Mayoral selection stays with council only

DougCo expands helicopter service contract

Public still won’t have input into selection, but process will ensure correct reporting of vote By Virginia Grantier

vgrantier@coloradocommunitymedia. com When Castle Rock Town Council in 2012 voted at its organizational meeting for a mayor and mayor pro tem, there was no public input asked for — something Councilmember Chip Wilson expressed concern about at the council’s most recent meeting. Another issue raised: Paul Donahue — current mayor — won by a vote of 4-3, which the town later reported to the public as being a vote of 7-0, a concern raised by Councilmember Clark Hammelman. The 7-0 vote was actually the council’s second vote taken to ratify the ballot result of 4-3. Town council at its Feb. 4 meeting discussed the possibility of changing that process because there had been concerns raised about it — and then on March 11 voted 6-1 to make the change. No longer will council take a second vote to ratify the ballot vote, and so it will be the ballot vote that is reported. But there will still be no public input allowed. Wilson, the only one to vote against the change, said he voted that way because he was concerned about the public being kept out of the mayoral selection process. He said the council seeks “public input

New agreement part of county’s ‘hard, heavy, fast’ wildfire strategy By Hannah Garcia

hgarcia@coloradocommunitymedia.com In anticipation of yet another dry fire season, the county is expanding the scope of a contract it has with a helicopter service used to fight wildfires. At a March 11 meeting, the county commissioners unanimously approved a request from the Office of Emergency Management to replace the existing agreement with Rampart Helicopter Services. The new contract would expand exclusive use time period for up to six months starting on April 1 through the end of September. Under exclusive use, the service is guaranteed to be available when needed in case a wildfire ignites in Douglas County. The new agreement also expands the scope of services to law enforcement, public safety and searchand-rescue missions. The agreement is an improvement on last year’s agreement, which limited the exclusive use time period to two months, according to commissioner Roger Partridge. The county can also still use the company on a call-when-needed basis. “It’s an insurance policy,” said Tim Johnson, Douglas County director of emergency management. “These guys are very busy. There’s a possibility that they would be gone during a critical time” and would be unavailable without the exclusive-use provision. The expanded agreement is part of the county’s wildfire prevention

strategy, with commissioners and emergency management staff citing a refrain of “hard, heavy and fast” to describe its plan. Annual costs will not exceed $806,500, according to the contract. Last year the county budgeted around $300,000 for the service and used $229,000. The preventative cost is offset by the possibility of greater loss in the event of a catastrophic fire, Partridge said. The new agreement comes after wildfires have struck surrounding counties in the last few years, such as the Black Forest fire in El Paso County that killed two people, destroyed hundreds of homes and caused hundreds of millions of dollars in damages. The cost to fight the fire in El Paso County last year was around $9 million. “I don’t think it ever became as obvious to me (how necessary the service is) until tragedy struck surrounding counties,” commissioner Jill Repella said at the meeting. “The aftermath is a negative hit to a county’s budget.” The county commission also awarded payments in lieu of taxes, federal funding for local governments that help offset property tax losses from non-taxable federal lands within their boundaries, to five fire districts that provide coverage for the Pike National Forest Lands in the county. The county has paid $50,000 to these Fire continues on Page 9

State’s Supreme Court to hear voucher case District’s program introduced in 2011 remains on hold through judicial process By Jane Reuter Rampart Helicopter Services fights an area fire in 2012. File photo

jreuter@coloradocommunitymedia.com The Colorado Supreme Court will hear the Douglas County School District voucher case. It issued an order March 17 granting that request from several plaintiffs in the original 2011 filing. The case likely won’t be heard until late summer or early fall, an attorney working for one of the plaintiffs said. That distant date — or the 11 months it took the state’s high court to render its Voucher continues on Page 28

Never too late to dream, discover a gift Three times she almost quit. The inspiration wasn’t there. Unlike the others in the class, she had never painted, and the challenge of creating something worthy seemed quite overwhelming. In all her 94 years, Jean Barron hadn’t even picked up a paintbrush. She knew nothing about art, didn’t much care for it, had determinedly avoided art museums. But that was before Cézanne’s “The Blue Vase.” And a teacher who broke the work into manageable, unintimidating parts that seamlessly fit together, like pieces of a puzzle. When Jean was done replicating the masterpiece, she looked at her canvas with the blue vase and flowers, fruit scattered on the table. “Did I really paint that?” she thought. “It was just amazing.” Three years later, Jean is passionate about painting. Her work is so good that local TV and newspapers are telling her story. She understands the reason they’re interested is because she discovered this talent so late in life. But then, “to be learning something new,’” she says, “that’s what keeps us young.” Jean, who celebrated her 97th birthday March 18, will tell you she feels quite young. She’s in total agreement with the popular notion that 60 today is the new 40. “I am so blessed with health and, usually, a fairly sound mind,” she says with a slight smile. “I don’t know where the time has gone. I can’t believe I’m as old as I am, and I never expected to be around at this age. … But I don’t feel like I’m older than 60. I don’t feel like I’m 97, my goodness.”

That self-appraisal is encouraging. I, too, recently celebrated a birthday. And like, Jean, I also feel much younger than my 54 years. It turns out that impression isn’t unusual. The older people get, the younger they feel, according to a Pew Research survey. “Moreover,” the report said, “the gap in years between actual age and `felt age’ widens as people grow older.” Nearly half of survey respondents 50 and older said they felt at least 10 years younger, but among those between 65 and 74, one-third felt 10 to 19 years younger and one in six said they felt at least 20 years younger than their age. A New York Times blog in 2008 talked about a study that found people 70 and older generally thought of themselves as 13 years younger. “This concept of how you feel about your age is so important and defines, in a way, how we act,” said Jacqui Smith, a psychologist at the University of Michigan Institute for Social Research, who was interviewed in the story by Tara Parker-Pope. “If you self-define yourself as someone who is old, then you probably act that way.” Another Pew study found more than

two-thirds of Americans would like to live to between 79 and 100 years old, with the median desired life span being 90 years — about 11 years longer than the U.S. life expectancy of 78.7 years. And statistics show, adults 60 and older — because they are healthier and more active — are living longer. So: We want to live longer. We are living longer. We are living longer better. I like that prognosis, that extended lease on life, because I worry about not having enough time to fulfill my constantly renewing pot of dreams. I hope to be like Jean — healthy, creative, still learning, still looking for new experiences. On this afternoon, she walks slowly, steadily, down the hall to her apartment. She has just returned from a bus trip to the Mayan exhibit at the Museum of Nature and Science. She sits on her sofa, slightly out of breath, but soon recovers. She moved to Colorado from Ohio seven years ago, 21 years after the death of her husband, to be near her two daughters. The days go fast: Exercise and yoga three to four mornings a week, art class every Thursday afternoon, other activities and excursions interspersed. Depending on the week, she spends two to three afternoons painting at the easel she sets up at her kitchen counter. She prefers oils to watercolors because she can more easily correct mistakes. The time she spends coaxing the canvas to life seems almost to stand still. “I get so absorbed. … I lose all track of time — almost a sense of wonder. I guess it’s the creativity and appreciation for the gift that God has given me.”

Since she began, Jean has completed 39 paintings, mostly landscapes, some for her daughters, a handful for friends, many of the Scottish countryside that links her to her heritage. Many hang on the walls throughout her apartment. “I look at my work and I can’t believe I did it, but, well, I didn’t do it,” she says. “The Lord and I did it together. I kept asking the Lord how I could glorify him more in my life, and this was His answer.” That faith, which takes away her worries and stress, is key to her longevity, she believes. “That’s the biggest secret of a contented, healthy, long life.” Needless to say, Jean looks at art differently these days. She enjoys art museums, is curious about the masters and their styles, is fascinated by their different brushstrokes. In her bedroom hang two paintings she did of Monet landscapes, one of a boat on water, the other of a landscape, also with water in it. “I learned he painted on water,” she says, with a touch of wonderment. “He had a boat and he just floated around and did his painting.” That, she says, would be difficult to do. But then, she only has to paint at the easel in her kitchen to find herself transported to a place where there is just the brush and the canvas — and the miracle that comes with it. Ann Macari Healey’s column about people, places and issues of everyday life appears every other week. She can be reached at ahealey@coloradocommunitymedia.com or 303-566-4110.

District 3 race pits four hopefuls Incumbent Councilmember Jennifer Green faces opposition from three other candidates By Virginia Grantier

vgrantier@coloradocommunitymedia. com Castle Rock Town Council has four seats available. Last week Colorado Community Media featured the candidates for the District 6 and 7 seats. This week, candidates for the District 3 and 5 seats are featured. In District 3, incumbent Jennifer Green is running for a second term. She has three challengers: Jennifer Bennett, Stephen Muller and Gordon Rollins. The following are introductory stories and Q&As with the four candidates for District 3. Each candidate was asked the same questions by Colorado Community Media. The election, which is April 1, will occur by mail. Ballots were sent to active registered voters this past week. There are no town-wide issues on this ballot so voters who do not live in one of the four districts will not receive a ballot. Voters within this year’s voting districts who do not receive a ballot, or who need their ballot mailed to an address other than the one at which they are registered, should call the Town Clerk’s Office, 303-660-1367 or email smisare@CRgov.com.

Jennifer B. Bennett

Bennett, 42, grew up in a military family that moved to various East Coast locations. She aspired and worked toward being a teacher but ended up with a law career — first as a regulatory attorney in Washington D.C., then with her own estate-planning practice. She was often told her strengths were her research and writing abilities. But Bennett, now a stay-athome mom and volunteer for various organizations — PTO, Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts, and the Rock Tri Club — says the most meaningful compliments Bennett she has received have been while volunteering at her church when she hears someone say she’s kind and a good listener. Bennett hopes to bring more transparency and information to her district by being “kind of a clearing house of information,” notifying constituents of upcoming agenda items through meetings, Facebook and other means.

Bennett said she is concerned about recent issues such as the council’s repealing of the open carrying of weapons ban. She thinks the ban was “narrowly focused and reasonable” and that the council should have considered public feedback when voting. Why are you seeking this office? I am committed to making Castle Rock a vibrant, family-friendly community in which to live, work and play. Our town is growing and council will face challenging decisions in the coming years. I believe each councilmember should strive to bring transparency to decision-making in town government. He or she must actively engage town residents on significant issues and implement avenues of communication for those who wish to be heard. If I were representing District 3, it would be my mission to focus on the town’s needs and support a town government unified in its vision for Castle Rock’s future. What makes you the best person for the job? I recognize that an effective councilmember must have a broad and detailed understanding of the town’s governmental, legal, policy, and goal structure. I believe my legal background will help me sort through complex regulatory schemes and synthesize abstract policy goals into concrete solutions. Since moving to Castle Rock, I have also established meaningful community connections through volunteer work that will enable me to open effective lines of communication within my district. I am confident that I have the experience, time and energy to take on this challenge and offer the citizens of my district the leadership they deserve. What do you believe is the most important issue facing your town and how will you approach it, if elected? I believe that the most important issue facing our town is preserving our distinctive character and small-town feel. This requires planning for smart integration of residential growth and infrastructure, pursuing sustainable resource solutions, retaining and growing local business, attracting new business that supports our vision for Castle Rock and implementing fiscal policies capable of funding worldclass amenities. I would approach this challenge by initiating consistent communication with constituents for transparency on town discussions and decisions. I would also solicit and support the expert advice of relevant town staff, boards, commissions and business groups on relevant topics. Finally, I would

work in any capacity possible to support a close partnership between the town government, the residents of Castle Rock, local developers and current/future business owners. My goal is to support and attract growth partners who share our residents’ vision for a self-sufficient Castle Rock that retains its small-town benefits.

