Sex assaults in news, but not new Recent cases involving children shed light on longtime problem By Ryan Boldrey

rboldrey@ourcoloradonews.com Sex assault on a child by a person in a position of trust is nothing new. Not in Douglas County, not anywhere else in the U.S. However, dating back to last summer, there have been four high-profile cases

making their way through the 18th Judicial District Court in Castle Rock, involving three Douglas County School District teachers and a Highlands Ranch youth pastor. All four men in question — ranging in age from 26 to 41 — have been charged with or already pleaded guilty to some degree of inappropriate sexual contact on teenage children under their supervision and guidance. Deputy District Attorney Chris Gallo, who specializes in cases involving crimes

against children for the 18th, has been the lead prosecutor in all four cases. What may be most disturbing, he said, is that for every high-profile case, there are a dozen other cases that he prosecutes involving these types of crimes. “We’ve had a ton of others where we have charged a person in a position of trust who wasn’t a (leader) in the community,” Gallo said. “Whether it was a neighbor, an uncle, a stepfather, this abuse happens across economic lines, across social lines.” And while there appears to be an inor-

dinate number of these crimes surfacing in the county lately, neither Gallo, District Attorney George Brauchler, nor Douglas County Sheriff’s Detective Mike Duffy sees an indication that there are more of these types of crimes per capita now than before. “I think in part, the stigma is slowly being taken away from this,” Brauchler said. He emphasized that more children who are victimized are seeing that the courts are not always going to side with the adult, and Assault continues on Page16

Close to 100 kids took part in the Highlands Ranch Community Association’s annual Lollipopalooza celebration June 28 at Westridge Recreation Center. Kids enjoyed cooling off outdoors in a dunk tank and bucket splash, and jumped up and down in indoor bounce houses on a 92-degree afternoon. Photo by Ryan Boldrey

Abandoned puppies recovering well Law enforcement still soliciting leads in incident By Ryan Boldrey

rboldrey@ourcoloradonews. com Four of the five puppies found abandoned in a trash can at Highland Heritage Park in May are recovering well in foster care and just weeks from adoption. The two male and two female shih tzu mixes that were still alive when found at the Highlands Ranch park are quickly coming into their own at Douglas County Animal Control Officer Caitlyn Cahill’s Bennett horse ranch. Cahill, who wasn’t working when the puppies were discovered May 21, brought them home a few days later after her mother offered to help nurse them to health. After weeks of being syringe-

The four surviving puppies who were found abandoned May 21 in a trash can at Highland Heritage Park are recovering well at the home of Douglas County Animal Control Officer Caitlyn Cahill. The puppies will be ready for adoption in a few weeks. Courtesy photo fed every three hours around the clock, the dogs graduated to warmed-up, crushed dog food

and milk this past week and just recently began drinking their water from a bowl. In ad-

dition, they have had quite the role model in Cahill’s 5-year-old Australian shepherd, Keyna. “She never had a litter of pups, but she has naturally taken to them,” Cahill said of Kenya and the puppies. “We’ve noticed in the past that she has some really good mothering instincts with the horses and the cats. She really took a liking to them.” The puppies, which were estimated to be between three and seven days old when they were found, are each beginning to show off their individual personalities, Cahill said. There’s Gus Gus, the go-getter of the group, who has been the first to do everything and consistently underfoot. There’s Brutus, the cuddly runt of the litter. There’s Lilo, the loner. And there’s Bridgett, the playful one of the bunch, who likes to wrestle. Douglas County law enforcement is still asking for help in Puppies continues on Page 9

A total of 380 teachers, or about 11.7 percent, of Douglas County teachers are leaving the school district this year. That figure is down from the 2012 turnover rate of 13.26 percent recorded by the Colorado Department of Education. Returning teachers were required to return contracts by June 23. After two spring protests surrounding the district’s new teacher evaluation program, and reports that large numbers of teachers would leave DCSD this year, the district report makes school board president John Carson very Carson happy. “It validated what we’ve been hearing,” he said. “The vast majority of teachers are staying. The TELL survey tells us they’re happy with their school environment. “These numbers are not large. If (departing teachers) wish to be vocal about it, it indicates they’re not happy. So we wish them well.” The state education department’s Teaching, Empowering, Leading and Learning (TELL) survey showed 84.7 percent of Turnover continues on Page 9

resented the Chatfield Community Association in the suit that halted the development in 2012, said Sterling Ranch’s filing might not satisfy all of the issues they had raised in court. “There may be other unresolved issues, such as transportation and other regulations we didn’t feel that they complied with,” Kreutz said. “The court didn’t address the other issues because they only ruled on the water issue.” Kreutz said that if his clients do not feel those other issues have been addressed, there is a possibility the Chatfield Community Association will file suit again. “We’re hopeful that we will be able to start moving dirt by the end of this year, and that if all goes well, we’ll start to see homes coming up in 2014,” Smethills said. The public hearing is scheduled for 1 p.m. July 10 at the Philip S. Miller Building, 100 Third St. in Castle Rock.

