‘Duck Dynasty’ coming to Castle Rock Reality TV stars turn out to help Christian school By Rhonda Moore

rmoore@ourcoloradonews.com It will be “Duck Dynasty” central at the Douglas County Event Center when the Robertsons come to town. Phil and Willie Robertson, self-proclaimed “rednecks” and stars of the popular A&E television show “Duck Dynasty,” will be in Castle Rock May 19 as guests of The Rock Christian Academy. The Robertsons will share their stories of faith, family and work ethic during the event to raise money for the private school. The Robertsons receive hundreds of speaking invitations each year and are selective about the invitations they accept, said Michael Brumbaugh, assistant director of parent-teacher fellowship for The Rock Christian Academy. Brumbaugh got the “Duck Dynasty” education during weeks of lobbying for their visit to Castle Rock. Brumbaugh was introduced to the Robertsons during a family visit. “When my father-in-law was here visiting for Christmas, he introduced me to the show,” Brumbaugh said. “I watched it that night and I was just rolling. I thought it was great.” The “Duck Dynasty” family made its fortune with a patented duck call, and their reality show follows their lives in the Louisiana bayou as they run their family business and their backwoods homes. Brumbaugh does not know what pushed The Rock Christian Academy to the top of the list for the “Duck Dynasty” group, but plans to use proceeds from the event to help fund a 10,000-square-foot expan-

The Town of Castle Rock is ready to get out of the taxi business. Town council on April 16 approved a proposal from its transportation department to hand over the reins of its taxi service to Douglas County. Merging the services will make it easier for Castle Rock residents to take advantage of the free program, said Bob Watts, Castle Rock transportation planning manager. The town and county provide free cab rides to residents who qualify for the respective programs. The county’s program, funded through a federal grant, limits riders to those who need transportation to and from work, Watts said. The county estimates that about 80 percent of its transportation requests originate in Castle Rock. The town’s program, funded through its annual budget, is available to the elderly, the disabled, or anyone without access to a car. Qualified riders can get transportation for work, medical appointments and grocery shopping. Merging the two programs will create a single point of contact for residents who use the program, extend the hours of the Castle Rock program to match those of the county’s and reduce the amount of staff time the town spends on administering the program, Watts said. Many of the riders who use the taxi service use both programs and, on several occasions, confusion arises for users of the dual services, Watts said. Taxi continues on Page 12

When the Douglas County School District voucher program became stalled in a legal battle, the school wanted to find a way to help families afford to send their kids to the private Christian academy, he said. “When your heart believes in something as strongly as I believe in the school and you can see what it’s doing for kids and God’s presence, I said I’m going to keep calling until I get a yes,” Brumbaugh said. “The Dynasty continues on Page 12

Teen stage production isn’t child’s play They file onto the stage, in red-andwhite collared shirts, 10 young women and men intent on provoking indignation among the hundreds of sophomores in the audience. Their words overlap into layers, resounding, pulsing, reverberating: It is happening. It is around us. There is abuse. There is assault. We are victims. We can fight it … Feel the outrage in this room. Then: “If you are holding a card with the number five on it, please stand.” Across the auditorium, boys and girls slowly, unsurely, rise. One in five high school students reports being physically or sexually abused, or both, by a dating partner, students are told. “If you are standing,” a voice says from the stage, “you are giving our statistic a visual image. Standing does not necessarily depict your future.” But, if you don’t pay attention, it could. On a recent morning, the Encore Players, an acting troupe comprised of juniors and seniors from Chaparral High School in Parker, presented a 20-minute performance called “The Outrage” to sophomore students at another school. Its purpose is to educate about teen dating violence, a problem on the rise — to define in no uncertain terms the meaning of rape and sexual assault. “It’s such a powerful message to share with kids,” said Ann Carter, director of the Women’s Crisis and Family Outreach Center in Douglas County. It becomes even more powerful when teens themselves tell the story. Initially, there was a bit of awkwardness among the actors. “I was a little uncomfortable with it at first,” junior Alex Soto said. “It covers topics people don’t usually bring up. You don’t talk about things like this in everyday

conversation.” But then came the education piece: “I was pretty shocked,” senior Sam Larson said. “I had no idea the extent to which this is a problem.” And, finally, the realization they could make a difference: “A theater isn’t necessarily for entertainment purposes,” junior Anne Heart said. “It’s for getting a message across.” Their teacher, David Peterson, agreed. Besides dealing with an issue that could affect them, he said, the production “is a wonderful experience for students to learn about the social change that can come from an art form like theater. … Hearing that your performance has helped someone is a powerful experience.” “The Outrage” also demonstrates the power of community working together to create change, in this case an organization that works to prevent domestic violence and a school district. Carter, from the women’s center, had seen a YouTube clip of “The Outrage” and immediately thought it would be an effective educational tool. “Teen violence tends to get hidden — they think that’s just part of growing up, that it’s not a big deal,” Carter said. But it’s learned behavior, and that can carry into adulthood. So, the center bought the rights to the script about two years ago and approached Peterson about having his students perform it at a gala fundraiser. The performance touched several audience members so much they provided seed money to

produce it in high schools. The Douglas County School District agreed to pilot it this school year in three high schools. Next school year, the Encore Players will perform for sophomores in all of the district’s high schools, always accompanied by someone from the women’s center to answer questions and provide resources. “Relationship safety … is a topic we all value, and all our kids could benefit from hearing about it,” said Staci McCormack, the district’s student wellness coordinator. “Kids might not be in it (violence), but they are affected, they are impacted, because it is around them.” And because of technology, “our generation has a lot more diverse forms of dating violence,” junior Kirsten Brandes said. Texting. The Internet. Social media. They all can make it easier for abuse to happen. Lynn Adams from the women’s center told students at the performance the story of a 10th-grade girl who received 17 threatening texts, including one of a gun, from her ex-boyfriend because they broke up. “When things like that happen, it’s pretty serious,” she said. “It could potentially ruin your life.” The incidence of dating violence among teens is growing, according to the Centers for Disease Control. It reports 25 percent of teens say they are victims of dating violence, whether it be emotional, psychological, physical or sexual, and 54 percent have witnessed such violence among their peers. Carter wants teens to know unequivocally those relationships are not OK. “You need to have a respectful relationship where both parties have a voice, where both parties are empowered to make decisions to have the relationship go in the way they both want it to go.” In its 20 minutes, “The Outrage” covers a lot of ground. Woven among short scenes that depict a boyfriend’s physical abuse and how to get help are these eye-opening statements:

• One in four teenage girls in a relationship say they have gone further sexually than they wanted to because of pressure • Eighty percent of teens consider verbal abuse “a serious issue” for their age group • Fifty-four percent of parents say they have not talked to their child about dating violence • One in three teenagers say they know a friend or peer who has been hit, punched, kicked, slapped, strangled or physically hurt by his or her partner • Eight of 10 female survivors of rape know their rapist as a boyfriend, friend or casual acquaintance And then there’s this one: One woman is abused every nine seconds. One. Two. Three. Four. Five. Six. Seven. Eight. Nine. To the Encore members, the statistics on the page have become real. Brandes said: “They are people.” They line the stage, in their red-andwhite shirts, young faces with hopeful hearts and a message intended to shock into action. The words overlap. They resound. Pulse. Reverberate. They envelop the listening students. Education … Strength … Courage … This is the change. It is happening. It is around us. There is abuse. There is assault. We will stop it. We will fight it. Change the rage in this room.

Task force honors volunteers Douglas/Elbert group has nearly 200 who help

LOCAL GROCERS SUPPORT DOUGLAS/ELBERT TASK FORCE

By Rhonda Moore

rmoore@ourcoloradonews.com When the Douglas/Elbert Task Force honored its staff of volunteers, it did so by calling the outreach Douglas County’s greatest love story. And according to the task force’s longest-serving volunteer, it is a love story that began with a staff of three, who at one time pitched in $150 each just to keep the doors open. In 2012, those doors served 15,684 people, nearly half of whom were children, with more than $1 million in assistance, according to Suzanne Greene, executive director. The task force on April 25 hosted an appreciation luncheon for its volunteers, which that week included a list of 199 people. The task force estimates the value of its volunteers ranges between $364,800 and $414,600 in annual volunteer hours, said

The Douglas/Elbert Task Force showed its appreciation to its volunteers with a grocery gift card loaded with $5 to activate the card. As users continue to load money on it for shopping, the grocery stores will donate 5 percent of the amount spent to the task force. Participating stores include Safeway and all King Soopers outlets. For information on how to get a Douglas/Elbert Task Force grocery card, call Joe Roos, philanthropy director, at 720-648-5558. “We are not a community focused on plight, we’re a community focused on giving and caring,” Roos said. “The task force is really Douglas County’s greatest love story.”

Huydts lives in Franktown and makes the daily trek to Castle Rock to volunteer one to two hours, wherever she is assigned. Huydts was among the three people who 29 years ago opened the task force doors and dug into her pocket to

keep the task force running at a time when it was at risk of shutting down. She has worked in every part of the outreach, from client intake to the food bank to the thrift store. Recently honored as a Channel 7 Everyday Hero, Huydts volunteers among other organizations and came by her giving spirit through family example.

