Stay aware, legislators tell businesses GOP lawmakers speak to local alliance By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com State leaders urged Douglas County business owners to stay aware and get involved in issues that could impact them as lawmakers take their seats at the state Capi-

tol for the new legislative session. Democrats have regained control of the Colorado House, and maintain their majority in the state Senate, and Republican members of the Douglas County legislative delegation said that could impact business owners. Four of them were on hand for a Douglas County Business Alliance-sponsored legislative kickoff session held Jan. 3 at Lone Tree’s Sky Ridge Medical Center. “The bills you need to be cautious about

aren’t going to be the ones grabbing the headlines, so it means you really do have to pay attention,” outgoing House Speaker Frank McNulty said. “They’re the ones that are going to have the highest impact on the economy.” McNulty urged business owners to “show up at the state Capitol,” testify and bring supporters when issues of concern are on the table.

Coffman to focus on veteran assistance Congressman sees difference between self, fellow Republicans By Ryan Boldrey

rboldrey@ourcoloradonews.com A 20-year veteran of the U.S. armed forces, Congressman Mike Coffman (R-Aurora) plans to focus much of his efforts in the new congressional session on veteran affairs. The recently re-elected representative for Colorado’s 6th District said that he intends to focus on issues ranging from transition into the citizen workCoffman force to how the country can better take care of veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder. “I think the real concern is in looking at the unemployment rates for veterans, particularly those coming out of Iraq and Afghanistan, and how it is significantly higher than the general population,” Coffman said. One way Coffman hopes to defeat this is by working from the inside out. Near the close of the last session he introduced a bill

MIKE COFFMAN’S VIEWS On fiscal resolution: “I like the tax piece, the fact that most of the Bush tax cuts remain permanent for the vast majority of American people I thought was a win. On the negative side, it wasn’t at all balanced with cuts, and we are, in fact, going to spend even more money now. We’ve got to be serious about the deficit and the debt and this bill certainly wasn’t serious about it at all.” On proposed high-capacity magazine ban: “Personally, I feel that there ought to be a limit. I think this notion that there shouldn’t be any regulations at all is wrong. That said, the question about high-capacity magazines should be decided by state legislatures, because there will inherently be varying standards for different parts of the country. I feel that 100 rounds is too much but that is an issue that must be debated and decided by the Colorado General Assembly and not in Washington, D.C.” that would force the Department of Veterans Affairs to hire qualified veterans before hiring from the outside. “Only about a third of the people that work (in the VA) have actually served in the military,” Coffman said, “and I just think that there’s a culture there that’s not responsive to the veterans. … In my experience, people who have served in uniform are much more likely to understand the challenges of those who are in the military and are getting out of the military.” It’s Coffman’s military background that also has him in the midst of a movement to

restructure some recent cuts to the Department of Defense. “I think we need to go forward with these cuts,” he said, “but I think they could be done in a way that doesn’t compromise our national security. There was no attention to detail paid to these cuts. I think that they thought it would never happen, so the notion was `let’s just do an across-the-board cut to the Department of Defense.’ “It just isn’t rational. We’re cutting programs that are essential and giving the same weight to programs that are essential to our national security to programs that probably should have gone by the wayside a long time ago or have little value.” Coffman said he fancies himself different from many members in his own party in that a lot of Republicans don’t support any cuts to defense spending. Some of the things on the table in Coffman’s eyes include: troop levels in Europe; whether U.S. allies should be more involved in cost-sharing; whether we should retain some of our permanent overseas bases; are there functions being handled by active-duty military that could be handled by the reserve at a cheaper cost; and are there weapons systems that are being developed that aren’t critical. “I’m looking at being very specific in coming up with cuts that I think will realize the same dollar amount but will not compromise our security,” he said.

After months of public outreach, town halls and community surveys, the C-470 Corridor Coalition expects to decide by March or April how to pursue expanding the busy freeway corridor from Interstate 25 to Kipling Street. “I think overall people are saying there is something that needs to be fixed when it comes to the congestion,” said Jack Hilbert, a Douglas County commissioner who serves as chair of the coalition’s policy committee. According to the coalition, eastbound travelers from Kipling to I-25 face delays of more than 11 minutes during the morning rush hour, and westbound travelers are delayed as much as 18 minutes in the evening. Growth along the corridor is expected to increase by more than 30 percent over the next 20 years. Beginning with a series of telephone town halls in July, the coalition has been busy presenting three options to citizens and area business leaders: tolling any additional lanes and keeping the existing lanes free; tolling all the lanes, old and new; and raising property or sales taxes to pay for additional new lanes. “The one thing that has come across clear,” Hilbert said, “is that there is just no way in the world you could go back and toll existing roadways. No matter what is decided, existing (lanes) will remain free.” Hilbert said the coalition is leaning toward a decision to toll any new or additional lanes to pay for construction and maintenance. He said this will be discussed heavily at the coalition’s January and February meetings, when they go over results from a recent telephone survey conducted by Hill Research Consultants. “If we go that route, construction could start in early 2014, if not sooner,” he said. “If we pick a financing option that requires a vote (raising taxes), that obviously pushes it out further. But I don’t think those two options are what I am hearing citizens say. I’m hearing citizens say `yeah, fix it, but we want someone else to pay the taxes.’” Raising taxes was a popular option in the early town hall surveys, but according to Hill’s survey only 9 percent of people were in favor of increased property tax and 42 percent favored increasing sales taxes. Despite the higher numbers, 42-41, in favor of sales taxes over tolling one new lane, the report suggested that there was not sufficient support to secure passage in an election as required by TABOR.

January 10, 2013

New year feels like all-clear We’d come, my family and I, to the 16th Street Mall to watch fireworks paint a final glittery statement to the departing year against the black backdrop above Denver’s skyline — or, depending on one’s perspective, write a vibrant, joyful opening line for a new script. The reverberating beat of up-tempo techno music pulsed through the lighthearted crowd, bundled in jackets and scarves as frosty puffs of breath rose and briskly dissipated in the winter air. A loud cheer echoed through the concrete canyon as rapid-fire, brilliant booms signaled the display’s end. Just like that, one more cycle completed, another set in motion. “A new start,” 18-year-old Devin Williams of Aurora said. “New beginnings,” agreed Yekatena Breez, 24, of Russia, here visiting friends. “A chance,” said Kevinia Pickford, also 24, of Denver, as she gazed into the sky, “to start up right again.” For many, New Year’s Eve is more than a reason to celebrate. The older I’ve grown, the more I’ve come to appreciate the underlying reflection that threads through the traditional revelry. The clock is ticking away my minutes; I want to make sure what’s left counts. Although I consistently reassess and set goals, the transition from the old year to the new one provides a concrete place to shed pieces of my life that didn’t work and keep those that did, reshuffle priorities to accommodate evolving experiences, or to just plant some new

dreams. The opportunity to be able to alter course — if needed or wanted — at a moment that provides a fresh and dependable starting point seems comforting. “Every new beginning,” the Roman philosopher Seneca said, “comes from some other beginning’s end.” The tradition of renewal is age-old. New year celebrations date back some 4,000 years to the ancient Babylonians, who believed the first new moon after the day in late March with an equal amount of sunlight and darkness ushered the start of a new year. For centuries, civilizations celebrated New Year’s Day at different times of the year around festivals of religious significance. They celebrated much like we do, with music and dance and festivity. While most of the world today marks Jan. 1 as the start of the new year, some countries still follow their own calendars. Depending on the moon’s position, the Chinese New Year, for instance, falls anywhere between Jan. 21 and Feb. 20.

Traditions are as colorful and unique as the fireworks that light up the night. Spaniards eat 12 grapes before midnight, each representing a month that will be either sweet or sour. Danes jump off chairs to symbolize leaping into the new year. The Thai throw water on each other because they believe water washes away bad luck and makes people fresh. The dropping of the Times Square ball in New York City has become an iconic countdown worldwide of the year’s end. Regardless of the ritual or superstition, sociologists say new year’s celebrations are a way to let go of the past in a spirited, carefree manner before buckling down to start anew. Continuous psychological rebirth. Monica McLaughlin, 48, of Highlands Ranch, describes it as a reset button. “Maybe you didn’t accomplish everything you wanted to,” she said. “Reset. It’s not `I have to go all the way back to the beginning. It’s where can I start from?’ … Basically, it’s to own your life as you can.” Her good friend, Winston Murrell, 58, understands that sentiment. He is a tall man with a silvery stubble flecked across his cheeks and a navy blue New York Yankees beanie covering his head. He teaches middle school. Eight years ago, a heart condition almost ended his life. “Everything is a second chance,” he said. “I’m living on borrowed time.” So, he looks to the challenge of the un-

known, which comes full circle every New Year’s Eve. “You look at what you have come through in the past year and the promise of the future is before you. The future,” he said, “is unwritten.” Like a clean sheet of paper waiting for the words of a story. Devin Williams has some ideas for his: Get straight As in college. Be successful. Live a good life. So does Kevinia Pickford, on this night working as a crosswalk officer ushering hordes of fireworks spectators safely across the street. “My goal is to graduate from college this year, go into my nursing career and then start planning for school for my 2-year-old son.” We headed home, the burst of fireworks already fading in memory, thoughts of tomorrow already scurrying through my mind, the tick, ticking of the clock interrupted by the excitement of possibility and purpose. American businessman David Weinbaum has this to say about new ventures: “The secret to a rich life is to have more beginnings than endings.” I like that: Perpetual storylines of hope and promise. Constant rejuvenation — just like an old year giving way to a new one.

