Accused shooters tied to vehicle vandalisms Highlands Ranch saw 50-plus cases in fall By Ryan Boldrey

rboldrey@ourcoloradonews.com The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office believes it may have solved the rash of vehicle vandalism crimes that occurred in Highlands Ranch this fall. Nicholas Deters, 20, of Larkspur, and Tyson Olson, 29, of Parker, who were arrested Dec. 7 in Castle Rock following a report of 10 to 15 shots being fired at a vehicle at the Castle Rock Walmart, are being linked to more than 50 crimes in Deters Highlands Ranch that happened from September through November. According to Douglas County Sheriff’s Office Bureau Chief Timothy Moore, the two men admitted to all of the incidents, but the department is still investigating each of the cases in- Olson dividually, and it may take a while due to the high number of incidents. “It started off with a few rocks thrown through some windows over a few weekends in September, led to BB guns shot through windows sporadically across Highlands Ranch during October and November, and then in December we started to see somebody using handguns and highcaliber-powered rifles,” Moore said. The Highlands Ranch incidents occurred all over town and the targets were all vehicles that were parked in streets and driveways outside of residences. “We didn’t really know if there was a connection at first,” Moore said. “We were just kind of surprised by this rash of senseless, irrational damage to people’s private property for no good reason. This was really becoming a big issue.” Moore attributed the bust to the coun-

Police say two local men, Larkspur resident Nicholas Deters and Tyson Olson of Parker, are suspected of dozens of crimes in Highlands Ranch throughout the fall. They were arrested after 10 to 15 shots were fired at a Walmart while shoppers were present. Photo by Chris Michlewicz

‘We didn’t really know if there was a connection at first. We were just kind of surprised by this rash of senseless, irrational damage to people’s private property.’ Douglas County Sheriff ’s Office Bureau Chief Timothy Moore ty’s nine-person Pattern Crimes Unit. The suspects are also being investigated for shooting up construction equipment in Rhyolite Park Nov. 20 in Castle Rock, a vehicle and business kiosk Nov. 26 at Golf Zone in Parker, a second incident at Golf Zone Dec. 1, and shooting out the storefront of Knockouts in Parker and the Kingdom Hall Jehovah Witness Church on Lake Gulch Road in Castle Rock. In addition, Lone Tree police said Denver

Mattress Company and Ed Bozarth Chevrolet were also hit with bullets within the last six weeks. Both businesses are located on Parkway Drive adjacent to C-470, and police say the shots may have been fired from the highway. Deters and Olson, who were riding in a Jeep Liberty at the time of their arrests, were booked on charges of illegal discharge of a firearm, criminal mischief and reckless endangerment.

When two Douglas County School District principals reportedly tested positive for alcohol during breathalyzer tests at an administrators’ meeting, both lost their jobs. When Chief Academic Officer of Elementary Education Dana Strother was arrested for drunken driving after she reportedly drove her car down the wrong side of a street, told police she thought she was in a different city, had trouble standing during a roadside test and blew a .277 during a breathalyzer test, district officials took no action. The difference, they say, is that Strother was not working. Former principals Alan McQueen and Ally Berggren were. Both principals reportedly had attended separate events involving drinking on the night of Dec. 5, then drove the next morning from those locations to the meeting at The Wildlife Experience in Parker, where they were given alcohol breath tests shortly after the meeting began. While district officials won’t reveal the tests’ results, school policy states that reporting for or remaining on duty with an alcohol concentration of .02 or greater is prohibited. The arrest of Strother, who was accused of driving with a blood-alcohol level more than triple the legal limit, also came after a social weeknight evening, a police report says. The report of the 1 a.m. Aug. 17 incident in Norwalk, Iowa, describes Strother driving “into oncoming traffic lanes” after a police officer pulled his car in behind hers, and says the officer stopped a roadside test after 28 seconds “for her safety.” In explaining the principals’ cases, district officials repeatedly emphasized safety among their top concerns. The district’s policy, said DCSD legal counsel Rob Ross, “is there for a reason. It’s there for the safety of students.” No students were present during the Dec. 6 administrators’ meeting at The Wildlife Experience. McQueen, principal at Highlands Ranch’s Heritage Elementary, subsequently was released from his principal duties; Berggren, principal of Buffalo Ridge Elementary in Castle Rock, resigned.

Strother lives, works in Iowa

Strother has been working from her Iowa home since her July 1 hiring, and the district said she plans to move to Douglas County next month. The 37-year-old was charged with operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated, failure to obey a red light and driving on the wrong side of a two-way highway. Court documents show her Nov. 27 sentencing included revocation of her driver’s license, a year’s probation, a $1,250 fine and alcohol classes. Court records say Strother got two days in jail; DCSD spokeswoman Cinamon WatAlcohol continues on Page 6

Former swim coach receives lifetime ban Sheriff ’s office says claims unfounded

SWIMMING CODE OF CONDUCT

By Ryan Boldrey

rboldrey@ourcoloradonews.com Matt Beck, the longtime swim coach with Highlands Ranch Aquatics, has been issued a lifetime ban from USA Swimming for allegations that included inappropriate sexual contact or advances on an athlete by a person in a position of authority. However, the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office investigated and is not pursuing the matter. According to documents on USA Swimming’s website, Beck was banned Aug. 10 for allegedly violating three separate parts of the organization’s code of conduct. Details of Beck’s alleged violations were not released by USA Swimming, which as a private organization has the right to cut ties with any representative or employee at any time at will, with no investigation necessary. Beck, who coached Highlands Ranch Aquatics for 15 years, is one of 74 coaches since 1991 who have received lifetime bans, permanently resigned their memberships or been declared permanently ineligible for membership in USA Swimming. According to Deputy Chad Teller,

• Any sexual contact or advance or other inappropriate sexually oriented behavior or action directed towards an athlete by a coach, official, trainer, or other person who, in the context of swimming, is in a position of authority over that athlete. • Conviction of, imposition of a deferred sentence for, or any plea of guilty or no contest at any time, past or present, or the existence of any pending charges, for (i) any felony, (ii) any offense involving use, possession, distribution or intent to distribute illegal drugs or substances, (iii) any crime involving sexual misconduct, or (iv) any criminal offense against a minor. • Any other material and intentional act, conduct or omission not provided for above, which is detrimental to the image or reputation of USA Swimming, a LSC or the sport of swimming.

spokesman for the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, there is no active investigation into Beck at this time. An investigation by the sheriff’s office was conducted in August after USA Swimming turned its findings over to the office, but Teller said the claims were unfounded and no charges were ever filed. “We do not take this type of thing lightly and swimmer safety is of utmost importance over everything else in this program,” said Jerry Haberkorn, president of the board of directors for Highlands Ranch Aquatics. “That said we have supported Matt in this

investigation based on discussions we have had with Matt and information provided by the Douglas County Sheriff which fully supports his position. “There are bad people in the world and we see that daily in the news. We all must be vigilant for our kid’s sake. I don’t believe we have had one of those (bad) people in our program.” Highlands Ranch Aquatics, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, is based out of Northridge Recreation Center in Highlands Ranch, where the club rents lane space from the Highlands Ranch Community Association. According to HRCA CEO Jerry Flannery, Beck used to work directly for the HRCA, but ties were severed roughly five years ago. Flannery did not disclose details of Beck’s departure from the organization. “We don’t know much about what any of the accusations are,” Flannery said. “What criteria was used in the (USA Swimming) investigation and what the incident was that precipitated this is unknown. “We want to give everyone the opportunity to make sure what is being said is factual. There are a lot of different opinions out there on this and we don’t want to rush to judgment. We’re cognizant of the situation, obviously, and if anything changes we’ll evaluate things as they come up.” Beck, who exchanged emails with the Herald, said that he was advised by his legal team not to speak with the media. A mar-

‘We do not take this type of thing lightly and swimmer safety is of utmost importance.’ Jerry Haberkorn ried father of three, he is not listed on the state’s registry of sex offenders. Eric Eikenberry took over as interim head coach for HRA in August and, according to Haberkorn, will receive strong consideration to become the team’s permanent head coach. The organization will begin its search for Beck’s replacement in January. “Team morale is very high right now despite losing our head coach,” Haberkorn added. “HRA has always been and will continue to be a source of pride in this community. I attribute that to not only the past efforts of Matt Beck, but to strong and committed families and swimmers within the organization. “These are people who care deeply for one another, for the program and for the community as a whole.”