Jennifer Green

Green, 38, who is seeking a second term, grew up in New Mexico where her father was stationed, and aspired to be a teacher. She spent a lot of time as a camp counselor and Sunday school teacher, and then attended Colorado State University. Despite graduating, she couldn’t complete her student-teaching requirements because she didn’t have a vehicle and couldn’t commute to the Denver and Greeley student-teachGreen ing opportunities. So, now she works instead in the communications industry, managing global offers and contracts. After moving to Castle Rock she got involved in a church and with the Republican Party. Green said she ran for council out of frustration at how things were going at the federal level — the amount of government control — and wanted to be more involved knowing that “politics starts at the local level.” She said she thinks council has accomplished its goals in the past three years, referring to progress on water needs; construction underway on another road access to I-25; and helping create economic growth. Green said she was directly responsible for bringing Firehouse Subs to town through a friend of a friend. Regarding her vote to repeal the ban on open carry of firearms, she said it had “everything to do with a Constitutional right… When you take away a Constitutional right, where do you stop chipping away at those rights?” she said. Why are you seeking this office? I’ve enjoyed the challenges Castle Rock Town Council brings and being involved in a representative role. I have appreciated being engaged with residents on numerous issues. As a council member, my background and knowledge of projects that have been in the works will be beneficial for the decisions that need to be made in my next term. What makes you the best person for the job? I will continue to secure long-term wa-

ter for future generations in Castle Rock and work toward the completion of the North Meadows Extension, easing traffic for our district. I am committed to bringing more jobs to Castle Rock so more individuals can work in the town in which they live and raise their family. I pledge to block all tax increases so you can keep more of your hard-earned money. I will continue to protect our Constitutional rights and traditional American values of faith, family and freedom. What do you believe is the most important issue facing your town and how will you approach it, if elected? The most important issue to me is the quality of life in Castle Rock. Quality of life is making sure we have jobs, adequate transportation, water now and in the future at reasonable rates for our residents and businesses. I will work to ensure we are competitive in economic development, communicate with our citizens and work with our local businesses.

Stephen Muller

Muller, 46, a retired New York police officer, has recently met with every Castle Rock town department head, each meeting ranging between one to three hours. Muller said it was about a 30-hour effort in total, but he considers running for council a job interview and wants to ace it. He said he wants to know everything he can about town operations, and now he can answer questions ranging from the difference between enterprise and general funds, to emergency response times, impact fees, infrastructure Muller and water projects. He said everyone was thunderstruck that he wanted to meet and readily made themselves available to him. Muller planned to be a doctor, graduated from Binghamton University in New York, and was wait-listed at Georgetown University. Economic times were tough, and he decided to take the police test, finishing 49th out of 25,000 test-takers. He said spending 23 years as a New York police officer was a “tremendous experience.” Muller fell in love with Colorado after he and his family skied here periodically and decided to move to Castle Rock. “I love living here…the morality of the people, the culture,” he said. He supports the proposed 200-acre Promenade development, but wants to District 3 continues on Page 5

Twenty-three years of Yorkservice as a police officer peri-in New York, four years in a o af-college prep Catholic high callyschool, a four-year degree lovefrom Binghamton Univere, thesity. I’m retired now, although I do coach basketball at the -acre s torec center, while wearing the president’s hat for my local HOA. I understand public safety, public service, and the value of investing wisely now for greater returns later. Twenty-three years in law enforcement has given me insight into working as a member of a team, to achieve greater goals. As your councilman, my job is to listen to and represent the people of District 3. What do you believe is the most important issue facing the town, and how will you approach it, if elected? Essentially it is infrastructure, an issue with many facets. Castle Rock receives the bulk of its revenue from sales tax. New home construction also provides funding, but it is a one-shot revenue. From these income sources, infrastructure to provide basic services must be created to match the growing population. Roads must be built, water secured, public safety ensured, open space preserved, and the local economy must prosper. Sales tax is our largest source of town income. Without local sales, there is no tax, no money to fund these needs. Infrastructure is the foundation upon which our entire community is built. Our success,

safety and happiness as a community depend upon a strong infrastructure. It is a complex issue, but we must create a rising tide that lifts all boats — private and public.

Gordon Rollins

Rollins, 71, who moved to Castle Rock to be near grandchildren, was raised in Boston, and has been running for a long time. His high school track coach thought Rollins, a f re s h m a n , s h o u l d just be a Rollins m a n a g e r, but Rollins convinced him to at least let him try to run — and he became the school’s only nine-letter athlete. A homeroom teacher didn’t think he was college material, but he went to college, anyway, and got a bachelor’s degree intending to be a history teacher — but Vietnam got in the way. One of his positions during his subsequent military career was commander of the army’s publications center in Baltimore, overseeing 460 civilian employees and a few military personnel. He also has worked as a management consultant. He said in addition to now shepherding grandchildren to various activities and helping to volunteer at the senior center, it would be “fun” to use his practical and theoretical knowledge as a town council member. Regarding the recent town council decision on repealing the open carry ban, he said there has to be a compelling need for a government to limit a Constitutional right and there wasn’t a demonstrated or compelling need to keep the ban. But he thinks the ideal solution would be allowing open carry of handguns in a proper holster — not allowing long guns. On development, he has qualms about putting a proposed artificial ski hill operation in Philip S. Miller Park “in the middle of the Rocky Mountains,” and is concerned about a proposed zip line being an eyesore. “I’m not saying it shouldn’t go in, (but proceed) with caution…consider all the ins and outs.” Why are you seeking this office? My career experiences demonstrate solid credentials and preparation for a town council seat. I offer over 45 years of varied experience in the public and private sectors and academia related to public administration, government operations, general management and decision-making/dispute resolution. My practical and teaching experience with the systems approach to management and negotiation ingrained in me the importance of considering the interactivity of the interests, needs and concerns of all involved parties in the decision-making process. Also, I have many years of community involvement as a volunteer. I simply want to make a meaningful contribution to the Castle Rock community. What makes you the best person for the job? My overall expertise,

practical experience, and analytical approach to problem-solving and decision-making will guide me in enhancing the quality of the council’s deliberative discussions thereby achieving more informed decisions regarding public policy. What do you believe is the most important issue facing your town and how will you approach it, if elected? I view growth vs. development as the critical issue facing Castle Rock in the near future. As Castle Rock moves to the 100,000 resident community envisioned in the 2020 Comprehensive Master Plan approved by the town council in November 2002 we must insist on a strict level of scrutiny to protect our

community from growth vs. development. To use an analogy of Dr. Russell Ackoff (one of my favorite management theorists) “trash heaps grow, they don’t develop.” Future building (homes & businesses) must be compatible with Castle Rock’s values, interests, environment, and supporting infrastructure and public services. Some residents have expressed to me that they want “professional” not industrial/ commercial development. Personally I do not want to see Castle Rock become a “tourist trap” with an amusement park atmosphere. This will be a challenge confronted jointly by the business community, advisory bodies, and the town’s government (elected and appointed) officials.

District 5 incumbent faces two challengers Renee Valentine contested by Floyd Bacon, Charles Fletcher By Virginia Grantier

vgrantier@coloradocommunitymedia. com Castle Rock Town Council has four seats available. Last week, Colorado Community Media featured the candidates for the District 6 and 7 seats. This week, candidates for the District 3 and 5 seats are featured. In District 5, incumbent Renee Valentine is running for a second term. She has two challengers: Floyd Bacon and Charles Fletcher. The following are introductory stories and Q&As with the three candidates. Each candidate was asked the same questions by Colorado Community Media. The election, which is April 1, will occur by mail. Ballots were sent to active registered voters this past week. There are no town-wide issues on this ballot so voters who do not live in one of the four districts will not receive a ballot. Voters within this year’s voting districts who do not receive a ballot, or who need their ballot mailed to an address other than the one at which they are registered, should call the Town Clerk’s Office, 303-660-1367 or email smisare@CRgov.com.

Floyd Bacon

Bacon, 49, who grew up in an Oklahoma City suburb, was a senior class president, talented in math and science, and aspired to go to into engineering. He said when he was attending Oklahoma State University for electrical engineering, a friend was in the school’s wellrecognized fires science program. After college and Bacon’s U.S. Navy service, the two decided to start a business selling fire gear and servicing fire trucks. Bacon picked Castle Rock as the perfect place because of its “small-town feel … and tremendous sense of community” as the place to start Max Fire Apparatus Inc. He enjoys the business Bacon because he loves to solve problems for municipalities and fire districts. His wife, Micheala, also has opened Maddie’s Biergarten downtown. He said what fostered the desire to get in that business was visting breweries in Germany and seeing the family and community atmosphere there where kids are welcome, games are played, families interact and people don’t stay late — all “fostering a culture of responsibility as it relates to choosing to have a beer,” he said. Bacon has served on the town’s liquor licensing authority board, but in about year 2000 pulled back from volunteering to be more involved in his children’s activities. They’re older now and he has time, now, he said. He’s running because he doesn’t think the current council represents the views of the “lion’s share of the people I interact with.” He said he doesn’t think open carry of firearms in town is a good idea, referring to the council’s recent repeal of the open carry ban. He said there’s no requirement for a protective holster for someone opencarrying and is worried about an unintended mishap. “Some of our council persons seem more motivated by their own agendas … instead of listening,” he said. Bacon said if a councilmember decides something contrary to what people in the district want, the councilmember needs to explain “why it needs to be done otherwise.” Bacon said he doesn’t get that from his councilmember. Bacon said Castle Rock needs solutions for economic diversity and long-time sustainability — water supply, and he wants to more roundly represent the concerns of people in his district. He said he thinks the plans for Philip S. Miller Park, a proposed ski hill and zip line, are fantastic for kids here. As far as Promenade, a proposed 200acre development next to the Outlets of Castle Rock, he has mixed feelings. He’d like to focus on recruiting and establishing additional primary job creators — manufac-

turing andHelp tech Wanted jobs — to bring high-paying day jobs to town, which will also result in sales tax revenue on the backside as those employees spend that money. Why are you seeking this office? Recently, as issues faced our town regarding public art, gun control and growth, to name a few, I found myself and my neighbors in District 5 questioning why decisions were made that didn’t reflect the will of the people of District 5. As such, I decided to act. I am running for town council to ensure that District 5 residents have a voice that will represent their interests. I am committed to a safe town that holds true to its family values and smart growth that ensures a vibrant downtown and amenities for all throughout our growing community. What makes you the best person for the job? My success in business, and 16 years of enjoying the quality of life in our town, makes me the best potential councilmember for District 5. My wife and I moved to Castle Rock in 1997 to raise our family and start a business. Castle Rock has been very positive for us and our business has grown — adding jobs in town. As District 5 representative, I will bring my conservative, analytical approach to council. Additionally, I will ensure that District 5 residents can count on me to represent their viewpoints and not my personal agenda or the special interest agendas of others. What do you believe is the most important issue facing your town and how will you approach it, if elected? While economic diversity of our taxbase, protecting our downtown district and quality of life, and sustainable, affordable water are my top three priorities. The most important issue facing our town at the moment is simply about representation of the will of the people. “Public service is a public trust.” As a member of town council, I will make it my practice to understand the thoughts and ideas of my constituents before making crucial decisions and focus my efforts to rebalance council to represent the citizens in our community.

