Elephant Rock draws 6,500 cyclists Director calls event the best in 27-year history By Jim Benton

jbenton @coloradocommunitymedia.com Cyclists surrounded Scot Harris on a warm morning at the Douglas County Fairgrounds in Castle Rock. The music was loud and the winds that regularly pound the area were light. Harris, the director of the Subaru Elephant Rock Cycling Festival, claimed the June 1 event was one of the best yet in its 27-year history, despite fewer riders. “This year it looks like (we had) about 6,500 riders which is kind of right in the range,” Harris said. “We’ve had as many as 7,800, and last year we were at 7,000. Although our numbers weren’t as big as they have been, this was absolutely the best. “We just wanted to do some things differently this year. Parking has always really been hard coming into the Events Center with just the one way in. We worked super hard to make that work better and it totally worked. We added an Italian lunch, we had live music this year and the weather was beautiful. There’s no question this was a really a good one if not best ever. It just wasn’t our biggest.” Cyclists had the option to ride 100-, 62-, or 32-mile courses or take on the 27-mile fat tire track and there was also an eight-mile course for families and a ride for kids. “It was not a race,” Harris said. “We try to create a course for cyclists of all ages and abilities. It has kind of become a little bit of an institution for the cycling community. Everybody kind of looks at it as the kickoff to the season. When we started the event that’s what we wanted. We wanted to have an early season training ride.

The trial of a Castle Rock man suspected of leading police on a car chase to his home and then firing shots at them during a standoff was ruled a mistrial May 27. Lonnie Pebley, 42, was arrested in July 2012 and faces 56 charges, including 18 counts of attempted first-degree murder of a peace officer. The mistrial was declared by Douglas County District Court Judge Paul King after a defense witPebley ness spoke of Pebley’s criminal history during cross-examination. “Obviously we were disappointed (in the outcome) so close to the end of the case,” District Attorney George Brauchler said. The witness was the last scheduled before what were to be the closing arguments of the case. “I’m firmly committed to due process,” Brauchler said. “If this was the step that Pebley continues on Page 13

Some of the first group of riders cross the finish line at the June 1 Elephant Rock Ride in Castle Rock. One of the riders that trekked the 62-mile course was Janet Rost of Greenwood Village. Rost, 60, had a liver transplant in May 2012 but participated in her second Elephant Rock Ride this year. She finished the 32-miler in 2013 and moved up to the 62-mile course this year. “Never in a million years did I think I would be doing this,” she said. “Two years ago I could hardly go to the grocery store. I could hardly walk to the mailbox to get my mail. I have always been pretty active as an adult but when my liver started failing, I couldn’t do anything. “A year after surgery I did the Elephant Rock. I was feeling so good and wanted to participate to raise money to help other transplant recipients and donors.” Others, such as Kurt Lausman of Westminster, use the race to prepare for a busy summer of biking and running races.

Military/police dogs are stolen Three German shepherds taken from Larkspur kennel Staff report

Alyna Waters of Louisville and her ride partner Isabelle, a poodle mix head off for one of the Elephant Rock rides together June 1. Waters was part of the American Transplant Foundation team of riders.

The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office is seeking the public’s help in locating two highly trained military/police “attack” dogs that were believed to be stolen from a private kennel the night of May 30 or the morning of May 31. Three “very valuable,” purebred German shepherds were reported stolen from Gunbil German shepherds in Larkspur, according to a sheriff’s office news release. It is believed the dogs were taken at some point between 10 p.m. and 5:30 a.m. One of the dogs was located by a homeowner in Palmer Lake on June 1. The dog was located inside the homeowner’s garage. The homeowner contacted the Palmer Lake Police Department, and the dog Dogs continues on Page 13

county’s survey finds satisfied residents Sustained support not typical, pollster says By Mike DiFerdinando

mdiferdinando @coloradocommunitymedia.com Residents continue to support Douglas County government, counter to trends seen elsewhere, said the head of a company that recently performed a survey paid for by the county. The survey found many residents believe the county has a plan for the future, with a particular focus on the use and preservation of natural resources such as water. Hill Research Consultants conducted the telephone survey of 600 registered voters in the county — 200 from each of the three commissioner districts — from April 3-7. Of those surveyed, 67 percent said they feel things are moving in the right direction for the county, while 20 percent said they are moving in the wrong direction. Twelve percent were not sure and 1 percent didn’t answer that question. Fifty-one percent of those polled said economic conditions are staying the same and 40 percent said things are getting better.

Only 7 percent said things were getting worse economically. “The general theme that I take away from the data is that there has been stability over time,” said David Hill of Hill Research Consultants. Hill said that while he has generally seen dissatisfaction grow among the people he surveys nationally about their local governments since 2007, Douglas County has actually shown more support during that time. When asked if Douglas County government listens to the people’s voice, 55 percent agreed and 11 percent strongly agreed, while 17 percent disagreed. When asked if Douglas County leaders have an effective long-term, comprehensive plan for the county’s future, 52 percent agreed and 11 percent strongly agreed, while 16 percent disagreed and 6 percent strongly disagreed. When asked if Douglas County spends tax dollars wisely, 54 percent agreed that they did and 10 percent strongly agreed, while 21 percent disagreed and 9 percent strongly disagreed. “Douglas County has shown remarkable stability in the face of a lot of negative things that have happened,” Hill said. District 3 Commissioner Jill Repella said she believes the community trusts the government’s plan for the future, because of-

Area graduates earn $65.5M in scholarships Staff report Douglas County School District’s Class of 2014 secured more than $65.5 million in scholarships; that includes scholarships to four students from the Boettcher Foundation. Scholarships awarded to graduating Douglas County seniors to date total $65,527,528. That averages out to nearly $16,321 in scholarship dollars per graduate. DCSD awarded 4,015 diplomas this year

to students at its nine regular high schools in Castle Rock, Highlands Ranch and Parker and three alternative high schools that include eDCSD, DC Oakes and Eagle Academy night school. Boettcher recipients including ThunderRidge’s Elisabeth Collins, Highlands Ranch students Paul Marchando and Francis Commercon and Castle View’s Madeline Walden were awarded full-ride, merit-based scholarships to attend a fouryear college or university within the State of Colorado.

ficials have set and met goals for improving the lives of their constituents consistently. “That’s extremely important for building trust,” Hill said. “That doesn’t exist everywhere.” He said the rotating nature of elected officials will often lead to a lack of long-term thinking and consistency. Repella pointed to “one question that we’re encouraged by in particular, and it’s Q41: Douglas county leaders have an effective long-term comprehensive plan for the county’s future. “In February 2000 it was 48 percent strongly agree and we’re up to 63 percent this year. That’s a significant incline that we’re in the right direction. “It seems as though the community trusts the direction that we’re going in,” she added, “and I truly believe that the significant jump that we’ve seen in the last four to six years is because we strategically have those goals in place and there’s some consistency in what we’ve been focusing on.” This year’s survey cost $36,984. Hill said the survey had a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points at the 95 percent confidence level for 50-50 splits. That means the pollster is 95 percent certain that the results are accurate within 4 percentage points either way, for a relatively varied population.

Water ranks high

One area where Douglas County has made progress over the years is in its longterm approach to natural resources, specifically water. Survey Respondents listed natural resources as their second highest priority for the county — after the economy — and 58 percent of people said water was the most important resource for the county. Of people surveyed, 63 percent strongly agreed and 32 percent somewhat agreed that Douglas County should work in partnership with water districts to secure a long-term water supply and delivery system. “Five years ago when we put our policy manual together and crafted those goals, those goals were very, very important and strategic,” Repella said. “Two of our highest goals were economic foundation and natural resources related to water. That was really a key area we were looking at in the survey to reconcile our citizens’ reaction to those efforts. The results of the survey not only support our efforts in that area, but I was surprised by how much they were encouraging our efforts in those areas. It was very, very positive. We’re on the right track with that.” Survey results are at www.douglas. co.us/commissioners/documents/2014citizen-survey-results.pdf.

