6TH CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT

Coffman, Carroll grapple for seat

Challenger tries to use Trump against incumbent, who says he won’t vote for the GOP presidential nominee By Kyle Harding kharding@coloradocommunitymedia.com While Republican U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman has sought to distance his race for reelection in Congressional District 6 from

the GOP presidential race, challenger Morgan Carroll has largely campaigned on tying the incumbent Aurora Republican to his party’s controversial nominee. Coffman, 61, seeking Carroll his fifth term, wants to focus on keeping the House of Representatives in Republican hands rather than discussing Donald Trump. “I think the impact of this race is not

who is in the White House,” he said. “The race I’m focused on is my own.” The race with Carroll, 44, also from Aurora and a two-term state senator first elected to District 29 in 2008, is being described as Coffman a toss-up by the University of Virginia’s Center for Politics, political prediction website 270towin. com and The Cook Political Report. Money has poured into both campaigns, with

Coffman outraising Carroll $2.99 million to $2.17 million, according to filings with the Federal Election Commission. Coffman won his re-election in 2014 by nine points. But Carroll believes he is more vulnerable this year, pointing to Trump’s top-of-the-ticket unpopularity among establishment Republicans, an ever-diversifying district and statewide trends that show Democrats have the edge in voter registration.

Annual pumpkin patch raises money for homeless and hungry By Alex DeWind adewind@coloradocommunity Green and yellow gourds, ginormous and peewee-sized pumpkins, red wagons and haystacks — it’s the annual Pumpkin Patch of Centennial. “Once you buy one, you look around and think, ‘Oh wait, that one is better,’ ” said Marta Ives, who oversees the patch on Fridays. The patch not only makes for a fun fall activity, it is also a fundraising event for Good Shepherd Episcopal Church. Proceeds go towards several organizations that serve the hungry and homeless Pumpkin continues on Page 6

After 4 1/2 years, John Danielson has announced his resignation as Centennial’s city manager. “I’ve been working in local government for 30 years and am ready for a break. The city will be embarking on some big, long-term projects soon and continuity of leadership would be nice,” said Danielson, whose last day Danielson at the city was Oct. 14. “My wife and I are looking forward to seeing both of our children get married in the coming months and are also excited to continue traveling and completing our bucket list.” Danielson led the city through several key projects, including the reconstruction of Arapahoe Road between Waco and Himalaya, the complete renovation of the city’s Civic Center building, the acquisition of a public works facility, the expansion of the city’s award-winning Centennial Center Park, and a grant for Centennial’s “I-Team,” one of 12 Bloomberg Philanthropies innovation teams across the country. “During John’s tenure, Centennial grew up as a city,” Mayor Cathy Noon said in a media release. “We are known Manager continues on Page 4

Cherry Creek wins another state crown Bruins capture sixth straight state boys tennis team title

By Tom Munds tmunds@colorado communitymedia.com For the sixth consecutive year and the 42nd time in 45 years, Cherry Creek claimed the state boys team title.

Going into the final day of the tournament on Oct. 15, the title race was tight with four teams — the Bruins, Denver East, Regis and Fairview — in contention for the championship. But the Bruins pulled ahead of the field to stay with wins at No. 1 singles and the third-place finish at No. 1 doubles with a win over the Denver East team.

Cherry Creek staked its claim to the gold trophy early as Ethan Hillis defeated Dawid Kijak of Overland in straight sets, 6-0, 6-1, in a match that took about 45 minutes. Hillis said he was looking forward to the state championship match because he finished second at state as a sophoTennis continues on Page 6

Highlands Ranch woman heeds genetic clues to beat cancer By Tom Skelley tskelley@coloradocommunitymedia.com Rae Atherton isn’t a procrastinator. After learning both of her older sisters had been diagnosed with cancer, Atherton got tested in 2009 for BRCA 1 and 2, genetic mutations that show an increased likelihood of developing cancer. She scheduled annual mammograms and MRIs, with an appointment for one test or the other every six months. “I’m a proactive person, not reactive person,” the Highlands Ranch Realtor said. She had taken the initiative, and a string of negative test results reassured her. But a phone call in August 2015 informed Atherton a tumor had been found in her breast, leaving her almost at a loss for words. “I said it out loud — ‘I’m not supposed to be in this club,’” Atherton said. “I was in shock — there’s no doubt about it. But I don’t let things sit, I was on it.” A month after that call, Atherton had surgery to remove the initial tumor, along with two smaller ones discovered during the procedure. In October 2015, she began radiation treatment. She underwent another BRCA test, again relieved to find she had no trace of the gene. The 2015 panel, known as the MyRISK panel, was more advanced than the screening just six years earlier, checking for 25 genetic mutations that could lead to a higher risk of a variety of cancers. “The test was incredibly improved,” she said. “The 2009 test was like a piece of the pie, but with the 2015 test I got the whole pie. The information is so much better and complete.” Dr. Christine Rogness, medical director at Parker Adventist’s Cancer Center, said most health care systems, including all Adventist hospitals in the region, have recognized the importance of genetic screening and now offer the service. Women with a family history of cancer should consider getting the BRCA test, Rogness said, as well as women who don’t know their family’s complete medical

Dr. Christine Rogness, left, and Rae Atherton reunite in front of the “Hope Tree” sculpture at Parker Adventist Hospital on Oct. 6. Patients beginning treatment write a prayer or wish on a piece of paper and stuff them into a knothole on the sculpture. Photo by Tom Skelley history. “There are families where people didn’t really talk about it… There are also women who were adopted, or people whose parents died in a car crash when they were three,” Rogness said. “These are real cases that are out there.” “A good first step” for women concerned about their chance of developing breast cancer is a discussion with their doctor, Rogness said. Primary care physicians typically recommend a genetic counselor if they feel

their patient is at risk. Even if a patient has no sign of cancer, the BRCA gene can be passed to a patient’s children. Awareness of the gene improves the chance that cancer will be detected and treated early in such a case. A trusted doctor is also important to help women through the “breast cancer journey,” Rogness’ term for the process of diagnosis, treatment and recovery. “There’s really no other way to describe it,” Rogness said. “It’s really important for women to un-

derstand that most women survive breast cancer,” Rogness said, adding that more than 80 percent of women diagnosed with breast cancer beat the disease. As a woman who has taken that journey, Atherton said she will always be grateful she took action to detect her cancer early. She’ll also remember what a nurse told her as she left her last radiation treatment. “You are no longer a cancer patient,” Atherton said. “You’re a cancer survivor.”

Congress Continued from Page 1

“Nobody thinks Congress is doing a good job,” said Carroll, who was state Senate president in 2013 and also represented state House District 36 from 2004-08. The 6th Congressional District encompasses Aurora, Centennial, Highlands Ranch, Littleton and portions of Adams County, among other areas. The Trump factor Coffman never endorsed Trump and released a TV ad in August vowing to stand up to him in which he said, “I don’t care for him much.” But Carroll said Coffman never explicitly disavowed him. Then came Oct. 7, when audio was leaked of Trump from 11 years ago, bragging to then-“Access Hollywood” host Billy Bush about groping women. Coffman became one of the first Republicans to call on Trump to drop out of the race, saying he should step down for the good of the country and give Republicans a chance at winning the presidency. In an Oct. 14 interview with Colorado Community Media, Coffman also said he will not vote for Trump. He would not say who he will vote for, only that he won’t vote for Clinton, either. He said he hopes Trump will focus on policy for

for innovation and customer service, and many large projects became a reality. We thank him for the professional development of our team and wish him well in his future endeavors.” During his time as city manager, Centennial received a variety of rec-

October 21, 2016 the rest of the campaign. But for all of Coffman’s distancing himself from Trump, Carroll’s campaign has continually linked the two Republicans. Carroll has also criticized Coffman for not abandoning Trump over earlier controversies. Carroll, however, also cites low congressional approval ratings as an opportunity for her. A Gallup Poll in September found only 20 percent of respondents approved of Congress’ performance. On the issues Both Carroll and Coffman tout a willingness to work across the aisle, but each accuses the other of partisanship. Carroll notes she has worked under Democratic and Republican governors and said she is hopeful that she could find bipartisan consensus on criminal justice reform in the House, drawing on experience while interning with a drug court program during law school. “At one point not that long ago, half the felonies in this state were drug possession,” she said. Carroll also hopes to find agreement on mental health and immigration reform. Coffman points out he stands against fellow Republicans on some immigration issues and also in his desire to rein in Pentagon spending. Carroll said she joined with legislators on both sides of the aisle earlier this year to rid the state of red light cameras on civil liberties grounds, but the bill was vetoed by Gov. John Hicken-

looper, a Democrat. She also wants to tackle student loan debt, which Carroll calls “the single biggest financial crisis we’ve got.” “It’s surpassed credit card debt, it’s actually surpassed the housing crisis during the recession,” she said. “And the frustrating thing is, this isn’t something Congress can’t do anything about. Congress decides what the interest rates are — whether, if and how people are allowed to refinance their loans.” Coffman said he wants to make home ownership easier through taxadvantaged savings plans and construction law defect reform to encourage building lower-cost townhomes and condos. “Half of the renters (in the district) are paying a third or more of their income in rent,” he said, citing a Harvard University study. He also said he wants to save Buckley Air Force Base, the district’s biggest employer, from closure. Both candidates say they want to reform the Department of Veterans Affairs, and with the debacle surrounding the Aurora VA Medical Center construction, it weighs heavily in the district. On military and veterans issues, Coffman leans on his background as a retired Marine Corps officer and veteran of the Gulf War and the Iraq War and his work on Armed Services and Veterans’ Affairs committees in the House. Since the district was redrawn following the 2010 census to include all of Aurora, dropping several south metro

ognitions, such as remaining one of the safest cities in Colorado, ranking as a best place to live by Money Magazine and USA Today, and being named fourth most successful city in the nation by Zippia Inc., a website that specializes in career options. Danielson had an annual base salary of $195,000 at the time of his resignation. Deputy City Manager Elisha Thomas will serve as acting city manager. The city plans to conduct a national search.

suburbs, Coffman has worked to improve his outreach to its high minority and immigrant population — learning Spanish, appearing at cultural events and pushing for immigration reforms. The district now is approximately onefifth Hispanic and has large Asian and African immigrant populations as well. Opponents have criticized his actions as pandering, noting that Coffman co-sponsored legislation to make English an official national language in 2012. Following a narrow 2012 win, after which he said he didn’t do enough outreach in his newly diverse territory, Coffman won a landslide victory in 2014 over challenger Andrew Romanoff. “There’s no question that this is a swing district and this is one a Democrat can win,” Carroll said. “(Barack) Obama won this district twice, Hickenlooper won this district twice, Michael Bennet won this district, I’ve been elected four times from within this district.” Coffman admits he has run up against a perception by some of his immigrant constituents that Republicans hate immigrants, even legal ones. He also knows that in the year of Trump, who kicked off his presidential run with a speech characterizing Mexican immigrants as rapists and drug dealers, down-ballot Republicans could be collateral damage. “I’m lucky that I’m well-known in the district,” he said. “I think that if I were running for the first time, it wouldn’t go well.”

more and didn’t play high school tennis as a junior. “I felt very good coming into today’s match,” he said after his win. “I was very happy to get this win and complete an undefeated season.” The Bruin senior went out of state to play tennis in preparation for the match. “I went and played in a division 4 amateur youth tennis tournament and I feel that helped get me ready for today,” he said. “I feel my strength on the court is my consistent play — and the fact I don’t have any weak areas in my game.” Kijak had a lot of momentum coming into the championship but Hillis said he was ready to play his game. “Winning the state title is a great feeling,” Hillis said. “On a scale of one to 10 it is an 8 1/2 or a nine.” Jack Alexander of Heritage was the only other player from an area team to advance to the final day’s action as he played for third place at No. 2 singles against Ethan Schacht of Fairview. Alexander lost the first set 7-5, but regained his composure and won the next two sets, 6-1, 6-1. “Today was a tough one,” he said after the match. “After that first-set loss, I got the nervousness under control, I got my strokes going and I was more aggressive.” He said having his former coach, friends and families cheering for him helped give

Finishing third is one of the better days of my entire life.” Seven Bruins singles players or doubles teams competed for first or third place on the final day, attesting to the team’s depth and strength. Cherry Creek won six of the seven final day’s matches. Bruins champions were Ethan Hillis, no. 1 singles, Jack Hill, No. 2 singles, Stone Heyman and Nick Eidler, No. 3 doubles, and Zach Smith and Nick Svichara, No. 4 doubles. Cherry Creek’s third-place finishers included Jacob Bendalin and Ben Murray, No. 1 doubles, and Sam Angell and Drew Hill, No. 2 doubles.

