Arbitrator ends deal limiting land use Development coming near Happy Canyon By Virginia Grantier

vgrantier@ourcoloradonews.com

Procopio told Colorado Community Media recently. “No reason to over-extend ourselves. I myself preferred phasing.” So, the slimmed-down Phase 1 of the town’s biggest park-construction project ever — a 237-acre plot west of Interstate 25 off of Plum Creek Parkway and expected to have a regional draw — will result in the building of a 50,000-squarefoot field house that will include a pool,

A high plateau of undeveloped grassland, 3,300 acres just east of Interstate 25 and Castle Pines, is expected to soon start turning into something else — “one of the best master-planned communities not only within the state but within the region,” in the words of Mark Nickless, general manager of The Canyons development. “We’re excited about the possibility of getting this going,” he said of a plan that allows for 250 acres of commercial area and 2,500 homes. “The Alperts (landowners) have been working on this for a number of years.” But his excitement isn’t shared by homeowners nearby who had agreed in 2000 to a much smaller development. Years ago, Douglas County planners designated the area as a “special high plateau,” a place to restrict development and create a visually beautiful northern Douglas County gateway. Real estate developer Lee Alpert ultimately got the OK from Douglas County commissioners to develop the land, but nearby homeowners with

Rising costs slow park plan Construction, unstable soil drive up numbers By Virginia Grantier

vgrantier@ourcoloradonews.com Castle Rock’s under-construction Philip S. Miller Regional Park will have an outdoor amphitheater — and a facility with a pond for weddings and meetings — someday. But not in the next several months, as was planned, Castle Rock Town Council

decided recently. The council, faced with unexpected costs because of unstable soil condition and rising construction costs — estimated to total more than $4.4 million in additional costs and rising — decided that was too much to take out of reserve funds. “I think the majority of council actually favors the project but did not favor the immediate increase in authorized expenditures with other funding priorities not yet cast in concrete and preferred phasing,” Councilmember Joe

Do-anything-for-anyone man dies suddenly Rob Boardman’s passing shocks Larkspur residents By Virginia Grantier

vgrantier@ourcoloradonews.com There was this Larkspur resident, Rob Boardman, 47, who always seemed to be there if someone needed him — even though he had fragile, elderly parents to watch over and a auto-body business to run. “He was a wonderful kid, always wanted to help everybody,” said Larkspur Mayor Gerry Been, who has known Boardman since he really was a kid. Boardman, a 1984 Douglas County High School graduate, had a lot of nicknames: “Burn” was one, maybe because he was a volunteer Larkspur firefighter for 24 years. He took care of a lot of people in this town of maybe 200 and he didn’t have to travel far to do it. His family’s auto-body business is in the heart of town. He could reach most of the people and places within a block or two. There was the elderly couple who didn’t

have family around and counted on him. And then even after they died, he still kept up the yard on their vacant house. Post office workers knew he’d always be there if someone had a dead battery. The clerk at the Larkspur Country Store said she knew he’d always be there if she needed help carryBoardman ing something or repairing something. Marvin Cardenas, a local artist, said he thinks the first time he met Rob was because Rob offered to help him clean up the trashy yard of the house Cardenas had just rented. Even a local gray squirrel had become attached to him, and became a pet, after boldly walking into Boardman’s garage one day while Boardman was eating peanuts. He always had a corny joke to tell and was always smiling, several people said.

Employment, retail sales up in county Second-quarter figures show positive signs By Ryan Boldrey

rboldrey@ourcoloradonews.com The unemployment rate in Douglas County continues to drop, dipping to 5.6 percent at the conclusion of the second quarter, the lowest since 2008. According to the county’s second quarter economic report, prepared by Development Research Partners and released Oct. 3, that number translates to 7,300 new jobs in the county, as well as an 8 percent rise in employment from year to year.

The bulk of those jobs are in professional and business services (1,817 jobs), information services (1,200 jobs), and wholesale trade and employment (488 jobs). “These outcomes suggest that when we, as well as our public/private partners, focus on and invest intelligently in the foundations that support and attract economic growth, we position Douglas County for economic success,” said Douglas County Commissioner Jill Repella. Repella, and the report, both suggest that things are going to continue to improve, highlighting new developments such as Sterling Ranch, which expects to bring 12,050 single-family homes into the northwestern part of the county, and numerous

companies continuing to move into the county. Retail sales have also increased dramatically for the county as a whole, jumping 6.1 percent over the year in the second quarter. Highlands Ranch led the way in retail sales increase with a 14.7 percent leap, while Lone Tree, the county’s largest retail area, was just 0.3 percent higher than a year ago. “Economists note that consumers are considerably more positive about business and labor market conditions compared with the beginning of the year,” the report states.

the second quarter in 2012 to 2,264 in 2013, while condominium sales have also climbed, increasing from 226 to 291 over the same time frame. As interest rates remain near all-time lows and inventory increases, houses are flying off the market, which has in turn driven up prices. The average single family-home was selling for $362,110 in 2012, compared to $390,614 at the same time in 2013. The average condominium price, similarly, has climbed from $203,940 to $218,818. Office vacancies are also down to 7.4 percent, the lowest since 2008, and industrial vacancies have dropped to 2.3 percent, the lowest since 2001.

DISTRICT E

Barbra Chase

Douglas Benevento (incumbent)

• Restore resources to our schools. The District’s fund balance has quadrupled to $83 million due to their inability to budget accurately. • Restore our high schools. Put kids back in school full time, reduce student/teacher ratios and increase the amount of instructional time to better prepare our students for college/careers. • Bring the public back to our public schools. Address plummeting parent satisfaction in Douglas County School District. Jim Geddes - No response -

DISTRICT D Julie A Keim • Loss of Academic Excellence Which is Directly Impacting Our Students • Lack of Accurate Budgeting and Financial Reporting, Resulting in Insufficient Funds Passed Down To the Schools Educating Our Students • Devaluation of Public Input and Educator Collaboration Resulting in Ineffective Implementation of Many Strategies

- No response Bill Hodges • Lack of Fiscal Transparency • Increased class sizes and decreased instructional time for students due to BOE/Administration using an economic model for cuts vs. what’s best for kids • Lowered graduation requirements and flat-lining of TCAP results

DISTRICT G Ronda Scholting • Loss of trust with community • Mismanagement of tax dollars • Academic performance Meghann Silverthorn (incumbent) • Ensuring that education evolves to remain relevant and engaging for today’s kids • Maintaining and expanding facilities to accommodate usage and growth • Balancing funding mandates and directives from the state with future classroom needs

Judi Reynolds • Unequal Funding • Local Control • High School Curriculum Awareness

If elected, how would you work on addressing these challenges as a school board member? DISTRICT B

DISTRICT E

Barbra Chase

Douglas Benevento (incumbent)

I will call for a financial audit to understand why DCSD is unable to budget accurately and return large operating surpluses to our schools. I will initiate staff, parent and community surveys immediately to understand the feedback from the community in which I represent. Limit the amount of meeting time behind closed doors and increase the amount time the Board meets in public. Jim Geddes - No response -

Bill Hodges Focus tax dollars back into the classroom Fiscal transparency Stop so much BOE business being conducted behind closed doors via executive sessions Rebuild trust between the BOE and our communities by encouraging their input The BOE should hire outside legal counsel vs. using an attorney hired by the Superintendent in an effort to avoid any conflict of interest

DISTRICT D

DISTRICT G

Julie A Keim

Ronda Scholting

I will work to bring the majority of Board meeting time back into the public, with meaningful discussions representing varying viewpoints. I will work with school leaders to assess needs, critically analyze fund balances, and identify parameters for the use of Board-designated reserves as necessary. I will work to give principals sufficient funding in their SBB to make independent decisions for their students and schools. I will work to develop and implement a meaningful assessment tool and merit-based pay structure that allows teachers to be effective leaders in their classrooms without unnecessary paperwork that keeps them from engaging with students. Judi Reynolds Unequal Funding- The current funding formula from the state and the amendment 66 proposal place Douglas county children at a fiscal disadvantage. I will continue to voice my concerns at the state level and testify against any proposal that impacts funding of the students, teachers, staff, and schools of the Douglas County School District. Local Control - The state has created several new laws that school districts are required to abide by, even if they were created to solve a problem the DCSD does not have. Recently the state adopted House Bill 12-1238: The Colorado READ Act. The READ Act imposes new assessments on DCSD students, even though they have some of the highest reading scores in the metro area.

Please visit strongschoolscoalition.org/election-2013/ for complete response.

1) Loss of trust: Currently, 49% of Douglas County School Board meetings are held in secret, more than any other district in the state of Colorado. The public’s business, as carried out by a democratically elected body, should be conducted in the open. It’s nearly impossible to have checks and balances and trust within an institution that does so much of its business behind closed doors. The secret meetings have to stop. 2) Mismanagement of tax dollars: As the number of students has increased, the District has decreased the number of teachers, but increased the administrative staff. The first step toward to fiscal sanity is to stop hiring administrators and paying them huge bonuses and salaries and instead focus that money back into the classroom. Please visit strongschoolscoalition.org/election-2013/ for complete response. Meghann Silverthorn (incumbent) CVHS’s Modern Learners panel was a great example of how schools are addressing the need for educational evolution. Teachers lead, while district staff and even kids assist. Facilities are an ongoing challenge for a growing district. Prudent use and investment of existing monies is already in place. Future bond dollars or other financial instruments will be needed to build facilities. DCSD’s share of the state retirement system, PERA, will grow over the next decade. Strong financial management, as in DCSD FY13 allocations of reserve for PERA, is needed to avoid having to shift costs to employees or impacting classrooms.

Parents’ rally brings in national speakers ‘Education reform’ is called ‘hijacked’ term By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com

A pair of education experts who spoke during an Oct. 5 rally said the term “education reform” has changed in recent years. “Before the corporate reformers, Shaun and I would have identified ourselves as reform supporters,” said Tim Slekar, cohost of an Internet show on Blog Talk Radio called “At the Chalk Face.” “Education reform … let’s first admit the word has been hijacked. It’s a corporate mentality. The reform in Douglas County is very corporate.” “It’s like a microcosm of what’s happening nationally,” said co-host Shaun Johnson, who believes education reform “is essentially a marketing slogan.” “Choice is essentially divorcing money allocated to the public system so they can (direct) that money to the market,” Johnson said. “It’s being taken over by the reform movement,” Slekar said. “If you’re not looking closely, they’re ripping (education) apart. You already had a great education system in Douglas County.” The two Pennsylvania residents spoke during a parent-coordinated rally Oct. 5 at Highlands Ranch’s Civic Green Park. Blogger Jennifer Berkshire, a Massachusettsbased communications consultant whose “EduShyster” blog focuses on corporate education reform, also spoke to the approximately 200 people gathered for the event. All three were flown in to speak at the rally and at an Oct. 4 ThunderRidge High

School showing of the documentary “The Reformers.” The movie by Castle Rock parent and filmmaker Brian Malone criticizes the current school board and questions the wisdom of its model of education reform. Douglas County High School graduate and college freshman Abby Kimball, who appeared in the film, also spoke at the park about problems during her senior year after changes were made to the high school schedules. Berkshire said discussions about changes in education are under way in her home state of Massachusetts. “Our conversation is moving into a Douglas County direction,” she said. “They’re saying we need to make schools more like businesses.” Berkshire said she’s been communicating with a group of concerned Douglas County parents for about a year, and said she was “honored” to be invited for the weekend’s events. “Whatever happens in November, they’ve tapped into something big,” she said, referring to the school board election. “People’s eyes have been opened.” Though the national speakers donated their time and stayed with community members, their flights were paid for with donations collected by Voices for Public Education, said the group’s co-founder, Stephanie Fuhr. The group, which paid $1,189 to fly the three speakers to the rally, has sponsored a series of public education talks since June and is sponsored by Taxpayers for Public Education, the nonprofit that filed suit against the Douglas County School District’s voucher program. Donations to Voices also paid the park rental fee.

