School board member resigns Justin Williams cites desire to spend more time with family By Jane Reuter

jreuter@coloradocommunitymedia.com Douglas County School Board Member Justin Williams stepped down from his post Jan. 6, saying he wants to fulfill a new year’s resolution to spend more time with his family. Williams had filed with the Colorado Secretary of State as a candidate for House District 44, but said he is not moving forward with that effort.

“I am in the process of withdrawing my filing to run for that seat,” he wrote in an email. “I am not running. I need to be a dad, something I have some room for improvement in.” The seat presently is held by Chris Holbert, who is running for the District 30 Senate seat, currently occupied by Ted Harvey. In a news release issued by the Douglas County School District, Williams said, “I have served on the board for over six years and have really enjoyed being a part of such a wonderful school district with excellent people. “It is time to spend my time focusing on my primary role as a husband and a father to my five children. I am very proud of the work

we have accomplished and will always cherish it.” Williams, who represents the Parker area in District F, was first elected to the board in 2007. He was re-elected in 2011, and his second term was set to expire in NovemWilliams ber 2015. School board president Kevin Larsen, also quoted in the email, said the process to replace Williams will begin after the board formally accepts Williams’ resignation during its Jan. 21 meeting. “Our first priority is to thank Justin for his service, his passion, and his unwavering

commitment to DCSD,” wrote Larsen. “We regret that he will be unable to complete his term. “At our next meeting, the board will discuss a resolution to outline the process for replacing director Williams. I expect that we will set forth a process that includes an application and interview.” Williams, an executive with the Denver branch of the technology company Long View Systems, did not return calls requesting further comment. Douglas County Commissioner Jack Hilbert also has filed as a candidate for House District 44.

It started in a garage and grew Douglas/Elbert Task Force to celebrate 30 years with concert By Virginia Grantier

vgrantier @coloradocommunitymedia.com A Castle Rock woman, knowing some local families were struggling financially, started collecting items in her garage to distribute to people who needed them. Mela Rudolph knew the families well enough that she often knew just POSTAL ADDRESS

what they needed and would deliver the items to them, said Connie Huydts, 82, who started helping Rudolph soon after Rudolph started her garage project. That was about 30 years ago. Rudolph and a couple of Rudolph’s friends, such as Minnie Hoffmann, who got involved with the effort, have died. But Huydts is still around. And she’s still volunteering for the organization Rudolph started, which is now called the Douglas/Elbert Task Force, located in a former church building on Park Street. Huydts will be one of several peo-

ple and organizations honored — the first recipients of the new Rudolph Award — when the task force celebrates its 30th anniversary Feb. 16 with a concert featuring Firefall, a Colorado-based band formed in the 1970s. Firefall had a string of hits and is known for its philanthropic efforts, said Joe Roos, the task force’s parttime director of philanthropy. Concert proceeds will go to help fund a $425,000 renovation project for the task force’s building on Park Street. Huydts said she got involved in

The resignation of Clark Hammelman, Castle Rock’s mayor pro tem and councilmember for District 6, was the final item on the Jan. 7 agenda. Castle Rock Town Council was expected to discuss his resignation, which was to take effect that night, and discuss filling the vacancy. Hammelman hoped he would be picked to fill the vacancy, he told Colorado Community Media in a Jan. 3 interview. He explained that he had been planning to resign since winning a second term in 2012. Hammelman said his first term, from 2010-2012, was a two-year term. But then the term length for councilmembers was changed to a four-year term. So in 2012 he had to run for a four-year term even though he really didn’t want that length of term for family reasons. He said he’s almost 65 and wants more flexibility in his life, more time with family. But he still wanted to serve for a time, so decided to serve for two years and then resign. He had planned to resign after this spring’s election, but decided it would be best to step down now to give possible candidates time to file their candidacy and be able to run in April. He said he hoped the council would appoint him to fill his vacated seat until the April election. Hammelman said his resignation has nothing to do with the upcoming first reading on Jan. 21 of a draft ordinance that could, after a future second reading, repeal the town’s current ban on open carry of firearms in town buildings. Hammelman has been a supporter of keeping the ban in place. “It doesn’t have anything to do with that… not at all or anything else, other than work — it takes me away from my family,” he said. Hammelman said he hadn’t read a news release put out recently by the Windsor-based Rocky Mountain Gun Owners lobbying group that expressed satisfaction and responsibility for his resignation. Hammelman said he has not been the recipient of

Son takes family to uncharted territory Neil DiLorenzo lays the brown folder on the kitchen table. As he tells the tale and to better illustrate his point, he pulls out a map, a list of coordinates, a copy of an email, a log of emergency numbers. The thick file holds a literal paper trail, meticulously plotted, of his son’s extraordinary expedition in unsettled lands far away, a trip of self-discovery taken like pilgrims of old, on foot, alone, depending on the kindness of strangers for food and shelter. And, in this day of immediate and unceasing communication, no cell phone or laptop, therefore — for the most part — no connection to family or friends. “It did hit me, several weeks into it — he’s homeless,” Neil says. “I saw a homeless man and thought, `That’s my son,’ except he’s in a foreign land.” They call it Donovan’s Journey. But make no mistake: It’s Neil and Michelle DiLorenzo’s journey, too, one more in the life of parents, this one lived daily with a worry that hunkers in their hearts, even as they celebrate the unique courage of their child’s unusual quest. Neil: “We don’t really understand why he’s doing this.” Michelle: “It’s something that’s calling him.” Neil: “I think he felt he had to do this to discover himself, to see if he could live without the support of anyone.” For Donovan DiLorenzo, 42, the oldest of Neil and Michelle’s four children, an early career path seemed clear: Make money, lots of it. And as a marketing account executive working for top ad agencies, he was close to earning his first million before 9-11. But the devastating calamity shook him and rearranged his priorities. After researching urban school districts across the country, he decided to teach in the Ninth Ward in New Orleans, a predominantly African-American neighborhood struggling with deep poverty. He earned a master’s in education while teaching there. As Katrina bore down, he delivered two carloads of Ninth Ward residents to his sister’s home in Arkansas for safety, and later relocated them to Dallas — he still keeps in touch with the families. After Katrina, he gutted flooded homes, cooked in community kitchens and distributed supplies and information to victims. In 2006, he joined the Peace Corps and spent 28 months teaching in Malawi in southeast Africa, one of the world’s least-developed countries. He returned to New Orleans, teaching in a charter school, while also housing and sup-

porting several immigrants from Malawi. “He doesn’t have anything,” Neil says, “but he gives everything he has.” Last summer, Donovan decided to act on a new dream — a pilgrimage through the Middle East and India with the possibility of writing a book about those experiences. To prepare, he gave away all his possessions, including his cell phone and laptop. He mailed books and mementos to his parents’ Highlands Ranch home. He kept one change of clothes, a sleeping bag, a tent and his bike and began cycling to Colorado. For three weeks, Neil and Michelle didn’t know where he was, or how he was. “It was,” says Michelle, who texts her children good morning every day, “awful.” One afternoon, they spotted him riding down the street. “He looked like the UPS man,” Neil says. But Donovan’s test run had proved successful. Planning began for the big journey. “We really wanted him to buy a cell phone,” Neil says. “He refused. He didn’t want to be able to communicate with anyone.” A friend told Neil about a lightweight GPS tracker that fits in the palm of a hand. “You’re not talking to us,” Neil told Donovan. “You’re not really communicating. At least, as long as the coordinates are moving, we’ll know you’re alive.” So, Donovan agreed. Every three days, he would activate the GPS device. Neil would plot the latitude and longitude on maps and be able to follow his route. The outgoing, friendly boy who loved sports but not hiking or being outdoors, and who often took three showers a day because he was a bit of a clean freak, strapped on Teva sandals, determined to push his boundaries even further. He boarded an airplane for Jordan Aug. 26. “This journey is really a pilgrimage of sorts,” he wrote before he left on a website set up by family to track his travels. “I’ll walk a good portion of my travels such that the journey is slower by nature, giving me more time to think, write and connect with others . . . . As in a traditional pilgrimage, I step out without

