Charter school location approved Opponents worry about traffic, nearby sex offenders By Chris Michlewicz

Chaparral and later helped spread it to other schools in the Douglas County School District, created the exchange program eight years ago. The number eight is sacred in Chinese culture and Channell said the New Year celebration was meant, in part, to honor the significance of the milestone. “It’s their big holiday, just like our Christmas,” Channell said. “We put on a party, not only for the exchange students, but for the entire community.” The 24 Chinese students, who came with two teachers and an administrator from their 5,000-student school in Chengdu, have participated in Intensive English Lan-

A handful of roadblocks hasn’t slowed progress on American Academy’s expansion into Parker. After a three-week delay on a decision, Parker Town Council on Jan. 28 approved an amendment that will allow the construction of a K-8 school on property previously slated for an assisted-living facility known as the Mountain View Senior Center. With an ever-growing wait list, the public charter school announced in October that it had found the ideal site for a second Douglas County campus. School leaders celebrated the fact that the land was right next to Clarke Farms, a residential neighborhood filled with young families. Some homeowners, however, were not pleased with the plans to build American Academy on the west side of Motsenbocker Road, a mile south of Mainstreet. Twelve of them spoke out during a Parker Town Council meeting Jan. 7 in which the school’s officials asked town leaders to approve the zoning amendment. The opponents are worried about an increase in traffic on Mainstreet and Motsenbocker, and raised concerns about a Developmental Pathways center adjacent to the school site that houses three convicted sex offenders who are developmentally disabled. Mike Kaplan, an attorney representing Developmental Pathways, acknowledged the situation during the Jan. 28 meeting and said one of the sex offenders has a “predilection for pedophilia.” He said the issue has not yet been resolved, and urged council to delay its decision.

Chinese students get lesson in culture, fun Chaparral has New Year’s sendoff for young visitors By Chris Michlewicz

cmichlewicz@ourcoloradonews.com A partnership between Chaparral High School and its sister school in Chengdu, China, has fostered cultural understanding through education — and a little bit of fun. Parker families have hosted 24 Chinese exchange students for the last three weeks, showing them the mountains and introducing them to American delicacies and customs along the way. Dozens of Wolver-

ines even attended the Denver Nuggets basketball game against the Houston Rockets, a team that recently picked up AsianAmerican star Jeremy Lin. The exchange students formed a corridor that the teams ran through when they took the floor. Days before the exchange students’ Feb. 7 departure, their local peers said farewell in dramatic fashion with a Chinese New Year bash at the Parker Arts, Culture and Events Center. The ceremony, which celebrated the Year of the Snake, included martial arts demonstrations, Chinese cuisine, games and a boisterous performance by the Wu Lan Lion Dance Team. Catherine Channell, the teacher who started Chinese language instruction at

Homeless invited to ‘Come in from the Cold’ Douglas County survey doubles as outreach By Rhonda Moore

rmoore@ourcoloradonews.com Douglas County took advantage of Colorado’s Point in Time survey, counting the statewide homeless population, with a safe haven for at least one evening. The Douglas County Community of Care Network participated in the state’s yearly homeless head count by reaching out with free immunizations, bicycles, food, clothing, a hot meal and more. The event included nearly 30 service providers whose efforts serve the county’s homeless and at-risk communities throughout the year. The Jan. 29 event moved to the Lone Tree campus of the Jubilee Fellowship Church as a more central location for those facing transportation challenges, said Rand Clark, Douglas County community of care navigator. Clark worked with about 100 church

Provider Todd McPherson, back left, also got his glucose checked from student Lien Nguyen. Photo by Courtney Kuhlen volunteers and about 15 community volunteers who served a meal of chili with sides, drinks and treats for families and individuals invited to “Come in From the Cold.” Campus pastor Marcus Piller

was on hand working the volunteer network. “I’m all about opening the doors to reach out to those in need as well as providing them with an opportunity to get a leg up,” Piller said. “It’s really about

raising awareness and gives us a way to have our finger in the community we serve.” The homeless community included about 28 families who were provided free haircuts, medical checks, diapers and bags filled with food, personal hygiene products and makeup. Total individuals served: 56. “We wanted to include some fun things you can’t get on food stamps or at a food bank,” Clark said. “For the ladies it’s something to make a difference.” Natalie Ibarra, 28, of Castle Rock, attended with her two children and headed straight for the temporary salon in the church basement. It had been a while since Elijah, 8, and Mizhka, 3, had received a trim, Ibarra said. Ibarra is a single mom and 2003 graduate of Douglas County High School who in 2012 moved back home with her parents. “For the first time we’ve felt the recession,” she said. “I lost my job and I had to move back in. (This event) is amazing, it’s awesome.” The county’s “Come in From

the Cold” outreach doubled as the Point in Time survey of homelessness. The annual survey is required by the Department of Housing and Urban Development to track how residents in each community are assisted through federal grant programs, Clark said. The 2012 survey showed Douglas County had a homeless population between 156 and 164 people, while the Douglas County school district in the 2011-12 school year identified 764 students as homeless. Of those students, 242 identified general financial hardship as the primary reason for their homeless status.

February 8, 2013

We, the people, are in this together As President Obama’s words rang out from Capitol Hill into my family room, as the camera panned over the thousands bearing witness to his second inaugural address, I found myself moved. By the significance of the tradition, its symbolism and shout to the world that regardless of who was elected, this transition from one presidential term to another would be a peaceful one. By words that spoke of equality for all. And by faces that seemed at once jubilant and expectant. “We, the people …,” President Obama repeated throughout. “We, the people …” But as I watched and listened, enveloped in the moment’s oneness, a question slipped in: Do we all feel as if we are the people? Those three words have become a mantra of what America represents, taken from the document this country was built on: “We, the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.” It is a lofty ideal that at times has been shoved into the shadows by such abuses as slavery and inequality of rights because of gender, race and religion. That we have amended some of those wrongs is an inspiring tribute to our foundation. But we are, most definitely, a work still in progress. “‘We, the people’ is our vision for America,” says Amy Montague, a social studies teacher for 15 years whose passion for history lights her eyes and fills her voice. “‘We, the people’ is what we are always aspiring to be.” Empowered toward unity. Even when it is difficult to achieve. Stephanie Noll is a social worker for Mi

Casa Resource Center, which serves the underemployed and unemployed in the Denver area. She works daily with women and men struggling to overcome financial, educational and other challenges in their pursuit of stability. “When people don’t have access to be able to meet their basic needs,” she says, “they don’t feel included as the ‘we’ who are taken care of in society.” Something as simple as language can exclude people from the circle, says Alejandra Harguth, a naturalized U.S. citizen born in Mexico who works with immigrants in Littleton. “Just because you were born somewhere else doesn’t mean you are different from the person next to you” in terms of human value. Moe Keller, a Democrat who championed mental health, child care and developmentally disabled issues during her years in the Colorado House and Senate, believes that, overall, the country’s “general welfare” isn’t being promoted as the Constitution asks. “We need to invest and believe in ourselves. I don’t think we do that right now,” says Keller, who taught special education for 25 years and remains active in the mental health arena. “Even at the federal level, we don’t,” referring to the legislative fight over Hurricane Sandy disaster relief and other political challenges to civic and social programs. “I believe in economic patriotism,” she says. “We have an obligation and a duty to

pay taxes because democracy is not free. Taxes are not evil. They are what keeps us going as a country.” To Bob Beauprez, a buffalo rancher and former Republican congressman who ran unsuccessfully for governor in 2006, President Obama’s “we, the people” means “we, the government.” John F. Kennedy had it right, Beauprez says, when he proclaimed in his inaugural address, “‘Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country.’ It’s bigger than us. The cause is bigger than us.” But the elemental essence of “we, the people” as an instrument of cohesion and change gives us the tools — despite differing philosophical views on government — to work toward that dream of unity. The teacher, the social worker, the politician and the community activist see evidence of it every day. Steve Burkholder, a former mayor of Lakewood, talks about the sales tax increase of 2005 that led to the building of a new mall and increased revenue during tough financial times. The city asked its residents, “What type of city do you want?” Burkholder remembers. “We can give you this type of city at 2 percent sales tax or we can give you this type of city at 3 percent sales tax. This is your choice. We had this dialogue about it and we talked about it and we tore down their favorite mall …. The citizens were a part of it. That was ‘we, the people.’ ” He talks about the importance of establishing inclusivity across all areas, from ethnicity to gender to income level, and excitedly mentions an early intervention educational program that will soon begin in the city. “We have this opportunity to make a major difference.” That kind of empowerment of others, he says, is “we, the people.” Keller highlights community service

organizations such as Optimist, Rotary and Kiwanis, which regularly provide scholarships to young people for higher education. One, in particular, recognizes students who have stayed in school despite great adversity. “They want these people to be successful,” Keller says. “This is ‘we, the people.’ ” Beauprez, although saying he doesn’t agree with all its tenets, points to the Tea Party movement. “The people were saying loud and clear, ‘Something’s really screwed up here … and we have to get off our couches and do something about it,” he says. “That kind of citizen action … it’s an extremely healthy ‘we, the people’ kind of statement.” Noll, the social worker, isn’t sure those who are marginalized ever fully feel included in society as a whole. But the success of her program’s participants — representing such a broad diversity — gives her hope. “There is a sense of empowerment in that process,” she acknowledges. “People do regain a sense of belonging.” Amy Montague, the teacher, looks to history for reaffirmation. If it’s read just right, Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation can still move her to tears. The power of the words and the foresight and courage it took to write and deliver them take her back to the nation’s roots and remind her of its strength. The people. “People have to remember where we came from and that we can get through whatever is happening,” she says. “We can, as a people, make it.” Our founding fathers believed we could. I do, too. We just can’t ever forget the “we.” Ann Macari Healey’s column about people, places and issues of everyday life appears every other week.

