More gun bills reach governor
An emergency room physician and Castle Pines mother joined the Douglas County School Board March 14. Dr. Carrie Mendoza was sworn in at the end of the meeting, chosen from among six finalists to fill the seat vacated in January by Dan Gerken. Mendoza, 46, and her husband Myles have three children. Myles Mendoza is executive director of Summit 54, described as a nonpartisan group that invests in programs to improve K-12 education. The new board member, who said she was leaving immediately after the meeting for her hospital job, was interviewed earlier in the evening along with the other five finalists. “I would like to carry on the great work the board has done,” she said. “I think I’d be
the best qualified in bringing some diversity to the board with my background and experience as a physician.” Board president John Carson asked her how she responded to the recent Colorado Court of Appeals decision in favor of the school district’s voucher program. “It was a hopeful moment that things obviously were going to progress and not take another back step,” she said. Mendoza also said she believes she could help the board counter the criticism “that comes with such a bold move.” “How can we be more effective? How can we promote better what we’re doing, how it’s effective?” she said. Board member Justin Williams proposed naming Mendoza to the board. Williams said Mendoza stood out from the others, though all six finalists met his criteria, which included compatibility with the current board, vision and electability. The seat Mendoza is filling expires in November, so she must either step down or run for election. Three other seats also are up for election in the fall. Board continues on Page 11

Universal background checks, magazine limits await signature By Vic Vela
firstname.lastname@example.org Two more gun bills await Gov. John Hickenlooper’s signature, following another week of polarized debate on firearm-related legislation in the General Assembly. A bill that would put in place universal background checks on gun sales and transfers has now cleared the General Assembly, after getting one last round of debate in both the House and Senate on March 15. House Bill 1229 had previously passed both chambers, but lawmakers had to take up the bill again to deal with some minor amendments. Earlier in the week, on March 13, the House Report also passed House Bill 1224, which limits high-capacity ammunition magazines to 15 rounds. That bill had already passed the House last month, but lawmakers in the lower chamber had to vote on the legislation again in order to deal with amendments from the Senate. As was the case with earlier votes on these bills, debate was lengthy and at times emotional. Democrats continued to make the argument that background checks and magazine limits must be put in place to prevent more criminals from terrorizing a state that is no stranger to mass shootings. And Republicans argued at length that the bills would do nothing to further community safety and would only make it more difficult for law-abiding citizens to exercise their Second Amendment rights. The same Democratic lawmakers who voted against the bills did so again last week. Reps. Ed Vigil of Fort Garland, Steve

pot recommendations are a handful Task force creates much work for lawmakers By Vic Vela
email@example.com It’s 166 pages long and it contains 58 regulation recommendations — some will be more complex and controversial to deal with than others. So it’s no wonder that state lawmakers are going to have to work overtime to get through a report from the Amendment 64 Task Force in time to meet a deadline for putting in place rules dealing with November’s voter-approved marijuana legalization in Colorado. A newly created legislative committee began its work on implementing the task force regulations on March 15. The Joint Se-
lect Committee, which is made up of Democrats and Republicans from both houses of the General Assembly, heard testimony on how best to go about crafting pot rules that must be ready for enforcement on July 1. If lawmakers can’t create legislation this session that deals with a myriad of issues — such as putting in place protections for children, figuring out how to deal with tourists, and how the new marijuana industry is taxed — then the state’s Department of Revenue will put rules in place without input from lawmakers. “We’d prefer not to implement rules without the guidance of the General Assembly,” said Department of Revenue head Barbara Brohl, who also is the co-chair of the task force that was put in place by Gov. John Hickenlooper. Because of that, the committee’s House
chairman, Rep. Dan Pabon, D-Denver, said members should expect to meet several times through the remainder of the session in order to complete their work. “We are going to have, I’m sure, a lot of discussion and debate about what should and shouldn’t be included in this legislation ....” Pabon said. As if their job isn’t difficult enough, committee members also must take into consideration the federal government’s role in all of this. The state still doesn’t know whether the U.S. Department of Justice will intervene in Colorado’s new marijuana industry, by way of federal drug enforcement or even a lawsuit. “This is a concern for everyone in government and everyone in the state,” Brohl said.

Real ‘R-word’ should be ‘respect’ Brenden VanBruwaene, 16, looks intently, seriously, at the camera as he starts the public service announcement. His words are simple and direct: “When I hear people saying retarded, it makes me feel upset and … sad a lot. That’s what I feel.” Brenden would know. He is a sophomore, a friend to all, who walks through school halls listening to music with his headphones and iPod and flashing happy smiles. He has big dreams — to be a famous actor or singer someday. He also has Down syndrome, a fact of life Brenden will passionately tell you has shown him how important it is to be kind and respectful to everyone. He doesn’t hear the word “retard” much, but he was called it once last year. A friend stood up for him. Still, he hurt. “This is,” he says, “not right.” Brenden knows — which is why he and his school have joined a nationwide campaign to eradicate what they call the R-word as it is used today. Words are powerful. When strung together in careful and thoughtful precision, like a meticulously embroidered tapestry, they are beautiful, magical. They touch, inspire, break down barriers and connect us. But tossed about ignorantly, without attention or respect for meaning, and words wound. They tear us down and apart. “With any word, it’s not what you say,” Karen Riley says, “it’s what you mean when you say it.” Riley is an associate professor and chair of the educational research and policy department at the University of Denver’s Morgridge College of Education. She also has spent many years working with children who have neurodevelopmental
disorders, such as Down syndrome. In its clinical form, she notes, the word retardation is benign. It connotes anything that doesn’t move at the rate it should be moving — it’s slower or retarded. But that’s not how the word, in any of its derivative forms, is generally used today. “We know what it means,” one high school sophomore said, “but we just have a different definition for it.” The definition: An expression of exasperation. Stupid. Riley tells her students this true story: A mother pulling into a school accidentally bumped into the car parked in front. The driver of the parked car said to the mother, “What are you, a retard?” The mother then proceeded to help her child, with Down syndrome, from her car. The man apologized profusely. “Would it have been OK if she didn’t have a child with Down syndrome?” Riley asks. “As long as nobody is there to hear it, is it OK to use that word? If you know it’s hurtful, then why do we say it at all?” Retard, of course, isn’t the only word in this category. There’s the N-word, the derogatory term for African-Americans, and gay, which when used to mean dumb or ridiculous also implies homosexuals are lesser than others. Kim Gorgens, an
Giving Tree donors brave snow Volunteers collect 10 tons of food despite blizzard By Jane reuter
firstname.lastname@example.org A blizzard couldn’t keep volunteers from participating in the 2013 Giving Tree food drive, though it did put a dent in donations. The annual collection for the Douglas/Elbert Task Force, with collection points originally set at three Douglas County Safeways, dropped to two with the heavy snow of March 9. While donors were fewer, organizer and Lone Tree council member Susan Squyer said those who gave did so with gusto. “People were very generous with their donations this year in part, it seemed, due to the weather and thinking of others facing a lack of a full cupboard at home,” Squyer said. “Overall, we feel very good about our work.” The total value of collected goods
came to about $4,258, or nearly 10 tons of food. The Giving Tree was founded after Squyer learned food banks benefit from the generous spirit of the holiday season, but suffer a dearth of contributions in the spring. “This is such an important drive for the Douglas/Elbert food bank, not only in the amount of money, cards and pounds of food raised, but in awareness of the need and willingness of volunteers to give of themselves,” task force director Suzanne Greene said. “We’re very grateful to all of you.” In 2012, the Douglas/Elbert Task Force helped 16,000 people in financial crisis, distributing almost $700,000 worth of food, hygiene and household supplies and giving utility bill assistance to 676 households and help with housing payments to 236 households, among other services. The Castle Rock-based task force formed in 1984 when members of several Castle Rock churches joined forces to help people in need.
assistant professor of psychology at DU and past chair of the American Psychological Association’s Committee on Disability Issues, would argue that even words like crazy and cripple fall into this classification. “These words become episodes that are so denigrating and so harmful to groups of people,” she says. “Recognizing how you play a part in that problem is really powerful.” But the R-word — with its connection to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities — faces a unique battle. “These are our most vulnerable members of society,” Riley says. “It’s difficult for them to advocate for themselves. … As a society, isn’t it our responsibility to make sure you’re not disrespected? If you can’t defend yourself, isn’t it our responsibility to do so?” Soeren Palumbo, whose sister has an intellectual disability, thought so. A graduate of the University of Notre Dame, he and Tim Shriver, a Yale University graduate, started the Spread the Word to End the Word campaign in 2009. Advocacy also has come from the federal government with Rosa’s Law, passed in 2010, which replaces “mental retardation” with “intellectual disability” in all federal legislation. Today, the Spread the Word campaign is a youth-driven effort by Special Olympics and Best Buddies, organizations that work with individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and provide resources to schools to promote the campaign. The official annual day of awareness is the first Wednesday in March. “It’s been a huge platform for a lot of
young people in the schools,” says Mandi DeWitt of Special Olympics Colorado. Colorado, she adds, is one of eight states with the highest youth participation in such activities. At Castle View High School in Castle Rock, where Brenden attends school and where he was elected this year as Homecoming Royalty for his class, hundreds of students signed a pledge to stop using the R-word. As part of the campaign, they stopped at tables at the cafeteria’s entrance to scrawl their names on banners. “I’ve been saying that word for a while now,” one young man said. “I’ve not been the kindest. This is sort of a way to make me stop saying that.” “My friend said it the day before,” another student said. “I told her to not say that — `It insulted me.’ That’s not the way I am.” Pam Baker, Brenden’s special education teacher, fought back tears as she watched student after student sign the pledge. “They were part of history,” she said, “paving the way for others not to hear the word retarded and make it extinct.” In the cafeteria, the public service announcement plays. Students sitting at the tables look up at the screen. There’s Brenden. “I say `retarded’ is the wrong word to say,” he says to his audience. “And that’s what I know.” That’s what we should all know.

