Incumbents retain council seats Castle Rock to swear in two new faces, two familiar ones April 15 By Ryan Boldrey

rboldrey@coloradocommunitymedia.com Both incumbents handily retained their seats in the April 1 Castle Rock Town Council election, which also brought two newcomers to the board. Incumbents Jennifer Green and Renee Valentine kept their seats in District 3 and

5, respectively, while Brett J. Ford beat out Max Brooks to replace term-limited Joe Procopio in District 7, and George Teal emerged from a field of four in District 6 to take over for Clark Hammelman, who resigned from his seat earlier this Ford year. Valentine, Green and Ford will serve four-year terms, expiring in April 2018. Teal will serve a partial, two-year term, expiring in April 2016. All four will be sworn in at the April 15 council meeting, when both a mayor and mayor pro tem will be

appointed by the council to serve in those capacities for the next two years. Paul Donahue, who remains on council, has served as mayor since 2011. In total, 4,605 people voted in the four

districts, representing a voter turnout of about 25 percent, according to a news release from the town. Green amassed 57.7 percent of the vote in District 3, defeating three opponents, the closest of whom, Jennifer Bennett, checked in with 22.2 percent. Green said she was “pleased to see so many voters who found the issues (she) found important, liberty and freedom, as something they wanted to continue.” “When I was campaigning, numerous residents explained to me that they wanted government to mind their own business Council continues on Page 33

North Meadows Extension moving along Town’s largest road project to date on target, under budget By Ryan Boldrey

rboldrey@coloradocommunitymedia.com The first phase of four on Castle Rock’s largest transportation project in town history is nearing completion, and town officials anticipate being under budget on construction costs and on target to wrap up on schedule. The North Meadows Extension, which broke ground near Castle View High School in October, once complete, will provide north and southbound interchange access to U.S. 85 and I-25, giving residents of the Meadows a second northern access point to I-25 and alleviating traffic on Meadows Parkway. The extension includes the construction of the two interchanges, one of which will be built over U.S. 85 at Castlegate Drive — as well as two bridges, one over Plum

Creek and Union Pacific Railroad, and the other, which is almost complete, over the Burlington Northern/Santa Fe railroad tracks that run behind Castle View. “Our overall goal is to open the full project to use as close to the end of 2015 as we can,” said project manager Dan Sailer, assistant director of public works for the town. “We are making every effort we can to hit that target.” Sailer said that in addition to the construction, the town still needs to clear a couple hurdles, including the acquisition of a few parcels of private land east of U.S. 85 and west of I-25. Once they have those land acquisitions finalized, the town also needs to enter into some intergovernmental agreements with the Colorado Department of Transportation related to the maintenance of the new interchanges. Everything west of the pacific railroad is cleared for construction, and underway, Sailer said. The project, with a budget of $67.85

million, is being paid for by $22.7 million in bond money voted for in 2005, along with an additional $29.2 million from the Town of Castle Rock, $853,000 from Castle Rock Development Co. (the developer of The Meadows), $10.5 million from Douglas County and $4.6 million from C-DOT. To date, Sailer said, the town is close to $3 million under its approved construction budget, with three phases left to go. The road, once complete, is expected to stretch nearly two miles, one lane in each direction, with turn lanes added near the I-25 access points. Once east of U.S. 85, the road will run south of Castle Pines Village, north of the Outlets at Castle Rock and just to the east of the Pines Apartment Complex off U.S. 85. For more information on the project, visit www.crgov.com/nme. The general contractor for the project is Wisconsinbased firm Edward Kraemer and Sons. The firm has a regional office in Castle Rock and is also currently involved in the I-70 twin tunnel project.

Oil and gas health impact study clears panel

Bill and bill’s price tag expand during committee talks By Vic Vela

vvela@coloradocommunitymedia.com The potential health impacts of oil and gas operations among Front Range residents will be studied, under a bill that is making its way through the Legislature. But increased costs to the legislation that were added during a recent House committee hearing left the bill sponsor worried that the effort might not get funded. House Bill 1297 would require the state to study the impacts that oil and gas operations may have on a person’s health and quality of life. The three-year study would focus on residents living in Adams, Arapahoe, Boulder, Broomfield, Larimer and Weld Counties. Those counties include cities that have placed limits on fracking — the mixing of water, sand and chemicals that are blasted deep into the surface to crack porous rock to free up blocked oil and gas. So far, five Colorado cities and more than 100 municipalities across the nation have either placed bans or other limits on the practice. The bill would require the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment to review scientific literature regarding the

health impacts of oil and gas opjobs, as is our energy jobs and educaerations, and would then conduct a tion,” she said. “And fear is driving health survey of randomly selected communities to enact bans and Front Range residents. moratoriums and fear should not If the findings be the motivation in this case.” warrant further reThe committee’s vote to move search, a secondforward with tiered part of the the study fell study would kick on party lines. in, which could Rep.

good understanding of how to address this approach,” Swalm said. “The elected officials out there worked hard to come to that.” Rep. Frank McNulty, R-Highlands Ranch, said he didn’t want to see a state-sponsored study that he thinks would slant toward the viewpoint of fracking opponents. McNulty said that the oil and gas industry is already being watched in a way that protects the public. “A well-regulated industry does not pose public health threats to our citizens,” he said. The bill passed the committee, but came out of it more expensive than when it arrived. The original bill would have focused only on the oil and gas-related health impacts to those who live in the counties of Adams, Boulder, Larimer and Weld. However, against Ginal’s wishes, the committee amended the study to include Arapahoe County and the City and County of Broomfield. That expects to add an additional $200,000 to the legislation, bringing the bill’s cost to about $700,000. Rep. Sue Schafer, D-Wheat Ridge said she was concerned that the added cost could be “a game changer” when it goes before the House Appropriations Committee for funding consideration. “I am supporting the bill, but I am concerned about adding the extra cost,” Schafer said. “My county and other counties care very much about this issue, but let’s start with a small, controlled study and, in a future year, we can expand on it.”

State firefighting fleet cleared for takeoff Plan would set aside $21 million to purchase or contract planes, helicopters By Vic Vela

vvela@coloradocommunitymedia.com One way or another, the state will soon free up money to get an unfunded aerial firefighting fleet off the ground. The governor’s office and legislative leaders are on board with a spending plan that would set aside $21 million to purchase or contract planes and helicopters that are equipped to fight fires. The money was approved through an amendment to the annual state budget that was debated in the Senate on April 3. Gov. John Hickenlooper’s office and lawmakers will have to get creative to find where in the budget the fleet funding will be secured. But all sides agree that this will happen this year — much to excitement of the legislator who has been instrumental in driving the creation of the Colorado Firefighting Air Corps. “Quite frankly, this is the most important legislation of my life,” said Sen. Steve King, R-Grand Junction. The funding behind King’s effort comes on the heels of a much-anticipated state fire report that was released last week. The Colorado Division of Fire Prevention and Control found that the state lacks resources in key firefighting areas, including a lack of aerial firefighting capabilities. “Colorado does not have the ability to deliver appropriate aviation resources in a timely fashion to support local suppression response to small fires while they are still small,” states the report, which was authored by CDFPC Director Paul Cooke. The report was mandated through last year’s passage of a bill — sponsored by King and Sen. Cheri Jahn, D-Wheat Ridge — that created the Colorado Firefighting Air Corps, a state-owned firefighting fleet. The “idea” of the fleet became law, but the legislation went unfunded, at least

Photo by Deborah Grigsby Smith/Centennial Airport until the state could learn more about the feasibility of having its own fire fleet. Prior to the release of the fire report, Hickenlooper had been non-committal on the idea of undertaking the potentially enormous costs that come with operating a state-owned aerial fleet. However, Hickenlooper had been open to exploring ways of sharing those costs through a multistate effort. For months, it was uncertain whether

the fleet would ever become a reality. That all changed after Cooke released his 103page fire report on March 28. Cooke presented the report’s finding to a special legislative committee on April 3. He told lawmakers that Colorado competes with other states for federal resources to fight fires, and that the state doesn’t have the proper amount of tools needed to combat early or late-season wildfires. Cooke also said that the state current-

ly has just two, single-engine air tankers available to deal with the entire state’s firefighting needs. “The state, in terms of being able to help to bring overwhelming force to a wildfire, that’s not the case...” he said. Cooke’s report recommended that the state acquire $33 million worth of firefighting aircraft and other technology. But Cooke later told the governor’s office that it should hold off on acquiring two large, fixed-wing air tankers — as his report recommended — because precipitation from this winter’s weather makes it difficult to determine when those large tankers would even be needed this year. That cuts price tag by $12 million. So the state plans to move forward with the purchase of two multi-mission fixedwing planes and will contract for the use of four Type III rotor wing planes and four single-engine air tankers. The state will also spend $100,000 to set up a wildfire information management system, which will provide real-time fire information within the statewide fire communications system. The rest of the $21 million will be spent of airport fees, equipment and other related expenses. The Senate set aside the fleet money for this year’s budget in a placeholder funding area, until it is moved to another area within the budget. Henry Sobanet, the state’s budget director, said that the funding is expected to come from the state’s Tax Payer Bill of Rights reserves and through the delaying of paying back certain cash funds. “I think we’ll get the funding from the exact places where we want to see it come from,” Sobanet said. Alan Salazar, Hickenlooper’s chief strategist, said the governor’s office believes this is a large investment worth undertaking. “We don’t throw $20 million around lightly,” Salazar said. “But in the context of the potential costs of the fire and getting ahead of it, the consensus... is that this is a wise new position for the state to take.”

