Rogers twins, Padres rookie combine for rare, wild MLB feat

AN FRANCISCO -- Monday night's game at Oracle Park was a celebration for the Rogers family, but it turns out it was also a historic moment for a whole city in Colorado.

Tyler and Taylor Rogers became the fifth set of twins to play in the same game and first in 32 years, with Tyler taking the loss after giving up a go-ahead run and Taylor getting the save. The winning pitcher was Steven Wilson, a rookie right-hander who also happens to be from Littleton, Colorado.

That meant a historic night for the Rogers twins was actually a bit wilder than it first appeared. They became the second trio in MLB history to all be from the same hometown and get the win, loss and save in a game:

Littleton, Colorado represent! ðLast night was the 2nd @MLB game since 1901 where the W, L, and Sv pitchers were all born in the same city (Per @baseball_ref).@Swilson2436 ⢠@tyrogers2020 ⢠@trogers34

— Jeremy Frank (@MLBRandomStats) April 12, 2022

All three pitchers were born in Littleton, a suburb of Denver, but the twins went to Chatfield High while Wilson played at Dakota Ridge High, located about three miles away. Wilson then went on to Santa Clara, where he pitched well enough that the Padres took him with their eighth-round pick in 2018. He has made two relief appearances in his first season, picking up wins both times.

The Littleton reunion at Oracle Park proved to be short-lived. Tyler Rogers flew out of town late Monday night for the birth of his first child. The Giants put him on the paternity list on Tuesday afternoon and recalled right-hander Yunior Marte from Triple-A Sacramento.

Littleton leaders say Geneva Village tenants won't be displaced. Residents still worry

Low-income seniors living in Littleton's Geneva Village, a city-owned, age-restricted housing complex, say they are left with few options if a council decision forces them to move.Colorado Community Media met with 12 of the 20 residents living in Geneva Village following an April 26 city council meeting where proposals to sell or renovate the property were discussed with ...

Low-income seniors living in Littleton's Geneva Village, a city-owned, age-restricted housing complex, say they are left with few options if a council decision forces them to move.

Colorado Community Media met with 12 of the 20 residents living in Geneva Village following an April 26 city council meeting where proposals to sell or renovate the property were discussed with staff.

Residents have worried what might become of their homes since fall 2019, when notices taped to tenant's doors informed them that the city would stop filling vacancies in the complex "pending further decisions."

Though the property remains business as usual, according to city staff, residents said they fear being displaced by a sale or renovation in years to come.

"It's scary because you don't know if you're going to have a place to live or not," said Mary Hanson, 72, who has lived in Geneva for three years.

Other housing options may come with higher costs

All 12 residents said they live on a fixed income, either from social security or pensions. City staff estimates Geneva's 20 residents pay an average monthly rent of $375, though some pay more than $400 depending on the unit.

The average rent in Littleton for a one-bedroom apartment ranges from around $1,700 to $1,900 per month. None of the 12 residents said they could afford to pay such costs with most saying their incomes range between $1,300 to $1,500 per month.

But affordable options are available for residents who may need to leave, said Corey Reitz, executive director for South Metro Housing Options, Littleton's housing authority.

South Metro owns and manages several affordable properties around Littleton including Bradley House, Allison Court and Amity Plaza. Though the average rent offered ranges from just under $1,000 to more than $3,000 per month, eligible renters will see much of this subsidized, Reitz said.

Rents for those three properties are around $400 to $500 per month, according to Reitz, meaning some Geneva residents could see a more than $100 increase in rents if they choose to apply.

“Those would be great opportunities for the Geneva residents,” Reitz said.

Another option, posed by council member Jerry Valdes, is for residents to apply for housing vouchers and get on waitlists for other subsidized housing.

"I'd recommended the folks that live over there that they should apply for Section 8 vouchers or site-based vouchers ... because that's where ultimately I'm thinking this is going to go," Valdes said during the April 26 council meeting.

