An anxious cowpoke peeks out from the crowd of kids at the National Western Stock Show Stick Horse Rodeo on Jan. 26. More than 60 kids participated in the annual children’s event.

KIDS AND CRITTERS PHOTOS BY DEBORAH GRIGSBY The National Western Stock Show on Jan. 27 concluded its 107th year. It is always one of the biggest events for ranchers from across the country. Kids and critters make the show in Denver fun and always unpredictable. A quick look around the show found a variety of barnyard favorites as well as a few new exotic breeds making their way into the mainstream. Kids worked, played and gave it their best shot in the annual stick rodeo. Among the standard fare of livestock, many new and exotic breeds have found their way to the National Western Stock Show. Here, a curious Scottish Highlands bull takes an interest in the camera.

Dining for Women spans globe to give Sedalia chapter aims for local growth By Rhonda Moore

rmoore@ourcoloradonews.com The national nonprofit Dining for Women began with a goal to reach women in impoverished nations, one potluck at a time. The effort since 2002 has reached hundreds of women worldwide, with a collective giving model that has raised more than $2.1 million. Two Sedalia women hope to be part of that model, with a local chapter aimed for expansion. Betty Purkey-Huck and Sharon Padilla were neighbors and walking buddies who heard about Dining for Women and de-

cided to join the effort. The two, who have lived in Sedalia for 28 and 38 years respectively, found a venue at their neighborhood clubhouse for monthly dinners that double as evening fundraisers. The Dining for Women concept is akin to a girls’ night out, with a mission. Members are encouraged to bring a dish for “dining in” and invited to contribute their “dining out” dollars — the money they would have otherwise spent on a lunch or a night out — to the campaign. The money raised is pooled with that of more than 400 chapters nationwide to fund qualified programs that foster health, education, and economic self sufficiency among women living in extreme poverty. With 9,800 members, the effort was ranked in 2012 by greatnonprofits.org as a top-rated nonprofit. The organization aims for charities that provide aid in im-

poverished nations and has reached cancer patients in El Salvador, victims of war in Afghanistan and girls victimized by sex trafficking in Southeast Asia. “It’s like a learning experience because every month we reach two charities,” said Purkey-Huck. “Now that it’s grown so big our money doesn’t get lost in the shuffle. You always know there’s poverty in the world, but by helping all over the world you see changes being made.” The Sedalia chapter is aiming for local growth and is gauging interest among its neighbors in Castle Rock. The chapter has contributed about $1,500 since its inception. The number might seem modest but, once pooled, makes a difference, PurkeyHuck said. Dining continues on Page 8

After a 2012 that saw Hitachi, Dish Network and Children’s Hospital, among others, move into Douglas County, 2013 has started with a bang. In the first month alone, Charles Schwab, Redwood Trust and Visa have announced a combined 1,500 new jobs in Douglas County. What’s the secret? “I think a lot of it comes down to the fact that Douglas County has done a good job with property tax, has got a good business climate by and large, and overall statewide there’s a pretty low tax rate,” said director of the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade, Ken Lund. “We’ve got a phenomenal workforce and a great place to be. I think we can compete on Lund that basis.” That, modest incentives and a “get-it-done” attitude, Lund said, are what have allowed Colorado and Douglas County to haul in new business at an alarming rate. While other states may offer better incentives, Colorado has been focused Repella on saving prospective businesses time and money with top-notch execution to lure them in. “We competed for the Visa project with Virginia and Utah, two states that claim to be the best in execution, but we had a final contract with Visa before those states even submitted a bid,” Lund said. With each announcement, Douglas County becomes more of an attraction, too. “Every time we land one business, Hitachi for example, it demonstrates to other businesses, `wow, something is good there. If that business chose to go there, we should look at that area,’ ” said Douglas County Commissioner Jill Repella. “The more announcements we get, the more attention we get, and the more success we have.” Repella knows it’s all about the followthrough, though, and that’s part of the reason Douglas County has been so successful. “As an elected official I can pretty much say anything I want,” Repella said. “But if we don’t have follow-through all the way through to the end as they are experiencing going through the construction process and getting their business’ doors open, then our words mean nothing.” Bigger than the number of jobs that have come into the county of late — an estimated 4,000 in the last six months — is the overall economic impact. “Children’s Hospital came in with 300 new jobs and that’s about a $3 million yearly economic impact,” Repella said. “So do the math. We are talking significant numbers on local impact. That trickles through the entire economy and existing businesses benefit from that.” “From a state perspective, you see the difference in speed in Douglas County,” Lund said. “The metabolism of government is different. I see that because we are sitting on top of the whole state. You may or may not see it depending on where you sit, but we see it every single day. Douglas County, to Jill’s credit and to the other commissioners and other business leaders does it fast and that helps, because speed does matter.”

Castle Rock cuts back on meetings Weekly schedule goes by wayside By Rhonda Moore

rmoore@ourcoloradonews.com Castle Rock Town Council members have gained some free time by shifting from weekly meetings to a twice-monthly schedule. The change will start in February, fol-

lowing a unanimous decision initiated by one of its newest members. Jennifer Green, District 3, was the first to ask to revise the council’s meeting schedule. The process began in October, with a request for an evaluation that considered land-use applications in progress, the length of prior meetings and coordination with the planning commission calendar. The Dec. 11 vote established council meetings for the first and third Tuesday of each month, with no changes to the planning commission schedule, which meets

DOUGLAS COUNTY NEWS IN A HURRY Sheriff’s Office offers scholarships

A total of 15 scholarships ranging between $500 and $1,250 are being awarded by the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office and the Youth Education in Safety and Schools program affiliated with the department. The scholarships are limited to students who are permanent residents of Douglas County, are graduating seniors from a Douglas County public high school, accredited private high school, or qualifying home school, and who are enrolled to, or applying to, a vocational school, college or university full- or part-time for the fall of 2013. Information about the different scholarships, as well as applications, can be found at www.dcsheriff.net. Applications must be submitted no later than March 29.

Victim assistants sought

The Castle Rock victims assistance volunteer team is seeking volunteers to offer emotional support and crisis intervention to people who are victims of crime or other tragic events. The volunteers provide victims with information on the criminal justice system and other resources to meet their needs. At least one victim advocate is on call each day of the weekend and for evening hours during the week. A 40-hour training will be held through-

the second and fourth Thursday of each month. Councilmembers knew the abbreviated schedule could result in longer meetings and addressed concerns about public comment on agenda items with a high level of public interest. The length of the meetings cannot be predicted, but councilmembers retain the option to lengthen the regular meeting times, call for special meetings or extend meetings past the scheduled close, said Town Clerk Sally Misare.

During the November discussion of the ordinance, Green, who was elected in 2011 to a term that expires in 2014, had no preference for which weeks of the month council should meet. She was more interested on when the new schedule would begin. “I just like the idea of going to two Tuesdays per month instead of four,” she said. “When will this go into effect?” Beginning Feb. 5, town council will meet the first and third Tuesday of the month in the council chambers at Town Hall, 100 N. Wilcox St.

s Asbestos stalls fire cleanup Origin, extent of release under investigation

f the 2011 prefouned on

meet th in Cleanup in the wake of the fire at Castle 00 N.Rock Bike & Ski came to a halt after crews discovered asbestos in the fire’s rubble. A demolition inspector who discovered the asbestos spill at the building at 725 Wilcox Street in downtown Castle Rock reported it to the state health department, said Christopher Dan, communications liaison for the department’s air pollution control division. “A lot of the details are still being determined,” he said. “We haven’t received any formal notification.” Notification comes to the health department when a permit for removal of asbestos is delivered to the department, Dan said. At press time, no permit application had arrived, he said. The certified building inspector verified the hazardous spill in the unit at the bike shop and adjacent units in the building, Dan said. The building was built in 1976, according to public records, and was damaged in a Jan. 4 fire. At press time, the origin of the asbestos and extent of the spill remain under investigation, Dan said. The department

What is asbestos? Asbestos is the name given to a number of naturally occurring minerals that have been mined for their useful properties such as thermal insulation, chemical and thermal stability, and high tensile strength. The types of asbestos that are regulated are: Chrysotile, Amosite, Crocidolite, Anthophyllite, Tremolite, and Actinolite. Why is asbestos a hazard? Asbestos is made up of microscopic bundles of fibers that may become airborne when distributed. These fibers get into the air and may become inhaled into the lungs, where they may cause significant health problems. Researchers still have not determined a “safe level” of exposure but the greater and the longer the exposure, the greater the risk of contracting an asbestos-related disease. Some of these health problems include: • Asbestosis - a lung disease that cases scarring of the lungs. Eventually, this scarring may become so severe that the lungs cannot function. The latency period is often 25-40 years. • Mesothelioma - a cancer of the lining of the lung and chest and/or the lining of the abdominal wall. This form of cancer is peculiar because the only known cause is from asbestos exposure. The latency period for mesothelioma is often 15-50 years. • Lung Cancer - can be caused by asbestos. The effects of lung cancer are often greatly increased by cigarette smoking (by about 50%). Cancer of the gastrointestinal tract can also be caused by asbestos. The latency period for cancer is often 15-30 years. Source: Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, air pollution control division

confirmed asbestos was disturbed and released during the fire, he said. “When you have an event like a fire, depending on the age of building, it can be on walls, ceilings, floor tile or behind walls as insulation and piping,” Dan said. “In other units that received cross-contamination, asbestos needs to be removed. It’s not uncommon in circumstances like this.” The state health department is working on asbestos spills nearly every day of the year in Colorado, Dan said. Typical exposure to the public is through an airborne release and, once the building is properly secured, the risk to the public is “none,” Dan said. Tape and signs on the

building Jan. 22 warned of the presence of asbestos and prohibited access to the affected units. The town and fire department were not aware of the spill until the signs were brought to their attention. The town received a demolition permit request from ServPro on Jan. 9 and, by Jan. 21, the application was withdrawn, said Karen McGrath, town spokeswoman. The company did not provide an explanation of the reason for withdrawal of the application, McGrath said. Fire Chief Art Morales did not know if firefighters were exposed to asbestos during the initial response to the burning building, he said.