Training to aid horse owners Emergency preparedness clinic offered in May at fairgrounds By George Lurie

glurie@coloradocommunitymedia.com During the Hayman Fire in 2002, hundreds of horses along the Front Range had to be evacuated. “The horse community from both Douglas and Elbert counties responded almost immediately to the need for volunteers — and supplies — to assist in the massive effort,” said Kyle Fenner, director of Elbert County’s Community and Development Services Department and a lifelong equine enthusiast. At the time, Fenner was living in Teller County, three miles from where the fire started, and she worked alongside others to pull large animals, including her own, out of the fire’s path. Fenner said that in the aftermath of the Hayman Fire, as the community rallied to transport and then care for the displaced animals, “it was evident to Elbert and Douglas county residents who were dealing with the other end of the fire that an organization of the various horse clubs and horse owners was needed to continue with assisting in disaster rescue — as well as to work closely with the county governments to make sure the collective voice of the horse community was heard.” So, Fenner explained, the Douglas-Elbert County Horse Council (DECHC) was

formed and in just a few short years, the organization has become an invaluable resource for area horse owners. On May 12, from 9 a.m. to noon, DECHC will be conducting an emergency preparedness clinic at the Douglas County Fairgrounds in Castle Rock and owners of all large animals, including horses, are encouraged to attend. A more recent development happened early last year, Fenner explained, when the Elbert County Volunteer Safety Corps (ECVSC) was set up for the express purpose of assisting in the event of a disaster. Since then, the animal-rescue portion of the ECVSC has joined forces with its counterparts in Douglas County, forming DECART (Douglas/Elbert County Animal Response Team). DECART allows the two counties to work together in the event of an emergency situation, using DECHC volunteers to support large animal needs. Just months after DECART’s formation, the Black Forest Fire sparked into an inferno and the rescue team was mobilized. Fenner said DECHC, through board members Fred Werhli, coordinated and made calls to DECART volunteers, who efficiently and safely handled over 500 large animals evacuated to the Elbert County Fairgrounds. According to its website, DECHC’s four-fold mission is: To provide an association for persons having a common interest in the promo-

A raised red oval, a couple of inches in diameter, sits at the top of Alex Meredith’s forehead. It is the physical mark of a besieged mind. Meredith, who is 29, started bashing himself in the head when he was in his teens. Now, his parents can see it coming. A tranquil moment of drawing at the kitchen table cedes to Alex’s high-pitched squeal, his wrists colliding. Once he starts hitting himself, there’s nothing to do but freeze and wait for it to pass. Meredith was diagnosed with autism when he was very young. Later, his parents were told he also displayed symptoms of mental illness — obsessive-compulsive disorder, anxiety, psychosis and depression. For Carol and John Meredith, Alex’s parents, the search for treatment has brought them to psychiatrists and psychologists, to mental health centers and the community-centered boards that serve people with autism and other developmental disabilities. Carol heads The Arc of Arapahoe and Douglas Counties, an organization that advocates for people with disabilities, and has access to more than the usual range of leads and contacts. Still, nobody seems to know exactly what to do with Alex. The Merediths are not alone in their frustration, according to an ongoing study by JFK Partners, a program that does research on developmental disabilities at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. For people with the dual diagnoses of developmental disability — which can range from Down syndrome to autism to cerebral palsy — and mental illness, getting treatment means navigating a fragmented system, the study has found. Funding quirks have created huge gaps in care. As a result, family members find themselves alone — and often isolated — in trying to manage complex problems that need professional support.

Lack of help can hurt

In the worst cases, the repercussions across society can be extreme. In a recent interview with The New Yorker, the father of Newtown school killer Adam Lanza described trying and failing to find adequate treatment for his son, whose world slowly shrank to contain only his mother and his video games. Lanza was diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome, considered a mild form of autism, when he was 13. A psychiatrist at Yale’s Child Study Center later noted symptoms of obsessive-compulsive disorder as well, and his father now believes his autism may have masked schizophrenia. “Asperger’s makes people unusual, but it doesn’t make people like this,” Peter Lanza told The New Yorker. The number of Coloradans affected isn’t small. Nationally, around one in three people with a developmental disability also has a diagnosis of some form of mental illness, according to a frequently cited study by the National Association of State directors of Developmental Disabilities Services. That would translate to around 35,000 people in the state with dual diagnoses, based on common estimates of the prevalence of developmental disabilities. Many are left without adequate care, and some without any care at all. Expensive visits to the emergency room — which often provide little help except for short-term stabilization — have become a primary line of defense. Advocates like Meredith are hoping that the latest state-commissioned study at CU will lead to a change in the way that people with complex developmental and mental-health diagno-

ses are treated. One option would be to model Colorado’s care after a program that began in New Hampshire and has since been adopted in other states, with the idea of providing crisis intervention and care coordinators for people who needed these services. But any solutions remain a few years off at best, leaving families in this situation to seek each other out for ideas and support.

Holistic care urged

The current system in Colorado “divides people up into their different diagnoses,” says JFK Partners director Cordelia Robinson Rosenberg. “But care has to treat people holistically.” Most people with both developmental disabilities and behavioral health conditions are covered by Medicaid. But in Colorado, the public insurance treats the two diagnostic categories under incompatible payment systems - the first as fee-for-service, and the second as managed care. Carl Clark, who heads the Mental Health Center of Denver, says that while health-care providers often try to work together to treat people who fall into both categories, the divide in payment models is explicit. “Our funding from the state (for Medicaid enrollees) says you do not use this for people with developmental disability,” Clark says. As a result, mental health centers are often ill-equipped to offer some of the services — such as long-term housing support — that people with developmental disabilities need. At the same time, the two funding models have left little room to develop specialists who are skilled in diagnosing and treating both developmental disabilities — which can include fetal alcohol syndrome, a notoriously hard thing to pinpoint — and complex mental illnesses. And even experienced psychiatrists may have trouble attributing behaviors to one diagnosis or another. “Unfortunately,” says Clark, “the science does not divide the brain up as clearly as funding sources do.” The complexity of who pays for what can have real impacts on treatment. Carol Meredith recently discovered that a psychologist who was having some success in treating her son hadn’t been paid since October. Nobody — including the psychologist herself — could figure out who was responsible for paying her. Worse, research from the University of Colorado has found that a significant number of Coloradans are excluded from treatment entirely, Rosenberg says. Medicaid establishes an IQ thresh-

old for developmental disabilities, excluding people who surpass that bar but who still suffer from severe social or intellectual limitations. Surveys conducted by JFK Partners found that for every one person who is receiving services for developmental disabilities under Medicaid, Rosenberg says, there’s another person who isn’t being served. That includes people who have unmet mental-health needs.

ER is often only option

Marijo Rymer, who heads The Arc of Colorado, says parents of children with dual diagnoses call her in frustration after failing to find any help for their children. Too frequently, the only option is the emergency room. “When their children are hurting themselves, or hurting them, and they don’t know what to do,” says Rymer, “we will advise people to call 911.” Doing so repeatedly can help build a case for the kind of sustained longterm services that people with dual diagnoses need. But encounters with police and emergency rooms can cost patients, hospitals and taxpayers a huge amount of money. And ERs are geared toward crisis management — often the most disruptive way and least effective way to treat someone who needs consistent care. Valerie Saiz and her husband Richard waited four days and four nights in an emergency room in 2010 — and again in 2011 — in an effort to get treatment for their now 16-year-old son. Graham, who has autism and bipolar disorder, had been hitting himself violently. His parents took turns restraining him. “We noticed that the other kids getting admitted to the ER, if they were aggressive to others, they’d restrain them,” said Saiz. “If they were selfabusive, we’d have to do it ourselves.” Each time he was admitted, Graham was discharged without a plan for treatment, says Saiz. The family was forced to craft their own solution, putting a helmet and mitts on Graham to protect him from himself, and sometimes locking him in his room to protect the rest of the family. “If we’re locking Graham in his room for safety, I’m sure other people are. Other people just call 911 left and right. People have to do what they can to survive,” Saiz says. “But it shouldn’t be about survival.” I-News is the public service journalism arm of Rocky Mountain PBS. To read more, go to inewsnetwork.org.

Emotional school meeting has upbeat ending Attendees hopeful that officials will listen, act By Jane Reuter

jreuter@coloradocommunitymedia. com The Douglas County School District’s second Board Unplugged meeting lasted nearly three hours, and was punctuated by raised voices, frequent interruptions and philosophical clashes, but it ended on a cooperative note. About 50 people attended the April 1 event at Castle Rock’s Mesa Middle School, designed as a less formal version of the Douglas County School Board’s traditional meetings held at the district administration building. Despite several highly emotional exchanges, community members who have for months said they’re concerned about the board’s willingness to work with them expressed optimism about the evening’s finale. Board president Kevin Larsen promised to provide follow-up information on a variety of issues raised, some of it at the next regular board meeting on April 15. Those issues include cost of a potential district survey, details on a proposed K-8 special education school, costs for assessments and a data collection system and the potential re-establishment of a policy review committee. “I think we are trying to find some common ground to come together,” said Larsen. “With all humility, we will do our best. If we don’t have the answers, we will say it.” Larsen also announced DCSD has hired a parent advocate, who will work with parents as concerns arise. Unresolved issues then may be taken to the administration or board level. Six of the seven board members attended the informal meeting. Craig Richardson was not there. Unlike the first Board Unplugged meeting held in March, during which participants were divided into groups to discuss specific topics, audience members sat on folding chairs arranged in a circle for a general discussion of their concerns. Parent Laura Young Alfano expressed gratitude for the board’s attentiveness. “If this truly is the beginning, I am grateful,” she said. “There are really few main issues where there is huge, deep divide. The (choice) scholarship program? Deep divide. Let’s not start there. But there are a lot of other things where it’s more about how things are done, how are they communicated. Hopefully this is really truly the beginning of listening and smaller groups.” Several audience members testified

