email@example.com As severe drought slams up against predictions of dangerous rainstorms, the town of Green Mountain Falls is vulnerable to both. With funds from an anonymous donor, the public works department is removing barriers in the town’s right-of-ways. “The whole point is to make
the roadways safe, safety devices visible and access to hydrants better,” said Rob McArthur, the department’s director. “We’re just fortunate to have the funds to be able to do this.” The project gets into full swing June 4, beginning with the roads on the east side of town and gradually moving west to finally mitigate every road in a three-year project.
‘If an emergency response vehicle can get where they need to go, so can everybody else.’ Rob McArthur, department director

Courtesy photo While last year’s week-long evacuation during the Waldo Canyon Fire was successful, this project is designed to make the ingress-egress routes safer and more effective for the police and fire departments, McArthur said. “If emergency response vehicles can get where they need to go, so can everybody else,” he said. “That’s always been our priority, whether it’s tree mitigation, dirt
work or snow plowing, with the residual benefits for the residents and taxpayers.” There’s a two-fold benefit to the project. “This is a way for us to put some kids to work, to use that energy and effort for the betterment of the community,” McArthur said. “We’re hiring college kids who are local, some who graduated from Manitou Springs High School.”
To ensure adherence to forestry regulations, Jinnie Grigsby, the town’s forestry technician, is overseeing the project. “If we have to limb-out a tree she’ll be there to make sure it’s done properly,” McArthur said. Quizzed for the identity of the donor, McArthur said, “It’s an organization that is very much interested in the wellbeing of the region.”
From brown water to sinkhole, district woes persist By Pat Hill
firstname.lastname@example.org Troubles keep mounting for the Florissant Water & Sanitation District when a water main broke the afternoon of May 7. By the time officials turned off the main, 80,000 gallons of chlorinated water had flooded the road at Hillside Drive and left a cavernous sinkhole. “Nobody could get the water main turned off,” said Jeff McCammon, who is concerned that his entire house will slide down the hillside. “Our house is literally on stilts.” Happens every time.

Nonetheless, the McCammon home is the poster child for what has gone wrong with the water company. Cited by the Water Quality Division of Colorado’s public health department, the district has consistently dispensed brown water to its customers. With a meeting at 6 p.m. May 14 of the district board, customers are hoping to find solutions, to the perennial freeze problem as well as the brown water.

email@example.com Road work on U.S. 24 in Woodland Park will start soon on streets surrounding Woodland Station, according to Woodland Park Office of Economic and Downtown Development Director Brian Fleer. He gave an update to the Downtown Development Authority board on May 7. Barrels and barricades are visible at Park Street and U.S. 24 where construction will soon begin on a dedicated right-turn lane and a dedicated left-turn lane. The city is also working with Tom Lichina, owner of an auto repair shop behind the ditch on Park Street. The ditch will be filled in, creating two additional public parking spaces. “Our next focus will be on Center Street and then South Street,” Fleer said. “We’re staying close to merchants on the construction and taking barricades down
on weekends.” The Woodland Park Downtown Development Authority is working with developers and contractors on several projects in the station where Woodland Hardware is still on schedule for a late 2013 or early 2014 opening. Two other Woodland Station lots are also under consideration. Local developer Arden Weatherford and Kip Unruh, owner of Main Street Property in Kansas City, Mo., are collaborating on developing Lot 2 where Weatherford is planning to open a beer garden this summer. Bob and Carol Korzekwa are still working on an entertainment center/ bowling alley on Lot 3. The exclusivity contract they signed earlier this year has run out and Fleer said there is enough interest in Lot 3 that he is not inclined to extend their contract. “Once they finish their feasibility study they can come back to us,” he said, adding that the Korzekwas are out of the country, working on a military contract in Guam.

took some people by surprise. At the April authority meeting Fleer said the store probably wouldn’t open until later in May. The gas station/convenience store, known locally as Traveler’s Gourmet, Mountain Mercantile or the Cenex station, is up for sale by the owners. “It will probably become a retail shop,” Fleer said. “They’re offering a good price for the right group.” The city has ordered 80 banners to be hung from light poles in the downtown area. There are a variety of themes that can be changed throughout the year. “Our beautification committee has worked on this for months,” Fleer said. “The banners should start going up the first week in June…We’re also working with MES Jim Siebert to revisit the design standards for Woodland Station…and the (Colorado) Main Street program people will be here June 24-25 to conduct a downtown assessment. They will meet with all the downtown stakeholders they can. We’ll be submitting our Main Street application in July.”

Recent storms increase snowpack inches Drought forecasted to continue By Norma Engelberg
nengelberg@ourcoloradonews. com According to the Colorado Snotel Snowpack Report for the week ending May 3, recent storms have increased snowpack in several of the state’s river basins. The Upper Colorado, South Platte, Laramie and North Platte and Yampa/White River Basins are currently between 103 and 95 percent of median. The Gunnison and Arkansas River Basins are hitting at about 75 percent of median and the Upper Rio Grande and San Miguel, Dolores, Animas and san Juan basins are 41 percent of median or less. A report from the Natural Resource Conservation Service in April said the snowpack is holding steady in all but those river basins located in southwestern Colorado. The U.S. Drought monitor through April 30 is also showing some improvements to the drought situation in northern and northeastern Colorado, but its report is tempered by the fact that areas of severe, extreme and exceptional drought are still growing in the southeastern part of the
The U.S. Drought Monitor map of Colorado shows that drought conditions continue across El Paso and Teller counties, prompting local governments to implement water restrictions and encourage continued water conservation. Courtesy photo, U.S. Drought Monitor, University of Nebraska, Lincoln state. According to the U.S. Drought Monitor Map for Colorado, Teller County and El Paso County
are both part of that spreading drought area. Teller is mostly D-3 (extreme drought) with a small section of
D-2 (severe drought) in its northern reaches. El Paso County has a sliver of D-2 in the northwest and a sliver of D-4 (exceptional
drought) in the southeast. The rest of the county is D-3. That’s why cities and towns across the region are mplementing water restrictions and encouraging residents to conserve water in other ways, as well. Colorado Springs moved to a two-day-aweek watering schedule more than a month ago and Woodland Park will implement a similar schedule on May 9. These drought designations also do not bode well for hay and feed prices later this year and, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the high hay prices that became common in 2012 are likely to continue in 2013. However, improved snowpack and strict water conservation will not change the fact that Colorado has a semi-arid climate where drought it the norm rather than the exception. The National Atmospheric and Oceanic Administration says weather determines what a person is wearing today, a sweater or a sleeveless shirt; while climate determines how many sweaters or sleeveless shirts are in that person’s closet. The state recently opened the Colorado Drought Response Portal, www.coh2o.co, where visitors can find information on drought and water conservation and where communities that choose to participate can post watering restriction information.

Preliminary reading assessment scores released RE-2 concerned about third-grade readers By Norma Engelberg
firstname.lastname@example.org Colorado third-grade teachers are under a lot of pressure when it comes to reading because that’s the year elementary-school students take their first state assessment tests. According to this year’s extremely preliminary Transitional Colorado Assessment
Program third-grade reading scores for the Woodland Park RE-2 School District, Columbine and Gateway third-graders still scored well above the state average on the test, which was administered in February, but Summit third-graders scored slightly below the state average. All three schools’ test scores were lower than last year’s scores but for a second year Columbine thirdgraders’ outscored the other schools. “That shows that Columbine isn’t a onehit-wonder,” said district Superintendent Jed Bowman at the May 8 school board meeting.
Part of the problem for small rural school districts is that when there are small numbers of students, every test score carries more weight in the total score, Bowman said. “The high 70s (percent proficient and advanced) is not good enough,” he said. “But we need to be careful not to read too much into this, yet…there’s a lot of information you don’t see here.” For example, the scores don’t take into account the fact that in all three schools two/thirds of third-graders are boys. “In most of the bigger districts, the gen-
der ratio is 50/50,” he said. “We need to compare our scores to those of other districts that have a 60/40 gender ratio. It’s typical for girls to score better in reading at that age.” That being said, however, he pointed out that at Summit the boys outscored better the girls. “All this data is just making me ask more questions,” Bowman said, adding that final scores will be made public by the state next fall. “We need more analysis.”
New Summit principal named Aspen Mine Center hosts fundraiser Preliminary TCAP scores arrive at RE-2 By Norma Engelberg
email@example.com The Woodland Park RE-2 School District board announced the hiring of two administrators. One of these is just a change in position for someone who has worked in the district for 18 years. The other will replace out-going Summit Elementary School Principal Eric Owen. For eight years Tina Cassens was the assistant principal at Woodland Park Middle School. Before that she worked four years in the school’s Information Resources and Technology and six years teaching seventhgrade math. Now she is moving out of the middle school to become the district’s Director of Educational Effectiveness and Information Technologies, replacing Jeff Gatlin. Katie Rexford also was an assistant principal before landing a position as the Summit Elementary School principal but not in the RE-2 district. She moved to Colorado from Buffalo, N.Y., and taught math at Liberty High School in Colorado Springs, where she later became an assistant principal. Both Cassens and Rexford were introduced at the May 8 regular school board meeting. The meeting also provided an opportunity for Woodland Park High School senior Alyssa Meier to present her Bear Mitigation program. This was the same presentation she gave to Woodland Park City Council earlier this year. She started working on the bear project as an independent study program with

Colorado Parks and Wildlife. “When I started this project, it never occurred to me that people didn’t think that bears getting into their trash is a problem,” she said. “Even kids connect bears with eating trash.” She encouraged district parents to go to Woodland Park’s Bear Aware Facebook page, www.facebook.com/BearAwareWP, for more information. Meier plans to attend Colorado State University-Ft. Collins become a wildlife biologist. Superintendent Jed Bowman talked about the school profile, which shows that the number of elementary students getting free or reduced lunches has risen from 23 percent of students a few years ago to 34 percent this year: 47 percent at Summit Elementary School, 40 percent at Gateway and 24 percent at Columbine. “This shows we’re not as affluent as people think,” said board President Amy Nieman. Bowman said the number of students getting help in upper grades would be higher if it weren’t so hard to get parents to fill out the paperwork. Bowman also gave a legislative report and talked about the state’s new school finance act that will likely go to voters this fall. The act adds $1 billion to school funding, which if approved could add about $750 per pupil to the school budget in 2016. “This is going to be a heavy duty campaign,” Bowman said. “People are already taking sides and fundraising has started.” “It’s too bad we can’t take that money and give it to the schools,” said school board director Rick Wetzel. The school board will be discussing next year’s preliminary budget at its regular meeting on June 12 and at a special meeting on June 26.

