Building permits, sales tax on rise Castle Rock numbers show recovery underway By Virginia Grantier

vgrantier@ourcoloradonews.com Castle Rock is definitely seeing economic recovery, Deputy Town Manager Fritz Sprague told the town council at its June 18 meeting. Sprague said staff is having to revise numbers in the town’s three-year plan because of an increase in both building permit numbers and sales tax revenue. The town expected a 6 percent increase

in sales tax revenue in 2012 and actually saw a 7.7 percent increase, he said. In 2013, the town expected 5 percent, but is going at a 5.3 percent rate. He said staff is upping the 2014 projected increase in sales tax revenue from 4 percent to 5.5 percent. Building-permit numbers are much larger than expected. In 2012, there were 534 single-family building permits, instead of the expected 425 permits, he said. For 2013, staff expected 350 permits, but at the rate the town is going, that projection has been changed to 750 permits. And Sprague expects even more.

“I’m not really a betting man, but I bet we get pretty close to 800,” he said. The town’s revenues and fund balances are in a good place, he said. Councilmember Clark Hammelman’s reaction to Sprague’s presentation was to ask whether the council shouldt consider changing the sales tax rate. “One of roles is making sure people aren’t paying too much in taxes,” he said. “I’m wondering if that is something (to) consider.” The town council can mull that over, among many other ideas, at a budget workshop set for July 30, a major step in crafting next year’s town budget.

Mayor Paul Donahue said he personally wasn’t “as bullish on the next few years.” He said there is the specter of rising interest rates, and that “we’re possibly moving into another housing bubble.” Also he said the stock market has been going up for about five years without any big corrections yet. “My recommendation … let’s be cautious,” he said. Donahue there are a lot of indications that a house of cards is being built, nationally. He said he wants to make sure the town is ready for another downturn. He said the town’s reserves really helped them get through the last one.

Teacher turnover declines School district figures show 380 departing By Jane Reuter

Educators go on working vacation 200 teachers attend summer science camp By Virginia Grantier

vgrantier@ourcoloradonews.com It’s summertime, time to be lounging by the pool, just like teachers Amanda Schmidt and Karen Stanfield. Well, maybe not just like them. The two elementary school teachers were sitting on a concrete sidewalk June 24 next to a kiddie wading pool in 90s temps, and they were dressed in long pants. Not cool. Stanfield’s long shirtsleeves were pushed up for work. And their focus was on handfuls of nails and the sand-dollar-size boats they had just designed out of soft clay. The idea was to see how many nails they could load on their boats before it sank. Ultimately, Schmidt prevailed with 16 nails to

Stanfield’s 11. They had taken the plunge, just like about 200 other Douglas County elementary teachers, to spend two summer days soaking up not sun but science camp at Castle Rock Elementary School — an opportunity that Jaime Bailey, a district assessment specialist for professional development, and others had organized. Bailey said busy elementary teachers often focus on teaching life and earth sciences instead of physical science. The Science continues on Page 9

Debbie Charleton, a fourth-grade teacher at Bear Canyon Elementary, tries to create energy without the traditional battery, making an “enviro battery” using vinegar and other ingredients. She was learning the ins and outs of a new lab for her students.

A total of 380 teachers, or about 11.7 percent, of Douglas County teachers are leaving the school district this year. That figure is down from the 2012 turnover rate of 13.26 percent recorded by the Colorado Department of Education. Returning teachers were required to return contracts by June 23. After two spring protests surrounding the district’s new teacher evaluation program, and reports that large numbers of teachers would leave DCSD this year, the district report makes school board president John Carson very happy. “It validated what we’ve been hearing,” he said. “The Carson vast majority of teachers are staying. The TELL survey tells us they’re happy with their school environment. “These numbers are not large. If (departing teachers) wish to be vocal about it, it indicates they’re not happy. So we wish them well.” The state education department’s Teaching, Empowering, Leading and Learning (TELL) survey showed 84.7 percent of DCSD teachers agree their school is a good place to work and learn. But it also showed 22 percent of teachers — more than twice the state average — planned to leave the district or the field of education entirely. The district’s recently released teacher statistics show those numbers did not come to fruition. Teachers’ union president Brenda Smith had a different take on the numbers. “Three hundred eighty teachers leaving is equivalent to 10 elementary schools losing their entire staff,” she said. “Most of these teachers leaving are experienced teachers with a record of accomplishment and close ties to the community. It is sad Turnover continues on Page 9

New commissioner districts approved County eliminates split precincts, divided communities By Ryan Boldrey

rboldrey@ourcoloradonews.com Douglas County commissioners unanimously approved the modification of the county’s commissioner districts and added

a new precinct this past week. A total of seven precincts were affected by the June 25 vote that stemmed from a May proposal by Douglas County Clerk and Recorder Jack Arrowsmith. Arrowsmith saw a need for the change after state and federal redistricting in 2011 led to the placing of six Douglas County precincts in two separate commissioner districts. “A precinct has to be entirely within a

single U.S. Congressional district, a single U.S. Senate district and entirely in a state House and state Senate district,” Arrowsmith said in May. “Once we redesigned our precincts (to meet these requirements following the changes) we discovered that our original districts had certain precincts that sat in more than one commissioner district.” And while it is legal to split a precinct between two commissioners, Arrowsmith said it makes it much easier to have each precinct in one commissioner district and that the new redistricting also tidies up some other boundary issues. In addition to ensuring that there would be just one commissioner per precinct, the changes move the Highlands Ranch Open Space Conservation Area on the southwest side of Highlands Ranch from Commissioner Roger Partridge’s southern District 2 into Commissioner Jill Repella’s District 3, with

the rest of Highlands Ranch. The Rueter-Hess Reservoir, which was recently annexed into Parker, also moved out of Partridge’s district and now sits in Commissioner Jack Hilbert’s District 1, along with all other Parker addresses in the county. “The statute requires only a balance in population,” Repella said. “It made sense to start looking at this from the standpoint of community continuity and what we can do to make sure the communities are still tied together. ... It’s nice to have (the conservation area) connected back to the community of Highlands Ranch.” With the addition of the new precinct, there are now 145 precincts in the county. There are now 36,967 households in District 1, 36,877 in District 2 and 36,029 in District 3. To see a map of the newly aligned precincts, visit www.douglas.co.us/elections.

Leader of new church has questionable history Calvary Chapel says former pastor left it in fiscal disarray By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com A pastor who recently started a new church in Lone Tree left his former Castle Rock church in financial disarray after leaving there in December 2011, according to current leaders of Castle Rock’s Calvary Chapel. Brian Abeyta, senior pastor at Calvary Chapel from 2003 to 2011, in April led the debut service of the Beauty for Ashes Fellowship in a rented space at the Lone Tree Recreation Center. In January 2012, he gave his last address to parishioners at Castle Rock’s Calvary Abeyta Chapel, asking forgiveness for his behavior there. “I let my guard down,” he said in a recorded address. “I became selfabsorbed, financially irresponsible, bitter, a liar, deceptive, even unforgiving, all within these last few months. And for this, I’m deeply sorry.” According to officials at the Castle Rock church, they’re still paying back rent and property taxes on their building, left unpaid under Abeyta’s leadership. Senior pastor

