New rules for downtown developers in the works

Town code does not currently require that downtown developers provide parking BY JESSICA GIBBS JGIBBS@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Castle Rock Town Council has given initial approval to a new ordinance that would require developers to provide parking with their downtown projects. Currently, town code does not require any parking with downtown development. The downtown overlay district is bordered on the west by Interstate 25 and the railroad to the east, and spans from the Plum Creek corridor on the south to the Wolfensberger interchange on the north. The proposal is to require one parking spot per residential unit built within that area. “Development teams can always go above that minimum standard,” said development services director Bill Detweiler. Different requirements would be put in place for commercial developments. North of South Street, which staff determined has a more urban feel, developers would be required to provide one space for every 500 square feet of development, although

the first 2,000 square feet would be exempt. Also exempt are remodeling projects. The southern half of the overlay district has a more suburban feel, Detweiler said. There, developers would be required to provide one spot for every 200 square feet of commercial space. The director of development services could make exceptions for development projects in two circumstances. The first would be if a site design was too restrictive to meet the new town code, and the second would be if a developer paid the town $10,000, which would be put toward downtown parking improvements. Councilmember George Teal voted in favor of the ordinance on first reading May 1 but not before saying he had reservations about the proposal, particularly whether one space per unit would be sufficient. Detweiler said some developers, including those behind the mixeduse Riverwalk project, have provided parking despite not being required to and future developers would likely do so as well in order to attract residents. Councilmember Jason Bower said for now, the ordinance is “more than enough.” “It’s certainly a big step,” he said, “from zero.”

CHRIS HAUGEN

New president of White Construction Group works to restore Castle Rock ranch About me I was born in Fairplay, so I claim Colorado Native status. My parents moved from Dillon to Michigan when I was 2. I grew up in a small farm town outside of Ann Arbor, that actually reminds me a lot of Castle Rock. I moved to Colorado as soon as I graduated college. My wife, Rachel, and I started a family pretty young and have been married 21 years this month. I was 23 when my first son, Cedar, was born. My second son, Ike, just finished his freshman year at Grand Canyon University in Phoenix. My third son, Ole, will be a sophomore at Castle View this next year and my daughter, Annabell, will be heading to Castle Rock Middle as an eighth-grader. Why I got into the construction industry My dad is the one who really got me interested in construction. He’s a landscape architect, but really enjoyed building things and also was interested in historic architecture. When I was in high school, we salvaged an oak timber-framed barn that was going to be torn down for a development in Ann Arbor. We took it apart piece by piece and then re-built it at my parent’s farm. To this day, that is one of my favorite building experiences. I went to Wheaton College in Illinois, where I received a BS in geology. When I came out of school, the mining and oil industry was in pretty bad shape, so I went to University of Michigan and got a teaching degree. I met my wife Rachel, a Littleton girl, and, as soon as I graduated from

Michigan, I moved to Colorado to marry her. Because I grew up doing construction, I went to work as a carpenter for what was then Ash & White Construction Much like today, Colorado was in the midst of a construction boom cycle. Tim White, the founder, heard I was looking for another job and if I would be interested in becoming a project manager and estimator. I jumped at the chance and, after a few years living in Denver and commuting to Castle Rock, Tim convinced me to take over the estimating department and move to Castle Rock so I could spend less time in traffic and more time with my family. Castle Rock seemed like a great place to raise a young family, so from 2002 until 2014, we lived in Castlewood Canyon. At the end of 2014, we found a little ranch on Wolfensberger Road that we bought and have slowly been bringing back to life. Why I love my job I’ve been with White now for over 21 years. My favorite part is the opportunity that people are given here. If you work hard, take risks, continue to learn and develop, doors open for you. We are also deeply focused on community and understand that, as builders and developers, we can help shape the world around us. We don’t take that responsibility lightly. Outside of work, I… If I’m not watching kids play soccer or there is no snow in the mountains, I’m working on my ranch. I call it my 30-year project because it was in such rough shape when we bought it. There are seven buildings on the property and they all need work. So, when I’m not building at work, I’m building at home. My advice Learn to speak and write well, then, do what you love.

Escape room offers thrill-seeking fun Castle Rock’s Epic Escape Game tests players’ problem-solving skills BY JESSICA GIBBS JGIBBS@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Just past 7 p.m. on a recent Friday evening in Castle Rock, a group of six people finds themselves locked in a room. With the click of the door, the three couples fan through the room, opening drawers, looking under tables and piling any object they can grab on a table. They’re surrounded by swords, shields, weathered wood furniture and books written in medieval script. They need a clue, any hint at how to get out. Then on a monitor with a countingdown clock, one pops on screen. The group unanimously pauses from scavenging the chamber and turns to reads the sentence. With that, they’re on their way to escaping. Sitting in a nearby, private room on the sending end of that message was Lucas Wojtalewicz. He is a “clue master” on staff at Epic Escape Game in Castle Rock, just one of the popular escape rooms popping up in Colorado and across the country. Castle Rock resident Langford Jordan and his wife, Carol, opened Epic Escape Game, 611 N. Wilcox St., last October. It’s one of 11 locations in the country from the Denver-based company. When Langford pitched the idea of opening an escape room, Carol said, she thought it was a far-off, one-day kind of dream. Langford said they should do it within a few months. Despite her surprise, Carol got on board. So he left behind his career in engineering and leadership building, tired of constant travel and time away from family. Escape rooms have grown in popularity over recent years, providing thrill-seekers an opportunity to step out of reality and into imaginary, high-stakes scenarios where the best chance at survival is a person’s own wit. “I love games, and in my previous jobs I did a ton of leadership, team development,” Langford said. Some customers are merely there for fun, but they also get corporate offices bringing employees in for teambuilding excercises, he said. The Jordans and their staff designed all games available at the Castle Rock escape room. They started with a storyline, designed the sets, gathered props and brought their vision to life through five unique rooms. There’s The Quest, which draws inspiration from The Hobbit and takes players through the Middle Realm to battle an evil wizard. In the Red Planet, participants are space travelers whose ship was struck by a meteor shower. They emergency land on Mars, where the goal is to repair the ship and return home. Or,

In one of the five games available at Castle Rock’s escape room called The Quest, players can travel to The Middle Realm and battle an evil wizard. be stuck on Mars forever. In Dinner at the Manor, guests of a dubious science mogul find themselves locked in a room after visiting his home under the guise of a dinner party invitation. Happy Campers challenges players to escape a bear plundering their campsite who’s trapped them in their RV — to which they’ve lost the keys. An in the newest game added this March, players of Super Powers strive to rescue super heroes from a radioactive-weapon-wielding villain. “People like creepy, Langford said. Each game is a series of on-theme puzzles and riddles that people must solve to ultimately find their way out.

“Clue Masters” at the Epic Escape Game in Castle Rock oversee and help players at the escape room from a control room. They can see and hear players, offering hints if needed. Players can also call into the control room for help if they’re stumped during the game. They’re given one hour. Clues cost them five minutes. While games are underway, “clue masters” work from a control room where they can see and hear the players in each room. When the players get stuck, they can phone into the control room to ask for help. Clue masters can send hints to them in real time. The games vary in difficulty. In the Red Planet, less than 20 percent of people successfully escape. In fact, it’s closer to 14 percent, said manager Lois Comstock. The 19-year-old has worked for the Jordans full-time since they

opened the game room. “Usually people get in here with about 10 minutes left,” Comstock said of the final room in the Red Planet. “If they’re lucky.” If the success rate dips below 10 percent, they adjust a game to make it less challenging, Comstock and Langford said. Overall, Langford said he hopes the escape room is providing creative entertainment for the community. “I thought Castle Rock,” Langford said, “could use something that was fun.”

Student stress can spike in May Transition time heightens anxiety for some, experts say

mary support group.,” Laux said. Running beneath student stress is the undercurrent of social mediainduced anxieties, Perry said. “Social media is a rough beast to battle with,” Perry said. “It can give outsized impressions of issues: It can make it look like everyone’s life is perfect, and on the flip side, it can make it look like everyone’s on drugs.”

