Ducks make waves for Rotary Thousands of yellow, rubber birds head on down the creek By Mike DiFerdinando

mdiferdinando @coloradocommunitymedia.com Thousands of Douglas County’s finest rubber ducks raced down East Plum Creek during the 2014 Ducky Derby June 7 in Castle Rock. The Ducky Derby is an annual fundraiser sponsored by the Rotary Club of Castle Rock, Castle Rock High Noon Rotary and the Rotary Club of Castle Pines. Each donation earned a competitor a numbered ticket and a marked “rubber ducky” to enter into the derby. This year’s race was moved up from 3 p.m. to 2:30 in

Pink Lightning ride raises awareness Castle Rock teen sets off on 1,065-mile ride to benefit Children’s Hospital Colorado

Glitches revealed in the Douglas County School District’s emergency communications during the Arapahoe High School shooting prompted a dramatic reworking of the system. With the new SchoolMessenger system, the time it takes to send texts is 34 times faster than with the previous system. Emails are moving at 26 times the speed they did with the previous system, and voicemail is reaching its destination in half the time, DCSD’s internal communications officer Randy Barber told the board of education during its June 3 meeting. “We did test our website, Facebook and Twitter feeds and had good results with those as well,” Barber said. It’s a huge improvement from the time required to send emergency communications on Dec. 13, 2013 — the day of a shooting incident at Arapahoe High School in Centennial that left two students dead. That day, DCSD’s system was overwhelmed by heavy traffic. Emails about DCSD’s response that were supposed to reach parents shortly after the incident arrived three or more hours later, eliciting a flood of complaints. Douglas County’s schools were on lockout status after the shooting, which means staff was on heightened alert, perimeter doors were locked, and visitors were required to use the main entrances and show identification before entering the buildings. “We had delivery failure during the Arapahoe shooting,” said Barber, calling the situation unacceptable. “Obviously, this was a very poignant moment in which we had sent messaging to all of our

mdiferdinando @coloradocommunitymedia.com On June 7, 15-year-old Bryan Warnecke of Castle Rock began a 1,065 bicycle tour to benefit Children’s Hospital Colorado. Bryan has cystic fibrosis, a hereditary disorder that primarily impacts the respiratory system and exocrine glands. It causes the production of abnormally thick mucus, leading to the blockage of the pancreatic ducts, intestines, and bronchi and often resulting in respiratory infection. Inspired by his participation in last year’s Courage Classic bike ride, in which he was the top individual fundraiser raising more than $70,000, Bryan, with the support of his father Pink continues on Page 15

Council gives initial OK to ballot language Amendment would require vote for future changes to gun laws By Mike DiFerdinando

mdiferdinando @coloradocommunitymedia.com The Castle Rock Town Council approved the first reading of ballot language for a potential amendment to the town charter that would require a vote to change gun laws in the future. At the June 3 meeting, the council approved the following potential ballot question: “Any restriction or limitation on the right of citizens to keep and bear firearms enacted by the Town Council shall require the approval of the registered electors as a referred measure under Section 15-4 of this charter. This Section shall govern and control over Articles II and VII or any other conflicting provision of this Charter. This section shall not apply to Town Council action which makes unlawful the discharge or brandishing of firearms. Yes or no?” Since the charter amendment question

might share a ballot in August with the question that addresses the issue of the open carry of firearms in municipal-owned buildings and town parks, Town Attorney Robert Slentz suggested the addition of language to the charter amendment that would stipulate that it only applies to action taken after the election. As part of the motion, the council voted to add language to the proposed amendment stating that the “section shall apply only to council action taken after its adoption.” This would avoid a possible conflict if the outcome of the two votes contradicted each other. “In my opinion, there is no conflict if you apply that qualifying language,” Slentz said. A special election is set for Aug. 19.The ballot question for that election will read as follows: “Shall Town Council ordinance 2014-03 be approved which ordinance revokes the authority of the Town manager under the municipal code to prohibit the open carrying of firearms within municipal buildings, parks, recreation areas and other municipal properties owned or operated by the town of Castle Rock? Yes or No?” A “no” vote would restore the town man-

ager’s authority to ban the open carry of guns on town property. The ballot question for a charter amendment would need final approval at the next council meeting on June 17 in order to meet the legal stipulations and time requirements to be on the Aug.19 ballot. The charter amendment question does not have to be voted on in August and a separate special election could be held to vote on it at any time. The possibility of a November election was also discussed. There currently is no town election scheduled for November, but there are state, federal and county elections. A November election would allow for cost savings because a coordinated election with the county could be held. Even in November, the cost of a second special election is estimated by the town to cost $25,000 to $50,000. Residents of the town spoke out on both sides of the issue during the meeting, many voicing concerns over using the Aug.19 election for both questions. Others argued that it makes sense to hold both at once because of the potential costs of a second special election. “This is a contentious issue. I think we’ve got strong opinions on this issue on both sides. And council needs to be open to

listening to both sides of that,” Castle Rock Mayor Paul Donahue said. “Just because it’s a contentious issue doesn’t mean that it’s something we just ignore or we let go by. This is a big deal for a lot of people, and I think it’s important the residents of Castle Rock have the opportunity to vote on it. And I think that’s what council is doing at this time. We’re putting it out there for the residents of Castle Rock to make a decision one way or another on this.” Donahue said he favors adding the charter question to the August ballot. “If we don’t do it on the ballot in August there’s going to be an extra cost to it and I think the people of Castle Rock want this done. (They want town council to) focus on the business of the town. That’s what we were elected to do. This is part of the business, but I think it’s time for it to end,” Donahue said. Chip Wilson of District 4 was the lone councilmember to vote against moving forward with the amendment. “The discussions that we’ve had in the past talked about not adding confusion to topic, going with the one question for the most part. I would still strongly feel that one question would be appropriate for this special election, and I’m not in favor of adding anything else,” Wilson said.

Recovery continues for area woman Highlands Ranch mother keeps hope in tomorrow By Hannah Garcia

Special to Colorado Community Media Kristin Hopkins says she only remembers “bits and pieces” of the week she spent cocooned in the ruins of her red Chevrolet Malibu after it careened and crashed off of U.S. 285. Now, the Highlands Ranch mother of four, who lost both feet after the accident, is hopeful she’ll walk again soon with the help of prosthetics and physical therapy. “I was there for six days,” Hopkins said in a phone interview. “I think the total amount of time I was awake was three to four hours when I was conscious. I remember writing on the umbrella. I remember trying to start the car, but I don’t know where I was going to go.” Hopkins crashed her car some time after April 27, two days before her parents reported her missing to the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, off of U.S. 285 near Fairplay. She was discovered by a couple driving by on May 4. In the time she spent trapped and upside down, Hopkins said she also remembered trying to push out her shattered windows with a snow scraper and thinking about picking up her children from school. When she reached for her umbrella, scrawling “Need Dr! Hurt & Bleeding” and “Thirsty and hungry, six days with no food or water,” she called it her

“glory moment.” “I totally thought someone would see my little umbrella,” she said. “When I came to, I was like, `what the heck happened’ and I looked around and realized I was in an accident. I never freaked out, never had a thought like, you know, `this is the end,’ ” Hopkins said. “ `It will be tomorrow.’ I never had a bad thought. `Tomorrow will be the day.’ ” In the days after she was found, Hopkins said she remembers hearing the chatter of nurses and frantically trying to write a message to them, saying she cried when she was first able to communicate with them. Hopkins said she still doesn’t remember why she traveled to Park County in the first place. “I’ve seen neurologists and they’ve told me, `you know, you may never remember.’ The brain is an interesting thing,” Hopkins said. “Half of me would like to know, the other half is OK not knowing.” Hopkins was moved from St. Anthony Hospital in Lakewood, where she has been recovering, to a rehab facility on May 29, something her father Glen Morgan called “a great step in her progress.” “It has been quite exhausting,” Morgan said. “From not knowing where she was and then finding out that she was found, it was quite draining to say the least. (My wife and I) continue to remark to each other how much attitude she has in getting through what she has endured. She is a strong woman and we

Courtesy photo compliment her every chance we get.” Hopkins said her children have been coping well with the accident and the amputation of her feet. She has, too, for that matter. “I keep saying this is my reality. This is me, this is my life now,” she said. “I can curl up and cry, or I can show everyone what I can do. Me crying cannot help and it won’t make my feet grow back.”

Calendar of Events

Ribbon Cutting and Grand Opening Celebration at Land Rover Denver The South Metro Denver Chamber proudly supported the opening celebration of Land Rover Denver last Thursday, May 22nd. The new dealership is the result of the Kuni Automotive Company’s purchase and merger of Land Rover Denver East and Land Rover Highlands Ranch in 2011, and the renovation of the 6160 South Broadway property. Over 100 guests were greeted by the friendly Land Rover Denver staff and offered complimentary valet parking. The celebration kicked off with remarks from Marcia McGilley, interim CEO of the South Metro Denver Chamber. McGilley reflected on the dealership becoming part of the KUNI Automotive family, a great community organization. “The South Metro Denver Chamber is thrilled to welcome Land Rover Denver to our area. They provide a vital product to our adventurous Coloradans,” said McGilley. The Chamber Board of Directors Chair is held by Herm Brocksmith, president/general manager/operating partner of Kuni Honda on Arapahoe. Chamber member and Mayor of Littleton Phil Cernanec also commented on the importance of the Kuni Automotive family’s importance to the state of Colorado. The automotive group currently owns 5 dealerships in Colorado, as well as dealerships in California, Oregon, and Washington.

Joe Eberhardt, president of Jaguar Land Rover North America, and Greg Goodwin, CEO KUNI Automotive, focused their remarks on Anthony Brownlee, president/general manager Land Rover Denver. According to Eberhardt and Goodwin, the new location’s success can be attributed to Brownlee’s leadership and ability to create a positive work environment. The ribbon cutting was followed by a live ice sculpture cutting of the Land Rover logo and refreshments. “It was as classy as the vehicles,” said Peggy Cole, Little City Councilmember and Chamber member. The high profile event was

Hopkins said her goal is to “make my life as normal as possible,” whether that means going back to work or going to school for certification to become a teacher or, a new career she’s considering, a profession in physical therapy. “Am I going to have setbacks? Yes,” she said. “Am I going to just move on and not worry? Yes, I am.”

