Republican candidates for Douglas County District 1 commissioner Q&A with Diane Holbert

Q&A with Abe Laydon

City or town of residence: Parker, 15 years Profession: Current Douglas County commissioner Related elected-office or public-service experience: Douglas County commissioner, Douglas County treasurer, precinct leader and Republican volunteer of 15 years.

City or town of residence: Lone Tree, five years; Douglas County, 14 years Profession: A 15-year land-use and business attorney, he is a senior partner at Coan, Payton & Payne, LLC. Related elected-office or public-service experience: Second term as a Douglas County planning commissioner; former Douglas County Republican Party treasurer and first vice-chairman; as a graduate of the Leadership Program of the Rockies, he has also served as an officer and board member of multiple local nonprofits.

Why are you seeking this office? On April 9, the Douglas County Republican Central Committee selected me to fill the position of commissioner vacated by David Weaver, who was nominated by President Trump to be U.S. MarHolbert shal for Colorado. Fellow Republicans know I am a trusted conservative running to serve the people of Douglas County. What makes you the most qualified person for the position? A seven-year track record as county treasurer during which I saved taxpayers approximately $2.8 million, eliminated a tax and worked with the board of county commissioners to reduce the overall tax burden on businesses. I am accountable and transparent to constituents and championed an award-winning website that makes every dollar visible to taxpayers. Working with our partners in the community, both municipal and private, requires a commissioner who is professional and trusted. I have developed those crucial relationships throughout my career. My background in economics, treasury and cash flow management uniquely qualifies me to watch

the bottom line. What would your top two priorities be if elected? Governance. Every decision made from zoning and land-use to senior services needs to be made incorporating the all-encompassing question: Is this is the role of government? If government is not the answer, then I will keep it out of your business. Responsible growth. Growth brings vibrancy and opportunity to our community along with challenges to infrastructure and roads. I will continue the work already started with my fellow commissioners to ensure that our citizens can rely on safe and navigable roads by developing a comprehensive transportation master plan and continuing to provide mobile tools such as traffic alerts using Waze.

Why are you seeking this office? I have a huge heart to serve and want to leave Douglas County a better place for my children. In the same vein as my core belief from John 15:13, I see this role as a perfect way to offer up my life to my community and truly make a difference.

Laydon What makes you the most qualified person for the position? My combination of public service and private-sector experience makes me the most qualified and experienced candidate. In fact, I’m the only candidate in the race with land-use experience, when most of the county residents’ number one concern is growth and overdevelopment. During my tenure on the planning commission I have heard many challenging cases including Franktown Village, Sterling Ranch, Rueter-Hess Reservoir and much more. These cases contained detailed testimony on water, utility, transportation, metro district financing, land-use and property-rights issues. Through all of this, I have been an advocate and voice for the citizens of the county.

What else should the voters know about you? A vote for Diane Holbert is a vote for an independent thinker who will listen to constituents and not shy away from tough decisions. My decisions will be based on principles of limited government and upholding our constitution. I will represent you and I respectfully ask for your vote.

What would your top two priorities be if elected? My top two priorities are in response

to Douglas County residents’ concerns: growth and traffic. As a planning commissioner, I have consistently voted to support our citizens and communities against irresponsible growth and development. I will make sure that we always have amazing communities that are beautifully built, where citizens are included in the process. I am committed to protecting the true character of all of our neighborhoods. That means no development without water and adequate roads, no development that changes the fundamental character of our communities and no development that harms the quality of life in Douglas County. What else should the voters know about you? I’m a fifth-generation Coloradan from humble beginnings. I’m a watchdog, not a rubber stamp for special interests. I don’t have any conflicts of interest, taxpayers come first. I have no relatives employed by the county or in elected office already governing you. I also won’t take a single cent from developers or the marijuana lobby. As a non-politician with practical, real world experience, I am the people’s choice, not the politician’s choice.

Republican candidates for Douglas County clerk and recorder Q&A with Bob Kennedy

Q&A with Merlin Klotz

City or town of residence: Parker, 24 years Profession: Learning and development Related elected-office or public-service experience: State chairman for a Republican presidential candidate in 2016. Started out 14 years ago as a GOP assembly delegate, became a precinct leader, then a district captain. As district captain, served on and chaired several Douglas County Republican committees. Have been highly active in a number of candidate campaigns at the county and state level.

City or town of residence: Parker, since 2007 Profession: I passed the CPA exam in 1977 and spent my career in more than a dozen startup and rapid-growth situations ranging from construction to oil and gas production. I retired from the Denver Post, where I had been controller for the production plants, in 2008. Related elected-office or public-service experience: I was part of the initial effort to form Centennial in the 1980s and have been active in Parker Water and Sanitation District since 2008, becoming a board member in 2012. I was elected to serve as Douglas County clerk and recorder in 2014.

What would your top two priorities be if elected? My first priority will be to improve the quality of service of our motor vehicle registration department. Based on last year’s citizen survey, only 44 percent of citizens said they were very satisfied with that department’s performance. That has to change. My second priority will be technology upgrades. Technologically, Douglas County’s Clerk and Recorder’s office is 7-10 years behind other counties, such as Arapahoe and El Paso counties. Instead of constantly trying to catch up, we need to get ahead of changes in technology. Block chain voting is one of several examples that are coming faster than most residents and county employees realize.

Why are you seeking this office? I have always had a high degree of respect and admiration for previous Douglas County clerk and recorders. I want to restore the high level of service, professionalism and leadership to the office that Douglas County residents have become accustomed to in the past. Kennedy What makes you the most qualified person for the position? How county residents interact with government is evolving. Residents want government services that make their lives easier, that are more efficient, and that utilize the advances in technology they’re used to in other areas of their life. Partnered with good people skills, I have the leadership and advanced technology acumen to bring next generation solutions to local government. Some areas include using a phone app to easily renew license plates, making county records fully accessible through a cloud-based database, and exploring the feasibility and security of electronic block-chain voting. I bring high-level innovation to the office that my opponent doesn’t have.

What else should the voters know about you? I am a fiscal conservative. Since 2013, Douglas County’s population has grown 8.5 percent while the clerk and recorder’s office budget and size has unbelievably increased by 30 percent. As a budget hawk, I believe we need to bring the annual spending and size of the clerk’s office back to sensible levels.

Why are you seeking this office? I’m seeking re-election to continue the culture of customer service, innovation, technology and internal controls we have built during my first term. What makes you the most qualified Klotz person for the position? When I took office in 2015 Douglas population was 308,000. Today it is 346,000 and by the end of my second term at this growth rate it will be 420,000, a 32 percent growth. My experience in finding efficiencies and adjusting operations commensurate with growth, as I did during my first term, becomes even more important the next four years as the easy solutions have already been accomplished. The underlying challenge is that all base technology is controlled by the Department of Revenue, Secretary of State of U.S. State Department, so relationships and legislation are often required to effect change.

What would your top two priorities be if elected? My first objective is to address issues of space constraints and parking that today impact the clerk office’s ability to serve customers promptly. This will require a joint effort of facilities, the commissioners and the clerk. My second objective is to improve service to seniors and our handicapped population. Access to the Wilcox building is marginally ADA compliant. And, legislation may be required to allow mobile ID services in the Driver License division. What else should the voters know about you? My MO has always been conceptualizing, planning and executing large and difficult projects. This requires an understanding of finance, budgets, business plans, law, construction, etc. But more than that it requires relationships and the willingness, fortitude and perseverance to change law, or take legal action to achieve the end.

Republican candidates for Douglas County treasurer Q&A with Dave Gill

Q&A with Bob Muni

City or town of residence: The outskirts of Sedalia, 33 years. Profession: Commercial mortgage banker, residential mortgage lender, auditor, photographer. Related elected-office or public-service experience: Former Chairman of the Douglas County Planning Commission, Republican District captain and precinct committeeman. Why are you seeking this office? I’ve been active in our county for 30 years and desire to continue to contribute to keeping it the best county in Colorado to live. I’ve been able to contribute to help shape its quality of life and desire to continue serving the citizens of Douglas County. Gill What makes you the most qualified person for the position? My many years of experience in the financial industry, including successfully running my own company, gave me a familiarity with bonds, the primary investment that statute allows. I was recruited and trained as an auditor by a $20 billion thrift and also audited at the RTC, where I was entrusted with auditing the largest contracts and sensitive special assignments. This experience is critical to safeguarding the tax money entrusted to the treasurer. I have experience managing a staff roughly four times the size of the treasurer’s office and being responsible for a budget equal to the treasurer’s.

What would your top two priorities be if elected? My top priority would be to safeguard the assets entrusted to the treasurer’s office with experience, diligence, and integrity while maintaining liquidity and achieving the best yield consistent with statute, county investment policy and safety. My second priority is to maintain a lean and efficient office that provides high quality service to the citizens of Douglas County. I’ve managed staffs of up to 36 and have learned how to manage to achieve this goal. What else should the voters know about you? I’m a conservative with a 30-year track record in our county that demonstrates that I can and will work diligently and to provide high-quality service while maintaining a tight budget. I’ve been married to my wife, Anne, for 46 years and attend the Rock Church in Castle Rock.

City or town of residence: Highlands Ranch, five years and nine months Profession: Senior Loan Officer, Mortgage Lender Related elected-office or public-service experience: Appointed by three Republican governors as chairman of the board of trustees for statewide school district overseeing a government budget of over $120 million. Member of Denver Senior Coalition, Financial Services Professionals, National Association of Realtors, Colorado Association of Realtors, South Metro Denver Realtor Association. Board member for nonprofits working with Head Start graduates and at-risk youth. Board member, Hope Online Learning Academy. Why are you seeking this office? I have a heart to serve, the skillset to lead and the drive to accomplish what needs to be done in this capacity. I am experienced and want to use my expertise to maintain the integrity of this office while protecting your assets. Good stewardship is my top priority.

