Music to their ears Elk Run residents create handbell ensemble BY DEB HURLEY BROBST DBROBST@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM
The bells of Elk Run Assisted Living are ringing. Several residents have created an ensemble to learn the art of handbell playing. Practicing for only three weeks, the group performed its first mini-concert last week, playing “Happy Birthday” during lunch to celebrate residents with March birthdays. The group is looking for a song to learn to welcome new residents to the facility, and it hopes to have a lengthier concert soon. Activities Director Sarah Bogdan is the handbell ensemble director, pointing to the bell that needs to be played. She found a set of simple bells for interested residents to try, noting that ringing bells was a good activity for older adults, especially while residents have not had many visitors during the pandemic. She explained that although the ensemble members admit they’re not good singers, they have musical backgrounds, so ringing the bells came naturally. In addition to being fun and musical, bell ringing helps with hand-eye coordination and memory, so the activity is a win-win for the residents. Bettie Lynn Walden jumped at

Yellow House remains closed permanently SRC moving to more in-home care BY DEB HURLEY BROBST DBROBST@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM
The Seniors’ Resource Center site in Evergreen, which closed last spring at the start of the pandemic, will remain closed permanently, so the organization can focus on providing in-home care for senior citizens in the foothills. SRC President Chris Lynn said while he knew people would be upset that the Yellow House on Highway 73 is closing and the building sold, the SRC wasn’t leaving Evergreen and Conifer high and dry. “We are providing care for people in their homes,” he said. “We are not leaving the community. We just will not be in that space.” SRC also is closing its Englewood location. The organization hopes to hire seven additional care providers to assist in the types of services SRC has been offering, especially during the pandemic, including in-home care and meal delivery. The move to close the Yellow House, which has operated since 1986, comes after the SRC downsized the staff and consolidated programs there and at its four other facilities in 2019. SRC centralized its services, laying off directors and assistant directors at all of its locations. In addition, employees in other positions who left weren’t replaced. Then in 2020, SRC ended its trans-

portation programs, outsourcing them to Via Mobility Services, which is starting services in Evergreen next week. Linn said the Yellow House building is old and expensive to maintain. Saving money on the building upkeep will help the SRC provide more services to seniors, especially since there’s a greater need for in-home care. In addition, he said the number of people attending the day programs at
the Yellow House had been dwindling before the pandemic, and officials anticipated it would be a while before seniors would venture to group programs again. He didn’t rule out the SRC renting space in the foothills to provide senior day programs at a later date. He said the change in seniors’ demand for services has forced the SRC to change its model for providing services, noting that seniors need a lot
more attention in their homes. Keeping a building like the Yellow House, which is expensive to operate, open no longer made sense. “I have to be a good steward of our funds, and hanging onto (that) property … is not a good use of our money,” he said. “The reality is SRC is a business. We are a nonprofit and a business, and we must remain good stewards of our funds.”

There’s snow place like the mountains for springlike fun Springtime snow brings out the creativity and fun in humans and animals alike, and the Canyon Courier received so many photos after the 3-foot snow earlier this month that we couldn’t pass up getting them in print. Evergreen and Conifer have received a total of 5 feet of snow since March 1 — a hefty amount for the area. That equated to about 3.75 inches of water, which will help with the area’s drought conditions. For those who geek out on these things, the 30-year average for March water is 2.28 inches. Better yet, the snowpack is now more than 100% of average, further helping curb the drought and fildfire conditions. But for now, the snow is a fun way to get outside — creating beautiful scenery, and giving residents and their canine friends a chance to play.

