Teachers facing unique ratings

GOING OLD SCHOOL

Administrators cite reasons not to use statewide system By Jane Reuter

Fall festival attendees take a hay wagon ride around Schweiger Ranch Oct. 14. Activities for kids and adults during the free event included hay bale throwing, butter churning, scarecrow making, a pumpkin patch and petting zoo. Tours of the ranch highlighted its place in Douglas County’s history. The ranch is located east of Interstate 25, just south of RidgeGate Parkway.

Service puppy a real class act Dog in training accompanies Highlands Ranch High student By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews. com Five-month-old Flynn pads through the halls of Highlands Ranch High School with a calm that belies his age, his furry blond brow wrinkled in what appears to be studious concentration. In fact, his teenage trainer believes he’s scanning the floor for scraps of food. It’s among the most challenging aspects of bringing a guide dog puppy-in-training to a high school. But a high school — rife with sudden movements, noise, food, odors and the loving hands of students — is an ideal place to train an animal that must learn to filter distraction, believes junior Melissa Petrick. Petrick, whose family has raised two other guide dogs, also likes the novelty. “I bring him to school because it’s fun,” she said. And not only for Melissa. Despite a vest that clearly identifies Flynn as a trainee, many students can’t resist the lure of a puppy. “Some kids don’t understand they’re not supposed to pet them,” Melissa Petrik said. “But most of them are pretty

Melissa Petrick checks on guide puppy Flynn during her algebra class at Highlands Ranch High School. Photo by Jane Reuter good about him being here.” Flynn is a candidate for future service with Guide Dogs for the Blind, a Californiabased organization that provides guide dogs to the blind or visually impaired. He is the third guide dog the Petrick family has raised, each time returning the dog to the agency after about a year of housing, training and loving it. The young dogs then are enrolled

in formal training; only about 60 percent graduate and are placed with people who need them. Melissa Petrick hopes Flynn is among that group. “You want them to make it through the program,” she said. “When they graduate, we get to meet the blind people. They’re so cool and so thankful. That’s such a nice feeling.” Melissa Petrick first had to

get permission from Principal Jerry Goings to bring Flynn to school. Goings didn’t hesitate. “You can say ‘no’ to a lot of things, but then you miss out on some many educational opportunities,” he said. “What kinds of opportunities are there for high school kids to have that kind of impact on society? The responsibility, the whole idea of paying it forward? I think it’s pretty amazing.” So does Melissa’s mom, Tina, who readily agreed when her daughter asked to take a lead role in Flynn’s upbringing. “I think volunteering and working for a greater good is an important lesson,” she said. “I feel it’s important for Melissa to do that, and to model it at school.” The Petricks are co-raising Flynn with Cindy Barnard, who also lives in Highlands Ranch. The three of them meet regularly with Lone Tree’s Dru Anne Marshal, a guide dog puppy-raising leader who guides and assists volunteers. There is little she can do, though, to prepare them for the day the puppies return to Guide Dogs for the Blind. “I will tell you that it never gets easier,” Marshal said. “That could be why I’m raising my 19th puppy. It takes a bit of the sting out of it to give up a puppy and get a new one right away.” For more information on the volunteer program, visit www.guidedogs.com.

Douglas County school officials say their new teacher and principal evaluation systems are more focused than the state’s, and will be easier for staff to use and understand. Under Colorado Senate Bill 191, adopted in 2010, school districts statewide must adopt new teacher and principal evaluation programs by the 2013-14 academic year. The Colorado Department of Education has created a system available statewide, which it’s piloting now in 27 school districts, but the CDE also allows districts to build their own program. The Douglas County School District opted to craft a plan, also planned for use as a pilot this year, and administrators say they had solid reasons for doing so. “We were really hoping the state would have a good tool, but it’s just not,” said Dan McMinimee, assistant superintendent of secondary education. “It just seemed like way too much, and it didn’t seem like it was going to be a fit for Douglas County. Our teachers and principals deserve to have an instrument that is usable and effective, and give them accurate information to develop.” By comparison, the CDE’s user guide for teachers is 105 pages; the district’s equivalent, 25. The district’s proposal also is tied to its world-class education targets, 11 educational goals it’s setting for teachers designed to prepare students for an international market. Because those targets are unique to Douglas County, the state’s system doesn’t include them. DCSD took issue with language in the CDE’s document that says elementary school teachers must be experts in literacy and mathematics, as well as all other content they teach. Secondarylevel teachers, while not required to be experts, also must have “knowledge of literacy and mathematics, and be an expert in her or her content endorsement area.” District leaders saw that language as overreaching. “If I’m a PE (physical education) teacher, and I’m responsible for students exceeding expectations in reading, writing, speaking and listening, that doesn’t

Shops for immigrants aren’t strictly business Indira Torres stands behind the counter, mahogany hair neatly pulled back, ready for the steady flow of requests. “How are you?” she asks in Spanish as a man in paint-spattered pants, a camouflage Air Force hat tipped back on his head, walks through the door. “Muy bien, gracias a Dios,” he says. Very well, thanks be to God. He hands his check to Torres to cash. A young mother pushes a stroller inside and gives Torres $40 to pay toward her light bill. Torres taps in the woman’s information on the computer and applies it electronically. An older man pays for a calling card to Mexico. A young woman adds $3 on a rechargeable phone account. A daughter sends her retired parents, in their 70s and in Mexico, several hundred dollars for living expenses. A son wires his mother — and a sister — also in Mexico, enough money “so that they won’t lack for anything.” This small storefront, in a Latino market that sells the fond tastes of once-upon-a-time lives, has become a one-stop shop that helps preserve the connection between the old country and the new one. It also provides the financial services essential to begin planting stable roots here. It’s like a warm, comfortable home, says Mayra Saldana, a petite 28-year-old Littleton resident who with her parents

owns the Littleton store and another in Denver that adjoins a restaurant. “We provide the services where we can send money to their families and, as well, commonly used ingredients for Hispanic dinners.” Food for the soul in every way. The businesses, throughout the Denver metro area, nearly shout their services in bold-colored lettering in Spanish to passersby — money transfers, checkcashing, calling cards, money orders. Like Saldana’s two places, many share space with restaurants, small neighborhood markets or convenience stores that sell everything from piñatas and cowboy boots to pico de gallo and baptismal candles. One, on Federal Boulevard in Denver, advertises its services in a jewelry store. The stores are a cultural reference point for many Latino immigrants, says Laszlo Kalloi, community affairs consul for the Mexican Consulate in Denver. He notes that consulate officials encourage the use of traditional bank services, rather than the private businesses, because more financial options are of-

fered. But the neighborhood locations and absence of a language barrier make them feel more comfortable, he says. “They know the system and it’s easier.” Walking through the doors is like stepping into another country, one with mariachi or cumbia music soft in the background, freshly baked pan dulce on trays and Spanish CDs and DVDs on the racks. The sweet-spicy hot tamarind candy and crispy homemade chicharrones take me back to my growing-up years in Mexico and the other Latin American countries we lived in when my parents worked for then-United Fruit Co., which produced Chiquita bananas. The nostalgic warmth of memories tease my heart for the culture I love deeply, and I can only imagine how it must remind many how far they are from home. And, yet, maybe not so far, at least for a few moments, with the assistance of people like Indira Torres, 27, who drives six days a week from her house near I-70 and I-25 to Las Huertas Mexican market. She doesn’t mind the commute to Littleton. “I am happy here because I know these people. I feel like this is my second home.” With a kind smile, she deftly works the computer like a magician. She knows how to make the transfer happen, which calling card to suggest and how to exchange cash for money orders to pay the rent. She gets the job — all

the jobs — done. For construction workers. Restaurant waiters and busboys. Mostly men, but some women, too. Mostly from Mexico, Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala. But also some from India, Saudi Arabia and Africa. They all come, many weekly, to conduct their financial transactions with confianza, Torres says. Trust. That is why Veronica Vargas, 37, on a recent afternoon, walked in after her restaurant shift to send money to her family in Mexico. Trust — and the language — make it “easier.” She is one of 10 siblings and also has many nephews and nieces. She tries to help her parents out the most, but “I help them all,” she says. “Not always, because sometimes, I can’t. But a little bit.” These are the stories Torres hears every day as she facilitates the connection from the home in the new country to the home in the old country. Money sent to buy medicine, to help build a house, to make life a little better. Stories about the bond that transcends the miles — love.

