DENVER PLANNING BOARD APPROVES REZONING ON WEST SIDE
The Westside Rezoning Proposal, subject of considerable controversy, was formally approved by the Denver Planning Board on February 16, 1972. At a meeting lasting over three hours, the Board reviewed the entire body of evidence and voted 8 to 0. with one abstention, to City Council.
In September of 1971, the Planning Board was first
asked to act on the rezoning. Voting 7 to 0 in favor of the proposal, the rezoning then went to City Council for final consideration. At the last moment, an Attorney claiming to represent a group of people opposed to the rezoning, demanded that City Council send the matter back to the Planning Board for a Public Hearing and further consideration.
The Public Hearing, attended by over 400 people, was held at Baker Junior High School on January 5, 1972. Both sides of the issue were aired amidst strong resident sentiment. The Planning Board taking more than six weeks to review the evidence, made its final recommendation of support on Wednesday.
The citys Deputy Assessor,
Adelante Community Supermarket New Name for Community Store
Robert S. Reyes, winner of the Name the Store Contest with Bernie Vigil, Manager and Ray Torres, Assistant Manager, holding the new name, Adelante Supermarket.
ADELANTE COMMUNITY SUPERMARKET is the new name for the former National Brands Food Store at 727 Santa Fe Drive. The winning name, selected from among several hundred entrees by the West Side Economic Enterprise Corporation, was announced at the store on February 19, 1972 by store manager, Mr. Bernie Vigil.
The lucky winner is Mr. Robert S. Reyes, Jr. of 954 West 7th Avenue. The prize was a $30.00 check and $30.00 in groceries from the ADELANTE COMMUNITY SUPERMARKET. Mr. Reyes is a freelance graphic designer who works out of his West Side home. He offered to contribute his services in drawing up a design of the new name for the front of the supermarket. When asked by this reporter why he chose the name ADELANTE, Mr. Reyes stated that since the word means forward in
Spanish, it would be most appropriate for a name because the people of the West Side will go forward by patronizing their community-owned supermarket. The supermarkets coventurers the Denver
Community Development Corporation and the West Side Action Council also agree that ADELANTE likewise signifies their forward direction in community economic development.
Recorder Receives Funds from the Catholic Archdiocese
The West Side Recorder has received a $2500 grant from the Catholic Archdiocese Human Needs Program. This is the initial portion of the $5000 which was awarded to the Recorder by the Fund.
The grant committee members are Representative Betty Benavidez, Paul Sandoval, Rev. Bob Amundsen, Rev. Theodore Haas, Sister Jean Patrice Harrington, Sister Loretto Ann Madden, David C. Little,
John Reynolds, Mrs. Elsie Marranzino, Dr. Hubert Rothenberg, Bishop George Evans. We want to thank
them for their continued interest and participation in
the community, and particularly for their work toward keeping the Recorder an active voice for West Siders.
This grant will do a great
deal toward keeping the community informed of the vital issues which face it, so the community may keep its own identity and concerns.
ATTENTION WEST SIDERS
Our Councilman, Gene DiManna, has mailed questionnaires to the residents living in the area that is asking to be rezoned. It does not matter whether you are for the rezoning or against it. Please return your letter.
If all residents return their questionnaires, it will give a clearer picture as to the needs and desires of the community. Thus, the decision on the rezoning can be made with important facts apparent. If you have any questions, please call Jerry Garcia at 244-2636.

Mike Licht, was asked to testify before the Board to clarify the role of zoning in relation to property values. He said that rezoning would strengthen the values in this area, and would not harm property owners. His statement was in response to opposition claims that the value of property would severely decline if this rezoning was passed.
The Planning Board, by
Rezoiiig Not to Affect
Members of the Denver Planning Board, at an informal meeting, were definitely told that
property values in the 23-block rezoning area would not drop.
There would be no loss of money to investors if the city decides to
reduce the zoning of West Side land, from apartment and
business use to low-density residential use, Denver Deputy Assessor Mike Licht said.

voting without dissension in its favorable recommendation of the rezoning, provides strong evidence that Denver is beginning to recognize the unique character of neighborhoods, like the West Side, and wishes to stabilize and protect them. The rezoning now moves back to City Council for final action, which should occur at a Public Hearing near the end of March.
evidence produced at the January 5th Public Hearing, were concerned about claims that property owners would lose large sums of money, if the rezoning was passed. These claims, it seems, are untrue, and are being used by those opposing the rezoning to frighten neighborhood homeowners. Mr. Licht, who denied that people would lose money on their properties, is the Deputy Assessor, the man in charge of officially determining real estate values for taxing purposes, with the City and County of Denver. His testimony is based on sales records for this community. Land now zoned for high-rise apartments and high-density business use is being sold, with houses, for around $7,700. And he added that they would sell for the same price, if the land was zoned for low-density residential use. I dont believe the zone change would'cause the price to go down, Licht said. In this area, downzoning would increase property values. Prices dont vary that much with zoning.