Charles Fletcher

Fletcher, 40, likes to be criticized. “Don’t get me wrong, I don’t like being yelled at … a compliment is nice.” But he said compliments tend to encourage same behavior, while a criticism can lead to new growth and opportunities. Raised in Oregon, Fletcher has been viewed as someone who thought out of the box, “I tend to not constrain myself to convention choice,” he said. Fletcher, a technical project manager for Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield, serves as chair of the town’s utilities commission, and has Wanted encouraged the town Help to create a transparency portal on its website that now allows residents to read all of the requests for proposal (rfps) at the end of bidding processes. “I’m big on Fletcher transparency,” he said. Growing up, he was entrepreneurial, and his family joked he would be the youngest mayor of Eugene. At about age 18 he was seriously considering running for that job. Instead, he eventually got a political science degree from the University of Oregon, where he also spent time starting small Internet start-ups. At age 25, he moved to Colorado Springs for a job opportunity with the nonprofit Junior Achievement, a worldwide nonprofit that focuses on teaching kids, K-12, about free enterprise. Later he moved to Castle Rock, preferring the small-townPlease atmosphere. Fletcher Recycle this Publication said he’s not “particularly when happy with the Finished job town council is doing. He said about one-and-a-half years ago, council decided to meet every two weeks, instead of weekly, as they had been doing. He thinks the council, given a 400-page packet the week before the meeting, doesn’t have time to study enough and are now depending more on executive staff summaries instead of having in-depth knowledge themselves. “Council should beFor engaged, knowlLocal News, edgeable and challenging staff,” he Day said, Anytime of the District 5 continues Visit on Page 7

District 5 Continued from Page 6

adding that what makes it worse is that a group of four councilmembers tend to vote in unison… and their views don’t align with Castle Rock interests. He said about the open carry of firearms issue that “the group of four” decided based on ideology, ignoring the feedback of citizens. Why are you seeking this office? I have lived in Castle Rock for 12 years, and had both my children since I have located here. The town is in need of more active leadership to make sure that the community grows in ways that are important to its citizens, both residential and business-oriented. I have chaired the Utilities Commission, participated in several other committees and have always strived to be a representative for my fellow citizens. What makes you the best person for the job? I am the best choice having a demonstrated civic leadership and participation. I have studiously participated in every element of the Utilities Commission, volunteered for other committees, and served as an advisor to my HOA. My professional life is documented with examples of leadership, accountability and transparency. I am a better choice than Re-

nee Valentine because I participate, challenge and am prepared for my meetings. I am a better choice than Mr. Bacon due to my most recent service and leadership within the community. I serve with a sense of humility, and I want to represent the community, not force the values of external donors onto our community. What do you believe is the most important issue facing your town and how will you approach it, if elected? The most important issue facing the town is leadership and vision. I will address this issue by engaging developers, investors and residents in solutions that maintain and increase our long-term community value. The current issue is highlighted by the current council’s complacency to follow the mayor’s lead on issues with a stranglehold majority. My current representative Ms. Valentine, rarely asks questions, and in the last three years has always voted with the mayor. Additionally, numerous planning exceptions and variances have been granted, which are directly diluting our community value, economically and culturally.

Renee Valentine

Incumbent Renee Valentine moved with her husband, Paul, from West Chester, Ohio, to Colorado in 2003. One year later, they made the Escavera neighborhood their home. Renee worked for Marriott Hotels and

Resorts in sales and marketing for 15 years and transferred from Ohio to Colorado with the company. In 2005, she began her career in real estate and is a broker/owner with Keller Williams Real Estate. She recently opened her own office in downtown Castle Rock. Renee graduated from Bowling Green State University with a bachelor’s degree in hotel management. Renee and Paul have been married for 20 years and have four children: Jaclyn, 19, and sons Zack, 16, Luke, 15, and Leo, 3. Jaclyn is a graduate of Castle View High School and is enrolled at Miami University of Ohio. Zack and Luke attend Douglas County High School. (Editor’s note: This information was obtained Valentine from Valentine’s bio on the town’s website. Colorado Community Media attempted several times over a period of weeks to schedule an interview, but she couldn’t be reached prior to press deadline. She did, however, submit email answers to the candidate questionnaire.) Why are you seeking this office? I am running for office for my second term. I would like to continue representing District 5 to see our hard work on Castle Rock projects come to fruition. I want to

continue to make Castle Rock business friendly and manage the growth properly. What makes you the best person for the job? My experience, integrity, dedication and hard work. I take pride in assisting my constituents when they reach out for help with issues they may be having and responding in a timely and efficient manner. This position is not just a few hours at a council meeting, it is taking the time outside to meet and discuss issues facing the town. I have personally assisted in bringing a company to the EDC and they are now in the process of relocating their corporate headquarters here, which will bring terrific employment opportunities to Castle Rock residents. I also have my own business in town, which shows my commitment to this area. What do you believe is the most important issue facing your town and how will you approach it, if elected? We have several important issues, but in my opinion, long-term water seems to remain at the top of the list. This council has worked hard to strive toward the long-term goal of 75 percent renewable water. We also need to continue to make sure as growth in Castle Rock continues, water is addressed. We need to continue to follow the path created and negotiate the best solutions to share infrastructure and cost.

Executive session bill worth another listen Click on, click off. A bill that would have likely decreased numbers of times recording machines are turned on and off at school board executive sessions was tabled last week. The bill had some traction and seemingly enough votes to clear the Senate Judicial Committee before it was pulled by state Sen. Mary Hodge, D-Adams County, who said there were enough votes to clear the House but not the Senate. The bill would have required attorneyclient discussions during school board executive sessions to be recorded, no longer excluded from being recorded with other portions of executive session topics and interactions. Had the measure passed, the recorded information would have been only made available to the public after a ruling by a judge finding that matters that should have been public were discussed behind closed

our view

doors — which is the standard for all other recorded executive session topics. We like the idea of the entirety of executive sessions being recorded. In our estimation, having the executive sessions taped and safely stored in case they require review by a judge has worked very well. It provides another measure of accountability — another mechanism in the name of good government. On the face of the argument, taping an attorney-client discussion can seem just plain wrong, and we understand opposition arising from the Colorado Bar Association, but school boards are doing the busi-

ness of the public — the taxpayers — and thereby should be held to higher accountability with safely secured recordings of its exchanges with attorneys. The bill also required that executive session minutes reflect the number of minutes spent on each topic. This adds details that could be provided with little extra effort — another good government measure — but is secondary to whether the additional recording takes place. From the chair of reporters through the years, we notice that elected officials — especially the newly elected — don’t always sync into the role of doing public business in public. It feels much more natural for decision-makers, many from the private sector, to privately discuss and craft decisions and then either adopt an action or compile a report for review at another level.

This is a central reason it is so important to check executive sessions and make sure participants don’t stray from the appropriate closed-door topics, which are generally pending litigation, personnel matters and negotiations. Further, at the Statehouse, debate included talk that this measure should be extended to city councils, where we see various amounts of executive sessions and various concerns across the state, but we are not so sure that should be the next move. Instead we believe this issue with school boards is worth another go around independently at some point, and whether this aspect of executive sessions is changed or not, every debate related to executive sessions and open meetings serves as a strong reminder of the attention to the law required in doing the public’s business in the open.

Passion fuels purpose, drives performance

‘So you want to be a rock ‘n’ roll star’ This is about as close to music as I can get. I am going to string together some songs and lyrics. “Regrets? I’ve had a few” (“My Way”), and almost all of them were in the aftermath of “stumbling down drunken roads” (Dave Matthews’ Folsom Field version of “Two Step”). One of my biggest regrets is that I can’t read or play music. I can paint and draw, thankfully, but I wish that I had picked up a guitar at the same time I was picking up crayons. “Late yesterday night” (“From a Window” written by Lennon and McCartney and given to Billy J. Kramer and the Dakotas), I watched a documentary about the history of the electric guitar. I almost wept. It was on the Smithsonian Channel. The same names kept coming up: Gibson, Fender, Les Paul and then later Jimi Hendrix. I think if I had three wishes, one of them would be this: to play “Walk Don’t Run” on a Fender Stratocaster. “Does that make me crazy? Does that make me crazy?” (“Crazy” by Gnarls Barkley). Sinéad O’Connor said, “I don’t want what I haven’t got.” Easy for her to say. I want what I don’t have. I want to play a “perfectly good guitar” (John Hiatt). I want to play like Mark Knopfler for Jennifer. I want to play lead guitar on “Lady Writer” for Jennifer. About all I can do is whistle. I don’t know anything about keys. I just read about them on the Internet, and I am still in the dark. “The key of a piece of music usually refers to the tonic note and chord, which gives a subjective sense of arrival and rest.” I used to drink vodka with a tonic note. Not the same thing. Jimmy Page (Led Zeppelin) could probably pick up a $10 ukulele and make it sound great. I am in awe when I watch a singer sing and play guitar at the same time. I can’t do either one separately. I watched Harry Connick, Jr. go around his orchestra at Red Rocks, and play every instrument. I wanted to strangle him.

The good news is that he can’t paint worth a damn and I can. When a Colorado Rockies hitter comes to the plate, their plate music is played. I know what mine would be. On even days it would be the intro of “All Along the Watchtower” by Jimi Hendrix. On odd days, it would be the intro of “Summertime Blues,” by Eddie Cochran. “I’d like to help you son, but you’re too young to vote.” I have a double-CD of guitar music that I have listened to over and over. Christopher Parkening. For years I had heard Parkening one selection at a time. When I heard the double-CD for the first time “my heart stood still” (Rogers & Hart). I repeat them both, and it fills an entire Sunday afternoon. Acoustic guitar is very pleasing, but it doesn’t have the same adrenaline as electric guitar. The intro of “Substitute” by The Who just wouldn’t be the same. I have a pinched ulnar nerve in my right hand, so even if I studied guitar, I would be limited. I know it’s a lost cause. Don’t tell me an old dog can learn new tricks. An old dog will never be able to play the guitar solo in “Time” like David Gilmour (Pink Floyd). “Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way.” That’s what this column is called: “Quiet Desperation.” Pink Floyd took it from a Henry David Thoreau poem. If I tried to play, well, my guitar would “gently weep” (Beatles). And weep. Craig Marshall Smith is an artist, educator and Highlands Ranch resident.

