Jamison resigns Jamison releases her statement By J.J. Jamison Former Teller County Clerk & Recorder “When you walk into an office with the phone and computer on the floor, policies and procedures in disarray, little institutional knowledge, none for elections, and the staff believing you are going to fire them on day one you must literally begin from the ground up…that takes time. Did I make some mistakes? Admittedly. Was I making the effort? Absolutely! The recall committee called me and set an appointment to meet.

I was looking forward to speaking to adults who would allow me an audience without leveling accusations and yelling. They cancelled that appointment via email J.J. Jamison letting me know they were moving ahead with the recall petition. Most people would say last, but not least, I say, first and foremost, I thank my staff for their dedication to the citizens of Teller County, their loyalty and friendship to me, and their courage to go the distance as far as I could take it. I wish to thank the county departments that have so generously coop-

erated with this office. Even if I successfully withstood a recall election, the county administration would continue to render me ineffective. I want to see this office move forward. I wish to thank those citizens who have called, emailed, and sent me cards and letters of encouragement and support, which have held me strongly in place, and helped me hold my head high. I know that you understand my need to step away, and on to other adventures. That being said I issue you a call to action. If you accept what you have always gotten you will continue to get what you have always accepted. If you object to the business practices of your county commissions don’t tell me. Tell them.”

Lawrence gets 10 years for GMF arson Destroyed by arson fire last year, the Green Mountain Falls Town Hall is today only a memory. With the sentencing last week of Kyle Lawrence to 10 years in prison, and five years of parole, there is a measure of closure.

phill@ourcoloradonews.com Kyle Lawrence, 23, was sentenced to 10 years in prison and 5 years of parole for his secondary role in the arson fire that destroyed the Green Mountain Falls Town Hall Feb. 23. Lawrence pled guilty to the crime in November. In handing down the sentence Jan. 22, Judge Robert Lowrey was not swayed by the supportive statements for Lawrence from friends and relatives. “I struggle to understand your motivation for this horrible crime,” Lowrey said. “This has changed the town of Green Mountain Falls forever.” As well, the cost to the town of the crime is expected to be in the hundreds of thousands of dollars, Lowrey said. Lawrence was an accomplice in the fire masterminded by Zachariah Shaffer, who was sentenced last year to 12 years in prison and 5 years of parole. His supporters emphasized that Lawrence had been influenced by Shaffer. Lawrence was severely burned during the arson in an explosion inside the building and spent several months in a hospital in Denver. To this day, he cannot straighten his legs, said his attorney Cynthia McKedy. “He has suffered horribly, physically and men-

tally,” she added. Lawrence and Shaffer planned the crime, said Reggie Short, prosecutor for the 4th Judicial District. “They scoped out the building, took some time to locate the building,” Short said. As well, a text message sent by Shaffer to Lawrence pointed to the motive. “Shaffer’s message said, `you want to play with some fire? I just got sent to the Green Mountain Falls court. Some building is going down.’” Shaffer was due in the municipal court in Town Hall as a result of violating a deferred sentence, which began with a traffic ticket for running a stop sign. As a result of traffic infractions in

other jurisdictions, Shaffer was set to receive the maximum penalties and fines for the original charge. Short, the prosecuting attorney as well for Shaffer, repeated that the fire could have killed the elderly neighbor next door. He didn’t identify the neighbor, Barbara Gafford, by name. In arguing for the prison sentence, Short added that Lawrence consumed marijuana daily. Before Lowrey handed down the sentence, Lawrence said, “It was a reckless decision; I should have taken a different path. It was in the back of my mind that this was a bad decision.” Lawrence left the court in handcuffs.

Jamison submits compilation of statements from friends and colleagues Everyone in Teller County recognizes the name of “JJ” Jamison. Her commitment to our community is evident in her volunteer activism from the Pikes Peak Rotary Club, Girl Scouts, Junior Achievement, Salvation Army, Community Cupboard and Prospect Home Care & Hospice. She was elected as our Teller County Clerk and Recorder; she was the choice of the Republican Party. Prior to her election “JJ” had just completed 25 years as a financial planner, and CFP with Ameriprise Financial Services. She successfully sold her practice with the desire to commit 100 percent of her time and energy to the citizens of the county that is her home; to serve them in a different capacity. We believe her skill set is one that complements the office of clerk and recorder. Citizens are often not aware of the responsibilities of this office. The scope is broad, from the Department of Motor Vehicles, Recording, Vital Statistics (handled by most counties in the Department of Social Services), Elections (in 64 counties there are 64 ways of running Elections…it is a style and technique opportunity), and working with the treasurer and the assessor with the Board of Equalization, and on and on. While the buck stops with the leader, without skilled staff for the delegation of duties there can always be breeches in the system. “JJ” was investing in the future. The fiber of her commitment, and dedication to serve never wavered. She did her best, with the best intentions at all times. “JJ” believes without a doubt, that this office is better now than when she began.

Mistakes made were utilized for learning and improvement. Transitional leaders do not often continue when the energies of major change have taxed the system and culture. Some of those improvements include and are not limited to: the branch office in Woodland Park is now open during the noon hour to better serve the citizens, a regular informative article in the paper entitled “Clerk’s Clues,” more effective cooperation with other courthouse elected officials, an open door policy for citizens, with responses directly from the clerk for concerns and complaints, the extension of the Colorado Quilt Council’s Colorado Midland Trails Quilt Block project (one in each location), the successful application (with the county facilities department) of a $17,795 Americans with Disabilities Accessibility grant for the Woodland Park location (completion expected soon with hopeful expansion to include the Courthouse), and others. “JJ’s” vision may not be complete, and she regrets she will not be part of its continued development and improvement. Distractions from constant critiques to the grief of living through a possible recall make it necessary for her to step aside. One wonders if the energy of the Republican Party and her fellow elected officials would have been better placed to assist in her success, Teller County may have achieved the clerk and recorder desperately needed. Teller County Government is losing a very gracious public servant, and we are confident that her contributions to our community will prevail. Thank you, “J.J.”

Legislators mull Medicaid expansion By Pat Hill

phill@ourcoloradonews.com If Colorado legislators approve the expansion of Medicaid in Colorado as a result of the Affordable Care Act, the federal government will cover 100 percent of the cost for the newly-eligible from Jan.1, 2013 through 2016. By 2020, Colorado will be responsible for 10 percent of the costs. Supported by Gov. John Hickenlooper as well as the Colorado Hospital Association, the expansion is expected to increase Medicaid eligibility for 160,000 Coloradans and save $280 million over the next decade. Pikes Peak Regional Hospital is a member of the CHA. In a press release, Hickenlooper writes that “not one dollar from the state’s general fund will be used for this expansion, even in 2017, when the federal government begins to reduce its share.” The ACA expands Medicaid eligibility for adults earning up to 133 percent, rather than 100 percent, of the Federal Poverty Level. For a family of four, the FPL is $30,657 a year, for a single, it’s $14,856. “The idea is that with more people covered by insurance, it helps every level of care,” said Kim Mauthe, executive director of Teller County’s Department of Social Services. “With the increase in insured patients, the number of visits to the emergen-

Pictured, are four of the staff members gearing up for the expansion: Janine Childs, Carmen Slagle, Angie Allen and Aimee Jaramillo. Photo by Pat Hill cy room is expected to decrease.” According to the Department of Health Care Policy and Financing, new efficiencies in medical delivery are expected to: • Enhance services to prevent unnecessary or duplicative services for $22 million in savings. • Increase effectiveness by coordinating

care and meeting performance benchmarks for $86 million in savings. • Reform payment systems to reward value instead of volume for $86 million in savings • Leverage health-information technology for a savings of $43 million • Redesign administrative infrastructure

Mine center celebrates Day of Service

The Aspen Mine Center celebrated Martin Luther King Jr. National Day of Service Jan. 19 with fundraiser to help fund the many services the center provides to the community throughout the year. Fundraising events include a pancake breakfast and a bake sale. A food drive also helps feed needy clients and families in southern Teller County.