BY DAVID GILBERT DGILBERT@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Remember the feeling of freedom on the last day of school? Not every student feels it. Children’s mental health care providers see a spike in visits from teens in May, said Emily Laux, a licensed clinical psychologist at Children’s Hospital in Denver. She said while correlation doesn’t necessarily equal causation, she sees the transition from the school year to summer as a shock to the system of some kids. “Times of big transition carry additional stress,” Laux said. “For most kids the transition to summer is something that’s fun and exciting, but for others they’re losing connection to where they’ve spent the last eight months. For those who aren’t driving yet or aren’t as independent, they might feel disconnected from friends or activities or teachers who are important to them.” End-of-the-year academic pressures can weigh on kids too, Laux said, particularly in an age of increasing demands on children’s time and school performance. “There’s an adult element that society in general needs to look at: What are we expecting of kids and is it reasonable?” Laux said. “Might there be negative impacts of a highperforming, high-pressure society?” Symptoms of stress End-of-the-school-year stresses can manifest many different ways, Laux said. “We often see a reduction in distress tolerance,” Laux said. “We see an increase in worry and anxiety, or maybe a refusal to attend school, increased isolation, or even self-harm.” Younger kids might lash out more by throwing tantrums, while older kids are more likely to internalize their distress, Laux said. Kids experiencing end-of-the-year stress would do well to engage their support networks, Laux said, and

Children’s mental health care providers say students’ mental health can take a dive in May, as end-of-the-school-year stresses weigh on them. DAVID GILBERT might benefit from adult guidance in breaking down what might feel like insurmountable problems like heavy workloads. Structured activities can be a blessing or a curse, she said. “Keep activities that bring pleasure and joy,” Laux said. “For instance, softball might be incredibly important, if it adds something to a kid’s week and gives them an outlet and (a way to) stay connected. But think about reducing some unnecessary ones. Kids tend to be involved in a lot of activities. It’s worth taking a look at which of those are necessary and important and which can be let go.” Parents are vital for responding to end-of-the-year stress, Laux said. “Keep channels of communication as open as possible,” Laux said. “Be open and available so your kids can come to you. You can put feelers out: you might say, ‘I remember in high school that wrapping up high school can be stressful. How are you managing that?’ Even if they don’t respond in the moment, it plants a seed that you’ll hear them out. If kid says they’re in crisis, be mindful of your own reaction in that situation. A kid disclosing that going to be hypervigilant for your response. Be supportive, empathetic, but pragmatic.” Time frame not firm Stress spikes among kids can hap-

pen even earlier than the end of the school year, said Christine Casey Perry, the district mental health resource coordinator for Littleton Public Schools. “We see our spikes in mental health crises in October and April,” Perry said. “People tend to link the October spike to the decrease in daylight. My own theory is that for those in school environments, the shine of the new school year has worn off. Maybe they’re struggling in classes, and it’s still too far from the finish line to be hopeful. The same in the spring: There’s SATs, prom, and the finality of the end of the year looming.” May is a breeze for Ashlynn Moore, a junior at Littleton High School. “This is the least stressful part of the school year,” Moore said. “All I have to worry about is finals. I don’t worry about much else.” Moore said her stress peaked in April, when her anxiety over performing well on the SATs left her sleepdeprived for days on end. “I was obsessed with getting a good score because that’s what colleges care about,” Moore said. “I had to retake the test because I did so poorly. I lost focus because I was so tired, and I was trying to make that up with energy drinks.” Moore’s experience isn’t uncommon, Laux said, nor is her coping method: hanging out with friends. “Peers tend to become teens’ pri-

More than a statistic Mental health is hard to quantify, with numbers perhaps telling only a partial story. Suicide interventions — which mean only that a mental health provider was worried enough to ask a student if they were considering suicide, not that the student made a suicide attempt — are up sharply at Littleton schools this year, jumping from roughly 200 at this time last year to roughly 300 this year. Again, Perry said, correlation doesn’t necessarily equal causation, and the spike might simply be due to more kids being comfortable seeking mental health care. Still, Perry said young folks today have more on their minds. “This is a more anxious and stressed-out generation,” Perry said. “The impacts of being interconnected digitally but not in real life is having impacts on students.” Schools are stepping up their game when it comes to addressing mental health issues, Perry said. Littleton, for instance, now plays host to a studentled effort called Sources of Strength, which reaches out to kids showing signs of struggling, and works to promote a culture of support and resilience, Perry said. The focus on mental health issues can obscure the reality that the majority of kids are getting by just fine, Perry said. “There’s a narrative that all kids are struggling,” Perry said. “There’s been some increase, but the majority of kids are doing OK. When we look at our surveys, our students scored really high feeling safe and comfortable at school.” Moore, the high school junior, said she’s looking forward to the end of the school year. “I’m good now,” Moore said. “The SATs are done.”

Castle Pines North Metro District ballot issue on water fails District’s request for $49 million debt would have funded renewable water plan BY JESSICA GIBBS JGIBBS@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Residents of the Castle Pines North Metropolitan District voted down a ballot measure May 8 that

would have authorized the metro district to take on $49 million in debt, with a repayment cost of $103 million, aimed at funding its renewable-water plan. The special district established in 1984 provides water, wastewater and stormwater services and oversees 352 acres of open space. The district serves more than 3,200 residential and business customers, according to the CPNMD website. The debt was intended to financially support the district’s renewable water plan. Previous board of

directors have set a goal of achieving 50 percent renewable water and in February directors approved asking voters for the $49 million. Unofficial results available May 8 showed 2,434 votes of no and 1,017 votes of yes on the issue. The district would have used the money to participate in the expansion of a water treatment plant at Centennial Water and Sanitation District in Highlands Ranch and support constructing storage facilities to capture agriculture water rights the district owns.

The debt would have been paid for in part through property taxes by raising the district’s mill levy to an annual maximum of 11.45 mills. Voters also elected four new board directors May 8, said District Manager Jim Nikkel, so it’s unclear what the plan will be moving forward until the new directors are able to address the renewable-water plan. “Our long-term goal was to get to 50 percent renewable,” Nikkel said. “I don’t know what the plan is today.”

Inspection of water devices to take months Water director says there’s no evidence devices in question have caused fires BY JESSICA GIBBS JGIBBS@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Following an April 17 fire that destroyed two homes in Castle Rock and killed two pet dogs, the town announced it would begin inspecting 5,300 water-meter reading devices, one of which was located near the source of the April blaze. The town maintained the move was in an abundance of caution, that the fire was still under investigation and a cause had yet to be determined. The company that makes the devices, Sensus, has been linked to

fires before. Media reports largely in 2014 show Sensus electric utility smart meter devices were uninstalled in Oregon and investigations were called in Nevada, in two examples, after some smart meters allegedly malfunctioned and in rare cases caught fire. Water director Mark Marlowe said the products that made headlines in years past are not the same as what Castle Rock is inspecting. Those smart systems were hooked up to buildings’ electrical systems, Marlowe said. The products Castle Rock uses are battery-powered, remote reading devices. They allow utility employees to read water meters remotely from their vehicles as they drive past homes, which Marlowe says saves time and is a more efficient method. “Totally different product,” Marlowe said. “We have not been able to

Castle Rock Chamber elects new chairman

find any evidence that these units have ever been implicated in a fire.” He says the town consulted with the manufacturer and brought in an outside consultant, Sellon Forensics Inc., in weighing the decision to inspect devices. Sensus products have been used in Castle Rock for 20 years with no issue, according to a town news release announcing the inspections, and the town is one of about 14,000 providers nationwide using Sensus products, Marlowe said. The model Castle Rock is inspecting was installed in 2015. About 15,000 older models are used throughout town but are no longer manufactured. The town has replaced them as they stop working, Marlowe said. Battery life lasts about 20 years. During the ongoing inspection,

town staff will look for any evidence of tampering, damage and conduct communication tests to see if the 5,300 devices are functioning properly. They’ll also watch for fire hazards such as nearby landscaping with flammable vegetation or clutter near the devices. A juniper shrub was planted near the device involved in the April 17 fire, also near a gas meter. Residents are advised to keep the 3to 6-foot area near any utility equipment clear. Homeowners will be notified if devices on their property are inspected. Marlowe anticipated the inspection process to take three to six months. The town had not announced any updates to the April 17 fire investigation as of May 8. “This is really us being proactive,” Marlowe said.