Business getting back to speed Neighbors pitch in after destructive fire By Rhonda Moore

rmoore@ourcoloradonews.com When Mark Neel recovered from the shock of watching a fire take over his bike shop, he learned something new about his neighbors. The notion of giving among Castle Rock residents was more than rhetoric, it was real. And it was the giving spirit that sustained him through the catastrophic Jan. 4 fire at Castle Rock Bike & Ski, his livelihood for the past 13 years. Castle Rock police responding to a reported burglar alarm arrived around 9 p.m. to find the building at 725 Wilcox St. ablaze. Authorities then called Neel, who was en route to check on the alarm. “It was the longest nine minutes into town I’ve ever had,” Neel said. “I was devastated, shocked more than anything else.” Fire investigators traced the fire to a potentially faulty coffeepot or waxing machine in the bike shop. By the time the fire was extinguished, the inventory lost to smoke and water damage exceeded $60,000, but Neel and his wife and co-owner KC Neel learned something new about their community. Neighboring businesses rallied around the couple to help them get back in business, Neel said. “You’re looking at everything, saying, `what’s our next move, how are we going to move forward, how long will it take to put everything back together,’” Neel said of the

With the help of neighbors, who arrived two days after the fire to help clean and retrieve salvageable tools and inventory, it took about nine days to put things back together. Castle Rock Bike & Ski relocated to 411 Fourth St. after the Neel’s received a call from property owner and local businessman Tim White, owner of White Construction. White offered space next to the Rink at the Rock while the damaged building is restored. Most of the shop’s clothing and apparel was lost to the fire, but Castle Rock Bike & Ski continues to rent and repair ski equipment and offers bike repair from their home shop. “It was such a wonderful offer,” KC Neel said. “The support we’ve had from everyone has been incredible. It’s given us the confidence to rise from the ashes and get back on our feet. “We’ve always known Castle Rock to be a special place,” she said. “This experience has really personified what makes Castle Rock special.”

Larkspur woman joins state education board Mazanec aims to promote school choice, support DCSD By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com

Pam Mazanec is passionate about school choice. So much so that the Larkspur resident is taking a seat on the Colorado State Board of Education, a six-year obligation she finds both daunting and exciting. “I think I’m healthily nervous,” she said. “I have a healthy respect for the job in front of me. I’m humbled and in awe of where I am and what I’m doing.” Mazanec, sworn in in early January, represents the 4th Congressional District on the seven-member board. Unlike most of the other members, she has limited experience in edu-

cation. Mazanec runs a small business with her husband, served as the president of Larkspur Elementary’s Parent Teacher Organization when her children were students there, and in the last couple of years became a supporter of the Douglas County School District’s education reform efforts. Pro-choice supporters, impressed by Mazanec’s enthusiasm, approached her about filling the seat vacated by former board chairman Bob Schaffer. “I was asked to run (for the state board) by friends in the choice community and I thought `Who? Me?,’” she said. But Mazanec, a former legal assistant intrigued since childhood by the law, quickly warmed to the idea. “I see my role as being a voice for parents and taxpayers like me,” she said. “My major interest is school choice. I would like to see more innovation percolate.”

Movements like education reform “go back to the founding of our nation,” Mazanec said. “One of the principles of federalism is, let states figure out new ways to tackle the challenges. Education is a big challenge for us nationally. We’re falling behind other countries, and what we’re doing isn’t the answer. We can evolve our thinking about education in this country.” Mazanec is a firm believer in DCSD’s voucher or choice scholarship program, which allowed students to use public funds to help offset tuition at private schools. The program was halted by a court injunction shortly after its 2011 introduction and now is pending in the Colorado Court of Appeals. As a state board member, she said, “I’ll represent Douglas County by supporting the choice scholarship program and any other avenues of choice.” Despite her belief in the

program, she respects those who question it. “It’s a fair argument to ask if public dollars should be used for that purpose,” she said. “I’m of the belief you can allow your child to go to private schools with public dollars and not harm public schools at all. I am interested in giving choice a chance.” She questions some of the arguments against DCSD’s reform efforts. “I think there is a lot of fear,” she said. “Fear of the unknown and untried is understandable. But I think we all need to practice some intellectual honesty. It truly is about kids and families. We want them to have the best education that fits them. Go where you fit, where you’ll grow.” Citing “motives like privatizing, destroying public schools, the notion there are evil folks trying to destroy public schools — I think it’s a false argument. It’s not about us and them. It’s about everybody.”

A school fundraiser called The Penny Harvest may sound like child’s play, but it is instead a monthslong exercise in thoughtful philanthropy. This year, five Douglas County elementary and middle schools are part of the program, together raising more than $11,000. The money collected last fall will be divided into several smaller pots, and given to nonprofit organizations chosen by the students. But it isn’t simply a matter of distributing checks, said Kelly Hayes, spokeswoman for the Young Philanthropists Foundation, which administers the Colorado Penny Harvest. A leadership group of students is selected in each school to narrow down nominated organizations and causes. They then ask representatives of the finalist groups to visit the school, and undergo interviews with the students. “It’s truly the kids that are driving this,” Hayes said. “Kids come up with the questions. So they may be asking, `If we give you

‘It’s truly the kids that are driving this. Kids come up with the questions.’ Kelly Hayes, spokeswoman this money, how much will go to the program and how much to your salary?’ and `Why do you deserve this over how many other people we’re interviewing?’” The answers determine which organizations are beneficiaries of each school’s Penny Harvest. Students at Parker’s Sagewood Middle School, who collected about $1,600 in their sixth Penny Harvest, now are in what teacher Liana Finn calls the project’s roundtable phase. “That’s where they’re deciding where the money should go,” she said. Past Sagewood beneficiaries have included the Make-A-Wish Foundation, the Denver Dumb Friends League and the Smile Train, an international charity that provides cleft palate surgery to those in need. The funds sometimes also go to causes closer to home. The parents of students who died created memorial funds, to which some of the money has gone. At another school, students gave money to help buy a wheelchair for a

parent paralyzed in an accident. Students learn lessons in both compassion and objectivity. “Students get that decision-making power, and some good discourse,” Finn said. “Some kids are completely passionate about an organization. Then it’s deciding how much should go there.” Of the five participating Douglas County schools, Roxborough Elementary raised the most money in the 2012-13 Penny Harvest with a total of $5,450. Other participating schools include Parker’s Mammoth Heights Elementary, which raised $2,225, and Lone Tree’s Eagle Ridge Elementary School, which collected $2,050. Castle Rock’s Mesa Middle School joined the program late, and still is in the fund-raising stage. The national Penny Harvest program has distributed more than $8.1 million in grants since its 1991 inception. For more information, visit www.ypfoundation. org.

Teaming up with Craig Floyd, chairman of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington D.C., as well as a slew of well-known folks in the film industry, he set out to create a film, “Heroes Behind the Badge,” to do just that.

Douglas County Sheriff’s Deputy Ron King died in May 1999 when he was hit by a drunk driver. He was the last officer to die in the line of duty while wearing the DCSO badge. File photo The movie, which just swept through Colorado this past week, including a stop at The Wildlife Experience in Parker, takes a long, hard look at the real dangers that officers face on a daily basis and delivers such facts as “an officer dies in the line of duty every 54 hours in the United States.” “Heroes” begins with raw footage from an Ohio trailer park on

furth said. “We made it real and raw and powerful with the intent to change attitudes.”

Hitting home

In Douglas County, the last officer to be killed in the line of duty was Deputy Ron King in 1999. More recently, though, was Kurt Ford, who worked for the sheriff’s office from 2002-04. Ford, who

was serving in Kansas at the time of his death, was killed in the line of duty April 9, 2005, just months after leaving Douglas County. “It was tough for all of us,” said sheriff’s spokesman Sgt. Ron Hanavan, who was sworn in alongside Ford in 2002. “He was part of our family. You feel the loss, but you also know how much the individual’s family has lost. I can’t even begin to have one-tenth of a small inkling of what they go through.” Hanavan said the department has had multiple officers shot at in recent years and others who have been severely injured in car crashes or assaulted by inmates. Members of Douglas County’s S.W.A.T. team were also present when Limon Police Officer Jay Sheridan was shot and killed in the line of duty in March 2011. “I wish more citizens would see a movie like this so that they can learn to appreciate that there are very few occupations out there that are as dangerous as being a police officer is,” said Kelly Young, president of the Colorado Chapter of Concerns of Police Survivors, an organization that reaches out to families of the fallen. Young’s husband Donnie, a former Denver Police Officer, was shot and killed in 2005 while on security detail at an off-duty job. For more information on the film, visit www.HeroesBehindtheBadge.com.

Class grooms leaders, builds bridges Douglas County program has personal, professional benefits By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com Erik Bostrom had to decide in a split second whether to shoot the suspects. He hesitated. “I got shot both times,” he said. The scenario wasn’t real — it was a simulation offered through the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office and part of a Leadership Douglas County class. It gave Bostrom a new layer of respect for law enforcement. “What’s really shocking about it is how attuned you need to be to the development of the situation, and the need to react,” he said. “It’s very difficult.” Bostrom was among 18 Douglas County residents who went through the nearly year-

long leadership class in 2011-12. The owner of Highlands Ranch’s Hand and Stone Massage Spa and a delegate with the Highlands Ranch Community Association, Bostrom wanted to learn more about the area. “If you’d like to improve yourself or know more about your community, it’s well worth your time,” he said. Douglas County, like all counties, is a web of interconnected municipalities, agencies, businesses and individuals. Leadership Douglas County helps its students untangle that web, and understand the connections. “I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard a class participant say after the program, `I used to be a resident of Castle Rock. Now, I’m a resident of Douglas County,’” said Melissa Moroni, vice president of programs for the Castle Rock Chamber of Commerce. “They see there are so many entities that collaborate that affect all of us.” The Castle Rock Chamber established the program in 1999. The $495 fee includes monthly, daylong classes that begin Sep-

tember and end in June. The program offers its students hands-on education about Douglas County’s resources and helps develop leadership skills in both classroom and field trip sessions. During the law enforcement session, students participated in the video simulator Bostrom described, among other things. In exploring emergency services, they donned firefighter bunker gear and held a charged fire hose as part of an exercise. During trust-building sessions, they climbed a rock wall. In the classroom, topics run the gamut from hydraulic fracturing to Colorado history. “The goal is to identify, educate and motivate current and emerging leaders,” Moroni said. “People apply for different reasons. For some people, there’s a personal growth aspect. There’s a leadership growth aspect. Then there’s a connection aspect.” That aspect clicked for City of Lone Tree spokeswoman Kristen Knoll. “The biggest benefit to the program is the networking opportunities,” she said. “I

use my classmates as a resource professionally. You get to know people you wouldn’t have a connection to otherwise.” Moroni said she’s watched the program change lives, with students who changed careers, decided to study abroad and found renewed purpose. While many students are employed with government entities, the program includes a cross-section of individuals. Bostrom believes it builds vital bridges. “There’s so much animosity in today’s news and government organizations,” he said. “The politics that goes on trickles all the way down to the county level. But when we’re able to get together and have conversations, I think we find good solutions.” Leadership Douglas County asks participants for a two-year commitment. Students who graduate from the first year of the program are invited to serve on a steering committee that helps direct the next class.