LEAP assists needy with heating costs Douglas/Elbert Task Force can also lend people a hand

Conveniently located in the Safeway Center SW corner, I-25 & Castle Pines Pkwy

By Ryan Boldrey

rboldrey@ourcoloradonews.com In an effort to assist struggling Colorado families with heating costs during the dead of winter, the state’s federally funded Low-Income Energy Assistance Program has already aided 52,642 qualified families since Nov. 1. LEAP, which helped pay heating bills for more than 101,000 Colorado families a year ago, has thus far given assistance to 380 households in Douglas County, 146 in Elbert County and 5,518 in Arapahoe County this winter. “We know that there are a lot more eligible people in the state,” said Aggie Berens, LEAP manager for Colorado Department of Human Services. “Sometimes, for varying reasons, people don’t apply, though. Often, people feel like they can make it on their own. But we want them to know, it’s here as a resource to use if you meet the eligibility requirements.” For an individual to qualify, they must have a pre-taxable income TASK FORCE SEEKS of no greater than $1,397 a month.

The task force offers clients the ability to take advantage of their food bank once every 30 days and free medical treatment on the first and third Wednesdays of the month for everything but emergency services.

Housing director takes Peace Corps post Osborn leaves Douglas County with new programs, foreclosure support By Rhonda Moore

rmoore@ourcoloradonews.com She is a world traveler who was raised on a farm, is the only one of eight siblings to move out of Kansas, and she rose to the executive ranks not on ambition, but on the conviction that she could simply “do the job better.” And when Bonnie Osborn assumes her duties in Southeast Asia as a Peace Corps volunteer, she will do so with the hope that she can make a difference in the world and the awareness that she’ll never be the same again. It is an adventure she intends to relish. Osborn came to Douglas County in 2008 as the executive director of the Douglas County Housing Partnership, following her six-year stint as executive director of the Summit County Housing Authority. She was a single mother of two grown children, one who is a “nuclear guru,” she said, in Los Alamos and another who lives in Parker and spends a good deal of her time worrying about her mother. A born adventurer, Osborn has climbed Mount Kilimanjaro, rode a bicycle cross-country and, on three occasions, scaled the famed Mount Rainier.

And as she prepares to go overseas to serve in the Peace Corps, her daughter is the only voice against the proposition. “My daughter is scared to death. She’s concerned about my safety and what adventures I might seek out on my own `in some god-forbidden place,’” Osborn said. “She’s a worrywart. It’s her problem, not mine. Everyone but my daughter thinks it’s absolutely wonderful, a perfect opportunity for me to be who I am.” Who she is, is a person with the ability to make a difference, she said. Her goal in Southeast Asia, where she is slated to serve in one of the countries formerly under the Soviet Union, is to contribute in a significant way to a country’s success. With her background in the business world, Osborn’s task will be to help the countries she serves transition to the Western culture of commerce and trade. “I’m being sent there because I have a true feeling for what it’s like to compete in a westernized world, in the global business community,” she said. Osborn’s feeling for competition is driven by a desire to contribute from within a team environment, a setting she prefers to working on her own. The victories and defeats experienced as part of a larger whole have a more farreaching impact than anything accomplished as an individual, Osborn said. “I like having a huge problem and having a group of people all working on that problem,” she said.

ABOUT DIANE LEAVESLEY

Bonnie Osborn, right, conducts her last meeting as executive director of the Douglas County Housing Partnership in Lone Tree on Dec. 18. Photo by Courtney Kuhlen “It’s the best part of a family; it’s the closeness, the huge celebration when you have successes. It’s the shared celebration.” Osborn came to the county with the same leadership skill set that helped launch her career as a telecommunication executive: as a leader whose first goal is to see to it that the people she works with are the best they can be. Entering her post in Douglas County in 2008, the year the recession hit the housing market, Osborn launched initiatives in housing partnerships that ranged from the shared equity program, to help first-time homebuyers with down payment assistance, to the county’s foreclosure and reverse mortgage counseling. Among her proudest accomplishments was forming relation-

ships with area developers to encourage voluntary contributions to the housing partnership. Her goal for her successor, Diane Leavesley, is to continue to build on those successes. “You want the number of people you’re able to help be your indicator of success,” Osborn said. “I think it’s very important that we move from reliance upon taxpayer dollars to private partnerships with development communities and the real estate and mortgage industries. “I hope to get (Leavesley) infused with this energy to say `it’s picking up, we can get them involved with us and us with them’ and get out of this reliance on governmental entities.” Leavesley on Jan. 1 assumed the post left vacant by Osborn’s

Diane Leavesley is the new executive director of the Douglas County Housing Partnership. Leavesley joined the Colorado Department of Local Affairs-Division of Housing in November 2010 as its portfolio manager. Her prior experience included serving as the president of Mercy Loan Fund where, for 12 years, she was responsible for directing the lending activities, loan servicing and resource development for this national affordable housing loan fund. Before Mercy, Leavesley had 14 years of commercial real estate experience including mortgage banking and appraisal. Some of the appraisal work was as the owner of a commercial real estate appraisal business serving the Denver area. Leavesley received her master’s in business administration from the University of Denver with an emphasis in real estate and finance and has an undergraduate degree from the University of Massachusetts. Leavesley’s community involvement includes serving as the first chair of the board of directors of Housing Colorado!, a member organization for affordable housing education, information and advocacy. She has also been a board member of Community Housing Development Association (CHDA) and on the finance committee of Mile High Community Loan Fund. She served on the Douglas County planning commission and as president and national delegate of Commercial Real Estate Women. From 2006-2008 she was a member of the board of directors of the Denver branch of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City. Source: Douglas County Government departure.

Term-limited Boand starting new chapter By Rhonda Moore

New Year. New You.

Steve Boand entered the political arena by accident, spent $25 as a write-in candidate to win his first election and leaves his

post as Douglas County commissioner with a change of career in mind. And, according to the term-limited commissioner who earned a reputation as the devil’s advocate among his peers, he “feels great” about the coming changes.

Boand began his political years about 1986, shortly after he and his wife relocated to Castle Rock, when he awoke one morning to find no water in his tap. He and his neighbors were told that the well serving their neighborhood had failed, Boand said. Boand As a geohydrologist, Boand’s talks with the mayor led to an invitation to serve on the town’s utility commission and eventually culminated in a plea to run for town council. “I didn’t want to do it. We had a new baby and a new house,” Boand said. “After the date had closed to get on the ballot, three of the five councilmembers came to my home and I said I would run as a write-in candidate. “That’s how all this started,” he said. “It was an accident.” Water remained high on the list during Boand’s terms in office, eventually surfacing as the top-of-mind issue during his outbound dialogues with incoming commissioner Roger Partridge. While preparing for his departure, Boand had a two-hour briefing with Partridge to review issues throughout the district, neighborhood by neighborhood. During his time in the county job, another issue gained Boand’s attention and is set to keep his attention for the near future:

emergency management. Boand was instrumental in developing Douglas County’s emergency management response plan, which was adopted by the county’s municipalities. The plan secured county funding in case of a disaster and provided guidelines for cooperation among agencies, said Art Morales, Castle Rock Fire Department chief. “Boand did all the legwork of ensuring all of the drafts were completed, got feedback and kept the project moving,” Morales said. “Projects like this can take forever to get done and he stayed on task to get it moving forward.” The experience also sparked a passion in Boand for emergency management, a profession he is pursuing with FEMA certification training to gain credentials secured by fewer than 100 people nationwide, he said. “It feels great. It’s a new chapter in life,” Boand said. “I built a new body of knowledge within myself the past four years in emergency management and I’m looking forward to applying that.” Partridge took office Jan. 8, replacing a commissioner whom peers came to know as the one who asks the hard questions. “He was always the devil’s advocate voice on any issue,” said Commissioner Jack Hilbert, District 1. “Even if he supported it, he always wanted to see that discussion happen. (Boand) advocated for always having a continuing discussion or dialogue on issues.”

t RTD introduces smart-card system First phase affects those with EcoPass, CollegePass

Highlands Ranch Herald 5 LET US CELEBRATE WITH YOU Have a wedding, anniversary, engagement, birth and special occasion coming up? Share it! Colorado Community Media invites you to place an announcement to share your news. Go to ourcoloradonews.com/ celebrations for package and pricing information. Deadline is 10 a.m. Tuesdays the week preceding the announcement.

By Tom Munds

tmunds@ourcoloradonews.com

The Regional Transportation District ushered in the New Year by launching the first phase of its smartcard program. Holders of an EcoPass or a CollegePass can now use a smart card that changes the way those passengers let RTD know they rode the bus or light rail, and how RTD captures fare and ridership data. Before the smart card, pass holders had to always carry their pass with them and be ready to show it if asked. The smart card is a reusable plastic card the size of a credit card containing an embedded chip that instantaneously processes information. An electronic reader validates the card, updates information on the card, defines the correct fare and validates a transfer. RTD had volunteer smart card ambassadors like Pauletta Tonilas at bus stops and light rail stations to help anyone who had a question about how to use the new device. Tonilas was at the Englewood Light Rail Station for the morning rush hour Jan. 3 and 4. She said many people had no questions as they used the card. Commuter Kevin Kabance swiped the reader with his smart card but ation wasn’t sure it worked. But Tonilas said rship the yellow light at the top of the reader le at showed the card had been read. part“I’m not sure about the card,” Kabance said. “It seems like a good idea but I would rather have seen the turnstile system other cities use to make sure no one is not paying the fare.” He said he sort of likes the system but he had always carried his pass and had it handy if a fare checker requested to see it. “I guess this could be easier,” he said. “I just am not sure about the

system so I guess I’ll have to wait and see.” Brent Fallsworth, a Littleton resident who is a CollegePass holder, said he will be getting a smart card and, from what he has read, it will easier for him to use RTD. “I ride light rail to and from classes at the Auraria Campus,” he said as he waited for the train at the Littleton station. “From what I am told, I will just tap the card on the reader and I’m good to go. It’ll be better than always having to have my pass in easy reach. That’ll be nice.” Scott Reed, RTD public affairs officer, said smart cards either have been issued or will be issued to all EcoPass and CollegePass holders. He said some individuals like Fallsworth will receive their smart cards when college classes resume. The new card system means bus riders with either the EcoPass or Col-

legePass will tap their smart card against a reader on the bus as they board. Light-rail passengers traveling somewhere other than downtown Denver will select the fare category of local, regional or express, and tap the smart-card reader located on or near the light-rail platform. Light-rail passengers traveling to or within downtown won’t have to select a fare category. The smart-card program is only being used by the holders of an EcoPass or a CollegePass, but that will change in the second phase of a two-phase rollout of the smart-card system. Reed said the next phase — affecting other riders with all other types of passes — will kick in next fall.

