GOP assembly pares down field Former JeffCo lawmaker Kopp earns top line on primary ballot in gubernatorial race By Vic Vela
email@example.com It took Republican delegates just one ballot over the weekend to pick from a crowded field of hopefuls looking to challenge Gov. John Hickenlooper this November — and one candidate in particular emerged as a surprise force in the race.
Delegates who converged on Boulder for the Republican State Assembly on April 12 also picked candidates for other key statewide races. The results included the clearing of opposition to U.S. Rep. Cory Gardner, who can now set his sights exclusively on Democratic incumbent Mark Udall in the race for a Senate seat this fall. Coming into the assembly, at least one gubernatorial candidate looked like a sure bet to get on the ballot — Secretary of State Scott Gessler. But delegates made room for another hopeful: former state Senate Minority Leader Mike Kopp.
In a crowded GOP field, Kopp will have the top line when Republican voters fill out their ballots in the gubernatorial primary in June. That’s because Kopp surprised many by emerging with the top vote count among the 3,900-plus delegates. “It’s always nice to have the ‘big Mo,’ “ said Kopp, who represented the southern part of Jefferson County in the state Senate from 2007 -11. “Our message worked, our organization worked. So, phase one is complete and now we’re excited to move into phase two.” Kopp’s nomination speech — held in-

side the University of Colorado’s Coors Events Center — took on a fighting theme. Kopp talked about being an underdog who takes down “giants” and referenced his own background as an Army ranger who doesn’t know the meaning of the word surrender. “Surrender is not a Ranger word and it’s not a conservative word,” Kopp said. Kopp’s 34 percent of the delegate vote tally edged Gessler’s, who also made the primary ballot by garnering 33 of the Kopp continues on Page 6

rboldrey@ coloradocommunitymedia.com Respect Mother Earth. Honor those who came before you and serve you. Honor the Great Creator, Jesus, Jehovah or whomever you pray to. Respect your neighbors and their cultural differences. “Just because they may pray in a different way to a different God or are praying for different things, doesn’t mean they are praying to a different spiritual being or should be viewed differently or that they are weird,” said Sid Whiting, 53, a Lakota elder to a group of young scouts April 9 in Castle Pines. Whiting was among seven visitors
from the Denver-based Native American Sportsmen Association that shared life lessons, danced and drummed for Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts from Pack and Troop 856, their families and community members who stopped by DCS Montessori for the hour-long presentation. Whiting, whose family helped start the Denver Indian Center and the Tall Bull Memorial Grounds in Daniels Park, said the sportsmen association’s mission is to “educate non-natives and natives about the spiritual, cultural, physical and mental Native American beliefs.” On April 9, he and others did just that. Steve Lapoint, Whiting’s stepson, spoke with those in attendance about the place of many Native Americans in today’s society. He talked to the youth about his own military service as well as the service of many Native Americans before him, including the famous Code Talkers who helped the United States become victorious in World War II.

The issue of whether the open carry of firearms should be allowed in Town of Castle Rock-owned buildings and parks will go to a public vote. A special public meeting was held April 14 as a necessary follow-up to a successful referendum petition a group of residents initiated after council voted in late January to repeal an 11-year-old ordinance banning open carry on town property. In accordance with state statute, at the meeting, council was faced with the decision to either rescind their January decision or put the issue to a vote. After listening to public testimony, council voted unanimously to let residents make the decision. “One thing that came through pretty loud and clear in the several hearings we had was the lack of certainty in what the people of Castle Rock think about this,” said outgoing Councilmember Clark Hammelman. “If we choose (to rescind the January decision) we would never find out what they think. I think we need to find out.” Hammelman had been one of three councilmembers, along with Mark Heath and Chip Wilson, to vote against the repeal. Mayor Paul Donahue and councilmembers Joe Procopio, Jennifer Green and Renee Valentine had all voted in January to repeal the 2003 ordinance, which Donahue pointed out was also made in a 4-3 council vote. “Back in 2003, when the ban was put into place, it was a different time,” Donahue said. “It was shortly after 9-11. People were scared, nervous and I think we now live in a time where federal government and state government are restricting our rights. “I find it odd that we need to go to a special election to vote on a constitutional Vote continues on Page 7

Portrait of peace a work in progress The lyrics drift softly through the quiet, cobblestoned courtyard. “Good day, sunshine good day, sunshine gooood day, sunshine…” A youngish man with vivid blue eyes, in faded jeans and black velvet jacket, strums a guitar and sings, the music stand in front of him holding a repertoire of Beatles songs, at his feet a black hat for donations from appreciative listeners. He seems oblivious to the people milling around, hearing only the melodies and words that lift him beyond the wall that stretches behind. But the wall, which is why he is here, can’t be ignored. It is a psychedelic, graphic explosion of color, an ever-changing riot of words and swirling graffiti’s reason for being has been long buried under more than 30 years of layers of paint. For those who remember, though, like Jan, 36, the guitarist who wouldn’t give his last name, the wall, just across from the French Embassy in Prague, is testament to the energizing and lasting power of the universal ideal of peace — even if the passage of time has somewhat obscured the message. The Lennon Wall. Also known as the Peace Wall. Or the Graffiti Wall. “It’s really getting twisted,” Jan says of how the wall is viewed by thousands who visit each year. “It bothers the local people — they don’t like the way it is now… But I’m sure John Lennon would like it this way. I don’t think he would have liked to have his face on it.” That’s how the wall, the phenomenon,
started — with an immense portrait of the day. John Lennon following his death on Dec. The battle on the wall continued until 8, 1980.

Margolis and was a huge Beatles fan as a child, felt it was important to see the wall and leave something significant behind. Near the sidewalk, she painted “Infinitum Nihil,” Latin for “nothing is forever,” as she interprets it. The saying, representative of past events in her life, is tattooed on her right foot. “It’s just a meaningful thing that I try to live by each day,” she says, hoping “somebody will actually be able to read it and know what it means.” Jan, the guitarist, has sung at the wall for the past three tourist seasons. The season depends on the weather — the nicer it is, the longer the season. Last year, the cold stayed away and he played and sang for eight months. He has loved Beatles music since he was a boy. “It’s my favorite band,” he says simply. “I like the vibe…” As a Prague native, he has watched the wall’s evolution. It could be no other way than how it is today, he says. Free. Open to anyone to paint anything. “It’s the only way you can keep it,” he says. “Otherwise, it would be a museum with John Lennon’s face and rope. It would be … boring.” But if he could give those who visit a thought to leave with, it would be this: “Give peace a chance, in your mind, in your mind … it’s not always easy.” On this day, as sunlight filters through trees just beginning to leaf, “Love is a beautiful chaos” leaps from the wall in bold, red paint. And if you look closely, you’ll spot a blue face of John Lennon in a corner. No matter what is painted, Margolis says, Lennon’s face can always be found amid the crazy quilt of expression, a soft and subtle reminder of why the wall even exists. A throng of tourists suddenly crowds the small courtyard, jostling to read the wall and leave their inscriptions. Jan, an unperturbed island in the middle, begins to sing: Healey continues on Page 4