Boys credited for saving man with dementia Man had been wandering streets at night in cold temps By Chris Michlewicz

cmichlewicz@ourcoloradonews.com Two quick-thinking Parker boys are being credited with possibly saving the life of a man with dementia. The temperature was hovering around zero at 2:30 a.m. Jan. 14 when Hunter Hicken, 13, heard the sound of a suitcase being dragged on the ground. When he looked out his window, he saw a man walking down the middle of his street in the Timbers subdivision. Hunter awoke his twin brother, Mason, and they watched quietly, unsure if the man was simply taking out the trash late at night. But they soon realized something was wrong when the man stopped and stood motionless at the end of a driveway. The two Boy Scouts’ training kicked in and Mason ran to alert his sleeping father while Hunter kept an eye on the man. “They taught us in Boy Scouts to always be aware and be prepared” and to notify an adult when seeing something out of the ordinary, Mason said. The boys’ dad, Phil, went outside and

found a 79-year-old man who was not wearing a hat or gloves. They later discovered that the man suffers from dementia, a brain disorder characterized by memory loss. He was out from California visiting his son, who lives one block from the Hickens. “He had been walking around for some time and was lost in the neighborhood,” said Lisa Hicken, the boys’ mother. A Douglas County Sheriff’s Office spokesman said the man was able to remember his name and was later reunited with his son. Because of the frigid temperatures, a deputy who responded to the scene said the story might have had a tragic ending if the boys had not intervened, Hicken said. When asked what it’s like playing a part in saving a person’s life, the Sagewood Middle School students say they feel pretty good. Luckily, Hunter was lying wide awake in bed, unable to sleep, when he heard the strange noise from outside. “It’s kind of amazing that it worked out the way it did,” he said. “It could have been different.”

s Panel OKs immigrant tuition measure

Legislation would gramhelp undocumented nged ound students with college

sionuldn’t

Yesenya Saucedo fought back tears day’s Thursday as she recalled being laughed at ,” he in kindergarten, and feeling “clueless and es all dumb” because of her struggles to speak when English. nverNow, several years after her family ” brought Saucedo to the U.S. illegally, she is rticiwell on her way to graduating from Denver’s dents Bruce Randolph School this spring — with pro23 college credits under her belt, to boot. com“What I have done is what I’ve been asked, and even a little bit more,” she said rmaduring her testimony before a Colorado webGeneral Assembly committee hearing on a bill to which she is tying her college and career hopes. Saucedo wants to go to college, but because she is an undocumented student, she cannot afford to pay the hefty, out-of-state tuition rate to attend a Colorado school. But there remains hope for Saucedo, because the Senate bill that’s been dubbed ASSET — Advancing Students for a Stronger Economy Tomorrow — has cleared its first legislative hurdle. The bill — which would allow illegal immigrants to pay the same tuition at state colleges and universities as other students

Civil-unions bill moves ahead Draft would not allow adoption agencies to opt out By Vic Vela

vvela@ourcoloradonews.com Jeremy Simon is only 5 years old, but his knowledge of what was happening inside a Colorado Capitol committee hearing room Jan. 23 might already make him qualified to teach a civics class. “They’re trying to change the law,” he said, when asked what was happening that day. And what makes the law important? “So my moms can be together,” Jeremy said. Young Jeremy was one of many people who packed the Old Supreme Court Capitol Chambers inside the Capitol to hear, and Report to provide testimony on, what has long been a contentious issue: civil unions for gay couples. As expected, the bill — which would allow gay couples to enter into commitments that are similar to marriage — passed the five-member Senate Judiciary Committee along party lines, following a hearing that lasted more than four hours. The bill will now head to another committee in the Senate and is expected to ultimately become law, because of the Democratic-controlled Legislature. The bill’s sponsor, openly gay Sen. Pat Steadman, D-Denver, whose district includes part of Arapahoe County, said the legislation would recognize “the love between committed couples.” “When two people are lucky enough to have found someone they want to spend the rest of their lives with, why should the state of Colorado stand in the way?” Steadman said during his testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee. The bill could allow gay couples to begin the steps of entering into civil unions on May 1. They would be afforded many legal, medical and property rights, as well as the ability to adopt children. However, the bill does not allow gay couples in civil unions to file joint tax returns, at least until “statutory change is enacted,” according to the bill. Last year’s version of the bill died in a separate, Republican-controlled commit-

tee. “Today, you have the opportunity to finish what should have been started nine months ago,” said Brad Clark of Colorado One, a gay, bisexual and transgender advocacy group. Clark was one of many people who testified in support of the bill, several of whom offered emotional stories of having first met their partners several years ago — 17 years for Brian Bowles of Denver. “This is a human issue,” Bowles testified. “The greatest thing we have is love.” Jean Fredland of Adams County testified that, to her knowledge, none of her children or grandchildren is gay. But she equated the battle over civil unions as “a civil rights issue,” and said the opposition to the bill is offering “the same arguments I heard against civil rights in the ‘60s and ‘70s.” Meanwhile, there were plenty of critics who spoke out against the bill. And they were particularly upset that — unlike last year’s version — the bill does not exempt adoption agencies with religious convictions against same-sex unions from placing children with those couples. Kellie Fiedorek of the conservative, Arizona-based Alliance Defending Freedom, said judges and business owners who object to civil unions would be forced “to violate their deeply held religious convictions,” if the bill passed. Others who are against the bill were blunter in their opposition. Lisa Speer of Arapahoe County called the legislation “a canard.” “This legislation is all heart and no head,” she said. Republican committee member Steve King of Grand Junction — who, along with Republican Sen. Kevin Lundberg of Berthoud voted against moving the bill forward — asked Steadman, “Wouldn’t it be better to amend the bill to accommodate the religious beliefs of these people?” Steadman replied that he wouldn’t want to “enable businesses to put up signs outside their windows saying certain types of people aren’t welcome.” Steadman also brought up the point to some who testified that it wouldn’t matter if he amended the bill because they wouldn’t support it anyway. In spite of vocal opposition, the legislation is expected to pass easily this session, something that Democratic Sen. Jessie Ulibarri of Commerce City — who chaired Wednesday’s committee — says he will take pride in. Ulibarri lives with his partner and two children, and has testified every time the bill has come up, only to walk away disappointed.

cated students,” Hudak said. “When people do not have hope, then it is very difficult to

make it from day-to-day — especially children.” Sen. Mike Johnston, D-Denver, who is one of the bill’s sponsors, said if the bill becomes law, it would bring in about $2 million in net revenue to the state. Johnson said Colorado is forcing too many young people leave the state to attend colleges at neighboring states that already have laws similar to the one proposed in the ASSET bill. Once they graduate, they remain in those states and contribute to the economies there. “If we don’t stop to help these young people, what will happen to us as a state?” Johnston told the committee. One Republican committee member, Sen. Owen Hill of Colorado Springs, joined all five Democrats in voting to move the bill forward. Three Republicans voted no. Only one person testified in opposition to the legislation. John Buck of the Colorado Alliance for Immigration Reform called the bill “illegal,” and said Colorado citizens “want illegal aliens to self-deport.” “This illegal education bill provides one more incentive for illegal alien families to cross our borders and diminish our resources,” he said. The bill now heads to the Senate Appropriations Committee, before going to the full Senate for a vote. It is likely that the bill will pass the Democratic-controlled General Assembly.

Employers retain right to ban pot use Amendment 64 doesn’t override workplace rules, experts say By Glenn Wallace

gwallace@ourcoloradonews.com The passage of Amendment 64, legalizing recreational marijuana use – at least at the state level – may seem like a monumental shift in drug policy. But according to pot proponents as well as labor lawyers, not much will change in the workplace. “Amendment 64 clearly states that employers will be able to keep any enforcement policy that they’ve had,” said Mason Tvert, one of the co-directors of the amend-

ment’s campaign. Tvert, now director of communications for the Marijuana Policy Project, said that in the workplace, the pot status quo will remain. Employers that want to ban all drug use, including marijuana, would still be able to fire an employee who fails a drug test. “One thing that seems to be occurring is that some workers may not understand the scope of employers rights to continue to have drug testing policies and procedures,” Denver labor lawyer Emily Hobbs-Wright said. Hobbs-Wright said there is a Colorado statute that protects employee rights to participate in legal activities outside of the workplace, which has been cited by some medical marijuana users to protest a firing. “The problem with the argument is it

goes back again to federal law, where it’s still illegal,” Hobbs-Wright said. That is bad news for anyone at a drugfree workplace that was hoping to enjoy a little weekend weed. Unlike tests for alcohol that typically show levels of intoxication, marijuana tests usually indicate just that the drug has been used some time in the past. A standard employee drug urine test can be positive weeks after the last joint. Heavy users have reported positive tests even months after their last usage. “But quite frankly, I think employers will get away from firing and rehiring employees over off-the-job marijuana use,” Tvert said. He added that as cultural perception of marijuana changes he expects business policies to become more lenient. Denver Metro publication Westword,

which features a medicinal marijuana critic on staff, has announced that it has not, and will not conduct drug tests. So far, Westword is in the minority. A 2011 survey by the Society for Human Resource Management found 57 percent of U.S. employers conduct drug tests as a part of the hiring process. Any business that complies with the federal Drug Free Workplace Act of 1988 has little option over their marijuana stance. It remains a criminalized substance at the federal level, and any business or organization that receives a federal grant or contract must comply with the act. Likewise, any business with major safety requirements for its employees or the public will likely continue to follow federal regulations, since any accident could trigger steep OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) penalties.

Photo by Rhonda Moore The final award went to Dr. Jason Ortman, owner of Castle Pines Eye Care, who was honored as the business person of the year. “The chamber has really helped build our practice,” Ortman said. “It has really helped us become a part of the community and achieve success.” Chamber members and dinner guests also heard from State Senator Mark Scheffel, Douglas County Commissioner Roger Partridge and Sheriff David Weaver, who helped bump the numbers for the live auction. The chamber raised $2,000 in its live auction, with a Valentine’s Day package at the Inverness that went

for $600, and a sheriff’s office “experience” buffered by an offer from Weaver. The sheriff’s package included a guided tour of the jail, a ride-along with a deputy and 30 minutes of firearms training on the department’s computer simulator. When a single four-person package auctioned for $700, Weaver threw in a second package, with an extra incentive thrown in at the crowd’s request. The incentive was first approved by Weaver’s wife. “Are the handcuffs OK, honey?” Weaver said. “Yes, my wife says handcuffs are OK. They’re included.”

