Two Douglas County schools recognized in app contest $15,000 prizes will go to winners chosen by fans, experts STAFF REPORT

Two Douglas County schools were recognized out of more than 1,800 teams across the country as finalists in the Verizon Innovative Learning app challenge, a nationwide contest challenging students to design a mobile app concept that will improve societal issues, according to a media release from Verizon. Cimarron Middle School in Parker and STEM School and Academy in Highlands Ranch were awarded best in state for the middle and high school categories. Teams received $5,000 from the Verizon Foundation along with tablets for each team member. A group of seventh-grade students from Cimarron Middle School developed an app concept called “Care Packager” that allows users to ship requested items directly to a recipient. The app is directed at men and women

serving in the armed forces who need items from home. A group of seven freshmen from STEM School and Academy crafted an app concept called “We the People” following last year’s election to help citizens access unbiased news on politics. “Time constraints for citizens is what helped us come up with the idea to create a nonpartisan app that will efficiently inform citizens of the issues/candidates on the ballot,” team member Chase Babair wrote in a news release. “When there is not an election, our app will provide unbiased news.” The two teams are up for one of eight best in nation awards, determined by a panel of experts, and one fan favorite award, determined by public voting. The eight teams named best in nation and the one team named fan favorite will win $15,000 for their schools and the chance to build their app concept into reality alongside experts from MIT. Winners will also receive an expenses-paid trip to the Technology Student Association (TSA) Conference in Orlando, Florida this June.

Castle Rock group dreams of an elected mayor BY JESSICA GIBBS JGIBBS@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

In 2003, George Teal was a somewhat new Castle Rock resident. It was as a constituent that Teal, now a councilmember, said he was concerned upon hearing a ban had been implemented that year on open carry of firearms. Teal’s first thought was to protest the ban through the next election. He’d simply vote for a new mayor, he said. But then he learned Castle Rock’s town charter does not call for a mayor to be elected by residents. The mayor was — and still is — elected by a vote of the seven-member town council, a vote in which public comment is not allowed. The open carry ban inspired Teal to run for town council and support former Mayor Paul Donahue’s campaign to repeal it. The campaign was successful, so Teal’s attention returned once more to the town’s mayoral-election process. “Right now, we have an enclosed group that makes decisions for the entire town,” he said. “The people in Castle Rock have the right to be able to choose their leader.” As a home rule municipality, a town charter lays out Castle Rock’s councilmanager form of government. The system in which Castle Rock employs a town manager for the day-to-day administration of the town could remain the same under an at-large mayor. So could the town’s weak-mayor system, meaning the mayor does not have more power or authority than other councilmembers. The charter was established in 1987 and outlines election procedures for the mayor and mayor pro tem. Amending those stipulations would require an election. Amendments can be proposed though a petition by registered electors. Such a petition would need signatures from 5 percent to 10 percent of the elector base to advance a question to the voters. The council can also propose charter amendments by passing an ordinance calling for an election. Teal has vowed in council meetings and to his constituents that he will keep fighting to amend the charter and allow citizens to elect their mayor. He’s not alone. A group effort Mary Wilson of Castle Rock is one of five on a citizen committee preparing to file a petition. Although they haven’t divulged any specifics, it will call for an at-large mayor, plus possibly, a mix of districted and at-large councilmembers. Wilson said the people deserve a say in who represents them as mayor. For her, the town’s growth plays a factor. The town estimates Castle Rock’s population was under 10,000 people when the charter was ratified. Today, it is approaching 63,000. “We’ve outgrown it,” she said of the current process. “Just like we’ve outgrown our town hall, we’ve outgrown a system of government” She wanted to know how many oth-

ers felt the same way. To gauge public opinion, she opened a www.change.org petition called, “Should Castle Rock, Colorado have an at large mayor?” The online petition reached nearly 200 signatures in its first two months. Comments on the petition were varied. Many said they want a say in who becomes mayor. Others said they weren’t satisfied with how council represents constituents. Some said the town’s growth and size now warrants a new system. “The biggest thing is it would make the mayor more accountable to the city,” said Wayne Harlos, who’s assisting Wilson with the petition. Sam Mamet, executive director of the Colorado Municipal League, said he hasn’t seen a municipality switch to an at-large system recently, but it was a trend eight to 10 years ago. “It pops up every once in a while,” he said. A mayor serves as the face of a community and as its spokesperson on many issues, Mamet said. Supporters of an at-large system believe that means constituents have the right to elect their mayor. “The argument on the other side is, `We don’t want to have one individual have too much power or authority,’ ” he said. Of Colorado’s home rule municipalities, 80 select their mayor at-large and 21 select their mayor by a vote of the council. “We use to have many more appointed by the council,” Mamet said. Different views Former town officials have weighed in on different sides of the issue. In 2008, then-Mayor Randy Reed was two years into his four-year tenure as mayor, and he actively participated in groups comprising mayors from throughout the state. Reed said he began to notice a difference between mayors elected at-large and those appointed by their town councils. “I think townwide-elected mayors lent a lot more credibility to themselves and to their community,” he said. “Because you have a much larger number of people electing that person than a majority of your council.” Reed began to believe an at-large mayor would benefit Castle Rock — a belief he holds to this day. Meanwhile, former Mayor Paul Donahue has spoken favorably of a councilappointed mayor. “I like the checks and balances that are in place on the mayor now,” he said. An at-large mayor could allow a “fabulous campaigner” into office, but also someone who “doesn’t have the trust and respect of the majority of council,” he said. Regardless, Wilson said the group is serious about their petition. They’re prepared to file within the month, she said, and are now focused on educating people about the issue. “I think everyone can agree,” she said, “that they want their vote to count.”

School district talks budget concerns, solutions at town hall Change means more money for elementary schools, less for secondary schools BY MIKE DIFERDINANDO MDIFERDINANDO@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Facing rising costs and stagnant funding, the Douglas County School District community is searching for solutions. To some, this means a mill levy or bond measure will need to be placed on the ballot — something that has not been popular in the county in the past. More than 100 community members packed the auditorium at Southridge Recreation Center in Highlands Ranch Feb. 12 to discuss concerns about budget changes and funding shortages. “We’re here to solve a problem and find a solution,” said parent Meg Masten, one of the event’s organizers. The biggest point of contention was a change made by the school district that will see more money available for elementary schools, but less for middle and high schools. In the past, all schools paid the same average amount for a teacher, calculated using his or her salary, plus benefits and retirement contributions. Now, rather than using the districtwide average, that amount will be differentiated among the elementary, middle schools and high schools. Because elementary teachers cost the district less, those schools would be able to hire more people with the same amount of money, district officials said. Middle school and high school teachers, however, would be more expensive to hire. The town hall event was attended by several school district officials — interim Superintendent Erin Kane, Chief Financial Officer Bonnie Betz and assistant superintendents Steve Cook and Ted Knight. Two board of education members, Anne-Marie Lemieux and David Ray, attended. All seven school board members were invited. The guests each had a chance to speak and then answer questions from the crowd. The majority of questions centered

A BUDGET CHANGE A change was made to school-based budgeting that will impact the cost of teachers on each school. Instead of all schools paying the same average amount for a teacher during the budgeting process, now elementary, middle and high schools will be differentiated. All averages include salary, benefits and PERA. Projected 2017-18 average teacher cost:

Overall: $74,574

Middle school: $76,092

Elementary: $71,801

High school: $76,971

on why more money needed to be directed to elementary schools, the lack of community input in the decision and ideas for solving the problem. The district said it does not have plans for cuts to staff or programing at the secondary level at this time. “I have seen these cuts come down the line in the past and they have been tough,” said Laura Mutton, a parent who also helped organize the town hall event. Mutton has had children in the district since 2003 and said she has seen firsthand the impact of budgets, most notably during the recession in 2008 and 2009 when the district eliminated jobs in school services, transportation and high school education in an effort to save money. Now, the district faces financial challenges, including rising costs to areas such as employee retirement (PERA), medical coverage, nursing and needed improvements for special needs and mental health care. Other increased costs include building repairs, salary increases and bonuses for teachers and staff, and technology and device refresh for schools. State funding through per-pupil revenue is expected to stay flat or increase only slightly. The per-pupil funding for the 2016-17 school year is $7,163. “Many of our schools have much lower enrollment then they used to have,” Kane said, adding that lower enrollment means less money at each building to combat rising costs. For 2016-17, DCSD’s enrollment is 67,470, up from 66,896 in 2015-16, according to the Colorado Department of Education. However, some elementary schools are experiencing declining enrollments, district officials say. The district has projected the following schools in the Parker, Highlands

