North Denver Notions
This is one of those ‘life isn’t fair’
moments. It is also one of those
‘life is really grand’ moments.
If you’ve been reading my col-
umn on multi-sport for the last few
months, you’ll remember my hap-
piness at just being
able to train again
after being very
sick over the win-
ter, then the hard
training and build-
up to get back into race shape,
the setting of four tough goals for
myself this summer, and the plan-
tar fasciitis injury that hobbled me
just when I had attained my goal of
qualifying for Triathlon Age-Group
Nationals.
No news on the injury… it seems
to have
p l a -
teaued.
It’s not
getting
b e t t e r
r i g h t
n o w ,
b u t
thank-
f u l l y
it isn’t
g e t t i n g
worse. I haven’t run for over two
months now, which is one of the
longest periods I’ve ever gone with-
out running since I started com-
peting at 13 years of age. Boy do I
miss it.
Because of the injury I skipped
my two races in July, planning
to be healed up by the end of the
month. That was wishful thinking,
so with the foot still aching I decid-
ed to do what I could of my August
races, which I had signed up for
way before the injury. I racked up
my first DNF (Did Not Finish) in
over 20 years of racing, and even
though it was terribly frustrat-
ing not to finish my races, it felt
good to compete in the parts of the
races I was able to– the swim and
bike legs. And I reached another
goal I’d set, which was to swim the
Olympic distance (1500 meters) in
25 minutes.
And now, I am writing from
Hawaii, where I just finished
another Olympic-distance triath-
lon, again just doing the swim and
bike legs, and with my coach’s
daughter, Ali, running for me. I
PR’ed the swim and the bike on
this course (PR = personal record),
Ali ran like the wind,
and we took second in
the women’s relay divi-
sion and seventh out of all
33 relay teams, men and women.
A very satisfying finish.
Coach Eddie
also raced, as did
his wife Belinda,
who happens to
be my BFF, and
even more fun, we
all brought home hardware, with
Eddie taking third and Belinda
taking first in their age groups,
respectively.
Okay, so here’s where the ‘life
isn’t fair’ part comes in: when I got
off the bike, I was 10 minutes in
front of the girl who won my age
group, and when healthy I am a
faster runner than she is. I coulda
been first… This is hard for a com-
petitive person to swallow.
As per usual, I look to the les-
sons of multi-sport to gain per-
spective. Even without being able
to run and finish races, triath-
lon continues to enrich my life
in countless ways. Despite the
injury that is clearly not going to
be a short-term nuisance, despite
the frustration of not being able
to finish races right now, despite
the fact that I won’t be going to
Nationals after all… I can still train
hard in two demanding sports, I’ve
achieved two of the four goals I set
for myself and am on the threshold
of the third, I got to race in Hawaii
for the second consecutive year,
and I got to do it with my Hawaiian
ohana (family).
I have asked myself, “Why
the long drawn-out injury???”
Especially after the rotten illness
over the winter, and some really
cruddy things that have happened
over the past three years. “Not fair,”
I think, “Haven’t I had enough?”
Maybe there is an answer to the
“why.” Maybe, for instance, I
wouldn’t have made strides on the
bike this year if I hadn’t had all
that extra time to train the bike.
Maybe the running injury is actu-
ally some type of crazy blessing in
disguise. Who knows, maybe there
isn’t an answer to the “why” at all,
although that’s not how I prefer to
see it.
And most certainly that little
lesson of patience is still being
thrown my way. Patience has been
my lifelong challenge. In every-
Life isn’t fair…
but so what
thing. But, the fact is, there is no
way to rush the healing process.
And extrapolating that statement
out, it holds true whether the heal-
ing is physical or emotional. You
can want it to happen on your
own devised time schedule all you
wish. You can want to stop being
sad that a loved one has passed, or
that a marriage has ended. You can
want that foot to get better now so
that the entire racing season isn’t
lost. But that isn’t how it works.
It will happen. Healing will hap-
pen, in its own time. And until it
does, you do what you can still do,
and you help the healing process
along however you can, but in the
end what you do most, is wait...
And it may seem to happen with
glacial slowness, but, irrevocably,
healing will come.
At some point your heart will
become lighter, you will smile at
a sunrise again, you will feel the
sadness has lifted. Or you will feel,
suddenly, that your foot doesn’t
ache when you step out of bed in
the morning.
No, life isn’t fair. It often isn’t
fair at all. But having the courage
to wait can lead us back to the
other side, which is that life is very
very grand.

