Reform slate takes race Tough battle for schools ends with voters’ decision Staff report Candidates favoring the current direction of the reform-oriented Douglas County School Board won all four races, after months of heated electioneering on both sides. Unofficial results released at 11 p.m. Election Day showed the closest race

was in District E, where incumbent Doug Benevento led challenger Bill Hodges 51.9 percent to 48.1 percent, with a margin of 3,615 votes separating them. In District B, Jim Geddes led 52.6 percent to 47.4 percent over Barbra Chase. In District D, Judi Reynolds held a 52 percent to 48 percent lead over Julie Keim. In District G, incumbent Meghann Silverthorn held a 53.5 percent lead over Ronda Scholting’s 46.5 percent. In each race, about 95,000 votes were counted, with a possibility of a few thou-

sand more remaining to be tallied. Reynolds, who was at a vote-watch gathering at the Fowl Line sports bar in Castle Rock, was looking forward to serving her fouryear term. “The majority of people like the way things are headed and want to see them implemented,” she said. Benevento saw a mandate in the re-

sults. “The voters elected a slate of candidates who have articulated a clear point of view of where it is we want to go. So we are going to move in that direction and talk to people and listen. Clearly there are a lot of voters who feel the other way and we need to understand that,” he said. “The voters have elected four candidates who believe in parental choice and who believe in performance pay.

Japanese students visit Castle View School steps up to host group, which was diverted by flood By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com When Boulder High School suffered flood damage during September’s storms, nine students at a Japanese high school thought their plans to visit the United States were in peril. Then a search for high schools with Japanese language programs led them to Castle View High School, and world languages teacher Thor Kjeseth. “We needed a school that has Japanese language classes; it makes it much easier,” said Heidaki Yamamoto, an Erie resident and native of Japan who helps coordinate the annual Shihoro High School trips. “I was relieved when we started talking to

Thor. Compared to teachers in the past, he was much more thorough and detailed.” From Kjeseth’s standpoint, Boulder’s loss was Douglas County’s gain. “We feel blessed” to host the students, Kjeseth said. The students and their teacher arrived at Castle View Oct. 30 for a four-day stay. They spent their days shadowing other Castle View students at the school, and their evenings with host students and their families. Teacher Kiyo Kamita and her charges were surprised by the reception they received. As they walked into the school library, pulling wheeled suitcases behind them, Castle View students greeted them with “konnichiwa” — the Japanese word for hello — and bows. “I was very, very touched by the warm reception,” Kamita said. “And just the

sheer number of people, because we come from such a small school.” Shihoro is an agricultural community of about 7,000 people, and its high school has only about 160 students. The students were startled by many aspects of American life. “The drink sizes are huge,” said Ryo Anraku. “In the restrooms, the paper towels come out automatically,” chimed in Go Yoshida. “I was surprised.” “You don’t separate your trash,” observed Kotaro Hayakawa. Additionally, most Japanese students wear uniforms, and are not allowed to wear makeup or jewelry, she said. Those differences aside, the students quickly immersed themselves in their host community.

Construction officially began with an Oct. 29 groundbreaking for what Castle Rock officials are calling the town’s largest road construction project ever — a twomile-long road, costing about $65 million, that will give The Meadows subdivision, which is west of Interstate 25, another way to get to I-25. It’s expected the new road will take off about half of the traffic now using Meadows Parkway to and from the Founders Parkway interchange with I-25, says Dan Sailer, project manager and Castle Rock’s assistant director of public works. The new road will be located about a mile north of Meadows Parkway. It will begin where North Meadows Drive currently ends, near Castle View High School in The Meadows, and continue all the way west to I-25. It’s a complex project involving among other things the construction of two interchanges and two bridges, and the involvement of the Federal Highway Administration, Sailer said. But growth is requiring that it be undertaken now, he said. Meadows Parkway is a stretch of road that’s currently stretched — as that’s now a main access point for commuters and factory outlets shoppers. “Intersections along Meadows Parkway at I-25 and between U.S. 85 are nearing capacity level during peak hours,” said Sailer. The most recent traffic counts for a 24hour period on three segments of Meadows Parkway show an average of about 30,733 vehicle trips — both directions — on Meadows Parkway in the segment from Prairie Hawk Drive to U.S. Highway 85 (Sante Fe Drive); an average of 31,964 trips for the U.S. 85 to Factory Shops Boulevard segment; and the largest volume, 52,355 trips, in the Factory Shops Boulevard to I-25 segment. And those numbers are expected to grow. The Meadows currently has about 14,500 residents and is only about 55 percent to 60 percent built out, according to information from Caroline Kipp, a town Project continues on Page 10

A Facebook page that’s not antisocial media Sept. 22 … that was a really lovely thing you did today, giving flowers to the girls who weren’t asked to homecoming. … It was really good to see that someone cared enough to put some good hard effort into being a good person. For a lot of us it was the highlight of our day. … Thank you so much, really. March 5 The other day when everyone in the west atrium pitched in to help the janitors clean up/stack chairs/fold tables? Ya. That was really cool. If you scroll through the Facebook Compliments page of Lakewood High School, you’ll come across many more just like these. “Positive words,” senior Olivia Ehret says, “have the power to change the community.” One could say that is her mantra and why, almost a year ago, she and a friend decided to duplicate the Compliments page she had stumbled upon on the University of Southern California website. “Oh, gosh, I was entranced by it,” Olivia remembers. “I scrolled on it for two hours. I thought if it could be implemented on such a huge campus as USC, it definitely could at Lakewood.” Compliments, after all, are just one more way of spreading a little kindness. But the accolade-filled Facebook pages also reflect a positive use of social media in an age when it is often used as a tool for meanness and spitefulness. Consider the recent suicide of a 12-yearold Florida girl, who investigators say killed herself after continued online harassment by two other girls, 12 and 14. There have been many other such cases reported. Federal government studies report 52 percent of students have been cyberbullied and

25 percent repeatedly through their cell phones or the Internet. The faceless nature of social media makes it alarmingly easy to be unkind, to cause hurt without feeling or seeing the effects or repercussions. Although many describe social media as impersonal, it’s actually quite the opposite. Plenty of emotion flies across the networked miles — sadly, it’s often the hateful kind. Which is what is so nice about a Compliments page: It puts the heart back into the words. Oct. 30 We only recently talked, but you are an amazing person inside and out. I love how you aren’t afraid to be yourself, it is really inspiring! The nice things you say can make people’s day, like it did mine! One of the first such uses of social media occurred in October 2011 when a young man at Iowa City West High School created a Twitter Compliments account as a way to fight back against cyberbullying in the area. The account took off, tweeting more than 3,000 messages in three months. Several other high schools followed, and then universities, including Columbia, Penn State and Brown, spurred the trend with Facebook pages that, for the most part, remain anonymous by asking users to

send compliments to an inbox from which administrators then tag the messages to the recipient’s News Feed. That’s how it’s done at Lakewood High School. “It’s just a nice way for people’s days to be brightened,” Olivia says. “The beauty is in the mystery.” Although the Lakewood page wasn’t started as a response to cyberbullying, Olivia believes it helps keep the negativity and meanness at bay. In almost a year, there’s only been one comment she’s removed. “I think we’d be a lot more positive and healthy society” if we said nicer things to each other, she says. “People would have better self-images of themselves and feel more open communication with other people. And maybe there would be less instances of bullying if people didn’t feel so isolated and lonely.” March 12 Seeing this page makes me want to transfer to Lakewood as soon as possible. I’ve seen bullying all around at my school. There’s NO ONE that has the courage to compliment one other here. I appreciate how everyone treats each other well. … There is an art to complimenting, though. It must be sincere. It must be truthful. Otherwise, it loses the power to uplift and could do just the opposite, says Michael Karlson, a professor at the University of Denver’s graduate school of professional psychology. An insincere compliment makes you “wonder if that other person doesn’t respect you or know you.” But a genuine one can work a little magic. “It can activate a positive image of yourself,” Karlson says. “Sometimes, when we’re feeling depressed and incompetent, it’s a

reminder of who we usually are.” Olivia would agree. “A lot of people they say the compliments have been posted at just the right time,” she says, because “they were having a rough time.” March 13 To the girl in the bathroom who said I was pretty. … Thanks. I really needed that right then. Olivia, quite wise at 17, has an idea about why we aren’t as kind as we could be — we’re afraid of the reaction, of what people might think of us. “Society is kind of closed off in the sense that when we see something positive about someone we keep it to ourselves,” she says, “especially when it’s someone we don’t know that well.“ We need to take the leap. It’s not that difficult. “Kind words can be short and easy to speak,” a Missionaries of Charities Sisters once said, “but their echoes are truly endless.” If we find we can’t say them, maybe we can write them. Oct. 13, via mobile Luka Savarie, I don’t know you at all. But I think you seem like such a cool and down to earth person. Also your haircut is SO cute. 23 like This made my night. (smiley face) thank you so much you lovely, lovely person. And that says it all. Ann Macari Healey’s column about people, places and issues of everyday life appears every other week.