about low teacher morale. One man, who identified himself as Mike, said he represented his DCSD teacher wife, who didn’t feel comfortable speaking out. As a teacher in another district, the man said he knows many DCSD teachers are seeking employment elsewhere. “We used to get 10 resumes from Douglas County; now we’re getting 60,” he said. “We can’t hire them all. “They had no reason to leave as far as seniority or status. It was because they needed to get out of the district.” Board member Doug Benevento said DCSD last year hired more teachers from outside the district than it lost to other districts. “I get there are probably folks who are unhappy, but it’s unfair to characterize them as all, or say there’s a great migration north because the numbers would indicate we have a great migration south,” he said “I happen to respectfully disagree with you,” Mike said. “There’s a reputation going on about Douglas County schools. Whether you have numbers to say it’s not true, there’s a reputation about it now.” Parent Kelle Palka agreed, saying parents know teachers’ feelings better than board members. “How many teachers are you confidants with that tell you, really, what’s going on?” she asked. “We are their confidants. The majority are unhappy.” Larsen noted the turnover has varied “wildly” among DCSD’s schools, and suggested schools with high turnover be scrutinized. “Are they losing teachers that are positively leaving for an opportunity within the district, and are they being replaced with a teacher of equal caliber and experience or are they not?” he said. “Is the environment such that they’re not enjoying it anymore? I think we can look at that.” “I’m certainly interested in exploring the alternatives to teacher evaluations so teachers take ownership,” board member Jim Geddes said. “Once that happens, I think it will be much more acceptable to the teachers.” “The point of an evaluation is to make you better, not get rid of you,” Larsen agreed. Several audience members urged the board to listen to parents, and not discount their voices. “You have a room full of people that are passionate about the school district,” said former board candidate Julie Keim. “Please try to find ways to engage us. You would find us a lot less resistant if you would listen to us, talk to us, help us understand your priorities. We’re resistant because you are shutting us out of the process.” The next Board Unplugged meeting is set for May 6 at Rocky Heights Middle School in Highlands Ranch.

Pot and substance abuse no ‘gray matter’ Colorado law legalizing retail marijuana sales for adults age 21 and older took effect on Jan. 1. So, now that pot is legal for adults, it’s not such a big deal if kids give it a try, right? Pot use, and any drug or alcohol use for that matter, is still illegal for kids and young adults. Perhaps more important than the legal vs. illegal argument is the fact that any of these substances have dangerous effects on the developing brains, the gray matter, of young people. Why do kids use drugs and alcohol? Peer pressure is certainly a reason, but not the main one. The choice is typically due to boredom, easy access, underestimation of the harm or to help diminish symptoms of a mental-health issue. According to the Colorado Health Foundation 2012 Health Report Card, “On average, teens begin drinking alcohol at the age of 14. Those who start drinking before age 15 are four times more likely to develop a dependence on alcohol.” For these kids, there is clear and present danger to brain development and addiction resulting in damaging impacts throughout life. Our brain doesn’t reach “adulthood” until around the age of 25, and research has shown time and time again that pot

and all substances impact the teen brain much differently than adult brains. In adolescence, delicate synapses are still forming, gray matter is growing and the brain is focused on building the parts that maintain memory, learning, emotional control and executive functioning, which will be used for the rest of their lives. Early substance use stunts these growth areas while increasing the possibility of mentalhealth issues, academic failure, addiction and relationship difficulties. While alcohol is the most abused substance by teens, a study from the Colorado State University Extension office reported that up to 56.5 percent of Colorado teens have used some form of illegal drug by the 12th grade, with up to 6.8 percent having used an illegal drug before age 13.

letters to the editor don’t blame the system

State law provides that a candidate may petition on to the ballot without going to the assembly at all. Major party candidates for public office may begin circulating petitions the first Monday of February. The deadline to submit those petitions is no later than 85 days before the primary election. In 2014 that was March 31. In the sheriff’s race both John Anderson and Lora Thomas chose not to circulate petitions, presumably assuming that they would have sufficient support at the assembly. To blame the current statutory scheme for a conscious decision made by their campaigns is somewhat disingenuous. Many candidates over the years have chosen to bypass the caucus and

assembly process altogether and have been successful in their primary election bids. Candidates for office did not have a mere nine days to collect signatures, but 56 days to do so, starting Feb. 3. The suggestion by unsuccessful candidates that the caucus and assembly system is hostage to party bosses or a political machine is an insult to every delegate at assembly. I chose to publicly support Tony Spurlock believing him to be the only truly qualified candidate for sheriff. No one bought my vote, and I am not part of a political machine. I am certainly not a party boss. I took my time, went to caucus — which only 11 voters Letters continues on Page 9

Enough barking might be worse than a bite For the umpteenth time the house next door has been rented. Like most of the others, the move-in was so discreet that I didn’t even see it. I don’t know how many are living there now, genders or what they look like. I think ownership of a big dog that barks incessantly is required for occupancy. I always hope that my newest neighbors might just have two or three neon tetras, but it’s always the Hound of the Baskervilles. I know, I know: It could be worse. It could be a crack house or a party house. It’s never that. But there is almost always the torture of compromised days and nights by a spectral beast constantly BARKING loudly. I am not talking about five or 10 minutes at a time. The current canine can go on for hours. To give you an idea, he or she gave me the idea for this column when it broke into my nap two hours ago, and is still going strong. Why don’t I mention something to the owners? I have tried that in the past. The next step is to file a complaint. That’s Section 1.05 (1) (h) under Douglas County Resolution R-998-100. That can become a Class 2 petty offense, and it sets up the possibility of resolution or a really bad relationship with the neighbor forever after — or even retaliation. One wishes that responsible dog ownership would never come close to reaching that point, but obviously it does if there is a seven-step warning process. That is Section 1.05 (2). The Douglas County website pages on pet ownership responsibilities are excellent and thorough, but who would

ever read them, until after the filing of a complaint? Another reason I won’t complain — yet — is that these owners, like all of the others, will be gone in a year or a year and a half. As I said: Umpteen. If someone were to buy the house and look like they would stick around for a while, I would communicate something to them. I built the backyard fence 20 years ago. All that separates Smitty from Baskerville are some aged wooden pickets. If I had the money, I’d replace the whole thing. That’s always one of life’s biggest words: “If.” The good news is that Smitty rarely goes out there. His unwillingness to go outside if it is even slightly too warm or too cool is astounding. He completely refuses snow. Also rain and fog and certain mists. I think it would be nifty if everyone received a copy of pet ownership responsibilities the day they unpacked. I’m not going to do it. Chances are it wouldn’t do any good. As I have said before, some people own dogs who shouldn’t be allowed to own a houseplant. I watched a great Hitchcock film, “Rear

and prescription drug use is on the rise in the south metro area. Opiates and synthetic opiates, including Percocet, heroin and OxyContin, are extremely addictive, so not only do they have a devastating effect on teen brain development; they are extremely difficult to quit. How do you recognize the signs of substance abuse in teens? When is it normal teen moodiness or addiction? Most often there are key, noticeable changes in behavior, moods, grades and friends. You may notice the telltale signs of slurred speech, “looking high,” dilated pupils or changes in eating and sleeping patterns. Be aware of your teen’s “normal” and gauge changes from there. Unchecked, substance abuse in teens can lead to immediate health risks such as risky sexual behavior and physical injury. Addicted teens have a higher dropout rate and increased criminal behavior and involvement in the juvenile justice system. Preventing young people from trying drugs and alcohol is the first and safest line of defense in maintaining healthy brain development and a healthy person. Prevention requires open and honest communication, plus clear rules and expectations about behavior. It also requires a

The truth probably isn’t in the middle So the other day I found myself in the middle of a situation. I was a third party to two other people debating and even arguing over an event that had taken place. They both viewed and experienced the circumstances differently and at this point had become quite agitated with one another. When they asked me my opinion and who I thought was right, my first instinct was to run as fast I could away from the situation. Although that was probably the right move, it was almost impossible based on where we were at the moment. And then my over-developed sense of obligation kicked in anyway and I tried to mediate as best I could. I went to my “goto” line in these situations and said something like, “It sounds like you both have a strong opinion about what happened and the truth can probably be found somewhere in the middle.” Is that a cop-out or what? So much for my “go-to” line. If truth is really truth, how can it be found in the middle? Are we compromising truth for political correctness and making sure we smooth over feelings for all parties involved, making sure everyone

in the situation is OK? And if so, is there anything really wrong with that approach? Unfortunately I think there is — it’s called avoiding the truth. Now there are some people who are extremely direct and never have an issue with speaking their mind or telling others exactly how they feel and how they perceive things. This doesn’t mean they are right or even necessarily telling the truth, it just means that they are direct. These folks typically live by a saying, “Seldom right, but never in doubt.” The other extreme is people who will not utter a word; they will stand by and Norton continues on Page 9

close look at your own substance use and beliefs. If you think your child is using drugs, early intervention is the best option for successful treatment and healthy brain growth. Today there are proven practices for treating the unique needs of young people with addiction that are equally effective for people who are “ready to quit” and those who are refusing to quit. Most treatment occurs in an outpatient setting and involves the help and support of the teen’s family. Teen substance use is no “gray matter.” The facts are black and white about the dangers to growth and development and consequences of inhibited decisionmaking at such an impressionable time of life. Start talking with your teen today and let him or her know that this is not a gray area: No drug or alcohol use is OK. Your support of your teen’s brain health and overall wellness will have long-lasting rewards.

out of over 400 in our precinct bothered to attend — and asked to be elected as an assembly delegate expressing my support for various candidates. Do we now fault a candidate for having broad based support, or condemn the system because the unsuccessful candidates failed to mobilize their supporters or exercise their petition option? Our caucus system dates back decades to a time when delegates rode hours on horseback to attend a county assembly as a delegate from their precinct. A debate on whether it remains relevant in this day of worldwide instantaneous communication is a legitimate topic for discussion. In the meantime, however, we need not fault those who embrace the system and mobilize supporters to work the caucus and assembly system to their advantage.