Dems roll out gun-control package Opponents say liability plan equivalent of ban

aimed at creating strict financial liability for makers, sellers and owners of assault weapons. Senate President John Morse, D-Colorado Springs, who will sponsor the Assault Weapon Responsibility Act, said his bill will make assault weapons makers, sellers and owners “liable for 100 percent of the damage” caused by “military style” assault weapons that are used in the commission of crimes. “The sickness of violence is spreading through America like a plague,” Morse said. Morse insisted that the legislation would not constitute a ban on assault weapons, and that it would not impact handguns, bolt action rifles and shotguns. But Morse’s bill was met with ridicule by conservatives. “That’s a frightening prospect,” said Sen. Greg Brophy, R-Wray. “I can’t believe how extreme that is.” Brophy quipped that the ban is a “clever,” back-door way of banning assault weapons because it would create an environment where gun makers would stop manufacturing their products out of concern for being held financially liable, if those weapons get in the wrong hands. Brophy said that holding essentially every party associated with an assault weapon liable is akin to “holding Coors and 7-Eleven liable” when someone robs beer from a convenience store and then gets drunk and causes a drunken-driving accident. Dudley Brown, executive director of Rocky Mountain Gun Owners, said Morse’s bill is “a functional ban” on assault weapons. He also said that people who commit gun crimes “should be held accountable the same way” as

By Vic Vela

vvela@ourcoloradonews.com Democratic state lawmakers on Feb. 5 unveiled a gun-control legislative package, which in part calls for required background checks for all gun buyers and strict liability for owners and sellers of assault weapons. B u t the ideas a i m e d at curbReport ing gun v i o l e n c e, which were announced by leaders of the General Assembly’s controlling party during a morning press conference inside the state Capitol, were immediately met with stiff opposition by gun-rights advocates. Democratic leaders — who were joined at the event by people whose lives have been affected by gun violence — announced eight pieces of “gun safety” legislation, which they said is needed in the wake of shooting massacres that continue to make headlines around the country. “As a civilized society, we cannot stand back and wait for another Columbine, another Aurora,” said House Speaker Mark Ferrandino, D-Denver. Some of the efforts announced Tuesday came as no surprise — gun-control legislation has been high on the list of priorities for Democrats this session. But perhaps the bill that will cause the greatest amount of ire for Republicans and gun advocates is one

Capitol

Jane Dougherty, sister of Sandy Hook Elementary School psychologist Mary Sherlach, right, talks in the west foyer of the state Capitol during a press conference on a comprehensive gun safety plan on Feb. 5. Relatives of victims of the Aurora theater shootings last July, holding photos of their lost loved ones, stand behind Dougherty. Photo by Andy Carpenean people who commit crimes with knives or other types of weapons. The legislative package contains other types of gun control efforts. Rep. Rhonda Fields, D-Aurora — whose son was shot to death in 2005 before he was scheduled to testify in a murder trial — is sponsoring two bills that would require background checks for all gun buyers, as well as a ban on high-capacity magazines used in certain types of weapons. “They have no place in our communities and they have no place in our streets,” Fields said of ammunition-feeding devices that accept more than 10 rounds of bullets. Other Democratic bills would

address mental health issues; keep domestic violence offenders from possessing guns; require in-person training for those who seek concealed carry permits; and take other actions. Count Brophy and Brown among those who are staunchly opposed to all the efforts put forth by Democrats Tuesday. “None of these ideas that (Democrats) were talking about today will make anybody safer,” Brophy said. Brown said that he intends to pound the proverbial pavement in opposition to Democratic efforts’. “We’re going out in legislators’ districts … and tell gun owners, `This is what (lawmakers) are doing to your rights,’” he said.

It’s unknown at this time how many of the bills will end up being supported by the Democratic Party’s leader, Gov. John Hickenlooper, who did not attend the Feb. 5 event. Eric Brown, Hickenlooper’s spokesman, said in an emailed statement: “The governor supports universal background checks and is open to a discussion about magazine limits and other ideas designed to keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people.” As for Morse’s bill, the governor’s office intends “to carefully study the liability legislation proposed by Sen. Morse and appreciate his effort to put a creative idea on the table.” Hickenlooper was scheduled to meet with the president of the National Rifle Association Feb. 7, in a meeting that was set up prior to the lawmakers’ press conference. Democrats feel the public is on their side in this debate. Certainly, they have the support of at least a few people who lost loved ones in recent gun violence tragedies. One of them is Jane Dougherty, a Denver resident whose sister, Mary Sherlock, a psychologist at Connecticut’s Sandy Hook Elementary School, was gunned down during the mass shooting that occurred there in December. “She lost her life running toward a gunman, armed with an assault weapon, an AR-15,” Dougherty said at the press conference. “Assault weapons are weapons of war. They belong on the battlefield. They have no place in a home. “We must do better,” she continued. “We must make changes. We are here to tell our elected leaders: Enough!”

Police chase leads to statewide theft probe

FEBRUARY SPECIAL

Fraud investigation could reach nationwide By Rhonda Moore

rmoore@ourcoloradonews.com Parker police are investigating an identity-theft case that began with the vehicle pursuit of two women. The incident began around 6 a.m., Jan. 18, with an alert to be on the lookout for a Dodge truck stolen out of Castle Rock, said Parker Detective Penny VanDenBerg. Within minutes of the alert, officers spotted the Dodge being Garcia tailed by a Ford Expedition and launched a chase near Crowfoot Valley and Stroh roads. Officers called off the pursuit when the Ford crashed into an unattended parked car near Mainstreet and Dransfeldt. The driver of the Ford, Amber Garcia, 22, of Denver, attempted to escape on foot and was apprehended by police. Investigators later found the Ford was reported stolen out of Commerce City. The unidentified woman who was driving the Dodge eluded capture, VanDenBerg said. Aurora police found the Dodge about two-and-a-half hours later, abandoned in Aurora. A search warrant for the Ford led to the discovery of thousands of pieces of mail and financial documents, credit card information and prescription medications strewn on the floorboards, backseat and in backpacks. Investigators also found vehicle registrations and documents that indicated the suspects broke into cars throughout the metro area, VanDenBerg said. Personal information recovered points to victims from Castle Rock, Denver, Westminster, Aurora, Evans, Alamosa, Greeley, Colorado Springs and Villa Grove, VanDenBerg said. Police also found handwritten notes with credit card information for individuals from Kansas, Illinois and Iowa, she said. The scope of the suspected identity theft

ring could continue to grow as investigators sift through thousands of documents, VanDenBerg said. “I’ve never seen anything like this,” she said. “Unfortunately we deal with identity theft more frequently than not. But something that starts out with stolen vehicles and turns out to be this, there’s definitely more out there that we need to investigate.” VanDenBerg contacted individuals whose prescription medications were recovered and those who appear to be missing a substantial amount of mail. The investigation indicates the prescription medications were sent by mail, VanDenBerg said. The mail from Castle Rock was for residences on Wolfensberger Road and in The Meadows on Soaring Eagle Lane, Kellwood Drive, Faver Drive, Foothills Drive, Scarlet Oak Court and Broadview Place, VanDenBerg said. In Denver, mail was recovered for residences on Zuni, Halifax Court, Flamingo Way and King Street, she said. Garcia is in custody facing felony charges of aggravated motor vehicle theft, theft by receiving, vehicular eluding and conspiracy. Misdemeanor charges include reckless endangerment, reckless driving, obstructing a peace officer, striking an unattended vehicle and failure to report an accident. As of Feb. 1 she remained in custody in the Douglas County detention facility on $11,500 bond, said Cocha Heyden, Douglas County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman. Authorities continue to search for the second suspect, VanDenBerg said. “We probably have to get in touch with at least 50 potential victims,” she said. “We are just in the beginning stages of the investigation, there could definitely be more. The next step will be meeting with the U.S. postal inspector. The (alleged) mail theft makes this case a federal offense.” Anyone with information that could assist in the investigation can call VanDenBerg at 303-805-6560 or email her at pvandenberg@parkeronline.org.

Bill would get law out of bedroom Legislators target old statutes on adultery, immorality By Vic Vela

vvela@ourcoloradonews.com With apologies to Hank Williams Sr.: Your cheating heart may tell on you, but that shouldn’t result in troubles with the law, too. At least that’s what two Democratic legislators believe. Report A bill that would repeal a longstanding Colorado law that prohibits adultery — as well as repeal a separate law that makes it a crime to promote “sexual immorality” — was introduced in the state House of Representatives last week. “Adultery should be a matter between a person and their spouse,” said Rep. Daniel Kagan, D-Cherry Hills Village, the bill’s House sponsor. “It is wrong, in my view, to make it the state’s business to inquire into who I slept with last night.” Yes, it is against Colorado law to cheat on one’s spouse, and it’s been like that since the 1900s. To be sure, it is a toothless law, seeing as how there is no penalty associated with it. But a separate law that the bill aims to repeal, “promoting sexual immorality,”

Capitol

does carry with it a potential misdemeanor charge. An example of a violation of this law would be when a hotel worker rents a room to an unmarried couple, knowing that they’re going to use the room to have sex. “It has been prosecuted eleven times in the last three years,” Kagan said of the sexual immorality law. “This bill keeps the police out of our private business.” Kagan is sponsoring the bill with Sen. Pat Steadman, D-Denver. They are the same two lawmakers who unsuccessfully attempted to repeal the laws during a previous legislative session. The attempt to revive the bill is being panned by at least one Republican legislator. Rep. Libby Szabo of Arvada had some fun on Twitter, saying sarcastically that the bill is “another display of the (Colorado Democratic Party’s) focus on jobs and the economy.” Szabo elaborated on her tweet in an emailed statement to Colorado Community Media. “It just makes you wonder what the legislative priorities are of two senior members of the Democrat legislative caucus when they’re more interested in running legislation concerning sexual immorality while more than 200,000 Coloradans are without a job,” Szabo wrote. But Kagan insists that this bill “does not take away from our efforts to create jobs and strengthen the economy.” “We can walk and chew gum at the same time,” Kagan said.