District says high school students aren’t limited Block schedule not perfect, but accomplishing its goals, administrators say By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com Midway through its second year in Douglas County high schools, the block schedule implemented in 2012-13 continues to draw mixed reviews from some parents, recent graduates and current students. District leaders acknowledge that some principals limited the number of classes students could take during the first year of the block schedule, but said they made changes this year to ensure that scenario wasn’t repeated. “This last year, we told (principals), `Let students take the classes they want to take and we’ll support them if it becomes too much of a burden,’” assistant superintendent of secondary education Dan McMinimee said. “Our direction was, `Don’t limit

students.’” Two schools got that additional support. Ponderosa High School received an additional $178,000 and Castle View almost $458,000 to hire more teachers. Under the block schedule, students and teachers meet every other day for extended time periods rather than meeting every day for shorter periods. In most Douglas County schools, eight 45-minute sessions are offered one day a week, then split into two days each of four 90-minute classes the remainder of the week. That translates into correspondingly longer off-periods, which means big spans of free time for upperclassmen, with two or three off-periods. It also drops instructional time by about 10 hours per class. Throughout a student’s high school career, that’s 240 hours — the equivalent of six work weeks. District leaders said the change was needed to address a predicted budget shortfall that later proved inaccurate, reduce class sizes and retain electives. Because budget constraints didn’t allow DCSD to add new high school teachers, almost all

• TEACHERS see fewer students during the day, giving • WITH the increased span of teaching time, longer

• TEACHERS see students fewer days a week, which fosters • IF a student misses a day under the block schedule, that student is missing more than a day’s worth of instruction. • IT is difficult to cover the necessary material for Advanced Placement courses in the time allotted.

• IN Douglas County, educators are carrying a heavier workload than under the previous schedule, with each teaching an additional class. • UPPERCLASSMEN have more unsupervised time and all students spend less time in class. Most information from the National Education Association

were taught additional classes — six classes out of the eight periods instead of the previous five of seven. Douglas County High School Principal

Douglas County students’ views vary regarding block schedule By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com Douglas County School District graduates and current students don’t share common opinions on the high school block schedule. While a current ThunderRidge High School student gives the schedule an A, a recent graduate saw and experienced problems with it. “I love it,” ThunderRidge High School senior Kianna Nguyen said. “At my school, they allow seniors to take whatever classes they need to take. “I’m taking four AP (Advanced Placement) classes. I also do concurrent enrollment at ACC (Arapahoe Community College). It’s really nice for me because I have time to do all those classes and do

my homework.” Nicole Scheuerman, who graduated from ThunderRidge in 2013, also liked the time allowed by off-periods to do homework. But the negatives outweigh the positives in her mind. As a senior, Scheuerman said a scarcity of electives left her with three off-periods. She spent that time working as a teacher’s assistant, but said other students used their free time differently. “There were many kids who’d just go home and not stay at school, or go off for lunch and skip the rest of the day if they only had one class,” she said. “High schoolers don’t make the right decisions all the time. There’s a lot of freedom I don’t think should be given to juniors, seniors. You shouldn’t have half a day off from

school; you should be in school learning, trying to better yourself and succeed, and kids don’t grasp that concept.” Nguyen said friends who graduated from ThunderRidge last year reported no problems getting into the colleges of their choice. But a Douglas County High School graduate said the three off-periods common to many seniors can give college admissions officers a negative impression. Rigor is “one of the main factors colleges consider when you’re applying,” said Bill Kakenmaster, a freshman at American University. “They don’t want to see you slack off. The feeling some students got was that we were getting shortchanged.” McMinimee said block schedules are common nationwide and not a barrier for

prospective college students. “My experience has been it’s never the type of schedule you’re on,” he said. “It’s the GPA (grade point average), the test scores, the rigor of classes you take.” Several websites on college admission criteria concur that rigor is an important consideration. “The grades you achieve in classes throughout high school … are obviously important, but the courses that you elect to take and the rigor of the courses you select are probably even more important to the admissions committee,” according to collegebasic.com. “High school is a time to prepare for the rigor of college, and the admissions committee must be certain that you can easily handle the academic rigor at their college and find success at the post-secondary level.”

Library of Congress stores photos, letters By Ryan Boldrey

rboldrey@ourcoloradonews. com Former Marine Corps Sgt. Lou Seago had so many close calls in World War II that he almost didn’t make it home alive. And if it weren’t for the Library of Congress’ Veterans History Project, his tales of fortitude might have been forever lost. The project, initiated in 2000, now has more than 70,000 oral histories — soon to include Seago’s stories of Saipan and Iwo Jima — and other mementos. With help from local institu-

“I think we’re all in a better place,” he said. “We’ve been allowed to save programs and reduce our ratios in the classrooms.” The schedule is based on freshmen and sophomores taking seven classes, juniors six and seniors five or six, Kappas said, but requests for additional classes are always considered. “We try not to ever turn a student away based on their question or demand,” Kappas said. Highlands Ranch High School students were not limited with the introduction of the block schedule, Principal Jerry Goings said. “We put 10.25 in. suggestions on what they could and couldn’t do, but we never put a limit on them,”

tions across the country — such as Douglas County Libraries — those oral histories and original materials are being collected before time runs out for older veterans such as Seago. Before shipping the documents and interviews to D.C., the library district also retains copies of all area veterans’ histories at the Philip S. Miller Branch in Castle Rock, and visitors can make an appointment to view them at any time. One can also listen or read the transcripts of about half of the 100 interviews already done by visiting www. douglascountyhistory.org. “We try to play the role of facilitator,” said DCL archivist Adam Speirs. “We create the space where these things can

happen, but it’s a volunteerdriven project ... what we do is make sure all the paperwork gets filled out and everything is preserved correctly.” The library will celebrate its 10th year of involvement in the project from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. Nov. 16, at the Philip S. Miller Library, 100 S. Wilcox St. in Castle Rock. Local veterans who have participated will share their experiences, while a group called Remembering Our Veterans will demonstrate how they share veteran stories.

he said. “We worked with every single kid individually to make sure their educational needs were met. It’s not the perfect system. But we were still able to operate the schools on less money.” Students are not required to take three off-periods, but some choose to, he said. “It does seem like our kids have more free time and our teachers have less,” Goings said. “I don’t know if that’s a good thing. Kids are making choices, whether or not that choice is right for them. But a lot of kids do use their time in meaningful ways.” Both principals credit their teachers for taking on additional duties. “The one major recognition and kudos goes to the teachers,” Kappas said. “They’re most definitely working harder. But that has opened the doors of opportunity for the kids.”

Goings echoed him. “The biggest sacrifice was on teachers,” he said. “If the money was there right now, I would come back with a derivative of what we’re doing now; I probably would look at a five-of-seven with some block like we’re doing now.” That schedule would help teachers, he said, but added, “I’ve got to make sure my class sizes continue to be at a good level. The year before (the block schedule), they were not. I don’t think having classes of 35, 36 kids was a good situation.” Staffing and other financial problems pre-dated the current administration and impacted schools statewide,” Goings said. “We got a little more money this year but we still are not even close to being funded at the level we were in 2007,” he said. “No school in the state of Colorado, after the economic downtown, is where it was.”

Longtime Parker eatery set to close Warhorse Inn owner to tackle new pursuits By Chris Michlewicz

cmichlewicz@ourcoloradonews.com The Warhorse Inn, arguably the most well-known independent restaurant in Parker, is closing its doors after 30 years. Stevan Strain, the venerable owner of the Warhorse Inn, recently turned 60 and is in the process of selling because he wants to take on new pursuits. The beloved restaurant has been a fixture of East Mainstreet in downtown Parker since it opened in 1983. “It’s been a great privilege and adventure, and an educational thing to be in this business for 30 years,” Strain said in his distinctive Southern accent. The Warhorse Inn has been the site of anniversary dinners, Mother’s Day brunches, business transactions, retirement parties and political campaign kickoffs, among many other events. Debbie Lewis, who celebrated her election to Parker Town Council at the eatery in 2000 and again in 2012, says it has become part of “the fabric of the community.” “It’s hard to see something like that go. It’s been here for so long,” said Lewis, who has been a regular customer at the Warhorse, as it’s known locally, for all 30 years of its existence. Strain has kept the doors open for nearly the last year to enable his 27 employees to find new jobs. Now that he is down to just six workers, the Warhorse is only open Wednesday through Saturday for lunch and dinner. Strain spent 40 years in the restaurant business, and although he is unsure what his future holds, he is satisfied with his decision to sell. He wants time to reflect on his next venture without having the pend-

ing sale weighing down on him, he said, before adding a final pitch: “If anyone is interested in coming in to get Parker’s best burger or our mushrooms tempura, this is the time to do it. Once it’s gone, it will not be the same recipes. It will be under a new name.” Strain is in final negotiations with a group that wants to honor the downtown district’s heritage with a new restaurant called the Parker Garage. It will pay homage to an iconic garage and gas station that was built in the same spot in 1916. “I believe the restaurant we’re trying to bring in has a great chance of being the No. 1 restaurant in Parker,” Strain said. “It’s unlike anything that’s ever been here before.” The Warhorse Inn has become an institution, one that has been a constant presence for longtime residents. Lewis described it as “Parker’s Cheers,” referring to the 1980s sitcom based on a Boston bar where everybody knows your name. Upon hearing the news of its impending closure, Lewis’ 29-year-old daughter shed a few tears. During a recent visit home, Lewis’ daughter ordered every one of her favorite dishes in one meal. Lewis said locals will miss the friendly, “come-asyou-are” atmosphere. “It’s the passing of an era,” she said. “The older you get, the more difficult it is to lose these things.” Strain was the winner of the 2004 Cornerstone Award, an honor that celebrates an individual’s contributions to the community. He has been on numerous volunteer boards and continues to serve on the Douglas County Planning Commission, the Douglas County Open Space Advisory Commission and the Parker Foundation board of directors. When asked if he will stay in Parker, he emphatically answers: “without a shadow of a doubt.” There is no specific timeline for the closure of the Warhorse and opening of the Parker Garage.