strangers inviting him to tea and conversation, playing with children near the Dead Sea. After walking 661 miles through the Middle East, including a brief stay in Egypt with a friend during which he was able to call Neil and Michelle, Donovan is now walking through India. Inadequate computer and satellite networks have prevented the GPS tracker from sending coordinates. “I worry more about him getting sick and if he gets sick what is he going to do,” Michelle says. “I pray every day that he doesn’t get sick.” “It’s the unknown,” Neil says, “and how is he going to handle it.” Through scarce emails, they knew Donovan had traveled in December to a wellknown ashram in Puttaparthi to meditate and study awhile. “He’s right here,” Neil says, pointing to the town north of Bangalore. “I feel he’s in a safer place. The only negative is I don’t hear from him every three days.” Despite the worry, their son’s adventure leaves them in awe. “I envy what he’s doing,” says Neil, an avid hiker. “I wish I would have thought of something like this. . . . ” “I feel he has a calling and we’re behind him the whole way — we will support him always,” Michelle says. “I just wish he’d be home.” On Jan. 3, Neil checked his email to find a priceless New Year’s gift — a message from Donovan, the first since Dec. 20. “The path has changed a bit,” Donovan wrote. “I feel the need to pay respects to Gandhi and the Dalai Lama.” He is headed to their ashrams. Although he mentioned possibly returning to Colorado in May and that he had experienced some “tenuous times,” he also noted he wanted to spend three months working with Mother Teresa’s Sisters of Charity in Calcutta. “Obviously, as things unfold, he wants to do more and more things,” Neil says, “but it’s kind of hard to see what he will do for sure.” So, Michelle and Neil wait. It’s all they can do. “He is,” Michelle says, “always in my prayers and in my mind.”

many resources and see how life unfolds. Not expecting this to very easy, but meaningful.” He had enough money and a credit card to buy local clothing and necessary border and travel documents. The first night in Amman, he spent in a hotel. And then, he was on his way. The first three weeks, Neil and Michelle slept two to three hours a night. Neil developed a routine, checking email as soon as he woke to see if the GPS tracker had sent coordinates, then heading down to the kitchen for coffee with Michelle. One of the earliest locations came through Sept. 2. Neil spreads the map of Jordan, Syria and Israel on the table. His finger jabs the location he has circled in black marker. “He was trying to cross the King Hussein bridge. . . which made me nervous because he’s going from Jordan to Israel ...” On Sept. 6, another set of coordinates arrived. They put Donovan just south of the Sea of Galilee. “He’s two, three miles from the Syrian border,” Neil says. “Within a day of that, Obama said we’re going to declare war. For all I knew, he knew nothing of the problem. . . . (A friend in Egypt) said he’s got to get out of there; he’s got to get a gas mask. We were just totally petrified.” Michelle misses being able to talk to Donovan every day. “I am very nervous . . . that has been really, really hard not knowing where he’s at,” she says. But “you have to let them do their own thing.” Sometimes, finding the locations doesn’t alleviate the worry. Neil folds open another map, a topographical one that seems to depict mountains and no roads. “When I see him in the middle of nowhere, like this,” he says, “it makes me even more concerned.” But Neil has become an expert map finder. What seems like mountains on one map turns out to be hills with a dirt road on another. Neil’s maps trace Donovan’s journey with careful precision. He circles the coordinate locations in black marker and writes the date, then highlights the route in yellow. Occasional emails from Donovan are carefully tagged and posted onto the website, donovansjourney.com, so that family and friends can follow, too. Neil posts information on Facebook, as well. Donovan has journaled three stories about his trip so far, also on the website. He writes about sleepless nights in the open listening to packs of wild dogs outside of Nazareth, the spontaneous kindness of

NEWS IN A HURRY Seedling trees available Seedling trees are available from the Douglas County Conservation District at a nominal cost on a first-come, first-served basis, according to a news release. The trees, deciduous and coniferous, and shrubs are to be planted for conservation uses such as windbreaks and shelterbelts, living snow fences, erosion control, wildlife habitat, and reforestation. The ordering deadline is March 28. For more information or an order form, call Pam Brewster at the Douglas County Conservation District 303-6883042 ext. 100, or email her at pam.brewster@co.nacdnet.

Christmas tree recycling People can bring their Christmas trees to several Castle Rock parks daily through Jan. 31 because of Castle Rock’s 14th annual recycling program. Trees can be dropped off at one of the following four parks: Centennial, Founders, Metzler Ranch Community

or Paintbrush parks. The trees will be turned into mulch, which will be available to the public at Metzler Ranch Community Park through March 31 — or until it’s gone.

ePublishing workshop Jan. 12

Writers, adults and teens, are invited to attend an ePublishing workshop from 1 to 3 p.m. Jan. 12 at Philip S. Miller Library’s Castle Rock Bank Room East/West. Jamie LaRue, library director for Douglas County Libraries, and Sharon Nemechek, collection services manager, plan to give step-by-step information on ePublishing using the Douglas County Libraries’ services.

Burglaries reported in Castle Rock

Four second-degree burglaries — described as forcedentry non-residence crimes — occurred in several Castle Rock neighborhoods in late December, according to information posted on raidsonline.com, an Internet site where Castle Rock police post some of the crimes that occur in town. One of the burglaries occurred at 12:30 p.m. Dec. 24 in the 2800 block of Russet Sky Court, according to the website. The second occurred at 4 a.m. Dec. 26 in the 1700 block of Tall Tale Lane. The third occurred at 5:55 a.m. Dec. 27 in the 4300 block of Manorbrier Circle. And the

fourth occurred the same day at 6 p.m. Dec. 27 in the 3700 block of Licorice Trail. The Castle Rock Police Department would not release any more information or details, calling all four crimes “ongoing investigations.”

Library branch renamed

“Highlands Ranch Library” no longer exists — the name, that is. The library, at 9292 Ridgeline Blvd., is being renamed the James H. LaRue Branch, after Jamie LaRue, who is retiring. His last day is Jan. 17, after almost 23 years of service as library director. The Douglas County Libraries’ board of trustees passed a resolution to honor him that way — and LaRue, upon hearing about the name change, was reportedly touched, according to a news release from Amber DeBerry, the libraries associate director of community relations. LaRue said recently he’s pretty sure he doesn’t deserve the honor, “but I accept it on behalf of the many, many people who also played a big role in the establishment of the Highlands Ranch Branch,” according to the news release. LaRue told staff he grew up in an age of mistrust of public institutions and that “it has been his great pleasure to work with a board and staff who have built an institution the community can be proud of, one whose leadership is recognized worldwide.”

Laughter, light and forgiveness fill arena Celebration of Claire Davis’ life draws thousands

to give The Davis family has established a fund in Claire’s name that will be used to support mental-health and anti-violence causes in the community.

jsmith@coloradocommunitymedia.com “Oh my gosh, Karl, what are you doing?” Those are the words that Claire Davis’ anguished father says were her last, spoken in the split second before Karl Pierson shot her in the head. “Claire tried to shine her light on his darkness,” said Michael Davis as he addressed the thousands of people who attended the celebration of Claire’s life, held at the National Western Stock Show arena on Jan. 1. Claire’s mother, Desiree, stood by his side as the room rose in a standing ovation. Although first responders rushed Claire from Arapahoe High School to the operating room within 30 minutes of the shooting on Dec. 13, she lapsed into a coma from which she would never emerge. She died on Dec. 21. Friends and family hope the entire community will take her final words forward as it tries to heal from yet another tragedy. “Before we say or do something, we should reflect and ask ourselves that last question,” said Pastor Steve Poos-Benson of Columbine United Church. “Ask ourselves what is it we are doing, and what is it we are doing to one another?” Michael Davis asked that Claire’s legacy be the light with which she filled the lives of all who knew her. “My wife and I forgive Karl Pierson,” he said. “Karl is no longer with us. It is no longer our responsibility to judge. As each of us must do someday, Karl must face infinity alone.” He said Claire would want everyone to forgive Pierson, and would want all who mourn her to keep love alive and light in

Photo by Jennifer Smith their lives. “Make love more important than hate, desperation and fear,” he said. Light and laughter seemed to fill every crevice of Claire’s life. Her boyfriend, Alex Chapman, let her say how important those things were to her in her own words, by reading a letter she wrote as part of a college application. “I think laughter makes people real,” she wrote. “I love to laugh and smile and, more importantly, to make others laugh and smile.” Chapman recalled how he knew she was special the minute he laid eyes on her. “I looked at her and I said, `Wow, she would be someone amazing to be with,’” he said. “… I love Claire so much, and I always will.” Several well-known names attended the event — U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet, Gov. John Hickenlooper and Olympian and Centennial resident Missy Franklin all

spoke, and Claire’s favorite band, One Direction, sent their regrets. Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson was recognized with a standing ovation, and praise went out to all the first responders, including Deputy James Englert, the school-resource officer who got to the scene within seconds, and firefighters from Littleton Fire Rescue Station 15, who rushed Claire to Littleton Adventist Hospital. But it was the people who knew Claire who brought her to life for those who didn’t. They told tales of screaming at teen-idol concerts, giggling for hours on end, making friendship bracelets, drinking milkshakes and talking about boys. “Almost every moment I spent with Claire we were laughing,” said Mary Strauss, a friend since middle school. “Over the years she taught me so much, but most importantly, how to love someone more than you love yourself.” Rebecca Johnson, Claire’s riding coach

