Free summer lunch gets bigger Kids get meals in program started by former teacher By Virginia Grantier

vgrantier@ourcoloradonews.com Her children can have milk with their cereal, but can’t have additional milk during the day as a beverage. The current family budget doesn’t allow that. They are to drink water during the day and they get tea at night, said Dyan Cantelmi, 37, of Castle Rock. But this summer, there’s more milk. And instead of just a peanut butter sandwich for lunch, this Castle Rock family is also getting

fresh fruits and vegetables and a variety of entrees and milk — regular and chocolate, too. That’s because her children eat at the free summer lunch program started by former high school teacher Susan Meeker of Castle Rock and sponsored by the Zonta Club of Douglas County. On the menu this day was a bagel with pizza filling, broccoli with dressing, orange slices and milk, which the kids ate at picnic tables in Centennial Park next to Castle Rock’s Burgess Memorial Pool, 22 N. Gilbert St. After lunch, the kids participated in a project with a local artist. Some days, Douglas County librarians lead activities. Helping Meeker are volunteers from various churches, plus high school students and others, and the town has given a couple grants — $500 this year. “For me, it’s really transformational,” Denise Johnston said about volunteering. “It’s sacred time.” Lunch continues on Page 9

Town gives initial OK to retail deal Proposed development stirs concern for Outlets By Virginia Grantier

vgrantier@ourcoloradonews.com Not everyone is sure they’re happy about a proposed 200-acre Castle Rock retail project that would be located next to the Outlets at Castle Rock. At up to 900,000 square feet, it would be twice as large as the outlet mall. Alison Towe, the Outlets’ general manager, told Castle Rock Town Council July 2

that while the mall generally applauds and supports more development, “We do have some concerns. “It would not be prudent to place two regional outlet centers side by side,” she said. A legal representative for the outlets’ owner, California-based Craig Realty Group, told the council that it’s rare for outlet malls to be within 50 miles of each other. “We’re very concerned,” the representative said. The town council later voted 7-0 to give initial approval to a proposed private/ public partnership with the developer of the proposed project, Greenwood Village-

based Alberta Development Partners LLC, which is the creator of various projects in Denver and elsewhere including The Streets at Southglenn in Centennial. Don Provost, Alberta’s founder, said in an interview he isn’t planning at this time for the development to be an outlet center, but doesn’t rule it out. “I’m not restricting my property,” he said. As an example, he said that just because someone builds a grocery store somewhere, it doesn’t mean someone else Retail continues on Page 9

Douglas County’s unemployment rate has dipped to 5.8 percent, the lowest it has been since the conclusion of the fourth quarter in 2008. The number comes as great news for the county, which just released its 2013 firstquarter data days after the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics put out its year-to-year statistics that showed Douglas County as having the seventh-largest increase in employment from the end of 2011 to the end of 2012, out of the 328 largest counties in the United States. Douglas County increased its total number of jobs to 98,500, up 5,000 from a year ago, a 5.1 percent increase. The study also showed the county as second in average weekly wage increase of the 328 counties — which account for 71.3 percent of all jobs and 77 percent of all wages in the country. Leading the way in weekly wage increase was California’s San Mateo County, which saw a 107.3 percent bump, vaulting from $1,563 per week per person to $3,240. Douglas County workers saw an average increase of 48 percent, increasing from $1,075 per week in 2011 to $1,591 in 2012. Wages for No. 3, the independent city of Virginia Beach, climbed only 13.3 percent. Yet while the $516 increase appears to be an astounding one, according to Douglas County spokeswoman Wendy Holmes, it is skewed by the fact that wages increased 362 percent for the industry of “management of companies and enterprises.” “When you remove that group, wages in Douglas County are only up 7.9 percent,” Holmes said, pointing to the other 18 industries that were weighed. Still, that is a positive sign for a county that between the fourth quarters in 2010 and 2011 ranked No. 318 with an 8.6 decrease in wages, all industries considered. The county only had three industries that were down, and with the addition of Jobs continues on Page 9

Love planted here sprouts in Africa On an unseasonably cold April day three years ago, snow broke from the sky and chilled business for a Castle Rock garage sale. But high school student Hanna Tenerowicz and her friends in the French Honor Society slapped high fives in jubilation. They had raised $150, enough to pay for two Congolese girls to stay in school another year and lessen their risk of being married at 13 or 14 in exchange for money to feed their families. “They were just so excited that we raised enough to sponsor a girl,” said Anne Damanti, Hanna’s French teacher at Castle View High School. But Hanna, 19, a wisp of a young woman who just completed her freshman year at Wellesley College near Boston, wants to do more. Two weeks ago she left for the Democratic Republic of Congo to document the lives of schoolgirls, bring back their hopes and ideas for community transformation, and establish connections to help those dreams come true. “Gender equality makes a difference,” Hanna, whose soft voice conveys conviction with quiet, deep passion, said before leaving. “It’s a domino effect on all kinds of things.” The story of how this came to be — that a girl so shy Anne often couldn’t hear her speak in class has grown into a young woman daring to change lives — converges on a shared connection to the French language and a motivation to help. It is a story of compassion, determination and, quite simply, courage. Because it takes bravery to stretch beyond the familiar, to push cultural boundaries, to try to make a difference in a world so big and complicated we sometimes wonder whether what we do matters.

Finally, perhaps most importantly, it is a story of empowerment. And it begins with Sandra Bea, who emigrated to Colorado in 2001 from the French-speaking D.R. Congo to continue her studies in education. A French teacher, she graduated from Metropolitan State University of Denver and today is dean of students at Global Village Academy, a language immersion school in Denver. The daughter of an engineer of a local mining company in MbujiMayi, the country’s third largest city, Sandra grew up without worries: “I was eating three times a day; I went to school with a car. I grew up really easily. It was not hard like the other girls are facing right now. We never had any conversation about ‘You are going to get married in two days because we don’t have the money.’” It wasn’t until she was 22 and student teaching in her former high school that she understood the reality. Every two weeks, it seemed, another student would leave. They were, she learned, getting married. “Why?” she asked. “Because, Madam, we are not like you,” they told her. “You can afford it. We cannot afford it.” “That,” Sandra said, “broke my heart.” So, four years ago, she founded the nonprofit Muanjadi Organization, a women’s empowerment project that helps girls complete their high school education and

avoid early arranged marriages. “For many parents in the Congo, marrying off their daughters constitutes a source of revenue in a country where people live with less than $1 a day with a GDP per capita of $300,” Sandra writes on the organization’s website. Through fundraising and donations, the organization — whose name means Brave Woman — provides tuition and supplies for girls in seventh through 12th grades at the same school Sandra attended. Cost for one girl for one year of high school: $75. Cost for one year of college: $350. Anne, originally from Belgium, met Sandra and learned about Muanjadi at a state world language conference three years ago. She brought the idea back to her French Honor Society, which was looking for a community service project. Students learned how most girls eat just one meal a day and how the school has no water or electricity. They compared the cost of one year of high school to what teens here might spend on fancy jeans or a Starbucks coffee habit. “That’s not a lot to have the freedom to actually go to school and try to be something,” Anne said. That, Hanna said, coupled with the specter of forced marriage, “was a pretty powerful thing to learn about.” Last school year, Muanjadi sponsored 100 girls, 11 of them thanks to Castle View. The honor society, which has corresponded with the girls through letters, phone and Skype, also is sponsoring a student in college — one of the girls it began sponsoring in high school three years ago. Other organization sponsors include Kent Denver Academy, Metro State, Col-

orado State University, a lawyers’ organization and many individuals and families. But Hanna hopes to take the program one step further. Her new project is Portrait of a Brave Woman. Accompanied by Sandra, she has spent the past two weeks interviewing — in French — and filming girls at the school about their lives, but also about their ideas to implement change in their communities. She plans to share the mini-documentaries with artists who will be encouraged to create paintings about a particular girl whose story connects with them. Proceeds from the sale of those paintings will go toward the girls’ personal and community goals, such as becoming a nurse or training midwives to decrease the high infant mortality rate. The objectives are several: to empower Congolese girls, improve their communities and create meaningful cross-cultural connections with Western artists and buyers. “I hope community improvement brought about by women’s ideas will help to create more positive and respectful attitudes towards women in Mbuji-Mayi,” Hanna, also an artist, said. And “I hope the project empowers the girls themselves by helping them to personally make a difference.” Her dream is unquestionably big. But, Anne said, “There is nothing, anymore, that she can’t do.” Hanna’s visit, Sandra said, is the concrete realization of what dreams and hard work can accomplish. And having someone their age talk to them and share ideas with them is inspirational: “You Healey continues on Page 9

County gets land to complete trail system Local sections of long route coming together By Ryan Boldrey

rboldrey@ourcoloradonews. com Ten years after the vision of a multi-purpose trail from Wyoming to New Mexico was put into action, Douglas County has now acquired all the necessary land to piece together an unbroken trail corridor linking Arapahoe and El Paso counties. With the recent acquisitions of the 26-acre Martinez property east of the Tomah Road exit — just north of Larkspur — off Interstate 25, as well as the Iron Horse Open Space to the north, the county now owns all the necessary land to link the Cherry Creek Trail at the Arapahoe border to the Greenland Open Space Trail to the south. The Colorado Front Range

With the acquisition of the 26-acre Martinez property off Tomah Road north of Larkspur, Douglas County now owns all the land along the Colorado Front Range Trail from Columbine Open Space south to the El Paso County line. Photo by Ryan Boldrey Trail, which could someday connect 15 cities, 14 counties and many smaller towns and communities, expects to span 876 miles once it is complete. Spearheaded by Colorado Parks and Wildlife, the project has over 500 stakeholders, including federal agen-

cies and communities along the trail, working together to complete the vision. “Douglas County actually has a fairly large chunk of it already developed,” said Cheryl Matthews, Douglas County open space director. “We still have to get from

Columbine Open Space, which is about six miles south of Castle Rock, into Castle Rock someday in the future, but in the meantime, we now have that final link to get from Columbine to the El Paso County line.” The Greenland Open Space Trail on the south end of the county already connects to the New Santa Fe Trail, which runs south through El Paso County, 43 miles down to Fountain. Once Douglas County develops all of the land it has acquired into trails one will be able to get to Fountain up into Denver County, utilizing eventual connections from the Greenland trail to the Plum Creek, Castle Oaks and Cherry Creek trails. There is still one other plot the county hopes to obtain that will allow it connect the Plum Creek Trail going west to the High Line Canal, Platte Canyon and Chatfield trails, and connecting to the 470 Trail, which will give hikers and bikers the option of going

east or west on the Colorado Front Range Trail while inside Douglas County. For now, Matthews said, there is excitement in having that spine in place to run the trail through the county. As far as how quickly the necessary links get developed, she says a master plan process will begin this summer and the hope is that some of the trail work will begin in 2014. “It is going to depend a lot on funding,” she said, adding that the county will apply for grant funding. “We could do it all in one year if we get enough money.” The Douglas County commissioners approved the $675,000 purchase of the Martinez Property June 23, which includes the 26 acres of land, a 3,834-square-foot home that could be used for a variety of purposes, a 560-squarefoot equipment building and 27 acre-feet of adjudicated water rights for the portion of East Plum Creek that runs through the property.