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com Teenage girls often face life-changing decisions, and a new program aims to guide them toward the right ones. The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office and Douglas County School District will hold the pilot session of an overnight retreat called “The Power of Positive Relationships.” The retreat is scheduled from 5 p.m. Jan. 18 to 3 p.m. Jan. 19 at the district’s new Outdoor Education Center, located between Palmer Lake and Larkspur. The first session is free, but limited to 15 girls. “We feel girls need to know how

to be empowered, how to keep that self-esteem,” said Douglas County Sheriff’s Deputy Ann Walton, who leads the Youth, Education and Safety in Schools (Y.E.S.S.) program. “Once that is lowered, it leads to a lot of these problems we have with relationships. We want to cut it off before it even gets going.” The program is not designed to instruct, but guide, Walton said. It will include restorative circles, small group activities, problem solving and time for self-reflection. Events Friday evening also will include a dinner and campfire, with breakfast and lunch on Saturday. Parents are invited to join their daughters for lunch and a presentation Saturday. “We want the girls to be able to figure out what it means to be empow-

ered and enlightened,” Walton said, “and what it’s like to walk in someone else’s shoes. We want them to think, `Hey, if I send this nasty text message or post this nasty picture on Facebook, what is this other person going to feel like?’, to realize that the thing I’m doing has an effect on everybody around me.” If the pilot weekend is successful, the program likely will become a regular event. Future programs could focus on teenage boys as well, Walton said. “But right now, with the programs I’m doing in the classrooms, a lot of the issues I see are coming from (female) relationships and self-esteem issues,” she said.

Shoplifting not just kid stuff Police say organized crime is extensive, expensive problem By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com The 21st-century shoplifter isn’t a teenage girl slipping earrings into her purse, but often a sophisticated network of computersavvy, highly organized professionals who make retail theft their full-time job, Lone Tree police say. “It’s huge and it costs us a lot of money,” said Acting Lone Tree Police Chief Ron Pinson. “We’ve had groups come in that have stolen up to $10,000 worth of merchandise. These are people that are often doing this for their living.” Professional thieves often travel from mall to mall, and city to city, stealing everything from jeans to laptops. The stolen merchandise is then sold, often on such wellknown, trusted sites as eBay or Amazon. Such high-dollar thefts occur about once a week, Pinson said, and those who engineer them are endlessly innovative. “They do come up with new schemes,” he said. “Sometimes the law is a little bit behind them.”

They range from the bold — those who use metal-lined shopping bags that pass undetected through security systems — to the subtle. Recently, thieves used credit card numbers obtained from banks that had not yet assigned the numbers to individual cardholders. “That was a new one to us,” Pinson said. Lone Tree Police and other agencies recently helped nab a group from China that had used fraudulent credit cards to purchase about a dozen computers. The authorities halted them at Denver International Airport just before they were to leave the country. Lone Tree officers work with area retailers to try to manage the problem. The department operates a substation at Park Meadows mall, and stays in close contact with the mall’s security staff. Additionally, most stores employ their own security — or loss prevention — staff. Despite all those measures, shoplifting is not a crime that’s likely to go away. “For more than 30 years I’ve been in shopping centers, shoplifting has always been an element of retail,” said Pamela Schenck-Kelly, Park Meadows’ general manager. “There are the young kids who are learning their life lessons and the professionals that are really what leads to heavy shrinkage or the need for bigger markups. Today, it’s become part of doing business.

Liquor store bucks trend Owner says training, layout, security deter thieves By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com In the ongoing battle against shoplifting, one Lone Tree business owner says his store’s on the winning side. Lukas Liquor owner Larry Merfeld credits it to staff training, layout of the large Yosemite Street store and a $22,000 monitoring system. “Our theft problem in the store is significantly reduced from what it used to be,” he said. “I attribute our success to the fact we’re just more cognizant of who’s coming in the door, watching their mannerisms, their body language, how they’re dressed. We’re in an affluent area, so 99.9 percent of our customers look like they should be shopping here.” A store design that offers mostly unobstructed views of the merchandise also helps. “If you’re in a store and you’ve got high shelving and large floor stacks that block your vision, you’re creating an opportunity,” Merfeld said. “It’s far harder here than it is in other stores.” Merfeld also keeps bottles priced at $100 and up locked and separate from the rest of the stock. Finally, he invested about three years ago in an upgraded security system and has a close working relationship with Lone Tree police. “We have 32 cameras, and that covers every inch of the store,” he said. “If thieves think they’re going to be watched when they’re in here, they stop coming in.” Like all other retailers, Merfeld acknowledges it’s a never-ending problem. “Thieves will come in, they can tell we have cameras, and they’ll go ahead and steal,” he said. “It still amazes me.” It’s unfortunate.” The more sophisticated forms of shoplifting are known in the industry as organized retail crime. It’s become so prevalent a group of retailers, law enforcement agencies and prosecutors formed the Colorado Organized Retail Crime Alliance in early 2012. In May, Gov. John Hickenlooper signed a bill that strengthens existing laws in an effort to tamp down the activity. Losses attributed to organized retail crime are estimated at $15 billion to $30

billion annually, according to industry experts. The 2012 National Retail Federation’s Organized Retail Crime survey shows 96 percent of retailers surveyed say they’ve been victims of organized retail crime — the highest level in the survey’s eight-year history. The items most commonly coveted by thieves include designer fashions, cell phones, energy drinks, pain relievers, cigarettes, electric toothbrushes and high-end liquor.

DOUGLAS COUNTY COURT BRIEFS Retrial next for former coach

Frank Lavoie, the 33-year-old former wrestling coach and English teacher at Mountain Vista High School who is accused of having sex with a 17-year-old female student while employed at the school, is done for now with any scheduled motions hearings and will be back in court March 19 when his retrial is scheduled to begin. Lavoie sat through a weeklong trial in September but the jury could not reach a verdict. In the first trial, the accuser testified for nearly two hours about her relationship with Lavoie and four different instances where she allegedly had sex with him in 2009 during her senior year of high school. Lavoie admitted to having sex with the accuser, but stated he did not do so until after she had graduated and turned 18. This was the same story he gave about two other former students from Virginia who flew in to testify on behalf of the prosecution as character witnesses. A heated motions hearing before the first trial centered on whether the witnesses from Virginia would be allowed to testify and whether details about the use of Lavoie’s personal credit card by the accuser would be admissible. While each attorney lost a key battle in the respective motions, those two items have not been put back on the table for Judge Paul King to reconsider. “That hearing happened within the context of the first trial so we won’t do it again,” said Deputy District Attorney Chris Gallo. “We have to play by all of the previous rules, unless the judge reconsiders any of them himself. Neither of us has asked to have these rulings reconsidered.”

School basketball coach accused of sexually assaulting a female student, has been set for 1:30 p.m. March 4 in Castle Rock. According to Deputy District Attorney Chris Gallo, Johnson faces 30 charges, all involving one victim. The total includes 10 counts each of sex assault on a child by a person in a position of trust and patterned sexual assault on a child by a person in a position of trust, as well as five counts each of sexual exploitation and enticement of a child. Johnson, who was arrested Nov. 13, is free on a $50,000 bond. According to a letter from Andy Abner, principal at Rock Canyon, Johnson left the school district last spring for personal reasons unrelated to those allegations.

Onetime pastor has court date

Matt Capranelli, the 41-year-old former youth pastor at Mountain View Community Church in Highlands Ranch, who was arrested Nov. 13 on eight felony charges, including sexual assault on a child by a person in a position of trust, will make his first court appearance Jan. 31 in the 18th Judicial District Court when the District Attorney’s Office takes his deposition. Capranelli allegedly sexually assaulted a female youth group attendee. He is free on $50,000 bond.

Driver in double fatal to appear

Thomas Garrity, 74, of Bellevue, Neb., will make his first court appearance Jan. 16 in Douglas County following a fatal accident that took the lives of two construction workers Nov. 20 at the intersection of C-470 and Broadway. The Nebraska man is facing two counts of careless driving causing death, a Class 1 misdemeanor. Both he and his 72-year-old female passenger were treated for minor injuries and released the day of the accident.

