Procedure attacks cancer point-blank Man could get more time with family By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com Father of three Timothy Forehand wants more time with his young daughters. A new procedure for patients with his form of liver cancer may give him several more months. That’s a precious gift to a man who a year ago was told he likely wouldn’t survive for one more month. Forehand underwent surgery to install the device that’s expected to extend his life Jan. 8 at Sky Ridge Medical Center. He among the first patients in the United States to undergo the process, and Sky Ridge is the first of a handful of centers permitted to perform it pending approval from the Food and Drug Administration. The Dallas man was diagnosed with ocular melanoma in January 2012. The fastgrowing eye cancer already had spread to his liver, where tumors typically are lethal. “It’s a devastating diagnosis,” said Dr. Charles Nutting, who performed the procedure. “Survival is only a couple months.” The procedure performed last week concentrates chemotherapy treatment to Forehand’s liver, instead of his entire body, so high doses of cancer-fighting chemicals can saturate the organ. The idea, Nutting said, is to “try and really beat up the tumors as much as you can.” The drug-infused blood is then collected as it leaves the liver, filtered to remove as much of the chemicals as possible, and returned to the body. The method not only targets and intensifies the treatment, but minimizes side effects. “Normally, in chemotherapy, you have to give so much poison the patient can’t handle it,” said Dr. Krishna Kandarpa, chief medical officer with the company that created the filtration device, Delcath Systems. “Now, you can isolate it to the liver instead of the whole body.” The procedure is minimally invasive, requiring three small incisions into which catheters are inserted. It is not a cure. Rather, it slows the tumors’ progress, typically prolonging the

‘What we’re trying to do is help minimize the impact of the disease, trying to make them feel better for a longer period of time until we find that next magic bullet.’ Dr. Charles Nutting lives of ocular melanoma patients by about six months. Some have lived an additional three to five years. Even six months, Kandarpa said, is remarkable. “In the oncology world, people get excited if you get 15 days, a month (of life extension),” he said. Forehand, speaking from his Dallas home three days post-surgery, said he was exhausted but looking forward to recovery and a return to his normal pattern. That means hanging out with 5-, 10- and 11-year-old daughters and his wife. “We spend as much time as we can together, and that’s a lot,” he said. “I don’t really worry about prognosis anymore be-

cause it’s all irrelevant. I don’t think one day at a time. I live my life the way anybody would. I do my best to enjoy my life with my family.” Kandarpa sees its treatment in ocular melanoma as “a platform” from which researchers can work toward treating other tumors. A significant delay in a tumor’s progress, Nutting said, is a step toward the cure he believes someday will come. “What we’re trying to do is help minimize the impact of the disease, trying to make them feel better for a longer period of time until we can find that next magic bullet,” he said.

Douglas County School Board Vice President Dan Gerken resigned the week of Jan. 7, and already has stepped down from his seat. He cited growing family and work obligations. Board President John Carson said the group will begin the process of finding his replacement during the Jan. 15 board meeting. Gerken was elected to the board in 2009, and his term was set to expire in November. He did not return calls for comment, Gerken but Carson said there is no mystery surrounding his resignation from the education reform-focused board. “We depend on people being willing to take a lot of time out of their lives and work and families to do this,” he said, noting board members invest at least 20 hours a month to the unpaid post. “Dan has served selflessly in that capacity for over three years now. I greatly appreciate what he’s done for our school district.” Carson said Gerken first approached him about resigning shortly after the new year. “I tried to talk him out of (resigning), but he made his decision,” he said. Though the board has often been criticized for its fast-paced reform efforts, Carson said he doesn’t believe that was a factor in Gerken’s resignation. “If you run for office, you have to be prepared for that,” he said. “Speaking for myself, the reason I got involved in public education was to make some changes in public education that I think have been needed for a long time. I know Dan felt that way as well.” In seven years on the board, Carson said this is the fourth vacancy filled by appointment. “It’s not an infrequent occurrence,” he said. The board has 60 days to fill the empty seat. Any candidate must live in Gerken’s district — District D — which extends from Castle Pines to the southeast corner of the county. Potential school board candidates must be at least 18 years of age, a 12-month resident and registered voter of the district, and have no direct or indirect interest in district contracts. All current school board members are registered Republicans, but the office is officially nonpartisan. “We’re just looking for people that are interested in improving public education, continuing to make our school district the best, and keep making it stronger,” Carson said. Gerken, a father of two, lives in Castle Pines with his wife, Gina. He is chairman and co-founder of Gerken Taxman Interests, a commercial real estate investment and development company.

Legislators’ kickoff: Chow, everybody Opening Day of the General Assembly — no, make that Opening Week — is one long social event punctuated by family gatherings, floral deliveries, speeches, inside jokes, bad puns and, this year at least, Democratic control, iPads and something known as “Peegate.” As usual, newly elected officials, male and female, donned their best suits for their photo ops and their mass swearingin. Reporters not accustomed to covering “The Leg” squeezed into press areas. And lobbyists raced to legislators’ offices to praise, or pan, the bills that flooded in. I, of course, headed straight for the one annual event that tends to bring even vehemently opposing sides together: Opening Night’s Blue Ribbon Reception, co-hosted by the Colorado Restaurant Association and the Colorado Hotel & Lodging Association. Senators and representatives from both sides of the aisle gathered at The Grand Hyatt’s Pinnacle Room with a bird’s-eye view of downtown from the 38th floor. State lawmakers tipped back adult beverages and scarfed down special snacks served by CRA-member restaurants. The per-person price of the party was low enough to comply with state ethics rules. (Full disclosure: I write a blog for the Restaurant Association.) The only audible discussions were which restaurant served the best food. While there was no consensus, the 14 participating eateries put out an impressive example of their menus. Ted’s Montana Grill served bison shortribs, sausages and semi-sour pickles; The Charles Court at The Broadmoor upped the ante with a plate that included dynamite tuna tartare; CityGrille broke out some heat-filled green chili followed by miniature hamburger-shaped cookies; Cheyenne Mountain Resort plated a seared scallop; Mangia Bevi offered deep-fried ravioli with dipping sauces; Metro State culinary students cooked up crab cakes; Wild Eggs topped chips with egg salad and crostini with chicken salad; Outback Steakhouse served seared ahi tuna with wasabi soy dressing and blue cheese pecan

chopped salad; Centerplate’s dessert display was worth raving about; The Fort served buffalo meatballs; Bonefish Grill had tuna sashimi; The Fresh Fish Company served tuna its way, seared along with ceviche; and Baca at the Inverness Hotel & Conference Center offered seared sea scallops with forbidden rice and butternut squash risotto. During a short break at the feast fest, CRA President and CEO Pete Meersman thanked the roughly 300 attendees along with the restaurants and beverage sponsors Republic National Distributing and Southern Wine & Spirits. “Restaurants and hotels are the cornerstone of Colorado’s economy,” Meersman said. “Restaurants and hotels together will generate over $12.5 billion in sales this year. This generates over $850 million in state and local state sales taxes. Restaurants and hotels employ roughly 286,000 employees in 11,500 restaurants.” Those numbers were not lost on Gov. John Hickenlooper, a former restaurateur and founder of The Wynkoop Brewing Co., who spoke to the crowd he called “his peeps.” “There is no challenge that restaurants can’t overcome,” Hickenlooper said. “My 10-year-old son, Teddy, and I got into an argument three weeks ago about how much homework he has. He said to me, `All you do is learn facts and make decisions and get a check. I learn something new every day and if I don’t get the facts right, my next day is miserable.’” The governor went on to tell the law-

makers, “Our goal is to make good decisions. If we get together we will have a great session. “Right here in this room, we have the two greatest industries in the world — restaurants and legislators.” House Speaker Mark Ferrandino gave the Blue Ribbon Reception a big thumbsup. “I told the House members this is by far the best event of the year,” he said. “This provides on opening day (of the Legislature) a day to celebrate each other. We have the next 119 days to meet and talk but we might not always agree. Tonight, let’s celebrate the opening of the Legislature.” But Colorado Hotel & Lodging Association honcho Christine O’Donnell had the last word: “Let’s eat, drink and be merry!”

New this year

Many things have changed under the Gold Dome, what with 27 representatives and four senators who’ve never served before. That’s what term limits get us. But legislators also are getting the chance to be more tech-savvy, with iPads all around. The paper-saving move was approved last year to cut down on printing and filing costs and to increase legislative efficiency. The tablets set taxpayers back about $60,000, according to the Associated Press. Rep. Dan Pabon, D-Denver, asked if software can automatically vote no for certain sponsors. The answer: Yes, but it’s “inadvisable.” On the flip side, also new were key card readers on certain upstairs bathrooms at the Capitol that had long been accessible, through push-button codes, to lobbyists. Capitol regulars decried the change. “Let my people go,” one reporter Tweeted. The Department of Personnel and Administration acknowledged to some miscommunication with the legislature. By days’ end Friday, the crisis was over, with wider access restored.

Investment firm expands to Douglas County Redwood Trust plans 552 jobs over five years By Rhonda Moore

rmoore@ourcoloradonews.com The Redwood Trust financial institution is expanding to Douglas County, with the Gov. John Hickenlooper has announced. The company could bring 552 jobs to the area over the next five years. The California-based company chose Colorado for its new financial services operations center after Colorado offered economic incentives worth as much as $1.1 million. The offer came at the recommendation of the Denver Economic Development Commission, which reached a deal with Redwood Trust in less than two months, said Lynn Myers, vice

president of economic development, Denver South Economic Development Partnership. The partnership worked with Redwood Trust as it decided whether to expand in California or select another location with a lower cost of doing business, Myers said. “It happened very quickly,” Myers said. “The company was very well organized. We were fortunate enough that they chose us.” Redwood Trust qualified for Colorado’s job-growth incentive tax credit, which offers a rebate of up to 50 percent of the state’s FICA tax, Myers said. To qualify, a company must be bringing in jobs that pay at least 110 percent of the local average annual wage. Redwood Trust estimates its average wage will be $66,847, which is 126 percent of Douglas County’s average annual wage. If Redwood Trust deliv-

ers 552 jobs over the next five years as promised, its tax credits will be slightly more than $2,000 for every new employee, Myers said. The company selected an Inverness location for its expansion, aiming for a commuting location convenient to Interstate 25, with parking and amenities that would draw the mortgage talent Redwood Trust is looking for, said Mike McMahon, Redwood Trust spokesman. Redwood Trust buys mortgage for investment, and securitization, McMahon said. “We are excited about coming to Colorado,” he said. “We are thrilled about the reception we received, from the governor of all things, and we feel very welcome. We hope to be a good employer and meaningful participant in Colorado, which without question is one of the more beautiful states.”