That same day, Aspen Mine Center volunteers partnered with the Coalition for the Upper South Platte, spreading seeds in the Waldo Canyon Fire burn area on the Flying W Wranglers property in Colorado Springs to help mitigate some of the erosion problems that are likely to result from last summer’s fire. Center volunteer Alison Ostrin coordinated both events.

and reduce fraud, waste and abuse. Legislation passed last year gives incentives for counties to find and prevent client fraud for a savings of $43 million. Mauthe points to the hospital provider fee as a funding mechanism for Medicaid. “When someone goes to the hospital and doesn’t have coverage the hospital will apply to Medicaid for that person,” Mauthe said. According to the CHA, the fee increases hospital reimbursement rates under Medicaid and the Colorado Indigent Care Program. In 2011, Colorado hospitals incurred nearly $1.7 billion in uncompensated costs, due in large part to low Medicare and Medicaid reimbursements rates. As well, the report cites the costs associated with treating uninsured patients. In Colorado, if legislators approve the expansion the provider fee will continue to increase the Medicaid reimbursement rate. For Mauthe, another issue is the “churn”By P factor as people from one program to an-phill other, from Medicaid to perhaps a statebased health insurance exchange as a re- Th sult of the ACA. “When people come incomm and apply for Medicaid 50 percent of themNorm will probably qualify for other programs,”publ Mauthe said. “It’s a ratcheting effect, somiss that’s the concern social and human servic-genc es has throughout the state, as to just howthe D that is going to affect our ability to meet theCoun need.

Two days before their first ms,”public meeting, the two, along with comt, somission chair Dave Paul held an emerrvic-gency meeting to name Wayne Williams as howthe Designated Election Official for Teller t theCounty. Williams is El Paso County’s Clerk on.” and Recorder. The designation is the result of the pending recall petition against J.J. Jamison, Teller County’s Clerk & Recorder whose election duties were taken over by the Secretary of State in June. At the public meeting Jan. 24, the commissioners had no time to relax as they were asked to rule on an abatement petition right out of the chute. While Paul and Steen agreed with the recommendations presented by Brad Larson, Teller County’s commercial appraiser, Dettenrieder took a stance and voted no. At issue was a petition by Ron Bullard, who owns the Historic Triple B Ranch, to lower the value of the swimming pool and recreation enclosure, built in 1957 and1998, respectively. While Bullard sought a reduction in value from $59,272 to $30,359, Larson recommended a value of $47,987. Paul and Steen agreed and the motion passed. On a sour note, Paul reported that unemployment in Teller County is 8.8 percent, a contrast to that of Colorado Springs at 7.8 percent. On the good news side, the new com-

missioners heard an upbeat financial report from Jane Mannon, community affairs director for the Cripple Creek & Victor Mining Co. Among the financial statistics were: • 504 employees and a $43 million payroll; 283 employees live in Teller County and earn $18.6 million • Average salary and benefits of a mine employee is $86,000 • Average hourly wage is $25 an hour • Each CC & V job supports an additional 4.6 jobs in Colorado • CC & V produced 247,266 ounces of gold and 101, 682 ounces of silver in 2012 • The mine paid $3.7 million in taxes to Teller County and $8,117,783 to the state, including $2,197,000 in severance taxes. “Hopefully we’ll get those severance-tax dollars back into Teller County,” Mannon said, referring to grants awarded through Energy and Mineral grants. The grants were removed by the state but brought back this year. Last year, CC & V won the Environmental Stewardship Pollution Prevention Program award and received the Excellence in Hard Rock Reclamation Award for Successful Completion of the Altman Backfill Reclamation Project. With approval to expand operations, the mine is scheduled to begin removing trees and topsoil while making drainage improvements in the North Cresson, across Colo. 67 from the Heritage Center in Cripple Creek. Actual mining is scheduled to begin in the first quarter of next year.

nengelberg@ourcoloradonews.com Two Woodland Park citizens attended a Casing Ceremony when the 62nd Engineer Company of the 4th Engineer Battalion cased its flag in preparation for a 9-month deployment to Afghanistan. The Flag Casing Ceremony is a long standing military tradition, said Woodland Park City Manager David Buttery (Lt. Col. U.S. Army Ret.) who attended the ceremony with Michael Harper of Michael Harper Real Estate. “Casing the colors signifies that their duty has ended at this station,” he said. “Unfurling the colors at the new duty station says `We’re here.” The primary mission for the company’s 100 soldiers is route clearance operations. This basically means they will be keeping roads clear of Improvised Explosive Devices.

Photo by Courtesy photo “It’s a very dangerous job,” Buttery said, adding that the 569th Engineer Company will be deploying back to Fort Carson in early February. “We’re hoping to have a good showing for them when they arrive home. Our tradition is to fly the 4th Engineer Battalion’s flag at Lions Park as long as their companies are deployed overseas.” The city of Woodland Park officially adopted the 4th Engineer Battalion several years ago.

Victor plans special election Citizens petition to repeal building codes By Norma Engelberg

nengelberg@ourcoloradonews.com Two Victor citizens have created a petition that will send the city into specialelection mode despite costs of up to several thousands of dollars. Former Victor City Councilmember and current Cripple Creek-Victor RE-1 School District board of education member Don Daniel and Victor resident Marshall Winblood circulated a petition late last year to repeal the city’s building codes. Daniel said he and Winblood circulated the petition for several reasons. One reason is the issues they had with the Teller County building department. “The county doesn’t want to work with

Victor and its 120-year-old buildings,” he said. “The county wants us to follow the codes 100 percent and doesn’t accept variances. It takes forever to get anything done; it’s ridiculous.” Issues with the county weren’t the only reasons Don Daniel for repealing the city’s codes. “The city enforces the codes based on who you are and who you know,” Daniel said. “Also because of the 50 percent rule people aren’t sure when they need a building permit and when they don’t.” According to the 50 percent rule, when more than 50 percent of a building is being renovated or remodeled, the entire building must be brought up to current code. The questions the rule raises, according to Daniel include how the 50 percent is mea-

sured. “Is it based on value, square footage or something else?” he asked. “This isn’t clear and the city council hasn’t made it clear.” He said he was hoping the petition would force council to solve its building code problems. Once the petition signatures were certified as sufficient, Victor City Council had two options. They could repeal the codes immediately or they could send the repeal to the voters. Council decided it wasn’t in the city’s best interest to repeal the codes without having new codes ready to replace them. Mayor Buck Hakes also said he didn’t think council should allow itself to be bullied. “I’m surprised that council voted to send this to election,” Daniel said. “Even if the codes are repealed, the city would still have state building codes. We’ll see what happens.”

Honeycutt and City Administrator Deb Downs said the election, which is set for April 30, will cost the city several thousands of dollars. “We won’t know exactly how much it will cost until the attorney’s bills arrive after the election,” Honeycutt said. As in past Victor elections, registered voters living within the city limits will be able to cast their votes from 7 a.m.-7 p.m. at city hall. According to Downs, the repeal is a bit ironic since creating Victor-friendly building codes is one of her top priorities and the process was already well underway when the petition was circulated. She said the new codes would be ready to put into place no matter what voters decide at the polls. Honeycutt estimated that the city has about 200 registered voters, 103 of which voted in the Nov. 6 General Election.

Commissioners defend Second Amendment Resolution passes unanimously, many citizens in support By Lisa Collacott

lcollacott@ourcoloradonews.com The El Paso Board of County Commissioners is sending a message to the federal government by passing a resolution in defense of the Second Amendment right. Commissioner Peggy Littleton brought forth the resolution that was unanimously approved during the Jan. 22 BOCC meeting. This comes on the heels of President Barack Obama’s proposed ban on assault weapons and limiting ammunition magazines. The Obama administration is recommending that there be a required criminal background check for all gun sales, a ban on assault weapons and a 10-round limit on ammunition magazines, eliminating ammunition piercing bullets, providing mental health services in all schools, allocating funds to hire more police officers and instituting a federal gun trafficking statute. The resolution states that the BOCC “will uphold the second amendment of the Constitution of the United States and will act in conformity of our sworn duties as duly