The theater and displays are a wonderful introduction to the best part of the park - exploring the fossils and trails outside.” The new building also houses a paleontology research and storage facility. The new space will allow the park staff to better protect thousands of fragile fossils now kept in other park buildings that do not meet collection storage standards. The celebration begins with a ribboncutting ceremony at 10 a.m. June 14 and continues throughout the weekend, with free admission for all.

With eloquence and powerful statements about the political process in Colorado, Teller County commissioners Dave Paul and Norm Steen approved the prohibition of recreational marijuana, including retail sales, cultivation, manufacturing and testing. At the May 9 commission meeting, Dettenrieder veered off from his colleagues and voted no; nonetheless, the ordinance passed. “I recognize the fact that marijuana is illegal at the federal level and understand there is a clear conflict between our state constitution and federal law,” Dettenrieder said. To complicate the issue, the federal government has not been entirely clear on its approach to medical or recreational marijuana, he said. Disgusted over the political process in Colorado, Dettenrieder railed against the fluidity of the state’s constitution. “I do not care for the fact that the Colorado state constitution is one of the easiest to amend in endsthe union,” he said. “I also
do not like the fact that outside interests threw a ton of money in Colorado supporting the Amendment 64 campaign.” Leading up to his negative vote, Dettenrieider explained. “I am conservative, pro-business, believe in limited government, less regulation, local decisionmaking, economic freedom and individual liberties,” he said. “I believe that in representative government, the will of the people reigns. The people of Colorado voted for Amendment 64, in Teller County, by approximately 52 percent.” For this commissioner, the conflict between opinion and duty led to the vote. “I could do without retail marijuana in Teller County, but, in this case, my personal view comes second, the majority view comes first,” he said. “In line with my political philosophy, the people spoke so I cannot stand in support of the ordinance as written.” Before voting no, Dettenrieder took another dig at the initiative process in Colorado. “I still cannot get my head around this, that we can put a ballot initiative at the state level when the subject matter is illegal at the federal level,” he

‘It may threaten its survival because now people can buy marijuana recreationally at a far lower price.’ Norm Steen said. “But, you know what? It’s the reality, here where we are and I’m flummoxed, okay?” Wrapping up what he termed his “spiel” Dettenrieder directed the staff to study the tax question that will appear on the November ballot. No less opinionated, Paul offered an alternative view of the statewide voter to approve the use and cultivation of recreational marijuana. “In reference to Amendment 64, which was a democratic ideal, as Marc pointed out, we are in fact a republic,” Paul said. Paul, too, took a potshot at the initiative process. “We get elected to go through stacks of paperwork, dig deep into these things because it’s not just a simple

vote of the people for everything,” he said. “If we were going to live by that there would be no sense in having a legislature, a governor or a county commission.” In relating the marijuana issue to the republican form of government, Paul talked about the influence of special interests. “It would just be `okay we want to do this, put it on the ballot, majority rules’, that’s it,” he said. “That’s not the way our system of government is. And I don’t think that system would necessarily work that well, especially with the amount of influence that
does get brought in from people who don’t live here.” Before voting, Paul referred to the veiled threat of federal enforcement, highlighting the letter sent in 2011 by the Department of Justice. “I think that was pretty good guidance. To a certain degree we are going to throw that guidance to the side because of the medical marijuana which we already have,” he said. In voting to approve the prohibition ordinance, Paul’s s vote complies with the opt-out option for local governments. Steen, on the other hand, expressed concern about the taxing issue, which will be left up to the voters in November. As well, Steen commented on the numbers. Of 11,909 votes, the difference between approving and denying recreational marijuana was 341 votes. “I still see this issue as nearly 50/50 in Teller County, not a mandate,” Steen said. If voters deny the tax is-
sue in November, the denial could have wide-range repercussions for the county. “In Teller County, it could be costly, enforcing and monitoring the law, without any funding,” he said. In fact, while Amendment 64 does not affect the sale of medical marijuana, the law could have an impact nonetheless on that industry. “It may threaten its survival because now people can buy marijuana recreationally at a far lower price,” he said. “You can’t miss the point about all those people in Colorado doing a great job professionally, so I see the recreational marijuana as a negative.” On another issue, Steen threw cold water on the supposed auxiliary benefit for school funding. “The amendment supports the capital construction assistance fund; there are no capital construction projects planned in Teller County,” he said.

Officer’s Last Call in Big Thompson Canyon “I’m stuck, I’m right in the middle of it, I can’t get out...about half mile East of Drake on the highway. Tell them to get out of the low area down below. And soon as the water starts picking up … (static)… high ground… “ Colorado State Highway Patrol Sergeant Hugh Purdy’s last radio transmission at 9:15 on July 31, 1976, recorded by a dispatcher in Greeley. A fierce, sudden, but long-lasting, thunderstorm dumped nearly 12 inches of rain in four hours in the Big Thompson River watershed on the eve of the Colorado Centennial celebration. The river rose 19 feet above normal and raged through the narrow canyon killing 144 people, destroying 418 private residences and 52 businesses (138 other homes had additional harm), accounting for more than $35.5 million in damage. This earned it the title of the worst natural disaster in Colorado history. Sergeant Hugh Purdy was off duty and had been watching the Olympics with his wife at their home in Loveland, but was called by dispatcher Jay Lorance, when two of the men under his supervision were dispatched at either end of the canyon upon initial reports of rockslides on U.S. 36, according to David McComb’s 1980 book “Big Thompson: Profile of a Natural Disaster”. Officer William Miller, who was at the upper end of the canyon near Estes Park,
responded to a citizen’s report of rocks in the highway and Officer Tim Littlejohn, who, at the time of the call, was cruising just south of Fort Collins was asked to assist. Miller became the first to officially report flash flooding when he radioed the following from the upper end of the canyon. “Advise, we have a flood. The whole mountainside is gone. We have people trapped on the other side. I’m going to have to move out. I’m up to my doors in water! Advise, we can’t get to them. I’m going to get out of here before I drown!” Miller was able to abandon his car and scramble up the hillside to high ground and relative safety. At about the same time Miller was reporting this, Purdy asked Officer Littlejohn, who had made as far as Drake in the can-
Bumper stickers say a lot about us Bumper stickers are disappearing but they’re not entirely gone. Magnetic bumper stickers and window decals are still here but most people don’t bother. Honest-to-goodness-stick-it-on-yourvehicle-and-never-get-it-off bumper stickers say a lot about vehicle owners. First, that they are willing to post their feelings semi-permanently in a place strangers can see. Second, there’s the message itself. “I brake for no apparent reason!” says the vehicle owner might be tired of being tailgated. “Ex-lovers make excellent speed bumps!” likely means the owner is disappointed in love. Some stickers are all about recent political affiliations, although I have seen stickers from long-past elections, including a few about Kennedy and Camelot, Reagan and even one “I Like Ike” sticker. Nixon and Carter stickers don’t seem to have this longevity. Other stickers tell of academic affiliations. I have a “Colorado State University Alumni Association” decal on my car. I used to have a window decal that said “Vulcan Science Academy” and it was great fun to tell non-Trekkies they can find it by taking a left at Albuquerque. Then there are sports teams. Most tout the major league teams like the Rockies, Broncos, Avalanche and Nuggets. Others are a little more obscure. I didn’t know that Denver had a professional Lacrosse team until I saw “Denver Outlaws” on a cap. I’m sure Lacrosse stickers can’t be far behind. I’ve seen stickers that take sides, such as “Ban mining: let the *#$#% freeze in the Dark,” “Earth First: we’ll strip-mine the other planets later,” “Make love not war” and “Nuke ‘em all and let God sort ‘em out.” There are a lot of variations on the
theme: “What would (fill in the blank) do?” I’ve seen the blank filled with Jesus, Xena Warrior Princess, Jimmy Buffett, Gandalf, Capt. Picard, Capt. Kirk, Lady Macbeth, Robin Hood, a variety of politicians (shouldn’t you really be asking “What wouldn’t said politician do?”) and sometimes “my dog,” “my cat” or even “my parrot.” Then there are the stickers that say they’re proud of their honor student, Boy or Girl Scout or their military son or daughter. Other stickers say their child can beat up your honor student, Boy Scout or Girl Scout. So far, I haven’t seen any stickers saying their kid can beat up your U.S. Marine or U.S. Army Soldier. Then there are literary stickers, including: “Not all those who wander are lost,” “I am an Elizabeth in a Darcy-less world” and “Like totally never, ever, mor.” Sometimes stickers don’t say as much about the owner as you might think. For example, my car has a sticker that says “I’m Marching to a Different Accordion.” This might make you think I’m pretty nonconformist but I actually conform to a lot of mainstream ideologies. I’m just not telling you what they are. I do, however, believe my sticker that says: “No Farms! No Food!” So, are you willing to share your feelings with the world? Get a bumper sticker, magnet or window decal!