with the new iPads: To “put my coffee on,” said Sen. Greg Brophy. Best debate over a speech: Sen. John Morse’s long paramedic story, about how he rushed to help following a car wreck where the victim ultimately died, had fans and foes. “Ran over to catch Sen. Morse’s speech. So far, I’m sorry I did,” the Grand Junction Sentinel’s Charles Ashby said on Twitter. Best rip on the Senate: “We love having you in our chamber, but please leave,” said Speaker Mark Ferrandino. Best photo op: Morse posed for a photo with the family of new Sen. Owen Hill. The two senators bitterly vied for a seat two years ago. Second best photo op: Five speakers in one photograph — the current speaker and former speakers Frank McNulty, Andrew Romanoff, Terrance Carroll and Ruben Valdez. Best gaffe: The governor said “Oh, Jesus” after messing up a quote in his State of the State speech.Second-best gaffe: Chief Justice Michael Bender asked representatives to “oppose — uphold — the Constitution. Third-best gaffe: Morse introduced Bender as “Chief Justice Bennett.” Bender panned, “Thank you, President (Bill) Cadman.” Best symbolism: The House opened with Denver’s Gay Men’s Chorus singing Lee Greenwood’s “God Bless the USA.” Ferrandino is the first openly gay House speaker. Best quip by a reporter: “`The skiing and the pot was great but the best part of my Colorado trip was the LAMB CHOPS,’ said no one, ever,” wrote the AP’s Kristen Wyatt, dissing Hickenlooper’s choice of what to bet on the Broncos game. Penny Parker usually covers events, restaurants, business, parties and people throughout the metro area in her “Mile High Life” column elsewhere in today’s paper. She also writes for Blacktie-Colorado. com. She can be reached at penny@blacktiellc.com or at 303-619-5209.

District releases ex-principal’s alcohol content Test indicated .078 BAC, schools’ spokeswoman says By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com Ousted Douglas County School District principal Alan McQueen’s blood alcohol content was .078 percent on Dec. 6, a reading that prompted his firing, district officials said. That reading is just under the legal limit of driving under the influence and within the state-set range for driving while impaired. Douglas County School District spokeswoman Cinamon Watson released the BAC after weeks of community speculation about the fairness of McQueen’s firing. She did so “to set the record straight. I think there have been a lot of rumors,” she said. “He blew a .078 at 10 a.m.; that was two hours after the meeting started. That was clearly a violation of district policy and quite frankly, common sense,” Watson added. “This wasn’t cough medicine. This isn’t `I was a little hung over and had a glass of

wine the night before.’ He was dismissed for a violation, a very serious violation of our policy.” Two separate tests conducted about an hour later by an independent company showed readings of .056 percent and .051 percent, Watson said. McQueen since has been hired as a middle school math teacher at the K-8 charter school Platte River Academy, two miles from Heritage Elementary where he served as principal for more than three years. As a charter school, Platte River is publicly funded and considered part of the school district, but operates and hires staff independent of DCSD. His new boss said he’s well aware of the BAC reading and other circumstances surrounding McQueen’s dismissal. “Alan’s done nothing illegal or immoral,” Platte River Academy Principal Gary Stueven said. “I’m certainly not in a position to question what the district’s done. They’ve made a decision that I suspect precludes him being hired in the district; I respect that. But that doesn’t mean I can’t do what I feel is best for my school. “We all learn our lessons from history. I’ve certainly learned mine. I’m sure Alan has learned his. I want to move forward. What I want in the end is what’s best for my

kids.” McQueen and Buffalo Ridge Elementary Principal Ally Berggren, who resigned Dec. 7, both were given alcohol breath tests during a Dec. 6 administrators’ meeting at The Wildlife Experience in Parker. Both reportedly had been drinking the night before the meeting at separate events. Watson said colleagues at the meeting alerted DCSD officials to McQueen’s condition. She did not comment on Berggren’s BAC or say why district officials asked her to take the breath test. Other than to confirm his hiring at Platte River Academy, McQueen did not comment on his dismissal or his new position. Berggren has not commented since her resignation. As principal of high-performing Heritage Elementary, McQueen was popular and beloved by many. Parents, students and community members held a rally in the wake of his firing, and another parent gathered 533 signatures on a petition calling for his reinstatement. Those signatures will not bring him back. “Clearly, people have moved on,” Watson said. The district’s substance-abuse policy states that reporting for or remaining on duty with a blood-alcohol concentration of

Schools weigh security changes All options on table as safety panel meets By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com The Douglas County School District is leaving all options on the table as it considers beefing up security in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary shootings. Those possibilities include the addition of armed marshals to all elementary schools and physically modifying buildings, to a more stringent visitor screening process and increased staff training. The district’s newly formed safety committee held its first meeting in early January. The still-expanding group will consider the pros, cons and financial viability of any change. Meanwhile, measures taken in December immediately after the Dec. 14 Connecticut tragedy — including regular, drop-in visits from uniformed sheriff’s deputies and police officers — remain in place. The prospect of armed marshals in local elementary schools already has garnered both support and criticism from community members. In a December press release, DCSD said it likely would be modeled after the airline marshal program, with plainclothes, armed personnel covering an undisclosed number of schools each day. DCSD Chief Operations Officer Bill Moffitt emphasized it is for now only an idea. “The marshal program is something we’re in discussion with law enforcement about right now,” he said. “We haven’t really gotten into enough details to share that yet. We’re still vetting the level of support right now.” DCSD also has fielded calls from community members willing to volunteer as

armed school guards. “We’re putting that into one of these areas to evaluate,” Moffitt said. “The school district and law enforcement agree we want folks that are trained to handle a certain situation. With any volunteer kind of program, we also have to look at the sustainability.” Committee members also will consider potential capital improvements, such as improved exterior doors, automatic doors or gates to isolate an intruder, and established safe areas. “Obviously, the last one and most important probably is ongoing training,” Moffitt said. “We want to continue to practice all of our regular drills and engage in some tabletop exercises going forward. We want training to be a standard thing we do when we go through orientation of new employees coming into the system, so they absolutely know what to do.” DCSD school security already includes locked doors and safety personnel at the front door of each building, security staff at all middle and high schools, uniformed school resource officers, safety and lockdown drills, and many other programs. “It is quite good, but there’s always room for improvement,” Moffitt said. DCSD is working with the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office and the Castle Rock, Lone Tree and Parker police departments on its plans, which also will include a review of mental health services. The committee will meet on an ongoing basis, Moffitt said, sharing its recommendations as they are made. “When something has been vetted and it’s ready to deploy, then we’ll be as transparent as we can about that without divulging too many details about the specific strategy,” Moffitt said.

t County’s student increase stands out Douglas among three districts in top tier By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com

Douglas County is among three districts in the metro area in line for the highest student growth in coming years, according to the Colorado Legislative Council. But district officials say the council’s findings are not news to them, and they are finding ways to accommodate the evergrowing student population. Douglas County, Denver and the Brighton 27J district all are on track for higherthan-average student growth, with Douglas and Brighton leading not only the metro reentary gion but the state. Counts taken during the 2012-13 academic year show enrollment in the Douglas County School District up 2.7

lows ding .

s

percent, outpacing the metro area rate of 1.7 percent. The recent count only verifies a yearslong pattern, DCSD officials said. “Douglas County has always experienced tremendous growth,” said Dan McMinimee, the district’s assistant superintendent of secondary education. “The big boom started about 1985. “People are going to continue to be moving in, expecting great schools, and we’re going to provide those.” Growth is strongest in Castle Rock and Parker, and slowest in Highlands Ranch. DCSD’s Long-Range Planning Committee last year determined the district has a $250 million list of unfunded capital projects. Although the state gives districts an average of nearly $6,500 per student, that only adds up to an additional $7.8 million for the district’s 1,200 new students. It costs about $16 million to build a single elementary school, McMinimee said. Douglas County voters twice rejected proposed increases in school taxes, so the district instead is focused on efficiency and

finding creative partnerships. The under-construction Aspen View Academy in Castle Rock and second American Academy campus in Parker will help absorb some of those growing elementary school populations. Parker’s Legend High School is among the schools hardest hit by growth. Since its 2008 opening, Legend has grown by about 450 students each year. Next year’s projected enrollment is 1,986, and the school’s capacity is about 2,200, Principal Corey Wise estimated. “We hired 13 teachers this year and we didn’t gain a class,” he said. “We’ve had to add three mobiles (classrooms). We have the potential to have up to five mobiles; we’re close to that max.” Because Legend has a solid reputation, it also draws an additional 70 to 100 students annually from outside its feeder area through open enrollment. Closing the doors to open enrollment is among the ways to deal with growth, Wise said, but not one he wants to use. “It’s a balancing act. You have to be pur-

poseful and intentional in what you do,” he said. “Growth in schools is exciting. We have the largest marching band. Our choirs are huge. Athletically, we’ve jumped from 3A to 4A to 5A now. We’re ahead on the technology side. (Yet) we try to feel like a small school and know every student.” Short of a bond issue, a nearly last-resort option to handling growth is to shift schools to a four-track system, in which students are divided into four different scheduling tracks. “That’s not a popular calendar with some of our families,” McMinimee said, “but that could be a way to mitigate this in the future. We’re not proposing any schools go to four-track at this point. The data says we can go through next year with what we have. But the data can change.” Growth still is a relatively good problem to have, McMinimee said. “I would take this any day as opposed to being in a declining district — having way too much space, cutting teachers and programming,” he said. “I’d much rather be on this end.”

In winning the district challenge, Cherokee Trail cafeteria manager Dawn Jeffers’ favorite method was the challenge. “I usually will dare them to try it,” she said. Principal Kasey Maas opted for the power of repetition. “We made announcements every morning of the challenge,” she said, “and our ladies that work in the cafeteria also kept reminding them.”

Those combined efforts kept Cherokee Trail consistently ahead of other schools. They edged out students at other schools “by about two-tenths of a pound per capita,” Craig said. Their day in the sun may be short-lived, however. Nutrition Services staff already are cooking up other competitions on an even grander scale. Recently, Craig said, school districts from other states called to suggest elevating the healthy-eating challenge to a multi-state level.