‘Grinches’ disrupt gathering in Highlands Ranch park Sheriff ’s deputies escort costumed protesters away By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com Douglas County sheriff’s deputies escorted about half a dozen protestors dressed as Grinches out of Highlands Ranch’s Civic Green Park after they disrupted an Oct. 5 parent-initiated rally. Protesters attired in the same costumes — Santa suits with Grinch masks — have stood holding signs ridiculing the teachers’ union outside the Douglas County School District administration building during controversial meetings, at a June parent protest at Lone Tree’s Marriott hotel, and outside the debut Sept. 3 showing of filmmaker Brian Malone’s anti-school board documentary, “The Reformers.”

On Oct. 5, the Grinches initially were allowed to stay on the condition that they remain quiet, said parent Delana Maynes, who helped coordinate the event. But in a departure from their silent appearances of the past, Saturday’s Grinches wandered through the crowd, shaking tambourines and playing hand-held drums, in an apparent attempt to drown out the national speakers who had been flown in for the rally. The rally’s organizers called sheriff’s deputies, who removed the Grinches from the park. The event was organized by Voices for Public Education, a group that has sponsored a series of speeches on education. Though the identities of the costumed protesters on Oct. 5 are unknown, Parker police said the two Grinches at the Sept. 3 movie event were teenage boys paid for their time by an unknown adult man.

Douglas County crews lend hand Farm roads opened in time for harvest due to assistance

For fast, fair friendly service contact ...

By Ryan Boldrey

rboldrey@ourcoloradonews.com Before the rain even stopped, during one of the worst three-day stretches of flooding in Colorado history, Douglas County commissioners were on the phone with their friends in Weld County, asking how they could help. Without hesitation, Weld County officials accepted, and nine employees of Douglas County’s Public Works Department were soon on their way, equipment in tow, to help rebuild 11 roads and bridges, vital to Weld County’s agricultural production. “As devastating as the flood was, what would have been a much larger tragedy would have been the inability of the farmers to harvest their crops,” said Weld County Commissioner Sean Conway. “We were hit with a double hammer. We had 109 roads washed out, many of them that were farm-to-market roads. And with it being harvest time, we were really facing the possibility of a second disaster in a matter of days. “Most of the roads were inaccessible, and with our limited resources and crews, there were just too many projects to get done and we had to prioritize the larger projects.” But being the home to a $1.5 billion agricultural industry, the largest in Colorado and eighth largest in the United States, Weld County simply could not afford to have its farmers unable to get machinery and equipment to their farms, while tens of thousands of acres of farmland had crops

A good person to know for your insurance needs

Willie Colby, equipment operator for Douglas County Public Works, was one of nine Douglas County employees who have been spending the past couple weeks helping repair roads and bridges devastated by flooding in Weld County. Courtesy photo perish at harvest time. “When I say Douglas County Public Works employees are viewed as heroes here, they truly are just that,” Conway said. “The work they did allowed for at least a partial harvest for our farmers, and depending on the weather, possibly a full harvest for many. This is not only a life-saver for our farmers but the entire state of Colorado. This is the second largest industry in Colorado and we account for almost half of it.” Douglas County employees have been in Weld County since Interstate 25 reopened just days after the flood, and have plans to stay at least another week or two.

School foundation’s role in campaign questioned Consultant pay among issues as election nears By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com A group of parents and a former Douglas County Educational Foundation chairman believe a veil of secrecy has fallen over the school’s district nonprofit fundraising arm. The foundation’s current chair, however, said the organization has been unfairly ensnared in a contentious school board election. “It is silly season for campaigns right now,” Amy Sherman said. “It makes me so sad (the DCEF) is getting dragged into this mess.” Bob Kaser, a past chairman of the Douglas County Educational Foundation, sees the foundation’s situation as anything but silly. His months-long quest for answers to questions about changes to the organization has been met with repeated delays and silence. “We’ve lost sight of the kids, the parents and the teachers,” said Kaser, secretary of the Strong Schools Coalition, a group critical of the current board and administration. The DCEF is a 23-year-old organization created, its website says, to “develop private resources to enrich education within Douglas County schools for the fulfillment of lifelong learning experiences of our students, citizens and community.” Kaser served on the board seven years, chairing it from 1994 to 1996. Recently, money donated to the foundation from a private organization paid for former U.S. Secretary of Education Bill Bennett’s Sept. 25 speech at the Lone Tree Arts Center — given three weeks before ballots are mailed for the high-stakes school board election. Bennett, a district consultant paid by the DCEF, both praised and questioned Douglas County’s education reforms, and referenced white papers written by himself and another DCEF-paid consultant, Rick Hess. “It was private donation funds” that paid Bennett, Sherman said. “No other kid, school or parent money was used.”

Consultant one of many

Douglas County School Board President John Carson, a DCEF board member, disclosed after the speech that Bennett’s ap-

pearance was part of a $50,000, longer-term consulting agreement that began in July. Bennett is among several DCSD consultants paid through private DCEF donations, he said. “We raise funds to do that and that seems to me to be a very appropriate function for an educational foundation,” he said. “If private fundraising is done to support education experts working with our district, I don’t know why anyone would have an issue with that. It seems to be very beneficial to the Douglas County School District.” Sherman said Bennett’s address was covered by an August donation from the private, Denver-based Considine Family Foundation. The donation was approved during the foundation’s August board meeting, Sherman said, and also covered at least part of Hess’ fees. Hess consulted with the school board in 2010 as it began its search for a new superintendent, according to an EdNews Colorado article. Carson did not disclose Bennett’s, Hess’ or other paid consultants’ status through the foundation until he was questioned by Colorado Community Media after the Lone Tree event. Sherman said she did not know why the donated money was given to the DCEF instead of directly to Bennett, Hess and/or the Lone Tree Arts Center, which hosted Bennett’s address. She directed those questions to DCSD spokeswoman Cinamon Watson, who has led the foundation since 2012. Watson, when asked for an explanation of the consultants’ pay and copies of their contracts, wrote: “The constant attacks on DCEF are part of election season posturing.” She noted that a private grant covered Bennett’s work, listed several foundation accomplishments, and wrote that expert input and review is helping the district establish “a solid foundation” for its transformation of public education. In an Oct. 5 phone interview, Carson said he didn’t have dollar amounts for all consultants readily available, but said some work was provided pro bono.

Focus ‘really a shame’

Sherman said the foundation recently received an outside legal opinion that the board acted within its legal authority. “To focus on this Bennett issue is really a shame for all the hard work this (founda-

tion) board is doing,” she said, pointing to the more than $100,000 in grants and scholarship funds the foundation has made to students, teachers and schools in the last year. “We are trying to stay out of the political part.” A Colorado publication for nonprofits suggests organizations avoid potentially problematic situations. “Principles and Practices for Nonprofit Excellence in Colorado,” a document produced by the Colorado Nonprofit Association, includes a section titled “Declining Gifts.” “A nonprofit should decline gifts (cash or non-cash) that would bring about adverse conditions for the organization or its constituents and given for purposes outside the scope of its mission,” it reads. During his tenure, Kaser said the DCEF was careful to remain neutral and opened all its records and activities to the public. Hiring consultants was not within the scope of its mission, as he understood it. “We raised funds for worthy grants for kids,” he said. “We never engaged in all these satellite activities.”

Superintendent’s email

DCSD Superintendent Elizabeth Fagen, who also sits on the DCEF board, sent an email to parents Oct. 2 to explain the district’s use of consultants. According to Fagen’s email, the thirdparty validation provided by such consultants is critical, and part of the effort DCSD launched in March 2011 to implement “the most rigorous transformation plan in American public education.” “Please understand that in some cases (like Dr. Bennett and Dr. Hess), private funders paid for their time/work in our district to provide an expert, third-party review,” the email reads. “In other cases where there was a heavy focus on proactive strategic planning and/or implementation through professional development, community outreach, and collaboration, the district paid for the support for our staff.” Fagen, who said it is customary to pay experts for their work and expertise, specifically mentions Bennett, Hess and education experts that include Tony Wagner, Yong Zhao and Ken Kay in her email. Parent Susan Arnold views the consultants’ involvement differently. “It feels very much like paid PR,” she said.

Parents seek answers

Arnold and parent Stefania Scott met Sept. 30 with Watson and Fagen to ask questions about DCEF’s funding of consultants, and said they felt largely “stonewalled” in their efforts to obtain answers. The two women had questions about the consultants’ pay, donors’ names, the foundation’s budget and its relationship with the Starboard Group, which describes itself as “the state’s premier Republican fundraising and consulting firm.” The Starboard Group helped coordinate a summer golf fundraiser and a fundraising luncheon for the DCEF. Starboard’s contract for the luncheon showed it received a retainer and a percentage of gross revenues, and the firm declined to release its contract with DCEF for the golf event. Arnold and Scott also asked to see foundation board minutes and its conflict-ofinterest policy. Their questions have not yet been answered or requests granted. DCSD also has rejected Colorado Open Records Law requests from another parent and Colorado Community Media about its relationship with the foundation, noting that as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, DCEF records are not subject to open records requirements.