Muni What makes you the most qualified person for the position? My experience is perfectly suited to the duties of treasurer. I am familiar with large government budgets. As a pastor, missionary and serving on nonprofit boards, I have honed the skills to stretch dollars, find savings and achieve a high level of stewardship protecting other people’s money. I successfully managed the mortgage department of a community bank, increasing my knowledge of banking and finance. I have spent the last 26 years managing money and people as a lender and realtor. I have managed staffs up to 32, overseen corporate and government audits and financial reporting for non-profit organizations.

What would your top two priorities be if elected? My top two priorities as treasurer are to serve the best interests of the citizens by ensuring tax dollars are invested wisely and remaining vigilant in fighting waste, fraud and abuse. I will strive to maximize efficiencies to save and stretch tax dollars. The Douglas County treasurer’s office will be transparent and accountable to all the citizens in Douglas County. What else should the voters know about you? I have been married for 41 years, have five grown married children and seven grandchildren. We attend Cherry Hills Community Church, serving on the Alpha Team. We homeschooled all our children and led the efforts to change the laws thereby legalizing home education. Our family spent five years as missionaries in New Zealand planting a church. I have strived to benefit others in whatever I have done, from vocational ministry, to serving on many boards, to helping people in the largest financial transaction of their lives as a realtor and lender.

City or town of residence: Castle Rock, almost nine years Profession: Talent acquisition consultant/recruiter Related elected-office or public-service experience: None Why are you seeking this office? I am running because I truly want to make our country and our community safe and put an end to extreme partisan politics that are driving the focus away from what our community needs to thrive. Our state needs legislators who will work to improve infrastruc- Kombo ture, including accessible public transportation to cut down on the traffic through the I-25 corridor, place funding back into our public schools, and develop a health-care model that is both affordable and quality-driven. What makes you the most qualified person for the position? In addition to a busy mom of four, I am a small business owner, and a proud American. As a small business owner I would support economic development in my district that would not only attract large business but help small businesses thrive as well. Prior to starting my business, I worked in health care for 10 years for the largest health-care organization in Colorado. Working in health care as a project coordinator, physician recruiter, and clinic supervisor gave me insight into the issues we are facing in regards to health care in our state.

What would your top two priorities be if elected? My priority is protecting the safety and well-being of the people in this community while making sure we are not infringing on the rights of law-abiding citizens. We need common-sense legislation like the Red Flag Bill to protect people from harming themselves and others by way of a temporary restraining order to remove firearms from their possession. The people benefiting from the Second Amendment the most are the gun manufacturers and gun dealers. We can’t have a bottom line determine our safety. Second, I will pursue all avenues to make sure our health-care system works for everyone. This includes fighting for quality and affordable health care, and affordable drug prices. In addition, we are not meeting the needs for mental health treatment in our state. What else should the voters know about you? I am the right Kombo for the community and the right Kombo for Colorado! I want to work for the great people of the this state and also make history by being the first African-American to represent HD 45!

Q&A with Donna Lynne

City or town of residence: Denver, previously Evergreen (Colorado since 2005) Profession: Lieutenant governor and chief operating officer of Colorado. Related elected-office or public-service experience: I have worked in both the public and private sector for the past 42 years. I worked for the City of New York in many senior-level positions, including senior vice president for the safety net hospital in New York and was also the director of operations in New York City. Why are you seeking this office? This state needs a governor who understands how to manage billiondollar budgets and who is willing to do the hard work to get things done. I have been to all 64 counties and visited with working families who are struggling to afford health care and housing. I have the experience Lynne to tackle these tough issues. What makes you the most qualified person for the position? I have spent the last 42 years working in both the private and public sectors. I earned a doctorate in public health and spent 11 years as the executive vice president of Kaiser Permanente managing 16,000 employees and a $9 billion budget. I fought back against Washington last year to protect access to health care for 76,000 children from working families. I worked very hard to increase our state’s investment in education, transportation and broadband this past session. We need a strong governor to stand up for our public lands and who will protect our water and wild spaces. I will fight for Colorado. What would your top two priorities be if elected? My top two priorities will be reduc-

ing the cost of health care and affordable housing. I support universal health care but feel we must address the outsized profits the health care and pharmaceutical industries are making on the backs of working families. We must reduce those profits if we want to significantly reduce health-care costs and expand access. The lack of affordable housing is impacting families across Colorado. I will treat that lack of access like the crisis it is. I will immediately create a Cabinet-level position to begin working with cities and counties across the state to address this issue. The governor can and should be a leader to ensure everyone has access to affordable housing. What else should the voters know about you? My parents both served in the Navy during World War II — so I have appreciation for our veterans and their value to our communities. I paid my own way through college, and I raised three kids as a single mom. I know what families are going through because I have lived it. Throughout my career, I have been a consensus-builder and problem-solver. That’s what I will do as your governor.

Q&A with Jared Polis

City or town of residence: Boulder native; lived there most of my life. Profession: Entrepreneur, florist and public servant. Founder of ProFlowers.com, TechStars, Patriot Boot Camp, American Information Systems, Bluemountain.com. Related elected-office or public-service experience: U.S. congressman, former chair of the Colorado State Board of Education, founder of the New America School and the Academy of Urban Learning. Why are you seeking this office? With the federal government moving in the wrong direction, it’s up to the states to lead. Right here in Colorado, we can move forward with a bold vision to build a great public education system, unleash our state’s renewable energy potential and build an economy that works for everyone. What makes you the most qualified person for the position? I’ve successfully worked across the aisle to solve problems for Colorado and accomplish progressive goals during my time in Congress. That’s the type of leadership Coloradans can expect from me as their governor. I led the way in rewriting No Child Left Behind to better serve our schools and our children and got results in building affordable workforce housing for my constituents. And I was Polis proud to work alongside President Barack Obama toward passage of the Affordable Care Act, which expanded health care for hundreds of thousands of Coloradans. What would your top two priorities be if elected? I’m running on a bold vision of bringing free full-day universal preschool and kindergarten to every Colorado child, making Colorado 100 percent powered by renewable energy and providing universal, affordable health care to every Coloradan. What else should the voters know about you? I’m the dad of two amazing kids, I started schools for new immigrants and homeless youth, and I’m the only former florist currently serving in Congress!

Republican candidates for governor Q&A with Greg Lopez

City or town of residence: Elizabeth, for 21 years. Profession: Small-business owner, restaurant and consulting. Related elected-office or public-service experience: Mayor of Parker, 1992-96; President of board of directors for Denver Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, 2004-05; Colorado director of U.S. Small Business Administration, 2008-14. Why are you seeking this office? As governor, I will protect, preserve and promote the various economies and the different ways of life that make Colorado the great state that it is. I truly understand that there are 64 counties in the state and that it’s about all of Lopez us — not just some of us. What makes you the most qualified person for the position? I sat on the board of E-470 and the Denver Regional Council of Governments, so I know transportation, water, air quality, economic and regional issues. I am the former Colorado director of the U.S. Small Business Administration. I understand that small business is the heart and soul of every community. I served in numerous education committees and economic-development councils. I know how to address growth and the elements that impact the quality of life in any community. What would your top two priorities be if elected? Water and education. Colorado

is a state where “life” is written in water. The future of our state lies in the balance as we look for ways to manage our water resources to accommodate the growth in state population, agricultural uses and recreational uses. We need to bring back vocational and technical training back into the high schools because not everyone can afford to or wants to go to college. High-school graduates need to be job-ready on day one, not college-ready. You can achieve the “American dream” without having to go to college. What else should the voters know about you? I come from humble beginnings: My parents were migrant workers and worked long hours in the fields. I am a disabled veteran (hearing loss), the only veteran running for governor. I know what a public servant truly is, and I will go as far as the Lord wants to take me.

Ducks have their day BY JESSICA GIBBS JGIBBS@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Crowds gathered at Festival Park in Castle Rock on June 9 for the annual Ducky Derby fundraiser, put on by the Castle Rock and Castle Pines Rotary clubs. In the park were vendors, snacks and activities such as a bouncy house for children, but true to tradition the highlight of the event was the rubber duck “race” down Plum Creek. Eventgoers walked roughly a quarter mile down the Plum Creek Trail to the start of the race on Plum Creek, where hundreds of rubber ducks were dumped into the creek. The first to cross the finish line downstream won cash prizes for people who purchased tickets, each corresponding with a duck. Proceeds benefit local charities, including the Douglas/Elbert Task Force and the Women’s Crisis Center.

People lined the banks of Plum Creek to watch the start of the Ducky Derby race.

Rotary and Boy Scout volunteers guided ducks down the creek with lacrosse sticks.

