The dream is on for Pikes Peak skiing By Pat Hill

phill@ourcoloradonews.com Fifty years after legendary rock climber Harvey Carter envisioned a ski resort on Pikes Peak, another man is closer to fulfilling the late Carter’s goal. John Ball, a telecommunications executive in Boulder, picked up the vision in 2007 and today is actively seeking venture capital for The Resort at Pikes Peak, 320 acres west of the mountain. “When Carter got sick, he chose John to pass this on to; and John called me and said `I need help,’” said Scott Brown, who revitalized the town of Telluride in the early 1970s with a world-class ski resort. “That’s what I’m doing here; I believe in the vision; we’re not going to do any real-estate development other than a ski lodge, with rentals. The children’s programs are so important.” The two men are back in business after the vision was interrupted by the financial collapse of 2008. While Ball had formed a limited liability company, in agreement with Carter, the crash put things on hold. Instead of attracting investors for the project, Ball and The Resort at Pikes Peak were entangled in lawsuits and counterclaims that today has the directors on another type of revitalization. “We recently took the property into

John Ball and Scott Brown, directors of “The Resort at Pikes Peak,” are moving ahead with plans to develop a 320-acre area west of the mountain. Photo by Rob Carrigan Chapter 11 bankruptcy to reorganize all the debt and try to come out the other side to come up with a workable and doable ski resort,” Brown said. Ball added, “We have a number of people who want to invest but want to make sure there are no skeletons in the closet.” In a telephone interview with Brown and Ball, the men are upbeat about the project,

which includes aligning with a representative of the Ute tribe, Kenny Frost. “We talked about how we could bring the historic land back to the original inhabitants of Colorado,” Ball said. “We did a blessing ceremony earlier this year.” The historic theme would carry over to the ski resort. “We’d have an Americanthemed ski area for local use that promotes

a virtual marketplace to shop. Proceeds from this event help Teller Senior Coalition, Woodland Park Hockey Association and Woodland Aquatics Project. A quick trip though the Pikes Peak Courier View archives shows that there was a parade in Woodland Park in 1986 but the first reference to a Lighter Side of Christmas Parade using that name was in 1988, which likely means that this year’s Lighter Side of Christmas Parade is 24 years old. The parade starts at 6 p.m. at the Taco Bell, moves down Woodland Park’s main street, U.S. 24, and ends at Tweeds. The parade has a single theme that showcases two different anniversaries. The theme, “A Colorado Christmas Cookie Carol,” uses cookies to highlight the 100th anniversary of the Girl Scouts of America and a Christmas Carol to celebrate the 200th birthday of Charles Dickens. Dickens wrote “A Christmas Carol” in 1843. It’s probably his most popular work, as well as the one most often adapted for other media such as movies, plays and

TV shows. The beneficiary of this year’s parade is Girl Scout Troop 249. Two years ago the parade benefited local Boy Scout troops as they celebrated the Boy Scouts of America’s 100th anniversary. “The Community Cupboard van will be in the parade and then will park in front of the Ute Pass Cultural Center so that parade goers can fill it up,” said Tracie Bennitt, a long-time parade planner. “The parade keeps evolving every year. We’re working on setting the theme and choosing a beneficiary so we can announce them on parade day.” After the parade, everyone is invited to gather at the Ute Pass Cultural Center for the refreshments, music provided by Woodland Wind Symphony and the Summit Singers, the city tree lighting ceremony and the annual Crazy Holiday Hat contest. Vickie and Jerry Good, owners of Williams Brothers Furniture will be standing at the

sustainability, conservationism and is an example of how we can enjoy the outdoors without paving it all over,” Brown said. With renewed vigor, Ball and Brown are counting on statistics to move ahead on the project. “If 200,000 people in Boulder can support a local ski area in Eldorado then why can’t 600,000 people in Colorado Springs support one?” Brown said. A survey by the Ski Association of America reports that 23 percent of Colorado residents ski. “That means that 123,000 people in the area probably ski,” Ball said. For Woodland Park, the resort would be an economic boon, Brown said, with an estimated 100 jobs created and $1 million in tax revenue generated. In a time of severe drought, Ball and Brown emphasize that the resort will operate in late winter or early spring by counting on a buildup of snow. “We have the water rights on the mountain so there’s enough snow and water to make snow,” Ball said. Inspired by the vision of Carter, who died from pancreatic cancer in March, Ball and Brown are moving ahead. “This was Harvey Carter’s dream. I know that every ski resort ever started was the dream of somebody like Harvey Carter,” Brown said. “They dreamed it, lived it and made it happen. I don’t know one who got rich over it. But they did something great for their community.”

Christmas in WP starts early By Norma Engelberg

The day starts with the annual Breakfast with Santa at the Ute Pass Cultural Center 8-11 a.m., sponsored by the Pikes Peak Kiwanis. Kiwanis volunteers spend the morning cooking pancakes and other breakfast accompaniments while children visit with Santa on the cultural center stage or with Mrs. Clause down in front. Santa has his bag of goodies and Mrs. Clause shares hugs and cookies. There will also be other activities for children, including coloring and drawing and getting fake tattoos. Young volunteers help serve and keep the tables clean. On Dec. 1-2 is the Tweed’s Sounds of Christmas Holiday Home Tour with welldecorated homes for people to visit and

Shaffer gets maximum for GMF arson By Pat Hill

phill@ourcoloradonews.com There was no leniency for Zacharia Shaffer, 22, who was sentenced to 12 years in prison and 5 years of probation and restitution for the arson fire that destroyed the Green Mountain Falls Town Hall in February. In a sentence hearing before Judge Robert Lowrey Nov. 19, Shaffer, who was charged with first-degree arson, acknowledged that he had started the fire in the

wee hours of Feb. 23. His accomplice, Kyle Lawrence, was severely burned in an explosion inside the building. “I was the genesis, the cause of the fire,” Shaffer said. “I know I made a poor decision and didn’t think about the consequences.” Shaffer had been ticketed for running a stop sign in 2010 in town and was serving a deferred sentence while facing suspension of his driver’s license. Prosecuting attorney Reggie Short argued for the maximum

