100s of parole errors found A TRIO OF TROUBLES

President Barack Obama seemed to lose control of his second-term agenda even before he was sworn in, when a school massacre led him to lift gun control to the fore. Now, as he tries to pivot from a stinging defeat on that issue and push forward on others, the president finds himself rocked by multiple controversies that are demoralizing his allies and emboldening his political opponents. It’s unclear how long he will be dogged by inquiries into last year’s deadly attack in Libya, the IRS targeting of Tea Party groups and now the seizure of Associated Press phone records in an investigation into a leak.




Many conservatives stayed focused on the attack last September in Benghazi, Libya, that killed four Americans, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens. Republicans have spent the past eight months accusing the Obama administration of ignoring security needs before the attack and of revising subsequent “talking points” to play down the role of Islamic terrorists in the assault, which occurred at the height of Obama’s re-election campaign. »18A

The Justice Department is investigating the Internal Revenue Service for targeting Tea Party groups for extra scrutiny when they applied for tax-exempt status. Ineffective management at the IRS allowed agents to improperly target Tea Party groups for more than 18 moths, concluded one investigation by the Treasury inspector general. The report does not indicate that Washington initiated the targeting of conservative groups. »17A

The government obtained the records from April and May 2012 for more than 20 separate telephone lines used by The Associated Press and its journalists, including main offices. Federal officials have said investigators are trying to hunt down the sources of information for a May 7, 2012, AP story that disclosed details of a CIA operation in Yemen to stop an airliner bomb plot around the anniversary of the killing of Osama bin Laden. »21A

Judges are reviewing cases so they can decide who should be returned to – or kept in – prison. By Christopher N. Osher The Denver Post

Corrections officials are alerting judges throughout Colorado that errors appear to have resulted in early, improper prison-release dates for hundreds of prisoners they sentenced. The judges are reviewing the case files so they can decide which of those already released from incarceration should be returned to prison to serve out the longer sentences required by state law. Other cases involve prisoners on the verge of release but who may now see their sentences extended. These are early results of an audit still underway by the Colorado Department of Corrections. Gov. John Hickenlooper ordered the department to conduct the audit after it was disclosed that a parolee who is believed to have murdered a pizza-delivery driver and the state corrections chief was released from prison early because of a clerical error. So far, the audit has found “serious questions” in the sentences of 349 individuals either already released from prison or scheduled for release, corrections officials said. Of those, judges have amended sentences in 56 cases. The errors occurred for a variety of reasons. In some cases, judicial clerks may have given incorrect sentences to the corrections department. In others, corrections officials may have interpreted sentences incorrectly. A full breakdown is not yet available on how AUDIT » 7A

Safety panel urges states to reduce BAC limit to 0.05% By Denver Post staff and wire services

Two Colorado Tea Party groups suspect being targeted by IRS The Colorado Tea Party Patriots and the Western Slope Conservative Alliance have yet to receive 501(c)4 status. By Allison Sherry The Denver Post

washington» At least two Colorado Tea Party groups believe they were caught up in a politically targeted campaign by the Internal Revenue Service to make it hard for small, conservative groups to incorporate as tax-exempt organizations. The Western Slope Conservative Alliance

and the Colorado Tea Party Patriots applied for 501(c)4 — a nonprofit, “social welfare” — status in 2010 and, more than two years later, both groups are waiting for official permission to operate under the tax code. Under this special (c)4 status, organizations are explicitly prohibited from engaging in political campaigns but are able to “promote social welfare … in some way for the common good and general welfare for the

people,” according to the tax code. Grand Junction’s Western Slope Conservative Alliance says it has gone back and forth with the IRS since 2010, answering pages of questions about the organization’s website and its board makeup. The alliance was also asked to provide detailed agendas for every meeting and all the printed materials it distributed. The organization’s chair, Kevin McCarney, called the combination of the inquiries burdensome. “They were fishing for answers,” McCarPOLITICS » 11A

States should cut their threshold for drunken driving by nearly half — from .08 percent blood-alcohol content to .05 — matching a standard that has substantially reduced highway deaths in other countries, a federal safety board recommended Tuesday. That’s about one drink for a woman weighing less than 120 pounds and two for a 160pound man. More than 100 countries have adopted the .05 standard or lower, according to a report by the staff of the National Transportation Safety Board. In Europe, the share of traffic deaths attributable to drunken driving was reduced by more than half within 10 years after the standard was reduced, the report said. NTSB officials said it wasn’t their intention to prevent drivers from having a glass of wine with dinner, but they acknowledged that with a threshDUI » 8A

Hickenlooper signs five new child welfare laws

Service dropped for light rail

By Anthony Cotton The Denver Post

University of Colorado president Bruce Benson wants to cut through the red tape when hiring a new head of fundraising. “You can do all the processes you want — I’m not into processes. I’m into getting things done,” Benson said. In a special meeting Wednesday, he’ll ask the Board of Regents for permission to deviate from standard search procedures when hiring Benson someone to lead the school’s revamped fundraising programs. “We need to get going. We’re moving people already. We need to have the structure in place. We need to have the manager. We need to hire the people who are going to be on the campuses,” he said. The 139 employees who work for the CU Foundation, a separate, nonprofit entity, will become university employees in July, and a new leader will be hired to oversee the reorganized approach. A review found that CU lags behind its peers when it comes to tapping into its 372,608 alumni, and Benson wants to make changes. The existing process calls for a search committee to be formed, with representatives from all aspects of university life, including students and faculty. Benson dispensed with that process recently when he hired Don Elliman last spring as the chancellor at the university’s Denver campus. For the fundraising leadership hire, Benson said he, his chief of staff and the chancellors from CU’s four campuses would conduct the search. “We’re the guys who have to work with this person, not 20 other people,” Benson said. Melinda Piket-May, the chair of CU’s faculty council, said in an e-mail that “it is an area that concerns us, but the president has been openly communicating with us on the issues.” Anthony Cotton: 303-954-1292, or

Bus riders on west side want RTD express lines By Monte Whaley The Denver Post

jefferson county» Some long-time Regional Transportation District customers are angry that their express bus service was dumped in favor of the newly opened W light rail line. Their concerns will be voiced Wednesday night at a public meeting called by RTD board member Natalie Menten, who is urging a strong lobbying effort to get at least some of the old lines re-instated. “There is a lot of confusion and frustration out there,” said Menten, adding several petitions are being circulated among riders. “This has affected not only express service riders but other services beyond that.” The meeting is scheduled for Wednesday at 6 p.m. at the Clements Community Center, 1580 Yarrow St., in Lakewood. The W Line opened April 26, connecting downtown Denver, Lakewood and Golden via more than 12 miles of light rail. With the W Line’s debut, however, RTD officials decided to close six express bus routes that operated on the west side. One was the 100X, which Shari Janata

took from her Lakewood home to her job in downtown Denver for five years. Janata now has to take a bus to the Federal Center Station in Lakwood where she waits for another bus to get to Denver. The replacement buses are often overcrowded and add more time to commutes, said Janata, who has gathered petition signatures in hopes of persuading the RTD board to bring back the express buses. “I think RTD is a lot more worried about drawing new customers rather than taking care of people who have ridden with them for 30 years,” Janata said. One of the eliminated express routes — the 116X — will be coming back on May 28 in “response to extensive feedback,” RTD said. The agency will listen to customers who want their old routes back, said RTD spokesman Scott Reed. “We are looking at impacts on people’s commute times and to see if it makes sense to reinstate any routes.” Monte Whaley: 720-929-0907, or

Gov. John Hickenlooper on Tuesday signed five bills to improve Colorado’s child welfare system into law. Lawmakers, child welfare advocates and experts joined the governor in the West Foyer for the bill-signing. The five child welfare bills Hickenlooper signed on Tuesday are: • House Bill 1259 allows courts to order domestic evaluations when determining child placement and parenting time. Courts will follow certain procedures to ensure that the best interests of the child are met when cases involve allegations of child abuse or neglect and suspected domestic violence. • House Bill 1271 creates a statewide hotline to report child abuse and neglect, and an intensified training program for workers who screen abuse and neglect calls. • Senate Bill 220 adds emergency medical providers to the list of people required to report suspected child abuse or neglect. • Senate Bill 231 allows county child welfare departments to file a Title IV-E waiver. The waiver gives departments more flexibility to obtain and use funds that before were typically used for cases in which children were placed out of their homes. • Senate Bill 255 requires that every preventable child fatality in the state, ranging from homicides to accidents, undergo a case-specific review by either the Colorado Department of Human Services or the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment.

Temperature at DIA ties record high for date

Charges unlikely in accidental shooting

State trooper on leave after sex allegations

Man arrested; details sought in I-25 incident

Inmate charged in attack from 12 years ago

Temperatures in northeastern Colorado were above norms Tuesday as Denver tied a record high for the day. The temperature at Denver International climbed to 87 degrees at 1:53 p.m. Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service. The record of 87 degrees was set in 1996. A high of 82 was reported in Colorado Springs and 91 in Pueblo . The normal high temperature for the day in Denver is 71 degrees, according to the weather service. Skies over the city were expected to become mostly cloudy overnight. The overnight low temperature should be about 49 degrees. Wednesday’s weather in Denver should be partly sunny and calm, with a high temperature near 76.

Police say a high school employee who accidentally shot a student in the leg Monday likely won’t face criminal charges. The Aurora Sentinel reports that the unnamed employee at Rangeview High School has been placed on administrative leave. Police and school officials haven’t released the employee’s name, saying only that he wasn’t a teacher or one of the district’s armed security officers. Police say the student, who is an adult, was significantly injured but is expected to survive. Police said the school employee knew the student and was giving him a ride home. The employee tried to put his gun into the glove box when it discharged, hitting the student in the leg.

A Colorado state trooper on the job for less than six months has been placed on paid leave while he faces accusations that he had unlawful sexual contact with a woman while offduty. Lakewood police on Tuesday issued Trooper William Metzler, 49, a summons to appear in court on charges of unlawful sexual contact and harassment stemming from the April incident. Police offered few details about the case except to describe it as “inappropriate sexual contact” with an adult woman while Metzler was offduty, according to a news release. Metzler graduated from the Colorado State Patrol’s academy in December.

The Weld County Sheriff’s Office is looking for information on an apparent road rage incident Monday on Interstate 25 near the Johnstown exit, the Greeley Tribune reports. A witness told deputies that about 4 p.m., a man in a gray 2004 Toyota Land Cruiser pointed a handgun at a female driver in a white Volkswagen Beetle. The female driver was apparently unaware of the incident, according to the sheriff’s office release. Deputies stopped what they believe to be the suspect vehicle and arrested its driver, Kamaljit Ghuman, of Centennial. The Volkswagen Beetle had Wyoming license plates. Anyone with information on the incident may call 970-356-4015, extension 2825.

A man already serving time for carjacking a pregnant mother has been charged in another brutal attack on a woman at a northwest Denver bus stop more than 12 years ago. Denver police detectives used DNA evidence to connect Dony Salazar, 30, to the rape and kidnapping, which happened Dec. 16, 2000, as the woman was waiting at a bus stop near West 38th Avenue and Tejon Street, according to an arrest affidavit released Tuesday. The woman at that time told police a man grabbed her by her neck, shoved a black handgun into her side and told her in Spanish, “If you don’t walk, I’ll kill you. If you scream, I’ll kill you.”

Working on upgrade for grads Competitors Hope to Shine at Auditions for Reality Shows

The state board of education will consider adopting guidelines that hinge on competency in four core areas. By Kevin Simpson The Denver Post

America’s love affair with the car is waning, replaced by a new generation’s obsession with technology and different ways of getting around, says a new report by the Colorado Public Interest Research Group Foundation. The report — produced with the Frontier Group and released Tuesday — claims this waning interest in cars and trucks means policymakers must set new priorities for spending transportation dollars. Both organizations have strong environmental leanings. They say that Americans drive fewer total miles today than they did eight years ago. And the unique combination of conditions that fueled the post-World War II driving boom — such as cheap gas and the rapid expansion of the workforce during the babyboom generation — no longer exists. Millennials — people born between 1983 and 2000 — are taking over, and they drove 23 percent fewer miles on average in 2009 than they did in 2001. They are more likely to want to live in urban and walkable neighborhoods and are more open to “nondriving” forms of transportation than older Americans, he said. It cites a 2011 survey done by computer networking company Cisco. The survey said two out of three college students would choose an Internet connection over access to a car. BBB

Feathers in their cap By Jordan Steffen The Denver Post

Thousands will come — armed with everything from a lucky song to a favorite pair of sneakers — but only a few will move one step closer to becoming the next ultimate athlete or superstar performer. Athletes, singers, acrobats and everything in between have begun to arrive in Denver this week, hoping to earn a chance to shine on reality TV shows. Traffic was stalled Tuesday morning as thousands made their way to the Denver Coliseum to audition for Fox’s talent show “X Factor.” A few miles south, Civic Center was being transformed into an obstacle course designed to test the agility and strength of competitors hoping to appear on NBC’s summer series “American Ninja Warrior.” While waiting for the doors of the Denver Coliseum to open Tuesday, some performers sang the lyrics to Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believing,” as others swayed in line, silent and nervous. Some waited for more than four hours before the doors opened. William Mariano, 23, joined the line about 6:30 a.m. To show the judges he is a versatile performer, the concert pianist said he would sing “You Should Give Me Something,” by English singersongwriter James Morrison. “I’ve been waiting in the sun for so long, I’m not even nervous anymore,” Mariano said. “I feel like I’m waiting in line for the iPhone 5 again.” The crowd cheered as the doors opened, and they filed into the arena. Anyone who makes it past Tuesday’s auditions will face several more qualifying rounds before appearing on the show. In downtown Denver, crews in Civic Center continued to build the “American Ninja Warrior” obstacle course, which resembles a giant mouse trap. During qualifying rounds, starting at 8 p.m.Sunday, ultimate athletes will be timed as they move through what NBC calls the “most daunting athletic challenge.” To qualify for a spot to compete in

New statewide graduation guidelines that hinge on competency, rather than “seat time,” could be adopted Wednesday by the state board of education, although even supporters expect considerable push-back against a move five years in the works. An advisory council has been crafting minimum standards in four core subjects that would be required to graduate from Colorado high schools — baselines that could be achieved through a variety of standardized test scores or other means. If the council’s proposal is adopted, the guidelines would be phased in over for seven years, a delay that would give students entering middle school a clear vision of expectations on the way to a diploma. “I don’t think there’s anything more important in the state of Colorado today than these guidelines,” said advisory council member Bill Kurtz, CEO of DSST Public Schools, a high-performing Denver charter network. “When you don’t set the right bar, you don’t get the right outcomes. When you set the right bar, usually people rise to the occasion to meet those expectations.” The effort to develop the new guidelines grew out of 2007 legislation that also resulted in creation of the advisory council. When Colorado decided to revamp its academic standards in 2008, the guideline process was put on hold until last June, when the council reconvened and held more than 40 meetings across the state. Currently, students amass credits based on required classes they’ve taken — so-called “seat time” that assumes they’ve absorbed the material. The new standards create a menu of evaluations in English, math, science and social studies on which students must show at least a minimum level of competence. Kurtz noted that, rather than impose a single state test for graduation readiness, these proposed guidelines offer multiple ways to satisfy requirements SCHOOLS » 6A

Denver DA’s rate of refusal to prosecute felonies is high Mitch Morrissey, of the Denver District Attorney’s office, says he has to have a reasonable likelihood of conviction before filing a case: “It’s on a case-by-case basis.” By Arthur Kane and Keli Rabon 7News

The Denver District Attorney’s office declines to prosecute 36 percent of all felonies and 71 percent of all felony sex assaults that Denver police bring to prosecutors, the CALL7 Investigators found. Those refusal rates are substantially higher than those of seven other Front Range judicial districts and several similar jurisdictions around the United States that the CALL7 Investigators surveyed. “It says to the victim, we don’t give a damn,” said Kris Miccio, a former New York City prosecutor and legal director of the Center for Battered Women’s Legal Services. “I know I’m using harsh language, but this is a harsh situation.” Miccio, who has handled sexual-assault cases, is a professor of law at the University of Denver Sturm College of Law. Denver DA Mitch Morrissey said statistics and comparisons to other jurisdictions are not useful in assessing prosecution. “We don’t do it based on statistics,” he said. “It’s on a case-by-case basis.” But Morrissey, who would not discuss specific cases, said he has to have a reasonable likelihood of conviction FELONIES » 6A

Ranger who poached deer not ďŹ red The Parks and Wildlife employee was issued an $11,000 fine, demoted and then transferred. By Ryan Parker The Denver Post

A Colorado Parks and Wildlife ranger was fined and demoted, but not terminated, for using artificial light while poaching a trophy mule deer after legal hunting hours last October. Rick Cables, director of Colorado Parks and Wildlife, told The Denver Post on Tuesday the punishment for the incident was adequate but acknowl-

edged some employees who were unhappy the ranger wasn’t fired. Last October, Travis McKay, a park ranger of the Trinidad Lake State Park, was cited for poaching a trophy mule deer after hunting hours while using artificial light, according to incident report. The wildlife officer who stopped McKay originally congratulated him on the kill, but noticed the deer wasn’t tagged, the report states. McKay originally lied to the wildlife officer about what time the animal had been shot, but the man’s phone, which had a text message about the kill, showed it was killed after

hours, according to the report. McKay finally admitted to poaching the deer and was issued a fine of more than $11,000, most of which stemmed from the deer being a trophy animal. “The officer (McKay) did a rotten thing and made a big mistake,� Cables said. In addition to paying the fine, McKay was stripped of his law enforcement status and took a pay cut when he was transferred to the Cheery Creek State Park as a park technician, Cables said. “We changed this individual’s life with these actions,� Cables said. “We feel the actions were appropriate.� While McKay made “a big

mistake,� stopped poaching

Boy faces adult charges in bomb plot By Mitchell Byars The Daily Camera

A 16-year-old boy accused of placing an explosive device in Centaurus High School in Lafayette on Monday morning may be charged as an adult, Boulder County District Attorney Stan Garnett said. “Anything involving the threat of violence or explosives at a school building or involving school children will always be a top priority for my office,� Garnett said. “We’re going to ask for extra time to review the charges, and one of the reasons is we want to know who this young man is and what happened and what the factors may have been.� The teen was arrested Monday night at his parents’ home, where police say they found evidence linking him to the device found at the school, according to Lafayette Police chief Rick Bashor.

He could face charges including two counts of possession of incendiary materials, felony menacing and interfering with an educational institution. The teen is being held in juvenile detention and scheduled to appear in juvenile court Wednesday. Bashor did not comment on any possible motive but said he believes the school is not at risk. “The evidence we found indicates the students are safe, and the teachers are safe.� Police described the device as “very similar to a pipe bomb.� It was found inside the school by a teacher, who took it outside. The device was detonated by the Boulder County bomb squad away from the school. Bashor said while police don’t encourage people to handle explosive devices, the unidentified teacher acted on his or her instincts.

“They thought it was the best thing for the students,� Bashor said.

It’s your time to shine! Presenting the Mommy Makeover Geoffrey Kim, M.D


An Outstanding “Mommy Makeover� Doctor.

Dartmouth-educated plastic surgeon Dr. Geoffrey Kim performs the “Mommy Makeoverâ€? for women wanting both a Tummy Tuck and Breast Augmentation. Many women experience loose skin or skin which has lost its elasticity in the abdomen after childbirth. They lose the volume in their breasts, and experience sagging after pregnancy and breast-feeding. These changes cannot be corrected with any diet, or any exercise routine. For many women, this affects their conďŹ dence and self-esteem. The “Mommy Makeoverâ€? involves two procedures. First, the breast enhancement surgery is for small, sagging or asymmetrical breasts. Breast Augmentation can be combined with a breast lift to correct your particular concern. Secondly, a Tummy Tuck is performed to remove the excess skin and fat from the lower abdomen, as well as tightening the muscles, to help make the tummy atter and the waist narrower. These two procedures can be done very safely, at the same time, and generally does not require an overnight stay. You have one recovery period rather than two.

Man who stole Summit County bus with passengers on board pleads guilty

SCHOOLS «FROM 4A that he termed “quite generous.” In English, for instance, a high school student could meet the standards by attaining a certain “cut score” on the state’s TCAP test, achieving an ACT score of 18, earning a 3 or higher on an International Baccalaureate or Advanced Placement exam, or getting a grade of Cminus or better on a concurrent enrollment college course — among other measures. Proponents expect that representatives of higher education will push for graduation standards that more closely follow college admission requirements. They also say the state policy of “local control” will surface when the state board addresses the issue in the Wednesday afternoon session of its meeting at the Colorado Department of Education. Although the standards are called “guidelines,” individual districts would have to meet or exceed them in order to graduate students. And that’s a sticking point for some critics, including the Colorado Association of School Boards. “They don’t do much guiding, but they do a lot of mandating,” said Jane Urschel, CASB’s deputy executive director. Urschel said she’ll suggest putting off a vote and creating a timeline for rulemaking that will give districts more opportunity for input. While even advocates of the proposed requirements acknowledge that they’re far from perfect, they consider them a huge step forward that should be taken without further delay. Van Schoales, CEO of reformminded A+ Denver, urged quick action because of the enormous pressure on school districts to raise graduation rates. He’s concerned that districts will look for easy fixes, such as credit-recovery programs, to improve their graduation numbers — and that those measures could shortchange students. “The most tragic piece of this is that there are so many kids saying, ‘Maybe I’m short, but I show up to credit recovery, I pump out a few credits and I’m good to go,’ ” he said. “And they think this is a diploma that means something — when, in fact, it’s not that meaningful.”


Mock stole a Summit Stage bus on Feb. 28 when the driver left the vehicle, unattended and running, to take a bathroom break. Victims on the bus told investigators they were taken on an “erratic” ride by a “weird guy.” The bus slid off Montezuma Road and got stuck. The driver calmly got off and walked away. Mock, on foot, was picked up by deputies about a half-mile down the road. When contacted, Mock told deputies: “A crazy guy stole a bus … he’s wearing a mask like me.”