Castle Pines holds landscape contest District offers $3,600 in credits By Rhonda Moore

rmoore@ourcolorado news.com The Castle Pines North Metropolitan District is putting its money where its spout is when it comes to water conservation. The district announced its first xeriscape/WaterWise landscape contest, with $3,600 in water bill credits available to participating customers. The contest is an effort to promote and reward water conservation; reduce outdoor irrigation and monthly water bills; and encourage xeriscaped and WaterWise landscapes among its cus-

tomers, according to the district’s contest rules. The contest is open to district customers, who can enter one of three competition categories. The categories are for resident/homeowner amateur landscape; resident/ homeowner professional landscape; and homeowner association common areas landscape. The minimum landscaping for residential customers must include 400 square feet dedicated to xeriscape or WaterWise landscaping. HOA contestants must dedicate at least 25 percent of the irrigated common areas or a minimum of 5,000 square feet to xeriscape or WaterWise landscaping. WaterWise landscaping includes drought-tolerant

ground cover, shrubs, shade trees, ornamental grasses, cacti and succulents. The district also offers, as part of its 2013 rebate program, a 40-cent-per-squarefoot rebate per customer for removing Kentucky bluegrass. Contest participants in July must provide an entry form with photos. Judging takes place in August and the winners will be announced in September, according to the contest rules. Judging will be performed by the district’s caucus of master gardeners.

“I just love to volunteer and help people,” she said. “My mother was that way.” The task force provides aid to people who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless with services that include food and toiletries, housing and utility assistance, clothing and household items and emergency overnight lodging.

The notion that people in Douglas and Elbert counties might be at risk of homelessness was one that was easy to grasp for volunteer Dave Mittan. Mittan, president of FirstBank in Aurora, is a Parker resident who since 2002 has volunteered at the task force, including 10 years as the organization’s board chairman. When he began his search for a volunteer outreach, he chose the task force because it provides aid to families in need. Those families are reminiscent of his childhood experience growing up in poverty, he said. “We used to get in line for food, and I had to wear the same clothes to school every day,” Mittan said. “I wanted to be part of an organization that helps those people. I wanted something I was connected to. I went through it.” The task force honored Mittan at the luncheon, with an announcement that it is naming its conference room the David Mittan Conference Room.

State budget restores funds By Vic Vela

vvela@ourcoloradonews.com Next year’s state budget was signed by Gov. John Hickenlooper on April 29, a $20.5 billion plan that restores funding to many programs that had been cut during the recent recession. Hickenlooper signed the so-called “long bill” at a Capitol press event, where he expressed optimism in C o l o r a d o ’s economic direction, while also acknowledging the Report cloudier fiscal period that the state is emerging from. “We are enacting a budget in a unique time in our history where we are coming back from this incredible recession,” Hickenlooper said, with members of the Legislature’s Joint Budget Committee standing behind him. “Colorado’s economy is out-

Capitol

performing the nation’s economy and I think we are now ... able to catch up in a number of places.” Funding is not only being restored to areas of last year’s budget that were cut, it also puts more money into savings. Next year’s budget adds $80 million to the state’s General Fund reserve, a 1 percent savings increase from last year. Public schools will see a per-pupil funding increase of about $172 in next year’s budget — an increase that is tied to a tax hike associated with the School Finance Act, which voters still must approve once Hickenlooper signs the measure into law. There also will be more than $5 million added in financial aid for college students, and more than $100 million for higher education maintenance projects. And, state workers will receive a 2 percent pay increase, their first pay raises in years. Though the budget did receive some Republican support in the House, it did not garner a single Republican vote in the Senate.

School leaders mixed on block schedule Students like new format, teachers not as enthused By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com A Douglas County High School official says the block schedule adopted by many high schools in 2012-13 undermines the International Baccalaureate program and makes teachers’ jobs tougher. Almost a year into the new system, other Douglas County School District leaders said the verdict is still out, but that class sizes and budgets prevent them from considering options. “I see grades down,” said Steve Fleet, IB coordinator at Douglas County High School. “I see kids who decide it’s better to have an off-period than to take a challenging academic program. The general atmosphere shifts away from the focus on academics we used to have. “The regrettable thing is we have a

movement to encourage critical and creative thinking in the district, (but) the soil in which teachers are trying to plant that seed simply won’t let it grow.” Most students say they like the schedule’s 90-minute classes and off-periods. Those whose days end with an off-period also like leaving school at 12:30 instead of 2:50 p.m. Most teachers aren’t as enthusiastic. The new schedule required them to teach an additional section. Class sizes are smaller, but overall student load typically is larger. At Chaparral High School, 67 percent of students who responded to a school survey said they like the schedule, with only 31 percent of teachers agreeing. Forty-seven percent of the teachers said they don’t like the block format, and 25 percent were undecided. “We’ve had some major changes based on budgeting constraints over the last four years,” said Ron Peterson, Chaparral’s principal. “Honestly, there’s been some grumbling. It can become very draining if you

Schools earn green award By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews. com The Douglas County School District earned national recognition for saving more than $15 million through its 6-year-old sustainability program. The U.S. Department of Education chose DCSD and 13 others from among 15,000 nominated districts to receive a Green Ribbon Schools District Sustainability Award. The award recognizes the program for reducing environmental impact, saving money, improving health and wellness, and providing education. DCSD Sustainability Manager Lee Smit gives all credit to the students who run the in-school projects. “We have over 7,000 kids across the district running the programs in their schools,” he said. “In most school districts, the utility budget has to go up every year. Ours has actually gone down three years in a row.” Launched as a cost-savings program, the effort has evolved into an educational experience with a Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) component. Smit, assigned to cut the district’s utility costs, initially thought school staff members would carry out his directives. “When I first started, a lot of the leadership didn’t think the kids would care,” Smit said. “I started with one group of high-schoolers. They saved $24,000 in six months. They came in

don’t put your energy and efforts in the right places.” Both students and teachers who responded to Peterson’s survey said they like not having the same class every day, and believe they accomplish more during the longer class periods. DCSD Assistant Superintendent of Secondary Education Dan McMinimee said the district’s leaving it to the principals to find what works best for their schools. “We have a site-based decision-making process,” he said. “My expectation is each of their principals is doing a good job of listening to their community, while staying within budget parameters.” Informal feedback from students and staff at Rock Canyon and Highlands Ranch high schools is similar to that at Chaparral. “One of the reasons we didn’t do a survey is we don’t have the funding” to return to the old schedule, said Rock Canyon Principal Andy Abner. “It’s not as though we have an option on the table. But through anecdotal information, when you talk to

Bill on executive sessions fizzles Residents who question school board backed legislation By Jane Reuter

Photo courtesy of the National Wildlife Federation on their days off, taught the teachers and totally ran the program.” Smit knew he was on to something. “With over 6.8 million square feet of buildings, one of me isn’t enough,” he said. “Getting the kids involved was the key.” In each school, program participants first conducted a habit audit. “First is lighting,” Smit said. “Lighting is the biggest energy draw in most schools. So let’s make sure all the lights are turned off when we don’t need them. Computers need to be either off or in sleep mode. Simple things like that.” Students calculate energy savings, considering every facet from how often light bulbs are changed to salaries of custodial staff. “You can walk through our schools now and it’s so different from when I started,” Smit said. “I’d see 20 empty rooms, and 15 to 20 would have lights on. Now I’ll find one or two.” Some of the saved money

is dedicated back to each school, often for re-investment in the program. The program so intrigued former Ponderosa High School student Suzanne Warren that she majored in energy management practices at CU-Boulder. Upon her May graduation, she’ll step into the job of energy solutions engineer at Johnson Controls, a Fortune 500 company with offices in Denver. Warren helped Smit audit about 20 DCSD schools during her junior year. “We learned how easy it was to just turn off a light and save all this energy,” she said. “We ended up saving our school over $16,000 over four months with things that were so simple. It was a really great way to see how small actions can make a huge difference. “Lee’s program and the work I did at Ponderosa was 100 percent the launching pad to where I am today. If I hadn’t learned about energy efficiency, I would have never gone down this path.”

students, they like the free time. It’s more of a college feel for them. It’s a tricky balance, but I think Rock Canyon students in general handle that very appropriately and seriously. “When you speak with teachers, it’s difficult because it’s an increased workload. What I’ve been committed to is trying to hire as many staff members as the budget will permit in order to ease the burden on any one teacher.” If a schedule change ever occurs, it would be based on input from staff, students and community, Abner said. “If students are realizing a benefit, and teachers are having a difficult time with it, maybe there’s something … that could be somewhere in the middle,” he said. Highlands Ranch High School Principal Jerry Goings said his staff still is transitioning to the block schedule. “Along with other changes within the district, staff is pretty much overwhelmed with it,” he said. “It still has definite positive results in terms of class size. We’re working through it.”