This fall, rethink nature’s fertilizer Did you know that fall leaves and grass clippings contain phosphorus and nitrogen– the two common nutrients found in fertilizers? By properly reapplying these wastes to your lawn and garden, your yard can benefit from nature’s fertilizer while protecting local streams and ponds. This fall, try composting your leaves to reuse in next year’s garden or use a mulching mower to chop up grass and leaves on the lawn. Local stormwater agencies are teaming together to bring you this message. We take this so seriously that we posted this ad rather than send you more garbage in the mail.

Learning to say ‘no’ so we can say ‘yes’ A publication of

You have seen the advertisements on television, or heard them on the radio, and have probably seen them propagated on social media. “Vote Yes on Amendment (X),” or “Vote No on Amendment (Y).” Frankly there are more promotions asking us to vote “Yes” or “No” on an amendment than there is any substance to the amendment or the promotion. And I am sure many of you, like me, sit and wonder about what “Yes” and “No” really means in this year’s election. When I saw that latest ads asking for support or not to support Amendment 103 and 104 I kind of gave up on trying to remember how many amendments I can possibly keep track of, let alone make an intelligent vote for. So let’s put the amendments and the election behind us if we can for just a moment, or a day, or a month or a year or so. Sorry, I had another “Yikes” moment. But if we can put it all behind us and think about what we say “Yes” to and what we say “No” to for just a minute, we can probably save ourselves some time and certainly some angst. We can even become more productive and more at peace with all that we are doing and all that we are thinking about. Once again, I am not the first person to

share this advice nor will I be the last. As a matter of fact, I was recently reminded of this incredible advice by a very close friend of mine during a recent discussion. The advice is this, “Learn to say `No’ more often, so that you can say `Yes’ to the most Michael Norton important things and people in your WINNING life.” Seems so simple WORDS right? Yet so many of us want to be liked or seek approval that we will say “Yes” to everything and never leave ourselves enough time for anything. Again, not the first person to tell you this, and probably will never be the last. But repetition is the mother or father of either invention or success, and both are awesome. So hopefully you will hear it again and again and again from someone or everyone. Just think about this with me for a minute, what have you been saying “Yes” to that has caused you stress, drama, or has

forced you into being less productive than you could be? For me, it’s too many things, too many ideas, too many new business opportunities, and just too many “asks.” Saying “No” is hard for many of us. But we have to learn to say “No” so that we can say “Yes” to what is most important in our lives and the lives of those family and friends closest to us. This is not selfish, it is just reality. Saying “No,” by the way, is like batting practice. The more attempts or swings that you get, the more comfortable you will become at saying “No.” Just like a baseball player becomes more comfortable at the plate. They know which pitch to say “No” to and which pitch they can take a swing at. Saying “No” is hard. Saying “Yes” is easy. “Yes” is what people want to hear. So how about you? If you are struggling with learning what to say “Yes” to or what to say “No” to, I would love to hear all about it at gotonorton@gmail.com. And when we can learn to say “No” to the unimportant and say “Yes” to the important, it really will be a better than good week.

It may not be the right choice, but it’s the only one left

Craig Marshall Smith

QUIET DESPERATION

I don’t feel good about this, but I don’t think I have a choice — in more ways than one. I have decided not to vote. Oh, I am going to vote. Just not for a president. I am fatigued, disgusted and disillusioned. I refuse to vote for the lesser of two anvils. And I’m tired of Hannity and Coo-

per and Blitzer and Kelly. It’s my ultimate responsibility, isn’t it? I am not doing my duty. Theodore Hesburgh said, “Voting is a civic sacrament.” I’m glad all over that this isn’t my first voting opportunity. I’d have a political hangover for years, and might not want to vote again. I have seen some genuine fools come and go, and some of them were elected. Nothing like this, though. I know what it means. I cannot complain

about the outcome. Like the song (“Crazy”) goes, “It wasn’t because I didn’t know enough, I just knew too much.” Standing in front of their sycophants, who look like they are standing behind someone decent and profound, and listening to them yap about Miss Universe, I decided that I was done. All beauty pageants are imbecilic to begin with. For one of them to be a moment this deep into a presidential campaign stinks from here to Venezuela. I am no one’s role model except my own. I learned about right and wrong from the right man. My father. What would he say? Pop was a Republican. We stopped talking about politics. It was the only thing we couldn’t agree upon. But I believe he would understand why I had chosen not to vote. Maybe not right away, but eventually. I cannot vote for anyone who is not as decent as my father. How’s that? There must be someone out there who will talk without stabbing the air with a forefinger to make a too-loud point about something they promise to do, first thing, as soon as they are elected, and then rub their hands together like Oil Can Harry after tying

someone to the railroad tracks. It’s been vulgar and coarse for two years now. I would sooner vote for my mail carrier, or Vin Scully. Eight years ago, I stood in line for three hours to vote. It means a lot to me. If you think I am taking the easy way out this time, I’m not. I sweated this out. “Maybe one of them will become presidential.” I have been hearing that. That’s crazy too. It’s like saying a GP will become a brain surgeon, if you just hand him a brain. One way or another, we’ll all get by. There are plenty of other things to think about. Washington is very far away when your best friend is fighting a heroin addiction, or you’re out of work, or your marriage is disintegrating. I don’t recommend what I am about not to do. Like I said, I am not a model for anyone, or a final arbiter of anything. I can’t look at either one of them without something else. It comes with some resignation in it, about the realities of existence, and perhaps it comes with aging. It’s sadness. Craig Marshall Smith is an artist, educator and Highlands Ranch resident.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Jack Tate an engaged legislator Our Centennial community has been very fortunate to have been represented by Jack Tate initially in the State House and currently in the State Senate. Jack has hardly had what anyone would consider a “political career.” Having been an engineer, small business owner and a job creator many years, he is well suited to represent the citizens of SD 27. He understands the burdens and the unintended consequences that state legislation can have on citizens, businesses and local governments. Jack has been the most engaged representative our community has seen. He meets with citizens, asks questions and, most importantly, listens. As a parent of three Cherry Creek School District kids, he understands the challenges that exist in our current education environment, an environment created by the loss of local governance over the decisions on how best to educate our children. Jack is well versed in the impacts of legislative matters on our local economy and our community. The City of Centennial makes up the majority of SD 27. Sen. Tate has spent considerable time with local officials under-

Business Manager AUDREY BROOKS

standing their concerns and working with them to seek resolutions for the benefit of our community. He is more than just a representative that sits downtown, he is present in our community and strives to connect with all of the citizens of SD27. Finally, his record of accomplishment for the benefit of all Coloradans speaks for itself. For example, he was named Legislator of the Year by the University of Colorado among other recognitions. Stephanie Piko, Centennial City Council Ken Lucas, Centennial City Council Mark Gotto, Centennial City Council Doris Truhlar, Centennial City Council Carrie Penaloza, Centennial City Council Kathy Turley, Centennial City Council Vote McClellan for state board I’m voting for Rebecca McClellan for Congressional District 6 State School Board of Education. Isn’t it about time that a parent, with a child in school right now, should represent us on the State Board of Education? Rebecca is invested in making sure the State Board works for all students, parents

and educators. She understands concerns that parents have regarding testing, accountability of funds and public vs. charter vs. private schools. Rebecca knows that we need to work together to make Colorado’s interpretation of the Every Student Succeeds Act reflect the priorities of the residents of Colorado. I have known Rebecca for over 12 years through our neighborhood schools, where her volunteering includes classroom work, fundraising and supporting the arts and music. She was elected to the Centennial City Council from 2006 to 2014, during which time she served as Mayor Pro Tem and was the City Council Liaison to the local public schools, working with legislators to develop and pass measures to improve school funding. Rebecca has also served on the executive board of her school district’s Legislative Network and was a PTCO executive officer for her son’s middle school last year. Rebecca McClellan gets my vote for Colorado State Board of Education. Nancy J. Lindsey Centennial Letters continues on Page 11

Sustainable growth looks like trend The presidential election is in a few weeks and many investors are uneasy. There are just a few weeks left of campaign ads and next month there will be a new president announced. The stock market, however, seems Patricia Kummer more concerned FINANCIAL about corporate STRATEGIES earnings and interest rates. At least as of this writing. Historical research on stock market performance during election years turned out to be a big yawn. It may be best summed up by an international bank stating: “Absent recessions, there isn’t much of an election cycle.” During previous election years, the financial markets move in the direction the economic news of the day dictates, not who is in office. There have been slight downturns when a sitting president cannot run, which is the case in 2016. There are indications that financial markets prefer there to be two parties between the White House and Congress, not a single party in control. Markets like economic growth and dislike uncertainty. Once the

new president is determined and some of the uncertainty falls away, then we are back to what the economy dictates as potential for economic growth. Since 1928, the Standard & Poor’s 500 — a widely watched benchmark of U.S. large-cap companies — has dropped in presidential election years that don’t include an incumbent seeking re-election, notes Stephen Suttmeier, research analyst at BofA Merrill Lynch Global Research. By contrast, in years when the sitting president is up for re-election, the S&P 500 has averaged returns of 12.6 percent. The average for all years from 1928 through 2014 is 7.5 percent. Most analysts agree, we are not headed into recession and the general positive trend of the markets could very well continue barring extreme cases such as terrorism, or total misses of hitting economic growth targets for China. Therefore, let’s review our current and potential economic situation, as that is where the focus will be within a few weeks after the election. The positives are: Economic growth in the 2-3 percent GDP range. The most substantial since the Great Recession of 2008-9. Unemployment has fallen from 10 percent to 5 percent and appears sustainable at these levels. Housing values have risen beyond the precredit crisis and in some cities have begun leveling off. Wages will likely increase gradually as growth pushes businesses