School fourth graders are going to be well versed in gardening. The students won an indoor tower garden from Juice Plus through an essay contest, and they planted seeds in trays last week, planning to transplant the seedlings into the 5-foot-tall structure. The result: fresh vegetables and herbs that the classes can use, and students hope to donate extras to a local food bank. Fourth grader Lucia Templeton said starter seed cubes would help the seeds to grow, while Tessa Templeton estimated it would take three weeks before the tower garden would be teeming with greenery. They planted seeds for lettuce, basil, parsley and other greens. Students wrote essays about the plant cycle — from seed to harvest — for the contest, and fourth grader Sydney Shaver’s essay won. Sydney explained that her essay included details about the chronology of the plant cycle and how bees were important.
Teacher Linda Benton said all of the students were winners because students will get an up-close-andpersonal look at growing plants since the tower garden is situated in the hallway outside the fourthgrade classrooms. It’s a great way for them to watch the plant cycle from beginning to end, she said. While the tower structure is currently white, it will soon be lush with green plants. The indoor garden will provide vegetables all year compared with the beds in the community garden in front of the school that are currently fallow. Fourth grader Adam Zoldowski said students hope they can grow other vegetables in addition to leafy greens and herbs, and students agreed it was important to help others by supplying them with fresh vegetables. “(The vegetables) will be very good for them,” Sydney said. “They will be really good because they’re fresh.”

Lake trail construction plans move forward EPRD board mulls temporary fix for washout before major work starts BY DEB HURLEY BROBST DBROBST@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM
Plans to rebuild the north section of the Evergreen Lake trail are moving forward, with construction expected to start in November and be completed in summer 2022. In the meantime, the Evergreen Park & Recreation District and the Evergreen Metropolitan District will look for ways to repair two areas of the trail that have failed thanks to the three feet of snow Evergreen received a few weeks ago. However, trail repairs will need to be torn out once construction of the new two-tiered trail system commences, so both entities are looking for safe yet economical solutions. EMD is involved because a water main runs under the trail. EPRD board members agreed at the March 23 meeting that the trail was important especially in the summer when tourists walk along it and into downtown Evergreen, supporting local merchants and restaurants. They hope they can afford to make the repairs before summer. Chris Vogelsang with OV Consulting, the project engineer, said the timeline to complete the plans, get approvals from the City of Denver, which owns the Evergreen Lake property, and CDOT, and put the project out for bid could not be compressed. Vogelsang said the project would be put out for bid in July or early August to construct a 10-foot-wide concrete trail along Evergreen Parkway and a trail along the lakeshore with a soft surface. The rec district will fund the project with $3.76 million in grants it has received primarily from the Denver Regional Council of Governments and Colorado the Beautiful. A point of concern for the board is how long traffic will be diverted because of the construction. Vogelsang said traffic will be diverted four months if only one lane on Evergreen Parkway is blocked off, so northbound traffic would move through downtown Evergreen to Meadow Drive while southbound traffic would travel on Evergreen Parkway. If the entire road is blocked off, necessitating all traffic moving on Meadow Drive and through downtown Evergreen, the work could be done in three months and save about $100,000, he said. In response to questions, Vogelsang said once the new trail was built, it would not be plagued with washouts like the current trail, which has been closed on and off for several years.