To Douglas County School Board President John Carson, the executive sessions bill that died at the state Capitol April 24 was “the usual nonsense from the AFT (American Federation of Teachers).” To the bill’s supporters, it was a bid for greater transparency, triggered by questionable school board conduct. The AFT is the parent organization of the local teachers’ union, the DougCarson las County Federation. The original bill, introduced by two Adams County Democrats, state Rep. Cherylin Peniston and state Sen. Mary Hodge, called for recording of all closed-door sessions of elected local-government bodies. That would have included issues classified as attorney-client privilege, which now are exempt from the recording requirement. Citizens with concerns about a closeddoor meeting could then have asked a judge to review the recording. An amended version of the bill, which would only have required governing agencies to document the amount of executive-session time spent on specific issues, also failed. The Colorado Municipal League and other groups opposed the bill because of its applicability to all elected local government entities. “This is something that would put a little more sunshine in the Sunshine Law and help keep these people honest,” said Cindy Barnard, a plaintiff in the lawsuit against the Douglas County School District’s voucher program who testified in

support of the bill. “What I am seeing in Douglas County concerns me.” Carson says there was no need for any changes, and believes the teachers’ union — whose collective bargaining agreement with DSCD expired in June 2012 — pushed for the bill. The Douglas County Federation also filed suits against DCSD in February on issues related to teacher hiring and a sick-leave bank; the district has moved for dismissal of the suits. “When you’re reforming a school district and you’re taking money away from the union, they’re going to get angry,” Carson said. “That’s really the root of all this. “I think they’ll probably give up once we win the next round of board elections. “No one has ever identified a single problem with the way we conduct our executive sessions and they won’t because we conduct them in compliance with the law and our legal counsel advises us on that.” Minutes on the Douglas County School District’s website show the length of executive sessions increased substantially during recent years, from an average of 20 minutes to more than an hour and a half. In April, the board cut the time spent in executive session to about an hour and 10 minutes. Carson said legal complexities surrounding the voucher lawsuit and other issues necessitate the private discussions. AFT President Brenda Smith said a varied group of stakeholders supported the bill. Susan Meek, formerly a DCSD spokeswoman and now vice president of the grassroots Strong Schools Coalition, also testified in support of the bill. Barnard, president of Taxpayers for Public Education, and Meek said their organizations are not affiliated with or supported by the teachers’ union. “I’ve received zero money from the teachers’ union,” Barnard said. “I am not the AFT. I’m a concerned Douglas County Republican.”

Along with Scott Murphy, Littleton superintendent of schools, and Eric Flor, assistant superintendent for Cherry Creek Schools, Fagen offered an overview of how schools hope to engage business and industry as future partners. Strong partnerships between schools and business innovators may be the key to developing a winning curriculum — a curriculum that’s rich

She sees a strong connection between academia and the coming economy. Schools are now looking to the business community and asking it to help define what the future workforce should look like. So, what it is kids need to know to be successful in their lifetime? “We can’t even predict all the jobs that will exist when they graduate, but

we can predict the kind of skills they’ll need to be successful, no matter what those jobs are,” said Fagen. And the Douglas County School District has been reaching out to some of the biggest names on the planet. “Nike, for example, wants people who `obliterate’ boundaries, are risktakers, are smart, passionate curious people, rebels, original thinking,” Fagen said. “So just as the industrial revolution paid attention to what it was the assembly-line mode needed, we want to pay attention to what our business partners want in our students.” “We have a vested interest in education with relationship to the business community,” D’Ambrosia said. “It’s one of the driving forces for bringing jobs here to the south metro Denver area.”

Dual investigations clear undersheriff Passerby reported dispute at Highlands Ranch home By Ryan Boldrey

rboldrey@ourcoloradonews.com An incident involving Douglas County Undersheriff Tony Spurlock, which prompted separate investigations by the Douglas County and Jefferson County sheriff’s offices, has resulted in the finding of no criminal wrongdoing by the undersheriff. Spurlock, a Republican candidate for Douglas County sheriff in 2014, was being investigated on a report from a passerby that a domestic dispute involving the undersheriff had taken place April 10 inside a Highlands Ranch home. As Douglas County deputies found

no evidence of criminal conduct in their initial investigation, Spurlock was not placed on administrative leave while Jefferson County conducted an independent investigation at Sheriff David Weaver’s request. The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office completed its investigation April 25 and found that Spurlock had not violated any laws and the Douglas Spurlock County Sheriff’s Office was also not in violation of standard operating procedures. Weaver sated in a news release that the reason for conducting both an internal and external investigation was

to ensure the trust of the people of Douglas County. “As public servant employees, we accept that we are under more scrutiny and we embrace this because of the authority with which the public has entrusted our profession,” he said. “This incident has now been thoroughly investigated by two law enforcement agencies, both of which found no criminal or procedural wrongdoing.” Spurlock, who chaired the state’s Domestic Violence Offender Treatment Board under Gov. Bill Owens in 2001, added that both agencies were professional and thorough in their investigations. “My belief in the justice system has never wavered and stands strong today,” he said.

Students, seniors share life experiences Wind Crest, elementary join forces for learning By Ryan Boldrey

rboldrey@ourcoloradonews. com The partnership between Wind Crest Retirement Community and Eldorado Elementary School in Highlands Ranch has been one that’s spanned the ages. While the partnership itself has only been around for six years, each day, at least one of 22 Wind Crest residents can be seen volunteering their time at the school, helping out teachers, tutoring students or reading to children. The kids, in appreciation, host luncheons for the volunteers twice a year and also raise money through bake sales to help pay for the Wind Crest shuttle to bring over seniors who no longer drive. For the past four school years, students have also participated in a living biography project in which the entire sixth-grade class visits Wind Crest to interview residents about where they were raised and what their lives have been like. Each of the students is assigned to two seniors as part of the project, and after the day is done, writes up reports about their elders and shares copies of what they wrote.

Wind Crest resident Steve Walters is interviewed by Eldorado Elementary School sixth-graders as part of the school’s class project in which 90 students visited the retirement community to interview 30 residents about their lives. Courtesy photo “They were very nice and courteous and smiled a lot,” Steve Walters, 90, said of a recent visit. “They had their questions all written down, and every time I answered one, they quickly wrote down what I said. I told them

some of what I remembered from being a young man and suggested they consider going into the health-care field.” Walters, a former hospital administrator from Texas, said he hopes his message sunk in with

the kids, as there is a continuously growing need for nurses and doctors. “It’s not a field that is going to fill up like other fields,” he said. “People are living a lot longer these days and there are a lot

more folks who are old and beat up like me.” As for the project, Walters said, it was nice to see the kids and it gives them a chance to talk to the seniors and see how they behave. “You think it’s going to be boring at first because they are so much older and you don’t think you are going to have anything in common,” said Eldorado sixthgrader Rachel Erickson, whose grandmother also lives at Wind Crest. “But the stuff that they shared really had an effect on me. It’s amazing how much they could tell us.” Rachel said she received advice on how to deal with loss as well as what an enriching experience college can be, and said the overall experience has helped make her relationship with her grandmother a stronger one. Senio “The seniors have such amaz- A ing life stories, and the studentsfor se have a lot of love and respect fortools them. It’s really a joyful time,”sary said Rachel’s teacher, Camille Mc-happ Cullough, adding that the volun-7:30 teer program is also an eye-open-the L er for the kids. 1007 “The kids are always so amazedTree, at how interesting their lives areto pr and how active they still are,” shesafeg said. tify a “They start to see them as realcomm people that can help them, and itmem really helps them grow.” Br

A boy and his mower make the big time Area’s largest residential mowing service turns 30 By Ryan Boldrey

rboldrey@ourcoloradonews.com Thirty years ago, Johnny Erbert was a 12-year-old boy with a dream of owning a remote-control car. Little did he know that by finding the means to fulfill that dream, he would set a lifelong career in motion. Raised by parents who “considered anything above and beyond the basics to be extravagant,” he was instilled with the understanding early on that if he wanted something, he would have to work for it. “I thought, `I’m 12 years old and I can’t get a job, but I think I can mow lawns,’” Erbert recalled. “It started with the neighbors, going around the block as most kids do.” It wasn’t long before Johnny started thinking that it would be nice if he could travel a little farther from home and pick up more jobs, and he asked for his father’s assistance in building a sidehack — a thirdwheel contraption — for his bike so he could haul his mower on an attached trailer, and place the gasoline and trimmer in the sidehack. Word spread quickly around Johnny’s Lakewood neighborhood, and business

started to boom. No longer could he do all the lawns himself, and he began to hire friends to help out. He made enough money that by age 14 he purchased his first Toyota pickup and hired an older friend to do the driving, while hauling multiple mowers. Fast-forward to 2013, and Erbert runs the largest residential lawn-mowing service in the Denver metro area, servicing all of Douglas County, most of Jefferson and Arapahoe counties and recently adding some of the newer suburbs to the northeast. Based out of a garage and office on Titan Park Circle in unincorporated Douglas County, Erbert has a staff of 40 working for him that attends to thousands of lawns per week, some of which he was cutting as a 12-year-old boy. There was a time, though, after receiving a computer degree from Metro State in 1994, that Erbert almost put his mower away. Yet he found working in an office so incredibly boring, he instead decided to get even more serious about what he already knew he could be successful at. “I like the grass and I like being outside,” he said, “but almost even more, it’s the people. I love our customers and I love our team, I love cultivating the family atmosphere that we have here. “We are kind of weird and wacky and like

Those schools didn’t make the 2013 national list, and also weren’t ranked on U.S. News’ state-by-state breakdown of best schools. Rock Canyon Principal Andy Abner believes the vital statistic relates to the performance of the school’s least advantaged students — minority students and those receiving free or reduced lunch. Those children are a relatively small percentage of the student body in an affluent, 92 percent Caucasian county, but part of U.S. News’ ranking hinges on whether their performance matches the state average.

Vehicles keyed in Ranch

Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to a residence in the 3200 block of Astorbrook Way on April 12 for a report of a Ford F150 that had been keyed overnight while sitting in the resident’s driveway. Further investigation showed that three other vehicles were damaged in a similar fashion on the street and one vehicle on Astorbrook Drive was also keyed. There are no suspects and the case was deactivated due to no leads.

