Castle Rock’s ‘amazing’ clerk saluted for work Misare honored by group of peers around state By Virginia Grantier

vgrantier@ourcoloradonews.com It’s a place of symmetry — clean, no loose papers, books on shelves just so, even the stapler on the counter didn’t seem casually placed, squared to the counter edge and to the squared stack of nearby notebooks, nothing cockeyed, misaligned, askew, in the office of the recently selected Colorado Municipal Clerk of the Year: Sally Misare, Castle Rock’s town clerk. She smiled and said she can be a little “OCD.” Other people have other descriptions of her. “She’s amazing,” said Wendy Heffner, Littleton’s city clerk, and president of the Colorado Municipal Clerk Association, the 275-member organization that picked Misare for the honor. “This is a big thing in our world,” Heffner said. Heffner, who described the clerk position as being the “organizer of the city,” said clerks from around the state know Misare is the clerk to call if they have a question about just about anything. “She’s one of the most organized and

Castle Rock doesn’t just have a good town clerk — it has the best this year. Sally Misare, pictured in her office, was surprised recently with the honor from the Colorado Municipal Clerks Association. Photo by Virginia Grantier well-loved clerks in our organization,” Heffner said. “She’s the go-to gal when you have a question … about elections, licensing … marijuana licensing. She’s an amazing lady.”

Misare said she didn’t notice anything unusual going on in the days leading up to the Nov. 26 town council meeting, but plans were being made. Clerk continues on Page 11

Castle Rock Senior Center will have to make cuts — including to its transportation program that gives seniors rides to medical appointments, grocery stores and other needs — if it can’t make up an expected $50,000 shortfall in federal grants and private foundations, the center’s president and its executive director said recently. “If we cannot come up with our needed funding, then we will have to cut services and/or programs,” Terry Shipley, the senior center’s executive director, told Colorado Community Media. In addition, Rich Smoski, the senior center’s board president, said the 2014 budget level they’re trying to reach, $389,000, which is the same amount as the 2013 budget, is just to sustain current services, not to grow. Smoski said the county’s senior population is growing and the needs are growing. He said a few years ago, the transportation program with 50 volunteer drivers and nine vehicles — which gives rides to mostly low-income seniors — gave about 450 rides each month. “We’re doubling that, now,” he said. He also said the senior center has 800 dues-paying members, but more than 50 percent of the seniors given rides aren’t members. Smoski said the service is important in this area that doesn’t have public transportation, for seniors who “don’t have the means to get to the grocery store” and other locations. To try to make up some of the shortfall, the senior center this year will be one of the nonprofits that people can donate to on Dec. 10, Colorado Gives Day, which is an initiative to increase philanthropy in Colorado through online giving. Credit card and processing fees are covered by sponsors. Colorado Gives Day, at ColoradoGives. org, is sponsored by the Community First Foundation and FirstBank, and last year raised $15.7 million for Colorado nonprofits, according to a press release. The senior center is one of 29 nonprofits in the Douglas County Non-Profit Coalition that’s participating. To learn more about the coalition, and get links to Colorado Gives Day, go to DouglasCountyGives.com. Smoski said the senior center, which services seniors in all parts of the county except Parker and Highlands Ranch, can depend on the Town of Castle Rock and Douglas County for about 45 percent of its Cuts continues on Page 11

View of piano is black and white The 74-year-old Knabe grand piano sits silent in the room behind them. But the three women sipping tea at the small dining room table feel the music settle into them with the quiet joy only an old, beloved companion can bring. Music. “It’s like food,” Dee Netzel, 86, says. “I couldn’t imagine life without it.” “It’s a passion,” says Donita Banks, 77, “a compulsion.” The piano belongs to the third woman, the tiniest, just now able to sit at the bench after two months battling a back injury. Rita Jo Tensly, 84, says simply: “I want to die at the piano.” • • • They call themselves “sisters” — Dee from a small Wisconsin town, Rita from New York City and Donita from Pueblo. All classical pianists, a love for music binds them tightly. But what brought them together originally was the Denver alumnae chapter of Sigma Alpha Iota, an international music fraternity for women they joined while in college. Donita, the chapter’s archivist who chronicles the organization’s history in carefully constructed scrapbooks, spreads open an album on the table and points to a picture of smiling women, the SAI Singers. “There’s Dee and there’s me. We had a bicentennial program.” 1976. She turns to another page and another picture. 1995. Rita: “There I am in the front row.” Donita: “We were looking a little younger then.” All three burst into laughter. Another album contains photos of revered member Lela Putney, whose 104th birthday they celebrated in 2008. She left Denver several years ago to live near family and died at 108. Donita added the obituary and stories of her life to the scrapbook. Donita, who joined in 1960 and is one of the longest-running members, is adamant the SAI alumnae chapter was a key ingredient to Lila’s longevity. “What has kept us going,” she says, “has been music, friendship and service.” The chapter has 44 members from their

mid-20s to Dee, the oldest active member. About 25 attend monthly meetings from September to June in homes and churches throughout the metro area, wherever a good piano can be found. “I think one of the neat things about our group now is we are online,” Dee says, “and as careers bring people to our area, they look us up online and they find us.” The website also brings younger women to the graying chapter. Dee: “I love being with young people.” “It keeps me young,” Rita says. Dee: “We really aren’t categorized by age. … Music is just music.” “They like us for what we are,” Rita says. “Musicians.” • • • Donita, an only child, began playing at 7 when her parents brought home an old, Baldwin Acrosonic upright piano, signed by pianist Amparo Iturbi, sister of the famed pianist José Iturbi of Spain. “Really?” Rita asks. “Mmmhmmm,” Donita says, smiling, remembering. “I loved piano from the beginning.” In junior high school, she began accompanying the singers at church. In high school, she played for a singer who performed for service organizations and then was hired to accompany dancers at the Pueblo Conservatory of Music. She attended the University of Colorado on scholarship where a professor introduced her to contemporary music. Her son, her first child, was just seven weeks old when she accepted a job as youth choir 10.25 in.director at a Lakewood church, the start to a career as a freelance musician who combined one-woman shows with

choir directing. “It came to be a way of life,” Donita says. And when she battled breast cancer two years ago, she couldn’t wait to play again. “I had to get back to my music. Yes, I had to get back to my regular life.” Rita was 10 when her parents surprised her with the same piano in her sitting room for her birthday. “I took to it like a duck takes to water,” she says. She attended Juilliard and graduated from the University of Miami in Florida, then moved to Denver in 1953 and taught elementary school music for 28 years. She loves the classical composers. “I just love the way they put the music together. I think about the music, what they were thinking about, why they composed this music.” Her favorites are Debussy and Mozart. She looks at her hands. “My hands are very small.” She fans out her fingers. “So Mozart fits my hands.” Her eyesight is failing. And that is her biggest fear. “I dread the time if I never have any more sight to see the music because I don’t want to stop playing,” she says. “I feel better when I play this beautiful music.” Dee grew up in a poor, rural Wisconsin home. But her mother had inherited a piano. And to keep a mischievous Dee out of trouble, she started her with piano lessons. “I loved the teacher; I loved the music,” Dee says. “Nobody had to make me practice and I never stopped.” She would attend the University of Wisconsin, Madison, on scholarship. Later a staff accompanist at Metropolitan State University for 27 years, Dee began as an elementary and high school music teacher for nine one-room schools in rural Wisconsin that she had to get to in two days. “I’d roar up in my car and teach, then roar up to the next one,” she says. “I would spin around on the roads, I would knock over the mailboxes — I was in such a hurry.” Dee laughs. “I was young.” Rita smiles, taking a sip of tea. “We were

all young at one time.” Dee still practices every day, one of the reasons, she believes, that she doesn’t have any pain in her arthritic hands. Twelve years ago, macular degeneration clouded the sight in her left eye. In August, doctors found the beginning of the disease in her right eye. “I’m surviving,” Dee says and tells Donita and Rita about the musical program she played recently with a friend. “I played practically note-perfect. I’m going to keep going until I can’t see anything.” • • • The stories around the table this day compose a concerto of family remembered and talent ignited, of challenges faced and overcome, of the importance of sharing a singular passion with the world. They also, perhaps mostly, recount a friendship born, nurtured and sealed by the implicit understanding of a love and need for music and the deep happiness it brings. The piano waits across the room. A brass light that cost $100 arches over the music books of Debussy and Chopin resting against the piano rack. Rita’s $400 piano glasses lie on top. Rita: “It was worth it to me, to see the music … so I can play.” And play they will. Of that, there is no doubt. As long as they can, Donita says. Till, Dee concludes, the end. A benefit concert to raise money for “Mending Faces,” which sends doctors to the Philippines to operate on children with cleft palates, will be held Jan. 26 at 3 p.m. at St. Paul Lutheran Church, 1600 Grant St., Denver. The concert is presented by the Denver Alumnae Chapter and Sigma Upsilon Chapter, Sigma Alpha Iota International Music Fraternity. Tickets are $25, $10 for students.