yon, to stop and setup a roadblock to turn travelers back down the highway. Meanwhile, Purdy continued on toward Drake. Littlejohn armed with his loudspeaker and flashing lights tried to warn people in Drake to flee for their lives. In his car pushing through the high water, he was able to make it up the grade to Glen Haven. “The officer kept his wheels ahead of the water as it covered the roadway. He could hear the deep rumble of large boulders as they ground together in the dark water, the clatter of rocks bounding off cliff sides, and the splintering of wooden houses. Over his radio he briefly talked to his Sergeant,” wrote McComb. Purdy continued on to see for himself what those under his charge were reporting, but ordered an officer following to turn back and cut off entry into the canyon from below. At 9 p.m. Purdy warned of a sudden rise in the river and told the Patrol to warn those in Loveland and below the narrows of the coming surge. His next and final transmission told of his own dire circumstances. Purdy’s car was found crushed under a slide of rock and mud near his last known location, two miles downstream from Drake, along with eight other cars. According to highway patrol reports, the only item that allowed identification of the patrol car was key ring found still in
the ignition. His body was discovered on a sandbar, eight miles downstream. Officer Littlejohn was able to get his patrol car to high ground and spent the night in Drake helping as he could in the aftermath of the deluge. Later, his car became a focal point for the helicopter evacuation. “I’m grieved when I think I didn’t save more people, but how could I imagine what was coming down? I had trouble getting people to believe the feeble excuses I had, much less something of that magnitude. Now, I regret turning people back down the canyon, because we all know that anyone caught in the canyon had no chance. There was no way to foresee where the danger zones would be. Nobody really knew until it got there,” Littlejohn related in an oral history interview afterwards. “The wall of water moved so fast that, even had Highway 34 not been washed out, the only avenue of escape was up the canyon walls. Vehicles and buildings became death traps for unsuspecting campers,” according to reports by National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Of those killed, 41 lived in the canyon. The rest were visitors to the area. Five victims reported as dead have never been found. One man reported as missing turned up, alive and well, living in Oklahoma in 2008.
LIBRARY NOTES Prescription Painkillers—Number one cause of accidental death in the US
Learn about what our local medical professionals are doing to address the problem The Rampart Library District hosts the Pikes Peak Regional Hospital and Teller County Public Health for the showing of the film “Deadly Dose” at 6:30 p.m. May 23 at the Woodland Park library. Colorado has the second highest rate of prescription-painkiller abuse in the nation, according to a new federal report. Only Oregon has a higher rate.Opiate-based painkiller prescriptions have quadrupled in the last decade, as doctors moved to treat chronic pain directly rather than dismiss it as a symptom. Many clients assume these drugs are relatively safe because they are pure, have legitimate uses, and are prescribed by medical professionals. The slippery slope begins when individuals become addicted or more commonly, misuse their prescription either with mixing their drugs, being careless about dosage, timing, or falsely assum-

A backpain therapy that brings satisfaction According to the American Chiropractic Association, 80 percent of Americans will experience back pain sometime in their life spending at least $50 billion a year in subsequent health care. With back pain one of the most common causes for missing work, the latest research coming out of the University of Southern Denmark could be welcomed news to our nation’s employers. The research contends that four in 10 chronic low-back-pain situations has its genesis in a bacterial infection that can be cured by a generic version of the antibiotic Augmentin. Eighty percent of the 162 participants in the 6 month study reported improvement in their chronic low back pain after taking the antibiotic three times a day for 100 days. While the researchers call for more studies to better understand the science behind the results out of Denmark, there is a modality of treatment for chronic low back pain that has enjoyed impressive success for than 100 years - Chiropractic.
The ACA defines chiropractic care as: “A health care discipline, which emphasizes the inherent recuperative power of the body to heal itself without the use of drugs or surgery. The practice of chiropractic focuses on the relationship between structure (primarily the spine) and function (as coordinated by the nervous system) and how that relationship affects the preservation and restoration of health.” Chiropractic is based on the scientific fact that the spine and nervous system are
directly linked to one’s health. The nerve impulses flow from the brain down the spinal cord, which is protected by the 24 moving bones of the spine, to every organ and tissue in the body. Nerve impulses respond back to the brain to confirm that the body is functioning properly. If there are problems with the function of these moveable spinal bones, a variety of symptoms and pain syndromes can arise. A doctor of chiropractic corrects these mechanical problems in the spine by means of manual adjustments, thereby alleviating the interference with the body’s nervous system. Chiropractors receive six years of rigorous training in the sciences and health care leading to a doctor of chiropractic degree. The major difference in the training of a D.C. and an M.D. is the method of treatment. Is chiropractic safe? Studies in both New Zealand and Great Britain have reported that, while delivering millions of adjust-
ments around the world daily, “chiropractic is remarkably safe.” The prevailing opinion among experts is that chiropractic is non-invasive therefore the body’s response to it is more predictable than its reactions to drugs or surgery. Not only is it safe, it is apparently quite effective with a nationwide Gallup poll reporting that nine of 10 chiropractic patients felt their treatment was effective. How do you know if you have a problem that can be helped by chiropractic treatment? Only a doctor of chiropractic can tell you that after a consultation and physical exam. A quick check of a local phone book will reveal a number of chiropractors, who, for the most part, offer free consultations.

The Sundance Kid and Curry brothers connection
I lived in Sundance, Wyo., for three years. That has little to do with this column but I enjoyed the movie “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.” As a train guy, I know that the train scenes in that movie are mainly fiction. They are however, based on facts as are the characters. This story connects us with that movie and one of the events. Robert Curry, alias Bob Lee, was one of the most badly wanted criminals in the area in 1899. He was captured in Cripple ally, Creek! He had been involved in the robbing m of a Union Pacific train at Wilcox, Wyo. The hom gang was chased for weeks across the state gh and finally into the Jackson Hole country in ently Wyoming, but they were lost. During the chase Sheriff Hazen of Converse County was killed by someone in the gang. After that, as you know if you’ve s seen the movie, there were some interestti- ing developments. Hundreds of detecd tives throughout the country were looking, g mainly for the Curry Brothers. The Hole in r of

February, he was located in the little town just outside Kansas City where an arrest was attempted. He escaped but was later found, shot and killed. A telegram back to Cripple Creek asked the sheriff to locate Robert Curry and arrest him. Teller County was fairly new at the time, having just been separated from El Paso County. Undersheriff Harrington, assisted by deputies Matt Deering and Joe O’Brien, found him dealing a game of stud poker in the gambling room at the Antlers saloon on Bennett Avenue. The arrest went fairly quickly, as they wanted it to go. After answering a few simple questions they were sure it was the right man. In arresting him, a search found a huge pearl handled six shooter he had hidden in his coat. Curry went along without too much trouble but was not told the full story of his arrest until he was in the jail. It was then
that they told him he would be on the way to Wyoming once the details were worked out. The Curry Brothers had a history in the Cripple Creek Mining District. They had lived in the various camps since 1894, and had made quite a few friends. They would come here to “cool off,” working in various saloons. Robert Curry said little, and was quietly taken by train up to Cheyenne a short time after his arrest. I have not followed this story to see where it goes. The story of his arrest in Cripple Creek does not say much more about the four others that took part in the train robbery, but the memory of the incident as told in the movie certainly makes it fun.