Stampede gets ready to ride Rodeo, parade among events set for three-day weekend By Mike DiFerdinando

mdiferdinando@coloradocommunitymedia.com The Elizabeth Stampede Rodeo will provide a weekend of rodeo riding, mutton bustin’ and a parade. This will be the 50th year for the annual rodeo in Elizabeth. This year’s event is June 6-8 at Casey Jones Park. “We feel really honored that we’ve made it this many years and the rodeo is still going strong,” said Traci Swisher, Elizabeth Stampede Rodeo community relations chair. “We understand that it has taken 50 years of the community coming together to make this happen.” This year’s rodeo will feature the stock of Summit Pro Rodeo, a new partnership created by J.D. Hamaker from the original Burns Rodeo Co., along with two other new partners, Jesse Hill of H&H Rodeo and Greg Talbert of Talbert Bucking Bulls. As the primary stock contractor, Summit Pro Rodeo will provide some of the most feared buckers in professional rodeo today, having supplied bulls for many NFR and Mountain States Circuit Finals, Xtreme Bulls and PBR. The arena is tucked in a ring of 75-foot-tall pine trees with an open view of the Rocky Mountains. There will be professional bull riding on Friday night, a parade Saturday, three PRCA performances on Saturday

and Sunday, and a dance with a live band on Friday and Saturday night. “When people come they are guaranteed to see the top in the nation regardless of which performance they go to,” Swisher said. There will be free public admission to Vendor Alley throughout the weekend. Vendor Alley is open 5 to 10 p.m. Friday, 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday. There are more than 250 volunteers that help put on the Elizabeth Stampede each year. The following is a more in-depth look at some of the various attractions of the Stampede:

Mutton bustin’

This is an event held at rodeos similar to bull riding or bronc riding, in which children ride or race sheep. In order to compete, children must weigh less than 65 pounds and be younger than 8 years old. Contestants must be registered for the event beforehand. Mutton bustin’ will take place at each of the rodeo performances over the weekend. “It’s always a crowd favorite,” Swisher said.

Parade and royalty

The 2014 Elizabeth Stampede Queen is Bailey Volock. Volock is the 21-year-old daughter of John and Jane Volock of Kiowa. She is currently finishing her degree online in agricultural sciences with minors in chemistry and psychology from Oregon State University’s Ecampus. She competes in reining, roping, Western riding events and English riding events, among other things, in organizations such as the American Quarter Horse Association, the American Paint Horse Association, the International Buckskin Horse Association and the American Buckskin Horse Association. Madison Russell is the 2014 Elizabeth Stampede Attendant. She is 18 years old and attending the University of Wyoming. The parade will start at 10 a.m. on June 7, and the course is about a mile long. There will be a free pancake breakfast before the parade

County survey shows changing perceptions of schools Positive responses on annual survey have dropped since 2006 By Jane Reuter

jreuter@coloradocommunitymedia.com A county-sponsored survey about a variety of qualityof-life issues in Douglas County shows that perceptions about schools are changing. More than 80 percent of residents surveyed earlier this year agreed that the county has good schools and educational opportunities — but that’s down from 90 percent in the survey’s first year. “It’s trending in the wrong direction,” researcher David Hill said about education-related responses taken since

his company began the bi-annual Citizens Survey in 2006. “There is (about) a 7-point decline in positive impressions of the county as a place where there are good schools.” Hill said the decline in perceptions about schools is in contrast to steadily improving positive responses about other aspects of life in Douglas County. The question is not specific to K-12 education, Hill pointed out, and doesn’t provide enough definitive data to reach any solid conclusions. “One thing I would be cautious about is that as Douglas County has grown and become more diverse, part of the reaction here may not be just to K-12 schools, but that they want more access to community colleges, or some other kind of educational products that might be more available in downtown Denver,” said Hill, who founded Hill Research Consultants in 1988. “It indicates there’s something going on there that’s worth considering.” The question posed of about 600 people in an April phone survey asks whether or not they agree Douglas County “has good schools and educational opportunities for all ages.” In 2006, 90 percent of respondents agreed this was an accurate description. In 2014, 82 percent did — the lowest number of positive responses recorded since the question first was asked in 2006. In 2006, 6 percent agreed this was not an accurate description. In 2014, 17 percent did — the highest number of negative responses recorded since 2006. The Douglas County School Board began implementing education-reform policies in 2009 that have sparked resistance from some staff and community members. An emailed comment provided by DCSD spokeswoman Paula Hans said, “What Douglas County parents, students,

and taxpayers are interested in are results. The Douglas County School District continues to deliver top results for our students.” Hans cited statistics that show DCSD has one of the highest graduation rates in the Denver Metro Area, rising from 81.9 percent in 2009 to 88.8 percent in 2013, and the fact that the recently graduated Class of 2014 earned more than $65.5 million in scholarships. The county survey overall showed the majority of residents are content with the direction the county is moving in and optimistic about the future. “We are thrilled to learn that 98 percent of respondents believe Douglas County is a good place to raise a family, and that 92 percent of respondents believe Douglas County property values are strong,” Hans’ email read. “These are both strong indicators linked to K-12 education and local school districts.” Community members have for months requested the district re-initiate its annual school-specific survey; the survey hasn’t been done since 2012, and DCSD discounted those results as too small to be statistically valid. Board president Kevin Larsen said during a March meeting the board would consider a survey. In both 2006 and 2014, 601 people responded to the county’s citizen surveys. Douglas County spokeswoman Wendy Holmes said county officials did not wish to comment on the school responses, instead deferring comment on the subject to Hill. Hill Research Consultants has a national client base that includes public officials, schools, state and local government agencies, major corporations, chambers of commerce and public relations firms.

District liaison says she will act as a guide to asssist families

Q: What is your understanding of your responsibilities? A: My understanding of my responsibilities is what is stated in … Senate Bill 193 that outlines the state law to create greater parent involvement in education. I have attended 30 SAC (School Accountability Committee) meetings so that I can get to know issues surrounding parent involvement, best practices and how I can be a resource to help parents in the district. Q: Are you excited about the job? Why? A: I understand the importance of this job and am excited about the possibilities and the ability to collaborate with parents. I believe strongly in the mission and believe that what really matters at the end of the day is whether our children and their families have been prepared for a changing, transforming and quickly advancing world. I want to help guide them in that effort. Q: Where do you live in Douglas County? Do you have kids in DCSD schools? A: Castle Rock. Yes. Q: What’s your impression of DCSD overall? A: I have a favorable impression of the district and the schools that comprise it. As a parent and a coach, I am more than confident in its ability to deliver the best education possible to the children that I know and care about.

Staff report The Douglas County School District in April hired Katherine Brown as parent liaison in a new position called school-community partnership coordinator. Brown’s starting annual salary is $58,000. Colorado Community Media’s request to interview Brown was not granted by DCSD public information officer Paula Hans. Instead, written questions were submitted, and Hans provided Brown’s answers, which follow, via email. Q: What do you think you bring personally and professionally that makes you well Brown suited to this position? A: First of all, I am a parent and coach in the district who has now seen both sides of the equation — as a parent and as an employee. I never take the “parent” out of the equation because that is my first responsibility and my loyalty. Therefore, I believe that all parents want to ultimately do what is best for their kids. I have been trained in PROSCI* and have worked with children in poverty in educational situations throughout the world through an international charity, advocating for them and their families, and bringing awareness to their needs. I also am an advocate against violence against women and have worked with victims of violence in high school, college and professional organizations, advocating for their rights on campuses and bringing awareness to violence against women and Title IX.