‘Calvary Chapel is thriving. We lost a few hundred people, but we also recouped a few hundred new people.’ Dave Love, Calvary Chapel senior pastor Dave Love and board member Dave Weston said that for the last three years Abeyta was at the Castle Rock church, it operated without a board, in violation of bylaws. Based on an independent audit, they believe Abeyta spent more than $200,000 for personal use in 2011 alone. “The money we’re talking about is well beyond any benefit or salary,” Love said. “It’s unambiguous,” Weston agreed. “People have gone to jail for less.” Abeyta said the money was properly spent for his housing and gas allowances. “At the audit, they said we think you should be taxed on this housing allowance and gas allowances,” Abeyta said. “I said, ‘I agree.’ Whatever you feel is income that is invalid, send it to me. We’ll take that hit. “I was irresponsible with some of the church finances. To say there was money that was stolen, or taken from the church? I’ll tell you what, it’s still 100 percent inac-

curate. Everything’s been twisted and distorted to make us look like something we are not.” Abeyta also consistently failed to pay the full monthly rental amount, leaving the church $440,000 in arrears with its landlord, Love and Weston said. Love said the landlord has agreed to reduce that amount and is allowing the church to slowly repay the balance. “We’re hoping by the end of the year to be debt-free,” Love said. Love and Weston said the church also had no board in 2009 and 2010, but they opted not to do a financial audit of those years. “We already had our answer,” Love said. Because Abeyta has a wife and four children, Love said the church opted not to prosecute him, instead sending him a 1099 for $200,000. A 1099 is a tax form detailing income beyond salary; the person who was paid those

funds must pay taxes on that income. “Biblically, that’s what we saw as the best thing to do,” Love said. “We didn’t want to cause any hardship for them. As a body of believers, we needed to move forward.” Abeyta took a corporate job on the East Coast after his resignation, but said he felt it wasn’t a good fit and that God was calling him back to Douglas County to start a new church. Abeyta said he renegotiated the Castle Rock church’s lease agreement, and could provide documentation to refute Calvary Chapel’s claims. He did not do so, saying he and his wife, Jenipher, prayed about the best way to respond. “We were both in agreement that bantering back and forth is not glorifying to the Lord,” Abeyta wrote in a June 26 email. “I am deeply sorry for how my actions affected the innocent people that we loved so dearly. We have put layers of protection around us this time, to ensure those things do not happen ever again.” Love and Weston said they never intended to go public with Abeyta’s alleged wrongdoing, but felt compelled to after learning he had started the Lone Tree church. The Castle Rock church has recovered. “Calvary Chapel is thriving,” Love said. After Abeyta left, “We lost a few hundred people, but we also recouped a few hundred new people.”

This Weekend!

rboldrey@ourcoloradonews.com The Sterling Ranch planned development will seek approval from Douglas County commissioners for a second time this coming week. The county approved the project in 2011, but a 2012 court ruling by 18th Judicial District Court Judge Paul King stated that the project did not have sufficient water secured to break ground. Plans for Sterling Ranch call for a 12,000-home community on 3,400 acres northeast of Roxborough State Park. After requests to have the ruling overturned, Sterling Ranch officials submitted a 121-page filing to the county in March stating that it had since met the necessary water requirements for build-out and that it is ready to begin the development. “The ruling said that we must have 25 years of water before we can start, so we set about to obtain sufficient water for the entire development, and we’ve done that,” said Harold Smethills, Sterling Ranch managing director, following an agreement to acquire 4,200 acre-feet of water from Dominion Water. At the time of King’s ruling, Smethills said Sterling Ranch had already purchased 88 million gallons from Aurora Water — enough to meet the needs of the first plat

scheduled for the phased development. Plans at the time, he said, called for purchasing or leasing the remainder of the water on a phase-by-phase basis. Now, Smethills says, they have all the water required, and he expects the county to give the project the green light once again. Jim Kreutz, the attorney who represented the Chatfield Community Association in the suit that halted the development in 2012, said Sterling Ranch’s filing might not satisfy all of the issues they had raised in court. “There may be other unresolved issues, such as transportation and other regulations we didn’t feel that they complied with,” Kreutz said. “The court didn’t address the other issues because they only ruled on the water issue.” Kreutz said that if his clients do not feel those other issues have been addressed, there is a possibility the Chatfield Community Association will file suit again. Along with the homes, the Sterling Ranch development has plans for multiple parks, 30 miles of trails, three wildlife corridors, a multi-field athletic complex, a hospital, fire services, schools, and a town center patterned after Littleton’s historic downtown. “We’re hopeful that we will be able to start moving dirt by the end of this year, and that if all goes well, we’ll start to see homes coming up in 2014,” Smethills said. The public hearing is scheduled for 1 p.m. July 10 at the Philip S. Miller Building, 100 Third St. in Castle Rock.

Crews stop two fires near homes Blazes occur in area along railroad tracks By Virginia Grantier

vgrantier@ourcolorado news.com A 22-acre fire June 27 came within 10 feet of a guesthouse, and a 1.2-acre fire just south of that came within 100 yards of homes in Castle Rocks’ The Meadows subdivision. Both were stopped by about 40 firefighters in about an hour, said Castle Rock Fire Chief Art Morales. It’s possible a train was the cause of the fires, both of which seemed to originate near the railbed, but Morales said motorbikes use a dirt trail that runs parallel to the tracks, so that’s a possibility, too. James Bailey, 27, who lives on Morning Glory Drive in The Meadows, said he called 911 after seeing

flames shooting up above a dirt trail about 150 yards from his home. He said he later watched a helicopter dropping water, which seemed to eliminate the fire there. Morales said initial reports coming in at about 2 p.m. June 27 indicated that the blazes were a single fire. When crews discovered two fires, it became a two-alarm fire and more fire departments, for a total of five and about 40 firefighters, were called out. When they arrived, the larger fire was about a third of the size it ultimately grew into, and the smaller was about half the size, Morales said. He said there wasn’t a need to evacuate homes near the fires because of several things, including the lack of strong winds and lack of fuel, since it was grassland with few trees; and also because of the fire crews’ success at developing fire breaks. Also, Castle

Rock brought in a helicopter to make water drops. Waverton Ranch is a subdivision north of The Meadows of mainly undeveloped large-acreage lots. But a developed lot in the middle of it — a house along with its guesthouse — was in the path of the larger fire. Much of a fenced-in pasture was burned, the fence was damaged, and the fire got within 10 feet of the guesthouse, but firefighters were able to stop it at that point, Morales said. The owner wasn’t home at the time. Firefighters also had to deal with the property’s creosote-treated fence posts, which can burn for a long time. Some were removed and moved into the burned area where they could do no harm. Firefighters returned throughout the night to check on the area, said Castle Rock spokeswoman Karen McGrath.

douglas county news in a hurry Ceremony to honor former mayor

A celebration-of-life ceremony, hosted by the family of former Castle Rock Mayor Ray Waterman, who died earlier this year, will take place from 2 to 4 p.m. July 6 in the Castle Rock Town Hall, in the council chambers, 100 N. Wilcox St. The town is formally memorializing Waterman in a couple of ways, according to a news release. In May, town staff and Key Bank employees planted a dozen trees, paid for by community member donations, along Sellars Gulch, where Ray and his wife, Linda Waterman, walked nearly every day when they lived in Castle Rock. A memorial bench will be placed along the tree grove. The town council also planned to vote on making Waterman a recipient of the Vision Cornerstone Award, which honors residents who have made exceptional contributions to the town. A plaque will be placed along Sellars Gulch Trail between Cantril and Lewis streets, near the grove of trees and memorial bench. During Waterman’s tenure on council, from 1987 to 1991 and from 2001-06, he led the town through issues such as securing long-term water solutions and the development of the Castle Rock Recreation Center.

Wildfire threatens golf, fishing resort Castle Rock pair bought business in 2011

It has a four-star rating from Golf Did to gest magazine, but the Rio Grande Club in s creSouth Fork, owned by a Castle Rock couple, osts, also must have a lucky star. So far, anyway. long The southwest Colorado club — 200plus acres that weaves back and forth and across the Rio Grande River and has goldarea medal fly fishing — is the biggest employer o no in the town of South Fork, population 200. People from Texas and Arizona and rned other spots come there to beat the summer t to heat, said Joey Edge, who bought the club in said 2011 with his wife, Kari Edge. man But recently the heat was bearing down on them as a monster wildfire climbed over the Continental Divide June 20, heading east, and was within three miles of the town and the club. Kari Edge and their daughter, Aspen, were heading that day from Castle Rock to the club, which they typically do every weekend to work on club enhancement projects. The Edges bought the property — which had been struggling since the recent eco-

nomic downturn — with no intention of liquidating and selling assets, they said. The mission has been to revive the club and so help South Fork’s economy. Joey Edge said he kind of sees his calling in life as to “build economies and enhance economies … that’s how people get a leg up.” Projects for that weekend were to include planting flowers and preparing for a 200-guest wedding to be held there. But Kari Edge said she began to realize the immensity of the problem about 1½ hours away from South Fork. She said the clouds of smoke were a terrible visual reality. “I was facing a Goliath,” she said. Kari Edge said there was little sleep that night and the next morning, June 21, they got the news the town was “shutting down,” evacuating. No wedding, no planting, just leaving. “When we left it was a ghost town,” she said. Except for the caravan of fire trucks. She said the lump in her throat from fearing the unknown turned into a different emotion — gratitude for the firefighters. Presently, so far, the town is safe, and the hope is that people planning to vacation there will still come. Joey Edge said a lot of people, fishing guides and other businesses, are depending on a short tourism season.

