County targets transit funds

Federal grant would benefit seniors, disabled By Ryan Boldrey

Ducky Derby helps raise thousands of dollars for the Castle Rock and Castle Pines Rotary Clubs each year, as 9,000 toy ducks race down Plum Creek. The winning three ducks bring cash prizes to three lucky individuals.

Plum Creek was the place to be June 8 in Castle Rock as more than 4,000 people flocked to the watercourse to watch 8,000 toy ducks race the rapids. Ducky Derby, an annual fundraiser for the Castle Pines and Castle Rock Rotary Clubs, raised more than $30,000. Three lucky winners took home cash prizes based on their duck picks, with the first-place winner collecting $2,000.

Transportation for seniors and those with disabilities in Douglas County may be getting a much-needed boost in the near future. With unanimous support from the county commissioners, the county is applying for a grant that would increase transportation funding in non-RTD areas by $622,464 for a two-year period covering 2014 and 2015. The county would provide a 26 percent match of $162,120, while the federal grant share would be $460,344. “Transit in Douglas County is a challenge and a lot of it has to do with the fact that we are on the edge of the Denver metro area and our communities are so spread out,” said District 3 Commissioner Jill Repella. “We are working on it. We are continuing to work on it and this is part of that challenge.” Perhaps the biggest challenge the county faces is that it has one of the fastest growing senior populations in the country, and between 2009 and 2011 it saw its transportation funding cut dramatically due to the recession. In 2009, according to county documents, approximately 150,000 one-way trips were provided in non-RTD service areas to seniors and those with disabilities. That number dropped to 23,000 in 2011 due to a loss of funding. With some help from a Federal Funds continues on Page 14

Eagle lands in Castle Rock Douglas County Veterans Monument installed downtown By Ryan Boldrey

rboldrey@ourcoloradonews.com It took more than six years of planning, thousands of donations and volunteer hours, and the use of a local crane, but the eagle has landed in downtown Castle Rock. Weighing in at 900 pounds, a bronze eagle, sculpted by Bill Hueg of Westminster, is hoisting an American flag atop a globe. On June 4, with the guidance of three men, it was placed carefully on a granite-coated steel and concrete base to complete the $170,000 Douglas County Veterans Monument. “Six years, I’ve been waiting for this day,” said World War II veteran Lou Zoghby, a longtime member of the monument foundation’s board of directors. “This is for all

the veterans past, present and future in the entire county. … What better symbol to depict all of our different branches of service than the eagle.” The six-sided monument, at the southwest corner of Wilcox and Fourth streets, is embossed with six seals recognizing the Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marine Corps, Merchant Marine and Navy. There are also two plaques on the monument. One of them honors those killed in action and reads, “In honor and respect for those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our country. You will always be remembered.” “When we picked this design out of the 14 designs that were submitted, we picked it from a sketch, and little did I realize what it would look like in its full 3D form,” said Henry Bohne, a Korean War veteran and chairman of the foundation board. “There Eagle continues on Page 14

Her voice is as fragile as Sue Rhodes looks. She is a delicate, 87-year-old woman with dark gray, chin-length hair, thin shoulders slightly bowed. Her right hand trembles as she scrutinizes the painting, a profile of a woman with a Lois Lane hairstyle, bright red lips and a soft pink blouse. “This looks like ladies in the ’40s and ’50s,” says Lisa Hut, a volunteer artist sitting next to Sue. “Think of a name for it. Does it remind you of anybody?” “No, but I’ll do what you tell me to do.” “I’m not going to tell you to do anything,” Lisa says gently. Sue glances at her painting again. “It looks all right, like that.” “How about a story? Does it make you think of anything?” “She did so-and-so.” “I wonder what so-and-so is,” Lisa muses. Sue takes her brush and slowly deepens the pink edges of the blouse. Then she holds up the painting.

“Oh, my gosh,” Lisa says. “It looks so good.” Sue nods softly. She smiles. Lisa: “She looks happy to me.” “She does to me, too,” Sue says, “except …” And her voice trails away as she begins another painting, her mind, perhaps, chasing a fleeting memory. The light-filled room is replete with remembrances, some unwittingly captured on paintings scattered across the tables, others flitting in and out, coming close, teasing their owners but then darting away.

While Democratic leaders applauded Gov. John Hickenlooper for signing Senate Bill 13-252, which increases renewable energy standards for energy co-ops in the state, Republican lawmakers claimed the bill will hurt rural Coloradans. The bill, signed on June 5, will go into effect July 1 and require Colorado energy cooperatives — including Intermountain Rural Energy Association — to double their existing requirements for renewable energy from 10 percent of all energy used to 20 percent prior to 2020. IREA currently obtains its renewable energy through a long-term purchase agreement with Xcel Energy, and according to a statement on its website cannot unilaterally increase the amount it requires from Xcel, which creates an issue. IREA says on the site that it is a supporter of renewable energy, but it was opposed to the bill because it believes “the arbitrary imposition of a renewable requirement without regard to existing infrastructure and contracts will only lead to costly waste.” IREA serves customers in, among other areas, Elbert and Douglas counties. Hickenlooper stated the bill was “imperfect,” but in an executive order accompanying the signing of it, said an advisory committee was being assembled that will work to address concerns such as the timetable for implementing the new requirements as well as protecting consumers impacted by the legislation. He said that if issues are not resolved through stakeholder engagement, there is an agreement in place that changes will be made to the legislation in the next session. “This legislation will expand economic opportunities across Colorado through the development of wind, solar, and other innovative energy resources,” he stated in the order. “Rural areas, in particular, will benefit

wHat tHe Renewable bill does • Increases renewable energy standards for cooperative electric associations serving more than 100,000 meters from its current 10 percent by 2020 to 20 percent. • Provides extra credit for new renewable resources acquired through 2015. • Allows both methane capture and pyrolysis of solid waste to count toward the renewable energy standard, as long as the production is greenhouse gas-neutral. • Ensures that no utility bill will increase by more than 2 percent as a result of bill.

These are all good things, and I am incredibly pleased to know we have taken another step toward national leadership in the clean energy field.” Attempts to reach representatives of IREA for comment were unsuccessful.

Illegal immigrants can get licenses Three Democrats broke with party to oppose plan By Vic Vela

vvela@ourcoloradonews.com Undocumented immigrants living in Colorado will soon be able to obtain driver’s licenses under a bill that was recently signed into law by Gov. John Hickenlooper. Senate Bill 251 allows immigrants to apply for “separate category” types of stateissued IDs that can only be used for driving purposes. The licenses will indicate that the user is a non-citizen, and they will not be able to use the IDs to obtain benefits, board planes or register to vote. Hickenlooper and other supporters of the legislation, which was sponsored by Democrats Sen. Jessie Ulibarri of Commerce City and Rep. Jovan Melton of Aurora, argue that people who are here illegally are driving anyway, and that it’s in everyone’s best interest that they can do so lawfully. During the legislative process, bill supporters cited data from other states that have similar laws, such as Utah and New

Mexico. Statistics from those states indicate that the numbers of insured motorists rose substantially after the laws were enacted. “You’re gonna have to have a driver’s license that allows people to drive to get to work … to make sure they have insurance, make sure they can testify in an automobile accident (court hearing), but at same time identifies that they aren’t full citizens,” Hickenlooper told reporters on June 5, the day he signed the legislation. The law, which takes effect in August, requires those applying for these types of licenses to show certain forms of legal documentation, such as an ID from their native countries, and proof that they have filed state and federal income taxes. That’s in addition to standard driving tests. The bill did not garner a single Republican vote in the General Assembly. And three Democrats voted against the bill in the House of Representatives. Sen. Kevin Lundberg, R-Berthoud, said during an April 10 Senate committee hearing that he didn’t think the bill would make roads safer, and worried that more people would come to Colorado illegally for the driving privilege.

A blue Suburban that had been dropped off over the weekend at an automotive shop in the 6300 block of East County Line Road in Highlands Ranch was discovered broken into May 28 when the shop owner of the shop returned to work. The driver’s side window was smashed out and papers were scattered all over the truck. A 2003 Kia was reported broken into later that same day. The vehicle had been parked in front of the Whole Foods on South Colorado Boulevard in Highlands Ranch in the middle of the day, and when the owner returned to the car from an ap-

pointment at a nearby tanning salon, she discovered her driver’s side door lock had been damaged and her purse was stolen from inside the vehicle.

The 107-year-old Fly’n B House off Plaza Drive in Fly’n B Park in Highlands Ranch was broken into sometime between the dates of May 27 and 31. Deputies believe the front door of the soon-to-be renovated home was smashed in by a boulder. There was graffiti seen on the interior walls that had been previously reported.

l Firefighter labor bill signed er Compromise measure allows ballot issues, discussions on safety By Vic Vela

vvela@ourcoloradonews.com

In one of his final actions taken on bills that passed the Legislature this year, Gov. John Hickenlooper on June 5 signed into law a measure that expands labor rights for firefighters in Colorado. new- There was uncerty oftainty as to whether de ofthe governor would sign Senate Bill 25, essaidpecially after he had tion,threatened to veto the neworiginal version of the Hickenlooper bill earlier this year. f theFormer Gov. Bill Ritter manvetoed similar legislation while he was tate-in office. But Hickenlooper did indeed proandvide his signature to the Colorado nateFirefighter Safety Act, two days before morethe deadline passed for all bills to be envi-signed into law. party The law allows Colorado firefightCallers to have bargaining discussions on f en-issues pertaining to job safety, regardless of whether individual municipalioing rate , was this rural s, he

ties prohibit collective bargaining. However, the legislation does not mandate collective bargaining rights on compensatory matters, such as salary, as was laid out in the original version of the bill. Nor does it mandate union organizing without a vote taking place in that particular community. Hickenlooper said the final version of the bill was a compromise that he could accept. “Clearly we had to do something to allow firefighters to meet and confer,” Hickenlooper told reporters after signing the bill. “It doesn’t make it any easier for them to get collective bargaining ....” The legislation gives professional firefighters the opportunity to put labor rights issues on the ballot and allows them the opportunity to openly participate in the political process — something that is prohibited by some

municipalities. Republicans argued during the legislative process that the bill usurps the authority of local governments to make bargaining rights decisions on their own. And the Colorado Municipal League criticized the governor’s decision to sign the legislation. Hickenlooper took issue with those concerns in a written statement that was distributed to reporters following his remarks. “As we witnessed last summer, firefighters from various locales were deployed to risk their lives outside the boundaries of their own immediate communities,” Hickenlooper wrote. “Their safety and the effectiveness of their equipment and training are a matter of mixed state-local concern.” The bill was sponsored by Sen. Lois Tochtrop of Thornton and Rep. Angela Williams of Denver, both of whom are Democrats.