Letters Continued from Page 10

Vote no on Amendment 71 This amendment, while well-intentioned, is primarily a stealth attack on TABOR. If enacted, Amendment 71 would allow a repeal of TABOR (and any other existing initiated amendments such as term limits) by only 51 percent of voters, whereas any new con-

to expand and fewer qualified workers are available. Inflation has been gradually ticking up. This is listed as a positive, in that if the goal is to get back to “normal” monetary policy, this could indicate potential growth going forward. Too much inflation, of course, is bad when it dampers economic growth. However, the current situation of very nominal increases of under one-half of 1 percent is perceived as healthy. Corporate earnings are improving, which in turn will help bring valuations in line. The negatives are: The age of the bull market, although the market increases since the end of Quantitative Easing has been reasonably slower. World market conditions, namely high debt and slow growth and aging demographics. Commodities continue to struggle under slower growth and large supplies despite some recent increases in oil prices. The effects of long-term low interest rate environment on fixed income portfolio holdings. Market volatility based on instant news worldwide. These kneejerk reactions create background noise that may cause investors to abandon their long-term strategy. In summary, it is important for investors to stay focused on their strategy. It could be just as dangerous to miss an opportunity as it is to miss a market correction. It is fully expected that the markets

stitutional change would require 55 percent approval. Clearly a double standard. Amendment 71’s requirement to have 2 percent of registered voters in each Senate District is a bar so high that only extremely wealthy individuals could jump over it. Yes, our current process for citizen-initiated amendments could use some modification, but 71 goes too far and is basically a Trojan horse for big government spenders who don’t like the reasonable spending limits required by TABOR.

could pull back 10-15 percent just due to the run-up we have had since 2009. Again, this would likely be based on an interest rate increase, earnings forecast or global issues. Of course an unexpected natural disaster, terrorist attacks or other non-financial issues could easily push the markets over until everything is sorted out. Rarely in history does a presidential election drive market returns, especially if there is perceived economic growth potential. Investors may look to benefit from the explosion of new cloud technology, health-care changes and anything related to the $15 trillion industry called the baby boomers. The level of uncertainty of either candidate’s agenda will get the media riled up and could certainly cause some additional volatility in the near term. However, in the larger scheme of things, economic prosperity is what investors want, and the economy looks to be on a trend toward sustainable and reasonable growth.

Supernatural sleuths pursue ghosts Paranormal investigators explore things that go bump in the night By Tom Skelley tskelley@coloradocommunitymedia.com

E

ven when she was by herself, Luana Kurz always knew she really wasn’t. “I never felt alone at nighttime,” she said. As a child Kurz didn’t want to believe in ghosts, despite mounting evidence that her family shared their home with other, invisible tenants. Candles blew out on their own. Cabinet doors, closed when the family went to bed, were open in the morning. Lying in bed one night when she was 17, Kurz received a visit from her grandfather. “I was lying on my side, I couldn’t move, and I felt cold,” Kurz said. “I felt a hand patting me, and I looked down and saw his hand, and I just felt his peace.” She remained in bed, motionless, until her father knocked on her door. “About an hour later, the phone rang and my father came to my room,” Kurz said. “He said ‘I just want to tell you that your

grandpa died about an hour ago.’ ” Englewood resident Michelle Mayer always had a feeling her childhood home in Rochester, New York, was haunted, but her parents wouldn’t talk about her suspicions. When she moved to her own apartment in 1987, she didn’t suspect there were ghosts in the building. She knew. Lights turned themselves on and off. The phone rang spontaneously. She watched plates float around her kitchen. “I’d be cooking and the dish I was about to put the food on would move from one side of the sink to the other,” Mayer, 45, said. At 10 years old in Michigan, LeeAnna Jonas and two friends played with a Ouija board, hoping for a spooky thrill. They ended up screaming and running from the basement. “We all looked up and saw an apparition of a woman sitting in a rocking chair, with a baby in one arm and a knife in her other hand,” the 54-year-old Littleton resident said. “I always knew it was there,” Jonas said. “I just didn’t know how to find out for sure.” Now she knows.

Jonas, Mayer and Kurz all spend their nights probing the noises, apparitions and other unexplained phenomena that keep others up at night. They offer their services for free, to maintain objectivity and propriety. “It’s kind of unethical to have a scared homeowner and charge them for your help,” Kurz said. “We’re out there to learn, we’re out there to help,” Jonas added. “The living and the dead.” ‘They reach out to you’ Kurz, 40, leads Colorado Shadow Investigations, a team of 10 to 12 people who feel connected to the afterlife and look for traces of it in the metro area. The team has performed approximately 200 investigations since its 2010 inception, relying on a combination of intuition and technology. The goal, Kurz said, is research rather than finding hard proof. “When I started out I just wanted to find that one piece of evidence, to prove it to the scientific community,” Kurz said, but the more she looked for evidence, the more elusive it became. “You can’t repeat results like you do with scientific research,” she said. “You can’t make an apparition walk the same way down a hallway.”

As she got more seasoned, Kurz relied less on her tools than her senses. After more than 200 cases, she said her abilities have sharpened to the point that she can see, smell and hear ghosts, as well as sense their moods. She said the spirits she meets are almost always playful and positive. “Eventually I learned to open up,” she said. “When they know you can communicate, they reach out to you.” “Reaching out” has never been a problem for Jonas, who says she and her partners at Spirit Realm Investigative Project “always find something” on the 50-plus investigations they’ve conducted. A bigger problem, she said, is getting a ghost to back off. On her first investigation with partner Lolli Hughes, the duo explored a historic warehouse in Central City. The building’s original owner was reputed to have traveled to Haiti to dabble in voodoo in the early 1900s. Jonas said he brought something back with him, something that attacked Hughes. “She said it felt like something was squeezing her spine,” Jonas said. “We had to get her out of the building as soon as possible.” Like Kurz, Mayer said she’s performed more than 200 investigations, but hasn’t had any violent interactions with spirits. “I haven’t had any that were what I’d call scary. Creepy, I’d say maybe 1 percent. Grumpy, which I define as having an attitude but harmless, I’d

say about 20 percent,” she said. “The only time I’ve ever screamed was in Cañon City.” Mayer and her team, Full Moon Explorations, were touring the former women’s prison, notorious for the restless spirits of former inmates. Wrapping things up for the night, she picked up her laptop. “There was a cockroach about four inches long under it,” she said. Opening minds, not changing them Mayer welcomes skeptics to accompany her group on investigations. She lets them use audio recorders and cameras she provides so they know the information hasn’t been manipulated. Still, she says, not everyone can be convinced that spirits walk among them. “I won’t say we’ve turned a lot of skeptics into believers,” Mayer said, “but maybe we’ve opened their minds up.” The peaceful connection Kurz feels to the afterlife is reason enough to continue her work. Whatever others think of it, she said, isn’t her concern. “For me, this has opened up another world,” Kurz said. “I don’t worry about other people’s opinions.” All three women added that while they are happy to share their findings, convincing skeptics isn’t part of the job. They leave that to others. “They won’t believe it,” Jonas said, “until it happens to them.”

Breast cancer affects us all, and early detection can save lives. There is no cure for breast cancer, but mammograms can save lives by finding breast cancer as early as possible. Every woman, beginning at age 40, should schedule a mammogram and a physical every year. Women should also perform a thorough breast self-exam once a month. Help spread awareness in your community by educating your neighbors and friends on the signs and symptoms of breast cancer, and encourage the women you know to schedule a mammogram today.

Voters to decide on minimum wage increase Single-payer health care, aid in dying and primary elections are among ballot issues By Kyle Harding kharding@coloradocommunitymedia.com Small business owner Janelle Sullivan believes Colorado’s minimum wage should be raised but says a proposed increase on this year’s ballot goes too far. “It’s too much, too fast,” said Sullivan, who has owned Hot Pots Studio on Main Street in Littleton since 2003. But Patty Kupfer, campaign manager at Colorado Families for a Fair Wage, said her group worked with small businesses before settling on the phased-in $12-per-hour goal, believing it will have minimal impact on employment levels and prices of goods and services. “There were tough conversations around that,” she said, acknowledging that many activ-

ists wanted to push for a $15 wage floor. Amendment 70, one of nine statewide ballot questions, would incrementally raise the minimum wage to $12 per hour by January 2020, with continuing increases to adjust for cost of living. It would initially raise it from the current $8.31 per hour to $9.30 on Jan. 1, with 90-cent increases on Jan. 1 of 2018, 2019 and 2020. The wage would continue to be adjusted annually based on the consumer price index for the state. The minimum wage for tipped workers is $3.02 below the minimum wage. That would stay the same, meaning the minimum wage for tipped workers would rise to $8.98 in 2020. The current minimum wage of $8.31 amounts to about $17,000 per year for full-time workers. It has risen from $6.85 since 2006 to account for increases in the Consumer Price Index. The wage hike has drawn opposition from chamber of commerce groups and restaurant Ballot continues on Page 18

METRO AREA TO VOTE ON RENEWING SCFD Voters in the seven-county Denver metro area are faced with the choice of whether to renew the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District, which levies a 0.1 percent sales tax across the area to support cultural facilities.

The area includes Denver, Arapahoe, Douglas, Jefferson, Adams, Broomfield and Boulder counties. Government agencies and nonprofit organizations within

the district whose primary purpose is “to provide for the enlightenment and entertainment of the public through the production, presentation, exhibition, advancement or preservation of art, music, theatre, dance, zoology, botany, cultural history or natural history” can apply for funding from the district. More than 300 organizations throughout the area receive funding from the district. Recipients include:

and hotel organizations, as well as some small businesses. Sullivan employs three to five part-time workers at any given time who are paid between $10 and $13 per hour. Although some of her employees make above what the proposed minimum wage would be, there would be a secondary effect, she believes, leading to her higher-paid employees wanting to be paid more as well. She often employs students on a temporary basis and said she may not be able to hire as many workers if the wage rises.

Why should voters choose you for this office?

How can the two What can be done to major parties better improve the nation’s work together to health care system? ensure progress in Washington?

What is your position on immigration reform?

How will the result of the presidential race affect your ability to represent your district?

I’ve been standing up for the values of the 1st Congressional District and making long-lasting and significant reforms. I won meaningful advances in renewable energy against Republican opposition. I am driving Congress to modernize health care by paving the way for critical embryonic stem cell research. And, as a tireless advocate for women’s rights, I stopped anti-choice extremists from defunding Planned Parenthood.

As I’ve done time and time again with colleagues across the aisle, it’s important for the two parties to find common ground. On my landmark biomedical research legislation, 21st Century Cures, I worked with Fred Upton, a Republican from Michigan, to find common ground. Together, we crafted a bill that enjoys overwhelming bipartisan support while providing much-needed funds and regulatory innovation to our biomedical research operations.

As ranking member of the Investigatory subcommittee for the House Energy and Commerce Committee, I share responsibility for the committee that should be working to improve the Affordable Care Act. We should determine exactly what hasn’t worked and what we can do to improve the bill. The ACA has expanded health care and provided much-needed relief for millions of Americans, but it isn’t perfect, and in the next Congress, my subcommittee will lead the charge on important fixes.