Murdoch’s sets sights on former King Soopers building Anchor store vacant for one year could come back to life BY JESSICA GIBBS JGIBBS@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

In the words of Councilmember George Teal, it’s been one of the worst-kept secrets in town. For several years, according to a town document and a company representative, Murdoch’s Ranch & Home Supply has wanted to break into the Castle Rock market. And true to speculation, the Montana-based chain — which operates 31 stores spanning five states — has closely eyed a location in the Milestone Center at 188 Founders Parkway. The next nearest Murdoch’s locations are in Parker and Highlands Ranch. On June 5 the town council approved an incentive agreement to help Murdoch’s move into Castle Rock. The deal entails a 25 percent sales tax shareback for Murdoch’s, not to exceed four years or $300,000, and requires they sign a 10-year lease at Milestone. The town estimates Murdoch’s sales would generate $240,000 of net taxable revenue for Castle Rock in its first year. The approval did not come without scrutiny from town council, but the need to fill a vacant anchor store at the shopping center ultimately trumped concerns. Council approved the deal in a 4-2 vote with Mayor Jennifer Green and Councilmember Jason Bower voting no. Milestone Center is home to an assortment of shops, including a liquor store and dry cleaners. However, its anchor space, a 70,000-square-foot box store, has stood vacant since May 2017, when King Soopers moved roughly a mile away to its new location at the Promenade, becoming a bustling supercenter complete with a deli, grocery store, clothing, home goods and more. Mark Challis, who owns a Papa Murphy’s in the Milestone Center, said he heard talk well before King Soopers moved that Murdoch’s may replace it. Still, a year went by. The former grocery store and its parking lot served as little more than a ghost town since King Soopers’ departure, which took with it the traffic an anchor tenant provides neighboring businesses of any shopping center. Over the seven months remaining in 2017, sales in the area declined more than 11 percent. The center lost several tenants, including a Massage

A former King Soopers location in Castle Rock has stood vacant for more than a year, causing a decrease in sales at the shopping center and decreasing traffic in the area. JESSICA GIBBS Green, Mattress Firm, Le Peep and Starbucks. “We knew it would not be good for business. We were disappointed,” Challis said of King Soopers’ move, adding he owns eight Papa Murphy’s locations in the south metro area. With King Soopers, the Milestone Center was one of his busiest locations. “It went from being incredibly busy to the next day having an empty parking lot,” he said. Same-store sales still managed to grow by 20 percent at Papa Murphy’s, Challis said, but that didn’t guarantee the store’s future. “We know that we can never reach our potential in that particular location without a store anchor being there,” Challis said. “People have to become far more intentional about visiting our location.” Under the incentive agreement struck June 5, Murdoch’s would fill 50,000 square feet of the old King Soopers, leaving the remaining space for a to-be-determined tenant. The cost of turning a former grocery store into a Murdoch’s, or any other retailer, is significant, said Marcus Notheisen, vice president of the Castle Rock Economic Development Council, during the June 5 discussion with council. Namely, the grocery store’s air conditioning ran through its coolers, not a traditional HVAC system. That would need to be replaced, in addition to other changes. The work is one reason Murdoch’s requested an incentive. “I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that there are drawbacks,” Notheisen said in his closing comments on the agreement. SEE BUILDING, P10

Ability to get around downtown in spotlight

Castle Rock evaluating downtown transportation issues in latest study BY JESSICA GIBBS JGIBBS@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Castle Rock updated its Transportation Master Plan in 2017 and reviewed downtown parking procedures through a Downtown Parking Study, but this month the town embarked on another transportation mission — a Downtown Mobility Study. The latest report will look at the downtown core as a unique area within Castle Rock, one with different transportation needs than the remainder of town. Town staff and their consultants, Kimley Horn and Associates, have already talked to stakeholders such as the Colorado Department of Transportation, Douglas County, and the town fire and police departments. On June 6 they held the first public meeting in the study, attended by roughly a dozen residents. “Tonight, what we really want to understand are your core values,” said Troy Russ, a transportation practice builder with Kimley Horn. The goal of the Downtown Mobility Study will be to improve transportation in an area where widening streets or intersections is not compatible with the surrounding land use, Russ said. The study will also be about more than simply how to move cars. “Downtown is a very unique setup where we can’t go in and do our traditional transportation improvements,” said Tom Reiff, transportation planner with Castle Rock. Aside from moving more cars, typically done through bigger roads or a more efficient system, the study will also look at how the town can draw on improving other modes of transportation. Industry examples include bike

Castle Rock already has a saturated retail market and stores with similar goods and services to Murdoch’s, he said. Additionally, about 500,000 square feet of space is still expected to be built at the town’s Promenade shopping center, Councilmember Bower said. Mayor Green noted the property’s previous owner, Kroger, in May sold the old King Soopers building to a company owned by Gary Dragul, who was recently charged with nine felonies related to his conduct in the real estate industry. Although the town’s deal would be with Murdoch’s, Green said, the connection left her “really nervous.” A spokesman for Murdoch’s told Green the company had similar reservations,

lanes, HOV/HOT lanes or making areas more pedestrian-friendly. Another approach is to move fewer people fewer miles, by creating areas where residents can live, work and shop within walkable distances. During the June 6 meeting, Russ led attendees through various exercises, including one asking them to identify trouble spots in the downtown. They came up with a lengthy list including inconsistent speed limits, congested interstate on-ramps, underutilized land use in the southern downtown area and difficult crosswalks. The group also identified their top values for the area: • A downtown with historic character, oldtown charm and a friendly feel. • Ease of mobility and accessibility. • Downtown entertainment options like dining and shopping. • A community gathering place for events, provided through Festival Park. • A walkable area with good access to trails. Bruce Johnson, a Castlewood Ranch resident, attended the meeting because he is interested in making the downtown “more of a destination than a place to go through,” he said. “We’re downtown at least once a week,” he said. “Usually it’s going out to eat, a festival, you know, shopping.” Johnson envisions a downtown with better access for pedestrians and less through traffic, something he says might be more complicated once the mixed-use Riverwalk development is completed. “There’s obviously going to be a huge number of people coming and going from that facility,” he said. Russ said the team would be taking all the June 6 group comments into account as the study progresses through the next phases. The goal is to complete the report, including potential solutions, by the end of 2018. The town is still gathering input on the study. Residents can go to CRgov.com/MoveAroundDT to submit feedback online.

but still wanted to proceed with leasing the space. Prior to voting against the agreement, Bower questioned why the recently sold King Soopers store was not first listed for sale publicly, allowing the free market to potentially fill the space. “I would rather see a property like this be put up for sale before we subsidize it,” Bower said. But with enough council support, the agreement got the green light. A timeline for Murdoch’s to move into the store was not immediately clear. Those are questions Challis said he still wants answered, but regardless, he’s hoping Murdoch’s can bring life back to Milestone Center. “I’m not going to say it will be the same as having a King Soopers, but boy, it will be nice to have a well-known brand,” Challis said. “I’m actually excited about their coming.”

For the fourth summer in a row, the Nutrition Services team at the Douglas County School District is offering free lunch for kids and teens, Monday through Friday, at various times and locations across the county. “It’s a pretty amazing program,” said Jennifer Peifer, manager of operations for the school district’s Nutrition Services team. “The rules allow us to provide free lunch to any kid age 18 and under, regardless or their status, where they are from or what district they are in. There are not a lot of resources like that in a relatively affluent district like this.” Federally funded, the Summer Food Service Program is a state-administered program that reimburses school districts that serve free meals to adolescents and children in low-income areas, according to the Department of Agriculture. Douglas County enacted the program to address a need: 12 percent of students in the district qualify for free or reduced lunches, according to the district. That breaks down to 8,144 students in grades pre-K through 12. “For those of use who work in nutritional program, our whole goal is to be a consistent source of healthy meals for kids, to guarantee they are going to have a healthy meal every day, regardless of what they have at home,” Peifer said. “This really fills that gap in the summertime for a lot of those kids.” Wearing shirts with DCSD’s logo,

School board approves new pay-raise system ‘Our messed-up way of compensating over the last few years has created disparity’ BY ALEX DEWIND ADEWIND@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

The Douglas County School Board is prioritizing compensating employees for what its members call the “inequity and unfairness” caused by reforms enacted by previous board members. At a June 5 meeting, six board members — Kevin Leung was absent — unanimously voted to enact one of five options for pay raises provided by district staff. In the 2019-20 school year, licensed employees, including teachers and administrators, will receive a 2 percent raise for each year of a pay freeze they experienced. In addition to the 2 percent raise, licensed employees and administrators on the district’s performance evaluation systems will receive a 3.2 percent flat raise. All other employee groups will receive evaluation-based raises. “I think what we want to do as a board is symbolically say we recognize that we have some employees that are hurting,” school board President David Ray said at the meeting in Castle Rock. “Our messed-up way of compensating over the last few years has created

disparity, has hurt morale.” District salaries were frozen from 2009-12 because of budget shortages. In 2009, county residents elected school board members who would vote for numerous reform policies over the next several years. The school board hired Elizabeth Fagen as superintendent in 2010, and two years later, the district introduced a market-based pay system, which determined teacher pay by education, experience and skill, as well as by the supply and demand of the position. In addition, raises were offered yearly based on effectiveness ratings ranging from highly effective to ineffective rather than on tenure and level of education. Many community members said the evaluation and salary systems spurred an exodus of quality educators. Last September, the school board voted to suspend the differentiated pay structure for licensed teachers and administrators, replacing it for one year with uniform pay raises while it reassessed the pay-structure systems. After eight years of an often-controversial majority of reform-minded board members, voters elected four new members to the Douglas County School Board last November. The new school board made a commitment to address teacher retention and teacher pay. “One of the reasons I asked to do this volunteer job is because the district hasn’t valued teachers,” said board

member Krista Holtzmann. “Compensation hasn’t been sufficient.” The pay-raise option approved by board members addresses the concern that licensed employees hired after the pay freeze are making more money than licensed employees who started before or during the pay freeze. About 3,122 employees experienced part of the pay freeze, according to Steve Collela, chief human resources officer at the district. Of those, 1,531 were licensed employees. Providing a 2 percent pay raise to licensed employees would cost the district approximately $4.8 million, according to Colella’s presentation at the board meeting. The new pay system grants evaluation-based raises to all other employee groups, including classified positions, like food service workers, bus drivers and secretaries. Individuals rated “highly effective” will get a 3.2 percent raise; those rated “effective” will get a 2.8 percent raise; and those rated “partially effective” will get a 0.75 percent raise. “The other thing I like about option 5 is that certainly there is a piece that recognizes who is highly effective and performing well,” said board member Anthony Graziano. “Ideally, this shows the kind of direction we would like to head as a group, as a board.” Classified employee Les Lilly, who has worked for the district as a bus driver for 36 years, was disappointed with the board’s decision. He thinks

granting licensed employees who experienced the pay freeze a 2 percent raise is unfair. He suggests the board give all employees who experienced the pay freeze a 1 percent raise, and another 1 percent raise if a tax measure is put on the ballot and approved this fall. “It’s cohesiveness, it’s working together as a team,” Lilly said. “So treat us as a team.” District staff recommended the board choose option 1, which outlines a 4.6 percent flat raise for licensed employees and administrators who are rated using evaluation tools. All other employee groups would receive evaluation-based raises. Interim Superintendent Erin Kane pointed out that the recommendation would only be applicable for the upcoming school year. “This is not a restructure of how pay works in Douglas County schools,” said Kane. “This is only next year’s pay raise. The restructuring will be at the hands of the board and the new superintendent.” The new superintendent will be Thomas Tucker, the current superintendent of Princeton City Schools in Cincinnati, Ohio. His five-year term will begin on July 1. Ray argued that option 1 did not consider the employees who endured the pay freeze. The school board is “looking at the people who have been hit the hardest,” he said.