Neb., n. 16 There are new year’s acci-resolutions by the dozctionens floating around. Some C-470will make a difference and some will float away on the unts breeze. But acquiring a new ass 1skill or nugget of knowledge r-oldstays tucked into one’s bagor in-gage and might make a difent. ference in how the next new year looks. Arapahoe Community College, with its three campuses (Littleton, Parker and Castle Rock), is right around the corner for many readers and offers hundreds of opportunities—within walls and online. A look at the new Community Education catalog reveals a few new offerings, but a visit to Arapahoe.edu opens up a world of possibilities. For community educa-

line or in person. New under “Personal Development” is Vicki Nelson’s “Acceptance — the Transformative Power of Non-Resistance,” which runs from 6:15-8:45 p.m. on Tuesdays from Jan. 29-Feb. 5. What if you could eliminate a major source of daily stress? Littleton campus. Do you have a manuscript on a shelf, or partially complete on your computer? Consider “Beyond the Writer’s Closet: Progenitor” with Writer’s Studio chair Kathryn Winograd, where you can participate in writing and creating the 2013 version of The Progenitor, ACC’s award-winning literary magazine. Meets Jan. 24-May 9 at the Littleton campus. Or, consider Juliett Hubbel’s “Publishing Your Writing” for a broad-based path to targeting an audience and submitting a manuscript. Legal and professional steps are considered. Littleton campus, Jan. 22-

May 7. On another track: Consider “Beginning Handbells: How Do They Do That Anyway?” with the Smithtonian Handbell Ensemble, which readers may have enjoyed at the Winter Evening on the Farm in Littleton. This is a one-night session on March 21 from 6-8 p.m., Littleton campus. Prior experience not required. Receive your first pair of Ringer gloves. Perhaps you’ll be moved to seek a spot in a local handbell choir. “Foundations of Watercolor” with instructor/artist Marilyn Cassidy offers Part

I and Part II, depending on experience. Also offered in Littleton, it teaches various approaches and techniques in this tricky popular medium. Learn to control those edges. Part I runs Feb. 27-April 3 and Part II, which also welcomes beginners, runs Jan. 16-Feb. 20 at the Littleton Campus. Finally, there are five new one-night classes in interior design with Sharon Breay in Littleton, running from Feb. 5-March 12 on Tuesday nights. It’s the time of year to consider a fresh look in one’s surroundings.

8-OPINION

January 10, 2013

OPINIONS / YOURS AND OURS

Getting an early take on issues at the Capitol On Friday, as a group of editors, managers and the owner of Colorado Community Media met with legislators in the hallowed halls of the Capitol, it occurred to me how much change can be jammed into a short, little span. With the November election and the Democrats gaining control of both chambers, leadership in the House and Senate has taken on a decidedly different look in the General Assembly session that just started. For all intents and purposes, the same topics and concerns are likely to surface. The approach, however, I expect, will raise some eyebrows. And perhaps, some voices. Because I live and work in Republicanlandia, and travel back and forth between workplaces in Monument and Woodland Park via Ronald Reagan Highway, I often forget how evenly divided, and differently aligned, the state’s voters can be. The state’s tale is of two Colorados (though not always the same two) - rural and urban, Front Range and Western Slope, and Democrats and Republican, and so on. The lines are likely to be drawn over the expected issues:

• Legalization details for marijuana • Gun control measures • Death penalty • Increased school safety • Civil unions The fights will also occur in unexpected areas. We received hints of possible work areas during our meeting. House Minority Leader Mark Waller, R-El Paso County, said he plans to make higher education “an absolute priority.” Because education creates opportunity, he says, he will pursue efforts to establish merit-based scholarships and increase opportunity for technical training, and he thinks bipartisan efforts in these areas will bear fruit. We also met briefly with other Re-

publican legislators: Sen. Mark Scheffel, R-District 4; Rep. Cheri Gerou, R-District 25; Rep. Carole Murray, R-District 45; and their various communications directors and staff. Another area of concern is Medicaid and health care, which Gerou said “affects our two largest populations, children and the elderly” and will naturally be a hot topic. Waller also wants to address how returning veterans are dealt with as it relates to mental health, courts and the justice system. From the Democrats, Mark Ferrandino, D-Denver, who replaced Frank McNulty, R-Highlands Ranch, as House speaker, sees the focus this session being dominated by jobs and the economy. As his baby crawled around on the speaker’s conference room floor, he says he sees opportunity in helping businesses through “economic gardening.” He pointed to a jobs-training bill proffered by Rep. Pete Lee, D-District 18, and other efforts aimed at job training and reducing the skills gap. Ferrandino also cited K-12 education as being severely and seriously underfunded, and expects to tackle that, perhaps even

with bipartisan efforts. One of the most difficult jobs is going to be figuring out what to do after voters’ approval of marijuana for recreational use by adults. Rep. Dan Pabon, D-District 4, says he volunteered to serve on a 24-member, bipartisan task force that includes perspectives from health care, law enforcement and other government and non-government disciplines. And sifting though public policy decisions and recommendations regarding how to deal with issues related to potency, law enforcement, employee relations and more might be a serious test for the new industry. And then, of course, there is transportation, where a plan is in the works to free up nearly $300 million in development funds for road projects. As Rep. Max Tyler, D-District 23, and chair of the Transportation Committee, observed, “Everyone is the parent of a good idea.” Rob Carrigan is the editor and publisher of the Pikes Peak Courier-View and the TriLakes Tribune, Colorado Community Media publications.

Commitment is the watchword Happy new year! Did you make any new year’s resolutions this year? Are there any carry-over goals or resolutions left to conquer from last year? Or are you still basking in the wondrous feeling of accomplishment from achieving and exceeding your own expectations from last year? Whatever your situation may be, it is that time of year again to identify and pursue what it is we really want in this life for ourselves and for others. It’s time to stop being opportunistic, hoping that something good will happen for us or that someone will just hand us what we want most. It is time for us to become more strategic about our dreams and goals and actually make things happen for us instead of waiting for things to happen to us. The easy way out might be to say that this sounds like more philosophical rheto-

Bleepin’ blizzard, it was a big mess “Did he say 3 inches or 30 inches?” That’s what I asked myself on the way to the grocery store on Sunday, March 16, 2003. I was listening to the weather report on KOA. I bought groceries for 3 inches. Big mistake. I bought Diet Coke, angel hair pasta, spaghetti sauce, a bag of romaine lettuce, and some soft-baked chocolate chip cookies. It would be almost a week before I was allowed to go back to the grocery store. The dog and I took the groceries home. I did some schoolwork. It was my final semester of teaching and a week away from spring break, when I was going to meet select students in New York for my annual art museum tours. Then it was a hop, step and jump until school’s out, forever. By Wednesday it didn’t look like I was ever going to make it to New York because I couldn’t make it to the corner. It sure looked pretty at first. But it seemed unusually relentless. The last big blizzard we had around here came 21 years before on Christmas Eve 1982. About 2 feet of snow fell. That one caused a lot of inconveniences. But it was a junior blizzard compared to this one. If you were here then, you know that there were life-threatening situations, restrictions on driving, broken water pipes, and all kinds of human interest stories. By the time it was over we had close to 32 inches of snow. I had drifts that were 5 feet deep. I had to shovel a channel to the back yard to a little area that I had cleared for the dog. She didn’t always use the channel or the back yard. Clean up on aisle 2. I had enough dog food but not enough food for myself. It crossed my mind that I might have to develop a taste for dog food. In a particularly dark moment I thought I might have to develop a taste for dog. The sweetest sound I heard in days was a snow removal truck just a block away. They were finally getting to the side streets.

One lane, albeit sloppy, was opened, I made it out and bought food, and got a New York haircut at Great Clips. Most of the students had to re-book their flights. A few took red-eyes. But we all made it and when we arrived it was a delightful spring day. Some people were in short sleeves and shorts. The war in Iraq had started on March 20. I was against it, but like everyone else I felt it would be over swiftly. We watched highlights — or lowlights — in restaurants and bars, and then went to our museums. When I returned I saw that the 20-foot maple in my front yard had splayed. That was very sad. It had to be cut down. One of the snow-laden branches had damaged one of my yard sculptures. But that was not the worst. I smelled the smell of water and concrete, in the house. That’s a perfume called Trouble. I went downstairs and stepped into several inches of water, and watched the sump pump shoot water on the floor. The pipe had come apart while I was in New York. I lost record albums, family photographs and letters, documents, and artwork. It was devastating at the time. By now I don’t even remember exactly what I lost. It was life’s way of doing a de-acquisition for me. Craig Marshall Smith is an artist, educator and Highlands Ranch resident. He can be reached at craigmarshallsmith@ comcast.net

ric or feels like too much work. Well here is the deal, we can either attach our sail to someone else’s boat, tagging along on their dreams and goals, or we can navigate our own ship on the seas of our own destiny. And the difference-maker will be our level of commitment. Norton continues on Page 9

LETTER TO THE EDITOR The NRA’s courage-free contribution

The NRA’s recent question-free press conference was a ruse. As an angry nation focused on changing the NRA’s policies and lobbying efforts that help put assault weapons into the hands of mass murderers, CEO Wayne LaPierre was offering up instead an expansion plan. Rather than courageously facing the central issue of ending the public proliferation of military-style weapons, he launched into an eerily disturbing narrative about good guys facing down the bad, converting schools, and ostensibly other places

Agreement avoided cliff, but was sheer foolishness

The so-called “fiscal cliff” agreement written by the U.S. Senate last week, according to the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO), actually increases future deficits instead of reducing them. All of the Bush-era tax cuts were set to expire at the end of the year, and action had to be taken or taxes would automatically go up on everyone. However, I agree with the Denver Post editorial board, which said “the deal isn’t much of one at all.” No doubt, this agreement is far from being a balanced one. The CBO projected that the value of the tax revenue gained by ending the Bush-era tax cuts for individuals making more than $400,000 and couples earning over $450,000 will be dwarfed by the projected $4 trillion more in debt over the next 10 years that is also in the package. This is not progress and this is definitely not solving the problem. I supported the tax policy part because the Bush-era tax cuts had expired at the end of the year and I thought that the proposal was more than fair by making the Bush-era tax cuts permanent for the vast majority of Americans. However, the cuts needed to change the trajectory of our deficits and put us on a path where we could begin to reduce our dangerous debt levels were missing. The most disingenuous provision of the agreement was how a two-month delay in the spending cuts, previously agreed to in the Budget Control Act (BCA) of 2011, was paid for. The 2011 Act was the last time Congress had to approve an increase in the debt ceiling, and in agreeing to that debt limit increase Congress approved an acrossthe-board cut to spending if the “Super Committee” did not find a better plan. They didn’t. Across-the-board is a poor way to cut the budget because it gives the same here ail to their e our stiny. level

d

weight to programs that are vital as to ones that have little merit. I believe that the Pentagon is capable of making the cuts without hurting national security, so long as they can prioritize. The BCA does not give that option, and so I’m all for delaying the cuts while a better implementation is found — but only so long as the new cuts identified are still equal to the two months’ worth of cuts under the BCA that were postponed. Unfortunately the Senate used proverbial “smoke and mirrors” accounting gimmicks that equal the necessary cuts — $24 billion — only on paper. So while the deal does make permanent lower rates for most Americans, it not only does not address our over-spending problem, it retreats from previous efforts to do so. In addition, nothing was done to simplify the tax code, or remove loopholes and special interest giveaways. During my time in Congress I have advocated for specific and sensible defense cuts, supported a balanced budget, and voted against bloated government spending and waste. I was not able to support this bill, but I will remain committed to finding solutions to our revenue and spending problems. U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman serves the 6th Congressional District, which includes Aurora, Greenwood Village, Centennial, Littleton and Highlands Ranch.