POSTAL ADDRESS

sentence. “This was not done in the heat of passion,” Short said. “He took the time and effort to obtain gasoline before he picked up his friend.” Shaffer showed no signs of remorse for the crime, Short said. “At the time of his arrest, he asked who had turned him in, as only six people knew of the plan to destroy the hall,” Short said. Short emphasized that two people could have been killed in the fire, the neighbors, Barbara Gafford and her granddaughter, Nicole Blough. “We are fortunate we are not doing this hearing in a different context,” Short said. A true tragedy, said Shaffer’s defense attorney, Norman Thom, for Shaffer as well as his girlfriend and their unborn child. Thom emphasized that Shaffer confessed to the crime at the time of his arrest the evening of Feb. 24. Shaffer made a full statement while being treated for minor injuries incurred in the fire.

While the plea agreement called for prison time, Thom asked for leniency. Several of Shaffer’s friends refuted the claim that he, Shaffer, was not remorseful. “We understand that he has a price to pay; it was a horrible mistake,” said Rick Vetter. “We are all here to support him.” As a show of restitution, Shaffer offered an initial check of $2,500, in addition to doing community service and taking an anger-management class. Addressing Shaffer’s anger, Lowrey said, “There are people who have lost parents or had traffic tickets, but they don’t burn down buildings,” he said. “This is extreme and unusual behavior.”

Shaffer planned the crime, sought out the materials and tried to figure out a way to escape, Lowrey said. As for the restitution check, the crime destroyed hundreds of thousands of dollars, he added. “The people of Green Mountain Falls didn’t deserve this response on your part,” he said. Before issuing the sentence, Lowrey noted Shaffer’s obvious education, reflected in a letter written to the court. “The letter has strong grammar and is a sign of intelligence and thought process,” Lowrey said. “What happened?” Shaffer was allowed to kiss his mother and girlfriend goodbye before beginning his sentence.

ELECTION NEWS IN A HURRY County election canvass complete

The El Paso County Election Department has completed the required canvass process to certify and finalize the 2012 General Election results. The canvass process is the official audit of the election results. The Canvass Board was made up of two members of each major political party and the County Clerk and Recorder. The canvass included ballots that were returned by Military and Overseas Citizens voters and were postmarked by Election Day and ballots that the voter needed to cure by showing identification or signing, for example, before it could be counted. Individuals with ballots to be cured were notified by letter and had eight days after the election to respond and correct the problem. The final step was reviewing 9,741 Provisional Ballots. Of these 8,454 (87 percent) were counted. In the provisional review, all polling places reports and returned Mail Ballots were reviewed to ensure no voter was able to cast more than one ballot. The final official results include 14,802 more ballots than the last unofficial results published Election Night. While some percentages changed slightly, the only result that varied was the El Paso County vote on Amendment 64. The counting of the additional ballots meant that El Paso County voters supported Amendment 64 by a margin of ten votes. Results from the rest of the state showed Amendment 64 passing already. The canvass reported a total of 292,698 votes, a record for El Paso County, exceeding 2008’s total of 274,707 by 17,991. Final official election results are available on the Clerk and Recorder’s webpage: http://car.elpasoco. com. Precinct results will be posted later today.

Trustees wrangle over budget By Pat Hill

phill@ourcoloradonews.com Tensions were high in Green Mountain Falls, as the trustees and Mayor Lorrie Worthey split over the marshal’s budget for 2013. While the mayor made an informal request that other departments relinquish funds for the marshal, her request went nowhere at the meeting Nov. 20. As it was, Marshal Tim Bradley as well as Chris Frandina and Rob McArthur had already sliced 4.5 percent off their initial requests for the clerk’s office and public works’ department. For Bradley, the issue boiled down to explaining why he allotted just $203 for gasoline for the year while maintaining his current staff. “Do we really need two part-time depu-

ties?” said trustee Howard Price. “For how many years did we have a marshal and one deputy? And we didn’t have a crime wave.” Put on the hot seat, Bradley kept his cool. “When I came here there were 2.5 employees,” he said. “I took that full-time position and turned it into two part-time positions.” Price and trustees Ralph LoCascio, Jane Newberry and Mac Pitrone kept drilling. At one point, Price asked why the marshal’s department was so busy now that the ChildrenARK/Axios had closed. “We’ve fielded 700 calls for service this year,” Bradley said. “A lot of these have criminal charges filed, investigations and follow-ups.” Whether Bradley keeps the deputies or not, the trustees were riled up over the gasoline allotment. In a kind of concession, Bradley agreed to increase the fuel budget by axing portions from such items as office

supplies. If nothing else, the hassle over the marshal’s budget highlighted the effects of the Great Recession on small municipalities. “Randy (former marshal Randy Ford who retired in 2011) got a $21,500 criminal justice grant, $15,000 paid for a deputy,” said Frandina, the town’s clerk/treasurer. “We got $9,000 in donations, but to take donations and grants for salaries is not sustainable, even though that’s what’s been done. But grants have dried up.” After a tense-filled hour, Bradley acknowledged that he and his deputies would have to decrease patrols. “We have done increased patrols because people have asked us to,” Bradley said. “We’re just going to have to cut back. I don’t know what else to do.” Newberry snapped. “Appreciate it,” she said. “Now if we’re all okay with that bot-

tom line, let’s move on to another budget (department). In a balanced budget of $440,699, the marshal’s portion is $115,699. There were no salary increases and each department was asked to add 1 percent for a 3 percent contribution to the town’s contingency fund. Worthey was still rankled. “I just want you guys to know that this has been a ride like nothing else, with all the scheduled meetings cancelled it has just been interesting,” Worthey said. “I agree with Chris (Frandina) that we need to move on. I would like to see changes next time, where we start looking at this earlier. It’s important that we have all of us together; having a trustee gone is really hard.” The trustees are scheduled to pass the budget at the meeting Dec. 4.