OPINIONS / YOURS AND OURS

Helping the nation starts at home Former U.S. Sen. Alan Simpson pulls no punches. He is crusty, direct, sometimes profane and he isn’t all that concerned with what people think of him. But he certainly cares about the future of this country. The outspoken Republican from Wyoming was in the Denver area on Jan. 21 to share his views on the topic he has grown synonymous with in recent years, the national debt. He has some complex, controversial and detailed ideas on reducing that $16 trillion mountain. But when Simpson took some time to speak with us before addressing an audience at the South Metro Denver Chamber of Commerce, what stood out most was his call to action for everyday people. “If you love your country, get involved,” he told us. We strongly endorse that message. And Simpson sets a great example as someone who has spent many of his 81 years being

OUR VIEW involved. He served briefly in the Army in the 1950s, was elected to the Wyoming House of Representatives in the 1960s, and served in the U.S. Senate from 1979-1997. In 2010, as the co-chair of a commission tasked with tackling the nation’s fiscal challenges, Simpson and Erskine Bowles, chief of staff for President Clinton, authored a plan that gained some popular support but not approval of Congress or the president. Simpson did not give up and is still taking on the debt, now as a co-founder, along with Bowles, of the nonpartisan Campaign to Fix the Debt. South Metro Chamber

President John Brackney, it should be noted, is a member of the steering committee for the campaign’s Colorado chapter. Brackney and the chamber, like Simpson, should be applauded for working to bring attention to the debt. So what can you do to get involved? Go to town halls. Ask questions. Write letters to the editor. Challenge your government officials when appropriate. Praise them when appropriate. These are basic, but effective, ways to make a difference as a citizen — whether your mission is debt reduction or saving a playground from being turned into a parking lot. And for young people thinking of going into politics, Simpson suggests they focus on the work itself and enjoy it, rather than worrying about climbing the political ranks. Don’t be afraid to start small, be it the local school board or the city council.

Be prepared to challenge and to be challenged. Above all, be prepared to compromise because politics is like a good marriage in this regard: If one side insists on getting his or her way 100 percent of the time, not much constructive is going to happen. But through give and take, things can progress, as Simpson knows, having been married nearly 60 years. “If you think compromise is a dirty word, don’t get into politics,” Simpson says. He knows compromise, having taken his share of heat from both the left and his own party. His politics could be viewed as too liberal for the GOP and too conservative for Democrats, and that’s just fine with him. Whether you like his politics or not, like what he says or not, Simpson has a passion for service. And for sharing that, we owe him a great debt.

Life means having to say you’re sorry I just bought my apologies at the Apology Store. I know I’ll need some this year. We all will. This is the Apology Generation. I am going to try to keep it down to 10 apologies this year. Not a day goes by that someone isn’t apologizing for something. Cheating husbands, cheating wives, celebrities, athletes and their schools, doctors (“Oops, wrong kidney!”), Illinois politicians, waiters who bring you a steak that looks like my friend Flicka. My grocery store apologized for selling yams that were marked as sweet potatoes. There’s an apology for the dust in the building where I go to see my therapist. “We’re making this a better place for YOU. Our apologies during construction!” I

haven’t noticed any dust or any differences. The elevators smell different, that’s about all. I blunder all of the time, and later regret it. So does just about everyone else, Smith continues on Page 11

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Thanks to those who gave

Optimism works — I’m positive Writing this column for the past few years has been rewarding and it is something I really love and enjoy doing. The email feedback each week is always tremendous and I appreciate you all so much. A few weeks ago the column I submitted about being careful because our attitudes are transparent, generated the most feedback of any prior column, and it was all 100 percent positive. Imagine that. The comments and thoughts were so interesting to me that I went back and reviewed comments and feedback from prior columns where I specifically addressed the topic of our attitudes. A very clear pattern emerged, as the community has been very consistent over the years, responding most often to anything that I wrote that had to do with a positive attitude. So I thought I would share several of my favorite quotes that you may be able to use, cut out, copy, share, and in some way keep them in a visible location as a reminder about the importance of staying positive and optimistic: “I am so optimistic I would go after Moby Dick in a rowboat and take the tartar sauce with me.” — Zig Ziglar “Positive self-expectancy is the winners edge. We must plan to win, prepare to win, and expect to win.” — Denis Waitley “Eighty-five percent of the reason we get a job, keep that job, and get ahead in that job is because of our attitude.” — Cavett Robert “A positive mental attitude will not allow you to do anything, but it will allow you to do everything 100 percent better than a negative attitude will.” — Zig Ziglar “You can’t be a smart cookie if you have a crummy attitude.” — John Maxwell “We have a right to choose our attitude.” — Viktor Frankl “The only difference between successful people and unsuccessful people is an attitude of extraordinary determination.” — Mary Kay Ash “A person can succeed at almost anything for which they have unlimited enthusiasm.” — Charles Schwab

“The message is clear: Plan with attitude; prepare with aptitude; participate with servitude; receive with gratitude; and this will be enough to separate you from the multitudes.” — Krish Dhanam “It’s our attitude, not our aptitude, that determines our altitude.” — Zig Ziglar These quotes have inspired me over the years, but seeing people with a positive attitude inspires me 100 times more than any quote I have ever read. They are a walking billboard of energy and enthusiasm, they bring light to the world, and by their example they motivate me to want to be better in all areas of my life. Investing in a positive attitude is like depositing money in the bank, the interest that we earn multiplies with each optimistic and positive outlook we deposit into our minds. Again, it was your response to previous columns about the importance of a healthy and positive attitude that created this column. My hope is that you will find one or more of the quotes above to be an inspiration for you and that you too will become a walking advertisement of a powerfully enthusiastic energetic passionate and positive attitude. Do you have a favorite quote about positive attitudes? I would love for you to share it with me at gotonorton@gmail.com and I am absolutely certain that this will be a better than good week.

I wanted to write to thank fellow Castle Rock residents who generously gave of their time and means to help impact thousands of hurting kids this Christmas. Together we were able to pack 11,360 shoeboxes — filled with toys, school supplies and basic necessities — for Operation Christmas Child. Our packed shoebox gifts, joined by millions of others, are now on their way to needy children in 100 countries. During the 2012 collection season, Operation Christmas Child reached a milestone — more than 100 million children have been impacted by the power of a simple gift since 1993. I would like to thank the volunteers at our local collection sites and all those who packed an Operation Christmas Child shoebox gift. For many of the children who receive

eventually. It took Lance Armstrong years and years to confess. In the meantime, he hurt and offended and admittedly “bullied” a lot of people, and he single-handedly ruined a sport, that may not be a participant in the next Olympics partly because of his actions. How can you sufficiently apologize for that? Or for Penn State? Or for backing over a roadie and killing him, which is what drunk Who drummer Keith Moon did? Practically every day we read something like this, “I would like to apologize to my wife and my girlfriend, and the entire (name a team) organization, and all of our fans, for my behavior at the Cleavage Night Club & Bakery the other day. It will be a life lesson I promise never to repeat.”

Or, “Maybe I didn’t really go on a meditative hike on the Appalachian Trail after all. I want to apologize to all of the voters in this state, as well as to my wife.” I guess the voters accepted the apology. The wife didn’t. I accept each and every apology. I know how hard it is to apologize and mean it. I accept the apologies but I may not forgive. It depends upon the offense. I have Autofill. It tries to read my mind sometimes. If I want to send an email to Ethel it will fill in the last name for me. Now and then it designates the wrong recipient and I am in too big a hurry to notice. Ay, caramba! Sometimes this costs me more than one of my apologies. I am very opinionated, and sometimes I express myself too assertively for the circumstances. A kid, solicit-

In England, solicitation has a different meaning than it does here, and it’s not selling magazine subscriptions. He might have thought he was OK to knock, since he wasn’t wearing fishnet hose. I should have thought of that at the time. Instead I suggested he sit down with a good book, the dictionary, as soon as possible. I’m sorry. I don’t know what for, but I am sure I can come up with something.

Schwab announces Lone Tree campus Company chooses RidgeGate after 18-month negotiation

ity to add jobs as we need them,” company spokeswoman Sarah Bulgatz said. “Obviously, growth is going to be very dependent on the economic and business environment.” The initial influx of Schwab workers likely will be from 9-to-5 only, however. Because the current employees already work for the company and are established in the Denver area, Bulgatz doesn’t expect many of them to buy homes or rent apartments in Lone Tree. Lone Tree’s Planning Commission gave the project a preliminary review during its Jan. 22 meeting, but the first phase of construction still must undergo review by both the commission and city council. The Rampart Range Metro District, which serves RidgeGate, already is moving dirt on Schwab’s future site. That includes construction of a new street that will feed into Lincoln at Heritage Hills Circle, creating a four-way intersection. The new street, Bellwether Lane, will extend south to RidgeGate Parkway, tracing the west side of Schwab’s campus. Bellwether likely will open to traffic in September. Schwab is headquartered in San Francisco, but has more than 300 branch offices and employs about 13,000 people in 45 states, London and Puerto Rico.

By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com The Charles Schwab Corp. will start construction of its $230 million Lone Tree campus in February, with its 2,100 Denver-area employees reporting to work there in late 2014, company officials said. Schwab is consolidating its leased offices in downtown Denver, Denver’s Cherry Creek area and Centennial onto a 57-acre site at the southwest corner of Lincoln Avenue and Park Meadows Drive. The property is part of the rapidly growing RidgeGate development. Negotiations with Schwab were ongoing for 18 months, with RidgeGate wooing the Fortune 500 company, along with several other metro-area developers. “It certainly ranks right up there with Sky Ridge Medical Center, which really launched RidgeGate,” said Keith Simon, Director of Development for Coventry, RidgeGate’s developer. “It was a great announcement to be made, and certainly a really

Ailing service dog gets wheels Equipment aids dog with spinal cord degeneration By Tom Munds

tmunds@ourcoloradonews.com It was a red-letter day Jan. 24 when Shenandoah, a 90-pound Great Pyrenees, was fitted with wheeled support so she can continue her duties as a service dog for Thornton resident Constance Hein. The cart was fitted by the staff of Rocky Mountain Veterinary Neurology, located in the Veterinary Referral Center of Colorado in Englewood. “The dog has progressive spinal cord degeneration so, while she can do some functions, she doesn’t do well traveling long distances,” said Dr. Stephen Lane, the veterinary neurologist specialist. “This dog cart has four wheels to provide support to the dog’s body, which will help the dog rebuild leg strength and stamina.” The doctor said it is sad to watch the 3-year-old dog struggle with the degenerative spinal disease. However, he wanted to say a special thank you to Doggon’ Wheels, the manufacturer, for donating the cart. He said the cart will ease the pressure on the spine

Owner Constance Hein helps her dog Shenandoah get use to the new cart. The equipment, fitted at the Vetrerinary Referral Center of Colorado in Englewood, is designed to help the dog that has a spinal disease. Photo by Tom Munds and limbs, and will help Shenandoah by improving the quality of life for the dog and help her continue to be a service dog for her owner. Hein said she is pleased Lane was able to provide the cart to help Shenandoah.