Teachers frustrated by district changes

Union compiles concerns, comments to pass to school board By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com Many teachers are confused and frustrated by district-level changes they say haven’t been well thought out or explained to them. New teacher evaluation standards are too complicated, they say, creating apprehension among staff. Their opinions are in stark contrast to those of district officials, who believe their proposal is focused, and easier to use than the state’s planned evaluation system. Teachers shared their concerns in a series of union-led meetings at Douglas County schools and community centers during the last month. Union leaders

HAVE A NEWS TIP?

plan to pass those comments on to the school board. “We think it’s important to hold the district accountable,” said Brenda Smith, president of the Douglas County Federation. “In 20 years in this system, there’s more ambiguity than ever before, and a sense of hopelessness and helplessness.” Evaluation standards proposed under the district’s pay-for-performance program will determine teachers’ future salaries. But some instructors said they don’t understand what the district expects from them, so they can’t earn the “highly effective” ratings that will trigger pay bumps. As an example of what Smith describes as ambiguity, she points to a proposed DCSD instructional standard that reads: “Teacher facilitates learning opportunities that inspire students to achieve world-class outcomes.” The word “inspire” is not defined,

Send your news tips, your own photographs, event information, letters, commentaries ... Please share by contacting us at news@ ourcoloradonews.com and we will take it from there.

Smith said, and though the district recently released a list of 11 phrases it said define world-class education targets, she said many teachers find phrases like “authentic assessment” and “sustainable learning” too vague. “Teachers have no problem being held to a high level of accountability and wanting to improve their craft,” she said. “But when it’s ambiguous, it makes it difficult for us to hit those targets.” District leaders acknowledge the language needs further clarification and said they want teachers’ help with that task. “We want to go from murky to clear, so they know exactly what those targets look like and they are able to shoot for those,” Dana Strother, chief academic officer for elementary education, said in a district video. Several teachers who spoke during the union’s Oct. 8 meeting at the Lone Tree Recreation Center think the state’s proposed evaluation standards are easier to

understand than Douglas County’s. They question the district’s decision to create its own program. “Why do they think we need to be different? Why do they think they know better?” asked one teacher. “There’s such distrust right now between the teachers and administration building, we are all very leery of whatever comes out of it.” District officials said they don’t expect the transition to the new standards to be immediate. “Change is difficult, especially when people perceive it as this is what allows me to keep my job or not,” said a Dan McMinimee, ssistant superintendent of secondary education. “I don’t think it’s high-stakes this year.” McMinimee said the district is working to provide its staff with a thorough explanation of the ongoing changes with a combination of district videos, blogs and emails.

‘Union watchdog’ group starts Douglas campaign Washington-based nonprofit says DCF blocking education reform By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com Recent ads criticizing the Douglas County teachers’ union likely are the leading edge of a long campaign, a spokesman for a Washington-based union watchdog group said. The Center for Union Facts placed television, radio and print advertisements that accuse the Douglas County Federation of blocking education reform in an effort to protect itself. A recent print ad depicting striking Chicago teachers says the union “is bringing Chicago-style tactics to Douglas County” and using kids as “pawns in their political games.” “I think we’re only getting started,” said Justin

Wilson, the Center for Union Facts’ managing director. Union president Brenda Smith said Wilson’s assertion that DCF members oppose reform is false. “Our union has never blocked reform. Ever,” she said. “He doesn’t know what’s going on in Douglas County. If he knew anything about Douglas County, he would know we were one of the first districts to have pay for performance, and that the union supported Senate Bill 191. All of those are in line with ed reform.” The 2010-approved SB 191, also called the Educator Effectiveness Bill, dramatically changes the way teachers are evaluated, tying them to student performance, among other factors. The union does not, however, support the district’s voucher program, which was declared unconstitutional in 2011 and is being appealed. “When you’re talking about vouchers and taking

public dollars out of the education system, to me, this is not reform,” Smith said. The nonprofit Center for Union Facts is not anti-union, Wilson said, but a watchdog group that focuses on specific union issues. It keeps a particularly close eye on the American Federation of Teachers, the parent arm of the Douglas County Federation as well as the Chicago Teachers Union. The Chicago Teachers Union held an eight-day strike last month, prompted by a variety of concerns. Wilson described the AFT as “aggressive in its demands to halt education reform.” “We try to find situations where teachers’ unions are being unreasonable,” Wilson said. In Douglas County, “You’ve got this reform-minded board that’s at the forefront of education reform. I think they’re being really innovative and the union sees that as a big threat.” Wilson said he could not release names of donors supporting the campaign, saying only that they are local. He confirmed that Richard Berman, a controversial Washington lobbyist and attorney, is on the nonprofit organization’s board of directors. The Center for Union Facts manages the Facebook page “I Stand with DougCo Kids,” which originally was launched by Douglas County-based Parent Led Reform. Parent Led Reform director Karin Piper and Wilson both said they no longer are working together. “Parent Led Reform certainly launched the campaign,” Piper said. “We don’t have anything to do with that right now.” Strife between the union and school district hit a boiling point this summer when negotiations between the two sides failed, and the longheld collective bargaining agreement expired.

Eldorado students rehearse real life

Fifth-graders put civic, financial lessons to use n

-

rBy Ryan Boldrey rboldrey@ourcoloradonews.com t e Eldorado Elementary School students nfrom Highlands Ranch had the opportusnity this past week to put some of their nstudies to practical use. f Over the past eight weeks, fifth-gradsers at the school have been learning about saving, investing and budgeting -money, as well as what goes into the costs hof running a business, how businesses hinteract with one another and supply and sdemand. In other words, just what is that real world really like? A trip to Young AmeriTowne in Lakewood Oct. 10 gave the students a pretty fun glimpse into that world as students spent the day playing the roles of bankers, grocery clerks, postal carriers and media representatives and served their fellow students as policemen and medie cal doctors. h The town even elected two of its own -to serve as the mayor and judge of Young AmeriTowne. , As mayor, Nick Perri got to fill out ta business license; fill in for the judge, nCassidy Palmer, when she was on break; -design a website for the town; and supeport local business while he was on f break. But first he had to be elected by his peers. y e “I think my friends and the whole fifth grade just liked my speech,” Perri said sabout being elected. “I talked about how I was good with computers and how I had experience in .being a leader. I’ve been a student representative a lot and captain of teams several times in football, baseball and soc-cer.” Perri and Palmer both got a heavy taste for civic duty in their roles, as Palm’ -er collected $2 fines for rule breakers who were running, screaming, chewing gum or breaking other town rules. d Others got to the heart of the financial education that Young Americans — the .organization behind Young AmeriTowne — is all about. n “It is a full economy, there really is a lot going on,” said Katie Payer, vice president of communications for Young Americans. “Each shop has a manager and an actcountant, and just like in the real world, those positions are paid a little more than tthe worker bees. Everyone gets one paycheck and they get two breaks, so they -have to learn to spread out that paycheck over the two breaks.” The students will deposit their paychecks at the bank, cashing part of the checks and depositing the rest into their h

Some places only accept cash, while others require a debit card purchase or the students to write a check, teaching them how to track spending, and at the same time, how to pay for things in different fashions. If they have leftover money, students are encouraged to donate it, learning philanthropy as well. While working, students have to pay for print advertising, create radio or television commercials and manage payroll if they are in a management position. And before they get their job assignments, students also have to go through an interview process. “My interview was very scary, because I was with my teacher’s husband,” said Brett Masten, an employee of the sign and print shop. “My number one choice was graphic artist, but I got the second best thing.” Masten, who was busy working on advertising when he was interviewed, said he learned that there’s a lot of politics involved with making money and that he didn’t realize how much money was really used in everyday society before his experience. “I went as a fifth-grader, so it’s neat to come back and do it again,” said Eldorado teacher Lindsey Hahn. “They learn what real life is like, that you can only spend as much as you make and that you have to make sure you balance everything and have budgets.

