A presidential performance
When President Barack Obama delivered his State of the Union address on Jan. 25, he singled out Morgridge College of Education alumna Kristin Waters (PhD ’06) for her work to turn around Denver’s failing Bruce Randolph School as its principal from 2005–09. “Three years ago, it was rated one of the worst schools in Colorado … But last May, 97 percent of the seniors received their diploma,” Obama said. “Most will be the first in their families to go to college. And after the first year of the school’s transformation, the principal who made it possible wiped away tears when a student said ‘Thank you, Ms. Waters, for showing that we are smart and we can make it.’” Waters now serves as an instructional superintendent with Denver Public Schools. >>Read more about Waters at www.du.edu/today
Love Grown Foods granola recently brought 375 bags of love — in the form of granola, of course — and served breakfast to children at Denver’s Ronald McDonald House. Run by Maddy D’Amato (BA ’08) and Alex Hasulak (BSBA ’08), the company donated one bag for each new fan and follower on Facebook and Twitter. “During hard times, we often neglect ourselves, and finding healthy, delicious foods that are easy to grab-and-go and filling is not easy. We are thrilled to leave loads of love for all the families and children,” D’Amato and Hasulak wrote on their blog, www.lovegrownfoods.com/blog.
Colorado native, DU alum Pete Coors named Citizen of the West
The National Western Stock Show recently honored DU alumnus Pete Coors (MBA ’79) as its 2011 Citizen of the West. With a family history dating back to before Colorado’s statehood, Coors is a fourth generation Coloradan and the second in his family to receive the honor. William Coors, Pete’s uncle and a DU Honorary Life Trustee, received the honor in 1992. The award is given annually by National Western to individuals who “embody the spirit and determination of the western pioneer and who are committed to perpetuating the West’s agricultural heritage and ideals.” “Without Pete, the Rockies and Coors Field would not be here. Our state, region and country are better because of Pete Coors and the leadership he has provided,” said National Western Stock Show Chairman Jerry McMorris when he announced Coors as the recipient. “He is a true Citizen of the West.” This is the second year in a row the Citizen of the West has had a DU tie. Last year, Rebecca Love Kourlis, executive director of DU’s Institute for the Advancement of the American Legal System, and her husband Tom, a DU alumnus, received the award. Former DU Chancellor Dan Ritchie received the honor in 1998. The awardees are selected by a committee of community leaders. Proceeds from the dinner honoring Coors, held Jan. 10, support 74 scholarships awarded by the National Western Scholarship Trust.

Skew infuses quick-casual Asian cuisine with four-star style
Skew — a new restaurant that seeks to turn steak, chicken, pork and seafood into “art on a stick” — opened its doors Jan. 10 in a space vacated by Stick-e-Star in April 2010. The new eatery at 2070 S. University Blvd. offers 41 grilled or fried “skews” for eat-in or take-out. “The food that we do here is the same food you’d get in a four- or five-star restaurant, but I do it at a much lower price and a lot faster than a full-service restaurant,” says Watcharat Phairatphiboon, one of the six owners of the family restaurant. “It’s quick casual.” Choices range from the chicken yakitori skew for $3.75 and the Tsukune meatball skew for $4 to a spicy Newport shrimp skew that melds tiger shrimp with onions, peppers and a “Newport” sauce of ginger, scallions and sake for $6.75. Fried skew offerings include items such as kneaded pork with onions, scallions, nori and katsu curry sauce for $4.75 or Philly Katsu, a Panko-breaded mozzarella-stuffed Angus steak with onions, tri-color peppers and black pepper sauce for $5.50. Side dishes include sticky rice, noodle salad and “volcanic edamame.” Vegetarians can pick from crispy organic tofu to grilled asparagus, zucchini and shiitake mushrooms. Even the desserts are exotic, with a mango and sticky rice parfait made of infused coconut sticky rice with fresh mangos and coconut gelato ice cream for $5. “I’ve been a student here so I know how sensitive people are to price,” Phairatphiboon says. “If you want people to try a new type of cuisine or food, you have to make the price low enough for people to try it.” Skew offers a full bar of beer, wine, sake, and fruit-inspired or muddled martinis among a range of exotic beverages. One concoction — the $12 Volcano — even claims to be strong enough per serving to “quench” a party of four. Skew is open daily from 11 a.m.–midnight.