Two fire departments should merge, study says Ultimate goal would be new fire authority By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@ourcoloradonews.com The status quo is not an option, according to a $40,000 study commissioned jointly by Littleton and Englewood to recommend a future for both fire departments. Littleton Fire Rescue serves Highlands Ranch. “Hesitancy or failure to move forward in the face of today’s imposing challenges to local government consigns communities to service erosion and disappointment,” reads the report, presented by James Broman of the consulting firm Emergency Services Consulting International during a joint study session Dec. 10. The fastest solution, says Broman, is to create an intergovernmental agreement, which is how the Littleton/Englewood Wastewater Treatment Plant is managed. But the long-term goal, he says, should be to create a new fire authority. Under an IGA, each agency would retain taxing authority and a high degree of local control, but would save a combined $78,000 right away by streamlining services like administrative and support functions. Englewood Council Member Rick Gillit wondered about uprooting both departments for $39,500 each, but Broman pointed out more would be saved by creating an authority. Ideally, it would include Englewood, Littleton, Littleton Fire Protection District, Highlands Ranch Metro District and possibly Sheridan, which now contracts with Denver. At that point, voters would likely be asked to accept a new property tax to pay for service. Currently, Littleton and Englewood’s departments are funded through sales tax, while Highlands Ranch residents pay a mill levy specifically for fire service, contracted

through LFR. “There are a lot of questions to be answered,” said Littleton Fire Chief John Mullin, while addressing the HRMD board of directors on Dec. 12. “The City of Littleton has a contract with you, and I can’t imagine we would enter into an intergovernmental agreement with Englewood or anybody else without your input. “There is no way Englewood or Littleton can commit you to spending any more or any less money, it just can’t happen. It’s in the contract that we already have. I know that (the IGA) certainly has made some people nervous, but I see it as an opportunity. I think there are some good opportunities for linking up with Englewood to make our service more effective and more efficient.” The suggested fire authority would operate similar to a special district like South Suburban Parks and Recreation, but representatives from each entity would sit on the governing board. Possibilities for combining efforts include dispatch, equipment purchases, training and fire-prevention efforts. With the retirements of Mullin and Fire Chief Mike Pattarozzi of Englewood in the not-so-distant future, an authority would have just one chief. A fire marshal and training chief would be eliminated, leaving one each. ESCI recommends no reduction in operations personnel. ESCI conducted interviews with stakeholders from city councils to firefighters. Many commented on the pride residents have in their departments and worried that combining cultures would be a challenge. But several felt joint operations would result in better planning, leadership and financial stability. The HRMD board of directors did not openly discuss the possible IGA following Mullin’s presentation, but instead went into executive session to address the issue.

More to danger than strangers Law officers, schools collaborate on safety video By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com In the days that followed Jessica Ridgeway’s disappearance in Westminster, some Douglas County parents turned to the school district for help. They wanted to know if it offered a program to help kids understand the threat of strangers. Douglas County Deputy Sheriff Jay Martin stepped up to answer that question. Martin, who leads the office’s Youth, Education and Safety in Schools (YESS)

program, first proposed a PowerPoint presentation. With help from former 9News producer and Douglas County Schools spokesman Randy Barber, Martin’s idea evolved into a video and a collaboration including the Parker, Lone Tree and Castle Rock police departments. Martin and officers from other jurisdictions now are showing it at local elementary schools. “Friendly Faces Fakes Us Out” also can be viewed at the district’s Web site, making it more far-reaching than Martin ever had imagined. Martin alone estimates he’s spoken to more than 6,000 students. The video goes beyond the stranger-danger con-

cept, taking what Martin and Barber say is a more allencompassing, current-day approach. “`Stranger danger’ assumed you didn’t know the person who was threatening you,” Barber said. “This tries to say, appearances aren’t everything. This could be somebody you may have seen around the neighborhood, someone you have a familiarity with. The idea is not to be fearful, but just be aware.” Martin gives students homework, asking them to work with their parents and compile a list of four trusted adults. It also provides instruction for children who are lost, urging them to seek out people with name tags

or adults who have other children with them. “We’re trying to get away from the word `stranger’,” he said. “Unfortunately, we live in a society now where we have to make sure our kids know the people they can trust.” It’s a message Martin delivers with personal passion. In addition to having four children, he experienced an attempted abduction during his childhood. A man began screaming profanities at the then-sixthgrader, ordering Martin to get into his car. “I followed one of my rules, and turned and started running in the opposite direction,” he said. “I ran all the way home.”

Douglas County Sheriff ’s Deputy Jay Martin, a Youth Education and Safety in Schools officer, talks to students at Northeast Elementary School in Parker on Dec. 13 about dangerous strangers. Martin talked to the students about finding trusted adults and paying attention to their instincts. Photo by Courtney Kuhlen

Martin was, however, walking alone, which the presentation advises children not to do. Instead, it suggests using a buddy sys-

tem and emphasizes safety in numbers. For more information or to view the video, visit www. dcsdk12.org/friendlyfaces.

strategies and answer questions from parents and the community. Those who do not receive an invitation to join the town hall may call 877-2282184 and enter passcode 19350 to join the conversation. DCSD is establishing a safety committee that will meet monthly to study additional staff training and several other possible programs. Those may include a school marshal-style program mirroring the airline marshal program in which the district collaborates with law enforcement to employ plain-clothes, armed school marshals that cover an undisclosed number of schools each day. Potential capital improvements aimed at enhancing security may include improved exterior doors, automatic doors or gates that lock in an emergency and prevent an intruder from accessing classroom space, and established safe areas. DCSD is working with the Douglas County Sheriff’s Department, Castle Rock, Lone Tree and Parker police de-

partments on its plans. “We mutually agreed that we need a layered approach, a scaffolding approach to school safety,” Superintendent Elizabeth Fagen said. “We believe that the school marshal program layered with increased police presence and a potential longer-term safety personnel program will provide a very high degree of safety for our schools. “Phase two of our work is about the mental health aspects of what we have learned and will continue to learn about the events at Sandy Hook Elementary. We look forward to adding mental health experts and recommendations to our safety committee soon.” DCSD security already includes locked doors and safety personnel at the front door of each building, school security at all middle and high schools, uniformed school resource officers, marked cars and safety personnel at all high schools, safety and lockdown drills, and many other programs.

Heritage Elementary backers praise former principal Teachers, parents, students rally in Highlands Ranch By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com About 100 teachers, parents and children rallied in support of former Heritage Elementary School Principal Alan McQueen and their school on Dec. 13, a week after McQueen lost his job. With a Douglas County sheriff’s car ensuring their safe passage, the group walked the short distance from Heritage to Highlands Ranch Parkway and Fairview Parkway, where they waved at passing drivers. Several children carried handmade, brightly colored signs, reading “Team McQueen,” “My future matters” and “I miss Mr. McQueen.”

They walked with adults whose signs read, “We (heart) McQueen,” “It’s time to put kids first!” and “Alan McQueen cares 4 kids, Heritage cares 4 Alan McQueen.” Children frequently chanted their former school leader’s name, and several drivers honked in acknowledgment. McQueen abruptly was dismissed from his post, in a move announced Dec. 7, for an alleged violation of the Douglas County School District’s alcohol policy, according to a district email sent to Heritage parents. Buffalo Ridge Elementary principal Ally Berggren resigned at the same time, and a similar district email was sent to parents of Buffalo Ridge students. Berggren’s supporters reportedly held a rally in her honor in Castle Pines at the same time as McQueen’s. Parents and teachers participating in the walk said they were shocked by McQueen’s dismissal

and wanted to pay tribute to a man whose three-year tenure had a deep impact on the school. “The decision is the decision. We can’t change that,” Susan Roscoe, president of Heritage’s Parent Teacher Organization. “I don’t think anybody wouldn’t want him back. But that’s not an option. What we can do is show our support for our school community and continue our vision.” Teacher Kelly Bruetsch said she was walking to show her support for the school during a tough time. She was “shocked and saddened” by McQueen’s departure, and had high praise for him. “He did nothing but good things for Heritage and our kids,” she said. Parent Troy St. Onge, carrying a sign that read, “Heritage is ours, not the board’s,” said he was devastated by the news. “What he has done for our school, the support and leadership he’s brought, has been phe-

nomenal,” he said. Chris Cingrani, former Heritage PTO president and member of its School Advisory Council, helped organize the walk. “This isn’t about being negative,” he said. “It’s about gathering to support Heritage and say thanks to Alan. It’s about closure and moving forward at the same time.” Both Heritage and Castle Rock’s Buffalo Ridge are high-performing schools, outscoring the Douglas County School District average on state tests. SchoolDigger.com, a site that ranks K-12 schools, gives both schools five-star ratings. McQueen and Berggren’s rallies were held at the same time as several union-organized protests against DCSD board actions taken during the last several months. Dozens of DCSD staff members, parents and students gathered on street corners in Parker, Highlands Ranch and Castle Rock

Students, parents and teachers from Heritage Elementary rallied Dec. 13 in support of former principal Alan McQueen, who was fired Dec. 7. Photo by Jane Reuter to wave signs expressing concern about recent DCSD board decisions.