By Kieran Nicholson The Denver Post

A man who stole a bus, with passengers on board, in Summit County has pleaded guilty in the case, according to prosecutors. Joshua Taylor Mock, 23, entered guilty pleas Monday in court in Breckenridge, according to a Summit County District Attorney’s Office media release. Mock pleaded guilty to motor vehicle theft-aggravated, false imprisonment, both felonies, and reckless endangerment, a misdemeanor.



Mock added, according to the release: “I hope you catch the guy.” A bond hearing has been scheduled for May 30. His sentencing is scheduled for June 13. Mock faces up to nine years in prison on the felony charges. He is being held at the Summit County Jail on $10,000 bail. Kieran Nicholson: 303-954-1822, or

The 18th Judicial District, including Arapahoe and Douglas counties, refused the most, at 11.5 percent. Both are still well below Denver’s refusal rate for all felonies. Only Denver and Jefferson counties could break felony sexassault data out of all felonies. Jefferson County declined 29 percent of sex assaults. Other district attorneys around the country have prosecution rates that are higher than Denver but lower than most other Colorado judicial districts. Prosecutors in King County, which includes Seattle, reject 47.5 percent of sex assaults and 21.4 percent of all felonies. In Hennepin County, which includes Minneapolis, prosecutors reject 31.4 percent of all felonies and 57.6 percent of sex assaults. Morrissey said his office has a process where if a sex-assault case is declined, another prosecutor must review the case and sign off on it. “We are not going to lower the ethical standards of this office because you have some statistics that I haven’t seen, haven’t been able to analyze and determine if someone is using a different standard, but we’re not going to change that standard,” he said.

AUDIT «FROM 1A the errors occurred. The audit, still in the preliminary stages, is not expected to be finished until July. The state has identified 8,415 individuals whose sentences need reviews, with at least 2,500 warranting a more intensive look. About a fifth of the intensive reviews have been completed. If the current error rate continues, “serious” sentencing flaws could be detected in the cases of more than 1,000 individuals. “I think it would be logical to be concerned,” said Roger Werholtz, the interim executive director of the Colorado Department of Corrections. “There is always the potential for someone to go out and harm citizens of the community, and that’s what we do our best to minimize.” He added that the public should take some reassurance in the fact that recidivism statistics indicate most of the offenders released early are unlikely to harm others, but he cautioned, “I cannot promise certainty.” Corrections officials say many of the problems detected by the audit may prove difficult to fix — for instance, when the sentencing judge has retired or

died. Prisoners who entered into plea agreements also could be shielded from changes to their sentences. Werholtz said the large number of sentencing errors detected doesn’t surprise him. “Here’s the reality: Sentencing laws are so complex,” he said. “It is not unusual to find errors in how sentences are communicated from courts to the state.” He said he wants to wait for the audit to be finished so that patterns can be detected before deciding what can be done to minimize such problems in the future.

Clerical error Corrections officials have been poring over thousands of records as they try to determine whether other prisoners have sentencing issues similar to those in the case of Evan Ebel. Ebel, the man suspected of killing corrections chief Tom Clements on March 19, was released from prison about four years early because of a clerical error. Ebel also is suspected in the March 17 slaying of pizza-delivery driver Nathan Leon. Ebel was fatally wounded in a shootout with Texas officials March 21. Ebel in 2006 hit a guard and was sentenced in 2008 to four years in addition to the eight

years he already was serving. Because of a clerical error, Ebel didn’t serve a day of the sentence for hitting the guard because the order was changed from consecutive to “concurrent.” State law requires that when a prisoner is convicted of assaulting a guard, the prisoner’s sentence is to be served consecutively to any other sentences the prisoner already is serving. To determine other sentencing discrepancies, the audit is reviewing sentences of 8,415 individuals who were either convicted of assaulting guards or of any of 13 other classes of convictions that similarly require consecutive sentences under state law, such as participating in a prison riot or stalking.

been imposed when necessary. So far, judges have sent instructions back to corrections officials on about 362 cases they have reviewed and have decided against amending the sentences in 250, or 69 percent, of those cases. Sentences have been altered in 56 of the cases, and decisions are still pending in another 56 cases. The audit is not reviewing cases in which an individual already has completely discharged their sentence, meaning they have served their prison sentence and the entirety of their parole. The audit also is not reviewing cases in which a judge had the discretion to order a consecutive or concurrent sentence. It is reviewing only those

sentences in which consecutive sentences should have been mandatory. About 11 of those individuals whose sentences have been identified as inappropriate are on parole status but can’t be located.

Case details Corrections officials released details on a handful of cases to show how the process is working. Robert Bonnet, 52, of Westminster, who was convicted in 2008 of theft and assault charges, was picked up by parole officials over the weekend and incarcerated in a county jail, so his situation could be reviewed by the parole board after his sentence was changed by a


judge. He had been granted parole earlier this month. The parole board decided he could remain on parole under a discretionary release since he had been exhibiting good behavior while on parole. Paul Manriquez, 45, sentenced in 2008 on theft and escape charges, was paroled in November to El Paso County. The parole board sent him back to prison after his sentence was corrected, deciding he had not had a good history while on parole and should not have been granted what would have amounted to a discretionary release. Christopher N. Osher: 303-9541747, or

Serious issues So far, 349 of the individuals reviewed had issues serious enough to require that an alert be sent to judges. Often, those individuals had multiple cases, sometimes in more than one sentencing jurisdiction, so alerts have been sent to judges in 558 cases. Judges still are in the process of sending back instructions to the corrections department on how they want to handle those cases. Corrections officials will review those instructions and start alerting prisoners and parolees that new sentences have

Denver school board to vote Thursday By Zahira Torres The Denver Post

Board members for Denver Public Schools are scheduled to vote on a nearly $811 million proposed general fund budget Thursday that raises per pupil funding and puts money into training and staff to address discipline concerns. The proposed budget sets per-student spending at $7,045, a $187 increase from last year. But even with the increase, perstudent funding remains about $600 below the $7,672 available in the 2009-10 fiscal year. DPS Superintendent Tom Boasberg said state and federal funding cuts over the years have left the district searching

for ways to make ends meet. “That’s something like $50 million less districtwide than we were getting four years ago, and four years ago we were already one of the 10 worst-funded states in the country for K-12 education,” Boasberg said. The budget proposal would also set aside $4.5 million over three years to train staff and hire counselors, psychologists and social workers in an effort to curb discipline troubles at the school district. About $1.5 million will be allocated in the 2013-14 budget. The money was freed up after the school district refinanced millions of dollars in bonds to switch from a variable interest rate to a fixed interest rate. By

way Safety Association, which represents state highway safety offices. “It was very difficult to get .08 in most states, so lowering it again won’t be popular,” Adkins said. “The focus in the states is on high (BAC) offenders as well

old as low as .05, the safest thing for people who have only one or two drinks is not to drive at all. In most studies, a drink is defined as 12 ounces of beer, 4 ounces of wine or 1 ounce of 80proof alcohol. Colorado law already forbids driving at .05 or more — an offense called “driving while ability impaired,” or DWAI, which carries a penalty of eight points against a 12-point maximum that leads to loss of driving privileges. The state’s drivingunder-the-influence law puts the BAC level at .08. “It probably wouldn’t create more cases, but it could create more convictions,” said Tom Raynes, director of Colorado District Attorneys’ Council. Now, people are automatically guilty of DUI if their bloodalcohol content is .08 or above. Most of those cases are pleaded down to a DWAI offense. That would no longer be possible if the law is revised.

Current standard Mothers Against Drunk Driving said its position on BAC remains unchanged. The national organization several years ago pushed for the lowering of limits to .08 from .10 and hasn’t pushed for further lowering. Instead, MADD is pushing for more states to adopt penalties such as those in Colorado — requiring specific convicted offenders to have a ignition interlock device that is attached to a car and checks a person’s breath before allowing the car to be started. “We’re not opposed to what the NTSB has proposed,” said J.T. Griffin, senior vice president for public policy at MADD. “We are kind of neutral. We feel that our campaign has the potential to save the most amount of lives.” David Reitz, director of Tavern League of Colorado, said the lowering of the level could be disastrous for his industry. “For an on-premise place, that would keep people from drinking,” he said. “People are going to be afraid. I think it would have a very dramatic effect. Sales would be reduced significantly.” The current standard was established a decade ago at the instigation of Congress, and progress has stalled, the board said, with about 10,000 fatalities a year. “There are at least 10,000 reasons to tackle this issue,” said board chairwoman Deborah A.P. Hersman. The BAC recommendation faces opposition. Sarah Longwell, the managing director at the American Beverage Institute, a restaurant trade association, called the idea “ludicrous.” “Moving from .08 to .05 would criminalize perfectly responsible behavior,” she said, adding that further restrictions would do “nothing to stop hardcore drunk drivers from getting behind the wheel.” People with a BAC level of .05 are 38 percent more likely to be involved in a crash than those who have not been drinking, according to government statistics. People with a BAC level of .08 are 169 percent more likely. All 50 states and the District of Columbia switched to .08 after President Bill Clinton signed a law in 2000 that withheld highway construction money from states that did not agree to that standard.

Preventing deaths A study by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has estimated that 7,082 deaths would have been prevented in 2010 if all drivers on the road had BAC levels below .08 percent. The lower threshold was one of nearly 20 recommendations made by the board, including that states adopt measures to ensure more widespread use of use of alcohol ignition interlock devices. Those require a driver to breathe into a tube, much like the breathalyzers police ask suspected drunken drivers to use. An alcohol concentration threshold of .05 is likely to meet strong resistance from states, said Jonathan Adkins, an official with the Governors High-

as repeat offenders.” The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which sets national safety policy, stopped short of endorsing the board’s recommendation. “NHTSA is always interested


in reviewing new approaches that could reduce the number of drunk drivers on the road, and will work with any state that chooses to implement a .05 BAC law to gather further information on that approach,” the agency said in a statement.

By Ryan Parker The Denver Post

Denver police fatally shot a man who was waving a handgun in the air and holding it to his head when officers arrived on scene Tuesday evening. The shooting took place after 6:30 p.m. in the 2600 block of South Federal Boulevard. The man was taken to a local hospital, where he was declared dead. “I heard them yelling commands at him, and then I heard a loud ‘bang,’ ” said Mike Gorby, a neighborhood resident. Police said they were called to the scene after 6:30 p.m. after a report of a suicidal person. Upon arriving, they found a man who was threatening Denver firefighters with a gun, said police spokeswoman Raquel Lopez. The firefighters had originally arrived in response to a call of an overdose, at about 5:30 p.m., police said. Michael Blowe, a witness, captured the incident on video. “It looked like he was trying to get away,” he said. Police fired beanbags at the man, and that is when he turned to run, Blowe said. “That is when they shot him for real,” he said. Lopez said she would not comment on the active investigation. South Federal Boulevard was closed at West Vassar Avenue, as well as between West Yale and West Harvard avenues, during the investigation.

sudden of abuses by the government,” Thomson said. Rep. Cory Gardner, R-Yuma, asked Tuesday that the IRS hand over the number of Colorado groups affected by the burdensome questions. “The revelation that the IRS targeted groups based on their



political beliefs is deeply troubling,” Gardner said. “We want to make sure that the IRS owns up to all instances of discrimination and breaches of privacy.”

Colorado officials react

On Capitol Hill Tuesday, Congressional members and government watchdogs decried the federal government for its deliberate targeting of conservative groups with “tea party” in their titles when they applied for tax-exempt status. “I am appalled by this heavyhanded abuse of power by the IRS attempt to silence the voice of free speech and democracy,” said Rep. Scott Tipton, R-Cortez. “It is deplorable whether aimed at conservative groups, liberal groups or any other group that’s trying to express their point of view fully within the scope of the law.” The Treasury Department’s Inspector General issued a report that found that for more than 18 months, starting in 2010, the IRS developed “inappropriate criteria” to specifically targeted these conservative groups. The IRS has launched a criminal investigation. Tipton and Rep. Doug Lamborn, R-Colorado Springs, were among a group of more than 60 House Republicans who expressed concern in March 2012 that the IRS was unfairly creating burdensome questionnaires for Tea Party and liberty groups in Colorado. At the time, IRS officials were awash in applications from new groups applying for the (c)4 tax-exempt status. IRS Commissioner Steven Miller said Tuesday that applications for 501(c)4 status “more than doubled from 1,591 to 3,398 between 2010 and 2012.”

Karl Rove highlighted

Sen. Michael Bennet, a Democrat, weighed in to Commissioner Miller last year from the other political perspective, encouraging the IRS do due diligence. “We urge you to protect legitimate section 501(c)4 entities by preventing non-conforming organizations that are focused on federal election activities from abusing the tax code,” Bennet, along with six other Senate Democrats, wrote in February 2012. In a press release promoting the letter to the IRS, Bennet’s office called out “long-time partisan operative Karl Rove,” who is the founder of American Crossroads, which has multiple statuses, including (c)4, under the tax code. “It’s common knowledge that his organization exists to elect and defeat specific political candidates,” the news release said. “Elections operations such as Mr. Rove’s should not be allowed to masquerade as charities to take advantage of their tax exempt status.” Bennet’s spokesman Adam Bozzi said Tuesday the senator “believes that targeting any people or organizations based on political ideology is wrong. He’s glad the chairman has called for an investigation in the Finance Committee and looks forward to getting more information through that process.” Bozzi added: “It is also important that we don’t lose sight of the underlying issue that political organizations do not masquerade as social welfare organizations and take advantage of the tax-exempt status that comes with it. The review of those organizations must be conducted without any bias or partisanship.”

The Denver-based Colorado Tea Party Patriots applied for tax-exempt, 501(c)4 status in late 2010. The group, which is run by Regina Thomson, collects less than $10,000 a year in private contributions to operate, and mostly holds seminars and rallies about voter and constitutional issues, she said. Thomson says that 22 months after the original application, the IRS asked for additional information from the Tea Party Patriots, including “any and all” materials being published by the group and a detailed list of past, present and future activities.

Boulder to mull 8th sister city By The Daily Camera

boulder The Boulder City Council will hold a special meeting June 10 to decide whether Boulder should enter into a sister-city relationship with Nablus in the Palestinian territories. City Council members wanted to set a special meeting because they expect a large number of people will want to talk about the proposal. Regular City Council meetings, which take place Tuesdays, often continue until 11 p.m. or later, and they didn’t want to talk about the potentially contentious issue on the same agenda with other business. Backers of the sister-city relationship say it will provide a valuable opportunity for people in Boulder to learn about the daily lives of Palestinians.

Just four other American cities have sister-city relationships with Palestinian cities. Some Jewish groups and individuals in Boulder have expressed concern about the pro-

posal. Boulder has seven other sister cities: Dushanbe, Tajikistan; Jalapa, Nicaragua; Kisumu, Kenya; Lhasa, Tibet; Mante, Mexico; Yamagata, Japan; and Yateras, Cuba.

Aurora foreclosure halted A federal judge formally stopped the auction of a woman’s house, leaving unanswered a constitutionality issue. By David Migoya The Denver Post

Associated Press file


A federal judge Tuesday formally stopped the foreclosure auction of an Aurora woman’s house, leaving unanswered whether he can determine whether a part of Colorado’s foreclosure laws is unconstitutional. While U.S. District Judge William J. Martínez’s order enjoins U.S. Bank, the trustee on Lisa Kay Brumfiel’s mortgage, from seeking a public-trustee foreclosure, it doesn’t stop the bank from pursuing her house the old-fashioned way — via a lawsuit in state court. The bank conceded to the injunction late Monday because, lawyers said in a court filing, it had already closed the foreclosure case it filed against Brumfiel with the Arapahoe County public trustee’s office more than 18 months ago. Additionally, the bank said it has requested a state judge to rescind his order to sell the house.

Although U.S. Bank said it would never again seek a publictrustee foreclosure against Brumfiel’s house — essentially rendering her federal lawsuit moot — Martínez did not dismiss her complaint outright, because the state judge hasn’t ruled yet. That means the question of Brumfiel whether Brumfiel’s constitutional right to due process — guaranteed by the 14th Amendment — is violated remains on the table for now. But that can change. Martínez also allowed two advocacy groups — the Colorado Center on Law and Policy and the Colorado Progressive Coalition — to file briefs regarding the constitutionality issue. Brumfiel, 43, has been battling the case without a lawyer, choosing to work part-time to do so. She said she has been unable to make a payment on her note since losing her job in 2011, and she filed bankruptcy last year. Although Martínez’s order prevents U.S. Bank from foreclosing on Brumfiel’s house via the public trustee, it doesn’t stop a county-level lawsuit to

do the same thing, known as a judicial foreclosure. Most Colorado foreclosures occur via a county public trustee, a process in place for more than 100 years, because it’s a quicker and less expensive alternative to a lawsuit. A judicial foreclosure accomplishes the same thing, although most banks and lenders don’t go that route. The most common judicial foreclosure in Colorado is filed by homeowners associations. A foreclosure via public trustee requires a short court hearing that’s seldom held, in which a judge decides whether the homeowner has defaulted on their loan and is not in the military before ordering a property to be auctioned. Known as a Rule 120 hearing, lenders can prove their right to take a house with just a lawyer’s signature and a copy of the loan without having to provide the original. It was that law Brumfiel challenged, saying banks should have to produce original documents and proof of how they obtained them. In a judicial foreclosure, known as a Rule 105 hearing, lenders are required to produce the documents and the proof they have the right, or standing, to sue.

new york» U.S. airlines collected more than $6 billion in baggage and reservation change fees from passengers last year — the highest amount since the fees became common five years ago. Passengers shouldn’t expect a break anytime soon. Those fees — along with extra charges for boarding early or picking prime seats — have helped return the industry to profitability. The nation’s 15 largest carriers collected a combined $3.5 billion in bag fees in 2012, up 3.8 percent from 2011, according to the Bureau of Transportation Statistics. Fees for changing a reservation totaled $2.6 billion, up 7.3 percent. The airlines took in $159.5 billion in revenue last year and had expenses of $153.6 billion, according to the government. That 3.7 percent profit margin comes entirely from baggage and change fees. Delta Air Lines once again took in the most fees — $865.9 million from baggage alone — but it also carried more passengers than any other airline. The Associated Press BBB

MOLSON COORS UPBEAT ON CENTRAL EUROPE BIZ prague» Denver-based brewer Molson Coors sees growing sales of premium beers in central Europe as a bright spot amid stagnant Western markets struggling to lift customer sentiment. CEO Peter Swinburn said consumer markets overall and, by proxy, the beer sector in the United States and Europe may have hit the bottom, but there was no clear upward path. “Our view is in all of our markets, it will improve but will improve gradually, and that improvement will not be a steady upward path. It will be lumpy,” he told Reuters. The maker of Carling and Coors Lite said sales of Staropramen, a premium beer it acquired with the purchase of the central European StarBev group last year, were growing by double-digit percentage points in regional markets outside the Czech Republic. “This is a good story going forward. The premium category here is still less than 5 percent of the total beer,” he said. Reuters BBB

Colorado districts program is tasked with improving quality of place by fostering creative activities that define community, engage public By Aldo Svaldi The Denver Post

Associated Press file

WIRELESS CARRIERS JOIN IN NO TEXT-DRIVE AD BLITZ The country’s largest wireless carriers have joined together for a national advertising campaign to discourage mobile users from texting while driving. AT&T announced that competitors Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile and more than 200 other organizations have joined its “It Can Wait” campaign. The effort will focus on the months between Memorial Day and Labor Day, which have been called the 100 deadliest days for teen drivers. The campaign kicks off Monday, with the four wireless carriers bringing a multimillion-dollar, co-branded advertising blitz to raise awareness of the dangers of texting while driving. The companies are encouraging people to take a pledge against the practice at The campaign will focus on the stories of people who are living with the consequences of texting while driving.

Margaret Hunt, who started as executive director of Colorado Creative Industries last month, has the task of improving the state’s “quality of place.” Demographer Richard Florida, in his book “The Rise of the Cultural Class,” makes the argument that communities with a vibrant cultural scene draw a higher concentration of creative workers and perform better economically. “People are not just drawn to a quality of life but a quality of place,” Florida said in a speech before the South Metro Denver Chamber of Commerce this month. Colorado ranks sixth among U.S. states for its concentration of creative workers, Florida said. And the new Colorado Creative Districts Program is tasked with improving the corollary quality of place by fostering creative activities that define a community and engage the public. “Colorado has a bigger tent of embracing the for-profit with the nonprofit,” said Hunt, who previously headed the Utah Division of Arts and Museums since 2005 and also has worked in community and economic development. CCI falls under the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade, reflecting the emphasis that the state places on creative industries as an economic driver. Creative Districts, once certified, can receive up to $25,000 for three years from the Boettcher Foundation, provided they raise a similar amount from other sources.

Districts need to reflect the local community, include public gathering places, and provide living and work spaces for creative types. The program goes beyond traditional arts organizations to include architects, restaurateurs, specialty retailers and others who help define a community’s identity. The Art District on Santa Fe and Salida Creative District were the first two programs certified, and another dozen are in the pipeline. “Colorado became aware that there was a real need to nurture and support these districts,” said Jack Pappalardo, president of the Art District on Santa Fe. Art-gallery owners escaping the rising rents of Lower Downtown formed the Santa Fe district a decade ago. It has since grown beyond the visual arts and theater into a haven for music promoters, architects and others, he said. Commercial development has also become part of the mix, with a project in the works to provide affordable housing and work space for creative artists, Pappalardo said. CCI administers the program, approves certifications and provides technical support to the districts, with an emphasis on building up management expertise. Longmont, Ridgway, Pueblo, Telluride and the River North neighborhood in Denver are among the prospective districts seeking certification this year. Aldo Svaldi: 303-954-1410, asvaldi@ or

Roll those dice.