We need comprehensive immigration reform. The president is right to take executive action while the Republicans block meaningful reforms, but DACA and DAPA are just stopgap measures; we must ensure that the immigration system works for everyone and is fair to Americans who have been in this country for decades.

My constituents deserve the same support from me and my office, regardless of the person or party in power. I work hard to provide services and introduce and sponsor legislation that improves the lives of my constituents, and I’ll continue to fight for their values regardless of who our president is.

As a professional engineer, with over 30 years of experience in roadway design and construction, I will bring a new perspective to Congress. Engineers have a “get the job done” attitude, and when I am sent to Washington, D.C., I will work to get the country back on the correct path. I will work to make America truly the land of the free and a place that is fair to all people.

The Democratic Party is overly liberal, and the Republican Party is too conservative. They are both too entrenched in their own views to work together. That’s why now is the time to consider other parties, like the Libertarian Party. Congress needs to focus on the nation’s most pressing needs and not bicker over divisive social issues.

We need more competition and accountability in the medical industry. Health care has become big business in this country, and skews the rules and laws to their benefit. We need to review lawsuits related to medical missteps and not make medical lawsuits a form of winning the lottery. Maybe new radical ideas, like if a medical procedure does not work, the patient does not have to pay for it.

In industries like agriculture and construction, America needs immigrant labor. We cannot bring in every person that wants to come to America. For people in Mexico and Central America, I would set locations in these countries where a person could apply for a worker permit, student entry and visitor pass to come to America. This pass would be good for a year, and could be renewed. If people violate the terms, they will be requested to return home.

If Gary Johnson, Libertarian candidate, wins the presidency, that will be great. I will work with him to get America’s budget in line, reduce government control over people’s lives, and restore economic freedom. If I am elected I will work with whoever the president is and do what is good for the American people.

I have a heart to help and a PLAN to help the people in need in our great city. I am NOT a politician, I am a businessman who knows how to get things done.

They cannot. What we have in D.C. are corrupt individuals on both sides of the aisle who are ONLY interested in their next campaign donation. What we need in D.C. are individuals who are there to serve and not be served.

1) Give consumers more control of their health care. 2) Allow for the sale of heath care services across state lines. 3) Get government out of the system wherever and whenever possible. 4) Remove the health care tax on the American citizens.

1) Secure the border. 2) Decrease the time it takes to become a legal citizen. 3) Provide a reasonable path for those here now to remain IF they comply with the law. 4) Remove sanctuary incentives for people to be here illegally.

work professor Jennifer Greenfield, disputes this, citing a 2015 paper that found a minimal effect on employment rates from rising minimum wages over 15 years. Here’s a look at the eight additional questions that made the ballot: Amendment 69: ColoradoCare Amendment 69 would establish a statewide single-payer health care system called ColoradoCare. The system would be funded by new income taxes of 3.33 percent on employees and 6.67 percent on employers. It would be governed by a 21-member elected board of trustees. The election procedure will be determined by an interim 15-member board appointed by state legislative leadership and the governor. Parker activist Richard Turnquist was one of the early opponents of Amendment 69, registering the Committee to Stop Colorado Care in November 2015. “It represents a massive increase in government and in our state income tax burden,” he said.

Turnquist is also skeptical of the quality of single-payer health care. The Colorado Medical Society board of directors also voted to oppose ColoradoCare, citing “complexity (and) uncertainty.” The measure has also split the left, with NARAL Pro-Choice Colorado coming out against it in June, citing concerns the state constitution ban on public funding for abortion would limit access to it. Morgan Carroll, the Democratic challenger to incumbent Mike Coffman in the 6th Congressional District, also declined to support ColoradoCare, saying rising health care costs must be solved at the national level. Democratic House District 38 hopeful Robert Bowen is one of a handful of candidates in the state actively supporting Amendment 69. “I think it’s something we ought to be doing, and it’s in the party platform,” he said. Bowen said he believes the system would actually decrease health costs for businesses but he

said the health insurance industry wields a lot of power in the state. Proposition 106: Aid in dying Proposition 106 would allow a terminally-ill person with a prognosis of six months or less to live to self-administer aid-in-dying medication. The proposition would create the Colorado End-of-Life Options Act. In order to obtain the medication, the patient’s terminal prognosis must have been confirmed by his or her primary physician as well as a consulting physician, and the patient must be determined to be mentally capable, voluntarily express a wish to receive the medication and be a Colorado resident 18 or older. The measure also makes it a felony to tamper with a request for aid-in-dying medication or knowingly coerce a terminallyill person to request it, and also prohibits insurers from issuing policies with conditions about whether people can request the medication. Littleton clinical social worker Libby Bortz, who used to teach

Very little.

biomedical ethics, said she strongly favors the act, an opinion formed by her experience working with terminally ill people. “We are able to help our pets when they’re suffering,” she said. “Why we can’t help a human being is beyond me.” The Centennial Institute at Colorado Christian University has opposed the measure, saying it doesn’t have necessary safeguards. “It opens the door for insurance companies and government to be invloved in everybody’s end-of-life decisions,” Director Jeff Hunt said. Hunt said he and the Centennial Institute also oppose assisted suicide on philosphical grounds. If Proposition 106 passes, Colorado would join Oregon, Washington, Vermont, Montana and California as states that allow terminally-ill people to end their lives. Only Oregon and Washington passed those laws by ballot initiative. Ballot continues on Page 21

6th Congressional District

Why should voters choose you for this office?

How can the two What can be done to major parties better improve the nation’s work together to health care system? ensure progress in Washington?

What is your position on immigration reform?

How will the result of the presidential race affect your ability to represent your district?

114 Congress of the United States th

In the 12 years that I’ve worked in the state Legislature, I’ve fought to pass common-sense, bipartisan reforms like providing housing and job training for veterans and our service members, capping skyrocketing tuition hikes at our universities, and passing tough lobbying and campaign finance reforms to keep unaccountable money out of our politics. Washington today is broken — and we need leaders who will work across the aisle to get real results for our families.

When I was state Senate president, I sat down every one of my 34 senate colleagues and pledged to find one area of common ground that we could work on. It wasn’t always easy, but I’m proud to say that we did it — those conversations resulted in real, meaningful changes for Coloradans. Unfortunately, that bipartisan spirit doesn’t exist in Washington today — and politicians like Mike Coffman have contributed to that dysfunction.

This is a country of immigrants, and I think it’s clear to everyone, Republican and Democrat alike, that our current system is broken. We need comprehensive immigration reform now — families across this country are being torn apart, doing great damage to our communities and to our economy. Any reform deal should include a pathway to citizenship and the DREAM Act.

I am laser-focused on winning and representing the best interests of the 6th Congressional District. While I don’t agree with Hillary Clinton on everything, it’s clear that Donald Trump is completely unqualified to serve as commander-in-chief. But we also need to realize that Donald Trump didn’t appear out of thin air — he is the product of extremists in Congress who have been peddling the same hateful, radical rhetoric long before Donald Trump decided to run.

I grew up in this district. I attended public school in this district. I understand, first hand, the challenges and the opportunities afforded us. I have and will stand up to Washington and fight for you — for a stronger economy, to cut onerous regulations on small business, for lower taxes so families can keep more of what they earn, and I will fight to keep us safe. I understand the need to maintain a strong military but also to cut wasteful Pentagon spending.

What’s clear is that Coloradans are still spending too much money for too little health care. I believe that if you are sick, you should be able to see a doctor. That’s why we need to empower Medicare and Medicaid to negotiate drug prices — one of the highest drivers of skyrocketing health care prices.

Why should voters choose you for this office?

Describe an accomplishment that best illustrates your effectiveness as a leader.

How can the two major parties better work together to ensure progress at the Capitol?

What can be done to ensure the metro area’s transportation system will be able to keep up with the growing population?

What issue most deserves more attention during the 2017 session than it saw in 2016?

Party: Republican About Beckman: The 30-year Littleton resident has a degree from Colorado State University-Pueblo and a certification from Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government. She served on Littleton City Council and as an Arapahoe County commissioner, then was director of administrative solutions in the Colorado Department of Human Services. More information: electsusanbeckman@comcast. net; www.electsusanbeckman.com

I have a proven track record of being accountable to the community, of being frugal with taxpayers’ money, and of making things happen that others said could not be done. I want to take to the state Legislature the lessons that I learned while serving as an Arapahoe County commissioner about stewardship of your tax dollars and responsive government service. I will continue my track record of fiscal responsibility, innovative thinking and tireless work ethic to protect our quality of life.

The Parker and Arapahoe Intersection was one of the most congested intersections in the state of Colorado. When the Colorado Department of Transportation informed Arapahoe County that it would be 30 years until needed improvements occurred, an innovative approach was needed. I led the effort to force prioritization by working with our congressional delegation, regional and city leaders. The strong coalition was successful, CDOT agreed to reprioritize and fund this project and a new $51 million-dollar interchange was constructed.

I love the quote “If you don’t know where you’re going any road will do” and it sure rings true in the Colorado Legislature with 500 disconnected draft bills introduced every year. Both parties would benefit from focusing on Colorado-specific problems. Time set aside before the legislative session begins for mutual strategic planning and prioritization would identify issues, guide legislation and direct the governor’s budget. This basic proven organizational effectiveness tool would be a good place to start.

It is wrong that a $27 billion-dollar state budget was adopted this year with less than $200 million for road construction projects. We cannot sit by and watch our transportation infrastructure deteriorate. A dedicated funding stream is needed to implement a strategic and well-communicated transportation initiative that would accelerate future federal transportation dollars on specific road projects across the state. This has been done in prior administrations with great accountability and success.

Reducing overregulation and over-legislating. With over 500 pieces of legislation introduced each year, every year, significant compliance requirements, additional red tape and burdensome regulations are passed down to individuals, local communities and business. I have seen what burdensome regulation does to local government and businesses. It leaves a trail of lost time, lost opportunities and lost revenue in its wake. Colorado needs strategic reform to reduce unnecessary and unfunded mandates for local government and businesses.

Robert Bowen

I am answering the call for change. My opponent offers more of the same; I will be an agent of change. I spent my career as business owner creating jobs; my opponent is a career politician. I do not take special interest money and I owe lobbyists no favors.

I served six years as state representative in the 1980s, in the minority party. I worked across the aisle and passed many pieces of important legislation that changed our community. My proudest achievement was passing legislation that resulted in RTD building the light rail system. Prior to my bill, no one was seriously discussing mass transit in Denver, let alone doing anything.

When I served, we listened to each other; we socialized with each other; we went to dinner. We still disagreed on issues, but our default position was compromise. We found common ground. That is how I, as a Democrat in a Republican Legislature, passed major bills. If elected, I will always listen and always seek compromise, like I did before.

It is dishonest to say we can fix our transportation system without money. We need to put together a statewide plan with specific projects and ask the voters for that money. That money must only be used on those projects, and when they are built, the tax must be automatically repealed. This takes leadership and guts. I led this way on light rail and I can do it again.

Honestly, there is more than one. Almost all the ignored issues including education, high tuition, roads, mental illness, addiction, and the homeless revolve around the lack of money and courage to deal with them. The biggest failure was not putting together a plan voters can trust and asking them for the money. As a result, we fall further behind each year, and the costs go up. We need change, not more of the same.