Ranch and Castle Rock will be under utilized in the 2017-18 school year: Pine Lane Elementary, Mountain View Primary Arrowwood Elementary, Larkspur Elementary, Mesa Middle School Ponderosa High School. Other schools have been projected to be under unitized by the 2021-2022 school year: Northeast Intermediate, Trailblazer Elementary, Sierra MiddleSchool and Castle Rock Middle School Administrative cuts planned The deficit has been felt especially hard at the elementary level, where schools have struggled to afford specialists like art and music teachers on a full-time basis, Kane said. Before any money is directed away from schools, Kane said the district will make cuts to central administration. The proposed 2017-18 budget will be presented at the Feb. 21 school board meeting along with a review of proposed cuts. Cindy Barnard, of the group Taxpayers for Public Education, has been involved in the district as a volunteer for 18 years. “The funds that I continue to see at the administrative level — funds that are not reaching students in our schools — is shocking,” she said. While she did not attend the meeting, school board President Meghann Silverthorn spoke to Colorado Community Media before the event and voiced her confidence in the district’s ability to limit the impact on students. “The superintendent and her staff are working hard to make next year’s budget as minimally impactful as possible,” Silverthorn said. “This means keeping programming and keeping funding cuts related to enrollment changes only. When I was first elected

to the board, the district was nearly insolvent. Now, our expenditures are funded in cash and we have a healthy reserve and funds that can help schools keep programming available for students.” Ray said it was unfortunate the community did not have a chance to give its input on the proposed changes until after they were made. “I think we learned a lot. Lesson one is that when we have this kind of an impact on student learning, we need to slow the process down,” Ray said. “That means we need to be thinking thoroughly before making a decision.” Take it to the ballot? Douglas County residents said no the past two times school-funding issues made the ballot. The community voted down a $200 million bond issue in 2011 that would have gone toward building three new schools in Castle Rock and Parker and a $29 million mill levy override that would have provided funding for instructional expenses and pay-forperformance for teachers. In 2008, Douglas County voters rejected a $395 million bond issue and a $17 million mill levy override to support building new schools, improving student achievement, recruiting and retaining the workforce and improving the district’s technological advances in the face of expanded enrollment. Kane said district staff is gathering data and will present options for a ballot measure to the public before the next school year. “If we want to put a tax incentive on the ballot, we need to make sure that we convince you that we are going to be the best stewards possible of the money we have,” Ray said. Cook said that the more the community and district can work together, the easier it will be to garner support for a possible tax measure from the public. “If we are going to win over those voters, we need to show that we’re on the same page,” he said. “It’s a different day. Let us demonstrate the trust that we can show you. And if our actions aren’t showing it, call us on it. We’ll answer.”

One of the two bills would provide training for teachers BY MIKE DIFERDINANDO MDIFERDINANDO@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

The Douglas County Board of Education voted to support a pair of bills that would allow people, including teachers, with a concealed carry permit to carry a handgun on school campuses. One of the measures was killed in the state House the day after the school board’s Feb. 7 meeting and the other recently passed the Senate and was sent to the House. Both bills were introduced and supported by Republicans, who control the Senate, but opposed by Democrats, who hold a majority in the House. The board’s motion of support does not have any official standing, but serves to signify its backing of the legislation. House Bill 17-1036, a measure that would have changed the law to allow anyone with a concealed carry permit to carry a handgun on public

school grounds, garnered a 4-3 vote of support from the school board. It was voted down on a 6-3 party-line vote in a House committee on Feb. 8. Its sponsors were state Reps. Patrick Neville, R-Castle Rock, and Kim Ransom, R-Acres Green, and state Sen. Tim Neville, R-Jefferson County. The board also voted 4-3 to support Senate Bill 17-005, which would allow teachers and other public school employees who have concealed carry permits to carry a handgun on campus after completing safety training. The legislation — which passed the Senate on Feb. 6 — is sponsored by Senate Majority Leader Chris Holbert, R-Parker, and Patrick Neville. It would allow a county sheriff to provide a safety-training course to employees of any public elementary, middle, junior high or high school who has a permit to carry a concealed handgun. Once that training is completed, the employee would be permitted to carry the handgun on campus. On both bills, Meghann Silverthorn, Judith Reynolds, James Geddes and Steven Peck voted in favor of support, while David Ray, Anne-Marie Lemieux and Wendy Vogel were opposed. SEE GUNS, P8

School employee gun training bill passes BY ALEX DEWIND ADEWIND@COLORADOCOMMUNITY

A bill that would allow teachers and other public school employees who have the proper permit to carry a handgun on campus after completing safety training has passed the state Senate. Meanwhile, a measure that would have allowed anyone with a concealed carry permit to carry a handgun on public school grounds was defeated in the House. Both bills were introduced and supported by Republicans, who control the Senate, but opposed by Democrats, who hold a majority in the House. Senate Bill 17-005 is sponsored by Senate Majority Leader Chris Holbert, R-Parker, and House Minority Leader Patrick Neville, R-Castle Rock. It would allow a county sheriff to provide a safety-training course to any employee of any public elementary, middle, junior high or high school who has a permit to carry a concealed handgun, a summary of the bill says. Once that training is completed, the employee would be permitted to carry the handgun on campus. It was approved 18-17, a party-line vote, on Feb. 6. It will now face an uphill battle in the House. Holbert said his bill encourages a greater level of training for all people who are armed in public schools, including law enforcement and staff who are hired as private security

guards. As part of the bill, a county sheriff would consult with the school district in the sheriff ’s county to establish a curriculum for the safety-training course. Individual school districts would need to approve the program set up by the sheriff and would be able to cap the number of employees who are permitted to carry a gun at each school. House Bill 17-1036, which would have changed the law to allow anyone with a concealed carry permit to bring a handgun on campus, was voted down on a 6-3 party-line vote in a House committee on Feb. 8. Its sponsors were Patrick Neville and state Rep. Kim Ransom, R-Acres Green, and state Sen. Tim Neville, R-Jefferson County. “I believe teachers should focus on teaching and nurturing our children, not act as armed security,” state Rep. Susan Lontine, D-Denver, told the committee, according to a news release. Chris Gdowski, superintendent for Adams 12 Five Star Schools, said arming his employees is not something he’s interested in doing. His district has plenty of safety protocols in place. “Due to our existing safety policies, the presence of our school resource officers in school buildings, and other safety and security staff throughout our district, state legislation on weapon use in schools is not an avenue we are interested in pursuing at this time,” Gdowski said.

Texting and driving bill advances in Legislature Penalties amended as measure moves to Senate Finance Committee STAFF REPORT

A bill to increase penalties for drivers convicted of distracted driving related to cellphone use passed the state Senate’s State, Veterans & Military Affairs Committee on Feb. 8 by a 4-1 vote. The committee amended some of the bill’s language and changed penalties assessed to drivers in an effort to gain more bipartisan support. The bill, sponsored by Sen. Lois

Court, D-Denver, originally included a fine of $500 and five points on the driver’s license for a first offense and a $750 fine and six points for a second or subsequent offense. Current law requires a $50 fine and one point for a first offense and a $100 fine and one point for subsequent offenses. After it was rewritten, the bill calls for a penalty of a $300 fine and four points on the driver’s license per occurrence. State Rep. Jovan Melton, D- Aurora, is sponsoring the bill in the House. The next step for the bill is a vote by the Senate Finance Committee, scheduled for Feb. 16. Court is confident the bill will advance to the full Senate thereafter and move to the House by the end of the month.

GUNS FROM PAGE 6

While all of the board members agreed that 17-1036 was likely to die in the House, each thought it was import to advocate for their point of view in the school safety debate. “This piece of legislation is not outside the realm of what is acceptable by the people of Douglas County,” Peck said. “The only thing that will stop a bad person with a gun is a good person with a gun.” Ray rejected this line of thinking. “I philosophically do not believe that when you put more guns in a place it makes it safer,” Ray said. Vogel argued that the district already employs armed security personnel and that “there is no need to go beyond that.” Lemieux raised questions about the potential liability and risks associated with allowing teachers to be armed on school grounds. “Our teachers are not equipped to

do this,” she said. “This is not what they went to school for.” Geddes, while supporting the bill, said he preferred a more comprehensive solution that would see armed and trained security personnel in every school in the district. “I think there are other ways to protect our schools,” Geddes said. “We could be the world’s leader in safe schools.” Reynolds, who said she grew up around firearms, said she supported the bill on principle and that “people should be able to protect themselves.” DCSD has employed armed security officers since 2003. In addition, in 2013, the district began its School Marshal Program, in partnership with the Douglas County Sheriff ’s Office and Castle Rock, Lone Tree and Parker police departments. Officers and deputies provide security at elementary and middle schools by making multiple daily unannounced visits. The Douglas County School District comprises 87 schools and about 67,000 students.