‘I’m a dreamer who believes in a chance to succeed’ Douglas County library graduates first GED class BY TABATHA STEWART TSTEWART@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Eight-year-old Johnny Jenkins, and his brother J’Reece, 7, spent Sunday afternoon at the Douglas County Library in Parker. They weren’t there browsing the bookshelves or looking to check out the latest video game. They were there to watch their mother, Kiama, receive her high school diploma. Jenkins, 27, who lives in the Pinery, left high school when she got pregnant with Johnny, and has spent the last 10 years working and raising her boys. Thanks to Douglas County Library’s Career Online High School program, Jenkins finally earned her diploma and is planning to attend the commu-

nity college. “This feels good,” said Jenkins, who chose a black cap and gown for the ceremony. “I never thought I could get my diploma. But now that I have kids I want them to make good choices.” Jenkins was one of four graduates recognized at the ceremony, which was attended by dozens of friends and family members in the conference room at the library. Tiffany Curtin, adult literary specialist for Douglas County Libraries who oversees the program, praised the graduates for their hard work and recognized several tutors who helped them. “Family and friends, you helped make it happen for them,” said Curtin. “This is a great achievement, and I’m so proud of everyone here today.” Each graduate had a specific reason for utilizing the program, and shared their stories with the crowd.

Mountain Vista students help provide habitat for bats Youths work with Cherokee Ranch and Castle to create shelter boxes BY ALEX DEWIND ADEWIND@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Students at Mountain Vista High School have partnered with the Cherokee Ranch and Castle, a historic structure that sits atop a hill west of Daniels Park, to help protect important but often overlooked animals: bats. “The best part was collaborating with the ranch and being able to hang outside for a day instead of in a classroom,” Ben Yoshida, a junior at Mountain Vista, said at a May 1 presentation at the ranch and castle, at 6113 Daniels Park Road in Sedalia. Lori Schwendema’s advanced placement science class brainstormed the idea after Roots & Shoots, a program founded by Jane Goodall in 1991. The goal is for today’s youths to study and find solutions to environmental issues. When exploring options, the Cherokee Ranch and Castle was the perfect fit, those involved in the project say. In 1996, the property’s then owner, Mildred Montague Genevieve Kimball, also known as “Tweet,” protected 3,400 acres of surrounding land through a conservation easement. The pristine property that overlooks rolling green hills and the Rocky Mountains is now a wildlife sanctuary, home to elk, deer, turkey, cattle and bats. Bats kill insects and help regulate ecosystems, said Jeannine Colley, education coordinator at the Cherokee Ranch & Castle Foundation. But they need a place to live. Without one, they make do in roofs, attics and sheds, according to Colorado Parks and Wildlife.

“Sometimes they invade existing structures. By giving the bats a place to live, we help them stay off human radar.” Jeannine Colley Education coordinator

“Sometimes they invade existing structures,” Colley said. “By giving the bats a place to live, we help them stay off human radar.” Mountain Vista students spent a day at the ranch, constructing 12 black wooden boxes with a small hole in the bottom and tiny ridges along the inside for the bats to grasp onto. The boxes required 4,000 slabs of wood, which four volunteers at the ranch cut, and each box had 84 screws. Eight of the boxes have been attached to tall wooden poles throughout the property. Raised in Parker, Schwendema has had a fascination with the ranch and castle since she was a child, she said. In January, her class toured the castle, sparking excitement for the project. “I had driven past this castle a million times and thought, I want to go there someday,” said Schwendema. Colley foresees a lasting partnership with Mountain Vista High School. Ideas for future projects include studying wildlife and sustainable ranching or designing a recycling program. “This is the beginning of a pretty exciting collaboration,” said Colley.

Castle Rock photographer Connie Rudd will exhibit her photograph “Whispered Passage of Time” in the Gilpin County Arts Association Show in Central City. COURTESY PHOTO

Castle Rock photographer has work in juried show STAFF REPORT

Castle Rock photographer Connie Rudd was selected by Jurist David Muench to exhibit her work in the oldest and longest running juried art show in Colorado. Rudd’s photograph, “Whispered Passage of Time “ will join dozens of other two and three dimension artists in the Gilpin County Arts Association Show in Central City. Housed in the historic Washing Hall in downtown Central City, the art show opens May 25 and runs through Aug.10. “The historic structure is an unusual gallery space,” Rudd said in a news release, “and lends itself to a wonderful art experience.” The opening reception and awards ceremony is June 2, from 5-7 p.m. Best of Show, Awards of Merit and Honorable Mention selections will be awarded.

Muench is a landscape photographer who crossed paths many times with Ansel Adams. Both photographers regard the environment as something sacred and not to be ruined. Rudd’s photo will exhibit as a 20-by30-inch print, mounted on wood and framed. Like all art in the Gilpin Arts Association Show, it will be for sale. “It is one of my favorite images of the Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park,” Rudd said in the release. “It was sunset on June 20, the Summer Solstice. Fires to west had drifted their smoke into the western end of the canyon, and as the sun dipped toward the horizon, the haze fractured the light `just right’, and I was there to record the moment. “The image just draws your imagination down in to the abyss.” Rudd exhibits at The Emporium, 200 S. Perry St., Castle Rock and this image is available for sale there.

GED

ABOUT THE GED PROGRAM Douglas County Libraries launched the Career Online High School and GED prep program in fall 2017 to provide an accredited online high school diploma and career certification program for adults ages 19 and older. The program allows students to complete the courses on their own schedule and at their own pace. A six- to 18-month commitment to the program is required, depending on previously earned high school credits.

I think now it would drive me to distraction. On each side of the truck it said “Good Humor.” I think I have a good sense of humor.

I found out what humor was, or what it was thought to be, when I was in grade school by watching television. These were a few of my choices: Jackie Gleason, Milton Berle and Lucille Ball. For reasons I could explain if this were a comedy dissertation, I rejected all of them. Along came a curiosity named Ernie Kovacs and I brightened somewhat. Kovacs was off-center, and his humor was constructed piece by piece, not thrown at me in a predictable punch. I haven’t watched situation comedies in 40 years. I will admit, however,

comedy clubs and White House Correspondents’ Dinners. No more stand-up for Craig. I am too old for Michelle Wolf ’s humor. I was too old for it when I was her age (32). I can’t remember the first time I saw Don Rickles on Carson, but I know I wasn’t crazy about him. He’d pick at every scab, and then wind up by saying it was all just a joke, and he loved everyone. Joan Rivers did the same thing, but she never said it was all just a joke, or that she loved everyone. Maybe you remember celebrity roasts? I thought they were imbecilic. Now they’re so raunchy they only appear on cable. My father never told a joke in his

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Enough about teacher pay No, Douglas County property owners should not pay higher taxes for teachers. The recent article “Poll finds most Americans think teachers are underpaid” written by the Associated Press and printed in this paper asserts “Americans overwhelmingly believe teachers don’t make enough money.” The AP article’s interpretation of the poll, taken during the recent teacher strikes, sides with teachers and advocates their agenda with quotes such as “to educate children

ne of the greatest pieces of advice that I ever received came from a great friend and mentor earlier in my life. He actually gave me two pieces of advice wrapped up in one life-changing conversation. The two were so connected that even today I consider these words of wisWINNING dom a tremendous WORDS part of any success that I have experienced in my life. I have been paying this forward and have passed along this advice to those whom I know, those whom I work with, and those whom I coach and mentor. Michael Norton And now I want to share it with you, too. The first part is to be diligent in keeping a record of each accomplishment, award, or time that I had been recognized in any way. He told me to buy a binder and keep it handy. My mentor had shared this with me immediately after I had been recognized as the Salesperson of the Month for the first time. He told me that even though there would be only one plaque on my wall and one certificate in my binder, he was confident that over time I would be filling multiple binders and taking up plenty of wall

space too. Twenty-nine years later I am grateful for his confidence in me and for his advice. I say that because I did fill up my binder and other binders with many awards and recognitions, letters of accomplishment, letters and emails provided as a testimonial or reference. Now I am not sharing this with you to brag on myself, I am really bragging on my mentor and the advice and guidance he gave me, because the second part of his advice is where he made all the difference in my life and contributed to my future successes. You see, the second part of the advice is built on the saying that, “Success begets success.” He encouraged me to review my past achievements regularly as a way to continue to believe that I can do great things. The idea was not to get caught up in relying on my past successes, as we know that we are only as good as our last record. And it also wasn’t about someone asking me, “So what have you done for me lately?” No, it’s not about that at all, it’s about you and me, and asking ourselves, “What else is still left inside of me?” Asking ourselves, “What have I done for myself lately?” Throughout my career I have experienced exhilarating wins, and I have suffered crushing losses.