VOICES OUR VIEW
Superintendent selection process not so super When Idaho Springs was choosing a new chief of police weeks ago, the city held a virtual community forum so residents could get to know the three finalists being considered for the position. Just last week, Commerce City held something similar for the three finalists for the city manager position. When Jefferson County Public Schools Superintendent Jason Glass was applying to become a commissioner of education for the Kentucky Department of Education last year, his name was made public by the state along with two other finalist candidates for that position. Glass was eventually named as the top choice and accepted the position. All three hiring processes comply with what is considered best practices for open government, giving the public a chance to see what the alternatives were in the hiring of an executive to a public organization. In fact, under the Colorado Open Records Act, all finalists for a highranking or CEO-type position, such as superintendent, must be named publicly at least 14 days before an actual job offer is made, giving the public time to weigh in on the
choices. CORA defines “finalist” as “a member of the final group of applicants or candidates.” However, the state’s second largest school district has repeatedly — for at least the last three times now — skirted this rule, by naming only a single “finalist.” This is precisely what the district did on March 25 in naming Glass’ replacement, Tracy Dorland. Much as this editorial board said after Glass was hired, this new superintendent seems well qualified and could easily have been the superior choice out of the four, dare we say, finalists that the Jeffco Public Schools Board of Education interviewed earlier in the week. Not to disparage Dorland, but the method the school board used in choosing her has perpetuating a practice that does not serve the ideals of transparent governance. We, the parents, teachers and taxpayers of Jefferson County will likely never know who the board passed over in this choice. We have no way of judging the wisdom of our five elected officials in this decision. The argument against revealing more than one finalist for an execu-
tive chief position, one explicitly voiced by the search firm hired by Jeffco Public Schools — Hazard, Young, Attea & Associates — was that the mere possibility of being revealed as a position-seeker could dissuade top candidates from applying. In response, we would point out that the possibility of being named a finalist didn’t dissuade Jeffco’s last choice for superintendent. Also, we happen to think being as transparent as possible, even when it may be inconvenient, is an excellent quality to want in a public schools administrator. This is a recurring problem across the state. Both Adams 12 Five-Star and Denver Public Schools, districts Dorland worked with previously, named only one finalist the last time they selected a superintendent. In 2019, the Boulder Daily Camera sued CU Boulder after the board of regents pulled the same stunt in the selection of a new university president, naming just one finalist and refusing to release the names of other applicants that were interviewed for the job. A district court judge sided with the paper, writing
in the decision “Under the plain and ordinary meaning of the statutes, there were more than one finalist for the 2019 CU president position.” The case was appealed up to the Colorado Court of Appeals earlier this year. Appellate Judge Michael Berger called the interpretation of CORA used by CU and Jeffco Public Schools regarding the hiring of chief executives as “seriously flawed,” in his opinion. He added that the district court ruling that more than one finalist should be named under CORA would clearly “better advance the sunshine and open government principles that underlie those statutes.” However, in a 2-1 decision the appellate court concluded that it should be left to legislators, not the courts, to clarify the language of CORA to better align with its intent. The appellate court overturning the CU decision had unfortunate timing for Jeffco. How much more transparent might Dorland’s hiring have been had that ruling still stood. Of course, a little more dedication to the ideal of transparency on the part of the Jeffco school board could have done that, too.
Tragedy will again lead to focus on gun laws The tragic loss of 10 lives in Boulder last week has had and will have many impacts on all of us. One of them will be to ensure that gun control will now become a huge and controversial issue for the rest of this year’s session of the Colorado General Assembly. It’s not as if gun issues were not already on the table. Several Republican-sponsored bills had been introduced to remove restrictions that are currently in place. None of them has any chance of success in the Democratic-controlled legislature. Two gun-control bills sponsored by Democrats are in the process and had been subject to long and emotional debates. One requires safe storage of guns. Supporters argue that safe storage will protect people from gun accidents in their
homes and make it more difficult for criminals to steal guns. Opponents argue that requirements to lock guns away make their owners defenseless if their homes are invaded or makes people who keep guns out of their storage containers into crimi-
nals. The other requires people whose guns are lost or stolen to report it to law enforcement. Proponents believe reporting requirements will make it less likely those weapons will be used in crimes, while oppo-

nents say the bill would make people who are victims of crimes criminals themselves if they don’t report the theft. While those two bills have been controversial, in the scheme of things, they are relatively minor proposals. We are now likely to see proposals to prohibit ownership or use of assault weapons, remove the state’s preemption on local gun control laws and establish a waiting period between when people purchase guns and obtain them. Any of these proposals will be legislative holy wars that would bring the legislature’s work to a snail’s pace and could make it difficult for the legislature to work on anything else. We’re also assured to see a renewed conversation about mental health in general and what
limitations on gun ownership are appropriate for people suffering with mental-health problems. Every time there is a mass shooting, discussions about what we should do are reenergized. We’ve had more than our share of these events in Colorado. After Columbine, Colorado voters passed universal background checks. Gun-control bills that passed in 2013 led to two Democratic senators being recalled and Republicans taking control of the State Senate after the 2014 elections. After what happened in Boulder last week, it will be interesting to see if either the legislature or voters make other significant changes to gun laws in our state.