Merchants talk customer service

By Pat Hill

phill@ourcoloradonews.com

In a roundtable discussion, members of the Greater Woodland Park Chamber of Commerce talked about doing business in a year of challenges. “What has worked and what questions do you have?” said Luke Conrad, broker with Benchmark Mortgage who moderated the discussion Nov. 15 at the Swiss Chalet.

“It’s rough right now,” said Scott Duarte, general manager of the Country Lodge. “Luckily, a lot of people are moving in; I have two or three people a week either closing on a house or looking for land.” Along with the hospitality, Duarte adds a marketing component, talking up the town’s restaurants and shops. “We tell them they don’t have to go to the Springs,” he said. Tina Myers, marketing agent for Life Vantage, expressed frustration about the follow-

up process as a response to phone calls. “You call people back and they don’t have time to talk to you,” she said. On the other hand, Myers credits the quarterly roundtables as a networking tool. “It’s these smaller events where I’ve been able to develop relationships with people,” she said. Conrad responded. “That’s music to our ears,” he said. The relationship with the Chamber has been “awesome,” said Dean Buysse who, with his wife, Kathy, recently opened the Edgewood Inn Bed & Breakfast. In relating his experiences, Buysse talked about flexibility. “When we got into this business, I really thought it was going to be a bed and breakfast,” Buysse said. “But it’s going in a totally different direction; it’s becoming a destination event center.” While things may be looking up in Woodland Park, the Waldo Canyon Fire hurt business. “We opened June 1, the first guest arrived June 15, the house was full and we had to evacuate June 23,” Buysse said. “We had to cancel everybody, did not have a phone call or an email.” At Tweeds Fine Furnishings, the fire and subsequent evacuation period hurt busi-

ness, said Tanner Coy. “The fire really hurt but the rebound has been fantastic,” Coy said. “We’re looking forward to the Holiday Home Tour, think it’s going to be a shot in the arm for the locals.” In a small community, the roundtables are designed to build relationships, said Neil Levy, who owns the Swiss Chalet restaurant. “That’s the biggest thing for me. We kind of think of that song from `Cheers’ where everybody knows your name,” he said. “That’s real important in the restaurant business.” When it comes to building relationships, the new position at Vectra Bank held by Andrea Hall reflects the wave of the future. “Relationships are the big thing here,” said Hall, who is the bank’s relationship banker. While most agreed the Internet is handy for web exposure, for Conrad, there is a downside for the flurry of information available. “Everyone and their brother want to look on the Internet and become a mortgage expert before they buy, or refinance, a house,” he said. “We struggle to convince people why they need to work with a mortgage professional as opposed to the internet.” To enhance the networking opportunities, the Chamber hosts an open house from noon to 4 p.m. Dec. 18.

Cripple Creek mines hide more than just gold In new book, past collides with present By Norma Engelberg

nengelberg@ourcoloradonews.com

MaryLee Allen, second from left, has been chosen as the Grand Marshal for the Lighter Side of Christmas parade Dec. 1. Pictured with Allen are her children and husband John, from left, Mitch, Allen, Julia, Maddie, John and Eddie. Courtesy photo

Allen selected as Grand Marshal Special to the Courier For almost 20 years, MaryLee Allen rose to the challenge of mentoring area girls when her daughter Julia joined the Girl Scouts. Selected as this year’s Grand Marshal of the Lighter Side of Christmas parade, Allen devoted additional time to help her troop members with their homework after conducting the meetings for two hours a week. “We wanted the girls to feel like they belonged and that this was their special

time,” Allen said. Over the years, Allen took the girls on outings to Santa Fe, N.M., the Black Hills of South Dakota, the Four Corners area and Glenwood Springs. “The part I miss about it the most is the interaction with the kids,” she said. Originally from Long Island, Allen moved to Woodland Park in 1980. Married for 26 years, Allen and her husband John have four children. “I was a paralegal secretary for 10 years and then had the opportunity to be a stayat-home mom,” she said.

“That allowed me to do all the things I did with the kids. I’ve loved it. I hope I’ve had a positive impact on the girls who have been in my troops and that they have good memories from it.” Allen started out riding in the annual Christmas parade with Troop #249 in the 1990s. This year’s parade theme, “A Colorado Christmas Cookie Carol,” recognizes the 100-year anniversary of Girl Scouts USA. The parade kicks off at 6 p.m. in downtown Woodland Park.

With 2,500 miles of tunnels, called drifts by miners, and about 400 shafts reaching into the earth more than 3,000 feet, it’s no wonder that writer Bert Entwistle came up with the idea that these old Cripple Creek mines could be hiding more than gold and mine tailings. In his new book, “The Drift,” three mysteries collide for danger and suspense as “Environmental Detective” Jack Bannister Bert Entwistle and his friends investigate the mines and modern miners in the Creek as he searches for 400-year-old Spanish armor, a Russian immigrant who disappeared 100 years ago and a modern criminal mastermind. Bannister has an office in a historic Colorado Springs bank building, his girlfriend works at the Pioneers Museum and his lead investigator tends to hang out in bars and police stations. The mystery starts with a chance encounter between Bannister and three men with hidden guns and not so hidden belligerence. When he encounters them again a day or two later, he knows something is going on and the investigation begins. The book will be a delight for mystery lovers, history buffs and anyone with an interest in old mines. People who visit Cripple Creek and Victor will even recognize the photo of the historic mine that graces the book’s cover. Entwistle first came up with the idea for the novel during a tour of the Mollie Kathleen Mine in Cripple Creek. “I thought, `wow, bad people could hide all kinds of