The eight men and women, in their 70s and 80s, work intently, dipping brushes into Styrofoam cups of water, swirling them into the chosen hue of their watercolor paints, then stroking the color onto paper. Intermittent conversation and laughter interrupt the tranquility. They are grandmothers and grandfathers, a hydrologist, a children’s vocational nurse, a dentist, an FBI secretary. All in varying stages of dementia or Alzheimer’s, they share the painful reality of a fading mind. They’ve come to their weekly painting class, where they sometimes discover lost memories, but always find companionship and joy and moments of peace. “So much of this disease is hard and sad,” says Sara Spaulding, spokesperson for the Alzheimer’s Association of Colorado, whose husband died at 63 in 2010 of Younger Onset Alzheimer’s after battling the disease for 10 years. “This program, however, offers light and laughter … not only to the participants but for their families.” The program is Memories in the Making. It provides archival supplies — the same brushes, paints and 140-pound paper used by professional artists — to participants, who with guidance from volunteer artists, create art that often correlates to hidden memories. Research shows short-term memory generally declines first, while the part of the brain associated with distant memories is often the last to go. Art and music are among the few ways a patient — whose confusion has impaired verbal skills — can still communicate. “They have a point of contact,” Spaulding says. “They’re not able to really remember family and friends. But looking at the art … they’re talking to the volunteers, to each other. It keeps the brain active. That socialization is really important. Then there’s the self-esteem. They have a purpose — to come to class to create something.” The volunteer artists don’t do any of the work. They might help a hand close around a brush or suggest direction. But “we never draw a line,” says Lisa, who volunteers at Emeritus Denver, a care facility in southwest Denver, one of 45 in the metro Denver-Boulder area that offers the program. Kim Franklin runs Memories in the Making at Emeritus Denver. A former hairstylist who worked her way from styling residents’ hair to life enrichment director, she believes God brought her here to help guide residents “through their final journey home.” “I put myself in their shoes,” she says. “Can you imagine at 88 years old, going to a door and it’s locked and you can’t get out? I just want to give them that dignity here …. They kind of go into another world when they’re painting.” John George looks at a photograph of an old Lincoln as he dips his brush into the black circle of paint in his watercolor box. John, once a hydrologist, is 82 with a deep gravelly voice and a gray mustache that matches his hair. “I’m not much of an artist,” he says. “I just go slow.” He peers through his glasses, compar-

ing to the background behind the angel. “More blue sky,” Bettie, 80, agrees. “Not too much. I’ll thin it out.” “See,” Kim says, “you do a good job.” Bettie, her once jet black hair now completely white, blots water off her sky. “See the box there?” Kim asks, pointing to the box cradled in the angel’s hands. “What is the box supposed to be?” Bettie wonders. “I was going to say it’s the FBI’s secrets.” “Oooooh,” several people around the By J table say. jreut “What color box would the FBI have?” Kim asks.

At one state time, she did paint. But what her children “W remember most is how she made flower on i sculptures from discarded aluminum sheets, how she decorated objects with paper cut-outs, how she loved music and even tap-danced. “She was always creating something or trying to create something,” says daughterin-law Eileen Van Zetten, Barry’s wife. Born in Kansas, she traveled with her family to many rural areas during the Great Depression and came to love the outdoors. Her paintings often reflect that inspiration By J and her deep faith, her family says. “I can see her spirituality in them and jreut her love of the outside,” Eileen says. “For all So of us, it’s a way to see that what she’s actuelect ally thinking and feeling is beautiful.” curre For the auction, Bettie’s landscape, they a mountain scene draped in blue, gold Coun and green hues that she named “God’s to th Beauty,” was paired with a photograph from renowned Colorado nature photogra- twee pher John Fielder.

Courtesy photo by Lisa Hut ing the painting to the photograph. “I’m just transferring some data from that nice photograph to something less than nice. I’m trying to figure out what to do with the grill.” He hums, a throaty low rumble, and dabs his brush on a paper towel. “This is not gray enough,” he says of the grill. Then: “It’s fun to fool around. Be sure we’re taking this as seriously as necessary, calling it a fool-around. Paul’s good. Paul’s the talented one of the group.” Paul Schoolcraft sits across the table, a blue cap on his head. He is intently sketching a sailboat in front of a train on a bridge. Various photographs of trains and sailboats are scattered around him as he glances from them to the paper and back again. A former dentist, now 85, he is so focused he doesn’t respond. “How old am I?” John asks in response to a question. “You’re 27,” answers a woman with cottony white hair painting at the next table. Bettie Van Zetten smiles. John laughs. “Turn it around. More like 72. Wait — more like 74!” “Best review,” he says, looking at his painting, “this is a no-talent thing. Patience — patience is more important than talent.” With a little urging from Lisa, John talks about a long-ago passion for cars. “As a young man I worked on cars,” he tells her. “That was the only way you could keep them running.” A painting he completed some time ago, depicting a lake with a lighthouse, brought back memories of days spent at his grandparents’ lakeside home in Michigan, tales his family hadn’t heard in a while. “We’re able to pull from them these nuggets of memories,” Spaulding says. “It’s a real bright spot for families.” His painting finished, John closes his watercolor box. “You’re an amazing artist,” Lisa says, studying the Lincoln, shaded in varying tones of black against an eddying backdrop of green bushes. “Well,” John says, “thank you. It’s fun.” Not every painting elicits recollections for the artists. And “sometimes, you never know if the stories are true or not,” Lisa says. “But then you get to the point where it doesn’t mat-

ter, because it’s true to them.” Although John, who had never picked up a paintbrush before starting the class about 1½ years ago, will say he’s not talented, he is. “He’s a really, really good artist,” Lisa says. He’s so good that two of his paintings were selected for the annual Memories in the Making auction, held last week in Denver. Some 4,000 pieces are submitted from program participants throughout Colorado. Juried by professional artists, about 75 are selected. Some are then paired with 30 professional artists, who choose a piece of artwork and reinterpret it the way they see it. Morrison artist Margaretta Caesar, who paints with oils, has participated for about four years. She still remembers the first time she walked into the exhibition room with tables covered in “magnificent” watercolors. “We were told to find the one that speaks to us. But you look at the mixture of talent — the joy, the passion, the emotion — and on the backs are little stories about their inspirations. You just get so moved by it.” This year, John’s painting of a steer called “The Steer Leader” captured her interest. A longhorn lives not too far from her home. But even more than that connection, “what really grabbed me was the composition. The artist really nailed it …. He had worked very, very hard to capture the color in the background. I just thought the piece was top-notch.” For families, selection of loved ones’ art for the auction, which raises more than $400,000 for the association statewide, is an optimistic moment. “Often the call that comes from a care facility is about a new difficult behavior or yet another loss of skill or memory proving challenging for the staff,” Spaulding says. “The call from one of our volunteers letting them know a watercolor created by mom, dad or a spouse has been selected for the auction brings a moment of joy, and once they see the piece, often of wonder that a loved one created something beautiful with no previous art ability — and warmth for a memory shared.” Before the auction, a tea is held for participants where they see their work displayed. John attended with his wife, Lee. “The Steer Leader” was one of the showcase paintings. “He had a hard time understanding why people were making such a fuss over him,” Lee says. She told him the painting was his. “But I didn’t do that.” “John, that’s your signature.” John’s big hobby throughout his life had been photography. And, Lee says, he always had a good sense of light and space, which seems to have translated into his new pastime. She’s watched how he enjoys painting. “He’ll spend a long time — his attention is fixed right in the painting the whole time he’s doing it,” she says. “He is amazing.” But John, like many others, doesn’t remember what he paints. Bettie Van Zetten bends toward the paper, concentrating, brushing small black strokes along the outline of an angel, sketched from the small, wooden figure on the table. “Do you think you want to do some blue up here?” Kim Franklin encourages, point-

School board responds to evaluation concerns Members stand behind system, but ready to improve where needed By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com Despite the controversy and protests sparked by the Douglas County School District’s new teacher evaluations, board president John Carson doesn’t believe the program is intrinsically flawed. “No. I have great confidence in the principals of our school district,” he said of the program DCSD created. “They’re the ultimate deliverers of those ratings. “Obviously, this is the first go-round. If there are Carson areas that need to be improved, we’ll improve that.” Nor does he regret implementing the program a year before the state deadline for new teacher evaluations. “We’re not interested in plodding along on important innovations,” Carson said.