This can put pressure on pension funds and Social Security. Most fixed income sources have little or no cost of living increases.

Teachers don’t start out in the college of education expecting to make high salaries. I know because I married one.

Teachers by nature are risk averse and seek the security they find with labor unions and unabashed claims of righteousness defending what’s best for their children.

If you are forced to stay put in your two-story house and bring in help, the supply and demand once again drives up the price of care providers available to meet your needs. This is definitely an age group that is supporting the economy as they pay for more goods and services needed to provide for an aging population. Investors and companies can capitalize on new inventions designed to keep you young, active and healthy. As you age, more services are needed from house painting to lawn services and eventually elder care. It will be fascinating to watch what new innovations will be available on anything from self-driving cars to same-day dentures. There is an opportunity for products that allow you to age in place, such as stair climbers, walk-in tubs and meal delivery. This is in addition to health care facilities and retirement communities that are popping up in every zip code. Consumers demand services and products, which in turn impacts how businesses adapt to compete in the areas needed by the current population. We watched the baby boomers impact products and business on everything from Gerber baby food to McDonald’s restaurants as they approached their teenage years. Next it was minivans and mini-mansions.

This gives him invaluable insight and understanding into the growth, land use and private property rights issues in our county. Laydon has served on the executive board of the Douglas County Republicans, he is a former first vice-chair and treasurer.

Plane crash in northern Douglas County leaves one dead Authorities say aircraft made a ‘high-speed impact’ with the ground

The engine of an SR22 plane that crashed around 8:30 May 11, was propelled several yards and embedded into a home nearby the crash site just west of the Stepping Stone neighborhood.

STAFF REPORT

One person was killed after a small plane crashed in a residential area of northern Douglas County, east of I-25, the night of May 11. The Douglas County Coroner’s Office identified the pilot of the plane as Robert D. Marquis, 67, of Glade Park, which is west of Grand Junction. He was flying solo. The plane, a Cirrus SR22, went down near RidgeGate Parkway and Pastel Point, an area between Lone Tree and Parker, just west of the Stepping Stone neighborhood.

thought it was over at Ridge Gate,” said Bland. “Then all of a sudden, I heard a loud thump, and it sounded like all the air was being let out of a big vacuum. I didn’t really think it could be a plane, because we have so many coming over here that it didn’t seem possible.” The crash, which South Metro Fire Rescue described as a “high-speed impact,” threw a chunk of the engine,

approximately 3 feet long, into the side of a home several hundred yards away, where it was embedded several inches between two windows. None of the neighborhood’s residents were injured. “I don’t know if the pilot was trying to miss the houses, but we were so lucky,” said Bland. “It’s only a couple hundred yards from hitting all of these houses.” The plane had recently taken off from nearby Centennial Airport, according to authorities. Personnel from South Metro, the Lone Tree Police Department, the Douglas County Sheriff ’s Office, the Parker Police Department, Centennial Airport and the National Transportation Safety Board were on scene after the crash, according to a City of Lone Tree spokeswoman. The Cirrus SR22 has a wingspan of about 38 feet and is 26 feet in length, according to cirrusaircraft.com.

LIFE ADVICE FOR COSPLAY

Comic Con

Advice for the event, cosplaying and collecting BY CLARKE READER CREADER@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

For first-timers or the uninitiated in the world of comic conventions, Denver’s annual Comic Con can be an intimidating experience. The sprawling event, which is June 15-17 this year, brings upward of 100,000 nerds, cosplayers and collectors into the Colorado Convention Center for fun, exploration and connection. “There’s a sense of community that comes with these kinds of events, because everyone shares the same passions,” said Tara Hubner, marketing and communications manager with Pop Culture Classroom, which puts on the con every year. “For a lot of people, this is the only time they get to see some of these people, so it’s like a big SEE COMIC, P27

• One of the best parts about Comic Con is seeing the truly exceptional cosplay work so many people are capable of creating. There are the expected super heroes and science fiction leads, but there’s always more than a few surprises. Don’t be shy to ask to take a photo with a particular favorite — most are very friendly and willing to pose. • At the Comic Con website, there are guidelines for what cosplayers are and are not allowed to wear and bring in as props. Hubner said cosplayers need to be covered enough that there’s no risk of “wardrobe malfunctions” and said that as a general rule, if a person isn’t sure about a certain prop or outfit, it’s better to leave it at home. • Littleton’s Reinke Brothers Halloween Costume and Superstore is a great place for cosplayers of all skill levels to suit up, especially as it’s one of the few costume stores open year-round. “We have the latest and greatest costumes, parts and pieces to make a great outfit,” said Greg “Shof” Shofner, general manager of the store, located at 5663 S. Prince St. “Comic Con gives us a great boost every year, and we start our ordering in January to make sure we have enough of all the costumes.” Over the years, the store has built up relationships with reputable manufacturers, so all the costumes they sell are properly licensed. • A big key to the success of many cosplay outfits is the makeup and prosthetics, and Reinke has experts in those areas as well to help provide that movie quality look. • As Shofner tells it, the key is to get started working on outfits as soon as possible, in case there need to be last-minute alterations.

BASICS TO KNOW

• It’s downtown Denver, so parking is always going to be tricky and potentially expensive, Hubner said. Pop Culture’s recommendation is to park farther away and take a Lyft or Uber, or take the light rail, since there is a stop right at the convention center. That same weekend PrideFest and the Denver BBQ Festival will be happening, so expect downtown to be extra busy. • With attendance last year topping about 115,000 people, attendees should be prepared for lines and waiting at the June 15-17 event. June 16, a Saturday, will be the busiest day, so Friday or Sunday would be a good day to visit to deal with fewer people. “The schedule for the con will be announced about two weeks out, and we

encourage people to take a look at it and get a game plan, so they don’t lose time wandering,” Hubner said. “We advise attendees to wear comfortable shoes, brings snacks and water to help them.” • The vast majority of the artists and authors who will be speaking are available for photos and autographs for free, but when it comes to major celebrities, there’s more to consider. Tickets to those events can be bought in advance or at the event, but fans should be prepared for lines. According to Hubner, lines for photo ops or autographs can take 30 minutes to an hour. “We recommend people go to the celebrity summit first thing and get a sense of the times when their celebrity will be making an appearance,” she said. “Then get there early if you don’t want to

spend a lot of time waiting.” • There are plenty of ATMS around the center, but using them usually requires more waiting in lines, so bring cash if possible. • Consider staying after hours. A fun part of the con is all the new people that attendees meet, and there are several after-party events available to keep the good times going. • One of the biggest piece of advice Hubner has is to not be intimidated. There will be volunteers spread all over the con who will be more than willing to answer questions and provide guidance. “We’re a very welcoming place, and there’s always someone willing to help,” she said. “We want everyone to have a good time while they’re here.”