Pet legislation sparks division Feel-good animal bill hits snag By Vic Vela
firstname.lastname@example.org It’s hard enough getting Democrats and Republicans to come together on much of anything without throwing cats and dogs into the mix. Our four-legged friends are getting caught in the crossfire over a bill that seeks to designate cats and dogs that have been adopted from Colorado animal shelters and rescues as the state pets. Sen. Andy Kerr, D-Lakewood, who is the sponsor of Senate Bill 201, said he wanted to recognize the “the excellent work that our rescue groups and our shelter groups do in finding homes for dogs and cats that truly need them.”
Jennifer Strickland, director of community relations and development at Golden’s Foothills Animal Shelter, said the bill “makes a lot of sense.” “I think any opportunity to be able to bring awareness to how wonderful shelter pets can be is a great thing,” she said. The bill will cost taxpayers just $650, in order to update state artwork and brochures, according to the Colorado Legislative Council. Kerr said he did not want to single out specific breeds in his bill, knowing how much controversy that could have led to. “This is a bill to bring all the factions together,” Kerr said. “Cat people and dog people can come together and support the bill. But don’t expect certain animal groups to roll over and play dead as the bill makes its way through the Legislature. “We don’t understand why it’s a bill,” said Dan Anglin of Anglin Public Affairs. “It doesn’t make any sense.” Anglin represents the Colorado Federa-
‘This is a bill to bring all the factions together. Cat people and dog people can come together and support the bill.’ State Sen. Andy Kerr, D-Lakewood tion of Dog Clubs, which puts on dog shows in the state, as well as the Colorado Pet Association, which represents animal breeders, retailers and groomers. He claims the bill would “create a perception” that it’s better to adopt animals from shelters, as opposed to seeking other avenues. “This bill puts into state statute that the state pet is how you acquire it,” Anglin said. Rep. Kathleen Conti, R-Littleton, originally was a House co-sponsor of the bill, but she said she plans on removing her name from the legislation, having looked it
over more closely. Conti, a former pet groomer, said she “is very supportive of our local shelters” but is uncomfortable in recognizing certain dog adoption groups over others. “How about we recognize what the dog ends up doing to help society and helps people, like service dogs?” Conti said. “I’d far rather see something like that than simply focusing on where you get the pet from.” Conti said she probably will vote no on the bill, but that she’s “not going to actively fight against it.”

A former Mountain Vista High School wrestling coach and English teacher, who was charged for allegedly having sex with a 17-year-old student while employed at the school, avoided a retrial upon reaching a settlement March 15. Frank Lavoie, who was tried on three counts of felony sex assault on a child by a person in a position of trust last September, had all three charges dismissed after pleading guilty to a fourth count of misdemeanor promotion of obscenity to a minor. Lavoie spent four days on trial in September, but the jury was unsuccessful in reaching a verdict and Judge Paul King ruled a mistrial at that time. Under the agreement, the former coach is expected to receive probation for two Lavoie years, be required to pay restitution, have no contact with the victim, enter into sex treatment therapy, have no contact with anyone under 18 until it is deemed appropriate by the treatment team, and register as a sex offender. Lavoie, who had been looking at up to 12 years in prison for three alleged 2009 incidents involving the victim, will be sentenced formally May 21 by King when the victim has the opportunity to be present and address the court. As part of the agreement, Lavoie will not serve any jail time. Speaking on the decision to go forward with an agreement and not retry the case, Deputy District Attorney Jay Williford said, “Without a doubt, the jury’s result at the previous trial had an effect.” Williford, who was filling in for fellow Deputy District Attorney Chris Gallo at the disposition, added that there was BRING THIS COUPON FOR $1 OFF ADMISSION also consideration given to the victim having to endure a second trial. As standard practice, Colorado Community Media does not list the names of victims in cases involving claims of sexual assault.