Party: Democrat About Bowen: The Colorado native has lived in Centennial for four years and is a retired business owner/ manager with a background in construction, real estate development and recycling.

Election workers fight to protect integrity of ballot Arapahoe, Douglas officials dismiss warnings of electioneering, hacking By Tom Skelley tskelley@coloradocommunitymedia.com As Colorado voters begin receiving ballots and the 2016 election cycle winds down, claims of potential electioneering by the Republican presidential candidate are causing some to question the integrity of the election system. Donald Trump has made statements throughout his campaign suggesting he could only lose certain states if the election is “rigged,” and called on supporters to go to polling stations to “watch” other voters. On Oct. 15, he went further, tweeting that the 2016 presidential race “looks like a rigged election.” But Douglas County Election Manager Sheri Davis is having none of that. “He’s a novice to the election process,” she said of Trump. “He doesn’t have a full grasp of the process or he wouldn’t say that.” Davis and Douglas County Clerk and Recorder Merlin Klotz explained that the entire electoral process is closely monitored

MORE INFORMATION Residents who wish to become an election monitor must be certified to do so. Only members of the press or party, candidate and issue representatives are eligible to become monitors. In Arapahoe County, citizens wishing to become election judges can go to ArapahoeVotes.com/apply. Positions are still available at some Aurora polling stations. Anyone interested in becoming a poll monitor can go to the site and click on the 2016 General Election tab for information and requirements. Information is also available at 303-795-4511. Voters in Arapahoe County can find more about voting registration, deadlines and general information at:Arapahoe County: ArapahoeVotes.com by bipartisan teams of election judges. Care is taken in hiring and staff management to match up Republican and Democratic partners every step of the way, from the time ballots are drafted to the time each vote is recorded. “We’ve got both Rs and Ds conducting the election,” Klotz said, “Everybody coming

into the process has their own interests, but the process offsets that interest.” Arapahoe County Clerk and Recorder Matt Crane concurred with Klotz. “Nothing is a one-person operation,” Crane said, adding that every square inch of Arapahoe County’s election buildings are monitored by security cameras. Concerns about vote tampering tend to “bubble up” in presidential election cycles, but Crane said transparency is key to allaying those fears. “We aren’t dismissive of those concerns — it’s good to remind us to go back and validate the process,” Crane said. “We try to be as open and transparent as possible to knock down the rumors and myths that are out there.” While Trump is raising doubts about the electoral system, the Obama administration has accused Russian hackers of trying to influence the election. Recent breaches of Democratic databases have seen the unauthorized release of emails and party members’ personal information, and the FBI is still investigating the breaches. Whether or not those claims turn out to be true, Davis said hackers can’t change a ballot once it’s cast. “There’s no hacking,” Davis insisted.

“The vote-counting system is a stand-alone system” and isn’t connected to the internet. As for Trump’s recruitment of election “watchers,” Crane and Davis both stressed that the process is open to observation, as long as people follow the rules. “You can’t just show up,” Davis said. Campaign members, the press and election volunteers can be certified from election services to monitor polling stations, but individuals without authorization from the department aren’t legally permitted within 100 feet of the building. “They’re certainly welcome to (observe), but we would recommend them brushing up on election law first,” Crane said. “It’s important to know what’s legal and what isn’t.” Crane added that he’s been working with law enforcement to prepare for any scenarios of voter intimidation. “If we get a report that there’s any intimidation going on, we will be out there very quickly,” he said. “We’re preparing for any eventuality.” Klotz and Davis said the Douglas County election team also has been working closely with local police to protect voters, inside or outside the 100-foot perimeter. But they wouldn’t reveal their strategy. “We have our plans,” Klotz said, smiling.

Colorado Secretary of State says election process secure Wayne Williams discusses ballot questions and election process By Kyle Harding kharding@coloradocommunitymedia.com Colorado Secretary of State Wayne Williams appeared at Arapahoe Community College to give an overview of the various initiatives on the Nov. 8 ballot as well as the election process itself — and assured the audience their vote counts.

The Colorado Springs Republican told voters they shouldn’t worry much about Russian hacks of the election system, at least not in Colorado. “None of the tabulation systems are connected to the internet,” he said, noting that ballots are kept in a locked room under video surveillance and with tamper-evident seals. About 95 percent of Colorado voters vote by mail using a paper ballot. Furthermore, 18 counties, including Arapahoe County, use new voting machines

that also produce a paper ballot. Williams broke down the difference between a legislative initiative and a citizen initiative and the process for each one getting on the ballot: A legislative initiative must be approved by twothirds of state lawmakers while a citizen initiative must collect petition signatures equaling 5 percent of the votes cast for the last Secretary of State election. He also explained the difference between an amendment, which changes the state Constitution, and a proposi-

tion, which merely changes state statute, before giving a brief overview of each of the nine initiatives on the statewide ballot. Answering an audience question about whether an individual’s vote truly counts, Williams recounted how Rep. Jared Polis, who represents Colorado’s 2nd Congressional District, won his 2000 race for an at-large State Board of Education seat by only 106 votes out of 1.6 million cast. “So yes,” he said, “your vote matters.”

Why should voters choose you for this office?

Describe an accomplishment that best illustrates your effectiveness as a leader.

What is the biggest problem faced by public K-12 education in Colorado and how would you help solve it?

What is your stance on the proliferation of charter schools in Colorado?

Is there too much standardized testing of Colorado students?

If elected, I will be the only member of the state board of education with a child in public school. I am a longtime supporter of public education, serving as council liaison to public schools while a city councilmember and mayor pro tem. I believe every child deserves the kind of highquality public education my children are receiving so they can be well prepared for college or career.

While serving as city council liaison to the Cherry Creek School District, I worked with state legislators to develop and pass measures to improve school funding. I worked with Bicycle Colorado to deliver Safe Routes to Schools to our local schools. I’m proud to have supported our school resource officers for campus safety. Collaborating with partners to accomplish better outcomes for students is essential, and I am a proven collaborator.

Our greatest challenge is to ensure that every child in Colorado has access to the resources they need to become well prepared for college or career. I will be a strong advocate for smarter public education funding — especially increasing transparency, reducing administrative bloat and routing our tax dollars to the classroom, where they belong. Great schools are essential to a strong economy. I want to see every part of Colorado enjoy great schools and the high-wage jobs that follow.

I support local neighborhood public schools. While most chartering decisions are made at the local level, the state board of education has judicial review for appeals. Local input, including the input of local elected school board members, is important to consider when weighing an appeal. Rubber stamping questionable applications against the will of local stakeholders is a practice I would reverse in this seat. Tax credits or vouchers for private schools can also drain resources from our neighborhood schools, and I do not support these costly schemes.

Steps to reduce standardized testing have helped, and we must remain responsive to students, parents, teachers and community members regarding the impact of standardized testing on the learning process. I support the hub and spoke committees as they work to provide input for Colorado’s interpretation of ESSA. I am a public school parent who will listen to public input as we work to ensure that every child can become well prepared for college or career.

As a teacher and teacher of teachers, I know firsthand how important it is to provide support for teachers, staff and school leaders and how important it is for parents to be able to guide the public education of their students. I have a track record of working collaboratively to find solutions that provide communities the flexibility to meet their needs. I work hard to make sure we have a transparent accountable system.

Developing new regulations and laws that help keep students’ and staffs’ personally identifiable information safe and confidential are among the accomplishments that demonstrate my effectiveness as a leader. I worked with groups of parents, CDE’s staff, district staffs, legislators and fellow board members to create tougher regulations and new laws to protect data. This required tenacity, persistence, subtle persuasion and sometimes toughness, to bring people together to develop creative solutions, all essential leadership skills.

The biggest problem facing K-12 education is the variety of issues we face. From federal intrusion, to teachers needing resources and flexibility to meet the needs of their students, to adequate allocation of resources, to special interest groups trying to influence public education, the issues vary widely. This is why I am a strong supporter of local control and will work hard to support local communities developing solutions that work for their students, families and staff.

Every student’s needs are unique and we cannot afford to have a one-sizefits-all public education system. We must make sure there are options so that students have access to the public education solution that meets their needs. So I support community driven choices that provide highquality options for students and are accountable to the same standards as neighborhood schools.

Yes, Colorado students spend too much time taking standardized tests. I worked with my fellow board members to reduce testing time required by the state. Despite this, schools, districts, colleges and the armed services all require various standardized tests. In addition, students often face a variety of assessments to determine placement and or identify skills that need reinforcement. I will continue to work to reduce testing burdens so students spend more time learning.

For Clinton or Trump, the end might come early By Julie Pace and Hope Yen Associated Press Each night, Hillary Clinton’s data experts head to a conference room on the 11th floor of her Brooklyn, New York, headquarters, to start counting votes. The sessions in the “early voter boiler room,” as it’s been dubbed by campaign aides, stretch into the early hours of the morning. The team pores over turnout patterns in states where advance voting is already underway, projects how many votes Clinton and Republican Donald Trump have already received, and updates crucial targeting lists of the voters she still needs. For Clinton, October is when she’s likely to win or lose the election, not Nov. 8. This week, Clinton’s campaign hopes to have a solid enough sample of the early vote to know whether the Democrat is on track to win the White House. “Many battleground states are already voting so every day is Election Day,’’ said Matt Dover, Clinton’s voter analytics direc-

Proposition 107: Presidential Primary Election Proposition 107 would reestablish the state’s presidential primary elections. Colorado held presidential primaries in 1992, 1996 and 2000, but has used the caucus system since. Both Republican and Democratic voters criticized the caucus this year as being chaotic, and many Republican voters were upset that the party did not conduct a straw poll to determine the preferred presi-

Initial metrics show good news for Clinton in North Carolina, a must-win state for Trump. There are modestly positive signs for the Republican in Iowa, but that’s a state the Democrat can likely afford to lose. The Republican National Committee, which oversees early voting and turnout operations for Trump, is also encouraging

dential candidate. Proposition 107 would also allow participation by unaffiliated voters. Proposition 108: Unaffiliated voter participation in primary elections Proposition 108 would open Colorado’s primary elections to unaffiliated voters. Under current law, a voter must be affiliated with a political party to vote in that party’s primary. Amendment T: No exception to involuntary service Amendment T would amend the state Constitution, removing an exception allowing the use of involuntary servitude as a pun-

supporters to take advantage of opportunities to cast ballots before Nov. 8. The party has significantly stepped up its analytics and voter targeting operations since being outmatched by Democrats in the past two presidential elections, but the 2016 race is the first test of its strength in a national election. Despite improvements, the RNC system was always intended to be a complement to whatever operations the eventual GOP nominee brought to the table. Trump arrived in the general election with intense enthusiasm among his core supporters but few ways to harness it into trackable voter data. Unlike Clinton, whose travel schedule is being built around voter registration deadlines and the start of early voting in key states, Trump’s battleground stops haven’t been pegged to those benchmarks. However, there is a noticeably more robust registration effort at Trump rallies and the candidate himself is making explicit early voting appeals to supporters. “Get those ballots in because the only

ishment for crime. This could be interpreted to prohibit work requirements in the criminal justice system. Amendment U: Exempt possessory interests from property tax Amendment U would eliminate property tax for businesses and individuals who derive a benefit of $6,000 or less from the use of government-owned real property and adjust the exemption amount every two years to keep up with inflation. Currently, the state does not tax government-owned property but does impose property tax on those who rent, lease or have other rights to use a government property, such as cattle-grazing rights.

way this is going to be taken away (is) if we’re foolish or if we let people take it away from us,’’ Trump said Oct. 3 during a rally in Colorado. “I hate to interrupt my speech with these minor details but they’re very important, right?’’ Republicans traditionally do well initially with mail-in absentee balloting before Democrats surpass them during in-person early voting. That makes the start of in-person voting a key indicator as to whether core Democratic constituencies, such as young people and non-whites, show up. “For me, voting early is a matter of convenience, and if I don’t do it I’m unlikely to vote at all,’’ said Joseph Wozniak, 23, of Macon, Georgia. A recent college graduate who declined to say who he is supporting in the election, Wozniak is working on early vote efforts for the nonpartisan organization Democracy Works. Thirty-seven states allow voting with little restriction before Election Day, either in person or via mail. As of this week, 34 of those states, including Colorado, are voting.