Professor revives child near death in Africa
Think you have a good story about your winter break? Phil Tedeschi sure does. Tedeschi, a clinical associate professor in the University of Denver Graduate School of Social Work, spent two weeks in December in east Africa as part of a class he teaches called Social Work in Kenya: Context, Empowerment, and Sustainability. The class exposes students to the difficulties in the region and challenges them to develop ways to support the people there. The day before the class was to return to the United States, Tedeschi and students spent a little time experiencing the beaches of the Indian Ocean. “There were hundreds of people just lounging and enjoying the warm waters,” Tedeschi says. But on this day, the tide was low — low enough that people could walk several hundred yards into the ocean. In fact, locals call it “the drowning tide” because it often forms small but relatively deep pools of water that are difficult to see. A few minutes after arriving, a colleague alerted Tedeschi that there had been an accident. Tedeschi noticed a group of men pulling a surf board with a small boy on it, about 6 years old, face down and not moving. “I immediately went over to see what was going on. I turned the boy over and his eyes were open and fixed, he wasn’t breathing and he had foam around his mouth and nose,” Tedeschi says. “But I did notice he had a good heartbeat.” Tedeschi, who’s trained as a wilderness emergency medical technician, quickly blew a rescue breath into the boy and turned him to the side. “That’s when he expelled a lot of water, so I put him on his back and gave him another breath and again he expelled more water,” Tedeschi says. “He had a dazed look for about 30 seconds and then let out a loud scream and began crying. That’s when I knew he was going to be OK.” Tedeschi says he never saw or met the boy’s parents. “I don’t think they knew what to do for him. The men who brought the boy to shore were going to claim him as dead,” Tedeschi says. And more good news: Tedeschi is now communicating with a Kenyan organization he works with as part of the social work class to start emergency medical and CPR training there. “I think that’s something that may help,” Tedeschi says.
Dazbog joins coffee competition with new store on South Downing
Competition for the coffee dollar intensified over the holidays when a new Dazbog coffee shop quietly opened Dec. 27 in the 2400 block of South Downing Street. The bright, airy bean-and-brew store occupies a one-story office building on the west side of Downing just north of Porter Adventist Hospital. “People who come in say they’re finally glad we’re open,” said franchise holder Keith Darr, a former software consultant and real estate fix-and-flipper. “Most of the people from the neighborhood love the location.” So do Dazbog founders Anatoly and Leonid Yuffa, who dropped into the store Jan. 3 to make sure everything in the shop — the company’s 30th — was perking along properly. “It’s a great neighborhood store,” Leonid Yuffa says, noting that the shop expects to draw from the University neighborhood to the east and the Porter Hospital community in addition to the University of Denver. “I like the appearance and the openness,” Yuffa said. “It has room and a good feel. It’s a good place to study and hang out.” There’s free WiFi and Darr added parking in the back for about 11 cars. In 1996, the Yuffa brothers started Dazbog — which is a greeting that expresses a wish for good fortune — and have expanded the chain to five states since then. The company sells about a dozen locally roasted specialty and organic coffee blends plus pastries and teas. The new store at 2450 S. Downing St. will be open daily from 6 a.m.–8 p.m.