Resident finds injured pilot after crash Small plane hit power lines above Castle Rock ravine By Virginia Grantier

vgrantier@ourcoloradonews.com Jennifer Frieling, 40, of Castle Rock, was sewing a daughter’s Halloween costume at 7 p.m. Oct. 28 when she heard an airplane engine that “sounded way too close.” “I started getting up — and heard a boom,” she said. Frieling said she opened the slidingglass-door drapes at her home — which backs onto open space in the 1600 block of Aquamarine Way — and saw sparks above trees in a ravine about 100 feet away. After calling 911, Frieling grabbed a headlamp and a flashlight and a coat. She said out there in the fog, she could only see about five to 10 feet ahead of her, but soon spotted, down in the ravine, broken branches and then the plane’s red tail wing. And at 7:08 p.m. she called 911, again, to report a downed plane. She said she started hollering down into the gulch, “Hello, can someone hear me?” She said she heard nothing and was considering going down there, although she could smell fuel, “stuff burning,” when she happened to shine her flashlight to the right and saw someone about 15 to 20 feet away near the ravine’s edge. Frieling said the woman, who appeared middle-aged, was flat on her back, arms out, perpendicular to her body, and she wasn’t moving. Still on the phone with dispatch, Frieling felt for a pulse and then saw the woman’s nostrils flare and Frieling asked if she could hear her. “Then she moaned,” Frieling said.

Castle Rock

She saw flashlights on the other side of the gulch. It was Castle Rock police officers, who then alerted firefighters, who were there in about 30 seconds, she estimated. Castle Rock Fire Chief Art Morales later related that the pilot — who was conscious and able to tell them she was the plane’s sole occupant and also told of icing problems — was unable to stand, so she ha

north-south power lines that are about 100 to 150 feet above the ravine. He said it looks like the plane, luckily, slid for a time along the steel-cable lines which are built to withstand tons of ice, much more than the weight of the single-engine plane — and then the plane dropped into the ravine. Morales said rescue personnel were able to get her to a nearby trauma center within about 45 minutes of the crash. The crash remains under investigation. The plane is a Glasair Aviation Sportsman GS-II experimental airplane, said Karen McGrath, a Castle Rock spokeswoman. And Peter Knudson, a spokesman for the National Transportation Safety Board, said Oct. 29 he hadn’t heard yet from an investigator assigned to the case and so didn’t have information to report. But he did say the plane’s registration number is N535SP. According to Flight Aware, a flighttracking website, that plane left Yampa Valley Regional Airport in Hayden, Colo., at 5:45 p.m. the day of the crash. Its destination was Front Range Airport. Morales said he expected the pilot would be released from the hospital in the next day or two. Frieling, who said she and her husband built their home there in 2004 knowing it was under a flight path, said she loves watching the planes pass overhead. And her reaction to having a plane come so close to her home is that planes are everywhere. One could drop out of the sky anywhere and “if it’s your time, it’s your time,” she said. “God is ultimately in control (so) I live life to the fullest each day and don’t worry about the ‘what ifs,’” she said.

opinions / yours and ours

For all who chew, this spud’s for you There are few things better than a baked potato, but you must never have one before Sept. 22. It’s very bad luck if you do. To be safe, I don’t bake one until the day the clocks fall back. This year that was Nov. 3. In French, a potato is a “pomme de terre”: an apple from the earth. Apples are great too, but you can’t put sour cream or bacon bits on them. French fries in French are “les frites.” Makes no sense. I couldn’t explain why baked potatoes are so wonderful when they are so ordinary and abundant any better than Katharine Hepburn’s description of Spencer Tracy. Hepburn compared Tracy to a baked potato. “A baked potato is pure,” she said. “It’s of the earth, and it’s dependable, that was Spencer.” We rarely had baked potatoes when I was growing up. We had mashed potatoes,

and they’re almost as good as baked potatoes. I played with my mashed potatoes, however. It’s difficult to play with baked potatoes, so immediately you feel more grown up. I am a miserable cook, but I can bake a potato. They are foolproof, unless you take them out of the oven too soon, which I have done. Then they are crunchy, and not so good. Baked potatoes should be prepared when the weather breaks, when summer has packed up, and autumn registers for a while, before winter settles in.

question of the week

Will Fox’s absence hurt the Broncos? After head coach John Fox’s emergency medical procedure that will keep him away from the Broncos’ sidelines for a month or two, Colorado Community Media stopped by the Sports Authority and Target in Highlands Ranch’s Town Center and asked local residents what sort of impact they thought Fox’s absence would have on the team.

“It won’t (have any impact). Peyton is the quarterback, he’s the coach.” — Brandon Nelon, Littleton

“I don’t think we will miss him too much. Del Rio is a good interim coach, and we have Peyton.” — Chris Mueller, Highlands Ranch

“I don’t think it will affect them. I think Jack Del Rio is quite capable. He has proven himself as a head coach.” — Katie Allison, Highlands Ranch

“I don’t think it will affect them; we’ve got Peyton. He could be the coach, the quarterback, he can do whatever.” — Angelina Heuchert, Centennial

Exit onto road less traveled “Two roads diverged in a wood, and I — I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.” From the Robert Frost poem, “The Road Not Taken.” Have you been there, faced with a tough decision or at a crossroad in your life? And if so, did you take the road less traveled or did you follow the path where the ground had been cleared and maybe just a little bit easier to traverse? I have found myself at that decision point on more than one occasion, a true crossroad in my life. And maybe it’s the closet poet in me and huge fan of Robert Frost, but I, in most cases, seem to take the road less traveled. In most cases it has served me well and set me on a new course, adventurous tour, and wild ride. But just as the poem reads, “… and that has made all the difference.” And then there have been those few times where I followed the masses, accepted the easy path, went along to get along, and I found myself either bored or disappointed, always wondering what would have been or could have been had I chosen the road less traveled. You see, I am not a very good “yes” man, and when I find myself at a decision point, especially a critical decision point, I need to be able to evaluate my options and determine what most others might choose to do, and dig in deeper to the “why” behind their decisions. And this is what usually triggers my decision to try an alternate route. When people share with me where they are in the crossroads of their own life, I often encourage them to take the time to clearly write out all of the op-

There may be no better dinner on a snowy evening than a baked potato. It is a simple and honest meal or side dish. Compare this to lobster. You don’t have to euthanize a potato. Compare baking a potato to homemade lasagna or Thai pretzel chicken. You just pre-heat the oven, foil-wrap or olive-oil the potato, and then go do something else for a couple of hours — unless you microwave it. Which I never do. For some reason, I prefer to bake potatoes. It’s a part of their charm. I speed-dial frozen entrees all the time, but I don’t want to speed-dial a potato. I’d add some thoughts about the Irish potato famine, but it’s unpleasant, and I want a pleasant column for a change. No complaints or grudges, or proposals of prison time for tailgaters. This surprised me: “China is now the world’s largest potato-producing country, and nearly a third of the world’s potatoes are harvested in China and India.” India? My No. 1 television program is “Modern

D.C. must grow up In stark contrast to Washington’s dysfunction, which brought us a 16-day government shutdown and the risk of default in October, Coloradans know what it means to do their jobs day in and day out. Across the state, and in some cases as they recovered from catastrophic flooding, workers in Colorado continued to carry out their duties and meet their responsibilities, in light of the paralysis in Washington. From police officers to teachers, business owners to assembly-line workers, we proved that Colorado doesn’t shut down. To highlight this point, immediately following the shutdown, we traveled across the state to work side-by-side with Coloradans who are working hard day in and day out. Despite challenges they face, the workers we met with were meeting their obligations, providing for their families, and contributing to our economy. At Adam’s Mountain Cafe, an eatery in Manitou Springs, the restaurant’s owner, Farley McDonough, quickly put me to work. Between filling waters and wiping down tables, I talked with customers about the hardships and losses they’ve suffered as a result of the mudslides and flooding in Manitou this summer. They also shared with me their frustration with the dysfunction in Washington. Later, when riding along with Officer Marcus Juliano on his beat in Pueblo, I witnessed his dedication to his community as he responded to call after call well into the night. In Fowler, at the family-owned Jensen’s Blue Ribbon Processing, Jerry Jensen, the meatpacking plant’s owner, explained the challenges and costs of competing with

The News-Press tions, all of the pros and cons, and to visualize each option as if they actually made the decision to pursue that option. When we are faced with a decision point or at a crossroads, we should surround ourselves with strong friends, wise advisers and people we absolutely trust to be our sounding board and help us walk through our options and thought processes around each important decision we need to make. Do I take more risks than I should? Yes. Are they educated risks or guesses? In most cases. Do I follow my heart, my gut, and attempt to balance that with what is going through my head? Yes.