Two residents who said they'd inquired about vouchers and subsidized housing said waitlists are full and there were no more vouchers left, at least not for subsidized housing in Littleton.

Reitz said South Metro's housing has seen waitlists open for its various properties several times over the past year, though it can take years for someone to be placed. Currently, a waitlist is open for units at Powers Circle Apartments, and Reitz said Alyson Court Homes will see a waitlist open within the next month, urging residents to apply.

But the 12 residents who met with Colorado Community Media said they don't see another alternative if they're forced to move, especially with waitlists that can take years to find someone a new home.

"We'd be on the street," said Carol "Smitty" Smith, 83, who has lived in Geneva for 15 years.

Issues have been building for years

The property's future has long been uncertain.

Built in 1964 and owned by the city since 1975, Geneva Village had been managed through South Metro until it handed the responsibility to the city in 2019.

South Metro, in a March 2019 letter to city council, said because Geneva Village's rents were so low it couldn't guarantee it could afford to comply with a legal mandate to provide “safe and sanitary dwelling accommodations.”

The city, which has heavily subsidized the property to the tune of $123,000 per year according to staff, has pondered raising the property's rents, but those efforts have stalled in the face of past opposition from residents and other community members. The city estimates it loses more than $34,000 per year from subsidizing the property.

Littleton City Manager Mark Relph called Geneva Village's issues "the city's fault," and said "we haven't managed it properly."

Now city officials and council are looking at other options which include possibly selling the property to a private developer, which would almost certainly see the existing units scrapped for new ones, or renovating the site.

The cost of renovation is estimated to be $2.8 million, though it could exceed $3 million due to inflation according to Public Works Director Keith Reester.

Residents have said it's unnecessary for the city to spend that much money, though Reester said it's what's needed to elevate the homes to a better living standard.

City staff have expressed concerns over the units' conditions. A city assessment of several vacant homes showed each had asbestos tile underneath carpeting. Lead paint and electrical issues were also identified, according to Reester.

Reester said while no homes that are currently occupied were assessed, he is confident the findings of the vacant units apply to all homes in Geneva Village.

“We know that if there are five units in a building, and we look at two of them, there are the same characteristics in the other three," Reester said.

Residents have pushed back, maintaining their homes are "just fine," said Robyn Bernstein, 68, who has lived in Geneva for five years. None of the 12 residents thought their homes were unsafe or not up to a livable standard.

Mayor Kyle Schlachter and Mayor Pro Tem Gretchen Rydin visited Geneva Village in early March to speak with residents and see the conditions of units.

Schlachter said what he saw was "very nice, very clean” and that there “didn’t seem to be many fixes that were glaringly obvious.”

But he also said issues are likely hidden beneath the surface, such as the asbestos tiles, and said he trusts city staff's assessment of the site's needs.

Councilmember Stephen Barr said while residents may not see issues, he is "not comfortable having folks be in a place with exposures of lead paint and asbestos.

“Regardless of how your tenants feel, it is our responsibility as a city to do what is correct, what is healthy, what is safe for our residents," Barr said.

As residents worry, Schlachter said their safety and security are top of mind for the city and assured them that they would be housed if forced to move.

“This idea that the city would just kick people out onto the street is just inaccurate,” Schlachter said.

Littleton Public Schools breaks ground on new elementary building

District leaders for Littleton Public Schools broke ground May 9 on a new elementary school that will replace Ralph Moody Elementary and open its doors fall 2023.

The new school, called Little Raven, will consolidate the students and staff of Ralph Moody and East Elementary School and could serve more than 600 students, according to district spokesperson Diane Leiker.

Construction is expected to begin this summer.

The groundbreaking comes just more than a year after the district's board of education voted to close both schools, citing declining enrollment rates due to families struggling with the city's high housing costs.

By consolidating the communities of Moody and East, LPS leaders believe they will be able to provide more comprehensive service and relieve staffing strain.

"We couldn't have done this without a board of education who saw a different vision for the future of LPS and understood that at some point in time you have to start reinvesting in the infrastructure of our school district," Superintendent Brian Ewert said.