More funding secured for I-25 Gap widening project $65 million grant awarded to El Paso County

Rivals Mike Johnston, a former state senator, and U.S. Rep. Jared Polis accused Kennedy of reneging on a cleancampaign pledge after a pro-Kennedy PAC ran an ad smearing their records on K-12 schools and higher education. Kennedy garnered the support of the powerful Colorado Education Association teachers’ union and has trumpeted her role in writing a constitutional amendment that was designed to increase public schools funding yearly. Johnston, a former school principal and state senator, challenged Kennedy to disavow the ad in a recent debate. She declined to do so. With repeated mass shootings, he’s also holding citizen forums to discuss gun policy — including “red flag” laws intended to temporarily remove weapons from those deemed a threat to themselves or others. Polis is a five-term congressman, former state board of education member and self-made millionaire and philanthropist whose platform emphasizes publicly funded preschool and kindergarten, forgiveness of college debt, single-payer health care and renewable energy. He, too, attacked

Kennedy for the ad and cites his own education credentials, which include founding New America Schools in Colorado and New Mexico for immigrant young adults. Lt. Gov. Donna Lynne casts herself as a nonpartisan manager and problem-solver, citing her extensive leadership experience in health care and as Hickenlooper’s “chief operating officer.” Lynne has focused on another major issue for Democrats: Protecting President Barack Obama’s health care law while seeking ways to lower health care costs and expand coverage. Republicans State Treasurer Walker Stapleton heads a field that collectively vows to defend any Democratic attempt to tamper with Colorado’s constitutional Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights, which leaves it to voters to approve tax hikes. All vow to fight any Democratic move toward a single-payer health system. Despite prodigious fundraising, Stapleton stumbled his way into the primary after citing possible fraud by a contractor who gathered petitions on his behalf. He has recently aligned himself with President Donald Trump on immigration and other issues, but faces rivals’ questions over his participation in a bid by lawmakers to rescue Colorado’s state employee pension plan.

ennifer said, “Sip?” “What is it?” “Iced tea.” She handed me a plastic cup. I like iced tea. I was about to take a sip when I noticed a label on the cup with some suspicious looking words: “Three pumps, no water.” “What’s this?” I said. “Uh.” Iced tea used to be iced tea. But not anymore. Years ago, I wrote coffee’s obituary. Now it looks like I have to write one for iced tea. I drink black coffee. I make minor allowances for cream and sugar for others. And that is it.

as if I just woke up after a dream about Ethel Merman. The dog went out through the dog door. A painting fell off the wall. I held my head in my hands and said, “You too?” “Yes.” We ruin everything. At least that’s the way I look at it. Oreos used to be Oreos. I thought I came home with Oreos, but somewhere between the grocery store and my kitchen counter they turned into Swedish Fish Oreos with Double-Stuf. The complete list of Oreos now on the market sounds like I made up half of it: Mystery Oreos, Cherry Cola Oreos, and you can even get No-Oreos Oreos. No-Oreos Oreos are just the “Stuf.”

Cynthia Shipp Lone Tree Holbert is the right choice I am writing to declare my unequivocal support of Diane Holbert for Douglas County commissioner. I have known Ms. Holbert for five years. She and I serve together in a Christian organization. All of those in leadership in this organization commit a great deal of time serving others and receive no pay for their efforts. My support is based on two issues that I see sorely missing from politics today: integrity and selfless service. Sadly, the virtue of integrity has become optional in our political system.

enough to receive unconditional love from them, that is wonderful and amazing. But the unconditional love I am referring to and that is such an awesome feeling is the unconditional love for them as their father. Regardless of the mistakes and poor choices they may have made, and despite the anger we may have felt or angst that they put us through, as a father there is just no greater feeling than loving your children and loving them unconditionally. As I look back on my own poor choices, mistakes and errors in judgment over my entire life, I have even greater love and appreciation for my children and for their drama and mistakes, as most times they were nothing in comparison to my own. I’ll bet you can appreciate that too. There are many among us who have lost a child, and I cannot even imagine what that must feel like. Some were lost to accidents, some to illnesses, and

officials, but also with those in the judicial and law enforcement areas. When you work closely with someone for five years, you know whether or not they have integrity. I know that Ms. Holbert does. The next virtue that I see in Ms. Holbert is that of a selfless servant. Her life is incredibly full: a mother of children still at home; previous treasurer of Douglas County; devoted wife to a husband who serves in the Colorado Senate. Yet, in spite of all of these demands, she still finds the time to lead a group of women in the Christian organization in which we both participate. Our political system works best when it is composed of servant leaders. Again, I know that Diane Holbert has the heart of a servant. Integrity and selfless service.

some to other circumstances such as drugs or alcohol or depression. My heart breaks for those of you who have had to experience that as it truly must be so difficult on days such as Mother’s Day or Father’s Day. And here is where that unconditional love comes in again. Pain and grieving are very real, yet so is unconditional love and finding a way to focus on a memory, a beautiful memory, a smile, a laugh, or just all the good and happy times. A father’s love finds its way to forgiveness and finds its way to unconditional love. Father’s Day is a special day to be honored and remembered as a father and as a dad, but it is also a day to honor and remember the people who call us father, dad, pop, or papa. As always, I would love to hear your story at gotonorton@gmail.com, and when we can experience that feeling of unconditional love for our children, it really will be a better than good week.

The girl said, “We’re out of coffee.” I looked around: the place was packed with people drinking something, and employees were handing cups of something though the driveup window. “What’s all of that?” “Flavored coffees. Foamed coffees. Sprinkled, dusted, and twigged coffees. We’re brewing a pot of black coffee for freaks like you. Ready in a minute.” (Minor exaggeration, to make a point.) As a writer, I rely upon modifiers. But some things — coffee, iced tea, and hot dogs — don’t need them. If absolutely necessary, hold the onions.

OBITUARIES CURTIS

Carol Jean Curtis

April 18, 1928- June 7, 2018

Long time Douglas County resident, loving mother, and cherished grandmother Carol Jean (Vance) Curtis, of Sedalia, CO, passed away peacefully in her home as the sun rose the morning of June 7th, 2018. Carol was widowed in February and she survived without her husband for 100 days before God decided to reunite them. Carol was born April 18, 1928 in Coldwater, Kansas, to Nona and Coy Vance. She was the fourth of eight children. Carol grew up valuing hard work and the craziness of large families. She was a talented musician and excelled at playing trumpet. She enjoyed touring with her school marching bands throughout the states of Kansas and Colorado. Carol called herself a “recovering Kansan” because she transplanted to Douglas County when she was 16 years old. She felt blessed to live in “God’s Country” and immediately adopted Colorado as her home. She met the love of her life, Dave Curtis, upon entering Douglas County High School the first day of her junior year. They were married three years later on April 4, 1948 and started their life on Oaklands Ranch, the Curtis family homestead in Sedalia. Even though Carol adored being a farmer’s wife, she also had several jobs outside of the home. Her favorite occupation was working for Douglas County High School as the secretary to the principal. She also worked in an administrative position in the Operations & Maintenance division. Carol was employed with Douglas County School District for over twenty years. Carol and Dave were active in Young Farmers & Homemakers and were fond of square dancing. Carol always had a smile and a sassy or silly remark for everyone. Her sense of humor was subtle and sometimes cynical, but the twinkle in her eye always gave her away. She was strikingly beautiful up until the day she left this world. Carol enjoyed gardening, sewing, refinishing/repairing wood furniture, baking,

music, and politics. She was radically conservative with her Republican views and she listened to Rush Limbaugh almost religiously. Carol loved traveling. Her favorite place to visit was Hawaii. Carol and Dave vacationed in Hawaii numerous times including celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary in 1973. They were fortunate to have visited every island over the years. Carol always found joy and happiness in her three children, their spouses, and in large family gatherings. She was proud each time she became a grandmother and even more excited when she first became a great-grandmother in 2000. She encouraged her children and grandchildren to play instruments, sing, pursue art, mechanics, law enforcement, or anything their hearts desired. Carol always supported each of their dreams with unwavering faith. She was blessed to attend her oldest great-granddaughter’s high school graduation this May and also was honored as an alumni guest (class of 1946). Her grandchildren and great-grandchildren were truly the highlight of her life. She is survived by her sister Barbara Hall of Hutchinson, KS; brother Jim Vance of Claflin, KS; numerous nieces and nephews; her children- David (Arlene) Curtis of Sedalia, CO, Pamela (Jim) Hughes of Custer, SD, and Joni (Rich) Fell of Sedalia, CO; her grandchildren- Traci (Lucas) Hawkins of Castle Rock, CO, Charlie (Stephanie) Curtis of Sedalia, CO, Douglas (Kirsten) Fell of Chugiak, AK, Chad Curtis of Sedalia, CO, and Tyler Hughes of Box Elder, SD; her great- grandchildren Skylar, Landen, Rori, Cayden, Axel, and Leah; and amazing caregivers Stella, Carmen, Jasmyn, and Michelle.