Marvels.” I can’t get enough. Now and then the History Channel has a “Modern Marvels” marathon and I am glued to it. Season 15, Episode 3: “Potato.” Originally aired January 28, 2010. It covers everything about potatoes, and the narrator, justifiably, makes the ordinary potato sound like a major contributor to civilization. The narrator, Lloyd Sherr, has one of the great voices in television. His stage name is Max Raphael, which is a combination of his sons’ names, Max and Raphael. He makes the potato sound heroic. Idaho is sometimes called the “Potato State,” but its real nickname is the “Gem State,” which isn’t very inspiring. You’re in the clear: It’s past Sept. 22, the first day of autumn. Have a baked potato tonight.

large companies. Jerry works hard every day to keep his doors open. At U.S. Tractor and Harvest Inc. in Alamosa, mechanics explained the difficulties small farms are facing due to drought and high feed costs, not to mention the fact that Washington has yet to reauthorize the farm bill. Whether it was substitute teaching in Denver, working at Brown Cycles and Edgewater Brewery in Grand Junction, or hauling onions at Tuxedo Farms in Olathe, the contrast between these hard-working Coloradans and the political antics going on in Washington was crystal-clear. Though the government has reopened — at least temporarily — the effects of this ridiculous and manufactured crisis were undeniably damaging to the country and to Colorado. As we look forward, now is the time for Washington to get its act together and work on priorities important to Coloradans. This includes fixing our broken immigration system, passing the farm bill, and most importantly crafting a balanced bipartisan budget. Democrat Michael Bennet has represented Colorado in the U.S. Senate since 2009.

Reform train stays on track Candidates favoring current school board sweep race By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com The Douglas County School District likely will continue with its education reform efforts, as four candidates who endorse those changes won their races for board seats. The Douglas County Republican-endorsed slate of candidates, including two incumbents and two newcomers who support the current board’s education reform efforts, prevailed over four candidates heavily supported by community-based organizations. Incumbents Doug Benevento and Meghann Silverthorn, and Judi Reynolds and Jim Geddes will be sworn at a school board meeting, but not until the election results are certified. Since the county’s Board of Canvass isn’t set to meet until Nov. 21, that could be as late as Dec. 3. Board vice president Kevin Larsen said he wants to keep the district moving forward. “Even when things are excellent, you always want to be looking ahead to what’s going to keep your kids ahead in the future world,” he said. “I don’t want us to be the best buggy whip maker. The automobile revolutionized the way people get around. On a different level, we are now connecting the world in so many ways that were never before possible. “I want our district to continue to prepare the kids so that when they are entering the world, they’re going to apply all these things they’ve learned to be successful, keep our country and community on the leading edge and having satisfying lives.” Challenger candidates Barbra Chase, Bill Hodges, Julie Keim and Ronda Scholting represented a portion of the community advocating for major change in the board’s direction. Their areas of concern covered a broad range of issues, including

a disconnect among the board, community members and teachers. “We just witnessed parent voices being silenced in their own school district,” said Susan Meek, a board member with Douglas County Parents, one of the community groups supporting the challenger candidates. “So many volunteers have worked tirelessly to ensure that a significant portion of the community has a voice on the school board, and what we witnessed is outside funders and influences trumped parents. The record number of voters in this school board election demonstrates that people in our community care deeply about being represented. “For elected individuals to ignore, belittle and intimidate a significant portion of the community is inexcusable and will lead to further turmoil and division in Douglas County. We will continue to advocate for our children’s future and our future as this board continues to dismantle one of the highest-performing school districts in the state.” Larsen, whose seat was not up for election, said he already had made plans he hopes will bridge community divides, “regardless of the outcome”. “In a lot of ways, the vote is a bit of a referendum on which way the community wants the school district to go,” he said. “We have to figure out a way to get everybody together regardless of their view on the outcome, to make sure this is the best district it can be. I do think we need to get to where we can have a conversation about policy and issues and get beyond the personal hurt and attacks the campaign has tended to bring.” Larsen wants to see changes in the meeting structure to allow more public engagement as well as open community forums. Meek noted that the vast majority of campaign funds for the newly elected board members came from outside the county, while almost all the money donated to the challengers was given by Douglas County residents.

Castle Pines mayoral race nearly dead heat All city balloting is close in early returns By Virginia Grantier

vgrantier@ourcoloradonews.com It was close to a dead heat in the Castle Pines mayoral race, according to the initial vote report about 7:30 p.m. Nov. 5 at the Douglas County elections office in Castle Rock. Mayor Jeffrey Huff had 1,587 votes, about 51 percent, and his challenger, Dana Hall, had 1,534 votes, 49 percent. Castle Pines has 6,905 eligible voters, according to an election official. At 7:28 p.m., the election office had received 4,269 Castle Pines ballots. In Ward 2, as of the initial report, Resa Labossiere had 85 percent of the vote, leading Michael Graczyk by a vote of 772 to 137. The Ward 3 race was closer with Roger Addlesperger having 58 percent of the vote, leading Councilmember Jaime Edwards by a vote of 523 votes to 379.

Rex Lucas, who is running unopposed in Ward 1 for the seat of Kathy DesRosiers, who decided not to run again, had 43 votes in the first round of returns. For the city’s two ballot questions, one was going down, the other too close to call. On the question of whether to make the elected treasurer position an appointed job, 58 percent didn’t want the change, by a vote of 1,759 to 1,273. If that trend holds, the sole treasurer candidate, Gregg Fisher, a computer science and network design company owner, will have the job. In the initial vote report, he had 2,368 votes. The question on whether to make the elected position of city clerk an appointed one was closer but going down with only 1,504 voters favoring the change and 1,529, 50.41 percent, voting no. In the city clerk position since Oct. 28 is Seth Katz, an attorney and Castle Pines resident who applied to fill the position left vacant by interim clerk Edwards, who left in August to fill the vacant Ward 3 city council seat — and was running to keep the seat in this election.

clear mandate about the direction we are going.” Silverthorn said, “I think the voters have clearly said: ‘We want you to continue modernizing education,’ but let’s talk about how we are doing that.”

Challenger plans recount

After the night’s earliest release of partial election results, which didn’t look good for the challenger candidates, those opposing the current board’s direction said they were still optimistic. “We’re on the right side,” said Keim. “I really believe we have the community’s support and we’ll see that at the end.” “I’m a little nervous, a little surprised,” said Chase. The challenger candidates were gathered with about 200 supporters at Stumpy’s Pizza in Castle Rock. The mood in the restaurant, jubilant before the 7:30 p.m. announcement of initial returns in the Republican-endorsed slates’ favor, turned somber, expressions of concern replacing smiles. One challenger candidate already appeared to be heading toward a recount. “We have already got a plan for a recount,” Sue Kober, Julie Keim’s campaign manager, announced to the crowd gathered at Stumpy’s after the second wave of results was released. “We have an attorney who said he would help us pro bono. “This is about our teachers, this is about our students, this is about our community. We are not done.” Those results still showed the pro-board candidates in the lead, though Kober insisted it was too close to call. Kober was hostess for the evening, announcing results to the approximately 200 people gathered at Stumpy’s to support the challenger candidates. The evening of Election Day brings to a close years of school-board campaigning that began with the conclusion of the 2011 Douglas County School Board election, and culminated during the last few months with a series of community-led protests,

emotional school board meetings, teacher resignations, lawsuits and high-dollar campaigns that heightened divisions within the community. In 2011 and in 2009, board seats went to Douglas County Republican-supported candidates who support the education reform policies now in place. The reforms include a court-stymied voucher program, and controversial teacher evaluation and pay systems. Both the reform policies and a fractious campaign have drawn the nation’s attention. Some say Douglas County is a testing ground for the reform effort, a characterization board opponents decry as subjecting local children to experimentation. The school board and administration say the changes made and those still planned by current officials will make Douglas County a leader in the nation, and better prepare children for a rapidly changing world. Critics contend the seven-member board is acting according to an outsidedriven agenda to privatize public education, and has withheld money from classrooms as it cut the parents’ and teachers’ voices from the district. The winning candidates join school board vice president Kevin Larsen, and board members Craig Richardson and Justin Williams. Staff writers Jane Reuter and Ryan Boldrey contributed to this report.

spokeswoman. The project, called the North Meadows Extension, is being funded in part by a 2005 bond issue and a $10.5 million contribution from Douglas County, and is expected to be done in late 2015. The project involves among other things construction of two new interchanges, one at Interstate 25, and one over U.S. Highway 85 — as well as two bridges, one over Plum Creek and Union Pacific Railroad, and the other over Burlington Northern/Sante Fe railroad tracks, Sailer said. Also involved is getting easements from about 30 homeowners whose backyards back up to North Meadows Drive near the high school so that a sound wall can be built to mitigate noise for them. Another sound wall will be needed for The Pines Apartments west of U.S. Highway 85, as the new road heads west between those apartments to the south and Castle Pines Village to the north. “This is a massive project, something we don’t typically see (at the municipal government level),” Sailer said. He said one of the major challenges, which will be dealt with during the project’s last phase, Phase 3, will be poor soils in an alluvial-fan area where the interchange needs to be built over U.S. 85. It will mean that instead of bringing in dirt and building on that, workers will have to dig down to bedrock and build structures to support the interchange, Sailer explained. The resulting interchange will

Dealing with such issues will be a Greenwood Village design and engineering firm, Tsiouvaras Simmons Holderness, and the general contractor, Edward Kraemer & Sons Inc., a Wisconsin firm with a regional office based in Castle Rock that has a national reputation, particularly as a bridge specialist, and is currently involved in the I-70 twin tunnel project. “They’ve got a great reputation … We have such an outstanding team,” Sailer said.

Castle Rock Town Council recently approved a $2.34 million contract to start construction of part of Phase 1, basically dirt work and some utility work in the area of Castle View High School. That area is shown in yellow on a map that can be viewed at h t t p : / / c r g ov. c o m / D o c u m e n t Ce n t e r / View/5235. “We are thrilled that the day is here that we will see earth moving on this project, after years of preparation and hard work by many,” Mayor Paul Donahue said after the approval. “This is truly a historic milestone for the Town of Castle Rock.”