“I am in a wheelchair most of the time and depend on Shenandoah’s natural skills as a guard dog and the skills she has learned as a service dog,” Hein said. “She is able to still do many things like pick up things for me. But, if we go on a long trip like going to the zoo,

she really struggles.” Hein got Shenandoah when she was 3 months old. “Great Pyrenees are guard dogs by nature and Shenandoah is always right there beside me so I know I am safe anywhere I go,” she said. “I also trained her to do

things to help me. She learned to pick up things I might drop and, when I was out of the wheelchair, she was beside me to help me maintain my balance.” Hein said the dog did anything she would ask but, if they walked a lot on an outing, Shenandoah was in a lot of pain the next day because her muscles were not as strong as they should be. “When Dr. Lane explained the benefits of the cart to me, I felt like it was a new lease on life for both Shenandoah and I,” she said. “The cart will make it easier for her to go with me if we want to go somewhere on a trip or for a long walk. It also means she won’t be in pain the next day and I won’t feel guilty about taking her with me.” Doggon’ Wheels makes a wide variety of carts and products for animals of all sizes. The company donated the cart that was customized for Shenandoah. “We have been putting the carts to a number of uses for a while now,” Lori Fuehrer, one of Dr. Lane’s veterinary technicians, said as she made adjustments to customize the cart for Shenandoah. “We use them to help dogs going through rehabilitation and for animals missing limbs.” She said the cart is designed so adjustments can be made if there are changes in the type of support the animal needs.

The curse of the former Blue Rox Grill restaurant site is about to be broken, restaurateur Shane Purcel believes. In June, he will open the Mellow Mushroom in the same space that’s so far housed four failed restaurants. “We plan on totally redoing the building, and having a big patio with glass garage doors we’ll be able to use year-round,” Purcel said. “Tens of thousands of cars drive by there every day. It’s up on top of a hill. It’s got grew views of the mountains. There is no reason for a resultant to fail there.” The building, which opened in 1999 in the city’s Entertainment District, has housed Hops, Kassai, Grazio and the Blue Rox restaurants, all of them short-lived. It’s been shuttered since 2010, with inquiries from Fascinations, Hooters and others.

ning commissioner, who described the current building as bland and uninviting, thinks the colors may be keys to the Mellow Mushroom’s success and a draw for the Entertainment Center. City Councilmember Harold Anderson, who voted against the proposal, said the exterior colors were his only concern. “To me, colors like that get your attention, but I’m not sure if it brings people there to shop,” he said. “But I can understand why they did it.” Longtime resident Anderson said the gaudy appearance of some buildings and a desire to limit such designs played a major role in the decision to incorporate Lone Tree in 1995. That history was on his mind when he cast his “no” vote. Purcel muted the orange and blue to appease city officials, but wouldn’t let it go entirely. “If you look around the Entertainment District, they have some kind of crazy colors going on there already,” he said. “We have no interest in making a tacky building. It’s going to look good.”

The Mellow Mushroom, with pizza-tossing cooks and colorful decor, seems a good fit for the familyfriendly shopping center, city leaders believe. The 120-site franchise already has earned a reputation in the metro area with its Streets at Southglenn and downtown Denver locations. “There are pizza restaurants everywhere,” Purcel said. “But a good pizza restaurant is hard to find. Ours is different than anything else you’ve had.” The decor will be different, too. Purcel plans to gut the Park Meadows Drive building, add a patio and splash the interior with color. “In Centennial, we’ve got this psychedelic tavern look,” Purcel said. “In Lone Tree, we’re doing to do this retro ‘70s look. A lot of the colors, shapes and materials will remind you of things you thought probably never would come back into style — and probably never will — but it will be cool in the restaurant.” Exterior colors that include shades of orange and blue nearly proved the restaurant’s undoing, earning it split votes from both the planning commission and city council.

Stock show legend still at it Cockriel has run Parker training stable since 1955 By Chris Michlewicz

cmichlewicz@ourcoloradonews.com Even though it was 62 years ago, Martin Cockriel remembers his first foray at the National Western Stock Show like it was yesterday. At 86, his memory is still as sharp as the spurs on his boots, and at no point is that more apparent than when Cockriel recalls the day of his first stock show in 1951. “They had the stables outdoors and it was so cold, the water buckets froze in the stalls,” he says, punctuating his sentences with a signature belly laugh. “We started a fire in a 50-gallon drum in the middle of the hall to keep warm. The fire department would be there in two minutes now!” Reminiscing about the old days is made a bit easier by his comprehensive scrapbook collection and the dozens of photos

and honors that line the walls of his office in a 13-stall stable southeast of South Parker Road and Hess Road. The office is filled with familiar sounds: the exuberant whinnying of a prized horse, the soft meows of a barn cat and the jangling of straps and buckles. His trade is timeless, and it’s one that remains treasured in less populated areas of Douglas and Elbert counties. Cockriel is in his eighth decade of training show horses and has passed his knowledge to countless trainers who now operate throughout Colorado and the Rocky Mountain West. Over the years, everything except the western ridgeline has changed around the property where Cockriel built his “dream come true” red barn in 1954 on the side of Colorado 83. He shrugs off the development as “progress.” After selling the portion of the property in 1997 that houses the original stable — it was turned into Jackalope and is now Parker Country Market — Cockriel built the white stable with the red roof that stands today just up the hill. Cockriel Stables has downsized to five acres, and that suits the family patriarch

just fine. He no longer rides every day and has plans to retire in about a year. But make no mistake about his continued tradition of and passion for winning; it’s alive and well. He participated in eight shows over the summer, taking home various awards astride horses with names like High on Champagne, I’m Sir James and Catalytic. “He still gets a lot of anxiety,” says his grandson, Mickey Bacon, who works for Cockriel Stables and has won his share of horse shows. At this year’s stock show, Cockriel is showing only one horse. There were times when he would bring up to 25 horses to the event. In Cockriel’s mind, there is nothing that he has not accomplished in the industry. He has won convincingly across many classes with numerous breeds, most notably five-gaited American Saddlebreds. Longtime Parker resident Jean Bulger, who has known Cockriel and his wife, Barbara, for 30 years, says she is glad to see the stable still up and running. “And the fact that he loves what he’s doing,” she says. “He’s living the life.”

Motherhood, through 14 lenses Playwrights, novelists offer celebration of women

IF YOU GO “Motherhood Out Loud” plays through Feb. 23 at Avenue Theater, 417 E. 17th Ave., Denver. Performances: 7:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays; same time Thursdays Feb. 7, 14 and 21; and 2 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 10. Tickets: $18-$26. 303-321-5925, avenuetheater.com

By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews. com It’s a collection of scenes, written by 14 top playwrights and novelists, lovingly assembled by Tony Award winner Joan Stein and Susan Rose into 90 minutes of humor, nostalgia, emotion and insights into women’s experience. “Motherhood Out Loud” is in its fourth production and is a perfect fit for Avenue Theater’s sixth annual January devoted to women. Among the writers: Pulitzer Prize winner Beth Henley, Michele Lowe are Theresa Rebeck are listed with those involved as designers, writers, producers and those who came up with concepts, and despite the great number of creative

Cindy Laudadio Hill and Megan Heffernan talk in “Motherhood Out Loud” at Avenue Theater. Courtesy photo minds included, the piece flows smoothly as one work. Local actors Lu Ann Buckstein, Mehry Eslaminia, Megan Heffernan, Jeff Kosloski, Cindy Laudadio-Hill and Jane Shirley expertly slide in and out of numerous characters, starting

logically with a funny bit about delivering that little person in the first place. With minimal set pieces and mostly black attire, these six carry the audience from park playground to school to concerns about a son who wants to

be a girl, to adoption. There’s a nice piece about a gay dad’s experience with a surrogate mom and another about how to explain adoption. A Muslim mom, teens, pending weddings, in-laws, children away at war, family Thanksgivings, divorce and the perspective of a great-grandmother all follow on stage. The ending circles back to birth: “Oh my God, you are a person! We both cry. A new life had begun and I got to be there!” Directed to women and men, this is just a beautifully crafted bit of theater, skillfully directed by Bob Wells.

Denver newbie Tender Belly is bellying up to the food bar to showcase its pork products. If you haven’t porked out on their products, you’re missing a sweet treat. Tender Belly is a Cinderella story with brothers Erik and Shannon Duffy, who were born and raised in Iowa, where farmers created the gold standard of pork. While not farmers themselves, they come from a farming family, dedicated to the land and hard work. Entrepreneurial fires burned in both, along with a broad set of professional skills and most importantly, a love for good, pure, clean food and making the simple things, extraordinary. In 2010 they joined forces and started Tender Belly. Their business was an immediate hit — the lure of tasty bacon and other outstanding pork products was too good for chefs to pass up. If you’re hankering for Tender Belly pork products, you will find them at Cured: www.curedboulder.com/; Lucky’s Market: www.luckysmarket.com; The Truffle Cheese Shop: www.denvertruffle.com; or Tony’s Markets: www.tonysmarket.com. You can also check out Tender Belly products at www.tenderbelly.com.

Selby goes solo

If you don’t know where Jefferson Park is, now is a good time to figure that out because Corner House, located in this Northwest area, finally opened its doors last week. The anticipation has been building since November when chef Matt Selby, then at Vesta Dipping Grill, announced that this casual neighborhood eatery would be his next venture, according to EaterDenver.com. Since November, there were interviews with Selby, construction updates, space and menu previews, and even a spot on the Eater National 40 Most Anticipated Openings of 2013 for Corner House. Now it is open and will serve a small but carefully crafted menu for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Restaurants booked for Restaurant Week(s)

Hoping for a 7 p.m. reservation at Barolo Grill, Elway’s Cherry Creek or Ocean Prime during Denver Restaurant Week(s)? Prime time seats at those foodie favorites are filled. The menus for the 9th Annual Denver Restaurant Week(s) — Feb. 23 to March 8 — went live at www.denverrestaurantweek.com recently, and many of the most popular spots were “fully committed” (restaurant speak for “you’re out of luck, pal”) before the end of the work day with the exception of early (5 p.m.) or late (after 9) reservation slots. But with more than 300 restaurants already participating in the event that charges $52.80 per couple ($26.40 for one) for a three-course meal, there are plenty of eateries to go around. But, if you snooze, you lose. One way to check reservation availabilities is to go to www.opentable. com. “The great fun of restaurant week is gathering together friends, exploring the hundreds of menus on the website, and then experimenting and trying new restaurants or revisiting old favorites,” said Richard Scharf, president & CEO of Visit Denver, the owner and organizer of the event.