Young actress isn’t just going through a stage

N

ot many people are lucky enough to know what they do with their lives by the time they reach important milestones like graduating from high school. So, I’m not sure if there’s a name for how lucky 10-year-old Arvadan Payton Maynard is — she’s known she wanted to act since she was 2 years old. “When I was 2, COMING my mom started ATTRACTIONS noticing I was really good at memorizing stuff, and could do it quickly,” she said. “That was kind of the start, and by the time I was 6, we started looking for an agency.” In the ensuing years Maynard has Clarke Reader worked in several independent films and was recently cast as one of the leads in a new mystery and science fiction TV series called “Frozen Dead” about cryogenics that is filming in Nederland. And she recently took to the stage for the first time in the role of the Young Queen Elizabeth II in Aurora’s Vintage Theatre’s production of “The Audience.” “What I like about the theater is you can react to the audience and they can react to you. When you’re doing film or TV, you don’t get that connection,” she said. “It’s been my favorite acting experience yet. I think it has so much potential to make me grow as actress and person.” As someone who has been acting locally for so much of her life, Maynard has seen more film and TV opportunities become available in the metro area, but still not as many as places like Los Angeles and New York City. “Last summer got to be an extra in a feature film called ‘Unmarked,’ and now this TV series,” she said. “We’ll be continuing work on it through the summer and will start shopping it around in August. I do have a five-year commitment if it gets picked up.” As to what Maynard’s future holds, in addition to acting she loves dance, so she wants to continue her studies in the fields of dance, drama and acting, and may even consider teaching at the Doral Academy in Westminster — the school she currently attends. “When I get on the stage, I get to leave the past behind and make a new future for myself,” she said. “I want the chance to inspire other kids to do what they love and be what they want to be.” SEE READER, P27

Parker gallery offers intriguing look at fiber art “Autumnal Equinox” by Aurora fiber artist Diana Vander Does hangs just inside the entrance into the gallery at the PACE Center in Parker. It’s included in an exhibit, “Contrast,” by the adventurous Front Range Contemporary Quilters, which runs through June 25. Curator Rose Fredrick comments that this exhibit “offers a chance to see the familiar in a new way.” The juror was Linda Colsh. Vander SONYA’S Does’ brilliant red SAMPLER work begins with a digital image print on fabric. Then it is stitched in a more traditional manner — but not quite! Perhaps inspired by a Japanese maple tree, it’s part of an adventurous collection of fiber art Sonya Ellingboe pieces that includes some clothing and other works that will surprise. Open during business hours at the center and of course, during performances. Allow extra time to look at the gallery and the halls. PACE is at 20000 Pikes Peak Ave., Parker. Stutson book honored The charming children’s book “Blue Corn Soup,” by Littleton’s Caroline Stutson, was, sadly, pub-

lished posthumously. It just won first place for children’s literature in the Colorado Authors’ League’s annual contest and notice has been received by Al Stutson that it will be distributed to every firstgrader in the state of New Mexico, an especially fitting honor to a devoted storyteller. Available locally. “Wealth By Virtue” by Chad Gordon of Centennial is the CAL’s choice for general non-fiction. Symphonic music The Arapahoe Philharmonic presents a concert called “Order and Chaos,” featuring works by Brahms and Stravinsky, at 7:30 p.m. May 19 at Englewood High School’s Fisher Auditorium, 3800 S. Logan St., Englewood. Pianist is Jamie Shaak. The Brahms concerto premiered in 1859 with the composer at the keyboard. Stravinsky’s early 20th-century “Rites of Spring” sparked a riot at its premier and is considered perhaps the most influential piece of music of the early 20th century. Conductor Devin Patrick Hughes will talk about the program at 6:45 p.m. Tickets: arapahoe-phil.org or 303-781-1892. Cleo Parker Robinson “Dream Catchers” with the Cleo Parker Robinson Dance Ensemble will be performed at 1:30 p.m. Sunday, May 20 at Lone Tree Arts Center,

Landscaping guidelines will be created true to the historical and native landscape along the High Line Canal, dating back to the 1880s. The trail has five character zones: Wild Canyon, Prairie Retreat, Rolling Foothills, Wooded Village and Urban Refuge. A full assessment of plants has never been made. Images and species lists will be made public when developed. South Suburban The South Suburban Public Art Committee has an opening and invites inquiries from those who want to serve on this nine-member committee.

ACC releases 2018 issue of prestigious Progenitor Art, literature pieces maintain journal’s tradition of quality BY SONYA ELLINGBOE SELLINGBOE@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Progenitor: A person who first thinks of something and causes it to happen. This definition faces an opening letter from the co-editors, Arapahoe Community College students Cara Allen and Rachel Lozano, in the 2018 edition of Progenitor, Art and Literary Journal 2018. The beautifully produced journal is available free, at the college library, the Welcome Desk on the second floor and in the Community Section of the Aspen Grove Tattered Cover Bookstore in Littleton, Allen said. They comment that “by working with myriad contributors, each one proud to bring forth their life’s experiences, we strived to create a magazine of pure excellence, while embracing the theme of regrowth out of the ruins of everyday life. More important, these works suggest that there will always be hope that humanity will be seen through the cracks of a cold and brutal world …”

The 53rd annual edition of Progenitor was introduced May 2 with a celebration in the Colorado Gallery of the Arts at Arapahoe Community College. Contributing writers read from and spoke about their pieces, and editors of the journal talked about the logistics of selecting the varied 2018 works from materials submitted. Submissions were chosen from students and from working writers across the country, submitted between October and February, and the journal is produced by students enrolled in English 231 and Multimedia and Graphic Design 280 at ACC, with funding provided by the School of Communications, Humanities, Art and Design. On more than one occasion, most recently, 2017, Progenitor was honored with the asard for Most Outstanding Community College Literary-Art Magazine by the American Scholastic Press Association. Other awards have also accumulated through the years for this classy production. Winners in the yearly ACC literary Festival and the annual Student Art Juried Exhibition are included in the collection each year, providing an added incentive to enter. Entries were received in poetry, art, fiction and nonfiction and reviewed by the staff. The faculty advisers were Andrea Mason, English, and John Hall, graphic design, as well as Colorado

Gallery of the Arts director Trish Sangelo. In addition to Allen and Lozano, student staff included: Rosette Rivera, literary and art general editor; Hollie Giannaula, creative director; Britni Azam, poetry editor; Donna Debacco, web editor; Kera Morris, fiction editor; Milo Shattell, art/photography editor; Bryden Smith, nonfiction editor. Art photos include entries in the annual student show and others, including student Jadon Gold’s humorous “Origami Forest Fire,” while written pieces include “Wind Song” by Jane

Adair, an award-winning Colorado writer; “Eden,” by Darryl Halbrooks, a Writers Studio Literary Contest winner; and Writers Studio Poetry winner “¡Oye! ¡Gringo!” by Brian Dickson, who teaches at Community College of Denver. The graphic design of the cover is cleverly carried into the journal, with a special ending to each written work. From its crisp cover design of a city growing roots to its collection of polished work, Progenitor 2018 is a treat for the reader. Seek a copy!

‘Sully’ soon will headline Centennial Airport’s 50th BY ELLIS ARNOLD EARNOLD@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

One of the busiest general-aviation airports in the country will host famed “miracle on the Hudson” pilot Capt. Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger for its 50th anniversary celebration. The gala luncheon May 25 will see Sullenberger share his credo of “leadership by personal example.” Proceeds from the event will go to benefit the Centennial Airport Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization that supports local STEM education and programs, particularly those with an emphasis on aviation and aerospace. The audience at the Denver Marriott Tech Center will hear an address from Sullenberger about the life lessons that prepared him to handle the historic moment when he saved 155 lives on a flight that landed in the Hudson River. On Jan. 15, 2009, Sullenberger lost thrust in both engines on US Airways Flight 1549 and led his crew to safely execute an emergency water landing on the river in New York. Sullenberger and the crew garnered widespread acclaim for their actions, including the passage of a congressional resolution in their honor. The crisis came

to be known as the “miracle on the Hudson” and inspired the 2016 motion picture “Sully,” in which Tom Hanks portrayed Sullenberger. Coming back to Centennial Airport to talk about leadership seemed natural for Sullenberger, who served as a fighter pilot for the Air Force from 1975-80. Originally the Arapahoe County Airport, it’s a place he became acquainted with nearly five decades ago. “When I entered the U.S. Air Force Academy, I already held a commercialpilot certificate that I had earned while still in high school,” said Sullenberger, a Texas native. “During the Thanksgiving weekend of my freshman year, I traveled to the Arapahoe County Airport to fly a Cessna 172 to get some flight time and maintain my piloting skills. I flew an hour-long flight that day. Over my four years at the academy, I had occasion to fly into