Castle Rock puts off talk of tax, fee cuts Revenue tied to sales is crucial to budget

‘I’ve always wished for some way of taking care of fixed-income people. Water is a necessity ... ’

By Virginia Grantier

vgrantier@ourcoloradonews.com There won’t be any reductions in taxes or fees for Castle Rock residents and developers — at least not in the near future. “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” said Castle Rock Mayor Paul Donahue, after hearing a staff report July 2 on possible tax-reduction options that he felt could have minimal benefits for taxpayers, but potentially major impacts on the town’s budget. Council members agreed with him to wait and revisit the tax-reduction topic in possibly six months or next year. Results of a recent survey of Castle Rock residents showed a strong satisfaction with town services, but also showed some interest in tax and fee reduction, particularly in water rates, Castle Rock Town

Joe Procopio, town councilmember Manager Mark Stevens said at the council meeting. Stevens, presenting the staff report, said the town currently has the lowest property tax in the south Denver metro area — so reducing the property tax rate 10 percent would only mean a $4 reduction for $300,000 house. He said the town’s strategy has been that it can keep property taxes low by getting more of its revenue from sales tax, much of which is generated from non-residents shopping at the Outlets at Castle Rock and other businesses.

The town’s 4 percent sales tax is on the higher end, but “that’s intentional,” Stevens said. Stevens said sales tax is the town’s largest source of income and cutting it would have the “biggest financial impact to the town.” Regarding various town fees, most are tied to the direct cost of providing a service, Stevens said. Some council members expressed interest in looking into ways to tweak the town’s water utility bill. Water users pay a fixed amount, $52, which is set at that rate to pay

Schools gain from experience People 60 and older work during academic year By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com Fifty-five years after he first started teaching, Gordon Goudy is still in the classroom. The 77-yearold Acres Green resident, among 100 enrolled in the Senior Employee Program, helps Acres Green Elementary fourth-grade math students four days a week for a few hours each time. “I love it,” Goudy said. “I love working with the kids to bring out their potential, seeing them make progress. “It keeps my mind going, keeps me from getting stagnant. Besides that, my wife likes it because it gets me out of the house.” The Douglas County School District program, launched in 1989, has a permanent waiting list. Seniors earn minimum wage and work a maximum of 170 hours during the school year, usually in a school near their home, often in a school their grandchildren attend. Goudy and about 25 other participants gathered in Castle Rock July 2 for the annual Senior Employee Program appreciation event, this year including a free magic performance at Castle Rock’s Theatre of Dreams. It’s a small token of appreciation for a huge amount of work, said program coordinator Stacey Briggs. “The average value of a volunteer hour is over $20 an hour, so $7.76 doesn’t even come close to it,” she said. “With budget cuts, I’ve had more requests the last couple years than I did when it started. The schools are thrilled to have them.”

Magician Joe Givan and Gary Brown, right, help ready magician Carol Massie for the finale during a July 2 Theatre of Dreams performance in Castle Rock. They appeared at an appreciation event for Douglas County Schools’ Senior Employee Program. Photo by Jane Reuter Seniors are thrilled, too. “Everyone wants to feel like they’re making a difference and I think they really do,” Briggs said. “Plus seniors tell me that little extra money every month really helps them out. The only sad part is there are so many people that would like to be involved and I don’t have enough spaces.” Those who earn a coveted spot in the program’s ranks typically keep it. “I have some that have been in for 25 years,” Briggs said. “They have to be over 60, so I have some that are over 85 years old that are still in the program. If the schools are happy and they’re happy, they can stay in the program as long as they like.” Ruth Baxter just finished her

second year with the program as a reading tutor at Parker’s Mountain View Elementary. It’s a natural next step for a woman who spent much of her career helping improve children’s literacy. “I have this wonderful passion for struggling readers,” she said. “I love the interaction with the children.” Sadie Bush is new to the program, just completing her first year working in the library at Castle Rock’s Clear Sky Elementary. She’ll be back in August to resume her duties. “I retired after 40 years as a nurse; I didn’t want any more nursing,” she said. “A friend of mine was doing this and told me; I’m very grateful to her. I love my job.”

the costs of the water system, and in addition, they also pay a variable amount based on usage. “I’ve always wished for some way of taking care of fixed-income people,” said Councilmember Joe Procopio. “Water is a necessity …” Donahue said he thinks officials need to focus on the big picture of what’s happening in the town. Donahue referred to the costs of ensuring the town’s future water needs and other large projects, and said he didn’t think a majority of residents would mind not having a minimal tax cut if the town continues to spend the money wisely. He said he worried that cuts might not have a significant impact now, but may down the road. He said he’s not hearing an outcry from residents about taxes and fees, and also had another priority in mind. “If we have money available, let’s replenish reserves. … Let’s make sure we’ve got money for that,” he said.

Castle RoCk news in a huRRy Bike park opening July 13

Grand opening of the new session zone at Rhyolite Bike Park — which includes rollers, jumps, berms and a wall ride — is set for 1 to 4 p.m. July 13 at the park. The celebration will include exhibitors, a DJ, giveaways and a chance to try the new zone, according to a news release. Progressive Trail Design LLC constructed the zone this spring, and volunteers gave more than 140 hours to perfect the new elements. A new irrigation system with a series of quick-couplers will allow volunteers to attach a hose to water down features as part of routine maintenance. There are ongoing opportunities to volunteer at the park. Castle Rock Bike and Ski has adopted the park and helped organize the Rhyolite Dirt Crew, a volunteer group specifically dedicated to maintaining this park. They will meet on the first and third Tuesdays of the month from August through October. For more, contact Lisa Sorbo at lsorbo@CRgov.com or 303814-7456

Man wins military police award

Staff Sgt. William R. Veith, 25, who grew up in the Castle Rock area, received a “Commandant’s 100” award on June 18 in Fort Leavenworth, Kan.. The award is given to the top 100 military police soldiers — noncommissioned officers and officers in the Military Police Corps Regiment — who distinguish themselves by meritorious achievement or meritorious service.

Company Commander Capt. Michael Imdieke, who officiated at the ceremony, praised Veith for his knowledge, experience, impact and character. He recalled that Veith, who was deployed in support of Operation New Dawn in Iraq in 2011, was instrumental in dramatically reducing the number of incidents that required use of force. “This is the same guy that volunteered to stay behind in Iraq with an unknown return date so the rest of the unit could redeploy and be with their families,” Imdieke said. “He was one of 15 soldiers that volunteered to stay behind.” Veith, son of Rick and Cindy Veith of Greenland, attended Larkspur Elementary School, Castle Rock Middle School and Douglas County High School, and graduated in 2005 from Eagle Academy.

Former mayor recognized

Castle Rock Town Council voted July 2 to make former Mayor Ray Waterman, who died in January, a recipient of the town Vision Cornerstone Award. The award honors residents who have made exceptional contributions to one of the town’s four vision cornerstones: town identity, community planning, community services and local economy. During Waterman’s tenure on town council, from 1987 to 1991 and from 2001 to 2006, he led the town through many important issues, such as securing long-term water solutions and the development of the Castle Rock Recreation Center, according to a news release.

tsSchool security ready for rollout

addi$674,000 ased

marshal program to outfit officers in ‘soft’ uniform

ay of saidBy Jane Reuter is ajreuter@ourcoloradonews.com

ed to Armed law enforcement officers will pen-spend about two hours each day in area o theelementary, middle and other school buildwaterings as part of the Douglas County School id heDistrict’s new school security program. ould The $674,000 marshal program, which f thelaunches in August with the start of the acaisely.demic year, was created in response to the haveSandy Hook Elementary School shootings n thein December.

The district budgeted $600,000 for the fromprogram’s first year. Seven charter schools o hadthat opted into the program are paying a total of $74,000. That $674,000 reimburses plen-the sheriff’s office and Castle Rock, Parker e gotand Lone Tree police departments for their

officers’ time. DCSD will pay the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office $361,000, Castle Rock $160,000, Parker $123,000 and Lone Tree police $30,000. The amounts are based on the number of schools in each jurisdiction. Lone Tree, for instance, has the fewest buildings to patrol, with just two elementary schools and an early childhood education center. While the original plan called for plainclothes officers, they’ll instead wear what officers describe as a “soft uniform” — including a shirt with a department insignia on the front and “police” or “sheriff” printed on the back — so school staff, students and other officers easily can identify them. “In talking with law enforcement, there was concern about other agencies responding in the event of an emergency, and not being able to identify law enforcement from another threat,” DCSD Chief Opera-

tions Officer Bill Moffitt said. “So the agreement we landed on was a soft uniform.” Because officers will report to schools in unmarked cars, those outside the building won’t know when law enforcement is on campus. Chief Jeff Streeter said officers will spend an hour every morning and afternoon in each of the city’s three school buildings. They’ll interact with students and staff, which Streeter said isn’t unlike their previous school visits. “Lone Tree has always participated with the school district in training classes, DARE being one of them, weekly or every other week,” he said. “So now we’ll be there on a daily basis. “I think it’s a good program. I think it does give us another layer of safety.” The sheriff’s office, meanwhile, is responsible for 38 charter, middle and elementary schools. Like Lone Tree, the office doesn’t plan to hire additional officers to do

the work. “We have a little under 300 sworn officers,” sheriff’s spokesman Sgt. Ron Hanavan said. “Out of those 300, people can basically on their days off sign up for extra duty. There wouldn’t be enough funding to hire additional officers. We’re doing it for us in the most cost-effective way.” Lone Tree won’t use patrol officers, instead relying on those who work in the investigations division. The Parker Police Department plans to hire an additional officer to help implement the program. Castle Rock is relying on existing staff this year, but will hire and train two more officers by the start of the 2014-15 academic year, according to town spokeswoman Caroline Kipp. “We’re really confident this is going to be successful,” Moffitt said. “I think it’s going to be an excellent additional lawyer of security that really strikes a partnership in the community and the county as a whole.”

Wildlife officers hesitate to tranquilize animal

By Chris Michlewicz

c m i c h l e w i c z @ o u rc o l o r a d o news.com Wildlife officers are monitoring the condition of a deer seen wandering a Parker neighborhood with an arrow in its back. The young buck has been spotted by concerned residents in the Robinson Ranch subdivision several times since late June, and a Colorado Division of Parks and Wildlife officer responded to the area June 28 and caught a glimpse of the wounded animal. Jennifer Churchill, spokeswoman for the state division, said officers are reluctant to intervene unless the deer suffered a lifethreatening injury. The animal has not been slowed by the arrow, which appears to have punctured the deer’s hide. Tranquilization can be stressful and even lead to death, and is a last resort in this case, Churchill said. “We’re not sure if it’s going to break off, but we will keep eye on it,” she said. “If it starts to fail in health, then it may be appropriate to step in.” The Parker Police Department, which has received numerous

A young buck has been seen roaming the Robinson Ranch neighborhood with an arrow in its back since late June. Wildlife officers are reluctant to intervene because the deer does not appear to have suffered a life-threatening injury. Courtesy photo phone calls about the deer, said the animal is “very mobile.” The Colorado Division of Parks and Wildlife is asking residents to call 303-291-7227 if the buck begins limping or looks to be in bad health. People are being asked not to approach or attempt to capture the deer. The police department is hoping the public can provide tips

that will lead to the apprehension of the person who shot the deer with the arrow. That person could face a long list of poaching-related charges, Churchill said. Animal cruelty charges generally don’t apply in wildlife cases. Tips can be submitted to the Parker Police Department Animal Services Officer at 303-805-6631 or bdeyoe@parkeronline.org.