Book helps readers start new chapters Second, third careers are part of life for many By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com “Twenty years from now, you’ll be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do, than the ones you did do.” (Mark Twain). A comparable literary quote begins each chapter of a new book — the idea of a second career is not new. The newly published “Encore Career Handbook” by Marci Alboher (Workman $15.95) addresses a major change in our society: Instead of retiring, many women and men are reinventing themselves for a sec-

ond, and even a third career. Average life expectancy has moved from 47 to 78 years in the past 100 years and “growing numbers of baby boomers are rewriting the narrative of 21st-century midlife by crafting a new stage of work: the encore career for the greater good,” writes Marci Alboher in the first chapter of her comprehensive “Encore Career Handbook.” Alboher, who visited the Colfax Tattered Cover on Jan. 21, is a former career columnist for the New York Times and is now in her second career as vice president of the national nonprofit organization, Encore. org, which maintains a useful website and promotes its work nationally through education. The easy-to-read book is organized with frequently asked questions — and answers, work sheets, references to books and online resources on numerous topics. It of course

advocates planning ahead while one is still in that first career if possible, but also addresses the concerns of someone who has unexpectedly lost a job. It recognizes that financial needs will vary and helps with ways to bridge a gap between careers, and realistic ways to plan for future needs. Perhaps one has to do a disliked job for a time, concurrent with getting educated for a new career. Chapter 3, “What Do You Want?’” starts with Lucille Ball’s observation: “It’s a helluva start, being able to recognize what makes you happy.” Career transition involves internal assessments and then a period of trying things out in the real world. A series of exercises lead the reader to determining “What is your Encore Number?” (How much income is necessary for comfort?) Networking and self-presentation are addressed — with perhaps some updated

slants — followed by a chapter that pushes the reader to “Go Do Things!” “To try and fail is at least to learn. To fail to try is to suffer the loss of what might have been.” (Ben Franklin.) Uncertainty about whether something is right, or an unfortunate experience in the past, might be countered with a period of unpaid, or low-paid experiment. An afternoon or longer of volunteering or longer periods of internship, apprenticeship, fellowship will expose one to a new experience — and perhaps an update on related technology. A list of volunteer websites is useful. A return to school could be necessary to learn a new skill or update a rusty one. Alboher urges that you get acquainted with your community college, one of many options for training. Online courses are another.

‘Carry On’ carries on Ballet company, band bring back collaboration By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com Two years ago, Ballet Nouveau Colorado and the local folk band Paper Bird created a full-length contemporary dance, music and multimedia live performance called “Carry On” that won critical praise and sold-out performances. The collaboration will repeat this year, adding Parker’s PACE Center to its venues on Feb. 16, so a south-area audience can discover a truly unique production. Ballet Nouveau Colorado is committed to collaborating with multiple art forms and has worked with visual artists and other music groups through the years. It recently performed with a Baroque orchestra at PACE and elsewhere. To develop “Carry On,” the dancers and musicians worked together for nearly a year, weaving a nostalgic story of love lost and found. The band composed and orchestrated all new music (there is a 2011 album of this music) and BNC director Garrett Ammon designed choreography as well as creative films, projected in the background. Paper Bird, which plays a blend of folk, jazz, bluegrass and rhythm and blues, has been honored locally and recognized by National Public Radio’s “All Things Considered.” The Western Arts Alliance recently held a conference in Denver and “Carry On” was invited to represent Denver in a one-night performance at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House. BNC will keep its busy dance school operating in its present location and is raising funds to move the professional contemporary dance company into a central Denver building, which will be re-purposed into dance studios and offices. It will soon change the professional company’s name to Wonderbound, and the school will become Colorado Conservatory of Dance. “Carry On” performances will be at three area venues: • Feb. 1, 2, (7:30 p.m.); 3 (2 p.m.) — Lakewood Cultural Center, 470 Allison Parkway, Lakewood, 303-987-7845, Lakewood.org/CulturalCenter. • Feb. 8-9 (7:30 p.m.); Feb. 10 (2 p.m.) — Performing Arts Complex at Pinnacle Charter School, 1001 W. 84th Ave., Federal Heights, 303-466-5685, bncdance.com. • Feb. 16 (7:30 p.m.) — PACE Center, 20000 Pikes Peak Ave., Parker, 303-805-6800, pacecenteronline.ticketforce. com.

signed up to participate in 2013 with more coming on board every day. While the event continues to grow — with 339 restaurants participating last year, Denver broke all records for restaurant weeks across the country — some beloved fine dining spots opted out this year. Perhaps most notably, was the decision by Bonanno Concepts, the restaurant company owned by chef Frank Bonanno, to “86 its two white tablecloth spots, Mizuna and Luca d’Italia, from the Denver Restaurant Week(s) menu. Other lower priced Bonanno Concepts restaurants — Osteria Marco, Russell’s Smokehouse, Lou’s Food Bar and Bones — are still part of the program. “Frank gives his chefs freedom when it comes to menu creation and events, and the chef teams at Mizuna and Luca d’Italia have decided to decline participation in this year’s Denver Restaurant Week because they simply prefer to run business as usual,” said Lauren Hendrick, PR and marketing coordinator for Bonanno Concepts.

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com For nine days in February — Feb. 9-17 — one can walk into the Colorado Convention Center, inhale and pretend that spring has arrived. It’s time for the 2013 Garden and Home Show. A glance at the numbers involved is mind-boggling, but it all comes together after five days of labor to present more than an acre — 45,000 square feet — of assorted gardens, amid exhibits from more than 600 companies from 25 states and Canada. Fourteen separate gardens are designed by local landscapers and schools (Colorado State University and Pickens), including the “Flowers and Flight” entry garden with featured aircraft by Town and Country Landscaping. A special favorite is the “Trains to Tranquility Garden,” installed by Timberline Gardens, featuring G-scale garden railroad trains among boulders, trees and flowers. We received facts such as: 15,000 blooming flowers, 2,000 cubic yards of mulch, 400 tons of rocks and boulders — and that’s just for the gardens.

Home and Garden Show visitors admire a new flower variety. Courtesy photo Families can shop for new varieties of roses, water features for an existing garden, landscape plans for a new garden and numerous items for home remodel and repair. Wear your walking shoes to traverse this 400,000-square-foot show. A standard flower show is a regular com-

ponent and this year’s theme is “Out of this World.” Look for unique arrangements from about 60 garden club members. Also, look for “Experience Ikebana” in the upper lobby to the left of the show entrance during the second weekend.

An ongoing schedule of seminars is listed on the show’s website, gardeningcolorado.com, and it includes participation from Arapahoe Community College; Dr. Jim Klett of CSU, who will introduce the new Plant Select varieties; “how-to” on remodeling home landscape sessions by Alpine Gardens of Fort Collins and Greeley; programs by local members of ASID, Association of Interior Designers and more. See “Theater” on the website for a schedule. Each year, the Garden and Home Show organization awards scholarships to undergraduate and graduate students in plant sciences, as well as grants to community-related garden projects. In the past, Littleton’s Colorado Center for the Blind and Hudson Gardens, as well as Englewood’s Swedish Medical Center rehabilitation garden have received grants.

Historical actor coming to Denver area Noted Kentucky scholar, lawyer and historical actor Hasan Davis will portray ex-slave and soldier A.A. Burleigh at 7 p.m. Feb. 5 at Bemis Library, 6014 S.

Seance at heart of spirited farce Inept clairvoyant brings trouble in ‘Blithe Spirit’ By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com “Hail to thee, blithe spirit. Bird thou never wert…” The first line of Shelley’s famous poem “To a Skylark” provided playwright Noel Coward with his upbeat title for what may be his most famous play. In 1941, when the Blitz was under way and German bombs were falling on London nightly, Coward’s flat and office were destroyed. The well-known writer thought his audiences would enjoy something light and funny to help them escape reality for a few hours. On holiday in Wales, he wrote “Blithe Spirit” in five days. It played almost 2,000 performances on its first run in London in

1941 and nearly 1,000 on Broadway — and it has been extremely popular with professional and amateur players ever since. When performed by skilled professional actors, it’s fresh and funny more than 70 years later. The Arvada Center’s Black Box Theater stage is transformed into the elegant 1930s parlor belonging to socialite/novelist Charles Condomine and his second wife, Ruth. Steven Cole Hughes and Kate Berry play the couple, who have invited Dr. and Mrs. Bradman to dinner (Mark Rubald and Alex Ryer). Brian Malgrave’s set design for a country estate, with French doors opening from one side, is especially attractive and, as always, detailed perfectly for its period — down to the knickknacks on the mantel. Lighting and other production details are blended beautifully so it’s a distinct pleasure just to watch and listen. Maid Edith (Bonnie McIntyre) arrives at a run and is asked to calm down. In the spirit of researching his next novel, the writer tells his guests that he has also

IF YOU GO “Blithe Spirit” runs through Feb. 17 in Arvada Center’s Black Box Theater, 6901 Wadsworth Blvd., Arvada. Performances: 7:30 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays; 2 p.m. Sundays (Except Feb. 3, when curtain time is moved to 1 p.m.); 1 p.m. Wednesdays. Tickets: 720-898-7200, arvadacenter.com. The Arvada Center has opened a large art exhibit in all galleries called “Art of the State,” which will be open before and at intermission. invited local spiritualist Madame Arcati to come to dinner and conduct a seance with those “beyond.” Condomine says he’s “hoping for a professional charlatan.” Leslie O’Carroll brings a great comic sense to this wacky part — almost stopping short of overdoing. Doors blow open and with a puff of fog a ghostly figure joins the party — it’s Charles’ spiteful first wife, Elvira (Heather Lacy), who does her best to upset second wife Ruth, although no one but Charles can see or hear her. (She died seven years ago and is irritated that her backgammon game with Genghis Kahn was interrupted when she

was called to come.) Meanwhile, dance music from the period drifts in and out, weaving the piece together. The audience members need to leave logic at the theater door and just sit back and let events roll across the stage. Things break, float and slam and Ruth is continually offended by Charles’ cranky comments to the unseen Elvira. Lacy is by turns petulant, sassy and teasing as she competes for Charles’ affection. (By the end, he pretty much doesn’t want to be with either of his cranky wives.) Interactions with Madame Arcati contrast Charles’ rational approach to the world with her connection to “the other side” through a child “control” named Daphne. Arcati tells him her mother was a medium and she had her first trance at age 4. British accents hold consistently through this romp and pacing is fast enough that there are no draggy spots — although the piece does run to three acts. Director Rod Lansberry has brought us a classic bit of comedy, which is funny again and again when it is this well-polished.

Ice and age, no problem for 87-year-old skater By Deborah Grigsby

dgrigsby@ourcoloradonews. com When Yvonne Dowlen laced up her first pair of skates in 1939, Franklin Roosevelt occupied the White House. And now, almost 75 years later, the former Ice Capades soloist still hits the ice with poise and grace — even skating competitively. “It’s just my thing,” Dowlen said. “I love to skate.” Dowlen began her career as a professional skater at 13 on a lake in Evergreen. By the time she was 18, the Lakewood resident was skating on

a 20-foot by 20-foot square of ice at the famous Adolphus Hotel in Dallas. She even performed with the Ice Capades.h After Dowlen married and had kids of her own, she settled into motherhood, but wasn’t quite ready to shelve her skates permanently. “I took both my kids out on the ice and we made it a family thing,” she said. Her daughter, Sherry Dowlen, 49, also skates competitively and is a five-time U.S. Figure Skating adult champion with more than 500 medals and awards. The elder Dowlen said she’s lost track of her medals and has quit counting. The younger Dowlen said when it comes to exercise, her mother prefers the chill of the ice rink over “a sweaty gym.”