Tri-County Health Department offers coupons for radon testing Agency urges homeowners to check for radioactive gas BY ALEX DEWIND ADEWIND@COLORADOCOMMUNITY

Kari Crist recently had her basement checked for radon, a naturally occurring radioactive gas. Crist, of Highlands Ranch, was spending more than 15 hours, seven days a week in an art studio in her basement. Her husband’s office is also located in that part of the home. The level of radon in Crist’s basement was three times the limit. The Environmental Protection Agency recommends fixing homes that have levels at or above 4pCi/L. “Not something to mess with,” Crist wrote on a Facebook page called Word of Mouth Highlands Ranch. “And if you’ve already had it checked, check it again. It can turn up later.” To encourage homeowners to test their homes for radon, Tri-County Health Department — which serves more than 1.4 million people in Adams, Arapahoe and Douglas counties — is providing coupons for free radon test kits. “Although there is no safe level of radon, a simple, inexpensive test will tell you if the home you live in or are intending to buy needs to be fixed,” a media release from Tri-County Health Department says. “It is easy to test your home and radon levels can be reduced with a radon reduction system.” Radon, a radioactive gas that forms naturally when radioactive metals break down in rocks, soil and groundwater, is the second leading cause of lung cancer after cigarette smoking, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. People can be exposed to radon primarily from breathing radon in air that comes through cracks and gaps in buildings

HOW TO GET A FREE COUPON Coupon quantities are limited. Call first to reserve or to see if test kits are still available. The four Tri-County Health Department locations are: Administration/Greenwood Village: 6162 S. Willow Drive, 720-200-1670 Castle Rock: 4400 Castleton Court, 303-6637650 Aurora: 15400 E. 14th Place, 303-363-3055 Commerce City: 4201 E. 72nd Ave., 303-2886816 and homes, the CDC says. According to the Tri-County Health Department, in Colorado approximately 500 people die annually from radon-induced lung cancer. In Douglas County, 39.6 percent of household radon tests were above the recommended EPA action limit, as in Crist’s situation. In Adams County that rate was 24.2 percent and 44.4 percent in Arapahoe County. Steven Chevalier, environmental health manager at Tri-County Health Department, recently bought a new home that had an average level of radon of 6.4 pCi/L. According to Tri-County Health Department, that number is comparable to having more than 200 chest X-rays every year. “Investing in a radon mitigation system for $850 is a small price to pay for the health of our family,” Chevalier said in the media release. “The average price of a radon mitigation system in Colorado is $1,200.” According to the EPA, the primary method used to reduce radon in a home is a vent pipe system and fan, which pulls radon from beneath the house and vents it to the outside. The system does not require major changes to a home, the EPA says, and is more efficient if foundation cracks and other openings are sealed.

Castle Rock police seek robbery suspects STAFF REPORT

Castle Rock police are asking for the public’s help in locating three suspects in a robbery and attempted carjacking along the 4700 block of Highway 86 on Feb. 10. Police say the victim stopped along the highway to help a woman in apparent distress. Two men who took the victim’s money, watch and sunglasses then confronted the victim, who sustained minor injuries. At the time of the incident, the suspects were believed to be driving an older, dark-green, twodoor Cadillac, according to a news release. The car was last seen driving east on Highway 86. The suspects are described as

a woman of medium complexion with curly hair, 20 to 25 years old, wearing a white shirt and jeans; a Hispanic or Pacific Islander man with dark skin and a face tattoo, 20 to 25 years old, wearing a dark shirt; and a man with brown hair and goatee, 20 to 25 years old, wearing a blue shirt with a cartoon character design. The victim was able to drive to an urgent care facility and was treated and released, the release states. The details of the crime are still under investigation. No other information was available as of the morning of Feb. 13. Police are asking anyone who sees the suspects to call 911. If residents have any other information, call the tip line at 720-733-3517.

Daddy Daughter Ball a hit in Castle Rock BY JESSICA GIBBS JGIBBS@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

When “Call Me Maybe” by Carly Rae Jepsen played, it wasn’t clear who was having more fun — the daughters or their fathers. Attendance at the 17th annual Daddy Daughter Ball on Feb. 10 at the Douglas County Events Center in Castle Rock reached an estimated 1,300 people based on ticket sales, event organizers said. It marks the event’s largest turnout in recent years. Pairs of all ages came to enjoy a night filled with hit songs and dance floor classics. “It’s awesome,” Justin Brazell said of the dance. Brazell attended for his second time with 3-year-old Morgan, who danced literal circles around him all night. “Last year, the first two hours she just stood there,” he said. “This year is a whole different story.” Following tradition, the Castle Rock Parks and Recreation Department’s Teen Advisory Group hosted a raffle. The group is made up of young residents who help plan and carry out parks and rec activities. Event proceeds help benefit the Castle Rock Recreation Center’s scholarship fund.

Castle Rock alpaca store sheds light on growing industry Everything Alpaca offers luxury, locally created products BY JESSICA GIBBS JGIBBS@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

It’s all about alpacas at 350 Third Street in Castle Rock. There, thrives a small shop appropriately named Everything Alpaca. It’s filled to the brim with what owner Deb Powers calls “luxury” alpaca products. Prime examples are the $600 coats her customers can’t wait to get their hands on. Coveted for their warm yet surprisingly lightweight material, the coats are one of her hottest-selling items. The distributor once discontinued the coats, but because of high demand, Powers fought to have the products reinstated. Powers and her vendors provide customers with a wide variety of alpaca products. Their inventory includes socks, gloves, shawls, sweaters, scarves, hats, slippers and authentic alpaca yarn. They’re sticklers about the merchandise. Yarn containing a measly 10 percent alpaca fiber doesn’t cut it, Powers said. Their yarns are a blend of no less than 50 percent alpaca fiber. The 10-year-old store is a “farmto-retail” operation. The vendors’

WINNING WORDS

Michael Norton

T

his week I would like to share a quick story with you about a boy and his journey and understanding of the bigger picture while finding purpose along the way to becoming a man. His story starts out very sadly as his father dies in a car accident when the boy was only 5 years old. He had a brother and two sisters, so his father’s death left his mom alone to raise four children on her own. Friends and neighbors helped out as much as they could and were around often enough in the beginning, but as time went on, they had to tend to their own lives and families. Extended family played a huge part of helping to raise the young boy and his siblings; in particular, his

grandparents were extremely loving and supportive. A few years went by and the young boy’s mother did remarry. However, it was an unhealthy marriage and there was plenty of trouble and hardships for the family. After enduring the marriage for 10 years his mother and stepfather divorced. Although difficult to get by and divorce is never easy, it was healthier for everyone. And within another two years, his mother remarried once again. This was also unfortunately a short-lived marriage as the boy, who by now was a teenager, watched as his mother’s newest husband and the family’s newest stepfather passed away unexpectedly one day while hanging the Christmas

lights on the outside of the house. Throughout this young man’s life, his grandparents had raised him in the church. However, as his life seemed to be filled with more struggles and misery than he felt he could handle, he was often conflicted with how he felt about the church and God. It seemed as though his friends and neighbors and cousins and other families had “normal” lives compared to his own life and he wondered for years why this was happening to him and his family. His patience eventually gave in to anger and resentment and he found himself shaking his fist at the sky and cursing and SEE NORTON, P13

Hey, speeders: There’s nothing pedestrian about this concern

QUIET DESPERATION

live on a street named after a sobbing tree. The street is a shortcut to a nearby high school. The posted speed limit is 25 mph. But you wouldn’t know it, mornings, when the teenagers are on their way. Maybe they’re just late for school. I wonder if they would rather be late for school, or headed to court, to appear in front of a judge on reckless driving and manslaughter charges? My street is lined with children — little children. Now and then, they get away from a parent. My street is lined with dog owners, who like to walk their dogs without the fear of turning into a couple of asphalt scabs. There’s one old guy who walks his incontinent dachshund off and on all day long. He’s the neighborhood Grinch, but he loves his dog.