I have concerns that the changes being proposed could have historic and potentially harmful consequences both environmentally and recreationally, and I have made these concerns known to the appropriate departments and individuals at the local, state and federal level. At this point the final decision and plan to mitigate the recreation and environmental changes is now in the hands of the State Parks & Wildlife Department and the Army Corps of Engineers, and we expect the final legal agreement and plan to be released and finalized in April sometime.

Drama gives way to truth and we find ourselves back in the vicious cycle of political correctness and making sure everyone feels good. Maybe it’s more like the epic line by Jack Nicholson in the movie “A Few Good Men” when he shouts from the witness stand, “You can’t handle the truth!” How about you, is the truth found somewhere in the middle?

I like to hear airplanes flying overhead once or twice in the middle of the night. I try to imagine who is flying and where to and why.

Ridge Medical Center, likewise, is a fourminute drive from The Wildlife Experience. Maureen Durkin, assistant dean for strategic development and evaluation for CU’s college of nursing, said her department is eager to work hand-in-hand with established facilities in a region that’s “growing by leaps and bounds.” The move to the south metro area also provides some breathing room. “Our nursing program at the Anschutz campus — we’re a little bit constrained in our numbers, and so this allows us to admit more students into the nursing program,” Durkin said. Thirty-six students will take nursing classes this fall, with possible growth in the future. The courses will fulfill the continuing education requirements demanded of working nurses. Liniger said the expansion of the program will also help address the lingering shortage of nurses. Liniger has battled significant health problems and told the reception crowd that he has a deep appreciation for nurses. Citing Douglas County’s recent designation as the second fastest-growing county for job growth nationwide, CU president Bruce Benson said the opening of The Wildlife Experience campus could help it grab the No. 1 spot. Maureen Taylor, chief executive officer at Sky Ridge Medical Center, said healthcare is among the top five industries for job growth. Students who attend the Colorado School of Public Health will have the ability to earn a certificate in health industry analytics, readying them for today’s constantly-changing health care market. The hybrid courses will enable working professionals to split their time between classroom learning and online classes. David Goff, dean of the Colorado School of Public Health, said he hopes to partner with local hospitals and practitioners on health need assessments and suicide prevention campaigns. The university could also work with schools on nutrition programs and in-home studies on how, for example, home allergens impact health, Goff said. More information about enrollment and classes can be found at www.CUsouthdenver.org.

Security specialist finds joy in work Apple Award winner says students, life, ample reason to smile

By Jane Reuter

NOW IS THE TIME TO PURCHASE A HOME OR REFINANCE!

jreuter@coloradocommunitymedia.com Pete Mazula exudes a curious combination of joy and fierceness. Both are inspired by the students at Mountain Ridge Middle School, where the 60-year-old Mazula has spent 10 years as a security specialist. “I can’t even begin to tell you how much I love it here and how much I love my kids,” he said. “I’d do anything for these guys. I’d take a bullet for any one of these kids without even thinking about it.” That brand of dedication resulted in Mazula being named the Douglas County School District Apple Award for 2014’s School Employee of the Year. Not only does Mazula work security, he coaches track and boys basketball. He knows and connects so deeply with the students and their parents that he’s attended Eagle Scout ceremonies and other off-site student events. Because he directs parent traffic twice daily, his is the first face most students see every morning, and the last they see at the end of the school day. “I’m out there in the rain, snow, it doesn’t matter — I’m always smiling,” Mazula said. From Mazula’s perspective, he has plenty to smile about. A 20-year West Metro Fire Rescue firefighter and Jefferson County sheriff’s reserve officer, he was forced to retire from firefighting after contracting hepatitis C and undergoing a liver transplant. The disease typically is contracted by blood-to-blood contact, and while Mazula can’t be sure, he believes he became infected as a firefighter while treating an intravenous drug user. “When I first started (firefighting), we didn’t have rubber gloves,” he said. Post-surgery and in his 40s, Mazula knew he was too young to retire. His firefighting career had included work with juvenile arsonists and burn victims, respon-

Mountain Ridge Middle School security specialist and DCSD Employee of the Year Pete Mazula talks with eighth grader Cameron Clarke during lunch hour April 2. Photo by Jane Reuter sibilities he’d treasured for the time spent with children. That led him to apply for school security posts, and to the Highlands Ranch middle school, Mountain Ridge. One decade later, Mazula intends to stay at least another five years. “The kids keep me young,” said the married father of two adult children. His steady presence has earned the students’ trust. Mazula said the children confide personal worries and concerns about other students, knowing the information will be taken seriously even while their names remain confidential. “I think they feel safe, yet they also know they can come to us,” he said. Mazula shares his personal history during health classes at Mountain Ridge, hoping it will teach children not only about disease and health issues, but resiliency. “I’m not a professional teacher, but I’m an educator because of the things I went through with my illnesses,” he said. “I made it through two liver transplants, a broken neck and prostate cancer, and I’m still here. Probably that’s the reason I smile so much.”

School forums aimed at safeguarding kids District invites parents to discuss current programs, future ideas By Jane Reuter

jreuter@coloradocommunitymedia. com The Douglas County School District is inviting parents to help it protect their children. A series of forums, triggered by the loss of several students to suicide and other 2014 incidents, are planned this month. The series, “Safeguarding Children: Building Resiliency,” began April 9 at Parker’s Chaparral High School and continues April 16 at Highlands Ranch’s ThunderRidge High School and April 23 at Castle Rock’s Castle View High School. All the forums are planned from 6 to 9 p.m. Local law enforcement officers, mental health experts and school staff will join to discuss using physical and psychological safety measures to protect students’ wellbeing. Four Douglas County teens were lost to suicide between Jan. 31 and Feb. 11 — a number equal to the total of teen suicides in the county in 2013. DCSD is seeking parents’ input and involvement in creating a safe haven for students.

Real Estate

“We’re really looking for this to be interactive with our parents, to really talk about the things we have in the community and our district for supporting children, and the way those things overlap to keep kids safe,” said Jason Germain, DCSD’s chief student advocacy officer. The forums are “not a sit-and-get-lectured style format,” he said, but will invite parents to participate in tabletop exercises and discussion with DCSD staff. A resource fair will feature community partners like Arapahoe/Douglas Mental Health Network and Children’s Hospital. DCSD also is involved in a longer-term evaluation of its mental health staffing levels. At about 900-to-1, DCSD’s ratio of students to counselors is well below the 250to-1 level recommended by the American School Counselor Association. When elementary schools — which don’t have counselors — are excluded, the ratio of students to counselors at the middle and high school levels is 350-to-1, according to DCSD staff. “What we’re doing now is we’re integrating requests from principals, school counselors, (and other) members of our teams (to learn) what they are indicating is needed in our buildings,” German said. “Instead of just haphazardly assigning resources, we’re taking a larger district stance around that.” That report eventually will be taken to district leaders for their response.

Army sergeant recognized by town First week of April declared ‘Chris Selheim Week’ By Ryan Boldrey

rboldrey@coloradocommunitymedia.com Chris Selheim may have been humbled after a recent proclamation declared the first week of April in Castle Rock to be Chris Selheim Week. But for those who work with Selheim — who has served the town since 2007, currently as a mechanic, and his country since 1990 — they are humbled just to be around him. “The first day he started was in 2007, when we had those blizzards,” said public works director Bob Goebel. “We were so overwhelmed and Chris walked in the door with his commercial driver’s license and his lunch and said `how can I help?’ We hired him on the spot as a contract laborer, then hired him on shortly thereafter.” Selheim found himself in a similar, albeit more serious situation when he graduated from Douglas County High School, signing with the Army in 1989 while the country was in the process of invading Panama. When he got done with basic training and airborne school, he deployed to Saudi Arabia and went into Iraq, where he served during Operation Desert Storm. A military policeman, Selheim, currently a sergeant, was in charge of enemy prisoners of war during that first deployment. In the eight deployments since that

first one he has been to Guantanamo Bay, Somalia, Afghanistan and back to Iraq. “I’ve worked here seven years and been gone three of those so far,” he said after being honored by Mayor Paul Donahue at the April 1 town council meeting. “Through my military career the town has been exceptional in its support, not just as a whole, but as individuals, it’s been a great place to work. … They’ve really helped with the transitions, some of which have been tough.” While April 1 was a special night to honor Selheim, Goebel said the town welcomes the opportunity to work with military personnel, both veterans and current enlistees, and said the town is more than happy to work around deployments. “Their commitment shows through in their everyday work and the character that they present to other people is contagious and positive, and that is exactly what we need,” Goebel said. “It is a different kind of service, but what we do is service to the public and the military is obviously service to the public and our nation.” Selheim comes from a long line of military service in his family. His grandfather flew bombers in World War II, his dad and his uncles represented the Navy and Air Force during Viet Nam and he has a great uncle who was a marine. With the U.S occupation of Afghanistan coming to a halt, Selheim thinks he may have served his last tour, but he is appreciative of everything he has gone through and all the lifelong friends he has made. “It’s all about patriotism,” he said.