The race for Colorado House District 44 is not characterized by the typical vitriolic campaign ads that bounce back and forth between candidates, but that doesn’t mean that this year’s candidates see eyeto-eye. Incumbent Chris Holbert, who came onto the political scene when he defeated Peter Douglas Ericson in 2010, is quite upfront with his conservative viewpoints and his goals for the district he serves. His opponent, Libertarian first-time candidate Jarrod C. Austin of Parker, however, acknowledges that he is probably not the correct candidate for District 44, which contains parts of Parker, Aurora, Lone Tree and unincorporated Douglas County. Below are Q&As with the two candidates. • Chris Holbert What makes you the best candidate for this office? My voting record, ability to identify innovative solutions, and success at working across the aisle to advance better ideas. The legislative process is referred to as the “art of compromise.” Too often, that means giving up half of what we support in exchange for half of what we oppose. That type of “compromise” changes our circumstances, but gets us nowhere. Business personal property tax relief, transparency requirements for court-appointed investigators, and

parent empowerment in working with schools to decrease dropout rates are three examples of bills where we worked with Democrats to find better solutions rather than settle for less. What do you see as the biggest challenge facing District 44 and what would you do to meet that challenge? State legislation differs from federal legislation in that we do not have “earmarks” or other district-specific incentives. Prosperity does not come from the government. Thus, my interest is in getting government out of the way. We need more companies employing more people. I’ll heap credit upon the shoulders of Douglas County Commissioner Jill Repella and Sen. Mark Scheffel for our work to finally achieve some relief to the job-killing, growth-stifling, business personal property tax. Our bill, which provides incentive for new or expanding businesses, received unanimous bipartisan support in the House and Senate: 98 yes, zero no, two excused. What should be done to improve Colorado’s K-12 educational system? Colorado is a local control state. There are 178 school districts, each with broad discretion as to how it delivers education to students. Today’s digital native learners have less need for a place to learn and greater need for mentors who can teach them how to apply the information that is so readily available. We should be aware of how online and blended learning can be incorporated into existing neighborhood, charter, home, or private schools. Concurrent enrollment, which can

allow a student to use district funds to begin college studies while still in high school, deserves greater awareness and participation. • Jarrod C. Austin What makes you the best candidate for this office? I am honestly not the best candidate for this office, but I hope that I can inspire the best candidate to win this office in the future. I am trying to stand up against two-party politics and represent the party that I believe has the best platform. I hope I can inspire people to look into the Libertarian Party and realize that there is a choice beyond the Republicans and Democrats, and hopefully that will in the near future give us the best candidate for this office. What do you see as the biggest challenge facing District 44 and what would you do to meet that challenge? I think the biggest challenge in this district is to fix the educational system. Please see my response to the next question. What should be done to improve Colorado’s K-12 educational system? I don’t have all the answers to solve the problem, but here are some goals that will help. I would like the parents to be able to decide how the money for their child’s education is spent. They should be able to choose which school to send their child to. Then the schools could compete for the attendance of children by providing better quality education at a better value. When the parents have the choice and the schools have to compete, then the kids win.

Crime reporting site can cause confusion Homicide attempt tagged as slaying By Ryan Boldrey

rboldrey@ourcoloradonews.com An attempted homicide in Highlands Ranch this July has caused confusion to some residents over whether an actual murder took place in a Cedarcrest Circle home. The incident, a stabbing that occurred the morning of July 17 in the Hearth subdivision, is coded as a homicide on the public website, crimereports.com. According to both the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office and Coroner Lora Thomas, no death occurred at the scene or as a result of the incident. The red “H” — the only one of its kind on the site in Highlands Ranch over the past six months — raised a definite red flag

OCTOBER SPECIAL

for Hugh Whitmore, a resident who had been considering moving into the subdivision. Not knowing where to turn for more information, Whitmore knocked on some doors, asking residents of the neighborhood what they knew. The only resident who had heard anything had been incorrectly informed by an alarm company salesperson who was using the crimereports.com information as a sales tactic, telling people that someone had been killed in the neighborhood and encouraging residents to buy an alarm system because of it. Not to fault the salesperson, though, anyone who goes to that site and searches for homicides in Highlands Ranch over the summer would see one pop up on the 10600 block of Cedarcrest Circle. And why would anyone think a

homicide didn’t occur? According to sheriff’s spokesman Sgt. Ron Hanavan, one issue with the site, in addition to providing a very limited amount of information on a single incident, is that it does not pull the word “attempted” from their report when it posts an incident. “It pulls information from our records system based on the `occurred incident type,’ without regard to whether the crime was attempted or completed,” Hanavan said. “In this case, the ‘occurred incident type’ was appropriate for the circumstances, but because of limitations in the way crimereports. com pulls summary data, the word ‘attempted’ does not appear in the search result. “We make every effort to ensure that information put out for public consumption is accurate, and in this case it was ac-

curate, albeit incomplete. Like any informational tool, crimereports.com may provide information that is not completely fleshed out.” Standard practice for law enforcement agencies is to not release any information on investigations that are open, but certain crime reporting websites, such as crimereports.com, allow the public to see incidents that have occurred and may still be under investigation. “The information provided on crimereports. com is a resource and convenience tool for the general public,” Hanavan said. “We ask that if someone has a specific question about an incident that they inquire through an open records request, or by calling. The department will always be happy to provide any information it can.” The sheriff’s office can be contacted at 303-6607544. If an investigation is still open the department may not be able to provide any information, or only a limited amount. Hanavan said the case on Cedarcrest Circle is still open and no charges have been filed at this time.

First lady Michelle Obama speaks to more than 3,100 supporters Oct. 11 at the Douglas County Events Center in Castle Rock. Photo by Courtney Kuhlen | ckuhlen@ourcoloradonews.com campaign speech that painted a picture of her husband’s humble beginnings and built upon his policy issues that ranged from health-care reform to equality in the workplace. “I want to make sure people understand Barack Obama knows the American dream because he’s lived it,” she said. “He has been fighting every day so that everyone can have that same opportunity no matter who we are, what we look

like or who we love.” The events center welcomed a ticketed, standing-room-only crowd much different than the Republican-centric crowd that typically fills the venue during a political gathering. In a county where Republicans outnumber Democrats by more than two to one, the Obama/Biden ticket might have been aiming for Douglas County’s registered voters who are not registered with

a major party. Out of nearly 212,000 registered voters in Douglas County, about 33 percent are registered as “other” party affiliates, according to www.DouglasVotes.com. Party affiliation wasn’t an issue to most in attendance at the Obama event. Emotion was what mattered to those at the rally, and Obama raised the emotional bar several notches for the people who were randomly selected to join her on stage. Event organizers picked about 50 visitors from among the waiting crowd more than an hour in advance as people from across the Front Range arrived throughout the morning to see Obama speak. Among those chosen were families from Highlands Ranch, Lone Tree, Parker and Castle Rock. For Lindalee Johnson, of Parker, and her 13-year-old son Connor, it was an “unbelievable chance of a lifetime,” she said. Lindalee Johnson came away with a conviction to head directly to the Obama campaign office and volunteer for the 26 days remaining in the campaign, she said. Connor Johnson is counting a different set of days. “I can’t wait to vote,” Connor Johnson said. “Only five more years.”

OPINIONS / YOURS AND OURS

‘Everybody’s talkin’ at me . . . ’ “I don’t hear a word they’re sayin’.” The truth is nobody is talkin’ at me. I do get a few calls from pollsters, for whom I have some ripe words. They are able to circumvent my no-call number, but they can’t circumvent the depths of my wrath. It includes expletives in three languages. I might also use the words “reprisal” and “goat.” Otherwise I may get one land-line phone call a day. Zero cell phone calls, because I don’t have a cell phone. I am a freak. I think the freaks are about 8-9 percent of the population. I don’t even know my girlfriend’s phone number. We have been together one year, and we have spoken on the phone maybe three times. Don’t call me maybe, Carly Rae Jepsen. You’re very cute, but I just don’t like telephones anymore. I use mine to call my sister and to call my dentist and plumber, that’s about it. I am addicted to emails. It’s true. The benefit is that emailing improves my writing ability. That’s true too. I am a writer, not a public speaker (anymore; I used to be a schoolteacher and yakked all

the time). Almost any kind of writing improves my writing. Sometimes an email can be misleading. Am I being serious, am I joking? You have to be dexterous in emails or your next one is an explanation of your last one. I had to break off one correspondence. I told her it was like getting emails from a squirrel. Nuts. Non-sequiturs, convolutions, vortexes of imagery. I am a non-linear thinker, and I tend to write that way. One thing will lead to another to another. It drives some people crazy. Fortunately my girlfriend likes it and she can play along. I call that “pingpong.” I serve a reference and she returns

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Longtime district attorney backs Feldman I was the elected district attorney for the Eighteenth Judicial District (Arapahoe, Douglas, Elbert and Lincoln counties) from 1969 until 1997. The district attorney is one of the most important offices in the county, as the person in this position sets the tone for the enforcement of the criminal laws within this jurisdiction. The district attorney is the voice of the victim in court, the voice of the community in the criminal justice system and the advocate for adoption of programs to reduce criminal activity. A district attorney should have the personal and professional ethical commitment that is needed to fulfill the trust placed in him or her, be dedicated to achieving justice, be honest beyond reproach and possess the skills to manage a staff of over 220 employees and manage a budget of approximately $19 million. Ethan Feldman was one of my outstanding deputies, and later a chief deputy district attorney handling the most serious cases. Ethan also trained and supervised new deputy district attorneys. He entered private practice and later served as a judge in our district for 20 years. During his entire career, Ethan Feldman has demonstrated those qualities I have listed above, and has the knowledge, ability and character to be an outstanding district attorney and one of whom we can all be proud. I urge you to join me and over 100 present and former prosecutors in supporting Ethan Feldman, and urge you to cast your ballot for him in the upcoming election. Robert Gallagher Greenwood Village