Larkspur votes down recreational marijuana Residents emphatically reject facilities in town By Ryan Boldrey
firstname.lastname@example.org Residents of the Town of Larkspur voted against allowing recreational marijuana facilities in the town by a ratio of nearly 3-1 on April 8. An ordinance that would have allowed for a minimum of three recreational pot shops as well as a number of grow facilities on the north end of the small town was defeated 73-26. Two other ballot questions, both of which were contingent on that ordinance passing, were also defeated by a similar ratio. A question that dealt with recreational marijuana regulations went down 73-25 and a question that asked residents whether they were in favor of a marijuana excise
tax of 5 percent went down 75-23. Had the initial ordinance passed, Larkspur would have become the first municipality in Douglas County to allow recreational sales and grow facilities, and would have been the only stop on the Interstate 25 corridor between Pueblo and Denver where people over 21 would have been able to legally purchase marijuana for recreational use. A traffic study done by those who drafted the ordinance showed that an additional 700 vehicles would pass through the 183-person town each day to visit the marijuana stores if the ordinance passed. Concerns over the extra traffic, an increase in crime, a need for additional law enforcement and a loss of small-town values were all vocalized at an April 3 public meeting. At that gathering, 39 citizens, neighbors of the community, business leaders and members of law enforcement spoke against the ordinance, and only one person, Perry Park resident James McVaney, spoke in favor.
McVaney, of Cannabis Patients Alliance, helped put together the petition that landed the proposed ordinance on the ballot. The ordinance, as McVaney reminded the public in attendance, was drafted in a way that the town would only keep the first $45,000 in tax revenue from sales, with the remainder of the money going to residents — something he said could earn them each upward of $24,000 a year. Opponents claimed McVaney’s numbers were too good to be true, and one 30year resident, Clyde Parker, went so far as to say even if they were correct, he didn’t want people to label Larkspur as the “prostitute of Douglas County” as a collective group of people that “just lay there and take” the tax windfall. Douglas County Sheriff’s Office Chief Tim Moore also cautioned voters at the meeting that if the plan did pass, the department would be coming to the town in the third quarter of the year to renegotiate its contract with the town. Moore said if

the plan passed, DCSO would no longer be able to contract services with the town at an annual price tag of $24,000, but would seek to increase the number of deputies on patrol by five at a cost of $525,000 per year to the town. “The ordinance only allows the town to keep $45,000 in tax revenue before it gives the money back to the voters, I’m concerned how you are going to fund your public safety without having the money to support it,” Moore said. The majority of the town’s existing tax revenue comes from the annual Renaissance Festival, and Jim Paradise Jr., whose family owns and operates the festival, spoke fervently against the ordinance and said there was “no way” he would continue to bring his family to the community if the ordinance passed. His comments and those of others left questions as to whether the Renaissance Festival would have continued to call Larkspur home if the ordinance had passed.

House GOP whip steps down Adams County Republican resigns on heels of vote to force him out By Vic Vela
firstname.lastname@example.org A House GOP rift has led to the unexpected resignation. Rep. Kevin Priola, R-Henderson stepped down as House minority whip April 14, four days removed from an unsuccessful Republican caucus vote that sought his ouster. Priola will remain a state representative. A senior Republican House member sought to replace Priola in his leadership role, a day removed from his role in a vote on an education bill in which Priola did not side with Republicans on a school district transparency amendment, which angered many in his own party — including Rep. Chris Holbert, R-Parker, who hurled an expletive toward Priola on the House floor. Although he acknowledged that the majority of his party wanted him out as whip, Priola believes he did nothing wrong. “I didn’t want this to be the story of the last month of the session,” Priola said. “We have a lot of bills we’re working on. At the end of the day, I believe I made the strong conservative vote for real transparency for tax payers and for parents, down to the local school level.” Holbert called for a vote to replace Priola as party whip — a position that is charged with rounding up votes among party members — during a hastily-called GOP caucus meeting that was announced just before the House adjourned its morning business on April 10. Holbert sought
to replace Priola with Douglas County Rep. Polly Lawrence, who is still considered to be a candidate for the post. “Rep. Priola either doesn’t want to do the job of whip or doesn’t know how to do the job of whip,” Holbert said. Holbert and other Republicans were upset over Priola’s handling last week of a whip count involving a GOP amendment to the Student Success Act, a bipartisan education bill. The failed GOP amendment, which dealt with transparency over school financial operations, competed with a Democratic transparency amendment that ultimately made it on to the bill. Priola did not support the GOP amendment, nor did he work to whip votes in favor of it. Priola said that the prevailing amendment ensured that school districts would provide the public with greater transparency in a more uniform statistic system. “I believe I took the conservative vote,” he said. “I firmly believe that what I did was the right thing. It’s just that there’s a strong faction in our party who want school districts to do whatever they want, no questions asked.” Holbert said that’s not the point. “Rep. Priola has every right to vote the way he thinks is right or wrong on any bill and that’s what he did,” he said. “But the disappointment was that he did not inform the leadership that he was working against the (amendment).” After the vote on the amendment, Holbert walked up to Priola at his desk and hurled an expletive toward him and walked away. Holbert said his comments came during a moment of frustration. “Tensions were probably running a little higher than normal,” he acknowledged. The initial effort to replace Priola was unsuccessful. There was confusion among the caucus as to whether members could fill a leadership seat without it being va-
cant, or without someone submitting a resignation. Holbert felt that it was OK for the caucus to convene to replace leadership posts at any time. That logic wasn’t accepted by all party members. “If your analysis is true, then there would be mass chaos,” Rep. Frank McNulty, R-Highlands Ranch, told Holbert. After recessing for a while to confer with party members, Rep. Kathleen Conti of Littleton, the caucus chairwoman, determined that the effort to replace a non-vacant leadership post was improper. That prompted a vote among the majority of party members to adjourn. But there clearly was sentiment among party members to discuss replacing Priola. Both Priola and Holbert said there would have been enough votes to oust Priola, had a vote gone forward. Holbert said the move by Priola to resign was for the best. “I think this was a good decision for him,” Holbert said. “I wish we could have done this last week. But I think a significant majority of his caucus agrees with his decision.” “My colleagues, probably the majority of them, want me to go,” Priola said. “I don’t want to fight and hang on to something when I could spend my time with my family.”
School funding measures move forward House passes bills that pump about $500 million into K-12 schools By Vic Vela
email@example.com A pair of funding measures that will provide schools with nearly $500 million in new revenue passed the House with bipartisan support last week. Although the bills received Republican votes, several House GOP members raised concerns that the efforts don’t go far enough in backfilling recession-era budget cuts, or giving school districts more control over financial and transparency matters. The bills passed the House on April 1o, with lawmakers first giving overwhelming bipartisan support to the Student Success Act. The bill would provide $20 million aimed at helping kids meet mandated third-grade reading standards and adds $13 million in funding for charter school facilities. The bill also incorporates $40 million in retail marijuana revenue that will go toward school construction in rural parts of the state. The legislation will also provide
schools with $110 million of the money that was stripped away by the Legislature during lean budget years. “(The bill) begins the process of rebuilding K-12 funding that was struck hard during the past five years of Colorado’s recession, within the parameters of our current state budget,” said Rep. Millie Hamner, D-Dillon, a bill sponsor. The House also passed the annual School Finance act. The bill increases per-pupil funding by 2.8 percent; funds an additional 5,000 seats for preschool and full-day kindergarten programs; and pumps $30 million into English language learning programs. The House passed the Student Success Act on a 51-14 vote and the School Finance Act by a vote of 3926. Lawmakers who voted against the bills were Republicans. House Republicans tried pulling money from reading and early childhood education programs, so that school districts could have greater flexibility in how the funds are spent, with few strings attached. “The school districts said, ‘Give us the money with no strings attached. Give us the money to decide how to use it ourselves,’ “ said House Minority Leader Brian DelGrosso, R-Love-
land, during the School Finance Act debate. The Republican efforts failed, with members from the majority party arguing that it’s wrong to strip funding from the programs that need it. “Yes, every school district wants their money, but you and I are responsible about the future of Colorado,” said Rep. Sue Schafer, D-Wheat Ridge. Republicans also spent a great deal of time arguing against a Democratsponsored amendment aimed at providing greater transparency over how school districts are spending state dollars. Republicans offered a softer transparency amendment, out of concern that Democrats were burdening school districts with too many requirements. That effort failed. Rep. Carole Murray, R-Castle Rock, a Student Success Act bill sponsor, was one of two Republicans to vote for the School Finance Act and the only one to vote for both school-funding bills. Murray told her Republican colleagues that she understands their concerns on those issues, but that she and others worked hard to “come up with the best possible bill we can.” “This is an amazing product that we have all been part of together,” Murray said.