We on the Recorder staff are pleased to see that the Denver Planning Board has chosen once again to support the residents of West Denver in their rezoning application.
The Planning Board had voted unanimously to approve the rezoning application submitted by the West Side Coalition back in September of 1971. On September 30th the mayor came out in the Denver Post and publicly supported the effort and praised the residents for attempting to stabilize and preserve their neighborhood. The application was then forwarded to City Council for their final approval. Council however was pressured by a few people with economic vested interest into sending the application back to the Planning Board for reconsideration. Opponents have claimed time and time again that the rezoning would prove detrimental to the neighborhood and cause an undue financial loss to speculative interests. Both of these arguments have been refuted and proven to be wrong.
January 5th witnessed some 300 residents attending a Public Hearing held by the Planning Board at Baker Jr. High. The outcome was apparent; it pitted people interests against economic interests. The residents and supporters argued for stabilizing the neighborhood through rezoning, and preserving and redeveloping the West Side. The few speculators in the crowd argued for financial investments and hi-rise apartments.
We on the Recorder staff would like to commend the Planning Board for listening objectively to both residents and land speculators, and for voting for humanistic values as opposed to materialistic ones. The application will now go to the City Council once again. It is our hope on the staff that the city fathers will listen with an attentive ear and cast their vote with the residents. The zoning application has stirred broad support across the city and each of the councilmen can rest assured that their constituents in their districts will be watching the progress of the application, as it filters through the councils political process.
In addition to lawyers opinions supporting the rezoning, the Planning Board and Planning Office, and the mayor,

WHATS THIS REZONING ALL ABOUT?
If youre like me, you never heard much about zoning. Now our whole West Side community is involved in one of Denvers biggest zoning battles, Whats this zoning business all about? Tired of people knocking on my door, I decided to investigate matters for myself. You ought to know what I found out; it affects all of us.
Ive lived on the West Side for quite a long time, and wish to remain here, so when I heard of rezoning I got scared. I thought Id have to move, or something like that, but now that I understand whats happening, I feel much better.
Who Wants Hi-Rises?
Our neighborhood is mostly single family homes, thats why I like living here. The Denver master plan says that this area will be full of high-rises. Most of West Side is now zoned to allow this to happen. I dont want high-rises, and I cant afford to go anywhere else. Who wants to live next door to a big building with all those floors and cars? Not me, but the law allows them right here in our neighborhood. So we have to change the law to protect our community. Thats the main reason Ive decided to support the rezoning.
Well, what about the value of my property? I was told that if its rezoned Id lose a fortune. I dont have a fortune, so itd be hard to lose one. Ten years ago my property was worth $4,200, today if I were to sell it, Id get about $8,500. If thats true, how could I lose the $12,000 that Mr. Goldstein claims I would? My property is not even worth that much, and neither is yours. Besides Mr. Licht, the assessor, (You know the guy who tells you how much your property is worth for tax purposes), said that rezoning will not affect the value of your land, it might even increase it, he said.
Who's Been Helping?
Another thing bothering me, and maybe you too, is all these claims about helping the neighborhood. Well, as Ive said, Ive been around for many years, and know who is who, and whos doing what. So maybe I should say my mind and clear the air a little.
For a longtime people have fought to save and better our neighborhood. Groups like the West Side Improvement Association have been holding meetings for over ten years. Other groups like the Westside Coalition fought to keep the