Request for minutes

Kaser repeatedly has attempted to obtain foundation board minutes from June 2011 to present and has to date been unsuccessful. He emailed his initial request for the minutes Aug. 27. In a Sept. 12 follow-up email checking on the status of his request for minutes, Kaser wrote to Watson, Sherman and DCEF secretary Carol Stulz: “Since the salaries of the four employees of the DCEF and all the financial/board records are maintained on DCSD information systems and by taxpayer funds, disclosure of a nonprofit’s actions should not be impeded.” In an Oct. 4 email to Kaser, Watson wrote, “We will try and respond to your request late next week.” Kaser described that as the latest in a series of delays; as of Oct. 8, he had received no additional correspondence about his request. Kaser also repeatedly has asked to see Role continues on Page 7

Government, professional group provide guidelines for nonprofit activity The Douglas County Educational Foundation, founded 23 years ago as the Douglas County School District’s fundraising arm, is a nonprofit. Some parents — concerned about the foundation’s payments to consultants and a speech by paid consultant Bill Bennett in the weeks preceding the school-board election — see the activity as a potential threat to its nonprofit status. A 501(c)(3) organization must “serve the public good,” according to the Internal Revenue Service. Such groups “must absolutely refrain from participating in the political campaigns of candidates for local, state, or federal office,” according to the IRS. Some campaign-related activities and expenditures are allowed, but that allowance hinges on circumstances. Permitted activities include “the presentation of public forums … conducted in a non-partisan manner,” according to the

Bennett’s Sept. 25 presentation was coordinated by the South Metro Denver Chamber of Commerce as a presentation on education and his view of Colorado schools. “On the other hand, voter education or registration activities with evidence of bias that would favor one candidate over another, oppose a candidate in some manner, or have the effect of favoring a candidate or group of candidates, will constitute campaign intervention,” according to the IRS. Such activities jeopardize an organization’s nonprofit status. Among the factors the IRS considers that tend to show an advocacy communication is political campaign activity: • Whether the statement is delivered close in time to the election. • Whether the issue addressed in the communication has been raised as an issue distinguishing candidates for a given office. • Whether the communication is part of an ongoing series of communications by the organization on the same issue that are made independent of the timing of any elec-

A June fundraising luncheon for the DCEF was coordinated with help from the Starboard Group, self-described as “the state’s premier Republican fundraising and consulting firm.” Starboard’s contract with the DCEF for the “Love Our Schools” fundraising luncheon shows its event management fee as a $1,500 retainer, “plus 7 percent of gross revenues.” “Principles and Practices for Nonprofit Excellence in Colorado” — a publication of the Colorado Nonprofit Association, which credits support from Colorado’s secretary of state and attorney general — addresses “Compensation of Fundraising Professionals”: “A nonprofit should ensure that compensation for fundraising personnel and contractors is not based on a percentage of funds raised or other commission-based formulas,” it reads. Another section addresses accessibility and public information, stating, “A nonprofit organization should make information about its operations — including its governance, finances, programs and activities — widely available to the community and on the organization’s website.”

School board rips tax-hike measure Resolution opposes plan for change in education finance By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com Going against the grain of other Colorado school districts that support Amendment 66, the Douglas County School Board took a public stand against the measure during their Oct. 1 meeting. The board formally adopted a resolution opposing the issue that will appear on the Nov. 5 ballot. The proposed statewide income tax will put a disproportionate share of the burden to fund its proposed school-finance overhaul on Douglas County residents, while returning only about half that money to the school district, according to the resolution. It also cites a lack of research to support the proposed reforms, a predicted negative effect on small businesses and job growth and a failure to address already existing education funding problems among the board members’ many reasons for opposing the issue. Board vice president Kevin Larsen compares the amendment to Route 66, the highway eclipsed by the interstate system that once served as the major route to the western United States. “This is an education finance tollway,”

he said. “For every dollar DCSD gets, Douglas County taxpayers pay a toll of a dollar to the rest of the state. The highway really goes from Douglas to Denver.” Though the proposed $950 million, two-tiered income tax increase would raise taxes for all, it would take a larger chunk on income earned above $75,000 a year. The median household income in Douglas County is about $95,000. In exchange for Douglas County taxpayers sending an estimated $90 million to $100 million to the state, the school district will get back about $50 million in new funds. Board members also cite as problematic a change in funding for at-risk students — those from low-income families and/or English-language learners. Under the proposal, districts whose enrollment of at-risk students exceeds the state average would receive up to 140 percent of the statewide average. Douglas County has relatively few students who fall into those categories. Board member Craig Richardson called that idea “a form of financial apartheid I find outrageous. “The concept (that) an at-risk child in this county deserves fewer resources than an at-risk child in Denver is an act of legislative cynicism,” he said. Eighteen Colorado school boards so far have endorsed the proposal.

crime report Car stolen, keys in it

A Castle Rock man, 22, told police that at 11:30 p.m. Sept. 27, he left his keys on the floor of his car like he always does, left the car unlocked, went to bed, and the next morning when he went back out to the apartment complex’s parking lot, the car was gone. The victim had recently bought the 1998 gray Toyota Camry, valued at $2,000, from his father, and the new license plates were in the car. His wallet with three “unknown bank cards” was also in the stolen car, which was located in the 400 block of Scott Boulevard, and there was a $1,000 turbocharger on the backseat.

Bike stolen from under stairs

A $400 bike with two flat tires and a broken brake cable was stolen from under the owner’s stairs in the 1100 block of Plum Creek Parkway sometime between 9

a.m. and 8 p.m. Sept. 23. The bike, a silver Harro mountain bike with a black seat, had been secured with a silver cable lock that had been cut. The owner didn’t have a serial number for the bike.

Wood flooring stolen

About $8,000 worth of laminate-wood flooring in 25 boxes was stolen from the garage of an under-construction house in the 3700 block of Starry Night Loop sometime between 3 p.m. Sept. 19 and 9 a.m. Sept. 20, according to a Castle Rock police report. A 29-year-old Aurora man, employed by a flooring installing company, told police the doors were both closed when he left the house, but not locked, and when he came back the following morning, 25 out of 31 boxes of the wood flooring were gone.

Role Continued from Page 6

DCEF’s conflict-of-interest policy, a document recommended by the IRS to “establish procedures that will offer protection against charges of impropriety involving officers, directors or trustees.” On Aug. 20, he mailed a request for the policy to Sherman, Watson, Fagen and members of the school board, he said. He instead received an email copy of the DCEF’s board service commitment pledge, which requires board members to pledge to avoid a conflict of interest. That pledge does not address the activities of DCEF employees.

Document called ‘political’

Susan Meek, who in addition to being a former DCSD spokeswoman and DCEF business partnerships coordinator is advising candidates who oppose the current board, believes a line may have been crossed. In Bennett’s speech, in addition to referring to a white paper he wrote, he referenced a white paper co-written by consultant Hess, called “The Most Interesting School District in America?” The paper, written by Hess and a colleague from the conservative American Enterprise Institute, was released Sept. 17. The school district touted the paper in its Sept. 18 electronic parents’ newsletter, Newsline, but did not indicate Hess

received financial compensation. While Hess’ paper discloses the project was done with DCSD’s cooperation, it includes positive information about the current board and its mission. Neither paper discloses the writers’ paid consultant status. “In my mind, those are clearly political papers with political purpose,” Meek said. “What was lacking in (Bennett’s) white paper and at the event was a statement: `I was paid to review.’ It’s very misleading and it’s a political document released weeks before the election.” Hess’ paper, co-authored by AEI colleague Max Eden, includes a section on the election of a reform board. “DougCo is a compelling illustration of how a unified board majority can fuel rapid, ambitious reform,” it reads. It also includes a highlighted box of board member profiles, noting, “The DougCo board, consisting of conservative members swept into office by record voter turnout, has been steadfast in its commitment to school choice, performance pay, and wholesale reform.” Bennett’s own September white paper on the district, titled “A Model for the Nation?” describes the expiration of the teachers’ union agreement, concluding, “The district is now in the unique situation where its reform agenda can proceed full speed ahead virtually unfettered by opposition. The current district leaders have unanimous control of the board and the teachers’ union is no longer organized nor engaged in opposition.”

opinions / yours and ours

Anonymous prank leaves paper trail The neighbors’ trees were toilet-papered last night. This is what is known as a prank. What toilet-papering accomplishes I do not know. And I have never known if it is a malevolent exercise or not. Are the victims disliked or embraced? It could be just a way of letting someone know that you were thinking of them when you walked past the 12-rolls-half-off display. It’s a fairly benign prank, and certainly doesn’t carry as much heft as, say, having your home and trees littered with mud or seafood. If you went out some morning and found hundreds of carp on your roof, that might hold much deeper implications. How did this — toilet papering — get started? It is most commonly associated with Halloween and graduation, which are just about the same thing. Maybe you know the story of the Frisbee. In 1938 Fred Morrison and his future wife Lucile were offered a quarter for the cake pan they were tossing back and forth on the beach in Santa Monica, Calif. At the time, cake pans were a nickel, so Fred had an idea. I think you know exactly

where this is going, so I will fast-forward to the first Frisbees, which were called Pluto Platters. The name was changed to Frisbee after Wham-O bought the rights, and it was learned that Northeastern college students were calling them Frisbies. The Frisbie Pie Co. was located in Bridgeport, Conn. What began as a cake pan on the beach became a multimillion-dollar success, and a major American pastime and sport, for people and dogs of all ages. Even though there is no money to be made in toilet-papering, I assume, it too has endured. It was going on when I was in grade school. Ike was in office.

But it had to start somewhere. I picture one of two things. A workers’ riot at Charmin. My father sold ball bearings, or more exactly, he sold the balls for ball bearings. They came in all sizes, and some of them, used as projectiles in a factory riot, could be mighty dangerous. And that’s exactly what happened, and the factory was closed. But a workers’ riot at Charmin would be laughable. And that’s what might have happened. It went from a riot to a good time, and the hilarity went off-campus, and employees started to see their homes and trees being toilet-papered by co-workers, perhaps as a symbol of unity. My other theory is that some of employees got intoxicated, and on their lunch break took some rolls outside and began tossing them back and forth. The employees tried to throw to each other, but half the time the toilet paper landed in the trees and streamed down. Too drunk to clean up their mess, it was left. It being homecoming weekend, some local high school kids thought it was Charmin’s way of saying “Go Mechanicsburg!”

letters to the editor

question of the week

What was your most unusual present? People give gifts of all types, some mundane and some very different. Colorado Community Media asked people in a variety of local locations about an unusual gift they had received.

“The most unexpected gift I ever received was several years ago at Christmas. I expected the usual gifts but my husband surprised me with a very nice camera and a vacation in Hawaii.” — Cheryl Adamson, Englewood

“The most exciting gift I ever received was when my mother gave me a horse for Christmas when I was 13 or 14.” — Vicky Gordon, Phoenix

“I have been thinking and I don’t think anyone has ever given me an unusual gift. I get gifts but they are pretty stock items like socks, shirts and ties.” — Joe Sack, Highlands Ranch

“It was a shirt from my girlfriend that was wrapped in four boxes, in a bag and the shirt was folded up in a box. The shirt was nice and the wrapping made me laugh.” — Victor Limon, Sheridan

In-between is really middle of nowhere Some of you may remember the Gerry Rafferty song, “Stuck in the Middle,” and then again, since it was written and first performed in 1972 by Stealers Wheel, maybe there are more of you who don’t have a clue about what I am referring to. That’s OK. The point is this: Are you stuck in the middle? Are you in the middle of a project, the middle of a decision, the middle of a quarrel, or just stuck in the middle of anything? You see, it’s the middle that gets us. It’s not the “yeses” or the “noes” that derail us, it is the “maybes” that bring us the greatest frustration. It’s when we get paralyzed by indecision or suffer paralysis by analysis as we overthink each and every single thing we do. You know what I mean, right? It’s that in-between stuff that really muddles the middle. Those “tweener” situations where we do not know if we are in or out, or on which side, or whose side we will fall. The real questions are why and how we find

and a tradition was born. Do you have a better idea? I have never been on either end — he said — of toilet papering, but I am certain that the application is a lot more enjoyable than the removal. I said that I assumed that there was no money to be made in toilet papering, but there is money to be made in almost anything. There could be TP hit squads for hire. If you are my age and wanted to TP the Waterhavens, you could just hire someone to do it for you. It’s not a lot of fun to read the news today, is it? It’s very frustrating, adult-stuff, unfortunately. But I think we all can get a moment’s reprieve by seeing something as silly as a home that has been papered. For some reason, it has been passed along, generation to generation, and there is no end in sight. Forgive me.