The two of them are a familiar sight on my street. They don’t walk very far on each trip. The dog is old and has very short legs. In the morning this is what they hear: Whoosh. Whoosh. Whoosh. Whoosh. Teenagers, your first driver’s license, loud music, and obliviousness to the law all go together. And that’s fine. Take it out somewhere else. Just not up and down subdivision streets that are lined with children and dogs. John Kay is 72. He was born Joachim Fritz Krauledat in East Prussia, Germany (now a part of Russia). He and his family made their way to Canada, and then to the United States. He wears sunglasses, indoors and outdoors, all day long. Kay is legally blind. The punch line is that Kay and his band Steppenwolf recorded a song that you could be listening to right now, as background for this

column. “Born to Be Wild” is everywhere. Maybe you first heard it when you watched “Easy Rider” in 1969. Maybe you heard it again during the Coen brothers’ 2017 Super Bowl commercial. It was a teenager’s anthem when I was a teenager, and it still is. I was not, however, born to be wild. At the age of 15, I turned 35. I didn’t want it, it just happened. There was something about a murder. I was a witness. I had to sit up straight and talk like an adult for the first time. In 2001, I was shown a transcript of my testimony in 1963. It surprised me. I sounded good: complete sentences, with no fillers. Like “like.” I was unwild in college. The song has never suited me, and Steppenwolf was never one of my favorite bands. However, I took to “Steppenwolf ” the novel, SEE SMITH, P30

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Guns in schools a bad idea On Feb. 6, Senate Bill 17-005, a bill that would allow a county sheriff to provide training to educators seeking to carry a concealed weapon in school, led by state Sen. Chris Holbert, of Parker, and state Rep. Patrick Neville, of Castle Rock, was approved in the Senate. As a school psychologist in a Douglas County school, and more importantly, the parent of Douglas County students, I have grave concerns as this bill moves forward.

Having worked over 20 years in public schools in both suburban schools and inner-city schools, including Richmond, Virginia, and Cincinnati, Ohio, I have never felt the need or desire to carry a firearm on school property, and I might add that I have handled over a dozen types of firearms. First, it is foolish to think that one can have easy access to a firearm to defend, and at the same time, guard against students also having access to the firearm. Studies show that

children are drawn to weapons and many will quickly figure out where firearms are located. Secondly, I have great doubts that all adults who carry handguns have the executive functioning skills required to discern level of threat and counter impulsive response when faced with a spectrum of stressful situations. Our role as educators, principals, psychologists, social workers, etc. is not to be public defenders. Our role is, among other things, to create a climate of calm and thoughtful prob-

lem-solving. We try to teach students to work through problems through verbal exchange, not physical acts of violence. By carrying weapons on school grounds, not only do we create a stifling climate of hostility and a greater potential for accidental and purposeful gun shootings, we send a clear message that schools are no longer a safe place to thrive and learn.

Washington affects economic growth, with changes coming thick and fast

T

he new administration is well underway and there are changes in policy almost daily. Congress is facing a packed legislative calendar during the first 100 days. It may be hard for the average person to keep up. Let’s review what we know so far and how it might affect the economy and investments. The first pledge was to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. Republicans have promised swift action on this priority although they have not formulated a specific plan as of this writing. They are working on the details of a replacement plan that would allow individuals to keep coverage during the implementation of the new reforms. Once a strategy is approved, it could still take several years to eliminate the current version of the ACA. The next top priority is regulatory reform. There have already been announcements about regulations ranging from FDA approval, corporate acquisitions, building codes, banking and even the Department of Labor client services rule that have been targeted. The theory is that less regulation will allow for higher growth. The question is, will there be a negative outcome for the consumer? Most of these regulations were designed for consumer protection, whether it be keeping corporations from becoming

yelling at God. As time went on, he eventually found his way back to church again, and he actually volunteered as one of the youth directors of the church. Every Friday night he would help the youth pastor lead the group. The youth group was open to everyone, not just members of that particular church. One Friday night a young girl showed up to attend youth group. She kept to herself most nights and was very quiet. And then one night, an opportunity came up that allowed the young man and the new girl attending the youth group meetings to talk. And as she shared her story, in that instant, the young man knew immediately that everything that had happened to him as he was growing up did not happen to punish him, but rather to prepare him for something bigger in his life. He was being prepared for this very moment with the young girl, and as he would find out later in life, he was also being prepared for many other opportunities just like it. You see, the young girl shared with him that she was feeling bad, she was feeling hurt, and she was feeling sad and angry all at the same time. She had lost her mom, her father remarried, he later divorced, and then remarried again, and then unfortunately divorced again. She felt it was somehow her fault. She shared that her friends all seemed to live “normal” lives and seemed so much more stable. She was tired of the way people looked at her and her family. She felt like she

so large there is no price competition or protecting investors’ wealth through rules created out of the 2008 financial crisis. Many financial analysts agree that while deregulation can spur growth in the short term, it could add inflation and reduce consumer protection in the long

run. Tax reform was a major campaign promise that now has settled on the back burner. This is upsetting many major corporate CEOs who were welcomed to the White House in the first weeks only to find that tax cuts have been pushed into late 2017 at the earliest. At first glance, the Republican outline shows the current seven tax brackets being consolidated into three and some deductions going away. There is also talk of repealing the current estate tax but adding some capital gains for assets over a certain size. Again, this could spur some shortterm growth but the question remains if this is sustainable given our deficit. Stricter immigration policy could slow growth and increase inflation as we have fewer workers willing to work

didn’t belong. As the young man listened, with his own heart breaking as he was hearing his own life story played back to him, he was able to look her in the eye and not say, “I think I know how you feel.” Instead he was able to say, “I know exactly how you feel.” He shared his own story and there was immediate trust amongst them. The young girl continued attending youth group, made many friends, and her own family life stabilized as she grew and matured as a person and in her faith. And again, in that one instant, in that very moment, a boy, turned teenager, turned young man, realized that there really is a bigger picture, there really is a purpose, he was not here by accident, and that his own life story, even as tragic as it may have seemed, was leading him and preparing him for something far greater in life. And sometimes it takes years, maybe even many years for us to get past the anger, frustration, and pain before we can see and understand it all. We just have to be open to seeing it, or we may end up missing the opportunity to see the bigger picture and finding our own purpose. How about you? Is something happening right now that is confusing, frustrating, and making it hard for you to see the bigger picture? I really would love to hear all about it at gotonorton@gmail.com. And when we can look through and even past the tragedies and triumphs of life so that we can see the bigger picture, it really will be a better than good week.

menial jobs for low pay. This along with a push for more infrastructure spending could stretch the employment picture, forcing wages and benefits higher to attract more American workers to these jobs. This in turn could fuel higher costs of goods and services as businesses ranging from retail to construction have higher overhead. Trade agreements among a myriad of other agenda items remain uncertain. Historically both fiscal stimulus (tax cuts) and protectionist policies have tended to boost inflation. Stimulus in the form of infrastructure spending typically provided the greatest benefit at the beginning of an economic cycle when unemployment is high and the economy has significant upside potential. The fact this is coming late in the cycle, when unemployment is low and we have been in recovery for eight years, is adding uncertainty that the outcome will be positive for America.

In summary, some of the new policies should spur economic growth but likely at the price of inflation, including taxing imports. Corporate earnings appear positive for the time being, but higher labor costs can put a damper on the length of the upward trend. Fewer regulations could lighten the cost structure of some industries, but not without additional risks to the consumer. Stay tuned … we are only a month into the new administration.

ALPACAS FROM PAGE 11

of Calhan with her husband. Today the couple has a herd of 50 alpacas, but she can still remember purchasing her first female. Before the Great Recession, she said, alpacas sold for much more than the going price today. Dillon started her herd in 2007 with a $17,000 pregnant female. She wasn’t a prize animal, Dillon said, but she could teach them the basics of alpaca farming. “I still have that first baby,” she said. Today, Dillon said female alpacas sell for anywhere between $2,000 and $30,000. What a buyer looks for depends on the type of operation they are trying to run. Alpaca farmers and ranchers will typically join the industry to either start a breeding program or produce alpaca fiber. Alpaca fiber, or fleece, is known for being warmer, stronger, lighter and more resilient than wool from sheep, according to the Alpaca Owners Association Inc. Its feel is often compared to silk. The fleece comes in a variety of natural colors, such as brown, black and gray, but is also easy to dye. And although it’s less common in the U.S., there is a market for alpaca meat, which can be found on the menu in New England, Dillon said. “I can’t eat anything I name,” she said. Dillon has a history in the theater. All her alpacas are named for characters in her favorite productions. She

Alpacas are typically ranched or farmed for two purposes: breedng or fiber. Some operations focus on developing a breeding program, others produce fiber that can be turned into items such as yarns or clothing. PHOTOS BY JESSICA GIBBS loves the breed for their gentle nature, she said. Alpacas are a cousin to the camel and the llama, and although just as guilty of spitting at a foe, they’re not aggressive. Alpacas have been a fixture in South American agriculture for centuries. In recent decades, they’ve grown in popularity throughout the U.S. According to the National Sustainable Agriculture Information Service, there were more than 170,000 alpacas registered in North America as of 2011. Most alpaca productions in the U.S. are smaller, what’s known as a “cottage industry.” But Everything Alpaca hopes to see

the industry grow. On Feb. 8, Dillon was able to spread the word to one more person through the fiber arts classes offered at the shop. Just before 2 p.m., in walked Susie Johnson, of Castle Rock, for her Introduction to Loom Knitting class. “I’m a quilter,” Johnson said. “Not much of a knitter.” Her granddaughter, however, wanted to learn, and Johnson thought it would be a good activity for the two of them. Over the next hour, Dillon showed Johnson how to maneuver a handloom while sharing facts about alpacas through their conversation. Most ranches are off the beaten path, she told Johnson, and there are more than 300 alpaca farms in Colo-

rado alone. Newcomers will often find a mentor rancher who can teach them the trade. Overall, she said, the alpaca industry is a supportive community. She too found her mentors when getting started, and remains close to alpaca ranchers nearby. She knows through experience that if there’s a problem on her ranch, a neighboring alpaca rancher will drop what they’re doing to help her. That’s exactly what she loves most about the industry, Dillon said. It’s not competitive, but rather an encouraging environment. “We are trying to grow the industry,” Dillon said, “not trying to outdo each other.”