Suspect in custody following stabbing Staff report A stabbing along East Plum Creek Trail has landed the suspect in custody, while the victim was hospitalized, being treated for injuries. Detectives have determined that the two men involved in the altercation are both homeless and were living in a tent in the field behind the 100 block of S. Wilcox Street in Castle Rock. According to authorities, the two had been drinking and began arguing before the stabbing occurred. A passerby called 911 around 7 p.m.

April 6 after finding the victim on the trail. Castle Rock Police and Castle Rock Fire and Rescue responded immediately near the intersection of Plum Creek Parkway and Wilcox Street. Police placed Abraham Little, 28, in the Douglas County Detention Center on first degree charges of attempted murder and assault. Formal charges will be filed by the 18th Judicial District Attorney’s Office. The 29-year-old victim was stabbed multiple times and was transported to a local hospital, where he remains in serious condition. His name is not being released.

Police investigate allegations of inappropriate relationship Staff report Castle Rock police are investigating allegations of an inappropriate relationship between a Castle View High School teacher and a student. Detectives are working to determine whether any criminal activity has occurred and who might be involved. The investigation is in the early stages. Castle Rock police want to remind parents to talk to their children about appro-

priate versus inappropriate relationships. If parents are concerned about something they hear from their child, they are asked to call police. Because no charges have been filed, no additional information is available at this time. The Castle Rock Police Department remains in close contact with officials from the Douglas County School District. Anyone with information to share is urged to call Detective Mike Williams at 303-663-6125.

At right are Chris’ parents, Judy and John Selheim.

“I don’t consider this just for myself,” he said. “This is for all service members within the town, who work for the town, and consider this to be their home.”

Business tax credit bill moves forward Employers given more incentive to create Colorado jobs By Vic Vela

vvela@coloradocommunitymedia.com The expansion of a job-growth incentive tax credit is gaining momentum at the Legislature. Under current law, businesses can earn income tax credits over a five-year period for every job they create in Colorado. The new bill would expand the availability of that credit to eight years and would make other modifications to an effort that received bipartisan support at the

Legislature last year. House Minority Leader Brian DelGrosso, R-Loveland, and Rep. Tracy KraftTharp, D-Arvada, said the effort to expand the law is a testament to its popularity. “While our economy is starting to move along, this is a bill that will help us move back to that robust state,” Kraft-Tharp said on the House floor on April 4, just before House members gave initial approval to the legislation. The bill was expected to easily pass the House during a final vote, which was scheduled for April 7. The changes to the bill are business friendly. In addition to expanding the availability of the credit, the bill reduces a requirement that exists in the current law, which man-

dates that businesses must offer an employee 110 percent of the average county wage. The new bill lowers that requirement to 100 percent. The bill also alters the “burden of proof” that companies must meet in order to qualify for the credit. Currently, businesses must prove that the jobs likely would not have been located in Colorado had it not been for the credit. According to the bill’s fiscal note, the changes to the bill “require employers to state that, without the credit, the probability of locating the jobs in Colorado would be reduced.” But the tax credit has guardrails because it is performance-based. The new employee must be employed for a full year before the business receives the credit, which is

equal to one-half of the amount of what employers pay for a worker’s federal Social Security and Medicare taxes. Aiding the bill’s chances of becoming law is a reduced fiscal impact that was presented to the House Appropriations Committee just hours before it received a full vote in the House. The original version of the bill would have cost the state $55 million through the 2027-2028 fiscal year. But fiscal analysts and bill sponsors managed to lower that amount to $30 million. “It is important to keep Colorado competitive and continue to attract new businesses to the state,” Rep. Kraft-Tharp said in a statement after the House vote. “This bill will create good jobs and help more businesses hire workers.”

LEGISLATIVE BRIEFS Senate passes long bill

The Senate passed the annual state budget bill on April 4, with bipartisan support. The $23 billion “long bill” had previously passed the House. The Senate’s work included the passage of an amendment that sets aside $21 million for the creation of a state aerial firefighting fleet. The 2014-2015 fiscal year budget features a $200 million increase in K-12 education funding and $100 million that would backfill education budget cuts that the Legislature enacted during recession years. The bill also includes $100 million in additional higher education funding and provides relief for homeowners who were impacted by last year’s floods and wildfires. The long bill now heads back to the House for the consideration of Senate amendments.

Plumbing fixtures bill leads to partisan battle A bill that would prohibit the sale of low-efficiency plumbing fixtures in Colorado is on its way to the governor’s desk. The bill would ban the sale of faucets, shower heads and toilets that are not “WaterSense” certified by the federal government. The ban would take effect in 2016. The bill had previously passed the Senate and it received similar debate in the House last week, with Democrats arguing that the changes could conserve billions of gallons of water. But Republicans said the bill is another example of government telling people what to do. Gov. John Hickenlooper has not given any indication as to whether he intends to sign the bill.

Remote testimony bill advances

Flood relief bill passes House

Residents of rural parts of Colorado may no longer have to drive several hours to testify on legislation at the Capitol, under a bill that passed a House panel on March 31. House Bill 1303 — sponsored by House Speaker Mark Ferrandino, DDenver and Rep. Ray Scott, R-Grand Junction — would allow legislative committees to take remote testimony from witnesses from different parts of the state. Videoconferencing links would be set up in a few different areas of the state, with a requirement that one of the links be set up in the Western Slope. The bill received unanimous support from the House State, Veterans and Military Affairs Committee and now heads to the Appropriations Committee for further consideration.

Changes made to a flood relief bill appeased Republicans in the House on April 4. The legislation provides tax relief for victims who were impacted by last year’s floods. The bill also provides relief for future victims whose homes might be destroyed by a natural disaster. Republicans on the House Appropriations Committee said during a recent hearing that they were concerned about the ongoing cost to the state. That problem seemed to have been fixed on April 4, when the bill was amended to create a process that allows future legislatures to conduct reviews of the legislation. The bill received initial approval through a voice vote in the House and was expected to pass with overwhelming bipartisan support during a final vote that was scheduled for April 7.

Changes likely to be made to American Indian tuition bill By Vic Vela

vvela@coloradocommunitymedia.com A bill that seeks to provide tuition relief for out-of-state American Indian students will be scaled back because of difficulties over the cost assessment of the legislation, according to the bill sponsor. The original intention of House Bill 1124 was to allow all students living out of state who have tribal connections to Colorado to receive in-state tuition rates at state colleges and universities. But the legislation is expected to be amended to apply only to incoming students and not American Indians who are currently enrolled. “What do you say to that person?” said Rep. Joe Salazar, D-Thornton, the bill sponsor. “Maybe that’s something we can work on next year.” Salazar said the changes to the bill became necessary after learning more about how colleges and universities count American Indian students. Under the bill, only students who are among one of the 48 federally recognized tribes that have historical ties to Colorado qualify for in-state tuition. But Salazar said that estimating costs is difficult because schools don’t dig deep into the specific tribal backgrounds of students. The Legislative Council estimates that the bill’s first-year cost to the state will

exceed $668,000. Also, state colleges and universities were estimated to lose more than $5 million in tuition revenue under the original version of the bill. However, they are expected to see an increase of students who wouldn’t otherwise attend their schools. But all of those statistics would be difficult to calculate under the current system of American Indian student calculation, which Salazar calls a counting system that results in “pie in the sky numbers.” “They have a bunch of students out there who just check the box and say they’re American Indian, but they don’t prove which tribe they’re from,” Salazar said. “They can have, as you sometimes hear, a Cherokee Indian princess grandmother, and they mark the box, `American Indian.’” Salazar said the changes to the bill could end up being a good thing because colleges would then have to start classifying the specific tribes from which students belong. He also said that the cost to the state “would be quite minimal, if anything at all,” once the bill is amended. “I did run it past stakeholders and the stakeholders said it’s better to have instate tuition for American Indian students than not,” Salazar said. “And if it looks like the bill is going to die because of a wrong fiscal note, then we don’t want the bill to die.”

Thanks for telling us about the law to have our buried utility lines marked before we dig. I sure wouldn’t want to be responsible for expensive repairs or hurting anybody. – Jared told us

Right you are, Jared. Always call 811 toll-free at least two full business days before you dig. A technician will come out and mark buried utility lines, which could potentially help you avoid disaster. It’s free, it’s safe, and it’s the law! Oh, and don’t forget mulch and plenty of water!

Two hospitals score high on safety list Consumer Reports weighs multiple factors in ratings By Jane Reuter

jreuter@coloradocommunitymedia.com Two Douglas County hospitals topped a Consumer Reports list of hospital safety for the Denver metro area. Lone Tree’s Sky Ridge Medical Center and Parker Adventist were rated first and second among 16 metro-area hospitals, based on five categories related to hospital safety. Sky Ridge scored 66 of a possible 100 points, and Parker Adventist, 65. Each of the five categories included 20 possible points relating to infections, readmissions, patient communications, necessary procedures and mortality. “We are thrilled,” Sky Ridge CEO Maureen Tarrant said. “This particular recognition by Consumer Reports is a gold star. All of us consider Consumer Reports the go-to place for being rigorous in your analysis and determination of providing guest services and products. To be added to that list for such an important service — hospital care — just makes us all tremendously proud.

“We’re very proud to have achieved this within about 10 years of opening.” So is Parker Adventist, which opened just six months after Sky Ridge in early 2004. “This ranking really supports our belief that here at Parker Adventist we deliver some of the highest-quality medical care in the metro area,” said hospital spokeswoman Rachel Robinson. “Quality and patient safety is a top priority for us.” Among agencies that provide healthcare ratings, Tarrant said Consumer Reports is the most comprehensive. “It not only includes traditionally publicly reported statistics such as infection rates, but it even looks at about four different categories of performance,” she said. “Those include patient satisfaction and evidence-based medicine protocols, such as how much radiation you get when you get CAT scans at Sky Ridge. Those four categories are really very, very comprehensive.” Consumer Reports’ mortality ratings are based on how likely patients are to die within 30 days of hospital admittance for a heart attack, heart failure or pneumonia. It also considers how often surgery patients with treatable complications die during their stay. The data is based on patients aged 65 and older.