Amendment 71: Raise the bar for constitutional amendments Amendment 71 would create new requirements for placing a constitutional initiative on the ballot. Currently, to get a citizen initiative, backers must collect enough signatures to equal 5 percent of the votes cast in the most recent election for Secretary of State in a six-month period. In 2016, the requirement was 98,492 signatures. Amendment 71 would require that some of the signatures be collected in each of the state’s 35 Senate districts, in the amount of 2 percent of the registered voters in that district. It would also require a 55

percent super-majority of votes to adopt a change to the Constitution, rather than the current simple majority. Amendment 72: Increase in tobacco tax Amendment 72 would raise the state tax on cigarettes from 84 cents to $2.59 and increase the tax on other tobacco products from 40 percent of the retail price to 62 percent. The revenue would be distributed to various health programs that are already funded by tobacco taxes, as well as research grants studying tobacco-related health issues, tobacco-use prevention programs and others.

Why should voters choose you for this office?

Describe an accomplishment that best illustrates your effectiveness as a leader.

How can the two major parties better work together to ensure progress at the Capitol?

What can be done to ensure the metro area’s transportation system will be able to keep up with the growing population?

What issue most deserves more attention during the 2017 session than it saw in 2016?

I love Colorado and am committed to helping our citizens reach their potential. The first step in achieving this goal is to get government out of the way. With public- and private-sector experience, I have first-hand awareness how government can hamper businesses from succeeding. As a Capitol outsider, I am the only candidate in this race capable of bringing a fresh perspective to serving the interests of Arapahoe County instead of a party agenda.

I was elected Arapahoe clerk and recorder in a 2004 recall election following a public scandal involving my predecessor. I was recognized for successfully restoring credibility, order, efficiency and morale to an office with 117 employees. For the next nine years, I successfully oversaw numerous elections in Arapahoe County. During the recent recession, I was instrumental in preparing and managing a balanced budget while providing excellent customer service to the residents of Arapahoe County.

No other candidate in this race can claim to work as successfully as I have with Democrats on the key issues of importance to Arapahoe County and Colorado. Rather than fight for the needs of the Republican caucus, I will always keep the priorities of all Coloradans top of mind. What’s required to achieve bipartisanship is by electing Capitol outsiders with greater perspective on the needs of all Coloradans.

Infrastructure is in a crisis condition in Colorado and we must look at every reasonable solution available just to maintain the existing system, not expanding it. Other than reprioritizing general fund monies, some sources of revenue could include tolls, bond proceeds, and vehicle miles traveled fees. Any idea must be put to a vote of the people to determine if there is the necessary voter support to invest in infrastructure.

Many Coloradans are struggling to find a home they can afford. Our first priority is to remove the legal barriers that prevent homebuilders from increasing the supply of new homes without fear of a lawsuit. We must bring down the cost to own or rent a home — for young couples wishing to purchase their first home or older couples wishing to downsize. The Legislature failed us by doing nothing to fix the problem.

I’ve worked blue-collar and white-collar jobs, served our military as a civilian contractor, run a business, taken on powerful special interests as a legislator, and repeatedly brought people together to find compromise. I was born to World War II refugees, and labored long and hard to earn American citizenship, so I cherish the freedoms and opportunities that we enjoy here. I want to spend my remaining years doing everything I can to protect them.

In 2013, Department of Corrections Chief Tom Clements was assassinated by a man recently released on parole. The killer had been released on the wrong date, directly from solitary confinement, and was supposedly under intensive supervision. Our parole system had failed us. I convened hearings of the Judiciary Committee, which I chair, collaborated closely with Republican Rep. Bob Gardner and together we crafted and passed a bipartisan, sweeping reform of the parole system.

My most far-reaching contributions have been accomplished in a bipartisan fashion, by crafting legislation with my Republican colleagues, and garnering wide support for the solutions we create together. I always start by listening to interested citizens, and the measures I help to pass vastly benefit from that public input. That style of legislating may have been lost in Washington, but it’s still possible to work that way here in Colorado.

Re-categorize the Hospital Provider Fee. Hospitals pay the fee to the state, the state procures a dollar-for-dollar Medicaid match from the federal government, and the hospitals get more than their money back because they treat fewer uninsured patients. That’s why hospitals support it. If we re-categorize that fee as a TABOR enterprise, hospitals would still get exactly the same benefit, but we’d free up many millions for transportation/education without increasing taxes at all.

The concerns I most frequently hear at the door are: quality of our K-12 schools; roads not coping with the population growth; affordability of college; rents becoming out of reach; scarcity of affordable first homes; wages and salaries not growing enough. As state revenues naturally rise with the growing economy, it’s crucial that, without tax increases, we address these matters, and we can. The most deserving? Coping with the multi-faceted negative effects of population growth.

Why should voters choose you for this office?

Describe an accomplishment that best illustrates your effectiveness as a leader.

How can the two major parties better work together to ensure progress at the Capitol?

What can be done to ensure the metro area’s transportation system will be able to keep up with the growing population?

What issue most deserves more attention during the 2017 session than it saw in 2016?

I want voters in this district to see me as a person just like them. One who has lived here, worked here, and raised their families here. I want to share my experiences in life with them and do all I can to give them the same chances that I had. We have enough lawyers, business owners and career politicians in government. It’s time we elected some regular people who will fight for change.

My son Alex was murdered in the Aurora theater on 7/20/2012. I have been out in front on all the issues surrounding that day since. I have done my best to attend any meeting or discussion where that issue has been discussed. I have testified at our state Capitol. I have met with elected officials in Colorado as well as going to D.C. to talk to them. All this I have done while trying to cope with the grief of my son being murdered.

We must all be reminded to work in the moment. We need to do what is right for our communities, not just worry about our next election or our next vote. Actions taken at the state Capitol affect Coloradans every day, and what we do must reflect the trust we have been given by the voters. I have made it a priority on my campaign to put people above partisanship and talk to all voters.

It is my understanding that when the hospital provider fee is moved to an enterprise, that money would be used for education and roads. We need to be mindful of our growing population and continue to promote, and fully fund, forms of public transportation to ease traffic flow. We need to listen to the recommendations about city planning from the cities and speak to stakeholders about where more transit is needed.

Earning paid family leave I believe is a must. It’s hard to understand when a person must choose between their job and their family during a time of sickness or tragedy. Having a union job like I did allowed me to take the time I needed after our tragedy without the worries of where the next paycheck is coming from.

After 25 years in business and as a family man, I have learned an important lesson. Whether I’m meeting with a CFO in a boardroom, working with a construction professional on a jobsite, or helping my wife with her business or our family, I am not the guy with all the answers. Instead, I’m the one who can listen, understand, and work hard to discover those answers and solve problems.

I was recently recognized by the University of Colorado for my continuous support of higher education. That support included hard work to lower costs to students and families. Last session, I carried the bill which removed certain unnecessary constraints and regulations which impaired the university. CU President Bruce Benson noted, “Sen. Jack Tate demonstrated real leadership [with] legislation this past session that will allow us to operate more efficiently and effectively, saving millions of dollars.”

Centennial citizens can take some comfort in knowing that any partisan bickering that’s currently happening here is not as bad as in Washington. That said, we must continue to improve the dialogue and debate about the important issues facing Coloradans. A focus on quantitative reasoning brings honesty and agreement into the discussion before emotional arguments and political narratives take hold. That approach, with commonsense Western values, has helped me in my work for Colorado.

I will work hard to ensure that our highways and bridges get the attention that they need. With the surging population, we can no longer neglect infrastructure as a priority. After all, that is a core function of state government. I will continue to support legislation that will authorize the state to bond over $3 billion in revenue for critical transportation projects for Coloradans. A lack of adequate infrastructure hurts jobs and the economy.

Construction litigation reform. Currently, most construction activity in the area is for apartments, while rising home costs are squeezing Colorado’s middle class out of the south metro area. By removing unfair obstacles to creating housing supply, we can encourage responsible and affordable home development so that our families can realize their goals of continued home ownership and economic prosperity. Studies have consistently shown that the net worth of homeowners over time significantly outpaces that of renters.

Why should voters choose you for this office?

Describe an accomplishment that best illustrates your effectiveness as a leader.

How can the two major parties better work together to ensure progress at the Capitol?

What can be done to ensure the metro area’s transportation system will be able to keep up with the growing population?

What issue most deserves more attention during the 2017 session than it saw in 2016?

We need a major change in our politics and a fresh perspective in our government. I have a valuescentered approach to finding common ground and the experience to effectively make a government that actually works. I’m also the only candidate who was raised with our Colorado values. I attended Colorado public schools from kindergarten through graduation from Arapahoe High School. I was formed by our community here. No one else in this race can say that.

Throughout my career, the best things I’ve done have been by bringing people together, across parties, across ideologies, and even across faiths. When I worked for Ken Salazar in the US Senate we got a letter from a Coloradan serving in Iraq whose friend was killed by an IED. I brought together top Democrats and Republicans to pass legislation that’s still saving military lives.

Our leaders should talk less and listen more. Our legislators need to be able to reach across the aisle to find solutions. Building common ground starts with listening to each other. On this campaign I’ve had thousands of conversations with folks at their doors, and folks can always call me on my cell at 303-3585551. In the legislature I’ll continue to listen to my constituents and colleagues and take those stories with me to build an even better Colorado.

The influx of people moving to Colorado means infrastructure concerns must be addressed immediately. We’re building too few homes and investing too little in our roads. I support an accounting fix to our state budget involving the hospital provider fee that would free up hundreds of millions of dollars under the TABOR cap — without raising taxes. We need to fund infrastructure improvements for our roads, water, and other utilities to sustain a healthy community and productive economy.

The Denver Post reported that this last legislative session was the most partisan and least productive in our state’s history. Issues like construction defect laws and the hospital provider fee were held up because of party, not policy reasons. This is not how government should work. In the Legislature I’ll stand my ground and I’ll also find common ground, so that together we can build an even better Colorado.

I am a real person, with real experience, who can represent real people, and make a real difference. As a small business owner, I have a practical understanding of how to build a strong economy. As an elected official, I understand the difference between personal agendas and public policy. As a dedicated volunteer, I am motivated to serve my community. And, as a wife of 20 years and mother of two young children, I can appreciate the challenges facing Colorado families.

