DONISE NEWKIRK

Owner of A Berry in the Wild, 1057 Park St., also loves family and gardening About me We moved from California. We were in the San Joaquin Valley, which is the agricultural belt. We had our children and raised them out there, which was great. Being in a small community, it was a very involved community. That’s the thing I think I really noticed and liked about Castle Rock. Every time we’d come to visit, because my son lives here and his family, they were always having something downtown and there were always a lot of people participating. Opening my decor shop We are an event rental décor company. This is where you can come in for, from a dinner party table centerpiece to a corporate job. We’ve rebranded restaurants and businesses to show them how they can use their space for the public and brought in our things to stage it. The thing that we probably excel in the best is conceptual ideas for parties and events. My hobbies Decorating and creating has been my hobby. I love gardening, and that’s going to be something of a challenge here, I think, compared to home. As far as the soil and the weather. We like to play cards and

Army vet: ‘It’s for real that people actually care’ Douglas County company honors Adams County veteran with free landscaping makeover

MORE INFORMATION For more information on Landscaping for Vets, visit www.landscapingforvets.com.

BY JESSICA GIBBS JGIBBS@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

For a veteran who has served his country, serving his family by building them a backyard oasis became a challenge after unexpected health complications. A Douglas County landscaping company set out to make his mission a little easier. James Vines served 23 years of active duty in the U.S. Army. He worked as a truck driver for some of those years, moving equipment and troops, but also spent more than a decade handling the logistical planning for transport missions. “I went everywhere all over the world,” Vines said. “I was in Africa. I did a tour of Panama. I did two tours in Germany.” Toward the end of his career, he served as an operations sergeant and a battalion intelligence sergeant. Vines retired from the Army in 2011 and settled into a job with the U.S. Geological Survey, where he

James Vines and Jason Sakry will be teaming up to give Vines a landscaping makeover. Vines won this year’s Landscaping for Vets competition, in which Sakry’s company surprises a nominated veteran with free landscaping. COURTESY PHOTO now manages construction sites as a facility/project manager. With a 22-year-old daughter living in Texas and an 18-year-old son in Florida, also in the Army, Vines and his wife, Stephany, spent their free time fixing up the front and back yards of their Commerce City home. “When we bought this house it had been neglected for a long time,” Vines said. Bushes and trees were so overgrown in the backyard the fence

wasn’t visible. With the help of a neighbor, the Vines cleared out the overgrowth.They then took a chainsaw to bushes in front and, on hands and knees, dug out the roots. The work was harder than expected. Recovering from a lung tumor Breathing had become a struggle over the past couple of years, he said. Last year alone he contracted pneumonia five times.

In August, doctors discovered a tumor growing on his right lung. By September they removed part of the organ in an approximate five-hour procedure. Vines spent a week in the hospital and another three at home from work. The healing process was slow, he said, and he lacked energy. The next planned steps for their yard was to tear out grass, lay new sod and install a sprinkler system, but that went undone as Vines kept working toward recovery. “I steadily just started moving more and doing more, as I could,” he said. In time, Vines again planned to take up his landscape project. He and his family love the outdoors. They camp. They fish. They ride motorcycles. He wanted to create them an outdoor oasis. So Vines and his neighbor agreed to help fix up each other’s yards. “I was ready,” Vines said. “I don’t know how well I would have done but I was ready.” Then came a knock on his front door.

High schools face budget challenges, choices Leaders at schools determine how to spend money from shrinking budgets BY MIKE DIFERDINANDO MDIFERDINANDO@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Students at Highlands Ranch High School can expect fewer field trips next year and less school supplies to go around. At Castle View High School in Castle Rock, students will no longer take as many classes as they want because there will be fewer teachers to teach them. The two schools are among many in the Douglas County School District that are trying to figure out how to do the same with less. “We all have had some impact,” said Castle View Principal Rex Corr, who met recently with parents to discuss the changes and make plans for the

fall. “We operate on the fiscal realities that the state and the district pass down to us every year.” Those fiscal realities this year include flat state funding, lower enrollments at the elementary school level and changes to how district budgets are calculated. And that means schools are thinking more strategically about planning for the 2017-18 school year. “The reality for all of our schools is that we are tighter in Douglas County right now,” said Cory Wise, director of high schools. Highlands Ranch High School For Highlands Ranch High School, tightening the belt means less money for department budgets and extras like field trips. “What we chose here at Highlands Ranch High School was people over programs,” Principal Chris Page said. “That meant instead of putting $5,000 into 15 different departments, we combined all of that money and ensured

that we have enough to take care of the people aspect.” That means the school will be able to retain all of its current staff and won’t have to make any changes to curriculum or offerings to students, Page said. However, when parents saw zero dollars in the budget for new expenditures at a recent School Accountability Meeting, many voiced concern, he said. “The zero may freak some people out, but the truth of the matter is that we’re strategically planning,” Page said. “It may mean there isn’t as much paper to go around for copies, but it doesn’t mean that we’re not going to be able to function. We’re not shutting doors or anything like that.” Castle View High School At Castle View High School, Corr said the school has had to make adjustments because it can no longer count on one-time-use highly impacted money.

Each year, schools can apply to the district for “highly impacted” dollars to supplement site-based budgets. These funds are budgeted annually and awarded as one-time money to support schools that can demonstrate significant needs or special circumstances to warrant supplemental funding — $200,000 is available to be spread across the district. Castle View has received funding from this source over the past several years. The school’s model is unique in the district. Students choose tracks in one of four academies—Leadership, Global Studies and Communication; Science, Technology, Math and Engineering; Visual and Performing Arts; and Biotechnology and Health Sciences— and have more freedom when choosing elective classes. They have traditionally been able to complete eight courses a year, more than any other high school in the district, SEE BUDGET, P6

Golden eagles return to nest on Douglas County trail Portion of Wildcat Mountain and East-West trails close to protect nesting site BY STEPHANIE MASON SMASON@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Hikers who planned on flocking to Douglas County to hike Wildcat Mountain this spring should probably leave it to the birds: A nest of golden eagles is closing down a one-mile section of the East-West Regional Trail and the Wildcat Mountain Trail. The nesting birds are most likely the same pair that has frequented the trails for the past seven years, said Mark Giebel, Backcountry Wilderness area director for the Highlands Ranch Community Association. “It is rare for them to be nesting near an urban area like this,” Giebel said. Although Golden eagles are not listed as a threatened or endangered species, a federal act requires protection of their nesting areas. Enacted in 1940, the Golden and Bald Eagle Protection Act criminally

penalizes a person who takes, harms, possesses, sells, purchases, exports or imports any bald or golden eagle alive, dead or in any part. Penalties can be up to a $100,000 fine and one year of imprisonment. Every bird has an area in which it feels its nest is safe, said Justin Olson, district wildlife manager at Colorado Parks and Wildlife. Golden eagles, he

said, are especially sensitive, meaning that a one-mile buffer zone is a necessity. “Raptor nests are definitely something that we make a priority when it comes to development — and when it comes to urbanization as a whole,” Olson said. “Some species are more sensitive than others, especially during nesting season. Golden eagles are especially sensitive.” Wildcat Mountain, which sits south of McArthur Ranch Road and Monarch Boulevard in the HRCA Backcountry Open Space near Highlands Ranch and Lone Tree, is a historic golden eagle nesting site. So the community association knew a possibility existed, when the trails were being built, that the birds would nest there, even though they usually leave when human populations encroach on their habitat. If the nest, usually holding between one to three eggs, is successful, the trail will be closed through either July or August, until the chicks fly away. Nests are considered successful when a young eagle reaches maturity and can leave. A detour around the nesting area, running parallel to the trail, is avail-