State to review teacher evaluation system Union complaint prompts closer look at Douglas County program roll-out By Jane Reuter

jreuter@coloradocommunitymedia.com The Colorado Department of Education has agreed to review the Douglas County School District’s teacher-evaluation system, a request made by the teachers’ union in May. Though the Douglas County Federation of Teachers’ request alleges the system is “invalid and unreliable,” the CDE said its decision to take a closer look doesn’t mean it concurs. “It’s really based on the idea that the requester has identified some areas we just want to verify the district has addressed,” said CDE director of educator effectiveness Toby King. “We’ve identified we will do a review, and asked the district to provide artifacts.” That’s in accordance with the process outlined by the CDE. Based on its review of the information submitted by DCSD, the state will either “prepare a response that may resolve the issue or that may indicate further investigation of the request is needed,” according to the CDE. Teachers’ union president Courtney Smith said the state’s decision is a small step in the right direction. “It won’t be a victory until they force the district to address the serious concerns, and the harm and impact this system is having on teachers and in classrooms,” she said. In response to news of CDE’s review, DCSD reissued the

response it sent in May, when the teachers’ union submitted the review request. The district response included an emailed comment attributed to school board president Kevin Larsen, stating, “The union complaint is another attempt to stir controversy and chaos where there is none. This is a frivolous waste of time and resources.” DCSD’s emailed response also said it works with its staff to address concerns related to the evaluations, and that it has implemented multiple checks and balances to ensure the system’s reliability and consistency. Teacher and principal evaluations now are required in all Colorado school districts under Senate Bill 191, passed in 2010. Districts were allowed to adopt either the state’s teacher evaluation program, or create their own; DCSD designed and introduced its own in 2012. The evaluations are part of DCSD’s pay-for-performance program. Based on self-evaluations, meetings with administrator-level evaluators and other factors, each teacher was assigned a rating ranging from “highly effective” to “ineffective.” Pay increases are tied to those ratings, and also to a new market-based pay scale. Smith said DCSD failed to properly define the outcomes teachers needed to reach to secure peak ratings under the system, and hasn’t changed the evaluations despite numerous complaints during the roll-out year. That’s taken a toll on teachers’ morale and finances, and prompted many of them to leave the district, she said. The longstanding contract between DCSD and the Douglas County Federation expired in 2012 after weeks of negotiations.

jreuter@coloradocommunitymedia.com Castle Rock’s Rock Ridge Elementary School is without a permanent principal. The woman hired to replace Amber Sorg resigned from the Douglas County School District. Sorg, who had resigned and planned to leave in June, was put on administrative leave for alleged misconduct six weeks before her scheduled departure. The district-level decision to put her on leave came in the wake of a parent and student May 16 rally protesting a district-led review of teacher evaluations. Because of Sorg’s abrupt departure, district leaders announced they’d bring in new principal Michelle Colton, who was serving as assistant principal at Acres Green Elementary, earlier than originally planned. Colton had accepted the position at Rock Ridge before Sorg was put on leave, but chose

not to step into her new role, according to a May 23 district letter to parents. Absent a permanent principal, Rock Ridge assistant principal Julie Roach will head up the school. Neither Sorg nor Colton could be reached for comment. Colton is no longer employed at Acres Green Elementary. Rock Ridge teacher evaluations led by Sorg designated the staff “effective” or “highly effective,” prompting a second, district-led evaluation that sparked parent protests. DCSD officials said a Level 2 review is standard when evaluations don’t appear consistent with those of other schools. Teachers’ ratings are tied to pay increases. District leaders acknowledged Sorg’s alleged misconduct in a May 19 letter DCSD assistant superintendent of elementary education Ted Knight sent to parents. Knight said he could not comment further because the issue is a personnel matter.

opinions / yours and ours

For a real good time, skip the good times One of my pet peeves is “pet peeves.” Is that fair? It’s kind of like saying that you are opposed to flavored coffee because it is flavored. I am opposed to flavored coffee because it is flavored. Coffee has to be black, and strong enough to clean my paint brushes. We begin to have dislikes at an early age. It probably starts with vegetables. Especially vegetables that have been turned into a pudding, like beets. I’m not sure what comes next. Being told to go to bed when you want to stay up. Getting dressed up on Sunday morning. Entertainment options were very limited when I was a kid. I don’t know what it would be like to have had a time limit on video games, because we didn’t have video games. We had Buffalo Bob Smith. Now I have more dislikes than likes. I admit it. No es bueno. But I know myself, and what is and isn’t beneficial. The Cheyenne Frontier Days would not be beneficial. It would do me harm. This year there is a double feature: Kid Rock and special guest Joan Jett and the Blackhearts on July

25. Tickets are $39. No thank you. I flew into LaGuardia a few years ago and waited for a cab right next to the Blackhearts’ gear. The girl I was with almost passed out, she was so thrilled. Joan has had quite a career. She had one big hit a long time ago, but she is still rocking. I don’t know anything about Kid Rock, except that he is from Michigan, and that he is loyal to Michigan, which is fine with me. I was born in Michigan. The rodeo part of Frontier Days is something I couldn’t watch. I know that, so I know enough to stay away. I helped out at the Highlands Ranch Rodeo a few

letters to the editor leaving the douglas County school district

It is with a heavy heart that my husband and I have decided to move our youngest child to Littleton Public Schools next year. In 2002, when we moved to our current home in Highlands Ranch, we thought we’d found the perfect place to live, with top-notch neighborhood schools. And although many dedicated staff members still remain in Douglas County School District, we believe the district has lost focus on creating the best learning environment for students. As a highly involved parent who has attended many district meetings, I still have no clear picture of what a “World Class Education” looks like. Comments made by district leadership and hired speakers would indicate that parents should expect a radical change in their children’s education, but no substantial details

are provided. I am unsure what “choice” means and few of the choices that I value appear to be of importance to the district. Instead, I have repeatedly watched the district spend millions of dollars on reform initiatives and self-promotion that have had little, if any, positive impact on my child’s education. Simultaneously, millions of dollars worth of questionable cuts to our schools have been made that are directly and negatively impacting our students. I believe our teachers are the most important assets in my child’s education. The refusal to acknowledge survey results that showed one out of every three high school teachers is looking to leave the district make me question if our board of educaLetters continues on Page 9

$50 billion fund would boost infrastructure Last month, I had the honor of attending the grand opening of Denver’s Union Station. The new transit hub pays homage not only to the miners and pioneers who — more than 150 years ago — envisioned our city’s bright future, but also to our parents and grandparents who had the foresight and generosity to build the highways, waterways and energy infrastructure that helped make the American economy the largest in the world. Unfortunately, we have not had the dignity to maintain the assets that they built for us, much less build the infrastructure our children will need to compete in a 21st-century economy. At a time when other nations are constructing cutting-edge road, rail, Internet and education capacity, our public infrastructure investment has dwindled to half of what it was 50 years ago. The Highway Trust Fund, the funding vehicle that pays for most of the bridge, highway and road construction in this country, is expected to run out of money this summer. Last year, the U.S. received a D-plus letter grade on the Infrastructure Report Card from the American Society of Civil Engineers. To make matters worse, the bill that authorizes transportation projects called MAP-21, Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century, is set to expire September 30. It’s clear that we are falling woefully behind. We can and must do better. Rather than arguing over which party got us into this dire situation or pointing fingers at who’s to blame, some of us in Congress have been working on solutions. Here’s one that will help. Earlier this year, Republican Senator Roy Blunt and I introduced the Partnership to Build America Act. It establishes a $50 billion infrastructure fund to support hundreds of billions in loan guarantees