Have you ever been truly inspired, I mean really fired up about something? Maybe it’s a new job, a physical or financial goal, a project, a relationship, a fresh start. When we are fueled by passion — and a desire to engage in the pursuit of our goals — our performance is enhanced regardless of what we are doing. Passion fuels purpose, purpose drives performance, performance leads to results, and results inspire hope. The passionate student will study hard and complete homework assignments in the pursuit of good grades and higher education opportunities. The passionate salesperson will make prospecting calls and learn everything they can about their products, industry, and potential customers recognizing that their efforts will directly impact their income. The passionate spouse will remember all the little things that ignite romance as they continue to enjoy a healthy and love filled relationship. There are so many examples that I can share but what I am talking about here is that when we have passion we will do the behaviors necessary to achieve the levels of success that we so desire. As I talk with people who feel like their personal performance or results have plateaued or even slipped or dipped, a simple diagnostic discussion about their behaviors quickly reveals that there is a loss of interest, a lack of desire, and a bit of mystification about their purpose. We have to remember that we cannot manage our results; we can only manage

THE NEWS-PRESS

our behaviors. And our behaviors are largely driven by our passion. You can imagine what happens to the student that stops studying or doing homework. And what would happen to the salesperson that stopped making calls to prospects or customers? And all of us can probably remember a time when we missed an opportunity to show our spouse a little more love and affection. I have a few friends that are really into fitness and even though they may not feel like getting to the gym or following a healthy diet, they do it because they are passionate about their physical fitness goals. I know many salespeople who really dislike, maybe even hate making prospecting or cold calls, but they do it because they are passionate about their income potential. And I know some of the best business owners and managers who make sacrifices and nurture their teams because they are passionate about their people and seeing them succeed personally and professionally. It starts with passion and provides us Norton continues on Page 9

districts each year since 2002, but increased the funding to $100,000 in 2014. The amount of funding is based on the number of calls the agencies receive. The five fire districts who received a slice of that funding were Mountain Communities Fire Protection District with $33,000, West Douglas Fire Protection District with $26,000, North Fork Fire Protection District with $20,000, Jackson 105 Fire Protection District with $14,000 and Larkspur Fire Protection District with $7,000.

on every other topic under the sun,” and that it seemed ironic they wouldn’t seek the public’s input on this and he would feel more comfortable if the 50,000-plus residents had a voice in it. But councilmembers opposed to public input gave similar reasons at both meetings. Councilmember Joe Procopio didn’t see the need for getting public input for a weak-mayor position that just runs the meeting, signs documents, is an honorary head and Donahue represents the town at special occasions and has no real power. He was concerned that with public input the process would become a popularity contest and that there was the “potential for all kinds of problems.” Procopio said they would be getting input from only those in the room at the time, not a “universal” sampling. Councilmember Clark Hammelman, whose concern was that the vote be reported by the town accurately, was against taking public input. He said that just as he didn’t think it was warranted for the public to have input in the assigning of councilmembers to various liaison positions with the town’s commissions and boards, he didn’t think input was needed for this posi-

with hope. And when we have that passion and we are inspired by hope we will do the behaviors necessary to take us where we want to be in all aspects of our life.

Parents and security experts shared stories both heartbreaking and inspiring during a two-hour forum on school security held March 13 at Parker’s Cimarron Middle School. Parker parents David and Carly Posey, whose children attended Sandy Hook Elementary during the tragic December 2012 mass shooting, highlighted the evening. David Posey now is president of Cimarron’s PTO; the family had made plans to move to Parker before the shooting due to David’s job transfer. In the Douglas County School District, they say they’ve found a deep sense of security. After watching his teacher and a classmate die, the Posey’s son Reichen fled to safety from a Sandy Hook classroom while the gunman reloaded. He and his siblings now are Douglas County students. “The Douglas County School District has made our children’s safety a top priority, and they haven’t stopped working on this issue,” said Carly Posey, adding that during her years as an involved parent at Sandy Hook, “Never was school security talked about.” The county is also providing a free wildfire workshop, focusing on mitigation and preparation, from 9 a.m. to noon on April 5 at the Douglas County Events Center, located at 500 Fairgrounds Drive in Castle Rock. The workshop will provide information regarding wildfire hazard reduction techniques, community wildfire mitigation and preparedness efforts, and evacuation planning and insurance needs. Interested residents should RSVP for the workshop by March 28 to jalexand@douglas.co.us. For more information, visit www.douglas. co.us/building/wildfire/ “The Front Range is now experiencing more intense, larger fires,” Johnson said. “When it’s our turn in the barrel, so to speak, we want to be ready for that.” tion. Councilmember Jennifer Green, who wanted the process to remain the same, said the position didn’t have any special powers or veto power and there were plenty of examples of governmental bodies who vote for heads without input. Town attorney Bob Slentz talked at the Feb. 4 meeting about the possibility of asking for public input after the candidate pool was announced and prior to the balloting. Slentz later said the town charter directs that the public have reasonable opportunity to comment, but then adds “under such procedures as prescribed by council.” He indicated the council would have to consider whether the selection of mayor was a process that the charter was referring to when it directed that the public have reasonable opportunity to comment. Donahue asked Slentz if it wasn’t correct that the council has never had public comment on the mayoral election since the beginning of Castle Rock. Slentz said that was correct, but sometimes it’s healthy for council to take a step back and determine, “Is this the way (it) should be doing business?” “Not to be argumentative… Your policy can be characterized as this: `The selection of mayor is none of the public’s business.’ I wonder if that really resonates correctly?” Donahue told Slentz that’s a good question to ask, but the concern of some on council is it “kind of turns into a cheerleading deal.” Donahue said councilmembers could bring supporters to the meeting to posit positive or negative about mayoral candidates.

What are you passionate about? What gets you really fired up? I would love to hear all about it at gotonorton@gmail.com. And when our behaviors are driven by our passion, our results and hope will really make this a better than good week. Michael Norton is a resident of Highlands Ranch, the former president of the Zig Ziglar Corporation and the CEO/ founder of www.candogo.com.

When frantic parents gathered at a Newtown, Conn. firehouse after the shooting, Posey said some children mistakenly were sent home with their classmates’ parents, adding to the panic and chaos for parents who later couldn’t find their children. She compared that to the orderly reunification of parents and students that occurred at Cimarron March 7 after a low-credibility bomb threat at nearby Legend High School forced the cancellation of classes. “I’m sure Newtown had some sort of plan on paper, but they never thought they would need it,” she said. The Poseys have joined some Columbine High School parents to create the Sandy Hook Columbine Cooperative, designed to help communities prepare, respond, and recover from a traumatic event. “While part of us will always be with those we love back in Connecticut, Dave and I know from experience it really does take a village to raise a child,” Carly Posey said. “We are so thankful and proud our village is here with you in Colorado. “We are ready to do our part to make certain that not just our kids, but all kids are safe at school.” John Michael-Keyes, whose daughter Emily was fatally shot at Platte Canyon High School in September 2006, also addressed the audience. Keyes founded the i love u guys Foundation, and is credited as the driving force behind the standard response protocols now used by school districts na-

tionwide. Former hostage negotiator and SAFE2TELL creator Susan Payne, and Douglas County school resource officer Tyler Herman also talked about school security. Though all praised DCSD’s efforts, they agreed much work remains to be done both locally and nationally. Payne said students need continual encouragement to talk about things they hear and see. In almost all cases, the person that conducted a violent act exhibited some alarming behavior before they acted, she said. Those unusual behaviors apply not just to violent acts against others, but potential suicide victims, Payne said. Payne also said sophisticated technology allows officials to track tips and prevent tragedies. Officials tracked a Georgia teen to his home hours after he’d told fellow online gamers about a potential planned school attack. Though the teen said he’d never intended to put his words into action, officers removed seven weapons from his home. Such tips and hotlines likely have prevented two planned school attacks and in Colorado alone, about 80 potential suicides. “We are seeing a culture among adults and children that says, `Look the other way, mind your own business’,” Payne said. “But if we’re going to get information from people, we need to make sure they’re engaged in a two-way dialogue. We have to be engaged and proactive.”

County waives fees for building project Staff report Aiming to maintain its business-friendly reputation, the Douglas County Board of County Commissioners waived planning fees for a new research lab in the northeastern part of the county at a March 11 land use meeting. The county waived a total of $24,959 in fees for Charter Communications for a proposed new research and development lab in the Compark Business Park. The pro-

posed project will create 55 new full-time positions with average annual salaries from $80,000 to $130,000. The project will also create 45 contract labor positions with an annual wage of $110,000, according to planning documents. Along with the new jobs, 60 employees from other Colorado sites would be transferred to Douglas County. The estimated capital investment for the new project is $25.5 million, which includes construction of an 80,000-square-foot facility value at $16 million and equipment and furnishings totaling $7.5 million.

The man suspected of leading authorities on a perilous pursuit that stretched more than 50 miles through four counties went from a hospital room to a jail cell March 13. Ryan Cole Stone, 28, was transferred to the Douglas County Detention Facility in Castle Rock after being treated for injuries sustained in a chain of accidents he allegedly caused, including the violent T-bone collision that ended the chase March 12. Stone, who was wanted on warrants for auto theft, burglary and failure to appear in court on drug charges, now faces a longer list of criminal charges and will be prosecuted in Doug- Stone las County, said George Brauchler, district attorney for the 18th Judicial District, at a news conference the day after the pursuit. Stone was expected to appear at a March 19 hearing for a formal filing of charges. The Centennial resident made his first court appearance March 14 and is being held on bonds of $2.5 million and $1 million. It is unknown if he has retained an attorney. There are several reasons for prosecuting Stone in Douglas County that best serve the interests of Colorado, said Boulder County DA Stan Garnett. District attorneys from the affected jurisdictions are “amassing information” and partnering with each other to “make sure the charges reflect the true victims out there,” he said. A Colorado State Patrol trooper suffered “lower extremity leg injuries” after being struck by a gold minivan Stone was driv-

ing near E-470 and Chambers Road. The trooper, Bellamann Hee, was released from the hospital shortly after and will undergo extensive rehabilitation. No other injuries were reported. The state patrol’s interim chief, Scott Hernandez, said Colorado should be proud of its law enforcement agencies and media outlets. Cooperation and coordination between police helped limit the number of exit points for Stone as he drove south on Interstate 25 at speeds reaching more than 100 mph. Media coverage, particularly by a KOA new helicopter that tracked the pursuit from the air, was “really critical,” Hernandez said, because officers had to discontinue the chase several times out of fear for public safety and the well-being of a 4-yearold boy in the first stolen vehicle, taken in Longmont. The suspect “showed no regard for human life” and police breathed a sigh of relief because Stone did not enter areas where there was “more potential for damage,” like a school zone, he said. Douglas County Sheriff David Weaver said Stone ran at least six vehicles off the road. Brauchler lauded the maneuver by a Douglas County Sheriff’s deputy that prevented Stone from escaping by vehicle after the crash at Lincoln Avenue and Peoria Street, across from The Wildlife Experience. “I’m not sure if this ends if not for that last-second maneuver,” he said. Stone ran for a short distance, but was taken into custody after trying to climb a fence into the Windsor at Meridian Apartments. When Brauchler was asked why Stone was free, given his lengthy rap sheet and outstanding warrants, the DA said authorities attempted to take him into custody March 4 without success. “If things had gone the way they’re supposed to in court, would this have happened? That’s a fair question,” he said. Chief deputy district attorney Jason Siers and deputy district attorney Laura Wilson will represent the state.