With 17 years as a business owner and more than 60 years of volunteer leadership experience, I have repeatedly demonstrated my effectiveness by growing organizations, improving efficiency, and bringing new approaches to persistent challenges. One specific example is my success as an entrepreneur. As the leader of the company, I set the direction, recruited a spectacular team, and then empowered them to do their jobs; everyone on the team benefited from the success of the company.

Parties don’t work together, people do. Legislators need to think of each other less as members of political parties and more as colleagues on the same team. Anyone who has held a job knows that we manage to work with people of different backgrounds, beliefs and political parties every day at the office. Why is that lost when the office is the State Capitol? I am committed to putting people above politics both in serving my constituents and in working with other legislators.

We have not significantly invested in our roads for over a decade … and it shows. We need to maintain and improve our roads, invest in transit systems to relieve congestion, and modernize our transportation system to improve efficiency and safety. We need to prioritize transportation funding from existing revenues because infrastructure is an essential service of government and because improving transportation provides returns through economic growth. We need to renew the TRANS bonds to help fund the tremendous backlog of projects.

The 2016 legislative session started with three main issues: the hospital provider fee, transportation funding, and construction defects reform. Despite introducing 685 bills, and passing 387 bills, the session ended with no resolution to those key issues. I believe the Legislature should focus more attention on addressing critical issues rather than hundreds of incremental bills. In addition to the issues held over from last year, I feel that education funding and mental health services are critical issues that deserve attention in 2017.

Why should voters choose you for this office?

Describe an accomplishment that best illustrates your effectiveness as a leader.

How can the two major parties better work together to ensure progress at the Capitol?

What can be done to ensure the metro area’s transportation system will be able to keep up with the growing population?

What issue most deserves more attention during the 2017 session than it saw in 2016?

I want to work for the good of the community — health-care issues, responsible gun safety, equal rights.

I was one of five elected directors at Hi-Desert Medical Center hospital for over 30 years and fought for women’s health services and prenatal care for residents, opening prenatal and OB unit and recruiting physicians for the area.

We need to work on plans needed for the good of the residents not special interests — work together with all for affordable education and access to care for all residents.

Continue to work on transit system for Colorado with trains and repair roads.

The TABOR amendment needs to be voted down in order for our community to receive all needed funds for projects. Transportation is a need for all residents to commute to work in downtown and throughout the community for those without transportation. All parties need to work together for the good of Colorado.

I have spent my career defending businesses and employers from government bureaucracy and over-regulation. As a result, I have a deep understanding of how government must be reformed. Government does not create jobs, and government is not the solution to our problems. Economic growth and jobs come from the private sector. I will continue to work hard to make sure that our laws are clear and regulate business in a thoughtful, measured and reasonable way.

I am focused on tackling problems with new and innovative solutions. Our educational system seems to assume that all students will attend college. They don’t. Moreover, even after a four-year degree, many of our students are graduating without marketable skills. This past legislative session, I led a bipartisan effort to pass House Bill 1288, which focuses on reforming education through a publicprivate partnership, moving us toward apprenticeships and core competencies in established and emerging industries.

The most important thing we do every legislative session is pass the budget. However, outside of the sixmember Joint Budget Committee, this process does not receive the attention it deserves. We will work together in a more constructive fashion if we spend more time focusing on the state’s budget priorities and less time on partisan wedge issues that divide us.

We have a great transportation system for 3.5 million people. However, 5 million people now live in Colorado. We can no longer neglect this. Obviously, funding has been a challenge. Senate Bill 210, sponsored last session by House Minority Leader Brian DelGrosso, would have put a question on the November ballot asking voters to authorize the state to bond $3.5 billion in revenue for transportation projects throughout Colorado. I supported this bill and would support similar legislation next session.

We must reform Colorado’s construction defect litigation laws. Condominium construction has been severely limited in our state due to current law, which makes litigation the weapon of first resort against builders. This litigious climate has resulted in much higher insurance rates and deterred the construction of multi-family homes. The overwhelming percentage of housing construction is now in the apartment sector, where we see skyrocketing rents. To grow effectively, we must make affordable housing a priority.

Carol Barrett Party: Democrat About Barrett: A resident of Centennial since 2011, Barrett previously held elected office as a director of Hi-Desert Medical Center, located in Southern California, for more than 30 years.

changed that, and also authorized same-day voter registration. “An active voter is anybody newly registered, anybody who votes or has any activity in our office, or who hasn’t moved,” Crane said. “If you’re inactive now, it’s most likely because you’ve either moved or we’ve gotten a return mail from the address.” Crane said people who have moved should go to www.govotecolorado.com to update their registration.

“It takes a cast with a certain amount of experience to tell this story,” said director Robert Michael Sanders in his director’s notes for “The Last Romance.” “These people on stage have just that. They have all lived a life, loved, lost and tried again.” With Joe DiPietro’s well-crafted, sweet but not saccharine script and skilled actors, only a suggestion of a set is needed — a bench and projected picture of a surrounding park carry most of the action. The part of a young man, played by a man with operatic voice who introduces scenes with a familiar aria, is a novel touch and ties the scenes together in a most pleasant way, since octogenarian Ralph Bellini (the excellent Joey Wishnia) had hoped for a career in opera and continues to love it. He has walked to the dog

park in the hopes of meeting an attractive woman he’d spotted earlier with her Chihuahua. Enter Carol Reynolds (Martha Harmon Pardee), who talks to an unseen Peaches, running among furry friends. We meet Peaches (a well-behaved Rocky Balboa Van De Sanders, who is also experienced on the stage) in Act II. Carol seems reserved and brittle until Ralph makes her laugh. He wants to share his love of opera as the pair fall in love. Romance continues on Page 30

Knee Arthritis Pain: One HUGE Mistake And Two “Smart Moves”

Doctor’s Simple Advice Gets Rave Reviews By Patients Lucky Enough To Give It A Try By Matt Edgar America’s Health Writer

Denver- Have you been told that exercise will help your knee arthritis pain? Well... has it helped? If it hasn’t, one local doctor has a very good reason why. Not only that - he says if you are trying to exercise with knee arthritis - you might be making a HUGE mistake. Sounds crazy? Yes it does. In fact, I thought it was a ridiculous thing to say. That is until I talked to some of his patients who gave him rave reviews. Many said he completely changed their life. When they first came to the office, their knee arthritis pain was so bad they could barely walk and were scheduled for total knee replacement surgery. In a relatively short period of time, they cancelled surgery and are enjoying their lives again. Why is exercising a HUGE mistake and what does this doctor recommend that is helping so many knee arthritis sufferers who come to see them from all over the state? Double Edged Sword The doctor says that exercising with knee arthritis is a double edged sword. It is true, your knee joints need motion to be healthy.

And lack of motion can be very detrimental. Without motion joints become “sick.” And in theory exercising should help knee arthritis. But here is the BIG problem: Knee arthritis is condition that dries up the lubricating fluids in your knee. It also changes the joint surface and creates bone spurs. Because of these changes - exercising on an arthritic knee can cause more swelling, more pain and more arthritic changes. Imagine driving your car without any oil. What happens? The engine parts scrape together and wear out. You can’t simply drive your car more and make it better. And in many cases - you simply can’t just exercise your knee and make it better, either. What’s the answer? In a car it’s simple - put in more oil. And then make sure the oil level is correct and it is changed when necessary. With your knee joints - it is a little more complicated. The major lubricating fluid in your knee joint is called synovial fluid. Synovial fluid is the fluid that “dries up” when you suffer with arthritis. But there is good news: Now doctors can inject one of the building blocks of synovial fluid

Making Knee Arthritis Pain Worse: Research has discovered that people are suffering with arthritis much younger than expected. Making the right treatment choices now can possibly stop the progression and eliminate the pain.

directly into your knee joint. This building block of synovial fluid is called hyaluronic acid. And when hyaluronic acid is injected directly into the knee joint, many experts believe it helps lubricate the joint. Some say it is like squirting oil on a rusty door hinge. This allows the knee joint to glide more smoothly and often reduces or even eliminates pain. And here is the most important part: Now that the joint is lubricated and can move with

less or no pain - specific exercises can be a tremendous help. That’s why the doctors (when patients qualify) treat knee arthritis patients with hyaluronic acid injections FIRST and then prescribe a very specific rehabilitation and exercise program specially developed to help knee arthritis pain. This comprehensive knee arthritis pain program is called, “P.A.C.E.” and has been getting wonderful results. So what is the HUGE mistake? If you suffer with knee arthritis and are exercising and the pain is either not getting better - or getting worse - you may be making a mistake. You may actually be making things worse. And that’s the last thing you want to do. What are the two “smart moves?” If you have knee arthritis pain, look into viscosupplementation with hyaluronic acid. In many cases treatment with hyaluronic acid followed by a specific rehabilitation or exercise program can get results when everything else has failed. In fact, it is not uncommon to get pain relief just from the hyaluronic acid treatments alone - without doing any rehabilitation or exercising at all. And the results can be dramatic. If you are thinking about

giving hyaluronic acid treatments a try - this is VERY IMPORTANT: In our opinion the doctor you choose should use advanced imaging technology such as fluoroscopy to guide the injections and make sure the hyaluronic acid goes where it is supposed to. Laser guided digital imaging is one of the best technologies to guide injections. Research shows that without fluoroscopy, doctors miss the joint space up to 30% of the time. Obviously, if the joint space is missed - the treatment cannot work. If you have already had viscosupplementation without this advanced imaging technology and it did not work - you may want to give it another try with a doctor who uses this cutting edge technique to get the best results possible. So, if you suffer with knee arthritis pain, talk to a specialist about viscosupplementation with hyaluronic acid especially if exercise is not working or making things worse. And make sure the doctor you choose works in a state-ofthe-art medical facility and uses advanced fluoroscopic imaging (Like laser guided digital imaging) to guide the injections to make sure the treatments have the best chance to work. For more information on viscosupplementation for knee arthritis or to get a free screening to see if this treatment is right for you, one of the specialists at Osteo Relief Institute can be reached at 720-500-1045.

Knee Pain Treatment Craze In Denver

After thousands already helped knee pain suffers face 48 hour cut off to get risk free screening for incredibly popular treatment (ORI) - The clock is ticking. There is only 48 hours to go. If you suffer with knee arthritis pain and would like to get a risk free knee pain screening to see if the experts at Osteo Relief Institute in Greenwood Village, CO can help you with their extremely popular knee pain relief program - read this right now. Here is why: For the past several years, the experts at Osteo Relief Institute have been literally swarmed with knee arthritis sufferers looking for relief. Nearly all these knee pain sufferers chose Osteo Relief for one reason - their top-notch knee pain relief program featuring viscosupplementation with hyaluronic acid and specially designed rehabilitation program. The SecretTo Success? The experts at Osteo Relief Institute believe one of the biggest reasons for their success is the fact that they have some of the best technology money can buy. Laser Guided Digital Imaging The clinic uses extremely advanced imaging equipment that allows them to see directly into the knee joint that they are treating. This advanced imaging is called, “Laser Guided Digital Imaging” and many experts believe is the difference between success and failure with this knee pain treatment. And probably the best thing about this technology is that it has allowed the experts at Osteo Relief Institute to get results with knee pain when so many others have failed. What Is This Treatment? This treatment is viscosupplementation with hyaluronic acid (HA). Those are big medical terms that basically means this... When you have knee arthritis - the lubricating fluid (synovial fluid) in your knee joint dries up.