Feldman possesses strength, integrity It’s not surprising that Sheriff Grayson Robinson and former District Attorney Bob Gallagher, both Republicans, have decided to cross party lines to endorse Ethan Feldman, the Democratic candidate for district attorney in the 18th Judicial District. (Denver Post, Oct. 9, 2012.) They are only a few of the present and former GOP elected officials to do so. They recognize that district attorney is an office where what matters is not the party but the person. A prosecutor does not make political decisions. At least we

hope not. I don’t know Ethan’s opponent, who to the best of my knowledge has worked primarily as an Army JAG officer and as an assistant DA in Golden. But I know Ethan, who was once chief prosecutor and for 20 years a judge in the 18th Judicial District. He not only has experience on both sides of the bench, but is a person of extraordinary strength and integrity. At a time when this district’s population is growing rapidly, especially in Douglas County, we need to think deeper than party affiliation when filling this highly visible office. We would do well to elect Ethan Feldman as our next district attorney. Dan Danser Castle Rock

Gardner is right choice for 4th District As you may know, most of the people in Douglas County now reside in Congressional District 4 with Congressman Cory Gardner. I believe it is important for the citizens of Douglas County to know who Cory is and what he stands for. I know him personally and support his run for CD4. Congressman Gardner embraces the same principles and values that are so personal for the folks here in Douglas County. He wants to balance the budget, will work diligently to develop a fair, more reformed tax code, and will work to get the federal government out of the way so our businesses and families can thrive. He understands we need to get the federal spending under control and that we cannot and I stress cannot tax our way out of the $16 trillion in debt that we face as a nation. We have a clear choice on Nov. 6 and as a citizen of Douglas County, I encourage you to vote for the candidate that stands for fiscal responsibility, transparency and less government intervention. Cory will help preserve what we love most about our community and will have an open-door policy to all the citizens of our area. He will stand up for what we believe in. Please join me in marking your ballot for Congressman Cory Gardner for Congressional District 4 on November 6. He is the right choice!!!!! Margo Knutson Franktown

it. Most people can’t return the serve, and just look blankly at me. There’s an employee at Ace Hardware. I thought she might be a ping-pong player. I was way wrong; the last time I tried, I thought she was going to call security. (Security is a codger named Carl, by the way, who specializes in bulk screws.) I am reading a book that was recommended to me by one of my readers. “Quiet” by Susan Cain. “The power of introverts in a world that can’t stop talking.” “At least one-third of the people we know are introverts. They are the ones who prefer listening to speaking, reading to partying; who innovate and create but dislike self-promotion; who favor working on their own over brainstorming in teams.” Most of that applies to me. I am not a top-drawer listener, and I do like to talk. I have a voice and a face for radio, and I am full of opinions. But I haven’t been to a party in 20 years. Don’t invite me. I am lousy at self-promotion even though I am in a field that demands it in order to get anywhere. Sometimes I don’t

even announce or attend my own exhibitions. The funny thing is I keep getting asked (to exhibit); I was in four shows simultaneously in September and October. Who knows? Cain’s writing on shyness and introversion has appeared in The New York Times. I may be introverted and reclusive but I am not shy. I would say reluctant to be around other people. You won’t catch me on the streets of Highlands Ranch on weekends. It’s a zoo. There are no parades for me. No art festivals, weddings, and don’t even think about seeing my shiny face at a New Year’s Eve party. I would rather eat a sweatshirt. I know you are out there and wishing you had my life. I have no family picnics to schedule. I live in blissful quiet, most of the time. If the phone doesn’t ring, it’s me.

Disconnecting to stay connected Wow, the other day my whole family was called out by my mother-in-law. She had been staying with us for a while, and one evening she had come into the living room, where she saw everyone in the family with their head down and iPhone, Droid, laptop, or iPad in their hands. Have we really gotten that bad? In retrospect, and unfortunately, the answer is yes. Here we were on a night when I wasn’t traveling and my children weren’t working at their part-time jobs or hanging out with their friends. We were all together in one room and yet totally disconnected. Now typically we leverage the power of technology to stay in touch with calls, Skype video calls, loving text messages, and postings and messages on Facebook because of our conflicting schedules. But I guess we had gotten so used to being connected virtually, maybe, just maybe, we had become disconnected in reality. So I wanted to see if we were the only family or people prioritizing our lives

We want teachers, where it fits, to be those content experts.” The evaluations are tied to future pay increases, and are designed to motivate teachers to improve instructional techniques and, consequently, student performance. Choosing to improve, McMinimee said, will be every teacher’s choice. “But you’re not going to be a teacher in our district if you don’t want to get better,” he said. Despite some teachers’ fears to the contrary, the district will find the money to reward its best teachers, McMinimee said. Those increases definitely will go

Now, as I made my way through the cabin, I witnessed more than half the passengers with their ear buds already plugged in, heads down looking at their phone, Kindle, or iPad. Upon arriving at my destination and waiting to meet my party at a restaurant, I saw a family very close in number and ages to my own family. As they sat waiting for their name to be called by the hostess, dad was pacing near the door on a call, mom was texting, the eldest daughter had her iPod on and ear buds in, and their son was playing a game on his smart phone. Although I found many other similar situations, it did not provide me with any comfort nor validate or vindicate the inappropriate use of technology in my own home.

But going forward, I am going to really consider how and when I will use it, asking myself, “Is this one more minute of doing the wrong thing that will rob me of one more minute of doing the right thing?” Kudos to my mother-in-law, for calling us out.

to teachers rated “highly effective” under the evaluation system. “Our teachers deserve that,” he said. “Moving forward, there may be an opportunity to reward people that are (also rated) ‘partially effective.’ Hopefully there will be. It all depends on money.” The district is using $4.2 million already existing in its pay-for-performance budget for the one-time cost of building and testing the system. In the future, the $4.2 million set aside annually in the pay-for-performance budget will be available for use as teacher bonuses. A gradually improving economy also could spell increased education funds from the state.

Discount stores add to retail options Savers, Dollar Tree doing brisk business in Highlands Ranch

Entertainment awaits!

In affluent Douglas County, the phrase “discount store” was synonymous with retailers like Nordstrom Rack. No longer. Savers secondhand store and the Dollar Tree recently opened side-byside near the intersection of Quebec Street and C-470 in Highlands Ranch, and both report strong early sales. Business at Savers has been “fantastic,” said the store’s retail sales manager Tammy Forbes, a fact she attributes at least as much to the pleasure of bargain shopping as the slowly recovering economy. “Do you know how much fun it is to come in here and find an Ann Taylor for $7.99?” Industry statistics show plenty of people share Forbes’ definition of fun. The resale industry has grown by 7 percent in the past two years, with annual revenues of about $13 billion, according to NARTS, an association for those in the resale industry. Their research shows today’s thrift-store devotees cross all economic levels, including those drawn by economic necessity, green shoppers who prefer recycled goods to

Centennial resident Connie Russell displays one of her Savers’ finds during an Oct. 9 shopping excursion with her son to the new Highlands Ranch store. Photo by Jane Reuter new, and shopping hobbyists lured by the thrill of a find. Shoppers at the Highlands Ranch Savers support those findings. “Even when I wasn’t a stay-athome mom and had disposable income, I still would come to secondhand stores,” said Centennial resident Connie Russell, shopping with her baby boy. “I like finding a bargain.” Savers joins Plato’s Closet, Uptown Cheapskate and a handful of consignment shops already in business in the Highlands Ranch area. The Dollar Tree, meanwhile, is the first dollar store in Highlands Ranch — a community in which the

$104,000 median household income is twice the state and national averages. Both stores are welcome additions to the area’s retail landscape, said Highlands Ranch Chamber of Commerce LaRae Marsik. “We have it all in Highlands Ranch from discount options to amazing luxury retailers,” she said. “It speaks to the diversity of taste and clientele we serve. Whether they live, work and play in Highlands Ranch, or whether they travel through the community to some other destination, there’s a really interesting combination and diverse mix to meet all those tastes.” Adding such stores also keeps tax dollars stay in the community, she said. “People were already shopping that way,” Marsik said. “Now we’re not losing business to other areas that may have had more variety in that discount sphere.” Highlands Ranch resident Shelley West is a living example of that. Once a mall shopper, she now steers clear of the crowds, costs and parking issues she found there in favor of discount retailers like TJ Maxx and Ross. Until the Highlands Ranch Savers opened, she’d never before shopped at the thrift store chain. But logic will bring her back, she said, holding up a near-new toddlersized dress. “Especially for my grandchildren, it doesn’t make sense to buy new,” she said, adding with a smile: “It’s always good to get that bargain.”