Visiting Angels, a national
homecare agency providing
non-medical care to the elderly,
is now open in Westminster,
CO. The office will serve the
North Denver Metro area up
into Westminster. The long-
awaited licensure from the State
of Colorado arrived over the
weekend, and owner Kristin
Middleton is excited to get start-
ed providing care for those in
need and jobs to the Caregivers
she has recruited.
With 15 years of experience in
the professional staffing indus-
try, Middleton brings knowledge
of what it takes to successfully
match people with other peo-
ple. “Placing someone in your
loved one’s home is a very big
deal. I am very thorough with
background checks, reference
checks, drug screens – and I
spend almost 5 hours with each
Caregiver before I am willing to
place them,” she says.
“I am so fortunate to have
the opportunity to combine my
compassion for the elderly with
my professional experience,”
says Middleton, who has seen
firsthand the effects of a poor
economy and joblessness. “It’s
great to be able to help the
elderly AND help people find
jobs at the same time!”
Visiting Angels is available
24/7, including weekends and
holidays.

Scion is a relatively young manu-
facturer and their tC sedan is aimed
at a young professional auto enthu-
siast who doesn’t care what every-
one else is buying.
Ever since its introduction in
2004, the tC has been Scion’s best
selling vehicle and there are good
reasons for that. It has provided a
sporty option with sharp perfor-
mance, good fuel economy and a
pleasing line of standard equipment
at a very competitive price point.
In the 2011 model, the tC has
all those things but a bit more.
First off, it’s a downright handsome
vehicle, with a striking silhouette
and a means-business appearance
from any angle.
It follows up with a 2.5 liter,
16-valve, DOHC with dual VVT-I
4-cylinder engine that delivers 180
horses at 6,000 rpm and 173 lb.-ft. of
torque at 4,100 rpm.
Add to that a very livable 23-mpg
city and 31-mpg highway, a nice
array of features, zero to 60 in about
8 seconds and a delivered price of
just under $20K and you’ve got a
reasonably priced car that’s big fun
to drive whether you get the six-
speed manual or automatic trans-
mission.
At the manufacturer intro last
week in Las Vegas, we gave the tC
a good workout, putting through
its paces on city
streets, urban free-
ways, rural high-
ways and side-
winding moun-
tain roads. We
were impressed
with its accelera-
tion, tracking, cor-
nering and overall
performance.
For the true
enthusiast, a whole
slew of TRD after-
market and third
party enhance-
ments will boost
the little sedan’s
performance to yet another level.
The standard stereo is a 300-watt
Pioneer eight-speaker powerhouse
but true audiophiles can upgrade
to an Alpine system if desired. Yes
it has the auxiliary hookup, USB,
Bluetooth and all that jazz, natch.
Though this year’s model has
yet to be tested, the 2010 tC earned
a SmartWay designation with the
automatic transmission.
It comes with a complete set
of 8 airbags and the 2010 model
rated five stars except for rollovers
and the front passenger in frontal
impacts, scoring only four stars.
Considering the looks, price, per-
formance, fuel economy and fea-
tures, I would recommend the 2011
Scion tC to anyone who wants a
little style and sport with their sen-
sible practicality. In the Scion tC
those are not antithetical concepts.

A friend of mine and her sisters
recently bought land in Montana.
They plan to build a cabin to share
– along with their children and
grandchildren. A surprising number
of people I know have family cabins
like this. Some are near enough for
a quick overnight – just above Idaho
Springs, for example. Some are a
once-a-year vacation destination –
the Gulf Coast or the upper reaches
of Minnesota.
Ellie’s Montana cabin will be
out in rolling country, a long way
from the next dwelling. But it seems
like most are parts of little cabin
communities.
The one my friend Doug and his
sister own sits right on the rim of
Cottonwood Lake, with neighbors
as near as if they were in the city.
Everyone, including his parents, got
long-term leases from the Forest
Service back in the fifties, so there’s
lots of calling back and forth from
porches, and waving between boat-
ers and fishermen – camaraderie
that wouldn’t exist if they were
urban neighbors.
Foster and Jill’s, on the other
hand, is the first in a string of
cabins along a steep dirt road.
Everyone knows everyone, but
not well. Even in high summer
it’s a good place for a quiet retreat,
as only one or two cabins are occu-
pied at any one time.
Shawn’s family cabin in Minnesota
is somewhere in between – yes, it’s
on a lake, with fishing and boating,
and the people know each other and
socialize – often at the lodge down
the road. But the scene isn’t as fre-
netic as that at Cottonwood.
Riley and
A n n a l o u i s e
have a cabin
on stilts right
on the beach at
Corpus Christi.
It feels like a
s l o w- mo v i ng
Southern town, not at all like a place
to get away from it all.
Most of these cabins originally
were bought or built by my parents’
generation. They passed to my gen-
eration, and now, often, to the next
generation, who hold them in com-
mon. What was once “our cabin”
now has three or six owners, who
must work out finances and sum-
mer schedules. Families often try to
overlap a little so they get to see each
other, but also have private time.
I wonder what it’s like to have
such a literal home away from home,
to return each year to the same knot-
ty pine paneling, the same dog-eared
books, the same cast-off posters and
baskets that have sentimental value
but no longer fit the home décor. I
wonder what it’s like to rediscover
that sweatshirt that got left behind
last year (does it still fit?), and notice
that someone has added a hideous
lamp, and someone else a lovely
wind chime. To throw down your
things and rush down the beach or
the hill to see if the Anderson kids
are here yet, and then watch your
kids do the same thing thirty years
later, and theirs thirty years after
that. And that plaid chair with the
sprung seat is still there in the cor-
ner, still fine for squishing down into
for a long evening by the fire.
I wish I could look ahead twen-
ty years to see how Ellie’s family
cabin grows – which kids use it and