Schools get ‘D’ for online transparency Closed-door sessions, missing information bring down score By Jane Reuter
email@example.com The Douglas County School District earned a “D” rating from the Sunshine Review, a website transparency report card that ranks cities, counties and school districts nationwide. School officials said the website is evolving and is part of a larger enhanced communications effort that includes telephone town halls, parent email newsletters and a mobile app.
“We will continue to improve our website and strive to make information available to the public,” DCSD spokeswoman Cinamon Watson said. “We believe in transparency and have taken significant steps toward improving transparency in all aspects of the district.” Sunshine Review Kristin McMurray said transparency at the school level is important. “It’s concerning because parents have a right to know how their school district is being run,” she said. “Every citizen does, but a parent especially. They need to have access to contracts, audits and budget information. It’s not just about academic reports.” DCSD’s ranking was the lowest among Colorado’s 10 largest districts. McMurray contrasted it with Douglas County govern-
ment’s “A-plus” rating. “It’s kind of astonishing to see that level of transparency at a county level and not at the school district,” she said. DCSD was dinged for failing to provide contact information for its board members and superintendent and not posting contracts and bids over $10,000, among other items. Another bullet point noted, “The Douglas County Board of Education spends a significant amount of time (average is more than 1.5 hours) in executive session during regular meetings.” On the favorable side, DCSD was credited for including mill levies, taxes and expenditures in the budget, posting meeting minutes on its site and linking state testing reports. The Sunshine Review hired Chicagobased reporter Alex Keown to conduct the
research on DCSD. Governmental agencies’ ratings also were based on the amount of time it took the researcher to find required information online. “If we didn’t find it in five minutes, it’s marked as missing,” McMurray said. “If we can’t find it in five minutes, and we do this every day, a citizen never will.” McMurray said the Sunshine Review does give “F” rankings, and said the “D” grade isn’t uncommon among school districts. “In the past year when we’ve been rating the 10 largest school districts in every state, I’m unhappy to report it is very common,” McMurray said. “That doesn’t make it acceptable. “Nationwide, school districts are lagging on transparency more than any other government entity.”
Group’s rating brings responses from board Some members ready to make changes By Jane Reuter
firstname.lastname@example.org Douglas County School Board members had mixed reactions to the “D” rating the district’s website received from Sunshine Review, a nonprofit that grades website transparency for public agencies. “I’m of the view we’re the most transparent school district in the state of Colorado and if not, we’ll do what we need to do to become so,” President John Carson said during the board’s March 14 meeting. The Sunshine Review, based in Virginia, rates website transparency for states, counties, cities and school districts nationwide. Douglas County’s “D” rating was the lowest among Colorado’s 10 largest school districts.
“Frankly, they’ve listed some of the things we could work on and they are all extremely easy to fix,” board member Meghann Silverthorn said, noting a couple of factual inaccuracies in the review. She believes the board’s executive sessions, which the report notes take “a significant amount of time,” can be made more efficient. “I think we have some great ideas on how to fix that,” she said. “I’ll work with staff, and any one of Carson you, can work with me to implement that.” Board member Doug Benevento called the information about lengthy executive sessions an “unsubstantiated claim made by former employees,” adding, “There is not a scintilla of evidence out there” to support it. However, the recorded minutes on the
Douglas County School District’s website show the length of executive sessions increased substantially during recent years, from a recorded average of 20 minutes throughout 2008, to recent meetings in which executive sessions regularly last more than an hour and a half. The board typically reserves an hour and 50 minutes of each meeting for executive session, which board president John Carson said was justifiable given legal complexities surrounding the voucher lawsuit and other issues. “Setting aside two hours of meeting to receive that legal advice, I think, is appropriate,” he said in a September 2012 interview. Board member Craig Richardson said during the March 14 meeting that the board is properly exercising rights granted by the state Legislature. “I particularly find difficult to swallow the concept that parties can sue and then complain about the amount of time we
spend talking to our lawyers,” he said. Carson said the board has been a leader in some aspects of transparency. “I believe we are still one of the only two (school districts) that make every single expenditure available to the public on our website,” he said. “I’m proud that we’ve led the way.” The Sunshine Review credited DCSD for including mill levies, taxes and expenditures in the budget, posting meeting minutes on its site and linking state testing reports, opening and making public the 2012 union negotiations. Sunshine Review faulted DCSD for failing to provide contact information for its board members and superintendent and not posting contracts and bids over $10,000, among other items. The review’s managing editor, Kristin McMurray, said she would welcome contact from DCSD. “If there are any errors on our grade, we’d be happy to update it,” she said.

Critics of the Douglas County School District whose posts were removed from the district’s Facebook page aren’t buying the official explanation. Kevin Leung, a frequent critic of school leadership who made an unsuccessful run for school board in November 2009, started the Facebook thread when he posted a link to videos of board members interviewing candidates for a vacant seat. The link posted by Leung, who is among the 13 candidates interviewed March 5, was to the Strong Schools Coalition’s website. The group frequently has challenged school district actions, and most recently posted on its site a graphic questioning DCSD’s transparency. Leung’s Facebook posting and several responses were removed by the district, leading to claims of censorship. “They’re spamming people who are making comments that disagree and removing those posts,” said Anne Marie Lemieux, a parent who regularly attends school board meetings and has been critical of some board decisions. “We did not break any rules.” District spokeswoman Cinamon Watson said DCSD was following its policy. “We don’t advocate for outside groups,” Watson said. “We don’t post political messages. We are neutral in the information we provide to parents.” DCSD’s Facebook policy requests people not post “unauthorized commercial solicitations (such as spam)”; “bully, intimidate, or harass any user”; “post content that is hateful, threatening, pornographic, or that contains nudity or graphic or gratuitous violence”; or “do anything unlawful, misleading, malicious, or discriminatory.” “DCSD reserves the right, but is not obligated, to remove comments that contain commercial solicitations; are factually erroneous/libelous; are wildly off-topic …
‘I felt disrespected and embarrassed because my comment had been spammed.’ Connie Ingram or that otherwise violate Facebook’s Statement of Rights and Responsibilities,” according to the policy. Parent Connie Ingram said her comment, removed and later reposted, did none of those things. “Thank you, Kevin Leung,” she posted. “I asked on this page (below) for the audio of the interviews and have not received any response.” Though her post was restored, Ingram said the incident disturbed her. “I felt disrespected and embarrassed because my comment had been spammed,” she said. Comments from Trisha McCombs, whose “Douglas County Parent” blog includes the tagline, “Just a parent speaking up … whether the DCSD board of education likes it or not,” also were removed and restored. “I think they just removed comments they don’t want to see,” she said. “It’s just a trend of the district, that they’re shutting down dissenting views, and it’s frustrating.” When asked who manages DCSD’s Facebook page, Watson said it was the Community Relations department. Watson is the district’s community relations officer. When the concerns were brought to light, some of the deleted posts were restored. Several comments on the thread since have focused on the alleged censorship. While some are critical of the board and district, they have not been removed.

Rock Canyon’s Fordham honored s, it’s If we for biotech program

email@example.com “D” dis- Rock Canyon High School teacher Shawndra Fordham was surprised to hear atingher name called as the district’s secondary state,teacher of the year at last month’s Apple mon,”Awards ceremony. She’s more surprised, t ac-however, at just how many students she has turned on to biotechnology. gging Four years ago when she helped initigov-ate a year-long biotechnology course at the school in which students could earn college credit, she had about 40 kids show interest. That number has since quadrupled, and given its growing popularity, Fordham introduced a biotechnology club at the school last year. “The most important thing is that the kids are leaving excited and getting expoeadersure to different careers that they wouldn’t ever have seen before,” said Fordham, who y twoalso teaches honors biology at the school. ingle“I really like being able to open their eyes to n ournew and different things.” e led Among the eye-opening experiences have been trips to New York and San FranD for endiming re2012
Rock Canyon High School biotechnology teacher Shawndra Fordham, left, measures small amounts of liquid with senior Quincy Schurr with the help of a pair of micropipettors. Fordham recently was honored as the Douglas County School District Secondary Educator of the Year at the 2013 Apple Awards. Courtesy photo cisco, where club members have attended genetics conferences and toured major tech companies and research areas, giving them rare hands-on opportunities. Students have spent valuable class time on video conferences with researchers from
MIT, learned about everything DNA-related from clinical trials to patent law, and frequently participate in classroom debates over topics such as stem cell research. The Apple Awards program that honored Fordham is a fundraiser for the Douglas
County Educational Foundation. Rock Canyon Principal Andy Abner said he has received countless emails from parents over the past couple years that have said how much Fordham has inspired their kids to continue research in college and head down a biotechnology career path. “She gives them a real-world experience, really exposes them to the careers and lifestyles that are out there,” Abner said. “I think that one of the most amazing things about her is her ability to envision a way not to put limitations on the students. She doesn’t see them simply as high school students, but young men and women who can handle the rigors of a challenging college course.” Three of her students have already used connections they have made in the club or classroom to help set up research internships in college, and Fordham said the demand for her students is growing. What she is most proud of, though, is the number of kids who have developed a desire to further their studies in the field. “When they come in, typically about 20-25 percent of the kids show any signs of interest of doing something with biotech,” she said, “but when they leave, that number has grown to about 65-70 percent. That’s what is really nice to see. They are really starting to consider options for themselves and for their futures.”