The El Paso Board of County Commsioners passed a resolution on Jan. 22 in defense of the Second Amendment rights. The commissioners are adamantly against any gun restrictions that President Obama is proposing and said they will defend the Constitution. Photo by Lisa Collacott elected officials charged with public trust, and will, in conjunction with prior decisions by the United States Supreme Court, not enforce any statutes, Presidential directives, or other regulations and proclamations which conflict, and are expressly preempted by, the U.S. Supreme Court’s rulings.” The BOCC also states in the resolution

that it “strongly urges the U.S. senate to reject international treaties that will infringe on the Second Amendment rights of American citizens” and that “neither Congress or the Colorado General Assembly should entertain legislation that would infringe on the constitutional rights of the Second Amendment including additional restrictions on firearms or accessories or on the possession, use, sale or transfer of firearms that are legitimately owned.” “We are in the middle of an unprecedented fight between liberty and tyranny, between freedom and control, between the constitution and Washington and the people’s right to keep and bear arms. The Second Amendment is at risk,” Littleton said. Commissioners, citizens in agreement Commissioner Darryl Glen said that it is important for other governing boards to take the same action as El Paso County. He said they are setting the tone to lead on issues when it comes to defending the constitution. “I’m extremely proud of this board for taking proactive steps to make sure we fight for all of those rights. When you take that oath you take an oath to defend the entire Constitution,” Glenn said. Commissioner Amy Lathen said that there are a lot of ways to say what they are

trying to express and what they are trying to protect and gave examples by stating that 32,367 people were killed by cars in 2011, calling cars “assault vehicles” and that Timothy McVeigh, the Oklahoma City bomber, killed 168. “You can still buy fertilizer, you can still buy racing fuel and you can still rent box trucks. Murders will murder with or without a gun. Guns are not the problem,” Lathen said. “It’s important to remember that 84, 999, 987 firearm owners killed no one yesterday. I think it’s very important to keep these kinds of things in mind and to fight for the truth and that is that there is an element out there that wants the citizens to be unarmed and that is not going to save anyone except government power.” All of the citizens that spoke during the public hearing spoke in favor of the resolution and said they applauded the BOCC for passing it. Sheriff Terry Maketa is in agreement with the resolution and has stated in a letter on his website that “I absolutely believe in and stand firmly against any effort that infringes on the rights of law abiding citizens to own and possess firearms of their choice. Furthermore I will actively oppose any effort that infringes upon your Second Amendment right.”

Cheyenne Mountain Shooting Range open Special to The Tribune The new Cheyenne Mountain Shooting Complex officially opened with a somewhat unusual “ribbon shooting” ceremony on Jan. 23. Located on 400 acres of Fort Carson property, it is the largest public range in Colorado. Twenty-one shooters representing partners in the facility, El Paso County, the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office, Fort Carson, Colorado Parks & Wildlife and the National Forest Service, lined up and took aim at the ceremonial ribbon. “For many years, soldiers and families here wanted a place to come shoot. Soldiers like to shoot. So we are thrilled to finally be able to meet that request and our partnership with the county allowed us to build the complex. It’s a project that was three years in the making and today’s ribbon cutting is only possible because of the team formed between Fort Carson and El Paso County through incredible diligence, perseverance and dedication to a common goal,” Fort Carson Commander Major General Joseph Anderson. Board of County Commissioners Chair Dennis Hisey reminded those in attendance that the search for a suitable site for a public shoot-

ing range began five years ago after the U.S. Forest Service closed an inadequate and poorly maintained shooting area west of Colorado Springs. Hisey observed that the partnership with Fort Carson was truly unique opportunity to bring together a number of partners committed to the development of a clean, safe and accessible public range. The complex currently consists of seven shooting ranges with approximately 120 covered shooting positions. Three ranges are designated for rifles with distances from 300 to 500 yards. Four are designated pistol ranges and one flexible distance range is prioritized for law enforcement and public safety training purposes. The opening of the range marks the completion of phase one of a three-phase construction plan. “Today is a very, very special day. We are about to hear what I consider to be sounds of freedom, shots fired from free people,” Commissioner Vice-Chair Amy Lathen said. “Free people exercising their right to bear arms here in this great nation. I am thrilled to open a facility that will support that right and be an extraordinary amenity to the citizens of El Paso County.” “As you can see, this range stretches down 300 yards and be-

nengelberg@ourcoloradonews.com The Friends of the Florissant Library have lost track of exactly how many times they have had a Children’s Winter Fun Day. “We know it’s been at least 15 years,” said Debbie Rakowski, who, with fellow Friends’ member Diane Burton, has been planning the event for the past three or four years. “It started out as a Mardi Gras event, then it changed to a Valentine’s event and now we just call it a winter fun day.” The free fun day will be from 10 a.m.-noon on Feb. 9 in the Community Room at the Florissant Public Library. Children can expect music and snacks and a number of activity tables manned by volunteers. Children will be encouraged to decorate pretzels, make jewelry, create Valentine cards, color dinosaur

Center, 950 Tamarac Parkway, in Woodland Park. Fitness trainer Rebecca Janecek will be instructing both classes. The classes are funded by a federal grant that is funneled through the YMCA. According to a YMCA news release, Moving for Better Balance is a falls-prevention program that uses the principles and movements of Tai Chi to help seniors improve their balance and increase their confidence in doing everyday activities. The Mayo Clinic said Tai Chi, or Tai Chi Chuan, is an ancient Chinese martial tradition that, today, “is practiced as a graceful form of exercise. It involves a series of movements performed in a slow, focused manner and accompanied by deep breathing.” It’s a noncompetitive, self-paced, lowimpact system of gentle physical exercise and stretching that is often used for stress reduction and to improve flexibility and balance. It takes no specialized equipment. To register for either 12-week class, call Janecek at 719-963-0988.

nengelberg@ourcoloradonews.com It’s all about movement. That’s the conclusion of several medical studies on fallprevention for older adults. That’s why the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention funded the development of a Moving for Better Balance program at the Oregon Research Institute. The 12-week Tai Chi movement-based class that came out of that research and development will be coming to Teller County in February and March. The class, which is free for seniors aged 60 and older, will be offered twice a week in two different but almost simultaneous sessions. The first 12-week session is 2-3 p.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays from Feb. 25May 15. The other 12-week session will start one week later 3:15-4:15 p.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays from March 4-May 22.

OPINIONS / YOURS AND OURS

Shoup: Workhorse governor connects area’s history Threads that connect Governor Oliver Henry Shoup to this area are woven into to the very fabric of Pikes Peak area history. Shoup, a rancher and businessman of Northern El Paso County, served two terms from 1919 to 1923. Something as basic as a Colorado workhorse, bred for cow savvy and performance capabilities, reflects those ties. The linage of the legendary “Colorado Ranger Horse” breed for example, can be traced to one of two sires: Patches #1Z and/or Max #2Z. Patches was a descendant of horse given to Ulysses S. Grant by the Sultan Abdul Hamid of Turkey. Max came from Shoup’s ranch north of Colorado Springs. Oliver’s son, Merrill E. Shoup, was president of the Golden Cycle and the Holly Sugar Corporations, as well as numerous other companies originally controlled by Cripple Creek empire builder, A.E. Carlton. The younger Shoup is credited (through his congressional testimony) with helping to get the government to raise the price of gold over the pegged rate of $35 per ounce and lobbied to keep limited production going after the government declared gold mining non-essential to the war effort. The elder Shoup, Oliver, began his

business career in 1888 with a job at General William J. Palmer’s Colorado Springs Company, according to James Chipman and Erin McDanal, staff archivists at the Colorado State Archives. “Eight years later he was offered the position of private secretary to Verner Z. Reed, a wealthy mining man, who at that time was conducting an investment and real estate business. After a few years, he became general manager of Reed’s extensive enterprises. While working with Reed and other Colorado Springs capitalists, he became interested in the oil industry, later making his fortune by opening a number of Wyoming oil fields. He was the first president of the Midwest Oil Company; and in 1914, he became the first president of the Midwest Refining Company. Two