Nine out of 10 Castle Pines citizens polled in the city’s first citizen survey said they viewed overall quality of life there as “good” or “excellent.” “Overall quality of life, the image and reputation of Castle Pines and the city as a place to live and raise children all were rated favorably,” according to a summary statement in a survey conducted by Boulder-based National Research Center Inc. But concerns showed up when asked about some aspects of city services and recreational opportunities. “Respondents rated recreational and cultural opportunities lower than other communities in the nation,” according to the survey results. The most popular answer given by the about 1,400 citizens who completed the survey about what they liked most about Castle Pines was the city’s location — and beyond that, safety and the overall image and reputation of the city were top answers. Very few indicated that cost of living is what they liked most about living there, according to the survey results. High on the wish list of citizens was having a recreation center.

But Castle Pines Councilmember Kathy DesRosiers said in a recent interview that she noticed there was a steep drop-off in the number of citizens willing to pay for a recreation center. Most suggested support of user fees, but only 55 percent supported a sales tax increase and 31 percent supported a property tax increase. “Everyone wants a rec center,” said Castle Pines Councilmember Kim Hoffman. “But there are not enough funds.” More than half of the respondents also wanted to see more “breakfast/cafes and hardware stores.” The survey indicated that more than 80 percent of respondents rated services such as the fire district, sheriff’s department, drinking water, parks, library and street signage as excellent or good. But in the government performance category, 51 percent thought the overall direction the city was taking was either “fair” or “poor.” In the list of suggestions and complaints from survey takers, the need for a rec center and more retail stores came up frequently, as did regrets that Castle Pines ever became a city. Hoffman said she thinks citizens might assume a project they have concerns about — like a road being torn up — is a city project, but it’s actually being done being done by a homeowners association. She said there’s still not enough communication. “We’re a ‘baby’ city … still trying to figure things out,” she said.

SHERIFF’S REPORT Missing dogs raise care issue

Douglas County sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to Tammy Lane in Parker on June 23 and spoke with a homeowner who had just returned from a three-day trip to Texas. The homeowner had left two dogs, a 65-pound German shepherd mix named Emily, and a 130-pound black lab named Jules, in their fenced yard with food, water and shelter, and returned home to find them missing. The homeowner was under the impression the dogs had been stolen, as she said: “They do not run away and had no way to get out of the yard.” On June 24, the case was closed as a neighbor who had found the dogs running free, and taken them in, made contact with the homeowner and returned them. “We suggest that people either kennel their dogs or have a friend or loved one look after them and take care of them if they are going to be away,” said Sgt. Ron Hanavan, spokesman for the sheriff’s office. “Especially with the hot temperatures, dogs that are left outside should not be left unattended. They don’t have the ability to monitor their own body temperature in the heat and aren’t always going to go to the shade even if it is there.” Temperatures reached 93 degrees in Parker during that three-day span.

Vehicle break-ins continue

There were numerous reports of vehicles being broken into throughout Douglas County between the dates of June 21 and 28. Items stolen consisted of

The reports included a vehicle parked outside in the 10200 block of Park Meadows Drive in Lone Tree on June 21; four vehicles in the 9600 block of Timberhawk Circle in Highlands Ranch, overnight on June 24-25; a vehicle parked in an open garage in the 10600 block of Ashfield Street in Highlands Ranch on June 25; a vehicle parked in an open garage in the 100 block of Prairie Ridge Road in Highlands Ranch on June 26; a vehicle parked outside in the 500 block of Villa Drive in Castle Pines on June 26; a vehicle parked outside in the 9400 block of McShane Court in Parker on June 26; two vehicles parked outside at different residences in the 8400 block of Tanglewood Street in Highlands Ranch on June 27; and a vehicle parked in an open garage in the 4500 block of Lyndenwood Point in Highlands Ranch on June 28.

Rally calls for immigration reform Activists lean on GOP to back bill that passed Senate

‘The message we want to get across is that this is

By Vic Vela

vvela@ourcoloradonews.com A group of immigration activists rallied in Denver on July 2 to call on Colorado’s Republican U.S. representatives to support an immigration-reform bill that recently passed the Senate. “We are calling on our Republican congressional delegation leaders to step up, to exercise leadership, to show bipartisan willingness, to follow the will of the people of Colorado,” said Julien Ross of the Colorado Immigrant Rights Coalition, during a rally that was held outside of Denver’s Republican Party headquarters. The group waved Americans flags and held signs that signaled its desire for immigration reform at the federal level. Immigration reform is high on President Obama’s second-term priority list, but it’s an effort that faces an unknown future in the Republicancontrolled House. The bill — which passed the Democratic-controlled Senate by a 68-32 vote on June 27 — overhauls immigration laws by allowing a pathway to citizenship for about 11 million undocumented workers. It also puts provisions in place that strengthen border security. Many House Republicans have expressed concern over security issues in the bill, and some party members are opposed to a bill that they believe grants amnesty for those living here illegally. House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, has said through national media outlets that he will not bring the bill up for a vote if the

Ezequiel Ramirez of Highlands Ranch speaks in support of immigration reform in front of Denver’s Republican Party headquarters on July 2. Photo by Vic Vela majority Republicans in his caucus do not support it. The purpose of the Denver rally, which was organized by Coloradans for Citizenship Now, was to put pressure on Colorado’s four House Republicans — Reps. Mike Coffman, Doug Lamborn, Cory Gardner and Scott Tipton — to support the Senate bill. Through a statement issued after the rally, Democratic Rep. Ed Perlmutter joined rally organizers in calling on House Republicans to pass immigration reform, saying that by allowing undocumented

persons a pathway to citizenship it would “lead to increased job growth and a stronger economy.” “I hope House Republican leadership will work with Democrats in a bipartisan way to protect our borders and ensure those who are working hard, paying taxes, getting an education, learning English and not committing crimes are able to achieve their American Dream as a citizen of our country,” Perlmutter said. Colorado House Republicans are concerned that the Senate bill doesn’t go far enough in strength-

ening border security. Coffman said in a statement that in 1986, when Congress passed a major immigration reform bill, the promises made “on enforcement and border security were not promises kept.” “I will look for solutions in the House that will provide for the reforms necessary to not only secure our borders but to verify that they remain secure,” Coffman said in the statement. Coffman spokesman Dustin Zvonek did not wish to comment beyond what was in the statement.

Rally speakers brought up Coffman’s upcoming re-election race, a contest that surely will receive national attention. “Latinos came out in record numbers in the last election,” said Olivia Mendoza of the Colorado Latino Forum. “This is just the beginning.” Ezequiel Ramirez, 19, of Highlands Ranch, voted for the first time last year, and is one of Coffman’s constituents. Though he was born in the U.S., his parents were not. “The message we want to get across is that this is potentially going to help out a lot of people,” Ramirez said. “It’s going to help us become a better country. There’s a lot ofdon’t people counting on (Coffman)chan and it’s really important for him to W to do put his vote into this.

Castle Pines positions are up for fall election Candidates can get info from city clerk’s office By Virginia Grantier

vgrantier@ourcoloradonews.com Three Castle Pines council seats are up for election this November, and candidates are needed. Councilmember John Ewing resigned recently as he is moving out of Castle Pines, and Councilmembers Kim Hoffman and Kathy DesRosiers are moving on to other interests. Other posts up for re-election are mayor, treasurer and city clerk. Mayor Jeffrey Huff and Treasurer Mark Shiveley said recently they haven’t decided yet whether to run. But Shiveley said his usual approach to elected positions is to serve for one term and then let someone else have an opportunity. City Clerk Jaime Edwards, who has served since former city clerk Dan Schatz resigned in November 2012, wants to change hats and run for council. She said she loves being the city clerk, but she doesn’t have a vote and thinks that if she were John Ewing’s replacement in Ward 3 she could make a “substantial impact.” She’d like to be a voice for young families there, and work on getting a recreation center built and getting more businesses in the city. People interested in running need to circulate a nomination petition and acquire signatures, said Castle Pines Deputy City

Clerk Diane Spomer. Petitions can be picked up beginning Aug. 6 at Spomer’s office at 7501 Village Square Drive, Suite 100, in Castle Pines. The deadline for returning petitions to her office is 5 p.m. Aug. 26. DesRosiers said in a recent interview that she ran basically on one issue. She wanted to squelch the effort by the previous city council to dissolve the Castle Pines Metropolitan District. Dissolving the district and having the new city take on water and wastewater and other responsibilities wasn’t popular with most citizens, she said. DesRosiers said she helped accomplish that goal, so her main reason for serving is done. Hoffman, representing Ward 2, said she is at the end of a second term, and thinks she has put in enough time, but that there’s still a lot to do. Hoffman said she doesn’t think the 5-year-old city has accomplished its initial vision of incorporation — which was to integrate services and reduce fees and taxes. “I believe that will happen someday,” she said. However, a lot has stood in the way so far. She said that in her first term, she put in 40hour weeks to help create the new city’s first ordinances and resolutions, but between all the foundational work and changes to board members and mayors, progress has been stymied to try to integrate the city’s 32 homeowners associations, metro district and city services into one city. For more information about running for office, call Spomer at 303-705-0226 or email her at diane.spomer@castlepinesgov.com

The council’s July 2 vote approved the conceptual financial structure and preparation of financial agreements that the council will consider for final approval at a special meeting Aug. 27. If approved in August, Alberta is expected to close on the 200 acres, located just north and west of the current outlet center, and now owned by Jack Vickers, developer of Castle Pines. The town’s staff report states that Alberta “would be responsible for all private costs and financial risk and would be responsible for implementing the project.” The town, in this conceptual deal, would share 27.5 percent of its sales tax revenues with Alberta for up to 25 years. It’s proposed that this revenue, as well as fees imposed on retail customers would be used to pay off a bond issue to be levied on the property’s metropolitan district to fund the project’s infrastructure costs.

The result, she said, has created an “upward spiral” that has continuously helped land large corporations such as Visa USA Inc., Redwood Trust and Charles Schwab, all of which don’t even factor into the recent data as they are still on the way in. “So much of it is about the attitude,” Repella said. “When there is a government jurisdiction that is difficult to work with, businesses tell each other, word gets out, and that jurisdiction gets a bad reputation. “When you have a government jurisdiction that is great to work with, they share that with each other as well, and that positive reputation pays off.

Lunch Continued from Page 1

This is the program’s third year. It serves about 65 kids from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. through Aug. 2 — and is open to any child regardless of family income. That’s because of U.S. Census data showing that more than 50 percent of children in this swath of downtown Castle Rock are eligible for free or reduced lunches. Meeker got the idea to start this after hearing that Colorado leads the nation in the number of children living in poverty.

all these businesses tell me; it is shocking that it’s rare, but it is rare.” Whether it is speeding up the permit process or simply listening to the needs and desires of prospective companies, Repella said the county is doing everything it can to bring business in and keep that probusiness momentum going. “We are in a very healthy position,” she said. “But what really matters to me is that people can provide for their families. That’s what all this data means. You can look at all the numbers and you can beat yourself in the chest, but knowing that people are doing well, that’s really what matters in the end.”