LYFE Kitchen’s three visionary chefs spent an entire year pursuing the LYFE Kitchen Restaurant taste quest - exploring varieties of herbs, spices and sauces - to develop flavors and find the ingredients that make LYFE’s menu so delicious. “The South Metro Denver Chamber is thrilled to have a health restaurant option for our members and neighbors,” said McGilley. “The food and smoothies were delicious and attendees went back for seconds on every item served.”

POLICE BRIEFS Suspect sought in attempted abduction

The Castle Rock Police department is asking for help as they search for a suspect involved in an attempted abduction of a 21-year-old mother and her baby. The incident happened at about 8 a.m. June 6 at the Pines Apartment Complex, 6200 block of Castlegate Drive, in northwest Castle Rock. According to police, the woman was putting her baby in the backseat of her car when a male suspect came up behind her. The male then allegedly attempted to force the woman inside the car. “The woman braced herself, screamed and then punched the suspect in the face,” states a news release from the town. The suspect then ran through the apartment complex in the general direction of the Outlets at Castle Rock. The suspect is described as a Hispanic male, 5-feet, 5-inches tall and 150 pounds. He has short black hair and brown eyes, and was last seen wearing a black hoodie and light colored blue jeans with grass stains on the knees. The Castle Rock Police asks anyone with information to call 303-663-6100.

All three missing police dogs found

All three highly trained military/police “attack” dogs that were stolen from a private kennel the night of May 30, or morning of May 31, have been found. Three “very valuable,” purebred German shepherds were reported stolen from Gunbil German Shepherds in Larkspur, according to a sheriff’s office news release. It is believed the dogs were taken at some point between 10 p.m. and 5:30 a.m. A homeowner in Palmer Lake located one of the dogs on June 1 inside their garage. The homeowner contacted the Palmer Lake Police Department, and the dog was taken back to the kennel. A second dog was recovered the morning of June 5 after being found in close proximity to the kennel tethered to a fence. That dog was also returned to

the kennel. The third and final dog was found the morning of June 10 in an area near Palmer Divide. No further information is available on his recovery. He was returned to the kennel as well. According to the sheriff’s office, there currently are no suspects in the theft, but police are continuing their investigation. Because of the value of the dogs, whoever took them from the kennel could be facing felony theft charges. Anyone knowing any information on the disappearance of the dogs is asked to please call the DCSO tip line at 303660-7579. The sheriff’s office is thankful to the public for numerous tips that aided in the recovery of the three dogs.

C.O.P.S. Camp to host teens

A police officer’s work involves problem-solving, teamwork and leadership. Teens ages 13 to 17 who are hoping to pursue a career in law enforcement can build these skills and more as they participate in a camp with Castle Rock police this summer, when the department hosts its C.O.P.S. Camp from June 24-27. C.O.P.S. stands for challenge, overcome, persevere and succeed. Activities will include climbing, harness construction, rappelling and rock climbing. Participants will also go on zip-line and rock-climbing field trips. “We want to invest in kids who have their eyes on their future,” Sgt. Sam Varela, who is leading the camp, said in a news release. “We also wanted to find a way we could interact with kids in a positive way.” Registration is now open online at CRgov.com/CopsCamp. The cost is $50. There are just 20 spots available, and they fill up quickly. Castle Rock police officers and members of the regional SWAT team will instruct the camp, which is aimed at building leadership skills in teens and building positive relationships between town police and young adults in the community.

Parker police arrest four alleged online predators during month of May

The Parker Police Department arrested four men during an aggressive, monthlong campaign to rein in alleged online predators. The department’s Internet Crimes Against Children unit arrested Bryon Keith Hoff, 43, Sergio Tomita Gonzalez, 22, and James R. Stewart II, 21, in Aurora, and Jason Michael Tomlinson, 32, was arrested at a truck wash in Commerce City where he is employed. All four cases are separate. Through individual online conversations with an undercover detective, all of the suspects arranged a time and place to meet a 14-year-old child for a sexual encounter, authorities say. They never spoke with a real juvenile, but investigators are searching the suspects’ computer hard drives and Internet history to determine if they tried to meet with underage victims in the past, said Detective Shannon Brukbacher, who leads the Internet Crimes Against

Children unit for the Parker PD. Stewart, an active-duty member of the Air Force, was arrested May 6, and Gonzalez, a restaurant worker, was arrested the following day. Hoff, a liquor store manager, and Tomlinson were taken into custody May 27. All have made initial court appearances. Two additional cases lacked sufficient evidence to pursue charges, and another is under review by the 18th Judicial District Attorney’s Office, Brukbacher said. The Douglas County Pattern Crimes Unit assisted in the cases. The arrests were part of a collaborative statewide enforcement effort known as “Operation Broken Heart” by departments with ICAC units. It focused on the victimization of children at the hands of offenders who possess, manufacture, and distribute child pornography, engage in online enticement of children for sexual purposes, engage in child prostitution, and engage in child sex tourism or travel abroad for the purpose of sexually abusing foreign children.

A shorter wait at the DMV Hickenlooper visits Lakewood to sign Senate bill into law By Clarke Reader

creader@coloradocommunitymedia.com The department of motor vehicles is certainly not the most glamorous place to have a bill signing, but it was the most fitting for the work Gov. John Hickenlooper and others came to do. Hickenlooper, Sen. Pat Steadman (D-Denver), Rep. Cristana Duran (D-Denver) and Rep. Cheri Jerou (R-Evergreen) were joined by Barbara Brohl, executive director of the Department of Revenue, at the Pierce Street DMV on June 5 to sign a bill aimed at reducing DMV wait times. SB14-194, also known as the “Driver’s License Fee Allocations” bill, changes the funding of the DMV in the hopes of creating a 15-minute wait time. Brohl described the bill as a major step forward in the modernization of the DMV, and it will allow for two consecutive on-line driver license renewals, granting the Department of Revenue fee setting authority within defined parameters, and consolidating cash funds to achieve greater administrative efficiency. “Given all that goes on here at the DMV, this is the perfect place to sign this historic bill,” Brohl said during the signing. “The positive impact it will have on how the DMV does business will help all of Colorado.” The DMV received funding to enhance staff coverage during peak hours, expand office hours, provide additional training, and expand online appointment scheduling statewide. This will assist is reaching the Governor’s vision of average 15 minute wait times at Driver’s License offices.

Gov. John Hickenlooper visits the Pierce Street DMV in Lakewood on June 5 to sign a bill aimed at decreasing wait times. Photo by Clarke Reader “This all goes a long way to streamlining and cutting red tape here (at the DMV),” Hickenlooper said. “It will help us comply with the Real ID act as well.” The DMV also received funding for Colorado DRIVES, the DMV’s IT capital construction request. This project will replace both the antiquated title and registration system and the driver’s license system, which will increase efficiency and allow for better communication. “The DMV has been due for a make over for a long time, and we will see some real improvements in the coming

years,” Steadman said. Duran highlighted the importance these changes will have in making it easier to get IDs and for Gerou the bill represented a fitting completion for her time in office. “This is my last bill signing, and it makes sense because this is one of the first problems I saw when I was elected, and now we’ve addressed it,” she said. Brohl added that the process of bringing the wait time to the desired 15 minutes will take time, but people should see some serious reductions in wait time along the way.

Governor vetoes road transparency bill By Vic Vela

vvela@coloradocommunitymedia.com A bill that sought more scrutiny of the teaming of state and privately-backed road projects has failed to make it any further than Gov. John Hickenlooper’s desk. Senate Bill 197 — a bill that would have provided greater oversight and transparency for private-public road construction partnerships — was vetoed by Hickenlooper on June 4. However, some of the bill’s intent survived. The bill — a response to grumblings over the US 36 road project process — would have required any “P3” project that exceeds 35 years to be approved by the Legislature. It also would have required a Colorado Department of Transportation board to hold public meetings throughout any road project process and keep the Legislature and other local elected officials informed along the way. The $425 million, 50-year US 36 project, which will widen the lanes of the highway and incorporate toll lanes, received a great deal of criticism by local residents who felt as though the P3 contract was too secretive and that they were kept out of the loop on key parts of the project. Hickenlooper supports the part of the bill that sought

greater transparency and signed an executive order that requires the state to improve “accountability, transparency and openness” of CDOT P3 projects. But the overall bill, which he said contained “unworkable provisions,” was vetoed. Hickenlooper issued a statement, saying that he took issue with parts of the bill that required legislative go-ahead for projects that exceed 35 years and other features that “inappropriately constrains the business terms of future P3 agreements.” “These constraints on business terms would create a chilling component on future transactions, making investors unlikely or unwilling to bid on Colorado projects due to the increased risks this process would generate,” the governor said. Hickenlooper’s statement was accompanied by a list of 48 persons or local government entities that called on the governor to veto the bill, including many business organizations. Rep. Tracy Kraft-Tharp, D-Arvada, a bill sponsor, said she was disappointed with the governor’s decision, but that the executive order means that her effort did not go for naught. “I hope we can build on the transparency piece so that we can move toward figuring out a way to figure in oversight,” she said. “We’ll work on this again. I don’t think this is a black and white issue.”

Hickenlooper signs ride-sharing regulations Marijuana, water, Jessica’s Law also addressed in final week of decisions By Vic Vela

vvela@coloradocommunitymedia.com The regulation of ride-sharing services and the creation of a first of its kind marijuana banking law highlighted a busy week of deadline decisions on the part of Gov. John Hickenlooper. June 6 was the last day for bills that passed the Legislature this year to become law. Last week, Hickenlooper made decisions on dozens of bills, including the signing of legislation that allows the Public Utilities Commission to regulate ridesharing services by companies such as Uber and Lyft. The transportation network companies allow passengers to book rides through a smartphone application. However, up until the bill’s signing, those companies did not face any of the kinds of regulations that are required for other transportation services, such as taxis. The bill would require businesses like Uber and Lyft to carry liability insurance, conduct background checks on drivers, inspect vehicles and receive permission to operate from the PUC. The bill received bipartisan sponsorship and support from both legislative chambers. “Now that Senate Bill 125 has been signed into law, the necessary safety regulations will be in place and these new, innovative transportation services will have the freedom to expand in Colorado,” said Rep. Libby Szabo, R-Arvada. The governor also took action on the following pieces of legislation last week: • Hickenlooper vetoed Senate Bill 23, which sought to incentivize Western Slope owners of water rights to make water conservation improvements. The governor’s office said Hickenlooper chose to veto the bill “because of unresolved concerns about its potential impact to water rights.”