Candidates sound off at Republican forum Gubernatorial, Senate, House hopefuls lay out plans, goals By Hannah Garcia
firstname.lastname@example.org Former state Sen. Mike Kopp posed a question that largely encapsulates the Republican attitude going into gubernatorial and congressional elections later this year. “Are you better off than you were seven years ago?” Kopp asked a room full of assembly delegates at the Philip S. Miller Library in Castle Rock on April 9. The forum featured Republican candidates for governor, U.S. Senate and the 4th Congressional District. The event was hosted by the Douglas County Republican Women and moderated by state Sen. Mark Scheffel, whose district encompasses Parker, Castle Rock and Franktown in its span across much of Douglas County. Government overreach and faith in the free market were common themes with candidates, covering topics ranging from Obamacare to the economy to energy resources, as they all spoke of plans to return the state to a conservative agenda. On the topic of fracking, gubernatorial candidate Greg Brophy, a farmer from eastern Colorado, said he wanted the state to “frack our way to freedom” and that he would “indict Hickenlooper on his record” if he wins
the Republican primary. Roni Bell Sylvester, a rancher from Weld County, said she was “100 percent for fracking,” calling it a safe energy investment. “I’m a big advocate for using domestic energy resources, period,” she said. Sylvester also preached the need to cut down government interference with the water supply. Kopp, along with Brophy and businessman Steve House, called for more water storage in the state. Gov. John Hickenlooper’s administration imposed new rules in February that will make Colorado the first state to impose regulations designed to detect and reduce climate-harming methane emissions and puts in place other measures aimed at protecting the state’s air, although the governor has publicly expressed support for hydraulic fracturing, or fracking. When asked about public education, Colorado Secretary of State Scott Gessler, who is also running for governor, said the state needs “someone who is willing to take down the teachers’ unions.” “Unions should not control our schools,” Gessler said. “Parents and local government should.” That theme carried over to statements from senatorial candidates. Randy Baumgardner, currently serving in the Colorado House of Representatives, said that government agencies are “out of control” and that the federal government “has no place in your

Photo by Hannah Garcia lives, dictating what they’re teaching your kids.” Fellow senatorial candidate Tom Janich said the federal government should “get rid of all welfare” programs. “If there is no welfare, Americans will have to get up and work,” Janich said. Both said they would funnel more funds into military expenditures and work to repeal Obamacare. Janich called the bill “a 1,000-page train wreck.” Baumgardner railed against the state exchanges implemented under the Affordable Care Act, claiming insurance customers should be able to purchase coverage from any company in any state offering a lower price. On corporate taxes, congressional candidate and state Sen. Scott Renfroe complained about a mounting federal deficit, saying he would push more funds to the state level and seek to lower corporate tax rates. “(When you’re in business), you worry about what the next hoop will be,” Renfroe said. “If those are done away with, businesses will invest.” Steve Laffey, a former Republican mayor of Cranston, R.I., who is also running for Con-

delegate vote. Gessler’s speech included plenty of red meat for the conservative crowd. He touted his pro-life stance and conservative economic principles. He also called on Republicans to stand up to Democrats and push back against the rival party’s agenda. “I am tired of weak-kneed Republicans who think that every Democratic attack spells disaster,” Gessler said. “They roll over instead of standing up.” Kopp and Gessler will join former Congressman Tom Tancredo on the ballot this fall. Tancredo skipped the assembly nominating process, instead opting to gain ballot entry through a petition, which he has done. Candidates can either seek a ballot spot through the delegate process or by submitting enough signatures to gain ballot entry. Former Congressman Bob Beauprez — who lost a governor’s race to Bill Ritter in 2006 — is also attempting to petition on to the ballot. Those who sought ballot placement through the assembly needed at least 30 percent of the delegate vote. That didn’t happen for three other gubernatorial candidates, including state Sen. Mike Brophy of Wray, who garnered just 19 percent of the vote.
Gardner prevails in Senate race
Meanwhile, Gardner emerged as the overwhelming favorite among delegates to challenge Udall this fall. By carrying 73 percent of the vote, Gardner ensured that he would have no primary opposition. Gardner — who is regarded as a rising star in GOP politics — is seen among Republicans both here and at the national
gress, called for a “new, fair tax” and indicated that he would not work for earmarks to fund state projects. “This is what I do, let me in the arena,” he said, claiming he knew how to “fix” the federal budget. “If you want someone to bring back the bacon, that’s not me.” Fellow candidate Barbara Kirkmeyer, a Weld County commissioner, called for cuts to departments like the EPA and agreed with Laffey about the need for a new tax structure. “Departments like the EPA like to put all these regulation on our businesses so they can’t survive and that should stop,” she said. Also from Weld County, district attorney and CD 4 candidate Ken Buck said the federal government has “far overreached” with the deficit and unfunded liabilities. “If we don’t address these issues, we won’t be able to fix them,” Buck said, speaking of the need to make cuts to programs like Social Security and Medicaid. “They’re painful answers, but they are necessary.” The Republican state assembly took place April 12, where candidates vied for a spot on the primary ballot. The primary is scheduled for June 24 and the general election is Nov. 4.
level as the party’s best shot at picking up a U.S. Senate seat. Gardner has been highly critical of the Affordable Care Act, President Obama’s signature legislative achievement. In his speech to delegates, Gardner blasted ObamaCare as the “biggest and worst government boondoggle in American history,” and attempted to tie Udall to the Democratic president. “The president has made our biggest problems worse and our greatest assets weaker,” said Gardner, who will give up his post as the representative for the 4th Congressional District. “And Mark Udall was just along for the ride.” Those failing to collect the necessary 30 percent of the delegate vote included state Sen. Randy Baumgardner of Hot Sulphur Springs, who garnered just 23.8 percent of delegate support. An open Attorney General seat will feature a GOP primary battle between Deputy Attorney General Cynthia Coffman and state Rep. Mark Waller, of Colorado Springs. Coffman will earn the ballot’s top line after earning 69.3 percent of the vote among delegates. Waller eked out a ballot spot, with 30.7 percent of the vote. Whoever emerges from the GOP primary will take on the Democratic AG candidate, former Adams County District Attorney Don Quick. As for the Secretary of State’s race, El Paso County Clerk Wayne Williams was nominated by acclamation as the GOP nominee for Gessler’s vacated seat. Williams did not face opposition for the nomination and is expected to square off against Democrat Joe Neguse this fall. The Democrats held their own assembly in Denver the same day. However, there were no questions going into the assembly who their candidates would be. Hickenlooper, Udall, Quick and Neguse all were officially nominated at the Democratic State Assembly.

Bill sponsor hangs up on cell phone effort, for now Measure hits obstacles, but likely to return next year By Vic Vela
email@example.com An effort to revive a bill that sought to restrict most uses of cell phones while driving has failed to move forward. However, the bill will be studied by a special committee over the summer. And the bill sponsor said he intends to introduce the legislation again next year. The bill would have required drivers to use hands-free cell phone devices and would have put penalties in place in an effort to keep motorists from being distracted by their phones. Last month, the bill, sponsored by Rep. Jovan Melton, D-Aurora, failed to receive enough support to clear a House committee. But the committee gave Melton the option to bring back the bill. Melton intended to present another version of the bill to the same House Transportation and Energy Committee on April 10, but instead decided to push the effort back a year because of procedural barriers. “Basically, we can’t make changes because we’ve already gone through that piece of the bill,” Melton said. The revived effort occurred too late in the calendar for the bill to be reconsidered for changes to parts of the legislation on which the committee had already ruled. Melton said that the bill changes sought to address committee members’ concerns that caused the effort to
fail in the first place. The original bill would have created a “primary offense” for motorists who use their cell phones while driving through school zones and construction areas, meaning police could have imposed a citation for the mere act of being on the phone. Everywhere else, the violation would have been considered 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. Because some committee members questioned whether a primary offense law would have led to enforcement challenges for police, Melton decided to make all violations a secondary offense, a change that he said earned the support of the Colorado State Patrol. Committee members also wondered whether there was enough teeth in the bill. For that, Melton had intended to set the maximum fines for violations at $100 for the first offense and $200 for the second — doubling the bill’s original intent. But there were other logistical issues to deal with, such as clarifying what types of hands-free devices drivers would be allowed to use and the extent to which they can use phone applications. “The bill didn’t die because people didn’t disagree with the policy,” Melton said. “It died because people didn’t quite agree how we’re getting to the solution. I feel like we found the right solution but unfortunately, because of procedure, we can’t make the necessary changes.” The bill will get special attention over the summer by the Transportation Legislative Review Committee, which looks at legislation in depth without the deadlines that bills face during a legislative session.
“We have a much better chance of getting a good bill out that has an effect going through the TLRC,” said Rep. Max Tyler, D-Lakewood, the committee chairman. Melton said he is looking forward to reviving the effort next year. “After the bill died, I got a number of emails and phone calls from people all over the state saying, ‘Please don’t give up on this issue; this is truly about public safety,’ ” Melton said.

