent vacancy rate in the fourth quarter of 2012 to 14.5 percent in the first quarter of 2013. San Francisco had the second-biggest drop, going from 9.5 percent to 9.1 percent. Both markets saw asking rates rise because of heightened leasing activity in combination with constrained supply, Los Angeles-based CBRE said. Washington, D.C., and New York registered the sharpest increases in vacancies. “Denver is seeing a decrease in vacancy attributable to pent-up demand from a previously sluggish economy,” said Daniel Clark, research manager for CBRE in Denver, in a statement. Ray Pittman, CBRE senior managing director for Colorado, said the state market “is seeing an increase in activity from tenants in both the technology and business services sectors. There continues to be a trend toward downtown with many growing and existing companies, as development within Union Station and lower downtown brings new interest and opportunity to the region.” For the major U.S. industrial markets, availability rates continued to decrease moderately in the quarter.

The Colorado Public Utilities Commission refuses to let the utility charge ratepayers $16.6 million in SmartGridCity costs. By Mark Jaffe The Denver Post

The Colorado Public Utilities Commission on Thursday rejected Xcel Energy’s efforts to recoup from ratepayers the last $16.6 million in costs for its SmartGridCity project. The cost of the Boulder-based pilot program, using sophisticated sensors and computer technology to manage electricity, nearly tripled to $44.5 million in its first year of operation. Xcel is already recovering $27.9 million of the cost through customer rates. The commission rejected Xcel’s claim for the remaining money with prejudice so that the utility cannot reapply for the costs. “This business should be put to rest,” said Commissioner James Tarpey. Though Xcel can’t reapply for the money, it can ask the commission to reconsider its decision one more time. It can also sue the commission in Denver District Court. “We are disappointed in today’s decision by the PUC,” Xcel said in a statement. “SmartGridCity has provided benefits to our customers and valuable information to us about technologies.” The utility wants to review the written deci-

sion but is “not contemplating” requesting reconsideration, Xcel spokeswoman Michelle Aguayo said in an e-mail. SmartGridCity was going to wire Boulder with advanced technology — thousands of sensors, smart meters on 35,000 homes — and link it with communications software, enabling the utility and consumers to control their electricity. When the project began in 2008, Xcel executives said the utility’s share of the $100 million pilot program would be $15.3 million. The rest of the cost was to be picked up by seven partner companies specializing in smart-grid technology. As the costs rose and some of Xcel’s partners dropped out, some aspects of the pilot were scaled back. The plan, for example, called for about 1,850 in-house energy-management systems, which would help homeowners control their electricity use. Xcel ended up installing 101. In 2010, the commission allowed Xcel to recover $27.9 million in costs but said the utility couldn’t get the rest until it showed customer benefits and a strategic plan for the technology. In January, Administrative Law Judge Paul

Gomez ruled that Xcel had failed to meet those criteria and recommended that the claim be rejected. Xcel asked the commission to reconsider Gomez’s ruling, but Thursday the commissioners upheld his findings. “We gave them all the opportunities,” said Commission Chairman Joshua Epel. Xcel contended that Gomez failed to take into account the useful components of the pilot — such as better management of voltage and quicker identification of failing equipment and blackouts. The utility said Gomez had conducted a “hindsight assessment.” Tarpey called the argument “disingenuous.” “They did not file before they started spending money,” Tarpey said. Commissioner Pam Patton agreed, making the PUC vote 3-0. Boulder opposed Xcel’s getting the $16.6 million. “Xcel Energy had initially indicated this project would not cost its ratepayers anything,” Debra Kalish, Boulder assistant city attorney, said in an e-mail. Bill Levis, director of the Colorado Office of Consumer Counsel, who opposed Xcel’s getting more than $27.9 million for the pilot, said, “The commission did the right thing.”

TWO-WAY MEDIA WINS $27.5 MILLION IN SUIT AT&T Inc. was told to pay $27.5 million for infringing a Colorado company’s patents for controlling how audio or video is streamed online. AT&T’s U-verse TV services infringed two patents owned by Two-Way Media LLC, a federal jury in San Antonio said Wednesday. The jury rejected Dallasbased AT&T’s efforts to have the patents deemed invalid. The Two-Way patents cover live-streaming technology as well as ways to record detailed usage data by customers, according to the company’s lawyers at Susman Godfrey. Boulder-based Two-Way had sued Akamai Technologies Inc. and Limelight Networks Inc. over the same technology; those two companies settled. “This was a very hard-fought case,’’ Parker Folse, a Seattle-based Susman lawyer representing Two-Way, said in a statement. The trial focused on three Two-Way patents. The jury found U-Verse infringed two of them. AT&T said it would seek to have the verdict overturned. ‘‘While the verdict was a small fraction of what the plaintiff sought in this case, we will challenge the amount that was awarded,’’ Marty Richter, an AT&T spokesman, said in a statement.

BOEING PLANS FLIGHTS TO TEST 787 BATTERIES seattle » Boeing plans to conduct two flight tests of its revamped 787 battery system, possibly as soon as the end of the week, according to three sources familiar with the matter. The 787 flights, the first since February, would mark another step toward Boeing’s recently announced goal of returning the grounded jet to service in a matter of weeks, not months. Regulators banned the plane from the skies in January after lithium-ion batteries burned on two 787s in quick succession that month. The Federal Aviation Administration gave Boeing permission for a single “ferry” flight on Feb. 7 to move a jet to Washington state from Texas, carrying minimal crew and no passengers. Boeing declined to comment. The testing regimen set by the FAA requires one flight test. But Boeing plans to conduct two flights: one for its own purposes and a second to gather data to submit for FAA approval, according to the sources, who spoke on condition that they not be named. The flights could still be delayed by weather or other factors. Flight plans for the events had not yet been filed with the FAA. Reuters

Luxury is a relative concept. At the Denver Auto Show, it clearly applies to the $387,000 Lamborghini Aventador. But luxury’s range is broadening. Mercedes-Benz is unveiling a new concept model, the CLA, with a sticker price starting at $29,900. Manufacturers are putting plenty of horsepower into the production and marketing of luxury lines, whether they define luxury as “affordable” or “come see us after you’ve won the lottery.” Sales of high-end brands boomed in 2012

after a few lean years during and after the recession. Even though the luxury sector didn’t fall as far as the broader car market during the downturn, its 2012 sales increase of 20 percent in Colorado nearly matched the overall market’s gain of 22 percent. “The news in the stock market of late has been good for us,” said Mark Dismuke, general manager of Ferrari-Maserati of Denver. “It’s creating some consumer confidence, which we hadn’t been seeing.” Now, luxury-car makers are looking to expand their market with a mandated assist AUTOS » 14A

SATURDAY POSTAL SERVICE DEBATED washington»The new spending bill passed by Congress on Thursday appears to continue the requirement for six-day mail delivery, but some lawmakers and postal officials say plans to cut Saturday service should proceed. The financially troubled Postal Service announced last month that it would switch in August to five-day service for first-class mail and continue six-day package delivery. Meanwhile, the Government Accountability Office weighed in with an opinion that the postal agency did not have the right to unilaterally end Saturday delivery.

FCC chairman said to be departing the agency, leaving a second vacancy to fill By Todd Shields Bloomberg News

Federal Communications Commission Chairman Julius Genachowski is leaving his post, according to a person familiar with the matter, setting up a second vacancy on the fivemember U.S. agency that regulates telephone, cable and broadcast companies. Genachowski, a Democrat, will announce his departure from the FCC on Friday, said the person, who asked to not be named in discussing a personnel matter. Neil Grace, an FCC spokesman, de-

clined to comment. To replace the 50-year-old Genachowski, President Barack Obama could elevate either of the agency’s two Democrats, or name a chairman from two new members who will need Senate confirmation. Genachowski can depart without leaving behind a 2-2 partisan tie because Republican Robert McDowell announced Wednesday he’ll resign in coming weeks. The changes will leave Mignon Clyburn and Jessica Rosenworcel as the FCC’s Democrats, and Ajit Pai as its sole Republican.

With two seats open on the FCC, the administration can advance a Republican and a Democratic nominee simultaneously, making it easier for both to win approval from the Senate, Andrew Lipman, a partner for Bingham McCutchen, said in an interview. Genachowski’s focus on expanding access to high-speed wireless Internet service broke with some priorities of his predecessors. His FCC levied no fines for broadcast indecency, after a flurry of penalties under Republican chairmen from 2003 to 2008.

Defense will delay civilian furloughs

WORLD MARKET DRI V E S UP U. S. GAS PRI CE S

Noble plans natural gas plant. Denver-based Noble Energy said Thursday it will build a liquefied natural gas plant in northern Weld County that should improve air quality in the region. The facility, which will operate in conjunction with the company’s Keota natural gas processing plant starting in the second half of 2014, will be the first of its kind in Colorado, the company said. The $45 million facility will generate 100,000 gallons of liquefied gas per day.

washington» The Defense Department will delay furlough notices for its civilian employees for about two weeks while officials analyze the impact of a new spending bill on planned budget cuts, the Pentagon said Thursday. The Pentagon had planned to begin issuing the furlough notices on Friday, but Congress on Thursday approved legislation to keep the government open through the end of September, moving more than $10 billion into Pentagon operations and maintenance accounts. That shift could reduce the number of unpaid furlough days employees would be required to take. According to a White House memo, approximately 12,000 civilian Department of Defense employees in Colorado would have been furloughed one day a week for 22 weeks. This would result in a reduction in gross pay by about $68.5 million by Sept. 30. In a statement, the Pentagon said no final decisions have been made on whether changes can be made to the number of furlough days. Officials said the extra money is not likely to widen the pool of employees eligible to avoid the furloughs. The legislation did not add money but instead shifted funds from investment and acquisition accounts to operations accounts, so that savings would have to be found elsewhere. “We think they will use this two-week period to look it over and figure out, with their new budget and sequestration, (if they) have any breathing room to avoid furloughs,” said Catherine Mortensen, press secretary for Colorado U.S. Rep. Doug Lamborn, who represents the 5th congressional district based on Colorado Springs. The furloughs are because of automatic spending cuts agreed to in a 2011 budget pact. The delay comes as Defense officials continue to wrangle over how many civilians should be exempt from the unpaid leave requirement.

IHS reports improved earnings. Douglas Countybased IHS Inc., publisher of Jane’s Defence Weekly, reported higher-than-expected firstquarter revenue on a 13 percent rise in subscription income but said customers continued to delay spending decisions on its non-subscription services. Net income for the quarter rose to $24.7 million, or 37 cents per share, from $23.5 million, or 35 cents per share, a year earlier. Excluding items, IHS earned 86 cents per share, a penny above expectations. Revenue increased 12 percent to $383 million.

Frontier offers free ticket changes. Frontier Airlines is offering its ticket-holding customers one itinerary change due to winter weather expected to impact Denver International Airport on Saturday. Customers who purchased tickets for air travel on Saturday, March 23, will have all rebooking fees waived if they bought their tickets on or before Wednesday. The accommodations are reserved for its customers with travel to, from or through Denver.

Rural economy improves

B omaha» Bankers in 10 Midwest and Plains states, including Colorado, expect the rural economy to continue growing in the months ahead because of the strength of farm income. The overall economic index on the March Rural Mainstreet survey remained at a healthy level of 56.9 even though it was down from February’s 58.2. Any score above 50 on the index suggests growth in the months ahead.

Jobless claims inch upward

Customers fill up at a Costco station in Van Nuys, Calif., in October. U.S. oil output rose 14 percent in 2012, a record increase, but the national average price of gasoline is $3.69 a gallon and headed higher. Associated Press file

Feeling pinch at pump By Jonathan Fahey The Associated Press

new york» The U.S. is increasing its oil production faster than ever, and American drivers are guzzling less gas. But you’d never know it from the price at the pump. The national average price of gasoline is $3.69 per gallon and forecast to creep higher, possibly approaching $4 by May. “I just don’t get it,” says Steve Laffoon, a part-time mental health worker, who recently paid $3.59 per gallon to fill up in St. Louis. U.S. oil output rose 14 percent to 6.5 million barrels per day last year — a record increase. By 2020, the nation is

forecast to overtake Saudi Arabia as the world’s largest crude oil producer. At the same time, U.S. gasoline demand has fallen to 8.7 million barrels a day, its lowest level since 2001, as people switch to more fuel-efficient cars. So is the high price of gasoline a signal that markets aren’t working properly? Not at all, experts say. The laws of supply and demand are working, just not in the way U.S. drivers want them to. U.S. drivers are competing with drivers worldwide for every gallon of gasoline. As the developing economies of Asia and Latin America expand, their energy consumption is rising, which puts pressure on fuel supplies

and prices everywhere else. The U.S. still consumes more oil than any other country, but demand is weak and imports are falling. That leaves China, which overtook the U.S. late last year as the world’s largest oil importer, as the single biggest influence on global demand for fuels. China’s consumption has risen 28 percent in five years, to 10.2 million barrels per day last year. “There’s an 800-pound gorilla in the picture now — the Chinese economy,” says Patrick DeHaan, chief petroleum analyst at the price-tracking service GasBuddy.com. U.S. refiners are free to sell gasoline and diesel to the highest bidder around the world.

EU sees fund-manager bonuses as next target By Jim Brunsden Bloomberg News

Fund managers are facing a push by European Parliament lawmakers to limit their bonuses, hours after Britain failed to water down planned EU banker-pay rules that are set to take effect from 2015. The assembly’s economic and monetary affairs committee voted in favor of a ban on managers of EU-regulated mutual funds, known as UCITS, from receiving bonuses larger than their fixed pay.

AUTOS «FROM 13A from the federal government. To meet new fuel-mileage and emissions standards, manufacturers are rolling out smaller and less costly models. The four-door CLA is the first Mercedes to come with a four-cylinder engine and front-wheel drive — features that will reduce gas consumption. Auto-show patrons can get a look at a concept model of the CLA, but it won’t hit showrooms until September. “It’s a really good-looking car,” said show attendee Marty Fowler, a real-estate agent from Vail. “To know that they have something in a price range like this, that’s very interesting to me.” Phil Jarzen of Arvada said he has flirted with the idea of buying a Mercedes. Now, the flirtation may get more serious. “I’ll be in the market for a new car in maybe two years,” he said. “But at this

“Today’s vote would ensure greater protection for investors and help reduce excessively risky speculation,” Sven Giegold, the legislator leading work on the draft measures in the assembly, said in an e-mailed statement. “The rules … would be an important step towards ending the gambler mentality in the investment fund sector.” The move comes as European Parliament lawmakers and Ireland, which holds the rotating presidency of the EU, confirmed a compromise deal overhauling bank capital and liquidity

rules for the 27-nation EU. That law will ban banker bonuses that are more than twice fixed pay, with scope for as much as a quarter of the bonus to be valued at a discount if payment is deferred for at least five years. In calling for tougher fund-manager rules, lawmakers set the stage for a vote by the full parliament before negotiations with national diplomats can start. Funds that meet EU investorprotection and oversight rules can be labeled as UCITS, and gain the right to operate throughout the 27-nation bloc.

price, maybe it’ll be sooner.” Sales expectations already are high. Mercedes officials are projecting CLA sales of 30,000 units in the last four months of the year. For all of 2012, Mercedes sold 289,000 vehicles in the U.S. across all model lines, according to automotive analysis firm Polk. Many buyers will add option packages to the base CLA, bringing its average cost to about $34,000, said Todd Bondy, general manager of Murray Motor Imports in Denver. “When you look at $30,000, it’s really not that much of a stretch from buying a new Accord or Maxima or Camry,” he said. Even Maserati is testing the affordable-luxury market, albeit at a higher level. A new version of the Maserati Ghibli, previously released in the 1960s and 1990s, will hit showrooms in September at a list price of about $75,000 — a bargain compared with Maserati’s flagship Quattroporte at $128,000. The Ghibli will be targeted to compete with the Mercedes E-Class and

Stocks closed lower on Wall Street Thursday after Oracle’s weak sales results weighed down big U.S. technology companies. Traders also worried about Cyprus running out of time to avoid bankruptcy. Major indexes followed European markets lower at the open and remained solidly negative all day. The Dow Jones industrial average fell as much as 129 points by midafternoon before paring the loss to close down 90 points. All three major indexes felt the drag from technology stocks after Oracle reported an unexpected decline in sales in its fiscal third quarter. Oracle’s results have an outsized impact on other technology stocks because it reports earlier than most of its peers. European markets had closed sharply lower. The main indexes in Paris and Frankfurt fell 1.4 percent and 0.9 percent, respectively, on fear that the crisis in Cyprus will intensify. The European Central Bank has threatened to end emergency support of the nation’s banks next week unless leaders can secure more funding. Cyprus must raise about $7.5 billion in the next four days to avoid bankruptcy. Several plans have failed, including a proposal to tax deposits held

Cypriot politicians moved Thursday to restructure the country’s most troubled bank as part of a broader bailout plan that must be in place by Monday to avoid financial ruin. Concerned customers rushed to get cash from ATMs as bank employees protested. Cyprus has been told it must raise $7.5 billion if it is to receive $12.9 billion from its fellow eurozone countries and the International Monetary Fund. If it does not find a way by Monday, the European Central Bank said it will cut off emergency support to the banks, letting them collapse. That would throw the country into financial chaos and, ultimately, cause it to leave the eurozone, with unpredictable consequences for the region. Party leaders and the government were hashing out three new laws on Thursday night, ranging from restricting bank transactions to restructuring the most troubled bank, Cyprus Popular Bank, or Laiki. The pressure has increased since lawmakers on Tuesday rejected an earlier proposal to seize up to 10 percent of people’s bank accounts. Banks will not open until Tuesday at the earliest. Uncertainty was growing among Cypriots as the deadline approached and reports spread that the country’s second-largest bank would be restructured. Queues of 40 to 50 people formed at the ATMs of Laiki,

which responded by capping daily withdrawals at $340 per person from $906. Although ATMs have been functioning, many often run out of cash. “We need cash. We have families, children, grandchildren and expenses, and the banks have been closed since Saturday,” said Andri Olympiou after withdrawing money from a Laiki branch in Nicosia, the capital.

As Granby Ranch readies final ski weekends, Base Camp One cuts condos another $20,000 In a year when mountain resorts with year-round amenities are catching on with buyers, you have plenty of time to check out Granby Ranch’s trails, fishing, biking and other amenities – but if you want to give your family the ski experience, you need to get going. Base Camp One, right beside Ski Granby Ranch’s base lodge and grill, will give you two adult passes good for any day of its final two weekends of the season, just for touring its last eleven ski-in/ski-out condos. They’ve been dropped in price an average of $50,000 since Jan. 1. That includes another $20,000 knocked off the price of nine oneand-two-bedroom units timed to the ski season close. “We’re ready

WHERE: Ski free at Granby Ranch for touring Base Camp One; closeout of final ski-in/out condos including two 3-bedrooms; year-round amenities, golf, bike/Nordic trails, fishing lease; Fannie Mae approved; 2 ski passes to new customers who tour. 300 Base Camp Cir., Granby; from I-70 take U.S. 40 west 43 mi. (15 mi. past Winter Park) to Village Rd., right 2 mi. to Granby Ranch Real Estate Center on left PRICE: From $172,500; final 3-bedroom $399,000 WHEN: Today, Saturday, Sunday & daily 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. PHONE: 970-887-5250 WEB: BaseCampLiving.com

to leave,â€? says Greg Finch of Base Camp One’s builder, Dundee Resort Development. Dundee saw its final 3-bedroom condos literally fly off the shelf when it cut prices just before New Year’s (there’re two left, from $399,000). With this newest price cut, one 2-bedroom ski-in/out unit is now under $250,000; one ski-in/out 1-bedroom is only $172,500. That lowest priced unit, with click-in/out access to three base lifts and the lodge, is also wrapped in four-season amenities that owners use as much as the skiing. “That’s what we like best about it,â€? says Susan Barnhart of Centennial, who with husband Chuck bought a one-bedroom in 2010 -- and have hosted a bunch of friends there each Thanksgiving since. They’ll do it again this year – but now in a roomy 3-bedroom unit that they picked up at a close-out price. The Barnharts, who have grandkids aged 8 and 5, report the same thing as other Base Camp One residents: that Base Camp One is a decidedly better ski experience for families, where kids make friends that they link up with during repeat visits, and where they get to explore more on their own. Meanwhile, the couple has gotten to know other Base Camp One owners – around the firepit, and over après-ski evenings at Granby Ranch Grill, fifty yards from their condo. That family-oriented year-around experience is drawing a dedicated skier to Granby Ranch, according to marketing director Lisa Craig, who saw the resort log its biggest-ever February last month. “A lot of people flock to us because of our ski school,â€? she adds, noting that Granby Ranch’s ‘direct-to-parallel’ program – skipping the old snowplow method –- is

The ski-free offer requires touring the final units – all priced to close-out these two final weekends.

CLEMENTS «FROM 1A four-door Cadillac with Colorado license plates that was speeding south in Texas on Thursday. Colorado authorities had urged the public to be on the lookout for a dark Cadillac or Lincoln seen near Clements’ home Tuesday night. Clements, the executive director of the state Department of Corrections, was shot as he opened the door of his Monument home. Wise County Sheriff David Walker said at a news conference that the suspect was wounded by deputies in a gun battle and was on life support and considered brain-dead at John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth. The chase and gun battle began with a routine traffic stop by a Montague County sheriff’s deputy at the intersection of U.S. 287 and Texas 59 in Texas, the Wise County Messenger reported. The Cadillac driver shot the deputy and fled, reaching speeds of up to 100 mph and firing from his window at pursuing officers, Walker said. The Cadillac eventually was smashed by an 18-wheeler in Decatur, northwest of Fort Worth, and the driver emerged with a handgun. He fired several rounds at officers, who then returned fire, Walker said. “He didn’t plan on being taken alive,” said Rex Hoskins, the police chief in Decatur. “He was trying to hurt somebody.” Hoskins told the Messenger that the suspect fired 20 to 30 rounds from an automatic or semiautomatic weapon. Authorities have not yet officially identified the suspect. His fingerprints were being taken to confirm his identity, Texas authorities said. “There’s no identification on him — nothing,” Walker said. “He needed to be taken off the street, no matter what,” Walker said. Colorado law enforcement officials flew to Texas to investigate the man in connection with the killing of Clements and others, Walker said. Colorado authorities are investigating whether there is a connection between the Cadillac driver and the slaying of 27-year-old pizza-delivery driver Nathan Collin Leon, who answered a call in Denver on Sunday and was shot multiple times. “I heard it’s possibly connected,” El Paso County Sheriff’s Sgt. Joe Roybal said. Denver police spokeswoman Raquel Lopez said Denver and Golden detectives were on their way to Texas to join the investigation. “We’re not talking about evidence,” she said. On their Twitter feed, Denver police said, “There is a strong connection with the Texas case.” Reached at his police station Thursday night, Hoskins said he knew of no evidence that linked the Cadillac to the Leon case. “There’s nothing that’s been pro-

cessed in that car,” he said. “It’s locked up and will be processed by the Texas Rangers tomorrow.” El Paso County investigators are en route to Texas to probe possible links between Ebel and Clements’ death. Clements, 58, was shot in the chest at about 8:45 p.m. Tuesday as he answered the door of his home on Colonial Park Drive in Monument. His wife, Lisa, called 911. Sheriff’s officials said robbery was not a motive. At least one witness reported seeing a dark Cadillac or Lincoln that was running with no one in it shortly before the shooting. There are no street lights in the area. The driver of the Cadillac or Lincoln emerged as the main person of interest in Clements’ shooting, but Colorado officials stopped short of directly linking the Texas and Monument events. “The El Paso County Sheriff’s Office has been in contact with authorities in Texas since the time they were involved in a pursuit and officer involved shooting earlier today,” the sheriff’s office said in a statement late Thursday. “We began a high level of information exchange and have since sent some of our investigators to Texas to meet with the authorities there and get a better sense on whether or not the suspect from Texas is linked to the Clements shooting.” A public memorial service for Clements is set for Monday at New Life Church, 11025 Voyager Parkway in Colorado Springs. A private funeral is set for Sunday. Clements was heralded by Gov. John Hickenlooper and others for a long list

Barnum was shot to death by Englewood police during a confrontation in 2012. Unlike other gangs, 211 Crew members are recruited in prison and, once released, are responsible for making money for the gang, according to stories previously published in The Post. In 2005, Jim Welton, commander of the Safe Streets Metro Gang Task Force, said the 211 Crew was different from any other prison-based gang he’d seen in his entire law enforcement career. Once a gang member joins, death is the only way out, Welton said at the time.