By Steve Rothwell The Associated Press

new york» The stock market marched back into record territory as investors seized on the latest encouraging news about the economy. On Tuesday, it was a report on the health of small businesses. Small-business owners were slightly more optimistic in April, according to a survey by the National Federation of Independent Business. That helped push the Russell 2000, an index of smallcompany stocks, up 1.3 percent, ahead of other major indexes. “Small businesses are in many ways the backbone of the economy. ... To see that index move up was a positive surprise,” said Prudential Financial market strategist Quincy Krosby. “Overall, the market wants to move higher, and it’s hard to fight that.” The Russell index is 16.1 percent higher since the start of the year and is up more than the Standard & Poor’s 500 index, which includes larger, global companies. The advance in small-company stocks is another sign of how optimistic investors have become. Smaller stocks are more risky than large ones, but they offer investors the prospect of greater returns. Another closely watched stock market indicator has also been on a tear: transportation stocks. The Dow Transportion average rose 1.9 percent Tuesday and is up 21.8 percent this year, far more than other major indexes. Investors often see these stocks as an indication of where the economy is going. The thinking goes that when companies make and ship more goods, then truckers,

The S&P 500 index rose 16.57 points, or 1 percent, to 1,650.34. The Nasdaq composite index rose 23.82 points, or 0.7 percent, to 3,462.61. The Dow has gained for 18 straight Tuesdays. The only day with a longer streak of consecutive gains is Wednesday, with 24 back in 1968, according to Schaeffer’s Investment Research. May has been a strong month for the market. The S&P has risen eight of the past nine days, the Russell and Dow Transportation average have risen seven. The prospect of continued stimulus from the Federal Reserve has also supported the market’s run-up. For stock investors, the U.S. economy is “not too hot, not too cold,” said Michael Sheldon, chief market strategist at RDM Financial. It’s weak enough that the Fed will continue its $85 billion-amonth economic stimulus program, but strong enough for companies to generate healthy earnings.

brussels» European Union governments want to shift the cost of rescuing troubled banks from taxpayers to the banks’ creditors — including the holders of large deposits— as part the region’s plan to shore up its shaky financial system. Finance ministers from the 27-country bloc meeting in Brussels on Tuesday sought to hammer out the new rules on how to fund bank rescues, but their discussions showed that they were still far apart from agreeing the technicalities underpinning the project to build a Europe-wide banking union. That plan is key to strengthening the financial sector and avoid a repeat of the crisis. “This is at the moment the biggest project for Europe,” said Dutch Finance Minister Jeroen Dijsselbloem. “It’s absolutely important to get it right.” The bloc should move swiftly and get all elements of the banking union running by 2015, well before the initial deadline of 2018, said Dijsselbloem, who also chairs the meetings of the 17-country eurozone’s finance ministers. Tuesday’s meeting focused on establishing a hierarchy of which bank creditors have to take losses in case the bank needs rescuing — to be involved in a “bail-in.” The ministers mostly agreed that banks’ shareholders and capital must take the first hit. After that, the pecking order becomes less clear.

CU redevelopment changes hands Houston-based Lionsgate is in negotiations to acquire the old Health Sciences Center – the fourth entity to take control. By Steve Raabe and Anthony Cotton The Denver Post

Redevelopment control of the old University of Colorado Health Sciences Center has changed hands, marking the fourth new regime for the campus in nine years. Houston-based real-estate investor

Lionstone Group now is negotiating to acquire the property from CU and launch redevelopment of the 28-acre east Denver site. The property has been vacant since the hospital and health-sciences complex moved to Fitzsimons in Aurora in 2007. Redevelopment of the former Denver campus at East Ninth Avenue and Colorado Boulevard has been a recurring focus of controversy, first over a proposal for a Walmart store and more recently when King Soopers said it was withdrawing as a proposed anchor tenant. Yet-unrealized plans call for devel-

opment of a mixed-use project with housing, restaurants and retailers. Lionstone Group said Tuesday that it took control over a purchase-andsale contract for the property in mid2012. That status had not been publicly announced previously. Prior to Lionstone’s disclosure that it assumed the contract, Lionstone had been described as the financier behind developer Fuqua Development, headed by Jeff Fuqua. Before Fuqua, Sembler Co. and, starting in 2004, Shea Properties had been negotiating to acquire the property. Lionstone in a statement Tuesday

said an agreement for Fuqua to perform development services “has been terminated at this time.” Change in prospective control of the property left officials with CU and the city of Denver uncertain over when the campus redevelopment can finally be launched. “(Jeff) Fuqua brought in Lionstone to be his financial partner; now Fuqua is out, and now Lionstone is taking over, and they’re bringing in another outfit to do some apartments,” University of Colorado president Bruce Benson said Monday. “It just goes on and on. It’s a never-ending saga.”

Oil boom in U.S., Canada is changing global trade By Jonathan Fahey The Associated Press


new york» The surge in oil production in the U.S. and Canada and shrinking oil consumption in the developed world is transforming the global oil market. The threat of chronic oil shortages is all but gone, U.S. dependence on Middle Eastern oil will continue to dwindle and oil will increasingly flow to the developing economies of Asia, according to a five-year outlook published Tuesday by the International Energy Agency. The changes will have “significant consequences for the global economy and oil security,” the IEA says. The report paints a picture of a world with plenty of oil to meet modestly growing demand. Where the oil is originating and where it is going are changing dramatically, according to the IEA, an energy security and research organization based in Paris that serves 28 oil-importing countries, including the U.S. The report does not address oil prices directly, but analysts do not expect the changing oil market dynamics to lead to sharply lower oil or gasoline prices. The abundance of oil does, however, greatly reduce the risk of sustained price surges that curtail economic growth. The chief impetus for the changing world oil picture is the increase in production in the U.S. U.S. production reached 7.4 million barrels per day early this month, 48 percent higher than the average production in 2008 and the highest it has been since February 1992. The IEA expects U.S. production to reach 9.1 million barrels per day by 2018. The U.S. last produced that much oil in 1972.

Oil slides as IEA sees U.S. output rising • new york» The price of oil slid by nearly $1 a barrel Tuesday as the International Energy Agency raised its forecast for U.S. oil production while cutting its prediction for global crude demand. Benchmark oil for June delivery dropped 96 cents to close at $94.21 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange. Oil has declined $2.41 a barrel over the past four trading sessions. The loss came after IEA said rising U.S. oil output will be the key source of new supplies over the next five years. “The supply shock created by a surge in North American oil production will be as transformative to the market over the next five years as was the rise of Chinese demand over the last 15,” the IEA said. The Associated Press Production is also projected to rise in Canada and elsewhere in the Americas, such as Brazil and Columbia. At the same time, oil demand in the U.S. and other developed nations is expected to fall slightly, a result of improved vehicle efficiency and weak economic growth. That means the U.S. will be able to satisfy most of its own needs with domestic production and oil from neighbors — and that could have geopolitical implications. “It will affect relationships between countries. Most leaders believe they have to be nice to whoever they buy their oil from,” says Michael Levi, an energy expert at the Council on Foreign Relations.

U.S. Senate agriculture committee approves massive five-year farm legislation By Mary Clare Jalonick The Associated Press

washington» The Senate Agriculture Committee on Tuesday approved a massive five-year farm bill that would cut spending while also creating new subsidies for farmers. The legislation, approved 15-5, includes concessions to Southern rice and peanut farmers, thanks to a new top Republican on the committee, Mississippi Sen. Thad Cochran. The bill eliminates $5 billion in annual subsidies, called direct payments, that are important to those Southern farmers but makes it easier for them to receive alternate subsidies if prices dip. The Senate bill calls for a total of roughly $2.4 billion a year

Tri-State: Veto bill on co-ops The bill that is either a push to boost renewable energy on Colorado’s plains and mountains or part of “a war on rural Colorado” now sits on Gov. John Hickenlooper’s desk. The key issue is whether the bill’s mandate for rural electricity cooperatives to provide 20 percent of their electricity from renewable sources places a financial burden on ranchers, farmers and small towns. The bill limits rate impacts to no more than a 2 percent increase in electric bills. “There is a lot of concern. … The cost can’t be controlled to 2 percent,” Hickenlooper said in an interview Thursday. “The co-op controls this,” Hickenlooper said. If there is a problem, it would appear to be with the co-ops, not the state, the governor said. “That’s why we haven’t made a decision.” On Tuesday, Hickenlooper met with Ken Anderson, chief executive of Tri-State Generation and Transmission Association, “to hear exactly, specifically about the 2 percent.” Tri-State provides electricity to 18 Colorado co-ops. “We shared with the governor why we believe the bill is unworkable and worthy of a veto,” spokesman Lee Boughey said in a statement after the meeting. In 2007, the co-ops agreed to a standard of 10 percent renewable power by 2020. The bill doubles that to 20 percent by 2020. “The short implementation time frame doesn’t allow sufficient time to construct required infrastructure, and the cost protections for rural consumers are unclear,” Boughey said. Senate President John Morse, D-Colorado Springs, a sponsor of the bill, said the cost issue is being overblown. “Two percent means 2 percent,” Morse said. “It comes to about $11 million a year for Tri-State. It’s whatever they can do. There is no penalty for not meeting the standard.” Tri-State, which has already built two wind farms and a solar plant, may need no more than another 200 megawatts of wind to comply, according to an analysis by Bill Midcap, renewableenergy director for the Rocky Mountain Farmers Union, a Denver-based nonprofit. “Tri-State may be crying wolf a bit,” Midcap said. Is it a war on rural Colorado? “They are trying to paint it that way,” Hickenlooper said. “But there are two sides to the story.” “We went and looked at all the rural co-ops of our surrounding states and all the states with renewable goals. After this, we become about average, right about in the middle,” Hickenlooper said. “Right now, we are about the lowest.”

Denver City Council President Mary Beth Susman said city officials are “not sure of Fuqua’s and Lionstone’s relationship status, as we’ve heard a couple of versions, (for example) that Fuqua Development will be a fee developer or a consultant to Lionstone.” Susman said her sense is that Lionstone has “perseverance” and that she is optimistic that the deal to transfer the property’s deed from CU will be completed and development can begin soon.

in cuts, while a House version to be considered Wednesday would save $4 billion out of almost $100 billion annually. Those cuts include more than $600 million in yearly savings from across-the-board cuts that took effect earlier this year. Much of the savings in the House and Senate bills comes from eliminating the direct payments, which are frequently criticized because they aren’t tied to production or crop prices. Republican Sen. Pat Roberts of Kansas, the top Republican on the committee in the last session of Congress, criticized the higher subsidies for Southern farmers. “I simply don’t know how to justify a program that pays producers more than the cost of production and essen-

tially becomes nothing more than another income-transfer

program, not a risk-management tool,” Roberts said.

Denver International Airport earned several high rankings among U.S. airports in some of the industry’s most prestigious categories, but the survey reveals U.S. airports still struggle to outshine their international counterparts. In the 2013 Skytrax World Airport Awards, DIA was voted the third-best airport in North America, fifth on the list of the “World’s Best Domestic Airports” and runner-up in the “Best Regional Airports in North America.” The worldwide quality survey is based on more than 12 million airline customers of more than 100 nationalities. The passengers ranked the airports on 39 criteria. In this survey, a domestic airport is one where the primary passenger numbers a composed of domestic travelers instead of international customers. And while DIA officials are boasting that the facility has been named one of the top 10 airports in the world, there is a caveat. DIA finishes ninth on the list of “World’s Best Airports” — but only when the list is broken down by size. DIA made the top-10 list for airports with more than 50 million passengers annually — the survey’s largest airport category — but garnered an overall ranking of 36th on the more comprehensive “World’s Top 100 Airports” list. Nonetheless, this year’s 36th-place rank is an improvement over last year’s 44th. Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport is the only U.S. airport to outrank DIA, at 30th on the “World’s Top 100 Airports” list. These results, released last month, were referenced by President Barack Obama on April 30: “There was a recent survey of the top airports … in the world, and there was not a single U.S. airport that came in the top 25.” According to Angela Gittens, director general of Airports Council International, there are several factors that may hinder U.S. airports from achieving the highest marks. “Major international hubs in the U.S. are sometimes hampered by long immigration and security queues which would hurt their rankings in comparison to an airport with primarily domestic service such as Cincinnati,” Gittens said in a statement. “The same problems hinder the rankings of U.S. airports compared to the newer airports in Asia where the national governments see their airports as key assets for their economic vitality and strive to make the visitors’ journey through the airport as smooth as possible.” Kristen Leigh Painter: 303-954-1638, or

NATION & WORLD SENATORS GET TOUGH ON STUDENT VISAS IN IMMIGRATION BILL washington» Citing problems exposed by the Boston Marathon bombings, senators weighing amendments to a sweeping immigration bill agreed Tuesday to boost security provisions around student visas. The Senate Judiciary Committee agreed by voice vote to an amendment by Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa meant to ensure that border patrol agents at U.S. ports of entry have access to information on the status of student visas. The committee action follows recent revelations that Azamat Tazhayakov, a student from Kazakhstan accused of hiding evidence for one of the Boston bombing suspects, was allowed to return to the U.S. in January without a valid student visa. Grassley’s second amendment, also approved by voice vote, would tighten accreditation requirements for schools hosting foreign students and prohibit flight schools not certified by the Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Aviation Administration from offering student visas. Two of the Sept. 11 terrorists entered the U.S. on student visas. The action came as the Judiciary Committee met for a second day to plow through 300 amendments to a bipartisan immigration bill.

IRS faces criminal probe for targeting conservatives By Juliet Eilperin and Zachary A. Goldfarb The Washington Post

washington» Federal authorities have opened a criminal investigation of whether Internal Revenue Service employees broke the law when they targeted conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status, the latest setback for an agency that is the subject of withering bipartisan criticism and multiple congressional inquiries. Attorney General Eric Holder Jr. said Tuesday that the Justice Department and the FBI began the probe after the IRS acknowledged that it selected conservative groups with the words “tea party” and “patriot” in their names for special reviews. “We are examining the facts to see if there

were criminal violations,” Holder said. Also Tuesday, a widely anticipated report by the IRS’s watchdog described the agency’s taxexempt unit — where the screening of conservative groups occurred — as a bureaucratic mess, with some employees ignorant about tax laws, defiant of their supervisors and blind to the appearance of impropriety. The report by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration described in detail the use of “inappropriate criteria” to screen political advocacy groups. An IRS unit created a “lookout” list for organizations with keywords such as “tea party” or “patriot” in their names. Organizations faced months of delays in getting their applications approved. President Barack Obama called the report’s

findings “intolerable and inexcusable.” “Developing and using criteria that focuses on organization names and policy positions instead of the activities . . . does not promote public confidence that tax-exempt laws are being adhered to impartially,” said the report, which Inspector General J. Russell George issued. The officials subjected 296 political advocacy groups to heightened scrutiny, including 72 “tea party” groups and 13 “patriot” groups. Some of the cases have been outstanding for up to three years, encompassing two elections. The report did not find evidence that the actions were motivated by partisan interests. I Four committees in both chambers of Congress also are looking into the actions, with the first hearing scheduled for Friday.


Britain’s Prince Harry and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, right, talk as they tour areas hard hit by Superstorm Sandy last year in Seaside Heights, N. J. Andrew Mills, Reuters

PRINCE HARRY TOURS DAMAGED N.J. SHORE seaside heights, n.j.» Britain’s Prince Harry toured two New Jersey shore communities devastated by Superstorm Sandy, shaking hands with emergency personnel and construction workers before spending Tuesday afternoon in New York City at events promoting tourism, entrepreneurism and philanthropy. He even got a chance to play a little baseball with New York Yankee Mark Teixeira. In Seaside Heights, where the MTV reality show “Jersey Shore” was made, Harry and his tour guide, Gov. Chris Christie, took part in a game of chance along the boardwalk, throwing plastic balls into holes for prizes, which they handed over to children. The prince suggested to a girl partnered with him, Allie Cirigliano, 7, of Middletown, that she pick a blue penguin as a prize. But she didn’t want it. “Don’t listen to me,” he said with a laugh. She chose a Hello Kitty doll instead. The prince said he was impressed to see “everyone getting together and making things right.” The Associated Press BBB

“I can tell my children that they don’t need to fear they will lose me to breast cancer.” By Jocelyn Noveck The New York Times

new york» “I hope that other women can benefit from my experience,” Angelina Jolie wrote in a powerful op-ed article Tuesday, explaining her decision to go public with having her breasts removed to avoid cancer. But amid the accolades for the film star’s courageous revelation, doctors and genetic counselors were careful to note that her medical situation — an inherited genetic mutation putting her at high risk of breast and ovarian cancer — was very specific, and that her course of action made sense for only a small category of women. Still, they hailed her bravery and said that she would surely help increase awareness — and thus, perhaps, help save some lives. “Having this conversation empowers us all,” said Rebecca Nagy, a genetic counselor who works frequently with women who test positive for a defective version of the BRCA1 gene, as Jolie did. “It’s wonderful what she’s done.” In a stunning op-ed piece in the New York Times, Jolie, 37, began by speaking of her late mother, Marcheline Bertrand, who died of cancer at 56, before she was able to meet most of her grandchildren. The actress revealed that beginning in February, she underwent three surgeries — which she succeeded in keeping secret from the public — in which her breasts were removed, and later replaced by implants. “I wanted to write this to tell other women that the decision to have a mastectomy was not easy. But it is one I am

very happy that I made,” Jolie wrote. “My chances of developing breast cancer have dropped from 87 percent to under 5 percent. I can tell my children that they don’t need to fear they will lose me to breast cancer.” While admiring Jolie’s straightforwardness, cancer surgeons and others in the medical community were quick to point out that hereditary cases of breast cancer account for only about 5 percent to 7 percent of all cases diagnosed each year. And those connected to the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes are an even smaller group. And so, women shouldn’t just run off and get tested for those genes, said Dr. Robert Shenk, medical director of the Breast Center at the University Hospitals Case Medical Center in Cleveland. “My worry is that people will be inappropriately tested,” said Shenk. “Awareness is great, but people shouldn’t just run in off the street and get a test.” Instead, he said, genetic counseling, including a close review of a patient’s family history, is crucial. Nagy, the genetic counselor, who is also president of the National Society of Genetic Counselors, agreed and said women should consider what to do with the information. “It might not necessarily be surgery,” Nagy said. “It might be much more frequent screenings. Surgery isn’t right for everyone.”

Navy launches unmanned full-size craft from carrier

cairo» In the month before attackers stormed U.S. facilities in Benghazi and killed four Americans, U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens twice turned down offers of security assistance made by the senior U.S. military official in the region in response to concerns that Stevens had raised in a still-secret memorandum, two government officials told McClatchy News Service. Why Stevens, who died of smoke inhalation in the first of two attacks that took place late Sept. 11 and early Sept. 12, 2012, would turn down the offers remains unclear. The deteriorating security situation in Benghazi had been the subject of a meeting that embassy officials held Aug. 15, where they concluded they could not defend the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi. The next day, the embassy drafted a cable outlining the dire circumstances and saying it would spell out what it needed in a separate cable. Army Gen. Carter Ham, then the head of the U.S. Africa Command, read the Aug. 16 cable and phoned Stevens and asked if the embassy needed a special security team from the U.S. military. Stevens told Ham it did not, the officials said. Weeks later, Ham made the offer again and Stevens still said no.

Drone will be run by computer, and that worries rights group By Brock Vergakis The Associated Press

aboard the uss george h.w. bush» The Navy for the first time Tuesday launched an unmanned aircraft the size of a fighter jet from a warship in the Atlantic Ocean, as it wades deeper into America’s drone program amid growing concerns over the legality of its escalating surveillance and lethal strikes. The drone, called the X-47B, is considered particularly valuable because it’s the first that is designed specifically to take off and land on an aircraft carrier, allowing it to be used around the world without needing the permission of other countries to serve as a home base. There has been increasing push back against the use of drones from some nations that say the strikes cause widespread civilian deaths and operate with only limited oversight, eroding the U.S. image overseas. Navy officials say the drone will provide around-the-clock intelligence, surveillance and targeting capabilities. The X-47B took off successfully Tuesday morning and made two low approaches to the ship before heading back toward land. The test aircraft isn’t intended for operational use; instead, the military is using the information it gathers during these demonstrations to develop the drone program. Both the military and the CIA use armed Predator and Reaper drones in surveillance and strike operations around the world. The military uses them routinely in Afghanistan and other warzones, while the CIA has conducted frequent strikes in the border region of Pakistan — most often secret operations that have triggered sharp criticism from the government there.

Northrop Grumman test pilots Bruce McFadden, left, and Dave Lorenz are pictured with their arm-mounted controllers in front of the an X-47B drone. Jason Reed, Reuters The X-47B can reach an altitude of more than 40,000 feet, has a range of more than 2,100 nautical miles and can reach high subsonic speeds, according to the Navy. It is also fully autonomous in flight. It relies on computer programs to tell it where to go unless a mission operator needs to step in. That differs from other drones used by the military, which are more often piloted from remote locations. Some critics have said the military’s use of drones, furthered by Tuesday’s tests, create concerns over the development of systems that could

become weaponized and have less and less human control over launching attacks. Human Rights Watch has called for a pre-emptive prohibition of the development and use of any unmanned systems that carry weapons and are fully autonomous. “We’re saying you must have meaningful human control over key battlefield decisions of who lives and who dies. That should not be left up to the weapons system itself,” said Steve Goose, director of the arms division at Human Rights Watch.