OPINIONS / YOURS AND OURS

Governor’s Pardon: Joe Arridy’s came 73 years too late “The correction of silence is what kills; when you know you have transgressed, and your friend says nothing and avoids your eye.” ___ Robert Louis Stevenson, 1882 “No man can justly censure or condemn another, because indeed no man truly knows another.” __ Sir Thomas Browne, 1642 But condemn, we did, all those years ago. “Just before he was executed and Colorado State Penitentiary in 1939, 23-year-old Joe Arridy was playing with a toy train and had a smile on his face,” wrote Peter Marcus in a recent Denver Daily News article. “His last three meal requests: ice cream, ice cream and more ice cream. It has been documented that when Arridy stepped into the gas chamber, he was still grinning like a little boy.” Last week, in one of his last official acts, Gov. Bill Ritter pardoned Joe Arridy, 72 years after the state killed the man with an I.Q. of only 46. “Granting a posthumous pardon is an extraordinary remedy,” according to a statement by the Governor’s office. “But the tragic conviction of Mr. Arridy and his subsequent execution on Jan. 6, 1939,

merit such relief based on great likelihood that Mr. Arridy was, in fact, innocent of the crime for which he was executed, and his severe mental disability at the time of the trail and execution. Pardoning Mr. Arridy cannot undo this tragic event in Colorado history. It is in the interests of justice and simple decency, however, to restore his good name.” Someone entered the Pueblo home of the Drain family in 1936 and attacked 15-yearold Dorothy and 12-year-old Barbara Drain with a hatchet. Dorothy was killed but her sister Barbara survived. Several days later, investigators arrested 35-year old Frank Aguilar for the terrible crime. The Drain girl’s father Riley Drain, had fired Aguilar from a Works Progress Admin-

istration job. They found a large hatchet with nicks that matched the injured girl’s wounds. At the same time however, railroad detectives picked up Joe Arridy as he wandered around the Cheyenne rail yard. Laramie County Sheriff George Carroll found out that man was missing from the Colorado State Home for Mental Defectives at Grand Junction and also knew of the homicide in Pueblo. According to Robert Perske, a former minister who wrote the 1995 book “Deadly Innocence?” about the case, “Carroll claimed Joe confessed to beating Dorothy with a club … He said he admitted to killing and raping the girl, so the sheriff called the news people and the chief of police in Pueblo.” Perske recently told AOLnews reporter David Lohr that “Carroll felt he was not worth anything,” and “(Carroll) wanted claim to fame, and this was his chance.” Other things pointed to Arridy’s innocence according to Governor Bill Ritter. “False and coerced confessions, the likelihood that Arridy was not in Pueblo at the time of the killing, and admission of guilt by someone else,” just to name a few. Aguilar, when tried in December of 1936

admitted to killing Dorothy Drain and told his attorney that Arridy had nothing to do with it, according to Perske’s research. Aguilar was later executed for the crime. Arridy’s trial went on anyway in April 1937 and using his alleged confession to Carroll and testimony from the Sheriff, Arridy was found guilty and sentenced to death. Arridy was awarded nine stays of execution and became the fast friend of the Warden Roy Best at the Colorado State Penitentiary before his “luck” ran out. “The chaplain had to give him the last rights of a child,” according to Perske account. “They recited the Lord’s prayer two words at a time, all the way through. Afterward, as they were walking up Woodpecker Hill, where the chamber was, Joe was talking to the warden about how he was going to be playing a harp now. He was smiling all the way up. It was kind of like he was going on a hike or something.” “When they put him in the chair, he was still smiling… When they started to put the black hood over Joe’s face, he stopped smiling, so the warden patted him on the arm a couple of times. The priest stayed with him for a bit and then walked out with the warden. Both had tears in their eyes. Then the door closed, and he was executed.”

Celebrating Red Planet Day Red Planet Day commemorates the launch of Spacecraft Mariner 4 on Nov. 28, 1964. This spacecraft sent back the first close-up images of Mars on July 14, 1965, snapping 22 pictures from 9,912 km (6,159.03 miles) during its flyby. There were a total of 10 Mariner spacecraft, seven of which successfully completed their missions, which were to explore Mars, Venus and Mercury. I remember the Mariner missions, especially the four that went to Mars because I fell in love with the Red Planet in seventh grade. That was the year I read my first “real” science fiction novel, “Red Planet” by Robert A. Heinlein. Before that introduction to hard sci-fi, my favorite books had been all 12 of Hugh Lofting’s “Doctor Doolittle” books, L. Frank Baum’s 14 “Oz” books and a variety of fairytales. Heinlein, Isaac Asimov, Ray Bradbury, Arthur C. Clark and other mid-20th century

sci-fi giants were inspired by Edgar Rice Burroughs and his Barsoom (Mars), novels I’m with them; I loved reading about John Carter and his adventures with Dejah Thoris Princess of Helium. It’s been kind of a letdown that modern robotic Mars explorers have found neither Martian Bouncers nor Martian princesses and not even “Uncle Martin.” Oh well, someday we will be the “real” Martians. Of course there is still one way for some

people to get to Mars, send their ashes. The idea of burial in space was first proposed in a novella by sci-fi writer Neil R. Jones, “The Jameson Satellite,” published in “Amazing Stories” in 1931. In 1997, Celestis, a subsidiary of Space Services Inc., began sending 1-4 grams samples of cremated remains to space, hitching rides on a variety of rockets that were going there anyway. The first burial in space included ashes from such notables as “Star Trek” visionary Gene Roddenberry, rocket scientist Krafft Ehricke and LSD proponent Timothy Leary, probably the highest he’s ever been. Majel Barrett Roddenberry’s ashes will be joining her husband in space soon. Some of astronomer Gene Shoemaker’s ashes are buried on the Moon. So far, the cremains going the farthest belong to Clyde Tombaugh, the American astronomer who discovered the dwarf planet Pluto in 1930. His ashes are aboard