When Phil Gustafson heard last November, through his church, that fellow member Charles Roberts needed a kidney transplant, he had faith a donor would be found. But Gustafson began to worry when he continued to see Roberts in church, his health declining. When the two Lone Tree residents saw each other at a memorial service for another church member a few weeks later, Gustafson noted to his wife that Roberts didn’t look well. “I’ve always avoided medical things,” said Gustafson, 59, a tax consultant. “I don’t even like to visit people in the hospital. I’ve never had surgery or any kind of medical issue.” And that’s when Gustafson felt a little voice in his heart saying maybe he should be the donor. Although both couples had attended church together for more than a decade, they didn’t know each other personally. “I never in a million years considered donating a kidney,” Gustafson said. But “I thought about Charles and thought `What if he’s not around in five years?’ What would I say to

Although a living donation from a family member is often the best chance for a match, a process called Kidney Paired Donation allows those who are not a match for a family member to be paired with another recipient, creating a circle of recipients and donors. Transplant centers use a computer database that matches potential recipients with willing donors. By forming an alliance, transplant centers increase the possibility for matches. The following transplant centers in Colorado participate in the Kidney Paired Donation program: • University of Colorado Hospital/HSC, 720-848-2237, www.uch.edu/conditions/ transplant-services Phil Gustafson, left, meets with Charles Roberts after donating a kidney to Roberts the day before.

could say he tried. ‘Others had it worse’ Kidney problems ran in the Roberts family, so a family donor was not an option for Roberts, 77, who owns a family construction business, and who had been on dialysis for 18 months by last November. His wife, Nannette, had been placing placards on cars in parking lots asking for donors, and Gustafson’s wife, Barb, was passionate about helping her. Gustafson passed the first test. And the following ones, too. “I wanted a reason to chicken out, but I just kept passing the tests,” he said. “Finally, I was a match, and I had to decide.” His wife encouraged him: “What an amazing thing you can do — you can give the gift of life.” Gustafson surprised himself, he said, but knew it was the right decision. Meanwhile, Charles Roberts’ health continued to decline and his wife was preparing to pay for a billboard asking for a donor. Because the donation process is anonymous, the Gustafsons were unable to tell the Robertses that Gustafson had been deemed a match and plans were in the works for a transplant. Roberts, a private person uncomfortable with others worrying about him, remained positive, relying on his faith. “There are times when you say ‘Why me?’ ” Roberts said. “But God kept other people in front of me who were worse off than me. I couldn’t have pity because others had it worse. I always felt blessed, even when I was going through dialysis.” A ‘life-changing’ event In early January, the Gustafsons were given the OK to tell the Rob-

The four were in Bible class at Littleton Church of Christ when Gustafson revealed his decision to donate. “Let’s pray about our upcoming surgeries,” Gustafson recalled saying. “It took them a minute, but then it clicked that I was a match and going to donate a kidney to Charles. There were a lot of tears all the way around.” The surgeries took place Jan. 24, and both men came through the procedures well. According to Nannette Robers, her husband’s appearance improved within hours of receiving Gustafson’s kidney. Gustafson’s recovery was more difficult. He was relegated to a liquid diet for nearly a week while Roberts began eating solid food immediately. “There’s no way to describe what it feels like to have someone give you life,” Charles Roberts said in an interview April 26, tears welling in his eyes. “It’s been life-changing to be off of dialysis.” As for Gustafson, he would do it all over again. “I received the best physical of my life,” he said of the physical and mental vetting necessary to be a donor. “And seeing Nannette and Charles both healthy and happy is worth it.”

Ashley Hartman Castle View High School

I find this type of law to be interesting and helpful to others.

What do you hope to accomplish in life? I hope to become successful and happy in life. I want to make myself proud, achieve my future goals and meet new people.

What profession or career do you want to pursue? Why? I plan on pursuing a career in family law. I’ve always wanted to be an attorney and

She will be attending the University of Colorado. What profession or career do you want to pursue and why? I plan to pursue a career as a pediatric oncologist nurse. I have always loved helping people and I love children. I was inspired by a childhood friend I knew who had

cancer. I will attend the University of Colorado for a four-year psychology degree, before attending nursing school. What do you hope to accomplish in life? I hope to travel to Africa and other countries where I can use my medical skills to help people and contribute in missions. If you could do anything, it would be to ... Take a cruise to every country you’re allowed to go to.

I’ve learned that the connections you make with people as you learn and grow are the most vital part of personal success. You need people supporting you and working beside you to achieve the goals you

I’ve learned that every day you have the chance to influence others around you through the life you lead. — Noraa Fort, Lutheran High School

— Savannah Howard, Mountain Vista High School

In high school I feel that I have learned how to enjoy the great times in life and battle through the toughest times in life — persevering no matter what obstacles get put in your way because life isn’t always easy. I think that is something I can take and apply to my entire life going forward, never giving up no matter what the circumstances are.

I have learned how valuable resilience and determination are. It’s always good to have dreams and plans, but adaptability is just as important. Just because something doesn’t go how you planned — a competition, a test, a friendship — doesn’t mean that it’s wrong. — Cyra Gallano, STEM Highlands Ranch

— PJ Ausmus, Legend High School

I’ve learned the importance of time management and that without it, I would be behind in everything. — Lauren Lippert, Mountain Vista High School

I think having a sense of humility in life is important. Even if you’re successful in everything you do, be humble, and don’t be afraid to learn from others. — Gabriela Blanchard, Ponderosa High School

My dad has always said “If it were easy, everyone would do it.” I think hard work and not giving up are important to take with me into life. — Isaac Power, Ponderosa High School

I’ve learned the value of time management and study skills, but I’ve also learned the importance of knowing when to lean on other people for support. I’ve learned how to deal with what you can’t control and to take advantage of things you can control. I also think it’s important to enjoy every moment. — Abby Ulrich, Chaparral High School

Ashley Garcia Douglas County High School I played volleyball all four years of high school and was a part of NHS. I made some great memories and learned a lot but now it’s time for the next step. For me, that is going to college at University of Northern Colorado to major in athletic training. What profession or career do you want to pursue? Why? In the future, I would like to be an athletic trainer for either college sports teams or professional sports teams. The main reason why I want to be an athletic trainer is because I want to help people and make sure athletes get the right medical help and also teach people how to prevent injuries. In today’s society, sports are really popular and it seems like too many athletes are getting hurt and I just want to be able to help in any way that I can. Also, the

medical field has always interested me and when I explored into it more, I found this and decided to go further with it. What do you hope to accomplish in life? This may sound really cliché, but I want to just be happy in life. I want to give back to all the people that have helped me throughout my life and also help those that I don’t even know. I love spreading positivity and find that if you put happiness out into the world, it will come back to you. I don’t need much in life and honestly my biggest accomplishments come from happiness. If I could do anything, it would be to… If I could do anything, it would be to travel the world. I’ve always dreamt of traveling and to this day it is on the top of my bucket list.

John Bustamante Highlands Ranch High School The first few years of high school I wasn’t involved too much, and that honestly was really big regret for me. But senior year I joined this class called ACE, which stands Alternative Cooperative Education. They did a lot of projects outside of the classroom. They partnered with Big Idea, which partners mentors with students to go out into the community and find a problem and try and solve it. We actually just presented our final projects and made it to state. I ended up winning $250 worth of scholarship money. When I started getting more involved, things started to come out better for me. What profession or career do you want to pursue? Why? I’m not planning on going to college right after high school. I was planning on working and saving up money.

After that I want to go to college and learn about sports nutrition or sports science. For me, it’s really enjoyable to watch and see how much science goes into an athlete’s peak performance. That would be nice, to be able to make money off of something I like to do. What do you hope to accomplish in life? I hope to leave the world better than I found it. I want to help a lot of people and be a good person and go out in my community. I feel like especially with the class, ACE, it taught me a lot of people aren’t performing to their potential because they don’t have people helping them. I can’t solve everything, but I can give people the support they need. If I could do anything, it would be to… Travel this next year. That would be pretty cool to take a whole trip around the globe. Especially because I don’t have anything to worry about at the moment.