Castle Pines councilman can’t peruse city checkbook Official ponders next move after access blocked By Virginia Grantier

vgrantier@ourcoloradonews.com Castle Pines City Council Member James Einolf, who wants to view the city’s check register for the last two years, said in a recent interview that he doesn’t know yet what he’s going to do about Mayor Jeffrey Huff directing the finance director not to give him that information — and about the council siding with Huff at the June 11 city council meeting. “I could sue the city … but I didn’t get elected to cost the (city residents) money,” he said in the interview. He also doesn’t want to file a request under the Colorado Open Records Act, because that would cost him money. “It’s tough because it’s so unheard of,” he said. “It’s so outlandish. I don’t know where to start or (how to) react.” Einolf, who has been a council member for close to two years, said he thinks the financial packets he gets at the council meetings give him all the information he needs. But he still wants to review the check register, and he said he believes “an elected official should receive any information they want.” Einolf did say he was looking for legal

and engineering expenses in particular, but didn’t offer more detail on why and said that wasn’t pertinent. Huff, at the June 11 council meeting, said he didn’t think Einolf’s request was an appropriate use of taxpayer money and staff time. And Huff added after the meeting that it would have been different if Einolf had some specificity in his request — such as if he were looking for some clarity on a particular project, like more detail on financing of a city road project. But Einolf’s request was more a “give-me-everything-you’ve-got,” Huff said. “It was just overly reaching.” Huff, however, did say that Einolf has not been someone who has pestered city staff with numerous requests. Einolf said this is actually the first time he has made such a request, and the finance director told him it would take her about 15 minutes of her time to put the information together. But council members responding to Einolf’s request at the meeting had questions and concerns. Council Member Tera Radloff said the staff didn’t work for the council members and shouldn’t be at their beck and call. “It’s improper,” she said. “What is it you’re looking for?” Council Member Marc Towne asked Einolf at the June 11 meeting, and he expressed weariness about the secretive nature of the request and described Einolf’s efforts as “another James Einolf `witch hunt.’”

Funeral Facts

J.R. Pinon Olinger Andrews Caldwell Gibson Chapel

Q. I know I want to be cremated, but I’m not sure I want a memorial service. Any advice? A. In my experience, a funeral or memorial service can be very important for those you’re leaving behind. Many of those who don’t want memorialization may not realize that a ceremony can help your loved ones begin to accept your passing. A memorial gives people who are close to you the time to come together and celebrate your life – and the chance to say goodbye. Without such a service, people sometimes struggle to find the closure they will need. With cremation, you are not limited when it comes to memorialization nor do you have to use a cremation society. Your neighborhood funeral home and cemetery can offer traditional services or completely personalized memorials, ground burial of cremated remains, or placement in a mausoleum or columbarium. While some choose to scatter ashes or keep them in the family home, others have found that the placement of an urn in a cemetery provides a permanent place for loved ones to visit at any time, for generations to come. If you have more questions about your cremation options, visit your local funeral provider. They are a good source of information available to those choosing cremation. Jerald “J. R.” Pinon is the Location Manager at Olinger Andrews Caldwell Gibson Chapel, a member of the Dignity Memorial® network serving the Castle Rock community. He frequently offers funeral-related advice and counseling to area families. For information or to ask a question, contact J. R. at 303-688-3191. CastleRk_FF_ JR_Cremation_5,04x4,125.indd 1

opinions / yours and ours

Sterling Ranch merits approval, again Sterling Ranch has been a developing story for years. More than a decade ago, managing director Harold Smethills and his wife, Diane, began crafting their vision for developing 3,400 acres of land in northwest Douglas County. In 2009, they filed a planned-development application with Douglas County. In 2011, the project gained the county’s approval — but only after numerous public hearings and convincing commissioners they had a plan to satisfy concerns raised over traffic, density and water. Then, in 2012, a lawsuit by the Chatfield Community Association led to a district court judge’s ruling that the $4.4 billion project did not have sufficient water to break ground. Early this year, Sterling Ranch officials submitted a filing to the county stating that they had secured enough water to meet the requirements. If that weren’t enough, the state Legislature was busy this spring clarifying the very law the judge leaned on for his ruling. The

our view legislators’ modification makes it clear that developers need only to prove adequate water at each phase of construction, not for the entire buildout. The latest development in this story is set for July 10. That’s when county commissioners will once again be asked to approve the Sterling Ranch project. We have no reason to believe commissioners who sided with Sterling Ranch on the water issue more than two years ago won’t do so again. They certainly should. Sterling Ranch’s planning has been water-savvy from the beginning. Owing to techniques like rainwater harvesting, the development is expected to consume only a third of the water a similar project might.

question of the week

Are you safe on light rail? In light of recent assaults at RTD light-rail stops at Arapahoe County’s Nine Mile Station and Lakewood’s Lamar Station,

Colorado Community Media asked riders at Lincoln Station in Lone Tree if they feel safe riding the light rail on a regular basis.

“On a regular basis, I feel really comfortable. I do tend not to ride mass transit after 10 p.m. though … I’ll take a cab or get a ride.” — Erica Walton, Lakewood

“I feel safe. I ride every day from Colorado Station to Lincoln Station and back.” — Max Baca, Aurora

“Pretty safe, and I ride every day normally and in the summer every other day to get to classes.” — Dakota Edmonds, Highlands Ranch

“I feel incredibly safe. I’m disabled, so when the weather is nice and there’s not snow, I get a ride here and then I go downtown and I do a little shopping and then my husband takes me home.” — Terrie Sherrow, Castle Rock

Think I’m not cool? You’re getting warm I think most of us would rather be cool. I think most of us would rather look cool and act cool, and to say cool things. Cool people wear cool shirts. They listen to cool music. Know cool people. Drive a cool car. Eat at the coolest places. Go to cool parties. Go on cool trips. They have a cool dog and a cool hat. Cool shoes? Absolutely. I hear that word a lot, but no one has ever said that I was cool. I have known for some time that I am not cool. Cool people don’t own khakis. I own khakis. I own dirty bucks too. Cool people wouldn’t be caught dead in dirty bucks. I don’t think cool people face their cans. That means you shelve cans with the labels facing forward, just like they do in grocery stores. An askew label in my pantry gives me a headache. Most advertising is aimed at cool people, except for two-pound, bacon cheeseburger ads. Cool people don’t pig out. Cool people have cool watches. Cool people are always late. I don’t own a watch. I am never late. I am always early. Cool people are never early. Cool people are always on the phone. I am never on the phone. The coolest song about cool people is the one goes, “You had one eye in the mirror as you watched yourself gavotte.” I always thought she was saying “as you watched yourself go by.” Cool people never would have thought she said that. I wonder if it takes more time and energy to be cool. Maybe. Maybe it’s cool not to be cool. Juno thinks Bleeker is cool, and about all he does is eat Tic Tacs like there is no tomorrow. Cool people would never say “like there is no tomorrow.” Are you old enough to remember when cool young men pushed up their sleeves? On their sport coats? One of them was on the Late Show and Letterman reached over and unpushed them. It was perfect.