Former teacher sentenced in sex case Victim was 13 when educator began ‘grooming’ process

sault on a child by a person in a position of trust, as well as five each of sexual exploitation of a child and enticement of a child. After initially pleading not guilty, Johnson reached a deal with prosecutors and changed Johnson his plea this September, agreeing to two Class 3 felony counts of sexually exploiting a child and avoiding a trial in the process. “This is the ultimate example of betrayal,” said 18th Judicial District Court Judge Richard Caschette at the Nov. 27 sentencing in Castle Rock. “The community expects and deserves more of its teachers

By Ryan Boldrey

rboldrey@ourcoloradonews.com Former Rocky Heights Middle School teacher Richard Johnson was sentenced to 20 years in prison followed by 20 years in the state’s Sex Offender Intensive Supervised Probation program for sexually exploiting an eighth-grade student in 2011. The 32-year-old Centennial man was arrested in November 2012 and charged with 30 felony counts, including 10 each of sexual assault on a child by a person in a position of trust and patterned sexual as-

and people in a position of trust than was shown here and finds crimes of this nature against children the most repugnant of crimes.” The victim, who said she was 13 when Johnson “began grooming” her, addressed the court at the sentencing, as did both of her parents. The former Highlands Ranch teacher, who sat stone-faced and stared straight ahead throughout the process, refused to speak, but did offer an admission of guilt and a desire to get psychiatric help in a letter that was read by his attorney. “He robbed me of all stability in my life,” said the now-16-year-old Rock Canyon student, stating that Johnson turned her against all her friends and her family

so that he would be the only one she could turn to for emotional support. Once everyone else was gone from her life, she said the relationship quickly turned from an emotional one to one of “constant sex and constant obsessiveness,” and that the former teacher “had to always know where I was, who I was with and what I was doing. All the emotion was gone. The driving force was sex.” “I want him to know I am taking back all that he took from me,” she said. “I want him to know I am disgusted by his actions. I am stronger now than ever before and he needs to know that I fell in love with the man he pretended to be, not the sick man he truly is. ... I’m not Rick’s victim anymore, though. Today I become a survivor.”

crime reports

A MOVEMENT, OF SORTS Tools stolen from garage

A resident of the 8500 block of Gold Peak Lane in Highlands Ranch filed a report with the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office Nov. 15 after noticing that $2,596 worth of tools had been stolen from his garage. Tools included multiple saws and saw blades, drills, bit sets, a cable router, an orbital sander, wrench kit and 38-piece tool kit. There are no suspects at this time.

Man falls victim to scam

A Highlands Ranch man who had never heard of a Nigerian money scam before began sending money to a Nigerian woman in November 2011, assuming it was to invest in an oil business she wanted to start. She led him to

believe that she also had a romantic interest in him and informed him she was going to marry him. He never spoke to her on the phone but traded text messages weekly, and wired her $10,000 from his First Bank account through Western Union before the bank informed him he was being scammed and closed his accounts. He then opened up an account at another bank and wired an additional $2,000. The man contacted police after she texted him to say she had been taken hostage and he needed to wire money so she could be released. The victim has since closed the second bank account.

Thieves hit vehicles

Between the dates of Nov. 19 and Nov. 20 there

were 11 reports of vehicle trespasses in Highlands Ranch and Acres Green, most of which involved the perpetrator stealing items from unlocked vehicles parked outside of homes in the community. Items stolen included mostly iPods and a garage door opener. In Highlands Ranch, vehicles were hit on the 13100 block of Regulus Drive, the 9300 block of South University Boulevard and the 1000 block of Riddlewood Road, while in Acres Green, vehicles were broken into on the 13100 block of Spica Drive in Acres Green, on the 100 block of Olympus Drive, on the 800 block of Mercury Circle in Acres Green, on the 13100 block of Deneb Drive and on the 0-100 block of Pegasus Drive.

New webpage addresses concerns By Ryan Boldrey

rboldrey@ourcoloradonews.com A new page on the Douglas County website has designs on becoming a onestop shop for rural residents and those considering moving into the area. “The goal was really to provide a warehouse of information for people moving to the rural areas,” said Douglas County planning supervisor Jeanette Bare. “It is a much different lifestyle for people coming from urban environments.” The project began with the initiation of a 30-person rural framework committee appointed by the Board of County Commissioners in 2009, made up mostly of rural residents as well as some developer consultants. According to Bare, the committee examined a broad range of topics of importance to those who live in the country. “These are actual stakeholders in the rural community,” she said. “I don’t want to imply that the website is their resulting document, but it was the beginning of the discussion in terms of what does it mean to

live in rural Douglas County, what are the challenges and issues they face, and what are the values of rural living.” According to Bare, the county often gets calls and receives visitors seeking information on a wide range of topics including land management, water rights, septic systems, animal regulations, wildfire mitigation and more. The site hits on all those items with user-friendly links that guide people to documents, agencies and service providers. “The website is a guide to help residents make good decisions and be good stewards of the land,” said Commissioner Roger Partridge. “I live in rural Douglas County and I certainly appreciate it. It presents a better idea of what rural living truly is.” Partridge said the best thing about the site is that its contents were initiated by people who live in the rural sections of the county and that it was not just developed by the planning department. “Douglas County presents residents with the unique ability to live in the country, but still work in the city,” he said. “But because we have such close country living, we want the residents to be as well informed as possible and give them a guide.” To visit the site, go to www.douglas. co.us/planning/rural.

Mental illness puts burden on ERs, jails Trouble caused by cuts has rippled outward By Kristin Jones

I-News at Rocky Mountain PBS They’re victims of car accidents, they’ve been shot, or they threatened their parents. They have overdosed on cocaine, swallowed too many pills or passed out drunk. On an average Friday or Saturday night, they can make up about half of the sick, injured and wounded crowding the rooms and hallways of the emergency department at Denver Health. And there’s one trait these patients

have in common, says Dr. Chris Colwell, director of the department. Had they received needed prior treatment, they might not be there at all. These ER visitors, for all their outward signs of trauma, suffer foremost from mental illness. “The emergency room could have been avoided if they had gotten psychiatric care anywhere else,” he says. Colwell believes uncontrolled behavioral health problems were also at the root of two events that he experienced up close: The mass murders at Columbine High School in 1999 and in Aurora in 2012. He was a physician on the scene at Columbine and also treated patients from the Aurora

shooting. “For every one of those that were a big high-profile event that everybody knows about,” says Colwell, “there’s a hundred that were either near misses … or resulted in violence, just not to the same extent.” As inpatient psychiatric beds have disappeared across the state, he’s watched the problem get worse. “I don’t think people understand the crisis that we’re in,” he says. An initiative put forward by Gov. John Hickenlooper in December 2012 — five months after the Aurora theater shootings — and signed into Health continues on Page 7