Library doubles digital collection Independent deal nets 10,000 titles By Rhonda Moore

rmoore@ourcoloradonews.com Douglas County Libraries Director Jamie LaRue made good on his promise to find a way around the digital divide. LaRue in August 2012 announced plans to increase the library’s digital content, a pricey proposition from the library perspective. Most major publishers either refused to sell digital content to libraries or limited its availability to the first 26 downloads, citing the longevity of the digital product when compared to traditional books, LaRue said at the time of the announcement. By the end of the year, LaRue led the way for Douglas County Libraries to ink a deal with Smashwords, an independent distributor, to buy 10,000 titles for the library’s digital collection. The deal increased the library’s digital branch to include 21,000 items in libraryowned or hosted content. Combined with the library’s OverDrive, 3M and other digital

content, the digital branch includes more than 37,600 items. “We’re eager to connect our readers to fresh streams of digital content,” LaRue said. “Smashword’s average price per title allows us to do that more readily than we could from the big publishers. This looks like the beginning of a wonderful friendship.” Smashword’s average price per title was about $4, compared to as much as $84 per e-book charged by big publishing houses, LaRue said. The model to purchase e-books directly from publishers, rather than lease them through a third-party vendor, is unique in the library business. The Douglas County model is gaining traction among publishers and being replicated by other library systems in the U.S., according to the Douglas County Libraries. Smashwords, which is based in Los Gatos, Calif., is privately held and ranks among the world’s largest distributors of independent e-books. Smashwords makes it possible for authors and publishers around the world to publish and distribute e-books to major retailers such as the Apple iBookstore, Barnes

DIGITAL CONTENT FROM THE COMFORT OF HOME Douglas County Libraries patrons can take advantage of the library’s digital branch without ever leaving their home. The library’s e-content is accessible from remote locations with any device that has Internet access, said Sharon Nemechek, collection manager. All it takes is a library card, a love of reading and the willingness to learn how to use the device. For those who are challenged by the latter, the library has experts on hand willing to help, Nemechek said. “Every device is different, every service is different,” she said. “If you need help, just give us a call.” Instructions for checking out e-content is online at www. douglascountylibraries.org. From the homepage select the blue “Downloadables” button in the upper right-hand corner. Trouble downloading? Call 303-791-7323 or visit the local Douglas County Library branch.

& Noble and Sony. The deal adds libraries to the Smashwords world of distribution. “Smashwords is an enthusiastic supporter of public libraries, and we’re proud to be working with the visionary team at

Douglas County Libraries,” said founder Mark Coker. “Public libraries are engines of book discovery, and library patrons purchase a lot of books. At a time when many e-book publishers are turning their backs on libraries, our authors and publishers are embracing libraries.” The library decided against purchasing Smashwords’s erotica content but chose to go ahead with the purchase of its romance titles, said Sharon Nemechek, collection manager. Romance and mystery rank among the library’s most popular genres, Nemechek said. Nemechek helped develop the library’s digital branch. “I wanted to be sure we had a good collection of the genres our patrons read the most,” she said. A new digital option for patrons includes the availability of popular magazines, Nemechek said. The library leases about 160 local and national magazines through Zinio. All are available to download from the library’s website at www.douglascountylibraries. org. From the homepage, select the blue “Downloadable” button in the upper right hand corner.

Ceremony follows hearing for alleged theater gunman By Rhonda Moore

rmoore@ourcoloradonews.com It was a standing-roomonly crowd of the 18th Judicial District’s power elite when candidate George Brauchler became District Attorney George Brauchler at his swearing-in ceremony. The ceremony was at 4:30 p.m. Jan. 7 at the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office, minutes from the courtroom that has thrown the district into the national spotlight. Brauchler took office on the first day of the preliminary hearing for alleged Aurora theater shooter James Holmes and was sworn in by the case’s presiding judge, 18th Judicial District Chief Judge William Sylvester. Sylvester arrived following the close of the day’s Holmes hearing to join a crowd that included attorneys, judges, prosecutors, elected officials and law enforcement agents from across the district, to recognize Brauchler’s new post overseeing cases in Colorado’s most populous judicial district. He received a standing ovation when he took the oath of office. Brauchler, who ran on a campaign promise of change in the district attorney’s office, acknowledged the high-profile cases in the district and vowed to put justice first as he takes over the prosecutorial duties. He spent part of his swearing-in day observing the Holmes preliminary hearing, he said. “I don’t want to be defined by those cases,” Brauchler said. “We should be defined by all of our cases,

Photo by Courtney Kuhlen from the petty (violations) to the major offenses. How we treat those cases defines us as an office.” The day Brauchler stepped into the post vacated by term-limited district attorney Carol Chambers, the 18th Judicial District covered a population of more than 900,000 people and had on its dockets Colorado’s only death-penalty cases. Encompassing the counties of Arapahoe, Douglas, Lincoln and Elbert, the district hears cases in urban areas such as Aurora, with about 290,000 people in the district, and in rural outposts such as the town of Hugo, population 729. Brauchler joined the district with Mark Hurlbert as his second-in-command.

Hurlbert is the former district attorney for the Fifth Judicial District, which includes Clear Creek, Eagle, Lake and Summit counties. Hurlbert faced a term limitation and joined the 18th Judicial District as Brauchler’s assistant district attorney. The lead law enforcement agent from the most populous county in the district is among those looking forward to working with Brauchler’s office. “With (Brauchler’s) level of experience and the people he’s surrounding himself with, he’s doing it right,” said Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson. “We’re excited to be a part of that criminal justice system that he’s clearly a critical part of.”

All those meetings are open to the public and there is a public comment period at every meeting.” Pabon said working groups tackle one of five major subject areas: local authority and control; consumer safety and social issues; regulatory framework; criminal law issues and tax; and funding and civil law issues. “One or two task force members heads each of the working groups,” the state representative said. “Then, each working group calls on experts in the specific fields to help

A man suspected of shooting and injuring his ex-girlfriend in the Inverness business center has been caught. Christopher Lyle Fields, 27, was immediately named by authorities as a person of interest in the Jan. 9 case and was apprehended near Raton, N.M. around 2:30 p.m. the same day. Hours earlier, investigators say the female victim was driving northbound Fields on the off-ramp from Interstate 25 to County Line Road around 8 a.m. when Fields stepped in front of her vehicle and fired one shot dis- through the windshield, striking her.

The Legislature then must take action and pass the rules and regulations that are required to be in place not later than July 1 so all the aspects of Amendment 64 can be implemented in January 2014.

He said the committee is like the hub of a wheel with the other working groups as the spokes, since the recommendations will be the basis of determining what is legal and what isn’t. “This has been a fascinating challenge,” he said. “Our first challenge was to educate ourselves so we can understand the nuances of a new industry. There is very little precedent to draw on but we did look at the regulations dealing with liquor, gambling and medical marijuana. These regulations have been tested by time and they became sort of a template as we looked at what worked and what didn’t to help us as we sought to create rules for issues that didn’t

Authorities say Fields removed the monitor at some time during the shooting incident and discarded it near the crime scene, where it was found by Douglas County Sheriff’s Office investigators. Fields was arrested roughly six hours after the shooting, and troopers with the New Mexico State Police said they found a handgun on his person. He will be charged with attempted first-degree murder, and additional charges could be added as the investigation continues. Extradition procedures have been initiated to return Fields to Colorado. The date of his first court appearance was not available. The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office established a perimeter around the crime scene in the hours after the shooting. Several Douglas County schools were placed on lockdown, including Chaparral High School in Parker and Lone Tree Elementary. The shooting occurred just east of Park Meadows mall. Some workers in an office building at 8310 S. Valley Highway, which is adjacent to the scene, were unaware of what happened. There did not appear to be any evacuations. Anyone with information about the case should call the Douglas County tip line at 303-660-7579.

Douglas County has partnered with local agencies on a series of public service announcements in hopes that residents at risk could receive a safety message in a safe haven. The county produced a series of videos aimed to call attention to issues impacting the lives of youth and adults in the community. The videos include features on the sheriff’s Text-a-Tip campaign for area youth; suicide prevention among teens and adults; burglary prevention; and distracted driving. The videos launched a safety campaign to put the brakes on high-risk behavior, said Tony Spurlock, Douglas County undersheriff. “The messages in these videos are based on trends, research and information about reducing risky behaviors and getting people help,” Spurlock said. “We want people to know about the resources that are available, empower them to seek help and encourage them to help others.” The online videos debuted in December with a series of 30-second spots produced by Douglas County television services. The series covers topics that reach teens and adults. The suicide series includes spots that speak uniquely to men, women and teens and provide direction on what to say, where to go and when to get help for a potentially suicidal individual.

The Text-a-Tip video points students to an easy way to tip authorities about safety threats, drugs, vandalism and concerns with other students. The spot on burglary prevention is hosted by Sheriff David Weaver with tips on how to secure a home. The final video showcases the real dangers of distracted driving, with tips on how to remain focused behind the wheel. The videos were produced with the participation of the Douglas County School District, which hoped the videos reach the right people. “These are important and impactful messages that we know our community needs to hear,” said Bill Moffitt, the school district’s chief operations officer. “We hope that these public service announcements will have an effect — by providing information that will not only keep our students, parents and employees safer, but will allow them to take action to help others.” Helping others is a big part of the message in the safety campaign, Spurlock said. The goal is to empower residents with information necessary to spot a dangerous situation and act on it. Those who participated in the productions hope the option to review the videos from the comfort of home helps spread the messages. “The delivery of public safety messaging to Douglas County citizens and taxpayers via video allows us to leverage the investment made by the community in their smartphones and tablets,” said Commissioner Jack Hilbert, District 1.