Retailer will change neighborhood

Those of us who live in Plum Creek will soon have to contend with a retail business in our midst, Tractor Supply Co., which is under construction. I understand from talking with town personnel that this area was zoned commercial in 1985. Well, a lot has changed since then and I feel this sort of business is out of character for the current landscape. It’s right across from a school and a new church, at the entrance to a large residential development. It’ll be a one-off and an eyesore for the community, along with an impact to traffic. It belongs somewhere in the vicinity of the Wolfensberger Road area, or up by the big-box stores, not in a quiet neighborhood. Up until now, we’ve had the railroad tracks and Plum Creek Parkway as buffers to commercial development. Sadly, this has changed. I, for one, will continue to patronize the establishments where I currently do business, and not shop here. Chris Demarest Castle Rock

Everyone can know their life matters Everybody can know their life matters. But a lot of people don’t. It is especially tragic when young people take their own lives. Teen suicide has been a problem in our county for a long time, but the pact that a group of girls made recently should sound the alarm that we need to let everyone know that each person is of immeasurable worth and their life matters. A lot of times, living the life that God gave us is not easy. Everybody goes through difficult, painful and disappointing episodes. Failure, loss and rejection are common experiences. For some people, their very existence is defined by suffering and hardship. Depression, abuse and loneliness can push a person over the edge. That becomes dangerous for people who define their life by their circumstances, accomplishments and possessions. Others define their life by who they are — their identity and individuality. They find strength in their understanding of who they are so they can face their circumstances, sometimes enduring them and waiting until they pass and other times facing the challenges and beating them.

The most important declaration that your life matters is broadcast throughout the Holy Scriptures and is taught by most of the churches in our town. Before the world was created, God knew your name. When you were being knit together in your mother’s womb it was by a divine design, which we call DNA. God breathed the breath of life into you when you took your first breath so that you would be alive at this time in history. He wanted you to be alive now so He could invite you into His plan of redemption of this world. Before you were even interested in Him, he died for you for all the wrong you have ever done or will do, then filled you with supernatural abilities by His Spirit so you could make a difference in your world, in

your way like nobody else could. When you are finished He promised to come back for you but in the meantime, He is preparing a place for you in Heaven where all the wrongs will be made right, where tears will be wiped away and bad guys won’t even be present. So from before creation and after all is done, God knows your name and loves you personally. It is everyone’s choice to live life from that point of view, get a fresh dose of God’s acceptance and gain an advantage over their circumstances. The way we do that is to avoid the incorrect patterns and listen to the truth, over and over again. Comparing ourselves to others is the most common mistake that sets us in a bad pattern. There is always somebody with more money, or a loftier status, or better looking or has the most friends and the best opportunities. Some people seem to have all of those things and that can really make us mad because living by comparison always causes us to doubt our worth. Looking for approval of others is another bad pattern because it makes us vulnerable to what other people think of us. Some days that goes pretty good, but

we cannot count on somebody else to tell us our lives matter. Some folks don’t feel good about themselves and gain their worth by pulling everyone else down. Needing to always get it right will drive us crazy if we fall into that pattern. It is good to want to be correct, perform with excellence and never cause anyone pain, but the fact is, we are human and are going to make mistakes. Sometimes it is small and other times it is catastrophic, but either way, it is not the determining factor of whether or not your life matters. My wife found this quote on K-LOVE’s page and reposted it on Facebook. “God, take any doubts I have today and replace them with faith. Any despair, replace with hope. Any darkness, replace with Your light. Any time my thoughts don’t line up with Yours, Lord, show me Truth.” And the truth that we need to hear often, according to God’s revelation in the Scriptures, is “Your life matters.”

without food or shelter. They rigged a pulley system to carry food, medicine, and supplies to people stranded on the other side of Little James Creek and built impromptu bridges with donated lumber. In Boulder, the University of Colorado football team swapped helmets for hairnets and served hot meals to first responders and families who had been evacuated. In Miliken, a farmer turned a floodgate valve to divert overflowing waters away from homes and into his own crops. These stories of teamwork and resilience are ones that politicians in Washington would do well to follow. Congress has failed to pass a farm bill or take action to fix our broken immigration system. It

has not made progress on an energy plan or taken serious steps to improve our infrastructure or education system. Now the debate has spiraled into a shouting match risking the full faith and credit of our country and we’ve had the first shutdown of our government in 17 years. When Coloradans faced a crisis they came together, rolled up their sleeves, and went to work. Washington should do the same and reach across the aisle to find common-sense, middleground solutions on issues like immigration and our debt and deficit. Democrat Michael Bennet has represented Colorado in the U.S. Senate since 2009.

Dan Hettinger is the founder of The Jakin Group, a ministry of encouragement. You can email him at dan@welcometothebigleagues.org.

D.C. should follow Colorado example As Congress wastes time in endless debate over shutting down the government and allowing the nation to default on its debt, Coloradans are working together and recovering in the aftermath of unprecedented flooding. The heroism and generosity we’re seeing in Colorado both during and after the flood is in stark contrast to the ideology and bluster coming out of Washington. In Colorado, we had a year’s worth of rainfall in one day alone. It led to historic floods that caused unimaginable destruction. Most tragic of all, we lost nine lives. In the face of this tragedy and destruction we witnessed the resilience, courage, and selflessness of Coloradans from across the state. It has been inspiring.

OBITUARIES Albrecht

“It’s not hard to make decisions when you know what your values are.” It’s when we don’t put our stake in the ground and waffle about everything we need to do that places us in a perpetual state of limbo and unable to move forward. And we usually choose not to take a stand or make a decision because we are operating out of a mode of fear or scarcity rather than a mode of growth or abundance. What are you waiting for? What’s the big or even little decision that is holding you back? I would love to hear all about it at gotonorton@gmail.com and when we resolve to leave the “tweener” in us behind, it really will be a better than good week.

quired to avoid abuses of the government. It’s a great system and it works across the U.S. … almost. John Carson, the current school board president in Douglas County, told Colorado Community Media: “The laws of Colorado … are such that local school boards have tremendous autonomy and authority …” And the board has not missed an opportunity to show how autonomous and egomaniacal they are. The latest transgression is their abuse of the Douglas County Education Foundation. The foundation, now under board control, paid $50,000 to William Bennett to write a non-factual paper and spend a couple hours in front of the South Metro Denver Chamber of Commerce praising the board’s “accomplishments.” It’s time for the board to be checked, balanced, and bounced — NOW! Vote out these pompous incumbents and return Dougco schools to greatness … before it’s too late. Andrew Barnard Highlands Ranch

castle pines mayoral candidates

Huff wants to stay on task

Hall calls for fiscal discipline

Jeffrey Huff, Castle Pines’ current mayor, grew up in Ohio, spending much of his time reading books and aiming for a career in law. Huff received a bachelor’s degree in political science from Ohio State University and then went on to law school. Huff loved mountains and outdoor activities and so established his life in Colorado after graduation. He now does financial planning, starting his own company a year ago after being with Morgan Stanley for 24 years. He moved to Castle Pines in 2001 and got involved in various volunteer activities — including the effort to incorporate the community because he said he thinks having local, close representation makes for a more responsive government. The most important thing to him, though, is spending time with his daughters. Colorado Community Media asked the following questions of Castle Pines’ candidates for office. Why are you seeking this office? As mayor for the past four years I have accomplished a great deal, but more remains to be done. We have put the city on a firm financial foundation and a solid path to success. Starting a new city is a lot like starting a new business. There are growing pains at first and then the people and processes begin to click. We have established the departments of Public Works, Community Development, Finance, City Clerk and hired professional staff members for each. We have some major new amenities on the near horizon: a new library and recreation facility. I’d like to get those built. What makes you the best person for the job? Experience. Being effective in this job

When Dana Hall, 42, was a child, she would pretend to write up contracts and sell homes for fun. She went on to get a business-administration degree from Colorado State University, and then get into mortgage banking. She also owns a company she started, Admin Solutions, which provides virtual administrative support to companies. In 2004, Hall moved to Castle Pines, a quiet, safe country setting, especially compared with her last home on the 10th tee and a busy intersection in Highlands Ranch. She lost her husband to cancer in 2009, which she said resulted in her discovering a depth of strength and courage — and to be a model for her two children, and now a stepson. She remarried recently. Colorado Community Media asked the following questions of Castle Pines’ candidates for office. Why are you seeking this office? I am running for mayor of Castle Pines because I love our community and because I believe I have the collaborative leadership experience, vision and passion to restore fiscal discipline and public trust in our city government and in the core services it provides. As mayor of Castle Pines, I intend to accomplish three primary objectives: • Substantially improve street maintenance, • Build community consensus around if, how, and under what conditions the city should authorize the location, design, financing, and construction of any possible recreation center. We Need A Plan! • Authorize an outside independent financial audit of all city finances to reveal exactly how much revenue. What makes you the best person for the job?

means working toward consensus and achieving compromise. We have some strong-willed and opinionated people on council so it is not always easy. I’ve served on the board of directors for many organizations, here in Castle Pines and elsewhere. I’ve learned that even if I don’t get my way, it’s important to move on and work the next issue. We are here to solve problems, not create them. It’s easy to run on a platform for Huff change: but in reality, there are six other members of city council whose votes count just as much. What do you believe is the most important issue facing your city and how will you approach it, if elected? Our history has been one of resolving small issues, one at a time. For instance, we pulled together different organizations to build Elk Ridge Park. We ended the litigation with the CPN Metro District. We designed and implemented a street improvement plan. These were all big challenges at the time. The majority of our revenues are derived from the business community that submits sales tax dollars to the city as well as from consumers who dine and shop in Castle Pines. We have the lowest total sales tax rate of any city in Douglas County, so we have to deliver more with less. We need to utilize those tax dollars where they are most effective. We must be doing this right since Castle Pines ranked 17th nationally in CNN Money Magazine’s 2013 Best Places to Live and ranked 3rd Best Suburban Place to Live in Colorado in a Coldwell Banker survey.