Brown rides to the rescue By Pat Hill
firstname.lastname@example.org A hero for many in Ute Pass and southern Teller County, Clay Brown spread financial optimism among the Green Mountain Falls’ trustees this month. Regional manager for the Department of Local Affairs, Brown is the go-to person for financial and technical assistance for local governments. “We are a unique beast; you won’t find a department like ours in any state government,” Brown said. At issue is the town’s grant application to DOLA to help finance the new town hall at Elk Crossing on the west side of town. The historic hall was destroyed by arson fire in February 2012. For the trustees, the burning question was whether or not the town had a chance to secure the grant in a time of steep competition. Brown offered a hint. “This is an opportunity for us to invest and help you out; we’ve invested in pretty much every town hall, especially after a disaster,” Brown said. “I think this is going to score pretty well, in several categories.” For an edge up, Brown suggested submitting the application during the second funding cycle that begins Aug. 1. “If you get the funding I write the contract and do all the disbursements,” he said. According to Rob McArthur, the project manager, the grant request will be roughly $600,000. On a positive note, with the restoration by the Colorado legislature of the state’s energy\mineral impact funds, DOLA has increased its funding base, Brown said. However, even without the energy/
mineral funds, during the lean years from 2009 to 2012, DOLA awarded $24 million in grants to projects in El Paso County and $12 million in Teller County, with leverages of $66 million and $18 million, respectively, in each county. “I spend most of my time in rural Colorado. That’s where our focus is that and where we try to invest most of our money,” Brown said. As well, DOLA grants provide an economic infusion into rural communities. “This really helps the economy, puts people to work, contractors and workers, so there’s a spinoff benefit to the community, especially when you do a big project,” Brown said. Despite the good news from Brown, the town still faces a hurdle, providing matching funds as a requirement to receive the DOLA grant. The funds could range from 25 to 40 percent of the total. To that end, trustee Jane Newberry, the public information officer for the project, has initiated a fundraising campaign, reaching out to the citizens. “This is a great time to contribute to the future of the town,” Newberry said “Every dollar gifted to the reconstruction project can give us that much more assurance of a great town hall and a lasting legacy.” Donations can be sent to Chris Frandina at Town Hall, PO Box 524, Green Mountain Falls, CO, 80819. Donations will be accepted throughout the project. While Rob Seever, local architect with Keystone Associates, has presented designs for the town hall, the bidding for architectural and engineering is open until May 31.

Homeowners turn out for Day of Service
nfluand erageBy Pat Hill ,email@example.com
s ar- A movement that began slowly otec-and slowly built to a mini-frenzy, with homeowners in Woodland dlandPark cutting, trimming and rergingmoving limbs and debris from otec-their yards. buse, Galvanized by the Waldo c vio-Canyon Fire, with memories of the Hayman Fire lingering, ones-Scott Lord and Bonnie Sumner ants;have led the charge in Woodar onland Park, inspiring their neighsses-bors to protect their homes from dan-fire with adequate defensible nts. space. Each was instrumental in having their neighborhoods, Forest rado Edge and Majestic Park, respecrging ge oftively, recognized as Firewise
Communities. As Gov. John Hickenlooper declared May 4 as Wildfire Preparedness Day of Service in Colorado, the two organizers mustered their forces for a successful day of hacking away at dangerous debris, for a project that united neighbors with a common purpose. The day began with a workshop at Northeast Teller County Fire Protection District where Dave Root, with Colorado State Forest Service, offered tips and warnings about leaving homes vulnerable. From there, at least 30 homeowners fanned out to their respective neighborhoods. Lord was properly enthusiastic to his neighbors’ response to the day of service.
“We, the Woodland Park Friends of Forest Edge, treated 7.31 acres from 9 parcels with more than 48 yards of chips removed, with 22 volunteers doing the work,” he said. “We collectively put in 188 hours, with 2 chippers and a 2-yard tandem dump truck.” With a profusion of fires in Colorado recently, Sumner was encouraged by the hiring of Patti Maguire as the Firewise advisor for the Southwest region of Colorado. “Her job is to be the liaison with the state forestry department and local fire departments to implement Firewise techniques and achieve Firewise recognition status,” Sumner said.
National and state representatives of the nonprofit Firewise organization added star power to the wildfire preparedness day May 4.

With pot legal, here come laws, regulations
Legislature wraps up work on package fromof regulation bills on in
d $12By Vic Vela es of vvela@ourcoloradonews. ly, incom
Colo- The state Legislature and may have passed rules inney,”volving sales and usage of
recreational marijuana in eco- Colorado, but that doesn’t ities.mean there aren’t unreeoplesolved issues surrounding here’sthe newly created industry. espe- Questions loom as to rownwhether voters will support
the tax model that legisla, the tors put in place to support atch- retail pot regulations, and e thewhether the federal govern-
ment will intervene. Still, lawmakers believe they did good work creating y, thelaws to regulate an industry proj- where every movement is in aign,uncharted territory. “Given the short time o the frame, I think we’ve done Every the best job we possibly ojectcould,” said Rep. Dan Pae of a bon, D-Denver, a major driver of pot legislation this dinasession. “This was the projntainect I undoubtedly spent the cept-most amount of time on this session, to make sure withwe got it right.” signs Pabon was the sponsor itec- of House Bill 1317, which y 31. creates regulations for the operation of retail marijuana stores. Retail pot shops are to open beginning Jan. 1, under the supervision of the Department of Revenue. There will be limits as to what retail marijuana stores can and cannot do, as well as how much marijuana consumers are allowed to purchase. Some late-session amendments to the pot legislation would have allowed out-of-state residents to purchase greater amounts of the drug, as well as to permit the existence of marijuana clubs, where people could congregate to use the drug. However, those amendments failed. Sen. Cheri Jahn, DWheat Ridge, along with Pabon, was instrumental in crafting the Amendment 64 bills. She opposed those amendments, and said it’s important for the state to go slow in rolling out the new industry. Marijuana use and sales are illegal under federal law, and the U.S. Attorney’s Office has yet to provide per-
insight as to how it will respond to the new legislation. So, lawmakers like Jahn say they wanted to make sure they put in place regulations that support strong oversight and that also keep the drug away from children. “We have so much to lose if we don’t do this right,” Jahn said. “And because we have so many `I don’t know what I don’t knows,’ I just think we have to move really cautiously.” But regulations surrounding the industry are bound to change, and lawmakers certainly will address many other pot-related issues in the coming years. “It’s been 80 years since Prohibition and were still passing alcohol laws today,” said Pabon. “We’ve had 80 years to protect that system. We’ve had six months to implement this one.”
Voters to rule on tax
Another key piece of Amendment 64 legislation came in the form of House Bill 1318, which will ask voters to support a 15 percent excise tax, and an initial 10 percent sales tax on retail marijuana. House Republicans unanimously opposed the bill, even though the bill received bipartisan support in the Senate. Rep. Frank McNulty, R-Highlands Ranch, cautioned that if voters do not approve the tax, the money could end up coming out of the state’s general fund. “It was an issue of making sure we were protecting the state,” McNulty said. “We supported suspending retail operations if the tax doesn’t pass. If the tax doesn’t pass ... and if you’re not putting other options in front of voters, everything that state government does is vulnerable.” Fears over what the voters might end up doing in November led to a late-session effort aimed at a partial repeal of Amendment 64, one that was supported by McNulty. The resolution called for the suspension of retail marijuana sales if the pot taxes are not supported by voters. It would not have affected the decriminalization aspect of Amendment 64, so it still would have been legal to smoke the
drug. However, that legislation died almost as quickly as it was introduced in the Senate. Democratic Senate President John Morse teamed up with fellow Colorado Springs Sen. Bill Cadman, the chamber’s minority leader, to introduce the legislation. The resolution passed in a hastily scheduled committee hearing, just three days before the session ended. But it was never brought to the floor of the Senate for consideration. Morse said he “didn’t have the votes” to get the resolution passed. But he said he hoped the crafting of the legislation sent a message to the pro-Amendment 64 lobby, that they need to ensure the tax rate passes in November. Pabon said he didn’t think the partial repeal effort “ever would have gotten out of (a House) committee,
let alone to the floor.” “At the end of the day, the voters have already spoken about this issue and they don’t need to take another vote on it,” Pabon said. Gov. John Hickenlooper said he’s confident that Amendment 64 backers will work with lawmakers in making sure that the taxes pass in November, so that the state isn’t stuck with the bill. “I think we’ll all work on it,” the governor said. “I think they’ll commit resources because if it doesn’t pass, their lives will become chaos. And I don’t even want to speculate what the federal government will do. I don’t even want to speculate what the people of Colorado will do. “They can take it nonchalantly at their own risk.”
Provisions of bills
Here are some of the key aspects of each of the three
bills that deal with the regulation of retail pot sales and use: House Bill 1317: • In-state residents are allowed to purchase up to one ounce of marijuana at retail shops in a single transaction. Visitors to the state can purchase up to a quarter of an ounce per transaction. • Marijuana clubs — places where people could congregate to smoke the drug — are not allowed. • Pot shops cannot sell food or drinks that do not contain marijuana. However, they can sell products meant for using the drug, such as pipes and rolling papers. Stores also are not allowed to use known food products or cartoon characters to market marijuana products. • All marijuana-themed magazines, such as “High Times,” must be kept behind pot store counters. • Pot stores cannot be
mobile, operating like food trucks. • Allows existing medical marijuana stores to start retail pot shops before new businesses. • There must be common ownership between dispensaries and cultivation facilities, and 70 percent of the marijuana grown must come from that ownership. Senate Bill 283: • Revises criminal statutes that deal with children. The bill treats minors possessing marijuana the same as it does underage persons who possess alcohol. It also prohibits marijuana from being allowed on school grounds • Sets up law enforcement training that deals with roadside sobriety tests. • Prohibits open containers of marijuana from being inside vehicles. • Creates the same indoor air-quality restrictions as those dealing with tobacco.

WPHS chess player achieves worldwide ranking Special to the Courier
Woodland Park RE-2 School District Congratulations to Woodland Park High School freshman Gunnar Andersen for taking first at the recent chess tournament against Palmer High School. Anderson remains undefeated in both of this year’s tournaments against Palmer. One of his wins was in only six moves. Congratulations too to Brandon Farmer, Falon Watson and Brennan Arndt for strong showings at the tournament, each having three wins and two losses. Gunnar is a rated player worldwide, meaning he holds a rank amongst worldwide competitors. He sometimes plays with his back to the chess board, calling out his moves to his opponent. His opponent, in turn, calls his or her moves to Gunnar. Amazingly, Gunnar is able to keep track of all moves without ever looking at the board. He has never lost a game playing this way, and even won against two players at the same time playing “blind.”