Norton: Year’s goals focus on spiritual, professional and personal objectives Norton continues from Page 8

But isn’t that always the case? I mean, we sses get these great ideas and set our new year’s ned resolutions to improve our lives in some way or do more for ourselves and others. And then before we know it, convenience takes over for commitment, long-term f goals give way to our instant gratification. n. Commitment will be my watchword as boy I know that I have more to give, learn, do, and love in this world. As I prepare to steer d ierre my ship this year and to help me grow perani- sonally, professionally and spiritually, I am committed to do the following: num Personal growth: One of my favorite anchwebsites is www.candogo.com. OK, maybe it’s one of my favorites because I built the website. Even so, I am committed to spending just seven minutes each day watching five video clips that will have an impact on my day. Here is where I get my daily dose of motivation and inspiration in quick little sound bites. Professional growth: “The Sandler Rules: 49 Timeless Selling Principles and How to Apply Them” is a fantastic book. In addition to everything else I read, which is usually about one book per week plus the Bible and the newspaper and various blogs and columns, I will commit to reading one chapter each week and work on building upon that specific selling principle or skill. This book can be found at www.sandler.com

JANUARY SPECIAL

Spiritual growth: This will be a huge daily commitment and one that I invite you to join me in. I am starting a daily devotional reading, “The One Year Daily Insights.” It is a book written by Zig Ziglar and Ike Reighard and has 365 quick insights based on Scripture and tied to a motivational principle. I will be sharing my thoughts each day on Facebook, so please join me and share your thoughts and ideas as well. You can find the book at www.ziglar.com/shop or on Amazon and you can find me on Facebook to participate or follow along. If you can’t find me on Facebook or have a problem finding the book just send me an email at gotonorton@gmail.com and I will make sure we connect. As I set my course for the coming year I know that these three things will have a huge impact on my results and I will be absolutely committed to each one for the entire year. Commitment is my watchword. How about you? I would love to hear what you will do to navigate your life this year, the course you will set for yourself, and how you plan on making commitment your watchword for 2013 at gotonorton@gmail. com. When we know where we are headed, this really will be a better than good week.

He’s Up With People Mountain Vista grad gets new view of world By Ryan Boldrey

rboldrey@ourcoloradonews.com After graduating from Mountain Vista High School in 2011, Grant Hamilton didn’t feel he was quite ready for a four-year university. What he was ready for, though, was an opportunity to make the world a better place. So Hamilton, who had invested one year at Arapahoe Community College, decided to put his studies on hold and sign up with the Denver-based nonprofit Up With People, in attempt to “help bring the world together through community service and music.” Along with 99 other volunteers, representing 20 countries, he spent the last six months traveling through Massachusetts, Taiwan, the Philippines and Mexico, completing close to 200 hours of community service and singing in 85 shows. The journey provided Hamilton with the opportunity to visit places he says he otherwise never would have seen, along with a

huge dose of humility. “You really learn not to take anything for granted,” he said, “just appreciate what you have and be content. There’s always somebody out there who is worse off, but they could be the happiest person in the world. You have to realize that no matter how bad it gets, it could always be worse.” When he wasn’t performing community service or the group’s 13-song musical “Voices,” Hamilton, like his fellow travelers, spent time with his host families, learning the lay of the land in a way that only locals saw it. “It was really eye-opening,” he said. “One week you’d be staying with someone superwealthy and the next you’d be staying on a mat. … Honestly, the poor families are the ones you’ll remember the most, because they will give you everything they have.” A witness to extreme wealth and crippling poverty, Hamilton experienced what it was like not to have clean drinking water, electricity or plumbing. He went into schools and talked about anti-bullying, spent time with abused and neglected orphans in Third World countries, performed manual labor, and on stage performed songs filled with positive messages in multiple languages. “You get to a point where the people you are helping are helping you more than you are helping them,” he said. “I learned something new everywhere I went.”

He was so moved, in fact, that he leaves Jan. 10 for another six months. This time, he will head south to Georgia and Florida, before spending eight weeks in Europe, four weeks in Mexico and two weeks in Cuba. In addition to performing another 80-plus shows, he expects to do more manual labor, volunteer in senior centers, nursing homes, and schools, and help organize food pantries. Once he gets back in June, he will take some time off, and then plans to pursue a degree in political science. “I’ve always wanted to do something with politics,” he said. “I really just want to better the world and it gives me something where I know I can try to help do that.” Of course, if Up With People offers him a permanent staff position, he may put his studies on hold for just a little bit longer, he said, adding that the past six months have allowed him to grow more than he even thought possible. Up With People is open to international applicants between the ages of 17 and 29. For more information, visit www.upwithpeople.org. “If you aren’t sure if want to go to college, it’s a great opportunity,” Hamilton said. “You may learn more in one year of traveling than you ever would in four years of college. There are definitely things out there that you can’t learn from a book or a professor that you just have to experience. Plus, it looks good on a resume.”

Cowboy life celebrated in Golden Festival brings poetry, music, authentic grub By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com The Colorado Cowboy Poetry Gathering enters its 24th year of celebrating the cowboy way of life — romanticized and otherwise. It’s presented this year on Jan. 17-20 at the American Mountaineering Center in Golden, the re-purposed former Golden Junior and Senior High School, at 710 10th St. Performances will be at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday, plus matinees at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday and 10 a.m. Saturday. Cowboy Church is at 10 a.m.

Sunday. See the website for schedule of entertainers at www.coloradocowboygathering.com. This is the second year in Golden for this unique event, which spent 10 years at the Arvada Center and has been wandering to various venues since. Each show will be different. There is a special focus on cowboy poetry, an art form that grew out of long days in the saddle. Cowboys would gather around a campfire at night and entertain each other with tall tales and songs. Poets, Western singers and old-fashioned yodelers will spin songs and stories about the happy times and rough times experienced in life in the Old West — the West of legends, films and books. And they will look at contemporary life as well. Performers include: Eli Barsi, Sam DeLeeuw, Bill Barwick, John Schaffner, Skip

Gorman, Pop Wagner, Mike Blakely and Ernie Martinez. Also: Bary Ward, Liz Masterson, Jon Chandler, Yampa Valley Boys, Patty Clayton, Gary McMahan, Al “Doc” Mehl, Doris Daley, Chick Pyle. Some are local musicians who have appeared at the Littleton Museum over recent years. Families are welcome at these performances and programming is fashioned for kids age 8 and older, especially at themed matinees, where there will be stories of cattle drives and life on the plains. When the munchies strike, there will be cowboy grub served from the Authentic Chuck Wagon, owned by John Schaffner. Hours: 5-7 p.m. Friday, Saturday; 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Friday, Saturday, Sunday. Ticket prices vary, see website, or there is a super ticket for all six shows.

Hostetler makes his national touring debut in “War Horse.” He grew up in Glenwood Springs and received his MFA from the National Theatre Conservatory in Denver. “War Horse” is the story of a young man’s beloved horse who has been enlisted to fight for the English in World War I.

Jazz concert to crowd stage

Bevy of performers coming to Lone Tree By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com When the Colorado Jazz Repertory Orchestra sets up for its Jan. 18 concert at the Lone Tree Arts Center, there will be extra chairs lined up to include the Ken Walker Sextet, headed by wellknown bassist/educator Ken Walker. “The goal of our January concert is to both introduce audiences to the finest, swinging-est small ensemble around and to show that a big IF YOU GO band is made up of many “Essential Jazz” is at 8 p.m. small ensemJan. 18 at Lone Tree Arts bles,” said Art Center, 10075 Commons Bouton, who St., Lone Tree.

P OLICE O FFICER I NSTRUCTORS The Colorado Jazz Repertory Orchestra will play with the Ken Walker Sextet on Jan. 18 at Lone Tree Arts Center. Courtesy photo Lamont School of Music and a Lone Tree resident, also said: “We will feature Metro State University saxophone instructor Mark Harris on a Stan Kenton arrangement of a Gerry Mulligan tune for the entire CJRO. “We will also break down to just one or two folks for some intimate moments where we hope to show that jazz is about communication and, of course, spontaneity.” The Walker ensemble can be counted on for swinging hard bop, with some Stan Kenton and Maynard Ferguson favorites from the whole CJRO.

One of the joys of listening to — and watching — this group of musicians is that each one of them is a solo-quality artist who can also blend perfectly with the others. Bouton has assembled an orchestra of top jazz professionals. Many, like him, are university faculty members, while others freelance across the nation. Other CJRO concerts have been on Mondays, because that’s when these folks are most likely to be in town. One hopes the energy — and underwriting — will be available for this series to continue for future concerts.