Study questions how sharply Americans should cut the salt

Pa. abortion doctor waives appeal in deal, gets life in prison

By Lauran Neergaard The Associated Press

washington» A surprising new report questions efforts to get Americans to sharply cut back on salt, saying getting to super-low levels may not be worth the struggle. Make no mistake: Most Americans eat way too much, not just from salt shakers, but because of sodium hidden inside processed foods and restaurant meals. Tuesday’s report stresses that, overall, the nation needs to ease back on the sodium for better heart health. But there’s no good evidence that eating super-low levels — below the 2,300 milligrams a day that the government recommends for most people — offers benefits even though national guidelines urge that certain highrisk patients do just that, the Institute of Medicine concluded. Also, there are some hints, albeit from studies with serious flaws, that eating the lowest levels might actually harm certain people who already have a serious illness, the report added. The prestigious group, which advises the government about health, urged more research to find the best target range. “We’re not saying we shouldn’t be lowering excessive salt intake,” said Dr. Brian Strom of the University of Pennsylvania, who led the IOM committee. But below 2,300 milligrams a day, “there is simply a lack of data that shows it is beneficial.” The American Heart Association said it stood by its own recommendations, stricter than the government’s, that everyone eat no

more than 1,500 mg of sodium a day. Reducing salt is one key to avoiding high blood pressure that in turn leads to heart attacks and strokes, the association said. Debating how little salt is too little is a moot point, added nutritionist Bonnie Liebman of the Center for Science in the Public Interest. “The average American is still in the red zone, the danger zone,” she said. It’s very hard to cut back to 1,500 mg unless you always cook from scratch, or eat too little food in general because of illness, Liebman added.

philadelphia »A Philadelphia abortion doctor convicted of killing three babies born alive at his grimy clinic was spared a possible death sentence on Tuesday in a deal with prosecutors. Dr. Kermit Gosnell gave up his right to appeal and in exchange for a sentence of life without parole for two of the infant deaths. Gosnell, 72, was found guilty Monday of first-degree murder in a case that became a flashpoint in the nation’s abortion debate. Former clinic employees testified that Gosnell routinely performed illegal abortions past Pennsylvania’s 24-week limit, that he delivered babies who were still moving, whimpering or breathing, and that he and his assistants dispatched the newborns by “snipping” their spines, as he referred to it. Prosecutors had sought the death penalty because Gosnell killed more than one person, and his victims were especially vulnerable given their age. But Gosnell’s own advanced age had made it unlikely he would ever be executed before his appeals ran out. He faces a mandatory third life term Wednesday in the third death, when he will also be formally sentenced in the overdose death of a patient and hundreds of lesser charges. Gosnell’s lawyer, Jack McMahon, said his client accepts the verdict and isn’t sorry he went to trial. Gosnell did not testify and called no witnesses in his defense.

NUNEZ ZENDEJAS, GUADALUPE M. LUPE February19,1918toMay 11,2013 Born to Mexican immigrants, Feliciano and Josefina Marin on February 10, 1918, in Parsons, KS, Lupe was the oldest of 10 children. She is survived by her brothers Albert, Feliciano and Jesse. The family moved to Fort Collins in 1922 to begin anew. At 14 Lupe began working to help her family cope with the Depression era times. They moved to Denver in 1934. Lupe found work with the WPA in 1935 as a seamstress & continued there until WWII. Lupe & Sabino Zendejas met in 1942 and were soon wed. Her oldest daughter Mary Ellen was born in 1943. In 1945 she had her second daughter Rose Marie and later that year, opened her Restaurant, La Bonita, named after a business her father ran previously. While running La Bonita she had her remaining children, Sabino, Feliciano, Elizabeth, Richard, Vivian, Raul, Ruben & Yolanda. Sabino died in 1956. Lupe met Rodolfo G. Nuñez and they later wed. In addition to La Bonita, Rodolfo and Lupe ran La Fiesta & for a time owned the Santa Fe Theatre (now Su Teatro). From La Bonita's inception in 1945 Lupe had locations at 21st & Larimer, 15th & Arapahoe, 14th & Welton, 14th & Court Place, Colfax & Uinta and 38th & Julian. Over time, she hosted tens of thousands of clients, many dignitaries and artists that visited her restaurant. As an entrepreneur Lupe was a pioneer in the restaurant business. Her vision was to bring performers from Mexico and around the country to play at The La Bonita Supper Club. The 1st Margarita in Colorado was served at La Bonita with a recipe brought back from Mexico by her brother. It was Lupe's idea to use the large (bent) tomato can lids to shape and deep fry corn tortillas for taco shells. Also, she learned how to make burritos from the wife of a musician in a California group that she brought to Denver. Under the banner of "Mexican Food at its Best" Lupe ran La Bonita until she closed in 1999. Rodolfo and Lupe later divorced and in recent years, Lupe was accompanied by Rudy Marquez until his death in 2006. Lupe is survived by seven of her children, 23 grandchildren, 50 great-grandchildren, 20 greatgreat grandchildren and 1 great-great-great grandchild. A combined Rosary & Memorial service will be held at St. Dominic's Church on 29th & Federal Blvd. on Friday May 17th. The service will begin at 10:30 am and details of the reception to follow, will be available at the church.

SCHMIDT, WINIFRED "WINNIE" September30,1920-April 29,2013 Winifred S. (Winnie) Schmidt, 92, the embodiment of love and kindness, passed away Monday, April 29, 2013 at her home in Golden after a short illness. She was born on September 30, 1920 in Minneapolis, MN to Marcus P. and Inez Anderson Stark. She graduated from the University of Minnesota with a degree in sociology and served in the Red Cross during World War II. On December 26, 1949 Winnie married Edward W. Schmidt, Jr. He passed away March 17, 2010 after 60 years of marriage. A homemaker extraordinaire, Winnie raised 3 daughters who were all best friends. She was active in the Episcopal Church, Girl Scouts, Golden Gardeners, and Golden Vice Versa club. She also belonged to the Over the Hill Gang Ski club for older skiers. A life-long skier, hiker, biker and traveler, she learned to cross country ski at age 90. Winnie loved the outdoors, nature, and animals, especially wolves. She influenced others through her kindness, love and selflessness. At age 87, Winnie encountered a serious health challenge that ultimately gave her a new purpose and direction in her later years: she became a survivor of Stevens-Johnson Syndrome. The disease has a high fatality rate yet Winnie fought the battle with all natural remedies, positivity, determination and faith in God. Winnie not only survived, she thrived and was healthier than beforehand. This was due to her total lifestyle change to one focused strictly on natural remedies, organic food and elimination of chemicals and synthetics. In her 90's, Winnie traveled the country to tell her story, that with a foundation of whole foods and natural, chemical-free lifestyle; you can improve your health, at any age! An inspiring article and video detailing her remarkable recovery were produced and through Winnie's story, other lives have been saved. Winnie is survived by her daughters Ginny Caldwell (Richard) and Carol Schmidt; grandson Chad; granddaughter Rebecca (Casey); sisters Mary Jo Andrews and Nancy St. Clair. She was preceded in passing by her husband, Edward, her daughter, Jane, and her brothers Robert and David Stark. A celebration of Winnie's Wonderful Life will be held at Copper Mountain, Colorado on Saturday, August 3, 2013.

Russia expels diplomat for spying

Holder didn’t order but defends phone search

Denver Post wire services

moscow» Russian officials said Tuesday that they had caught a CIA officer trying to recruit a Russian counterterrorism officer to spy for the United States. They said he was detained Monday night and then released to the U.S. Embassy in Moscow and ordered to leave the country. The Federal Security Service, the successor to the Soviet-era KGB, identified the man as Ryan Christopher Fogle and said he had been “working under the guise of” a diplomat, a third secretary in the political department of the embassy. It said that when Fogle was detained, he was carrying a large amount of cash, technical devices, items to disguise his appearance and written instructions for a Russian recruit. Russia’s Foreign Ministry issued a statement calling Fogle “persona non grata” and demanding that he leave the country. It said the U.S. ambassador, Michael A. McFaul, had been summoned to appear Wednesday to explain the incident. McFaul said he would not comment on the spy allegation. The ministry made clear that it viewed the apparent U.S. clandestine effort as a serious slap in the face, after the high level of cooperation between Russia and the United States in

JOLIE «FROM 17A That’s the decision that Gabrielle Brett made — at least initially. Brett was only 23 when she tested positive for the BRCA1 gene. She had just met her future husband, James, a month earlier. She wanted to have a family, so she waited. But at age 29, her husband said she shouldn’t wait any longer. She should have her breasts removed before they had kids, even though she wouldn’t be able to nurse them. She ultimately agreed. She had the surgery and then had two children. Now 35, she is two weeks from her due date with her third. Brett woke up in the middle

the investigation of the Boston Marathon bombing. “While our two presidents reaffirmed their readiness to expand bilateral cooperation, including through intelligence agencies in the fight against international terrorism, such pro-

vocative actions in the spirit of the Cold War does not contribute to building mutual trust,” the Foreign Ministry said in its statement. In the hours after Fogle’s arrest, government-controlled media sites in Russia posted

of the night Tuesday, read about Jolie’s article on Facebook, and excitedly woke her husband. “It’s amazing to hear that someone so famous went through the same thing,” she said in a telephone interview. “It makes me realize we are all on the same journey.” And, she said, it was crucial that she was accompanied throughout her journey by “my own Brad Pitt” — her husband, who was there through every moment, as Jolie says partner Pitt was for her at the Pink Lotus Breast Center in southern California. Doctors stress that no one solution is right for everyone who tests positive. And even for those with a risky family history, it’s not necessarily always right to test right away, they say.

“You don’t necessarily want to test an 18-year-old, sending her into a panic at such a young age,” said Shenk. “You might consider that she’s unlikely to get cancer in her 20s. You would maybe test her later.” Another potential downside to the testing: the cost, which can reach $3,000, though it’s usually covered by insurance and there are programs for women who can’t afford it. Dr. Kristi Funk, founder of the Pink Lotus Center where Jolie was treated, said, “we hope that the awareness she is raising around the world will save countless lives.” Jolie’s most positive influence, some say, may be in the fact that such a glamorous woman has come forward — in great detail — to talk about how

photos of rudimentary disguises, cash and a letter full of instructions that he allegedly was using to try and recruit secret agents. The letter, written in Russian, offers up to $1 million yearly for a long-term relationship that provides good information, and includes instructions on how to open a Gmail account from an Internet cafe or coffee house. The paraphernalia — including two madcap wigs (one dark, one with blond streaks), two pairs of sunglasses, a pair of regular black-framed glasses, a cigarette lighter, a small knife with a serrated blade, a Moscow map and a compass — seemed anachronistic, experts said, and oddly reminiscent of a novelty store or “Get Smart,” the 1960s-era U.S. television series that spoofed secret agents. Aides to U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, who was in Stockholm on Tuesday to attend a conference of Arctic nations, including Russia, declined to comment on the matter. The CIA also declined to comment, as did the U.S. Embassy in Moscow. Fogle was the first American diplomat to be publicly accused of spying in Russia in about a decade. Three years ago, American officials uncovered a network of Russian sleeper spies in the United States and expelled them.

washington» Attorney General Eric Holder on Tuesday defended the Justice Department’s secret examination of Associated Press phone records though he declared he had played no role in it, saying it was justified as part of an investigation into a grave national security leak. The government obtained the records from April and May of 2012 for more than 20 separate telephone lines assigned to AP and its journalists, including main offices. Federal officials have said investigators are trying to hunt down the sources of information for a May 7, 2012, AP story that disclosed details of a CIA operation in Yemen to stop an airliner bomb plot around the anni-

one can lose one’s breasts and still remain a woman. “I do not feel any less of a woman,” Jolie wrote in her article. “I feel empowered that I made a strong choice that in no way diminishes my femininity.” That impressed Nagy, the genetic counselor. “For women, so much is tied to sexuality, to sensuality,” she said. “Many women feel defined by that. So for her to be such an icon and come out and say, ‘Look what I did’ — I’m hoping that prompts other women to have conversations, about their own options.”

versary of the killing of Osama bin Laden. Holder said he removed himself from the leaked-information probe because he himself had been interviewed by FBI agents as part of the investigation. It was the Justice Department’s No. 2 official, Deputy Attorney General James Cole, who made the decision to seek news media phone records. “This was a very serious leak, a very grave leak” that “put the American people at risk,” Holder said. GOP National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus called on Holder to resign, saying he had “trampled on the First Amendment.” Declared the No. 2 Democrat in the House, Rep. Steny Hoyer: “This is activity that should not have happened and must be checked from happening again.”

The Post Editorials

In denial about a three-ring circus Benghazi silence, Tea Party scrutiny, AP phone records. It’s more than a sideshow, Mr. President.


bama administration officials spent much of Tuesday defending their secret acquisition of Associated Press phone records, all the while expressing their profound respect for the First Amendment. We shudder to think what they’d have done if they had little regard for free speech protections. Combined with disclosures that the Internal Revenue Service targeted conservative groups for scrutiny and ongoing revelations about the political shaping of the Benghazi terrorist attack narrative, it’s been a disappointing week for the administration. These incidents demonstrate a lack of transparency, a disregard for civil liberties and, quite frankly, a particularly unattractive brand of arrogance. It’s time for President Obama to acknowledge these failures individually and collectively and to cooperate with the various investigations that have been — or soon will be — launched to come up with answers. The nation deserves as much from someone who campaigned against politics as usual. News that the Justice Department obtained records for 20 separate work and personal phone lines used by AP reporters and editors is an outrageous impingement on news-gathering freedoms in an effort to hunt down the source of a government leak. The Justice Department sought the records from 2012 in its investigation of a disclosure of classified information about an al-Qaeda plot. This is not a situation in which the department had attempted to get the phone records in a fashion that gave the AP an opportunity to argue in court that press freedoms outweighed the government’s interest in obtaining the information. No, this was an unacceptable use of power to collect a trove of records

David Fitzsimmons, The Arizona Daily Star

that gave the government a broad window into the organization’s newsgathering operations. When you couple that with the IRS’s loathsome efforts to target Tea Party-affiliated groups seeking taxexempt status, it bespeaks a disregard for fundamental constitutional rights. The White House maintains it was not privy to the phone record probe or IRS targeting activities until long after they had occurred. And while that may be the case, that does not relieve the president of responsibility for them. But Obama appears to be in a state of denial, telling reporters Monday that “if in fact IRS personnel engaged in the kind of practices that have been reported” — which the IRS had already apologized for — it would be “outrageous.” We’re well past the “if” stage, Mr. President. The evolving narrative and disclosures about the attack on a U.S. diplomatic outpost in Benghazi, Libya, is indicative of a different transgression, but one no less reprehensible. The lack of transparency, and shifting story line about who knew what and when they knew it, smells of political stagecraft. The administration was duty-bound to come clean about a tragedy in which four Americans lost their lives. The president has called the continued examination of the situation a “sideshow.” When coupled with the events surrounding actions of the Justice Department and the IRS, the “sideshow” is poised to become part of a main event that threatens the president’s effectiveness moving forward. These types of conduct brought down a president a generation ago. President Obama must take decisive action to stop the comparisons and the risk of suffering a similar fate.

The Open Forum Letters to the Editor The IRS’s targeting of conservative political groups Re: “IRS’s scrutiny went beyond keywords to target ideology,” May 13 news story.

Thank you so much for reporting on the Internal Revenue Service’s abuse of power in targeting conservative groups. This is something that all Americans, regardless of political persuasion, should be able to come together on. We must call out tyranny in any form to preserve our collective freedom. No matter what group the IRS had been targeting, whether it had been based on politics, religion, race, etc., it is outrageous that those in power can use the IRS to punish its (perceived) enemies. Recently, in a commencement speech delivered to grads at Ohio State University, President Obama implored his audience to reject the voices that warn “tyranny always lurks just around the corner.” The IRS scandal is the perfect, concrete example of why we must be ever vigilant in holding our government responsible for its actions so that tyranny does not have a chance to take root and grow. Again, thank you for not burying this story. Betsy Lyon, Arvada

BBB The media’s reporting about the IRS “scandal” leaves a lot to be desired. It seems to me that the real scandal is how any organization whose sole purpose is political manipulation and whose methods include mudslinging and distortion by anonymous plutocrats can qualify as a tax-exempt entity. Whether it be the Tea Party “patriots” or some other puppet group, we should be asking who’s pulling the strings. And why do we guarantee their anonymity and freedom from taxation? This particular case is a tempest in a teapot — the IRS was, for once, simply doing its job. Carl R. Carnein, Florissant

BBB I gave financial support to the president’s re-election campaign thinking the president would fight for all people and all points of view. However, his administration’s blatant disregard of civil liberties is indefensible. It is intolerable for the administration to scrutinize an application for tax-exempt status based on an organization’s point of view. It is outrageous to obtain phone records of a news organization to find a leak. Clearly, power corrupts. Let’s not let this president get absolute power. My disillusionment is complete.

Laurie L. Cole, Aurora

BBB I fail to be outraged by the IRS targeting the “Taxed Enough Already” Party organizations when they demanded tax-exempt status to promote evasion of taxes under the guise of their constitutional rights. What’s next? Complaining that the police target known bank robbers who shot at the police when investigating a bank robbery?

Mark German, Brighton

A message of inclusion


new program launched in the Western Slope town of Carbondale that invites immigrants of all ages to participate in the community is an approach worth replicating elsewhere. Like many cities and towns, Carbondale has been grappling with how to handle an influx of new residents. Enter George Stranahan, who eight years ago founded the Manaus Fund with the aim of investing in entrepreneurial nonprofits. As The Denver Post’s Nancy Lofholm explained in a story earlier this week, “Stranahan and other Manaus workers put their heads together to try to figure out how to better integrate immigrants into the community and into the schools where more than half the students are Latino.” What they came up with were six areas of focus as part of what was dubbed the Valley Settlement Project. Aided by a $1.2 million grant from

the Denver-based W.K. Kellogg Foundation, the project has been pushing to involve both children and their parents. The programs target early-childhood education, child care, afterschool programs, parental involvement in schools, and adult education. The effort is especially relevant given a recent report from the Hickenlooper administration that was critical of schools’ ability to effectively reach the state’s growing population of non-English speakers. Carbondale’s effort is no substitute for additional investment in the classroom or teacher training. But early returns are promising. “This is making a huge difference,” said Roaring Fork School District Re-1 Superintendent Diana Sirko. “It is sending an important message to the community of acceptance and inclusion.” That message of inclusion is one we’d like to see delivered in more communities.

Gov. Christie setting an example with weight battle Re: “Christie secretly had weight-loss surgery,” May 8 news story.

I applaud New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s announcement that he has undergone lap band surgery to help manage his weight. As a public figure and politician, Christie is uniquely positioned to help champion obesity awareness, and to spread the message that bariatric surgery is not the easy way out for patients who struggle with weight. “It’s not a career issue for me,” said Christie. “It is a long-term health issue for me and that’s the basis on which I made this deci-

sion. It’s not about anything other than that.” Bariatric surgery has not only been shown to help patients lose significant weight, but many patients have complete resolution of their medical problems, including diabetes, following the procedures. Bariatric surgery has even been shown to reduce the risks of colon and breast cancer. Surgery is not the easy way out.

While I’m for the pot tax proposal, one question looms large. A Jan. 28 Denver Post article addressed “federal-law conflicts that prevent banks from working with marijuana businesses.” By exten-

sion, isn’t the state, when it collects taxes from marijuana businesses, accepting drug-generated money? Is it then against federal law for banks to accept such tax payments for safekeeping for the state? Steven R. Turner, Centennial

Benghazi investigation is not a witch hunt Re: “Looks like a witch hunt,” May 10 Eugene Robinson column.

Eugene Robinson’s column referring to Rep. Darrell Issa’s investigation of Benghazi as a witch hunt is disgusting. Robinson twists the facts in his article as bad as the Obama administration twisted the facts and continues to do so even now. Honesty and accountability are essential from our leaders. It is becoming quite apparent neither was exercised as regards Benghazi. A coverup during the election is being uncovered! Richard Allshouse, Centennial

Only five years for chronic fraudster? Re: “Tax-fraud scheme, reincarnated; Man sentenced for filing tax returns for dead people — again,” May 10 news story.

I actually got a chuckle after reading about the exploits of former Denver resident and career criminal Thomas Quintin. He runs a fraud scheme in California in the early ’90s that nets him millions of dollars and gets convicted. He manages to escape to the Cayman Islands with his wife. Do you think he opened any bank accounts there? He then gets captured in Canada and serves two years in prison. Following his release, he goes into the fraud business again and files more than 2,000 false income tax returns using the identities of the deceased that nets him just under $2 million. He’s then sentenced to five years in prison. Are you kidding me? Five years? I’ll bet he makes a beeline for the Caymans again upon his release and lives happily ever after! Bill Fountain, Aurora

All eyes on CDOT app, not the road? Re: “CDOT smartphone app wins national kudos for innovation,” May 13 news story.

Congratulations to the Colorado Department of Transportation on its award-winning smartphone app. The app’s use is now encouraged on overhead signs posted on Interstate 70. When I first saw the signs, I thought I misread them. More than 95 percent of all accidents are caused by driver inattention; now the state is endorsing it. Knowing what’s ahead is good information, but first you have to get there. Jack Connolly, Grand Junction

Standards are our best hope

Denver Post Columnist

Governor boxed in on Dunlap “B

By Donna Lynne


oday’s workplace demands highly educated employees who can succeed in an increasingly complex and global economy. As a business leader and parent, I am impressed with the hard work and innovative strategies educators engage in daily to meet the needs of students. Yet, despite these efforts, I also see that far too many students are not getting the education and skills they need. These skills include problemsolving, critical thinking, navigating ambiguity, collaborating, and communicating with clarity. This is what I look for in new employees. And these are the competencies and skills that Colorado is on the path to helping students attain through the use of the Common Core State Standards. Colorado has adopted the Common Core State Standards in English language arts and math as part of its Colorado Academic Standards. These state-developed standards, adopted by 45 states, the District of Columbia, and the Department of Defense, outline rigorous expectations for what all students should know and be able to do. They incorporate the best and highest of previous state standards in the U.S. and are internationally benchmarked to the top performing nations around the world. The standards provide students, parents and teachers with a shared, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn at every grade level and in each subject. The standards stress not only procedural skills, but also conceptual understanding to make sure students are learning and absorbing critical information. For example, the high school standards call on students to practice applying mathematical ways of thinking to real world issues and challenges; they prepare students to think and reason mathematically. The high school standards emphasize mathematical modeling — the use of math and statistics to analyze practical situations — to help students better understand a concept and improve their ability to make decisions. We expect all students to be strong and well-rounded in literacy. The English language arts standards require a range of high quality readings through a combination of informational and literary text. This prompts students to learn a stronger vocabulary and equips them to communicate their understanding of a wide variety of materials. I am joined by a growing number of business leaders across Colorado and around the nation that support these high standards for our students. They reflect what students need to be successful in college, career and life. As a member of Colorado Succeeds, a business coalition supporting education reform, my colleagues and I have reviewed the Common Core State Standards. We support their alignment with fundamental business principles because students who learn under this system are more likely to enter the workforce with the knowledge and skills essential to be productive employees. This is good for students. This is good for business. And this is good for Colorado and America. To bring jobs back to America and create new ones, we need to make full use of the Common Core State Standards, as they will bolster our students’ achievement and the quality of our future employees. The future of America will be determined by the strength of our economy, an economy where success will be predicated on a highly educated workforce prepared to excel and lead the industries and technologies of tomorrow. If we want Colorado’s kids to be the best and brightest, we need to make sure they are set up to succeed in a competitive world and to achieve the best quality of life. The Common Core Standards are an essential element of this vision of our economic future.