What have you learned that you will carry with you for the rest of your life? One of the most important things I’ve learned is how to adapt to change, and how to change what you expect. Things may not always work out in your favor, but you have to be able to change and still go on with what you want. — Ayla Main, Chaparral High School

She also enjoyed volunteering. Next year, she will be attending Colorado Christian University, where she will study health sciences and business, and play softball. What profession or career do you

want to pursue? I hope to become a physical therapist because I want to be involved with athletes and help people. What do you hope to accomplish in life? I hope to have a successful career and have a family. If I could do anything, it would be to ... Find a way for every dog and cat that needs a loving home to have one.

Yosheb Getachew Lutheran High School Getachew played football and track and was a member of the National Honor Society and Student Council. He will be attending Stanford University in California. What profession or career do you want to pursue and why? As of now I am pursuing a career in neuroscience, specifically the aspect of research. There are so many neuroscience diseases, such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s, that I would like to help control and prevent. I have always had aspirations to attend

an Ivy League school. What do you hope to accomplish in life? I want my life to have meaning beyond a superficial existence. I want to increase the quality of living by helping my fellow man. I want success in whatever I do. If you could do anything, what would it be? Professionally, I would like to be the person who breaks through the scientific barrier that opens the brain for us to study and treat illnesses. Personally, I would like to own a private island.

David Painter Legend High School Painter was home schooled until his freshman year at Legend. Once enrolled at Legend he joined the Thespians Society, was a member of the National Honors Society, National English Honors Society, Tri-M Music Honors Society and Choir Council. Painter plans to attend the University of Denver, where he will major in Film Studies and Production. What profession or career to you want to pursue? At DU, I plan on majoring in Film Studies & Production. Which, I guess in a nutshell means I want to be a filmmaker. But I truly have always found a passion in making movies specifically. I have never wanted to be a videographer who films commercials/promo videos for a living. I think that aspect of film making is not fun (at least for me). I think the reason I love fulllength professional films in particular, is because I have loved watching (and making) movies ever since I was a little kid. It’s always been apart of my childhood that I can cherish. I think that there is a certain magic that occurs in a movie, that happens nowhere else. What do you hope to accomplish in life? This question is hard for me, because I think no matter how much I would like to say I have all of my goals and aspirations figured out, I know that they all are not. But as for now, I think that one of the biggest things

I hope to accomplish is success. I know that may sound cliche, but truly I do. I think a lot of people approach an answer like that and robotically assume that by saying “success” I mean money, and all the luxuries that come with it (granted, that wouldn’t suck either). In all honesty, I want more success with myself, than being considered “successful” by the outside. I want to be able to look back on what I’ve done and be proud of my success and more importantly, my progression as an individual. If I could do anything, it would be... Well, I’m not quite sure if I should take this question literally, or take the more “philosophical” approach, so I guess I’ll do both! If I could do anything literally, I would want to be able to have a superpower. Specifically, I would want telekinesis. Because it’s such a versatile superpower. I mean, wanna fly? Move your body with your brain. Wanna have super strength? Move a car with you brain. If I could do anything philosophically, I would say I would get the nicest camera I could, and travel around the world to try and spread positivity in any way that I could. I, myself have always been optimistic. My mom told me I came into the world with a smile on my face, and I don’t think that’s changed much in the last 18 years. I have always loved being happy, and I think especially in our world today, people just need more happiness.

Madison Tenney

Dana Coe Rock Canyon High School I am and have been involved with art my whole life as I love everything about it! The way it makes me feel, how it communicates, and how pleasing to the eye it can be, gets to me. I have participated in a lot of clubs including Red Cross, German, Eco, SMILE and am even an officer in the Biotechnology club. I have also participated in sports including field hockey and was on the first ever Girl’s Lacrosse team here at Rock Canyon. As of next year, I have declared myself to major in Bioengineering at CU Boulder. What profession or career do you want to pursue? Why? I intend to be a bioengineer! Everything about biology and chemistry interest me —especially on a molecular level. The awesome thing about being an engineer is it’s not only having the

knowledge in the field, but it’s applying the knowledge and skills gained in the major to solve real world issues. I’m beyond excited to start my life path! What do you hope to accomplish in life? All cheesiness aside, through my knowledge, I simply want to make the world better than what it is. To eliminate a suffering for a large amount of people is my ultimate goal. If I could do anything, it would be to… Eliminate disease, hunger, poverty, violence and injustice. Haha! Very unrealistic, I know. If you’re looking for something a bit more realistic, if I could do anything, it would be to do art for a living and have my paintings sell for millions! I would then, at that point, donate a majority of the profit. Maybe that’s a bit unrealistic, too, but you never

STEM School Highlands Ranch Tenney participates in student government, National Honor Society, and Sociedad Honoraria Hispánica. She’s also a member of Girls in STEM Denver. This fall, she will be attending the University of Kansas and will major in political science and economics. What profession or career do you want to pursue? Why? My family, teachers and mentors have done an amazing job at convincing me that I can be anything that my heart desires. I have been exposed to countless professions, all of which seemed perfectly fitting when introduced. It seemed that each week I would have a new career in sight. One of my mentors would always joke, “Madison is

going to be president one day!” She said it enough that I started to believe it. From there, I began to associate my academic interests of history, English and economics with my passion for politics. I intend to pursue a career as a constitutional lawyer or political consultant. What do you hope to accomplish in life? Over the course of my lifetime, I hope to make meaningful and positive relationships with those that I meet. I want to grow and learn with each obstacle I face. Most of all though, I want to make a mark on the world with my work, in whichever way I deem possible. If I could do anything, it would be to ... Spend time traveling abroad to study the influence of politics on culture.

What have you learned that you will carry with you for the rest of your life? Something I have learned in high school is that you can find friends in the most unlikely places. No matter what the situation is you will always find a friend.

Throughout my high school years, I have learned that through hard work and the right mindset you can obtain the goals you set. Whether it’s to make the varsity team, get a 4.0, or just graduate, if you keep your goal in mind and the steps you need to get it, you will achieve it.

— Emily Conway, Highlands Ranch High School

— Maddy Ketron, Douglas County High School

Uncomfortable situations can be really beneficial to your experience in high school. They force you to work with people you may not get along with and meet new people.

FOR THE COMIC COLLECTORS • Despite all the hoopla over celebrities and special events, Denver Comic Con very much still treasures the comic culture that created this cultural movement. Comic stores and dealers from the metro area and beyond will be selling current and classic books, and many stellar artists and writers will be on hand as well. • Andrew Middleton, a comic expert at Colorado Coins, Cards and Comics in Arvada, has attended the Comic Con numerous times, and said he loves meeting the variety of people who show up to share their love of the form. “There’s not one kind of person who loves comic books anymore,” he said. “My favorite part

Those who want to read them are going to be focused on stories and characters, whereas the collectors are going to be more interested in certain issues and willing to spend more money. Attendees should determine where their interests lie, as that will help guide their shopping. • One of the best things about the con, Middleton said, is meeting

For information and tickets, visit moesdenver.com/englewood-bbq-restaurant-sports-bar/events. Jazz to start the summer at Five Points One of the great things about jazz is the diversity of musicians and styles that fit comfortably inside this dynamic and vital genre.

If a shopper is searching for a particular issue or collectible item, doing some research online will help narrow down the retailers to meet. “Most of these people are experts, so keep in mind the stories or characters you most care about, and they can offer recommendations,” he added. “Some vendors are going to feature the latest books, while others will be looking to highlight the rare stuff.”