Yokohama Tires came to town last
Friday with an exciting new prod-
uct to talk about for your hybrid
or high-mileage commuter. Even
people with larger sedans or other
vehicles might be interested in
this innovative new tire.
Yokohama introduced the dB
Super E-spec tire to a group of
media representatives
in the parking lot of
Invesco Field.
These tires are 80
percent petroleum free
– normal tires are from
55 to 65 percent oil-
based.
The new tires were
mounted on Mini-
Cooper S models and
pylon ringed courses
were set up to dem-
onstrate the straight-
ahead acceleration and
cornering properties of
these tires made with
orange oil.
The dB Supers are
the first tires from the
manufacturer utilizing
their new Super Nano-
Power Compound
which bonds natural
rubber with the orange
oil creating a lighter
substance with less-
ened rolling resistance without
significant loss of traction.
It seems there’s an architec-
tural similarity between natural
rubber and orange oil that cre-
ates a superior bond in the com-
pound.
In fact as the temperature of
the tire increases the traction of
the tire does too. The tires per-
formed very well on acceleration
and cornering but we were most
impressed with their astonishing
stopping power.
We could bring the little Cooper
to a full stop from 25 to 30-mph
in something like 8 to 12 feet –
phenomenal!
In full out panic stop tests the
ABS-equipped Minis would come
to a complete halt in 30 to 40 feet
from full out acceleration of 50 or
60 mph.
Mind you these are visual esti-
mates rather than precise mea-
surements.
Further the new tires feature
an advanced inner liner, a sub-
stance feeling much like thick
latex, that retains air in the tire
better and longer.
“Every conventional tire
requires from three to seven
gallons of oil,” said Yokohama
spokesman Matt Johnson. “Every
gallon of oil is responsible for
The phrase “peel out” takes on a whole
new meaning in tires made from orange oil
about 20 lbs of CO2 pollution.”
So orange is the new green if
you consider how lessened rolling
resistance results in reduced fuel
consumption and the amount of
oil saved in the production of these
tires.
Further, Yokohama Tire
Corporation (YTC) has made a com-
mitment to environmental leader-
ship throughout the cor-
poration’s business.
“Consistent with our
global initiative, YTC
has developed a ‘Green
Initiative’ to cover our
U.S. operations and
reduce the company’s
environmental impact in
every way possible,” said
Takao Oishi, Yokohama
president and CEO.
Their plants in the
U.S., Japan and the
Philippines are zero-
emission facilities and
they have initiated a
Forest Forever program
responsible for planting
acres and acres of trees
around their production
facilities.
We’re sure your Prius
would purr with a new
set of these tires to roll
on…
For the record, 87
percent of Yokohama tires are built
in the facility at Selma, VA.
The event was held at Invesco
Field because Yokohama is spon-
soring the Denver Broncos score-
board replays in rotation with three
other sponsors.

the dB Super E-spec and other
Yokohama tires visit yokohamatire.