The Sterling Ranch planned development will seek approval from Douglas County commissioners for a second time this coming week. The county approved the project in 2011, but a 2012 court ruling by 18th Judicial District Court Judge Paul King stated that the project did not have sufficient water secured to break ground. Plans for Sterling Ranch call for a 12,000-home community on 3,400 acres northeast of Roxborough State Park. After requests to have the ruling overturned, Sterling Ranch officials submitted a 121-page filing to the county in March stating that it had

since met the necessary water requirements for build-out and that it is ready to begin the development. “The ruling said that we must have 25 years of water before we can start, so we set about to obtain sufficient water for the entire development, and we’ve done that,” said Harold Smethills, Sterling Ranch managing director, following an agreement to acquire 4,200 acre-feet of water from Dominion Water. At the time of King’s ruling, Smethills said Sterling Ranch had already purchased 88 million gallons from Aurora Water — enough to meet the needs of the first plat scheduled for the phased development. Plans at the time, he said, called for purchasing or leasing the remainder of the water on a phase-by-phase basis. Now, Smethills says, they have all the water required.

Split precincts, divided communities eliminated By Ryan Boldrey

rboldrey@ourcoloradonews.com Douglas County commissioners unanimously approved the modification of the county’s commissioner districts and added a new precinct this past week. A total of seven precincts were affected by the June 25 vote that stemmed from a May proposal by Douglas County Clerk and Recorder Jack Arrowsmith. Arrowsmith saw a need for the change after state and federal redistricting in 2011 led to the placing of six Douglas County precincts in two separate commissioner districts. “A precinct has to be entirely within a single U.S. Congressional district,

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

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

Man convicted in assault of elderly woman Highlands Ranch resident faces up to life in prison Staff report A Jefferson County jury has found Michael Steven Arreola, 58, of Highlands Ranch, guilty of unlawful sexual contact with an 81-year-old woman. Arreola was convicted June 24. He was found guilty of five felony counts, including two counts of attempted sexual assault of an at-risk adult, one count of unlawful sexual contact of an at-risk adult, one count of attempted unlawful sexual contact of an at-risk adult and one count of menacing.

According to a news release from the First Judicial District Attorney’s Office, during the trial the victim testified that Arreola had taken her to an Edgewater bar in July 2012. Arreola Employees of the bar said the man was “aggressively ordering beers” for her and that the victim was seen losing her balance and fell into a wall inside the bar. Employees helped Arreola get the woman into his truck and one of her neighbors testified that he saw Arreola

drag her into her home at 6 p.m. that evening. The two were found together in bed by the victim’s granddaughter a few hours later and the granddaughter went and got her father, the victim’s son, from his home next door. According to testimony, the victim’s son ordered Arreola out of the house at gunpoint and Arreola called 911 to report that he had been threatened. When Wheat Ridge police arrived they found the victim unable to walk. Arreola will be sentenced Aug. 29. He could face a sentence of probation for 20 years to life, or a sentence of between eight and 24 years to life in prison. He is currently free on $1,000 bond.

douglas county sheriff’s briefs Shady thieves on Shady Lane

A case of jewelry valued at $5,000 to $6,000 was stolen from a parked vehicle overnight in the 2800 block of Shady Lane in Highlands Ranch. The owners of the vehicle were certain that they had locked their car when they parked it on the night of June 15. When they got to their vehicle the next day, they noticed sunglasses missing from the console in the front of the car and the case missing from the trunk. No prints were obtained from the vehicle and no signs of forced entry were noted.

Church trailer stolen

A trailer was stolen from the parking lot of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the 4100 block of Wildcat Reserve Parkway in Highlands Ranch sometime between June 7 and June 9. The trailer, which had cost the church $1,300, had approximately $2,500 of camping equipment stored inside it that was also taken.

Scammer targets tutor

A college student home for the summer was victimized after placing an ad on Craigslist, offering her services as a tutor. The student, who is staying in Highlands Ranch for the summer, was contacted by a woman who said she would be visiting from London with her family and wanted the student to tutor her nephew. The woman sent a check for $2,000, instructing the student to deposit the check, keep $400 for herself and wire the other $1,600 to a woman in Sacramento, Calif., who was serving as a nanny for the boy. After wiring the money, she realized it was a scam, put a hold on her bank account, and reported it to the sheriff’s office June 19.

Beer run without pay

On June 16, deputies responded to the King Soopers in the 9500 block of South University Boulevard in Highlands Ranch two days after an unidentified believed to be a teenage male entered the store, placed two 30-packs of Miller High Life in a shopping cart and wheeled the cart right out of the store without any attempt to pay. The store manager gave deputies a copy of the surveillance video, which showed a white male teenager with mid-length brown hair wearing a blue athletic T-shirt, black shorts and a white watch committing the crime. The deputies have shared the video with the sheriff’s office school resource officers.

two national forests enter stage 2 fire ban Staff report All of Pike and San Isabel national forests are now under Stage 2 fire restrictions.