Town seeks input on future signage Staff report What should future business signs along Interstate 25 in Castle Rock look like in terms of sizes, mate-

rials, colors, placement and more? The Town of Castle Rock is asking residents and business owners to let staff know their personal

preferences either through participating in an interactive online survey at CRgov. com/I25signs, or by attending an open house, scheduled from 4-7 p.m. April 16

at Town Hall, 100 N. Wilcox Street. In addition to a few other questions, the online survey gives residents a series of 18 different styles of

signage that can be seen around the metro Denver area, and then asks participants to rate them from 1 to 5, from like to dislike. Participants also have the option to provide reasoning for why they like or don’t like a particular look. “Interstate 25 is vital to commerce in Castle Rock, and development along the corridor is expected to continue,” the online survey states. “It’s important that the community have a unified vision for that development, including signs. “For the study, the corridor is defined as areas visible to those traveling on I-25 at high speeds. Because of Castle Rock’s topography, that ranges from areas right up next to the highway to those set back as much as a quarter-mile away.” Input from the online survey and the open house will be considered, along with other suggestions, to draft the guidelines for what is being called the I-25 Sign Plan. According to a news release from the

town, “the plan will not be law, but rather a tool for developers and property owners to use to understand the sign design elements that are compatible with the community’s vision for the I-25 corridor.” For those who attend the open house, there will be “keypad polling sessions,” similar to the online survey, conducted at 4:30 and 6 p.m. The feedback from the open house, as well as the online survey, will be used to create visual sign concepts that will be incorporated into the plan. Those concepts will be available at the above web link by mid-May for the community to view. The town’s planning commission is then expected to consider the sign plan in June, and if things go according to plan, town council would take action in July. Anyone with questions on the project is asked to contact project manager Martin Hudson at 720-7332202 or at mhudson@crgov. com.

NTSB: Plane crashed after only second flight Agency releases preliminary report on fatal aircraft accident in Highland Ranch By Hannah Garcia

hgarcia@ coloradocommunitymedia.com

Authorities survey the scene of a small plane crash in a field near Lucent Boulevard in Highlands Ranch on March 29. The crash left the pilot, James Peoples of Littleton, dead. Photo by Chris Rotar

Witnesses said the pilot was “struggling to stay airborne” before the fatal March 29 plane crash in Highlands Ranch, according to the National Transportation Safety Board. The agency released a preliminary report on the accident April 3, two days after Douglas County Coroner Lora Thomas identified the deceased man as James Peoples, 60, of Littleton, and listed the manner of death as an accident. Peoples was the only person onboard. “The pilot was fatally injured and the airplane was destroyed,” the report read. “Visual meteorological conditions prevailed for the local flight, which was not operated on a flight plan.” Peoples crashed in an open field behind the SuperTarget in Highlands Ranch near C-470 and Lucent Boulevard shortly before 3 p.m. on March 29. Some witnesses said

it looked like the pilot was trying to avoid surrounding homes and buildings before the plane made impact. “That pilot did save lives. He consciously took himself away from people, and he’s nothing short of a hero, in my opinion,” Highlands Ranch resident Landon Harmon said. “There’s not a lot of fields in Highlands Ranch, so I’m pretty confident he knew what he was doing.” Peoples purchased the airplane in November 2013 and his first flight in the aircraft occurred the morning of the fatal crash, the NTSB said. He told a family member that he terminated the first flight early because of a leak in the fuel sight gauge and took off for the second flight, which resulted in the accident, after making a repair to the plane. Witnesses told NTSB investigators that Peoples looked like he was struggling to stay in flight and the engine was “running roughly” as the plane approached the field. The plane crossed over a set of power lines, rolled to the left and descended to the ground before a fire ensued after impact, the report said. “It’s hard to say when the investigation will end, but on average, they come in right around 12 months,” NTSB spokesman Peter Knudson said.

Brackney bids farewell to chamber Dozens turn out for former chamber president’s presentation By Chris Rotar crotar@coloradocommunitymedia.com As president of the South Metro Denver Chamber of Commerce for 10 years, John Brackney wore many hats — literally and figuratively. During a farewell speech of sorts, four days after announcing his resignation, Brackney used all manner of headwear to tell the story of what the chamber has meant to him. Centennial Mayor Cathy Noon and Littleton Mayor Phil Cernanec were among the dozens of public officials and chamber members gathered for the March 28 event at the chamber’s headquarters in Centennial. Brackney did not discuss why he suddenly resigned March 24, nor did he talk about what his plans are. Neither was there any talk of the process for finding a replacement. This day was really about chamber members taking their hats off to Brackney.

John Brackney used hats, including the one he is wearing here that he said represents “fun,” to make a variety of points during the “Farewell President’s Leadership Forum” at the South Metro Denver Chamber of Commerce in Centennial on March 28. Brackney resigned as president and CEO of the chamber four days earlier. Photo by Chris Rotar “If you’ve had a great leader, that leader has left you in dramatically better shape than when he came,” said Rick Whipple,

CEO of WhippleWood CPAs and the chairman-elect of the chamber’s board of directors.

Easter Worship S E R V I C E S

“He has left the chamber in great shape.” The presentation began with Brackney unloading two large bags of hats, a motley assortment he had accumulated over the years, on a pair of tables. Over the next hour, he would wear them all. There was the multicolored hat that he said represents fun. There was the baseball cap with the City of Centennial’s logo — a symbol that came to be after much hard work by Brackney and other chamber members helped secure the city’s incorporation in 2001. There was a hat with dreadlocks spilling out, one the former Arapahoe County Commissioner said represents diversity. “We should respect diversity,” Brackney said. “All these hats stand for different cultures and backgrounds.” Brackney shared symbolism in each hat. Some more examples: • A cowboy hat: “We’re straight shooters.” • A hard hat: “Please build something at the chamber.” • A winter cap: “When’s it’s cold, put on a hat and keep going.” • Swimming goggles: “Sometimes we don’t want to wear a hat.”

An Asian cobra stirs inside an enclosure at the ‘Reptiles: The Beautiful & The Deadly’ exhibit at The Wildlife Experience April 3. Asian cobras, which live in Indonesia, lack melanin, giving them whitishyellow coloring.

For the last two months, The Wildlife Experience has been home to 19 varieties of live turtles, crocodilians, lizards and snakes from around the world. The exhibit explores common myths and fosters a basic understanding of how reptiles fit into the history of life and the fabric of native environments. The exhibit, which ended April 6, was produced and toured by Clyde Peeling’s Reptiland. Rachel Rathmell, a caretaker for Clyde Peelings Reptiland, holds “Rico Suave,” a bearded dragon that stars in “Reptiles: The Beautiful & The Deadly” at The Wildlife Experience.

Lone Tree audience the Twain shall meet ‘Big River’ brings American classic novel to local stage By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@coloradocommunitymedia.com “Big River: The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” will bring Mark Twain’s American classic novel to the stage at Lone Tree Arts Center from April 24 to May 4. The musical, with book by William Hauptman, music and lyrics by Roger Miller, celebrates a tale that is part of our national fabric. With the recent publication of Mark Twain’s two-volume autobiography, there is renewed appreciation for this author who was known around the world in his day. This year marks the 130th anniversary of Twain’s coming-of-age story of a rebellious teenager. Director Randal Myler will stage this production with music direction by Dan Wheetman and choreography by Candy Brown. The two directors, who have staged a number of musical productions at the Denver Center Theatre in the past, brought

The original production of “Big River” was in 1985-87 in New York, followed by a uniquely cast revival with deaf and hard-of-hearing actors in 2003. The story follows Huck as he tires of being told how to behave and runs away down the river with runaway slave Jim, developing an unusual friendship as they interact with assorted characters en route. Myler’s version incorporates a storytelling troupe traveling down the river, a ragtag group playing multiple musical instruments as they stop and share stories. Mack Shirilla leads the cast as Huck, in a role he recently played in Dallas, while

Outlets host huge student art show Castle Rock event highlights works of 2,000-plus kids and teachers By Jane Reuter

jreuter@coloradocommunitymedia.com The artwork of more than 2,000 Douglas County School District students and teachers is featured in the DCSD Art Show at the Outlets at Castle Rock. The pieces will be on display from April 10-13. An artist’s reception is from 5 to 8 p.m. April 11. The annual show traditionally was held at Park Meadows shopping center, but show coordinator Pamela Cogburn said the outlet center offered a larger space. “At Park Meadows, the space was smaller so we had to run each level — elementary, middle, then high — for four weeks,” said Cogburn, an art teacher at Castle Rock’s Renaissance Expeditionary School. “This time, they’re all going to be together. Because of all the schools in Douglas County, that also means it’s going to be a huge show.” Located in the parking lot in front of the Levi’s store and open for viewing during store hours, the show will represent work from k-12 students.