right. Spending $50,000 to restore a constitutional right seems like a cheap cost to me.” Siegfried Guentensberger, who organized the referendum with fellow resident Jacob Vargish, suggested to council that they consider rescinding their January decision and then make a motion to place the issue on the November ballot so that the town wouldn’t incur the $50,000 price tag for a special election — which according to a timeline determined by state statute, needs to take place by midSeptember. “I’m a little disappointed,” he said. “I would’ve hoped they would’ve looked at saving the town additional resources. But, ultimately, I’m pleased this is going to the voters. “In a perfect world the council would have decided on the second

Erlidawn Roy, who is Ojibwa, Pueblo and Meskwaki, also danced for the crowd. She has been teaching others about her culture since she was in middle school. “I was the only native in school, so I started giving cultural awareness lessons to my peers,” she said. “I was going to powwows every weekend and was always tired on Mondays at school, so I felt I needed to explain why.” Whiting focused much of his energy with the scouts on emphasizing the need to care for Mother Earth. “It is our duty to watch out for her,” he said. “Use everything she gives you, but don’t take more than you need. She doesn’t need us, but we need her.” Whiting talked of how when an animal is killed for food none gets wasted. He pointed to the bones and feathers that made up his regalia and said those are examples of how different pieces get reused and how that animal gets honored. “Some day I won’t be able to dance anymore,” said Robert Ironshield, a 45-yearold Hunkpapa Lakota who has drummed and sang his whole life and danced since he was 16. “I dance for people who can’t dance anymore.”
Challenging the petition A protest challenging the validity of the petition organized by residents Jacob Vargish and Siegfried Guentensberger was filed with the town April 7. After reviewing the protest, Castle Rock Town Clerk Sally Misare deemed it invalid, stating that it did not comply with statutory requirements. As there were no valid petitions filed within the allotted protest period, council was required by state statute to either rescind its January decision or set the issue to a public vote. Part of the reason the protest was not accepted was because it was not signed by any electors of the Town of Castle Rock, but was anonymous. Attorney Shawn Mitchell, of Broomfield, spoke at the April 14 meeting on behalf of those who protested and expressed disdain that they were not given the opportunity to fix their error. He said the reason no one signed the protest, was because those involved with the protest had been threatened and intimidated by the petitioners. Whether an appeal will be filed in regard to the protest being deemed invalid, Mitchell said after the meeting, will be decided within a couple weeks. “If this is going to the vote of the citizens, that might be a more definitive resolution than lengthy litigation action,” he said, stating that the cost of an appeal would also be weighed and that it could cost his clients more than the $50,000 it would cost the town to go through the process of an appeal. According to Misare, any appeal must be filed with the courts not the town.

the possibility of adding other nonTABOR ballot questions to the ballot. According to Town Manager Mark Stevens, because of the state statute timelines, the election is likely to be slated for one of the first three Tuesdays in August.

Republican school-board backers reconsider support GOP activists reach out to longtime critics By Jane Reuter
firstname.lastname@example.org Key members of the local Republican Party who supported current Douglas County School Board members during their campaigns say they’ll demand better behavior from board members. “I expect transparency,” said David DiCarlo, who resigned from the District Accountability Committee in the wake of recent board decisions. “If I don’t get it, I will have a problem mobilizing for these people in two years. I will have a problem putting the support, effort and energy to help somebody who has silenced myself, silenced my neighbors, silenced the community at large.” DiCarlo, a district captain with the Douglas County Republicans, and Dave Gill, another district captain who interviewed potential board candidates for the contentious 2013 election, met April 10 with a group of people who have long expressed frustration with the board’s actions. Two recent board actions — the imposition of a tight time limit on public comment and the process used to appoint a
new board member — brought about 15 people who once stood on opposite sides of the fence not only to the same room at the Castle Rock library, but the same philosophical page. Gill and DiCarlo promised to put pressure on the board to reverse its limits on public comment and to limit the amount of time it spends in executive session. If it doesn’t do so, DiCarlo suggested current board members might not receive the same level of support during the 2015 elections — when three of the seven board terms expire — as they have in the last three elections. The Douglas County Republicans have successfully endorsed winning school board candidates since 2009. But DiCarlo said there is growing unrest within the party about the board. “It’s not just the two of us,” DiCarlo said of himself and Gill. “It is a broad and wide group that are going, `Seriously!’ “There will be phone calls made. There will be pressure applied. We can arrange that.” Others who have voiced concerns about the board for years expressed doubt, saying they have tried and failed to bring about similar change. “I think the board has behaved abominably for years,” said Laura Welch, a board member with Douglas County Parents. “We need them to acknowledge the
parent voice. We’ve all been trying a long time.” But Gill said the two sides banding together sends a new message. “What happens if this disparate group comes together with a meaningful suggestion to them of how they reshape their communications?” he said. “They can blow you off. They can blow me off. But if we come together, they have to listen.” The two-hour-plus meeting, which drew people who have filed suit against the board, former board member candidates, union members, teachers and members of various district committees, was not always peaceful. A former teacher shouted in frustration, and disagreements arose around the local Republicans’ involvement in the board elections and around the December 2013 finding that the Douglas County School District violated the state’s Fair Campaign Practices Act. Dave Usecheck, a member of DCSD’s fiscal oversight committee, said criticizing the board isn’t likely to produce the changes desired. “We need to stop the blame game,” he said. “If I was them, I would shut you down too. You need to find commonalities.” Threaded among the repeated disagreements, meeting attendants repeatedly found agreement. They discussed
their hoped-for restoration of a position for a second attorney to specifically represent the interests of the district, a change in information distributed by the communications department, and concern about unified decision-making between the superintendent and board. Gill said he believes the first steps toward bridging the divide must be taken outside the board room. “I think to open the doors it’s going to have to be a private discussion first because we’ve got to sell an idea,” he said. “We’re not going to do that when an atmosphere has been poisoned.” Cindy Barnard, a longtime board critic, expressed optimism about the April 10 meeting, but said she preferred such discussions be held in public. “It would appear (you’re) the Republican operative, Mr. Gill, if it’s done behind closed doors,” she said. DiCarlo noted the April 10 meeting would have been inconceivable four months ago. “The board behaviors have led to this meeting,” he said. “We’ve taken a step tonight by having people that would normally be in their little enclaves and talking. We’ve humanized each other. “I’m a reformer. I will always be a reformer. We can work against each other. (But) if done right and in a way that makes sense, reasonability should rule the day.”