Board president challenges outspoken parent When a parent questioned the dismissal of the Heritage Elementary School Principal Alan McQueen, Douglas County School Board president John Carson instead questioned her. Cristin Patterson, speaking during the public comment portion of the board’s Dec.

13 meeting, said she represented hundreds of parents who felt the situation was poorly handled. “We got the message from (Superintendent Elizabeth) Fagen that no amount of petitions or emails will change the decision to terminate Alan McQueen and that if we

attempt to bring Alan back, it would only result in bad press for our school,” she said. “We believe bad press will indeed come, but only to those deserving of bad press. Bad things happen when good people do nothing. We are good people and we will not `do nothing.’”

Carson questioned Patterson’s assertion that she represented so many others. “You are speaking on behalf of hundreds of parents? I take it they couldn’t make it tonight?” he said. Patterson said she could obtain signatures to support her statement.

School protests expand to multiple sites Gatherings aim to help educate public, union reps say By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com At the same time that people were rallying in Highlands Ranch and Castle Rock in support of two principals, about 75 more gathered in six separate sites during unionorganized protests against the Douglas County School District’s board of education. The peaceful protests on Dec. 13, which were expanded versions of similar events held at the district’s administration building earlier this year, were planned before the abrupt departures of elementary school principals Alan McQueen and Ally Berggren. Teachers, parents and other community members, many of whom brought their children, clustered at well-traveled intersections in Highlands Ranch, Castle Rock, Castle Pines and Parker. The groups displayed banners reading, “Our kids deserve better,” and handmade signs saying, “The Grinch Stole Douglas County Schools” and “DCSD, BOE, OMG!”

The protests preceded the board of education meeting, its last of 2012. Representatives of the teachers’ union, the Douglas County Federation, said they’re trying to let the public know about changes in the district they believe are negatively affecting education. Under the current board of education, the now court-stymied voucher program was introduced, the district’s long-standing agreement with its teachers union expired, a market-based pay system was implemented and controversial pay-for-performance and teacher evaluation systems are under development. Board members and top administrators say the education reform Douglas County is undergoing benefits students and staff. Many teachers and community members disagree. “If nothing else, this will get people talking,” said parent Wendy Vogel, among those protesting at the intersection of Highlands Ranch Parkway and Broadway. “There’s still a ton of people that don’t know what’s going on, and the direction this district is headed in their leadership.” The multi-site protests will continue on board meeting nights, union spokesman Andy Pippin said.

Alcohol: Others have been fired, district says Alcohol continues from Page 1

son said the time actually was spent in a substance-abuse class that began on a Friday night and concluded two days later. Attempts to reach Strother by email were unsuccessful. “A leader who shows up to work under the influence vs. someone who is on their own time and does something outside of work — it’s a completely different situation,” Ross said. “We need to think about the safety of our employees and our students. If you show up on duty, under the influence, we are going to take action, and strong action.” The district’s substance-abuse policy requires immediate suspension and allows for termination if an employee is “knowingly in the possession of or under the influence of alcohol or any controlled substance” while on district property, at any school-sponsored or -sanctioned activity off district property, and on the way to work. The .02 blood alcohol concentration is considered under the influence, according to policy. But it also allows for a variety of corrective action, extending from a formal letter of warning to termination. The action selected depends “on the facts, nature, and severity of the problem to be addressed.”

School board member Craig Richardson said during the board’s Dec. 13 meeting that McQueen’s alleged violation was “egregious” and the district’s actions justified. “There was no other decision to make in this case, absolutely none,” he said. “We simply could not tolerate what occurred. I have supreme confidence that the overwhelming majority of the people who live in this county would agree with the decision-making in this case, if they knew the details.” Ross confirmed McQueen had no record of previous infractions. Sources say Berggren did not either.

Principals not alone

McQueen and Berggren “are not the only employees fired this year for violating the district substance abuse policy,” Watson wrote in an email. “Additionally, Dana Strother is not the only employee that has had a legal issue outside of work and has not been terminated. … Each situation is handled on a case-by-case basis as it arises.” Letters sent to the parents of students at both schools stated the principals had violated the district’s substance-abuse policy. Given their position within the schools, Ross said the district felt parents deserved some explanation for their departures.

McNulty hones in on untested rape kits Outgoing speaker plans bill to require action By Ryan Boldrey

rboldrey@ourcoloradonews.com After learning a high percentage of rape kits are going untested by law enforcement throughout the state, Highlands Ranch Republican state Rep. Frank McNulty plans to introduce legislation at the start of January’s session that would require all kits to be tested. Rape kits, which are federally mandated for use in all sexual assault investigations, contain evidence taken from alleged victims. The process, which can take hours, consists of collecting clothing fibers, hair samples, blood and bodily fluids that may help identify an assailant or provide evidence supporting prosecution during trial. “It’s an arduous process for the victims,” McNulty said. “Talking with some of the

women who have gone through this process, it’s pretty traumatic, and to not use that information to catch criminals and save other women from being future victims, that’s a real problem.” According to a National Institute of Justice report McNulty published in 2011, 18 percent of unsolved alleged sexual assaults that occurred from 2002-2007 contained forensic evidence that remained in police custody, untested. The report states that 44 percent of law enforcement agencies said that one of the reasons they did not send evidence to the lab for analysis was that there was no identified suspect. Fifteen percent said that they did not do so because “analysis had not been requested by a prosecutor.” McNulty said he suspects there are cir-

cumstances under which law enforcement can make a reasonable determination that a kit doesn’t need to be tested, but when talking with folks in the law enforcement community he has asked if opportunities to arrest predators are being missed and the response has been a resounding yes. “Now, they say the numbers are probably small, but to me we have the evidence someplace to connect the dots and put criminals behind bars,” he said. “We need to make sure we are allowing those dots to be connected. Right now they are not.” According to Deputy Chad Teller, spokesman with the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, the Douglas department does not have a running record of the number of untested kits. Each kit is assigned to a specific case and the department does not keep a general file on all of the kits. A Channel 7 investigation, however, showed that in neighboring communities, 44 percent of kits have gone untested by the Denver Police Department since 2008 and 64 percent have gone untested in Jefferson

‘To me, protecting victims from sexual assault has got to be a No. 1 priority.’ State Rep. Frank McNulty County. “To me, protecting victims from sexual assault has got to be a No. 1 priority,” McNulty said. “I understand there are many other things that we ask law enforcement to do, but when we have the evidence sitting there to put bad guys behind bars and to protect people who would otherwise be future victims, we need to be doing it. “Victims of sex assaults shouldn’t have to push or fight to get their sex assault kit tested. We are missing opportunities to protect victims.”

For the second straight year, Centennial Water and Sanitation District customers will see a rate increase on their bills. Following a 2 percent spike in 2012, rates will go up another 3.8 percent in 2013, climbing from $2.65 to $2.75 per 1,000 gallons for up to 100 percent of the allotted budget per user in Highlands Ranch. Wastewater per 1,000 gallons over 3,000 will also go up 10 cents beginning Jan. 1, from $2.55 to $2.65, and there will be a 30cent increase on the bimonthly minimum wastewater fee from $20.65 to $20.95. Bimonthly water service availability fees will remain at $25 for the coming year. According to Bruce Lesback, director of finance and administration with the district, the electrical costs associated with an increased use of groundwater, increase in wages and rising costs of benefits are all behind the rate increases.

“The rates are based on our costs to operate,” he said. “As long as we are not growing significantly with the number of customers and volume of water, you are going to have rate increases every year, there is just no way around it. … It’s always been our philosophy to minimize any increases. We look at every type of alternative we can to reduce expenditures, but expenditures are what they are in the utility business.” To offset some of the electrical costs caused by the increase in groundwater usage, the district is using $500,000 from its financial assurance fund to keep customers from having to foot the entire bill. The financial assurance fund is largely generated by overage fees from those who have gone over their water budget. “The significant increase in groundwater is not normal,” Lesback said, “but we’re not in this type of weather pattern on a normal basis. So instead of passing this entire increase in electrical off, we are only passing part of it off.” A public hearing was held Nov. 26 on the proposed budget and rate changes and no public comments or suggested changes were recommended to the budget at the hearing. The board of directors unanimously approved the 2013 budget at its regular monthly meeting on Dec. 17.