Evan Ebel is not the first member of the white-supremacist prison gang to make headlines. The 211 Crew has been at the center of multiple high-profile crimes in Colorado. The gang takes its name from California’s penal code for robbery. One of Denver’s most notorious racially motivated murders took place Nov. 18, 1997, and involved a 211 Crew member. Jeremiah Barnum, 38, was an accessory to the killing of African immigrant Oumar Dia, who was shot while waiting for a downtown bus. The night of Dia’s murder, Barnum was hanging out with Nathan Thill, a self-described neo-Nazi. After racial slurs were said to Dia,

The memorial will be at 10 a.m. at New Life Church, 11025 Voyager Parkway, Colorado Springs. A private funeral is set for Sunday. Details about that funeral will not be released. Media and the community are asked to respect the family’s request for privacy. Clements, 58, was shot Tuesday night as he answered the door of his home in Monument.

Ebel spent years in solitary, mom wrote By John Ingold The Denver Post

Evan Ebel, the man investigators are focusing on in the slaying of Colorado corrections chief Tom Clements, has spent most of his adult life in prison. His first adult criminal conviction came when he was 19, in a robbery case, according to a Lexis-Nexis case summary. That was followed by an eightyear prison sentence a year later in another robbery case. He spent much of at least five years in solitary confinement, according to a post his mother wrote on a memorial website for his sister, who died in a car accident when Ebel was a teenager. In Cañon City, he was kept in his cell 23 hours a day, she wrote. When they visited, she could speak to him only through a thick pane of glass.

“hard decisions when he was younger hoping to avoid where he is now.”

Deep roots of trouble Ebel, now 28, pleaded guilty to a felony robbery charge in Jefferson County in 2004 and was sentenced to three years in community corrections. In the second robbery case, Ebel pleaded guilty in Adams County in 2005 to a felony assault charge. He was sentenced in that case to eight years in prison. At the same time, Ebel pleaded guilty to a felony menacing charge in Adams County in a separate case. He was sentenced to three years in prison in that case. Ebel picked up another charge while in prison. In 2006, he was charged with assaulting a guard. He pleaded guilty in that case in 2008 and received an extra four years. Robinson said he knew Ebel because he coached Ebel’s sister in softball. He said he tried to keep up with Ebel through occasional conversations with Ebel’s father — who is also an attorney — but that he had lost touch with the family in recent years. Neither of Ebel’s parents could be reached for comment. Ebel’s sister was killed in a car accident in 2004, when she was 16, according to a Denver Post obituary. Shortly after the girl’s death, Ebel’s mom created the memorial website, where over the years she has posted heartfelt tributes to her daughter and also mentions of her son’s struggles. In his mother’s words, Ebel liked to read, study and write poetry. In one post, she called him a “history buff.” He had read “War and Peace” multiple times. “Evan talks about his plans for the future, more about him meeting someone and having a family,” she wrote in a post describing his life in prison. But she also hinted at the deep roots of Ebel’s troubles. In the same post, she referred to her and Ebel’s father making

Challenging transition More recently — as his release neared — his mother wrote of her excitement and her anxiety about what life would be like for her son outside prison walls. “I cannot imagine the transition for him as it has been really hard day to day,” his mother, Jody Mangue, wrote in a post within the past several months. Mangue’s words cut against the details of the man under police scrutiny, suspected of shooting at officers during a high-speed chase. Likewise, a prominent Denver defense attorney who once represented Ebel was shocked Thursday when told of Ebel’s possible connection to Clements’ killing. “It’s unimaginably terrible,” Scott Robinson said. “He was a young man who had real promise as a human being.” Robinson represented Ebel in several criminal cases in Jefferson and Adams counties.

She said he had been in “behavioral programs” beginning when he was 12 in places as far

NATION & WORLD HOUSE PASSES BUDGET TO FUND GOVERNMENT ON BIPARTISAN VOTE washington» Moving on two fronts, the Republican-controlled House on Thursday voted to keep the government running for the next six months while pushing through a Tea Party-flavored budget for next year that would shrink the government by another $4.6 trillion over the next decade. The spending authorization on its way to the White House for President Barack Obama’s signature leaves in place $85 billion in spending cuts to the Pentagon and domestic agencies. The House passed the bipartisan 2013 Ryan measure by a sweeping 318-109 vote. The nonbinding GOP budget plan for 2014 and beyond calls for a balanced budget in 10 years and sharp cuts in safety-net programs for the poor and other domestic programs. The plan, offered by Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, R-Wis., passed the House on a mostly party-line 221-207 vote, with 10 Republicans joining Democrats against it. The Senate soundly rejected Ryan’s plan later Thursday. Five Republicans joined every Democrat present to kill the measure, which failed on a 40-59 vote. Meanwhile, the Democrat-controlled Senate debated for a second day its first budget since the 2009 plan that helped Obama pass his health-care law. A vote on the Senate measure is expected late Friday or early Saturday. The Associated Press

80 MILLION MORE CANDLES New baby picture of universe shows it to be older, fatter, a bit lopsided

BBB

LIBRARY OF CONGRESS ADDS “SILENCE,” “TWIST” washington» Simon & Garfunkel’s song “The Sound of Silence,” written amid the turmoil after President John Kennedy’s assassination, and Chubby Checker’s 1960s dance hit “The Twist” are among 25 recordings selected for preservation at the Library of Congress. These are just a few sounds of the 20th century added to the National Recording Registry on Thursday for long-term preservation for their cultural, artistic and historic importance. Garfunkel, 71, said he’s thrilled and flattered to have his work preserved in the Library of Congress. “There’s something fundamentally appealing about the simplicity of those lines,” he said. The recording that received the highest number of public nominations for this year’s registry was Pink Floyd’s “The Dark Side of the Moon.” The library said it was notable as an example of “brilliant, innovative production in service of the music.” Other selections included the 1949 cast album for “South Pacific” and the soundtrack to the 1977 movie “Saturday Night Fever,” starring John Travolta and featuring the Bee Gees, which revived the disco craze. The selections span from 1918 to 1980 and represent nearly every musical and recording category. The Associated Press Art Garfunkel, left, and Paul Simon F Associated Press file

The European Space Agency released a relic radiation map from the Big Bang, composed of data gathered by the ESA’s Planck satellite. The 50-million-pixel image of the oldest light adds an edge of precision to cosmological theories. ESA, AFP/Getty Images

By Dennis Overbye The New York Times

A

stronomers released the latest and most exquisite baby picture yet of the universe on Thursday, one that showed it to be 80 million to 100 million years older and a little fatter, with more light and dark matter than previously thought, and perhaps ever so slightly lopsided. Recorded by the European Space Agency’s Planck satellite, the image is a heat map of the cosmos as it appeared only 380,000 years after the Big Bang, showing space speckled with faint spots from which galaxies would grow over billions of years. The map, the Planck team said in news conferences and in 29 papers posted online Thursday morning, is in stunning agreement with the general view of the universe that has emerged during the past 20 years, of a cosmos dominated by dark energy that is pushing it apart and dark matter that is pulling galaxies together. It also shows a universe that seems to have endured an explosive burp known as inflation, which was the dynamite in the Big Bang. In a statement issued by the European Space Agency, Jean-Jacques Dordain, its director-general, said, “The extraordinary quality of Planck’s portrait of the infant universe allows us to peel back its

layers to the very foundations, revealing that our blueprint of the cosmos is far from complete.” Marc Kamionkowski, an astrophysicist at Johns Hopkins University who commented on the work at a news teleconference sponsored by NASA, called Planck “cosmology’s human genome project,” saying, “It shows the seeds from which the current universe grew.” Within the standard cosmological framework, however, the new satellite data underscored the existence of puzzling anomalies that might yet lead theorists back to the drawing board. The universe appears to be slightly lumpier, with bigger and more heat spots on one side than on the other, for example, and there is an unexplained cool spot in the middle of the map. Those anomalies had shown up on previous maps by NASA’s Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe, or WMAP, satellite, but some had argued that they were because of a bad analysis or contamination from the Milky Way. Now cosmologists will have to take them more seriously, said Max Tegmark, an expert on the early universe at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology who was not part of the Planck team and who termed the new results “very exciting.” It could be, he said, that “the universe is

trying to tell us something.” The Planck satellite was launched in 2009 and has been scanning the sky ever since, recording the faint variations in a haze of radio microwaves that fill the sky. Those microwaves are thought to be the cooled-off remains of the fires of the Big Bang, shown 380,000 years later, when the first hydrogen atoms formed. Analyzing the relative sizes and frequencies of spots and ripples has allowed astronomers to describe the birth of the universe to a precision that would make the philosophers weep. The new data have allowed astronomers to tweak their model a bit. It now seems the universe is 13.8 billion years old, instead of 13.7 billion, and consists by mass of 4.9 percent atoms, 27 percent dark matter and 71 percent dark energy. The biggest surprise here, astronomers said, is that the universe is expanding slightly more slowly than previous measurements had indicated. The Hubble constant, which characterizes the expansion rate, is 67 kilometers per second per megaparsec — the units astronomers use. Recent ground-based measurements combined with the WMAP data gave a value of 69, offering enough of a discrepancy to make cosmologists rerun their computer simulations of cosmic history.

The president urges the Israelis and Palestinians to set aside key issues that are keeping them from the table. By Scott Wilson The Washington Post

jerusalem» President Barack Obama made an impassioned appeal Thursday for renewed peace talks between Israelis and Palestinians, urging each side to compromise on key issues so as to sideline extremists who “thrive on conflict.” During a visit to the West Bank city of Ramallah, Obama urged Palestinian leaders to quickly resume peace negotiations with Israel, setting aside their condition that the Israeli government first stop building on land that the Palestinians view as part of their future state. Later, in an address to the Israeli people at the Jerusalem Convention Center, Obama also called on Israelis to respect the Palestinians’ right to self-determination and justice. “Put yourself in their shoes,” he said in a speech frequently interrupted by cheers from the audience of university students and once by a heckler. He urged Israelis to recognize that continued settlement construction in the West Bank “is counterproductive to the cause of peace.” Although changes sweeping the Arab world might prompt Israelis to “turn inward,” Obama said, “This is precisely the time to respond to the wave of revolution with a resolve for peace.” At a news conference in Ramallah with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, Obama said that although

President Barack Obama, left, and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas shake hands at a news conference Thursday in the West Bank city of Ramallah. Larry Downing, Reuters the Israeli settlement activity is an obstacle to a peace accord, it should not prevent the Palestinians from returning to the negotiating table. He said he thinks it is “still possible” to achieve a peace deal that establishes an independent Palestinian state and gives Israel security, but he conceded that it would be “very difficult.” Obama’s language about settlements ap-

peared to be softer than in 2009, when he said he could not accept the “legitimacy” of Israeli settlements and called for a freeze. Abbas said in opening remarks at the news conference that his talks with Obama focused on “the disastrous risk of settlements on the twostate solution” and on the need to release Palestinian prisoners held by Israel.

Nation & World PAKISTAN BOMB KILLS 13 IN REFUGEE CAMP peshawar, pakistan» A car packed with explosives blew up inside a refugee camp Thursday, killing 13 people in an attack that underscored the intensity of the conflict between the government and militants in northwestern Pakistan where refugees are sometimes caught in the middle of the fighting. The blast occurred in Jalozai camp, about 19 miles southwest of Peshawar, one of three camps in Pakistan for people displaced by the fighting in the northwest. In addition to the 13 killed, another 25 people were wounded in the blast that happened just as hundreds of people lined up to get food, police officials said.

Fargo told to prepare for big flooding

B fargo, n.d.» With its ominously titled slideshow, “Get ready for a big one,” the National Weather Service told flood-weary residents in the Fargo area Thursday to prepare for one of the Red River’s five largest crests this spring, an outlook that prompted city and county officials to plead for permanent flood protection. The latest weather service flood outlook for Fargo and neighboring Moorhead, Minn., includes a 50 percent chance that the river would top 38 feet this spring, which would surpass the fifth-highest crest of 37.34 feet in 1969. There’s a 10 percent chance of an all-time record. Thousands of supporters demonstrate for jailed Kurdish rebel leader Abdullah Ocalan on Thursday in Diyarbakir, Turkey. The Associated Press

“Guns must be silenced” Kurdish rebel leader calls for truce in fight against Turkish government By Mucahit Ceylan and Suzan Fraser The Associated Press

ankara, turkey» In a major step toward ending one of the world’s longest, bloodiest insurgencies, the Kurds’ jailed rebel leader called Thursday for a “new era” of peace that includes an immediate cease-fire and the withdrawal of thousands of his fighters from Turkey. Abdullah Ocalan’s rebel group, the Kurdistan Workers’ Party, or PKK, has been waging a nearly 30-year battle against the Turkish government, seeking autonomy and greater rights. The fight has killed tens of thousands of people, and the group is considered a terrorist organization by Turkey and its Western allies, including the U.S. The Turkish government reacted cautiously, but Ocalan’s announcement at a Kurdish spring festival was met with joy from the hundreds of thousands who gathered to hear it in Diyarbakir, the largest city in Turkey’s mainly Kurdish southeast. “We have reached the point where the guns must be silenced and where ideas must speak. A new era has started, where politics, not guns, are at the forefront,” Ocalan said in a call from jail relayed by pro-Kurdish legislators in both Kurdish and Turkish. People in the sprawling crowd sang, danced and waved rebel flags or banners with images of Ocalan. They appeared cheered at the prospect of an end to the conflict that has dominated the southeast for so long. “Ocalan has paved the way for a historic peace process,” said Mesut Yegin of Istanbul’s Sehir University. “He has declared in no uncertain terms that the era of an armed struggle is ending.” Turkey announced in December that it was talking to Ocalan with the aim of persuading the PKK to disarm. Despite his 14-year incarceration in a prison island off Istanbul, Ocalan still wields great power over his rebel group. PKK commanders based in northern Iraq have declared support for the peace initiative, and Kurdish fighters in Turkey were expected to heed Ocalan’s call and retreat to northern Iraq. Nevertheless, Turkish officials sounded a note of caution Thursday. “I see (the call) as a positive development, but it is its implementation that is important,” Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said during a visit to the Netherlands. “We need to see to what extent (the rebels) respond to it.”

vatican city» The election of a Jesuit pope devoted to the poor and stressing a message of mercy rather than condemnation has brought a glimmer of hope to American nuns who have been the subject of a Vatican crackdown, according to interviews with several groups.

ria Zoo says it’s turning to technology with infra-red cameras to search for a 6½-footlong black mamba snake that escaped from its enclosure a week ago. Marketing manager Craig Allenby of the zoo in South Africa’s capital said Thursday the missing snake probably is in the roof of a service building behind its terrarium. That has not stopped fearful callers to radio talk shows discussing the nearly always fatal results of a bite from one of the world’s fastest and most venomous snakes.

Senate panel endorses Jewell for chief of Interior B washington» The Senate Energy Committee on Thursday endorsed President Barack Obama’s nomination of Sally Jewell to be Interior secretary, moving her nomination to the Senate floor for an expected vote next month. The committee’s 19-3 vote in favor of Jewell came after current Interior Secretary Ken Salazar agreed to review a decision blocking construction of a gravel road through a wildlife refuge to provide access to an all-weather airport in rural Alaska. Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, had threatened to hold up Jewell’s nomination unless the Obama administration agreed to a land exchange that would allow the road, which would grant access to an allweather airport for the remote community of King Cove, on the Bering Sea in southwestern Alaska.

Suicide bomber kills at least 41 in Sunni mosque in Damascus By Zeina Karam The Associated Press

beirut» A suicide bombing tore through a mosque in the Syrian capital Thursday, killing a top Sunni Muslim preacher and longtime supporter of President Bashar Assad along with at least 41 other people. The assassination of Sheikh Mohammad Said Ramadan al-Buti removes one of the few remaining pillars of support for the Alawite leader among the majority sect that has risen up against him. The explosion struck as al-Buti, an 84-yearold cleric and religious scholar who appeared often on TV, was giving a religious lesson in the Eman Mosque in the central Mazraa district of Damascus, according to state TV. Suicide bombings blamed on Islamic extremists fighting with the rebels have become common in Syria’s 2-year-old civil war. But the explosion Thursday marked the first time a suicide bomber detonated his explosives inside a mosque.

Syrian TV said 84 people were wounded in the explosion. Sirens wailed through the capital as ambulances rushed to the scene, which was sealed off by the military. Among those killed were al-Buti’s grandson, the TV said. Al-Buti’s death was a big blow to Syria’s embattled leader, who is fighting mainly Sunni rebels seeking his ouster. Al-Buti has been a vocal supporter of his regime since the early days of Assad’s father and predecessor, the late President Hafez Assad. Sunnis are the majority sect in Syria while Assad is from the minority Alawite sect — an offshoot of Shiite Islam. He was the regular preacher of the eighth century Omayyad Mosque, but Syrian TV said he was giving a religious sermon to students at Eman Mosque when the explosion occurred. In recent months, Syrian TV has carried his sermon from mosques in Damascus live every week. He also has a regular religious TV program.

Jesuit pope o≠ers hope to U.S. nuns targeted in crackdown Dolan says he expects Pope Francis to bring “freshness” to the debate.

Big, venomous snake escapes from zoo enclosure B johannesburg» The Preto-

en Religious, the largest umbrella group for U.S. nuns, unleashed a wave of popular support for the sisters, including parish vigils, protests outside the Vatican embassy in Washington and a U.S. congressional resolution commending the sisters for their service to the country. The Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith ordered up the doctrinal assessment of the LCWR in 2009, about the same time another Vatican department launched an investigation into the 340 women’s religious orders in the country in a bid to try to stem the decline in their numbers. But the doctrine investigation led the Vatican to impose a full-scale

reform of the conference after determining the sisters had taken positions that undermined Catholic teaching on the priesthood and homosexuality while promoting “radical feminist themes incompatible with the Catholic faith.” Investigators praised the nuns’ humanitarian work but accused them of ignoring critical issues, including fighting abortion. In an interview this week, U.S. Cardinal Timothy Dolan, the head of the U.S. bishops’ conference, said he expected Pope Francis would bring “freshness” and understanding to the debate, given Francis’ experience as a Jesuit familiar with the problems of life in religious orders.

Dolan said: “I think the greatest thing he’s going to bring is to say to everybody ‘Be not afraid. We’re friends. We’re on this journey together. We can speak openly to one another. We both have things to learn. We both have changes we need to make and let’s serve one another best by being trusting and charitable yet honest to one another.’ ” Sister Nancy Sylvester of the Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary from Monroe, Mich., who has held leadership posts in U.S. sisters’ groups, said she is encouraged by Francis’ emphasis on the poor. “His experience clearly has changed him and I think those are good signs,” Sylvester said.

Scotland to vote on independence in 2014 B london» Voters in Scotland will head to the polls in September 2014 to decide whether to go it alone as an independent country or remain in Great Britain with England and Wales. The referendum could lead to the biggest political shake-up in the British Isles since Ireland achieved independence nearly a century ago. Alex Salmond, Scotland’s first minister, unveiled the date of the milestone vote Thursday in the Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh.

Sarkozy faces charges B paris» A lawyer says preliminary charges have been filed against former President Nicolas Sarkozy in connection with allegations he illegally took donations from France’s richest woman for his 2007 election campaign. Lawyer Antoine Gillot told French TV i-Tele that Judge Jean-Michel Gentil in the southwestern city of Bordeaux placed Sarkozy under investigation — a step short of formal charges — after hours of questioning Thursday. Sarkozy in November was named a key and potentially indictable witness in an investigation involving 90-year-old L’Oreal heiress Liliane Bettencourt. Senate gun bill will include background checks B washington» Gun control legislation the Senate debates next month will include an expansion of federal background checks for firearms buyers, Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday in a victory for advocates of gun restrictions. The announcement underscores that Democrats intend to take an aggressive approach in the effort to broaden the checks, currently required only for transactions involving federally licensed firearms dealers.

Archbishop of Canterbury enthroned

B london» The new archbishop of Canterbury was formally enthroned Thursday. Justin Welby is the 105th archbishop of Canterbury, serving as head of the Church of England and spiritual leader of the world’s 77 million-strong Anglican Communion. Welby was formally enthroned at the 900-year-old Canterbury Cathedral in southern England before politicians, including Prime Minister David Cameron and religious leaders. Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla, also attended.

Chicago plan to close schools draws ire Opponents say that shuttering the 54 schools amid a $1 billion budget shortfall will mostly affect minority children. By Jason Keyser and Sara Burnett The Associated Press

chicago» Chicago Public Schools officials said Thursday they plan to close 54 schools in an effort to address a $1 billion budget shortfall and improve a struggling educational system — a plan that drew the ire of parents and teachers. District CEO Barbara Byrd-Bennett and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel say the closures are necessary because too many CPS buildings are half-empty. The nation’s third-largest district, CPS has about 403,000 students but has seats for more than 500,000, officials say. Opponents say the closures will dis-

proportionately affect minority children and endanger students who might have to cross gang boundaries to attend school. The plan will affect about 30,000 students, CPS officials said. They say money being spent to keep underutilized schools open could be better used to educate students elsewhere. “Every child in every neighborhood in Chicago deserves access to a high quality education that prepares them to succeed in life, but for too long children in certain parts of Chicago have been cheated out of the resources they need to succeed because they are in underutilized, under-resourced schools,” Byrd-Bennett said. “As a former teacher and a principal, I’ve lived through school closings and I know that this will not be easy, but I also know that in the end this will benefit our children.” Critics say the closings are unnecessary and will devastate communities, particularly poor, minority neighborhoods.

Sandra Leon said she got a tearful call from her grandchildren’s kindergarten teacher saying their school was on the list to be closed. Her two grown children also attended the school, and Leon couldn’t suppress tears as she waited outside the building for her grandchildren. “It’s been so good for our kids,” Leon said. “This school is everything.” Chicago is among several major U.S. cities, including Philadelphia, Washington and Detroit to use mass school closures to reduce costs and offset declining enrollment. Detroit has closed more than 130 schools since 2005, including more than 40 in 2010 alone. The issue has again pitted Emanuel against the Chicago Teachers Union, whose 26,000 members went on strike early in the school year, idling students for seven days. It has also put Emanuel and Byrd-Bennett at odds with parents, civic leaders and lawmakers, who have

blasted the pair during highly charged community meetings throughout the city and at a legislative hearing this week. Many of the schools identified for closure are in high-crime areas of Chicago where gang violence contributed to a marked increase in the city’s homicide rate last year. The district plans to have community groups help students get to their new locations safely. In addition to the 54 school closures, students at 11 other schools will be “colocated” with existing schools. Six schools have been targeted for academic interventions known as “turnaround.’ CPS says the plan will save the district $560 million over 10 years in capital costs and an additional $43 million per year in operating costs. The district plans to invest $233 million into what it calls the “welcoming” schools, or the buildings that students in closed schools will be moving to.

AHERN, CINDY LUREA (CAMERON) 54, of Thornton, passed away March 18, 2013. Survived by her husband, Jim, her Mother, 3 sisters, a brother, and 4 puppy-Kiddos. Cindy enjoyed long careers at Auto-trol Technology for 16 years and for 13 years at L. Nothhaft and Sons. A celebration of her life, Erie Community Center, March 23, as an open house from 2 - 6 PM.

ASHER, ROBERT HARRISON Robert H. Asher, age 87, passed away on Friday, March 15. He will be remembered lovingly by his son, Michael; daughter-in-law, Carolyn; sonin-law, Craig Foster; five grandchildren: Cheryl (Sean), Matthew (Julie), Nicholas (Leah), Mark (Jennifer), and Peter, as well as great-granddaughter, Ellie. He was predeceased by his beloved wife, Sheila and cherished daughter Julie. Robert was born in Great Bend, Kansas. He served in the U.S. Air Force and graduated from the University of Colorado with undergraduate and law degrees. He worked for Mobil oil Corporation for 46 years, rising to the position of General Counsel of the International Exploration and Producing Division. Robert was generous in nature, always quick with a compliment, and a friend to many at Holly Creek. He enjoyed and evening martini straight up with two olives, loved playing golf with his family, delighted in driving his purple Mercedes convertible, and really like dancing to Big Band music, claiming to have invented "The Bird Dog Hop". The family is especially grateful to Robert's caregiver, Hellyn, who faithfully tended to his needs in the final six months of his life. A most fitting quotation for this man who embraced life is from George Bernard Shaw. "I want to be thoroughly used up when I die..." Robert Harrison Asher certainly lived life to the fullest. The family plans a private memorial ceremony at Holly Creek Retirement Community and a burial in Walton, Connecticut.