Sacrifice can feel good all over Fasting is not supposed to feel good and for those giving something up during Lent, don’t quit now, there are only a few more days. According to Christianity.About.com, not all Christian churches observe Lent. Lent is mostly observed by the Lutheran, Methodist, Presbyterian and Anglican denominations and also by Roman Catholics. Eastern Orthodox churches observe Lent or Great Lent, during the six weeks or 40 days preceding Palm Sunday with fasting continuing during the Holy Week of Orthodox Easter. Lent for Eastern Orthodox churches begins on Monday (called Clean Monday) and Ash Wednesday is not observed. The Bible does not mention the custom of Lent, however, the practice of repentance and mourning in ashes is found throughout the Holy Scriptures. This year for Lent, I gave up carbohydrates, not just sweets. So as much as I enjoy potatoes, pasta and bread, they were out of my diet for the whole time and I did miss them. Some nights I just wanted a scoop of ice cream and the thought of sacrificing something seemed totally unnecessary.
“I worked hard today and don’t ask for much. Don’t I deserve a little treat here at the end of the day?” That thought process made perfect sense to me. But as I used a little will power to do something that probably was good for me anyway, I began to lose weight and feel better. I recognize that my discipline was minimal compared to our Wounded Warriors or faithful spouses of a sick husband or wife or devoted parents of a troubled or addicted child. My little “saying no” was part of a spiritual discipline to help me take a more thoughtful approach to the events of Holy Week and build up my anticipation and appreciation for the celebration of Jesus’ resurrection from the dead and victory
over death on Easter morning. Observing a Lenten fast, my discoveries as a Hospice Chaplain and enduring a challenging chapter of life converged to reveal the value of facing negative emotions and experiencing the questions and pain that are present in life. For most of my life I have avoided and denied negative emotions and did almost anything I could to experience feel good emotionally. But that leads to an overall superficiality and a lack of profound compassion. Jerry Sittser in his book, “A Grace Disguised: How the Soul Grows through Loss,” writes, “The soul is elastic, like a balloon. It can grow larger through suffering.” Grief counselors guide people through, not around the pain that comes from loss. There will be services in many churches around town on the Thursday and Friday before Easter. Friday, known as Good Friday, recognizes the historical event of the crucifixion of Jesus. The night before that was the Last Supper with the disciples, a washing of feet and the betrayal. It is my honor to speak to this event at the church I attend, Greenwood Community Church, on Thursday.
The first Maundy Thursday was an evening filled with perplexing revelations, excruciating tasks and a shocking turn of events. The Passover moon lit the garden but darkness permeated the events and emotions of the Sacrificial Lamb and his frightened followers. Healthy emotional life and a salvation experience requires the dark and demented emotions of that night. It doesn’t make sense. Words fail us. Our thoughts swirl in confusion looking for an answer. For that time we feel alone, unanswered, even betrayed by God. But it is a dark night of the soul we must travel through. It won’t feel good and it is not supposed to, but we will be more authentic in our emotions and wise in our approach to God and life. Then Resurrection celebration will be mature because the joy of our soul will have experienced the reality our need and pain and that will feel good.

letters to the editor Bravo Judi reynolds
Your choice: Live it up or give it up If you can hear it or see it, flee it or at least take cover. That’s what we are told about lightning, right? But let’s pretend we saw it and heard it in the distance as we were on a hike in somewhat of a remote wilderness and mountainous area. We saw the collectiveness of darkness in the clouds, saw the brilliant flashes of lightning, felt the wind trailing away from us, and everything seemed like it was OK to continue forward as we were following the storm, not really in its path. And then, just as we are feeling safe enough to forge ahead in our hike as we see the storm in the distance moving farther and farther away from us, we failed to recognize the storm that was following directly behind us. By the time the lightning strike hits close enough, the concussive power of the strike is enough to knock us to the ground in an instant. This is exactly what happened to a friend of mine Alan, an accomplished hiker and someone who keeps himself in great shape. He was hiking alone, camping overnight, and along his way to complete his journey when he was knocked to the ground by a lightning strike that hit too close to home. Alan broke his shoulder during the fall, then managed to make his way out to an area where his phone and equipment would allow him to communicate with his family and
Kudos to Douglas County School District Board of Education Director Judi Reynolds for taking the initiative to draft a policy to standardize and make more transparent the school board director appointment process. During candidate interviews for District F Director the BOE seemed to be “winging it,” and following final interviews also failed to publicly discuss their criteria for selecting the candidate they appointed. This leaves one to wonder if any thoughtful criteria informed the process. Given the obviously pro-board choice made, it appears that the better representation of the broader community that many have been clamoring for was not one of them. Of particular note was director James Geddes’ comment regarding what apparently were his own criteria: “I voted for the guy I thought would be most in line with my philosophy on things.” His philosophy? Let us hope the good director misspoke, as to the extent his comment suggests that the primary criteria for selection should be that the candidate is willing to walk in lock-step with one’s own “philosophy” (regarding what “things”? So-called reform?), this raises serious concerns. It suggests a fundamental, and in our democratic society, unacceptable misun-
derstanding of the public school board of education mandate that the board act in good faith as representatives of the local community, even those who don’t necessarily support reform. In view of the long-standing controversy regarding BOE governance style (among other things), it seems likely Dr. Geddes is not alone in that misunderstanding. Certainly the selection that evening — by a 4 to 2 margin with directors Reynolds and Meghann Silverthorn voting against — of self-avowed “reform” enthusiast Rich Robbins (the first and only candidate nominated), would seem to suggest that. If so, Ms. Reynolds might be wise to take these concerns to heart as well when developing her policy draft. Sheldon J. Potter Highlands Ranch
Missed point in rebuttal
In an April 3 rebuttal to my recent letter printed March 27, I feel the point of my initial letter was missed.

This 70-percent contains former parents, Letters continues on Page 11

search crew. Alan’s story is amazing, but what amazed me most was meeting him in the gym and watching him working out and finding out that he still climbs 14ers here in Colorado and spends time distance running and keeping in shape. And all of this within months of having shoulder surgery. Here’s my point … when lightning strikes you or near you, what happens? And if you get knocked down, do you get right back on your journey or do you get discouraged and give up? Maybe your lightning comes in the form of a lost job, broken relationship, missed opportunity, or any other such lightning-like event. Maybe your lightning is a positive thing like winning the lottery or achieving an unexpected level of success. Either way, does it knock you to the ground or elevate you to a new position in life that someNorton continues on Page 11

Bonds are mixed bag, but important Bonds are an oxymoron as they have many conflicting parts. Investors have typically used bonds in the past for ways to provide a relatively stable stream of income, usually in retirement years. They can also be used as a hedge against other investments, such as stocks or real estate, in a diversified portfolio. But bonds have been getting a bad rap after last year’s losses, based on concerns of rising interest rates. This is part of what makes bonds contradictory and confusing — because they often work opposite of a stock or equity investment. Some investors never truly understand the workings of a bond and therefore have a hard time knowing what to expect from this type of a fixed-income vehicle. A bond is basically a loan or an IOU issued by a corporation or government entity. These are usually issued to raise money. When you purchase a bond, you are giving the issuer your money to use and they will pay you interest in return. Bonds are usually issued for certain periods of time or terms, such as 10, 20 or 30 years. The longer the term, the more vulner-
able you are that interest rates will change over that period of time, and perhaps you could have gotten a better deal with another issuer when interest rates rise. Therefore the value of a bond declines when interest rates rise. This can be due to the fact that your bond is now worth less when you go to sell it because it is still paying last year’s interest rate. If you are seeking a more competitive interest rate, then so will the next buyer want that higher rate as well. Therefore, to unload the bond in a rising interest rate environment, you could end up taking less than full value to get rid of it.
Investors hold bonds for two main reasons: to provide income and to provide a hedge against equity based investing. Since a bond is a debt instrument, it has the potential to behave opposite of an equity or stock investment. One main reason this occurs is when there is economic growth, stocks can rise in value along with growing consumerism. When the economy expands due to more spending, interest rates start to rise along with potential inflation and growth. When rates increase, the value of the bond declines, which leaves the bond holder with a lower market value. Therefore, this can be a good diversifier in a portfolio of stocks when there is a stock market correction; some bonds have the potential to increaseor act opposite. The last few years of painfully low interest rates have many bond investors frustrated. They are not getting the yields they are used to and the concern is that when rates do finally rise, their bond values will fall. However, the first few months of 2014 proved this theory wrong. When stocks tumbled, bonds started to recover.
This shows that diversified portfolios that hold non-correlated instruments are very important in your portfolio. If interest rates rise gradually, and at the same time there is moderate and increasing growth in the economy, then bonds could still fare quite well. The shorter duration is less risky and adding other types of equities and alternatives to your portfolio will help keep you balanced. This is a good time to review your accounts with your advisor to determine how much fixed income you need to be represented by bonds and in what duration and yield.

So I came up with The Lo-Cator, an alarm that would have a light that blinked when the battery needed to be replaced. I looked into a patent, and received the paperwork from the U.S. Patent Office. I had the idea but I didn’t have the specifications or a diagram, nothing. So I contacted one of those invention outfits that will take your idea and fill in the blanks and come up with specs and even an ad campaign, with targeted outlets, from print to late-night television.

I conceded that I was in over my head, and shut it all down. The invention company, however, did not want to let me go, and I received daily phone calls and emails. If I had the money back then, you would probably have a half-dozen LoCators in your home right now. It was not one of the brightest periods of my life.