Fire set at Valor Christian

Douglas County sheriff’s deputies assisted at a fire shortly after 8:30 p.m. on e.” April 13 at Valor Christian andHigh School in Highlands visitRanch, and observed a trash can fully engulfed in flames near one of the dugouts at

the softball field. Fire personnel put out the fire and eliminated the hot spots in the area while deputies took note of multiple derogatory messages, written on the dugout walls in chalk, which were pro-Satan and anti-Valor in nature. There are no leads in the case.

Job sites vandalized

Three reports of criminal mischief or theft materialized from separate Douglas County job sites from April 13-22. A front-end loader in the 9300 block of Blake Street in Highlands Ranch, adjacent to Town Center North, had its front grill smashed in and front window and headlights smashed, causing damage exceeding $1,000. Three industrial ladders, valued at $750 total, were reported stolen over the weekend of April 13-15 from inside a secured job site in the 2300 block of Primo Road in Highlands Ranch. Also, a condenser for an air conditioning unit, valued at $1,000, was stolen from a poorly secured job site in the 200 block of Max Drive in Castle Pines overnight April 21.

Golf clubs stolen

Two reports of golf clubs stolen from residential properties were made in Highlands Ranch, with one coming from an apartment complex in the 400 block of West Burgundy Street on April 13 and the other from a condo unit in the 9300 block of Loggia Street on April 14. In one incident the clubs were taken from a garage and the other, from a storage unit.

egories. “At the same time, it’s our smallest population of students,” he said. “I would say it’s less than 5 percent. “In my opinion, Rock Canyon did not decline from one year to the next. Our ACT scores actually went up. Our AP (Advanced Placement) numbers went up.” Goings said HRHS statistics are similar, with record numbers of students taking and passing AP tests, high state testing scores and other reliable indicators of high performance. “We’ve been on both U.S. News and Newsweek’s list multiple years and multiple back-to-back years because we’ve always held strong AP scores and AP participation,” he said. “And we’ve always done well on our state testing.” Douglas County School Board President John Carson said the district analyzed its

Pot Continued from Page 1

regulatory model for the new recreational pot industry passed a legislative committee. The effort — if it ever gets off the ground — would ask voters to repeal Amendment 64, if they fail to support the tax rates tied to retail marijuana purchases. However, it remains to be seen whether the repeal effort has any legs, or if it’s dead on arrival in either legislative chamber. Repeal effort rumblings led to a tense April 26 press conference outside the Capitol, where Amendment 64 proponents clashed with an advocacy group that seeks to restrict access to marijuana in the state. Later that day, House lawmakers approved preliminary passage of House Bill 1317, an omnibus bill that puts in place Amendment 64’s regulatory framework. And, earlier in the week, a House committee voted to tack on a controversial driving-stoned standard to House Bill 1317 — one day after a Senate committee killed legislation that sought to do the same thing. An early draft of the repeal effort asks voters to repeal last November’s initiative that legalized recreational marijuana use in the state, if they reject the tax model tied to Amendment 64 implementation. That tax framework is in the form of House Bill 1318, which in its original form asks voters to approve a model where retail pot would be subject to an excise tax and a separate retail tax of up to 15 percent each. That’s in addition to a standard 2.9 percent state sales tax and whatever other taxes municipalities that allow retail pot sales may tack on. Also, the bill was recently amended to allow municipalities to receive a 15 percent “share back” of the retail sales taxes collected by the state, up from the 10 percent that was originally included in the bill. Amendment 64 proponents are

own data. “We went through the actual objective criteria, which was reading, math and college proficiency,” he said. “When you use those numbers, every one of our high schools would be higher than most of the schools that are on that list. “It’s a different rating system than was used in the past, and it appears to be motivated by politics in some way — injecting race and economics into the formula.” U.S. News said that about 40 percent of the schools on last year’s list didn’t make the 2013 list. It cites changes in relative performance on state tests, including performance of least advantaged students, and changes in performance on college-level work among possible reasons schools fell off the top ranking.

furious at the repeal effort — which had not been introduced in any form of legislation as of April 26. Representatives of anti-marijuana group Smart Colorado denied they they’re the driving force behind the repeal push, but acknowledged that they have been a part of the process. Spokeswoman Diane Carlson said that if money isn’t provided to fund regulatory costs, “then (Amendment) 64 should not be implemented.”

Tax rates spark debate

As of last week, it was unknown which specific lawmakers would join in crafting a repeal measure, which probably would come in the form of a joint Senate and House resolution. Rep. Frank McNulty, R-Highlands Ranch, said he “wouldn’t have a problem” with asking for an Amendment 64 repeal if the voters don’t approve the taxes tied to its regulation. “There is a strong concern that if the tax doesn’t pass, then families and small businesses are going to be saddled with the cost of implementing legalized pot,” McNulty told Colorado Community Media. “I don’t think that’s right.” Some Republicans have argued that the proposed 15 percent excise and retail sales taxes might be too high for voters’ liking. And, even if voters OK the taxes, the rates could have unintended consequences. “I would rather us do something prudent out of the gate to not create that stronger black market,” said Rep. Kevin Priola, R-Henderson, during an April 25 House Finance Committee hearing on House Bill 1318. But those who support the 15 percent rate argue that there’s just no telling how much it’s going to cost to regulate the new industry, and that it’s better to ask for a higher tax rate now, and then possibly adjust to a lower rate down the road. Still, Rep. Jonathan Singer, DLongmont, the sponsor of House Bill 1318, said he is “willing to talk about different (tax) models that might work better.” Singer said that’s a lot better than seeking a repeal, which not only would do away with the

retail marijuana industry, but also would strip other popular aspects of Amendment 64, such as decriminalization for small-time pot-related offenses. “The voters went out there, they got the signatures, they got this on the ballot,” Singer told Colorado Community Media. “So, for the state legislature to turn around a year later and say, `Let’s do a mulligan,’ ... apart from looking bad, it takes so little credence for what the voters actually did in 2012.” Singer’s bill passed the Finance Committee. The bill was expected to be voted on by the entire House this week.

Driving limit returns

The two bills that seek to put in place regulations for recreational marijuana — House Bill 1317 and Senate Bill 283 — passed separate committees last week. One of the more contentious areas of House Bill 1317 is a proposed head start that existing medical marijuana dispensaries would have in entering into the new retail pot market. Medical marijuana licensees would be allowed to apply for retail licenses on Oct. 1, while everyone else must wait until Jan. 1, 2014. Some Republicans argued that allowing existing dispensaries to get a jump on other businesses would give them an unfair advantage over pot shops just entering the market. But Rep. Dan Pabon, D-Denver, the bill’s sponsor, said there needs to be some easing into the market to help regulators deal with the new industry. Also, a key amendment was added to Pabon’s bill at an April 25 hearing, which would set a blood standard for being too stoned to drive. The effort had failed previously, after concerns were raised that the standard would unfairly affect medical marijuana patients, and that it would lead to police enforcement issues about blood sampling. The driving-stoned amendment still must survive the Senate, where the effort has died before.

opinions / yours and ours

Turning the gun debate to mental illness The 2012 mass shootings at the Aurora movie theater and at Sandy Hook Elementary School sparked discussion of the role mental illness may have played in the tragedies. What can be done to improve treatment for the mentally ill? How can we make sure those whose illness manifests itself in violent tendencies don’t have access to guns? That debate was quickly overshadowed by gun-control measures in Congress and in state legislatures that frequently became arguments over the Second Amendment. In Colorado, the 2013 legislative session, now less than a week from its scheduled end, will be remembered most for Democrats pushing through several gun-control bills to the outrage of Republicans. But the mental illness aspect hasn’t gone away. We were reminded of this by last

our view week’s scare in Littleton in which a policeissued safety alert cautioned that a man with access to a semiautomatic rifle had, weeks earlier, made threats to shoot people at the local hospital and at a big-box store. The 24-year-old Highlands Ranch man had spent more than two weeks in the same hospital he threatened after being admitted on a mandatory hold for having homicidal or suicidal thoughts. We know these details only because the safety alert inadvertently, police say, made its way into the hands of the public, largely because of various media reports. The alert, issued April 25, had been intended just for

question of the week

After recent news events, how safe do you feel? Colorado Community Media surveyed four people at random to determine whether

recent national tragedies have impacted their thoughts on personal safety.