Vicki Sue Janzen Bartel, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend was born May 10, 1945 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma and passed away peacefully March 14, 2013 in Keller, Texas, surrounded by her loving family. Family and friends will celebrate the life and love of Vicki Saturday, March 23, 10:00AM, at Keller United Methodist Church located at 1025 Johnson Rd, Keller, Tx 76248. In lieu of flowers, the family has requested donations be made in Vicki's memory to the American Cancer Society with a focus on cancer research. The daughter of Ethel and Allen Janzen of Clinton, Oklahoma, Vicki graduated from Oklahoma City University with a Bachelor of Arts in Music Education in 1967. During college she met and married the love of her life, Stan Bartel of Ardmore, Oklahoma, in 1965. An extraordinary musician, Vicki made the most of Stan's several business, initiated moves making music, directing choirs, and serving as organist, in many states including Texas, Oklahoma, Colorado and California. Vicki was a consummate teacher who inspired her students, teaching private piano lessons, choral music in school systems, and serving as a church choral director. A high point for Vicki and Stan were three and a half years from 1992-1995 spent in a small community, Mouans Sartoux, in the South of France. Vicki served the Cannes, France religious music community at the Notre Dame de Bon Voyage Catholic Church under the guidance and mentorship of Henri Porteau, the director of music there. She was graciously embraced by the local French community and became the assistant organist and assistant choir director. She was invited by the Cannes Ministry of Culture to be the American Guest Organist for three consecutive summers at the Sunday evening concerts sponsored by the Ministry of Culture. Her love of French composers made her a favorite of the local French community. She studied and received organ lessons from organ masters in Cannes, Nice, Monte Carlo, St Maximin, Lyon and Geneva. At the time of her return to the USA in September, 1995, she was presented the Medaille D'Argent, (the silver medal equivalent to the key to the City) by the Mayor of Cannes in a champagne reception at the Cannes Palais de Festival. Over 300 local and international musicians and friends were there to honor her in an event which was locally televised. Vicki and Stan loved to travel, play golf and spend time with each other and their family, especially grandson Trenton Swain. Vicki is survived by her beloved husband Stan, son David Bartel of Marble Falls, Tx, daughter Julie Elizabeth Swain, son-in-law Brian Swain, grandson Trenton Swain of Keller, Texas, sister Elizabeth Janzen Smith of Denver, Co, sister Janet Caille of Ft Collins, Co, nieces Jennifer Lowry, Jessica Finnessy, Kristen Lamb and nephew Adam Lamb.

MCKINNEY, CYNTHIA DEE "CINDY" 1951-2013 Cynthia Dee McKinney of Brighton, CO, died unexpectedly on March 17, 2013. Born in Lynwood, CA on March 10, 1951, she attended South Gate High School in South Gate, CA before moving to Colorado in 1981. Cindy is survived by her three sons, two daughterin-laws and eight wonderful grandchildren, who lovingly referred to her as "Maca". Her family includes Todd and Desiree McKinney and their sons, Tyler and Chase, of Thornton, CO; son, Deron McKinney and his children, Caiden of Brighton, CO and Baylee, and Brenden of Thornton, CO; and Jeremy and Anya McKinney, and their children, Brayden, Gannon and Ashlyn, of Pearland, TX. She is further survived by her brother, Fred Miller of Phoenix and her sister, Ann Miller, of Colville, WA. She was predeceased in death by her parents, Fred and Adelyn Miller of Vista, CA. Cindy worked as the manager of volunteer services at Tennyson Center for Children, Colorado's leader in the treatment and education of abused, neglected and at-risk children. For nearly 30 years, Cindy has been a beloved member of the Tennyson Center family. Anyone who had the pleasure of knowing her knew that there was no one quite like Cindy. Her energy was boundless; her laughter was infectious; her presence lit up any room she walked into; and her dedication to the kids and the mission of Tennyson Center for Children was unparalleled. Cindy worked with thousands of our volunteers and donors over the course of her career and was the embodiment of Tennyson Center's vision of "Changing Lives and Giving Hope." As the "big sister" and "surrogate mom," she customized love for each of the kids and knew what was important to each child and each volunteer. She truly was the "Spirit of Tennyson." A funeral service will be held Friday, March 22, 2013 at 11 a.m. at Central Christian Church, 3690 E Cherry Creek South Drive, in Denver. Her family requests that in lieu of flowers, donations be sent to The Cindy McKinney memorial fund at Tennyson Center for Children, 2950 Tennyson Street, Denver, CO 80212 or online at https://www.childabuse.org/donate

OPINION William Dean Singleton, Chairman & Publisher

“There is no hope for the satisfied man.” Post founder Frederick G. Bonfils, 1861-1933

Ed Moss, President, Chief Executive Officer Gregory L. Moore, Editor J. Damon Cain, Managing Editor/Presentation Kevin Dale, News Director Curtis Hubbard, Editor of the Editorial Pages

The Post Editorials

Enact a federal online sales tax A federal mechanism would allow states to collect sales taxes that are due but virtually no one pays.

T

here’s a big push under way to get the U.S. Senate to add an online sales tax measure to a budget bill being debated in Washington. We think it’s a good idea. We have long supported a federal mechanism enabling states to be able to collect sales tax that already is due but virtually no one pays. The loophole exists because of court decisions predating widespread Internet use, and laws that haven’t kept up with the times. In the next few days, senators likely will be asked in a non-binding vote to attach the Marketplace Fairness Act to the Senate’s version of the 2014 federal budget. We hope they do so. Colorado Sens. Michael Bennet and Mark Udall have expressed support for the concept embodied in the Internet sales tax measure, and deserve credit for taking that stand. The National Conference of State Legislatures estimates that $23 billion of revenue went unrealized in 2012 due to the inability to compel collection. In Colorado, the number was $352 million for a variety of categories that include everything from buying something from an online retailer located in a different state, to catalog sales conducted by mail. Exactly how much Colorado would

see in revenue increases would depend upon how such a measure ultimately was crafted, but in just about any scenario, it would be significant. In order for Colorado to be able to take advantage of the Marketplace Fairness Act, should it pass, the legislature would have to pass enabling legislation. The state would have to develop tax software that would compute the tax owed based on where a buyer lives. The rates are different in the state’s many tax districts. It would be Colorado’s responsibility to distribute the revenue to the different jurisdictions. As it stands, people who buy online often don’t pay sales tax that is owed because there is no way to compel collection. Beyond collection of revenue, the idea would level the playing field for businesses that pay to maintain a presence in communities and employ people who live there. They are getting killed by many online retailers who can offer goods sales-tax free. The measure has bipartisan support in Congress, which is saying something given the fractious nature of our times. A successful vote on the Internet sales tax would offer hope that Congress can come together and pass important and sensible measures.

The Open Forum Letters to the Editor Debating capital punishment in Colorado

Drivers vs. pedestrians

Re: “Should Colorado do away with the death penalty?” March 17 Point-Counterpoint columns.

Re: “Pedestrian accidents spike,” March 20 news story.

A common argument in favor of the death penalty is that the people to be executed “are very bad people,” or as Greg Dobbs said in his opinion piece, “scum” (“No: State inmates convicted of murder deserve their fates”). As a prosecutor, I think this argument misses the point. Prosecutors routinely deal with very bad people who have done unspeakable things to others. The question is not whether they are bad, or even deserving of execution. Rather, it’s whether a system can be devised to execute only those who truly deserve death: an efficient, practical, consistent system that is not improperly influenced by factors like race and doesn’t create collateral problems. In other words: the perfect application of the death penalty as punishment. Our history has shown that such an infallible system, because it’s designed by human beings, is not possible. As Justice Harry Blackmun noted, trying to get the death penalty procedure exactly right is “tinkering with the machinery of death.” It is a hopeless exercise and unseemly for a civilized society. Our legislature has better things to do.

There are many other factors in auto-pedestrian accidents than jaywalking and distracted driving: • Mid-block crossing can be safer than intersections. Five percent of drivers yield for pedestrians at crosswalks. The ticket penalty is very low. • The number of cars with blackened windows is rapidly increasing, reducing drivers’ ability to see, especially at night. • The state’s basic speed limit in residential areas is 30 mph. • The city of Denver and property owners allow bushes, signs, Dumpsters and parked cars to block the sight lines between drivers and pedestrians. Those who are assessing risk factors are too often drivers and spend little time as pedestrians and are not aware of the complexity of walking and interacting with drivers. If you want to get people out of their cars, into transit and on bicycles, pedestrian movement must have priority in policy — not vehicles.

Stan Garnett, District Attorney, Boulder County

BBB Kudos to Greg Dobbs. Like him, I am nauseated every time I open my Denver Post to see Nathan Dunlap laughing at me because he is still manipulating the system after 20 years. It is long past time for that human filth to man up and take the punishment the court ordered. The punishment he earned. The punishment he well deserves. The death penalty is not only fair, it is 100 percent effective. I have never heard of an executed murderer going on to murder again. I hope Gov. John Hickenlooper ignores any bleeding-heart pleas for the “mercy” that Dunlap didn’t show for his victims. Rich Graham, Longmont

Second Opinion

Keep fighting on federal ban of assault weapons This editorial originally appeared in Thursday’s San Jose Mercury News.

I

t’s no surprise that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid decided to exclude a ban on assault weapons from the gun safety legislation he’s bringing to the Senate floor. The measure is by far the most controversial idea proposed in the wake of the Newtown massacre, with even some Democrats opposing it. It would have doomed the bill’s passage. But an assault weapons ban is a common-sense measure supported in polling by a majority of Americans. It is doomed only because politicians are cowed by the National Rifle Association. So it’s worth taking a moment to consider the alarming amount of power the gun lobby holds over the people we elect to represent us. The Second Amendment to the Constitution — just like the First Amendment — is not absolute. Opposition to the ban is driven by fear of the politically powerful NRA, not concerns about whether it’s good policy. California Sen. Dianne Feinstein

gave the ban her best effort. Feinstein’s experience following the assassinations of George Moscone and Harvey Milk — she discovered Milk’s body — has for years driven her work on gun safety. She pledged to offer the ban as an amendment to the gun bill, even though she knew it wouldn’t pass. Still, she’s disappointed. “I tried my best,” she said, “but my best, I guess, wasn’t good enough.” A ban on high-capacity magazines — important because it would limit the lethality of still-legal assault weapons — also is in danger. Advocates seem more hopeful about two other measures: a crackdown on gun trafficking and the expansion of background checks to include gun show and private sales, both of which have overwhelming support in public opinion. All three would help limit opportunities for gun massacres while reducing the daily toll of gun violence. The failure of the assault weapons ban is a terrible disappointment, but for Feinstein and Americans who support the ban, this fight is a long way from over.

Denver Post opinion poll Results from previous poll:

Today’s question: Should efforts to repeal the death penalty in Colorado be handled in the legislature or at the ballot box? Legislature. This is what representative democracy is for. Ballot box. This is an issue the people should decide. I don’t know. I’m not sure which is best in this case. Neither. The issue does not need to be revisited.

Would you buy a vehicle that runs on natural gas? Yes: 18.9% No: 34.0% Maybe (if fueling stations were less scarce): 38.3% Unsure: 8.7% Total votes: 2,873

BBB I read Greg Dobbs’ argument in favor of the death penalty, which he makes in spite of his own acknowledgment that the arguments against it are compelling. He lost me when he claimed that what separates us from the countries that continue this barbaric practice is the thoroughness with which we practice it. Dobbs assures us that he’s all in favor of snuffing murderers who, I agree, deserve the ultimate penalty we can render for their crimes. He also acknowledges that sometimes mistakes are made, but that’s OK with him. I’m sure Dobbs is, as he stated, now willing to take the risk that someday he’ll be the victim of such a horrible mistake, if only we can continue to put to death those convicted of such crimes. One wonders how he’ll feel about it when he’s on death row, rather than writing a theoretical column from the comfort of Evergreen.

Pete Lister, Greeley

BBB Death penalty opponents apparently want to ignore the fact that some of our fellow humans are bad people who do bad things, including killing fellow humans in cold blood for no reason. Those bad people should not be able to take advantage of the kind-hearted people of the world in order to avoid paying an appropriate price for their crimes. As his recent mug shot suggests, Nathan Dunlap is laughing at those of us who think he deserves to live. Angela Williams (“Yes: Colorado needs another form of punishment”) argues that we do not have the right to take another person’s life. Actually, all American citizens are complicit in the death of innocent civilians on a massive scale — from Hiroshima and Nagasaki to Guatemala to Iraq. Like it or not, killing people is something we do frequently and efficiently. It is hard to understand why a convicted murderer like Dunlap should be spared while so many innocent civilians were not. Steve Laudeman, Denver

BBB While considering the point-counterpoint on Colorado’s death penalty, I found myself firmly straddling the line between the pros and cons. Yes, those who have dealt cruelly with the innocent lives of others deserve our harshest punishment, and 20 years of delay by filing appeal after appeal at an incredible monetary cost is unconscionable when the proof of guilt is absolutely undeniable. The death penalty should be carried out as sentenced within a reasonable period of time. However, since there are those who will deny the court’s decision, we have reached a point where the death penalty has become an intricate societal problem. Angela Williams’ opinion that Colorado needs another form of punishment deserves a “sound logic and a clear moral judgment.” There indeed should be a middle ground utilized. A life sentence served with 23-hour solitude without the benefits of socialization would be a harsh but just punishment for those who have relinquished their rights to a life spent even in the company of the general prison population.

The NFL rejected a deal between the Broncos and Elvis Dumervil because it arrived six minutes after the deadline. A slow fax machine is partly to blame. Joe Amon, The Denver Post

The Broncos’ fax pas Re: “Broncos release Dumervil because new contract too late,” March 16 news story.

Fax machines? Why in the world are the Denver Broncos and professional sports attorneys still using them? I am a real estate broker and have not used a fax machine for legal documents in two years. My electronic signature program (yes, that is legal) provides a quick, easy, secure and efficient way to obtain legal signatures from any number of parties either at the same time or sequentially. No paper jams, no waiting for documents to print, no strange black lines. I even get a date and time recording (to the second) of when the document was signed and when it was delivered. Would that have helped the 2 p.m. deadline [for filing Elvis Dumervil’s contract with the NFL]? My signed, legal documents are delivered to my laptop, desktop, tablet, smartphone and to an electronic filing system all at the same time. I can even have multiple individuals copied so everyone involved receives copies. Call me. I can help. It may take me two years to earn what the Broncos were willing to pay Elvis Dumervil for a week, but at least I am not waiting on a fax machine. Eric W. Blackhurst, Estes Park

Guest Commentary

Use road taxes for our roads

By Meredith C. Carroll

Y

By Brian T. Schwartz and Dennis Polhill

D

rivers can get more mileage from fuel taxes they already pay. But some states are considering increasing their fuel tax. It’s a bad idea. Much of Colorado’s existing 22 cents-per-gallon fuel tax does not maintain roads. Fuel taxes penalize less-wealthy drivers and encourage traffic congestion. There are better ways to finance roads. Instead of increasing taxes, the Colorado legislature should stop spending current fuel-tax revenue on rail transit and other boondoggles. For every dollar from state and local fuel and vehicle taxes, more than 19 cents supports “mass transit purposes,” according to 2010 federal highway statistics. Just as non-drivers should not subsidize roads, drivers’ taxes should not subsidize other services. Some argue that mass-transit benefits drivers by reducing traffic, so drivers should fund it. Nonsense. By such reasoning, government should force drivers to subsidize brakes for tractortrailers because drivers benefit when huge trucks have functioning brakes. The federal fuel tax is worse. “Only about 60 percent of the gas tax money … goes into highway and bridge construction,” former Transportation secretary Mary Peters told PBS. A Heritage Foundation analysis of the federal Highway Trust Fund (HTF) concurs: “[M]otorists will receive only about 62 percent of what they have paid into the fund for general purpose roads and safety programs.” The HTF is worse for Colorado drivers, who send the fund much more than Colorado gets back. Colorado would be better off keeping those dollars in state. According to the Government Accountability Office, if Colorado could opt out of the 18.4 cents-per-gallon federal fuel tax, it “could achieve the same funding level” it receives from the HTF with a replacement tax of just 13.8 cents-pergallon. That’s a 25 percent savings. The Colorado legislature and congressional delegation should work with other shortchanged states to opt out of the HTF. No longer would Coloradans send fuel and other taxes to Washington, only to get a fraction back with strings attached. Regardless of how governments spend fuel tax revenue, imposing fuel taxes to finance roads is unfair to lesswealthy drivers, who tend to drive older, less fuel-efficient cars. Fuel taxes also promote traffic congestion, which wastes time and wealth. Rush hour occurs because the price for road use — fuel taxes — does not increase during peak-demand hours. How bad is congestion? Around Denver and Aurora, the annual travel time delay per commuter was 45 hours, consuming 20 gallons of fuel, reports the Texas Transportation Institute. Congestion leads to dirtier air, too. Excess fuel burned annually around Denver and Aurora exceeded 34.5 million gallons, releasing over 300,000 tons of CO2. Instead of increasing taxes, Colorado’s legislature should explore better alternatives to road financing. The Independence Institute’s Citizens’ Budget project advocates expanding high-occupancy toll (HOT) lanes to all lanes on controlled-access expressways. These roads can become self-financing, and fuel tax revenues can be reallocated to lower-capacity roads. Electronic tolling can reduce traffic congestion by decreasing tolls during off-peak hours. By charging for road use instead of fuel purchased, tolls don’t punish those with less fuel-efficient cars. Colorado should extend its fuel tax refund, so toll payers can recoup fuel taxes paid for miles they drove on toll roads. Fuel taxes are unfair and wasteful. There are better alternatives. Instead of increasing the fuel tax, Colorado’s elected officials should ensure that its current revenue actually funds in-state roads, as required by the Colorado Constitution, rather than continuing to divert it to other purposes, and to other states.

Denying victims a vote S

hame on Harry Reid for killing any prospect of an assault weapons ban. I understand why he did it, but that doesn’t make it right. In his State of the Union address, President Obama spoke with fiery eloquence about the cost of gun violence in shattered lives. “They deserve a vote,” the president said of the victims, challenging Congress to take a stand on reasonable legislation to keep deadly weapons out of the hands of killers. Reid obviously disagrees. The Senate majority leader decided Tuesday to abandon a proposal by Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., that would have banned the sale of some military-style firearms — weapons designed not for sport or self-defense, but for killing enemy soldiers in battle. Reid said he was dropping the measure — without a vote — because it would surely fail. “I’m not going to try to put something on the floor that won’t succeed,” Reid said. He’s wrong. The worst way to respond to the shocking massacre in Newtown, Conn., would be to let political self-interest stand in the way of meaningful action. The parents of those 20 slain children deserve a vote on the assault weapons ban. The families of the 30,000 Americans who will be killed by gunfire this year deserve a vote. Bringing the measure to the floor of both the Senate and the House is the least Congress can do. We all know what’s happening here. Senate Democrats face a

tough battle next year to hold on to their slim majority. Going on record in support of legislation that the gun lobby so vehemently opposes could cost some vulnerable incumbents their seats — and potentially make Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., the majority leader. Reid said he could muster barely 40 votes for Feinstein’s weapons ban. Even if all 53 members of the Democratic caucus supported it, the measure would still fall short of the 60 votes needed to break an anticipated GOP filibuster. And in the event that the measure somehow made it out of the Senate, it would be dead on arrival in the House. So why should Senate

Democrats go out on a limb for something that’s so unlikely ever to become law? The answer isn’t political, it’s moral. The answer is that this is not a moment to do the expedient thing but instead to do the right thing. It is true that prospects are brighter for other proposals on gun violence. The most important is expanding and toughening the current system of background checks for gun buyers. Despite the National Rifle Association’s opposition, sentiment for universal background checks — covering not just dealers but also ostensibly “private” sales at gun shows — seems close to a consensus. Let’s not fool ourselves: The biggest factor in gun violence is the gun. Until we begin to deal with the weapons themselves, we are working at the margins. Despite what the NRA wants us to believe, guns do kill people. Yes, mental health is a serious issue. Yes, the violence in movies and video games is shocking. But these other factors do not begin to explain why there is so much more gun violence in the U.S. than in other industrialized countries. Blame Congress for not imposing reasonable controls on instruments of death that too often turn petty arguments into tragedies — and that allow disturbed individuals to turn their most warped fantasies into reality.

The 50 percent solution

T

he proposition that entitlement curbs are the key to maintaining national solvency is widely accepted, though not by many congressional Democrats. President Obama, however, has endorsed it on various occasions. And he could make it happen. If he wants. I remain skeptical that he does. But national solvency is important enough to test this proposition at least once more. The obstacle is Obama’s current position that entitlement cuts must be “balanced” with new revenue from closing loopholes. Republicans are adamantly opposed. No more revenues, Mr. President. You got your tax hike on Jan. 1. Is there a solution? Yes: tax reform with a twist. The problem begins with definitions. By tax reform, Obama means eliminating deductions, exclusions, credits of various kinds with all the money going to the Treasury. That’s radically new. The historic 1986 Reagan-O’Neill tax reform closed loopholes with no extra money going to the Treasury. The new revenue went directly back to the citizenry in the form of lower tax rates. This is called revenue neutrality. The idea is that tax reform is a way not to fatten the Treasury but to clean the tax code. It means eliminating special-interest favors and behavior-altering

CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER Washington Post Writers Group

deductions that create waste and inefficiency by inducing tax-preferred rather than market-oriented economic activity. And it introduces fairness by removing breaks and payoffs for which only the rich can afford to lobby. As a final bonus, tax reform’s lower rates spur economic growth. A unique win-win-win: efficiency, fairness, growth. Obama’s own Simpson-Bowles deficit-reduction commission offered a variant. First, it identified an astonishing $1.1 trillion per year of these “tax expenditures.” That’s more than $11 trillion in a decade. In one scenario, it knocked them all out and lowered marginal tax rates to just three brackets of 8 percent, 14 percent and 23 percent. But here’s the twist. Using the full $1.1 trillion annually of newly redeemed “loophole” revenue, Simpson-Bowles could have dropped the rates a bit below 23 percent. But instead it left some of that money in the Treasury, an average of almost $100 billion a year, or about $1 trillion over a decade. It was a reasonable compromise, so reasonable that even the Senate’s most fierce spending hawk, commission member Tom Coburn, signed on. Now, Simpson-Bowles is not on the table but it

could be a model. Obama’s “tax reform” would send 100 percent of the revenue to the Treasury. Reagan-O’Neill sent zero percent. Simpson-Bowles fell somewhere in between. So should any grand compromise. Before deciding exactly where to locate that compromise, however, we have to decide which deductions to cut, yielding how much revenue. The bad news is that, given all the lobbying and haggling this would occasion, it could take years to work out. The good news is the formula proposed by Harvard economist Martin Feldstein. Before even picking and choosing which deductions should remain permissible, it simply allows no one to reduce his tax bill by more than 2 percent by using any or all of the deductions and loopholes in the current tax code (except charitable contributions). There should, of course, be separate negotiations over which of the hundreds, thousands, of loopholes/deductions should be tossed out as corrupt or counterproductive rent-seeking. But the 2 percent ceiling means that we don’t have to wait until full tax reform — because the Feldstein formula significantly and immediately reduces the impact of all the loopholes. It’s a deal that manages to simultaneously promote efficiency, fairness, growth, debt reduction and a return to national solvency.

ou learn quickly when you have little kids that they’ll accept any excuse to celebrate. National Fruit Compote Day? Hooray for mushed-up blueberries! Leif Erikson Day? Break out the Viking arts and crafts! Commemorative days are often named for affable people and issues (and fruit salads). The causes that have entire months in their honor, on the other hand, really had to suffer to earn the extra time. Like breast cancer in October and black history in February, for instance. At first blush, you’d think National Women’s History Month, which is March’s cause célèbre, would be an optimal time for a mom like me, with two small daughters, to revel in the advancements towards equality achieved by our foremothers — except a quick scan of the news stories involving women from the past few weeks alone seem to spotlight more of an alarming revelation of our setbacks than a jubilant salute of our progress. It was distressing enough for prochoice supporters when earlier this month the House and Senate in Arkansas overrode the governor’s veto to become the first state in the nation to ban all abortions after just 12 weeks’ gestation in a disturbing effort to erode women’s rights while simultaneously redefine viability from how it was reaffirmed by the U.S. Supreme Court in 1991. Then came approval of an even more absurd measure by the Senate in North Dakota late last week outlawing abortions at six weeks’ gestation — followed by unconscionable rumblings a few days ago from Bismarck that some lawmakers there are considering an attempt to outlaw abortion outright. Unfortunately, the offending lawmakers in Arkansas and North Dakota have made little to no mention of the rights of the women actually carrying the fetuses. But trying to maintain control of decisions about our own bodies isn’t the only struggle facing women at present. In early March, 24/7 Wall St. reported that the median annual earnings of women were just 78.8 percent of their male counterparts in 2011, which is essentially unchanged over a five-year period. On the Top 10 list of the worst paying cities for working women: Colorado Springs, which came in at a shameful No. 6. Women there make just 70.5 percent of men. And that’s not the only dim tidbit from the workplace as it applies to women. Facebook’s chief operating officer, Sheryl Sandberg, has been plastered all over the media landscape lately with the release of her book “Lean In,” which endeavors to teach women how to overcome the past 50 years of being dominated by men in leadership positions in business and government. The solutions in Sandberg’s tome aren’t necessarily novel or overflowing, and the conclusions of most of the ensuing debates are an unfortunate reminder that for more women to acquire loftier stations at work while also maintaining a family balance, they’ll need a nearly unattainable level of privilege and clout at the outset — and use it à la Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer, who has a nursery adjacent to her office. Or, they simply need to accept that the only place they’re apt to be in a position of real authority is at home, so they should just stay there like a “retro housewife,” as is written in this week’s New York magazine. There’s no question women need more than a day to reflect on where we’ve been and where we are, although at this point it actually seems like even a month won’t suffice. Of course, at this stage in their lives, my daughters are probably happier celebrating World Tapir Day (long live forest animals!), especially if there’s cake involved. My hope, though, is that by the time my girls are old enough to read Sandberg’s book, hold a job and make their own doctor’s appointments, in the Marches to come, they might have a legitimate reason to rejoice about the improvement of causes a little closer to our home and gender.