Highlands Ranch teen sentenced for role in murder plot Brooke Higgins takes the stand, apologizes to community BY ALEX DEWIND ADEWIND@COLORADOCOMMUNITY

At her sentencing hearing, Brooke Higgins, a teenager convicted of a plot to kill staff and students at Mountain Vista High School, took the stand and wept as she apologized to the community. “Finally and most importantly, I want to say I’m sorry,” said Higgins, who was joined at the stand by her two lawyers. “I reflect on that time and it doesn’t seem like me, it doesn’t seem like anything I could have thought, written or done.” Higgins, now 17, was formally sentenced Feb. 8 at a hearing at the Douglas County Courthouse in Castle Rock. Higgins pleaded guilty to two charges, one as a juvenile and one as an adult, on Dec. 20. She will spend three years in the Department of Youth Corrections — including the past year that she has been in custody — for solicitation to commit murder, for which she was prosecuted as a juvenile. That will be followed by four years of adult supervised probation with mental health treatment in the adult case, conspiracy to commit muder. If she successfully completes the probation sentence, she can have the adult conviction sealed. Higgins and Sienna Johnson were arrested in December 2015 after TextA-Tip reported their alleged murder plot against the high school in Highlands Ranch. They were sophomores and 16 at the time. Both were charged as adults in January 2016 with conspiracy to commit first-degree murder with extreme indifference and conspiracy to commit first-degree murder after deliberation. Johnson’s next court appearance is scheduled for Feb. 27. Unlike past hearings, the Douglas County courtroom where Higgins’ sentencing hearing was held was filled with family members and friends. Several witnesses, including a teacher, a child psychiatrist, a juvenile correc-

Higgins, a former Mountain Vista high school student, was sentenced to three years in a juvenile corrections facility, followed by four years of adult probation, for conspiracy to commit murder and solicitation to commit murder in connection with a plot to attack her school. POOL PHOTO BY MIKE GRADY/KUSA tions officer, a public safety psychologist and Higgins’ father, Thomas Higgins, took the stand. “High school was and is not the best year in our lives. It is a time poor choices are made and friends are made and lost,” said J.J. Babbs, a Mountain Vista High School teacher who taught Higgins for a year. “Just like high school didn’t define any of us, I know it doesn’t define her.” Thomas Higgins’ expressed his disappointment in the court system, arguing that his daughter’s case should have been kept in juvenile court. “I’m outraged that (District Attorney George) Brauchler would file a girl in adult court who didn’t have any weapons and has never hurt anyone before in her life,” he said. “The silver lining is that we have a daughter who is safe and healthy.” Court testimonies and Higgins’ arrest affidavit, which was released in early January, paint the picture of a teenager who struggled with depression, post traumatic stress disorder and drug abuse. According to the affidavit, Higgins brought the idea of a school shooting

to Johnson in December 2015 and the two took steps toward carrying out their plan. They planned to kill themselves after carrying out the attack, according to the document. Higgins tried to obtain guns through other individuals, pawn shops and online stores. Johnson, whose name appears redacted in the affidavit, created an intricate map of the school that included all exits, the busiest locations and times and information on the school’s security, the document says. In her journal, Higgins had written about cocaine use, suicidal thoughts and feelings of sadness. She wrote about being in counseling, hoping it would create a new chapter in her life. She also wrote about how she wished she had been part of the 1999 Columbine High School mass shooting that left 12 students and a teacher dead. One of Higgins’ lawyers, Iris Eytan, argued at the sentencing hearing that Higgins never planned to shoot up the school. “Brooke was 16 and Googling and writing things that she thought no one would see,” Eytan said. “She was

clouded by depression and drugs.” At the sentencing hearing, Brauchler referenced a slideshow that outlined key evidence in the case, including journal entries, text messages and photos taken by Higgins. He said that Higgins went to a friend’s house to try to obtain a gun. “At the end of the day, judge, this is no victim. She made the decision that she made, she knew what she was doing and she took steps. This wasn’t just words,” Brauchler said. Judge Paul King acknowledged certain factors of Higgins’ life that played a role in the case, including her home life and her parents’ divorce. He also recognized the problems Higgins had created in her life, including her choice of friends and her drug use. “Some of the problems you have are vested on you by adults,” King said to Higgins. “Some of these problems lay squarely on your feet. “Now every parent has to say, ‘Is my child going to be protected from being murdered by their fellow classmates?’ That’s not a joke, we in Colorado know that all too well.”

book. “It is almost like a treasure box, you never know what you are going to discover,” said Fernando Branch, London’s father. Rewind to spring break 2016. Fernando, a principal at Noel Community Art School, decided to spend his weeklong break to complete a project with his daughters that would benefit the community. Despite the cold weather and 1-yearold daughter Lauren’s persistence in stealing the wood glue, Fernando and his family built their Little Free Library and put it up in front of their home on South Madison Circle in Centennial in mid-January. Building the box is a memory he will always have with his daughters, Fernando said. London adores keeping track of what is new. For both of his daughters, their favorite book found in their library, so far, has been “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” by Eric Carle. “She runs over there to see if some-

NOT JUST FOR YOUNG FAMILIES Young families are not the only Little Free Library lovers. Josh Beers, 17, from Golden employed his Boy Scout troup to build some for the community. Each year, Boy Scouts plan, fund and complete service projects to earn their Eagle Scout badges. Josh’s mom told him about a Little Free Library she came across on her walk and, after some research, Josh decided to make a few for his service project.

On littlefreelibrary.org, a variety of alreadybuilt library hutches are available for purchase. For those interested in building a Little Free Library, the website offers resources, support and inspiration.

After planting the libraries in front of a church, an apartment complex and within a community, Josh found that each library is sustaining itself.

In addition, you can find the Little Free Library nearest to you by going to the same website and clicking on “map.”

one has put something in there that she wants,” Fernando said. “I love to see that it started an enthusiasm for reading in her.” Fernando also is excited about the response from his neighbors. “While I was out there with the girls measuring, people would stop and ask what we were doing,” Fernando said. “It started so many conversations.” Conversations at the box go beyond a friendly “hello.” He finds the Little Free Library to be a way for people to learn about the diversities found in his own neighborhood. He believes it brings people together with similarities. “When we engage in these projects with our families, it encourages the American values that we share,” Fernando said. “The core of reading is

education. As a society, we are really quick to point out the differences of us all. But if we focus on the love of the things we share in common, like the love to read and educate ourselves — that is a unifier.” The Little Free Library is, at its core, a small-scale neighborhood book exchange. A structure sheltering between 20 to 60 books is built or purchased by a community member and planted in the community. Whoever comes across a Little Free Library is welcome to either take a book or leave a book. Margret Aldrich, media and programming director at the Little Free Library nonprofit organization, based in Hudson, Wisconsin, said the library becomes self-sustaining.

“I liked the idea of a self-sufficient library,” Josh said. “It was like an experiment.”

In late January, the Little Free Library started the Action Book Club.

Different book clubs can communicate online. To sign up an Action Book Club of your own, visit littlefreelibrary.org/actionbookclub.

Swallow Hill gives new songwriters a chance to shine ne of the trickiest things about being a musician is getting your music out there where people can actually

hear it. And while there’s a slew of online platforms to host music for free, that doesn’t mean people will hear it. That’s where Swallow Hill Music comes in. For the ninth year, the organization is hosting its annual Young Writers Competition for performers in middle and high school. “Submissions have to be original lyrics that can be performed live,” said Cheri Gonzales, director of Swallow Hill’s school operations. “The biggest prize for our winners is the opportunity to perform at our venues, and to have some time in a professional recording studio.” But for Thomas Koenigs, who won the contest in 2015, there was a greater prize. “Winning wasn’t the most important thing, although it was very gratifying,” he remembered. “For me, the best part was meeting all these people, and making some crazy important connections.” Swallow Hill is accepting submis-

countries. Colorado is home to more than 600 Little Free Libraries. According to Aldrich, the libraries become community hubs. There is no style guide dictating the appearance of a Little Free Library. Though the usual structure resembles a birdhouse or a dollhouse, people are encouraged to be creative. There are Little Free Libraries that are brightly painted or shaped like robots, police-call boxes, whales, log cabins and rowboats. y A $40 registration fee puts the library on the website’s official community map and database. The company sends an official “Little Free Library” sign and an information and resource packet. The trend also helps the homeless, who may not have access to books at conventional libraries because they have no address, Aldrich said.