National Western ready to roll Rodeo, livestock judging, special events come to Denver By Tom Munds

tmunds@coloradocommunitymedia.com Pro football’s biggest game is in February, but the National Western Stock Show, billed as the “Super Bowl of Livestock Shows and Sales,” comes to Denver Jan. 11-26. There are judging competitions for horses, cattle, sheep, swine, goats, llamas, bison, yaks, poultry and rabbits. Since space is fairly limited, animals are constantly moving in and out of the complex so that more than 15,000 head of livestock can take part in the judging competitions and sales In addition to the livestock judging competitions, there also are numerous livestock sales where millions of dollars change hands as thousands of animals are sold to new owners. While livestock activities go on almost constantly, the stock show’s daily schedule also may include rodeos, displays and entertainment. The fact there is something for almost everyone attracts hundreds of thousands of men, women and children through the turnstiles. Last year’s attendance was more than 628,000. The multitude of livestock judging and sales plus more than 50 special events are held at a variety of locations. While the rodeo performances are held in the Denver Coliseum, the majority of livestock show and sale activities plus some special events like Super Dogs are centered at the National Western Stock Show Arena and the pens in the nearby stockyards. The 16-day show is Colorado’s largest trade show with more than 350 vendors scheduled to be on the

The National Western opens Jan. 11 for its 2014 run and will include livestock judging and sales, rodeos and the Wild West Show that is patterned after the shows put on by Buffalo Bill Cody. Courtesy photo grounds this year. Many of the vendors will be located in the three-level Hall of Education near 46th Avenue. Another venue is the Events Center and Paddock located at the north end of the National Western complex. Parking is free but a general admission ticket is required to get into the stock show. The ticket entitles the holder to visit the trade show, displays, stock shows and auctions. Ticket prices vary from $13 to $19 for an adult. Tickets for children 3 to 11 years old are $2 to $3, depending on the day. Children under 3 get in free. The general admission ticket also is good for visits to the Children’s Ranchland and petting farm, which are open daily on the third floor of the Expo Hall. In addition, there are a variety of activities at the new Ames Activity Pavilion including stick horse rodeos,

kids pedal-tractor pulls, horseshoe pitching and dummy roping contests. The pavilion is open daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and the daily activity lists are posted on the website, www. nationalwestern.com, where you can also find out more about ticket prices. There about 50 special events that require admission tickets that range in price from $8 to $100 each. Each ticket includes a National Western admission ticket. Among the events on the entertainment schedule are two Mexican Rodeo Extravaganzas, three Professional Bull Riders events, two Wild West shows, the Grand Prix horse jumping show, two SuperDogs shows and the Martin Luther King Jr. African-American Heritage Rodeo. There are also 23 rodeo performances during first stop of the year for members of the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association.

for seven years, said Claire was a fierce competitor on her horse, Graphite Gran Grannus, but rode with grace under pressure and true class. “Above all else, she was kind, and the horses knew that, and they loved her,” said Johnson, who nicknamed Claire “Fluffy Rainbow Child.” “She left me an improved woman and a better coach,” she said. “Claire was my friend, and I loved her, and I know that love was returned.” Near the end of the ceremony, Johnson walked the horse out and retired the saddle of his fallen rider, presenting it to Claire’s mother. Poos-Benson sent the mourners home with a message to be vigilant in working to end the violence. “You need to go find the Karl Piersons in our community, and ask those Karls, `What are you doing? Where are you? We need you to be a part of us,’” he said. “You need to make sure that Karl gets help.” Claire’s parents and older brother, Alexander, thanked the community for its incredible support throughout their unimaginable ordeal. “She knew what it meant to have a friend and to be a friend,” said her father. “She was learning to find her bliss. The world was a better place with her in it, but we are coming to accept that it was time for us to return the gift to the giver.”

Gold Dome deja vu? Last year’s battles will surface again this legislative session By Vic Vela

vvela@coloradocommunitymedia.com Going into this year’s legislative session, lawmakers on both sides of the aisle insist that their next 120 days of work will focus on jobs and the economy. But the reality is that Democrats and Republicans will spend a good portion of their time refighting old battles inside the Capitol. Polarizing issues from last year’s session — rural energy mandates; oil and gas industry regulations; election reform; and, yes, gun control — will be debated again. It’s enough to make Yogi Berra proud, because a good portion of this year’s session will seem like deja vu all over again. “When you look at the outcry from the last session, there are some things that need to be looked at again,” said Senate Minority Leader Bill Cadman, R-Colorado Springs. “And we will have an opportunity to fix them.” Republicans will sponsor bills that seek to undo a Democrat-sponsored gun control package that was placed into law following last year’s session. The package led to new laws that created universal background checks on gun sales; limited the amount of ammunition that a high-capacity magazine can hold; and restricted domestic violence offenders’ access to guns. But Democratic leaders aren’t interested in having the same

Senate President Morgan Carroll, D-Aurora, speaks to reporters inside her Capitol office on Jan. 2, as Sens. Lucia Guzman, D-Denver, and Rollie Heath, D-Boulder, listen. Photo by Vic Vela gun debates from last session, ones that led to emotionallycharged testimony and marathon committee hearings and floor votes. “We’re ready to move forward in Colorado and solve the problems that people are telling us we need to solve,” said House Speaker Mark Ferrandino, D-Denver. “We don’t need to rehash the same fights we fought over last year.” But Democrats won’t have much a choice. Besides gun legislation, Cadman said that his party will introduce bills that seek “fixes” to an election reform bill last session, one that created same-day voter registration in Colorado. Also, look for a bill from House Republicans that would scale back legislation signed into law last year, which doubled the renewable-energy mandate for rural electric cooperatives. “Since it passed, the passion from the people in rural Colorado about how it’s going to be detrimental to them has not let up,” said House Minority Leader Brian DelGrosso, R-Loveland. “If the rural peoples’ voice is wanting to be beard, I hope that Ferrandino and his crew will at least take a look at that.” The House GOP will introduce a slate of bills that would reduce regulations on small businesses and will focus on helping economies in rural communities, DelGrosso said. DelGrosso said that last year’s session was more “left-centric” than what Coloradans had bargained for. He said that voters’ resentment over major pieces of Democrat-sponsored legislation was apparent during the recall election losses by Senate President John Morse of Colorado Springs and Angela Giron of Pueblo. Evie Hudak of Westminster resigned rather than face her own recall attempt. “I think some of the gun debate obviously started that, but I think overall the folks that were voting in the recall election were like, ‘I don’t think the people representing us were focusing on us,’” DelGrosso said. Ferrandino rejects that assertion. He said that gun background checks are working and that the voices among Colorado’s rural community are being heard. The House speaker pointed to legislation passed last year that provided grants to help rural communities diversify their economies and a separate bill that created a health and social services center inside Bent County’s Fort Lyon Correctional Facility.