OPINIONS / YOURS AND OURS

Turn traction to more action in state’s economy Gov. John Hickenlooper praised Colorado for its economic rebound in his State of the State address last week. We, too, like many of the signs we see. For example, the recent announcement of Redwood Trust’s expansion into Douglas County, expected to create 500-plus jobs, was yet another sign of the south metro area’s economic growth. The early weeks of a new year make for a good time to share some good numbers, stand up and put ourselves in the optimistic category. The Colorado Municipal League, a nonprofit agency that represents interests of 267 cities and towns in the state, reported last week that our state’s cities and towns fare better than most others across the nation. The organization’s State of our Cit-

OUR VIEW

ies and Towns report noted 47 percent of Colorado municipalities closed out the year with increased revenues and further noted an inverse relationship to three years ago when 46 percent reported lower revenue. To our readers, take heart that Front Range cities fared particularly well with 83 percent reporting increased revenue. As the new year progresses, we’ll be looking for the results of increased revenues in our south metro-area cities. Further the report states local econo-

mies investing in economic development activities is paying off as well – noting 88 percent of municipalities participate in one or more economic development activities. The list includes classic car shows, art festivals, beer festivals and bike races. The USA Pro Cycling Challenge that wizzed through various parts of the state in August quickly comes to mind. The partnerships to work quickly and effectively were pronounced as strong community spirit bubbled up in day-today business, volunteer efforts, in-kind contributions and the like. We witnessed these partnerships working effectively and ethically. The state added 40,000 jobs in 2012, the report said, and the work of municipalities is part of that effort as the state continues to wrestle

out of a recession period. Big picture, last year it was big news when Colorado was ranked third best state in the Beacon Hill Institute competitiveness survey — an index that compiles economic indicators in an expansive 44 categories compiled at the institute at Boston’s Suffolk University. We noticed how the report prompted local comments that the state will never again return to the boom and bust cycles it was known for, especially in the 1980s. We, too, are optimistic. So we’ll be watching and hoping to see even more traction moving forward. Colorado has a lot of good statistics, which should encourage cities, communities and businesses to dig in with their best efforts this year.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Writer wrong about believers

H. Rudy Ramsey (“Secularism does not equal immorality,” letter to the editor) suggests believers “falsely assume that nonbelievers have” no moral standards. Not exactly. Genuine believers in God know that they’ll be held to an absolute standard of morality in the next life and do their best to live up to their understanding of God’s standards every day. On the other hand, nonbelievers (and churchgoers who don’t actually believe) have no source of absolute moral standards. Ultimately that leaves them with only the moral standards that they choose

(just as government schools teach children to do). That works fine while each chooses socially compatible morals, but it breaks down when one grabs weapons and heads to the local “gun free” zone. Ramsey apparently thinks “lower ... gun ownership” among nonbelievers indicates superior morality. However, morality is in usage rather than ownership. Without the 13 colonies and their weapons, it’s unlikely Ramsey would enjoy freedom from religion. John R. Pack Parker

QUESTION OF THE WEEK

Are you excited hockey is back?

Get off the sidelines and into the game Among the many lessons I have learned in the training and coaching business is this: The people who actually meet and exceed their goals and realize their dreams are the people who are willing to play the game. One of the other lessons I have learned is that there are people who want to make changes, want to pursue dreams and goals, want to get better at something but instead of getting into the game and playing, they find it easier to sit back and watch the game from the sidelines. Here we are in middle of the playoffs and you know it’s kind of like an armchair quarterback or Monday morning quarterback who likes to make idle observations, criticisms, or judgments about how others are playing the game. I find it funny whenever I observe people watching a game on television, screaming and yelling as if the players or coach can actually hear them and maybe even will talk back to them. Now it’s one thing to get excited and root, hoot, and holler for our favorite teams, it really is. But when we start yelling or screaming from our armchair all of the “woulda shoulda coulda” stuff, although it may be cathartic for some, it is really just as silly as all of the “woulda shoulda coulda” stuff we say to ourselves about our life plans. For a minute let’s just imagine close friends, family members, and maybe even perfect strangers watching our lives unfold on television. How many of them would be screaming at the top of their lungs, “You should have done this” or “why didn’t you do that?” Of course sitting in their armchair watching a high definition television with instant replay and 20/20 hindsight, it becomes easy to point out where our biggest opportunities and plays can come from and how we can possibly win. Now what if we had that same seat? What if we could step outside of what is going on and take a look at our own game plan, look

at how we are executing and performing in life? What would we be saying or even screaming at ourselves to do or change? As a Monday morning quarterback we should be able to easily reflect on what is working and what is not and make the necessary changes to our game plan. Here is the challenge and the opportunity. The challenge is that although many of us know what needs to be done to effect change, just like the armchair quarterback we never put ourselves in the game to make the changes. We simply sit on the sidelines waiting for someone else to come up with a gamewinning play. The opportunity is that the game of life is still on, there is time to put on the uniform and get into the action. We no longer have to rush to judgment or criticism when it comes to what we want to be, do, or have; instead we can rush into the game and make a difference. I would love to hear from you: Are you on the field or are you watching your game from the sidelines? If you email me at gotonorton@gmail. com I will share some best practices for moving from the armchair and into the game and then it will be a better than good week.

Following the end of one of the three longest work stoppages in the history of the National Hockey League, the abbreviated 2012-13 regular season is finally set to begin Jan. 19. We asked a sampling of locals

“I would say moderate. I get kind of down when they strike, because a shortened season is just not the same. By the time they actually get into a flow I don’t think the real good teams come out.” — Kurt Schempp, Highlands Ranch

“I don’t hold it against the players themselves, so I’ll still watch it, but I think it’s kind of a bummer that the lockout happened and that it had to come to that, with them asking for more money when they already make so much.” — Cam Miller, Denver

“Pretty low. I’m not much of a hockey person. I didn’t even know there was a lockout.” — Jennica Adkins, Denver

“On a scale of 1-10, it’s a 9. I’ve been a hockey fan ever since the Avs came to town. I like to go to the games but I like to watch it on TV too, so I’m pretty excited.” — Brian Hall, Highlands Ranch

Tax credit for wind is boost for Colorado All along Interstate 25 and throughout Colorado, wind turbines loom on the horizon. These towers, marvels of modern engineering, do more than power our homes: They create jobs and move us — with each revolution of their blades — closer to energy independence. Colorado is home to manufacturing plants and thousands of wind-energy workers who produce the towers, blades and nacelles for this growing industry. That is why I have been a vocal supporter of the wind Production Tax Credit, a vital incentive that has driven tens of billions of dollars in investment nationwide and helped plant the seeds of a cleaner energy future. Last year, however, Washington cast a shadow over those jobs and the promise wind energy holds for Colorado and our nation when Congress refused to quickly extend the PTC before it was set to expire at the end of 2012. And we felt the effects of this inaction close to home, when Vestas and other companies laid off hundreds of Coloradans, hurting the state’s fragile economic recovery.

Oftentimes, stories of workers in Colorado and across our country facing layoffs do not make it back to Washington. That is why I took to the Senate floor, nearly every day the Senate was in session, to remind my colleagues about what the PTC means to hardworking, middle-class families in Colorado and across the United States. Thanks to the thousands of Americans who lent me their support and stories about what wind energy means to their families, businesses and communities, we were able to come together to convince Congress to extend the PTC shortly after midnight on New Year’s Day.

I was proud to lead the effort to extend the PTC, and I was humbled to have Republican and Democratic lawmakers, in both the Senate and House, join me along the way. During my many days on the Senate floor, speaking about the importance of the PTC all across our great nation, from Colorado to the Great Plains, the Pacific Northwest and the Atlantic seaboard, I had the honor of sharing with my colleagues and the nation how wind energy touches each and every one of us. I reminded the nation how our investments in wind energy — in Colorado and across the country — create jobs, strengthen our energy security and keep us ahead of our international competitors such as China. Despite this resounding success, I am concerned that Congress will fall back into its well-worn track of delaying action on the PTC until the last minute, creating even more uncertainty when the tax credit is set to expire again at the end of this year. That is why I will continue working with

my colleagues from both sides of the aisle to give this industry the certainty it needs over the coming years to create good-paying American jobs while being fiscally responsible. That means, as the wind industry becomes more mature, responsibly phasing out the credit and passing a comprehensive energy package that creates long-term certainty for all energy sources. I strongly believe that any national energy policy we develop should reflect the success Colorado has had as an all-of-theabove energy state. Great states make things — and great countries produce their own energy. Wind power is taking us closer to the goal of a clean energy future and a strengthened manufacturing sector. I look forward to continuing to work on behalf of Coloradans everywhere to ensure that our wind energy industry remains a strong, job-creating part of our economy. U.S. Sen. Mark Udall, D-Colo., serves on the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee.

Governor calls for gun checks State of State also mentions civil unions, marijuana, economy

citizens’ mental health needs.”

Civil unions could pass

By Vic Vela

vvela@ourcoloradonews.com Gov. John Hickenlooper acknowledged that “there are no easy solutions” to issues involving guns, but said a debate on how best to deal with firearm-related violence is something “our democracy demands.” The Democratic governor, addressing the General Assembly during his annual State of the State speech Jan. 10, also proffered his opinion on one area of gun control that is certain to be one of the most passionately debated topics lawmakers will take up this legislative session. “Let me prime the pump,” Hickenlooper said. “Why not have universal background checks for all gun sales?” That suggestion certainly caught the attention of lawmakers on both sides of the aisle. “It is just completely unenforceable,” House Minority Leader Mark Waller, R- Report Colorado Springs, said of Hickenlooper’s call for all sales of guns — including those involving person-to-person transactions — be contingent on background checks. But Democrats applauded the governor’s stance. “He made some risky points,” said Rep. Tracy Kraft-Tharp, D-Arvada. “He wasn’t afraid to jump into that.” Gun control, one of many issues that legislators are expected to take up over the next five months of the session, was just one area that Hickenlooper addressed. Economic matters, civil unions and, of course, regulating the marijuana industry were also touched on during his 40-minute remarks.

Common ground sought

Taking on the issue of gun violence is a top agenda item for this Democratic-controlled General Assembly, especially on the heels of last year’s Aurora theater killings and the December massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut. But just talking about guns has always been a dicey political issue, as the governor acknowledged. “Some point to guns, others to a violent culture,” he said. “Still others believe that the line between community security and individual freedom must be re-drawn.” In spite of those varying viewpoints, the governor urged action. “Surely, Second Amendment advocates and gun control supporters can find common ground in support of this proposition: Let’s examine our laws and make the changes needed to keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people.” Hickenlooper also sought “support for a

comprehensive overhaul of our state’s mental health system,” something that he hopes can help mentally ill individuals get treatment before they commit gun crimes. Republicans said there is a bipartisan consensus on dealing with mental health issues, but that Hickenlooper’s calls for universal background checks on gun sales is problematic. Rep. Bob Gardner, R-Colorado Springs, called such an effort “a regulatory regime” that won’t do anything to curb gun violence. “It makes people feel good, but it doesn’t do anything to solve the problem,” he said. Gardner also said that it’s unrealistic that “drug dealers on street corners are going to abide by that regime.” But Democrats have the numbers this session, and are primed to move on guns. “It’s a tough issue for everybody,” said Democratic Rep. Max Tyler, D-Lakewood. “It’s a `let’s do everything’ approach. Let’s do background checks. Let’s support our

Tyler also praised the comments on civil unions by Hickenlooper, who said: “Some of us tried very hard, but it didn’t get done last year. This year, let’s do it. Let’s pass civil unions.” “The Legislature sometimes doesn’t get things done the first year,” Tyler said, referencing civil unions. “It’s been up and over and over again.” With Democrats in charge, civil unions finally are expected to pass this session. However, Waller “wants to make sure that Democrats are being completely transparent with that bill,” arguing that language in civil union legislation shouldn’t contradict the existing gay marriage ban in the state Constitution. Then there’s another big deal that elected officials will have to take up in the coming months. “Oh yeah, Amendment 64,” Hickenlooper quipped, referring to November’s voterapproved legalization of recreational marijuana use. A task force is working on finding ways to regulate the marijuana industry and will forward its findings to legislators by the end of February. Hickenlooper said it is important for the drug not to reach children, and he wants to expand DUI laws for those driving while impaired on marijuana. Waller, who is sponsoring a bill that deals with driving under the influence of marijuana, said he was pleased to hear the governor address that issue. With so many hot-button issues coming up this session, it may be easy to lose focus of what Colorado residents perhaps want lawmakers to pay the most attention to over the next five months. “We do know it’s the economy,” said Kraft-Tharp. “It’s jobs.” Hickenlooper praised Colorado’s “economic rebound” following “a historic recession.” The governor said he wants to “keep improving and building on the foundation we have in place,” and that he plans to put forth a budget that “builds the state’s financial solvency.”