and financing authority for state and local governments. The fund could be used to finance the construction of roads, highways, ports, canals, schools and other infrastructure projects — urgently needed projects like the Arkansas Valley Conduit in southeast Colorado or the widening of Interstate 25 north of Denver, to pick just two examples. The act would also encourage publicprivate partnerships, which will help stretch the fund’s financing to cover more high-priority projects. Even by the most conservative estimates, these projects would create thousands of jobs across the nation. The fund itself would not be created by taxpayers, but by U.S. companies. The act encourages businesses to contribute to the fund by creating an incentive to bring a limited amount of their earnings back to the country from overseas. This bill is not a cure-all. It is not a permanent fix to the insolvency of the Highway Trust Fund, nor will it take the place of MAP-21, both important legislative vehicles that Congress needs to address in the next four months. Whether it’s an interchange reconstruction in El Paso County to improve traffic flow, or a road-widening project Bennet continues on Page 9

years ago, and said to myself, “Never again, Smith.” I have said “Never again, Smith,” many, many times. It means that I know better. When I was younger, I went where I didn’t belong, because I had an open mind. I no longer have an open mind. Chances are if there are people there, I am not there. Isn’t that charming? “Mildred, this here writer is a stiff.” It’s true. See if you can guess where I would rather be: The Indy 500. A New Year’s Eve party. The grand opening of an Ikea. Right here writing. My ex always wanted to be somewhere. I always wanted to be nowhere. You can probably guess what happened. She wanted to surprise me — a mistake to begin with — on my 50th birthday. She had tickets to San Francisco to spend the weekend with my best friend and his wife. I was very unhappy, and showed it. One detail she left out was money. She had none. I don’t know how she afforded the airfare. I had very little, and I knew my credit

card would have had an infarction. We didn’t go, and she refused to see me for weeks. I can’t think of too many things that are worse than surprise parties. Oh, there are hundreds of things in life that are worse, but not when it comes to my perception of a good time. You might be planning a surprise party right now. Good for you. People, other people, love them. That moment when your boyfriend walks in the door and his friends and marginal friends jump up and say, “Surprise!” and “Speech!” — now you’re talking. I went to one about 25 years ago, and the guest of honor almost walked. She was appalled. Later that night, she and her girlfriend had words. And they weren’t words of love.

Take some steps for uncommon results This is not a “hot off the press” news flash, but rather a simple yet powerful reminder: “Common sense is not always common practice.” You have certainly heard this before, and I have absolutely heard it myself and even repeated it in classroom training, keynote speeches, and from time to time have shared it in this column over the past few years. What I wanted to do in this column is take this principle to the next level. Recently I shared how important fundamentals are to success in both our personal and professional lives. However, now let’s talk about not just common sense, but those lesser-known best practices that actually deliver uncommon results. For a few of us, we are exactly where we want to be in life. We are settled, content, happy and may have no desire or need to look for anything that elevates or disrupts our splendid contentedness. Now for the rest of us who truly desire “uncommon results,” we need to continue to follow the blocking and tackling fundamentals that have gotten us this far, but now we need to look beyond the basics and proven fundamentals and search out the advanced ideas and best practices to help propel us as we continue on the upward journey of our success. So where do we go or how do we search for those best practices that can add value to our lives? Here are three ideas that have helped me over the years and that you may also find useful and help lead you to

uncommon results. 1. Identify the person, group, or team that you believe excels in the area you are trying to advance in or improve. Upon connecting with them, invite them to coffee or arrange a call or meeting and just ask them what they have found to be the differentiators or best practices that have helped them to achieve uncommon results. You will be amazed to find out just how open and willing they will be to share their success story with you. 2. Get out of your comfort zone and try something new. Even as you are enjoying the benefits of your success or achievements, push yourself to try something new that will stretch you and push you to the next level. 3.

Arrowsmith ends race for state House seat Neville is lone Republican standing to replace Murray By Ryan Boldrey

rboldrey @coloradocommunitymedia.com State House District 45 candidate Patrick Neville, R-Franktown, will have to wait until November to run a contested race in the hopes of replacing Rep. Carole Murray, R-Castle Rock, who is retiring from office. Neville, who was running against Douglas County Clerk and Recorder Jack Arrowsmith for the Republican nomination, garnered 64 percent of the delegate vote at the party’s general assembly on

March 22 to Arrowsmith’s members, Arrowsmith said, 36 percent. “while some think a vigorThe vote placed both ous primary is the way to candidates on the privet our candidates, I believe mary ballot, but when Arthat these contentious races rowsmith’s current office have had a devastating efsends those ballots out fect on the long-term well to registered Republicans Arrowsmith being of the party. … Neville throughout the county in “At some point we need a couple days, his own name to set aside self-interest and won’t be on them. determine that the very survival of the Re“My decision came not long after the publican Party outweighs pride or agenda. county assembly,” Arrowsmith said. “I was It will take tens of thousands of dollars to gratified to make the ballot, but it was ap- conduct a primary race … and these preparent that my opponent had the support cious dollars can better be spent on deof the delegate body and I figured that feating the liberal agenda.” ought to mean something.” Arrowsmith said Neville is “morally In a letter to supporters and party sound, has a great young family and seems

to be a nice young man.” He is encouraging his supporters to vote for Neville come November when he faces Democratic challenger Brandon Wicks of Castle Rock. Neville called the move by Arrowsmith “extremely classy,” and said his former opponent acted the part of “an absolute gentleman.” “There are not enough words to express how honored and humbled I am to have the support of Jack Arrowsmith,” he wrote in his own letter to supporters. “It is a high honor to be the Republican nominee for House District 45. I will work relentlessly to fight against the leftist agenda with a staunch commitment to promote our conservative values every step of the way.”

probation. Swecker was driving a goldcolored Ford Excursion about 2 a.m. on Feb. 25, 2012, when he slammed into a dark-colored Ford Expedition and ran into Nelson Canada, 24, while doing 80 mph. At the time of impact, Canada was outside the Expedition near Swecker mile marker 183 on southbound Interstate 25, standing on the far right side of the highway, where he was preparing to take over driving duties for the other person in the vehicle, who apparently was too intoxicated to drive. When Swecker’s vehicle struck Cana-

da, the victim was thrown 124 feet through the air, landing in the fast lane of the four-lane stretch of highway. A witness called 911 and both the Castle Rock Police Department and Colorado State Patrol arrived at the scene, which had been vacated by Swecker. Swecker, who did not call for help or attempt to administer aid, walked more than a mile to a gas station, using his cell phone to call his wife, who he met at the station. She drove him back to the scene of the crash 40 minutes later, where he registered a blood alcohol level of 0.118 percent

after taking a breathalyzer test at 3:43 a.m., which means he was still .038 over the legal limit almost two hours after the accident. “The defendant in this case was so intoxicated that he never saw the vehicle or Mr. Canada,” Deputy District Attorney Kelly LaFave said in a statement. “He made no effort to stop; instead he slammed into the rear of the Expedition, running over Nelson Canada in the process. “He then exited his vehicle, walking past Nelson’s body, in order to flee the scene. … For those who refuse to take responsibility at the scene of a deadly accident, know that the justice system will pursue you to the full extent of the law.”

up the trail from the parking area. According to the search and rescue team, he had tripped and hit his head on some rocks that mark the trail. It took three hours after the initial 911 call to give the hiker care at the scene and get him to an AirLife helicopter for

transport to an area hospital, where the man was still recovering from head trauma at time of press. The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, AirLife Denver and the Jackson 105, Castle Rock and Larkspur fire departments assisted with the rescue efforts.

The trailhead is located about nine miles south of State Highway 67 on Rampart Range Road. The search and rescue teams in Colorado are all-volunteer and do not charge for their services.

Yet a business in which employees and customers feel unappreciated and disrespected by the organization’s leadership can hardly be considered successful.

Ski hill truly artificial

Does anyone else see the lunacy in having an artificial snow ski hill in Castle Rock, or anywhere else in Colorado for that matter? All the developer and our Town Council see are dollar signs. This town is selling itself out, and I’m tired of it. Further, if the town potentially has to refund excess tax revenue anyway due to TABOR, then Council’s diatribe that more revenue is needed to provide town services seems moot.