Task Force Continued from Page 1

about 1983 because she, a Franktown resident, was in Castle Rock one day when she saw Rudolph and a pickup of things. She found out what Rudolph did and how she was preparing that day to move the growing operation from her garage to a small building located in the 100 block of South Wilcox Street behind the Castle Rock Motel. And she found out Rudolph needed helping moving, and she pitched in, and then never stopped pitching in. “I’m no stranger to helping,” said Huydts, who grew up in Littleton during Great Depression years. “It was bred into me.” She said her dad, employed as a machinist farmed on a neighbor’s land in his spare time and gave away vegetables to people who needed them. Her mom would cook extra supper and have the kids take it to neighbors she knew needed a hot meal. Huydts said in Rudolph’s new space behind the motel, they had clothing, like socks for a nickel a pair, but didn’t have food to offer or enough cash to help people pay rent, like the task force tries to do now. At one point, to keep the struggling operation going, Rudolph, Huydts and a couple of others, donated $150 each — which she said equated to about $1,000 each at that time. The task force has since moved a couple more times to bigger spaces — and the budget has changed. Roos said the task force now has a $1.6 million annual budget — and 200 unpaid volunteers as well as two paid fulltime staff members, Suzanne Greene, executive director, and Christie Sbarra, store manager, and 10 paid part-time staff

Ferrandino also reminded his Republican colleagues that debate was never cut off last year, on any issue. “I’ve made a concerted effort to make sure everybody has a voice,” the House speaker said. “Just because you don’t get your way doesn’t mean your voice isn’t being heard. While it’s a good talking point for the other side, the facts don’t support that assertion.” Ferrandino said that the first priority of the House will be to work on flood and wildfire legislation, which should come with strong bipartisan support. Senate President Morgan Carroll, D-Aurora, said the first bill out the Senate aims to curb escalating college tuition costs that are “crippling a generation of opportunity for kids.” Carroll also previewed legislation that seeks reduce the financial burden on parents for child care costs. Carroll said that she expects legislation on oil and gas industry regulations. She said there is “a good chance” that the Senate will pass legislation that died last year, which would raise fines on companies for toxic spills. Carroll is not naïve to the new reality in the Senate. Because of the recall election efforts, her party’s majority has been reduced to a single vote. She is hopeful that Senate Republicans will support many Democratic bills, but acknowledges that some battles will be difficult. “The 18-17 vote really matters,” she said. Carroll hopes the two sides can move beyond partisan politics this session. “The people really are sick of bickering,” she said. “They’re sick of partisan mudslinging. They’re tired of excuses. They frankly don’t want to hear it. They don’t want to know who is to blame for what; they just want us to get the job done.” Meanwhile, Cadman insists that his party isn’t over-estimating Coloradans’ “outcry” from last year, by trying to undo laws that are already on the books. “We’re not proposing legislation based on reactions,” he said. “We are proposing legislation based on fixing the things we think (Democrats) did wrong. So it’s not a popularity contest. This about doing what we feel is right and, frankly, correcting what we feel was wrong. Period.”

members. Roos said about 10 percent of the budget covers administration costs and that they serve 16,000 clients every year. “The vast majority goes directly to clients,” he said, about the task force’s services which can include helping to pay rent and utilities and providing food, clothing and household items. He said the task force’s thrift shop generates about 25 percent of the revenues for the task force’s budget. But donations are crucial. For those who want to donate, the best way is cash, he said. For every $1 donated, the task force can buy $3.69 worth of food from the Food Bank of the Rockies. He said the task force’s mission is to be a “first responder… helping neighbors whose lives are turned upside get back on track.” Concert proceeds will help fund the $425,000 renovation of the task force’s 17,000-square-foot building, the former Church of the Rock building at 1638 Park St. The project includes turning part of the building’s 4,000-square-feet of unfinished space into a more private area to receive clients, and creating more finished space to accept donations. Other improvements include adding a sprinkler system in the building, a new heating and air conditioning system, new awnings, installation and new windows. Firefall’s original lead singer and guitarist, Jock Bartley, recently toured the task force’s facility so he could see what they’re singing for, Roos said. Roos said they’re holding the concert in February because the task force “is the best love story in Douglas and Elbert counties.” The four-hour event will start at 3 p.m. Feb. 16 at the Douglas Events Center at the Douglas County Fairgrounds, 500 Fairgrounds Drive, Castle Rock.

Judge’s ruling may impact allegations Attorney for nonprofit says 2013 review showed organization in compliance By Jane Reuter

jreuter@coloradocommunitymedia.com

Three Douglas County residents who believe the Douglas County Educational Foundation violated its nonprofit status say a Denver judge’s recent ruling against the school district adds teeth to their allegations. An attorney for the DCEF says the organization did not cross any such lines. The foundation is the Douglas County School ulder, District’s nonprofit fundraising arm. Administrative Law Judge Hollyce Farrell ruled Dec. 24 that DCSD violated the state’s Fair Campaign Practices Act by using district funds to pay for a September 2013 report complimenting its reforms. Half of the money used to pay for Rick Hess’ white paper, “The Most Interesting School District in America?” came from DCSD, the other half from the DCEF. The DCEF also paid $50,000 to former U.S. Secretary of Education Bill Bennett for a speech and separate white paper. In both, Bennett praised the reform efforts. Farrell found insufficient evidence to conclude public funds were used when the DCEF paid for the Bennett report. However, her ruling in the case filed by unsuccessful school board candidate Julie Keim concluded, “Dr. Bennett’s report was an endorsement for the district’s reform agenda, and was intended to influence the outcome of the board election.” Bennett’s paper refers to the current district leaders’ “unanimous control of the board,” and its ability to “proceed full speed ahead virtually unfettered by opposition.” Hess’ paper includes a section on “electing a reform board” and profiles of current board members. “DougCo is a compelling illustration of how a unified board majority can fuel rapid, ambitious reform,” he wrote. Meg Masten, Susan Arnold and Bob Kaser — a former DCEF chairman — filed complaints with the Internal Revenue Ser-

vice alleging improper behavior by the district’s nonprofit fundraising arm. Masten and Arnold, whose filings allege the DCEF engaged in political campaigning as well as deceptive and improper fundraising practices by the foundation, said Farrell’s ruling bolsters their cases. “We absolutely feel it gives some added strength to the complaints we filed,” Arnold said. She and Masten recently filed the new information with the IRS, adding to their original complaints. But DCEF attorney Jon Anderson said his law firm performed an independent review of the foundation’s legal compliance in 2013. “Our review included consideration of the Dr. William Bennett report,” Anderson wrote in a Jan. 3 email. “We found that the Bennett report did not qualify as political activity under any of the IRS guideline factors. Our review concluded with a finding that DCEF is in full compliance with Internal Revenue Service regulations and applicable guidelines. According to the Internal Revenue Service, 501 (c) (3) organizations like the DCEF “are absolutely prohibited from directly or indirectly participating” in any political campaign on behalf of any candidate for public office. Additionally, the IRS states that “voter education or registration activities with evidence of bias that … have the effect of favoring a candidate or group of candidates will constitute prohibited participation or intervention.” That prohibition applies to verbal and written public statements, and could cost the offending organization its nonprofit status. The president of the Colorado Nonprofit Association, Renny Fagen, said he was not familiar enough with the issues in Douglas County to comment specifically. But he said loss of nonprofit status for campaign violations “would be uncommon.” According to the National Council of Nonprofits, “Loss of tax-exemption could have disastrous consequences for a nonprofit organization,” including the requirement to pay corporate income tax, potential back taxes and penalties and inability for donors to receive tax deductions.

in a Jan. 3 email that Hammelman’s resignation “is a result of RMGO’s grassroots pressure against his motion to expand the open carry ban.” Hammelman and his wife, Carol, moved to Castle Rock in 2004 after he retired from a 30-year career in public policy and business. Before serving on the town council, Clark served for five years on the town’s planning commission. He also has served on the Downtown Advisory Commission and Sign Ordinance Working Group.

opinions / yours and ours

Recreational rollout brings uncertainty Green Wednesday rung in and checked out, and various news reports recounted a rough estimate of $1 million taken in at local marijuana shops. The rollout of recreational marijuana on Jan. 1 was accurately described as mellow. Those who were happy to purchase legally at long last had no resemblance to revved up sports fans celebrating a championship. Instead they had satisfied grins and walked calmly. While many locals have poo-pooed the idea that Colorado will become the country’s Amsterdam, we cringed when national news reports suddenly seemed to entertain the perspective. That is not how we see Colorado. We know there is much work to be done and much to iron out with recreational marijuana. In our circles, many of those who are not thrilled with the passage of Amendment

our view 64, have conceded they are pleased law enforcement will not spend as much time with minor marijuana violations any longer. But it’s a consolation in a mix of concerns. Those who support the passage say they are relieved to finally have the legal right to do something that is not that harmful and does have some medicinal benefits. They say it’s the American way of individual freedom to have the choice, and point out that the taxes collected will further benefit the state. While there are countless legal and procedural wrinkles to iron out, we urge a focus on health and safety as a high priority.