Surviving the February doldrums The February midwinter doldrums are nearly upon us. Why does the shortest month of the year always feel as if it were the longest? Aside from the Super Bowl and buying chocolate or maybe some flowers in the middle of the month, there is really nothing out there to break the monotony of this cold-and-colder, dry-and-drier month. Even a road-closing, work-from-home-inyour-jammies snowstorm would be a nice change and something we really, really need. I’m heartily glad that 2013 isn’t a leap year; I don’t think I could stand having another February day. A lot of people have suggestions to alleviate the February doldrums. For example, www.styleathome.com suggests washing the windows and cleaning out the medicine cabinet. Why not just add sorting socks and make it a clean bur boring sweep? Two of their ideas are better, turning off the TV and planning a dream vacation. I know that turning off the TV is counter intuitive when you’re already bored but if there were such a thing as National Rerun Month February would be it and when was the last time you found anything good on one of those 200 or so channels you’re paying too much for? You might just be a lot better at entertaining yourself without it. Try it. Planning your dream vacation sounds like fun even if you don’t actually get to go. You never know, dreaming about a trip to New Zealand (Hobbiton here I come) might just be the motivation to start saving for the trip. My dream vacation would be on Mars but I don’t think that trip will be available anytime soon. I would think seriously about going if the trip were shorter. If you

think 28 days in midwinter are boring, try eight months or so in a space capsule without even weather to look at. Someday an ion drive might cut that down to a month, in which case what’s the difference between a month at home and a month in space? Not much, if that month is February. Speaking of dream vacations try searching for “Things to do in February.” You’ll get links to things to do in Hawaii, Chicago, New York City, Los Angeles and even Denver. Various sites on the Internet list things to do in just about anywhere you can name and some places you wouldn’t dream of naming. Oh well, most of us will just wait February out and dream our little March dreams. Remember the old saw: March winds bring April showers, April showers bring May flowers and Mayflowers bring Pilgrims. May also brings hurricane season, even though the Mariners’ Hurricane Poem states “June too soon (we’ve already proved that’s not true). July stand by. August look out you must. September remember. October all over. (The season actually runs through Nov. 30.)” There is only one strong tropical storm on record for February (Groundhog Day 1952-forming so early they didn’t name it) but there are plenty of historic blizzards, something we could use this dry winter.

years later, he retired from active participation in the oil business and devoted his time to stock raising and agricultural development throughout the state,” says the state archive. Oliver Shoup was also a primary management influence and owner of the Edgar Box and Lumber Company that leased and cut timber for a sawmill located on land in the Black Forest area owned by Cort Burgess. “Perhaps what Shoup is best known for his efforts to develop the Moffat Railroad Tunnel project which was one of the world’s greatest engineering feats. He labored persistently to have the six-mile tunnel bored through the Continental Divide,” says archivists for the state. “On June 3, 1921, after three days of torrential rain, the Arkansas River swelled over its banks, driving into and through the city of Pueblo and down the valley, killing more than 100 people. The deluge also carried with it 600 houses and estimated $19,000,000 worth of property was destroyed. “Governor Shoup responded by summoning the legislature into a special session. Legislation was passed allow-

ing for the construction of flood control installations at Pueblo. Piggy-backed onto this legislation was a bill allowing for the construction of the Moffat Tunnel. Both concepts were passed at the same time in order to get support from the southern counties for construction of the railroad tunnel. There had been opposition to the Moffat Tunnel in the past, because the more southern Arkansas Canyon had been the main railroad route through the mountains. Now, the northern tunnel would be the main railroad gateway through the Rockies. Finally, and largely through Shoup’s efforts, the Moffat Tunnel was begun in 1923.” That action caused a tremendous amount of hard feelings in southern Colorado aimed at the northern portion of the state, and leadership from the Colorado Springs area. “Some believe the resentment in Pueblo, caused by what is essentially political blackmail, lingers to this day,” notes David Iler of Cyberwest magazine in a 1995 article.

Science catches up to food addiction issue Editor’s Note: This is part one of a two part series on food addiction. It was Christmas time in 1977 and Kay Sheppard knew that something was wrong when she looked in the mirror and saw herself eating candy out of a box that she had hidden in her dresser drawer. She had purchased the sweets to give to her father as a Christmas present, five times, and she had eaten all five boxes in the same fashion. The overweight Florida mother of two had previously made countless trips to the grocery store buying cookies, chips and other goodies for her family only to find herself eating the junk food on her way home. The horror of her image in the mirror eating her father’s candy, however, was an epiphany. Sheppard began to think of herself not as a dieter but as an addict in recovery, addicted to sweets, carbohydrates and any and all sugary, fatty, salty processed food. Not unlike an alcoholic trying to give up drinking one day at a time, she began the daily struggle of giving up highly processed simple carbohydrate foods. She stopped focusing on her weight and instead concentrated on her food addiction. Her approach has been so successful that today she is a licensed mental health counselor with three bestselling books on food addiction, who conducts workshops for food addicts worldwide. Check her out at http://www.kaysheppard.com/. It’s only taken three-plus decades for science to catch on to what Sheppard knew intuitively. The theory that the brain responds to high-fat, high-calorie foods much the same as it does to drugs is beginning to gain traction with the National Institute on Drug Abuse, which funneled nearly $6 million into research on the topic in 2011. Scientists are beginning to study what they call “highly palatable” foods such as sodas, ice cream, French fries and pep-

peroni pizza and scrutinizing just how much these types of food appeal to our palate and how hard they are to resist. Experiments in animals and humans have shown that, for some, the same reward/ pleasure centers of the brain that are triggered by addictive drugs like cocaine and heroin are also activated by foods rich in sugar, fat and salt. The most compelling case for food addiction comes from studies with animals, where researchers examine the biochemical changes that occur when animals are fed a diet of highly palatable foods. In experiments at the Rockefeller University, neurobiologist Sarah Leibowitz injected rats with those chemicals and found that it led the animals to eat more fat. “The more you eat, the more you want,” she says. Perhaps the most frightening aspect of Leibowitz’s research is that the changes that occurred in the brains of the rats in her experiment may be passed on. Her study showed that pregnant rats on a high-fat diet gave birth to offspring with neurological alterations in their hypothalamus, the part of the brain heavily associated with appetite. Hmmmm? Tune in next week for the “skinny” on the signs of food addiction and ways to beat it.

Helping the nation starts at home Former U.S. Sen. Alan Simpson pulls no punches. He is crusty, direct, sometimes profane and he isn’t all that concerned with what people think of him. But he certainly cares about the future of this country. The outspoken Republican from Wyoming was in the Denver area on Jan. 21 to share his views on the topic he has grown synonymous with in recent years, the national debt. He has some complex, controversial and detailed ideas on reducing that $16 trillion mountain. But when Simpson took some time to speak with us before addressing an audience at the South Metro Denver Chamber of Commerce, what stood out most was his call to action for everyday people. “If you love your country, get involved,” he told us. We strongly endorse that message. And Simpson sets a great example as someone who has spent many of his 81 years being involved. He served briefly in the Army in the 1950s, was elected to the Wyoming House of Representatives in the 1960s, and served in the U.S. Senate from 1979-1997. In 2010, as the co-chair of a commission tasked with tackling the nation’s fiscal challenges, Simpson

OUR VIEW and Erskine Bowles, chief of staff for President Clinton, authored a plan that gained some popular support but not approval of Congress or the president. Simpson did not give up and is still taking on the debt, now as a co-founder, along with Bowles, of the nonpartisan Campaign to Fix the Debt. South Metro Chamber President John Brackney, it should be noted, is a member of the steering committee for the campaign’s Colorado chapter. Brackney and the chamber, like Simpson, should be applauded for working to bring attention to the debt. So what can you do to get involved? Go to town halls. Ask questions. Write letters to the editor. Challenge your government officials when appropriate. Praise them when appropriate. These are basic, but effective, ways to make a difference as a citizen — whether your mission is debt reduction or saving a

playground from being turned into a parking lot. And for young people thinking of going into politics, Simpson suggests they focus on the work itself and enjoy it, rather than worrying about climbing the political ranks. Don’t be afraid to start small, be it the local school board or the city council. Be prepared to challenge and to be challenged. Above all, be prepared to compromise because politics is like a good marriage in this regard: If one side insists on getting his or her way 100 percent of the time, not much constructive is going to happen. But through give and take, things can progress, as Simpson knows, having been married nearly 60 years. “If you think compromise is a dirty word, don’t get into politics,” Simpson says. He knows compromise, having taken his share of heat from both the left and his own party. His politics could be viewed as too liberal for the GOP and too conservative for Democrats, and that’s just fine with him. Whether you like his politics or not, like what he says or not, Simpson has a passion for service. And for sharing that, we owe him a great debt.