We pick on people who aren’t cool. It’s human nature, unfortunately. If you aren’t in, you’re out — and that’s when things can get tricky, all the way up to bullying. If you’re masculine-feminine or feminine-masculine, good luck. It’s 2013, but we still pick on people for all kinds of reasons. There is no such thing in the real world as live and let live. If you were to see me in a bookstore, you would never guess what I do. I like that. I don’t look like an artist at all. I look nondescript, which isn’t cool. Most of the artists I know who look like artists aren’t very good artists. But they look cool. Many of them smoke. Smoking raises their coolness quite a bit. I don’t have a speck of jealousy. Now and then I have wondered what it would be like to be Cary Grant. It passes. I have never encountered swooning. Or glamorous women palming me their phone number. I do have one story. When I was in college I was invited to audition for “The Dating Game.” I still don’t know why I was invited. I remember standing there next to the mailbox and looking at the postcard. It had my name on it, and the day of the audition. I looked around and shook the card. No one pranked anyone back then. It was real. I visualized myself sitting there and sounding like Navin R. Johnson, cat juggler. Smith continues on Page 20

In addition, the development will bring a source of water for neighbors whose wells are running dry. But the 12,000-home project’s benefits go beyond water-consciousness. Consider some positive economic ramifications, as found by the firm Development Research Partners in a 2010 analysis: • Sterling Ranch is expected to create about 1,000 construction-related jobs per year throughout the entirety of the buildout process, which is estimated to last 20 years or more. Then there are the permanent jobs: at least 9,000 of them. • The economic benefit of construction activity is projected to be more than $400 million. At buildout, the community will be a driver of at least another $400 million of economic activity each year. And there are more reasons to like the project. Among them: • Sterling Ranch will bring new schools to the area, which will be utilized by children from neighboring areas like Roxbor-

ough. • Nearly 40 percent of the sustainable community will be set aside for open space, wildlife and parks. It will also feature more than 30 miles of trails. • It will include health care facilities, retailers and sports complexes that will be a convenience for residents and neighboring communities. • Sterling Ranch has devised an emergency-management plan, one lauded by the South Metro Fire Rescue District, and the construction of new roads will facilitate traffic into and out of the development. • Its density is not out of line with other communities in northern Douglas County. Perhaps as important as anything is that thriving Douglas County, which has become a prime location for employers and their workforce, is in need of more places to live if it is to continue to grow. Highlands Ranch, for example, is near buildout. The time has come for this story to include the development of Sterling Ranch.

Stillness, quiet rejuvenate soul I had three unplanned days off recently. Back spasms brought my busy schedule to a screeching halt. The Lord was serious when he inspired the words that King David wrote in the 23rd Psalm, “I will make thee lie down in green pastures.” I even had to find a replacement for a wedding I was to officiate. The older I get, the more I recognize that these times often precede specially blessed, extra-productive times. They set me up for success. That’s hard to believe for those of us who have lived by the motto, “The harder I work the luckier I get.” In his book, “Margin,” Dr. Richard Swenson illustrates the necessity of restful times. Imagine how difficult it would be to read a book with no margins — no white space, he writes. When every inch of a page is filled with words, all the way to the edge, reading is difficult, stressful and tiring. Many people live with no margin in their lives — every waking moment of every day is filled with activity and stimulation. I sometimes get stuck in that pattern. But, what is “margin”? Not all recreation qualifies as margin. The stress of vacation is different than work and often worth the effort, but too often it is far from restful. The vacation experience was enjoyable but little more than a diversion. Too often, summer vacations are not an experience of re-creation of the soul. In order for a person to experience re-creation there needs to be stillness and quiet. Eugene Peterson, the author of “The Message,” a paraphrase of the Bible, once said, “A busy mind never thinks deep thoughts.” I heard this years ago when I was learning the art of stillness by visiting a Catholic monastery in Conyers, Ga.

quiet retreat, whether it was for a half-day or a day and a half, was a welcome sabbatical. My brain activity calmed down so my thought process was more thorough and focused. Every week our churches invite people to rest and experience re-creation. Come and sit still, take a deep breath, think introspective thoughts, worship an awesome God and discover how much of your burden He wants to remove from your shoulders or how He will help you carry it. Tap into His resourcefulness for your needs or His gift of new opportunities. In a variety of ways, the churches speak the message of Jesus, “Come all you who are weary and heavy burdened and I will give you rest.” Cultivating the discipline to come and be still, quiet and listen helps us incorporate the experience into our daily lives. In my slower, restful, injured mode I meditated, prayed more and felt more deeply. Surprisingly, unpleasant circumstances often produce the opportunity for stillness. The white space between jobs can be a painful time of fear and need, but it can also be a time to listen, think and get ready for a new chapter of life, a new idea Hettinger continues on Page 20

School chef aims for transformation n

Morse brings passion, experience to Nutrition nableServices program

pace, moreBy Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com

s, rebe a Chef Jason Morse believes he’s oringwinning what was once an uphill battle to change students’ eating mer-habits. He’s also winning a perd bysonal battle. and The Douglas County School litateDistrict’s executive chef, who’s . had a lifelong struggle with otherweight, in January hired a personnty. al trainer and so far has dropped that40 pounds, two shirt sizes and six be-inches around his waist. and “I was a fat guy because I used lacesto sit on the couch,” the 41-yearandsold said. “I think it’s horribly hypocritical for me to preach wellness o in-and sound decision-making and ch. not be of that same practice.” Morse now has added exercise to a long list of passions, and attributes the country’s childhood obesity epidemic not to red meat or high-fructose corn syrup, but inactivity.

“You want obesity to go away? Get kids moving,” he said. Morse and about 320 other employees make up Douglas County School District’s Nutrition Services, a department overseen by DCSD that is financially self-sustaining. A former restaurant and hotel chef and graduate of Johnson & Wales University, Morse started working in the food service at 14. “I absolutely love the chaos,” he said. Morse came to the district as part of first lady Michelle Obama’s “Chefs Move To Schools” program. Launched in 2010, it pairs chefs with schools to show children the benefits of healthy eating. The program inspired him to start a consulting business, and a partnership with DCSD that segued into his current post. “I went from making a couple hundred meals a day to now, what we do could potentially affect 64,000 students,” Morse said. “It’s crazy to see where we’ve come in two and a half years.” Morse and Nutrition Services director Brent Craig helped bring

students. The movement toward improved student nutrition is national, but he believes DCSD is among those leading the way. “I would say our program is a model,” he said. “We’re pretty heavily acclaimed. We’re not the only district doing it; we just are vocal in celebrating what we do. “We all fight the same fights. How do we get kids to eat more fruits and vegetables? How do we give kids more time at the table? How do we impact learning?” Until those questions are answered, Morse won’t rest. This summer, he’s brainstorming a breakfast program, the transformation of school snacks and the best use of school gardens. In July, he’ll lead a three-day boot camp on basic food preparation skills for Nutrition Services employees. The busy pace and endless quest for improving kids’ lives is a recipe for both professional and personal success. “I am the happiest person in the world to be doing what I do every day,” he said.

He learned students’ food preferences by preparing and offering samples to them. Nutrition Services sponsored light-hearted contests to increase fruit-andvegetable consumption and con-

Ewing leaves Castle Pines City Council Successor must be named by late August By Virginia Grantier

camp gave teachers opportunities to try physical-science labs that take few supplies. The second day of camp, teachers then wrote lab lesson plans. Eric Sonnentag, an eighth-grade teacher at Mesa Middle School, this day wearing a camp counselor shirt, said that for the camp, he redesigned labs he uses for elementary level. What he wanted the camperteachers to discover was they didn’t need a huge science kit, just a few simple items.

that the Douglas County School District is saying this is the new normal.” DCSD also foresees 150 new teaching positions for the 2013-14 academic year, bringing the total to about 3,600. Carson said that’s in part to fill positions lost to layoffs in previous years and accommodate a constantly growing student population. He credited the district’s ability to hire added staff “to our strong financial position.” Two schools — Mountain Ridge Middle and Sand Creek Elementary, both in Highlands Ranch — recorded no teacher turnover. Highlands Ranch’s Saddle Ranch Elementary — where parents protested May 30 after learning none of the teachers earned a “highly effective” rating — saw the highest turnover at 30 percent, followed by Franktown Elementary at 29 percent. The turnover rate would have been lower, Carson said, but for a high percentage of retirees. He attributed that to DCSD’s decision to phase out its severance program, which awarded departing teachers a lump sum of about $38,000. In 2012, 53 teachers retired. This year, the final year of the program, 101 are retiring.

“I know elementary teachers are really cramped for time,” he said. “What I hope is that they understand that science can be done quickly and you can give kids a lot of control.” Another lab had teachers trying to figure out how to get sugar out of bubble gum and then weighing it to see if it was lighter. Teachers interviewed said they figured out they could chew it to get the sugar out, and then took into consideration the additional saliva weight when weighing. Other teachers, in friendly competitions, were seen trying to design the best mini wind turbines that were able to spin and bring up the heaviest paper-clip load.