letters to the editor obama finally takes a stand

Our president has, at last, finally stood up for what he really supports. We’re all curious what it could be. Maybe it’s decreasing unemployment, as he is always talking about jobs. No, that’s not it, as he has done nothing to alleviate the 41 percent unemployment of black youth. Perhaps it’s health care, as he is always saying how good Obamacare is. No, that can’t be it because millions of people have lost their health insurance and the Obama regime refuses to let them keep their old policies permanently. Aha, it must be education, right. Obama’s big on education. Wrong again. The Huffington Post reports that Obama has turned loose Attorney General Eric Holder to shut down the Louisiana school voucher program that helped many disadvantaged black students get a good education. The Louisiana Black Alliance For Education Options is fighting to help these children in distress. So if Obama isn’t really interested in decreasing unemployment, good health insurance, or education, what is his passion? Incredibly, it’s Iran. Obama has stoutly supported Iran by threatening to veto a bipartisan Senate bill that would use sanctions to curtail Iran’s building of a nuclear bomb. When you want to veto your own party, you are really passionate about your stand. No matter that all our allies in the Mideast are against this, so much so that Saudi Arabia is looking at buying nukes from Pakistan and partnering with Israel. Any thinking person has to wonder why Obama wants to coddle Iran, yet ignores black unemployment, good current health coverage, and education for under privileged children. Maybe that’s the problem. Those that voted for Obama weren’t thinking. Charles Newton Highlands Ranch

illegal behavior needs accountability

I just cut a Box Top for Education out of a cereal box to earn a few cents for my children’s school. It is mid-year, so I expect to get a second request for school supplies soon, too. Meanwhile, the district office continues to waste money on advancing their political agenda, while breaking the law in the process. The Douglas County School District has just been found guilty of violating the Fair Campaign Practices Act by hiring a consultant to write a favorable report about the district, then disseminating it to 85,000 people as if it was an independently written report, thereby influencing voters. Not only was that illegal, but it cost taxpayers tens of thousands of dollars that should be spent in our classrooms. The district paid for the writing of the report, then paid outside legal counsel to defend their illegal act. Now they are promising to appeal, which will cost thousands more in legal fees, in addition to the hours spent by district personnel obtaining the report and defending their actions. I am disgusted that our school district would stoop to dishonest behavior to win an election and waste taxpayer dollars in the process, instead of concentrating on educating our children and providing them the

tools they need to learn. Responsibility, honesty, and respect are some of the character traits my children’s school strives to instill in its students. I would expect to see those traits in the people in charge of the schools. All district officials who were involved in this deceit should lose their jobs. As taxpayers, they work for us and need to be held accountable. Kathleen Boyer Highlands Ranch

to unite requires action

The day after the election the newly elected school board members promised they would try to reunite our community. Unfortunately, their actions thus far prove otherwise. Tens of thousands of taxpayer dollars have now been spent on legal fees to defend the school board’s misuse of taxpayer dollars in the November campaign. All of this money should have gone to classrooms. The school board has vowed to appeal this decision — which will cost more taxpayer dollars. If the school board truly wanted to unite us as a community, they would stop squandering our money on lawyers, campaigns, outside interests, or anything else that does not directly help the students in our community and put that money back where it belongs: In the classroom. If the school board truly wanted to unite us as a community, they would immediately stop any further legal action and instead listen to parents and their concerns, and then try to alleviate them in meaningful ways. In addition, if the school board truly wanted to unite us as a community, they would not hold so much of their meetings in private council. If the school board truly wanted to unite us as a community, they would focus on the children in our community, not on personal political agendas. Unfortunately, the new school board has done none of that. They say they want to unite us. I say: Prove it. Christina Marriott Highlands Ranch

if you don’t have something nice to say

Re: Michael Norton’s Jan. 2 column Mr. Norton, One of the phrases in your column, “If you don’t have something nice to say, don’t say anything at all” brought back a memory from a stand-up comedian who appeared on the Ed Sullivan show back in the early 1960s. Her name was Moms Mabley. She was talking about a nasty uncle who had recently passed away. She was commenting on how he was not a very nice person and then she suddenly stopped and said, “You know what they say. If you can’t say something good about a person, then you shouldn’t say anything at all. Well, he’s dead…good.” I have no idea why I remember that. Good article on flattery, Michael. Michael H. Kennedy Centennial

Now that marijuana has entered the realm of legal drugs, we look forward to more and more detailed research to outline the pros and cons of marijuana use. Our friend Joe Citizen can break it down to say that marijuana is more or less harmful than tobacco and alcohol — an exercise with questionable value. Marijuana categorically falls in the potentially harmful column. The bottom lines are that smoking is smoking, and people who smoke marijuana draw the smoke deeply into their lungs. Moreover, marijuana affects driving ability. And to say it plain, all three choices can bring great harm to teens in the throes of brain development and finding their way in the world. As surely as secondhand smoke will be more prevalent, it follows that with marijuana, with its new legal status, will often more easily fall into the hands of the young teens.

So we ask that smokers smoke smart, all adults walk straight lines, and parents take further steps by talking and educating their children. A drug is a drug, so children should be encouraged to keep their “just say no” mindsets. We are concerned. How will Colorado fare? Will this recreational diversion be a drag on the state’s reputation in clean energy and quest to improve its education system? Will the state strike the right balance? Will we work well with our neighboring states? It will take a while for the best research to be distilled and crafted into spiffy, pithy messages along the lines of no smoking warnings we have experienced through the years. Messages that make the sobering dangers clear — just as the warnings about tobacco have done — is a wide-open public service opportunity.

Huh? Just turn down that bass The car next to you at the red light is throbbing with bass. What do you do? Do you throb with bass too? Not me. I don’t want to wind up like Pete Townsend and have to say “Huh?” for the rest of my life. There’s really not much you can do. You risk a lot if your give him the finger or even glare. Chances are it’s someone under 21 whose insurance rates have been climbing after a series of motoring incidents. The five and a half years he spent in high school were far out. And mom and dad never said a word to him about civility. Our highways are very democratic. You have as much right to them if you are a dolt as you do if you are on your way to give a lecture to a graduate seminar at DU. You may be the pick of the pack at home or at work, but in between, on the streets, you are just another motorist. We already have a lane for high occupancy vehicles. (Which, by the way, means two. Does that sound like high occupancy to you?) I think it would be wonderful if we could further distinguish motoring lanes. For example: a high-IQ occupancy lane. How about a lane for anyone who doesn’t wear his pants lower than his underwear? A lane just for UCLA alumni would be fine with me. A lane for anyone who doesn’t talk with their hands.

A lane for anyone who doesn’t pull their soup. A lane for anyone who knows that a medium-sized cumulus cloud weighs about the same as 80 elephants. The dog and I are sitting there at the light today, next to AC/DC. I wondered if he knows that Angus Young is a big Louis Armstrong fan. Probably not. It’s rarely a girl. It’s never someone my age. Unless they throbbed the bass when they were much younger, and maybe now they do have to crank it too. A Zen Buddhist friend of mine would say, “Sometimes the best thing to do is nothing.” I try to keep that in mind, especially when AC/DC turns into Aerosmith. I wonder if he knows that Joe Perry manufactures condiments. Probably not. It might make a difference if the music were any good, but it never is. It’s never Django Reinhart. It’s never Miles Davis. It’s never Chopin. It’s always Motorhead. Smith continues on Page 9

Washington can learn from Colorado For many Americans, 2013 was an eventful year. For Coloradans, it tested our resilience, our courage and our willpower. We fought the most destructive wildfire in our history (Black Forest), as well one of the largest (West Fork), only to be hit by unprecedented flooding less than three months later. Meanwhile, farmers in the southeastern corner of our state endured months of unending drought that has crippled their harvests and threatened their livelihood. And as the year came to a close another high school was left rattled by senseless and horrible violence. Coloradans, as usual, showed their mettle and have come together in every corner of the state to support one another, recover, rebuild, and carry on. Unfortunately, the same isn’t true of Congress. The first session of the 113th Congress has been called one of the least effective in the history of the United States. Partisan gridlock has halted progress on a variety of issues critical to Colorado’s success, including immigration, education, and a national food and

farming policy. Most frustrating was the manufactured government shutdown that left thousands without a paycheck and reduced our gross domestic product by $24 billion. But in true Colorado fashion, our delegation — Democrats and Republicans — found ways to work together and put Colorado first. While we didn’t agree on every issue, in times of crisis we worked across the aisle to make sure federal resources were available for rescue, recovery and rebuilding efforts. As of early December, we secured more than $136 million in grants and low-interest loans to help Coloradans in areas affected by the floods. We also

secured nearly $20 million in Emergency Watershed Protection Funding to fund watershed conservation and erosion prevention for communities recovering from the High Park and Waldo Canyon Fires. The delegation also pushed Congress to maintain the Payment in Lieu of Taxes (PILT) program that helps our local communities offset losses in property taxes due to nontaxable federal land. PILT payments help counties provide critical services, such as police, fire protection, emergency response, and infrastructure. And we worked with the Natural Resources Conservation Service to preserve funding for the USDA’s Snow Survey and Water Supply Forecasting Program. It measures Colorado’s snowpack, providing essential information for water managers who must know how much water they can expect in the coming months. For avid hikers in southern Colorado, we were able to trim bureaucracy to help “officially” legalize the Manitou Incline for public use. Now thousands of outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy the pleasure of surmounting this popular and legendary vertical mile trail.