Mental issues often drive homelessness By Kristin Jones

I-News at Rocky Mountain PBS Mark Maseros used to be a repeat customer at the ER — when he wasn’t in jail for drugs or theft. Now 54, Maseros spent three decades living homeless in Denver. Hooked on heroin that he took to self-medicate what he now recognizes as an anxiety disorder, he was taken to the emergency room after overdosing. Or he walked in with panic attacks. “It was always good to go to the emergency room, because you’d get things to deal with your uncomfortableness,” says Maseros. “If I said the magic words that I wanted to kill myself, they’d set me up in a bed.” Over the years, Maseros said he was diagnosed “bipolar, tripolar” and any number of other psychiatric disorders. But he never got the sustained care he needed until four years ago, when the Colorado Coalition for the Homeless found housing for him, and he joined group therapy to help get the better of his anxiety. “I’m happy now,” says Maseros, who does rounds through downtown Denver on his bike, looking for others who are suffering as he once did. Maseros tries to point people to the services that are available in the city. He knows that without help some of them will end up dead. The president of the Colorado Coalition for the Homeless, John Parvensky, says there are many more like Maseros who want help but can’t get it. His organization stopped carrying a waiting list for mental health services when the roster reached

Parvensky believes there is a straight line between the decrease in funding for mental health — and especially the decline in inpatient capacity — and the increase in homelessness in Colorado. He estimates that around 40 percent of the adult homeless in the state suffer from serious mental illness — diagnoses like schizophrenia, bipolar disorder or severe depression that keep people from working and living in housing. “We saw the biggest spike in homelessness in the 1980s,” says Parvensky, “and it really correlated to both the deinstitutionalization as the state closed down the mental health facilities, and the funding that was promised to provide community-based services … never

materialized.” Patrick Fox, a state Department of Human Services official who oversees the mental institutes at Fort Logan and Pueblo, says that additional mental health funding pledged by the state will work to alleviate pressure on emergency rooms and jails — and care for the Colorado’s most vulnerable populations where they are. But Parvensky, who has watched the state’s homeless population more than triple since he joined the nonprofit in 1985, believes the chronic underfunding will be tough to undo. “It’s a down payment,” says Parvensky, “but unfortunately it’s a drop in the bucket compared to the need we’re seeing here in the metro Denver area and across the state.”

law earlier this year is intended to improve mental health services in the state by putting nearly $20 million into walk-in crisis centers and a statewide hotline. Additional state funding will also be put into modernizing treatment at the two public mental health institutes, Fort Logan in Denver and Pueblo, boosting inpatient capacity and other services, resulting in an overall 13.5 percent increase for behavioral health care in fiscal year 2013-2014. The money is needed, say state officials, health-care providers and advocates for the mentally ill, to ease pressure on emergency rooms and jails. Patrick Fox, an official for the Colorado Department of Human Services who oversees the two state institutes, says that a study of emergency room intakes has indicated that patients often stabilize within 48 hours, and that long-term mental health beds aren’t necessarily what’s needed most. “We view the introduction of an expanded crisis stabilization service across the state as being a very important first step to address the most pressing behavioral health needs of Coloradans,” Fox says. But many of the doctors and professionals working on the front lines of the crisis say the money isn’t enough to fill a yawning gap in services to prevent and treat mental illness.

Per-capita funding declined

A look back across three decades shows that public-sector funding for mental health services in Colorado hasn’t kept up with demand. Per-capita spending on mental health services in the state, when adjusted by the medical rate of inflation, dropped 28 percent from 1981 to 1990, according to data collected by the National State Mental Health Program Directors Research Institute Inc., or NRI. Federal budget cuts and an economic crisis in Colorado during the 1980s conspired to suck funding from state psychiatric hospitals and community mental health centers. And cuts made in that decade were never recovered. In 2010, the state spent the equivalent of 20 percent less per person on mental health services than it did in 1981, according to NRI data. The persistent funding shortfall long ago made jails and prisons the primary residential treatment centers for the mentally ill in Colorado, clogged emergency rooms, boosted medical expenses across the board, and expanded the ranks of the homeless on the streets of Denver and other cities. Eric Brown, a spokesman for the governor’s office, said that the new plan will help keep people from falling through the cracks. “There’s no way to make up all of the funding deficiencies and implement new programs in a short period,” Brown said, adding that it will take time and commitment.

Reagan played role

Two national policy shifts and an oil shale bust were behind the drop in funding in the 1980s. President Ronald Reagan took office at the start of the decade on a pledge to limit government spending. The Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1981 ranked among his first triumphs, cutting costs in part by transforming funding for mental health services into block grants to the states. In Colorado, those grants didn’t keep up with rising costs. Less than a year after this national legislation was passed, on May 2, 1982, Exxon pulled out of its oil shale operations in the Western Slope. Known as Black Sunday, the move foretold a massive bust in Colorado’s energy sector, triggering a recession and a decline in state tax revenue. Mental health services weren’t alone in suffering cutbacks — but the effects were stark. The state budget crisis took hold just as a broader philosophical shift was transforming the way mental health services were provided across the country. Legislation signed by President John F.

An ambulance arrives on Nov. 11 at Denver Health’s emergency department, where the director say the department is seeing an unprecedented number of people landing in the emergency room with underlying mental illnesses. Photo by Joe Mahoney/I-News at Rocky Mountain PBS Kennedy in 1963 had called for the funding of community mental health centers, and initiated a broader discussion about the role of large institutions in the treatment of those with mental illness. Youlon Savage led the movement toward deinstitutionalization in Colorado, and was executive director of the first community mental health center in the state to be funded under Kennedy’s initiative. He says the movement into community-based care was intended to help reduce stigma and promote integration. “Mental illness was no longer manifested by sending people away from home into large institutions,” says Savage. Even the Fort Logan mental health hospital in Denver was conceived as a community center when it opened in the 1960s. Staff didn’t wear uniforms, they worked closely in collaboration with patients who lived in a largely open and unlocked campus, and they made home visits to keep people out of the hospital. But broad slashes to the two state psychiatric hospitals in the 1970s deeply impacted both Fort Logan and Pueblo. By 1980, there were 1,103 public psychiatric beds in Colorado, down from 1,609 a decade earlier. Over the next decades, public beds would continue to disappear, and by 2013, the two state hospitals had only 545 beds. It wasn’t only the beds but the staffing and services that disappeared — services like home visits, community outreach and vocational training. “Fort Logan used to do all the things that the community mental health centers are supposed to be doing,” says Rebecca Watt, a former nurse at the hospital who believes that budget cuts have damaged the facility’s ability to treat its patients. The units for the elderly, children and teens at Fort Logan were among the most recent to close, in 2009. Recently, there were 38 people waiting for beds at Fort Logan and Pueblo, according to the Department of Human Services. The average wait time varies between eight and 25 days.

Local centers strapped

As the money moved out of the state hospitals, community mental health centers say they never got the funding they needed to take up the slack. Harriet Hall, the chief executive of Jefferson Mental Health Center, says facilities like hers sometimes got a boost from the state when the hospitals’ budgets were cut. But often, they got nothing. “It was never like, we’ll just transfer this money to the communities from the hospitals,” says Hall. Hall and others who lead the state’s 17 nonprofit community mental health centers say that with adequate funding they can provide much better services than the large institutions ever did — by giving the routine care people need to stay integrated within the community and out of costly hospital stays. But, they say, there are gaps in the services they can realistically provide, given their tight budgets. “There’s still kind of a dearth of options for folks who have genuinely long-term needs, and (whose illnesses are) a bit more severe than nursing home placement or return to home allows,” says Liz Hickman, who heads the Centennial Mental Health Center, which serves rural communities in northeastern Colorado.