Letters To Editor
It seems some of our citizens feel it is much more convenient to condemn the police than face the facts. Their talk of atrocities and exploitation is blown up and exaggerated to such an extent the student is set against the police, not by the police action, but by these exaggerated and senseless remarks. There are a few at West High who are in dire need of police suppervision. You must be aware of this.
Tell me just why do you think there are no tramway benches at the bus stops around here? Why are the outside phones out of service most of the time? Why are the heavy grills on many of the windows on Santa Fe? The benches are broken and smashed up as fast as the tramway puts them on the street. The same with the telephones. The shopkeepers along Santa Fe can not stand the cost of replacing glass day after day.
This destruction is not just an act of God, you know. These fine acts are accomplished by a few poor harassed and oppressed students. Maybe you thought it was the police. No, dont blame the police for your shortcomings. Clean up your own mess before you start yelling harassment. They are only trying to do a job, a job you failed to do.
Yes, pull the police out of the schools. Take them off the street. What have we got then? Its a jungle now. What would it be without protection? Are you so blind or stupid you cant see this? Your ranting about atrocities is disgusting and harmful. Until you know what you are talking about I suggest you keep your mouth shut.
PING PONG TOURNAMENT
Players and spectators enjoying the tournament. (See story and more pictures on page 5)
What is the matter with these people anyway?
I dont understand how anyone can side with these people that mock the law. I just dont understand.
I am of the opinion that we need as much police protection as we can get. What these bunch of hoodlums want is to leave our small children and teachers defenseless at the mercy of dope addicts and burglars.
Cheers for our policemen. I wish we had ten policemen to every block. We could again walk without having to look every direction terrified that some hoodlum will grab our purse, yes even spit on us. And so that we could keep our public telephones from being destroyed, as God knows we need them.
Every day I get out in the yard trying to keep it clean. But my property is right on the way to school. These good children that dont need a police around throw beer cans and all kinds of trash all over my property as they pass. I just cant keep up with them.
Do these seem like young people that;can be trusted?,I wonder what kind of parents these young people have? If these bunch of people complaining would spend more time teaching their children to respect other peoples property and teach them a little pride and $elfrrespect never hurt anyone; and above all respect for law and order; They wouldnt find so much fault in our policemen.
We dont need just one policeman in our schools. We need the whole police department to keep them in line. Its too bad we just cant afford them. You can see for yourself, if you look around, or ride, or walk on the West Side. Do you see these well brought up young people doing anything to improve anything on the West Side? Broken windows, and destroyed public telephones, destroyed bus stop benches.
Why dont these people teach them to help make the places where they live presentable and to respect their teachers and policemen? They have the gall to find time to blame and find fault with our policemen. Thank God we have them. What would we do without them?
In times of trouble who are the first to help us? Our policemen. And the only ones who talk about them are the lawbreakers. God keep and bless each and everyone of them. I hope Chief Seaton lives a hundred years. Cheers for a wonderful group, our policemen.
To all dog owners: Why cant you keep your dogs tied in your own yard. Just because they have their shots and have their tags on doesnt mean you can turn them loose to bother neighbors and scare people to where they cant get to a bus line or to a store or the launderette.
Its especially bad up around W. Fourth and Bannock, Over to W. Fourth and Gal&pago. And theres a garage or some kind of business at W. Fourthiand Elati that has 2 dogs that run loose and scare school children.. Frankly I think they ought to change the laws on dogs. If dog owners cant take care of them, then after the second \yarning, take them away from them and find good homes for them'/like they do children.
I used*to >have a dog, a large black Chow Chow. I kept her penned up and on a cow chain. Thats the only thing that will hold large dogs.
I am tired of having to call the police or dog catcher. I hope this will do some good. We moved into this area last May. We like it very much. But I dont appreciate having to walk way out of the way to get to a bus line or run into a persons yard coming home because of dogs.
If you want a dog or own one, keep it tied up in your own yard.

Our Position (Continued from page 2)
Mr. Mike Licht the Deputy Assessor of the City recently gave an opinion that the land values would not be effected if it should be rezoned. This fact further negates the rumors now being spread by the opponents of the rezoning. Mr. Goldstein hired by ???? has now reduced his tactics of opposing the rezoning to personal attacks on individuals who are in support of that effort. It is sad indeed that a lawyer and those in opposition should have to stoop to such tactics.
Guest Editorial (Continued from page 2)
Greyhound Bus Station out of the West Side; and the West-side Action Council and Staff is trying to make this a better place to live.
Whos Against It?
All these groups, and many more, support the rezoning to save our neighborhood. So whos against it and why? I dont know most of those against it, Ive never seen them before. Are they my neighbors? I dont think so, because I know my neighbors. Meetings of those against the rezoning have been held at the local Labor Union. I thought the Union was for people, but I guess not. Ive also seen some business people at these meetings. Are they the ones paying that fancy lawyer who thinks we live in a slum, or paying for some Planning Expert to fly in from out of town to tell us that our community should be full of high-rises.
Its time people came forward to state their minds. Ive said my piece and hope that youll look around too, and see why we have to stick together as West Siders to save our neighborhood.
THATS WHY IM IN FAVOR OF REZONING