Vote on tax hike taking shape Organizers plan ballot question on school funding By Vic Vela

vvela@ourcoloradonews.com The tax initiative tied to funding of a major overhaul of Colorado’s school finance formula has been determined, and the campaign that’s behind it now has a name. Now, the real work for organizers begins: Getting signatures for a ballot proposal and, ultimately, trying to sell voters on the need for supporting about $950 million in new taxes that will be used to reshape how schools are funded. A committee that is calling itself Colorado Commits to Kids announced last week that it will work to put a two-tiered income tax increase on the ballot this fall. The tax initiative, which would impact higher wage earners more, would support the funding needed to enact Senate Bill 213, a major rewrite of the School Finance Act. The act, passed by the Legislature earlier this year, would create full-day kindergarten, provide preschool for at-risk children, and would put more money into needsbased programs for special education students and children learning English. The legislation also aims to increase perpupil funding for school districts across the state that supporters say would be done in a more equitable fashion than the current system allows. “We are eager to have a vigorous debate when the campaign begins in earnest,” said Curtis Hubbard, on behalf of Colorado Commits to Kids. Colorado’s current income tax rate is a flat 4.63 percent, regardless of income level. The initiative will ask voters to approve an additional 0.37 percent in taxes on income earners who make up to $75,000 a year, bringing their tax rates up to 5 percent. Residents making more than $75,000 a year would pay 5 percent on their first $75,000 of taxable income, and a rate of 5.9 percent on income above that amount. Republican legislators opposed SB 213

in the recent legislative session and their opinions aren’t changing now that they know what the tax initiative will look like. “A tax increase like this runs the risk of stalling this fragile economic recovery moving forward,” said House Minority Leader Mark Waller, R-Colorado Springs. Waller also wondered why the tax hike is needed, citing recently released revenue forecasts that project the State Education Fund will have a balance of $1.6 billion for the coming budget year. However, state Rep. Sue Schafer, DWheat Ridge, countered Waller’s argument by saying the revenue increase is loaded with one-time funds that are meant for “rainy day” spending. “They want to play Russian roulette with my children’s future,” Schafer said of Republican opposition to the tax hike. “This is going to restore our school funding to where we were in 2008, when we had to make serious cuts.” Gov. John Hickenlooper has yet to make a direct statement in support of the proposed tax initiative. However, the governor did say after signing SB 213 that he “certainly” would campaign for the ballot effort. Hickenlooper spokesman Eric Brown did not directly answer whether the governor supports this particular tax scheme. “Colorado has approved some of the most robust education reforms in the country,” Brown wrote in an emailed statement. “These are reforms the governor fully supports. Now, it appears voters will get a chance to endorse the changes and set a new course for Colorado kids. We look forward to following the petition process and continuing to talk to the business community and other stakeholders about these reforms.” Waller blasted Hickenlooper for “failing to take a stand” on the issue. “He’s not very good at making decisions and it’s always at the last minute,” Waller said. “When you’re the governor, you’re paid to be the leader. It’s frustrating.” Asked if Colorado Commits to Kids has Hickenlooper’s support, Hubbard said, “Not quite. But I think that it’s close.”

opinions / yours and ours

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

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

question of the week

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

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

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

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

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

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

Better never late than late In the midst of our hectic life and sometimes chaotic schedules there are times when we find ourselves running late for almost everything we do. As I found this happening more and more in my own life recently, I had to stop and ask myself, why? Was I not placing enough emphasis or importance on the meeting I was scheduled to attend? Did I believe that even if I was just a few minutes late that would be OK? Had I convinced myself that my time was more valuable than that of the person I was supposed to meet with? Or was I just cramming as much as I possibly could into my day and getting so wrapped up in a project or task that the time just slipped away and before I knew it I was already running late? I found myself justifying my lateness, not only to me but to everyone that was on my calendar. Making excuse after excuse until finally I realized that I was making excuses and making apologies for something that I could easily control. You probably have friends or family members that fall into this very same category. They are late for everything and always call or text with a reason for why they are running late. I have a few people in my life too that qualify as habitual late arrivers. So much so that we would have to tell the person that is chronically late that the scheduled event was starting 15 to 30 minutes earlier than it was actually starting. I am sure many of you use the same tactic for those in your own circle of friends and family who struggle with being on time. And here I was thinking, if I keep this up, if I continue running late for everything, that pretty soon people would start managing me in the very same way. I would get the invitation for a 7 p.m. dinner when the reservations were really for 7:30. This just comes down to commitment

and respect. Two things that I teach and coach on a daily basis, but was not applying in my own life. And really when I have this conversation with clients or friends we discuss awareness of where we are supposed to be, the commitments we have made for the day, and the people or clients we are scheduled to meet with that day. We also make sure we take into consideration the respect for their time and for their expectations. There are so many tactics to use that are helpful, including alarms or alerts on our smart phones to reviewing our calendars the evening before or very first thing in the morning each day. Again, becoming aware of where and when we are supposed to be somewhere or with someone. Now for all of you who do not struggle with this problem as you are always on time, punctual, and prompt, maybe you too can help coach those of us who have slipped and despite our best efforts show up late for everything. And for those of us who have slipped, this is one of those bad habits that needs to be addressed and eliminated as early as possible. Because the longer we allow it to go on, the worse we actually become. We go from being just a few minutes late to showing up 30 minutes late, or even later. There is an old saying that goes like this, Norton continues on Page 7