A train ride in the snow After last the snow story in my last column, how about looking at a train ride in the snow? It was definitely different than driving in your car. I have to say, I like riding on a train in the snow. I even enjoy the winter on Pikes Peak. Except for having to get out in it, riding in the red Swiss trains when everything else is whiteand the sky is blue is a treat. Let’s take the train from Colorado Springs, in say 1900. Just for good measure it is already snowing at the station. A big steam engine is not only smoking, but steam is coming from anything that’s hot. Each car has a stove in the corner for heat but the other end of the car might be freezing. Some cars have piped steam from the locomotive but others have only that one stove. The cars heated by steam have piping running under the seats and the further away from the locomotive you are, the colder it is. In these cars there are additional stoves, but that doesn’t really help much when it is really cold. Once the train starts moving the breeze through poorly sealing win-

dows adds to the cold, but if there is enough frost, those get sealed naturally. Ice on the inside of the windows blocks the view. The first-class passengers in the Pullman car get nice warm blankets for their laps. The seasoned passenger has dressed warmly and may have brought something like a buffalo robe! Think about the engineer and fireman up there in the cab, the coldest “warm spot” on the train. Once the train is moving, the inside of the cars get quite comfortable. This is complicated when the train slows down, and stops for the next station. Even if there are no additional passengers, the conductor has to open the doors to check. The early cars with open platforms on the

ends are the worst. Newer cars have a double set of doors and a vestibule. To add to the misery, some trains did not have food available. Travelers had to bring their own. A few railroads bought dining cars but after the evening meal the next one was breakfast. Getting to and from the diner was almost not worth the trip. The open platform cars were gone by the time most railroads started using dining cars but still getting from one car to the next was almost like being outside. Once you got to your destination you had to deal with being on foot. If you were lucky someone would be waiting for you. You might have to walk a block or more to a hotel. Imagine walking on snow several feet deep! Things like this rarely show up in old western movies. Ah well, if you travel by Amtrak, sometimes it is still like that!

Forest Gump inspires Sweetheart By Pat Hill

phill@ourcoloradonews.com Sold out weeks before the event Feb. 9, the Sweetheart Ball has achieved what other organizations can only dream about. The ball is a combination of lap-of-luxury trappings with a financial commitment to help others. A benefit for Help the Needy, a nonprofit organization that offers a “hand up rather than a handout,” the ball is distinguished by the caliber of donated auction items. From the sublime to the adventurous, the items include one week in condos in Hawaii and Florida, a week in a home in Breckenridge, a night at the Broadmoor and brunch at the Summit, an overnight and

dinner at the Swiss Chalet, Bronco Billy’s or the Wyndham and dinners at upscale restaurants in Ute Pass and Colorado Springs. Art work, salon services, furniture, jewelry, liquor and limos, the items are pamperplus. Perhaps the most unusual is a packtrained llama donated by Stage Stop Llamas in Teller County. The theme is compelling, a line borrowed from Forest Gump that “life is like a box of chocolates; you never know what you’re going to get.” With 63 boxes of chocolates, each with a gift certificate attached, guests are invited to buy a box for varying prices and gamble on what’s inside, a reflection of the Gump theme. “You never know what life is going to deal you, so that’s where Help the Needy

comes in,” said Linda Meier, who with Rose Carpenter, chairs the event. “It’s a great event to be part of because there are a lot of needy families in Teller County.” This year’s needs are somewhat different from those of last year. “The distribution of our monies has usually gone to help pay utility bills,” said Bob Taylor, president of the HtN board. “This year, we’re paying more mortgage payments and rent they were what the clients needed to get through the period.” Taylor is proud of the quality of HtN’s largesse, a process that begins with the initial interview. “When a client comes in, they get one of two answers: no or a qualified yes,” Taylor said. If affirmative, clients receive budget

Ball

counseling and advice on making decisions. “When people are in crisis mode, they make bad decisions,” he said. To seal the deal, clients sign a contract agreeing to seek ways to be self-sustaining within a few months. “We tell them they have to make better decisions,” Taylor said. Help the Needy was founded 31 years ago by Greg Schilling who modeled the allvolunteer organization on assessing clients’ willingness to be helped. The Sweetheart Ball, which features valet parking and dinner by Neil Levy’s Swiss Chalet, is sold out but the organizers encourage others to come to Shining Mountain Golf Club at 9 p.m. to dance to the John Cary Band.

Raising the Bar at the Gold Bar Room Theater Venue adds Sundays, awardwining acts to summer schedule By Norma Engelberg nengelberg@ourcoloradonews.com Visitors to the Gold Bar Room Theater website will hear a different version of “Going up to Cripple Creek” than they’ve heard in the past. The iconic song, which is actually about Cripple Creek, Tenn., is being sung by Hank Cramer, one of the theater’s May acts. An earlier version was sung by Danny Griffith, who played his piano for 18 seasons and a record 3,000 performances when the theater was owned by Wayne and Dorothy Mackin from 1946 to the early 1990s. The Gold Bar current owners are re-mastering and re-issuing Griffith’s 11 albums. He is gone but his piano is still at the theater. According to theater entertainment director George Enterman, the goal for the 2013 season was to add Sunday performances every weekend through September. “We’ve already done that and better,” he said. “Nearly every performer we’ve booked this summer has an award-winning act,”

Enterman said. The shows in February coincide with the two weekends of Cripple Creek annual Ice Festival. On Feb. 9, Aaron Back returns as “The King” a tribute to Elvis Presley. On Feb. 15-16, Fire & Ice Theatrical Troupe brings in a “Night of Musical Theater.” The March 16 show is “Cowpoke Cousins” featuring Susie Knight whose debut CD won the 2012 Cowboy Poetry CD of the Year award. She will be appearing with local singers Donna and Tom Hatton. There is only one show in April as well. On April 27, “The Miner Pickers Bluegrass Band” from Idaho Springs will entertain with hand-clappin’, knee-slappin’, toe-tappin’ music. The summer season gets into full swing starting with Cramer’s show May 18-19. On May 24-26 GT Hurley will take to the stage. After their shows there will be shows every weekend through September with a few shows added in October and November. June’s headliners include Belinda Gail, winner of 13 Western Music Association awards including six for Female Performer of the Year; Dave Jackson and “A Tribute to the Rat Pack,” Last Flight Out and finally on June 30 the “Buffalo Bill Experience” with Last Flight Out’s Jeff Newman. On June 1, Award winning Western Clown Lasso the Cowgirl from the Circle M

Belinda Gail will be the featured headliner June 14-16 at the Gold Bar Room Theater at the Imperial Hotel in Cripple Creek. Courtesy photo Ranch will entertain children at a special price of $5 per ticket. “We’ll have three different shows for (the

82nd annual) Donkey Derby Days (June 2930), starting on June 28,” Enterman said. “I’m also the vice president of the Gold Prospectors of Colorado and I’ve been able to book the 2013 Gold Panning Championships for that weekend. Previously, the competition has been in Breckenridge but Cripple Creek is a perfect fit.” In July the stage heats up with more award-winning cowboy and country music from the likes of Barry Ward, International Yodeling Champion Marty Davis, Country Music Association Artist Peggy Malone and James Michael’s “Call of the West” show. August is another star-studded month but one of its highlights is the return of Wyatt Earp as Doc Holiday on Aug. 10 for a special Cripple Creek District Museum fundraiser. September is another full month, Three shows are already booked for October and one for November. “We’ve just installed a brand new sound system so that great sound will reach every corner of the theater,” Enterman said. Show-only tickets are still $15 in advance but the at-the-door price is now $18. Dinner-show tickets are $25 and are only available in advance.