Donna Lynne is the group president for Kaiser Foundation Health Plan. She serves on the board of Colorado Succeeds, and is a member of the Colorado Legacy Foundation, Denver Public Schools Foundation, and Teach for America-Colorado. She also co-chairs the Denver Education Compact with Mayor Michael Hancock.

IRS right to scrutinize R

epublicans in Congress are so hungry for scalps, they just can’t leave well enough alone. The scandal engulfing the Internal Revenue Service is a story that’s playing to their benefit. Yesterday, after having the weekend to think about it, Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida puffed himself up and called on the president to “demand the IRS commissioner’s resignation, effectively immediately.” Only one problem: The position of IRS commissioner is currently vacant. (Rubio’s spokesman later clarified he was referring to the acting commissioner.) Chalk up his confusion to Obama Derangement Syndrome, which afflicts Republicans as acutely as Bush Derangement Syndrome once did Democrats. When you are in a hole, the saying goes, stop digging. The corollary is that when you’re on top, don’t pile on. What happened at the IRS is significant, easily understood by a distracted public and being taken seriously by President Barack Obama. What happened in Benghazi — the other scandal Republicans are obsessed with — is none of the above. The differing ways the president is treating the two stories says a lot about the state of Washington scandals. With Benghazi, Obama takes the Republicans’ second go-round at scandal-making personally but not seriously. He’s still bristling over their treatment of U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice, who was said to be his first choice to replace Hillary Clinton as secretary of state. After Rice became the target of criticism last year for her Sunday-morning recital of the administration’s talking points about the scandal, she was forced to withdraw her name from consideration. That’s why Obama was so sarcastic — as close to ridicule or anger


as he generally gets — talking about the latest congressional hearings, saying the Republicans’ theory of the case “defies logic.” If the president were worried, he wouldn’t be baiting the Republicans he has been taking out to dinner for the past two months. The White House has also engaged in a little stonewalling, which only raises Republican suspicions. Last week, Press Secretary Jay Carney defended his characterization of the changes to the talking points as “stylistic.” Hardly. Yes, the changes reflected a tug of war between the State Department and the Central Intelligence Agency, but everyone knows the White House is more powerful than both and gets the final word. Benghazi’s not nothing. People died. Yet it’s hard to turn it into a sustainable political scandal when a prominent Republican such as former Defense Secretary Robert Gates says there wasn’t a way for the military to have saved the diplomatic compound from an attack last September. Not to mention that Republicans themselves have blocked the spending of more money to increase security at dangerous posts. So Republicans are turning their focus on the IRS. But this scandal may not be as damaging to the president as Republicans expect. The IRS was doing what it should have been doing, but in a very stupid way. It will help that the stupidity, and any Benghazi-type coverup that took place, happened under the IRS’s last permanent commissioner, and that this commissioner was appointed by President George W. Bush. What the IRS was doing was, at long last, bringing

scrutiny to under-scrutinized groups that are classified under the tax code as “social welfare” organizations but are basically engaged in partisan politics. IRS investigators essentially took a Google shortcut, asking for more information from any group with “tea party” or “patriot” in its name. They did not have a similar shortcut for liberal groups equally likely to have engaged in inappropriate political activity, although surely there were search terms they could have come up with. Since the groups being profiled were the very ones congressional Republicans fear most, the program quickly got another kind of scrutiny: from congressional Republicans. The then-commissioner, Douglas Shulman, was called before Congress in March 2012 to answer for the program. He stonewalled. Now Republicans are calling for a special investigation, since his resignation is a little beside the point. There really isn’t much of an argument to be had about what happened at the IRS — the president himself twice called it “outrageous” at yesterday’s press conference. The question is how the president and congressional Republicans will manage the fallout. For Obama, the risk is that the scandal undermines one of the central goals of his administration, which is to rebuild faith in the federal government. Sure, no one likes the IRS, present company excluded. But the IRS is the one federal agency that touches every U.S. household. If the president wants Americans to be able to trust their government more, and he does, then he needs the IRS to be beyond reproach. Republicans have an easier task: ginning up outrage over the IRS. They just have to be careful not to make too many calls for the resignation of officials who don’t exist.

Canada sells out science By Phil Plait Slate


ver the past few years, the Canadian government has been lurching into anti-science territory. For example, they’ve been muzzling scientists, essentially censoring them from talking about their research. Scientists have fought back against this, though from what I read with limited success. But a new development makes the situation appear to be far worse. In a stunning announcement, the National Research Council — the Canadian scientific research and development agency — has now said that it will only perform research that has “social or economic gain.” John MacDougal, president of the NRC, said, “Scientific discovery is not valuable unless it has commercial value.” Gary Goodyear, the Canadian Minister of State for Science and Technology, also stated “There is [sic] only two reasons why we do science and technology. First is to create knowledge … second is to use that knowledge for social and economic benefit. Unfortunately, all too often the knowledge gained is opportunity lost.” I had to read the Toronto Sun article two or three times to make sure I wasn’t missing something, because I was thinking that no one could possibly utter such colossally ignorant statements. These two

men — leaders in the Canadian scientific research community — were saying, out loud and clearly, that the only science worth doing is what lines the pocket of business. This is monumentally backwards thinking. That is not the reason we do science. Economic benefits are results of doing research, but should not be the reason we do it. Basic scientific research is a vast endeavor, and some of it will pay off economically, and some won’t. In almost every case, you cannot know in advance which will do which. In the 19th century, for example, James Clerk Maxwell was just interested in understanding electricity and magnetism. He didn’t do it for monetary benefit, to support a business or to maximize a profit. Yet his research led to the foundation of our entire economy today. Computers, the Internet, communication, satellites, everything you plug in or that uses a battery, stem from the work he did simply because of his own curiosity. I strongly suspect that if he were to apply to the National Research Council for funding under this new regime, he’d be turned down flat. The kind of work Maxwell did then is very difficult to do without support these days, and we need governments to provide that help. Goodyear did throw in a mention of “social benefit,” and I’ll agree that does moti-

vate many scientists — making life better for people is a strong incentive — but again, you cannot always know what research will do that and what won’t. And that’s OK, because it’s not like the money is wasted when invested in science. For one thing, the amount of money we’re talking about here is tiny compared to a national budget. For another, investment in science always pays off. Always, and at a very high rate. If you want to boost your economy in the middle and long run, one of the best ways to do it is invest in science. But the Canadian government is doing the precise opposite. If proposed and immediate economic benefits are the prime factors in choosing what science to fund, then the freedom of this human endeavor will be critically curtailed. It’s draining the passion and heart out of one of the best things we humans do. By doing this, the Canadian government and the NRC have literally sold out science. Phil Plait, the creator of Bad Astronomy, is author of “Bad Astronomy: Misconceptions and Misuses Revealed, from Astrology to the Moon Landing ‘Hoax’ ” and “Death from the Skies! These Are the Ways the Universe Will End.” He lives in Boulder.

ecause all three current death row inmates are African-American and were convicted in Arapahoe County (and were apparently all from the same high school),” declares the local district attorney in a letter to Gov. John Hickenlooper, “the anti-death penalty advocates claim that the prosecutors elected in Arapahoe County … must be bloodthirsty racists who use the death penalty only against African-Americans. “It is a vile, disgusting, and offensive argument … .” We are used to impassioned rhetoric by those who oppose the death penalty. But George Brauchler, district attorney for the 18th Judicial District that includes Arapahoe County, and Matt Maillaro, his senior chief deputy who co-signed the letter to the governor, have no trouble mustering indignation of their own against those who would spare Nathan Dunlap, whose execution has been set for the week of Aug. 18. Brauchler and Maillaro’s 32-page rebuttal to Dunlap’s plea for clemency is a tour de force of controlled but heated — and occasionally sarcastic — argument. And nowhere are they more effective than on racial bias. I say that as someone who in February argued that the governor should commute Dunlap’s sentence to life in prison without parole, which is what his attorneys officially requested this month. The death penalty in Colorado is rarely pursued and even more rarely achieved (exactly one execution since 1967), giving it a random, peculiar quality that mocks our commitment to equality before the law. But racist is another matter. Dunlap’s attorneys know that American history has been stained at times by horribly bigoted prosecutors and juries, and by disturbing death-row numbers. So they resort to a few bleak statistics, such as blacks comprising 41 percent of death-row inmates nationally and 100 percent of Colorado’s, implying the latter is especially damning. What they don’t mention is that a U.S. Supreme Court decision in 2002 overturned the death sentences in Colorado of two whites and a Latino. And as Brauchler and Maillaro point out, “since 1980, according to the appellate reported cases, the death penalty was sought against 12 whites, seven blacks and nine Hispanics” in numerous judicial districts. The last time a black man was executed in Colorado was 1947. University of Colorado Professor Michael Radelet, in his study “Capital Punishment in Colorado, 1859 to 1972,” concluded blacks accounted for 10 of 102 executions in that period and whites 77 (78 since 1997). Ethnic bias was pervasive in Colorado’s early decades and can’t be discounted as an influence, but it’s hard to look at such data and argue the state has conspicuously targeted blacks for execution. Nor was the decision to pursue the death penalty against Dunlap, who coldly murdered four at an Aurora Chuck E. Cheese in 1993, a strained interpretation of the law. For that matter, how could the governor plausibly object to how the death penalty is applied when he stepped in a few weeks ago to stop the legislature from a repeal effort? By doing so, he didn’t just undermine bad arguments for commutation but good arguments, too, such as the roulette-like process by which a killer such as Dunlap ever gets to the point of actually facing death. Hickenlooper could of course base his commutation on the the theory that “Mr. Dunlap was not cold or cruel,” as his lawyers argue. “He was sick. He was a teenager suffering from bipolar disorder and psychosis, in the grip of his first full-blown manic episode” — and the jury never knew it. Brauchler and Maillaro pour scorn on that claim, too, and maybe the governor can determine which side’s experts are more credible. And if not? Then our broken deathpenalty system — the one the governor intervened to save — will stagger into action and execute someone for only the second time in 46 years.

A weak frontal boundary may provide just enough instability for a few showers and thunderstorms across the Midwest. Showers and thunderstorms will also be scattered throughout much of the southern plains and Rockies, especially during the afternoon and evening hours. Meanwhile, showers will spread into the Pacific Northwest.

Valor Christian’s MaryBeth Sant, practicing Tuesday, has the nation’s fastest 100-meter dash time this year among high school girls: 11.38 seconds. John Leyba, The Denver Post

A blazing blur makes haste Valor’s Sant building national reputation By Neil H. Devlin The Denver Post

highlands ranch» At 5-foot-1, 100 pounds, and with blue eyes and a blond ponytail, she looks more like a charm hanging off a bracelet than the nation’s fastest schoolgirl sprinter. It’s nothing new for MaryBeth Sant, who has heard all the reasons she might not be a star athlete. She’s too petite, and there’s no way she resembles anything close to the prototypical burner. And yet, the Valor Christian High School senior has left all competitors chasing her vapor trails. Pardon her if she enjoys it. “It’s really cool being fast,” Sant said. “Just walking up to the (starting) line, it’s ‘What? She’s not fast, not supposed to be a sprinter.’ In the beginning, that’s how it was. ‘What is she doing?’ … and 99.9 percent of the time, I’m the smallest girl there.” Sant’s reputation has grown. She ran the

fastest 100 meters this season by a U.S. schoolgirl a couple of weeks ago at the St. Vrain Valley meet in Longmont, clocking 11.38 seconds.

t was 10 minutes until dawn. And this son of two billionaires had yet to go to bed. But, contrary to the stereotype, Josh Kroenke was not sipping champagne from the shoe of a Hollywood starlet. He was glued to his cellphone, texting thoughts on how the Avalanche could again drink from the Stanley Cup. “I don’t sleep much,” Kroenke told me last week, after naming himself the replacement for hockey honcho Pierre Lacroix as new president of the Avalanche. “Late at night, I have trouble shutting it down. I get an idea in my head, and I want to finalize it right away.” Three days after his 33rd birth-


this year, according to “I was surprised,” Sant said of her 11.38 clocking. “I mean, I’d been aiming for an 11.3something. All of my coaches told me I was capable of it. I was so excited.” Said Valor coach Brian Kula: “You never know about these blond, ponytailed sprinters … but she’s just what you want in a sprinter: good start, and her lower half is pretty good. All the important muscles are pretty well developed.” Sant, who lives in Parker and was born in Atlanta, has long legs, trains like a prizefighter, hits the weight room and is thrilled she was blessed with raw speed. “It’s God-given,” she said. Her bloodlines help, too. Her mother, Jan, was a sprinter in high school, as was her father, Jay, who held school records before making his way to the Air Force. He’s now a pilot for United Airlines.


Thursday’s opening of the three-day Colorado track and championships at Jefferson County Stadium in Lakewood comes with five classifications and plenty of pageantry. A look at some of the high-end finals to watch:

Reporter Irv Moss writes about stars from the past

Top prep hooper heading to Kansas huntington, w. va.» Top prep basketball prospect Andrew Wiggins told a small gathering of family and friends at his high school gym Tuesday that he will play at Kansas. Then the Huntington Prep star, who has been called the best prep prospect since LeBron James, signed his letter-of-intent and officially became a Jayhawk. No big speech. No bands, live TV coverage or props. Just as Wiggins wanted it. And just like that, Lawrence, Kan., became more of a focal point for the upcoming college basketball season. Kansas plays at Colorado this December. “I’m looking forward to getting there and just doing my thing,” Wiggins said. The 6-foot-8 Toronto native chose Kansas over Kentucky, North Carolina and Florida State. Wiggins said there wasn’t

one particular selling point, taking into account each school’s coaching staff, players and program. “I just followed my heart,” he said. He’ll join one of the top recruiting classes in the country. “I really thought it was one of those long shots, at least when we first got involved,” Kansas coach Bill Self said. “The more we hung around, the more we felt he liked us.” Four of Kansas’ five recruits are considered to be in the top 50 nationally, including guards Conner Frankamp and Wayne Selden, forward Brannen Greene and center Joel Embiid. Initially rated as a 2014 prospect, Wiggins shot to the top of recruiting charts when he decided last October to reclassify into his original high school class of 2013. The Associated Press

Jim Tucker coached Englewood High School tennis for more than three decades and caught the attention of Florida’s Nick Bollettieri, who opened an academy in Boulder in the 1980s. Cyrus McCrimmon, The Denver Post

Tennis became part of life’s work for Tucker L

ittle did Jim Tucker know that he would gain insight to his life’s calling while watching an afternoon television show. This was the late 1950s, and television was a relatively new form of entertainment and means of communication. People around the country were seeing their sports heroes on TV for the first time. Tennis pro Pancho Gonzales was a guest on the show Tucker was watching that afternoon the summer before he would attend high school. Tucker didn’t know much about tennis, or Gonzales. “The way (Gonzales) explained the game made it sound interesting to me,” Tucker said. “It sounded easy, and it looked like fun.” Soon after, Tucker took up tennis. He played on the Pueblo East tennis team, coached by Warren Carere, that won the school’s first championship in any sport in the South Central League . He continued playing in college at Southern Colorado State College. After college, he entered the coaching and teaching ranks, including 33 years as the Englewood High School boys and girls coach. “I was around tennis for 50 years, and I loved every moment of it,” Tucker said. “I’ve worn a lot of different hats. I’ve written articles for the top tennis magazines, and I’ve been a tennis pro for 35 years at different places all around Denver.” Tucker’s involvement in the game has been slowed. He suffered a stroke three years ago and has worked hard to regain his ability to walk without support. But he can hold serve talking tennis. Even though the game was new to him, Tucker quickly took to tennis. He won the No. 1 singles title in the South Central League in 1961. When he went

on to college, the school was called Pueblo Junior College, but it became a four-year college while he was there and was renamed Southern Colorado State College. It now is CSU-Pueblo. He won the singles and doubles championships in the Empire Conference. If he wasn’t convinced about his calling to tennis by Gonzales, his meeting with another tennis great clinched the deal. After college, Tucker went into the military and was stationed at Fort Sill, Okla. Arthur Ashe, who was on the staff at West Point and ran Army’s tennis program, came to Fort Sill to put on a tennis clinic. Ashe and Tucker played an exhibition match.It was 1968, and Ashe was at the top of his game, having won the U.S. Open that year. Tucker’s ability to coach later caught the interest of Nick Bollettieri, who ran a prestigious world tennis academy in Bradenton, Fla. Bollettieri wanted to open a satellite academy in Boulder. He sought out Tucker to be on the staff in Boulder in 1986 and 1987, the two-year duration of the operation there. “We had tennis people in attendance from all over the world,” Tucker said.

As a player, Tucker won the Colorado Open in 1991. That year, he also won two gold medals at the Colorado State Games in the men’s 45 and older division. But maybe his most memorable competition came in 1999, when he competed in the Senior Olympic Games in Orlando, Fla., where he made it to the semifinals. “They had a parade of athletes to open the event,” Tucker said. “That was one of the top thrills of my life.” The hat he wore as a coach at Englewood High always comes off the shelf. “I never cut a player when I coached,” Tucker said. “I also coached girls basketball for a time. When I left Englewood, I coached for a year at Mountain Vista High School in Highlands Ranch.” Tucker would like to return to coaching someday, if his health permits. He would to inspire others to take up the game, remembering well the impact Gonzales had on his life. Irv Moss: 303-954-1296,

U.S. hockey team finishes third in group; Russia next helsinki» Slovakia defeated the United States 4-1 and the Czech Republic routed Norway 7-0 in group finales for both teams to reach the quarterfinals at the ice hockey world championship on Tuesday. The U.S. had a chance to win the group, but finished third and will meet Russia in a quarterfinal Thursday. In Stockholm, the other group leader, Switzerland, defeated Belarus 4-1 to achieve its best group record at the worlds: 7-0. Switzerland won its group, followed by Canada, Sweden and the Czechs. Slovakia’s Branko Radivojevic was handed a free score after only 15 seconds when U.S. goaltender Ben Bishop turned

the puck over, trying to reach a teammate with a pass. Martin Bartek, 3:44 in, and Rene Vydareny made it 3-0 for last year’s runner-up with Rastislav Stana making only 20 saves. Danny Kristo replied for the U.S. in the second period, and Marko Dano added a late empty-net goal. “We were hopeful and excited about the opportunity to try to finish first. We were not able to do that but we will be ready for the next opponent,” U.S. coach Joe Sacco said. Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin will join Russia’s team, announced a day after Ovechkin’s Capitals were eliminated in the first round of the NHL playoffs. The Associated Press

Pro Bowl RB Muncie dies metairie, la.» Chuck Muncie, a Pro Bowl running back with both the New Orleans Saints and San Diego Chargers, has died at age 60, the NFL clubs and a family spokesman said Tuesday. Muncie, who died at his Los Angeles-area home Monday from heart failure, was the Saints’ first-round pick, third overall, out of California in 1976. He played 4½ seasons in New Orleans before being traded in 1980 to San Diego, where he finished his nine-year NFL career. In 1979, Muncie became the

Bills’ Williams sues ex-fiancée

Extra security for Boulder race

frisco, texas» Glen Gulutzan couldn’t end the longest playoff drought in franchise history for the Dallas Stars, and the second-year coach didn’t hold the option on the remaining season in his contract. When the general manager who hired him was dumped two weeks ago, Gulutzan’s firing looked like the inevitable next step in an overhaul of the staff, and it came Tuesday in an announcement from new general manager Jim Nill. The Stars missed the playoffs in both of Gulutzan’s seasons, making it five straight years without a postseason trip for a franchise that crammed 73 playoff games into a four-year stretch a little more than a decade ago.

orchard, n.y.» A high-priced contract can’t buy Mario Williams love, leading the Buffalo Bills defensive end to sue his ex-fiancée, demanding she return a $785,000 diamond engagement ring. In a lawsuit filed in Harris County, Texas, district court May 3, Williams alleges Erin Marzouki broke off the engagement in January. He accuses Marzouki of absconding with the ring, and of using the relationship as a means to get at his money. Williams enters the second season of a six-year, $100 million contract he signed with the Bills in March 2012. In response, Marzouki filed a countersuit on Monday, calling Williams’ claims “ridiculous.” The Associated Press

In light of the fatal bombings at the Boston Marathon in April, Bolder Boulder race organizers and local police Tuesday announced there will be extra security measures — including bag screenings at the Folsom Field finish — at this year’s race. The announcement by Boulder and University of Colorado police came nearly a month after two bombs were set off near the finish of the Boston Marathon that killed three and injured more than 140. Spectators bringing items into Folsom for the finish will only be allowed to bring in soft-sided bags no larger than 12 inches by 12 inches by 12 inches — and those bags will be checked.

Muncie was traded by the Saints at midseason in 1980 to the San Diego, where he played 51 games and was named to Pro Bowl rosters two more times.