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

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

Think I’m not cool? You’re getting warm I think most of us would rather be cool. I think most of us would rather look cool and act cool, and to say cool things. Cool people wear cool shirts. They listen to cool music. Know cool people. Drive a cool car. Eat at the coolest places. Go to cool parties. Go on cool trips. They have a cool dog and a cool hat. Cool shoes? Absolutely. I hear that word a lot, but no one has ever said that I was cool. I have known for some time that I am not cool. Cool people don’t own khakis. I own khakis. I own dirty bucks too. Cool people wouldn’t be caught dead in dirty bucks. I don’t think cool people face their cans. That means you shelve cans with the labels facing forward, just like they do in grocery stores. An askew label in my pantry gives me a headache. Most advertising is aimed at cool people, except for two-pound, bacon cheeseburger ads. Cool people don’t pig out. Cool people have cool watches. Cool people are always late. I don’t own a watch. I am never late. I am always early. Cool people are never early. Cool people are always on the phone. I am never on the phone. The coolest song about cool people is the one goes, “You had one eye in the mirror as you watched yourself gavotte.” I always thought she was saying “as you watched yourself go by.” Cool people never would have thought she said that.

Highlands Ranch Herald

I wonder if it takes more time and energy to be cool. Maybe. Maybe it’s cool not to be cool. Juno thinks Bleeker is cool, and about all he does is eat Tic Tacs like there is no tomorrow. Cool people would never say “like there is no tomorrow.” Are you old enough to remember when cool young men pushed up their sleeves? On their sport coats? One of them was on the Late Show and Letterman reached over and unpushed them. It was perfect. We pick on people who aren’t cool. It’s human nature, unfortunately. If you aren’t in, you’re out — and that’s when things can get tricky, all the way up to bullying. If you’re masculine-feminine or feminine-masculine, good luck. It’s 2013, but we still pick on people for all kinds of reasons. There is no such thing in the real world as live and let live. If you were to see me in a bookstore, you would never guess what I do. I like Smith continues on Page 7

The former president of the Colorado Optometric Association in 1995 and 1996 expects to spend about half of the coming year living out of a suitcase as he leads the nation’s largest optometric association, representing all 50 states, optometrists in the armed forces and optometry students across the U.S. “One of the things we have been concentrating on and will continue to concentrate on is preparing our members for the implementation of health care reform,” he said. “We need to make sure everyone is ready.” Munson, who served as chair of the AOA’s Political Action Committee in 2004, has spent a great deal of time the past few years meeting with politicians and working with the AOA’s Washington lobbyists to ensure optometrists get a fair shake. He said a lot of the association’s efforts have had to do with ensuring optometrists receive the same reim-

bursements as ophthalmologists for performing the same procedures, and that they will have appropriate access to patients once the new health-care laws kick in Jan. 1. Munson’s Ridgeline Boulevard practice is home to four eye doctors and specializes in routine eye care, cornea and contact lens disease, and glaucoma treatment. A 1986 graduate of the Southern California College of Optometry, Munson has been involved in Highlands Ranch since his arrival. Known as the “cow-eye guy” to many, he has performed cow eye dissections for second-grade classrooms in Highlands Ranch every year dating back to 1989. He was the medical coordinator for the Channel 9 Health Fair from 1988-1996 and also served as a Douglas County planning commissioner from 2006-2007. All three of Munson and Brunnett’s daughters are Mountain Vista High School graduates.

No one pranked anyone back then. It was real. I visualized myself sitting there and sounding like Navin R. Johnson, cat juggler. I didn’t reply. I knew better. I would have made a fool out of myself, and what if I had been chosen? An all-expenses-paid trip to Lubbock with a stranger? No thanks. I am on the outside of cool, and I’m not looking in. It was just something to consider this morning, before it gets hot. Craig Marshall Smith is an artist, educator and Highlands Ranch resident.

man Corp. out of Wisconsin, which will be installed in mid-August. “All of our equipment we will have in the brewery and taproom is American-made,” Kevwitch said. “That is something that is extremely important to us.” The taproom will feature six to eight brews when it opens in October, and Kevwitch said the brews will definitely include a Hefeweizen, a Kolsch, an American IPA, a Bock and a brown. Plans also call to add a fruit malt cider soon after opening. The layout will feature a large taproom with an angular bar, and patrons will have the ability to watch beer being made while they sip a cold one, as the brew house will be set up on the other side of a waist-high wall. Tours will also be available to all patrons. “We want them to really feel like they are in a brewery,” Kevwitch said. “That’s the idea, we don’t want this to feel like just any other bar.” As far as beer to go, growlers and kegs will be available at the time of opening and plans call for a canning line around the end of 2014. There will also be limited bottling runs of specialty brews from time to time, Kevwitch said, adding that there will be no food sold at the brewery due to zoning.