Big issues wait for us in this new year. Among them, we need to pass a Farm Bill to provide Colorado’s farmers and ranchers with the security, stability, and resources they need to continue providing food, fuel and fiber for the country. We need to fix our broken immigration system to secure or borders, strengthen our economy and create a path forward for immigrants living in the shadows. And we need to develop a bipartisan budget plan that materially reduces the deficit and puts our country on a more sustainable fiscal path. If Washington can learn from the example Colorado has set, we will have the opportunity get back to work for the American people and to begin to meet the challenges facing our nation. My new year’s resolution is to remain committed to working with any Republican or Democrat who wants to find thoughtful, innovative solutions that will ensure our competitiveness and leadership in the 21st century. Democrat Michael Bennet has represented Colorado in the U.S. Senate since 2009.

Focus on hearing with your heart and be sincere So last week I talked about the importance of speaking kindly and lovingly to one another, sincere flattery, and being intentional in our effort to show how we truly feel. That was the “speaking” part, but what happens when it comes to listening to what is being said to us, and actually hearing it? Too often I witness a game of verbal ping-pong. You know the game where one person offers a compliment and the recipient feels like they must say something nice in return. And then the game begins, a back-and-forth, to-and-fro endless string of niceties shared with one another. If truly sincere, it is a loving and awesome display to watch. If it is just chatter, I hate to be the bearer of the bad and obvious news, the insincerity is very clear to everyone around, including the two people in the game. Let’s challenge the thinking a little bit here. What if, and I am just saying what if, the person who receives the first compliment and listens with their ears, lets it settle in, and truly hears it with their heart? Perhaps what might have started as a cordial conversation just to say something nice, could actually turn into a meaningful discussion between two or more people where everyone feels good about the outcome. Something good can come from every-

Every time this happens I feel a little older. I look in the rear view mirror and see my life back there, back when I might have had the Yardbirds turned up. What if a kid in the car next to me were listening to “Heart Full of Soul”? Maybe I would give him a pass. I don’t like bass to begin with. I zero it out in my car and in my home. If I want a pounding sensation in my head, I’ll just use a rubber mallet.

thing and every encounter. The problem is that too often we want to rush in and compete in the conversation and feel it necessary to say something nice back to the other person. What if we were a little more patient in our response? What if we listened with our ears and heard it, really heard it with our hearts? We just might realize that the other person has said something profound and is truly trying to be sincere and nice. When we rush right back into it with our own compliment, we may even hurt their feelings as they feel like we didn’t take the time to appreciate what it is that they actually said. Listening with our ears and hearing with our hearts really are two different things. When we only listen with our ears we sometimes rush to judgment or feel the need to start the volley of verbal pingpong. When we hear with our hearts, we

are looking at the other person beyond what it is we see at face value. And we look for ways to thank them, maybe even ask more questions about their compliment or their intentions. Flattery will get you everywhere, sincere flattery that is. And when we learn to hear with our hearts for the positive attitude, good-natured intentions, and sincere compliment we will begin to enjoy a much healthier relationship with all of those around us. And for those of you who just have a hard time accepting a compliment, this is definitely the advice for you. Listen with your ears, but slow down and hear things with your heart. You will come to accept accolades and praises with much greater ease.

So in 2014 let’s focus on speaking loving, kind, and sincere sentiments to one another, and at the same time, let’s focus on hearing those very same kind and loving words with our hearts and not just our ears. I would love to hear all about your commitment to make 2014 a year of speaking kind words and hearing with your hearts at gotonorton@gmail.com, because when you apply both to your life, each and every week will be a better than good week.

Local team excels at Robot Olympiad Research facility possible in Douglas County By Hannah Garcia

hgarcia@coloradocommunitymedia.com After hauling away 22 awards from December’s International Robot Olympiad, the volunteers behind the Ameribotics team only have eyes for the future. “For the number of kids we brought to competition, statistically these were huge wins,” said Randy Menzer, executive director of the Douglas-County based nonprofit. “This is the first year we’ve won a gold medal.” It has been a steep climb to success, Menzer said. The organization went from bringing six participants to competition in Jakarta, Indonesia three years ago to 32 participants and 22 medals — including four gold — this year. This was the first time the global robotics competition was held on U.S. soil, a four-day event held at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver with 13 categories, typically

dominated by competitors from China and South Korea, according to organizers. Menzer started lobbying three years ago to bring the competition to North America. The competition combines elements of engineering and science, as well as artistic components with categories like “robot movie” and “robot dance.” It is thought of as the “Super Bowl of robotics,” according to volunteer Steve Mahoney. “These kids could be working on 3D imaging at Pixar or the next group of Imagineers at Disney,” Mahoney said. Now that the Olympiad is over, Menzer said the organization has a list of priorities to tackle for the duration of 2014 and beyond, including building on a partnership with the Highlands Ranch Community Association and building a robotics lab and research facility somewhere along the I-25 corridor in Douglas County in the next five years. Menzer calls this vision a “robotics incubator,” an answer to future economic opportunities as well as a deficit in STEM education in the U.S. Menzer also mentioned the possi-

bility of an academy for foreign students. “No one really connects Colorado with robotics, but there’s this opportunity to make this a kind of hub,” he said. “This is about solving real-world problems, taking kids from being consumers of technology — posting on Facebook, tweeting — to the other end of the spectrum, and creating that technology.” Ameribotics also plans to start hosting summer camps and workshops some time this year, working with the HRCA for use of facilities. The partnership will provide a common place for students from multiple schools, Menzer said.

Book details life of adventure, despite cancer Castle Rock author describes how he and wife lived good life By Virginia Grantier

vgrantier@coloradocommunitymedia. com They were both 14, high school freshmen in Wauseon, Ohio, when they first dated, then reconnected in college, and ended up being married for almost 30 years — and for the majority of those years, Ron Richards’ wife had cancer. And one of their children had emotional and medical problems. And at one point Richards had cancer. But the Castle Rock resident said recently that through it all it was mainly a life of adventure and positiveness and optimism, even though there was adversity — because he and his wife, Sara Richards, were determined that’s what it would be. And so they made it that way. And now he’s written a book about it and will give a short talk at a 2 to 4 p.m. Jan. 18 local-authors showcase at Philip S. Miller Library, 100 S. Wilcox St. Sara died in 2005. But before she did, she gave Ron an assignment to write a book about their life together — how adversity “doesn’t have to bring you down,” he recalled she said to him. “We’ve had so many wonderful adventures, despite the challenges and issues we’ve faced,” she told him. “People need to know that. We have to help them understand that living with those challenges

doesn’t mean you have to lead a life filled with negativity. I have no doubt that you’re the best person to tell our story.” Richards — a former sportswriter who moved on to public relations and Richards sporting-events planning for major brewing companies — now has his own communications business in the home he shares with his second wife and stepdaughter. But he also decided recently to take on writing the book, finally, which he titled, “Dodging Dandelions.” Richards, 61, called it that because of what a doctor said after Sara was first diagnosed with breast cancer and they asked the doctor about her prognosis. He told them that after finding a dandelion in a yard, you can dig it out or use chemicals, but that chances are “as time goes by, more dandelions will appear … I would be surprised if you weren’t always fighting off dandelions.” Richards said that after dating in high school they went separate ways — he to the University of Toledo and she to Colorado State University. But they decided they didn’t want to be apart and so he eventually transferred to CSU and completed a journalism degree. They married in 1975 and had a son in 1981 and she was first diagnosed with cancer in 1983. He remembers what Sara — whom he describes as a pragmatic, exceptionally resilient person who’d been raised on a

dairy farm — said after the first diagnosis of cancer. “We won’t let this ruin our lives…And we won’t let it run our lives, either. I’ll do what I have to fight it but I will not let cancer control our lives,” she told him. He said they often used humor — like calling a Friday night trip to the hospital a “date.” After she had a mastectomy, they moved to Albuquerque for work, eventually moved back to Colorado and adopted a daughter. Then Ron Richards accepted a job in Wisconsin, doing sports marketing for Miller Brewing Co. She was to join him at the end of the school year. But in 1989, more cancer, a lump in the chest area, had to be removed and then there was radiation. Then he moved on to a new job in Detroit, where Sara in 1999 had another round of cancer, this time tumors in the liver. In 2000, it was his turn — kidney cancer. Then in 2001, a tumor was discovered in Sara’s brain. At one point, the couple had a whole year to travel and see friends because Richards’ employer at the time — Championship Auto Racing Teams, an Indy Car racing sanctioning organization in Detroit — gave him a year’s salary and benefits, and a directive to enjoy the time and use it as the retirement that he and Sara would never be able to have.