Veteran DB Woodson to visit Broncos By Mike Klis The Denver Post

Burner returner wants more Holliday’s huge playoff vs. Ravens makes him marked man in 2013 By Mike Klis The Denver Post

Lose a game as the Broncos did on a frigid day in January and an occasional dose of gallows humor can help. The joke going around Dove Valley this offseason: Had the Joe Flacco final-second rainbow got knocked away instead of landing in the arms of Jacoby Jones, it would have been Trindon Holliday who landed the gig on “Dancing with the Stars” instead of the Ravens receiver. “Yeah, I’ve heard that one,’’ Holliday said Tuesday. “But I don’t think I would have been on ‘Dancing with the Stars.’ That’s not my type of deal.’’ Holliday, a tiny, speedy returner, should be an NFL star. With 41 seconds remaining in the Broncos’ second-round AFC playoff game on Jan. 12, Holliday was the star. He had returned a punt 90 yards for a touchdown early in the first quarter, then started the


second half with a 104-yard kickoff return for a touchdown. Both returns put the Broncos up by a touchdown. The Broncos were up 35-28 with 41 seconds left in regulation when Flacco stepped up in the pocket. At that point, Holliday was the difference in the game. No NFL player ever had scored touchdowns on a punt return and a kickoff return in the same playoff game. He would be written up prominently in the next day’s paper. He would have been doing network interviews all the way through Super Bowl week, had the Broncos made it that far. Instead, Flacco’s heave landed in Jones’ arms, and the 70yard touchdown tied the game 35-35 with 31 seconds left. Baltimore won the game in double overtime, Jones had another big game in the Ravens’ Super Bowl win, and the returner-receiver became a superb dancer who was tied for first place among the five “Dancing’’ finalists

heading into Tuesday night’s elimination show. What might have been for Trindon Holliday … “I haven’t been thinking about how I would have been the hero if the outcome had been different,’’ Holliday said. “That didn’t really go through my mind. It was a team effort.’’ Onward to a new season. The decline in recent years of the Chicago Bears’ Devin Hester means Holliday will enter this season as one of the top five returners in the game. He might even be the most feared. He was one of only two players who had four touchdown returns, counting the postseason, last season. Wouldn’t you know it, Jones was the other. What makes Holliday unusually dangerous, though, is at 5foot-5, 168 pounds, he’s tough for tacklers to locate. And he might be the fastest player in football. He ran the 100 meters in 9.98 seconds at an NCAA track meet

for LSU in 2009. This means Holliday could be a marked man in the return game this year. A difficult-to-find marked man, perhaps. But a returner who will keep specialteams coordinators up nights. “I’m going to be coming in with more focus and excitement because opposing teams know you now,’’ he said. “There’s going to be more of a game plan to try to keep the ball out of your hands or make special coverages against your return.’’ Holliday does have a weakness, and it is not a minor one: catching or hanging on to the football. Broncos coach John Fox didn’t want to use Jim Leonhard on punt returns inside his own 20-yard line last year. But Fox believed it was necessary because Leonhard was more sure-handed than Holliday. “Yeah, it’s the main priority,’’ Holliday said. “You can’t go anywhere without the ball.’’ But when he gets it?

Triple option slowed, helped TE Reed By Mike Klis The Denver Post

When Broncos rookie tight end Lucas Reed was 6 years old, his father built a gym in the basement. There, Lucas and his older brother Brooks Reed would put on boxing gloves and spar before a captive audience usually of one. “They were 13-ounce boxing gloves, so you couldn’t really hurt yourself,’’ Lucas Reed said after a Broncos rookie minicamp session last weekend. “He just liked seeing us slug each other.’’ Brooks Reed has emerged as one of the NFL’s best strongside linebackers for the Houston Texans. Lucas is two years younger, but at 6-foot-6, he’s the big brother. “Put that in the paper,’’ Lucas said. Brooks was drafted in the second round out of the University of Arizona, his hometown college, in 2011, and Lucas should have been drafted out of New Mexico. Entering his senior season with the Lobos, Lucas Reed already had built quite the résumé. Third-team freshman AllAmerican. All Mountain West as a sophomore. An impressive 72 catches through his junior year that put him five catches


away from the school’s career tight end record. But then Reed had to settle for just tying John Duff’s record. No injury. Reed had just five catches as a senior. Which was pretty good when the freshman starting quarterback finished with 13 completions. “We went to the triple option,’’ Reed said. “I got to learn how to block better. Draft-wise, it probably didn’t help, but becoming a better player, yeah, it helped.’’ It won’t be easy for the younger, bigger Reed to make the Broncos’ 53-man roster because it already has a mix of productive veterans in Joel Dreessen and Jacob Tamme, and developing young talent in Julius Thomas and Virgil Green. But Reed was given a jersey and with no plans of transforming Peyton Manning into a triple option quarterback, perhaps it can work out so the two Reed brothers will meet at Reliant Stadium on Dec. 22 when the Broncos play the Texans. “We talk every week if not every day,’’ Lucas said of Brooks. “I just saw him on film when the Broncos were playing the Houston Texans (in a week 3 game last season). And there was my brother. I was like, “that’s so weird.’ Maybe, I’ll get to block him now.’’

Let’s assume Charles Woodson at 36 years old has lost a step. At 26, he was a left cornerback often assigned one-onone with the other team’s No. 1 receiver. At 36, he may well be a strong safety assigned to covering a tight end. Even with a lost step, Woodson should still be ahead. The Broncos hope so. Deciding they could use a little more playmaking in at the back of their secondary, the Broncos will visit with the eight-time Pro Bowler Wednesday at the team’s Dove Valley headquarters. Woodson broke into the NFL with a quarterback named Peyton Manning, both first-round draft picks in 1998. Manning, who finished second to Woodson in the 1997 Heisman Trophy balloting, was selected No. 1 overall by Indianapolis. Woodson, who remains the only predominant defensive player to win the Heisman, was drafted No. 4 overall by the Oakland Raiders. Funny how their lives keeps running into each other. It’s now possible both Manning and Woodson will finish their careers in Denver before moving on to Canton, Ohio and the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Woodson went to the Pro Bowl in his first four seasons with the Raiders, then became a ballhawking cornerback and punt returner for Green Bay. Later, as his coverage skills

slipped, Woodson became a unique nickelback w e a p o n where he was often asked to blitz. In his last five seaWoodson sons with the Packers, Woodson combined for the rare double-double of 10½ sacks and 26 interceptions. He was converted fulltime to strong safety during an injury-plagued 2012 season. Released by Green Bay to free agency in March, Woodson had initially drawn little interest, aside from a visit with the San Francisco 49ers. But in recent days, a few other teams have expressed interest, including the Raiders. Now the Broncos want to see if Woodson has anything left after they did not draft a safety, or sign one through the first wave of free agency. If the Broncos do sign Woodson, the expectation is he would compete with Mike Adams and Quinton Carter at strong safety. Adams and Broncos free safety Rahim Moore were solid starters last season but combined for just one interception. Woodson is second among active players with 55 career interceptions. The Broncos’ Champ Bailey is third with 52. The active leader is Houston safety Ed Reed with 61. Mike Klis: 303-954-1055, or

NFL Briefs FORMER COWBOYS RB JONES TO JOIN EAGLES ON ONE-YEAR DEAL philadelphia» The Eagles signed former Cowboys running back Felix Jones to a one-year contract. A first-round selection by Dallas in 2008, Jones has rushed for 2,728 yards and 11 touchdowns, averaging 4.8 yards per carry. He has 127 receptions for 1,062 yards and three touchdowns. Jones had 402 yards rushing and three TDs last year, along with 25 receptions for 262 yards and two scores. The move was announced Tuesday. Wide receiver Marvin McNutt was released to make room for Jones. Meanwhile, New Jersey State Police are investigating an incident along the New Jersey Turnpike in which a woman was left at a service area after she said she was riding on a party bus with a group of people that included Philadelphia running back LeSean McCoy. According to multiple media reports, McCoy is facing a civil lawsuit for assault over the dispute; however, he vigorously denies the allegations against him. Also, former Philadelphia quarterback Donovan McNabb said he will retire with the Eagles this fall. The six-time Pro Bowl quarterback led the Eagles to four NFC championship games and a Super Bowl loss in 11 seasons before he was traded to Washington in 2010.

Albert rejoins Chiefs as offseason workouts begin B kansas city, mo.» Any question about whether Branden Albert would fit right back in with the Chiefs was put to rest when new quarterback Alex Smith greeted his left tackle with a smile. Albert rejoined the Chiefs after missing several weeks of voluntary workouts and team meetings — and after a lengthy and sometimes acrimonious back-andforth with the franchise — for the start of three weeks of organized team activities. Kansas City Chiefs coach Andy Reid announce that the team released former fifth-round draft pick De’Quan Menzi, who spent all of last season on injured reserve, and reserve offensive lineman Lucas Patterson.

Looking Ahead C O LO R A D O AT C H I C AGO Rockies’ Jon Garland (3-3, 4.83 ERA) vs. Cubs’ Jeff Samardzija (1-5, 3.70), 6:05 p.m. Wednesday, ROOT; 850 AM Jon Garland can’t help but have positive memories about his time in Chicago. He won a ring with the White Sox in 2006. He’s still pitching now because he loves to compete. And frankly, the Rockies need him to be good, given the uncertainty surrounding Juan Nicasio. Garland has been steady at Wrigley Field, going 3-1 with a 3.52 ERA in Garland 23 innings. The Cubs’ Jeff Samardzija is that guy on the staff who wears it. He has lost five straight games, despite a 3-to-1 strikeout-to-walk ratio while limiting right-handers to a .202 average in 104 at-bats. This game sets up as an opportunity for Charlie Blackmon and Reid Brignac to start. Troy E. Renck, The Denver Post

MLB Briefs YANKEES ACTIVATE SLUGGING OUTFIELDER GRANDERSON new york» Curtis Granderson rejoined the Yankees on Tuesday, 2½ months after breaking an arm in his first at-bat of spring training. New York optioned left-hander Vidal Nuno to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, a day after he beat Cleveland in his first major-league start. The slugger, who led New York with 43 homers last season, broke his right forearm when he was hit by a pitch from Toronto’s J.A. Happ on Feb. 24. The all-star outfielder originally had hoped to be ready to play during the first week of May. Granderson was 8-for-20 with one homer and three RBIs during a five-game rehabilitation assignment at Scranton. Shortstop Derek Jeter (broken left ankle), third baseman Alex Rodriguez (left hip surgery), first baseman Mark Teixeira (torn tendon sheath in his right wrist ), corner infielder Kevin Youkilis (lumbar spine sprain), catcher Francisco Cervelli (broken right hand) and shortstop Eduardo Nuñez (soreness on left side) remain on the disabled list.

O’s Chen heading to disabled list B baltimore» The Orioles placed left-hander Wei-Yin Chen on the 15-day DL with a right oblique strain. The injury occurred Sunday during his start against the Twins. Since being signed as a free agent in January 2012 following a successful run in Japan, Chen had been the Baltimore’s most sturdy pitcher. The Taiwan native made 32 starts for the Orioles last year and is 3-3 over eight starts this season. Chen shrugged when asked to predict the amount of time he would be sidelined. “Fingers crossed for me,” he said through an interpreter. “This is day-to-day progress. I cannot push too hard. I just will try to do my best.” Also, the Orioles recalled right-handed reliever Alex Burnett and infielder Yamaico Navarro. Footnotes. Marlins catcher Jeff Mathis was activated from the DL after recovering from a broken right collarbone that caused him to miss the first six weeks of the season. … The Mets placed right-hander Scott Atchison on the 15-day DL with inflammation in his right elbow. … Blue Jays right-hander Sergio Santos will have surgery this week to remove bone spurs from his pitching elbow.

Bichette, not hot over cold stretch, trusts team will hit By Troy E. Renck The Denver Post

chicago» ante Bichette sat at his locker, eyes fixated on his iPad, searching for answers. He could watch video about hitting, swing paths and tee drills for hours. He relishes the science, not the statistics. As the Rockies entered Tuesday night at Wrigley Field with a .209 average and 30 runs in their previous 10 games, Bichette wasn’t about to panic. He was hired for his knowledge, passion and positive nature. Calling extra meetings and ripping players would contradict his message, if not purpose. “I am not worried about it, especially when it happens on the road,” said Bichette, who lived the dichotomy as a player, his home-road splits costing him the 1995 National League MVP award. “I was a little disappointed with the Yankees series. The one thing we have


talked about is having that swag at home. We started well. We need to get it back.’’ Slumps are unpredictable, starting innocently with a bad swing or a missed beach ball. Frustration turns into pressing, creating vulnerability and illogical behavior (like trying to get five hits in one at-bat). There are reasons behind the Rockies’ recent frostbite beyond the excellence of Shelby Miller and Adam Wainwright. They have been pitched to differently, especially in the Yankees and Cubs games. The Yankees pounded the Rockies inside with fastballs, identifying a weakness and executing the plan as Colorado was slow to counter. Bichette has cataloged the information, talked to his charges about the importance of understanding how they are being attacked. But ultimately this issue is more mental than physical. “We have to get away from trying to be the hero. When

you go up there looking for a home run or the big hit, you get into trouble,’’ Bichette said. “It’s about focusing on the next pitch, nothing else.’’ Tuesday, the lineup’s faint pulse became a throbbing beat. Eric Young Jr. served as a catalyst, doubling and homering in his first two at-bats as the Rockies raced to a 5-0 lead. Bichette was the least surprised. “We are going to hit,’’ Bichette said. “You go through periods like this. You have to remain calm and trust yourself.’’

Rotation revolving? Juan Nicasio’s name is written in pencil for Saturday’s start against the Giants. His lack of offspeed pitches suggests that a minorleague tune is in order, especially given the progress made by Drew Pomeranz and Tyler Chatwood. It’s clear that the Rockies are at least considering making a switch. Aaron Cook, a potential option

ROCKIES «FROM 1B ing at the team’s confidence a quarter into this surprising season. There was no panic. Just the opposite. As Rockies players finished a pregame meal in the phone booth that doubles as the visiting clubhouse, they talked about potential reasons for the slump. Some were suited for a family newspaper. Others were dripped in sarcasm — like blame the new guy, Nolan Arenado, who turned in another YouTube-worthy web gem in the eighth inning. At one point, Gonzalez suggested he would draw artwork on his bat to change the team’s luck. This wasn’t a group munching fingernails and slugging Pepto. “We will get it going,’’ said Gonzalez, who made good on his promise with two home runs and a career-high five hits. “You watch.’’ A few hours later, Eric Young Jr. led off with a double, a catalytic response that carried a charge through a convincing win. Every starting position player delivered a hit. Young homered off defenseless Cubs starter Carlos Villanueva, his first of the season. Gonzalez hit his eighth in the third inning and his ninth in the ninth, part of a career-best performance that lifted his average from .288 to .313. Troy Tulowitzki, who has played five straight games after

weeks ago, is dealing with a shoulder injury in Triple-A.

Oswalt update. Roy Oswalt threw 64 pitches in an extended spring game Tuesday, showing improved fastball command. He will start Saturday in Scottsdale, Ariz., then join Double-A Tulsa for at least three outings before being re-evaluated. Ideally, Oswalt is healthy and provides 15-18 starts for the Rockies this season. Footnotes. The Rockies have been scouring the independent leagues for minor-league pitching depth. They signed Sean Gallagher on Monday and will send him to Double-A Tulsa. … Infielder DJ LeMahieu is getting closer to a call-up as he tears up Triple-A pitching. Troy E. Renck: 303-954-1294, trenck or

resting his left leg, doubled twice, part of a 17-hit barrage. Francis’ revival was nearly as impressive as the offensive awakening. His rotation spot isn’t in jeopardy — Juan Nicasio’s clearly is with Tyler Chatwood and Drew Pomeranz ready in the minors — but there was a sense of urgency. The Rockies have stated repeatedly that they want their best 25 players on the roster, so

following that logic a 6.90 ERA is impossible to defend. Francis promptly lowered his ERA to 6.00 with his most impressive performance since winning the home opener. There was no wasted energy. He allowed just three hits and one run (a Darwin Barney homer) in 80 pitches, preying on the Cubs’ impatience with a well-located fastball. Colorado’s relievers and sloppy defense — Young dropped a

flyball and Edgmer Escalona airmailed a throw — gave the paid crowd of 38,123 a reason to delay exiting, but not the inevitable. The Rockies won with arm (Francis) and hammer (Gonzalez), both leaving an imprint rather than a trail of questions after a challenging stretch. “CarGo can do some really cool things,” Rockies hitting instructor Dante Bichette said. “The trick is not to panic.”

Top-seeded Penguins take 1-0 series lead By Will Graves The Associated Press

pittsburgh» Paul Martin and Chris Kunitz scored power-play goals and Pascal Dupuis added his sixth goal of the playoffs as the Pittsburgh Penguins beat the Ottawa Senators 4-1 in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals Tuesday. Evgeni Malkin extended his points streak to seven games with a goal and an assist for Pittsburgh. Tomas Vokoun stopped 35 shots to win his third straight start, and top-seeded Pittsburgh never trailed. Colin Greening scored for the Senators. Craig Anderson made 26 saves, but Ottawa had no answer for Pittsburgh’s power play. The Penguins are 9-of-24 with the man advantage through seven playoff games, best of the eight teams remaining in the postseason. The Senators had the NHL’s best penalty kill during the regular season and turned aside 16-of-19 penalties

against Montreal in the first round. Pittsburgh was pushed to six games by the New York Islanders during a spirited firstround series in which the youthful Islanders had the Penguins on their heels at times. Still, Pittsburgh advanced to the conference semifinals for the first time in three years behind the power play and a gutsy move by coach Dan Bylsma to bench top goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury and replace him with Vokoun. The 36-year-old Vokoun made his 713th NHL start on Tuesday, but his first with the stakes this big. Despite admitting to some butterflies when told he would get the starting assignment for Game 1, Vokoun overcame some shaky moments early to settle down. Pittsburgh didn’t need to wait long to get a chance to put the power play to work. Ottawa’s Kyle Turris drew a high-sticking penalty before the game was 90 seconds old, and barely a minute later, Pittsburgh jumped in front.

Hot Pacers move within win of ousting Knicks The Associated Press

indianapolis» The Indiana Pacers finally figured it out. When given the chance to take command of a playoff series, they can’t give it back. On Tuesday night, they didn’t. George Hill scored 26 points and Paul George had 18 points, 14 rebounds and seven assists, leading the Pacers past the New York Knicks 93-82 and to within one win of their first conference finals appearance since 2004. “We wanted it,” George said. “For us to come out with that edge, still, after being up 2-1 and being on our floor for Game 4, for us to be up and ready and have an edge to play, it just speaks to how focused we are right now.” Desperate New York tried everything to change the script.

Nothing worked. Kenyon Martin played 29 minutes and J.R. Smith logged 31½ despite missing practice Sunday and Monday because they were ill. Guard Iman Shumpert started even with a sore and swollen left knee that had the Knicks so worried they brought an orthopedic doctor to Indy to examine it Tuesday. The doctor determined there was no structural damage. Amar’e Stoudemire was called for four fouls in 11-plus minutes in his second game back since March 7 and had only four points and four rebounds. NBA scoring champion Carmelo Anthony finished with 24 points before fouling out with 2 minutes left in the game after shooting 9-for-23 from the field. He took only four shots in the fourth quarter and was held

without a basket over the final 12 minutes for the second straight game.

Spurs 109, Warriors 91 B san antonio» Tony Parker had 25 points and 10 assists, Tim Duncan had 14 points and 11 rebounds, and San Antonio took a 3-2 series lead over Golden State in its Western Conference semifinals matchup. The Spurs led 54-51 at halftime and used a 29-21 thirdquarter advantage to pull away from the Warriors, who were led by Harrison Barnes 25 points. The Spurs held Mark Jackson’s self-proclaimed “greatest shooting backcourt” in NBA history to 6-for-22 shooting. Stephen Curry finished with nine points, going 1-for-7 on 3-pointers, and Klay Thompson was held to four while not even attempting a 3.

WADE QUESTIONABLE FOR GAME 5 AGAINST BULLS miami» Heat star Dwyane Wade received extensive treatment Tuesday on his bruised right knee and is considered questionable for Game 5 against the Bulls on Wednesday. Miami coach Erik Spoelstra said Wade will be evaluated by the team’s medical staff after treatment throughout Tuesday and Wednesday before his playing status is determined.