Hickenlooper expressed concern over “a breakdown in consensus toward the end of the legislative session that divided the water community and, in our view, would make implementation of the policy more difficult.” Rep. KC Becker, D-Boulder, expressed disappointment over the veto through an emailed statement that read, “The governor repeatedly states that our water efforts need to begin with conservation. … He missed a great opportunity to incentivize water conservation by Western Slope water users.” • The governor signed into law a bill that creates a financial system for marijuana businesses. House Bill 1398 allows retail marijuana and hemp businesses to enter into a banking co-operative system that would operate similarly to credit unions. Supporters say the new law is needed to protect shop owners from crime that can occur when dealing in a cash-only business. Because marijuana is considered an illegal drug at the federal level, federal banking rules make it more difficult for retail pot businesses to gain banking services from financial institutions. • Hickenlooper also signed into law a bill that creates stiffer penalties for those who commit child sex crimes. The governor signed House Bill 1260, Colorado’s version of “Jessica’s Law.” The law — which the majority of states have enacted some version of — is named after a 10-year-old girl in Florida who was raped and murdered by a convicted sex offender. The law creates new mandatory minimums for various felony classifications of sex crimes on children. The most severe of those punishments carry with them prison sentences of 24 years to life. For the past two years, Republicans have pursued their own version of a Jessica’s Law bill, which contained a strict, 25-year minimum sentence for each felony case of child sex assault. That bill, as it did last year, failed in the Democratmajority Legislature, in favor of the Democrats’ own version.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife has received several reports of bears in Roxborough Village. Most of these reports involve bears getting into bird feeders and trash, as well as entering open, occupied garages. According to Parks and Wildlife, these calls are a weekly occurrence, with the peak of calls coming on and around trash pickup day. Bears easily become habituated to human-provided food, bird feeders, and trash, and they become bolder in their interactions with people as a result. Parks and Wildlife advises that habituated bears that grow accustomed to humans can pose a public safety risk because the animals are rarely relocated successfully, as they can and will travel hundreds of miles to return to their home areas. These among other factors often lead to the destruction of bears that have been allowed access to human-related food sources. Roxborough Village, like much of Douglas County, is located in ideal bear habitat. CPW expects bears to occupy the habi-

tat surrounding the community. However, if human food sources were minimized, bears would merely move through the area and yet retain their natural instincts for finding wild food with little human conflict or interaction. Citizens should to take an active role in keeping themselves, their neighbors and their property safe. This can be achieved by bear-proofing homes, living responsibly in bear country, and encouraging neighbors to do the same. For the protection of people and bears in the community, CPW encourages citizen to: • Remove all bird feeders from April through November. If you want to attract birds, download the fact sheet “Attracting Birds Not Bears” from wildlife.state.co.us/ bears. • Put trash out only on the morning of pickup. Do not leave trash out overnight. Download the fact sheet “Bearproofing your trash” from wildlife.state.co.us/ bears. • Haze bears away from your property using noisemakers, such as banging pots and pans or blowing an air horn from a safe distance. • Keep garage doors closed when not in use. • Close and lock all ground-level windows and doors to prevent easy access to the home interior.

opinions / yours and ours

Father’s Day gives formality to banality Father’s Day is Sunday, June 15. Or is it? I guess if you need to have someone tell you when to honor your father, then Father’s Day is Sunday, June 15, from midnight to midnight. My father and I had an agreement: No gifts. But I always called. Of course, I called him every weekend for the last 20 years of his life, so Father’s Day wasn’t any different. When I was a kid, I fell in line and gave him Old Spice after-shave in those beautiful little off-white bottles. That ended when I turned 13, and we both decided to discontinue Father’s Day gift-giving. What are you going to give someone who has given you everything? At least we have an artist to thank for Father’s Day. Her name was Sonora Dodd, and she came up with the idea at the YMCA in Spokane, Wash., in 1910. I’m not sure what she was doing in a YMCA. I know you can get yourself clean there, and have a good meal there. Dodd simply wanted to follow the success of Mother’s Day with a day for another family member. She ruled out Uncle’s Day

and Stepsister’s Day. The idea got off to a slow start, with low acceptance, and Dodd went off to the Art Institute in Chicago. She returned to Spokane after graduating and renewed her efforts to raise awareness about her project. It wasn’t until 1966 that it became enacted, by Lyndon Baines Johnson, in a proclamation celebrating fathers. The third Sunday in June was chosen. Dodd lived long enough to see it happen. She died in 1978. My own father was a beauty. I have written about him before. We exchanged unanticipated gifts all of the time.

letters to the editor Editor’s note: The following letters were sent

to Colorado Community Media in response to Douglas County School Board Member Doug Benevento’s comments at the June 3 school board meeting. The letters published here reflect the views of more than two dozen people who sent email messages to CCM on this topic.

School board member’s accusations false I am a former educator, and mother of two Douglas County School District students. Although I was not in attendance at last night’s Douglas County School District board meeting, it was brought to my attention that school board member Doug Benevento verbally attacked and threatened Ms. Reuter regarding her reporting on the DCSD school district. He accused her of false reporting and spreading mistruths. I was shocked and deeply offended by Mr. Benevento’s accusations, as his hypocrisy seems to know no bounds; it is this school board who is misleading the community. As a community member, taxpayer, and parent in Douglas County, I appreciate Ms. Reuter’s integrity and unbiased, honest, unspun reporting of what is really going on here. Tricia Zabelin Highlands Ranch ... I watched a live stream of the DCSD meeting last night where school board member Doug Benevento used his position as an elected official to publically attack Jane Reuter. I wanted to let you know that as a community member who no longer has children in the district and who also does my own research, I find her reporting to be accurate and truly appreciate her willingness to sit through long board meetings in her effort to accurately report. Her efforts should be praised, not condemned and she has my full support. Pat Crowley Lone Tree

... I would like to express my gratitude for the coverage by Jane Reuter in regard to the Douglas County School District. I am a parent of two children in DCSD and have grave concerns for the direction of the district. I am thankful that I can often share her well-researched articles with my neighbors. I had never read much of your paper until the school issues arose. I now open it immediately to see what is happening. I will continue to look for her fair and balanced articles regarding both sides of DCSD happenings. Anne-Marie Lemieux Highlands Ranch ... Jane Reuter was unfairly attacked by members of the Douglas County School Board last night. I am writing to you to express my support and thanks for Jane’s reporting of events concerning the school district. Jane has been one of the few journalists willing to report on both sides of the story while most others only “report” on the information given by the district. Teachers and parents have been silenced or ignored by district leadership and I hope that you continue to support Jane in her efforts and do not allow them to silence her, too. Amy DeValk Highlands Ranch ... I wish to thank Jane Reuter for her accurate reporting of school district events in Douglas County. I am a retired teacher of 40 years of service in the DCSD and am actively involved in many of the events that are the subjects of her reports. She includes quotations from people on both sides of an issue and her reports are timely and informative. Last night at a DCSD school board meeting, Ms. Reuter was publicly criticized for biased reporting and I believe that this accusation is false. Leslie A. Stevenson Highlands Ranch

We had a gift-giving family. But gift-giving was limited or nonexistent on designated holidays, including Christmas. Mom and Dad would check out of a hotel, and the desk clerk would say, “It’s been paid for, by your son,” or “It’s been paid for, by your daughter.” A waiter would come to their table and say, “It’s been paid for, by your son.” Dad went to Home Depot to pay for their new vertical blinds, and was told, “It’s been paid for by your son and your daughter.” I could never have done that in the Old Spice days. It took months to save up enough money to buy a bottle. One time I boarded an airplane in Johnson City, Tenn., and the flight attendant said, “Your father upgraded you to first class.” When it comes to fathers, I was one of the lucky ones. Unfortunately, not every father is like mine. Some fathers abandon, neglect, abuse or molest. Is there anything worse than having an abusive parent? Father’s Day has never been as success-

ful as Mother’s Day, as a day of commerce. Restaurants are packed on Mother’s Day. Insipid greeting cards fly off the shelves. Children promise to dust, or to bring mom breakfast in bed. My father had his hands full — with me. If you have been a reader, you know by now that things bother me. Lots of things. Lots of things started to bother me at an early age. My father never tried to change my behavior. What kind of a miracle is that? He never told me to conform or to believe what he believed. Some fathers think they know exactly what is best. Robert Young didn’t even know what was best. The “Father Knows Best” actor suffered from depression and alcoholism, and he attempted suicide in 1991. Anyway, happy Father’s Day, June 15, 16, 17 and 18. Craig Marshall Smith is an artist, educator and Highlands Ranch resident. He can be reached at craigmarshallsmith@comcast. net.