Franktown-based grocer thrives in lean times C Leevers Supermarkets has 400 employees, 15 stores By Chris Michlewicz

cmichlewicz@ourcoloradonews.com An ability to adapt to emerging economic and demographic trends has kept a Douglas County-based company thriving for 75 years. Leevers Supermarkets, a family-run independent grocer headquartered in Franktown, has embraced numerous store formats and nearly as many names over the years: Leevers Super Value, County Market, Warehouse Foods, Colorado Ranch Market. Its latest incarnation — Save-A-Lot — could be the most promising. The no-frills franchises, which Leevers Supermarkets operates under a license agreement, are among the only “hard discount” food stores in Colorado, and their exponential growth in middle- to lowincome communities is a reflection of the tough economic times many families are experiencing. Save-A-Lot bills itself as “value-oriented” rather than service-focused, said John Leevers, president of the company. The stores don’t have a pharmacy or customer service counter, and shoppers must bag their own groceries. More budget-crunching consumers are willing to make the trade-off for prices that are an average of 40 percent below larger grocery chains such as King Soopers, he said.

Instead of managing 40,000 in-store products like its counterparts, Leevers Supermarkets keeps things simple with about 3,000 items at consistently low prices. The stores carry a limited assortment of each product, but by brokering deals with major suppliers, the Save-A-Lot chain is able to drive down prices. The bare-bones business model is clearly working. Leevers Supermarkets had six stores in 2008. On Feb. 20, it will open its 15th store, all of which are on the Front Range between Pueblo and Greeley. Last year, the company grew to 400 employees, and with four more stores planned in the next 18 months, the Leevers will hire another 100 people. Leevers Supermarkets is one of about 50 companies in Douglas County with 250 or more employees, said Becky Nelson, economic development specialist for the county. However, it does have one quality most of the other large employers can’t claim: it has been family run from the beginning. A tailored approach to running each individual store has endeared Save-A-Lot to its shoppers, many of whom live in Hispanic communities. Stores in those communities have different meat and produce departments, and Leevers Supermarkets buys products made in Mexico that Save-ALot does not carry. “Grandpa’s thing over the years was to really tweak the store to the neighborhood that we’re in and really serve that local customer in that neighborhood, and that’s why we get the different formats,” said company

The third-generation proprietors first began working at age 13 or 14, starting from the bottom.

New town finance director brings expertise Parker is financially strong, Warn says By Chris Michlewicz

cmichlewicz@ourcoloradonews.com When it comes to taxpayer money, hiring a manager with expertise in accounting, budgeting, financial forecasting and analysis is a must. And that’s just what the Town of Parker did. Don Warn, the town’s new finance director, is in the midst of a crash course in Parker’s fiscal history. He is reviewing everything from the annual snowplowing budget to past sales tax revenue figures to the certificates of participation used to fund the construction of the Parker Arts, Culture and Events Center and Parker Police Department headquarters. Fortunately, Warn is well-versed in the economic intricacies of a medium-sized

town. Most recently, he served as the assistant finance director for the City of Golden, and before that he worked as the finance director for Archuleta County. Warn is also the vice president of the Colorado Government Finance Officers Association. Warn As he looks into the many statistics, one thing has jumped out at Warn. “Parker is in a really good position. It’s very strong financially, there are a lot of reserves,” he said. “It has been managed really well over the years.” That’s good news for Parker taxpayers and a testament not only to town council’s avowed fiduciary responsibility, but also to Warn’s predecessor, Mike Farina, who accepted a position at Clifton Gunderson, a national firm that employs certified public

accountants and consultants. It also shows that Parker, with a higher-than-average household income, was slightly more resilient in the face of a sluggish economy. Parker fared particularly well during the recession when compared to other Colorado municipalities. The town was not subjected to the same level of staff cuts and furloughs, and its sales tax revenue remained “impressive,” Warn said. Town council recently had its annual strategic planning session and will soon have precise direction for its various department managers. Warn will be integral in crunching numbers and providing insightful feedback, and he says he is looking forward to contributing to the community. Town administrator Randy Young is among the officials who are glad to have Warn on board. “His extensive financial and leadership experience will help Parker meet both the current and long-term financial needs of our community,” Young said. Warn earned a bachelor’s degree in accounting and a master’s in public administration. He has more than 20 years of management experience in finance, administration and information technology.

Internal investigation leads to deputies’ departure Man facing trial raises claim of excessive force

eir By Rhonda Moore oto by rmoore@ourcoloradonews.com

Two Douglas County sheriff’s deputies fam-left the department amid an internal affairs entlyinvestigation into claims of excessive force. plan The claims were raised by Reese Slade, havean Elizabeth man convicted as a habitual suc-offender for a 2010 case that involved offiem-cer gunfire. Slade was shot in the head on Feb. 5, uilddo 83 y live y the

2010, while he was using his vehicle to advance on an officer who was trying to arrest him. Slade, who was treated for his injuries and eventually faced trial, was found guilty Jan. 28 of assault, attempted assault and menacing charges for his actions during the incident. In the days before his trial began, the sheriff’s office received notice that Slade claimed a backup officer used excessive force during the arrest. The sheriff’s office immediately launched an internal affairs investigation into the allegations, leading to the departure of two of the office’s long-term deputies, said Undersheriff Tony Spurlock.

Bill tackles mortgage confusion Measure garners no Republican support By Vic Vela

vvela@ourcoloradonews.com A Democratic state lawmaker is sponsoring a bill that he says will “keep homeowners in their Report homes,” but it’s one that has not garnered any support from Republicans thus far. House Bill 1017 would allow homeowners who have modified their mortgage interest rates to keep those same rates if their loans are transferred to another bank. The sponsor, Rep. Steve Lebsock, DThornton, said in a recent legislative committee hearing that banks sometimes do not properly communicate when a person is in the process of modifying a loan. When the loan transfer to another servicer occurs, homeowners end up receiving “a Dear John letter,” notifying them of the transfer. But, “in a minority of cases,” the loan

Capitol

ends up getting transferred without the new servicer even knowing that the loan has been modified. Therefore, the new bank refuses to honor the modified rate, leaving homeowners confused and without recourse, Lebsock said. “Essentially, the left hand doesn’t know what the right hand is doing,” Lebsock said. That happened to Daniel Graham of Aurora, who testified during a recent House Business, Labor, Economic and Workforce Committee hearing about his “nightmare” experience of getting caught between two banks and two separate mortgage rates. Graham said that a bank recently foreclosed on his home — one that had been in his family for 34 years — after it refused to honor a modification that he and a previous bank had agreed on. The bill is on its way to the Senate after it passed the House Jan. 29, with Democrats supporting it in a 37-28 party-line vote. Rep. Bob Gardner, R-Colorado Springs, said he voted against the bill in part because he “couldn’t get a straight answer as to how big of a problem this was.” Gardner said it is a “feel good” bill that doesn’t really do anything. “I’m not going to vote for it because it sounds like a nice thing to do,” Gardner said.

Man sentenced for Parker home scheme Staff report

Justin H. Knight, 36, of Littleton, was sentenced Feb. 1 by U.S. District Court Judge Robert E. Blackburn to serve five years’ probation, with the first 12 months in home detention, for shredding documents in an attempt to obstruct an investigation into a mortgage fraud scheme. Knight was charged on Nov. 14, 2011. He pleaded guilty to destruction of records on e Feb. 10, 2012, and was sentenced on Feb. 1. ne As part of the larger mortgage fraud scheme, or Peter V. Capra, Demetrious G. Gianopoulos rger and Brian Waring were charged in three re separate indictments, according to the U.S. Attorney’s office, FBI, Internal Revenue Service and U.S. Postal Inspector. Gianopoulos pleaded guilty to one count of money laundering on May 10, ms 2011, and was sentenced to serve five years n of probation. Waring pleaded guilty to one dlife count of conspiracy to commit mail fraud, outh wire fraud, and money laundering and is ets expected to be sentenced later this year. f the Capra was indicted on April 25, 2012, which ed to was then followed by a superseding indictment on May 23, 2012, alleging obstruction :30 of justice, mail fraud, wire fraud and money ns laundering. The Capra case is scheduled for ets trial Sept. 23, and if convicted, he could face a lengthy term in federal prison. According to court documents, between

Authority. He joins eight member municipal and county jurisdictions as a voting member on the board. Partridge, the commissioner representing District 2, was appointed by Douglas County commissioners as the 2013 board representative, replacing last year’s

about January 1, 2005, and July 31, 2008, Capra and others knowingly executed and attempted to execute a scheme to defraud mortgage lenders. The scheme allegedly was executed in connection with applications for residential mortgage loans and related documents associated with real estate purchases, including but not limited to properties in Parker. Capra was the president of Golden Design Group Inc., a company that built and sold houses in the Denver area. It allegedly was a part of the scheme to structure transactions involving GDG homes to allow buyers to receive substantial amounts of the lenders’ money at the time of closing without the knowledge of the lenders. Loan applications for the buyers were submitted through several different mortgage brokers, which allegedly included false information submitted in connection with the applications, including materially false and fraudulent representations about the buyers’ income, liabilities, source of down payment, and intent to occupy the properties as their primary residences. In the Knight case, a grand jury subpoena was served in 2007 on defendant Knight’s employer at the time, GDG. After a meeting with Capra, Knight and another employee of GDG began shredding documents responsive to the subpoena allegedly based on instructions received from Capra.