Uncertainty hurts recovery, according to industry leaders South chamber breakfast features panel discussion

County approves budget for 2013 $317 million total has focus on growth, new construction

By Deborah Grigsby

dgrigsby@ourcoloradonews.com Despite having record amounts of cash on hand, businesses are afraid to spend it. At least that’s what a panel of industry leaders at the South Metro Denver Chamber of Commerce 26th annual Economic Forecast Breakfast theorized. “There’s a lot of good signs out there, there’s money on the balance sheets, but there’s also a lot of cash still on the sidelines,” said Mike Matthews, Wells Fargo Denver market president. “The big question out there is, what role will the government play? What’s the fiscal policy going to look like? What’s the tax policy going to look like?” Matthews, along with Al Power, Gates Corp. president and CEO; Gary Campbell, Centura Health president and CEO; Joe Rice, Lockheed Martin Space Systems director of government relations; and Jeppesen President and CEO Mark Van Tine made up a brain trust of local industry leaders gathered, along with more than 800 guests, on Dec. 14 at the Hyatt Regency Denver Tech Center to share views on the future of the economy. The five-member panel fielded questions from moderator Jerry Healey, president and CEO of Colorado Community Media, each presenting an industry-specific twist on what may or may not happen fiscally at the beginning of the year.

Former state Rep. Joe Rice, center, now the director of government relations for Lockheed Martin Space Systems, shares his view on the economy at the 26th annual Economic Forecast Breakfast, held on Dec. 14 at the Hyatt Regency Denver Tech Center. More than 800 people attended the sold-out event. Photo by Deborah Grigsby “It’s not a question of if it’s resolved,” said Rice of the looming fiscal cliff, the conundrum the government faces Jan. 1 when the terms of the Budget Control Act of 2011 are set to go into effect. “It’s more of how it will be addressed.” According to Rice, Lockheed has plenty to lose should the nation tumble over the fiscal cliff, pointing out Lockheed’s major customers are government and defense contractors such as the Air Force. While technology plays a significant role in bolstering the financial future, it too can’t move forward without confident investors, said Van Tine, suggesting one of the more certain places to invest may be internally. “I think one of the best investments you can make is in investing

in your own business,” he said. “It’s like having money in your pocket and just waiting for someone to come and tell you it’s OK to spend it.” But even as fiscal cliff negotiations progress in Washington, the panel agreed the real key to freeing up cubbyholed cash lies in knowing what lies ahead — good or bad. Colorado’s diverse economic base has helped it survive, according to John Brackney, chamber president and CEO. Pent-up momentum was a consistent thread throughout the morning discussion. “We’ll probably see a slow start to 2013,”said Matthews. “Hopefully, with more certainty, we’ll see more cash come back into the market.”

Douglas County commissioners have approved the 2013 budget, with a focus on future growth. The $317.3 million budget was approved Dec. 11, and is an increase of $62.8 million from the 2012 budget. The new budget includes anticipated revenues of $230.9 million, which represents a $7.1 million increase in revenues from 2012. Increases expected in the county’s revenues stem from a rise in property values due to new growth, according to the county’s finance department. Significant projects that bumped property values in Douglas County for 2012 included the new construction at Castle Rock Adventist Health Campus, the Centura hospital in Castle Rock, valued at $41.5 million; construction of the Ridgegate Apartments in Lone Tree, valued at $28.6 million; and construction of the Shea Center Apartments in Highlands Ranch, with a $9 million valuation. Anticipated revenue growth in 2013 includes a $2.1 increase in property tax revenues and a $4.1 million increase in sales

and use tax. Property taxes and sales and use taxes comprise 64 percent of the county’s annual revenue, according to the county’s finance department. The $317.3 million in anticipated expenditures for 2013 includes $122.4 million in capital projects. The bulk of capital improvements are expected to come by way of road improvement projects, budgeted for $95.2 million; improvements at the Robert A. Christensen Justice Center for $19.1 million; and improvements in the county’s technology department, with a funding increase in 2013 of $4.3 million for software, infrastructure and security upgrades, according to the county’s finance department. Changes in the adopted budget from the preliminary budget include $985,000 added to contribute to improvements at the Highlands Ranch Mansion; a $300,000 reduction to omit an intended improvement to the synthetic turf at Dupont Park; $250,000 added for the design and construction of a mountain bike skills course at Bayou Gulch Regional Park; and $175,000 added for the construction of the Columbine bridge in Columbine Open Space, said Martha Marshall, Douglas County budget manager.

OPINIONS / YOURS AND OURS

Joey Chestnut’s on an open fire, and bowl games That’s not a typo in the headline. There is a guy named Joey Chestnut. He is a nearrecord setting Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest champion. He once ate 68 hot dogs in 12 minutes. By the time Alabama and Notre Dame have taken off their shoulder pads on Jan. 7, it may seem as if we have metaphorically eaten 68 hot dogs in a short period of time too. Thirty-five bowl games were scheduled. That means 70 Division I teams. I now cringe at the words “bowl eligible.” They simply mean that a team managed to win at least 6 out of 12 games. Big wow. When I was a kid there were four bowl games and all of them were played on Jan. 1. They had discreet names like Rose, Cotton, Sugar and Orange. The Gator Bowl came along, and so did the Liberty Bowl and the Sun Bowl. I always felt like they were outsiders. Before you knew it bowl games started to sprout like something in a bad greenhouse. And they all took sponsors and names that sounded like something Monty Python had

made up. There’s now one called Belk Bowl. I am not kidding. My favorite (or least favorite) is called Bridgepoint Education Holiday Bowl. We all know why there has been this heinous proliferation of bowl games: $. Division I college football is the only college sport that doesn’t have a playoff arrangement. It makes no sense. There is no logical argument against it. They somehow manage to have playoffs in D-II and D-III. And Pop Warner, and Colorado state 5A, 4A, 3A, 2A, and six-man. The levels of selfishness and imbecility are felt by all of us, except sponsors, some

parents and girlfriends, and the nutcake alumni at Nowhere State that went 6-6. If a coach and a team go to a bowl game, it becomes an implied achievement, and the coaches can negotiate it into their contracts, even if their records might have included losses to North South Dakota State and South North Dakota State. I used to love college football. Maybe I would have lost a lot of interest over time no matter what. And if it all really bothers me, why not just read a book, or take a walk, instead of investing my time on a lost cause? But if I did either of those I would have one less topic to write about. Would you really want to know what I was reading on Jan. 7? Milton’s “Paradise Lost.” Now that would be a joy to read about. My alma mater played in a minor bowl a few years ago. I wore my sweatshirt and cheered. We won. And then I asked myself, “Who really cared about whether we won or lost or played or whom the sponsor was or what the game-time temperature was or much of anything else?” Maybe bettors.

There’s a line on every game, all 35, no matter what the teams’ records were, and there will always be bettors, because there will always be money to be made. If we can’t have the logic of a playoff system, perhaps we could have bowls that were more fascinating. A Zen Bowl might be fun. The Metaphysical Bowl. A Dysfunctionally Officiated Bowl, where there might be penalties for illegal team colors, or for getting in a prevent defense during the National Anthem. One thing has improved. When I was a kid we watched the four bowl games on a blonde Philco. If any of the games overlapped, and you wanted to switch, you had to get up, walk across the room, and change the channel. One year my father had the bright idea of buying a second television, which sat next to the blonde Philco. Craig Marshall Smith is an artist, educator and Highlands Ranch resident.

Corruption in Afghanistan

Hope, encouragement, success and Zig Ziglar “The doors of hope swing widest on the hinges of encouragement” — Zig Ziglar Born in 1926 and passed away in November 2012. And somewhere along the way, Zig Ziglar went from selling pots and pans door-to-door, to being considered the world’s ambassador of hope, encouragement, motivation and success. As you read my thoughts this week, please do so under the umbrella of success. Because at the end of the day, Zig Ziglar was about success and helping individuals, small business owners and large corporations succeed. So whether we grew personally, professionally or spiritually because of Zig, that would have been his definition of success. Yes, this is a tribute column to a man who has changed millions of lives for the better. And yes, that is millions with an “M.” For each one of us whose life has been positively impacted by Mr. Ziglar, we certainly care about the other 999,999-plus people who have experienced a positive change in some way because of Zig, but we are intimately familiar with how he was able to influence and change our own personal situation. I attended his funeral and memorial service. It was a sad, happy, motivating and inspiring event. Kind of like what you would absolutely come to expect from Zig Ziglar, even as he left this world and entered eternity. During the services, people in attendance and even those who spoke during the service used one-word descriptors of Zig to try and capture his essence and who he was as a man, a husband, a father, a friend, a coach, a motivator and a believer in God. Words like coach, teacher, motiva-