Celebrate the town’s trails

The Town of Castle Rock is marking National Trails Day with a work day along one of the most beautiful trails in the area, Memmen Ridge Open Space. Volunteers are needed to help maintain and restore sections of the nearly two-mile soft-surface trail on June 7. Registration and complimentary breakfast begin at 8 a.m.; work on the trail begins at 9 a.m. Tools will be provided, but volunteers are asked to bring their own gloves. For more information or for preregistration, go to CRgov.com/trailsday.

The Colorado Joint Counterdrug Task Force, along with special agents from the Drug Enforcement Administration, landed a Black Hawk helicopter May 21 at Castle Rock’s The Rock Christian Academy in honor of Red Ribbon Week. Castle Rock police officers and firefighters were also on hand for the event, which commemorated DEA Special Agent Enrique “Kiki” Camarena, who died at the hands of drug traffickers in Mexico while fighting the battle against illegal drugs.

Castle Rock man sentenced 30 years in real-estate scam Steven Thompson cheats family out of $2.33 million on property deal By Mike DiFerdinando

mdiferdinando @coloradocommunitymedia.com A Castle Rock man has been sentenced to 30 years in prison after being found guilty of a fraud scheme in which he stole $2.33 million. In September 2010, Steven Curtis Thompson, 62, convinced a family to purchase a property lot in Castle Rock’s Timber Canyon housing development. Thompson told the family that a $400,000 deposit was necessary in order to secure their investment.

In September 2010, the victims wired the money to Thompson Mortgage and Associates, where Thompson was the owner, according to a news release from the 18th Judicial District Attorney’s Office. Shortly after, Thompson told the victims that his company could purchase the remaining development lots with a $2 million “bridge loan.” Thompson told the victims that the aggregate value of the lots ranged between $20 million and $31 million and that he would pay the victims back within a few weeks. When the time had come to repay the loan, Thompson said he couldn’t pay any money despite having $1.6 million of their money left in the account. According to the news release, he “forgot” to inform the investors that his company was in bankruptcy and the property was in foreclosure.

The victims told the district attorney’s office that it took them 38 years to earn the money that Thompson spent in less than a year. “This thief’s grandiose dreams of living a life beyond his own means ended up costing too many victims their hardearned money,” District Attorney George Brauchler said in the news release. “These types of economic crimes not only take advantage of a person’s savings, but it robs them of their trust in people. “After everything that this defendant did to live a life of pomp and decadence, it’s fitting that he will spend the rest of his life living in a jail cell of very bare conditions.” Investigator Mary Beth Chandler of the district attorney’s office found that Thompson used the money from the victims on personal expenses including car payments, airline tickets, golf club mem-

berships, landscaping payments, jewelry and numerous expensive upgrades to his luxury home — the latter of which he also purchased with the victims’ money. On March 25, a Douglas County jury found Thompson guilty of felony theft and two counts of securities fraud. Judge Paul King sentenced Thompson on May 30 to 18 years for the first charge, which will run consecutive to the two concurrent 12-year securities fraud sentences for a total of 30 years. During sentencing, King also referenced a previous case from 2011, in which Thompson conned another family out of $120,000 in a similar scheme. He was convicted of felony theft and forgery in that case in April 2013 and ordered to spend 90 days in jail, followed by probation and the payment of restitution in that case.

the court needed to take to ensure due process is upheld, then I’m fine with that.” A new two-week trial has been set to begin in Douglas County on Sept. 16. Prosecutors with the 18th Judicial District Attorney’s Office had spent months preparing for the case. “This (case) is important to me,” Brauchler said. “When someone is accused of trying to do something as serious as kill a police officer, I’m going to be there to make sure justice is upheld in the case.” The 2012 incident began with a report of a man hiding in a bush around 11:30 p.m. at an intersection near the southwest edge of Castlewood Ranch, a subdivision south of Founders Village. Officers arrived to find Pebley’s brother, Steve Pebley, 44, who reported that Lonnie Pebley had left his home earlier that day after a dispute with his wife. While talking to Steve Pebley, officers observed a vehicle leave the area.

They stopped the vehicle and made contact with Lonnie Pebley, who appeared to have a gun in his possession, according to the statement of probable cause filed in Douglas County District Court. A chase ensued, during which Lonnie Pebley led officers to his home, where he used a handgun to shoot numerous rounds at Castle Rock police, court documents say. Pebley then ran inside the home and began firing at officers with a semi-automatic rifle, police said. During the shooting, Steve Pebley allegedly placed himself between his brother and responding officers and ignored officers’ commands to get out of the line of fire. When police were able to restrain Steve Pebley, he allegedly became combative and continued to kick and fight officers after he was placed in handcuffs. Steve Pebley was eventually subdued and charged with obstructing a peace officer and resisting arrest. SWAT team members were called to the scene, and no officers were injured during the incident. Lonnie Pebley eventually surrendered, police reported.

was taken back to the kennel. The two other dogs were still missing as of the afternoon of June 2. The dogs are considered aggressive toward people and other animals, the release stated. To that end, anyone knowing the dogs’ whereabouts is asked to avoid direct contact with them, and should instead call the DCSO tip line at 303-6607579 or 911 in an emergency situation. No suspects had been identified by the sheriff’s office as of June 2. Possible charges include felony theft.

Three German shepherds, including this one, are believed to have been stolen from a private kennel in Douglas County over the weekend. One of them has since been located. All three dogs taken are trained police/military attack dogs. Courtesy Photo

Seniors walk for fitness day East Plum Creek Trail event ends with snacks, coffee By Mike DiFerdinando

mdiferdinando @colroadocommunitymedia.com Castle Rock seniors gathered for a walk May 28 to celebrate National Senior Health and Fitness day. The walk began at Festival Park at Second and Wilcox streets, and walkers strolled the East Plum Creek Trail to Safeway and back. There were about 40 individuals who came out for the walk. “This is Castle Rock’s third annual walk that we’ve done and really the goal is to promote physical activity in the community setting and get seniors together and get everyone moving,” Fitness and Wellness Coordinator for the town of Castle Rock Courtney Fay said.

Water stations were available along the trail and snacks and coffee was provided at the end of the walk. Participants also received a commemorative button. National Senior Health and Fitness Day is an opportunity to encourage older Americans to stay healthy and fit. It is organized as a public-private partnership by the Mature Market Resource Center, a national information organization for older adults. More than 100,000 seniors nationwide were estimated to participate this year. Many of the walkers were regular members of Healthways Inc.’s SilverSneakers Fitness Program, which aims to improve the health and fitness of seniors in conjunction with local communities and fitness centers. According to the company, in a nationwide study of more than 9,000 SilverSneakers members, 14 percent reported having diabetes. Forty-one percent of diabetic members reported having improved health after one or more years of participation and 46 percent reported improved body weight. High-risk sedentary behavior was reduced by 59 percent with SilverSneakers participation, the company says.

The Town of Castle Rock offers SilverSneakers classes multiple times each week at Panorama Hall. Go to www.groupexpro.com/schedule/353/ for a complete schedule of classes. “It’s actually really popular,” Fay said. “It’s all about getting the seniors active and getting them going.”