I ask for your support for mayor of Castle Pines in large part because I believe that I possess the collaborative leadership experience, vision and passion required to restore fiscal discipline and public trust in our city government and in the core services it provides. What do you believe is the most important issue facing your city and how will you approach it, if elected? When elected mayor I would request an OUTHall SIDE INDEPENDENT FINANCIAL AUDIT and forecast be completed. How do we align city spending with community priorities? Can our city afford to properly maintain its streets and pay for its deferred street maintenance backlog? To what degree can our city afford to design, build and operate a recreation center? Without a thorough financial audit, we can’t know. The city budget is roughly $3.8 million. Aside from salaries and benefits for a handful of hard-working city staff, where does the money go? I respectfully suggest that an outside, independent financial audit will reveal the answers we need and will inform all future decisionmaking. So, at the risk of being redundant, if elected mayor, my first action item will be to collaborate with council to authorize an outside independent financial audit of all city finances. Audit findings will serve as the basis to direct more revenue to street maintenance, to pay for the existing deferred street maintenance backlog, and to responsibly apply each dollar of city revenue to community priorities.

castle pines treasurer candidate

Fisher is ‘numbers and logic guy’ Gregg Fisher was often told by teachers he had a high IQ, but the comment that meant a lot to him was in adulthood when an employer told him that it was hard to find someone of his “character and integrity.” Fisher spent part of his childhood at Lowry Air Force Base, where his father was based. Fisher eventually developed a career in computer science, network design and sales. He started his own busiFisher ness three years ago. He lives in Castle Pines with his wife, Kimberly, and they have three children, one still at home. He thinks there’s no other place like Castle Pines, and with his background in logic and numbers, he wants to be a part of creating a sustainable future and master plan for the city. Fisher is running unopposed for treasurer. Colorado Community Media asked the following questions of Castle Pines’ candidates for office.

Why are you seeking this office? I feel that it is an excellent opportunity to serve the community and have a positive influence on the future of our city What makes you the best person for the job? I’m a numbers and logic guy, which I feel is a good trait for the office of treasurer. I’m also very capable of approaching situations with a fresh eye and an unbiased attitude. What do you believe is the most important issue facing your city and how will you approach it, if elected? As our city and infrastructure age, it is critical that we recognize and prepare for the challenges that face us in the coming years. The specific problems must be identified and a solid, clear, and viable plan must be created and put in motion to address those challenges while maintaining a balance between well managed growth and the unique character and charm of our city. If elected, I will provide the transparency and candor that the position would benefit from as well as being an advocate for positive change where needed.

CASTLE PINES CITY COUNCIL CANDIDATES, WARD 3

Addlesperger wants better planning

Edwards stresses residential concerns

Charles Roger Addlesperger, a University of Arizona graduate with a marketing degree, worked for Bristol-Myers in new products before eventually becoming the land-acquisition manager for a major homebuilder. He and his wife, Candy, moved to Castle Pines in 1986 and he served on the first Castle Pines North Metropolitan District board. He has been involved in such things as working to get a library and parks and says he wants to get involved again in decision-making to help keep this desirable community desirable. He’s worried the city could become a place of strip malls in light of recent annexations involving lands that have heavy commercial zoning. Colorado Community Media asked the following questions of Castle Pines’ candidates for office. Why are you seeking this office? I have been a resident of Castle Pines North for 27 years and recently have become concerned about the direction the city is going. City government doesn’t seem to be engaged with the residents. There is little communication with constituents regarding the status of the city and what is planned for our future. What makes you the best person for the job? EXPERIENCE. I have spent the past 40 years in the development business

Jaime Edwards, a former Federal Reserve Bank bank examiner in California, with degrees in economics and finance, can remember as a child starting a bank in her family’s home and having an authentic receipt book to use at her lemonade stand — and always being entrepreneurial. In Castle Pines, recently appointed to a vacant Ward 3 seat that she wants to keep, she said she’s devoted to her family and community service and has started a small business. She wants to increase communication and partnership among different entities and the city — a city with no debt that she thinks is well-managed. Colorado Community Media asked the following questions of Castle Pines’ candidates for office. Why are you seeking this office? As current Ward 3 councilperson, and past city clerk, re-election as councilperson is an opportunity to make meaningful and immediate contributions to the continued success of the local government within the City of Castle Pines. I have the time, values and commitment necessary, to remain a dedicated and integral participant within our surrounding cities and volunteer community. I am extremely involved in many organizations throughout the city including the schools, government entities, the chamber, churches, and local businesses.

working with various state, counties and municipalities. I have managed and negotiated several annexations and development agreements and understand the needs of both the city and developers. For the past 26 years I have been elected to and served on several metropolitan districts. This has given me experience in the planning, management and financing of governmental entities What do you believe is the most important Addlesperger issue facing your city and how will you approach it, if elected? This city was incorporated on a financial plan that shows many assumptions that have not come to fruition. The revenue sources were overstated and costs were under-projected. The infrastructure of this city is nearing its expected life and there is no existing plan showing when replacement is needed or how much it is going to cost. The plan as of today is to keep pouring money into quick fixes, which is a waste of residents’ money. A plan has to be developed that shows what our future costs are and how the city is going to pay these costs. The lack of these projections is unfair to the residents and impacts their future home values and quality of life.

MILESTONES

CASTLE PINES CITY COUNCIL CANDIDATE, WARD 1

Rex Lucas has history as volunteer Rex Lucas, 68, an Air Force retiree with a business degree, specialized in aeromedical rescues and was a part of the hurried removal of American prisoners of war in 1973 before the North Vietnamese could change their minds about releasing them. He also helped with the emergency retrieval of an ill doctor in adverse weather conditions from Antarctica. He liked having daily difficult problems to solve. Since moving from California to Colorado in 2003 when his wife, Donna, accepted a job here, he has volunteered on homeowners association boards and currently serves on Castle Pines’ planning commission. He also volunteers for the USO and travels to places he’s never been — and is a daily exerciser, with a precise running, swimming and weightlifting routine. He is a write-in candidate for city council and is running unopposed. Colorado Community Media asked the following questions of Castle Pines’ candidates for office. Why are you seeking this office? I was asked to run by a friend and cur-

I do not consider myself to be better qualified than other residents of my ward. My qualifications to be considered include years Lucas of volunteer community service and an interest in the well-being of Castle Pines. What do you believe is the most important issue facing your city and how will you approach it, if elected? I believe Castle Pines is great place to live. I am concerned about the plans for future development and the desire to maintain the community as is. I intend to listen to what is presented to the council and vote for what best serves the city and its residents.

What makes you the best person for the job? My diverse background as a former Federal Reserve Bank examiner and supervisory analyst combined with my entrepreneurial spirit enables my understanding of the challenges facing local business owners. As formerly stated, I am extremely involved within the city. Since moving here, I have established a goal to commit to public service and community Edwards events in the hopes of reaching as many residents as possible in an effort to communicate city information and listen to their concerns. As a proud and faithful mother and wife, I look forward to continuing my outreach. What do you believe is the most important issue facing your city and how will you approach it, if elected? As a councilperson, I represent a voice to bring concerns and praise from the community from which I was elected to the city council and mayor. Residents are concerned about renewable water, infrastructure, growth and development, home values and school performance among other factors. I intend to continue to make residential concerns the main priority during my term.

castle pines city council candidates, ward 2

labossiere wants more transparency Resa Labossiere, 48, director of business operations for a Fortune 500 company, said she learned life was short and to make the most of it after breaking her back in an accident at age 16 and spending months recuperating. She got a finance degree from California State University and worked for a time as a consultant until deciding to live overseas for a while. After moving there she found work implementing a new financial system for an international company. Labossiere, who moved to Castle Pines with her husband in 2004, led the 2010 effort in Castle Pines to overturn city council’s Urban Renewal Authority plan that she said research showed was just a tool for developers to increase housing densities. If elected, she hopes to help create a more transparent operation and solve looming needs such as street rehabilitation. Colorado Community Media asked the following questions of Castle Pines’ candidates for office. Why are you seeking this office? I am running for Castle Pines City Council Ward 2. My priorities are to focus on what matters to the residents of Caste Pines, to increase transparency and to re-engage our community. For more information, please visit www.resalabossiere.com. What makes you the best person for the job?

I value diversity of thought and background. I have the courage to speak up for what I believe is right. And I’m motivated to help make our community even more exceptional than it already is. What do you believe is the most important issue facing your city and how will you approach it, if elected? It is time for a reality check. City council Labossiere seems to believe that investments they have made in our roads is sufficient, yet you only have to drive Monarch or Castle Pines Parkway to see that the roads still need a lot of work. Can we afford to really maintain the streets and operate the rest of the city’s vital functions without raising taxes? No one knows, and that is the biggest issue. If elected, I will work to make all aspects of our city government open to public scrutiny. City spending, forecasted revenues and costs should be known and open to the public in a timely and easily accessible way. City council should engage in informed decision-making by having honest, complete and factual information available to both the elected officials and the public. The simple question “Where does my money go?” should be just as simple to answer.

Graczyk calls for residents to guide city Michael Graczyk, 66, was born and raised in the Chicago area, and majored in physics at Ohio’s John Carroll University. He worked for United Airlines for 24 years and then eight years for Echostar Communications. He has an extensive IT background, and has had leadership roles in projects involving building large computer sites. He and his wife, Stephanie, have two grown children. Their daughter, Jennifer, is director of quality systems for Abbott Labs in Chicago, and their son, Scott, is an ASE certified master technician working in Denver for Road Safe. For fun, he is involved in drag racing. He and his son have built a highly modified 1973 Pontiac Firebird. He is a write-in candidate for city council. Colorado Community Media asked the following questions of Castle Pines’ candidates for office. Why are you seeking this office? The reason I have chosen to become a part of the political process is based on several things; first, I have been a resident of Forest Park for over 15 years and as such, I am committed to the success and growth of our community, second, I have experienced the challenges of our transition into incorporation, and third, I have a strong desire to help establish the positive direction of the city through

guidance by its RESIDENTS. What makes you the best person for the job? Trying to satisfy everyone’s definition of “Best Person for the Job” would be close to impossible as each individual would have a unique response if asked what qualities they would feel would make someone best for the position. I have never held any type of political Graczyk office and do not have any hidden agenda or political commitment to interfere with the responsibility of listening to the residents and carrying their ideas as well as complaints to the city council. What do you believe is the most important issue facing your city and how will you approach it, if elected? The outcome of our city’s incorporation was not always what I and many of my neighbors had anticipated. If given the opportunity, I will do my best to address the most important issue of ensuring that decisions made by and the direction taken by the city council will address the wants, needs and concerns of the people the city.