Dr. Mitchell Munson became the first optometrist to open a practice in Highlands Ranch 25 years ago when he started the Highlands Ranch Vision Center with his wife, Dr. Susan Brunnett. After serving the past year as president-elect, Munson became president of the American Optometric Association on June 29. The association has 36,000 members nationwide. Photo by Ryan Boldrey

School chef aims for transformation Morse brings passion, experience to Nutrition Services program By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com Chef Jason Morse believes he’s winning what was once an uphill battle to change students’ eating habits. He’s also winning a personal battle. The Douglas County School District’s executive chef, who’s had a lifelong struggle with weight, in January hired a personal trainer and so far has dropped 40 pounds, two shirt sizes and six inches around his waist. “I was a fat guy because I used to sit on the couch,” the 41-year-old said. “I think it’s horribly hypocritical for me to preach wellness and sound decision-making and not be of that same practice.” Morse now has added exercise to a long list of passions, and attributes the country’s childhood obesity epidemic not to red meat or high-fructose corn syrup, but inactivity. “You want obesity to go away? Get kids moving,” he said. Morse and about 320 other employees make up Douglas County School District’s Nutrition Services, a department overseen by DCSD that is financially self-sustaining. A former restaurant and hotel chef and graduate of Johnson & Wales University, Morse started working in the food service at 14.

inspired him to start a consulting business, and a partnership with DCSD that segued into his current post. “I went from making a couple hundred meals a day to now, what we do could potentially affect 64,000 students,” Morse

said. “It’s crazy to see where we’ve come in two and a half years.” Morse and Nutrition Services director Brent Craig helped bring salad bars to almost every school. He learned students’ food preferences by preparing and offering samples to them. Nutrition Services sponsored light-hearted contests to increase fruit-and-vegetable consumption and connect fun with quality food. The married father of two DCSD students also is a friendly, enthusiastic ambassador for Nutrition Services, excited to share his ideas with others in the industry and popular among DCSD students. The movement toward improved student nutrition is national, but he believes DCSD is among those leading the way. “I would say our program is a model,” he said. “We’re pretty heavily acclaimed. We’re not the only district doing it; we just are vocal in celebrating what we do. “We all fight the same fights. How do we get kids to eat more fruits and vegetables? How do we give kids more time at the table? How do we impact learning?” Until those questions are answered, Morse won’t rest. This summer, he’s brainstorming a breakfast program, the transformation of school snacks and the best use of school gardens. In July, he’ll lead a threeday boot camp on basic food preparation skills for Nutrition Services employees. The busy pace and endless quest for improving kids’ lives is a recipe for both professional and personal success. “I am the happiest person in the world to be doing what I do every day,” he said.

saying this is the new normal.” DCSD also projects the addition of 150 new teaching positions for the 2013-14 academic year, bringing the total to about 3,600. Carson said that’s in part to fill positions lost to layoffs in previous years and accommodate a constantly growing student population. He credited the district’s ability to hire added staff “to our strong financial position.” Two schools — Mountain Ridge Middle and Sand Creek Elementary, both in Highlands Ranch — recorded no teacher turnover. Highlands Ranch’s Saddle Ranch Elementary — where parents protested May 30 after learning none of the teachers earned a “highly effective” rating — saw the highest turnover at 30 percent, followed by Franktown Elementary at 29 percent. The turnover rate would have been lower, Carson said, but for a high percentage of retirees. He attributed that

to DCSD’s decision to phase out its severance program, which awarded departing teachers a lump sum of about $38,000. In 2012, 53 teachers retired. This year, the final year of the program, 101 are retiring. “That clearly upped the retirement numbers artificially,” Carson said. “We took the money we saved from phasing that out and put it back into the compensation program for the teachers … back into teacher salaries.” Carson acknowledged the evaluation system is a work in progress, but believes the new figures prove it didn’t significantly impact teacher turnover. “We understand the rating system is new and will continue to evolve,” he said. “We will certainly work with folks on that. But there’s no indication of major discontent from that. “I don’t see anything that should be alarming or purports with a story that teachers are fleeing the district.”

Where were you born? I was born in Salem Massachusetts, the “Witch City”! I am the youngest of six children.

During my 16 years as a Realtor, I have earned several accredited specialties and designations, including Senior Real Estate Specialist, Relocation Specialist, Buyer’s Accredited Representative and Certified Negotiation Expert. By earning these important designations, I feel I am fully educated, knowledgeable, and confident in offering my Buyer’s and Seller’s the best real estate transaction and experience that they deserve. My passion is working with seniors as they have a wealth of knowledge and I always learn something from them!

What is the most challenging part of what you do? educat The biggest challenge I face in the current market is educating Buyer’s and Seller’s regarding the information they are ob obtaining from the internet, and how it IS NOT always current or correct information.

How long have you lived in the area? I have been a resident in Colorado for 24 years. What do you like most about it? What I love most about Colorado is the weather and the friendly people.

What do you most enjoy doing when you are not working? work When I am not working, I enjoy traveling with en my family. We really enjoy cruising. My favorite

tese, Dunkin!

What is one tip you have for someone looking to sell a house? The one tip I have for someone looking to sell a home is to price your home correctly! Overpricing or underpricing your home is a huge money and time waster. Be sure to ask your agent to guide and explain “the right price”. Finding the right price in today’s market is a lot more than your “gut feeling” and your needs. What is one tip you have for someone looking to buy a house? The one tip I have for someone looking to buy a house is to get pre-approved with a good, reputable lender. Your lender can make or break a deal for you! What is the most unusually thing you’ve encountered while working in real estate? The most unusual thing I’ve encountered while working in Real Estate is an “attack cat”! Once, I had a buyer who desperately wanted to see a particular home and this cat would not even allow us to walk through the front door! I have heard of an attack dog before….but an “attack cat?