KISZLA «FROM 1B The peeps would probably nominate Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning. The young man behind the curtain, pulling the most levers on the future of Denver sports, however, is Kroenke. The most unassuming mover-andshaker you will ever meet has already traded Carmelo Anthony away from the Nuggets and ended the Lacroix dynasty with the Avalanche. Kroenke is open for business 24/7. I’ve sat at a restaurant table where the sake flowed, and Kroenke was too obsessed by his work to take a sip. If Nuggets general manager Masai Ujiri receives a text in the middle of the night, there’s no need to check the source. “After we lost Game 6 to the Warriors, I was up until about 6 in the morning. I was awake, revisiting different situations, different plays and different conversations throughout the season. I’m trying to process everything. It’s a lot to process. At least it is for me. And, if I don’t go over it 100 times in my head, I can’t let it go,” said

Kroenke, describing the night Denver was eliminated by Golden State in the opening round of the NBA playoffs. “I’m very analytical. I’m very observant. And I like to break down what I’m observing. It’s fun for me to work in the sports world, because I can be analytical constantly. But, at different times of the year, it does kind of bite you, because there is too much to process. And you wind up not sleeping.” His mom is Ann Walton Kroenke, an heiress to the Walmart fortune and worth $4.5 billion, according to Forbes. His father is Stan Kroenke, builder of shopping centers, collector of ranches and sports magnate who’s worth an estimated $5 billion. Young Kroenke is different from you and me. Well, at least me. Take me in the way back time machine, then supply me with a stack of cash taller than Mount Evans and my only question at 6 a.m. would be: Should I drive the Aston Martin DB9 home from da club or call the chauffeur to come pick me up in the Maybach? Folks who expect Josh Kroenke to act if he has all the money and all the answers in the world are disappointed. “I don’t act that way at all. I’m a very

humble person,” Kroenke said. “That’s how I was raised by my mom and dad. I’m an incredibly hard worker. I don’t like sitting idly by and let other people do things. I’m wired to work hard. And I don’t think it’s going away anytime soon.” Here’s my theory: Stan Kroenke married into the Walmart fortune, but couldn’t sleep until his own labor posted a net worth with at least nine zeroes and three commas on the scoreboard. The father bought a sports empire that extends from the Rams in St. Louis to Arsenal in London. Now, Stan’s son cannot rest until he brings the joy of victory parades to Denver. “We have a much different personality. But we’re wired the same way,” said the Nugs and Avs president, who heard every rich kid’s joke money can buy long before he took possession of the big chair in the Pepsi Center. For all the dollars at his disposal, Kroenke was wired without a sense of entitlement. And that was true from the time I first met Josh, when he was a reserve guard with the Missouri Tigers who scored 236 points in his college career. “I’ve always tried to think through everything. And I think it was actually

a detriment to me as a player,” Kroenke said. “Because when you’re out there in competition, you have to be reacting, not weighing every option. The way my brain works affected me negatively as a player, but it’s a positive for everything I’m doing now.” Money can’t buy wisdom or respect. “There are times when I have to prove and assert myself, and I very much understand that,” Kroenke said. “I’m still young in this industry, and I’m well aware of that.” He grew up shooting jump shots to make himself a player. Avalanche fans grump Kroenke loves basketball more than hockey. His passion is winning. I asked the young chief executive of the Nuggets and Avalanche: So when you become a father somewhere down the line, what sport will you kids play? Hockey? Or basketball? Kroenke replied, “It will be of their choosing.” The richest life is the one you make rather than inherit. Mark Kiszla: 303-954-1053, or

Fishing report. From the state’s lakes, reservoirs and rivers. »


Changes with weather

Denver Post Columnist

Warm weather has turned on the bass and crappie fishing as they start into spawn. Consider leaving bedding fish alone and concentrate on nearby drop-off and weed edges for pre- and post-fish. Smallmouth anglers are finding great action at Aurora and at Horsetooth. Pueblo Reservoir has heated up with anglers catching bass, walleye and even a few wiper on a variety of baits. Walleye anglers are doing fairly with jigs at Carter, Bear Creek and Chatfield (good smallmouth option also). Granby has iced off and offers a good shot to for a shallow lake trout using big streamers or tossing spoons.

Time to spring ahead for bears? I

avon» Whether you rely on the National Weather Service, tea leaves or Chinese philosophy when it comes to coping with Colorado’s spring runoff, one thing is certain this week: It’s on. After winter’s late run put spring on ice into May, temperatures in the high country have suddenly spiked, triggering a rise in river levels as a massive meltdown gets underway. The Eagle River below Beaver Creek Resort, for example, rose roughly 1,000 cubic feet per second since the weekend. Below the Eagle’s Confluence with the Colorado, the increase in water flow was more than 1,500 cfs. Similar spikes can be seen on the Yampa, White, Roaring Fork and other freestone rivers across the state. As for how long it may last, that’s where those tea leaves and tarot cards can come in handy. “That’s always the biggest guess,” said Matt Sprecher, owner of Minturn Anglers on the bank of the upper Eagle River. “I think it will surprise people with how long it comes down this year. I’m guessing we have a month of heavy runoff before everybody is really comfortable with fishing and is having some luck. Even as a wade fisherman, it’s really strong current and your flies are just buzzing by. I’m thinking mid-June, which was pretty common in the past.” Downstream at John Packer’s Fly Fishing Outfitters shop in Avon, the prediction is a little sooner. “I use the old local indicator of the snow in Game Creek Bowl (on Vail Mountain) or the high bowl in the Gore Range. Once that snow goes, good fishing levels are usually a couple days out,” Packer said. “There’s still a lot up high right now, but just based on the fact that the ground is so dry you have to think a good chunk of it will go straight into the ground. If it’s really going in earnest now, it will be maybe three weeks, then drop. I think it could be a quicker runoff.” Three weeks, four weeks, maybe more, maybe less. Such predictions are minor consolation to eager anglers ready to wet a line and take advantage of kind mountain weather. Fortunately, there are options. “The upper Colorado below Pumphouse is still fishing well. Caddis are coming off and they’re holding back the water from the Williams Fork

and the Blue below Green Mountain Reservoir,” Packer said. “It will be really good if it gets over 1,000 cfs to get the salmonflies going.” “The salmonflies should be coming up in a week or so on the Colorado, we hope,” Sprecher said. “But it’s almost like elk hunting, really. You’re not going to get an elk every year and you’re not going to catch the salmonfly hatch on the Colorado every year either. You just have to keep trying and hope the conditions are right.” Both outfitters also make use of mountain lakes for fishing this time of year, along with reliable tailwaters such as the Blue River in Silverthorne, Frying Pan River in Basalt and Homestake Creek above Red Cliff. A quick check of U.S. Geological Survey gauges along the South Platte River indicates that water is being held back in the reservoirs from Spinney Mountain on down to Cheesman, and the reservoirs themselves offer ample opportunity for fish. Although the upper Arkansas River is rising steadily, the promised recreational rafting releases of 700-plus cfs have yet to arrive for the summer and the river has been fishing well. As the snowmelt pushes into late May, however, members of the Arkansas River Outfitter Association say they expect runoff to crank up soon and linger a little longer. “A key factor that plays out in May just about every year is the changing of the sun angle on the high elevation snowfields,” said Bob Hamel, owner of Arkansas River Tours. “This brings down whatever snow is there, no matter the amount of snow that is present. Of course other factors contribute like wind, dust in the snowpack, etc. Front Range weather is not always indicative of what is occurring up high. That is why we are keenly observant of the high elevation and monitor headwater Snotel sites.” Once the high water hits in earnest, anglers would do well to employ the yin-and-yang philosophy and remember that these seemingly contrary forces are actually interconnected and complementary. Whenever one quality reaches its peak, it naturally begins to transform into the opposite. And that’s a good thing. “After the low water last year, we really need the runoff. So it’s going to be good,” Packer said. “We need a good flush. It’s going to clean out the river a little bit.”

t turns out the elephant in the room is a bear. Colorado’s black bear issue — that being the apparent overpopulation and steady increase of humanbear encounters and property damage — has been danced around for more than a decade now, more than two if you trace it back to the 1992 voter ban of spring bear hunting. Measure 10, as it was known, also banned the use of dogs and bait by bear hunters and was approved by more than 70 percent of state voters when it was passed. Some sportsmen maintain that it was also the beginning of Colorado’s bear troubles. “We never had any bear problem in Colorado until the citizens decided that they understood biology better than our game biologists,” Bud Hughes, a longtime resident hunter recently commented via e-mail. “Colorado used to run a high bear kill, but 80-plus percent were killed in the spring hunt over bait. By the time big game season starts, barring unusually warm weather, 75 percent of the bears are in hibernation. They rarely stick around past the first snow.” The other problem with hunting bears solely in the fall is an unforeseen ethical issue, Hughes noted. Many fall bear licenses are bought strictly as insurance so that hunters can legally continue to hunt with their party even after filling an elk or deer tag. If a bear stumbles into a hunter’s crosshairs before an elk or deer, it’s unlikely he’ll pull the trigger. Too many shots will quickly scatter the preferred prey. Most folks don’t like to acknowledge these issues any more than they want to hear that a record 628 black bears were killed through nonhunter mortality last year, more than half of those being at the hands of wildlife officers or ranchers legally defending their livestock and property. The thought of potentially orphaning a bear cub in spring is even sadder to consider, although current laws already outlaw shooting a sow bear with cubs at any time. The considerable tax money spent on relocation and extermination of problem bears is also easily buried when the cute photos begin circulating around the Internet of fuzzy black balls in trees and even trash cans. It’s an issue as politically toxic as gun control. That didn’t stop Rep. J. Paul Brown, an Ignacio Republican, from presenting a bill in 2011 that would have allowed the then Division of Wildlife to allow bear hunting whenever it deemed necessary. The bill surprised many when it made it past the House Ag Committee, then fizzled out on the floor. Alaska, Arizona, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Utah, Washington and Wyoming currently are the only states that allow spring bear hunts. The eventual result here in Colorado is a 20 percent increase in black bear hunting tags in 2013, with a statewide mortality objective of 2,153 bears for the year. That number is unlikely to be attained, of course. Despite increased hunter success rates (2 to 6 percent higher) in the past five years, hunters harvested only 1,172 bears in 2012, up 175 from the year prior. But according to Colorado Parks and Wildlife carnivore manager Jerry Apker, the steady increase in fall bear tags and subsequent rise in hunter success rates have taken a toll on the black bear population. It seems that Coloradans will continue to dance around this touchy topic for at least a few more years, long enough for the bear counts to establish a reliable trend or the conflicts and nonhunt mortality to surpass the boiling point of social tolerance. It has been more than 20 years since that 70 percent spoke its mind at the polls. Still, it will demand some bravery to wrestle that beast.

MaryBeth Sant will transform from a Valor Christian Eagle into an Oregon Duck this coming fall when she goes to Eugene for college. John Leyba, The Denver Post

TRACK «FROM 1B It was her father who noticed MaryBeth’s unusual speed as a young soccer player. Concerned about the collisions on the pitch, he suggested his daughter try track. MaryBeth ran her first race at Legacy Stadium in Aurora at age 10 and had a victory over Dior Hall, an age-group national champion and now a star hurdler at George Washington High School and the daughter of former Colorado hurdles champion Yolanda Johnson, who never lost a high school race. It was the beginning of a love affair. MaryBeth passed on soccer to concentrate on sprinting in middle school. She flourished on the club circuit and, like her two sisters, enrolled at Chaparral High School. After her freshman season, her parents decided a change was in order, and had her transfer to Valor in order to be exposed to college prep courses and get in touch with her faith. “She was concerned,” her father politely recalled. Actually, his daughter confessed: “I didn’t want to go here. … I loved Chaparral and my friends there. But I’m thanking my parents today for sure.” As a sophomore, Sant finished second

in both the Class 4A 100 and 200. She won both races as a junior, in addition to helping the 800 relay team take first. “Sometimes it looks like she’s running a different race,” longtime Mullen track coach John Hancock said. College scouts took notice. She has signed a letter of intent to attend Oregon, in Track Town USA (Eugene), and will take with her a 3.5 grade-point average and aspirations of becoming a sports broadcaster, as well as an NCAA champion and Olympian. “It’s my dream. My No. 1 goal is to go to the Olympics,” she said. Kula, who has seen Sant mature and overcome “typical teenager-type of stuff,” won’t be surprised if she sweeps again Saturday, and perhaps threatens the alltime bests in the 100 (11.34) and 200 (23.36) on Saturday at Jefferson County Stadium in Lakewood. Sant has a personal record of 23.91 in the 200. “One thing that’s concerning is Jeffco’s not a traditionally screaming fast track,” Kula said. “But she can do it. She doesn’t feel pressure for the state meet, because she’s run in bigger meets. She can do it.” Said Sant, “It would be awesome.” Neil H. Devlin: 303-954-1714, or


Lopez scores winner off Billups’ assist VALOR CHRISTIAN 1, AIR ACADEMY 0, 2OT By Neil H. Devlin The Denver Post

highlands ranch» Amanda Lopez will take an injury after a thrilling, gamewinning score any day. The freshman found herself in front of the goal Tuesday night with less than a half-minute to play in the second overtime vs. defending champion Air Academy in the Class 4A quarterfinals. Among a bevy of bodies of traffic, Lopez headed in a pass from fellow freshman Cydney Billups 27 seconds before heading to a shootout. The shot went past Kadets goalie Allison Neary as the Eagles snagged a 1-0 decision in double overtime. Valor Christian (11-2-4) will meet Cheyenne Mountain on Saturday at Sports Authority Stadium. Air Academy ended 12-4-2. Said Lopez said of her header: “Most of

my goals have come from passes from Cydney. We work together so well.” Billups, daughter of Colorado basketball legend Chauncey Billups, was trying to keep possession in the right corner, had some difficulty, then lofted a sharp high pass that Lopez converted, “I lost it, then just ran for it,” Billups said of a loose ball. “I was just able to get it. It was a perfect cross. She got her head on it and it was the perfect finish.” Perfect enough that Eagles teammates buried Lopez under a pile in front of the Kadets goal. She said her right ankle will be fine and her score capped what had been an extremely tight match. Valor Christian applied pressure after halftime. Billups got off two rocket shots left of the goal, but Neary, stellar throughout, was equal. Plus, Valor had a lot of moments shooting wide or too high, and when the Eagles — miffed at the officiating — got the ball to the middle, the Kadets’ defense consistently cleared.

It was the third consecutive day an Andretti driver posted the fastest time. … Peter Sagan of Slovakia sprinted to the Stage 3 win and Colombian Janier Acevedo maintained the bicycle race lead as strong winds replaced the heat at the Tour of California. … Texas guard Julien Lewis was granted his release and will become the third player to leave the Longhorns since they finished a disappointing season 16-18 and missed the NCAA women’s tournament for the first time in 15 years. … The America’s Cup will go on as planned after the death of a sailor during a training run last week on San Francisco Bay, officials announced at a news conference in San Francisco. … Atlanta released guard Ketia Swanier and forward Blanche Alverson, leaving the WNBA’s Dream with 14 players.

Time was, you could pretty much count on just three types of food when you visited a major-league ballpark: Hot dogs, peanuts and, as the seventhinning anthem tells us, Cracker Jack. This was back in the day when the only people in the stadium who wore baseball caps backward were the catchers. Things change. The modern ballpark is a sea of food vendors, from food carts to full-blown restaurants. The options are such that even a famed trencherman-athlete like Babe Ruth would find his head spinning, and not just from the cocktail options. Here in Denver, Coors Field is at the forefront of this movement, with nearly 100 food outlets. Yes, you can still buy traditional fare. But you’ll also find barbecue smoked on site, chicken breasts stuffed with pine nuts and sundried tomatoes, fresh berry kabobs drizzled with white chocolate, and a 32-item salad bar. BALLPARK » 3C

Dining Out Beast + Bottle

Nothing beastly here: Ingredients and interior get delicate treatment By William Porter The Denver Post

The small, squat building near the corner of East 17th Avenue and Clarkson Street has housed some fine restaurants in its time. Aix and Olivéa had their seasons there. Before that there was The Biscuit, Sean Kelly’s breakfast spot, and Petit Louis. Now comes Beast + Bottle. While it might be a tad premature to say so

— the place is scarcely two months old — this incarnation might be the best restaurant yet to grace this space, which is saying something. Beast + Bottle is the encore of the folks who ran Encore, siblings Paul and Aileen Reilly. He’s the executive chef, she’s the general manager and front-of-the-house presence. The restaurant name conjures visions of a pig-centric menu and oceans of bourbon. This isn’t the mission at all.

• Maps and shows, videos of interactive national parks features

Yes, there is meat on the menu. But seafood, poultry and vegetable dishes also take their turn on center stage. The menu is tightly edited, typically boasting about 20 plates of varying sizes. It is also creative. Clever combos include lamb sweetbreads with root vegetable hash, an English pea souffle, and monkfish with braised leeks and fava beans. All this is underpinned with a delicate French twist, both in ingre-

Digest by Douglas Brown, The Denver Post

Frasca and Jasinski win Beard Awards; Archive Room in Arvada ups its game


ou want a big deal? Here they are — two of them. Frasca Food and Wine

in Boulder won the James Beard Foundation Award last week for the most outstanding wine program in the United States. And Jennifer Jasinski, the owner/chef at Rioja, Bistro Vendome, and Euclid Hall in Denver, won the Beard award for the best chef in the Southwest. Congratulations! Both restaurants opened in 2004, and the people who work these rooms have toiled ever since. They deserve every scrap of recognition. In an upcoming Digest column, I will interview Jennifer Jasinski about her food. But this week, Frasca. I spent part of an afternoon at Frasca last week, talking with the wine team — owner/master sommelier Bobby Stuckey, wine director Matthew Mather, and sommelier Carlin Karr — about what makes the Frasca program the best in America. Better than the expense-account wine playgrounds in New York. Better than the wine-geek palaces in San Francisco. After the restaurant expanded in size, in 2010, “we wanted to get deeper into the essence of Friuli, and we did. We started getting wines that nobody else has,” said Mather. “Their job is studying, tasting, reading, finding things, then getting an importer to get it to Colorado, then getting a distributor to bring it to us,” said Stuckey, of Mather and Karr. “The distributor then gets paid for this work that we do. We do it all for our guests. You can drink more crazy Italian wine here than you can in big cities.”

When the team hired Karr, who had been working as a sommelier in San Francisco, she had a tough time prepping for the new job at Frasca. The good Friuli wines — the northern Italian region borders Austria and Slovenia — were hard to find, even in wine-obsessed San Francisco. Now, a year into her Frasca experience, Carlin appreciates the Frasca way. In San Francisco, Karr said, wine appreciation sometimes becomes “all about what is the most interesting, the weirdest wines, rather than what is the best,” she said. “This has been the biggest takeaway from Frasca. Focusing and homing in on true quality. And analyzing what is in the glass rather than the romance of why it is so interesting or how rare it is. Those things are not about giving the guest the very best thing, which is what is so special about Frasca. I was shocked by how long Bobby and Matthew spend at tables with guests.” While we talked, the wine team shared three wines with me, paired with different things. First up, a Friulano varietal (a white wine) paired with the Friuli version of prosciutto, called Prosciutto di San Daniele. The combination is a Frasca classic. “The wine is rich, and with the proscuitto it has a snap, which coaxes more acidity out of the wine,” said Mather. I could spend the rest of my life nibbling that proscuitto and sipping the wine. The wine and pork were wonderful on their own, but paired they were out of this world. They then handed me a much different white from Friuli, a blend containing 70 percent Friulano and a few other varietals, paired with a

gnocchi with a quail ragu. “With this pairing, it’s texture and texture,” said Stuckey. “You need white with texture, without being flabby. This dish is rich, but if you had a low acid wine, like a California chardonnay that was sweet with oak and other flavors, you would have the weight but the dish would not be refreshing. You need a weighty wine but one with acidity. This wine doesn’t have any oak on it, it’s not trying to be a tropical smoothie.” Finally, they brought out a sangiovese, paired with a beef and horseradish dish. “When sangiovese is unadorned with new wood, it has this great savor,” said Mather. “I smell it, and it makes me hungry. It smells like oregano and rosemary and cherries and sun-dried tomatoes. It has a beautiful tart, crisp acidity.” Sip. Bite. Sip. Three pairings, and I understand why Frasca got the Beard nod. The next time I have something to celebrate, I’m headed to the little slice of Friuli on Pearl Street in Boulder., a former dive sports bar that has become an ambitious dining destination. Chef Aaron Youngblood, most recently of Elway’s in Cherry Creek, took over the kitchen about six months ago and began making changes. When he started, the approach was “freezer to fryer,” TVs everywhere, and an ocean of Bud Lite, said Youngblood while we chatted in a pleasant lounge area beside sidewalkfacing windows. Now, it’s small-plates galore, grass-fed beef, housemade cheeses, 30 Colorado beers, a buoyant wine program (previously, it was just Mondavi), and things like panseared duck and clam risotto. “This is where we always wanted to go,” said owner Jeff Arnold. “Now we are confident the neighborhood wants

us.” The team closed the restaurant for three days in March and spent nearly all of those 72 hours inside, overhauling the décor and prepping for the launch of the new menu. Diners accustomed to the cheesesteakand-fries place were startled; the changes angered some. But other Arvadans embraced the new Archive Room, with its from-scratch cocktail ingredients, its not-from-a-box noodles (Youngblood makes every ounce of pasta that is served) and its from-the-farm focus. “We want to use the whole animal in our dishes, and we want to rotate the menu monthly,” said Youngblood, 35, an Aurora native. “We want nearly everything to come from 200 miles of the restaurant.” The restaurant has a com-

munity-garden space now, and will begin growing its own veggies and herbs. Youngblood gets his beef from Salida, and is shopping around for sources of other Colorado meats. The menu’s clam dishes will never involve the word “local,” but that’s OK for clam freaks like me. As a clam freak, I sometimes am a sad man, because I don’t often see clams on Front Range menus. Youngblood loves the mollusks too, and has them in the risotto, in a broth with bison sausage, and in tacos. I tried a fried clam taco. With one chew, I was a happy man.

Crusty scallops bed down on spinach Peanut-Coconut Crusted Scallops Serve with a bone-dry, crisp, light-as-air French muscadet white wine. Makes 2 servings.

Ingredients 3 tablespoons dry-roasted, unsalted peanuts ¼ cup desiccated coconut flakes ¾ pound scallops 2 teaspoons canola oil 3 cups washed, ready-to-eat spinach 2 tablespoons “lite” coconut milk Salt and freshly ground pepper

Directions Chop peanuts and coconut flakes in a food processor and place on a plate. Roll scallops in the mixture, making sure all sides are covered. Heat canola oil over medium-high heat in a nonstick skillet. Add scallops and sauté 1½ minutes; turn and sauté 1½ minutes. The scallops will be seared and continue to cook in their own heat off the stove. Place them on a plate and add the spinach to the pan. Cook until the spinach is wilted, about 2 minutes. Add the coconut milk and salt and pepper to taste. Divide spinach between 2 dinner plates and place scallops on top.

Coconut-Carrot Rice Makes 2 servings. Ingredients 1 cup shredded carrots 1 package microwaveable rice (1½ cups cooked rice needed) ½ cup “lite” coconut milk Salt and freshly ground pepper

Directions Place carrots in a bowl. Cook rice according to package instructions. Measure 1½ cups cooked rice and add to the bowl with the carrots. (Reserve any remaining rice for another meal.) Add the coconut milk and salt and pepper to taste. Per serving: 225 calories (15 percent from fat), 3.8 g fat (2.0 g saturated, 0.1 g monounsaturated), no cholesterol, 4.6 g protein, 44.5 g carbohydrates, 2.2 g fiber, 55 mg sodium.