Detective Beth Ondrak reportedly lied to investigators and resigned on Dec. 5, 2012, before the conclusion of the internal investigation, Spurlock said. Ondrak had been with the sheriff’s office since 2006. Deputy Gerritt Kaufman refused to cooperate with the investigation and on Dec. 17, 2012, was terminated from his position, Spurlock said. Kaufman was a K-9 officer who had been with the sheriff’s office since 2002. “The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office doesn’t tolerate untruthfulness,” Spurlock said. “You are required to cooperate with an internal investigation. (Kaufman) chose not to do so and was terminated.”

Slade claimed an officer kicked him during the 2010 arrest. The internal affairs investigation disclosed Kaufman used his foot to gain control and hold Slade to the ground, Spurlock said. The failure to report the incident at the time of the arrest was a violation of a Colorado law that requires report of excessive force within 10 days, Spurlock said. “We will not tolerate employees that lie or do not cooperate with an investigation,” he said. “We’re disappointed in our officers, they discredited the entire department. We pride ourselves on providing the best possible officers and service to the community and these two officers didn’t do that.”

OPINIONS / YOURS AND OURS

Let’s pass on another round of drinking bill The “drinking with Dad” bill that was killed in committee last week made for lively conversation around water coolers and dinner tables. We don’t mind that it failed — we are gripped by so many other matters at the Statehouse — but we stop short of calling the bill ridiculous. The failed notion — sponsored by state Sen. Greg Brophy — would have allowed parents to share alcoholic drinks with their 18-to-20-year-old children at restaurants or bars, ideally preparing them for the responsibilities of becoming 21. While it was pointed out several other states allow the practice, the committee gave little ground and defeated the measure 4-1. We agree with an oft-mentioned counterpoint that restaurant servers would face the onus of verifying parents and children before serving the 18-to-20-year-olds. The

OUR VIEW extra duty could put the servers in a tough spot as noted by state Sen. Evie Hudak, DWestminster. Maybe it would be a big pain or maybe not, but for now we agree with keeping a clean line of law in the public arena concerning the drinking age of 21. And we side with those who say it’s enough that parents have the legal opportunity to serve and teach their children about alcohol at home. Home is an excellent place to cover alcohol and responsible drinking. Further, it’s a fine place to learn how to prepare for the public arena with good skills in assigning designated drivers,

Bright idea: Start hoarding 60s It is time to start hoarding 60-watt light bulbs just like Twinkies. After Jan. 1, 2014, it will be illegal to sell them. But presumably you will still be able to buy an assault rifle. Say what? Incandescent light bulbs are being phased out. We’ve already said goodbye to 100-watt and 75-watt bulbs. Did you know that? It’s illegal to manufacture or import them, but they can still be sold until they are all gone. And don’t worry, the Light Bulb Constables are not going to break down your door. I don’t think the disappearance of incandescent bulbs will affect people the way the disappearance of Twinkies did. It’s hard to get too sentimental about light bulbs. I didn’t suffer for very long when they stopped making cassettes either. The newer helical, integrated, compact fluorescent lamp (CFL) is niftier looking, even though it does have more surfaces for dust. I’ve never been very good at dusting my light bulbs. Now I will be even worse at it. I need someone to shed some light on this: “CFLs radiate a spectral power distribution that is different from that of incandescent lamps. Improved phosphor formulations have improved the perceived colour of the light emitted by CFLs, such that some sources rate the best ‘soft white’ CFLs as subjectively similar in colour to standard incandescent lamps.” Right. I guess we can’t go back again. But we can go back to vinyl. You can still buy record players and you can still buy vinyl records. Some people swear by the quality of vinyl over CDs. I gave all of mine to my friend Greg. He treats them with a lot of respect. Records used to come in big paper sleeves. Paper is a wood-based product, and paper can be abrasive. Vinyl collectors often swap out the paper sleeves for something more archival. Are we going to have light bulb pirates? Music is pretty easy to pirate, but it might be quite a chore to pirate 60-watt light bulbs. Where are you going to do it? I think once they’re all gone, they’re all gone.

Are there songs about light bulbs? Or poems? Yes. I found both. But none of them is very memorable. Have you ever turned on a light and had it light for an instant and then burn out? Right then it’s kind of poetic. A final flare. We have the same thing prolonged in another way every autumn, when a green leaf turns yellow and orange, and then falls brown. I am having a hard time getting too nostalgic about this. Most of my incandescent bulbs aren’t bare, so I don’t see them, just their benefits. I didn’t get very nostalgic about Twinkies either. They are nasty things to begin with. Vulgar little sponges filled with who-knowswhat? Just don’t touch my Red Vines. After Jan. 1, 2014, those born will some day have to be told about light bulbs just like my parents had to tell me about tin toys and candlestick telephones. Technology moves things in and moves things out very fast these days. The humble light bulb had a good, long lifetime. Edison filed for the patent in 1879, and it was granted on Jan. 27, 1880. I invented something last summer and pitched it to an outfit that takes an idea and develops it on behalf of the inventor. For an arm and a leg. I had neither. They promised not to manufacture it. But I have a hunch I will see my bright idea at Home Depot some day. Craig Marshall Smith is an artist, educator and Highlands Ranch resident. He can be reached at craigmarshallsmith@comcast. net

as well as being aware one drink — depending on factors such as beverage and weight of the person — can put someone on the wrong side of the mark in a Breathalyzer test. As for the other side of the argument, we certainly accept the valid view of state Sen. Ted Harvey, R-Highlands Ranch. As the only vote for the bill, he said when his son turns 18, he will be able to fight in Afghanistan but will not be able to have a drink with his parents at a restaurant. That is a tough shot. Harvey’s comment echoed a debate that has decidedly diminished since the National Minimum Drinking Age Act of 1984. This strong-arm bill passed by the Congress subjects states with a minimum age for drinking that is below 21 to a 10 percent decrease in annual federal highway funds. It was a brilliant way for proponents to

keep the age at 21 because most states, like Colorado, so need transportation dollars for highways and aging bridges. But it’s simply not right. The drinking age, at its core an issue of individual liberty, should not be held hostage to the pocketbook issue of transportation dollars. Interestingly, incongruent laws that put voting and military service at 18 and drinking alcohol at 21 crudely reflect the true nature of coming of age where attaining maturity doesn’t happen on a certain birthday or day for each individual. But just maybe someday these laws will better align to clearly and legally mark adulthood while surrounding responsibilities and efforts — such as reducing drunk driving — are just as vigilant as ever in striving to balance our safety with our liberties.

Navigating the moguls of life Have you ever watched a really accomplished skier as he or she skied the moguls? They make it look easy as they seem to gracefully maneuver the bumps, have no wasted motions, all muscle groups are working in harmony, and they just look technically perfect and simply incredible. Then, have you ever observed an intermediate skier tackling that same terrain? They move slower, seem to try and go around each mogul, stop frequently, and in some cases find themselves sliding down the mountain, out of their gear after trying a little harder or getting a little more aggressive. And then they get up, usually with a little assistance, and continue to work their way down the mountain. In either case, whether we are extremely proficient or working on getting there, when we have spent some time in the bumps, and move on to find one of those intermediate groomed blue cruisers, we feel better about ourselves and our ability, we may even feel awesome as our confidence soars. I am not sure about you, but for me I have experienced this same feeling in other areas of my life as well. No one is an expert at anything before they learn a skill, develop a talent, and take the time to practice. It is in the practice where we make the most strides and advancements of our skills and talents. As a young salesman responsible for developing a territory and cold calling I had to learn the communication skills necessary to open doors and opportunities. It was only after many cold calls and knocking on doors that I developed the skills and confidence to become truly effective. But opening doors was only the first part, I then had to learn how to speak to senior level executives and present in big intimidating boardrooms. The first few times I can tell you felt like

I was a beginner who found himself on a double black diamond ski run loaded with moguls. I was coming unglued and definitely wasting motions, wasting time, and losing more than I was winning. Each prospect was different and when I found myself having to present to smaller groups or someone in a less intimidating role, I found myself gaining confidence. The more I failed in those larger meetings, the more I learned. The more I practiced with smaller customers the better I became at selling to larger clients and in complex selling situations. There is an old saying that goes something like, “The fruit we enjoy at the mountain top was grown in the valley.” And it is so true in all areas of our lives. So whether it is getting into the moguls or bumps on the mountain or just stretching yourself a little more, remember that our growth does happen in the valley. I would love to hear all about your times in the valley and on the mountaintop. Together let’s make it a better than good week.

Group questions schools’ fiscal policies District challenges claim that kids are sold short By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com An organization focused on Douglas County schools issues says the district is hoarding money better used in classrooms. The district, meanwhile, says it is managing finances prudently, and putting any excess back into the classroom. An independent report lends some validity to both viewpoints. Credit-rating agency Fitch gives Douglas County high marks for its fiscal practices. “The district’s financial cushion has improved significantly in each of the last two fiscal years, driven by large operating surpluses and conservative financial management,” reads the Jan. 28 report. Fitch, which lists the district’s unrestricted fund balance at $86.7 million, praised DCSD for conservative budgeting that increased revenues and reduced reliance on funding from voter-approved tax measures. Douglas County voters rejected such mea-

sures in 2008 and 2012. But the volunteer Strong Schools Coalition doesn’t share Fitch’s enthusiasm about those healthy reserves, saying they could have prevented this year’s $3.6 million cut to area high schools. Strong Schools questions many aspects of the budget, including a district policy of allocating funds to individual departments to use as they see fit. That includes saving the money and carrying it over from one year to the next, a practice Strong Schools says pads the fund balance and sells students short. “It’s not a for-profit organization,” said Susan Meek, Strong Schools’ vice president. “They’re holding too much, and we are not serving those kids.” Not so, said school board member Kevin Larsen. The school board aims to keep 4 percent of its operating budget in the unassigned fund balance at all times. For the 2011-12 school year, the amount not earmarked for other uses was about $18 million, he said. “Anytime we’re above that line, we’re putting that money into some effort that’s going to support the classroom in the next year,” he said.