Costs uncertain in 51st-state plan

Secession might leave urban areas better off

areas in the state. By those measures, Colorado’s attitude might be: Can’t we just all get along? In addition to the 10 northeast Colorado counties that have a secession vote on November’s ballot, Moffat County in far northwest Colorado also will vote on whether to leave. But Moffat apparently wants to become Baja Wyoming. I-News at Rocky Mountain PBS analyzed census, budget, crime and voter records to develop profiles of a new 51st state and a truncated Colorado. Suffice it to say, Colorado would no longer be considered a square state. And, of course, neither would Wyoming, with its new Moffat County panhandle. Residents of the 11 counties will decide next month whether to start the fraught-with-difficulty political journey to leave Colorado and, in the case of the northeast counties,

By Burt Hubbard I-News at Rocky Mountain PBS

Colorado could stand to benefit financially and would see some improvement in the educational and economic standings of its remaining citizens if 10 northeastern counties should make good on their threat to secede and carve out a new state of North Colorado. By those measures, Colorado’s attitude might be: Have fun out there, new state! But what’s left of Colorado would also lose half of its lucrative oil wells, much of its prime farmland and some of the lowest crime

A tractor motors past cornfields recently near Eaton in Weld County, which has been the epicenter of a movement to form a 51st state from 10 northeastern Colorado counties. Photo by I-News at Rocky Mountain PBS become a new state. West Virginia was the last state to manage such a separation, in 1863, during the Civil War, a move validated solely by a proclamation from President Lincoln, according to a state website. It isn’t that easy today. One impediment: Colorado and both house of the U.S. Congress would have to agree. But proponents of secession said rural Coloradans are tired of having unpopular laws like stronger gun control and mandatory alternative energy standards forced on them by a Front Range-dominated state Legislature. “What has happened is the urbanization of America has disenfranchised the rural population,” said Jeffrey Hare, one of the organizers of the 51st State Initiative.

Bills caused anger

John Straayer, political science professor at Colorado State University, said bills from the last legislative session appear to have aroused animosity toward the legislature. “In terms of the immediate trigger, guns and probably SB 252 (requiring use of alternative energy resources),” Straayer said. “They allege that it is more than that, not being treated properly by the Legislature on a variety of issues for a long time.” The eventual exodus, if the constitutional minefield could be navigated, would create a North Colorado of about 336,000 people, supplanting Wyoming as the least populous state in the U.S. It would leave Colorado with about 4.7 million residents, dropping it to the 23rd most populous state behind Alabama. One of the key questions is the financial viability of a new state and its impact on the remainder of Colorado. Financially, state government in Colorado would probably come out ahead if the 11 counties left, according to I-News estimates of how much revenue the state receives from the counties compared to expenditures there. The counties generate between $360 million and

$400 million yearly for the state in sales tax, state income tax and the state’s share of vehicle registration fees. That accounts for about three-fourths of the revenue Colorado receives from those counties each year from taxes and fees. Extrapolating forward, that would be the equivalent of between $500 million and $560 million in revenue lost to the state from the 11 counties. On the other side of the ledger, the state spends about $520 million in the 11 counties for K-12 school funding, incarcerating criminals from the counties, providing Medicaid, running the courts and the state’s share of running one university and three community colleges. Those costs equal about 84 percent of the state’s overall general fund spending in the secession-voting counties. Extrapolating forward, that would come to total spending of about $620 million. Bottom line: Colorado spends between about $60 million and $120 million or more per year in the 11 counties than the revenue it receives. “There’s still a lot of (state) money coming back to these counties,” said Brian Lewandowski, economist with the Leeds Business School at the University of Colorado at Boulder. By comparison, a similar analysis of Denver showed the county provides more tax and fee revenue to the state than it gets back in state funding for programs. “You’ve got densely populated areas where there is a lot of wealth like Denver County and Douglas County,” said Lewandowski.

Figures in dispute

However, advocates of secession disagree with the I-News analysis and point to their own report that shows the counties break even with state government on spending and revenue. The differences between the two analyses involved spending figures on K-12 education, revenue from the state income tax and severance taxes from oil and gas development. Gov. John Hickenloop-

er’s office had no comment on what financial impact the secession would have on Colorado. The I-News analysis did not examine how much money the counties currently receive directly from oil and gas operations. That’s money that would help run a new state. More than half of Colorado’s oil and gas wells would reside in the new state, mostly in Weld. “It’s pretty amazing the amount of dollars that it generates,” Lewandowsk said. Weld County alone gets 55 percent of its property tax revenue from exploration. That has resulted in a current $100 million county contingency fund and no debt, said Weld County Commissioner Sean Conway, a leading proponent of secession who previously was chief of staff to former U.S. Sen. Wayne Allard, RColo. During the recent flooding, the county was able to reopen its roads on its own. “We’ve done this on our own,” Conway said. “We haven’t got help from the state.” Not all politicians in Weld County want to secede. Tom Norton, the mayor of Greeley and former Republican president of the state Senate, wrote in a column in The Greeley Tribune last summer that, while some state decisions have hurt rural Colorado, collaboration with the state, not secession, is the solution. Demographically and politically, the two states — North Colorado and Colorado — would look quite different, the I-News analysis showed. North Colorado would be predominantly Republican, with the fifth highest ratio of Republicans to Democrats in the U.S. Meanwhile, Democrats in Colorado would outnumber Republicans for the first time in years. “We would have a red state and a blue state,” Straayer said.

Education disparity

The would-be exiting counties are generally poorer and less educated

than the rest of Colorado, according to Census data. College education levels in North Colorado would be on par with those of Tennessee and Oklahoma, while college graduation rates would rise in Colorado to the second highest in the nation. North Colorado would have among the lowest crime rates in the nation, ranking from fifth to 11th lowest among states for rape, robbery, burglary and car theft. Colorado’s overall crime rates would go up, with motor vehicle theft rates almost three times higher than those of the new 51st state. North Colorado would have a higher percentage of families among its households, be younger on average and have a higher percentage of Latinos. In fact, the new state would have the sixth highest percentage of Hispanics in the U.S. But its black population would only be about 1 percent, the fifth lowest in the U.S. And then, of course, there are the issues of marijuana and tornadoes. Legal pot would stop at old Colorado’s borders. About half of the state’s tornados touch down every year in the counties that would leave Colorado. Even if approved by the counties involved, secession would appear to remain a long shot, as it would require both Colorado and federal approval. State ratification could come in a citizens’ initiative — such as the one that legalized recreational marijuana — in a referred ballot measure from the legislature, or in an act of the legislature, said Richard Collins, professor at the University of Colorado School of Law. If that happened, it would then need approval by both houses of Congress. I-News is the public service journalism arm of Rocky Mountain PBS and collaborates with news outlets across Colorado.

Theater offers stray of hope

Rusted Root to headline Gothic Band tours behind its seventh studio album By Ryan Boldrey

rboldrey@ourcoloradonews.com Celebrating more than two decades of music and touting its 2012 release, “The Movement,” Rusted Root is bringing its hard-touring act to Englewood. The Pittsburgh-based outfit, which broke onto the scene in the early 1990s with its second album “When I Woke” — highlighted by the songs “Send Me on My Way,” “Back to the Earth,” “Ecstasy,” and “Beautiful People” — will take the stage Oct. 18 at The Gothic Theatre in Englewood, along with supporting acts Rob Drabkin and Goodnight, Texas. A popular act throughout the midto-late 1990s, Rusted Root, known for its unique blend of experimental world beat folk fusion, has never ceased touring relentlessly, and after taking a seven-year break from recording between 2002 and 2009, is calling “The Movement,” its seventh studio release, “a career album.” “I think this one kind of puts it all together for us, and for some people,

it finally says, `This band is going to be there for the long haul,’” said Michael Glabicki, the group’s lead vocalist and primary songwriter. From the rootsy, danceable “Monkey Pants” to the darker, drum-driven title track to the introspective “Something on My Mind,” Rusted Root has come full circle, tying together years of work and experimentation, Glabicki says. “I think we are at that point where you kind of say, `Wow, there’s a lot to work with in what we have already become accustomed to and sort of mastered. Then when we put it all together, it becomes very expressive, naturalsounding and fun,” he said. Whether in the studio or on the

stage, Glabicki said he is having more fun now than at any point in Rusted Root’s 21-year career together. One of three original members still in the band, along with percussionist Liz Berlin and bassist Patrick Norman, Glabicki says the band has at last found its drummer in Preach Freedom, and guitarist Dirk Miller has been a fantastic addition to the group, since replacing guitarist Colter Harper six months ago. The group is averaging about 160 shows a year, and in addition to performing, is currently working on a rockumentary and beginning to write for an eighth studio album. Glabicki’s first solo release is also due out sometime next summer, which he says will be a very intimate collection of songs performed with a core trio he has been working with for the past two years. “It’s going to be a whole lot more of me,” he said. “I’m stripping it down to more sparse acoustic songs, while part of the record will be a lot more rocking.” For more information or to purchase tickets, visit www.RustedRoot.com or www.gothictheatre.com. Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 day of show. Showtime is 8 p.m. Oct. 18 at The Gothic Theatre, 3263 S. Broadway in Englewood.

An array of shows in lone Tree Arts center releases its program for fall

Several years ago Mr. On The Town — the No. 1 dog lover in our house — and I attended the play “Sylvia” at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts. The A.R. Gurney play is about an empty-nest couple who take in a stray dog. I won’t give away the ending but this comedy will tug at your heartstrings. I guarantee you’ll love this play! “Sylvia” plays from Nov. 7-17 at the LTAC. Tickets are available at www.LoneTreeArtsCenter.org or by calling 720-5091000. Kim Staunton, a winner of a Denver Post Ovation Award, Henry Award, and Westword’s Best of Denver among her many local theater performances, stars as Kate. Two Tony Award nominees, director Randal Myler and Jonathan C. Kaplan (as Greg), also are part of the cast and crew. Denver favorites Jamie Ann Romero (Sylvia) and Randy Moore (Tom, Phyllis and Leslie) round out a stellar cast.

Boys and Girls Club opens

The opening of the new Nancy P. Anschutz Center Boys and Girls Club on Tuesday, Oct. 1 was a celebration, despite a horrific shooting just 11 days earlier that left club advocate Terrance Roberts accused of attempted murder. Boldfaced names like Denver Mayor Michael Hancock, Phil and Nancy Anschutz, John and Paige Elway and Jack A. Vickers celebrated the opening of the new center at the Jack A. Vickers Boys & Girls Club. Denver politicos and movers and shakers joined the celebration of a new Park Hill community center that replaced a shopping area torched by a gang in 2008. Boys and Girls Club President and CEO John Aragoni held the sentiments of many in attendance when he said: “The community here had gone through its ups and downs. But we want to recognize its past with an eye on its future.”

Phileas Fogg gets around to Arvada By Sonya Ellingboe

IF YOU GO

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com In a time where one can be almost anywhere in the world in a day or two, the audience has to bring imagination to a play set in a time when travelers devoted a year to circumnavigating the globe. Although Jules Verne was excited about the technological advancements in the 1850s, when there was a Society for the Encouragement of Aerial Locomotion by Means of Heavier-Than-Air-Craft, according to the Arvada Center program, he had to dream and write science fiction about new modes of travel. He wrote about Phileas Fogg (Dustin Bronson), a mid-19th-century wealthy

“Around the World in 80 Days,” produced by Creede Repertory Theatre, plays through Oct. 27 at the Arvada Center’s black box theatre, 6901 Wadsworth Blvd., Arvada. Performances: 7:30 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays; 1 p.m. Wednesdays; 2 p.m. Saturdays, Sundays. Tickets: Arvadacenter.org, 720-898-7200.

nerd, who made a wager with men at his London club that he could go “Around the World in 80 Days.” The Arvada Center presents Creede Repertory Theatre’s witty production of Mark Brown’s play, adapted from the novel, through Oct. 27. It is set in 1872 “in London and around the world.”