Walk to help premature babies By Jane Reuter
firstname.lastname@example.org When Sara Walla went into labor six weeks shy of her due date in February, 2009, she feared the worst. “When I checked into Sky Ridge, I was terrified of what would happen,” said the Highlands Ranch mother of two. “I knew it was too early to have my baby.” Avery, now a healthy 5-year-old, was in the neonatal intensive care for three weeks. “She wasn’t strong enough to nurse,” Walla said. “Her lungs were every underdeveloped. It really makes you think about what a miracle life is, and how easily something can go wrong.” Tamera Martin, who delivered her son 35 and a-half weeks into her pregnancy, was equally afraid. At 15, her son shows no evidence of his rough start. “My baby is 6-foot, 4 and a-half now,” she said. “But he was a very sick baby.” Those near tragedies changed both women’s lives. Walla is now the communications director for March of Dimes Colorado. Her experience at Sky Ridge’s NICU led her to that position, in which she helps
to educate women about the advantages of full-term delivery. Martin, meanwhile, is the nurse manager at Sky Ridge Medical Center’s neonatal intensive care unit, and said her experience made her a more effective in her job. “It gave me such a different bedside manner because I know what it’s like,” she said. One in 10 Colorado babies are born prematurely, and for every healthy Avery, there are many more who suffer chronic effects that can run the gamut from cognitive difficulties to vision and hearing problems. At 10 a.m. April 26, the March of Dimes hosts a three-mile March for Babies walk at Denver’s City Park. The event, sponsored by Sky Ridge and others, helps raise funds to support prenatal wellness programs, family support and advocacy for healthy babies. Walla said March of Dimes has been working for years to reverse the oncecommon trend of early labor induction. In 2012, 326 of the 3,442 babies born in Douglas County were born prematurely. The approximate cost to treat those babies was $17.9 million, according to March of Dimes Colorado. Sky Ridge’s expansion is aimed at part

What’s inside that egg? Plastic eggs littered nearly every square inch of Butterfield Park before the April 11 Eggstravaganza in Castle Rock got underway. It didn’t take long, however, for the excited youngsters present to scoop up every colorful treasure around. When eggs weren’t being collected, kids were busy hanging out with the Easter Bunny, riding the kiddie train, partaking in JELLO-egg eating contests and taking turns on an inflatable slide.

Lone Tree schedule announced
The Lone Tree Arts Center unveiled its 2014-15 season on April 7 and it will include more than 50 different productions in its fourth season. LTAC will continue to produce its own theatrical series, Guys and Dolls in Concert, Home for the Holidays and The 39 Steps. These three shows follow in the footsteps of such successful productions as Hank Williams: Lost Highway and Sylvia. The balance of the season (which starts Oct. 22-26 with the Guys and Dolls Concert) features national and international touring groups as well as outstanding regional performing organizations such as Wonderbound, Buntport Theatre, and the Colorado Symphony. Perhaps the biggest coup for the LTAC will be the performance by international opera star Nathan Gunn, who will give an intimate recital in the 500-seat venue. “Our rapidly growing audiences are hungry for a wide range of culture and entertainment and the 2014-15 season features a very full plate of offerings Parker continues on Page 19

He not only turned the tables, he turned over tables. If you are ready to experience an UNEXPECTED Jesus who split calendars in half, then don’t miss Easter Sunday.

imagination. On April 9, they stocked the single shelf of the Little Free Library, officially opening the tiny branch of a global system. The weather-tight wooden box, which features a Plexiglas window that offers a peek at the titles it contains, is erected on a post along a sidewalk in Metzler Ranch Community Park. “You can take a book and leave a book, so others can enjoy them as well,” said student Ellie DeBeer. “It helps make the world a better place.” “If someone’s sitting on a bench in the park and sees it, I’m hoping it will inspire kids and even adults to read,” said student Summer Offenhartz. The Little Free Library operates on the honor system. Unlike the traditional library, borrowing a book doesn’t require a library card, and there are no specified due dates or fines. While students are committed to monitoring, restocking and changing the books secured in the box, they invite community members to not only borrow books, but add their own. They plan to install collection bins in several Castle Rock locations to help the collection grow. Students stocked the Little Free Library with a variety of books, including fiction and nonfiction titles and children’s and adults’ books. “The special thing about the Little Free Library is it’s books for all ages; it’s not just for kids,” said student Lila Massan. Librarian Diana Hyland, who spearheaded the effort, said the students instantly jumped on board. “There was no hesitation,” she said. “This was something they believed in.” So did Principal Deborah Lemmer, who sprang for the $400 cost of the Little Free Library container. The Town of Castle Rock’s Parks and Recreation department donated and erected the post on which it stands, making it a community project. The Little Free Library started in Wisconsin in 2009 when a man built a model of a one-room schoolhouse and filled it with books as a tribute to his mother. It has since

Colorado tippers among best
Colorado again fared well in a study of tippers. In an analysis of tips by customers of the GrubHub delivery service, for the year from March 28, 2013, to March 27, 2014, Colorado (15.7 percent) finished third among the states, behind South Carolina (16.1) and New Hampshire (16).
And the most generous cities in the survey were all from Colorado. Boulder tipped 16.2 percent on average, Denver at 15.7 percent and Fort Collins at 15.4 percent. It’s unclear why the Centennial State cities are so nice to the delivery person. “We have no idea why that is, but a hat tip to Colorado diners for their generosity,” company spokeswoman Allie Mack said.

Science teacher gets national nod Rock Canyon educator takes kids past limits By Jane Reuter
firstname.lastname@example.org Shawndra Fordham refuses to set limits for her students or herself. That’s likely the attitude that earned her third place among hundreds vying for a coveted national science teachers’ award. The Rock Canyon High School biology and biotechnology teacher was among the top three contenders for the Shell Science
Teaching Award, which recognizes one K-12 teacher nationwide for exemplary classroom science instruction. “We do a lot of really innovative things here at Rock Canyon,” said Fordham, a 2013 Douglas County School District Apple Award winner. “We’ve done some high-level labs I’ve been told you can’t do with high school kids. And I refused to believe that.” One of those labs, now in its third year, has become a regular part of Fordham’s instruction. Students shut off a gene in a microscopic worm, and by assessing the resulting mutation, determine the gene’s pur-
pose. “That’s a senior-level lab in a lot of universities and college,” Fordham said. “I want them to do the highest level, coolest stuff, so that we can get them really excited. Fordham “We inevitably fail at something every year because we’re doing such hard science. But they get so much from that too. I teach them to take a risk, be willing to fail, because maybe something will work and how amazing would that be?”
Fordham has influenced hundreds of RCHS students since she began teaching there in 2004, just one year after the Highlands Ranch high school opened. While she didn’t earn the $10,000 top prize, her third-place finish did come with a free trip to the National Science Teachers’ Association Conference in Boston that provided fresh inspiration for her work. “The kids in the biotech program here (at RCHS) are at such a high level,” she said. “To find other biotech programs that are teaching at the level we are can be really difficult. But they had so much there. I came home with so many ideas for my classroom.”