What’s more, nonprofit community mental health centers say state funding doesn’t provide for the treatment of those without some form of public or private insurance or other payment source. Randy Stith, who heads the Aurora Mental Health Center, says that leaves them with no choice but to tell indigent patients to go to the emergency room for care. “We’re referring people to the emergency room off the streets pretty regularly,”

says Stith. “It’s costly but that’s what you do.” At Denver Health, Colwell describes having to board psychiatric patients in the emergency room. On a typical night, as many as 10 or 15 beds may be taken up by people who are waiting for psychiatric services, while the psychiatrists on staff at the hospital are overwhelmed with other cases. Those who pose a risk to themselves or others may be admitted to the psychiatric emergency department. Dr. Kimberly Nordstrom, the medical director of that department, says more and more of the patients she sees don’t have primary care providers. That often means that she can’t prescribe medications — with their uncertain side effects and tailored dosing needs — even to those who are very ill. “I can’t start medicine with somebody who’s not going to be seen for six months,” Nordstrom explains. Others, says Colwell, are at the brink of posing a risk to the community or themselves — but aren’t there yet. “Once their physical problems are taken care of, we can’t keep them,” says Colwell. But that doesn’t mean they won’t be coming back. I-News is the public service journalism arm of Rocky Mountain PBS and works in collaboration with news media throughout Colorado.

opinions / yours and ours

A breakfast toast to good companions Have you had a circumstantial breakfast lately? That’s what I call a breakfast that impresses you, and not just because of the food. You remember it because of whom you are with, or where you are, or the timing. On your honeymoon, eggs have never tasted better. Or worse. You just came back from a funeral, and you can’t even taste your food. Your best friend is sitting across the table from you. He just flew in from northern California. I just fixed breakfast, and I won’t remember what I ate an hour from now, especially if I do the dishes. There were no circumstances. Now, if I get food poisoning, that will change everything. I thought about my best circumstantial breakfast and my worst, and I came up with both of them right away. The best was almost too easy. It was on a Sunday at the Brown Palace. I have never seen so much food. It was either all right or all wrong. That’s the way I feel when I watch “Man v. Food.” Adam Richman attempts to eat more food in 30

minutes than most of us eat in a week. And more than some homeless people eat in a month. Richman is from Brooklyn, and he went to the same high school that Woody Allen went to, and my talented friend Susan went to: Midwood. He has a master’s degree from the Yale School of Drama, so he’s not just an everyday glutton. He retired from competitive eating in 2012, and has lost 60 pounds. I don’t like the word “brunch.” I don’t like the word “portmanteau” either, but that’s what the word “brunch” is, just like “smog.” Brunch is a combination of “breakfast” and “lunch.” Smog is a portmanteau of “smoke” and “fog.”

letters to the editor Pity party for election losers

It surely seems to me that your newspaper is holding a pity party for the losers of the recent local school board elections. In your Nov. 14 issue we got to read about the grief and the depression being suffered by the supporters of the defeated challengers. Then in the Nov. 21 issue you have written about the disgruntled, sad, disappointed and truly exhausted Douglas County teachers who seem heartbroken with the election results. Your reporter seems to sympathize with the disaffected teachers by wringing her hands with them as they bare their hearts. The story incredibly claims that your newspaper couldn’t locate for an interview any teachers who are happy with the election results. As if that’s not enough, an adjacent story tells your readers how the election made the students at ThunderRidge high school most dissatisfied and concerned. Good citizens all know that minors aren’t yet wise enough to direct their own intellectual and moral formation. As such they also don’t get to vote until the age of majority. You do your readers no service by printing the views of children in our schools regarding the election outcome. We all should know that such opinions of high school students are not well grounded in the hard facts of life, and thus not newsworthy. Save it for the yearbook! The majority of voters in Douglas County don’t see things through the same lens as your education reporter. A lot of out-of-state money and muscle coming from supporters of the public teachers unions didn’t prevail at the ballot box. Post-election, I think there’s a lot of delight and satisfaction in our community in some education circles, but I haven’t read about it in your paper. Matt Werner Castle Rock

too much subjective writing

Apparently Jane Reuter needs to get a new job, because she does not seem to understand the duties of her current one. As a journalist, her duty is to outline the facts in an objective manner, not subjectively grind away on a personal point of view. As a former journalist and Minnesota Public Radio broadcaster, I have read Ms. Reuter’s numerous stories (not articles) about the Douglas County School District with great dismay. Her latest attempt to color the issue in the Nov. 22-23 editions of the Douglas County newspapers finally prompted me to write. In just one paragraph of her half-page story, she uses more emotionally charged words than one would normally see in the editorial section. For example, whose metrics determined that those elected “narrowly won?” What objective measures are used to

quantify the current board’s movement as “dramatic” reform? If they indeed “narrowly won,” how can they be “triumphing over” anyone? How on Earth did Ms. Reuter determine that the winners “triumphed” over “another slate largely supported by community groups”? If they won the election, doesn’t that clearly indicate that the winners were indeed supported by the community? Reasonable people can disagree about many things. However, journalists should not be allowed to voice their opinions shrouded under the cover of a news article. In any freshman journalism class, Ms. Reuter’s biased writings would be correctly categorized as opinion pieces. Elizabeth Hurd Parker

‘Conservative’? hardly

Now that the “conservative” school board members have been re-elected, and the amendment to improve funding of our schools has been defeated, I have several concerns: • According to the dictionary, a conservative is one who wants to conserve and preserve. A school board conservative would be one who wants to conserve those things that are held in high regard by our society — such things as respect for teachers; fewer students per classroom; the right of teachers to collective bargaining; teacher salaries and benefits that attract and retain the very best. • Since the board wants to end dialogue with teachers, cut the district’s budget, and not provide funds for necessary supplies, our school district is likely to see experienced teachers leave, to be replaced by the less experienced. • Will we continue to see receptacles with signs asking us to donate school supplies? Should one of the wealthiest counties in the country have to beg for paper and pencils? • Since our board and voters primarily want to reduce expenditures, “unnecessary “ and “non-academic” classes such as music, physical education, extracurricular activities and art will probably be reduced or eliminated, thereby depriving students of knowledge that could enhance their health, interests, creativity, and possibly deprive them of discovering a career path that will keep them motivated to stay in school. • With larger classrooms, fewer supplies, demoralized teachers, fewer “non-academic” classes and extracurricular activities, we will likely see a higher number of drop-outs. • Finally, with collective bargaining minimized or eliminated, what alternative will teachers have but to go on strike? And it will be the teachers, not the school board or the voters, who will be blamed. David Ehline Castle Rock

I am going to call what we had that morning at the Brown Palace breakfast, even though it was brunch. I am not interested in All You Can Eat, but the circumstances were favorable for the choice. My best friend was in town from northern California, and sitting next to him was my sister, who was in town from suburban Detroit. I would have been happy with a sponge on my plate. Instead I had prime rib and asparagus tips, and about ten other things. I may have had turkey and dressing. There could have been salmon on my plate at one time. Choosing the worst was a snap. UCLA goofed up my student deferment, and I was notified by mail that a pre-induction physical was required. UCLA assured me that the deferment would be processed — after the physical. If you know Los Angeles you know MacArthur Park. You may know MacArthur Park if you don’t known Los Angeles, because of the Jimmy Webb song. It’s an awful song. The physical was performed a block

away. Things were done to me that I would rather not discuss, and after it was over, they handed me a coupon for a free breakfast. Why didn’t I just get in my Volkswagen and go back to West Los Angeles? Because there was nothing in the refrigerator, and how bad can any breakfast be? I don’t know how to cook, but I can make a decent breakfast. I don’t remember the name of the place. It could have been Puddled Eggs, or Suspicious Hash, or Mush of Pork? They all describe the gobbets on my plate. I said that I would have been happy with a sponge on my plate at the Brown Palace, because I was with my best friend and my sister, who would make up for almost anything on the menu. That’s not really true. If Mike and Cindy had been with me at Puddled Eggs it wouldn’t have helped. The orange juice was poached.

Thanksgiving leftovers are calorie-free goodness Don’t you just love Thanksgiving leftovers? As much as I enjoy those tasty reminders of the holiday, my favorite leftovers are the feelings of gratitude and appreciation for those very special people in my life and the blessings I have received. It sure does feel good when we can love on our friends and family members on Thanksgiving and shower them with the love and appreciation they deserve for standing by us, supporting us, and loving us back. And I especially love the feeling when I can tell them again on Friday, Saturday and Sunday just how much they mean to me. Talk about amazing leftovers, it just doesn’t get any better than that. Another benefit of gratitude leftovers is this, they are all calorie-free. As good as the turkey, mashed potatoes and cranberry sauce tastes, after too many days in the refrigerator they will all eventually need to be consumed or thrown away. That doesn’t happen with gratitude leftovers, as they can last for as long as we are willing to recognize just how meaningful and important they are to our own happiness and the health of our relationships. Most of us are fed and fed well at Thanksgiving, we are nourished with tables and plates full of delicious food prepared by those closest to us that we have chosen to share the Thanksgiving holiday

with. Sooner or later the initial meal and surplus goodies will be gone. But when we feed our attitude and spirit with the meals of gratitude and appreciation, we can live off of that nourishment for a very long time. That is why we need to remember that the leftovers don’t stop when Thanksgiving Thursday is just a few days gone in the rearview mirror. I truly hope that you had a warm, wonderful, and happy Thanksgiving, and I hope that you will enjoy the calorie-free leftovers for a very, very long time.