Time to start thinking about running for political office Editor’s Note: This is part one of a two-part column on how and why to run for local office. If you read a lot of media in this state, the overwhelming theme about the Colorado Republican Party is that it is either dead or on life support. That is because of a long series of disappointing electoral losses. While it is true there have been losses, I have been given the advice more than a few times that the best time to start a business is during a recession. Applying this to the political world, the best time to run for office as a Republican is when your party is on the ropes. Jefferson County will choose seven elected officials in the November 2022 election. They are assessor, clerk & recorder, commissioner in District 3, coroner, sheriff, surveyor and treasurer. The redistricting commission selected through Amendments Y and Z will always be redrawing the boundaries for districts in both houses of the legislature and congressional districts. Colorado will be getting an

the chance to play in the ensemble, which doesn’t have a name yet. Walden also plays piano, and she thought ringing bells would be fun. “I love music,” she said. “It’s so much a part of me.” She hopes the ensemble will get so good that it can get real brass bells, and she’s looking forward to learning Christmas music. Like Walden, Sylvia Sholes has
additional seat in the U.S. House of Representatives due to our population growth. The work of the redistricting commission will be complete this fall, and the boundaries of JOE those districts will become pubWEBB lic knowledge. COLUMNIST Until then, any such conversation about them will be speculative. What I wish to do both this month and next month is describe the process of candidacy from the seed of an idea to successful election. I am doing this because I like the idea of walk-ons to a team actually winning a starting position. If you are an ordinary citizen, with a little luck, but mostly hard work and determination, you too can win political office and serve our county and state with the aim of making it a better place to live.

a musical background, and Steve Kurland really enjoys classic rock music, especially The Doors. Chuck Wickland was listening to a practice session one day, and he was roped into joining the group, while Ferne Firth said she has known professional bell ringers, so it seemed natural to try her hand at it. George Faust is also a loyal member. Bogdan said the beginner’s set of handbells was a perfect way to gauge residents’ interest in the activity, and from the looks of it, bell ringing has been a hit. “It’s bringing a lot of joy,” Bogdan said. “This works well for us.”
term “establishment” is unnecessarily thrown around to suggest that the political process on the Republican side is filled with people who will thwart you at every turn if you have political ambitions. That isn’t the case. The much vaunted “establishment” is just a name tossed about to label others with whom the name caller disagrees. You would think as a former party chair that I am “establishment,” but I assure you I am not. Finally, if you have ambitions of running for office, the time to at least think about it is now. If you wish to think about running, two questions need to be asked. What am I qualified to do and what do I wish to accomplish in office? I myself have never worked in law enforcement or surveying, therefore I would be unqualified to run for the position of sheriff or surveyor. If you wish to make a statement about the national debt, a run for Congress or U.S. senator would be a more appropriate office to seek rather than a county office.
Figure out where you would best serve and then begin the process of exploring a candidacy. In the beginning, before you decide to run, you ought to survey the field and figure out what will happen. Who else may be contemplating a run for the office you seek? Does the office you seek have an incumbent? What could be a good campaign strategy? These are questions you should ask either the Jeffco GOP chair or the Jeffco Democratic chair. Introducing yourself to the local party chair is a good starting point for information. You should also ask yourself a question: What is the worst thing that anyone can say about you? Negative campaigning is a reality. You ought to have a hard look at what could be placed about you in the media. Next month, I will speak about fundraising, and what should be done to succeed in both the primary and general election. Joe Webb is the former chairman of the Jeffco Republican Party.

Weathering the COVID, snow storms Lobos volleyball finding a way BY DEB HURLEY BROBST DBROBST@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM
It’s been 16 months since the Conifer volleyball team played a match against another school. It’s been an on-again-off-again season as CHSSA decided how to conduct sports in the middle of a pandemic. And it’s been difficult when two of the team’s four matches so far this season already have been canceled due to quarantines, while practices were scrapped because of snow days. Yet, through it all, the Lobos have persevered, winning their only two matches against rival Evergreen and Alameda. In some respects, the pandemic may have been a blessing in disguise. “These girls are so awesome,” said Conifer head coach Laurie Eddy. “They are excited to be there. The girls are so happy (and) under my mask, I am smiling the whole time.” Players agree they’re happy just to be playing, and winning has