Even your car is a robot.” Those efforts led to Ameribotics, founded by Menzer, winning the Douglas County School District Apple Award for 2014’s Community Partner. Menzer said he was “floored” by the accolade. “What an honor. I never thought it’d be possible,” he said. It’s a small space in Castle Rock, a unit next to an automotive shop, where students come to build robots from scratch, surrounded by spare parts and scrapped designs. “It’s definitely a fun experience,” said Menzer’s daughter Gillian, who is involved in the program. “It’s tough at first, getting used to the concept. It takes about a day.” “We’re always testing. If it doesn’t work, then change it,” she said. The organization focuses on educating students about the various components of robotics, ranging from engineering to programming. Menzer said his goal is to create a “robotics incubator,” a sort of hub in Colorado to churn out more students and entrepre-
neurs rooted in a tech-based education. To reach that goal, Ameribotics currently offers workshops through a Deep Space in Parker and summer camps in partnership with the Highlands Ranch Community Association, which is one of the largest parts of the program, Menzer said. The program isn’t short on projects, either. Menzer said he was contacted by a Denver-based physical therapist to help build a remote control wheel chair for a small girl with a muscle disease. This summer, Menzer wants to use funds from grants and a Kickstarter campaign to have students build an electronic car and then auction it off. “That’s the big difference. This is an authentic, real and relevant experience to the kids,” Menzer said. “It’s not a purely academic pursuit. They’ll take the pieces and parts and build something real.” Menzer said he wants to develop a program that focuses on the more entrepreneurial aspects like developing patents. The program is establishing a partnership with an IT firm so that participants in the program can apply for paid internships this summer. “We want to build an industry-based, business-oriented lab environment,” Menzer said. “These are the beginning steps to developing something tangible.” Menzer said the organization is still looking to build a larger lab somewhere in Douglas County, but for now, the small space in Castle Rock will still be the “home base.” “We would love to expand the program, but right now, this is what we have,” Menzer said. “It’s really about the end product, you know, what can I use in my kit or tool box to create something? It’s about solving problems.”

Judges and attorneys head back to school Students hear cases during state’s ‘Courts in the Community’ outreach By Jane Reuter
email@example.com At first glance, the drama played out on the Rock Canyon High School stage April 11 might have been mistaken for a high school play. But the judges attired in black robes, attorneys in dark suits and handlebar mustachioed bailiff were real — all part of the Colorado Court of Appeals’ community outreach program, “Courts in the Community.” The program brings the judicial work typically conducted in downtown Denver courtrooms to Colorado high schools. Hundreds of RCHS students watched three judges hear two separate cases and then followed that up with question-andanswer sessions with the judges and attorneys. One case centered on a Parker tree farm’s county-assigned tax status. The owner believes his property was improperly classified as residential, instead of its historic agricultural classification. The change increased the assessed value of the 34-acre Crowfoot Valley Road property by about $400,000, sharply increasing the owner’s property taxes. Coyle maintains the use hasn’t changed, and the property remains an active tree farm. The second case involved an Adams County man seeking a review on his 77-year prison sentence stemming from charges that included stalking, intimidating a witness, assault and violating a protection order. Students heard arguments on both sides and listened to questions from judges, but didn’t hear their decision on either case; those can take weeks to render. Students asked about careers in the judicial system, including cost of a law degree, workload and the availability of positions.

Attorney Jenny Campos, who works for the Colorado general attorney’s office, said her law degree left her with more than $100,000 in debt, and urged students to avoid starting their careers with similar financial burdens. Assistant county attorney Meredith Van Horn said workloads vary. “If you work for a nice, big firm, you basically live there,” she said. Another student asked the attorney what role their personal beliefs play in their work. “I’ve represented innocent people, wrongfully convicted, so I don’t make any personal judgments about the cases,” said defense attorney Normal Mueller. “I can have a client I might not like, and certainly a crime I might not like, but my job is to do that appeal and make sure there weren’t any mistakes made.” All three judges said their workload is heavy. “I read about 3,000 to 4,000 pages a month,” said Judge Dennis Graham. “The writing is something that continues on a day-to-day basis. Each of us has to go through many graphs of proposed opinions.” “A number of people told me the workload was like a fire hose that never got turned off,” Judge Michael Berger said. “That’s turned out to be true.” The somber morning ended with laughter when a student asked bailiff Matthew Skeen how long it takes him to style his moustache each day. A straight-faced Skeen said he sometimes leaves his facial hair unstyled and natural, and then displayed the handlebar moustache wax he said he saves for use on special occasions like a high school visit. Students gave the morning a unanimous positive verdict. “I thought it was really cool to see the actual process,” said junior Robert Falk. “It’s one of the things I’ve been looking into as a career.” “We’ve been conducting community court appearances for almost 30 years now,” Judge Graham said. “Without fail, every judge says it’s been highly rewarding.”

Huskies look to bounce back quick
Douglas County loses to top-ranked Grizzlies By Ryan Boldrey firstname.lastname@example.org Douglas County got off to a fast start on the diamond this spring, sprinting out to a 5-2 record. Yet even though the Huskies have dropped four straight since, coach Mark Roberts has every reason to believe
his team will turn it around, and quick. Two of those losses, a 13-0 hiccup against Regis Jesuit April 7 and a 7-3 loss to defending state champion ThunderRidge April 11, came against the top two ranked teams in Class 5A. The next four games for the Huskies (5-6, 0-3 Continental) all come against league foes that are also sitting around the .500 mark at the midway point this season, including an April 18 tilt across town at rival Castle View (4-6, 1-2). “A lot of it has been timely hitting, just baseball,” Roberts said after the Thun-
derRidge loss. “I was pleased with how we competed at the end today. In the sixth and seventh, we battled back and scratched out a couple runs. This team doesn’t quit and I’m proud of that.” Ask senior third baseman Austin Pitchford, who made a couple Gold Glove caliber plays against the No. 1 Grizzlies, and he will tell you one of the two main issues is that the team has struggled in the field of late. Against ThunderRidge that wasn’t an issue as the team committed zero errors and hung tough after falling behind 6-0.
“Obviously we want to win at the end of the day, but for how we’ve been playing lately it’s really an improvement,” he said. “I’d like this one back today, but if we just continue to clean it up in the field I think we can make a run. “We need to start hitting 1-9 in the lineup; everyone needs to start hitting better. That’s why we were so successful in our first few games of the season when we were killing teams, everyone was hitting.” One player who has consistently been Huskies continues on Page 24
Golden Eagles get best of Rock Canyon Mountain Vista wins rematch of 2013 state title game By Jim Benton
email@example.com It was a marquee match that left players and coaches talking about the past, present and future. Mountain Vista, the state’s No. 1-ranked girls soccer team, downed No. 2 Rock Canyon, 3-1, in a Continental League showdown between unbeaten teams April 8 at Shea Stadium. The last time the teams played was in the Class 5A state championship game last May at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park and the Golden Eagles triumphed 1-0 in overtime. Mountain Vista’s Megan Massey had flashbacks to the title game, super sophomore Mallory Pugh stepped up in time to help the Golden Eagles remain unbeaten and Rock Canyon coach Mat Henbest felt his team delivered a message for upcoming games. That message was delivered early as Rock Canyon controlled the play throughout the first half. The Jaguars had several chances to make the Golden Eagles play catch-up but just couldn’t convert their opportunities. Instead, Massey, the junior who scored the goal in the state championship game, took a pass from Amy Alexander and
pushed the Golden Eagles ahead 1-0 with a goal from 10 yards out with just under four minutes remaining in the first half. “Amy got it to me and it was just having composure in the box and not messing up,” said Massey. “I kind of had a flashback from last year. Once we finally put one in the net we got our momentum back and we finally had our chance to go for it more to be able to score more.” Pugh, who will be at the Olympic training center in Chula Vista, Calif. April 1320 for a camp with the USA U20 women’s team, made it 2-0 when she deposited a rebound into the goal less than four minutes into the second half as Mountain Vista started to show its offensive prowess. Kaycie Young, Rock Canyon’s standout senior and leading scorer, took advantage of some defensive miscommunication to pull the Jaguars within a goal but the speedy Pugh responded by icing the Mountain Vista win with a dazzling goal as she weaved between defenders and fired a shot past keeper Cameryn Yacks inside the left post following a spin move. “I felt like I was a little frustrated and I wanted to help my team out so I did whatever I could do and just kind of took it to the goal,” said Pugh who will also be at another national training camp session in May. “They were just playing real good soccer. They were playing one and two touch. Soccer continues on Page 24