Earning trust begins with love Have you ever tried to take away a food bowl from an eating dog? If you do not have a relationship with that dog built on love and trust, anyone who has attempted this can surely share their pain and probably even show you the bite scars left behind as a lesson that was probably never forgotten or repeated. As most of you know by now, I typically write this column each week based on a recent event or observation. Well, my above-mentioned reference came from a personal experience with my own dogs yesterday. With the thunderstorms and hailstorms I had gotten delayed and tied up away from home longer than anticipated. So by the time I had arrived home to feed my little guys, they were starving for sure. I filled and placed their bowls into their familiar spots and they hungrily started devouring their food. They were so ravenous that they soon pushed their partially eaten bowls under the counter and were trying to eat with their heads tilted sideways to reach their meals. Without hesitating I leaned over and gently pulled their bowls out from under the counter, they never missed a bite, never growled or snarled, and I could swear I caught a little thankful glance from both puppies as they comfortably continued eating. Now I know many of you reading this have dogs and love them dearly, and you

receive that same love in return with every walk, cuddle, lick, and shared meals and snacks. But I also know many people, myself included, who have made the mistake of petting a dog, taking away food, or moving too fast only to be bitten. I actually had a hungry German shepherd take a bite out of my cheek once as I was eating a cupcake; apparently he liked chocolate cake and vanilla frosting, too, and silly me for not sharing. As I thought about my own dogs, though, I was reminded that earning trust, building trust, and maintaining trust takes time and commitment. I have had my dogs for more than four years and have loved on them and spoiled them just like many of you do with your own pets. And then I thought about it a little deeper — what about my family and friends? Have I

Charter to focus on earning college credit Colorado Early Colleges opening Parker school By Jane Reuter

jreuter@coloradocommunitymedia.com Colorado Early Colleges, a charter high school designed to earn college credits for its students, is opening a campus in Parker. The building near Lincoln Avenue and Parker Road is the third location for the school, launched in Colorado Springs in 2007. A total of 215 students already are enrolled to start classes in Parker on Aug. 12. The school is still accepting applications for its first semester. The free public high school helps its students earn college credits along with their high school diplomas. Early Colleges is aimed at both students who are college-bound and those who might not otherwise have considered col-

lege, offering the opportunity to earn associate degrees and concurrent enrollment credits to use toward higher degrees. “We want every student to be successful and have the opportunity to get as many college credits as they can while they’re still in high school,” said John Etzell, head of school at Colorado Early Colleges’ Douglas County campus. “A lot of high schools are doing concurrent enrollment. While they are branching out into that market, it is our 100 percent focus.” Colorado Early Colleges was founded by Colorado Springs City Council President Keith King, a former state senator. King was moved by what he saw as a lack of post-secondary education options. “Especially for students who may not have thought they were college material,” Etzell said. “If they were ready and wanted to put in the work, he would design a school and system that would allow students to achieve more while they were in high school at zero cost to them.

“The only cost a student has is the responsibility cost. It is hard work.” School leaders first consult with students to determine the right educational track. “If they come in and aren’t sure what they want to do, we’ll sit down and work backwards, (ask them) `What are you interested in?’” Etzell said. “We’ll start from there and work our way back.” Classes are offered both on and off campus. The Douglas County branch has a partnership with Arapahoe Community College for its professors to teach nine college-level classes. It also has agreements with ACC, Red Rocks, Front Range and Pikes Peak community colleges, Metro State and the University of Colorado-Denver that allow its students to attend those schools. Parents receive a $4,200 voucher, a portion of Colorado Early Colleges’ per-pupil state funding, to use toward tuition and books.

Some students earn associates degrees and start work upon graduating from Colorado Early Colleges. For those wishing to attend a four-year college, “This gives them an opportunity to get the first two years (of college) out of the way at zero cost, so they can enter whatever four-year university they’re planning to attend as juniors and get right into their field of study,” Etzell said. “We’ve got students who every year are Ivy League-bound, and students who every year graduate with culinary art degrees and go into the workforce as chefs.” Etzell said the Parker school received a waiver from the Douglas County School District’s exclusive chartering authority, and instead is authorized through the Colorado Charter School Institute. Colorado Early Colleges has about 700 students at its Colorado Springs and Fort Collins campuses. For more information, visit http:// csec914.org/.

School district plans community survey Work underway to determine potential cost By Jane Reuter

jreuter@coloradocommunitymedia.com The Douglas County School District plans to conduct a community survey, the first since 2012, school leaders said during the board of education’s June 3 meeting. A timeline for the next survey isn’t set. Superintendent Elizabeth Fagen said staff will research costs and options for a thirdparty professional survey and return to the board with recommendations in late summer or early fall. Once done annually, a district survey hasn’t been conducted since 2012, when

schools. We had principal reports coming back (that) they were not getting messages. The wheel on our computer is spinning and nothing was going out, or very few messages were going out.” Barber said SchoolMessenger, already used by many other school districts, is time-tested and reliable. DCSD conducted tests of the system in late December, February and May. “Obviously, there is not a lot of time to waste here,” he said. “We wanted to be ready if there was an actual emergency in our schools.” The new system will cost about $15,000 more than the old one, but school officials

DCSD discounted the 6 percent response rate as too small to be statistically valid. Community members in attendance, many of whom repeatedly have requested the return of a survey, applauded the news. Board president Kevin Larsen said the survey will attempt to determine if the community understands and supports DCSD’s strategic plan. The plan, introduced in 2011, outlines the district’s roadmap for reforming education, including its choice programming, world-class education initiatives and system performance tools that allow DCSD to measure the results of its initiatives. “I think it’s a great idea, too,” Fagen said, noting DCSD is about to release an updated version of the strategic plan. “I think it’s a great time to go out and gather feedback.” To avoid the low response rate gener-

said the added expense is warranted. “Although SchoolMessenger brings a slight increase in cost to the district, the efficiency and effectiveness gained regarding emergency communications is well worth it to ensure timely notifications to parents and staff,” reads an email from DCSD public information office Paula Hans. Total cost for the SchoolMessenger service during the 2014-15 academic year will be about $90,000. That reflects a DCSDnegotiated reduction in cost from $2.50 per student to $1.27 per student. In 2013-14, DCSD paid about $74,500 for the previous service, Shoutpoint. Shoutpoint provided emergency communications as part of DCSD’s Infinite Campus system. Though SchoolMessenger replaces Shoutpoint, Infinite Campus still will be used to track attendance and school records.

ated during the 2012 survey, Fagen said, “We’d really like to work through a third party that does this professionally to make sure we do get appropriate response rates (and) sample sizes, and that we use strategies beyond sending around email links. Those haven’t proven to necessarily be the best and most reliable strategies.” That could mean the survey will be conducted in a variety of ways, including doorto-door and over the phone. Questions posed in the survey must be “sound and give us the data we’re looking for,” Fagen said, “not vague and don’t tell us the information behind the response.” “We’d want to have some robust dialogue about what those questions would be,” Larsen said. Some parents, who believe the surveys are needed to gauge community satisfac-

tion with the district’s policies and direction, requested the survey’s return during the March 3 Board Unplugged meeting; Larsen said then he would address that request. While not specific to K-12 education, a 2014 county-sponsored survey showed a decline in positive impressions of Douglas County as a place with good schools and educational opportunities. The 2012 district survey, taken by nearly 5,000 parents, showed general satisfaction with their children’s education. But more than 50 percent gave unfavorable ratings to the voucher program, 48 percent questioned whether the district was wisely allocating resources, and 39 percent responded “unfavorable” when asked if the district was headed in the right direction.

put in that same level of effort of spoiling and loving on them to earn and build that trust? And yes, loving on them to build that trust could include some “tough love” to avoid one-sided love or one-sided commitments. I am reminded of the old question, “How often should we tell our spouse we love them?” Many people try and answer this in several ways, “Every day,” “As often as you can,” “Ten times a day,” and other very close guesses. The real answer is this, “Before someone else does!” Well what about our other family members and close friends, how often should we tell them we love them? How about our customers, how often should we tell them we love them? And what about our employees and even employers, would it make sense to ask ourselves how often we should tell them we love them? And the answer to all of the

above is, “Before someone else does.” There are many ways to earn, build and maintain trust, like consistent and honest communication, respect, gratitude and appreciation, and so many more. And there are certainly too many more to cover in one brief column. But love, mutual love, demonstration of love, unconditional love, appreciation of love, and pure love would be an awesome place to start as we look to earn, build and maintain trust. It will also provide us with some protection from small bites and big bites, as we may have to move that proverbial bowl of food from time to time from someone very close to us, whether they are the four-legged kind or human. I would love to hear your “tail” or “tale” of love and trust at gotonorton@gmail. com. And as we fill our days with both, it really will be a better than good week.

republican gubernatorial candidates

Kopp hopes vision pays off with voters

Beauprez comes back for second chance

By Vic Vela

By Vic Vela

vvela@coloradocommunitymedia.com It makes sense for a guy with the least amount of name recognition among a crowded field of Republican candidates for governor to spend time with Coloradans whom he believes have been considered an afterthought. Recently, Mike Kopp kicked off a six-day bike tour called “We are Colorado.” The tour covered 436 miles across the state and focused on places that aren’t called Denver or Boulder. Rather, Kopp rode around and talked to folks in places like Lamar and Holly. “It’s a reflection of the fact that so many people around the state feel like they’re forgotten,” Kopp, a resi- Kopp dent of the Golden area, said in a recent interview. “It’s the elites in the city, and in Washington and on the East Coast, who make the decisions for them, and they’re the ones left picking up the pieces for big government decisions.” Kopp believes that Democratic-led policies — particularly gun-control legislation and renewable energy mandates on rural electric cooperatives — have angered those who live in lightly populated parts of the state. “The sentiment out there is largely that you’ve got a party in Denver and the Democrats seem to pay more heed to Barack Obama and Michael Bloomberg as opposed to the values of our own state,” Kopp said. Kopp believes his message will resonate with Republican voters, who on June 24 will select their preferred candidate to match up

against Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper this fall. Kopp is a former state Senate minority leader, having represented Senate District 22 from 2007 through 2011, when he resigned after his wife, Kimberly, died of cancer. He has since remarried. Prior to holding office, Kopp served in the Gulf War as an Army Ranger. In April, Republican state assembly-goers gave Kopp the top line on the GOP primary ballot. That surprised many political observers, seeing as how Kopp’s name isn’t as well-known as his three opponents: Tom Tancredo, Bob Beauprez and Scott Gessler. But name recognition doesn’t matter to Kopp. “I’d certainly put my record up against any of my opponents in this race in that regard,” he said. Kopp is a “firm believer” in hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking,” saying that the ownership of mineral resources is “a sacred right.” “So we now have a bunch of ballot initiatives out there that would make it more difficult, if not impossible, for energy producers to get this property that they own,” Kopp said. On education issues, Kopp, who served on the state Senate Education Committee, said that students are not being tested properly. He said that assessment tests miss the point when they evaluate the results after the school year, after the student has already moved on to the next grade. Kopp said it would be better practice to provide teachers Kopp continues on Page 14