At 87 years young, Yvonne Dowlen still hits the ice at Family Sports Center in Centennial with style. She is a member of the International Skating Institute and is the oldest figure skater still actively competing in the U.S. Photo by Deborah Grigsby Yvonne, who will turn 88 in July, still skates as many as five times a week, and enjoys watching the

youngsters on the ice around her. “I’m just amazed at what the young kids do these days,” she

said. “They are so much better than I was at their age, and they’re starting so young, you know they’ll be good.” Yvonne, who was in Centennial Jan. 20 at the South Suburban Family Sports Center for the International Skating Institute competition, admits she’s starting to notice a few changes in her body. “Well, I’m noticeably more stiff,” she said with an impish grin. “And the leg doesn’t come up quite as high, and the bend doesn’t go down as low, but I just love to skate.” When asked if there will ever be a time when she hangs up her skates for good, the silverhaired beauty simply rolled her blue eyes. “Uh, no. I’m not planning on quitting,” she said. “I’ll probably wear out another set of skates long before I do that. FEBRUARY APRIL SPECIAL SPECIAL

eMoldovan orphans get shoes, hugs

Church members e pepiece take eye-opening trip

Five teens and six adults from the Parker church got a stark reality check when they ough delivered shoes, boots and socks to orthat h thephans. It was part of a five-team “Kids n’ Boots” mission organized by Texas-based t us aChildren’s Emergency Relief International, againor CERI, which first got philanthropically involved in Moldova when Russian officials . decided to no longer pay for coal to heat the republic’s many orphanages. Each year, in an attempt to stimulate the local economy, CERI purchases more than $120,000 worth of shoes, boots and socks from a Moldovan manufacturer. Church ettergroups are then charged with loading the ey’retrucks and handing them out to the estiknowmated 12,000 children living in orphanages.

‘Crazy’ gets personal with stories, artwork

ever s up lverher

Artistic approach debunks myths of mental illness

g on bably long

By Ryan Boldrey

rboldrey@ourcoloradonews.com “Crazy,” a lasting glimpse inside a disturbed mind, takes readers on a personal and creative trip through eight common mental disorders. Utilizing prose, various mediums of graphic art, poetry and clinical explanation, the book, edited by mother and son Tami and Michael Hanna of Adams Place in Centennial, is a one-of-a-kind view from the inside out. It is educational, but artistic. “We’re about debunking the myths of mental illness through words, art and education,” said Michael Hanna, 30, who like his mother lives with bipolar disorder. “This book is really all three of those things. We have text, we have art from people and we have information.” There are roughly 150 artists who contributed to the book, all of whom at one time or another have been a part of Adams Place — a “village” brought to life by therapist Tami Hanna, where those in treatment or past treatment can meet in a non-clinical environment, be artistic and help one another through nurture and support. “When we began this book four years ago it was following the accidental overdose of one of my former kids,” Tami said. “At the time it was more a matter of educating. People got together, hung out and educated each other, learned about each other and it was really powerful. When Michael came along he started putting it all together. “People came from all walks of life and perspectives; kids, adults, parents, siblings. It became a community. For us to be able to present this is really exciting because the people in this book come from this community, from right here. Even though it has a lot of darkness, I think the brilliance is there.” The book, which is in no way pieced together like a traditional textbook, takes an

Tami Leino Hanna and her son Michael Hanna coauthored “Crazy,” a book on mental illness. It includes artwork, writings and musings from numerous patients who have been part of Adams Place. Photo by Courtney Kuhlen educated look at the ins and outs of living with bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, OCD, eating disorders, ADHD/ADD, trauma and recovery, and also has a section on suicide. Each section begins with an informative look at the specific disorder and is followed by pages of accompanying art and writing that is identifiable with each illness. “It’s really more of a coffee-table book,” said Michael Hanna of the 272-page, selfpublished work. “Our target audience is anybody who is crazy or who knows someone who is crazy. People don’t talk about it, it’s a big stigma. So, by opening that up and getting people to talk, there’s this fostering of community immediately, because everyone knows someone who is crazy.” For more information, or to purchase a copy, visit www.adamsplacecrazy.org. Michael and Tami Hanna will appear at the first Douglas County Libraries Local Author Showcase, 2-4 p.m. March 10, at 9292 Ridgeline Blvd. in Highlands Ranch.

“They’re walking around with cold feet in 10-degree weather,” Lewis said. “The kids didn’t have basic shoes and socks and some get frostbite on their feet and hands.” For the teens on the mission who had never been abroad or experienced another culture, the sights were a wake-up call.

Lewis said the five seventh-graders who made the trip bonded with the orphans, whom they realized are not that different from them. “When you go on a trip like that, there’s a change involved in how you view the world and what you value,” he said. Thousands of orphans are institutionalized from ages 5 to 16, often because their parents cannot afford to feed and clothe them. Therefore, the other orphans become their family, Lewis said. The kids become attached to the visitors and it’s difficult for them to leave. Lewis is among those who wish they could stay longer and develop a longer-term relationship with the abandoned children. “You’re just there for a moment in time and you hope that something you do or say will have a lasting impact on them,” he said. “Or maybe just a hug. These kids hold onto you, they’re so longing for a sense of belonging and acceptance.” Having been on medical missions to Moldova, the headmaster of Southeast Christian’s private school, Vern Walters, M.D., connected the church with CERI. The partnership is likely to continue and the church plans to gather more congregants to visit the impoverished country. Walters’ ultimate goal is to implement a student leadership service program and integrate information about the volunteer work and cultural experiences into the school’s curriculum.

Winning a Thorderson family trait Rock Canyon junior latest in long line of talented hoopsters By Jim Benton

jbenton@ourcoloradonews.com HIGHLANDS RANCH - Lexy Thorderson comes from a family of basketball players. The 6-foot junior at Rock Canyon is carrying on a family tradition as the youngest of four sisters who have played high school basketball in the Highlands Ranch area. Eric Thorderson played basketball at Wayne State. He was a girls assistant coach at Highlands Ranch for three years and is in his fourth season as an assistant with the Rock Canyon girls program. Ali and Abby Thorderson played at Highlands Ranch and were on one of the Falcons’ state championship team. Both went on to play basketball at Weber State. Chole Thorderson graduated last spring from Rock Canyon where she lettered in basketball. She is now attending Utah State. “I watched all three of my sisters play,” said Lexy Thorderson. “I went to all the games. I played with Chole but I was pretty young so I didn’t play with my older sisters. “Now days if they all come home, we play a little bit.” Eric Thorderson moved his family from Detroit when Lexy was 2 years old. “Lexy has probably seen more games than most kids because we’d take her to games when she was 2-years-old,” Eric Thorderson said. “When we moved here Ann Strother was playing. Lexy has been totally submerged in the girls basketball culture. She understands the game fairly well.” Thorderson considers himself a lucky father. “Obviously having four daugthers, I know other families with four daughters,” he said. “I say, you know what, I could have been going to ballet or swimming. I just happened to get lucky and they wanted to play basketball and it’s something that I love.” Lexy Thorderson, who tore her ACL the summer before her sophomore season and was slowed by the injury during the 2011-12 campaign, is scoring at a 15.6 clip this season for Rock Canyon, a team that is fifth in Class 5A rankings. She is averaging 5.7 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 1.7 steals. “Coming off a torn ACL last year, I think it’s motivating me more to come back and show I can play this year,” said Lexy. Rock Canyon coach Robbie Ballard has watched Lexy mature. “I have seen Lexy mature as she dealt with rehab and the disappointment of the injury,” said Ballard.

I’m glad she is having a great year and she has worked hard the past year to get back to where she was before her injury.” Ballard claims that it has been fun to coach Lexy. “I have coached Lexy since she was a sixth grader so I have had the opportunity to see her

Rock Canyon, paced by Koslosky’s 24 points, won its eighth straight game with a 63-26 rout of Douglas County. THUNDERRIDGE - The Grizzlies took care of business in a 78-36 pasting of Ponderosa and followed by whipping Legend, 60-31. CHAPARRAL - Katie Longwell scored 16 points to help the Wolverines beat Castle View, 56-42, and despite a big second half Chaparral dropped a narrow 59-56 decision to topranked Regis. Katrina Bacovcin scored 16 points against the Raiders while Kyleigh Rees had 15 and Natalie Baker 14 points.

cy was there. We cut it to seven just before half and they had big 3-pointer. That was a backbreaker, a momentum changer. We cut it to seven with three minutes and had a chance to cut it to five and missed a layup. Hopefully we can learn from this.” Kolinsky, who scored several easy baskets and many coming after she took long passes to break the Mountain Vista press, had a game-high 29 points, junior Levy Thorderson had 25 points and McClarie, another, junior finished with 11 points. “I’m pretty fast and can run and we have good guards that pass the ball to me,” Koslosky said. “Mountain Vista is kind of our rival because we are both from Highlands Ranch so this was a big game.” During Rock Canyon practice sessions the girls shoot 15-foot and 3-point shots in a license to shoot drill. Players who make 60 percent to get the okay to shoot in a game. Thorderson, Koslosky and McClarie must have been accurate in practice because Thorderson made three 3-pointers and Koslosky and McClarie one each. Jordan Graff, a 5-foot-6 junior guard, led Mountain Vista with 14 points while Maddy Whetstone and Paige Keller each had 11 points. Karlee Schwartzkopf added 10 points for the Golden Eagles.

Quick start paces Jags to big win By Jim Benton

jbenton@ourcoloradonews.com HIGHLANDS RANCH - Rock Canyon girls basketball coach Robbie Ballard is a little concerned about his team’s habit of letting comfortable leads evaporate. However, if the Jaguars start the way they did last Tuesday night, it erases some of the worry. Rock Canyon jumped to a 20-5 first quarter advantage and went out to defeat Mountain Vista, 72-60, in a Continental League game at Rock Canyon’s gym. The Jaguars, ranked No. 5 in the Class 5A poll, improved to 2-0 in the league and 12-2 on the season while Mountain Vista saw its conference record evened at 1-1 and its overall record drop to 11-3. “The first quarter we came out pretty strong and then we kind of let down and let them come back but we pulled it out,” said Rock Canyon junior forward Kendall Koslosky. “Lately we have been having problems being consistent for the whole game but we are working on it.”