Where were you born? e I was born in Detroit and grew up in Northville, Michigan. My Mom still lives in the house I grew up in. n

-How long have you lived in the area? I moved to Denver in 1980. s What do you like most about it? Mountain views every single day, the big blue sky and the denergy of the city. h How long have you worked in Real Estate? . Since 2004

house? Find a real estate professional you trust to provide and analyze data, navigate the process, advocate for you and help you achieve your goals.

What do you most enjoy doing when you’re not working? Travelling, reading, cooking and spending time with family and friends.

What is the most unusual thing you’ve encountered while working in Real Estate? I recently showed a condominium to a client that was priced so incredibly low, we HAD to see it. Standing at the front door, we both looked around and felt funny, but couldn’t put our finger on it until we went inside and discovered the entire building had serious settling issues. The small unit we were in leaned more than one foot from one side of the living room to the other. It made us dizzy looking around - we felt like we were on a boat!

What is one tip you have for someone looking to sell a house? Once you make the decision to move, work with a staging professional to create a plan and get your home in move-in condition before you pound the sign in the ground. Buyers always have more money than time and will pay a premium for a home in great condition which will result in a faster sale and more proceeds for Sellers at closing.

What is your specialty and what does that mean for the people you work with? , ” I specialize in residential real estate – everything from helping my clients buy and sell single-family homes, townhomes and condominiums, to purchasing investment properties, foreclosures and HUD homes, to helping them successfully navigate short sales and avoid foreclosure.

nterest rates now are near 60year lows. People are securing 30-year loans under 4 percent and 15-year loans in the low 3-percent range. This makes owning a home much more affordable and is why we are seeing significant increases in home purchases and mortgage refinances. The ultra low rate environment is being driven by the uncertainty of the whole European situation, where a number of banks and countries are teetering on default,

coupled with a very slow growing U.S. economy and a job market that is barely maintaining positive momentum now. Because of this uncertainly and a slowdown in economies in China and Asia, people are seeking a safe haven for their funds and are driving the U.S. Treasury to record lows. In fact, it appears if you add back inflation, people are actually accepting negative returns on their U.S. Treasury bond investments as they are more concerned about a return of their investment than a return on their investment. So now is the perfect time to look at refinancing or purchasing because of the low rates, and two, because of the number of refinancing programs now available that focus on allowing people to refinance homes, even if their value has declined.

Highlands Ranch company made illegal shipment to Iran By Ryan Boldrey

rboldrey@ourcoloradonews.com Former South Metro Denver Chamber of Commerce Chairman Rick Jory got caught in a frustrating quagmire with the U.S. Treasury Department, which earlier this year collected a $126,000 fine from Highlands Ranchbased Sandhill Scientific Inc. for illegally exporting goods to Iran and for not immediately turning over documentation. Jory, the CEO of the Highlands Ranch medical-equipment manufacturer since 1994, describes a transaction that took place without his knowledge in 2007, and says he had no idea what the federal government was even investigating at first. The incident, detailed in government documents just released under a Freedom of Information Act request, concerns a $6,700 sale of disposable catheters that went through Dubai, United Arab Emirates, on its way to Iran. Nothing was shipped directly from Sandhill to Iran, one of four countries considered to be a “state sponsor of terrorism” by the U.S. government, which bars transactions without consent from the Office of Foreign Assets Control. When the investigation began in April 2008, the employee who handled

Sandhill’s international accounts at the time of the incident was no longer employed by the company, leaving Jory in a bind. “At that time we did not have (the employee’s) emails or access to (the employee’s) computer,” said Jory, who agreed to a settlement in April of this year. “I was sitting here blind, trying to comply with the government’s informational request, but they weren’t being specific about what they were looking for.” According to Jory, after numerous communications with OFAC, once he was finally informed of precisely what they were seeking, he was able to retrieve the information within minutes and he presented the information to them. “If I was trying to do something devious, I would be the first person to say, ‘Oh, I got caught, and I have to pay a penalty,’ ” Jory said. “In this case, I was blindsided and I felt that (OFAC) was trying to set me up by not telling me what they were looking for in the first place. Once I saw the invoice and the records, I totally admit we had shipped something

that ended up in Iran.” After that admission occurred, it was about a year before OFAC served Jory with papers. In those papers, OFAC accused him of being “directly involved in the willful and reckless conduct that led to the apparent violation,” of “concealing its activities by removing identifying information associated with Iran from its shipment” and “not cooperating with OFAC’s investigation.” “The problem in all this,” Jory said, “is they acted like I was stonewalling or withholding information, and No. 1, that’s not me, No. 2, there’s just no reason to do that. Had (OFAC) come out up front and said, ‘Hey, Mr. Jory, we have records that state on such and such date you shipped such and such to a guy in Dubai,’ I could have gotten him that information in a matter of minutes, but they never did that.” Jory’s biggest complaint in the settlement was the “character attacks,” but he said he did not fight OFAC on it because, according to his attorney, he was not going to get a better deal than what was offered.

Students take on comedy about 9/11 Legend High School senior directs ‘Recent Tragic Events’ By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com

A humorous play about 9/11 is delicate territory for the most seasoned actors, a mercurial leap for high school students. But a small group of Legend High School students will make that jump later this month during a three-night run of “Recent Tragic Events.” Senior Jessica Morris pitched the play to theater director Julie Lachance, convincing her that students could present it with the delicate mix of respect and humor it requires. Morris directs the student-led performance, the first of its kind at the Parker school. “I wanted to do something that was entertaining, but also had an important message,” said Morris, who’s acted and helped with theater productions throughout her high school career. “I think that people far too often shy away from things like this because they think it’s inappropriate or not respectful to talk about. But I think it’s an important part of our history.” The play first premiered in Washington, D.C., in 2002, and then was produced Off-Broadway. The action starts in Minnesota the day after the terrorist attacks, and follows a young woman whose New York City sister is missing as she goes on a blind date. A crazy neighbor and an actor playing author Joyce Carol Oates add layers to the cast and complication to the plot. “It has philosophical overtones near the end and kind of leaves you questioning what you believe,” Lachance said. If anyone could handle such a show, Lachance said Morris is the person. “Often, kids lean toward overacting,” she said. “Jessie has worked with the kids to get them to really listen to each other and find the truth of the play, which I think is really important in order for the audience to connect with these characters.” Even though she was only 6 in 2001, Morris draws on her own experience of 9/11 to help her direct. “My mother was standing in front of the TV and she was crying,” she said. “At 6, it’s hard to see your parents in an emotional state because they’re your rock. As I’m older and think about it today, I realize how many people must have been crying all over the world.” She’s also following the playwright’s lead. “The humor of the show is never about the incident,” she said. “It’s about the people. Even though this huge travesty has happened to us, we are still human beings, and we will move on. People coming together at a time when it was most important — that’s really the message of the show.” “Recent Tragic Events” will be presented at 7 p.m. Oct. 25, 26 and 27 at Legend High School, 22219 Hilltop Road, Parker. Tickets are $5 for students and $8 for adults. For more information, visit www.legendtheatre.org.

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com Most of Rock Canyon High School’s active thespian competitors will perform in the school’s upcoming student-directed and produced “Splendor in the Grass,” adapted by Willian Inge from the 1950s film. It plays at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 25 and 26 at RCHS, 5810 McArthur Ranch Road, Highlands Ranch. Admission is free. Director of the advanced drama class play is Syd Charvat, who was a state thespian national qualifier in 2011 and just played Helsa in “Musical Comedy Murders of 1940.” Charvat said “one of the beautiful and artistic aspects of Inge’s piece is that it describes life and love as it really is; in reality, love is hard, love is painful and love is deceiving. But in the end, we always find our way and true love

is never far behind.” Some parts are double cast and most have an understudy, so a large class in involved in the production. Dramatists Play Service describes it as “an honest and affecting story of teenage love … an ill-fated high school romance which could happen anywhere, at any time and to any young people whose feelings toward each other have deepened into love.” Set in the 1920s and 1930s with the Depression affecting lives. Also on the calendar, according to drama teacher Cindy Baker: “A Roomful of Roses,” the Mainstage extra-curricular play for the winter, at 7 p.m. Nov. 15-17. The cast includes Max Pederson, Belle Deibel, Lauren Wearsch, Logan Schurr, Jake Smith and Lela Smith. It is about the aftermath of a bitter divorce and barriers built between parents and children. Tickets: $8/$6.