Black rice is used mainly in Asia
for food decoration, noodles, sushi,
and pudding. Dr. Xu said that farm-

rice in Louisiana and that he would

Health conscious consumers
who hesitate at the price of fresh
blueberries and blackberries, fruits
renowned for high levels of healthful
antioxidants, now have an economi-
cal alternative, scientists reported
here today at the 240th National
Meeting of the American Chemical
Society (ACS). It is black rice, one
variety of which got the moniker
"Forbidden Rice" in ancient China
because nobles commandeered every
grain for themselves and forbade the
common people from eating it.
"Just a spoonful of black rice
bran contains more health promot-
ing anthocyanin antioxidants than
are found in a spoonful of blue-
berries, but with less sugar and
more fiber and vitamin E antioxi-
dants," said Zhimin Xu, Associate
Professor at the Department of Food
Science at Louisiana State University
Agricultural Center in Baton Rouge,
La., who reported on the research.
"If berries are used to boost health,
why not black rice and black rice
bran? Especially, black rice bran
would be a unique and economical
material to increase consumption of
health promoting antioxidants."
Like fruits, "black rice" is rich
in anthocyanin antioxidants, sub-
stances that show promise for fight-
ing heart disease, cancer, and other
diseases. Food manufacturers could
potentially use black rice bran or
the bran extracts to boost the health
value of breakfast cereals, beverag-
es, cakes, cookies, and other foods,
Xu and colleagues suggested.
Brown rice is the most widely pro-
duced rice variety worldwide. Rice
millers remove only the outer husks,
or "chaff," from each rice grain to
produce brown rice. If they process
the rice further, removing the under-
lying nutrient rich "bran," it becomes
white rice. Xu noted that many con-
sumers have heard that brown rice
is more nutritious than white rice.
The reason is that the bran of brown
rice contains higher levels of gam-
ma-tocotrienol, one of the vitamin
E compounds, and gamma-oryzanol
antioxidants, which are lipid-solu-
ble antioxidants. Numerous studies
showed that these antioxidants can
reduce blood levels of low-density
lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL) — so
called "bad" cholesterol — and may
help fight heart disease. Xu and col-
leagues analyzed samples of black
rice bran from rice grown in the
southern United States. In addition,
the lipid soluble antioxidants they
found in black rice bran possess
higher level of anthocyanins anti-
Black rice trumps
blueberries for antioxidants
oxidants, which are water-soluble
antioxidants. Thus, black rice bran
may be even healthier than brown
rice bran, suggested Dr. Xu.
The scientists also showed that
pigments in black rice bran extracts
can produce a variety of different
colors, ranging from pink to black,
and may provide a healthier alterna-
tive to artificial food colorants that
manufacturers now add to some
foods and beverages. Several studies

for Northwest Denver residents dur-
ing the month of September as part
of Car-Free Month. World Car-Free
Day is September 22.
Each event will highlight one
particular form of getting around.
To start the month, residents are
encouraged to participate in Sneaker
Mountain. Sneaker Mountain will be
held during the First Friday Artwalk,
at Tenn Street Coffee & Books, in
the north parking lot, at 44th and
Tennyson. In addition to donating
used sneakers (which will then be
reused or recycled) to help build the
mountain, residents can also come to
learn more about resources that are
available for getting around by walk-
ing. In addition, Holistic Bodyworks
will be on hand to provide reflexology
massages, and a prize drawing will
be held for the person who is closest
to guessing the number of sneakers
in the pile.
The following Saturday, September
11, the Strive to Not Drive project
will hold a Bicycle Exploration for
children, women and commuters.
The purpose of this event will be to
expose interested residents to biking
as a form of getting around. These
sessions will be held at Cesar Chavez
Park, located at 41st and Tennyson.
The classes for women and children
will be held – separately – at 9 a.m.,
and the one for commuters will be
held at 11 a.m. In addition to hands-
on advice about basic maintenance,
emergency repairs and equipment,
participants will also be provided
with resources about biking.
On Saturday, September 18, a
Transit Rideabout will be offered
to residents who are interested in
trying out the many public transit
options that exist in Denver. The
afternoon tour incorporates bus,
light rail, 16th Street Mall Shuttle
and B-Share bikes into a route that
starts in and returns to the Berkeley
neighborhood.
To end the month, a free movie
viewing will be offered to residents.
On World Car-Free Day, Wednesday,
September 22, The Comfort Café
is hosting a movie about “getting
around.” The movie will begin at 7
p.m. The Comfort Café is located at
3945 Tennyson, and complimentary
refreshments will be provided.
Benefits from this project will not
only affect residents who participate
in the program, but all Denver resi-
dents. Reducing the number of cars
on the road improves air quality and
decreases CO2 emissions, bettering
personal and public health. And by
walking, biking and riding closer to
home, residents support local busi-
nesses, making their neighborhoods
stronger and more vital.
For more information about the
project, contact Groundwork Denver
at 303-455-5600 or StrivetoNotDrive@
GroundworkDenver.org.
The goal of the Denver
Climate Challenge is to help resi-
dents and businesses reduce their
impact on the environment by
reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
The Denver Climate Challenge is
a program of Groundwork Denver.