As lights go up, the stage has a raked platform with a single rose velvet chair centered on it. It will become a ship and other locations in rapid succession. India, Africa, Asia, Europe … Fogg’s previous servant allows that he has just been fired because the shaving water was the wrong temperature for his excessively structured employer. A replacement, the French Passepartout (Graham Ward), appears, ready to go to work — and to travel, he learns, since Fogg has just made his 20,000-pound bet. The simple platform becomes many destinations as the imaginative choreography by director Charlie Oates carries it to distant lands. The other scenic prop is a large cabinet that becomes an office for

all sorts of characters, mostly played by the versatile Patrick Du Laney. John Arp plays Detective Fix (and others) trailing after Fogg with an arrest warrant. His comic talents are in top form. Caitlin Wise is the fifth member of this talented cast. Among other roles, she is the lovely Aouda, whom Fogg rescues from some Bedouins and, of course, falls for. Fogg remains himself, but other characters in a variety of costumes and with assorted accents, swirl in and out of a fastmoving story. The audience cheered in several especially cleverly staged scenes. Crisp dialogue, imaginative costumes and precise direction contribute to a wellproduced bit of time travel. Suitable for children age 9 and over.

SALOME’S STARS FOR THE WEEK OF OCT 7, 2013

crossword • sudoku

ARIES (Mar 21 to Apr 19) Your Aries charm helps persuade others to listen to your proposal. But it’s still a long way from acceptance, unless you can stand up to the tough questions that are set to follow. TAURUS (Apr 20 to May 20) Plan to share a weekend getaway from all the pressures of your hectic workaday world with a very special someone. You could be pleasantly surprised at what develops. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Your keen insight once again helps you handle a challenging situation with a clearer perception of what it’s really all about. What you learn helps you make a difficult decision. CANCER (Jun 21 to July 22) If you want to steer clear of getting involved in a new family dispute, say so. Your stand might cause hurt feelings for some, but overall, you’ll be respected for your honesty. LEO (July 23 to Aug 22) Expect recognition for your efforts in getting a project into operation. Besides the more practical rewards, your Lion’s heart will be warmed by the admiration of your colleagues. VIRGO (Aug 23 to Sept 22) Set aside time to rid yourself of clutter that might well be drawing down your creative energies. Consider asking someone to help you decide what stays and what goes. LIBRA (Sept 23 to Oct 22) A colleague could make a request that might place you in an awkward position with co-workers. Best advice: Share your concerns with an associate you can trust. SCORPIO (Oct 23 to Nov 21) Your energy levels are way up, allowing you to take on the added challenge of a task you’ve been hoping to secure. Expect this move to lead to an important opportunity. SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 to Dec 21) Your continuing sense of confidence in what you’ve set out to do gives encouragement to others. Expect to see more people asking to add their efforts to yours. CAPRICORN (Dec 22 to Jan 19) You might think it would be best to reject a suggestion others insist would be unworkable. But you might be surprised by what you find if you give it a chance. AQUARIUS (Jan 20 to Feb 18) Changing a decision might disappoint some people, but the important thing is that you be honest with yourself. Don’t go ahead with anything you have doubts about. PISCES (Feb 19 to Mar 20) There could be some fallout from an emotional confrontation that you really should deal with before moving on. Best to start fresh with a clean, clear slate. BORN THIS WEEK: Your honesty not only helps you make decisions for yourself, but also helps others find the right choices for themselves.

Huskies’ Dunkle 14th at state Valor Christian wins 4A boys golf championship By Jim Benton

jbenton@ourcoloradonews.com The Heritage boys golf team accomplished its mission, as did the golfers from Valor Christian, in the Colorado State High School golf championship tournaments. Heritage turned in the third best score during the second and final day of the Class 5A tournament Oct. 1 at Murphy Creek Golf Course and tied for fifth place in the final standings. Valor Christian, a runner-up in 2012 after losing in a two-hole playoff to Pueblo South, rallied from five shots off the pace after the first round to claim the Class 4A state championship at Hiwan Country Club. “We were tied for sixth (after the first round) and we said if we could get into the top five we’d be happy,” said Heritage coach Nicki Polous. Heritage, led by senior Hunter Lee, carded a 226 during play on the second day that had golfers dealing with 20 mph winds in addition to the course. The Eagles had the third best final-round score behind state champion Regis Jesuit (213) and Arapahoe (223).

Lee finished tied for 10th in the final individual standings with a 4-over-par 148 total after rounds of 75 and 73. Other members of the Heritage team were Riggs Winz (78-74—172), Reese Leiker (78-79—157) and Nick Leibold (77-83—160). Regis finished 23 strokes ahead of second-place Ralston Valley. Cherry Creek wound up third, Arapahoe ninth and Douglas County 12th. Jake Staino shot a 1-over-par 71 in the second round to spark Valor’s comeback. The Eagles fashioned a final-round 225 on the difficult Hiwan course to catch and pass Silver Creek to capture the state title by three shots. Valor had four golfers finish in the top 13 on the individual leaderboard. Staino (77-71) was fourth at 148, Ross Macdonald (75-77) seventh at 152, Josh Seiple (76-78) tied for ninth place at 154 and Coby Welch (79-77) tied for 13th with a 156 total. Lee appeared ready to climb up the leader board during the last day of the 5A tournament after he eagled the 311-yard, par 4 ninth hole. “I was one under going into nine and hit a good chip and it went in,” recalled Lee. “That put me 3-under after nine, but I bogeyed the first three holes on the back nine and birdied one hole. I bogeyed 17, which was the toughest hole because of the wind. “I kind of had a tough time scoring. I missed a lot of easy short putts that I hadn’t missed in previous

rounds where I scored lower, so that kind of hindered my chances of going low for the day. Overall I was striking the ball consistently and I just didn’t score the way I should have or know I can. Our team played pretty consistent. It was a good showing at state.” Lee tied for 10th with Arapahoe’s Sam Marley (74, 74) and Kobe Padilla (73, 75) of Cherry Creek. Defending state champion Kyler Dunkle of Douglas County finished the tournament strong by driving the 440-yard, par 4 18th hole and collecting a birdie. However, that was the highlight for Dunkle, who had rounds of 73 and 76 to wind up tied for 14th with a 149 two-day total. “The first day I played mediocre and the final day I didn’t play very good,” admitted Dunkle. “I was talking to my dad (Rock Canyon coach Jason Dunkle) and he said, it’s your senior year and last year of high school golf, go out and have fun. So I had a lot of fun. I drove 18, which was awesome. I was hitting my driver really well in the final round, I just wasn’t making any putts.” Finishes by other 5A golfers in the top 50 included Cherry Creek’s Cole Edwards (76, 75) and Will Matthews (73, 78) at 151, Austin Hardman of Mountain Vista (79,73 — 152), Russell Otten of Arapahoe (79, 73 — 152), Jackson Burke of Cherry Creek (76, 78 — 154), Ryan Pearson of Highlands Ranch (80, 75 — 155), Mountain Vista’s Chris Raap (77, 80 — 157), Tyler Zhang of Highlands Ranch (77, 80 — 157) and Douglas County’s Nick Smith 76, 84 — 160).

Lack of big plays hurts Douglas County Regis Jesuit takes football game 31-3 By Jim Benton

jbenton@ourcoloradonews.com Douglas County football coach Jeff Ketron insists that there are usually a few plays each game that determine the outcome. Unfortunately for the Huskies, Regis Jesuit was successful on most of those plays in a Continental League game played on a cold night Oct. 4 at Douglas County Stadium. Fifth-ranked Regis rolled to a 31-3 lead before giving up two late touchdowns and earned a 31-16 victory to remain unbeaten

in the league. “Like we talk about, football games usually come down to four or six plays,” said Ketron. “Both teams had that opportunity and they seized that opportunity and unfortunately we were on the short end of it.” Douglas County’s inability to come up with the big plays started late in the second quarter when the Raiders drove 79 yards to score a touchdown with 11 seconds remaining to take a 14-3 halftime lead. The Huskies had three consecutive three-and-outs in the third quarter while Regis scored twice. A field goal on the Raiders’ third possession of the half pushed the visitors ahead 31-3 with 6:40 still to be played in the game. Douglas County couldn’t develop any

consistent offense when the game was close. Trey Smith, the Huskies standout running back who was averaging 197.4 allpurpose yards per game, was limited to 80 yards by the Raiders. Smith rushed for 36 yards on 11 carries, caught one pass for two yards and had 42 yards in kickoff returns. Quarterback Rope Ruel was 12-17-1 for 195 yards, and JP Rubino, who rushed for 56 yards, scored both Huskies touchdowns. Douglas County had trouble stopping the Raiders’ pack of running backs, who kept gaining key yards to keep the chains moving. “We struggled a little bit,” admitted Ketron. “Everybody is beat up at this time of

year. We had some kids that had supreme effort. We played the whole game with four defensive linemen because of some various things. They gave great effort. We just weren’t good enough. “That’s a pretty good team we played. You can’t fault our kids for effort. That’s the score. We’ve got next week. We play at home against ThunderRidge. We’re excited for it. The biggest thing is getting the five wins. That’s important to get into the playoffs. That’s our No. 1 key.” Douglas County, 4-2 overall and 1-1 in the league, plays ThunderRidge, 5-1, 1-1, Oct. 11. Regis, 5-1, 2-0, faces another challenger Oct. 11 when Chaparral, 2-0, 3-3, journeys to Aurora to play the Raiders.