SPORTS KEEPING IT CLOSE

Golfer demonstrates unpredictability of game

I

Douglas County’s Case Williams, right, celebrates with Tom Wink after Williams belted a solo home run in the fourth inning of the May 12 Class 5A Region 2 baseball game against Fort Collins. The game was played at Arapahoe High School and the Huskies scored a run in the bottom of the seventh inning to tie the game but saw their season end with a 3-2 loss in 10 innings. JIM BENTON

Local teams set for state baseball tournament STAFF REPORT

After regional tournaments May 12 and 13, teams are set to compete in the Class 3A, 4A and 5A double-elimination portion of the state baseball tournaments. Mountain Vista, Arapahoe, Heritage and Rock Canyon are south metro 5A teams that advanced. Valor Christian will be seeking its third straight 4A title and Lutheran is in the 3A field. Games during the first two days of the 5A state bracket on May 18-19 will be played at All-City Stadium and Metro State. Games for the final two days of the 5A event on May 25-26 will be held at All-City Stadium. The 4A tournament will be held at All-Star Park in Lakewood and Bishop Machebeuf High School the first two days before moving to Metro State on May 25-26. The 3A tournament will be held in Greeley at Butch Butler Field and at Niwot High School.

Mountain Vista, which routed Mullen 17-2 in the opener, beat Legend 10-5 to win the Region 1 championship and advanced to the double-elimination state tournament. Grant Magill went 3-for-3 and drove in two runs against Legend and Sam Ireland also had three hits and two RBIs. Ireland had three hits and five RBIs in the victory over Mullen. Justin Boyd and Hank Bard each had a pair of hits for the Titans in the game against Vista. Arapahoe edged Fort Collins, 5-2, to win the Region 2 championship. The Warriors collected 14 hits against the Lambkins, who beat Douglas County 3-2 in 10 innings, to advance to the finals. Preston Scheidt and Brandon Dryer each had three hits and Dryer drove in three runs to pace the Arapahoe attack. Dryer also had three hits and three RBIs in the Warriors’ 12-0 opening win over Prairie View. Heritage captured the Region 5 title

with a 9-4 victory over Chaparral. The Eagles, which beat Chaparral 9-8 in eight innings on April 30, were led offensively by junior Eric McKnight who went 4-for-4, scored twice and had three RBIs in the 15-hit attack. Rock Canyon knocked off perennial state contender Cherry Creek, 5-4, to win the Region 8 title. The Jaguars went 13 innings before earning a 6-4 victory over Monarch to move on to the title game. Valor Christian, which edged Kennedy 2-1 in the first game, posted an 11-4 victory over Berthoud to win the 4A Region 5 title. It was the 15th straight win for the two-time defending 4A state champion Eagles. Lutheran rode the one-hit pitching of junior Corbyn Seymore to a 7-0 shutout over Bennett in the finals of the Class 3A Region 2 tournament. Jacob Chwialkowski had three hits and Noa Vogel got two hits and three RBIs to pace the Lions’ offense.

t’s been said many times that golf is an unpredictable sport that requires plenty of mental grit. For myself, golf has always been pretty predictably bad, with a few good shots and holes but very few good rounds. And the mental fortitude has always been missing, since after a good OVERTIME hole, I have myself talked into botching the tee shot on the next hole. Highlands Ranch senior Jenna Chun know all about how golf can be unpredictable, but she has the mental strength to handle it, as Jim Benton she displayed last season at the Class 5A state tournament. After an opening round 83 at The Club at Rolling Hills, she rallied with a 1-under par 71 to tie Grandview’s Amy Chitkoksoong for medalist honors and force a playoff for the individual state title. Chun had a chance to win but missed a putt on the second playoff hole and also couldn’t hole a bogey putt on the third extra hole. Chitkoksoong ran in her bogey putt and was crowned the state champ with a bogey putt. It was a disheartening finish to a very good day but Chun faced the music, acted like a winner and answered question after question following the awards ceremonies. “The best I’ve ever seen Jenna Chun was after the state meet,” said Highlands Ranch coach Jon Cushing. “She took defeat with a lot of grace. Golf is such a mental sport. She has come back this year with a great mental attitude. She doesn’t let one high score on a hole affect her.” Chun, who carded a two-over-par 74 at the Central regional tournament at South Suburban on May 7, won three Continental League tournaments and the league’s Player of the Year. Ralston Valley coach Wendy Davis is another person who can attest to the unpredictability of a two-day state tournament. The Mustangs were five shots off the lead after the opening round but won their first state golf championship by nine shots after a remarkable round in which the average round for the three scoring golfers was 76.3.

Creek girls capture tennis crown Twin sisters win titles for Bruins BY JIM BENTON JBENTON@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Tennis is in the blood of Cherry Creek’s freshman twin sisters Eliza and Nicole Hill. It’s something natural for them because the family has played and watched a lot of tennis. The sisters helped the Bruins win the Class 5A state championship May 11 at the Gates Tennis Center. Eliza won the No. 2 singles state title when she defeated Alexis Bernthal of Fairview, 6-1, 6-3. Nicole captured the No. 3 singles crown with a 6-3, 6-1 victory over Jenesse Johnson of Denver East. The Bruins easily won their second straight state title and 34th overall with 85 points compared to 38 for runner-up Poudre. ThunderRidge, Regis Jesuit, Rock Canyon and Mountain Vista finished in a four-way tie for sixth place with 15 points each. Eliza and Nicole are the latest in the Hill family to enjoy state tournament success, and neither sister lost a set all season. Their father, Rob, was a state singles champion at Manual. Mother Julie was a double champ at Cherry Creek. Robby, now a freshman at Villanova, was a No. 2 singles champion

Eliza played at No. 2 singles after beating her sister in two early season challenge matches. “I got lucky,” said Eliza. “I’m not better than her. We usually split wins depending on who has the better day. I just happened to have two better days.” Nicole echoed her sister’s thoughts about winning a state title after watching her brothers and then emphasized

Cherry Creek coach Chris Jacob talks with freshman twins Nicole (center) and Eliza Hill after their semifinal matches at the Class 5A state tennis tournament on May 11 at the Gates Tennis Center. Eliza won the No. 2 singles state championship and Nicole was the No. 3 single champ. JIM BENTON there was no pressure about playing in a Cherry Creek program that has had so much success in tennis.

FROM PAGE 32

Wait until next year Next season’s Class 5A girls state tennis tournament could be very interesting because most of the freshman standouts from this year’s tourney will be back and be more experienced and better players. There was definitely a youth movement this season with six of the 12 players in the Class 5A singles semifinals being freshmen. There were 31 freshmen who played in tournament and there are even more sophomores who qualified for the tourney — too many to count. The youth movement cast a tentative feeling over the tournament because of the uncertainty of how the young players would play with the added pressure of playing in an important tournament with many more people watching. “One of the points of focus was just talking about the environment,” said Cherry Creek coach Chris Jacob. “Even though we hosted the regionals and some of the girls have been down here to watch state, it’s totally different when you are playing with the pressure of the crowd. So we spent a lot of time talking about that.”

TENNIS FROM PAGE 35

Besides the Hills, the Bruins won three doubles titles as Micha Handler and Miranda Kawula were first in No. 1 doubles, Anna Fusaris and Halley Mackiernan at No. 2 doubles, and Emily Wilkins and Dahlia Rappaport captured the No. 4 doubles crown. The tournament was condensed to two days from three because of the threat of rainy weather on May 12, but

Of the 11 players including those on doubles teams that won state 5A championships, there were seven freshman and two sophomores. Soccer shootouts I’m going to get on my soapbox again and claim there needs to be a better way to determine winners of playoff soccer games other than penalty kick shootouts. Soccer is a team game. Determining the winning postseason team with a shootout, which most times is determined by luck or an individual’s skill, needs to be altered. The best way would be to let the teams continue to play, but then you get into the problem with fatigue and the chance of injuries. A team’s depth would be tested as more substitute players would need to be used. Shootouts are acceptable during the regular season but not in the playoffs. So suggestions are needed. Maybe let the teams continue to play 9 vs. 9 or even 7 vs. 7 until a team gets that Golden Goal. Jim Benton is a sports writer for Colorado Community Media.

the change didn’t stop Rock Canyon sophomore Meghna Chowdhury from making school history. She became the first Rock Canyon player to advance to the state finals. She lost 6-4, 6-4 in the No. 1 singles finale to Poudre’s Ky Eaton, who won her second straight championship. “When I first got on the court, it was nerve-racking, with so many people with cameras,” said Chowdhury, who didn’t qualify for the state tournament last season. “But this was the first time anybody from Rock Canyon has made the finals. “