Rally, speakers aims to fight teen suicide Dark times will come to pass, event speaker says By Jane Reuter

jreuter@coloradocommunitymedia.com Les Franklin lost two sons to suicide, one as a teenager and another as an adult. He’s since devoted his life to helping those who may be considering suicide and who have suffered its impacts. Franklin is among several speakers who will highlight the LoveMirrorMirror teen suicide prevention rally, set for 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. June 14 at Highlands Ranch High School. Other speakers will include Cresthill Middle School Principal Sid Rundle, Second Wind Fund director Richard Eveleigh and Katie Higgins, a recent high school graduate. The three-hour event also includes a resource fair, with booths representing a va-

riety of youth-oriented community groups, a video presentation and a free fitness class sponsored by Littleton-based Ballet Physique. The rally was organized by a Douglas County resident who was moved to action after witnessing her teenage daughter’s reaction to a friend’s suicide. “She attended her first funeral for a high school friend last year,” said Robin Pasley, a mother of four who works at TW Telecom. “I just started seeing the struggles she’s been having, and the pressures kids are under.” To date in 2014, four Douglas County teenagers have been lost to suicide, according to Coroner Lora Thomas. Pasley was surprised at the amount of resources available to help teens, and realized others might be similarly unaware of those resources, as well as the issue of teen suicide. “I want to bring it out into the light so other people can see,” she said.

Franklin, who’s given thousands of presentations in both the United States and Canada, looks forward to sharing his message with Douglas County families. Franklin and his wife Marianne founded the Denver-based Shaka Franklin Foundation for suicide prevention and awareness, named after the 16-year-old son they lost to suicide, in 1990. In 2000, the couple’s only other child, 31-year-old Jamon, was found dead of carbon monoxide poisoning. “Not a day goes by I don’t think about my sons,” Les Franklin said. “I miss being called `Dad’ and `Pops’ by my sons, the Father’s Day cards I’d get from them. I look at my friends who have grandchildren and great-grandchildren. I’ll never have any of those things.” But, Franklin said, “We know what we’re doing has had an impact.” “I never would have ever done anything like this if it hadn’t been for the loss of my sons. It’s committed us to reach out and try to help other young people. We need to

find ways to stem the tide.” Franklin encourages parents to nurture an open, loving, nonjudgmental relationship with their children, one that lets teens feel comfortable discussing any aspect of their lives. He also encourages kids to talk to adults if they fear for a friend’s life. “It’s better to have an ex-friend than a dead friend,” Franklin said. “I tell children, never, ever keep it secret. It’s something you’ll live with the rest of your life, if they’re telling you something like this and you don’t speak out and tell someone.” He also lets teens know life’s darkest moments will pass. “Everyone’s going to be in the valley at some time, but ultimately, you’ll get out of it; you’ve just got to give yourself time,” Franklin said. “Learning how to deal with adversity is part of becoming an adult.” For more information on the rally, visit lovemirrormirror.org.

National Geographic film shown at museum By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe @coloradocommunitymedia.com Starting on June 6, the Denver Museum of Nature & Science will present a new National Geographic nature film, “Pandas: The Journey Home,” which sounds like a fine way to start a summer vacation focused on exploration. It tells a hopeful story of the effort to save these charismatic creatures, which are extremely endangered, with only about 1600 left worldwide. The film, directed by Nicholas Brown, was shot in China at the Bifengxia Panda Base and the Wolong National Nature Reserve — in 3-D, which made shooting terribly difficult, due to the weight of the cameras. After decades of successful captive breeding, the reserve has hit a target of 300 giant pandas.

The fourth season of ABC’s reality series “Extreme Weight Loss” debuted May 27 with a red-carpet reception at The United Artists Denver Pavilions Theatre downtown. Charita, the Colorado Springs contestant, was guided on her yearlong weightloss journey by Anschutz Health and Wellness Center’s Dr. Holly Wyatt along with other participants who spent the first three months of their quest at the center in Aurora. Wyatt, alongside fitness specialist Chris Powell, was the guiding force behind steering participants toward their yearlong goal of safely losing up to half their body weight. ABC will air 13 two-hour episodes of the hit show locally from 7 to 9 p.m. Tuesdays on Channel 7. Charita, who is featured with Oklahoma resident Ty in the first episode, and Wyatt attended the red-carpet premiere along with more than 200 community and Anschutz medical campus leaders and CEO/ executive producer JD Roth. During the run of the show, Wyatt is writing a blog at www.thedenverchannel. com/entertainment/extreme-weightloss-medical-director-holly-wyatt-blogsabout-charita-ty-weight-loss-journey.

Denver eateries on best list

Thrillist (www.thrillist.com), a national website that has an opinion on all things food and drink-related in the U.S., has bestowed “bests” to three Denver eateries. Included in The 21 Best Southern Restaurants Outside of the South is Tom’s Home Cookin’, 800 E. 26th Ave., a Denver favorite for Southern fare. Thrillist recommends the fried catfish paired with green beans and fried okra. “The name here says it all — this is home cooking, and even if you’ve never met Tom, you’ll be begging to be adopted so you can inhale this instead of whatever you’re hacking at your house.” Sweet Action Ice Cream, 52 Broadway, was included in Thrillist’s 21 Best Ice Cream Shops in America. Here’s the scoop: “What you’re ordering: Pocky and Red Bean if you’re feeling interesting, Milk Chocolate if you’re feeling boring. Our man in Denver tried every single one of the flavors at Sweet Action, and, although he didn’t care much for vegan Maple Walnut or Vanilla Rose, he can vouch for nearly every other flavor as being worth at least several samples. But as sexy as Salted Malt Butterscotch and Cinnamon Roll sound, the champion of the taste was a simple milk chocolate described as `a scoop of goodness ...’” If you prefer drinking your calories instead of eating them, check out Williams & Graham, 3160 Tejon St., the Denver speakeasy that made Thrillist’s The 33 Best Cocktail Bars in America. “A cocktail-themed bookstore is the front for this barely-lit speakeasy co-owned by a guy named the 2014 Bartender of the Year by the Nightclub and Bar Awards.

Writer salutes national park’s 100th birthday Castle Rock woman has strong ties to state’s jewel By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@colorado communitymedia.com As a young child, Mary Taylor Young of Castle Rock spent stretches of the summer at her grandparents’ cabin in Rocky Mountain National Park — back when private cabins were permitted. She watched animals and birds among the trees and undergrowth, learned the names of flowers and rocks — and the rhythms of those splendid surroundings. Her future was set. The author of 15 books about Colorado, Young has recently published a handsome coffee-table book: “Rocky Mountain National Park: The First 100 Years,” which she will present to readers at two Arapahoe Library District branches during June. From 11:30 am to 12:30 p.m. on June 13, she will be at Eloise May Library, 1471 S. Parker Road (Parker Road and Florida Avenue), and from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. June 25, she will repeat her program at Koelbel Library, 5955 S. Holly St. in Centennial. She spent two weeks in 2012 as the park’s artist-in-residence, researching and writing in the historic William Allen White cabin in Moraine Park, and has taught nature-writing classes and been involved with the Rocky Mountain Nature Association. She tells the story of Rocky Mountain National Park from not only 100 years ago, but a billion years ago — and stretches into the future. Ute and Arapaho hunted game, trappers and explorers followed a call and settlers moved into the Estes Park area and discov-

ered that they needed to attract tourists. Enos Mills, Joel and Patsy Estes and Abner and Alberta Sprague were among them. Roads were engineered and constructed and visitors came by the thousands. Recent concerns are that the park might be “loved to death.” The book contains more than 250 historical and landscape photographs, including images by photographers William Henry Jackson, John Fielder and Erik Stensland and paintings by Charles Partridge Adams and Birger Sandzen. Actual centennial celebrations for the park are scheduled starting this September and concluding a year later in Estes Park, in Rocky Mountain National Park itself and in Grand Lake. A lengthy list of activities is available online — and it cautions that this is a work in progress and will grow considerably, with special hikes, wildlife studies, and art events such as plein air painters “paint-out” and show at the Fall River Visi-

Four pairs of eyes look at the West Greenwood Village show has works by area painters By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@coloradocommunitymedia. com “Four Perspectives” is an exhibit of artworks by four experienced area painters: Lora Witt, Peggy Judy, Martha Hepperd and Victoria Ekelund. It will be displayed through June 27 at Elements 5280 Gallery in Greenwood Village. An opening reception is planned from 6 to 8 p.m. June 6, where visitors can meet the artists. “The concept behind the exhibition was to showcase these talented artists whose work is so different from one another. And it’s this diversity in how each artist executes their work that has shaped a strong show,” said gallery director George Rentz. The subject matter may overlap, but method and approach make each artist unique as they produce intimate landscapes, contemporary Western images, watercolor batik and urban plein air land-

Dr. Martha Heppard, of Centennial, who paints in a complex watercolor batik technique on rice paper, grew up in Honolulu and attended Harvard for undergraduate study and University of California School of Medicine and UC-Irvine. In 2004, she began to study oil painting with Molly Davis and then watercolor with Rick Brogan. She has added Boris Shoshensky and Kevin Weckbach as instructors and currently teaches the watercolor batik technique to others.