DID YOU KNOW? Golden eagles generally live in rural areas with vast, natural landscape. They typically eat small mammals and fish. The birds reach 26 to 40 inches in length and have a wingspan of 5 feet 11 inches to 7 feet 8 inches. Breeding pairs typically stay together for life, returning to the site of the same nest for years. able for hikers seeking to continue their trek. The trail closure starts near Rocky Heights Middle School, 11033 Monarch Blvd. in Lone Tree, and extends south a mile. But the nest has failed the past few years because of natural occurrences such as bad weather and nest disturbances, Giebel said. There has been no evidence of human tampering. The trail closure is important to helping preserve the birds and allowing the young eagles the best chance to reach maturity, Colorado Park and Wildlife officials said. “From our perspective, it is a way to balance out our impact on wildlife in the state and in the region,” said Ben Plankis, the North East Region Trails coordinator for Colorado Parks and Wildlife.

Student creativity on display at district art show BY MIKE DIFERDINANDO MDIFERDINANDO@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

From photographs to sculptures to jewelry, handmade pieces of student artwork filled the Hilton Garden Inn in Highlands Ranch for the annual Douglas County Art Show March 31 through April 3. Students from every school in the district were invited to submit work to be showcased. Their work lined the walls and filled the tables of the hotel. Works included charcoal drawings by high school students and crayon and water color portraits by elementary school students. “It’s great stuff and we have artists from kindergartners to seniors,” said DCSD Director of Activities Derek Chaney, who helped lead and organize the event. “There are some talented artists in our district.” The art show was held at the Hilton for the first time this year, moving from the Lone Tree Arts Center.

because of its unique 4x4 block schedule, which allows students to complete four classes per semester because they attend those classes every day for extended periods. But students will now have caps of eight classes freshman year, seven classes sophomore and junior years and six classes as seniors. Douglas County high school students need a minimum of 24 credits to graduate. “We decided that it was not sustainable moving forward,” Corr said of the school’s unique programming. “Castle View had the luxury of that money being available each year in the past, but we can’t count on it every year.” Revenue, distribution and projections State funding through per-pupil revenue is expected to stay flat or increase only slightly for the 2017-18 school year. The per-pupil funding for the 2016-17 school year is $7,163.

For 2016-17, DCSD’s enrollment is 67,470, up from 66,896 in 2015-16, according to the Colorado Department of Education. However, district officials say some elementary schools are experiencing declining enrollments, which subsequently means less money. The district has projected the following schools will be under-utilized in the 2017-18 school year: Pine Lane Elementary, Mountain View Primary and Ponderosa High School in Parker; Arrowwood Elementary in Highlands Ranch; Larkspur Elementary; and Mesa Middle School in Castle Rock. Other schools projected to be underutilized by the 2021-22 school year are: Northeast Intermediate and Sierra Middle School in Parker, Trailblazer Elementary in Highlands Ranchand Castle Rock Middle School. In addition, a change made by the school district in how money is distributed among its schools 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, are more expensive to hire. Each school in the district sets its own budget based on the funds that are available each year. What lies ahead? The district continues to look for more money for school programs and increases in teacher pay, DCSD spokesman Randy Barber said. “We’re waiting to see what the state budget is in a few weeks and hoping we can meet more needs at the school level,” Barber said. However, concerns about money are unlikely to dissipate. “We have buildings that need help in terms of capital investment,” Barber said. “We have programs we want

to make sure stay strong for students. And, we know that there’s growth on the horizon, and we want to make sure we’re prepared for that.” The Douglas County community rejected 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-for-performance for teachers. In 2008, voters defeated 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. District officials and school board members have broached the subject of a new tax request in recent months with the timeline gravitating toward a 2018 ballot measure. Said Wise: “We need to engage our Douglas County community with the financial challenges of the school district and the value of a quality school district.”

Elizabeth, Parker Task Force awarded $10,000 Parks and Wildlife grants support deer management, parks programs

B C s e

BY TOM SKELLEY TSKELLEY@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

A new Colorado Parks and Wildlife program recently awarded two grants totaling more than $10,000 to the town of Elizabeth and the Parker Task Force for programs to manage the deer population and help low-income families enjoy the outdoors. A bow hunting program designed to control the deer population in Elizabeth was awarded $9,415, while the Parker Task Force was granted $700 to begin a pilot program to provide families with backpacks of supplies and day passes to Castlewood Canyon State Park. “This is the first year of us doing anything that looks like this,” said CPW program director Emily Orbanek. The grants came from CPW’s Director’s Innovation Fund, a new mechanism by Great Outdoors Colorado to identify and support pilot, “small-dollar” programs that might otherwise be overlooked. GOCO, a branch of CPW, was created by voters through a 1992 amendment to the Colorado Constitution. Elizabeth’s deer management program, now in its second year, has been credited with reducing strain on town services like roadkill cleanup, as well as reducing motorists’ collisions with the animals. According to CPW, one in four Douglas County residents have reported hitting a deer with their vehicle at some time. The program has also led to the donation of more than 1,100 pounds of venison to area food banks. The grant given to the task force is intended to kickstart the Nature Pass program, with the goal of helping 100 families experience the outdoors. Families are given park passes and

Bigfoot fans come to Colorado to make their case Event raises money for youth mission trip, spreads Sasquatch awareness

WHO, OR WHAT, IS BIGFOOT? The legendary creature Bigfoot, known by various names such as Sasquatch and Yeti, is an unknown species caught somewhere between myth and science.

BY JESSICA GIBBS JGIBBS@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

It may have been April Fools day but Bigfoot researchers who recently visited Castle Rock to display their evidence supporting the legendary creature’s existence weren’t kidding. Bigfoot isn’t just real, they said. He’s out there — and in numbers. About 80 people gathered at the First United Methodist Church in Castle Rock to hear the group’s case on April 1. At the front of the sanctuary were two tables. One held mostly books about Bigfoot, Sasquatch, Yeti, or however he may be known. The other offered more tangible proof. Castings of purported Sasquatch footprints and knuckle impressions captivated audience members before presentations began. When researchers took the stage, they walked the crowd through personal experiences and accounts of people they say come to them for help. For one church member, Jason Frank, also a member of the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization, the journey began 10 years ago. Frank discovered a set of large, peculiar footprints while turkey hunting near Cripple Creek. “I didn’t know what to do with it,” he told the crowd April 1. So he called a man from academia who he’d seen on TV. Evidence of Sasquatch Jeff Meldrum, a professor of anatomy and anthropology at Idaho State University, connected Frank with a Colorado researcher. Frank has since changed from a man hunting turkeys to a man hunting for clues about the elusive Bigfoot. Frank and his fellow researchers take frequent and extended camping trips searching for Sasquatch, often in the Steamboat Springs area and throughout southern Colorado. For Mark Taylor, also a Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization member, the work has largely consisted of helping a Pueblo family explain strange behavior in and around their ranch. The activity has gone on for years,