Tropical Smoothie grows

Tropical Smoothie Café, known for its healthy food with a tropical twist, entered the Colorado market in October 2013 with the opening of its café in the Denver Tech Center at 5332 DTC Blvd., Greenwood Village. The second café opened on Nov. 29 at the Streets at Southglenn, 6955 S. York St., Centennial. A third location will open in early 2014 in the Centennial Promenade on County Line Road. Husband and wife franchisee team, Michelle and Kriss Shriver, currently own and operate three cafés in Nevada and the “Franchisee of the Year” winners recently bought the rights for the franchise in Colorado. Tropical Smoothie Café should prove to be a welcome newcomer to the “leanest state in the nation.” The smoothies are made from real fruit and natural sugar. The menu includes toasted wraps, bistro sandwiches, grilled flatbreads and gourmet salads made fresh-to-order. All nutritional information is displayed on the café’s countertops so that customers know what they are ordering. While Tropical Smoothie Café is a national franchise, the Shrivers’ focus is local. “We are passionate about education and plan on holding ongoing fundraisers for schools. We are also dedicated to raising money for and promoting awareness of Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB), a rare skin disorder that causes extreme skin fragility. We were so happy to be able to use our recent grand opening as a way to shed some light on this little known disease.” At the opening, the Shrivers presented a check for $3,000 to Children’s Hospital Colorado’s EB Clinic, which was accepted by Krystle Martinez, whose 4-year-old son, Darren, has the disease and attends the CHC’s EB Clinic.

In Germany, through frequent museum visits, she absorbed the works of the Blaue Reiter group (Kandinsky, Munter and others), which has influenced her work ever since in the free composition, linear quality and intense color that characterize her works through the years. She studied in Mexico, soaking up color contrasts there, and returned to Germany. While traveling in Germany, she met Carle Zimmerman, her future husband and great supporter, whom she married in the United States in 1959. The couple moved to Ithaca New York, where both engaged in graduate work at Cornell University. They moved to Littleton in 1963, where he worked as an engineer with Marathon Oil until the research center was closed. Both were involved in civic affairs. They began to raise a family, including a son and daughter, maintained a Littleton home and a mountain cabin in Como. At this period, her paintings were primarily watercolors, as she climbed high peaks and was exhilarated by the dramatic landscapes before her. She still paints in Como in summer (en plein air) and in her lightfilled Littleton studio with a view of the Front Range in winter. She writes that she is connected with the

Colorado Business Bank is the corporate sponsor of the Leading Edge Strategic Planning Series Program.

South Metro Denver Chamber Hosts Annual Legislative Reception On Wednesday, December 18, 2013 the South Metro Denver Chamber hosted its annual legislative reception. The event, held in the atrium at Columbia College’s Aurora campus, was attended by more than 50 business leaders from the south metro area and 7 state legislators. The program began with a toast delivered by Andrew Graham, owner of Clinic Service. Senators Linda Newell (D-Littleton) and David Balmer (R-Centennial) joined Representatives Angela Williams (D-Denver), Chris Holbert (R-Parker), Polly Lawrence (R-Roxborough), Daniel Kagan (D-Cherry Hills / Englewood), and Spencer Swalm (R-Centennial) to provide a recap of the 2013 legislative session and a preview of the 2014 legislative session. Major themes included job creation and easing the burden on small businesses. John Brackney, President & CEO of the South Metro Denver Chamber applauded the legislators’ bipartisan tone. “We were all encouraged to see how much these legislators respect each other and we urge them to work together throughout the session for the benefit of our state.” Jeff Wasden, the Chamber’s Vice-Chair of Public Affairs echoed those sentiments and expressed the gratitude of the business community for the legislators’ service to South Metro Denver. Carol Braverman, co-owner of Mountaintop Acupuncture, enjoyed both the presenters and those present: “[It was] so interesting to hear each legislator’s achievements and upcoming agendas, and the attendees were equally engaging.” The Chamber thanks the event’s presenting sponsor Clinic Service, venue sponsor Columbia College, and catering sponsor Sava Catering.

JAGUARS OPEN 2014 WITH WIN New coach thrilled with senior leadership By Tom Munds

tmunds@coloradocommunitymedia.com Becky Mudd’s Rock Canyon squad granted the coach’s wish for a win to start out 2014, as the Jaguars outscored Denver East, 60-53, in non-league girls basketball action on Jan. 4 “We were playing well before the break and need to play well today,” Mudd said before the game, emphasizing her wish for a W. The victory raises Rock Canyon’s record to 5-2 and the game was just the second loss of the season for Denver East. The Jaguars now return to regular practice sessions as they prepare for five road games in a row — Rampart on Jan. 10, Palmer on Jan. 11, Thomas Jefferson on Jan. 13, Ponderosa on Jan. 17 and Mountain Vista on Jan. 21. The Jaguars next home game is a league contest Jan. 28 against Legend. The Rock Canyon-Denver East game was a fast-paced contest from the opening tipoff until the final buzzer. The teams traded baskets early but the Jaguars went on a six-point run late in the period to take a 13-9 lead by the end of the first quarter. Denver East pushed the ball hard at every opportunity, looking for fast-break opportunities. However, the Angels usually found Rock Canyon defenders cutting off the lanes to the hoop. Rock Canyon’s balanced inside-outside

Coach Becky Mudd points out where she wants a player to move during Rock Canyon’s Jan. 4 girls basketball game against Denver East. This is Mudd’s 20th season coaching girls basketball but her first year as head coach and her first year at Rock Canyon. Photo by Tom Munds attack helped the team extend its lead to 46-35 by the end of the third quarter en route to the 60-53 win. The Jaguars also used their height advantage to block nine shots and pull down a total of 44 rebounds. Lexy Thorderson paced the Jaguar attack with a double double, scoring 31 points that included hitting five threepointers and pulling down 12 rebounds. Morgan Roos added eight points and blocked six shots while teammate Kendall Koslosky scored six points and had nine

rebounds. Kendall Smith was the team assist leader with six. “I think you could tell we were a little rusty after the holiday break but we pushed through and got the win,” Thorderson said after the game. “I just shoot when I am open and that includes when I am open for three-pointers. I like the long shots but I also like to drive to the basket because there is a chance I’ll make the shot, get fouled and it’ll be a three-point play for us that way.”