She started wondering what kids do when out of school and school lunches aren’t available. “These are our kids,” she said. Now, there are lunches. She contracts with the Douglas County School District Nutrition Services to make the lunches at a local school’s kitchen, pays $3.15 for each, and then is reimbursed by the federal government. Initially to get customers, she knocked on doors at nearby apartment buildings, where she often found young kids home alone, in places with no bicycles and no books. One 12-year-old girl said that sometimes at home she has to wait for dinner when there isn’t food for lunch. “We love it,” she said about Meeker’s program.

Don’t let a second go unappreciated Have you ever paid attention when someone is counting for a specific purpose or during a game or competition, and as they near the point of where they are counting toward, there is a discernable difference in the tonality and pace? If they are counting to 10 for instance it may sound something like 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 888, 999999, 10. What is it about the approach to those final numbers that has us draw them out, elongate them for dramatic purposes? We could be counting to 10, 50, 100, or any number for that matter, and just as we get close for some reason we end up with 95, 96, 9777, 988888, 999999999, 100. It’s not even the final number that gets the extra emphasis, I mean when we hit 10 or 100 we just say that number sharply and crisply, with absolute finality. It even happens when we do a countdown and reverse the order, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 333, 222222, 1111111, 0! Almost as if we are trying to extend or expand a timed event or task.

we are surrounded by our friends and family and enjoying our time together while we play. I like those other numbers too, all of those in-between numbers. I like thinking about how I can make every second count. There are 86,400 seconds in each day, and it’s the same for each and every one of us. During a recent workout I noticed that I was actually counting my repetitions in much the same way I described above. Particularly when I was doing a particular exercise and had to hold a position for a specified period of time. As I was counting

Flesh is weak, spirit isn’t far behind Ninety-year old Constance Rolon cried when Denver police officers welcomed her back into her home. Constance had been taken to a motel by the officers two weeks earlier because they determined that her house was uninhabitable. I have seen this before. My good friend Ruth Todd lost her husband and most of her five senses, and housework didn’t get done. Constance’s daughter died, and her son Paul vanished 13 years ago. A 2001 Westword article, “Home Alone,” details Paul’s mysterious disappearance when he was vacationing in Crete. Constance’s caregiver was gone. Little by little, her home went undone. Ruth’s home went that way too. Ruth was 96 when she died in a hospice, and thinking we were married. Relatives were anxious for her money, but not to help out with her estate. Ruth’s brilliant paintings went to the Kirkland Museum. Her furniture was sold or donated. The rest, including an empty bowling ball bag, went into one of the two dumpsters that I filled. Ruth spent a lot of time in ambulances near the end of her life. She always took her resume with her. She was a beautiful New York model in the 1920s and 30s, and by the time she turned 87, when I met her, she was an invisible woman. When police officers made a welfare check on Constance they couldn’t get in the front door. “Trash and tangled possessions” blocked them. There were cats. Aren’t there always cats? Ruth had a cat named Sweet Pea. Sweet Pea was attached to Ruth and to no one else. Ruth had one cat after another. In succession, they showed up at her back door. Ruth let one in, and it stayed with her for the rest of its life. Then another one showed up. “How terribly strange to be 70.” Simon

and Garfunkel wrote that. I am a handful of years away from being strange. The truth is that I have been strange all along. No one wants to get older. We lose things and forget things. The crisp young woman who walked the high school halls is long gone. We can no longer talk like we once did. Words become wickets. No one pays attention to us. No one flirts. Ruth and I went grocery shopping. It took two hours. She held up the grapes. She looked at vegetables like she might be seeing them for the last time. “At roll call, I told the guys what I needed and they all volunteered and took a chore,” said Sgt. Kim Lovato of the District 1 station.” The officers replaced carpet and painted Constance’s walls. They took care of the cats. Ruth bent over to pick up a piece of paper on her front porch. She broke her hip, and didn’t come home for 40 days. She didn’t think she would ever come home. So I went to her house and took pictures. Sweet Pea showed up, out of nowhere, and she let me take a picture of her. I took the pictures to the nursing home and Ruth couldn’t stop crying. Then she held me. If 70 is strange, what is 90? I’m not sure I want to find out. Beautiful lives sometimes fade without grace. I looked at my father in a Michigan hospital and wanted him to come back and play catch with me. But he couldn’t do anything on his own. He Smith continues on Page 11

down in my head and neared the number zero, I literally found myself extending the final numbers just so I could work a little harder. Of course, I could have just as easily kept counting, but the effect of drawing out the countdown to zero seemed to motivate me just a little more. How many times during our day do we either rush to have our workday come to an end, wishing the seconds and minutes would tick by just a little faster? It’s almost like we are counting them, either counting them up or counting them down, but we are watching the clock either way. And it could also happen as we wish the evening chores would go by faster or our workouts would be over sooner. What would happen if we stopped wishing for our 86,400 seconds to fly by us each day and we focused on making the most out of every one of the seconds we are so blessed to enjoy? During the rush and crush of our lives it is so easy to get wrapped up in the moments that we forget seconds. And each second is so valuable. Just ask a profes-

sional football player or basketball player if they can win a game with only three seconds left on the game clock. Watch as top chefs compete on some of the Food Network shows like “Chopped” or “Master Chef” and how much they can accomplish in the final 30 seconds as they complete their dishes. Instead of counting up to a final number or counting down to zero, and instead of just emphasizing those final few seconds, try to remember just how important every second is and think of ways that you can and will make every second count. Are you managing the clock to maximize every second, or winning the game in the final three seconds with a “buzzer beater” all too often? Either way I would love to hear all about it at gotonorton@ gmail.com, and I hope this will be a better than good week for you.

Time to address parent concerns In a recent opinion piece, “Bogus claims ...,” Mr. Randy Reed claimed to be interested in the truth regarding the state of Douglas County School District. In the next breath he claims there is a “cottage industry of pro-union attack groups that have sprouted up across our community” without providing any concrete evidence of who these groups are and what proof he has of their association to the AFL-CIO or ACLU. The truth, Mr. Reed, is that these groups consist of parents who no longer have a voice in the Douglas County School District. Parents who moved to Douglas County with the hope of educating their children in one of the best school districts in the state. Instead they discover that class sizes have exploded and high school instructional time has been cut while the district is holding back vital resources and allowing its fund balance to quadruple. The variance between budget and actual expenditures is inexcusable and the ongoing $20 million surplus year after year demonstrates that cuts to our schools were unnecessarily made. Parents, often referred to as “customers” by the Board of Education, are discouraged by the actions of a school board that spends half of their time meeting behind closed doors and by a district that ignores the results of a parent survey showing that only 38 percent of parents are satisfied with the direction of the district. Many parents have tried addressing their concerns at board meetings and District Accountability Committee meetings, only to be ignored, intimidated or belittled.

Clearly, there is a problem in the school district — just read the paper week after week. Parents whose voices have been silenced will no longer sit idle while their childrens’ education is in jeopardy. Parentdriven groups like Strong Schools Coalition and Douglas County Parents have “sprouted up” because unlike Reed’s organization, parents are not flush with money to spend on robo calls and paid canvassers who distribute literature to virtually every citizen’s front door. Parents are hosting house parties through DCEdOutreach simply because they want a voice and their cries have gone unanswered. If Reed truly wants the truth about what is happening in Douglas County School District, simply restore parent voices. Reed’s refusal to acknowledge that a large number of parents have valid concerns leads me to believe that the truth may not be what he is truly seeking. Susan D. Meek is a former spokeswoman for the Douglas County School District who ran for a board seat and served as vice president of Strong Schools Coalition.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Schools are in good hands

I’ve been a resident of Douglas County for 35 years and I have two children, who attended our public schools from kindergarten through graduation. I, like many others, have been supportive of our district school board and administration’s innovative policies, which a recent Denver Post editorial said were “on the right track.” I applaud the district’s fiscal management that has recently allowed for all employees to receive a raise, while meeting federal and state restrictions for reserves and contingencies and keeping an emergency fund. The new high school class schedule has made important changes. It has reduced class sizes overall, created new electives, increased academic achievement, reduced absences and tardiness while allowing for flexibility, should there be there a drastic federal or state cut in school funding. Meanwhile, our teachers have worked with administrators to put together this year’s new teacher evaluation system. During the same period, teachers have been innovating and revamping their own curriculums. Other positives? The district maintains a 10 percent normal annual attrition rate for teachers that is actually lower than other local school districts and, recently, the Sunshine Review gave the Douglas County School District an A- transparency rating. Additionally, our district will have a school marshal plan in place next fall to make our children safer at school. The day of the “school factory” is ending. To compete globally, the premise of education needs to shift. Douglas County is heading in a good direction by moving toward a world-class education that is personalized to fit each child’s needs. Our board of education has set a good course. Charcie Russell Castle Rock

Big money is real ‘outside influence’

Randy Reed’s guest column is desperate to make people believe that the fight against the reforms in the Douglas County School District is driven by the union. He asks, “Do Douglas County Schools belong to us, or to liberal special-interest groups like the ACLU and the AFL-CIO?” That is an interesting question. Who does this school district belong to? Does it belong to the parents, students and teachers in Douglas County, or does it belong to outside interests with deep pockets? The outside interests I refer to are not the AFL-CIO or the ACLU. They are outside interests like Alex Cranberg and Ralph Nagel, of the Alliance for School Choice, who donated more than $20,000 to Doug Benevento and Meghann Silverthorn’s campaigns in 2009. Neither Cranberg nor Nagel is a resident of Douglas County. Alex Cranberg also donated $50,000 to the District’s legal fund for the voucher lawsuit. Additional donations have come from The Daniels Fund, in excess of $500,000, and the Walton Family Foundation at $300,000. The Daniels Fund has given the Douglas County school district $150,000 to create commercials promoting this school board and their reforms. Who is being influenced by outside interests? Does this school district belong to the Alliance for School Choice, The Daniels Fund and the Walton Family Foundation? Or does it belong to the parents, students and teachers who want a say in what is best for our kids and their education? I am a parent. I am not a union member, union representative or union operative. The union has nothing to do with my concern for the direction of the district. My concern has everything to do with my children, their education and the interests outside of Douglas County that are trying to influence it. Amy DeValk Highlands Ranch

Adult agendas trump students’ best interest

Regarding Randy Reed’s guest column in the June 27-28 editions:

Smith Continued from Page 10

couldn’t even talk with me. We see each other with quiet familiarity. But some of us are floating away while we’re still here, and go unnoticed. Ruth used to say, “Take me to Dr. Kev-

The big truth, Randy Reed, is that I am “red-in-the-face mad at the Dougco School Board and Administration.” I am a PARENT of Douglas County students. I am NOT the AFL-CIO, ACLU, nor any other union. The recent evaluation fiasco clearly demonstrates this leadership’s irresponsible actions. Rather than using its incomplete evaluation program as a pilot this year (as many school districts have done), Dougco leadership recklessly implemented an ill-conceived evaluation program a year before required by statute and tied all employee salaries to it before proving it to be valid or reliable. All done in an effort to pad resumes and make a name for themselves as the “national leader in public school innovation.” The big truth is that the audacious disregard of what is best for students in order to promote adults’ personal agendas is wreaking havoc in our public schools and makes this parent even more determined to get new leadership in the Douglas County School District. Wendy Vogel Highlands Ranch