Reportedly a bipedal primate, the animal is suspected to average between 7 and 8 feet tall and weigh hundreds of pounds. Sasquatch researchers describe them as nocturnal, elusive creatures

he told audience members. One ranch owner, who grew up on the ranch, told researchers she saw a Sasquatch on their land as a young girl. Today, her grandchildren say they sometimes see a large creature peering through the home’s windows at night. Among other sightings, the family also finds large footprints along the river near their home. Footprints are the key for Meldrum, whose research focuses on the evolution of bipedalism in early hominids and humans. More simply put, he studies how people evolved into two-legged walking creatures. “When it comes to footprints, I’m an anatomist,” he said. He looks for where toes are jointed and the show of movement throughout a step in footprints. There’s a difference between tracks left by a living foot and a stiff wood foot, he said. A faculty member at Idaho State since 1993, he fell into Sasquatch hunting in 1996 after discovering footprints in Washington measuring about 15 inches in length. There were skin ridge patterns in the mud. Pressure ridges,

that prefer isolation. They may travel in family groups or alone, and survive as omnivores favoring covered or wooded areas. Eyewitness accounts span across North America, as well as across the globe. Photographic and video evidence claiming to document Sasquatch sightings is limited and often disputed.

The most acclaimed documentation of a sighting is the Patterson-Gimlin film shot in 1967. The short film shows a two-legged, ape-like creature walking across the frame and briefly glancing back at the camera. The film, although often criticized, has never been debunked. Source: The Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization

tension cracks and dragging were all consistent with live tracks, he said. “These clearly weren’t made by somebody strapping on a pair of fake feet and stomping through the mud,” he said. “I am convinced —I do think that these creatures exist.” He estimated the animal may have been 7 feet tall and weighing near 400 pounds. Today, he’s amassed approximately 300 castings of Sasquatch footprints from across the globe in his lab. Satiating curiosity Sasquatch researchers still debate whether Bigfoot is more ape-like or human-like, he said. Their descent is also unknown. Perhaps they are relics of the early hominids, perhaps not. These are merely some of the answers researchers like Frank and Taylor hope to answer. Proceeds from the event at First United Methodist Church will benefit a youth mission trip hosted by the church, but the “Squatch Talk” drew more than the philanthropic. Fellow Bigfoot enthusiasts came in support, as well as those who said they couldn’t contain their curiosity. Julie Curran said she believes it’s possible the myths are true, and is a fan of the show “Finding Bigfoot” aired on Animal Planet, on which Meldrum has appeared. “I’m fascinated with the subject,” she said. Her friend Randy Howell, however, remains a skeptic. “I’ve not seen or heard anything tonight that would be concrete proof,” he said. “Seems like a lot of speculation and perspective.”

Parker Pals offers support to locals with MS Group meets monthly at Arapahoe Community College BY TOM SKELLEY TSKELLEY@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Parker Pals started meeting nearly 20 years ago to offer people with multiple sclerosis a chance to share their experiences and give each other support. Just don’t call them a “support group.” “A support group is led by a professional who gets paid,” says Kathie Spies, Parker Pals’ leader. “A selfhelp group is led by a volunteer, someone with MS.” The self-help group meets monthly at Arapahoe Community College in Parker to socialize, organize involvement in fundraisers like the annual MS Walk and provide informational workshops with medical providers. Members share their expertise on symptom management, relationship and work-related issues, and other topics unique to their experience. One thing they don’t do is whine. “We don’t spend our time feeling sorry for ourselves,” says member and Parker resident Judy McCarthy, diagnosed with MS in 2002. “We don’t put Kleenex out on the table so people can cry,” Spies adds. There were four or five regular members when Spies joined in 2001. Since she took the helm soon after, the group has expanded to about 45 members from Parker, Castle Rock, Centennial and Aurora, ranging in age from mid-20s to 85. One of the benefits of the members’ diverse ages and backgrounds, Spies says, is the wisdom older members share with their younger counterparts. People newly diagnosed with MS are understandably scared, and meeting others who’ve gone through the same experience offers comfort and reassurance. “There’s just a wealth of information available to a new person,” she says. “For a young mom with kids at home, they see an 85-year-old who’s

WHAT IS MS? Multiple sclerosis is a disease affecting the central nervous system, but symptoms vary from person to person, making it difficult to diagnose. Most people affected by the disease are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50 years old, including 11,000 people in Colorado and Wyoming alone. One in 500 Coloradans has MS, and 73 percent of those diagnosed are women. Symptoms include: • Problems with balance and walking • Fatigue • Visual impairment • Vertigo and dizziness • Tremors • Cognitive and sensory issues For more information on MS or assistance offered by the National MS Society, go to cureMSco-wy.org or call 800-344-4867.

Knee Arthritis Pain: One HUGE Mistake And Two “Smart Moves”

Doctor’s Simple Advice Gets Rave Reviews By Patients Lucky Enough To Give It A Try By Matt Edgar America’s Health Writer Denver - Have you been told that exercise will help your knee arthritis pain? Well... has it helped? If it hasn’t, one local doctor has a very good reason why. Not only that - he says if you are trying to exercise with knee arthritis - you might be making a HUGE mistake. Sounds crazy? Yes it does. In fact, I thought it was a ridiculous thing to say. That is until I talked to some of his patients who gave him rave reviews. Many said he completely changed their life. When they first came to the office, their knee arthritis pain was so bad they could barely walk and were scheduled for total knee replacement surgery. In a relatively short period of time, they cancelled surgery and are enjoying their lives again. Why is exercising a HUGE mistake and what does this doctor recommend that is helping so many knee arthritis sufferers who come to see them from all over the state? Double Edged Sword The doctor says that exercising with knee arthritis is a double edged sword. It is true, your knee joints need motion to be healthy. And lack of motion can be very detrimental. Without motion joints become “sick.” And in

theory exercising should help knee arthritis. But here is the BIG problem: Knee arthritis is condition that dries up the lubricating fluids in your knee. It also changes the joint surface and creates bone spurs. Because of these changes - exercising on an arthritic knee can cause more swelling, more pain and more arthritic changes. Imagine driving your car without any oil. What happens? The engine parts scrape together and wear out. You can’t simply drive your car more and make it better. And in many cases - you simply can’t just exercise your knee and make it better, either. What’s the answer? In a car it’s simple - put in more oil. And then make sure the oil level is correct and it is changed when necessary. With your knee joints - it is a little more complicated. The major lubricating fluid in your knee joint is called synovial fluid. Synovial fluid is the fluid that “dries up” when you suffer with arthritis. But there is good news: Now doctors can inject one of the building blocks of synovial fluid directly into your knee joint. This building block of synovial fluid is called hyaluronic acid. And when hyaluronic acid is injected directly into the knee joint, many ex-

help.