New Horizons, a National Aeronautics and Space Administration spacecraft launched in 2006 for a 2015 flyby of Pluto and its moons. His will be the first human remains to escape the solar system. Boosting my ashes toward Mars sounds better than mixing them with bird seed and letting the birds disburse them or turning them into diamonds or glass ornaments for my kids to wear or dust. Yes, those really are options. While humans are waiting to become real Martians, however, let’s celebrate Red Planet Day by watching documentaries and movies and eating round red things like pizza and red apples or maybe a Mars Bar and a serving of a beet stew called “Angry Red Planet.” Adults could try the Red Planet Curiosity Cocktail.

giving a stressful nuisance for many. Nearly half of the 1,000 Americans surveyed across a myriad of income levels do not have enough money set aside to cover Christmas expenses. The nation’s economic doldrums only add to what is already an extremely stressful time of the year for a multitude of Americans leading to depression for many. “Joy to the World” has morphed to “Bah Humbug!” Mental health experts contend that depression peaks during the holidays affecting some 17.6 million Americans. A study by Pacific Health Laboratories found that 34 percent of men and 44 percent of women reported feeling “blue” this time of the year. There are many factors that can contribute to the “holiday blues’ besides financial constraints. Stress, fatigue, unrealistic expectations and the inability to be with one’s family and friends are all major contributors. The frantic demands of shopping, parties, family reunions and houseguests tend to exacerbate the situation. Many, who do not become clinically depressed, may develop other stress responses such as head-

aches, excessive drinking, over-eating and difficulty sleeping. Even more people experience post-holiday let down after Jan. 1 as a result of disappointments during the preceding month compounded by excess fatigue and stress. The National Mental Health Association offers the following suggestions for coping with stress and depression during the holidays. Keep expectations for the holiday season manageable. Try to set realistic goals for yourself and, most importantly, pace yourself. Organize your time and prioritize the important activities. Be realistic about what you can and cannot do. Leave “yesteryear” in the past and look toward the future. Each holiday season is different and needs to be enjoyed in its own special way. Try something new. Celebrate the holidays in a new way or start a new tradition. Do something for someone else. Volunteer some time to help others. Enjoy activities that are free, such as driving around looking at Christmas decorations, attending a free

Christmas concert or going window-shopping without buying. Spend time with supportive and caring people. Contact someone you haven’t heard from for a while or reach out and make new friends. Save time for yourself to recharge your batteries and remember excessive drinking will only increase your feelings of depression. Some nutritional experts believe holiday depression is caused by excessive intake of sugar and fatty foods. You may want to keep that in mind, while cruising through the holiday party buffet lines. And, here’s a final word of advice from yours truly. Exercise is a well-established means of releasing the body’s natural “feel good drugs,” endorphins. So, bundle up and get yourself outside for a morning stroll. It just might change your perspective this holiday season.

YOUR VIEW There is no grindstone

Once again Norma Engelberg has shown herself so out of touch with Teller County that her reporting is at minimum suspect and in reality shows the same liberal media bias that drives the media down financially. I am surprised the Pikes Peak Courier View wants that bias in their reporting. Her headline on Nov. 14, County keeps nose to GOP grindstone, clearly means that she does not agree with the majority in TC and wants to make sure we all know. With her pejorative headline she has offended a quarter of the residents and clearly 7909 voters. Norma there is no grindstone and nobody but you felt that they had their noses damaged. She appears to have abhorrence to the party that stands for life, that stands for balanced budget and stands for reducing the deficit. That party has kept TC healthy and vibrant during four years of both state and federal waste and push for further wast through higher taxation. It might be time for Norma to find a newspaper more in line with her attitude. Russ Frisinger Divide

The handbell choir members at Mountain View United Methodist Church are ringing the bells in celebration. Selected to appear with the Colorado Springs Chorale at the annual Deck the Hall event Dec. 7 at the Pikes Peak Center, the choir is a bit heady these days. “We played several songs for the Chorale director, Donald P. Jenkins,” said Gary Myers, the choir’s director. “Don hopped up and asked if we’d like to play at the Pikes Peak Center with the chorale.” Now that the choir is in the big league of music in the Pikes Peak Region, the 14 members are practicing with Jenkins as

well as the event’s pianist, Dan Brink. “It has been a fantastic experience for us,” Myers said. “These are the nicest people in the world.” With solo pieces in the second half of the performance, the handbell choir is also part of the dramatic “O Holy Night,” with piano, organ and the 120- voice chorale. Myers directs the piece. The 14-member choir reflects the participation of the congregation whose donors purchased the 61 bells of various sizes. “It’s a five-octave set,” Myers said. “And we have a five-octave set of chimes.” Deck the Hall concert is at 7:30 p.m. at the Pikes Peak Center in Colorado Springs.