Teachers make schools excellent

In response to Randy Reed’s guest column, “Bogus claims can’t hide school excellence,” if “Douglas County is one of the best school districts in America,” then why are only 14 percent of its teachers considered highly effective? The truth is that the teachers, not the school board, are responsible for the excellence in DCSD and always have been. Many teachers are not concerned about the union. But the new evaluation system is demoralizing and does not measure the impact teachers have in the classroom. If it did, it would be based on what actually goes on in the classroom — not paperwork. We need to get back to the days when every move made in schools was based on the question “Is that what’s best for kids?” Deborah Seaquist Highlands Ranch

Don’t let moneyed groups destroy our schools

With a school board election a few months away, Douglas County teachers continue to be vilified by anti-public education interests. The latest attack is Randy Reed’s opinion piece in the June 27-28 editions. What’s true is our children would not be doing so well, year in and year out, were it not for the dedication and commitment of the professionals in the classrooms. What’s also true is that in just a few short years, our current school board and influential members of our community (like Mr. Reed) have undone decades of good work. They’ve managed to bring politics into classrooms and our homes in a way a union never could. Mr. Reed runs the Douglas County Education Alliance. It has an important sounding name, with a seemingly innocuous website: www.studentsnotunions.com. But the Alliance is apparently nothing more than a front for a moneyed group supporting school privatization. The Alliance website was established by DC London, a paid political consulting organization from Phoenix. DC London provides a range of services, including: campaign and “grassroots” management; message and brand development; and lobbying. DC London was co-founded by Sean Noble and Elissa Scannell, former staff members of Arizona Republican Congressman John Shadegg. Mr. Noble is a prominent Koch brothers’ operative and self-admitted money launderer. He has a history of running conservative cash conduits with very deep pockets. As an example, during the 2010 elections, Mr. Noble funneled almost $55 million to two dozen dark money groups. Regardless of our political stripes (red, blue, green or rainbow), as parents we ought to ask: Why on God’s green earth is an Arizona-based, political consulting firm

orkian.” There were days, when nothing on her worked, that I wish I could have. “Bless your hearts, thank you, thank you,” Constance said to the officers. “We are such stuff as dreams are made on.” — The Tempest, Act 4, scene 1.

engaged in Douglas County school issues? What is Mr. Reed’s association with Noble and DC London? Why the focus on OUR district? Follow the money. Tony Peccolo Castle Rock

Reed’s claims are bogus

Regarding Randy Reed’s guest column in the June 27-28 editions: Randy Reed’s charges are bogus! Whatever happened to the non-partisan school board elections? There was a time when both major political parties sat on the board, working together for the best school district in the state. There were disagreements and they were worked out for the betterment of ALL concerned; teachers, staff, students, parents and the whole community. There was never the divisive, one-minded, secretive and political ideology there is now. The taxpayers’ money stayed in the district for kids and their education, not to pay an outrageous salary to the superintendent, or hire some Republican lawyer from Colorado Springs, or to private/religious schools. It is time for a new board to be elected. One that does not put their “spin” on what they want the community to hear. One that puts the district before their political beliefs, whether Republican or Democratic. Pat Nagorka Parker

Thank you, Randy Reed

Regarding Randy Reed’s guest column in the June 27-28 editions: Thanks for the enlightening trip into the minds of those supposedly in control of Douglas County Schools. You are a part of what’s going on there, you sense it isn’t working, and recognize it is beginning to fail. You see a chance to sound the alarm and become a hero. You follow your political instincts, find someone else to blame. You launch a particularly bitter denunciation of the district’s teacher union. Problem is, Mr. Reed, that the community knows that your villain has already been defanged and declawed. All our teachers have left is their voice. Maybe you could get a mass gag order to completely

silence them like you wish. The villain is not the union, Mr. Reed, it is you and everyone else involved in yielding control of our school district to the NRP. This is the big truth that you try to obscure. Bill Downum Highlands Ranch

Union isn’t behind anger about `reform’

According to Dougco School Board Director Doug Benevento, the Douglas County School District debate is about the union versus parents, teachers and students. This is a bold-faced lie. The debate in Douglas County is about our parents, teachers and students versus outside reform-minded influences on our public schools — just follow the money trail. These are the facts. The main voices fighting for our public schools are parentand community-driven and have no union ties. Strong Schools Coalition — no union influence. Taxpayers for Public Education — no union influence. Douglas County Parents — no union influence. Voices for Public Education — no union influence. Facebook’s SPEAK — no union influence. Facebook’s Involved Douglas County Teachers and Citizens — no union influence. We are parents, teachers, community members and students wanting our public schools back. These are the facts! Here is one example of how our current school board and administration have been bought by money from outside our district. Benevento and Meghann Silverthorn received a total of $20,000 in campaign contributions from Alex Cranberg and Ralph Nagel, of the Alliance for School Choice. Neither Cranberg nor Nagel is a resident of Douglas County. Silverthorn even received $5,000 from former Los Angeles Mayor Richard Riordan. Another outside source, The Daniels Fund, has given the Douglas County school district $150,000 to create commercials promoting this reform agenda. Benevento can give no specifics to his lies around union influence. These outside influences are hurting our community’s voice in our schools. Stefanie Fuhr Highlands Ranch

cmichlewicz@ourcoloradonews. com Seeing images of a violent tornado bearing down on the city of Moore, Okla., brought back memories for Becky Cohen. She has lived in Parker for more than 14 years now, but spent the first part of her life in Edmond, another suburb of Oklahoma City. It was a helpless feeling as she watched the drama unfold on television, and when the extent of the damage became clear, Cohen and her family readied themselves for a trip to help the victims. She announced her intentions on Facebook, today’s chosen platform for grassroots disaster relief efforts, and received an overwhelming response. With the help of a few friends, Cohen began soliciting donations of supplies. Among the most helpful was the temporary use of a trailer from Parker Trailers. The amount of supplies coming in — everything from toothbrushes and twine to duct tape and trash bags — filled the trailer so quickly that Cohen began asking for gift cards. “It got to the point where I got a little freaked out,” she said. “There were so many businesses donating and I was thinking, ‘My car can’t pull anything bigger.’” By the time they departed for Oklahoma roughly a week after the storm, Cohen, along with her husband, Bob, and kids Austin and Ashley, were towing roughly $3,500 worth of donated goods, including $1,500 in gift cards, to Moore. Some supplies came from businesses and the rest came from churches and private donors. The Cohens began seeing the dam-

‘To take the time to do this and for her to make the trip, the least we could do was partially fill the trailer.’ Loren Drake, Havyn LLC owner age when they entered Shawnee, although it was scattered; demolished homes would be a short distance from those that were left unscathed. Through their cleanup efforts at a mobile home park, where two people were killed, Cohen made connections with people she didn’t know. The work was not so much physically taxing as it was emotionally draining. While she was tearing apart what was left of a trailer, a little girl came up and told Cohen that it used to be her house. Austin and Ashley Cohen helped load and unload the trailer and organized the donations, while also clearing debris. Many of those affected by the EF-5 tornado were living in tents, but their spirit was not broken. Many were uplifted by the kindness of strangers. “They would come up and shake our hands and say thank you,” Cohen says. “It was really sweet.” The Cohen family was staying with

friends during the four-day trip and took shelter in a fortified garage storm shelter when another round of tornadoes passed over Oklahoma City, killing 20 people and injuring many more. The Cohens were planning to bring a youth group back to Oklahoma in July, but the air conditioning in the transport bus broke, and the group refocused its mission to helping Colorado wildfire victims. Cohen, the director of Campus Life at Chaparral High School, deflects any credit for the tornado relief effort and insists that it was the donors who made the difference. But one of those donors, Loren Drake, the owner of real estate solution firm Havyn LLC, said Cohen was the one who pulled all of the resources into one concentrated project. “To take the time to do this and for her to make the trip, the least we could do was partially fill the trailer,” said Drake, whose wife learned about the relief campaign on Facebook.

A Highlands Ranch businessman was convicted by a federal jury in Denver on 89 counts including mail fraud, visa fraud, human trafficking and money laundering. Kizzy Kalu, 49, will be sentenced Sept. 23 by Chief Judge Marcia Krieger in U.S. District Court and faces up to 20 years in federal prison. Each of the 89 counts also carries a penalty of up to $250,000. In custody throughout the course of the four-week trial that ended July 1, Kalu remains in custody awaiting his sentencing. Kalu was indicted in March 2012 for a scheme that involved making false representations to foreign nationals seeking work in the U.S., to

the State of Colorado, and to the U.S. government. Kalu lured nurses from countries across the world to come to Denver to work for Adam University, a university that exists in name only, as highly paid instructor supervisors. He helped more than 25 nurses obtain H-1B visas to come to Denver. Once they arrived, they were forced to find work in nursing homes and other long-term care facilities where they worked for much less money than promised. Each of the nurses paid Kalu $6,500 for assistance in obtaining a visa and each signed a contract that said if they left his employment they would owe him $25,000. Each of the victims also forfeited 40 percent of their weekly pay to Kalu, and his company Foreign Healthcare Professionals Group, under the threat that he would revoke their visa and have them deported if they did not do what was asked of them. “The victims in this case remained

in the country to testify, if needed, at trial,” said Jeff Dorschner, spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Colorado. “What happens next (to them) will be up to ICE.” U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Homeland Security Investigations was one of numerous federal and state departments, along with the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, which investigated the case against Kalu. Kumar Kibble, special agent in charge of Homeland Security Investigations in Denver, called human trafficking a form of modern-day slavery, saying that “human traffickers use force, fraud and coercion to obtain free or cheap labor from their victims” in order to profit. “Today’s verdict reflects (our) commitment to aggressively protect U.S. borders and the integrity of our travel document and labor laws,” said Michael Bayer, special agent in charge of the Department of State’s Diplomatic Security Service.

Fires’ link to beetles not cut-and-dried Conventional wisdom comes under scrutiny

By Kevin Vaughan and Burt Hubbard I-News at Rocky Mountain PBS

Colorado’s 4.3 million acres of beetledecimated forests represent a catastrophe in the making during another devastating wildfire season. Or do they? That is the conventional wisdom as another summer unfolds with destructive blazes that have left skies along the Front Range choked with smoke, but the reality is not so simple. “The issue is not will beetle-kill forests burn — they certainly will,” said Monica Turner, a University of Wisconsin professor who has done extensive research of wildfires in the West. “The question is, are they burning worse — more severely — than if the forest was green?” And the answer to that question is a matter of ongoing scientific debate, wrapped in factors that include the amount of time that has passed since the beetles did their damage, the number of trees that survived the infestation, other species of plants in the area and weather patterns. “This is a field of study that we just don’t have all the answers for,” said Matt Jolly, a researcher at the Missoula Fire Sciences Laboratory in Montana whose work has looked extensively at the way plants burn in wildfires.