“We think we have a system that we can build on as we go forward. I think we did the right thing. “I think it’s a vast improvement over what we had, which was basically a system in which everybody is rated and paid exactly the same, regardless of their teaching skills. We will base everything on performance and results.” Board members said they were pressed to roll out the system under Colorado Senate Bill 191, which requires new evaluations statewide. It allows districts to create their own evaluations — as DCSD did — instead of using the Colorado Department of Education’s model. But Senate Bill 191 doesn’t require full implementation of the new evaluations until the 2013-14 school year. The CDE is piloting its Colorado Model Evaluation System for two years before putting it into action this fall. Instead of piloting its program or waiting another year, DCSD rolled theirs out during the just-concluded academic year. “The alternative was to take the state system,” Carson said. “You talk about a lack of understanding

and bureaucracy — the state’s was much more convoluted and complex. We chose to develop our own. I think in the long run that’s going to be viewed as a very smart decision.” In the short run, it’s triggered high emotion among parents, students and staff at some schools, and contributed to the loss of several teachers who cite the evaluations among their deciding factors. DCSD’s system assigns teachers a rating ranging from “highly effective” to “partially effective,” and ties pay increases to those results. Though percentages will vary based on several points, the district says all teachers will get some boost in compensation. About 15 percent of teachers districtwide received “highly effective” ratings, with the vast majority — 71 percent — rated “effective.” Results weren’t consistent throughout the district. In Highlands Ranch, longtime Trailblazer Elementary principal Linda Schneider gave 70 percent of her staff “highly effective” ratings, while new Saddle Ranch Elementary principal Ryan Craven didn’t assign that designation to any of his teachers.

At least two schools reported a seemingly disproportionate percentage of “partially effective” results. School board vice president Kevin Larsen said those deviations can’t be ignored. “The evaluations have to be accurate to make it work,” he said. “It’s absolutely our goal to look throughout the system and say, `Were these done with consistency and integrity?’, no matter if they’re high or low. I think in this first year, we have to examine what went well, what can be improved, and make this continue to be a better system going forward.” School board member Meghann Silverthorn agreed. “I do recognize this is a not a perfect instrument and we need to make changes,” she said. “I think the lessons learned are extremely valuable. While I don’t think it was ideal, I think the way we did it was basically necessary. Implementing a change in public policy is always a challenge.” Larsen said he’d like to set up community meetings before the new school year begins to further explain the changes. Carson and Silverthorn said they also are open to such meetings.

Departing teachers share their thoughts Educators cite morale, changes, environment By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com Some teachers trace it back to the 2009 election of four Republican Party-backed current school board members — which they say began a sea change in Douglas County School District operations; others to the failed summer 2012 negotiations between the district and teachers’ union. But all departing teachers who spoke about their reasons for leaving point to changes initiated by the district’s current board and administration. Teachers said they’re not opposed to the idea of education reform, or all of DCSD’s new policies. The changes simply are coming too fast, with too little explanation, they say. Following are a few words from several departing teachers.

John Kissingford

Chaparral High School English teacher and department chair, accepted a new position in the Ouray School District. Ten years in DCSD. Rated “highly effective.” “I’m more heartbroken about the direction the district has gone than personally frustrated. The administration has created such a toxic atmosphere, such an adversarial relationship between teachers and administration, and frankly, such an atmosphere of fear. It’s a heartbreaker. “While I and many teachers really feel like a lot of the reforms are valid, (the) means of implementation has been so heavy-handed and so autocratic that there are huge structural problems. It pushed me out the door. Since the union now is effectively disempowered, we feel like we have no voice in these decisions. Much of this agenda could have been enacted effectively in a collaborative way with teachers. “I would say somewhere between 80 and 90 percent of seasoned teachers would leave this district if they financially could. Most people cannot afford to take a huge pay cut. I’m going to take an enormous pay cut.”

Barb Dignan

Highlands Ranch High School theater teacher, retiring early. Fifteen years in

‘Leaving is possibly one of the best ways I can fight. Teachers are leaving, and parents are starting to realize and question what is happening in the district. It’s personal now.’ Debby Smith, sixth-grade teacher at Flagstone Elementary

DCSD. Rated “effective.” “The district people are very good at packaging everything very nicely and making it look good. Whenever the district speaks, they say the emperor has clothes on and we’re saying, `No, he doesn’t.’ We in the trenches know how bad things are, how things are falling apart. “The district wants to put all this on the union. That’s bull hockey; that’s just a diversion. I love my students. I’m just done with the whole bureaucracy.”

verthorn) and Justin Williams were elected to the board. It has been steadily going downhill since. The real slap in the face came when the district refused to work with the union. What’s happening at the district office and the board of education — the trust is totally gone. “Working with the kids is where we get the strokes we need to continue. I could (teach) for a long time yet, but I don’t want to work for that board of education anymore.”

Debby Smith

Brian White

Flagstone Elementary School sixthgrade teacher, accepted a position in Cherry Creek School District. Fifteen years in DCSD. Rated “highly effective.” “I want to be somewhere where the first and last question we ask is, `What is best for kids?’ I don’t feel like that question is being asked anymore in our district. The first question seems to be about, `We’ve got to be the first ones in the nation doing this.’ It seems kids have been taken out of the picture. “The evaluations, which seemed to continue to change throughout the year, the salary bands, the market pay — it doesn’t make me feel respected as an educator. “Part of me is saying that, sadly, leaving is possibly one of the best ways I can fight. Teachers are leaving, and parents are starting to realize and question what is happening in the district. It’s personal now.”

ThunderRidge High School social studies teacher, accepted a job with Littleton Public Schools. Four years in DCSD. Rated “effective.” “For me, the biggest concern would be that these reforms they’re pushing here are not going to do anything to improve teaching and learning in this district. Teachers here are under attack. Public education in general is under attack. “Another big issue for me is the climate and morale in this district is just horrible.

My first year here was the first year of this current board, and at that time, DCSD was what I call a destination district for teachers. Clearly, that’s changed. It’s not just how many teachers are leaving, but who they are — the quality and experience. These are teachers I never thought would leave.”

Pam Pitman

Clear Sky Elementary kindergarten teacher, leaving the teaching profession. Nine years in DCSD. Rated “effective.” “It was such a hard decision because I love the kids. But I cannot work for a district that just philosophically goes against my beliefs. “It’s the way things are presented; they have thrown stuff at us. A good teacher always lets students help the process of what they’re going to learn about because they have buy-in and they think they had a say in the manner. They don’t take that into consideration. There’s a wall coming up between teachers and the district. Eventually kids will suffer.”

Jenna Southern

Flagstone Elementary learning specialist, accepted a job with Littleton Public Schools. Six years in DCSD. Rated “effective.” “There’s a lot of turmoil district-wide and it was really interfering with my teaching. I feel like it’s coming from the district level and how much change they’ve put in place. It doesn’t feel like change that’s best for kids. “More so than money, I’m going to Littleton for the support they’re offering me. I’m looking forward to the change, but I don’t think I’ll ever find teachers as great as these.”

Parker indoor gun range underway Owner vows safety will be priority at new facility By Chris Michlewicz

cmichlewicz@ourcoloradonews.com Parker’s first indoor gun range is set to open by the end of the year. Work on the 35,000-square-foot Freedom Arms Shooting Range began May 28 as the mayor and members of town council helped owners Chris and Tracy Kamp break ground near the corner of Twenty Mile Road and Longs Way. Freedom Arms will start out with 13 backstops and add nine more in the future. Roughly 7,000 square feet is reserved for retail space, where firearms, accessories and merchandise will be sold. Features such as a state-of-the-art ventilation system will ensure the circulation of clean air, and a trolley system precludes the need for shooters to walk down range to inspect targets. The backstops are capable of taking a .50-caliber round, however, Chris Kamp says such high-powered weaponry won’t be allowed. Armor-piercing bullets are also prohibited, and ammunition will be checked before customers step onto the range. AR-15s and AK-47s will be allowed. Chris Kamp says there will be heavy emphasis on safety. A range officer will monitor all activity and a series of surveillance cameras will further keep dangerous be-

Freedom Arms will offer a wide range of training classes for kids and adults, and new customers will get a free training session and initial instruction from a range officer. Members will receive a free safety check on their weapon upon request. In spite of plans to open across from Railbender skate park, a place that kids and

teens frequent, the indoor gun range has not received any opposition. Chris Kamp, who has lived east of Parker on the Douglas-Elbert county line, says even though the state legislature has enacted new gun control measures, there is strong local support for gun rights. “Douglas County as a whole is a pretty

House Approves Coffman’s Improving Job Opportunities for Veterans Act On May 21st, the U.S. House Representatives passed H.R. 1412, the Improving Job Opportunities for Veterans Act of 2013, with overwhelming bipartisan support. The legislation was introduced by U.S. Representative Mike Coffman (R-Colo) in response to his concerns for the growing number of unemployed Iraq and Afghanistan veterans. “As a Marine Corps Combat veteran, I understand the unique experiences and challenges of armed services members returning home from abroad. It is imperative that we maximize the opportunities for the thousands of young men and women returning from Iraq and Afghanistan,” said Rep. Mike Coffman The Improving Job Opportunities for Veterans Act will increase the availability of on-the-job training and apprenticeship programs to help veterans make the transition to the civilian workforce. This legislation builds on an existing, yet little known and under-utilized, on-the-job training programs that help veterans learn a trade or skill by participation in an approved apprenticeship or on-the-job training program. “The on-the-job training benefit within the New GI Bill, which we strongly supported, is one of the most underutilized benefits available to veterans for job skills

training. IAVA stands ready to support and promote innovative ideas like this to end the veterans’ unemployment crisis once and for all,” said Tom Tarantino of Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA). Congressman Coffman explained that, “We have nearly 400,000 veterans in Colorado and unemployment for them, especially young returning veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan between ages 20 and 24, was 19% in April. These young individuals have great leadership capabilities and unique skills sets they learned while in uniform but need help in connecting to opportunities in the domestic job market.” H.R. 1412 will incentivize employers to reach out to veterans because the legislation authorizes the VA to pay a portion of the veteran’s salary for the first two years while the veteran is gaining on the job skills and certifications. “Companies in my district have told me how beneficial this legislation can be for their operations because they know that veterans are hardworking, team-oriented individuals who are capable of learning the highly technical skills that are prevalent in many industries,” said Rep. Mike Coffman. Ken Anderson, Chief Executive Officer of Tri-State

Colorado SBDC launches “Connec2DOT” website for small businesses in the transportation industry

The Colorado Small Business Development Centers Network (SBDC), in partnership with Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT), launched the Connect2DOT website this week (www.connect2dot.org). Connect2DOT provides free consulting, training and online resources for small businesses in the transportation industry. It is managed by the SBDC and funded by CDOT. The new website, which offers quick and easy access to essential information on doing business with CDOT, is part of Connect2DOT’s ongoing efforts to provide small and disadvantaged contractors with quality information and educational tools necessary to grow and succeed. “The SBDC helps small and medium-size businesses with all aspects of their business, and for us to branch out to assist with providing more resources in this specialized area of transportation makes perfect sense,” said Kelly Manning, State Director of the Colorado SBDC Network. “We are thrilled to partner with CDOT and help our businesses advance in this area of expertise.” The website is organized to help contractors that are just getting started and those that are looking to build their business. Resources have been collected from various sources and consolidated into one centralized location, making it easier to find CDOT project opportunities, get certified as a small business, connect with prime contractors, and register for relevant training and events.