It is your duty (dooty)!
Picking up after your dog goes further than making your neighbors happy. When you are out walking your dog, it is your duty to collect their waste. Often, the trails and parks we enjoy with our dogs are adjacent to creeks and reservoirs. Dog waste that is not collected gets carried away during rainstorms to nearby waterways and can be a significant source of pollution. Unlike one might think, dog waste is not a fertilizer. Rather, it carries harmful bacteria like E. coli, which poses serious health risks if allowed to come in contact with water.

opinions / yours and ours
a land with problems, a nation with laws The comments of Weld County Sheriff John Cooke, reported in the Greeley Tribune, are making waves and being picked up in national news. His words put him squarely in an informal group of so-called rogue sheriffs. According to news reports, Cooke said he is not interested in enforcing two particular bills – one expands background checks on firearms purchases and the other limits ammunition magazines to 15 rounds. In other reports, El Paso Sheriff Terry Maketa, who takes umbrage with the legislative process and bills being developed for gun control, seems to be part of the club. Yeehaw. Many of us like to think there is a little bit of frontier left in the culture of Colorado life. Some like to think being on the frontier means having the right to
our view be left the heck alone and not bother with too many laws. But even out West — now and in decades gone by — we expect the guy behind the star to stand with the law, whether right, wrong or otherwise — it’s the law. That’s why we appreciated the comments of Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson, who broke his silence on the thorny gun debate and voiced some choice words worth repeating in full. “For a public safety professional to suggest they can determine the constitutionality of an issue and establish public policy
based on that ill-conceived notion, would be tantamount to a police officer arresting an individual, determining guilt and sentencing the individual to incarceration in the county jail,” Robinson said. “This is not how our principle-based, constitutional system, functions. We are a nation of laws.” Robinson has it right, but in trying to understand the others, we don’t have to look far. The more than 1,700-word position paper by the County Sheriffs of Colorado opposes limiting magazines — calling for the need to have enough rounds to end a threat — and opposes extending background checks and registration, stating the government “does not have the right to know who owns a firearm or for what reason when used for lawful and peaceful purposes.”

It’s nothing but a ‘G’ thing I have had it up to here with anyone who drops the “g” off of an “ing” word. I am fed up with G-droppers. That’s what they’re called. Take Sarah Palin (no, YOU take her). Have you ever heard her “speechin’”? She is a G-dropper from way back. I am convinced her name is Sarah Paling. But “Palin” is as far as she can get. Dropping the “g” is fine if you are a folk singer. But for you and me, it’s not. I am staying alive, I am not stayin’ alive, and neither are you. Give me the King’s English. Other people might be Kingin’, but I am definitely Kinging it, man. Nothing escapes the Internet. There is site after site about G-dropping, and most of the content is beyond my grasp. “G-dropping now appears medially and finally in stressed and unstressed syllables, as in `singing,’” Barbara Strang’s “A History of English” says. “Its extension to unstressed syllables is quite recent, and has spread from middle class into general usage under the influence of spelling (or so the expression `dropping the g,’ for the older pronunciation, indicates).” I’m not exactly singin’ in the rain about this. Here’s more. “It is currently a feature of colloquial and non-standard speech of all regions, and stereotypically of Southern American English, African American Vernacular English, and Cockney,” a Wikipedia entry says. “Prevalent among some Alaskan vice presidential nominees.” Where would Bob Dylan be without it? Fixing, blowing, waiting, changing and dreaming, instead of fixin’, blowin’, waitin’, changin’ and dreamin’ is where. This makes my spell checker go nuts. There are two contributing factors that are not mentioned on any of these sites. The Cool Factor, and the Lazy Factor. G-droppers are cooler than those of us who do not G-drop. Check out who is doing it. You didn’t hear Alastair Cooke dropping no “g’s” on “Masterpiece Theatre,” did you? But show me a rapper who isn’t a
Keep politics out of libraries G-dropper and I will show you a rapper in the cut-out bin. We’re lazy. We’re all lazy-minded, even if we don’t g-drop. We speak and write in overused words, filler words, we hem and haw. We overuse idioms like “hem and haw” instead of coming up with something better, something unique. So sawing off the end of an “ing” word is just an opportunity to be English-lazy. If you speak too smart, you might be observed with suspicion, or simply beaten up. Try listening to a few athletes talk. Most of the time it’s painful. Not always. Arthur Ashe was very eloquent. Bill Bradley, former Princeton basketball star and U.S. senator, is very eloquent. Lars Skulnick, Northwestern punter, was class valedictorian. His commencement address is still being quoted. Try listening, I said. Try listening to yourself. Most people don’t. I no longer have lunch with anyone who doesn’t care about words. I sit there and wince without wincing. I know I am nitpicking and that sometimes I look at form rather than content. Ultimately it’s content that carries a conversation. How much better is it to say, “I experienced a regurgitation on Lenny Dykstra,” than it is to say, “I, uh, like threw up on Lenny Dykstra”? The point is, you had an embarrassing moment, and a direct thought, unfiltered by a college degree, is sometimes the ticket. Craig Marshall Smith is an artist, educator and Highlands Ranch resident.

My recollection am g is that the analysis by this newspaper of the library issue was that Highlands Ranch, with a large population and a large, nearly new library, had voted strongly against funding for additional libraries. Parker and Lone Tree, where new libraries were planned, voted in favor of the issue. Moreover, the outcomes on all three funding issues were consistent with the fiscal conservatism of Douglas County. That said, our First Amendment protects Commissioner Hilbert’s right to express his opinion, even though it does not represent the official opinion of the Douglas County commissioners. I strongly support his right to freedom of expression. I also strongly support the right of the director of Douglas County Libraries, Jamie LaRue, to express his opinions, even though they do not represent the official opinions of the libraries’ board of trustees. We have an excellent, innovative, and award-winning library system in Douglas County. The libraries have extremely high usage and a large cadre of active volunteers. From my perspective, the board of trustees has done an admirable job. The board has the best understanding of the skills required by a library trustee, and all new trustees already require approval of the county commissioners. We should allow the trustees to continue to choose new members, rather than trying to fix something that isn’t broken. Please don’t politicize our libraries. Denise Seldon Lone Tree

Trying my hand at barter system “Do you believe in bartering?” That was the question I received recently from a loyal reader in the community. First she asked me if I believed in the barter system, and if my answer was yes, the second question she asked was around my willingness to barter with her for our respective services. I found the offer intriguing, as her services could really help me professionally. And based on the status of her personal and professional life, she could probably benefit from business and life coaching. Before going down the rationalization exercise, I had to make sure it was in alignment with my belief system. It was. So I decided to analyze the opportunity and I started with my own question, “Is there truly mutual value and benefit in trading the services we both offer?” After consideration, my answer was yes. Next question, “Would I have the time to apply to make sure I could live up to my end of the bargain?” Again the answer was yes. The last question was more about doing my due diligence to make certain that the person I was going to swap services with was legitimate and would also complete the deal. The answer was also yes. Again, I have had inquiries and requests to donate my time and services, and if at all possible I will absolutely do that every time that I can. But the barter concept is something I am going to test a little further.

Don’t silence library director
There are certain products and services that I can use or benefit from, and I know the companies or people who can offer them to me could probably benefit from or enjoy some business or strategic planning, coaching, mentoring, training, or a keynote speech. I know, I know, cash is king and we live in a society where paying for products and services is the norm. I am not saying that we should move to a complete barter system, not even close. I am just going to explore this a little more, test the waters a little bit and see if mutual value can actually be gained through the barter process. I would love to hear your thoughts on the barter system. You can email me at email@example.com and together we can make this a better than good week.