Rockmount going strong

Rockmount Ranch Wear, the LoDo-based Western snap-front shirt maker and a favorite company of this column, has a lot to be thankful for in 2012 and is

moving forward with a big “yeehaw” in 2013. Country singer Dwight Yoakam wears Rockmount’s blue hombre stripe No. 690, a remake from its historic archives dating back to the 1950s seen here: www.npr.org/event/music/167532013/kcrw-presents-dwight-yoakam. Rockmount shirts have a large role on Fox Network’s “The Factor” winner Tate Stevens who wore a full range including various red plaids. Dennis Quaid wears Rockmount shadow plaids on the new CBS network hit drama “Vegas.” Rockmount shirts are also featured in ABC’s new show “Nashville.” The shirts worn by ce-

lebrities in movies, on TV shows and in concert are bought by the artists and production companies (no freebies, have you met Rockmount owner Steve Weil?). Rockmount does not pay for product placement whatsoever. All ties and scarves you will see at The Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo from Jan. 18 through Feb. 9 are by Rockmount. Also, the Calgary Stampede has a new design in the works for spring. In more Rockmount news, Cheyenne Frontier Days is arranging to exhibit the company’s historic collection of vintage shirts, accessories, advertising and memorabilia going back to the 1940s. The exhibit, Rock

Stars & Cowboys, chronicles 65 years of Western fashion history. It will be one of the first exhibits in the newly renovated Pioneer Museum on the rodeo grounds. As company founder and Western wear pioneer Papa Jack would say, “I’ve always believed we were never selling just the cowboy — we sell the romance of the West. That’s so much more.”

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com Amy Hollinger, a 22-year-old professional ballerina and teacher, was walking home after attending a dance performance in October and was struck by a vehicle, suffering severe injury to the left side of her brain. Immediate surgery, a medically induced coma and more than a month in ICU followed. She now is undergoing intense therapy to retrain in speech and mobility at a rehabilitation center. At 7 p.m. on Jan. 19, 15 area dance companies will join forces to put on a benefit dance performance at the Performing Arts Center at the Pinnacle Charter School, 1001 W. 84th Ave., Denver (home of Ballet Nouveau Colorado). Suggested donation is $20/ ticket, available at the door. Reserved seats are available: amy.hollinger.benefit@gmail. com or 720-432-7704. All proceeds will go to the family. This is a second benefit these compa-

nies have put on to assist Amy and her family with medical expenses. Companies involved include Ballet Nouveau Colorado, Colorado Ballet, Boulder Ballet, Dawson Wallace Dance Project, 7 Dancers, Lemon Sponge Cake Contemporary Ballet, 3rd Law Dance/Theater, Zikr Dance Ensemble, Frequent Flyers Aerial Dance, Apex Dance, Evolving Doors, Ballet Ariel, Hannah Kahn Dance Company, Cleo Parker Robinson Dance Ensemble and Ascential Dance Theatre Colorado. Hollinger was an active member of the large local dance community, and since her arrival in 2008 from the Kirov Academy of Ballet in Washington, D.C, she performed with Colorado Ballet, Dawson Wallace Dance Project, 7 Dancers and currently, Boulder Ballet. She has also taught at several places in the area, contributing to the community as she worked with students and dancers. A silent auction in the lobby will feature paintings and other artworks by Amy’s artist mother and prints by photographer Rachel Becker, who photographed these dancers during the first benefit in November.

Comedian headlines fundraiser in Lone Tree Event to benefit Friendship Circle By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com Comedian Mark Schiff will headline an evening of entertainment to raise funds for The Friendship Circle, a growing Lone Tree-based program that matches teens with special-needs youth in a unique, mutually beneficial partnership. Schiff will perform Jan. 12 at the Lone Tree Arts Center. In addition to Schiff’s act, tickets will inSchiff clude hors d’oeuvres, desserts and a silent auction. A full bar also will be available. The evening begins at 7:30 p.m. The Friendship Circle is coordinated through the Chabad Jewish Center. Schiff has appeared on Comedy Central, “The Tonight Show,” “Late Night with David Letterman,” HBO, Showtime and was a fea-

ture act at the Montreal Comedy Festival. He has guest-starred on “Mad About You” and “Empty Nest,” and was a writer for “The Roseanne Show.” “Mark Schiff is coming out from Hollywood to do this event,” said the center’s Rabbi Avraham Mintz. “It’s a really full evening, with a buffet, auction and other entertainment, and Mark Schiff, who is the highlight.” The no-fee Friendship Circle, started locally in 2011, pairs local teen volunteers with special-needs youth for in-home visits and fun outings. The Jewish Center coordinates it, but it is open to “Jews and nonJews alike,” Mintz said. “The special-needs community is, unfortunately, growing and is underserved,” he said. “There are a lot of services out there (for them), but one thing very visibly missing was companionship and friendship for the child. They’re just like anyone in their need for friendship.” Tickets for the evening are $54 per person or $100 per couple. The Center also is seeking event sponsors.

Stock radi-Where were you born? ar at Born and raised in Colorado! I was born in Denver, and grew ding up in the same house my father still lives in today. I most enjoyed , the the huge backyard where we would slip & slide and play croquet. and

How long have you lived in the area? My wife, Jamie and I are both 4th generation Colorado natives. We have lived in the South Denver Metro Area for 12 years. I know the area and real estate market extremely well. What do you like most about it? We Love Castle Rock, it’s the best place to call home. With the picturesque sunsets, great neighbors, beautiful weather, and great schools, it is easy to see why Colorado and its cities keep ending up on the lists for best places to live.

years. I worked full time in real estate from the beginning and started out right when the market was turning south. I worked hard and thrived. In addition from selling real estate, I have worked as a Vice President/Branch Manager in our Castle Pines Branch and I remain engaged in management at our largest office in the Highlands Ranch branch for RE/MAX Professionals. I have been recognized as 5280 Magazine’s Five Star Real Estate Agent for 2 years running.

What is your specialty and what does that mean for the people you work with? I work with Buyers, Sellers, and Investors. My clients know that they get a trusted advisor that can guide them thru regular transactions, as well as think outside the box to get them through difficult transactions such as Short Sales and Bank Owned Properties.

What do you most enjoy doing when you’re not working? My family and I love the mountains. We enjoy going to our family cabin in Winter Park in all seasons. Don’t get me wrong, Colorado is the best, but our favorite places to get away are Hawaii and Disney World. You just can’t beat being a kid with your kids. What is one tip you have for someone looking to sell a house? Hire an experienced local REALTOR® who knows the neighborhood. I am here to defend your equity not just get the home sold. What is one tip you have for someone looking to buy a house? Again, hire an experienced local REALTOR®. I am a statistics and research-a-holic. I analyze the heck out of the market data so my clients can feel secure about getting the home at a fair market price. The market has changed and finding a “deal” takes more patience.

What is the most challenging part of what you do? Particularly in the last 5 years, many people have fallen on hard times. Large national banks seem to throw common sense out the window. I have tried to help clients keep their home by getting them in contact with housing c ou ns e l ors .

What is the most unusual thing you’ve encountered while working in Real Estate? One time, I showed a buyer a finished attic and found a live raccoon that the seller didn’t know was there.

AAA Colorado aims to show and tell ‘EnCompass with Dan Davis’ will air on Channel 20

TUNE IN AAA Colorado Presents “EnCompass with Dan Davis” Where: Channel 20 When: Every Saturday at 9:30 p.m.

By Clarke Reader

creader@ourcoloradonews.com There is a lot to see and do in Colorado and its neighboring states, and even for longtime residents, there are new places and people to discover. Sharing information about what is out there is the aim of “EnCompass with Dan Davis,” a new weekly television show that began airing on Channel 20 on Jan. 5. The program will air on Saturdays at 9:30 p.m. The show is sponsored by AAA Colorado, and is based on its EnCompass magazine, and each episode will feature locations and activities in Colorado, the rest of the country, and some international locations. “We’re very excited to bring this very popular magazine to televisions,” said Wave Dreher, a spokesperson for AAA Colorado. “It’s great to work with Dan Davis, featuring travel trips for all over, as well as consumer tips. He has a wonderful knack or finding places and people you don’t know about.” Davis has been a newscaster for 32 years,

Ketchikan, Alaska, is one of the locations that will be featured in the “EnCompass with Dan Davis” program. Photo courtesy of Dan Davis and worked on “Good Morning Arizona” for 15 years before starting a similar program in Arizona. The Arizona show is entering its third season, and Davis said that the Colorado chapter of AAA saw the work that was being done and wanted to do something similar. “I love to tell travel stories, and the No. 1

thing for me is the people you meet along the way,” Davis said. “People you meet while traveling always want to help you find great places to go.” Davis and his team recently finished up a 2,100-mile trip in southwestern Colorado along U.S. 50, which included stops in Durango, Pagosa Springs and Salida, where he said he met and did segments with many