Alumnus runs one of the world’s top ski complexes
lifelong skier who learned the sport on a tiny ski hill in Wisconsin, Aspen Skiing Co. CEO and President Mike Kaplan (MBA ’93) now runs one of the world’s top ski complexes at four resorts in the Rockies. Kaplan hopes SkiCo will build on its success in the 2009–10 season, when skier-days grew by 4 percent to 1.4 million. It was a decent rebound after the dismal 2008–09 season, which saw attendance drop 7 percent in the depth of the recession. “Last season was so uncertain,” says Kaplan, 46, who commutes four miles to the office by bike during the summer and fall and skis the steeps come winter. “We went in thinking flat was a win, and we were pleasantly surprised. Consumers were spending more freely.” Kaplan hopes to build on that success this season, with a new hands-free ticket system that operates on a radio frequency, expanded glade skiing at Aspen Highlands, and a new burgerthemed restaurant at Snowmass. Gearing up for the 2010–11 season brings him back to his early days as a high-school ski racer training at Wilmont Mountain — a Wisconsin ski hill with a vertical elevation of 230 feet. Snowmass touts the biggest vertical elevation change in the U.S. at 4,406 feet from the base of 8,104 feet to the summit at 12,510 feet. He set his heart on a career in the ski industry while ski bumming at New Mexico’s Taos Ski Valley Resort, where he headed after earning his undergraduate degree from the University of Colorado. At Taos, he taught skiing, worked the graveyard shift running the snow guns and learned the science of avalanche control on the ski patrol. Needing a stronger foundation in management to make his next career move, he enrolled at DU’s Daniels College of Business to earn his MBA. “I’d come to realize that most managers in the ski industry back then had come up through the ranks and had gotten on-thejob training,” recalls Kaplan, who lives in Aspen with his wife, Laura, and children Emma, 16, Eli, 15, Stella, 13, and Ava, 6. “A business degree was a good next step.” At Daniels, Kaplan did case studies on issues in the ski industry while also taking classes in hospitality and tourism management. After earning his MBA, he landed a job at Aspen, starting as director of Aspen’s ski school then moved up to operations. By 2005, he was named chief operating officer, and a year later, he was appointed CEO and president. Four years later, Kaplan says SkiCo is poised for renewed growth. Health-conscious baby boomers are reaching their 50s and 60s still in shape, with money to spend, and with legs strong enough to head down a run in a foot of fresh powder. Better mountain grooming and improved ski technology has also improved the on-mountain experience. Those years, however, won’t last forever, and Kaplan — like the rest of the ski industry — knows the industry needs to reach out to the younger generation to get more skiers and snowboarders up on the mountain. This year, SkiCo’s four areas are among 21 Colorado resorts participating in Colorado Ski Country USA’s Fifth Grade Passport program, in which fifth-graders receive three days of free skiing at each of the mountains. This year, fifth-graders also receive rental gear and a lesson on their first day on the slopes. “Things are good right now, but down the road, we need to replace those baby boomers with Gen X and Gen Y,” says Kaplan. “We need to build and nurture Gen X, and Gen Y is a different generation. It’s more diverse, and our business is not that diverse. We need to diversify our customer-base to compete for those vacation dollars.”

Two DU poets win national arts grants
Two poets with DU ties were among 42 poets from across the nation awarded literature fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) in November 2010. Sandra Meek (PhD poetry ’95) and current PhD student Jennifer Denrow each were awarded $25,000, as were the 40 other grant recipients. According to the NEA website, the grants “encourage the production of new works of literature by allowing writers the time and means to write.” Meek (pictured), an English professor at Berry College in Rome, Ga., plans to use the money to return to South Africa — where she served in the Peace Corps 20 years ago — to work on her fifth book of poetry, An Ecology of Elsewhere. Denrow, whose first full-length book of poetry, California, comes out in April from Four Way Books, plans to use her grant to travel and write as well. A native of Kansas City, Kan., she is in her third year in DU’s PhD creative writing program. The NEA’s annual creative writing fellowships alternate between poetry and prose. The agency received 1,063 eligible applications for the 2010 grants.