Last year I began pushing for a congressional investigation into allegations of corruption and mismanagement at a U.S.sponsored Afghan National Army hospital, known as the Dawood National Military Hospital, in Kabul. I did this after a story broke in the Wall Street Journal about senior Afghan medical personnel selling U.S. military medical aid on the black market. Afghan soldiers and police were dying at the U.S.-sponsored Dawood Hospital from untreated wounds and malnutrition because their families couldn’t come up with the necessary bribes to pay the hospital staff in order for them to get the care that they needed. The investigation culminated in two hearings, on July 28 and September 12, 2012, by a subcommittee of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee chaired by Congressman Jason Chaffetz of Utah. More information can be found by going to http://oversight.house.gov. The conclusion anyone listening to the testimony can easily reach is that the Afghan Surgeon General, Gen. Ahmed Zia Yaftali, was complicit in the corruption and that U.S. Army Lt. Gen. William Caldwell not only delayed an investigation to shield the administration from any political embarrassment prior to the 2010 midterm elections, but he purposely limited the scope of the investigation when it did occur in order to shift the focus away from the obvious issue of corruption. It is unfortunate that, despite the chairman’s recommendations, the Department of Defense has refused to fully investigate

tor, consistent, encourager, leader, salesman, genuine, Christian and mentor were shared and accurate. In his speeches, Mr. Ziglar focused on five key areas of life: Healthy Self Image, Positive Attitude, Winning Relationships, Setting and Achieving Goals, and Hope. Now it didn’t matter what your role was in life or what job you had or who you were related to, his message was meant for every single person on this planet no matter who you were and where you were from. Race, religious belief, family history, work history, past, present, or future didn’t matter to Zig because his purpose, his passion and his intent was to be a difference maker in the lives of each and every one of us. For those of you who read my column each week, I feel like even though you may have never met Mr. Ziglar, you do know him and have known him ever since I started writing this column. I say that with confidence because everything that I write, even though they come from my personal experience and observations each week, are founded, grounded and based on the impact Zig Ziglar has had on me for the past 26 years.

the conduct of Caldwell and the Afghan government has also refused to prosecute Yaftali. Unfortunately, I believe that the behavior of General Caldwell in Afghanistan — either a lack of leadership or a willingness to look the other way while Afghan officials are free to steal from the American taxpayers with impunity — is not uncommon. The Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR) found significant problems in Afghanistan with “fraud with construction and maintenance contracts, procurement, public corruption and bribery, and theft of property and services.” Last week I was in Afghanistan and I visited the hospital. The visit reminded me of what it was like for me when I was in the military and had to stand inspections. Medical personnel stood at attention in clean uniforms eager to tell me what their job descriptions were and to show me what equipment they had, and they even took me to patients who were being respectfully and professionally cared for.

Year-end tax advantages for 2012 This year is quickly coming to a close. There are only a few weeks left to make changes for the tax year. Here are some guidelines to help reduce taxes now or in the future. This year we had some nice positive surprises on Wall Street considering all the bad news the media was pushing. Debt problems in Europe, austerity measures in Greece, a significant drop in growth in China and our own political bickering could have brought the stock market to its knees. However we had double-digit returns in most equities, including foreign holdings, and many bond portfolios had above-average returns as well. If you followed our tax planning from last year, you would have taken tax losses from unwanted investments in 2011. You can now use up some of those losses that carried forward and adjust your portfolio once again. While tax loss harvesting remains a good tax saving strategy, this year the goal may be to rack up as many long-term capital gains as possible before the current tax law expires. You can take up to $3,000 each year as a loss against your ordinary income or 100 percent of losses against investment gains.

Review your account and search for longterm capital gains that can be harvested this year. This will push the tax liability into 2012 before the possible increase in capital gains taxes in the future. This is a great strategy that can offset losses, step up your cost basis and realign your portfolio all at once. Current tax law allows both qualified dividends and capital gains on assets held more than a year to be taxed at the 15 percent limit or lower, depending on your tax bracket. Consider realizing capital gains in a child’s account where the capital gains rate may actually be zero this year. You may also consider converting a traditional IRA into a Roth IRA. While indi-

Norton: Remember to encourage others Norton continues from Page 10

“The doors of hope swing widest on the hinges of encouragement.” I remember the first time I heard Zig say this. He was the master encourager, the ambassador of hope, and the most genuine and consistent man I have ever had the blessing and privilege to know and work for. My hope and my encouragement to you is to keep looking for ways to encourage others, build them up, inspire and motivate them, and help them become the person that you know and that they will soon discover that they are meant to be. “You can have everything in this world that you want, just as long as you help enough other people get what they want.” This is Zig’s most famous quote, and I am here as living proof that he lived this principle every day of his life. He helped me become the man, the husband, the dad, the friend, the employee and the believer in God that I am today, and I will be eternally grateful. For many years I have heard hundreds if not thousands of Zig Ziglar stories from people all over the world. Anyone who ever had a history, or encounter at a seminar, or just read his books or listened to his audio programs all shared what that meant. I would love to hear your Zig Ziglar story at gotonorton@gmail.com, and when we all look forward with hope it will be a better than good week. Michael Norton, a resident of Highlands Ranch, is the former president of the Zig Ziglar organization and CEO and founder of www.candogo.com

Coffman: Widespread corruption is threat to future of Afghanistan Coffman continues from Page 10

is impossible for me to know the real story about current conditions at the facility since the hospital staff has put on such performances before and then reverted back to their corrupt practices as soon as the oversight pressure on them was lifted. The corruption at the Dawood National Military Hospital is not isolated but representative of a much larger problem of corruption. I left Afghanistan confirming my belief that the greatest threat to the future of the country is not the Taliban but the pervasive corruption that permeates every level of Afghan governance along with the lack of leadership by the United States in confronting it. In the hearing on July 24, 2012, one of the officers who first reported the abuses at the hospital and was rebuffed by Caldwell, commented that in the Afghan culture when you are haggling over the price at a bazaar the seller will only take you seriously when he knows you are prepared to walk away. We must set firm benchmarks in place for combating corruption and if they fail to reach them we must be prepared to stop funding the Afghan government and walk away. U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman serves Colorado’s 6th Congressional District.

vidual situations vary, this would be a good year to volunteer to pay the taxes at current rates on IRA assets and convert them into a Roth before rates increase. Given that the income limits are waived for conversions, even high wage earners may feel this year has potentially lower tax rates. Distributions after age 59½ are tax-free if the Roth account is held for five years. This pushes the future gain into a tax-free status which could last a lifetime or longer to a beneficiary. Review your accounts at work and maximize your pre-tax contributions. This will help to reduce your taxable income for the year and you could put more money to work. The maximum contribution this year is $17,000 in a 401(k) with an extra $5,500 catch-up if you are over age 50. Beginning in 2013, these numbers have been indexed up to $17,500 with the same catch-up provision. IRA limits also increased by $500. Self-employed individuals may have a better advantage if they have the cash flow to fund their individual 401(k) accounts up to $50,000 plus the $5,500 catch-up if eligible. The plan must be opened by year-end, which may be different than other self-em-

ployed plans. Parents or relatives funding a college plan that is eligible for the state income tax deduction may want to maximize their contribution before year-end. You can put in up to $13,000 per child without filing a gift-tax return. Review your spending for 2012 and plan a budget for the New Year. Plan early to have enough savings to fund retirement and college. Meet with your advisor to design a strategy for the future, which may include rising taxes and inflation. The new tax laws and economic recovery may require a different investment strategy in the coming year.

Lee Van Ramshorst dies at 73 Resident took active role in shaping Lone Tree By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com Longtime Lone Tree resident Lee Van Ramshorst died Dec. 12. Services were held Dec. 18 at the Lone Tree Arts Center. Van Ramshorst, 73, had battled cancer for several years. He and his wife Sharon, a former Lone Tree City Council member, were among the first residents of what is now Lone Tree. They bought a lot in what was then the new Lone Tree golf course development on Memorial Day Weekend in 1982, the first weekend the developer began selling lots. Van Ramshorst was instrumental in the City of Lone Tree’s formation, stepping up to serve on the Park Meadows Metropolitan District board when he saw the planned development was not taking shape as promised, his wife said. “We very quickly figured out that what was advertised as being in Lone Tree was not happening,” Sharon said. “We felt like we needed to get involved. Lee got on the board, which was controlled by developers. He was devoted to trying to make this a good neighborhood, and a good place to live.” Eventually, she said, the board’s makeup shifted to community mem-

He worked hard to get things in Lone Tree done with quality.” Van Ramshorst founded the Lone Tree Photography Club in 2002, and the Lone Tree Hiking Club in 2011. He

was an avid outdoorsman and enjoyed hiking and skiing. Van Ramshorst volunteered to help build the Colorado Trail and with Douglas County’s Open Space program. Van Ramshorst was born and raised in Chicago Heights, Ill. After earning a degree in mechanical engineering, he worked for Pan-America Petroleum in Liberal, Kan., where he met Sharon. The Van Ramshorsts have two children: Sabrina, of Houston, and Scott, of Castle Rock, plus six grandchildren. They were married for 47 years.