“The launch of the Connect2DOT website marks a key milestone in our overall plan to expand small business resources to communities throughout Colorado under the direction of the Colorado SBDCs. There is now a one-stop online resource for contractors that puts all of the information they need to compete for CDOT contracts right at their fingertips,” said Greg Diehl, Manager of the CDOT Civil Rights & Business Resource Center. Other features of the website include an industry-wide event calendar, an interactive map of statewide SBDC locations, an opt-in bid matching system, and an email newsletter. Please visit www.connect2dot.org for the best and most up-to-date information on small business contracting in the Colorado transportation industry. As the program evolves, Connect2DOT kiosks with website access, monitors and printers will be placed at strategic locations throughout the state. One such kiosk will be placed at the South Metro Denver Small Business Development Center located at the Chamber. These kiosks will be free to use by any company interested in growing their business in the transportation industries. “We are excited to host one of the Connect2DOT kiosks at the South Metro Denver SBDC. We will have a consultant dedicated to assisting clients grow their businesses in the transportation industry,” said Marcia McGilley, executive director of the South Metro Denver SBDC. The Colorado SBDC is a partnership between the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade, the U.S. Small Business Administration, Colorado’s institutions of higher education, and local development organizations.

big hunting county and shooting-enthusiast county, and so is Elbert County,” he said, adding that shooting is one of the fastestgrowing sports in the nation. “There is good demand and I have run into nothing but excitement for it.” Sport shooters in Parker will be glad to have an indoor range closer to home. The closest indoor facilities are in Centennial and Castle Rock, and there is an outdoor range at Cherry Creek State Park. Indoor ranges remain open year-round and shooters don’t have to contend with the elements, especially rain and wind. Freedom Arms is being built in a lightindustrial area and Kamp says he does not expect any disturbances, noise or otherwise, to affect neighboring businesses. The exterior of the building will also be well-lit to bolster safety. The Kamps plan on having introductory training sessions that will be open to the public once the range opens near the end of the year. Educational outreach will be a big part of Freedom Arms’ mission. “We want to bring awareness to people who don’t know much about (shooting),” Kamp said. “We want to show them that the gun itself is not bad, it’s the people behind the gun.” For more information about Freedom Arms Shooting Range, visit www.freedomarmsshootingrange.com or call 720-441FASR.

Generation and Transmission Association said “As an employer of 152 veterans, the Improving Job Opportunities for Veterans Act of 2013 will provide an U.S. Representative Mike Coffman important tool in the continuation of our efforts to reach out to those men and women who have served their country and place them on a promising career path.” This legislation passed alongside several other bills concerning veteran issues and each will now move to the Senate for consideration. “I hope the Senate sees the value of my bill because it helps connect companies to a great pool of available talent returning from military service,” said Rep. Coffman.

The nnial Pressure from Rowley Downs homeowndoorers prompted town council to reconsider a doorplan to build a new Parker Task Force facilihoot-ty near the entrance of their neighborhood. ents, Town council announced a decision May 28 to ask the nonprofit task force to return ight-the property that the Town of Parker donats noted for the new building in December. The ther-8,000-square-foot facility was proposed . Thenear Mainstreet and Stonehenge Way, on ell-litthe east side of town hall. “Although it was the town council’s decision to resolve the disputed issue in this ctory o themanner, the council is committed to assistending the task force in identifying and acquiring a new site in order to meet its current partand future demands for services,” a statement from the town says. eople The homeowners said they believe there ng),”are more appropriate town-owned propt theerties that could be donated to the Parker hindTask Force, which provides underprivileged Douglas and Elbert county residents with domfood and support services to help them beedo-come self-sufficient. -441- The town says the task force agreed to

‘To put a warehouse/commercial facility (at the proposed location) would certainly diminish the beauty and possibly lower my property values and the value of the “new” downtown Parker.’ Rowley Downs homeowner David Janecek comply with council’s request to return the one-acre property. Diane Roth, volunteer spokeswoman for the task force, said the move puts the organization “back at square one.” “Of course we’re disappointed by the decision because it’s a setback for the Parker Task Force,” she said. Residents of Rowley Downs sent emails and attended council meetings in recent weeks to voice their disapproval. They also started a Facebook page called “Keep Downtown Parker Historic.” In a letter to members of town council, David Janecek summed up the concerns in the neighborhood. “To put a warehouse/commercial facility (at the proposed location) would certainly diminish the beauty and possibly

lower my property values and the value of the ‘new’ downtown Parker,” Janecek said. “I think the plot of land should be designated as open — keep it as a park, anything but a warehouse.” Councilman John Diak, who was not yet on council when the land donation was approved, said he had to get up to speed on the project. The land came with deed restrictions that required the task force to follow “historic center development guidelines” for the downtown district. Diak said the proposal for the new facility would have required the current council to waive certain standards. But it was the “public swelling” and “discontentment” from residents that caused council to reach a tipping point, he said, and council engaged in closed-door discus-

sions before deciding to request the land back. Rowley Downs residents are relieved that their worries were addressed and some have praised Parker Town Council’s decision. “We appreciate the wonderful work the Parker Task Force does, and we’re extremely grateful to the mayor, town council and Parker Task Force for hearing our concerns and seeking a better location for the food bank,” said homeowner Michael Roueche. Roth said the decision to ask for the land back was not explained to her, but she came to the assumption that council “reversed what had been a unanimous decision based on the outcry from the neighborhoods.” While she is disappointed, Roth said she will take the town up on its offer to identify another property for the new facility, and Diak reiterated council’s commitment to follow through. Roth will also continue the capital campaign to raise money to build the expanded task force center. Until a task force presentation to the Rowley Downs Homeowners’ Association that resulted in the uproar, the new facility was on pace to open by the end of this year. There is no desire to sell the land or build anything on it until a need arises, Diak said, adding that a future expansion of town hall is possible.

opinions / yours and ours

Happy Father’s Day from an imperfect dad This past year has been very enlightening for me as I look back over the past 12 months and remember how I reacted or responded to the trivial as well as the major challenges and opportunities presented to me by my children. Some may argue that the larger issues or problems are still really just small or trivial in most cases and just blown out of proportion by an over-reactive father or parent. And I would have to plead guilty as charged. And as I recall conversations with other parents over the past year I have been reminded that it’s not just my children who get into trouble or make mistakes, it seems as though we have raised an entire generation of trouble-seeking and mistake-prone children as my friends and neighbors all share similar stories. That old saying, “misery loves company,” could apply here, but I really have found no comfort in thinking about it that way.

I love my children dearly, and I would have to agree that in most cases I could have responded better instead of overreacting and making things worse or under-reacting and not doing enough. The life lesson in this for me is to learn how to take the time to respond instead of react. I know they sound very similar and some would say that they mean the very same thing. The difference, I believe, is found in the way we think about each word.

question of the week

How do you travel with kids or pets? Colorado Community Media asked four people in the Arapahoe Lake neighbor-

hood for their best tip on traveling by car or plane with kids or pets.

“Entertainment. Entertainment. Entertainment. And keep it charged.” — Elizabeth Price, Englewood

“I try to make sure we’re all prepared before we even leave the house. Everyone is fed, has all their stuff … and then I pack blankets, pillows, snacks and water.” — Jodi Page, Englewood

“Be aware of the temperature inside the car. … If you have to stop, make it brief, park in the shade, crack the window and always have fresh water for the animal.” — Jody Schmidt, Lone Tree

“I don’t really travel with my pets, but I do think it’s important to always leave them in good, dependable hands and with someone you trust.” — Mark Wienckowski, Wautoma, Wis.