LAKEWOOD — It was one final time to play basketball with your friends and even some old foes on the hardwood March 25 night at the Gold Crown Fieldhouse. Conifer senior Isabella Namaksy played for the Blue squad, which lost to the White team 70-58. It wasn’t an easy victory for the White squad that had a solid height advantage on the Blue squad. The White led 28-13 early in the second quarter, but the Blue team coached by Arvada West’s girls basketball coach Brady Meeks chipped away at the lead to keep within striking distance. “The White team was good. They definitely had the height,” Arvada West senior Alexis Folks said. “I think we did a good job battling with them.” Folks led the Blue squad with 12 points, all 3-pointers. She was the only player in double-digits for the Blue team, but the squad had 10 different players score as they tried to rally from the double-digit first-half deficit. The White team buckled down defensively in the final minutes, holding the Blue scoreless for the final two minutes after the White’s lead was trimmed to 63-58 with 2 minutes to play. The annual senior basketball

been icing on the cake. “Everyone has had a great attitude, even with COVID,” said senior setter Elena Eddy. “It’s the dynamic of the team. They want to be there, work together and are willing to put up with anything for our season.” Junior Marina Cadilli, the libero, said all things considered, things are going well in this unconventional season. “We’re having a lot of fun on and off the court together,” she said of her teammates. “This year has made the team that much more of a family.” Middle hitter Faith Hemerley, a senior, said the team has gelled, and players have made individual sacrifices to make everyone on the team better. “We’re playing as one, not for ourselves,” she said. And beating Evergreen in the first match of the season 25-23, 1825, 25-20, 16-25, 15-11 just solidified the Lobos’ drive to succeed this season. “Beating our rivals was an unreal feeling,” Elena Eddy said.

“It changed our mindset to say we could really do well.” For some players, spring has meant volleyball all the time since in a traditional year, the high school volleyball season is in the fall with club volleyball in the spring. This year, both seasons are running simultaneously. The high school season has been squeezed into five weeks, with snowstorms and COVID-19 quarantining changing the practice and match schedule almost daily. Two matches last week were canceled, and no matches are scheduled this week because of spring break. The spring season finishes at the end of April and volleyball camps start in May, so it’s going to be nonstop volleyball until the normal schedule starts in the fall. Coach Eddy said this season is the perfect storm for the Lobos. “We have such a good team and a very young team,” she said. “We have the right players with the right amount of experience, so they’re great leaders. The court culture is so amazing.” Players have endured a lot to make this spring season happen. “They take whatever they get,” Coach Eddy said. “They work their butts off and make the team better.”

Dunks, 3-pointers reign in Jeffco HS Senior Basketball Game BY DENNIS PLEUSS JEFFCO PUBLIC SCHOOLS
LAKEWOOD — Valor Christian senior Amondo Miller’s final dunk finished off a fun night March 25 at the Gold Crown Fieldhouse. The Blue squad took a 130-124 victory in the boys’ Jeffco High School Senior Basketball Game. The annual game featuring the top seniors in the Class 5A and 4A Jeffco Leagues didn’t take place last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Evergreen players Jackson Mott, Griffin Lauritano and Jared Stiller, along with Conifer’s Alex Ainsworth played for the White team, and Evergreen head coach Jeff Dolan coached the White team. While dunks and optional defense were in full force, the 3-point shooting was particularly sharp by the co-MVPs. Columbine senior Garrett Rogers and Wheat Ridge senior Westin Miller poured in seven 3-pointers each to lead both of their teams in scoring. The Blue squad actually trailed 97-91 heading into the final 10-minute quarter. However, the Blue team scored 39 points in the final quarter to win. Green Mountain senior Austin Peterson got hot from 3-point range, hitting a trio from long range in the final quarter. Valor’s Miller and AJ Kula combined for 14 points in the final quarter, and Rogers canned a pair

of 3-pointers for good measure to pull out the come-from-behind victory.
“It was just really fun playing with all the guys. You play them during league, and you know them
because of club,” Rogers said. “It is always a great time getting out there and playing together.” Wheat Ridge’s Miller started the game off with a 3-pointer in the opening seconds. The Farmer has been getting ready for the upcoming high school baseball season, but getting one last chance on the hardwood with fellow Wheat Ridge teammate Dominic Cross was special. “It was awesome. I got to play one more basketball game,” said Miller, who has signed to play baseball next school year at Regis University. “I’ve been practicing baseball, so it was nice to get back out on the court. Most of us are competitors, but when it comes to this, they are your teammates now.” There were more than 40 3-pointers made in the game. Almost every time down the court it was either a bomb from long range or a driving dunk. Lauritano and Stiller were all in double digits. It marked the end of the prep basketball season in Jeffco that had its challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic. “It shows how much we have progressed through this tough time,” Rogers said of having the game return to close out the basketball season.