Grant offers math students technological gold mine Woodland Park High School classes get 90 new calculators By Norma Engelberg

nengelberg@ourcoloradonews.com A grant from Cripple Creek & Victor Gold Mining Co., a division of AngloGold Ashanti, has given Woodland Park High School math students the opportunity to use stateof-the-art programmable calculators in their classrooms. “At the beginning of the year I was trying to find out what the teachers needed,” said math coach Dave Malmquist, whose job in the Woodland Park RE-2 School District is to help math teachers improve their craft. “I found out that our six math teachers were sharing one classroom set (30) of out-ofdate calculators.” He said technology is imbedded in today’s math curriculum but many students can’t afford to buy the calculators they need for their classwork. “The teachers said `Wouldn’t it be nice if we had more classroom sets of calculators for the kids to use,’” he said. “Some students can afford to buy their own calculators but

the ones they need are pricey; $100-$150 at least. Most district families can’t afford that.” After researching the students’ needs, the products offered and the cost, Malmquist chose Texas Instruments’ TInspire CX Handheld graphing calculators that are suitable for scientific, higher math and financial applications. “These are like mini computers and probably the best calculator you can get for high-school students,” Malmquist said. “They can be used for college entrance exams and on SAT and ACT tests.” Once the technological decision was made, it was a matter of looking for funding to buy three classroom sets, 90 calculators, and the docking stations that allow teachers to program the calculators with classroom material all at once. “The district can’t afford that kind of capital expense,” Malmquist said. “(Assistant Superintendent) Linda Murray suggested I talk to the mine. I filled out a grant application and talked to (community affairs manager) Jane Mannon. I told her that Texas Instruments would throw in free training for teachers if we buy at least 90 calculators.” Mine officials agreed to the request and

School District math coach Dave Malmquist holds up one of the Woodland Park High School math department’s new calculators that were bought with a grant from the Cripple Creek & Victor Gold Mining Co. for students to use in their classes. Behind him are the calculator docking stations that allow teachers to upload programs into all the calculators simultaneously. Photo by Norma Engelberg gave the district a $13,500 grant to buy the technology. The new calculators arrived just before Christmas and teachers who were already familiar with the technology have started using them in their classrooms. “I really want to thank the mine for investing in this community and in our kids,”

Malmquist said. “Without partnerships like these our kids would be at a disadvantage.” Malmquist has taught math for 16 years and has been an administrator for 13 years, all in Colorado schools and is amazed at how quickly technology has changed. “It’s exciting where we’re going,” he said.

Bad season for pet owners Making ends meet includes feeding the dog, cat, hamster... By Norma Engelberg

nengelberg@ourcoloradonews.com For almost 430 families, a local organization stands between feeding beloved pets and having to find new homes for them. The Pet Pantry for Teller County distributes about 4,000 pounds of pet food each month to families in economic trouble. “It’s been a bad winter,” said Pet Pantry founder Penny Sharkey. “We had 120 new families asking for help in December and we have 120 families who return for pet food nearly every month.” The food comes from donation by large business organizations such as Walmart and King Soopers, as well as donations from individuals and charities. “We would never turn any donation away but we like cash donations best,” Sharkey said. “We have a deal with St. Paws and Kibble Kitchen (nonprofit organizations) to buy almost but not quite expired pet food for six cents a pound.” Pet Pantry has set up collection sites in Woodland Park at Park State Bank and

Trust and at Ent Federal Credit Union. “We’re looking at other collection sites but they’re still in process,” Sharkey said. The organization helps feed all kinds of companion animals from dogs and cats to rabbits and gerbils. Besides donations of pet food and money, the pet pantry is looking for items that can be used in silent auctions and other types of fundraisers, pet supplies and equipment and more volunteers to help with weekly distributions. Every Tuesday evening volunteers package pet food for pick up from 9 a.m.noon on Wednesdays at the Seventh Day Adventist Church parking lot on Colo. 67 north in Woodland Park. “We try to make sure each family has enough pet food to last about three and a half weeks,” Sharkey said. “We’re also collecting funds for an emergency veterinarian assistance program. We can’t pay the entire bill when an animal needs emergency assistance but we can help.” Donations can also be made through PayPal at the organization’s website, www.petfoodpantrytc.com, or by sending checks or money orders to Pet Food Pantry for Teller County, PO Box 645, Woodland Park, CO 80866. Call the pantry for more information about giving help or being helped at 719-687-1839.

Neighbors of Country Ridge Estates & Forest Edge Park, Autumn Chipper day, 2012

Lord gathers Firewise neighbors By Pat Hill

phill@ourcoloradonews. com Nudged to do something about defensible space after the Hayman Fire in 2001, Scott Lord was absolutely galvanized after being evacuated during the Waldo Canyon Fire in June. “We’ve got to do something,” said Lord, prime motivator behind the kickoff meeting next month for neighbors in Forest Edge and Country Ridge Estates in Woodland Park. “One guy can do a little but a whole neighborhood can change the odds.” The neighborhoods, which border Pike National Forest, hit the spotlight in July when the Department of the Interior initiated a fire-mitigation project in the forest. “That got me thinking,” Lord said. Seizing the initiative, Lord wrote and secured a $10,000 grant from Colorado State Forest Service to create the organization, Woodland Park Friends of Forest Edge, and head up the forest-mitigation drive last year. Lord’s enthusiasm eventually caught on. “We had a chipper day last spring with 9 or 10 families; CUSP sent a crew out to trim, stack and chip the limbs and wood cuttings,” Lord said.

The kick-off meeting in February is designed to attract a larger number of homeowners in the two neighborhoods. “This project is about educating the neighbors, letting them know what we can do together,” he said. “It’s all about creating defensible space.” On the plus side, as a result of the trimming projects, including the chipper day, the two neighborhoods have achieved national recognition as a Firewise Community. The 2013 Kickoff meeting is a pep rally for the neighborhood, to renew interest in creating defensible space and prepare for Chipper Day April 13.

“The meeting will be an acknowledgement of the work we’ve done and set the stage for the work to come,” Lord said. “It can be fun, we can celebrate. The key is collaboration with all the stakeholders.” The organization includes the neighbors as well as the city of Woodland Park, Northeast Teller County Fire Protection District, the state forest service, Coalition of the Upper South Platte, the U.S. Forest Service, Pike Ranger District and the USDA Natural Resource Conservation District. The meeting is at 6:30 p.m. Feb. 19 at Mountain View United Methodist Church. For information, call 291-8781.

Pebble Pups take national awards By Pat Hill

phill@ourcoloradonews.com

Jack Shimon, 8, took third place in his age category in the art contest sponsored by the National Park Service and American Geological Institute. Shimon is a member of the Pikes Peak Pebble Pups.

He makes fossils come alive while excavating the connection between science and art. Dedicated to awakening a sense of curiosity within his Pikes Peak Pebble Pubs, Steve Veatch is a Teller County gem whose students have picked up national awards for poetry and art. “I’m pushing them in writing, in art work, even the poetry which unleashes their minds across curricula,” Veatch said. “If you have bad grades, or grades that aren’t the best, if you become a Pebble Pup, grades will go up. Life will never be the same once you become a Pebble Pup.” In a ceremony at the Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument Jan. 19, Veatch paid tribute to his youth paleontologists, including Pebble Pups Ciena Higginbotham, 15, and Jack Shimon, 8, who took first and third places, respectively, in their age categories in a national art contest. The contest was sponsored by the Na-

tional Park Service and the American Geological Institute. Veatch, too, was honored with a certificate of appreciation from the Geologic Division of the National Park Service for his work mentoring youth. Monument ranger Jeff Wolin presented the certificate. To the Pebble Pups in the audience, Wolin offered words of encouragement. “You are the future of the country, the future of science and technology. We celebrate the future of the country with science,” he said. As well, the Rocky Mountain Federation of Mineralogical Societies surprised Veatch with a engraved plaque as a tribute for his work with the Pebble Pups. At this, Veatch was overcome with emotion. The celebration wrapped up with cake and hot chocolate in the yurt. Along with the celebration for students and parents, the morning included Woline’s enthusiastic preview of the exhibits to be installed at the new Visitors’ Center at the Monument. A grand opening is scheduled for June 15.