The site, located at Windermere Street and Weaver Avenue, may also be a neighborhood that sees an increase in higher-density housing in the years to come, according to past conversations board members have had with city officials. It could lead to a renewal in enrollment and, with that, more money for district resources.

The new school, expected to cost between $35 million and $38 million, will be paid for with money raised through a district bond effort that voters approved in November 2018.

Measure 4A allowed LPS to raise $298 million for a slew of projects including new construction for aging schools with new construction, continued repair and upkeep of others and the creation of a career and technical education and innovation center.

"Without a board of education and a community that supports forward thinking and future thinking for LPS, this would not have happened," Ewert said.

School board President Robert Reichardt thanked voters who approved Measure 4A and said "voters showing their faith in us and our ability to manage their money well," proved imperative to Little Raven's creation.

"The main message I want to convey is how grateful I am to members of our community," Reichardt said.

Stolen Box Trailer Contains Colorado Model Railroad Setup That Took Years Of Effort

(CBS4) – In the basement of Ken Cook’s Littleton home, trains in a model railroad display chug circles through carefully constructed mountains and miniature buildings.

(CBS4) – In the basement of Ken Cook’s Littleton home, trains in a model railroad display chug circles through carefully constructed mountains and miniature buildings. Friend Bill Thomas wonders what happened.

“We’re all in a little bit of shock. Because this was not something that would be high value for anybody else to steal.”

They are hoping to get back the trailer that contains the expansive model railroad setup they bring to people.

“We try to go to venues where people aren’t necessarily expecting to see a train layout and expand the hobby that way,” said Cook.

Often they are the biggest draw with the 40 foot by 16 foot display.

It’s been missing since Sunday.

Thomas went to the Appogee Industrial Park in Watkins in eastern Arapahoe County to pick up the loaded box trailer that contains the whole setup they call a module. It wasn’t where they’d left it.

“Then I saw the chocks that we put under the wheels, the block, etc. And it clicked that the trailer was gone.”

A lock on the hitch was knocked off.

“They had snapped it off with something big and strong,” said Thomas.

The group calls the setup the Slick-X Line.

“It stands for Steve, Larry, Chuck, Ken, Xavier,” said Cook.

The group is now seven model railroading enthusiasts. They built the display 14 years ago. It took two years. Each year since they’ve tried to make improvements. The thousands of hours are difficult to count. The value hard is to figure. It’s not something you sell. The value to the group is in the joy it brings when they set up the display and show it to wide-eyed children and older people who remember the times when railroads were dominant.

“It’s much higher. You can’t touch that.”

Thomas says there are a lot of trailers stored at the industrial park — even others that look similar. He wonders if someone thought it might contain something they could use.

“If they didn’t expect to find this in the trailer, and therefore it means nothing to them, it means everything to us,” said Cook. “And that’s why we want it back intact.”

The trailer is a 2009 Haulmark. It’s a 16 foot long box trailer with a roll-up door in the back and a 4 foot door on the side. Inside, it’s set up to contain the huge module.

“We built shelves in the trailer and the modular layout is designed to come apart,” said Cook.

It takes about three hours to set up. The display itself fills many display areas.

“Forty feet by sixteen feet. With unbelievable choreographed scenery,” said Thomas.

They were headed to Cheyenne for next weekend to set up again at Depot Days at the city’s historic train depot. Other visits are scheduled in the months ahead. But now they’ll have to be canceled. The men figure rebuilding is not possible.

“That module is what we put our hearts into 14 years ago and we don’t have the time, the energy, to re-do it. It can’t be redone,” said Cook.

They are not as young as they were.

“To build another layout I’d have to say is pretty unlikely at this point,” said Thomas.

The Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office is working to obtain video from a company at the industrial complex that may show the theft in action. It’s not yet clear exactly when the trailer was stolen.

“I don’t know what their motivation is. I hope they’ll reconsider,” said Cook.