Governor Ritter Explains Energy / Innovation Link to Chamber Group By Manny Gonzales | mgonzales@bestchamber.com For Colorado to forge ahead as leader in energy production, we will need to rely on our wealth of natural resources and build understanding how oil and gas exploration and innovation in renewable energy can coexist, former Gov. Bill Ritter told a group of business leaders recently. “It’s important to look ahead and natural gas is important for the clean energy future,” said Ritter, speaking to about 60 members of the South Metro Denver Chamber’s Energy and Renewable Infrastructure Council (ERIC). “Natural gas production has to be done in a very environmentally sound way.” The ERIC’s role at the chamber has been to promote the region and the state as the energy capital of the nation and Ritter has been among a list of innovators and experts in traditional oil and gas and renewable energy who have met with the group. “Colorado is doing it the right way,” said Chamber President & CEO John Brackney. “Bringing in great minds, leaders of innovation and power players – which Governor Ritter fits into all three – is how this business community is helping to advance things in traditional and renewable energy.” Ritter, who served as Colorado’s governor from 2007 to 2011, currently serves as Director of the Center for the New Energy Economy at Colorado State University. As governor, he was active in propping up Colorado as a clean energy state while urging for tighter regulations on traditional oil and gas processes. At CSU, he has been active in making a business case for clean energy while working with communities to build understanding and acceptance around traditional oil and gas operations. “We talk a lot at CSU about the social license for natural gas,” Ritter said. “You need

interesting people, including a beekeeper who is attempting to make honey whiskey, and a taxidermist in Salida. “The way I approach this is we have the first and last story set up, and then we see what happens along the way,” he said. “You get going and then just keep your fingers crossed.” Dreher said that Davis will be doing some shows on ski resorts and things for both skiers and non-skiers to do at the resorts, in addition to other programs with Colorado features. “We’ll be doing a show about a balloon regatta at Lake Powell and a cruise in Alaska,” Davis said. “EnCompass” will be running for the entire year, and filming will be a continous process throughout. Davis said he would like to further explore southern Colorado, and also do something on the DurangoSilverton train. “The goal for each episode is to show things that people aren’t aware of,” he said. “Like most vacations, the most unexpected things are the most exciting.”

a social license to operate with communities you impact.” Ritter also alluded to the challenges politics brings to the mix. “The last of two years has been pretty contentious inside the halls of legislatures around the country and we saw energy politics become a wedge issue,” he said. “When I was governor we passed some really significant energy legislation in a bipartisan way, Clean Energy Clean Jobs, with some really serious bipartisan support. We haven’t experienced that much around the country.” Ritter did point out that Colorado is in a delicate place as the economy forges ahead and that innovation in technology around hydraulic fracturing could address issues specific to our state’s water shortages. Fracturing utilizes about one percent of the state’s water for gas processing, he pointed out. “But I think it’s that one percent that everyone is arguing over,” Ritter said. “We

need to respect and understand the relationship between energy, food and water in this state. What we’re seeing is farmers and ranchers going to auction to buy surplus water and find themselves bidding against energy companies. We don’t want to see our agricultural economy suffer in a significant way because of energy.” The South Metro Denver Chamber Energy and Renewable Infrastructure Council is a coalition of leaders in a public/private partnership to explore aspects of renewable energy. These forward-thinking business professionals want to create jobs, put Colorado on the map as a technology hub and provide an energy road map for the next generation. This is the execution of the idea that the entire south metro area can exist on alternative and renewable fuels. The group meets the third Friday of every month at the Chamber Center – 2154 E. Commons Ave., Suite 342 in Centennial. For more information, call 303795-0142.

Legislators: Scheffel lauds C-470: Coalition awaits final school board’s reform bid design criteria for roadway Legislators continues from Page 1

Colorado Senate Assistant Minority Leader Mark Scheffel said Republicans will continue to battle against what he termed overregulation, “the proper role of governeperment,” and other issues. skey, “Obviously, our party is not in the majority. That was a little hard to take. Now we e thehead back into the fray (with) resolve with e seea capital `R’. The good news is, our cause is “Youjust. This team, we’re pretty much in lockngersstep. There are going to be a lot of challenges. We’re up to that. We will stick with oingthe themes that got us here.” s for Education issues, including state funde re-ing and the implementation of common withcore standards, also are likely to play a prominent role in coming state-level dislooncussions. Alas-

Scheffel praised the Douglas County School Board for being “on the forefront of reform,” and said he wants to ensure the decision-making process on education remains under local control to prevent “a bureaucrat in Washington deciding how much math and science you should take.” “As you can see, elections have consequences,” McNulty said. “We’re playing a lot of defense.” Rep. Chris Holbert, however, pointed to encouraging economic development indicators, specifically the coming of Cabela’s to Lone Tree, Hitachi Data Systems opening in the Meridian Business Center and construction of the Polystrand factory near Centennial Airport. “We have so much to be excited about in Douglas County,” he said. “We have a lot of reasons to be proud.”

South Suburban showoffers fun options said. ected for 9- to 14-year-olds By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com South Suburban Parks and Recreation has broadened its popular Rec & Rock program and tweaked the name to reflect those changes. Kids Nights, held every weekend at a South Suburban facility, offer 9- to 14-year-olds a fun evening with their peers, and without their parents. The menu of options typically includes swimming, dancing, open play in the gymnasium, and likely a little flirtation in the secure, adult-supervised setting of a recreation center. “This is just for the kids,” said Jamie DeBartolomeis, South Suburban spokeswoman. “With all the focus now on being active and doing things, this is a great opportunity for them to go swimming and dancing, socializing with their peers, get them out of their bedrooms and away from their laptops. This is a place for them to hang out

with their friends and be safe.” The pre- and early-teen crowd is ideally suited to the Kids Night format. “Kids start separating from their parents anyway at that point,” DeMartolomeis said. “It’s that weird time where you’re almost too old to be babysat. It’s much more fun for them to go somewhere.” Parents get a break as well. “It’s actually a nice opportunity for parents to have a night out or a night in, too, some time away from their kids,” she said. “They can feel pretty relaxed and secure knowing their kids are in a program that’s supervised.” The long-running program was known as Rec & Rock, and while that offering continues, others have been added. Those include Xtreme Teens, Buck Blitz, Movie Night, Kids Adventure Night and Parents Night Out Gymnastics. “Every center is a little bit different,” DeBartolomeis said. Family Skate Night also is open to all family members every Friday at the South Suburban Ice Arena. Admission to Kids Night is $10, with concessions available at additional cost.

er into four lanes in each direction. “If our study on the final design criteria and cost comes out and it is suddenly realized that for very little more we could expand it to two new toll lanes, then that’s an option we have to think about,” he said. “That roadway, as it is, has reached its life cycle and we’ve already put one major

Warriors deliver lesson to Mountain Vista Arapahoe overwhelms visiting Golden Eagles By Craig Harper

sports@ourcoloradonews.com The upstart with a new coach, lofty goals and a chip on its shoulder - but missing two key players - ventured on the road seeking a breakthrough victory against a seasoned, senior-laden team ranked No. 2 in Class 5A. But Mountain Vista learned the hard way that Arapahoe also is a team on a mission, and the deep, talented and focused Warriors weren’t about to play the role of unwitting victim in the teams’ first post-holiday break game. Sparked by its relentless full-court defensive pressure, Arapahoe never let the Golden Eagles get untracked and rolled to a 74-38 victory Saturday afternoon. In contrast to their shaky first half in their previous outing, a 5746 victory over 4A top-ranked Broomfield on Dec. 18, the Warriors roared to a 35-8 halftime lead. Mountain Vista committed 25 turnovers and went without a basket for a 12:41 stretch in the half.

Mountain Vista’s Maddie Whetstone, center, dribbles against the defense of Arapahoe’s Lindsay Sugo, left, and Paige Husa Jan. 5. Arapahoe won 74-38.

With the win the Warriors took over the top-spot in the latest poll, released Monday, leapfrogging idle Grandview. “I’m always hoping for it,’’ Arapahoe coach Jerry Knafelc said of the fast start. “But I know that we were chomping at the bit to get to a game and were really ready to play. And I know for a fact (Mountain Vista would) want to come in and prove something and I did discus that amongst our team. We wanted to make sure they didn’t.’’ Arapahoe, with nine seniors back from a 2012-13 squad that went 19-6 and as the No. 2 seed lost by one point to ThunderRidge in the Sweet 16 of the state tournament, improved to 9-0, including double-figure wins over Ralston Valley and ThunderRidge, both on the periphery of the top 10 in the Denver Post’s late-December poll. The Warriors opened play in the Centennial League - which includes top-ranked Grandview - against No. 10 Cherry Creek on Wednesday. “They’re a top 1-2 team in the state, no doubt about it,’’ said Mountain Vista coach Mike Willahan. And the way last season ended still eats away at Arapahoe. “Our girls have worked really, really hard,’’ Knafelc said. “We had a good year last year but it ended in a disappointing fashion for all of them. So they have worked very focused and diligently to improve on that.’’ “Most of our girls played last year and a lot of them played the year before,’’ Knafelc said of his team’s experience. “I am blessed to have the players I have.’’ One question stumps Knafelc: Who is Arapahoe’s best player? “It depends on the night,’’ he replied. “We are pretty balanced … 11 deep every night.’’ Case in point: 11 Warriors scored against Mountain Vista, led by Karlyn Johnson with 17 points (11 in the first half), junior Mikaela Moore (13) and sophomore Jenna Knafelc (11), none of whom ranked among the team’s top four scorers in the first eight games. Moore (9) and Johnson (8) led the way in rebounds. Jerry Knafelc found one bone to pick. The Warriors, who shot 70 percent from the free throw line before the holiday break, went 7-for-19 (.368) on Saturday.