The district made the decision to cut the high schools’ budgets in mid-2012, when the economy still was floundering and the state revenue forecast was gloomy. To address the budget cuts, large class sizes and potential loss of electives, high schools shifted to a block schedule. In September, DCSD got an influx of property tax revenue, utility savings and other unanticipated funds. It put $125 per student in those one-time funds back into the schools. It was too little, too late, says Strong Schools. “Although the district returned money to the schools in the fall, principals, who finalize their budgets in the spring, were unable to make the best building decisions possible because they were unaware these funds would be available,” said Laura Mutton, the group’s president. At the high school level, officials say the problems were not just financial. “It didn’t matter if we were going to cut or not,” said Dan McMinimee, assistant superintendent of secondary education. “Programming was unsatisfactory. We had to change the schedule. We had to do something to drive down class sizes.” The district also couldn’t have predicted

September’s $6.6 million influx of tax revenue, he said, and couldn’t budget with money that wasn’t yet in its coffers. “I wish we would have known last spring,” Chief Financial Officer Bonnie Betz said. “Absolutely that would have made things better. But we didn’t.” Strong Schools questions the district’s ability to forecast, or find the money to bridge the funding gap it believes already was within its budget. “Bottom line, we took unnecessary cuts to the classroom,” Meek said. Now, Mutton says, “We are simply asking them to correct the problem and restore funding to our schools.” That may be what happens in 2013-14. DCSD already has announced no additional budget cuts, and if the current strong revenue projections hold true, officials say they will direct more money to the classrooms. High school principals then can decide how to use that money. That could include hiring additional staff to take the burden off teachers who added classes in 2012-13, or shifting away from the block schedule.

Education group on a mission during visit to Capitol Year of the Student urges higher funding By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com Several Douglas County parents and students made known their concerns about education funding at the state Capitol Jan. 30. They were among about 200 people representing the Year of the Student Coalition who delivered a call-to-action letter to legislators. The letter was signed by nearly 9,000 people with support from more than 150 organizations. Coalition organizers say recession-induced cuts to an already struggling state education system have reduced school funding to intolerable levels. Colorado ranks 42nd in the country, spending $2,518 less per pupil than the national average, according to the Colorado School Finance Project. “2013 is a deadline,” said Denver’s Lisa Weil, spokeswoman for Great Education

Colorado. “Year after year, we just seem to say this is just how Colorado is, there’s nothing we can do. We are trying to focus the legislator’s attention and say, `Make this the year you do it.’ ” ThunderRidge High School freshman Hayley Stromberg joined the group. “We’re asking legislators to attack this problem the way our parents and teachers tell us to take on tough problems in school and life,” she said in a news release issued by the coalition. “Be creative and persistent. Don’t make excuses. And don’t give up just because something is hard, especially if it’s the right thing to do.” For the first time in five years, the state’s 2013 revenue forecast includes no cuts to K-12 education. But that’s not enough to turn the state around, Weil said. “People understand we have done real damage to our schools the last four years,” she said, citing Colorado’s TABOR and Gallagher amendments among the contributing factors. “Put that together with the recession, and it was just the perfect storm,” she said. The Douglas County School Board is

plan said officials at Developmental Pathways agree that it would be best to relocate the sex offenders, but a plan of action has not been finalized. Erin Kane, the head of school and a founding member of the executive team that launched the original charter in Castle Pines, said the school is engaged in goodfaith negotiations with Developmental Pathways and an appraisal on its property is under way. The process to approve the amendment, as well as a replat that turned four separate lots into one, was further complicated when Town Councilmember John Diak disclosed that he has three children who have been accepted into American Academy. Councilmember Joshua Rivero also revealed that his family is on the charter’s waiting list. However, both men said they did not believe that their ties to the school would affect their decision. Several opponents of the project, and

Councilmember Debbie Lewis, said they believed Diak and Rivero’s connection to American Academy could pose a conflict of interest. Both men recused themselves from the vote. No residents spoke against the project Jan. 28, and one woman, Kate Waters, supported the school during the public comment portion of the meeting. She said she has felt strongly that the school is needed in the area and believes it will eventually be viewed as “one of best things that’s ever happened to Parker.” Before voting in favor of the requests, Lewis said she is more confident that traffic congestion will be lessened now that changes, including the expansion of Motsenbocker Road, have been made to the plan. Lewis lives blocks from the proposed school site. At buildout, the Parker school will house about 900 students; American Academy has a waiting list of about 2,500, with as many as 600 of them from Parker. Officials hope to open the school by this fall.

not among the 30 boards listed as coalition supporters. But board member Kevin Larsen said they’re listening. “I think anything coming out of that group is a statewide solution,” Larsen said. “Certainly, Douglas County is part of that. But their efforts are targeted toward the Legislature.” He said he wants to take a “judicious, thoughtful” approach to the problem. “This goes into the degree that individual districts have over how they apply (funding),” he said. The board long has expressed concern about DCSD’s funding. Among the state’s 178 districts, DCSD’s funding is 20th from the bottom, according to the Colorado Department of Education. That’s because the district has a relatively low number of stu-

dents considered at-risk, who typically are more expensive to educate. “(The coalition’s) idea is great. I haven’t endorsed or criticized it,” he said, adding he’ll reserve judgment “until there are more specifics.” State Sen. Ted Harvey (R-Highlands Ranch) said the Year of the Student coalition is preaching to the choir. “Their intent was to say `focus on education,’ and we already do,” he said. “I think people will be happy to see the state starting to increase the funding for education in comparison to what we’ve done in the past.” Year of the Student was launched by Great Education Colorado, a grassroots group advocating for greater investment in K-12 and college education.

guage training. Chaparral arranged special English classes for the students and included them in school activities. The teens have also been incorporated into the daily lives of their host families. Parker residents Rob and Judy Nelson, whose two girls attend Chaparral, have hosted five exchange students over the years. They became familiar with the Chinese language program when eldest daughter Briana began taking it at Sierra Middle School. She later traveled to China for six weeks as an exchange student. “She said she learned a lot about herself, she learned a lot about different cultures that she wasn’t familiar with at all, and she still, to this day, speaks Chinese and will take Chinese in college as well,” Judy Nelson said, adding that her daughter is planning a career in international business, where speaking Chinese will be important.

Rob Nelson said the cultural understanding aspect is the “essence” of what the program is all about and will further improve future relations between the two world powers. Chinese language classes in the school district have come a long way since 2005, when Channell began teaching 17 students. It has since grown to nine instructors and between 1,500 and 2,000 Douglas County students. She said the support of Chaparral principal Ron Peterson helped ensure its success. The exchange program and classes are providing a fresh outlook on other cultures and giving American students a leg up when competing for jobs. “We intend to expose the students to the larger world around them and let them know there are opportunities for them everywhere,” Channell said. “In a global economy, who knows where these kids will end up?”

IB program has aim of opening minds Students prepare for global market By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com Language describing the International Baccalaureate program echoes the Douglas County School District’s explanation of its world-class education curriculum. But IB is only a piece of the district’s relatively new approach, officials say. “IB is one of the programming options we have available to us, but we never believe one size fits all,” said Carolyn Jefferson-Jenkins, the district’s chief academic officer of secondary education. “As we try to personalize and customize education for students, we have to offer choices,” she said. “Our world-class education is the broad umbrella for all the other programming options that are available. IB is

one of those stems in the umbrella.” The curriculum is designed to keep pace with a rapidly changing world, so “students will be able to compete against students across the nation and the world for the most sought-after careers,” according to the DCSD website. It emphasizes critical thinking, collaboration, civic responsibility, global awareness, ethics and civic responsibility. IB, a European-developed program with tiers aimed at specific age groups, helps “develop the intellectual, personal, emotional and social skills to live, learn and work in a rapidly globalizing world,” according to its website. It places a strong emphasis on foreign language, cross-cultural understanding and research. “Most of the tenets of IB are part of a world-class education,” JeffersonJenkins said. “But there are other models of instruction that get to the same world-class targets that IB does. “Some students and parents in Douglas County may not want that

much emphasis on a foreign language. They may want an emphasis on something else.” STEM-specific, career-focused and technical education programs offered in DCSD all are part of the world-class education curriculum, she said. STEM students focus heavily on science, technology, engineering and math. For teachers, IB encourages backward design — starting with the desired educational outcome and planning back from that point. That, too, is part of DCSD’s education model. ThunderRidge High School, and its feeder middle school Ranch View, recently were authorized to teach IB’s Middle Years Programme (MYP). IB’s goals align with the Common Core Standards adopted by Colorado and 44 other states. The more rigorous academic standards, announced in 2009, are designed to position students for competition in a global economy. DCSD officials say their program aims to exceed those education reform efforts.