Three Douglas seniors ace ACT Students notch perfect scores on admissions test By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com Three Douglas County seniors scored a perfect 36 on their ACTs. The national college admissions test typically is taken in April, during a student’s junior year. Fewer than one-tenth of 1 percent of those who take the national college admissions exam gets a perfect score; the average is just over 21. The exam, which includes 215 multiple-choice questions, tests students’ knowledge in reading, math, science and English. “I was definitely surprised,” said Mountain Vista High School senior Julie Newman. “I had hoped I would do well on the ACT, but I was definitely not expecting a perfect score.”

Newman can’t say for sure what led to her 36, but speculated, “I took a lot of challenging classes, which probably helped.” Newman is applying to several colleges. “I’m looking at mostly pretty selective schools but have no certainty I’m getting into any of them,” she said, adding her major is undecided. “I’ve had some thoughts about doing math or chemistry, but I’m also really interested in history and international relations, and a lot of other things.” Douglas County High School senior Shawn Ong is aiming for the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and knew a high ACT score would significantly improve his chances of gaining admission. “They have to weed out even the top students,” he said. “It’s a one-in-12 acceptance rate. So it’s tough, even if you have perfect ACT scores.”

Ong, who wants to work in the field of applied mathematics, said he found some ACT study books at the library and worked through “a lot of practice books” before taking the test. “I was trying to go for perfect,” he said. Rock Canyon High School senior Ben King said news of his perfect score was a happy surprise. “It’s not like I’m a 4.6 GPA, all AP-class sort of guy,” he said. “I’ve always been pretty good at school, so it wasn’t totally out of the blue. But 36 is kind of unexpected for anyone.” Like Newman, King is looking at a variety of colleges, including Stanford, University of Colorado-Boulder and the Colorado School of Mines. He plans to major in civil engineering. King advised future ACT test takers to do some practice tests. “Other than that, get a good night’s sleep,” he said, “and eat a big breakfast.”

Teens to raise voices in song By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ ourcoloradonews.com Vocal music students from four area high schools have been rehearsing together in preparation for the St. Luke’s Performing Arts Academy Holiday Festival, according to James Ramsey, director of music and arts ministries at St. Luke’s United Methodist Church in Highlands Ranch. Almost 200 young singers from four area high schools will perform at 6 and 8 p.m. on Dec. 13 at St. Luke’s. Classic carols and favorite songs are on the program, plus a festival chorus song titled “Betelhemu,” with all the

movements and drums. Guest musicians include Frank Perko, organ; Gretchen Martin, piano; Dave Shugert, guitars; and Robb Heskett, drums.

Thanksgiving is real deal for survivor of accident Man meets with team that saved his life By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@ourcoloradonews.com It might sound cliché, but Roger Dean really does have a lot to be thankful for this holiday season. “It was a whole lot of events that individually don’t matter, but came together,” said the Parker resident. On Nov. 29 of last year, Dean was heading to pick up his granddaughter from school in his small Chevy S-10 pickup when a drunk driver changed his life forever. He was stopped at a light along with several other cars when a lifted Ford F250 — a very large pickup — literally ran over his truck. Fortunately, an off-duty lieutenant with South Metro Fire Rescue was a few cars ahead of Dean and quickly called in the team of first responders that saved his life. Dean was able to thank that team Nov. 20 at Littleton Adventist Hospital, where he stayed for 60 days, when his rescue became a case study for trauma nurses. It was the first time he had been so bluntly presented with his own injuries. “Frankly, I was pretty nervous about coming,” he said. “But I kind of worked myself up to it. I’ve kind of been analytical about it. … It’s a little troublesome, but I’m OK with it.” He listened as the paramedics described how they found him slumped across the bench seat with his head smashed into the passenger window, face crumpled, one eye hanging out of the socket, blood coming out of both ears. Two things were clear: Dean hadn’t been wearing a seatbelt, and getting him out of the vehicle was going to be a challenge. They were clear for the same reason — at the time, Dean weighed somewhere be-

tween 450 and 475 pounds. And perhaps unfortunately for him, he was conscious. “But he had a very calm demeanor, which is great,” said Dusty Stevens, Franktown firefighter. Dean was able to help keep his own airway clear, freeing his rescuers up to get him loaded up and on his way to LAH’s emergency room. “Roger had more anesthetics than I’ve ever seen,” said Kim Muramoto, director of trauma programs. Dean watched as Dr. Mark Elliott showed a graphic video of the procedure he used to try to save his damaged eye. “Sorry, Roger, that it didn’t help,” said Elliott. “That’s OK, you guys did everything you could,” said Dean. Muramoto described the challenges of sending him through the CAT scan, which is rated for 475 pounds. If he were to come into contact with the sides, the results wouldn’t be usable, and it could be dangerous to him, she said. She personally walked through with him to ensure that didn’t happen. Trauma surgeon Dr. Donald Conner said he placed two operating tables together to work on Dean. He described Dean’s crushed chest, fractured sternum and head injuries. “It’s amazing how God has built the face,” he said. “It’s kind of like a built-in crumple zone. A lot of his scalp was detached from his skull.” He only had to endure one follow-up facial surgery, as it was determined braces would fix the rest of the damage. “I really was blessed,” he said. “Things just went well for me, and I’m appreciative.” Dean says he’s gotten a new outlook on life since the accident, and thinks his sense of humor has gotten better. “He’s a different man,” confirms wife JoDee. “New and improved.”

Wolterstorff; and St. Mary’s Academy Director Roberta Hamilton Griggs “to advance the importance of music in our schools,” where there are sometimes budgetary problems. “I believe school music and art programs are a critical component of a student’s development towards American ingenuity and innovation by fostering creativity. I believe we can change the landscape of our culture through the performing arts through leadership, empowerment, character and community,” Ramsey said. Next year, the plan is to move PAA from summer programs to year-round. (More about that in January.)

Paralyzed vets thank Coffman Staff report U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman was recently recognized for his work on behalf of veterans with the “Legislator of the Year” award from the Mountain States Chapter of the Paralyzed Veterans of America. Coffman, who spent 21 years in the military, is the chairman of the Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee of the Veterans Committee. Earlier this year, he passed a bill out of the U.S. House that will expand training opportunities for veterans by allowing them to use their educational benefits for on-the-job-training and apprenticeship programs in the private sector and for jobs in the federal government. He also sponsored legislation that reauthorized federal funding for adaptive sports programs for veterans, and introduced a bill to reform the Service-Disabled VeteranOwned Small Business procurement program so that it operates more effectively. “Mike Coffman has fought for this country in uniform and he is now fighting for our veterans here at home to make sure that they receive the care and the benefits that they have earned, and we are proud to recognize his service with this award,” said Mark Shepherd, the chapter’s executive director.

Kaiser opens Lone Tree center Medical facility offers more than 20 specialties

OPEN HOUSE Kaiser Permanente will host a public open house at its new Park Meadows Drive facility from 1 to 4 p.m. Dec. 14. Community members are invited to check out the building, meet some of the staff and physicians, enjoy refreshments and participate in family activities including a mini farmers market and obstacle course.