Referendum continues; signatures verified Residents get enough signatures to continue effort to stop repeal of open carry ban By Virginia Grantier

vgrantier@coloradocommunitymedia. com Castle Rock residents who initiated a referendum effort — right after town council’s Jan. 28 decision to repeal the ban on the open carry of firearms in public buildings and parks — have enough signatures to keep the referendum process alive, according to a news release. Sally Misare, Castle Rock’s town clerk, verified Thursday that there are enough valid signatures to move forward with the referendum process. And so, for now, the council’s decision remains on hold. The petitioners, Jacob Vargish and Siegfried Guentensberger, needed to get 1,887

‘On such an important issue, we remain hopeful that the citizens of our town will finally have their say in what should have been their decision all along.’ Jacob Vargish, petitioner signatures — because the town charter requires signatures of 5 percent of voters on the town’s registration rolls at the time the form of the petition was certified. They, with the help of about 30 signature gatherers, got 2,657 signatures, and submitted them on Feb. 26, of which 2,249 signatures were validated. Their referendum petition seeks to reverse the council’s January decision to allow the open carry of firearms in all townowned or controlled properties, which was to go into effect 30 days after that vote.

Now that the signatures have been verified, the next step is to wait for the 40-day protest period to expire at 5 p.m. April 7. If an individual or group plans to protest the petition, they must file a protest with the town clerk. If a protest is filed, but found to be invalid, or if there are no protests during the protest period, the town council must rescind the ordinance or set an election date to put the matter to public vote. Until this process is complete, the town’s ban remains in place, so open carry is still

prohibited in most town-owned buildings and town-owned parks. But per state law, concealed carry of a handgun with a permit is allowed almost anywhere in town. The three councilmembers who voted against the repeal in January — Councilmembers Clark Hammelman, Mark Heath and Chip Wilson — wanted the issue given to the town’s voters to decide. Mayor Paul Donahue, managing partner of the Centennial Gun Club, voted to repeal. He is the one who in June 2013 brought up the idea of a repeal, and asked the council to consider it, maintaining it’s a Constitutional, Second Amendment issue. Also voting to repeal were councilmembers Jennifer Green, Joe Procopio and Renee Valentine. “We are very pleased to have gotten this far in the process,” Vargish said. “On such an important issue, we remain hopeful that the citizens of our town will finally have their say in what should have been their decision all along.”

Nursing moms ask DISH Network for privacy ACLU steps in on their behalf By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@coloradocommunitymedia.com Some new moms who work at DISH Network say the company is violating not just the law, but their sense of dignity. “Several of your employees have reported that the arrangements for nursing mothers at DISH have forced them to pump in a bathroom, expose their breasts to pump in front of co-workers and even supervisors, and/or pump in areas where employees passing by were able to see into the lactation room,” wrote Rebecca Wallace, a staff attorney with the ACLU, in a letter to DISH President Joseph Clayton.

“As a large national corporation with approximately 35,000 employees, DISH has the resources to comply with the law and should have the will to do so.” The American Civil Liberties Union has filed a formal complaint with the company on behalf of several female employees, who wish to remain unidentified out of fear of retaliation, said ACLU spokesperson John Krieger. State and federal laws require employers to provide sufficient private spaces, other than a bathroom, in which nursing employees can express breast milk. The ACLU says DISH is not accomplishing this at either its corporate headquarters in Douglas County’s Meridian business center, where there is a room with no privacy screens, or at the DISH Network call center in Littleton,

where the lactation room is in a bathroom. “In addition to health and sanitation concerns that arise for mothers expected to pump breast milk in a bathroom, requiring women to express their milk in spaces that are otherwise considered unsuitable for employees’ work activities poses harm to women’s basic human dignity,” writes Wallace. DISH officials, in response to a request for comment, did not address whether the current accommodations are adequate. “We are still reviewing the ACLU complaint,” reads a statement. “DISH is committed to providing a safe, productive, healthy and family friendly workplace, and we always welcome suggestions for improvement.” Wallace said a good step would be to

get on board with campaigns encouraging breastfeeding for the first year, when possible, as a healthy choice. “Yet new mothers often return to work and face significant obstacles to breastfeeding when employers like DISH Network refuse to provide a private, hygienic, readily accessible place to express breast milk,” she said. The ACLU is calling on DISH Network to provide adequate space and privacy in all of its lactation rooms for multiple nursing employees to pump privately at the same time, training for all supervisors and facilities managers about accommodations the law requires, and post notice in all lactation rooms detailing the rights of nursing mothers. The group asked DISH to respond to its concerns by March 19.

d Attempt to ban cell phones while driving fails

dingsProposed

regulations shot down in House committee of a

mostBy Vic Vela

vvela@coloradocommunitymedia.com

oted ncil- An effort to ban most all uses of cell Heathphones while driving failed in a House givencommittee on March 12.

The bill would have prohibited motorrtnerists from talking on cell phones unless they peal.were using hands-free devices. The legislaht uption also would have created tougher penaluncilties for drivers who talk on their cell phones stitu-in school zones and construction areas, and

would have banned web surfing and using mem-applications while behind the wheel. d Re- Text messaging while driving is already

illegal in Colorado. n this But Democrats and Republicans alike suchexpressed a myriad of concerns about the thatbill. Some said that the measure would lead haveto potential enforceability issues for law r de-enforcement, while others didn’t think the

proposed penalties went far enough. Rep. Jovan Melton, D-Aurora, the bill sponsor, told the House Transportation and Energy Committee that, “at any given time, 9 percent of drivers are on their cell phones, so the likelihood of crashes increases.” “We want to encourage people to put agingthe phone down and put their hands on the pos-wheel and focus on the road,” Melton said. Melton’s effort was highlighted by emoworktional testimony on behalf of his bill from feed-a Fort Collins woman whose daughter was k re-killed by a driver who was distracted by her adilyphone. ” she Shelley Forney wept as she told the story of her 9-year-old daughter Erica, who was rk toriding on her bike, on her way home from n allschool in 2008. A driver — who was talking rsingon her cell phone — became distracted and sameveered into the bike lane, striking the girl acilis the ation mothto its

y

and causing her body to flip eight feet in the air before landing on the windshield. The girl died two days later. “She had a life that was taken from her for something that should have never happened,” Forney said. Forney is a constituent of Rep. Randy Fischer, D-Fort Collins. Her testimony caused Fischer to choke back tears and to thank her for her courage in fighting for the legislation before he voted in favor of the bill. But other lawmakers on the committee expressed concern with the bill before testimony ever began. Rep. Polly Lawrence, R-Douglas County, said it doesn’t take a cell phone to distract a driver. She said that a crying child or changing radio stations also leads to accidents. “There’s a lot of things that affect distracted drivers,” she said. “I don’t understand why we’re focusing just on a cell phone.” Rep. Dominick Moreno, D-Commerce City, who also voted no, wasn’t fond of the law’s penalty structure, telling Melton that they “don’t go far enough.” The bill would have created a “primary offense” for drivers who use their cell phones through school zones and construction areas, meaning police could impose a citation for the mere act of being on the phone. But, in all other cases, violating the cell phone law would have only resulted in a “secondary offense,” meaning drivers could only be cited for talking on their cell phones so long as they were initially stopped for another violation. The bill’s maximum fines for violations would have been $50 for the first offense and $100 for the second. Rep. Tracy Kraft-Tharp, D-Arvada, who voted no, said she was concerned that the law would hurt ride-sharing companies like Uber and Lyft, where drivers rely on cell

School board transparency bill dies Sponsor cites lack of support in Senate as reason for killing effort in this year’s session By Vic Vela

vvela@coloradocommunitymedia.com Legislation aimed at creating greater transparency for what happens behind closed doors at school board meetings will not happen this year. A bill sponsor on March 12 asked a Senate committee to indefinitely postpone the legislation, meaning that the bill is dead this year. The legislation would have required that all conversations that take place during school board executive sessions be recorded, including those involving attorney-client discussions. Sen. Mary Hodge, D-Brighton, said she had enough votes for House Bill 1110 to clear the Senate Judiciary Committee. However, getting it past the full Senate was going to be an entirely different story. Hodge — who sponsored the bill with Rep. Cherylin Peniston, D-Westminster — said the bill was one vote short of the sup-

port needed to pass the Senate. That vote belonged to Sen. Pat Steadman, D-Denver. Steadman said he had concerns that the bill only targeted school boards and no other governing bodies, such as city councils. But Steadman’s “overriding” concerns had to do with attorneyclient matters. Current law already requires that school board executive sessions be recorded. The bill would have expanded that requirement to include attorney-client conversations. All Republicans and a few Democrats voted against the bill in the House, in part over concerns that lawyers wouldn’t be able to have effective conversations with their clients, if there was a possibility that those discussions could be made public. “I think there’s some concerns for me about the precedent it would have set,” said Steadman, who is an attorney. Under the bill, recordings of executive sessions would have been stored and would be made available through a court petition process. A judge would have listened to a recording upon a filer’s request and would have been tasked with determining Bill continues on Page 14

Ray Scott, D-Grand Junction, said he wondered how police could possibly enforce the law with their limited officer resources, with so many drivers using cell phones these days. But Rep. Max Tyler, D-Lakewood, the committee chairman, voted in favor of the measure. He took issue with a comment that was made by Scott, who talked about

the difficulty of legislating “personal responsibility.” “I don’t think we’re talking about personal responsibility,” Tyler said. “I think we’re talking about personal actions, which we legislate all the time.” The bill failed in the committee following a 7-6 vote. However, the committee did not vote to officially kill the legislation this session, meaning Melton could still make changes and bring the effort back this year, if he chooses to do so.

whether that information should be made public. The bill was a response to recent controversies over transparency issues involving school boards in Douglas and Jefferson

counties. The Douglas County School Board has been the subject of criticism over its use of executive sessions. The conservative board has pushed for controversial reforms, including those that would limit the influence of teachers’ unions. New conservative members of the Jefferson County Public Schools Board of Education have also received criticism over transparency issues. In December the three

new members approved a lawyer’s contract without disclosing the terms during a public meeting. Potential misuse on the part of school board members is a concern that is shared by Sen. Linda Newell, D-Littleton, the vice chairwoman of the Senate Judiciary Committee. But Newell said that although she would have voted the bill out of committee, she was torn over how she would ultimately

vote once it got to the Senate floor. “I am a big transparency fan and I absolutely believe that there are potential misuses going on,” she said. “But it really is a tough bill.” Hodge said she is disappointed over the outcome of the bill, but that she expects this effort to be taken up again next year. “I think it’s an important issue,” she said. “I think transparency should always be paramount.”