`Honey badger’ fights for nomination

Tancredo proud that he’s not right in step

By Vic Vela

By Vic Vela

vvela@coloradocommunitymedia.com Scott Gessler is proud to be nicknamed after a ferocious weasel. A few years ago, Democrats started calling the Republican secretary of state the “honey badger,” stemming from a viral YouTube video about the tenacious African mammal. The video’s narrator says that the honey badger always gets what it wants and “has no regard for any other animal, whatsoever.” Gessler — a Denver resident who is often at odds with Gov. John Hickenlooper and other Democratic officeholders — wears the honey badger moniker as a badge Gessler of honor. “Because I stand up on principle and people aren’t used to seeing that,” Gessler said in a recent interview. Gessler hopes that Republican primary voters will reward his work as secretary of state and his fighting personality when they head to the polls to select their

nominee for governor on June 24. And he believes he’s the right candidate for Republicans to put up against the incumbent Hickenlooper. “Look at Hickenlooper,” Gessler said. “He says he’s a moderate, that’s what he claims. And yet he signs the most liberal agenda in the history of Colorado.” Democrats see Gessler as an easy target for attacks in a general election, mainly over his ethics concerns. Last year, the Colorado Independent Ethics Commission found that Gessler violated state rules for spending about $2,000 of state money for attending a Republican event in Florida. “The ethics commission is fundamentally corrupt,” said Gessler, dismissing the claims against him. Gessler believes that the commission is made up of Hickenlooper-friendly appointees who pick on Republicans while going easy on Democrats. Gessler continues on Page 14

GOP COmmiSSiOner CandidateS

Weaver runs on fiscal responsibility Strain touts his county experience Sheriff hopes to stay involved in government By Chris Michlewicz

cmichlewicz @coloradocommunitymedia.com Dave Weaver, who has served as Douglas County sheriff since 2005, has worked in law enforcement for 32 years. According to his campaign website, he “excelled at the DCSO by systematically being promoted through the ranks” and has served in all positions of administration and operations. Weaver, of Parker, has been involved in more than 20 organizations and boards and received numerous awards. He graduated from the Leadership Program of the Rockies, Southwest Command School Weaver and Leadership Douglas County and was an honor graduate of the FBI Academy. Weaver also served on the Denver Regional Council of Governments. Throughout all of his professional and political endeavors, Weaver says he has made safety, security and fiscal responsibility a top priority. With the primary election scheduled for June 24, Colorado Community Media asked three identical questions of the two Republican candidates for District 1 Douglas County commissioner. Q: Why are you seeking this office? A: I love serving our community. I have a clear vision to protect citizens’ rights and bring a unique skill set and level of expertise. I have in-depth knowledge of our county’s issues because I have driven every road for over 32 years. I understand what makes a community thrive. One of my pri-

orities is to find renewable and affordable water by partnering with local and regional providers. I also want to focus on reducing traffic congestion and emergency management needs. Q: What makes you the best person for the job? I am an experienced, effective, honest and professional leader. Currently, I successfully lead over 700 employees and volunteers on a daily basis and manage, with fiscal prudence, a $50 million budget. The quality of life of our citizens is of vital importance and I believe in serving the best interests of our community. My vision is to preserve the beauty of our urban, rural and agricultural communities with a laser-beam focus on protecting the quality of our lives. Q: What do you believe is the most important issue in the eyes of the people you would serve if elected, and how would you approach this issue? A: Water, our economy and our safety. I will work to find solutions for affordable and renewable water for long-term growth and prosperity. I will strive to keep government in check and will work towards reducing the intrusion of government in our lives whenever possible. I also will do everything I can to prevent over-taxation of our citizens. I commit to focus on these issues that affect the safety and welfare of Douglas County. Your commissioners should work together to ensure our county is safe and prosperous for future generations, and I’m uniquely qualified and have a strong desire to make this happen. To learn more about Weaver’s viewpoints, visit www.DaveWeaver4Commissioner. com.

Montano Continued from Page 11

for the job? A: I am the candidate with the highest level of education and most experience in Colorado. I will bring my professional relationships developed in Colorado over the past 20 years. I have earned the professional respect and credibility among my colleagues. I’ve received endorsements from leaders that work with the coroner’s office daily, including District Attorney George Brauchler and Republican sheriff sandidate Tony Spurlock. They recognize I can provide the office with the leadership needed. Q: What do you believe is the most important issue in the eyes of the people you would serve if elected, and how would you approach this issue?

Romann Continued from Page 11

County deserves. Q: What makes you the best person for the job? A: I have 23 years of experience as a medico-legal death investigator and management experience, including in our Douglas County Coroner’s Office where I’m chief deputy coroner. I’ve worked smoothly with and trained more than 45 law enforcement agencies, conducted 50,000 death investigations, worked alongside nationally recognized forensic pathologists and assisted with thousands of autopsies. I’m one of only 175 at the highest level of national tested certification. Providing families with answers gives me deep satisfaction. Q: What do you believe is the most important issue in the eyes of the people you would serve if elected, and how would you approach this issue? A: The most important issue is maintaining the high quality of service to our community that is the hallmark of our current coroner’s office. This issue includes qualifications, integrity, experience, and fiscal responsibility. Frankly, it is concerning that my opponent is backed by many of the people who failed to clean house, maintain proper controls and policies, wasted our tax money, and employed people who tarnished Douglas County government’s image and reputation by their actions and crimes. We need to maintain the high standards that the Douglas County coroner’s office has achieved under the current administration where I am second in command.

Longtime eatery owner ready for change By Chris Michlewicz cmichlewicz @coloradocommunitymedia.com Stevan Strain, one of two Republican candidates running for Douglas County commissioner in District 1, has served on various local boards, including the Douglas County Libraries Board of Trustees, the Douglas County Planning Commission and the Douglas County Open Space Advisory Committee. The Parker resident did so to “gain knowledge and an understanding of the challenges that not only face our county but also our cities and communities,” he said. Strain is perhaps best known as Strain the proprietor of the Warhorse Inn, which he sold last year after 30 years in business. Running the downtown Parker restaurant, he said, lent him insight into the desires of the citizens, and further prepared him for an elected position. With the primary election scheduled for June 24, Colorado Community Media asked three identical questions of the two Republican candidates for District 1 Douglas County commissioner. Q: Why are you seeking this office? A: As a boy growing up, my mother worked for 35 years as the county clerk of the smallest county in Alabama. I had the opportunity to observe her bosses, the county commissioners. My conclusion was some were highly effective and intelligent; some were not. I was mystified why coun-

A: The coroner’s office needs new leadership. Douglas County residents desire an experienced leader with expertise in the Colorado coroner system. Residents deserve a coroner who’ll improve professionalism, address employee turnover and direct the office toward national accreditation. Currently, the office is not eligible for accreditation. Douglas County deserves an office that maintains national standards. As your next coroner, the office will be based on professionalism and solid relationships with law enforcement and other county agencies while maintaining fiscal responsibly. With my proven track record in Colorado, I’m the most qualified candidate with leadership abilities necessary to address these issues.

ties didn’t have great candidates. I set out 30 years ago to become one of those great candidates. Q: What makes you the best person for the job? A: The multiplicity of responsibilities to employees, citizens, government and duties that a small businessman has to manage gives that business owner a wide spectrum of knowledge. In addition, the volunteer board service on most of the major boards in the county and community over 30 years has given me a unique skill set. I have an understanding of water, transportation networks, economic development, open space, libraries, cultural centers and county human services. Q: What do you believe is the most important issue in the eyes of the people you would serve if elected, and how would you approach this issue? Our most important issue is renewable, sustainable water for the next 100 years. We have and must continue to protect those homeowner and small business values by being at the table with our many water providers. The county is not a water provider but it can be a team member with those water districts. Currently, the Rueter-Hess Reservoir has 10,000 acre-feet of water in it. At the 12,000 acre-feet milestone, it will equal Cherry Creek Reservoir. The ultimate capacity will be 75,000 acre-feet. Water must not be an inhibitor to the future of Douglas County and its people.

Gessler Continued from Page 12

Gessler’s work as secretary of state has also received criticism. Gessler was accused of disenfranchising minority voters when his office sent letters to some registered voters to show proof of their citizenship. He also wants Colorado to adopt a policy that requires voters to show photo ID. Gessler becomes particularly annoyed when people accuse him of being obsessed with voter fraud, in spite of evidence that it doesn’t occur very often. “I grew up in Chicago, so don’t tell me it’s overblown,” Gessler said. “Yes, I know, in Colorado we are so pure it can never happen here. I’ve got all those arguments. We are just so pure in Colorado. We are superior human beings than anywhere else and nothing wrong can ever happen in Colorado. That’s bull----. That’s bull----. The fact of the matter is we are human beings just like everywhere else and we have a capacity for good and evil just like anyone else.” Gessler took over as secretary of state in 2010 after defeating Democratic incumbent Bernie Buescher. He touts that he is the only Republican running for governor who has won a statewide race. And lately, his electability argument is being backed by money. Gessler has outraised his GOP rivals for two consecutive fundrais-

make it easier for former Congressman Bob Beauprez to defeat Tancredo. Tancredo believes that those fears are misplaced. And his views on illegal immigration haven’t changed, regardless of the fact that Latinos are growing in electoral strength. “A Republican candidate, any Republican candidate, no matter how pro-amnesty or moderate they are on the issue, however you want to describe it, will get about 35 percent of the Hispanic vote. That’s it,” Tancredo said. “It doesn’t change whether it’s John McCain or Tom Tancredo.