Health Immunization Program
Whether your child is enter-
ing kindergarten or high school,
back-to-school planning should
include updating his/her immu-
nizations. Keeping a record of
your child’s immunizations, and a
list of vaccinations or booster vac-
cinations he/she may need at dif-
ferent ages, is important. Correct
immunizations protect the health
of each child, but also help pre-
vent outbreaks or epidemics in
the community.
Vaccines are developed to
reduce the amount of illnesses in
a population. Diseases most com-
monly prevented with vaccines, in
addition to tetanus, are contagious
diseases, which means the diseas-
es can be spread easily to others
in the community. For example,
prior to the introduction of the
pertussis (otherwise known as
whooping cough) vaccine, nearly
200,000 cases were reported each
year in the U.S., with about 9,000
cases of whooping cough result-
ing in death, mainly in babies. In
2007, only about 10,454 cases of
whooping cough were reported.
This extremely contagious dis-
ease is manageable if children are
properly immunized. Recently, the
Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention (CDC) recommended
immunizing teenagers and adults
against whooping cough, partly to
protect babies, who are most at
risk of dieing from this disease.
For another example of the
importance of vaccines, in 2006
there was an outbreak of mumps
in teenagers and young adults
in Iowa. By May 2006, 11 states
reported 2,597 cases of mumps.
The likely source of this outbreak
was a passenger on an interna-
tional airplane flight. Eight states
reported mumps outbreaks from
local transmission, and three
states reported cases associated
with travel from a state with a
documented outbreak. In addition
to high fevers and painful facial
swelling, mumps can cause deaf-
ness, sterility in boys, meningitis
(infection of the brain), and still
births in pregnant women.
Most vaccines are administered
before a child is two years old.
Many immunizations require sev-
eral doses to get full protection,
Immunizations are important
part of back-to-school planning
with the last of the doses admin-
istered before a child starts kin-
dergarten or before middle school.
Several new vaccines for teenag-
ers are now recommended.
The diseases children can,
and should, be immunized for
include:
Hepatitis B (inflammation of
the liver that can lead to liver
cancer);
Diphtheria (a potentially fatal
throat infection);
Tetanus;
Pertussis (whooping cough) –
now with a booster immunization
for teenagers;
Haemophilus Influenzae type
B (HIB) – a type of bacteria that
can cause meningitis and hear-
ing loss in young children;
Polio;
Pneumococcus – another bac-
teria that can cause meningitis
and hearing loss in young chil-
dren;
Rotavirus – a virus that causes
severe diarrhea, mostly in babies
and young children;
Measles;
Mumps;
Rubella (German measles);
Varicella (chicken pox);
Meningococcus – a teenage vac-
cine to prevent a form of meningi-
tis that is most common in college
dormitories and among military
recruits;
Hepatitis A;
Influenza – new recommenda-
tions from the CDC are to give
this vaccine every year to children
younger than six years of age, as
well children of all ages with cer-
tain high risk conditions such as
asthma. Also, people older than
65 years of age should receive a
flu shot every year because they
are more susceptible to the dis-
ease.
The most recently licensed vac-
cine is for Human Papilloma Virus
(HPV), an extremely common
infection that causes most cases
of cervical cancer in women. The
vaccine is now available and rec-
ommended for girls ages 11 and
12, but can be given to girls and
young women from ages 9 to 26.
All children should be vac-
cinated for these contagious dis-
eases, to protect each individual
child as well as to help protect
the community in which the child
lives. The fewer children that are
immunized, the more likely the
possibility of an outbreak in a
community.
For children who have not been
immunized yet, it is possible to
catch-up on missed immuniza-
tions. Check with your pedia-
trician about vaccinations and
protecting your child from these
preventable diseases. Also, visit
the CDC Web site at www.cdc.gov,
under the subheading “Vaccines
and Immunizations,” for a sched-
ule of immunizations, and a
catch-up schedule for children
and adults. The CDC Web site
also has an area to personalize
newborns’ immunization sched-
ules based on birth date, as well
as reliable information on vaccine
safety and on the diseases that all
of these vaccines can prevent.