Telecom firm chooses Lone Tree Center will make move from Greenwood Village By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com TW Telecom will move its national operations center from Greenwood Village to Lone Tree. The company will replace Aurora Bank in a Park Meadows Drive building south of the under-construction Kaiser Permanente medical center. TW Telecom, which provides business Ethernet and other telecommunications services, has about 1,200 Colorado employees. Most of them will move to the new building between now and 2015, when the company’s Greenwood Village lease expires. “These are relatively high-paying jobs, and this is a really strong em-

ployer,” Deputy City Manager Seth Hoffman said. “The more strong employers we attract, the better our restaurants and retailers do. “We think the development activity in Lone Tree is some of the best anywhere in Colorado. This is another indicator of that.” TW Telecom’s corporate headquarters already are on Park Meadows Drive in a separate building, and will remain there. “It made good sense for us to move our employees closer to our corporate headquarters,” said TW Telecom spokesman Bob Meldrum. “We pride ourselves on having the best customer experience in the industry. Part of that is providing excellent work facilities and opportunities for our employees.” In addition to national operations center employees, TW Telecom’s customer care, call center and general office support staff will move to the Lone

Tree address. The company also has a sales office in Aurora that will not move. The ParkRidge Six office building that TW Telecom will lease is now in unincorporated Douglas County and will be annexed into Lone Tree. ParkRidge Six, the Marriott Hotel and Chili’s are among a pocket of buildings south of the Lincoln and Interstate 25 interchange that fall within the county. The city’s long-term goal is to annex them all, Mayor Jim Gunning said. “We provide safety, road and plowing services to that area,” he said. “We really feel like we should incorporate the businesses in that area into Lone Tree. And we feel there’s an advantage (to the businesses) to being in Lone Tree.” The Marriott and Chili’s identify themselves as Lone Tree already, he noted.

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com Colorado’s exciting “Snowmastodon Project,” which surfaced in 2010, will be represented by a selection of fossils, a video about the 2010 discovery and information about the science developing from the site at Snowmass. Museum volunteers will clean and prepare fossils from various Colorado dig sites. The “Mammoths and Mastodons: Titans of the Ice Age” exhibit runs Feb. 15 through May 27 at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science. The exhibit, originating at the Field Museum, will include life-sized models of Ice Age animals, as well as fossil tusks and skulls. Visitors will learn to distinguish between mammoths — weighing up to eight tons, with tusks up to 16 feet long — and mastodons, their shorter, stockier cousins. A model of Lyuba, a 42,000-year-old

Free parking. baby mammoth discovered in 2007 by a reindeer herder and his sons, will help visitors understand the science behind Lyuba and how it aids in our understanding of modern-day elephant relatives, which are now struggling for survival. Lyuba’s eyelashes, ears and internal organs were found. Man entered the picture and was another predator of these beasts, as he is today. Spear points, cave painting and other prehistoric art illustrate the interaction between humans and mammoths and mastodons. Interactive exhibits include: balancing the weight of a tusk or trunk; a look into a cave in Southwest France to see reproductions of prehistoric cave paintings and learn about them through interactive games; an “Elephant Vocal Communication” interactive and an “Excavation Sta-

tion” touch cart. In October 2010, a bulldozer operator working near Snowmass uncovered bones of a young female mammoth. During the next 10 months, the Denver Museum of Nature & Science conducted the largest excavation in its 112-year history, finding more than 6,000 bones of 41 kinds of animals. Included: mammoths, mastodons, ground sloths, tiny rodents, camels, deer, horses, giant bison and even tiger salamanders. The high-alpine ecosystem had protected the specimens found in this most significant scientific discovery. A 40-member team from the museum, the U.S. Geological Survey and academic institutions from North America and Europe is studying samples of bones, plants, insects , sediment and biomolecules. The study will continue until collective results are ready for publication. Lead scientists Kirk Johnson and Ian Miller have published “Digging Snowmastodon,” which is available today. A “Nova” television special, “Ice Age Death Trap” was shown on PBS. Related programs and lectures, found on the museum’s website, include an IMAX film: “Titans of the Ice Age 3 D IMAX” ongoing at $10, $8.

lem, she says. It should be satisfying for the band members also. The piece begins with a cadenza for the flute and she enjoys performing it. Bouton grew up in a musical family and graduated from Highlands Ranch High School in 2000, after studying music there with Mark Wurst. “There were always music lessons,” she recalls and lots of little home performances with her sister, who is a singer. Her father, Art Bouton, teaches at the University of Denver’s Lamont School of Music and performs frequently in the area, including with the new Colorado Repertory Jazz Orchestra, which he organized. It has performed at Lone Tree Arts Center this year. When Jenny is home for the holidays, they play flute duets — “a really special connection,” she said.

She received her BFA from the Peabody Conservatory and an MFA from Carnegie Mellon University. Her teachers included Jeanne Baxtresser, former Principal Flute of the New York Philharmonic, Alberto Almarza, Marina Piccini and Pamela Endsley (Colorado Symphony). She was with the Virginia Symphony in Richmond for three years prior to joining the Milwaukee Orchestra in 2011 and has apeared nationally and internationally. As a special encore, she and her father will perform “Flower Duet” from the opera, “Lakme,” which she has often performed with her sister, she said. The arrangement for two flutes is by her teacher, Jeanne Baxstresser. The band’s program, called “Love is in the Air,” will celebrate Valentine’s Day with romantic music, including “Se-

Mayor Hancock busts a move

Last week, Mayor Michael B. Hancock fulfilled the final element of a friendly wager made with Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake before the Divisional Playoff game between the Denver Broncos and Baltimore Ravens on Jan. 13 (and we all know how that ended up ... sniffle). Under the terms of the wager, Mayor Hancock sent a box of dry aged “cowboy cut” ribeye steaks from Lombardi Brothers Meats to Rawlings-Blake. The mayor had additionally agreed to perform the famous Ray Lewis pregame dance but was sidelined by an injury. Until now. To view the video of that performance, go to www.youtube.com/ watch?v=4KVczvxpUvU.

Renowned flutist returns to Colorado By Sonya Ellingboe

For the second year in a row, the Four Seasons Hotel Denver has earned recognition as the No. 1 ranked hotel in the 2013 listing of Best Hotels in Denver by U.S. News & World Report. The Four Seasons Hotel Denver also was named No. 6 on U.S. News’ list of Best Hotels in Colorado for the second year in a row. The 2013 Best Hotels ranking recognizes hotels with a record of high customer satisfaction and an exceptional reputation among published travel experts. “We’re thrilled to receive the top ranking in the City of Denver for Best Hotel two years in a row,” said Thierry Kennel, regional vice president of Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts and general manager of Four Seasons Hotel Denver. “All credit is given to our incredible team. Without their dedicated service and passion, we would not be No. 1.” Rounding out the Top 5 are The RitzCarlton Denver, JW Marriott Denver, Cherry Creek, The Brown Palace Hotel and Spa, and The Oxford Hotel. There’s more. The Best Hotels in Colorado are also ranked on the U.S. News’ list with Aspen’s The Little Nell snagging the No. 1 spot.

Steven Ballas, Jr., owner of Steve’s Snappin Dogs and host of the recent green chili contest, declared the event a “great success”. “Between my 10 percent of the daily sales and the cash donations that I hawked with the $1 Steve’s Snappin Ale, $1 tortillas to eat with the green chili and the personal donations, I am proud to tell you all that the first Chow Down for Charity of 2013 raised $610 for Project Angel Heart,” Ballas said. “What a great day for us all!” The fire-breathing event was judged live on the air during the weekly Gabby Gourmet radio show (1 to 3 p.m. Saturdays) on KHOW 630-AM. Judges were Jon Emanuel, executive chef of Project Angel Heart; Westword foodie Lori Midson; Denver’s 7 meteorologist Lisa Hildago; Mile High Sports Radio personality Mark McIntosh; Joan Brewster of the American Culinary Foundation; Artie Guerrero, president and national director of paralyzed veterans of America, Mountain States Chapter; and moi.

strengths and I love the creativity that marketing a home offers me. I love figuring out how to market the home so that it will appeal to the broadest set of Buyers.

Broker Associate The Encore Home Team rkenny@thedenver-100.com www.beckykenny.com Where were you born? My father was in the Army and stationed in Fort Riley, Kansas where I was born. My family moved to Colorado when I was a child.

What is the most challenging part of what you do? There are so many individuals involved in achieving a successful closing. Making sure that everyone meets his or her obligations is critical to this success. Attention to detail is just one of my strengths that enables success for my clients.

How long have you lived in the area? 12 years What do you like most about it? I love the small town feel that Castle Rock offers and how the community cares about one another. I feel so connected to the people whose path I cross daily. How long have you worked in Real Estate? 9 years

What do you most enjoy doing when you are not working? Golfing, travelling and cooking with friends.

You never get a second chance to make a first impression. Having your home professionally staged (which is one of my services) and making it shine like a penny will help a home rise to the top of Buyers choices. What is one tip you have for someone looking to buy a house? Asking great questions and then listening carefully to my Buyers enables me to understand what is important to them. Price is always paramount, but understanding location, style of home, schools, amenities, features and what gets my Buyers excited always allows me to “hit a home run” for my Buyers. What is the most unusual thing you’ve encountered while working in Real Estate? That’s a tough question because as you can imagine we have the opportunity to encounter so many unusual situations. I have learned that you always have to maintain your professionalism, be the calmest person in the room and remember to breathe and laugh.