Love at first sight Five years ago, Todd Walsh, his wife and their two daughters spent a vacation visiting friends. During a walk, they discovered a Little Free Library. The family instantly fell in love with the idea. Three summers later, Walsh was hammering the nails into his own Little Free Library for his home on West Applewood Knolls Drive in Lakewood. “Where we live in Lakewood, our house is right on the corner and it is a .popular route to a park,” Walsh said. “We have a lot of foot traffic.” The Slater Elementary School teacher only had time to work on the project while his daughters Maya, 6, and Nora, 4, were napping.

Gonzales said the nonprofit usually receives about 20 to 30 submissions, and from there 10 contestants are selected to perform live on April 1, at the Museum of Contemporary Art in downtown Denver.

While working on the project, Walsh’s neighbor walked across the street to see what was going on. The two discussed the Little Free Library and decided that their neighborhood needed not one, but two of the book hubs. Walsh completed both projects after a month of work. One is dedicated solely to housing children’s books while the other, directly across the street, holds books for teen and adult readers. “It has been amazing and we have loved it,” Walsh said. “It has been a great way for us to meet people. It is a great conversation starter. We watch from the windows and love seeing families on bike rides stop and take books.” Walsh did not stop building at two little libraries. The Slater Elementary sixth-graders, as a tradition, leave a contribution to their school before advancing to middle school. They commissioned Walsh in 2016 to make a Little Free Library for the school. To this day, passersby knock on

CLARKE’S ALBUM OF THE WEEK Selection: Ryan Adams’ “Prisoner” released on Pax Am/Blue Note records. Review: Adams’ first album of new material since 2014, “Prisoner” is a moving and heartfelt exploration of loves ending and beginning, at least partly inspired by his divorce from Mandy Moore in 2015. The album showcases some of Adams’ best and most devastating songwriting, and anyone

who has suffered a broken heart while find a line or two that hits like a punch to the gut. But for both Adams and the listener, there’s also beauty and release to be found in music. Favorite song: “Shiver and Shake” Best homage to Bruce Springsteen’s “Tunnel of Love”: “Tightrope”

Colorado ag office shares pot know-how Officials from other states gather to get expert advice about growing BY KRISTEN WYATT ASSOCIATED PRESS

North Carolina wants to know if marijuana could one day replace tobacco as a cash crop. Louisiana is wondering how pot holds up in high humidity. And Washington state has questions about water supplies for weed. Colorado agriculture officials this week briefed officials from about a dozen states — some that have legalized weed, others that joked their states will legalize pot “when hell freezes over” — to go over the basics of marijuana farming and swap stories about regulating a crop that the federal government still considers illegal. The Colorado Department of Agriculture is also working on the world’s first government-produced manual on how to grow marijuana. There’s no shortage of how-to books catering to pot growers both in and out of the black market, but Colorado’s forthcoming guidebook aims to apply established agronomy practices to the production of marijuana. “When you start with no knowledge at all, it’s rough,” said Mitch Yergert, head of Colorado’s Division of Plant

Industry, an agency within the state agriculture department that regulates marijuana production. Yergert conceded that Colorado agriculture officials ignored marijuana entirely for more than a dozen years, from the time voters in the state approved medical pot in 2000 until recreational pot shops started opening in 2014. “Nobody in our agency ever grew marijuana, so how are we supposed to develop best practices?” Yergert said. But marijuana’s commercial popularity, coupled with increasing concern over pesticides and unsafe growing conditions, forced the Agriculture Department to stop considering marijuana a running joke and start seeing it as a commercial crop in need of regulation. Colorado sold about a billion dollars’ worth of marijuana last year, making it a cash crop, the same as many others. Now the state agriculture department is sharing what it has learned about weed with other agriculture departments. Speaking at a recent soil-conservation conference in Denver, Yergert briefed agriculture officials from other states about how to inspect marijuana and hemp growers, and just as important, how to regulate a plant that remains illegal under federal law. “You kinda gotta get your mind around it,” Yergert said. Yergert even took the agriculture officials on a tour of a large Denver GET YOUR TICKETS TODAY!

Takács Quartet

Friday, February 24 at 8pm Recognized as one of the world's great ensembles, the Takács Quartet plays with a unique blend of drama, warmth, and humor, combining four distinct musical personalities to bring fresh insights to the string quartet repertoire. The program for the evening will be Ravel’s “Quartet in F Major,” Beethoven’s “Op. 133 (Gross Fugue)”, and Beethoven’s Op. 59 No. 1.

The Subdudes Friday, March 3 at 8pm This New Orleans-formed group is a living encapsulation of American music, a vibrant cauldron of sounds that stirs together meaty grooves and jazzy dynamics, soulful R&B swagger, asy vocal harmonies, cheeky rock ‘n’ roll attitude, and folky social consciousness.

pot-growing warehouse, where a marijuana grower showed them the plant’s entire cycle, starting as clones in one room before getting transplanted to bigger and bigger tubs. The grower, Tim Cullen, also showed the agriculture officials how the plant is trimmed and its psychoactive buds dried for smoking. Finally, the farm regulators saw how marijuana waste — errant leaves and such — are rendered unusable before being thrown away. “This is blowing my mind right now,” said Erica Pangelinan of the Northern Guam Soil and Water Conservation District. Pangelinan was using her cell phone to snap photos of wooden frames used to hold drying marijuana. Guam allows medical marijuana, but many states on the tour don’t. Still, the touring agriculture officials say they need to be prepared in case laws change to allow pot-growing at home. “We’re just looking to see what’s ahead,” said Pat Harris, director of North Carolina’s Division of Soil & Water Conservation. Some states represented on the tour plan to grow pot themselves. “We’re getting in the marijuana business in Louisiana, so we need to know what we’re doing,” said Brad Spicer of the state’s Office of Soil & Water Conservation, where the state Legislature has authorized two universities to grow the plant for medical use and research. Yergert warned the agriculture officials that regulating weed still isn’t

easy, and that agriculture departments should be prepared for pushback from their own staffs on working with pot growers. “Our guys were saying, I can’t pick my kids up from school because I smell like pot,” Yergert said. Another problem? Stony silence from federal agencies that state agriculture offices usually turn to for help. “It hasn’t gotten a lot more warm and fuzzy,” Yergert said. “I think they look at us as, `What an annoyance!’ I mean, they deal with drug smugglers and international cartels, and here’s the Colorado Department of Ag coming wanting a permit for something.” Cullen, the pot grower, urged the agriculture officials to look past the hurdles and see pot growers as farmers thirsty for guidance on growing healthy, profitable crops. “We’re looking for the same types of things that a farmer’s looking for. We want fast-growing, high-yielding, disease-resistant plants that are easy to work with,” said Cullen, who is one of Colorado’s largest pot growers and is advising the agriculture department on its forthcoming pot guidebook. “We want your help. We’d rather not rely on the 19-year-old at the grow shop.” The agronomists standing in the room of pot nodded, saying they’re open to sharing advice — though their knowledge must remain academic. “I can tell you how to grow it. But I can’t use it. I’m drug-tested for the state department of agriculture,” joked Max Jones of North Carolina.

‘The Zeus Problem’ came to stage via winding path Buntport started with one plan before switching to another BY SONYA ELLINGBOE SELLINGBOE@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

The Buntport company explains in the beginning of the program that members had started writing a different play, collaboratively, as they always do. “But a few months ago, we made an abrupt shift, choosing to make something that felt more tied to the times. Besides the current climate, we took inspiration from ‘Prometheus Bound,’ a story of what happens when someone defies the king of the gods.” They were joined by “the incomparable Jim Hunt” as the creative process moved forward, becoming “The Zeus Problem,” which will play through Feb. 25 at Denver’s Buntport Theater. Looking spiffy in a purple suit, Zeus (Jim Hunt) struts in front of the audience, backed by a black curtain — asking if they like his suit! He then gets fussy — “You need me, but I most definitely don’t need you … You’re like a bunch of disgusting artichokes!” He goes on to explain that he “needs new suits all the time … worship causes bloating … The rise (front seam where zipper is located) is not

IF YOU GO “THE ZEUS PROBLEM: A DARK COMEDY ABOUT A GOD AND THE MESS HE MADE” plays through Feb. 25 at Buntport Theater, 717 Lipan St., Denver.