MeadowGrass enjoys record crowds

Bonnie Paine, left, and Dan Rodriguez, perform during Elephant Revival’s May 24 headlining set at the sixth annual MeadowGrass Music Festival in Black Forest.

Chadwick Stokes brought the MeadowGrass tent down with some powerful lyricism and guitar playing late into the evening on night two of the three-day festival that spanned May 23-25.

The sixth annual MeadowGrass Music Festival was the biggest yet, May 23-25 at La Foret Retreat, as crowds flocked to Black Forest to enjoy the sunshine Saturday afternoon, May 24, and keep warm and dry under the big top each of the three nights. The music was nothing short of sensational either as newgrass favorites Elephant Revival returned for their second festival appearance to headline Saturday night, coming on right after Grass it Up and Chadwick Stokes got the crowd on their feet. The Duhks, Haunted Windchimes, Birds of Chicago, Mother Hips, and more also performed over the course of the weekend.

Cary Hudson entertained the MeadowGrass crowd on May 24 with an early afternoon set of roots rock and blues.

As lights go up on Town Hall Arts Center’s production of “The Music Man,” a group of traveling salesmen are seated on a jerky train and a near-perfect rendition of Meredith Willson’s classic “Rock Island” has the audience at the start: “Ya gotta know the territory …” Director Christopher Willard has each actor sit on a suitcase and jiggle with the train’s motion as we meet Professor Harold Hill’s nemesis — Charlie Cowell, the anvil salesman (Ed Hickok). Town Hall alumnus Chris Boeckx, a Littleton native, who often performed at the city’s Town Hall center in the past, is now a practicing attorney and has returned with a nice sense “The Music Man” plays at Town Hall of humor intact, to Arts Center, 2450 W. Main St. in Littleton, play the wannabe through June 15. Performances: 7:30 p.m. con man who “gets Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays; 2 p.m. Sunhis foot caught in days; and 6:30 p.m. on June 8. (No Saturday the door” when he performance on June 14 due to the Littleton falls for Miss MarBlock Party.) Tickets: $20-$40, 303-794ian Paroo, the town’s 2787, ext. 5, or townhallartscenter.com. savvy librarian/piano teacher. Maggie Sczekan’s trained voice soars as Marian. She harmonizes with the music man, the omnipresent quartet (the school board) and others. As the folks of River City, Iowa, filter onstage for a July Fourth celebration, one is immediately impressed by Cindy Franke’s costumes in a dazzling assortment of black and white patterns and fabrics — really a clever way to present a pretty-much unified group of upright citizens. In Act II, color appears as the climate changes. Mayor Shinn (Bryan Walker-Smith) is given to malapropisms throughout and is making the first of many attempts to recite Lincoln’s famous address: “Four score …” At his side is the colorful Eulalie Shinn — comedienne LuAnn Buckstein is a natural fit here. His honor is trying to keep track of daughter Zaneeta (Erica Lloyd — “Ye Gods!”), who has her eye on live-wire local boy Tommy Diljas (Carter Edward Smith). The parallel story of Marian’s family blends in: Nancy E. Harris portrays her widowed Irish mama, who wants to see her married, and Carter Novinger of Littleton is appealing little brother Winthrop, who longs for a cornet when Hill proposes a brass band for town kids — “(Ya Got) Trouble” right here in River City … Hill’s image of “76 trombones” intrigues many in town, although some are unsure of his “think method” of learning music (“you don’t bother with the notes”). Kelly Kate’s choreography, most especially the scene at the library — but also for the Pickalittle Ladies and others — is charming and in some cases remarkably complex, given the stage space. Willson’s familiar score and a nostalgia for summers past — did they ever really exist? — combine to deliver a most pleasant evening of theater, with a polished, skillfully directed production that sends one out with a smile.

IF YOU GO

Parker Continued from Page 15

Before you order from their finely curated cocktail menu of classic ‘tails (helpfully organized by spirit) and a wealth of specialty cocktails, you first will have to be led through a bookcase that doubles as a secret entrance. Once inside, don’t forget to pair your drink (go for the Sexual Chocolate with rye, vermouth, Cynar, maraschino liqueur, and chocolate mole bitters) with a steak burger that uses beef from a top-notch butcher shop down the street.”

Illusions rule It’s all in the teeth! in ‘Fantasticks’ Play has gentle fun with romantic life By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@colorado communitymedia.com The setting is “any time, any place,” according to the program of “The Fantasticks” by Tim Jones and Harvey Schmidt, on stage at Miners Alley Playhouse in Golden. Lights go up and we meet the magical El Gallo (Rory Pierce), with red scarf and jaunty feather in his hat, singing: “Deep in December, it’s nice to remember …” as he sets the stage for an evening that “celebrates romanticism and mocks it at the same time,” according to lyricist Tom Jones; the play seeks “to touch people and then make them laugh at the very thing that touched them.” Jones is further quoted in a short bio: “The Fantasticks is a musical about illusions: the illusions of young lovers, the illlusions of their parents, the illusions of the old actors. But most of all, it is about theatrical illusion itself, that tacit agreement between the artists and the audience to create an imaginary world together, to draw moonlight from a cardboard disc and to transform a few scraps of torn paper into gently falling snow … “To that end, we have borrowed theatrical devices from many cultures and many times: the Narrator `Chorus’ from early Greek drama, the platform stage and stock types from Italy’s Comedia dell’Arte, the `invisible’ property man from Oriental theater and perhaps, most important of all, the robust traditions of our own homegrown musical comedy.” Director Brenda Billings (who is now artistic director of Miners Alley Playhouse, working with managing director Jonathan Scott-McKean and executive director Len

Matheo) quotes from Jones’ comments as she remembers more than 50 years of the history of this charming show. Written in 1960, it concerns two neighboring fathers, Hucklebee (Tim Fishbaugh) and Bellomy (Steve Klein), who cultivate their gardens and plot to make their children, Luisa (Jacquie “The Fantasticks” plays through Jo Billings) and June 29 at Miners Alley Playhouse, Matt (Mark 1224 Washington Ave., Golden. Lively), fall in Performances: 7:30 p.m. Fridays love by preand Saturdays; 6 p.m. Sundays, tending to feud except June 29, when the perforwith each other mance will be at 2 p.m. Tickets: $26/$23, 303-935-3044, minersal- and building a wall to keep the ley.com. young people apart. “If you plant a radish, you get a radish,” they sing, expecting life to be that straightforward. They plan to stage a mock abduction in which Matt will save Luisa. This involves El Gallo and a pair of over-the-hill actors: Shakespearean Henry (Don Deveaux) and Mortimer, The Man Who Dies (Clark Brittain), who make fun of all sorts of stage history. The young pair discover the ruse and, angry, decide to separate. Each has bad experiences in the real world and they eventually reunite. Of course, we knew it would end well. Backing the actors is a live band, led by musical director Mitch Samu on keyboards. It includes harpist Don Hilsberg, who subbed in the original New York production in the 1980s, when he was a student. Also performing: Tag Worley, drums; Burt Singleton, bass. The New Miners Alley crew has produced a gentle, sweet, thoughtful work that would seem to be an ideal lead-in to summer.