Colorado’s General Assembly went into session Jan. 9 with Democrats in control of the House, Senate and the governor’s office. But by most accounts, jobs and the economy remain the No. 1 priority for Colorado’s lawmakers. New Speaker of the House Mark Ferrandino said as much a few days before the session kicked off, stating plans to roll out a series of economic bills. More will be reported on the topic as legislative proposals emerge.

Harvey eyes session with minority view State senator expects little good from Democrats

HARVEY ON THE ISSUES • Bipartisanship: “I think there are areas where we can work together but obviously there are going to be a lot of issues that the Democrats are going to feel embolden to push since they have the majority in both chambers and the governor’s office.” • Smaller committees: “When you limit size, you are really limiting that input from the voters of the state of Colorado who elected us to go down there and represent them. It’s unfortunate that (Senate President John Morse) made them smaller. It’s telling in how partisan this president is going to be, pushing through the Democratic agenda.”

By Ryan Boldrey

rboldrey@ourcoloradonews.com Republican Ted Harvey of Highlands Ranch is entering his 12th session in state politics, and his view is similar to four years ago — the last time the Democrats controlled both legislative chambers as well as the governor’s office. “Elections have consequences,” the state senator said. “It will be interesting to see what the consequence will be of having such a very far left leadership in the Senate and to see what gets to the governor’s desk and how he responds.” The Senator for District 30 said for the last two years Gov. John Hickenlooper has been able to keep from showing his true colors and “act like a moderate, probusiness Democrat,” but that’s about to change and what it will look like is not yet known. “To date he has been blessed by having a split legislature,” Harvey said. “Whatever was uncomfortable for him that the Democrats sent over was killed in the House and whatever was uncomfortable for him that came out of the House was killed in the Senate. Now, he’s going to have to control his own party.” Harvey said he fully expects the governor to sign off on civil unions, but beyond that what he will support on the far left is a bit of

Some of the more extreme issues Harvey sees coming across the governor’s desk this year include same-day voter registration, immigration reform and gun control. “There are so many other important things that are going to be going through the legislature below the radar that are going to impact the citizens of Colorado,” he said. “I really want to encourage our Douglas County residents, and specifically Highlands Ranch residents, to try to follow a little more

closely what’s going on and have their voice heard. Though we are the minority, we still have a voice.” Harvey will once again be serving on the Agricultural, Natural Resource and Energy Committee as well as the Appropriations Committee. He is stepping down from the Business Affairs and Labor Committee, though, and will instead serve on the State Affairs Committee, otherwise known as the “kill committee.” “I plan to articulate the free market perspective on

so many of the bills that are going to be coming through that the Democrats are going to be pushing to regulate businesses, regulate health care, and push toward single-payer health care,” he said. “Though I know we can’t win, we have to articulate what the conservative Republican freemarket principles are and hopefully be able to show a strong defense of the two different world views that will be in full presentation in the middle of the Capitol.” At the midpoint of his second and final term in the Colorado Senate, Harvey said he plans to leave politics and return to the private sector once his term is up. A former staffer in the Reagan White House, Harvey served six years in the Colorado House prior to being elected to the Senate in 2006. He also ran and failed to win the Republican nomination for U.S. Congress in District 6 in 2008.

State senator says guns could protect schools Harvey co-sponsors bill to change Colorado law By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com Highlands Ranch Republican state Sen. Ted Harvey wants anyone with ill intent to think twice before stepping into a school. That’s why he’s co-sponsoring a bill that could allow those with concealed weapons permits to carry them on school grounds. Senate Bill 13-009, expected to garner little support in the Democraticcontrolled state Legislature, would allow school boards to make that decision. Currently, state law prohibits those with concealed weapons permit from carrying firearms in gun-free zones, such as schools and privately owned businesses. “I’ve always argued that by putting up a gun-free zone, you’re just limiting the private, law-abiding citizens’ ability to protect themselves,” said Harvey, whose wife works at SkyView Academy in Highlands

Ranch. SkyView is defined as a gun-free area, as are Aurora’s Century 16 movie theater, Columbine High School and some other scenes of mass shootings. “I think a better solution to protect our kids and protect our staff in our schools and government buildings would be to allow citizens who have passed the background check, who have gone through the training to get a conceal-carry permit, to have the ability to carry (a weapon),” Harvey said. “Police officers can’t be everywhere all the time.” A woman with such a permit killed a gunman who had fatally shot four people at Colorado Springs’ New Life Church in late 2007, and a shopper in Oregon pointed his concealed weapon at the shooter who killed two people in December before he took his own life at a Portland, Ore., mall. Robbers hesitate before breaking into homes, Harvey believes, because they don’t know what’s waiting behind the door. “It’s the sheer fact there might be a gun that is a deterrent,” he said. “If these sick individuals thought

somebody in the school might be a trained firearms user, they might not target schools.” Harvey, co-sponsoring the bill with fellow Republicans Sen. Scott Renfroe of Greeley and Rep. Lori Saine of Dacono, said the idea deserves a thorough public

airing. “The governor … said we need to look at all current statutes to see what we can do to make Colorado a safer place,” Harvey said. “If he’s honest about that, and the Democrats are honest about that, they have to look at this issue.”

Commissioner ‘excited’ as he takes office Partridge chosen as 2013 vice-chair By Rhonda Moore

rmoore@ourcoloradonews.com Douglas County’s newest commissioner celebrated his swearing-in ceremony with an appointment as the commission vice-chair for his first year in office. Commissioner Roger Partridge, District 2, was sworn in Jan. 8 by Douglas County District Court Judge Paul King. Partridge takes over the seat vacated by former commissioner Steve Boand, who faced a term limitation after eight years as commissioner. Partridge formerly served on the county’s planning commission and ran on a platform strong on quality-of-life issues. As commissioner, he aims to concentrate on renewable water, transportation issues, economic de-

passion during her second term. “The most important thing to me (during my first term) is knowing families could support themselves,” Repella said. “That was critical. If you don’t have that core element, everything else falls apart.” Repella credited the county staff for helping to create a business-friendly environment for new businesses and took advantage of her time at the lectern to recognize Korby Lintz, the county’s chief building official.

ceremony with the commissioners’ first business meeting of 2013, where the board selected Repella as the 2013 board chair and Partridge the vice-chair. “I look forward to making great changes in Douglas County,” Partridge said. “When I’m asked `why would you get into politics?’ my answer is: `In Douglas County, why wouldn’t you? We have some of the greatest employees and greatest people in Douglas County.’”

Legislators: Marijuana task force has deadline for recommendations Legislators continues from Page 10

background checks for would-be gun buyers and another that would ban high-capacity magazine clips. Other lawmakers have chosen to focus this debate on treatment of the mentally ill rather than on guns themselves. • Fracking: The popular term for hydraulic fracturing involves pumping millions of gallons of water mixed with sand and chemicals deep underground to break up layers of rock and extract oil and natural gas. Noise, air pollution, water consumption and risk to groundwater have all become contentious issues. Changes are already under way, with the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission recently approving a rule to require groundwater testing before and after drilling, and giving preliminary approval to increased setbacks from buildings. The panel will make a final setback decision the week of Jan. 21. Limits on noise, emissions and dust and protections

against spills also are being considered. • Marijuana: Colorado’s Amendment 64 task force is on the job. And it’s quite a task. The 24 members of the panel are charged with making sense of a multitude of issues related to recreational marijuana use, which voters made legal in the November election. The task force has only until the end of February to compile their recommendations and pass on to the Legislature. A few among the many questions they will consider: Should marijuana be regulated like alcohol as opposed to the medical marijuana model? Should pot tourism be prevented by allowing only Colorado residents to purchase it? What can be done to ensure those under 21 years of age are not able to purchase and use the plant? • Civil unions: This appeared well on its way to passing during last year’s session before last-minute maneuvering prevented a vote. Having a Democratic majority in both chambers

makes it highly likely this will be taken up again and passed. As for the possibility of moving beyond civil unions to gay marriage, Ferrandino, who is openly gay, said in December, “I don’t think we’re there yet as a state.” • Education: Funding for both higher education and K-12 education is expected to draw much attention from lawmakers. House Minority Leader Mark Waller recently said higher-education funding needs to be a priority, while Ferrandino said adequately funding the K-12 system is his party’s No. 2 priority this session behind only jobs and the economy. • The death penalty: Weeks before the session began, state Rep. Claire Levy, D-Boulder, said she was exploring the possibility of introducing legislation to ban the death penalty in Colorado. In December, new Senate President John Morse said, “If it is brought up this year, I will likely vote to repeal it.” The state has not executed a prisoner since 1997.