By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com Christmas came early for Kaiser Permanente this year when it opened the doors to its new 275,000-square-foot, six-story, multi-specialty center. The Lone Tree building, under construction for more than two years, welcomed its first patients Dec. 2. The facility brings about 20 specialty services, 45 doctors and 300 additional employees to serve its approximately 128,000 south metro area members. “We’re bringing specialty care to where they live,” said Kaiser’s Dr. David Gladu, operations chief for surgical specialties and a longtime Lone Tree resident. “Up until now, most of our medical and surgical care was in downtown Denver. This will be much easier for patients.” Kaiser began its search for land in the south metro area almost four years ago. The site is on Park Meadows Drive, across from the Lincoln Avenue light rail station. “This property wasn’t even for sale,” project manager Mike Schultz said, adding that the site’s 20-acre size, its scenic views to the west, and easy access to Interstate 25 made it an ideal location. Kaiser approached the landowner, who agreed to sell it. “The drivers for this building were orthopedics, as well as the ability to do outpatient or day surgery,” Kaiser spokes-

The building also includes oncology and infusion, allergy, gastroenterology, obstetrics and gynecology, pain management, medical imaging, palliative care and many other services, including a pharmacy and optical center. “With this building, mom could come in for an eye appointment, schedule an X-ray for a child and get lab work done,” Whited said. “You don’t have to drive across town anymore.” The area for the Lone Tree Kaiser’s drug infusion center carefully was reserved for a first-floor, west-facing site. “Those patients can be here from two to six hours,” Greg Mills, Kaiser’s south area

The effort to move away from the sterile atmosphere once common to hospitals and medical facilities is evident on every floor — from colorful accent walls and large, original murals to a whimsical, bicycle-themed sculpture that winds along the side of an open staircase. Even on the garden level and in rooms that house MRI, CT and other scanners, architects found ways to add natural light. Mills said that helps patients relax during

what typically are tension-producing procedures. The building includes a garden level and five additional floors. The fifth is unfinished space, reserved for future growth. The site also has room for two additional buildings and two parking structures; Kaiser has no timeline for any additional construction. Additional specialties, such as cardiology, endocrinology, neurology and dermatology, will be added during that second phase of development. With the opening of the new building, Kaiser has closed its Yosemite Street offices, which for three years provided orthopedic specialty care and other limited services from a leased space. Its landlocked Franklin Street facility in downtown Denver also has contributed to Kaiser’s multi-pronged recent expansion. In 2012, Kaiser opened the Fort Collins Medical Center and Loveland Medical Offices. In January 2014, it will open a new medical office building in Greeley. Statewide, Kaiser serves about 545,000 members.

annual funding. Castle Rock gives free rent to the senior center, which is located in a 6,000-square-foot wing of the town’s Castle Rock Recreation Center, 2323 Woodlands Blvd. In 2013, the town also gave $60,000 for operational costs and $32,000 for the transportation program, Smoski said. Douglas County gave $70,000, primarily to help with the transportation program. Another 15 to 20 percent of the center’s funding comes from a couple major fundraisers every year, Smoski said. And the remaining amount comes from activity fees, dues, donations, grants and private foundations — and this is the problem pot. Smoski said in addition to federal cutbacks, private foundations the last couple years are directing funds away from senior needs to other things, such as child development, also an important need, he acknowledged. Smoski said the senior center,

Misare as town clerk is responsible for all municipal, coordinated and special elections; public records; liquor licensing; and the administration of the Town’s 11 boards and commissions, according to a news release. In addition, she coordinates town special events, represents the town to the Castle Rock Chamber of Commerce Board, and serves as town liaison to the town’s public art commission and the election commission. Misare holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration, is a certified municipal clerk, and is a member of the International Institute of Certified Municipal Clerks.

Mondays, bridge players come to play at the Castle Rock Senior Center. Deep concentration seemed to be happening on Nov. 25 and the main room at times was about as quiet as an empty church.

In her time with the town she developed election policies as the town moved to allmail-ballot elections; converted the town to electronic records and council packets; and developed the “No Knock” program, which requires solicitors to register with the town and provides residents a way to sign up for a no-solicitation list. Misare also has served on the statewide Election Reform Commission and the Colorado Municipal Clerks Association Board of Directors and various subcommittees. “Sally is simply the best town clerk with whom I have known and worked,” wrote Town Manager Mark Stevens in his nomina-

Sally richly deserves this honor, and I am proud to nominate her.” Misare, who has worked for Castle Rock for 25 years, said she plans to stick around for at least a couple more years before retiring. She said she likes everything about Castle Rock, and has raised two children here with her husband, who is a now-retired high school teacher — Mallory, 27, a sixth-grade teacher, and Ryan, 24, a graduate of the Air Force Academy and a second lieutenant.

SALOME’S STARS FOR THE WEEK OF DEC 5, 2013

ARIES (Mar 21 to Apr 19) Decisions involving your finances might seem to be foolproof. But they could have underlying risks you should know about. Don’t act on anything until all the facts are in. TAURUS (Apr 20 to May 20) You’re attracted to a situation that appeals to your Bovine intellect. And that’s good. But don’t neglect your passionate side when romance comes calling later in the week. GEMINI (May 21 to Jun 20) A recent development enhances that special relationship. Spending more time together also helps make the bonding process stronger. Expect news about a possible career change.

crossword • sudoku & weekly horoscope

GALLERY OF GAMES

CANCER (Jun 21 to Jul 22) A suspicious situation should be dealt with before it leads to serious problems. Get all the facts needed to resolve it. Then refocus your energies on those tasks that need your attention. LEO (Jul 23 to Aug 22) Try to be more open-minded in working toward a resolution of that standoff between yourself and a colleague or family member. A little flexibility now could work to your advantage later. VIRGO (Aug 23 to Sept 22) You might feel a bit threatened by a proposed workplace change. The best way to deal with it is to ask questions. You’ll find that those involved will be happy to provide you with the facts. LIBRA (Sept 23 to Oct 22) Feeling alone in a crowd during the early part of the week is an unsettling emotion. But your spirits soon perk up, putting you into the right mood to start making holiday plans. SCORPIO (Oct 23 to Nov 21) A pesky problem should be dealt with immediately so you can put your time and effort into something more important. Someone from your past could have significant news for you. SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 to Dec 21) High-energy aspects dominate, both on the job and at home. Use this time to put some long-range plans into operation. Things level off later in the week. CAPRICORN (Dec 22 to Jan 19) Even the usually gregarious Goat might feel overwhelmed by a flurry of activities. Be patient. Things soon return to your normal social routine. AQUARIUS (Jan 20 to Feb 18) Career choices that seem too confusing to deal with at this point probably are. More information would help uncomplicate them. On the personal side, a friend might need your advice. PISCES (Feb 19 to Mar 20) Your Piscean imagination is stimulated by possibilities you see in a new opportunity. But keep those ideas to yourself until you feel ready to translate them into a workable format. BORN THIS WEEK: You have an ingratiating way of helping people deal with their fears.

BLUE CHRISTMAS. Christmas is a time for memories and remembering. For some, the memories are of beloved family members who have died, and the pain of their loss is still real, even months and years later. For others, the sadness of divorce or broken relationships, bring anguish to this season. Sometimes the anxious insecurity of financial instability or the frightening diagnosis of poor health darkens this Christmas. For those who have empty places in their heart and home, a worship service near Christmas that intentionally acknowledges this pain and offers the comfort of hope can be helpful. First United Methodist Church of Castle Rock will once again offer a Blue Christmas Service at 7 p.m. Dec. 5 in the sanctuary at 1200 South St., Castle Rock. All are welcome. DEC. 5 CHRISTMAS SHOW.