Cyberbullying bill passes House Lawmakers divided over minimum wage hike Measure targets online bullying, concerns GOP

State Democrats support increase to $10.10 an hour By Vic Vela

vvela@coloradocommunitymedia.com State lawmakers spent more than four hours on March 13 debating an issue they have no control over. House Democrats argued in favor of a resolution to support an increase in the federal minimum wage, an economic policy debate that is currently raging at the national level. The resolution is non-binding and will do little to impact the battle that will soon take place in Congress. Still, Democrats and Republicans argued at length — and at times fiercely — over a proposed federal wage hike for low-income earners. Democrats argued that the current federal minimum wage of $7.25 an hour makes it difficult for workers to afford housing and basic necessities. And, Democrats said, raising the wage would reduce the need for low-income earners’ reliance on government assistance programs. “I think we can all recognize that families are struggling and continue to struggle,” said Rep. Dominick Moreno, DCommerce City, who was a reduced lunch fee recipient as a student and who once worked for minimum wage. “I know what it’s like not being able to fill your (gas) tank all the way because you cant afford the gas.” But Republicans countered that a hike in the minimum wage would have an adverse impact on low wage earners because small business owners wouldn’t be able to afford to keep them employed. “There’s going to be less people employed as a result of that and we’re actually going to hurt those we’re trying to help,”

said House Minority Leader Brian DelGrosso, R-Loveland. President Barack Obama and Democrats in Congress are pushing for legislation that would increase the federal minimum wage to $10.10 an hour. Democrats argue that the wage hike would lift millions of Americans out of poverty. The Colorado House resolution asserts that raising the federal minimum wage would “significantly boost the economy at large by increasing purchasing power of workers, thereby increasing the United States’ gross domestic product.” Democrats also contend that Coloradans are on their side on this issue, citing the voter-backed 2006 Initiative 42, which raised the state minimum wage and tied it to inflation. The state’s current minimum wage is $8 an hour. But Republicans cited a study by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, which estimates that the proposed minimum wage hike would result in the loss of 500,00 jobs. The White House points to estimates in the same study that indicate that more than 16 million Americans would get larger paychecks through a minimum wage increase. At one point during the lively House debate, Speaker Mark Ferrandino, DDenver, had to gavel the House to order after cheers and applause rang out from Republicans, who were supporting their GOP colleagues’ arguments in opposition to the resolution. Republicans also tried to tack on an amendment to the resolution that would have required it to be heard in a House committee — something that is usually reserved for legislation — so that citizens could show up to testify. The resolution passed the House in a 38-24 vote. Rep. Jared Wright of Fruita was the only Republican who voted yes.

vvela@coloradocommunitymedia.com A bill that would make it a crime to “cyberbully” a child passed the House on March 12, but not before Republicans raised concerns about the legislation’s punishment structure, which makes it a greater crime to target certain groups of people. House Bill 1131 would create misdemeanor penalties for those who commit cyberbulling — cases involving children who are bullied through technological platforms that include social media. The legislation aims to address a growing trend where kids are subjected to teasing and humiliation through cell phones or the Internet, which can often lead to emotional problems in children and can sometimes result in suicide. “Many of the children who are bullied never tell anybody,” said Rep. Rhonda Fields, D-Aurora, a bill sponsor. “If there is a child out there who is bullied, please tell an adult. Don’t suffer that emotional harm alone.” Fields’ bill drew large bipartisan support, having cleared the House following a 54-10 vote. But Republicans who voted for the bill said they hope the Senate takes up their concerns over what they feel is a fairness issue in the legislation. The bill would make cyberbullying a class 2 misdemeanor, but it creates a greater, class 1 misdemeanor penalty in cases where the victims are targeted because of their race, gender, religion, sexual orientation or physical or mental disability. A class 1 misdemeanor conviction carries with it a possible jail term of 6-18 months and fines that can reach $5,000. Those found guilty of a class 2 misdemeanor face the possibility of spending between 3 and 12 months behind bars

and a fine of up to $2,500. Rep. Bob Gardner, R-Colorado Springs, said there was “no reason to make a distinction” based on particular groups of victims, and tried to amend the bill to punish all cases under a singular class 1 misdemeanor. “Let’s not make some victims lesser victims,” Gardner said. Although his amendment failed, Gardner did up end voting for the bill as it stood, saying, “I am not one to allow the perfect to be the enemy of the good.” Rep. Frank McNulty, R-Highlands Ranch, also voted for the bill, calling cyberbulling a serious issue that needs to be addressed. But McNulty also supported Gardner’s amendment and said that he hopes the Senate will address Republican concerns. “Every child deserves equal protection under the law,” McNulty said. “This bill denies equal protection.” Democrats pushed back against Republican arguments, saying that certain groups of people are harmed more than others, when it comes to be bullied. House Speaker Mark Ferrandino, DDenver, who is gay and who was once a special education student, said that being bullied “hit in my core in a different way that it did other people.” “You’re already a marginalized person, you feel that way,” Ferrandino said. “You already feel like you’re an outcast.” Rep. Joe Salazar, D-Thornton, got riled up at Republicans’ assertions that all bullying is created equal. “At some point, we have to recognize in this General Assembly that racism, discrimination based on color or national origin, things of that nature, are unacceptable,” Salazar said. “… So it’s about damn time… it’s about time that the Colorado General Assembly recognize that we have to have these protected characteristics because we have kids who are being targeted for cyberbullying because of their innate characteristics.”

LEGISLATIVE BRIEFS Gordon honored by lawmakers

Lawmakers took a break from their work on March 11 to pay tribute to a former legislative leader. Members from both chambers of the General Assembly came together to remember Ken Gordon, a Denver Democrat who died of a heart attack in December at the age of 63. Gordon, a former state public defender, served in the House from 1992 to 2000 and was House minority leader for two years before being elected to the Senate, where he became that chamber’s majority leader in his final year of office in 2008. Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle lauded Gordon as an ethical and fair man and a revered party leader. “He believed very much in what we do here under this gold dome and how it impacted the lives of everyone in this state,” said Sen. Pat Steadman, D-Denver.

Prisoner earned time bill fails

A Senate committee on March 12 killed legislation that sought to revoke prisoners’ earned time credits when they commit new, violent crimes while behind bars. The bill had previously passed the



House with large bipartisan support. But Democrats on the Senate State, Veterans and Military Affairs Committee voted down the bill, with some arguing that the legislation was over-broad and might discourage good behavior on the part of inmates. Right now, the Department of Corrections is unable to strip away early release credits that prisoners earn for good behavior or for taking part in treatment programs behind bars, regardless of whether inmates commit violent crimes while incarcerated. The bill — which was sponsored by Republican House members Frank McNulty of Highlands Ranch, Mark Waller of Colorado Springs and Republican Sen. Bernie Herpin, also of Colorado Springs — was crafted in response to last year’s murder of former DOC chief Tom Clements, who was shot to death at his Monument home. The man suspected of killing Clements, Even Ebel, had received early release credit, even though he had committed violent crimes behind bars.

Student counseling bill moves forward

A bill that seeks to provide more counseling services for students at secondary schools passed a Senate committee on March 13.

Senate Bill 150 would double the funding that’s available through the current School Counselor Corps Grant Program, which was created by the Legislature in 2008 to improve counseling services in schools. The bill, which is sponsored by Democratic Sens. Rachel Zenzinger of Arvada and Nancy Todd of Aurora, would increase school counseling funds that are provided by the State Board of Education to $10 million a year, an increase of $5 million in annual funding. The bill provides more counseling services — which were cut as part of education budget woes during the recent recession — to students in grade levels 6-12. The bill now heads to the Senate Appropriations Committee.

Greyhound racing bill signed into law

Gov. John Hickenlooper on March 10 signed a bill into law that will ban greyhound racing in Colorado. Greyhound racing hasn’t taken place in the state for several years and was a sport that had seen its revenues decline for several years here before the last track closed in 2008. House Bill 1146 bans greyhound racing

from here on out, although it will remain legal to bet on the sport through simulcast wagering that is available at off-track betting venues.

Ban on online lottery sales passes committee

A bipartisan bill that seeks to place a three-year prohibition on online or telephone purchases of lottery tickets cleared its first legislative hurdle on March 13. Sponsors of House Bill 1142 argue that lottery sales through technological sources would hurt local businesses, especially convenience stores, who make thousands of dollars from those sales every year. For years, online lottery sales had been banned by the Colorado Lottery Commission because the U.S. Department of Justice said those sales violated the federal Wire Act. However, the justice department dropped the prohibition in 2011. After having previously passed the House, the bill — which is sponsored by House Minority Leader Brian DelGrosso, RLoveland and Sens. Jeanne Nicholson, DBlack Hawk and Kevin Grantham, R-Canon City — passed the Senate Finance Committee last week and will soon be voted on by the full Senate.

jreuter@coloradocommunitymedia. com Organizers for the fourth annual Career Connect for Douglas County students, have invited several new employers from a variety of industries who’ll offer high school students an inside glimpse at their everyday life on the job. “We’re hoping to make an impact with up to 650 students that can participate in over 30 sessions,” program coordinator Krista Zizzo said. “They’ll get a good idea of careers they’re interested in and careers they aren’t.” The multi-week, after-school career exploration program begins with student-and-parent orientation from 6 to 8 p.m. April 7 at Parker’s Chaparral High School. The introductory evening is a chance for everyone to meet the employers. Subsequent sessions, held weeknights through April 30 and typically at the participating companies’ offices, are for students only. The sessions are designed to give hands-on experience with a potential field. Those who enroll in the veterinarian session will be invited to a Parker animal clinic when the emergency room is open. “If you get a little squeamish at the sight of an animal on the ER stable, it’s good to know that now,” Zizzo said. Careers highlighted during the 2014 sessions include broadcast operations, chiropractic, construction management, culinary arts, dentistry, engineering, emergency services, forensic science, environmental studies, health-

care, technology, law enforcement, military, nursing, real estate and writing among others. New to this year’s lineup is aviation, cosmetology and alternative energy. “We’ve expanded beyond the original offerings,” Zizzo said. The 2014 selections also include returns of some old favorites. “One of the most popular is a session hosted by (coroner) Lora Thomas called `What the coroner really does,’” Zizzo said. “That was the first to sell out last year. I can tell just with four days open, it’s going be the same this year.” Culinary arts also is again generating early interest, Zizzo said. The Colorado Culinary Academy, based in Greenwood Village, will host students at their school for an evening of cooking. “We’re going to take them inside the classroom and let them prepare dinner as a group, in a professional setting,” admissions and student services director Paul Kelly said. Culinary program students also will learn about the fast-changing world of nutrition and cuisine, and the opportunities that presents. “The industry itself is doing a shift, and part of it is because the United States food scene is maturing,” Kelly said. “Food scene wise, we’re starting to catch up with Europe.” Kelly described the ground-to-table movement in which consumers increasingly are demanding a return to simpler, more wholesome foods. “It is not all about chains,” he said. “There is creativity attached to it. And you have to understand the business to be able to run the operation.” For more information and to register, visit sponsor the Douglas County Educational Foundation’s website at www.dcefcolorado.org.

lighter teacher loads, shorter off-periods By Jane Reuter

jreuter@coloradocommunitymedia.com After two years on a block schedule, Mountain Vista High School will return to the more traditional class periods for the 2014-15 academic year. At least four other Douglas County School District high schools want to follow suit. Mountain Vista parents said the primary reason for veering away from the current 6-of-8 block schedule is to ease teacher workloads, bolster staff morale and ensure quality teachers stay. “Our teachers need to see some victories,” said Curt Coffman, co-chairman of MVHS’ School Accountability Committee. “They need to see that somebody’s really paying attention to what they can do, and that there is some kind of advocacy there. I think this is one step in the right direction.” Concern about upperclassmen not spending enough time in school also played a part in the decision. Most Douglas County high schools have been on the 6-of-8 schedule for the last two years. Under it, students have fewer classes per day but meet for longer, 90-minute periods than under the 5-of7 schedule. It also requires all high school teachers to teach an additional class. Mountain Vista will hire

seven teachers to evenly distribute the workload on the 5-0f-7 schedule, thanks to a steadily improving economy and rising state funds. Since budget and scheduling concerns prompted the block schedule’s implementation in 2012-13, per-pupil funding has increased about $280. Because Mountain Vista’s enrollment is growing faster than other high schools, Principal Mike Weaver said, “I think I was the first one that was able to do it feasibly.” He may not be the last. Rock Canyon, Highlands Ranch, Chaparral and ThunderRidge also are contemplating a return to the 5-of-7 schedule, according to a list of budget priorities submitted to the District Accountability Committee earlier this year. “We would like to request that Rock Canyon High School return to a 5/7 schedule to increase instructional minutes and to reduce the number of off periods students have access to,” reads RCHS’ top budget priority submitted Jan. 31. Instructional time at MVHS will increase by about 20 minutes per-class, per-week under the schedule, which is a return to one last used in 2011-12. Students will see their teachers four times a week instead of three, and have fewer of the long off-periods that have prompted community concern about idle teens. The change also will “meet the needs of some of our teachers who were working so hard…” said Weaver. “I think it was certainly a relief and a boost in morale we were able to (change the schedule).”