Making Knee Arthritis Pain Worse: Research has discovered that people are suffering with arthritis much younger than expected. Making the right treatment choices now can possibly stop the progression and eliminate the pain.

perts believe it helps lubricate the joint. Some say it is like squirting oil on a rusty door hinge. This allows the knee joint to glide more smoothly and often reduces or even eliminates pain. And here is the most important part: Now that the joint is lubricated and can move with less or no pain specific exercises can be a tremendous

That’s why the doctors (when patients qualify) treat knee arthritis patients with hyaluronic acid injections FIRST and then prescribe a very specific rehabilitation and exercise program specially developed to help knee arthritis pain. This comprehensive knee arthritis pain program is called, “P.A.C.E.” and has been getting wonderful results. So what is the HUGE mistake? If you suffer with knee arthritis and are exercising and the pain is either not getting better - or getting worse you may be making a mistake. You may actually be making things worse. And that’s the last thing you want to do. What are the two “smart moves?” If you have knee arthritis pain, look into viscosupplementation with hyaluronic acid. In many cases treatment with hyaluronic acid followed by a specific rehabilitation or exercise program can get results when everything else has failed. In fact, it is not uncommon to get pain relief just from the hyaluronic acid treatments alone - without doing any rehabilitation or exercising at all. And the results can be dramatic. If you are thinking about giving hyaluronic acid treatments a try - this is VERY IMPORTANT: In our opinion the doctor you choose should use advanced imaging technol-

ogy such as uoroscopy to guide the injections and make sure the hyaluronic acid goes where it is supposed to. Laser guided digital imaging is one of the best technologies to guide injections. Research shows that without uoroscopy, doctors miss the joint space up to 30% of the time. Obviously, if the joint space is missed - the treatment cannot work. If you have already had viscosupplementaion without this advanced imaging technology and it did not work - you may want to give it another try with a doctor who uses this cutting edge technique to get the best results possible. So, if you suffer with knee arthritis pain, talk to a specialist about viscosupplementation with hyaluronic acid especially if exercise is not working or making things worse. And make sure the doctor you choose works in a state-of-the-art medical facility and uses advanced uoroscopic imaging (Like laser guided digital imaging) to guide the injections to make sure the treatments have the best chance to work. For more information on viscosupplementation for knee arthritis or to get a free screening to see if this treatment is right for you, one of the specialists at Osteo Relief Institute can be reached at 303-952-4469.

Knee Pain Treatment Craze In Denver

After thousands already helped knee pain sufferers face 48 hour cut off to get risk free screening for incredibly popular treatment (ORI) - The clock is ticking. There is only 48 hours to go. If you suffer with knee arthritis pain and would like to get a risk free knee pain screening to see if the experts at Osteo Relief Institute in Greenwood Village, CO can help you with their extremely popular knee pain relief program - read this right now. Here is why: For the past several years, the experts at Osteo Relief Institute have been literally swarmed with knee arthritis sufferers looking for relief. Nearly all these knee pain sufferers chose Osteo Relief for one reason - their top-notch knee pain relief program featuring viscosupplementation with hyaluronic acid and specially designed rehabilitation program. The Secret To Success? The experts at Osteo Relief Institute believe one of the biggest reasons for their success is the fact that they have some of the best technology money can buy. Laser Guided Digital Imaging The clinic uses extremely advanced imaging equipment that allows them to see directly into the knee joint that they are treating. This advanced imaging is called, “Laser Guided Digital Imaging” and many experts believe is the difference between success and failure with this knee pain treatment. And probably the best thing about this technology is that it has allowed the experts at Osteo Relief Institute to get results with knee pain when so many others have failed. What Is This Treatment? This treatment is viscosupplementation with hyaluronic acid (HA). Those are big medical terms that basically means this... When you have knee arthritis the lubricating fluid (synovial fluid) in

your knee joint dries up. This means instead of gliding smoothly - your bones start to rub and grind against each other. This causes a little pain in the beginning - but over time the pain steadily gets worse until it is excruciating. Hyaluronic acid works so well because it is like “joint oil.” It is a natural substance and is one of the natural building blocks of the synovial fluid that lubricates your knee. Scientists and researchers discovered this natural building block to synovial fluid in the rooster’s comb that big red thing on top of the roosters head. It is extracted from the roosters comb, purified and concentrated. When it is injected directly into your knee joint, it is like squirting oil on a rusty door hinge. Hyaluronic acid allows your joints to glide more smoothly eliminating a lot of the rubbing, grinding and pain. Why You Should Try This Even If You’ve Already Had Similar Treatments Without results... “We have been able to help so many knee pain sufferers - even many who have already tried other injections like Synvisc, Supartz, Orthovisc and even Hyalgan. We use special and very advanced low-dose videofluoroscopy imaging called “Hologic Digital Imaging” so we can see right into the joint. This allows us to put the Hyalgan exactly where it needs to be. Studies show doctors doing joint injections without fluoroscopy miss the joint up to 30% of the time.” said the director of Arthritis Treatment at Osteo Relief Institute. Osteo Relief Institute is a state of the art medical facility offering only the best technology. And that’s not all - Osteo Relief Institute has a complete knee relief

program called “P.A.C.E.” to make sure you get the most pain relief and the best possible results from treatment. “Every case is individual. Some patients get quite a bit of relief right away - others take a little more time. But most have been extremely happy and the results usually last for at least 6 months. Patients who were suffering for years with bad knee pain are getting their lives back... going for walks again and exercising. It’s amazing to see. They tell all their friends - that’s why we are swarmed. I can’t tell you how many patients have cancelled their total knee replacement surgeries.” added one of the doctors. How To Get It If you have knee pain, the doctors and staff would like to invite you for a risk free screening to see if you are a candidate for Hyalgan treatments and

Research Shows Doctors Miss The Joint Space About 30% Of The Time Without Advance Imaging

I bought my Highlands Ranch home in 1993, when it was under construction. By then, Packing and Moving was my middle name. I had lived in 11 houses and seven apartments. There was some good in moving when I was younger, because my accommodations kept

Neither is driving a rental truck (1975) from Goleta, California, across the desert to Mesa, Arizona, when you don’t really know how to double-shift, and it sounds like it whenever you try. I arrived in Denver on a Thursday in 1977, had a faculty meeting on Friday, found an apartment on Saturday, moved in on Sunday, and started teaching on Monday. I couldn’t do that now, and I don’t know how I did it then. A column in another paper titled “How to say good-bye to a house” started all of this.

I don’t want to say good-bye to my house. But someday I won’t have a choice, if I can no longer climb the stairs. The builder didn’t do us any favors. The ground settled, and so did driveways and porches. The cheap-o sump pump exploded. The basement flooded. The cheap-o dishwasher exploded. The hardwood flooring was ruined.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Schools should be top priority Earlier this year, principals at middle and high schools in the Douglas County School District were blindsided by sudden budget cuts which will directly impact students this fall. Despite outcry from the community resulting in a slight reinvestment, many schools are still facing the inability to maintain basic levels of educational support. Multiple schools have announced staff cuts, class size increases and curriculum losses. Shockingly, upper administrators were granted salary raises

and retention bonuses one day prior to these budget cuts being handed down. Furthermore, DCSD administrative departments are budgeted for $18.5 million more than they spent two years ago, not including special education. With nearly all DCSD students attending a neighborhood secondary school at some point during their education, we need to do better by our kids in this school district by funding schools first and foremost, making them a priority over upper administration.