Millions of acres affected

Anyone who has spent any time in the Colorado high country has seen the damage done by mountain pine beetles — vast swaths of once-green forested hills painted red, or gray, by dying and dead trees. The most recent count by the Colorado State Forest Service showed 3.35 million acres affected by the mountain pine beetle and 924,000 acres attacked by a different bug, the spruce beetle. An I-News examination of state maps found that hundreds of thousands of those

Fire rolls through a heavily forested area of Black Forest on June 11, the first day of the fire. The wildfire north of Colorado Springs killed two and destroyed more than 500 homes. Photo by Rob Carrigan acres are in the so-called “red zones” — the high-fire danger areas primarily along Colorado’s Front Range and up the Interstate 70 corridor. State officials use a number of factors to determine what constitutes a red zone, including development (primarily homes), the type of vegetation in the area and the slope of the land.

CASTLE ROCK CHAMBER OF COMMERCE PRESENTS

So as the West Fork Complex fires continue to burn in the beetle-damaged forests of southwest Colorado, and as the state reels from blazes like the ones that destroyed 511 homes in the Black Forest, it’s tempting to look at all the dying, dead and decaying trees attacked by beetles and conclude that massive wildfires pose a real threat to all affected areas sooner or later. Not so fast, according to some of those who have dedicated years to studying the ways that trees and other vegetation burn in wildfires.

Today’s forests are vastly different than those of previous centuries. A century of aggressive firefighting efforts have left many areas overgrown and choked with downed and dead trees. Added to that, development has left many forested areas peppered with homes, and parts of the West are experiencing prolonged, even historic drought. So the propensity for big, destructive fires is a near constant. Those conditions fuel blazes known as “crown fires,” which burn through the tops of the trees as if they were torches, spreading rapidly and generating tremendous heat. Those massive, fast-moving fires — like the Black Forest blaze last month north of Colorado Springs, where some beetle-kill trees were present — make for mesmerizing television and are the subject of extensive research. Turner and researcher Jesse Logan, a former U.S. Forest Service scientist and college professor, are among those who believe that beetle-kill forests go through a predictable cycle — one in which they are at times much less volatile than green forests. It starts with a beetle infestation, and it will take three or four years for the bugs to inflict all the damage they will on a section of forest. The trees in that stage turn red — and there’s little dispute those needles are highly combustible. But over the next couple years, the needles fall to the ground and begin to decompose. “The overall trend would be that immediately after trees are killed and they still have all those fine fuels, needles in particular, on the tree, then it’s highly flammable, probably more flammable than a green forest,” Logan said. “But after those needles fall and that can be, like in lodgepole, a couple years after the tree is killed, then the standing forest is actually less likely to lead to a crown fire than a green forest.” The reason? Green needles contain oils that are highly flammable. But that strange juxtaposition — that green, seemingly healthy forests might burn with more fury than dead ones — is

difficult for many people to comprehend. “I think that one of the reasons that this seems counter-intuitive to people in terms of its affect on fire is that when we burn a fire in our fireplace, we put dead logs in there — we don’t put green branches,” Turner said. “But in a forest fire it’s those green needles that are extremely flammable, and that’s what gives you the amounts of fuel up in the canopy in the forest and its conductivity.” One of the difficulties in getting answers is that it has been difficult to build realistic fire models to examine the effect of beetlekill trees. At the same time, studies that have looked at actual fires in beetle-kill areas are still in the review process, and the results have not been made public.

Researcher raises questions

Still, Jolly, the Montana researcher, cautioned against assuming that a forest will be less burnable six years after being hit by beetles because the trees no longer have their needles. His research has shown that dead, red needles burn faster and hotter than green ones — but that’s only part of the reason for being circumspect. “It’s just not that simple,” he said. “A standing gray tree, particularly one like a spruce … will have a lot of really, really fine dead branches. It may not have needles, but it will have those fine branches that will also burn and support a crown fire.” In addition, even areas with heavy beetle-kill have some trees that survive, and many have other kinds of trees mixed in among those that die. And then there’s another huge factor: the combination of weather and climate. Logan pointed to the massive Yellowstone fires of 1988, which took down every kind of forest — beetle-kill and green alike. “It all burned, just because conditions were so volatile,” he said. “In any situation, what’s driving it is fuel — you’ve got to have fuel. And the fuel can be green, red, gray, or gray on the ground, and if the weather conditions are right, and you get a lightning strike or some idiot with a match, it’s going to go. And if the weather conditions are like they’ve been in Colorado these past few years, or like they were in ‘88, it’s going to go big, regardless of what anybody can do. “As humans, we have this idea that we can control nature, and we often can — we turn on the air conditioner and things like that. But these are forces of nature you’re not going to control.” I-News is the public service journalism arm of Rocky Mountain PBS. For more information: inewsnetwork.org.

Rightsizing your next home O

ne of today’s real estate trends is appropriately named “rightsizing.” This happens when an existing home owner wants to rightsize their housing needs in terms of space, upkeep and mortgage costs. Typically, Empty Nesters or buyers in retirement are looking to rightsize, but this trend applies to anyone looking to buy their next home.One of the ways current students or even recent graduates can make themselves more attractive to prospective employers is to find the right internship. Internships are not always easy to get, and many of them don’t pay. But students who find the right internship often look back and recognize that their internship was their first step toward a rewarding career, and a step that provided valuable insight into their chosen field. To find the right internship, consider the following tips. Whether you are interested in living in a traditional neighborhood or a master-planned community full of amenities, with these simple steps nd. you will be able to find the rightsized t thishome to fit your needs. ermsSPACE urn a For the first time in many years, gs insmaller homes have become much hes,”more dominant in the marketplace. hoseFor many, the right fitting home is mma-smaller than ever before. The assump-

unts nd its

wers listic etlethat ll ard the

cauwill hit by have that otter rt of

tion is that only Empty Nesters or retired adults would welcome less space, but today’s families are discovering the appeal of smaller homes. Less space means less to maintain inside and out, providing more time to enjoy the home and less time cleaning. Smaller homes also can help to rightsize costs, from the energy bill to the mortgage, which is always an attractive feature. Looking at the bigger picture, a smaller home carries a reduced carbon footprint and adds to the environmental appeal of such a decision. UPKEEP For some, the most important home amenity is maintenance or the lack thereof. A home within a masterplanned community, for example, appeals to those who have reached a point in their lives where they want to spend less time taking care of a home and more time enjoying their home. Generally designed to provide lowmaintenance properties, these communities allow for a lock-and-leave lifestyle, meaning if the homeowner wants to leave for a long weekend or an extended holiday, they simply lock their home and leave without needing to arrange to have the grass cut and watered, or snow shoveled from the sidewalk. Even if they aren’t traveling, these homeowners can also enjoy

being at home and not having those tasks on their to-do list, ever thanks to the maintenance provided by the Home Owner’s Association (HOA). COST When looking for a home, cost is oftentimes the leading factor in any search. Cost varies greatly depending on the age and size of a home, the surrounding community and a number of other factors that figure into the value of a home. When looking for your next home, make sure to consider what matters most to you – style of home, amenities, walkability, etc. – knowing the rightsize cost will affect which elements are possible. One way to rightsize your cost, yet still afford many of the community features you want, is to look in a neighborhood or master-planned community that offers multiple housing types. When a mixture of housing types is available – single-family, patio home or other style – it is much more reasonable to expect to find the rightsized mortgage to fit your financial needs. And, when you bring together home styles that appeal to everyone from young professionals and growing families, to Empty Nesters and active adults, a vibrant community is the result. As you head out to find your next home, don’t think of it as fitting in

with the Jones’, but rightsizing with your needs. After all, the Jones’ won’t be living there, so you shouldn’t buy a home with their needs in mind. ■

Rider keeps up fight against disease Highlands Ranch man with MS joins bike event By Ryan Boldrey

rboldrey@ourcoloradonews. com When Steve Schade was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2007, his family rallied around him without hesitation and started helping raise money in search of a cure. Just 34 years old at the time, the Highlands Ranch man used to enjoy his summer evenings playing softball. He began to have difficulty seeing the ball coming at him and suddenly could no longer see colors vividly. Things were almost gray scale, he said. About the same time he also began to feel numbness in his feet and knees. “It felt like my legs were falling asleep,” he said. “I thought it was a circulation issue, that I had a pinched nerve. It wasn’t apparent at all times, but was very gradual.” With no specific diagnosis process available for multiple sclerosis, Schade underwent a year’s worth of tests, up to and including spinal taps, before receiving a “probable MS diagnosis” and beginning treatment. He has been on numerous drugs and steroids over the past six years, and does

NOW Novartis team members Steve Schade and Olivia Dillon get ready to ride the June 29 Bike MS Colorado ride that raises money for multiple sclerosis research. Schade, a Highlands Ranch resident, was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2007. Courtesy photo everything he can to stay sharp and active. Since the summer of 2008, one of the ways he has stayed active is by participating in the local Bike MS ride each year. Accompanied by a team of family members and friends, rid-

ing under the moniker of “Stevie’s Wonders,” he has raised more than $25,000 to go toward research of a disease that to this day has no known cure. This year, while eight members of Stevie’s Wonders pedaled 150 miles from Westminster to Fort

Collins and back June 29 and 30, Schade rode the 75-mile jaunt on day one as an honorary member of NOW (No Opportunity Wasted) Novartis, teaming up on a tandem bicycle with professional cyclist Olivia Dillon. The NOW Novartis team is

pedaling with different honorary members at five of the 100 Bike MS rides around the country this summer, with a mission of showing that MS does not have to define or limit the more than 400,000 Americans who have the disease. At the Colorado ride, they were part of the 3,000-plus cyclists who helped to raise a total of $2,795,595, according to Karen Malone with Novartis Pharmaceuticals. In addition to raising money for research and to help those with the disease, Schade said the rides do a lot more for those battling MS. “Being around other people who are affected by the same thing is a great boost,” he said. “Not a lot of people in my inner circle really understand what I am going through, so it is a really positive thing to have that sense of community and see other people who have had it 10, 15, 30 years. “You hear a lot about how devastating (MS) is and how difficult it is on people, but it really doesn’t have to be a death sentence. Within the last five to 10 years, medications and therapies have come so far and things are continuously getting better.” To learn more about the NOW Novartis campaign, please visit www.togetherMS.com.

Lone Tree weighs community garden City seeks resident input before taking next steps By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com Lone Tree might join the growing trend of community gardening. The city wants to know if its residents support the idea, and recently posted a survey asking for input. But establishing a garden will take far more than getting a thumbs-up from the residents. “The roadblocks we’ve come up against are water taps are anywhere from $25,000 up,” said City Councilmember Kim Monson. “And land, where can we procure that? How close can we have parking? How do the neighbors feel about it? “This (survey) is really the first component. Before we jump through all kinds of hoops, we want to find out if people are interested.” Lone Tree resident Jim Britt believes they are. His father, who recently moved in with Britt, was an avid gardener in a Denver community garden who recently got a spot in Highlands Ranch’s Cheese Ranch community garden. Based on his father’s passion, Britt asked the city council to consider adding the amenity in Lone Tree. “Lone Tree, I think, is a mature enough city where it would be good to at least put a toe in that water,” Britt said. “I think there’s a desire. It can be kind of a community focal point, people who

have a common interest coming together.” Council members voiced general support for the concept, which has come up several times in recent years. Highlands Ranch’s three community gardens are so popular, the metro district that manages them has a waiting list for would-be gardeners. The first garden there, also triggered by community demand, opened in 1998. “We have a lot of people that return year in and year out,” said Nick Adamson, the district’s open space supervisor. “People seem to really enjoy it.” The metro district ties into existing adjacent park lines for water to serve its community gardens. It also charges a seasonal fee of $45 for residents and $52 for non-residents to use a 10-by-20-foot plot. That money makes up for most of the district’s costs. “After you factor in maintenance and so forth, I think it’s a wash,” Adamson said. But money is not the motivating factor for either the metro district or those who use the gardens. Acres Green resident Karli Morton’s densely packed Cheese Ranch plot includes about 10 vegetable varieties, but she can’t say with certainty the produce lowers her grocery bill. “I have to be working the soil,” she said. “I have to be close to the earth.” But she would much rather do so in Lone Tree. “I would very much be in support of a community

garden,” Morton said. Britt thinks an area behind Eagle Ridge Elementary might be ideal for a community garden. Councilmembers also suggested RidgeGate’s Schweiger Ranch among the potential sites. The American Community Gardening Association estimates that 18,000 community gardens are growing throughout the United States and Canada. A recent University of Utah report shows people who participate in community gardening have a significantly lower body mass index and less chance of being overweight or obese than non-gardeners. Lone Tree is accepting input until July 24. To take the online survey, visit www.cityoflone tree.com/communitygar densurvey.