MVHS is returning to a modified 5-of-7 schedule, with three days a week of 55-minute classes and two days a week of 90-minute block classes. A district leader said all high schools considering a different schedule have DCSD’s blessing. “Buildings make their own decisions, as we’ve said all along,” said Dan McMinimee, assistant superintendent of secondary education. “I love the fact they have the dollars right now to even have the conversation.” DCSD requires schools to meet specific criteria in any schedule they choose, McMinimee said, including keeping core class sizes to 30 students or fewer, retaining all electives, meeting required instructional minutes and not capping the number of classes a student can take. Mountain Vista surveyed teachers and students before making the decision, especially juniors and seniors who’d experienced both schedules and have the off-periods that concerned some. “Obviously, kids enjoyed the free time (under the block),” Weaver said. “My follow-up question was, `Have you used the time wisely?’ About 50 percent used the time wisely and 50 percent not so much. “They’re still going to have time off. There just won’t be the possibility they’ll have three (90-minute) block periods off.” Under the block, Weaver said some students only were spending about 60 percent of the instructional day in classes.

SALOME’S STARS FOR THE WEEK OF MaR 10, 2014

ARIES (Mar 21 to apr 19) although you tend to bore easily and leave others to finish what you start, this is one time when you’d be wise to complete things on your own. Then you can move on to something new. TAURUS (apr 20 to May 20) Your indecision about a personal situation might come out of those mixed signals you’re getting. Best not to make any commitments until you have a better sense of how things are going. GEMINI (May 21 to Jun 20) a dispute appears to be getting out of hand. But you should be able to step in and bring it all under control soon. Be patient. News about a potential career move might be delayed.

“Vine and Cheese” by Cindy Brabec-King won 2nd Honorable Mention in the Colorado Watercolor Society exhibit at the Lone Tree Arts Center. Courtesy photo

Sun and shadow, vine and cheese… Colorado Watercolor Society’s annual exhibition in 23rd year By Sonya Ellingboe sellingboe@ coloradocommunitymedia.com Eighty-eight paintings hang in the spacious Lone Tree Arts Center lobby and hallway; watercolors selected from Colorado Watercolor Society members by juror Carl Dalio. Dalio, a nationally recognized painter and teacher from Sedona, Ariz., originally was trained as an architect. While in Denver to jury this show, he also presented a workshop for CWS members. Dalio awarded the Best in Show honor to Frank Francese of Grand Junction for his “Keebler Pass.” It features strong light and shadow contrasts in a crisp, fresh looking, skillfully painted mountain landscape with a stream that almost bubbles, bright patches of sun and a dark sky. Francese teaches workshops across the nation and internationally and one

“Keebler Pass” by Frank Francese won Best of Show in the annual Colorado Watercolor Society’s state exhibit. Photo by Sonya Ellingboe sees from his website that one is scheduled in Littleton in October at Judy Patti’s busy Studio, 5849 S. Broadway. There are many other winners — too numerous to mention them all — but we note Linda Olmstead’s “Lone Star,” an abstract in intense reds that won the Pikes Peak Watercolor Society Award;

Rick Forsyth’s almost print-like “Two Ladies at a Mosque, which won first honorable mention and Cindy Brabec-King’s large, mouthwatering “Vine and Cheese,” which was awarded second honorable mention. Tanis Bula of Littleton, known for her florals, won the Pained Toe Society’s

award for her handsome “Iris in Sunlight” and Littleton’s Joyce Shelton won a fourth honorable mention for her whimsical “Dog’s Best Friend.” The variety in techniques and styles makes this a worthwhile exhibit to visit for those trying to master this tricky medium, as well as for those who have done so. One will still wonder: “How did she do that?” when looking closely at some of the varied and intricate effects. If only the lighting were better. When the center was built, the acoustics in the theater received precise attention with excellent results, but some advice from a lighting expert is still in order for maximum effective presentation of visual artwork. We feel confident that it will happen. If you go: The 23rd Annual State Exhibition of the Colorado Watercolor Society runs through March 30 at the Lone Tree Arts Center, 10075 Commons St., Lone Tree. Gallery hours: 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays through Fridays and prior to performances. Art sales can be handled through the box office. Admission is free.

South Metro Denver Chamber mounts Calendar of Events BIG push for the B.I.G. Day With a 6 weeks to go, The South Metro Denver Chamber’s Nonprofit & Business Partnership is pushing to fill the last slots left for the 4th Annual B.I.G. Day taking place on Saturday, April 26th. 25 non-profits have signed up for the event. This year’s goal is to have over 1,000 volunteers helping local non-profits with whatever needs doing between 8:30 and noon on the B.I.G. Day. B.I.G. stands for “Be Involved, Give.” “Last year we had hundreds of volunteers working together in a wide variety of projects,” said Chamber President and CEO John Brackney. “You don’t have to be a chamber member to volunteer so we encourage businesses, service clubs, church groups and families to join us in rolling up our sleeves to make a difference on this most special day.” Examples of the types of volunteer opportunities range from weeding and planting at the Denver Botanic Gardens, putting meals together for TLC Meals on Wheels, sort and load medical supplies with Project CURE, cleaning parks with the South Suburban Park Foundation,

Volunteers plant new growth at the Denver Botanic Gardens during last year’s B.I.G. Day.

packing food boxes for distribution at the Action Center and many others both indoors and out. Many projects allow young children to help when accompanied by an adult - a great way to teach community involvement. At last year’s B.I.G. Day, both nonprofits and volunteers alike said the B.I.G. Day was just that: Brien Darby, Manager of the Denver Botanic Gardens community gardening program was thrilled with the experience. “I presented them with some very big tasks with a lot of digging and heavy lifting and they were just about the most enthusiastic group I have ever worked with! We completed all the tasks I had planned and even started on a few additional projects. I really appreciate the level of teamwork and “ready for anything” attitude that we consistently receive from volunteers participating in the BIG help day.” “The BIG day was such a rewarding experience for me. Helping Spa4thePink alongside an amazing group of people really showed me what a difference we can make in our community,” said volunteer Mary Soldwisch of Nexus Web Studio. Businesses, organizations and even families can also bring their work force together and sign up as a team to help a nonprofit. Organization and company teams will be given special marketing opportunities and recognition. “If at first you succeed, then do it again,” says Brackney. “On Saturday April 26th, we plan on doing just that. In just one morning you, your family, club or business can truly make a difference in our community, meet and learn about the great non-profits that serve our area and best of all have great fun doing it.” The B.I.G. Day isn’t all work and no play. After a full morning of volunteering, participants are invited to the South Metro Denver Chamber offices for a celebration full of fun and

Remembering the Ludlow Massacre Anthony J. Garcia brings historical story back to Su Teatro stage

if you go “Ludlow: El Grito de las Minas (The Cry of the Mines)” plays through March 30 at Su Teatro, 721 Santa Fe Drive in Denver, with performances at 7:30 p.m. Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and one matinee at 2 p.m. Sunday, March 30. For tickets: www.suteatro.org, 303296-0219.

sellingboe@coloradocommunitymedia.com Along the highway between Walsenberg and Trinidad, there is a grassy open area set aside with a tall monument and parking spaces. Those history buffs that stop will read that it commemorates the Ludlow Massacre, an event that affected people from many cultures who were working in Colorado’s coal mines — as well as affecting the state more widely. On April 20, 1914, the Colorado Coalfield War that had started in September 1913 turned into a skirmish between striking miners and the Colorado State Militia. Twenty-five people lost their lives, including women and 11 children. It was an important moment in the history of Colorado and in the development of the American Labor movement. A year ago, Gov. John Hickenlooper established the Ludlow Centennial Commission, which

Garcia to observe the 100th anniversary of the Ludlow Massacre in Colorado, playing at Su Teatro. Courtesy photo by Valeriana Sloan includes historians, academics, union and National Guard representatives and a librarian. Together, they scheduled events at vari-

ous locations to commemorate the Ludlow Massacre and events surrounding it. Included in interpretative

events is a production of Anthony J. Garcia’s play, “Ludlow: El Grito de Las Minas (The Cry of the Mines),” presented at El Centro Su Teatro through March 30. It’s an update, with new music, to a play Garcia wrote some years ago while visiting his sister in Walsenberg and studying the area’s history. (Some original cast members are also in this production.) The play, with musical direction by Daniel Valdez, traces the history of a fictional Hispanic family, from the viewpoint of Amelia (Megally Luna), who visits Trinidad to sell her grandmother’s old house. That grandmother was Sara Martinez (also played by Megally Luna) who is modeled on Garcia’s strong mother, he writes. After the family loses its New Mexico ranch, the husband goes to work

as a miner and loses his life in a cave-in. Sara and her two sons, Pepe and Jesus move to southern Colorado to work for Colorado Fuel and Iron, owned by John D. Rockefeller. Scenes move between 1991, 1905, 1913, 1914 and back to 1991. A large cast tells the miner’s story and several parallel more personal ones. Garcia’s characters represent the Mexican portion of the coal miners, but they talk about the wide variation of nationalities and races found in this community: Greek, Italian, Eastern European, Black, Norwegian and more — and they also talk about the distrust between them — the atmosphere was volatile in more ways than just the labor/management tension. Music is always part of Garcia’s plays and here it varies from Mexican folk music to a Chilean miners song to Garcia’s new “April Mourning Song.” The live band is a fine addition to the production, placed to the edge just below the stage. While acting is a bit uneven, many cast members have strong voices and the ensemble tells a compelling story of an era in Colorado history.