Joey isn’t your everyday horse

Nathan Hiltman’s sister, Madison, spreads out some of the postcards her brother has received from all over the world. Photos by Courtney Kuhlen

A view of the world Parker boy going blind, but postcards bring global tour By Chris Michlewicz

Hyatt may transform Loews

cmichlewicz@ourcoloradonews.com When 9-year-old Nathan Hiltman was diagnosed with optic atrophy in July, his mom decided to try her best to help him see the world before losing his vision. The mission doesn’t involve long flights to exotic and expensive locales on the other side of the world. Stacey Hiltman’s solution was simple, yet ingenious: postcards. The plan was to put the call out to friends and relatives on her blog, as well as through Facebook. But as with all good ideas, word spread like wildfire. It was helped along considerably when Nathan’s older sister, Madison, presented the strategy in November to her Pine Grove Elementary fifth-grade class during showand-tell. The heartwarming story had some in tears, and Madison’s teacher informed colleagues and parents about the cause. A parent who works at a Denver television news station asked if she could pitch the story to producers, and the rest, as they say, is history. The piece went viral, and pretty soon the Hiltmans’ story was being picked up by new outlets as far away as Malaysia. “It’s really quite unreal because it went from honestly just my 200 friends and family on Facebook to us saying, `We don’t know what’s going on, could you send us some postcards?’” Stacey Hiltman said. The result has been astounding. As of Jan. 4, just two weeks after the story first aired, the family had received well over 1,000 postcards from all over the globe, including a stack from a Littleton woman who has been collecting postcards her entire life, but decided they could be put to better use. The vivid imagery of monuments and historic places brought the world to the Hiltman’s Parker living room. Other offers began flooding in, too. A Parker woman wants to take Nathan flying in her small plane, and a man from South Carolina offered to fund a trip overseas for the entire family. That man has an autistic son, and Nathan has a high-functioning form of the neurological disorder. Nathan’s dad, Jay, said the offers have been incredibly gener-

Joey is a featured life-sized puppet presented by the Handspring Puppet Company that brings breathing, galloping, and charging horses to thrilling life on stage in this production of “War Horse,” the Broadway hit playing the Buell Theatre through 20. Here are Joey’s stats: • Joey weighs 120 pounds and is handmade by 14 people. Its frame is mostly cane, soaked, bent and stained. • An aluminum frame along the spine, lined partly with leather for comfort, allows the horse to be ridden. • Stretched, hosiery-like Georgette fabric makes up the “skin” beneath the frame. • A puppeteer at the head controls the ears and head; one in the heart controls breathing and front legs; a third in the hind controls the tail and back legs. • A harness connects the puppet’s and puppeteer’s spines so his or her movements become the breathing of the horse. Tickets are available only by calling either 303-893-4100 or at www.dcpa.org. Beware of scalpers selling tickets on the Internet because they are more often than not fraudulent.

Nathan Hiltman, 9, looks at postcards with his mother, Stacey Hiltman, and sister, Madison, Jan. 4 in their Parker home. Since Nathan’s story aired on television, the Hiltmans have been sent postcards from all over the world.

‘That was one of my proud moments of being a dad. Because you always want the best for your kids.’ Jay Hiltman ous, but they cannot accept such extravagant gifts. However, he said the family will consider a proposal from a Montrose woman who raises Labradoodle service dogs for the visually impaired and wants to give one to the third-grader. Another woman wants to donate a magnifying device that will help Nathan better see his homework. “There are certain things we can’t refuse,” Stacey Hiltman said. The last year has been filled with ups and downs for the family. Countless doctors were unable to pinpoint the reason for Nathan’s progressive loss of sight. After the optic atrophy diagnosis, Jay Hiltman had difficulty coming to grips with the fact that his son would never ride a bike or play sports again. But there is one shining moment, one that was caught on video, that Nathan’s dad eagerly shares with people. It shows Nathan’s youth basketball team

graciously handing him the ball — at the direction of his coaches who wanted every player to make a basket before the end of the season — and heaving it cleanly through the hoop. The entire gymnasium exploded. Parents were cheering and crying at the same time. The coaches and refs were high-fiving Nathan, whose friend told him what the excitement was all about. A time-out was called and Nathan can be seen running to hug his mom. “That was one of my proud moments of being a dad. Because you always want the best for your kids,” Jay Hiltman said. Now the family is humbled once again by support from the public. Postcards from strangers continue to flood in to help a young boy discover the wonders that life has to offer. Those who wish to donate postcards to Nathan can send them to 10544 Oakmoor Circle, Parker, CO 80134.

The Loews Denver Hotel in Glendale is being sold to Hyatt, and will be transformed into a Hyatt Place as of Feb. 21, according to a super-secret source. According to my spy, she discussed the ownership change with a manager who confirmed the impending brand transition. No one from the City of Glendale nor from Hyatt could be reached as of deadline. If the flag does change, that will mean severely altering Loews, which considers itself a luxury brand, to a mid-line Hyatt product, which typically is an 11-story hotel with between 125 to 200 rooms located in an urban, suburban or airport location, according to the www.hyatt.com website description. Hyatt Place hotels are often compared to Marriott’s Courtyard brand. The sale of the Loews property was completed on Dec. 20, and the hotel is only accepting reservations through Feb. 28. Hyatt Place brands feature suite-type amenities with big-screen TVs, free wifi access and a complimentary hot breakfast daily. Hyatt Places also include meeting rooms for small corporate events. Room prices are roughly $129 a night. I will let you know more deets as they become available.

La La land

Former Nuggets star Carmelo Anthony and wife, La La, have been living separately, according to an item last week in the New York Post. “It is true they haven’t seen much of each other in the past few months,” a friend of the couple told the gossip column Page Six. “She’s been away a lot filming her show, `La La’s Full Court Life,’ in London, New York and LA. They are not separated and are still together. She and Melo have a house in LA — so she’s always there when she’s doing auditions.” However, another source contradicts that point of view. “They have been living separately for several months now,” that source says. “She’s been living in LA while Carmelo has been in New York.” According to The Post, “Sources add that La La’s also been partying with girlfriends Parker continues on Page 19

Amazing mural

“Before I Die …,” a worldwide interactive art installation by Candy Chang, has been installed on the grounds of the McNichols Civic Center Building at the corner of Colfax Avenue and Bannock Street. With blackboard space next to the words “Before I die I want to …” the mural invites visitors to pick up a piece of chalk, reflect on their lives, and share their personal aspirations in a public space. The mural was installed in Denver’s Sonny Lawson

Park by the Community Coordinating District No. 1 last summer and moved to the McNichols Building grounds in early December. The original “Before I Die …” mural was built in New Orleans, where artist Chang transformed the side of an abandoned house in her neighborhood into a giant chalkboard and stenciled it with the sentence. By the next day, the wall was entirely filled and kept growing. The wall turned a neglected space into a constructive one where neighbors had an outlet to get to know each other and remember their loved ones. It was brought to Denver through a partnership of Arts and Venues Denver, the Community Coordinating District, Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design and Denver Design Build LLC. “Before I Die …” murals have been installed in more than 20 countries and reproduced in more than 10 languages.

He’s working on a new show that will air its first season starting Jan. 16,” Mark announced on his Facebook page.

Quarrie oversaw the project, which opened as a gallery in 1978, replicating the depot’s appearance in 1902. A bay window in front holds a desk where the stationmaster held forth and a raised platform at the back of the room held baggage and freight. In addition to handsome, large watercolor and oil landscapes, Kelly’s sketchbooks and smaller drawings are grouped, and pages of the guild’s huge scrapbook are open to newspaper clippings featuring this active member. Kelly was still creating and selling intricate beaded pins in her late years, and juried a show as recently as two years ago, a bright and cheerful nonagenarian. Her contributions to Littleton’s extensive art community will be long remembered, with the cozy red depot in its place near the tracks. A framed sketch Kelly made and contributed for the “Save the Depot” campaign rests on a table filled with memorabilia, including a few remaining beaded pins.

Arts center chief returns to Littleton McNab traveled far after living in city as child By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com Cheryl McNab, Town Hall Arts Center’s new executive director, lived in Littleton as a child, but grew up in the Washington, D.C., area due to her father’s career. She brings skills and experiences that she has gathered across the country and abroad and is excited about the “community ownership everyone takes of Town Hall.” She started the new position in December and had an early emergency when a child in the “Sound of Music” cast became ill and they had to cancel a sold-out matinee performance. Fortunately, the box office keeps phone numbers for every ticket sold in the 250-seat theater, so staff was able to reach most ticketholders. By evening, they found a girl who had played the part in Evergreen, who could come in and sing, and although there was no time to teach her cues, the show went on. The “Sound of Music” production broke Town Hall records for attendance, which was a really nice way for her to begin her new job.

Cheryl McNab started as the new Town Hall Arts Center executive director in December. Photo by Courtney Kuhlen McNab spent five years as executive director at Grand Junction’s Western Colorado Center for the Arts/The Art Center, which was a part of its community as Town Hall is, and more recently, a short period with the Rocky Mountain Arts Association in Denver.

When the Town Hall position became open, she knew she had to apply for it, she said. Before the Grand Junction position, she directed The National Audubon Society’s first environmental center in Phoenix, where she was involved in writing a bond

proposal and a business plan for that center. She said her husband is a developer and moves were related to projects he was working with. Her undergraduate degree was in sociology from George Mason University in Virginia (1974). A master’s degree from the University of Maryland/Baltimore was earned in 1996. She worked in a congressional office in Washington, taught in Zimbabwe and in England, and was a development officer for the University of Arizona. Since entering the arts field, she has participated in related committees, boards and seminars and with presentations and panels focused on art and economic development — a topic that will be important to her new Littleton position. She is excited about the Town Hall board of directors, with Linda Scott as new president, and looks forward to working with them to keep successful programs going. She hopes to expand children’s programming for Town Hall and perhaps to bring some new audiences to the Thursday Preview Nights before a production opens. In Grand Junction, people with disabilities were invited to dress rehearsals and she looks to make that connection and others in Littleton. She is also looking for other possible community connections and would welcome contacts.

In addition to tension with LBJ, RFK as attorney general had ongoing conflict with FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover and his relentless search for Communists. He describes a

disapproving Hoover’s arrival in his office one day when it was filled with his children and dogs. On a more scholarly track, he turned to the Greek playwright Aeschylus on sleepless nights and at other times, quoting:

“The first casualty of war is the truth.” Driven to excel, he ran a successful campaign for the Senate, coached by brother Teddy when he was elected. He continued opposition to the war in Vietnam, horrified by the bombing of entire villages, and was constantly on the move. He campaigned for better conditions for the disadvantaged of all races. Accounts of travel to Europe, South Africa, South America, talk about the riots in the U.S. and James Meredith’s attempt to attend the University of Mississippi, interaction with Martin Luther King and many more references to the period lead one to walk out with a head filled with images and memories. The selection of segments from speeches and running commentary on events of the day lead us logically to his decision to run for president, a loss in Oregon and win in California — and assassination there in June 1968 — at age 42.

He is a registered therapy dog, and when they are in New York, her husband takes him to visit schools, she said.