He brought to the council knowledge on how to streamline municipal services and strengthen the city’s financial stability, according to the city’s website. His primary objective was “to align the goals of the city with the Castle Pines Metropolitan District, providing the most efficient and financially viable services to citizens.” In addition to serving on the Metro District Board, Ewing served for 15 years on the Plum Creek Wastewater Authority Board.

“That clearly upped the retirement numbers artificially,” Carson said. “We took the money we saved from phasing that out and put it back into the compensation program for the teachers … back into teacher salaries.” Carson acknowledged the evaluation system is a work in progress, but believes the new figures prove it didn’t significantly impact teacher turnover. “We understand the rating system is new and will continue to evolve,” he said. “We will certainly work with folks on that. But there’s no indication of major discontent from that.”

Sex assaults on children in news, but not new High-profile cases High-profile cases shed light on longtime problem By Ryan Boldrey

rboldrey@ourcoloradonews.com Sex assault on a child by a person in a position of trust is nothing new. Not in Douglas County, not anywhere else in the U.S. However, dating back to last summer, there have been four high-profile cases making their way through the 18th Judicial District Court in Castle Rock, involving three Douglas County School District teachers and a Highlands Ranch youth pastor. All four men in question — ranging in age from 26 to 41 — have been charged with or already pleaded guilty to some degree of inappropriate sexual contact on teenage children under their supervision and guidance. Deputy District Attorney Chris Gallo, who specializes in cases involving crimes against children for the 18th, has been the lead prosecutor in all four cases. What may be most disturbing, he said, is that for every high-profile case, there are a dozen other cases that he prosecutes involving these types of crimes. “We’ve had a ton of others where we have charged a person in a position of trust who wasn’t a (leader) in the community,” Gallo said. “Whether it was a neighbor, an uncle, a stepfather, this abuse happens across economic lines, across social lines.” And while there appears to be an inordinate number of these crimes surfacing in the county lately, neither Gallo, District Attorney George Brauchler, nor Douglas County Sheriff’s Detective Mike Duffy sees an indication that there are more of these types of crimes per capita now than before. “I think in part, the stigma is slowly being taken away from this,” Brauchler said. He emphasized that more children who are victimized are seeing that the courts are not always going to side with the adult, and with that, more victims are feeling empowered to come forward. “What I would hope the community takes from this,” he said, “is that we fight these cases maybe a little more aggressively than some of these other communities.” Duffy, one of five detectives on the DCSO Special Victims Unit that focuses

on Internet and sexual assault crimes against children, also pointed to the county’s population boom as a factor in more cases turning up recently. “Increase in population is always going to increase your numbers,” he said. “The more schools you have, the more chances you have for these types of crimes occurring. It’s purely statistical.” That said, Duffy agreed that this is far from a recent problem in Douglas County. “I think that there is an increase of reporting (by victims) and an increase of attention being paid to the problem,” he said. “There’s been a bit of a culture change.” On average, Duffy said, the DCSO Special Victims Unit juggles anywhere from 10 to 20 cases at a time. Depending on whether the abuse is ongoing or has ceased, an investigation could take days or months to complete.

Disclosing takes time

While more victims have been coming forward in recent years, there are many still hiding in the shadows, and sometimes it can take years to speak out. Gallo said he has encountered adults who have come forward and disclosed things that happened to them in the 1970s, people who now have children of their own, who are finally ready to talk about what they experienced 40 years ago. “We are becoming more aware of the world we’ve always lived in, and that’s an ugly thing,” he said. “But it’s better to be aware of it and try to protect people than say, `we live in this shiny beacon of a community and no child molesters live here.’ There will always be ugliness, but only when you are aware of it can you do something about it.” Knowing how to handle the situation if your child comes forward to you or someone else after being sexually assaulted is also an important thing, Duffy said. “If you think your child has been victimized by any kind of inappropriate sexual behavior, do not handle it yourself, contact us and let us handle it,” he said. “There is still a little bit of a culture out there that these cases are impossible to prosecute, but we will work very diligently to investigate the case and advocate on their behalf.” Duffy said it can be tough on parents if their children disclose to someone else,

but he said it is very commonplace, especially in familial cases, that children do not want to hurt their parents by telling them. “It can take years before a child feels comfortable coming to their parent, and that is not always a reflection of the parents,” he said. “It is just a difficult thing to talk about. Even in the greatest atmosphere, it often takes time before a child is ready.”

Hope for recovery?

The Colorado Sex Offender Management Board reports that as of April 1, there were 15,848 registered sex offenders in the state, 1,400 of whom are currently participating in the state’s intensive supervision program. Of those, said Colorado state probation analyst Angela Weant, 46 percent are successfully doing everything that is asked of them in their probation, and most of the probation offenses that are occurring are minor infractions. While it is not unusual to see a repeat offender reported on in the news media or to see a first-time defendant who committed multiple offenses before being caught, Weant said in her experience the extreme majority of offenders in Colorado do not repeat. As a former probation officer who carried a caseload of 80 sex offenders, she said only once did she have someone “fall off the wagon and slip up.” “It’s the ones you don’t know about that are out there operating, being secretive and manipulative, that are grooming their victims to withhold information, that you have to worry about,” she said. “They are premeditating their crimes for years and years. “The ones in the system are the safer ones. There is a lot of stigma for the people that have been convicted, as well as financial burden and upheaval. A lot of them have to move because if they have kids they aren’t allowed to be around them anymore.” Weant will be the first to tell you that you can’t change the mindset of a sex offender overnight, and Gallo agrees. “It’s tough,” he said. “You have to totally restructure the way people think. There are people constantly breaking themselves of that lifestyle and, relative to what they did, they don’t need to be in prison for the rest of their lives. Yet there are others, where the gravity of what they did is so significant, you’re not going to ever change that.”

in Douglas County

The faces behind the cases in Douglas County’s biggest sex assault trials: Frank Lavoie: The former Mountain Vista High School English teacher and wrestling coach was arrested and charged with three felony counts of sex assaults on a child by a person in a position of trust in July 2011. Lavoie, 31 at the time of his arrest, was tried in September 2012, and the result was a hung jury. He avoided a retrial after reaching a settlement March 15, in which prosecutors dismissed all three felony counts after he agreed to plead guilty to the promotion of obscenity to a minor. Lavoie was sentenced in May, and agreed to register as a sex offendLavoie er, was placed under the state’s intensive supervision program for sex offenders and was ordered not to have contact with anyone under 18, including family, until deemed appropriate by his therapists. Richard Johnson: The former Rocky Heights Middle School teacher and Rock Canyon High Johnson School basketball coach was arrested in November 2012 for the alleged sexual assault on a former female student. Johnson, 31 at the time of his arrest, pleaded not guilty in June to 30 felony counts, including sexual assault on a child by a person in a position of trust, sexual exploitation of a child and enticement of a child. He is set to Martini begin a four-day jury trial Nov. 5. Timothy Martini: The 26-yearold Douglas County High School teacher was arrested in February for two felony counts of sexual exploitation of a child and one charge of contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Martini, who is no longer employed with the district, is set for a preliminary Capranelli hearing on Aug. 1. Matt Capranelli: The 41-yearold former Highlands Ranch youth pastor at Mountain View Community Church was arrested in November 2012 for sexual assault on a child by a person in a position of trust. Capranelli is scheduled to be arraigned on eight felony counts July 8. As a condition of his bond, he is not allowed to spend unsupervised time with three of his children, ages 6, 11 and 12. — Ryan Boldrey, rboldrey@ourcoloradonews.com

CASTLE ROCK POLICE REPORT Would-be thief thwarted

A 43-year-old Castle Rock man reported June 10 that someone had logged into his credit card account and bought a $262 Samsung Galaxy Tablet But the victim made sure the thief didn’t get the tablet. The victim noticed the charge on June 10 while checking his Key Bank account. He also noticed the thief ordered the Tablet from Walmart, and that the thief had set up an “in-store pick up,” according to the police report. The victim said he called Walmart and

canceled the order, and also contacted the Walmart in Alexandria, Va., where the item was coming from, to ask the store manager to keep an eye out for the person if an attempt was made to pick up the item. Walmart and Key Bank are working to get his money back, according to the police report.