($3 discount for students and seniors.) buntport.com. easily altered … I start there and build the whole suit around it …” He soon changes into baggy sweatpants. We hear dramatic, loud, stormy music and Zeus (who is given to throwing lightning bolts around) opens the curtain, revealing the scene. The stage is dominated by a huge wooden table, where Io (Erin Rollman), Prometheus (Erik Edborg) and a noisy, fussy eagle, in an outstanding costume (Hannah Duggan), are gathered at one end. American writer Thoreau is at the far end, translating from Aeschylus’ account of “Prometheus Bound.” Thoreau is annoyed that their words don’t rhyme! What is this, he wonders. “A dinner buffet? Liver buffet?” Zeus responds, “You didn’t receive a formal invitation? Did anybody? … Let’s play a game …” Prometheus is a god who crossed Zeus’ wishes and stole fire from the home of the gods to give to the humans he was charged with creating out of clay. He is punished by being

Jim Hunt storms and squabbles as Zeus, King of the Gods in “The Zeus Problem: A Dark Comedy About a God and the Mess He Made,” which plays through Feb. 25 at Buntport Theater. COURTESY PHOTO chained to a rock and the eagle keeps eating his liver, which keeps rejuvenating. “No onions!” the eagle complains. “Ever done a liver detox?” Zeus gave Prometheus’ brother the trouble-making Pandora, with her box of troubles. “That was not nice,” Io observes. Prometheus periodically quotes from Aeschylus’ poetic account of the story. “I’m so hungry,” Io keeps complaining — “I think I’ll just place an order!” (Io was an Argive princess whom Zeus lusted after. To hide her from the jealous goddess Hera, Zeus turned Io into a white heifer.) “People don’t deal with me — I deal

with them!” Zeus declares. “I want this story to get told without casting a negative light on yours truly.” “Aeschylus’ account doesn’t include Zeus — or an eagle,” Thoreau states. More lightning here! “When you fill your bellies, you forget about the gods,” Zeus complains — and with that, he closes the curtain on the others, telling the audience, “I don’t think you’re artichokes …” This most clever crew offers their view inspired by the daily headlines, enhanced by lightning bolts and artichokes. A quick mythology refresher would add to enjoyment perhaps, but it’s not necessary.

VOTING BEGINS st MARCH 1

Casey Adams first strapped on a pair of skis at the age of one and a half. About five years later, she decided she wanted to wear them to work when she grew up. “What really inspired me was watching the Olympics,” she said of the 2006 Winter Games. “After watching the Alpine skiers I decided — ‘I want to do that one day.’” Adams, 17, attended Challenge to Excellence Charter School from kindergarten to eighth grade, but her schedule grew hectic as she spent more time training in the mountains. To cut down on travel time, the family came up with an unconventional living arrangement, and at 14 the slopes became her second home Casey and her mother Karen now live in Breckenridge, commuting about an hour each way to Casey’s Minturn high school, Vail Ski and Snowboard Academy. Casey’s father is still in Parker, as was her older brother until he left for flight school in January. “We knew we would be spending more time in Breckenridge than in Parker,” Karen said. “People in the Front Range don’t understand her M

schedule sometimes, but we make it work … In the summer when everyone else is going to the mountains, we go home to Parker.” Casey said the change in schools was intimidating at first, and it took some time to ingratiate herself with her new friends. But being in school with a group of like-minded competitors has created a tight bond between her and her classmates. “I’m training with all the same people every day, we go to class together, and we travel together,” she said. Skiing competitions and trainings have taken Casey and her teammates around the country, and the world, including two three-week trips to Argentina and Chile over the last two years. And the training is paying off. Casey recently competed in the International Ski Federation Speed series in Aspen, earning her first top 10 finish, eighth place, in a downhill event. She also earned a spot to compete in the NORAM Alpine Speed events in Copper Mountain, competing with many members of the United States Ski Team. Casey said she’s keeping her career options open, researching colleges that have strong mathematics programs as well as ski teams. But her dream of making the U.S. Ski Team is still alive, and carving a sharp turn at full speed still gives her the same adrenaline boost she remembers from her first downhill run. “I just love adventure, I love speed,” she said. “It’s just such a rush.” Casey Adams takes a break from training to show off her smile in November. Adams first hit the slopes as a 1-year-old and decided she wanted to become a professional skier after watching the 2006 Olympic Games in Turin, Italy. COURTESY PHOTO

Some find park conditions are for the birds Canada geese and their droppings pose a dilemma for groundskeepers BY KYLE HARDING KHARDING@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

The south metro area’s parks and golf courses have become popular spots for Canada geese, frustrating many walkers, golfers and dog owners. “Redstone Park is disgusting right now,” Highlands Ranch resident Carrie Comeford wrote on the Facebook page Word of Mouth Highlands Ranch. “There are so many droppings around the playground there... unsavory.” Other than the geese themselves, the most visible sign of the birds is their waste blanketing the ground of parks, golf courses and sometimes, sidewalks. However, the geese, which are a protected species by both federal and state law, can also damage golf course greens by pecking through the surface to get to sand, which aids their digestion. So why do the geese like it here so much? “There are two things that attract them,” said Dave Brueggeman, parks manager for South Suburban Parks and Recreation District. “Bodies of water and open grass to graze on.” South Suburban manages more than 2,000 acres of open space across the south metro area — primarily in the

A GAGGLE OF FACTS • Canada geese call Colorado home yearround, according to Colorado Parks and Wildlife, but fall and winter see increased numbers as migratory birds come through. • The geese are protected by both federal and state laws, but non-lethal control activities in which there is no direct contact can be done without permits. This includes hazing, or scaring the geese away. • Egg and nest control activities, including coating the eggs with oil to keep them from hatching, require permits. • Other methods to control geese on property, Parks and Wildlife says, can include landscape modification, such as planting trees, bushes or hedges between grassy areas and water, building barriers like fences or rock walls, not feeding them or using commercially available repellents. Littleton, Lone Tree and west Centennial areas — with 74 parks and four golf courses. South Suburban controls geese by “hazing” them when they become a nuisance — using air horns or The Goosinator, a remote-controlled “predator,” to scare them away. But hazing must be done constantly in order to keep the geese at bay. “Resource-wise, it’s taxing,” Brueggeman said. The Highlands Ranch Metro District uses a variety of tactics to attempt to scare geese away from Redstone Park, its largest complex, including coyote cutouts, balloons, streamers and remote-controlled devices, according

Redstone Park in Highlands Ranch has a pond and open space making it a suitable place for geese to dwell. PHOTOS BY ALEX DEWIND parks and parkways manager Dirk Ambrose. “Nothing seems to reliably work for very long, nor can we afford to have staff constantly move them along,” he said in an email. Jamie Noebel, community relations manager of the Highlands Ranch Community Association, said residents have complained about bird droppings in parks and on sidewalks. Ambrose said that goose complaints typically rise when the spring sports season comes around. “Although it sure seems that the goose activity is on the rise this year, we have no hard data to confirm that,” he said. Colorado Parks and Wildlife spokeswoman Jennifer Churchill said it is hard to tell if the goose population has risen in recent years, but, anecdotally, there does seem to be more lately. The fact that the metro area’s largest bodies of waters don’t freeze over during the winter is an attraction for the geese. “We have open water all winter long so we have a heck of a lot of geese,” she said. Tim Davis, superintendent at Englewood’s Broken Tee golf complex, said in an email that the problem seems bigger this year. “It seems like every other golf course superintendent I talk to is dealing with a bigger mess than usual,” he said. Davis said that Broken Tee currently uses pyrotechnic devices to scare the geese away, but that doesn’t prevent them from landing on the course in the first place. Flashing strobe lights help deter them from nesting on the course’s ponds. Brueggeman said another thing that South Suburban can do is to control nests, with permitting from Parks and Wildlife. This is done by coating the eggs with corn oil, preventing them from hatching. The district is legally permitted to oil 200 eggs per year. An alternative method to controlling geese that has emerged is to scare them away with trained dogs. Tim Eubank, owner Littleton’s of Up & Away Goose Control, said that border collies are particularly effective because their behavior mimics that of the Arctic fox, a natural predator.

Dozens of Canada geese take a swim at a pond at Redstone Park in Highlands Ranch.