Skillful staging, sad story

Day’s birds are numbered Audubon relies on volunteers for annual Christmas tally By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com

By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com In many instances, we complain about the transition of a well-loved book to film and stage, but Kevin McKeon’s adaptation of the best-selling “Snow Falling on Cedars” by David Guterson works quite well — due in large part to a skillful director, Sam Wood. The complicated story starts in 1954 with Kabuo Miyamoto (Dale Li) on trial for the murder of Carl Hein, who had been a childhood friend. The script then tells the backstory through many flashbacks: to a teenage love affair between Ishmael Chambers (Ben Cowhick) and Hatsue Mitamoto (Arlene Rapal); to the Japanese-American farmers who raised strawberries and wanted to buy more land; to the announcement of the Pearl Harbor bombing; the growing prejudice against — and eventual arrest and internment of — Japanese-American citizens who were residents of the island in Puget Sound where the story takes place. Maria Cheng as Fujiko Imada and Rob Payo as Hisao Imada reflect another sort of prejudice in warning their daughter, Hatsue, against dating a white boy because “you couldn’t trust them.” The set is a simple suggestion of a waterfront with minimal set pieces

Industry Foundation, said a story in Colorado Business magazine. In 1900, Dr. Frank Chapman, ornithologist at the American Museum of Natural History at the north end of Central Park, suggested that instead of going out and shooting as many small birds as possible, people should go out and count them on a given day and compile a record of what they spotted. He sparked a movement that draws amateur “citizen scientists” and professionals out early in the morning on a given day between mid-December and early January to count birds seen within a set boundary and turn in the count to the Audubon Society. Results are tallied and sometimes they highlight an environmental threat or evidence of climate change, which will help conservationists in efforts to protect birds when and where possible. On Dec. 14, the Audubon Society of Greater Denver invites birders of all abilities to its Nature Center at Chatfield from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. for a Christmas Bird Count and Holiday Party. Binoculars are available for loan and hot chocolate will bring added energy as families and individuals join the experts to see which feathered friends are visiting Chatfield that day. Make bird ornaments and decorate cookies. The event is free and there should be information about Audubon’s ongoing educational opportunities for all ages. (This center is especially adapted to share its enthusiasm with very young children and offers “Fledgling” programs.) Those who are interested, but not free that day, can check for other bird count opportunities in Denver (Dec. 14), Denver Urban (Jan. 1 at numerous locations), and Douglas County Dec. 28 at Roxborough State Park Christmas Bird Counts.

Valor Christian to add arts building Auditorium, multiple studios part of sprawling structure By Ryan Boldrey

rboldrey@ourcoloradonews.com Valor Christian hosts its weekly chapel exercises in the gym. When it comes to performing arts, students build their sets in storage spaces, garages, or parking lots. They then travel to Lone Tree, Parker or Denver to put on a production. As for rehearsal space, director of the arts Arie Ringnalda calls the school’s existing conditions in the basement of the academic building “comically crowded.” That’s all about to change, however, as the school has plans to break ground on an 83,000-square-foot arts building in the spring of 2014 with the hopes of having much of it open for the 2015-16 school year. The new building will increase the number of total teaching spaces at the school from 55 to 75, with 22 of those tailored for specialized instruction in either arts or communication. There will be a full-size practice room for the school’s two symphonies, a black box theater that will double as a lecture hall, a TV production suite, professionallevel recording studio, two dance studios, 3-D and 2-D art studios, and a photography room. The main attraction of the building, though, will be a 720-seat auditorium perfect for hosting the school’s productions, community theater and high school debate contests. “If you were asking me to put this on a scale of one to 10 as for level of excitement, it’s about a 14,” said dance instructor John DeYoung, whose current basement studio doubles as a Spanish classroom. “We’re getting out of a modified storage unit.” From there, DeYoung will take his students into a professional-style studio with dance bars, integrated lighting systems and mountain views. The change is but a microcosm of the overall transformation of the entire arts wing, which Ringnalda sees as necessary to fulfill Valor’s vision of run-

That is already happening now, but with the right facilities in place we will be able to do that at that much higher of a level. “There are 600-plus kids at Valor involved in arts between classes and afterschool programs. The program is thriving

now, but the space was never built to support it at the level we have been envisioning. It’s almost like we are buttoned up against a glass ceiling, we can see where we want to go aren’t quite there yet.” When finished, the proposed building will have a look on the outside that will fit right in with the rest of the campus. “What they are planning is typical Valor, gorgeous,” said Highlands Ranch Community Association Developmental Review Committee chairman Woody Bryant. “It’s going to be beautiful.”

Disabled teen finds spot on DU roster Pioneers hockey team welcomes local boy By Ryan Boldrey

rboldrey@ourcoloradonews.com Adam Encrapera wheeled his chair into the University of Denver locker room following the Pioneers’ 3-1 victory over Air Force Nov. 23 at Magness Arena. Immediately, cheers erupted from the DU hockey team and a chant of “Adam, Adam, Adam,” quickly gained steam. The Pioneers were now 1-0 with their newest teammate — a 14-year-old Highlands Ranch youth who is one of just 500 people worldwide known to have Alstrom syndrome, a rare genetic disorder that affects every organ in the body with exception of the brain. Adam was diagnosed with AS at age 3. Legally blind and hard of hearing, the Cresthill Middle School eighth-grader has had fierce battles with liver disease and diabetes, has experienced countless seizures, had heart and kidney problems, had two back surgeries and spends his nights in bed hooked up to a breathing machine. In the past three years alone, he has also had just shy of 20 trips to the emergency room. On Nov. 19, in a special ceremony, he signed a letter of intent to become an honorary member of the Pioneers for the duration of the 2013-14 season, in which he will not just attend games, but get to be part of pre- and post-game activities with the team. “Adam is a local kid, likes hockey, is a big sports fan and it just seemed like a good fit for us, something all the guys are really excited about getting involved with,” said DU sophomore defenseman Wade Bennett, who is recovering from an injury and watched the Air Force game with Adam and his family in the stands. “We are truly initiating him into the Pioneer family,” Bennett continued. “It’s

Cresthill Middle School eighth-grader Adam Encrapera, 99, celebrates the University of Denver hockey team’s 3-1 win over Air Force Nov. 23 in the Pioneer locker room. Encrapera, who is living with Alstrom syndrome, signed a letter of intent with the team Nov. 19 to become an honorary member of the squad. Photo by Ryan Boldrey meant to be a friendship. He is one of our brothers now and we want to bring him as much joy as we can when he is around the rink and be there for him when things maybe aren’t going so well for him off the ice.” Adam has his own stall in the Pioneer locker room, nameplate and all, and was also given a No. 99 jersey. He said he is still getting to know all the guys’ names and doesn’t have a favorite player yet, but so far

the experience has been special. “I’m going to try to get to many games as I can,” said Adam, who can’t hear without his hearing aids and listens to the game on his headphones while at the rink. A former adaptive hockey player, Adam used to use a hockey stick as a cane when he was little. And while he has spent a lot of time around his older brother Luke’s hockey and baseball teams, he has never truly had a team of his own, until now.

“Every day is a challenge,” said his mother, Susan Encrapera. “When you can balance it with something that can give him hope, it encourages him and makes him feel like part of something. It helps him get through rough times.” Now, thanks to Team IMPACT — the national nonprofit organization that made the match — and the Pioneers hockey team, Adam has 25 new brothers to help him through those rough times.

DYNASTY: Valor makes it 5 in a row

Valor teammates hold the trophy as quarterback A.J.

Eagles take state title with 56-16 win over Fairview By Jim Benton

jbenton@ourcoloradonews.com Valor Christian’s players held up one hand as they gathered near the goalposts under the Sports Authority Field scoreboard. It was the Eagles’ adaptation of a high five. Valor won its fifth consecutive Colorado state football championship Nov. 30 with a 56-16 romp over previously unbeaten Fairview in the Class 5A championship game. The Eagles have captured one Class 3A title, two Class 4A crowns and now the past two Class 5A state championships. In the five title contests, Valor outscored the opposition, 210-48. Next season Valor will have its sights set on matching Limon’s all-time Colorado record of six consecutive state titles. The Badgers won six in a row between 1963-68. Valor will graduate 19 seniors, but 60 players listed on the roster for the state

humble and we expect them to fill the gap of leadership left by our seniors,” said Eagles coach Rod Sherman. “We’ll see where we end up next year from an offensive and defensive standpoint. We have developed a legacy and tra-

dition in this program. It’s not about winning, it’s about being prepared, playing as hard as we can and playing with class.” Valor, an independent, could end up playing in the Centennial League in 2014. There are six alignment proposals to be considered Dec. 5 and five of them have the Eagles joining the Centennial League. “Definitely, this team can keep winning,” insisted junior defensive back Brian Dawkins Jr. “All I have to say is, bring it on.” Valor brought it on early and often against Fairview as the Eagles (13-1) dominated from the opening kickoff with a strong defense that contained the Knights’ prolific passing attack and an offense that struck quickly but also mounted scoring drives of 80 (twice) and 71 yards. The Eagles never punted in the title game that drew a crowd of 11,482 fans. Valor kept pressure on Fairview quarterback Anders Hill and scored three times on its first four plays to jump ahead 21-0 in the first 6:10 of the game. The Eagles used a 35-point spree to swell their lead to 56-8 in the fourth quarter. Valor continues on Page 22