Arapahoe Community College’s Colorado Gallery of the Arts hosts an exhibit that intends to stimulate an emotional response from its viewers: “Speak Peace: American Voices Respond to Vietnamese Children’s Paintings.” It will open from 5-7 p.m. Oct. 19 with a public reception that features music, refreshments and dramatic readings of the exhibit’s poems by members of the ACC Creative Writing faculty, various Colorado poets and Eliot Wilson. Brightly colored paintings are framed with poems that respond to them. Poems were written by young children, teens, college students and older amateur and professional poets — and they range in skill and mood as the paintings do. The exhibit was organized by the Wick Poetry Center at Kent State University, where four people were killed 42 years ago in and near a student protest of the Vietnam War. Nicole Robinson, program and outreach coordinator for the Wick Poetry Center, will speak about the inception and growth of the exhibit. Paintings came from the War Remnants Museum in Ho Chi Minh City, following a suggestion from Dr. Edward Tick, founder of Soldier’s Heart, a veterans’ return and healing organization, who started conversations in summer 2009 with Kent State’s Anderson Turner. In January 2010, the Wick Poetry Center put 70 digital images online, inviting poetry in response. It received more than 1,200 submissions from across the nation — from in-

Is Boulder crying in its beer? While the burg may have thought it would get the only Trader Joe’s in Colorado with a liquor license, Denver snagged that shot. When both stores open next year, Denver customers will be able to buy liquor and check out in an attached area of the store. The grocery and liquor sections will share a common entrance, but liquor sales must be completed separately. How did Denver grab the liquor biz from Boulder? “We’re a better and bigger market so they can sell more (liquor) here,” said a source close to the deal. “Our process (to obtain a liquor license) is faster and cleaner, and Boulder blabbed about getting a liquor store. Denver kept its mouth shut.” The initial hearing — the first step in the liquor license process — will be held at 9 a.m. Oct. 26. The store will have to jump through a few city-required hoops before getting the final sign-off. Both Boulder and Denver Trader Joe’s stores are expected to open around the same time next year.

“Together Protect Peace” is by Ta Thank Khue, age 15. dividuals and classes who wrote a joint piece. “This is a place where art and artists have played in all cultures throughout time,” wrote David Hassler, the poetry center’s director. Among the paintings: “Together Protect Peace” by 15-year-old Ta Thauk Khue: four hands hover around a delicate paper crane, a peace symbol. Heidi Hart, a Quaker, teacher and poet wrote “Reverse Folds”: “My son teaches me to fold a paper crane, Crease here, undo … How long To wait for peace, for grief’s slow work to mold Into a shape the palm can hold, as delicate As wings? My son folds by memory. `I made five today,’ he says, `have to be patient ….’” “Peace” shows cats napping on a tank in a pastoral setting. It’s a watercolor by 7-year-old Chau Thien An, which drew

Others we noted were “A Friendship World” by Nguyen Duc Danh, age 13, and “Peaceful Country” by Huznh Vu Thuy Duong, age 15, which depicts a water buffalo lying in a green setting, with a black and white bird on its back. The exhibit runs through Nov. 13 and is open noon-5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays; until 7 p.m. on Tuesdays. Admission is free.

The cast of “Bloody, Bloody Andrew Jackson,” playing at the Aurora Fox Studio. Courtesy photo by Matt Trappe ing, it offers a fast-paced , thoroughly entertaining evening — even if there are lines that may make one blanch. Alex Timbers wrote the book. “Irreverent and raucous” was the response of a woman in the audience when asked to define the show. That pretty

much hits the nail on the head. Jackson, our seventh president, was a lawyer, politician, judge, landowner and merchant. He has mixed reviews from historians: strong on individual liberty, man of the people, defeated the British in New Orleans, took 20 million acres of

land in Georgia and Alabama, was responsible for the death of thousands of Native Americans (the Trail of Tears). The Democratic and Republican parties split over his election, with John C. Calhoun as his vice president in 1828. While the cast sings one after another musical numbers, starting with “Populism, Yea Yea!” his story is actually told, although one realizes it more in reflection than at the time. Some of his statements are tough to hear, but the upbeat mood carries throughout, including sassy interaction with the audience. Dicke, who plays the lead, as well as directing and designing the set, is riveting as he rams his way through our history. A distinctly different lesson than the one I, at least, learned in school! The small theater gives the audience an upclose and personal connection with the cast — different from the usual experience with a musical. But this one is unique all around and the close quarters work well. The lighting design by Jen Orf is especially effective — as is the sound. Teens would love it, I’d guess. (Leave the shorter family members at home.)

Cherokee Ranch & Castle Hosts Gothic Author As the days grow shorter, leaves turn crimson and gold, and a chilling wind begins to blow, thoughts more easily turn to the darker side of life. Stories of morbid possibilities and gruesome happenings become more common place at this time of year. Such was the case at the Cherokee Ranch and Castle last week as the organization hosted another performance in its Meet the Author series. Edgar Allan Poe – Dark Whispers of Genius was vividly portrayed by actor David Skipper in period costume. Armed with an encyclopedic knowledge of the gothic author and an appropriately baleful voice, the actor switched between reciting some of Poe’s lesser-known works and thoughtful musings that the author may have had. He began with a reading of the poem Ulalume – one of three poems written as his beloved wife, Virginia, slowly succumbed to consumption, now known as tuberculosis. “The skies they were ashen and sober; The leaves they were crisped and sere— The leaves they were withering and sere; It was night in the lonesome October Of my most immemorial year: It was hard by the dim lake of Auber, In the misty mid region of Weir— It was down by the dank tarn of Auber, In the ghoul-haunted woodland of Weir… Anecdotes about his troubled life “…the dead rest only as long as we remember…”, literary influences that formed him as a writer, poet and critic “…in many literary circles I am known as the Tomahawk Man because of my rather scathing reviews of supposed fellow authors work such as that lick-spickled Longfellow who couldn’t put a sentence together if he had a bag of words,” and the creative writing process “My writing comes from my mind and my spirit, my poetry comes from my heart...” were fodder for the performance. These themes were explored in between readings of both poetry and prose after which questions for the author were taken while still in character. “No sir, I never took drugs. I do, however, suffer from— inebriation from time to time—but have sworn off and am now a temperate man.” After the in-character performance, Skipper took further questions from the audience regarding insights into Poe’s life as well as his death, which is still shrouded in mystery. The actor’s knowledge of Poe and insights into his psyche were as much intriguing as they were enlightening. The fact that the Castle’s last owner, Tweet Kimball was a direct descendant of Poe’s surrogate family (the Allan family) further added to the macabre atmosphere. As is tradition, tours of the citadel were given by foundation docents prior to the performance. Tours are not only educational, but thoroughly enjoyable as history was woven with anecdotes of the former owners giving glimpses into their personal lives. The furnishings, much of which dates back to the 16th & 17th centuries, and the art collection are remarkable especially when paired with the descriptive narrative of the guides. The tours alone are worth the price of admission. Also included was an incredible buffet dinner enjoyed before the performance with a luscious desert and coffee service after capping off the evening’s experience. The Authors Series continues with Julie Pech - The Chocolate Therapist and A Holiday Dinner with Charles Dickens in December. The Cherokee Ranch & Castle Foundation operates the facility hosting a variety of other activities including guided tours, afternoon teas, educational opportunities and special events & weddings. The Foundation also oversees a heard of prize winning Santa Gertrudis on

DENVER — To claim the Class 5A boys tennis No. 1 - singles state championship n for a second consecutive year, e Hayden Sabatka knew what - he had to do. e The Highlands Ranch senior simply had to play his game. It took until midway g through the first set tie-breaker in the No. 1 singles final , Oct. 13 at Gates Tennis Center for Sabatka to put all the working pieces of his game together against Grand Junction’s Spencer Weinberg, but once he did, the match was his. Down 5-3 in the tie-break, Sabatka won the next four points to take the opening set, 7-6, then controlled the second set from the outset and won that 6-3 to clinch his second state championship on a cold and dreary morning. “It was a fight in the first set,” Sabatka said. “I wasn’t as aggressive as I needed to be. In the tie-break, things started to change and I could feel myself getting back to playing my style of tennis. In the second set, I just started to rip it.” Sabatka, for those that haven’t had the pleasure of watching him play tennis, hits without question the hardest serves and groundstrokes out of anyone else in the state. That hard-hitting style is in stark contrast to Weinberg, the 2010 champion, who utilizes his speed to track down whatever his opponent throws at him. It makes for compelling tennis when the two take to the court to face one another. “He’s a great player,” Sabatka said of Weinberg. In No. 3 singles action, Mountain Vista’s Thomas Van De Pas took third, just ahead of Ryker Brown of Highlands Ranch, who finished fourth. Mountain Vista’s No. 2 doubles team of Vamsi Sethilvel and Alex Boyarko also finished fourth.