Where were you born? I was born in Harrisburg, a small town in South Illinois. However, I have always held Colorado dear to my heart. How long have you lived in the area?

“Above and Beyond Service” award and this year I was greatly honored to be awarded DERA’s 2012 “REALTOR of the Year”.

What is your specialty and what does that mean for the people you work with? My colleagues and I are skilled and licensed to facilitate any real estate transaction whether residential or commercial.

What is the most challenging part of what you do? One word: Inventory. Sales volume is up in Douglas County 40.2% since September 2011. I have many buyers and there is very little to buy.

I love hiking, biking, gardening, cooking, camping, traveling and spending time with family and friends. What is one tip you have for someone looking to sell a house?

HOME PRICES ON

Q

: I’ve been reading that after a few years of price declines that housing is starting to appreciate again and that rents are on the rise because of low vacancy rates. That seems like an ideal time to buy. Should I be looking at buying instead of renting and if so what should I do to get started? : First, you are correct that home prices are on the rise as available inventory has dropped to less than 40% of where it was just a few years ago. And with stricter lending standards fewer people are qualified to purchase forcing them into the rental market thereby driving vacancies

down and rents up. Fortunately the Federal Reserve has been supporting the housing industry through a variety of measures aimed at driving interest rates down. The result is that interest rates are at or near 60 year lows. Therefore, with housing prices still depressed from prior levels the affordability of homes is still near a record. So now IS

a great time to buy, especially given the potential for appreciation that you can capture by buying, and the tax benefits that come with buying. Over the long term you will find that buying versus renting can be tremendously beneficial to buyers. But don’t do so on your own. The first step you should take when considering pur-

chasing is locating an experienced, trustworthy, financially savvy lender (rather than a broker who will be at the mercy, along with you, of underwriters outside their control) that you can meet face-to-face, that has access to the full spectrum of loan programs that they can customize to your needs (not an off-the-shelf, one-size-fits-all

Hundreds of thousands of lights decorate Hudson Gardens’ thirty-acre site as part of “A Hudson Christmas.” Photos by Courtney Kuhlen

Starry nights, twinkling lights Holidays shine at Hudson Gardens By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com Bring mittens, hat and scarf. It won’t be a “one-horse open sleigh,” but there is the option of a ride in a horse-drawn carriage through part of Hudson Gardens’ brightly lit 30 acres during “A Hudson Christmas.” The remainder of the property can be visited on foot as one looks up at the special “Aurora Borealis” effect in the tall cottonwoods, or straight ahead to lighted shrubbery and smaller trees. And then, there are dazzling fountains, which offer a different effect as they play with the lights. How did they do that? Hudson Gardens’ executive director Rich Meredith said that Swingle Tree and Landscape Co., which maintains many area properties through the warm months, considers holiday lighting a large portion of its business. They illuminate Denver Botanic Gardens and its Chatfield branch, as well as the town of Parker, he said — and now Hudson Gardens and Event Center.

When the longtime owner of the Lancer Lounge opted to shutter the neighborhood place at 233 E. Seventh Ave. after succumbing to personal financial pressures, it was no surprise that Denver restaurant mogul Frank Bonanno would take over the seedy space. Nestled between Bonanno’s fine dining spot Mizuna and noodle house Bones, and just around the corner from Luca d’Italia, it only made sense to brand the block as Bonanno’s. So six weeks ago, Lancer started morphing into Vesper Lounge with a limited menu, crafted cocktails, beers in cans and on tap, nightly happy hours from 4 to 6 p.m. and 11 to 1 p.m. plus all day Monday, along with savory snacks. I checked out the place last week along with Bonanno PR gal Lauren Hendrick and Westword editor Patty Calhoun to see Bonanno’s interpretation of the famous dive bar. Have no fear, Vesper isn’t a yuppie bar but rather a cleaned-up version of its old self with upholstered booths from the recently shuttered Ambria restaurant that were sold in auction. New kitschy touches include religious candles from Mexico scattered around the walls. Vesper’s menu items include “Cheeseburger! Cheeseburger! Cheeseburger!” (fries, no chips, with or without cheese), a potpourri of sandwiches such as a classic club, marinated fish or shaved Colorado lamb pita, Greek lamb patty, gyro, meats on stick and dips served with warm pita. More information: facebook.com/VesperLounge. Next up for Bonanno Concepts: a first venture into the suburbs with Bonanno Brothers Pizzeria, which will open at The Vistas at Park Meadow in Lone Tree early next year.

Jackson’s joins Celebrity Lanes

Members of The Choralary sing carols Dec. 15 during “A Hudson Christmas.” The display will be open nightly from 5:30-8:30 p.m. through Jan. 1, including

Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day, with the last tickets sold at 8 p.m. If one walks the entire path, it’s about a half-mile, or one can head toward the barn in the northwest corner and find a horse and wagon for $6 per person to traverse part of the grounds. Paths are firm enough for strollers and wheelchairs. On some evenings, choral groups will perform on a stage in front of the Hudson Residence, Meredith said, but scheduling is a work in progress. Call for information, 303-797-8565 x 324. Hot cocoa and wassail will be available at a couple of locations.

IF YOU GO

Four-year-old Lola checks out a Christmas tree made entirely out of lights and ornaments at Hudson Gardens during the venue’s “A Hudson Christmas” holiday display.

Hudson Gardens is located at 6115 S. Santa Fe Drive, Littleton. It is a half-mile south of Bowles Ave. and three miles north of C-470, on the west side of Santa Fe Drive, across from Arapahoe Community College’s south entrance, where there is a traffic light. Plenty of free parking. Tickets cost $9/adults, $7/members, $6/children ages 4-12, under 3 free. They may be purchased in advance at tickethorse. com or at the door.

Celebrity Lanes, the 40-lane bowling alley, kid zone, arcade, tap house, sports grill and outdoor bocce ball facility that opened at Centennial Center (on the northwest corner of East Arapahoe and South Parker roads) last year, has changed the restaurant operator to Jackson’s All American Sports Grill. Kelmore Development is the owner and developer of the project. I’m told that the bowling alley is busy, and that now, thanks to Jackson’s, so is the restaurant space. The project is a $13 million, 50,000-square-foot family entertainment center.

3D Printing Store premieres

I’m easily amazed by new technology — something I struggle at best to keep up with. So “amazing” is the most appropriate word to describe 3D Printing, Colorado’s first 3D printing store that just opened at 4603 Monaco St. There is currently one location, but look for pop-up versions of the 3d Printing Store springing up after the first of the year. Recently, I had a sneak peek of the hightech store that prints everything from machinery parts to bracelets. Co-founder Debra Wilcox, along with young entrepreneur David Perleberg, are some of the partners behind the new venture. In addition to trinkets, the 3D printing process holds promise for medicine, health, inventors, artists and industrial prototyping. Wilcox and Perleberg are already working with inventors anxious to prototype Parker continues on Page 21

Winter Words Writing Workshop planned Instructor Mary Young is noted nature writer By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com Author/teacher Mary Taylor Young of Castle Rock has been publishing books about Western wildlife, nature and landscape since 1987 and sharing her skills with others since 1988. Her most recent of 14 books is “Guide to Colorado Mammals,” telling us about bats, bears, bighorn sheep and many more inhabitants that share the state — with species profiles, range maps, field notes and Young photographs. She is working on a book about Rocky Mountain National Park’s upcoming 100th anniversary, due in 2014. Next on her agenda will be the seventh Winter Words Writing Workshop, Feb. 22-24 in Estes Park, which invites writers to gather in a beautiful place “to share meals, conversation and a love of writing.” Limited to 10 participants, it’s planned for those who write, or want to write, fiction, memoir, creative or narrative nonfiction, nature writing and more.

Writer Mary Taylor Young had a previous workshop that drew an interested spectator. Courtesy photo Participants will submit 15 pages of a work-in-progress by Feb. 1, and the group will analyze and consider it, in addition to soaking up a lecture on the craft of writing and enjoying some outdoor time if they wish. The atmosphere is friendly and keeping the group small allows for an in-depth look at each submission. Think instant critique group. Taylor’s love affair with Rocky Mountain Park had its start in summers spent there at her grandparent’s cabin.