What’s on the horizon for Colorado’s seniors?

first heard Jim Riesberg, a representative of the Strategic Action Planning Group on Aging, speak at a Denver Senior Coalition meeting and I was LIVING & blown away by the AGING WELL information he shared. I was also inspired to learn more. How had I never heard of this, I asked myself. He told us how the group got started in 2015, its members appointed by Gov. Katy Carpenter John Hickenlooper after a legislative bill (House Bill 15-1033) was passed to study the positive and negative impacts of Colorado’s aging demographics. He went on to share many different statistics regarding the ag-

ing population in Colorado, as well as the true purpose of the group. When SAPGA first formed, their initial considerations were to determine what it means to age well, to measure how well challenges were being met in the various Colorado communities and trying to determine future adjustments based on ever changing needs. The group also realized that there is a larger purpose, to reframe how we all view aging. Instead of thinking that growing older is a negative thing for any of us, SAPGA is looking to promote moving forward with a positive light. “Aging is a gift,” says Jim, “A continual process of growth and learning, and nobody should be defined by their age.” SAPGA also wants to find ways to help people change their habits, to maintain good health and modify behavior, therefore saving the fu-

T

he rags-to-riches ideal is a distinctly American value. No matter who you are, every American has the room to rise with hard work, a GUEST competitive spirit, and a good idea. COLUMN This is the fabric of our national mindset, the rhetoric in our classrooms and business deals. It seems like everything is possible and in reach, until the government steps in with its red tape and rules. Jim Smallwood A maze of frustrating legislation is an economy-strangling hazard. I recently met with a small business owner in Castle Rock, Dr. Adam Graves. He owns Colorado Natural Medicine and Acupuncture, and he is living his dream of practicing medicine. His business is fulfilling his calling, creating jobs, and helping others. Chatting with business owners like Dr. Graves fortifies my motivation to fight overbearing government regulations and taxes so that the American Dream remains more than a dream for people like Dr. Graves who are pursuing the kind of dream that supports American growth and prosperity. I am proud to announce that the bill I put together along with Rep. Mike Foote and Attorney General Cynthia Coffman, HB17-1048, was signed into law this month. This bill fights for our American dream by extending the statute of limitations for prosecuting insurance fraud so that it begins when the crime is discovered, not committed. This gives victims

adequate time to take action. Furthermore, I am thrilled that last week the bill HB17-1052, which I sponsored along with Rep. Susan Beckman, was signed into law. Our children are the future of our nation and state, and we must make space, time and money for their well-being and opportunities. HB17-1052 brings into focus the allocation formula that is used to administer services associated with child welfare. Essentially, this bill distills the process from the distant, less personal state government to the local county governments that can survey their own people and better determine the most effective formula for making sure welfare dollars go to those that need it without waste or inefficient, unnecessary obstacles. The upcoming weeks will be spent rigorously preparing for the “Long Bill” (the state budget). Our Colorado Constitution states that we must balance the budget every year, and doing so promotes careful attention to the way we spend our money in this state. We take our responsibility seriously here at the Capitol, and want to determine the superlative way to budget our state funds. Thank you to all who have reached out to me with feedback and input. I’m here to represent and fight for our conservative principles in order to preserve the freedom and opportunity that we want for ourselves, our children, and our grandchildren.

ture by creating fulfilling lifestyles — living better as we all live longer. They found many outstanding resources available throughout the regions, but they also realized there is a disconnect in collaboration and coordination between the services themselves and the people they are trying to serve. What that says to them is this: Colorado leaders must act now to ensure that Colorado continues to be a great place to live, a place that meets the needs of all its residents no matter their age, a place that allows each of us to thrive and a place that is fully connected. I got the chance to speak with Jim on the phone and ask him some questions. He has been working in the senior field since 1992. Jim is extremely passionate about SAPGA and promoting the bill itself. He shared with me that HB 15-1033

came about due to different groups such as AARP, Denver Regional Council of Government and the Colorado Department of Human Services discussing issues pertinent to people over 55. State Sen. Ray Scott was integral in getting the bill passed, which in turn allowed SAPGA’s formation. He explained that they are currently in the process of getting the word out about the group on radio stations, meeting with state representatives and hiring an administrator to lead the process. Eventually, they will hold town hall meetings. SAPGA meets regularly, exploring opportunities and planning out steps the governor, state and local elected officials, business and education leaders, and all of us can take to ensure a vital quality of life SEE AGING, P15

Where are you going?” Mike told his son that it would be a quick trip to Atlanta and he would be back in a couple of days. Mike’s son came over to him and hugged him, told him he loved him, and that he would see him in a couple of days. Now this may seem appropriate and very normal for many of us, and in my heart of hearts I hope that open displays of love and affection are more common for all of you than the rare exception. But anyone who has raised children through the teenage years understands that sometimes they begin to move from wanting to hold hands and hugging to becoming a little less demonstrative in their love for us.

How many times, though, do we have the best of intentions to stop long enough to hug our friends or families and let them know just how much we love them and appreciate them.

So to my fellow busy travelers and my fellow busy parents, and my fellow busy co-workers, associates, and partners, let’s make a commitment to our families and friends that when we part ways,

So how about you? Are you so busy, too busy, to stop and say a proper goodbye or goodnight?

of reducing Medicare payments to hospitals. In fact, hospital payment cuts were the single largest funding source for Obamacare’s costly expansions. These cuts came at a cost, with several smaller community and rural hospitals around the nation having to either close their doors or drastically reduce services. Now, with Obamacare on the chopping block, these cuts need to be repealed as well. Restoration of this funding is

critical to helping rural hospitals continue to care for uninsured, lowincome, disabled and elderly citizens. As it stands, current Medicare payments cover less than 90 percent of the cost of care. This is unsustainable, especially for rural hospitals which do not have the resources or patient caseload to make up that difference. The bottom line is that if the federal government does not restore the Medicare reimbursement payments, rural hospitals will be faced with either cutting back critical services or closing their doors. The impact that this would have on these communities cannot be overstated. Rural hospitals are often the sole

provider of many crucial medical services, including emergency care for entire rural regions. Having to transport patients to urban facilities risks lives, increases costs and takes emergency medical technicians miles out of their jurisdictions. Moreover, hospitals serve as an economic hub for many rural communities, providing jobs and contributing to the local economy. Shutting the doors of these facilities is not any different than a local mine, factory or some other vital local industry closing down. Without a swift repeal of these Medicare cuts, Colorado hospitals stand to lose more than $3.2 billion over the next year. These are dollars

LIFE

Find the answers to life’s stress tests Stress is normal. It’s how you handle it that’s important

Cori Barker, sitting, practices Thai massage on one of his instructors about two years ago when he was attending the Berkana Institute of Massage Therapy. Barker, 32, worked for an engineering firm for four years after graduating from the Colorado School of Mines, but realized he wasn’t leading a healthy lifestyle — this prompted him to become a massage therapist, and he opened Reworks Massage (and Tech) on 16th Street Mall last fall.