Christmas Carol comes back to Butte Special to the Courier

For those who love Cripple Creek history and the classic Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol,” this holiday season will be a perfect past, present and future holiday experience. “A Cripple Creek Christmas Carol” returns to the Butte Theater in Cripple Creek, and is a holiday favorite with a combination of professional and community actors teaming up to present this timeless work. This popular show first took the stage in 2002 and was a favorite with locals and visitors alike. Thin Air Theatre Company (TATC) brings this show back to life and, as is the tradition with this Christmas show, offers a gift to the community of reduced ticket prices. All tickets for the show are discounted off the regular Butte season prices. The show was originally written for the Butte stage by Chris Armbrister and Chris Sorensen, former Imperial Player actors. Armbrister is one of the producers of TATC and Sorensen has written several other scripts for

the Butte stage in recent years, including the very popular “A Christmas Donkey” and “Haunting at the Old Homestead.” Based on the classic tale, the Cripple Creek version relies on 1890s gold discoverer Bob Womack to rescue the Scrooge-like Zachariah Gooch from his selfish ways. Womack, who discovered the gold that made Cripple Creek famous, died in poverty. He is aided in his task of saving Gooch by several other figures from the historic gold camp. The show is followed by a traditional Olio/Music Revue filled with holiday cheer and caroling. This production makes a perfect outing for the entire family. The show runs Nov. 30-Dec. 30. Ticket Prices: Thursday Matinee - Adult $13.25; Senior (62 plus) $11.25; Children (12 and under), $8.25; Groups of 12 plus $10.25; Groups of 20 plus $9.25 each.

CC-V enrollment slightly better than expected By Norma Engelberg

nengelberg@ourcoloradonews.com The official student count happened across the state in October. While some schools had fewer students than they expected, others were pleasantly surprised by the number of students enrolled this year. Cripple Creek-Victor RE-1 School District is one of the latter. District Superintendent Sue Holmes announced at the Nov. 19 school board meeting that the school has 327 full-timeequivalent students, seven more than expected. She said pre-school and kindergarten students are counted differently than older students. For example, even though kindergartners attend school full-time, they are only funded at 58

percent of the rate older students are funded. Pre-school and head start students are also counted differently and some have other funding sources. “Most rural school districts are losing students,” she said. “The economy is a big factor. A lot of people move away because they can’t afford the commute.” Enrollment is upward of 400 clients at the district’s Mountain Health Center because the center enrolls students and siblings from infancy to age 21. The clinic is regularly open from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday through Thursday but will be closed on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and New Year’s Day. The school board approved several policy changes to its zero tolerance policies, which have been relaxed somewhat by the state legislature. Two other

policies regarding Internet safety are in the process of being updated. Changes were approved on first reading. The board also appointed three people to the Head Start Policy Council Board, past head start parent Dyana Deakle, Dianna Baker representing the Aspen Mine Center and Becky Parham representing Victor. Another board member will be chosen by head-start and early head-start parents, said Patty Waddle, director of early childhood programs for the district. The Cripple Creek-Victor Schools Early Head Start facility will have a ribbon cutting at 1:30 p.m. on Dec. 18 in the Cresson Elementary School gymnasium, followed by tours and refreshments in the early head start building. The December board meeting has been scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Dec. 10.

State expands turkey hunting in 2013 Special to The Tribune and Courier Colorado Parks and Wildlife

There are a lot of people talking turkey this time of year. Roasted or deep-fried? White meat or dark? Do you want stuffing with that? But ask a Colorado bird hunter about turkeys, and you are more likely to hear them debate the Rio y Grande versus Merriam’s turkey. East Slope versus West Slope? Spring season or fall? t Once nearly wiped out in Colorado, there are more wild turkeys in the state now than ever before. According e to biologists at Colorado Parks and Wildlife, that makes it easier to find e places to see America’s largest game bird. “The increase of wild turkeys in 0 Colorado is due to their adaptability, high reproductive capability and careful management of hunting,” e said Brian Dreher, a senior terrestrial biologist for CPW. l Dreher said that Colorado wildlife r managers began developing strategies to increase the wild turkey population in the early 1980s. Over the ensuing years, the agency successfully - transplanted wild turkeys into most - of the available habitat in the state. Turkeys were plentiful in the North America at the time the Pilgrims landed, but as the colonists spread west, turkey populations plummeted

to around 30,000 birds by 1900. According to Dreher, wild turkeys faced a double whammy in the early years of our country. “There were no regulations to prevent over-hunting, and forests in the eastern (United States) were cut down for farmland and firewood,” he said. “Without trees and suitable habitat, the birds became scarce.” Today, wild turkeys are once again abundant across the nation due to modern turkey-management programs by state wildlife agencies and conservation groups such as the National Wild Turkey Federation. Wild turkeys are cunning, wary birds. They have excellent eyesight, can run 25 mph and can fly at 50 mph for short distances. These characteristics make wild turkeys a challenging quarry for hunters. “In 2013, there will be additional hunting opportunities in Game Management Unit 30 just north of Grand Junction,” said Brad Petch, a senior terrestrial biologist for the Northwest Region. “There will still be a youthonly hunt, but we’ve added additional hunting licenses available to adult hunters.” Colorado is home to two subspecies of wild turkey: the native Merriam’s and the Rio Grande, which was introduced to the state in 1980. The Merriam’s wild turkey lives primarily in open meadows and in ponderosa, oak brush and pinion juniper stands in mountainous zones

west of Interstate 25. The Rio Grande species inhabit cottonwood and riparian areas adjacent to agricultural lands in the eastern portion of the state. Wild turkeys mate in the early spring. Courtship usually begins while turkeys are still flocked together in wintering areas. Males attract females through a variety of calls, struts and displays including fanning their tail feathers. After mating, the hens begin searching for a nest site to lay eggs. Wild turkeys build nests in shallow dirt depressions surrounded by moderately woody vegetation to conceal it. Hens lay a clutch of 10-12 eggs during a two-week period, usually laying one egg per day. She will incubate her eggs for about 28 days, occasionally turning and rearranging them until they are ready to hatch. A newly-hatched flock must be ready to leave the nest within 12-24 hours to feed. Young turkeys, known as poults, eat insects, berries and seeds, while adults will eat anything from acorns and berries to insects and small reptiles. Turkeys usually feed in early morning and in the afternoon. Colorado Parks and Wildlife manages 42 state parks, more than 300 state wildlife areas, all of Colorado’s wildlife, and a variety of outdoor recreation. For more information, visit cpw.state.co.us.