“I feel perfectly safe, but I’m kind of a red-blooded American. Unfortunately, with the Boston bombings, when it’s people in U.S., it’s difficult to pre-emptively stop those. We can’t get everything.” — Lee Nordhold, Denver

“I feel safe. Yesterday, I heard the five surviving presidents speak and that made me feel safe. It seemed like they are all on the same page, which made me feel good.” — Marguerite Langstaff, Littleton

“I just came back from Boston, and seeing the state of readiness and so many different authorities that got together to make sure security was buttoned up made me feel safe.” — Kevin Humes, Aurora

“We’ve gone through Columbine and the Aurora theater shooting, but I don’t feel like I’m in danger when I go out or anything. There are always going to be crazy wackos out there.” — Tommy Weber, Littleton

Heart and soul of a dachshund Are you in a bad mood? Take one dachshund and call me in the morning. It’s impossible to look at a real dachshund or a photograph of one and not feel better. Go ahead. Google “dachshund” and you will see what I mean. They weren’t designed, yes designed, to lift your spirits. They were designed to track badgers. I suppose a standard-sized dachshund would stand a chance, but a small standard, like Smitty, or a miniature, would be torn to shreds. I think Smitty would have a 50-50 chance of whipping a box of Wheat Thins. If you’re planning to buy or adopt a dachshund, do your research first. Some of them can be nippy, and some of them will only focus on one member of the family. Smitty is here in the room with me, so I have to be careful about what I say. I will sneak in a subliminal message. Dachshunds are German-engineered, the word “dachshund” means “badger hound,” (they are very, very funny looking), and they like to burrow under blankets. Don’t go calling them wiener dogs around me. Hardy har har. How would you like to be called “crab man” or “crab woman” just because you resembled one? Or “chameleon boy” just because you changed colors now and then? You wouldn’t. If you look into the eyes of a dachshund, you are looking into the heart and soul of life. I know I tumbled overboard the first time I saw Smitty’s cognac-colored eyes. He begged to be adored and I lost control, the way a fool would do. I have a good friend who has a dog that doesn’t look like a dog. She sends pictures and I have nightmares. It weighs 124 pounds. That’s 8 pounds more than Jennifer, my girlfriend, weighs. And it’s 108 pounds more than Smitty weighs. Think about it. The amount of food. The amount of poop. I want a lap dog, not Smokey the

Bear. Another good friend just went through a nasty divorce, and custody of the dog was big. I actually think there was more contention over Scrapple than there was over the children. Dogs will do that to you. It’s been said over and over that dogs don’t know or care if you have had a bad day. They are here to make your day better no matter what. I am on my third dachshund. My childhood dachshund, Hexe, was an antidote for just about everything from the anxieties of growing up, to the Wrath of Shirley. My mother made some days very difficult. If you know what an anal retentive is, mom was varsity, first team, All American, Hall of Fame. She lettered all four years that I was in high school. Hexe snuggled. Shirley scolded. Hexe snuggled. No matter what anyone says, no one is going to give you unconditional love. Something, some thing, will invariably rub your unconditional lover the wrong way. Just because you drink salad dressing out of the bottle doesn’t make you a bad person. Just because you sing “Moon River” in a falsetto with a spoon on your nose doesn’t make you a bad person. Smitty wouldn’t care one way or another. He is here to dispense love. That’s his assignment. Smith continues on Page 9

the people deemed most affected, such as the hospital, the man’s relatives and his former employer. It was distributed as “a precautionary measure and a courtesy,” Littleton police said, and the man had not been charged with a crime. A day after the bulletin was issued, the man checked himself into a hospital seeking treatment and was not considered a threat, authorities said. Media organizations and the public were given a peek behind the curtain at something that surely happens more often than we would like to think. Because of privacy laws, neither the media nor the public are privy to much of what happens before someone who is mentally ill commits a crime. Let’s be clear: The vast majority of mentally ill people do not commit crimes, and

may actually be more prone to being victimized, experts say. But some individuals with certain types of mental illness are driven to hurt people. And they should not have legal access to guns. We have no way of knowing whether the subject of last week’s safety alert actually planned to hurt anyone or whether he is even mentally ill. But the mere notion of someone with bad intentions and access to a firearm fuels thoughts of another tragedy. What can be done? How can public safety best be protected without trampling on an individual’s rights? There are lawmakers in Congress and in the Colorado General Assembly having this discussion. We hope they will put the same passion into these talks that we saw in earlier gun-control debates, sans the partisan politics.

Rewrite of election law is a looming train wreck Following a secret, months-long process and without any input from my office, voters, or Republican legislators, Democrats rammed through legislation that fundamentally changes how we run our elections. Unfortunately, this election-law rewrite will lead to disaster. To begin, the bill forces Colorado into election policy that performs worse than our current system. The new bill mandates mail ballots for every voter and Election Day registration. Currently, Colorado ranks third best in voter turnout nationwide — one of the few states that increased turnout in this last election. Colorado outperforms every all-mail-ballot state in the country. And we outperform six of the eight Election Day registration states. But even if you like the policy, this bill is a rush to failure. Some may remember Denver voters waiting in line for hours in 2006. Denver’s own analysis blamed much of the failure on vote centers and the rushed development of an Internet-only poll book. That analysis criticized the short time frame — eight months — to deploy the system. By contrast, this bill’s unrealistic 100-day timeline will result in a sloppy, untested system that puts our voters at risk. Other states attempting this project have allowed themselves anywhere from 13 months to two years. Additionally, the bill bans neighborhood polling places in exchange for scattered, big-box voting clearinghouses. By rushing development and mandating these clearinghouses, the legislature is repeating every mistake that led to voters waiting in line for hours in Denver in 2006. Even if implementation goes smoothly,

Election Day registration still opens the door to fraud. Because Colorado has weak identification requirements — an easily forged utility bill is enough to vote — cheaters will be able to vote twice using different names. These worries aren’t theoretical. This last election, El Paso County caught a person who registered five times using false information. County officials caught him, but only because they had 29 days before the election to investigate the registration fraud. Under an Election Day registration scheme, this person would have been able to vote several times. Also in 2012, Colorado saw instances of people from other states trying to illegally vote in our battleground state. And in 2004 the city of Milwaukee saw over 4,000 more votes than registered voters. The resulting 68-page Milwaukee police report targeted Wisconsin’s Election Day voter registration as the problem. And finally, mandatory mail ballots remove choice and open the door to voter intimidation. Despite best efforts by all political parties and county registrars, about 1 million Coloradans reject voting by mail, and instead vote in person. In fact, Gessler continues on Page 9

We’re not in Kansas, school board s

As a 27-year-plus resident of Douglas County, I can remember vic-being excited and proud to be asvidu-sociated with the Douglas County s areSchool District and its board. d notMy wife and I shepherded four children through Douglas County’s etherschool system, and have an overactu-whelmingly positive story about er hethe district’s school system. on of In 1995, I and a cadre of parents ess toembarked on an immense chalgedy. lenge with DCSD — we initiated a safe-charter school, one of the district’s g onfirst. As we built our needed partnernd ining relationships with the district g thisstaff, the board, the League of sameCharter Schools and the state, ear-we found more than a willing tisanaudience. We found that we were welcomed as a force for making a great education program even stronger. We were encouraged, supported, advised without hesitation, particularly by the district staff and board members. The model of education we were introducing to the District was Montessori — different from, but

supported and babied along the way by every department, and were welcomed with open arms by our school board. Today, 16 years later, DCS Montessori proudly stands beside our partner schools in the county, providing quality education for in-district children as well as open-enrolled students. Now the rub. What a sad difference to read about, and hear the stories of, a dramatic shift in that partnering spirit, especially shown by a majority of our present board members. The politicized character of the discussion about school choice that surrounds the debate about the proposed voucher program is disturbing, not because there’s anything wrong with the idea, but because of the polarized and polemic discourse. From here, this looks like a group of people who have an ideological agenda and are intent on hammering it into place with little or no regard for real listening and hearing of reasoned debate. The ads bashing the AFL-CIO, the

complementary to, “traditional” models of educating. We were not seen as a threat of any kind, but as a worthwhile expansion of educational choice. In fact, during our consultations with DCSD staff, we were enjoined to make sure we consulted the district teachers — they were a valuable constituency. We viewed this as a challenge, because we were to be hiring certified Montessori instructors who are not represented by any union, so we wondered how we would be received. We were relieved and delighted at the warm, supportive welcome, and got lasting counsel from them. After an eventful and sometimes grueling two-year “project,” we had an approved charter. We were

fraud charges because, as one witness said: “Once everyone gets a mail ballot in their mailbox, in some communities like mine, the bad guys will be there to intimidate them. They don’t get to say, `I don’t get a mail ballot. I go to the polls.’” We should take time to get it right, because we can fix many problems. But the Democratic majority refuses to compromise. We should take the time to get it right. Photo identification and proof of citizenship for late registrations dramati-

cally reduce the chances for fraud, but Democrats refuse to even consider that. And Colorado should allow people the option to refuse a mail ballot and vote in person. From the start, Democrats have frozen out anyone who might disagree with them, refusing common-sense compromises. Colorado voters deserve better.

Affordable Cremation Options

The planning experts at Olinger Andrews Caldwell Gibson Chapel understand how personal your memorial choices can be. If you have decided on cremation, we provide many planning options so you can ensure your final wishes will be respectfully carried out, and loved ones will have the chance to say goodbye. We offer endless service options – from direct cremation or a traditional funeral to a completely customized Celebration of Life gathering.

ACLU, the teachers, and anyone else who happens to think that the free expression of religion is different from a subsidized expression of religion are repulsive tactics. To those who say, “well the other side is doing it too, and worse,” I say there doesn’t have to be sides — my experience is that reasoned people can find a solution for improving our school choices without taking sides — just engaging in discourse. And I use my chartering experience as proof of that premise. The present atmosphere in DCSD reminds me of the debates that are happening in school districts one state to our east — not a pretty sight. So, my message to the board members at issue here: “We’re not in Kansas, Toto.” Please reclaim and regenerate that quality of creativity, listening and partnering that has for so long characterized our district’s leadership of our district. Randy Nicholas is a resident of Highlands Ranch.