WHAT’S THE HARM? Goose waste can pose potential health hazards to people and pets. According to the Internet Center for Wildlife Damage Management — a nonprofit organization run by professors from several universities — parasites and bacteria can be carried in goose feces. E. coli, salmonella and listeria are among them. They can also carry viruses, including avian influenza. However, the center cautions that the presence of a disease does not necessarily translate into a public health threat. Find out more at icwdm.org Eubank said he currently contracts with 12 apartment complexes, including one where an elderly woman was knocked down by an attacking goose, three golf courses, four churches and a business park. He has also developed and marketed The Predator, a remote-controlled device similar to The Goosinator. Davis said that Broken Tee is working on a program to allow owners of herding breed dogs to train them on the course. He said dogs are typically the most effective form of goose hazing. He is also considering purchasing a remote-controlled device, which he says he has used effectively at another course he worked at. Churchill said trained dogs have proven successful and are allowed as long as they don’t harm the geese. Eubank’s dogs are trained not to touch the geese, but the geese don’t know that. “We’re just politely asking the geese to go hang out somewhere else,” Eubank said. — Staff writer Alex DeWind contributed to this report.

Braille Challenge offers competition, camaraderie Contest focuses on spelling, speed, reading comprehension, accuracy BY TOM SKELLEY TSKELLEY@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

The proctor reads the word to be spelled, uses it in a sentence for context, then repeats the word. “‘Advice,’” she reads. “‘Parents are known for giving good advice.’” She and the timekeeper chuckle softy at the example sentence as the spelling test begins. Three children, Lexi Mink, 8, Matthew Falco, 8, and Asher KorenZoloto, 9, sit at a long table, softly sounding out the word as their fingers spread across the keys of their Braille writers, searching for the correct combination of keys. “You can tell they’re enjoying it,” said Diane Covington, school and community liaison for the Colorado Center for the Blind in Littleton. “When you see a child get all excited with the clacking and dinging of the Braille writers all going, it’s so rewarding.” The center, in conjunction with the National Braille Institute and the Colorado School for the Deaf and Blind, hosted the 2017 Braille Challenge on Jan. 26.

Olson, the only sighted person in the room, kept the Braille writers from running out of paper and the children from running out of patience. “It’s a time to celebrate Braille, not for them to be stressed out,” he said.

“It’s for them to show what they know and have a great time doing it.” Koren-Zoloto and Falco were doing just that as they tussled with each other during a break. “I want to win, and I’m going to beat Matthew,” said Koren-Zoloto, a student at Westminster’s Cotton Creek Elementary. He has Leber’s congenital amaurosis, a degenerative eye disease affecting about one in every 80,000 people. Like many children his age, he enjoys reading Harry Potter books

dives and didn’t make it through all 11 dives. Last year I made it all the way to third place. “It’s pretty exciting to win the state championship. I hoped that I would win but I really didn’t think it would happen.” Barker held a 14.6-point lead following the first two diving rounds and went on to win the title with 493.25 points.

remember years ago, 29 to be exact, being in the Denver North gym for a memorable night of high school basketball. Manual’s Chucky Sproling set a singleOVERTIME game state record by scoring 74 points against the Vikings. Alameda’s boys basketball coach Henry Aguilar probably won’t forget the evening he spent in the North gym Feb. 6, when the Pirates outJim Benton lasted North, 95-93, in a four-overtime, non-league game. “It was like playing two games, it was a long night,” said Aguilar, who assumed the Alameda head coaching reins less than three weeks before the start of the season. “The win kind of helps bring us together. We’ve had a rough season. Four starters fouled out of the game against North and everybody was completely exhausted. We had to play the fourth overtime with four sophomores and one senior starter. That was tough.” The win helped boost Alameda’s overall record to 9-10. “The first overtime, they were up by two and our senior guard Anthony Lawson drove to the basket and hit two clutch free throws to send it to the second overtime,” Aguilar explained. “In the second overtime, we had a twopoint lead with like 20 seconds left and a younger guy took a shot when he wasn’t supposed to. The North point guard took it all the way and got a layup and sent it to the third overtime. “We hit two free throws and sent it to the last overtime. In the fourth overtime, four starters fouled out so we had four reserves. A couple of our younger players stepped up. A sophomore, Domonic Creazzi, hit a clutch three, we got fouled a couple times and made some free throws and ended up winning.” No stranger to titles Taelore Fehr knows what it takes to win a state gymnastics championship. Fehr, a 2009 Green Mountain graduate, was been hired as the new head coach for the Rams’ gymnastics program, according to Athletic Director Tommy Dodge. In 2006 and 2008, Fehr was a member of Green Mountain’s Class 5A state championship teams. The Rams were the state runner-up in 2005 and 2007. Fehr, who has been an assistant at Green Mountain for the past six years, takes control of the program that won the Class 4A state title last fall. SEE BENTON, P29

Activities Association, but there are 43 schools that have club teams and compete during the spring in the Colorado Boys High School Volleyball Association. The CHSAA Equity Committee delivered a side-out last month by failing to endorse a proposal to have boys volleyball added to the list of sanctioned sports. Adding boys volleyball would affect most school’s under Title IX, which aims to provide male and female students with varsity athletic oppor-

tunities in proportion to their school’s student body. Despite not getting a recommendation from the committee, some league could sponsor a bylaw that would seek to sanction boys volleyball at the April Legislative Council meeting.

a sophomore from Arapahoe, was second with 474.45 points. “After the prelims and semis and going into the finals, I was actually thinking that wow, maybe I have a shot at actually winning,” said Ohio Statebound Barker. “I performed pretty well. There were definitely some mistakes I made. I’m not going to be perfect, so I’m pretty happy.” In the 5A team standings, Arapahoe finished third with 321 behind runner-up Fairview and champion Fossil Ridge. Rock Canyon was sixth with 125 points. Jaguars sophomore Jessica Beckwith was fourth in the 100 butterfly and Rock Canyon scored points in the championship final of three relay events.

because it was about me, it seemed, and it became the theme of my master’s thesis. The middle-aged man, Harry Haller, in “Steppenwolf ” was not born to be wild either. He would never have driven my street like a bat out of hell, or a teenager late for school. Some people seek out preachers, and even hand over their Visa cards. Not me. I’m not preaching. Just asking. Slow down? You don’t want a 4-year-old stuck to your windshield. Or my incontinent dachshund.

Time for better health care fix The guest column by Joe Sammen demands a response. I find it very ironic he cites studies that the repeal of the ACA without replacement would lead to millions uninsured and replacement must contain certain protections. Where was this concern when millions lost coverage at the implementation of the ACA in the first place? The implementation of the ACA had to rely on deception (Pelosi: “We have to pass the law to find out what’s in the law”), and lies (Obama: “If you like your plan you can keep you plan; if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor”) to become law in the first place.

Yes, pre-existing coverage and adult children staying on parents’ plans until 26 are the good parts of the ACA. And they should be part of any new replacement plan. But the answer was to not upend coverage for 100 percent of the population to solve a problem for 10-15 percent of the population. There were much better alternative fixes for the 10-15 percent that lacked coverage than what the ACA did to everyone else. But Obama put his ideology ahead of what was good for the country and we ended up with what we have today — a failed ACA that has to be repealed and replaced.

BRAILLE FROM PAGE 27

“It was so hard,” said Falco, who attends Crown Pointe Academy in Westminster. “You have to do everything so fast.” A fall from a slide ruptured a cyst on Falco’s brain at age 4, taking most of his vision. A shunt keeps enough pressure off his optic nerve to preserve some of his sight, though that could change if the shunt fails. Nevertheless, Falco’s mother, Amber, said he’s more independent than most 8-year-olds she’s known. “He’s always saying ‘Mom, I want to cook you breakfast,’” she said. “He looks out for (his younger sisters), he’s their mediator when they fight and he wants to teach them Braille.” Like Koren-Zoloto, 8-year-old Lexi Mink, a student at Vista Peak

secretary. I based my argument on the confirmation hearings where she displayed an almost complete ignorance of public school issues. At the time of my writing the letter, I was unaware of the Center for American Progress report listing Cory Gardner as a recipient of $49,800 in campaign contributions from the DeVos family. Had I known that, I would have asked him to recuse himself from the vote because of ethics violations. To the credit of Sen. Gardner’s staff, shortly after his vote to confirm, I received a reply where he praises her as being a “long-time advocate for education reform.” He apparently is unaware that in Douglas County our school board has made “education reform” a dirty word that means to destroy our public schools.

Mink said the tests were “challenging” and she knows she’ll be able to use what she practiced there in her schoolwork. “Let’s just say that you have a little fun when you do it because you can get better and use what you learn at the Braille Challenge at school,” she said. It will take several days to tally the scores, and only 12 students from across the United States and Canada will be selected in May to advance to the national competition in California. And Mink wants to be one of them. “You have to work super hard if you’re going to win,” she said. “I want to win first place … then I would be able to go to California. And maybe Disney World.”