That’s not what I’m talking about I have no idea when “I have no idea” replaced “I’m not sure.” Most of the time when we say we have no idea we do have an idea, but “I’m not sure” is simply not as melodramatic. All I know is that I am tired of hearing “I have no idea.” I am at the end of my rope. I am at my wits’ end. It has become another “overly conventionalized linguistic expression,” and nearly a cliché by now. Most things that are said, you know, over and over become annoying, at least to a few of us who listen when someone is talking. What would you think of anyone other than Rodney Dangerfield who started every thought with “I have no idea”? Rodney could get away with it, because he would tug at his necktie, jerk his head, and say, “I was so ugly when I was born that the doctor slapped my mother.” Elocution has gone the way of handwriting. Most of us no talk so good no more. We get by, because it’s no longer expected to be any better. Ah, but when it occurs it can be wonderful. There are some things that are said over and over that I never get tired of hearing. For one, “I love you.” Unless it’s from Mr. Holly Martins in area rugs. We resort to clichés because they are familiar, handy, and readily understood. Few of us have a gift for making ourselves understood without them. That’s what I’m talking about. That’s one of them right there. It was somewhat clever 10 years ago. Now it’s a nuisance. The French gave us the word “cliché.” It comes from typesetting, and the reuse of single slug of metal for phrases that were used repeatedly. “A cliché is often a vivid depiction of an abstraction that relies upon analogy or exaggeration for effect, often drawn from everyday experience,” a Wikipedia entry says. “Used sparingly, they may succeed, however, the use of a cliché in writing or speech is generally considered a mark of

inexperience or a lack of originality.” It’s not rocket surgery. It’s been a hard day’s night. Abstinence makes the heart grow fonder. See? Clichés and other phrases can be turned around, inverted, and even made into a malaprop (another column). Shakespeare referred to the “comprehension of two auspicious characters.” There is a song, “Please Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood,” and few of us want to be misunderstood, so it’s much easier to speak the tried and true (like “tried and true”) than to go out on a limb (there’s another) and offer something obtuse. But it can be fun when you connect, and the more you try to connect the dots (another) the better your chances are. You can’t win if you don’t play, although Fran Lebowitz said she has the same chances of winning the lottery whether she plays or not. I once quoted Wayne Gretzky at an AA meeting, “You miss 100 percent of the shots you never take,” and later thought that was a mistake. Words and phrases sometimes cross over from our occasional use to habitual use, and some of us don’t even know it, or seem to mind, that they can be mindnumbing. If I hear the word “transparency” one more time, applied to the IRS, for example, I will have an ax to grind. But it occurred to me that it might be kind of nice to be the father of a cliché, to be the one responsible for generating Smith continues on Page 11

If we were to get sick and our doctor prescribed a medication that caused us to break out in a rash or some other side effect, it could be said that we are having a “negative reaction” to the medication. Conversely, if we were prescribed that same medication and started improving immediately, we would say we were “responding favorably” to the medication. And as a dad, I can look back over the past 12 months as well as an entire lifetime and remember all the little mistakes and huge errors I have made. And thankfully my children have not over-reacted, they have simply responded and loved me and forgiven me in the same way that I have loved and forgiven them. That is the wonderful thing about forgiveness, it goes both ways, and it goes such a long way in building and sustaining loving relationships with our family and friends. And forgiveness costs us nothing when we give it, but costs us everything

when we withhold it. If you are one of those dads or parents that I have spoken with or exchanged emails with or that just feels like you have had a brutally tough year with a noncompliant child, trouble-attracting teen, or mistake-magnet kid, just remember that as big as each of those challenges seem, at the end of the day they are all just trivial. And it’s not about how we react, it is how we choose to respond, love and forgive that will be the difference-maker in all of our relationships. Happy Father’s Day! I would love to hear all about how your Father’s Day weekend goes at gotonorton@gmail.com, and let’s respond our way to a better than good week.

Military must fight sex crimes The United States military is the most capable and most professional fighting force the world has ever seen. At its core are our men and women in uniform, whose selfless service and sacrifice for the cause of freedom is the main reason Americans have held the military in such high regard. Time and again, they rise to the occasion to defeat and deter America’s enemies. Yet while this fine institution is adept at meeting external threats, I am troubled by its inability to defeat and deter a grave threat from within: the epidemic of sexual assaults and sexual misconduct in our military. In January, at a House Armed Services Committee hearing on sexual misconduct, I challenged several senior military leaders on this problem. I voiced my concern that we need to change the culture that allows this misconduct to take place; that leaders must hold their subordinates accountable; that we must face these incidents with moral outrage so this behavior stops. This is why the House Armed Services Committee, on which I proudly serve, is supporting tough measures in this year’s annual National Defense Authorization Act to fight sexual assault in the military by holding perpetrators accountable and better protecting the victims. The measures proposed in this year’s defense bill will move us toward our goal. Some of the measures I support include: • Removing a commander’s ability to change or dismiss a court-martial conviction; • Limiting a commander’s discretion to modify or lessen a sentence; • Increasing transparency by requiring the commander to provide a detailed

Disaster drill helps hospital prepare Parker Adventist takes part in large-scale exercise By Chris Michlewicz

cmichlewicz@ ourcoloradonews.com Preparing for a mass-casualty disaster can be something of a science. Parker Adventist Hospital was among 20 organizations that took part in a large-scale drill in which 150 mock patients were transported to metro-area medical centers June 5. The Federal Coordinating Center Denver Reception exercise was meant to test 11 hospitals on their ability to handle multiple patients at one time. The drill brought together some of the local, regional and federal authorities and agencies charged with caring for victims of a disaster. Among the top priorities for officials was the testing of communications systems and procedures. Parker Adventist’s emergency department was filled with the sound of tones and calmly spoken alerts over hand-held radios, as well as discussions about the duties of hospital staff members when a “code gray” is issued. It announces the implementation of the disaster plan. The scenario acted out

June 5 was a frightening one: It was based on an EF-5 tornado striking Wyoming’s two primary medical centers, leaving them unable to care for current patients or take in new patients. Patient transports went through Denver International Airport, and volunteer victims were taken by eight ambulances and 10 helicopters to various hospitals. The hospitals were notified about the number of patients en route and the severity of their injuries. Parker Adventist received about 15 mock patients. Molly Duffy, safety and emergency preparedness specialist for Parker Adventist, spent six weeks planning for the drill with department heads. It was one of two disaster drills that take place each year, and the objective is to identify and fix any flaws in the system before the hospital is faced with a real mass-casualty event. It was tested last July after the Aurora theater shooting. Duffy’s own 3-yeardaughter, Lyndy, was among the mock patients treated at Children’s Hospital Colorado at Parker Adventist Hospital as part of an exercise that helps doctors and nurses work on their communication skills with children. At the urging of her mother, Lyndy, shares the well-rehearsed line she is supposed to say to the med-

an Inspector General to investigate all allegations of retaliatory actions taken in response to making protected communications regarding rape, sexual assault, or other sexual misconduct. The important legislation discussed above has broad, bipartisan support, and it takes a more aggressive approach to addressing sexual assault and sexual misconduct in the military than we have seen in previous defense bills. Some members of Congress argue that these measures do not go far

enough — that the disposition of all serious criminal cases should be handled outside the chain of command. While I understand their concern, I believe they go too far — we should not throw out the baby with the bathwater. What makes our military justice system unique is that it entrusts commanders with the duty to enforce “good order and discipline.” Surely lawmakers can work with military leaders to devise a system that meets Congress’ intent to hold perpetrators accountable, protect victims, and maintain good order and discipline. To accomplish their missions and defend this country, our men and women in uniform must be

ed to scream and pretend to writhe in pain to make things realistic and to test the medical teams’ ability to identify injuries and operate in a stressful environment. “If we don’t make it as real as possible, we’re not going to learn anything,” said Lisa Woltering, the emergency department’s charge nurse and disaster preparedness specialist. A unified response is perhaps the most critical component of successfully processing a large number of patients. Roger Rewerts, the FCC Denver coordinator, said the goals include “enhancing capacity, building sustainment and creating surge for receiving medical facilities.” A follow-up debriefing enables hospital staff to give feedback on what went well and what did not, and a team of evaluators observes the action and takes notes.

ter-action report” is generated and disseminated to hospital leaders, who can then make any necessary changes. Training sessions are a regular occurrence at Parker Adventist. In addition to the two disaster exercises, the hospital conducts 12 fire drills and two infant abduction drills, as well as security assists and lockdowns. While the departments often get notice for major exercises, there are some that go unannounced. Lyndy Duffy is already a veteran volunteer. She has been the subject of surprise abduction drills in which the staff is tested on their response. With her mother in sight, Lyndy is kidnapped by an actor and screams to get the attention of staff. Watching the reaction of the staff members is gripping, Molly Duffy said. “She’s never made it off the floor,” she says.

Art show opens at ACC Photos, paintings, 3-D pieces on display

By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com As artists and friends gathered in the Colorado Gallery of the Arts at Arapahoe Community College on May 30, music floated through the room. The ACC(h) ord(e) Ensemble, composed of eight faculty and student musicians, performed for the opening reception of the annual Community Education Arts Show. One whole wall displays work by the instructors for the Community Education courses and the other three walls hold a variety of student works: photographs, paintings and a few three-dimensional pieces. The juror was Rachel Bayse, a local artist and executive director of the Art Students League of Denver. The exhibit runs through June 27. In photography, first place went to Jeff Bradley for his crisp black-and-white image, “Inside the Guggenheim,” shot from the top, showing the spiraling walkways. Second place went to Lou Sisneros’ “Pato Pato,” a duck swimming, and in third place was “Lost Horizon” by Delores Taylor Dentsch The 3-D works showed a first place to a handsome woven “Antler Basket #1” by Alahana Pacifico, with deer antlers curved

Davis Peticolas’ “Saw Whet Owl,” carved from wood, with copper and acrylic, won second place, and an Award of Merit purple ribbon was given to “Shelling,” an intricate polymer clay relief sculpture by Lou Sisneros. Student painting first place went to Nancy Hubbard’s oil still life, “Ready for an Omelette,” hung just to the right of the entrance. Second place was won by Karma Dingman’s watercolor “Reflection”; third place to David Shantz’s oil “Dazzling Aspen.” An award of merit went to “One Boot,” a pastel by Mary Ann Lillis, and another to “Creek in Winter,” executed in powdered charcoal by Kathi La Velle. The instructors included photographers Richard Steckel and Linda Sorrento and painters Valorie Snyder, Bobbi Shup, Rosanne Sterne, Joy Schultz, Michael Carroll, Dean Adams and Caroline Carroll. They offer an interesting variety of techniques, capably presented — a good reason to visit the show for anyone considering enrolling in a class.