I still have hope that the Douglas County commissioners will come down on the side of freedom of expression and support the Douglas County Library board and the library director, Jamie LaRue. Recent comments indicate they want to control, and thus silence, an important voice in our community. Commissioners Jill Repella’s and Jack Hilbert’s recent comments about LaRue show a lack of an appreciation for a tireless defender of freedom in our county. LaRue has won Colorado Librarian of the Year in 1998, the Julie J. Boucher Award for Intellectual Freedom in 2000, the Castle Rock Chamber of Commerce’s Business Person of the Year in 2003, and the National Council of Teachers of English/Support for the Learning and Teaching of English Intellectual Freedom Award in 2004. He’s succeeded in moving the library system into the 21st century and making our libraries the place to be for children, teens, and adults alike. I am outraged at their criticisms of him and their power grab to take over the library district. Commissioner Hilbert believes that “LaRue’s controversial points of view hurt the library district in the 2008 (mill levy increase.)” (The News-Press, March 7, 2013.) What an outrageous claim! This county almost never votes for increases in public funding, whether it be the library, the schools, or bus service. I would expect
the conservatives elected as county commissioners would come down on the side of freedom. Isn’t that what they claim conservatives are all about? Kathy S. McKittrick and Denis Gessing Castle Rock
Hilbert’s comments ‘irritate community’
In Rhonda Moore’s story about proposed changes to the appointment of the Douglas County Library District’s Board of Trustees, the “problem” seems to be the director, Jamie LaRue. Commissioner Jack Hilbert believes LaRue’s “controversial points of view hurt the library district in the 2008 election when 52.6 percent of the voters said no to a library mill levy increase.” Please share some statistics on that, Mr. Hilbert. Do you also blame LaRue for voters defeating Ballot Issue 3A, a mill levy supporting Douglas County School District RE1 in that same election? This is yet another frightening example of “if you don’t follow our rules, we will change them” (i.e: voting in the 2012 election). Jamie LaRue has been a fresh and independent voice in this community as well as a tremendous asset to the Douglas County Library District. Part of your complaint is “bringing up issues that irritate the community” — and you, Mr. Hilbert, have certainly done just that. Susie Scott Castle Rock

Board: Member cites doctor’s career experience Board continues from Page 1
“We will be going against a union that is willing to spread false information,” Williams said. “They are going to be vicious this fall, and well-funded. Can this person withstand these inevitable personal attacks, gear up, spread the truth about education and win this
November?” Board member Craig Richardson said Mendoza’s career instills her with qualities that will be valuable to the board. “The perspective she brings as a physician is quite important, particularly in the type of medicine she practices,” he said.
“Our culture trusts doctors for a reason.” Gerken was the board’s vice president, so board members also had to select a new person for that role. They chose board member Kevin Larsen. Other finalists included Daniel Coombe, Aaron Johnson, Brant Phillips, Randy Reed and Judi Reynolds.
Guns: All Republicans voted against both measures Guns continues from Page 1
Lebsock of Thornton and Leroy Garcia of Pueblo all voted against putting in place magazine limits. Vigil also voted against the background checks bill, along with Sen. Lois Tochtrop of Thornton. All Republicans voted against both measures.
House Bills 1224 and 1229 join the previously passed House Bill 1228 — which requires that gun buyers pay for their own background checks — as three major pieces of Democraticsponsored gun-control legislation that have now reached Hickenlooper’s desk. The governor is expected to sign all
three bills into law. Two other gun-control bills continue to work their way through the legislature: Senate Bill 195, which bans exclusive online training for those seeking concealed handgun permits; and Senate Bill 197, which would prohibit domestic-violence offenders from having access to guns.
Morse/Parmalee Mr. and Mrs. Richard H. Morse of Littleton, CO, are proud to announce the marriage of their daughter, Nicole Alexandrya Cherie Morse, to Bryson Charles Parmalee, son of Mr. and Mrs. Dave Parmalee of Aurora, CO to be held on March 23, 2013 in Las Vegas, NV.

Immigration law could be sidelined by General Assembly Move gets support from both parties By Vic Vela
firstname.lastname@example.org A Thornton Democrat is seeking to repeal a state law that requires police to report those they suspect of being in the country illegally to immigration authorities. And it’s an effort that has support from Republicans, as well as from members of the law enforcement community. Rep. Joe Salazar said his House Bill 1258 would prevent local officers “from engaging in federal immigration enforcement,” as well as would help re-establish trust between police and immigrants. “It brings back dignity between law enforcement and the communities,” Salazar said before the House State, Military and Veterans Affairs Committee on March 18.
Salazar’s bill would repeal a law that was put in place in 2006, which critics say creates paperwork headaches and is redundant and divisive. They point to a federal program that local law enforcement already adheres to called Secure Communities, which requires that police use fingerprints from arrestees to identify illegal immigrants with criminal backgrounds. Critics say the Colorado law puts law enforcement in the awkward position of having to determine whether someone is here illegally on initial contact. Members of law enforcement say jails already are full, and keeping someone locked up for a traffic violation, just because they’re suspected of being the country illegally, is not the best of use of their resources. “My jails are overfull,” said Boulder County Sheriff Joe Pelle. “I don’t have extra resources to hold people for civil violations in my jail.”
Norma Morones testified that she was pulled over for a minor traffic offense in 2011, and ended up being taken to jail and held there until immigration authorities could sort out her residency status. Morones said the incident resulted in “stress and fear and depression,” and left her hesitant to reach out to law enforcement again, even in cases where she wanted to report serious crimes. “Because of this incident, I lost trust in the police,” Morones said, through a translator. The bill passed the committee on a 9-2 vote, with two Republicans — Reps. Tim Dore of Elizabeth and Ray Scott of Grand Junction — casting a yes vote. It’s possible that even more GOP lawmakers could end up voting for the bill, as it goes through the legislative process. “I came into this a very strong no,” said Rep. Jared Wright, R-Fruita. “I’m now a very soft no.”

What is the most challenging part of what you do? Probably the most challenging thing about my job is balancing Work and home life. With Real Estate, you are always on call and have to be available for your clients. In addition, with regards to client relationships, the challenging part is getting them to not take the comments and feedback so personal. It is not an attack on them but just a tool to see what the Market is saying.

Fighting Foreclosure & Promoting Hope intricacies of the short sale and because the banks really do not want homeowners to walk away, the team discovered the power of negotiation and the value of consistency in tearing down red tape. Thanks to their patience, persistence and a lot of hard work, Your Hope Team now has access to a bounty of valuable knowledge and resources to help those facing foreclosure fight it with discretion and dignity.
Since 2008, 3.7 million Americans have lost their homes to foreclosure according to a recent report by Corelogic. Today, there are 1.4 million homes currently in the foreclosure process. No matter the reason for falling behind, facing foreclosure is scary. Families in danger of losing their homes can be overwhelmed by stress and fear. They don’t know what their options are or where to turn for help. That is where Moe comes in.
It is imperative that homeowners in distressed situations have an agent who can deal with the complexities of a short sale. Your Hope Team can expedite this process, with an immediate plan of action that can bring relief and hope when it is needed most.
Motenia Rose-Deaver, “Moe” is a real estate agent in Jeffco and a top local producer. When the market took a devastating dive in 2007, she saw the desperation of the community. Homeowners, caught off guard, were facing a horrible crisis and had no idea where to find a path to relief.
The goal of Your Hope Team is to offer the emotional support to give homeowners a sense of being back in control of their lives, their homes and their dignity. These are hard times and they are determined to try to share their knowledge, experience and strength.
Moe decided to devote her time and talent to helping these homeowners in need. Adding to her 20+ years of experience in real estate, Moe became a Certified Distressed Property Expert in 2008 and has been pulling off the seemingly impossible since then.
“The only thing stronger than fear is HOPE!!”
Are you one of the following...
In January 2008, Moe formed a group called, “Your Hope Team” to reach out to the Jefferson County community and Denver Metro area. Moe and her team immersed themselves in the foreclosure process, determined to learn the inner workings. Along the way, they became well versed in the