SPORTS NCAA Tournament Road to Atlanta

CSU ramblin’ on; No. 1 L’ville next Green’s 26 points lead Rams to first NCAA tourney win since 1989 COLORADO STATE 84, MISSOURI 72 By Christopher Dempsey The Denver Post

lexington, ky.» This is a season of firsts, after all, for Colorado State men’s basketball. So why not add another one? Colorado State won an NCAA Tournament game for the first time in 24 years, handing Missouri an 84-72 loss Thursday night at Rupp Arena in a sometime easy-looking matchup between similar teams. But if this one was easy — on the scoreboard, anyway — just wait until Saturday. The Rams moved on to the third round, facing the NCAA Tournament’s overall top seed, Louisville, at 3:15 p.m. Louisville pounded 16thseeded North Carolina A&T 79-48. The last time CSU tasted victory in the NCAA Tournament was 1989, when it defeated Florida 68-46. That day, Joel Tribelhorn knocked down 7of-12 shots to score 20 points in the win. Thursday night, it was a gamehigh 26 points from Dorian Green that pushed CSU past an athletic yet underachieving Missouri squad. It was also the first NCAA Tournament win for CSU coach Larry Eustachy since 2000, when he took Iowa State to the Elite Eight. He had lost his last two Round of 64 NCAA Tournament games. “We took three days off then had two good practices. We were ready to win this game,” Eustachy said. “I told my wife we’re not going to go home (Friday) morning. We’re going to win this game and fire a shot at Louisville.” As for the seniors — Green, Wes Eikmeier, Greg Smith, Pierce Hornung and Colton Iverson — they continue to author the extension of the most wins in a single season in school history. The quintet combined to score 58 of the RAMS » 7B

NUGGETS 101, 76ERS 100 By Benjamin Hochman The Denver Post

How? How?? It was unreal, surreal. This thing was over — the 76ers up eight points with less than two minutes left — but the Nuggets, resuscitated, climbed back into the game and won 101-100 on Thursday night at the Pepsi Center. Corey Brewer made three free throws with 2.1 seconds left to give Denver the lead for good, cemented by an Anthony Randolph block on Damien Wilkins at the buzzer. Brewer scored — poured? — a careerhigh 29 points, including a 3-pointer with 9.2 seconds left. “It was crazy. To be honest, I didn’t think we had any chance of wining,” Brewer said. “Even when (Evan Turner) missed those two free throws, it gave us life.” After Turner missed both, Denver was able to get Brewer open for the 3-ball foul. “We ran it for Andre (Miller) to come off, and then (Danilo) Gallinari, to keep it,” Brewer said, “and then I was going to come for the handoff, and I was able to get it — and I saw the defender coming, so I tried to get it off quick.” That makes 14 consecutive wins for the fellows in yellow, a team NBA franchise record, while also tying the longest streak in coach George Karl’s career, a streak that occurred in 1996, when his SuperSonics ultimately went to the NBA Finals. Denver is an incredible 31-3 at home and on a 16-game home winning streak. NUGGETS » 4B

ey, John Elway. Breaking up is indeed hard to do. But get a grip, man. Kiss defensive end Elvis Dumervil goodbye. Here’s a better idea: Call legendary linebacker Brian Urlacher. Sure, at age 34, Urlacher has more mileage than a beat-up car on the L-train. Even in Chicago, he is lovingly described as a meathead. By any measure, Urlacher ain’t the Hall of Fame middle linebacker he used to be. But this Denver team could use a little more mean. Is Nate Irving or Stewart Bradley really a better option in the heart of the Broncos defense? And how much is Urlacher going to cost at this point? Maybe $2 million? Heck, Dumervil can send more money to the dead zone with one push of a button on his fax machine. KISZLA » 12B

OFF & RUNNING Sports Weekend By John Henderson, The Denver Post

Morning Report

Loss to Maryland ends DU’s season

Klinsmann keeps U.S. rolling with changes commerce city » urgen Klinsmann didn’t seem to have any blood pouring out of open wounds Thursday. Listening to him the day before his 0-1 United States soccer team hosts 0-0-1 Costa Rica in a World Cup qualifier, it sounded as if he was fully recovered from getting stabbed multiple times in the back. A recent story in The Sporting News quoted unnamed players in the national team pool questioning the second-year coach’s leadership. It apparently had no effect. At 8 o’clock Friday, a packed Dick’s Sporting Goods Park and an ESPN audience will see if it had any effect on an injury-plagued, inexperienced U.S. team. Among the complaints players had, as referenced in The Sporting News story, was that Klinsmann favored GermanAmerican players whom Klinsmann invited. There were also complaints about the lineup he used in the 2-1 loss at Honduras on Feb. 6 and that he was spending more time talking about fitness than tactics. “I always said we are a team in transi-

tion,” Klinsmann said. “I always said we’re between cycles. It’s normal that we have players outside their comfort zone. We have to use different methods to make it better. If we do exactly the same way it was done before, we’re not improving. It’s our job to get these guys to another level. The way we do it is by using different methods.” Clint Dempsey, whom Klinsmann named captain to replace Carlos Bocanegra, in another controversial roster omission, did not address the team about the story. But he did defend his coach. “It’s important to keep moving forward as a country and be the best we can be and try to do something special,” Dempsey said. “So you have to think outside the box. Try new methods. You have to try new players.” New players? Due to injuries and Bocanegra’s idleness in Spain’s second

division, the six defenders on the U.S. roster have only 12 caps between them in World Cup qualifiers. Tony Beltran, Matt Besler and Justin Morrow will make their World Cup debuts. They’ll go against a Costa Rica team that is on a nine-game unbeaten streak and boasts Alvaro Saborio, whose 53 goals for Real Salt Lake is a club record and whose seven goals in two stages of World Cup qualifying lead the entire hemisphere. Coach Jorge Luis Pinto, in his second stint as national coach, caused a stir when he called Saborio “doubtful” for the game after he hurt his knee in Wednesday’s practice but Saborio said Thursday, “I am 110 percent.” Los Ticos have gone 3-0-2 against the U.S. in its last five games, but they’ve never played the U.S. in 21 degrees with possible showers, which is Friday’s forecast. However, Saborio plays in Salt Lake City and eight others play in Northern Europe, including six in Scandinavia.

Put your dukes up: State Golden Gloves underway

A boxer rests between rounds during the 2011 Colorado Golden Gloves tournament. Denver Post file

The history of Colorado Golden Gloves dates to 1944, when boxing was mainstream and even the NBA didn’t exist. When more than 100 boxers fight toward the final rounds of the 68th Colorado Golden Gloves tournament this weekend — at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Denver through Saturday near Interstate 70 and Chambers Road — they will have that history on their backs. In the open division, 16-year-old Andrew Strode, who fights out of the Denver Police Brotherhood gym, likely will be among the favorites. He graduated to Golden Gloves after winning a National Silver Gloves title last year. He was set to battle Gustavo Juarez-Mejia of A1 Boxing late Thursday in the opening rounds. Also on Saturday, Colorado Golden Gloves will induct four into its Hall of Fame, including longtime official Jeanne DePriest and boxer Joey Romero. Romero’s posthumous induction comes a year after former boxer and activist Rudolfo “Corky” Gonzales was inducted.

college park, md.» The University of Denver’s ability to exploit its size differential against Maryland nearly led to another postseason victory. But the Terrapins’ decision to match DU with a small lineup ultimately led to the end of the Pioneers’ season. Maryland erased a nine-point deficit in the second half Thursday night, securing a 62-52 victory at the Comcast Center in the second round of the National Invitation Tournament. “It’s been good for the program, especially from not being able to win an NIT game to winning one and making it a close one out here on the road after a day of travel,” said DU junior forward Chris Udofia, who scored 24 points. “We’re keeping our heads up.” The Pioneers (22-10) led 48-39 with 9:14 left after Brett Olson’s 3-pointer. But 20 seconds later, officials called a flagrant foul on DU’s Royce O’Neale and Maryland immediately switched to a five-guard set for the first time all season to account for both foul trouble and an inability to defend Udofia with its traditional post players. Udofia soon picked up his fourth foul and Maryland (2412) uncorked a 23-4 run to close out the Pioneers. Dez Wells scored 19 points for the Terrapins, who scored the game’s final nine points and held DU scoreless over the last 3:07. Patrick Stevens, Special to The Post

orlando, fla.» Justin Rose started out as just another guy in Tiger Woods’ group Thursday at Bay Hill. He wound up in the lead. Rose put on a clinic with the putter and ran off four straight birdies late in his round for a 7under-par 65, giving him a twoshot lead after the first round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational. Woods had two sloppy bogeys from greenside bunkers and didn’t hit it as well as he did when he won Doral two weeks ago. But he made enough key par saves and manhandled the par 5s to scratch out a 69, a reasonable start as he tries to win Bay Hill for the eighth time and return to No. 1 in the world. It was only the sixth time in 31 rounds at Bay Hill that Rose broke 70.

“If you had said I would shoot a 65 on the range this morning, I would have probably said, ‘How many holes have I played?’ And that didn’t change much,” Rose said. “The first five, six holes out there were a grind.” John Huh had a chance to catch him, but needing a birdie on the final hole, he found a fairway bunker on No. 9 and took bogey for a 67. John Rollins and Brad Fritsch were at 68. Woods was tied for the lead briefly after his eagle on the 16th, only to make bogey on the 17th and another bogey on the 18th when he hit a good pitch from short of the green to 6 feet and missed the putt. Woods played the par 5s in 5under, bringing his career total at Bay Hill to 118-under par. The Associated Press

He returned to the war — the only double amputee to serve on active military duty — and then became a tireless pioneer in disabled skiing. Benedick, who died in Denver on Tuesday at age 70, was introduced to skiing while he was at Fitzsimons Army Medical Center recovering from his war wounds. After the war, skiing became his life. He competed twice in the Paralympics, claiming a silver medal in 1984. After retiring as a

McCartney’s wife passes away

Ramirez scheduled for surgery

Metro State’s Morse honored

Lyndi McCartney, the wife of former University of Colorado football coach Bill McCartney, died Thursday at age 70. She had a 10year battle with emphysema. “We have four children and 10 grandchildren, and we all loved her very much,” Bill McCartney said in a CU-issued news release. The couple celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary Dec. 29. The eldest McCartney son, Mike, announced his mother’s passing on his Facebook page: “RIP Mom. I am who I am because of you. Love you.” Services are pending.

tucson» Los Angeles Dodgers shortstop Hanley Ramirez is scheduled to undergo surgery Friday on his right thumb and is expected to be sidelined eight weeks. An MRI indicated Ramirez has a torn ligament in his thumb, the team said Thursday. Ramirez was injured Tuesday night while playing for the Dominican Republic in its victory over Puerto Rico in the World Baseball Classic championship game in San Francisco. Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti said Ramirez could start rehab in about three weeks. Dee Gordon and Luis Cruz appear to be the leading candidates to be the team’s opening-day shortstop.

Metro State men’s basketball player Jonathan Morse was named a Daktronics second-team All-American on Thursday. Morse, a senior post player, was the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference player of the year this season. The Fairview High School graduate is averaging 14.7 points and 8.6 rebounds, while totaling 45 blocked shots and 39 steals in 32 games. He has led Metro State to its second consecutive trip to the NCAA Division II Elite Eight in Louisville, Ky., where the Roadrunners (30-2) will play Franklin Pierce (N.H.) next Thursday at 10 a.m. It’s the second year in a row Metro State has had an All-America player. Reggie Evans was honored last season. Denver Post wire services

RUST. That’s what it said on the locker room’s dry erase board, in letters as big as the Nuggets’ win. It was Tuesday in Oklahoma City, where Denver would win an eyepopping, back-to-back finale against the mighty Thunder. Why do the Nuggets win games they should lose? I can give you a lot of fancy stats about fast-break scoring and improvements in all facets of defense, but the incalculable intangible is that they’re among the league leaders in trust. “We talk a lot about the word trust,” Nuggets coach George Karl said, “trusting each other, trusting the concepts, trusting the intensity. The word trust has been in our game plans a lot. And I have to trust them,

they’ve earned that trust.” Trust is most important on the defensive end. And for however fun it was watching Allen Iverson and Melo pour in 25-plus a night, there was little trust on defense. Heck, there was little defense. Iverson was so insignificant on defense that occasionally he literally wasn’t even looking at the play (as such, many around the Pepsi Center believe that Denver somehow winning 50 games in 200708 was one of the greatest accomplishments in franchise history). Now, Denver has the opposite of A.I. in, well, A.I. “I think there’s a confidence that comes with having an Andre (Iguodala) on your defensive end of the court,” Karl said. “And when you can take a major opposing player and kind of control him with one individual, then you don’t need a lot of concepts, you don’t need a lot of tricks

and cover-ups and rotations. And for a young team, that’s good, because if we had to gimmick up the game, I don’t know if our young players have done that enough to feel comfortable with it. “There are a lot of concepts that your partner is supporting you in. you must go and trust that he’s going to be ready for you. And you also have to trust that the weakside defense will support you, so your defensive assignments probably involve more trust.” On the offensive end, Karl said the Nuggets are as good as any team at sharing the ball with the open player, regardless of the name on that player’s back. That was the curse of the Iverson-Melo Nuggets. It’s Spursesque. No, the Nuggets are not as good as the Spurs. But they trust each other like they do, and that could be something come mid-April.

Special guests. At Thursday’s Nuggets-76ers game, in attendance were 300 children facing cancer and chronic and life-threatening illnesses, hosted by Northwestern MutualDenver, in partnership with the Starlight Children’s Foundation. The children, along with their families, watched the teams warm up and then hung out in the fan tunnel at halftime. The Starlight Children’s Foundation is dedicated to improving the quality of life for children with chronic and life-threatening illnesses and life-altering injuries, and it does so by providing entertainment, education and family activities. Pretty cool, indeed. Benjamin Hochman: 303-954-1294, bhochman @denverpost.com or twitter.com/nuggetsnews

Denver’s Corey Brewer draws a foul from Philadelphia’s Damien Wilkins on a 3-point shot late in Thursday night’s game at the Pepsi Center. Brewer calmly made three free throws, giving the Nuggets a 101-100 victory that stretched their winning streak to 14 games. Karl Gehring, The Denver Post

NUGGETS «FROM 1B “We overcame lazy, mental preparation, but in the same sense, to play as poorly as we did and win is a positive,” Karl said. “It definitely goes in the category of a lucky win. … You can’t play well all the time, and when you don’t play well, you figure out how to come up with a win.” The Nuggets had lost only three times at home. The 76ers, who had lost 14 straight on the road, stink. In March Madness terms, this was like a 14-3 matchup. But for most of the night, it was madness. The Nuggets fell apart — and were picked apart by Sixers guard Jrue Holiday, who dished out a career-high 15 assists. Clearly, the Nuggets didn’t have the juice from the ever-so-inspired game at Oklahoma City two nights prior. But the magic happened late, similarly to the Miami Heat the night before in staving off a loss at Cleveland. The Nuggets were without their motor, starting point guard Ty Lawson, who missed the game with a heel injury. Andre Miller started in place of Lawson, who is day to day heading into Saturday’s game against Sacramento.

Miller wasn’t Tuesday Miller. He made some shots like he did at Oklahoma City, and his stat line was good-looking — 21 points and eight assists — but it was clear that Denver’s offense didn’t have the same punch as it has with Lawson. And for the night, Miller was minus-12, a glaring number in the plusminus stat that Karl cherishes so. “When you take guys out, sometimes the puzzle doesn’t fit,” Karl said of the injuries. Denver was also without Wilson Chandler — “Ill Wil” has a separated shoulder and said he likely will miss the next three or four games, counting Thursday’s game. After the Sacramento game, Denver plays at New Orleans on Monday and at San Antonio on Wednesday, a huge litmus-test game for the Nuggets. But how about Brewer? He was firing all game Thursday, making 10-of-18 shots and contributing five steals too. In the second quarter, he sprinted back during a 76ers twoman fast break, threw up two hands and intercepted a zipped pass. At the time, it was his biggest play. Then came the 3. Then came the three free throws. “It’s a pretty big highlight,” Brewer said of the frantic finish, “Probably my best highlight since I was in the NBA.”

Nuggets Recap What you might have missed The loose Denver defense allowed the 76ers’ Spencer Hawes to break loose. Thursday, the big guy finished with 17 points, 12 rebounds and four blocks. In the Halloween matchup against the Nuggets, Hawes was also a hoss, finishing with 16, 12 and five. … Danilo Gallinari was 3-for-10 after a 4-for-17 night at Oklahoma City. … Evan Fournier scored four points in six minutes, while helping out at point guard for Denver.

Final thought Craziest. Win. Ever.

Up next Sacramento, Saturday at 7 p.m. Benjamin Hochman, The Denver Post

Bulls’ Rose remains unsure on return The Associated Press

deerfield, ill.» Chicago Bulls superstar Derrick Rose still isn’t sure when he’ll come back from his knee injury. The former MVP point guard sounded like a player who just might miss the entire season, though he said he hasn’t experienced any setbacks in his recovery. He said Thursday that he’s still experiencing some sore-

ness in his surgically repaired left knee and hasn’t set a target date for his return. “It could be tomorrow and I feel like I can play the next game,” Rose said before Thursday night’s game against the Portland Trail Blazers. “Nobody knows but God.” Rose hasn’t played since he tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee during last year’s playoff opener.

It’s no stretch to say veteran winger Chuck Kobasew is making the most of his low-profile role with the Avalanche this season. “When you’re in the NHL, you want to do anything to stay in the NHL,” he says. Karl Gehring, The Denver Post

Avs’ Kobasew thriving as fourth-line forward By Adrian Dater The Denver Post

If it had happened earlier in his NHL career, he would have agonized over it, probably wouldn’t have slept much, probably would have let it affect every aspect of his life. But when Chuck Kobasew was given a fourth-line role with the Avalanche this season, the veteran winger’s first thought was: No problem, how do I reinvent myself? Always a fast skater, he thought he could use his speed to get in on the forecheck and create turnovers. Or get over the red line faster than others to dump the puck in and get a line change. Doing that consistently as a fourth-line player creates value on a team. The result: Kobasew is having one of the better seasons of his recent career, though the scoring numbers wouldn’t seem to say that. In 27 games, he has four goals and four assists. Big deal. But as a depth winger, that’s not bad. And there are other numbers that prove what kind of season he’s having, such as his plus-7 rating, which is tied for the

best among the Avs with John Mitchell. His shooting percentage (12.1) ranks fifth on the team. He has 10 takeaways, but only two giveaways. About the only stat that doesn’t look good for Kobasew is faceoffs (13 wins, 30 losses, 30.2 percent, which is a small sample size). Kobasew, who turns 31 next month, is a three-time 20-goal scorer in the NHL — twice with Boston, once with Calgary. He came within one victory of a Stanley Cup championship ring in 2004 with the Flames, playing a regular role for coach Darryl Sutter. With the Avs, he mostly has played on the third and fourth lines and even has been an occasional healthy scratch. “When I was younger, I would have read into that too much,” said Kobasew, a native of Vancouver, British Columbia. “But I’ve been around long enough now where you just want to be in the lineup and do what you can to help the team win. When you get your number called to be out there, you give it everything you can.” Kobasew would like to score more goals — who wouldn’t? He believes he

still can, and might get more of an opportunity to do it. In Wednesday’s victory over Dallas when he scored the game-winner, Kobasew played with linemates who ranged from Mark Olver and Patrick Bordeleau to captain Gabe Landeskog and Ryan O’Reilly. Kobasew’s performance wasn’t as good last season. He scored seven goals and had 14 points in 58 games, with a minus-10 rating. Though he doesn’t use it as an excuse, he was dealing with the death of his mother, who died of breast cancer. Now in the final year of a contract paying $1.25 million, Kobasew can be an unrestricted free agent July 1. He said he has more good hockey ahead of him, in whatever role it may be. “I know I can score goals and have confidence in myself. I’ve done it before,” he said. “But when you’re in the NHL, you want to do anything to stay in the NHL. It’s the best league in the world.” Adrian Dater: 303-954-1360, adater@denverpost.com or twitter.com/adater

Stoykewych picks good time for second goal COLO. COLLEGE 4, NORTH DAKOTA 3, OT By Jess Myers The Associated Press

st. paul, minn.» Peter Stoykewych scored just his second goal of the season in overtime, lifting Colorado College to a

4-3 win over North Dakota in the quarterfinals of the WCHA Final Five. The Tigers trailed 2-1 after 20 minutes and were outshot throughout the game, but got a second-period, short-handed goal by Alexander Krushelnyski for a 2-2 tie, then took the lead in the third when Hunter Fejes scored his second goal in as many games.

Drake Caggiula had two goals and Danny Kristo also scored for North Dakota, which had won three consecutive Final Five titles. Clarke Saunders had 19 saves for North Dakota. Joe Howe had 29 saves for Colorado College, which will face Minnesota in the tournament’s semifinals Friday.

in all of spring training. Of course, spring statistics must be taken with a grain of salt, but shortstop Troy Tulowitzki is confident the Rockies have made progress. More than anything, Tulowitzki credits the pitchers. “A lot of it is because our pitchers have had a good tempo, thrown strikes and haven’t walked a lot of guys,” Tulowitzki said. “I think the emphasis on groundballs will be good too. That will keep us more in tune. “I think last year was tough because we were watching walks or watching balls hit into the gap. You get tired standing out there, so your first reaction just isn’t as sharp. I think that was a lot of our problem last year.”

for,” he said. “Spring training, for me, is about getting ready for the season. I think I’ve done that. I feel like I need about a week more.” Helton entered Thursday night’s game against the San Francisco Giants with just 14 at-bats and a .214 average. He said he wants to ramp it up a little bit in the next week. “I said I needed 22 at-bats this spring, but I’ll go ahead and admit that I was wrong. I may need 23,” Helton said jokingly. Helton has had no issues with his surgically repaired right hip, but his left knee, which he had arthroscopic surgery on in November, barks from time to time. “The knee has given me a little bit of a problem,” he said. “When I walked out of surgery I didn’t feel a thing. But at some point this spring I started feeling it. “So it hurts, now and then, but I know that will go away again.”