Finding a place in the national debate Both sides of Masterpiece case reflect on past five years, what’s next BY CLARKE READER CREADER@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

On a table in south Lakewood’s Masterpiece Cakeshop there’s a guest book filled with signatures supporting and praising owner and baker Jack Phillips for standing up for his religious convictions. “The response has been really positive from the community here,” Phillips, who has run Masterpiece since 1993, said on June 8. “I’m really pleased with the ruling that protected my religious freedom. When I opened the bakery, wedding cakes were one of the main things I wanted to do. I look forward to getting back to it.” When the U.S. Supreme Court announced its ruling in Phillips’ favor on June 4 by a 7-2 vote, the first the thing he did is call his wife. The rest of the week has been a swirl of travel and interviews on shows like “Today” and “Fox and Friends.” But on the morning of June 8, anyone stopping by the shop who hasn’t been keeping up on the debate would think it was just another quiet morning at a bakery. Customers came in asking for cupcakes, trying a free sample of a brownie and filling up on free coffee. For the couple who was denied the cake, the ruling was frustrating, but not the end of their efforts to ensure equality for the LGBTQ community. A long road The debate went back to July 2012, when he declined to make a custom wedding cake for same-sex couple Charlie Craig and David Mullins, citing his religious beliefs. He describes himself as a follower of Jesus Christ and believer in a

Over the years, he says he also declined to make custom cakes celebrating divorce, Halloween, and anything that disparages people. “I serve everybody who comes into my shop, and offered these two gentlemen brownies, birthday cakes, anything they wanted,” he said. “For me, it’s about the message the cake promotes. In this case, the message the cake promotes goes against the core teachings of my faith.” After Phillips refused to bake the wedding cake, the couple filed a complaint with the Colorado Civil Rights Commission stating that Phillips violated the state’s public accommodations law that specifically prohibits discrimination based on sexual orientation. The commission ruled against Phillips in May 2014 and the appeals court

The favorable ruling for Phillips came down to his treatment by the Colorado Civil Rights Commission, which Justice Anthony Kennedy said in his majority opinion did not consider Phillips’ case free of religious bias. “All of this is going to affect the rest of his life,” said Denver resident John Chopski, who made a point to come to Masterpiece because he wanted to support Phillips. “I feel for him, because he’s been penalized just for doing what is right.” As Masterpiece’s guest book shows, Phillips has become a symbol for many who fear their religious freedoms are being ignored or actively taken away. That’s not a role he wanted, but he said all the trials and loss of revenue — he had to shrink his staff from 10 people to four — was worth it. “This was the right fight, and it got the right outcome,” he said. But legal experts and LGBTQ advocates both describe the decision as narrow in its focus. By zeroing in on the actions of Colorado’s Civil Rights Commission, the court sidestepped the larger issues of free speech and religious freedom inherent in the debate. “The decision means the fight will continue,” Mullins said. “I’ve always believed in an America where you are not turned away from a business because of who you are. No one should have to face the shame and embarrassment by being told we do not serve your kind here.” The couple denied This issue has hung over the heads of Denver residents Mullins and Craig for their almost six-year marriage,

but they’ve also found themselves at the center of a wave of support from equality advocates and organizations. Following the ruling’s announcement, they joined others at a rally at the state Capitol, including Gov. John Hickenlooper and U.S. Rep. Diana DeGette, who represents Colorado’s 1st Congressional District, which includes Denver and Englewood, among other areas. The pair are scheduled to be the grand marshals at the Coors Light PrideFest Parade on June 17. “While we’re disappointed in the ruling, we feel like the state we call home has had our back every step of the way,” Mullins said. The pair and their supporters also take hope from the fact that the justices didn’t comment on Colorado’s anti-discrimination law, which forbids businesses from discriminating against customers based on sexual orientation. “We hope that people can understand this is not a wide-ranging ruling — this doesn’t mean that our anti-discrimination act is invalidated in any way,” Mullins said. “We will continue fighting until no one has to experience what we did.” Mullins, an office manager, and Craig, an interior designer, had planned to get married in Provincetown, Massachusetts, since gay marriage wasn’t legal in Colorado at the time. The cake they hoped to buy was for a reception held back in their home state. Members of the LGBTQ community and friends who are concerned about what the ruling could lead to are working to help each other and bring people together. “I have friends in the LGBT community, and it is important to support everyone whose rights are threatened,” said Jeanette Vizgoerta, a Denver resident at the rally. “This presidential administration has created so much hate and division that we need to create unity.”

Coloradans across our state — including LGBTQ Coloradans and their families — can take heart from today’s decision that no matter who you are, who you love, or what you believe, you will still be protected in our state from discrimination in the areas of employment, housing and public accommodations.” — Daniel Ramos, executive director of One Colorado

A case like Masterpiece vs. Colorado Civil Rights Commission is just one in a nationwide debate about the intersection of equality and freedom of speech and religion. As such, many organizations and religious leaders were keeping a close eye on the Supreme Court’s decision. Following the 7-2 victory in favor of Masterpiece, Colorado Community Media spoke to organizations on both sides of the debate, as well as local religious leaders, to get their thoughts on the decision and what the future holds: Faith-based organizations “This will have a seismic impact on how the state treats religion. There is no place for the government to evaluate a person’s religious beliefs. Period. “Jack is one of the kindest men I’ve ever met, and I hate to see all the things written about him that make him out to be some kind of hateful person. He just wanted to bring his faith into his work place, and not keep it in the four walls of his home and church. “We need to create a place where people can have productive dialogues about deeply held views.” — Jeff Hunt, Colorado Christian University’s vice president for Public Policy “This is an enormous milestone victory for religious freedom and the First Amendment. Religious freedom is our first freedom, and freedom of conscience is the foundation of all freedoms. We are grateful that the court upheld these. “As a nation, it is important that we continue to understand and cherish our Constitution and its amendments, that we teach the next generation of their importance, and that as a society we learn to respectfully live together with our deepest differences.” — Donald Sweeting, Colorado Christian University president “The most important thing is the ruling said government hostility toward people of faith has no place in our society. People like Jack who believe marriage is a union between a man and a woman should be respected and tolerated because it’s that kind of tolerance and respect that makes our society good and makes it possible for us to live together. “Really big victory for free exercise, and for people of all faiths. For the Supreme Court to reaffirm the government cannot target and punish people for their religious beliefs is a victory that helps not just Jack but all faiths.” — Jeremy Tedesco, senior counsel and vice president for U.S. Advocacy and Administration with the Alliance Defending Freedom

Masterpiece Cakeshop owner and baker Jack Phillips works on a cake just a few days after the Supreme Court ruled in his favor. Following the ruling, he said he’s hoping to get back into the wedding business. CLARKE READER Equality advocates “There is an intentional campaign out there of people opposed to LGBTQ rights and equality to use the claims of free speech and religious freedom to undermine equality. Sure, they’ll say it’s a broad victory and may try to use it to advance other cases, but I don’t think there’s a whole lot in here other than very particular results to help in campaign. “The overall dispute is not about cakes or anything like that — it’s about access to health care, education, and employment. Can people be fired from their job because their boss has a religious objection to who they are? That’s what Mr. Phillips’ advocates are in it for, and that’s what they didn’t get from Supreme Court.” — James Esseks, direct of the ACLU’s LGBT & HIV Project “I hoped the court was ready to settle the question of religious freedom, but this I understand this is a really hard case to settle. They left intact our anti-discrimination protections, which is very important. “It’s not the victory and reassurance to many in our community that we hoped for, but it’s not a total defeat, either. But issues like these are going to keep coming up until the court makes a decision one way or another.” — Rex Fuller, vice president of communications and corporate giving with The GLBT Community Center of Colorado “Let’s be clear, the Supreme Court decision does not give businesses the constitutional right to discriminate, and it does not change existing state anti-discrimination protections. The Court reiterated the importance of the rights and dignity of LGBT individuals to be free from discrimination. And it recognized that religious exemptions to anti-discrimination laws for businesses must be limited and confined.” — Jonathan Greenblatt, Anti-

Defamation League CEO and national director “The decision does not change Colorado’s values and our state antidiscrimination law: all public accommodations, including businesses like Masterpiece Cakeshop, cannot refuse service to anyone based on a person’s race, sex, religion or sexual orientation or gender identity.” — Scott L. Levin, Anti-Defamation League Mountain States regional director “Today’s ruling by the Supreme Court does not change our country’s long-standing principle that businesses open to the public must be open to all. “We strongly believe that the freedom of religion must be defended as one of our most fundamental values as Americans, but that freedom cannot be used to harm others or dis-

Religious leaders “This question of sexual identity/ expression will continue to pit many in our society against each other unless we find a way to dialogue in civil ways. “There are strongly held differences between the extremes in this topic area and we have to find a way to talk about these differences in a civil respectful way. “ We will never be able to find common ground until we can ask forgiveness when we wound each other or find the courage to seek tolerance and acceptance of one another.” — Reg Cox, former pastor and director of the Lakewood Faith Coalition and Lakewood Church Network “There was so much hope for our LGBTQ friends in the past several years, but this decision sends a message that their lives and happiness are somehow not as important. I realize that legally, on the state level, things will basically remain the same, but the implications are still there. “It also sets a dangerous precedent blurring the sacred boundaries of the separation of church and state. I find this trend disturbing, antiConstitutional, and frankly, frightening. We are seeing racist, anti-Jewish, anti-other acts being perpetrated all around us, and I can’t help but wonder when these acts may become officially sanctioned.” — Rabbi Cantor Kim Harris, Congregation B’nai Chaim

Bringing the concert experience home

House shows are simple, low-impact concerts that are hosted in spaces — either indoor or outdoor — where musicians can perform. That can even be a kitchen area. PHOTOS COURTESY OF LYMLIGHT

House shows are growing in popularity for fans, musicians BY CLARKE READER CREADER@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

S

ometimes, the best experience a person can have with music is when it’s performed live. But going to concerts can be a pricey endeavor, plus there’s the cost of getting a drink or two, dealing with the crowd, and fighting for a good spot. Those in search of a way to experience a different kind of live music should consider a growing trend — one closer to home. “Even at small clubs, there’s still a kind of invisible force field between you and the audience, because you’re on stage and they’re not,” said Kyle Hauser, a Berklee School of Music graduate and former touring musician. “But playing a house show allows you to make a genuine connection with people in a way you

House shows are an increasingly popular way for musicians to spare themselves many of the costs that come with playing venues and connect with audiences. can’t otherwise.” House shows are exactly what they sound like — people open up their homes to anywhere from 10 to 30 people for a special performance in their living room, backyard, or any other large space they have.