Artist Kyle Banister letters a specialty golf cart for the Birmingham (Ala.) Barons minor-league baseball team. He paints a variety of subjects but any aspect of baseball is his favorite. Photos by Tom Munds
Sports artist is on the ball Works include portraits, golf carts, drawings By Tom Munds
firstname.lastname@example.org Kyle Banister is a full-time artist with many talents and many interests. “I don’t have a favorite medium. I like them all,” he said with a smile. “As for subjects, I like to draw everything I see and I will do artwork on just about anything that stands still long enough for me to get to work.” He uses a variety of mediums including markers, acrylics and enamels and his subjects vary from a painting of a woman done on wood to his artwork on golf carts created for the Birmingham Barons baseball team. But he’ll tell you his favorite subject is baseball. His said his works are where baseball meets art. “I think baseball is the greatest game there is,” he said with a smile. “It’s simply a great metaphor for life. My grandfathers both loved baseball and encouraged me to play even though I was too small to really play the game.” He played youth baseball on the old fields at Englewood City Park, was sold in the 1960 for development of Cinderella City Shopping Mall. That early exposure, he said, planted the seeds of his love for baseball, and he likes to tell stories through his artwork centered on baseball. He said it isn’t just the players, but it also is about art about the inner workings of the game. He said he set out to try to make a living doing baseball art even though there wasn’t a big market for sports art in the Denver area. He said he was fortunate to make good connections doing art focused on baseball. He also branches out to other sports including wrestling, football and, most recently, hockey. He does some artwork for Root Sports, and a drawing he did for Root Sports of a portrait of Todd Helton done against a background of a baseball scorebook won an Emmy Award. He has a big date on opening day for the Rockies when, for the second year, he will be doing chalk art outside Coors Field. He said it was a hit last year on opening day and he was pleased to be invited back. He said he likes different media and doesn’t have a favorite, and he also is look-
One of the best parties I have attended lately took place March 13 inside the $5 million refurbished meeting spaces inside The Westin Downtown Denver Hotel. The event, which showed off the new digs of the mezzanine-level Continental Ballroom, renamed the Confluence Ballroom, as well as the ballroom foyer and all breakout meeting rooms. To unveil the renovation, The Westin’s sales team partnered with Destination Services Design Team to transform the space into specialty rooms such as a Molecular Microbrew bar, a Rock ‘n’ Roll sushi station and a soothing Spa-Ception room. “A major component of the project was leveling the mezzanine-level fixed-seat Tabor Auditorium to create an additional 3,000-square-feet of flexible meeting space,” said Tom Curley, the hotel’s general manager and owner Starwood’s area managing director. “This new space, called the Platte River Room, allows the hotel to service groups more effectively by offering additional dining and meeting space options.” Yes, the spruced-up space looked lovely, but the most outstanding aspect of the party was something I’ve never seen done in catering before: a salad martini bar. When I glanced over to that food station, I thought, “Oh no, another mashed potato bar. No thanks.” But when I saw socialite and philanthropist Susan Kiely munching salad in a martini glass, I had to investigate. Rather than heavy mashed potatoes, the station offered a healthy selection of salad ingredients mixed in a martini shaker (not stirred) with your choice of salad dressing. Bravo and brilliant!
In the limelight Kyle Banister adds the flames to his baseball bat creation he calls “Firewood.” Baseball is his favorite art work subject and other examples of his creations are on the table in front of him.
‘I think baseball is the greatest game there is. It’s simply a great metaphor for life. My grandfathers both loved baseball and encouraged me to play even though I was too small to really play the game.’ Kyle Banister ing for new fields he can explore with his art, which now includes doing body art. Banister said he had the bug to do art since he was a kid but everyone discouraged him, telling him his artistic talents were fine but he couldn’t earn a living as an artist. “I believed them so I never took an art class in high school,” he said. “Instead I took all those classes like algebra that I thought would help me get a steady job.” The former Englewood resident said he never gave up “playing with art” in every job he had, including painting designs on vehicles when he was in the motor pool in the Army. He lettered race cars and, while working for Burt Subaru, painted national ski team designs on their vehicles. He went on to start a sign company, and he said he called himself a graphic designer and not an artist during those years. He said life changed in 2001 when he took some classes and a couple instructors told him he was a good artist. They got be-
hind him and encouraged him to make use of his talents to pursue his desire to be an artist “I followed their advice, entered a couple art shows that led to my first solo art show and kicked off my career as a full-time working artist,” he said. “It was an emotional time and, while it would seem it would be a difficult decision to make such a major career change, it really wasn’t. It was so easy in some ways. My kids were grown and I was single, so I could do what I wanted to do. It proved to be the most important decision I have ever made.” He said his only regret was that he didn’t make the decision to become a full-time artist 40 years before, about the time he graduated from Alameda High School. Banister grew up in Englewood and attended Petersburg School through the fourth grade. His family eventually moved to Lakewood and he still lives in southern Jefferson County.
The 23rd annual Limelight Awards, which recognizes outstanding people and places that over the past year have embodied the true spirit of LoDo, took place Thursday in the refurbished McNichols Civic Center Building, on the corner of Colfax and Bannock. (Frankly, not my favorite space for an event because there is mostly metered parking and no valet.) But the event, despite the number of guests who were ticketed for expired meters, was a festive celebration put on by the LoDo District Inc. This year’s awards went to: Cares Award for philanthropic contributions to the neighborhood: Carol Ann and Paul Rothmann for the Downtown Denver Children’s Playground. Spotlight Award for a successful marketing campaign that brought activity to the area: Tom and Diane Coohill, owners of Coohills restaurant at 1400 Wewatta, for the Beats on the Creek concert series. Legacy Award for development projects that contribute to LoDo’s culture of historic preservation and innovation: Wazee Supper Club. Service Award for those who go above and beyond to aid LoDo District Inc: Rob Grey, LoDo District Vice Chair. New Business Award for a new neighbor who has made a notable impact: Springhill Suites Denver Downtown at Metro State.

firstname.lastname@example.org A lively collaborative concert for children is planned at 2 p.m. April 7 at the PACE Center in Parker. The Parker Symphony Orchestra and Young Voices of Colorado will join forces to benefit the Children’s Hospital in Parker. Before the concert, starting at 1 p.m., conductors Rene Knetsch of the PSO and Jena Dickey of Young Voices will hold free 15-minute workshops for children of all ages. The program will include “Nursery Rhyme Cantata” by Nicholas Page and “The Prayer” from “Hansel and Gretel” by Engelbert Humperdinck, performed by Young Voices, a youth choral group. Also, the orchestra will play The “Harry Potter Symphonic Suite,” and the “Darth Vader Imperial March,” both by John Williams; “Mars” from Gustav Holst’s “The Planets”; “Bowl of Notes” by Gregory Smith; and “William Tell Overture” by Giaochino Rossini.
Rene Knetsch conducts the Parker Symphony, which will perform with Young Voices of Colorado at 2 p.m. April 7 at PACE Center, a benefit for Children’s Hospital in Parker.