BY CHRISTY STEADMAN CSTEADMAN@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

A

fter Cori Barker earned his degree from the Colorado School of Mines, he landed a job with an engineering firm. He enjoyed the job, but the work was stressful, often finding it difficult to meet a client’s expectations. And his off time was filled with monotonous routine — a PB&J sandwich for a quick dinner, and some TV or video games to unwind a bit before bed. Barker lived this way for four years — poor diet, lack of sleep and little exercise. Admittedly, he did not allow time for self-care. “I didn’t have the maturity to value my personal health,” Barker, 32, said. “But I couldn’t imagine a different lifestyle.” The one thing he did do for himself, both as a student and engineering professional, was get a massage about once a year to help relax. And this is what led him to the path he is on today — a massage therapist living a content and mindful lifestyle. Having some degree of stress is normal — and not all stress is bad, health experts agree. But too much stress can lead to common illnesses because of a compromised immune system or more serious diagnoses of anxiety or depression. “Stressors can really knock us out of our normal routine,” said Tripti Sharma, a therapist who teaches a mental health first aid class at Community Reach Center, a nonprofit that provides mental health care and other health services at multiple sites throughout Adams County. “How you handle it is what’s important.” Shannon Gwash, director of wellness programs and services for Jefferson Center for Mental Health, says the term “eustress” refers to what mental health experts consider positive, healthy stress. It can be thought of as a motivator because that kind of stress keeps people working toward a goal or pushes a person to excel. Distress — the stress associated with being stressed out — is when life starts to become too overwhelming, Gwash said. There is no definitive threshold between the two, Gwash said, because people have different triggers that can cause distress. However, to distinguish between the two, Gwash suggests asking this question: Are you progressing toward that goal, or are you falling behind because you’re taking on too much? “It’s hard to take a step back,” Gwash said, “but it’s necessary.” In addition, stress can be situational

or chronic, Sharma said. Situational can include a death in the family to a big test coming up. Chronic stress is generally ongoing and long-term. For example, it could be environmental, such as living in an abusive home. For most people, the best way to handle stress, Gwash said, is to recognize and acknowledge when you’re taking on too much. “Everyone gets stressed out, but it’s not always because of the same things,” she said. “Be aware of what works for you. Sometimes, too busy is not good. It’s good for us to have downtime, and it’s good for us to have those healthy boundaries.”

MORE TIPS TO MANAGE STRESS Here are a few more tips to manage stress: • Stay connected to your social network. Allot time to spend with friends and loved ones. • Ask for help when life becomes overwhelming. Seek advice from clinicians or others you trust. • Maintain a positive outlook. Don’t get caught up by the negative effects of something that didn’t go exactly as planned. • Help another person manage his stress. • Make time to enjoy favorite leisure activi-

ties. Join a class or program offered through community resources, such as the library or rec center. • Go outside — being outside allows a person to take in nature’s smells and calming sounds. • Break things down into smaller, more manageable steps.

‘People are going to get wet and dirty’ Horse rescue hosts fundraiser at Colorado Horse Park

IF YOU GO Where: Colorado Horse Park, 7522 S. Pinery Drive, Parker 80134 When: 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., April 22

BY TOM SKELLEY TSKELLEY@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Fundraising fun runs are nothing new, as participants in events like Muckfest and “Tough Mudder” competitions can attest. Obstacle courses are designed to test runners’ endurance and athleticism, usually involving a lot of dirt and sweat. On April 22, the Colorado Horse Park will add a twist, challenging humans to take on obstacles, water jumps and terrain designed for horses. “The idea is to get people of all ages out there to see the athleticism of horses, who have to traverse these obstacles, sometimes with a 150-pound person on their back,” said Andrea Mena, a volunteer with horse rescue Drifter’s Hearts of Hope. The nonprofit horse rescue in Franktown is sponsoring its first “Run to the Rescue” at the equine park, featuring Denver Broncos cheerleaders, door prizes, yoga classes, vendors and a 5K all-ages run on the park’s equestrian racecourse. The ranch began almost three years ago, when Parker resident Jean Kirshner brought her daughter to an Elbert County ranch to get to know Drifter, a horse rescued from a holding pen in Fort Collins by her friend Jacqui Avis. Drifter’s next stop would have been a slaughterhouse in Mexico. Kirshner’s daughter Bella, who has cerebral palsy, began grooming and riding Drifter, mucking his stall and taking him to the veterinarian. She helped bring the horse back

to health, and working with Drifter brought out a different side of her. “This was the first time I saw Bella with a purpose,” Kirshner said. Bella and her friends began baking horse treats and selling them to raise money for

horse charities. Sitting in at one of the baking parties, Avis got the idea for her and the Kirshners to rescue horses on their own. Three years later, Drifter’s Hearts of Hope has expanded to the King of Hearts Ranch in Franktown, buying

horses, most on their way to slaughter, and rehabilitating them for adoption. About 20 volunteers give their time at the ranch each week, watering, exercising and cleaning up after about 40 horses on any given day. Avis estimates they adopt-

ed 80 horses last year — and it wasn’t cheap. “It’s expensive to run this place,” Avis said. “Between feeding and vets and training, it adds up.” Mena came up with the idea for the event as a way to compete for a $25,000 grant from the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA). Each year, the organization recognizes groups that generate community involvement for its annual “Help a Horse Day.” Avis said she hopes turnout is good enough for the ASPCA to take notice — $25,000 buys a lot of hay. So far, Mena said response from the community has been positive and she’s expecting a good turnout from the “horse hub” in the Parker area. “The equine community in Parker is massive,” she said. “It’s such a worthwhile cause, that’s why I think people are responding.” Avis and Mena are expecting between 150 to 200 people, most of whom will hopefully bring a change of clothes. “People are going to get wet and dirty,” Avis said.

Ballet company joins with band to examine nation’s divisions Wonderbound, Flobots stage shows in three area venues

IF YOU GO “DIVISIONS” will be performed at three metro area venues: • 7:30 p.m. April 14-15 and 2 p.m. April 16 at 2 p.m. at the Performing Arts Complex at Pinnacle Charter School, 1001 W. 84th Ave., Federal Heights (tickets: 303-292-4700, wonderbound.com)

BY SONYA ELLINGBOE SELLINGBOE@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

“Divisions,” is a new production by Wonderbound contemporary ballet company and nationally known hip-hop band the Flobots — both involved in community activism through the arts. It will play in three metro Denver venues between April 14 and 30. Choreographer Garrett Ammons and his wife, Dawn Fay, began with the company in Denver in 2007, then called Ballet Nouveau, now called Wonderbound. They have made a practice of collaborating with other artists. “With our country more divided than ever, it’s important to come together through art,” Wonderbound says. “This production is inspired by how art has impacted great revolutions in history and costuming will be based on clothing worn by revolutionaries through time.” Ammons, known for his ability to work with other artistic groups, including Paper Bird, poet Michael J. Henry, illusionist Professor Phelyx, DeVotchka’s Tom Haggerty and musician Ian Cooke, has teamed this

• 7:30 p.m. April 22 and 2 p.m. April 23 at PACE Center, 20000 Pikes Peak Ave., Parker (tickets: 303-805-6800, parkerarts.org) • 7:30 p.m. April 29, 2 p.m. April 30 at the Newman Center for Performing Arts, 2344 E. Iliff Ave., Denver, at the University of Denver (303871-6200, newmancenterpresents.com)

Wonderbound dancers swirl around Flobot singers Jamie Laurie and Stephen Brackett at a rehearsal for “Divisions,” which will run in April at the Performing Arts Complex at Pinnacle Charter School, PACE Center and The Newman Center. AMANDA TIPTON year with Flobots lead singer Jamie “Jonny 5” Laurie and the band, as they were also completing a new album following several years of effort. “Our job is all the more important as social conflict increases,” said Ammons. The new Flobots album, “NOENEMIES,” is due on May 5 and the

dance portion of the production was created from the new music. The album includes the voices of a gospel choir and intends to give listeners a sense of hope. “We hope `Divisions’ is a thoughtful and compelling look into the soul of a nation stirring with unresolved questions — What are we mobilizing for? Who are we mobilizing against? Why are we

scared of each other? As more and more people take to the streets, these questions are more vital now than ever,” Laurie said. The socially active band started Youth on Record, which, with help from working musicians, trains at-risk students to develop career skills while staying in school. They work from a new studio located in the Mariposa community in Denver, with support from the Boettcher Foundation. Performances will be at the Performing Arts Complex at Pinnacle Charter School in north Denver, at Parker’s PACE and at the Newman Center for the Performing Arts, between April 14 and 30.