What is your specialty and what does that mean for the people you work with? I work with all ranges of both Buyers and Sellers. I am passionate about serving my clients and helping them

Factors that might hurt a home’s value N owadays, homeowners looking to sell their homes know it’s not as easy to do so as it might have been a few years ago. A struggling economy has made it difficult for many homeowners to sell their homes for a price they’re comfortable with. But the sagging economy is not the only thing can make it difficult to sell a home. In fact, a host of other things, some obvious but some not so obvious, can hurt a home’s value as well. Location: A home’s location is arguably its best or worst selling point. A home in a great location won’t be as difficult to sell as a home in a bad neighborhood. But location goes beyond a neighborhood’s reputation, especially in recent years. Homeowners who live in a neighborhood or development with many foreclosures might find those foreclosed properties are hurting their own home’s value. Lots of foreclosures could negatively affect

a neighborhood’s reputation, which might make a home within that neighborhood less attractive to prospective buyers. Appearance: A home’s appearance is another obvious variable that might affect its resale value. Homeowners might want their home to reflect their own individuality, but that’s not going to help when the time comes to sell the home. If the exterior paint is out of the ordinary, then it might be wise to choose a more traditional or conservative color before erecting the “For Sale” sign out front. The same goes for a home’s interior. If the interior design is especially unique, a more traditional interior decor might help the home sell faster. Size and style: Another thing to consider when selling a home is its size and style. A home that stands out on the block might be an attention-grabber, but that’s not always attractive to prospective buyers. For instance, a colonial sitting in the middle

of a street filled with contemporary homes will stand out, but likely for all the wrong reasons. It will likely appear dated and out of place, which is something buyers might not want. In addition, if the home is considerably larger or smaller than the surrounding homes, then this could hurt its value. Non-conformity: In many ways, conformity is not considered an admirable trait. But when selling a home, conformity could make the difference between a home selling quickly or remaining on the market for months if not years. When shopping for a home, buyers often shop in certain neighborhoods and towns and might see many different homes within a given ZIP code. Homeowners with homes that don’t conform to others in the area might find it difficult to sell their homes. For instance, homeowners trying to sell a two bedroom home in a neighborhood filled with three bedroom homes might

notice their home’s value is not as high as that of surrounding homes, regardless of the neighborhood or how similar the home’s exterior is to surrounding homes. Age: Older homes might have character and a sense

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

ranks 41st out of 432 cities. “This eight-year accomplishment as the safest city in Colorado is truly remarkable,” said Mayor Cathy Noon. “It reflects the dedication of the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office to keep the city safe year after year. This is a great accomplishment and privilege for all who live, work and play in Centennial.” Other Colorado cities and their rankings include Arvada (59), Longmont (73), Fort Collins (116), Boulder (120), Westminster (147), Greeley (173), Thornton (175), Aurora (235), Lakewood (259), Colorado Springs (278), Denver (328) and Pueblo (354). The crime rate rankings of the cities and metropolitan areas are calculated using six crime categories: murder, rape, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary and motor vehicle theft. The rankings include all cities of at least 75,000 residents that reported crime data to the FBI in these categories. City Crime Rankings is one of five annual reference books published by CQ Press that analyze and rank states and cities in various categories.

Children’s book author gets lucky with digital Meegenius offers variety, gives writers a chance By Ryan Boldrey

rboldrey@ourcolorado news.com Angela Leibee had gotten so used to rejection notices from publishing companies that she almost deleted a long-awaited email from MeeGenius.com before even opening it. “I had already gotten one email back from them for my other book, and it was another rejection,” she said. “I was just so used to it, that I almost didn’t open the second email.” Good thing she did. MeeGenius, a digital publisher that specializes in children’s books, saw something they liked, and

for Leibee that meant, after years of trying, she was finally a published author. Her book, “Sarina and the Very Messy Room” is a tale of a girl who can’t find anything as she prepares to get ready for school. It is geared for ages 4-8, but as Leibee says, it can be enjoyed by younger children too. “With the MeeGenius platform you can read the book or have it read to you, and I think even younger children could relate to a messy room,” said Leibee, a professional organizer, who based the book on her 15-year-old daughter. “She has always been messy like that,” Leibee laughed. “It’s just one of

those things where there’s only so much you can do, but at least I got a book out of it. It’s kind of funny, me being a professional organizer to write a book about a messy kid. It’s actually kind of stressful for me to look at the mess in the book sometimes.” Leibee got her book, but more importantly she gained a newfound confidence. And while she works on trying to get “I Can Be Brave” — a book about facing childhood fears — out there, she is singing the praises of her publishing company. “What I think is really great about them is that they are giving the first-time authors the chance to put their stuff out there,” she said. “With traditional publishing houses it is so difficult to get an in. MeeGenius will look at everything.”

ActiveRx Helps the Elderly Gain Confidence By Manny Gonzales mgonzales@bestchamber.com When Julee McElhaney began having dizzy spells and falling, her family took notice. At 86 years old, Julee’s lack of balance was having a creeping, scary effect on her ability to get around and her family looked for remedies to the situation. They took her to the new ActiveRx in Englewood where physical therapists worked with McElhaney on helping her learn to walk better and helped her gain strength where her body had let muscles decondition. “I’m absolutely back to where I should be at my age,” McElhaney said recently as she and 120 business leaders from the South Metro Denver Chamber celebrated a Business After Hours event at ActiveRx. “I can walk around by myself and not worry so much anymore.” ActiveRx, located at 300 E. Hampden Ave., Suite 100, in Englewood is helping elder adults hold onto their youth by providing physical therapy combined with strength training. The company specializes in working with elder adults, 65 years and older, who are feeling and getting around slower than their age should suggest. “Our philosophy is you can gain strength at any age,” owner Kiva Patton said. “We really look to change our clients’ lives. Some clients who have had fall risks and are afraid to leave their house,” he said. “We love to help get them back on track so that they’re able to leave their house and be able to walk their dogs.” Often, the decline of an elder adult’s health can be so gradual that it’s hard to recognize something is wrong or that the potential for hazard exists, Patton said.

Chamber President & CEO John Brackney shares a light moment with ActiveRx owners Dana & Kiva Patton during the Business After Hours event.

“We offer free screenings and free fall prevention, so for anyone who has an elder adult in their family who they’re worried about bring them in and we’ll give a free assessment of where they stand,” Patton said. Joan Tucker, one of the physical therapists who treated Julee, said that even at the age of 98 a person should be able to stand up seven times in 30 seconds without having to use his or her hands. When Julee came to them, she had already suffered a fractured arm from a fall and would get winded on short walks. “The second she’d turn her head one way or the other, she’d lose her balance and fall down” Tucker said. “Often times, people don’t identify there’s a problem till there’s been a major fall or a stroke or a hip fracture.” McElhaney said she was grateful that her family recognized she needed help and acted fast. “I love coming here to keep my body doing what I want it to do - and its always fun!” Congressman Mike Coffman was one

Opening the program will be George Balanchine’s “Theme and Variations,” performed to Tchaikovsky’s “Suite No. 3 for orchestra in G Major,” the first Balanchine piece performed since Artistic Director Gil Boggs joined the company—and the first in 10 years.

The lease at 1278 Lincoln Street expires in 2014. Boggs said the new site will provide more rehearsal space and amenities for dancers and staff, while keeping the company in the downtown area. Performances, approximately 50 each year, will continue at the Ellie. The new building will also have more studio space for the Colorado Ballet Academy, as well as convenient student dropoff and improved parking. (The company also runs a south area academy.) The company, which ended its fiscal year in the black with a record-breaking “Nutcracker” attendance, will soon launch a capital campaign, according to Executive Director Marie Bellew Wheatley.

Chaparral makes big splash at league championships Wolverines win crown for first time; relay sets record By Craig Harper

sports@ourcoloradonews.com Megan Grier and Makenna Wilson couldn’t stay away from the Chaparral girls swimming team for their senior season, and their return is paying big dividends. Each one captured a gold medal and a topthree finish as the Wolverines won their first Continental League team championship Saturday at Heritage. It didn’t matter to Chaparral that an asterisk might be attached, as perennial state power Regis Jesuit didn’t bring its entire squad -including multi-Olympic gold medalist Missy Franklin, who is scheduled to compete in this weekend’s Class 5A state meet in Fort Collins and most of those who were there didn’t compete in their primary events. Chaparral capped its climb to the top by winning the day’s final three events: Wilson the 100-yard backstroke (57.90), Grier the 100 breaststroke (1:08.50) and the 400 freestyle relay (Grier and Wilson as members along with Hannah Paris and Annie Graves) with a league- and pool-record 3:35.44. Six other Wolverines had top-six finishes as Chaparral edged Regis (no individual champions but winner of two relays) 493-467. Rock Canyon was third with 465 points. “I’m so excited and I think we completely deserve it,’’ said Wilson, who also was second in the 100 freestyle. “The girls worked so hard. It’s an honor to be on the team with them.’’ Wilson and Grier took last season off to swim with the DU Hilltoppers club team, and were rewarded them with Division I scholarships: Wilson to LSU and Grier to West Point. Wilson made the 2010 state finals in the backstroke and 200 individual medley; Grier was ineligible as a sophomore under state transfer rules after switching from Regis and will be making her first state-meet appearance. Wilson will compete in the backstroke and either the 100 or IM at state, while Grier will go in the 50 and 100 freestyles. “I definitely missed the team aspect; it’s been so much fun,’’ said Grier, who also took third in the 50 freestyle. “It’s the first-ever banner we’ll have for swimming.’’ The first league is “a big deal,’’ said Chaparral coach Brooke Westall. “We have no pool (the team trains evenings at Grandview’s pool), and several years ago we were lucky to be top six in the league. This is such a great thing. “These girls worked their butts off. It’s been just kind of a magical year for them.’’ The Wolverines trailed by some 50 points halfway through the finals before Wilson and

“When we look good, we look really good. When we look bad, we look really bad.” Ponderosa wrestling coach Corey McNellis

‘I’m so excited and I think we completely deserve it. The girls worked so hard.’ Makenna Wilson Grier led the charge down the stretch. “I knew we had a good chance, but we had to have a much stronger back half,’’ Westall said. Chaparral has qualified 10 girls for state, six more than last year’s previous high, and it’s a blend of experience (three seniors, including Graves, who was 11th in the backstroke at state) and youth (a freshman class that included three finalists at the league meet, and two sophomores who combined for three top-six places). Legend and Castle View had their moments as well. The Titans finished fifth behind Heritage (324-287), but produced a pair of champions, Allison Arnold in the 500 freestyle and diver Cat Badillo, both defending their titles. Arnold, a junior who was second in the 500 at last year’s state meet, won by more than 10 seconds with a time of 5:12.73.