Medicine stolen from cart

A 61-year-old Sedalia man reported that $450 of prescription drugs were taken from his unattended shopping cart June 18 while he was in the electronics section looking for

SUMMER PACE

DVD players at Walmart, 133 Sam Walton Lane. The prescription bottles were later found empty in the women’s restroom at the back of the store, police were told in an email from Walmart Loss Prevention. The store had a video of a woman coming from the electronics department with a cart, but the video was of poor quality, according to the Castle Rock police report.

Cash taken at rec center

A 19-year-old Castle Rock man reported that $200 in cash had been taken from his

wallet mid-afternoon on June 12. He had left his wallet in an unsecured men’s room locker at the Castle Rock Recreation Center, 2301 Woodlands Blvd., while he was swimming. A 16-year-old male who was swimming with him reported he was also missing money, $5, from that same locker, and told police he “had noticed a juvenile in the corner of the locker room who was acting ‘weird.’” But he didn’t remember what the juvenile looked like, and the juvenile had left prior to the police officer’s arrival, according to the Castle Rock police report.

Abandoned puppies on road to recovery Law enforcement still soliciting leads in incident By Ryan Boldrey

rboldrey@ourcoloradonews.com Four of the five puppies found abandoned in a trash can at Highland Heritage Park in May are recovering well in foster care and just weeks from adoption. The two male and two female shih tzu mixes that were still alive when found at the Highlands Ranch park are quickly coming into their own at Douglas County Animal Control Officer Caitlyn Cahill’s Bennett horse ranch. Cahill, who wasn’t working when the puppies were discovered May 21, brought them home a few days later after her mother offered to help nurse them to health. After weeks of being syringe-fed every three hours around the clock, the dogs graduated to warmed-up, crushed dog food and milk this past week and just recently began drinking their water from a bowl. In addition, they have had quite the role model in Cahill’s 5-year-old Australian shepherd, Keyna. “She never had a litter of pups, but she has naturally taken to them,” Cahill said of Kenya and the puppies. “We’ve noticed in the past that she has some really good mothering instincts with the horses and the cats. She really took a liking to them.” The puppies, which were estimated to be between three and seven days old when they were found, are each beginning to show off their individual personalities, Cahill said. There’s Gus Gus, the go-getter of the group, who has been the first to do everything and consistently underfoot. There’s Brutus, the cuddly runt of the litter. There’s Lilo, the loner. And there’s Bridgett, the playful one of the bunch, who likes to wrestle. Douglas County law enforcement is still asking for help in finding those who are responsible for abandoning the puppies,

Celebrating German Traditions and Culture!

The four surviving puppies who were found abandoned in a trash can are recovering well at the home of Douglas County Animal Control Officer Caitlyn Cahill. The puppies will be ready for adoption in a few weeks. Courtesy photo and Sgt. Erica Dalton said the perpetrator would likely be charged with felony aggravated cruelty of animals. “We have had a couple leads, but they have been dead ends,” Dalton said. “This is definitely still an open investigation. One of the puppies died a needless death.” Crime Stoppers is offering a reward of up to $2,000 for any information leading to an arrest, and the reporting person can remain anonymous if they desire. If someone has information, they can contact Douglas County Animal Law Enforcement at 303660-7529 or contact Crime Stoppers at 720913-7867 (STOP). Cahill said the department hopes to be able to use this “unfortunate incident to educate pet owners and prevent something like this from happening again.” “There are so many opportunities available for people who don’t want to have a litter of puppies or don’t want to keep the dogs for one reason or another,” she said. “Neutering and spaying are always a great option, and you can always take unwanted animals to a shelter. We have a long list of resources we can provide if people don’t know where to turn, too.”

Suspect misses hearing, held by Adams judge

Attempted-murder defendant isn’t returned hadto Douglas County

wim- A man charged in the attempted murder miss-of a police officer in Douglas County did andnot appear in court for a crucial hearing, n thebecause he is now being held by a judge ctingpresiding over a separate case in another t thecounty. had David Vasquez, 24, of Federal Heights, l, ac-was expected to appear in Douglas Count. ty Court June 26 for a preliminary hearing alongside alleged co-conspirator Clifford “CJ” Galley. The two men are accused of leading authorities on a high-speed chase from Castle Rock to Parker in February. Investigators say Galley, the driver, rammed police vehicles and fired several shots at pursuing officers after they attempted to arrest him on a warrant for assaulting an officer. Vasquez, who was transported to Adams County in June for a hearing in a separate case, was ordered held by Judge Vincent Phelps. When his public defender, Tina Tussay, realized on June 25 that Vasquez was not in his Douglas County jail cell, she alerted County Court Judge Susanna Meissner-Cutler and prosecutors in the case. Jay Williford, deputy district attorney for the 18th Judicial District, said there is no reason why Vasquez should be held in the other case because he is Douglas County’s prisoner and has been held in the county jail since his February arrest. He was transported to Adams County on a writ, which is standard procedure for prisoners who have pending cases in other jurisdictions. It was not clear at press time what charge Vasquez faced in Adams County. Meissner-Cutler ordered Douglas

County Sheriff’s Office deputies to retrieve Vasquez from the Adams County jail on the afternoon of June 25, after it was discovered that there were no plans to return him for the June 26 Douglas County preliminary hearing, in which much of the testimony was expected to surround Vasquez’s alleged involvement in the police pursuit. But the deputies were turned away by Adams County, prompting Meissner-Cutler to request help from her chief judge, who she said would not act on her behalf. Meissner-Cutler said the “inconvenience” was “quite astonishing” and she has never heard of a prisoner not being returned. Williford pointed out that it is typical for Adams County to retrieve and return a prisoner within the same day of the hearing. Meissner-Cutler said she could not imagine that Phelps would order Vasquez held in Adams County if the judge was aware of the more serious allegations involved in the Douglas County case. She reviewed the minutes of his last hearing in Adams County and said she does not see where Phelps ordered Vasquez held. Galley is scheduled to appear in Adams County court next month, and Williford and Meissner-Cutler both voiced their concern that he would also not be returned. Galley, 23, spoke up during the June 26 hearing and said he does not want to be held in Adams County either. Meissner-Cutler suggested withholding Galley, but later said it would be unfair to “play ball” like Adams County. Meissner-Cutler said if Adams County is unwilling to release Vasquez to the custody of other courts, then he will miss three upcoming hearings in other jurisdictions. Vasquez has two active cases in Adams County, and one each in Broomfield County, Jefferson County and Douglas County. The preliminary hearing was rescheduled for 9 a.m. July 24 at the Robert A. Christensen Justice Center in Castle Rock.

Parker Water joins WISE project First deliveries for district will start in 2016 By Chris Michlewicz

cmichlewicz@ourcoloradonews. com The Parker Water and Sanitation District has signed an agreement that will send an average of 1,200 acre-feet of water from Aurora to Parker each year. Parker Water joins nine other members of the South Metro Water Supply Authority that have signed on to WISE, or the Water Infrastructure and Supply Efficiency agreement. The June 13 approval by the PWSD board of directors adds another source of water for the area’s long-term needs, said district manager Ron Redd. Parker Water pulls much of its water supply from the Denver Basin Aquifer, but it also captures an average of 5,000 acre-feet annually off Cherry Creek. The WISE agreement will have Parker piping 12,000 acre-feet of recycled water from Aurora and Denver every 10

years for an indefinite period of time. Water rates will likely go up 1 percent to 2 percent incrementally because of WISE, although any increases will not occur until a thorough rate analysis is conducted, Redd said. The results of the analysis will be released in mid-2014. The PWSD will start receiving the first trickles of water in 2016 and get full delivery of 1,200 acre-feet starting in 2021. The district hopes to use an existing pipeline along the E-470 corridor to transport the water and is in the process of negotiating with the East Cherry Creek Valley Water and Sanitation District. If an agreement is not reached, the district would have to build its own infrastructure at a steep cost. The Pinery Water and Wastewater District, along with a handful of smaller south metro districts, announced earlier this year that it had purchased 500 acre-feet of water through WISE. Parker Water needs 20,000 acre-feet for full build-out of the Town of Parker, the Ridgegate development in Lone

Tree, and portions of Castle Pines. It is still searching for an additional 6,000 acre-feet. The supply coming from Denver and Aurora is water that has been used and treated. The district will again reclaim the water, meaning the average of 1,200 acre-feet coming in each year will actually measure close t0 2,400 acre-feet, Redd said, adding there is a possibility that Parker Water might purchase more WISE water in the future. In addition to bolstering its water supply, Redd says working with the two largest water providers in the state “opens up possibilities to work with them on projects in the future.” Rueter-Hess Reservoir, which the PWSD built for storage, contains around 6,000 acre-feet. By the time the new water treatment plant off Hess Road opens in 2015, the reservoir will contain 15,000 to 20,000 acre-feet. It has the capacity for 72,000 acre-feet. An acre-foot, depending on the region and conservation efforts, is generally enough to serve a family of four for a year.