EMD updating water plan before giving the go-ahead for El Rancho development Water district approval is one step in the process to move the proposal forward BY DEB HURLEY BROBST DBROBST@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM
The Evergreen Metropolitan District is continuing to update its water master plan to determine whether it can provide water to a proposed development in El Rancho. The EMD board met March 24 to discuss the proposal to put a hotel, retail and restaurants on the RTD Park-n-Ride, Foothills Fire, Alpine Rescue and former Observatory Café properties. The water master plan will help EMD decide whether it can provide water for the development without impacting nearby water users, according to EMD General Manager Dave Lighthart. The development proposal, which

includes rezoning part of the property from agricultural to commercial, must be approved by the Jeffco commissioners. The county asks for other government agencies to weigh in on whether a proposed develop-
ment is feasible. If the water master plan determines that improvements are needed to the water system to accommodate the development, the developer can decide whether it wants to help pay for the improvements, Lighthart said. The EMD board has imposed a moratorium on new water taps in the El Rancho area until it updates the plan, which should take about six months. Foothills Fire Chief Alan Anderson said he was excited about the proposed development because the developers — a group of Evergreen residents led by Jack Buchanan with Northstar Ventures — are willing to build Foothills a new fire station on the west end of the property. “I need to rebuild the station in the next few years, which would be a great burden on our taxpayers,” Anderson said. “(Having Northstar build a new station) would save our taxpayers up to a million dollars. Another reason why we support this development is because it would add
a significant commercial tax base to our (fire) district. (The property taxes paid to the fire district) would allow for better fire service in our community.” Northstar has had its pre-application meeting with Jeffco Planning & Zoning to show conceptual plans, and the planner assigned to the case has said the proposed development was complicated because so many entities are involved. Northstar also is talking with the Alpine Rescue Team about relocating its building, with RTD about putting a Park-n-Ride within the development and with CDOT about reconfiguring Rainbow Hill Road, so it intersects with Highway 40 closer to the entrance to El Rancho Brewery. Buchanan hopes to have the necessary documents to Jeffco soon, so a community meeting can be scheduled. The community meeting is the next step toward requesting a rezoning from the Jeffco Planning Commission and commissioners.
Sheriff’s calls Trouble in the off-ing CONIFER — Inclined to believe his tenant was dealing drugs out of his rental unit, the property owner evicted the suspected scoundrel and set about tidying the residence for the next renter. Thing is, when he showed up bright and early with a tool kit in one hand and a mop bucket in the other, he discovered that the house had no power or water pressure. After quick calls to the utilities confirmed that he was still a customer in good standing, he checked the breaker box to find the main power switch thrown and then checked the well to find the heavy concrete lid askew. His next call was to JCSO, telling deputies he feared that the unsavory ex-tenant may have booby trapped the bungalow. Not sharing the landlord’s concern, officers threw the power switch back on, instantly restoring light and water. Not convinced that all was well, the landlord wondered aloud whether the well cover had been displaced by no-good associates of the previous occupant in search of concealed contraband. Not finding any good reason to entertain that
hypothesis, officers called the case suspicious and ordered an extra patrol of the premises. After the party’s over CONIFER – In the wee hours of March 5, the homeowner dialed 911 to report a burglary in progress. According to his anxious account, the home invader was drunk, violent and in the company of a drunk, violent woman. Responding deputies arrived to find the trespassing twosome in the caller’s kitchen, intently arguing with each other and stuffing various items into a black duffel bag while the complainant cooled his heels in the next room. In fact, officers quickly discovered, the various items belonged to the well-oiled couple. And rather than breaking into the home, they had entered several hours earlier at the complainant’s invitation. And if they were drunk, it was only because their host had been plying them with highballs all night. And when the alcohol-fueled fest had started to spin out of hand, the homeowner had abruptly demanded that they leave, and deputies