Rockies Briefs ROCKIES BOASTING IMPROVED DEFENSE scottsdale, ariz.» There have been film sessions almost every day. Players such as third baseman Chris Nelson field extra groundballs before stepping into the batting cage. New manager Walt Weiss has preached the importance of defense since the second week of February. It’s all part of the Rockies’ effort to rebound from the woes of last season, when they committed 122 errors and finished with a fielding percentage of .980, both marks worst in the big leagues. “I do think it’s paying off, and Walt has certainly emphasized it,” Nelson said. “I can’t think of too many errors we’ve made.” His perception is correct. Going into play Thursday night, Colorado had committed just seven errors in Cactus League play and its .991 fielding percentage was the best

its first NCAA Tournament win by beating No. 3 New Mexico 68-62, sending the Mountain West to 1-3 on the week. I’ll take that. Louisville’s Russ Smith, right, set a school NCAA Tournament record with a career-high eight steals. Not bad considering the Cardinals have played in 104 NCAA Tournament games. Louisville finished with a season-high 20 steals. Pac-12’s 12s. After some questioned Oregon’s seed, the No. 12 Ducks knocked off No. 5 Oklahoma State.

Burke, the Big Ten Conference player of the year, averaged 19.2 points this season but scored only six points Thursday. He was held to single-digit scoring for the first time this season. Close call. Gonzaga has the No. 1 seed in the West but didn’t play like a top seed, only beating No. 16 Southern 64-58. The score was 56-56 with 3:45 left in the game. Bucking the trend.

Tar Heels get huge help from smaller lineup

Harvard ousts New Mexico

By Doug Tucker The Associated Press

No. 13 HARVARD 68, No. 3 N. MEXICO 62

kansas city, mo.» Villanova fans had no idea when Miami beat North Carolina 68-59 in January that something bad had just happened to them. It was then that a discouraged Roy Williams decided to stray from his long-established coaching philosophy and install a smaller lineup. As a result, Carolina (2410) has turned around its season and developed some top-flight 3-point shooters. That could be a problem when Villanova (20-13) meets North Carolina on Friday in the NCAA Tournament, because perimeter defense has been a season-long bugaboo for the Wildcats. “In practice earlier (Thursday) we were working on it,” Villanova guard Ryan Arcidiacono said. “That’s what we’ve been trying to do these past couple of days, just trying to get better at defending the 3-point line.” Carolina has made 255 3-pointers — almost eight per game — and accelerated the pace as the season wore on. Complicating things for anyone trying to guard the perimeter against the Tar Heels is the height of some of their top shooters, Reggie Bullock (6-foot-7) and P.J. Hairston (6-5). Hairston, a part-time starter, is 81-of-208 behind the arc and Bullock is 84-of-192 (a solid 43.8 percent). Williams admits it was tough making the decision to go in a different direction. “It’s been interesting and it’s also been scary, because it’s not something I’ve been comfortable with,” Williams said. “Most coaches develop a philosophy, a style that they stick with most of the time. If you’ve done it for 25 years as a head coach, you’re probably not going to change very much.”

Crimson earns first NCAA Tournament win by knocking off No. 3 seed By Eddie Pells The Associated Press

salt lake city» Give those Harvard kids an A-plus in another subject: Bracketbusting 101. Wesley Saunders scored 18 points and Laurent Rivard made five 3pointers to help the 14th-seeded Crimson pull the biggest upset in Thursday’s flurry of NCAA Tournament games, a 68-62 win over No. 3 New Mexico. The Ivy League advanced for the first time since a very good Cornell team made the regional semifinals in 2010. The Mountain West Con-

ference, judged one of the top two leagues in college basketball all season, fell to 1-3 so far this week. While it may have been upset — Harvard’s first-ever win in three measly trips to the tournament — it didn’t look anything like a fluke. The Crimson (20-9) put the clamps on New Mexico’s Tony Snell, holding him to nine points on 4-for-12 shooting after he dominated in the MWC Tournament. They banged inside with Lobos big men Cameron Bairstow and Alex Kirk, whose 22 points provided New Mexico’s only consistent offense. Mostly, they showed none of the jitters that marked their trip to the tournament last year — a 79-70 loss to Vanderbilt in Harvard’s first NCAA appearance since 1946.

Some were ecstatic. “YYYYYEEEEESSSSSSSSS!!! HARVARD winssss!!! hahahahhah i told you” tweeted Jeremy Lin, Harvard’s most famous basketball alumnus. Rivard went 6-of-7 from 3-point range in that one — played on New Mexico’s home court in The Pit — and was clearly pumped for an encore. He was 5-of-9 this time, with three of them coming in the first half, while Harvard was holding a small lead and, more important, answering every surge the Lobos (29-6) threw at them. Rivard finished with 17 points. Christian Webster was more of a role player last year, but jumped to the fore in 2013; he finished with 11 points and was gesturing after each

of his three made 3s, even pointing to his forehead after making one from the corner in the first half. Yep, these smart kids really can play. Tommy Amaker outcoached his contemporary, Steve Alford, exacting revenge of sorts from when Alford’s Indiana team beat Amaker and Duke back in the 1987 regional semifinals. Based on their regular-season and conference tournament wins, the Lobos were a popular pick to head to the Final Four this season. The school even gave Alford a new, 10-year contract Wednesday that called for a $125,000 bonus for a Final Four trip. They’ll save the money but feel the pain.

Footnotes. The Kansas Jayhawks, the top seed in the South Regional, were rewarded for another terrific season by getting to open the NCAA Tournament about a 30minute drive from their Lawrence campus. They play Western Kentucky on Friday in Kansas City, Mo. KU is 6-0 at Kansas City’s downtown arena this season, beating Washington State, Saint Louis and Oregon State before winning three games in the Big 12 Tournament. ... Already with the ACC regular-season and tournament titles, along with a school-record 27 wins, the

No. 2-seeded Miami Hurricanes play their first NCAA Tournament game in five years. ... Third-seeded Florida plays Southland Conference Tournament champion Northwestern State, the nation’s top scoring team (averaging 81 points per game). The fast-paced Demons also were a No. 14 seed in their last NCAA Tournament appearance seven years ago — and upset Iowa. ... Eighth-seeded N.C. State, which plays ninth-seeded Temple, is commemorating the 30th anniversary of its Jim Valvano-led national title.

NCAA Tournament Briefs KRUGER, FISHER ARE FRIENDS AND FOES philadelphia» Steve Fisher and Lon Kruger forged a friendship with roots in the Big Ten, tightened in the Mountain West and stretched all the way to opposite benches in the NCAA Tournament. It’s a matchup they would have loved to miss. One friend is going to lose and the other will take it almost as hard as if he lost himself. Kruger will shunt personal feel-

ings for 40 minutes when he coaches 10th-seed Oklahoma (20-11) against Fisher and No. 7 seed San Diego State (22-10) on Friday. Once the game tips off, Kruger will make a dash of history as the first coach to lead five schools to the NCAA Tournament. He also guided Kansas State, Florida, Illinois and UNLV to the tournament during his career. His ol’ pal Fisher is a tournamenttested lifer too. Fisher won a national championship with Michigan in 1989 and guided the Fab Five-led Wolverines to consecutive national runner-up finishes in 1992 and 1993.

LEXINGTON JOURNAL

Bejarano’s blast from his past: Arizona fans

By Christopher Dempsey The Denver Post

lexington, k.y.» his week is a much quieter, more laid-back experience for Colorado State guard Daniel Bejarano. And he prefers it that way. Always has, actually. The softspoken sophomore would rather his game do all the talking. But last week at the Mountain West Tournament in Las Vegas, he was forced to run head-on into his recent past. Bejarano is a transfer from Arizona. Last week, he ran into multitudes of Wildcats fans in Vegas to attend the Pac-12 Tournament while CSU played in the Mountain West Tournament. It was a “Twilight Zone” type of experience. “It was a little weird,” Bejarano said. “There were some people who were talking to me who were rooting against me and who were rooting for me. And just walking through the hotel, or walking wherever.” CSU’s hotel was the Mirage. The Pac-12 Tournament was played a few blocks down the Strip at the MGM Grand. “It was all right,” said Bejarano, who said he shrugged off any unkind words. “Either way, I appreciate it. That’s over with and I just move on.” Moving on required Bejarano to focus on CSU’s game against Missouri and on keeping himself and his left knee, which he sprained late in the season, in as good condition as possible. Bejarano insisted he was fine heading into Thursday night’s game. “My body can take more than what I think,” he said.

RAMS «FROM 1B team’s 84 points and 26 of the team’s 36 rebounds to get win No. 26. The team’s fourth-year seniors — Green, Eikmeier, Smith, Hornung — have moved into a tie for the most wins in a four-year period, at 81. “This is the ultimate stage and I think as a team it’s a start for what we want to accomplish,” Hornung said, “but we’re not satisfied. We still feel like we have a lot to go out there and prove.” Colorado State opened the game on fire, hitting its first four shots and scoring on five of its first six possessions. And the Rams never really cooled off. Green, who grew up in Lawrence, Kan., and despised Missouri as much as any Kansan, torched the Tigers in the first half from the 3-point line and everywhere else. He had 17 first-half points, setting the tone for a Rams team that went about its business with precision. Green’s effectiveness allowed CSU to

survive foul trouble from Iverson, who sat the majority of the first half with two fouls. He eventually fouled out, but not before a game-high 13 rebounds. His absence allowed Missouri behemoth, Alex Oriakhi, to overpower the Rams interior, but CSU’s defense mostly was stout. Meanwhile, Missouri star guard Phil Pressey struggled to get going. CSU held him to 0-for-5 before he hit his first shot with 5:01 left in the first half. The Rams were decisive winners on the boards 17-7, and had a nine-point lead at halftime. Things tightened up in the second half. CSU started off cold, missing its first five shots. Meanwhile, Missouri made a push and got itself back to within striking distance. But a 10-2 CSU run pushed a 49-45 lead into a 59-47 advantage. And the Rams weren’t done. The lead jumped to 17 as CSU put an aggressive style of basketball on the court, which led to a steady march to the free-throw line. The Rams finished 27-of-33 from the line and outrebounded the Tigers 36-18. “It’s tough to lose a game when you outboard a team like that,” Eikmeier said.

A look at the Cardinals LOUISVILLE (30-5, 14-4 Big East) Location: Louisville, Ky. Conference: The Cardinals were in a three-way tie atop the final Big East standings with Georgetown and Marquette for a share of the regular-season title, then won three in a row at the conference tournament to claim the league tournament crown with a convincing 78-61 victory over Syracuse in the title game. Coach: Rick Pitino is finishing his 12th season at Louisville, and is 305-111 overall. In 28 seasons as a head coach, Pitino is 659-239 with 18 NCAA Tournament appearances. Won a national championship in 1996 with Kentucky. Starting lineup: Forward — Wyane Blackshear, 6-foot-5, So. (averaging 8.0 points, 3.2 rebounds); Chane Behanan, 6-6, So. (9.9, 6.6). Center — Gorgui Dieng, 6-11, Jr. (10.0, 9.9). Guards — Peyton Siva, 6-0, Sr. (10.0, 2.3); Russ Smith, 6-1, Jr. (18.1, 3.6). Key reserves: Luke Hancock, G/F, 6-6, Jr.

Midwest Regional OREGON ELIMINATES COWBOYS WITH EASE san jose, calif.» Damyean Dotson scored 17 points and Arsalan Kazemi added 11 points and 17 rebounds to help 12th-seeded Oregon extend a run that began in the Pac-12 Tournament by beating Oklahoma State 68-55 in the NCAA Tournament on Thursday. Dominic Artis scored 13 points and helped frustrate Oklahoma State star freshman Marcus Smart on the defensive end to give the Ducks (27-8) their first NCAA Tournament win in six years. Smart came into the game with the hype of a top NBA prospect but was held to 14 points on 5-for-13 shooting for the Cowboys (24-9).

The selection committee raised some eyebrows when Oregon was given a No. 12 seed despite tying for second place in the Pac-12 in the regular season, winning the conference tournament and going 21-4 with Artis in the lineup.

auburn hills, mich.» Matthew Dellavedova’s 3-pointer from the right wing sailed long as time expired, allowing sixth-seeded Memphis to advance. The Tigers (31-4) led by 15 in the first half, but nearly gave the game away in the final seconds. With Saint Mary’s (28-7) down five, Eividas Petrulis banked in a 3-pointer with 3.1 seconds to play. Memphis then lost the ball when Jordan Giusti deflected

The Cardinals finished with a season-high 20 steals as they forced the Aggies (20-17) into 27 turnovers. It was the 11th straight win for Louisville (30-5). Coach Rick Pitino and the Big East champions quickly ended a postsea-

son run for the Aggies, who finally earned their first NCAA Tournament win Tuesday. Bruce Beckford led North Carolina A&T with 12 points.

The Crusaders (26-8) were no match for Michigan State in their first NCAA Tournament game in nine years, just as they weren’t as a firstround loser in 2000 to the eventual champion Spartans.

Bejarano, who won the Mountain West’s sixth man of the year award, will have a significantly increased role with the Rams next season. He said offseason surgery won’t be necessary. “I got the MRI and everything is fine. Some scar tissue is in there, in the front of my knee,” said Bejarano, who was averaging 22.1 minutes, 6.1 points and 5.5 rebounds entering Thursday’s game against Missouri.

Marquette escapes. Tickets have been relatively easy to acquire in this subregional at Rupp Arena, but fans on hand for Thursday’s afternoon matchup between third-seeded Marquette and 14th-seeded Davidson were treated to a great game. Marquette used an 8-2 run in the last 41 seconds to steal a 59-58 victory. Marquette (24-8) couldn’t hit a 3pointer for most of the game (1-for-12 to start) and then couldn’t miss (3for-3 in the last 1:03). Davidson, which finished 26-8, would have been the first No. 14 seed in the NCAA Tournament to win since Ohio beat Georgetown in 2010. “We felt comfortable with our lead,” said Davidson forward Jake Cohen. “We knew they were going to try and get some 3s up, and for the most part we did a good job defending them.” “March Madness,” Marquette coach Buzz Williams said. “We’re thankful to still be standing.” Christopher Dempsey: 303-954-1279, cdempsey@ denverpost.com or twitter.com/dempseypost

Scouting report: The Cardinals play a harassing full-court trap defense that forces turnovers in bunches. Louisville uses its defense to generate offense and has a veteran leader at the point, Siva, to make it all work. They have won 11 games in a row; last loss Feb. 9 — a fiveovertime affair at Notre Dame. Key stats: The Cardinals force an average of 18.7 turnovers (school-record 635 turnovers) and have collected doubledigit steals in 26 games. They have a schoolrecord 365 steals this season. ... Dieng led the Big East in rebounding (17th in the nation), and Smith has scored in doublefigures in 31 games this season. ... This is Louisville’s seventh 30-win season, with four coming in the past eight seasons. Tournament history: 39th appearance, 64-40 record. The Cardinals have been to the Final Four nine times with two titles (1980 and 1986). Denver Post staff reports

CU, practicing Thursday at the Erwin Center in Austin, Texas, jumps into NCAA Tournament action Friday against Illinois. CU was 1-1 in the tournament last season. Eric Gay, The Associated Press

Roberson assigned to Illini star Pac-12 defensive player of year given tough test By Tom Kensler The Denver Post

austin, texas» Go ahead and call Andre Roberson vs. Brandon Paul one of the marquee individual matchups in the early rounds of the NCAA Tournament. That would not be an exaggeration. Feeling no need to keep it secret, Colorado coach Tad Boyle acknowledged that Roberson, a 6-foot-7 junior forward, will check Illinois’ Paul, a 6-4 senior guard, in Friday’s East Regional opener at the Erwin Center. That’s the newly named Pac-12 defensive player of the year against Paul, who averages 16.6 points per game and often carries the Illini (22-12, 8-10 Big Ten). “Brandon Paul is a big shot taker and he’s a big shot maker,” Boyle said. Roberson, who feels comfortable checking players on the perimeter, usually draws the assignment of guarding the opponent’s top scoring threat. In this case, that’s Paul. And because the Illini employ a three-guard lineup, CU guards Spencer Didwiddie and Askia Booker will be manned up out front as well. “I’m going to try to not give (Paul) any breathing room, dictate where he goes, not where he wants to go, just be aggressive with him,” Roberson said Thursday. “I’m going to try not to let him get shots off because he’s a dangerous player and he likes the 3-ball. We will have a great game plan for him, and I’ll have to execute it.” Illinois is 7-4 when Paul scores 20 or more points. Perhaps more telling: The seventh-seeded Illini went 4-0 when he scored 25 or more, including a 35-point explosion by Paul on Dec. 8

Groce’s résumé easy for Illini seniors to embrace

No. 7 Illinois vs. No. 10 Colorado 2:40 p.m. Friday, TNT Recently named Pac-12 defensive player of the year by the league’s coaches, Roberson usually plays forward. But he has quick feet, and it’s not unusual to see him guard perimeter players. The 6-foot-7 Roberson will have a size advantage over the 6-4 Paul, and for the Illini star it may feel awkward to face a taller player. “The thing I appreciated most watching Roberson (on film) is his intelligence. I think his IQ’s tremendous,” Illinois coach John Groce said. “I watch him on film and see how he anticipates, his vision. That makes him a great defender.”

Down low Colorado’s 6-10 freshman center Josh Scott will have his hands full with Illinois’ Nnanna Egwu, a 6-11 sophomore. Egwu hasn’t produced big numbers (6.4 points per game, 4.6 rebounds), but provides tremendous energy. Scott must avoid getting into early foul trouble while trying to stay with such an active player. At forward, CU freshman Xavier Johnson will have to chase Illinois’ 6-9 Tyler Griffey all over the court. Griffey has attempted 113 3-pointers and rarely sets up in the low

Up high Look for Colorado’s 6-6 sophomore point guard, Spencer Dinwiddie, to also get opportunities to help out on Paul. Otherwise, Dinwiddie will be on 6-3 D.J. Richardson, who ranks third on Illinois’ career 3point list and has made at least one 3-pointer in 40

at Gonzaga, the only home loss this season for the Zags, the top seed in the West Regional. “Brandon is a big guard who can put the ball on the floor,” Boyle said. “He can shoot the ball from deep, and they run a lot of screens for him. He’ll let it fly when he catches it. Andre is going to have to get through a lot of screens. He’ll get some bumps and bruises. But using his length and athleticism to be there on the catch and play

post. On the flip side, CU’s Johnson has a big advantage in athleticism and would do well to post up against Griffey.

Off the bench It would appear Illinois has the edge here, although neither team depends heavily on its subs. The big difference is Illinois junior Joseph Bertrand, a 6-6 reserve guard who has scored in double figures nine times.

Coaching Colorado’s Tad Boyle can outcoach many of his colleagues, but first-year Illinois coach John Groce also has the reputation as a terrific strategist and motivator. Groce was a longtime assistant to Thad Matta (Butler, Xavier and Ohio State) before getting his break as a head coach with Ohio University. Groce led the Bobcats to a four-year record of 85-56 and won three NCAA Tournament games in two appearances. Tom Kensler, The Denver Post

Senior guard Brandon Paul, with a 16.6-point average, leads Illinois in scoring and has made 74-of-223 3-point attempts. Jim Young, Reuters

Brandon’s shot high is the key. (Paul) has a quick release. He’s a very capable shooter of getting hot.” Paul isn’t often guarded by an opponent taller than he is. But it doesn’t appear that Paul has lost any sleep over the matchup against Roberson. “I know he’s real athletic, so it’s going to be a challenge,” Paul said. “But we put ourselves in position to be successful. And I know my team-

mates are going to do a good job of getting me in positions to score.” Illinois coach John Groce sounded as if he was weary of the Roberson vs. Paul talk. “I want to make one thing crystal clear,” Groce said during his interview session Thursday. “It’s not Roberson vs. Paul, it’s Illinois vs. Colorado. I think Brandon, as an older player, understands that.”

AUSTIN JOURNAL

Boyle, the recruiter, sees Texas as potential many-star state

By Tom Kensler The Denver Post

austin, texas» If college athletes had a preference, most would prefer to play all four years for the same head coach. Entering their senior year, three Illinois starters had to adjust to new head coach John Groce. That was made easier because of the reputation the 41-year-old Groce brought with him after replacing longtime coach Bruce Weber. In four seasons as head coach of Ohio University, Groce twice guided the Bobcats to the NCAA Tournament. And both times, his team pulled upsets. Ohio reached the Sweet 16 last March as a No. 13 seed, defeating fourth-seeded Michigan and 12th-seeded South Florida before losing to top-seeded North Carolina. Groce’s 2009-10 team also won a game in the NCAA Tournament. “It’s been great,” said Illinois senior guard D.J. Richardson. “We trust what the coaches have to say. Coming off a strong season that they had over at Ohio, it was exciting. They got here, and from Day One everybody on the team bought in. I think we showed a lot of maturity.” Another senior, forward Tyler Griffey, said a key was Groce and his assistants going out of their way to bond with their new players — on and off the court. “Each day that went by, the relationships were built,” Griffey said. “We know the success that he had last year in this tournament. It’s something that we can look forward to and build on.” Groce calmed some fears by telling his players it was their team, not his. “I just kind of listened and watched, to get to know the players,” he said. That can be a lesson for a coach in any sport.

consecutive games. That leaves Colorado’s smallest guard, 6-2 Askia Booker, on 6-1 Tracy Adams, so the matchups, at least physically, look good for Colorado. But defenses have been trying to stop Illinois’ guard-oriented attack all season and the Illini have been able to work free for open looks.

Key matchup: CU’s Andre Roberson vs. Illinois’ Brandon Paul

By Tom Kensler The Denver Post

austin, texas» hortly after the NCAA Tournament bracket was revealed, delighted Colorado coach Tad Boyle told reporters that Austin “was No. 1 on my list” among the eight possible destinations for second- and third-round games. Boyle wasn’t talking about the night life in a city that proclaims to be the “live music capital of the world.” He wanted Austin because Texas is prime recruiting territory. “We’re always going to recruit Texas,” Boyle said. “It’s a great opportunity to showcase our program to the state of Texas.” Three years ago, Boyle signed a relatively unheralded forward from San Antonio, Andre Roberson. All Roberson has done is develop into one of the nation’s top rebounders and, this season, the Pac-12 defensive player of the year. Last November, Boyle went to the Lone Star State for another 6-foot-7 forward, Dustin Thomas, who recently completed his senior year at Pleasant Grove High School in Texarkana, Texas. Thomas, like Roberson, is considered a late bloomer. But he wasn’t completely

S

overlooked. He received an offer from Oklahoma before signing with the Buffaloes last November. Thomas can handle the ball and shoot behind the 3-point arc. “Dustin is going to be a good player for us,” Boyle said. Boyle has said that Colorado, California and Texas are his emphasis in recruiting, although in November the Buffs signed big guards from Tacoma, Wash., (6-6 Tre’shaun Fletcher) and Mesa, Ariz., (6-5 Jaron Hopkins). Fletcher is rated a national top-100 prospect (No. 91) by Scout.com. Hopkins just missed Rivals.com’s top-100 list at No. 110. Recruiting for the 2014 class is underway and, according to Rivals.com, CU is looking at 6-3 junior Trey Dilworth of Round Rock, which is just north of Austin.

Harris-Tunks back. CU’s depth got a boost this week when doctors cleared reserve center Shane Harris-Tunks, who suffered a concussion in the Pac-12 Tournament loss to Arizona. Harris-Tunks, a fourth-year junior, returned to practice Wednesday and will be available for Friday’s NCAA Tournament game against Illinois. That’s good news for the Buffs and especially for Harris-Tunks, who is scheduled

to graduate in May and has announced that this will be his final season of college ball. It would have been a shame if he had missed playing in his second NCAA Tournament.