Rock Canyon came out with a trapping defense which led to eight first quarter Mountain Vista turnovers. The Jaguars cashed in on several fast break baskets against the Golden Eagles who managed to hit only two of 12 first quarter field goal attempts. “We talked about their transition game, getting back on defense and we didn’t do that in the first quarter,” Mountain Vista coach Mike Willahan said. “Rock Canyon is a good basketball team. They are a top five team in the state for a reason. They came out and were ready to play.” Mountain Vista trimmed Rock Canyon’s lead to seven points late in the first half but Erin McClarie’s 3-point basket just before the halftime buzzer gave the Jaguars a 36-26 lead at intermission. Rock Canyon scored the first 11 points of the third quarter to swell its lead to 21 points but with 2:54 left in the game, Mountain Vista had trimmed to lead to seven points at 63-56 after a 3-point basket by Chelsea Pearson. The Jaguars outscore the visitors 9-3 down the stretch to secure the win. “The first quarter,” Willahan mumbled. “We played them even for two of the next three quarters. It was my job as a coach to have my team ready to come out and play. “I’m really proud of my team. The effort and resilien-

Grizzlies snap Home teams torch vistors on rink Titans winning streak Mountain Vista, Heritage Legend falls for first time in six games By Jim Benton

jbenton@ourcoloradonews.com HIGHLANDS RANCH - ThunderRidge executed its offense to way it is supposed to be run early in Friday night’s Continental League game against Legend in the Grizzles gym. ThunderRidge, fourth in the state’s Class 5A rankings, moved the ball, screened, forced turnovers, sprinted to an early lead and was never threatened in a 66-54 win over the No. 10 Titans. The Grizzlies improved to 11-4 on the season and emerged as one of three teams with a 3-0 record in the Continental League. Legend had its five game winning streak snapped and fell to 2-1 in the league and 11-3 overall. “Obviously they shot the ball real well especially in the first half,” Legend coach Kevin Boley said. “We turned it over way too much. It seemed like every time we turned it over they converted, “We dug ourselves a hole and give them credit, they played real well. They shot well and executed well.” Five of ThunderRidge’s six first quarter field goals were 3-pointers

as the Grizzlies took a 21-9 lead after the first quarter. Hunter O’Neill, a 6-foot-3 senior, had three of the five first quarter 3-point baskets for the Grizzlies who forced six Legend turnovers in the first eight minutes. The closest the Titans could come to ThunderRidge was 10 points twice in the second quarter. ThunderRidge had leads of 18 and 19 points in the second half although the Grizzlies cooled off a bit with their shooting. In the first half, ThunderRidge was 9-of 18 but finished the game shooting 43.9 percent from the field. The Grizzlies hit seven 3-point baskets in the first half and had nine for the game. Zach Rush, the 6-2 Colorado Mines-bound senior who is ThunderRidge’s leading scorer this season, finished with 22 points and hit 6-of-8 free throws in the final 1:37 of the game. O’Neill swished five 3-point baskets and had 17 points while Joe Marucci, a 6-foot senior, wound up with 11 points “The way they screen and the way they move the ball, that’s the way you do it,” said Boley. “We need to learn from this game, we need to grow.” Senior guard Jonathon Cosmann had 17 points to pace the Titans.

skate to big wins By Jim Benton

jbenton@ourcoloradonews. com CENTENNIAL - It wasn’t a good night to be a visiting goaltender Saturday night at South Suburban Arena. Mountain Vista’s hockey team had 48 shots on goal in a 10-0 Peak Conference rout over Columbine and Heritage had 47 shots in the Eagles’ 8-0 Peak shutout over visiting Pueblo County. The Golden Eagles improved their overall record to 11-3-0 and remained in the Peak Conference title hunt with an 7-2-0 mark. Ryan Daugherty, a sophomore who attends Highlands Ranch High school, scored three goals in a second period span of 4:04 to spark Mountain Vista’s win. However, Daugherty insists he had help in getting his second period hat trick. “You have to have your linemates, no matter what,” he said. “It’s not like one guy is doing it all by himself, get the puck and you are always going to score. You have to have some help.” Daugherty has eight goals and 13 points this season. “I’m having a pretty good sea-

son,” said Daugherty. “It’s really the guys I play with, they help me out a lot. We do a lot of great cycling, we know where each other is at and we have really good chemistry. We help each other and it gives us good chances. If you get to the right spot on the ice, you have a chance to get a good goal.” Daugherty had four points in the game, the same as Cordt Fenstermaker who was credited with four assists. Bryan Hancock had two goals and an assist for the Golden Eagles while Brantt Heble had a goal and an assist. Mountain Vista goalie Joe Morgan made five saves in notching his second shutout of the season. Connor Crory, the state’s scoring leader with 43 points, and captain Scott Appleby paced Heritage’s win. Heritage, which lost a 4-3 overtime decision to Fountain Valley Friday night, is 8-1-0 in the league and 12-2-0 overall. Saturday night’s victory moved the Eagles into a first place tie in the Peak Conference with Air Academy. Fountain Valley (7-1-0) is third and Mountain Vista is close behind in fourth place with its 7-2-0 league record. “It was a huge win,” said Heritage coach Jeremy Sims. “That was our biggest goal to bounce back and get back in the win category.”

Crory, a junior at Arapahoe High School, had a hat trick with three assists to finish with six points and his highlight reel shorthanded goal in the first period was something you had to see to believe. ESPN would have loved it if the goal had been filmed. The Eagles were two-men short at the time when Crory broke loose to get the loose puck. Hornets goalie Brandon Crisp skated out of the net in an attempt to beat Crory to the puck. Crory won the race but fell to the ice. While on his back he reached to his right with his stick and knocked the puck past Crisp and into the open net. “There was a lot of hard work, just working hard trying to put the puck in the net,” said Crory. “That was pretty lucky, I’m not going to lie. It’s good to get some lucky ones once in a while.” “Our offense is playing well right now. The D (defensemen) and goalie are playing strong. We’re clicking on all cylinders right now. We really wanted to come out and play strong to get that Fountain Valley loss out of our heads.” Appleby also had a hat trick for Heritage and finished with five points. Jake Wener had a goal and three assists while goalie Jake Larson made nine save in posting his third shutout of the season.

RE/MAX Alliance in Castle Rock 303.663.9335 Direct 303.667.4322 Cell wecansell@me.com LimousineRealEstate.com Where were you born? I’m a Colorado native, living in the metropolitan area all my life.

My extensive knowledge of home construction, including home systems, repairs, maintenance and installation, help me to assist my clients with their questions or concerns. I continue to use the most current technology and add to my real estate credentials. I’m also on the Re/Max Alliance Relocation Team and the Veterans 1st Program, earning my Certified Military Housing Specialist designation. What is the most challenging part of what you do? Coordinating simultaneous closings to prevent double moves.

How long have you lived in the area? I have been a resident of Douglas County for 16 years. What do you like most about it? Watching the growth of Douglas County. I take pride in helping the communities grow by listing and selling homes in this beautiful area.

my wife, our two dogs, family and friends, flying & traveling.

What is one tip you have for someone looking to sell a home? It is a price war and a beauty contest. The market analysis helps you establish an appropriate listing price. Implementing your agent’s suggestions to de-clutter and depersonalize your home helps the visual appeal of your property. I also recommend using a Realtor who takes the security of your home seriously by using an electronic lock box. What is one tip you have for someone looking to buy a house? Make sure you are paired with a good lender who can prequalify you with your buying potential. Also, use a Realtor who is available to help you act when you are shown your dream home. What is the most unusual thing you’ve encountered while working in Real Estate? A gentleman called saying my sign was in his yard. It had been placed there as a prank. Therefore, I asked if he wanted to sell his home — if he had been interested, what a way to get new clients!

How long have you worked in Real Estate? My career began in 1996, with Metro Brokers, as a preferred Realtor with several local builders all over the metro area. This established me as a real estate professional with buyers, sellers and new home builders. Joining the Re/Max Alliance office in 2007, has allowed me to provide my clients with the best real estate tools, with the most recognized real estate brand.

HOME SALE REPAIR RESPONSIBILITIES M

any questions arise during the home-buying process. Buyers looking at homes that require a good deal of TLC may wonder who is responsible for the home’s repairs, particularly if such repairs are needed to secure a certificate of occupancy. Depending on the situation, there is no clear-cut answer. There is no perfect home, and things that are acceptable to the current owner may not be acceptable to the buyer who is looking to become the next owner. The home-buying process is typically a careful cooperation between buyer and seller to find a middle ground. The buyer may have to make some concessions, as will the seller. Ultimately, it is this cooperation that often determines if the sale goes through or is terminated. Before any negotiations can begin regarding repairs, it is adviseable for a buyer to have an independent inspector come out and look over the home and property. Most real estate agents will suggest

this be done as a first priority -- even before a contract is entered on the home. An inspection will unveil any potential problems in a home and indicate things that the buyer may not be aware of, including items that do not meet with code or could be unsafe. An inspector also may point out problems that could cause a mortgage lender to give pause. This may mean the lender will deem problems unsafe and refuse to fund the mortgage until repairs are made. A copy of this inspection report should be sent to the home seller to review with his or her attorney and real estate agent. The buyer working with his own real estate attorney and agent can petition for certain repairs to be made. Many sellers will make such repairs to ensure the purchase goes through, or they will accept a lower purchase price to compensate for the needed repairs, which the buyer will then make. Buyers might want to hire a good real estate attorney to write clauses into the contract to protect their inter-

ests. This allows the buyer to forfeit the sale and walk away from the contract should an issue arise. The rules often change when buying a home that is a short sale or in foreclosure. A home that is in distress is typically in this situation because the current owners cannot afford to pay their mortgage, and thusly, are not able to afford repairs. According to Think Glink, a money-management Web site, buyers may try to negotiate repairs with the seller, but they shouldn’t assume that sellers (or lenders in the event of a bank-owned home) are responsible for the repairs. Generally speaking, most short sales and foreclosures are sold “as is” and may even specify that repairs and requirements for the certificate of occupancy are the buyer’s responsibility. A buyer also can ask to have the home price reduced to cover the repairs. But foreclosures are often already deeply discounted. Buyers should know that, for a home that is not in foreclosure, there are some repairs

Mortgage corner

that should ultimately be the responsibility of the seller. If these repairs are not made, a buyer should think strongly about walking away from the deal, according to Why6Percent.com, a real estate marketing site. SUCH REPAIRS INCLUDE:

• lender-required repairs that could impact home safety • leaky pipes • water penetration issues, including a bad roof • unsafe decking or handrails • wet basements or crawl spaces • insecure foundations or obvious structural damage • poorly functioning sewer lines or septic system It is always adviseable for buyers to speak with a reliable real estate attorney and a trusted real estate agent to guide them through the process of buying a home. These people can help buyers navigate the important decisions that can affect the home they’ll be living in for the next several years. ❑