Civil-unions bill moves ahead Bill would not allow adoption agencies to opt out By Vic Vela

vvela@ourcoloradonews. com Jeremy Simon is only 5 years old, but his knowledge of what was happening inside a Colorado Capitol committee hearing room Jan. 23 might already make him qualified to teach a civics class. “They’re trying to change the law,” he said, when asked what was happening that day. And what makes the law important? “So my moms can be together,” Jeremy said. Young Jeremy was one of many people who packed the Old Supreme Court Chambers inside the Capitol to hear, and to provide testimony on, what has long been a contentious issue: civil unions for gay couples. As expected, the bill — which would allow gay couples to enter into commitments that are similar to marriage — passed the five-member Senate Judiciary Committee along party lines, following a hearing that lasted more than four hours. The bill will now head to another committee in the Senate and is expected to ultimately become law, because of the Democratic-controlled Legislature. The bill’s sponsor, openly gay Sen. Pat Steadman, D-Denver, whose district includes part of Arapahoe County, said the legislation would recognize “the love between committed couples.” “When two people are lucky enough to have found someone they want to spend the rest of their lives with, why should the state of Colorado stand in the way?” Steadman said during his testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee. The bill could allow gay couples to begin the steps of entering into civil unions on May 1. They would be afforded many legal, medical and property rights, as well as the ability to adopt children. However, the bill does not allow gay couples in civil unions to file joint tax returns, at least until “statutory change is enacted,” according to the bill. Last year’s version of the bill died in a separate, Republican-controlled committee. “Today, you have the opportunity to finish what should have been started nine months ago,” said Brad Clark of Colorado One, a gay, bisexual and transgender advocacy group. Clark was one of many people who testified in

support of the bill, several of whom offered emotional stories of having first met their partners several years ago — 17 years for Brian Bowles of Denver. “This is a human issue,” Bowles testified. “The greatest thing we have is love.” Jean Fredland of Adams County testified that, to her knowledge, none of her children or grandchildren is gay. But she equated the battle over civil unions as “a civil rights issue,” and said the opposition to the bill is offering “the same arguments I heard against civil rights in the ‘60s and ‘70s.” Meanwhile, there were plenty of critics who spoke out against the bill. And they were particularly upset that — unlike last year’s version — the bill does not exempt adoption agencies with religious convictions against same-sex unions from placing children with those couples. Kellie Fiedorek of the conservative, Arizonabased Alliance Defending Freedom, said judges and business owners who object to civil unions would be forced “to violate their deeply held religious convictions,” if the bill passed. Others who are against the bill were blunter in their opposition. Lisa Speer of Arapahoe County called the legislation “a canard.” “This legislation is all heart and no head,” she said. Republican committee member Steve King of Grand Junction — who, along with Republican Sen. Kevin Lundberg of Berthoud voted against moving the bill forward — asked Steadman, “Wouldn’t it be better to amend the bill to accommodate the religious beliefs of these people?” Steadman replied that he wouldn’t want to “enable businesses to put up signs outside their windows saying certain types of people aren’t welcome.” Steadman also brought up the point to some who testified that it wouldn’t matter if he amended the bill because they wouldn’t support it anyway. In spite of vocal opposition, the legislation is expected to pass easily this session, something that Democratic Sen. Jessie Ulibarri of Commerce City — who chaired Wednesday’s committee — says he will take pride in. Ulibarri lives with his partner and two children, and has testified every time the bill has come up, only to walk away disappointed. The day before the hearing, Ulibarri was asked what’s it’s like to go from testifying, to holding the gavel that chairs the same committee. He replied: “Overwhelming … in the best possible sense.”

Divisions persist in marijuana’s impact on kids Experts, officials split on Amendment 64’s effects on children By Darin Moriki

dmoriki@ourcoloradonews.com As talks continue on how to regulate and administer new, voter-approved laws that legalize recreational marijuana use, deeply divided arguments persist on how it will affect those who are not even old enough to purchase the federallybanned substance. These new laws, created by the passage of Amendment 64 in the general election, permits anyone 21 years old or older to possess and consume up to one ounce of marijuana and allows for marijuana’s consumption in so far as it is not “conducted openly and publically or in a manner that endangers others.” Amendment 64 proponents say marijuana’s effects on children are negligible and that much of the onus associated with its use will be placed in the hands of those old enough to purchase it, while opponents say the laws will ultimately amplify troubling effects already seen by marijuana use in children, such as truancy and harsh drug use. Hoffman said she is especially concerned, since the organization’s annual Adams County Student Survey has illustrated an upward trend in illicit marijuana use over the past five years. She said this trend has also shown that children who self-reported their marijuana use are five times as likely to abuse prescription drugs and that those high schools with the

highest self-reported marijuana use had the lowest graduation rates. “Our concern is that even though Amendment 64 claims that it won’t get into the hand of kids, we have the facts here in Adams County to say that it is,” Hoffman said. “When you’re looking at the facts in Adams County, we feel like it’s a barrier for student success in a lot of cases.” However, not everyone agrees. Marijuana Policy Project spokesman Mason Tvert said the new laws will put a stop to underground marijuana markets that made it difficult to track the types of products available to consumers and distributors. To curb underage use, Tvert said parents should continue to be judicious with their marijuana use and exercise precautions used to keep items like alcohol, cigarettes and guns out of their child’s hands. “Right now, marijuana is considered to be universally available to teenagers,” Tvert said. “The goal of marijuana prohibition was to keep marijuana out of teenagers’ hands, but because they had universal access to it and reported that they could access it easier than alcohol, that is a sign of failed policy.” Jefferson County Public Schools spokeswoman Melissa Reeves said the school district did not take a stance on Amendment 64 leading up to the general election and that school officials and board members have expressed no concerns on the new marijuana laws

and its potential effects on students. >>CUT HERE FOR SPACE<< Hoffman said she and health professionals are currently working on an anti-drug campaign targeting prescription drug use among teens but are fighting a frustrating uphill battle on the heels of Amendment 64’s passage. In all, official numbers show that 55.32 percent of Coloradoans voted in favor of the measure in the general election. “At the end of the day, the message to the voters and our young people is that possibly marijuana has no harmful impacts on students being successful,” Hoffman said. “We’re work-

ing on it, but we fell short in the last election.” Tvert said some marijuana opponents may change their minds over time as the Legislature continues to define regulations on some of the nation’s newest marijuana laws. “The people who have such a significant level of concern that they think that we need to keep marijuana illegal are in the minority,” Tvert said. “That is no longer the status quo. Just as we saw people criminalize alcohol and then recognize that the prohibition was causing far more problems than the actual substance… the same thing is happening with marijuana.”

Students hit ropes for heart Summit Sky Skippers demonstrate skills to Cresson kids By Norma Engelberg

nengelberg@ourcoloradonews. com The Summit Elementary School Sky Skippers visited Cresson Elementary School in Cripple Creek to build enthusiasm for the annual Jump Rope for Heart event Feb. 15. For the past seven years members of the Sky Skippers jump roping club have been teaching the art of jumping rope. The skippers meet once a week before school and its members range in grade from kindergarten to fifth. Summit physical education teacher Sue Wright and two helpers, third-grade teachers Jennie Barnes and Lesa Egalite, took 33 members of the 35-member club to Cripple Creek to demonstrate their jump rope talents for the Cresson students attending the schools second quarter Positive Behavior Assembly on Jan. 24.

A few of the students demonstrated advanced skills including leg over and double-unders leg over cross. Students also demonstrated Double Dutch jump rope steps using

two ropes. The skippers then invited some of the Cresson students and staff members, including Principal Miriam Mondragon, into the center of the gym for 30 seconds of speed jumping. Wright explained that jumping rope is a great way for students to keep their hearts healthy. “You need to eat healthy foods,

Hancock building toward big things Woodland Park sophomore keeps improving, eyes a state run By Danny Summers

sports@ourcoloradonews.com WODLAND PARK - Something clicked for Tommy Hancock as a freshman and he hasn’t been the same wrestler since. “I was at a (junior varsity) tournament and I lost really badly to a kid I shouldn’t have lost to,” Hancock said. “That frustrated me. I realized that this is tough. I realized I have to come with everything. I have to get better.” Hancock is a now a sophomore and one of the top wrestlers for Woodland Park High School. The 113-pounder has a 17-11 record (1-2 at last weekend’s Metro League Championships) and is aiming for a spot at next month’s state wrestling tournament at the Pepsi Center in Denver. “I definitely plan on going to state this year,” Hancock said. “I’ll have to do a lot of work to place. Next year I definitely plan on placing and being a state champion when I’m a senior.” Hancock’s confidence comes from making huge improvements in his style and technique. “I think Tommy is realizing how good he can be,” said Woodland Park coach Keith Sieracki. “But there are still areas he needs to improve on. “He can wrestle like a champ the first period, but he slows up a little in the second and third periods. He hasn’t figured out how to keep that pace for six minutes.”