ing periods. On the issues, Gessler “understands people’s concerns” over hydraulic fracturing, known as “fracking,” but supports the practice, saying, “if we didn’t have oil and gas in Colorado, we’d be dead in the water.” On education, Gessler would like to see more school districts adopt pay-for-performance models for teachers — a controversial method that has been taken up by the school board in Douglas County. And Gessler would like to see students have more choices in the schools they wish to attend. “When you do have that competition among schools and they have to attract students through excellence, rather than geography, that helps a lot,” he said. Gessler believes that gun-control legislation that was put in place by the Democratic majority last year “is a lot of money and lot of expense for very little benefit.” In true “honey badger” style, Gessler isn’t afraid to take on fellow Republicans. He believes that selecting Tom Tancredo as the GOP nominee would “spell disaster” for the party. And he recently came out with a TV ad that warns voters against picking candidates like Tancredo and Bob Beauprez, who have lost gubernatorial bids in the past. Gessler believes his personality and his tenacity will pay off. “I’m honest about who I am and what I’m about and I explain my principles and I don’t back down,” he said. “I assure you this, that if all those folks who are coming across that southern border were coming in here and voting Republican, there’d be a wall on that southern border 2,500 feet high with broken glass on the top. Because the issue is political. It’s political, but it’s not racial. That’s the thing that’s important. There’s nothing, absolutely nothing about this issue that has anything to do with race. It is geographic and economic.” Tancredo is not a run-of-the-mill Republican - and that’s exactly why he believes he’s the best guy win back the governor’s mansion for his party. “The only reason why I’m doing this is because I think I can win because I am not the typical Republican candidate,” Tancredo said. “If you run a traditional candidate

and students with “real-time information on a child’s academic trajectory,” so adjustments can be made during the school year. Kopp also wants to give school districts more flexibility in deciding how teachers are paid and kept. “There is no grater factor in education than the quality of the teacher and I think it’s critical that our policy reflects an ability to pay excellent teachers more money,” he said. “And we should have the ability to fire teachers that are failing the kids.” Kopp is also highly critical of Hickenlooper’s decision to grant a temporary reprieve for Nathan Dunlap, a death row inmate who killed four people at a Chuck E. Cheese’s restaurant in 1993. “This is just kind of typical of the way the governor tries to handle these sticky issues, by creating a new, gray scale,” Kopp said.

Beauprez Continued from Page 12

ban in 2012. “This isn’t the first time we’ve voted based on emotion and that’s what this is,” he said of communities that have placed moratoriums on the practice. On education, Beauprez, like other Republican candidates, believes that parents should have more choices available as to where they send their kids to school. He also believes that there should be property tax relief for parents who teach their children from home. And, if elected governor, Beauprez said his wife Claudia will head an initiative that would provide books to parents after children are born so they “can read to a child before they get to school.” Beauprez is particularly concerned about reading scores among schoolchildren in Colorado and believes that the education system needs to be reformed. “Do we want to fund education? Sure, everybody does,” he said. “But the problem is, we keep saying it’s for the children yet we keep failing the children. And when is some-

“The governor should have made a decision. I would have set the execution date.” Kopp holds conservative views on many issues, including abortion. He is an unapologetic pro-life Republican. But, while that may work to his advantage in a Republican primary, recent general elections have shown that when reproductive rights are made a key issue in a campaign, Republicans fall short. But Kopp said his message is bigger than just one issue. “It’s funny because the Democrats have had the same sort of playbook year after year,” he said. “It’s something they tried a lot on me in 2006. I made the main theme in my race the idea of fighting Washington, defending freedoms and empowering people. “I have a very high regard for life and embracing life, but the bigger issue is what you offer to our state that helps the greatest amount of people, and that’s what my campaign has been about.” body going to say enough?” Like other Republicans, Beauprez is prodeath penalty and believes that Hickenlooper made a mistake last year by not going forward with the execution of Nathan Dunlap — the man who killed four people at an Aurora Chuck E. Cheese’s restaurant in 1993. Beauprez, coming from a business background, believes that government rules are harming businesses and, if elected, would work “to get anti-business regulations of our books.” Beauprez understands that Democrats have a demographic advantage at the state level. The majority of women and minorities — especially a growing Latino voter base — have rejected Republican policies during recent statewide elections. But Beauprez believes such loyalty “hasn’t paid off.” “And I’m looking forward to taking the fight to a Democratic incumbent governor and calling him on that and offering a better solution, better leadership,” he said. “Opportunity in this country was never just reserved for the precious few. It was supposed to be opportunity for everybody ...”

Steve, decided to create his own Pink Lightning Tour as a prelude to this year’s race. “Early last year Bryan came to me and said he wanted to ride the Courage Classic. So we trained and we rode the ride and he rode the entire route,” Bryan’s father Steve Warnecke said. “We had to stop a couple of times to let his lungs recover a little bit, but he rode the entire route and he raised $70,000, which was the most money ever raised by any rider in the 24 year history of the Courage Classic. “After the ride, we started talking about what we were going to do next. We talked about it over the winter and around Christ-

race. It’s a fun day,” said Sarah Grantham, a mother of three from Castle Rock. At the first Castle Rock Ducky Derby in 1997, only 500 ducks raced down the creek to the finish line, where the first several ducks earned their sponsors a few prizes. Each year since, the Ducky Derby has grown to the point that it now is a recognized and highly anticipated annual event for Castle Rock and the surrounding community. This year, the winning duck brought home

its owner, Richard Aslakson of Salida, $2,000. The second-place finisher, Patricia Portolano of Castle Rock, won $750 and third place and $250 went to Nancy Holmes of Castle Rock. There was not a $1 million winner this year and no one won a new car. To claim the million-dollar prize, the million-dollar ticket holder must win the race. If a ducky came in second and also had a new car ticket number, they would have won the new car. The Ducky Derby is the largest annual

fundraiser sponsored by the Castle Rock and Castle Pines Rotary clubs. Both clubs are part of Rotary International, a worldwide humanitarian organization with over 1.2 million members. The principal goal of Ducky Derby is to raise funds that will allow the local Rotary Clubs to perform service projects for such charitable organizations as the Douglas/ Elbert Task Force, local food banks, and the Women’s Crisis — Family Outreach Center.

mas time he decided to do a big ride around Colorado to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Courage Classic.” Bryan’s tour began with a 29.76-mile ride from Children’s Colorado’s main campus in Aurora to Children’s Colorado’s North Campus in Broomfield. He was joined by more than 20 other Courage Classic team captains and fellow riders. “We hadn’t ridden before (last year). We had so much fun training and on the Courage Classic that we kept riding all summer and we just really had fun,” Steve said. “It’s really good for his lungs too. The prolonged exercise and work helps to keep his lungs healthy.” The 2014 Courage Classic is an annual three-day, 155-mile bicycle tour that will run from July 19-21 and begins and ends at Copper Mountain. Funds raised through the Courage Classic benefit the Children’s Fund,

helping Children’s Hospital Colorado sustain and improve care for kids by addressing the hospital’s areas of greatest need. Bryan’s care for CF includes 50 pills and two half-hour respiratory physical therapy treatments each day as well as ongoing visits to Children’s Hospital Colorado.He said he intends to ride over 1,000 miles in 43 days around Colorado to thank Children’s Hospital Colorado for keeping him healthy and to encourage other kids with disabilities to remain physically active and pursue their dreams. “When we rode the `Courage’ last year we thought that was it and then this came up. It’s hard to say what comes next, but we intend for this to be a one off,” he said. “It’s the 25th anniversary, so this is special. “If it wasn’t for Children’s Hospital I wouldn’t be standing here today. This is our way of celebrating and giving back and

thanking all the people here.” Why Pink Lightning? Bryan loves hockey but realized years ago that he really would not have the lung capacity to skate up and down the ice with as much stamina as others, so he decided to play goalie where quickness is more important than lung capacity. “My first ever goalie pads had a pink x on them and my goalie coach said my legs were super quick so he nicknamed me `Pink Lighting’ and I kind of took it with me in every sport I’ve done since,” Bryan said. His ultimate dream is to be the first person with Cystic Fibrosis to compete in the Olympic Games as the goalie for the USA hockey team. He is currently a goalie for the Arapahoe Warriors Midget Minor hockey team. To find out more about Pink Lighting and donate, visit www.pinklightning.org.

Stampede rides again

KUVO collars kudos from columnist

Dillon James Tyner of Hoyt, Colo., catches a little air on June 6 during the PRCA Xtreme Bulls competition. The perennial event kicks off the Elizabeth Stampede and attracts top rodeo talent and stock from around the region. Photos by Deborah Grigsby

History, heritage foundation lead rodeo into 50th year By Deborah Grigsby

Special to Colorado Community Media Awarding more than $47,000 in prize money, the 2014 Elizabeth Stampede closed the arena Sunday night, June 8, again proving its status as a Colorado rodeo legend. This year brought in record numbers of fans for the three-day event, held June 6-8, and although official numbers were not available, estimates put total attendance somewhere close to 7,000. However, as it enters its 50th year, 27th as a professional event, the three-time Pro Rodeo Cowboys Association Small Rodeo of the Year keeps itself grounded in its roots as a community event. Organized and produce entirely by volunteers, Elizabeth Stampede Association President, Bill Snead calls the annual rodeo one of the few family sporting events

Pretty in pink, Gracie Mae Bauer, 4, of Elbert, accessorizes her outfit with a strawberry cake-pop on June 7 while taking in the sights and sounds of this year’s ElizaBash street festival, which took place on day two of the rodeo festivities.

Both rider and horse were able to finish the event. left. “Rodeo is just good, clean entertainment,” said Snead in a written statement. “It is a family experience based on purpose and by heritage.” “We really like the small town feel of the Stampede,” said Fran Delano of Larkspur, accompanied by his 6-year-old grandson, Hunter. “For me, it’s really an opportunity to connect with the next generation of my family, and events like the mutton bustin’ help me open that door on their level.” Top-ranked cowboys and cowgirls went head-to head, in some cases literally,

with some of the best stock in the region. Barrel racing, saddle bronc, team roping, steer wrestling and bull riding did not disappoint fans. “I love the ladies’ barrel racing,” said Marsha Ames of Aurora. “My daughter used to race before she went off to college — the girls and their horses really put their all into it.” The “Behind the Chute” tours, conducted an hour prior to each performance also gave fans the chance to meet the contestants, the rodeo clown, rodeo royalty, and see the stock up close.

Slow-cooked barbecue on a stick is kept warm over an open flame, just one of the many food choices at this year’s Elizabeth Stampede.