Theater classic ‘Evita’ coming to Lone Tree Arts Center stage BY SONYA ELLINGBOE SELLINGBOE@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

With its sung-through narrative and distinctive Latin-based score, “Evita” by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice demands “very specific vocal and musical restraints — a really excellent singer,” said Gina Rattan, director of the musical that will command Lone Tree Arts Center’s main stage from April 12 (preview) to April 29. We spoke on March 16, first day of rehearsal, after her flight from New York City was delayed a day by weather. The lead actress “must inhabit the character,” Rattan continued, explaining that she and choreographer Sarah O’Gleby flew out to Denver for auditions, in addition to attending New York auditions. “There are a lot of moving parts.” We spoke on the afternoon of March 16, first day of rehearsal. Rattan said

IF YOU GO “EVITA” runs from April 12-29 (preview April 12) at Lone Tree Arts Center, 10075 Commons St., Lone Tree. Tickets: $35-$70. Check availability online: LoneTreeArtsCenter.org, for desired date and time, or call the box office, 720-509-1000. (Monday-Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.) the cast had seen a design presentation, heard about historic context, viewed a set model and costume concepts. “With a musical, everyone has to learn (the music) … The first day is devoted to music learning.” In 2014, Rattan and O’Gleby visited Argentina and found that Eva Peron’s presence and legacy are still prevalent. “Eva and Juan Peron are credited with giving a voice to the working class — in hospitals, labor unions, orphanages.” “Evita” is one of Rattan’s favorite shows. “The complicated protagonist is female … she’s not oversimplified, she

presents a real person,” Rattan said. “It’s a very political show, but it doesn’t play out like a history lesson. All the characters are so passionate and involved in the politics of the show. And that’s not exaggerated — the people of Argentina are really like that! “We hired the musicians here,” she said, adding that the lead singer, local actor Laura Shealy, is an accomplished vocalist. New York actors will play the male leads: Miles Jacoby (Che) and Jesse Sharp (Juan Peron). Experienced director Rattan directed the second national tour of “Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella” and was associate director of that show on Broadway, as well as associate director of “Matilda, the Musical” and “Billy Elliott” on Broadway. This is her first time working at Lone Tree, she said. “It’s a great experience, with the whole team very professional. What’s really unique are the fascinating charac-

STAFF REPORT

Denver Zoo, coordinating with zoos across the country, has successfully bred a rare species of bird, the kea. Denver zookeepers are hand-raising the hatchling, Scarlet, at the zoo’s avian propagation center and she is expected to make a public debut soon. The kea (pronounced KEE-yah) can be found in the mountains of New Zealand and BY are oneELLINGBOE of the few alpine SONYA species of parrot in the world. In North SELLINGBOE@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM America, 38 keas live in 11 zoos, and “Welcome to the secret world of mathematicians … Mathematicians play. They come up with interesting questions and investigate possible solutions,” say authors Rebecca Rapoport and J.A. Yoder about their recently published book, “Math Lab,” which presents shapes, puzzles and games and invites hands-on participation. “Math Lab” — which is aimed at 6- to 10-year-olds who may want to develop “skills in math, science, engineering, writing and well, life” — has numerous exercises that only require items available around the house: toothpicks, gumdrops, paper (assorted colors), string, pencil, tape … and, of course, a curious kid with a bit of parental assistance, when needed. Along the way, an interesting vocabulary will grow: octahedron, dodecahedron, Mobius, parabola, fractal — and one can learn the ancient game of Nim. The book grew out of an afterschool STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math) center the authors helped to build. Illustrations are colorful and projects are clearly explained, step by step. It would definitely be best to begin at the beginning and work up to the more complex shapes later, no matter how swell they look — followed by puzzles and games. With colored chalk, a broom and string, one can draw giant circles and ellipses on a sidewalk or driveway — and perhaps create a game or grand design. With a needle and colored thread, one can stitch parabolas into elaborate stars. With colored paper, scissors, ruler and a triangle template you have made previously, you can build a complex Sierpinski Triangle.

Book is designed for kids from age 6 through 10

the breeding of the birds is coordinated through a species survival plan. Scarlet’s mother came from a zoo in Seattle and her father came from a zoo in Philadelphia. Scarlet is the first-ever successful hatching of the species for Denver Zoo, and zookeepers intend to place her back with her parents when she is older, according to a news release. The species is thought to be in decline, the release stated, with an estimated world population between 3,000 and 5,000.

“Math Lab for Kids” by Rebecca

Rapoport and J.A. Yoder is recently published in a series of science-oriented books of projects and experiments kids can do with stuff they can find at home.

At the back of the book, there is also a pattern for Tangrams, which can offer endless diversion. With each lab is a section of instructions, colorful illustration and, sometimes, a “Think About It” phrase and/or a related activity. A 6-year-old will almost certainly need a patient assistant, while an older child, with adequate motor skills, will be able to follow directions leading to some really sophisticated and beautiful shapes — both flat and three-dimensional — as well as a collection of new games to share with friends. The authors express the thought early on that “Real math is so much more about curiosity and experimentation than most people realize.” Some additional resources and their website are included as well, as kids learn to play with math. “Math Lab” is a large, sturdy trade paperback book, published by Quarto Publishing’s Quarry Books division.

are those who walk the streets and interact with attendees. This year’s auditions, which are not capping the number of open roles, will look for a fresh approach from actors. “We’re just always looking for people who have new ideas, new character ideas,” Bryan said.

Will panel dig idea of boys volleyball?

B

Heritage catcher Casey Opitz is a switch hitter, which could benefit him as he moves on because it could keep him in the lineup longer. Coaches sometimes pinch hit for a right-handed hitting catcher. Opitz started switch hitting when he was a youngster and can face either a right-handed or left-handed pitcher. JIM BENTON

Catchers must keep firm grip on game Position demands mental toughness, strong rapport with pitchers BY JIM BENTON JBENTON@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

The position of catcher is not easy on the body. Players take their lumps with foul tips, flung bats and plays at home plate with a base runner charging toward them. And, of course, there’s the squatting catchers must do, keeping their knees bent with torso low to the ground to receive pitches. But sometimes, the hardest part of being a catcher has nothing to do with blocking a ball in the dirt, throwing out a runner trying to steal a base or catching a foul ball.