Derby evening proves a winner Castle Rock chamber bestows 2013 awards By Rhonda Moore

rmoore@ourcoloradonews.com The night at the races was a hit for members and guests at the Castle Rock Chamber of Commerce Kentucky Derby-themed awards banquet. Wide-brimmed hats and Derby attire marked the April 25 event, where attendees helped raise more than $5,000 for chamber programs. The biggest winner of the night

The table hosted by the law firm Folkestad Fazekas Barrick & Patoile won the first-place award for best table decoration at the Castle Rock Chamber of Commerce awards banquet.

was local businessman Rick Stucy, who was named the chamber’s 2013 Businessperson of the Year. Stucy is owner of Stucy Realty, chairman of the downtown development authority and a longtime chamber member, who spearheaded construction of the Rink at the Rock, Castle Rock’s outdoor ice rink. He won the chamber’s top award of the evening after being nominated with Wes King, president of FirstBank of Douglas County, and John Manka, owner of 1Stop Tire & Auto. “This award really is special because (Castle Rock chamber members) gave it,” Stucy said. “It’s Castle Rock and you mean the world to me.” The other awards of the night included the Ping Lee Jung Volunteer of the Year award, which went to Lisa Frizell of the Douglas County assessor’s office; the Ambassador of the Year award, which went to Sue Turner of Proforma Image Branding; and the Citizen of the Year award, which went to Manka. The chamber did not go away empty-handed, with more than $4,800 raised in its live auction. Auctioneer John Anderson, commander with the Castle Rock Police Department, prompted bidders to raise $1,500 for an interactive training experience at the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office training facility; $675 for a chance to light the star at Castle Rock’s holiday Starlighting; $700 for dinner for four, served by the firefighters with the Castle Rock Fire Department; and $1,950 for

Highlands Ranch author Kristen DeBeer, right, wrote a children’s book for her son Jack, left, now 12, called “I Believe in You.” Jack suffers from ADHD and dyslexia, which inspired DeBeer to write the book, as she had trouble finding books that would be helpful to young people who learn differently.

Children’s book sends message to son Highlands Ranch mom writes to boost learning-disabled By Ryan Boldrey

‘I was surprised my mother had written a book and that it was about me. It’s very special to me ... It kind of relieves you of your pain.’ Jack DeBeer

rboldrey@ourcoloradonews.com Kristen DeBeer believes in her son so much that when she couldn’t find a book to speak to him about his learning disabilities, she wrote her own, spelling out her message of belief loud and clear. Jack, a 12-year-old sixth-grader at Renaissance Expeditionary Magnet School in Castle Rock, was diagnosed with ADHD in first grade and dyslexia three years later. “When he was first diagnosed, we were really looking for something to kind of help him understand how he was different,” DeBeer said. “There are books for kids that are about `I have ADHD, what does that mean?’ but as time wore on, probably about fourth grade when he was diagnosed for dyslexia, that’s when it became more apparent that his self-esteem was being affected because he was different. “He was getting a lot of feedback at school that he wasn’t trying hard enough and yet we knew he was trying really hard. … There wasn’t a book that I could find that had that social and emotional aspect we

were looking for.” So, in 2010 DeBeer wrote the manuscript for “I Believe in You: A Mother’s Message to Her Son with Learning Differences.” She met an illustrator, Elizabeth Santy, who worked at Knippenberg Patterson and Associates — a Denver clinic that specializes in the treatment of ADHD and dyslexia — and two years later she had a published book. Jack had no idea his mother had been writing the book and she waited to surprise him with it until after it was completely put together and published. “I was surprised my mother had written a book and that it was about me,” Jack said. “It’s very special to me. … It kind of relieves you of your pain. You say, `oh, I’m not special, I can’t write, I can’t read.’ But the book makes you say, `I am very special,’ and I think other kids like me will realize that once they read the book.” The book highlights numerous issues children with learning challenges face, and

while addressing them on the left-facing pages in short rhymes, the right-facing page spells out “I believe in you” in a refrain that carries from page to page throughout the 29-page book, which is geared for kids who are starting to figure out they are different. “It’s around first grade that kids start to figure out who is in the advanced reading group and who is in the less advanced reading group,” the Highlands Ranch author said. “That’s when their social and emotional needs really start to become apparent and they place a lot of their social values on kids that are like them.” DeBeer sees the book as a tool that kids can really benefit from, to learn that it is OK to be different, and that just because one doesn’t fit in doesn’t mean they aren’t special and doesn’t mean they don’t try hard or aren’t smart or talented.

‘Collective Nest’ dedicated at Hudson Gardens Outdoor sculpture represents protective space for wildlife By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com Sculptor Joshua Wiener recently explained his concept for “Collective Nest,” his new piece of public art installed at Hudson Gardens and Event Center. It uses contrasting curved and straight lines to form a giant nest that protects wildlife. The nest and supporting post are milled steel, which has already formed a coat of rust, which will protect it from further deterioration, he said. The fish and hawk in the nest are made of stainless steel and will not oxidize, pro-

if you Go Hudson Gardens and Event Center is at 6115 S. Santa Fe Drive, Littleton. It is open daily from 9 a.m.-5 p.m., except for early closing on concert days. Admission is free for garden visits, but there is a charge for concerts. Hudsongardens.org. viding contrast. Members of South Suburban Parks and Recreation District’s Public Art Committee hosted a dedication of the 22-foot-tall sculpture on April 21 for friends, family, the public and SSPR representatives. It is placed west of the amphitheater, where it will be enjoyed by concert audiences and is high enough to be visible from the Mary Carter Greenway as well. Close beyond it is the new Songbird Gar-

den, which last fall had feeders, trees and shrubs installed that will attract birds. Soon, a group of perennials will go in, which also will provide food and nectar for birds. Said feathered friends will probably be seen perching on the giant nest. The garden area around the sculpture had been recently cleared with a prescribed burn and looked a bit bleak, but it should soon be filled again with blossoms and greenery next to the water garden. Visitors may enjoy watching it redevelop. Wiener, a Boulder resident, is the son of sculptor Madeline Wiener, who has a work in front of the Goodson Recreation Center. He teaches at Denver Art Students League and has works created in various materials across Colorado, including a cycling team in Durango and gates to the Carson Nature Center in Littleton.

Inside scoop: Oprah Winfrey, yes, that Oprah, will make a special appearance at Douglas County-based satellite company Dish Network’s annual retailer convention in San Antonio in mid-May. She’s supposed to be taping a 30-minute show during the event. Also entertaining during that event is comedian Bill Engvall of the Blue Collar Comedy Tour, and the band Train. Team Summit — the name of the conference — will be held May 14-16. Oprah will make her appearance on May 14. Jill Arrington from Fox Sports will be cohosting the entire week with Amir Ahmed, senior vice president of indirect sales for Dish. Don’t have details, but I’m told by a super-secret double-probation source that Oprah’s rider (meaning what she needs before and after her appearance) is crazy! Tons of diva-like demands. If I hear more, I will “dish” the deets.

Bonanno adds new pizzeria

Chef and restaurateur Frank Bonanno was set to open his latest joint, Bonanno Brothers Pizzeria, on April 27 at The Vistas at Park Meadows. It’s his first venture outside of Denver, and the 10th addition to his rapidly growing empire, which includes Mizuna, Luca d’Italia, Bones, Osteria Marco, Green Russell, Lou’s Food Bar, Russell’s Smokehouse and Vesper Lounge. Say what you want about Bonanno, but his record with successful eateries speaks for itself. Bonanno Brothers Pizzeria will feature an open kitchen with an Italian wood-fire oven that will showcase pizza makers, cheese mongers and charcutiers. “The menu at Bonanno Brothers Pizzeria started as something simple — unifying standout items from Osteria Marco with some of our cherished appetizers from Luca d’Italia,” Bonanno said. “The entire menu represents the food I always look forward to sharing with my family.” Hours are 11 a.m. to close on Monday through Sunday with happy hour from 2 to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 8 to 10 p.m. Saturday.

Oh, ick!

First Avenue Hotel and El Diablo and Sketch restaurant owner Jesse Morreale has far from come to terms with the city of Denver over alleged “safety violations” regarding his places of business. On April 25, Morreale lost yet another legal battle that said, barring improvements to the property, the city will have him shut down at First and Broadway on May 3. His attorney, David Foster, however, is fighting the order. For my part, I just hope that El Diablo stays open, because I think that space has been a real plus to that part of town. And executive chef Sean Yontz is the bomb (however you say that in Spanish) to that establishment. Stay tuned to this unfolding drama.

Taxi Continued from Page 1

“Right now some riders get a ride with us (in the morning) and forget (by the end of the day),” Watts said. “They think they made a reservation with the county. It would simplify the process for them and we would have fewer missed rides.” The missed rides result in part because the county’s hours are longer than the town’s, he said. By merging the two programs, the hours would be universal, the county would manage both programs and those who qualify through the town’s service would still be able to get rides for doctor’s appointments and grocery shopping, Watts said. In March, the county provided about 100 rides,

23 Community papers & websites. 400,000 readers.

80 of which were to Castle Rock residents, and the town extended about 180 rides to qualified users, Watts said. “Our ridership is going down because I believe some of our riders are going to Douglas County,” Watts said. The cab rides are provided by Yellow Cab and South Suburban Taxi, which receive reimbursement through the voucher programs, he said. The town will contribute its remaining 2013 budget, about $19,000, to the joint program, and by November will review the cost savings for a 2014 budget recommendation. Watts was instructed to prepare an intergovernmental agreement between the county and town for administration of the program.

What is the most challenging part of what you do? In Real Estate, there are no “business” hours and I need to be available 24-7 to best assist my clients. It never fails whenever we try to take a vacation, business calls and I end up working. The joke in my family is that when business slows down, just go on vacation!

since I moved here when I was two.

start es How long have you lived in the area? , I grew up in Colorado and made a brief hiatus gs, to Washington State for 14 years. I moved back in et,

2004 and been here ever since.