She also took second in the IM but is expected to double with the butterfly at state (she was ninth in the 200 freestyle last year). Arnold’s odds of winning the 500 are vastly improved now that Cherry Creek’s Bonnie Brandon - last year’s other dominant swimmer -- has moved on. Brandon beat Arnold by just under 15 seconds last year. “I probably won’t beat her state record (4:43.52), but it would be nice to get first,’’ Arnold said. “But there are a lot of good 500ers out there.’’ Badillo, who finished second to two-time state champion Michal Bower of Loveland at state last year, edged Mountain Vista’s Ashley Peterson by .9 point in the league final at Littleton. It was the first 11-dive competition and just the third meet of the season for Badillo. She took off four months from training and diving for therapy on a sore hip and lower back that she said had been bothering her for a year, returning about a month ago. “I haven`t been able to do full practices, so I’m very happy with my score,’’ Badillo said. “I’m happy I finished all of my dives. My expectations for state are to do my dives to the best of my ability.’’ Castle View finished eighth and got two second-place finishes by senior Morgan Stepp in the 200 freestyle and breaststroke. She was 12th in the butterfly at state in 2012.

jbenton@ourcoloradonews.com Ponderosa’s Williams brothers are primed for tonight’s Continental League championship dual wrestling match against Chaparral. Torry Williams, a junior, is the No. 2 wrestler in the On The Mat 145-pound state rankings, while Corry Williams, a senior, is rated No. 1 at 182 pounds. “We’ve had Torry for three years and this is the first month that he is actually starting to wrestle a full match,” Ponderosa coach Corey McNellis said. “That’s really exciting. If he wrestles a full six minutes, he’s unstoppable. “Corry Williams started the year playing basketball. For the first month he played basketball, he finally came to his senses and came back to wrestling.” ICING - Heritage won, Mountain Vista

notched two victories and Valor Christian split two games in last week’s Peak Conference hockey games. Connor Crory had a hat trick in Heritage’s 6-2 win over Palmer. Five different players scored in Mountain Vista’s 5-1 triumph over Bishop Machebeuf and Tanner Gillis scored a power play goal at the 4:52 mark over of overtime in the Golden Eagles’ 3-2 win over Lewis Palmer. Mountain Vista outshot Lewis Palmer 3512 in the chippy contest that saw a total of 64 minutes in penalties called, 50 against Lewis Palmer and 14 against the Golden Eagles. Matt Joseph had Valor’s lone goal in a 7-1 loss to Fountain Valley. Dylan Wheeler and Caleb Hance each had two goals in a 9-2 win over Rampart. Conference leading Heritage improved its Peak record to 10-1-0 and the Eagles are 14-2-0 overall. Mountain Vista stands at 9-2-0 and 13-3-0 while Valor is 7-3-1

and 11-4-1. Heritage and Mountain Vista play Saturday night at South Suburban Ice Arena. RANKINGS - Mountain Vista remained No. 2 in the Class 5A boys basketball poll released Monday while ThunderRidge climbed to No.3. Valor Christian slipped to No. 5 in the Class 4A boys poll and Lutheran was third in the Class 2A rankings. Four Continental League teams are in the Top 10 of the Class 5A poll. Regis Jesuit is top ranked with Highlands Ranch No. 2. The teams meet Wednesday night at Regis. Rock Canyon moved up to No. 4 while Chaparral is No. 8. Arapahoe is sixth in the poll. Lutheran is still No. 2 in the Class AA girls poll but is closing the gap in the voting on top-ranked Akron. Both teams are unbeaten.

Wolverines knock off Rock Canyon in h Top 10 battle

s exstate ar). astly nnie wim-

secstate o get good

Bacovcin scored 18 to lead the charge By Jim Benton

jbenton@ourcoloradonews.com HIGHLANDS RANCH - Chaparral came into Tuesday night’s battle of Top 10 girls basketball teams with two Continental League losses. Those setbacks came against Regis Jesuit and Highlands Ranch which happen to be the No. 1 and No. 2 Class 5A teams in the state. So Chaparral must have thought it was a breeze to play No. 4 Rock Canyon and the Wolverines, ranked No. 8, led from start to finish and earned a 62-56 road victory over the Jaguars. It was the first league loss in six games for Rock Canyon, now 15-3 overall. Chaparral improved to 4-2 in the Continental League and 13-4 overall. Rock Canyon had its 10-game winning streak snapped and the Jaguars travel to Highlands Ranch Saturday to take on the Falcons. “Rock Canyon is a good team,” said Chaparral coach Tony Speights. “They’re going to keep coming. He’s (Rock Canyon coach Robbie Ballard) built too good of program for them not to come. They’re not quitters. They were 15-2 for a reason. “Our kids showed a lot of moxie and got up, got after them and maintained.” It took Rock Canyon nearly four minutes to score in the first quarter as Chaparral jumped to an 11-0 advantage. Chaparral swished six 3-pointers in the first half including three plus a three-point play in the final 3:23 of the second quarter to take a 33-28 lead at halftime after the Jaguars had pulled to within three points. “We got on a roll right there at the end of the half,” said Speights. “We got the lead and were able to maintain it in the second half.” Rock Canyon made four of 16 field goal attempts in the first quarter and all were made by Lexy Thorderson.

Chapparral Wolverines Katrina Bacovcin scored 18 points to lead the Wolverines past Rock Canyon Tuesday night. Photo by Ron Chenoy “Chaparral is a good team,” said Ballard. “They are very disciplined. We like to get out and run a little bit and they kept it in the half court. “They got off to a great start and we didn’t start the game ready to go. We eased into it and before you knew it we were down 11-0. We fought back but you’ve got to start the game and play all the time. We didn’t execute very well.” Rock Canyon started to run more in the second half, worked the ball inside and got a couple turnovers because of Kendall Smith’s defense to narrow the Wolverines lead to two points at 40-38 with 2:41 left in the third quarter. However, Chaparral ran off seven unanswered points over the next five minutes with Katrina Bacovcin scoring five of those points and Natalie Baker two. Rock Canyon rallied again and was within four points with 2:27 remaining in the game but the Wolverines made eight of 10 free throws and Baker added a bucket down the

stretch to hold off the Jaguars. “It’s Baker, it’s (Katie) Longwell, it’s Bacovcin,” Speights said. “It’s a senior group. They’ve been around the block a time or two. They’ve played in some big games. That’s what you get playing in this league.” Bacovcin finished with 18 points, while Baker and Longwell each had 13 points. “We have been a second half team in tough games so we wanted to focus on the first half,” said Baker. “They are a good team and we knew if they got a lead they would want to keep it.” Thorderson led Rock Canyon with 18 points. Morgan Roos finished with 17 while Kendall Koslosky had 10 of her 12 points in the second half. “It was a frustrating game,” said Ballard. “It was one we thought we could win at home, one we should win at home. But, we have to move on and get ready for Ranch.”

The following is a capsule glance at last

Vigil had 17 points and Farra 10 against the Eagles.

Showdown between ThunderRidge, Mountain Vista looming By Jim Benton

jbenton@ourcoloradonews.com Joe Marucci is a senior guard for the ThunderRidge boys basketball team. However, he sounded an awful lot like a coach when discussing what’s on tap for the fourth-ranked Grizzlies. “We’ve got a stretch of four games coming up that are bears,” said Marucci. “We’re just looking one game at a time.” ThunderRidge (13-4) was tied with second-ranked Mountain Vista with 5-0 records atop of the Continental League standings prior to Tuesday night’s games. The Grizzlies took a six game winning streak into the opening game of their tough stretch Tuesday night with a game at Heritage against the suddenly formidable Eagles. On Friday night the biggest game so far this season in the Continental campaign will take place when ThunderRidge visits unbeaten and second-ranked Mountain Vista. The following week Chaparral and Regis Jesuit play in the Grizzly Den at ThunderRidge. Mountain Vista (16-0) played at Ponderosa Tuesday night. Ponderosa, Highlands Ranch, Legend and Heritage were tied, two games behind the leaders, with 3-2 league records prior to Tuesday night’s games.

The following is a wrap up on last week’s action. CHAPARRAL - The Wolverines lost to Heritage, 67-61, but came back with a big second half against Ponderosa to collect a 66-48 win. Jake Holtzmann scored 16 points against Heritage and the 6-foot-5 sophomore tossed in 20 points in the game against Ponderosa that saw the Wolverines (8-9) outscore the Mustangs 45-27 in the second half. LEGEND - Taylor Jenson had 16 points in a 59-39 win over Rock Canyon but the Titans (12-4) came up short after trailing by only two points heading into the fourth quarter in a 72-61 loss to Regis. Jenson and Jonathon Cosmann each contributed 11 points against the Raiders. CASTLE VIEW - Zach Mattice scored 16 points but the Sabercats had only 31 field goal attempts in the setback to Highlands Ranch. Castle View made 19 field goals. Castle View (5-12) dropped its sixth consecutive game in a 66-63 loss to Heritage. PONDEROSA - The Mustangs (10-7) edged Douglas County, 58-52, before losing to Chaparral.