She roamed, encountered wildlife and plants and learned to record with camera and words. Writers will stay at McGregor Mountain Lodge, bordering Rocky Mountain Park. The workshop cost is $264 (Hotel is additional-contact the lodge.) For information and/or brochure, contact Young: MaryTaylorYoung. com, 303-660-4960. Taylor says the workshop will be held regardless of weather — unless the snowstorm of the millennium occurs.

A good life lived

The public is invited to a Celebration of Life in memory of community leader and philanthropist Linda Goto at 2 p.m. Jan. 27 in the Seawell Ballroom at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts. Goto, 70, died recently at Sky Ridge Medical Center of

pneumonia. She had also quietly battled leukemia for several years. Most recently, Goto worked as an event planner for The Denver Hospice, where she coordinated its largest fundraiser, the biannual Mask Project. Goto was as beautiful on the outside as she was on the inside, and her grace and generosity will be sorely missed.

versatile artist spent his last years painting marine subjects. According to biographical material from the David Cook Gallery in Denver, which carries his work, he came to Denver in 1876 with his mother and two sisters. It was hoped that the Colorado air would cure the sisters’ tuberculosis — a frequent reason for arrival in Colorado at that time, before drugs were available to cure the disease. He found a job with the Chain and Hardy Bookstore and received his only art training from the owner’s wife, artist Helen Chain, who introduced him to area artists, including Alexander Phiminster Proctor. He and Proctor went on a three-month camping trip, where both developed many sketches, transformed into paintings in the studio — they shared a studio for a short while, before Proctor moved to New York. Adams married in 1890 and opened a studio on Larimer Street in Denver. He did business card watercolors and crayon portraits and was a charter member of the Denver Artists Club. He constructed a home and studio for the couple in Estes Park in 1905, called “The Sketch Box,” where the family spent their summers — and Adams painted many of the Rocky Mountain National Park and Longs Peak scenes.

Grocery-store pony still best bet in town Penny ride is 65-year legacy of King Soopers’ founder By Deborah Grigsby

dgrigsby@ourcoloradonews.com If one ever had to place a bet on a horse to win, the penny pony at King Soopers would have to be it. And while the little plastic pony doesn’t pay off in cash, it does hit the jackpot in childhood memories. With no virtual gadgets or high-resolution screens, the old-school mechanical kiddie ride has been a doorway staple for the supermarket giant for more than six decades. “The penny pony has been around ever since King Soopers was founded in 1947,” said Rhonda Remy, corporate communications manager. “It was the request of our founder, Lloyd King, that there be a pony in every store, and that it always remain a penny to ride it.” Born in Kansas, King opened the first King Soopers store on June 20, 1947, in Arvada, pioneering several innovations that changed the grocery industry, including an

The penny pony at King Soppers has been a sure bet for more than 60 years. Here, five-year-old Sloane Donahue enjoys the pony at King Soopers Store No. 100 in Greenwood Villages. Her father rode a similar plastic steed more than 30 years ago at a King Soopers in Denver. Photo by Deborah Grigsby in-store pharmacy and a self-service meat department. According to Remy, King Soopers now has 107 stores in the Denver metropolitan

area, each with its own penny pony. The ponies are maintained and repaired by Round Up Music, a Sterling company that specializes in jukeboxes, arcade games

and kiddie rides, said Remy, who also believes the company is the original provider of the ponies. Calls to Round Up Music were not returned. Although clunky and slow, even the most techno-savvy tots can’t resist the lure of a two-minute ride. “We have to ride it every time we’re in here,” shopper Chris Donahue said of his two children, Marek, 3, and Sloane, 5. “I think it’s just kind of neat that the pony’s still around and still costs a penny.” Donahue admits the pony takes him down memory lane, too. “When I was a kid, I used to ride the same penny pony, but at the King Soopers at Havana and Mississippi,” he said. “I was with my grandparents and it was a penny to ride, back then, so it’s nice to see my kids doing the same thing.” At the time of the pony’s introduction to King Soopers, a loaf of bread cost somewhere around 13 cents. A loaf of bread now averages $3.25. Inflation aside, Remy said the pony will follow King’s wish and remain a penny to ride. Donahue said the problem is remembering to have a handful of copper coins to feed to pony. “Yeah, it’s always a bad day when we don’t have any pennies.”

Entertainment District vision unfolds ing, critics have said, and the businesses are arranged so that some are tucked almost out of sight behind others. A recommended plaza and walkway would create a pedestrian link among those businesses north of Park Meadows Drive from Yosemite Street to the movie theater. “It should be a very pedestrian, warm, wonderful place to be,” Ward said, “a place you want to take your kids, a place where you want to have a drink before the movie.” Park Meadows Drive could be redesigned with bicycle lanes, broader sidewalks and traffic calming devices. A trail on the street’s south side that winds through a drainage also could be significantly enhanced to becomes its own draw and encourage more pedestrian access. But for any of it to happen, ULI said the city must take the lead and bring the district’s 40-plus property owners together. All of them, planners said, must buy into the vision to ensure its success. “It’s going to take a financial investment on behalf of everyone,” Ward said. City leaders now are considering their next step. “We have a lot to consider,” Councilmember Susan Squyer said. “I think we owe it to our citizens to make that a really attractive place.” Lone Tree paid ULI $20,000 for the study. ULI is an international nonprofit that brings together teams of experts to study and advise communities on responsible, sustainable land use.

Land planners call for walkways, financial buy-in By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com In land planners’ vision, the area now known as Lone Tree’s Entertainment District would boast a promenade-style walkway with fountains, play areas and greenery. The amenities would link businesses and tempt visitors into not just lingering, but making it a destination point. A redesigned Park Meadows Drive, the thoroughfare that serves it, likewise would prompt drivers to slow down, look around and pull into the area to explore all it has to offer. That’s the future that the planners outlined during Lone Tree City Council’s Dec. 3 meeting. The detailed presentation from the Urban Land Institute left council members and several business owners in attendance feeling optimistic. “We have good bones in the Entertainment District, and a great opportunity,” said Ken Marsh, owner of the Bridge Centers building that houses Panera Bread. “We’d like to do something that will lift the Entertainment District and lighten it up.” The commercial area southeast of Yosemite along Park Meadows Drive offers a broad menu of fun, including a movie the-

tmunds@ourcoloradonews.com Several hundred people braved chilly weather to attend the Wreaths Across America ceremonies at Fort Logan National Cemetery. Wreaths Across America began in 1992 when the owner of Worcester Wreath Co. in Maine discovered the company had a surplus of holiday wreaths. The owner arranged to have the wreaths taken and placed on graves at Arlington National Cemetery to remember the veterans there, honor them and to teach younger generations about the value of their freedoms. The program remained largely unchanged until 2005, when it received national attention. The demand for wreaths grew beyond what the company could donate, so a program was established for sponsoring wreaths at a cost of $15 per wreath. Those taking part in the Fort Logan ceremonies on Dec. 15 included military personnel, veterans’ groups like the Scottish American Veterans, and civilians including members of the Patriot Guard. There were about an equal number of young men and women of the Civil Air Patrol, the Young Marines, the Boy Scouts and the Girl Scouts taking part in the event. In addition, there were numerous individuals and groups who had volunteered to place the 1,100 wreaths on the graves of veterans.

Eagle Scout Ethan Pfeiffer stands at ease in front of fellow members who make up the Boy Scout Troop 316 color guard. The Scouts were part of the Wreaths Across America ceremonies Dec. 15 at Fort Logan National Cemetery. Ralph Nations, who was master of ceremonies, said the Fort Logan event has been part of the national program for several years. The ceremonies began with a color guard presenting the flags and representatives of each service placing a wreath. Nations then introduced the families and Gold Star mothers attending the service, and read a list of the men who died in combat fighting terrorism. That was followed by speeches, a 21-gun salute, bugles playing “Taps” and bagpipers playing “Amazing Grace.” Volunteers then stepped up to place the 1,100 wreaths, which could only be placed on a small percentage

of the 80,000 graves at Fort Logan. Some placing wreaths were families of the veterans, and there were wreaths designated for the graves of veterans who have died in Afghanistan and Iraq. The undesignated wreaths were taken and placed on veterans’ graves in the area around the ceremony. Eagle Scout Ethan Pfeiffer joined fellow members of Littleton’s Boy Scout Troop 361 who lined the road holding American flags during the ceremony. “My family has a history of military service, so I feel honored to be there today,” the Arapahoe High School senior said. “It meant a lot to be part of these ceremonies. I feel it is a way to volunteer my time to honor the veterans for what they have done for our country.” Cindy Fellows held a wreath close to her as she walked to the grave of a Vietnam veteran nearby. She said she is an Army veteran who served in Iraq and volunteered to place wreaths when she heard about the program. “I like to do anything I can to honor veterans,” the Centennial resident said. “I didn’t even know about the Wreaths Over America program until a friend told me about today’s ceremony. I am so glad I came. It is a special program and I am honored to be part of it.” Young John Paul Justius was also a volunteer and, with the guidance of his dad, placed a wreath on the grave of World War II Army Capt. Lee Lang. “I think this is special,” the Castle Rock 7-year-old said. “My uncle is in the Army and we are doing this to honor soldiers.”