“What a great way to see live music house shows are,” said Daniel Prewitt, a Morrison resident who has hosted several such events in recent years. “There’s no more intimate way to experience music than with just a few other people in an environment like a home.” As these concerts are so small, there’s not a lot in the way of promotional materials — it mostly comes down to word of mouth and friends of friends. Hauser said there’s a kind of informal list of people who host house shows shared between musicians, but Andrea McKee, founder of Lymlight, aims to make the process easier for both musicians and hosts alike. “Lymlight is an online platform that connects performers with people who want to host shows,” McKee explained. “As a singersongwriter myself, I had a hard time finding gigs where I could play my own material and where I wouldn’t feel like background music. But when I heard about house shows, I loved the energy they provide.” SEE CONCERT, P22

Audubon Society’s Falcon Fest returns for fourth year STAFF REPORT

When asked about their introduction to the world of birds, Audubon Society of Greater Denver members often share stories about grandfathers showing a delicate bird nest out the back window, or a pair of old binoculars being handed off on a family

camping trip. That’s why, in 2015, the society decided to create an event to help ensure the creation of birding memories that last a lifetime. With the success of its ever-popular bird-banding Mother’s Day breakfast, which sells out year after year, a Father’s Day event seemed like the perfect addition.

“Eagles, as well as other raptors, have often been used as symbols of power and agility not only in our country, but throughout the world,” Kate Hogan, community outreach coordinator of the Audubon Society of Greater Denver, said in a news releasee. “We wanted to host a unique event that could celebrate fathers

and simultaneously create unforgettable family memories in a beautiful outdoor setting.” The fourth annual Father’s Day Falcon Fest is June 16, from 5:30-7 p.m., in the amphitheater behind the Audubon Nature Center buildings at SEE FEST, P28

SHEDDING LIGHT ON LYMLIGHT

FROM PAGE 20

By using Lymlight — which is free for everyone — musicians can connect with people interested in hosting a show at their place, and vice versa. Most of the musicians who are interested in playing house shows are moving into markets or areas they’ve never been before, McKee said. “By making the house show process easier and more accessible we’re looking to change the landscape of what the live experience can be,” she added. “They’re a great option for indie artists.” The site also has a range of resources available for those new to hosting. Arvada resident Melissa Rozeski had never attended a house show before she met McKee but fell in love with them after a performance she hosted for her birthday. “We had people bring food and drinks. It was almost like a potluck,” she said. “The best part was the musician would chat with the guests before and after. It gave all of us a chance to support musicians we enjoy.” Ensuring house shows arranged through Lymlight are ethical was of vital importance to McKee — which means making it possible for musicians to make a living. Guests to events made on the platform must buy a ticket to the show through the platform for tax purposes. This ensures both musician and host are aware of how many seats are getting filled based on the

Lymlight, an online platform connecting musicians with people who want to host house concerts, has three main principles: 1) Ethical Shows — performer earns a living wage. 2) Original Work — there is plenty of undiscovered and unheard amazing work and therefore it should be heard. 3) Engaged Audience — the performer is not background entertainment. To be a host, all one needs are: • Seats for at least 10 people • Friends who will pay to see live music • A serious love of live music For more information and to sign up, visit www.lymlight.com.

number of tickets sold for each event. When tickets to a show are sold, upon completion of the show, the ticket sales will automatically be deposited into the musician’s bank account. “I think house shows are the logical next step in the music economic system,” Hauser said. “You just know you’re going to have a good experience at these shows.”

Sterling Ranch landscape design protects water, saves residents money When it comes to the soil and everything that grows and blooms in the Sterling Ranch master-planned community, great thought and care went into protecting water resources and saving its future residents money. In 2011, five years before construction started, Sterling Ranch visionaries began studying the soil, native plants and water conversation best practices across the landscape industry. These studies came through a partnership with the native land experts at the Denver Botanic Gardens. Larry Vickerman, director of Chatfield Farms for Denver Botanic Gardens, said the partnership has far exceeded his expectations, as the dedication from Sterling Ranch developers to not only protect, but add value to the land is truly a “template” for other Colorado housing developers to follow. “When it comes to saying they want to protect water, Sterling Ranch not only talks the talk, but they walk the walk,” he said. “That’s what has impressed me the most as we’ve continued working with them.” Harold Smethills, founder of the growing community in Douglas County south of Littleton, said Sterling Ranch made a serious commitment to water sustainability from the very beginning. “We are doing good, we are saving water and we are saving residents on water costs,” he said. “More and more communities are integrating water sustainability into land-use plans, and we hope to continue to inspire others.” It all began with studying the soil of the land, Smethills explained. Choosing an expert from Chatfield Farms was the logical choice because they are located near the development and have the most knowledge of what is sustainable in the particular

Five years before construction started at Sterling Ranch, developers teamed up with the Denver Botanic Gardens to create a test garden for the studying of plant life on the building site. This effort ultimately rendered a list of 150 different plant varieties that are approved for use in the community as a result of their fit with the site’s climate and soil conditions.

The process started with the creation of a five-year test garden off of Titan Road. “We wanted plants that were attractive and appealing, but wouldn’t require much water, and wouldn’t die in a drought,” Smethills said. “Working with the Botanic Gardens allowed us to understand the soil and created a set of landscape standards, which we assist

our residents in implementing with the help of instructional classes and inspecitions aimed at ensuring landscape success for the benefit of the whole community.” Taking into consideration quality of life issues, Smethills said they also focused on plants and concepts that would be bird friendly. Eventually, the study rendered a list of more than 150 plant variations that are not only planted in the common areas and roundabouts surrounding the development, but also are set as established guidelines for Sterling Ranch residents to use in designing their own yard landscapes. “To have these principles Sterling Ranch developed in a test garden, and have them carried into individual lots is incredible,” Vickerman said. “This approach is truly a selling point for home buyers. Today’s homeowners want to protect water supplies, they want native plants, and they are more environmentally aware.”

www.sterlingranchcolorado.com

As Sterling Ranch continues to grow over the next 20 years, it is estimated that the development’s homes will use a third less water than Douglas County historically has required used. Spring’s Showers Make Way for Summer’s Flowers The Sterling Ranch community is aiming even higher, as it is also currently undergoing a rainwater harvesting pilot project. This project, the first of its kind in Colorado at a community scale, is slated to even further supply the water needed to grow the site’s landscape vision, ultimately providing 40 percent of the public landscape’s irrigation supply. The Sterling Ranch Visitor Center is open seven days a week, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. There you can learn more about the community’s amenities and find a map to help you and your family visit the 21 model homes currently on the site.

On May 30 and June 1, readers may have observed assorted folks — wearing a straw or other hat — paintbrush in hand and a palette of bright paints at the ready, as they worked to capture a scene on Littleton’s Main street, at Aspen Grove, in surrounding streets, yards, parks and gardens … They were among the group of 50 who registered with the Littleton Fine Arts Guild for the fourth annual Plein Air Festival. “Plein air painting is a tradition and method of creating art, celebrated by artists over the centuries,” according to Patty Dwyer, festival chair. “Many think of Monet and his work inspired at Giverny — his famous gardens. Plein air festivals are held throughout the U.S. and draw crowds and great interest.” She promised that the resulting pieces “will celebrate all that is Littleton—historic buildings, gardens, open space, vistas and urban life.” Indeed they do! The flurry of painting resulted in

“Sitting Pretty” by Deborah McAllister was awarded Best of Show by juror Lorenzo Chavez. An exhibit of paintings produced during the festival will be at the Depot Art Gallery, Littleton.

July 1. And, they are for sale at modest prices — perhaps a perfect wedding gift for a couple establishing a new home — or a graduate, furnishing a first apartment … The visitor is greeted by bright splashes of sunlit color, bouncing off of flowers, leaves, architecture, water and more. (This year’s weather was excellent, versus a previous time, when it rained a lot and paintings included puddles.) The quickly framed and hung (on the afternoon on June 1) exhibit, which still bore a faint aroma of not-quite-dry oil paint four days later, opened with a large crowd on First Friday, June 1, as part of monthly Littleton Art Walks — and related History Walks, offered by Historic Littleton Inc. members. (HLI was among a group of local sponsors who supported the festival — a thanks to all who did so.) The juror for the show was nationally recognized Parker-based painter/teacher Lorenzo Chavez, who picked “Sitting Pretty” by Deborah McAllister as Best of Show. Her image is of an old red truck — with a lighter-colored, obviously replaced, door — parked in front of a cheerful yellow stucco house (circa 1920s?). It is expertly rendered, with clear colors, nice composition and popular subject — sure to be a visitors’ favorite. Participants’ activities included a “Quick-Paint” session at Aspen Grove, with celebration/exhibit at Rice on May 30. Lisa Hut’s “Hot Spot,” of pink flowers in the center’s always-pleasing landscape, won a First Place ribbon. This is the first time the shopping center has been included in the paint-out. Appropriate — it’s

IF YOU GO The Plein Air Festival paintings will be exhibited at the Depot Art Gallery, 2069 W. Powers Ave., Littleton, until July 1.