Panthers shooting for turnaround season Woodland Park hits the court under new coach Herman By Danny Summers

sports@ourcoloradonews.com WOODLAND PARK - Something strange occurred at Woodland Park’s boys basketball practice on Nov. 19. “We were allowed to shoot a ball for the first time today,” said senior 6-foot-2 forward Jacob Censner. “We’ve been out here for two weeks and we’ve done a lot of conditioning, but we haven’t played with a real basketball until today.” The brainchild of Woodland Park’s new reality is Joel Herman. The first-year coach is old school. He is instilling the basics of the game - and his system - before any sort of high-flying act occurs. “There’s a different intensity level at my practices,” said Herman, who took over the program at the beginning of the summer. “I’m asking the boys to increase their performance every day. Put in a hard two hours every day.” Herman replaces long-time Panthers coach Brian Gustafson. The former coach and athletic director stepped down last spring so that he could focus on his administrative career with the district. The program has found victories to be few and far between in recent years. In fact, Panthers teams were a combined 6-59 the previous three seasons. “I don’t worry about what has happened in the past,” Herman said. “I’m asking the kids to change their mentality of basketball around here. We have a lot of work to do in terms of changing our mentality. I’m not looking for mediocrity. I’m looking for guys to step up. “We can’t out jump some of the team’s in the Springs, but I think we can take advantage of our altitude. We can be in better condition and better shape.” The situation is not as bleak as it appears. There are four players

Woodland Park hits the hard court with high hopes this season. Members of the Panthers include, top row from left: Dakota Herman and Jacob Censner; bottom row, Josh Stover, Mark Cannella and Evan Lays. Photo by Danny Summers (all seniors) on the team with at least two years of varsity experience - Censner, 6-1 guard Evan Lays, 5-10 guard Mark Cannella and 6-1 forward Josh Stover. “The mindset around here has changed,” Censner said. “We’re going to be in the best shape of our lives. Our effort is going to be out the roof.” Herman’s son, Dakota - a 6-1 sophomore swingman - is expect-

ed to fill the other starting spot. “We want to be able to control the tempo,” Dakota Herman said. “We can do that if we all work together.” Other key members of the team are 6-6 junior transfer Grady Thayer, senior swingman Cody Westfall, senior forward Ryan Crouse, senior guard Nate Longoria, junior guard Cody Hedges and sophomore forward Sam Hopfe.

“Sam is very athletic,” Joel Herman said. “He’s very long. Grady has a lot of work to do this year. Cody is going to bring a lot to our team.” His not set on his rotation, but he does envision using a platoon system. “We might four or five kids for four minutes, and then put in another four or five kids for four minutes,” Herman said. “We’re

just hoping the kids will be patient.” Herman’s top varsity assistant is Tim Ibarra. The junior varsity team is coached by Brandon Hansen, while Joe Roskam (the head football coach) is in charge of the C squad. “Joe brings great intensity; great enthusiasm,” Herman said. “And our C squad is made up of all freshmen.”

Panthers look to reach new heights Tall front line has Woodland Park thinking big By Danny Summers

sports@ourcoloradonews.com WOODLAND PARK - David Graf believes the time is now for his Woodland Park High School girls basketball team to enter the spotlight. “I’m really optimistic,” the coach said. “I’m really excited to be working with this senior group. They really do care about winning.” With the return of three starters, the Panthers find themselves in a favorable position to challenge for a playoff spot. The revamped Class 4A Metro League also gives the club reason to believe it can compete on a nightly basis. The eight-team conference includes Mesa Ridge, Harrison, Wasson, Mitchell, Widefield, Sierra and Coronado. “Confidence is a big thing with us,” Graf said. “A lot of these girls have played together for four years. They’ve been resilient. I believe it’s there time to shine.” The formidable trio leading the way is Hannah Erickson, Elin Saxon and Michelle Franke. They combined to average 19 points per game last season (the Panthers averaged just 28.4 ppg as a team). The 5-foot-11 Erickson was the team’s

Photo by Danny Summers MVP and honorable mention all league while leading the Panthers in scoring and rebounding. Franke led the team in assists, while Saxon (5-11) was second on the squad

in scoring and rebounding. “Hannah is good at finishing around the rim,” Graf said. “Michelle is a good ball handler with a strong work ethic and

a good leader by example. Elin is a strong wing who finishes well around the rim and a consistent 3-point shooter.” The Panthers should be one of the tallest teams in the league. Senior Reanna Marcengill (5-11) and junior Alexa Garrick (59) join Erickson and Saxon to form a solid force in the middle. Seniors Shannon Bingen and Courtney Norvell also is expected t see plenty of playing time. “Courtney has a certain intensity,” Graf said. “She didn’t play a lot last year, but she’s a talented player who has really come a long way in the time she’s been with us.” Graf will again install the Princeton offense, but he plans to give the girls a little more room to be creative. “I’m going to allow them a little more freedom to figure things out,” he said. “I’m excited to see what we do under the rim. But our big question always is are we going to score enough to be competitive.” Graf figures the top four teams in league should advance to the 48-team playoff bracket. He said it’s been at least eight years since Woodland Park made the postseason. Girls basketball is the only sport never to win a league title of any kind in the 122 years since the school opened. “One of our goals this year is to get a banner up on the wall,” Graf said. “I think we can be a very solid team by February. We just have to keep working hard.”

Panther grapplers up the intensity Woodland Park hits the mat under new coach Sieracki By Danny Summers

sports@ourcoloradonews.com

WOODLAND PARK - The Woodland Park High School wrestling room isn’t exactly the sweetest smelling spot in Teller County. But the perspiration dripping from the brows of those training in the facility can be intoxicating to those addicted to the sport. “We do everything as a team,” -said Woodland Park 215-pound senior Caelen Garner. “Everyone shows up and we’re ready to work.”