Trip helps Ellis keep perspective on ice Defenseman has Mountain Vista off to quick start By Jim Benton

jbenton@ourcoloradonews.com LITTLETON - Michael Ellis has been playing hockey since he was 2-years-old. Last summer he learned what it’s like not to be able to drive to an ice rink. Ellis, a senior defenseman for the Mountain Vista hockey team, spent nearly three weeks in Africa last summer on a mission trip with Grace Chapel. “I didn’t get to play much hockey,” said Ellis. “I got to play some soccer. They worked us hard.” Ellis learned some lessons about life while on the trip to Africa. “It was way out of my league,” said Ellis. “It was a culture shock. I said, `whoa this is completely different. I learned a lot and hopefully got to help a lot, build some schools, a church, water wells and got to hang out with the people there and build relationships. “I kind of got out of the bubble, especially growing up in Highlands Ranch and living in one house and seeing nice cars everywhere and everybody having everything they need. I got there and they had nothing. Nothing here is completely different than nothing over there. That really opened by eyes.” After his return to Colorado, Ellis played for the state champion Littleton Hawks prior to the high school hockey season and he changed positions from forward to defense. “This is my first season playing defense,” he said. “I’ve always played forward. I’m a little lost out there but they said I had the size (6-foot-2, 170 pounds), and the shot so I said that I would give it a shot. “I actually really like it. I like the flow. With only six defensemen, you get out there and you know what to expect. As a forward, it’s always hard into the corners and one guy high. Now when I get the puck I can see the whole ice. I can keep my head up and look in front of me.” Ellis showed moves like a forward in scoring the first goal in Mountain Vista’s 4-2 victory over Cherry Creek last Friday at South Suburban Arena. It was the first game of the season for Mountain Vista, a district team for Douglas County. “We started late so some of these kids could finish their club seasons,” Mountain Vista coach Lev Cohen said. “It means we could start a little slow but these kids have grown up together so a couple more practices and we should be a

In two games, Ellis had two goals and three assists for five points. Brantt Heble and Connor Gerace also contributed five points in the opening two games. Tanner Gillis scored four goals for the Golden Eagles. Cherry Creek, also a district team, has resumed playing hockey after a 24-year hiatus and Bruins coach Dave Irish was impressed with the Golden Eagles. “They’re a good team,” Irish said. Cherry Creek, 0-3-1 after last week, has been in every game and is working to develop the ability to close out games. Greg Turgeon and Matt Walters each had four points in the Bruins first four games while Dalton Walker was the team’s top goal scorer with three.

Mountain Vista and Cherry Creek face off Dec. 14 at South Suburban Ice Arena. Mountain Vista won 4-2 in the first game of the season.

Sports roundup: Ochitwa makes splash Grizzly sophomore wins two events at Coaches Invite By Jim Benton

jbenton@ourcoloradonews.com ThunderRidge’s Annie Ochitwa was a double winner last Saturday in the Colorado Coaches Invitational swimming meet at the Veterans Memorial Aquatic Center in Thornton.

Boys hoops: Golden Eagles still unbeaten Mountain Vista races to 7-0 start with high-powered attack By Jim Benton

jbenton@ourcoloradonews.com Mountain Vista’s boys basketball team keeps on ringing up victories. The Golden Eagles, a fast break, transition team, were 7-0 prior to Tuesday night’s game against Columbine and a Thursday evening contest at Liberty. In the first seven games, Mountain Vista outscored opponents by 29.6 points per game. The Eagles averaged 81.9 points, 23.3 assists, 40.9 rebounds and 17.7 steals in those games. Elijah Valdez’s was the leading Golden Eagles scorer in the first seven games with a 16.7 average followed by Jake Pemberton at 15.1 and Mitch Carter at 11.4. “Overall I’m definitely pleased we are off to a good start,” Mountain Vista coach Bob Wood said. “The competition will get more difficult as we go but we are looking forward to the league season. “We’ve got a lot of seniors and a lot of experience on the team. They’ve been playing well and are getting better each game. We are a pretty deep team. We have three kids averaging in double figures and some others than are close. And we’ve had kids off the bench that have done a nice job. We are really aggressive. We full court press, trap a lot and are aggressive running to the offensive end. We steal the ball a lot. We do tend to foul so we need the depth.” GRIZZLIES ROAR - Peter Howell scored 18 points to help ThunderRidge notch a 6149 win over Fossil Ridge. Zach Rusk added 16 points and Hunter O’Neill had 13 as the Grizzlies improved their record to 7-1 and will start play to-

TOURNEY PLAY - Highlands Ranch will take a 4-2 record into tonight’s first game against Kennedy in the Cherry Creek Holiday Classic tourney. The Falcons spilt two games last week against ranked teams, beating No. 5 Aurora Central, 55-54, and losing 44-43 to No. 2 Grandview. Isaiah Parros scored 32 in the two games to lead the Falcons.

Piecemakers sew for giving season Church group delivers 54 quilts to task force

TASK FORCE’S NEEDS The Douglas/Elbert Task Force continues to seek sponsors for the holiday season to help deliver gifts to families within its reach, said Suzanne Greene, executive director. The task force serves clients in need throughout Douglas and Elbert counties and in 2010 reached more than 14,700 people. Among the more sought-after contributions the task force could use for holiday distribution are gift cards to local retail outlets, movie passes and gift cards for haircuts with local stylists, Greene said. To make a donation, visit the task force from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Saturday at 1638 Park St. in Castle Rock, or call 303-688-1114. More information about the Douglas/Elbert Task Force is available at www.detaskforce. org.

rmoore@ourcoloradonews.com It’s a labor of love when the quilters of Faith Lutheran Church gather for their annual projects. And it’s a gathering that takes place throughout the year. The church is host to the Piecemakers, a group of craftswomen who this year created more than 150 small quilts to distribute to area service organizations. Participants in the group range from lifelong quilters to some who never touch a needle. But all make a contribution that this holiday season will reach children and families in crisis throughout Douglas County. “We get together because we like to have a good time and make beautiful things for those in need,” said Jill Head of Castle Rock. “This is our biggest group.” Head was among the members of the group who on Dec. 10 delivered 54 pintsized quilts to the Douglas/Elbert Task Force. The quilts will be given to families with infants who turn to the task force for assistance, said Suzanne Greene, task force executive director. The task force serves families in crisis with food bank assistance, help with utilities and, in some cases, a selection of free

up, said Jacob, who asked the family’s last name not be used. “I just got a good job,” he said. But because their bills have piled up, there’s little money for Christmas gifts. “These are the first presents we’ve gotten for our kids,” Jacob said, watching his 3-year-old son Cavan straddle a red SpiderMan bicycle. “When I first walked in and saw all these bikes, I wanted to cry. This is tremendous.” Bikes for Tykes collaborates with several different agencies to find families in need, among them the Douglas, Jefferson and Arapahoe social-services departments, the Women’s Crisis and Family Outreach, and Denver’s Ecumenical Refugee and Immigration Services. Program founder Jeff Fleck said Saturday was an “amazing” day. He and AJ Stapleton, who founded a companion program called Project ReCycle, oversaw the holiday distribution with help from a team of volunteers. For Nelan, the bicycle is the icing on what has been a very good year. At 15, he’d given up hope of finding an adoptive family until he met the Millers, who said they felt an immediate connection with the teen. “The older you get, the harder it is to Public Notice get adopted,” Nelan said. “I was pretty surREQUEST FOR PROPOSAL prised.

per quilt, which doesn’t begin to touch real value of the gift, Greene said. “It doesn’t include the time, love and craftsmanship that goes into each one,” she said. The Piecemakers made 165 quilts in 2012 to contribute to the task force, the

Castle Rock Police Department and to the church’s international outreach through Lutheran World Relief, said Bev Williams, a Castle Rock crafter. The goal for next year is to make 200 quilts, she said. Williams is not a quilter but joined the Piecemakers two years ago and makes her contribution by cutting, pinning and tying the quilts. She is not the only non-sewer in the group of 17 Piecemakers. Two men are part of the group, bringing a contribution similar to Williams’. “I don’t even sew,” Williams said. “I can’t sew worth beans.”