How to find the right internship R

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

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

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

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

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

Assault Continued from Page 1

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

Disclosing takes time

While more victims have been coming forward in recent years, there are many still hiding in the shadows, and sometimes it can take years to speak out. Gallo said he has encountered adults who have come forward and disclosed things that happened

July 4, 2013 to them in the 1970s, people who now have children of their own, who are finally ready to talk about what they experienced 40 years ago. “We are becoming more aware of the world we’ve always lived in, and that’s an ugly thing,” he said. “But it’s better to be aware of it and try to protect people than say, `we live in this shiny beacon of a community and no child molesters live here.’ There will always be ugliness, but only when you are aware of it can you do something about it.” Knowing how to handle the situation if your child comes forward to you or someone else after being sexually assaulted is also an important thing, Duffy said. “If you think your child has been victimized by any kind of inappropriate sexual behavior, do not handle it yourself, contact us and let us handle it,” he said. “There is still a little bit of a culture out there that these cases are impossible to prosecute, but we will work very diligently to investigate the case and advocate on their behalf.” Duffy said it can be tough on parents if their children disclose to someone else, but he said it is very commonplace, especially in familial cases, that children do not want to hurt their parents by telling them. “It can take years before a child feels comfortable coming to their parent, and that is not always a reflection of the parents,” he said. “It is just a difficult thing to talk about. Even in the greatest atmosphere, it often takes time before a child is ready.”

Hope for recovery?

The Colorado Sex Offender Management Board reports that as of April 1, there were 15,848 registered sex offenders in the state,

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

Four high-profile cases in Douglas County courts The faces behind the cases in Douglas County’s biggest sex assault trials: Frank Lavoie: The former Mountain Vista High School English teacher and wrestling coach was arrested and charged with three felony counts of sex assaults on a child by a person in a position of trust Lavoie in July 2011. Lavoie, 31 at the time of his arrest, was tried in September 2012, and the result was a hung jury. He avoided a retrial after reaching a settlement March 15, in which prosecutors dismissed all three felony counts after he agreed to plead guilty to the promotion of obscenity to a minor. Lavoie was sentenced in May, and agreed to register as a sex offender, was placed under the state’s intensive supervision program for sex offenders and was ordered not to have contact with anyone under 18, including family, until deemed appropriate by his therapists.

Show takes cartoons to art realm ‘Rollin With the Homies’ brings ‘Peanuts’ influence to gallery in Denver By Sonya Ellingboe

if you go “Rollin With the Homies” will be exhibited July 11 to August 19 at Fascination Street Fine Art, 2727 East Third Ave., Denver. Everhart will appear from 6 to 9 pm. July 19 and 1 to 5 pm. July 20.  (RSVP requested on those dates.) 303-333-1592, fascinationstart.com.

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com Artist Tom Everhart enjoyed a long friendship with cartoonist Charles Schulz and was educated in new ways to use his fine art training as he worked in the studio with the “Peanuts” cartoonist. Everhart was encouraged to carry forward Schulz’s comic strip creations into the fine art realm and has exhibited the resulting paintings throughout the world, including at the Louvre in Paris. He will bring a new show, “Rollin With the Homies,” to Denver’s Fascination Street Fine Art from July 11 through August 19, appearing at the gallery from 6 to 9 p.m. July 19 during an opening reception and from 1 to 5 p.m. July 20. Everhart said it is a retrospective of his work as it evolved under Schulz’s influence and will only appear in Denver. In a phone interview, he described early meetings with Schulz. “He took me to his studio and we drew lines: three straight, three fat, three wiggly. He taught me more about lines. When you looked at the same

thing, you could see a difference, see things in a new way …” He observed that “happy may be somewhat deceiving — the work may be more easily explained by what it doesn’t have.” He thinks Schulz’s line work bordered on abstract expressionism at times and talks about how the beloved cartoonist continually referred to Picasso’s multiple-view images, where you see front and side at the same time. “He took you inside the strip — made you walk around,” Everhart said. Early Peanuts strips used perspective and backgrounds, but after 1960, he took it out and made you stay in the foreground, as did abstract painters of the 1960s. Characters are two and a half heads tall, abstracted from the art school formula for drawing people at seven and a half heads tall. “He was always afraid to use the word `abstraction,’ thinking people wouldn’t understand. “What Sparky (Schulz) did — he got me an agreement that I could respond to his

paintings for life.” Although the paintings are recognizable imagery, they have associated meanings, Everhart explains. “Does This Make Me Look Fat?” shows Snoopy blanketed with little flying Woodstocks. It actually speaks to overpopulation, the painter said. “I try to approach his work with different kinds of marks. First, brush strokes. Then dots, circles … It had to evolve and grow, although the subject matter is the same. It feels like he’s alive for me …” The inspiration for the Schulz-related paintings came to Everhart when he was hospitalized, undergoing chemotherapy for cancer. He had a handful of Peanuts comic strips Schulz had sent him in his hands, illuminated by bright light from the window, which almost projected them onto the wall. Schulz stressed that his paintings — and titles — must be different from the cartoons, involving Everhart’s insights and feelings. Each image can be recognized, but is very different. Lithographs of the paintings followed, at Schulz’s suggestion — as a way to get more work out for public view. After Schulz’s death in 2000, Everhart remained in touch with his family and continued to paint in his patterns of dots. Everhart is also consulting on a 3-D “Peanuts” movie that will be coming out soon. He lectures around the world about Schulz and exhibits his own related work.