How to find the right internship R

ecent college grads have found the job market to be somewhat underwhelming. Gaining the attention of a prospective employer is never easy, and it’s even less so when the economy is struggling. One of the ways current students or even recent graduates can make themselves more attractive to prospective employers is to find the right internship. Internships are not always easy to get, and many of them don’t pay. But students who find the right internship often look back and recognize that their internship was their first step toward a rewarding career, and a step that provided valuable insight into their chosen field. To find the right internship, consider the following tips. Work with your school. Whether you’re in college or you’re that rare high schooler looking for an internship, lean on your school for direction and advice. Colleges and universities have career centers that can help you gain an internship. They can assist you through access to job listings and by providing advice on crafting resumes and cover let-

ters or tips on how to interview. In addition to your school’s career center, speak to professors in your desired field and seek their advice. Many professors likely have experience in the field outside of the classroom and might even still work in the field, be it full-time or as a consultant. These professors can point you toward job opportunities or give you advice on what prospective employers are looking for from an intern.

Start early. It’s never too early to start looking for an internship. In fact, many companies hope to have their internship positions filled well in advance. For example, if you’re looking for a summer internship, begin your search no later than January and continue that search throughout the semester. In addition to starting early, don’t just seek summer internships. Some companies make internship opportunities avail-

able year-round, so you might be able to get one that coincides with the school year, even if you had a previous internship with a different company during the year. Internship experience is invaluable, and the more of it you can gain the more attractive you are likely to be to potential employers after graduation. Do your homework. Chances are you’re working toward a degree in a specific field.

Research the leading companies within that field and learn about their internship programs. Visit each company’s Web site and peruse their job listings.

Such sites might have internship listings, but searching through them can feel like looking for a needle in a haystack.

Less than 50% travel required.

Do some networking. You might not have an expansive network of associates to tap into, but that does not mean you should go it alone. Talk to your parents to see if they or someone they know has heard about any internship opportunities in your chosen field. You might also be able to network via your school’s career center, which likely has an alumni-networking service that enables you to contact past graduates currently working in your chosen field. In some instances, these alumni-networking services can be an internship gold mine, as past graduates might prefer to hire current students from their alma mater as opposed to applicants from other schools. Competition for internships is often steep, and that’s especially so when the economy is struggling and even recent graduates are hoping to land internships. But students can employ several strategies to find the right internships and take their first steps toward rewarding careers. ■

Visit Denver spokesmodel Rich Grant also picked up one of the simple straw chapeaus on Wednesday. “I can’t swear that it’s made me smarter, but it’s the smartest looking hat I’ve ever owned,” Grant said. “I wore it while giving a three-mile walking tour to the visiting Japanese travel writers, and was met everywhere downtown with smiles, and compliments on what a `smart’ looking hat it was. I won’t leave home without it!”

Animals, owners receive diplomas Ceremony marks completion of Freedom Service Dogs training By Tom Munds

tmunds@ourcoloradonews.com There were a lot of smiles, quite a few tears and even some excited barks during the June 22 Freedom Service Dogs graduation ceremonies at Hampden Hall in Englewood. “This is a big day for Lori, Lola and I,” said Bill Schmitz, referring to his wife, Lori, and her service dog before the ceremony. “Lola, our service dog, will be a huge help to us. Lori has multiple sclerosis and Lola is always right there to pick up anything she drops. Also, the dog has her own portable phone that, when it rings, Lola picks it up and takes it to Lori. She is very much a part of our family.” He smiled and added that Lola even has her own shelf in the refrigerator. “The shelf is stocked with bottles of water,” the Arvada resident said. “When Lori wants a bottle of water, she tells Lola. The dog opens the refrigerator door and gently takes out a bottle of water and brings it to Lori.” Bill added the family has been Freedom Service Dogs supporters. He said there was an appeal for donations to cover the bills so a dog could have needed surgery on her front joints. The family donated to the project and the dog that received surgery turned out to be Lola. The family has provided a weekend foster home for dogs in training, and Bill has picked up rescued dogs from shelters and brought them to the Englewood Freedom Service Dogs facility. The graduation ceremonies for the Schmitz family and Lola was also a special occasion for Michael and Sheri Folsom, owners of Englewood-based Cowboy Moving and Storage. “I have always had dogs and we have too because we love them,” Michael said. “We met the people from Freedom Service Dogs a few years ago when they moved into Englewood. We donated some moving services to help them, learned about what they

We have included FSD and their dogs in many of our commercials.” It takes about eight months and costs about $25,000 to train a Freedom Service Dog. The couple said they admired the work of Freedom Service Dogs, wanted to help them with their mission and, this year, they decided to cover the entire cost of training a dog. “The dog we sponsored was Lola and it was a perfect fit when she was teamed up with Lori,” the Sedalia resident said. “It is so great to see Lola and Lori together and all the joy and help the dog brings. Words can’t do justice to the feelings we have when we see Lori and Lola together.” Sheri said they like the work Freedom Service Dogs does and they also like the fact that FSD rescues dogs from shelters so they won’t be put down but can be trained to help others. She added she’d like to challenge other companies to sponsor the training of a Freedom Service Dog. “Of course, all rescued dogs aren’t able to complete the FSD training,” she said. “But, when a dog isn’t able to complete training because of things like a love of chasing but-

terflies or squirrels, Freedom Service Dogs makes sure to find a good home for the animal. As a matter of fact, one of our dogs is Farley, a dog that wasn’t able to complete the FSD training.” Wisconsin resident Kevin Foster and his dog Brinley also received Freedom Service Dogs diplomas during the ceremonies “This is a big day for my dog Brinley and I,” Foster, a Vietnam veteran, said before the ceremony. “I read a book called `Until Tuesday’ that talked about how much a service dog could help people like me who suffer with PTSD. I signed up with FSD, was on the waiting list and now, almost a year later, Brinley and I are graduating.” Foster said he has already spent a lot of time with Brinley. “Being with Brinley is calming and the dog has already kept me from sliding backwards in my mind to those really bad times,” he said. “We graduate, then head to the bus station for the 25-hour ride back to Wisconsin.” Chuck Flynn, another veteran, had similar comments about what having a Freedom Service Dog named Mader has meant to him. “I was getting treatment for PTSD at the Veterans Administration hospital and a doctor suggested a service dog might help me,” the southeast Denver resident said. “My big problems are intense flashbacks and nightmares. Since Mader came into my life, she comforts me, helps me keep calm, and the flashbacks and nightmares happen lest frequently and when they do, they are less intense. Mader is truly a blessing to me and I appreciate all the hard work that went into training her so she can help me.”

Hunka-hunka Broncos wide receiver Eric Decker and his equally stunning fiancee and country pop singer Jessie James tied the proverbial knot June 22 in Castle Rock. The bride posted a handful of photos from the celebration on her Instagram account thejessiejames. The ceremony took place at St. Francis of Assisi in Castle Rock followed by the reception at the impressive Castle Cliff Estates, according to Internet reports. The cute couple (I’ve met them and they are cover girl and guy gorgeous) met through a mutual friend and struck up a phone relationship. The newlyweds have jumped on the reality show bandwagon by letting the E! cameras roll to capture their lives and loves on the new show “Love and Other Contact Sports” debuting on E! late summer. The series will “chronicle the sexy young couple’s road to the altar as they juggle careers, relationships, family and more,” according to The Hollywood Reporter. Decker reportedly received permission from Broncos executive vice president of football operations John Elway before selling his soul to basic cable. “He came in and talked to me about it,” Elway told reporters via www.MaxDenver. com. “I gave it my blessing.”