Historic win for Cherry Creek Cherry Creek’s Connor McPherson knows Fairview’s Ignatius Castelino quite well. The two have run into each other at various United States Tennis Association tournaments, not to mention competing for their respective schools. In the 2012 season, McPherson had come up short against Castelino in their two prior meetings, but the Cherry Creek junior had a big shot at redemption in the

Photo by Courtney Kuhlen | ckuhlen@ourcoloradonews.com No. 2 singles final of the Class 5A boys tennis state tournament on Oct. 13 at Gates Tennis Center. With steady groundstrokes and quick footwork, McPherson was able to grind out a 6-3, 6-2 victory that not only earned him his first victory over Castelino, but a state championship as well. “It feels amazing,” McPherson said. “This is my third title and I really had to work hard for it because Ignatius is a great player. I felt on I was really on my game (Oct. 13) and played really consistent.” McPherson’s win over Castelino was a pivotal victory for Cherry Creek, which entered the final day of the tournament just six points ahead of Fairview in the race for the team title. The Bruins would win three out of the four headto-head matchups against the Knights and that clinched the team’s 38th state championship in the last 41 years. The state championship also proved to be the 200th in Cherry Creek history. “Honestly, the team title means more than the individual title,” McPherson said. “Before the finals we all talked about trying to win those matches against Fairview be-

Grizzlies blaze past Douglas CountyG Second-quarter outburst helps ThunderRidge top Huskies By Jim Benton

jbenton@ourcoloradonews.com HIGHLANDS RANCH - ThunderRidge linebacker Sam Pauling claimed the Grizzlies learned a lot about intensity last Thursday night at Shea Stadium. ThunderRidge, No. 3 in the Class 5A rankings, came out flat and wound up in a wild scoring battle with Douglas County before pulling out a 63-40 Continental League victory over the Huskies. The win improved the Grizzlies to 3-00 in the league and 5-1-0 overall and set the stage for tonight’s showdown with Chaparral at Shea Stadium. “It’ll be a real good game,” Pauling said. “We have to come out with more intensity. We can’t come out flat like we did against Douglas County. We have to be intense all the time.” ThunderRidge, which jumped up to No. 1 in the rankings for the first time as a 5A team after the win, might have been guilty of looking ahead and fell behind 17-0 to the Huskies in the first quarter. The Grizzlies roared back and if you like offense, this was an entertaining game. The teams combined for 103 points and 1,066 yards in total offense in the contest that featured a 45-point second quarter.

The second quarter was one to remember unless you were a defensive coach. There were touchdowns on back-toback offensive plays with Douglas County’s Trey Smith scoring on a 63-yard run when the Huskies line opened a big hole and Smith used his speed and a nice cut back to reach the end zone. But, ThunderRidge’s Jake Hand retaliated with a 53-yard TD run around right end on the Grizzlies first snap on the next possession. Douglas County was penalized on Mark Hopper’s extra point kick after Hand’s TD with the yardage marked off on the kickoff. Then, ThunderRidge recovered an on sides kick and scored on three plays which results in a combined 21 points being scored in 46 seconds. There were 38 points scored in the final 5:48 of the first half that ended with Douglas County nursing a 34-28 lead. ThunderRidge took control in the second half and scored twice in 57 seconds to take a 42-40 lead with 6:40 still to play in the third quarter. “We fell behind 17-0 and could have folded the tents,” said ThunderRidge coach Joe Johnson. “I’m proud of the way the kids came back.” Douglas County had 457 yards of total offense but ThunderRidge’s defense stepped up and limited the Huskies to 102 yards in the second half. “At halftime, we just talked to each other and said we had to stop them from scoring,” Pauling said .”We came out with

Sports roundup: Mountain Vista dominates league Golden Eagles cross country sweeps Continental By Jim Benton

jbenton@ourcoloradonews.com HIGHLANDS RANCH - Anybody that questions the depth of the Mountain Vista cross country program needs to check the results of last Thursday’s Continental League championships. Mountain Vista was first in all six races (boys and girls varsity, junior varsity and open) in the meet that was held at Rock Canyon High School. Senior Karlee Schwartzkopf of Mountain Vista finished first in the varsity girls race that saw five Golden Eagles cross the finish line among the top nine runners. Schwartzkopf was timed in 18:56 and the Golden Eagles had 23 points in the team race, 57 markers ahead of second-place ThunderRidge. “I felt real comfortable,” said Schwartzkopf. “When you cross the finish line, it’s like the best feeling in the world. There’s no greater feeling. It was our goal to sweep the whole meet.” Connor Weaver was third in 16:22 to lead the Mountain Vista varsity boys to the team title with 43 points. Ponderosa’s Eli Hemming captured individual honors with an eight second victory with a time of 16:10. Hemming is an elite triathlete who runs in the morning before school, either swims or bikes during his lunch hour and then goes to cross country practice in the afternoon. “I’m a triathlete and really train for that,” said Hemming. “Yeah, the races get bigger and bigger. The competition will get better.” Mountain Vista will compete in the Class 5A Region 1 state cross country regional meet this afternoon at Fountain Fort Carson. Hemming will be running in the Class 4A Region 5 state qualifying regional meet at Clement Park today. MOUNTAIN VISTA IN HUNT - Mountain Vista remained in the Continental League football title hunt with a 40-17 triumph over Highlands Ranch.

The Golden Eagles (3-4-0 overall) improved to 2-10 in the league and are tied for second with Chaparral. Mountain Visa has games remaining at Regis and against first-place ThunderRidge. Quarterback Ryan Rubley threw three touchdown passes, two of them to Matt Yamane, and running back Tanner Smith rushed for 177 yards and two scores to pace the Golden Eagles, who were coming off an upset win over previously No. 1-ranked Chaparral. ROCK CANYON ROLLS - Eric Williams scored three touchdowns to help Rock Canyon defeat winless Palmer, 41-14, in a Pioneer League game in Colorado Springs. Williams rushed for 141 yards and two scores on 20 carries and caught two passes for 32 yards and a touchdown. Quarterback Ryan Hommel completed eight of 14 passes for 114 yards for the Jaguars (3-2-0, 5-2-0). LEGEND SECOND - Legend notched a 27-17 Pioneer League win over Heritage at Littleton Public Schools Stadium to move into a second place tie with Castle View. The Titans are 3-1-0 in league play and 4-3-0 overall. Castle View is also 3-1-0 in league play and both teams trail Fountain Fort Carson which owns wins over the Titans and Sabercats. Legend rushed for 320 yards against Heritage with Connor Orgill gaining 129 yards on only five carries and Nicholas Evdos picking up 115 yards on 15 carries. Each ran for a touchdown while quarterback Peyton Remy completed 13 of 23 passes with one interception for 162 yards and a TD. CASTLE VIEW COMES UP SHORT - Third-ranked Fountain Fort Carson took a 28-0 lead into the fourth quarter enroute to a 35-15 Pioneer League triumph over Castle View, which saw its overall record slip to 3-4-0. PONDEROSA STILL UNBEATEN - Third ranked Ponderosa escaped with a 3-0 Pikes Peak League win over homestanding Falcon as the Mustangs remained unbeaten at 4-0-0 and 7-0-0 overall. The Mustangs came into the game averaging 39 points per game but could only manage a 22-yard field goal from Colton Carr with 1:12 to play in the first half. Falcon missed a 31-yard field goal with 18 seconds remaining which could have sent the game into overtime. LUTHERAN WINS BIG - Lutheran grabbed a 48-6