The senior played other sports earlier in her prep career but this year is focusing only on basketball as she will play at San Diego State University next year. “I need to work on my ball handling skills and my inside post game,” she said. “I do pretty well defensively but I can always improve there and I can get better in being in the right spot to get the rebounds.” Jaguars continues on Page 15

Arapahoe returns home, grabs victory Warriors remain unbeaten with win over Mountain Vista By Jim Benton

jbenton@coloradocommunitymedia.com Brendan Till was happy to see the familiar surroundings of the Sitting Eagle gym and made sure the Arapahoe boys basketball team had a successful homecoming. Till scored a game-high 26 points, including 10 in the critical fourth quarter, as seventh-ranked Arapahoe defeated No. 5 Mountain Vista 63-55 in a Jan. 4 nonleague showdown between two unbeaten teams. It was the first time the Warriors had been in the Arapahoe gym for 23 days since the Dec. 13 shooting tragedy. “I had the flow going,” said Till. “It was good to be back ... We were playing in front of our own fans and we had a great turnout. Just being home was a big deal. It was a step back to normalcy.” Since the shooting, Arapahoe had been practicing at nearby Lifetime Fitness. “We had not been on this court since Dec. 12,” explained Warriors coach Dan Snyder. “That’s really hard. Lifetime could not have been more wonderful and gracious and we really appreciate it but it’s not the same as practicing here. We were on a court with two hoops instead of six hoops. So as far as running a practice and stations and stuff like that, you can’t do it. “I’m proud of the kids because of their resiliency. I made the comment that we’re fortunate to be practicing anywhere. So we’re not going to complain about the circumstances. … We’re really happy to be back in our own building. Regardless of the situation of the last few weeks, the energy level of this group is really good.” Down 49-48 with 4:40 to play in the game, Arapahoe outscored the Golden Eagles 15-6. The Warriors, guilty of seven turnovers in the first quarter, had just 10 the rest of the way and employed a zone defense down the stretch which seemed to baffle Mountain Vista, which came into the

game scoring 85.1 points per game. “We had great energy,” said Till. “Turnovers definitely caused some problems in the first half. We crashed the boards offensively and defensively. I don’t think we had a single offensive rebound in the first half. So it was aggressive intensity on both sides that won the game.” Till, a 6-foot-2 senior, scored nine of Arapahoe’s first 11 points in the fourth quarter that started with the game tied at 44-all. He finished with a free throw to account for the Warriors’ eight-point triumph. “He had a tremendous game,” said Snyder. “He can score in a lot of different ways. He’s really a good shooter and he sees the court really well. That allows him to go to the right spot at the right time so it’s more than just being a good shooter.” Arapahoe sank five of six free throws in the final 1:08 to stall any possible Mountain Vista comeback. The Warriors went 14 for 16 at the foul line for the game. “I was happy with how well we executed in the fourth quarter and obviously we hit some shots,” added Snyder. “The zone seemed to work. They were hurting us so bad getting to the basket against our manto-man. In the scouting we had done, they are so good in transition, they shoot a ton of layups every game.” In addition to Till, Corbin Atwell scored 16 points while James Dalrymple and Ethan Brunhofer each had eight for the Warriors. Graham Smith had 17 points and 10 rebounds to lead Mountain Vista, which committed 19 turnovers including six in the final quarter. The Golden Eagles missed five 3-point attempts in the final 35 seconds. Mountain Vista’s leading scorer Jake Pemberton had only five points with all of them coming in the first half. “Arapahoe is a good team,” said Mountain Vista coach Bob Wood. “They were aggressive on defense and we didn’t execute very well against (their zone). “Inside of four minutes if you turn the Warriors continues on Page 15

Chaparral turns it over against top teams Wolverines rebound well, but drop fifth straight By Jim Benton

jbenton@coloradocommunitymedia.com The Chaparral boys basketball team returned from its winter break, hoping turnover woes had become a thing of the past. After losing four pre-holiday games to athletic, pressing teams in the Mission Prep Christmas Classic played in San Luis Obispo, Calif., the Wolverines returned home to host sixth-ranked Eaglecrest Jan. 3 in a non-league game. The Raptors’ pressure in the third quarter was too much, sparking a 20-7 surge in the stanza that broke open a previously tight game as Eaglecrest prevailed, 60-52, to deal the Wolverines their fifth straight setback. “It happened again, it was the same type of pressure we saw in California, fast and athletic,” said Chaparral coach Rob Johnson. “It’s

tough on them. They’re going to have to figure it out or we’re going to struggle.” Chaparral, which entered the Eaglecrest contest averaging 16.6 turnovers a game, rebounded well and committed eight first half turnovers, grabbing a 29-27 halftime lead. However, the Wolverines turned the ball over 12 times in the second half, and a missed dunk and layup helped key a 9-0 Raptor run early in the third period as the visitors went ahead by 12 points late in the decisive period. “We had eight turnovers which were a couple too many in the first half but we’re just struggling with pressure and I think we were a little out of shape,” explained Johnson. “Our main guys that need to be out there were getting tired. We were turning it over and (our) rebounding went down in the second half. We still had a good game rebounding overall but the first half was definitely much better.” Chaparral, which shot 33 percent from the field, outrebounded the Raptors 46-22 and was led by junior Chase Coon’s 13 points. Hayden Dalton, a 6-foot-7 senior, added 10

points and 15 rebounds. Junior Jake Holtzmann also had a doubledouble with 10 points and 10 rebounds and junior Peter Wilson came off the bench to toss in 10 points. Two of last season’s standouts, Brandon Malone and Chris Moody, are already sidelined for the season with injuries so Johnson has been preaching the `next player up’ philosophy to his players. “We’re hoping those role players start figuring out the speed and the pace,” he said. “There have been a couple players that have stepped up. Peter Wilson is starting to figure it out. He came off the bench and played well. Jerrod Doran in California played well (49 points). He’s been a spark for us.” Chaparral (3-7) had another tough assignment going against the CHSAANow.com topranked Class 5A team in Denver East Jan. 8 (after the paper’s deadline), and then will head to Class 4A power Lewis Palmer Jan. 11 before opening Continental League action Jan. 17 against Highlands Ranch.

ball over five or six times, you are not going to win the game. A lot of them were forced turnovers. We were trying to force the ball where it’s not open instead of executing and getting something. ... We played poorly.” Arapahoe (7-0) opened play in the tough Centennial League Jan. 8 against Cherry Creek and travels to Smoky Hill for a game Jan. 10. “Of the top 10 teams in the rankings, five are in our league and a couple are just outside of the top 10,” pointed out Snyder. “I’ve seen all the teams in our league and I can say without a doubt this is the strongest the league has been from top to bottom since I’ve been coaching. Mountain Vista (8-1), meanwhile, played at Fountain Fort Carson Jan. 7 and hosted Montbello Jan. 8. “I guess the Arapahoe loss sends a message,” confessed Wood. “Sometimes you think that you are better than you are. Hopefully this will help us. You hope you learn from mistakes and get better. We’ve got a lot of good teams yet to play.”

Rock Canyon this season. “The team was 18-7 last year and, for the most part, they play the type of basketball I coach,” she said of her new squad. “I want the girls to have more discipline on offense. I tell them to take good care of the basketball as they look for the open shot.”

ARIES (Mar 21 to Apr 19) It’s a good time to take a much-needed break from your recent hectic schedule and spend some time in quieter surroundings. Important news could arrive early next week. TAURUS (Apr 20 to May 20) The Taurean traits of reliability and thoroughness could be well-tested when decision-makers consider your proposals and/ or requests. Be prepared to answer some probing questions. GEMINI (May 21 to Jun 20) A sudden attack of boredom leaves you with some tasks undone. It’s OK to take a short respite. But get back to work by week’s end so that you have time for other projects.

CANCER (Jun 21 to Jul 22) Avoid prejudging a situation just because it looks bad. Facts could emerge that would make your position uncomfortable, to say the least. A relative has interesting news to share with you. LEO (Jul 23 to Aug 22) This is a good time to begin reassessing some of your recent decisions about your long-range goals to see if they still have merit. Spend more time with loved ones this weekend. VIRGO (Aug 23 to Sept 22) An unsettled situation at home or on the job early in the week could drain your energy levels, making it difficult to get your work done on schedule. But things improve by midweek. LIBRA (Sept 23 to Oct 22) A temporary setback could give you time to go over your plans to find weaknesses you might have overlooked before. A romantic getaway with that special person is favored this weekend. SCORPIO (Oct 23 to Nov 21) Professional and personal situations benefit once you set a positive tone in getting things off to a good start. Honest dialogue smoothes over any occasional display of balkiness. SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 to Dec 21) A problem with workplace colleagues or family members seems to defy even your sage counsel. But be patient. Your words eventually will lead to a resolution. CAPRICORN (Dec 22 to Jan 19) Don’t just wait out that unexpected and unexplained delay in your career move. You could gain added respect if you ask why it happened and what you can do to move things along. AQUARIUS (Jan 20 to Feb 18) Although your workplace strategies usually are accepted, you could be challenged by someone who isn’t so favorably impressed. Be prepared to defend your positions. PISCES (Feb 19 to Mar 20) Your friendship circle expands, with new people coming into your life at this time. Welcome them warmly. But don’t neglect those cherished longtime personal relationships. BORN THIS WEEK: You love to search for knowledge and share it with others. You would make an especially fine teacher. © 2014 King Features Synd., Inc.