Author advises reaching within Littleton practitioner spent 15 years on memoir By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com “Happiness is an inside job,” said Angela Lenhardt of Littleton about her intuitive and healing practice. “When you seek from outside sources, you are let down. Our job is to uncover (resources of one’s own).” Lenhardt has written a memoir about her own experiences: “A Charmed Journey: An Inspired Guide to Personal Transformation,” which is available at Tattered Cover and Lakewood’s Mile Hi Church. The face on the cover is hers. She conducts an “intuitive and healing practice,” coaches, speaks at workshops and has an office near Interstate 25 and Hampden Avenue. It took 15 years to complete the book, which was published in November 2012 on her 40th birthday. In the last intensive year, she gave up some of her practice time to

complete it. “Life is unfolding one day at a time,” she adds. She meets people who need help and don’t know where to go — they need resources. She offers a series of six sessions — a package that includes both intuitive and body work and feng shui, drawing on her Eastern and Western experiences. She started out with a business degree, working as a stock trader until her mother passed away unexpectedly 16 years ago. A psychic told her to help people heal, to develop tools such as Reiki and massage. She left the office, studied reflexology, then traveled to Asia, studied at two schools in Thailand and did more spiritual work in China. There were also nutritional classes in the U.S. She has found emotional freedom, but not yet financial freedom, she says as she seeks speaking engagements, book sales and contacts. She can be reached at angelalenhardt@ gmail.com.

Some would say that Steve Weil, thirdgeneration owner of Rockmount Ranch Wear in LoDo, is one smart cookie when it comes to the Western wear biz. But his business brainiac status was put to the test June 26 when Mensa, the international high IQ society, ordered dozens of hats for its July convention in Fort Worth, Texas. This is not the first time they ordered Rockmount hats, according to Weil, president and grandson of Papa Jack (who was definitely a brainiac but used the term “egghead” liberally). Visit Denver spokesmodel Rich Grant also picked up one of the simple straw chapeaus on Wednesday. “I can’t swear that it’s made me smarter, but it’s the smartest looking hat I’ve ever owned,” Grant said. “I wore it while giving a three-mile walking tour to the visiting Japanese travel writers, and was met everywhere downtown with smiles, and compliments on what a `smart’ looking hat it was. I won’t leave home without it!”

Decker, James tie knot

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

Restaurant RIP

When former Rocky Mountain News and Nation’s Restaurant News reporter Dina Berta walked away from her career covering the restaurant industry, she jumped out of the frying pan and into the fire. After a 17-year journalism career, Dina opted to join her husband, Frank, in a new culinary venture — Frank’s Kitchen — at 2600 High St. in Denver’s Whittier neighborhood. Doors opened on May 2011, and closed on June 24. This is what the couple posted on Frank’s Kitchen Diary: Goodbye and thank you. The end happened as quickly as the beginning. Just three years ago Frank was sliding a check across a table to our future landlords and we were in the restaurant business. On Sunday, sitting on the patio of Frank’s Kitchen, the buyer’s accountant was sliding a check over to Frank. It was a down payment to our asking

price. And just like that, we closed our restaurant. For all our stunned customers, friends and supporters let me tell you how we got here. I was not lying when you came in and asked how is the business and I said doing well. After about a year and half it was paying for itself. It probably would have turned the corner in the third year, especially if we obtained a liquor license. It was in the pursuit of a beer and wine license that we came to a realization about who we are and the kind of life we wanted to live. The alcohol licensing was going to take six months. We probably weren’t going to be able to serve beer and wine until November. Our lease is up in December. We needed the warm spring and summer months to recoup the investment in the license and product. That meant we would have to sign a new lease, most likely for five years. The thought of another long-term lease made us both sigh, heavily. A little too heavily. That’s when we knew. We have worked extremely hard and for long hours day in and day out since we opened. Frankly, we’re tired and did not want to keep going. Some people have the restaurant

business in their blood. We had to admit we did not. This was no longer what we wanted to do with our lives. We listed the restaurant for sale on Craigslist.com. Joe Van Dyke, aka “Jammin’ Joe,” a blues guitarist and restaurateur from Virginia was our first serious response to the ad. Jammin’ Joe has owned and or operated several restaurants in his life. He carved out a pretty good reputation for barbecue back east and wants to do the same in Denver. He liked our restaurant and accepted our price. He plans to open in early July. Thank you everyone who supported us in our endeavor. We appreciated it more than you know. And thanks to our awesome employees. A few are staying on with Joe. May God bless all of you.