Vincente Vlasco has no problem reaching the top tier of walls in the meeting area at Church in the Wildwood in Green Mountain Falls. The church is in the midst of a comprehensive renovation project.
Church dresses up for Green Box Arts Festival By Pat Hill
firstname.lastname@example.org Things are hopping in Green Mountain Falls. With the upcoming Green Box Arts Festival and the June delivery of the Tomas Saraceno sculpture from New York, there is a feeling of anticipation in the air. At Church in the Wildwood, the sound of hammers, drills and saws signal renovation and rejuvenation for the historic church built in 1889. “We are working really hard to make sure we are finished by the time the festival starts on June 23,” said Pastor David Shaw. “We expect to be finished by June 15.” Funded by a $74,000 grant from the Kirkpatrick Family Fund, the
project is another in a long line of renovations and cultural infusions from the fund’s president, Christian Keesee. Keesee is a part-time resident of Green Mountain Falls. The church renovation provides handicap accessibility on the west side of the building which leads to the revised main entrance. “ It’s important to us to correct the accessibility; we want everybody to feel equally welcome by having the same entryway,” Shaw said. The new entryway includes a lighted covered canopy and stained glass windows at the side of the door. The renovation incorporates the front room, the lower Fellow-

‘We are working really hard to make sure we are finished by the time the festival starts on June 23.’ David Shaw, pastor ship Hall, which is a throwback to the 1970s, Shaw said. “With the old carpet, it looked like we weren’t doing anything and we’re doing a ton of things.” With weekly meals for the neighbors at the food pantry as
well as a volunteer program for the town’s senior citizens, the church is a vital part of the community. When Keesee “adopted” the town a few years ago, the church was among the beneficiaries,

hosting rehearsals for Keigwin + Company whose dancers perform annually at the Green Box festival. This year Keesee has outdone himself. In June, the town will take delivery on the 16-module “Cloud City,” Saraceno sculpture, which the sculptor terms “an international space station.” Keesee has loaned the piece to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, where is has been displayed on the roof garden. As the highlight of the twoweek arts festival, the sculpture is expected to attract national and international attention.

Second-graders rated A on Shakespeare By Pat Hill
firstname.lastname@example.org The ideal foil for her gifted and talented students, Candy Mowery exudes enthusiasm and a sense of drama. With a flair for the theatrical, in gesture and proclamation, Mowery transferred her intensity, her reverence for Shakespeare, to inspire a performance of “Midsummer Night’s Dream,” starring her second-grade students at Ute Pass Elementary School. “I’ve done Shakespeare for many years with third-, fourthand fifth-grade students. This is my first with second-grade,” she said. After a stunning performance, albeit only 10 minutes, by her students, Mowery was nearly dancing down the halls with excitement. “We’ve read the whole play, they know the whole story and were crushed that we’re only doing 10 minutes,” she said. “But it just proves what kids can do.” For their first performance, in the afternoon of May 7, the
nine actors were clearly enjoying their roles, thrusting their arms in the air to give their characters the proper emphasis or displaying emotions in tune with the script. As an experiment, Mowery is thrilled, perhaps, exonerated by her faith in the second-graders. “They don’t have to walk up to a microphone - if you teach them from the very beginning they can project (their voices),” she said. As producer and director, Mowery becomes part of the audience during the performance, the second of which was that evening for their parents. “If I stand backstage, then they never quite master it,” she said. “I have always been in the audience.” The actors were Kameron Becker as Oberon, Taylor Hansen as Titania, Elena Revis as Puck, Nicole Wickes as Peas-Blossom, Charlie Morgan as Cobweb, Riley Shearer as Bottom, Delaney Bartko as Thisbe, Aidan McQuagge as Lion and Garrett Savage as Wall.

High Altitude Youth Chorus to perform at WPHS By Special to the Courier Colorado Choral
Eighteen months ago the Colorado Springs Children’s Chorale embarked on an experiment known as the High Altitude Youth Chorus. The Children’s Chorale had reached a critical juncture in its mission to provide the youth of the Pikes Peak region with a professional grade choral experience. The essence of the problem was that the chorale’s geographical sphere of influence had outgrown its centralized structure. It no longer made sense to operate out of one central location because singers who lived too far away were missing out on the opportunity to participate. This was especially true where Teller County was concerned. Though, many wonderful singers from Woodland Park, Divide, and surrounding areas have enjoyed membership in the chorale and benefited from its programs over
The Colorado Springs Children’s Choral brought the High Altitude Youth Chorus to Teller County two seasons ago. The chorus will show county residents just how good they’ve become with a free performance at 7:30 p.m. on May 17 at Woodland Park High School. Donations will be excepted but the chorus members are excited by the opportunity to perform for their families, friends and fellow community members.

cade the Children’s Chorale has been building relationships with schools, families, and community
leaders in Teller County through a series of residencies and workshops in local elementary schools. All these folks said their community needed a choir that operated locally and better fit their lives as Teller County residents. The chorale’s leadership decided that the situation provided a perfect opportunity for expansion and, with seed money from the National Endowment for the Arts, the High Altitude Youth Chorus was born. Two seasons have now gone by and the chorus is going strong. Each week young singers from around Teller County gather in a local school for two hours of tutoring by chorale Outreach Coordinator Lori Bammesberger, who also conducts the Pikes Peak Singers. Traveling to Teller County with Bammesberger, is accompanist, chorale alum Carlo Migliaccio, a high-school age dance captain and, frequently, chorale Executive Director Marcia Hendricks. The program has been so suc-
cessful, in fact, that this season the chorale expanded its Teller County offerings to include its Overture Performance Prep Class curriculum for young singers grades K-2 and world renowned music educator Ginger Littleton has joined the menagerie making its way up Ute Pass each week. The result of all this investment is that at 7:30 p.m. on May 17 these young Teller County performers will take the stage at Woodland Park High School ready to wow you with music from Mozart to Broadway to The Blues. They will be joined by the Pikes Peak Singers. The concert will culminate with the magic of children from many Pikes Peak region communities singing together with one voice. Admission is free and while donations will be accepted at the door, this is a unique event and a wonderful opportunity for the youth of Teller County that you can support just by showing up and enjoying the show.
Of yellow ribbons and sheriff ’s volunteers Two local organizations plan fundraisers for their causes By Norma Engelberg
email@example.com There are no big oak trees at Lions Park in Woodland Park so Welcome Home Warriors will be tying yellow ribbons to a large pine. Doloretta Barber and Donna Finicle have planned the yellow ribbon fund drive not only to raise money to support returning soldiers, veterans and their families who need help coping with the effects of war and family separation, but also to create a Guinness World Record. Barber appeared before the Woodland Park City Council on May 2 to tell them about the event and seek support. The organization will be taking donations for yellow ribbons and hope to decorate the tree with 8,465, one ribbon for each foot in elevation the town is above sea level. “This town has attitude but it also has altitude and we want to use that altitude to support out returning warriors,” Barber said. “People can get
‘This town has attitude but it also has altitude and we want to use that altitude to support our returning warriors.’ Doloretta Barber a ribbon for as little as a $1 donation but we’re hoping for larger donations. For an $80 donation you can get your name and logo on a commemorative poster.” Volunteers are also needed to make the bows, collect donations and decorate the tree. For more information, contact Finicle at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 719-439-3621 or Barber at email@example.com or 719-6876542. Also at the Woodland Park City Council meeting, Teller County Sheriff’s Office’s Lt. Jason Mikesell talked about the Honorary Deputy Sheriff’s Association’s annual Charity Golf Tournament. This year, he said, the association is partnering with the Pikes
Peak International Hill Climb Association and the June 25 tournament will be at the Shining Mountain Golf Course in Woodland Park. The fundraiser is being developed to raise money for the Sheriff’s Office Auxiliary, which includes the Sheriff’s Posse and other volunteer programs. The deadline to sign up and pay the entry fee is June 1. The event, which starts at 7 a.m., is open to both individuals and groups and sponsorships are available. There will also be a silent auction and prizes, including those for the top three teams with the lowest team net score, closest to the pin (men and women), longest drive and hole-in-one.