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

Who wants to try out for ‘Millionaire’?

Men hoist some of the 100 poles required to support the big top tent for Cirque du Soleil’s newest production, “Amaluna.” Workers raised the tent July 2 on the Pepsi Center grounds as media and others looked on. The tent will seat 2,600 people and requires 550 pegs to hold it firmly in the ground.

With room for 2,600 people, the Cirque du Soleil big top takes shape on the grounds of the Pepsi Center in downtown Denver. The colorful tent will be the home to the Canadian entertainment company’s newest production, “Amaluna,” July 18 to Aug. 25. The production travels with 65 trailers carrying more than 2,000 tons of equipment.

Cirque du Soleil returns to Denver with its newest production, “Amaluna.” The first visible signs of the popular Canadian entertainment group’s arrival came July 2 as more than 60 men and women worked to erect the familiar blue and yellow big top on the Pepsi Center grounds. Traveling with 65 trailers carrying more than 2,000 tons of equipment, workers will spend eight days assembling the colorful big top, the entrance, box office, additional rehearsal tents, administrative offices and a kitchen. Once complete, the big top will seat 2,600 people for the show, which opens July 18 and runs through Aug. 25.

Museum hosts quilt retrospective Marie Agnes Conway had Littleton business By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com Marie Conway began sewing early — creating ensembles for her self and her two sisters. She graduated from Cathedral High School in Denver. She married David Conway and they lived in Littleton, where they raised seven children: David (deceased), Daniel, Martin, John, Stephen, Paul and Jenise. They celebrated their 62nd anniversary before she passed away in July, 2012. For a time in the 1960s, she had a dressmaking business on Littleton’s Main Street, called Marie’s, where she designed and sewed ensembles and costumes for customers. When she retired from that business, she turned to her real love — quilting — and created many innovative wall hangings as well as functional quilts and in later years,

smaller quilted pieces, such as totes and lap quilts. “A Quilter’s Craft: Marie Agnes Conway Retrospective” is on exhibit at the Littleton Museum July 12 to March 16, 2013. Her daughter, Jenise Conway, said there are about 50-60 works in the show. While Conway used some traditional block patterns, usually her quilts were of her own design, each unique. She enjoyed the textures of fabrics as they passed between her fingers The City of Littleton owns two Conway quilts in its art collection: “David’s Hometown” was designed and made for Littleton’s

Centennial and dedicated to her oldest son as a memorial. It shows various recognizable scenes around town and has been displayed at the Littleton Center at times. She worked on it from 1985 to 1989, finishing in time for Littleton’s 1990 Centennial celebration. There is also a mauve shantung silk spider quilt, her first art quilt, created in 1983 and purchased by the Littleton Fine Arts Board for the city collection. She made several quilts of silk, but most are crafted from cotton fabrics, Jenise said. “Flora” is an example of her original designs — a rosebud with little ladybugs and ants. Some pieces are a collaboration — with Jenise or, in the case of a pillow, with her granddaughter for a 4-H project. Her quilts were exhibited in several local shows: the Littleton Fine Art Board’s “Own an Original”; the Littleton Fine Arts Guild Depot Art Center’s “Great Frame Up” show; and the annual Western Welcome Week Arts and Crafts show.

Who wants to be a millionaire? Now, you can be, as the syndicated game show will audition Denverites on July 12 at the Seawell Ballroom at the Denver Performing Arts Complex. “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire” auditions will include a timed multiple choice test and, for those people who pass, an interview with one of the show’s producers. Auditioners will be seen on a firstcome, first-served basis and producers will audition as many people as they can. Participants must be at least 18 years of age, a U.S. resident and meet all eligibility requirements. Rules and times can be found on “Millionaire’s” website at www. millionairetv.com. A new season of “Millionaire” will debut at 2 p.m. Sept. 2 on KMGH-Channel 7 with new host Cedric the Entertainer.

AvidGolfer reaches 100

Colorado AvidGolfer is celebrating a 100th milestone. Not that the local magazine is becoming a centenarian — it still has a few years to go before hitting that drive — rather CAG is publishing its 100th issue with the July edition, on newsstands and online (www. coloradoavidgolfer.com) this week. Editor Jon Rizzi realized a couple of months ago that the magazine was approaching its 100th edition. “It’s been a really great run so far,” he said. To celebrate CAG No. 100, the pages pay homage to past covers along with its current cover guy Billy Casper, whose company recently took over management of The Golf Club at Ravenna in Douglas County’s Waterton Canyon area. Other big names whose mugs have graced the coveted CAG cover include: Todd Helton (first cover), John Elway (twice), Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, Arnold Palmer, Jill McGill, Amelia Earhart (last month), Amy Van Dyken, John Lynch, Terrell Davis, Don Cheadle, Kevin Costner, David Duval, Tom Weiskopf and on and on. But Rizzi doesn’t let the fairway grass grow under his feet. He’s set his sights on Broncos QB Peyton Manning for a future cover. “He’s only been here for a year, so we’re still working on that,” Rizzi said. After celebrating the biggest issue ever in 2006 just before The International held its last tournament at Castle Pines, CAG, along with the rest of the country, figuratively boarded up the windows to brace against the recession’s storm. “We weathered the recession, which hit the golf business and publishing business very hard,” Rizzi said. “We kept our hand firmly on the tiller and navigated the waters. We pulled back from nine issues to eight issues a year, which made us a stronger publication.” Rizzi, employee No. 1, was supported by co-captain and publisher Allen Walters, employee No. 2 in the company majority owned by The Baker brothers — Dick, Don and Ray.

Show takes cartoons to art realm ‘Rollin With the Homies’ brings ‘Peanuts’ influence to Denver By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcolorado news.com Artist Tom Everhart enjoyed a long friendship with cartoonist Charles Schulz and was educated in new ways to use his fine art training as he worked in the studio with the “Peanuts” cartoonist. Everhart was encouraged to carry forward Schulz’s comic strip creations into the fine art realm and has exhibited the resulting paintings throughout the world, including at the Louvre in Paris. He will bring a new show, “Rollin With the Homies,” to Denver’s Fascination Street Fine Art from July 11 through August 19, appearing at the gallery from 6 to 9 p.m. July 19 during an opening reception and from 1 to 5 p.m. July 20. Everhart said it is a retrospective of his work as it evolved under Schulz’s influence and will only appear in Denver. In a phone interview, he described early meetings with Schulz. “He took me to his studio and we drew lines: three straight, three fat, three wiggly. He taught me more about lines. When you looked at the same thing, you could see a difference, see things in a new

way …” He observed that “happy may be somewhat deceiving — the work may be more easily explained by what it doesn’t have.” He thinks Schulz’s line work bordered on abstract expressionism at times and talks about how the beloved cartoonist continually referred to Picasso’s multipleview images, where you see front and side at the same time. “He took you inside the strip — made you walk around,” Everhart said. Early Peanuts strips used perspective and backgrounds, but after 1960, he took it out and made you stay in the foreground, as did abstract painters of the 1960s. Characters are two and a half heads tall, abstracted from the art school formula for drawing people at seven and a half heads tall. “He was always afraid to use the word `abstraction,’ thinking people wouldn’t understand. “What Sparky (Schulz) did — he got me an agreement that I could respond to his paintings for life.” Although the paintings are recognizable imagery, they have associated meanings, Everhart explains. “Does This Make Me Look Fat?” shows Snoopy blanketed with little flying Woodstocks. It actually speaks to overpopulation, the painter said. “I try to approach his work with different kinds of marks. First, brush strokes.

if you go “Rollin With the Homies” will be exhibited July 11 to Aug. 19 at Fascination Street Fine Art, 2727 East Third Ave., Denver. Everhart will appear from 6 to 9 pm. July 19 and 1 to 5 pm. July 20. (RSVP requested on those dates.) 303-3331592, fascinationstart.com.

“Big Poppa” by Tom Everhart plays with the Snoopy image. Courtesy photos Then dots, circles … It had to evolve and grow, although the subject matter is the same. It feels like he’s alive for me …” The original inspiration for the Schulz-related paintings came to Everhart when he was hospitalized, undergoing chemotherapy for cancer. He had a handful of Peanuts comic strips Schulz had sent him in his hands, illuminated by bright light from the window, which almost projected them onto the wall. Schulz stressed that his paintings — and titles — must be different from the cartoons, involving Everhart’s insights and feelings. Each image can be recognized, but is very different.

Lithographs of the paintings followed, at Schulz’s suggestion — as a way to get more work out for public view. After Schulz’s death in 2000, Everhart remained in touch with his family and continued to paint in his patterns of dots. Everhart is also consulting on a 3-D “Peanuts” movie that will be coming out soon. He lectures around the world about Schulz and exhibits his own related work.

Tom Everhart, left, and Charles Schulz met often in the studio to work together.

Bottoms up in Highlands Ranch Grist Brewing Company set for October opening By Ryan Boldrey

Highlands Ranch is set to get its first microbrewery as Grist Brewing Company plans to open this October in Commerce Center, across the street from Shea Stadium. Award-winning home brewer Rob Kevwitch, who grew up in Acres Green and graduated from Highlands Ranch High School in 1994, saw the need in the area and hopes the taproom and brewery will be far from the last in Highlands Ranch. “The more the merrier,” he said. “Just because we live in the ‘burbs doesn’t mean we don’t like to have a good time. There just aren’t as many places to have a good time.” Kevwitch will get his wish about a year after opening too, when Breckenridge Brewery, the fifth-largest brewery in Colorado, relocates its Denver brewery to a 12acre spot between Aspen Grove and Hudson Gardens in Littleton — just 2½ miles north of Grist Brewing Company. An organic chemist, Kevwitch first got interested in brewing when he was in graduate school, but while living in Houston started getting passionate about his hobby and built an all-grain brewing system with a friend. He moved back to Colorado three years ago and plans for a brewery began to take shape.