It’s the mental side of the game. Catchers have to be leaders — and sometimes, psychologists for their teammates on the mound. “The toughest thing about catching is the pitchers,” Lakewood senior catcher Casey O’Neill said. “Everyone is different and you have to handle each one differently. Oh, for sure, you have to be a psychologist. “Some guys, you have to go out there and tell them jokes, some guys you have to tell them they’re all right, and some guys you have to go out there and tell them straight that they are (playing poorly).” Mountain Vista coach Ron Quintana, a former catcher, said catchers need to be intelligent and able to immerse themselves in the game. “For any catcher, whether it’s high school or college, you are always looking for someone who is

going to be a leader, very vocal,” he said. “So you are looking for someone who can make good choices and good decisions.” Heritage senior Casey Opitz, who has signed to play at the University of Arkansas, is one of the area’s top catchers. But even he says controlling what others do on the diamond is often difficult. “You pretty much have to know where everybody has to go before they do,” he said. “That’s the hardest part. When it gets to the seventh inning, runner on third, blocking the ball is just instinct stuff, stuff you work on. But the mental stuff is probably the hardest part.” Some high school catchers can call which pitches the player on the mound throws — and Opitz is one of them. “It’s basically a mind game,” SEE CATCHERS, P32

STANDOUT PERFORMERS Jamie Tatum, soccer, junior, Rock Canyon: She accounted for half the Jaguars’ scoring with three goals in the 6-1 win over Douglas County on March 30. Casey Optiz, baseball, senior, Heritage; He went 3-for-3, drove in two runs, scored a run and stole a base in the

Eagles’ 12-4 triumph over Sunset of Portland, Oregon. Katherine Stanley, soccer, junior, ThunderRidge: She scored the overtime goal that gave the Grizzles a 1-0 win over rival Mountain Vista on March 28. Colin Munro, lacrosse, senior, Mountain

Vista: He tallied three goals and added two assists in the Golden Eagles’ 14-3 victory over Rock Canyon on March 28. Aubree Martinez, soccer, sophomore, Chaparral: In the Wolverines’ 6-1 win over Castle View on March 30, Martinez scored twice and had an assist.

STANDOUT PERFORMERS are five athletes named from south metro area high schools. Preference is given to those making their debut on the list. To nominate an athlete,

oys volleyball, currently a club sport, is set to serve up another attempt to the Colorado High School Activities Association to sanction the sport. The CHSAA Equity Committee didn’t endorse sanctioning boys volleyball during its JanuOVERTIME ary meeting, but the Colorado Boys High School Volleyball Association will make another bid to become a sanctioned sport at the April 20 Legislative Council meeting. One of the fears of adding another boys sport is that schools could become Jim Benton out of compliance with Title IX. The federal law passed in 1972 mandates equal opportunities for sports participation for male and female athletes. “This is the third time it’s been up for vote and of all the times before I believe this has the best chance,” CBHSVA president Mike Prusinowski said. “It all comes down to the Legislative Council vote. If the Equity Committee would have said yes, I would have been extremely sure we would have the votes. Now, I am hopeful for them.” The Equity Committee ruling is a barricade but not a full veto. CHSAA bylaws require the Legislative Council to weight the Equity Committee’s recommendation in their decision-making process. In a CHSAA survey last November, 258 schools responded and 93 — or 36 percent — said they would start a boys volleyball team. Another 107 schools support sanctioning boys volleyball, though they wouldn’t initially field a team. Overall, about 55 percent of schools said they could add boys volleyball and maintain compliance with Title IX. “It’s not an equity issue and they can’t make it one because 143 schools have said they could maintain compliance,” said CBHSVA board member Scott Siegfried, a representative for Cherry Creek. “The next question CHSAA asks is do we have officials? The president of the officials association of Colorado said we have plenty of officials. Then it becomes a money issue, and the fact the gyms, the nets, the balls already exist… I’ve been working hard to reach the $40,000 mark that I will donate to CHSAA through private donors. So, in essence, the first season could be free. “We have a good case. I think I’ve answered every question single question anybody would ask so I feel good about that but this is a democratic process, people can vote and that will be what it is.” There are 50 club teams this season in the CBHSVA, with 600 participants playing in 3A and 5A. The clubs are co-op teams, with players coming from around the school districts. For instance, Cherry Creek has five teams, two 5A and three 3A, with players coming from all district schools.

Opitz said. “You play chess with the hitter. You have to know what pitches are working for that pitcher that day, you’ve got to know what the hitter is not seeing well, and kind of mixing those two. Then when he comes up the second time, he’ll kind of be guessing a little bit because of what he saw the first at-bat, then you have to throw the opposite of what he’s thinking.” Optiz’s teammate, standout junior pitcher Riley Egloff, appreciates the input from his catcher. “I love when a catcher comes up to you and knocks some sense into you or tells you that you need to get your head straight,” Egloff said. “Once there is someone to come out and calm you down, it’s great.” Northglenn coach Cameron Tall-

April 6, 2017A man pitched at the University of Northern Colorado and also knows the value of a good catcher. “You have to have trust in your catcher to throw the right pitch, do the right things and be able to throw a ball in the dirt and be comfortable and trust that he will block the ball,” he said. Westminster’s Miguel Palos, one of the top catchers in the East Metro League, said it’s important to be able to calm a pitcher down and tell him to throw strikes. That just comes with the terrain behind home plate. “You are part of the whole game,” Palos said. “You’re the leader of the whole game.” The ultimate impact of a top-notch catcher can often be seen in a pitcher’s statistics, Heritage coach Scott Hormann said. “A great catcher,” he said, “makes a mediocre pitcher great.”

LANDSCAPING FROM PAGE 4

A way to give back On March 25, Jason and Jeannine Sakry, who own and operate J.S. Enterprises Professional Custom Landscaping, surprised the Vines family with a free landscaping makeover. It’s part of their newly started program called Landscaping for Vets. Jason and Jeannine have operated their business for 12 years, working mostly in the Larkspur and Castle Rock areas. In the last year, the couple leveraged their landscaping expertise as a way to help others. They specifically sought to make veterans feel appreciated. “It was just a way to give back to them to let them know what they do doesn’t go unnoticed,” Jason said. In December, Jason and Jeannine called for the public to nominate veterans throughout the Front Range, promising a free, full-service landscaping makeover to the winner. They accepted nominations in January and February, of which they

James Vines, pictured with wife Stephany Vines, accepts a free landscaping makeover from the Landscaping for Vets program. SEAN HAKES received about 60, Jason said. A public vote narrowed down the top 10 to the top six candidates. A selection panel — all veterans and

including the likes of 18th Judicial District Attorney George Brauchler — chose the winner from those six. “They were all worthy,” Jason said,

calling the selection a tough decision. Jeannine described surprising to the winners, James and Stephany, as an amazing feeling. “To see their reaction and how much it really meant to them,” she said. “You don’t even really know until you do it.” And when it comes to the landscaping, they’re not skimping on the perks. “We wanted to be very clear that as easy as that would be,” Jason said, “we wanted to go above and beyond. We wanted to treat it as though somebody was paying us to do this.” Designs for the Vines project, and those in the future, will include features such as built-in barbecues, fire pits, coy ponds and custom landscaping — all funded by Jason, Jeannine and their company. “You name it,” Jason said. “These are the highest dollar things involved in landscaping.” For Vines, the program is an important reminder that veterans are cared for. “When I was actually in the Army we never thought much of our day to day,” he said. “But just seeing something like this, you know, it’s for real that people actually care.”