WWII vets visit memorials 29 are guests of Denver nonprofit for D.C. trip By Tom Munds
firstname.lastname@example.org Twenty-nine World War II veterans from communities along the Front Range, representing every branch of the military service, used words like “amazing,” “memorable” and “emotional” to describe their Rocky Mountain Honor Flight trip to Washington, D.C. “This was a very special trip for me. It was very memorable,” Littleton resident Frank Epperson, who flew with the famous Flying Tigers in China, said of the May 2-4 trip. “I appreciate all the honor flight did to make this a special trip for those of us who served in World War II. I was humbled and honored when people I have never met come up to thank me for my service. This is a trip I will not forget.” Rocky Mountain Honor Flight, a Denver-based nonprofit, gives World War II veterans the opportunity to visit the national World War II Memorial in Washington. The volunteers of Rocky Mountain Honor Flight did all they could to make this a very special trip for the guests of honor. Active-duty
military personnel met the veterans at the airport and helped them with their baggage. Then, people in the airport and on the plane applauded when the presence of World War II veterans was announced. The flight landed at Baltimore and a fire truck shot an arc of water over the plane, there were flag-waving volunteers as the group got off the plane and a brass band greeted them at baggage claim. Englewood resident Sel Hewitt, a radio operator on a B-29 in the Pacific during the war, said the trip was fantastic and was a neverto-be-forgotten experience. “I think every veteran appreciated every minute of that trip,” he said. “Everything was special, the places we visited and the contacts we had with people of all ages who were interested in what we had done and what we were doing.” Franktown resident Doug Brown, an Army veteran, agreed. “This trip was pretty unique, as were the greetings and bands and the other special things that were done for our visit,” Brown said. “We were greeted and treated very well. I was in an armored unit that took part in the invasion of Germany. It was very important to me to talk to people who had similar experiences.” Planners kept the vet-
erans busy. Among other activities, they visited the World War II Memorial, the Vietnam and Korean memorials, and watched the changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknowns at Arlington National Cemetery. Some activities just happened. For example, the Dothan (Ala.) High School band was at the World War II Memorial during the honor flight visit and they performed a special concert for the veterans. Numerous student groups were at the World War II Memorial, and Chase Burrows, a student at a Sumter, S.C., middle school, spent quite a bit of time talking to the veterans. “This is special to me. My great-grandfather died in World War II, when his plane was shot down. I have read about the war and we studied it in school but talking to these men means a lot more than reading and studying.” He said he talked to Dick Olson about his experience in a submarine, to Dick Frank about his experience as a Marine and Littleton resident Hos Varner about how he joined the Coast Guard and was assigned to crews bringing ships back from the Philippines. “I really thank these men for what they did,” Burrows said. “They are really heroes in my eyes.”

On the flight back to Denver, the veterans had a surprise with a special “mail call” as each man received an envelope with 20 to 25 letters from family, friends and, more often, from people they had never met thanking them for their service. “This is a surprise and it is tremendous,” Vic Olson said as he read the letters. “I truly appreciate the letters and the sentiments they expressed. It is moving and very, very special.” The finale came when the veterans arrived at Denver International Airport, where they were met by a cheering, applauding crowd of about 200 friends, family, military personnel, police officers and firefighters in uniform and well-wishers. Members of the Patriot Guard lined the wall holding American flags, and the El Jebel pipe band played to welcome the veterans home.

Donations collected for Lindholm paver By Pat Hill
email@example.com In a farewell to the late Larry Lindholm, engraved pavers on the walkway around the Gazebo leaves a legacy for the beloved man who died suddenly April 22. Lana Fox initiated the campaign to collect funds for the pavers. Lindholm, a general contractor, built several homes in his hometown, including Fox’s. The pavers are memorials and legacies for loved ones as well as a fundraising for the restoration of the gazebo in 2006. Robert King, a town trustee at the time, led the paver project and collected donations for the flagstone and engraving. “This was a way of dressing up the outside but also ensuring a long-term funding avenue,” King said. King is helping Fox with the campaign while continuing to oversee the pavers as a fundraiser to complete restoration on the historic land office in Gazebo Park. “The restoration will be done entirely by donations,” said King, who continues to head up the paver project.
There are three tiers of engravings; one line of text is $250, 2 lines, $350 and three lines are $500. The paver accounts are held by the Pikes Peak Community Foundation which offers a taxdeductible benefit for the contributions. For the Lindholm pavers, donors are asked to make the checks out to the Pikes Peak Community Foundation, with Friends of Green Mountain Falls on the memo line. Fox and King hope to have the pavers in by the time of Lindholm’s memorial service at 1 p.m. June 8 at Joyland Church in Green Mountain Falls. Checks can be mailed to Lana Fox, PO Box 171 Green Mountain Falls, CO 80819.
Robert King, former trustee in Green Mountain Falls, heads up the campaign to place a memorial paver in honor of the late Larry Lindholm who died last month. Lindholm was raised in Green Mountain Falls and graduated from Manitou Springs High School. King started the paving project several years ago to help fund the restoration of the Gazebo.

Free Parlour House tours to district residents Special to the Courier
The Old Homestead began as an exclusive brothel in 1896 during Colorado’s Gold Rush and is today a museum visited by hundreds of locals and tourists each year due to the support of local residents. May is National Preservation Month and The Old Homestead, once a grand brothel for the rich men of the Gold Rush Era in Cripple Creek, is offering free tours to those
who live or work in the Cripple Creek and Victor district. Bring identification that shows you live or work in the district for a FREE tour of The Old Homestead House Museum on from 1-6 p.m. May 16-17 or from 11 a.m.-5 p.m. on May 18. View beautiful furniture and clothing that represents the late 1800s and learn about the colorful history of Cripple Creek, Colorado in its heyday of the Gold Rush and the part that The Old Homestead played.
Built in 1896 by the famous madam Pearl DeVere to service the powerful men of the Cripple Creek mining district who became rich during Colorado’s Gold Rush, this historic building has been beautifully preserved through the support of local residents and businesses. Today the ladies of the house are local women who keep the story of the Old West alive through the stories they share about the lives of the girls who worked in the brothel and of the gold miners who made
Cripple Creek famous. The Old Homestead Museum is open for tours on weekends beginning May 4 and open seven days a week starting May 25. Regular admission is $5 for a 30 minute personalized tour of the house that was once the hottest ticket in town.

Markets sprout, and farmers survive
The early morning chill, left over from winter’s most recent unwelcome blast, settles along the quiet street where blue and white canopies have popped up like overdue buds, signaling the arrival of the season’s first farmers market. Soft music, lingering from a nearby restaurant, punctures the hush, along with occasional laughter and voices from vendors as they ready tables with wares and hopes for a good day. Danish bakery workers pull sugarcrusted strudels — apricot and apple raisin — from their truck to shelves along the sidewalk. Nearby is the homemade peanut butter woman and the Angus beef man and the cheerful El Salvador cook. At the end is the farmer. He is 63, the great-grandson of a farmer who bought a plot of land 108 years ago in Welby, between Denver and Thornton, off North Washington Street. andToday, he has 80 acres in Hudson, a country town of 2,300 northeast of Denver on Interstate 76, a solid hour-and15-minute drive to the Sunday market in nowHighlands Ranch.

coastal drive to San Francisco or in their hometown. When they lived in Evergreen, they visited the local market there every Tuesday. Now, in Highlands Ranch, they never miss a Sunday. It’s a matter of principle and a matter of friendship. Besides the benefit of fresh produce, “I’d rather pay a little more to support local people,” Maria says. “We’re big believers in moving away from the Walmartization of the U.S.” And, over the years, many vendors have become friends — the Angus beef man invited them to his wedding last year. “They become part of the fabric of your life,” Maria says. “We were so excited,” Sean says of the week leading up to opening day. “We were talking about this all week.” They walk away, hand in hand, each with a small bag. Basil and oregano seedlings in one, peanut butter, pasta and honey in the other. This time, “we didn’t have a lot to buy,” Maria says. “It was seeing old friends.” Colorado has more than 100 farmers markets, with about half in the Denver metro area, according to the state Department of Agriculture. They operate individually or through sponsoring organizations. Most are seasonal, running from May through October, and their arrival seems to signal the start — finally
and highly unorganized place: my warped mind.

As vendors begin to pack up, Mazzotti stands by his truck, behind the tables and ground laden with pansies, petunias and geraniums in planters, baskets and trays. Herb seedlings, also from his greenhouse, sit in the canopy shade. It’s too early in the season for most vegetables and fruit. The day’s proceeds: Just OK. “A little chilly,” he explains. But that’s all right. He’s reconnected with many of his customers, some now friends, like the brothers in their 90s at the Auraria market in Denver that he’s known for 30 years and who even visit his farm at times. Next week, he hopes to bring asparagus, spinach and lettuce with his flowers. Come June, he’ll be trucking loads of vegetables to six markets a week. Down the row of vendors, he watches canopies folding shut — like tulips closing at day’s end. Like the others, he loads up and heads for home. “I’m tired,” he says. A smile quickly appears. “I’m getting older every day.” And rest won’t come until the plants are back in the greenhouse, the truck is cleaned, the crops tended, the chores all done. Then, he’ll enjoy the peace of the land, the lack of pavement that traps heat, the friendliness of country neighbors. “I have to make a living. I have to feed my family, too.” But more than anything, he says, working the land and sharing its yield with the rest of us, “is a way of life.” A farmer’s life. And a good life. You’ll find farmers markets listed at www. coloradofarmers.org. Ann Macari Healey’s column about people, places and issues of everyday life appears every other week.