On the morning of June 1, another “Quick-Paint” event happened on Littleton’s historic Main street, with Cliff Austin’s “One-Way” sign leading into a familiar street scene that won a First Place ribbon. Austin has a Littleton studio at Woodlawn, where he paints and teaches. Techniques and media vary — it’s worth taking extra time to examine some works closely — with swooshes of wet watercolor, precise and softly blended pastel lines and great variety in line and style from those who paint in oils and acrylics. On the right as one enters, are two renderings of a pink rose at Aspen Grove — one soft pastel, “Hot Spot” by Jan Hut, holds a blue ribbon. The other, a more graphic rendering is also well-presented and appealing. Visitors will want to allow time for a close look at these modestly sized paintings with some very fine detailing at times. It’s a different scale than one may be accustomed to seeing in museums and galleries …

growing population and bustling economy,” Buck said in a statement. “I’ve worked closely, alongside my colleagues in the delegation, to emphasize to the Department of Transportation the importance of the I-25 Gap project for the people who rely on this section of the interstate as a key thoroughfare. These grant dollars will make Colorado better connected, benefiting our economy and our communities.” All three men penned letters encouraging the grant be awarded to the Gap project. Mike Lewis, the executive director of CDOT, said in a news release the senators and the whole congressional delegation “stepped up to ensure

that Colorado received awards for two critical transportation projects.” The projects will help save lives and improve travel, he said. “The administration clearly sees the commitment of Coloradans to their transportation system,” he said, “and the innovative methods by which we are delivering critical projects.” Douglas County Commissioner Roger Partridge reacted to the news by commending El Paso County for “being the lead” on applying for the grant and said having so many state and local partners was key in the application’s success, noting less than 20 percent of the Gap project’s funding will be INFRA dollars. “We always thought we had a competitive project,” he said. “This just proves that it was an excellent project.”

LUNCH FROM PAGE 11

On average, 12 percent of students in Highlands Ranch schools qualify for free and reduced lunches, Peifer said. But in some areas, like neighborhoods near County Line Road, that number jumps to 20 percent to 25 percent, she said. “We wanted to test out that region and see if the need is there,” Peifer said. Other sites are at parks, apartment complexes and schools in Castle Rock and unincorporated Douglas County. The goal is to reduce the stigma of needing free lunch by hosting the sites at popular parks where children of all statuses can benefit. “Those that really need it can come get food without worrying about being identified or standing out in a crowd,” said Peifer. “A lot of parents find it to be a very convenient — it’s a handy program to offer.”

Some pointers on how to get kids into fly fishing rout fishing is on the rise (pardon the pun) becoming the most intriguing and interesting fishing style being pursued today. This growing interest is surfacing among both genders and in all age’s ranks. Trout Unlimited chapters across the country are fostering this interest in a variety of ways. If you fish let me encourage you to become a TU member. Contact our nearby West Denver Trout Unlimited office at wdtu.email@gmail.com. TU member Kirk Deeter posted a recent TU piece to help seasoned fly anglers mentor young anglers. Deeter’s “Teaching Kids to Fly Fish: The Five Golden Rules” are summarized here to help us guide and encourage kids. 1. Success Fuels Interest. Fish where you know there are fish and fish that pursue flies and fish that can be caught with some regularity. 2. There is no such thing as a “bad”

cast. There are casts that will catch a fish and a lot that don’t. Patience and practice time on the water will help young anglers get OUTDOOR a sense of how the catching part works. LIVING 3. Let Them Choose the gear. Offer some practical ideas. Kids might be attracted to a specific rod length, maybe reel size or color, or equipment that looked like what grandpa had years ago. Ownership Ron Hellbusch breeds confidence. 4. It’s never too early for a conservation ethic. Make it a priority to handle the fish gently, release them back to the water carefully and quickly, look for and dispose of trash, explain fishing regulations and encourage the young person to

understand and follow them. 5. Let Them Teach you. After some orientation time on the stream sharing some basic elements of fish and water, let the young person select a pool or a run to fish. In a short time, allow them to select a fly pattern they think might attract the trout. Encourage them to execute a fly cast they think will present best. You will build their confidence and create an excitement and sense of challenge in their learning stages of fly fishing. The season is here; create the opportunity for some kids to venture into the world of fly fishing. We will gain a fishery conservationist and introduce a young person to the beauty and mystery of the outdoors. An avid outdoorsman, Ron Hellbusch can be reached at Ron-Hellbusch@ comcast.net.

Trace Adkins rocks Parker Days BY NICK PUCKETT NPUCKETT@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Day one of the annual Parker Days Festival capped off with country music star Trace Adkins rocking the main stage June 7 in downtown Parker.

The crowd roared at his deep baritone voice and country twang. He sang songs from throughout his 22year career, from crowdfavorite party anthems like “Honky Tonk Badonka- Trace Adkins sings on the main stage during the first day of the 2018 Parker Days Festival. The Texas-born country music star dedicated his donk” to sweet, nostalgic concert to the Wounded Warrior Project, a charity that helps wounded veterans and active duty service members reclaim their lives. hits like “You’re Gonna PHOTOS BY NICK PUCKETT Miss This.” The Kory Brunson Band opened for Adkins on the main stage.

choosing Phil Weiser.

GOVERNOR

FROM PAGE 17

Phil Weiser for attorney general I have been carefully listening to Mr. Weiser for a while now at forums and other gatherings. He and his Democratic opponent vary little on the issues that confront Coloradans — so little, in fact, that it is quite a challenge to support one over the other. Both have diverse and qualifying backgrounds. However, there is a difference that I have discerned: Mr. Weiser is wholly consistent with his declaration to run a clean campaign. This and perhaps this alone distinguishes him from his opponent. He is courteous and respectful with a firm hand on the issues. He shows himself to be extremely knowledgeable while leaving room for dissenting opinions to be expressed. This characteristic will lend itself to working with and garnering cooperation of all manner of legislators, constituents, those under his leadership, the executive branch, and others in the profession and interested parties in all things legal. I believe him when he states his duty is to uphold the law and advocate for all within the scope of the office of attorney general in our great state of Colorado. Katharine Thomas Highlands Ranch

FROM PAGE 14

Weiser deserves your vote As a life-long Coloradan, I believe that we need an attorney general who brings legal expertise, proven leadership and the courage to stand up for our environment, businesses and values. Among worthy candidates, all having demonstrated a commitment to public service, Phil Weiser offers the best experience and policies to serve as Colorado attorney general. Phil has unmatched expertise, having clerked for Supreme Court justices, taught law, established the Colorado legal center that helped define net neutrality, and advised President Barack Obama. Phil has executed in challenging positions of responsibility, having managed the Justice Department’s Antitrust Division and led the University of Colorado Law School as dean. Phil has distinguished himself as a candidate committed to defending Colorado laws as written, building partnerships to strengthen our communities, and advocating for all Coloradoans. Choosing to vote is always wise. For Colorado Attorney General, I’m

thy toward so-called “sanctuary cities.” Unaffiliated voters State voters in 2016 approved changes that allow Colorado’s unaffiliated voters to cast ballots in either the Democratic or Republican primary without affiliating. The state’s 1.2 million active unaffiliated voters represent Colorado’s biggest voting bloc, and could previously vote in primaries only by registering with a party. The state’s two major parties have about 1 million active voters each. This year, most unaffiliated voters will receive two primary ballots — one for Democrats, one for Republicans. They can choose one; returning both will cancel their vote. The impact is uncertain, and Colorado’s primaries in 2014, the last non-presidential election year, didn’t feature gubernatorial contests. Primary turnout that year was nearly 22 percent of active voters.

Music will range from pops to jazz to swing and classical and patriotic tunes — probably all by the same group in some cases! Also on hand will be a number of vendors with food, services and products at the Festival Marketplace. Inviting Civic Green Park has a nice stage in an amphitheater. Visitors need to bring blankets or folding chairs if they want to sit and enjoy a concert or more. Picnics are encour-

Three prep athletes honored for track prowess Evans, Sloan head for college teams; Sprout has year remaining at Valor BY JIM BENTON JBENTON@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Maya Evans and Emily Sloan will head off to college carrying a combined 14 Colorado High School Activities Association state track titles with them. And, sophomore Cole Sprout of Valor Christian will be seeking more laurels in a third classification next season. Evans and Sloan have been selected as the 2018 Colorado Community Media South Metro co-winners of the Girls Track Athlete of Year award. Sprout is the boys’ winner. Evans, a Class 3A standout at Lutheran High School in Parker who will be attending and competing at Texas A&M, won three more individual state championships at the May 17-19 state track championships at Jeffco Stadium. She won the 100-meter dash in Class 3A in 12:02, the 200 meters in 24.88 and the long jump with a leap of 18:03.50. That gave her eight individual state titles to go along with another as a member of a relay team. “Maya is a special talent and one of the greatest athletes to ever participate in Colorado,” said Lutheran coach Darwin Horan. Sloan, who graduated from Rock Canyon in May, will continue her schooling and athletic career at Oregon after winning the 100- and 300-meter hurdles at the state meet to give her six state titles. She won her fourth straight 100-meter hurdles state title in 13:59 at last month’s state meet and her second 300

In the 300 hurdles state meet preliminaries, Sloan set an all-time Colorado record with a 40.60 clocking. “This will get my ready for Oregon,” Sloan said after winning on a cold,

Maya Evans, of Lutheran, is the co-Colorado Community Media South Metro Girls Track Athlete of the Year. rainy final day of the state meet. “I had a goal of winning the 100 meters from my freshman year and I did that. And winning the 300 was good.” Sprout, who transferred from Faith Christian to Valor, won the Class 4A races in the 1,600 and 3,200 meters at this season’s state meet after taking the 4A cross country title last fall for Valor. He was the runner-up in both track events for 3A Faith Christian in 2017

and next season he will be competing in 5A when the Eagles move up a classification. Sprout set a Colorado all-time classification record of 9:01.53 in the 3,200 on May 4 at the Jeffco championships. “I improved a lot during the track season,” said Sprout. “I’m looking forward to next year to see what I can do. Next year I want to break the mile record (1,600) and take down my twomile record (3,200).”