We couldn’t really figure out how to effectively fix that. Once we did in the second half we came out really strong and did what we needed to do. “Every time we play Rock Canyon, it’s a huge game, it’s our biggest rival. They always give us a hard time. They are a really good team. I’m proud of my team for coming out and figuring out a way to beat them.”
fourth with a towering blast to right for his team-leading fifth homerun of the year. Minnick, who is hitting at a .387 clip this spring, also managed to fan 10 batters in his third start of the season on the mound. Two of those strikeouts came against San Diego State commit Brody Westmoreland, one of the most feared hitters in the state. “It’s a tough loss, but you take what you can get, little victories,” said Minnick, who has struck out 29 this spring after missing
almost all of last season after he strained the ulnar collateral ligament on his throwing arm. “He threw it well enough to win and he’s doing it offensively too,” Roberts said. “He’s having a good senior year, we are expecting a lot of out him. It was a tough week for us; we played the state champs from last year, and Regis on Monday who could very well win it this year. We’ve just got to build on that.”
The Huskies hope to be able to get that done with a balanced pitching staff led by Minnick, Taylor Williams (2-1, 2.14 ERAand Ryan Connolly (3-2, 2.13 ERA) as well as timely hitting provided by a team that has seven regulars hitting over .300 at the midpoint. JP Rubino is leading those regulars with a .464 average and 11 RBI, while Pitchford and Taylor Quintana were both hitting .389 heading into the week.
Mountain Vista coach Theresa Echtermeyer complimented the Jaguars’ game plan. “We definitely had more chances that our opponent,” she said. “It would have been nice if we would have put a couple of those earlier in the second half in. It was nice we kept so many on frame and their goalkeepers (Yacks and Julie Henning) both played very, very well and kept them in the game. “The first 20-25 minutes, they had the better play for sure. It took us a while to sort it out. … They had a good game plan and we had to make some adjustments. That
was obviously the best team we’ve played against and we hope they are on the other side of the bracket for the state tournament.’’ For the most part, Henbest liked how his team performed against Vista. “It was a very even game and at times we had the better of the play,” he said. “Mallory is a very special player. She creates goals that are very difficult for other teams to produce. I was very happy with the way we played. We battled them pretty even. We’re in good shape going towards playoffs, we keep improving and we were able to measure ourselves against the best team in the
state. We are pretty close. “The things that we wanted to do, possess the ball and move it around, we did that and we created opportunities, we just didn’t finish all of them. I came away with the sense that they know we are pretty good. … When we are playing our best, everybody is moving around and we’re tough to mark. Mountain Vista, playing without Pugh, tied Regis Jesuit 0-0 April 10, which left the Golden Eagles with a 5-0-1 Continental League record and at 8-0-1 overall. Rock Canyon slipped past Littleton, 1-0, April 10, improving to 4-1-0 in the league and 7-1-0 overall.

SALOME’S STARS FOR THE WEEK OF ApRil 14, 2014
ARIES (Mar 21 to Apr 19) professional relationships grow stronger. But you might still need to ease some problems with someone in your personal life. One way could be to try to be less rigid in your views. TAURUS (Apr 20 to May 20) You might be too close to that perplexing personal situation to even attempt to make a rational decision about it right now. Stepping back could help you gain a wider perspective. GEMINI (May 21 to Jun 20) Being asked to choose between the positions of two friends is an unfair imposition on you. it’s best to reject the “demands” and insist they try harder to work things out on their own.

LEO (Jul 23 to Aug 22) Romance once again looms large for single leos and leonas, with Cupid favoring Taurus and libra to inspire those warm and fuzzy leonine feelings. Expect another workplace change. VIRGO (Aug 23 to Sept 22) A surprise gift -- and, happily, with no strings attached -- could come just when you need it to avoid a delay in getting your project done. Expect education to dominate the week. LIBRA (Sept 23 to Oct 22) Someone close to you might ask for your support as she or he faces a demanding personal challenge. Offer it, by all means. But be careful you don’t neglect your own needs at this time. SCORPIO (Oct 23 to Nov 21) An unexpected development could put your relationship with a partner or spouse to an emotionally demanding test. But your determination to get to the truth should save the day. SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 to Dec 21) A recent agreement appears to be coming apart over the surfacing of unexpected complications. You might need to have expert advice on how to resolve the situation. CAPRICORN (Dec 22 to Jan 19) Your keen business sense helps you get to the truth about a suspicious business deal. Expect to have many colleagues rally to support your efforts in this important matter. AQUARIUS (Jan 20 to Feb 18) Someone who once moved in and out of your life through the years might now want to come back in on a more permanent basis. Give yourself a lot of time to weigh your decision. PISCES (Feb 19 to Mar 20) Showing frustration over a delayed workplace decision might get someone’s attention, but not necessarily make him or her move any sooner. Best advice would be to be patient and wait it out. BORN THIS WEEK: You are drawn to excitement and enjoy fast-tempo music, with the more brass, the better.. © 2014 King Features Synd., inc.

Annual Small Business Leadership Awards By Natalie Harden, South Metro Denver SBDC
Jim Saccomano, recently retired Broncos Vice President of Corporate Communications, will be accepting the South Metro Denver Chamber’s Lifetime Achievement Award on Wednesday, May 7th. The award will be presented by Joe Ellis, President of the Denver Broncos, at Comedy Works South during the 29th Annual Small Business Leadership Awards (SBLA). These awards recognize local businesses and community leaders for their outstanding achievements, and are hosted by the Chamber and South Metro Denver Small Business Development Center. The Lifetime Achievement Award is given to an individual who has made a major impact in the South Metro Denver business community. This accolade acknowledges a lifetime of contribution and achievement in one or more fields of endeavor; giving back to society on a regional, national or international level; being recognized within his/her community or field as a leader; and enriching the Denver community at large. Mr. Saccomano will be the inaugural recipient. Cleve Wortham, SBLA Committee Chair, Chamber Board member, and President of FirstBank - Arapahoe County commented on the award: “We are honored that Jim has graciously accepted the Lifetime Achievement Award from the South Metro Denver Chamber and the South Metro Denver Small Business Development Center, and that Joe Ellis, Broncos Team President will be making the presentation to Jim on May 7. The Denver Broncos have
made such a significant contribution, not only to the South Metro Denver business community, but to Metro Denver, the state of Colorado, and the entire Rocky Mountain region. Jim has been an integral part of this over the last five decades and we congratulate Jim on this award.” Saccomano is the longest-tenured pro sports administrator in Colorado history, having worked with the Denver Broncos for 36 years. During his tenure in 1990, the Denver Broncos moved their training facilities to the Dove Valley Business Park in Arapahoe County. This event made the organization an important part of the South Metro Denver community. The voice and memory of the franchise for many years, Saccomano has witnessed 876 Broncos games in person, his experience spanning nearly a half century. The first game was Denver’s 20-16 win against the New York Jets (which he saw as a fan) on Nov. 15, 1964. The most recent was Denver’s Super Bowl XLVIII game against the Seattle Seahawks (witnessed as an employee) on Feb. 2, 2014. Saccomano worked 27 Super Bowls—21 with the NFL’s public relations staff and six with the team, including back-to-back World Championships (1997-98). He has chaired the NFL’s media relations and international committees and has served on the league’s postseason, radio-television and special projects committees. He is currently serving as a consultant to the organization. He has received numerous awards throughout his career including the inaugural Pete Rozelle Award (1990), given annually to outstanding NFL public relations staff, and the Charlie Callahan Award for Public Relations. In 2010 he was recognized with a lifetime achievement award from the Order Sons of Italy in America Colorado Foundation. Saccomano graduated with honors from Metropolitan State University of Denver in 1970 and earned his master’s degree in journalism from University of Colorado Boulder in 1977. He was recently awarded an Honorary “C” from CU during halftime at a Buffalo’s football game on November 23, 2014 for his many contributions to his alma mater. During the 2013 season, the press box at Sports Authority Field at Mile High was officially named the Jim Saccomano Press Box. The author of four books about the Broncos, Saccomano worked three years with the Denver Bears, Denver’s minor league baseball team, prior to joining the Denver Broncos organization.
In addition to the Lifetime Achievement Award, three SBLA winners (Small Business of the Year, Emerging Business of the Year and Brian Vogt Community Leader of the Year) will be announced at the 29th Annual South Metro Denver Small Business Leadership Awards Event on Wednesday, May 7, 2014, from 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm at Comedy Works South in Greenwood Village. This event is open to the public. Pricing: $60/person or $100/couple for Chamber Investors; $75/person or $125/couple for nonInvestors. For more questions or to purchase tickets contact: Taren Shuck-Boehler 303-7950142 x235 or email@example.com.