Transit Administration grant, it increased to 40,000 in 2012. “Part of the challenge is we are playing catch-up, trying to get ourselves back to the level of transit services that we were providing previously,” said Jennifer Eby, the county’s community and resource services manager. “We are working with all the different partners and certainly everybody has been really stepping up and collaborating well to increase the number of rides this year.” The county is the lead partner of the 21-organization Local Coordinating Council which includes transit providers, communitybased organizations and each of the county’s municipal jurisdictions. The LCC consists of a volunteer driver program, the Castle Rock and Parker senior centers, as well as some for-profit entities. The LCC works efficiently, says Matthew Helfant, the county’s

transit mobility program manager, because the entities work together to fill in one another’s gaps in terms of geographic reach and operating hours. Despite their coordinated efforts, a telephone survey sampling indicated that approximately 6,500 seniors and individuals with disabilities missed work in 2011 due to a lack of available transportation and roughly 20,000 county residents in those specific populations missed medical appointments for the same reasoning. “This funding will enable us to provide more services,” Helfant said. “We simply don’t have the services available that meet our growing needs.” According to Helfant, if the county gets approved for the grant, funding could be available as early as this October, but most likely would kick in January 2014. For more information on the LCC as well as transit options available to qualifying individuals, visit www.dctransitsolutions. com or call 303-660-7519.

The monument, he said, is for all of them. But if not for donations, it never would have been possible, he said. With only a handful of donations that came in at more than $1,000, it was the smaller donations and citizens such as South Ridge Elementary School sixth-grader Jaydon Pinon — who

raised $526 selling chocolate bars — that saw the project through to fruition. And don’t think just because the mission has been accomplished, the Douglas County Veterans Memorial Foundation is ready to break up the band. The foundation will host its second annual poker run June 30 and raffle off a Harley-Davidson motorcycle valued at $21,000. “We want to do some philanthropic things,” said Vietnam veteran and board member Bob Rotruck. “If a veteran needs help with his house, or needs a service dog, or we can do a scholarship for his kids. We’re not done just because the sculpture is up.” For more information about the poker run or the foundation, please visit the website at www.dcvmf.org. There will be a formal monument dedication on-site at 10 a.m. Aug. 3.

What is the most challenging part of what you do? I love working with both buyers and sellers and can usually be reached at any time. It’s difficult for me to take time off because I want to always be available.

Where were you born? I am a Colorado native, born at Fitzsimons Hospital and have lived in the metro Denver area most of my life. How long have you lived in the area? I live in Douglas County, more specifically in Lone Tree for 14 years. What do you like most about it? Lone Tree has a small town feel with all the amenities that you would expect to find in a much larger city. There is a new Arts Center, world-class shopping at Park Meadows, several restaurants, new tennis courts, pools and miles of trails for hiking and biking. In a recent survey of residents, 98% of respondents rated the overall quality of life in Lone Tree as “excellent” or “good.” I have found it to be an exceptional place to raise a family.

I am also involved in the Lone Tree Arts Commission, Public Arts Committee, Cultural Arts Foundation and work on many fundraising events. What is one tip you have for someone looking to sell a house? Make sure your home is ready when you put it on the market. The good homes are selling quickly so you want to de-clutter, price correctly and work with a realtor that has everything available to them to best market your home to get the highest price possible. What is one tip you have for someone looking to buy a house? If you are thinking about buying a home, now is the time. Interest rates are low and there are great homes available. The home you buy today will cost you more later. You also need to talk with your lender before you begin your search so that when you find that perfect home you ready to act. What is the most unusual thing you’ve encountered while working in Real Estate? I was previewing a home and was told there was no alarm. Upon entering the home, the alarm sounded. Therefore, I went to the front porch to wait for the police. When they arrived and were comfortable with me being there, the officer mentioned that he is thinking about buying a home in that neighborhood. I showed him the home, we made an offer and he purchased the home.

Garage organization 101:

Stage all parts of your home when selling W

hen putting your house on the market, a properly staged garage can make all the difference! Garages are highly coveted across the country, offering a space to park a car and protect it from the elements, however, they tend to become the official catch-all of a home. When an item cannot be crammed into a hiding space elsewhere, it often ends up dumped into the garage. Organizing a garage will take some time. An entire weekend or two consecutive days may be necessary depending on the level of disarray. Taking everything out of the garage and going through the sorting process may take the most time. When sorting, separate any broken items, which can immediately be put at the curb for trash or recycle pick-up. Examine things that you have not used in some time. If you haven’t missed it, there’s a good chance that you can discard the item or donate it. Create separate piles for donations and trash. Move the items that will be kept into a separate pile. After all of the trash and donations are removed from the premises, then you can look at what is remaining and begin planning out a more organized storage system. There may be things in

the “keep” pile that are simply out of place in the garage and may be better stored elsewhere. Think about which items can be moved to a basement or attic because of their infrequency of use, such as holiday decorations, suitcases, and collectibles. You may prefer to move lawn and garden items out of the garage and into a shed in the

peal. Rolling tool caddies and cabinets can keep all tools neat and in organized drawers. A cabinet that has a lock and key can be utilized for dangerous chemicals that need to be kept out of the hands of children and away from pets. Think about how the garage will appear from the curb when the door is raised

and create a design that will be functional and neat. Potential buyers will notice this organization, better allowing them to see their belongings in this space. Take the opportunity while the garage is empty to give walls and floors a fresh coat of paint and improve the lighting in the garage. A brighter garage makes for a better work station.

For those who can use a little extra help, there are professional garage organization companies that can come in and install custom cabinetry and work surfaces. This can raise the value of your home, too. Organizing a garage can be tedious, but the reward is ultimately worth the effort. ■ Metro Creative Services

Sip, sample, stroll LoDo

Patrick Geipel of Elbert keeps a tight hold on the rope during his June 7 bull ride at the Elizabeth Stampede. Xtreme Bulls was the Stampede’s opening-night rodeo. It attracted an all-star lineup of rodeo cowboys, including six bull-riding qualifiers from the 2012 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas. Photos by Deborah Grigsby

Boots, bulls big bucks and

In its 49th year, the Elizabeth Stampede rodeo attracts some of the top talent across the country. Nearly 100 of the 287 contestants in the three Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association events over the June 7-9 weekend were former world champions, National Finals Rodeo participants, or Circuit Finals challengers. This year’s Stampede again welcomed Xtreme Bulls, a professionally sanctioned bull riding event that pairs up the country’s best riders with the toughest bulls on the circuit, for thousands in prize money. Winners will go on to the Xtreme Bulls World Finals to be held in Ellensburg, Wash., over the Labor Day weekend. More than 300 volunteers helped make the Stampede possible.

Miss Rodeo Colorado Sarah Wiens, of Sedalia, steadies the state flag in the wind June 8 as she prepares to lead rodeo royalty into the arena before the start of the day’s rodeo competitions during the Elizabeth Stampede. Photo by Chris Rotar The Cheyenne Dandies, fresh from Cheyenne, Wyo., kick off the opening ceremonies for the 2013 Elizabeth Stampede. The 16-girl precision riding team delighted attendees with some extra fancy hoof-work prior to the June 7 Xtreme Bulls competition.

You can enjoy a night in historic Lower Downtown, walk the neighborhood and enjoy small bites of the restaurants’ fare during LoDo Bites. At each stop, participants will enjoy varied cuisines with some restaurants offering select wine, drink specials and signature desserts. This popular annual event in LoDo will return on June 25 from 5 to 9 p.m. Tickets are $35 in advance, $45 the day of the event. Group sales are available at a discounted price of $30 sold in blocks of 10. Or you may mail a check to: LoDo District, Inc., 1616 17th St., Suite 478, Denver, CO 80202. Make checks payable to: LoDo District, Inc. Your ticket assigns you a restaurant indicating where to begin your tour. From there, you have up to four hours to sample the fare of 25 LoDo restaurants, bite by bite. Limited tickets will be sold, so don’t miss out on this hot ticket. Participating restaurants for the event, sponsored by LoDo District, Inc., include some of Denver’s finest, such as Bistro Vendome, Euclid Hall, Coohills, TAG, The Squeaky Bean and Vesta Dipping Grill. Visit www.lodobites.com/index.html to learn more about LoDo Bites or check out all 20 of LoDo’s finest dining venues.

Jackson tribute

Michael Jackson fans won’t want to miss The Ultimate Thriller — The Michael Jackson Tribute on June 21 at Red Rocks Amphitheatre. The concert is crafted from the best sets, costumes, dance moves and musical arrangements of the Bad and Dangerous tours. The Ultimate Thriller presents an enduring tribute to the King of Pop. The concert features big production values with a live band, backup vocalists, design lighting and a troupe of dancers choreographed by LaVelle Smith Jr. and Mic Thompson, who spent several years performing with Jackson. The Ultimate Thriller will take audiences through a Jackson music repertoire including “Jam,” “I’ll Be There,” “Rock With You,” “Black or White,” “Bad,” “Beat It,” “Billie Jean,” “Thriller,” “Man in the Mirror” and more. To sample music and video on the band, go to www.theultimatethriller. com/promoter. Tickets are $32 for general admission (plus service charges) at www.ticketmaster.com, or to charge by phone call 303-296-1212.

Painted Cats charity event

A handful of carnival ride and attractions, like this bungee jump spider, gave the Elizabeth Stampede’s vendor alley a sense there was something for everyone. The Stampede is a legend in the small rodeo world, having been named best small rodeo in the country for two years running.

The Cat Care Society debuted its “Tails of the Painted Cats” summer tour in May, but it runs through July 11 and the fundraiser concludes with a July 20 gala event and auction at Pinehurst Country Club in southwest Denver. The painted cats were designed and painted by various Denver-area artists and cat lovers. Douglas M. Tisdale (the honorable mayor of Cherry Hills Village) will serve as auctioneer and my favorite weatherman, Channel 4’s Ed Greene, will be emcee the event. For more information, visit www.