CHSAA leader brings her role into public view honda Blanford-Green, the former Aurora Central and University of Nebraska track standout, took over as the Colorado High School Athletic Association’s ninth commissioner last July. In her first year, Blanford-Green reached one of her goals of having the CHSAA commissioner become more visible so athletes, coaches, fans, parents and school administrators can recognize her. And, as she said, she has put a face to a name. Blanford-Green was seen at meetings and gatherings of cooperate sponsors, legislators and educational institutions. At the recent CHSAA baseball tournament, BlanfordGreen stopped to talk and visit with

fans in the crowd. She worked for the CHSAA for 16 years, including OVERTIME time as an associate commissioner. She was the executive director of the Nebraska Schools Activities Association for three years and spent two years as an assistant executive director of Jim Benton the Louisiana High School Association before taking over at the CHSAA. When she took over last July she emphasized that she was not a change agent, but a few of the proposals that the CHSAA Executive Council approved last April drew a smile on

Blanford-Green’s face. A change that Blanford-Green mentioned that was needed was one that allows Colorado athletes to represent their schools in national events. Colorado teams and individuals are now allowed to represent their schools out of season in national competitions if they get the permission of the school principal and CHSAA office. Before, these teams and individuals took part nationally as members of a club. Blanford-Green made it to all but one of the state championships and the one she missed was because of a conflict with another CHSAA state event. So this is a good spot to review the state titles won by local teams during the 2017-18 season.

Mountain Vista won the 5A boys baseball title to go along with boys and girls cross country crowns captured last fall. Valor Christian won its third consecutive 4A state baseball title and Eagles girls won the 4A state track championship. After taking home piggyback runner-up 5A football trophies, Pomona won the top prize last fall and the Panthers girls won the gymnastics title. Legend’s softball team won the school’s first sanctioned state title and Castle View took advantage of good fortune in the final pool play match and won two five-set matches to secure the 5A girls volleyball championship.

Creek’s Payton Canon chosen as Girls Golfer of Year Player brought character to team, helped set tone for championship BY JIM BENTON JBENTON@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Steady, consistent, unflappable were terms that could define the play of Cherry Creek’s Payton Canon this season on the golf course. Coach Randy Smith came up with another description for his senior golfer. “She was a rock,” said Smith. “She was the reason we were in the position we were in. Talk about a Most Valuable Player.” Canon, who won three Centennial League meets and fashioned a round of 68 at Aurora Hills, tied for third place in the individual standings at the Class 5A state meet held May 21-22 at the Boulder Country Club. She was the lone senior on the team and leader for the Bruins who captured the team championship. SEE GOLFER, P37

Castle View took the 4A/5A co-ed crown while Ponderosa was the Jazz winner.

On the track At the Great Southwest track meet in Albuquerque which was held May 31-June 2, two local seniors were dominating. Emily Sloan, a Rock Canyon graduate, won the 100- and 300-meter hurdles in times of 13.54 and 41.10 respectively. Lutheran’s Maya Evans captured the long jump with a 20-10.75 leap. Two Mountain Vista distance runners didn’t win but had impressive times at the Festival of Miles in St. Louis on June 2. Carter Dillon was fourth in the mile run with a time of 4:10.34, which converts to a 4.08 in the 1,600 meters. Caden Foster was sixth in the race with a 4:11.24 with a conversion of 4:09 to 1,600.

Softball Player of the Year Valor Christian senior Ali Kilponen has been named Colorado’s Gatorade Softball Player of the Year. The four-year Eagles standout who has signed to pitch for Louisiana State went 22-1 in her senior year with an 0.42 earned run average and 273 strikeouts in 134 innings pitched with just 12 walks.

The all-time Colorado 1,600 meter record is 4:10.98. Take me out to the ball game There were several players with ties to local schools that were selected during the three days of the Major League baseball draft. Former D’Evelyn athlete Grant Witherspoon, a centerfielder for Tulane, was tabbed in the fourth round by Tampa Bay and former Holy Family outfielder Devlin Granberg of Dallas Baptist College was picked by the Boston Red Sox in the sixth round. Cherry Creek grad Lane Milligan, an outfielder for Oklahoma City University, was a 17th-round choice of the Boston Red Sox and Standley Lake third baseman Garrett Martin was picked by the Baltimore Orioles in the 22nd round. Martin graduated in May and is committed to play at McClennan Junior College. Former Legend and Southern Illinois pitcher Michael Baird was a 23rdround pick of the St. Louis Cardinals, and the Colorado Rockies selected

I had my career low round.” Canon carded rounds of 75 and 77 for a 152 36-hole total at the state tournament. Her steady second round helped the Bruins rally past first-day leader Regis Jesuit and second-place Grandview to win the state title by two shots over the Wolves.

Petrock, Petrock & Fendel, 700 17th Street, #1800, Denver, CO 80202), APPLICATION FOR AMENDMENT OF AUGMENTATION PLAN, DOUGLAS COUNTY. Decree information for which amendment is sought: Case No. 09CW43, decreed on August 27, 2009. The property which is the subject of the decree is 17.8 acres generally located in the SW1/4NE1/4 of Section 36, T6S, R66W of the 6th P.M., Douglas County, as described and shown on Attachment A (Subject Property). Applicant is the owner of the Subject Property and the groundwater which is the subject of this application. Proposed amendment: In the original decree, an augmentation plan was approved for use of 1.2 acre-feet per year of not nontributary Upper Dawson aquifer groundwater for commercial and irrigation use. By this application, Applicant requests that the use of the 1.2 acre-feet per year be changed to in-house use in one residence (0.35 acre-feet), irrigation of 14,000 square-feet of lawn, garden and trees (0.8 acrefeet), and stockwatering of up to 4 large domestic animals (0.05 acre-feet). Applicant reserves the right to revise the uses and annual amount to be withdrawn pursuant to this amendment without having to amend the application or republish the same. Return flow from in-house is approximately 90% of that use. During pumping Applicant will replace actual depletions to the affected stream system pursuant to Section 3790-137(9)(c.5), C.R.S. Pursuant to Case No. 09CW43, the total actual depletion at 100 years of pumping is 0.367% of the annual amount withdrawn or 0.004 acre-feet. Depletions occur to the Cherry Creek stream system and return flow from in house use will accrue to that stream system in a sufficient amount to replace actual depletions while the groundwater is being pumped. No other provisions of the original decree will be changed, including reservation of an equal amount of nontributary groundwater underlying the Subject Property for replacement of post pumping depletions. Further, Applicant prays that this Court grant the application and for such other relief as seems proper in the premises. (5 pages).

VER, ARAPAHOE AND LARAMIE-FOX HILLS AND THE NOT NONTRIBUTARY DAWSON AQUIFERS, DOUGLAS COUNTY. 6.4 acres located in the SW1/4 of Section 19, T10S, R66W of the 6th P.M., Douglas County, as described and shown on Attachment A hereto ("Subject Property"). Source of Water Rights: The Dawson aquifer is not nontributary as described in Sections 37-90-103(10.7), C.R.S., and the Denver, Arapahoe and Laramie-Fox Hills aquifers are nontributary as described in Section 37-90-103(10.5), C.R.S. Estimated Amounts: Dawson: 4.3 acre-feet, Denver: 6 acre-feet, Arapahoe: 3.6 acre-feet, Laramie-Fox Hills: 2 acre-feet. Proposed Use: Domestic, commercial, industrial, irrigation, livestock watering, fire protection, and augmentation purposes, including storage, both on and off the Subject Property. Groundwater to be augmented: 1 acre-foot per year of Dawson aquifer groundwater as requested herein. Water rights for augmentation: Return flows from the use of not nontributary and nontributary groundwater and direct discharge of nontributary ground water. Statement of plan for augmentation: The Dawson aquifer water will be used on the Subject Property for in-house use in one residence (0.35 acre-feet), irrigation of 10,000 square-feet of lawn, garden, and trees (0.6 acre-feet), and stockwatering of up to 4 large domestic animals (0.05 acre-feet). Applicant reserves the right to amend the amounts and values without amending the application or republishing the same. Sewage treatment for inhouse use will be provided by non-evaporative septic systems and return flow from inhouse and irrigation use will be approximately 90% and 15% of that use, respectively. During pumping Applicant will replace actual depletions to the affected stream system pursuant to Section 37-90-137(9)(c.5), C.R.S. Depletions occur to Carpenter Creek, a tributary of East Plum Creek. Return flows accrue to the South Platte River via East Plum Creek and those return flows are sufficient to replace actual depletions while the subject groundwater is being pumped. Applicant will reserve an equal amount of nontributary groundwater underlying the Subject Property to meet post pumping augmentation requirements. Further, Applicant prays that this Court grant the application and for such other relief as seems proper in the premises. (7 pages).

Petrock, Petrock & Fendel, 700 17th Street, #1800, Denver, CO 80202), APPLICATION FOR PLAN FOR AUGMENTATION, DOUGLAS COUNTY. Description of plan for augmentation: Groundwater to be augmented: 15 acre-feet per year of not nontributary Upper Dawson aquifer groundwater as decreed to Applicants in Case No. 06CW232, District Court, Water Division 1, underlying 160 acres being the SE1/4 of Section 7, T9S, R66W of the 6th P.M., Douglas County, as shown on Attachment A hereto (Subject Property). Water rights to be used for augmentation: Return flows from the use of not nontributary Upper Dawson aquifer water and return flows and direct discharge of nontributary groundwater underlying the Subject Property as also decreed in Case No. 06CW232. Statement of plan for augmentation: The Upper Dawson aquifer groundwater will be used for in-house use in up to two residences, irrigation of lawn, garden, trees, hay and pasture, fire protection, stockwatering, storage, and replacement purposes, on the Subject Property. Applicants reserve the right to revise the amount and uses without having to amend or republish this application. Sewage treatment for in house use will be provided by non-evaporative septic systems. Return flows associated with in-house use and irrigation use will be approximately 90% and 15%, respectively, of the amounts used for those purposes. During pumping Applicants will replace actual depletions to the affected stream system pursuant to Section 37-90-137(9)(c.5), C.R.S.

Return flows from in-house and irrigation use will accrue to the South Platte River system via Cherry Creek and those return flows are sufficient to replace actual depletions while the subject groundwater is being pumped. If return flows are not sufficient to replace actual depletions in any year of pumping, the required amount of replacement will be diverted into the creek from the Upper Dawson aquifer well. Applicants will reserve an equal amount of nontributary groundwater as decreed in Case No. 06CW232 to meet post-pumping augmentation requirements. Further, Applicants pray that this Court grant the application and for such other relief as seems proper in the premises. (4 pages).