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

That’s what I tried to get across to the older kids.” That was sometimes difficult. “Yeah, they think it’s all fun and games,” explained Billups. “They come, show up and just shoot the ball up as opposed to working hard, being a good teammate and being a fan of your team and not just yourself. There are a lot of different layers to this game and I don’t think they realize.” Billups, the NBA Finals Most Valuable Player in 2004, also showed campers the reality of the NBA: that if you make big shots, you are rewarded. He puts money on the floor and gives selected players a chance to pick up the

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

Parker man qualifies for PGA tourney Fitzgerald is pro at Aurora’s Murphy Creek By Jim Benton

‘I’m very excited. It’s quite an opportunity to play in a prestigious event.’

jbenton@ourcoloradonews.com Caine Fitzgerald hopes to get together with his childhood friend Zach Johnson sometime prior to the PGA Championship, which is scheduled for Aug. 8-11 at Oak Hill Country Club in Rochester, N.Y. Fitzgerald earned a spot in the PGA field when he tied for 14th place at the PGA Professional National Championship in Sunriver, Ore. The top 20 finishers in the 72-hole Sunriver event that concluded June 27 qualified for the PGA tournament. “I’m very excited,” said Fitzgerald. “It’s quite an opportunity to play in a prestigious event.” Fitzgerald, the Parker resident and assistant golf professional at Aurora’s Murphy Creek Golf Couse, was raised in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, and played golf with Johnson, the 2007 Masters champion and winner of nine Professional Golf Tour tournaments. “I grew up playing golf with Zach Johnson,” explained Fitzger-

Caine Fitzgerald ald. “I’m going to try to reach out to him, whether it be through the country club back home — the head pro there is a friend of mine. I may reach out to him through him or through other avenues. I’d like to play a practice round with him. Just to be around that and see how other people prepare, people that are much more comfortable in that environment, can only benefit me.” Fitzgerald, the 2012 Colorado PGA Professional champion, has wrestled with different emotions about playing in next month’s PGA. “I’ve been struggling with that,” said Fitzgerald. “Initially my thought was it’s going to be neat to go out and play in a PGA Tour event, a major. It’s going to be fun. Then as I think about it more and more, why shouldn’t I have a better mentality and think I’m going

to go out and be successful? How I will handle it when I get there? It’s always easy to say I’m not going to be nervous. Sometimes you don’t get to pick and choose whether you are nervous or not.” Fitzgerald, the 39-year-old lefthander, finished with an even-par 287, which was good enough to be one of the Sunriver qualifiers. He was four-under after the first two rounds, carding a 71 and threeunder 68. He finished with a 75 and 73 and plans to work on his game in the next few weeks. “After Sunriver I felt pretty good,” said Fitzgerald. “I felt I played really well the first couple days and then I managed my game during the last two days. I’ve got a month to prepare for the PGA. Obviously there are some things I’d like to tighten up going into that event, and improve upon. That’s the nature of golf.”

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

Sky Ridge kicks off massive expansion Project will add beds, women’s center, more By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com Two months shy of its 10th birthday, Sky Ridge Medical Center is undergoing its fourth expansion. This one — a $117 million project that will add 90 beds, a women’s center, medical office building, four operating suites and a parking garage by late 2014 — is by far its largest. Sky Ridge kicked off the massive expansion during a June 26 morning ceremony in a hospital parking lot that soon will be part of the construction site. Officials from Lone Tree and Douglas County, including state Rep. Frank McNulty — who brought his Sky Ridge-born daughter, Victoria — watched as dozens of colorful balloons soared into the air past a construction crane to mark the project’s official start. Several of the officials and key medical staff also spoke during the event, many crediting the hospital for much of south suburban Denver’s robust economic health. “When we sold the land, it was in fact the key piece to launch RidgeGate from cows to people,” said Keith Simon, RidgeGate’s director of development. “There’s no doubt

Photo by Jane Reuter RidgeGate is really the key catalyst to development.” “It has been and will continue to be the foundation of the economic engine here in Lone Tree,” Mayor Jim Gunning said, noting the subsequent addition of Lone Tree’s Kaiser Permanente and the University of Colorado medical facilities. “With that of course

comes jobs, very stable jobs.” Sky Ridge CEO Maureen Tarrant verified Gunning’s contention, noting that Sky Ridge jobs pay an average of $33 an hour. Sky Ridge’s reputation extends far beyond Lone Tree, however, said chief of cardiology Dr. Barry Molk. “It’s nationally recognized. It’s nationally

envied,” he said, with high-quality physicians and equipment that “have allowed us to work at the highest level of sophistication.” Dr. Will Choi recently visited a 3,000-bed hospital in Korea and said the 185-bed Sky Ridge performs more spine surgeries. “We’re definitely on a global scale in terms of spine care at Sky Ridge,” he said. More than 28,000 babies have been born at Sky Ridge since its August 2003 opening. To help meet that continuing demand, the project will expand the center’s neonatal intensive care unit, add labor and delivery and post-partum rooms and advance its level of care to include infants as young as 24 weeks. Sky Ridge recently earned an “A” from the Leapfrog Group, a national nonprofit that measures and reports hospital performance. It also is ranked in the 94th percentile nationally for quality and service based on an assessment by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Sky Ridge also has a reputation for aesthetics, landing in 2012 on a list of the nation’s 20 most beautiful hospitals. The expansion will expand the current footprint by about one-third, adding more than 350 new jobs at completion, and about 400 jobs during construction. Sky Ridge now employs more than 1,100 people, with 1,300 physicians on staff.