Denver Water Prepares for Drought Conditions and Beyond The Denver metro area must brace for one of the driest summers in a decade, the leader of the state’s largest water utility told a group of business leaders from the South Metro Denver Chamber this week. Denver Water CEO Jim Lochhead hosted about 30 of the chamber’s members and special guests at the utility’s headquarters Monday to talk about drought conditions in 2013 and what the utility is doing to prepare for the coming years. “We are facing a future of increasing uncertainty,” Lochhead told the group. “Drought, forest fires and the potential for increased demand stemming from climate change are things we have to be prepared to deal with as they will significantly challenge water supply managers across the West. In addition, aging infrastructure, consumer risk tolerance, economic uncertainties, growth and a changing regulatory environment are challenges for the future. “ The luncheon, which was co-sponsored by the Chamber’s Energy and Sustainable Infrastructure Council, brought business leaders from across the region to meet and talk with Lochhead about what the challenges are and why we’re facing them. Lochhead warned that despite recent snow events, the region is facing the driest summer conditions since early 2000. And that unless there are drastic climate shifts that bring more water, the utility will be forced to impose restrictions on customers that would include twice-a-week watering restrictions, asking restaurants to serve water by request only and working with businesses like car washes to limit consumption. “Even though we’ve seen some great snow in the metro area, our water supply comes from the mountains, and prior to this weekend, we needed an additional 8 to 10 feet of snow in the high country to help us out of the drought,” Lochhead said. “Prior to this recent snow, our snowpack in Denver Water’s watersheds is approxi-
mately 60% percent of average. “We have learned a lot of lessons from the 2002-2004 drought,” he added. “We think that we are about as prepared as we can be.” Part of those preparations involve the heightening of the Gross Reservoir dam in Boulder County, which would double the reservoir’s storage and enable Denver Water to have more in reserves for dry seasons. The utility has been bogged down for years through the permitting process to make the expansion happen and Gov. Hickenlooper has written to President Obama to try to speed up the federal process for getting approval to heighten the dam. Also, as part of Denver Water’s conservation efforts, the utility is forming a project with 17 entities to supply more customers in the south metro area. Once approved, the partnership, called WISE, which stands for Water, Infrastructure and Supply Efficiency, will provide new supplies by combining unused water in Aurora with unused supplies from Denver. During years when Denver and Aurora don’t need the water, 15 Douglas County entities that make up the South Metro Water Supply Authority will be able to purchase the unused portion to reduce their reliance on nonrenewable groundwater sources. The partnership is still being finalized, but Denver Water expects to start capturing unused water and selling it to South Metro in the next few years, Lochhead said. “Water is such a precious resource, and this really was a terrific opportunity for influential leaders in the south metro business community to hear and understand what is in store for us in the future,” Chamber President & CEO John Brackney said. “It’s important from a community standpoint that we get the word out to all the citizens that water conservation is important.” Business leader Jeff Keener, who heads
and throughout the year. Plans for the 2012-2013 season include collaboration with the Parker Chorale, a young artist piano competition and cooperation with Voice of the Wood, a cello quartet. Director Rene Knetsch is a performing violinist, teacher and conductor who teaches and conducts the Arapahoe Community College Orchestra and plays with the Central City Opera orchestra and, with his wife, in the Confluence String Quartet. For information, see parkersymphony.org. Young Voices was started in Littleton 23 years ago by director Jena Dickey and now works with more than 200 children from second grade through high school across the metro area. Choirs rehearse once a week and offer two major concerts. They also perform by request with instrumental and choral groups. Enrollment begins in May for the next school year and classes will be in the Centennial area. For information: youngvoices. org.

the chamber’s Energy and Sustainable Infrastructure Council, applauded Denver Water’s efforts for getting word out about upcoming conservation needs. “It’s important for Denver Water to do a good job to explain why, so people understand the restrictions,” Keener said. “For business development, I don’t think the upcoming drought restrictions will affect new construction for companies, because it sounds like Denver Water has done a good job to prepare for those eventualities. “I really have to take my hat off to everything Denver Water has done to serve its customers and the region as a whole in their conservation efforts and drought preparations,” Keener continued. The South Metro Chamber Energy & Sustainable Infrastructure Group’s mission is to: 1) educate, inform, and promote the open exchange of ideas; 2) collaborate & grow business relationships; and 3) to promote prosperity through policy - all through the context of technology, renewable and traditional energy sources.

When you are lost, you are not alone …” Sister Aloysius (Anne Oberbrockling) and young Sister James (Rachel Graham) appear in the school office, discussing a child Sister James has sent home with a nosebleed.

Sister James is sweet and trusting and genuinely cares about her students. Oberbrockling owns this part, with tense manner and halo of negativity. She asks the young Sister James why she doesn’t send more eighth-graders to the office for discipline. Then she veers off on the evil of ballpoint pens — inappropriate for proper penmanship! This conversation moves to questions about Father Flynn’s protective relationship to a young black boy — the only one at the school — is it perhaps inappropriate? This drives the rest of the play, with a dramatic exchange between the seemingly vindictive nun and Father Flynn.
There follows a powerful scene between the boy’s mother, Mrs. Miller (Ziedha Peterkin) — who just wants him to graduate from eighth grade, no matter what, so he can go on to a good high school — and the older nun who is focused on bringing Father Flynn down. With a splendidly written script, a quartet of accomplished actors and a prize-winning director, Cherry Creek Theatre has a sure hit on its hands. Reservations suggested.

Parker: Eatery serves up delicious pig wings Parker continues from Page 20
The exclusive invite party gave media and other guests an hour to peruse the new space before opening the doors to supporters of the Ballpark Neighborhood Association. As advertised, the eatery featured an eclectic spread of bar bites from chef Jose Guerrero (from Roy’s Cherry Creek, Mao and Pizza Republica), Colorado-centric cocktails and microbrews and the spectacular view from the rooftop patio bar. VIEWHOUSE is a Denver corporation comprised of principals Brad Manske as managing partner and nightclub king Francois Safieddine as landlord and money man.
Wings and things
Can pigs fly? They do at Grillin’ Wings & Things at 723 S. University Blvd. (southwest corner of University and Exposition). The new fantastic wings joint (I tried them recently and can you say fingerlickin’ good?) features pig wings (lip-smacking mini pork shanks served “special grilled” style tossed in a choice of sauces), along with egg-cellent chicken wings grilled or deep-fried. Chicken tenders and jumbo shrimp also grace the menu, along with salads and wraps. Sides include deep-fried corn on the cob, garlic parmesan fries, and beer-battered
onion rings. The sauces are a standout with everything from honey hot to sweet ginger Thai to spicy garlic chili. Many of them are glutenfree. Grillin’ Wings also serves wine and beer. Fly on over and check out this place.

The Walnut Room’s two locations — Two North Broadway and 3131 Walnut St. — have expanded their gluten-free offerings. In addition to glutenfree pizza, the restaurants have added gluten-free bread for sandwiches and a flourless torte. The Walnut Room restaurants have also expanded their gluten-free beverages. “We are proud to offer our gluten-sensitive customers more choices to make their dining experience more varied,” said Leslie Odell, director of operations.