Hoops background. Former Broncos tight end Jeb Putzier is serving as color analyst here alongside CU play-by-play announcer Mark Johnson. Putzier, a former Boise State football standout who lives in Idaho, has worked three CU basketball games — a road game at Utah and the two games last week in the Pac-12 Tournament. Putzier, 6-4 and 250 pounds during his NFL career, said he played basketball well enough in high school to attract one Division I offer — from Idaho State. While at Boise State, Putzier also played one season of basketball, as a sophomore when attrition had decimated the roster. “I was a rebounder, screens, do the dirty work kind of guy,” Putzier said. With his football mentality, no surprise there. Tom Kensler: 303-954-1280, tkensler@denverpost.com or twitter.com/tomkensler

Vander Blue scores the winning points for third-seeded Marquette in Thursday’s thriller against 14thseeded Davidson, a secondround game at Rupp Arena in Lexington, Ky. Marquette won 59-58.

East Regional BLUE SEALS WIN FOR MARQUETTE lexington, ky.» Vander Blue’s layup with one second left capped Marquette’s rally from a nine-point deficit and gave the third-seeded Golden Eagles a 59-58 victory over Davidson in the NCAA Tournament on Thursday. Blue and Jamil Wilson made consecutive 3-pointers to bring Marquette (24-8) within 58-57 with 11 seconds left. The Golden Eagles then caught a huge break when De’Mon Brooks’ long inbounds pass went out of bounds at midcourt with 5.5

seconds left, providing another opportunity. Blue took full advantage after getting Wilson’s inbounds pass, driving left and finding room for the winning basket. Blue scored seven of Marquette’s final 11 points to finish with 16. Jake Cohen’s 20 points led Davidson (26-8), which seemed in control leading 4940 with 6½ minutes left before Marquette rallied.

MICHIGAN RUNS PAST SOUTH DAKOTA STATE auburn hills, mich.» Glenn Robinson III scored 21 points, and Mitch McGary added 13 points and nine rebounds, helping fourth-seeded Michigan overcome a rough night for Trey Burke in a 71-56 NCAA Tournament win over 13th-seeded South Dakota State on Thursday night. Burke made only two field goals and left the game briefly in the second half after a hard fall under the basket. The star point guard came back after that, but he finished with only six points. Michigan (27-7) advanced anyway behind Robinson, McGary and Tim Hardaway Jr., who scored 21 points. South Dakota State (25-10) trailed by only four at halftime but couldn’t keep up. High-scoring guard Nate Wolters was held to 10 points. Burke was held in single digits for the first time all season. Michigan lost to another No. 13 seed, Ohio, in last year’s tournament. The Wolverines looked vulnerable again at halftime of this one. They led 30-26, but Burke hadn’t made a shot from the field.

On this night, though, he had plenty of help. Robinson, the son of the former Purdue star with the same name, scored Michigan’s first 11 points of the second half, including three 3-pointers. Robinson put the Wolverines up 41-30 with a 3. He finished 8-of-9 from the field.

VCU 88, Akron 42• Troy Daniels had 23 points, Juvonte Reddic scored 21 and the Rams (27-8) routed the Zips (26-7) in the most lopsided victory by a fifth-seeded team over a No. 12 seed in NCAA Tournament history. The previous mark was set by Wyoming in a 35-point win over Howard in 1981 and matched by Tennessee against Long Beach State in 2007, according to Stats Inc. Demetrius Treadwell was one of two Akron players in double figures, scoring a team-high 15 points. Akron was seriously short-handed, and it showed. In addition to playing without suspended point guard Alex Abreu, the Zips had other problems as well. Starting guard Brian Walsh and reserve center Pat Forsythe were limited by the flu, and reserve guard Deji Ibitayo wasn’t even in uniform because of back spasms. The Associated Press

TOP-SEEDED GONZAGA NEARLY FRITTERS AWAY COVETED SPOT

shots, making 10 3-pointers, harassing its star player, Kelly Olynyk, and never letting the Bulldogs out of striking range.

salt lake city» All year long, Southern coach Roman Banks kept telling his players that they should try to be like Gonzaga. On Thursday, they almost beat Gonzaga. The 16th-seeded Jaguars played shoulder-to-shoulder with one of the best teams in the country, before falling 64-58 to the Zags in the second round of the NCAA Tournament. With 3:45 left, this was a tie game. From there, the Jaguars (23-10) didn’t make another field goal, while Gonzaga’s Gary Bell Jr. and Kevin Pangos each hit 3-pointers to help Gonzaga (32-2) pull away. Southern came up short in its quest to become the first No. 16 to knock off a No. 1. No. 16 seeds are now 0-113, though Southern stood out as one of those teams that really had a chance. “We were basically an unknown ballclub that showed they can play the game of basketball,” Banks said. “But we came here to win a ballgame, not play a ballgame.” Still, this was a darn good showing for a program nearly wiped off the map three years ago because of an NCAA investigation into problems in the classroom. Southern still has players on the roster who were around for the 20-plus-loss seasons that ensued. Banks said he looked to Gonzaga — tiny school with big dreams — as the program his players should try to emulate. Bulldogs coach Mark Few said he wasn’t surprised the game was so close. “The more I watched film on them, the more I thought, ‘This could be a real grinder,’” Few said of the Southwestern Athletic Conference champions. “They don’t give you many easy opportunities. They’re very patient on offense.” Led by Derick Beltran’s 21 points, Southern made life hard on the West Coast Conference champions from beginning to end, blocking eight

Malcolm Armstead scored 22 points, Cleanthony Early added 21 and the ninth-seeded Shockers ousted Pittsburgh. Freshman Steven Adams led Pitt (24-9) with 13 points and 11 rebounds. Call Hall added 11 points for the Shockers (27-8). Wichita State forced Pitt into 15 turnovers and held the Panthers to 35 percent shooting, including 1-of-17 from 3-point range. Pitt’s leading scorer, Tray Woodall, missed his first four shots and finished with two points. He shot 1-of12, including 0-of-5 from beyond the arc, with five turnovers. “I’m sorry for our seniors to go out this way. They had great careers, and won a lot of games for us,” Pitt coach Jamie Dixon said of Dante Taylor and Woodall, who wept during postgame interviews. Said Woodall: “We weren’t surprised at all. Coming into this game, Coach emphasized to us that they were real physical. These guys were real tough.”

Wichita State 73, Pittsburgh 55•

Arizona 81, Belmont 64• Mark Lyons scored 23 points and the sixthseeded Wildcats (26-7) used their huge size advantage to shut down the Bruins (26-7), who are 0-6 in tourney games. Arizona held a 44-18 edge on the boards, outscored Belmont 36-18 in the paint and blocked five shots. “I was more impressed with team I saw tonight than I was scouting them,” Belmont coach Rick Byrd acknowledged afterward. “I thought they were more engaged and focused and I think if they play that way, they can beat a lot of people.” The Wildcats made 9-of-17 3pointers, including a critical one from Solomon Hill with 4:40 remaining to stop an 11-2 Belmont run, and shot 57 percent overall. Arizona moves on to face 14thseeded Harvard, which upset New Mexico. The Associated Press

As Dwight Freeney and John Abraham took turns visiting Thursday with the Broncos at Dove Valley, the Baltimore Ravens made a strong push for Elvis Dumervil. Perhaps this dragged-out Dumervil pay-cut saga is nearing its end. The Ravens have delivered a contract offer to Dumervil, according to two NFL sources. However, the sources say the Broncos have offered slightly more money in the early portion of the deal. The Broncos’ money has tightened because of a $4.89 million dead-money, salary cap hit they absorbed while releasing Dumervil last week, so re-signing the defensive end likely would mean releasing a player or two off their roster. The Miami Dolphins and Tennessee Titans are talking with Dumervil’s agent, Tom Condon, but have not made formal offers, according to the two sources. Dumervil, 29, had been with the Broncos since he was one of their fourth-round draft choices in 2006. He missed the 2010 season because of an injury but had 63½ sacks in his other six, an average of 10.6 sacks per year. He has been named to three Pro Bowl teams. “There will be a plan in place and John Elway will execute it,’’ Broncos president Joe Ellis said Wednesday as he was leaving the NFL owners meetings in Phoenix. “It would be great to see Elvis come back. He’s been a great player for the Broncos. Time will tell.’’ After the Broncos paid Dumervil $14 million in 2011 and another $14 million in 2012, Elway, the Broncos’ front-office boss, and Mike Sullivan, the team’s contract negotiator and salary cap manager, informed Dumervil’s agent, Marty Magid, at the NFL scouting combine last month they did not want to pay his client another $12 million in 2013. After acrimonious and protracted negotiations, a revision to the final three years of Dumervil’s contract was orally agreed upon last Friday. The $30 million sum of the contract

KISZLA «FROM 1B “We would like to be tougher, both physically and mentally,” Elway told me recently, explaining one way he intends to improve his 13-3 team from last season. Not that Elway needs my advice, but if there’s one thing any NFL team can count on from Urlacher? He will bring the tough. The Bears offered Urlacher a guaranteed $1 million, plus incentives. Urlacher considered the offer a slap in the face. To be sure, most of us would like to be slapped once a year in precisely the same manner. But has it ever been a really smart idea to poke a stick at this Bear and get Urlacher mad? If his knee holds up, there’s another Pro Bowl season or two in Urlacher. Of course, finding out would be a gamble on the part of Elway. When it’s Super Bowl or bust with No Plan B, doesn’t the potential reward outweigh the risk? Bears cornerback Charles Tillman, an all-star who recognizes talent when he sees it, told the Chicago Sun-Times that Urlacher is still capable of holding up for the rigors of a 16-game NFL schedule. Tillman added: “He was the heart and soul of our team — the defense especially — and he will be missed. I wish him the best. I didn’t want to see him go. He still has juice in the tank.” Relying too heavily on old NFL stars can get even the smartest team architect fired. Nevertheless, Elway has a three-year window of championship opportunity with Manning, a limited budget and the need for more playmakers on defense. The Broncos and Dumervil have tried everything to patch up their differences and get back together, short of calling in Dr. Phil to mediate. It made sense for a while. Doom did not earn three trips to the Pro Bowl in the past four seasons by accident. But, like many a good relationship, this one lost that loving feeling and has been

remained, although his 2013 salary was reduced from $12 million to $8 million. However, when the signature page of the revised contract did not make it from a fax machine at a Kinko’s in Miami to the Broncos’ offices in time for the Broncos to send off the final paperwork to the NFL office in New York by 2 p.m., the revised deal never was executed. Instead, minutes before that deadline, the Broncos terminated his original contract and Dumervil became a free agent. Once he hit the market, there was immediate mutual interest between Dumervil and the Ravens. The connection is Baltimore linebackers coach Don “Wink’’ Martindale, who was the Broncos’ linebackers coach in 2009 when Dumervil posted his career-best 17 sacks. That season, the Broncos were using a three down linemen-four linebackers system where Dumervil was moved from defensive end to outside linebacker for the first time in his career. The Ravens, who won the Super Bowl last month, use a similar 3-4 defensive system. Before the Ravens entered negotiations with Dumervil, the Broncos had submitted a new three-year offer Monday night. Dumervil’s camp, though, was not happy with the discounted salary in the second year of the Broncos’ proposal. If the Broncos and Dumervil finally part ways, Denver is expected to sign Freeney or Abraham. Freeney, 33, played his first 11 seasons with the Indianapolis Colts. He had only five sacks last season. Abraham, who will soon turn 35, played six seasons with the New York Jets and the past seven with the Atlanta Falcons. He had 10 sacks last year. Both Freeney and Abraham, though, are speed rushers who are leaving teams that played indoors on an artificial surface. The Broncos play outside and on grass at Sports Authority Field at Mile High. Mike Klis: 303-954-1055, mklis@denverpost.com or twitter.com/mikeklis

soured forever by money issues. Place the blame wherever you want, but Dumervil wrecked $5 million of Denver’s available salary cap space. Some folks would like Broncos owner Pat Bowlen to fix it with a bold stroke of a pen in his checkbook. Yeah, right. And if I wrecked your car today, would you let me take it back out for a spin tomorrow? Only if you’re a saint. Or a fool. The Broncos need a defensive end to divert some of the blocking focus from linebacker Von Miller. One of Manning’s old buddies from Indianapolis, Dwight Freeney, has been asked in to see if the Dove Valley digs are to his liking. Between Freeney and Urlacher, the Broncos might have one veteran who does damage to opposing quarterbacks and another who spends the majority of next season soothing his aching joints in the cold tub. Why try to guess which one, if Elway can sign both? Maybe the Broncos could even get Urlacher and Freeney for roughly the price of Dumervil. Everybody loves a bargain. When former New England receiver Wes Welker was introduced last week as the newest distinguished member of the Broncos, coach John Fox stood near the front of a room crowded with microphones and cameras. As Welker stepped to the podium to answer questions, there was the sound of one coach clapping amid the media curmudgeons. I caught Foxy’s eye, shook my head and shot him a grin. “Hey, Kizzy,” Fox told me later, “you were killing me for clapping for Welker. Heck, that’s what I thought you were supposed to do when a good player joins the team. I’m happy to have him.” Should the team find a way to land Urlacher and Freeney, the coach wouldn’t be the only person in Broncos Country to stand up and applaud.

Dawson/ Wallace Dance, in its rebirth Troupe shows new life after David Taylor’s exit By Ray Mark Rinaldi The Denver Post

The contemporary dance business is built on personality. Companies take the names of the people who run them, do their movement. The loyalty of everyone from the dancers to the board of directors is centered on a belief in the talents of the man or woman at the top. So when a founder departs, companies tend to die natural deaths. And that’s what might have happened when David Taylor exited his 3-decade-old Denver troupe, David Taylor Dance Theatre, just more than two years ago. The operation had no natural leader and a $300,000 debt. It did, however, have James Wallace, a veteran company member and choreographer and an undaunted disciple of what the remaining dancers still could do together. He hung on, reshaping the organization, negotiating with creditors and wisely taking on a new managing partner, veteran dancer and chorographer Gregory Dawson, who brought considerable skill to the team. Two years later, the debt is erased, the dancers are rehearsed and the Dawson/Wallace Dance Project is making fresh work. Its concerts this weekend are meant to showcase its comeback. For the dance community, it’s a reincarnation worth watching. DANCE » 4C

ho watches police procedurals, those standard-issue crime dramas all over the airwaves? Does anyone pay attention to the “CSI”s and “NCIS”s and other acronyms dotting the schedule in this post-network age? Tens of millions of Americans do every week. They’re just quiet about it. While experimental webisodes, original Netflix releases and YouTube channels draw press attention for their innovative styles, pitches and business models, the broadcast networks’ prime-time cop shows still draw the crowds. Get this: “NCIS” posted more than 20 million viewers for the last seven episodes. “NCIS” beat “American Idol” in a head-to-head hour for the first time this season in both demographics and households. Spring in the air means season finales for a slew of crime procedurals, those gruesome, by-the-numbers dramas that regularly populate the Nielsen Top 25.

Strand, Dawson /Wallace Dance Project

Seeing and believing: Timberlake outshines his hype By Ricardo Baca Denver Post Pop Music Critic

The peak of saturation that surrounds large media events these days — say, the release of a big record or a major film — can backfire on a multiplatinum artist or blockbuster film just as easily as it can propel them to record sales numbers. But it’s impossible to see those results until a few weeks after the big bang goes down. Justin Timberlake’s big bang dropped this week, when his third album, “The 20/20 Experience,” was released on Tuesday. The lead-up was intense, including but not limited to: A much-hyped Grammy performance, a smashing turn on “Saturday Night Live” as both host and musical guest, an all-week-long stint on “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” and an

awesomely intimate concert in Austin, Texas, during the South by Southwest Music Festival. Between those events and others — including his recent stop into BET’s “106 and Park,” his exclusive at Target stores (also a collaboration with Clear Channel Radio and The CW) and a plethora of other new/old media promotions — there’s a good chance you knew JT was releasing an album this week. But did that daunting amalgam of hype fuel your inner consumer, or did it turn you off to Timberlake’s likable visage? Speaking for myself, I couldn’t get enough. I still can’t. With every meaningful opportunity to spend time with JT, I jumped. I finished (opening monologue-last skit) my first “SNL” episode of the season because of him. I visited

iTunes for the first time in 2013 because JT’s album was streaming there. I waited in line at SXSW on Saturday for Timberlake’s appearance at the Myspace Secret Show, missing many other bands in the process; after getting in, I stood in a stiflingly crowded room full of over-it festivalgoers only to witness his magic live. And I’ve been singing his songs ever since. They just won’t leave my head. And for any one artist to stand out after such a mammoth music festival experience, it’s a telling sign. His first record, “Justified,” will always be my favorite, so those songs are the strongest in my mind’s playlist. (I can’t help but recall confessing to my friends in 2002 my adoration of his very first single, “Like I Love JUSTIN » 14C

Steve Carell and Olivia Wilde star in “The Incredible Burt Wonderstone.” Warner Bros. Pictures

Selected mini-reviews of films in theaters, listed alphabetically:

“Identity Thief”

“Emperor”

Drama. 6 6 6 5 PG-13. To fully appreciate the strange mix of unintended comedy and real achievement in Tommy Lee Jones’ performance as Gen. Douglas MacArthur, it helps to have some familiarity with MacArthur. The film deals with a crucial chapter in post-war history, in which the future direction of Japan was being decided by MacArthur and a handful of advisers.(Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle) 105 minutes

“The Gatekeepers” Documentary. 6 6 6 ¼ PG-13. Like “Argo” and “Zero Dark Thirty,” Dror Moreh’s “The Gatekeepers,” plunges us into the murk of conflict, terror and clandestine operations. Like those dramas, the film was also nominated for an Oscar. Unlike those two films, it’s a documentary. It is just as gripping and far more illuminating about the very un-sexy shades of gray facing those charged with preventing acts of terror. Moreh reached out to the six men who’ve headed the Israeli security organization known as Shin Bet. To his surprise, they agreed to talk. And what they have to say is chilling, instructional, even moving. At the Chez Artiste. (Kennedy) 97 minutes

“The Incredible Burt Wonderstone”

Comedy. 6 6 6 5 PG-13. In this showbiz fable, Steve Carell dons the permatan and outre locks of a Vegas magician who must hit bottom before rising to the wonder of his beloved craft. (Insufferable Burt Wonderstone is more like it.) Steve Buscemi is Burt’s partner and former best friend, Anton. Jim Carrey arrives tattooed and crazed as the David Blaine-style street magician Steve Gray. Pretty lady Olivia Wilde is pretty funny as magician assistant Jane. And Alan Arkin conjures his typical sardonic magic as Burt’s childhood hero. Some of the presto-change-o lessons in this comedy come far too easily. Still, this “Burt Wonderstone” pulls some sweet moments and deep laughs out of a story that might have been thin air. (Kennedy) 101 minutes

Comedy. 6 6 5 5 R. “Oooh, honey, less is more,” the flamboyant hairstylist whispers, out of earshot, at Diana (Melissa McCarthy) as she bombs her head with hairspray and trowels on the eye shadow. That’s never the case with McCarthy, the larger-than-life comic whose big movie break was “Bridesmaids.” She riffs, tosses back belts of booze and punches galore as the crass and crude title character in “Identity Thief.” But “less is more” might have helped this cumbersome comedy. (Roger Moore, McClatchy News Service) 110 minutes

“Jack the Giant Slayer”

Kids tale. 6 6 6 5 PG-13. A big-budget, effects-laden, 3-D retelling of the Jack and the Beanstalk legend may seem like the unlikeliest pairing yet of director Bryan Singer and writer Christopher McQuarrie, but “Jack the Giant Slayer” ends up being smart, thrilling and a whole lot of fun. (Christy Lemire, Associated Press) 117 minutes

“Oz the Great and Powerful”

na Girl are the closest this prequel — directed by Sam Raimi and starring James Franco as Oscar Diggs, Michelle Williams as Glinda and Mila Kunis as Theodora — gets to being indelible. It’s not that this adventure is flat-footed. Hardly. The journey along a yellowbrick pathway has its visual wonders, just much of it feels too borrowed from a certain 1939 classic. Rachel Weisz plays Theodora’s truly wicked sis, Evanora. (Kennedy) 123 minutes

Action. 6 6 ¼ 5 PG-13. As a businessman scrambling to save his son from a federal prison sentence, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has to play fear, tough love, pity and panic — and he’s a bit in over his head. But that’s the point of “Snitch,” a straight-no-chaser thriller “inspired by a true story.” Too many scenes lack dramatic punch and play like filler. But Johnson is pretty good at being a guy in over his head, sharing scenes with flinty pros like Susan Sarandon, Benjamin Bratt and Barry Pepper. (Moore) 112 minutes

“Quartet” Final acts. PG-13. Making a film about life in the spotlight and the drive to stay in the game, doesn’t seem like much of a stretch, or a risk, for Dustin Hoffman. He certainly knows the terrain. But instead of delving into the human psyche, the actor’s first turn in the director’s chair is a genteel comedy. It’s set in a refined “Masterpiece Theatre”-styled world of aging musicians, their final days being played out in a British retirement home. At the Chez Artiste. (Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times) 97 minutes

- Pete Hammond, MOVIELINE

CHARMERS, AND THE MAGNIFICENT DAME MAGGIE SMITH IS THE DIVA DIVINE.”

“Stoker” Horror. 6 6 ¼ 5 R. Park Chan-wook, the celebrated South Korean filmmaker, has long drawn Hitchcock comparisons. The film begins in a lush montage of rhythmic freeze frames of India Stoker (Mia Wasikowska), with an ominous police car in the background, ruminating in a voice-over about her nature. The foreshadowing sets the tone for a pulpy coming-ofage story, where India’s transition into womanhood comes via incestuous desires and buried corpses. Matthew Goode and Nicole Kidman also star.

Colorado’s colorful arts and music scene

at the History Center

things celebrated at WOW’s NanoDays

saturday-sunday. No sacred musical work is more highly regarded than Johann Sebastian Bach’s “St. Matthew Passion.” Bach brought all his powers to the effort, scoring it for orchestra and choir and squeezing considerable emotion from the Gospel of Matthew’s dramatic climax. The Baroque Chamber Orchestra of Colorado presents the piece in its entirety (which is rare) this weekend on period instruments (even rarer). Joining in is St. Martin’s Chamber Choir, plus a serious lineup of soloists, including tenor Aaron Sheehan. 7 p.m. Saturday, Montview Presbyterian Church, 1980 Dahlia St.; or 3 p.m. Sunday, Bethany Lutheran Church, 4500 E. Hampden Ave., Cherry Hills Village. $35. 303-889-1012 or bcocolorado.org. Ray Mark Rinaldi

Side Show

“The “Voice” adds coaches Usher, Shakira

friday-saturday. The Boulder-based choral group Ars Nova always wins us over, for its high-caliber singing, of course, but also for its smart programs. This weekend’s concerts, assembled by artistic director Thomas Edward Morgan, are a good example. The music stretches five centuries, tapping the work of writers inspired by overlapping themes. So audiences will hear links between the 16th century’s Josquin des Prez and today’s Eric Whitacre, whose “When David Heard” will be a highlight of the evening. Both weekend concerts are at churches named for St. John — so don’t confuse them. 7:30 p.m. Friday, Saint John’s Cathedral, 1350 Washington St., and 7:30 p.m. Saturday, St. John’s Episcopal Church, 1419 Pine St., Boulder. $22 both shows. 303-499-3165 or arsnovasingers.com. Ray Mark Rinaldi

starts saturday. There’s no excuse for boredom this spring break, especially when the History Colorado Center presents a full roster of activities for families. Each day brings a different “BYOA” workshop — that’s “bring your own adult” for hands-on fun and learning. Workshop topics include Denver dioramas (Monday), plants of the Southwest (Tuesday) and “History CSI” (Thursday). Friday’s workshop is a special “LEGO-rado” session. History Colorado Center, 1200 Broadway; 303-447-8679. Registration is required for workshops: The fee is $15 per adult-child pair for museum members, $20 for nonmembers, plus $10 for additional children. Friday’s LEGO event is $40 per member pair, $45 for nonmembers. View the schedule and register for workshops at historycoloradocenter.org. Kathleen St. John

wednesday. Denver-based media upstart Audiovore is on a mission to document the Colorado arts scene with high-quality audio and video, so it makes sense that it’s teaming with Meep Records and local booker Mountain to Sound for the Fortunate Listener series. The idea: Pair two Colorado bands for a live audio-video recording — which attendees can order at the show — and then press it as a vinyl single with screen-printed artwork. The sets, which occur every two weeks, begin Wednesday at the Mercury Cafe with readings from Andrew Orvedahl and Robert Rutherford’s acclaimed Narrators group, above, and performances from indie acts Inner Oceans and Prism Waves. 8 p.m. 2199 California St. $10.