Acacia karroo Hayne (White Thorn) by Sandra Meek
Ivory monastery, you invite retreat, your quills without ink, your needles hollow; you are slow exhalations of whistled breath, both cut and seam, the noteless stems of music a girl scores into her arms; you are the soul’s razored canister. Antennae of many voices, you tune to the milky ships of distant planets, your fray of ghosts without waists, without wrists, a crystalline heart slivered to fossil trails of shooting stars; you are the desert’s drained hourglass, its whittled vanishing, you are the bristling unlit incense of fog and sea-froth, your liver-spotted sleeves the stiff papery threads of a petrified fountain, village cookfires’ lingering veil honed to narrow vials, to spines of moonlight echoing the body’s deepest wands, the cuneiform of longing, how you avoided pain by becoming its measure, your starved scepters clinging to anyone passing.

If Reflection by Jennifer Denrow
You can put anything in the sky. You can put yourself in the sky. And if that doesn’t work, You can use a bird. There is so much to the world. Stop taking apart the sky. I can’t. When I tell people about the sky They say, yes, we know.

Student-athletes give nonprofits an assist
DU’s student-athletes are showing that they’re not only good athletes — they’re good sports, too. Throughout the year, Pioneers are taking off their gear and taking part in service projects that support a number of service organizations around Denver and the state of Colorado through the University’s Citizen-Athlete Community Outreach Program. The program was created to increase efforts and strengthen DU’s connection to the community, says Cindi Nagai, DU’s director of studentathlete support services, diversity and community relations. The other goals of the program are to encourage student-athletes to deepen their self-understanding as citizens and role models for their peers; to create a learning laboratory that provides student-athletes opportunities to acquire skills for civic engagement by learning alongside community partners; and to empower student-athletes to become agents of positive social change. Each athletic team is required to do a community service project. On past projects, Pioneers have worked with Habitat for Humanity, the Children’s Hospital, the 9Health Fair, the Make-A-Wish Foundation and Susan G. Komen for the Cure. The council works in conjunction with Nagai and the Citizen-Athlete Community Outreach Program to coordinate community outreach activities. The council consists of two representatives from each team. Student-athletes undertake one large community service project each quarter. The fall quarter project was the 9News Food Drive; the winter project supported Soles4Souls — an organization that collects new and gently worn shoes and donates them to people in need.
Sophomore encourages Denver to recognize dating violence
Statistics show one in three women will experience dating violence at some point in their lives. For DU sophomore Jenni Talcott, that wasn’t just a startling statistic. It was her reality. “In high school I was involved in a highly abusive relationship. That year of abuse turned my world upside down,” she says. The criminology and psychology major from Englewood, Colo., worked to persuade then-Denver Mayor (now Colorado Governor) John Hickenlooper to recognize February as Dating Violence Awareness Month in the City and County of Denver. Talcott says she was upset to learn that Dating Violence Awareness Month was recognized by just 22 states, and that Colorado was not among them. “I was angered that my own state neglected to promote such a significant issue,” she says. It was through her work with the Puksta Scholars Program that Talcott researched the issue and the proclamation process. Through the Puksta program, scholarship recipients participate in a four-year, developmental civic engagement program that moves students from volunteerism to systemic social change work through the community organizing process. After she presented her research to Hickenlooper’s office, Talcott’s request was granted and she worked with his staff to draft the official proclamation language. “Violence is perceived as a private problem when it is really a public epidemic. I want people to acknowledge dating violence’s prevalence in our community and be inspired to take action,” she says. “I never wanted the violence to define me, but over time it has empowered me to share my story and help others.”