Golden Eagles streak into state tourney

Applehans overpowering in Region 2 action

By Jim Benton

jbenton@ourcoloradonews.com

HIGHLANDS RANCH - Mountain Vista will be riding the right arm of senior Jesse Applehans into the Class 5A state softball tournament this weekend. Applehans was close to perfect, throwing a no-hitter in a 3-0 victory over Poudre on a chilly day at Mountain Vista High School. She had a perfect game until an error on a routine ground ball with two outs in the seventh inning forced her to settle for her second no-hitter of the season. In the Region 2 championship game, Applehans hurled a four-hitter in a 4-1 triumph over Castle View which sent the Golden Eagles into the state tournament for the ninth consecutive season. The state tournament begins Friday at the Aurora Sports Park and Mountain Vista comes into the two-day event after winning nine of its past 10 games. “That’s always our goal to try to get to state,” Mountain Vista coach Bret Grammerstorf said. “We’re very excited about getting there. It’s one of those things. You never know. “You can run into a hot team and right now our pitcher is about as hot as anybody in the state. I like where we are at. She was pretty amazing in the regionals. She was dynamite from the first pitch to the last. She was one pitch away from a perfect game in the first game and threw a no-hitter. She gave up four hits in the second game. That’s a pretty dang good day. I’ll take that anytime.” Applehans struck out 10 Poudre batters and fanned five in the title game against Castle View. “I felt really good,” said Applehans. “Our defense was really on and they were all playing behind me. We all brought our best. We knew these would be tough games but we stepped up. I was just trying to get as much movement as I could on my pitches. “It feels amazing. We’ve had an up and down season but I’m so happy to go to state.” In the second game, Applehans showed an ability to dodge trouble. The game was scoreless in the top of the fourth when Castle View’s Sarah Good singled to lead off the inning and moved to third on an errant throw by the catcher on a pickoff attempt. But, Applehans retired the next three batters on a popup and two strikeouts. The final strikeout came against power-hitting Savannah Heebner, who had homered in Castle View’s 5-1 opening win over Fountain Fort Carson. “When I went out to the mound, I said it’s not going to be a strike and we’re not going to let her (Heebner) beat us,” Grammerstorf explained. “She got a couple pitches on the outside corner and then we went after her. It worked out great. That was the turning point for us. “That’s what Jesse has been very good at this year, holding opponents to the lease amount of runs they can get.” Mountain Vista was very good at getting key hits in both games.

Sydney Cohen, Rachel Johnson and Jacque Rayment had run batted in hits against Poudre and the Golden Eagles exploded for four runs in the bottom of the fifth against Castle View with one run scoring on a wild pitch, Cohen smashing a two-run triple and Dani Shearon driving in Cohen with a single. Two teams from each of the eight regional tournaments advanced to the state tournament. Castle View failed to advance as Fountain Fort Carson defeated the Sabercats, 7-5, in nine innings in game postponed until last Sunday because of rain. However, there will be four other Continental League teams besides Mountain Vista in the state tournaments League champion Rock Canyon, who has been to the state semifinals twice and the finals once over the past three season, beat Pine Creek 11-1 and Legend 6-0 in the Region 4 tournament in Castle Rock. Alli McCloskey went 5-for-7 with six RBI in the two games and Zayne Blumberg was 5-for-8 with three RBI in the two victories. Lauren Paige twirled a no-hitter in the win over Legend. The Titans rebounded to make the state tournament bracket with a 12-7 win over Fruita Monument In the final two games against Fruita. Madi Hunter went 5-for7 and was the winning pitcher in the second contest against the Wildcats. Douglas County won Region 7 tournament in Fort Collins with a 7-0 victory over Pomona and a 5-3 win

over Fossil Ridge. Corell Breanna was the winning pitcher in both games while Laramie Rewerts was 4-fopr-8 with 3RBI in the pair of victories and Morgan Ginger went 4-for-7. Ponderosa will be playing in the Class 4A state tournament despite losing 4-3 to Erie in the Region 7 tournament in Erie. The Mustangs beat Pueblo Central 8-0 to advance to the finals against Erie and then beat the Wildcats 9-1 in the game to determine which team would gain a state tournament berth. Ally Power pitched a one-hit shutout with 16 strikeouts in the first game against Pueblo Central and allowed only two hits in the second game against the Wildcats. Power contributed three hits to Ponderosa’s 14-hit attack in the second game against Pueblo Central and Erin Fincher went 4-for-4. State tournament pairings were announced Monday. Rock Canyon (17-4) is seeded sixth and will face No. 11 Ralston Valley at 12:15 p.m. Friday. The Jaguars defeated Ralston Valley 7-5 in the second game of the season. Mountain Vista (15-6) is seeded seventh and will open against No. 10 Fossil Ridge. Legend (9-11) is the No. 15 seed and will play No. 2 Dakota Ridge. Both games are scheduled to start at 12:15 p.m. Douglas County (16-5) is the No. 8 seed and will play at 10 a.m. game against No. 9 Eaglecrest. In the Class 4A bracket, Ponderosa (14-8) is the No. 12 seed and draws No. 5 Frederick in a 10 a.m. game.

Wolverines ready for showdown with Grizzlies By Jim Benton

jbenton@ourcoloradonews.com PARKER - Quarterback Max Kuhns, who helped No. 4 Chaparral record a hard-fought 28-21 Continental League victory over Regis Jesuit last Friday at Sports Authority Stadium, is looking forward to what he anticipates will be a great game. Chaparral, 2-1-0 and 6-1-0 overall, plays top-ranked and league-leading ThunderRidge, 3-0-0 and 6-1-0, tonight at Shea Stadium in a game that could determine the league title. “We have a great opponent in ThunderRidge,” Kuhns said. “This is pretty much for the league title, I think. They’re a great team.

They’re No. 1 in the league right now and top five in the state so it’s going to be a drag out brawl. It’s going to be a great game.” The Wolverines notched an important victory over a formidable Regis team that held a 7-0 first quarter lead before the Wolverines mounted a 47-yard TD drive early in the second quarter. However, it was in the waining seconds before halftime that Chaparral turned the game around. Chaparral had six penalties, an intercepted pass, a botched snap on a field goal and a dropped TD pass but still managed to grab a 14-7 lead at intermission. After a missed field goal, Chaparral took over at its own 20-yard line with 37 seconds

left to play in the half and moved 80 yards in three plays to score and take the lead on the final play of the half. Kuhns threw two interceptions in the game but wound up connecting on 20 of 32 passes for 297 yards. None of his completions were bigger than the two on the 80-yard drive late in the second quarter. He ran for eight yards on the first play and then hooked up with Brandon Malone on a 43-yard completion near the sidelines that moved the ball to the Raiders’ 39-yard line. Kuhns then lofted a pass towards the end zone that 6-foot-4 senior tight end Mitch Parsons grabbed between two defenders. “Mitch went up and got the ball and luckily it was in the end zone,” Kuhns said.

More help for the economy There is still a lot of talk about the poor state of the economy four years after the recession. The Federal Reserve Board (FRB) initiated another round of easing last month called QE3, which stands for Quantitative Easing for the third time. The average consumer may not be familiar with what it means when the FRB cannot lower interest rates beyond zero but still needs to help boost the economy. QE3 is not the same as the first or second round of easing, which involved the purchase of U.S. Treasuries. It is not the same as Operation Twist, where the FRB lengthened the maturity of their bond purchases. This time the Fed is buying $40 billion per month in mortgage-backed securities “for as long as it is necessary”.¹ Previous versions of QE had specific limits to the amount of money that was going to be spent, whereas QE3 doesn’t. It is supposed to be ongoing until after

the economy and employment situation improve. One of the main concerns about any stimulus is: What are the consequences down the road? One is the massive expansion of the Federal Reserve’s balance sheet from around $900 billion in 2008 that could approach $3 trillion by 2013.² The next concern is how the stimulus may impact future inflation. Currently the Federal Reserve projects inflation of just 1.2 percent to 1.7 percent this year. But this doesn’t necessarily mean that inflation cannot rear its ugly head in the

future. The index, which tracks a basket of 24 commodities like oil and corn, has increased over 15 percent since 2010. Therefore, consumer: Beware and plan well for inflation even if the Consumer Price Index appears low. If you don’t plan for higher costs on necessities, such as food and energy, it could undermine your overall planning and saving. Savings are already jeopardized by the Fed’s pledge to keep its zero interest rate policy through 2015. While that might be good news for those refinancing debt, it is bad news for investors who depend on interest income. Some investors have shifted to higher-risk assets such as junk bonds and emerging market debt in search of higher yields. Investor: Beware. The risk potential of these investments is significant and you could experience dramatic price fluctuations and potential loss of principal.

Despite the impressive efforts of three rounds of stimulus, economic growth has not improved. Investors should plan on more slow growth with the potential of rising inflation in the future. Funding future goals is more important than ever. Have a strategy in place to help determine how much and where you should be taking risk in your investments. 1) FOMC minutes; 2) Excerpts from Investment Advisor Research 10.1.12 by Ron Delegge