55 per 24; What do you like most about it? sit Colorado is home to me and most of my famnnex. ily lives in the area. I absolutely must be outdoors

whenever possible and living here offers endless opportunities to do just that!

What do you most enjoy doing when you’re not working? When I am not working you will find me outside! I love to run, hike, fly-fish, camp and moun mountain bike. I also enjoy pho photography and capturing

What is one tip you have for someone looking to sell a house? Most sellers, but not all, tend to think that their house is worth more than what market data suggests. You cannot control what the market value of your house is at a particular time so embrace it and make your house the best one for the price and you will sell quickly!

What is one tip you have for someone looking to buy a house? Keep your expectations realistic and options open. If you have an idea of the perfect house at a perfect price, you are setting yourself up for disappointment. Sometimes your “wants and needs” will change as you go through the home searching process. My favorite example of this was a young couple I worked with a few years back. On our first meeting, they were adamant in saying, “Heather, do NOT show us anything in Highlands Ranch!” From everything they told me they wanted and were looking for in a house, I knew of just the perfect house and you guessed it – it was in Highlands Ranch! I asked them to be open-minded and begged them to view this house. They reluctantly agreed and don’t you know it, they fell head over heels and are now proud homeowners in the one place they insisted they did not want to live! What is the most unusual thing you’ve encountered while working in Real Estate? While previewing homes – alone, for a client that worked long hours, I headed down to the basement and opened the door to a storage closet. As I flung open the door, I found myself eye to eye with a life-sized statue of the Virgin Mary. My brain could not process fast enough that I was just looking at a harmless Christmas decoration! I turned and ran out of that house so fast I almost forgot to lock the door. Now when previewing alone, I tell clients, “I do not do basements!”

How long have you worked in Real Estate?

RENTAL VACANCIES Randy Spierings, CPA, MBA Branch Manager

NMLS #217152 MLO #100022405 Primary Residential Mortgage, Inc. Office: 303-256-5748 www.BestColoradoMortgages.com rspierings@primeres.com Regulated by Division of Real Estate Has been a CPA for over 30 years

Q

: My understanding is that rental vacancies are decreasing and rental rates are increasing. I also have heard that housing prices are increasing and that interest rates are still near 60 year lows. In this scenario is it better to rent or own. : You are correct that vacancies are very low and are continuing to impact rental rates. This trend is being driven by the number of people that have lost homes through short sales and foreclosures and the tighter lending environment of the last several years. You are also correct that housing prices in many areas in Colorado are showing month to month and year over year increases as inventory of homes available for sale have dropped

A

from about 25,000 to around 6,000. And interest rates, driven by Federal Reserve efforts, a sluggish job environment and economy, and a flight to safety caused by uncertainty in Europe, are near 60 year lows. As a result home affordability is at near record levels and about twice as high as 6 years ago. Given this environment the mathematics are definitely waited in favor of purchasing. From a mathematical standpoint if someone rented a home today at $1200 per month and if rent increases by 3% per year, over the next 30 years a person would have spent over $680,000 for housing and would own nothing. A person that purchases a home for $200,000 today with a 30 year fixed mortgage would have a payment of about $1200 per month, which may be tax deductible, and except for increases in taxes and insurance, would remain constant for 30 years. Thus payments over the 30 years would probably be less than $500,000, resulting in savings versus renting of over

ourcolorado

$180,000. And that house, if it appreciated at 3% per year, would be worth $485,000. Total difference – over $665,000 in favor of owning. If you’re looking to purchase or refinance, seek out an experienced, trustworthy, financially savvy lender, that you can meet face to face, who has access to the full spectrum of loan and grant programs. Then work with them to select the proper loan and grant programs and have them customize them to best suit your needs.

Nighttime photographer enchants Littleton man’s work named Best of Show in Lone Tree

IF YOU GO The 2013 Lone Tree Photographic Art Show and Sale runs through June 9 at the Lone Tree Arts Center, 10075 Commons St., Lone Tree. It is open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays through Fridays and during performances. (When you visit, cast your vote for the People’s Choice award, to be given at the end of the show.) Information: LoneTreeArtsCenter, 720-509-1000. Admission is free.

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com “We expected 370 or so and there were over 600,” juror Weldon Lee said of entries at the April 20 opening of the 2013 Lone Tree Photographic Art Show and Sale. “It was overwhelming — I went through them again and again. I needed to narrow to 90 … it hurt to take images out ....” In the end, he focused on images that told a story over those that were technically perfect. The 93 images are thoughtfully displayed in the lobby and on adjacent hallway walls at the Lone Tree Arts Center. Lee awarded the teal Best of Show ribbon to Littleton photographer Mike Berenson, who specializes in capturing the Rocky Mountains at night — a magical world. His “Lenticular Mountain Milky Way” was shot at 4 a.m. on a moonless night at a ridgeline en route to Grizzly Peak. Berenson said he got a special permit from the state transportation department to leave his car at a parking spot off Loveland Pass and hiked three hours, with a companion, to reach this particular spot, where he knew the sky and reflections on the snow would be just so. (“Lenticular” is defined as relating to a lens.) A visit to his website illustrates his fas-

The B.I.G. Day – Community Tradition Continues It was a day of giving and gratitude, sweat equity and camaraderie, dirty hands and warm smiles as the third annual B.I.G. Day (B.I.G. stands for Be Involved, Give) proved that community spirit is alive and very well in South Metro Denver. The Chamber’s Non-profit & Business Partnership lead by Steve Bocher of Catch Fire Marketing as Chair, and Laurian Horowitz of Colorado Life Lessons as Event Chair continued the community tradition. Although the turnout was smaller than last year’s recordbreaking event, the almost 337 volunteers were very motivated with some nonprofits having to create additional projects as the planned ones were accomplished in record time. Activities ran the gamut from planting vegetables at Denver Botanic Gardens at Chatfield, to building storage racks and organizing at SheShe’s Corner and planting trees and weeding at the Denver Botanic Gardens community garden. Medical supplies were sorted at Project CURE for shipment to 3rd world hospitals, and food boxes were packed at the Jeffco Action Center. Thomas Messina of Mountaintop Acupuncture enjoyed getting dirty at Denver Botanic Gardens at Chatfield: “It was great getting into the dirt to plant onions, I would work in the garden on a regular basis. It’s good to help the community. I want to thank the Chamber and everyone involved in making this happen. The Audubon Society of Greater Denver got trails cleaned up and readied for the summer months, and volunteers accomplished spring cleaning at Boys Hope Girls Hope. Alternatives Pregnancy

Center got their offices ship-shape in record time, and TLC Meals on Wheels of Littleton got must needed help with the preparation and delivery of meals to their elderly clients. South Suburban Parks got a sprucing up through the South Suburban Parks & Recreation Foundation volunteers while “spa boxes” were assembled for cancer patients at Spa 4 the Pink. “I’m a firm believer in giving to the community and whatever we give always seems to come back ten-fold. It also just plain feels good! Wonderful program! Great people! Thanks for facilitating and coordinating such an incredible event! Kudos to Lauren, the committee and all the sponsors,” stated Heidi Winter of European Wax Center who helped out at SheShe’s Corner. Many businesses and organizations came together and organized teams and groups of volunteers for the B.I.G. Day activities. CliftonLarsonAllen, InfoCubic, Webolutions, Silpada Designs, Leadapalooza Leads Group, The Leading Edge, Rotary Club of Littleton Sunrise, Catch Fire Marketing, Dream Catcher Affinity Group, American Heritage Girls, Sierra Ridge Networks, and NAMI Arapahoe/ Douglas County all came out in force to make the day a success. Brien Darby, Manager of the Denver Botanic Gardens community gardening program was thrilled with the experience. “I presented them with some very big tasks with a lot of digging and heavy lifting and they were just about the most enthusiastic group I have ever worked with! We completed all the tasks I had planned and even started on a few additional projects. I really appreciate the level of teamwork

and “ready for anything” attitude that we consistently receive from volunteers participating in the BIG help day.” After all of the hard work, it was time to blow off some steam as many of the volunteers gathered at the Chamber Center to celebrate the day. With a delicious lunch buffet served by event sponsor McCormick & Schmick’s, the group watched as Brian Olson of Conversation Starters had a video already prepared showing the day’s activities. The crowd gave a cheer of support for the B.I.G. Day and many expressed that this was just a beginning with many more hours of volunteer efforts were to come. Chamber Investor LokalMotion was also a sponsor of the event making it the best post-B.I.G. Day celebration yet. Chamber Nonprofit and Business Partnership Chair Steve Bocher of Catch Fire Marketing thanked the B.I.G. Day Organizing Committee members: Chair Laurian Horowitz of Colorado Life Lessons, Brian Olson of Conversation Starters, and Sandy Coen of SheShe’s Corner as well as all of the volunteers past and present. “ ...while the official tally isn’t in, you should take great pride in knowing that over the past three years 9,000-10,000 volunteer hours have been spent making our community a better, more prosperous place...and that thousands of lives have been touched because of the work that was accomplished during the B.I.G. Day. And also significant, thousands of people have been exposed to the great work of dozens of non-profits and many have stayed connected to these organizations and gone back to support them again!”