Don’t look now EVERGREEN – When the alert citizen observed a man with binoculars peering through a fence toward his property on the morning of Feb. 28, he dispatched his dog to chase the spying stranger away and called 911. The fellow was “acting shady” he told the dispatcher and likely a “peeping Tom.” Armed with a license plate number, deputies pulled Tom to the curb a short distance away and asked him to explain his surveillance of strangers. No peeper, Tom insisted, he was trying to “catch my wife cheating on me” so “I can be done with her.” It was a good excuse, if true, but not enough to satisfy the complainant, who demanded that charges be filed. Officers cited Tom for third-degree trespassing, tried to impress upon him the “seriousness of the situ-

ation” and advised him exactly where “such behavior could lead.” Moving violation EVERGREEN – It was a headscratcher, all right. Returning home the previous evening, she told deputies, she’d parked her car at the top of the driveway. Leaving for work in the morning, she’d found it parked at the bottom of the driveway. At a loss to explain the mysterious movement, she could only assume that somebody broke into the vehicle, hotwired the starter, drove it exactly 50 feet, and then locked it securely before slinking away into the night. As her wandering wheels had been pelted with “eggs and tomatoes” in the past, she believed it possible that the recent relocation was a particularly perplexing prank. She was even more baffled when deputies detected no signs of forced entry into the vehicle nor any evidence of unauthorized ignition. Unable to verify that a crime had occurred, officers advised her to call again should the car undertake any more mystifying migrations.

School district rolls out 2021 remote learning plan Officials guarantee remote, in-person education will be equitable BY BOB WOOLEY BWOOLEY@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM
Students enrolling in Jeffco Public Schools’ remote learning program for the 2021-22 school year can expect an equitable learning experience on par with in-person school, district officials told parents at a Facebook live event on March 18. The program will have a strong focus on synchronous learning and allowing students to be part of their home school with the ability to attend events, participate in athletics and extra-curricular activities such as performing in school plays. In addition, seniors will receive their diplomas from and graduate with their current home high school. All students will have the option to return to their school in the 2022-23 school year without reapplying to attend that school. Jeffco Schools’ Interim Superintendent Kristopher Schuh said the district expected strong participation in next year’s remote offering, noting roughly 20% of the district’s 80,000 students chose the remotelearning option this year. According to Interim Deputy Superintendent Marcia Anker, the district conducted a survey in February to gauge interest in a remote
program. She said the overall response rate was about 33%, and out of those, more than 1,300 families said they would be interested in a remote option next year, affirming the district’s decision to move forward with the remote option. COVID-19 is still playing a role in choosing the learning environment some families are comfortable with, while others simply think remote works better for their child, Anker said. Community Superintendent Matthew Walsh is heading up the program. No stranger to non-traditional learning approaches, Walsh has overseen the district’s option, alternative and dual-enrollment schools for the past eight years. He’s also been an important cog in the remote machine for this school year. “I worked closely with high school principals on the overall restart program and delivering the in-person and remote options in our high schools,” he said. “Since then, I’ve been working closely with Jeffco Virtual Academy, better understanding what they offer to our students.” Walsh said he was approached and had a great interest in being the lead on the new program, not just for the year ahead and dealing with the pandemic, but also for future opportunities remote learning pairs with in education. He said the main difference between next year’s remote program and the current virtual academy program is the new program will be primarily synchronous.