“They’ve been enjoying every minute,” Kamita said. “They experienced their first Wendy’s ever. They were splurging at Park Meadows (mall). I’m sure the highlight is going to be what they experience here with the students.” A change in a district policy limiting the allowable number of foreign exchange students made the ninestudent visit possible. On Sept. 3, Castle View students successfully urged the school board to change the previous limit of one foreign language student for every 300 enrolled students. The ratio was lifted, allowing the principal to determine the allowed number of exchange students based on available resources. Kjeseth and his students planned a welcome party, volleyball game and a Japanese/Western-themed dance among other activities. “It’s been our great pleasure to host the students from Shihoro,” Kjeseth said. “Every exchange visit reminds us that the key to international understanding and friendship is not simply dependent on language; rather it is influenced more by a person’s heart and willingness to open up to others.” The Castle Rock stop was the focal point of the students’ 10-day trip, which ended at California’s Universal Studios.

Street construction nearing end in Lone Tree Park Meadows Drive motorists to get Thanksgiving reprieve By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com Lone Tree area residents will have one common item for which to be grateful Thanksgiving Day: The end of construction on Park Meadows Drive. Until then, local officials urge drivers impacted by the work to take deep breaths and exercise patience. Construction on the street that extends between Acres Green Drive and Quebec Street has narrowed the four-lane throughway to two bumpy

paths. Adding to the angst, drivers turning into businesses along Park Meadows have to wait for an opening in the single through lane, stacking up traffic behind them. It’s an annoyance with which project leaders are keenly aware. “Believe us, we have the same frustration,” said John Cotten, Lone Tree’s public works director. “We are pushing them and the contractor’s doing everything he can. But things can only happen so quickly. We would be grateful for a little more patience.” The job is expected to wrap up just before Thanksgiving, a week later than planned. Cotten said that’s because the paving subcontractor’s portion of the work is delayed a week. Country Buffet general manager

Jim Lamphere hopes Cotten’s prediction is accurate; Thanksgiving is the busiest day of the year at his Park Meadows Drive restaurant. “It’s inconvenienced a lot of our guests, but it’s not really hurting our business per se,” Lamphere said. “They’re doing their best. I appreciate all the jobs it’s creating. It’s just, `Hurry up.’” Work began on the street in July, with crews taking a break in late August to work on another project before returning for the second phase. The reward for all this angst, Cotten said, will be a much nicer street. Concrete on the street had been failing for years. The $1.2 million project is jointly financed by the City of Lone Tree and Park Meadows Metropolitan District.

Concert aids flood victims

Art offers view of French society ‘Passport to Paris’ at Denver museum By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com Three related shows meld together flawlessly at the Denver Art Museum to give local art lovers a welcoming visit to Paris and its environs. Beloved artists appear in more than one collection, showing how they bridged across years and segments of society and from academic standards to joyful renderings of sunshine and the outdoors. “Passport to Paris” continues through Feb. 9, 2014, in the Hamilton Building. “Court to Cafe: Three Centuries of French Artworks from the Wadsworth Atheneum” is the entry point, and it features 50 works from the collection of the famous museum in Hartford, Conn. These works begin with 17th-century paintings of religious scenes, mythological subjects, landscapes, still lifes and genre scenes and extend to the early 19th century. This DAM installation in the second floor Anschutz Gallery is especially welldesigned and features high color, handstenciled walls, architectural moldings and decorative art from the museum’s own collection, such as damask chairs and small furniture pieces. Music plays in the background. Another pleasing touch is the inclusion of several stylish white dresses, matching the ones depicted in paintings of intimate home scenes. They are on loan from the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Since works range from the early 1600s to the early 1900s, the visitor finds early works by Edgar Degas, Camille Pissaro, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Paul Cezanne, Vincent Van Gogh, Henri de Toulouse Lautrec and Claude Monet here, plus later works in the two subsequent exhibits, weaving threads of the story together. Next stop is “Drawing Room: an Intimate Look at French Drawings from the Esmond Bradley Martin Collection,” a collection that is kept at the DAM, although its owner lives elsewhere. It is on the second floor in the Martin and McCormick Gallery. Included are 39 works on paper in a range of techniques. Sketches by artists from across the time period draw a viewer up close to appreciate the lines — in fact, there are some magnifying lenses provided

“Nympheas (Water Lilies)” by Claude Monet, 1907 oil on canvas, is loaned by the Wadsworth Atheneum.

if you go “Passport to Paris” continues through Feb. 9 at the Denver Art Museum, 13th Avenue between Broadway and Bannock, with a special exhibition ticket that includes all three segments plus general museum admission. Tickets cost $12 members/$22 adult non-members, with discounts. See denverartmuseum.org or call 720-865-5000. There will be extended holiday hours — again see the website.

for those who need assistance in appreciating the delicate works. For the first time, Impressionist paintings from the Frederic C. Hamilton collection are shown in what may be the most popular segment: “Nature as Muse.” Some works from the DAM collection are blended into this collection in the Gallagher Family Gallery on the first floor, which focuses on landscape. In a press tour, DAM

director Christoph Heinrich pointed out that oil paints became available in tubes in the mid-1800s, enabling artists to work outdoors in that medium, “en plein air.” Because many Colorado artists prefer to work outdoors, it is expected that they will especially relate to “Nature as Muse” with its sunlit orchards and gardens. Related programming is extensive throughout the exhibit time. See denverartmuseum.org for scheduling. Of particular note is a collaboration with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra, which provided a soundtrack for the Court to Cafe exhibit in advance and featured French music in its Nov. 1-3 concerts. Every Saturday at 1 p.m., various symphonic ensembles will present a 45-minute performance at the museum, featuring French masterworks with commentary to place them in context. The first-floor studio space will become a drawing studio, with local artists demonstrating and teaching on weekends.

Colorado Rising, a benefit concert for flood relief featuring performances by Dave Matthews, The Fray, Big Head Todd and The Monsters, Wesley Schultz, Jeremiah Fraites and Neyla Pekarek of The Lumineers, Devotchka and Nathaniel Rateliff, raised $650,000 on Oct. 27 at the 1stBank Center in Broomfield. And from what I was told through emails and Facebook posts, the evening of unprecedented entertainment from Colorado musicians was a smash hit. The money raised will go to www. liveunitedcolorado.org, the United Ways of Colorado Flood Recovery Fund. “It’s no surprise that the entire music community from musicians to fans stepped up in a time of need for Colorado,” said Chuck Morris, president and CEO of concert organizer AEG Live Rocky Mountains. “Thank you all.”

Trivia at Inverness

WorldDenver, a nonprofit community organization dedicated to advancing an understanding of global affairs and cultures, is hosting its first Global Cup Challenge trivia fundraiser from 6 to 10 p.m. Nov. 15 at the Inverness Hotel and Conference Center in Arapahoe County. The evening, with beverages sponsored by Molson Coors Brewing Co., will begin with a pub-food-themed buffet dinner following by an international trivia competition. Teams of five will compete in five rounds of questions based on current affairs, geography, businesses and organizations as well as globally minded professionals testing their knowledge to win donated prizes and a year of bragging rights. Celebrity quiz masters include: Kay Landen and Joanne Posner-Mayer (event co-chairs), Carolyn Richards, Joe Megyesy, Katie Evans, Alice Anneberg, Laurie Zeller, Kim Savit, Beverley Simpson and Selena Dunham. Greg Dobbs and Anna Alejo will serve as celebrity quiz masters for the Challenge. Funds raised will support WorldDenver’s programs: Denver World Affairs Council, Young Professionals, International Visitor Leadership Program, Home Hospitality, GlobaLiteracy and WorldDenver Talks. For registration materials, event information and sponsorship opportunities, go to www.globalcupchallenge.org.

Bonnano ventures into Venue

Frank Bonanno is the Denver restaurant industry’s Energizer Bunny. And although he’s built an empire than includes seven restaurants, two bars and a pie shop, he’s busting a move into the hip Highland neighborhood by opening a sandwich shop in the former Venue Bistro space at 3609 E. 32nd Ave., according to a post at the blog www. denver.eater.com. Bonanno intends to offer gourmet sandwiches with housecured meats, according to the Eater story.

Memories filtered through family lens ‘99 Histories’ runs at Vintage Theatre

IF YOU GO “99 Histories” plays through Nov. 16 at Vintage Theatre, 1468 Dayton St., Aurora. Performances: 8 p.m. Fridays, Saturdays; 7 p.m. Sundays. Tickets: $25 at the door, $23 advance, $20 anytime seniors and students. 303-856-7830, theatre-espritasia.org.

By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ ourcoloradonews.com “99 Histories” by Korean dramatist Julia Cho follows a wellused and generally compelling design, one that draws in audience members of several age ranges — mother-daughter conflict and the histories behind it. Mothers, daughters, sisters and aunts in three generations are remembered in a story that is about a Korean-American family, but could translate to any nationality. The play runs through Nov. 16 and invites a visit from area theater lovers. It completes the first season of the new Theatre Esprit Asia company, formed by Maria Cho and Tria Xiong after they connected in the all-Asian cast of Vintage Theatre’s “Joy Luck Club” in May 2012. Skilled director Terry Dodd has brought together a polished cast and worked through the logistics of producing numerous scenes in the tight quarters of Vintage’s

The new Argyll space, renamed Argyll Whisky Beer, will undergo a remodel and expansion of the kitchen and bar area. The bar menu will include the largest whisky library in Colorado, according to Eater. Executive chef will be John Broening, who runs the kitchen at Thompson’s Le Grand Bistro.