Arapahoe senior made net gains Krantz excels all over volleyball court By Jim Benton

jbenton@ourcoloradonews.com Whitney Krantz feels comfortable any place on a volleyball court. Krantz can play in the front row or the back row. Her versatility is one of the reasons the 6-foot Arapahoe High School senior was selected as the Colorado Community Media South Metro Volleyball Player of the Year. “I’m what they call a six-rotation outside hitter, which means I play in the front row and also in the back row,” explained Krantz. “Outside hitters don’t play in the back row, they just go and hit. “I really enjoy the back row. It’s something I used to struggle with a lot but I think back row and defense takes a little bit more confidence than the front row because you really have to push yourself to go for a ball, you can’t hesitate because the second you hesitate you are not going to get the dig. I

PICKING THE ATHLETES OF THE YEAR CHOOSING COLORADO Community Media’s South Metro Athletes of the Year was a combined effort. Area coaches were asked for their thoughts, and their input was weighed heavily when CCM’s sports staff made the final selection for each sport. ELIGIBLE ATHLETES come from all the high schools in Douglas County, the high schools in the Littleton Public Schools District and from Cherry Creek High School. played all the way around, got a lot of court time, so that was fun.” Krantz, who along with Grace Marlow were key players in leading Arapahoe to a runner-up finish in the Class 5A state tournament, finished the season with 295 kills (3.2 per set), 229 digs (2.5 per set), 47 blocks and 27 service aces. “Generally the people that play in the back row are a little bit shorter and they are quick on their feet and always low and moving,” said Krantz. “When I first started playing volleyball I didn’t really understand

how to get low to the ground.” Krantz was Arapahoe’s 2013 Most Valuable Player and coach Cara Seyers boasts about how Krantz was able to adapt wherever she was playing. “She played all around,” said Seyers. “She was as important to our defense as she was to our offense.” However, Krantz confessed she adores the offensive aspect of the game and executing a successful spike. “As an outside hitter, kills are one of my favorite parts of volleyball,” said Krantz, who has signed a letter of intent to play next season at Lehigh. “I worked a lot with my coaches on just mixing up my shots. There’s always room for improvement to become a better player. “Overall it was a really fun season. I worked on improving my game, which my teammates helped a lot because it is a big team sport. They helped me not only work on my physical game but my mental game. It was probably the best season I’ve had in my high school career. Part of that was because of experience and learning the game a little better.”

Boys hoops preview

Free throws can be arc of triumph By Jim Benton

jbenton@ourcoloradonews.com The outcome of many basketball games is decided from 15 feet away from the basket. “Free-throw shooting is one of the most important things in winning a basketball game,” said Valor Christian senior Garrett Baggett, who made 82 percent of his attempts from the charity stripe last season. “If you miss 10 free throws and lose by two points, if you had made five of 10 you win the game.” Coaches substitute late in games not only to get good defensive or offensive players on the floor, but also to get better freethrow shooters in the lineup. “It always comes down to free throws,” said Highlands Ranch coach Bob Caton. “Sometimes not just making a free throw but getting a lot of free throws too.” Valor Christian coach Ronnie DeGray tries to make sure his players have their feet correctly aligned and their shooting methods are correct. After that, it us up to the player. Coaches have numerous approaches such as free-throw ladders, team competition and other shooting drills with awards and the usual running punishment to put pressure on players to make free throws during practice. Free-throw shooting provides a chunk of almost every basketball practice. “We like players to get comfortable,” explained Caton. “Every kid when he shoots a free throw should have a pattern, whatever they like to do. Then you want to have the good form, the proper form. One thing you don’t do, if a kid is making a good percent of his free throws, you leave him alone. If he is not making a good percent of his free throws, then you work with him. Then you want repetition, where everything becomes a habit.” Baggett made 63 of 76 free-throw attempts and is one of the best returning

south metro area boys players in free throw percentage. “I have a routine I do before every freethrow shot,” said Baggett. “I’ll walk to the top of the key, look at the rim a little bit, catch the ball and get a feel for it, take three dribbles to get in a rhythm, eyes on the rim and shoot it.” The waving and other methods students use to distract free-throw shooters doesn’t bother Baggett. “All the waving doesn’t usually bother me because I have my head down when I dribble so at the last second is when I pull up, look at the rim and shoot it,” he said. “So I really don’t see all that when I shoot the ball. “It depends on the situation if I think about the importance of a free throw. If it’s a close game, I’ll think a little bit more. I just

think about it like any other shot, it’s a routine that I’ve always had.” Baggett got into a free-throw shooting routine early. “I used to be homeschooled in middle school,” he recalled. “I’d finish my school work by noon and I’d just go out and shoot. I’d shoot about 100 free throws a day. I think that’s where it developed. I could always improve on my free-throw shooting. I’d like to shoot 90 percent this year.” Highlands Ranch ranked near the bottom of the Continental League, hitting 61 percent of its free throws. “Sometimes it’s who gets fouled and if he is a good shooter,” said Caton. “Last year we had a couple guys who didn’t shoot very well. If they had shot better, we would have been in great shape.”

The last 21:34 of the contest was played with a running clock, and Sherman shuffled reserves into the game midway through the third quarter. “I never in my wildest dreams thought the score would have got this way,” said Sherman. “We played great defense. We were able to bring some different pressures. We were able to go up 14-0 and it made it harder for their offense and defense. It was huge for us to get the lead because they hadn’t had to play from behind too much.” Valor’s offense, operating behind a stellar line, did its part too. Christian McCaffrey, Valor’s senior running back who signed a letter of intent to play at Stanford, rushed for 129 yards on 12 carries and scored twice. He also caught five passes for 92 yards and two TDs. In the second half, he touched the ball only once. McCaffrey finished the season with 46 touchdowns, which gave him 141 in his career. He wrapped up his prep career by scoring at least one TD in 43 straight games. “I so happy, I can’t express how I feel,” said McCaffrey who was part of the senior class that won four state titles. “All our guys played well. Going out with a broom is something kind of special.” Quarterback A.J. Cecil was 15-of-16 for 245 yards and four touchdowns. He rushed for 65 yards and his only flaws on an otherwise perfect game were an interception and fumble.

“I thought A.J. played arguably his best game of the year,” said Sherman. Valor senior Paul Grizzle, in his first season as a kicker, booted eight extra-point kicks, giving him single-season state records for points (85) and consecutive conversions. Eric Lee Jr., Marcus Wilson, Stone Watson and Nathan Whatmore also had TDs for the Eagles, who have won 22 straight state playoff games. Valor’s defense forced three turnovers and thwarted a Fairview offense that came into the game averaging 45 points. The Knights had defeated three Douglas County teams (Mountain Vista, Douglas County and ThunderRidge) en route to the title game. Fairview, which had passed for an average of 315.5 yards per game, had 208 yards passing but finished with 199 yards of total offense on 63 plays. The Knights had minus 9 yards rushing as Valor, the No. 2 seed, had seven sacks. The top-seeded Knights held a 36:3826:22 edge in time of possession and ran 14 more offensive plays than the Eagles, who finished with 523 yards of total offense. “We respect Valor,” said Fairview coach Tom McCartney. “They were tremendous in every aspect of the game. The reason the score got out of hand was Valor’s play, because we came into the game ready and prepared. We may not have taken care of the ball like we usually do, but give them credit because they played an outstanding game on both sides of the ball.” Valor’s only loss of the season came by a field goal at the hands of Bingham, a Utah high school that won that state’s largeschool championship.