Competition tough at Liberty Bell Top athletes tested in continuing bid to land a state meet berth By Tom Munds

tmunds@ourcoloradonews.com Athletes from schools around the state traveled to Littleton April 26 and 27 for the Liberty Bell Invitational Track Meet for the opportunity to match their talents against some of the best competition in the state. “This is one of the final big meets before state, the competition level is high and so kids making bids to go to state get to see the caliber of competition they will face there,” said Larry Lienemann, one of the meet founders. Sixty-two schools were represented at the meet so the battles were fierce for the top spot in every event. Cherry Creek’s girls won the team title for the second year in a row. The Bruins were first in the standings with 76 points and the Arapahoe girls were second with

64 points while ThunderRidge finished third with 42 points. Rock Canyon finished 11th with 26 points and Highlands Ranch was 20th with 12.5 points. In the boys division, FountainFort Carson topped the team title with 84 points. Arapahoe and Cherry Creek tied for fourth with 32 points each and a host of local teams finished in the top 20 with Valor Christian eighth, Heritage 11th, Mountain Vista 12th, Highlands Ranch 14th, Castle View 15th and Douglas County 16th. Freshman Ashley Miller did her share to help Cherry Creek’s girls win the team title as she finished first in the 100-meter hurdles and the 300-meter hurdles and joined forces with Jessica Daubert, Megan McCabe and Emily Romo to win the 4x100 relay. “When I started doing track a couple years ago, I thought it was cool to jump over stuff so I started running the hurdle events,” Miller said. “I am getting better at the events because I am getting faster and I am putting in more work to improve the techniques you need to be competitive in the hurdles.”

Douglas County sprinter Trey Smith competes in the 100-meter dash finals at the April 27 Liberty Bell Track Meet. Smith finished third with a time of 10.95 seconds. Photo by Tom Munds The freshman said the competition at the Liberty Bell was challenging and helped her take another step to drop her time in the 100 hurdles to 13.5 seconds. Arapahoe scored a lot of points in the relays to help the Warriors take runner-up honors in the girls division. Arapahoe took first place in the 4x400 relay and the 4x800 relay and was second in the 4x200 relay. Taryn Phillips helped

the Warrior cause by winning the 400-meter dash with a time of 55.62 seconds. Littleton’s Barry Visser and teammates Jake Bergman, Jack Bobb and D’Angelo DeNiro finished sixth in the 4x400-meter relay, Visser’s favorite event. “I started running track to get in shape for soccer but my brother graduated two years ago, he ran track so I decided to run track too,” he said. “It turned out to be fun. I really like the 4x400 relay because it is an interesting race plus my teammates are my brothers and we battle to help each other.” Valor Christian’s Marybeth Sant won the 100-meter dash in

record-meet time of 11.65 seconds and her teammate Hailey Showalter won the discus with a throw of 145 feet, 4 inches. On the track, a pair of ThunderRidge girls, Cassidy Bowers and Carly Paul, finished third and fourth respectively in the 300-meter hurdles. In boys competition, Tanner Townsend of Castle View took first place in the 400-meter dash with a time of 47.93 seconds while Douglas County’s Trey Smith ran a 10.95-second race to finish third in the 100-meter dash. In the 200-meter dash, Rock Canyon’s Brian Goldberg took runner-up honors with a time of 22.27 seconds.

Jaguars edge Falcons in league soccer play Rock Canyon girls take 1-0 victory over Highlands Ranch By Jim Benton

jbenton@ourcoloradonews.com Dakota Wendell was confident that Rock Canyon would secure a Continental League girls soccer victory after her first-half goal. Wendell, a freshman forward, scored in the 24th minute, and it was the only goal of the April 25 match as Rock Canyon downed Highlands Ranch 1-0 at Shea Stadium. “Kaycie (Young) fed me the ball,” Wendell said. “I could see the defender out of the corner of my eye. I was deciding to pull it back and shoot it with my right foot because I’m right-footed. So I shot it with my left. It felt good to score.’ “I was confident that one goal would put us with the win. I’m really confident with our back line.” Rock Canyon coach Mat Henbest wasn’t as certain. “We played pretty good soccer,” Henbest said. “We were getting in on them. We weren’t finishing the opportunities. The most dangerous they ever got was a couple free kicks, and with a 1-0 lead that’s not very safe. “It (lead) really didn’t feel comfortable. You’re one free kick away.

They could really strike the ball well. Anything within 30 or 40 yards is going to be difficult for any team.” Highlands Ranch had one of its best chances with 11:40 left in the game, when Jenny Plummer’s free kick wasn’t controlled by Jaguars goalkeeper Lauren Mooney, but she quickly regained possession. Rock Canyon took only one corner kick in the game, but Henbest still felt his team should have been up by more than just one goal. “I really think the game could have been four or five (to nothing),” Henbest said. “We hit the post in the first half.” Rock Canyon, the state’s No. 3 ranked Class 5A team, was missing four starters and Highlands Ranch had seven players out with injuries. “We knew we would have trouble with any sustained attack with seven girls injured right now,” Highlands Ranch coach Randy Hodous said. “We were looking for a corner kick or finishing a free kick. We thought that would be our in.” Plummer, the Falcons’ top scorer who was averaging 1.33 goals and 3 points per game, played on the back line until late in the game “We stacked the back because we knew they were fast and we had to put some of our faster players back there,” Hodous said.

‘If we can get in that top six, we have a chance to make the playoffs. We’ve got our work cut out.’ Randy Hodous, Highlands Ranch coach

Rock Canyon’s Rebecca Pousma (15) battles Jenny Plummer of Highlands Ranch for a 50-50 ball during an April 25 game at Shea Stadium. Photo by Jim Benton The victory pushed Rock Canyon’s Continental League record to 9-1-0. The Jaguars (11-1-1 overall) are in second behind place behind

top-ranked Mountain Vista. Rock Canyon ended the regular season April 30 with a game against Regis Jesuit. The top four teams in the

league automatically qualify for the state playoffs, while several other Continental teams hope to gain wild-card playoff berths. “This was a good win for us getting a good seed,” Henbest said. “Now we are 10-1-1 and that’s about the second best in the state. We’re in a good position. Now it’s just about seeding.” Rock Canyon notched another 1-0 victory, a non-league triumph over Dakota Ridge April 27, as Young scored the lone Jaguar goal. Highlands Ranch is 3-4-1 in the league and 4-7-1 overall and entered the final week of the season in seventh place. “If we can get in that top six, we have a chance to make the playoffs,” Hodous said. “We’ve got our work cut out.”

Hard-charging, but humble Castle View soccer player demands perfection from herself

$7,050 Off MSRP

By Jim Benton

jbenton@ourcoloradonews.com Julie Mackin has the most goals and points recorded in the Continental League’s girls soccer statistics this season. That would cause many soccer players to create some kind of spontaneous celebration, but not Mackin, the freshman who has scored 11 goals and has 28 points for her Castle View soccer team. “Even with all of her ability, Julie is one of the most humble, self-effacing athletes I have ever coached,” Castle View coach Perry Glantz said. “She never does anything to draw attention to herself and away from the team. “Julie is very hard on herself and demands perfection from herself in her game. As a coach, I find I have to convince her to give herself a break now and then and not get too selfcritical.” Mackin, who by the end of this spring will have lettered in cross country, track and soccer during her first year in high school, claims she is starting to be more positive on the field. “Sometimes I am pretty hard on myself,” Mackin said. “I end up being a little negative. I need to stay positive during games. This season, I feel I have been getting better staying positive every game. “I just need to make sure that technically I’m getting better. And my passes should be better than they are. But I am happy when I score a goal.” Mackin, who plays club soccer for Real Colorado’s nationally ranked U15 team, attended two U.S. National U14 training camps last year. “I hope to get better so I can make

‘Julie is a very gifted athlete and a great kid. She has tremendous ball skill and speed.’ Perry Glantz, Castle View coach the next camp,” Mackin said. “I’m really happy with this season. It’s fun to play high school soccer. It’s different than club. It’s a different experience. It’s fun to play against older girls from different age groups. They are a lot more competitive and they are bigger. It’s hard to play against them.” It might be hard to play against the

more mature high school juniors and seniors, but Glantz knows Mackin has the ability to compete. “Julie is a very gifted athlete and a great kid,” Glantz said. “She has tremendous ball skill and speed. Julie seems to be able to do things with the ball at full speed and under pressure that most players have difficulty doing on a field in training.”

HIGH SCHOOL SPORTS ROUNDUP Ranch swimmer has fastest time

Nathan Mueller of Highlands Ranch has the fastest time recorded in the state in the 500-yard freestyle, according to Class 5A swimming times released April 24. Mueller, a junior who was second in the 500 at last season’s state meet, swam a 4:36.41 March 30 at the Dick Rush Memorial Coaches Invitational meet. He also has recorded the fifth quickest time in the 50-yard freestyle with a 46.96 clocking. Mueller’s teammate Matthew Reed’s time of 1:53.55 is the second fastest on record this season in the 200-yard individual medley. Carter Griffin, the defending 200 and 500 freestyle state champion who swims for Ponderosa’s co-op team, has the state’s second fastest time of 49.65 in the 100 backstroke and the third best time of 51.95 in the 100 butterfly. John Jenner of Douglas County/ Castle View is listed third in times

recorded in the 50 freestyle with a 21.58, and his 46.96 clocking in the 100 freestyle ranked fifth.

Former Falcon gets NFL invite

Former Highlands Ranch athlete Joe Caprioglio, a 6-foot-6, 315-pound offensive lineman who started 22 games at Colorado State University, has been invited to attend training camp with the NFL’s Arizona Cardinals. “It looks like the Arizona Cardinals are going to give me a shot and to just get in front of them and show them what I can do is just a blessing,” Caprioglio said on the CSU website.