CANCER (Jun 21 to Jul 22) Holding back on a decision might be difficult, considering how long you’ve waited for this opportunity. But until you’re able to resolve all doubts, it could be the wiser course to take. LEO (Jul 23 to Aug 22) You still need to move carefully where financial matters are concerned. Better for the Lion to move slowly than pounce on a “promising” prospect that doesn’t keep its promises. VIRGO (Aug 23 to Sept 22) A rejection of an idea you believe in can be upsetting. But don’t let it discourage you. Get yourself back on track and use what you’ve learned from the experience to try again. LIBRA (Sept 23 to Oct 22) The early part of the week could find you looking to balance your priorities between your family obligations and your career responsibilities. Pressures begin to ease by week’s end. SCORPIO (Oct 23 to nov 21)An associate’s problem could cause unavoidable delays in moving ahead with your joint venture. If so, use the time to look into another project you had previously set aside. SAGITTARIUS (nov 22 to Dec 21) Although a financial problem could be very close to being resolved in your favor, it’s still a good idea to avoid unnecessary spending for at least a little while longer. CAPRICORN (Dec 22 to Jan 19) Support for some unwelcome workplace decisions begins to show up, and continues to build, so that by week’s end, the gregarious Goat is as popular as ever. AQUARIUS (Jan 20 to Feb 18) Congratulations. Deciding to attend a social function you might have earlier tried to avoid could turn out to be one of the best decisions you’ve made in a long time. PISCES (Feb 19 to Mar 20) Getting into a new situation could prove to be a more difficult experience than you expected.

Practice makes perfect for Falcons’ swimmer Mueller’s two state titles earn him honors as south metro’s best By Jim Benton

jbenton@coloradocommunitymedia.com Highlands Ranch graduating senior Nathan Mueller worked all season to make sure he was ready to meet all the challenges and challengers in the 200- and 500-yard freestyle races at the Class 5A Boys Colorado State Swimming Championships. “Nathan started the season very focused,” said Highlands Ranch head coach Christina Kwon. “He requested, if possible, that I put him in the 200 freestyle and 500 freestyle for every meet.

He wanted to really be prepared to win by the time we got to state. “Although Nathan has always been a very strong and dedicated swimmer, he spent his senior season working on pacing correctly and sharpening his turns in order to be the best.” Mueller was the best in the May 17 state finals, winning state championships in both events with All-American times. He touched up in 1 minute, 38.26 seconds in the 200 and 4:27.41 in the 500. For that dedication and excellence, he has been selected as the Colorado Community Media South Metro Boys Swimmer of the Year. “The 500 freestyle is such a mental race,” he said. “I just thought if I swam it a bunch I would be more comfortable mentally with it. I’d have much different race strategies to go after by practicing it a lot.”

Mueller, bound for the University of Wisconsin, didn’t sneak up on anyone this year as he carried the top Class 5A times in the 200 and 500 freestyles into the state meet. “I went in with the mindset of being real confident in myself and knowing that I could do it,” he said. “It was kind of the mental state I put myself in that I didn’t leave any room for doubt. That’s what I had to do in order to win. Every time you get behind the blocks there is always a little nervousness. I just took a deep breath, got up on the block and went. “It was a lot of fun to end my high school career like that winning two state titles. The swimming season as a whole was a fun experience to finish high school with people I really like and enjoy, and doing the sport I love.”

Jack Griffin looks like a typical junior at Ponderosa High School. On the lacrosse field, he plays like a creature from Greek mythology, at least according to the announcers of one particular opponent. During Ponderosa’s semifinal game against Steamboat Springs May 14, Griffin scored seven goals and added an assist in a 17-13 victory. Steamboat announcers referred to Griffin as a “mythological beast.” The game could also be viewed on the Steamboat Radio website, and Griffin tuned in to the broadcast after the game to watch it. “I laughed at that,” he said. “I thought it was funny. I watched that whole broadcast of the game and they were calling everybody on both teams funny names like that.” There was nothing funny about Griffin being named the Colorado Community Media South Metro boys lacrosse Player of the Year, however. Griffin scored 57 goals for the Class 4A state champion Mustangs and dished out 38 assists for a season total of 95 points. He was second among Class 4A players in points and groundballs (140). He was third in goals, fourth in assists and fourth in face-off percentage (.667). “Jack is a phenomenal lacrosse player and athlete,” said Ponderosa coach Patrick Tierney. “Achieving a high rank in scoring from the midfield position, on top of being one of the best face-off guys in the state, makes him an extremely dangerous player. “Teams prepare to try to stop him, but he trusts his teammates to finish goals which significantly contributed to the success of our team. As a coach I am continually impressed with his talent and athleticism but it is his love and passion for the game that elevates him as one of the best

love and passion for the game that elevates him as one of the best lacrosse players in the state.’ Patrick Tierney lacrosse players in the state.” Griffin admits he had trouble giving up the ball before this season. “I had a good year,” he said. “I led the team in assists and that was the biggest part for me making myself better this year. Last year and my freshman year I didn’t have as many assists and I probably could have. “I took more shots and held onto the ball when I could have passed it. This year I had my head up better and move it around better.” Moving the ball around was no easy adjustment for Griffin. “At first it was difficult but once I noticed the right moments to be moving the ball around, it not only helped my team score more by getting other players goals but it also freed me up more because they were more worried about other players being scoring threats and not just me,” he said. Griffin will be playing for the Denver Elite club team this summer and hopes to improve on his face-off techniques. “I’m going to try to get better on face offs this summer,” Griffin said. “Usually I don’t take very many of them in the club season. Every summer we play in a very high level in the tournaments we go to with Denver Elite so hopefully I can get a few more face offs to help my game there.”

Bike Continued from Page 1

“They call this the unofficial first start to the biking season,” said Lausman, who rode the 32-mile course. “It’s always beautiful in Castle Rock and I do it every year. This is usually my first big ride of the year. This is always well organized and everything is really well done here and that’s what makes it so nice. “There’s just an excitement about being here. There are tons of bikers all over, there’s great energy and a good feel. That’s what gets me ready for the season. I’m primed and ready to go mentally and physically for a good year.” Jonah and LuAnne Sperando of Colorado Springs rode 62 miles on a tandem bike. “It’s something fun that we can do together,” related Jonah Sperando. “And the tandem bike, we think is more fun than a single bike. The hills are more challenging but that makes it more rewarding. Communication is key. We wear headsets, kind of like you see on motorcycles. We can sort of plan our steps along the way. In 14 years of riding a tandem we haven’t had

too many arguments. We have witnessed a fair amount of arguments on a tandem but we’ve been fortunate. “We enjoyed the atmosphere with all the folks out. It’s early in the summer and it’s a way to get out and get motivated early in the season. It motivates you perhaps for the rest of the summer. We had a lot of fun.” Reagan Benger literally got to ride the 32-mile course. Reagan is 21-months old and rode in a trailer behind her Dad’s bike. Chris Benger of Highlands Ranch is an avid cyclist who plans to race in the Ride The Rockies and his wife Monica accompanies him but usually doesn’t ride except for in events like the Elephant Rock Ride. “I ride all the time,” said Chris. “This is my hobby. I do it all the time. I’ll do the Ride the Rockies next week. It was a chance to get Reagan out and ride in the trailer. It was tough pulling it uphill and into a head wind.” Monica claimed everybody had fun on the ride. “Reagan slept for a while,” she said. “It was fun. It was a family day. I’m the one cheering at the end on the Ride the Rockies. I’m not riding that.”