Colorado eateries among best

More Denver and Boulder eateries are taking their rightful place alongside their bigger-city brethren on national “best” lists.

City unannounced. She is single, pregnant and agitated. Her mother, Sah-Jin (Sheila Ivy-Traister), is bewildered by her behavior — she was a talented young musician, a Juilliard student, who seems to have lost her way, her will to

Case in point: Here comes Travel + Leisure magazine’s 30 Best Italian Restaurants in the U.S., which included Frasca Food and Wine in Boulder on the lauded list. Said T+L: “Boulder isn’t the first place you’d look for one of America’s best Italian restaurants, but it certainly shouldn’t be last. The philosophy of master sommelier Bobby Stuckey and chef Lachlan Mackinnon-Patterson’s Italian restaurant in the shadow of the Rockies is based on the neighborhood restaurants in the subalpine region of northeast Italy — informal gathering places inspired by the cuisine and culture of Friuli.” The same story listed the best sushi and best vegetarian restaurants in the U.S., with Sushi Sasa in Denver and Leaf Vegetarian Restaurant in Boulder as the Colorado winners.

Boulder’s best biscuits

Not to be outdone by Travel + Leisure, Food and Wine magazine released its “best

Food and Wine said, “This 30-year-old diner is a Boulder mainstay (popular with both tourists and hippies) and is known for its tender buttermilk biscuits, made in regular and gluten-free versions. Regulars swear by the A.M. sandwich: a warm biscuit filled with a scrambled egg, melted cheddar, and a choice of ham, avocado or vegetarian sausage.”

Top spots

I told you last week that Lakewood was included in the Top 100 Best Places to Live on livability.com’s inaugural ranking, but that was only part of Colorado’s prized participation. Culinary Colorado’s Claire Walter (thanks, Claire!) pointed out that there’s more to the story. While Lakewood ranked No. 88 (besting Scottsdale at No. 89), Aurora scored No. 49, and Boulder came in at an impressive No. 2. Topping the lauded list was Palo

She finds mementos in the home that suggest a number of unknowns in her mother’s earlier life. Vignettes bring these bits of the past to the stage, as well as glimpses of a young girl, played by SunHee Seo, a freshman at ThunderRidge High School in Highlands Ranch, in her professional debut. Under Dodd’s direction, puzzle pieces fit together by the end of Act II, although the future remains something of a question mark. As is often the case with an engaging performance, one heads out into the dark speculating about the ways a story might move forward.

More specifically, the mystical “breathing” Wind Cave of the Black Hills is thought to be where the ancient gods delivered the ancestors of Red Cloud and his people.

Bob Drury, co-author of “The Heart of Everything That Is,” will appear at Tattered Cover/Colfax on Nov. 14. Courtesy photo When the “manifest destiny” proponents of the U.S. government eyed the potential gold in the Black Hills as fair game, there followed many years of broken treaties and fierce combat. These authors write in clear descriptive terms about the lands the Sioux controlled at one time — said to be about 20 percent of the contiguous

United States, shown on a map that extends from Iowa to Idaho and north into Montana. The Bozeman Trail, a main route for westward gold seekers and other settlers, ran through it. The writers also are skilled in describing the total philosophical disconnect between whites and Indians — not new information certainly, but particularly well stated. An autobiography by Red Cloud, dictated to a longtime friend, white trapper Sam Deon, was found, which offered new material. The extensive bibliography cites the many original sources the authors found, such as writings by the commander of Fort Phil Kearny, Col. Henry B. Carrington. These lend color throughout the book, including domestic details from women and grisly accounts of slaughter. On Dec. 21, a combative Capt. William J. Fetterman, sent out from the fort to protect a wood gathering train — and firmly instructed not to chase lurking Indians over the ridge — gave in to visions of glory and chased Indian scouts who had been teasing. (A final insult was when an insolent Crazy Horse mooned him and his troops, according to Drury and Clavin.) He led his limited number of about 80 Bluecoats into an ambush by about 2,000 waiting warriors, resulting in what is now called the Fetterman Massacre, in which all the members of the Fetterman party were killed.

‘Jazz Psalms Experience’ in Highlands Ranch Composer has finished more than 75 pieces By Sonya Ellingboe

Letterpress museum taking shape Much work to be done on old Englewood Depot By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com “Celebrate the Englewood Depot,” says a poster designed by Tom Parson, who has bought the old Englewood Santa Fe Depot from the city. The depot now sits empty on Dartmouth Avenue. Parson’s plan is to keep the historic facade intact, as a designated historic landmark, and create a “living museum” dedicated to letterpress typography, art and poetry, with a working print shop, which will also be a teaching facility and hopefully, a community meeting place. The poster uses 11 different typestyles from Parson’s extensive collection: Egyptian Clarendon Ornamented, Samoa, Gothic Concave Tuscan Condensed, Racine, Skeleton Antique, Latin Expanded, Bradley Italic, Gothic, P.T. Barnum, Mowry Antique and Palantino Italic. He printed it at his business, Now It’s Up to You, at his home in Denver, where he has about a dozen historic printing presses, about 2,500 fonts of metal type and hundreds of fonts of wooden type and thousands of antique printer’s cuts, ornaments and borders, which will go to the museum. For a period, he attended auctions every weekend, he said. He got interested in printing through a study of poetry, which is sometimes printed on the old presses in limited editions. His large library of poetry and typographic history will also have a place in the museum. His wife, Patti Parson, is managing producer for the PBS NewsHour, with responsibility for budgets and production staff news coverage, writing foundation grants that have secured millions, according to the couple’s proposal to the City of Englewood, presented Feb. 28. An open house to benefit the project was held on Oct. 26 at Ray Tomasso’s studio in Englewood, which houses many more antique printing presses, including a Washington Press, circa 1891, where depot volunteer Wilson Thomas was printing souvenir posters, one at a time. The organizers were selling subscriptions to a folio of letterpress prints contributed by artists around the world — to be delivered in the spring of 2014 — for donations starting at $150. Tom Parson said he and his wife are in the middle of setting a schedule for renovation of the interior, which involves bringing it up to ADA standards, adding heat, electricity, plumbing, handicap-accessible

Photo by Ray Tomasso bathrooms … and an east wall in the basement. They are also in the middle of setting up a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation, which will ease the process of getting donations. They have sufficient funds to renovate the old building, which will have a preservation easement on the facade, per state historical society standards. His start-up mailing list of 90 includes young art student/interns who have learned to make plastic printing plates with a computer, using the old typestyles; the guild of book workers and individual printing aficionados such as Wilson Thomas, who is also a teacher and musician who recently moved to Denver. There are a number of interested women also, involved with Etsy and the craft movement. He hopes to cooperate with city organizations and others to provide public access. The city’s community gardens are next to his property and he hopes the gardeners may want to meet at the museum on occasion, for example. A membership structure will be established in the future. “The biggest problem is the building itself,” which needs substantial work, Parson said. Architect friends are working on design solutions, which will include a lift for the handicapped from the main floor to basement, where the print shop will be established.

Centennial Airport activates noise monitors Facility on track to register 3,500 complaints in 2013 By George Lurie

glurie@ourcoloradonews.com The country’s second-busiest general aviation airport wants to be a good neighbor. So in an effort to help minimize the impact of noise from the more than 850 aircraft that take off and land at Centennial Airport every day, the Arapahoe County Public Airport Authority now employs a full-time “noise specialist” — and just finished installing 12 noise monitors in a wide area around the airport’s perimeter. The 22-foot-tall monitors, six located in Arapahoe County and six in Douglas County, were purchased with a $1.5 million grant from the FAA. According to Scott Drexler, Centennial Airport’s noise and planning specialist, the monitors will all be fully operational by the end of October. Airport officials also plan to utilize two additional mobile monitors that can be moved around in response to future noise complaints. “Just because your house isn’t right next to a monitor, it doesn’t mean that our system won’t be able to track the noise levels in your neighborhood,” said Drexler, who has worked at the airport for two years and been in his current job as noise specialist for five months. “Noise is very subjective,” he said. “Working here, you get used to it. It doesn’t bother me at all. And I actually live just a mile and a half from the airport.” But when the Centennial Airport Community Noise Roundtable was created in May 2009, aircraft engine noise had become a big concern for many living and working near the airport, which does not handle commercial airline traffic but still ranks as the nation’s 28th busiest airport in

One of 12 noise monitors installed by Centennial Airport. Courtesy photo overall operations. Drexler coordinates the noise roundtable meetings, which take place once a month at the Ramada Hotel adjacent to the airport. Roundtable participants include local elected officials, appointed representatives from the community, airport staff, the Federal Aviation Administration, Colorado Department of Transportation (Aeronautics Division) and airport users. Centennial City Councilman Keith Gardner represents the city at roundtable meetings. The Airport Authority contributed $75,000 to the noise monitor project, and Drexler estimates it will cost about $100,000 a year to operate program.