Vaulting to the top of her class Castle View junior improves leaps and bounds during indoor track and field season By Jim Benton

jbenton@coloradocommunitymedia. com Christina Stathakis will be reaching for the sky this spring. And after the strides she made during the indoor track season the junior Castle View pole-vaulter just might reach her goals. Stathakis, who tied for 13th in the Class 5A state meet last season with a vault of 9-foot-6 inches, started the indoor season in November by clearing 10-6, lost a jumpoff at the Simplot Games with an 11-9 effort and achieved 12-foot at the Air Force Academy in late February. “It’s been in the last two months, quite an experience,” said Stathakis. “I’m going up heights pretty fast. I’m aiming for the highest I can get. Right now I’m focusing on technique. With better technique come better heights. “I know reaching for the sky is the best and I want to break those records. As long as I’m only focusing on the things I can do better my heights will continue to go up. I’m so excited going into this season.” The all-time Colorado girls’ pole vault record is 13-3 and the state meet mark is 13-1. With her recent improvement, Stathakis all of a sudden could become a state title contender. “She’s looking real good so far this year,” said Castle View head coach Ryan Whitenack. “Her best last year was 10-6 and she’s already gone 12-foot. She worked really hard in the offseason.”

Andy Munoz is the Sabercats’ pole vault coach and also works at Boulder’s Above the Bar where Stathakis has been training for the past year. “She is progressing real well,” Munoz said. “At the Air Force Academy meet, she jumped 12-feet. It puts her right in the thick of things to challenge for state.” Stathakis didn’t venture into pole-vaulting until her freshman year at Castle View. “When I started off my freshman year it was mostly to get a feel for it,” recalled Stathakis. “I really didn’t think I would pick it up so fast. It was super exciting and it was so much fun that it stuck with me. “I did swim years before so I did have some upper body strength. I just focused on what my coaches were telling me and I watched tons of videos of Sergey Bubka and kind of got the feel. It really just took off with me.” Pole-vaulting is a technical athletic event. There is a lot involved like the grip, approach, run and carry of the pole, transfer, take off, hand and push press, wing and extension, and the turn and clearance. It can be a treacherous event, but Stathakis jumped right in. “It’s so much of an athletic event and the hardest, in my opinion, in track and probably one of the hardest sports in high school,” explained Whitenack. “It is so involved. Christina has many strengths and she is very, very strong. “It is a very difficult event and there is a lot of practice that goes into it. There are some dangers too. There are a lot of things that can happen that can make your day go real bad, real fast.” Munoz argues that Stathakis is special. “She is an all-around athlete,” he said. “That’s the thing about vault, it’s different

Castle View junior Christina Stathakis registered 12 feet in the pole vault at a meet in February. Photo by Jim Benton than other events. She’s got good speed, she’s got good strength and versatile leaping ability. It’s kind of all those things together. “After that it is really technical. She’s great. She’s an all-around athlete, has a good attitude and the biggest thing is she wants to get better. The fear factor is something to overcome. It’s hard to get great athletes to come try it.” Stathakis doesn’t ponder the perils. “Rarely, but sometimes,” she said. “I do get it knocked into me usually after vaults when I am kind of hurting. Most of the time you don’t think of the possibilities that could happen. You don’t need to.” Stathakis, who is 5-foot-4, 120 pounds and also competes on Castle View’s relay teams, maintains her offseason training has been the key to her development. “That has been a huge part of my suc-

cess,” she said. “I started freshman year in the spring and ended with the track season. I didn’t do any work with pole-vaulting until sophomore year with track. I joined Above the Bar in April of track season and I’ve been working with them ever since. This is the first full year that I continuously worked with pole-vaulting. “Every weekend of the winter, I had a meet. There is a lot think about before you jump. You put it in your brain you have to focus on something then once you to step up to the vault you have to just let it sit back in the back of your brain and know that your muscle memory will know what to do and kind of erase what you are thinking about. Most of the time I get on the runway and tell myself one queue or push for the sky, go big hands and push for the sky or reach for the sky.”

Valor girls fall in semis to Broomfield Scoreboard Eagles return 10 players next season from Final Four roster

jbenton@coloradocommunitymedia. com Valor Christian girls basketball coach Sheryyl Klosterman will have a slew of experienced players back next year. Valor made its first ever appearance in the Class 4A Final Four March 13 but the Eagles were routed, 67-46, in a semifinal game against tournament-tested Broomfield at the CU Events Center in Boulder. Klosterman will have 10 players back for the 2014-15 campaign off this year’s squad that finished with a 23-4 record. “It was an awesome season,” said Klosterman. “I’m proud of the kids and the way they played. That’s very exciting that we have a lot of players returning. I told the returners that we’re not going to talk about why we lost the Broomfield game, we’re just going to start working on those things. “When the offseason starts we’re going to work and be real motivated. We need to work real hard in the offseason and make ourselves better.” Junior forward Kendall Bradbury is already looking ahead. “We’re bringing back a lot of leadership and we’re all going to be experienced after this experience we got in the Final Four,” she said. “Now we kind of know what it’s like to play out here. It was a huge learning experience. “Being able to make it to the Final Four was awesome. We played together, played strong, had fun and made history. From here we have to work in the offseason, get in the weight room and work on things. The loss is going to hurt for a while but it’s going to be motivation for us to come back next year.” Broomfield, winners of five state titles, was making its eighth trip to the Final Four and the experience showed. Valor’s only lead came a minute-and-ahalf into the game at 4-2 and then Broomfield went on a 12-0 run and began to take

They are good for a reason. Those kids had experience and they played well together. “We were kind of out of sync on offense. We were pressing a little bit. As much as we talked about it being just another game, just go out and play because we have nothing to lose, the pressure was still there.” Bradbury agrees. “We got inside our own heads a little bit,” she said. “We just kind of psyched ourselves out. Broomfield is a great team. They know what it’s like to play here. We just didn’t

come out and play like we had been playing, we didn’t play Valor basketball and we didn’t play together as a team.” Broomfield shot 52.2 percent in the second half and held a 28-point lead at 61-33 with six minutes left in the game. Sophomore Madison McCoy came off the bench to lead Valor with 13 points that included a trio of 3-point baskets. Caroline Bryan and Bradbury, Valor’s leading scorers, each had 10 points. Bradbury pulled down a team-high eight rebounds, while junior Madison Waldon grabbed seven boards for a Valor team that shot 32.7 percent from the field for the game. Valor committed 19 turnovers, which led to 17 Broomfield points.

Rock Canyon 11, Loveland 3 Rock Canyon scored four runs in the second inning and three runs in the third inning to help them a 11-3 win over Loveland. The Jaguars also scored two runs in the sixth, one in the fourth and one in the first. Junior Chris Givin hit a home run and sophomore Daryl Myers hit a double.

Leaders urge involvement in state water plan Voucher Partnerships needed to ensure continued quality

Continued from Page 1

By Jane Reuter

jreuter@coloradocommunitymedia. com Unlike most of its western neighbors, Colorado doesn’t have a water plan. And while a draft of one is underway and due on the governor’s desk in December, officials say it’s vital that the state’s business community get involved in its creation. Several of them reiterated that message during a March 14 Colorado business leaders water policy briefing at the Lone Tree Arts Center. “We’re not going to walk into the Colorado water future we want,” said James Eklund, director of the Colorado Water Conservation Board. “We’re going to have to be intentional about it. The power of shared self-interest can overcome the rhetoric you often hear in the water discussion.” The breakfast event was sponsored by Accelerate Colorado, a partnership of businesses and local governments that works with federal leaders on key state interests. None currently are more pressing than water. Gov. John Hickenlooper directed the CWCB to begin work on a state water plan in May 2013. A final report is expected a year after the draft is due, in late 2015. The plan is intended to address a range of issues, including the gap between supply and demand, the impact of climate change, water quality and protection of water rights. Colorado will add 5 million more people by 2050, a projection that underscores the concern about ensuring a secure supply. “We need to partner together,” said Douglas County Commissioner Jill Repella. “We’re planning today for the next generation and the generation after that.” A prime example of a collaborative water effort is Denver Water’s WISE (Water, Infrastructure and Supply Ef-

Water is the one resource that could derail the state’s huge growth forecast. “Thousands of Colorado businesses depend on this growth and I am one of them,” said Phelps Engineering president Lonny Phelps. “We’re in a dry climate. It’s not going to change. We are in a water overuse area. It magnifies the need for a state water plan. “If no changes occur, demand will outstrip supply creating shortages.” Colorado’s water issues are unique. In addition to being an arid climate with high growth, it and Hawaii are the only two states from which all water flows out of its borders. Additionally, the state’s water rights are administered according to an Appropriation Doctrine based on the principle of “first in time, first in right.” It allocates the right to a quan-

tity of water to the first person who uses it for a beneficial purpose. Those users get top priority for water when supply is in question. Established in 1879, the doctrine has proven itself time and again, Eklund said. “We’re seeing repeated attempts to do away with the doctrine of prior appropriation,” he said. “It’s not some dead, stale doctrine we’ve outgrown somehow. Our system of local control and private property rights rest son that foundational doctrine.” Eklund urged the business owners in attendance not only to work together on water issues, but to involve others in the process. “Go to your neighbors that don’t have access to this kind of presentation I gave this morning,” he said. “Have a conversation about why this is important to them. Engage them with a website that makes sense to people that aren’t water wonks.” To view one of those sites, visit www.coloradowaterplan.com

decision — didn’t dampen the excitement of some involved with the case. “We’re thrilled,” said Cindy Barnard, president of the nonprofit Taxpayers for Public Education. “We certainly see this as a victory for us. When you look at the way the court has written the writ, it’s very clear they’re looking at all the substantive issues we brought forward.” The pilot program, named the Choice Scholarship Program, allows parents to use state-issued funds toward tuition at private schools. Most of the schools included in the program are religious. Barnard and others, including the Interfaith Alliance of Colorado, filed suit after DCSD introduced the program, and Denver District Court declared it unconstitutional in August 2011. The Colorado Court of Appeals issued the opposite opinion in February 2012. But until a final decision is made, the pilot program is on hold. “The district welcomes the opportunity for the state’s highest court to review a case that presents such important issues for our state and our country,” school board member Craig Richardson said. The voucher program was the first among several changes introduced by the reform-driven school board. Opponents say it blurs the line between separation of church and state, and dilutes funding for public schools. Supporters say the program offers parents another educational choice. Michael Bindas, an attorney from the Institute for Justice who’s representing three of the voucher families, is not surprised by the decision. “It’s unfortunate the scholarship program’s implementation is going to be further delayed by (this),” he said. “But the good news is the program’s constitutionality will now be finally resolved. And a decision upholding the program would have precedential value statewide. It would also have persuasive authority in other states.” Richardson characterized the Supreme Court’s decision as “purely procedural.” “It does not mean the court disagrees with the ruling of the court of appeals,” he said. “It simply means the court recognizes the importance of the case …” Alex Luchenitser, an attorney for plaintiff Americans United, is pleased by the news. “This is a very important case,” he said. “This program uses taxpayer funds to pay for religious education. One of the most fundamental principles of the American constitutional tradition of church state separation is taxpayers should not be forced to support religious instruction in a faith to which they don’t believe.” Opening briefs are due in six weeks, with additional deadlines set for respondents and reply briefs. A hearing then will be set.