Golden Eagles soar in 5A tennis Vista boys win regional as state tourney approaches By Jim Benton

jbenton@ourcoloradonews.com Mountain Vista easily won the Class 5A Region 5 boys tennis championship and established itself as a team to watch at the state tournament. The Golden Eagles won all seven finals in straight sets Oct. 3 during second day of the regional tournament that was held at Redstone Park. Mountain Vista lost just 23 games during the regional and will now head into the Oct. 10-12 Class 5A state tournament at Gates Tennis Center as a team that could damage the title hopes of perennial state powers Cherry Creek and Fairview. “We are peaking at the right time,” proclaimed Golden Eagles coach Jim Flanigan. “We’ve been the third or fourth best team in the state all year. Cherry Creek and Fairview are the top two teams going into state. I tell the kids all you want to do is put yourself in the best position you can. We’re in that group that could have a chance. “I know that Cherry Creek and Fairview have better teams on paper, but I’ve told our kids that matches are not played on paper. You never know what might happen.” Cherry Creek, Fairview and Mountain Vista qualified their entire teams, and Arapahoe will send players in six of the seven positions. Mountain Vista’s regional champions were Vignesh Senthilvel at No. 1 singles, Ben Antonsen at No. 2 singles, Michael Shin at No. 3 singles, the No. 1 doubles team of Austin Gruszczynski and Vamsi Senthilvel, Maciek Lazarski and Alex Boyarko at No. 2 doubles, Enzo Ortiz and Kobe Holdren at No. 3 doubles and the No. 4 doubles duo of Blake Warner and Ashwin Vaithianathan. Seven of the 11 Vista players have state tournament experience. “I’m expecting tough matches, so I have to get ready mentally, physically,” said Vignesh Senthilvel. “Right now we are playing really well, and if we stay focused and play our game, we will surprise a lot of people at state.” Antonsen is a freshman who has watched the state tournament the past two years. “I’ve gone to the state tournament the past two years to watch the players, to see some good tennis and see what I could learn from it,” he said. Shin, a senior who didn’t play last summer because he was visiting family in Korea, believes the Golden Eagles can be a serious contender at the Gates Tennis Center. “I’m definitely excited to see a lot of people who made it to state from regionals and to be playing higher competition and level of tennis,” Shin said. “Fairview and Cherry Creek are the teams but we have the caliber.” Flanigan has watched his team grow from week to week this season. “I’ve seen the team progress from the beginning of the year,” he said. “The guys are really coming together.” Other Class 5A qualifiers from area schools: No. 1 singles — Zach Fryer, Cherry Creek; Eric Kwiatkowski, Chaparral; Nicholas Farmen, Arapahoe No. 2 singles — Connor McPherson, Cherry Creek; Jake

Ponderosa, Ranch battle to tie in soccer Score 1-1 after two overtimes By Jim Benton

jbenton@ourcoloradonews.com Ponderosa played short-handed but escaped with a 1-1 overtime tie against Highlands Ranch in a Continental League soccer match Oct. 3 at Sports Authority Stadium. Mustangs goalkeeper Kyran Johnson drew his second yellow card with 21:31 remaining in the second half, and Ponderosa was forced to play a player short for the remainder of the game and both 10-minute overtime sessions. The teams traded first-half goals, but it was Ponderosa that picked up its game after being forced to play with 10 instead of 11 players. The Mustangs had several good scoring chances, especially in the overtimes. “We actually played pretty good a man down,” said Ponderosa coach Jim Engels. “We took it to them. Gosh, we hit the bar once. “Usually the strategy when you are a man down would be to play more defensive and maybe just hold on for the tie. We kind of went the opposite way. We felt like we should win and it almost felt like they were sitting back and playing for it. We still wanted to attack. We wanted to win. It felt like we were going to get one at some

point and we came close a lot.” Highlands Ranch coach Danny Main felt his team let down with the man advantage. “I definitely think we played better when we were straight 11 on 11,” admitted Main. “A lot of times when a team goes down a player, they focus more. They have to work harder. They know they have to compensate for one less guy. A lot of times teams will play better with 10 players. “We just had to get it out of our head that we had one more player and it was going to be easier. We had to continue to work like there was an 11th player out there.” When both teams played with 11 players in the first half, Ponderosa took a 1-0 lead when Colton Carr beat a Falcons defender to Johnson’s long punt. Carr got to the ball before diving Highlands Ranch keeper Tyler Londono and scored into an empty net. Jeff Ingell scored on a penalty shot for the Falcons six minutes later to tie the game. “I loved how we played in the first half,” said Main. “I don’t think we’ve played better all season than in the first half. “Mentally we started breaking down, again having one less player to defend, our mentality changed. Everything was directed going forward, it was going to be easier to attack rather than just being patient, moving the ball around and finding spaces.” Despite the tie, Highlands Ranch

stayed close to Rock Canyon in the chase for the league title. Rock Canyon took a 6-0-2 Continental record into the Oct. 8 game against Chaparral at Shea Stadium. Highlands Ranch, which notched a 3-2 non-league overtime win over Doherty Oct. 5, hoped to improve on its 5-1-1 league record in an Oct. 8 contest against Heritage. Highlands Ranch and Rock Canyon play Oct. 10. “Last year was a rejuvenation,” said Main. “We made it all the way to the second round of the playoffs. It was the first time we were in the playoffs for a decade. These guys got a taste of it. They are hungry. “They feel they can do even better this year. The results so far have proved it. It’s not like last year where we were just trying to get into the playoffs. It’s a different mentality. We’ll get to the playoffs, but can we get a high seed and even challenge for a league championship?” Ponderosa is 5-2-1 in the Continental League and also looking for to the state playoffs. “We are just looking for the playoffs,” said Engels. “These teams are all going to the 5A playoffs and we go to the 4A playoffs. So if we know we can play with all these teams we should be OK.” Ponderosa played at Regis Jesuit Oct. 8, with an Oct. 11 game set at 3 p.m. against Legend at Sports Authority Stadium.

“He was a shining star for a lot of people,” Cardenas said. Now suddenly he’s gone. He didn’t smoke, didn’t drink — even when he went with his Dad regularly into the Spur, a town pub and café, it was to buy a soda pop and candy out of the machine, said Pam Ramsour, 53, waitress and bartender. But his good heart wore out, anyway. He reportedly went into a local hospital because of breathing problems, had complications, and in the middle of the night on Sept. 29 died of a heart attack. Now, a town says it’s heartbroken. “He never hurt anyone,” said Jana Medina, a clerk at the Larkspur Country Store. “Why did it have to be him?” “It was quite a shocker to the whole community,” said Larkspur Town Manager Matt Krimmer. Been encouraged anyone who wanted to, to put their flags at half-staff for Boardman that week. So Larkspur’s flag in the town park was

Past numbers had the entire park — with additional phases that would add ball fields and other amenities — costing about $30 million. It’s hoped that Castle Rock Parks and Trails Foundation will be able to raise some private funds to help with that. Jeff Smullen, the town’s superintendent of parks, planning and construction, told the News-Press that with “the current con-

halfway down to honor kindness, as were private flags on either end of town. “I was on many (fire) scenes with him,” said Charles Walden, division chief for the Larkspur Fire Protection District. “I’ve never heard him raise his voice … never complained.” He remembers seeing Rob, who never married, always helping his parents. His dad used an oxygen tank and he’d help him get around. It was pretty much expected everyone would be there for Rob — on Oct. 7 at the 10 a.m. funeral service and burial and then at a reception at the fire department. “It’s going to be really big,” Been said prior to the funeral. The antique fire truck that Boardman was in the process of restoring for parades and such might not be there. But the rest of a major fire department procession planned to be there. Boardman’s gone, and he was the “right arm, left arm, both legs,” for his elderly parents, Cardenas said. But Larkspur knows where his parents live. And the elderly couple has been getting a lot of visits. “I’ve been over there four or five times today,” said one resident.

acreages in Happy Canyon subdivision were OK with it — because of an agreement, attorney and Happy Canyon resident John Goutell said recently. Goutell said that in 2000, Alpert agreed to leave 500 acres as open space from Castle Pines Parkway to Happy Canyon Road along I-25 and call it “The Preserve.” And on the remainder, there was to be a limit of 25 acres of commercial area and about 1,500 homes as well as a golf course and other amenities. And Happy Canyon wouldn’t have to worry about its water wells because the developer was going to help with water issues. It was considered a “reasonable use” of land, Goutell said about the agreement. But as of Sept. 27, the 2000 agreement is no more, Goutell said. He said the developer used two law firms working full-time, spending more than $600,000 in legal costs, to plead their case to an arbitrator about why the agreement should be terminated. The Happy Canyon homeowners association — with about a $10,000 legal budget and no legal help at first until Goutell moved into Happy Canyon and heard about the already underway arbitration — lost. Everything. “It was the big developer against the little HOA,” Goutell said. “(Happy Canyon) doesn’t get anything. … It’s such a tragedy.” Goutell said Happy Canyon, a development of about 500 acres, made up mainly of two-acre lots but some as large as 35 acres, is now entitled to nothing — no control over densities, no help with water, traffic or other impacts. He was told Alpert would be a good neighbor, but when he asked for that assurance on paper, he was refused. And now a much bigger project is in the works. With arbitration behind the developer, there now can be an even bigger development — with 10 times the commercial area allowed in the Happy Canyon agreement now about 250 acres instead of 25 acres — and up to 2,500 homes. The developer can now have those higher densities because in 2009 Castle Pines annexed the property into the city and OK’d that heavier zoning to be allowed if and when the Happy Canyon agreement was ever terminated, Goutell said. There is no plan for a golf course now — and no 500 acres of open space. About 100 acres along I-25, just south of Castle Pines Parkway exit, is designated for mixed uses. The rest, 400 acres, south of the 100 mixed-

and graded for facilities that won’t be built as expected in this phase, the town will need to reseed that bare ground, about 30 acres — which is expected to cost with labor and materials about $180,000. “It’s important to stabilize the area for a few reasons: Colorado’s climate, erosion control,” Smullen told Colorado Community Media in an email. “And it still provides usable recreation areas for our residents.” Smullen said the total re-seeding cost “includes re-seeding, soil amendments, mulch and erosion control measures.”

use acres, is no longer open space, but is being called “farm zoning,” which allows for barns, storage and other things. But that farm zoning isn’t necessarily permanent. “Situations can change,” Nickless said. But he said the intention is to “develop the plan within the confines of our current zoning.” “I don’t have the impression that the developer is going to reach out to us,” said Michael Anderson, president of the Happy Canyon Homeowners Association, who saw the situation as a David and Goliath scenario, with the giant winning. “I certainly welcome that contact.” Goutell said both sides won’t ever know the reasons for why the arbitrator, a former dean of the University of Denver’s law school, ruled the way he did because the homeowners association could only afford to pay for the cheaper “yes or no” decision and not the more expensive “reasoned decision,” which would have given a written explanation about the decision. Goutell said the developer’s legal team somehow successfully argued at the arbitration hearing that because 146 acres of The Canyons had been condemned during the past development of the Rueter-Hess Reservoir, the 2000 agreement could be terminated. Goutell said their position was that a section in the agreement addressed allowing termination of the agreement if a court invalidated the property’s zoning. And they said the taking of land for the dam created “a domino effect that effectively invalidated their zoning,” Goutell said. Goutell said courts have invalidated zoning at times, but his position in this case is that the eminent-domain condemnation of a “tiny percentage” of land didn’t constitute an invalidation of The Canyons’ zoning. Also, he said the Alpert family received $5 million in compensation for that condemned land, more than they could have made from the dozen housing lots. Nickless commented that the arbitration “was a private matter, agreed upon. We want to respect it was a private matter.” Castle Pines Councilmember James Einolf told the News-Press he thinks “this is a sad day for homeowners in Colorado. Apparently, covenants that `run with the land in perpetuity’ actually last only until someone with enough time and money comes along and takes you to court. “I’m ashamed that the City of Castle Pines ever entered into this pact with The Canyons, and that we now stand to profit — or at least, to appear to profit — from the misfortune of the homeowners of Happy Canyon,” he said, referring to the million dollars the city is to receive from the developer to lessen the city’s impacts as it has to maintain the development’s streets, among other responsibilities.