The company, run by Kevwitch and three silent partners, has already purchased a 20-barrel brewhouse from W.M. Sprinkman Corp. out of Wisconsin, which will be installed in mid-August. “All of our equipment we will have in the brewery and taproom is American-made,” Kevwitch said. “That is something that is extremely important to us.” The taproom will feature six to eight brews when it opens in October, and Kevwitch said the brews will definitely include a Hefeweizen, a Kolsch, an American IPA, a Bock and a brown. Plans also call to add a fruit malt cider soon after opening. The layout will feature a large taproom with an angular bar, and patrons will have the ability to watch beer being made while they sip a cold one, as the brew house will be set up on the other side of a waist-high wall. Tours will also be available to all patrons. “We want them to really feel like they are in a brewery,” Kevwitch said. “That’s the idea, we don’t want this to feel like just any other bar.” As far as beer to go, growlers and kegs will be available at the time of opening and plans call for a canning line around the end of 2014. There will also be limited bottling runs of specialty brews from time to time, Kevwitch said, adding that there will be no food sold at the brewery due to zoning.

Zac Garland, a University of Northern Colorado junior and Mountain Vista graduate, launched a nonprofit this past semester called “A Work in Progress,” in which random acts of kindness are encouraged, and the theme of paying it forward guides one act to the next. Garland has handed out hundreds of cards to facilitate his program. Courtesy photo isn’t already up there, what someone did for them. “Whether people choose to enter their good deed on the website isn’t what’s important,” he said. “As long as they are using the card to make a difference in someone else’s life, that means the world. We’re trying to foster relationships through random acts of kindness, having people look at a complete stranger and say, `I could do something nice for them and change their lives in a positive way.’” Garland came up with the idea after getting involved with the Sigma Chi fraternity’s philanthropic committee. Unsatisfied

with the “lack of heart in raising money the traditional way” for various charities, he said he wanted to come up with something that really made a difference to everyone involved. “It can be as small as paying for a Starbucks drink for the person behind you in line and can grow exponentially from there,” he said. “The hope is that in a year’s time we will see some really impactful deeds have been done and that it has gained some serious traction.” For more information, to read about some of the deeds already done, or to obtain a card, please visit www.awip.me.

Golfers gear up for Solheim Match-play format offers unique twist By Jim Benton

jbenton@ourcolorado news.com Some captains and potential players of the European Solheim Cup team recently visited and played the Colorado Golf Club during a week off in the LPGA and European Tour schedules. The Solheim Cup, the women’s version of the Ryder Cup, pits 12 golfers from the United States against 12 European golfers and is scheduled Aug. 13-18 at the Colorado Golf Club in Parker. Coaches and players met with the media July 2, and almost everyone delivered the same message that anything can happen in match play. “In match play, anything can happen,” said assistant captain Annika Sorenstam. “Some players feel they are representing their country and continent. They just soak it up and find another gear they might not find in other tournaments. “It’s a putt here, it’s a shot here, it’s a match turned around.” The Solheim Cup has a unique match play format. Players will play fourball, in which each player plays their own ball throughout the round. Each hole is won by the two-women team whose player had the lowest score on the hole and the team is awarded a point. If the teams tie, a half-point is given to each team. Foursomes pit two-player teams and the golfers hit alternate shots. A point is awarded each hole to the team with the lowest score. In the 12 singles matches, all 24 players square off and golfers gain points or halves for each hole. There will be 28 matches played over the three days of the tournament. Four foursomes matches will be held Aug. 16 starting at 7:30 a.m., with four fourball matches set to begin at 1 p.m. On Aug. 17, foursome and fourball matches are scheduled for the same

Members of the Solheim Cup’s European team pose for a photo during a press conference at the Colorado Golf Club July 2. Photos by Chris Michlewicz times. The 12 singles matches begin at 12:30 p.m. Aug. 18. There are 28 points up for grabs in the team standings over the three days, with a point awarded for each match won and half point garnered for each match that is tied. Europe needs 14 points to retain the cup, which it won in 2011 in Meath, Ireland. The Americans would need 14.5 points to earn theirs seventh straight victory on U.S. soil. Many purists argue that match play is boring because when a team or individual gets a commanding lead, their play tends to be cautious and conservative. However, the format often leads to more aggressive play, especially since each hole is a separate competition. “It’s (Colorado Golf Club) a great course for match

play, especially the back nine from 14 on could be fun holes,” said European captain Liselotte Neumann. “A lot of things could happen on those holes, there are short par 4s and par 5s that you can get on in two shots. “There are some great holes, especially when it comes to playing maybe the best ball matches. You have 16 when someone might want to go for it. In match play, you can have someone be more aggressive.” Carlota Ciganda, a former Arizona State golfer from Pamplona, Spain, who turned pro two years ago, played on two European Junior Solheim Cup teams and enjoys match play. “The whole format is fun, being a team member,” said Ciganda. “Match play is different and this course suits it well because you can take some

risks and play it as a match play course. It’s going to be fun.” Neumann, Sorenstam and assistant captain Carin Koch will have the difficult task of matching partners for the fourball and foursomes matches. “It’s about finding the right partners you are playing with,” said Sorenstam. “There are times you play with players and you try so hard but it always doesn’t fit. “I can mention Suzann Pettersen. She’s a top player as an individual. She’s now No. 3 in the world. In the Solheim Cup she really rises to the top and she’s had some opportunities to make some winning putts. She was my partner a few times and together she elevated my game and I elevated her game. That the challenge of the captains, to find the right combinations.”

Golfer keeps fingers crossed about pain U.S. Senior Open player has troublesome back By Jim Benton

jbenton@ourcoloradonews.com Hitting drives off the tee, trying to reach the green with a fairway wood and constantly bending over to mark your ball on the green or grab the ball out of the cup can lead to back pain for golfers. Bill Loeffler, a Castle Rock resident, is dealing with chronic back problems as he prepares to play in the U.S. Senior Open, which starts July 11 at Nebraska’s Omaha Country Club.

Loeffler, 56, earned a position in the U.S. Senior Open field when he carded a oneover-par 72 during a qualifying tournament June 17 on the West Course at The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs. He participated in the PGA Professional National Championships at Oregon’s Sunriver Resort during the last week of June when his back problems flared up. “My back gave out in Oregon and I’m just now recovering,” said Loeffler. “I’m hoping that I can be at least close to 100 percent health-wise for the Open. The heat should help, I hope. I really struggled in Oregon. I had a sinus infection and my back went out. I felt like I was 10,000 years old. “It’s a chronic deal and it seems to be

good for a while and then decides to turn the other way. I’m just hopeful than I don’t do anything stupid with it over the next few days. When you have a disc pressing on a nerve, your leg goes numb sometimes.” Loeffler is anxious to see if his back will bother him and let him play well, since he will be competing against such well-known golfers as Fred Couples, Joey Sindelar, Hale Irwin, Tom Lehman and Bernhard Langer, to name a few. “It’s an issue but it is certainly not an excuse because these guys are all seniors,” he continued. “Everyone has issues. It’s something you deal with and go forward and still play the best you can. “The doctor said it’s not going to get any

worse if I play. If I can stand the bending and twisting, then I can practice. And I’ve been practicing a little bit and got some tips from one of the local pros who has been helping me a little bit. I’m optimistic that I will be OK and do well. You just kind of have to do it and put the pain aside and say you’re here and a lot of people wish they were here, and just have fun and try to play good.” Loeffler, president of Fairways and Greens Inc., which owns The Links Golf Course in Highlands Ranch, will be playing for the first time in the U.S. Senior Open, but he knows what it’s like to play in premier tournaments. He won the 2007 senior PGA ProfesGolfer continues on Page 31

Tournament course ready for action Players practice before high-profile competition By Chris Michlewicz

cmichlewicz@ourcoloradonews.com Opinions might differ on which team will bring home the coveted Solheim Cup, but there is no disagreement about the venue chosen as the battleground. The Colorado Golf Club’s championship course, a private, 7,604-yard gantlet of inviting fairways and tricky greens, sits on a rolling, elevated plain on Parker’s east side. Just southeast of South Parker and Stroh roads, it greets players with striking views of the Rocky Mountains and occasional visits from resident deer.

Annika Sorenstam goes for the green during a chipping challenge with the media July 2 at the Colorado Golf Club. Photo by Chris Michlewicz July 1-2, European team captain Liselotte Neumann said the course is perfect for match play. She commented on the challenging final stretch and is hopeful that, with the right conditions, some late par fives will be reachable in two shots. When asked how she might prepare the team for a potential high-pressure finish, Neumann said if some of the women are unable to play a full 18, she will instruct them to concentrate on the back nine “so they can feel like they know the last couple of holes better than some of the others.” To which European team assistant captain Annika Sorenstam interjected, to laughter: “How about getting the players to show up early so they don’t have to go down to the last few holes?” Neumann said the entire course is “generous off the tees,” but the undulating greens vary greatly in size. She said a

handful of players were staying in Parker a few extra days to get a feel for how the elevation might affect club distances, how the greens are rolling and what strategic bounces might come into play. Experience at the host venue will help the team members build confidence in their ability to play well there, she said. The U.S. team will arrive early and practice on Aug. 12, the Monday of the tournament week, Pepper said. “Whatever groundwork hasn’t been finished will be ready by then,” she said. As always, the tournament is likely to come down to one or two shots, and Solheim Cup Tournament director Becky Newell said she expects that the final holes will make for a good finish. Because of the nature of the tournament, every shot counts and being prepared is a must. “In match play, anything can happen.

It’s a putt here and a shot here, it’s a match turning around, it’s just kind of a sequence,” Sorenstam said. The European team has never won on U.S. soil, but the players are coming in with loads of confidence, having secured a convincing victory at the 2011 Solheim Cup in Ireland. Sorenstam says Team Europe has its “hands on the trophy as of now” and isn’t ready to let it go.

admitted Loeffler. “It (U.S. Senior Open) is a big-time event with the best players in the world. Freddie Couples and all those guys will be there. So it’s fun to get to play against that caliber of player and play on courses that are usually just immaculate. “I don’t really set any goals. I don’t play in a lot of tournaments so I’m kind of just going there and feeling my way around and see if my game kind of fits the golf course. Then if it does, I start thinking about what I can do and what are the possibilities. Then you always have to say, `it’s one hole at a time’ and all that baloney, but it’s true that it’s hard to do because of the distractions and all the people there. All the tournaments that I usually play, there is not a lot of

gallery, but it’s fun to hit some good shots in front of a big group of people.” Loeffler won’t be teeing it up at any famous course like Pebble Beach, Augusta National, Cypress Point or Shinnecock Hills, but he’s looking forward to playing at the Omaha Country Club. “I’ve heard a lot of good things about it,” he said. “I understand it’s a very old course. I have an affinity for playing courses that are 1920s vintage. They’re just a lot of fun. It’s Omaha in July, but I hear the city has really rallied around the tournament and it’s going to be very well attended.” Loeffler hopes he can ignore his back woes and just absorb the fact his is playing

in a major tournament. “I feel very fortunate,” he said. “There were 100 guys for two spots in the qualifying at The Broadmoor, so the odds are against you. If you are lucky enough to get in, you had better go in with the attitude of you’re lucky to be here, enjoy it and like it. “I played in the Senior PGA (2010) out at the Colorado Golf Club. I had a lot of fun. I got to play a practice round with Couples, Jay Haas and Ben Crenshaw. Playing with those guys every once in a while is a blast. They are so good and they are so nice to put up with a club pro. Jay Haas gave me a short game lesson and that was nice of him. I actually played good. I think I was in third after the first day, hit a wall but made the cut.”