“The monitors all have weather stations that record wind speed and wind direction too,” Drexler said. Using radar data airport officials get from the FAA, information from the monitors will allow Drexler to correlate a “sound event” with a radar track of a specific aircraft. “That means monitors won’t mistake noise from passing vehicles for aircraft noise,” he said. Six of the monitors are powered by solar panels, six by electricity. In Centennial, there’s a monitor at Hunter’s Hill. Several are set up on airport property; one is located in Cherry Creek State Park; others are in Lone Tree, Castle Rock, Parker and Aurora. Airport officials are already receiving information from the monitors and plan to make the data available online beginning sometime in early January. Surrounded by 23 business parks, thousands of homes and located a scant 13 miles from downtown Denver, the airport’s motto is: “Global reach, local access.” When it opened on May 13, 1967, on 1,400 acres in unincorporated Arapahoe County, the facility was called the Arapahoe County Airport. It was renamed Centennial Airport in 1984. Today, its three runways, ranging in length from 4,800 feet to 10,000 feet, accommodate private and charter air traffic. According to a study released in October by the Colorado Division of Aeronautics, the airport contributes — directly and indirectly — an estimated $1.3 billion annually to the local economy. The airport’s busiest year was 1998, when more than 466,000 takeoffs and landings were logged. In 2012, Centennial registered 308,173 operations. “Summer is the busiest time of the year,” said Drexler. “More people are out flying. There’s more training aircraft operating.” In 2012, the airport logged about 2,000

noise complaints. “This year, we are close to 3,000 (complaints) already and are probably on track for 3,500,” Drexler said. Because aircraft have to both land and take off into the wind, bad weather tends to spur more noise complaints. “Bad weather impacts our runways operations,” Drexler said. “Instead of taking off to the south, when weather rolls in, aircraft usually have to take off to the north, where there’s a denser population in cities like Centennial and Greenwood Village.” Most noise complaints come in via the airport’s website. There’s also a “noise line” — 303-790-4709 — and Drexler said people often contact him directly with complaints. “Before the monitors went in, complaints were our only basis in determining noise issues,” said Drexler. “The monitors will help us identify more clearly noise impacts and help us understand if our voluntary noise abatement guidelines are working — and where we need to make adjustments.” Drexler said the largest aircraft currently flying into the airport is an Embraer Lineage 1000, a two-engine luxury jet that can carry up to 30 passengers. In the past, most noise complaints were generated by “the older jets,” Drexler said. “Now they tend to center around helicopters and older prop planes. The newer jets are much quieter.” Aircraft noise, he explained, often depends “on an individual aircraft’s configurations and settings. But there are some locations, like right off the end of the runway, where there is very little we can do” about noise. Drexler said airport officials often talk to pilots about “voluntary noise guidelines” and “where the noise-sensitive areas are located. The pilot community has always been very responsive,” he said. “They want to be good neighbors and definitely don’t want to see the airport go away.”

GALLERY OF GAMES

ARIES (Mar 21 to Apr 19) You enjoy the attention early in the week, but it might be a good idea to opt for some privacy by week’s end so that you can have more time to consider an upcoming decision. TAURUS (Apr 20 to May 20) You unearthed some surprising facts. Now you need to consider how to use them to your advantage. Meanwhile, it might be best to keep what you’ve learned secret for now. GEMINI (May 21 to Jun 20) A comment by a colleague piques your curiosity to know more. Best advice: You’ll find people more likely to offer information if you’re discreet when making your inquiries. CANCER (Jun 21 to Jul 22) Your energy levels begin to rise by midweek. This allows you to catch up with your heavy workload and still have plenty of get-up-and-go to go out on the town this weekend. LEO (Jul 23 to Aug 22) You’re probably roaring your head off about a perceived slight from a longtime critic. Ignore it. That person might just be trying to goad you into doing something you might later regret. VIRGO (Aug 23 to Sept 22) The early part of the week is open to spontaneity. Then it’s time to settle into your usual routine to get all your tasks done. A personal situation could require more attention from you. LIBRA (Sept 23 to Oct 22) A meeting of the minds on a workplace project might well develop into something more personal for Libras looking for romance. Aspects are also favorable for platonic relationships. SCORPIO (Oct 23 to Nov 21) A more-positive mood might be difficult to assume in light of a recent problem involving the health of someone special. But by week’s end, your emotional barometer should start to rise. SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 to Dec 21) Look for a changed attitude from a former adversary once he or she realizes you have your colleagues’ full support. Now you can refocus your energies on that workplace project. CAPRICORN (Dec 22 to Jan 19) This time, a difference of opinion might not be resolved in your favor. But be patient. It ultimately could all work out to your advantage, as new information begins to develop. AQUARIUS (Jan 20 to Feb 18) A tug of war develops between the artistic Aquarian’s creative aspect and his or her practical side. Best advice: Prioritize your schedule so you can give appropriate time to both. PISCES (Feb 19 to Mar 20) You could be entering a career phase awash with job-related demands. But avoid being swamped by the overflow and, instead, keep treading water as you deal with demands one by one. BORN THIS WEEK: You are an exceptionally loyal person, and you’re respected for your ability to keep the secrets entrusted to you. © 2013 King Features Synd., Inc.

Offensive outburst carries Huskies Douglas County rushes for over 500 yards in beating Legend By Jim Benton

jbenton@ourcoloradonews.com Douglas County has used the same game plan most of the season. The Huskies like to play physical and run the football. Douglas County rushed for 526 yards in a 64-34 first round Class 5A playoff victory over Legend Nov. 1 at Douglas County Stadium. Nothing will change Nov. 8 when 16th-seeded Douglas County (7-3) travels to Boulder to take on top-seeded Fairview (9-0) at Recht Field. “We’ve talked to our kids all year long about being physical and when you get in the playoffs, it is whoever is the top physical, injury-free team,” said Douglas County coach Jeff Ketron. Legend quarterback Peyton Remy passed for 368 yards and four touchdowns against the Huskies, and Ketron expects to face another aerial attack against Fairview. Fairview averages 328.1 yards per game passing. Senior quarterback Anders Hill has thrown for 2,865 yards and 27 touchdowns. “They are the No. 1 seeded team in the state,” pointed out Ketron. “They are a lot like Legend at throwing the football around. They have a great quarterback, a great receiver and we just have to go play physical football. Obviously our offense will be our best defense. “That’s how it is whether it is college in the bowl season or the NFL, when you get to the later part of the year the offenses are better than the defenses. It’s just that it takes a long time for offenses to jell, and when they do then they are successful.” Douglas County’s running game jelled and spoiled Legend’s first-ever trip to the state playoffs. Trey Smith rushed for 216 yards and four touchdowns, JP Rubino gained 128 yards and a TD and quarterback Rope Ruel added 111 yards rushing and two scores. “It felt good,” said Rubino. “Our linemen worked hard on being physical and we tried to beat them down and it worked out well. “We have to work hard and not take this being cocky. We have to focus on Fairview and just hit them hard. As long as we play as a team and work hard, I feel like we can come out and rush for another 500 yards.” Legend wound up the season with a 6-4 record. Remy is a junior but the Titans’ top two receivers, Elijah Cherrington and Cody Dengal, are seniors, along with running back Joshua Miskol. Cherrington caught 10 passes for 213 yards and two TDs against the Huskies while Dengal had five catches for 99 yards and a touchdown. “We had a good season,” said Legend coach Rob Doyle. “It was our first trip to the playoffs and first winning season. We were disappointed in the result of the game but very proud of what our kids accomplished this year.”

Jaguars advance to soccer semis Rock Canyon edges Heritage 1-0 in 5A quarterfinal clash By Tom Munds

tmunds@ourcoloradonews.com Rock Canyon came out on top 1-0 in the hard-fought battle that lasted the full 80 minutes from starting whistle to gameending buzzer at the state Class 5A quarterfinal game with Heritage Nov. 2 at Shea Stadium. “This was a battle and a heck of a game,” Jaguars coach Sean Henning said after the game. “Heritage is a very good soccer team. It was tough, but we just kept working and fortunately got the goal we needed to win the game.” Adam Buseck, Heritage coach, said his team played well. “The kids did everything I asked them to do,” he said. “Rock Canyon is a good team. When they got a sort of soft goal early, they made it stand up for the win.” The win advances the Jaguars to the semifinals against Denver East. The An-

gels come into the game with a 10-5-3 record. They advanced this far with wins over Highlands Ranch, Rangeview and Liberty. Rock Canyon advances to the state semifinals with a 15-0-2 record. The Jaguars have already bested playoff opponents Doherty, Arapahoe and Heritage. Both state semifinals will be played at Legacy Stadium, which is adjacent to Cherokee Trail High School at 25901 E. Arapahoe Road. The first game of the evening matches Boulder (15-3) against Pine Creek (15-1-2) at 4 p.m. at Legacy Stadium. Soccer purists should have enjoyed the Nov. 2 Rock Canyon-Heritage quarterfinal battle. The game was played at a racehorse tempo. The play moved from one end of the field to the other as, when a team took possession of the ball, they sought to establish control of the flow of the game to mount a successful scoring attack. “We came in working to maintain possession of the ball. That is our style of play. We made that work in the first half,” the Jaguar coach said after the game. “But Heritage stepped up the attack and the drive to challenge us in the second half. They

pressed the attack frequently but our back line and goalkeeping kept the ball out of the net. The defense has been solid all year, and I believe this is our ninth or tenth shutout this season.” Both teams created scoring opportunities. But, at both ends of the field, the defenders and goalie combined to keep shots out of the net. The only exception came about midway through the first half when Gabe Krzywdzinski drilled a line-drive shot at goal from about 35 yards out. “The long shot is sort of my specialty,” Krzywdzinski said after the game. “Today, we were pushing up field when I had the ball come to me across my body. I settled it on the ground and, when I looked up, I saw there were no defenders in front of me and the goalie was off line so I took the shot. I didn’t aim. I just shot a prayer at the goal.” Krzywdzinski’s shot was a line drive to the upper left corner of the goal and it sailed by the outreached hand of the leaping goalie and into the net. The junior midfielder said seeing the ball go into the net was the best feeling he has had in his life.