— of summer. The Metro Denver Farmers Market, founded 36 years ago, is the oldest organization. And that’s how long Mazzotti, an original member, has been selling at the outdoor markets, which he estimates have kept 70 percent of local farmers in business. In fact, he says, most farmers grow specifically for the markets. He has corn, carrots, green beans, cauliflower, sweet corn, cucumbers, winter and summer squashes, parsley, basil. “I can’t think fast enough,” he says as he rattles off the list. Farmers do have other outlets such as fruit and vegetable stands, garden centers and pumpkin patches. But they expect to earn most of their money in the summer markets. They are, however, no longer just for farmers. Walk through any market and you’ll see the realization of a melting pot of dreams. There’s the gourmet nut man, stirring almonds with a wooden paddle in a copper vat as a tantalizing aroma draws a crowd. There’s a local children’s book author. And there’s Monse Perez Hines, the young Salvadoran wife of a military man, who drives up from Colorado Springs each week to sell curtido and pupusas, traditional foods she makes in her home which are so popular she always returns with empty coolers. “I’ve received such great support from everyone here,” she says. And “I’ve been able to share my culture.” And Evi Bujdoso of Hungary, selling Danish pastries. She wears a white apron, and her short, blond hair pokes out from beneath a white cap. A half hour from closing time, just a handful of strudels and a few croissants are left. “We weren’t prepared all the way,” she says with a slight accent and a quick smile. “People were excited to see us back again.”
could go from Latin phrases to “Seinfeld” episodes to a summary of the legislative session. But it kinda makes sense. You see, Democrats truly believe that this year’s session was a Show About Something. And their definition of the word “something” is a heck of a lot different from Republicans’. “There’s a lot of good that came out of this session,” said Sen. Pat Steadman, D-Denver. “I think we put some really positive public policy out there and I think the people of Colorado are going to look back at this session and just be amazed at all the things we found the time to do.” So the Democrats are happy. For them, the session was about sunshine and puppy dog tails. As for the Republicans, not so much. “They charged hard to the left and stayed there the entire session,” said Rep. Frank McNulty, R-Highlands Ranch, of the Democrat agenda. I know what you’re thinking right now. You’re thinking, `Hey, wait a second, Vic. You mean to tell me that Democrats and Republicans disagreed on how this year’s legislative session turned out?’”
Yep. Shocking, ain’t it? Democrats feel like they hit the jackpot this session, by passing a host of major pieces of legislation: civil unions, education reform, election reform, in-state tuition for undocumented immigrants and gun control, just to name a few. Seriously. If there was such a thing as Democratic bingo, the entire card would be full of little dauberstained dots. “Any one of these things by themselves would have been historic and epic, frankly, in a session,” said Senate Majority Leader Morgan Carroll, D-Aurora. “And we did. One after the other, after the other.” Hmm. But did they do too much? Republicans sure think so. They think Democrats will rue the day that they tried to push such a progressive agenda on the voters. Senate Minority Leader Bill Cadman, R-Colorado Springs, mocked the Democrats’ legislative efforts on job creation. He said the Democrats proved they’re a party that’s beholden to unions and their efforts hurt small businesses. “This agenda is punishing people in Colorado,” Cadman said. McNulty agrees. “The Democrats have clearly shown that they are very liberal,” he said. “Colorado voters are not going to reward them for that.” But Democrats are making no apologies. They also
Colorado Governor John Hickelooper discusses the legislative session during the Politics and Pints event on May 10 at the Westin Westminster, sponsored by the Metro North Chamber of Commerce. Photo by Pam Wagner believe that Republicans didn’t do much of anything, except to complain and say no to just about everything throughout the 120-day session. That’s not what the voters wanted this session, Carroll said. “We would rather be criticized for tackling too many of Colorado’s problems, than not enough,” Carroll said. So, there ya have it. A legislative session that spanned five months, with reaction that can be summed up as: Democrats good; Republicans bad. And vice versa. Who would’ve thunk it, right? Or, maybe the session could be summed up as being a really long, and not nearly as funny, “Seinfeld” episode. Think about it. Whenever Democrats did something controversial, Republicans would bemoan
with a “Newman!”-like expression. And, when Republicans complained about Demo-
cratic overreach, Democrats like Carroll would respond with an Elaine Benes-like shove to the chest, and a hearty “Get out!” There was one episode where Kramer started the show by pretending to do a stand-up comedy routine, a la Jerry Seinfeld. “What’s the deal with politics?” Kramer said. “Am I right, people? I don’t get it.” I think Kramer might be on to something there. Hmm. Maybe it’s pronounced SINE-DIE after all. Just like “Seinfeld.” Vic Vela is the legislative reporter for Colorado Community Media.

Many of the wildlife species living at the Colorado Wolf & Wildlife Center get mail, especially from children but only the fox family has its own mail box.

Wolf puppy gets new home Colorado Wolf & Wildlife Center adopts young wolf By Norma Engelberg
firstname.lastname@example.org The Colorado Wolf & Wildlife Center has a new resident and ambassadorin-training just in time for Wolfstock 2013, a Memorial Day fundraiser for fire prevention. Keyni (pronounced keen-eye) is an 8-week-old full-blooded wolf puppy that was rescued from the home of an older couple in Florida. Darlene Kobobel, founder of the center that spe-
cializes in rescuing native canids including wolves, coyotes and fox, said the owners didn’t keep its male and female wolves separated and ended up with two litters of puppies. “We took in Keyni, two other pups went to Mission: Wolf in Westcliff and two went to a zoo in Oregon,” she said. “This is the second time that’s happened with this couple. This time we and other wolf-rescue organizations are taking up a collection to get the wolves spayed or neutered. That’s the only way to solve the surplus animal problem.” She added that there are already many more domestic dogs and cats born in

this country than there are available homes and that the problem is even worse for exotic animals like wolves. “There is no reason unless you’re preserving the species to ever breed these animals,” she said. It will cost $810 to spay two female wolves and neuter two males. The center has donated $250 toward the project and Mission: Wolf is also contributing. Besides its 17 wolves, the center is also home to four red fox, four coyotes and five swift fox that are part of a species preserving breeding program. Besides these, the center is also home to americauna chickens that lay blue and green eggs, rescued domesticated dogs, a cat, two burros, miniature horses, a couple of ferrets, some lovebirds and Kobobel’s cichlid fish collection. “We’re a menagerie,” she said. While the center does its part rescuing these animals, Kobobel is worried about the future. “All wildlife is endangered by what we’re doing,” she said. “Until that affects us directly there are very few people willing to be a voice for the animals.” She added that since the wolves have been taken off

now were up to 70 acres. That land allows us to have a bigger no-development buffer around our animal enclosures and to do some fire mitigation.” The new puppy will be introduced to the public at Wolfstock 2013, where, from 1 a.m.-5 p.m. at the center on Lower Twin Rock Road, there will be food and beer, a silent auction, bands, vendors and door prizes.

Woodland Park sophomore Meghan Sieracki scored the Panthers’ lone goal in their playoff loss to Palmer Ridge on May 7
Panthers End Season on a High Note Sieracki scores ‘There’s so much Woodland Park’s lone goal in playoff potential with all loss to Palmer Ridge By Danny Summers
email@example.com MONUMENT – It wasn’t quite the “shot heard round the world,” but it might well have been the most important goal of the season for the Woodland Park High School girls soccer team. The monumental moment occurred 20 minutes into the second half of the Panthers’ first-round Class 4A state playoff game against No. 3 overall seed Palmer Ridge on May 7. Morghan Sieracki, off of a pass from Jenny Sells, blasted a shot from about 12 yards that found the back of the net to put Woodland Park on the scoreboard. A loud roar emerged from the Panthers faithful at Don Breese Stadium as the girls celebrated on the field with pats on the back, high fives and smiles. “We talked about getting a goal at halftime,” said Sieracki, who was second on the team in goals this season with 16. “We worked all season on those goals.
Shannon Bingen What I’ve been working on in practice is making a difference.” More important than Sieracki’s goal was the boost of confidence it gave the club. The Panthers – the No. 30 seed in the tournament – lost the game 9-1, but they gained a huge confidence boost heading into the offseason. “It’s going to give us hop instead of just waiting around for next season to begin,” Sieracki said. “We’re going to have a couple of practices a week starting (this) week so we can keep working together.” The playoff game was the first for Woodland Park since making back-to-back appearances in 2008 and 2009. The Panthers fashioned an impressive 10-5-1 mark this season. They were the

No. 3 seed out of the Metro League. “Our goal next year is to make the playoffs again and win a playoff game; and maybe win the league,” said Sells, who led the team with 18 goals and 14 assists this season. “This game meant a lot. I felt everyone stepped up to the occasion today. We did not want to get mercied. We wanted to show some pride.” Things did not look good early for Woodland Park as Palmer Ridge built a 6-0 lead with 18:34 remaining in the first half. The Bears’
dominant ball handling and speed was a big reason for their success as Woodland Park had difficulty putting together more than two consecutive passes. It also didn’t help matters that the Panthers were without starting senior goalkeeper Grace Wyka, who broke her hand in the final crossover tournament game against Widefield on May 3 – a 5-0 victory that put Woodland Park in the playoffs. Junior Mary Polgar filled in for Wyka and did a solid job. “Mary played great,” said Woodland Park defender

and captain Shannon Bingen. “She’ll work hard in the offseason and be back next year.” Bingen was proud of her teammates on many fronts. “I felt that all the hard work and sweat and tears were worth it,” she said. “This was definitely a great way to end my high school career. “There’s so much potential with all the girls. They’ve developed so much. They will hold their own next year.”
Woodland Park returns a strong core next season. Other varsity players include sophomores Katie Stunkard and MacKenzie Jones, juniors Julia BriggsHale, Grace Hopkins, Victoria Billings, Michaele McDonough and Kayla Liller and freshman Caitlan Thorne. “I’m pumped for next season,” Sieracki said. “There are some more freshmen playing on club teams that will really help us out.”