Denver’s own KUVO 89.3-FM public radio station was named one of the best Internet jazz radio stations worldwide by Pete Naughton, a writer for The Telegraph in London, one of the United Kingdom’s top media outlets. According to the story posted at www. kuvo.org/kuvo-news, Naughton, who writes for The Telegraph’s podcasts and internet radio columns, listed KUVO as one of the top three best “Jazz & Soul Internet Radio Stations” he’s discovered across the world. Below is what he reported in his online column, “Best Internet Radio Stations” on May 26. “I stumbled upon this award-winning music station by accident recently — and have been kicking myself for not finding it sooner. Based in Denver, Colorado, its artfully curated playlists mostly focus on jazz — broadcasting everything from Ella Fitzgerald to Madeleine Peyroux. A class act.” “We knew KUVO was a gem when we merged our public media organizations last year,” said Doug Price, president and CEO of Rocky Mountain PBS. “We’re proud of the work they do and the valuable service they provide to our Colorado community. We are excited for the future and the international doors that have been opened with the online radio stations and mobile app.” KUVO serves a diverse audience that loves jazz — all styles of jazz. The station’s lineup reflects the flavors of jazz from around the world. “We are proud of this international recognition,” said Carlos Lando, KUVO’s general manager. “We’ve always been proud of our long tradition of sharing jazz, blues and news with our loyal listeners in our community. But, it’s really fantastic that our community is growing worldwide. We have fans from Japan, Spain, China, and apparently the UK.”

Ren Fest opens this weekend Larkspurshire welcomes visitors for 38th season By Ryan Boldrey

rboldrey @coloradocommunitymedia.com The Colorado Renaissance Festival offers up yet another summer of turkey legs, jousting and themed weekends all wrapped in a magical package that sends visitors back to the 16th century, beginning this weekend. With fire-breathers, singing pirates and more than 200 artisans lining the village streets and pathways, there is something for everyone at Larkspur’s annual festival — not to mention, lots of food. As many dress the part of the era, it can sometimes be difficult to differentiate between who is a guest of the fair and who is among, as it states on the festival website, the “cast of hundreds of authentically costumed merrymakers living and working throughout the village and performing, continuously, upon the festival’s seven stages.” The Good King Henry will be present for all eight weekends, from the “Opening Weekend: Memories that Last” weekend of June 14-15 up until the “Fare Thee Well and Mardi Gras Style Carnivale” weekend of Aug. 2-3. There will be plenty of new entertainment this year to, including stage act, The KamiKaze Fireflies, who have appeared on America’s Got Talent. Ticket prices start online at $8 per child, age 5-12, and $16.95 for ages 13

Goodness gracious, ‘Great Balls of Fire.’ This man has the hottest job at the Colorado Renaissance Festival, performing four times a day, to the delight of much cooler spectators. This year’s festival kicks off June 14 and is open every Saturday and Sunday through Aug. 3, from 10 a.m. until 6:30 p.m. in Larkspur.

IF YOU GO Impromptu parades are never an uncommon sight at the Colorado Renaissance Festival, which kicks off June 14 and will feature themed weekends every weekend through Aug. 3. File photos and up. Prices are $9/$19.95 at the gate. Children under age 5 are free, as is parking. The Village of Larkspurshire, 650 W. Perry Park Ave. in Larkspur, will be open

from 10 a.m. - 6:30 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays only, rain or shine. No pets are allowed. For more information, please visit www.coloradorenaissance.com.

Parker Days marks start of summer fun Annual festival opens June 12 for weekend of activity By Chris Michlewicz

cmichlewicz @coloradocommunitymedia.com For many people, Parker Days marks the official start of summer. Kids have just finished school and moms and dads are trying to schedule a mix of fun family excursions. The annual festival in downtown Parker is near the top of the priority list for a lot of locals, who make sure to block out at least one day for stomach-churning carnival rides, foot-shuffling music, spiritlifting drinks and guilty-pleasure eats. The 2014 edition of Parker Days, which begins with a carnival sneak preview from 5-10 p.m. June 12 and runs to the night of June 15, promises the popular attractions of past years and a few additions. Organizers are introducing a “craft corner” near the O’Brien Park gazebo, with 20-plus craft vendors selling handmade items like stained glass, Adirondack chairs, tables made of reclaimed wood, and wine bottles heated and molded into cheese trays. A new competition area in the Las Delicias parking lot at Mainstreet and Pikes Peak

Drive will feature backyard games like pong, bag toss and ladder golf. Two-person teams can join tournaments for $10 and win prizes; casual players can play individual games, said Sara Crowe, founder of Events, Etc. Of course, there will be a selection of carnival rides for all ages on the north end of O’Brien Park from Wright Amusement, Co., the same company that has been furnishing rides for much of the festival’s 37 years. The Parker Days Parade will kick off the weekend at 10 a.m. June 14, winding through the downtown corridor and around the Victorian Drive loop. As many as 10,000 are expected to attend the parade, a tradition that will include fire trucks, high school marching bands, political candidates, equestrian groups, pageant royalty, the Wells Fargo stagecoach and representatives from Denver’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade. At 9 a.m. Sunday morning, June 15, Parker Days will host its first family fun run. The free event, which requires registration at www.

Murals replace graffiti on town trails Group plans to continue painting around Castle Rock By Mike DiFerdinando

mdiferdinando @coloradocommunitymedia.com Hikers passing under the bridge along East Plum Creek Trail near the railroad tracks in Castle Rock have probably noticed the underpass has been painted with a nature-themed mural. Under the bridge near Douglas County High School, another mural shows off Huskies school spirit. The artwork is part of an effort by Castle Rock police called Art Around the Rock. The goal is to paint murals on all of the town’s dozen bridge underpasses to help make a more beautiful trail system and to help deter crime, such as graffiti. The idea is part law enforcement science and part creativity. Officially called Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design, the theory is that police officers, planners, architects and the community can work together to prevent crime at the start of a project. By creating something that positively impacts human behavior — such as painting murals on bridges — crime can be de-

terred. “It gives people the impression that someone is watching them, which is a good thing. It cuts down on crime,” said officer Seth Morrissey, who is leading the project. Morrissey said he took a Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design course where he learned how art had been used a crime deterrent in cities like Detroit and Baltimore. “Every spring we get calls about graffiti popping up around town and we’ll send someone out to clean it up within 24-48 hours,” Morrissey said. “So I thought about it and said, `What if we took that idea of using art to help clean up those cities and we applied it to our trail system?’” Morrissey said that the trail system is a popular target for graffiti because many students walk the trails each day to school. He added that the murals make for a more inviting place to walk. Art Around the Rock began in May. Local artists Janene DiRico-Cable, Kim McKie and Rosie Lonhert created the nature mural. Members of the nonprofit DC Proud DC Strong, which works to prevent teen suicide, painted the bridge near Douglas County High School. More than two dozen volunteers have contributed 250 hours to the two projects.

To view a slideshow of pictures, visit CRgov.com/PDmurals.

Ideas for mural artwork go through an approval process. The program not only needs artists, but also supplies and volunteers. Individuals or groups interested in helping with Art Around the Rock can contact Morrissey at 303-663-6153.

For land’s sake, it’s an art show Douglas conservancy will benefit from event By Sonya Ellingboe sellingboe @coloradocommunitymedia.com The Douglas County Land Conservancy will host 20 noted regional and national landscape artists who will paint “en plein air” during the week of June 23 at Dawson Butte Open Space south of Castle Rock. They will display and sell the resulting artwork. The DLC says it is “dedicated to the preservation of the natural character, habitat and open space of the central Front Range region of Colorado, including Douglas County and surrounding areas.” The private open space is protected from future development by conservation easements, which fit the mission of the conservancy. The land is owned by Douglas County, and the 27-year-old conservancy holds the easement for this and other properties in Douglas, Elbert and Jefferson counties. The DLC holds 76 easements, protecting more than 22,000 acres, according to Richard Bangs of the DLC. The artists will donate part of the proceeds from sale of the week’s paintings to the DLC. From June 25-27, finished paintings will be exhibited and sold from 6-8 p.m. each evening at the Castle Rock Art Guild’s Art on the Edge Gallery at 314 Wilcox St. in Castle Rock, according to DLC executive director Patti Hostetler. These artists work in watercolor, acrylics, pastels, drawing and oil. On June 28, the main event will take place from noon to 6 p.m. at Dawson Butte Open Space Park. Artists will display and sell their paintings and conservancy volunteers will have food (burgers, brats, etc.) for sale, near picnic tables located at the trailhead. The public is invited to view, visit, buy an original artwork — and perhaps enjoy a hike on the Dawson Butte five-mile loop trail. Prospective buyers will be able to view the scene the artist chose to render and will also have an opportunity to talk

IF YOU GO For the June 28 event from noon to 6 p.m.: Dawson Butte Open Space is located south of Castle Rock. Take exit 174 off Interstate 25 and drive north on the frontage road for two miles. At the railroad crossing, turn left on Tomah Road. Drive 1.6 miles and turn right into Dawson Butte Open Space parking. (Address: 1923 Tomah Road, Castle Rock.) For the evening gallery shows, June 25-27, 6 to 8 p.m.: The Art on the Edge Gallery is at 314 Wilcox St. in Castle Rock.

Plein air painting events seem to be growing in popularity in Colorado, given its splendid scenery, and there is also an annual summer outdoor painting event in Denver, with urban paintings as well as landscapes resulting. There is an annual exhibit at the Denver Central Library at year’s end. Artists develop techniques for dealing with the vagaries of weather, devising ingenious ways to carry their paints, an easel and canvases or paper.

Plein air artist Don Hamilton will paint and exhibit his work in the Douglas County Land Conservancy benefit event. Working in sun and wind means paints dry more quickly and, at times, one will find dirt or insects blown into the project at hand. Participating artists include: Don and Linda Hamilton, Ginger Whellock, Amy Evans, Lorenzo Chavez (of Parker), Tricia Bass, Chuck Mardosz, Rita Cirillo, Wes Hyde, Cheryl St. John and Karen Toppel. Also: Buffalo Kaplinski (of Parker), Cynthia McBride, Karen Button, Eldon Warren, Marianna M. Dufford, Michael Ome Unteidt, Margaret Jensen, Rodgers Naylor and Molly Squibb.