Action Ministry Asked to
Porticipote in Other Agencies
Two Denver action groups have recently requested representation from the Westside Action Ministry. These two groups are the Coordinating Committee and the Church Community Service Board of the Colorado Council of Churches. The Rev. Kermit Derstine of First Mennonite Church has been appointed as the Action Ministrys representative to the Coordinating Committee. Fr. T. Fransiscus of St. Josephs is temporary representative to the Church Community Service Board.
The Coordinating Committee is-recently organized and designed to bring the various denominations in the Denver area together on key issues. Hopefully, this experimental project will open up prospects of working together in areas of communication and social concern. The Rev. Derstine has been commissioned by the Westside Action Ministry to evaluate this project and especially in what it can offer to the residents of the Westside.
The Church Community Service has been in existence for some years/ It has among its stated objectives to provide a link between church and community groups. Recognizing that the Action Ministry has established this link on the West Side, CCS deems its participation valuable. The churches of the Westside Action Ministry while wishing to' be helpful to the larger Denver church will be looking to Church Community Service for valuable service to the West Side.
Topics discussed at the February 17, 1972 meeting of the Westside Action Ministry were: The progress of a Volunteer Service Unit on the West Side: Baker Junior High, the appoint-
ment of West Side Coalition representatives to the Recorder Corporation; the dental clinic at Morey Junior High; Rezoning; Summer Program for 1972 and the West Side Recorder. The Westside Action Ministry unanimously voted acceptance and welcomed Brice Balmer as a representative board member from First Mennonite Church.
Valentines Dance and LADS Raffle at La Casa
On February 12, at La Casa Del Barrio, 935 W. Eleventh Ave., Auraria Head Start hosted a Valentines Dance. Approximately 150 people attended the festivities, dancing to Mariachi Music and eating Mexican food provided by La Casa staff. The proceeds from the dance went for the purchase of caps and gowns that the children in the program purchase in the spring for graduation.
That same evening a Color T.V. was raffled off by the West Side Coalition and the Latin American Development Society, (LADS). The raffle was an attempt by both organizations to raise money to pay off some past debts incurred by (LADS). The groups were successful in raising $150.00 clear profit. Ed Cordova, a teacher at West, won the color console.
All in all the evening was one well spent. The dance and raffle truly show a community spirit that is unique in large cities, a spirit that hopefully will continue to grow.

Always Play It Safe
Springtime brings on a restless urge to get out of the house, to run a quick errand, to share a cup of coffee with a neighbor.
Fine. But dont leave small children alone in the house while youre out!
Hundreds of children die in fires each year because parents left them alone for just a few minutes, National Fire Protection Association records show.
Sometimes the children start the fires, playing with matches or stoves. Sometimes fire simply chooses this moment to strike.
For your childrens safety, always take them with you when you leave the house, or put them in charge of a competent older family member or babysitter.
Hay it safe, so youll never be sorry!
ARE TOYS SAFE?
Parent&must be especially attentive to the dangers that may come with a new toy. The Toy Safety Division of the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) reports 700,000 children injured by toys in the last year alone. A seemingly harmless toy can be tragically dangerous upon close inspection. Under the soft cuddly fur of a teddy bear may be sharp pins holding on ribbons. The button eyes could be pulled off and swallowed by a small child. Rattles that break and shatter are another danger for babies. Any toy with sharp edges can be very dangerous especially if a toddler should fall on it or rub it against himself. Pointed or projectile toys are often the cause of eye injuries. Many such toys should be used only with supervision and even then bows and arrows or firing rockets are difficult to control. Little girls dolls should be carefully checked to see that the clothing is fire resistant. Many such toys are easily caught on fire and in turn catch the childs clothing resulting in severe burns.
Parents should also' use their judgment in letting smaller children in the family play with older brothers and sisters toys. A child of 12 may well be able to play with a chemical set but his 5-year-old brother has no idea of the dangers involved, i
Many injuries could easily be avoided with a little caution and thoughtfulness on the parents part. Any unsafe toy can be reported to the local health clinics and the information will be passed, on to the FDA to be investigated and possibly banned.-
The Model Cities School Aged Children Program consists of back up teams working with the Neighborhood Mental Health Stations. The Center teams work as consultants to schools and community groups in working with children. Their goal is to promote a better mental health climate for all children in the area. Team members can be reached at their main office at 3102 Downing Street (telephone 623-4395) or through the neighborhood mental health clinics Northwest Mental Health Center at 2215 W. 30th Avenue (telephone 433-8676) and Westside Mental Health Clinic at 990 Federal (telephone 292-9690).