“I’m a little nervous since it’s something we really haven’t done to this scale before,” said Rocky Heights Middle School art teacher Kim Chlumsky. But her excitement about her students’ work overcomes any trepidation. “I don’t want all my students to have the same project, so I usually give them a theme or a question for the project,” she said. “Just letting them go and have that freedom, you get a lot of amazing results.” Among those results is a digital artwork piece created with Photoshop by eighthgrader Karin Yi. The piece depicts a crowd of figures on which random words are written. One figure among them is emblazoned with the words “This is me, different, originality, individual.” A large question mark hovers above the gathering. Yi said the figure doesn’t represent her specifically. “It represents individuality, people who basically break apart from all the crowds, from all the normal people who are afraid to stand up and speak out,” she said. “The question mark represents doubt and not knowing who you are and where you stand.” Yi doesn’t intend to pursue a career in art, but enjoys the process. “I’ve been in the district art show before, and I love it,” she said. The Rocky Mountain School of Art and Design also will award a $20,000 Community Scholarship to a 2014 Douglas County graduate.

The Castle Rock Chamber of Commerce honors Hier Drilling Company as our March Business of the Month recipient. Hier Drilling has been a member of the Castle Rock Chamber for more than 40 years, making them our longest standing members! Hier Drilling Co has been in business since October 1973, continuing the tradition of Hier & Price Drilling, started in 1944 by Archie Hier and Art Price. The company split in 1972-1973, when the pump service was sold to Ralph Norden, JA Price took on the deep industrial type work, and Hier Drilling has been doing the domestic work here in Douglas County ever since. In 1973, George Hier moved from the field into the office. subsequently, Bruce & Robbie Hier Person worked for the company starting in the 1980's, and upon George's retirement, took ownership of the company, beginning the 3rd generation of family ownership. In 2008, Hier Drilling purchased Norden Pump Service, bringing that part of the water well industry back into the company structure. So now they are a full service drilling, installation and service company serving Douglas, Elbert, Arapahoe, and portions of El Paso, Jefferson, Adams, Park, Weld, and Denver counties. They pride themselves in being able to help people in the drilling process, from permitting through the completion of the well/pump system, and have multiple service crews to try to get you back in water as soon as possible.

LWV could be in for changes Nonpartisan group has notable history By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@coloradocommunitymedia.com Since 1919, League of Women Voters members have been meeting to discuss the many aspects of local, state and national government: legislation, ballot issues and background information a voter needs to make wise decisions. The nonpartisan organization “influences public policy through education and advocacy,” according to the mission statement. In the immediate future, campaign finance takes the spotlight for the Arapahoe County LWV: On April 30 at 6:30 p.m., the film “Big Sky, Big Money” will be shown at Koelbel Library, 5955 S. Holly St., Centennial, followed by a May 7 public meeting at 6:30 at Koelbel entitled “Money and Politics: Who Owns Democracy?” Attorney Chantelle Taylor, who has extensive experience in campaign finance and political law, will be the featured speaker. Both are

open to the public. We received a history of the longstanding local organization, compiled in 1969 by the late Wilma Davidson, which explains structure and history. Arapahoe was Colorado’s first of 17 counties organized by the territorial government in 1861. It originally included almost half of what is now the state. By 1902, it was divided into Adams, Washington, Yuma and Arapahoe, and Littleton became the Arapahoe County seat. Colorado women had the right to vote in 1893, well before national suffrage was approved in 1920. In 1919 a new organization was founded, called the League of Women Voters, and the state group was called Colorado Women Citizens League. The first local leagues were recognized in 1931 and there were seven by 1950. Elements of the Arapahoe County LWV started in 1950 with a Cherry Hills local League, with Mrs. E.D. Gumm as president. It grew to 57 by 1952, when it studied the Cherry Creek School District, community betterment and county and community orientation.

if you join New members are invited to join the League of Women Voters. Any person of voting age is eligible. Memberships cost $60 per individual, $85 for households and $25 for students. Contact Jo Ann Feder, 904-608-3982, joluvs10s@ gmail.com. In 1954, LWV of Englewood formed with 18 charter members, recognized by the state organization in 1955. Anita Ausfal was first president. The provisional Littleton LWV had 22 charter members when it was organized in 1956, with Dorothy Lowrie as first president. By 1958, it was a full-fledged league and grew to 162 members in 11 years. An Aurora League was organized in 1954. The four leagues worked together on appropriate issues and in 1969 merged into the League of Women Voters of Arapahoe County. Sally Parsons of Littleton was first president. More and more members went to work full time and membership dropped off. As the ACLWV, which has about 80

members at this time, heads into election season, members will address some organizational changes: On April 24 from 6 to 9 p.m., there will be a meeting to discuss the formation of an Aurora Unit at the Smoky Hill Library, 5430 Biscay Circle, Centennial. At a recent new member meeting, there was a request for a unit that would meet east of Interstate 25. A second meeting is scheduled for May 15. (Contact: Charlotte Faris, faris18603@ comcast.net, 303-690-8466.) At the June 7 annual meeting, discussion will continue about extending the boundaries to include Douglas County, where there are presently about 15 members. Some of them have been working with membership chairman Jo Ann Feder on the requirements of state and national leagues to make this extension and name change a reality. Members will receive information in May about the expansion and will discuss in June. Volunteers started a voter registration drive at Arapahoe Community College on April 3 and will continue this important activity.

No foolin’: Game ends in tie Neither Littleton nor Castle View score in league soccer contest By Tom Munds

tmunds@coloradocommunitymedia.com Near misses on offense coupled with wall-like play on defense resulted in Littleton and Castle View battling to a scoreless tie in double overtime in the April 1 Continental League girls soccer game at Littleton Public Schools Stadium. “It was a frustrating game for us because we didn’t do what we usually do,” Castle View Coach Perry Gantz said after the game. “We didn’t control the ball and we didn’t use our speed. We just kicked the ball around, so we ended with a 0-0 tie.” Littleton Coach Terry Banfield said the match didn’t end like he wished but added that it was an exciting game. “We got off to a good start this season but have been having a tough time against very tough league competition,” he said. “We hoped to get something out of this game knowing we were facing a very good soccer team. We didn’t get a win but we’ll take the tie because it came with the valuable experience of playing against a very talented soccer team.” The tie was the first non-win on the Castle View record as it was 3-0-1 overall and 1-0-1 in league after the game. The scoreless time meant Littleton’s record stood at 3-2-1 overall and 0-2-1 in league. The contest also signaled the beginning of the heart of the league season for both teams. The Sabercats slipped to 3-1-1 and 1-1-1 with a 4-3 loss to Regis on April 4 and were scheduled to play Legend on April 8.

Castle View’s Ashlyn Prendergast (5) takes control of a loose ball during the Sabercats’ April 1 game against Littleton. Prendergast put several shots on goal but none made it in as the game ended in a scoreless tie.

Littleton was scheduled to play Heritage on April 8. The Lions are at Shea Stadium against Rock Canyon on April 10 and return to Littleton Public School Stadium

April 15 for a game against Mountain Vista. The opening minutes of the April 1 game set the tone of the 80 minutes of regulation time and the two 10-minute overtime periods. Littleton pressed the attack. Castle View’s defense turned the attack aside, won the battle for possession of the ball so the Sabercats could mount an attack of their own. The high-speed, back-and-forth action continued throughout the contest. Both teams put a number of shots on goal but Soccer continues on Page 27

JP Beach is a determined swimmer this spring after watching the Class 5A state swimming championships a year ago. Beach, a senior at Douglas County High School, was ninth in the 50 freestyle as a sophomore at the Colorado State swimming championships. He was 11th in the 100 freestyle in 2012 and was primed for a podium finish last spring. However, after collapsing in the locker room a few days before the state meet, he was relegated to being a student assistant coach for the Castle View swim team (comprised of both CVHS and Douglas County students) at the state meet. “Last year, three days before state I passed out and hit the corner of a bench, knocked five teeth out of my jaw and I broke my jaw and broke my nose,” recalled Beach. “I had 28 stitches. I was ineligible to swim. “It was because of overtraining mostly. I got the stomach flu and I didn’t know it. I was in the bathroom before practice and I got really dehydrated. I didn’t know what was going on. I passed out, got up and I needed to go to my coach and say, `hey, I’m not feeling well.’ I blacked out and from then on I didn’t remember.” Beach hasn’t overdone his preparation this season. “I’ve learned,” said Beach. “Overtraining is a big deal. You can’t really shake it off. There’s a certain point where you can see that you can over train. At that point, you have to take a step back and reevalu-

Photo by Jim Benton ate your training.” Beach, a 6-foot-5 sprinter who has accepted a scholarship to swim at the University of Arizona, has recorded the fastest times in the state this season in the 50 and 100 freestyle events according to statistics compiled on cohsswimanddive.blogspot.com. In the 50, Beach touched up in 20.96 seconds at the Lightning Invite and his 46.23 in the 100 during the same meet is also the quickest chronicled this spring. In addition, he has the team’s fastest times in the 100 butterfly, 100 breaststroke and as the anchor swimmer on the 400 and 200 freestyle relay teams. He has also swum on the 200 medley relay foursome. “So far it’s gone pretty well,” said Beach. “I’ve had a few injuries that have set me back but so far I’ve recovered Beach continues on Page 27

pretty quickly. Nothing too big, nothing too serious. I’m training with my club team (Denver Swim Academy) right now and swimming for my high school.” Castle View/Douglas County coach Tim Byers claims Beach is one of Colorado’s top swimmers. “JP has been a top sprinter in Colorado probably for the past three years,” said Byers. “He’s a special kid. He’s more dedicated to swimming. The last two seasons he’s emerged in national events. “He swims everything but sprints are the events he’s most competitive in. He holds every record on our team. He is progressing as a well-rounded swimmer. He’s a competitive racer. He hits the water and it’s `go.’” Beach has set lofty goals for this season. “I always look forward to the high school season,” confessed Beach. “Most of

not into the net. Some shots sailed high and a couple hit the crossbar. When shots were on target, Castle View’s goalkeeper Danielle Williams and Littleton’s goalie Shayna Watkins each made leaping deflections and diving saves to preserve the scoreless tie. As he assessed the remainder of the season, Banfield said the Littleton team is a mix of veterans and players from the junior varsity. “We graduated eight, had a player move and another is hurt so we had 10 spots to fill on our roster,” he said. “I feel our team strength is our defense and our center midfield. Shayna is strong in goal for us. She is a year-round soccer goalie and the third year as our starting goalie.” The Lions have spread scoring around so far this season with eight different players credited with putting the ball into the net. Abby Newby has a pair of goals to lead the team in that category while

teammate Julie Stauffer has scored one goal but leads the team in assists with four. Gantz also assessed this year’s team. He said the Sabercats are a young team this season. He noted he had five freshmen on the field at one point in the game against Littleton. “It doesn’t look like it on the scoreboard today but typically our strength is our ability to score goals,” the coach said after the game. “We have good passing skills and good speed to push the ball deep into the opponent’s end of the field.” Team statistics show Julie Macklin as the scoring leader with four goals and four assists while teammate Kim Bourelle has scored a pair of goals and dished off a pair of assists. Gantz noted Williams is playing very well for the Sabercats at goalkeeper. “Danielle was a field player for us and converted to goalie this season,” he said. “She plays an aggressive style that has worked well for us and strengthens our defense.”