Mountain Vista had won nine straight since a season-opening 51-48 loss to Loveland. But Willahan, an assistant for 4A runner-up D’Evelyn last season, said the Golden Eagles felt somewhat slighted for not receiving votes in the early 5A polls and viewed the Arapahoe game as an opportunity to open people’s eyes. “It wasn’t the showing that we wanted,’’ Willahan said. “We talk about taking advantage of opportunities and this was a good opportunity. But that’s why they’re the No. 2-ranked team.’’ Willahan lamented missed good scoring chances at the outset of the game. Maddie Whetstone (8 points) hit a 3-pointer about a minute and a half into the game to make it 4-3 Arapahoe, but the Golden Eagles didn’t score again until the 6:23 mark of the second quarter and didn’t make their second field goal until Whetstone connected on a drive with 1:35 left. Mountain Vista shot 2-of-19 from the floor (1-13 from 3-point range) and 3-of-8 from the foul line in addition to its 25 turnovers (for 17 Arapahoe points) in the half. Arapahoe scored the final 18 points of the first quarter for a 22-3 lead (Mountain Vista also missed two free throws), and the Golden Eagles didn’t score following Whetstone’s trey until junior point guard Jordan Graff (8 points) made two free throws with 6:23 left in the second quarter. Mountain Vista played better in the second half, limiting its turnovers to nine with Chelsea Pearson scoring 13 of her team-high 14 points, though Arapahoe built a 40-point lead early in the fourth quarter. It didn’t help that Mountain Vista played without injured 6-2 junior Mikalah Hughes, its second-leading rebounder, and junior cocaptain Maddy Wilmes (personal reason) both of whom Willahan expects will be back when the Golden Eagles begin Continental League play. “That’s no excuse,’’ Willahan said. “Hat’s off to Arapahoe. We played well in spurts but if we’re going to get to their level we’ve got to be more consistent for 32 minutes, and we’re just not there yet.’’ Mountain Vista hosts Montbello on Friday before opening play in the always-demanding Continental League, which features four top-10 teams.

Locals to be honored at luncheon District hosts Girls and Women’s in Sports Day By Jim Benton

jbenton@ourcoloradonews.com An elbow injury forced Cat (Cathleen) Badillo to retire from gymnastics four years ago. The Legend senior decided to plunge into diving and was second in the Class 5A diving competition last season in the State Meet. On Saturday (Jan. 19), Badillo will be one of 135 athletes honored at the National Girls and Women’s in Sports Day luncheon at Chaparral High School. The luncheon is hosted by the Douglas County Educational Foundation and Douglas County School District to recognize young women who exhibit outstanding athletic accomplishments and character in the Douglas County Schools. Ten girls from each middle school and five athletes from each Douglas County High school will be honored along with alumni and coaches at the seventh annual luncheon. “There are a lot of accomplished athletes and students in our schools and so I was really surprised and honored,” said Badillo. “I didn’t realize what it was until I sat down in my classroom, read it and then I got really excited.” Badillo, who lives in Elizabeth and transferred to Legend from St. Mary’s Academy where she finished high in the Class 4A state diving championships as a freshman and sophomore, hopes to start diving this month after being sidelined with a hip injury. “I had to have surgery on my elbow and a lot of the girls in my gymnastics program tried diving,” explained Badillo. “So I

tried diving and really didn’t like it at first because it was new and I had to go on my head which is a big no-no in gymnastics. “I was like I’m going to be an athlete no matter what and I kept going at it and I turned out to really love it.” Badillo believes she will quickly be able to regain her competitive edge once the okay is given to resume diving. “I’m just sort of visualizing,” said Badillo who will dive for the University of Denver next season. “I go to all the practices and watch the girls dive to see what works and what doesn’t. Then I watch my coach correcting them and I figure out what they did wrong and what I should do. “I’m not out there per say but mentally I’m pretending I’m doing dives. So physically I’m out of the sport but mentally, I’m not.” The list of honorees for the Jan. 19th National Girls and Women’s in Sports Day luncheon at Chaparral High School is below.

Golden Eagles soar by Arapahoe Pemberton paces impressive Mountain Vista win in battle of unbeatens By Jim Benton

jbenton@ourcoloradonews.com HIGHLANDS RANCH - Jake Pemberton spend a lot of time during the holiday break shooting baskets. It showed last Friday night as the 6-foot-3 junior scored a game-high 27 points to lead No. 2 Mountain Vista to a 69-54 victory over No. 3 Arapahoe in a non-league showdown that drew an overflow crowd to the Golden Eagles gym. The crowd, which included several rival coaches and members of the CHSAA basketball seeding committee, watched the Golden Eagles improved their record to 10-0 while Arapahoe, last season’s Class 5A state runners-up, lost for the first time in nine games. Mountain Vista, a team that lacks height and compensates with an uptempo offensive and defensive philosophy, blew the game open in the second half as the Golden Eagles built a 23-point lead early in the fourth quarter and Pemberton led the way. “Over break, my Dad made me go to the gym and shoot like 600 shots a day,” said Pemberton who scored 21 of his points in the second half. “I practice as much as I can.” At first glance, Pemberton looks as if he would be more comfortable preparing in the library or the chemistry laboratory than on a basketball court. “You wouldn’t pick him out as the guy to be the best player on the team,”

said Mountain Vista coach Dan Wood. “That’s what he was against Arapahoe. He’s a good player defensively and offensively. He has skills and he’s getting better and better.” Pemberton is the team’s leading scorer through 10 games with an 18.0 average and says the Golden Eagles had something to prove against Arapahoe. “It was a huge game,” said Pemberton. “We were not respected because our schedule was not that tough. Everything thinks that and we thought that too. So we just wanted to come out and prove ourselves. “It was a nice win. There was a big crowd and two undefeated teams. It was fun.” It wasn’t much fun for Arapahoe who shot .333 from the field and committed 19 turnovers. The Warriors also sent Mountain Vista players to the foul line to shoot 37 free throws. The Golden Eagles made 24 free throws. And Mountain Vista’s players managed the grab 38 rebounds against the taller Warriors. “Everything went wrong,” Arapahoe coach Dan Snyder said. “We obviously didn’t play well. We got outhustled, we didn’t take care of the ball and their speed really hurt us. We fouled too much and put them on the line too much and they deserved to win. It was a blowout. We really got our rear ends kicked.” Mountain Vista, which played at Montbello Tuesday, and hosts Grand Junction Saturday in non-league contests, knows the road gets tougher once Continental League play begins. “I feel like we’re getting better,” said Wood. “I am really pleased with our defense.”

Roundup: Vieselmeyer leaving Valor Christian By Jim Benton

jbenton@ourcoloradonews. com Valor Christian is shopping for a new football coach. Brent Vieselmeyer, who guided the Eagles to four consecutive state championships, is leaving to assume the role as defensive coordinator at Houston Baptist, a school that will be playing its first season of Division I football this fall. Vieselmeyer, the Colorado Community Media Coach of the Year after the Eagles won the Class 5A state championship last November, compiled a 55-11 record in five seasons at Valor. GOLDEN EAGLES SOARING - Mountain Vista’s girls basketball program hasn’t produced a winning team since the Golden Eagles were 14-11 in the 2006-07 season. So far this campaign, Mountain Vista looks like winners with a surprising 9-2 record heading into this week’s action. The usual Douglas County teams should challenge Regis in Continental League play. Chaparral is 8-2, Highlands Ranch 7-3, Castle View 7-2 and Rock Canyon 6-2. Chaparral, which has averaged 17 wins over the past six years, continues to baffle observers. “Chaparral is going to be real tough this year,” said Rock Canyon coach Robbie Bal-

lard. “You think this might be the year they are down a little bit but they are always locked, loaded and ready to go.” ThunderRidge’s 4-6 record is disappointing for an expected top-tier team. The Grizzlies have been playing without last season’s leading scorer Taylor Williams who continues to rehab an injured knee. Doctors have released her to start jumping and Williams hopes to be back in two weeks. Taylor Rusk, a 5-foot-8 freshman, has taken over the scoring load with a 13.5 average and Brianna Throop is scoring at a 10.5 clip. “We’ll ease Taylor back in and see what she can do,” said ThunderRidge coach Bill Bradley. “We need her. Rusk has done a good job especially considering she is playing out of position. She’s playing in Taylor’s position so we hope when Taylor we can take Taylor Rusk and move her back and that will help us. “We miss so much leadership not having Taylor Williams on the floor. We’re just trying to figure each other out. Taylor can create her own shots and do some things you really don’t have to practice. You have a Taylor on the floor and she has to be guarded and they have to worry about what she can do. And all of a sudden it makes everybody else’s job easier.” To make matters worse for

ThunderRidge, Megan Yoney broke her hand before Christmas and will be out for six to eight weeks. “We’re just trying to overcome some things but hopefully we are getting better every day,” said Bradley ROCK CANYON WINS Kendall Koslosky scored 20 points and Erin McClarie added 19 in the Jaguars’ 63-61 victory over No. 6 Denver East. Koslosky scored a 3-point play to push No. 8 Rock Canyon ahead, 62-61, with nine seconds remaining in the game. Rock Canyon, with three games scheduled this week, added a free throw with three seconds showing on the clock to account for the final score. BRADBURY STARS - Valor Christian (4-9) lost twice despite the efforts of Kendall Bradbury. The 5-11 sophomore had 19 points in a 63-52 loss to Pueblo West and scored 26 points in a 71-60 setback to Sand Creek. MOUNTAIN VISTA BOYS STAY PERFECT - Mountain Vista’s 10-0 start is the best for all boys teams in Douglas County but there appears to be several quality squads as the teams resume play after the holiday break. “I feel like we’re getting better,” Mountain Vista coach Dan Wood said. Legend is 7-2, Highlands Ranch and ThunderRidge are 7-3.

Misc. Private Legals

You have the right to request a trial by jury at the adjudicatory stage of this petition. You also have the right to legal representation at every stage of the proceedings by counsel of your own choosing, or if you are without sufficient financial means, appointment of counsel by the Court. Termination of your parent-child legal relationship to free your children for adoption is a possible remedy in this proceeding. If that remedy is pursued, you are entitled to a hearing before a Judge. You also have the right, if you are indigent, to have the Court appoint, at no expense to you, one expert witness of your own choosing at any hearing on the termination of your parent-child relationship. If you are a minor, you have the right to the appointment of a Guardian ad litem to represent your best interests. You have the right to have this matter heard by a district court judge rather than by the magistrate.