Falcons fall just short of title Regis Jesuit girls down Highlands Ranch for 5A crown by Jim benton
firstname.lastname@example.org BOULDER — Highlands Ranch’s players filed out of the dressing room at the University of Colorado’s Coors Events Center with ice packs taped on a couple players. The Falcons’ comeback bid fell short as Continental League rival Regis Jesuit claimed the Class 5A girls state basketball championship with a 53-46 win March 16. “The kids played hard,” Highlands Ranch coach Caryn Jarocki said. “I’m really proud of them.” Highlands Ranch, with a team loaded with four senior starters, was seeking its eighth state title in the last 13 seasons, but poor shooting (28.9 percent) and turnovers (21) were costly for the Falcons in a game featuring two good defensive teams. “We had way too many turnovers and we started out way too slow,” Jarocki said. “If we could have hit some 3s early in the game it would have changed the complexion of the game. We were shooting bricks. “When we did crash the boards, we got some easy put-backs. We sort of let loose on a few fundamentals.” Many of the Falcons’ turnovers were unforced and going 4:16 without scoring a point in the first half forced Highlands Ranch to play from behind. Highlands Ranch was 4-for-17 from 3-point range and missed six long range shots in the first half. However, the play of Abriana Lujan gave the Falcons (23-5) an opportunity to win as she scored 10 of her 12 points in the fourth quarter. The 5-foot-10 senior had eight points in the final 2:11 as Highlands Ranch overcame a 10-point deficit. She hit two 3-pointers and made two steals in the last 60 seconds. Highlands Ranch, which cut the Raiders’ lead to two points with 46 seconds remaining, was behind by three when Lujan drove to the basket, scored and appeared to be fouled with 18 seconds to play. However, she was called for a charge to wipe out the score and possible tying free throw. Four consecutive free throws by the Raiders, which made 9-of-10 attempts from the charity stripe in the final two minutes, sealed the win for a Regis squad that had no seniors on the team. “That was all heart,” Jarocki said of the Falcons’ rally. “We had a bunch of fighters and they fought the whole way.” Lujan also had 11 rebounds in the game to pace the Falcons who received a 12-point, nine-rebound performance from senior Madison Montgomery. Junior starter Cierra Morgan and Symone Starks, a freshman reserve, are two key players who will return next year for
Highlands Ranch’s Ciera Morgan battles for a rebound during the Falcons’ Final Four matchup with Arapahoe on March 14 at the Coors Event Center. Jarocki, Colorado’s all-time winningest girls coach with 506 victories. “We had a lot of challenges that no one knows about that we had to overcome,” Jarocki said. “A lot of kids were sick, we had a lot of injuries, we missed CC (Morgan) at the beginning of the season and she came on late. “So to be able to overcome all that adversity and to be able to get to the championship game was huge. And that was not our only goal. We did want to win. It was a great season.” Regis has been in the state championship game four of the past five seasons, also winning in 2009. Raiders coach Carl Mattei figures the rivalry with Highlands Ranch will continue. “They have a good coach,” Mattei said of the Falcons. “They are a team that has a standard they set and no matter who is on that team, the standard is what the focus has to be. With our program, it’s the same thing.” The Raiders’ Justine Hall scored a gamehigh 24 points and was 9-of-10 from the foul line. Hall connected on 7-of-15 field goals in a dominating performance and was supported by Diani Akigbogum’s 10-point, 13-rebound effort before the 6-foot junior fouled out late in the game. Kelsi Lidge also scored 10 points for Regis. Regis had nine juniors, a sophomore and freshman on its roster for the state tournament, which bodes well for another run at the state championship in 2014.

Golden Eagles can’t overcome Raptors Mountain Vista ‘kids fought to the end’ in playoffs by Jim benton
email@example.com BOULDER — Mountain Vista took another step this season in building a strong foundation for its boys basketball program. The Golden Eagles won their first 19 games, climbed to the state’s No. 2 ranking and were one of the last four Class 5A teams to still be playing last week. Mountain Vista finished the season with a 23-3 record following a 74-59 semifinal loss to eventual state champion Eaglecrest on March 15 at the Coors Events Center. “The kids fought to the end,” Mountain Vista coach Bob Wood said. “Each year
we’ve gone from (Sweet) 16 to (Great) Eight to the Final Four. We’ll see what happens next year. We’ll have a good squad next year. We lose a lot of valuable guys. We have some good players coming back. It’s hard to think about next year right now.” The Golden Eagles’ leading scorer, junior Jake Pemberton, who averaged 17.5 points a game, returns along with junior Greg Smith, who was the team’s secondleading rebounder. However, among the seniors who won’t be back are Elijah Valdez, who scored at a 17.2 clip, and Mitch Carter, who contributed 11.8 points and 8.9 rebounds per game. “It was a great group of seniors.” Wood said. “They just never quit. They played hard and deserved everything and maybe some more because they really did a good job as far as being in the gym and doing what we asked them to do and being good teammates.
“We were trying to get to the Final Four and that’s an experience in itself. I didn’t feel we played one of our better games, but that’s a credit to Eaglecrest because they played real good defense, turned us over and got a lot more easy baskets than we did.” Pemberton scored 17 points against the Raptors, Valdez added 16 and Carter pulled down 11 rebounds for Mountain Vista, which shot 32.8 percent for the game. “We squeezed out two games in the playoffs just to get to the Final Four,” Wood said of a 59-57 win over Lincoln and a 7876 double overtime victory over Cherokee Trail. “We were hoping to get another close one and win it at the end.”

Valor’s run ends in championship game Boys team finishes season 22-5 after loss to Lewis-Palmer By Jim Benton
firstname.lastname@example.org BOULDER - Ronnie DeGray’s debut season as Valor Christian’s boys basketball coach was a success. DeGray’s Eagles finished 22-5 and came within one game of winning the Class 4A state basketball championship. Lewis-Palmer captured its second consecutive state championship with a 51-40 victory over Valor on March 16 at the University of Colorado’s Coors Events Center, the venue where DeGray played two seasons of collegiate basketball for the Buffs. “I knew coming in it would be tough learning my system,” DeGray said. “The first ride was fun but all rides come to an end.” All five of the Eagles’ starters in the championship game — Christian McCaffrey, Paden Mueller, Marcus Wilson, Chase Foster and Garrett Baggett — were juniors. Foster led the Eagles in scoring with a 19.7 average and the starting lineup will return close to 58 points per game next season. “The future is bright,” DeGray said. “I learned a lot from these kids this season.” Valor held a 30-29 lead early in the fourth quarter when Lewis-Palmer went on a 10-2 surge and took control of the game.

Local golfer wins tourney
Arapahoe’s Hannah Wood, the runner-up in last spring’s Class 5A girls state championship golf tournament, won the Kathy Whitworth Junior Golf Invitational last week at Mira Visa Country Club in Fort Worth. Wood bogeyed the first three holes but managed pars on the next 15 to fire a final round 74 and claim a one-shot victory. She opened the two-day tournament with a one-underpar 70 and had a two-day total of 144 in her first appearance in a national tournament.
with 17 points. Valor shot only 32.6 percent from the field for the game. Valor’s players showed class after the title game as they watched the Rangers accept the gold ball that goes to the state championship team.
The finish was just the opposite of Valor’s dramatic comeback March 15 in a 75-74 semifinal victory over Broomfield. Valor trailed by 12 points early in the fourth quarter against Broomfield and were behind 71-63 with 1:25 left to play. Three free throws by Foster with 31.6 on the clock pulled Valor close at 74-72 and when Broomfield’s Alec McLain missed a shot it gave the Eagles from Highlands Ranch a chance. Valor didn’t have a timeout and Wilson drove the lane, passed to Luke Proctor in the corner and the senior took his first shot of the game and buried a winning 3-pointer shot five seconds before the final buzzer. Broomfield race down court but Spenser Reeb’s shot bounced off the rim. “I just spotted up in the corner,” Proctor said. “I wasn’t really looking for the shot. I thought someone else was going to take it but when it came down to it, I just had to put it up. Marcus drew the double team by driving. “My teammates did a good job of helping us come back. We hit free throws, we made some smart plays and we got some good stops on defense. Chase had some big points, Garrett had some big points. We were trying to get the ball to Chase at the end but they knew that so I was ready and hoping it would come to me.” Proctor, a senior, played only three minutes in the game but he was carried off the floor by his teammates at the end of the game. Foster had 25 points and nine rebounds in the semifinal win, while Baggett added 20 points.

Warriors move up in rankings
Arapahoe defeated second-ranked and Continental League power Regis Jesuit, 8-5, last week and the Warriors climbed to eighth in the Class 5A baseball rankings that were released March 18. Ted Ramirez drove in three runs and the Warriors drew eight walks against Regis pitchers. The Raiders dropped to fourth in the latest rankings. Cherry Creek was top-ranked while Chaparral was sixth, Highlands Ranch ninth and Legend 10th. Valor Christian was sixth in the Class 4A poll and Lutheran ninth in the Class 2A rankings. In other baseball highlights last week, Rock Canyon waited until the seventh inning to earn two victories. The Jaguars scored a run in the top of the seventh to beat Denver East, 13-12, and pushed two runs across the plate in the bottom of the seventh in an 8-7 victory over Lakewood. Josh Brown collected three of ThunderRidge’s 10 hits in an 11-0 blanking of Rangeview.