Families gear up for Parker Days Downtown festival offers hometown feel

parker days highlights • Street performers and buskers, including jugglers, fire performers and “live” statues, will again be part of the action.

By Chris Michlewicz

• Radio Disney will pump out music from the O’Brien Park gazebo from noon to 5 p.m. June 15 and 16.

cmichlewicz@ourcoloradonews.com Kids and adults alike are counting the days until Parker’s most prominent summer blowout. Now in its 36th year, the Parker Days Festival is known for delivering memorable days and nights filled with thrilling rides, exhilarating games, hip-shaking live music, succulent food and plenty of people-watching opportunities. The 2013 incarnation has all of the attractions of years past, plus a few experimental features. Starting with a carnival sneak preview June 13, Parker Days runs through June 16, taking over O’Brien Park, downtown parking lots, vacant properties and streets. It’s the perfect way for school kids to kick off their summer break, but there is a bit of nostalgia involved for longtime festivalgoers. Those who grew up with Parker Days as a seminal part of their summer are now returning with their own kids. Like their parents did, they make sure that the second weekend in June is blocked out, so as not to mistakenly schedule a conflicting family vacation. Joshua Rivero, a town council member who has lived in Parker for 24 years, describes the atmosphere as that of a “huge neighborhood block party.” He runs into old high school friends, visits booths for impulse buys, listens to music and takes in the revelry.

• The PACE Center will have daytime programming and have five professional chalk artists on hand creating masterpieces. • More than 100 classic cars will be on display downtown during the Parker Car Fest from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. June 16. • Wright Amusements, the longtime contractor for amusement rides, is coming with 45 carnival attractions. • At various times, four separate stages will host country line dancing, belly dancers and mini game shows.

Riders shriek as they descend rapidly on Super Shot, one of the many carnival rides set up for last year’s Parker Days Festival. File photo The festival has been an anchor for Parker and presents an opportunity to “showcase” the town to outsiders who might be considering a move to a place with a true hometown feel. Organizers made a few tweaks this year. The KYGO-featured country music act, Tyler Farr, is playing on the main stage on Friday night instead of Saturday. Sara Crowe, event coordinator for Events, Etc., which was contracted by the Parker Chamber of Commerce, said the main music act was moved to Friday to help spread out the crowds. There is already a built-in audience on Saturdays. Chamber leaders are expecting around 120,000 people, although that number

hinges largely on the weather; Crowe is keeping her fingers crossed for “perfect, 82-degree” days and calm nights. The festival is the chamber’s largest annual source of revenue, and much of the money comes from alcohol and ticket sales. Additionally, the 2012 Parker Days Festival generated an estimated economic impact of $1.5 million for the downtown district. Kicking off the festival weekend is the annual parade, which has 73 entries of all kinds this year. It starts at the Parker Arts, Culture and Events Center at 10 a.m. and travels along Mainstreet before following the Victorian Drive loop. The parade will feature mascots from

• Between 350 and 400 volunteers will pitch in to help the festival go smoothly. • Three recycling bins will be set up, including two near the main stage, and Boy Scout troops will help man the bins to make sure no trash is thrown in them. • Kids can look forward to the ever-popular swimming pool hamster balls and bounce houses. • A strongman competition is set for 11 a.m. June 15 near the main stage. Denver’s professional sports teams, royalty from Colorado’s pageant circuit, the Chaparral High School band, plus local kids and service organizations. One-day passes for the carnival are $25 when purchased in advance at www.parkerdaysfestival.com and $30 on site. Mega Passes good for carnival rides all four days cost $60.

Fawlty Towers Hotel has room for laughs British TV farce onstage in Denver By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com Time: 1977; place: Fawlty Towers, a Victorian hotel in Torquay, England, operated by one Basil Fawlty and his wife, Sybil. Four segments of the popular British TV series, written by John Cleese (Monty Python) and Connie Booth, are packaged for an onstage visit with cranky Basil Fawlty and his various guests and staff. Acts are called “Hotel Inspectors,” “The Anniversary,” “Communication Problems” (my favorite) and “Waldorf Salad.” All take place on Colin Roybal’s two-story Victorian set — quite a feat if you go in the small Bug Theatre “A Night at Fawlty Towers” where Equinox is presented by Equinox Theatre ComTheatre Company through pany performs. June 15 at the Bug Theatre, Director Shan3654 Navajo St., Denver. non McCarthy Performances: 7:30 p.m. manages to Friday, Saturday. Tickets: $22 move a large ($20 advance).

catcaresociety.org/paintedcats.html. Here’s the list of the remaining “Tails of the Painted Cats” summer tour: • June: Tennyson Street Cultural District, plus other metro Denver locations (for example, Broadway Betty will be at PISMO Fine Art Glass in Cherry Creek) • June 29: Festival of Felines, Cat Care Society, 5787 W. 6th Ave., Lakewood, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. • July 11: Fascination St. Fine Art in Cherry Creek, 315 Detroit St., wine and cheese reception (admission)

considerable skill, although some scenes are so busy, they are hard to follow. But silliness reigns throughout, so one just rolls with it. Matt Maxwell’s quarrelsome Basil Fawlty manages to be rude to all his guests and gets similar treatment from forceful Mrs. Richards (Carole Maschka), who issues orders and doesn’t want to turn on her hearing aid because it will run down the batteries. She doesn’t like her room and thinks she’s been robbed …. Her ocean view is right there, Basil says, “Between the land and the sky!” Questions/misunderstandings about money, identity, food and drink (including screwdrivers and Waldorf salad) and general day-to-day operations give assorted dingbat guests a chance to shine. Comic timing skills are not quite there at all times, but presumably those skills will improve as the show continues its run. It’s hard to maintain the level as written by comic genius Cleese — and keep a consistent British accent going too. Hotel waiter Manuel (Mark Shonsey) is especially funny and Sybil Fawlty has a fine snort with her laugh. Company director Deb Flomberg designed a nice collection of costumes and makes a couple of brief appearances in the cast.

Three generations meet nature’s miracle ‘Baby’ explores reactions to world of pregnancy By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews. com What a joy it is to see this little gem of a musical — “Baby” — with its lovely score and clever lyrics, played by a top-notch cast. Cherry Creek Theatre has scored again! “Baby,” with book by Sybil Pearson, based on a story developed with Susan Yankowitz, music by David Shire and lyrics by Richard Maltby Jr., is a pleasing contrast to the prevailing mega-musicals that are on the road. But is does mean each actor must shine — and they do. Three couples each expect a baby and have different reac-

if you go “Baby” plays through June 23 at ShaverRamsey Showroom, 2414 East Third Ave., Denver. Performances are at 7:30 p.m. Fridays, Saturdays; 6:30 p.m. Sundays. Tickets: $28/$25. 303-800-6578, cherrycreektheatre.org. (We’d suggest advance reservations on this one as seating is limited.) tions and subsequent stories. An ensemble fills in assorted other roles with skill. Director Pat Payne has pulled the production into a fine-tuned package in the attractive but limited space at Shaver Ramsey Rug Showroom, with a pair of pianos tucked to the side and production logistics enhanced by veteran designer/director Richard Pegg. Choreography by Piper Arpan is low-key and fits the space.

Alan and Arlene (Brian Walker Smith and Megan Van De Hay) are a mature couple with three grown daughters. She is alarmed and contemplating abortion, while he is thrilled at the prospect of a tiny new family member. Nick and Pam (Scott Severtson and Shannon Steele) are 30-something active sports people who are having trouble conceiving, and college juniors Danny and Lizzie (Drew Hirschenboeck and Emily Ann Luhrs) have just moved in together are not ready for a child — but adjust their lives and ambitions in quite mature ways. Each of these characters is presented with depth and skill, which makes an evening of satisfying theater. Many in the audience will relate to some part of these stories.

‘Colonus’ revisited J.R. Pinon Olinger Andrews Caldwell Gibson Chapel

Q. Why does one funeral home charge more than another for traditional services? A. At first glance, it may appear that all funeral homes essentially offer the same services. However, with a traditional funeral, including the visitation and funeral service itself, the amenities offered may differ greatly from one provider to the next. To determine the better value, a simple price comparison is rarely enough. For instance, we offer an unequalled selection of services not available at many other funeral homes, such as assistance with your family’s travel accommodations for the funeral, as well as access to our grief management library and licensed grief counselors at the Compassion Helpline®*. We do this because providing your family peace of mind is our top priority. Pricing is naturally a concern when choosing a funeral home, but I encourage you to consider the true value and the home’s ability to provide the level of service your family needs and deserves. Your best choice is a funeral home that provides high quality care with compassion and respect, offers additional services to ease your family’s mind, and has earned a solid reputation through years of experience. When you are informed of what you get for each price, you can make a better decision about what’s right for you. Jerald “J. R.” Pinon is the Location Manager at Olinger Andrews Caldwell Gibson Chapel, a member of the Dignity Memorial® network serving the Castle Rock community. He frequently offers funeral-related advice and counseling to area families. For information or to ask a question, contact J. R. at 303-688-3191. *Compassion Helpline is provided by Charles Nechtem Assoc, Inc. CastleRk_FF_ JR_PriceDiff_5,04x4,125.indd 1

Each story is appealing, touching and, in particular, about love, without being cloyingly sweet. The ensemble fills in assorted

characters, notably Ben Dicke’s doctor who tries to advise Nick and Pam in a particularly inept manner.