“Students will have the opportunity to have face-to-face conversations in instruction with their teachers on a daily basis,” he said. “Families are excited about it because it provides structure and organization for students.” Schuh reiterated the district’s commitment to creating a remote program that equals in-person learning in every way. He said the goal is to provide a consistent, equitable, high-quality, comprehensive experience for all students across all schools including options and charters. Part of reaching that goal will hinge on the district’s ability to keep remote learners engaged and connected to their home school. Anker said the expectation is that the school will reach out to remote learners on a regular basis — at least weekly in a variety of ways. Although many teachers are currently teaching in-person and remote students at the same time, Walsh said that won’t be the case next year. The district will hire teachers solely to teach remote students to ensure an equitable experience. Families who are or may be interested in the new program can already see class offerings on the district’s Remote Learning website. Walsh said the district will offer Advanced Placement classes, honors and a wide range of unique electives. He thinks families will be pleasantly surprised when they see the comprehensive and competitive
course list. How can you enroll your child? Mackenzie Nickum, Jeffco’s director of enrollment services, said through December and January, the district asked families to go online and choose their school at Enroll Jeffco. The site is considered the best way for families to choose their learning environment (remote or in-person) as well. To begin, log-in to Enroll Jeffco with a Jeffco Connect username and password. Once inside, click “Let’s get started” and follow the prompts. On the second page there will be a question asking which learning environment you want to pursue. Users will have the options of “remote,” “in-person” or “not sure.” Each school has a remote version. For example, there’s a Wilmot Elementary and a remote Wilmot Elementary option. Apply to the schools you’re interested in, click next and submit. Keep in mind that you’re guaranteed a spot at the school you’re currently enrolled in. There’s no lottery system for remote school — applications are processed as they’re submitted. The district is taking anyone who wants to enroll in remote learning until April 7. After that, district officials will start looking at capacity, and there may be a waitlist depending on available space for either remote or in-person, so if a family wants to switch after that point, it will depend on availability of spots.

Save wildlife with integrated pest management Removing guests who eat all the food, make big messes and destroy things might prove to be a challenge. One way to definitely solve the problem is to quit feeding them, push them firmly out the door and lock it securely. When the usurpers realize there is no longer food or shelter available, they will cast about for a more hospitable home to invade. While rodents and in-laws should never be confused with each other, using tactics that recognize the reason for trespassers in the first place can be a successful starting point for their removal. Integrated Pest Management is a thoughtful and challenging approach to controlling pests in and around the home. By considering the bigger picture and investing time in a safer, more humane management approach, residents can stop automatically reaching for poison and start thinking a little deeper about holistically approaching pest management. Henry Ford said: “Thinking is the hardest work there is, which is

probably the reason why so few engage in it.” The best reason to use an IPM approach is avoiding non-target poisoning. Along with predators, pets and children are often victims CHRISTY of rodenticide GREENE poisoning (ColoCOLUMNIST rado State University’s Extension program considers children a non-target animal). Through the lens of prevention and eviction, IPM asks questions like why and how rodents enter homes. By removing conditions that attract pests, such as food, water and shelter, prevention is the first and best way to keep rodents out of the home. Food: Mice need only one-tenth of an ounce of food each day. Be sure the kitchen area is kept clean. Food should be placed in chew-proof containers or placed out of reach.
Home Access: The strong scent of mint can be repelling to mice. Soak cotton balls in the oil and leave in locations which could be an entry point. Block all potential access holes, such as air vents, with wire wool or a strong sealant. Live capture and release: Catching animals and releasing them away from the home should only be a last resort if you have not been able to prevent their arrival into the home. Is IPM worth the time and effort? Yes, and this is why: Rodenticides are lethal: A National Park Service study near Santa Monica, California, found that 92% of bobcats, 83% of coyotes and 94% of mountain lions had been exposed to anticoagulant poisons. Rodenticides were the second highest cause of death for mountain lions behind vehicle strikes. Rodenticides cause suffering: Legally applied rodenticides attack functions of the body such as damage to organs and neurological disorders. All poisons cause considerable suffering before death.
Some anticoagulants require only a single feeding to be lethal. Since the fatality may be delayed for several days, the victim may ingest more poison and the carcass may hold multiple lethal doses. Nontarget species eating a mouse laden with a heavy load of rodenticide can suffer many illnesses and death. To protect children, pets, and other predators, give Integrated Pest Management a try. Patience and problem solving are required, but families, the environment, pets, and wildlife are the beneficiaries of outthinking the unwanted guests who want to come over for a visit-and stay.