Pop star Pink and her big, fun show at the Can Now on sale Pink has grown up quite a bit since her 2000 debut, but if one thing is clear from last year’s “The Truth About Love,” it’s that the passionate, powerful pop-rock firebrand is still all about having fun. Her tour, which nabbed Denver’s Churchill for its April-May dates in Europe, announced a second leg this week — including an Oct. 18 Pepsi Center show. No support act has been announced, but wouldn’t it be fun if a certain Denver band opened? Tickets are on sale at 10 a.m. March 30. ($39.50-$125, TicketHorse) Horror-metal legend Rob Zombie is in good (and heavy) company at Rockstar Energy Drink’s sixth annual Mayhem Festival. Five Finger Death Punch, Mastodon, Amon Amarth, Children of Bodom, Machine Head, Behemoth, Huntress, City in the Sea and more will back up Zombie’s headlining slot at Fiddler’s Green Amphitheatre on July 7. Tickets are on sale at noon Friday. ($25.50-$73, livenation.com)

Darius Rucker’s effortless crossover from pop-rock to pop-country happened years ago, but we remain impressed at the audience that the former Hootie & the Blowfish vocalist commands. Rucker will return to Red Rocks in all his twangy glory on June 6 to promote his new solo album, with openers Rodney Atkins and Jana Kramer. Tickets are on sale at 10 a.m. Friday. ($39.50-$42.50, Ticketmaster)

Fans of ’90s pop-rock, this is your week: Matchbox Twenty and Goo Goo Dolls announced a co-headlining concert at Fiddler’s Green on July 15, with opener Kate Earl ($25-$89, livenation.com). Just before that, Barenaked Ladies will reprise the “Last Summer on Earth” tour, with Ben Folds Five and Guster, at a June 19 show at Red Rocks ($50-$100, Ticketmaster). Tickets for both are on sale at 10 a.m. Saturday.

St. Patrick’s Day won’t come for another year, but Boston Celtic-punks Dropkick Murphys don’t care. They’re playing the Fillmore Auditorium on May 29 behind their eighth studio album “Signed and Sealed in Blood.” Tickets are on sale at 10 a.m. Saturday. ($32.50, livenation.com)

A Heart and Led Zeppelin double-bill would, of course, be fantastic. But we’ll settle for Heart with Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Experience at Fiddler’s Green on Aug. 20. Tickets are on sale at 10 a.m. Saturday. ($20-$93.50, livenation.com)

The saga of Morrissey’s oft-delayed Denver concert came to a close this week when AEG Live announced the singer’s April 26 Buell Theatre show — and entire North American tour — has been canceled. Refunds are available at the point of purchase. John Wenzel: 303-954-1642 or jwenzel@denverpost.com

Best shows of the week A few days after the release of his first album in five years, Billy Bragg has chosen Colorado as the state to kick off his 2013 tour. The seasoned singer/songwriter has spent more than 30 years in the business making protest-focused music spanning a number of genres. This flexibility of sound is obvious from his origins touring London with punk band Riff Raff to his later collaborations with the indie group Wilco, and his ability to craft a romantic love song. This includes his role as the harborer of folk music and protest songs in England. Bragg plays the Gothic Theatre on Saturday, and tickets are $30.75-$35.

Even for those living in an endless summer on beautiful beaches, there’s stuff to be angry about. Wavves takes the “trouble-in-paradise” cliche and turns it into a juxtaposition of glittering, sunny beaches with a dingy, bottle-strewn bar. For any hipster-wanna-bepunk, there’s something ironic and satisfying about thrashing around to crunching Beach Boys power chords. This might explain the sudden popularity of this surf-punk sound. Wavves plays in Colorado at the Larimer Lounge on Wednesday, just a day after the release of its new album, “Afraid of Heights.” (Tickets: $18-$20)

DENVER OPERA HARD TO FIND... OR IS IT? Opera Colorado’s scaled-back 2013 season has Denver opera fans looking around for other options. Here’s one we have high hopes for: the Lamont School of Music’s production of “Susannah,” set for April 18-21. Carlisle Floyd’s neo-classic is a solid choice for the school’s young performers. The opera, about a woman branded a sinner in rural Tennessee, premiered in 1956. It has a contemporary, youthful feel: very American and very popular.

Bloody “Olympus Has Fallen” never can get back on its feet

DANCE «FROM 1C “To some extent, people still expect to see David Taylor from us,” Dawson said this week between rehearsals. “But we’re not David Taylor anymore. We’re doing something different.” The new program features two premieres, one by Dawson and one by Wallace. In previews this week, the pieces demonstrated why the artistic partnership works. They are very different creations but complement one another by using the same 16 dancers and borrowing from a similar — and very wide — dance vocabulary. Wallace’s “Dissonance Theory” taps into everything from classical ballet to martial arts. He has his women on point but also slicing through the air with a few karate chops. It’s a difficult and, at times, disconnected work. Dancers weave in and out of each other’s arms in unpredictable ways, and sections of the piece overlap. It doesn’t all make sense, but that’s on purpose. Wallace is conveying “all of the anger, anxiety and depression,” as he puts it, we feel when confusion strikes. There is just as much going on in Dawson’s “Au Printemps Romantique,” but with considerable joy mixed in, as well. The music is Johannes Brahms and Robert Schuman, and the work borrows their ideas of counterpoint. “This piece was a year in the making,” said Dawson. Much of that time was spent just listening. “Brahms is complicated, and I wanted to come into the process knowing what I was doing musically.” Dawson taps his ballet base and he, too, puts his dancers in position; there are lovely romantic couplings in the piece. But it has a notable, and somewhat brilliant, wild side, too. Dawson recently spent some time working with the Elizabeth Streb company in New York. Streb is a pioneer in a

sort of movement that’s not exactly dance. Her style is built around a repetitive herky-jerkiness. Dancers flap, twitch, stomp and kick, not necessarily to any beat. Dawson has incorporated that aura into his own intellectual ideas. The narrative unfolds with an entertaining edge of wackiness. There might be a sudden hop, a flick, an ankle slap. It’s a lot of fun and a lot of work for the people doing it. You can hear the dancers huffing and puffing just to keep up. “Dancers want to be challenged, both physically and mentally,” said Dawson. Otherwise they get complacent. “And who wants to work with complacent dancers?” Ray Mark Rinaldi: 303-954-1540, rrinaldi@denverpost.com or twitter.com/rayrinaldi

For those who thought the last Bruce Willis movie was a little light on the casualty list, “Olympus Has Fallen” arrives toting the biggest body count since “Die Hard II.” Bystanders and tourists, soldiers, cops and Secret Service agents fall by the score in a movie about the unthinkable — a terrorist ground assault on Washington, D.C. (Hollywood is providing two such “unthinkable” assaults this year, with “White House Down” due out this summer.) This is “Die Hard in the White House,” with Gerard Butler manfully manning up as Mike Banning, the lone Secret Service Agent survivor after terrorists take over the White House and seize the president and most of the cabinet. Not without a fight, of course. This president (Aaron Eckhart) boxes. And wait’ll you see the presidential head-butt. Banning is a former White House

detail member, on the outs because of a life-or-death decision he made months before. When the gunship sweeps over D.C., when ordinary Asian tourists turn out to be terrorists, when innocent garbage trucks turn into tanks, Mike’s the man of the moment — dashing back inside his old stomping grounds, where a mastermind (Rick Yune of “Die Another Day” and “The Man with the Iron Fists”) tells the chairman of the Joint Chiefs (Robert Forster) and speaker of the House (Morgan Freeman), “I am the man in control of your White House.” Banning is the only guy who can get to the fortified presidential bunker where the hostages are. He proceeds to stab, shoot and strangle his way through legions of terrorists, quipping in his updates as he shows off his trophies, by phone, to the rest of the government, which can only ask “Is he alive?” about Mike’s latest catch. Butler is fine in this part, which demands little more of him than an ability to change magazines like he’s done it before. Many times. Mike has skills, which works against this “Die Hard.” This isn’t John McClane, ordinary cop

in over his head. Mike Banning has “special forces” on his resume, which robs the picture of some of its suspense. But there’s pathos here, amid the carnage. A good cast (Melissa Leo is a feisty secretary of defense) does what it can with a tin-eared script, making us care who lives and who dies. As an interesting side story, Mike’s wife (Radha Mitchell) is a nurse who deals with the carnage of America’s darkest day in an overwhelmed hospital emergency room. Better thrillers make more of the whole shaky state of command in such calamities, wavering over terrorist demands, stringing out the suspense and playing up the clock ticking down toward whatever nuclear doomsday awaits should our hero fail. Director Antoine Fuqua (“Shooter”) is plainly dealing with a script that shortchanges all that, and he’s not good enough to overcome it. For all the bursts of blood, the gunplay and execution-style head-shots that punctuate scores of deaths, it’s hard to see “Olympus Has Fallen” (that’s Secret Service code) as much more than another movie manifestation of a first-person shooter video game. We’ve become a head-shot nation, and our thrillers are the poorer for it.

“On the Road” hems in literary expansiveness 6 6 5 5 Road trip saga Rated R. 125 minutes. At the Mayan Theatre. By Ann Hornaday The Washington Post

Depending on your generational vantage point, Jack Kerouac’s 1957 novel “On the Road” was the defining literary event of its generation or, as Truman Capote famously observed, an example not of writing, but “just typing.” The literary and larger cultural argument that Kerouac’s book ignited and engaged — about formalism, narrative, morality and breaking open new ways of being and expression — is virtually nonexistent in “On the Road,” Walter Salles’ warm but strangely staid adaptation of a piece of literature that was never meant to be tamed as cinema. Like too many film versions of deeply psychological, interior books, Salles’ “On the Road” takes Kerouac’s breathless Beat Generation prose-poetry — created in a Benzedrine rush in front of a typewriter loaded with a 120-foot scroll of teletype paper — and reduces it to the conventional elements of plot, character and setting, resulting in an episodic picaresque that all but obliterates the crazy, brazen, axis-shifting energy of the original work. In other words, Salles has reduced “On the Road” to a story, which here begins in post-World War II New York, where Sal Paradise (Sam Riley) is living with his mother in Queens, trying to become a writer, when he makes the acquaintance of Dean Moriarty (Garrett Hedlund). Paradise and Moriarty — the fictional doppelgangers of Kerouac and his real-life confederate Neal Cassady — embark on a series of road trips during which they imbibe copious amounts of li-

quor, weed and hard-bop jazz, meet a colorful series of visionaries and reprobates and, in Cassady’s case, attract and dump a succession of long-suffering female companions. Fans of Kerouac’s novel will recognize the cardinal characters and sequences from the book, including William S. Burroughs (played in one of the film’s best performances by Viggo Mortensen), his wife Joan Vollmer (Amy Adams) and Allen Ginsberg (Tom Sturridge), who, like so many women in “On the Road,” comes under the erotic sway of Cassady only to have his heart discarded like a crushed cigarette butt. Hedlund does a competently convincing job of embodying his character’s careless seductiveness, which turns from simmering to ice-cold in the blink of a long-lashed eye. But Salles’ production is too careful, too obediently within-thelines, to convey not just the combustible push-and-pull between Cassady and Kerouac, but the experimentation of the work that defined and memorialized their friendship. To read “On the Road” is to inhale love, transgression, consciousness and America itself in one greedy gulp. To watch “On the Road” is to see people do things against backdrops that can only look puny in comparison to the expanse of one’s own imagination. (The hemmed-in feeling of “On the Road” is all the more dismaying considering Salles’ best-known film, the exhilarating 2004 drama “The Motorcycle Diaries.”) As Marylou, the teenager Cassady/Moriarty has just married when he meets Sal, Kristen Stewart never manages to look like a creature of the ’50s; something in her face and physical bearing seems rooted in the present century. For her part, Kirsten Dunst is far more

persuasive as Camille (a.k.a. Carolyn Cassady), who resembles a “Vertigo”-era Barbara Bel Geddes in her toughness and vulnerability. The best part of “On the Road” is Salles’ recognition and narrative empowerment of women who, in real life and in Kerouac’s retelling, were subject to untold cruelty and misogyny that went largely unnoticed in subsequent mythologizing of the Beat Generation. This version of “On the

“Ginger & Rosa” is British filmmaker Sally Potter’s lovingly directed coming-of-age drama, starring Elle Fanning as Ginger, right, and Alice Englert as Rosa. A240

Friends’ coming-of-age amid the Cold War a smart drama “The Croods” captures the wonder of discovery as a cave family strikes out for the wider world. DreamWorks Animation

“Croods” a touching take on an evolutionary trek 6 6 6 ¼ Animated adventure Rated PG. 91 minutes. At area theaters.

By Lisa Kennedy Denver Post Film Critic

The following observation comes with apologies to the Geico Caveman: Full of code-enabled visual artistry and infused with story-telling wisdom, “The Croods” is epochs ahead of its fear-driven cave-dad Grug. And yet, the family that leaves their cave out of necessity and embarks on a journey in DreamWorks’ latest animated feature turns out to be a touching poster clan for the joys and pangs, risks and rewards of evolving. Co-directors and co-writers Kirk DeMicco and Arvada native Chris Sanders have avoided the obvious while delivering the delightful. The terrain Grug (Nicolas Cage) and family traverse is utterly new and comes with fresh dangers. Yet, if there is a villain, its name is “Fear.” The hero? Curiosity. Emma Stone gives voice to the movie’s central protagonist, Eap, the teenager who’s starting to bristle at her father’s rules. Eap has a hankering to go toward the light. And that doesn’t mean demise but quite likely its opposite.

When she meets a guy named Guy, she begins to see the possibilities. The first most telling one being that there is another (albeit more advanced) human walking around. Voiced by Ryan Reynolds, Guy is inventive — and alone. He has a pet sloth named Belt and a looming sense that the world is coming to an end. He, too, is headed toward the light. Guy becomes a guide to the possible. Too bad that Grug’s favorite words are, “No, no, no and no.” His go-to mantra: “Fear is good. Change is bad.” Truth is Grug’s extreme caution and out-sized strength have served his family well. They are the only cave family still standing. The movie kicks off with a furious and coordinated chase for breakfast, with Grug, wife Ugga (Catherine Keener), mother-in-law Gran (Cloris Leachman) and kids Eap, Thunk and the ferocious toddler Sandy in a mad, wild dash for the day’s sustenance. The family that preys together, well, survives. Of course they are not alone in this amazing race. Nor are they solely predators. Populated with strange and imaginative beasts, “The Croods” rebuffs typical ideas about the animals that roamed eons ago. At least one resembles a Maurice Sendak creature. Where the wild things are indeed. A flock of seemingly demure pink

birds takes wing to become a mesmerizing swarm, swooping and wheeling in spellbinding unison. In this world, being spellbound is not always a good thing. “The Croods” comes with some “Avatar” moments of 3-D oohs and awe. Yet the movie never feels derivative. It captures the wonder (and more gently, the anxiety) of discovery time and time again. And the filmmakers have a hoot playing with the Croods’ encounters with, as well as their misunderstandings of, all things new. The writing is swift, clever. Yet, DeMicco and Sanders never overstate their jokes. The story unfolds in a nearly wink-free realm. OK, there is a running gag about mothers-in-law. The routine is familiar up to a point. When it tips over, what a pleasure. Eap’s narration bookends the action. But this hero’s journey doesn’t belong to one character. This is the saga of advancing as humans. When the ground shakes and the lava flows in new fissures and canyons, curiosity and problem solving trump fear; heart matters more than brawn. And even art and play have their role in survival.

6 6 6 ¼ Coming-of-age drama PG-13. 90 Minutes. At the Esquire theater.

By Lisa Kennedy Denver Post Film Critic

What hurt, nuanced terror and exhilaration there is in Sally Potter’s beautiful coming-ofage drama “Ginger & Rosa.” After a screening at last year’s Telluride Film Festival, it became clear that I hadn’t just loved Potter’s adaptation of “Orlando,” starring Tilda Swinton as Virginia Woolf’s gender-shifting character; or “Yes” (Joan Allen as a married scientist who embarks on an affair with a Lebanese cook). No, this achingly smart, lovingly directed drama set in London proved that the adoration isn’t a project-to-project whim but instead belongs squarely with the maker of those films. Potter has a profound gift for deeply felt, ideas-driven, visually stunning yet nuanced cinema. (Much of the dialogue in “Yes” was rendered in meter, iambic pentameter to be exact.) “Ginger & Rosa” may be the British filmmaker’s most accessible movie — her aim — and she pulled it off with grace. Born in 1945 in the same hospital ward to two very different mothers, best friends Ginger (Elle Fanning) and Rosa (Alice Englert) begin to make their way in the world just as the atomic bomb and the Cold War loom larger than ever. Potter was 13 at the time of the Cuban Missile Crisis; The year of that tango with oblivion, 1962 , plays

a crucial role here. Like the aforementioned dramas, “Ginger & Rosa” is also buoyed by an astonishing performance. Ginger, daughter of thwarted painter Natalie (Christina Hendricks) and a Bohemian father (Alessandro Nivola), is a poet, a seeker, a budding participant in a building Ban the Bomb movement. Shot by Robbie Ryan, “Ginger & Rosa” has a beautiful directness. It’s lush but clear-eyed. It’s a style that fortifies Potter’s notions about how deeply our personal lives are, as she’s said, “interwoven with global events.” Ginger’s life is rocked by massive shifts closer to home. As her friendship with Rosa grows more complicated, and her parents’ relationship unravels, Ginger finds some measure of solace with the Marks, a gay couple played by Timothy Spall and Oliver Platt, and their arch but aware American friend Sylvia (Annette Bening). Hendricks is sympathetic as the doubly frustrated Natalie. Not only is husband Roland drifting away, Ginger is angry with her as teen girls can be with their mothers. Ginger bears the weight of worlds personal as well as political on her slender shoulders. Fanning, now 17, makes palpable her character’s idealistic yearning for meaning and place. She was 13 at the time of the production, Newcomer Englert (recently in “Beautiful Creatures”) brings a carnal curiosity to Rosa, with her crucifix and notions of orthodoxy that appeals as well as aggravates.

“Admission” a waste of Fey and Rudd PG-13. 100 minutes. At area theaters.

By Christy Lemire The Associated Press

What should be a hilarious, long-overdue pairing of two hugely likable, superstar comedians ends up being a major disappointment with “Admission.” As much film and television work as they do, Tina Fey and Paul Rudd surprisingly never have worked together. In theory, her smart, zingy persona should mesh with his goofiness — or their shared dynamic should have some sort of life to it. Instead, Paul Weitz’s direction of Karen Croner’s script is tonally erratic: too fast in spots, and too much of a slog in others. It certainly doesn’t help that the characters, based on Jean Hanff Korelitz’s novel, feel like

types without much nuance. Even reliable comic veterans like Fey and Rudd can’t find much that’s new or fresh in these people, and as a result they have zero chemistry with each other. That’s shocking, I realize. Fey, as a Princeton University admissions officer, is always uptight, precise and emotionally closed off. Rudd, as the dogooder founder of an alternative New England high school, is always free-spirited, adventurous and open-minded. Even in the fantasy world of romantic comedies where opposites attract and sparks fly, these two have no business being together; they never change each other, and that’s supposed to be the source of comedy. Fey’s Portia Nathan has been analyzing and rejecting prospective Princetonians for 16 years now, and as evidenced by her tidy office and the ver-

batim speech she gives when visiting the nation’s top high schools, she has it down to a science. When the dean of admissions (Wallace Shawn) announces he’s retiring, Portia finds that she and a rival colleague (Gloria Reuben) are the top candidates to replace him. To distinguish herself, Portia agrees to visit the crunchygranola New Quest school at the urging of its creator, Rudd’s John Pressman, who happens to have been a classmate of hers at Dartmouth. Turns out, John has a particular student in mind for Portia to meet: the slightly odd but obviously brilliant Jeremiah (Nat Wolff), whom John believes is the child Portia gave up for adoption back when they were in college. At the same time, Portia’s longtime boyfriend unceremoniously walks out on her for

another woman (in the kind of scene that only happens in the movies) so now she’s free to be with John, who ... isn’t exactly right for her, either. “Admission” awkwardly grasps for serious feelings within all these wacky deceptions and manipulations and forces heavy, third-act emotions on us that it hasn’t earned. Some of the few moments of heft come courtesy of a radiant Lily Tomlin as Portia’s mothe. Merely the idea of Tomlin playing Fey’s mom is exciting, but watching these two strong, groundbreaking comedians share the screen is one of the film’s few real joys. And seeing the college application process behind the scenes — is actually kinda fascinating if this is indeed how it all goes down. So maybe there were some surprises here after all.

Accentuating the positive in saying “No” to Pinochet 6 6 6 5 Drama Rated R. 119 minutes. At the Chez Artiste.

By Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

James Franco steals the movie when he arrives about halfway through as a cornrowed, wannabe gangster rapper named Alien in “Spring Breakers.” Annapurna Pictures

“Spring Breakers” is a hypnotic mix of extremes 6 6 ¼ 5 Adventure Rated R. 92 minutes. At area theaters.

By Christy Lemire The Associated Press

Harmony Korine seems to want it both ways, all day, with “Spring Breakers,” his superstylized descent into a sunbaked hell where bikini-clad, gun-toting college babes serve as our guides. As writer and director, Korine wants us to be appalled and aroused, hypnotized and titillated. He wants to satirize the debauchery of girls gone wild while simultaneously reveling in it. And damned if he doesn’t pull it off. This is the rare movie that I actually found myself liking more the longer I spent away from it and the more I thought about it — mainly because I couldn’t stop thinking about it. In the moment, I found it numbingly repetitive, even boring at times: an obvious juxtaposition of sex and violence, of dreamlike aesthetics within a nightmare scenario. And it is all of those things. But it stuck with me, and it made me appreciate the genius of Korine’s approach. There is a great deal of genuine artistry in this film, which is the most polished and mainstream to date from the maker of indies like “Trash Humpers.” The exquisite images, which range from intimately gritty to eerily glowing, come from Belgian cinematographer Benoit Debie, and Cliff Martinez (“Drive”) complements them with a mesmerizing score. But “Spring Breakers” is also provocative in various

ways — totally unsurprising from the guy who wrote Larry Clark’s “Kids” at age 19 — depending on the viewer. In super slo-mo, as beer-soaked party girls cavort on the beach to the thump of electronic dance music, is that how it actually feels in the middle of it? Or is that the frightening extreme adults imagine when they dare to ponder what their kids are up to each March? The corruption of formerly squeaky-clean Disney Channel superstars Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens may be Korine’s cleverest trick of all: They get to show some range, we get to gawk. But James Franco steals the whole movie when he arrives about halfway through as a cornrowed, wanna-be gangster rapper named Alien (pronounced a-LEEN). It’s a showy, wonderfully weird performance, but Franco also finds the vulnerability beneath the bravado. And in playing a complicated, flawed ringleader, he’s much more effective here than he was in “Oz the Great and Powerful.” The young women of “Spring Breakers” have their own treacherous road to follow. The four longtime friends (Gomez, Hudgens, Ashley Benson of “Pretty Little Liars” and Rachel Korine, the director’s wife) long to escape the drudgery of their dreary college life. Spring break in Florida beckons, and after a quickand-dirty coked-up diner robbery — which three of the girls pull off without the help of Gomez’s character, the churchgoing Faith — they’re headed South. Clearly these women al-

ready were headed for trouble long before they got in the car; they’re essentially wild animals in hot pink nail polish. They just needed a little shove, which the promise of non-stop partying provides. When they get busted for narcotics possession — and the flashy Alien shows up to bail them out — their fates are sealed. He talks a lot of trash, jumping up and down on his cash-covered bed with a machine gun in each hand, flashing a devious smile through a glittering grill. But he’s also lonely and needy, and in these girls — or at least in a couple of them — he thinks he’s found his soul mates. A scene in which Korine prominently (and effectively) uses Britney Spears’ “Everytime” is a microcosm of the rest of the film, and its mixture of playfulness and danger. Alien sits down at his oh-so tasteful poolside piano and seems to expose himself emotionally by performing the haunting, plaintive ballad; Korine then plays the actual song over images of Alien’s newfound harem bouncing in bikinis and girly-pink ski masks, hoisting rifles in the air and preparing to go on a crime spree. But a surprising amount of suspense reveals itself within the ridiculousness of it all; that’s what makes “Spring Breakers” so hard to shake. They never feel like real people, these curvaceous banditas, but they are the future of America, and this might be the last, best time of their lives. We’re all screwed, Korine seems to be saying. It’s very sad — but also kinda sexy.