History professor writes for New York Times series on the Civil War
On Oct. 31, 2010, The New York Times began an unusual news series that tracks the nation’s secession crisis and ensuing Civil War. The “Disunion” series follows the events of the crisis on a daily basis from several angles. Susan Schulten, associate professor of history at DU, was asked to contribute to the series by examining the crisis from a geographic and cartographic perspective. She is currently writing a second book about the rise of thematic mapping in American history, and from 2008–09 she was a member of the Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial Commission in Colorado. “I’ve been interested in Lincoln and the Civil War as both a researcher and a teacher for years, and I’ve thought about the meaning of maps for nearly two decades,” Schulten says. “So for me, the convergence of the two subjects made this a very tempting offer.” Schulten’s first piece ran Nov. 11 and focused on President Lincoln’s election victory on Nov. 6, 1860. Her second story ran Dec. 9 and focused on a map of slavery favored by Lincoln. It was among the 10 most viewed and e-mailed stories that day. Because of her expertise in mapping, Schulten plans to write about the geographical dimension of the crisis, both through old maps from the period and also new maps that illuminate the crisis. Clay Risen, staff editor and co-editor of the series, says Schulten is a perfect fit for their project. Risen says a writer made the original suggestion to follow the events of the Civil War chronologically. The editorial staff liked the idea and decided they had an opportunity to use technology to discover new angles to American history and make it accessible to a wide audience. “No one else has done this before,” Risen says. “The Civil War was one of, if not the turning point in American history, yet people know very little about it.” “It never ceases to amaze me that the Civil War continues to be a source of tremendous interest for Americans,” Schulten says. “I was also fairly surprised at the intensity of the comments on the pieces we run, which recalls Faulkner’s observation that ‘The past is never dead; it’s not even past.’” Schulten’s articles will run about once a month through April 2015.
Ahead of the game
DU professor helps author proposed concussions law
University of Denver professor spent much of 2010 helping prepare a bill Colorado lawmakers are now considering that addresses concussions among school-aged athletes. Kim Gorgens, a clinical assistant professor with the University of Denver Graduate School of Professional Psychology, worked with physicians, nurses, school officials and leaders of several Colorado organizations to draft a position paper that has now become Senate Bill 11-040. “I think what we’ve created is a bill that will make Colorado proud,” says Gorgens, who has spent much of her career studying and researching head injuries. Colorado State Senator Nancy Spence (R-Centennial) submitted the bill to the state Legislature on Jan. 14. The measure includes three key elements: • Specialized training for coaches, trainers and others who work with students. • Students with suspected concussions being pulled from play. • Athletes returning to play only after being cleared by a professional with expertise in concussion management. Gorgens spoke about concussions at the 2010 TEDxDU at the Newman Center for the Performing Arts. “Kids are more vulnerable to brain injury,” she said in her talk. “High school athletes are three times more likely to sustain catastrophic injuries relative even to their college age peers, and it takes them longer to return to a symptom-free baseline. After that first injury, their risk for second injury is exponentially greater; from there, their risk for third injury is greater still, and so on.” Gorgens, who is also the chair of the Colorado Traumatic Brain Injury Trust Fund — an entity the Legislature created to provide statewide care coordination and services to those with traumatic brain injury — says Colorado is “toward the front of the pack” of states developing legislation on concussions. Gorgens estimates that nine other states have passed laws. “A few states raced through quickly following public momentum and some of those ended up not really reflecting what research suggested was needed,” Gorgens says. “I think Colorado did it thoughtfully and included everyone who had an interest, including attorneys, and there was a good meeting of the minds. No one got everything they wanted, but everyone left the table pretty happy.” Gorgens believes Colorado is doing a good job addressing concussions and head injuries. Specifically she mentioned the Denver Veterans Administration’s “groundbreaking research” on head injuries, and she praised Kenny Hosack, director of provider relations with Craig Hospital for his work on the bill. “He has, for decades, always been at the forefront of work on this at the local, state and federal levels,” Gorgens says. “He and Craig Hospital have put Colorado on the map for this topic.” Gorgens invited her DU students to attend meetings on the position paper and bill and some did. One student in DU’s sports and performance psychology program attended, networked with group members and is now doing some career-related work with the Colorado Avalanche. “That’s exactly why I wanted students involved. It can turn in to some fantastic opportunities for them they can’t get elsewhere,” Gorgens says. On March 4, DU will host the fourth annual translational neuroscience conference from 7:30 a.m.–4:45 p.m. in the Driscoll Center. The conference features national experts on head injury care. All proceeds go to community organizations focused on head injuries. Visit www.du.edu/braininjury for more information.