This means instead of gliding smoothly - your bones start to rub and grind against each other. This causes a little pain in the beginning - but over time the pain steadily gets worse until it is excruciating. Hyaluronic acid works so well because it is like “joint oil.” It is a natural substance and is one of the natural building blocks of the synovial fluid that lubricates your knee. Scientists and researchers discovered this natural building block to synovial fluid in the rooster’s comb - that big red thing on top of the roosters head. It is extracted from the roosters comb, purified and concentrated. When it is injected directly into your knee joint, it is like squirting oil on a rusty door hinge. Hyaluronic acid allows your joints to glide more smoothly eliminating a lot of the rubbing, grinding and pain. Why You Should Try This Even If You’ve Already Had Similar Treatments Without results... “We have been able to help so many knee pain sufferers - even many who have already tried other injections like Synvisc, Supartz, Orthovisc and even Hyalgan. We use special and very advanced low-dose videofluoroscopy imaging called “Hologic Digital Imaging” so we can see right into the joint. This allows us to put the Hyalgan exactly where it needs to be. Studies show doctors doing joint injections without fluoroscopy miss the joint up to 30% of the time.” said the director of Arthritis Treatment at Osteo Relief Institute. Osteo Relief Institute is a state of the art medical facility offering only the best technology. And that’s not all - Osteo Relief Institute has a complete knee relief program called “P.A.C.E.” to make sure you get the most

Hyalgan Injected Directly Into Knee Joint Like “Joint Oil”

Research Shows Doctors Miss The Joint Space About 30% Of The Time Without Advance Imaging

Successful Treatment - Hyalgan being precisely injected directly into the knee joint using Hologic digital imaging. Advanced imaging allows treatments to be as precise as possible. Hyalgan can lubricate the joint and decrease pain.

Failed Treatment - the injection (and Hyalgan) misses the joint space. Research shows this occurs up to 30% of the time without the use of Hologic Digital Imaging to guide the injection. This is why Hyalgan may not have worked for you.

pain relief and the best possible results from treatment. “Every case is individual. Some patients get quite a bit of relief right away - others take a little more time. But most have been extremely happy and the results usually last for at least 6 months. Patients who were suffering for years with bad knee pain are getting their lives back... going for walks again and exercising. It’s amazing to see. They tell all their friends - that’s why we are swarmed. I can’t tell you how many patients have cancelled their total knee replacement surgeries.” added one of the doctors. How To Get It If you have knee pain, the doctors and staff would like to invite you for a risk free screening to see if you are a candidate for Hyalgan treatments and the P.A.C.E program. All you have to do is call 720-500-1045 right now and when the scheduling specialist answers the phone tell her you would like your free “Knee Pain Screening.” Your screening will only take about 25-30 minutes... you will get all your questions an-

swered and leave knowing if you have possibly found the solution to your knee pain. But You Must Do This RIGHT NOW The specialists at Osteo Relief

Institute can only accept a limited amount of new patients each month for this screening. And because of the demand, we can only guarantee you a spot if you call within the next 48 hours. If you are suffering in pain - make the call right now so you can make your appointment today. Why not take 20 minutes for your risk free screening to discover how you may be able to end your knee arthritis pain? So call 720-500-1045 right now and find out if the experts at Osteo Relief Institute can help you like they have already helped thousands of others in your community. And here’s something really important - Hyaluronic acid treatments and the P.A.C.E program are covered by most insurance and Medicare. To schedule your risk free screening, call 720-500-1045.

If You Can Answer Yes - You Are Eligible For A Knee Arthritis Screening With The Experts At Osteo Relief Institute Do you have pain and osteoarthritis (arthritis) of the knee?

Have you already tried viscosupplementation (Hyalgan, Supartz, Synvisc) without satisfactory results?

Leaves, leagues may change, but results stay same

Heritage rolls to easy win Eagles remain unbeaten in Plains League By Jim Benton jbenton@colorado communitymedia.com Heritage used four quarterbacks in the second half of its Oct. 14 game against Gateway, but the Eagles do not have a quarterback controversy. Coach Tyler Knoblock had the opportunity to clear his bench with the 40-point mercy rule and a running clock enforced early in the third quarter, as the Eagles cruised to a 40-6 Class 4A Plains League victory over the Olympians at Littleton Public Schools Stadium. “It’s nice when you can get some of those guys who don’t get a lot of playing time in the game,” said Knoblock. “It makes you happy to be a football coach.” The win improved the Eagles’ league record to 2-0 and 5-2 overall.

Key moments Senior quarterback Chase Hanson hit tight end John Carlson with a 7-yard touchdown pass with 4:41 left in the first quarter to start the rout. Key players/statistics Hanson threw three touchdown passes, two to Hanson, before the starters went to the sidelines when the Eagles reached the 40-point margin with 9:54 left in the third quarter. Tyler Zoesch, who game into the game as the league’s rushing leader, had a 5-yard touchdown run. Josh Martin added a 28-yard sprint for a touchdown. Mitchell Debban caught a 44-yard TD strike from Hanson and Caleb Tompson wrapped up the Eagles scoring with a 4-yard TD run. Gateway gambled five times to gain first downs on fourth-down plays but converted only one. They said it “We did not overlook them

because we know Gateway has great athletes,” said Hanson. “The defense did a great job holding them down, stopping them on big fourth downs, and the big boys up front let us open up the passing game a little bit.” Carlson was called for holding on Heritage’s first series, which nullified a long run by Martin. But that was only time Heritage was forced to punt. “Offensively, we clicked and we looked really good,” said Carlson. “It was an all-around great game, and we’re getting ready for a dogfight next week.” Knoblock couldn’t keep from looking ahead after the Eagles grabbed a 33-0 halftime lead. “I was really proud to come out and have a first half like we did,” he said. “We have a big contest next week. We’ve already been working to make preparations on a couple things we might use in a couple of league contests we have left.”

Fall is the time for change. Leaves on trees change color and fall off. And this past week, I’ve had to change the climatecontrol system in the car from air conditioning during the warmth of the afternoon to the heat in the evening to take off the chill. There has also been a change with the new league alignments in high school football. The idea was to dissolve leagues like the Centennial and 5A Jefferson County that seemed to always have some of the state’s best teams playing against each other week after week during the conference schedule. There was an occasional lopsided victory, which can’t be avoided no matter which teams are playing in which leagues. Those blowouts have not been eliminated in the new alignments. Jim Benton Hopefully, games will get OVERTIME more competitive, but the good teams will continue to be good no matter the alignment or the name of the league. In the seven new Class 5A leagues, the average margin of victory during the first week of conference play was 26.9 points with five games decided by more than 40 points. Games were a little closer in the second week of 5A conference play with a one-point decision, three four- point victories and a five-point margin, but those were offset by a 55-point blowout and three 40-plus-point lopsided games. The average margin of victory was 23.8 points in the second week of league games. Class 4A has also seen its share of routs. Take the Plains League for example. The average margin of victory in the first two weeks is 39.5. These new leagues will remain in 2017 for the second year of the cycle before the conferences will again be changed in the waterfall format that snakes schools into leagues based on two-year Ratings Performance Index rankings, which are generated by a computer. Sometimes change is good, but maybe more geographical reasoning needs to be included in the league realignments. Consider this: At the start of the football game between home standing Legend and Poudre from Fort Collins on Oct. 13, there were 51 people in the visitors’ bleachers at Echo Park Stadium in Parker. RPI standings If you don’t understand how the RPI standings in football are compiled, there is a formula but most of the time it’s easier just to look up the standings at chsaanow.com/rpi In the seven 5A and 4A leagues, the league champions automatically gain a spot in the 16team playoffs with the other teams being selected via RPI.

why I love it and continue to play.

KEEPING SCORE WITH... HANNAH STANLEY Junior softball player hool ThunderRidge High Sc

Why do you participate in sports? I participate in sports mainly for my love of the game. However, the friendships and bonds I have made through the sport are a big factor in

Do you have any pre-competition superstitions or rituals? I always put my uniform on in the same order, and before an at-bat, I always put my left batting glove on first. What are your plans for after high school graduation? After I graduate high school, I hope to play softball in college and study medicine. “Keeping Score With…” is a Q&A with high school athletes in the south metro area. Email Colorado Community Media sports writer Jim Benton at jbenton @coloradocommunitymedia.com if you or someone you know would like to participate.

is that the Eagles run races together as a group. The team lived up to the prediction as they finished sixth at the league meet with 162 team points, just one point behind fifthplace Highlands Ranch. Peg Smith led the Eagles team to the finish line as she placed 23rd with a time of 20:30. She was followed across the line by the next four teammates who scored team points for the Eagles — Mia Henderson, 29th, Ramona Gress , 30th, Laurette Selleck, 39th and Madison Castro 41st. Smith’s time was only 43 seconds faster than Castro’s time

Canyon vs. #10 Grand Junction Central, 12:15 p.m. Class 4A #4 Wheat Ridge vs. #13 Pueblo Central, 10 a.m.; #5 Air Academy vs. #12 Elizabeth, 10 a.m.; #3 Valor Christian vs. #14

but there are still three weeks of action remaining and many changes will be forthcoming. Highlands Ranch standout transfers Leilah Vigil, the leading scorer for the Highlands Ranch girls basketball team the past two seasons, has transferred to Grandview High in Aurora. The junior will be playing with Grandview senior standout Michae-

of 21:13. Runyon said the boys team is made up of freshmen and sophomores who have been bumped up to varsity and are holding their own. “Unfortunately, we are a little short-handed today as the two runners who led us last week won’t run today so they can rest up and be ready for regionals,” he said. The boys team finished ninth with 188 points as the Eagles were grouped together at the finish line. Max Tenbraak was the first Heritage runner to finish the race as he placed 27th in the field of 77 runners with a time of 17:34. The other runners who scored team points for the Eagles were Marred Holt (31st), Simeon Ehm (36th), Cory Kennedy (38th) and Cole Van Vleet (56th).

Thomas Jefferson, 12:15 p.m. Class 3A #4 Brush vs. #13 Faith Christian, 10 a.m.; #7 The Academy vs. #10 Weld Central, 12:15 p.m.

la Onyenwere after the Colorado High School Activities Association deemed Vigil will have full eligibility since the transfer was viewed as a bona fide family move. Jim Benton is a sports writer for Colorado Community Media. He has been covering sports in the Denver area since 1968. He can be reached at jbenton@coloradocommunitymedia.com.

Cross country is a team sport as well as an individual sport. Each runner pushed hard to finish as high in the individual standings as possible because team scores are based on how runners place in the field. The first runner across the finish line earns one team point and the 10th runner earns 10 points. At the league meet, a team could enter up to seven runners but only the points from the first five finishers count for the team score. Mountain Vista won the girls team title with 27 points and Rock Canyon was second with 69 points. The order was reversed in the boys race as Rock Canyon won the team title with 32 points and Mountain Vista was second with 52 points.