“War Horse,” winner of five Tony awards, is especially noted for its staging, with life-sized puppet horses, operated by three puppeteers each. Created by Handspring Puppet Company, they breathe and gallop. “It seems almost derogatory to call them puppets,” Reed said. “They seem so alive.” The couple has been on tour since mid-May and are contracted until the end of June. “We were just in Chicago for three weeks,” Reed said. (Happily, the weather

was pleasant.) The next stop is Costa Mesa, Calif., followed by Tempe, Ariz., and Seattle — a long drive. Each stop is at least a week. Later in the spring, they will have to make a decision about committing to another year, if a contract is offered. ”I love the show, but we do have a home in New York,” she said. She doubts that the show will return to Denver next year. “There are logistical issues — we travel with nine semis …” In addition to the national touring company, companies are presently playing in London’s West End and in Toronto, and the Broadway production closed Jan. 13. “War Horse” is based on a young adult novel by Michael Morpurgo and was adapted by Nick Stafford. It tells of young Albert and his beloved horse, Joey,

Of ice and men People — and pets — can face danger on frozen ponds

WHAT TO DO TO AVOID ACCIDENTS • Avoid frozen lakes, ponds and creeks. • Keep pets on a leash. If a person or pet falls though the ice: • Call 911 as soon as possible. • Do not attempt to rescue them yourself. • Keep others off the ice. • If the victim is human, make contact and keep them talking • If a rope or cable is available, try throwing it to them, but do not go out on the ice to do so. • Wait for emergency responders. “While waiting for emergency responders, try to keep others off of the ice,” he said.   “Make verbal contact with the victim, if human, and keep talking to them until help arrives.  If you have quick access to a rope or cable that you can throw to them, try that, but do not abandon the victim.” of those the person or the animal is out of the water by the time we arrive. We did save two dogs, in two separate incidents, last month

By Deborah Grigsby

dgrigsby@ourcoloradonews.com Whether you have two legs or four, ice is never safe. That’s what Capt. Dan Goldan of South Metro Fire Rescue’s dive rescue team wants residents to know about walking on frozen ponds and lakes. Since the fall of 2009, South Metro has responded to 14 ice rescues, according to public information officer Andy Lyon. Six of those were animal rescues. “People assume the ice is safe,” said Goldan. “While thicker ice will hold more weight, there is no way to tell if it’s truly safe or not, until you have fallen through, and then it is too late.” Goldan explained that while several factors affect how ice is formed, and how much weight it can support, the best way to prevent an accident is for people and pets to simply stay away. Dogs, in particular, like to chase ducks and geese across a frozen pond, often put-

ting them at risk. Frantic pet owners, in turn, can put their own lives in danger by attempting to rescue an animal that has fallen through. While it may be tough to resist helping a struggling person or pet, Goldan said the first thing to do is call 911 Don’t try to rescue people or animals

Footprints across a frozen pond near the intersection of DTC Boulevard and Belleview Avenue appear to belong to a lucky person and pet. Some aren’t so lucky and have to be rescued from icy waters. Photo by Deborah Grigsby alone. “If a person or a 40-pound dog has already fallen through the ice, you are guaranteed to do the same, turning you into another victim,” explained Goldan. “The fire department responds with specialized ice rescue suits and is trained to rescue both people and animals.” Lyon said ice water rescues are extremely

dangerous. “Icy water can sap a person’s heat, and their ability to move their arms and legs, in just a matter of minutes,” he said. “We might also point out that, in a fair number of cases, animals are able to get out of the water by themselves, but we still want people to call 911 whenever they see an animal go through the ice.”

Accidents on rise at Broadway/C-470 Authorities beef up patrols in response to work-zone crashes

Construction update The projected timeline for the Broadway/C-470 construction project is October 2012 to October 2013, and according to Project Manager Dennis Lobberding, workers are on track to finish the project ahead of schedule. The project, which entails the complete rebuild of Broadway between Dad Clark Drive and County Line Road, includes upgrading the storm drainage system, widening the road in both directions to lengthen left-turn lanes for the C-470 on-ramps, and the addition of bike lanes. No new lanes for motorists are being added. Workers are wrapping up the storm drainage upgrade and widening on the east side of Broadway. They will begin the same work on the west side of the road late next month or in early March. Once that is complete in April or May, workers will spend the next 100 days reconstructing the main body of Broadway in two phases. One phase will force all traffic in both directions to the northbound side of the road and the other will force all traffic to the southbound side. During that time the on-ramps will be closed at Broadway and C-470. The off-ramps will remain open at all times. For more information, tune to 1620 AM for weekly updates or visit www.douglas.co.us and search for “Highlands Ranch road improvements.”

It wasn’t long ago that two construction workers were killed when a driver lost control of his car near Broadway and C-470 in Highlands Ranch. But that doesn’t mean other drivers are proceeding with caution. Seven accidents occurred in the work zone in the two-week period surrounding the new year, including one Jan. 7 nasty enough to prompt Douglas County Traffic a Engineer Dennis Lobberding to discuss the situation with both the Littleton Police Department and the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office. “We’ve had very good cooperation with both departments,” said Lobberding, who and legs,is overseeing the yearlong project. “They “Wehad been out there a couple times a week, mberbut after talking to them Monday they are f theupping that to a couple times a day just to peo-try to have more of a presence.” imal Lobberding said all of the recent wrecks have been rear-end accidents caused by people who were going too fast and not paying attention. “The traffic stops in front of them and they don’t stop,” he said. “It seems like it’s the worst in the morning with people getting to work.” Although the construction zone ex-

There have been multiple traffic accidents in the construction zone surrounding the interchange of Broadway and C-470 in recent weeks, prompting an increase in patrols by both the Douglas County Sheriff ’s Office and Littleton Police Department. Photo by Ryan Boldrey ists between Dad Clark Drive on the south and County Line Road on the north, the 25 mph work zone expands from Plaza Drive in Highlands Ranch to Southpark Drive in Littleton. A handful of signs on both ends inform drivers that fines double in the construction zones — increasing a 10-over speeding ticket from $135 to $270 — but that hasn’t deterred many commuters. Jason Clukies, who drives through the construction zone five to six times a week on the way to work at Outback Steakhouse

in Highlands Ranch, said traffic is either really backed up or people are driving the normal 45 mph speed limit, ignoring the posted work zone limits. “It’s madness over there,” Clukies said, adding that people are also “flying down the off-ramps (and onto Broadway) much faster than they should be going.” The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office issued 58 tickets on Broadway between Dec. 1 and Jan. 8, most of which were handed out in the construction zone, spokesman Sgt.

Red-hot Rutz rolls through tournament ThunderRidge senior dominant at Legend Invite By Jim Benton

jbenton@ourcoloradonews.com PARKER - Kyndall Rutz propped open a door and stepped outside of the Legend gymnasium into the bitter cold during Saturday’s Legend Invitational Dual Meet Wrestling Tournament. That was the only thing that cooled off the 113-pound wrestler from ThunderRidge. Rutz won all of his five matches, four by technical falls and one by a pin. “Being in the gym all day with everybody, I decided to get some fresh air,” said Rutz. “I was expecting to be out there for a minute or two but I had to come back in because it was pretty cold.” Rutz, ranked No. 2 in his weight division by On The Mat, has lost only once this season. “He’s having a good year,” said ThunderRidge coach Casey Paul. “His one loss was to a kid (Cherry Creek’s Zach Finesilver) that made the state finals last year. That was when he was at 120 pounds. He’s gone down to 113.” Rutz has placed fifth in the

Class 5A state tournament the past two years. “This year has been different,” explained Rutz. “It’s my senior year and I have to get as much as I can in these last two months. I thought 120s was an alright weight class for me but I felt I could perform better at 113. “I’d have to say technique and speed are my best assets. You can outmuscle a lot of people but not a lot of people have the speed and technique to beat kids that are stronger. I can wrestle a kid and he can be stronger but if I have the mentality to be stronger in my position and you are quicker, then by all rights I should be able to win that match.” Rutz is putting in extra work this season. “In practice I’ll do more sprints than everybody else and once practice is over, I’ll stay out for a couple more minutes and drill with coaches. “If I stay out after practice and work on some stuff, I feel like I have kind of mastered and tweaked a move and made it better so I can take it out in the competition world and be able to use it. I’m just trying to take kids down and get ready for that tournament in February down at the Pepsi Center.”

Roundup: Sports luncheon set for Friday By Jim Benton

jbenton@ourcoloradonews.com The National Girls and Women in Sports luncheon will be held Friday at 11 a.m. at Chaparral High School. There will be 135 girls from Douglas County middle schools and high schools who will be honored at the luncheon. The event is hosted by the Douglas County Educational Foundation and Douglas County School District to recognize young women who exhibit outstanding athletic accomplishments and character in the Douglas County schools.

ROUGH SCHEDULE - Mountain Vista’s hockey teams played four games in four nights, winning twice and losing two contests. The Golden Eagles (6-2-0 in the Peak Conference and 9-3-0 overall) had an abbreviated roster of 12 players for three of the games because several players were missing because they were playing on club teams in Canada. “We were tired halfway through the third game and it caught up with us,” said Mountain Vista coach Lev Cohen. Five different players scored in a 5-1 conquest of Pine Creek while Tanner Gillis and Devin Jarvis each had two goals in the 5-0

Balanced Falcons romp past Denver East Highlands Ranch has little trouble with Angels in top-10 showdown By Jim Benton

jbenton@ourcoloradonews.com HIGHLANDS RANCH - There are no stars on the Highlands Ranch girls basketball team, just a bunch of role players. That in no way means the Falcons don’t have good players, it’s just that from game to game there seems to be different girls stepping forward to lead the team. “Everyone does their role,” explained Highlands Ranch coach Caryn Jarocki. “CC (Ciera Morgan) plays her role at the point, Shelby (Hickey) and Abo (Abriana Lujan) on the wing and Kelsey (Wainright) and Maddie (Madison Montgomery) inside. “We try to get everybody to rebound. We try to involve everyone in the offense and

we try to allow the open person to shoot the ball.” Emily Childress and Symone Starks provide most of the spark off the bench. In a Jan. 8 game against then-No. 8 Denver East, Jarocki shuffled eight players in and out of the lineup and the Falcons pulled away in the second half for a 53-34 win that pushed fifth-ranked Highlands Ranch’s record to 8-3 prior to last Tuesday’s game against Doherty. Montgomery, a 6-foot senior who has committed to Long Beach State, scored 11 points and blocked five shots. Hickey, a 5-10 senior, sparked a third quarter surge and finished with 10 points. Starks, a quick 5-4 freshman, added nine points. “We’re very unselfish,” said Montgomery. “We always talk about being a team. Our offense is set up so everyone gets a shot. If somebody is hot, we’re going to find her because it’s all about winning as a team.” Montgomery has provided the Falcons

with a shot-blocking threat inside but she often flirts with foul trouble. “I work in practice, just staying on the floor and working real hard on trying to block it once they release the ball and getting it so I can’t foul them,” said Montgomery. “But I’m always looking for the block because it’s so exciting. You can’t go for every block because it’s just not smart. You definitely have to control it.” Montgomery, the team’s leading scorer with an 11.5 points per game average, couldn’t play last season because she transferred from Regis Jesuit. However, she was allowed to play on the junior varsity team. “There were times when I was frustrated because I was so aggressive and wanted to play with the varsity,” she said. “In the long run, it was all worth it because of the people I’m with and the community this school has is great. “I learn so much here. Coach J is such a great coach. Last year was a long year but it

was all worth it.” Jarocki, who has guided the Falcons to seven state championships in the past 12 seasons, learned something early this season when Morgan missed five games with a leg injury. “Having her back helps because now everybody is shifted back into their comfortable position,” said Jarocki. “With her out people were playing out of position and it wasn’t much fun.” Morgan, a 5-9 junior, is averaging 7.6 points while quarterbacking the balanced Highlands Ranch offense that has every regular contributing. Wainright chips in a scoring average of 10.9, Lujan 9.8, Starks 6.8 and Hickey 6.7. Jarocki, however, knows the Falcons aren’t ready for prime time just yet. And, she knows what she is talking about. “We still have a ways to go,” said Jarocki who has coached seven Falcons’ seven state championship teams starting in 2000. “I’m not that confident right now.