First-year head coach Keith Sieracki is the architect of the squad. The former Team USA wrestler competed on the world stage for two decades before opening his own studio and beginning a career as a high school coach. Sieracki worked under former Panthers coach Bill Barron last season. Barron stepped down in the spring to accept a similar position at a boarding school in New York State. But that situation didn’t work as planned, so Barron recently returned to the Pikes Peak region and is living in Black

Forest. “Bill did a good job of putting his reigns on me,” Sieracki said. “I can be pretty intense, but some of these kids are begging for more.” Garner, along with juniors Jake Morgan (138) and Daniel Corbett (145), are the team captains. It is their job, in part, to make sure the rest of the team stays in line with what Sieracki is preaching and teaching. “His practices are gnarly,” Morgan said. “He’s getting us in shape. That’s for sure. “He teaches us a lot of base stuff. He focuses a lot on technique.” Sieracki inherits a program that is thirsty for success. The Pan-

thers had no state qualifiers last year. Garner’s fifth-place finish at regionals was the best of anybody on the team. “We’ve definitely picked up the intensity in the wrestling room,” Sieracki said. “Six or seven of these guys are locked in, and whatever I say they’ll do it. The others are coming along. “We have some work ahead of us, but I seem some great things ahead of us, too.” Other key contributors include sophomores Jesse Weatherill (126) and Tommy Hancock (113), and juniors Josh Smith (170), Jonathan Hinton (160) and Micha Sanger (120). “Jesse and Tommy have made

a big commitment to off-season training,” Sieracki said. “If Jesse and Tommy wrestled Jesse and Tommy from last year they would destroy each other. “Tommy calls me almost every day asking me what he can do to make himself better.” The Panthers will be tested right away when they host a solid Palmer Ridge team tonight at 7 p.m. in the main gym. It will also be a reunion, of sorts, for Sieracki. His younger brother, Aaron, is an assistant coach with Palmer Ridge. “We’re both competitive,” Sieracki said. “I’m sure it will be a lot of fun.”

Rangers gear up for repeat run

;

L-P has the talent to contend for state title again By Danny Summers

sports@ourcoloradonews.com

MONUMENT - It’s hard to imagine the Lewis-Palmer boys basketball team being dbetter than last year’s squad that won 27 consecutive games on its way to winning the Class 4A state championship. - But there’s every reason to believe this -group of Rangers have all the right stuff to dbe a serious contender once again. “We’ve really been working hard this tpreseason, and if we keep working hard and set a new goal every day I love our chances,” fsaid senior 6-6 swingman Justin Smith. Smith, who signed with Idaho State earalier this month, scored the winning basket in last winter’s state championship game against Sierra. He is joined this season by two other returning starters - senior 6-6 swingman Jordan Scott and senior point guard Tyler Owens. “I have to find ways to get the ball to Justin and Jordan because they’re our marquee players,” said Owens, who averaged 5.4 epoints and 3.8 assists last season. f Owens and company open the season tomorrow night in Grand Junction when they play Palisade in the Warrior Classic at rCentral High School. That is followed by 2games against Grand Junction on Friday and Fruita Monument on Saturday. “Teams are definitely going to come afkter us,” Owens said. The biggest - literally - difference between this year and last year is the loss of

6-foot-10 center Josh Scott. The Colorado Gatorade Player of the Year averaged a whopping 28.5 points and 9.6 rebounds per game, while creating a presence in the middle unmatched by any team in the Centennial state. He led the Rangers to three consecutive Final Fours (L-P has gone to four straight overall). Scott is now starting for the University of Colorado. On Nov. 25, many of his former teammates (current Lewis-Palmer players) travelled to Boulder to watch Scott score a game-high 20 points and pull down seven rebounds in the No. 23 ranked Buffaloes’ 89-74 victory over Air Force. “It’s really cool,” said Jordan Scott, who averaged 12.6 points and 5.5 rebounds. “Being able to play with him for three years and seeing how that translates to college basketball is really exciting. Especially since he’s doing really well.” The feeling among the Rangers’ players is that the this year’s team will be more balanced, forcing other teams to not focus on stopping one player. “This year we have a lot of guys who can score,” said Smith, who averaged 12.2 points and 5.2 rebounds. “They can step up and hit shots and get to the rim. I think we’re pretty well rounded. If they take out one guy they still have to worry about the other guys out there.” Among other key players are junior guard Chase Stone, senior forward Dylan Tucker and senior guard Logan Jones. It is yet to be determined whether Lewis-Palmer will dominate opponents in the same manner as last season, when the average margin of victory was 28 points. It all starts with defense, according to Rangers coach Russ McKinstry.

Lewis-Palmer looks to repeat as state champions behind, from left, Justin Smith, Tyler Owens and Jordan Scott. Photo by Danny Summers “We’re going to have to be better from the shoulders up,” McKinstry said. “Last year we had the privilege of Josh who was correcting mistakes we made, so that allowed us to be over aggressive. We’re going to be doing a lot of the same thing, but we’re going to be a little more solid from the shoulders on up, meaning we’re going to have to think angles a little better. We’re going to have to pressure the ball and trap a little smarter.” McKinstry believes his team can be just as lethal offensively.

“We think Jordan and Justin are 15 to 20 points, with Tyler Owens being around the 10 to 12 points per game,” he said. “It might not be a year where we beat people by 30 every night, but we still feel like we have a lot of weapons. Whether we win by one or 30, our mentality is that we’re going to win in the defensive end, anyway.” Lewis-Palmer opens its home schedule next week with games against Pueblo West on Dec. 4 and Broomfield on Dec. 7. Broomfield defeated the Rangers in last year’s season opener, 67-65.