Kids in Hancock’s class are quick and fast. The 113-pound division is one of the more exciting weight classes because a match can turn in an instant. “Little guys wrestle fast and you have to be going all the time,” Sieracki said. “You have to be able to break a guy. You have to be able to snap them. You get to the second and third periods and all the technique goes out the window.” Hancock finished his freshman year with a losing record, so he committed himself to a tough offseason program. He wrestled all summer and fall under the guidance of Sieracki through Sieracki’s Mat Masters club team. “I see him as the key to my success,” said Hancock about the former United States Greco-Roman champion. “I take everything from him.” Hancock also takes notes from some of his Woodland Park teammates, like 160-pounder Thomas Chisholm (27-6), who finished sixth at the Metro League Championships. “Thomas is a pretty inspirational wrestler,” Hancock said. “I really try to take his knowledge of how he looks at these fighting sports. He knows where his body is all the time and takes advantage of it.” Hancock’s usual workout partner is fellow sophomore Jesse Weatherill (126 pounds, 18-12 record). Hancock and Weatherill were the only freshmen on varsity last season. Weatherill was one match away from placing at the Metro League Championships. Sieracki regards the youngsters as a main force in the future success of the program. “From where Tommy and Jesse came from last year they are

Tommy Hancock, top, is off to a 17-11 start this season. File photo amazing,” Sieracki said. “Last year they were trying to figure out the difference between eighth grade wrestling and high school wrestling. These year they both put injuries aside and everything else and put wrestling first. “They both have a huge learning curve, but they’re closing the gap. I can almost guarantee that both of them will be in the state tournament next year.” Hancock, of course, is planning to make a state run this year. “The future of this program is pretty bright,” he said. “I’m very excited to be part of it.”

Tim Yount takes his passion for wrestling to the people

ng mmit By Danny Summers

sports@ourcoloradonews.com COLORADO SPRINGS - To suggest that Tim Yount is passionate about high school wrestling is missing the mark. He’s downright loony. “I’ve been watching the sport for 43 years of my life,” said Yount, 47, who resides in Monument. “I know strengths, moves, tendencies. I’ve seen the changes in the sport. It’s a joy to be engaged in this sport at this level.” Yount’s On The Mat wrestling rankings are like the BCS rankings for high school wrestlers in Colorado. He is considered the ultimate source for those seeking in depth information and the latest trends. He’s been breaking down information and delivering it to coaches, players and the media for 19 years. “He’s called me on the phone and emailed me,” said first-year Palmer Ridge

coach Paul Gagich. “As soon as I get the information I forward it to him and he does his magic. The time and effort he puts forward is insane.” By day - upwards of 65 hours a week - Yount is the work-aholic Chief Operating Officer of USA Triathlon, based in the Rockrimmon area of Colorado Springs. By night - and by weekends - he is the obsessive compulsive wrestling stat junkie. “I give every hour outside of work to this,” said Yount, who was at the Friday portion of last weekend’s Metro League Championships at Doherty. “It’s the most insane life that I have for two-and-a-half month. It’s almost like being a coach. “I’m usually home by 7-7:30, have a quick dinner with my wife (Sarah) and twoand-a-half-year-old-old son (Samuel) and then I’m on the computer at 8 p.m. and work until midnight. And then I do it all over again the next day.” Yount, who also keeps in shape by train-

ing 10 hours a week, will do just about anything and go anywhere to take in a good prep wrestling match. Every weekend he can be found at a tournament, talking with coaches and evaluating wrestlers. When he walks into a gymnasium he immediately commands respect. Still, there are some coaches who have yet to meet him in person. “I don’t even know what he looks, but I know a lot about him,” said Woodland Park coach Keith Sieracki, a two-time United States Greco-Roman champion. “He seems to be pretty spot-on. His rankings give us an assessment of what we’re getting into. When he ranks a guy in the top 10 he’s probably a pretty good wrestler.” Yount is arguably the king of his high school wrestling rankings in Colorado. The Colorado High School Activities Association takes their lead from him. Yount has more information (he puts 1,600 entries into his data base each week) at his fingertips than

a sane person should have within his reach. He compiles statistics, tracks trends and seeks insight from coaches on thousands of wrestlers in the state. And he does it all because he loves the sport. “I’m fortunate that I have an understanding wife,” Yount said. Yount would like to see the sport grow. He envisions a state team dual meet wrestling tournament so that a true champion can be crowned. “Sixteen states have a dual team championships now. Colorado needs to get on board,” he said. Sieracki, a native of Wisconsin and former high school state champion, likes the idea. “They do it in Wisconsin and I love it,” he said. “A state dual meet would give you a fresh look at who you’ll see at state two weeks later.” To subscribe to Yount’s rankings, go to www.cowrestling.com.

2012-13 flu season reaches epidemic level Never to late to be immunized By Norma Engelberg

nengelberg@ourcoloradonews.com It’s called seasonal flu because it comes every year but each season is different. The 2011-12 flu season started late and was considered relatively mild. The 2012-13 started much earlier and has been more virulent than usual. Comparing seasons, last year’s flu, following on the heels of an influenza pandemic, didn’t get started until late January and it was over quickly. This year’s season started in October and the number of influenza-like-illnesses, usually abbreviated

ILI, reached the epidemic baseline by midNovember. The entire 2011-12 season from January to mid-May saw 34 influenza-related pediatric deaths. So far, this season, 37 infants have died between October and mid January. In a typical year, flu season lasts through May and peaks from January to March. According to the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment influenza report for the week ending Jan. 19 (Week 3), influenza season officially began on Oct. 7 and influenza rates have been elevated for much of the season. During Week 3, there were 119 new hospitalizations for a cumulative 789 hospitalizations and one new pediatric death, bringing the state total to five.

El Paso County has had 67 ILI hospitalizations since the beginning of flu season and Teller County has had only three such hospitalizations. The majority of cases don’t require hospitalizations so the number of actual cases is much larger. This year’s national statistics show that older adults account for 60 percent of hospitalizations and 90 percent of fatalities. “The overall picture is clear,” said Dr. Lyn Finelli, Surveillance and Outbreak Response Team leader in CDC’s Influenza Division. “This season is severe for seniors (65 and older), who are being hit hardest in terms of serious illnesses and deaths. It’s really important that these people seek care and get treated promptly.” Prompt treatment includes the use of

Address wildfire mitigation now Winter offers best time to prepare homes, communities Special to The Courier

Colorado State Forest Service With the ongoing drought, low snowpack, recent brush fires and Red Flag Warnings in effect along the Front Range, the Colorado State Forest Service reminds landowners to prepare their homes and communities now for possible wildfire. “Although there is no guarantee firefighters will be able to save your home during a wildfire, the odds increase if you follow the best-available mitigation guidelines,” said Lisa Mason, outreach forester for the state forest service and Colorado’s “Are You FireWise?” program manager. “It’s a good idea to get started now, before wildfire danger increases this spring.” The service recently updated its two principal guides for pro-

tecting property from wildfire. “FireWise Construction: Site Design & Building Materials” and “Protecting Your Home from Wildfire: Creating Wildfire-Defensible Zones” were developed by experts in the fields of wildfire behavior and FireWise construction practices. Although much of the information in the guides was unmodified from previous years, several important changes were made based on lessons learned from recent wildfires in the wildlandurban interface. Among these changes is an added emphasis on: The ongoing need for yearround maintenance of surface fuels around the home, such as mowing grass and raking up thick beds of pine needles. The importance of keeping gutters, decks and roofs free of pine needles and other combus-

tibles year-round. Understanding how wildfires may start from burning ember showers, and not just direct heat and flame. Describing fuels mitigation in specific forest types The revised property protection guidelines, as well as information on developing Community Wildfire Protection Plans, are available at CSFS district offices or on the CSFS website at www. csfs.colostate.edu. The Colorado State Forest Service continues to be the lead state agency for providing forest stewardship and wildfire mitigation assistance to private landowners, following legislation in 2012 that transferred responsibility for wildfire command and control from the CSFS to the newly formed Division of Fire Prevention and Control.

anti-viral medications, which have been shown to stop the flu or limit its severity but only if taken as soon after symptoms appear. Treatment is good but prevention is better. Prevention includes regular hand washing and avoiding ill people but the best prevention, according to the CDC, is getting an annual flu shot in September or October. Those who missed the shot at the beginning of the season can still benefit; medical officials say that as long as vaccine supplies are available it’s never too late to get the shot. Shots are available at doctors’ offices, local pharmacies and a host of other venues. To find a flu-shot clinic anywhere in the United States, visit http://flushot.healthmap.org/.