Senior has record-setting night in big win

Valor Christian improves to 12-2

By Jim Benton

jbenton@ourcoloradonews.com Katrina Bacovcin scored 33 points to set a school record as No. 7 Chaparral posted an 83-36 win over Montbello. The 6-foot senior broke the previous record of 32 points established by Sam Martin. Bacovcin, who has committed to play next season at Idaho State, is averaging 13.1 points a game this season. “Katrina is one of our best players,” said Chaparral coach Tony Speights. “She’s having a nice year. She has done a great amount of work on her game since she has been here. “Against Montbello she just kind of got on a roll and started knocking down shots. She has the ability to make shots from all over the court as well as attacking the basket. As her coach, I could not be more happy for her.” WARRIORS WIN - Unbeaten and top-ranked Arapahoe began Centennial League play with a 37-35 win over Cherry Creek and a 50-33 conquest of Smoky Hill. Ten of 11 players scored against Creek and the Warriors (11-0) displayed more balanced scoring against Smoky Hill with Kera Riley leading the way with 11 points. TOP TEN BATTLE Rock Canyon, ranked sixth in last week’s Class 5A poll, collected a 58-47 victory over No. 5 Palmer. Lexy Thorderson had 17 points while Kendall Koslosky added 16 and Erin McClarie 11 for the Jaguars

Bradbury scored 14 points and grabbed 12 rebounds to lead Valor Christian to a 48-23 win over Pueblo Central last week. Photo by Andy Carpenean (8-2). FALCONS WIN - In another battle of teams ranked in last week’s top 10, No. 4 Highlands Ranch took charge in the second half to earn a 53-34 win over No. 8 Denver East. Madison Montgomery led the way for the Falcons with 11 points. BIG VICTORY - Mountain Vista shot only 23 percent from the field but still won by 34 points as the Golden Eagles smashed Montbello, 57-23. Chelsea Pearson scored 15 points for the winners. STREAK SNAPPED Castle View’s seven-game winning streak was snapped as unbeaten Regis notched a 59-33 Continental League win over the Sabercats. Taylor Nynas had 13 points for Castle View in the setback. SECOND HALF SURGE - Ponderosa outscored Thornton 42-11 in the second half enroute to a 70-37 victory. Kari Keogh had a gamehigh 24 points for the Lady Mustangs. LEGEND LOSS - Sophomore Joey Sale had 11 points but it wasn’t enough as Pine Creek pinned a 3831 loss on Legend. THIRD STRAIGHT -

Littleton shutout Denver North in the second period and cruised to its third straight victory with a 69-20 win over the Vikings. Laura Puchino scored 14 points and her sister Stephanie added 13 for the Lions. Heritage failed to end its losing skid as the Eagles lost their fourth game in a row with a 60-35 setback to Palmer. VALOR ON TOP - Kendall Bradbury, a 5-11 sophomore, scored 14 points and grabbed 12 rebounds to lead Valor Christian to a 4823 win over Pueblo Central. LUTHERAN ROLLS Lutheran, the state’s second ranked Class 2A team, overwhelmed St. Mary’s Academy 58-18 and throttled Evangelical Christian 5740 as Kassidy Kyle led the team with 12 points in each game. NEW RANKINGS - Regis jumped over Arapahoe into the top spot in the Class 5A girls basketball poll released Monday. Both Regis and No. 2 Arapahoe are unbeaten. Highlands Ranch was ranked third, Rock Canyon fifth and Chaparral sixth giving the Continental League five teams among the top six teams in the rankings.

Junior Chase Foster led Valor Christian, the state’s top-ranked Class 4A boys team, to a pair of victories last week. Foster, a 6-foot-5 junior, had 24 points and 12 rebounds in a 74-64 victory over Aurora Central and tossed in 23 points with 11 rebounds in the Eagles’ 65-58 triumph over Gateway. Valor Christian entered action this week with a 12-2 record and was ranked No. 1 in the latest poll released Monday. DENVER EAST ROMPS - Mitch Parsons, the highly-sought 6-foot-5 tight end, had his best all-round game of the basketball season in Chaparral’s 78-63 loss to topranked Denver East. Parsons had six points, seven assists, one blocked shot and five rebounds in the loss that left the Wolverines with a 6-7 record. “He’s really getting his basketball legs back. He’s moving a lot better,” said Chaparral coach Rob Johnson. “He just does little things really well. Coming off football, it’s a different speed for him. “He’s jumping as high as I’ve ever seen him jump and he weighs 240 pounds. He’s an amazing athlete.” Sophomore Chris Moody had 21 points and nine rebounds to pace the Wolverines which outrebounded the Angels 26-18. “The thing you worry about with East is their ability to rebound and being physical around the rim,” said Johnson. “I thought we did as well as we’ve ever done in our matchup there. We were physical on the rim right with them. We played hard. Their speed kind of got us.” A night earlier East beat ThunderRidge (7-4) 73-53 in a rematch of last season’s third round state playoff game. ThunderRidge won the 2012 post-season game, 52-49, but couldn’t stop the Angels this season despite Peter Howell’s 12 points and 11 rebounds. TITANS, FALCONS WIN - Jonathan Cosmann scored 17 points to lead the Legend Titans (8-2) to a 56-42 victory over Palmer. Highlands Ranch (8-3) made only 8-of21 free throws but still collected a 60-58 win over Thomas Jefferson, the state’s fifth ranked Class 4A team. Evan Motlong had a game-high 19 points

for the Falcons. NARROW LOSS -- Douglas County missed two attempts to tie the game in the closing seconds and dropped a 67-63 decision to Doherty. Calvin Cooke and Ryley Stewart each had 17 points for the Huskies (4-7). ARAPAHOE SPLITS - Arapahoe split its first two Centennial League games, losing 59-57 at Cherry Creek but rebounding with a 95-48 win over Smoky Hill in which six players scored in double figures. PEMBERTON LEADS GOLDEN EAGLES - Jake Pemberton scored 20 points in visiting Mountain Vista’s 70-56 win over Montbello as the second-ranked Golden Eagles improved their record to 11-0. WINNING STREAK -- Zach Mattice’s scored 15 points and hit some clutch free throws to help Castle View defeat Thornton, 49-39, to seal the Sabercats’ fourth consecutive win. Matt Dowsey had a team-high 18 points for Castle View (5-6). ROCKY QUARTER -- Rock Canyon (5-6) was outscored 21-4 in the third quarter in a 71-48 loss to Montbello. ANOTHER WIN - Host Ponderosa (7-4) outlasted Denver North, 57-46, as the Mustangs won for the fifth time in the past six games. STREAKING - Eli Ziegler scored 16 points as Heritage (5-6) won its fourth consecutive game with a 51-47 triumph over Aurora Hinkley. Littleton saw a four point lead evaporate in the fourth quarter as the Lions lost its third game in a row with a 50-43 setback to Gateway. EASY WINS -- Lutheran’s margin of victory was 58 points in two wins last week as the Lions, ranked No. 3 in Class 2A, downed Vista Peak Prep 50-32 and whipped Evangelical Christian, 70-30. LEAGUE OPENERS - Continental League play begins Friday with Chaparral going to Highlands Ranch in one of the featured games. Heritage visits Mountain Vista, ThunderRidge travels to Douglas County, Littleton plays at Legend, Regis Jesuit hosts Castle View and Rock Canyon travels to Ponderosa in the other league openers. RANKINGS - Mountain Vista remained second in the Class 5A boys basketball poll that was released Monday and ThunderRidge was fourth. Arapahoe is No. 7. Valor Christian remains the top-ranked Class 4A team while Denver Lutheran is third in the Class 2A poll.

2013 outlook: Year of the Snake Worley takes top spot on chamber board The Eastern world is celebrating the Year of the Snake. While that sounds a bit uncertain to Americans who may picture a slithering snake as a negative, the Chinese believe the snake is a sign of wisdom and intelligence. I like their version of the 2013 outlook better. Americans tend to be skeptical and after the fiasco of the fiscal cliff, most of us are ready to have a reason to be optimistic. It is hard to discuss where we are headed without summarizing where we have been first when planning for the New Year. Last year had very distinct patterns that affected investors and consumers. Early in the year all eyes were on Europe and their debt restructuring. Next came the political uncertainty of the election and the continued political competition over the tax law changes. Finally the economic slowdown in China put more pressure on our already slow economic growth. These were the major issues that shaped 2012. Some of those concerns are going to carry over to the New Year, however in a different phase. While the tax laws have been updated, many of the provisions are temporary for one year only and the problem of the debt ceiling and the spending cuts remain. Europe has figured a way to refinance their debt but the implementation and the painful outcome of true austerity lingers. China as the world’s largest population of consumers will continue to drive markets around the world. Their growth will be very important to the world. Last year ended very positive for the financial markets, but it was not without worry or volatility. The stage is set for 2013 with continued slow growth and less concern about recession. The positive outlook is a result of several improved economic data points. Households have been paying down debt, which should increase disposable income. The banking sector appears to have recovered from their crisis and is gradually increasing lending. The U.S. housing and labor markets are gradually