Panthers’ season comes to an end in playoffs By Danny Summers
Jdsummers30@gmail.com A 10-0 loss wasn’t the result the Woodland Park High School baseball teamwas expecting in its return to the post season. But that was the case May 11 when the Panthers played host Montrose in a Class 4A District 5 playoff game. Montrose right-hander Tyrus Lopez was dominating as he threw a perfect game over five innings. Fifteen Bears stepped to the plate and returned to the dugout without ever reaching first base. The game was called due to the run rule after Montrose scored a
run in the bottom of the fifth off of Jake Neal. “We played like we were the No. 31 seed and Montrose played like there were the No. 2 seed,” said Woodland Park coach Cliff Richardson. “It was disappointing, but we knew Montrose would be tough.” Richardson and his crew knew they had a tough matchup when pairings were announced on May 8. The Bears (11-9) were the No. 31 seed out of 32 teams in the playoffs. Montrose was the No. 2 overall seed. Montrosedefeated Erie to win the district and advance to this
weekend’s state quarterfinals. Lopez was Montrose’s No. 2 pitcher. But according to Richardson he was every bit as good as any No. 1 his club has seen all year. “He threw hard and he had a good curve ball,” Richardson said. “We were either flailing at curve balls or swinging above our heads. We didn’t really hit anything hard.” Panthers ace right-hander Jeremy Gwinn started the game, but was roughed up for nine runs (seven earned) on 10 hits in 3 1/3 innings. Gwinn did not walk a batter and struck out three to raise his

‘I am very proud of our varsity baseball boys and the fact that they made it to division playoffs.’ Dave Turley, Woodland Park mayor season total to 81 – setting a new school record in the process. The old mark of 80 was held by Troy Kane in 2006. “Jeremy threw well,” Richardson said. “He’d get two strikes, hit his spot on the outside corner and they’d hit it into right field.” Gwinn’s father, Jeff, an assistant coach with the club, added that Jeremy wasn’t his usual sharp self due to a tired arm. “He left belt high too much,” Jeff Gwinn said. “He probably could get away with that against lesser opponents, but not when you’re playing the No. 2 seed.” Despite the quick playoff exit, Woodland Park had a lot to celebrate this season. The Panthers won six of seven games during one stretch following a four-game losing streak. Gwinn and Evan Lays put together impressive seasons on the mound, wining a combined nine games. Gwinn’s ERA was under 1.00 much of the season. Three times he struck out 11 or more batters in a game. Lays fashioned a 2.33 ERA over 33 innings, striking out 10 or more batters in a game on two occasions. Gwinn and Lays each had staggering strikeout-to-walk totals. Gwinn struck out 82 while walking 20. Lays had 53 strikeouts and 14 walks. Lays was also the team’s No. 1
catcher and one of the club’s top hitters. He batted .349 with four doubles, two triples, 13 RBIs and tied for the team lead in runs with 20. Six Panthers (Lays, Max Levy, Cody Hedges, Logan Watters, Keegan Harmen and Neal) batted over .300. Kayden Osborne hit a solid .293 with five doubles and 12 RBIs. “I am very proud of our varsity baseball boys and the fact that they made it to division playoffs,” said Woodland Park mayor Dave Turley, who made the trek to Montrose. “It’s a fine accomplishment for which they, their families, their classmates, and our community can be very proud also.” Turley is very close to the program on a number of levels. He photographs many of the games and oversees the American Legion summer program, which is set to begin June 10. Richardson will coach the summer team, which includes eight starters from this year’s club – Hedges, Watters, Osborne, Harmen, Dakota Herman, Carl Loy, Sam Ballard and Chase Fish. “I’m going to miss my seniors dearly, but I am excited to put players on the field with valuable varsity experience,” Richardson said. Woodland Park will host the Legion state tournament in late July at Meadow Wood Sports Park.

Tapia Heads to State Track Meet as an Underdog Cripple Creek-Victor junior excels in the long jump By Danny Summers
email@example.com COLORADO SPRINGS â€“ Katie Tapia is hoping to sail beyond the competition at this weekâ€™s state track and field meet. The Cripple Creek-Victor High School junior has soared under the radar all season in the long jump. While that has not been by plan, she is using it as motivation to generate her best leap when it matters most. â€œIâ€™ll be going to state as an underdog, but Iâ€™ll get â€˜em,â€? Tapia said with confidence. â€œI just need to put it all into one jump.â€? Tapia will compete in the event Friday as competitors from all classifications gather at Jefferson County Stadium in Lakewood. Tapia is Cripple Creek-Victorâ€™s lone representative. She competes in 2A. â€œSheâ€™s had a rough go of it this season,â€? Cripple Creek-Victor track coach Jill McCracken said of Tapia. â€œSheâ€™s a little frustrated, but sheâ€™s getting a lot better.â€? Tapia finished fifth in state in the long jump as a freshman and fourth last year as a sophomore with a career-best leap of 17 feet, 3.25 inches. This year has been marred by a series of scratches. It didnâ€™t help that she was forced inside to practice much of the time because of the winter-type conditions. â€œAll I really need to work on is my form,â€? Tapia said. â€œIf I get a mark on my first jump I get confidence. If I scratch on my first jump it really gets to me. Tapia has shown signs of turning things around. She had a season-best leap of 16-9 at the Spartan Invitational on May 4. She is currently ranked fifth in the state. The top 18 in each event advance to the state meet. She won the Southern Peaks League meet on May 10 with a jump of 15-10.5. â€œSheâ€™s getting a lot better with practice,â€? McCracken said. Tapia is a multi-sport athlete. She was the top hitter on the schoolâ€™s volleyball team, and led the basketball team in scoring. â€œVolleyball helps with my vertical,â€? Tapia said.

Tapia is competing at the state track meet this week in the long jump. Photo by Danny Summers A huge part of success in the long jump is speed. Tapia has that. She started running the 100 meters this year. Her best mark is 13.92 seconds. â€œWhat really helps me is my speed,â€? she said. â€œI need to work on my height. If I could get my height down I could be

â€œThatâ€™s her race,â€? McCracken said. â€œSheâ€™s good at it.â€? For now, at least, Tapia is focusing on the long jump at the state meet. Sheâ€™s hoping for a warm day. â€œAll it takes is one good jump,â€? she said. â€œI think I can take state if I can put it all together.â€?

Four Panthers Headed to State Track Meet Ruddick, Westfall, and Hannah and Hayden Erickson qualify By Danny Summers
firstname.lastname@example.org WOODLAND PARK – Gabby Ruddick leads a contingent of four Woodland Park High School athletes who will compete at this week’s Class 4A state track and field meet. Ruddick, a senior, will compete in the high jump and 100 meter low hurdles. Ruddick finished third in the high jump at the 2012 state meet and second in 2011. Ruddick won the Metro League championship in both events last weekend. Joining Ruddick at state will be senior Hannah Erickson (discus, shot put), sophomore Hayden Erickson (shot put) and senior Cody Westfall (discus). Ruddick has already equaled the school record in the high jump with a leap of 5-4. She is ranked second in the state in the event. “Gabby’s right there,” said Woodland Park coach Ron Payton. “She usually rises to the challenge, so I can see her doing very well at state. She’s a game-day kid.” Ruddick is ranked seventh in the hurdles (15.64 seconds). The school record in the event is held by Cassidy Nettles (15.33 in 2008). Ruddick believes her best chance to place at state is in the high jump. “I’m always looking to do more,” Ruddick said. “I’m not settling for a certain height. I’ve jumped 5-6 in practice, and just missed 5-7.” Ruddick plans to step away from track after the state meet to focus on her career as a photographer. She’s owned her own photography business (GKRPhotography) for several years and plans on attending the Art
Institute of Colorado in Denver in the fall. “Track is not where my heart is,” Ruddick said. “I am excited about starting something new in my career path.” Woodland Park sprints coach Jennifer Royer believes Ruddick has a chance to do very well in the hurdles at state. “She’s an incredible athlete,” Royer said. “She will be successful in any event she competes – relays, sprint medley, 4x100.” Hannah Erickson is ranked fifth in the discus at 133-1. She is less than a foot behind Ashley Hutchinson’s school record of 134-0 set in 2002. Erickson is ranked ninth in the shot put (38-0). Laura Daily holds the school record of 39-8.5 in 2010. Hayden Erickson is ranked 10th in the shot put with a throw of 49-7. Rick Stennet owns the school record with a toss of 52-9 back in 1975. “Hannah and Hayden both have a chance of being top eight,” Payton said. “It’s a matter of putting it all together when it counts most.” Several other Woodland Park athletes came close to qualifying for the state meet. Junior Randy Westfall, Cody’s brother is ranked 20th in the discus. The girls 4x800 relay team is ranked 20th (10:09.01) – just 38/100ths of a second away from qualifying. The relay team consists of Megan Dillinger, Savannah Ebhert, Lexi Harrison and Anne Fisher. The league meet produced good results for the Panthers’ boys and girls teams. The girls finished second to Coronado – 194 to 143.5. The 4x800 relay team was second. Elsa Huber and Megan Roughen finished second and third, respectively, in the pole vault. Hannah Erickson won the shot put and discus. The boys finished fourth. Hayden Erickson and Cody Westfall won their events, while Randy Westfall was second.