Restaurant RIP

When former Rocky Mountain News and Nation’s Restaurant News reporter Dina Berta walked away from her career covering the restaurant industry, she jumped out of the frying pan and into the

fire. After a 17-year journalism career, Dina opted to join her husband, Frank, in a new culinary venture — Frank’s Kitchen — at 2600 High St. in Denver’s Whittier neighborhood. Doors opened on May 2011, and closed on June 24. This is what the couple posted on Frank’s Kitchen Diary: Goodbye and thank you. The end happened as quickly as the beginning. Just three years ago Frank was sliding a check across a table to our future landlords and we were in the restaurant business. On Sunday, sitting on the patio of Frank’s Kitchen, the buyer’s accountant was sliding a check over to Frank. It was a down payment to our asking price. And just like that, we closed our restaurant. For all our stunned customers, friends and supporters let me tell you how we got here. I was not lying when you came in and asked how is the business and I said doing well. After about a year and half it was paying for itself. It probably would have turned the corner in the third year, especially if we obtained a liquor license. It was in the pursuit of a beer and wine license that we came to a realization about who we are and the kind of life we wanted to live. The alcohol licensing was going to take six months. We probably weren’t going to be able to serve beer and wine until November. Our lease is up in December. We needed the warm spring and summer months to recoup the investment in the license and product. That meant we would have to sign a new lease, most likely for five years. The thought of another long-term lease made us both sigh, heavily. A little too heavily. That’s when we knew. We have worked extremely hard and for long hours day in and day out since we opened. Frankly, we’re tired and did not want to keep going. Some people have the restaurant business in their blood. We had to admit we did not. This was no longer what we wanted to do with our lives. We listed the restaurant for sale on Craigslist.com. Joe Van Dyke, aka “Jammin’ Joe,” a blues guitarist and restaurateur from Virginia was our first serious response to the ad. Jammin’ Joe has owned and or operated several restaurants in his life. He carved out a pretty good reputation for barbecue back east and wants to do the same in Denver. He liked our restaurant and accepted our price. He plans to open in early July. Thank you everyone who supported us in our endeavor. We appreciated it more than you know. And thanks to our awesome employees. A few are staying on with Joe. May God bless all of you. Shalom, Dina (and Frank)

Billups’ camp focuses on big picture Highlights downplayed in favor of ‘real game’ By Jim Benton

jbenton@ourcoloradonews.com Chauncey Billups spent many hours during his younger years in basketball camps. He now has his own camp, the Chauncey Billups Basketball Academy, which was held June 24-27 at the Parker Fieldhouse. There were close to 500 youngsters, ages 6 through 17, who participated in the camp, according to director Marcus Mason. Billups, the former standout at George Washington High School and the University of Colorado, and five-time National Basketball Association All-Star, was present at all sessions, and NBA players Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan were featured on the first day of the camp. “I grew up going to camps in my neighborhood of Park Hill,” said Billups. “I know my camp is a lot different from the one I went through.” There were basketball drills and scrimmages, but also agility training, plus plenty of fun with Billups’ money shot at the end of each of the two daily sessions split up by age. “We do agility, footwork drills,” said Billups, who was inducted into the National High School Hall of Fame June 27 during the National Federation of State High School Associations annual meeting in Denver. “People don’t equate that to the sport. That is a very big piece of the sport. We never did anything like that at the basketball camps I went to.” Billups would gather groups of players and talk for several minutes, and all the campers seemed to pay close attention. “With the little ones, some of them are so small it’s almost like day care,” said Billups. “What I wanted them to get out of the camp was an appreciation for basketball. Then one day, they’ll fall in love with the game. It’s just fundamentals at this point. “The older kids are at an age where they were here because they really like basketball. You want to get them to the point where they can learn the real game of basketball. Not highlights, but the real game of basketball. That’s what I tried to get across

NBA standout Chauncey Billups gives pointers to Ronnie Harrell, 17, of Denver, during Billups’ basketball camp at the Parker Fieldhouse June 26. Photo by Chris Michlewicz to the older kids.” That was sometimes difficult. “Yeah, they think it’s all fun and games,” explained Billups. “They come, show up and just shoot the ball up as opposed to working hard, being a good teammate and being a fan of your team and not just yourself. There are a lot of different layers to this game and I don’t think they realize.” Billups, the NBA Finals Most Valuable Player in 2004, also showed campers the reality of the NBA: that if you make big shots, you are rewarded. He puts money on the floor and gives selected players a chance to pick up the

money if they make the shot. “The kids love the money shot,” admitted Billups. “My nickname is Mr. Big Shot. I wanted to give all the kids a chance to kind of know what it feels like to make the big shot, so we made up something called the money shot. “I have $5, $10 or whatever it might be and put it on the spot. There is a team that is picked out. When we blow the whistle and say go, they do whatever they want to do and we pick a team, basically the loudest, most obnoxious or most creative. “Every person on that team has a chance. If the first guy makes the shot and takes the money, I put more money down for the next

guy. It’s a favorite of the kids. It’s not an easy shot for the little kids but a shot they can make. It’s a little farther than a three-pointer for the big kids.” Cody Brown, a student at Thunder Ridge Middle School in Aurora, benefited from the camp. “I learned a lot,” he said. “I’ve been going to camps all around Colorado. I learned how to get my shot off better and play better defense. The agility was important. Speed and agility is the basics of basketball, and then strength comes along if you are in the post. We almost won a chance for the money shot but we didn’t. You have to be the craziest to get a chance.”

Chaparral High gets new athletic director McKinstry led Lewis-Palmer basketball team to five Final Fours in five seasons By Danny Summers

dsummers@ourcoloradonews.com Russ McKinstry loved his positions as athletic director and boys basketball coach at Lewis-Palmer High School in Monument. But he wasn’t so thrilled with the 40mile commute each day from his home in Parker. Last week, McKinstry shortened his drive to two miles when he accepted the athletic director job at Chaparral in Parker. “The commute had taken its toll on me,” McKinstry said. “My wife is a paralegal and has a great job at the Denver Tech Center. We had considered moving to Monument and buying a home there, but that would have meant a long commute for her. We were between a rock and a hard place. “But beyond that, it felt like it was time to move on.” McKinstry, 51, said he has no plans to coach high school basketball again. “I think that has run its course,” McKinstry said. “I might pursue something at the collegiate level if the right opportunity comes up.” McKinstry replaces outgoing Chaparral

Russ McKinstry will lead the athletic department at Chaparral High School. File photo athletic director Gary Thompson, who is taking the same job at Grandview. McKinstry’s second tenure at LewisPalmer (he was also the school’s boys basketball coach in the early 1990s) was marked by back-to-back 4A state championships in 2012 and 2013 — including a 34game winning streak.

His teams went 114-23 over five seasons, including five consecutive Final Fours. The 2011-2012 squad, led by current University of Colorado forward Josh Scott, went 27-1. “As a coach he knows the game really well,” Josh Scott said. “He really cares about all of his players. That’s one of the reasons

he’s so successful.” This year’s team — minus Scott — was 25-3, including a 51-40 victory over Valor Christian in the state championship game in March. Scott’s younger brother, Jordan, led the way for the Rangers. “Coach Mack was a great coach,” said Jordan Scott, a four-year starter who graduated in May. “His game management was great and he always knew how to get the most of his players.” McKinstry, a two-time cancer survivor, has enjoyed a long and successful coaching career that began in the 1980s. He reached the 400-victory plateau in December and now has a lifetime record of 418-171. “I’ve been very lucky,” McKinstry said. “Those victories are the result of a lot of great players and fine young men.” McKinstry started his head coaching career at Copeland (Kansas) in 1988. From there he moved to Limon, Lewis-Palmer, Greeley Central, Smoky Hill, Chaparral (Phoenix) and back to Lewis-Palmer in 2008. “It’s amazing how fast things go by,” McKinstry said. Lewis-Palmer principal Sandi Brandl said that a search for a new athletic director is underway. A replacement could be in place by mid July. McKinstry said he will help in the transition.