Chopped peanuts and flaked coconut form a savory-sweet crust for fresh scallops. Sauté the scallops and serve them on a bed of sautéed spinach flavored with coconut milk. Rice microwaved for a minute, tossed with shredded carrots and also flavored with coconut milk makes a quick side dish. The carrots get slightly cooked in the heat of the cooked rice. The secret to making sweet, juicy scallops is to sear them for 1 ½ minutes on each side. They will be translucent in the center and continue to cook off the heat. Coconut milk is made by mixing shredded coconut with boiling water, letting it steep

and then straining it. “Lite” coconut milk is available, and it works well in this recipe. Helpful hints: Chop the peanuts and coconut flakes together in a food processor. Make scallops and spinach in the same skillet. Use white or brown microwaveable rice. Find shredded or matchstick carrots in the produce section of the market.

The best pasta primavera sticks with the season The combination of pasta and a garnish of crisp vegetables is associated with Sirio Maccioni, the legendary owner of the New York restaurant Le Cirque, which has existed in various incarnations since the ’70s. If the dish seemed revolutionary at the time, from today’s perspective, when we look at his original recipe, it is a reminder of how different things are today. Sirio was — is — one of the last reminders of a restaurant era that was marked by the maître d’/proprietor as a kind of haughty doorman and pitiless social arbiter. Although Sirio was from Tuscany, the dish is by no means the kind of authentic pasta he grew up eating. The dish is busy, something Italian food never is. Although it calls itself “primavera,” which of course means “spring,” it doesn’t display the Italian respect for seasonality. Sirio’s original recipe calls for spaghetti with lightly cooked vegetables in a tomato cream sauce garnished with pine nuts. The vegetables are an assortment of spring and summer produce — zucchini and basil, as well as snow peas and asparagus. But the basic idea — al dente pasta, creamy sauce, crunchy vegetables — is a sound one and is, I think, better if made with exclusively seasonal vegetables and brightened with a little pancetta, lemon zest and chile flakes. John Broening is a chef at Spuntino in Denver. E-mail:

beer “Most people hate the taste of beer — to begin with. It is, however, a prejudice that many people have been able to overcome.” Winston Churchill (May 13-19 is American Craft Beer week)

BALLPARK «FROM 1C There is an on-site brewery and even an herb and vegetable garden, the first in a major-league park. “We’ve taken a lot of pride in being on the cutting edge of this movement,” said Richard Hesse, regional director of operations for Aramark, Coors Field’s concessionaire. “We’ve tried to keep up with these trends because that’s what folks are looking for.” Last year the stadium took a cue from the food-truck craze and brought in Wok in the Park, a kitchen-on-wheels that specializes in Asian noodle bowls. And just to show the locals that Coors Field respects regional tastes, you can buy a bison dog and elk sausage, plus a plate of Rocky Mountain oysters. The latter look like fried zucchini, and if you’re allergic to shellfish, let’s just say that it will not be an issue with this dish. “It’s not our top seller, but it’s been on the menu for 19 years,” Hesse said. Not that Aramark, which operates in 11 major-league parks, is turning its back on old-school

ballpark food. The company estimated it sold 11,000 hot dogs at Coors Field on Opening Day to go along with 2,825 bags of peanuts. There was also a major chile-pepper slaughter, given that 3,100 orders of nachos were sold. (“The Silence of the Jalapeños”?) This year, concession chef Daniel Albert and his crew developed Sausage on a Stick. It’s just what it sounds like, skewered like a corn dog but without the coating. The options: a smoked cheddar wurst, spicy Polish and Italian. Fans of Mexican food will find a smothered empanada topped with green chile and pico de gallo. In a recessed food court on the third-base side of the main concourse, new dishes get their rookie debuts. It’s akin to a culinary spring training camp. “This is like an R&D area,” said Al Wolfe, Aramark’s general manager for Coors Field. “We try out a lot of things, gauging the response of people. Last year we tried the smoked brisket bacon melt. It was a huge hit. This year it’s the Rocky Mountain ribeye melt with horseradish Havarti cheese. “It’s started out well and is growing,” said Wolfe. A stone-fired pizza oven turns out pies, including a tasty margherita version with mozzarella,

tomatoes and basil. The Mountain Ranch Bar & Grille in Coors Field’s right-field corner has proved a popular spot, one open to anyone with a ticket. With two open-air tiers, visitors can watch Dexter Fowler patrolling center field when they’re not downing deep-fried avocado, guacamole made tableside, a mahi mahi sandwich or roasted mushroom strudel with goat cheese. The hops-averse can order a glass of Kendall-Jackson chardonnay. Another favored venue over the past four years has been the Helton Burger Shack. The signature item is named for the Rockies’ long-time star first baseman. “We worked with Todd for the exact blend of meats and the sauce,” Hesse said. “It’s a mix of brisket, shoulder and sirloin.” On a recent evening’s visit to the dining room that serves clubhouselevel ticket holders, the buffet in the upscale but casual setting included chicken stuffed with asparagus and tomatoes, dried fruit and wild rice salad, scalloped potatoes and an array of cheeses that would make a high-end cheesemonger nod approvingly. Swordfish is on the menu. A carving station rotates through tenderloin, pork loin and, on Sundays, ham.

“And there’s a hot dog grill, because even in here, everyone wants a hot dog,” Hesse said. “They’re a favorite, and not just for the youngsters.” Count Karen Silveira of Arvada a fan. She was in the Longs Peak Suite along the first-base line on a recent evening, watching the Rox play the Tampa Bay Rays with a group of female friends. “They have the best food here,” she said of the row of chafing dishes along one wall, including one with braised pork and avocado. “Just beautiful food.” Given this is a ballpark named after a Colorado-based beer conglomerate, a nod to craft brewing seems logical. Coors’ Blue Moon division has a brewery on site. Among the output is a beer called Batch 19, a pre-Prohibition style lager, and the tap room is now open on non-game days. “Baseball is an experiential thing that includes everything that happens after you get to the ballpark,” Hesse said. “And a big part of that is food and drink.” William Porter: 303-954-1877, or

Tagliatelle Primavera Serves 4-6.

Ingredients 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil 3 tablespoons finely chopped pancetta ¼ cup finely chopped ramps or 3 tablespoons finely sliced garlic 1 cup thinly sliced asparagus Salt ¼ cup dry white wine ¼ cup shelled cooked fava beans ¼ cup shelled cooked English peas ¼ cup chicken broth ¼ cup heavy cream 2 tablespoons unsalted butter Finely grated zest of 1 lemon Pinch chile flakes 1 pound tagliatelle ½ cup grated parmesan Freshly ground pepper

Directions In a Dutch oven, heat the olive oil to medium, add the pancetta and ramps or garlic. Cook 3-4 minutes until softened but not colored. Add the asparagus and a pinch of salt and cook 1 minute. Add the white wine and bring to a full boil. Add the fava beans, peas, chicken broth and heavy cream and reduce to sauce consistency. Swirl in the butter and mix in the lemon zest and chile flakes. Meanwhile bring a large pot of salted water to a rolling boil. Add the tagliatelle and cook until al dente. Drain the pasta, leaving a little bit of the cooking water clinging to it. Toss the pasta into the sauce and cook 1 minute over low heat. Add a little more pasta water if the sauce is too thick. Fold in the cheese and pepper. Divide among 4 to 6 warm bowls. Garnish with a little extra cheese. Serve immediately.

TODAY’S CLUE: Q EQUALS O | The Cryptoquip is a substitution cipher in which one letter stands for another. If you think that X equals O, it will equal O throughout the puzzle. Single letters, short words and words using an apostrophe give you clues to locating vowels. (5-15-13)

Most players would admit that defenders often face unpleasant guesses. If you don’t count declarer’s












hand, good defense is impossible. Cover today’s East and South cards. Defend as West. You lead two high clubs, and East plays the nine and deuce, declarer the ten and queen. What next? On the bidding, South will have six hearts and four spades. His cue bid of three diamonds acted as the Stayman convention; if South had only hearts, he would have just bid four hearts at his first turn. West’s best chance for a fourth trick is in trumps. He must cash the king of diamonds at Trick Three and next lead a third club. East ruffs with the jack of trumps, winning the setting trick. (But if West led a club at Trick Three, South could survive by pitching his diamond loser as East ruffed.)

West’s defense would lose if South had J 7 4 3, 10 9 6 5 3 2, A, Q 10. Should West expect that East bid two diamonds, vulnerable, with a suit headed by the jack? That’s where guessing comes in. Daily Question: You hold: & 9 6 5 h Q 4 ( K 10 2 $ A K 8 7 5. Your partner opens one diamond, you bid two clubs and he raises to three clubs. What do you say? Answer: Your partner’s bidding may be based on minimum values, and it’s possible you have no good game contract. Nevertheless, partner may not be expecting you to pass. He may have a promising hand such as A K, 8 7, A Q 8 7 6, Q 9 3 2. Bid three diamonds and see what else he has to say.

Today’s GIANT ARRAY FORMAL MARSHY jumble: The “garden” was always in “danger” because it was — AN ANAGRAM



the denver post B B wednesday, may 15, 2013

Ask Amy by Amy Dickinson Dear Amy: Last year I became friends with a woman at work who, like me, was pregnant. We hung out a few times, and when I visited her house, I was shocked. Amy, I am not a neat freak, but I have never been anywhere so filthy. Her house was like an episode of “Hoarders.” Every surface — even the stairs — was covered in random papers, trash, dirty dishes, clothes, boxes, recycling and so forth. In many rooms, the trash was 2 feet deep and covered the entire floor. You had to wade through it. I said nothing. Since then, we have both had our babies, and she has been

asking to get together. She brought her baby to my house once, but now she is insistent that we must come to her. She has called me five times in six days asking when we will come over, each time becoming more insistent. Amy, I do not want to bring my daughter there because I believe it is a health hazard. I have suggested that we meet at places like the library, but she keeps asking us to come over. I don’t know how to tell her that I cannot bring my infant daughter over to play in a trash heap. I

LUANN by Greg Evans

also wonder if I should call Child Protective Services because this environment is also dangerous for her baby. How would you suggest I deal with this? — Not a Neat Freak Dear Not: I wonder if this

other mom is so insistent on having you over because she has cleaned up her home. You can only find out by going. Choose a day when the weather is fine and you can keep the babies outside if necessary. If her house is merely messy (even very messy),

don’t worry about it. If it is still a trash heap like before and very obviously a physical and biohazard, you should call CPS and ask for guidance. Reporting a parent to Child Protective Services is a decision not to be taken lightly. Be prepared to answer questions with detailed descriptions of the hazard. If in your considered judgment this is a dangerous environment for the child, you should place the call. The household could be offered support services to maintain a healthier home. Dear Amy: I’ve been in a long-distance relationship for a little over a year now. Things

are pretty good, with the exception of one small problem. I want my boyfriend to change his status on Facebook from “single” to either “in a relationship” or simply listing no status. He claims that he wants his privacy. He says that Facebook isn’t real life. I think part of the problem may be that we dated in college and I dumped him but he told his friends that he dumped me, and now he doesn’t want to admit publicly that he’s dating me. My boyfriend claims that he’s told his friends and his family about us and it really is just about maintaining privacy on the Internet. Am I being unreasonable? —

Long-Distance Gal Dear Gal: Let’s sidestep the

question about how reasonable you are being and focus on the magnitude of your problem. It’s petty. As long as you and your guy define your current relationship in terms of who dumped whom the last time you broke up, you will continue to barter about his Facebook status. Imagine that you don’t care about his social network status. And then don’t care. Send questions via e-mail to or write to Ask Amy, Chicago Tribune, TT500, 435 N. Michigan Ave., Chicago, IL 60611.

dients and technique. While the rotating menu offers complex flavor pairings, it wears its ambitions lightly. And in a welcome departure in these locavore-centric times, the menu doesn’t flog you with the provenance of every ingredient like some culinary doctoral dissertation. The remodeled interior is as fresh as the menu. The bar has been lightened with white subway tiles and a few pale yellow accent inserts. The curvaceous bar improves patrons’ sightlines, and staffers must be de-

lighted to have the wine rack that once jammed the bar’s north wall moved overhead. Light pours in, and with warm weather upon us, the sidewalk patio is up and running. The waitstaff is engaged and engaging, with Aileen Reilly deftly working the room when she’s in hostess mode. Like Aix and Olivéa, Beast + Bottle does a brisk bar business. The restaurant has inherited many of the patrons who frequented those previous establishments, as well as Encore fans, and is also bringing in a crowd eager to try the food behind the buzz.

Above: the fig and pig flatbread with guanciale, gorgonzola and baby arugula. Right: fettuccine with watercress, peas, pine nuts and sheep’s milk cheese.

There’s a smart wine list with several by-the-glass offerings under $10, including a crisp gruner veltliner for $8. The cocktail program is a winner: Consider trying one of the several variations on the Moscow Mule, that refreshing concoction of vodka, ginger beer and lime juice. Small plates are an excellent way to start, and make for destination dishes in their own right if you feel like grazing. A salad of lola rossa, a curly red-leaf lettuce, came with dried cherries, candied pepitas, goat cheese and a white balsamic dressing. At $6, it was a whole lot of flavor and color. Another winner was a terrine of guinea hen ($13), paired with grilled escarole, sliced Fuji apples and a duck-fat vinaigrette. A dollop of prune mustard finished it. The meat was light but unctuous, and nearly made up for the loss of Olivea’s duck liver mousse, a silky slab with mission figs that at $5 was once the best happy-hour deal in Denver. Lamb sweetbreads ($11) were lightly crisped, with the sweetand-savory thymus glands offset with a root vegetable hash and marsala cream. A dish of scallops ($15), griddled until golden, came with creamy grits and a paprika gastrique; my only caveat with the dish was that the cubed bacon seemed a bit undercooked. Three flatbreads are typically on the menu. The fig and pig version ($12) featured a nicely charred and smoky crust that was just sturdy enough to serve as a platform for the sprinkling of guanciale

Highlands Ranch Town Center Square 9288 Dorchester St. 10am - 2pm or Sellout

(an unsmoked Italian-style bacon typically made with pig cheeks), gorgonzola and baby arugula. Less successful was a panroasted lamb ($28). I like my lamb medium-rare, but this dish was too rare. This subtracted some of the flavor of the grill and also made the slices a bit tough to chew. The set-up was lovely, however: grilled asparagus, fava beans, gold potatoes and ramps, with a shot of salsa verde. Fettuccine ($22) was a bowlful of springtime: A tangle of al dente pasta was mixed with English peas, watercress, pine nuts and cacio di roma, an Italian sheep’s milk cheese whose creaminess bound the dish in much the same way that eggs do in a good carbonara. With Beast + Bottle, the Reillys have a terrific addition to Denver’s Uptown neighborhood. And for folks who still miss the brunches once mounted at Encore, this upstart is serving them Friday-Sunday. That’s one more reason to get out of bed in the morning.

Honor Flight Network

The Greatest Generation

The Honor Flight Network, or HFN, was created to help America’s military veterans visit Washington free of charge, to spend time at the different memorials constructed in their honor, and to thank them for their service to our nation. Volunteers, veteran groups and various companies have helped the organization bring tens of thousands of veterans to our nation’s capital. May 18 is Armed Forces Day. To celebrate, The Mini Page spoke with a volunteer for HFN and a veteran who participated in an honor flight to learn more about the group and its mission.

For many years after World War II, veterans didn’t talk much to other people about their war experiences. But eventually people started to recognize the work and sacrifices of the men and women who now serve in our military, along with those of people who had served in the past. Americans wanted a monument to honor WWII veterans while they were still alive. Plans for a monument were approved by the end of the 1990s. Construction began in 2001, and in 2004, the National World War II Memorial was opened to the public. It is located on the National Mall between the Washington Monument and the Lincoln Memorial.

Have you ever heard adults talk about the “Greatest Generation”? The words are used to describe Americans who were kids during the Great Depression in the 1920s and ’30s and young adults during World War II. These events were two of the most difficult times of the 20th century. The Greatest Generation probably includes your great-grandparents. Many people in this generation served in the U.S. armed forces during World War II and other conflicts. As these veterans have grown older, many have not had a chance to visit war memorials in Washington, D.C.

Recognizing our veterans

John Liebmann participated in a tour with the Badger Honor Flight group from Madison, Wis., in October 2012. Liebmann served in the U.S. Army Air Forces (which later became the U.S. Air Force) during World War II. He is shown visiting the National World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C.

The National World War II Memorial includes two pavilions, a granite pillar to represent each U.S. state and territory during the war, and a Rainbow Pool.

Honoring Veterans Visiting their monument

When veterans arrive in Washington, D.C., they are given a rousing welcome. Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, current members of the armed forces, members of Congress and even other travelers stop to clap and cheer for the veterans.

photos courtesy Badger Honor Flight

The Honor Flight Network began in 2005. At first, the trips were made with small groups on small airplanes. However, interest quickly grew, and many honor flight groups were created across the country.

Volunteers lead the way for visiting veterans Today, the network includes 131 groups in 34 states. Each year, dozens of specially chartered commercial aircraft arrive in and around Washington, D.C., carrying thousands of veterans. Fundraisers such as bake sales, car washes and raffles raise money to pay for the cost of the flights, hotels and meals.

Stinson’s father, Don Normoyle, served as a bombardier/navigator on B-29s in the U.S. Army Air Corps during World War II. “He was never able to see the completed memorial with his own eyes,” she said. “It’s a privilege to help other WWII veterans realize his dream.”

Susan Stinson is a volunteer “guardian” with the HFN in Washington, D.C. As a guardian, she escorts a veteran for the duration of his or her visit, helping to make sure that the trip is a smooth one. Other guardians may accompany the veterans on their flights from their home states.

Rookie Cookie’s Recipe

Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Sandwiches

Mini Spy and her friends are greeting an honor flight soldier from World War II. See if you can find: • ruler • apple • safety pin • leaf • kite • comb • cat • letter E • letter D • word MINI • horse’s head • basket • penguin • pencil • letter C • letter B • letter A • number 7

You’ll need: • 1 (15.25-16.5-ounce) box dark chocolate cake mix • 3 cups mint chocolate ice cream (or another flavor) What to do: 1. Follow directions for cake mix, omitting the eggs. Batter will resemble brownie mix. 2. Divide into 12 equal portions on a greased cookie sheet. Press mounds down so “cookies” will be flat when baked. Bake according to cake box directions. 3. Allow cookies to cool completely. 4. On a square of plastic wrap, place one cookie and top with 1/2 cup ice cream. Top with another cookie and press to flatten. 5. Wrap sandwiches in plastic wrap and chill in freezer for several hours. You will need an adult’s help with this recipe. from The Mini Page © 2013 Universal Uclick

Supersport: Adrian Beltre Height: 5-11 Birthdate: 4-7-79 Weight: 220 Hometown: Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic

Adrian Beltre arrived in Texas two years ago and quickly became a star in the Lone Star State in 2012. The sharp-fielding third baseman won the Texas Rangers Player of the Year award and made his third All-Star team. Can he top his 2012 performance? Last season Beltre ranked third in the American League in batting average (.321), sixth in homers (36) and ninth in RBIs (102). It was the third straight season he drove in more than 100 runs. Beltre was born to play baseball. He signed a pro contract at age 15 and has competed for four big-league teams. He has also long supported charities in the U.S. and Dominican Republic. It’s no wonder he’s a big hit in Texas.

All the following jokes have something in common. Can you guess the common theme or category? Carrie: When do candles relax? Charlie: On wickends! Cory: Which would burn longer, a red candle or a green candle? Cassie: Neither — candles burn shorter! Cora: What did the candle say to the fire? Cesar: “Are you going out tonight?”

A race against time

photo courtesy National Park Service

The Washington Monument is the world’s tallest stone structure. It is 555 feet, 5 1/8 inches tall. It was completed in 1884 to honor the first U.S. president, George Washington. The monument was damaged during an earthquake in 2011. It is closed to the public until repairs are finished.

The National World War II Memorial includes two arched pavilions, one representing the war in and around the Pacific Ocean, and the other representing the conflicts in the Atlantic Ocean region.

The Vietnam Veterans Memorial is made of two long walls that meet at a corner. More than 58,000 names of service members killed or missing in action are engraved on the walls. The designer, Maya Lin, kept the design simple to “allow everyone to respond and remember.” Next week, The Mini Page celebrates Memorial Day with a feature about the U.S. Navy.

photo courtesy Badger Honor Flight

John Liebmann took an honor flight in October 2012. Liebmann’s daughter, Wendy,* lives in Washington, D.C. She went with him on his tour of the memorials. Liebmann said everywhere his group went, people said “Thank you” and shook the veterans’ hands. “It was all really very awesome, and quite overwhelming,” he said. “It John Liebmann met former U.S. Sen. Bob was a great experience, and Dole and his wife, Elizabeth, at the I hope they National World War continue to II Memorial. Dole is also a WWII veteran. do it.”

In Washington, D.C., memorials to several United States wars lie between the Lincoln Memorial and the Washington Monument. The Mini Page takes you on a mini-tour of those two landmarks, along with three memorials: the National World War II Memorial, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial and the Korean War Veterans Memorial.

Memories and thanks

Visiting Veterans

photo courtesy National Park Service

Most veterans from World War II are well into their 80s and 90s now, and some use wheelchairs or have other health issues. It is estimated that between 700 and 1,000 U.S. WWII veterans die each day. Because of this, many people want to thank them for their service to our country and learn about their experiences while there is still time. This is true for veterans of other wars as well, including the Korean War and the Vietnam War. Veterans from these conflicts who have terminal, or deadly, health conditions also may be eligible for honor flights.

At the Korean War Veterans Memorial, 19 larger-than-life stainless steel statues show service members on patrol, representing each branch of the military. The Lincoln Memorial houses a large sculpture of a seated Abraham Lincoln, 16th president of the United States. It was dedicated in 1922. photo courtesy National Park Service

The Mini Page thanks Susan Stinson with Badger Honor Flight in Madison, Wis., and John Liebmann for help with this issue.