LGBT jail unit of “K-11” needs a breakout 6 5 5 5 Drama Unrated. 88 minutes. At area theaters.

By David Lewis San Francisco Chronicle

‘‘K-11” appears to be a cross between “Shawshank Redemption” and an LGBT prison exploitation film, but unfortunately, it lacks the dramatic storytelling heart of “Shawshank” and jettisons whatever camp exploitation potential it might have had. Too bad, because this film, involving a “classified” L.A. jail unit where gay and transgender inmates are segregated, could have been a guilty, if

ludicrous, pleasure. Instead, it’s not much of anything. The muddled story opens as drugged-out record producer Raymond Saxx lands in K-11, unaware of how he got there. As it turns out, we are just as confused as he is, and thus care little about his efforts to escape confinement. Director Jules Stewart gets some decent performances out of her actors. D.B. Sweeney seems to be having fun as the trashy warden; Kate del Castillo (as Mousey) makes for a convincingly menacing lord of the ward; and Goran Visnjic, as Ray, ably plays the straight man in the

bunch. The trouble is, the script strands all of them. Ray’s interaction with the other prisoners is not very interesting, and we never get a palpable sense of his predicament. Throughout the movie, you keep hoping that something interesting (or shocking) is about to happen, but it never does. Even though “K-11” was not meant to be a nuanced character study, a modicum of character development would have helped. In fact, a few more rewrites on the script would have done this project wonders.

Gael Garcia Bernal stars as Rene Saavedra in “No.” Sony Pictures Classics posed to the regime was that they didn’t know whether they should even vote in the first place. It was assumed that Pinochet would fix the election, so that the act of voting would be akin to participating in a fraud. The challenge was to convince people that change was possible and that they should vote; hence, the need for some positive uplift in the opposition’s advertising. Bernal is quite good as the young media specialist — it’s always surprising to see how strong a presence he is in his Spanish-language films and how he all but disappears in his American films. Is it a matter of the roles or the language? The jury is still out. Between the lines of this Oscar nominee for best foreign film is a sophisticated understanding of the options Chile faced in 1988. Though it’s pretty clear that life under a repressive military dictatorship was the worst choice, “No” has a healthy cynicism about the future the other side was offering, too. The soft-drink-style advertising was just the hint of it. What follows repression usually isn’t a golden age, but a time for embracing trivia, for people to relax and concentrate and all that is silly. And why shouldn’t they? They’ve earned the right.

LOOKING FOR WHEELS?

“No” is a Chilean drama about the 1988 election by which Chilean voters got to decide whether to retain or dismiss the military dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet. It was a yes or no vote — or “Si” or “No.” The film is a semifictional account of the “No” campaign, from its inception through the election. At center is the Mexican actor Gael Garcia Bernal, in the composite role of Rene, a slick advertising man whose crucial insight is that the “No” campaign needs to be positive. For the first time ever, the Pinochet government is allowing for opposition advertising — 15 minutes every night for almost four weeks — and the impulse of every political dissident is to present a litany of the regime’s horrors. But Rene insists on a future-based, upbeat campaign, associating the “No” vote with things like youth, rebellion and happiness. He wants to sell “No” the way he might sell a new soft drink. “No” has some of the advantages of a documentary, in that it contains many of the actual commercials that were used in 1988, both “Si” and “No.” The late 1980s was still pre-digital, so the blurred graininess makes the vintage of these advertisements apparent. The drama is just an added benefit, but it never quite rises to the level of compelling, and as a result, the movie loses a certain propulsion, here and there. Still, it always retains a level of interest, especially for those of us who don’t remember — or aren’t old enough to remember — which side won. In Chile, the dilemma for voters op-

“Brothers Size” is coarse but transcendent By Lisa Kennedy Denver Post Theater Critic

“The greatest piece of writing by an American playwright under 30 in a generation or more” stated the Chicago Tribune on the occasion of a 2010 production of Tarell Alvin McCraney’s “Brother/Sister Plays” at Steppenwolf Theatre. It is the kind of praise sure to excite interest and perhaps boost ticket sales. It also tempts disappointment. And so, the Curious Theatre Company’s production of the second work of that trilogy comes with a super-sized build-up. 6666

mythic drama

A ferociously present trio of actors and longtime company member Dee Covington’s empathetic yet volatile direction won’t dispel all skeptics of critical bluster, but “The Brothers Size” is indeed a remarkable piece of theater. This one-act work is a slightly expanded version of the second installment of McCraney’s trilogy “The Brother/Sister Plays,” about denizens of a bayou project. With a nod to its Louisiana setting, McCraney has stirred a gumbo of West African spirituality, music and percussive movement to create a tale more fable than fact. McCraney gives his modern-day menfolk the names of West African Yoruba deities. Ogun (Cajardo Lindsey), named for the deity of iron, hunting, war and politics, has forged a mechanic business out of hardship. Damion Hoover glides onto stage as

“the brothers size.” A Curious Theatre Company production. Directed by Dee Covington. Written by Tarell Alvin McCraney. Featuring Laurence Curry, Damion Hoover and Cajardo Lindsey. Through April 13 at Curious Theatre, 1080 Acoma St. 8 p.m. Thursdays-Saturdays; 2 p.m. Sundays (excluding Easter Sunday). Tickets, $18-$44, via curioustheatre.org or 303-623-0524.

Elegba, the slick, cool, grinning trickster. He befriended Ogun’s wayward younger brother, Oshoosi (Laurence Curry), in prison. Just released, Oshoosi bears the name of the deity of the forest. Curious artistic director Chip Walton steps in as c0-scenic designer. He and lighting/scenic designer Shannon McKinney tag-teamed to create an aptly evocative set in which vertical pipes suggest a thicket on the scrim at the back of the stage but also cast shadows that hint at prison. A shovel wielded by Ogun hits and scrapes the stage, evoking long-ago chain-gang rhythms. A scene later finds Ogun, Oshoosi and Elegba performing stomps and claps rooted in African tradition and known in the U.S. as stepping or step-dance. Ogun is thick, powerful, but short of fuse the way an older sibling might be when he too early assumes the responsibility for a sibling. Oshoosi is

irresponsible. His response to Ogun rousting him out of bed for work: “Death kills the lazy last.” “The Brothers Size” finds Oshoosi lost in a thicket of his own making. He’s pulled in criminal directions by Elegba, badgered toward some version of maturity by Ogun. One of the most powerful scenes has Elegba quietly insinuating himself at the back of the stage during the brothers’ most intimate moment. Their typically cagey relationship gives way to reminiscence about what happened when their mother died, why their aunt so disliked them. It ends with an amazing and moving rendition of Otis Redding’s “Try a Little Tenderness.” And then the

spell of fondness is broken. This is the swamp of conflicted emotion found in “The Brothers Size.” It’s dank, dark, worth wading into. And now a brief PSA that must be taken as the one caveat of this fourstar work. From Chaucer to Bessie Smith, Jay-Z to Quentin Tarantino, plenty of artists have been able to wrestle art out of the coarse, the furious, the vulgar. “The Brothers Size” has a glut of N-words and F-bombs. No stranger to words that go by their initial letter in polite company, this nevertheless strikes me as an artistic miscalculation. It even robs one of the more powerful scenes late in the play of

Detroit’s infamous 1967 riots haunt lovely “Tell Martha” By Lisa Kennedy Denver Post Theater Critic

Theater openings Germinal Stage-Denver’s “The Duck Variations” Through April 7: This 1972 play by David Mamet has two elderly men sitting on a park bench watching ducks. Their dialogue examines ducks, law, friendship and death. The irony is that the men really know nothing about ducks. 2450 W. 44th Ave., 303-455-7108 or germinalstage.com

Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center’s “Knuffle Bunny: A Cautionary Musical”

Arvada Center’s “Man of La Mancha” Opening Tuesday through April 14: The classic musical tells of the failed playwright Miguel de Cervantes who has been thrown into a dungeon to await trial by the Inquisition for an offense against the Catholic Church. Before a kangaroo court of his fellow prisoners, he defends his life by enacting his latest novel, the one about the impossible dreamer, “Don Quixote,” and his impossible love, Dulcinea. 6901 Wadsworth Blvd., 720-898-7200 or arvadacenter.org

What follows is an often beautifully performed tale of loss and resilience — and the ongoing costs of each. The world premiere of “Martha” provides just one more reason to head to the Aurora Fox Arts Center, where it is the centerpiece of the Athena Project Festival at the Studio Theatre through March 31. Detroit’s 1967 conflagration was ignited when police raided an unlicensed after-hours bar on 12th Street and arrested 82 patrons, many of whom were celebrating the return of two Vietnam soldiers. When the five-day civil disturbance ended, 43 had been killed, more than 2,500 businesses had been destroyed and more than 7,200 people were arrested. In the play, Martha and Leroy’s son, Daniel, was among the dead. Seemingly modest, this production exerts a potent effect. Director Melissa McCarl (author of the Frida Kahlo play “Painted Bread”) skirts melodrama without sacrificing tenderness. If the title makes you wonder, Martha (Adrienne Martin-Fullwood) has reason to moan. Daniel’s not the only child the couple buried. Yet it’s Leroy who begins seeing their dead son, played by Martell Harding. As the loving couple, Martin and Russell Costen offer sweet scenes from a marriage that has endured more than its share of loss. Her staff, she’d tell you, is Jesus. His might best be characterized as

Through March 31: Based on the picture book by Emmy Award-winner Mo Willems, this new musical tells the story of a girl who loves her stuffed animal. When she loses it at a giant, dancing Laundromat, she fights to get it back. The composer is Grammy-winning Michael Silversher. In the studio theater, 30 W. Dale St., 719-634-5583 or csfineartscenter.org

Clinnesha Sibley’s drama “Tell Martha Not to Moan” opens with octogenarians Martha and Leroy readying to attend the 40th commemoration of the 1967 Detroit riots. She’s humming spirituals and topping off her Sunday finest with a brand-new hat. He’s dragging his feet, harrumphing and, in a bit of a running joke, visiting the bathroom to no avail. 6665

fresh force. If this is done in the name of authenticity, why in a play rife with potent mythic and dream-work gestures? If it’s supposed to remind us of the violence coursing through the characters’ lives, that’s been done. The language of the street is not always artful; sometimes it’s just alienating for audiences poised to listen anew. As promised, McCraney is a playwright to reckon with. Curious introduces him with severe power. Let’s hope we see them take him on again.

Boulder Ensemble Theatre Company’s “The Other Place” Through April 7: Dr. Juliana Smithton has it all together: career, family, fame. But just as her research leads to a potential breakthrough, her life takes a disorienting turn. A regional premiere by Sharr White. At the Dairy Center for the Arts, 2590 Walnut St., Boulder, 303-440-7826 or boulderensembletheatre.org

And Toto Too’s “Pardon My Dust” Through April 6: Denver’s only company dedicated to female playwrights opens its eighth season with this regional premiere by Anne Welsbacher. Dorothy Parker, one of the greatest wits of the 20th century, is in limbo, and has a lot of baggage to shed before moving on to the next phase of her journey. Starring Billie McBride.

Magic Moments’ “Spirit and Soul” Tommy (Don Randle) and Cassie (Kathi Wood) portray younger people with memories of their own about the 40th anniversary of the Detroit riots. good-natured sarcasm. And Costen is especially winning at playing a reformed rascal. For instance, Martha sees providence in the fact that one of the attendees expected at the commemoration is presidential candidate Barack Obama. “My hopes ain’t hopes anymore,” she chirps. “They’re aspirations.” “Whatever they are, don’t get ’em up,” he replies. It’s the kind of verbal minuet the two execute with affectionate frequency. Of course the Pattersons aren’t the only ones bound to their city’s incendiary past. Their caregiver, Cassie (Kathi Wood), was Daniel’s girlfriend. Best friend Tommy (Don Randle in a muscular turn) is now a

Detroit police officer. Anyone familiar with Martha and Leroy’s generation of black middleclass homeowners might worry set designer Jeff Jesmer got it wrong. Their living room is in muted disarray. As a sign of her wise temperament, playwright Sibley takes her time offering a reason. It’s not the only one, but it’s a sorrowful one. And then there’s the added sense Martha and Leroy’s home represents the wounded hopes of Detroit itself. Lisa Kennedy: 303-954-1567, lkennedy@denverpost.com or twitter.com/bylisakennedy

“tell martha not to moan.” An Athena Project Festival production. Written by Clinnesha Sibley. Directed by Melissa McCarl.

The cast is made up of nearly 200 performers. At the Anschutz Family Theatre at Kent Denver School, 4000 E. Quincy Ave., Englewood, 303-607-7555 or magicmomentsinc.org

conventions can be debilitating. Players need to focus more on issues of play such as inference. Today’s West led the deuce of hearts against 3NT, and South put up dummy’s king. East took the ace and returned the ten: jack, queen. West then led a third heart, and declarer gratefully claimed 10 tricks: a heart, four diamonds and five clubs. “How could I find a spade shift from my A-Q-2?” West wondered. “To continue hearts seemed clear.” West missed an inference. South’s play of the king of hearts betrayed desperation. South could make sure of a heart trick if instead dummy played low. His actual play could mean only that he was afraid of a shift, which could only be to spades. So when West

takes the queen of hearts, he should lead the ace and queen of spades. Never take your play skills for granted. I believe the standard of play even among experts has declined lately. Daily Question: You hold: & 9 7 4 h K 8 3 ( A J 4 2 $ Q 4 3. Your partner opens one heart, and the next player passes. What do you say? Answer: In theory, the hand may exceed the range for a raise to two hearts, which promises six to nine points. In practice, many experts would settle for the single raise, and I agree. The hand has negative features that include sterile distribution and a lack of intermediate spot cards. Nothing is wrong with having a bit of extra strength occasionally.

Horoscope by Jacqueline Bigar Today’s birthday (Friday, March 22, 2013) This year you will kick back and enjoy yourself more.

Ask Amy by Amy Dickinson Dear Amy: My brother and his wife announced right after Christmas that they were getting a divorce. The split was ... not the greatest (he cheated). They are able to communicate occasionally now, but they are far from friends. My sister-in-law has become a good friend of mine and was supposed to be a bridesmaid in my wedding. Now she is no longer going to be a bridesmaid. I have spoken to my brother about my intention to still have her come to the wedding as a guest if she’s willing, and he has said he is totally fine with this. Now my brother has told the

family that he has someone new in his life who he thinks is going to be around for a long time. My fiance and I haven’t sent the wedding invitations out yet, but I’m not inclined to invite the new girlfriend. However, if they are going to be serious, I don’t want to start off another possible family relationship on the wrong foot. If I do invite her, I know my sister-in-law would not come, and that would make me sad. I haven’t talked about this

LUANN by Greg Evans

to any of the family yet, but I wanted to see what you think. — Anxious Dear Anxious: I’m assum-

ing your brother’s prospective wedding date is also the woman with whom he cheated on his wife. Your sister-in-law knows that he is your brother and that to some extent you are stuck with some of the choices he makes in his life. Your brother should create an opportunity for you to meet his date well before your wed-

ding. The basic protocol is to invite people in serious and/or long-term relationships to attend your wedding along with the primary guest. You should be honest with your sister-in-law and tell her your brother is bringing a date. Encourage her to also bring a date. She may choose not to attend, due to her own discomfort, but make sure she knows that you hope to maintain a friendship with her, regardless of what your brother does. Dear Amy: My husband has been diagnosed with cancer. We have children and grandchildren to worry about. We are a family made up of individuals who need to stay

strong and fighting for my husband’s health, but the added stress of trying to make others feel better is draining. Please let people know that we need their strength and help instead of depression, pity and anxiety. My advice to others is that when you know people who are not religious are facing something like this, please don’t try to pull them into your life in that way. Pray for us as you must, but please, don’t make us feel bad because we don’t believe in that. Give your love and support without strings — because we need it. — Struggling Dear Struggling: I am so sorry your family is going

through this.Sometimes declarations from other people that they will pray for you are confusing; if you are not religious, it can seem intrusive or like an affront. Let one of your savvy grandkids set up and maintain a web page, e-mail chain or (phone tree) where you can easily update people — if you want to. I highly recommend caringbridge.org as a great resource. Send questions via e-mail to askamy@tribune.com or write to Ask Amy, Chicago Tribune, TT500, 435 N. Michigan Ave., Chicago, IL 60611.

Comic Demetri Martin shows his 2-D side By John Wenzel The Denver Post

Few people would accuse Demetri Martin of having a wide emotional range. The 39-year-old New Yorker, now exiled in the entertainment mecca of Los Angeles, has carved out a singular spot in the comedy world with dry wisecracks and an exceedingly calm stage presence, at once hip and childlike, philosophical and simple. But there’s a different side of Martin on display in his latest book, “Point Your Face at This,” a 288-page compendium of Martin’s black-andwhite line drawings that are, miraculously, as funny and idea-rich as his critically acclaimed stand-up act. “I’m not a fine artist or anything,” said Martin, a former “Late Night with Conan O’Brien” writer and “Daily Show” correspondent. “I just like drawing a lot, and I put drawings in my comedy because I do them all the time.” They may be cocktail napkin-quality, but Martin’s cartoonish doodles have been a pillar of his act for years, as integral to his deliberately constructed persona as his Steve Wrightesque one-liners and absurd songs. They also betray sides of Martin rarely seen in his stand-up act, which he will perform in two rare club shows at Comedy Works South on Sunday, followed by book signings. But there’s a reason for that. “I don’t like topical material, so there’s definitely an absence of political stuff on stage,” Martin said. “Not on any moral or philosophical grounds, but because I find it doesn’t age as well.” When it comes to the dearth of more intimate, emotional material in his act, Martin says that’s simply because he chose to show a certain side of himself to American audiences — albeit not his only side. Starting in 2002, Martin wrote and performed four one-man shows that won him top honors at festivals, from Scotland to Australia and Aspen’s U.S. Comedy Arts Festival. “Those four were really personal, and I told stories and talked about my (Greek-American) family and relationships,” Martin said. “But I only did them a few times, so overseas I’m thought of as more of a storyteller who also has some audio-visual stuff like drawings and songs. Over here it’s for one-liners. But I enjoy the portability of those

JUSTIN «FROM 1C You,” and their elitist shunning of me and the former boy-bander.) But I’ve also had Timberlake’s brand new material in my head since seeing him on Saturday. It took that experience for me to understand the complexities of “Suit & Tie,” the new pop-soul single that revels in formalwear and looking fly for your partner. “Pusher Love Girl” has been ringing in my head, too, as if it were on repeat. After SXSW, I returned to Denver with JT’s songs embedded in my brain and the knowledge that I’d missed some of his comings and goings of the last week. And so I looked up his many performances from Jimmy Fallon’s show, and it all started coming back to me — the way he glides across the stage, the confident manner of his falsetto, his band’s good-times grins and their thoroughly modern compositions of songs, old and new. I posted the links (search “Timberlake” on heyreverb.com) to my Facebook, admitting that Justin Timberlake’s lauded performance from Justin Timberlake’s new release’s “The 20/20 Experience” is the best record of 2013 s0 far.

one-liners.” Like director Wes Anderson, Martin has been accused of being overly cute and maddeningly docile in his aesthetics. But like the director of “Rushmore” and “The Royal Tenenbaums,” Martin is also a one-stop creative shop, constructing his own world with a particular tone and set of rules. To wit: “Point Your Face at This” is

SXSW 2013 left a larger impression than Jack White’s lauded performance from SXSW 2012; it was on social media where I found more like-minded fans who had also been soaking in the rays of Timberlake’s recent work. On the drive to work earlier this week, I listened as NPR critic Ken Tucker carefully talked about Timberlake’s new release. The respected critic was enthusiastic about it, but it seemed as if he didn’t want to come right out and sing its praises. He was steadied when talking about its potential success, and props to Tucker for keeping his cool. ’Cos I’m about to lose mine. JT’s “The 20/20 Experience” is the best record of 2013, so far. And granted that we’re only a quarter of the way into the year, don’t be surprised when it’s still dominating the national conversation nine months from now. Will “Suit & Tie” still be that omnipresent earworm? That or another song from “20/20.” And that excitement — of falling in love with another song, another beat, another nuance — is what fandom is all about. Ricardo Baca: 303-954-1394, rbaca@denverpost.com or twitter.com/bruvs

part of a three-book deal Martin signed with Grand Central Publishing. He’s preparing his third book, a collection of literary short stories, for a 2015 release and adapting the story “Sheila” (from his first book, 2011’s “This is a Book”) into a screenplay that he hopes to direct. He also created and ran the polarizing sketch-variety show “Important Things with Demetri Martin” on Comedy Central

for two seasons from 2009-2010. Martin has benefited lately from ignoring the press generated by his projects, including his 2012 TV special and live album, the plainly titled “Demetri Martin: Standup Comedian.” “My first rule after I did my TV series was, ‘OK, no more reading reviews of myself.’ I haven’t typed my name into Google in 3 1/2 years,” Mar-

tin said. “That’s helped a lot, even just as a person.” Martin has always loved toying with language and symbols, so his one-liner comedy is in no danger of going away. It remains his Internetready shield, a form of humor perfect for Twitter and podcasts. His parallel love of filmmaking and writing, however, is an emotional save haven for a different side of his creativity. “The Internet seems kelvin-cold, I mean arctic,” Martin said. “It’s why I want to write films and make films, because that still seems like there’s some warmth there. You can still do something that’s vulnerable.” John Wenzel: 303-954-1642, jwenzel@denverpost.com or twitter.com/johntwenzel

TELEVISION «FROM 1C boast ruggedly good-looking heroes with strong individualistic, anti-authoritarian streaks that lead them to pursue justice outside the lines, locking up slimeballs and fiends while cracking wise with their racially/ethnically diverse colleagues. You know the drill beat by beat: A body discovered. A killer on the loose, a crime to be solved, a strange matter of corruption to be shut down. Round up the team. And issue a callback to viewers about a nagging personal investment for our driven crime fighter that hovers in the background of every case. Inside that impenetrable shell beats the heart of a vulnerable/lonely/grieving hero. Before the second commercial, we’re given a viable misdirect: the writers, good magicians, say, “Hey, look over here! What about this subplot?” Maybe we should be

suspicious of an entirely new development rather than that uncertain character only briefly glimpsed in the opening act? The stronger the misdirection the better, making us more curious as we learn that clue was a red herring. If this is “Hawaii Five-O” there will be bathing suits. If it’s “Elementary” there will be pithy banter. If this is “NCIS” (20 million viewers a week!), “NCIS: LA” (17 million) or “Criminal Minds” (10 million), there will be body parts. If this is “The Mentalist” (9 million viewers), piercing blue eyes may substitute for actual dialogue. Normally, a B story will concern a personal relationship of one of the investigators, introducing a guest star to complicate, distract and somehow reflect the chagrin of the group. (Synopsis of a recent “Golden Boy”: Owen takes the lead on a murder investigation involving the brother of his slain criminal informant. Meanwhile, Clark struggles with whether or not to let his recently sober mother, played by

“30something’s” Polly Draper, back into his life.) By the second half, we’re ready for the big chase. “Hawaii Five-O” wins for spectacular scenery and big SUVs. On “Golden Boy,” which is drawing an amazing 10 million viewers in its first season, the chase sequence may slingshot back in time. On “Bones,” the chase may be skipped in favor of a banter-rich dash inside the building. And if this is “Person of Interest,” the chase likely will be on foot, through the city. So many twists, so many false leads. But our heroes have persistence, ready fists and loyal computer geeks back at the office feeding them vital data. Amazing how omniscient and deadline-oriented these assistants can be. They may seem predictable, but it’s tougher than it looks to reinvent the story every week without altering the formula.