Awareness key to concussion prevention Steps taken to reduce risk to prep athletes By Nick Puckett

npuckett@ourcoloradonews. com Throughout the past decade, “concussion” has become an increasingly dreaded word in the world of sports. With the growing awareness of the consequences of untreated concussions, being diagnosed with one or more can cause a week on the sidelines, the end of a season or, in some cases, a career. A concussion — which the University of Rochester Medical Center describes as “a traumainduced alteration in mental status” — is caused by forceful impact to the brain, such as a blow to the head or any other injury that shakes the brain inside the skull. According to mayoclinic. com, repercussions of suffering multiple concussions or a very serious concussion can result in long-term problems with speaking, motor skills or learning. In high school sports, concussions are most commonly diagnosed among football players, with that sport being responsible for 53.1 percent of the concussions recorded in a report by the American Journal of Sports Medicine. Boys lacrosse and girls soccer follow, taking blame for 9.2 percent and 7.4 percent of concussions, respectively. The same study also found a 15.5 percent increase in concussions reported among student-athletes every year during the time span, 19972008. The study looked at more than 10 million athletes. In all, experts agree that the best way to quickly diagnose

and catch concussions is “being aware,” according to Valor Christian High School athletic trainer Allen Schroeder. Valor Christian’s football team, which is seeking its fifth straight state championship, is among the dozens of squads in Colorado that will take the field this week in the postseason with the threat of concussion ever present. In recent years, steps have been taken to stem the threat. In March 2011, Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper signed into law an act referred to as the Jake Snakenberg Youth Concussion Act. The law is named after Jake Snakenberg, a freshman football player at Aurora’s Grandview High School who died in 2004 after suffering an apparent concussion and then continuing to play football the following week. The guidelines include the requirement to complete an annual concussion recognition education course; the removal of an athlete suspected of a concussion from a game, competition or practice; and medical clearance from a health-care professional prior to returning to play in a game, competition or practice. But is a law enough? What about the equipment?

Putting a cap on it

At least one piece of football equipment that some believe shows promise in concussion prevention has been outlawed by the Colorado High School Activities Association. The Guardian Cap, a stretchable, soft-shell helmet cover that fits over the helmet, can prevent “the sub-concussive hits,” or “long-term, small increment injuries,” according to Justin Greeley, instrumentation engineer for the Oregon Ballistics

Illustration by Stephanie Ogren Laboratories in Salem, Ore. Greeley spearheaded the experiment to test the change in amount of impact of a helmet-to-helmet collision with and without the Guardian Cap. “We’re not here to determine if (the Guardian Caps) are safe or not,” said CHSAA assistant commissioner Harry Waterman, “We rely on the bodies that do the research.” CHSAA adopts rules on equipment standards based on research from the National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment in Overland Park, Kan.

Athletic equipment must pass a standard test known as the NOCSAE standard in order to be legalized for game play. The Guardian Cap failed to pass the NOCSAE Standard for Add-On Helmet Products certification Columbine High School once used Guardian Caps for practice exclusively, but stopped using them due to “liability issues through our district,” football coach Andrew Lowry said. “I sure wish we could (use them) because I truly believe in them,” he said. The NOCSAE Standard for Add-On Helmet Products states

that no add-on helmet products are permitted for game use without clearance for every single helmet make, model and size. According to the standard, “it is the maker of the product that declares that the product when modified by anyone be declared no longer certified,” said NOCSAE Technical Director David Halstead. “The reason is, it suddenly becomes unclear if the product, as modified, works as intended. It is unclear who stands behind it, both for product warranty, and in the event of injury litigation.” Within the report by the Oregon Ballistics Laboratories and another report on a similar experiment by Wayne State University in Detroit, it was concluded, in all, that the Guardian Cap reduces the amount of impact from a head-on collision with a regular helmet without any accessories by 33 percent. But the NOCSAE standard still does not clear the Guardian Cap. “They can’t test (the Guardian Cap) with every helmet without certain financial issues,” said Greeley. “None of the (helmet companies) want to take on the liability.” Similar accessories throughout different sports, however, are allowed and used in games. Headguards have been introduced to soccer recently because of the rising number of concussions in the sport, especially from girls soccer. The Full90 Premier protective headgear is one headguard used throughout both boys and girls soccer, but predominantly in the girls sport. The headgear is a padded piece of equipment that covers the forehead and temple areas of the head, locations responsible Concussion continues on Page 26

Preventing a second one

Perhaps the most daunting part of a concussion is the possibility of second impact syndrome, which is believed to be behind Snakenberg’s death. Second impact syndrome, or SIS, occurs when a person with a concussion is forcefully struck on the head, causing severe swelling in the brain that can result in paralysis or even death. The recent laws put into place mainly

for the most concussions in soccer. Headguards have similar problems with the Guardian Cap. There may never be any hard evidence that these padded headbands will prevent concussions. The big difference is that soccer headguards are approved for game use by the NOCSAE standard and by the National Federation of State High School Associations. The main reason for the headguards’ clearance is that there is no article of equipment that is being tampered with or added to. The common theme with both of these pieces of equipment, though, is that there is no guarantee of preventing a concussion. Precautionary measures must still be taken to detect and diagnose concussions. “Most concussion prevention comes in the form of rule changes within each sport,” said Bre Perdue, head athletic trainer for the boys division for Regis Jesuit High School in Aurora. “For instance, in football there is now a penalty for helmet-to-helmet hits. Players are also required to come out of the game for a down if their helmet comes off, and in lacrosse, the penalty was doubled for a check to the head.”

aid in the prevention of SIS. To help diagnose concussions to prevent SIS, various forms of technology are being introduced to athletes on and off the field. Different forms of technology are being used for athletes in high school sports. Before every season, some schools require each athlete in each sport to take something called an impact test, a test that records a baseline of an athlete’s brain’s performance. If suspected of a concussion, the athlete retakes the same test to compare to their baseline. A certain score would translate to evidence of the brain not working properly, possibly due to a concussion. Nearly every school in Colorado uses this procedure, or a test similar to it, because of the concussion education laws. Immediate tests such as the Stat-2 test, a series of questions testing short-term memory, are used on-site at the competition or practice to quickly see if a player has a concussion. Medical clearance is required for an athlete to return to action. Athletes diagnosed with a concussion are recommended to complete a “graduated return to play,” according to Perdue. “Most graduated return to plays follow the Zurich Consensus Statement on Concussion in Sport,” said Perdue. The Zurich Consensus Statement on Concussion in Sport is an annual statement on certain medical issues from Zurich, Switzerland. The specified statement recommends the athlete to be symptom-free before returning and then going through a series of steps upon return. As Valor Christian’s Schroeder said, awareness is crucial. Diagnosing concussions, he said, is about “just making sure the coach or the parent has the training to (know when) to remove an athlete … it comes down to recognition.”

adindex Connor McPherson is a four-time state champion and has played the last two years at No. 2 singles for Cherry Creek. Photo by Jim Benton py he came back and played with us. He helped the team out a lot. “He and I definitely pushed each other, especially in practice. We were always working to make each other better. We definitely have that competitive edge with each other but we just pushed each other and made each other better.” McPherson started playing tennis with his dad when he was 10 years ago and then a few years later had to tab tennis rather than baseball as the sport he wanted to pursue. “I feel like I have improved immensely since my freshman year,” said McPherson. “The best way to improve is hitting with people that are better than you. “That’s what I got a chance to do through my four years, and playing

doubles was great for my game. You get all aspects of the game through doubles. Even though I wouldn’t be able to be at the top position, being able to play with the best of the best is pretty cool.”

jbenton@ourcoloradonews.com There are trite notions that nothing or nobody is perfect. Connor McPherson admits he isn’t perfect but it’s pretty hard to argue that his recently completed high school career wasn’t near-perfect. McPherson won his second consecutive state No. 2 singles championship Oct. 12 at Gates Tennis Center after capturing the No. 3 doubles titles as a freshman and sophomore. The Cherry Creek High School senior was selected as the Colorado Community Media South Metro Tennis Player of the Year. Cherry Creek set a team scoring record in winning the state championship for the 38th time in 41 years, and McPherson added a fourth state title to his resume. “There was definitely a lot more pressure this year because everybody was talking about it (winning a fourth title),” he said. “It was definitely in the back of my mind, but I tried to keep it in the back of my mind, focus on what I had to do and try not to make it too big of a deal. “It was the perfect season. I couldn’t have seen it going any better. Sweeping state hasn’t happened since 1998. To be able to go out senior year like that was just incredible.” McPherson, however, wasn’t flawless. He finished the season 20-1, with his one loss coming against eventual Class 4A No. 2 singles champion Willie Gold of Kent Denver. “Definitely that helped me,” said McPherson. “I lost at least a match every year and it kind of wakes you up, makes you realize you have to keep working hard and it’s not going to be easy. It pushed me to work that much harder.” McPherson was unable to play No. 1 singles this fall when Zach Fryer returned to Creek for his senior season after playing USTA events. Fryer was unbeaten, and was the state’s No. 2 singles champion as a Creek sophomore and captured the state No. 1 singles title last month. “Of course I wanted to be No. 1,” confessed McPherson. “I tried hard for it.