sports roundup New coach for Chaparral

Rod Dobbs has been named the new head football coach at Chaparral High school, replacing John Vogt who resigned after seven years at the helm. Dobbs has been the offensive coordinator at Chaparral for the past five seasons. The former all-state player at Denver’s John F. Kennedy High School spent 14 seasons as the offensive line coach and offensive coordinator at the University of Northern Colorado. He played football at UNC and also was a coach at Liberty High School in Colorado Springs. Dobbs is anxious to put Chaparral back the winning side of the ledger. The Wolverines went 4-6 last season but were hit hard by injuries that sidelined players for all or part of the season.

HAVE A SPORTS STORY IDEA?

the time I don’t get to do relays. This is the one time of the year I get to be a part of a team. When you are traveling to nationals and traveling all over the country, I’m on a small group where you can’t do relays. “The season has gone great. I’m looking forward to state and really ending the season strong. My biggest goal is the break the high school state record. ... I really hope to bring in firsts for the 50 and 100 at state.” Being a swimmer with the last name of Beach, JP admits he gets teased a lot and he asks his teammates not to call out his last name during races for a different reason. “I really ask the guys not to yell my name out, my last name at least, when I’m on the blocks,” he said. “When everybody starts yelling it, it doesn’t sound like the right words coming out. “Last year really hurt that I was hurt before state. I really kind of messed up our relays and that was kind of our breakout year. We had our strongest swimmers; our strongest possible year was last year. I couldn’t be a part of that. This year I came in fired up. I’ve set my goals and working hard every day.”

TO: STEPHANIE BENEDICT: You are hereby notified that a petition has been filed which alleges that the above-named child is dependent or neglected based upon the factual allegations and legal definitions of dependency or neglect set forth in the Dependency and Neglect Petition, a copy of which is served simultaneously with this Dependency Summons and additional copies of which may be obtained at the office of John Thirkell, at the above address. A Return of Service and Advisement Hearing has been set for April 21, 2014 at 10:30 a.m. in Division 2, Douglas County District Court, 4000 Justice Way, Castle Rock, Colorado, 80109. Your presence before this court is required to defend against the claims in this petition. IF YOU FAIL TO APPEAR, THE COURT WILL PROCEED IN YOUR ABSENCE, WITHOUT FURTHER NOTICE, TO CONDUCT AN ADJUDICATORY HEARING AND MAY ENTER A JUDGMENT BY DEFAULT THEREBY ADJUDICATING YOUR CHILD AS A DEPENDENT OR NEGLECTED CHILD. You have the right to request a trial by jury at the adjudicatory stage of this petition. You also have the right to legal representation at every stage of the proceedings by counsel of your own choosing, or if you are without sufficient financial means and meet the indigency guidelines established by the Colorado Supreme Court, appointment of counsel by the Court at state expense. Termination of your parent-child legal relationship to free your child for adoption is a possible remedy in this proceeding. If that remedy is pursued, you are entitled to a hearing before a Judge. You also have the right, if you are indigent, to have the Court appoint, at no expense to you, one expert witness of your own choosing at any hearing on the termination of your parent-child relationship. If you are a minor, you have the right to the appointment of a Guardian ad litem to represent your best interests. You have the right to have this matter heard by a district court judge rather than by the magistrate. You may waive that right, and in doing so, you will be bound by the findings and recommendations of the magistrate, subject to review as provided by section 19-1-108(5.5), C.R.S. 2013, and subsequently, to the right of appeal as provided by Colorado Appellate Rule 3.4. Rule 4.2 of the Colorado Rules of Juvenile Procedure provides for the following advisement about dependency and neglect cases: (a) At the first appearance before the court, the respondent(s) shall be fully advised by the court as to all rights and the possible consequences of a finding that a child is dependent or neglected. The court shall make certain that the respondent(s) understand the following: (1) The nature of the allegations contained in the petition; (2) As a party to the proceeding, the right to counsel; (3) That if the respondent(s) is a parent, guardian, or legal custodian, and is indigent, the respondent may be assigned counsel as provided by law. (4) The right to a trial by jury; (5) That any admission to the petition must be voluntary; (6) The general dispositional alternatives available to the court if the petition is sustained, as set forth in Section 19-3-508, C.R.S.; (7) That termination of the parent-child legal relationship is a possible remedy which is available if the petition is sustained; (8) That if a motion to terminate the parent-child legal relationship is filed, the court will set a separate hearing at which the allegations of the motion must be proven by clear and convincing evidence;


(5) That any admission to the petition must be voluntary; (6) The general dispositional alternatives available to the court if the petition is sustained, as set forth in Section 19-3-508, C.R.S.; (7) That termination of the parent-child legal relationship is a possible remedy which is available if the petition is sustained; (8) That if a motion to terminate the parent-child legal relationship is filed, the court will set a separate hearing at which the allegations of the motion must be proven by clear and convincing evidence; (9) That termination of the parent-child legal relationship means that the subject child would be available for adoption; (10) That any party has the right to appeal any final decision made by the court; and (11) That if the petition is admitted, the court is not bound by any promises or representations made by anyone about dispositional alternatives selected by the court. (b) The respondent(s), after being advised, shall admit or deny the allegations of the petition. (c) If a respondent(s) admits the allegations in the petition, the court may accept the admission after making the following finding: (1) That the respondent(s) understand his or her rights, the allegations contained in the petition, and the effect of the admission; (2) That the admission is voluntary. (d) Notwithstanding any provision of this Rule to the contrary, the court may advise a non-appearing respondent(s) pursuant to this Rule in writing and may accept a written admission to the petition if the respondent has affirmed under oath that the respondent(s) understands the advisement and the consequences of the admission, and if, based upon such sworn statement, the court is able to make the findings set forth in part (c) of this Rule.

The proposed project consists of drilling a new well, constructing a new water storage tank, expanding a pump station, and replacing the existing pump, iron and manganese removal system, and pressure reducing valve.

The project will increase the user rates by $38.58 per month.

I’m progrowth, I just want to make sure that we have a vision that matches where we want to be five, 10, 15 years from now.” In the final race of the four, Valentine retained her seat in District 5, accruing 52.9 percent of the vote, while defeating Floyd Bacon (25.7 percent) and Charles Fletcher III (21.4 percent). Valentine, who was not available for comment after the election, said beforehand that she was running for re-election to “continue to make Castle Rock businessfriendly and manage the growth properly.” She stated that her top priority for her second term was to help ensure that long-term water solutions are reached for the town.

and they wanted the choice to make decisions on their own rather than have government make them for them,” she said, adding that “over the next few years we need to make sure we are continuing to focus on renewable water, and finishing up the North Meadows Extension.” In the other four-candidate race, Teal garnered 45 percent of the total vote in District 6, 20 points higher than the second-highest vote-getter, David Hickey. After feeling that his resigning representative and some others on council were “out of touch with the citizens of Castle Rock,” Teal entered the fray and was pleased with how the people in his district “spoke out forcefully” in the April 1 election. “The representation we had, and the direction we were going in, obviously needed to change,” he said. “The town council after this election is far more legitimate. It is much better in touch with the people of Castle Rock, what they want, who they are and how they feel.” Like all others elected — all of whom he backed — Teal is a strong supporter of the Second Amendment. He said his top priorities for the next two years include: ensuring no housing development happens on what is currently the Plum Creek Golf Course; seeing that rights and liberties of citizens are protected; and beginning the process of examining whether an interchange is needed at Interstate 25 and Crystal Valley Ranch Parkway. Ford, who won the closest race of the four, defeated Brooks by a percentage margin of 54.9-45.1. He attributed the closeness of the race to “the strength of” his opponent. “I have great respect for him,” Ford said. “He is committed to the well-being of the Town of Castle Rock and he is going to continue to serve the community (on the utility commission and water board). I look forward to working with him and getting to know him a little bit better than I did before

WE ARE NEW TOWN BUILDERS. R

7 Days a Week No Appointment Necessary!

We’re inspired by classic Colorado architecture and passionate about craŌsmanship. Yet we geek out on the latest technology and building techniques. The thicker walls in our high performance homes allow for 60% more money-saving insulaƟon than in a convenƟonal home, and our roof is 6 inches higher than a typical home, so we get 2½ Ɵmes MORE insulaƟon in the aƫc. This reduces heat loss, and more importantly, reduces your energy bill!