On February 3, the children will be making sopapillas in the morning class. We hope the children will enjoy making them as much as they did making the tortillas.
Greenlee Bi-lingual Program
Uses Student Tutors
Grace Quesada teaching English to Sandra Cruz at Greenlee School.

Gilbert also spends time outside of school with Melchor and is being a friend as well as a student tutor. Ana Manzanares practices and teaches English to Rosa Aguilera. Ana is teaching Rosa
her letters and her numbers. Grace Quesada has taken her pupil, Sandra Cruz, on tours of Greenlee. William Martinez is a student tutor for Leo Rodriguez. They use a tape recorder frequently and have made up puppet shows in English and Spanish.
The purpose of the Greenlee student tutor program is to teach non-English speaking children English, and to also be their friends and helpers. Thanks to these students and their teachers for giving their cooperation and time.
We extend our condolences to the family' of John Sanchez, of 1435 Lipan Street. Mr. Sanchez, a graduate of West High School and a Vietnam veteran, passed away February 23,1972.

Idema is now with Legal Aid Society oT GVand Rapids and Kent County, Mich.
Mattie serves as vice-president of the South Lincoln Park resident council. Her comment on her community involvement is I love people, like to see them have a nice place to live in, a nice neighborhood. Ours could be better if everyone would try a little harder.
School work at Fairmont these days is done to the accompaniment of much noise and constant vibration. It is annoying and distracting, but exciting also as it means that our new addition is now in progress. Since ground breaking on Feb. 7, work has proceeded rapidly.
Another new sound at Fairmont this year is that of children singing regularly. This is the first time that we can remember that Fairmont has had a regular music teacher and everyone is singing! Mr. Bob Johnson, our teacher, is so much fun that even non-singers enjoy his classes.
A really terrific thing that he has started is the Fairmont Fifty, a choir of fourth, fifth, and sixth graders. Each pupil in it is there because he wants to be. They will give their first program the last part of March for their schoolmates at Fairmont. After that they will begin to give programs at other schools. They have already received invitations to sing at Smiley Jr. High and at three elementary schools.
These youngsters may be beginners at singing in a choir, but their enthusiasm and pride in their group is tremendous.
The Student Council at Fairmont is sponsoring an aluminum drive. So far they have collected about a hundred pounds of aluminum. If you would like to help you can donate aluminum beer cans, (the ones without a seam), and aluminum foil such as pie plates, TV dinner trays, pot pie trays, etc. Give them to your favorite Fairmont pupil or drop them by the school.

A new and welcome face is on the scene at First Mennonite Church. The Mennonite Urban Ministry has hired Brice Balmer to replace Don Schierling who is now working at Involvement Corps. Brice comes from Columbus, Ohio where he was attending the Methodist Theological School in Ohio.
Before attending the seminary, Brice worked in Cincinnati with the out-of-school Neighborhood Youth Corps in a clerical training center. He was also a research assistant with the Metropolitan Area Religious Coalition of Cincinnati (MARCC) for nine months. He directed two MARCC summer programs which provided work and learning experiences for college students. While part of Brices job will be among the various Mennonite Churches in Denver, most of his time will be spent on the West Side. He may be contacted at the Church Community Center at Ninth and Elati.
Although only in Denver for four weeks, Brice has noticed the friendliness of many West Side residents. Through reading the West Side Recorder, some of the important concerns for a residential neighborhood, good housing and an excellent educational system have come across. Brice is glad to be in a community that takes pride in itself and has worked towards community betterment.
The West Side Recorder welcomes Brice, his wife, Karen, and their infant son, Brent.