Dignan found that the is atblack kids didn’t know his history rdenand she wanted them to know

him. She is proud of students who went into theater careers: a lighting designer on Broadway and others in tech programs. A number of former students are working in Los Angeles, Chicago and New York City, and one is with Showtime sports entertainment. Another teaches high school theater on the East Coast, and Dignan counts an associate producer on Broadway among her former students. Six graduates were accepted to the University of Northern Colorado’s prestigious acting program, with one full-ride scholarship. (The program only accepts 30 new graduate students a year from as many as 2,000 applicants.) Two more from the 2013 class have been accepted. Jan Wilusz, a good friend who started creating costumes when her own child was in Dignan’s productions, held a surprise retirement party where alumni came from near and far — some even flew in. As Dignan retires, her love of theater is undiminished and she dreams of starting a local theater company. She doesn’t plan on large-scale musicals. “I want to do small shows with good scripts, a good story,” she says, and is certain there will be interested par-

ticipants among the many former students in the area. “We will need corporate help,” she realizes, and she will need to find or create a venue — hopefully somewhere in Highlands Ranch. She has a collection of costumes and props she personally paid for in the 13 years she produced theater at Highlands Ranch High School, and she speaks especially fondly of props. If she were to go another direction in the theater world, it would perhaps be props. Dignan was discouraged as a young person from studying theater, although her mother was a German actress. She graduated from Georgia Southern in special education and used creative energy in crafts when a young mother with babies. She first taught special education and ninth-grade English at Highlands Ranch, while taking theater classes at Denver Center Theatre Company and at University of Northern Colorado in the summers. After predecessor Wally Larson retired, she began in the theater department, building a department where the students came to hang out as well as act and learn technical theater. “There is nothing I could have loved more,” she declares. She

Dog park, disc golf course proposed No ruling yet on 38-acre site near E-470, Jordan Road By Chris Michlewicz

cmichlewicz@ourcoloradonews.com Parker pooches could soon stake their claim to new romping grounds. If the sell-out crowds at the annual Barker Days canine pool party are any indication, there is demand for more dog-related amenities in the Town of Parker. The parks and recreation staff presented a proposal to council in May to build a 5-acre dog park on the north side of Pine Lane between South Parker Road and Jordan Road, and just south of E-470. Council budgeted $250,000 this year to build the dog park. The town has been waiting to see whether a proposed development in the vicinity will be moving forward. Dennis Trapp, projects administrator for the rec department, said the development com-

pany has discussed donating 13 acres of its land even if the project does not get off the ground. That land, in addition to 25 acres dedicated by the Cherrywood Apartments to the Town of Parker as part of development requirements, would create a 38-acre park. Five acres would be used for a dog park — with 2.5 acres being open at any given time to allow the other side to re-vegetate — and recreation director Jim Cleveland suggested that the remaining land could house an 18hole disc golf course. A disc golf course requires little maintenance and would add a component to the recreation system that the town does not have. The course and dog park would be adjacent to each other and be accessible by the Cherry Creek Regional Trail, which runs along the east side of the proposed park. Many Parker dog owners visit Bayou Gulch Regional Park, a 2-acre off-leash park near Ponderosa High School, or the Glen-

dale Farm Open Space along Interstate 25 north of Castle Rock. Finding the appropriate spot for a dog park is a challenge because many nearby homeowners don’t want to deal with the associated odors or other impacts. The proposed park is in an ideal location because it is next to two apartment complexes, and those residents need a place to let their dogs run, Cleveland said. It also is outside of a flood plain and would not disturb habitat protected for the Preble’s meadow jumping mouse. In addition to requests for a dog park, the recreation department gets regular calls about adding a public disc golf course. The sport is growing in popularity and a course would be a fun, low-cost amenity that can be created fairly easily because the existing topography on the property lends itself to such a use. Mayor Mike Waid, who joked by saying he could envision dogs chasing the discs, suggested using Great Outdoors Colorado

funds from Colorado Lottery proceeds to help fund the park. Much of the cost would come from the construction of a parking lot, although a less expensive gravel lot is an option. The remaining funding for the disc golf course could be budgeted in 2014. Town council has not given direction to the recreation staff and it’s not clear when a decision will be made. Councilman John Diak, who has lived in Parker for 30 years, said a public disc golf course would offer something different for Parker residents who want a variety of activities. Councilman Josh Martin asked whether the recreation staff had explored putting a nine-hole par 3 golf course on the land. Cleveland said a golf course would be more costly and require hiring specialized staff members, in addition to regular watering and maintenance. The size of the combined properties also would not provide sufficient space.

‘He knows I take baseball seriously. He knows I’m pretty committed to both sports.’ Brody Westmoreland

I’m just working on developing myself as a baseball player and see what different things and aspects I can do to better myself,” he said. “Once I get back at the end of the month, I’ll start participating in 7-on-7s every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday the rest of July.” Westmoreland threw for 1,702 yards and 13 touchdowns last fall for the ThunderRidge football team, which was a Class 5A semifinalist. He also rushed for 735 yards and 12 TDs. “We run the ball a lot with our offense, so this opportunity to do 7-on-7 gives us more of a time to incorporate our fast-pace, nohuddle offense,” Westmoreland said. “During our 7-on-7s we can run more of our two-minutes drills, get those passing routes down with the short and long routes. “I get in a little trouble overlapping baseball and football, but luckily my coach is lenient with me and knows I put in a lot of work. Once I get back from going out of state and playing baseball, all my time is dedicated to football.”

twisters make for memorable trip

Girls softball team forced to take shelter in Oklahoma

n

has ho By Jim Benton years jbenton@ourcoloradonews. are com ds, ound A recent out-of-state trip by en the DC Jaguars 14Under girls ting softball team had a twist to it. nvited The team, mostly made up of ngs Douglas County middle-school rsday players, was in Oklahoma City t The and primed to play in the Oklale homa Challenge tournament -2358. when multiple tornados passed d by through the area May 31. “We were eating in a resery rry St., taurant and the sirens startme. Call ing going off,” said coach Liza Rosa. “We had to evacuate the restaurant. They sent us to an orough underground parking convensday in tion center. We were told to get ntary against the wall because a tor6. nado was coming. ety “We were down there for 3½ hours waiting for the tornado rday to come by and clear us. It was Pam headed our way. I’m not sure Hermanhow close it got. When they said tion. it was coming and to get close to the wall, it veered and went

southwest. It didn’t go over us in the parking garage. We were very lucky.” Lucky but scared. “The girls were scared,” recalled Rosa. “None of them had experienced a tornado before. They were scared because they just didn’t know what was going to happen. It was the unknown. They were upset. Some of them were crying. All the girls had their parents with them. We had little kids there too. “ Rosa, however, had a reassuring talk with a woman who was also waiting out the storm in the parking garage. “You didn’t know if we were in the safest place, but this lady that was standing next to us was from Oklahoma and she said she was here in ‘87 and it was a bad tornado and this place did not fall down and the tornado went right over us,” said Rosa. “So that made us feel a little better. She said, `It’s not coming down and we’re going to be fine.’” The scenes on the way back to the hotel after the tornadoes had passed will surely leave some memories. “When we went back to the hotel, all the lights were out

on the street,” said Rosa. “You would come up on a tree, a car or something that you would have to go around and there was flooding everything. We got back to the hotel and we didn’t have any lights. We were in the dark. “Afterwards, the girls would hear a certain sound and think it was a siren. You could just see the fear in their eyes.” All tournament games were postponed June 1, and the Jags played two games on June 2 and three on June 3. The team finished fifth in the tournament. “Considering everything that went on, the girls did phenomenal,” bragged Rosa. “We finished fifth out of 39 teams. It was very different. The College World Series (women’s softball) was going on. Although we had a real bad experience Friday (May 31), since we didn’t have any games Saturday (June 1), the girls were able to go to some World Series games and get autographs. “One of our players when we were down in the parking garage got autographs of all the Arizona State team. They got sent down there too. So despite everything that happened, there were a few good things that happened.”

sports roundup local golfer qualifies

Chris Korte of the Lone Tree Golf Club was one of two qualifiers in the Boys 15-17 division in the two-day qualifying tournament, which concluded June 6 at Pelican Lakes Golf Club in Windsor, Colo. Korte, a Highlands Ranch student who will be a senior at Regis Jesuit, will now play in the Callaway Junior World Golf Championship July 16-19 at Torrey Pines in San Diego. A student at Jake’s Academy in Lone Tree, Korte took medalist honors with rounds of 1-under-par 71 and 3-under-par 69 for a 4-under-par 140 two-round total. Callie Ringsby and Hannah Wood qualified for the Callaway Junior World tournament in the Girls 15-17 division. Ringsby, the Class 5A girls state champion from Cherry Creek, took medalist honors in the two-day qualifying event that wrapped up June 6 at Flatirons Golf Course in Boulder. Ringsby, representing the Denver County Club, had rounds of 65 and 74 to finish with a 1-under-par total of 139. Wood, an Arapahoe High School golfer from South Suburban Family Sports, had rounds of 71 and 69 to finish a stroke behind Ringsby at 140.

Hayden and George Nicholaides, listed out of the South Suburban Family Sports golf course, finished third in the CGA Father-Son Championships June 8-9 at Redlands Mesa in Grand Junction. The Nicholaides duo fired a 2-under-par 70 in the first-round Chapman Scotch format and finished with a 72 in the alternate-shot setup on the final day to finish at 142, seven shots out of first place. Hayden Nicholaides will be a senior golfer at Lutheran when school resumes.

horacek tabbed by orioles

Former ThunderRidge pitcher Mitch Horacek, a junior southpaw at Dartmouth, was selected in round 10 of the Major League Baseball draft by the Baltimore Orioles. It was the second time Horacek has been tabbed in the draft. The Colorado Rockies picked him late in the 2010 draft. Horacek, 6-foot-6, 210 pounds, was 6-2 in the spring for Dartmouth with a 2.20 earned run average and three complete games. Opposing batters hit only .241 against him and he had a 4.2 strikeout-to-walk ratio that was the second best in the Ivy League.