Spangle special

A crowd of 300 people is expected to gather at 11 a.m. on June 13 at Wind Crest retirement community in Highlands Ranch to sing the national anthem, hoping to set a record for the largest intergenerational singing of “The Star-Spangled Banner.” The gathering at Wind Crest’s Fireside restaurant (3235 Mill Vista Road in Highlands Ranch) is part of the celebration of the 200th anniversary of Francis Scott Key’s writing of the poem during the bombardment of Fort McHenry that became the national anthem.

The seen

Cyndi Lauper and other girls (and boys) who just wanna have fun were spotted at Lucky Strike in the Denver Pavilions June 3. While there, Lauper bowled with a few of her staff while they ate crudites, fish tacos, guacamole and short rib tacos. I’m also told that she is much better suited as an awesome singer, as she bowled a 58. Lucky Strike staff noted that the celebrated singer was “very, very nice.”

Rock Canyon’s Young followed sport early Jaguar soccer standout bound for Portland U. By Jim Benton

jbenton @coloradocommunitymedia.com Kaycie Young grew up watching some of the best one-two touch soccer players and molded herself into one. Young, a Rock Canyon senior, is the Colorado Community Media Girls Soccer Player of the Year. She is headed to the University of Portland next fall to play soccer, and Young’s arrival means the Pilots will also be getting the 2014 Continental League Player of the Year and the Colorado Gatorade Player of the Year. “My sister (Bri) played soccer at a pretty high level when I was younger,” said Young. “I watched her play and I watch a lot of soccer on TV. I was taught to play that way (one-two touch). It was a pretty easy thing to develop because I had been watching it that way my whole life “ Rock Canyon coach Matt Henbest boasts that Young was part of the reason behind the Jaguars’ Continental League championship season. “She’s a good person with good character,” said Henbest. “In terms of on the field, she’s a

one-two touch soccer player. You have to be able to think quick. She sees the field so well. She is incredibly unselfish. She could have scored more goals. She is the all-time goalscoring leader at the school with 45.” Young, a 5-foot-7 midfielder, has led Rock Canyon in scoring the past three years. She finished her senior season with 13 goals and 35 points for Rock Canyon, which ended with a 16-2 record after a state quarterfinal loss to Ralston Valley. “If I have an opportunity, I usually try to take shots,” said Young. “I’ve always had players around me that can do that. I like to take shots when the opportunity presents itself. It comes with experience. It took me a while to start shooting.” It didn’t take long for opponents to learn that Young was a player who always needed to be marked. “Kaycie has a commanding presence on the field that is intimidating to opposing teams but yet calming to her teammates,” commented Highlands Ranch coach Danny Main . “I got to play with a lot of great people and the coaching staff was awesome,” said Young. “It was a great last year to end my high school career. I just wanted to be a good leader for all the underclassmen and returning players. I wanted to have fun and make it a memorable last season for me, and it was.”

Dedication puts two at head of class Highlands Ranch’s Turnage, Creek’s Colter devoted to peak performance By Jim Benton jbenton @coloradocommunitymedia.com Connor Turnage won his third consecutive triple jump state championship at the Colorado state track meet, and Jordyn Colter repeated as double winner in the May 16-18 meet at Jefferson County Stadium. Turnage, a senior at Highlands Ranch, is the Colorado Community Media South Metro Boys Track Athlete of the Year, while Cherry Creek’s Colter gets the honor on the girls side. “Connor is a really dedicated track athlete,” said Falcons head coach Lou Krauss. “He’s a student of the sport. He understands the technique. Triple jump is a sport typically where you don’t develop until your junior or senior year. He hasn’t been beat in the triple jump in the state of Colorado since his freshman year.” Turnage, who will continue his track career at Nebraska, jumped 48-09.75 to win his third straight state title and finish what he termed a frustrating season. “I can’t complain too much, it was the second-best jump of my life,” said Turnage, who was the 2013 Colorado Gatorade Track Athlete of the Year. “As frustrating as the season was, I was pretty happy. I wasn’t jumping very well up until two or three weeks before state. “I wasn’t jumping well throughout the whole season, but I brought it around at the end. I was pretty confident I could win at state. It was just a matter of doing what I could.” Krauss was also confident. “He’s a big meet jumper,” said Krauss. “There were a couple technical issues that were kind of disguised, and we just caught them two or three weeks before the state meet. He was trying something a little different that I wasn’t aware of, and it was getting him too far forward. “Once we got that sorted out, he started jumping better. We worked hard to clean up his form. If we would have had one more week before state, he would have been jumping a foot farther.” Colter finished strong to win the 1600 meters in 4:57.27 at the state meet and also captured the 800 in 2:09.16. She won both those events at the 2013 state meet. The diminutive junior, who weighs less than 100 pounds, won the state cross country meet as a freshman, but collapsed from low sodium, low potassium and a high white blood cell count while holding a siz-

Photo by Jim Benton able lead during 2012 meet. She had mono during last fall’s cross country championships. Colter was strong on the track against a talented field in this spring’s 800 and 1600, but after each race looked drained. “That’s definitely something we’ve been somewhat concerned about,” admitted Creek distance coach Ethan Dusto. “She actually spent a lot of time in the offseason doing weight training to get her muscle mass up and her weight up. She’s been working a lot of different weight training type things to get stronger. “She has probably put on five to eight pounds of muscle mass in the off-season. She gets after it and trains harder than anybody else that I coach. She is always trying to hit more miles and a faster pace. She wants to take some time off and I definitely would like her to take some time off, do some cross-training, keep up the weight training so that she can be fit and ready for the cross country season. She needs to take some time off.” There are national track meets that can extend the season through June. Colter might skip some of those meets this month, with emphasis on the word “might.” “I was very happy to win both races at state,” said Colter. “I coach a club team in the summer, so I run a little with them. I do a lot of cross-training. “I’ll just probably keep my miles up and do crosstraining and just get ready for cross county. I might do a few races.”

Connor Turnage of Highlands Ranch, seen here competing in the long jump at the state meet, won the Class 5A triple jump in 48 feet, 9.75 inches, earning himself his third consecutive state title in the event. The combined leaps also earned him the honor of being named Colorado Community Media’s south metro male track and field athlete of the year. Photo by Ryan Boldrey

McCaffrey’s camp continues in year five Dare to Play helps teach kids with Down syndrome the game of football By Jim Benton

jbenton @coloradocommunitymedia.com Hugs were being passed around as much as footballs. The first session of this year’s Global Down Syndrome Dare to Play Football Camp was held June 3 at Valor Christian High School. It is affiliated and runs simultaneously with a Dare to Cheer clinic, which was held at Sports Authority Stadium and Valor. Game day is set for June 14 at Valor between 8:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. with football games and cheerleaders performing prior to a celebration party. The games will kick-off with two members of the Thunderstorm Skydiving team landing in the stadium. Several Denver Broncos and Broncos cheerleaders will be in attendance. Campers and their buddy partners from the Valor Christian football team went through drills that usually ended with hugs and high-fives. The camp, developed by former Denver Bronco Ed McCaffrey, the Global Down Syndrome Foundation, Sie Center physical therapist Patricia C. Winders and Valor coaches, teaches core touch football skills to the participants who also partake in team-building activities. “It’s great,” said Valor senior Sabastian Sock. “I’m loving it. It’s great being out here with all these guys. This is one of everyone’s favorite times. It’s really nice to come out and be able to show football to these kids.” McCaffrey, a former NFL wide receiver, launched the camp in 2010. I was introduced to Michelle Sie Whitten (Global co-founder and Executive Director) by my buddy Luke Stahmer,” related McCaffrey. “He knew that I had been running football camps for a long time. She

Former Denver Bronco Ed McCaffrey talks to players during Valor Christian’s Dare to Play camp on June 3. Photos by Jim Benton (Whitten) was interested in creating an opportunity for young men and women with Down syndrome to play the sport of football and have a team activity. “I said I don’t see why we couldn’t put a camp together. Our coaches coach the game, these guys want to play. If you get campers to sign up, I’d be happy to come out and teach them the game of football and give them an opportunity to have some fun with their friends. Unfortunately there are not a lot of opportunities for young men and women with Down syndrome to participate in team activities. I wasn’t aware of that until she informed me of that fact. We’ve got to change that. If there’s anything that I know, it’s football so I said let’s start with a football camp. They do a cheer camp as well.” There were 40 campers at the start of this year’s camp, almost double in size from the first camp four years ago. “We are so grateful to Ed McCaffrey

for helping us put this camp together and to the Denver Broncos cheerleaders who spearhead our Dare to Cheer camp,” said Whitten. “With the help of the Sie Center at Children’s Hospital we are able to provide a safe and nurturing environment where the participants learn to play football and cheer. “Our first year we had several fathers actually tear up because they never thought that they would see their son play football. The joy this brings to our campers, their families and equally to the Valor Christian players really is more than we could ever hope for.’’ McCaffrey has scored a touchdown with this camp. “Every year we look forward to the kids coming out,” said McCaffrey. “You can see they are smiling, high-fiving and having fun with their friends. They are learning the sport and they are playing the game of football.”

Hooping it up The Continental vs. Centennial League summer basketball tournament challenge will be held June 19-21 at Heritage High School. The eight teams from each league will play against each other with each team guaranteed two games per day. The teams will play back-to-back games so players won’t have the stay around the gym. Head-to-head conference games will be tallied for the three days to determine which league is the best for the summer. Games will be held between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. each day. Games will have two 20-minute halves with a running clock. The clock will be stopped with a minute left in the first half and two minutes in the second half.

Oregon’s Bri Pugh, the older sister of Mountain Vista sophomore standout Mallory Pugh, has been selected to participate in the U.S. Under-23 Women’s National Team’s second training camp which will be held June 7-14 in Chula Vista, Calif. Pugh, who played at Mountain Vista, started 49 of 52 matches at Oregon in the past three years as a speedy forward but was called to the national camp as a defender where her athleticism could fit into the mold of an outside back. Mallory Pugh has participated in two Under-20 National training camps this spring.
